Folkscanomy: A Library of Books

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research. Humorous, surprising and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the...

Changing climatic conditions makes the development of cultivation strategies for protected cherry cultivation necessary. The objective of the present study was to investigate physiological processes in connection with light availability in different planting systems under cover using a Dualex™ for non-destructive measurements. Hence, cherry trees were either trained as hedgerows, i.e. the most dense planting ([2.35 m*2]*1.5 m), or trained as spindles (2.70 m*2.0 m; 1.75 m*2.9 m) and grown...

Mountain glaciers are sensitive to climate change, and can provide valuable information for inferring former climates on the Tibetan Plateau (TP). The increasing glacial chronologies indicate that the timing of the local Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) recorded across the TP is asynchronous, implying different local influences of the mid-latitude westerlies and Asian Summer Monsoon in triggering glacier advances. However, the well-dated sites are still too few, especially in the transition zone...

This paper analyses the observed spatiotemporal characteristics of drought phenomenon in Syria using the Standardised Precipitation Index (SPI) and the Standardised Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI). Temporal variability of drought is calculated for various time scales (3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months) for 20 weather stations over the 1961–2012 period. The spatial patterns of drought were identified by applying a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to the SPI and SPEI values at...

Gentisic Acid (GA) is an endogenously synthesized quinonoid phenolic acid in plants, where it functions as an immune molecule against viral plant pathogens via modifying microRNAs. In mammalians, GA is both consumed from exogenous sources (from fruits and vegetables) and produced endogenously as an endogenous siderophore and as a byproduct of tyrosine catabolism. Besides the edible plants, aspirin is also an important source of GA, since its catabolism produces GA. Noteworthy, humans with...

The depletion of petroleum and fossil fuels and the escalating problem of climate change motivate and compel an ongoing effort focusing on the development of renewable energy in the form of biofuels. Biobutanol is one such potent biofuel, attributing to similar characteristics as of gasoline, which manifests in easier public distribution based on the current oil and gas infrastructure. Also, the development of the third-generation biofuels sourced from cultivation of microalgae seems an...

Ocean warming and acidification are the two most significant side effects of carbone dioxide emissions in the world's oceans. By changing water, temperature and pH are the main environmental factors controlling the distribution, physiology, morphology and behaviour of marine invertebrates. This study evaluated the combined effects of predicted high temperature levels, and predicted low pH values, on fertilization and early development stages of the sea urchins Arbacia lixula, Paracentrotus...

This paper was published in Volume 1 Issue 4 of LLIDS. This essay highlights the reasons that pushed Arab theatre harbingers to think of a theatrical theory in light of which they could express themselves without feeling trapped in Eurocentric histrionic patterns. It also examines Abdelkrim Berchid’s keen interest in theorization and elucidates Festivity’s athletics and poetics of difference. The essay celebrates Berchid as an iconic figure in modern dramaturgy in post-colonial Morocco, but...

This paper was published in Issue 4 Volume 1 in LLIDS. Humour, in Aristotelian thought, often accrues out of an imitation of characters worse than average. Mr. Khan, the lead character in Citizen Khan, could not have been made any worse than what he already is. Every utterance he makes and everything he does instigates explosions of thunderous laughter. Certes, Mr. Khan is flawed in more ways than one can possibly count because he drinks from the saucer, belches repetitively, swears the whole...

Most people report that they are superior to the average person on various moral traits. The psychological causes and social consequences of this phenomenon have received considerable empirical attention. The behavioral correlates of self-perceived moral superiority (SPMS), however, remain unknown. We present the results of two preregistered studies (Study 1, N ¼ 827; Study 2, N ¼ 825), in which we indirectly assessed participants’ SPMS and used two incentivized economic games to measure...
