Exploring the Links between Employment Clusters and Economic Diversity in the British Urban System  [PDF]
Daniel O’Donoghue
Modern Economy (ME) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/me.2016.77079
Abstract: A growing body of literature, built up over the years, has explored the cluster concept. In parallel, another body of literature has accumulated regarding the diversity and specialisation of cities. There has been little explicit linkage between these two bodies of literature. This study sets out to explore the potential link between these two representations of spatial patterns so that a better understanding of the relationship between the two might be established. The UK Annual Business Inquiry 2007 provides the employment data drawn from various aggregated levels of the SIC 2003 for 70 TTWAs that represent the British Urban System. The paper investigates the extent of spatial concentration of individual sectors, and provides an example of how clusters might be identified spatially. Further analysis, using data drawn from the SIC 1, 2 and 3 digit levels indicates the relationship levels diversity/specialisation have with the clustering of activities, particularly when various sub-sectors are examined. Specific locations, or groups of cities are identified, which reinforce previous understandings of some of the key concepts. The results indicate further analysis of the role of localisation and urbanisation economies and their relationship with diversity/specialisation is required with an added emphasis on occupational, rather than just industrial diversity.
Happily Ever after: The Use of Stories to Promote Positive Interventions  [PDF]
Daniel J. Tomasulo, James O. Pawelski
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.312A176

People turn to myriad ways to achieve happiness, such as physical pleasures, relationships, or the achievement of goals. Success in these endeavors varies, however, and may not be sustainable. Recent advances in scientific research may be able to help, with a number of studies suggesting that people have the power to increase happiness through intentional activities. Narrative is one of the most pervasive and promising elements of positive interventions, and stories play a significant role both in psychological research and in application. A proposal is made that stories should be used more frequently as a vehicle to demonstrate and encourage the use of positive interventions, and a suggestion is made on how to collect and disseminate them.

On the Stability and Boundedness of Solutions of Certain Non-Autonomous Delay Differential Equation of Third Order  [PDF]
Akinwale L. Olutimo, Daniel O. Adams
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.76041
Abstract: In this paper, we study certain non-autonomous third order delay differential equations with continuous deviating argument and established sufficient conditions for the stability and boundedness of solutions of the equations. The conditions stated complement previously known results. Example is also given to illustrate the correctness and significance of the result obtained.
Effect of Low pH on Carbohydrate Production by a Marine Planktonic Diatom (Chaetoceros muelleri)
Daniel C. O. Thornton
International Journal of Ecology , 2009, DOI: 10.1155/2009/105901
Abstract: Rising carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in the atmosphere due to human activity are causing the surface ocean to become more acidic. Diatoms play a pivotal role in biogeochemical cycling and ecosystem function in the ocean. pH affected the quantum efficiency of photosystem II and carbohydrate metabolism in a planktonic diatom (Chaetoceros muelleri), representative of a widely distributed genus. In batch cultures grown at low pH, the proportion of total carbohydrate stored within the cells decreased and more dissolved carbohydrates were exuded from the cells into the surrounding medium. Changes in productivity and the way in which diatoms allocate carbon into carbohydrates may affect ecosystem function and the efficiency of the biological carbon pump in a low pH ocean.

Ditadura, anistia e reconcilia??o
Reis, Daniel Aar?o;
Estudos Históricos (Rio de Janeiro) , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-21862010000100008
Abstract: after exposing a reflection of the relationship between memory and history, the article discusses some questions about the law of amnesty (adopted in brazil in august 1979), and the silence that it brought: on torture and on the torturers, on the support of society and on the dictatorship of the revolutionary projects of political left. the text argues in favor of the need to revise the law because a debate about the brazilian society could be helpful to understand the period of the dictatorship, the torture as public policy, to judge the torturers and, finally, to open up the files of armed forces' secret services, which would require, however, a process of change in the political culture of these institutions.
Reflexiones sobre la educación visual
Cuadernos del Centro de Estudios en Dise?±o y Comunicaci?3n. Ensayos , 2012,
Abstract: the text approaches the thematic of visual alphabetization applied to the learning of photography. the article considers the relevance of the term and the confusions in its application. from this first explanation the author approaches the topic of the importance of visual training in the contemporary society, and analyzes its insertion within the degree in photography of the faculty of design and communication. the text proposes a reflection more from the teaching practice than from the theoretical field analyzing how professors could deal with these questions in a scope in which they are forming professional of in design.
Representando corpo e violência: a inven??o da "violência doméstica" em Timor-Leste
Simi?o, Daniel Schroeter;
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-69092006000200007
Abstract: east timor is now faced to a strong social and political change, which implies, on gender issues, the building of a new morality about domestic physical aggression. based on the local translation of gender equality principles ? seen as universal values ? a set of actions against domestic violence is questioning local practices and attitudes regarding representations of body, gender and sexuality, such as polygamy, the obligations to childbirth and the responsibilities on contraception. based on one year fieldwork in the country, this paper discusses the way the knowledge of experts on the field of gender and development reflects upon political projects which contribute to the shaping of a specific way of experiencing the body, inscribing physical punishment into a new universe of meanings, many of them considerably different from those in force at the countryside. conflicts and syntheses emerged from this process show the importance of being aware of the relationship of the building of local identities faced to broader political and symbolic disputes as well as the limits of the binding of local practices and values thought as universal ones.
Lo sublime en la modernidad: De la retórica a la ética
Scheck,Daniel O;
Revista latinoamericana de filosof?-a , 2009,
Abstract: the aim of this article is to show that during the modern age there existed a period that extended between the last twentyfive years of the 17th century and the final decade of the 18th century, when the issue of the sublime was extensively discussed. moreover, i will try to account for the reasons why i consider that the matter of the sublime became central in this period and the manner in which a group of less known authors influenced on the thought of burke, kant, and schiller. finally, i will maintain the idea that the more substantial discussions on the sublime, at the end of period, centered on the attempt to narrow the gap between the physical dimension and the moral dimension of the subject.
Gullible Yet Intelligible
Daniel O'Brien
Abstracta : Linguagem, Mente e A??o , 2006,
Abstract: In this paper I describe the imaginary community of Gullible. Gulliblians are led by moralpressures to believe whatever they are told and, in the scenario that I sketch, this leads to themhaving widespread contradictory beliefs. This community is nevertheless intelligible to us givenwhat we know about their situation and their moral code. Davidson, however, holds there to bewhat I call a logicist constraint on interpretation: thinkers can only be interpreted if a goodproportion of their beliefs are rational and, for Davidson, rationality entails logical consistency.The possibility of Gullible therefore forces us to reject this logicist aspect of Davidson'saccount of interpretation and intelligibility.
