Bixa Travesty e outras espécies do fim do mundo / Tranny Fag and Other End of the World Species

As três fotografias no topo do Instagram não preveem ou revelam o que vem depois. Nas duas últimas estou sorrindo, abraçado a algumas pessoas no mesmo bar em que duas semanas antes nos sentávamos no dia anterior ao segundo turno das eleições para presidente do Brasil. Aquele dia seguinte nunca será esquecido. Pelas fotografias estamos todos bem, porque na maioria das vezes elas não mostram o que está por trás. Elas não mostram, por exemplo, a manhã seguinte e o susto de me encontrar em casa. Elas não mostram a ressaca e o sentimento do fim do mundo. Este fim do mundo um pouco metafórico, um pouco não. O que sobressai é o desacordo, primeiro do meu corpo às situações que o exponho, depois o estar no mundo e o mundo que me expele. Estamos sorrindo nas fotografias, mas a verdade é que temos muito medo. Acordo muito assustado, penso no fim do mundo e em como cheguei até aqui. Me lembro do bar, principalmente pelas fotografias, me lembro do sal, da tequila, do limão, algumas vezes, e depois o fim do mundo. Meu vizinho acorda cedo todos os domingos, e escuta Skeeter Davis como se morasse no campo. Hoje acordei com Davis chorando um término, em alto e bom som, perguntando por que as coisas continuam como são, já que o fim é iminente. Don’t they know it’s the end of the world? Eu acho que eles sabem sim.

Hegel’s logic as the exposition of god from the end of the world

Hegel’s logic as the exposition of god from the end of the world

According to our thesis, the word “being” does not refer to any thing, given fact, state of affairs, intuition, experience, or principle, but solely to the absolute immediacy of positing, a minimal event whose logical space was established by the theticity of a proposition. But why, then, can this “being” only be articulated with an anacoluthon? Why is it satzlos if it only expresses the gist of a proposition? Hegel’s “being, pure being” must always be understood as an answer to Fichte’s I, the true origin of the thetical judgment. In Fichte, the fact of theticity is immanently bound to the ur-substance of the I as a self-consciousness. Fichte’s thetical judg- ment is still committed to a “worldview”, a deductive ontology based on the first principle and caught up in the space of imperatives and infinite tasks. The self-creation of the I is “loaded” with subjective idealism, activism, tendentiousness, asymptotic approach, overcoming hurdles, infinite growth, i.e., with the typical imaginarium of Fichte’s philosophy. The aim of Hegel’s “being, pure being”, however, was to liberate a certain emergent and supplemental truth production from any determinate sub- stance and its necessary subtext. It could almost be said that, since Hegel aimed at capturing the very dimension of truth which emerges by way of a proposition, he could not condemn it to any particular proposition, to this or that utterance, for every specific, articulate judgment would already name a subject, thus inaugurating a substance from which the truth value would derive. If we read Hegel against Fichte, Hegel’s “being” seems merely to skim the cream off the top of theticity, posed by the I am, without also scooping the substance of the I. Hegel’s first “element” strips off the surface and separates it from the act whereby it came into existence in the first place.

Clinics vol.71 número5

In this retrospective study, consecutive patients undergoing sigmoidectomy and anterior resection with NiTi CAR 27 were included from May 2010 to June 2012 at the Cancer Center, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China. The clinical data of CRC in the similar locations resected using stapled anastomosis (STA) were collected during the same period. The inclusion criteria were as follows: age 418 years, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status p2, pathological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma, and rectum tumor located X3 cm above the anal verge. The exclusion criteria were as follows: tumor located on the right side of the colon, sigmoidectomy and an anterior resection performed previously, uncontrolled severe cardiovas- cular and respiratory system disease, pregnancy, and a history of other active malignancies (except for basal cell carcinoma of the skin) during the previous 3 years. NiTi CAR 27 was applied for the end-to-end anastomosis by a team of surgeons who have been using stapling anastomotic devices for more than 10 years in our department. The pathological stage of the tumor in the resected specimen was classified according to the tumor-node- metastasis (TNM) staging system of the American Joint Committee on Cancer/International Union Against Cancer (AJCC/UICC) (16). Prior to the surgical procedure, informed consent was obtained from all of the patients. They were well informed of the method of anastomotic construction by NiTi CAR 27. Study approval was obtained from independent ethics committees at the Cancer Center of Sun Yat-Sen University. The study was undertaken in accordance with the ethical standards of the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki.

