Inequality, poverty and mobility: Choosing income or consumption as welfare indicators
Carlos Gradín,Olga Cantó,Coral del Río
Investigaciones Económicas , 2008,
Abstract: En la literatura económica se ha discutido en numerosas ocasiones sobre cuál es el mejor indicador para medir el nivel de bienestar de los individuos: la renta o el consumo. Las implicaciones de elegir una u otra variable no se circunscriben sólo al ámbito teórico sino que se muestran extraordinariamente relevantes en el análisis empírico. Hasta el momento, el debate se ha ocupado de cuantificar sus efectos a partir de estudios distributivos estáticos, pero no ha ofrecido evidencia relacionada con la movilidad de rentas o la pobreza medida en términos dinámicos. En este artículo discutimos las debilidades y fortalezas de ambos indicadores y mostramos las consecuencias de elegir uno u otro atendiendo a la dinámica de su distribución, presentando evidencia empírica para el caso espa ol a partir de una encuesta longitudinal rotatoria, la Encuesta Continua de Presupuestos Familiares, que incluye ambas variables.
Usos y desusos de la teoría del viaje y su aplicación a la literatura latinoamericana
Irma Cantú
Trans : Revue de Littérature Générale et Comparée , 2008,
Abstract: Cet article examine les principales théories du voyage et souligne les difficultés d’une approche critique de l’écriture du voyage en Amérique Latine, étant donné que ces théories sont essentiellement liées, à l’origine, aux expériences anglo-saxonnes et fran aises. La théorie du voyage s’est développée à partir de la rencontre entre une culture centrale et dominante - celle qui produit l’écriture -, et une culture périphérique - qui est son objet catalogué, analysé, décrit. Il n’y a aucune théorie du voyage qui analyse la rencontre entre des cultures périphériques - l’Amérique Latine en relation avec l’Asie ou l’Afrique, par exemple. L’objectif de cet article est de déterminer quelles approches théoriques sont les plus appropriées pour élaborer une théorie globale et culturellement plus ouverte qui corresponde précisément à la rencontre de cultures périphériques et d’ouvrir ainsi de nouvelles voies pour des études futures. Uses and Misuses of Travel Writing Theory and its Application to Latin American Literature This article reviews principal travel theories and underlines the difficulties in critically approaching Latin American travel writing, as these theories originated primarily from Anglo and French experiences. Travel theory developed out of the encounter between a dominant and central culture -which produces the written text- and a peripheral culture -which is its catalogued, analyzed and described object. There is no travel theory that deals with the encounter between peripheral cultures -Latin America in relationship with Asia or Africa, for example. The purpose of this article is to determine which theoretical approaches are appropriate for elaborating an inclusive and more culturally open theory that accurately corresponds to the encounter between peripheral cultures, and to propose new avenues for future study. Resumen Este artículo revisa las principales vertientes de la teoría del viaje y expone la dificultad que enfrenta la escritura del viaje producida en América Latina, dado que dichas teorías surgen de la experiencia viajera anglosajona y francesa primordialmente. La teoría del viaje se ha desarrollado a partir del encuentro entre una cultura central y dominante -la que produce la escritura- y una cultura periférica -aquella que es catalogada, analizada, descrita. No hay una teoría que aborde el fenómeno desde el encuentro de periferia a periferia -América Latina mirando a Asia o a áfrica, por ejemplo. El propósito de este trabajo es deslindar qué perspectivas teóricas son las más apropiadas en la elaboración de una teoría culturalme
Comments for Current Interpretation EEG Alpha Activity: A Review and Analysis  [PDF]
Olga Bazanova
Journal of Behavioral and Brain Science (JBBS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jbbs.2012.22027
Abstract: Introduction: Exploring the EEG alpha oscillations generates considerable interest because there is well known its role in cognitive and psycho emotional aspects of human life. However, till now there isn’t well determined definition what is alpha activity phenomena and which indices are characterize it. Method: This article focuses on the attempt to determine EEG alpha-activity phenomena, its physical, molecular and morphological nature, to highlight its indices and their role in optimal functioning. Results: Specifically, this article examines individual alpha activity indices: 1) the individual alpha peak frequency; 2) activation magnitude measured by estimation the amount of alpha amplitude suppression in response to eyes open and individual alpha band width; 3) three alpha “autorhythmicity” indices: intra-spindle amplitude variability, spindle length and steepness. Conclusions: Throughout, the article provides a number of suggestions which alpha activity indices and in which conditions could be applied in psycho physiological investigations, what is their role in optimal functioning and what are possible directions for future research.
Legal Support of Planning in the PRC  [PDF]
Olga Kucher
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2013.42007
Abstract:

