The political economy of Turkey-EU customs union after the treaty of Lisbon: A Reappraisal
Arianna Catalano
Interdisciplinary Political Studies , 2011,
Abstract: This article analyses the European Union’s (EU) trade policy highlighting the gradual shift towards a more penetrating EU Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) policy and institutional changes brought about by the Treaty of Lisbon and their impact on trade policy’s functioning. Emphasizing Turkey’s changing trade patterns and stressing the growing salience of non-EU trade partners, the article opens up a debate on the rationale of current Customs Union. The analysis brings to the understanding of the on-going cases of trade deflection negatively affecting Turkish economy and the drawbacks arisen from the EU’s changing FTA policy. Finally, the political and technical aspects of Turkey’s accession process are discussed to shed further light on the current and future meaning behind today’s Customs Union.
To Safeguard and to Make the Most of the Rural Environment by Means of a “Sustainable Agro-Environmental Systems” Study
Maurizia Catalano
Italian Journal of Agronomy , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/ija.2010.295
Abstract: An upheaval of the economy in all parts of the world has recently taken place and has hit all the productive sectors including the agricultural one which is in a very critical state also in fertile areas and not only in poor and marginal ones where a gradual abandon of the land had already taken place years before. Since 1988, the European Union has paid particular attention to this problem, by trying to incentivate an intergrated rural development thinking of a prospective of intersectorial growth with the aim of achieving ways of sustainable agriculture which would lead to valid solutions both for ecology and for the economy. Today, however, even the agricultural productions thought to be rich, provide smaller and smaller incomes to the point that farmers are obliged to ask themselves at the end of the cultivation if it is worthwhile gathering the products or not. The abandon of the countryside could extend to fertile areas which would bring about a serious degeneration and environmental harm. A historian of our times Hobsbawm poses this very important question: “What will happen when extensive areas of the rural landscapes will no longer be needed, for an agriculture outdated and inefficient which it had created for long periods? It was the old agriculture which preserved the landscape. Without it what will happen?… replying that we are no longer defending nature, but a nature which is the outcome of an agricultural cultivation manmade”. It is fundamental in these times to study sustainable agro-environmental systems which can create positive economical moves in order to increase traditional incomes to include the classical agricultural ones. The right use of all environmental and anthropical resources organized in a system is the way to transform the poverty of a lot of marginal areas of Apulia, of other Mediterranean countries and in the world into richness because it is this togetherness of resources, activity and initiative in an economical and organized synergy which can, lacking industrial and commercial possibilities and a remunerative agriculture, give way to environmental, economical and social benefits with positive outcomes on the economy and the employment. In relation to the importance of the environmental issues the Department for the Science of Vegetable Productions of the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” which has carried out in time studies regarding the Territorial agronomy and the Ecology of the rural environment has, in 2008, set up a project called “T’ESSERE” written and scientifically co-ordinated by

Free and total sterols in olive oils. Effects of neutralization
Pasqualone, A.,Catalano, M.
Grasas y Aceites , 2000,
Abstract: In order to further investigate the variations of the ratio of free to total sterols in different categories of olive oil and to test the possibility to use this ratio as a parameter for olive oil quality evaluation, a direct GLC quali-quantitative determination of either free or total sterols was made, and their ratio calculated, over a set 13 samples of extra virgin oils and over a set of 28 current virgin and lampante oils. In order to study the effects of neutralization on free and total sterols, their amounts and ratio were also determined after the neutralization of the current virgin and lampante oils. The single components of free and total sterols were also analyzed, especially the most represented ones. The overall examination of the free x 100 / total sterolsa ratio values found over all the samples of 41 natural oils and 28 neutralized oils indicated that, when this ratio exceeds 70 %, it can exclude the presence of neutralized oils in extra virgin ones. Se ha realizado una determinación directa cuali-cuantitativa por CGL de los esteroles libres y totales, para investigar las variaciones de la relación entre ellos en diferentes categorías de aceite de oliva y estudiar la posibilidad del uso de esta relación como parámetro para la evaluación de la calidad del aceite. Dicha relación se calculó sobre un conjunto de 13 muestras de aceites de oliva virgen y 28 muestras de aceites vírgenes corrientes y lampantes. Para estudiar los efectos de la neutralización sobre los esteroles libres y totales, se determinaron sus contenidos y relación entre ellos tras la neutralización de los aceites vírgenes corrientes y lampantes. También se han analizado los componentes individuales de los esteroles libres y totales, especialmente los más representativos. El examen total de los valores de la relación esteroles libres x 100 / esteroles totales realizado sobre una población de 41 muestras de aceites naturales y 28 de aceites neutralizados indicó que, cuando esta relación supera el 70 %, puede excluirse la presencia de aceites neutralizados en aceites vírgenes extra.
