A review of clinical reasoning in nursing education: based on high-fidelity simulation teaching method

practice is of critical importance. 2 However, it has been identified that graduate nurses may lack the clinical reasoning skills to deliver safe and effective patient care. 3 Given the situation, it is of paramount importance to enhance nursing students' clinical reasoning ability. High-fidelity simulation (HFS) uses a human patient simulator to mimic real signs and symptoms and allows the change of physiological parameters in response to interventions. 4 The available evidence supports the notion that medium and/or HFS using manikins is an effective teaching and

On Audiovisual Translation: Dubbing

Abstract

The present article focuses on dubbing understood as a creative process of “adapting” the source language script/verbalized message/soundtrack to the target language script/verbalized message/soundtrack, challenging principles such as fidelity versus freedom in translation, bringing once again to our attention the much debated ‘reality’ pinpointed by the Italian adage “traduttore tradittore”, yet not from the point of view of untranslatability, but from that of the need for “transadaptation” in the interlingual transfer required by the audiovisual industry.

Jacques Derrida’s (Art)Work of Mourning

Abstract

Derrida’s highly personal mourning texts are collected and published in a unique book under the title The Work of Mourning edited by Pascale-Anne Brault and Michael Naas, two outstanding translators of Derrida’s works. The English collection is published in 2001, while the French edition came out later in 2003 titled Chaque fois unique, la fin du monde (Each Time Unique, the End of the World). In his deconstructed eulogies, Derrida, being in accordance with ‘the mission impossible’ of deconstruction, namely, ‘to allow the coming of the entirely other’ in its otherness, seems to find his own voice. In my paper, I will focus on this special segment of Derrida’s death-work (cf. life-work); namely, on his mourning texts written for his dead friends, paying special attention to the rhetoric ‘circling around’ fidelity, friendship, and the other in his textual mourning.

Intermediality and Reflexivity in Andrzej Żuławski’s Fidelity

Abstract

The paper focuses on a characteristic of Andrzej Zulawski’s aesthetics which has been ignored by most of the critics who emphasized the impact of surrealism and the taste for provocation in his cinema. Meanwhile, the œuvre’s French period is obviously characterized by self-reflexivity and media-reflexivity, autobiographical and literary background references. In these film dramas, the topic of love, beauty and artistic values are interconnected with a sophisticated narrative strategy using intermediality and intertextuality in a complex way. In Fidelity (La Fidelité, 2000), Żuławski put photography and literature in focus again in order to express thoughts and emotions in their complexity, surpassing the limitations of the linear narrative. A certain semiotic double-codedness is provided by either intertextual references or the hidden meanings based on the symbolic language of flowers, used as diegetic metaphors. Moreover, Żuławski thematizes photography that makes us conscious of our experiences from an aesthetic distance, even in an ironic manner.

Barak’s Purposive Interpretation in Law as a Pattern of Constitutional Interpretative Fidelity

Abstract

Political jurisprudence points out that constitutional court judges sometimes act like political actors, and that their decisions are a function of strategic and ideological as much as legal considerations. Consequently, the proper role of the courts, notably in exercising their review of constitutionality, has been one of the most debated issues in modern political and legal theory. Part of the controversy is also how to measure the interpretative fidelity of judges to the constitutional texts, or conversely, the level of their political engagement. This paper argues for the reconsideration of Aharon Barak’s Purposive Interpretation in Law in that light. Barak’s work was intended to provide, in the first place, judges and other lawyers with a sort of judicial philosophy – a holistic system of legal reasoning, applying both to the interpretation of will, contract, statute and constitution. Nevertheless, these conventions of legal reasoning, modified and readapted, could well be used also as heuristic tools by the academics in measuring the interpretative fidelity of judges to various sources of law. Accordingly, this paper clings closely to the presentation of Barak’s precepts for the purposive interpretation of constitutions, by focusing on the notions of subjective and objective purpose in interpreting constitutions, and how the potential conflicts between these purposes are resolved.

Movements and settling patterns of Sedge Warblers (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) in the Czech Republic and Slovakia - an analysis of ringing recoveries

Movements and settling patterns of Sedge Warblers (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) in the Czech Republic and Slovakia - an analysis of ringing recoveries

In total, 1655 ringing recoveries of 1492 Sedge Warblers ringed or recovered in the Czech Republic and Slovakia were analysed in respect of breeding site fidelity, natal philopatry and movements. Out of 128 recoveries of adult birds from the breeding season, 96% came from the same locality showing a considerable breeding site fidelity. Out of 9 recoveries of birds ringed in nests and subsequently recovered during following breeding seasons, 8 settled at their birthplaces, only 1 male was found 26 km away from its native locality. After fledging, some juveniles dispersed in directions different from the migration routes. One young bird was recovered on its juvenile dispersal at the age of 35 days. On their migration to winterquarters, Sedge Warblers headed initially between south-west and south-east. The highest concentration of recoveries was situated in the Pannonian Lowland. Birds from the eastern Baltic region and Scandinavia often migrate through the territory of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The only winter record came from southern France.

Winter ranging behaviour of a greater spotted eagle (Aquila clanga) in southeast Spain during four consecutive years

Abstract

Knowing the winter behaviour is essential for deciding on conservation strategies for threatened migratory species such as the greater spotted eagle (Aquila clanga). Fidelity and inter-annual variation in winter home range of an Estonian greater spotted eagle were studied during the first four years of its life by means ofGPS satellite telemetry in south-eastern Spain. Results show the eagle exploited a small area (1 2.7 km2, 95% kernel) with high inter-annual fidelity during all winter stages. The A. clanga preferred marshes and water bodies and avoided irrigated crops and urban areas. Waterfowl hunting did not show any effect on the spatial pattern of the eagle’s behaviour, although water level management in reservoirs could influence their use by the A. clanga. Our study highlights that the wintering home range may be limited to a small suitable habitat patch where human activities, especially water reservoir management, should be regulated
