Risk reduction and harm prevention in technology use. •

A commentary on Swanton et al.'s (2020) ‘Problematic risk-taking involving emerging technologies: A stakeholder framework to minimize harms’

Journal of Behavioral Addictions

Introduction In their paper “Problematic risk-taking involving emerging technologies: A stakeholder framework to minimize harms”, Swanton, Blaszczynski, Forlini, Starcevic, and Gainsbury (2020) discuss key terms and concerns with regards to risk

This article presents some results of the photographic analysis project, that we accomplish on the basis of 17,000 photos shot during the anthropological fieldwork between October 2008 and November 2009 among Evenki living in East Buryatia, in the Eastern part of Siberia. The aim of the project is to study the non-verbal patterns of culture. Some activities are significant due to the natural environment and the peripheral position of the Evenki land. Modern and old instruments can be seen together in the taiga, they relate to each other and form pairs. The existence of these pairs show the necessity of the co-presence of modern and old technologies and the importance of the categories — activities — tasks connected with them. An old instrument can remain among the Evenki only if an adaptable new instrument can find its place in the everyday life. Sometimes old practical skills also need to be reinvented for the accomplishment of a particular task. The things which have no modern existing pair, step by step lose their place and extinguish.

In the paper we present results of multi-analytical study of pottery fragments archaeologically ranked from the Older Linear till the Middle Danube Tumulus Cultures, e.g. originated in the time-span of approximately 4700 years. In the studied set of pottery fragments we didn’t observed substantial differences of the raw materials used and temperatures of firing/annealing comparing studied set through the whole mentioned time-span didn’t surpass 650 °C in any of artefacts studied. The most realistic is to rank temperatures of firing/annealing close to the 600 °C. Oxidizing/reducing conditions during firing/annealing changed. Above statemets are based on the application of the following laboratory methods: stereoscopic observation of natural splitting planes, thin sections studies under polarizing microscope, scanning electron microscope, X-ray diffraction studies, organic matter determination (its quantity as well as quality) and the archaeopal aeomagnetic study.
