  1. A Study of kiluguru Syntax with Special Reference to the Transformational History of Sentences with Permuted Subject and Object

    Mkude, DJ
    This thesis is divided into three parts. Part 1 is a general introduction to Kiluguru. It aims at supplying basic information about Kiluguru phonology, morphology and syntax. The layout and terminology is basically the sane as that found in introductory Grammars of other Bantu languages. Part II studies a particular type of sentence, namely, sentences with permuted Subject and Object. After showing that these sentences are remarkably different from Passive Sentences, it is argued that the sentences in question arise from the placement of focal emphasis on the Subject. This is normally expressed by "a pseudo-cleft construction in which" the Subject appears as predicate nominal. It is subsequently argued that sentences with permuted Subject...

  2. A comparative study of pottery from Arabia in the pre-Islamic period 500 BC to AD 600

    Gazdar, MSMY
    No overall comparative study has yet been made of the pottery of the pre-Islamic period from Arabia, and the present thesis is a preliminary attempt in this direction, based primarily on the material excavated at the site of Zubaida, Qasim District. Pottery from other sites in the Eastern and Central Provinces of Saudi Arabia, from North and South Yemen, and from Bahrain has also been studied, some by means of publications only but wherever possible through the actual handling of the material. Pottery from South East Arabia has, for a number of reasons, had to be excluded from the study. The pottery has been classified into 119 Form Types and...

  3. The rise of National Socialism in Westphalia 1920-1933

    Muhlberger, Detlef Willi
    This is a study of the origin and development of National Socialism in a predominantly industrialised province containing both Catholics and Protestants in roughly equal numbers. Following a description of the province of Westphalia, the initial emphasis is placed on providing; the setting in which Nazism operated. Thus the revolution of 1918 and its political consequences are dealt with, as well as the political and economic situation of the nineteen-twenties. The strength of the left-wing parties and of the Centre Party in 'Westphalia is stressed. The emphasis switches to the NSDAP. Its early history is outlined, especially its connection with diverse radical right-wings movement...

  4. Aspects of power and history in the dictator novels by Alejo Carpentier, Augusto Roa Bastos and Gabriel García Márquez

    Navarro, Márcia Hoppe
    The thesis constitutes a study of aspects of power and history in the novels Yo el Supremo by Augusto Roa Bastos, El Recurso del Metodo by Alejo Carpentier and El Otono del Patriarca by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The first part (chapters 1 and 2) presents an analysis of how the idea of power appears in the narrative, by comparing the three works. The second part (chapters 3, 4 and 5) examines the notion of history in the novels, yet each chapter deals mainly with one of the books mentioned. Chapter 1 investigates the relation between the structure of power and patterns of dependency experienced by the countries...

  5. The Neolithic site of Jebel Oraf 2, northern Saudi Arabia: First report of a directly dated site with faunal remains

    Guagnin, M; Shipton, C; Martin, L; Petraglia, M
    The archaeological record of the Arabian Neolithic remains extremely fragmentary. Archaeological sites containing faunal remains of early domesticates are extremely rare and only a few sites yielding these have been excavated in Yemen and along the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. Neolithisation models have therefore had to infer population dynamics and subsistence changes across vast distances. Here we present the first report of a newly discovered Neolithic site in the Jubbah oasis, on the southern edge of the Nefud desert. The site is located on the margin of palaeolake deposits and consists of a large cluster of at least...

  6. Measurement of the ZZ production cross section in proton-proton collisions at s√=8 TeV using the ZZ → ℓ−ℓ+ℓ′−ℓ′+ and ZZ→ℓ−ℓ+νν¯¯¯ decay channels with the ATLAS detector