The End of Cheap Oil

The End of Cheap Oil

The global picture is more compli- cated, because the Middle East members of OPEC deliberately reined back their oil exports in the 1970s, while other nations continued producing at full capacity. Our analysis reveals that a number of the larg- est producers, including Norway and the U.K., will reach their peaks around the turn of the millennium unless they sharply curtail production. By 2002 or so the world will rely on Middle East nations, particularly five near the Persian Gulf (Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates), to fill in the gap between dwindling supply and growing demand. But once approximately 900 Gbo have been consumed, production must soon begin to fall. Barring a global recession, it seems most likely that world production of conventional oil will peak during the first decade of the 21st century. Perhaps surprisingly, that prediction does not shift much even if our estimates are a few hundred billion barrels high or low.

The Romanian architectural publications until the end of the Second World War

The Romanian architectural publications until the end of the Second World War

From the point of view of the administrative organization and of the cultural and civilizing structure on the Romanian territorys, the XIX th century represented the crucial moment of passing from the Byzantine traditional model to the modern capitalist one. In this century, there are to be put into light the first issues in the domain of the serial journalism. While magazines of different professions came out only in the mid century the architectural periodicals appeared even later as in the epoch the domain itself was very vaguely structured. Even if until the First World War there were but few architectural and related fields periodicals, they brought an essential contribution to the identification, aglutination and promotion of the profession. They also played an undeniable part in the process of configuration the national identity of the Romanian culture.

THE END OF IMF - TURKEY RELATIONSHIP

THE END OF IMF - TURKEY RELATIONSHIP

Realizing economic development and its continueity is difficult, but is a requirement for a country. The basic problem faced by many countries who are trying to establish economic development is domestic and foreign instability. Economic stability is defined by the balance of both domestic stability; such as full employment, equilibrium level of income and price stability and also by foreign stability; such as balance of payments stability. In a country that hasn’t realized economic stability, negativeness in each and also economic crisis can be seen as sosyo-economic problem such as inflation, deflation, stagflation, poverity, inbalance of income distribution. For that reason, the most important task is to provide economic stability and to insure sustainability by economically developed and developing countries. Developing countries generally need foreign support to overcome economic crisis sourced by domestic and foreign imbalance. One of the international organizations that support countries like these are International Money Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB). IMF takes a role by strengthing balance sheet, providing price stability and macro-economic performance, applying financial sector policy and granting credit for needer countries. WB is generally interested in long-term development and policies in reducing poverity.

The citius end: world records progression announces the completion of a brief ultra-physiological quest.

The citius end: world records progression announces the completion of a brief ultra-physiological quest.

The proposed piecewise exponential decaying model, describing momentary expansion in a finite context, suggests a major global fading of WR progression. During an initial phase of rapid improvement, interrupted by two major events (Fig. S1), WR progression rate may have been described by a linear model. With a 40 years hindsight on the WR rate decline (Fig. 2), debate on the limits now clearly emerges. As expected from biology, accurately fitted curves (high r 2 values) now refute the linear model. In all measurable Olympic contests from five different disciplines, involving either aerobic (10000 m skating) or anaerobic (weight lifting) metabolic pathways, leg muscles mainly (cycling) or all muscles (decathlon), lasting seconds (shots) or hours (50 km walk), either in men or women, small (Fly weight) or tall athletes (100 m free style), individual or collective events (relays), all progression curves follow the same pattern, supporting the universality of the model.

