Ethnophilosophy and Public Morality in an African Tribe  [PDF]
Uche A. Dike
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2015.53020
Abstract: The paper is a field research work delving into the ethnophilosophy of Ogba religion. Its focal point is on the people’ worldview, as it pertains to life, public morality, value and Adamic sins in Ogba Land Rivers State, Nigeria. It posits that the natural or physical world is an extension of the supernatural or the spiritual and must be understood in that sense if a valid explanation about Ogba people’ vision of life must be sufficiently compatible with their cosmology. In the area of public morality, the ethnophilosophy of Ogba people is holistic and integrated. Thus, anti social behaviours or abominations known as Adamic sins in this paper are viewed as disruptive of public order and morality. In this wise the people’s weltanschauung provided value essence as a foundation for existence. Hence, inviolable sanctity of human life and good moral character ranked to be the highest value in Ogba Land.

Materials Research , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-14392001000100007
Abstract: a series of polyurethane/pmma simultaneous interpenetrating networks (sins) with various hard segment contents (x) in the polyurethane phase (x = 15.5 to 36.5% in polyurethane) and wide range of polyurethane (pu) to polyacrylate (pa) ratio (pu/pa = 20:80 to 80:20) were prepared, and the damping and mechanical properties of these materials were studied. the damping of polyurethane soft phase was increased and shifted to lower temperature with increased content of pa vitreous phase. the mechanical properties were improved with increasing pa contents. the results show that pa and the polyurethane hard segment interaction play a special role in chain interpenetration density and its magnitude is revealed by the decreased dispersed domain size observed by scanning electron microscopy (sem) and increased loss area as measured by dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (dmta). when the weight ratio of pu/pa was 40:60, the resulting sin materials possessed better damping properties, independent of x concentration.

Towards a better understanding of forgiveness of sins in the first commentaries on the Heidelberg Catechism
Pieter C. Potgieter
In die Skriflig , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ ids.v47i2.648
Abstract: With regard to the issue of the forgiveness of sins in the Heidelberg Catechism, this paper shows that not only was there agreement and the same basic approach to issues of faith to be found in the commentaries of Ursinus and Olevianus, but also a valuable complementing of each other’s work. The influence of Calvin, with whom both of them have studied in Geneva, is obvious in their doctrinal approach. Whereas Ursinus tended more towards an academic correctness in his Explicationum Catecheticarum, Olevianus added a pastoral and spiritual dimension in his Vester Grundt. Although some theologians questioned the role of Olevianus in the compilation of the Heidelberg Catechism, recent research adequately shows that both of them were indeed involved, and were well-endowed with the necessary background for providing a further exposition of the Catechism. Both of them emphasise the unquestionable and sole merit of Jesus Christ, through his vicarious death on the cross, as the only ground for God’s gracious forgiveness of the sinner. It is God’s free gift, appropriated through faith and trust in the merit of Christ.
Virtudes y pecados políticos (Italia, siglos XIII-XV)
Guglielmi,Nilda;
Temas medievales , 2005,
Abstract: on ground of earlier research, the author analyzes political virtues and sins which can be recognized in the italian communes. nilda guglielmi concludes that law was the exogenous factor which conferred coherence to the community, while virtue was an endogenous ethical component which achieved harmony among the citizens. with examples at hand the author illustrates different ways in which these ideals become apparent in actions carried out by certain communal governments.

Abstract: rgically induced necrotizing scleritis after primary pterygium surgery with conjunctival autograft Case report (2508) Total Article Views Authors: Yamazoe K, Shimazaki-Den S, Otaka I, Hotta K, Shimazaki J Published Date November 2011 Volume 2011:5 Pages 1609 - 1611 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OPTH.S24885 Katsuya Yamazoe1,2, Seika Shimazaki-Den1, Isao Otaka3, Kazuki Hotta2, Jun Shimazaki1,4 1Department of Ophthalmology, Tokyo Dental College, Ichikawa, 2Department of Ophthalmology, Kameda Medical Center, Kamogawa, 3Yokohama Sotetsu Building Eye Center, Yokohama, 4Department of Ophthalmology, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan Background: Although pterygium excision with conjunctival autograft is a widely performed surgical procedure, surgically induced necrotizing scleritis (SINS) following such surgery is extremely rare. Methods: A 68-year-old man underwent nasal pterygium excision with conjunctival autograft uneventfully. On postoperative day 17, the conjunctival graft was avascular, with epithelial defect. Although topical steroid and antibacterial treatments were continued, the graft and sclera melted, with the ischemic sclera showing gradual thinning. The thinning area spread to the adjoining cornea, and active inflammation with epithelial defect was observed adjacent to the site of thinning. Results: Systemic and microbiological examination was noncontributory. The patient was suspected of having SINS, and administration of oral prednisolone was started. Although the necrotic area was reduced temporarily, medication was discontinued due to nausea, and the area of thinning increased. Conjunctival flap surgery was later performed, and the graft was well accepted. Conclusions: SINS must be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with scleritis following pterygium surgery, especially if radiation or mitomycin C has not been used.
Trénink hněvu: Smrtelny h ích v temperamentní profesi Coaching anger: A deadly sin in a lively profession

