De hand van Romme. C.P.M. Romme als staatkundig hoofdredacteur van De Volkskrant (1945-1952)
M. Broersma
BMGN : Low Countries Historical Review , 2000,
Abstract: Romme's hand: The politician C.P.M. Romme as editor-in-chief of the 'De Volkskrant' (1945-1952) Between 1945 and 1953, C.P.M. Romme held two posts simultaneously; he was both the political leader of the Katholieke Volkspartij (KVP) and editor-in-chief of the newspaper 'De Volkskrant'. Many assumptions have been made about this joint position, mostly by theorists and researchers into the subject of 'pillarization'. However, Romme's actual influence on the content of the 'Volkskrant' has not yet been properly researched. This article explores the role that Romme the politician played during his editorship of the 'Volkskrant'. It aims to show how Romme used the newspaper to attain his political goals; especially with regard to maintaining Catholic political unity and social solidarity. He wrote leading articles to influence public opinion, acted in a censorial capacity and invited journalists and political supporters to contribute articles that supported his own views. In 1952, the owner of the newspaper, the 'Katholieke Arbeidersbeweging' (The Trade Union for Catholics), forced Romme to resign. Ironically, it was a conflict about maintaining Catholic political unity - Romme's main political goal – that ultimately led to his resignation.
The Role of the Press in the Unilateral Disengagement Plan of Israel from Gaza Strip  [PDF]

Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2013.31002

The Disengagement Plan is the name assigned to the plan enacted in the summer of 2005 to evict all Israelis and military bases from Gaza Strip and four isolated settlements in northern Samaria and to withdraw unilaterally. The plan was controversial, yet it won the support of the majority of the cabinet and the Knesset members, as well as the support in Israel and the world. The eviction process of the residents was accompanied by vast activities of the army and police forces in fear of violent acts by the evacuees, and by extensive media coverage. It was one of the longest and most covered events in the history of Israel and intensified the conflict between security needs and free press. In democracies such as Israel, which faces security needs on permanent basis, the media are expected to carry social responsibility duties of not publishing information that is sensitive to national security. It is commonly agreed that although Israel is a democratic state where freedom of speech and freedom of the press are cornerstones of its existence, in all that relates to security things should be different, and security issues are above the need of the media to publish and the need of the public to know. The position of the press in the disengagement and the way they dealt with this dilemma are analyzed in this study based on covering reports in the main Israeli daily newspaper—Yediot Achronot—during the period from January 1, 2005 through August 24, 2005, when the evacuation of all Israelis from Gaza Strip was completed.

Imprensa feminista brasileira pós-1974
Cardoso, Elizabeth;
Revista Estudos Feministas , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-026X2004000300004
Abstract: this work discusses the brazilian feminist press. based on field research, it shows that the feminist press after-1974 can be divided in two different moments: first and second generations. the first is mainly worried with social class questions and social differences, and the second is mainly focused on genre questions. two historical events mark the division between the first and the second generation of feminist periodicals: the ii and the iii s?o paulo state woman congress, that happened, respectively, in 1980 and 1981.
The effect of a wearable visual cue on patient satisfaction survey scores in the acute inpatient rehabilitation setting  [PDF]

Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.56A2002

With a portion of healthcare reimbursement now dependent on the patient’s report of the hospital experience, healthcare systems are looking for ways to improve patient satisfaction scores. In this study, one inpatient physiatrist at an acute inpatient rehabilitation facility wore a button on the right lapel of his white coat at all times which read, “Ask ME about your TREATMENT and PROGRESS!!!” in order to determine if a wearable visual cue prompting the patient to discuss his or her treatment and progress alters Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey (PGPSS) scores. Mean score on the physician-specific PGPSS question “How well the rehabilitation doctor kept you informed about your treatment and progress” was calculated retrospectively for five months before and after the physiatrist donned the button. Comparisons were made to two other inpatient physiatrists. For the button-wearing physiatrist, mean score for the physician-specific patient satisfaction survey question for the five months before donning the button was 88.1 ± 11.5; and, for the five months after donning the button, the mean score was 95.8 ± 5.9. These scores were marginally statistically different (p = 0.07). Conversely, the difference in mean scores over the same time periods for two other inpatient physiatrists who did not wear the button did not approach statistical significance. In conclusion, a wearable visual cue improved the PGPSS score specific to the question the visual cue addressed.