    Aaboud, M; Aad, G; Abbott, B; Abdallah, J; Abdinov, O; Abeloos, B; Aben, R; AbouZeid, OS; Abraham, NL; Abramowicz, H; Abreu, H; Abreu, R; Abulaiti, Y; Acharya, BS; Adachi, S; Adamczyk, L; Adams, DL; Adelman, J; Adomeit, S; Adye, T; Affolder, AA; Agatonovic-Jovin, T; Aguilar-Saavedra, JA; Ahlen, SP; Ahmadov, F; Aielli, G; Akerstedt, H; Åkesson, TPA; Akimov, AV; Alberghi, GL; Albert, J; Albrand, S; Alconada Verzini, MJ; Aleksa, M; Aleksandrov, IN; Alexa, C; Alexander, G; Alexopoulos, T; Alhroob, M; Ali, B; Aliev, M; Alimonti, G; Alison, J; Alkire, SP; Allbrooke, BMM; Allen, BW; Allport, PP; Aloisio, A; Alonso, A; Alonso, F; Alpigiani, C; Alshehri, AA; Alstaty, M; Alvarez Gonzalez, B; Álvarez Piqueras, D; Alviggi, MG; Amadio, BT; Amako, K; Amaral Coutinho, Y; Amelung, C; Amidei, D; Amor Dos Santos, SP; Amorim, A; Amoroso, S; Amundsen, G; Anastopoulos, C; Ancu, LS; Andari, N; Andeen, T; Anders, CF; Anders, G; Anders, JK; Anderson, KJ; Andreazza, A; Andrei, V; Angelidakis, S; Angelozzi, I; Angerami, A; Anghinolfi, F; Anisenkov, AV; Anjos, N; Annovi, A; Antel, C; Antonelli, M
    A measurement of the ZZ production cross section in the ℓ−ℓ+ℓ′ −ℓ′ + and ℓ−ℓ+νν¯¯¯ channels (ℓ = e, μ) in proton-proton collisions at s√=8TeV at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 collected by the ATLAS experiment in 2012 is presented. The fiducial cross sections for ZZ → ℓ−ℓ+ℓ′ −ℓ′ + and ZZ→ℓ−ℓ+νν¯¯¯ are measured in selected phase-space regions. The total cross section for ZZ events produced with both Z bosons in the mass range 66 to 116 GeV is measured from the combination of the two channels to be...

  7. Measurement of the prompt J/ ψ pair production cross-section in pp collisions at √s=8 TeV with the ATLAS detector

    Aaboud, M; Aad, G; Abbott, B; Abdallah, J; Abdinov, O; Abeloos, B; Aben, R; AbouZeid, OS; Abraham, NL; Abramowicz, H; Abreu, H; Abreu, R; Abulaiti, Y; Acharya, BS; Adachi, S; Adamczyk, L; Adams, DL; Adelman, J; Adomeit, S; Adye, T; Affolder, AA; Agatonovic-Jovin, T; Aguilar-Saavedra, JA; Ahlen, SP; Ahmadov, F; Aielli, G; Akerstedt, H; Åkesson, TPA; Akimov, AV; Alberghi, GL; Albert, J; Albrand, S; Alconada Verzini, MJ; Aleksa, M; Aleksandrov, IN; Alexa, C; Alexander, G; Alexopoulos, T; Alhroob, M; Ali, B; Aliev, M; Alimonti, G; Alison, J; Alkire, SP; Allbrooke, BMM; Allen, BW; Allport, PP; Aloisio, A; Alonso, A; Alonso, F; Alpigiani, C; Alshehri, AA; Alstaty, M; Alvarez Gonzalez, B; Álvarez Piqueras, D; Alviggi, MG; Amadio, BT; Amaral Coutinho, Y; Amelung, C; Amidei, D; Amor Dos Santos, SP; Amorim, A; Amoroso, S; Amundsen, G; Anastopoulos, C; Ancu, LS; Andari, N; Andeen, T; Anders, CF; Anders, G; Anders, JK; Anderson, KJ; Andreazza, A; Andrei, V; Angelidakis, S; Angelozzi, I; Angerami, A; Anghinolfi, F; Anisenkov, AV; Anjos, N; Annovi, A; Antel, C; Antonelli, M; Antonov, A; Antrim, DJ; Anulli, F
    The production of two prompt J/ ψ mesons, each with transverse momenta pT> 8.5 GeV and rapidity |y| < 2.1 , is studied using a sample of proton-proton collisions at s=8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 11.4 fb- 1 collected in 2012 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The differential cross-section, assuming unpolarised J/ ψ production, is measured as a function of the transverse momentum of the lower-pTJ/ ψ meson, di-J/ ψpT and mass, the difference in rapidity between the two J/ ψ mesons, and the azimuthal angle between the two J/ ψ mesons. The fraction of prompt pair...