As I have argued on another occasion, despite the insufficiencies and problems which the idea of populism implies, (particularly the emphasis on the supposed control and manipulation of the working masses), its mere rejec- tion or substitution by concepts such as ‘workerism,’ ‘the labor project’ or the ‘labor tradition with a popular statist program,’ does not take into account the complexity of the political game and the participation of popular sectors in the public sphere in the period after the Second World War, not just in Brazil, but also in other Latin American countries. These explanatory keys overestimate trade union aspects and labor relations, neglecting the “urban dimensions, a vital aspect in the lives of workers, particularly in cities which had a large in- dustrial expansion during those years.” 17

Evaluation of susceptibility of the ZRE1 alloy to hot cracking in conditions of forced strain

Evaluation of susceptibility of the ZRE1 alloy to hot cracking in conditions of forced strain

The nil strength temperature (NST) for the alloy was determined by testing cylindrical Ø 6 x 90 mm specimens on the Gleeble 3800 simulator. S-type thermocouples were pressure welded to the specimens, and then the specimens were fixed in the chamber by means of copper holders. Constant distance of 52.4 mm was kept between the holders. After evacuation of air, the chamber was filled with argon (to 0.14 hPa). Then, the 0.6 – 0.7 kN minimum pre-load was applied and was maintained until the end of experiment. The specimens were heated at the 20 o C/s rate to 400 o C, and then at the 1 o C/s rate. The NST was determined as the temperature at which the specimen lost its cohesion. The NST for the ZRE1 alloy in as-delivered state is 535 o C.

The Existence Of Leading Islands Securing And The Border Areas Unitary State Of Indonesia An Analysis In Law Perspective

While the political aspect, the border region is classified as vulnerable to political conflicts with neighboring countries due to the intersection of territorial and jurisdictional boundaries, especially in the segment of border that have not been agreed. The issue of border actually starts to rise along with the emergence of waters and fisheries department in 2000 as it continued to release the border policy through the Decree of President (Perpres) No. 78 of 2005 concern the Management of the Outermost Small Islands. As we know there are 11 (eleven) cases in both borders sea and land, as follow: First, the case of Sipadan and Ligitan islands (two our leading islands) by the International Court has decided to belong to Malaysia since 2002. Secondly, the case of Ambalat as an effort of Malaysia to claim the waters territory called Ambalat block occur vagueness in maritime boundary so that this neighboring country tries to take advantage of this vagueness and at last Indonesia set a new base point from Karang Ungaran, until now negotiation has not been completed. Third, Jemur island in Riau province were ever claimed by Malaysia but actually the island is behind our leading island in the area. Fourth, the hostage of supervisory personnel of marine and fishery resources of our borders by Malaysia in response to the arrest of Malaysian fishermen that entering Indonesian waters illegally. These facts indicate that almost each year occur borderline cases experienced by Indonesia. Certainly, it has been a restriction on the importance of the Indonesia sovereignty as a maritime country to be developed and considered as one of the forms of the sovereignty of the Republic of Indonesia relating to the international sea, archipelagic and deepness waters as well as the air space over the territorial sea, archipelagic waters and inland as well seabed and land including natural resources contained therein. Given the importance of maritime areas handling related to the waters, islands and fisheries, it is necessary for specially the management of area with regard to the coastal areas and small islands which are also regulated in Act No. 1 of 2014 concern the Amendment of Act No. 27 of 2007 concern the Management of Coastal Areas and Small Islands. In the Act is understood that the coastal areas and small islands are vulnerable damaged by the activities of people in the use of resources or due to natural disasters and exploitation, so that the need for security measures in the area. Based on this case, it is needed a strategic policies that _________________________

