    Currently, most studies are moving towards Big Data Analytics (BDA) because they are important in research, and this is becoming increasingly important as Internet and Web 2.0 technologies become increasingly popular and how to handle this massive data. Moreover, this proliferation of the Internet and social media has revolutionized the search process. With this Big Data of data generated by users using social media or electronic platforms, the use of these details and daily activities is integrated with tools designed for analysis. The topic of analyzing big social media will be discussed and an intensive explanation will be given to the topic of Big Data. This paper compares Big Data analysis techniques using several methods of analysis, the first technique using neural networks and the second technique using data clustering. The purpose of this study is to infer the ages that use social media and what are their interests in writing and in the end, who are the most widely used social media males or females.
  • The fragility of the human mind under the infernal pressures from the Security.

    Ciornea, Andrei (Ovidius Univesity of Constanta (Romania), 2020-11-30)
    The present research aims to reveal a unique aspect of the confinement periplus of George Văsîi, one of the five young members of “The Burning Altar” group, as it was declared by the Security in 1958. The main source of the present scientific research was the files from the Archives of the National Council for the Study of Security Archives (ACNSAS) from which we selected a series of documents that directly concern Văsîi George. The reading of the pages that his criminal records consist of must be done with caution because they were designed to serve the purpose of supporting totalitarian communist power. The case of the group “Teodorescu Alexandru and others” must be understood in this context, when the atheist offensive of the regime was reaching its peak. The year 1958 represents the moment when the communist regime began the persecution of the Romanian Orthodox Church. As a consequence, Decree no. 410 in 1959, was adopted by the dictatorial communist regime and thus, many monasteries were closed and eight of the monks and priests having connections with “The Burning Altar” group were arrested under the most fanciful accusations, fabricated by the imagination of the Security, which guarded society against the disease of mysticism. Therefore, the purpose of this research sketch is to show how, by deepening of those pressures, the oppressive mechanism in the communist prisons conducted irremediable changes on George Văsîi’s physical and mental health, and these transformations generated the reconfiguration of his perception of the world and existence.
  • The melting point : how is the world reshaping under pressure nowadays?

    Ciocan, Tudor Cosmin; Deniz, Osman Murat; Nalaskowski, Filip (Ovidius Univesity of Constanta (Romania), 2020-11-30)
    We are witnesses to a major reshaping of our world: the World and our lives as we used to know are ending and they are reshaping constantly and drastically under pressure. Everything we knew about this world, our old habits, values, human rights, ethical patterns et all. These days, since the pandemic outburst, I saw the perceptions we have/had on religious impositions and requirements changing for an unprecedented behavior and inconsiderably reshaping religious phenomenon could have ever think of. With the title taken from the topic of this volume, Inspired by the conference titled, we have tried to envision the actual human environment through the ongoing pandemic that revolutions the entire human society in a way we had never considered as possible and so that we will not recognize in a year or so. Following the Philosophy of Dialectics and seeing a larger number of possibilities beyond those that were revealed to us in most obvious ways, we wonder thus, what makes us, in fact, do these changes – is the pandemic itself and its requirements or is it just US, humans, that were long longing for a change, a motif to do it all new again? It is though a human-divine desire to anew all from time to time and seek a reboot to all wrongness that grows in the world.
  • Intuition : a heart-based epistemology

    Lindhard, Tina (Ovidius University of Constanta (Romania), 2020-11-30)
    COVID 19 is just one more problem we humans have to face today. Crises, such as global warming, species extinction, climate change, and the extended use of anxiolytics and antidepressants by all sections of the population including youngsters, are telling us we are out of sync with Nature, and with our Self. Here, I suggest we need to change the focus of our attention from outside to inside, and from the overextended use of logical thinking mind associated with the brain to the feeling-mind linked with the heart. I associate the thinking mind with the male principle and the feeling heart-mind with the female principle. This change can bring about the necessary next step in our evolution by providing us with a way to connect with the deeper Self or Essence to obtain Higher Guidance. This epistemological way of knowing is based on intuition, and heart-based esoteric traditions throughout the ages have known about it. However, to find solutions to the multiple problems we are facing today, many more people need to learn how to tap into their heart-mind. In this article, I explore and expand on these ideas from different angles, including the scientific.
  • Neurological disorders associated to coronavirus infection

    Started as a form of atypical pneumonia concerning only a limited area in China it has become a worldwide issue that may affect our bodies entirely. Since its onset in late 2019, the Coronavirus infection has taken many shapes and forms, some of which take their toll on the nervous system. On average neurological symptoms begin 10-12 days after the flu-like ones and come in a wide range: encephalopathy and encephalitis, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy or Guillan-Barré syndrome. Pathophysiological events that lead Coronavirus infection to nervous system disorders are not completely understood- there are both para-infectious and postinfectious mechanisms tied to it. The pathogen might find its way towards the nervous system through the olfactory bulb which is its only part without dural protection, therefore, triggering a direct infection or it could induce the neurological pathology by indirect mechanisms such as hypoxia, metabolic derangements or immunological mimicry. Even though patients with this type of pathology are scarce, their state might become dire in a short time due to the cumulative effects of infection, pre-existing condition and nervous system disorders. Even though the Coronavirus issue is a recent one, medical science has been studying it thoroughly. We have researched a part of the literature regarding this topic, and we have concluded that the neurological disorders associated with this infection. Articles released after the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic that analyze this pathogen's effects regarding the nervous system were taken into consideration.
