The crisis and the Social Housing chance
Dora Francese,Claudio Grimellini,Cristian Filagrossi Ambrosino
Techne : Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment , 2011,
Abstract: The present paper, dealing with the residential architecture sector in Europe, is aimed at outlining the authors’ work upon the subject of the Social Housing, by means of some research hints carried out during the latest years in partnership with the Campania Region and the local IACP. Moreover the restrictions and the potentialities are underlined for a complex but fundamental building sector such as the social buildings, within which Local Authorities as well as Enterprises should interact in a synergic way, so as to find the right balance between private benefit and public welfare, by means of an analysis of the present critical situation and definition of the new basis for eco-sustainable technologies as a possible solution for re-funding a more human concept of home .
New Actors on Stage: Analysis of the Emergent Forms of Collective Action in the European Context  [PDF]
Dora Fonseca
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.21005
Abstract: In this article our focus will be on civil society’s responses triggered by the imposition of the societies of austerity. The analysis will be centred on an emerging collective actor, the indignados, and on the conditions that fostered its formation and processes involved in the construction of its identity. To accomplish this task, we retrieved Ernesto Laclau’s political logic of populism and the concept of political developed by Chantal Mouffe and applied them to the formation of the indignados’ identity. This process is conceived in terms of the construction of antagonistic frontiers which divide the social into two opposing fields. This conception allows us to develop an analysis based on the notion of social conflict, as well as a reflection on the potentialities embodied by this new social actor, despite their presentation by the dominant discourse as utopic and therefore impossible. In this proposal, it is our aim to provide a better understanding of what is at stake when we talk about the indignados and a clearer perception of the political dimension of both struggle and resistance.
Analysing a Pricing Policy for a Home Centre: A Case Study  [PDF]
Dora Maglione, Angela Diblasi
Journal of Financial Risk Management (JFRM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jfrm.2014.31002

One critical aspect of retailer category management is pricing the items in order to maximize total profits. To define an appropriate pricing policy, a retailer should evaluate how changes in prices of a set of items may impact their shelves or inter demands. In this setting, elasticities play a major role. In addition, a proper policy can be defined from different points of view. In this paper, estimation of a profit function and its maximization under different scenarios is used as a tool to analyze such policy. Estimation of this function is performed through a previous selection of items within a home center category. Then, an adequate AIDS model allowing calculation of elasticities is fitted. Moreover, a profit function is defined in terms of prices and demands. This functionis linearized for the following two purposes, to express it in terms of elasticities, and to maximize it more easily under the consideration of different sets of item prices defined in a convex set. Then, confidence intervals for the total and marginal profits were built to gather the randomness of demands. The results are applied to the selected items in a home center that behaves as a monopoly in the area.

Industrial Buildings and Their Role in the Transformation of a Regional Greek City: The Tobacco Warehouses of Agrinio  [PDF]
Dora Monioudi-Gavala
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2016.52008
Abstract: This paper presents the role of the tobacco warehouses in the urban transformation of the provincial Greek city of Agrinio. It covers the period from the establishment of the Greek state in 1830 to the end of the interwar period, with special focus on the 1920s and 1930s. The study of this particular city is done within the broader historical environment of the Greek state, in which urban planning and architecture are among the more general issues raised by the historical conditions. The new data brought to light by the study show the significance of the tobacco warehouses in shaping the city of Agrinio, as well as the influences from Central Europe on local industrial architecture during the interwar years.
Environmental Impact of the Construction and Use of a House: Assessment of Building Materials and Electricity End-Uses in a Residential Area of the Province of Norte de Santander, Colombia
Ortiz-Rodríguez,óscar; Castells,Francese; Sonnemann,Guido;
Ingeniería y Universidad , 2012,
Abstract: the objective of this research is to assess the environmental impacts associated with the construction and use of a residential house. building materials and electricity end-uses were assessed. the study was used to highlight some initiatives for the residential-building industrial sector and also some of the aspects that should be considered when trying to improve sustainability indicators. as a study case, a colombian dwelling located in the city of pamplona was chosen. the findings of this research showed that the highest environmental impacts during the dwelling's life cycle take place during the operation phase of the dwelling, while construction phase generates about 7-28% of the impact. transportation and maintenance combined account for less than 10% of the life cycle impacts.
Information Security Issues in a Digital Library Environment: A Literature Review = Dijital Kütüphane Ortam nda Bilgi Güvenli i Sorunlar : Literatür De erlendirmesi
Anday, Audrey,Francese, Enrico,Huurdeman, Hugo C.,Y?lmaz, Muharrem
Bilgi Dünyas? , 2012,
Abstract: This paper aimed to explore the literature on security issues that digital libraries should consider in managing digital resources. Books on information security and network security were consulted as well as several databases such as ERIC, Ebrary, LISA, Science Direct, EbscoHost, ISI, Google Scholar, ProQuest, Emerald Insight, ACM were searched to understand what particular aspect of information security and privacy in digital libraries exist from 2000 - 2010. Security in digital libraries is an issue of the most important, and should be considered carefully in creating policies and strategic plans of institutions wanting to set up a digital library. This paper focused on the four main streams that concerns security in the digital environment, namely: infrastructure, digital content, users and standards and legal issues. This literature review also built upon previous literature reviews, and is one of the few of its kind in the topic. / Bu al ma dijital kütüphanelerin kaynaklar n y netiminde g z nünde bulundurmas gereken güvenlik sorunlar na ili kin literatürü ortaya koymay ama lamaktad r.

