Glaucomatous Damage Secondary to Long Term Topical Corticosteroid Use in a 7-Year-Old Female  [PDF]
Michael Greenwood, Florin Grigorian
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2014.41008
Abstract:

Introduction: Topical corticosteroids are commonly prescribed for children with atopic dermatitis. Although generally well tolerated, long term unsupervised use can lead to ocular damage, including glaucoma. Much of the current literature focuses on the periorbital use in older patients. We present a case of an adolescent who suffered glaucomatous damage secondary to long term topical steroid use on her extremities. Methods: This is a case report of a child with extensive work-up for glaucoma suspect. Results: A 7-year-old African American female was found to have glaucomatous damage after using 2.5% hydrocortisone cream on her arms, legs, and back of neck twice daily continuously for 2 years. There were no other mechanisms that could have produced a secondary glaucoma. Congenital anomalous disk is a remote possibility. Discussion: Steroid cream use for atopic dermatitis is relatively common. The side effect profile of topical corticosteroids has been well documented and includes glaucoma. These patients may not have any visual symptoms, and can present at an advanced stage, with irreversible vision loss. Children with atopic dermatitis are especially susceptible to the systemic effects of steroids because of the damaged epithelial layer and also the body surface area to volume, both of which increase the bioavailability of the medication. Conclusion: Because topical steroids are commonly used, especially in children, patients need to be aware of the potentially dangerous side effects, including vision loss from glaucoma.

Family Functioning and Adolescents’ Psychological Well-Being in Families with a TBI Parent  [PDF]
Dan Florin Stanescu, Georg Romer
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.27104
Abstract: This study aimed at examining the interrelation between family functioning and children’s mental health in families with a brain injured parent. The first goal of this study was to investigate the predictive power of fam- ily functioning for children’s psychological well-being. Second, differential sub-dimensions of family function- ing were examined in respect of their predictive power for children’s psychological adaptation. Third, coping strategies on the family system level were differentiated in terms of their predictive power both for family func- tioning and for children’s psychosocial adjustment. 58 families were included in the current study. The following instruments were used: Youth Self Report, Family Crisis Oriented Personal Scales, and Family Assessment Device. Family dysfunction as a whole positively correlates with psychological symptoms of adolescents; four sub-dimensions of family functioning predicted children’s problems, namely affective responsiveness, affective involvement, roles, and communication. This research is all the more informative as the studies on the subject are nearly inexistent, and since it focuses on a category of utmost value—children.
Emergent Behaviors in Social Networks of Adaptive Agents
Florin Leon
Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/857512
Abstract: Designing multiagent systems that can exhibit coherent group behavior based on a small number of simple rules is a very challenging problem. The evolution of mobile computing environments has created a need for adaptive, robust systems, whose components should be able to cooperate in order to solve the tasks continuously received from users or other software agents. In this paper, an interaction protocol for a task allocation system is proposed, which can reveal the formation of social networks as an emergent property. The agents can improve their solving ability by learning and can collaborate with their peers to deal with more difficult tasks. The experiments show that the evolution of the social networks is similar under a great variety of settings and depends only on the dynamism of the environment. The average number of connections and resources of the agents follows a power law distribution. Different configurations are studied in order to find the optimal set of parameters that leads to the maximum overall efficiency of the multiagent system.
Optimization of Resource Control for Transitions in Complex Systems
Florin Pop
Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/625861
Abstract: In complex systems like Large-Scale Distributed Systems (LSDSs) the optimization of resource control is an open issue. The large number of resources and multicriteria optimization requirements make the optimization problem a complex one. The importance of resource control increases with the need of use for industrial process and manufacturing, being a key solution for QoS assuring. This paper presents different solutions for multiobjective decentralized control models for tasks assignment in LSDS. The transaction in real-time complex system is modeled in simulation by tasks which will be scheduled and executed in a distributed system, so a set of specifications and requirements are known. The paper presents a critical analysis of existing solutions and focuses on a genetic-based algorithm for optimization. The contribution of the algorithm is the fitness function that includes multiobjective criteria for optimization in different way. Several experimental scenarios, modeled using simulation, were considered to offer a support for analysis of near-optimal solution for resource selection.
