In “Philosophical Investigations”, published in 1958, Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian born Cambridge scholar, expressed his thoughts concerning language. Wittgenstein proposed the idea that philosophy aims to clear up the conceptual confusions that caused by untested use of language. The concept of language-games points at the rule-governed chara...

The phenomena of terrorism and other politically motivated violence have been assessed across different disciplines from political science and economics to theology and psychology. Whereas the definitions of the concepts of “terrorism” and “terrorist” are disputed and they rather reflect the perspectives of the defining entity, there is a common co...

In this novel work, Paul Chilton expends a considerable amount of effort examining relations between the use of language and political discourse (p. xi). Many realist linguists in the past century claimed that language should be evaluated as the innate part of a human mind. The scholarly interest in the public use of language is followed by critica...

Problemas tales como los flujos de inmigración, la mayor diversidad de la sociedad y la alienación de sectores de la población no son necesariamente fenómenos nuevos para la Unión Europea. Como ejemplo, el Frontex, la Agencia de la UE para la gestión de la cooperación operativa en las fronteras externas, fue fundada en 2004 a raíz de la inmigración...
Chapter
Economics is the nexus and engine that runs society, affecting societal well-being, raising standards of living when economies prosper or lowering citizens through class structures when economies perform poorly. Our society only has to witness the booms and busts of the past decade to see how economics profoundly affects the cores of societies arou...

David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, on a speech given on 23rd Jan 2013, has put himself on a collision course with the rest of Europe by pledging a high-risk gamble “in or out” referendum on Britain’s EU membership by 2017. He is demanding special privileges for his country and putting Britain's partners under pressure. He said he wanted Bri...

Culture is the symbolic expressive dimension of social life. British culture refers to the patterns of human activity and symbolism associated with the United Kingdom and its people. In its broadest sense, the term applies to the shared experience that comes from a dynamic mix of ages, races, regions, genders, income levels and interests. There are...

“In the Name of the Father” is about innocent people convicted of crimes and sentenced heavily; even when their innocence is known to the police and the real guilty person confesses, there is a cover-up until it is exposed by a dedicated lawyer. The story is based on real-life happening, and in and of itself it’s not that spectacular. However it do...

Article
The military intervention in Afghanistan following the 9/11 attacks of al-Qa‘eda terrorists provided an opportunity for U.S. politicians to materialize their longawaited dream of the monopolar world predicted by scholars like Fukuyama after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the bipolar world. Fukuyama, among others, believed that Amer...
Article
Indium doping was used to enhance the selectivity of SnO2 gas sensor. Both indium-doped and undoped SnO2 gas sensors fabricated with different deposition techniques were investigated. The changes in the sensitivity of the sensors caused by selective gases (hydrogen and wood smoke) ranging from 500 to 3000 ppm were measured at different temperatures...
Article
In this paper an excellent selectivity towards polar CO and NO gases is achieved with an Au/porous-GaAs gas sensor, resulting from reaction kinetics between the polar gases and the pore structures on the Schottky contact. Au/porous-GaAs based on metal-semiconductor Schottky junctions were fabricated and systematically studied as CO and NO gas senso...
Article
This paper investigates the suitability of porous GaAs as a semiconductor material for sensing humidity. The authors have developed two types of sensors based on Pd/porous GaAs and Pd/GaAs Schottky contacts for humidity measurements. It was found that the porosity on GaAs wafer promoted the sensing properties of the contact used as highly sensitive...
Article
The potential of Pd/porous-GaAs Schottky contacts for hydrogen detection at room temperature is presented. The Pd/porous-GaAs contacts were developed using an electrochemical system in our laboratory. Using both forward- and reverse current–voltage (I–V) characteristics we have found that the Pd/porous-GaAs Schottky diode sensor exhibited very high...
Article
In this paper we report the potential of ITO/n-GaAs Schottky diode sensor for carbon monoxide detection at room temperature. The ITO/n-GaAs Schottky contacts were developed using an evaporation system in our laboratory. Due to the very low operating temperature of the diode which shows rapid response to carbon monoxide (CO) it can be applied to mic...
Article
Indium tin oxide (SnO2) thin films were deposited onto glass substrates by sputtering technique. The as-sputtered indium tin oxide sensing films show negligible sensitivities of around 1% in response to different gases. In order to improve the sensitivity of the gas sensors the as-sputtered and air-annealed samples were submitted to proton implanta...
Article
The dependence of sensitivity of SnO2 gas sensors on indium concentration has been studied. Undoped and indium-doped SnO2 gas sensors have been prepared by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) using SnCl4 as precursor solution without or with InCl3 as doping solution, respectively. The response of the sensors is observed to increase significantly with 2...

Question
Moscow and Ankara continue to contest the circumstances surrounding Turkey’s downing of a Russian jet over the Syrian border on 24 Nov.
Considering that Russia and Turkey have strong economic ties, and Russia is Turkey's largest importer, and this is another dispute with NATO after Crimea; what are the consequences of Turkish-Russian dispute over the downed jet?
Was Turkey justified in shooting down a Russian fighter jet?
