China is the second biggest trading nation in the world — number one as trade exporter and number two as trade importer. Behind the USA, China has the second strongest economy with a gross domestic product of almost 5 trillion USD in 2009. Despite the global financial crisis the Chinese economy was and is still drastically growing with three main focus areas: increase in labor costs; increasing demand for qualified labor; and a high grade of technology. Linked to the future 12th five-year-plan, China is going to spend 1.5 billion dollars in key-technologies like nuclear power, high speed railway systems, aerospace, energy efficiency, environmental friendly technologies, biotechnologies and information technology. China is trying to change its status from distributor to a leading high-tech provider with high potential. This implicitly means a higher consumption of natural resources and more highly qualified employees. However, the shortage of natural resources poses a great question. Prognoses say that we will need two Earths to cover our steadily rising resource consumption in 2030. To provide this, the economy has to work much more efficiently and regarding climate and resource protection even a total change is necessary. Due to this, Europe’s and China’s future will need a common economic and ecologic strategy to fulfill international requirements of sustainable growth within balanced natural circumstances.

Az 1896. évi, a honfoglalás ezeréves évfordulójára rendezett országos nemzeti kiállítás részeként, Jankó János gyűjtései alapján bemutatásra került a néprajzi falu. Ez az anyag a magyarság történetét és jelenkorát ábrázoló kiállítás jelenkori részében került kialakításra. A kiállítás elbontása után hosszas vajúdás következett, és az 1960-as évek végéig kellett várni az első falumúzeumok megszületésére.A jelen ellentmondásainak sorában talán a legalapvetőbb az, hogy a korábban egy család által épített, romló természetes anyagból készülő, folyamatos karbantartást igénylő épületet beemeljük a múzeum tárgyainak sorába.

New Member States (NMS) are receiving large and increasing volumes of EU transfers that affect the process of convergence between the EU economies. Growth benefits from EU funds, related to a real convergence, depend strongly on the absorption and utilisation of the transfers, with the priority to finance investments. EU transfers bring opportunities as well as challenges for the process of nominal convergence between NMS and the EMU economies. The intervention highlights the argument that macroeconomic policies oriented towards a sustainable growth, close to its potential, help new members maximise benefits from EU funds.

Abstract  

During the last decade, we have witnessed a sustained growth of South Korea’s research output in terms of the world share of publications in the Science Citation Index database. However, Korea’s citation performance is not yet as competitive as publication performance. In this study, the authors examine the intellectual structure of Korean S&T field based on social network analysis of journal-journal citation data using the ten Korean SCI journals as seed journals. The results reveal that Korean SCI journals function more like publication places, neither research channels nor information sources among national scientists. Thus, these journals may provide Korean scholars with access to international scientific communities by facilitating the respective entry barriers. However, there are no citation relations based on their Korean background. Furthermore, we intend to draw some policy implications which may be helpful to increase Korea’s research potential.

Commercial anti-uric acid diets for dogs may contain insufficient protein to sustain growth and lactation. In order to investigate the efficacy of an experimental purine-free diet moderately low in protein, its effect on urinary uric acid excretion was compared with that of a commercial dog food and a commercial low-protein anti-uric acid diet. The experimental diet, commercial dog food and commercial anti-uric acid diet contained 10.0, 12.8 and 5.0 g crude protein/MJ metabolizable energy, respectively. Twelve Dalmatian dogs were subjected to a 3 × 3 Latin square study. Although the plasma uric acid concentration was significantly lower when the dogs were fed either the commercial anti-uric acid diet (18.7 ± 6.0 µmol/l, mean ± SD, n = 12) or the experimental diet (19.2 ± 8.3 µmol/l), when compared to the commercial dog food (29.2 ± 11.1 µmol/l), no significant decrease of uric acid concentration in urine collected before the morning meal was seen. The average concentration of urinary uric acid was 60 µmol/l. There was a significant increase in the urea:creatinine ratio in urine when the dogs were fed the experimental diet compared to the commercial anti-uric acid diet, confirming that the experimental diet contained more protein. The experimental diet lowered plasma uric acid and was relatively high in protein and thus may be suitable for use in growing and lactating dogs to prevent ammonium urate urolithiasis.
