|| (2010-10-29) Change through conservation: protected areas and institutional change in ethnic minorities in Nam Dong district, Vietnam|
Attention for the development of livelihoods of indigenous communities has been increasing during the last two decades. At the same time, the increase of importance of national parks as a means to nature conservation and the general loss of control over the environment for indigenous groups, results in their marginalization. In this paper, the consequences of the loss of control over their own development is explained in the context of Ka Tu people in Nam Dong district, Vietnam. It is argued tha....................

In this thesis we develop a method to find the threshold of trading volume in swing pricing policy. This method is based on the simulation of market excess returns given different values of thresholds. The best estimate of the swing pricing threshold is the one that fits the
swing pricing pattern the most. Since a fund management company may change its swing pricing policy, our study also means to find what change-point detection methods in multivariate observations are more suitable for our re....................

Holst, R. van
Anxiety disorders in children seem to be associated with dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). These deviations in physiological reactions of people with anxiety disorders are assumed to play a major role in anxiety and co-morbid problems like unfavorable cardiovascular outcomes. Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) is indicated as an efficacious treatment for anxiety disorders. It is therefore important to investigate if successful treatment with CBT will results in changes of the AN....................
|| (2017-01-01) Changes in eating time in dairy cows during the transition period|
The number of cows on farms is increasing and less time is available to monitor cattle individually around the time of calving. The aim of this study was to investigate if it is possible to predict approaching parturition in cows based on their eating pattern as determined with a sensor, the Nedap Smarttag Neck. Furthermore, postpartum the difference in the eating/licking behaviour between heifers and older cows and influence of time of parturition on licking behaviour were investigated. The fin....................
|| (2012-01-01) Changes in financing of cost of capital within hospitals and the effects on sustainability reporting, governance and risk management.|
Until 2006 the Dutch Government covered costs of capital within hospitals. As of 2006 these costs have been gradually transferred to the hospitals themselves, and as of 2016 hospitals need to be able to cover these expenses via integral pricing for their delivered health care products and services. At the same time, Health Care has become a more technical and sophisticated industry, which requires large investments in refurbishment of buildings, medical equipment and (information) technology.

Estimating the amount and duration of heat that bones have been exposed to is a difficult task, but can be an important question for both forensic and archaeological casework. Temperature related changes can be estimated by histology. For this method most researchers focus on the changes to the inorganic component of bone, because the organic component is often not as well preserved. However, it has proved difficult to estimate lower temperatures based on the inorganic component of bone. Therefo....................
|| (2014-08-01) Changes in Landholding Patterns in the Age of Sulla: Colonization, Proscriptions and the Villa|
This thesis looks at changes in landholding patterns in the age of Sulla. While most studies on landholding patterns focus on the second century B.C., the author argues that the first century B.C. is deserving of more scholarly attention since many big changes occur in this period. The author discusses Sulla’s colonization programme and the proscriptions in order to determine the effect of these measures on landholding patterns in Italy. Specifically, this thesis seeks to help illuminate the r....................
|| (2016-05-24) Changes in mineralogy and porosity during the reaction of shales with fracking fluid, CO2-fluid and brine|
Shale gas is an unconventional geo-resource, which had lots of attention in the last decade. This is mostly negative attention about the dangers of the chemicals in industrial fracking fluid and its impact on the environment. The methane emissions into the atmosphere are also a large concern when producing shale gas, as it is much higher than those of conventional resources. The challenge of today is to combine the continued use of fossil fuels, while simultaneously also reducing the associated ....................

Background: After ACL injury, most athletes opt for an ACL reconstruction. Despite reconstruction,
they show altered movements during walking, jumping and stepping down. It is conceivable that
patients consciously avoid loading their involved leg because they are internally focused on their
Objectives: The objective of this study is to examine the effect of cognitive motor control in terms of
an internal focus and external focus during an easy and common daily task.

Alberts, L. (Leonie)
Although surgical resection is the standard treatment for stage I and II non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), approximately 20% of these patients are not eligible for surgery. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is a good alternative treatment for these patients.
Lung resection will lead to a decrease in pulmonary function. However, previous studies have shown that pulmonary function after SBRT remains either stable or shows a small decline post-SBRT.
In this study changes in pulmona....................

Various species aim to understand each other through different forms of communication varying from explicit verbal messages to implicit cues from another’s eyes. The eyes, and in particular the pupils, can reveal one’s emotional and mental state which is important for the understanding of another’s goals and intentions. A change in pupils is a signal that can be picked up by observers. The current study examined whether the activated brain regions during the observation of decreasing and i....................

Zomeren, L.M. van
The struggle for life takes many forms, but almost every aspect involves energy. Without this energy, life would not exist. Free-living animals face different energy demands in different seasons, because of seasonal differences in ambient temperature, reproduction, food availability and other factors. If they do not or cannot increase their energy intake, they will start to loose weight and/or experience other deleterious effects like decreased fertility, increased mortality and other fitness lo....................