Investigated Cold Press Oil Extraction from Non-Edible Oilseeds for Future Bio-Jet Fuels Production  [PDF]
Xianhui Zhao, Lin Wei, James Julson, Yinbin Huang
Journal of Sustainable Bioenergy Systems (JSBS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jsbs.2014.44019
Abstract: Bio-jet fuel produced from non-edible oilseeds can be an alternative to fossil fuels with the benefits of increasing national energy security, reducing environmental impact, and fostering rural economic growth. Efficient oil extraction from oilseeds is critical for economic production of bio-jet fuels. Oil extractions from camelina (sativa) and canola (Brassica napus) seeds were conducted using a cold press method. The effect of the frequency controlling the screw rotation speed on the oil recovery and quality was discussed. Characterization of the produced raw vegetable oils, such as heating value, elemental content and main chemical compositions, was carried out. The results showed that the oil recovery increased when the frequency decreased. The highest oil recoveries for camelina and canola seeds were 88.2% and 84.1% respectively, both at 15 Hz. The cold press frequency and processing temperature (97.2°C - 106.0°C) had a minor influence on the qualities and recovery of both camelina and canola oils. In addition, camelina and canola oils produced at 15 Hz underwent catalytic cracking to examine potential hydrocarbon fuels production. It was observed that some of oil physicochemical properties were improved after catalytic cracking. Although more study is needed for further improvement of oil recovery and qualities, cold press could be an efficient method for oil extraction from non-edible oilseeds. Additionally, the preliminary results of upgrading the oils produced show very promising for future bio-jet fuels production.
Critical Analysis of Press Freedom in Nepal after the Peace Agreement 2006  [PDF]
Binod Kumar Paudel
Advances in Journalism and Communication (AJC) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ajc.2017.54013
Abstract: A decade long civil war ended with a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2006. To address the political developments, the Interim Constitution was promulgated in 2007. Though the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2007 guarantees press freedom, every year various incidents of press freedom violation are recorded by various national and international organizations. This article evaluates the situation of press freedom in Nepal since the signing of CPA 2006 by analyzing all the incidents of press freedom violation from 2007 to 2014 as recorded by International Federation of Journalists (IFJ). The analysis of those events shows lack of sufficient evidence and information to justify them as the press freedom violation. No matter where and how the journalist or media owner is killed, threatened or harmed physically, it is termed as press freedom violation. The situation of Press freedom after peace agreement in 2006 is not that critical as projected in various reports and there is no government censorship in media. However, if the mechanism by which press freedom violation cases are recorded could be reviewed and more details are included, those reports will be much reliable. This tendency of reflecting critical situation of press freedom by projecting every incident without an adequate investigation might deviate from other issues related to journalist’s profession and further it might not motivate journalist and media to adhere to the code of ethics and become responsible to their profession. Though, the issue of professional safety of journalists could not be ignored, not all the incidents related to journalist are the cases of press freedom violation.

Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2009000100004
Abstract: nowadays, new settings for communication are being built, having, at one side, great corporations of television, radio, press and on line media, and, at the other side, the role of the independent/alternative press, understood as not bound to a private, public or state enterprise, or any economic group. it sets up, gradually the constitution of the opposition between the traditional media and the independent/alternative press, having as material support the new technologies of information. how can the new technology of information associated with new settings of press freedom and the phenomenon of public opinion contradiction in the internet era accomplish the mediation of the opinion in a globalized society? or still, starting from the assumption of press freedom, how to ensure that society will solve the contradiction of the public opinion? the phenomenon of public opinion is conflicting because it has in itself, at the same time, the universality of constitutional principles of law and ethics, and the peculiarity of the citizens' rights and concerns. this contradiction finds its solution through mediation of press freedom within a frame of democratic legality. this is the power of the contradiction: to make effective the mediation of the dialectic tension between the opposite poles of the universal and the singular in the press freedom, ensuring the right of every citizen to express publicly his opinion. this is hegel's theory of public opinion: the press freedom and the congress, while political space, are privileged spheres of mediation of the contradictory phenomenon the public opinion.
