Critical acts without a critical mass: The substantive representation of women in the Turkish parliament
Ayata, Ayşe (2008-07-01)
Drawing upon in-depth interviews with 20 women MPs and parliamentary debates during the amendment of the Turkish Civil and Penal Codes, we elaborate on the possibility and conditions of women's impact on politics without their constituting a critical mass in the parliament. Our research reveals that when state machinery, women's machinery, and supra-national agencies have created a conducive context, as in the case of the last decade in Turkey, the substantive representation of women's issues become possibl...

Contemporary architectural and urban practice requires a permanent connection to other edging professions such as psychology. This paper tries to reveal another specific nature of such a connection, continuing existent scientific studies in the field of architectural and environmental psychology (LeCompte and Yetken, 1975; McMillen, 1975; İmamoglu, 1976, 1986; Sunar and LeCompte, 1977) by trying to import more broadly the perceptual psychology knowledge into the architectural and urban planning science (and...
Mitochondrial DNA variation in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) populations from Turkey
Kandemir, Irfan; Kence, Meral; Sheppard, Walter S.; Kence, Aykut (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
We have studied mitochondrial (mt) DNA variation in 334 honey bee colonies from 7 different geographic regions of Turkey. We have evaluated Dra I restriction profiles of the CO-I CO-II intergenic region, Hinf-I and Taq-1 restriction profiles of the CO-I gene and EcoR-1 restriction profiles of the whole mtDNA. We obtained three different mtDNA patterns by EcoR-1 digestion. The pattern typical for A. m. carnica/A. m. ligustica predominated throughout Turkey (327 colonies, 97.9%). We observed the pattern commo...
Multi-sensory autonomous cognitive systems interacting with dynamic environments for perceiving and learning affordances (MACS)
Tekinalp, Ozan(2007-11-30)
In Cognitive Science, an affordance is a resource or support that the environment offers an agent for action, which the agent can directly perceive and employ. Only rarely has this concept been used in Robotics and AI, although it offers an original perspective on coupling perception, action and reasoning, differing from standard hybrid robot control architectures. Perceiving affordances in the environment means perception as filtered through the individual capabilities for physical action and through th...
