Norplant® acceptors in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background : The Norplant contraceptive implant has since been an accepted long-term steroidal method of contraception in Jos. It is now competing favorably with the older methods in our center. Method :A retrospective study was carried out to review the trend and characteristics of the acceptors of this relatively new contraceptive method in Jos. Results :During the 26 months period of study, May 2002 to July 2004, a total of 3,793 women accepted modern contraceptive methods within the period of study. Two hundred and sixty (260 had Norplant insertion after due counseling, constituting 6.8% of all contraceptive methods in the center. All clients were married. Their age ranged from 18-48 years with a mean of 33.05 ± 5.33 years. The women were of parity 0-8 and a mean of 3.57 ± 1.58. They were also of weight ranging from 32-95 kg with a mean of 65.78 ± 11.74. Two hundred and forty eight 95.4% of them were literate. Eighty five percent (222 of the clients had used other methods of contraception before switching over to the Norplant implants. Ten percent of the women were continuing with the Norplant after previous usage, and continuation rate was 99.2%. The commonest source of information about the method was from health workers at family planning clinics in Jos. Conclusion :Norplant contraceptive method was used by about 7% of all clients accepting modern contraceptive methods. The women accepting the method were of lower age and parity compared with that of other methods. Majority of the clients switched from other methods to Norplant.

Seroprevalence of Canine Brucellosis in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Serological screening of dogs for brucellosis is not a routine practice in veterinary clinics in Jos. Hence, this study was conducted to determine the prevalence of brucellosis in dogs in Jos North and South Local Government Areas (LGA of Plateau State. A total of 350 sera samples were collected from dogs presented to the clinics. The samples were analysed using Rose Bengal Plate Test (RBPT which gave a prevalence of 113 (32.3%. The RBPT positive samples were then subjected to Competitive Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (c-ELISA and 33 (29.2% of them were positive. Sero-prevalence increased with age using the c-ELISA as 1 (20.0% of the 5 dogs between 0-6 months, 2 (22.2% of the 9 dogs between 6-11 months and 30 (30.3% of the 99 dogs above 11 months were positive. Based on sex, 6 (28.6% of the 21 male dogs and 27 (29.3% of the 92 female dogs were positive for c-ELISA. Breed-based prevalence recorded 27 (31.0% of 87 exotic breeds, 1 (16.7% of 6 cross-breeds a nd 5 (25.0% of 20 indigenous breeds of dogs assayed. Dogs in Jos South had a higher prevalence of 29 (29.6% of the 98 dogs tested than those in Jos North which had 4 (26.7% of the 15 dogs tested. However, there was no statistical significance between brucella infection and age, sex, breed or location of dogs sampled (p>0.05. This study indicates that canine brucellosis is prevalent in Jos thus, enlightenment and awareness programmes to educate the dog owners should be carried out by the relevant authorities.

Genetic diversity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Nigeria has a high tuberculosis incidence, and genotyping studies of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex (MTC in the country are necessary in order to improve our understanding of the epidemic. Methods Isolates of MTC were isolated from cases of pulmonary tuberculosis in Jos, North Central region of Nigeria during 2006-2008. Drug susceptibility test (DST was performed on 77 of 111 isolates by proportion method on Lowenstein Jensen (LJ slope while genotyping of mycobacterial DNA was performed by spoligotyping. The SpolDB4 database and the model-based program 'spotclust' were used to assign isolates to families, subfamilies and variants. Results A total of 111 pulmonary isolates from consecutive tuberculosis patients in the city of Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria were spoligotyped. A total of 84 (76% of the isolates belonged to the Latin American Mediterranean (LAM family. Of these, 78 isolates were assigned to the LAM10 lineage. Among these, 66 exhibited identical spoligopatterns. Drug susceptibility profiles obtained were not consistently associated with any spoligopattern. Conclusions The dominance of few M. tuberculosis lineages suggests either a high rate of transmission, frequent import of closely related strains, or a highly conserved genotype. It remains to be confirmed whether the predominance of identical LAM10 represent an outbreak. Spoligotyping was useful to gain an overall understanding of the local TB epidemic. This study demonstrated that the incidence of TB in Jos, Nigeria may be caused by a few successful M. tuberculosis families, dominated by the LAM10 family.

