  3. Fernando Ortiz e Allan Kardec: espiritismo e transculturação Fernando Ortiz and Allan Kardec: spiritism and transculturation

    Arcadio Díaz Quiñones

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Este ensaio explora a importância do espiritismo de Kardec para os princípios de Fernando Ortiz e para seu longo, por vezes tortuoso, inquérito que o leva à noção de "transculturação". Em seus anos de formação, Ortiz foi profundamente influenciado por Lombroso, mas também, como tantos outros escritores e intelectuais, por Kardec. Ele publicou ensaios fundamentais sobre o espiritismo, especialmente sobre as implicações da reencarnação para hierarquias espirituais e sociais. A doutrina de Kardec sobre o progresso espiritual da alma permitiu a Ortiz defender um projeto nacional mais inclusivo. O kardecismo também forneceu metáforas que correm como um fio por seus trabalhos mais importantes sobre as culturas africanas em Cuba, e também por sua poética. A "transmigração" das almas, com suas possibilidades de constantes novos princípios, permitiu a Ortiz introduzir um elemento espiritual e político na ideia de largo alcance que é a transculturação.This essay explores the importance of Kardec's Spiritism in Fernando Ortiz's beginnings and in his long, often roundabout, inquiry leading to the notion of "transculturation". In his formative years Ortiz was deeply influenced by Lombroso but also, like so many other writers and intellectuals, by Kardec. He published fundamental essays on Spiritism, especially on the implications of reincarnation for spiritual and social hierarchies. Kardec's doctrine of the spiritual progress of the soul allowed Ortiz to argue for a more inclusionary national project. Kardecism also provided metaphors that run like a thread through Ortiz's major works on African cultures in Cuba and in his poetics. The "transmigration" of the souls, with its possibilities of endless new beginnnings, enabled Ortiz to introduce a spiritual and political element into the far-ranging idea of transculturation.

  4. Miradas al último espejo: La despedida de Fernando Ortiz

    Marina Bianchi

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available In his latest book, Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz remembers people and places of their own existence. He reflects on poetry and emphasizes the importance of tradition. The past lives in words of beauty and emotion, which break the distance between past and present. The soothing power of the verses, sarcasm and irony, relieve resignation over time. The only certainty is life as a journey for the pilgrim. So enjoy the pleasures of this world including undoubtedly love. He conceives the poet's work likes the search for truth. In Miradas al último espejo, Ortiz provides relief from his poetry, says goodbye and thanks the life in a Cervantes wayFiel a los temas recurrentes en sus hondos versos elegíacos, en su último libro Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz recuerda las personas y los lugares de su existencia, canta los efectos del paso del tiempo y la precariedad de la vida, reflexiona sobre la poesía haciendo hincapié en el papel fundamental de la tradición. Lo que pertenece al pasado sobrevive aquí en unas palabras llenas de belleza y emoción, que pretenden abatir la barrera entre el hoy y el ayer: las distintas épocas se mezclan en el sentir de Ortiz y concurren juntas a guiarlo hasta el punto final. El poder lenitivo de los versos, el sarcasmo y la ironía alivian la resignación ante el fluir temporal y le ayudan a aceptar el disgregarse del ser humano en su rápido recorrido por la vida. La única certeza del peregrino es su viaje, razón por la que tiene que aprovecharlo, mostrando gratitud y gozando de los placeres de este mundo entre los que prima indudablemente el amor. Concibiendo la ardua tarea del poeta como una búsqueda de la verdad para transmitirla en sus versos, en Miradas al último espejo Ortiz avisa a sus lectores del destino que todos compartimos, aconseja sobre cómo actuar a lo largo del camino, ofrece el alivio de su poesía y se despide 'con cervantino agradecimiento de la vida'

  13. Hermes no está dentro de la estatua (El aristotelismo de Acosta

    Hugo Martel Paredes Hugo Martel Paredes

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available No solo la filosofía, sino también la política, economía, cultura y educación latinoamericanas parecen seguir la tendencia europea; sin ánimode comprender el propio mundo en torno, hay un esfuerzo por modularla realidad a las leyes y principios ajenos, cuando debería ser al revés.Esta tendencia tiene sus raíces en la definición del habitante de las tierras de ultramar durante la segunda escolástica. Cuando América fuedescubierta por los españoles, las discusiones acerca de lo que el serhumano podía ser ya estaban casi cerradas, las especies en el arca deNoé ya estaban contabilizadas, las certezas del mundo ya estaban aseguradas por los bien definidos contornos escolásticos. El sílabo de filosofía que José de Acosta propone es una interpretación de Aristóteles que linda con la heterodoxia y que, al mismo tiempo, supone un conceptodel indígena americano que, aunque no lo ubica como descendiente deAdán, permite su evangelización.

  2. Probabilistic analysis of reliability indexes of rector control system sub-system with periodic serviceability testing

    A reliability model of a system which includes a protected object and a safety system has been proposed. The model allows taking into consideration the sequence of the system elements failures resulting in the system failure, as well as periodic serviceability testing of the elements. The described procedure of asymptotic estimations obtaining the mean time to failure and the failure probability depending on time is based in the renewal theory and considerably more simple than traditionally used Markov and semi-Markov models. The model application for rector control system sub-system reliability analysis was demonstrated

    Jérôme Thomas

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Dès la conquête du Pérou achevée, les autorités espagnoles se préoccupèrent de l’éducation et de l’évangélisation des populations indiennes. Il s’agissait de leur inculquer de nouvelles normes, une nouvelle religion tout en les regroupant dans des villages pour mieux les contrôler. Dans ce contexte, d’éminents théologiens et juristes réfléchirent sur le meilleur moyen de convertir les autochtones et proposèrent une réflexion approfondie sur les problèmes liés à la conversion des indigènes. A cinquante ans de distance, José de Acosta et Juan de Solórzano Pereira furent parmi les plus importants et les plus influents penseurs de leur temps à se pencher sur ces questions cruciales.After the conquest of Peru, the Spanish authorities worried about the education and the evangelization of the Indian populations. It was a question of inculcating to them new standards, a new religion while grouping them together in villages to control them better. In this context, eminent theologians and jurists thought about the best mean to convert the natives and proposed a detailes reflection on the problems connected to the natives’ conversion. Into an interval of fifty years between him, José de Acosta and Juan de Solórzano Pereira were among the most important and influential thinkers of their time to look into these very important questions.

It is well known that most rewritings of the classical myths have been faithful to the “official truth” of the original versions. But recent works in search of other meanings, have explored dimensions often hidden or blurred by the “official” version. This is the case of the short stories in this collection whose protagonists are six archetypal or mythical women and their respectful references to the biblical, Homeric and pictorial world: Eve, Circe, Penelope, Betsabé, Salomé and Gioconda. The perspective offered by Lourdes Ortiz about the history of these myths allows us to read the story from the point of view of her female heroines. As such, then, in this article I will focus on two female characters from the Homeric epic: Circe and Penelope.El propósito de este artículo es explorar las representaciones míticas en dos de los seis cuentos que componen Voces de mujer (2007, de Lourdes Ortiz, publicado anteriormente bajo el título Los Motivos de Circe. Es bien sabido que la mayoría de las reescrituras de los mitos clásicos han sido fieles a la “verdad oficial” de las versiones originales. Sin embargo, trabajos recientes han explorado las dimensiones a menudo silenciadas por la versión “oficial”. Este es el caso de los cuentos de esta colección cuyas protagonistas son seis mujeres arquetípicas o míticas, y sus referencias con el mundo bíblico, homérico y pictórico: Eva, Circe, Penélope, Betsabé, Salomé y Gioconda. La perspectiva ofrecida por Lourdes Ortiz sobre estos mitos nos permite leer la historia desde el punto de vista de sus heroínas femeninas. Este artículo se centra en dos personajes femeninos de la épica de Homero: Circe y Penélope.

  15. Irrupción y metamorfosis: la imagen en la poesía de Mario Ortiz. Para una crítica poética

    Ana Porrúa

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available La poesía de Mario Ortiz podría pensarse como una escritura crítica dentro de la poesía argentina de los 90, o al menos de su gesto objetivista y su gesto realista. El modo de la crítica es la imagen en tanto irrupción, advenimiento de la imaginación (imago, en el sentido que le da Didi-Huberman que parte, en estos casos, de lo concreto, incluso de lo nimio. La fuerza de la imagen en tanto proceso en la poesía de Ortiz establece un movimiento que le devuelve a los objetos de uso su aura, a la vez que sostiene su definición materialista; un doblez en el que, además, se construye el relicario, la miniatura e incluso la colección. A la vez, puede leerse esta aparición de la imagen como migración y metamorfosis de los objetos tal como aparecen en los poemas más objetivistas y como revisión de sus colecciones

    Full Text Available The following paper approaches Fernando Ortiz’s thought through his book El engaño de las razas (1946. The cuban author proposes an anthropology free from the distinctive and discriminatory criterion of races, free from the use of the word “race”. This work, which implies a decidedly critical conception of history, is linked to the reflection on “transculturation”, and in a certain extent, a continuation of it.

Esta obra, que supone una concepción plenamente crítica de la historia, resulta inseparable de la reflexión sobre la “transculturación”, y en cierta medida, la prolonga.

    Juan José GÓMIZ LEÓN

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available The «universal» water treatment, advocated and defended by Seville’s appointed official doctor, Juan Vázquez de Cortés, was strongly contested and refuted by the Galenist José Ortiz Barroso, an important member of the Royal Medical Society of Seville, generating a controversy that culminated in a series of publications that appeared in Seville from 1735 to 1740. The controversy went beyond the local level and was echoed by the philosopher monks Benito Feijoo and Juan de Nájera, who also actively took sides. In this contribution, rather than critically review the related texts, we analyze the criticisms, opinions and approvals of the anonymous or figuratively signed papers, comparing them to Father Feijoo’s literary work and personal approach.

Los resultados son que la gente de Acosta considera la LC como una entidad nosológica diferenciada, pero se interesan sobre todo en sus manifestaciones clínicas en los niños (que son los más afectados, así como en su propia capacidad de acción mediante remedios populares. La idea de medidas de control sobre los reservorios, los vectores o el contexto espacio-temporal del contacto no asoma espontáneamente en el pensamiento de la gente. Sin embargo, la LC se percibe como una disrupción en el espacio doméstico y peridoméstico, considerado seguro; medidas de control que intervengan en ese ámbito podrían pues tener buenas posibilidades de éxito.

  8. Approaches to Climate Change & Health in Cuba: Guillermo Mesa MD MPhil, Director, Disasters & Health, National School of Public Health. Paulo Ortiz MS PhD, Senior Researcher, Climate Center, Cuban Meteorology Institute.

    Mesa, Guillermo; Ortiz, Paulo; Gorry, Conner

    2015-04-01

    The US National Institutes of Health predict climate change will cause an additional 250,000 deaths between 2030 and 2050, with damages to health costing US$2-$4 billion by 2030. Although much debate still surrounds climate change, island ecosystems-such as Cuba's-in the developing world are arguably among the most vulnerable contexts in which to confront climate variability. Beginning in the 1990s, Cuba launched research to develop the evidence base, set policy priorities, and design mitigation and adaptation actions specifically to address climate change and its effects on health. Two researchers at the forefront of this interdisciplinary, intersectoral effort are epidemiologist Dr Guillermo Mesa, who directed design and implementation of the nationwide strategy for disaster risk reduction in the Cuban public health system as founding director of the Latin American Center for Disaster Medicine (CLAMED) and now heads the Disasters and Health department at the National School of Public Health; and Dr Paulo Ortiz, a biostatistician and economist at the Cuban Meteorology Institute's Climate Center (CENCLIM), who leads the research on Cuba's Climate and Health project and is advisor on climate change and health for the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

    Full Text Available Staphylococcus aureus es un microorganismo con habilidad de infectar diferentes tejidos celulares, por portar genes que le confieren resistencia a antibióticos, factores de virulencia y su plasticidad genética, que podrían contribuir a una progresión rápida y complicada de la enfermedad. El Paraguay no cuenta con datos epidemiológicos que indiquen los factores de virulencia que presentan las cepas de S. aureus, por lo que el objetivo del trabajo fue determinar un perfil de virulencia detectando los genes codificantes de: hemolisinas α y β, enterotoxinas A, B, C, D, H y toxinas exfoliativas A y B. Este estudio observacional descriptivo de corte transverso, con muestreo no probabilístico de casos consecutivos, incluyó 50 aislados de S. aureus obtenidos a partir de muestras clínicas de secreciones de piel, partes blandas o líquidos corporales de pacientes menores de 17 años que concurrieron al Hospital General Pediátrico Niños de Acosta Ñú durante el año 2.010. Las reacciones de PCR incluyeron la detección de los genes: sea+seb+sec+ADNr16S, hlA+hlB, eta+etb, sed y seh. El 82% de los aislados provenía de niños que presentaron cuadros clínicos compatibles con infecciones de piel y partes blandas y el 18% de cuadros clínicos graves como sepsis, osteomielitis y neumonías. Los aislados contaban con datos de portación de Leucocidina de Panton-Valentine, el cual fue el factor de virulencia más frecuentemente detectado (58%, seguido de las hemolisinas alfa (16% y beta (8%. Las enterotoxinas y las toxinas exfoliativas fueron menos frecuentes (0-2%, y no se detectaron genes codificantes de las enterotoxinas C y D.

  2. The International Marketing Target of Fuel Element for Research Rectors

    The International marketing efforts of PT BATAN Teknologi's fuel element for research reactors are out line. These efforts intensively started in third year marketing time since it is commenced on 24 May 1996. The market segmentation told that there are 269 research reactors in the world, I.e. 65 in USA, 27 in Russia, 18 in Japan, and the remaining are in many Countries. Many of those are 78 swimming fool type reactors, and 17 of them, I.e. 4 in Japan, 4 in USA, and each Austria, Germany, Argentina, Iran, Pakistan, Peru, Brazil, Algeria and Indonesia have the similar fuel element specifications with are close related with PT BATAN Teknologi's. It can be predicated that around 38 fuel elements and 84 fuel control can be marketed. The first feasibility study told that for countries such as Peru, Pakistan, Iran, Algeria, became the potential marketing target of the BATAN Teknologi's fuel element, because for those countries the competitors in producing such fuel elements could be minimal. The fuel elements and fuel control which could be presumably marketed in those countries are 83 and 19 respectively. The problem will be facing in near future such as packaging design and nuclear fuel transportation have to be firstly solved by collaborating with foreign companies abroad. Non technical problems including political situation have to be completely studied in order the uranium, transfer to many countries for exporting purpose could easily take place in the future. The government of the Republic of Indonesia (in this case BATAN) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) could assist to solve the non technical problems which might be appear in the future as the chance of the exporting the fuel elements and the fuel controls come true.

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo ofrece una revisión de las prioridades educativas de los gobier-nos desde la creación del Estado liberal italiano hasta la actualidad. Tras una breve introducción, el artículo se centra en la reforma de la secundaria inferior inspirada en el principio de igualdad de oportunidades que tuvo lugar en 1962. Sin embargo esta reforma no se acompañó de reformas en los niveles superiores de la secundaria. A partir de mediados de los años 70, en plena crisis económi-ca, el principio de igualdad de oportunidades sigue vigente pero surge la preo-cupación por la calidad educativa. Esta nueva exigencia ha inspirado la apro-bación de reformas tales como la de la administración; concesión de la autonomía, reformas universitarias etc. El punto de inflexión más importante se produce en la década de los noventa cuando se aprueban numerosas refor-mas que tiene como prioridad diversificar la enseñanza con el fin de que nadie abandone el sistema educativo sin obtener una cualificación e introducir el aprendizaje y formación a lo largo de la vida en el sistema educativo italiano

  9. An innovative approach to dynamics modeling and simulation of the molten salt rector experiment

    The Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE) was a circulating fuel thermal reactor built and operated in the sixties. As the only Molten Salt Reactor (MSR) testing facility for which extensive experimental data are available, it can be considered as a reference for the development of modeling approaches for the studies related to the Gen-IV MSR. In this work, a geometric multi-scale approach has been adopted for the simulation of the MSRE plant. The data and the experimental results relative to the U-233 fuelled reactor are considered. The neutronic parameters have been determined using the Monte Carlo code Serpent. The reactor core is divided into three radial regions, each one described by a 3D channel in which Navier-Stokes and energy conservation equations plus delayed neutron precursors (DNP) balance equations are solved. Determination of the generated power is obtained employing a point kinetics like equation, fed with importance weighted values of temperatures and DNP concentrations. The remaining part of the plant, that includes the primary and secondary cooling circuits, is modeled by means of zero-dimensional components. The results attained with such modeling approach are compared with experimental data both in time and frequency domain, showing good agreement. The adopted approach, thanks to the punctual, coupled solution of the governing equations in the core, gives better insights into the thermal behavior of the graphite and its effects on MSR dynamics than commonly used correlation-based solvers.

    Artur Almeida de Ataíde

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available Taking as a starting point some excerpts from the Sermão da Sexagésima, by Fr. António Vieira, this paper investigates what role the development of rhetoric in the Baroque period might have played in the articulation of a new language pattern, always about to dismantle substancialist views about the world. Based upon some unexpected parallels, as the sole names of Homer, Pindar and Torquato Tasso may suggest, it is argued that the tension between rhetorical world and ontological world is so decisive for understanding Baroque as the tension between the earthly and the divine.