  8. User characteristics of a smartphone app to reduce alcohol consumption

    Garnett, C; Crane, D; West, R; Michie, S; Brown, J; Winstock, A
    Digital interventions are available to help people reduce their alcohol consumption, but it is not known who uses these interventions and how this treatment-seeking group compares with the general population of drinkers. The study objective was to compare the socio-demographic and drinking characteristics of users of the ‘Drinks Meter’ smartphone app with the general population of drinkers in England and website users of the same intervention. Data were used from the Drinks Meter app and website, and a nationally representative cross-sectional survey in England (Alcohol Toolkit Study). Participants were drinkers aged 16+ in England. Data were collected on participants’ age,...

  9. Delivery is key: lessons learnt from developing splice-switching antisense therapies

    Godfrey, C; Desviat, LR; Smedsrød, B; Piétri-Rouxel, F; Denti, MA; Disterer, P; Lorain, S; Nogales-Gadea, G; Sardone, V; Anwar, R; El Andaloussi, S; Lehto, T; Khoo, B; Brolin, C; van Roon-Mom, WM; Goyenvalle, A; Aartsma-Rus, A; Arechavala-Gomeza, V
    The use of splice-switching antisense therapy is highly promising, with a wealth of pre-clinical data and numerous clinical trials ongoing. Nevertheless, its potential to treat a variety of disorders has yet to be realized. The main obstacle impeding the clinical translation of this approach is the relatively poor delivery of antisense oligonucleotides to target tissues after systemic delivery. We are a group of researchers closely involved in the development of these therapies and would like to communicate our discussions concerning the validity of standard methodologies currently used in their pre-clinical development, the gaps in current knowledge and the pertinent challenges...

  10. Regulatory Stewardship and Intermediation: Lessons from Human Rights Governance

    Pegram, TI
    The regulator-intermediary-target (RIT) framework exposes the potential for intermediaries to provide alternative channels for capture. In this article, I argue that the risk of capture can be mitigated through what I call regulatory stewardship—a novel conception of regulatory management that involves the intermediaries themselves monitoring the performance of one another. I explore regulatory stewardship by examining a new generation of human rights treaty innovation: the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture (OPCAT) and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). These instruments differentially formalize relations among intermediaries. I use their contrasting experiences to identify three factors...

  11. The Educational Impact of Experience Overseas

    Fox, T; Byrne, G; Byrne-Davis, L
    Background: Healthcare professionals are increasingly seeking overseas experience as part of their training. In the UK and Ireland, spending time overseas is becoming increasingly common during the first few years of training, with 10.8 per cent of foundation year 2 (postgraduate year 2) doctors working outside the UK in 2015. Whilst we know that doctors in training are increasingly seeking overseas experience, the reasons behind this are unknown. Many travel with the intention of returning after a period of time. With medical ‘gap years’ becoming common, there is a need to understand the reasons behind this phenomenon and what doctors...

  12. Psychologically Informed Environments for homeless people: resident and staff experiences

    Phipps, C; Seager, M; Murphy, L; Barker, C
    PURPOSE: Many homeless people have significant levels of early adverse experiences and consequent mental health difficulties. This study examines the experiences of residents and staff living and working in a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE), a new model of hostel for homeless people which aims to update and make more flexible the principles of the therapeutic community, thereby meeting the psychological and emotional needs of residents. DESIGN AND APPROACH: Semi-structured interviews were carried out with nine residents, ten staff and five psychotherapists at two PIE hostels in London, UK. The data were analysed using thematic analysis with a phenomenological epistemological approach....

  13. Monitoring Ototoxicity with DPOAEs

    Al-Malky, GMA
    Ototoxicity is damage to the ears following exposure to medications. It is a common yet a preventable cause of hearing and/or balance problems. There are hundreds of drugs and chemicals that can cause hearing loss with the most established ototoxic drugs including aminoglycoside antibiotics and platinum-based chemotherapeutic drugs like cisplatin where high frequency progressive hearing loss develops initially through damage of the outer hair cells of the basal turn of the cochlea then progresses apically to affect frequencies needed for speech and communication. Early detection of damage is key to prevention of further damage and can only be achieved by...

