ECTS & DS Labels Keys for Academic Excellence
Radu Stoika,Madlena Nen
EIRP Proceedings , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present an assessment of the importance of how and what are the actualresults after the higher education institutions have had designed the credits system in direct relations withtheir own characteristics. Also is important to identify and analyze how are the effects after the ultimatedesign of students guides and if those effects are bringing with them better feedback in terms of increasingnumber of cohorts of students. With this research paper we intend to make an overview of the results afterthis changes (re-design the curriculum, ECTS credit system, new learning modules, better, flexible andcomprehensive students guides) making the institutions more close to excellence in education and get readyfor the ECTS & DS Labels – awarded by the European Commission. All of those institutional changes can bemeasured in the final stage by an very actual indicator like the attainment and completion rates as well as bythe labor market prospects of graduates.
Operations & Maintenance Business Model Transformation—Multiple Case Studies  [PDF]
Harri Hyv?nen
Modern Economy (ME) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/me.2014.513108
Abstract: Capital goods companies’ service offering has been mainly to provide spare parts and maintenance work. In search of growth, these companies have expanded to new areas, such as Operations & Maintenance. Instead of operating and maintaining e.g. production processes itself, a customer can outsource a wide variety of managed services based on agreed service levels. There has been a special focus on global information management know-how, governance, process know-how, physical assets, and spare and wear parts. In order to get a good coverage of case studies, we selected five large global suppliers and two customer companies in telecommunication, energy, mining, and pulp and paper business. By implementing the right capabilities in information man- agement and human resources, by managing contract through governance models and by offering right products, a traditional company can transform to the Operations & Maintenance busi- ness model.
Urinary stones in pediatric age group
Abdurrahman ?nen
Turk Pediatri Ar?ivi , 2010,
Abstract: The presenting symptoms of stone disease in children are rather different than the adult patients.US, direct urinary X-ray exam or/and computarized tomography are the diagnostic tools of choice.In case of obstruction,infection,or in the presence of larger stones prone to obstructive signs are the candidates of surgical intervention. In case of acute conditions insertion of JJ stents or percutaneous nephrostomy can be a solution.Asymptomatic and small stones should be treated by minimal invazive procedures such as. ESWL, URS or PNL. According to the results of biochemical analysis, medical treatment or/and dietary recommendations ar very important for the long term prophylaxis.

Managing Well-Being at Work during 2010s—Expert Viewpoints  [PDF]
Janne Sinisammal, Pekka Belt, Janne H?rk?nen, Matti M?tt?nen, Seppo V?yrynen
Open Journal of Safety Science and Technology (OJSST) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojsst.2012.21004
Abstract: Current working life is turbulent making maintaining well-being at work challenging. This turbulence necessitates working organisations and their managers to be more sensitive and agile. Managers must understand the human role in technical and organisational systems. The aim of this research is to come up with a description of aspects that influence well-being at work that will be applicable for different types of work places. The research is conducted by interviewing experts, currently working as researchers, consultants and managers, both in private and public organisations. According to the results of this research, well-being at work can be divided into five different aspects: employee, work, work community, management, and external factors. The emphasis on these aspects varies due to changes in external business environment and internal working community. Hence, there is a need for managers to react accordingly.
Exploitation of Bile Acid Transport Systems in Prodrug Design
Elina Siev?nen
Molecules , 2007, DOI: 10.3390/12081859
Abstract: The enterohepatic circulation of bile acids is one of the most efficient recycling routes in the human body. It is a complex process involving numerous transport proteins, which serve to transport bile acids from the small intestine into portal circulation, from the portal circulation into the hepatocyte, from the hepatocyte into the bile, and from the gall bladder to the small intestine. The tremendous transport capacity and organ specificity of enterohepatic circulation combined with versatile derivatization possibilities, rigid steroidal backbone, enantiomeric purity, availability, and low cost have made bile acids attractive tools in designing pharmacological hybrid molecules and prodrugs with the view of improving intestinal absorption, increasing the metabolic stability of pharmaceuticals, specifically targeting drugs to organs involved in enterohepatic circulation, as well as sustaining therapeutically reasonable systemic concentrations of active agents. This article briefly describes bile acid transport proteins involved in enterohepatic circulation, summarizes the key factors affecting on the transport by these proteins, and reviews the use of bile acids and their derivatives in designing prodrugs capable of exploiting the bile acid transport system.
On Sources of Political Violence in Africa: The Case of "Marginalizing State" in Sudan
Yl?nen, Aleksi;
Política y cultura , 2009,
Abstract: several theories have sought to explain the prevalence of political instability and war in africa since independence, culminating in the recent econocentric tendency. one of the most representative cases in africa, sudan, has experienced insurgencies continuously for decades. it is argued in this article that to highlight the origins of insurgencies in africa and sudan, the economic realities need to be considered in their proper social and political contexts. to undertake this task a concept of "marginalizing state" based on a center-periphery approach is introduced, pointing to the continuing importance of colonial and pre-colonial governance legacies in sudan.