    Full Text Available En los últimos años se está observando un crecimiento en el número de trabajos que analizan la situación de las mujeres en los órganos de gobierno de las organizaciones tanto lucrativas como de las entidades enmarcadas en el ámbito de la economía social. Si bien la literatura económica es incipiente y más abundante fuera de nuestras fronteras cada vez es mayor el número de publicaciones que estudian la situación en España. De acuerdo con Mateos Escot y Gimeno (2006 en las llamadas sociedades de participación democrática la implicación directa de las mujeres en la gestión es mayor que en otro tipo de organizaciones. Sin embargo, los estudios realizados muestran una desigual participación de las mujeres directivas en el perfil de estas entidades (Berenguer, Cerver, de la Torre y Torcal, 2004. Un mayor número de mujeres en los consejos representativos de las cooperativas puede ayudar a que las condiciones de trabajo mejoren y se consiga un equilibrio económico, social y cultural en este tipo de organizaciones (Fregidou-Malama, 2004. En este estudio se analiza la presencia femenina en los órganos de gobierno de estas entidades y se compara con los tipos de cooperativas gestionadas por mujeres con el propósito de examinar si existen asociaciones entre ellas. Al mismo tiempo, se relaciona el periodo de creación de la entidad con la participación femenina, con el fin de observar la evolución de la responsabilidad de las mujeres en distintos intervalos de tiempo. / In the last years, the number of works that analyse the situation of women on boars of directors in the profit and not for profit organizations has increased. Although the literature is scary and more extended out of Spain the number of studies in our country is increasing. According to Mateos, Escot and Gimeno (2006 in the called democratic participation companies the direct implication of women in management is bigger than in others organizations. However, some studies show an unequal participation of women in the management of these entities (Berenguer, Cerver, de la Torre y Torcal, 2004. A bigger number of women on boards of cooperatives can help to improve the employ conditions and to get an economic, social and cultural balance in this type of organizations (Fregidou-Malama, 2004. In this paper we analyze the presence of women on the boards of these entities and we compare with the types of cooperatives managed by women with the aim of check if there are associations among them. At the same time, we connect the time of starting the cooperative with the female participation to seek the evolution of the responsibility of women in different interval.

  17. Homogenization and two scales convergence of some stationary and non-stationary heat transfer problems, application to gas cooled nuclear rectors

    We are interested in the homogenization of heat transfer in periodic porous media modelling the geometry of a gas cooled nuclear reactor. This geometry is made of a solid media perforated by several long thin parallel cylinders, the diameter of which is of the same order than the period. The heat is transported by conduction in the solid part of the domain and by conduction, convection and radiative transfer in the fluid part (the cylinders). A non-local boundary condition models the radiative heat transfer on the cylinder walls. It is a stationary analysis corresponding to a nominal performance of the reactor core, and also non-stationary corresponding to a normal shut-down of the core. To obtain the homogenized problem we first use a formal two-scale asymptotic expansion method. The mathematical justification of our results is based on the notion of two-scale convergence. One feature of this work in dimension 3 is that it combines homogenization with a 3D to 2D asymptotic analysis since the radiative transfer in the limit cell problem is purely two-dimensional. A second feature of this work is the study of this heat transfer when it contains an oscillating thermal source at the microscopic level and a thermal exchange with the perforations. In this context, our numerical analysis shows a non-negligible contribution of the second order corrector which helps us to model the gradients appearing between the source area and the perforations.

    Hace unos pocos días la prensa nos contaba como dos ingenios atómicos estallaban en Atolones del Pacífico, esas dos explosiones conmovían al mundo y la onda explosiva de esas dos bombas de hidrógeno tocaron a los académicos de todas partes. Desafortunadamente pocos se sintieron en Colombia, pero llegaron al corazón de Europa y de Asia; tocaron al mundo y tocaron a los académicos que de alguna manera habían sido sus creadores. Esas dos bombas de hidrógeno eran apenas los experimentos hechos por una misión de varios que las tienen y apenas son experimentos de muchos que comenzaron siendo experimentos sobre seres humanos. Dos bombas atómicas habían explotado ya hace 50 años, mas o menos para los mismos días, sobre dos ciudades del Japón, una de ellas disparada a las ocho y cuarto de la mañana, cuando la gente iba al trabajo, y se encontraba fuera de los refugios antiaéreos; apenas unos pocos bombarderos, en una ciudad que estaba acostumbrada a ver oleada tras oleada de bombarderos; para no despertar temor la lanzaron a la altura necesaria para producir la mayor destrucción posible; eso lo habían hecho académicos.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo examina dos novelas y una biografía publicadas a mediados de los noventa que construyen imágenes de Eva Perón a partir de textos de la época y de la sucesivas recreaciones que se han hecho desde entonces. Aunque utilizan las mismas fuentes y hasta las mismas anécdotas, estos relatos ofrecen retratos considerablemente diferentes y no sólo por razones ideológicas. En una época como la actual, en la que el cientista social o el novelista tienen conciencia de que no pueden hablar por el otro, y menos en el caso de un personaje histórico sobre el que se ha construido una mitología, la modalidad narrativa adquiere especial importancia. Mientras en un caso se destruye toda pretensión de recuperar la verdad (Santa Evita, los otros dos relatos confían en la posibilidad de proponer nuevas interpretaciones. Estas representaciones evocan también consideraciones de género, es decir, revelan una conciencia de que se representa a una mujer que transgredió los cánones de su época logrando transformarse en líder de un movimiento político. Si bien es cierto que la intimidad de Eva continúa siendo elusiva, los tres relatos nos permiten entender desde nuestro tiempo la vida de una mujer que se definió a sí misma y cuyas decisiones tuvieron consecuencias realesThis essay examines two novels and a biography published in the mid-90s that construct images of Eva Perón originating in texts of her own time and in successive recreations that have been done since then. Although the same sources and even the same anecdotes are recalled, these narratives offer considerably different portraits, and not just for ideological reasons. In an age such as ours, in which the social scientist and the novelist realize that they cannot speak for the other, and much less in the case of a historical figure who has become a myth, the discursive modality adopted acquires special significance. While in one case, that of Santa Evita, there is no illusion of recovering the true story, in the other two narratives there is a hint that new interpretations may be posited. These representations evoke also gender considerations, for they reveal an awareness that the character being represented is a woman who transgressed the notions of what it meant to be a woman, transforming herself into the leader of a political movement. Even if it is true that Eva's persona continues to be elusive, the three narratives allow us to understand from our own times the life of a woman who was able to define herself, and whose decisions had real consequences

Following the methodology of textual analysis, we reviewed the National Programs of Education, documents that embed the academic plan at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, and the curricula of licenciaturas in the areas of natural science and engineering and technology. It was identified that the core elements of university education are social compromise, professional competence, and education in values. Our findings indicate that there is textual correspondence among the most relevant categories of the documents; however, it is worth pointing out the absence of strategies that explicitly promote student development of professional-ethic values.

Para el análisis, primero se busca determinar si existe correlación entre las variables de estudio. Posteriormente, se obtiene el índice de correlación simple entre las mismas. Los resultados muestran una correlación muy alta entre cada una de las variables. Además, se realiza este mismo procedimiento segmentando a las universidades según su ubicación, en la Región Metropolitana o en regiones y si son estatales o no, obteniendo resultados similares. De forma complementaria, se realiza un análisis con la técnica de regresión lineal simple en donde se obtiene que sólo un pequeño porcentaje de las publicaciones científicas provenientes de las instituciones pertenecientes el CRUCH estarían siendo publicadas por otro tipo de investigadores. The pursuit of knowledge as one of the main focuses of universities is closely related to quality. To materialize this concept in establishing the relationship of scienti­fic production in Chile, quality of faculty and Direct Fiscal Funding (AFD destinated to universities belonging to the CRUCH, is the aim of this research. For analysis, a scatter plot is created to intuitively determine if there is a correlation between the study variables. Subsequently, the rate of simple correlation is obtained between the same variables, which results in a very high correlation between each one of the variables. In addition, this same procedure is performed after segmenting universities by location, in the metropolitan area or other regions, and by being state-owned or not, obtaining similar results. To complement this, an analysis with simple linear regression technique is performed, with the results of only a small percentage of scienti­fic publications from the universities of CRUCH, being published by other types of investigators.

    This paper presents the results of the first experimental phase in a pilot plant after analysing the potential of different configurations of the membrane bioreactor process. The pilot was fed with raw wastewater from Valdebebas WWTP in Madrid , and consists of abiological reactor of 2,5 m''3 and a membrane tank of 0.75 m''3 containing a module of flat submerged membranes from Kubota. The size for anaerobic, anoxic and aerated zones, as well as the flow rate for the recycles, were established from the simulation study. Targeting compact full scale plants, the solid and hydraulic retention times were maintained at low values (12 days and 8 hours respectively) and the suspended solids in the membrane tank between 10 and 15 g/l. Thus, an efficient nitrification was achieved which was a even better than expected by simulation. Effluent nitrate were between 6 and 8 mg/l by operating with low dissolved oxygen levels in the aerated zone. Phosphorous removal was also satisfactory with effluent phosphate below 1 mg P/l.

En una segunda parte se pretende refutar la idea de que los Estados de bienestar atentan contra la acumulación capitalista y afectan el crecimiento y la competitividad económica. Dada la realidad que se vive en algunos de los países de América Latina, en donde los gobiernos han puesto en práctica políticas distantes del neoliberalismo, es conveniente realizar una comparación, en términos de los resultados que afectan a la población, con lo que sucede en México, país en que únicamente a partir de la ceguera de los líderes políticos se mantiene el mismo modelo económico que tan graves consecuencias está causando a la mayoría de la población. Teniendo en cuenta que ningún acuerdo puede estar por encima de las necesidades de la gente, la conclusión no puede ser otra que constatar que en México los gobernantes que han dirigido y dirigen al país durante largo tiempo, cuya preocupación es contraria a la nación, a su población, su interés radica en preservar los intereses de las grandes corporaciones y seguir los preceptos del gobierno norteamericano y sus distintos organismos, en contraste con lo que está sucediendo en países de América Latina, donde se han construido los cimientos sobre los que puede edificarse un país verdaderamente independiente. This paper aims to list some of the results observed from the implementation of neoliberal policies in the Mexican reality, emphasizing the return of the PRI government since 2012. In the second part is intended to refute the idea that welfare states undermine capitalist accumulation and affect economic growth and competitiveness. Given the reality that exists in some countries of Latin America, where governments have distant neoliberal policies, it should make a comparison in terms of the results that affect the population, with what happens in Mexico, a country that only from the blindness of political leaders the same economic model that is causing such serious consequences for the majority of the population remains. Given that no agreement can be above the needs of the people the conclusion can’t be other than to note that in Mexico the rulers who have led and lead the country for a long time, whose concern is contrary to the nation, to its population, its interest lies in preserving the interests of large corporations and follow the precepts of the American government and its various agencies, in contrast to what is happening in Latin America, where they have built the foundation on which it can build an truly independent country.

    Ortiz begins with research showing that safe, healthy, and uncrowded school facilities are a basic ingredient of a good educational program. When teachers work in well-designed and highly functional school buildings, they are able to be more effective than when they must teach in inadequate facilities. Ortiz sets these findings against the evidence that a high proportion of California’s educational facilities are inadequate because they are crowded, old, and in need of repair and modernizatio...

  11. The tragedy of the ñáñigos: Genesis of an unpublished book

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available Reconstructs Fernando Ortiz' s anthropological study on Afro-Cuban culture since the early 20th c., in particular on the Abakuá male secret societies, also called "ñañigos", with origins in African societies in the Calabar region. Author describes how Ortiz developed from earlier positivist, criminological approaches to broader, appreciative studies of Afro-Cuban culture, with a lasting interest in the Abakuá societies. Ortiz studied several aspects of Abakuá and collected much data and information, and referred to Abakuá aspects in works from the 1930s and 1940s, and wrote articles on specific Abakuá aspects in the 1950s. Author shows how Ortiz from 1917 onward in his correspondence stated repeatedly to fellow-scholars his goal of writing a comprehensive, extensive monograph on Abakuá, for which he collected much information during his life. In the 1950s he cooperated for this purpose with Vera Rubin from Columbia University. Author points out, however, how this monograph on Abakuá, while probably written by Ortiz at the end of his life, and seen by some, cannot be found in the present.

  1. Should universities be subsidized? – A reference point view

    Eva Berde

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Because of the central importance of higher education and its long-turn positive extern effects on the whole society, the government often might wish to enforce its will on the universities through the subsidy it provides to them. Thus the question arises: what are the welfare consequences of state subsidies offered to universities? I try to answer this question with the recently developed tools of the so-called reference point theory, established by Oliver Hart and his coauthors. In my model the two participants are the government and the university. The university is controlled exclusively by a rector and the representative of the government is the administrator. The objective of the administrator is to maximize public welfare, whereas the rector maximizes her own payoff. The administrator offers a subsidy that comes together with the obligation to fulfill the state's instructions. Since these ‘handcuffs’ are usually against the rector's own interest, but subsidy is valuable to the rector, there is a tradeoff. I investigate the optimal behavior of the rector in two cases: a private university and a state owned public university. In spite of the simplified assumptions, this setup undoubtedly shows the ambiguous nature of subsidies.

  17. Derecho internacional y derecho civil: una teoría de acción comunicativa para difundir el evangelio

    Hernán Neira

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available En Los indios recién descubiertos (1538, Francisco de Vitoria afirma que hay una comunicación y sociedad natural entre todos los seres humanos. Cuarenta anos después, en Lima, el jesuita JOSÉ DE Acosta, en Sobre la salvación de los indios (1576, escribe una suerte de informe sobre cómo poner en práctica esta comunicación por medio de métodos pacificos de predicación. Es un tipo de tratado de comunicación, en el cual denuncia la práctica de las conversiones forzadas. Para Acosta, el éxito de la comunicación del evangelio a los indios supone un cambio voluntario de creencias y acciones, basado en lo que él considera la razón natural. Esta discusión filosófica y teológica muestra que hay un entretejido normativo entre el ius gentium, ius civile y ley eclesiástica, y que la actual teoria de la comunicación tiene mucho que aprender de este caso paradigmático y parcialmente fracasado de comunicación del evangelio en América.In On the Recently Discovered American Indians (1538, Francisco de Vitoria states that there is natural communication and society among all human beings. Forty years later, in Lima, the Jesuit JOSÉ DE Acosta, in On the Salvation of the Indians (1576, writes a report about how to put into practice this communication through peaceful preaching. It is a kind of communication treatise, in which he also denounces the practice of forcing conversions. To Acosta, successful communication of the gospel to Indians signifies a willing shift of beliefs and actions, based on what he considers natural reason. This philosophical and theological discussion shows that there is a normative interweaving between ius gentium, ius civile and ecclesiastic law, and that a contemporary theory of communication has a lot to learn from the paradigmatic and partially failed case of communicating the gospel in America.

El trabajo del Dr. Solón Núñez, era redireccionado por el del Dr. Acosta Guzmán, hacia la Corte Suprema de Justicia. El paradigma ingles del Dr. Núñez por la Medicatura Forense, se enfrentaba al paradigma alemán del Dr. Acosta por el Organismo Médico Forense, este paradigma superó al de 1949. Hubo que hacer arreglos y convenios, lo nuevo no era completo, ni perfecto, ni absoluto, pero obedecía a un imaginario social instituyente. La cooperación entre ambas instituciones se creó en los sitios donde no habían Médicos Forenses del Poder Judicial. Cuando la Medicina Legal se separe del Organismo de Investigación Judicial (O.I.J los puentes de cooperación y amistad se sobre pondrán a las dificultades con el nuevo paradigma permitiendo avizorar los nuevos horizontes kuhnianos, en los que se recrean y refrescan las ciencias forenses.When the Forensic Medic Organism was created in 1965, Forensic Medicature was all ready part of the Health Ministry since 1949.

He first became a professor of Tropical Hygiene and later a professor of Hygiene and Medical Enforcement. He discovered the role of house rats in the dissemination of the plague, which contributed to the fight against an epidemic on Java, then the Netherlands' East Indies, in 1911. He was rector of the University of Amsterdam at the outbreak of the Second World War and was fired because of his anti-German stance. From the offices of the Nederlandsch Tijdschrift voor Geneeskunde (Dutch Journal of Medicine), he developed plans for reconstructing the university after the war; he later became the university's first post-war rector. Van Loghem contributed to columns in this journal for over 40 years and twice acted as interim editor-in-chief. PMID:18225796

    Sanjurjo, A.; Nanis, L.; Kapur, V. K.; Weaver, R. D.

    1983-01-01

    When high purity silicon is synthesized by reduction of silicon tetrafluoride by sodium, very-fast highly exothermic reaction takes place. Controlled reaction is proposed in which SiF4-pressurized vertical reactor operates with two temperature zones. Liquid sodium feeds from nozzle at top of rector without reacting with SiF4. When sodium reaches higher temperature region at bottom, reaction takes place immediately.

