Kutatásunkban a családállítás közép- és hosszú távú hatásait kívántuk vizsgálni. Az utánkövetéses vizsgálatot 209 személlyel, saját szerkesztésű kérdőívvel végeztük. A kérdőívek adatait az SPSS 10.0 statisztikai programcsomag felhasználásával elemeztük. Kimutattuk, hogy a hazánkban is egyre népszerűbb módszer tényleges hatással rendelkezik. A családállítást követően megélt közép- és hosszú távú változás mértéke szignifikáns. Ez mind a saját hipotézisünknek, mind a hasonló céllal végzett nemzetközi vizsgálatok eredményeinek megfelel.

Astronomical phenomena play a specific role in ancient literature to illustrate the internal chronology of the plot. It is obvious that especially poetical texts which deal with constellations and astronomical terms show a maximum of the so called poetical doctrina as – for example – can be seen in the work of Statius. The present paper thus tries to prove this thesis by analyzing the verses 692–693 of the first book of the Thebais. Therein the vanishing of the Great Bear/Big Dipper constellation seems to refer to a specific season.

Abstract  

Constellation Technology Corporation has developed a spectroscopic nuclear detector called the Xe-110 that is well suited for downhole use in oil and gas well logging. The advantages possessed by this detector over traditional technologies such as NaI(Tl) scintillators are summarized. We discuss an analysis of gamma-ray spectra taken by the Xe-110, which suggests that the superior energy resolution and low background level of this detector enables identification of important features in neutron activation spectra of hydrocarbons that might not be identifiable using an NaI(Tl) crystal.

Hungary ratified Protocol No. 13 to the European Convention for the Protection of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms concerning the abolition of the death penalty in all circumstances. This event is not a surprise since the Hungarian Constitutional Court declared capital punishment unconstitutional in 1990. Retrospectively, the development of the safeguards against capital punishment in Hungary might seem as a stretch of self-evident consequences. The present paper attempts to situate the decision of the Constitutional Court in its broader context and reflect upon the significance of symbolic founding gestures in times of democratic transition.

The contribution of this paper is that the measure of the performance of multistage of 40 kb/s Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation (ADPCM) using signal-to-noise-ratio formula previously derived by AL-Rawi. The multistage performance is tested using QAM signal at data rate of 9.6 kb/s with four types of constellations, rectangular, and (5,11), (4,12), (8,8) circular. The simulation results show that the performance degrades with increasing the number of stages of ADPCM. Also, the performance with circular constellation is better than that with rectangular one.

Nowadays, GPS is the best positioning system with its constellation, but number of GLONASS satellites increased to the required number, with launched new ones, for positioning. With recent revitalization of GLONASS, a great number of high precision GLONASS and GPS/GLONASS receivers have been produced. In this paper, baselines of two networks have been analyzed in order to assess the usability of GLONASS on global positioning. In both networks, repeatabilities of results were investigated by using GPS, GLONASS and GPS/GLONASS data. Results revealed that repeatabilities of all baselines by using GLONASS observations are not consistent when compared to the GPS and GPS/GLONASS.

This paper analyzes resultative constructions in Uyghur as an adjunction relationship between two verbal projections. Uyghur resultatives differ from previously analyzed resultatives, including those in typologically related Altaic languages (see Shibagaki 2011), in that both predicates must match share a subject. One verb encodes a resultative meaning while the other elaborates the manner of achieving the result state, but the ordering is flexible. The only ordering requirement is that the final verb and the object form a telic verb constellation. The unique structure of this construction points to the conclusion that the notion of ‘resultative construction’ does not correspond to any specific syntactic structure crosslinguistically.

Abstract  

The story of the Romanticism sub-series of the Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages illustrates the need for collaborative team efforts such as have actually been promoted by the International Comparative Literature Association to cope more adequately with the complexities of transnational cultural constellations over time. From its inception, the Romanticism sub-series has exhibited a spirit of pragmatic engagement, a will to proceed from concrete examples of literary works and cultural discourses, rather than to impose supposed norms based on pre-agreed paradigms or to privilege today’s theorizing over the past. The cooperation among some 100 researchers from some two dozen countries has yielded an intellectually open picture of how a multifaceted heritage gathers momentum and is blended into the flow of a larger cultural poly-system.

Mating Intelligence (MI) is a hypothesized constellation of mental adaptations that generate adaptive strategies in human mating (Geher & Miller, 2008). Although past research has theoretically explored and empirically evaluated the construct, using a MI scale that was borne of the ideas from Geher and Miller’s work, this study seeks further understanding of this construct by demonstrating incremental validity. Two studies, each with large samples, demonstrate that MI predicts important outcomes beyond traditional conceptions of personality and intelligence. Exploratory factor analyses revealed that the factor structure suggested in previous work was generally congruent with predictions. Further, MI accounted for a significant portion of variance in mating success after controlling for age, the five-factor model of personality and general intelligence.
