Music Education, Aesthetics, and the Measure of Academic Achievement  [PDF]
Karl Madden, David Orenstein, David Orenstein, Alexei Oulanov, Yelena Novitskaya, Ida Bazan, Thomas Ostrowski, Min Hyung Ahn
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.519194
Abstract: Grades and test scores are the traditional measurement of academic achievement. Quantitative improvements on standardized scores in Math/Science/Language are highly-coveted outcomes for meeting accreditation standards required for institutional program funding. Music and the Fine Arts, difficult to assess by traditional academic achievement measurement, and often devalued as so-called “luxury” subjects, struggle for necessary funding. Showing measureable collateral value to other academic subjects—such as math—in order to justify music program funding is dubious. To objectify the purpose of music education in terms of its influence on other subjects is to overlook aesthetic value. The scholarly literature recognizes an historical tendency to correlate music activities and aptitude to other subjects (and to intelligence in general), but quantitative cause-effect claims are not supported scientifically. Music participation from childhood helps build productive, well-socialized, excellent people, but to quantitatively trace the cause to music itself remains unproven. To recognize the benefits of music and the arts by aesthetic merit involves practical, holistic views of education not based on quantifiable test scoring.
Recovery of nigrostriatal dopaminergic system insufficiency by allotransplantation of embryonic brain tissue  [PDF]
Olga Berchenko, Yelena Usmentseva
World Journal of Neuroscience (WJNS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/wjns.2013.34032

In an experiment in rats with electrolytic lesion of the compact part of substantia nigra (SN) and after allotransplantation of the embryonic tissue of SN in the caudate nucleus the features of movement and emotional behavior in the Open Field Test (OFT), the rotation movements caused by an administration of amphetamine, a content of catecholamines in the caudate nucleus, hypothalamus and blood plasma have been investigated. It is shown that the electrolytic lesion causes violations of the statokinetic reflexes, the horizontal and the vertical movement activity, enhances the rotatory behavior, slow the orienttate-searching and the emotional reactions that combined with disbalance in dopamine-and noradrenalinetransmitter systems functioning. Allotransplantation of the embryonic dofaminsynthesizing brain tissue contributes to the restoration of movement activeity and its specific neurotransmitter ensuring. 

Innovative Component of Modern Higher Education in the Republic of Kazakhstan  [PDF]
Nazym Stamgaliyeva, Yelena Feoktistova
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.210006
Abstract: The paper considers modern conditions of education development in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Modern higher education in Kazakhstan is based mainly on the results of innovations as a science of innovations. The bases of the work of higher education institutions in Republic of Kazakhstan lie in the following strategic acts: Program of Enforced Industrial and Innovative Development of Kazakhstan, State Program of Education Development in Kazakhstan for 2011-2020. High schools have to form the whole system of universal knowledge, habits and skills, also self-activities and personal responsibilities of students that are key competencies, determining modern quality of education. It is necessary to introduce structural, institutional, organizational and economic changes in the system of higher education and as a result make new content of education, and design it in accordance with requirements of time and with the tasks of developing country. That is why today the realization of competence approach needs the support on international experience, by the necessary adaptation to traditions and demands of Kazakhstan.
Time as a Category of Traditional Besermian Worldview
Yelena Popova
Folklore : Electronic Journal of Folklore , 2006,
Abstract: The traditional chronology of Besermians is a constantly developing and transforming system subject to various internal and external influences. As a part of a culture’s worldview, time determines the rhythm of nature, lore culture, economic activities, and cycles of human life. A day covers the period from sunrise to sunset, a night the period from sunset to sunrise. Each part of the day was given a name. Midnight and noon were considered dangerous and special times. Weekdays were seen as positive (easy) or negative (difficult). The positive or negative nature of the day may have influenced the outcome of the work undertaken. The yearly system was based on the change of seasons. The change of seasons had a significant influence on the entire economic life, which, in turn, determined the community life, including family and practical rituals. Until the adoption of mechanical clocks, time has been calculated with various means at people’s disposal. Observing the movement of the sun and the moon has been important. The Besermians havemerged several traditional feast days, the tradition of commemorating the dead and other festivities with the Orthodox church calendar.
Traditional Childcare and Treatment of Children's Diseases among the Besermian
Yelena Popova
Folklore : Electronic Journal of Folklore , 2005,
Abstract: The article is based on fieldwork conducted in 1986-2000 among the Besermian (a small ethnic group in North-East Udmurtia, the districts of Iukamen, Iar, Balezino and Glazov, and the Cheptsa watershed). The article overviews the beliefs, customs and healing practices applying to labour, care of the mother and the newborn. Also, Besermian midwives and verbal healers and their practices are reviewed. The Besermian retained traditional medicine longer than the neighbouring groups, especially as regards child healing methods. Diseases and healing practices of complex mythological background are slowly forgotten, knowledge and practices relayed within a family have survived better. Children’s diseases and prophylactics are treated similarly to that of adults. Receiving health from an adult and the ritual of “new” birth played an important role.

