Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2009, DOI: 10.1107/s1600536808041093
Abstract: The title compound, C19H12F2N2O2, a 2:1 product of the reaction of 3-fluorobenzoylchloride and 2-aminopyridine crystallizes with a disordered 3-fluorobenzene ring adopting two conformations [ratio of occupancies 0.959 (4):0.041 (4)]. In the crystal structure, there are no classical hydrogen bonds and interactions comprise C—H...O in the form 2(C—H)...O=C [with motif R21(5)]; C—H...π(arene) interactions are also present.

Abstract: The title compound, C19H12F2N2O2, a 2:1 product of the reaction of 2-fluorobenzoyl chloride and 2-aminopyridine, crystallizes with a disordered 2-fluorobenzene ring adopting two conformations [ratio of occupancies = 0.930 (4):0.070 (4)] in one of the two independent molecules (differing slightly in conformation) comprising the asymmetric unit. In the crystal structure, C—H...O and C—H...π(arene) interactions are present.
Truth, Narrative, and Opening Space  [PDF]
Matthew Z. Donnelly
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2012.24032
Abstract: This paper identifies the difficulties in confronting novel history from both a rigorous scientific and artistic literary perspectives and suggests a practical reconciliation—in the form of a discussion and metaphorical opening space—between the two apparent poles of historical understanding and their accompanying genres, types, and tropes.
Objects, Elements, and Affirmation of the Ethical  [PDF]
Matthew Z. Donnelly
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2013.32045
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the theory of material objects often referred to as mereological nihilism supports a fine-grained and analytically coherent reading of Emmanuel Levinas’s concept of “elements” as articulated by Levinas primarily in Totality and Infinity. This reading, in turn, allows for a second conclusion, namely the affirmation of the ethical as the possible ground of all other philosophy.
Conceptualizing an expanded role for RNs  [PDF]
Glenn Donnelly, Liz Domm
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2014.42011

In our changing health care system, the role of registered nurses (RNs) has become indistinguishable from other nursing and health care providers’ roles. The purpose of this research was to explore the perspectives of nurse leaders and direct care RNs about the existing and future RN scope of practice. This research used an interpretive description analysis on data that was garnered from nurse leaders and RNs through separate focus groups. Participants identified existing threats to their roles, examined their scope of practice and proposed changes to the RN scope of practice. Specific areas that were identified included leadership, advocacy and expansion of RNs practices were dominant themes.

