On the contrary of common beliefs; the sources of conflicts were not extreme delinquent behaviors of teens; but daily issues such as chores, room management, and so on.

The current study exclusively focused on the predictive roles of demographical, mothers’, adolescents’, and parenting characteristics. The data from 338 mother-adolescent pairs were analyzed. For each theme; separate regression analyses were conducted for developmentals stages of adolescence separately. The results were discussed in the light of the literature. The conclusion was that there were different mechanism active in predicting variances of conflict from mothers’, and youth perspective for each theme, and for each grade.

Yalçındağ, Bilge; İmamoğlu, Emine Olcay; Department of Psychology (2009)
As an age old virtue, courage has been linked to several characteristics; however, the number of empirical studies discussing these linkages is few. Also, the literature lacks a proper self report measure of courage. With these voids in mind, the aims of the present research are threefold: a) to develop a new scale to measure courage which has been mostly understood in terms of being able to present oneself in a genuine way, perseverance under difficult circumstances, and pursuit of morally right behavior; ...

But so far all the efforts of putting knowledge in a historical perspective since Hegel's historization of Spirit either suffer from the limitations of the presupposition of the One (Spirit or Being) or fail to ground the historicity of knowledge on the history of coming-to-be and passing-away. Moving from Hei...
Analysis and Comparison of Fully Homomorphic Encryption Approaches Over Integers
Bozkurt, Cansu; Cenk, Murat; Betin Onur, Cansu; Department of Cryptography (2022-2-10)
The time period after the mid-20th century was named as information age or digital age. In that age, the world is being digitalized very fastly. The amount of data transferred and processed online is increasing rapidly. As a result, data protection became an essential topic for researchers. To process or make a computation on the encrypted data deciphering ciphertext first causes a security flaw. Homomorphic encryption (HE) algorithms were designed to make computations on data without deciphering it. Howeve...
