Tourism and Archaeology: Back to Origins
Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning , 2011,
Abstract: Archaeological tourism is an alternative form of cultural tourism, which aims to promote the passion for history and the preservation of historical sites. Unfortunately, today, in Romania, there is not a real connection between archaeology and tourism and there are only few sites exploited for tourism. The interests between archaeology and tourism due to the preservation and the capitalization of the historical remains, generates, in fact a sustainable form of tourism. From this point of view the attractiveness of the sites is based on the idea of preserving the “spirit of place” by safeguarding of tangible and intangible heritage. This is the most important in capitalizing the Romanian rural space, too. A fascinating subject related to archaeological tourism is Roman archaeological remains. In this paper we will make a classification of some roman archaeological sites by the level of importance for tourism. This sites are all situated in rural area: the milestone from the Roman period situated in Aiton Village, the rural settlement from the Roman era, the aqueduct and the Roman road from Cop ceni and the Roman camp, the Roman road, the temples and the possibility for a touristic site museum from Tibiscum . Finally, the paper will consider three sites near Cluj-Napoca: Dealul Lomb (a Roman villa), Polus Centre area (the remains preserved in situ) and the S ndule ti settlement (Roman remains, near the spring of Cop ceni which was captured in the Roman era, too).
Lakes reservoirs and ponds , 2008,
Abstract: Lakes appear under more forms and dimensions and include lots of features that constitute important advantages in defining them as a class of objects that need to be studied. They have very well defined limits and there are open systems that receive water, solar energy and chemical substances from outside the system. The foreign specialty literature provides special attention to the study of the lakes and the swampy fields of their neighbourhood, as well as to the numerous interactions that come out from the existence of these water units. In this purpose, proper paradigms of the study of aquatic systems have been drawn: the paradigm of lakes as microcosmos or integrated ecosystems, paradigm of lakes as experimental systems, paradigm of lakes as chronicles of natural history etc.
Glaucomatous Damage Secondary to Long Term Topical Corticosteroid Use in a 7-Year-Old Female  [PDF]
Michael Greenwood, Florin Grigorian
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2014.41008

Introduction: Topical corticosteroids are commonly prescribed for children with atopic dermatitis. Although generally well tolerated, long term unsupervised use can lead to ocular damage, including glaucoma. Much of the current literature focuses on the periorbital use in older patients. We present a case of an adolescent who suffered glaucomatous damage secondary to long term topical steroid use on her extremities. Methods: This is a case report of a child with extensive work-up for glaucoma suspect. Results: A 7-year-old African American female was found to have glaucomatous damage after using 2.5% hydrocortisone cream on her arms, legs, and back of neck twice daily continuously for 2 years. There were no other mechanisms that could have produced a secondary glaucoma. Congenital anomalous disk is a remote possibility. Discussion: Steroid cream use for atopic dermatitis is relatively common. The side effect profile of topical corticosteroids has been well documented and includes glaucoma. These patients may not have any visual symptoms, and can present at an advanced stage, with irreversible vision loss. Children with atopic dermatitis are especially susceptible to the systemic effects of steroids because of the damaged epithelial layer and also the body surface area to volume, both of which increase the bioavailability of the medication. Conclusion: Because topical steroids are commonly used, especially in children, patients need to be aware of the potentially dangerous side effects, including vision loss from glaucoma.