CONTINUOUS CREATION IN THE PROBABILISTIC WORLD OF THE THEOLOGY OF CHANCE

CONTINUOUS CREATION IN THE PROBABILISTIC WORLD OF THE THEOLOGY OF CHANCE

I think we can answer this question in the positive: Yes, He can, because He is the most perfect being and His omnipotence is absolutely unlimited. A very important premise underlying the answer to the last question is that the risk is not so great, or even that it is very small. It is so because the nature and mechanism of the created world ensure with a very high proba- bility that all purposes intended by God will be attained without his causal action in the processes occurring in the world. The emergence of life in the universe is almost inevitable, because the universe is large and old enough, and biochemical mechanisms are very effective. The emergence of sentient beings was also almost inevitable because of longstanding and countless mutations and adaptations of living organisms to their environment. All this was very probable and hence in a sense necessary (inevitable). The great advantage of the non-deterministic world is its own creativity, which is possible because of the chance events happening in a way restricted only by the laws of nature. Thus, if one evolutionary path fails another one is opened. Perhaps a mutation suitable for the growth and development of a given species happened by chance and enabled it to survive in hard con- ditions and further develop. Elasticity and redundancy are very typical for the world of chance, but because of these properties, this world has a large number of possibilities and abilities to develop and regenerate after various natural catastrophes (Łukasiewicz 2006).

	Field Cancerisation of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract: Screening for Second Primary Cancers of the Oesophagus in Cancer Survivors

Field Cancerisation of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract: Screening for Second Primary Cancers of the Oesophagus in Cancer Survivors

Alcohol drinking results in exposure to acetaldehyde, derived from the beverage itself and formed endogenously. Acetaldehyde is a genotoxic compound that is detoxiied by ALDH. The presence of the ALDH2-2 allele encodes ALDH2, an inactive enzyme. Carriers of the ALDH2-2 allele accumulate acetaldehyde and have higher relative risks of alcohol-related OEC and HNCs as compared with individuals with wild-type alleles. The International Agency for Research of Cancer stated in 2009 that acetaldehyde derived from alcoholic beverages could cause cancer and that alcohol consumption, i.e. ethanol in alcoholic beverages, was classiied as a group 1 carcinogen. 17 A strong linkage of

The influence of the arc plasma treatment on the structure and microhardness C120U carbon tool steel

The influence of the arc plasma treatment on the structure and microhardness C120U carbon tool steel

Carbon steel C120U grade is largely used on the tools for cutting, for dies and knives, for stamping and drawing tools, hobs, thread rolling tools and in many other applications due to her typical properties - high hardness, good toughness and compressive strength. The surface of the steel can be modified by using surface engineering's techniques. Remelting of the surface layer by the source of concentrated energy is promising technique to improve properties of the materials [1-6]. Laser or electron beam use to melting of the surface of tool steels aims to obtain a modified layer with increased microhardness and abrasion resistance [7,8]. The surface remelted layer has usually a finer and more homogenous structure than its original base material. The remelting with the arc plasma (TIG- tungsten inert gas or GTAW - gas tungsten arc welding) used as an economical and easily

Buying Behavior Of Organic Vegetables Product The Effects Of Perceptions Of Quality And Risk

Buying Behavior Of Organic Vegetables Product The Effects Of Perceptions Of Quality And Risk

Quality is defined as the degree of excellence or superiority that an organization’s product possesses (Khan, 2005:28). Consumers judge or perceive the quality of the products and it also called perception of quality, because perception of quality derived from the analysis of consumers on product quality (Sanyal & Datta, 2011:605). Customer perceived value of product quality is a consumer opinion as ability of the product who suitable with expectation of consumer (Terenggana et al., 2013:326). Perception of quality is formed on consumers can be affected by several things including past experience, education, purchasing and consumer community (Yaseen et al., 2011:834), and perception of quality is important in improving the quality of products in the view of consumers (Parrol et al., 2013:603). Since knowledge and consumer needs change time by time, it taken an understanding related consumer perception of quality in evaluated to be known how big influence on purchase intention (Sanyal & Datta, 2011:607). Reviewing consumer behavior in foods, in previous research is often studied through perception of quality (Carrasco et al., 2012:1414). On last studied, perceived quality is the consumer’s judgment about a product’s overall excellence or superiority (Zeithaml, 1988). Meanwhile perceived quality is the judgment a consumer of product which refers to the physical characteristics of the product, and is related more to engineering and food technology (Carrasco et al., 2012). Several things that concern on perception of quality, first are spoke on the advantages related to the assessment of consumer products and the second on the technology applied to products that are both better than similar products. That matter is a critical element for consumer decision making, consequently, consumers will compare the

