Temporal causality and the dynamics of crime in Turkey

Halicioglu, F.

Article | 2012 | International Journal of Social Economics39 ( 9 ) , pp.704 - 720

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to study empirically the dynamics of crime in Turkey at aggregate and disaggregate levels and provide empirical evidence of temporal causality between crime, health, income, divorce, urbanization and security expenditures. Design/methodology/approach - The paper employs bounds testing cointegration procedure, augmented causality tests and variance decompositions. Findings - The empirical results suggest the existence of cointegration amongst the variables. Augmented Granger causality tests and variance decomposition analyses indicate the different level, long-term associations between the varia . . .bles. Practical implications - Conclusions drawn from this study could be useful for the policy makers and practitioners in international law organizations. Originality/value - The paper provides first-time, comprehensive, time-series evidence on the dynamics of crime in Turkey using the framework of cointegration and causality tests. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited Daha fazlası Daha az

Tanalp, J. | Ilguy, D. | Dikbas, I. | Oktay, I.

Article | 2012 | Journal of Dental Education76 ( 6 ) , pp.800 - 809

The purposes of this study were to obtain information about the social and demographic profile of students enrolled in the first private Turkish dental school, to gather information regarding the reasons for their preferences, and to obtain data about their career expectations. Questionnaires were distributed to 278 students; 229 returned the survey for an overall response rate of 82 percent. Of the respondents, 145 (65.5 percent) were females and seventy-five (34.5 percent) were males; they had an average age of 21.62±1.58. First degree relative (mother, father, sibling) had the greatest influence on the students in choosing dentis . . .try as a career. Fathers and mothers had similar impact on the students' choice of dental profession (45.9 percent and 46.6 percent, respectively). Humanistic feelings, desire to serve others, and reasonable working hours were the predominant reasons that motivated females to become a dentist ( Daha fazlası Daha az

The status of mineral trioxide aggregate in endodontics education in dental schools in Turkey

Tanalp, J. | Karapinar-Kazandag, M. | Ersev, H. | Bayirli, G.

Article | 2012 | Journal of Dental Education76 ( 6 ) , pp.752 - 758

The aim of this study was to assess the current status of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) as an educational material in dental schools in Turkey. A survey was sent to senior members of the endodontic departments of seventeen dental schools; fourteen responded. All respondents reported that they used MTA in their clinical practice, with apexification, perforations, retrograde fillings, and root resorptions being the most frequently occurring treatment procedures. All reported that information was given to students regarding MTA mainly as part of the curriculum. The third and fourth years were the periods when MTA was introduced to s . . .tudents in most of the schools. Twelve schools reported that students had the opportunity to observe procedures in which MTA was used, but students had the chance to use the material in a very minor proportion of the schools, mainly under the supervision of clinical instructors. Ten schools agreed that MTA should be included in the regular endodontic curriculum. Financial constraints seemed to be the predominant reason for those who answered this question negatively, followed by difficult handling properties and low radiopacity of the material. Within the limitations of this study, it can be concluded that ways should be sought to prevent financial difficulties from depriving dental students of the opportunity to receive information about contemporary methodologies such as MTA utilization Daha fazlası Daha az

Camdali, U. | Tunc, M.

Article | 2012 | Environmental Monitoring and Assessment184 ( 6 ) , pp.3721 - 3729

The approximation of the soil temperature profile may be considered for many energy, environmental, and agriculture applications. In this study, temperature approximation model of ground in Bolu is developed. Unsteady state one-dimensional semiinfinite solid model is used to calculate temperature variation in ground. The results of the temperature equation which are obtained by using analytical method are compared with experimental data obtained from The Turkish State Meteorological Service. Developed model to predict soil temperature variation for Bolu has been solved by using MATLAB computer program. Satisfactory agreement is obse . . .rved between them. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011 Daha fazlası Daha az

Balance-of-payments-constrained growth: The case of Turkey

Halicioglu, F.

Article | 2012 | Journal of Post Keynesian Economics35 ( 1 ) , pp.65 - 78

In order to test the existence of Thirlwall's law for Turkey during the 1980-2008 period, a bounds test approach to cointegration is applied. The empirical results suggest that Thirlwall's law holds for Turkey. This study also suggests some policy recommendations to curb the deficits in the balance of payments. © 2012 M.E. Sharpe, Inc.

Objectives: The Stent for Life (SFL) project's main mission is to increase the use of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in more than 70% of all acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients. Previous to the SFL project, thrombolysis was the dominant reperfusion strategy since a low percentage of acute STEMI patients had access to primary PCI in our country. In this study, we present the main barriers of access to primary PCI in the centers that were involved with the SFL project. Study design: Patients with acute STEMI admitted to the centers that were involved in the SFL project between 2009 and 2 . . .011 were included in the analysis. Results: Since the inception of the SFL project, the primary PCI rate has reached over 90% in SFL pilot cities. In the last 5 years, the number of ambulances and emergency stations has increased. Since the collaboration with 112 Emergency Service, a great majority of cases were reached via the emergency medical system. The mean door-to-balloon time for the pilot cities was 54.72±43.66 minutes. Conclusion: After three years of the SFL project, primary PCI has emerged as the preferred reperfusion strategy for patients with STEMI in pilot cities. © 2012 Türk Kardiyoloji Dernegi Daha fazlası Daha az

Proposition of a model for measuring adherence to lean practices: Applied to Turkish automotive part suppliers

Sezen, B. | Karakadilar, I.S. | Buyukozkan, G.

