Background and aims

Our research is a part of a complex dropout research, whose main aim is to examine the time changes, social and regional inequalities, and constitutional differentiation of student dropout, appearing on a large scale and causing individual and institutional loss. As a part of this, the aim of our research on one hand is to identify the training fields and training levels with high dropout risk, furthermore to draw the patterns of dropout based on the available countrywide data.

Methods

We analyzed the database of the Hungarian Higher Education Informational System for our research, especially considering the students starting their training, based on final exam. We examined the most important features of advancements in studies, furthermore the occurring recoils. Considering our data, the measure of dropout remarkable differs based on the training fields and schedule, training, finances and some demographically background variable as well, taking the measure of dropout and its reasons into account. During our analysis, we separated three main types of the dropout’s reasons: financial reasons, study inefficiency, and dropout caused by other reasons.

Results

In this study, we examine these types and their characteristics in three different training levels: Bachelor degree programs, undivided, long-cycle Master courses, and short-cycle higher education vocational training.

Discussion

Almost one third of the students end up joining the group of dropout in all kind of training type, especially critical period is from the second to the fifth semester. The most endangered are males, correspondent students, fee-paying students, participants of higher education vocational training, furthermore the students of science and students of IT fields.

The Úrkút manganese ore deposit (Transdanubian Range, Hungary) is one of the largest manganese accumulations to be formed during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event. In the past 60 years, the area was investigated intensively. The core storage facility of the manganese mine had more than 20,000 sample pieces. Most of these samples have never been investigated. During this study, which is the first widespread clay mineral study in the footwall of the Úrkút manganese ore deposit, we investigated 40 samples from seven boreholes (footwall rocks, black/gray shales below and above the first ore bed, and manganese carbonate ores). Although previous studies assumed that smectite is associated only with the ore beds, our research revealed its appearance in the footwall (Pliensbachian) as well. Simultaneously, tripoli (the local name of completely bleached chert) can also be found in the footwall. Based on the investigated samples, a sharp geochemical difference was detected between Pliensbachian and Toarcian sediments. In this paper, we try to trace the relationship between the smectite content of the footwall and the ore bed and compare these results with the observed geochemical changes. Based on the new data, we assume that the ore accumulation was caused by a flow system (upwelling-controlled ore formation).

The Hutterites and Habans produced coloured-glazed, mostly blue- and yellow-coloured vessels alongside their white-glazed faience ware. However, the production technology of the coloured-glazed vessels, specifically the nature of the glaze, is a matter of debate among scholars. Both coloured tin glaze and coloured engobe covered with a transparent lead glaze were thought to have been applied on the ceramics.

Around 140 objects of blue-glazed Hutterite and Haban museum objects and archaeological artefacts were analysed using a handheld XRF spectrometer. In addition, small fragments of selected ceramics were studied by electron microprobe analysis (EMPA).

According to the XRF measurements the blue glaze of all except one of the studied Hutterite and Haban ceramics contains tin in variable amounts (from about 0.015 wt% up to 13 wt%). The EMPA technique showed that tin in the form of tin oxide opacifier was deliberately added to the single-layered alkali– lead or lead–alkali glaze. These data confirm that the tin glaze technique was used during production of blue-glazed ceramics, and in this respect they can be regarded as faience. The blue glaze of the Haban vessels produced by a “mining town” workshop contains tin in very low concentrations (Sn <0.2 wt% by XRF), therefore the opacity of the glaze is mainly caused by the abundant silica and arsenate particles.

This study investigates the metabolic effects of maize- or wheat-based diets with normal (NP) and lowered (LP) dietary crude protein level [the latter supplemented with limiting amino acids and sodium (n-)butyrate at 1.5 g/kg diet] at different phases of broiler fattening. Blood samples of Ross 308 broilers were tested at the age of 1, 3 and 6 weeks. Total protein (TP) concentration increased in wheat-based and decreased in LP groups in week 3, while butyrate reduced albumin/TP ratio in week 1. Uric acid level was elevated by wheat-based diet in week 1 and by wheat-based diet and butyrate in week 3, but decreased in LP groups in weeks 3 and 6. Aspartate aminotransferase activity was increased by wheat-based diet in week 3, and creatine kinase activity was intensified by LP in weeks 3 and 6. Blood glucose level decreased in wheat-based groups in week 3; however, triglyceride concentration was augmented in the same groups in week 3. No change of glucagon-like peptide 1, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide and insulin concentration was observed. In conclusion, an age-dependent responsiveness of broilers to dietary factors was found, dietary cereal type was a potent modulator of metabolism, and a low crude protein diet supplemented with limiting amino acids might have a beneficial impact on the growth of chickens.