An Empirical Evaluation of Technical Drawing Didactic in Virtual Worlds
Sharefa Murad,Ignazio Passero,Rita Francese,Genoveffa Tortora
International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE) , 2011, DOI: 10.3991/ijoe.v7is1.1733
Abstract: This work proposes a 3D Virtual World environment and a didactic experience for training young students in an environment capable of supporting the engineering practices based on technical drawing. The main difficulty of technical drawing consists in representing a 3D object on a 2D medium. This restriction imposes to human mind to be able to summarize the spatial properties of objects on the paper. The proposed system trains these capabilities by requiring students to build, in the simulated environment, simple objects represented with 2D drawings. In this way, the students are not only pushed to move themselves between different dimensionality spaces, but also they benefit of the 3D spaces for moving and exploring the models they are building. An empirical evaluation, conducted as a controlled experiment, has provided enthusiastic results in terms of user performances and impressions.

Documentos y aportes en administraci?3n p?oblica y gesti?3n estatal , 2005,
Abstract: in a little more than a decade, there has been a dramatic change in the in the initially successful viewpoint that prevailed during the public sector reestructuration in most of latin america, and in particular in argentina. the basis and the orientations leading the state's reform policies of the 90s are currently subject to reviewing and reconsideration. this work has several objectives: 1) to review the notion of the state's development and role; 2) to elucidate the new concepts that have been successively formulated by the multilateral organisms (world bank, pnud, cepal); 3) to discuss the "development strategies underlying the different state's reforms agendas and, 4) to describe some of the economic and social characteristics of the recent historical development and their perspectives.
Los ideogramas como estrategia didáctica exitosa en la asignatura introducción a la filosofía
Investigación y Postgrado , 2010,
Abstract: el trabajo se desarrolló en un ambiente de modalidad mixta en una sección del semestre i-2007 del centro de atención caracas-instituto de mejoramiento profesional del magisterio-upel. la estrategia ideográfica permitió reportar el aprendizaje de contenidos de la asignatura introducción a la filosofía. la instrucción presencial se dispuso en cinco sesiones. por correo electrónico, las 31 participantes reportaron sus lecturas a través del uso de ideogramas (mapas mentales o conceptuales, esquemas, redes). para el análisis se utilizó la diferenciación progresiva seleccionando y comparando las creaciones de 8 participantes (39%). finalmente se escogieron 2 con las calificaciones más altas y 2 con las más bajas. quienes elaboraron estrategias ideográficas con conectores relevantes construyeron aprendizajes significativos. posiblemente, los ideogramas se constituyeron en una estrategia didáctica exitosa para enriquecer los aprendizajes y propiciar el desplazamiento cognitivo de las participantes hacia reflexiones filosóficas básicas relacionadas con las escuelas donde laboraban.
