    (2012-01-01) Het heksenproces tegen Lucia de Berk. Waarheidsvinding of winstbejag
    Bakker, C.D. (Chantal),
    Verpleegster Lucia de Berk wordt in 2001 verdacht van de moord op meerdere patiënten. Direct bewijs is er niet maar in maart 2003 wordt ze toch veroordeeld tot levenslang. In de media wordt ze al snel 'Engel des doods' genoemd. Deze scriptie onderzoekt hoe NRC Handelsblad en De Telegraaf over dit 'hekensproces' berichtten.
    (2012-01-01) Economisch gebruik van dorsresten in Romeins Karanis, Egypte.
    Feenstra, M.M. (Merel),
    Emmer-wheat (Triticum turgidum ssp. dicoccon) was the dominant crop cultivated in ancient Egypt, but was gradually replaced by hard-wheat (Triticum turgidum ssp. durum) during the Ptolemaic period (later the Roman period). Hard-wheat was in contrast to emmer-wheat a free-threshing cereal. Threshing hard-wheat resulted in large numbers of threshing remains. This provided the opportunity to use threshing remains, among others, as temper in the fabrication of mud-bricks in construction. However, ar....................

    Melis, Jacobine,
    Bij het classificeren via het Deventersysteem krijgen voorwerpen een benaming van een voorwerp waarop het lijkt. Bij deze manier van classificeren wordt het gebruik van middeleeuwse voorwerpen geregeld gecorreleerd met het gebruik van moderne voorwerpen. Er is onderzocht hoe het gebruik van middeleeuwse voorwerpen overeenkomt met het gebruik van moderne voorwerpen met dezelfde benaming en wat dit betekent voor dit type classificatiesystemen. Het onderzoek is uitgevoerd door het gebruik van vorme....................
    (2012-01-01) What makes employee willing to share knowledge via intranet?
    Ramdhania, Poppy Yuniarti
    Knowledge Management (KM) has been increasingly discussed by many scholars and captured the interest of practitioners. Knowledge sharing (KS) is one fundamental aspect in organization knowledge management (KM) practice. It bridges the process of acquisition and utilization of individual knowledge. The emerging approach of KS suggests that KS can not be managed but evolves in rich social interaction whereas the engineering approach assumes that KS can be stimulated by creating conditions (struct....................
    (2012-01-01) Innovation dynamics in open source software
    Bloemen, Remco
    Open source software development is a major driver of software innovation, yet it has thus far received little attention from innovation research. One of the reasons is that conventional methods such as survey based studies or patent co-citation analysis do not work in the open source communities. In this thesis it will be shown that open source development is very accessible to study, due to its open nature, but it requires special tools. In particular, this thesis introduces the method o....................

This study investigates how the developmental process works for two advanced students of English their written language productions over the course of approximately 4 years. Subsequently, the written data samples were divided into two overarching categories of writing genres, e.g. formal and informal texts. Grammatical complexity, lexical complexity, and use of formul....................
    (2012-01-01) Does coping style predict vulnerability of depression?
    Vlieg, E.F.
    Individuals can respond differently to stressors. This response determines whether the individual will get stressed. There are certain behavioral patterns which determines how an individual responds to stress. These are called coping styles: ‘A coping style can be defined as a coherent set of behavioral and physiological stress responses which is consistent over time and situation and which is characteristic to a certain group of individuals’ (Koolhaas et al., 1999). There are two coping sty....................

    Prins, G.W.
    Amputatie van ledematen zorgt voor een patiënt voor een aanzienlijke vermindering van levenskwaliteit. Indien het de lagere extremiteiten betreft zal hij zich niet meer makkelijk kunnen voortbewegen. Dit zorgt voor problemen in het dagelijkse leven doordat de patiënt bijvoorbeeld niet meer aan het werk kan, of zich niet meer kan verplaatsen om sociale contacten te onderhouden. In ontwikkelingslanden is het probleem voor mensen met geamputeerde ledematen nog groter aangezien ze vaak niet veel g....................

    (2012-01-01) Micro-RNAs as Regulators of Senescence and Aging
    Roo, W.
    Senescence is the change in the biology of an organism as it ages. It can be caused by different factors, and induced for different reasons. Aging is process, resulting from the accumulation of biological damage. Aging is closely connected to senescence, but has its own regulatory pathways. The p53 and p16 pathway are known to regulate senescence, while the IIS and TOR pathways are the best studied aging pathways. miRNAs have been found to regulate the mechanisms that control senescence and agin....................

    Steinberg, Carina
    The EU's credibility as an actor in civilian crisis management is at stake. Low staffing contributions by the Member States of the Union have been discussed as a main problem in the EU's civilian crisis management since 2009, the year in which the Lisbon Treaty entered into force. Several measures have been taken at EU- and Member State level since then. The central research question of this study is 'What does the staffing record in EU civilian missions look like in 2012, three years after....................
    (2012-01-01) Extending crop growing season to improve yield
    Renes, S.E.
    In order to keep up with growing demands on food worldwide, different ways in which crop yields can be improved need to be investigated. Genetic yield potential depends in part on the total incident solar radiation, which is related to the length of the growing season. This paper aims to give a preliminary assessment of the potential for increasing crop yields by extending the growing season, in the light of expected climatic changes, with the focus on the situation in the cool temperate climate....................

    Verdenius, Francien
    Product design has become a very important tool for brand differentiation. Design has focused on visual design for a long time but recent studies have shown other sensory information can have a positive influence on product experience. It is valuable to have more information about what would be a good base to build a design on. Two studies were conducted to find out if metaphors could provide this base. Two well known dutch metaphors were used to compose the hypotheses for these studies. It was ....................

    Odijk, R.C.A.
    In the last couple of years, Ziekenhuisgroep Twente (ZGT) successfully reduced the access times for surgical operations. This reduction in access time led to a bottleneck shift within the patient process from surgical operation to preoperative screening (POS). According to regulations [1], only people who are screened and have consent of an anesthesiologist can be operated. In some cases, patients were not screened before the surgical operation, which led to delay and occasionally to cancellatio....................

    Stahlhut, Annika Maria Petra
    The financial crisis has demonstrated that integrated capital and financial markets need strong measures on systemic stability to stand confidence-induced break-downs. In view of raising cross-border banking deposit guarantee schemes as means to avoid panic withdrawals have come into sight. European states have therefore encouraged further harmonization on deposit insurance to first, enhance investor confidence for systemic stability and second, ensure fair competition on common markets for capi....................
    (2012-01-01) A java bridge for LSTMIN
    Oostinga, Ruben
    With today’s advancing technology we become more and more dependent on automated systems. We even trust our lives to those systems functioning properly. Think of the fly-by-wire system of a modern airliner. The system makes sure that the instructions of the pilot are translated into the correct movement of the plane. A fly-by-wire system is a lot more complicated than a mechanical system, therefore there is more opportunity for things to go wrong. To use such complicated systems it must be cer....................
