In 1913, English physicist Henry Moseley established an elegant method for "counting" the elements based on atomic number, ranging them from hydrogen (#1) to uranium (#92). It soon became clear, however, that seven elements were mysteriously missing from the line up - seven elements unknown to science. In his well researched and engagingly narrative, Eric Scerri presents the intriguing stories of these seven elements - protactinium, hafnium, rhenium, technetium, francium, astatine and promethium. The book follows the historical order of discovery, roughly spanning the two world wars, beginning with the isolation of protactinium in 1917 and ending with that of promethium in 1945. For each element, Scerri traces the research that preceded the discovery, the pivotal experiments, the personalities of the chemists involved, the chemical nature of the new element, and its applications in science and technology. We learn for instance that alloys of hafnium - whose name derives from the Latin name for Copenhagen (hafnia) - have some of the highest boiling points on record and are used for the nozzles in rocket thrusters such as the Apollo Lunar Modules. Scerri also tells the personal tales of researchers overcoming great obstacles. We see how Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn - the pair who later proposed the theory of atomic fission - were struggling to isolate element 91 when World War I intervened, Hahn was drafted into the German army's poison gas unit, and Meitner was forced to press on alone against daunting odds. The book concludes by examining how and where the 25 new elements have taken their places in the periodic table in the last half century. A Tale of Seven Elements paints a fascinating picture of chemical research - the wrong turns, missed opportunities, bitterly disputed claims, serendipitous findings, accusations of dishonesty - all leading finally to the thrill of discovery. 1.

Thin film science has received tremendous attention in last five-six decades especially after the World war II, because of numerous and widespread applications of thin films in electronic industries, micro-electronics and hybrid circuits, optical devices, sensors, superconductivity and recently high memory computer elements etc. Due to the potential applications, thin films of Indium doped CuSe have been extensively studied by doping N or P-type semiconducting material, so that they may be used in various solid state devices. From the present studies it is seen that there are great potentiality to prepare solar cell and barrier junctions with Cu1-xInxSe by thermal evaporation method by improving their diode quality after proper doping, annealing, reduction of interfacial layer and passivation of surface states etc. As the world moves towards realization of high efficiency photovoltaic cells, the race for intermediate defect band materials is on. Doping and nano technology are in the race to establish them as key to manufacturing such materials.
Luke/Acts and the End of History investigates how understandings of history in diverse texts of the Graeco-Roman period illuminate Lukan eschatology. In addition to Luke/Acts, it considers ten comparison texts as detailed case studies throughout the monograph: Polybius's Histories, Diodorus Siculus's Library of History, Virgil's Aeneid, Valerius Maximus's Memorable Doings and Sayings, Tacitus’s Histories, 2 Maccabees, the Qumran War Scroll, Josephus's Jewish War, 4 Ezra, and 2 Baruch. The study makes a contribution both in its method and in the questions it asks. By placing Luke/Acts alongside a broad range of texts from Luke's wider cultural setting, it overcomes two methodological shortfalls frequently evident in recent research: limiting comparisons of key themes to texts of similar genre, and separating non-Jewish from Jewish parallels. Further, by posing fresh questions designed to reveal writers' underlying conceptions of history—such as beliefs about the shape and end of history or divine and human agency in history—this monograph challenges the enduring tendency to underestimate the centrality of eschatology for Luke's account. Influential post-war scholarship reflected powerful concerns about "salvation history" arising from its particular historical setting, and criticised Luke for focusing on history instead of eschatology due to the parousia’s delay. Though some elements of this thesis have been challenged, Luke continues to be associated with concerns about the delayed parousia, affecting contemporary interpretation. By contrast, this study suggests that viewing Luke/Acts within a broader range of texts from Luke's literary context highlights his underlying teleological conception of history. It demonstrates not only that Luke retains a sense of eschatological urgency seen in other New Testament texts, but a structuring of history more akin to the literature of late Second Temple Judaism than the non-Jewish Graeco-Roman historiographies with which Luke/Acts is more commonly compared. The results clarify not only Lukan eschatology, but related concerns or effects of his eschatology, such as Luke’s politics and approach to suffering. This monograph thereby offers an important corrective to readings of Luke/Acts based on established exegetical habits, and will help to inform interpretation for scholars and students of Luke/Acts as well as classicists and theologians interested in these key questions.