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background : Teenage pregnancy constitutes a major health and social problem the world over. The objectives of the study were to determine the incidence of teenage pregnancy and to compare the socio-demographic characteristics, booking/delivery ratio and pregnancy outcomes of teenagers and the control in Jos University Teaching Hospital. Method : A prospective case-controlled study of the pregnancy outcome in 128 booked teenage primigravidae was compared with 633 older primigravidae aged 20-34 years (control group; who booked for antenatal care between January and December 2003 in Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH, Jos was conducted. Result : The study showed teenage mothers to have significantly increased proportions of Hausa/Fulani ethnicity (p=0.0000, Muslim religion (p=0.0000, lower educational status (p=0.0000, lower income group (p< 0.05, low birth weight babies (p = 0.031 and more likely to deliver outside of JUTH after booking (p = 0.036 compared to the control. There were no significant differences in the proportions of marital status (p = 0.06, first trimester booking (p = 0.68, preterm labour (p = 0.55, obstetric complications (p>0.05, obstetric interventions (p = 0.78, birth asphyxia (p = 1.00 and crude perinatal death rate (p = 0.21 compared to the control. Conclusion : This study has demonstrated that teenage pregnancy even though it predisposes to complications of pregnancy and labour, but when teenagers receive good antenatal care, pregnancy and labour outcome is comparable to that of other age groups.

También se comprendería que dicho contexto haya dado lugar a una obra que, tan ortodoxa en su sententia como genialmente paradójica en su littera, no tergiversa sobre los fundamentos a la vez sociales y espirituales del “buen amor” como tampoco se muestra muy propicia a la realeza tal y como la encarnaba entonces Alfonso XI de Castilla.Plutôt que dans la vie amoureuse de l’Archiprêtre de Hita, dont nous ne savons rien, peut-être faudrait-il voir dans le grave conflit aux incidences dynastiques virtuellement dévastatrices qui opposa Marie de Portugal, femme légitime d’Alphonse XI, et Aliénor de Guzmán, sa concubine officielle, ou, si l’on veut, dans le « fol amour » du roi et dans le parti (celui de Marie que choisit –je le suggère– Juan Ruiz, la cause de l’emprisonnement de l’auteur du Libro de buen amor. L’on comprendrait aussi que ce contexte ait donné lieu à une œuvre qui, aussi orthodoxe dans sa sententia que génialement paradoxale dans sa littera, ne tergiverse nullement sur les fondements sociaux et spirituels du « bon amour » mais ne se montre pas non plus favorable à une royauté telle que l’incarne alors Alphonse XI de Castille.

Un San Juan Bautista firmado por Juan Simón Gutiérrez  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available El conocimiento de la pintura sevillana de la segunda mitad del siglo XVII supone uno de los grandes retos de nuestra historiografía artística. Efectivamente, el amplio abanico de discípulos e imitadores del arte de Murillo necesita una profunda revisión metodológica que sepa clarificar la nada fácil tarea de aislar las distintas personalidades que constituyen este importante grupo de artistas. En este sentido la personalidad de Juan Simón Gutiérrez (h. 1634-1724 continua siendo bastante confusa si bien con algunos interrogantes se le van atribuyendo ciertas obras que puedan responder al todavía escaso conocimiento de su estilo frente al amplio grupo de pintores pertenecientes a la escuela de Murillo.

Marketing San Juan Basin gas  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Marketing natural gas produced in the San Juan Basin of New Mexico and Colorado principally involves four gas pipeline companies with significant facilities in the basin. The system capacity, transportation rates, regulatory status, and market access of each of these companies is evaluated. Because of excess gas supplies available to these pipeline companies, producers can expect improved take levels and prices by selling gas directly to end users and utilities as opposed to selling gas to the pipelines for system supply. The complexities of transporting gas today suggest that the services of an independent gas marketing company may be beneficial to smaller producers with gas supplies in the San Juan Basin

