Identidade, status e institui??es internacionais: o caso do Brasil, da índia e do tratado de n?o prolifera??o
Stuenkel, Oliver;
Contexto Internacional , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-85292010000200008
Abstract: in order to understand how we can explain rising powers' behavior towards international institutions, this article analyzes the case of brazil, india and the non-proliferation treaty (npt) in more depth and shows that neither realists nor liberal institutionalists can fully explain both countries' behavior. in the article it is argued that status and identity, both largely overlooked by realism and liberalism, play a key role. both brazil and india share a fundamental conviction that they are 'great powers' (or on their way to becoming one), and their decision to integrate into a particular institution depends on this institutions' ability to confer status on the emerging powers that is compatible with the rising powers' identity. as the example of the npt shows, status and identity override other, more commonly accepted determinants for states' behavior such as security concerns.
Identity and the concept of the West: the case of Brazil and India
Stuenkel, Oliver;
Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-73292011000100011
Abstract: this study aims to provide insights about how brazil and india view and relate to the concept of the west, and how this affects their identity and foreign policy. both countries' notions about the west are the subject of lively domestic discussion both in academia and the media, reflecting the struggle these countries find themselves in to define their identity as they rise. i argue that the concept of the west serves, in both brazil and india, as a crucial concept to articulate their own identity-by a complex combination of criticizing, distancing itself from, or attempting to emulate the west.

Renewing Oncological Hyperthermia—Oncothermia  [PDF]
Oliver Szasz
Open Journal of Biophysics (OJBIPHY) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojbiphy.2013.34030

Hyperthermia was the very first oncotherapy in human medicine, but its applicability in modern oncology was dubious. The discovery of electromagnetism gave new hope a century ago, however, until up to now, it has been suffering from lack of wide acceptance. Oncological hyperthermia suffers from multiple unsolved medical and technical problems. The accurate selection of malignant tissue and its proper heating in depth are real challenges together with the control and repeatability of the treatments. However, the center of the problems is not technical: the living system tries to keep its homeostatic equilibrium and creates active feedback mechanisms to eliminate or at least correct the constrain heating in depth. The proper reaction on the “gage of battle” has to involve the physiology, handle it complexly together with bioelectromagnetism and update connected technology. The solution has to be the integration of the natural bio-effects into the technological constrains, acting in synergy with the physiological feedback mechanisms, and without forcing effects out of the homeostatic control. The solution lies in strict selection and adequate action in nanoscopic range, without exciting the robust transport-mechanisms to operate against the energy delivery to the tumor. Together with the local

Innovation Clusters and Public Policy—The Case of a Research-Driven Cluster in Germany  [PDF]
Oliver Mauroner
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2015.512072
Abstract: Regional innovation clusters are spatial concentrations of interconnected firms, suppliers, service providers, state institutions, and research organisation in a particular field of innovation. The stimulation and support of clusters are important agendas for governments and other public actors. Cluster development initiatives are actually an important direction in economic policy, building on earlier efforts in macroeconomic stabilization, privatisation, and market opening, and reducing the costs of doing business. The purpose of this paper is to look on a specific type of innovative clusters in Germany, which are supported by the Fraunhofer Society, one of the leading, partly public-funded organisations for application-oriented research in Europe. Based on an overview over current issues in cluster literature—beginning with Porter 1990 to the point of actual global-value-chain-approach and the concept of knowledge hubs—the particular cluster approach of the German Fraunhofer Society is classified with regard to the academic literature. Fraunhofer clusters are, in the first instance, project clusters compared to simple communication networks. The case study presented in this paper is a valid example for a long-term and well-established industry cluster, which actually opens out in a project-oriented cluster approach. Finally, it is possible to draw practical implications for policy makers and industry regarding the support of regional innovation clusters.
Bioelectromagnetic Paradigm of Cancer Treatment—Modulated Electro-Hyperthermia (mEHT)  [PDF]
Oliver Szasz
Open Journal of Biophysics (OJBIPHY) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojbiphy.2019.92008

One of the most frequently applied bioelectromagnetic effects is the deep heating of the living species with EMF energy. Despite its long history, hyperthermia is a rarely applied oncotherapy. The reason is its controversial results and complicated control. One of the solutions is concentrating the electromagnetic energy nanoscopically on the parts of the malignant cells instead of heating up the complete tumor-mass. This approach is a kind of non-uniform energy absorption, providing energy liberation only in the selected regions. The energy-absorption of the malignant cells targets the membranes and creates a situation far from thermal equilibrium. The selection of the malignant cells is based on their decided differences from their healthy counterparts. The distinguishing parameters are the electromagnetic properties of the components of the malignant tissue which are the physiologic differences between the malignant cells and their healthy counterparts. The targets realize nano-range heating, using natural nanoclusters on the cell-membrane without artificially implementing them. This energy absorption generates consequent reactions, like programmed cell-death (apoptosis) continued by immunogenic cell-death involving extended immune reactions.?

The applied radiofrequency current is amplitude modulated by time-fractal modulation pattern. The accurately matched impedance realizes the self-selective mechanisms which are promoted by stochastic resonances. This complex method is a new kind of hyperthermia, named mEHT. Our objective is to analyze the problems of the selective, non-equilibrium energy absorption, and present a solution by the electromagnetic mechanisms for an effective and controllable hyperthermia in oncology.

Atheism and Humanism in a Globalized World: The Igbo Experience  [PDF]
Chizaram Onyekwere, Oliver Uche
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2013.31A015

Obnoxious labels are derogatory terms which speak extensively on the ignorant dispositions of scholars who either rush into faulty conclusions, or have prior decisions to promote class distinction through the uncomplimentary colours they paint of what others hold as divine, spiritual, and transcendental. For such derogatory terms to gain wide audience in a globalized age explain the frame of mind of discordant voices which have been based on arm-chair scholarship. The thrust of this article therefore, is to use Igbo experience to explore the problems of atheism and humanism in a globalized world. The exploratory research will help adopt cultural centred approach in analyzing the dichotomy between the various philosophical view points on God, spirits and man’s religious belief system in Igbo land in particular and Africa in general. It is hoped that the analyses of the challenges posed by atheism and humanism in a globalized world will balance ideas, views, attitudes and behaviour that will reposition Igbo religious beliefs, values and practices in line with the proposed theistic humanism associated with Igbo culture in particular and African culture in general. This will breach the persisted conflict between the sacred and the secular pointing to a dynamic and progressive Igbo culture.

Social Media in Science Marketing-Framework, Instruments, and Strategies. Cases from German Research Institutes  [PDF]
Oliver Mauroner, Dorit Fauck
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2014.23030
Abstract: Social media in science marketing at research institutions is still in its early stages. Based on studies on social media use at the German research institute Fraunhofer Society in 2010 and 2014, this article illustrates the progress made in the last four years. Even though the changes are significant, it is obvious that there is still a skeptical attitude towards social media and a lack of understanding of its value. The results of the studies show that many research institutes behave conservatively with regard to the variety of social media channels. Reservations can be seen in particular at the science and management levels. First and foremost, research institutions can benefit from social media usage by extending their channels of communication for marketing purposes and reaching their target audiences more effectively. Secondly, social media can also be used to receive information for market research, as social media is characterized by two-way communication. Therefore, it is important to implement a well thought-out social media strategy.