  15. Waves for Alpha-Channeling in Mirror Machines

    A. I. Zhmoginov and N. J. Fisch

    2009-07-08

    Alpha-channeling can, in principle, be implemented in mirror machines via exciting weaklydamped modes in the ion cyclotron frequency range with perpendicular wavelengths smaller than the alpha particle gyroradius. Assuming quasi-longitudinal or quasi-transverse wave propagation, we search systematically for suitable modes in mirror plasmas. Considering two device designs, a proof-of-principle facility and a fusion rector prototype, we in fact identify candidate modes suitable for alpha-channeling.

    Background Impairment in social functioning following psychosis is associated with negative symptoms, particularly reduced motivation (Foussias & Remington, 2010). Cognitive models of negative symptoms propose that expectancy appraisals are involved in the expression and maintenance of negative symptoms (Rector, Beck, & Stolar, 2005; Staring & Van der Gaag, 2010). Theories of motivation (e.g. expectancy-value theory; Eccles and Wigfield 2002) describe how self-efficacy beliefs, appraisals ...

  5. City’s lost jewel. History of Cracow’a All Saints church till the end of XVI century

    Katarzyna Walczak

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available One of the oldest churches in Krakow, dedicated to All Saints, was situated between Grodzka and Franciszkańska Street. It was build in the XIII century, could had been replacement church for first Cracow’s parish, which was transferred from Saint Trinity church. The name of All Saints church was mentioned for the first time in Vita S. Stanislai. The second time in 1278 his rector Arnold was noted. Most interesting fact is that in the Tables of Pence from 1325–1327 you can find two rectors, who had separate salary and were called rectors of wooden and brick churches. In 1490 church got a collegiate title. Than double rectory was liquidated and positions of provost and dean were established. Church was a place where Brotherhood of the Poor created by Bishop Zbigniew Oleśnicki used to work. Our knowledge of churches looks comes from iconography which was made when the building was already a ruin. According to those sources church had two naves, was oriented and had simply completed presbytery. The building had adhered tower, sacristy, treasure and chapel, called capella antiqua. Description of the interior of the church comes from 1599, when Jerzy Radziwiłł, Bishop of Cracow had visited it. According to the decision of the City Beautification Committee, the church was demolished in 1835, and church’s equipment was sold on auction. The tower survived till 1840, when it shared the fate of the rest of the building.

  7. The low frequency Western Mediterranean summer variability: relevance, feedbacks and predictability.

    Jose, Ortizbevia Maria; Antonio, Ruizdeelvira; Francisco Jose, Alvarez-Garcia; Miguel, Tasambay-Salazar

    2016-04-01

    In a recent study, OrtizBeviá et al. (2012) have defined a seasonal index, the Western Mediterranean Index, in order to characterize the Western Mediterranean summer variability. They have found there a statistically significant feedback between the Mediterranean and the North Pacific variability, characterized by the Pacific North America Mode Index. They have detected also a feedback between the Western Mediterranean in summer and the variability of some areas of the North Atlantic basin. Based on these statistical linear relationship they proposed a model to forecast the part of the Western Mediterranean variability represented by the Western Mediterranean Index in summer and autumn and validate it through some hindcast experiments, with a moderate, but significant skill. OrtizBeviá et al.(2012) presented also the evidence of the existence of a low frequency, multidecadal component in the Western Mediterranean summer variability. In the work to be presented here we extend the previous one, focusing on the long term variability. We perform similar statistical analysis on selected data fields that span more than 100 years. We add a second index to the characterisation of the Western Mediterranean variability and are then able to show the relevance of the Western Mediterranean summer variability for european air temperature and precipitation seasonal anomalies. Our analyses show that the variability represented by two North Atlantic Indexes play a key role in the Western Mediterranean summer variability. They also proof the existence of a feedback between this variability and that of the Pacific North America Mode, for an extended period of more than 140 years. The performance of the different predictive models built on the basis of those linear relationships are tested in a series of hindcast experiments. References Ortiz Beviá, M. J.; Alvarez García

  13. Beyond Panglossian Optimism: Larger N2 Amplitudes Probably Signal a Bilingual Disadvantage in Conflict Monitoring

    Kenneth R. Paap

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available In this special issue on the brain mechanisms that lead to cognitive benefits of bilingualism we discussed six reasons why it will be very difficult to discover those mechanisms. Many of these problems apply to the article by Fernandez, Acosta, Douglass, Doshi, and Tartar that also appears in the special issue. These concerns include the following: 1 an overly optimistic assessment of the replicability of bilingual advantages in behavioral studies, 2 reliance on risky small samples sizes, 3 failures to match the samples on demographic characteristics such as immigrant status, and 4 language group differences that occur in neural measures (i.e., N2 amplitude, but not in the behavioral data. Furthermore the N2 amplitude measure in general suffers from valence ambiguity: larger N2 amplitudes reported for bilinguals are more likely to reflect poorer conflict resolution rather than enhanced inhibitory control.

  16. Critical current density and ac harmonic voltage generation in YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin films by the screening technique

    The temperature and field dependence of harmonics in voltage Vn=Vn'-iVn'' using the screening technique have been measured for YBa2Cu3O7-δ superconducting thin films. Using the Sun model we obtained the curves for the temperature-dependent critical current density Jc(T). In addition, we applied the criterion proposed by Acosta et al. to compute Jc(T). Also, we made used of the empirical law Jc∝(1-T/Tc)n as an input in our calculations to reproduce experimental harmonic generation up to the fifth harmonic. We found that most models fit well the fundamental voltage but higher harmonics are poorly reproduced. Such behavior suggests the idea that higher harmonics contain information concerning complex processes like flux creep or thermally assisted flux flow.

Trata-se de uma desconstrução de enunciados que identificam tais mulheres ora com o sagrado, ora com o profano, - reveladores das concepções espanholas de gênero e religião que presidiram a construção das diferenças, desigualdades, hierarquias e relações entre incas e espanhóis, e entre homens e mulheres no processo de conquista e colonização dos incas.This article presents an analysis of the representations of the priestesses of the sun - the acclas - transmitted in the chronicles of three Spaniards of the sixteenth's century: the Jesuit José de Acosta, the Crown's official Sarmiento of Gamboa and the mercedarian friar Martín de Murúa. It is a study of statements that identify such women sometimes with the sacred, other times with the profane, and they disclose the Spanish conceptions of gender and religion that presided over the construction of the differences, inequalities, hierarchies and relationships among Incas and Spaniards, and among men and women, in the process of colonization of the Incas.

  20. Molecular characterization of trichomonads isolated from animal hosts in the Philippines.

    Dimasuay, Kris Genelyn B; Rivera, Windell L

    2013-09-23

    Trichomonads are amitochondrial anaerobic flagellated protists that are either parasites or commensals, generally living in the digestive or genitourinary tract of humans and animals. It has been reported that these protozoa can migrate to other sites in their target host, can adapt to new hosts, and are capable of zoonotic transmission. In this study, 59 trichomonad isolates from different animal hosts in the Philippines were identified and characterized. Primer sets were designed and were successful in amplifying the 18S rRNA gene sequences of the isolates. Phylogenetic trees were constructed using neighbor-joining (NJ), maximum parsimony (MP), maximum-likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) analyses. Results showed that BLAST analysis of the isolates corresponded to the clustering of the isolates together with reference sequences in the constructed ML tree. Cattle and pig isolates were most likely Tetratrichomonas buttreyi, which were observed to be commensal in both animals. All duck and rooster isolates were similar with Tetratrichomonas gallinarum. All dog isolates together with single isolates from boa, goat, and owl were identical to Pentatrichomonas hominis. Occurrence of P. hominis in Boa constrictor imperator (boa) and Otus megalotis (Philippine scops owl) suggested the adaptation of the trichomonad to new hosts. Reptile hosts were observed to harbor Trichomitus batrachorum or Hypotrichomonas acosta. Three reptile isolates (Igu2, Igu4, and Liz7) suggest novel species belonging to Class Hypotrichomonadea. Furthermore, iguanas were infected with T. batrachorum or H. acosta. Trichomonads in animal hosts are commensal and the mode of transmission is via fecal-oral route. They are capable of adaptation to new hosts and therefore, zoonotic transmission is possible as well as pathogenesis in host. Thus, trichomonads can pose threats to the health of humans and animals.

  2. A synthesis and review of geomorphic surfaces of the boundary zone Mt. Taylor to Lucero uplift area, West-Central New Mexico

    Wells, S.G. [NEOTEC, Inc., Albuquerque, NM (United States)

    1989-01-01

    The Mt. Taylor volcanic field and Lucero uplift of west-central New Mexico occur in a transitional-boundary zone between the tectonically active Basin-and Range province (Rio Grande rift) and the less tectonically active Colorado plateau. The general geomorphology and Cenozoic erosional history has been discussed primarily in terms of a qualitative, descriptive context and without the knowledge of lithospheric processes. The first discussion of geomorphic surfaces suggested that the erosional surface underlying the Mt. Taylor volcanic rocks is correlative with the Ortiz surface of the Rio Grande rift. In 1978 a study supported this hypothesis with K-Ar dates on volcanic rocks within each physiographic province. The correlation of this surface was a first step In the regional analysis of the boundary zone; however, little work has been done to verify this correlation with numerical age dates and quantitatively reconstruct the surface for neotectonic purposes. Those geomorphic surfaces inset below and younger than the ``Ortiz`` surface have been studied. This report provides a summary of this data as well as unpublished data and a conceptual framework for future studies related to the LANL ISR project.

    Full Text Available Madeleine Oliver,1 Christopher Chiodo Ortiz,2 Jorge Ortiz31University of Toledo College of Medicine, Toledo, OH, 2Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, 3Department of Transplant Surgery, University of Toledo Medical Center, Toledo, OH, USA Abstract: Caring for liver transplant patients suffering from chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV infection is a challenging task for transplant surgeons and primary physicians alike. HCV is the leading cause of liver transplantation in the USA and comes with a myriad of complications that increase morbidity and mortality. This review focuses on patient follow-up, spanning from before the liver transplant occurs to the patient's long-term health. Pretransplant, both donor and recipient variables, must be carefully chosen to ensure optimal surgical success. Risk factors must be identified and HCV viral load must be reduced to a minimum. In addition to standard transplant complications, HCV patients suffer from additional problems, such as fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis and widespread viremia. Physicians must focus on the balance of immunosuppressive and antiviral medications, while considering possible side effects from these potent drugs. Over the years following surgery, physicians must identify any signs of failing liver health, as HCV-positive patients have an increased risk for cirrhosis and certain life-threatening malignancies. Keywords: liver transplant, hepatitis C virus, postoperative, cirrhosis, donor and recipient variables, viremia

    Full Text Available La convergencia de diferentes grupos humanos, prácticas, saberes y temporalidades catapulta al Caribe como fenómeno singular. Su reconocimiento como área socio-cultural, como espacio de transculturación y de sincretismo, depende de una teleología conciliadora de la diferencia. Cuestionando esta narrativa hegemónica, el presente ensayo ofrece una relectura de Fernando Ortiz, Edouard Glissant y Manuel Zapata Olivella a partir de lo que denomino el desafío a la pretensión unitaria de la identidad por vía negativa. Reflexiono sobre el potencial crítico del antagonismo y la violencia en la construcción de imaginarios históricos alternativos desde y sobre la región. As a site of intense relationality and encounter, the Caribbean has been constituted as a singular phenomenon. Its affirmation as a socio-cultural area, as the space of transculturación and syncretism, is determined by a conciliatory teleology regarding difference. To question this hegemonic cultural discourse, this essay offers a re-reading of Fernando Ortiz, Edouard Glissant and Manuel Zapata Olivella from what I will term a negative approach to and challenge of the unitary claim of identity. Through their work, I reflect on the critical potential of antagonism and violence in the construction of an alternative historical imaginary from and about the region.

El presente trabajo pretende proporcionar información de reconocimiento del problema del gobierno universitario, considerando a tres universidades regionales y amparado con fundamento en la teoría sobre el gobierno corporativo y el enfoque de agencia. Se busca identificar la percepción de las autoridades, respecto a la eficiencia del gobierno en las universidades chilenas y del entorno de la cual son parte; y además, analizar la relación de agencia que se da entre los rectores y su máximo cuerpo colegiado. Los resultados revelan: asimetrías de información, divergencias en cuanto a intereses y mecanismos alineadores entre los rectores y su máximo cuerpo colegiado y coincidencia sobre la eficiencia y las bondades del control. Se concluye sobre la necesidad de ampliar este tipo de investigación con miras al mejoramiento de las relaciones entre los rectores y el máximo cuerpo colegiado.

  9. Simon van der Meer in the AA Control Room

  12. Design study on advanced reprocessing systems for FR fuel cycle

    Tanaka, H.; Kawamura, F.; Nishimura, T.; Kamiya, M. [Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute, Ibaraki (Japan)

    2001-07-01

    A design study has been carried out for four advanced reprocessing technologies for the future fast rector (FR) recycle systems (advanced aqueous, and three non-aqueous systems based on oxide electrowinning, metal electrorefining, and fluoride volatility methods). The systems were evaluated mainly from the viewpoint of economics. It has been shown that, for MOX fuel reprocessing, all the systems with a capacity of 200 t/y attains the economical target, whereas for such a small capacity as 50 t/y, only the non-aqueous systems have potential to attain the target. For metallic and nitride fuel, a metal electrorefining system has been shown to be advantageous. (author)

  14. Fundamental studies of chemical vapor deposition diamond growth processes

    We are developing laser spectroscopic techniques to foster a fundamental understanding of diamond film growth by hot filament chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Several spectroscopic techniques are under investigation to identify intermediate species present in the bulk reactor volume, the thin active volume immediately above the growing film, and the actual growing surface. Such a comprehensive examination of the overall deposition process is necessary because a combination of gas phase and surface chemistry is probably operating. Resonantly enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) techniques have been emphasized. A growth rector that permits through-the-substrate gas sampling for REMPI/time-of-flight mass spectroscopy has been developed. 7 refs., 2 figs

  18. Environment-insensitive equivalent diffusion theory group constants for pressurized water reactor radial reflector regions

    A novel one-dimensional approach, which combines the nodal equivalence theory and response matrix homogenization methods, is developed for generating equivalent few-group nodal diffusion parameters for the radial reflector of a pressurized water reactor. This nodal reflector model has the advantage that it is much less sensitive to reactor core conditions than conventional nodal equivalence theory models. A special one-dimensional nodal equivalence theory reflector model is described and applied in numerical experiments to investigate the significance of the environment dependence of such models. Numerical results are presented to confirm the environment insensitivity of the new model and to illustrate its feasibility for application to multidimensional nodal rector analysis

In addition to the PLC and remote and local operator workstations, auxiliary systems for remote operation include a video system, an intercom system, and a fiber optic communication system. The remote control station, located at the High Flux Isotope Reactor 2.5 km from the BSR, has the capability of rector startup and power control. The system was designed with reliability and fail-safe features as important considerations. 4 refs., 3 figs.

  18. La gestión centralizada de la adquisición de la colección de la BUBU. Un modelo de optimización de recursos y de gestión de la información

    Díaz Bergantiños, Encarnación

    2010-01-01

    [ES] Cuando se crea en el año 1994, la Universidad de Burgos parte de un modelo de Biblioteca totalmente descentralizado: gestión, colecciones y Servicios. Los nuevos Órganos rectores de la Universidad cuestionan desde el principio la conveniencia de mantener este modelo y se plantean la necesidad de realizar un análisis de sus ventajas e inconvenientes. El resultado de este análisis evidencia que los inconvenientes son mucho más numerosos que las ventajas y en consecuencia apuestan por...

  19. La dimensión cultural en el trabajo social con población inmigrante : una perspectiva desde la antropología social

  7. The management of change in BNFL's UK group with particular reference to the restructuring of the health and safety functions

    BNFL's UK group business involves reprocessing of uranium metal (Magnox) fuel, storage and dismantling of advanced gas rector (ceramic UO2) fuel, waste treatment and storage, decommissioning and electricity generation. These activities are carried out at three sites in the North West corner of England and Southern Scotland: Sellafield - all activities, Chapelcross -electricity generation, Drigg - waste storage. Achieving fundamental change in a well established nuclear business which is highly regulated is possible and can bring large benefits. The keys to success are leadership and commitment from all senior managers, involvement of all stakeholders and communication. It is essential to involve the regulator as a stakeholder. (author)

  8. Investigations in freon on critical heat flux (KRISTA-program)

    Experimental studies on CHF in circular tubes and rod bundles are performed in the KRISTA test facility. The experiments cover a wide range of parameters of interest to LWRs, HCLWR and also Russian WWER rectors. CHF tests in circular tubes of three different inner diameters of 4 mm, 8 mm and 12 mm have been performed in order to study the influence of tube diameter on CHF. In contrast to previous work the influence of diameter on CHF has been found to be a complex function of pressure, exit quality, mass flux and the diameter itself. (orig./DG)

  12. Retos para los sistemas sanitarios de Latinoamérica: ¿qué puede aprenderse de la experiencia europea?

    Figueras J

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo compara los retos de los sistemas sanitarios latinoamericanos y la experiencia en Europa. El marco conceptual se centra en cuatro funciones: a generar recursos; b producir intervenciones; c financiar, y d «ejercer rectoría». Es a este nivel donde los actores pueden influir sobre el desempeño del sistema. Se identifican cinco retos para Latinoamérica: a extender (prepago y solidaridad la protección financiera; b estabilizar en el tiempo dicha protección para épocas de crisis; c equilibrar los recursos coherentemente con la capacidad de financiar servicios, d aumentar la eficiencia ubicativa y técnica al producir servicios, y e mejorar la función de rectoría de las demás funciones en los sectores público y privado (el más difícil y más importante reto hoy para los sistemas latinoamericanos. Se analiza luego la experiencia de reforma en Europa, presentando: a experiencias sobre protección financiera en los sistemas tipo Beveridge y Bismarck; b estabilidad en tiempos de crisis refrendada recientemente (Oeste y con graves obstáculos (Este; c el esfuerzo por equilibrar camas hospitalarias y profesionales sanitarios combinando regulación e incentivos; d un aumento de la eficiencia en la producción de servicios priorizando más expresamente, dando voz a los pacientes, descentralizando la gestión y con incentivos de mercado, y e una mejora de la rectoría no regulando menos sino mejor (y en algunos casos, más. Tres áreas de la experiencia europea sobresalen: a combinar solidaridad con sostenibilidad financiera; b introducir mesuradamente incentivos de mercado pero manteniendo un claro papel rector del Estado, y c adoptar innovaciones en la organizacíon y producción de servicios. Pese a las dificultades metodológicas, la convergencia de los retos y las «soluciones» adoptadas justifica este análisis, pero las enseñanzas deben contemplarse desde cada contexto nacional.

