Microbial Assessment of Turkey (Meleagris ocellata L.) and Duck (Anas platyrhynchos L.) Faeces (Droppings) in Akure Metropolis  [PDF]
Deke Victoria Adegunloye, Felix Abiodun Adejumo
Advances in Microbiology (AiM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/aim.2014.412085
Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the occurrence of bacteria and fungi in populations of turkey and duck faeces. The prevalence of bacteria and fungi in the faeces of domesticated turkey and ducks (Meleagris ocellata and Anas platyrhynchos) in the City of Akure (Nigeria) was investigated. Five different locations were sampled in Akure Metropolis in April for each of turkey and duck faeces using standard microbiological methods. The microbial load for bacteria ranged from 16.23 × 105 to 30.04 × 105 cfu/g and 12.60 × 105 to 46.01 × 105 cfu/g for turkey and duck faeces respectively while the fungal count ranged from 12.38 × 105 to 28.05 × 105 s/g and 10.60 × 105 to 34.09 × 105 s/g for turkey and duck faeces respectively. The following bacteria were isolated from turkey faeces: Azomonas agilis, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Sarcina maxima, Thiocapsa lumicola, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp., Xanthomonas fragariae and Streptococcus spp. while Aeromonas hydrophila, Bacillus cereus, Echerichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Lactobacillus spp., Sarcina maxima, Streptobacillus moniliformis, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp and Streptococcus spp. were isolated from duck faces. Bacteria common to both turkey and duck faeces are Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Sarcina maxima, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp. and Streptococcus spp. The fungal species isolated includes Mucor spp., Cladosporium spp., Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillus flavus, Alternaria sp., Candida
Theoretical Orientations of Turkish Counselor Trainees: The Role of Thinking Styles, Epistemology and Curiosity  [PDF]
Ilkay Demir, Esra Ismen Gazioglu
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.37077
Abstract: Counselors vary in personality traits, worldviews, epistemic values, cognitive styles, and developmental influences, and these variations in return effect their choice of a guiding theory. This study addresses the variables associated with the theoretical orientations of Turkish psychological counseling students. Participants completed measures of curiosity, thinking styles, epistemological beliefs and a questionnaire on their theoretical choices. Three separate discriminant analysis were conducted to understand which variables differentiate between theoretical orientations. Results of the discriminant analysis revealed that conservative and liberal thinking styles and absorption dimension of curiosity differentiated between theoretical orientations.

This study was conducted with a 12-month period between January 2010 and December 2010. The chosen pilot farm is raising fish (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The water of Akcay River is used on farm. Some limnological parameters (dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, EC, nitrite, nitrate, orthophosphate, minerals) were investigated for determining the water quality of zone.

The Impact of Sincerity of Terrorists on Committing Terrorist Activities in Turkey  [PDF]
Ahmet Turer, Robyn Diehl McDougle
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.39034
Abstract: Research Summary: This study explores the impact of sincerity of terrorists on committing terrorist activities in Turkey. One of the researchers is a Chief of Police in Turkey and has worked in the Anti-terror Department for a considerable part of his professional career. His professional experience has shown that the more sincere a terrorist is the more violent or heedless the terrorist activity is. Thus this research academically and statistically examines this observation and finds that sincerity affects the level of violence. Attachment and adherence to the terrorist organization turn even the characteristically non-violent people into blood seeking terrorists. Policy Implications: Terrorism is still one of the major challenges that the contemporary world faces today. Governments, policy makers, and other stakeholders have great difficulty identifying effective legal mechanisms for fighting terrorism, mainly because of uncertainties regarding both the targets and offenders of terrorist acts. The current study suggests two types of policy implementations. The first is to improve socioeconomic conditions so that people will be less vulnerable to terrorist recruitment, a tactic that requires the identification of risk groups. The second is to detect terrorists and their networks, a tactic that requires the use of different types of intelligence and preventive interventions in the locations that terrorists primarily use for recruitment. The former implementation is a long-term and large-scale project, whereas the latter one is a short-term, small-scale project that appears to be more promising. The two are, however, interrelated. Simply implementing the second tactic could prevent terrorism, but in the absence of the first tactic, terrorist groups will likely find other fertile ground in which to flourish.
Florida Turkey Nest Site Selection and Success  [PDF]