Power consumption and quality features in the hammer crushing process for olive oil production
Bianchi, B.,Catalano, P.
Grasas y Aceites , 1996,
Abstract: In a previous research, a preliminary analysis on the thermal balance in different crushing systems for olive oil production was carried out. According to the previous results, in this paper the study has been extended to power consumption aspects related to the main quality features of the extracted olive oil, restricting the analysis only to the hammer crushing (Coratina cultivar), which represents the worst case. In particular, the effect of the olives delivery on the power consumption and quality of the extracted oil has been studied. The experimental trials, carried out on a laboratory plant during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 olive-oil seasons, show that, even though the diagram of power consumption has a parabolic increasing trend, the specific power decreases with the olives delivery. Anyway studying the olives hammer crushing process also from the qualitative point of view (polyphenols number, acidity, peroxide number and induction time), it is possible to define an optimal range of olives delivery values. This optimal range (140 kg/h-240 kg/h for the studied hammer crusher) represents the better working solution from both the point of view of the power consumption and the quality of the extracted oil. In particular, at the beginning of the olive oil season it is necessary to work near the greatest lower bound of the optimal range just defined. With the passing of the harvesting time, the olives delivery has to be increased, reaching values near the greatest higher bound at the end of the olive oil season. En una investigación previa, se ha llevado a cabo un análisis preliminar sobre el balance térmico en diferentes sistemas de trituración para la producción de aceite de oliva. De acuerdo con los resultados previos, en este trabajo el estudio se ha extendido a aspectos del consumo energético relacionados con las principales características de calidad del aceite de oliva extraído, limitando el análisis sólo a la trituración mediante molino de martillo (variedad Coratina), la cual representa el peor caso. En particular, se ha estudiado el efecto de la alimentación de aceitunas sobre el consumo energético y calidad del aceite extraído. Los ensayos experimentales, llevados a cabo en una planta de laboratorio durante los períodos de producción de aceite de oliva de 1993-94 y 1994-95, mostraron que, aunque el diagrama del consumo energético tuvo un incremento parabólico, la energía específica disminuyó con la alimentación de aceitunas. Con todo, estudiando el proceso de trituración de aceitunas mediante molino de martillo también desde el punto de vista c
College Algebra in Context: A Project Incorporating Social Issues
Michael T. Catalano
Numeracy , 2010,
Abstract: This paper discusses the development of an innovative college algebra text designed for use in a data-driven, activity-oriented college algebra course, incorporating realistic problem situations emphasizing social and economic issues, including hunger and poverty, energy, and the environment. The course incorporates quantitative literacy themes, is informed by existing college algebra texts within the college algebra reform movement, and implements a collaborative pedagogical approach intended to provide future K-12 teachers an alternative model for the teaching of mathematics. The paper contains a short history of the project development phase, supported by an NSF grant (DUE #0442979), as well as the perceived role of the project in the college algebra reform and quantitative literacy movements. We make a short case for redefining the content of a college algebra course and acknowledging that for many students, it has become a terminal mathematics course. A description of the contents of the text, its relation to more traditional college algebra content, and four example student activities are included (on the topics of homelessness, the effects of airline deregulation, real estate versus savings as investment instruments, and the 2008 election). A summary of evaluation and assessment data from five years of pilot-testing, done primarily in conjuction with our NSF grant evaluation plan, is provided.

Using ACRL Standards to Assess the Information Literacy of Graduate Students in an Education Program
Amy Jo Catalano
Evidence Based Library and Information Practice , 2010,
Abstract: Objective - This study investigates the information literacy of graduate education students, including those in doctoral cohorts. The Association for Research and College Libraries Information Literacy Standards were used a baseline for measurement. Methods - A survey was sent to all graduate students in the School of Education; it asked a combination of questions measuring students’ perceptions of their information literacy skills and testing their knowledge of information literacy. Results – A total of 172 surveys were returned. The results indicated that while there is a heavy reliance on internet sources, many students were able to determine which sources were reliable and which were not. After attending information instruction sessions, students were more familiar with library services and more inclined to use them. Conclusion - It was determined that a one credit course or multiple sessions of library instruction would better serve graduate students completing capstone projects.