Acta Universitatis Palackianae Olomucensis : Gymnica , 2006,
Abstract: Podle k es anské tradice je hněv jedním ze "sedmi smrtelnych h ích ". Ve vychodním nábo enském my lení je hněv pova ován za jedovaty a návykovy. Tyto pohledy poukazují na problémovou povahu hněvu. Jiní se v ak domnívají, e hněv m e nabyvat vhodného vyrazu a pozitivní funkce. Vzhledem k tomu, e hněv se ve sportu projevuje asto, je d le ité vyhodnotit vyznam hněvu také v této oblasti lidského ivota. Zvlá tě asto projevují hněv trené i. S ohledem na tuto skute nost se v tomto p íspěvku zamě uji na povahu hněvu a jeho roli v profesi trenéra. Je na roli, kterou trenér zastává, něco, co by trenér m poskytovalo zvlá tní svobodu ve vyjad ování hněvu? "Trénink hněvu" se nezabyvá vyhradně projevy hněvu trenér , ale také praktickymi kroky vedoucími k ú innému a p imě enému ovládání této slo ité emoce. According to Christian tradition, anger comprises one of the "seven deadly sins". In Eastern religious thought anger is held to be poisonous and addictive. These views point to the problematic nature of anger. Some hold, however, that anger can have an appropriate expression and a positive function. Since anger is often vented in sport, it is important to assess the significance of anger in this area of life. Coaches, in particular, frequently display anger. Given this fact, in this paper I focus on the nature of anger and its role in the coaching profession. Is there something distinctive about the role of the coach such that coaches should be granted special leeway in the expression of anger? "Coaching anger" refers not merely to the manifestation of coaches’ anger, but also to practical steps towards effective and appropriate dealing with this complex emotion.

Abstract: castor oil was modified by transesterification with pentaerithritol. in a parallel step, starch was divided into monosaccharide units by glycosylation in order to obtain products with high hydroxyl content. the values of hydroxyl index were measured according to the content of pentaerithritol and starch used in the synthesis. novel simultaneous interpenetrating polymer networks (sins) of polyurethane (pu) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (pmma) in different weight ratios of 100/0, 90/10, 80/20, 70/30, 60/40 and 50/50 were prepared based on polyol-glucosides. the polyurethane network was created by reacting the poliol-glucosides with isophorone diisocyanate maintaining a molar ratio nco/oh = 1. the pmma network was synthesized using benzoyl peroxide as initiator and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as the crosslinker. the sins were characterized in their mechanical properties, such as shore a hardness, tensile strength and elongation at break. thermal stability of sins was measured using thermogravimetric analysis (tga). surface morphology measured using scanning electron microscope (sem) showed two-phase morphology for all the sins. sins based on polyurethane from castor oil modified and poly(methyl methacrylate) show limited compatibility at low concentrations of pmma, but are totally incompatible at higher concentrations of pmma.

Abstract: In order to investigate the navigation capability of SINS/GPS loosely-couple integrated navigation system and the tightly-coupled system under the satellite signal invalidation, this paper established the math model of the loosely-coupled system and the tightly-coupled system based on the Kalman filtering and set up emulators of them on the basis of the analysis of error equation of SINS. The simulation results indicate that the precision of the SINS/GPS tightly-couple integrated navigation is obviously better than the loosely-couple, and the tightly-coupled system can be held and have a better precision than that of single SINS system at the same time even if the number of the visible satellites is less than four or just one caused by the satellite signal invalidation. This shows that tightly-coupled system have a good precision and reliability.
Initial Alignment for SINS based on Low-cost IMU
Jiong Yi,Lei Zhang,Rong Shu,Jianyu Wang
Journal of Computers , 2011, DOI: 10.4304/jcp.6.6.1080-1085
Abstract: The initial alignment is vital to the strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS). In this work, an efficient initial alignment method for SINS based on a six-degree of freedom inertial measurements unit (IMU) is proposed. The three dimensional linear accelerations and angular rates are acquired from a data acquisition board which contains a low-cost IMU. Preprocess the gyro data and modeling the SINS error model for initial alignment. Analysis the observability of this SINS error model and then simplify the model based on the observability. A kalman filter is conducted to estimate the misalignment angle. The results show that the initial alignment method proposed in this paper is advisable for a SINS based on low-cost IMU on a stationary base.