  6. Design study on advanced reprocessing systems for FR fuel cycle

    A design study has been carried out for four advanced reprocessing technologies for the future fast rector (FR) recycle systems (advanced aqueous, and three non-aqueous systems based on oxide electrowinning, metal electrorefining, and fluoride volatility methods). The systems were evaluated mainly from the viewpoint of economics. It has been shown that, for MOX fuel reprocessing, all the systems with a capacity of 200 t/y attains the economical target, whereas for such a small capacity as 50 t/y, only the non-aqueous systems have potential to attain the target. For metallic and nitride fuel, a metal electrorefining system has been shown to be advantageous. (author)

    Born in Hanau, Germany, in 1614, Franciscus (Dele Boë) Sylvius received his medical doctor diploma from Basel University in 1637 and became Professor of Practical Medicine at Leiden University in 1658. One of the founders of medical biochemistry, Sylvius was also an outstanding anatomopathologist, with contributions ranging from the first description of the pulmonary tubercles to that of the lateral fissure of the brain. Thanks to Sylvius, a gifted teacher and one of the greatest physicians of his time, Leiden became a major European medical training center. He died in 1772 after having served as Rector Magnificus at Leiden University. PMID:26911424

  12. John Twysden and John Palmer: 17th-century Northamptonshire astronomers

    Frost, M. A.

    2008-01-01

    John Twysden (1607-1688) and John Palmer (1612-1679) were two astronomers in the circle of Samuel Foster (circa 1600-1652), the subject of a recent paper in this journal. John Twysden qualified in law and medicine and led a peripatetic life around England and Europe. John Palmer was Rector of Ecton, Northamptonshire and later Archdeacon of Northampton. The two astronomers catalogued observations made from Northamptonshire from the 1640s to the 1670s. In their later years Twysden and Palmer published works on a variety of topics, often astronomical. Palmer engaged in correspondence with Henry Oldenburg, the first secretary of the Royal Society, on topics in astronomy and mathematics.

  16. Researchers study tsunami generated by Mexican earthquake

    Filonov, Anatoliy E.

    Barra de Navidad is a small Mexican tourist town on the coast of a lagoon that is buffered from the Pacific Ocean by a narrow strip of sand. The town is a favorite rest spot of American and Canadian tourists. On October 9, 1995, at 9:36 local time (1536 GMT), a strong earthquake that measured Mx = 8.0 disrupted the lives of the townspeople. The epicenter of the earthquake was located in the ocean at 18°51.5‧N and 104°8.4‧W [Ortiz and Synolakis, 1996], but it destroyed many hotels and homes, and the shifting of the land tore up the highway that connects Barra de Navidad and Manzanillo. Crevices of up to 3 m wide opened across the road, and bridges over small rivers were knocked down. In an instant, the town was disconnected from the outside world. Frightened townspeople roamed the streets, assessing the destruction.

  17. Lectures on Gaussian approximations with Malliavin calculus

    Nourdin, Ivan

    2012-01-01

    In a seminal paper of 2005, Nualart and Peccati discovered a surprising central limit theorem (called the "Fourth Moment Theorem" in the sequel) for sequences of multiple stochastic integrals of a fixed order: in this context, convergence in distribution to the standard normal law is equivalent to convergence of just the fourth moment. Shortly afterwards, Peccati and Tudor gave a multidimensional version of this characterization. Since the publication of these two beautiful papers, many improvements and developments on this theme have been considered. Among them is the work by Nualart and Ortiz-Latorre, giving a new proof only based on Malliavin calculus and the use of integration by parts on Wiener space. A second step is my joint paper "Stein's method on Wiener chaos" (written in collaboration with Peccati) in which, by bringing together Stein's method with Malliavin calculus, we have been able (among other things) to associate quantitative bounds to the Fourth Moment Theorem. It turns out that Stein's meth...

  19. A Review of Spectral Methods for Variable Amplitude Fatigue Prediction and New Results

    Larsen, Curtis E.; Irvine, Tom

    2013-01-01

    A comprehensive review of the available methods for estimating fatigue damage from variable amplitude loading is presented. The dependence of fatigue damage accumulation on power spectral density (psd) is investigated for random processes relevant to real structures such as in offshore or aerospace applications. Beginning with the Rayleigh (or narrow band) approximation, attempts at improved approximations or corrections to the Rayleigh approximation are examined by comparison to rainflow analysis of time histories simulated from psd functions representative of simple theoretical and real world applications. Spectral methods investigated include corrections by Wirsching and Light, Ortiz and Chen, the Dirlik formula, and the Single-Moment method, among other more recent proposed methods. Good agreement is obtained between the spectral methods and the time-domain rainflow identification for most cases, with some limitations. Guidelines are given for using the several spectral methods to increase confidence in the damage estimate.

The large collecting area of the night side of the lunar disk, approximately 3.8 10(exp 6)sq km in our camera field-of-view, provides statistically significant counts of the meteoroids striking the lunar surface. Over 200 lunar impacts have been observed by our program in roughly 4 years. Photometric calibration of the flashes observed in the first 3 years along with the luminous efficiency determined using meteor showers and hypervelocity impact tests (Bellot Rubio et al. 2000; Ortiz et al. 2006; Moser et al. 2010; Swift et al. 2010) provide their impact kinetic energies. The asymmetry in the flux on the evening and morning hemispheres of the Moon is compared with sporadic and shower sources to determine their most likely origin. These measurements are consistent with other observations of large meteoroid fluxes.

    The quasicontinuum method (two-dimensional) developed by Tadmor et al. [Tadmor EB, Ortiz M, Phillips R. Philos Mag 1996;73:1529] is applied to an indentation process taking account of the atomic structure of the indenter and the substrate subject to indentation. Slip vectors, dislocation nucleation and nanostructure formation are analyzed for different indenter materials (Ag, Cu and Pd) and indenter crystal orientations. Slip vectors near to the contact region show that, depending on the material and orientation of the indenter, plastic deformations occur either inside the indenter or the substrate. Long-range material deformations appear during the indentation or retraction of the indenter. All of these aspects mainly dictate the formation of nanoclusters or nanoholes on the substrate surface.

  4. Cognitive Variables Implicated In Chronic Pain

    Moretti, Luciana Sofía

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Since the creation of gate control theory, the importance of psychological variables in chronic pain has emerged. Thus, the cognitive variables are emphasized in between behaviors, emotions and social factors for the explanation of chronic pain. Considering the gate control theory, cognitive variables modulate the other two dimensions of the chronic pain experience: the motivational-afective dimension and the sensory-discriminative dimension (Camacho Martel & Anarte Ortiz, 2001; Gatchel, Peng, Peters, Fuchs & Turk, 2007. The aim of this work is to review the main cognitive variables implicated in the chronic pain experience. Moreover, empirical evidence that support the importance of these variables is presented. Furthermore, it is discussed the clinical implications and the importance of this area in the local context.

  5. Fracture and Fragmentation of Simplicial Finite Elements Meshes using Graphs

    Mota, A; Knap, J; Ortiz, M

    2006-10-18

    An approach for the topological representation of simplicial finite element meshes as graphs is presented. It is shown that by using a graph, the topological changes induced by fracture reduce to a few, local kernel operations. The performance of the graph representation is demonstrated and analyzed, using as reference the 3D fracture algorithm by Pandolfi and Ortiz [22]. It is shown that the graph representation initializes in O(N{sub E}{sup 1.1}) time and fractures in O(N{sub I}{sup 1.0}) time, while the reference implementation requires O(N{sub E}{sup 2.1}) time to initialize and O(N{sub I}{sup 1.9}) time to fracture, where NE is the number of elements in the mesh and N{sub I} is the number of interfaces to fracture.

    Full Text Available This investigation compares two translations from English into Portuguese of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. The corpus comprises a translation/adaptation for young readers, translated by Claudia Ortiz (2005, and a translation for a general audience (i.e. experienced readers, published by Oscar Mendes (1981. We investigate textual aspects such as lexical choices, omissions, and explicitations in order to compare and contrast source and target texts. Guided by this analysis, we discuss the possibility of enlarging Poe’s readership. This discussion is grounded on the Scope Theory (Vermeer and Reiss, 2002 and the Interpretive Community Theory (Fish, 1990. The comparison of the translations indicates that the adaptation seems to respect the intended audience’s reading experiences and to be consistent with social practices, other than translation, which usually take children and youngsters as primary audience.

With a strong sense of national pride, a new generation of Indian writers and poets in this period took up writing as a weapon of political liberation, proclaiming their dismissal of assimilation and articulating the desire to identify with their ancestral heritages. As part of them, Joy Harjo, Simon Ortiz and Linda Hogan infused their poem composition with traditional Indian culture such as affiliation with land, storytelling and vision so as to highlight Indian narrative discourse and mythology that are different from the dominant culture.

  14. English language learners with learning disabilities interacting in a science class within an inclusion setting

    Ayala, Vivian Luz

    In today's schools there are by far more students identified with learning disabilities (LD) than with any other disability. The U.S. Department of Education in the year 1997--98 reported that there are 38.13% students with LD in our nations' schools (Smith, Polloway, Patton, & Dowdy, 2001; U.S. Department of Education, 1999). Of those, 1,198,200 are considered ELLs with LD (Baca & Cervantes. 1998). These figures which represent an increase evidence the need to provide these students with educational experiences geared to address both their academic and language needs (Ortiz, 1997; Ortiz, & Garcia, 1995). English language learners with LD must be provided with experiences in the least restrictive environment (LRE) and must be able to share the same kind of social and academic experiences as those students from the general population (Etscheidt & Bartlett, 1999; Lloyd, Kameenui, & Chard, 1997) The purpose of this research was to conduct a detailed qualitative study on classroom interactions to enhance the understanding of the science curriculum in order to foster the understanding of content and facilitate the acquisition of English as a second language (Cummins, 2000; Echevarria, Vogt, & Short, 2000). This study was grounded on the theories of socioconstructivism, second language acquisition, comprehensible input, and classroom interactions. The participants of the study were fourth and fifth grade ELLS with LD in a science elementary school bilingual inclusive setting. Data was collected through observations, semi-structured interviews (students and teacher), video and audio taping, field notes, document analysis, and the Classroom Observation Schedule (COS). The transcriptions of the video and audio tapes were coded to highlight emergent patterns on the type of interactions and language used by the participants. The findings of the study intend to provide information for teachers of ELLs with LD about the implications of using classroom interactions point to

    The temperature and field dependence of harmonics in voltage V{sub n}=V{sub n}{sup '}-iV{sub n}{sup ''} using the screening technique have been measured for YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7-{delta}} superconducting thin films. Using the Sun model we obtained the curves for the temperature-dependent critical current density J{sub c}(T). In addition, we applied the criterion proposed by Acosta et al. to compute J{sub c}(T). Also, we made used of the empirical law J{sub c{proportional_to}}(1-T/T{sub c}){sup n} as an input in our calculations to reproduce experimental harmonic generation up to the fifth harmonic. We found that most models fit well the fundamental voltage but higher harmonics are poorly reproduced. Such behavior suggests the idea that higher harmonics contain information concerning complex processes like flux creep or thermally assisted flux flow.

    D. Barney

    CERN and CMS have again been in the spotlight in the past months, in the run-up to the LHC restart. Media interest has been fairly constant for the past year, with many journalists visiting and producing written articles as well as television documentaries and, more recently, news items. Of course activity grew exponentially in November: the number of visitors to our public web-site grew from about 1000 per day (corresponding to about 50000 hits per day) to more than 13000 on 25th November (nearly 5 million hits in a single day!). This increase in traffic coincided with a new addition to the web-site: a News section: http://cms.web.cern.ch/cms/News/index.html,  to relay in nearly real-time what is happening with CMS and the LHC. Two major parts of this section are the “e-commentary” (courtesy of Darin Acosta) and “CMSTV” (courtesy of Lucas Taylor).

    Full Text Available This article, the result of a Master‟s thesis, has as the main objective to investigate how trainee-engineers from the Advanced Training Program for Engineers (ATPE, from a Brazilian organization called Challenge, working in multidisciplinary teams with the help of mentors, interact and mobilize their knowledge, resulting in learning. To accomplish this, a Theoretical Reference Model based on the studies of Nonaka and Takeuchi (1997; Crossan, Lane and White (1999; Choo (2000, 2001; Garvin (2002; Schwartz (2003; Zietsma, Winn, Branzei and Vertinsky (2002; Senge (2006 and Castañeda, Rios (2007 and Pérez-Acosta (2005 was built. The data of this qualitative study case was garnered by an open questionnaire, individual interviews and questionnaires with a closed scale, applied in October and November of 2008. The results show that ATPE is seen as a proper driver of the mobilization, interaction and exchange of knowledge between trainee-engineers and mentors, resulting in learning at individual and group levels. Mentors are professionals that stimulate attention, autonomy and promote integration in an environment that simulates the business one. These aspects were seen as facilitators of the interaction and learning in ATPE. At the end, 18 notions were related to learning in ATPE and appear portrayed in an Empirical Representation done by authors.

Endothelial function is altered in patients with coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease, and endothelial dysfunction correlates with the risk factor profile for a patient. Hypertension and type 2 diabetes are risk factors for vascular disease, and are both pathologies characterized by loss of NO activity. Indeed, endothelial dysfunction is usually present in diabetic and/or hypertensive patients. Tetrahydrobiopterin is an essential cofactor for the NO synthase enzyme, and insufficiency of this cofactor leads to uncoupling of the enzyme, release of superoxide, endothelial dysfunction, progression of hypertension, and finally, proatherogenic effects. Tetrahydrobiopterin is also an important mediator of NO synthase regulation in type 2 diabetes and hypertension, and may be a rational therapeutic target to restore endothelial function and prevent vascular disease in these patients. The aim of this paper is to review the rationale for therapeutic strategies directed to biopterins as a target for vascular disease in type 2 diabetic hypertensive patients.Keywords: tetrahydrobiopterin, endothelial dysfunction, diabetes, hypertension, oxidative stress, nitric oxide, eNOS synthase uncoupling

    Full Text Available Objectives: to characterize the clinical and sociodemographic profiles of women with breast cancer treated at the Oncology Unit of the Federico Lleras Acosta Hospital in Ibagué, Colombia between 2005 and 2009, and to identify service times. Methodology: a retrospective descriptive study in which 308 records were selected. Variables were collected using an instrument developed by the authors. The statistical analysis was conducted using the SPSS software. Results: the predominant age group was 45 to 64 years old. Additionally, 57.8% of these women were married. Similarly, most of them were from urban areas. The average age of menarche was 13 years. Half of the participants had been pregnant at least 3 times, and most of them were in the postmenopausal stage of their lives. The most frequent histological type was the infiltrating ductal one, as well as stage IIIB. The predominant surgical choices were modified radical mastectomy, pre- and post-operative chemotherapy, and postoperative radiotherapy. As for service times, there were delays in the admission to the oncology unit and treatment initiation. Conclusion: there was a low rate of carcinoma in situ and a high proportion of stage IV carcinoma in comparison to other studies from developed countries. The high rates of abandonment in post treatment follow-up, the shortcomings in case monitoring, and the findings concerning service times suggest the need for institutional corrective measures in order to improve the quality of the healthcare service in breast cancer patients.

