Research on the cross boundary Integration of Scientific & Technological Innovation and Artistic Creation

Review Article of Global Journal of Arts and Humanities Research on the cross boundary Integration of Scientific & Technological Innovation and Artistic Creation Guolong Wei College of Humanities, Tianjin University of Technology. The art and technology have a natural relationship, it can be said that the history of art is also the history of science and technology. The development of science and technology has expanded the space for the development of art and formed a new interactive relationship between art recipients and art creators. Therefore, in the future social development, the interaction and combination of art and technology will give both sides infinite vitality. Keywords: Art; Science & Technology; VR ...

Negative Impact of Globalization on Indigenous Cultures: the Case of Salale Oromo, Oromia Regional State, Ethiopia

Research Article of Open Journal of Language and Linguistics Negative Impact of Globalization on Indigenous Cultures: the Case of Salale Oromo, Oromia Regional State, Ethiopia Zewde Getahun Lecturer of International Relations at Salale University, Faculty of Social Science and Humanities, Department of Civics and Ethical Studies, Salale University, Ethiopia. The aim of this article is to assess the negative impact of globalization on indigenous cultures in general and North Shewa in particular. The research is conducted based on qualitative methodology which used in-depth individual interview and observation which helps to raise a better understanding about negative impact of globalization on indigenous cultures. The key informants were taken from selected five towns of North Shewa zone of Oromia regional state which include Fitche town, Garba Guracha town, Gowa Tsion town, Tullu Milki town and Debre Tsige town of Ethiopia. The main objectives of this article is to explain the dimensions of the negative impact of globalization on indigenous Ethiopian cultures such as language, food style, dressing style, marriage, religion and history. In the process of globalization, there is an interaction of cultures and thus, there is a borrowing and transmission of cultures among societies. This is in itself not unusual. But unusual is the domination of one culture over the other. This is true of globalization which has generated a lot of controversy with regards to the rise of a global culture. In the rise of a global culture, Western norms are gradually being transported across the globe as acceptable way of behavior and Ethiopia is one of African countries affected in this regard. Those some valued indigenous Ethiopian culture has been diluted and some of them are totally cancelled. So, Ethiopia is fast running the risk of cultural atrophy consequent of the current logic of globalization. If pressing measures are ...

Development of Light Sensors to Measure Defoliation

Research Article of American Journal of Agricultural Research Development of Light Sensors to Measure Defoliation Christina Chiu, Marlowe Edgar Burce, Philip Virgil Astillo, Joe Mari Maja, Ahmad Khalilian, and Jeremy Greene Edisto Research and Education Center, Clemson University, Blackville, SC, USA Sensors have become valuable tools in agriculture when decisions regarding inputs require precision and speed. For example, factors in estimating defoliation in row crops, such as intensive labor and, in particular, subjectivity, are greatly reduced with the use of sensors that can remove these limitations and biases. Estimates of defoliation are almost always overestimated due to human error and biased, unconscious efforts to locate injury. To address these issues, the accuracy and preciseness of a light-based sensor to detect defoliation was tested by measuring simulated levels of defoliation (0-100%) on paper “leaves” at seven light intensities. Results indicated that higher lux values were detected through thinner paper (filter paper) than through thicker paper (cardstock), demonstrating that leaf thickness could potentially affect accuracy of the light-sensor system. Despite some light penetrating the thinner paper with simulated defoliation levels, the two light sensors tested yielded accurate and precise predictions of defoliation (R2 > 0.95). This light-sensor approach could potentially be used in the field to report real-time measurements of defoliation in row crops, such as soybeans, or in other plant-based systems where losses of leaf area require monitoring in order to prevent economic injury.

Tattoos, is it the new form of rebellion in China?

Research Article of International Journal of Social Research Tattoos, is it the new form of rebellion in China? Daniel Otero The Silver Beach International High School, Hui-dong Country, China When I first came to China, one thing tattoos were equated to: the mark of criminals, ‘loose women’ and gangsters. In other words, tattoos equated with rebellion or bad boy/girl behavior. The stereotypes which go with it! This was back in 2009, as time transpired [at least a decade], it actually became a symbol of defiance within the young-College educated and professional generation; whether it was covered or not. This form of rebellion was a stand-up against everything which had been forced into them, since their childhood. Like the period of the 1960s in American counterculture, China in theory is going through the same thing: whether it’s sexual exploration, homosexuality and now, tattoos. These are considered outside the norms and therefore, counterculture. It’s my point to prove that the ink on the body is the new symbolism of rebellion. Spreading like literal wildfire throughout Mainland China. In a still conservative society, the young-College students and professionals of today are coming at odds with their parents and older generation. In this investigative paper, I aim to show the reader why! Therefore, taking people back in history, with examples like: Yueh Fei, when the tattoo was accepted and hopefully demonstrating with interviews/opinions that this trend continues to grow in China. Keywords: Tattoo, criminals, ‘loose women’, gangsters, defiance, rebellion, counterculture, sexual exploration, College students, young professionals, homosexuality, ink, Yueh Fei and trend ...

The Level of Freedoms in Jordan from the Perspective of University Graduates

Research Article of Global Journal of Arts and Humanities The Level of Freedoms in Jordan from the Perspective of University Graduates Amani G. Jarrara aAssociate Professor - Philadelphia University, Jordan The concept of freedom is one of the fundamental concepts discussed by many thinkers relating it to different aspects, whether behavioral, social, philosophical, political or moral problems of human societies. The study handles the issue of freedom in terms of applied philosophy and in practice .The study aims at identifying the level of freedoms in Jordan from the perspective of Jordanian university students. It discussed the research variable (freedom) according to differences in the fields of freedoms in terms of the variable of specialization (scientific - human). It also aims at identifying the level of freedoms in Jordan in various areas. The study reached conclusions that may be the normal case in different countries but not in Jordan. It reflected the level of freedom in different areas, presented both quantitatively and qualitatively. It concluded that there is no absolute freedom, and the citizen must strive to free oneself from potential control, working according to the need of mental or rational motives. And to reach a state of freedom, people should be the source of all authorities. And to establish freedom and democracy, federal coalition principle must be practiced.