Analytical Determining Of The Steinmetz Equivalent Diagram Elements Of Single-Phase Transformer

Analytical Determining Of The Steinmetz Equivalent Diagram Elements Of Single-Phase Transformer

THE transformer is one of the important elements constituting the electrical systems. In order to predict, the electrical chain performance, a relevant model of transformer is required. Therefore, different transformer models have been established by the electrical engineers since the invention of AC current by Tesla in the late 19th century. So far, the equivalent circuit of a single-phase transformer shows a central branch formed by a resistance in parallel with an inductance. This inductance is associated to the magnetizing and the resistance to the Eddy current. This resistance, known as iron resistance, corresponds to the active power empirically expressed by Steinmetz [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12] and [13].

Modeling of Two-Stage Solidification: Part II Computational Verification of the Model

Modeling of Two-Stage Solidification: Part II Computational Verification of the Model

In the work we assume that the first stage of solidification is the same for both modified and unmodified alloys. Thus, the same dendritic nucleation density is used in both cases. However, we should keep in mind that modifier may affect the dendritic structure formation. In the second stage of the solidification, the nucleation process unfolds in slightly different way, depending on the eutectic transformation mode. In such case nucleation phenomena depends on different densities and different algorithms, as explained in Part I. The authors of the series of papers [3, 6, 7] investigated solidification of modified and unmodified hypoeutectic alloys, and indicated that the difference in nucleation densities for eutectic structure must exists. In [6] McDonald et al. claim that the difference in nucleation density and the size of eutectic grains is “drastic”. It should be noted, that due to the fact that eutectic transformation modes are relatively new area of research, only limited experimental data is available. Keeping this in mind, in our approach we assumed that in the case of modified alloys the nucleation density for eutectic structure is the same as for the dendritic structure. In turn, for the second

The World of Design, a Designed World: the Relevance of Aesthetics for Everyday Life

The World of Design, a Designed World: the Relevance of Aesthetics for Everyday Life

Let us return to Arendt once again. In 1959, in an article already quoted [2014: p. 41], she portrayed the situation from the social or sociological perspective, displaying all the nuances that the game between social classes entails and how they have evolved over history. Mass society itself is a socialisation phenomenon of culture. This is obvious, she states, and mass culture is essentially similar to the sort of culture that spread from intellectual ‘salons’ held by a high society, which was not yet massive but was totally exclusive. She was writing when mass culture started to spread massively. Much later, while thinking about the many transformations that went on in high culture affairs in France during the postmodern years, Jean Louis Fabiani, a French sociologist, recalled that the aim to socialise high culture is what most guided cultural policies in his country. 9 This fact hides at least how difficult it still is to acknowledge cultural values outside the already institutionalised fine arts domain, and the persisting survival of a single hierarchy of cultural production. So to be included in the public policy for cultural affairs, it is better to become a work of art or a new form of art, and that is what design has strategically been done so many times. However, Arendt showed that difficulties between social classes regarding culture are not so deep: on the one hand, former high society behaved like the current masses do at present within mass society and so similar traits identified them as cultured people; on the other hand, if we look at actual numbers, the first representatives of a mass society were so few that they actually were and acted as a sort of elite. From my point of view, this is the secret and hidden paradox, the fundamental lie, underlying the current luxury industry; it also stirred Art Deco’s style and manners, polite behaviours, during the interwar years and later.
