The article is focused on the traditional Bulgarian St. Trifon’s Day, which has long been celebrated as a feast of wine and vine-growers. Its roots can be traced back to the ancient Thracian cultural heritage mixed with paganism and Christianity. The whole ritual complex with the symbolic forms of behaviour during the ritual actions, as well as verbal blessing formulas, is intended to ensure economic prosperity and infl uence the fertility of the vineyards. Using the sustainability of traditions, during the totalitarian regime the authorities turned the St. Trifon’s Day into a component of the socialist festive system as a professional celebration of vine-growers. Over the last two decades of transition, the ideological clichés of the socialist period gave way to new transformations of the feast. Today, the semantic content of the event resembles a “postmodern” patchwork of folk traditions, Christian rites and urban festivity, which is inherent in current volatility in the production of cultural realities.

Abstract  

The polymorphic transformation of indomethacin (IMC) in the presence of Precirol during heating was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), infrared (IR) spectroscopy, microscopic Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR)/DSC system, and powder X-ray diffractometry with heating. The results indicate that in the presence of Precirol the original γ form of IMC was first transformed to a transition state, and then to a new polymorph by heating or exposure to IR radiation. The transition state of the melted sample gave three endothermic peaks, at 34, 48 and 127°C, and one exothermic peak, at 54°C. The stable melted sample exhibited two endothermic peaks, at 58 and 127°C, which were due to the fusion of Precirol and the new polymorph of IMC, respectively. This new polymorph of IMC also exhibited two specific IR absorption peaks, at 1693 and 1675 cm−1. Microscopic FT-IR/DSC was used to examine the correlation between the structural transformation and its thermal response, and demonstrated the existence of the transition state of the melted sample. X-ray diffractometry with heating confirmed the appearance of the new polymorph of IMC in the presence of Precirol after heating.

Freezing tolerance is a quantitative trait, determined by many genes and also influenced by environmental factors. Thus, the development of reliable testing methods is a prerequisite both for the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and for the identification of the genes behind the QTLs. Transformation methods proved to be effective in the direct verification of isolated genes involved in low temperature stress responses. In order to develop freezing tolerance, winter cereals must be adapted through a cold hardening period, which not only influences cold adaptation but also initiates the vernalization process necessary for flowering. Recent and ongoing studies are endeavouring to uncover the relationship between freezing tolerance and vernalization response at the genetic and molecular levels. This review aims to explain cereal freezing tolerance on the basis of recent discoveries in the areas outlined above.