  1. Symmetry of quantum phase space in a degenerate Hamiltonian system

    The structure of the global ''quantum phase space'' is analyzed for the harmonic oscillator perturbed by a monochromatic wave in the limit when the perturbation amplitude is small. Usually, the phenomenon of quantum resonance was studied in nondegenerate [G. M. Zaslavsky, Chaos in Dynamic Systems (Harwood Academic, Chur, 1985)] and degenerate [Demikhovskii, Kamenev, and Luna-Acosta, Phys. Rev. E 52, 3351 (1995)] classically chaotic systems only in the particular regions of the classical phase space, such as the center of the resonance or near the separatrix. The system under consideration is degenerate, and even an infinitely small perturbation generates in the classical phase space an infinite number of the resonant cells which are arranged in the pattern with the axial symmetry of the order 2μ (where μ is the resonance number). We show analytically that the Husimi functions of all Floquet states (the quantum phase space) have the same symmetry as the classical phase space. This correspondence is demonstrated numerically for the Husimi functions of the Floquet states corresponding to the motion near the elliptic stable points (centers of the classical resonance cells). The derived results are valid in the resonance approximation when the perturbation amplitude is small enough, and the stochastic layers in the classical phase space are exponentially thin. The developed approach can be used for studying a global symmetry of more complicated quantum systems with chaotic behavior. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics

    On 1993, the Spanish Government decided to perform a systematic hydrographic/oceanographic study of the so called "Spanish Exclusive Economic Zone" (ZEEE), that is, the marine area surrounding Spanish coast within the 200 nm limit. To achieve it, the oceanographic ship "Hespérides" would be at disposal of the Defense Ministry during one moth a year. A "ZEEE-Plan" was established on 1994 with the main objective to improve cartography of the ZEEE zone and acquire different geophysical parameters to characterize it. A "ZEEE-group" was conformed by personnel coming from the Hydrographic Institute of the Spanish Navy (IHM) and the Spanish Oceanographic Institute (IEO), the Institutions responsible of the campaigns, as well as San Fernando Naval Observatory (ROA), University Complutense of Madrid (UCM), and others. From 1995 to 1997 systematic marine campaigns were carried out at the Valencia Trough and Balearic Sea (Western Mediterranean), complemented by two additional campaigns, carried out on 1999 and 2000. As a result of those campaigns maps of Bathymetry, Geomagnetic Anomalies and Free Air/Bouguer Gravity Anomalies have been published, six maps of 1:200.000 scale and one additional map, of 1:500.000 scale, for the whole area (the maps are available at IEO: Juan.acosta@md.ieo.es, fax: +34 914135597, and IHM: fax: +34 956599396). In this work the above mentioned results will be presented, together with the main characteristics of the surveys.

    Dear Participants and Guests On behalf of the Rector's Office, welcome to St. Petersburg University, one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious universities in Russia. The 12 Colleges Building (named after the Collegia of Peter the Great's time, Ministries in the modern sense of the word) has been home to the University since 1804. St. Petersburg State University is the successor of the first Russian University founded by Peter the Great on 24 January 1724. It's distinguished faculty members include mathematicians Chebyshev and Smirnov, physicists Lenz and Fock, chemists Mendeleev and Butlerov, embryologist Kovalevsky, and physiologist Sechenov. Several of our alumni won Nobel Prizes - Pavlov, Semenov, Kantorovich, Landau and Prokhorov. The University is the alma mater of two presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev. St. Petersburg State University today consists of 19 faculties on two campuses: in the historic downtown, on Vasilyevsky Island, and in Peterhof. The Faculty of Physics carries out research projects through the efforts of 260 employees, of which 150 hold doctoral degrees, and 50 have been awarded Grand Doctorates. The work is done in a vast variety of areas, from the physics of elementary particles to the physics of the atmosphere. Optics and spectroscopy has been a particularly significant area of research. This field of inquiry goes back to the work of Academician D S Rozhdestvensky more than 70 years ago, when he first suggested his famous hook method. After him the work was headed by S Frisch, corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences and editor-in-chief of Optics and Spectroscopy Journal. Today research projects in optics involve over 50 staff members, graduate and post-graduate students. Work involves projects on spectroscopy of cold and hot plasma, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, non-linear spectroscopy and spectroscopic analysis. Our scholars support active international ties with their colleagues worldwide. The

  5. Nuclear power technologies for application in developing countries

    The tremendous social and political changes which have occurred during the recent decade in the former USSR made it possible to launch the process of commercialization of defense-related technologies in Russia. The so-called dual-use technologies are meant to be initially developed by the state for defense needs, but having a high commercial potential as well. To date, the process of such technology transfer from the state sector to a private one has been limited primarily by insufficient progress of the national private sector. Essentially, the main economic problem still remains the attraction of private capital for the promotion of dual-use technologies to the point at where they acquire commercially viable. A large number of advanced technologies are waiting to be commercialized. The report presented considers the prospects of civil use of some technologies related to the nuclear power area: space nuclear power systems, nuclear powered submarines and rector-pumped lasers.

  10. Love at first sight. Co-operation between the Netherlands and Norway on the peaceful use of atomic energy, 1950-1960

    This study describes the co-operation during the fifties and sixties between the Netherlands and Norway in the sphere of the peaceful use of nuclear energy. It is the story about the establishment, development and abolishment of the Joint Establishment for Nuclear Energy Research (JENER) at Kjeller, Norway. The start of operation of the Norwegian-Dutch reactor JEEP at Kjeller in July 1951 heralded the first phase of JENER. This rector became the first reactor in the world to be built outside the big-power states. The present study explains how it was possible for to two small states to go ahead with a reactor project at the outset of the post-war period. 13 refs

  11. Innovation in the Teaching-learning Processes: A Case Study Using Just-in-Time Teaching and Peer Instruction

    Ana Carolina Maldonado-Fuentes

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available Learning quality constitutes one of the main challenges faced by Higher Education, thus a student centered teaching and the development of educational innovations that use active methodologies have been promoted. This article aims to evaluate the impact of using Just-in-Time Teaching and Peer Instruction on the results of teaching a subject, of disciplinary character, in 17 students of a career on an initial teacher training belonging to Chile’s Council of Rectors. A pre and postest model was applied between August and December 2012. The analysis used descriptive techniques that allowed the characterization of the admission profile and inferentials to explain, statistically, the observed differences in the performance of the subjects. In terms of perception, a positive assessment of the relationship between students and the teacher in the classroom was observed, this stood out above the improvement in the handling of disciplinary content.

  12. Fusion reactor cost reductions by employing non-nuclear grade components

    The authors discuss fusion rectors with sufficiently low inventories of tritium and activated materials could be candidates for non-nuclear grade components and costing methods. N-stamp qualification is not required if the accidental site boundary radiation dose, assuming failure of all reactor components, is less than that specified by 10CFR100. Nuclear-grade components can cost several times more than conventional components that are identical in all respects except for the qualifications testing and extra quality control required of the former. Similarly, indirect costs can be 25-90% higher for nuclear-grade construction. The Cascade inertial confinement fusion reactor fits the requirements of low radioactive inventories and inherent safety and is therefore a candidate for non-nuclear construction throughout. Two cost estimates were made for an 815 MWe Cascade power plant are described

  13. Radiation exposure by ingestion of drinking water contaminated with radioactivity

    It was the aim of this study to examine the relationship between concentrations of such mixtures of radioactive substances as may occur after a nuclear burst or rector accident resulting in the release of radioactive material and the radiation dose taken up with the drinking water, which was calculated with reference to the beginning and duration of ingestion as well as the ingested volumes of contaminated drinking water. Determined were the activities of all the radionuclides contained in 1 l drinking water, which together lead to a time-dependent effective uptake of 1 Sv at days 0, 1 and 7 as well as 1 month and 6 months after contamination of the drinking water.

  14. [The Universidad de Buenos Aires in the 1970s: analysis of the press release expressing solidarity with Rodolfo Puiggrós].

    Recalde, Aritz

    2012-12-01

    This article reconstructs the historical context surrounding the emission of a press release by authorities of the Universidad de Buenos Aires, expressing their solidarity with historian and university rector Rodolfo Puiggrós after his resignation. In his term, Puiggrós attempted to fuse the institution's scientific and technological plans with the new development model initiated by Héctor Cámpora and the Peronist movement in 1973. The article makes reference to the project of university transformation promoted by Puiggrós, combining the ideological traditions of Marxism, reformism, and nationalism. A few key points, useful for analyzing the reasons behind Puiggrós's resignation, are presented, and the arguments highlighted within this press release, published by Office of Media and Communications on October 5, 1973, are discussed.

  15. [Ophthalmologists in the proximity of Adolf Hitler].

    Rohrbach, J M

    2012-10-01

    Adolf Hitler met or at least knew about 5 ophthalmologists. The chair of ophthalmology in Berlin, Walther Löhlein, personally examined Hitler's eyes at least two times. The chair of ophthalmology in Breslau, Walter Dieter, developed "air raid protection spectacles" with the aid of high representatives of the NS-system and probably Adolf Hitler himself. Heinrich Wilhelm Kranz became rector of the universities of Giessen and Frankfurt/Main. He was known as a very strict advocate of the NS-race hygiene. Werner Zabel made plans for Hitler's diet and tried to interfere with Hitler's medical treatment. Finally, Hellmuth Unger was an influential representative of the medical press and a famous writer. Three of his novels with medical topics were made into a film which Hitler probably saw. Hitler had, so to say, a small "ophthalmological proximity" which, however, did not play a significant role for himself or the NS-state. PMID:22664943

  16. BWR Water Chemistry Guidelines: 1993 Revision, Normal and hydrogen water chemistry

    The goal of water chemistry control is to extend the operating life of the reactor and rector coolant system, balance-of-plant components, and turbines while simultaneously controlling costs to safeguard the continued economic viability of the nuclear power generation investment. To further this goal an industry committee of chemistry personnel prepared guidelines to identify the benefits, risks, and costs associated with water chemistry in BWRs and to provide a template for an optimized water chemistry program. This document replaces the BWR Normal Water Chemistry Guidelines - 1986 Revision and the BWR Hydrogen Water Chemistry Guidelines -- 1987 Revision. It expands on the previous guidelines documents by covering the economic implications of BWR water chemistry control

  17. Three-dimensional time-dependent star reactor kinetics analysis coupled with RETRAN and MCPWR system response

    The operation of a nuclear power plant must be continually supported by analyses which may include FSAR design basis and best-estimate thermal-hydraulic (T/H) and reactor dynamics analyses. The development and improvement of new analysis techniques provide many advantages including the capability to evaluate the impact of modeling assumptions made in previous rector kinetics and T/H calculations. The methodology presented in this paper shows how the time-dependent, three-dimensional reactor kinetics STAR nodal code can be directly coupled with the overall RCS T/H codes, RETRAN and MCPWR, in a tandem, iterative approach. This paper describes the results of using the RETRAN, MCPWR, and STAR codes in a tandem, predictive-corrective mode for three PWR transients: Loss of Feedwater Anticipated Transient Without Scram (ATWS); Station Blackout ATWS; and a Total Loss of Reactor Coolant System (RCS) Flow with a control rod scram

  19. Transport security of radioactive material in Paraguay

    Paraguay has implemented diverse mechanisms for the safe transport of radioactive material. Among the first of these was the adoption and implementation of national regulations based on the latest edition of the IAEA's Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (IAEA Safety Standards Series No. TS-R-1). The National Regulation for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources, in Article 34, states that any transport of radioactive materials must fulfil the IAEA's Transport Regulations. In addition, Resolution No. 4097/00 of the Rector of the National University of Asuncion approved the latest edition of the IAEA's Transport Regulations, as the only instrument to be used by the National Commission of Atomic Energy - the competent authority - in authorizing the safe transport of radioactive material, for exports and especially within MERCOSUR, the Common Market of the South.

  2. The good wealth of dismantlement

    Civil engineering, mechanical and waste conditioning companies are working hard on the market of nuclear facilities dismantling. This market has a great future ahead of it in the ten years to come. According to the European Commission, 50 to 60 reactors among the 157 actually in service in the European Union should be dismantled by 2025. The cost per reactor is estimated to 10-15% of the initial investment, which represents an enormous amount of money, estimated to 20-39 billion euros for the only French nuclear park. In France, this market is shared by a core of about 20 companies, like Spie Nucleaire, Onet, Vinci (Nuvia) and Areva. Some dismantling sites require a specific skill, in particular those in relation with the research activity of the CEA (the French atomic energy commission) or involving specific technologies (research reactors, spent fuel reprocessing plants, sodium-cooled rectors..).

Code consists of the several modules, which allows simulating: thermal hydraulic, neutron-physic, thermal-mechanical processes and behavior of fission products in rector vessel in coupled statement. Brief description of SOCRAT-BN code is presented in the paper. Validation on the base of the integral experiments and out-of-pile experiments were carried out to show code workability. Integral tests include experiments provided at BN-600 reactor. Detailed nodalization scheme, consists of primary, secondary and third sides, was performed to simulate BN-600 reactor. To validate SOCRAT-BN code the following BN-600 transients were chosen: natural circulation core cooling at 50% power load, and one loop tripping at about 100% power load. SOCRAT-BN code simulations results showed good agreement with the experimental data. (author)

  4. Using the DSNP Modular Modeling System for the Safety Assessment of Advanced Nuclear Power Plants

    Advanced nuclear reactor concepts require even in their inception or preliminary conceptual design a safety assessment and a coupled neutronic-thermal hydraulic analysis. Often, such analyses cannot be performed with standard system analysis and simulation codes, because in most cases advanced reactor concepts, particularly in what is considered to be Gen-IV rectors, include unusual design features, which cannot be modeled with available simulation packages. The unusual features can be specially designed heat exchangers integrated in the core vessel wall, reactor vessel air cooling systems employing natural circulation phenomena, unusual fuel elements such as pebbles of different sizes and construction, fluidized bed fuel, exotic coolant such as led-bismuth eutectic for which special equations of state are needed, and accelerator driven systems with unique control features. The combination of new reactor components, fuels and coolants in advanced nuclear power plants require a specific modeling system such as the DSNP. (Dynamic Simulator for Nuclear Power-plants)

  9. In core gamma dosimetry using thermoluminescence detectors (TLDs) in research reactor

    Since gamma flux co-exists with the neutrons in the reactor core of a research reactor, it becomes difficult to measure exclusively gamma dose rate. Whereas it is quite important to know the gamma dose rates while performing controlled experiments in a research reactor. With this urge experiments have been performed to measure gamma dose rate at central vertical port (CVP) of the University of Florida Training Reactor (UFTR) using thermoluminescence detectors (TLDs). It is demonstrated that among the commercially available TLDs, LiF/sub 2/ can be used to determine the in-core gamma dose rate at low rector power levels (a few hundred watts). The gamma dose rate depending upon reactor power at CVP of UFTR has been determined to be 0.66+- 0.09 Ghy/sup -1/W/sup -1/. Extrapolation of gamma dose higher power is discussed. (author)

  12. Contribution to solving the problem of neutron thermalization in heterogeneous reactor

    A method for calculating of neutron termalization in heterogeneous rector core was developed. It is more precise than the diffusion method but more complcated. Concerning accuracy it is comparable to non-diffusion methods. Sonce the approach was analytical need for powerful computer is avoided and the description of physical phenomena is more transparent. Convergence is satsfactory. Constraints of the proposed method are: low neutron absorption in the moderator, negligible slowing down in the fuel, and big lattice pitch. The method is applicable for heavy water and graphite moderator systems. Based on the application of this method, procedures were developed for calculating thermal utilzation and neutron temperature. Since 1/v dependence of cross sections is not estimated this metof could be used for long-term reactivity changes

  19. A personal-computer-based package for interactive assessment of magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and poloidal field coil design in axisymmetric toroidal geometry

    A personal-computer (PC)-based calculational approach assesses magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equilibrium and poloidal field (PF) coil arrangement in a highly interactive mode, well suited for tokamak scoping studies. The system developed involves a two-step process: the MHD equilibrium is calculated and then a PF coil arrangement, consistent with the equilibrium is determined in an interactive design environment. In this paper the approach is used to examine four distinctly different toroidal configurations: the STARFIRE rector, a spherical torus (ST), the Big Dee, and an elongated tokamak. In these applications the PC-based results are benchmarked against those of a mainframe code for STARFIRE, ST, and Big Dee. The equilibrium and PF coil arrangement calculations obtained with the PC approach agree within a few percent with those obtained with the mainframe code

  20. Applicability of fatigue life reduction factor in design analyses of PWR Primary components considering effects of reactor coolant environment

    This paper investigates applicability of the USNRC Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.207 for new reactors for evaluating fatigue analyses incorporating the life reduction of metal components due to the effects of the light water reactor environment. Sample fatigue evaluations for critical parts of the reactor coolant system (RCS) component and piping are conducted using the environmental factor method as described in RG 1.207. Results of the fatigue evaluations are presented and discussed on the application of the regulatory guide. It if found that the fatigue design of the rector pressure vessel will be able to meet the requirements of Regulatory Guide 1.207, but the surge line piping can not. In order to comply with the regulatory guide on the environmental fatigue for new reactors, design analysis methodologies need be improved for the austenitic stainless steel piping in particular

    The Algerian Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Rachid Haraoubia, visited CERN on 14 November. His party included the Rector of the University of Blida and the Director of the Algerian Ecole Nationale Polytechnique. Welcomed by CERN's Director-General, Robert Aymar, and Secretary-General, Maximilien Metzger, he signed the VIP Visitors' Book before going on to visit the ATLAS experiment and the LHC tunnel. He then had the opportunity to meet Algerian scientists working at CERN. Some fifteen Algerian physicists attached to European and US institutes are participating in the LHC experiments, in particular ATLAS. A formal collaboration agreement between Algeria and CERN is expected to be drawn up in the near future.