A simple, practical and complete O-time Algorithm for RNA folding using the Four-Russians Speedup
Yelena Frid, Dan Gusfield
Algorithms for Molecular Biology , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1748-7188-5-13
Abstract: In this paper, we give a simple, complete, and practical Four-Russians algorithm for the basic RNA-folding problem, achieving a worst-case time-bound of O(n3/log(n)).We show that this time-bound can also be obtained for richer nucleotide matching scoring-schemes, and that the method achieves consistent speed-ups in practice. The contribution is both theoretical and practical, since the basic RNA-folding problem is often solved multiple times in the inner-loop of more complex algorithms, and for long RNA molecules in the study of RNA virus genomes.The problem of computationally predicting the secondary structure (or folding) of RNA molecules was first introduced more than thirty years ago [1-4], and yet continues to be an area of active research and development, particularly due to the recent discovery of a wide variety of new types of RNA molecules and their biological importance. Additional interest in the problem comes from synthetic biology where modified RNA molecules are designed, and from the study of the complete genomes of RNA viruses (which can be up to 11, 000 basepairs in length).The basic RNA-folding problem of finding a maximum cardinality, non-crossing, matching of complementary nucleotides in an RNA sequence of length n, is at the heart of almost all methods to computationally predict RNA secondary structure, including more complex methods that incorporate more realistic folding models, such as allowing some crossovers (pseudoknots). Correspondingly, the basic O(n3)-time dynamic-programming solution to the RNA-folding problem remains a central tool in methods to predict RNA structure, and has been widely exposed in books and surveys on RNA folding, computational biology, and computer algorithms. Since the time of the introduction of the O(n3) dynamic-programming solution to the basic RNA-folding problem, there have been several practical heuristic speedups [5,6]; and a complex, worst-case speedup of O(n3(loglogn)/(logn)1/2) time [7] whose practicality

Managing Company Productiveness on the Basis of Resource Saving Управление производительностью предприятия на основе ресурсосбережения
Krivoruchkina Yelena V.
Business Inform , 2013,
Abstract: The article emphasises priority of growth of productivity of natural resources since they are main limiting factors of production systems. It states that ensuring positive trajectory of development of companies could be achieved by means of not formal reduction of the used natural resources but their complex use. It systemises conceptual approaches to management of resource saving. It presents the logic of formation of results of increase of productivity of natural resources. It identifies main principles of their formation and use. It proves that introduction of the resource saving type of production allows obtaining synergy of ecologic and economic results. It justifies the determining role of strategic resources in development and realisation of measures on effective use of resources of a company in general and natural ones in particular. It offers to assess effectiveness of activity of economic subjects through the prism of internal productivity, which is interpreted as company’s capacity to generate and accumulate intellectual, information and organisational products for a certain period of time, which acquire the status of strategic resources and create prerequisites for realisation of priority directions of company development in the context of realisation of resource saving type of production. В статье акцентировано внимание на приоритетности роста производительности природных ресурсов, поскольку они являются главным ограничивающим фактором производственных систем. Указано, что обеспечение положительной траектории развития предприятий может быть достигнуто за счет не формального уменьшения применяемых природных ресурсов, а их комплексного использования. Систематизированы концептуальные подходы к управлению ресурсосбережением. Представлена логика формирования результатов увеличения производительности природных ресурсов. Определены основные принципы их формирования и использования. Доказано, что внедрение ресурсосберегающего типа производства позволяет получит