Alkohol i svenska damtidningsannonser fr n 1960-talet till 2000-talet

Abstract: Drinking in Swedish women's magazines' advertisements from the 1960s to the 2000s AIMS - The article focuses on what kind of drinking-related subject positions have appeared as acceptable and desirable in women's magazine advertisements over the past few decades, how those positions have changed and shifted as we move closer to the present day, and how these changes reflect the shifting borderline between the private and public domain. MATERIAL - The material consists of alcohol-related advertisements published in Swedish women's magazines from the 1960s to the 2000s (n=1,079). METHOD - The advertisements are approached and analysed as performances in which gender is made visible "here and now" by placing women in particular subject positions. The analysis draws attention to how the subject positions appearing in the advertisements are repeatedly attached to pleasure (desire), the physical body (sex) and social roles, norms and lifestyles (gender). RESULTS - The analysis reveals both continuity and variability in alcohol-related advertising in Swedish women's magazines. In the 1960s alcohol-related advertisements repeatedly positioned women in the private domain to represent the traditional norms of the "housewife contract", or outside the home to represent the new gender expectations of the "equality contract". As we draw closer to the present day, the nature of these subject positions begins to change. CONCLUSIONS - Women's equality, freedom and independence do not increase linearly, nor does the home or the private domain become gender neutral. On the contrary, it seems that the traditional gender system is persistently reproduced. A comparison of the Swedish and Finnish material reveals some intriguing similarities and differences in women's subject positions.
Freedom, Civility and Activeness
Miikka Pyykk nen
Nordic Journal of Migration Research , 2012, DOI: 10.2478/v10202-011-0023-z
Abstract: This article explores the leisure time and civic activities of ‘multicultural youth’ in Finland. The theoretic-conceptual framework is the Foucauldian governmentality approach and Foucault's four step model of the ethical self-formation of the moral subject. This toolkit exposes how the subjectivation of the multicultural youth takes place in their leisure time activities and civic action, and connects and disconnects with the desires and expectations of administration and youth workers. The leisure time subjectivation of the youth implements on the interface of their own ‘self-driven’ activities and interests and more or less programmatic governance of official youth work with its integration-related rationalities.
Investigation That the Serum Neopterin Levels in Nonreplicative HBV Carriers, the Patients Infected Chronic HBV and Natural Immunized Persons
G?nen ? et al.
Konuralp Tip Dergisi , 2010,
Abstract: Aim: Neopterin is a pyrazino-pyrimidine compound, which originate, from guanosine triphosphate. Its derivatives are produced by human monocyte, macrophages and dendritic cells upon stimulations with interferon-γ. Measurement of neopterin concentrations in human body fluids allows insight into a specific aspect of immunity, namely, the cell mediated immune response. The aim of this study was to investigate the levels of neopterin in patients infected hepatitis B.Material and Methods: In this study, we investigated of serum neopterin levels in nonreplicative HBV carriers, patients with chronic HBV infection and naturel immunized persons against to HBV. 20 patients with nonreplicative HBV carriers (group 1), 20 patients with chronic HBV infections (group 2), 20 persons with natural immunized against to HBV (group 3)’and 20 healthy persons (group 4)’had included to study. Results: Serum neopterin levels were 7,44 ± 3,44 nmol/l in group 1, 18,58 ± 12,19 nmol/l in group 2, 7,51 ± 10,18 nmol/l in group 3, 5,71 ± 2,92 nmol/l in group 4. The difference between group 1 and group 4, group 3 and group 4 was not statistically significant (p>0.05). The difference among between group 2 and the other groups was statistically significant (p<0.05).Conclusion: In, conclusion; neopterin can be used as marker in nonreplicative HBV carriers and patients with chronic HBV infection. But we believe that further studies with large series are needed to using routine.
Revisionary and Descriptive Metaphysics
Markku Kein?nen
Philosophica , 2008,
Abstract: The goal of formal ontological inquiry is to reveal the categorial structure of the mind-independent reality. In the first part of this article, I criticize two popular ways to study the categorial structure, Strong and Weak Modelling. In the second part of the article (secs. 3-5), I present my positive account. The systematic description of the different kinds of entities assumed by our commonsense conceptions (Descriptive Metaphysics) forms a starting-point of the study of the categorial structure of the world. However, it is the task of Revisionary Metaphysics to seek for the best conception of the categorial structure. Revisionary Metaphysics proceeds as testing alternative conceptions of the categorial structure (different categorial schemes). The main new contribution of the article is to propose certain general principles for the comparison of such alternative conceptions.