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La communauté de San Juan est reconnue depuis 1939. Une première partie concerne l?organisation de la reducción de San Juan vers le milieu du XVIe siècle. Le poids fiscal s?exerce durement sur le village et la crise est générale dans toute la vallée du Chancay au XVIIe. siècle. La christianisation des habitants est définitive au milieu de ce même siècle. C?est vers la fin du XVIIe siècle et durant tout le XVIIIe que se multiplient les conflits entre San Juan et les villages voisins liés aux terrains de pâture et à la possession de l?eau. La deuxième partie du travail concerne les rapports de la communauté de San Juan avec le Pérou contemporain : contrainte fiscale toujours très lourde durant la fin de l?époque coloniale, exactions des militaires juste avant l?indépendance. La période républicaine voit toujours les conflits avec les villages voisins mais aussi la naissance de familles qui cherchent à retirer le maximum de la communauté. Les terres sont divisées et attribuées : la détérioration de l?organisation communale traditionnelle est manifeste. L4es conflits se multiplient entre petits propriétaires, mais aussi avec les haciendas voisines : c?est l?apparition d?une véritable lutte de classes. La situation actuelle est incertaine, le poids de l?économie marchande se développe avec l?exode des jeunes. Que sera la communauté San Juan à la fin de ce siècle? La comunidad de San Juan está reconocida desde 1939. La primera parte concierne a la organización de la 'reducción' de San Juan hacia mediados del siglo XVI. El peso fiscal se ejerce duramente sobre el pueblo y en el siglo XVII la crisis es general en todo el valle de Chancay. Hacia mediados del mismo siglo la cristianización de los habitantes es definitiva. Es hacia fines del siglo XVII y durante todo el siglo XVIII que se multiplican los conflictos entre San Juan y los pueblos vecinos, los que están relacionados con los terrenos de pastoreo y la posesión del agua. La segunda parte del trabajo concierne a las relaciones de la comunidad de San Juan con el Perú contemporáneo: obligaciones fiscales cada vez más pesadas hacia fines de la época colonial, exacciones de los militares justamente antes de la independencia. El período republicano ve siempre los conflictos entre los pueblos vecinos pero igualmente el nacimiento de familias que procuran sacar el máximo de la comunidad. Las tierras son divididas y atribuidas: el deterioro de la organización comunal tradicional se pone de manifiesto. Se multiplican los conflictos entre pequeños propietarios, pero también con las haciendas vecinas: es la aparición de una verdadera lucha de clases. La situación actual es incierta, el peso de la economía comercial se desarrolla con el éxodo de los jóvenes. ¿Que será de la comunidad de San Juan a fines de este siglo? San Juan community has been recognized since 1939. In the first part, we will show' the organization of San Juan's reducción at the middle of the XVI century. The fiscal burden on the village was hard and this crisis was general all over the valley of Chancay during the XVII century. Christianisation of the inhabitants was completed in the middle of this same century. It is only at the end of this century and along all the XVII that the conflicts between San Juan and the neighboring villages were multiplied, tied to pasture lands and water possession In the second part, we will show the relations of San Juan with the contemporary Peru: always very hard fiscal constraint at the end of the colonial time and military exactions till the independence. Along the republican period, the conflicts with the neighboring villages persisted but there were also arising families who were trying to take the maximum of the community.

Epidemiology of Accident Deaths in Jos, Nigeria (1996-2000  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Accidents are common events in our society and have contributed significantly to causes of morbidity and mortality in most hospitals. In our environment accidents are fast becoming the commonest cause of death. Only few cases of these accidents are reported to the corona for investigation. Methods: Records of deaths from January 1996- December 2000 reported to the corona for autopsies from two major Hospitals in Jos city were analyzed. Those related to accidents were retrieved and studied. Information from the Police regarding causes of accidents was also extracted. Data on the deceased such as age, sex, and nature of injury were also collated. Police reports on the contributing factors to accidents were also analysed. Results: A total of 270 cases of deaths were reported to the corona for autopsies out of which 122 (45% were accident deaths. One hundred and three (86% cases were males while 19 cases were females. Two-thirds of deaths (60% were in the productive age group of 21— 40 years. Multiple fractures long bones without head injury accounted for 37.7% of deaths, followed by head/upper spinal injuries 24.6%, crushed body injuries 22%, while, intra-abdominal organ injuries which accounted for 15.6%. Analysis of types of accidents showed that vehicle, motorcycle, airplane crash and pedestrian accidents accounted for 59.8%, 20.5%, 10.7% and 9.0% respectively. Information from the Police on motor vehicle accidents, records showed that 50% of the accidental events were due to dangerous driving under the influence of alcohol. Conclusion: Accident death in our environment appears to affect mostly men in the productive and reproductive age groups. However measures that regulate vehicle speed on the road and alcohol intake by drivers may reduce more than half of such deaths.

