The succession process at social enterprises in Brazil
Godói-de-Sousa, Edileusa;Fischer, Rosa Maria;
Revista de Administra??o (S?o Paulo) , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0080-21072012000300011
Abstract: this research was based on a study of social enterprises in brazil, to find out if and how these organizations plan and manage the succession process for their senior positions. the study investigated the subset of the associations dedicated to collectively producing goods and services, because they are formally set up and aimed at speeding up the dynamism of local development. the empirical research consisted of two stages. the first was a survey covering a sample of 378 organizations, to find out which of those had already undergone or were undergoing a succession process. the second interviewed the main manager of 32 organizations, to obtain a description of their succession experience. in this stage, the research aimed to analyze how the individual, organization and environment dimensions interact to configure the succession process, identifying which factors of each of these dimensions can facilitate or limit this process. the following guiding elements were taken as the analytical basis: individual dimension - leadership roles, skill and styles; organization dimension - structure, planning, advisory boards, communication (transparency), control and evaluation; and environment dimension - influence of the stakeholders (community, suppliers, clients, and business partners) on the succession process. the results indicated that succession in the researched associations is in the construction stage: it adapts to the requirements of current circumstances but is evidently in need of improvement in order for more effective planning and shared management of the process to be achieved.
Self-repairing material systems―a dream or a reality?  [PDF]
Hartmut Fischer
Natural Science (NS) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2010.28110
Abstract: Currently, most industrial materials rely entirely on passive protection mechanisms; such me chanisms are readily applicable and universal for many different materials systems. However, they will always stay passive, and therefore their lifetime and functionality is limited and related to the amount of protective additives and the intensity of their consumption. Therefore, better, and preferentially active process for the protection/repair of damaged materials―selfrepairing processes―were developed and need to be developed further. Although it sounds futuristic or like a fiction in the modern, trendy times, which in many ways affects also directions of research; self healing of material systems exists already for a long time in all sorts of systems of materials or functionalities. The aim of this work is to go beyond the scope of a classical review the ones published recently in this field which almost entirely focused only onto polymeric systems. In this work, an analysis of the underlying functional and constructional principles of existing natural and synthetically selfhealing systems spanning over a range of classes of materials is given leading to general rules and principles for the design of new and application tailored selfhealing material systems.
The Definition of Density in General Relativity  [PDF]
Ernst Fischer
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2017.74025
Abstract: According to general relativity the geometry of space depends on the distribution of matter or energy fields. The relation between the local geometrical parameters and the volume enclosed in given limits varies with the distribution of matter. Thus properties like particle number, mass or energy density, defined in the Euclidean tangent space, cannot be integrated to give conserved integral data like total number, mass or energy. To obtain integral conservation, a correction term must be added to account for the curvature of space. For energy this correction term is the equivalent of potential energy in Newtonian gravitation. With this correction the formation of black holes in the sense of singularities by gravitational collapse does no longer occur and the so called dark energy finds its natural explanation as potential energy of matter itself.
On the Ontology of Structural Realism  [PDF]
Markus Fischer
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2019.91008
Abstract: Due to its systemic approach, structural realism (or neorealism) can be subsumed under methodological holism, which takes social phenomena to be wholes that cannot be reduced to their parts. The wholes posited by structural realism are the state and the international structure. Recent developments in the philosophy of social science suggest that methodological holism ought to be limited to causal explanation and complemented by ontological individualism, which requires an account of how social wholes derive from individuals. Structural realism lacks such an account because it takes the state as an empirical given, mistaking for a fact what is really a concept in need of deductive derivation from individuals. To bring the theory methodologically up to date, this essay undertakes such a derivation of the state from individuals, proceeding in the deductive manner of political theory. It thus provides structural realism with a methodologically valid ontology, which, in turn, enables the theory to better defend itself against liberal and constructivist critics who reduce the state to a transient phenomenon.

Oliveira, Edileusa Borges Porto;Alencar, Eunice Maria Lima Soriano de;
Estudos de Psicologia (Campinas) , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-166X2012000400009
Abstract: the main purpose of this study was to explore pedagogical coordinators' perception of the importance of teachers' development/expression of creativity, investigated by means of interviews with 12 *elementary school pedagogical coordinators from private schools in brasilia, federal district. the interviews were audio taped and transcribed. content analysis was used to analyze the data. the results indicated that according to all coordinators, the presence of creativity in school life is very important, especially in teaching practice. according to the participants, the teacher must be creative mainly for reasons related to the students. the increase in the student's interest and incentive, the attribution of significance to knowledge, the facilitation of student's learning, as well as the attention to the student's educational needs were highlighted by the pedagogical coordinators to justify the importance of teachers' creativity.
Generality Challenges and Approaches in WSNs  [PDF]
Fadi TIRKAWI, Stefan FISCHER
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2009.21007
Abstract: Ignoring the generality in the design of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) applications limits their benefits. Furthermore, the possibilities of future extension and adaptation are also restricted. In this paper, several methods to enhance the generality in WSNs are explained. We have further evaluated the suitability of these methods in centralized and de-centralized management scenarios.

