There is an observable discrepancy between the real and virtual economy, as money stopped being the tool and essence of capitalism and the economy in the postmodern era. Money has become a purpose, a simulation, a viral virtual image. For this reason, we should rather say that it is no longer money, but the image of money that talks. The transparent digital convergence culture creates a borderless second world for the economy. This economy and our attitude towards it have never been so far removed from reality. Communication, information and economy have lost their referential nature. As soon as we get in contact with the virtual/digital world, we open our eyes onto the image and the transparency of images. A visual metaphor is a visual rhetorical tool that strives to express messages, to place emphasis on certain aspects of messages, and to convey a persuasive message. This paper aims to demonstrate visual metaphor chains that set a mirror between the real and virtual economy and that serve to show the changed attitude towards money. We illustrate our theoretical approach by analysing the multimodal metaphors that appear in a video clip from popular culture.

Abstract  

High rate, high resolution gamma-spectrometry with real-time correction of counting losses is made possible by combining the novel Preloaded Filter (PLF) pulse processor with the Virtual Pulse Generator (VPG) counting loss correction method. A spectrometry system for high-speed activation analysis based on the PLF processor, VPG correction and a high resolution LOAX detector is tested up to 850 kc/s.

Summary  

The paper deals with the common mistake of interpolating calculation of the efficiency of gamma-detectors by the inverse square law of the distance of the source from the detector cap and suggests the use of the distance from the virtual point detector instead.

In this paper we study left amenability of Lau algebras by introducing left approximate diagonal and virtual diagonal for Lau algebras. Some results related to Hahn-Banach theorem property on foundation topological semigroups are obtained. We introduce the left contractibility of Lau algebras. Some examples for clarifying that left contractibility of Lau algebras is stronger than left amenability of them are given.

Abstract  

The chemical effects of98Mo(n, )99 Mo reaction on molybdenum(II) chloride [(Mo6Cl8)Cl4] have been studied. Retention, thermal and radiolytical annealing were determined. It was found that this molybdenum compound has low retention, a negligible tendency to thermal annealing and a virtual insensitivity to hydrolysis. For practical application in the enrichment of99Mo by the Shilard-Chalmers method, molybdenum(II) chloride [(Mo6Cl8)Cl4] appears to offer good prospects.

Abstract  

Extraction studies of uranium(VI) by the binary mixture of PC88A and benzimidazole show an antagonistic behavior in the concentration range 10−5–10−6M of PC88A and 0.005M of benzimidazole. Antagonism is observed due to the deprotonation of PC88A by benzimidazole forming an adduct resulting in the virtual removal of PC88A from the system.

Abstract  

The concept of representing a cylindrical detector volume as a virtual point detector in order to simplify the evaluation of the detector efficiency was proposed in the past for HPGe detectors in the case of measuring point sources. In the present work, the validity of the point detector model was studied and confirmed for the direct measurement of small volume sources, when using a common 7.5×7.5 cm2 NaI(T1) detector.

Abstract  

Science mapping projects have been revived by the advent of virtual reality software capable of navigating large synthetic three dimensional spaces. Unlike the earlier mapping efforts aimed at creating simple maps at either a global or local level, the focus is now on creating large scale maps displaying many thousands of documents which can be input into the new VR systems. This paper presents a general framework for creating large scale document spaces as well as some new methods which perform some of the individual processing steps. The methods are designed primarily for citation data but could be applied to other types of data, including hypertext links.
