Two Cases of Different Types of Porokeratosis: Improvement with Acitretin Treatment
Mine G?kdemir,Aysun ?ikar Aktürk,Kür?at Y?ld?z,Rebiay Kran
Turkderm , 2011,
Abstract: There are five different types in the group of porokeratosis which is one of the keratinization disorders: disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis, punctate porokeratosis, porokeratosis palmaris et plantaris disseminata, linear porokeratosis and porokeratosis of Mibelli (PM). PM is classic and the most common type that can be seen anywhere on the body skin. Disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis is another type of porokeratosis which is characterized by widespread, bilateral and symmetric eruptions seen on sun-exposed areas. Although they are asemptomatic, treatment is recommended because of the possibility of developing skin malignancies. However, none of the current treatment approaches is fully effective. Here, we report two male patients diagnosed with PM and disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis who demonstrated improvement with acitretin treatment.
Coexistence of Kaposi's sarcoma and rheumatoid arthritis
Evren Odyakmaz Demirsoy,Rebiay Kran,Ay?e Cefle,Mine G?kdemir
Turkderm , 2012,
Abstract: Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) which is a neoplastic disease has many different clinical forms with the same histopathological features. KS may associate with many rheumatic diseases due to intensive immunosuppressive therapy used in the treatment. In this study, we present two patients with KS who also had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) to highlight the coexistence of both diseases. KS developed before the immunosuppressive treatment in one of the cases and during immunosuppressive treatment in the other. Unlike in previously reported studies, in our case, KS occurred before the immunosuppressive treatment was started. Therefore, the immunosuppressive treatment cannot be responsible for the coexistence of KS and RA in our first case.
Le statut du narrateur dans Au Chateau d’Argol
Ay?e (Eziler) Kran
Synergies Turquie , 2008,
Abstract: : Dans ce travail, le statut et la position du narrateur non-représenté sont étudiés en fonction du récit et du discours. L’énonciation fictive, l’emploi du pronom “on” et la subjectivité apparente du narrateur créent le dialogisme dans le roman. Bien qu’il soit une voix narrative, le narrateur rivalise avec ses personnages comme s’il désirait imposer son existence dans le texte.
Moral behavior and pro-social behaviors: Does art education create a difference?
Necla Acun Kap?kran
International Journal of Human Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether art education creates a difference on moral behavior and to determine college students’ moral behaviors through their perceptions of their parents’ pro-social behaviors. The subjects of this study consist of 202 college students (Female: 125, Male: 77). Moral behavior was measured by using the “Scale of Evaluating Moral Behavior”, which was developed by Hogan (1973) and Blasi (1980). In order to measure pro-social behaviors, the “Scale of Child and Family” was used. This instrument was developed by Lennon and Others in 1987. The results showed that art education did not create a difference on moral behavior. Moral behavior was found to be significantly related with fathers’ pro-social behaviors and the personal moral character subscale of Scale of Evaluating Moral Behavior was significantly predicted to the subgroups of mothers’ understanding of emotions and fathers’ need of helping. These results were discussed in relation with the literature on moral behavior and the development of pro-social behaviors.

Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: We study cohomology for $p$-local finite groups with non-constant coefficient systems. In particular we show that under certain restrictions there exists a cohomology transfer map in this context, and deduce the standard consequences.
Bank Lending, Inflation, and China's Stock Market (2004–2010)
Richard C. K. Burdekin,Ran Tao
Economics Research International , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/652983
Abstract: The 2009 surge in bank lending in China was accompanied by allegations of substantial funds being funneled into the nation's stock and property markets. This paper uses 2004–2010 People's Bank survey data to examine the possible linkages between banking activity and the stock market as well as the associated inflation risks. In general, stock market strength in China seems to be accompanied by rising inflationary concerns, increased bank lending activity, and reduced banker confidence that stable conditions will be maintained. This suggests that the Shanghai market could serve as a useful indicator variable for Chinese monetary policy.