Arthur R. Matyas;Karoly A. Biro;Daniel Fodorean
PIER , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIER12060507
Abstract: This paper presents the analysis of a six-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine dedicated for electrical power steering system applications. The motor design is briefly described, as well as the construction of the studied motor. The study is validated by finite element method and via experimental results. Some simulated results prove the machine's capability to work in faulty conditions. The machines performances are validated experimentally though scalar control.
The Analysis of Land Use Based on CORINE Land Cover in the Romanian Part of the Tisa Catchment Area
Romanian Review of Regional Studies , 2010,
Abstract: The analysis of the land use structure of the 13 counties of the Romanian part of Tisa catchment area has been made according to the 2000 edition of CORINE Land Cover, while the 1990 edition has been used for comparative purposes. Out of the total area of 8,269,229.48 hectares, the forests cover 37.92%, the arable lands 35.02% and the grasslands 17.97%. The other types of land use have lower weights, such as the continuous and discontinuous urban fabric 4.81%, the orchards 1.10% and the vineyards 0.98%. In the category of forests, the following types of land use are included: broad-leaved forests, which form the majority (24.72%), coniferous forests (6.22%), mixed forests (3.46%) and transitional woodland-shrub areas (3.52%). The forests are mainly located in the Carpathians and the hills. The non-irrigated arable lands (23.50%) are predominant within the arable lands. They lie mostly in the Western Plain and in the basins and corridors of the Transylvanian Depression and the Western Hills. The analysis of the dynamics of the land use structure between 1990 and 2000 indicates a relative stability in the case of forests, a decrease of arable lands and an increase of grasslands.
Family Functioning and Adolescents’ Psychological Well-Being in Families with a TBI Parent  [PDF]
Dan Florin Stanescu, Georg Romer
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.27104
Abstract: This study aimed at examining the interrelation between family functioning and children’s mental health in families with a brain injured parent. The first goal of this study was to investigate the predictive power of fam- ily functioning for children’s psychological well-being. Second, differential sub-dimensions of family function- ing were examined in respect of their predictive power for children’s psychological adaptation. Third, coping strategies on the family system level were differentiated in terms of their predictive power both for family func- tioning and for children’s psychosocial adjustment. 58 families were included in the current study. The following instruments were used: Youth Self Report, Family Crisis Oriented Personal Scales, and Family Assessment Device. Family dysfunction as a whole positively correlates with psychological symptoms of adolescents; four sub-dimensions of family functioning predicted children’s problems, namely affective responsiveness, affective involvement, roles, and communication. This research is all the more informative as the studies on the subject are nearly inexistent, and since it focuses on a category of utmost value—children.
Emergent Behaviors in Social Networks of Adaptive Agents

Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/857512
Abstract: Designing multiagent systems that can exhibit coherent group behavior based on a small number of simple rules is a very challenging problem. The evolution of mobile computing environments has created a need for adaptive, robust systems, whose components should be able to cooperate in order to solve the tasks continuously received from users or other software agents. In this paper, an interaction protocol for a task allocation system is proposed, which can reveal the formation of social networks as an emergent property. The agents can improve their solving ability by learning and can collaborate with their peers to deal with more difficult tasks. The experiments show that the evolution of the social networks is similar under a great variety of settings and depends only on the dynamism of the environment. The average number of connections and resources of the agents follows a power law distribution. Different configurations are studied in order to find the optimal set of parameters that leads to the maximum overall efficiency of the multiagent system.
Optimization of Resource Control for Transitions in Complex Systems
Florin Pop
Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/625861
Abstract: In complex systems like Large-Scale Distributed Systems (LSDSs) the optimization of resource control is an open issue. The large number of resources and multicriteria optimization requirements make the optimization problem a complex one. The importance of resource control increases with the need of use for industrial process and manufacturing, being a key solution for QoS assuring. This paper presents different solutions for multiobjective decentralized control models for tasks assignment in LSDS. The transaction in real-time complex system is modeled in simulation by tasks which will be scheduled and executed in a distributed system, so a set of specifications and requirements are known. The paper presents a critical analysis of existing solutions and focuses on a genetic-based algorithm for optimization. The contribution of the algorithm is the fitness function that includes multiobjective criteria for optimization in different way. Several experimental scenarios, modeled using simulation, were considered to offer a support for analysis of near-optimal solution for resource selection.
Introduction to the Yang-Baxter Equation with Open Problems
Florin Nichita
Axioms , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/axioms1010033
Abstract: The Yang-Baxter equation first appeared in theoretical physics, in a paper by the Nobel laureate C. N. Yang, and in statistical mechanics, in R. J. Baxter’s work. Later, it turned out that this equation plays a crucial role in: quantum groups, knot theory, braided categories, analysis of integrable systems, quantum mechanics, non-commutative descent theory, quantum computing, non-commutative geometry, etc. Many scientists have found solutions for the Yang-Baxter equation, obtaining qualitative results (using the axioms of various algebraic structures) or quantitative results (usually using computer calculations). However, the full classification of its solutions remains an open problem. In this paper, we present the (set-theoretical) Yang-Baxter equation, we sketch the proof of a new theorem, we state some problems, and discuss about directions for future research.
Byzantion nea hellás , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-84712011000100005
Abstract: it has been recently claimed that the first reference to sklavinia as a territory inhabited primarily by slavs is to be found in theophanes confessor. a particular passage in theophylact simocatta in which the word appears has been supposedly mistranslated. in reality, the passage in question contains a reference to sklavinia at least 150 years older than the chronographia of theophanes.