A tanulmányban áttekintjük az idegrendszeri komplexitás anatómiai és élettani jellegzetességeit előtérbe helyezve ennek elektrofiziológiai vonatkozásait. Kitérünk azokra a módszerekre, amelyekkel ezek a tulajdonságok vizsgálhatók, kiemelve annak jelentőségét, ami az egyes idegrendszeri területek integratív működésében nyilvánul meg egyes kognitív funkciókat tekintve. Példákat hozunk fel annak demonstrálására, hogy e szemlélet milyen előnyöket biztosít ezen funkciók vizsgálatának szempontjából mind az egészséges, mind pedig a kórosan működő idegrendszer esetében.

Abstract

Background and aims

Due to its important role in both healthy groups and those with physical, mental and behavioral disorders, impulsivity is a widely researched construct. Among various self-report questionnaires of impulsivity, the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale is arguably the most frequently used measure. Despite its international use, inconsistencies in the suggested factor structure of its latest version, the BIS-11, have been observed repeatedly in different samples. The goal of the present study was therefore to test the factor structure of the BIS-11 in several samples.

Methods

Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were conducted on two representative samples of Hungarian adults (N = 2,457; N = 2,040) and a college sample (N = 765).

Results

Analyses did not confirm the original model of the measure in any of the samples. Based on explorative factor analyses, an alternative three-factor model (cognitive impulsivity; behavioral impulsivity; and impatience/restlessness) of the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale is suggested. The pattern of the associations between the three factors and aggression, exercise, smoking, alcohol use, and psychological distress supports the construct validity of this new model.

Discussion

The new measurement model of impulsivity was confirmed in two independent samples. However, it requires further cross-cultural validation to clarify the content of self-reported impulsivity in both clinical and nonclinical samples.

Elméleti háttér: Fogyasztói kultúránkat jelentős mértékben meghatározza, hogy az emberi testnek központi szerepet tulajdonít. Ezen túlmenően a fiatalságot és szépséget tekinti az ideális és kívánt állapotnak. A női test kitüntetett helyet foglal el ebben a rendszerben. A fehérneműreklámokban jellemzően egysíkú nőábrázolással találkozhatunk, amely figyelmen kívül hagyja a fogyasztók életkori heterogenitását, eltérő életciklusát, testalkatát és igényeit. Azt, hogy kire milyen módon hatnak a reklámok, számos tényező befolyásolja. Cél: A 20 és 65 év közötti nők fehérneműreklámokhoz fűződő asszociációinak vizsgálata, továbbá annak körüljárása, hogy a fehérneműmodellek megítélése hogyan függ össze a nők saját testükkel kapcsolatos elégedettségével. Módszer: A feltáró kutatásban 95 nő (átlagéletkor: 40,9 [SD = 12,6] év) vett részt, a népességi adatoknak megfelelő korosztályi arányban. A papír-ceruza teszteken túl a résztvevőkkel készült fehérneműreklámokról szóló interjúkat és reklámképekre adott reakcióikat tartalomelemzéses módszerrel értékeltük. Eszközök: Emberalakrajzok Tesztje, Sziluett-teszt, Képasszociációs feladat, Szituációs feladat, gondolattérkép készítése. Eredmények: A nők 66,3%-a utalt rá, hogy az átlagos nőktől eltérőek a fehérneműreklámokban szereplő modellek. Jelentős együttjárás van abban, hogy milyen testalkatot tartanak a nők ideálisnak saját maguk és a fehérneműmodellek számára (r = 0,56; p < 0,001). A testtömegindex bejósló hatású (ß = –0,16; p < 0,001) a saját testtel (centrális területtel) való elégedettségre. A legtöbben (59%) a bokájukkal voltak elégedettek, míg a legnagyobb számban (37%-ban) a csípőjükkel kapcsolatban fejezték ki elégedetlenségüket. A megkérdezett nők 53,7%-a fejezte ki aktuális testalkatával való elégedettségétől, életkorától, iskolázottságától függetlenül, hogy változatosabb testalkatú nők megjelenítésére vágyik a fehérneműreklámokban. Jelentős arányban (41,1%) jelent meg a változatosabb életkorú modellek megjelenítésére való igény is. A modell testalkatának változására vonatkozó igényt előre jelzi a diszkrepancia élményének kifejezése (OR = 1,95; p = 0,003), a modell életkorának változására vonatkozó igény mértéke, továbbá bejósolható a válaszadó életkora (OR = 1,05; p = 0,008), illetve a diszkrepancia említésének gyakorisága alapján (OR = 1,71; p = 0,009). A modell változatosabb testalkata iránti igény jelentősen összefügg a modell életkorának változását sürgető válaszokkal (rs = 0,58; p < 0,001). Következtetés: A nők jelentős százaléka szóvá teszi, hogy különbséget lát a modellek és a hétköznapi nők testalkata között. A résztvevők nagyobb része nem tartja ideálisnak jelenlegi testalkatát. Többen voltak teljesen elégedettek a „perifériás” testrészeikkel, mint a „centrális” területekkel. A modellek és a hétköznapi nők ideális testalkatának együttjárása utalhat arra is, hogy a modellek által megjelenített testideál fontos a nők saját ideális testalkatának meghatározásában, de az is lehetséges, hogy a nők testalkat tekintetében magukhoz hasonló modelleket szeretnének viszontlátni a reklámokban. A résztvevők jelentős része kifejezte igényét a reklámokban megjelenő fehérneműmodellek változatosabb megjelenítésére mind a testalkatot, mind az életkort tekintve, ami a fehérneműreklámokban megjelenített nőkép újragondolásának igényére hívja fel a figyelmet, különös tekintettel az ideáltól való eltérés esetleges negatív pszichés következményeire.

