Abstract: Transportation and mobility lies between the most important critical issues in sustainability, beside others as energy and climate, urban systems, waste management or the public policy. Reaching a sustainable transport system is not just a matter of developing and adopting a number of technological innovations. A broader structural and societal transition is needed in technology, economy, culture, behavioural patterns and institutions. Cluj-Napoca is the largest city in Transylvania, a city that faced a tremendous economic growth after 1990, accompanied by a substantial increase in population in its surrounding area and leading to a rapid and substantial increase in demand for municipal services as well as supporting infrastructure. The rapid rate of motorization experienced in Cluj-Napoca region and its associated problems of congestion and environmental pollution made it an excellent case study in policy formulation and planning for sustainable transportation. The central idea of this article is that policies promoting transportation mobility, economic development and environmental sustainability can be pursued in harmony with one another, rather than as conflicting goals. In particular, it explores how issues of transportation and environmental sustainability could interact in the context of the studied metropolitan area, in which the rate of growth in population and economic development seem to have outpaced the needed transportation infrastructure. The article aims in identifying, given the reality of this supply constraint, the most appropriate ways to manage transportation demand to reduce the immediate pressure on transportation supply and to accommodate the time needed to replenish or expand the existing supply.
Life Insurance - Their Characteristics Importance and Actuality On The Romanian Market
Oana Claudia Ionescu
Journal of Knowledge Management, Economics and Information Technology , 2012,
Abstract: For the twenty-first century life, there cannot be a real, long-term and sustained progress, without insurance. Let’s only consider the avalanche of natural disasters and acts of terrorism in recent years that have affected many parts of the world, brought suffering to millions of people and caused huge economic losses. The common knowledge that a country’s economic strength lays in bankingand insurance needs no arguments. It is not accidental that the most stable economies, where even population’s prosperity is remarkable, are found in countries where insurance is well represented in economic life. In a modern economy, insurances play an important role due to its contribution to financial stability, by promoting effective control of various risk categories and mobilizing people’s savings. This paper plans to identify the main characteristics, trends and developments of life insurance products and their market, as well as the interactions between the insurance sector, banks and financial markets and to highlight some of the determinants of insurance demand. Also, another topic addressed is the current economic context, and the effects of inflation and economic recession on this sector. Finally, this paper contains a short observation of the evolution of this particular market, striving to make a “prediction” of the immediate prospects of this activity.

Why Should Children Adapt, and When?

Abstract: This paper is a contribution to the debate on children s perspective taking skills, addressing the question which kinds of adaptation are related to different functions of children s utterances in their everyday life. A longitudinal home-based study of the contents of a child s speech focuses on the child s growing ability to present new information to his interaction partner. The functions of the child s talk are analysed using Halliday s (1975, 1994) framework. The results show that the earliest functions of the child s talk are predominantly representational, expressing reflections on (shared) experience that do not necessitate perspective taking. Later on, interpersonal functions emerge, involving emotional sharing with the interlocutor, but not necessarily any understanding of the listener s mind. Finally, starting with explanations and elaborations of situations observable by both interlocutors, the child becomes increasingly able to convey information which is new to the listener. Talk which serves the predominant function of conveying information is most effective when the child takes into account the listener s informational status. In contrast, the interlocutors knowledge and beliefs are irrelevant for the other speech functions developed earlier. Thus, at an earlier age children do not need to take into account others conceptual perspectives in talking, which may be one reason why they do not exhibit sophisticated perspective taking skills, a fact well-established in the literature. The option of dealing with, and affecting, their interaction partners informational status simply does not exist before children have learned how to use language as a substitution for experience, i.e., to present experiential meaning to others who have no access to the experience itself.
Investigation of silica-PVA xerogel microstructure evolution during thermal treatment by sans experiment

Acta Periodica Technologica , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/apt0435095i
Abstract: The purpose of the study was to investigate the appearance of certain microstructures developing in the SiO2/PVA nanocomposite xerogels at different temperatures by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). The samples were prepared by the alcoxide route of the sol-gel method. The SANS measurements were performed over a q (scattering vector) range from 0.05 to 3.7 nm-1, providing structural information at length scales (2π/q) between approximately 1 and 100 nm. The measured small-angle scattering intensities of silica and silica/PVA samples aged at 60°C and heat-treated at different temperatures, are presented in log-log plots. It is shown that both the molecular mass of organic and the temperature of thermal treatment have strong influence on transition tendency from mass fractal toward surface fractal structures.