Ciência Rural , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-84782005000600036
Abstract: safflower may be an interesting option for the flower market, either as fresh or dried cut flower. estimating the leaf appearance rate and the phyllochron (the time interval between the appearance of successive leaves) is important for calculating the number of emerged leaves (nl) on the plant, which is an excellent measure of plant development. the objective of this study was to estimate the leaf appearance rate and the phyllochron in safflower (carthamus tinctorius l.). an experiment was conducted in santa maria, rs, brazil, inside an 8 x 15m plastic greenhouse. sowing was on 03 october 2003 and emergence was on 08 october 2003. the experimental design was a randomized complete block design with three replications. the main stem nl was measured twice a week from 24 october 2003 to 15 november 2003 in four plants per replication. daily growing degree days above a base temperature (5°c) and accumulated thermal time (tt) were calculated. the nl was linearly regressed against tt. the angular coefficient of the linear regression is the lar (leaves/ °c day) and the phyllochron (°c days/leaf) was estimated by the inverse of the angular coefficient of the linear regression. the lar was 0.0467 ± 0.0203 leaves/ °c day and the phyllochron was 25.5 ± 14.6°c days/leaf.

GEST?O.Org : Revista Eletr?nica de Gest?o Organizacional , 2010,
Abstract: This article focuses on the alliance between a third sector organization and the government, andthe articulations of the former as strategy in quest of sustainability. The objective was toinvestigate the feasibility of an alliance betweenan NGO and the City Hall, and how this alliance isset within a strategic process. The categories of analysis that led to the empirical study wereguided by the following dimensions: the forms, thenature of relationships and the types of linksamong those involved. The predominant approach wasof descriptive qualitative character. For data collection, the techniques of semi-structured interviews and analysis of documents were adopted.The analysis and interpretation were obtained by means of data triangulation. The results showedthat the NGO under study was able to become closer to the government, by attending part of thegovernment s demand, by offering quality care at reduced cost. Thus, the bind which should bebased on cooperation is also one of assistance. Butthere was also an opportunity for the NGO toexpand its area of operations, and learn about theinner workings of governments, decision-makingmechanisms and implementation of policies, thus enabling a better dialogue.

Abstract: Safflower may be an interesting option for the flower market, either as fresh or dried cut flower. Estimating the leaf appearance rate and the phyllochron (the time interval between the appearance of successive leaves) is important for calculating the number of emerged leaves (NL) on the plant, which is an excellent measure of plant development. The objective of this study was to estimate the leaf appearance rate and the phyllochron in safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.). An experiment was conducted in Santa Maria, RS, Brazil, inside an 8 x 15m plastic greenhouse. Sowing was on 03 October 2003 and emergence was on 08 October 2003. The experimental design was a randomized complete block design with three replications. The main stem NL was measured twice a week from 24 October 2003 to 15 November 2003 in four plants per replication. Daily growing degree days above a base temperature (5degreesC) and accumulated thermal time (TT) were calculated. The NL was linearly regressed against TT. The angular coefficient of the linear regression is the LAR (leaves/ degreesC day) and the phyllochron (degreesC days/leaf) was estimated by the inverse of the angular coefficient of the linear regression. The LAR was 0.0467 ? 0.0203 leaves/ degreesC day and the phyllochron was 25.5 ? 14.6degreesC days/leaf.
Sexual assaults in therapeutic relationships: prevalence, risk factors and consequences  [PDF]
C. Eichenberg, M. Becker-Fischer, G. Fischer
Health (Health) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/health.2010.29150
Abstract: A law has been passed in Germany (paragraph 174c StGB), which prohibits therapists from having sexual contact with their patients. This provides the background for a follow-up survey to the previous study completed by Becker- Fischer and Fischer in 1995. The results of this survey are discussed here on the basis of the current status of research concerning preva- lence and risk factors of sexual assaults in therapeutic relationships. The focus of the re- search lies in determining the specific condi- tions of sexual assaults in psychotherapy and psychiatry, risk variables of the therapists and patients, the effects it has on the patients as well as the legal consequences it results in. To en- sure the comparability of the data, an online version of the Questionnaire about Sexual Con- tacts in Psychotherapy and Psychiatry (SKPP; Becker-Fischer, Fischer & Jerouschek) was cre- ated and a survey of N = 77 affected patients was conducted. The majority of the participants in the study reported a serious decline in their overall well being following the incident. How- ever only very few undertook legal steps - only in three cases did it come to a legal procedure. The assumption that sexual contacts in psy- chotherapy result in extremely damaging con- sequences to patients, was affirmed. Despite the changed legal situation, therapists in Ger- many are still not held legally responsible more often than they were 10 years ago. Based on these results a more intensive education of the patients concerning their legal rights is recom- mended.