  5. 222radon and its alpha decay concentration into university in Cluj

    The Bocskai house is an old building in the middle of Kolozsvar city. It was built in 1550. Now it host the Hungarian University Rector's Office and the Faculty of Science and Art, after many modifications. The building has 3 levels. We determined the radon activity concentration and the concentrations of its short-lived daughters in 12 different rooms used for education and as office rooms. The measurements were done with ionization chambers in different conditions in 24 h cycle in the period of 2003-2004. Simultaneously we measured ambient temperature, pressure and relative humidity of the air. We found that the radon activity concentration had values between 40 - 1800 Bq.m-3. Based on the measurements we estimated the exposure from radon and its short lived daughters of the people who work in this building. (author)

  6. A neural network application to control a nuclear reactor

    There are a few examples in the literature of the use of neural networks as a controller for systems with highly nonlinear dynamics. Since a nuclear power reactor is a highly nonlinear system, the purpose of the project described in this paper is to create a neural network that can generate the control signals for a nonlinear reactor model. The data for training and recall in the neural network come from a simulation of the advanced neutron source reactor performed with the ACSL software package. The modified Pontryagin's maximum principle was used to generate the control equations, where control of the rector is achieved by the changes of reactivity due to control rod movement and the inlet temperature change. The reactor was required to follow two given demands: the reactor power demand and the coolant temperature demand

    We demonstrate a spray pyrolysis method to grow carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with high degree of crystallinity, aspect ratio and degree of alignment on a variety of different substrates, such as conventional steel, carbon fibres (CF) and ceramics. The process consists in the chemical vapour deposition of both a thin SiO2 layer and CNTs that subsequently grow on this thin layer. After CNT growth, increases in specific surface by factors of 1000 and 30 for the steel and CF samples, respectively, are observed. CNTs growth on ceramic surfaces results in a surface resistance of 37.5 Ohm/sq. When using conventional steel as a rector tube, we observed CNTs growth rates of 0.6 g/min. Details of nanotube morphology and the growth mechanism are discussed. Since the method discussed here is highly versatile, it opens up a wide variety of applications in which specific substrates could be used in combination with CNTs. PMID:26353505

  8. Finnish Nuclear Power Development - Experiences and Lessons Learned

    A small nation planning to make use of nuclear energy technology faces an important question: Is a nuclear energy programme just buying a rector and fuel from abroad? The Finnish experience says no. Making the best economic and technical choices depends on circumstances and good decisions can be based only on adequate research. Carrying out a successful nuclear energy programme demands high quality standards and, most importantly, nuclear safety is a national responsibility. Through training of personal and a deep understanding of the technology are necessary to meet these challenges. In Finland, comprehensive coverage of important scientific and technical aspects has been achieved economically by pooling the resources of all domestic parties having relevant expertise and by extensive international collaboration.

  10. Death Row Confessions and the Last Meal Test of Innocence

    Full Text Available Post hoc analyses of Rector v. Arkansas have regularly highlighted that the defendant requested that part of his last meal be saved so that he could it eat later. While the observation is typically raised as part of arguments that Rector was incompetent and unfit for execution, the more basic fact is that commentators have drawn important inferences about Rector’s mental state from how he treated his last meal. In this essay, we draw upon multiple disciplines in order to apply the same inferential logic to a much broader sample and explore the question of whether traditionally customized last meals might offer signals of defendants’ guilt or innocence. To investigate this, the content of last-meal requests and last words reported for people executed in the United States during a recent five-year period were examined. Consistent with the idea that declination of the last meal is equivalent to a signal of (self-perceived innocence, those who denied guilt were 2.7 times as likely to decline a last meal than people who admitted guilt (29% versus 8%. Consistent with the complementary theory that people who admit guilt are relatively more “at peace” with their sentence, these individuals requested 34% more calories of food than the rest of the sample (2786 versus 2085 calories. A third finding is that those who denied guilt also tended to eat significantly fewer brand-name food items. Previous discussions of last meals have often lacked quantitative measurements; however, this systematic analysis shows that last meal requests offer windows into self-perceived or self-proclaimed innocence. Knowing one’s last meal request and one’s last words can provide valuable new variables for retrospectively assessing the processes that led to past executions.

    Full Text Available Filaret Scriban was an outstanding personality of the 19th century Moldova. Born inBurdujeni, Suceava, in 1811, he devoted his entire life to the Church and to his country. After a roughchildhood, he became a student at the Vasilian School and at Academia Mihăileană in Iaşi. When hewas still a student, he started his teaching career, which would be a long and successful one. Heaccomplished his education in Russia, where he also became a monk, raised to the rank ofarchimandrite two years later. As a rector and teacher at the Socola Seminary, he reorganizedtheological education in Moldova, by increasing the number of classes, by introducing new schoolsubjects and by writing textbooks for church schools and seminaries. He wrote many books, whichwere either published or remained in manuscripts and he made translations from Russian and French.He was also a mentor who encouraged young capable men to accomplish their education abroad. Hewas a professor at the Faculty of Theology in Iaşi, as well. Not only did Filaret Scriban serve theChurch, but he also supported the Union of the Romanian Provinces and he was elected deputy in theAd-hoc Council, bringing his contribution to the church reform. A few years later, he was elected Iaşisenator. Filaret Scriban joined his brother, Neofit, in the fight for canonicity. It is important tomention his role of church founder, as Filaret Scriban was one of the few bishops who founded achurch in his native village while being a seminary rector. His church in Burdujeni is the place wherehe was buried at his death, in 1873. Filaret Scriban was an active scholar and patriot, who had a say instrengthening the relationship between the Moldavian and the Russian Orthodox Church. He servedhis country and the Church with devotion and faith.

The short distance between the rear seats (32.80 m and the altar, and the inclination of the floor contribute to the establishment of a good communication between the priest and the faithful. Close to the altar is the choir, with accommodation for 3' people, and also the organ, and the sacristy, which in turn communicates with the rector's home and the parochial house. Special features of this church are the formal aspect of the structure —especially the side walls, which are hyperbolic paraboloids— the richness of constructive details, and the original and up to date architecture of the interior and external elevations.La nave del templo tiene una capacidad de 972 asientos en la planta principal, y de 231 en la galería en voladizo. La poca distancia (32,80 m que hay desde la última fila de bancos hasta el altar, y la inclinación que presenta el suelo de la nave, contribuyen a que la comunicación entre el celebrante y los fieles se realice en buenas condiciones. En el testero de la misma, junto al altar, se encuentra el coro, con capacidad para 35 personas; el órgano, y la sacristía, la cual se comunica con el cuerpo de edificio ocupado por la Rectoría y la Casa parroquial. En esta iglesia llaman especialmente la atención: el aspecto formal de su estructura —particularmente en lo que se refiere a sus muros laterales que describen un paraboloide hiperbólico—, la riqueza de sus detalles constructivos, y la moderna y original arquitectura de interiores y exteriores.

  15. New inferences from spectral seismic energy measurement of a link between regional seismicity and volcanic activity at Mt. Etna, Italy

    Ortiz, R.; Falsaperla, S.; Marrero, J. M.; Messina, A.

    2009-04-01

    The existence of a relationship between regional seismicity and changes in volcanic activity has been the subject of several studies in the last years. Generally, activity in basaltic volcanoes such as Villarica (Chile) and Tungurahua (Ecuador) shows very little changes after the occurrence of regional earthquakes. In a few cases volcanic activity has changed before the occurrence of regional earthquakes, such as observed at Teide, Tenerife, in 2004 and 2005 (Tárraga et al., 2006). In this paper we explore the possible link between regional seismicity and changes in volcanic activity at Mt. Etna in 2006 and 2007. On 24 November, 2006 at 4:37:40 GMT an earthquake of magnitude 4.7 stroke the eastern coast of Sicily. The epicenter was localized 50 km SE of the south coast of the island, and at about 160 km from the summit craters of Mt. Etna. The SSEM (Spectral Seismic Energy Measurement) of the seismic signal at stations at 1 km and 6 km from the craters highlights that four hours before this earthquake the energy associated with volcanic tremor increased, reached a maximum, and finally became steady when the earthquake occurred. Conversely, neither before nor after the earthquake, the SSEM of stations located between 80 km and 120 km from the epicentre and outside the volcano edifice showed changes. On 5 September, 2007 at 21:24:13 GMT an earthquake of magnitude 3.2 and 7.9 km depth stroke the Lipari Island, at the north of Sicily. About 38 hours before the earthquake occurrence, there was an episode of lava fountain lasting 20 hours at Etna volcano. The SSEM of the seismic signal recorded during the lava fountain at a station located at 6 km from the craters highlights changes heralding this earthquake ten hours before its occurrence using the FFM method (e.g., Voight, 1988; Ortiz et al., 2003). A change in volcanic activity - with the onset of ash emission and Strombolian explosions - was observed a couple of hours before the occurrence of the regional

During a Stroop task, concomitant N200, P300, and N450 event-related potentials were measured in 25 founder entrepreneurs and in age-matched and gender-matched nonfounders/nonentrepreneurs (NFNE. Reaction times were shorter among founder entrepreneurs. The N200 was shorter and N450 larger in founder entrepreneurs. The personalities of both groups were measured using the Temperament and Character Inventory-Revised. Founder entrepreneurs scored significantly higher in novelty-seeking and self-directedness dimensions, as well as in exploratory excitability, impulsiveness, optimism, eagerness, and responsibility subdimensions. Possible interactions among candidate variables to differentiate between founder entrepreneurs versus NFNE were also addressed, and the model including impulsivity, N450 latency, and impulsivity*N450 interaction came up as the best model for discrimination between founder entrepreneurs and NFNE. A shorter N200, mostly associated with bilateral supplementary motor area activation, revealed a faster capability to make decisions when information was noncongruent or blurred. However, the larger N450 revealed a more intense post-evaluation cognitive process happening in founder entrepreneurs and was accompanied by a greater activation of anterior frontal regions. The whole decision-making process consumed more time and resources in founder entrepreneurs, even if its closure was faster. Attention, memory, and alertness, among other factors, have been invoked

  17. Sporadic impact flashes on the Moon and their implications

    Trigo-Rodriguez, J. M.; Ortiz, J. L.; Llorca, J.; Santos-Sanz, P.

    The systematic impact flash survey that we carried out between 2001 and 2004 resulted in the first unambiguous detection of lunar sporadic impact flashes (Ortiz et al., 2006) and already allowed us to estimate the impact rate of objects on Earth as a function of their incoming energy under the assumption of a certain range of luminous efficiencies of the impact processes. Some present unknown parameters can be constrained in the future by monitoring impact flashes associated with meteoroid streams exhibiting a wide range of impact angles and energies. Here we further investigate some implications of the sporadic impact flashes detected so far and in particular we focus on whether the SMART-1 impact flash can give additional constraints on the luminous efficiency applicable to sporadic impacts, in order to derive more accurate impact rates on Earth. We have compared our derived impact fluxes with those obtained by Ceplecha (2001) and Brown et al. (2002) and we conclude that the present flux in the observed energy range would be underestimated. Finally, we conclude that the large lunar surface coverage and increasing sensitivity of modern video cameras makes this a powerful method to estimate terrestrial impact rates of large bodies that are statistically difficult to be detected from more limited atmospheric coverages characteristic of terrestrial networks.

The context in whichsuchillnessarisesamong womenisdeterminedby different factors that constitute a process that generates delays in requesting medical attention and the onset of timely treatment. This descriptive study with a qualitative approach had as objective to identify factors that resulted in delaying request for medical attention among twelve women who had chest pains or symptoms of cardiac ischemic origin, who registered at the Federico Lleras Acosta Hospital and at the clinics Minerva y Medicádiz of the city of Ibagué during the months of August thru November of 2005. The information was gathered via semi structured interviews based on the topic guidelines of the symptom management process; such was then analyzed under the content analysis technique. Delay generating factors when requesting medical treatment by women who have ischemic coronary chest pains in terms of the phases to manage the symptoms are: valuation of the symptom: characteristics of the type of pain, experience with such pain, unprotected by loved ones, a sense of worry for others, disability, fears, underestimating the symptom, attributing the cause; measuring the response capacity: facing the symptom according to beliefs, and selecting the type of assistance: dependent on others and prior experiences with health providers. The factors found are sequential and interrelated. The study identified that factors such as being dependent on others, loved ones not caring and the feeling of not wanting to worry others were definitive in the delay process.La enfermedad coronaria constituye una de las principales causas de muerte en las mujeres mayores de 45 años.

  5. Exploring the link between environmental identity, behaviors and decision making

    Freed, Allison

    This study was conducted with undergraduate students at a large university to investigate the association between environmental identity, pro-environmental behaviors and environmental decision-making. This study explored how environmental identity as defined by Clayton (2003) influenced the type of pro-environmental behaviors individuals choose to participate in. Environmental decision-making based on Kahneman's (2003, 2011) System 1 and System 2 framework was also assessed in association with environmental identity. A survey including the Environmental Identity Survey (Clayton, 2003), the Environmentally Responsible Behaviors Index (Smith-Sebasto & D'Acosta, 1995), and a Decision Making Questionnaire were administered. After administering the surveys, eight participants were chosen for a 60-minute interview. The quantitative results of the study showed there was a significant relationship between environmental identity and participating in environmental behaviors more often. There was also a significant relation between environmental identity and making the decision to recycle in a fast and automatic way. The interview results showed that participants with both a strong and a weak environmental identity recycled often and thought it was a fast decision. The results of this study show that certain components of environmental identity are important, but other factors like the physical environment and social norms influence the thinking that goes into recycling more than environmental identity alone. This study provides evidence of the importance of social norms and environmental structures in fostering pro-environmental behaviors and influencing the type of thinking that goes into making environmental decisions. Keywords: environmental identity, environmental behaviors, System 1, System 2, recycling.

    In order to bring out a functional and sustainable land use in a highly contaminated mine tailing, firstly environmental risks have to be reduced or eliminated by suitable reclamation activities. Tailing ponds pose environmental hazards, such as acidity and toxic metals reaching to waters through wind and water erosions and leaching. As a consequence, soils have no vegetation and low soil organic matter and nutrients. Various physicochemical and biochemical properties, together with exchangeable metals were measured before, 6 months and 12 months after the application of marble waste and pigs manure as reclamation strategy in a tailing pond from SE Spain to reduce hazards for environment and human health. Three months after the last addition of amendments, eight different native shrub species where planted for phytostabilization. Results showed the pH increased up to neutrality. Aggregates stability, organic carbon, total nitrogen, cation exchange capacity, bioavailable phosphorus and potassium, microbial biomass and microbial activity increased with the application of the amendments, while exchangeable metals drastically decreased (~90%). After one year of plantation, only 20% planted species died, with a high growth of survivals reaching flowering and fructification. This study confirms the high effectiveness of initial applications of marble wastes together with pig manure and plantation of shrub species to initialize the recovery of the ecosystem in bare mine soils under Mediterranean semiarid conditions. Key Words: pig manure, marble waste, heavy metals, mine soil. Acknowledgements This work has been funded by the European Union LIFE+ project MIPOLARE (LIFE09 ENV/ES/000439). J.A.

    Full Text Available The overall goal of this report was to understand river discharge variability to improve conventional water management practices of Mexico’s northern subtropical rivers. This report addresses whether: a river discharge tendencies, patterns and cycles can be detected with proxy and instrumental records; and b annual discharge can be forecasted by stochastic models. Eleven gauging stations of six major rivers; three lowland rivers discharging into the Pacific Ocean (Rios Santa Cruz, Acaponeta, and San Pedro; five upland rivers draining into the Pacific Ocean (Rio San Pedro: Peña del Aguila, Refugio Salcido, San Felipe, Vicente Guerrero and Saltito, one river flowing across the interior Basin (Rio Nazas: Salomé Acosta and two more rivers discharging into the Northern Gulf of Mexico (Rio San Juan: El Cuchillo and Rio Ramos: Pablillos were statistically analyzed. Instrumental recorded daily discharge data (1940-1999 and reconstructed time series data (1860-1940 using dendrochronological analysis delivered annual discharge data to be modeled using autoregressive integrated moving average, ARIMA models. Spectral density analysis, autocorrelation functions and the standardized annual discharge data evaluated annual discharge frequency cycles. Results showed ARIMA models with two autoregressive and one moving average coefficient adequately project river discharge for all gauging stations with four of them showing significant declining patterns since 1860. ARIMA models in combination with autocorrelation and spectral density techniques as well as standardized departures, in agreement with present (2002-2010 observations, forecast a wet episode that may last between 9 and 12 years thereafter entering again into a dry episode. Three dry-wet spell cycles with different time scales (1-2 years; 4-7 years; 9-12 years could be discerned from these analyses that are consistent for all three northern Mexico’s river clusters that emerged from a multivariate

    An integral part of the licensing procedure for the potential nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, involves characterization of the in situ rheology for the design and construction of the facility and the emplacement of canisters containing radioactive waste. The data used to model the thermal and mechanical behavior of the repository and surrounding lithologies include dry and saturated bulk densities, average grain density, porosity, compressional and shear wave velocities, elastic moduli, and compressional and tensional fracture strengths. In this study, a suite of experiments was performed on cores recovered from boreholes UE25 NRG-2, 2A, 2B, and 3 drilled in support of the Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF) at Yucca Mountain. The holes penetrated the Timber Mountain tuff and two thermal/mechanical units of the Paintbrush tuff. The thermal/mechanical stratigraphy was defined by Ortiz to group rock horizons of similar properties for the purpose of simplifying modeling efforts. The relationship between the geologic stratigraphy and the thermal/mechanical stratigraphy for each borehole is presented. The tuff samples in this study have a wide range of welding characteristics (usually reflected in sample porosity), and a smaller range of mineralogy and petrology characteristics. Generally, the samples are silicic, ash-fall tuffs that exhibit large variability in their elastic and strength properties.