Article | 2012 | International Journal of Production Research50 ( 14 ) , pp.3878 - 3894

The objective of this study is to develop a model for measuring adherence to lean practices for automotive part suppliers and to assess the relationship between the firm performance and the adoption of lean principles. This model has been developed by utilising the lean practices defined in the literature. The proposed model has been successfully applied to a large number of automotive part suppliers, and has been tested for its statistical validity. To test the proposed model, data were obtained from 207 automotive part suppliers by using the Computer-aided Telephone Interview method. Validity and reliability tests of the developed . . . model of leanness are realised through exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. Correlation analyses are used to examine the relationships between the lean applications and company performance and size. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is applied to reveal whether there are differences in the use of lean techniques across different company categories. The study shows that, in general, Turkish automotive part suppliers are performing their internal production in compliance with the lean manufacturing principles. Furthermore, it is found that there is a significant relationship between adaptation of lean principles by the supplier firms and their performance. The proposed model of leanness can be used by companies in the automotive industry to measure their leanness levels. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC Daha fazlası Daha az

Validation of a general nutrition knowledge questionnaire in a Turkish student sample

Alsaffar, A.A.

Article | 2012 | Public Health Nutrition15 ( 11 ) , pp.2074 - 2085

Objective To validate the general nutrition knowledge questionnaire developed by Parmenter and Wardle (1999) in a Turkish student sample. Design The original questionnaire of Parmenter and Wardle (1999) was modified and translated into Turkish. The modified questionnaire was administered to second year undergraduate students. Some students completed the questionnaire twice for the measurement of test-retest reliability. Statistical analysis was performed on the responses to measure the internal reliability, test-retest reliability and construct validity. Setting Students completed the questionnaire under supervision. The questionnai . . .re was completed at the end of lectures. Retest was carried out two weeks after first administration of the test. Subjects A total of 195 undergraduate students studying either nutrition and dietetics (n 90) or engineering (n 105) participated in the study. Of these, 125 students completed the questionnaire on two occasions. Results Overall internal reliability (Cronbach's ? = 0·89) and test-retest reliability (0·86) were high. Significant differences between the scores of the two groups of students indicated that the questionnaire had satisfactory construct validity. Conclusions The modified version of the general nutrition knowledge questionnaire can be used as a tool to examine the nutrition knowledge of adults in Turkey. In the next stage of the study, some adjustments need to be made to the items that led to low reliability values so that these items will be more applicable to the eating habits and patterns of Turkish people. © The Authors 2012 Daha fazlası Daha az

Reliability and validity of the continence self-efficacy scale in Turkish women with urinary incontinence

Zengin, N. | Pinar, R.

Article | 2012 | Nursing and Health Sciences14 ( 3 ) , pp.277 - 284

This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale. Data was collected from 128 women who had urinary incontinence using the following instruments: the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale, the Broome Pelvic Muscle Exercise Self-Efficacy Scale, the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Short Form, and the Beck Depression Inventory. The validity of the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale was investigated using confirmatory factor analysis and convergent and divergent validity analyses. The reliability of the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale was examined in terms of internal consistency and . . . test-retest correlations. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated a three -factor model that had acceptable goodness-of-fit indices. The convergent validity of the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale was supported by a positive correlation between the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale and the Broome Pelvic Muscle Exercise Self-Efficacy Scale. The divergent validity of the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale was supported by negative relationships between the Continence Self-Efficacy Scale and the Beck Depression Inventory. The Cronbach's alpha values regarding internal consistency were 0.94 for the overall scale and 0.92-0.93 for the subscales. Test-retest correlations were 0.75 for the overall scale and 0.52-0.74 for the subscales. The Continence Self-Efficacy Scale is a valid and reliable instrument for use in Turkish women with urinary incontinence. © 2012 Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Detection of Chicken and Turkey Meat in Meat Mixtures by Using Real-Time PCR Assays

Kesmen, Z. | Yetiman, A.E. | Şahin, Fikrettin | Yetim, H.

Article | 2012 | Journal of Food Science77 ( 2 ) , pp.277 - 284

In this study, TaqMan-based real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) techniques were developed for the detection of chicken and turkey meat in raw and heat-treated meat mixtures. Primers and TaqMan probe sets were designed to amplify 86 bp and 136 bp fragments for the chicken and turkey species, respectively, on the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 gene. In the results, it was possible to detect each species at the level of 0.1 pg template DNA with the TaqMan probe technique without any cross-reactivity with nontarget species (bovine, ovine, donkey, pork, and horse) while the detection level was 1 pg template DNA using co . . .nventional PCR. The TaqMan probe assays used in this study allowed the detection of as little as 0.001% level of both species in the experimental meat mixtures, prepared by mixing chicken and turkey meat with beef at different levels (0.001% to 10%). In conclusion, TaqMan probe assays developed in this research are promising tools in the specific identification and sensitive quantification of meat species even in the case of heat-treated meat products, and suitable for a rapid, automated, and routine analysis. © 2012 Institute of Food Technologists ® Daha fazlası Daha az