Juan de Mairena en Srebrenica  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Not available.Dos hilos impulsan estas líneas: la reflexión sobre uno de los acontecimientos cruciales de este fin de siglo en Europa, la masacre de Srebrenica, y la necesidad de contribuir a la tarea colectiva de reconstruir una tradición filosófica en lengua castellana más allá de las clásicas distinciones de géneros. Ambos propósitos confluirían, metonímica y metafóricamente, en un nombre, Machado, y una obra, el Juan de Mairena. Los textos del apócrifo del poeta, tan próximo en algunos momentos al pensamiento de Lévinas o Heidegger, pueden contribuir a articular un examen crítico, insertado en una tradición, sobre ese símbolo de nuestra época.

Wind speed distribution and performance of some selected wind turbines in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The wind speed data of Jos have been shown to be either gamma or normally distributed. The wind is available and could be used for both residential and large scale power generation. At respective hub heights of 15m and 100m, at least 23% and 40% of Iskra AT5-1 and Micon NM 82 wind turbines installed capacities can averagely be generated respectively. A Micon NM 82 installed at a height of 100m in Jos can service about 210 homes each consuming at most 3kW of electrical power. The site is therefore good and the performance of the best two wind turbines attractive for investors.

Multidrug Resistant Pasteurella multocida Strains Isolated from Chickens with Cases of Fowl Cholera in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Antibiotic resistance is often encountered despite multiple antibiotics being used for the treatment of fowl cholera in Jos. This study was conducted to determine the antibiotic resistant profile of Pasteurella multocida isolated from chickens in Jos. A total of 2000 samples consisting of bone marrow, heart, liver, lung and spleen (400 each were collected from 400 clinically sick chickens between November, 2010 and October, 2011 for the isolation of P. multocida. Swab from each sample was cultured on 7% defibrinated sheep blood, MacConkey and casein sucrose yeast agar. Presumptive colonies of P. multocida were subjected to biochemical characterization. Isolates identified by biochemical tests were further subjected to Microbact GNB 24E test. Disk diffusion method was employed to test the sensitivity of all the twelve P. multocida isolates confirmed by biochemical and Microbact GNB 24E test. The twelve pure isolates of P. multocida were tested for their sensitivity against fifteen different antibiotics. Drug sensitivity test conducted on P. multocida isolates showed that some of the isolates were resistant to penicillin 11 (73%, microlides 9 (60%, sulfanomides 8 (53.3%, cephalosporins 3 (20% and other new groups of antibiotics 4 (27%. High resistance of P. multocida was recorded for ampicillin (91.7% followed by amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (83.3%, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (66.7%, erythromycin and anicillin (58.3% each, while tylosin was (33.3%. This study revealed that there is an emergence of multidrug resistance in some P. multocida strains among chickens in Jos, Nigeria. It is therefore recommended that antibiotic sensitivity test should be incorporated on a routine bases as part of measure to control fowl cholera and minimize the emergence of P. multocida resistance.

Serological Survey Of Salmonella gallinarum Antibody In Chickens Around Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A serological survey of the prevalence of antibodies to Salmonella gallinarum among chickens under two different management systems around Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria was carried out using the standard plate agglutination test. The objective of this study was to determine serologically the prevalence of antibodies against Salmonella gallinarum among apparently healthy chickens around Jos. A total of 700 serum samples made up of 450 exotic and 250 local breed of chickens were used for this study with 37.9% seropositvity. In the free range system (19.3% of the flocks sampled were seropositive for Salmonella gallinarium antibodies while in the semi intensive, 18.6% of the flock tested positive. The serum agglutination test (SAT was adapted to the microtitre format used to determine somatic and flagella titres. The antigen used for this study was specific for S. gallinarum, hence differentiation between species infection was assessed in this study. Perhaps the most feasible way to eradicate the disease is to encourage farmers (both small and large scale to break the disease cycle at their levels by embarking on prompt and regular vaccination programmes. It is thus concluded that Salmonella gallinarum (fowl typhoid is present in the area investigated. Fowl typhoid may continue to have a negative effect on the economy of poultry production in Nigeria if not controlled. A statistical analysis was precluded due to inadequate data sets.

