A Political End to a Pioneering Career: Marianne Beth and the Psychology of Religion
Jacob A. Belzen
Religions , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/rel2030247
Abstract: Although forgotten in both Religionswissenschaft (the Science of Religion) and psychology, Marianne Beth (1880-1984), initially trained as a lawyer and already in 1928 called a “leading European woman”, must be considered as one of the female pioneers of these fields. She has been active especially in the psychology of religion, a field in which she, together with her husband Karl Beth, founded a research institute, an international organization and a journal. In 1932, the Beths organized in Vienna (where Karl was a professor) the largest conference ever in the history of the psychology of religion. Because of her Jewish descent, Marianne Beth fled to the USA when Austria was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1938. This brought an abrupt end to her career as researcher and writer. The article reconstructs Marianne Beth’s path into psychology, analyzes some of her work and puts her achievements in an international perspective.

Cultura, Religi o e Self-Dialógico. Raízes e Caráter de uma Psicologia Cultural Secular da Religi o
Jacob A. Belzen
REVER : Revista de Estudos da Religi?o , 2009,
Abstract: O artigo pretende introduzir o leitor à Psicologia Cultural da Religi o, tomando por base o desenvolvimento histórico desta abordagem psicológica na Holanda da primeira metade do século XX até nossos dias. O artigo conecta a Psicologia Cultural da Religi o à teoria do self dialógico (dialogical self), assim como o concebem os psicólogos H. J. M Hermans e H. J. G. Kempen, partindo de autores que têm sua origem no pragmatismo, no construcionismo e nas chamadas teorias narrativas. A preocupa o central do autor é a de deixar clara a importancia da dimens o cultural para a Psicologia da Religi o. Neste sentido, ele prop e uma Psicologia Cultural da Religi o e mostra como ela vem sendo elaborada na Holanda a partir de impulsos nascidos na Universidade de Nimega.
Psicologia Cultural da Religi o: Perspectivas, Desafios, Possibilidades
Jacob A. Belzen
REVER : Revista de Estudos da Religi?o , 2009,
Abstract: Após definir o que é Psicologia da Religi o, o autor assinala que esta disciplina pode ser estudada a partir de várias perspectivas, mas desde uma perspectiva que permita distinguir suas características propriamente psicológicas. A Psicologia Cultural oferece exatamente esta possibilidade. Embora possam ser identificados vários tipos de Psicologia Cultural, o desafio contemporaneo para a Psicologia da Religi o é o emprego daquelas aproxima es que permitem a conceitua o e investiga o das rela es entre religi o como fen meno cultural e o funcionamento psíquico. Este artigo passa em revista algumas teorias antigas da Psicologia compatíveis com o insight da Psicologia Cultural, para discutir, em seguida, algumas aproxima es mais promissoras e comentar outras que estudam a Religi o por meio da Psicologia.
Psychology of Religion: Conditions and Causes
Jacob A. v. Belzen
Journal für Psychologie , 2008,
Abstract: The article deals with three questions: 1. what is psychology of religion, 2. why did it no longer exist (at least no longer in Germany), 3. why should it, at least at some places, exist?

Abstract: Earlier study on thymine distribution in coding frames of mRNAs reveals that frame 1 prefers to have a defined number of thymine. The same in untranslated regions (UTRs) are further looked in to check this distribution in different frames. The results reveal that there is no such preference over the thymine distribution in different frames. Also confirms the earlier report of defined number of thymine in different frames of coding regions.
Low-Canopy Seagrass Beds Still Provide Important Coastal Protection Services

Abstract: One of the most frequently quoted ecosystem services of seagrass meadows is their value for coastal protection. Many studies emphasize the role of above-ground shoots in attenuating waves, enhancing sedimentation and preventing erosion. This raises the question if short-leaved, low density (grazed) seagrass meadows with most of their biomass in belowground tissues can also stabilize sediments. We examined this by combining manipulative field experiments and wave measurements along a typical tropical reef flat where green turtles intensively graze upon the seagrass canopy. We experimentally manipulated wave energy and grazing intensity along a transect perpendicular to the beach, and compared sediment bed level change between vegetated and experimentally created bare plots at three distances from the beach. Our experiments showed that i) even the short-leaved, low-biomass and heavily-grazed seagrass vegetation reduced wave-induced sediment erosion up to threefold, and ii) that erosion was a function of location along the vegetated reef flat. Where other studies stress the importance of the seagrass canopy for shoreline protection, our study on open, low-biomass and heavily grazed seagrass beds strongly suggests that belowground biomass also has a major effect on the immobilization of sediment. These results imply that, compared to shallow unvegetated nearshore reef flats, the presence of a short, low-biomass seagrass meadow maintains a higher bed level, attenuating waves before reaching the beach and hence lowering beach erosion rates. We propose that the sole use of aboveground biomass as a proxy for valuing coastal protection services should be reconsidered.

DNA based Cryptography: An Overview and Analysis
Grasha Jacob,A. Murugan
International Journal of Emerging Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: With the growth of technological advancements, the threats dealt by a user grow exponentially. Hence security has become a critical issue in data storage and transmission. As traditional cryptographic systems are now vulnerable to attacks, the concept of using DNA Cryptography has been identified as a possible technology that brings forward a new hope for unbreakable algorithms. This paper analyzes the different approaches on DNA based Cryptography.