Background: Our consumer culture is largely defined by the central role it attributes to the human body. Moreover, it views youth and beauty as the ideal and desirable state. Female bodies play a prominent role in this system. Representation of women in lingerie advertisements typically ignores the heterogeneous ages, life stages, body types, and needs of women. How individuals are affected by advertising is influenced by multiple factors. Purpose: Examining the associations of women between the ages of 20 and 65 on lingerie advertisements, and exploring the interaction between the judgement of lingerie models, and women’s body satisfaction. Methods: The pilot study had 95 female participants (mean age: 40.9 [SD = 12.6] years) whose ages reflect a similar age distribution to that of the broader population of Hungary. In addition to analysis of questionnaires, content analysis was applied to interviews and reactions to advertisements. Measures: Fallon-Rozin body shape figure scale (1985), Silhouette-test, Picture association exercise, Situational exercise, Mind Map. Results: 66.3% of women indicated that models featured in lingerie advertisements do not reflect average women. The body size that women saw as ideal for themselves and for lingerie models correlate significantly (r = 0.56, p < 0.001). Body mass index is predictive (ß = –0.16, p < 0.001) of satisfaction with the central areas of the body. Most participants were satisfied with their ankle (59%), and dissatisfaction with hips was most common (37%). 53.7% of participants expressed a desire to have more diverse body types featured in lingerie advertisements. This is independent of their current body satisfaction, body mass index, age or level of education. A significant amount (41.1%) of participants expressed their demand for more diversity in the age of models as well. The frequency of mentioning the demand for changing the body type of models can be predicted based on the expression of discrepancy (OR = 1.95; p = 0.003), and the extent of the demand for changing the age of models can be predicted based on the age of the participant (OR = 1.05, p = 0.008) and the frequency of referring to the discrepancy between models and other women (OR = 1.71, p = 0.009). The demand for more diverse body types strongly correlate with the responses demanding a change of the age of lingerie models (rs = 0.58, p < 0.001). Discussion: A considerable percentage of women point out perceiving a difference between the body types of models and everyday women. Most participants do not regard their current body type as ideal. More women were satisfied with their ‘peripheral’ than their ‘central’ areas. The correlation between the ideal body type that women identify for themselves and for models may indicate that the body ideal represented by models is important in defining women’s body ideals, but it is also possible that women are expressing a wish to see models that are more similar to themselves. A significant number of women expressed a need for more diversity among lingerie models regarding both body type and age, which highlights a need to reconsider the image of women represented in lingerie advertising, especially considering the potential adverse psychological effects of differing from the ideal.
