Ventsislav Venkov, Rosen Ivanov
AbstractThis article presents the design and implementation of a Web service for assistance in process of medication prescription. The service is a part of a Real-Time Medication Monitoring (RTMM) system. Some of the most important errors in the process of medication intake occur in the process of medication prescription. This is the reason to focus on research and analysis of this process, and develop a service that helps medical staff to prescribe more precise medication therapies. One of the most important information about medication prescription is the reactions between different drugs. These reactions can be positive or negative, and the main objective of this research is to limit the negative reactions and increase the positive ones. The Web service is implemented using RESTful Java servlets and NoSQL database deployed on the Google’s public cloud infrastructure. The experimental results show that the developed service can be a useful assistant of doctors when they prescribing medication therapies.

A COGNITIVE AND COMMUNICATIVE VIEW
I. Muylle, F. Vandamme
AbstractStarting with an introduction concerning the Love versus Harmony Metaphor use in approaching Terrorism, the Harmony Metaphor is elaborated. This elaboration starts with an attempt to a formal definition of Harmony. In this framework, a lot of traditional epistemological, ontological and socio-political definitions or approaches to “Harmony” are generated, as well as a series of scales of Harmony. Attention is moreover paid to conflict resolution between different types of Harmony and the challenges of terrorism in these.