  14. Environmental Adversity and Children's Early Trajectories of Problem Behavior: The Role of Harsh Parental Discipline

    Flouri, E; Midouhas, E
    This study was performed to examine the role of harsh parental discipline in mediating and moderating the effects of environmental adversity (family socioeconomic disadvantage and adverse life events) on emotional and behavioral problems across early-to-middle childhood. The sample included 16,916 children (48% female; 24% non-White) from the U.K.’s Millennium Cohort Study. We analyzed trajectories of conduct, hyperactivity, and emotional problems, measured at ages 3, 5, and 7 years, using growth curve models. Harsh parental discipline was measured at these ages with parent-reported items on the frequency of using the physical and verbal discipline tactics of smacking, shouting at, and “telling...

  15. Salt Templating with Pore Padding: Hierarchical Pore Tailoring towards Functionalised Porous Carbons.

    Kumar, KV; Gadipelli, S; Preuss, K; Porwal, H; Zhao, T; Guo, ZX; Titirici, MM
    We propose a new synthetic route towards nanoporous functional carbon materials based on salt templating with pore-padding approach (STPP). STPP relies on the use of a pore-padding agent that undergoes an initial polymerisation/ condensation process prior to the formation of a solid carbon framework. The pore-padding agent allows tailoring hierarchically the pore-size distribution and controlling the amount of heteroatom (nitrogen in this case) functionalities as well as the type of nitrogen (graphitic, pyridinic, oxides of nitrogen) incorporated within the carbon framework in a single-step-process. Our newly developed STPP method offers a unique pathway and new design principle to create simultaneously...

  16. Correlation-aware packet scheduling in multi-camera networks

    Toni, L; Maugey, T; Frossard, P
    In multiview applications, multiple cameras acquire the same scene from different viewpoints and generally produce correlated video streams. This results in large amounts of highly redundant data. In order to save resources, it is critical to handle properly this correlation during encoding and transmission of the multiview data. In this work, we propose a correlation-aware packet scheduling algorithm for multi-camera networks, where information from all cameras are transmitted over a bottleneck channel to clients that reconstruct the multiview images. The scheduling algorithm relies on a new rate-distortion model that captures the importance of each view in the scene reconstruction. We...

  17. Mouse xenograft model of corticospinal tract by delayed transplantation of olfactory ensheating cells in adult rats

    Naghynajadfard, M
    Adult rats were trained to use their forepaw for retrieving a piece of noodle through a slit in the front of the cage. The dorsal corticospinal tract was lesioned by a focal stereotactic radio-frequency lesion at the level of the first/second cervical segment. Complete destruction of one side of the corticospinal tract completely prevented the use of the ipsilateral forepaw reaching for at least 6 months after operation. Rats which have shown no forepaw retrieval by 8 weeks were xenotransplanted with a suspension of cultured olfactory ensheathing cells derived from the mouse olfactory bulb, into the lesion site. Starting between...

  18. SleepSight: A wearables-based relapse prevention system for Schizophrenia

    Kerz, M; Folarin, A; Meyer, N; Begale, M; MacCabe, J; Dobson, RJ
    SleepSight is a novel approach to detecting early signs of relapse in psychosis, thereby allowing targeted intervention for relapse prevention. The system uses a wireless-enabled wearable device and smartphone to collect longitudinal accelerometry, heart-rate, ambient light and smartphone usage patterns from patients living in their homes. These data are encrypted and sent via the mobile data network to a secure server for real-Time analysis, using the Purple Robot mobile application. This study tested feasibility and acceptability of the SleepSight system in 15 participants with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Patient recruitment and data collection was completed in January 2016, at the...

    Bruni, C; Lages, A; Patel, H; Nihtyanova, SI; Green, B; AbuHilal, M; Harvey, J; Ong, VH; Matucci Cerinic, M; Derrett-Smith, E; Denton, CP

  20. Collective action problems in the contracting of public services: Evidence from the UK’s Ministry of Justice

    Provost, C; Esteve, M
    In this paper, we examine collective action problems in the UK government in the process of contracting public services to the private sector. In particular, we examine the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and its evolution in contract monitoring as part of a larger effort of the government to join up departments in contract management. By analyzing MoJ’s management of the electronic tagging contract with G4S and Serco, we show that a lack of coordination within the department and with other departments was a major reason for the overbilling by the two companies. Recent efforts to join up contract management efforts...