Introduction to the Yang-Baxter Equation with Open Problems
Florin Nichita
Axioms , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/axioms1010033
Abstract: The Yang-Baxter equation first appeared in theoretical physics, in a paper by the Nobel laureate C. N. Yang, and in statistical mechanics, in R. J. Baxter’s work. Later, it turned out that this equation plays a crucial role in: quantum groups, knot theory, braided categories, analysis of integrable systems, quantum mechanics, non-commutative descent theory, quantum computing, non-commutative geometry, etc. Many scientists have found solutions for the Yang-Baxter equation, obtaining qualitative results (using the axioms of various algebraic structures) or quantitative results (usually using computer calculations). However, the full classification of its solutions remains an open problem. In this paper, we present the (set-theoretical) Yang-Baxter equation, we sketch the proof of a new theorem, we state some problems, and discuss about directions for future research.
SKLAVINIAI AND ETHNIC ADJECTIVES: A CLARIFICATION
Curta,Florin;
Byzantion nea hellás , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-84712011000100005
Abstract: it has been recently claimed that the first reference to sklavinia as a territory inhabited primarily by slavs is to be found in theophanes confessor. a particular passage in theophylact simocatta in which the word appears has been supposedly mistranslated. in reality, the passage in question contains a reference to sklavinia at least 150 years older than the chronographia of theophanes.
Short Reflections about the Transfer Pricing File
Florin TUDOR
Risk in Contemporary Economy , 2012,
Abstract: Substantive development of the international trade over the past 20 years, reflecting to some extent the degree of integration of national economies and technological progress, presents tax issues of increased complexity in the determination of income and expenses of a company or of a permanent establishment which is part of a multinational group and which must be approached within a jurisdiction. In principle, the specific the right of taxation of each state depends mostly on the tax system used by it: if it is a tax system based on tax residence, source of income, or both. In applying those principles in taxation of multinational companies, one of the most difficult problems encountered consists in establishing, for tax purposes, the appropriate transfer pricing. Taking into account the phenomenon of internationalization of the economic crimes, this paper aims treat uniform the subject in question, but with references to certain mandatory provisions contained in the OECD Guidelines regarding of the transfer pricing.
The United States of Europe: A Conceptual Assessment
Florin Bonciu
Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) , 2012,
Abstract: The paper aims to analyze the concept of United States of Europe from the point of view of previous historical attempts to unite the European state entities as well as from the point of view of a comparative analysis with the United States of America. In order to establish a very clear framework of analysis from the very beginning some possible errors of reasoning are presented. As result of the analysis, the conclusion is that a true European federation of states is very unlikely to materialize in the foreseeable future while some elements of a federal construction are still possible. Another conclusion is that a partial federal construction is not effective; on the contrary, it is prone to generate disequilibria.
THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS AND G20 SUMMIT OF APRIL 2009: A STEP FORWARD TOWARDS BETTER GLOBAL GOVERNANCE OR GLOBAL GOVERNMENT?
Florin Bonciu
Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) , 2009,
Abstract: The paper analyzes the implications of the current global economic crisis for the decision-making mechanisms and interactions among the major players. The analysis explores the possibility that the changes implied and required by the economic crisis may lead either to better global governance or even a step closer to a possible, virtual, global government. The latter hypothesis is approached in a different way as compared to similar topic papers in the sense that a possible global government is seen as a long term objective result of the various reactions and solutions taken by individual entities.
INTELLIGENCE SHARING AND DISSEMINATION IN COMBINED JOINT SPECIAL OPERATIONS
Florin NEGULESCU
Journal of Defense Resources Management , 2011,
Abstract: The vast majority of military strategists agree with the importance of intelligence as a decisive factor during the planning and execution of successful military operations. The intelligence process consists of five phases: Planning and Direction, Collection, Processing and Exploatation, Analysis and Production, and Dissemination and Integration. All these stages are of equal importance in the effort to provide intelligence in support of military operations. However, most analyses concerning the modernization of procedures and technologies required to improve the intelligence process mainly focus on the collection phase of the intelligence cycle. Perhaps the most disadvantaged phase of the intelligence process, in terms of methodological progress, is the intelligence dissemination phase. The purpose of this article is to stress the importance of the intelligence dissemination phase of the intelligence process and to identify the difficulties encountered in this phase during the planning and execution of CJSO (Combined Joint Special Operations).