Looking at the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) reforms it is necessary to mention that they were not resulted from foreign experts or from other countries experience they were a result of a long term Chinese strategy. This strategy includes such aspects as economy system, social benefits national safety provided that PRC is open to international influence. This long term strategy has its main tools of planning system. With the help of such system government can control all market processes which, for sure, lead to the growth and success in economy. Alongside of such model, Chinese government before and nowadays use methods of direct and indirect regulations as well as administrative influence. It means that such government interference in market process will make state structures powerful and experienced players in this game. It is necessary to say that in the period of globalized world economy multinational corporations started influencing all processes more and more, and we need to review role of government regulation. In this work next step will be directed at legal support and identification of effective government functions which can influence and control private sector. These government functions regulation can help to create balance between state, private assets and international organization in order to have a good basis for competitive world economic position. The article has a purpose to analyze key features of Chinese planning system, distinguish peculiarities and apply to other systems. In the article following methods are used chronological development of the system starting from the beginning; dialectical method of making conclusion basing on facts; and elements of comparative analysis. Result of this article is opportunity to apply such characteristics to other countries.

Modification of Steel Surface Using the Laser Energy Olga Chudina  [PDF]
Olga Chudina
Journal of Surface Engineered Materials and Advanced Technology (JSEMAT) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jsemat.2014.44021
Abstract:

The article is devoted to surface hardening of steels by alloying with the use of laser energy. Two combined technologies were proposed: first—laser alloying by nitride-forming elements followed by nitriding, and secondthe local laser alloying followed by metallization in atmosphere of ammonia. It is shown that laser alloying in continuous radiation forms a layer with a homogeneous fine-grained structure with thickness of 600 microns. The subsequent nitriding increases the microhardness of the surface layer of low-carbon steels to 20,000 MPa, increases wear-resistance in a 3 - 15 times and crack resistance in a 1.5 times. Two-stage technology of metallization allows getting diffusion layer on the surface of steels with the thickness, which is 1.5 - 2 times higher than after traditional metallization. In addition, this method of surface modification can significantly reduce the temperature of diffusion metallization and reduce the processing time to 3 hours. The optimal regimes of both technologies, which provide homogeneous multiphase diffusion layers with high hardness and wear resistance, were determined.

The Significance and Role of Aesthetic Education in Schooling  [PDF]
Olga Denac
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.519190
Abstract: Every child needs planned, aesthetic education in order to influence the experiencing, feeling and enjoying of beautiful things as a counterbalance to our currently rationalized world. Since the contemporary school strives for the development of professional knowledge and skills on the basis of intellectual actions, while (at the same time) neglecting other dimensions of the child’s personality (emotions, feelings, etc.), it is one of the most important tasks of the education of children and young people to develop the ability to enjoy art and beauty, and in one’s inner and outer life to act in accordance with a sense of proportion, harmony and beauty. The purpose of the article is to highlight the significance of aesthetic education in the development of the personality as a whole, to shed light on the aims of aesthetic education, to define the aesthetic dimension of experience and to ascertain the reasons for the neglect of aesthetic education in theory and practice.
Siblings of a Child with a Serious Disease: Educational Family Guidelines for Developing the Emotional Health of This Minority Group  [PDF]
Olga Lizasoain
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.38005
Abstract: Diagnosis of a serious disease in childhood is a traumatic experience, not only for the sick child but also for those living in the same environment. The family life changes drastically, and the family members go through a period of time which is both hard and full of the unknown. Fear, confusion, anger and sadness will be the principal feelings present in each one of the family members. The sick child becomes the central focus of attention at the expense of the other children in the family, children who now take a secondary role, shifting into the background. Therefore, it is very important to offer support and give special care to these other children, not excluding them from everything that is occurring in the family. This article focuses on the feelings experienced by these group of siblings. The adaptation process when facing this difficult situation will be analyzed and educational guidelines which can help the family manage the emotional impact made by the serious disease will be offered, putting special emphasis on communication.
Carrying out the Principle of Horizontal Connectedness and Professional Justification in the Planned Curriculum for Kindergartens in the Field of Music Education  [PDF]
Olga Denac
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.617191
Abstract: The article presented the results of a study which included 159 pre-school teachers from all over Slovenia. The aim of the research was to determine whether teachers in the process of operative planning of the educational process account for the principles of horizontal integration and professional justification. We analyzed the planned curriculum in terms of structure, activities, goals, principles and contents. The results of the research show that the music education has been losing professional autonomy within the field of art, as kindergarten teachers only partially carry out individual principles of the curriculum in the planning of the educational process.
Public Health Nutrition: The Accord of Dietitian Providers in Managing Medicare Chronic Care Outpatients in Australia
Robyn P. Cant
International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.3390/ijerph7041841
Abstract: Medicare Australia: Chronic Disease Management program subsidizes allied health consultations for eligible outpatients with chronic disease or complex needs. In an evaluation study, private practice dietitians (n = 9) were interviewed to explore their patient management strategies including consultation time-allocation and fees. Time allocation was fee-based. Short first consultations were seen as meeting patients’ needs for low-cost services but were regarded by dietitians as ineffective, however longer initial consultations increased cost to patients. No strategy in use was optimal. There is a need for change in Medicare policy to meet the needs of both dietitians and patients in achieving the behaviour change goals of patients.
