O controle da ferrugem asiática é altamente dependente do tratamento com fungicidas. A decisão do momento correto da aplicação é fundamental para a eficiência do tratamento, visto que atrasos na efetuação do controle podem torná-lo tão ineficaz quanto à ausência de aplicações. O dano provocado pela ferrugem asiática é decorrente da redução da área foliar, devido à destruição do tecido vegetal e desfolha precoce. Tendo em vista a influência que o atraso no controle tem sobre a ferrugem asiática, e esta sobre a folhagem das plantas de soja, o dano pode ser melhor compreendido com o uso de variáveis que captem modificações na área foliar do hospedeiro. Com os objetivos de avaliar o efeito do atraso no controle da ferrugem asiática sobre o rendimento e os componentes do rendimento, a duração (HAD), a absorção da área foliar sadia (HAA) de plantas de soja e sobre a severidade da doença e examinar as relações entre o rendimento de soja com a duração, absorção da área foliar sadia e severidade da ferrugem asiática, foram conduzidos cinco experimentos no Centro de Pesquisa e Desenvolvimento Agrícola da Arysta LifeScience, em Pereiras-SP. Os experimentos envolveram um tratamento preventivo e tratamentos que corresponderam a atrasos crescentes na efetuação do controle químico. As relações entre os parâmetros citados acima foram avaliadas por meio de testes de comparação de médias (LSD) e regressões lineares e não lineares (p<=0...

Aerosol optical characteristics of Asian dust are studied by combining Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) data, with Geostationary Meteorological Satellite (GMS-5) visible data, collected during a Yellow Sand event occurred on 7 April 2000. Retrieved results were compared with those from solar aureole measurements at Anmyon-Do, Korea. It was shown that the single scattering albedo of Asian dust can be as low as 0.76, much smaller than the generally known values of 0.9 in the Asian dust source region, such as Dunhuang or 0.93 for Saharan dust. This finding suggests that Asian dust can be much absorbing aerosols. The overall atmospheric forcing efficiency (radiation fluxes per unit aerosol optical thickness at 0.5 μm) of Asian dust observed on 7 April 2000, is about 102 Wm-2 in the atmospheric layer, and -116.9 Wm-2 at the surface. These results strongly indicate that the regional surface and atmospheric radiation energy budget, can be significantly altered by the presence of Asian dust.

We examine the ozone production efficiency in transpacific Asian pollution plumes, and the implications for ozone air quality in California, by using aircraft and surface observations in April–May 2002 from the Intercontinental Transport and Chemical Transformation 2002 (ITCT 2K2) campaign off the California coast and the Pacific Exploration of Asian Continental Emission–B (PEACE-B) campaign over the northwest Pacific. The observations are interpreted with a global three-dimensional chemical transport model (GEOS-CHEM). The model reproduces the mean features observed for CO, reactive nitrogen oxides (NOy), and ozone but underestimates the strong (∼20 ppbv) stratospheric contribution to ozone in the middle troposphere. The ITCT 2K2 aircraft sampled two major transpacific Asian pollution plumes, one on 5 May at 5–8 km altitude with CO up to 275 ppbv but no elevated ozone and one on 17 May at 2.5–4 km altitude with CO up to 225 ppbv and ozone up to 90 ppbv. We show that the elevated ozone in the latter plume is consistent with production from peroxyacetylnitrate (PAN) decomposition during subsidence of the plume over the northeast Pacific. This production is particularly efficient because of the strong radiation and low humidity of the subsiding environment. We argue that such PAN decomposition represents a major and possibly dominant component of the ozone enhancement in transpacific Asian pollution plumes. Strong dilution of Asian pollution plumes takes place during entrainment in the U.S. boundary layer...

An interdisciplinary subject that draws on literature, history, anthropology, film, and cultural studies to examine the experiences of Asian Americans in US society. Covers the first wave of Asian immigration in the nineteenth century, the rise of anti-Asian movements, the experiences of Asian Americans during WWII, the emergence of the Asian American movement in the 1960s, and the new wave of "post-1965" Asian immigration. Examines the role these historical experiences played in the formation of Asian American ethnicity, and explores how these experiences informed Asian American literature and culture. Addresses key societal issues such as racial stereotyping, media racism, affirmative action issues, the glass ceiling, the "model minority" syndrome, and anti-Asian harassment or violence.