    Full Text Available Gabriel Ortiz1, Len Fromer21Pediatric Pulmonary Services, El Paso, TX; 2Department of Family Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USAAbstract: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD is a progressive and debilitating but preventable and treatable disease characterized by cough, phlegm, dyspnea, and fixed or incompletely reversible airway obstruction. Most patients with COPD rely on primary care practices for COPD management. Unfortunately, only about 55% of US outpatients with COPD receive all guideline-recommended care. Proactive and consistent primary care for COPD, as for many other chronic diseases, can reduce hospitalizations. Optimal chronic disease management requires focusing on maintenance rather than merely acute rescue. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH, which implements the chronic care model, is a promising framework for primary care transformation. This review presents core PCMH concepts and proposes multidisciplinary team-based PCMH care strategies for COPD.Keywords: Patient-Centered Medical Home, chronic care model, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, patient education, physician assistants, nurse practitioners

  16. Anisotropic thermo-mechanical damage modelling for cementitious materials at high temperature

    The behavior of concrete at elevated temperatures is important for an assessment of integrity (strength and durability) of structures exposed to high temperature environment, in application such as fire exposure, smelting plants, nuclear installations. This paper we develop numerical algorithms for the integration of a thermo-mechanical damage model for concrete at high temperature. The model has been derived within the consistent framework of thermodynamics, drawing on the iso-thermal damage of Ortiz and Yazdani and Schreyer and the thermo-mechanical coupling aspects of Simo and Miehe. In addition, account has been taken of the known stress-temperature dependence of concrete through the descriptions of thermal and thermo-mechanical damage, and the thermal softening. Mechanical damage is related directly to compliance, with additional flexibility due to thermal damage. Explicit expressions have been derived for the free energy including elastic energy, damage due to micro-crack formation, thermal-mechanical coupling and thermal energy. The damage function is shown to be flexible in being able to capture the temperature dependent shape and size of failure surfaces: the model generally incorporates features of anisotropic damage, dilatation and inelastic strain responses. In a wider context, the damage model presented forms part of a study aimed at the development of a completely generalized analysis of concrete at transient elevated temperatures, including the coupling of damage, hygral diffusion and heat conduction through the material.

    2015-05-01

    Knots and links are fascinating and intricate topological objects that have played a prominent role in physical and life sciences. Their influence spans from DNA and molecular chemistry to vortices in superfluid helium, defects in liquid crystals and cosmic strings in the early universe. Here, we show that knotted structures also exist in a peculiar class of three dimensional topological insulators--the Hopf insulators. In particular, we demonstrate that the spin textures of Hopf insulators in momentum space are twisted in a nontrivial way, which implies various knot and link structures. We further illustrate that the knots and nontrivial spin textures can be probed via standard time-of-flight images in cold atoms as preimage contours of spin orientations in stereographic coordinates. The extracted Hopf invariants, knots, and links are validated to be robust to typical experimental imperfections. Our work establishes the existence of knotted structures in cold atoms and may have potential applications in spintronics and quantum information processings. We thank X.-J. Liu and G. Ortiz for helpful discussions. S.T.W., D.L.D., and L.M.D. are supported by the NBRPC 2011CBA00300, the IARPA MUSIQC program, the ARO and the AFOSR MURI program.

    Interpretation of hydraulic tests performed at a carbonate rock site for CO2 storage Berta Gómez, Sheila Fernández, Tobias Roetting, Lurdes Martínez, Silvia de Simone, Joaquim Soler, Jesus Carrera, Gema Ortiz, Christophe Huber, Carlos de Dios Proper design of CO2 geological storage facilities requires knowledge of the reservoir hydraulic parameters. Specifically, permeability controls the flux of CO2, the rate at which it dissolves, local and regional pressure buildup and the likelihood of induced seismicity. Permeability is obtained from hydraulic tests, which may yield local permeability, which controls injectivity, and large scale permeability, which controls pressure buildup at the large scale. If pressure response measurements are obtained at different elevations, hydraulic tests may also yield vertical permeability, which controls the rate at which CO2 dissolves. The objective of this work is to discuss the interpretation of hydraulic tests at deep reservoirs and the conditions under which these permeabilities can be obtained. To achieve this objective, we have built a radially symmetric model, including a skin and radial as well as vertical heterogeneity. We use this model to simulate hydraulic tests with increasing degrees of complexity about the medium response. We start by assuming Darcy flow, then add coupled mechanical effects (fractures opening) and, finally, we add thermal effects. We discuss how these affect the conventional interpretation of the tests and how to identify their presence. We apply these findings to the interpretation of hydraulic tests at Hontomin.

  20. Thermodynamic stability criteria for a quantum memory based on stabilizer and subsystem codes

    Chesi, Stefano; Bravyi, Sergey; Terhal, Barbara M

    2009-01-01

    We discuss and review several thermodynamic criteria that have been introduced to characterize the thermal stability of a self-correcting quantum memory. We first examine the use of symmetry-breaking fields in analyzing the properties of self-correcting quantum memories in the thermodynamic limit: we show that the thermal expectation values of all logical operators vanish for any stabilizer and any subsystem code in any spatial dimension. This result sheds doubt on the usefulness of this concept, called `thermal fragility' in [Z. Nussinov and G. Ortiz, Phys. Rev. B 77, 064302 (2008).], as a stability criterion. On the positive side, we generalize the results in [R. Alicki et al., arXiv:0811.0033.] to obtain a general upper bound on the relaxation rate of a quantum memory at nonzero temperature, assuming that the quantum memory interacts via a Markovian master equation with a thermal bath. This upper bound is applicable to quantum memories based on either stabilizer or subsystem codes.

  1. Middle Pleistocene palaeoenvironmental changes of the eastern Canary Islands - revealed by the Mála dune-palaeosol-sequence at Lanzarote (Canary Islands)

    von Suchodoletz, H.; Zöller, L.; Hilgers, A.; Radtke, U.; Faust, D.

    2012-04-01

    The Canary Islands are located at the transition between the Mediterranean and the Saharan climate off NW-Africa. Thus, they are a key area for the investigation of palaeoenvironmental changes. Several terrestrial studies investigated the palaeoenvironmental development of that region during the later part of the last glacial cycle. However, apart from recent investigations of "vega" sediments on Lanzarote Island (Suchodoletz et al. 2010) the palaeoenvironmental evolution during the Middle Pleistocene is hardly studied yet, basically due to the lack of reliable geochronological data. The Mála dune-palaeosol-sequence is located in the north of Lanzarote. It consists of marine shell detritus originally blown out from the insular shelf during periods of low global sea level, and to a small part of Saharan dust and fine quartz sand. The aeolian layers are intercalated with up to eight silty-clayey palaeosol horizons. Unlike the dune sands, the soils indicate stable landscape conditions with trapping of Saharan dust. Using a combination of ESR and luminescence dating techniques, we are able to place this sequence into the Middle Pleistocene, in contrast to former investigations based on 14C datings postulating a Late Pleistocene age (Ortiz et al. 2006). As a consequence, clayey-silty palaeosols represent periods of stable landscape conditions in the Canarian region during the Middle Pleistocene, which we compare with marine palaeoclimatic studies from the area.

  2. Multiscale Modeling of Shock-Induced Phase Transitions in Iron

    2004-03-01

    Multiscale Modeling of Shock-Induced Phase Transitions in Iron Emily Carter, Kyle Caspersen, Adrian Lew and Michael Ortiz We investigate the bcc to hcp phase transition in iron under both pressure and shear. We use DFT to map out the energy landscape of uniformly deformed iron, including its equation of state and its elastic moduli as a function of volume. >From these data we construct a nonlinear-elastic energy density which gives the energy density for arbitrary - not necessarily small - deformations. The energy density contains two wells corresponding to the bcc and hcp phases. We take this multi-well energy density as a basis for the investigation of the effect of shear on the phase diagram of iron. We allow for mixed states consisting alternating lamellae of bcc and hcp phases, and, for each macroscopic deformation, we determine the optimal microstructure of the mixed state by energy minimization using a sequential-lamination algorithm. We find that the superposition of shearing deformation on a volume change has the effect of inducing mixed states of varying spatial complexity, and of markedly lowering the critical transformation pressure. Indeed, we find that shear must be taken into consideration in order to obtain agreement with measured transformation pressures. Finally, we demonstrate how the microstructure model can be integrated into large-scale finite element calculations of shocked iron.

    Full Text Available An original and sensitive filmmaker, Gustavo Fontán goes beyond classic transpositions to venture into a poet’s obsessions, aesthetic and atmospheres. He has done so with the work of Jacobo Fijman, Juan L. Ortiz and Jorge Calvetti – to name just a few. In this paper I intend to explore El paisaje invisible, a short film by Fontán that brings us closer to Calvetti. I will focus on the director’s strategies – characteristic of the cinematographic language - that convey the poet’s mythical world and aesthetic, and I will analyze the union of both artists’ poetics. Finally, I would like to offer a brief explanation of the title of this article, which is drawn from a reflection by Calvetti: “All inspiration is born with its own form or forms. The same subject can be written as a narrative or in verse. Why not? They are different renditions of faithfulness.” I believe cinema is another rendition.

  5. Visões de brasileiros sobre América Latina: do isolamento à integração

    Regina Crespo

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The political and cultural distance that still prevails between Brazil and the Hispanic American countries is being gradually diminished in the political plane, mainly with the conformation of regional blocks and cooperation agreements. In the specific plane of social thought, this distance also prevails, but it is possible to observe that the Latin American intellectuals have shared historically a preoccupation about reflecting on continental themes and defining a place for Latin America in a worldwide context. In the beginning there existed a weak bond between Brazilians and their Hispanic American equals. Nevertheless, in the fifties, with the CEPAL movement, and in the seventies, with the Dependency theory, began a greater exchange. Since the late eighties, the insertion of Latin America in the globalized world and the relation between culture and modernity in the subcontinent were themes that stimulated the dialogue between Brazilian and Hispanic American intellectuals, such as Renato Ortiz, Octavio Ianni and Martin Barbero, who are analyzed in this article.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Com base no contexto cultural em que a poética cria seu próprio sentido de representar o real através da reconquista e autonomia da linguagem, o presente artigo propõe discutir os parâmetros críticos da nova poesia lírica. Para isso, recorreremos ao subjetivismo anacrônico para demonstrar a inserção de uma multiplicidade de vozes individuais inseridas no sistema literário pela contemporaneidade. Pretende-se, ainda, promover uma reflexão sobre o caminho mais recente da poesia lírica brasileira e portuguesa pela renovação e solidificação dos aspectos técnicos e formais, mediante o discurso de legitimação. Por fim, o trabalho é resultado de uma pesquisa realizada na disciplina de Configurações da poesia lírica contemporânea: diálogo entre Portugal e Brasil, ministrado pela Professora Doutora Goiandira Ortiz de Camargo.

  8. Harmonic model of graphene based on a tight binding interatomic potential

    Mendez, J. P.; Ariza, M. P.

    2016-08-01

    Like in many other materials, the presence of topological defects in graphene has been demonstrated to modify its behavior, thus enhancing features aimed at several technological applications, more specifically, its electronic and transport properties. In particular, pristine defect-free graphene has been shown to be of limited use for semiconductor-based electronics, whereas the presence of individual or cluster defect rings along grain boundaries hinders electron transport and introduce a transport gap, unveiling the possibility of novel electronic device applications based on the structural engineering of graphene-based materials. In this work, we present an atomic bondwise force-constant model from the tight binding potential by Xu et al. (1992), that accounts for the electron-mechanical coupling effects in graphene. First we verify that this computational scheme is capable of accurately predicting the defect energies and core structures of dislocation dipoles based on the theory of discrete dislocations of Ariza and Ortiz (2005). In order to demonstrate our ability to characterize the effect of patterned distributions of structural defects on the electronic structure of graphene, we present the electronic band structures and density of states curves of several defective graphene sheets.

  9. Gravity data inversion to determine 3D topographycal density contrast of Banten area, Indonesia based on fast Fourier transform

    Windhari, Ayuty; Handayani, Gunawan

    2015-04-01

    The 3D inversion gravity anomaly to estimate topographical density using a matlab source code from gridded data provided by Parker Oldenburg algorithm based on fast Fourier transform was computed. We extend and improved the source code of 3DINVERT.M invented by Gomez Ortiz and Agarwal (2005) using the relationship between Fourier transform of the gravity anomaly and the sum of the Fourier transform from the topography density. We gave density contrast between the two media to apply the inversion. FFT routine was implemented to construct amplitude spectrum to the given mean depth. The results were presented as new graphics of inverted topography density, the gravity anomaly due to the inverted topography and the difference between the input gravity data and the computed ones. It terminates when the RMS error is lower than pre-assigned value used as convergence criterion or until maximum of iterations is reached. As an example, we used the matlab program on gravity data of Banten region, Indonesia.

Qual era o seu propósito num mundo onde a academia real, herbalistas, curandeiros/as, exorcistas e charlatães competiam pela atenção da população? O artigo apresenta os diferentes grupos que atuaram, ou pretendiam atuar, em prol da saúde na Inglaterra do século 18, e compara o conteúdo do guia Primitive Physic[k] com suas propostas e estratégias terapêuticas. Conclua-se que uma parte significativa do guia é composta por orientações da academia real de medicina, mas que sempre se favorecem remédios caseiros, com ingredientes acessíveis para as classes mais humildes. Quanto à chamada Spiritual Physick, menciona-se a oração como medida complementar, mas ignora-se plenamente a prática do exorcismo.

    2015-05-01

    Kazan Federal University has held the annual International Youth School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" since 1997. The choice of the topic is not accidental. Kazan is the home of photon echo which was predicted at Kazan Physical-Technical Institute in 1963 by Prof. U.G. Kopvil'em and V.R. Nagibarov and observed in Columbia University by N.A. Kurnit, I.D. Abella, and S.R. Hartmann in 1964. Since then, photon echo has become a powerful tool of coherent optical spectroscopy and optical information processing, which have been developed here in Kazan in close collaboration between Kazan Physical-Technical Institute and Kazan Federal University. The main subjects of the XVIII International Youth School are: Nonlinear and coherent optics; Atomic and molecular spectroscopy; Coherent laser spectroscopy; Problems of quantum optics; Quantum theory of radiation; and Nanophotonics and Scanning Probe Microscopy. The unchallenged organizers of that school are Kazan Federal University and Kazan E.K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute. The rector of the School is Professor Myakzyum Salakhov, and the vice-rector is Professor Vitaly Samartsev. The International Youth Scientific School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" follows the global pattern of comprehensive studies of matter properties and their interaction with electromagnetic fields. Since 1997 more than 100 famous scientists from the USA, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia have given plenary lecture presentations. Here over 1000 young scientists had an opportunity to participate in lively discussions about the latest scientific news. Many young people have submitted interesting reports on photonics, quantum electronics, laser physics, quantum optics, traditional optical and laser spectroscopy, non-linear optics, material science and nanotechnology. Here we are publishing the fullsize papers prepared from the most interesting lectures and reports selected by the Program Committee of the School. The

    2014-11-01

    Editors: M.S.Tagirov, V.V.Semashko, A.S.Nizamutdinov Kazan is the motherland of Electronic Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) which was discovered in Kazan State University in 1944 by prof. E.K.Zavojskii. Since the Young Scientist School of Magnetic Resonance run by professor G.V.Skrotskii from MIPT stopped its work, Kazan took up the activity under the initiative of academician A.S.Borovik-Romanov. Nowadays this school is rejuvenated and the International Youth Scientific School studying "Actual problems of the magnetic resonance and its application" is developing. Traditionally the main subjects of the School meetings are: Magnetic Resonance in Solids, Chemistry, Geology, Biology and Medicine. The unchallenged organizers of that school are Kazan Federal University and Kazan E. K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute. The rector of the School is professor Murat Tagirov, vice-rector - professor Valentine Zhikharev. Since 1997 more than 100 famous scientists from Germany, France, Switzerland, USA, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, Moldavia, Georgia provided plenary lecture presentations. Almost 700 young scientists have had an opportunity to participate in discussions of the latest scientific developments, to make their oral reports and to improve their knowledge and skills. To enhance competition among the young scientists, reports take place every year and the Program Committee members name the best reports, the authors of which are invited to prepare full-scale scientific papers. Since 2013 the International Youth Scientific School "Actual problems of the magnetic resonance and its application", following the tendency for comprehensive studies of matter properties and its interaction with electromagnetic fields, expanded "the field of interest" and opened the new section: Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy. Many young people have submitted interesting reports on photonics, quantum electronics, laser physics, quantum optics, traditional optical and laser spectroscopy, non

