Daring to Dare—Theoretical Experiment for Pedagogical Practices and Body-Brain-Embedded Subject  [PDF]
Edyta Just
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.72028
Abstract: This article discusses and experiments with a psychological constructionist account of the brain basis of emotion—the conceptual act model (Lindquist et al., 2012; Barrett et al., 2014) and the Deleuzian and Guattarian (1987; 2009) philosophical accounts of affect, concept and stratum. Why those two? The conceptual act model theorizes process of meaning making of external and internal sensations including experience of emotions. Deleuze and Guattari, with their accounts, reflect on various patterns of making meaning comprising those that lead to self-/criticism and creativity. Since it is crucial to think about teaching practices that support students in daring to challenge, problematize and generate new meaning of experienced sensations, theories that address meaning making processes are of particular relevance. This article shows that those theories alone and once exposed to an experiment may possibly inspire pedagogical undertakings that aim to create self-/critically-creative abilities among students, but also add to the ways of conceptualizing subject, body, mind and brain.
Daring the Meaning, or Cyberspace that Matters. Criticism-Creativity and Online Education  [PDF]
Edyta Just
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.913147
Abstract: This paper focuses on online education and generic competences such as criticism and creativity. It brings to the fore theories that address processes of meaning making (i.e., a psychological constructionist account of the brain basis of emotion-the conceptual act model (Lindquist et al., 2012; Barrett et al., 2014) and reflect on various patterns of meaning making comprising those that lead to criticism and creativity (i.e., the Deleuzian and Guattarian (1987; 2009) philosophical accounts of affect, concept and stratum) to inspire pedagogical practices that aim to create critically-creative abilities among students. Concomitantly, it seeks to reflect on how such pedagogical undertakings can be actualized in online education and on the possibilities online environment offers to promote criticism and creativity among graduates. By posing questions related to teaching methods, learning activities, software and hardware, and their combinations in online education, and by addressing and problematizing concepts and phenomena of immersion and DFI-digital facial image, I will make an effort to not only highlight, what I call, the promises of cyberspace, but also ponder on how the aforementioned pedagogical practices can be actualized online.
A detailed self-consistent vertical Milky Way disc model
Just A.,Golubov O.,Gao S.
EPJ Web of Conferences , 2012, DOI: 10.1051/epjconf/20121910007
Abstract: We present a self-consistent vertical disc model of thin and thick disc in the solar vicinity. The model is optimized to fit the local kinematics of main sequence stars by varying the star formation history and the dynamical heating function. The star formation history and the dynamical heating function are not uniquely determined by the local kinematics alone. For four different pairs of input functions we calculate star count predictions at high galactic latitude as a function of colour. The comparison with North Galactic Pole data of SDSS/SEGUE leads to significant constraints of the local star formation history.
Development cooperation for health: reviewing a dynamic concept in a complex global aid environment
Peter S Hill, Rebecca Dodd, Scott Brown, Just Haffeld
Globalization and Health , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1744-8603-8-5
Abstract: In late November 2011 global stakeholders met in Busan, South Korea for the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, planning the next iteration in the evolution of aid effectiveness. The Aid Effectiveness Agenda has roots that extend well before the 2005 declaration of the Paris Principles, with their emphasis on ownership, alignment, harmonisation, managing for results and mutual accountability [1]. For health, the 1978 Alma-Ata declaration, which focussed international attention and resources on Primary Health Care, also marked a more fundamental paradigm shift-establishing the notion of international responsibility for health, the idea that rich countries should help poorer ones to achieve health goals [2].With international responsibility came increasing formalisation of arrangements for development assistance and-in parallel with the growth of the broader aid industry-an increasing number of development partners active in the health sector. Within two decades there were complaints of an "unruly mélange" of development initiatives providing support to health [3]. Indeed, calls for better coordination of aid are almost as common as calls for more aid, and have remained a central theme of every subsequent international health initiative since Primary Health Care.This review examines how the concept of aid coordination, and its application to health systems, has evolved over the last two decades, and provides a base from which to consider further change. In this time international health has been re-shaped by globalisation, confronted by transitions in health and disease and has coped with unanticipated and resurgent epidemics. The development landscape has also changed substantially, with new resources, new players and new relationships, in turn leading to new forms of global health governance [4]. In this dynamic and shifting environment one idea has retained traction: that aid needs to be better managed and co-ordinated. Though, as we describe below, the ways

Medicina Intensiva , 2008,