Natural Resources (NR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2016.711051
Abstract: Changing landscapes and land-use practices are altering habitat for Florida wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo osceola). However, an understanding of habitat determinants of nest success is lacking for this unique turkey subspecies, potentially limiting conservation success. We examined female wild turkey nest site selection and nest success at microhabitat and patch levels using logistic regression in an Information-Theoretical framework in Florida, 2008-2010. We captured and radio-equipped adult female turkeys, and followed birds to nests. Nests were monitored to document success, and habitat was measured at multiple levels at nest and random sites. Females selected nest sites in dense vegetation (i.e., increased saw palmetto cover [Serenoa repens] and higher palm stem densities) that may have provided lateral and vertical cover for concealment at the microhabitat level (i.e., area within 7 m of the nest), while selecting for a more open habitat (i.e., decreasing hardwood and conifer stem densities) at the patch level (i.e., area within 28 m of the nest). Similarly, successful nests were in more dense vegetation at the nest site (i.e., increased saw palmetto cover) in an otherwise more open habitat (i.e., lower basal area) than unsuccessful nests. Habitat management that creates patches of dense shrub vegetation such as saw palmetto within an open landscape may be best for Florida wild turkey nesting habitat and success.
Amalgamation and Small-Scale Gold Mining at Ancient Sardis, Turkey  [PDF]
William E. Brooks, Hüseyin ?ztürk, Zeynep Cansu
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.51003
Abstract: In the ancient world gold was mined mainly from alluvial occurrences using gravity methods combined with the use of mercury (amalgamation), a method that is still used today in small-scale alluvial gold mines worldwide. Cyanide, which was first used in the 1880s, is used in large-scale hardrock mines to recover gold, silver, copper, and other metals from porphyry and disseminated ore deposits. Therefore, amalgamation must be considered, or specifically in the case of Sardis, reconsidered as the technology for ancient alluvial gold mining. Evidence that includes: the availability of cinnabar, the ore of mercury; an ancient mercury retort; ancient use of cinnabar as a pigment and mercury for gilding and amalgamation; the very fine-grained alluvial gold at Sardis; and the composition of the end-product gold, a Byzantine coin. These all indicate that amalgamation must be considered as the mining technology that supplied gold to Sardis’ ancient refineries and craftsmen.
A Relational Sociological Study on the Effects of Uncertainties in the Case of Influenza in Turkey  [PDF]
Aytul Kasapoglu
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2017.811058
Abstract: Health issues, especially global health issues, are important subjects of study for many sociologists. For example, the spread of influenza as a pandemic affects a large number of people and their emotions in terms of fear, becoming a social problem instead of a psychological issue. Because of uncertainties, what is happening and what people should do during global threats is not clear for many people generally and during pandemics specifically. The primary aim of this paper is to show the construction process of fear and risk by conducting a systematic review of former studies about the influenza that occurred in Turkey during the last 10 years. It is assumed that a combination of relational sociology and the sociology of disaster and development will provide an appropriate theoretical framework. In other words, H. White and his uncertainty typology along with A.E. Collins’ classification are both used to define the construction process of fear as a culture, starting with uncertainty and moving to alienation and finally normalization. Findings from this study, which are supported by N. Elias’ and U. Beck’s methodological considerations, revealed that uncertainties may lead to negative consequences, such as alienation. Due to conflicting information, people find themselves in a dilemma and they stop following norms and rules in terms of normlessness. Normlessness, as a sub-division of alienation along with meaningless, might result in negative actions, such as not getting vaccinated. Liminality, turning points and footing are also used to describe the construction process of fear and risk. Results also showed that over a 10-year period many things are normalized and people no longer panic as easily.

The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2006,
Abstract: Greetings Dear readers of TOJDE, I am pleased to inform you that in the 7th year of TOJDE is appeared on your screen now as Volume 7, Number: 1. Very much thanks to all of you once more that we met with you 22nd time, since January 2000. In this issue we published 15 articles like before issue, three book reviews, news and announcements for our readers. And also, we cancelled for the Call for Papers to the 4th Special Issue of The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education (Volume: 7, Number: 2) which would be delivered in April 2006, instead of this issue, for the reason that have not enough quality papers for publishing on special theme. 36 authors from eight different countries are pleaced in this issue. These published articles are from Bangaldesh, Brasil, Canada, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Turkey, UK and USA In this issue two articles are dealt with English Language Teacher Training (DELTT) Program application in Turkey, by Anadolu University. I gave a place to them as the fist and the last article. The first article of this issue is coming from The Anadolu University, which is written by Belgin AYDIN and T. Volkan YUZER. They are assistant professor at Anadolu’s Education and Open Education Faculty. Their article titled as “Building a Synchronous Virtual Classroom in a Distance English Language Teacher Training (DELTT) Program in Turkey”. Their paper reports a synchronous project, “the virtual classroom” prepared for the Distance English Language Teacher Training (DELTT) Program. The process of developing the synchronous project and the interface with its specific components were reported with examples and supported by theoretical background from the related literature. The evaluation of the project concludes that the virtual classroom facilitated increased authentic interaction and encouraged learners to become more autonomous. Second article is dealt with internet use adoption among academicians which is written as joint article by Norazah BTE MOHD SUKI and Norbayah BTE MOHD SUKI from Malaysia. In their study which entitled as “INTERNET USE ADOPTION AMONG ACADEMICIANS: Comparing Innovative Adopters and Other Adopter Types”, mentioned that how Internet use differs between academicians who are innovative adopters and other types of adopters. Data were collected from 301 respondents. Results provide new perspective on innovative adopters among Malaysian academicians; they have less experience than other adopters in shopping for products online, make fewer purchases online and pay small amount of money in shopping for products online than other adop

Melis Na?ar, Fevziye ?etinkaya, Zeynep Baykan, Serpil Poyrazo?lu, Osman Günay
World Journal of Vaccines (WJV) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/wjv.2011.12005
Abstract: In this study, establishing the knowledge about adult vaccination and voluntary vaccination state of adults in the prov-ince centre of Kayseri was aimed. This descriptive study was performed in 2009 May-July, in 6 public health centres (PHC) in the province centre of Kayseri, by way of a questionnaire. 998 adults from the population of an area covered by 34 family practitioners, working under six public health care centres, in the province centre of Kayseri, were asked to fill a questionnaire. Chi-square test was used in the statistical analysis and p < 0.05 was accepted as significant. The mean age of the participants was 37.4 ± 14.1 and 56.7% were female. 75.8% of the individuals knew that adults had to be vaccinated and 55.3% that influenza vaccination had to be done every year. 97.9% of the participants were aware of influenza vaccinLation, and the rate of vaccination was 7.8%, 97.8% knew tetanus vaccination, the awareness rate of hepatitis B vaccination was 84.4%, and vaccination rate 25.6%, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) was known by 44.4%, vaccination rate in women was 1.1%, pneumococcus vaccination was known by 19.8% and vaccination rate was 0.4%. 22.0% of the individuals 65 years old and above had got an influenza vaccination while non-had got a pneumococcus vaccination. It is found that the tetanus, influenza, and hepatitis vaccinations were highly known, whereas, HPV and pneumococcus vaccinations were not, and that the number of individuals stating that they had been vaccinated was quite low.
