  1. The estimate of the denitrification using nitrogen gas excess in the Sea of Okhotsk

    Ito, Masanori
    We measured argon (Ar) and nitrogen (N2) gasses and firstly tried to estimate quantitatively the extent of denitrificaion in the Sea of Okhotsk with considering the bubble injection process. Dissolved N2, Ar and oxygen were obtained at six stations within this region in August, 2007 by using the method of a gas chromatography developed by Tanaka and Watanabe [2007]. With considering several recent hydrological physical data [Itoh et al., 2003; Ohshima et al., 2006], we estimated the total water-column inventory of the nitrogen gas excess above background and the denitrification rate in the Sea of Okhotsk to be 4.3±1.7 mol...

  2. The Labour Market of Retail Sector in Northwest China : A Case Analysis of the Xi’an Metropolitan Area

    Zhao, Lei
    Socio-economic researches on the labor market of manufacturing in temporary China have accumulated abundant research compared to similar researches on other industries; however, the field of researches on labor issues in retail sector remains one of the most underdeveloped research areas as in other industries. Based on three large-scaled surveys, this research covers a variety of rarely explored issues related to the labor market of retail sector in China. These issues include labor market participation and various employments, labor supply like working hours, work efforts, and wages, and also issues related to jobs, such as job matching mechanisms, job turnover,...

  3. Business and Economic History of Copper Industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo

    Kalenga, John Ngoy
    The Democratic Republic of Congo as resource-rich developing country suffers from a phenomenon termed the resource curse. Paradoxically, wealth in the form of natural resources appears to be detrimental to the economic development of the country. The mining sector constitutes the cornerstone of Congolese’s wealth since colonial times. The country on average has lower growth rates, lower levels of human development, and more inequality and poverty. The current scenario of production shows high risk to compromise sustainable development for future generation. The copper ore reserves of DR Congo are estimated to last for about half a century. Sustainable management of...

  4. Developing a Composite Index for Vulnerability of Coastal Communities in Baler, Aurora, Philippines

    Orencio, Pedcris Miralles; Fujii, Masahiko
    By analyzing certain factors influenced by interrelationships that exist between natural hazard occurrences and communities’ inherent social character, the state of vulnerability of a coastal community can be determined. In this study, two frameworks for analysis were designed, following the development of composite index for vulnerability of five coastal communities in the municipality of Baler, Province of Aurora, Philippines. Scores from individual respondents in a survey questionnaire were used to quantify the indicators of the seven factors that estimate the community’s vulnerability with a coastal community vulnerability index (CCVI). Seven factors include geographical, demographic, economic, food, environmental, institutional and capital...

  6. Utilization of health promotion resources and control of health condition among healthy elderly people

    Kuwajima, Daisuke
    In Japan, the world’s most rapidly aging country, health promotion services are often provided for elderly people, especially frail elderly and disabled people. However, in 2010, more than 60% of elderly people considered themselves to be “healthy” (Cabinet Office, white paper on aging society, 2010). It is therefore also necessary to enhance services for health promotion among these healthy elderly people. Previous studies have reported the needs of healthy elderly people with respect to health promotion. However, it is also necessary to clarify how healthy elderly people make use of health promotion resources. The present research aimed to clarify how...

  7. Factors of Child Dental Fear : A Literature Review of Dental Fear in Children

    Nakata, Ayumi; Sato, Yoko
    Objectives. To provide an overview of the literature investigating dental fear in children during the past ten years and to review factors of child dental fear. Methods. The literature was systematically retrieved from an electronic database. The thirty four literatures which were written about the fear of dentistry, psychology and behavior during dental treatment were chosen. Results. The terms of fear being used were “Shika-kyoufu”, “Dental fear”, etc. However, the terms were not defined in any literature. The fear of dentistry, psychology and behavior during dental treatment were assessed according to psychological, behavioral and physiological scales. The ten factors of...

  8. Possibility of face-to-face communication: Strengthening collaboration between the multi-professional care team

    Kameda, Tamaki
    Recently, community-based health and social care is being encouraged in Japan. It is said that the home-based interdisciplinary team provide high quality care to elderly resulting in client satisfaction. However, when discharge support, the collaboration between the emergency word and medical welfare agency does not work adequately. Therefore, it becomes difficult for professionals to consider the views of others and to provide client-centered assessment and intervention. In order to provide opportunity for face-to-face communication and building mutual understanding, the system of nursing care insurance obliges to hold protocol meetings iv which the client and professionals participate. However, owing to some...

  9. Fabrication of Transparent Conductive Film of Carbon Nanotube as Touch Panel Matrix Based on Flexible Sheet Material

    Wang, Yanqing
    This study demonstrates large-scale dispersion of single-walled carbon nanotubes(SWCNTs) and preparation of transparent and conductive thin films of carbon nanotubes as touch panel matrix based on flexible sheet materials such as PET substrate.A sheet resistance of 500 Omega/square at a transmittance of 85% was achieved.The low sheet resistance of the resulting thin conductive film on the PET substrate was due to the interconnecting networks of highly dispersed SWCNTs. They formed strong crisscross networks of nanotubes clustered together, thus improving the electrical and optical properties of the film.Transparent conductive films play critical roles as electrodes in modern electronic devices.The films prepared...

  10. Preventive home visit program for older people

    Ukawa, Shigekazu
    In Japan, the number of older people who need long-term care is rapidly increasing. However, effective prevention strategies for long term care have not been fully established. To support independent living in a community, we made a home visit program for older people with Shinhidaka and Hidaka town in Hokkaido. Two hundred fifty two participants aged 65 years or older living at home were randomly assigned to an intervention (receive a 60-min home visit program once a month for 3 times) or a control group. Qualified medical care personnel such as public health nurses was in charge of the interventions....

  11. Sustainability and Tourism in Protected Areas: Leaving Nothing Behind but Footprints?

    Schaller, Harald Josef
    This research project takes a practical approach on issues related to tourism impact on protected areas [PA] and sustainable tourism within rural areas. The natural environment in northern climate regions is extremely fragile to physical impacts of tourism, which makes it sensitive to the physical impact of tourism. Recent growth in tourism, combined with the image of tourists about the area suggests that further increase and damage can compromise a continuous use due to environmental degradation. This project involves a literature study about current trends in PA management, an assessment of the physical impact of tourism on the natural environment...
