Understanding the Contributing Factors to Nighttime Crashes at Freeway Mainline Segments  [PDF]
Hongyun Chen, Kristiansson Fanny
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2019.94028
Abstract: This study investigated the crash contributing factors to the injury outcomes and the characteristics of the night time crashes at freeway mainline segments. Multinomial logit model (MNL) was selected to estimate the explanatory variables at a 95% confidence level. The six-year crash data (2005-2010) were obtained in the State of Florida, USA and five injury level outcomes, no injury, possible injury, non-incapacitating injury, capacitating injury, and fatal injury, were considered. The no injury level was selected as the baseline category.
Pregnancy related back pain, is it related to aerobic fitness? A longitudinal cohort study
Eva Thorell, Per Kristiansson
BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2393-12-30
Abstract: A cohort of pregnant women, recruited from maternal health care centers in central Sweden, were examined regarding estimated peak oxygen uptake by cycle ergometer test in early pregnancy, reported physical activity prior to pregnancy, basic characteristics, back pain during pregnancy and back pain postpartum.Back pain during the current pregnancy was reported by nearly 80% of the women. At the postpartum appointment this prevalence was 40%. No association was displayed between estimated peak oxygen uptake and incidence of back pain during and after pregnancy, adjusted for physical activity, back pain before present pregnancy, previous deliveries, age and weight. A significant inverse association was found between estimated peak oxygen uptake and back pain intensity during pregnancy and a direct association post partum, in a fully adjusted multiple linear regression analysis.Estimated peak oxygen uptake and reported physical activity in early pregnancy displayed no influence on the onset of subsequent back pain during or after pregnancy, where the time sequence support the hypothesis that poorer physical deconditioning is not a cause but a consequence of the back pain condition. The mechanism for the attenuating effect of increased oxygen uptake on back pain intensity is uncertain.Chronic medical conditions are in focus for the development of strategies aimed at improving population health worldwide. This is also true for chronic pain conditions leading to impaired or non-existent ability to exercise, as physical inactivity is associated with development of chronic diseases. Musculoskeletal disorders constitute an estimated 90% of all chronic pain, of which back pain contributes to a high extent.During pregnancy there is a remarkably increased prevalence of low back pain, as compared with the non-pregnant state. Prevalence rates between 61% and 88% of back pain with onset during current pregnancy are reported, as compared with one-year prevalence of back pain, irresp
Scalar Field Corrections to AdS_4 Gravity from Higher Spin Gauge Theory
Fredric Kristiansson,Peter Rajan
Physics , 2003, DOI: 10.1088/1126-6708/2003/04/009
Abstract: We compute the complete contribution to the stress-energy tensor in the minimal bosonic higher spin theory in D=4 that is quadratic in the scalar field. We find arbitrarily high derivative terms, and that the total sign of the stress-energy tensor depends on the parity of the scalar field.
Wound String Scattering in NCOS Theory
Fredric Kristiansson,Peter Rajan
Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1016/S0370-2693(01)00204-0
Abstract: We calculate the amplitude for a non-excited closed string with nonzero winding number to scatter from a D-string with a near critical E field. We go to the NCOS limit and observe that we get the same result if we adopt another approach put forward by Gomis and Ooguri.
浙江大学学报(农业与生命科学版) , 2000,
Abstract: Oilseed rape seeds (Brassica napus L.) harvested from mature plants require only imbibition of water and a suitable temperature. Despite this absence of primary dormancy, there is evidence that rapeseeds, due to the induction of secondary dormancy, are able to persist in the field for up to 10 years, and thus can emerge as volunteer plants in later crops. In addition, volunteers originate from seeds shed before and during harvest. The level of seed losses is influenced by the timing and technique of harvest, and can reach several thousand seeds per m2. As a consequence of both these effects, problems from volunteer rape occur frequently in subsequent crops.   Volunteer rape has been particularly troublesome in broad-leaved crops. It is a highly competitive weed and due to its prolonged period of emergence, timing of herbicide application is sometimes a problem. Volunteer rape can contaminate the sown crop resulting in heterogenous mixtures of seeds. This not only affects breeding and the production of seed crops, but can also affect growers when they switch from one type or quality of rape to another, or if they grow different rape qualities in one rotation, e.g., rapeseed for human consumption in the normal rotation and rapeseed for industrial use on set-aside land. The problem will not disappear with the introduction of herbicide resistant oilseed rape, as there are no indications that seeds of these cultivars will not have the potential to persist. The ability of rapeseed to persist in the soil for a long time and at high percentages also has to be taken into account in risk assessment of genetically manipulated rape, as rape can escape in space by pollen transfer or in time via the soil seedbank. Although hybridization between oilseed rape and wild crucifers is infrequent, it does occur. Traits, such as herbicide resistance or pest and disease resistance, if transferred into wild plants have the potential to alter the agro-ecosystem significantly.……
Traiter des suicides sans Durkheim : analyses et méthodes d’action de la psychodynamique du travail.
