De qué hablamos cuando hablamos de literatura del exilio republicano de 1939?
Caudet, Francisco
Arbor : Ciencia, Pensamiento y Cultura , 2009, DOI: 10.3989/arbor.2009.739n1068
Abstract: What are we referring to when we talk about the republican literary exile in 1939? It is possible to segregate this literature from that revolution and from the people that fought for this to become a reality and that suffered so much, the hardship, the death and the exile? The exile is a sub-culture that can be difficultly integrated in the culture of the acceptance country. During Franco’s dictatorship it is necessary to consider three different literatures: the literature which was close to the political regime, the one that showed some “cracks” in the regime –we are referring to existentialism and alarmism in the 1940’s decade, a kind of literature which started it own breaking-off the regime by the 1950’s decade– and finally the literature in the exile. It is necessary to ask if it is correct to write the history of the Spanish literature in the post-war period from an exclusive point of view and to take into consideration a questionable territoriality. As soon as possible it is essential accepting and admitting that the history of the Spanish literature if badly written and badly told. De qué hablamos cuando hablamos del exilio literario republicano de 1939? Se puede segregar esa literatura de esa revolución y del pueblo que por hacerla realidad luchó y sufrió toda suerte de penalidades, la muerte y el exilio? El exilio es una subcultura que difícilmente se integra en la cultura del país de acogida. En los tiempos de la dictadura franquista cabe partir de la existencia de tres literaturas: la afín al sistema, la que entrevé grietas en el sistema, existencialismo y tremendismo de los a os 40, y que a partir de 1950 empezó la ruptura con el régimen; y la literatura del exilio. Habría que plantearse si es válido escribir la historia de la literatura espa ola de posguerra desde el exclusivismo de una equívoca territorialidad. Urge reconocer y aceptar que la historia de la literatura espa ola a partir de 1939 está mal historiada, mal narrada.
A Comparison of Relationship Behaviors  [PDF]
Brian Eberly, Robert Pasnak, Keith Renshaw, Linda Chrosniak
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.411122

Pro-relationship behaviors—commitment, accommodation, sacrifice, and forgiveness—differ across relationships with parents, friends, and romantic partners. In order to test the extent to which the type of relationship plays a role in how willing a person is to accommodate, forgive, or sacrifice, participants were administered a series of questionnaires. The associations of these pro-relationship behaviors with commitment were compared across relationships. Although the tendency to accommodate, sacrifice, and forgive in one relationship was significantly correlated with the tendency to behave similarly in other relationships, there were significant differences from one relationship to another. For example, participants were significantly less likely to sacrifice for a friend than for a parent or a romantic partner. Conversely, participants were found to be significantly less accommodating for a parent than they were for a friend or for a romantic partner. Also, participants were significantly more likely to forgive friends than they were to forgive a romantic partner. All relationship behaviors were significantly correlated with commitment across all three relationship types, but the strength of these correlations was not consistent. This inconsistency is probably due to the differences in expectations that people have for different relationships. The friendships of college students are usually temporary, as friends graduate and move on, whereas relationships with parents last until death. Although there were inconsistencies, there were many significant correlations that showed that behavior in one relationship did predict behavior in other relationships. Just as behavior towards one’s parents was related to behavior towards one’s friends, it was also predictive of behavior towards romantic partners. Whether this applies to adolescents from other cultures, and whether it applies to non-university students, remains to be determined.

Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.58075

This paper aims to study the factors of undergraduate students’ WeChat using, and adopts the structure of close-ended and the Likert-scale five-point measure questionnaire. We choose 200 undergraduate students as the respondents, randomly from different majors and grades. The result indicates: 1) almost all of the respondents use WeChat every day, and 18.8% of them use WeChat more than 2 hours per day. 2) The influence of friends is a major factor in using WeChat among undergraduate students. The item “Most of my friends use WeChat and encourage me to use” and “WeChat helps me to keep in touch with friends” recorded the highest and second highest mean score (4.03; 3.97). 3) WeChat is a good way to release stress and relaxation for undergraduate students. It brings them more laughter and joy. 4) Family has no significant influence on WeChat using, and only 10% of the respondents agree with the item “I often chat with strangers in WeChat”.

