This work explores the revival of arguments in abstract argumentation theory. A revived argument is an argument that is put forward in a specific context, but is somehow put aside because it did not seem relevant to the discussion or it has been denied, and then becomes useful in another context when a similar argument emerges. We obtain necessary conditions for argument revival using real-world examples and show that a recently proposed temporal argumentation framework cannot account for argument revival. Next, we propose an algorithm for argument revival that uses arguments annotated by a context label. This algorithm determines what arguments can be revived using the context neighborhood, the attack relations and a revival policy. [less ▲]

This paper presents the development of a control model for inverter driven island grids. The herein presented structured approach creates a multi voltage source inverter model from a single inverter state space model and combines this with the node incidence matrix of a network into a compound model of an island grid. The presented approach allows to analyse arbitrary grid structures and different inverter models and it incorporates a large number of inverters. The model can be particularly used for ohmic-inductive low voltage lines. At the end of the article, a stability analysis of a sample network is presented. [less ▲]

Printing Prêt à Voter ballots on demand is desirable both for convenience and security. It allows a polling station to serve numerous different ballots, and it avoids many problems associated with the custody of the printouts. This paper describes a new proposal for printing Prêt à Voter ballots on demand. The emphasis is on computational efficiency suitable for real elections, and on very general ballot types. [less ▲]

Facebook requires all members to use their real names and email addresses when joining the social network. Not only does the policy seem to be difficult to enforce (as the prevalence of accounts with people’s pets or fake names suggests), but it may also interfere with European (and, in particular, German) data protection laws. A German Data Protection Commissioner recently took action and ordered that Facebook permit pseudonymous accounts as its current anti-pseudonymous policy violates § 13 VI of the German Telemedia Act. This provision requires telemedia providers to allow for an anonymous or pseudonymous use of services insofar as this is reasonable and technically feasible. Irrespective of whether the pseudonymous use of Facebook is reasonable, the case can be narrowed down to one single question: Does German data protection law apply to Facebook? In that respect, this paper analyses the current Facebook dispute, in particular in relation to who controls the processing of personal data of Facebook users in Germany. It also briefly discusses whether a real name policy really presents a fix for anti-normative and anti-social behaviour on the Internet. [less ▲]

Legislation plays a very important role in the economic and social development. This is why the Law must be constantly adjusted to suit the particular circumstances of its recipients. This statement applies to all branches of law, including the law of social and solidarity economy organizations. For a long time, they have been neglected. But in recent years, due to their contribution to the fight against the problems faced by Africa (unemployment, poverty, financial and social exclusion, etc.), these organizations are increasingly considered by legislators. There were legislations applicable to cooperatives in all States Parties to the OHADA Treaty, both before and after the independences. Similarly, in some countries, in the 1990s, the first laws governing mutual societies were adopted. However, these frameworks were generally described as inadequate or insufficient. That was precisely why OHADA decided to integrate cooperatives and mutual societies in its legislative agenda. Its task was to modernize the cooperative law and to fill legislative gaps in mutual society's law. The project was launched in 2001. But between 2004 and 2007, a lively discussion took place and led to the exclusion of mutual society from the OHADA legislation. Therefore, on 15th December 2010, was adopted a OHADA Uniform Act on cooperatives law only. Following the rejection of mutual societies by OHADA, the UEMOA continued its draft law on the same subject, which was adopted in 2009. The objective of this research is to criticize the withdrawal of mutual societies from the OHADA legislation and to plead for a reintroduction of a uniform act on cooperatives and mutual societies. At the time, the OHADA had relied on three main reasons to oust mutual societies: the difficulty to build rules applicable to two legal forms of organization in a single text, the fact that mutual societies are not part of business law that OHADA is supposed to harmonize and the initiation of a legislation on mutual societies in the UEMOA zone at the same period. Throughout the first part of this research, we show that cooperatives and mutual societies share a broad consensus, which is sufficient to demonstrate that they can be treated together under a unique law. In the second part, we note that mutual societies can take the legal form of society, which integrates them in the OHADA law. Also, because of the symbolic supremacy of the OHADA over the UEMOA, we explain how the OHADA legislator could consult his counterpart from the UEMOA in the perspective to avoid duplicative legislations. Once the establishment of this framework, we discussed the process of building such a uniform act. We found that the context is difficult because of the failure of previous experiences, and the need to build a suitable law. Despite this difficult environment, rules can be explored. The appropriate way is to first set the common provisions and then the particular ones, knowing that all of them may help to pave the way for a law of social and solidarity economy. [less ▲]