Abstract: Objetivo. Comparar la morbilidad y la mortalidad de los pacientes de cirugía cardíaca de acuerdo a la edad inferior o superior a 75 a os. Dise o. Estudio descriptivo retrospectivo. Pacientes. Dos mil cuatrocientos setenta pacientes consecutivos ingresados en el postoperatorio inmediato tras cirugía cardíaca en nuestra Unidad de Medicina Intensiva entre noviembre de 2000 y diciembre de 2005. De ellos, 1.983 eran menores de 75 a os y 497 mayores de 75 a os. Se han incluido todos los pacientes con cirugía, tanto programada como urgente y emergente. Principales variables de interés. Factores de riesgo cardiovascular (diabetes mellitus, hipertensión arterial y dislipidemia), European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE) y EuroSCORE logístico, estancia, mortalidad, complicaciones durante la estancia en la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos (UCI). Resultados. La mortalidad hospitalaria de los pacientes mayores de 74 a os fue significativamente superior (9,2% frente a 4,3%, p < 0,05). La morbilidad de los pacientes mayores de 74 también fue superior (EuroSCORE 8,2 ± 2,7 frente a 4,9 ± 3,3, p < 0,001). Tanto la estancia en la UCI como la estancia hospitalaria fueron significativamente superiores en los pacientes mayores de 74 a os. Conclusiones. En nuestra serie tanto la morbilidad como la mortalidad de los mayores de 74 es superior, lo que conlleva peores resultados en la cirugía cardíaca de estos pacientes. Objective. To compare morbidity and mortality of cardiac surgery patients according to age below or above 75 years. Design. Descriptive retrospective study. Patients. A total of 2,470 consecutive patients admitted to our Intensive Medicine Unit between November 2000 and December 2005 who were in the immediate postoperative period after cardiac surgery. Of these patients, 1,983 were younger than 75 years and 497 were older than 75 years. Main variables of interest. Cardiovascular risk factors (diabetes mellitus, arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia), EuroSCORE (European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation) and logistic EuroSCORE, length of stay, mortality, complications during Intensive Care Unit (ICU) stay. Results. In-hospital mortality of patients older than 74 years was significantly higher (9.2% versus 4.2%, p < 0.05). The morbidity of patients over 74 years of age was also significantly higher (EuroSCORE 8.2 ± 2.7 versus 4.9 ± 3.3, p < 0.001). Both ICU stay and hospital stay were significantly higher in those over 74 years of age. Conclusions. In our series both morbidity and mortality were higher in those older than 74 years
Chocolate Milk Consequences: A Pilot Study Evaluating the Consequences of Banning Chocolate Milk in School Cafeterias
Andrew S. Hanks, David R. Just, Brian Wansink
PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0091022
Abstract: Objectives Currently, 68.3% of the milk available in schools is flavored, with chocolate being the most popular (61.6% of all milk). If chocolate milk is removed from a school cafeteria, what will happen to overall milk selection and consumption? Methods In a before-after study in 11 Oregon elementary schools, flavored milk–which will be referred to as chocolate milk–was banned from the cafeteria. Milk sales, school enrollment, and data for daily participation in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) were compared year to date. Results Total daily milk sales declined by 9.9% (p<0.01). Although white milk increased by 161.2 cartons per day (p<0.001), 29.4% of this milk was thrown away. Eliminating chocolate milk was also associated with 6.8% fewer students eating school lunches, and although other factors were also involved, this is consistent with the notion of psychological reactance. Conclusions Removing chocolate milk from school cafeterias may reduce calorie and sugar consumption, but it may also lead students to take less milk overall, drink less (waste more) of the white milk they do take, and no longer purchase school lunch. Food service managers need to carefully weigh the costs and benefits of eliminating chocolate milk and should consider alternative options that make white milk more convenient, attractive, and normal to choose.

Fortschritte der Kardiologie: Ethische und konomische Aspekte
Just H
Journal für Kardiologie , 2010,
Abstract: Fortschritte der naturwissenschaftlich- technischen Medizin, Entwicklung des Rechts- und Sozialstaats sowie die konomisierung der Medizin haben zu einer Krise der Medizin geführt. Am Beispiel der Kardiologie werden Unsicherheit und Gef hrdung des rztlichen Auftrags und der Verlust an Unmittelbarkeit in der Arzt-Patienten-Beziehung deutlich. Die Erfolge in Diagnostik und Therapie sind nicht nur teuer. Wir vergessen darüber auch die geisteswissenschaftlich-theologischen Wurzeln der Medizin. An den Grenzen des Lebens verstummt das Gewissen. Wie soll der moderne Arzt die den Kranken bedr ngende Frage nach dem Sinn beantworten? Anspruchsdenken und falsch verstandene Autonomie stellen den Arzt vor schwierige Entscheidungen. Schlie lich gef hrdet die zunehmende Dominanz wirtschaftlicher Aspekte Integrit t und Unabh ngigkeit rztlicher Entscheidungen. Eine Rückbesinnung auf die über 2000-j hrige Entstehungsgeschichte der abendl ndischen Medizin aus Antike, Christentum und Aufkl rung für dringlich geboten.
Unconventional Allies Reunited: Liberal Hawks and Neoconservatives at the Turn of the Century
Just, Peter
COPAS : Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies , 2010,
Abstract: The paper argues that liberal hawks and neoconservatives formed an at first glance unconventional alliance during several international conflicts after the end of the Cold War. An analysis of the respective histories of the two schools of thought shows though that the cooperation is actually rooted in common origins and various similarities in their ideologies.
Globally Coupled Maps: Almost Analytical Treatment of Phase Transitions
Wolfram Just
Physics , 1994,
Abstract: Bifurcations in a system of coupled maps are investigated. Using symbolic dynamics it is proven that for coupled shift maps the well known space--time--mixing attractor becomes unstable at a critical coupling strength in favour of a synchronized state. For coupled non--hyperbolic maps analytical and numerical evidence is given that arbitrary small coupling changes the dynamical behaviour. The anomalous dependence of fluctuations on the system size is attributed to these bifurcations.