The role of drinking in new and existing friendships across high school settings  [PDF]
Jacob E. Cheadle, Deadric Williams
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.56A3004
Abstract: We use 9 Add Health high schools with longitudinal network data to assess whether adolescent drinkers choose friends who drink, prefer friends whose friends drink, if selection differs between new and existing friendships, and between schools. Utilizing dynamic social network models that control for friend influences on individual alcohol use, the results show that drinkers do not strongly prefer friends who drink. Instead, they favor close friends whose friends’ drink, suggesting that alcohol matters for selection on the social groups and environments that friends connect each other to. The role of alcohol use differs by whether friendships are new or existing, however, with bridging connections being less stable. Moreover, selection processes, and the implications of alcohol use for friendship, vary in important ways between schools.

Evolution of Science and Technology , 2009, DOI: 10.3846/est.2009.19
Abstract: In 1907–1939, the Society of Friends of Science (Towarzystwo Przyjació Nauk w Wilnie) in Vilnius possessed two residences. In 1907–1913, the society was located in a house donated by count Józef Prze dziecki in Naujininkai suburb (Nowy wiat) while in 1913–1939, it moved to his own house on Tilto (Mostowa, further J. Lelewela, T. Narbuto, K. Po elos, Go tauto) street. The house was designed by Henryk Wojnicki and Jan Trojan, started in 1910–1913 and finished in 1928–1929. The building was built in the neoclassicism style and looked much the same as a country seat of a nobleman. There were a rich library of scientific literature and a museum in the house. These were the places of delivering lectures, arranging meetings for Society members and having celebrations and were attended not only by the members of the Society but also by students, teachers and all inhabitants of Vilnius interested in science and culture. Therefore, the residence of the Society was an important place of culture and contributed to educating the inhabitants of Vilnius city. During World War II, after the incorporation of Vilnius into the Republic of Lithuania, the Society and other Polish organizations were proclaimed as non existing de jure and their property was transferred to different Lithuanian institutions.

Suicide and Freedom from Suffering in Schopenhauer’s “Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung”  [PDF]
Christopher Roland Trogan
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2013.31002

Schopenhauer’s stance on suicide focuses on the possibility of achieving freedom from suffering through the denial of the individual will-to-life. Ultimately, Schopenhauer argues that suicide fails to achieve this freedom, primarily because it is an act of will that confirms, rather than denies, the will-to-life. Suicide, he argues, is a kind of contradiction in that it involves the individual will’s willfully seeking to exterminate itself as a way of escaping the wretchedness of willing. While Schopenhauer explicitly states that one possesses the individual right to commit suicide in order to attempt to obtain freedom from suffering, and even admits that he can understand why one would attempt to do so, he denies that there is any possibility that this freedom may be actualized. To take one’s life indicates a lack of awareness (or an unwillingness to become aware) of the futility of the individual will and the experience of the wholeness and totality of will-in-itself. One has the freedom to destroy oneself, but one’s freedom to free oneself from suffering is an illusion. If one concurs with Schopenhauer that suicide should be understood as a futile escape from the freedom of suffering, one cannot deny the brilliant insights of his argument. His is, one the one hand, a brilliant articulation of the function of suicide—placing the act squarely within what one would intuit as its primary purpose (freedom from suffering). On the other hand, given Schopenhauer’s philosophical framework, it negates that possibility and precludes consideration of any others.

Regulating the Internet: China’s Law and Practice  [PDF]
Haiping Zheng
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2013.41005

Though internet was not commercially available in China until 1995, it has been growing tremendously over the years. At the same time, the Chinese government has never ceased regulating or even censoring internet. This paper provides an overview of the development of internet in China, and the major regulatory schemes that have a direct impact on internet speech. Further, it describes some of the specific measures the Chinese government uses to control the internet: filtering and blocking, imposing liabilities on private parties, access control, internet “police”, and “guiding” public opinion. Finally, it concludes that internet censorship does more harm than good.
