Dieser erste Band in der Reihe "ScientiPHIc" enthält eine Untersuchung über Jugendliche im öffentlichen städtischen Raum. Ausgangspunkte sind stadtsoziologische, sozialisations- und organisationstheoretische Ansätze. Die Datengrundlage der Studie stammt aus dem Projekt "Streetwork – Jugendliche im städtischen Raum", das in den Jahren 2001-2003 im Auftrag der Stadt Luxemburg und des Familienministeriums vom CESIJE mit der Unterstützung von Caritas Jeunes et Familles und InterActions durchgeführt worden ist. Das Projekt dokumentiert, wie sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung im Dialog mit Experten und Betroffenen dazu beitragen kann, politischen Handlungsbedarf zu identifizieren und gesellschaftliche Gestaltungsperspektiven zu öffnen. Entwickelt wird das Bild einer vernetzten Jugendsozialarbeit, die sich im Wesentlichen als multimodale Hilfeleistung für gefährdete Jugendliche versteht. [less ▲]

As it is obviously impossible for the modern ‘demos’ to assemble in order to take political decisions, democratic representation is an inevitable tool in large democracies. Representatives have to stand for and to act for the people as a whole. Accordingly, the principle of representative or parliamentary democracy is a fundamental constitutional principle shared by all the Member States of the Union. Democracy doubtlessly works on the national level; the Member States' decisional powers, however, are fading with the constant transfer of competences towards the European level. This leads to a system of European ‘multi-level governance’ with wide consequences for the linkage between the represented peoples of the Member States and their representatives on both national and European levels.

If capital is an essential input, the neoclassical growth model has a steady state with zero capital. From this, one is inclined to conclude that an economy starting without capital can never grow. We challenge this view and claim that, if the production function satisfies the Inada conditions, a take-off is possible even though the initial capital stock is zero and capital is essential. Since the marginal product of capital is initially infinite, the ‘trivial’ steady state becomes so unstable that the solution to the equation of motion involves the possibility of a take-off, even without capital. When it happens, the take-off is spontaneous; there is no causality. [less ▲]

To develop a questionnaire with which to measure quality of life (QoL) in patients with knee and hip osteoarthritis (OA). Study Design and Setting: Thirty-two caregivers and 96 OA patients were interviewed individually (using cognitive and face-to-face techniques) and in focus groups. A group of experts working independently at first and then consensually used the interview transcripts to generate a 46-item questionnaire. Results: Analysis of questionnaires completed by 263 patients with hip or knee OA resulted in the exclusion of three items (two because of low reliability and one because of a low response rate). Principal component analysis revealed four factors: physical activity, mental health, social functioning, and social support. A pain dimension was individualized. Preliminary testing showed the reliability of the five dimensions to be satisfactory (intraclass correlation coefficients: 0.70–0.85), construct validity was adequate when correlated with the SF36 (Spearman correlation coefficients: 0.43–0.75), and discrimination was satisfactory. The osteoarthritis knee and hip quality of life questionnaire (OAKHQOL) consists of 43 items in five dimensions and three independent items. Conclusion: TheOAKHQOLis the first specific knee and hipOAquality of life instrument. Its development followed an a priori structured strategy to ensure content validity. It meets psychometric requirements for validity and reliability. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Lower mortality rates among women with chronic heart failure than among men may depend in part on the action of female sex hormones, especially estrogens. The biological effects of estrogens are mediated by 2 distinct estrogen receptor (ER) subtypes (ERalpha and ERbeta). The present study was undertaken to determine the role of ERbeta in the development of chronic heart failure after experimental myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Female ERbeta null mice (BERKO(Chapel Hill)) and wild-type littermates (WT) were ovariectomized, given 17beta-estradiol, and subjected to chronic anterior MI (MI; BERKO n=31, WT n=30) or sham operation (sham; BERKO n=14, WT n=14). At 8 weeks after MI, both genotypes revealed left ventricular remodeling and impaired contractile function at similar average infarct size (BERKO-MI 32.9+/-5% versus WT-MI 33.0+/-4%); however, BERKO mice showed increased mortality (BERKO-MI 42% versus WT-MI 23%), increased body weight and fluid retention (P<0.01), higher ventricular pro-ANP expression (BERKO-MI 27.9-fold versus sham, WT-MI 5.2-fold versus sham; BERKO-MI versus WT-MI P<0.001), higher atrial natriuretic peptide serum levels, and increased phospholamban expression (P<0.05) compared with WT mice. CONCLUSIONS: Systemic deletion of ERbeta in female mice increases mortality, aggravates clinical and biochemical markers of heart failure, and contributes to impaired expression of Ca(2+)-handling proteins in chronic heart failure after MI. Further studies are required to delineate the relative importance of cardiac and vascular effects of ERbeta and the role of ERalpha in the development of heart failure. [less ▲]