Yeasts and yeast-like fungal contaminants of water used for domestic purposes in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Water used for domestic purposes is ideally required to be free from contaminants. Various contaminants have frequently affected the quality of such water. Water samples were obtained from 150 sources including 72 wells, 60 streams, 17 taps, and one borehole, randomly selected from five residential areas in Jos, Nigeria. Structured questionnaires and one-to- one interview was used to obtain information on features of location and use of facilities in each area. Eighty (53.3% water sources were contaminated, predominantly wells (70.8%. The locations (identified in code with the highest number of contaminated sources were AGO (60.0%, GBU (56.7% and FGD (56.7%. AGD and FGD also had the highest ratio of households to one water source (25:1. Eighty- two fungi were isolated, predominantly Candida tropicalis (23.2%, Candida lipolytica (10.9% and Rhodotorula sp (9.7%. Candida lipolytica was the highest (42.9% contaminant in tap water. Rhodotorula sp was found in all types of water sources sampled. Type of water source had a significant effect (P<0.05 on the presence of some fungi in the water. The residential area (Location had a significant effect on contamination of water sources by some yeasts. Water sources for domestic use in Jos are contaminated by yeasts and yeast-like fungi. Frequency of use, exposure of the facility to dirt, and contaminations of surroundings contribute to the occurrence of fungi in water sources and, by implication, the prevalence of fungal infections.

Contraceptive intentions of women seeking induced abortion in the city of Jos, Nigeria.  

Science.gov (United States)

This is a prospective study involving 120 women who requested abortion for an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. We sought to determine their contraceptive intentions and use. The characteristics of these women revealed that the majority were young, single schoolgirls with 68.5% of them being nulliparous. Over 90% had had their first sexual experience before the age of 20 years. Although, 113 (94%) were aware of the availability of contraceptive services only 70 (62%) of these had ever used a method and the majority of the contraceptive methods selected were ineffective. Although 97 (80.8%) had a positive intention towards post-abortion family planning, only 18 (18.5%) eventually agreed and were offered a method after the termination of pregnancy. The study revealed a high risk group of unplanned and unwanted pregnancy in Jos but low contraceptive use despite the high positive intentions expressed by this cohort of patients. Effective post-abortion contraception counselling should be incorporated into family planning in Nigeria in order that clients who express positive intentions to the use of family planning actually use the method thereby reducing the incidence of repeated induced abortions and its social and medical consequences.

Isolation of Aeromonas hydrophila from Commercial Chickens in Jos Metropolis, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Aeromonas species are increasingly incriminated in clinical cases in livestock and humans in Nigeria and the world at large. This investigative study was carried out between November, 2010 and October, 2011 in Jos, Nigeria to determine the isolation rate of Aeromonas species in clinically sick and apparently healthy commercial chickens. A total of 2000 postmortem samples consisting of bone marrow, heart, liver, lung and spleen (400 each were aseptically collected from 400 clinically sick chickens suspected to be suffering from various clinical conditions and cultured for Aeromonas organisms. Four hundred oro-pharyngeal swabs were also collected from 400 apparently healthy chickens for bacteriological analysis. Swab from each sample was cultured on 7% defibrinated sheep blood and MacConkey. From the bacteriological cultures of the bone marrow, heart and liver of the sick chickens, a total 11 (0.5% Aeromonas hydrophila isolates were identified by biochemical characterization and Macrobact™ test. Aeromonas organism was not isolated at all from the apparently healthy chickens. The co-occurrence of Aeromonas hydrophila with other pathogens in the sick chickens could have contributed to the observed exacerbation of clinical signs and mortalities in some of the investigated flocks during the study period.

Model Simulations of Waves in Hurricane Juan  

Science.gov (United States)

Hurricane Juan made landfall at 0300 UTC near Halifax Nova Scotia. This was a category 2 hurricane with winds of 44 m/s, the largest storm to pass over these coastal areas in several decades. Associated high ocean waves were experienced in coastal waters, from Peggy's Cove to Sheet Harbour, growing to epic proportions on the Scotian Shelf, and exceeding the 100-year return wave based on the present climatology. As part of the GoMOOS program (Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System, www.gomoos.org), winds from the USA Navy COAMPS (Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Model Prediction System) were used to evaluate and compare three widely-used third generation numerical wave models, SWAN, WAM and WaveWatch-III (hereafter WW3) for accuracy, with in situ measurements. Model comparisons consist of a set of composite model systems, respectively nesting WAM, WW3 and SWAN in WAM and WW3. We report results from the intermediate-resolution grid for Hurricane Juan. Wave measurements were made using four operational deep-water buoys (C44258, C44142, C44137, 44005), by a conventional directional wave rider (DWR) moored offshore from Lunenburg Bay, and also by two acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) located (1) near an oil rig on Sable Island Bank, in relatively shallow water, and (2) near the outer boundary of Lunenburg Bay. We discuss the reliability of DWR wave data compared to ADCP wave data. We show that all models provide reliable hindcasts for significant wave height (Hs) and for peak period (Tp) for Juan, although a clear under-estimation of Hs at the peak of the storm is evident, compared to observations. A feature in the COAMPS storm simulation is that the storm track appears to be slightly to the east of that of Quikscat scatterometer data. Comparisons between models and 2-dimensional wave spectra are presented. Preliminary results suggest that the recently released upgrade to the WW3 model shows slightly enhanced skill compared to the other models.