The link between the increased Asian immigration to Australia and crime rates has been subjected to debates in Australian contemporary society. With the concern of Australia being overwhelmed by Asians, some politicians, scholars and the public strongly oppose the increase in Asian immigrants. Most of anti-Asian debates are however based on rather subjective claims that Asian immigrants bring more crimes and social disorders to Australia, and these claims have not been supported by any convincing empirical research. Applying multivariate regression analysis, this paper statistically examines the relationship between Asian population, Asian immigrants and crime rates in six states and two territories of Australia from 1981 to 2004. After controlling for the relevant factors such as the population size, state-specific fixed effects, and a measure of urbanisation, the results are mixed. On the one hand, an increase in Asian immigrants has no effect on crime against persons and crime against properties. On the other hand, an increase in the size of Asian population has a statistically significant effect on crime against persons.; no

The collapse of the heretofore most rapidly growing Asian developing economies, combined with the long recession in Japan, caused northern agriculture to endure the combined effects of declining commodity prices and rising domestic costs associated with real appreciations against major Asian trading partners. The redistribution of global investment associated with the Asian recession is likely to be long lasting. In this paper global general equilibrium analysis is employed to quantify the effects of this redistribution. Although the economies of the north prove to be net gainers, northern farmers lose by more than any other non-Asian group. Rising protection has insulated some groups of northern farmers but this has exacerbated the burden of adjustment on others. These losses are substantial compared with those that would be incurred by currently protected farmers were the millennial negotiations to achieve a reduction of existing distortions by half. The political costs of achieving an agricultural trading system more liberal than that of the mid-1990s must therefore be higher following the Asian recession.; no

Recent responses to Asian immigration in Australia can be assessed in relation to Australia’s search for a national identity. Australian nationalism has always had its racist elements, reflected in the maintenance of the White Australia Policy until it was abolished by the Whitlam government in 1973. Asian immigration has built up considerably since them, though no one source country has been dominant. Since the late 1970s, generally one third or more of settler arrivals have been from Asian countries. Migrants to Australia from Asian countries have been, on average, more highly educated and have achieved higher income levels than the rest of the population. However, some groups have had below average education levels, notably refugees from the Indo-chines region. The polls indicate majority opposition to Asian immigration, as to immigration in general, though multiple issue opinion polling does not show immigration to be an issue of major concern. Since the maiden speech in parliament by the independent member for Oxley, Pauline Hanson, in September 1996, a “race controversy” has erupted which has reflected not only the persistence of racist attitudes among a section of the Australian population, but also that there is a class and education element: anti-Asian sentiment is more prevalent among the Anglo-Australian working class than among the better educated and those of immigrant background. Avoidance of further widening of these fault lines in Australian society will require statesmanship of a high order from Australia’s political leaders.; no

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between family cohesion and suicide ideation in a national, adult community sample of Asian Americans (N = 2072). The data for this study was drawn from the National Latino Asian American Study, the first national epidemiological study of Asian Americans’ mental health. The results indicate that family cohesion was negatively related to suicide ideation. In addition, English proficiency moderated the relationship between family cohesion and suicide ideation. Family cohesion was more strongly related to suicide ideation among low English proficiency Asian Americans than among high English proficiency Asian Americans. Further, the findings are consistent with a model in which the relationship between family cohesion and suicide ideation was partially mediated by psychological distress. Practical implications of the results are discussed in terms of how mental health professionals can help strengthen family cohesion and prevent suicide ideation among Asian Americans.

The Conference on Central Asian Languages and Linguistics (ConCALL) was founded in 2014 at Indiana University by Dr. Öner Özçelik, the residing director of the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR). As the nation’s sole U.S. Department of Education funded Language Resource Center focusing on the languages of the Central Asian Region, CeLCAR’s main mission is to strengthen and improve the nation’s capacity for teaching and learning Central Asian languages through teacher training, research, materials development projects, and dissemination. As part of this mission, CeLCAR has an ultimate goal to unify and fortify the Central Asian language learning community by facilitating networking between linguists and language educators, encouraging research projects that will inform language instruction, and provide opportunities for professionals in the field to both showcase their work and receive feedback from their peers. Thus ConCALL was established to be the first international academic conference to bring together linguists and language educators in the languages of the Central Asian region, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region, to focus on research into how these specific languages are represented formally...

My dissertation traces the contemporary American assimilation of Asian enlightenment traditions and discourses. Through a close reading of three communities, I consider how Asian traditions and ideas have been refracted through the psychological, political, and economic lenses of American culture. One of my chapters, for example, discusses how the American Insight community has attempted to integrate the enlightenment teachings of Theravada Buddhism with the humanistic, democratic, and pluralistic values of the European Enlightenment. A second chapter traces the American gum Andrew Cohen's transformation from a Neo-Advaita teacher to a leading proponent of "evolutionary enlightenment," a teaching that places traditional Indian understandings of nonduality in an evolutionary context. Cohen's early period shows the further deinstitutionalization of traditional Advaita Vedanta within the radically decontextualized Neo-Advaitin network, and evolutionary enlightenment engages and popularizes another less-known but influential Hindu lineage, namely that of Sri Aurobindo's integral yoga. a A third chapter examines contemporary psychospiritual attempts to incorporate psychoanalytic theory into Asian philosophy in order to reconcile American concerns with individual development with Asian mystical goals of self-transcendence. In conclusion...

