Kinematic Elicitation of Basic Emotions: A Validation Study in an Italian Sample  [PDF]
Cesare Maffei, Emanuela Roder, Claudia Cortesan, Francesca Passera, Massimo Rossi, Martina Segrini, Raffaele Visintini, Andrea Fossati
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.59119

Video clips proved to effectively elicit different emotions. Hewig and colleagues (2005) developed a comprehensive set collecting 20 emotional film clips and investigated the basic emotions elicited in a German sample. In this study, we tested the reproducibility of their findings in Italian nonclinical adult subjects (N = 32) examined individually in an ecological setting; moreover, the differences between presentation modalities (with and without sound) were examined. Clips were rated on 10 emotional states (serene, amused, happy, surprised, sad, scared, angry, disgusted, indignant, tense) and on two bipolar dimensions of valence and intensity. Only little differences between presentation modalities were found; stories depicted proved to be clear enough. Film clips elicited the expected emotional profiles, and their rank order for each emotion is almost comparable with the German ones. However, all the clips elicited more than one emotion: ANCOVA proved that emotions were not fully independent and specific association patterns were found. Implications are discussed in the light of the complexity of emotional activation.

Grazing Management of Temperate Grasslands and Fallows
Walter Roder
Journal of Bhutan Studies , 2002,
Abstract: The paper provides a general overview of fodder resources andtheir management in temperate Bhutan (altitude range of1500-3000m). The terms are used as defined by RC-Jakar(RNR-RC-Jakar, 1996). As per these definitions, temperatepasture can include any kind of land used for grazing. Whenreferring to registered grassland or tsamdro, only the termtsamdrog is used. Where possible, the term pasture isreplaced with more specific or more appropriate terms.
Selfconsistent calculations of sigma-meson properties at finite temperature
Dirk Roder
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: I study the properties of the scalar sigma-meson [also referred to as f_0(600)] at nonzero temperature in the O(N)-model in the framework of the Cornwall-Jackiw-Tomboulis formalism. In the standard Hartree (or large-N) approximation one only takes into account the double-bubble diagrams in the effective potential. I improve this approximation by additionally taking into account the sunset diagrams, which lead to 4-momentum dependent real and imaginary parts of the Dyson-Schwinger equations. By solving these and the equation for the chiral condensate selfconsistently, one obtains the decay width and the spectral density of the sigma-meson. I compare the results in the case with explicit chiral symmetry breaking with the chiral limit. I found that the 4-momentum dependent real part of the selfenergy does not lead to major qualitative changes in the spectral density.
Rupturas e continuidades no padr?o organizacional e decisório do Ministério das Rela??es Exteriores
Figueira, Ariane Roder;
Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-73292010000200001
Abstract: the aim of this article is to understand how the decision process in brazil's foreign policy is structured, with an emphasis on the inter-bureaucratic dynamics during 20 years (1988-2007), marked out by the time restrictions of the research. therefore, indicators were established, which allow investigation of the conclusions as to whether decision-making is centralized or horizontalized in its intra-bureaucratic structure, whether it is insulated from or open to dialogue with other government agencies.

Environmental Policy and Firm Investment Behaviour when Energy Saving Technologies are Available  [PDF]
Emanuela Giusi Gaeta
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2010.13020
Abstract: This paper investigates upon the effects of taxation on firm investment behaviour in presence of alternative energy (oil) saving technologies and scarce resources in competitive markets. Socially optimal policies are compared to a decentralized regulatory framework: the paper shows that taxation affects the adoption of different energy saving technologies hence the aggregate amount of energy saving. To our knowledge, there are few works that underline the relationship between environmental policies and firms’ incentives to adopt oil saving technologies. For this reason, we follow the theoretical literature focusing on the effects of environmental policy applied to pollution and climate change by adapting it to the energy saving perspective. We perform a static comparison of environmental policies to show that different levels of the same instrument lead to different results in terms of the number of firms adopting energy saving technologies; multiple equilibrium are possible but there is only one which is socially optimal.
Environmental Policies and Firm Behavior with Endogenous Investment in R & D  [PDF]
Emanuela Giusi Gaeta
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2010.12009
Abstract: This paper investigates upon the optimal amount of oil usage in an economy characterized by competitive firms and by a monopolistic innovator. It is close in spirit to Denicolo 1999 and Parry 2003. There are two alternative oil saving technologies: the conventional one is promptly available to firms while the advanced one, providing more efficiency in oil saving, must be paid to the monopolistic innovator. By assuming that innovation follows a Poisson process, whose arrival rate depends on the amount of resources invested in R & D, we show that central authority provides higher level of social welfare than market instruments.
“I Am Getting Healthier”. Perceptions of Urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in a Chronic Disease Self-Management and Rehabilitation Program  [PDF]
Alison Nelson, Kyly Mills, Samara Dargan, Chantel Roder
Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.86057
Abstract: Chronic disease is a main contributor to the disproportionately high burden of illness experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. However, there are very few programs addressing chronic disease self-management and rehabilitation which are designed specifically for urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This paper aims to explore client and staff perceptions of the Work It out Program, a chronic disease rehabilitation and self-management program designed for urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The study used a mixed methods approach to explore the success, barriers and self-reported outcomes of the program. Quantitative data were collected through a structured survey, comprising social and demographic data. Qualitative data were collected through interviews using Most Significant Change theory. Twenty-eight participants were recruited, 6 staff and 22 clients (M = 7, F = 21) with an age range between 21 and 79 years of age (Mean = 59.00, SD = 17.63). Interviews were completed in 2013 across four Work It out locations in Southeast Queensland. Semi-structured interviews were conducted either individually or in groups of two or three, depending on the participants’ preference. Thematic analysis of the data revealed six main themes; physical changes, lifestyle improvements, social and emotional well-being, perceptions about the successful features of the program, perceived barriers to the program and changes for the future. This exploratory study found that clients and staff involved in the Work It out Program perceived it as an effective self-management and rehabilitation program for urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Further evaluation with a larger sample size is warranted in order to establish further outcomes of the program.