Fanny Darbus,Fanny Jedlicki
EspacesTemps.net , 2010,
Abstract: Paru fin 2009, l’ouvrage du psychanalyste Christophe Dejours et de la psychologue Florence Bègue s’inscrit au c ur d’une actualité sociale tragique : l’augmentation des suicides liés au travail. De ce point de vue, la médiatisation sans précédent du nombre croissant de suicides parmi les salariés de France Télécom constitue la partie émergée de l’iceberg. C’est dans un contexte politique et social particulier, où les enjeux sont également économiques et ...
Algunas anécdotas sobre las peripecias de los archivos de Jujuy: Reflexiones sobre la legislación y valoraciones sobre su importancia como patrimonio cultural
Cuadernos de la Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales. Universidad Nacional de Jujuy , 2002,
Abstract: this paper takes into consideration jujuy′s public and private document files from its foundation to the present. firstly we will refer to the historical comings an goings leading to the dispersion or disappearance of documents belonging to the present-day province of jujuy from early times to these days. secondly, we wil analyse the legislation pertaining provincial public documents files (1) and the political tendencies revealed in such legislation about the whereabouts and importance of the document sources. thereafter, we will proceed to consider private document files existing in the province and the necessity of their cataloguing in order to appraise such documentation so that researchers and public in general could access them as valuable elements of co-operation in their approach to jujuy′s history. finally we will formulate some considerations about the importance granted to document files and his public records offices by the province and society as a whole, not only as heritage to be safeguarded but fundamentally as a "future memory", which should be regarded as an invaluable resort for the reconstruction of our history - not the history woven by suspicious readings - but also as an approach to reality which will contribute to a new formulation of our identity as a result of our past.
Corpus linguistics and second/foreign language learning: exploring multiple paths
Meunier, Fanny;
Revista Brasileira de Linguística Aplicada , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-63982011000200008
Abstract: the aim of this article is twofold: first, to briefly assess the influence that corpus linguistic research has had on second/foreign language learning so far, and second, to suggest future directions for a more coherent and well thought out integration of corpora in instructed settings. in section 1, the influence of native and learner corpus research on second/foreign language learning will be assessed in turn, and some reasons for the overall lack of uptake of corpora in educational contexts will be put forward. in section 2, i will argue that multiple paths will have to be explored for a better integration of corpora in instructed settings. the fact that various - and sometimes even radically opposite - directions will be proposed might appear conflicting at first sight, but it will be demonstrated that opting for a multiplicity of perspectives is the only way to lay the foundations of a healthy cross-fertilizationbetween corpus linguistics and the current multi-faceted language learning and teaching cultures.
Las organizaciones de hoy son multiculturales
Signo y Pensamiento , 2007,
Abstract: today, a large number of organizations and companies are multicultural, not only because they operate in countries or environments where several cultures meet, but also because they are exposed to a wide variety of values and practices. this diversity forces us to think about how new organizations develop their own culture and practices. hofstede sustains that, unlike national cultures, corporate cultures do not involve the question of sharing values but of having common practices. thus, corporate practices must be analyzed in order to recognize diversity and to solve differences.
Scènes d’Empire : représentation des spectacles ethnographiques dans la littérature et les arts visuels européens au temps des conquêtes coloniales
Fanny Robles
Synergies Canada , 2011,
Abstract: Au cours des dernières décennies du 19e siècle, le partage du continent africain co ncide avec l’apogée des spectacles ethnographiques en Europe. En tournée dans les zoos, les cabarets et les champs de foire européens, ainsi que dans les expositions coloniales et universelles, ces représentations mettent en scène des groupes d’individus indigènes des régions récemment colonisées ou sur le point de l’être. Alors que la France, la Grande-Bretagne et l’Allemagne s’affrontent à l’étranger pour affirmer leur pouvoir colonial, ces pays accueillent les mêmes spectacles dans leurs capitales respectives comme dans leurs villes de province. Notre étude se propose d’examiner la fa on dont ils ont été représentés dans la littérature et les arts visuels européens, à partir d’exemples empruntés à la France, à l’Angleterre, à l’Allemagne et à l’Autriche-Hongrie. Si ce type de spectacle conduit à l’exposition d’une grande variété de peuples, et ne se limite en aucun cas à des groupes en provenance d’Afrique, notre article se cantonne à des uvres mettant en scène des exposés originaires de ce continent. En traitant les créations en question comme autant de signaux culturels , pour reprendre l’expression de Jean Devisse, il cherche à dégager les types de consommation visuelle ou littéraire que ces productions artistiques semblent susciter. Nous adoptons une optique essentiellement rhétorique pour tenter de déterminer les différents types d’identification sollicités chez le lecteur/consommateur, qu’il s’agisse d’une consommation impérialiste na ve du sauvage animal, d’une forme de compassion civilisatrice qui peut en temps de guerre se changer en méfiance, ou encore d’une complicité érotique qui va jusqu’à esquisser une contestation de l’ethnocentrisme.