From the critically acclaimed Malaysian film Sepet to the on-going box office successes of the films created by Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai, cinematic texts from the nations of Asia are increasingly capturing audiences beyond their national boundaries. Tradition, Culture and Aesthetics in Contemporary Asian Cinema explores the rise of popular Asian cinema and provides an understanding of the aesthetic elements that mark these films as 'Asian cinema'. Incorporating examples of contemporary films from China, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and India, this book gives readers a fresh insight into the rapidly developing discourse on popular Asian media. The book's chapters focus on the aesthetic features of national cinemas and the intersections of local/global encountered in the production, distribution and consumption of contemporary Asian films. By tracking across some of the most influential countries in Asia the book is able to offer new perspectives into the visual and aural features that create greater understanding between East and West. As distribution and technological advances make Asian films more readily available, an understanding of the different aesthetics at play will enable readers of this book to recognise key cultural motifs found in cinematic texts from Asia.; List of Figures vii Acknowledgements ix Introduction 1 1 An Asian aesthetic 11 2 Orientalism and Tradition on screen 31 3 Of auteurs and aesthetes 63 4 The emerging consciousness of Asia 77 5 Beyond Asia: The international film festival 107 Conclusion 127 Bibliography 129 Films Cited 139 Index 145; Peter C.

This dissertation examines the movement to repeal the Asian exclusion laws in the United States during World War II and the early Cold War years. It situates campaigns for repeal in the context of two interrelated developments: African American civil rights activism in the United States and shifting U.S. geopolitical interests in post-1940 Asia. As U.S. foreign policy priorities pivoted toward Asia beginning in World War II, Americans' view of the world changed in ways that, at times, allowed geopolitics to supersede restrictions based on race. Drawing from U.S., Indian, and Korean sources, the project charts how a transnational cast of American missionaries, U.S. and Asian state officials, and Asian and Asian American activists used the newly expedient language and logic of geopolitics to end the racial exclusion of Asians from immigration and naturalization eligibility. The study highlights a paradox at the heart of the repeal campaigns: beginning in World War II, the perceived foreignness that underwrote the historical exclusion of Asians as “aliens ineligible to citizenship” legitimized them as spokespersons for repeal. During a time when few Americans had knowledge of Asia, Asian American activists parlayed their presumptive expertise as Asian “insiders” to secure a foothold as lobbyists on Capitol Hill. The strategy undermined Asian Americans’ claims to inclusion in the long-term...

This dissertation examines how modern literature in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan in the late-nineteenth to the early-twentieth centuries was practiced within contexts of these countries' deeply interrelated literary traditions. Premodern East Asian literatures developed out of a millennia-long history of dynamic intra-regional cultural communication, particularly mediated by classical Chinese, the shared traditional literary language of the region. Despite this transnational history, modern East Asian literatures have thus far been examined predominantly as distinct national processes. Challenging this conventional approach, my dissertation focuses on the translational and intertextual relationships among literary works from China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, and argues that these countries' writers and critics, while transculturating modern Western aesthetics, actively engaged with the East Asian cultural tradition in heterogeneous ways in their creations of modern literature. I claim that this transnational tradition was fundamentally involved in the formation of national literary identities, and that it enabled East Asian literati to envision alternative forms of modern civilization beyond national particularity. The dissertation is divided into three parts according to the region's changing linguistic conditions. Part I...

This paper outlines the dimensions of Asia's English, which constitutes a world of its own in linguistic, cultural, interactional, ideological, and political terms. The questions this paper raises are: What conditions must a transplanted colonial language satisfy to be accepted as part of the colonized's linguistic repertoire? Why not consider Asian Englishes as part of a local pluralistic linguistic heritage? Answers to these questions demand redefining the concept of «nativeness» and types of nativeness; this paper advances that proposal by describing the distinction between «genetic nativeness» and «functional nativeness». The remainder of the paper comprises the sections: Asian presence of English; domains of functions; the albatross of mythology; mythology and the Asian context; decolonizing context and text; canonicity, diversity and Asian English; English on Asian terms; and institutionalization of Asian Englishes. In concluding, the paper briefly considers the often repeated question: Where do we go with Asian Englishes?.

As a gradual rise in the population of Deaf and hard of hearing Asian students occurs across the United States, classroom teachers of the Deaf are facing this challenge of educating a "unique" and "racial-ethnic" student population and may be somewhat inadequate to serve as role models for Deaf Asian students. Redding (1997) states that identity and role confusion are confounded by a lack of appropriate role models and negative attitudes/stereotypes about minorities in the mainstream society. Thus, issues of inequality, lower academic expectations of minority students, and lack of understanding about multicultural issues and needs of students present a need for a variety of resources to help the teachers to better meet the needs of these Deaf students. Furthermore, students and teachers have the additional challenge of communicating with parents whose first language may not be English. The combination of several factors has a significant effect on the student's self-esteem and identity development process. The curriculum will discuss the overall development of Asian Deaf Identity, including various models and theories, as well as cultural issues in education, particularly a significant lack of a curriculum that recognizes diversity...
