Revista Brasileira de Ciências do Envelhecimento Humano , 2006,
Abstract: Os idosos sofrem inúmeras repress es culturais e preconceitos, porém a discuss o é ainda maior quando se aborda a sexualidade. A sociedade designa a mulher e o homem idosos como incapazes de exercerem sua sexualidade, ainda que, independentemente disso, o desejo sexual se mantenha presente em todas as fases da vida. Sendo a afetividade um determinante do processo do envelhecer saudável, esta pesquisa objetiva descobrir como as mulheres experienciam o namoro na terceira idade. Trata-se de um estudo exploratório e descritivo de abordagem qualitativa, cujas palavras-chave s o: enfermagem, família, idosos, sexualidade. A pesquisa foi desenvolvida com mulheres que freqüentam grupos de terceira idade e que vivenciaram o namoro nesta fase da vida, no período de dezembro de 2003 a mar o de 2004, no município de Passo Fundo. Utilizou-se grupo focal como técnica de coleta de dados e, para tratamento, a análise temática (MINAYO, 1996). Como resultado emergiram as seguintes temáticas: namorar é a melhor coisa da vida (é carinho, cuidado e zelo); entre a censura e o apoio (o olhar da família sobre o namoro dos mais velhos); namoro na terceira idade (tempo de rever valores e conceitos); prazer e perigo (quando a confian a sublima a precau o).

Abstract: Addressing of packets within the mobile network which makes this as novel application which enables this as a real time usage in the emergency places where we can seek immediate help from in and around the area where the help is to be see ked . It can also be used in the military training places where the messages can be passed through packets in the secure way to the peoples who are involving in the training in the particular areas. The important implementation in the geoaddressing is via a geo-cast protocol, where the messages selectively transmit packet based on the certain location. It defines a novel geo-cast heuristic, the Center Distance with Priority Heuristic, which both significantly improves on reliability of existing scalable geo-casts and yet also remains scalable as the complexity increases. It is a new technique, and it is an evaluation study comparing the results.
The extent of population genetic subdivision differs among four co-distributed shark species in the Indo-Australian archipelago
Jenny R Ovenden, Tom Kashiwagi, Damien Broderick, Jenny Giles, John Salini
BMC Evolutionary Biology , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2148-9-40
Abstract: Populations of four commercially harvested shark species (Carcharhinus obscurus, Carcharhinus sorrah, Prionace glauca, Sphyrna lewini) were sampled from northern Australia and central Indonesia. Neutral genetic markers (mitochondrial DNA control region sequence and allelic variation at co-dominant microsatellite loci) revealed genetic subdivision between Australian and Indonesian populations of C. sorrah. Further research is needed to address the possibility of genetic subdivision among C. obscurus populations. There was no evidence of genetic subdivision for P. glauca and S. lewini populations, but the sampling represented a relatively small part of their distributional range. For these species, more detailed analyses of population genetic structure is recommended in the future.Cooperative management between Australia and Indonesia is the best option at present for P. glauca and S. lewini, while C. sorrah and C. obscurus should be managed independently. On-going research on these and other exploited shark and ray species is strongly recommended. Biological and ecological similarity between species may not be a predictor of population genetic structure, so species-specific studies are recommended to provide new data to assist with sustainable fisheries management.The Indo-Australian archipelago is a biogeograhically complex region encompassing a series of continental shelves, volcanic mountainous islands and deep-sea trenches. The Indonesian section straddles the equator and extends about 5000 km from east to west. It has the world's highest marine endemism; including most the diverse sea-grass meadows, greatest expanses of mangroves and most extensive coral reef communities [1]. The Australian section is dominated by an extensive continental shelf extending offshore from three Australian state jurisdictions; Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. As the world's fourth most populous nation, Indonesia has a high demand for food from the sea. The landed
Osteochondroma of the scapula: a case report

Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology , 2007, DOI: 10.1007/s10195-007-0159-8
Abstract: Osteochondroma is one of the most common benign tumors of the axial skeleton. Location of a solitary exostosis in the scapula is relatively rare. We report the case of an osteochondroma of the scapula in a 13-year-old boy. Because of the atypical location with nonspecific shoulder pain, the diagnosis is often made late. CT is necessary to determine the correct position of the osteochondroma. Despite the young age of the patient, surgical excision of the exostosis was performed, because of an arising thoracic pressure pain. The outcome was good, the patient noticed disappearance of previous painful symptoms, and a normal profile of the scapula was gained.
Stretching site resources in cloud computing

International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: A stretchy site mechanism is to solve the allocation of resources problem of computation capacity in the environment of cloud computing is proposed here. In this paper, we investigate the benefits that organizations can reap by using “Cloud Computing providers to augment the computing capacity of their local infrastructure. We have implemented a resource manager, built on the Nimbus toolkit to dynamically and securely extend existing physical clusters into the cloud.. Requests for resources are submitted to the organisation's cluster, but additional Resources s are instantiated in the remote provider and added to the local cluster when there are insufficient resources to serve the users' requests.

Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2015.44012
Abstract: This study explored the perception of Lebanese public school leaders pertaining to character education, and their expected role within its development and effective implementation. The sample included 153 randomly selected public school principals from all the Lebanese districts (Mouhafazat). The purpose is to provide a general overview of their understanding, expectations, their knowledge of character education prescribed in the Lebanese curriculum goals, and their opinion as to the principal’s role in addressing character development. The study was quantitative in nature and utilized a survey instrument that consisted of 39 items classified into 12 domains of character. The first domain targeted the knowledge of school principals pertaining to the character development goals within the Lebanese curriculum, besides their perception of school’s educational mission. The other eleven domains were developed based on “The Eleven Principles of Effective Character Education” constructed by the character education partnership organization (CEP, 2014). SPSS 18.0 for windows was employed to calculate the mean and the standard deviation of responses in order to determine the perceptions of the Lebanese public school leaders related to character education. Findings suggested that Lebanese public school principals were generally not fully aware of the character goals outlined in the Lebanese curriculum and the school’s educational mission concerning building students’ character. Their perception on effective character education unmatched a wide scope of the eleven principles of character education. The study recommends a reform of character education in the Lebanese public schools involving the school principals as leaders of change.

Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2016.54009
Abstract: Cyberbullying has become prevalent in schools with the increased spread and usage of technology. The purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which teachers in Lebanon were aware of the concept of cyber bullying; as well as to investigate their beliefs of the best interventional preventional strategies to combat this phenomenon. The study surveyed 149 public school teachers from the different governorates in Lebanon. A survey consisting of 40 items was developed to address teachers’ perception of cyberbullying, around 4 areas: 1) the impact of cyberbullying on students, 2) the necessary interventional strategies for cyberbullying inside the school, 3) the suitable interventional strategies for cyberbullying outside the school, and 4) the possible preventional strategies for a cyberbullying program. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21.0 for windows. Results indicated that school teachers recognized the gross negative impacts of cyberbullying on students. While teachers suggested anit-cyberbullying inter-ventional strategies inside the school, they were less hesitant to suggest strategies to confront cyberbullying when students were away from school. They were also indeterminate concerning preventional strategies of this phenomenon. Teachers’ perceptions highlight the importance of their active role and the importance of building students character as two major keys for counteracting cyberbullying and designing an efficient anti-cyberbullying program.
Lebanese Public Schools: 20th or 21st Century Schools? An Investigation into Teachers’ Instructional Practices  [PDF]
Norma Ghamrawi, Najah A. R. Ghamrawi, Tarek Shal
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2017.61001
Abstract: This study investigated the offerings of Lebanese public schools against requirements of 21st century skills through the lenses of teachers. A survey that captures the features of the 21st century schools was adapted from Hixson, Ravitz & Whisman (2012) and was administered to 667 middle and secondary schoolteachers in 68 public schools in Beirut and Mount Lebanon. The survey addressed 8 teaching practices that are recognized in the literature as the basic 21st century skills: critical thinking skills, collaboration skills, communication skills, creativity and innovation skills, self-direction skills, global connections skills, local connections skills, and technology skills. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21.0 for windows. Results indicated that a huge gap existed between how schools function as opposed to how they are supposed to do so, in light of the 21st century demands. Lebanese public schools have not yet moved to the 21st century and are quite far from doing so. Recommendations for policy and practice are provided.

Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2018.71003
This study investigated the perceptions of students regarding the concept of student leadership within the Lebanese school context. The study surveyed 410 high school students from 4 public schools in Beirut, Lebanon. Data was collected via a survey consisting of 20 items developed and adapted from the LPI survey of Kouzes & Posner (2014). It addresses students’ perception of leadership around 5 areas: 1) modeling the way; 2) inspiring a shared vision; 3) challenging the process; 4) enabling others to act; and 5) encouraging the heart. In addition, a focus group interview was conducted with 8 students, two from each surveyed school. The interview focused on collecting deep empathetic qualitative data about how the realization of student leadership in their schools would impact on them. Quantitative data was analyzed using SPSS 21.0 for windows, while qualitative data was analyzed thematically. Results indicated that students recognized strengths and weaknesses of student leadership and that if well established, students would be more inclined to learn in their schools.
