Research on cross-national differences in views on aging has often focused on a comparison between Asian and Western countries. However, the results are mixed showing either more positive views in Asia, no difference at all, or even more positive views in Western countries. A potential moderator of country differences that might explain some of the heterogeneity is the fact that views on aging differ in their content and valence depending on life domains such as health versus family relations. Therefore, our aim was to systematically address domain-specific views on aging in a cross-national study, also considering that cross-national differences are age group-specific. We examined differences in views on aging between China, the United States, and Germany in eight life domains using samples with a broad age range. For most of the domains, cross-national differences indicated more negative views on aging in China compared with the Western countries and more positive views among the American compared with the German participants. Intriguingly, the differences between China and the United States or Germany were absent or even reversed in the domains friends, personality, and finances. Cross-national differences also varied by age group. Our results show that explanations of cross-national differences in views of aging probably do not apply uniformly across all life domains or age groups. They underline the importance of acknowledging the domain-specific nature of views on aging in cross-national research. [less ▲]

A matrix of life, nature and the cosmos, Antje Majewski’s World of Gimel is the artist’s own private universal museum in a nutshell, featuring a septet of objects: a clay teapot in the form of a human hand, a shell, a pot made of fragrant wood, a Buddha’s hand citron, a hedge apple, a white stone, a meteorite—acquired by Majewski during her numerous travels and encounters. The exhibition is a book; the book is an exhibition; the World of Gimel—a hybrid of Aleph and Babel, of fantasy and scientific knowledge—is a language laboratory, a structure en abîme, Majewski’s unique venture into the universe of things and their other identity. Participating artists: Thomas Bayrle, Helke Bayrle, Marcel Duchamp, Didier Faustino, Pawel Freisler, Delia Gonzalez, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Edward Edward Krasiński, Leonore Mau, Markus Miessen & Ralf Pflugfelder, Dirk Peuker, Agnieszka Polska, Mathilde Rosier, Gavin Russom, Issa Samb, Juliane Solmsdorf, Simon Starling & Superflex, El Hadji Sy, Neal Tait.

This report examines the conduct of resistance and activism by social movement actors on migrations and refugee movement through the body World Social Forum on Migrations. Specifically focusing on a meeting held in Manila in 2012, the article interrogates the issues, problems, analytical frameworks by which migration discourses are discussed today. In particular, the article gives attention to international migration governance, or the so-called 'migration management' and how this takes central position in contemporary understanding of mobility.

This chapter provides an overview of the findings and chapters of volume 33 in the International Perspectives on Education and Society (IPES) series. It describes the common dataset and methods used by an international research team. The chapter synthesizes the results of a series of country-level case studies and cross-national and regional comparisons on the growth of scientific research from 1900 until 2011. Additionally, the chapter provides a quantitative analysis of global trends in scientific, peer-reviewed publishing over the same period. The introduction identifies common themes that emerged across the case studies examined in-depth during the multi-year research project Science Productivity, Higher Education, Research Development and the Knowledge Society (SPHERE). First, universities have long been and increasingly are the primary organizations in science production around the globe. Second, the chapters describe in-country and cross-country patterns of competition and collaboration in scientific publications. Third, the chapters describe the national policy environments and institutionalized organizational forms that fostered scientific research. The introduction reviews selected findings and limitations of previous bibliometric studies and explains that the chapters in the volume overcome these limitations by applying neo-institutional theoretical frameworks to analyze bibliometric data over an extensive period.

University students' mental health is affected by worries about the employment of their future. Our purpose is to analyze the relationships between traits of worry and career attitudes, happiness and autonomy in their quality of life among postgraduates. Method: Independent of their socioeconomic status, all students obtained financial aid from the government of Luxembourg. A link to an online questionnaire was sent to their home address. The instrument assessed: Penn-State-Worry scale, Career dimensions (adaptability, optimism, knowledge and planning), Happiness and Quality of Life Autonomy scores, and sociodemographic characteristics. Bivariate-tests, correlations and multiple linear regression models were used for analysis. Results: A majority of the 481 volunteers (26.4 years; SD=5.5) were women and unemployed. Sociodemographical factors such as European or non-EU nationality (vs. Luxembourgish), possession of an internship employment contract (vs. fixed-term and permanent contract) and being a part of social and humanity sciences domain were related with high worries. Lower adaptability (β= -2.271; p< 0.001) and optimism career attitudes (β= -2.162; p= 0.002), low happiness (β= -1.518; p= 0.039) and autonomy in their quality of life (β= -0.669; p= 0.004), respectively, were affected by higher worry score. Conclusion: Worry indicator could be observed routinely to monitor students’ career adaptability and optimism. University career employment workshops may help to increase the individual capabilities to improve and/or to maintain their well-being. Nationality, employment contract status and chosen academic field had generated mental health inequalities that must be considered in consultations, counseling and implementation of prevention and promotion programs.

This paper addresses the optimization problem of symbol-level precoding (SLP) in the downlink of a multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) wireless system while the precoder's output is subject to partially-known distortions. In particular, we assume a linear distortion model with bounded additive noise. The original signal-to-interference- plus-noise ratio (SINR) -constrained SLP problem minimizing the total transmit power is first reformulated as a penalized unconstrained problem, which is referred to as the relaxed robust formulation. We then adopt a worst-case design approach to protect the users' intended symbols and the targeted constructive interference with a desired level of confidence. Due to the non-convexity of the relaxed robust formulation, we propose an iterative algorithm based on the block coordinate ascent-descent method. We show through simulation results that the proposed robust design is flexible in the sense that the CI constraints can be relaxed so as to keep a desirable balance between achievable rate and power consumption. Remarkably, the new formulation yields more energy-efficient solutions for appropriate choices of the relaxation parameter, compared to the original problem. [less ▲]

In diesem Beitrag wird der Umgang mit wissenschaftssprachlichen Wortverbindungen in den beiden Textmustern Paraphrase und Argumentation von Texten luxemburgischer Studienanfänger der Germanistik mit L2 Deutsch genau unter die Lupe genommen. Dafür wird ein Korpus von 37 Lernendentexten nach korpuslinguistischen Kriterien aufbereitet und qualitativ analysiert. Es wird untersucht, welche Wortverbindungen für die beiden Textmuster typisch sind, welche Wortverbindungen bereits beherrscht werden und wo Schwierigkeiten auftreten. Die Untersuchung ergibt, dass die Verwendung von Wortverbindungen textmusterspezifisch ist. Die Fehleranalyse zeigt außerdem, dass von 195 verwendeten Wortverbindungen fast ein Drittel fehlerhaft sind. Dabei treten die größten Schwierigkeiten bei der Trennung zwischen Alltagssprache/Umgangssprache und Wissenschaftssprache auf. Als Maßnahmen für den Unterricht wird das Arbeiten mit Wortverbindungslisten, das selbstständige Ergänzen solcher Listen durch Analysen wissenschaftlicher Mustertexte, die Selbstkontrolle am Eigentext und das Arbeiten mit Korpora empfohlen.