Sostenemos que las ideas de Linz sobre la rigidez del mandato y la legitimidad dual como dos de las debilidades del sistema presidencial, y la metodología utilizada en este texto surgen de una conjunción de elementos anclados en corrientes clásicas del pensamiento politológico y constitucional tales como la conceptualización weberiana de las instituciones y las ideas del constitucionalismo anglosajón, complementadas por elementos revisionistas del nuevo institucionalismo histórico. Es en la síntesis de estas corrientes donde reside realmente la novedad del pensamiento de Linz.

Methods: A prospective 1-year descriptive study was conducted from July 2010 to June 2011, at the adult HIV clinic of Jos University Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. DTPs and the associated pharmacist-initiated interventions were documented. Chi-square and Wilcoxon signed ranks test was used as appropriate, to compare the main outcome measures of pre- and post-intervention levels of viral load and CD+ cell count. Results: A total of 64,839 prescriptions were dispensed to 9320 patients. Interventions were documented for 85 unique patients (incidence of 1.31 interventions/1000 prescriptions), of which 62 (73%) and 3 (3.5%) were on first- and second-line ART, respectively, while 20 (23.5%) were yet to commence ART. Reasons for pharmacist intervention included failure to initiate therapy for HIV or hepatitis B infection; therapeutic failure (25.9%); and drug toxicity (24.7%). After intervention, the percentage of patients with HIV ribonucleic acid level CD4+ cell count increased from 200 (123–351) to 361 (221–470) cells/mm3 (P HIV virological and immunological outcomes. This highlights an important role for the pharmacist in the treatment and care of HIV-infected patients, in a multidisciplinary team.

A Survey of Early Chick Mortality on Small-Scale Poultry Farms in Jos, Central Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A questionnaire-based survey was conducted to investigate early chick mortality and its causes during the first two weeks on small-scale poultry farms in Jos, central Nigeria. The survey covered layer and broiler farms procuring day-old chicks from three selected hatcheries. Flock sizes varied from 20 birds up to 2000. Average mortality was 10.4 per flock with a standard deviation of 14.4. As a percentage of flock size, mortality was 11.4% with a standard deviation of 18.8%. The major causes of mortality were stress, Pullorum disease and diarrhoea. There was no significant relationship (p = 0.01, R2 = 0.02 between flock size and mortality. There was also no significant relationship (p = 0.01, R2 = 0.04 between mortality and the breed of stock. Of farms experiencing mortalities, only 28.8% consulted a veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment. The other 71% self-diagnosed the problems and instituted treatment which included vitamin supplementation or antimicrobial therapy, with enrofloxacin and gentamycin being the most popular drugs. Medication without consultation with qualified veterinarians may result in the abuse and misuse of antibiotics with the attendant consequences of resistance and the occurrence of drug residues in poultry and poultry products. The wide-spread use of antibiotics in the study area is cause for concern from both a veterinary and public health point of view. Although factors responsible for early chick mortality are complex, information on chick mortality on small-scale farms can be used for the training of farmers on its control. A better understanding of the causes of mortality in the crucial first few weeks of the chick’s life may lead farmers to rely more on better management such as better hygiene and sanitation and less on antibiotics for problems encountered during the early brooding period.