This study examines the transition to retirement in a comparative analysis. The intersection to retirement has been linked with diverse consequences in past research. On one side, studies find negative effects on psychological well-being of retirement due to loss of employment, social networks and stability through work life. Others present results of a positive effect connected to pension. From a life course perspective, experiences in one’s employment history might impact the transition to and the retirement period itself. I hypothesize on the individual level that transition to retirement is influenced by working life experience and quality. The transition to retirement might be easier for people with a higher socio-economic status thus high education as well as financial resources. On the other hand, the experience of unemployment or lower job placement might cause depression or a decline of life satisfaction. The Theory of Cumulative Advantages and the mechanism of scarring propose that unemployment will have a long-life effect on the career. But is the effect even sustaining in old age? How does the transition to retirement influence life satisfaction and what impact has scarring? To answer these questions I will make use of SHARE and HRS longitudinal data on well-being of seniors and their socioeconomic situation and work history. The rich variation of countries in SHARE makes it possible to compare different welfare regimes. As SHARE lacks liberal countries, I will include the US to have a more consistent picture. [less ▲]

Tin sulfide is being widely investigated as an earth-abundant light harvesting material, but recorded efficiencies for SnS fall far below theoretical limits. We describe the synthesis and characterization of the single-crystal tin sulfides (SnS, SnS2, and Sn2S3) through chemical vapor transport, and combine electronic structure calculations with time-resolved microwave conductivity measurements to shed light on the underlying electrical properties of each material. We show that the coexistence of the Sn(II) and Sn(IV) oxidation states would limit the performance of SnS in photovoltaic devices due to the valence band alignment of the respective phases and the ''asymmetry'' in the underlying point defect behavior. Furthermore, our results suggest that Sn2S3, in addition to SnS, is a candidate material for low-cost thin-film solar cells. [less ▲]

Familienangehörige sind die wichtigsten informellen Pflegepersonen alter Menschen. Der vorliegende Beitrag beleuchtet aus emotions- und handlungstheoretischer Sicht affektive und aktiv-gestalterische Prozesse in der Familienpflege, die in der traditionellen Forschung zu "caregiver burden" und "caregiver gain" bislang nur unzureichend behandelt wurden. Einleitend werden verschiedene objektive Facetten der Pflegebedürftigkeit im Alter inclusive der daraus erwachsenden Aufgaben und Leistungen pflegender Angehöriger sowie der positiven und negativen Auswirkungen auf andere Lebensbereiche der Pflegenden und Gepflegten beschrieben. Im Anschluss daran wird die subjektive Bedeutung der Pflegesituation für die pflegenden Angehörigen thematisiert. Hierbei wird zunächst das breite Spektrum positiver und negativer Emotionen pflegender Angehöriger, deren Genese aus der subjektiven Einschätzung der Pflegesituation und die mit den ausgelösten Emotionen einhergehenden Handlungsbereitschaften der pflegenden Angehörigen dargestellt. Einen weiteren Schwerpunkt bilden zentrale Entscheidungen pflegender Angehöriger für das Leben der Gepflegten und für ihr eigenes Leben (z.B. Übernahme der Pflegerolle, Veranlassung einer Heimunterbringung). Hierbei wird auf die multiplen Ziele pflegender Angehöriger (z.B. Wohlergehen der Gepflegten, eigenes Wohlergehen, Wohlergehen Dritter), mögliche Zielkonflikte und die Bedeutung von Zielen für das Handeln pflegender Angehöriger eingegangen. Möglichkeiten der konsequenten Zielverfolgung in der Pflege werden ebenso behandelt wie solche der flexiblen Zieladjustierung im Falle unerreichbar gewordener Pflegeziele. Abschließend wird resümiert , dass die Anpassung von pflegenden Angehörigen ein komplexes Geschehen darstellt: Die Familienpflege ist mit vielen Aufgaben, Leistungen und Auswirkungen auf andere Lebensbereiche verbunden, wodurch multiple Ziele der Pflegenden tangiert (erfüllt oder frustriert) werden können; solche Ziele können je nach Lage der Situation auf sehr verschiedene Weise verfolgt oder auch an das Realisierbare angepasst werden.