    Full Text Available Se cumplieron recientemente los cien años de la venida de don Miguel de Unamuno a Salamanca. Al cabo de este centenario queremos rendir nuestro pequeño homenaje al rector del Estudio salmantino evocando las relaciones entre el escritor vasco y su tierra adoptiva. Por otra parte, sugerimos el aprovechamiento didáctico en el aula de un buen número de páginas de recuerdos, andanzas, visiones y querencias íntimas dedicadas por don Miguel a la ciudad y al campo de Salamanca. Niños y adolescentes de nuestra tierra pueden llegar a conocer literariamente a tan insigne escritor por medio de poemas y textos en prosa llamados a sellar con letras de oro la muy peculiar relación de Unamuno con los rincones y callejas de la ciudad, con las llanuras y cimas de su Castilla o con las verduras del Tormes. El autor de Niebla es también el hombre volcado en el paisaje que lo mece, el paisano que se lanza en busca de las gentes sencillas del campo procurando, al menos, su consuelo. Si la misión de despertar al dormido, ligada a obras mayores, queda especialmente reservada a los adultos, otros textos de don Miguel nos permiten llegar hasta los más jóvenes con versos y párrafos que hablan y cantan a los múltiples protagonistas de la intrahistoria. De este modo, podemos dar cuenta, con diligencia y sencillez, de un autor ilustre al tiempo que conocemos creaciones literarias concordantes temáticamente con la realidad que nos envuelve. La misma satisfacción halagadora que sentía Unamuno charlando con los viejos campesinos o leyendo a los gañanes consejas, cuentos y poesías, puede continuar en nosotros al proyectar en el aula sus estampas poéticas, su andanzas y visiones. A los deseos del rector de ser útil a la Escuela Normal de Salamanca, añadimos hogaño los nuestros propios de aprovechar pedagógicamente los lienzos literarios del poeta y paseante. Acaso, así, aprendamos todos a ver y sentir mejor los paisajes urbanos de la ciudad charra y sus

  17. A New Two-phase Flow Model Applied to the 2007 Crater Lake Break-out Lahar, Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand

    2010-12-01

    The 2007 Crater Lake break-out lahar, Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand, is a complex but well-characterized natural debris flow that follows an intricate course over an array of topographic features (see Manville et al., this conference). Detailed digital terrain data (DEM) and accurate flow characterization allow us to test our computational model with an unusually high level of control for such a large natural flood wave. The new two-phase flow code is imbedded within the TITAN2D framework (Patra et al. 2005) that is widely used in hazard assessment for both dry (granular) and wet (debris flow) flows (Murcia et al., 2010). Because TITAN2D is actually valid for dry flows (avalanches) we developed a new two-phase model based on balance laws for mass and momentum for each phase. The granular material is assumed to obey a Coulomb constitutive relation and the fluid is assumed to be inviscid. The Darcy-Weisbach formulation is used to account for bed friction, and a phenomenological drag coefficient mediates the momentum exchange between phases. The resulting system of 6 partial differential equations are depth averaged and correspond to the Savage and Hutter model in the limit of no fluid, and to the typical shallow water solutions (Ortiz, et al., 2005) for pure water. This model is capable of simulating particle volumetric fractions as dilute as 0.001 and as concentrated as 0.55. To confirm the usefulness of the new code for complex flows we used data from four observation stations at Ruapehu located at runout distances of 2 km, 5 km, 7 km and 9 km. The specific flow data that we compare with the model outcomes include: 1) arrival time of the flood front, 2) maximum flood depth, and 3) flow velocity. The computed values for these flow characteristics are all within about ± 10% of the observed figures.

Se analiza un corpus fotográfico del libro "Marchas" (Yutronic y Ortiz, 2012, desde un marco teórico-metodológico que considera aportaciones de los Estudios Críticos del Discurso y la Semiótica Social. Se plantea que las fotografías de las marchas constituyen una narración capaz de organizar significados que estructuran formas de actuación e identificación política en oposición, excluyendo a otros participantes críticos del conflicto educativo, como las élites políticas y económicas. Se construye así un tipo de confrontación entre jóvenes y fuerzas policiales, que simplifica la lucha ideológica y refuerza estereotipos sobre grupos cuya acción, al ser objeto de una mediatización permanente, es cognitivamente reforzada.

  3. Thermal-hydraulic characteristics of a next-generation reactor relying on steam generator secondary side cooling for primary depressurization and long-term passive core cooling

    System experiments were conducted at the ROSA-V large scale test facility (LSTF) for investigation of new safety systems to mitigate consequences of postulated accidents in pressurized water rectors (PWRs). Tested systems included a steam generator (SG) secondary-side automatic depressurization system (SADS) and gravity-driven injection system (GDIS), which are candidates of safety systems for some next-generation PWR designs. The experimental results showed several thermal-hydraulic behaviors typical of these safety systems, including the primary depressurization due to natural circulation cooling, a nonuniform flow behavior among SG U-tubes, an accumulation of the non-condensable gas originally contained in the injected water, liquid holdup in U-tubes due to the countercurrent flow limiting, and long-term passive core cooling with the GDIS injection. From the assessment of the RELAP5 MOD3 code using the present data, it was found that the inability of the code to predict the U-tube nonuniform flow behavior resulted in overprediction of the primary depressurization rate at a pressure less than 1 MPa, and exaggerated oscillation of the natural circulation flow rate in the primary loop.

  4. Estimation of fracture toughness of cast stainless steels during thermal aging in LWR systems

    A procedure and correlations are presented for predicting the change in fracture toughness of cast stainless steel components due to thermal aging during service in light water rectors (LWRs) at 280--330 degrees C (535--625 degrees F). The fracture toughness J-R curve and Charpy-impact energy of aged cast stainless steels are estimated from known mineral in formation. Fracture toughness of a specific cast stainless steel is estimated from the extent and kinetics of thermal embrittlement. The extent of thermal embrittlement is characterized by the room-temperature ''normalized'' Charpy-impact energy. A correlation for the extent of embrittlement at ''saturation,'' i.e., the minimum impact energy that would be achieved for the material after long-term aging, is given in terms of a material parameter, Φ, which is determined from the chemical composition. The fracture toughness J-R curve for the material is then obtained from correlations between room-temperature Charpy-impact energy and fracture toughness parameters. Fracture toughness as a function of time and temperature of reactor service is estimated from the kinetics of thermal embrittlement, which is determined from chemical composition. A common ''lower-bound'' J-R curve for cast stainless steels with unknown chemical composition is also defined for a given material specification, ferrite content, and temperature. Examples for estimating impact strength and fracture toughness of cast stainless steel components during reactor service are describes. 24 refs., 39 figs., 2 tabs

    An experiment was performed in the Experimental Breeder Rector-II (EBR-II) in the 1990s to show that metallic fast reactor fuel could be used in reactors with a single, once-through core. To prove the long duration, high burnup, high neutron exposure capability an experiment where the fuel pin was designed with a very large fission gas plenum and very low fuel smeared density (SD). The experiment, X496, operated to only 8.3 at.% burnup because the EBR-II reactor was scheduled for shut-down at that time. Many of the examinations of the fuel pins only funded recently with the resurgence of reactor designs using very high-burnup fuel. The results showed that, despite the low smeared density of 59% the fuel swelled radially to contact the cladding, fission gas release appeared to be slightly higher than demonstrated in conventional 75%SD fuel tests and axial growth was about the same as 75% SD fuel. There were axial positions in some of the fuel pins which showed evidence of fuel restructuring and an absence of fission products with low melting points and gaseous precursors (Cs and Rb). A model to investigate whether these areas may have overheated due to a loss of bond sodium indicates that it is a possible explanation for the fuel restructuring and something to be considered for fuel performance modeling of low SD fuel.

    The work of the institute is directed to the assessment and enhancement of the safety of technical plants and to the increase of the efficiency and environmental sustainability of those facilities. Subjects of investigation are equally nuclear plants and installations of process industries. To achieve the goals mentioned, the institute is mainly engaged in the scientific fields of thermal fluid dynamics including magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) and materials sciences. In 2003, the ISR worked on the following main scientific projects. Sub-programme: Plant and Rector Safety. Project: accident analysis of nuclear reactors, safety of materials and components, particle and radiation transport, safety and efficiency of chemical processes. Sub-programme: Thermal Fluid Dynamics. Project: magneto-hydrodynamics, thermal fluid dynamics of multiphase systems. Considerable progress could also be achieved in the CFD simulation of two-phase flows. New approaches for the forces acting on steam bubbles in a water flow could be developed and implemented into the CFX code in close cooperation with the CFX developer ANSYS/CFX. The qualified models allow to simulate the evolution of bubble size specific radial void distribution profiles along the flow path. These theoretical studies and the related experiments at the Rossendorf TOPFLOW test facility represent an important part of the German CFD network that aims at the improvement of thermal hydraulic calculation methods in reactor safety.

    Research at Institutt for energiteknikk (IFE) comprises both nuclear and non-nuclear activities. The main nuclear program is centered on the OECD Halden Reactor Project. 19 participating countries and about 100 organisations is involved in the project. The Project is operated by a staff of 280 persons. In the autumn of 1996 the participating organizations reached agreement to continue their research collaboration for a further 3-year period (1997 to 1999). An extensive experimental program was carried out in 1996 using the Halden reactor (HBWR), partly for the joint international program, and partly for contract work for member countries. The main aim of this work is to improve the safety and reliability of existing nuclear power plants. The experimental equipment in the Halden reactor makes it ideal for simulating various operating conditions in different types of rectors. Processes such as corrosion in fuel cladding materials and fracture propagation in irradiated materials under the influence of additives in the coolant water can be studied. In an on-going study, fuel of Russian origin is being compared with modern western fuel. The results, being the first of their kind that are openly available, form an important bases for safety assessments of Russian VVER reactors. The man-machine laboratory is used to study how new technologies influence the operator and to develop computer based systems for improving the safety and accessibility of complex processes.

  10. Feasibility study of advanced fuel burning nuclear reactors

    An investigation has been conducted to determine both physics, engineering and economic aspects of fusion power reactors based on magnetic confinement and on burning advanced fuels (AFs). DT burning Tokamaks are taken as reference concept. We show that the attractive features of advanced fuels, in particular of neutronlean proton-based AFs, can be combined, in appropriately designed AF reactors (high beta), with power densities comparable to or even higher than those achievable in DT Tokamaks. Moreover we identify physical requirements which would assure Q values well above unity. As an example a semi-open confinement scheme is analyzed based on a self-consistent plasma calculation. We find that a mirror, even if only ''semi-open'' as a result of strong diamagnetism, can barely be expected to achieve high Q values. Therefore confinement schemes such as compact tori, multipole surmacs etc. may be required to burn AFs. We conclude that the economics of AF reactors, as determined by the nuclear boiler power density, may be superior to that of DT-rectors if low recirculating power fractions can be obtained by appropriate plasma tayloring (high fractional transfer of fusion power to ions required). A more detailed investigation is suggested for proton-based fuel cycles. (orig.)

  11. Decontamination technology assessment

    This study was conducted by the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to identify and technically assess foreign decontamination and decommissioning (D and D) technology developments that may represent significant improvements over D and D technology currently available or under development in the United States. Technology need areas for nuclear power reactor decommissioning operations were identified and prioritized using the results of past light water rector (LWR) decommissioning studies to quantitatively evaluate the potential for reducing cost and decommissioning worker radiation dose for each major decommissioning activity. Based on these identified needs, current foreign D and D technologies of potential interest to the U.S. were identified through personal contacts and the collection and review of an extensive body of D and D literature. These technologies were then assessed qualitatively to evaluate their uniqueness, potential for a significant reduction in D and D costs and/or worker radiation dose, development status, and other factors affecting their value and applicability to U.S. needs

  12. Nuclear reactor

    In an improved reactor core for a high conversion BWR reactor, Pu-breeding type BWR type reactor, Pu-breeding type BWR type rector, FEBR type reactor, etc., two types of fuel assemblies are loaded such that fuel assemblies using a channel box of a smaller irradiation deformation ratio are loaded in a high conversion region, while other fuel assemblies are loaded in a burner region. This enables to suppress the irradiation deformation within an allowable limit in the high conversion region where the fast neutron flux is high and the load weight from the inside of the channel box due to the pressure loss is large. At the same time, the irradiation deformation can be restricted within an allowable limit without deteriorating the neutron economy in the burner region in which fast neutron flux is low and the load weight from the inside of the channel box is small since a channel box with smaller neutron absorption cross section or reduced wall thickness is charged. As a result, it is possible to prevent structural deformations such as swelling of the channel box, bending of the entire assemblies, bending of fuel rods, etc. (K.M.)

  14. Plasma research. Final report, October 1, 1968--December 31, 1976

    The research in plasma physics and controlled thermonuclear research at M.I.T. has evolved from a relatively long tradition of basic theoretical and experimental contributions, during the period covered by this contract. A major commitment to research in magnetically confined plasmas was undertaken with the Alcator program that began in 1969 and with the theoretical effort necessary to back this up. The Alcator A device was brought to successful operation and, after the identification of a sequence of plasma regimes that have been realized in it, let to attainment record values of plasma density, of the confinement parameter n tau, and of the degree of plasma purity. A second more advanced device, Alcator C, has been designed and is presently under construction. A line of toroidal experiments characterized by relatively low cost and extreme simplicity has been developed in order to study basic plasma physics problems related to magnetic confinement and relevant processes of plasma decontamination. The devices that have been operated are Versator I, now discontinued, Rector, with non-circular cross section, Erasmus, with small aspect ratio and Versator II. A number of theoretical contributions concerning the interpretation of the regimes found in Alcator, runaway phenomena, new trapped particle instabilities, internal resistive modes, etc. have been given and presented in publications or appropriate meetings. A special consideration, within the theoretical effort, has been devoted to the study of plasma regimes that are important in devising future experiments of thermonuclear interest

  16. Should Manitoba join the nuclear club?

    Manitoba hosts the first nuclear community in Western Canada. AECL's Whiteshell Laboratories in Pinawa carried out research on reactor safety, waste management and a number of reactor types including small reactors for powering remote communities. The Whiteshell site is now being decommissioned but will likely remain under CNSC license for the next century. The site is ideal for a new power reactor with its location on a major river, a major transmission corridor that runs through the site, and its proximity to major markets. With the relatively small grid sizes in the Prairie Provinces, it makes sense for the provincial utilities to cooperate in the building of major projects so as not to overwhelm individual utilities with a large power rector. What is needed now is a formal feasibility study to address the economic factors in favour of a nuclear plant compared with the cost of remote hydro dams and expensive transmission costs. With nuclear expansion now envisioned both east and west of Manitoba it makes sense for the province to become involved. Because of its history and knowledgeable and supportive population Pinawa could readily host a nuclear power plant or any other nuclear operation. (author)

    The original name of the yanjing xiangtu zhi ( Local Gazetteer of Yanjing) in the Xu-antong period ( of the Qing Dynasty ) was the ba-tang yanjing xiangtu zhi ( Local Gazetteer of Yan-jing in Batang) .Judging from two prefaces of the gazetteer , the gazetteer was named the batang yan-jing xiangtu dili zhi ( Local Geographical Gazetteer of Yanjing in Batang) when it was compiled , and the word “geographical” was deleted when the book was printed .Duan Pengrui , the author of this gazetteer , was appointed as an investigation com-mittee member of Yanjing in the early years of Xu-antong period , and later was promoted as the di-rector of shezhiju ( second -level administrative subdivision ) due to his contribution .Consequent-ly, the book was compiled when he was in Yan-jing.The Local Gazetteer of Yanjing is a unique lo-cal gazetteer related to the Tibetan region in the Qing dynasty (1644-1912).Through a compari-son of the assessed materials and various editions of the book , this article makes some discussions on the “map” included in Local Gazetter of Yanjing.

  18. The use of software quality assurance techniques in the validation of results in nuclear thermal-hydraulic safety research

    The Nuclear Engineering Department at Israel Electric Company has been engaged for a number of years in a joint research agreement with the Technion Nuclear Reactor Research Group on various thermal-hydraulic aspects of reactor design and safety. Besides developing their own analytical models, the researchers rely heavily on the RELAPS computer code in their analyses. The RELAPS series are general purpose, thermal-hydraulic system codes, used to simulate system response (such as the RCS) to transients and accidents. They are based on solving the equations of conservation of mass, energy and momentum within the system being modeled, where the model is a series of control volumes connected by junctions. The equations are solved simultaneously in each volume and junction using a finite difference numerical scheme. As an example, a recent report refers to containment response to a large LOCA in an AP600-like advanced rector. This work has been performed using RELAPS/Mod2. Accidents like LOCA represent design base events necessary to verify the adequacy of the emergency core cooling system, the passive containment system and other safety systems. The validation of simulation results is therefore important to the IEC staff responsible for monitoring the research. (author); 3 refs

  20. N Reactor Lessons Learned workshop

    This report describes a workshop designed to introduce participants to a process, or model, for adapting LWR Safety Standards and Analysis Methods for use on rector designs significantly different than LWR. The focus of the workshop is on the ''Lessons Learned'' from the multi-year experience in the operation of N Reactor and the efforts to adapt the safety standards developed for commercial light water reactors to a graphite moderated, water cooled, channel type reactor. It must be recognized that the objective of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the operation of a non-LWR in a LWR regulatory world. The total scope of this topic would take weeks to provide a through overview. The objective of this workshop is to provide an introduction and hopefully establish a means to develop a longer term dialogue for technical exchange. This report provides outline of the workshop, a proposed schedule of the workshop, and a description of the tasks will be required to achieve successful completion of the project
