Aksaray University Journal of Science and Engineering , 2017, DOI: -
Abstract: In this study, the settlement behavior of Aksifat concrete faced rock-filled dam was analyzed, during both period of construction and its water retention. In order to determine total displacement and stress distribution, two-dimensional strain analyses were performed using PLAXIS program based on the finite elements method. The material parameters of the dam were obtained from geotechnical reports, literature studies and the well logging data carried out within the scope of the project. The linear elastic material model was preferred for the bedrock in dam modelling, while the Mohr-Coulomb (MC) model was used for the rock fill, rock foundation and filter sand-gravel. Considering the seismotectonic features of the dam site, the Mw 5.7 Upland California earthquake with a maximum acceleration value of 0.24 g was utilized in the dynamic analysis. In the static analysis, the maximum settlement value was observed in the middle of the dam body fill and in the crest. The maximum value of settlement was computed at the top of the dam body. According to slope stability analysis; the static slope safety factor is greater than 2.0 which indicates that the slope stability is in balance. In the dynamic case, the value of the safety factor is reduced to the value of 1.3. This result indicates that the slope is in equilibrium whereas the slope stability tends to decline if the earthquake acceleration value increases. In terms of 2D deformations and the state of slope stability under seismic forces; the Mw 5.7 earthquake with a maximum acceleration value of 2.4 g will not produce any risk based on the finite element model of the dam used in this study.

Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2013.55015
Abstract: Due to the proliferation of mobile technology and devices like smartphones and tablet PCs into our daily lives, m-learning attracts also more attention in professional training in enterprises. Derived from these statements, this research paper is focused on the following question: what are acceptance factors for m-learning (mobile learning) in the organizational setting? The paper analyzes a real experience in m-learning for training the banking personnel in an international banking institution in Turkey. For this purpose, a mobile virtual learning environment called as mFOR@ was developed and implemented, which was designed to support the training and development process for employees using Pocket PCs. The participants of the training activity (13 professionals) evaluated the m-learning experience via a semi-structured interview; all the content and interactions within mFOR@ were analyzed via content analysis. As a basis for a successful implementation in professional training in enterprises, the acceptance by decision makers and the learners is critical. That is the reason why I present a qualitative analysis of acceptance and the perceived value of m-learning in a corporate setting.

Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2013.34009

Video training platforms are now being implemented on a large scale in organizations. In this paper, I look at a video training platform including open educational resources available for many employees with varying patterns and motivations for use. This has provided me with a research challenge to find methods that help other practitioners in the field understand and explain such initiatives. I describe ways to model the research and identify where pressures and contradictions can be found, drawing on a reflective view of my own practice in performing the research. Open educational resources are defined as technology-enabled educational resources that are openly available for consultation, use and adaptation by users for non-commercial purposes [1]. The bank subject to this case study has been the first organisation in Turkey that provided open educational resources for all its employees. The video platform (called “For @ Tube”) provides users with over 100 video lectures drawn from reputable universities around the world including Yale and Harvard. Other learning tools such as discussion forums, blogs and traditional e-learning courses have been made available to the users on the e-learning platform called “For @” since 2006. In this paper, I aim to introduce the new video training platform (“For @ Tube”) and outline some of the main research issues surrounding such an

Background: Chronic paronychia is a chronic inflammatory reaction of the proximal and lateral nail folds of multifactorial in etiology like irritant, bacterial and monilial causes. But housewife work is a major cause of chronic paronychia. Objective: To assess the efficacy and prophylactic effects of Vaseline by occlusion of nail folds in comparison with nystatin ointment and fucidic acid in treatment of housewife chronic paronychia. Patients and Methods: This double, blinded, comparative therapeutic, clinical trial is conducted at the Department of Dermatology-Baghdad Teaching Hospital from May 2010 to May 2011. Eighty female housewife patients with chronic paronychia were included in this trial. They were divided into three groups according to the following therapeutic model: Group A treated by Vaseline consisted of 40 patients; Group B and Group C treated by nystatin ointment, fucidic acid ointment respectively and each group consisted of 20 patients. All demographic points related to the disease were recorded from all patients. Invented score system was applied to assess the severity of disease and the response to therapy. Patients had used therapy twice daily on the proximal and lateral nail folds. Treatment duration was 12 weeks. Results: Group A (Vaseline): The recovery rate after 12 weeks of treatment was 26 (65%) patients, while there was no recovery in 14 (35%) patients. Group B (Nystatin ointment): The recovery rate after 12 weeks was 13 (65%) cases

