    [Abstract] The amount of biowaste generated by university canteens (BWUC) in the faculties of the University of A Coru├▒a (UDC) varies between 6 and 100 kg/day. In addition, the gardening services of the campus generate even higher amounts of garden waste (GrW), including pruning, which, once crushed, serves as bulking material for composting the biowaste from the canteens. Decentralized composting has been chosen with the aim of producing high quality organic fertilizers for university urban gardens while reducing the environmental burdens of both waste management and agricultural practice. Small static home composters of 340 L (SHC) for smaller amounts of generation (up to 20 kg BWUC/day) were used, while, for faculties of higher generation (up to 40 kg BWUC/day on average), the first composting stage was carried out in a closed and dynamic composter (DC). The dynamic composter was designed and built specifically for this project and its features were improved and optimized throughout the study. The pilot project was carried out in two centers of the UDC, which are known as the Philology Faculty (PF) and the School of Architecture (SA). All the organic waste generated by the canteens of these two colleges from January 2011 to July 2011 (approximately 3000 kg) was treated. Composting in SHC included a thermophilic phase that extended one month beyond the loading period for which thermophilic temperatures were also recorded. The use of the DC as the first stage in combination with static composters (SC) for the maturation stage reduced the overall thermophilic phase to 6ÔÇô8 weeks. The complete maturation (Rottegrade class IV-V) was achieved after about four months in SHC and after two months when using the combined DC-SC system, if the right conditions of moisture were maintained. The chemical quality of the compost produced was compatible with Class A of Spanish legislation (equivalent to organic farmer quality) and the C/N ratio ranged from 9 to 15 depending on the relation BWUC:GrW

    Mycenaean Textile Memories in Homeric Terminology

    Get PDF
    The present paper aims at investigating continuity and disruption between Mycenaean and Homeric Greek in the field of technical terminology pertaining to the textile craft. The objective of the work is a reconsideration of the main verbs (߯Ťć╬▒╬»╬Ż¤ë, ¤ä╬┐╬╗¤ů¤Ç╬Á¤Ź¤ë, ß┐ą╬ȤǤä¤ë, ß╝ɤÇ╬╣╬║╬╗¤Ä╬ޤë), bearing the notion of "to weave", into these two phases of the Greek language. Surprisingly we can also highlight the semantic shift ÔÇô in the reason of the different chronology and contexts of use ÔÇô which characterises the textile terminology. We know, indeed, that the use of the terminology of work (particularly of the manual labour) in relation with the terminology for intellectual activities (planning, ideation, writing, playing music etc.) can be considered a topos in many Indo-European traditions. Following this path of reasoning, most of the terms in the Linear B tablets drawn for manufacturing crafts (such as carpentry or weaving) assume in the Homeric epics a metaphorical meaning

    Artyku┼é ukazuje problemy jakie napotkali studenci I i II roku anglistyki, kt├│rym postawiono za zadanie przet┼éumaczy─ç z j─Özyka polskiego na angielski, fragment uchwa┼éy S─ůdu Najwy┼╝szego dotycz─ůcej wykonania Europejskiego Nakazu Aresztowania. Autor ÔÇô czynny zawodowo prawnik ÔÇô prokurator Prokuratury Rejonowej ÔÇô analizuje ok. 20 zwrot├│w prawniczych pochodz─ůcych z tej uchwa┼éy i, odnosz─ůc si─Ö do oficjalnego t┼éumaczenia tekstu, dokonuje analizy t┼éumacze┼ä zaproponowanych przez student├│w (w sumie 108 wersji) przedstawiaj─ůc i opisuj─ůc zaistnia┼ée b┼é─Ödy. Przeanalizowane przyk┼éady ukazuj─ů specyfik─Ö j─Özyka prawnego i prawniczego oraz zawi┼éo┼Ťci i pu┼éapki leksykalno-syntaktyczne, jakie czyhaj─ů na polskiego t┼éumacza zajmuj─ůcego si─Ö przek┼éadem prawniczych tekst├│w z j─Özyka polskiego na j─Özyk angielski lub odwrotnie. Om├│wione przyk┼éady wskazuj─ů na potrzeb─Ö wysoce profesjonalnego szkolenia student├│w neofilologii w zakresie przek┼éadu tekst├│w specjalistycznych.The article illustrates problems which were encountered by students of the first and second year of English Philology, who had been given a task of translating from Polish into English a passage from a Supreme Court act, concerning the European Arrest Warrant execution. The author who is an active lawyer ÔÇô working as a prosecutor of the District ProsecutorÔÇÖs Office ÔÇô analyzes almost twenty legal phrases coming from the original text and, comparing them with the official version of translation, examines the studentsÔÇÖ versions (108 translations altogether) which are then accompanied by descriptions and comments on the mistakes made. The analyzed examples show the uniqueness of the legal language and its pitfalls as well as lexical and syntactic dilemmas which create linguistic traps for a Polish translator who is preoccupied with translation of legal texts from Polish into English or vice versa. Moreover, the discussed cases indicate the need for a highly professional training of philology students, especially in the area of ESP (English for Special Purposes)