An expected association between low haemoglobin and poor outcome in severe head injury and an insufficiently detailed multivariate analysis
Kieran Donnelly
Critical Care , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/cc11879
Abstract: Given the lack of transfusion trigger and a target haemoglobin concentration post-transfusion in this study, and a generous group upper limit of 90 g/L, would those patients with the lowest initial haemoglobin concentration not be likely to stay below that threshold despite transfusion? Are not the most severe injuries also likely to be associated with a 7-day mean haemoglobin of less than 90 g/L?Injury severity was reportedly accounted for in the multivariate analysis, although the details of the model used were not given. What weighting was given to each variable, such as Glasgow Coma Scale, or CT appearance, and on what basis? Of note is the lack of information regarding other injuries, not just in the multivariate analysis but indeed the entire paper. Were only isolated head injuries considered or were polytrauma patients included in this study?To accept that more than an association exists between two variables - as implied - we must be satisfied of the validity of the multivariate analysis.Donald EG Griesdale, Mypinder S Sekhon, Nielson McLean, William R Henderson and Dean R ChittockWe thank Dr Donnelly for his careful critique of our manuscript [1]. We agree with his assertion that hemoglobin concentration and mortality may be confounded by the severity of illness. In the manuscript, we devote considerable time discussing bias in the context of our results. Despite these concerns, the baseline patient characteristics were remarkably similar between exposure levels. Thus, measured baseline characteristics would be unlikely to account solely for the observed mortality in our study. Although as mentioned in our discussion, we would be unable to account for unmeasured covariates, which could be a significant source of confounding.Another concern expressed by Dr Donnelly was the details of the model building. All covariates included in the final model were chosen a priori based on subject matter knowledge [2]. Age and admission Glasgow Coma Scale were included in
Direitos humanos internacionais: conseqüências n?o intencionais da guerra contra o terrorismo
Donnelly, Jack;
Contexto Internacional , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-85292003000200004
Abstract: the article aims at discussing us foreign policy regarding international human rights after september, 11th. the main argument is that humanitarian concerns have been eclipsed by the re-inflation of security concerns in us foreign policy agenda since the terrorist attacks in 2001. besides, there have been changes in the understanding of security. the definition of security in more ideological terms caused by the war on terror has created a competitive relation between human rights and security interests, retreating the process of change in us foreign policy that had begun after the end of the cold war. the demonization of enemies and washington's tendency towards unilateralism favor a vision of "national security" that leaves little (or no) space for international human rights. however, the consequences of the recent changes in us foreign policy are, to a large extent, unintended. this could allow for a potential increase in the human dimension of security concerns, as long as the international scenario changes in the forthcoming years.
Globalised Girlhood: the teaching of femininity in Cosmopolitan and True Love
Deidre Donnelly
Global Media Journal : African Edition , 2011, DOI: 10.5789/2-1-33
Abstract: A comparison of two South African women's magazines, Cosmopolitan and True Love, via both textual and reader analysis, examines their reception by teenage girls. Do women's magazines serve as cultural developmental markers and informal educational devices in the passage from girlhood to adulthood? The study adopts a poststructuralist view on the gendered self as socially constructed within discourse. Women's magazines give 'feminity'a material form and are discursive sites-of-struggle. Critical discourse analysis is applied to the text analysis, while the concept of ínterpretive repertoires' is applied to the focus group analysis.
European Locations Dreamed with a Limited Imagination
Samantha Donnelly
Image and Narrative : Online Magazine of the Visual Narrative , 2011,
Abstract: : This visual essay develops the idea of the artefact’s ability to suggest, imply or initiate a narrative or string of narrative associations. European Locations Dreamed with a Limited Imagination is a series of images of the same quotidian objects composed differently and photographed from a variety of angles. These common, modern, mass-produced objects range from a reel of cotton and a bull-dog clip to a marble and a gold cup-cake case. Individually these mass produced, cheap objects suggest only ‘use-value’. Here, however, they become representative of possible locations. This sensibility is steered further by the use of simplistic text; these objects appear as though they are advertisements for European getaways. This essay continues Donnelly's interest in the use of found objects, especially the mass-produced, to create tableaux. Her work is made in the studio over a period of time, through questioning, re-phrasing and re-working a range of sculptural matter: household wares, imported fashion bargains and second-hand finds. Donnelly’s methods of production give her work a strong sense of time which mirrors conventions found in popular culture – editing, cropping, elimination, montage and narration. Résumé: Cet essai visuel interroge la capacité de l'objet de suggérer, impliquer, ou susciter un récit ou une cha ne d'associations narrative. European Locations Dreamed with a Limited Imagination est une série d'images des mêmes objets quotidiens, vus différemment et photographiés de plusieurs points de vue. Ces objets banals, modernes, produits en masse, sont d'une grande diversité: une pelote de coton, une laisse de chien, une bille, un moule de patisserie, etc. Pris un à un, ces objets tout à fait "cheap" ne semblent avoir d'autre valeur que leur valeur d'usage. Toutefois, dans la présentat
La construcción social de los derechos humanos internacionales |The social construction of international human rights
Relaciones Internacionales , 2011,
Abstract: Este capítulo, revisado y actualizado a comienzos de 2011, analiza el modo en que los derechos humanos se han construido e integrado en la agenda política internacional desde mediados del siglo XX. Este análisis busca contextualizar algunos de los debates suscitados en el ámbito de los derechos humanos recientemente. Lo hace partiendo de la comprensión de la función de los derechos humanos como instrumentos para la defensa de la dignidad humana frente a las prácticas de los agentes que la amenazan. En este sentido es posible, a día de hoy y de cara al futuro, argumentar su plena validez basándose en su propia condición de construcción social, cuya naturaleza es contingente, y está vinculada a las formas en que se entiende la propia dignidad humana, y el papel del estado como principal garante y fuente de amenazas para los derechos humanos individuales. This chapter, revised and updated in early 2011, examines how human rights have been built and integrated into the international policy agenda since the mid-twentieth century. This analysis seeks to contextualize some of the recent discussions in the area of human rights. It proposes that one may understand the role of human rights as an instrument for defending human dignity against the practices and agents that threaten it. In this sense it is possible, now and in the future, to claim the complete validity of human rights based purely on their status as a social construct, whose nature is contingent, and is linked to the ways in which human dignity is understood, and the state’s role as the main guarantor and source of threat to individual human rights.