Quantum Hamilton-Jacobi Approach to Two Dimensional Singular Oscillator
Ozlem Yesiltas,Bengu Demircioglu
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: We have obtained the solutions of two dimensional singular oscillator which is known as the quantum Calogero-Sutherland model both in cartesian and parabolic coordinates within the framework of quantum Hamilton Jacobi formalism. Solvability conditions and eigenfunctions are obtained by using the singularity structures of quantum momentum functions under some conditions. New potentials are generated by using the first two states of singular oscillator for parabolic coordinates.

Senay Cetinkaya, Ayse Gurol
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2018.82019
Abstract: Toddler period is the period that nutritional habits are learnt. This research is a semi-analytical field research that was performed in doctors’ offices 1, 6 and 7 in the provincial center of Konya with the purpose of determining the socio-demographic characteristics of obese pre-school children and their families who volunteered to participate in the research. The cosmos of the research consists of 22 village clinics in Konya provincial center. Obese Cosmos consists of obese children between 1 - 3 years of age and their families who applied to outpatient clinics of the Doctors’ Offices numbered 1, 6 and 7, which were selected with cluster sampling method, for vaccination and who accepted to participate in the research. Data were collected between 01 January 2005 and 31 March 2005 by using a questionnaire and a form of anthropometric measures to enter the measures of height, weight, thickness of skin folds, and waist and hip size. The difference between the increase of weight of the mother during pregnancy and the non-categorized RW outputs of the child in birth was found to be statistically significant (p < 0.05). Variation analysis was performed in order to check whether or not there was a difference between the period of breastfeeding and Standart Deviation Score (SDS) and Relative Weight (RW) values and it was found to be significant (p < 0.05). No statically significant relationship was found between the time child spends watching TV daily and SDS and RW values of the child (p > 0.05). Although there was found no statically significant relationship between the daily play hours of the child and SDS (p > 0.05), there was a significant relationship between RW (p < 0.05). It is important that the parents should spend more time playing with their children and increasing the play time. Informing booklets have been prepared and given to parents with the purpose of training.

Non-commutative geometry and irreversibility
Ayse Erzan,Ayse Gorbon
Physics , 1997, DOI: 10.1007/s100510050159
Abstract: A kinetics built upon $q$-calculus, the calculus of discrete dilatations, is shown to describe diffusion on a hierarchical lattice. The only observable on this ultrametric space is the "quasi-position" whose eigenvalues are the levels of the hierarchy, corresponding to the volume ofphase space available to the system at any given time. Motion along the lattice of quasi-positions is irreversible.
Pre-Service Primary Teachers’ Attitudes towards Mathematics in an Australian University  [PDF]
Dilshara Hill, Ayse Aysin Bilgin
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.94042
Abstract: Pre-service primary teachers are important people to shape future generations, as they will be the first face of mathematics a young child meets when he/she starts school. Since numerical literacy is becoming as important as literacy itself due to ease of data collection and ease of analysis of the data, it is important to educate the future generation and their teachers to be as effective as possible in their abilities to learn/teach mathematics. The research on pre-service teachers’ mathematical anxiety and their attitudes towards mathematics show that the pre-service teacher typically has high levels of maths anxiety and that their attitude to mathematics makes a big difference to their learning during their studies at the university and then teaching mathematics to their young students. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between previous (i.e. high school) mathematics study and attitudes toward mathematics. Our study showed that a high percentage of participants who studied mathematics in their final year at high school had a somewhat positive attitude toward mathematics.