Den vetenskapliga republiken i nytt perspektiv

Utbildning & Demokrati : Tidsskrift f?r Didaktik och Utbildningspolitik , 2004,
Abstract: The staggering advances in modern bio-sciences have social implications: the traditional boundaries between elite science and the people may shift quickly, as people themselves become engaged as “scientific citizens and participants”. By the same token, the boundaries between observer and participant, between experts and laymen may shift as well. Traditional breaches can be narrowed, while new breaches between the actors concerned may evolve. It is in this light brought by modern techno-science that the relationship between science and democracy needs to be scrutinized anew: what is happening to democracy in the wake of the advanced knowledge society?
La lettre volée : l’illustration ornementale des dictionnaires fran ais The Purloined Letter : the Ornamental Illustration of French Dictionaries

Recherche et Pratiques Pédagogiques en Langues de Spécialité : Cahiers de l'APLIUT , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/apliut.909
Abstract: Cet article aborde un domaine jusqu’à récemment inexploré des dictionnaires fran ais : les lettres ornées selon le principe de l’abécédaire. Après une introduction aux mots-outils nécessaires pour l’étude de ce domaine intersémiotique — notamment iconophore : image dont le premier trait pertinent est constitué par la lettre initiale du nom de son référent — l’auteur propose un panorama des étapes marquantes de son développement : origines dans l’enluminure médiévale, prémisses lexicographiques au XVIIIe siècle, montée en régime dans les années 1830, période glorieuse dans la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, ère Larousse dans la première moitié du XXe siècle, apparente disparition avant le début du XXIe. Sont exposés certains des traits caractéristiques de ce type d’ornementation ainsi que des considérations sur la fa on de les étudier. En conclusion est abordée la notion d'assiette culturelle, les connaissances requises chez l’observateur non seulement pour déchiffrer l’iconophore, mais pour que celui-ci retentisse en lui, réveille en lui toutes les connotations qui y sont rattachées. Nous ne sommes pas loin des mythologies de Roland Barthes. This article deals with an area of French metalexicography that has gone unstudied until recent years : ornamental initial letters based on the ABC principle. After an introduction to the definitions required in order to approach this intersemiotic subject matter — in particular iconophor: an image whose first distinctive feature consists of the letter which begins the name of its referent — the author presentsa panorama of the main stages of its development: origins in medieval illuminations, early lexicographical stages in the XVIIth century, rise to popularity in the 1830s, grandeur in the second half of the XIXth century, “Larousse” period in the first half of the XXth century, apparent disappearance before that century was out. The author presents the main characteristics of these ornaments, and well as considerations on various aspects of their study. The paper ends on a discussion of the cultural base (assiette culturelle) that is presupposed on the part of the observer of iconophors, not only to decipher each one, but to allow it to awaken in him or her all the connotations that may derive from it. An analogy with Roland Barthes’ “mythologies” seems self-evident.

Abstract: To date there has been little research that describes the relation between the individual and their environment as the foundation for the coping process in advanced cancer patients. The aim of the study was to identify and describe, from a patient perspective, processes that are significant to coping with advanced cancer. We used the method Grounded Theory as described by Strauss and Corbin. Data were generated through qualitative interviews. A total of 18 interviews were conducted. The central theme was “The struggle to be a participant in one’s own life”. This theme involved three processes: prioritising, downplaying and self-preservation, each of which in different ways endeavours to either maintain or re-establish the feeling of being a participant. The awareness of the processes complement existing knowledge about coping in advanced cancer patients, by showing how patients make use of meaning-based coping efforts to increase their experience of being a participant in their own lives.