KurzbeschreibungZiel der Arbeit war die Erfassung der Nutzungshäufigkeit und –art aller Funktionen des Fahrerarbeitsplatzes im Alltag. Beschrieben werden die konzipierte Untersuchungsmethodik, Versuchsdurchführung und -auswertung. Grundlage des Versuchs war der Aufbau zweier Versuchsfahrzeuge, die die Interaktionen der Fahrer automatisiert aufzeichnen konnten. 72 an den Fahrzeugtyp gewohnte Probanden tauschten für eine Woche ihr eigenes Fahrzeug gegen ein Versuchsfahrzeug. Die Auswertung der Interaktionen ergab einen umfassenden Überblick über das gesamtheitliche Bedienverhalten in natürlichen Situationen.Durchschnittlich werden jede Minute zwei Bedienvorgänge vorgenommen. Hierbei sind sekundäre und tertiäre Fahraufgaben zu gleichen Teilen vertreten. Die Ergebnisse zeigen eine hohe Inter- und Intraindividualität der Probanden.DescriptionA study investigating the driver's usage of control elements in vehicles was made. This paper describes the developed method, test design and the results. Based on two vehicles fully equipped with a data logger the interactions of 72 test persons were tested and evaluated. Each driver had to change his own car with the test vehicle for a week. The analysis gave a broad overview of every day use of vehicle functions in natural driving situations.On average every minute two vehicle functions are used. Fifty percent each of all interactions have to be assigned to the secondary and tertiary driving task. The results show a high inter- and intraindividuality of all test persons.
This study was designed to examine and compare the position of interethnic marriages in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, before and after the war in the 1990s. It is important to stress that the idea of interethnic marriages has been of important significance for every society, since by couples living together and accepting norms and elements from another culture, relationships and interaction are created between different groups. The research has been carried out by the interview method, which makes it unique, since most of the studies done until today have been of a quantitative nature. The theory used was a macrostructural one, based on a previous study done by Blau and Schwartz in 1984. According to the findings, main differences are seen when it comes to childhood and schooling, but there is similarity in couples' views on the future and the need for every individual to be free in making major life decisions. This study is important because it points to how out how much a segregated education system, complex political rule and religious interference in all spheres of public life can in fact destabilize the city, the country, and probably - the whole region.
The narrative journalism that borrows its tools from literature is nothing but a slippery slope leading to the decay of the journalistic trade and undermines the reputation of serious and objective journalism. So reads the critiques by many news journalists who deny the narrative style a place in news reporting. This book claims, on the contrary, that narrative journalism can be both a more efficient and a more compelling way of communicating facts, and that it even has the potential of opening-up a qualitatively different perception and understanding of the content it communicates. Telling Stories of War offers a review of literature on narrative journalism and develops a method to identify and analyse narrative elements in journalistic texts. The method is applied on a selection of articles on the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the famous Norwegian journalist and author Åsne Seierstad both admired and criticised internationally for her narrative reporting from war zones like Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia and Chechnya.
It has been difficult to write a history of Silesia that can be agreed upon by both Germans and Poles. By exploring trauma theory and Polish and German theories of Heimat,I propose a method of writing a history that includes both viewpoints by contrasting Polish and German conception of trauma and Heimat. Horst Schirm and Horst Bienek are analyzed to determine how they defined Heimat and how trauma marked their war- and post-war identities. Dagmar Nick's poetry reflects the moment of trauma, a moment that usually exceeds the power of language to describe.Czeslaw Milosz and Tadeusz Ró ewicz address the trauma of survival. Ró ewicz, in particular, does not rejoice in his survival, but mourns the accident that he survived. Emilia Michalska, Janina Jaworska-Demczakowa, and Alojzy liwa, Polish peasants, do not appear to have elements of trauma in their writings. Instead,they rejoice in the reconstitution of the Polish nation. In the final chapter, I suggest using trauma theory to contribute to the process of writing a comprehensive history of Silesia that represents both the Polish and the German experience.
