Long-Run Effects of Customs Union between European Union and Turkey: Is it Zero-Sum Game  [PDF]
Nedret Demirci, Levent Ayd?n
Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.22018
Abstract: Without being a full member of the European Union, Turkey’s participation to the Unity raised some substantial and continued questions in Turkey about the economic results of an regional integration. Some argue that, particularly adoption of the Union’s common external tariff regime would have a devastating effect on Turkey’s trade. The aim of this paper is to search the pros and cons of customs union associated with common external tariff between Turkey and European Union. Our study especially focuses on the effects of common external tariff to Turkey’s trade. The simulation results show that Turkey has been benefiting from the noticeable tariff liberalization as well as improved market conditions in line with EU since it ratified custom union with EU.
Unusual Initial Presentation Of Celiac Disease in Children: Three Case Reports  [PDF]
Sevgi Buyukbese Sarsu, Mustafa Demirci
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2016.61010
Abstract: Background: The togetherness of invagination with celiac disease is an extremely rare condition especially in children. However, invagination may be the presenting symptom of celiac disease. Moreover, recurrent invaginations have been also reported in patients with celiac disease. Aim: To increase the awareness of clinicians about togetherness of these conditions. Case Presentation: Herein, we will discuss three children with diagnosis of celiac disease who presented with invagination and intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Conclusion: Children with pseudo-obstruction and invagination without an underlying etiology should be evaluated for the presence of celiac disease, especially if they have accompanying growth retardation or anemia and if they are at an unusual age for invagination. Further studies are warranted to elucidate the exact relationship of invagination with celiac disease.
Perceptions and attitudes of geography teachers to biotechnology: A study focusing on genetically modified (GM) foods
A Demirci
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: This study reports the perceptions and attitudes of geography teachers towards biotechnology and genetically-modified (GM) foods in Turkey. A survey was conducted with secondary school geography teachers attending teacher workshops in various parts of the country in 2008 and was responded to by 78 teachers from 31 different provinces. The study not only revealed important results about the perceptions of geography teachers towards biotechnology and GM foods but also provided an understanding of the current perceptions of the public towards these two fields in the country. The study revealed that teachers did not have enough information about biotechnology and GM foods. This lack of knowledge played an important role in determining teachers’ perceptions and attitudes towards these two fields. The majority of teachers supported the use of biotechnology for disease treatment and medicine production. However, their support declined very sharply with regard to cloning human cells, producing GM foods, and cloning animals. General attitudes of teachers to GM foods were mainly negative. The majority of teachers thought that GM foods were risky for human health and the environment. This negative attitude of teachers towards GM foods is likely to continue until the public becomes better informed about biotechnological applications and the positive outcomes of producing GM foods.
The effects of constructivist learning approach on the students’ psychomotor and cognitive field achievements in Canon teaching
Bar?? Demirci
International Journal of Human Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The study aims to examine the level the psychomotor and cognitive field achievements of the students learning canon songs in primary school 6th grade music education according to constructivist learning approach and conventional teaching methods(e.g. question& answer, practice, analysis), to compare the differences between the experimental and control groups and finally to determine their permanency levels. For the research, 2x2 split-plot experimental designs were used. In this design, the first factor displays intervention groups (experimental and control), and the second factor shows pretest-posttest measurements according to the dependent variables of the study. In terms of analysis, four statistical analysis methods were used and data were analyzed by means of SPSS for Windows 15.00. Differences between the pre and post psychomotor achievement tests scores in the experimental group were found to be significant in terms of the evaluation criteria. The pre and post tests achievement scores of the students in the control group, while the differences for the five of scores of the evaluation criteria are statistically significant, for one criterion the difference was found insignificant. As for the permanency tests, it is seen that, students’ posttest and permanency test performances in the control and experimental groups have permanent effects on their psychomotor achievement levels but in terms of permanency, certain decreases compared to posttest results were found. It is also seen that rank means and mean scores of the experimental group are higher than the scores of the control group. It can be said that in canon teaching cognitive field, the effects of the teaching methods implemented based on constructivist and conventional approach have decreased in the course of time.

Some Notes on the Avarizhanes of the Liva of Ni de in the Province of Karaman, c.1620-1700////Karaman Eyaleti Ni de Livas Avarizhaneleri üzerinde Baz Dü ünceler, 1620-1700

History Studies : International Journal of History , 2012,
Abstract: Relying on the avarizhanes and nüzul registers of the Ottoman archive in Istanbul, this article examines the tax records of 8 kaza, sub-divisions, and their tax records in Ni de Liva of the Karaman Province between 1621 and 1700. By focusing on the fluctuating numbers of avarizhanes in Liva-district level, the article explains the socio-political conditions of these regions.
Developing Web-oriented Homework System to Assess Students’ Introductory Physics Course Performance and Compare to Paper-based Peer Homework
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2006,
Abstract: The World Wide Web influences education and our lives in many ways. Nowadays, Web-based homework has been becoming widespread practice in physics courses and some other courses as well. Although are some disputes whether this is an encouraging or risky development for student learning, there is limited research assessing the pedagogical effect of changing the medium from written, hand-graded homework to online oriented, computer-graded homework. In this study, web-oriented homework system is developed to assess students’ introductory physics course performance. Later on, these results are compared with paper-based (peer) homework performance for mid enrollment physics courses. One of two identical sections of introductory physics course students received paper-based, hand graded group homework while the other received the individual web-based homework. Then two groups’ on conceptual and problem-solving performance measures are compared. No significant differences were found in students’ Force Concept Inventory (FCI) test scores; however, average homework performance scores were significant that could be attributed to the homework method used in favor of paper-based peer homework group.
Electromagnetic Exposure May Interfere with the Prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus in Turkey
Hakan Demirci
Turkish Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism , 2012,
Abstract: Exposure to electromagnetic fields may cause or worsen diabetes mellitus. Cancer has been studied many times but diabetes has not been discussed in terms of electromagnetic exposure. We combined the data of two large studies that were recently conducted in Turkey. We found that electromagnetic pollution may negatively affect health. Turk Jem 2012; 16: 41-2
Control of a Double-Inverted Pendulum for Nonlinear System
Mustafa Demirci
Sel?uk Journal of Applied Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: The aim of the paper is to compare two different techniques to design a stabilizing control the double inverted pendulum in an upright position. These techniques are the Pole Placement and Linear Quadratic Regulator. Techniques have been used to design controls for the nonlinear system. For our double pendulum system, it would be desirable to keep the values of the state variables small as a large displacement from the origin may cause the nonlinear system to be unstable we would also interested in the control that gives the largest region of stability for the system, as we then could allow a larger set of perturbations from upright position.