Dissolution kinetics of ulexite prepared under different calcination temperatures
Demirk?ran, N.;Künkül, A.;
Brazilian Journal of Chemical Engineering , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-66322008000400012
Abstract: ulexite is one of the boron minerals used as a raw material in the production of boron compounds. it contains a substantial amount of hydration water. using calcination methods, the b2o3 grade of ulexite can be increased. in this study, the effect of calcination temperature on dissolution kinetics of ulexite in ammonium chloride solutions was investigated in a batch reactor employing the parameters of concentration, solid-to-liquid ratio and reaction temperature. it was found that the dissolution rate increased with increasing concentration and reaction temperature and with decreasing solid-to-liquid ratio. the highest dissolution rate was obtained with the sample calcined at 413 k. it was determined that the dissolution rate fit to the second-order pseudo-homogeneous model. the activation energy of this dissolution process was found to be 64.3 kj/mol.
China s State-Owned Banks Lending Practices, 1994-2005: Empirical Tests and Policy Implications
Richard C. K. Burdekin and Ran Tao
The Open Economics Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.2174/1874919400801010014]
Abstract: More than half of the assets in China s banking system are accounted for by four huge state-owned commercial banks. This paper examines the changing factors influencing these banks lending behavior over the post-1994 period on a province-by-province basis. Determinants include the concentration of state-owned enterprises, the level of provincial prosperity, deposit levels, and macroeconomic control variables. We confirm a downward trend in the banks loan-todeposit ratio combined with some (mixed) evidence of more lending to richer provinces over time. SOE lending remained important for at least one of the four banks.
Bank Lending, Inflation, and China's Stock Market (2004–2010)

Abstract: The 2009 surge in bank lending in China was accompanied by allegations of substantial funds being funneled into the nation's stock and property markets. This paper uses 2004–2010 People's Bank survey data to examine the possible linkages between banking activity and the stock market as well as the associated inflation risks. In general, stock market strength in China seems to be accompanied by rising inflationary concerns, increased bank lending activity, and reduced banker confidence that stable conditions will be maintained. This suggests that the Shanghai market could serve as a useful indicator variable for Chinese monetary policy. 1. Introduction The bad loan problems of China’s large state-owned commercial banks (SOCBs) have been well documented, as have the successive capital infusions and balance sheet cleanups that allowed Bank of China (BOC), Bank of Communications (BOCOM), China Construction Bank (CCB), and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) to go public in 2005-2006, followed by Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) in 2010. Reports of rising bank profitability have been accompanied by allegations that substantial amounts of the funds lent were being used not in financing real economic activity but in speculation in the nation’s stock and property markets, however. Such claims came to a head in 2009 with a surge in bank lending prompted by Chinese government efforts to support the economy during the global financial crisis. Bank loan issuance in the first half of 2009 alone totaled RMB 7.37 trillion, exceeding the full-year total from 2008. This was accompanied by a 60% rise in the Shanghai stock market over the first six months of 2009, with many observers pointing to large sums being “diverted into shares and property” [1]. Wei Jianing, Deputy Minister of State Council Research Center’s macroeconomics department, estimated that about 20% of total bank credit flowed into the stock market in the early months of 2009.1 Many business owners simply transferred funds borrowed under the government’s easy money policy to an account with another bank, from which they could enter the stock market away from the scrutiny of the original lender.2 Full-year lending in 2009 totaled RMB 9.6 trillion, representing nearly half of that year’s GDP. Although the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) released reports from some regions that two to three percent of funds were misappropriated [2], there are, of course, no official time series documenting just how much money was actually illegally channeled into the stock market. There are, however,
DART: Dropouts meet Multiple Additive Regression Trees
K. V. Rashmi,Ran Gilad-Bachrach
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Multiple Additive Regression Trees (MART), an ensemble model of boosted regression trees, is known to deliver high prediction accuracy for diverse tasks, and it is widely used in practice. However, it suffers an issue which we call over-specialization, wherein trees added at later iterations tend to impact the prediction of only a few instances, and make negligible contribution towards the remaining instances. This negatively affects the performance of the model on unseen data, and also makes the model over-sensitive to the contributions of the few, initially added tress. We show that the commonly used tool to address this issue, that of shrinkage, alleviates the problem only to a certain extent and the fundamental issue of over-specialization still remains. In this work, we explore a different approach to address the problem that of employing dropouts, a tool that has been recently proposed in the context of learning deep neural networks. We propose a novel way of employing dropouts in MART, resulting in the DART algorithm. We evaluate DART on ranking, regression and classification tasks, using large scale, publicly available datasets, and show that DART outperforms MART in each of the tasks, with a significant margin. We also show that DART overcomes the issue of over-specialization to a considerable extent.
