Abstract: the present study was aimed at identifying personality traits in adolescent offenders. with this purpose, millon's adolescent clinical inventory (maci) was administered to a sample of 86 chilean male adolescents who had broken de law. data obtained were analyzed by a combination of an hj-biplot multivariate analysis and an analysis by conglomerates. these analyses yielded five groupings of personality profiles: (a) transgressor-delictual type "t-d", (b) the opossitionistic-selfdestructive type "o-a", (c) the inhibited-avoiding type "i-e", (d) the anxious-dependent type "d-a", and (e) the subclinical type "sub". these results are discussed in terms of the tentative importance that personality profiles may have as predictors of a greater probability of recursiveness and harmfulness of crimes committed by adolescents, as well as in terms of the relevance gained by personality assessment in adolescents, particularly in the context of judicial work.

Abstract: El presente estudio tuvo por objetivo identificar características de personalidad en adolescentes reincidentes en conductas antisociales. Con ese propósito se administró el Inventario Clínico para Adolescentes de Millon MACI (Millon, 1993) a una muestra de 86 adolescentes varones chilenos infractores de Ley. Los datos obtenidos fueron analizados mediante la combinación de un análisis de conglomerados y un análisis multivariado HJ-Biplot, resultando en la detección de las siguientes cinco agrupaciones de perfiles de personalidad: a) el tipo Transgresor Delictual "T-D", b) el tipo Oposicionista-Autodestructivo "O-A", c) el tipo Inhibido-Evitativo "I-E", d) el tipo Dependiente-Ansioso "D-A" y e) el tipo Subclínico "Sub". Estos resultados se discuten en términos de la importancia que pueden tener la evaluación psicológica de adolescentes en contextos judiciales y los perfiles de personalidad en interacción con factores contextuales, los que pueden constituir un factor de riesgo relevante para una mayor reincidencia y peligrosidad en los delitos cometidos por adolescentes.

Latent Class Approach to Estimate the Willingness to Pay for Transit User Information  [PDF]
Pietro Zito, Giuseppe Salvo
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2012.23021
Abstract: The aim of analysis is to understand how unreliable information influences user behaviour and how much it discourages public transport use. For this purpose, a Stated Preference Survey was carried out in order to know the preferences of public transport users relating to information needs and uncertainty on the information provided by Advanced Traveller Information System (ATIS). The perceived uncertainty is defined as information inaccuracy. In our study, we considered the difference between forecasted or scheduled waiting time at the bus stop and/or metro station provided by ATIS, and that experienced by user, to catch the bus and/or metro. A questionnaire was submitted to an appropriate sample of Palermo’s population. A Latent Class Logit model was calibrated, taking into account attributes of cost, information inaccuracy, travel time, waiting time, and cut-offs in order to reveal preference heterogeneity in the perceived information. The calibrated model showed various sources of preference heterogeneity in the perceived information of public transport users as highlighted by the analysis reported. Finally, the willingness to pay was estimated, confirming a great sensitivity to the perceived information, provided by ATIS.
Maxwell’s Dynamical Philosophy: An Early Solution to the Problem of a Discrepancy between Particles and Waves  [PDF]
Salvo D’Agostino
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2014.33012
Abstract: J. C. Maxwell contributed to an important philosophy of science, the so-called Dynamical Philosophy and Dynamical Approach to his theories. He meant it by a Dynamical Approach a theory of motions of the moving particle that could dispense with the detailed mechanism of motion. In order to develop this type of approach, he applied a modified form of Lagrange's equations in his 1865 essay “A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field” and in his master opus “A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism”. But an attentive historical research has also realized that he used an analogous approach in his contribution to a kinetic theory of gases, the well known statistical law of velocities.
A Good Chance for the Cat’s Life: Erwin Schroedinger’s New Statistics and a Second Quantization Theory of Quantum  [PDF]
Salvo D’Agostino
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2015.41001
Abstract: In his paper on the Cat’s uncertain situation between life and death, S. intended to criticize the Copenhagen interpretation of Quantum Mechanics and, conversely, to assert the consistency of his own wavelike view of the theory. His ideas contrasted with Heisenberg and Bohr’s positions, but also with Einstein’s attempt at a classically statistical interpretation of a quantum theory. His criticism therefore did not intend to discredit the whole Quantum Mechanics. In the fifties, he proposed a second quantization approach to a many particles state of the theory, which included his New Statistics. He asserted that the new approach modified some aspects of his famous 1926 equations. In my paper, I argue that S.’s new ideas in the fifties are related to his 1920 and 1926 contributions on rarified gas theory.
An Overview of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries’ Theories of Light, Ether, and Electromagnetic Waves  [PDF]
Salvo D’Agostino
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2016.51001
Abstract: Johannes Kepler, the seventeenth century celebrated astronomer, considered vision as the effect of its alleged cause—the Lumen. Since many centuries, scientists and philosophers of Light were especially interested in theories and experiments on the cause-effect relationship between our vision and its alleged cause. But the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries’ contributions of Helmholtz, Maxwell, Hertz, and Lorentz, proved that Light was an electromagnetic wavelike phenomenon, which propagated trough space or ether by an exceptionally high velocity. In my paper I analyze some of the reasons that might justify the controversies among the major experts in Physics and Electrodynamics. In 1905 Albert Einstein found that abolishing Ether would remarkably improve his new Special Relativity theory, and Maxwell’s and Hertz’s Electrodynamics. His theory was accepted by a large majority of physicists, Max Planck included, but he also found a ten-year silence on the side of Poincaré, and moderate oppositions from Lorentz, the great expert in classical Electrodynamics.
Equivalence Principle and Ether: Two Revolutionary Kernels of Einstein’s General Relativity  [PDF]
Salvo D’agostino
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2016.55019
Abstract: Einstein’s discovery of the Equivalence Principle is to be considered as the most fundamental concept at the origin of his General Relativity. I highlight that the ether problem is related with Enstein’s conception of gravitational waves as a perturbation of the space-time curvature, formalized as a specific space-time process, and not as the effect of a whatever supporting medium. Quite differently, the nineteenth century field theory of gravitation supported by physicists such as Maxwell, Heaviside, and Hertz, was based on a search for substantial ether, and on a parallelism with Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetic waves. The negative results of their theories proved that parallelism was a wrong approach. Einstein’s genius superseded their approach by considering that it was not a matter of the ether’s constitution, but of a fundamental change in the role and nature of physics. In my paper I refer to Einstein’s different approaches to ether since his 1905 Special Relativity up to his 1950’ views. I argue that his different attempts were symptoms of the difficulty of his revolutionary innovation.

Effect of user fee on patient’s welfare and efficiency in a two tier health care market  [PDF]
Eugenia Amporfu
Health (Health) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/health.2010.29164
Abstract: This is a theoretical paper examining the effect of user fee on patients’ welfare and social welfare under three forms of provider reimbursements: full cost, prospective payment and cost sharing. The paper extends Rickman and McGuire (1999) by introducing user fee to the public sector and maintaining the assumption that providers can work in both the private and public health sectors. Contrary to previous studies, this study shows that efficiency is possible under the full cost reimbursement. The paper also shows the conditions under which efficiency is possible under each reimbursement scheme. Patient’s welfare can improve with the introduction of user fee when services in the public and private sector are complementary.