An Assessment of Mining Activities Impact on Vegetation in Bukuru Jos Plateau State Nigeria Using Normalized Differential Vegetation Index (NDVI  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The study area has a pathetic and deplorable condition of landuse/ landcover. The vegetal cover in the area has to be removed from the activities of tin mining which consequently resulted into adverse environmental effect such as erosion. Different forms of human induced stress such as tin mining and heavy rainfall have severely degraded soils on the Jos Plateau. Such degradation problems are also caused by deforestation, inappropriate farming system, bush burning and over-grazing which are hostile to the environment. The impact of tin mining has greatly affected the natural ecology of the study area Bukuru. Micro and macro organisms and plants have been stripped off their natural habitat due to tin mining activities. This paper therefore, assesses the mining activities impact on the vegetation in Bukuru area of Jos plateau in Nigeria. Normalized Differential Vegetation Index (NDVI techniques was adopted to Maps effect of tin mining on the vegetation for the period between 1975 and 2007 using LandSat satellite data. The result of the differential vegetation index analysis reveals a decline in vegetated surfaces in 1986 ranging from 0.04 to 0.58 indicating 0.05 and continuous loss in vegetation over the study area in 2007 (vegetated surface decrease by 0.08 between 1986 and 2007. The decrease in vegetated surface is due to intensive mining and cultivation.

Gamma ray spectroscopy of soil samples from apple orchards in Lamingo dam and Vom area in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Five samples each were collected from the apple orchards in Lamingo dam and Vom area of Jos East and Jos South local government areas respectively. The samples were allowed to decay for three weeks to ensure efficiency in acquiring the radionuclides. The samples were analyzed using Gamma Ray spectroscopy. Barium- 204 with gamma activity energy level 1765.50keV was used to check the presence of Uranium-235 in the samples. The results showed that samples Lams 2,3,4 and Voms 1,4,5 had high gamma activity energy levels of 2436.356keV, l837.24keV 2928.37 keV and 1656.32keV, 1635.48keV, 2351.87keV respectively as compared to (204B). While Lams 1,5 and Voms 2,3 had relatively lower gamma activity energy levels of 1325.23KeV, 1272.73keV and 1462.61KeV, 1183.24keV respectively. The samples with high gamma activity energy levels imply that radionuclide in the form of 235U is present in trace amounts in the sampled areas. This can affect the output of apples cultivated in such areas as the chemical composition or structure of plants will be altered.

Gamma activity and radiation dose in concrete building blocks used for construction of dwellings in Jos, Nigeria  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Radioactivity concentrations of concrete building block samples made and used in Jos (Nigeria)), were determined using a gamma ray spectrometry method. The mean values of the radioactivity concentrations were calculated as 66, 126 and 589 Bq kg-1 for 226Ra, 232Th and 40K, respectively. The radium equivalent activities ranged between 131 and 712 Bq kg-1, with six of the samples exceeding the UNSCEAR reported maximum permissible level of 370 Bq kg-1. The mean radium equivalent activity (292 Bq kg-1) is higher than the values available in the literature for some countries by factors ranging between 2 and 5, a situation that can be traced to the practice of sourcing sand aggregates from mining sites. The indoor annual effective dose for a dwelling of dimension 3.6 x 3.6 x 3.0 m3 was calculated as 0.81 mSv. (authors)

Umbrales: La escritura cinemática de Juan Emar / The Cinematic Writing of Juan Emar

Por otro lado, sus textos, en diferentes niveles enunciativos, son parte de la conceptualización de esta misma experiencia. En este sentido, lo cinemático es un imaginario multiforme de la percepción del movimiento que culmina en el cine de vanguardia de los años veinte; mientras que lo cinematográfico se relaciona con el fenómeno del cine propiamente tal, sus posibilidades tecnológicas y los elementos que lo convierten en espectáculo.

The green areas of San Juan, Puerto Rico  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Green areas, also known as green infrastructure or urban vegetation, are vital to urbanites for their critical roles in mitigating urban heat island effects and climate change and for their provision of multiple ecosystem services and aesthetics. Here, I provide a high spatial resolution snapshot of the green cover distribution of the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, by incorporating the use of morphological spatial pattern analysis (MSPA as a tool to describe the spatial pattern and connectivity of the city’s urban green areas. Analysis of a previously developed IKONOS 4-m spatial resolution classification of the city of San Juan from 2002 revealed a larger area of vegetation (green areas or green infrastructure than previously estimated by moderate spatial resolution imagery. The city as a whole had approximately 42% green cover and 55% impervious surfaces. Although the city appeared greener in its southern upland sector compared to the northern coastal section, where most built-up urban areas occurred (66% impervious surfaces, northern San Juan had 677 ha more green area cover dispersed across the city than the southern component. MSPA revealed that most forest cover occurred as edges and cores, and green areas were most commonly forest cores, with larger predominance in the southern sector of the municipality. In dense, built-up, urban land, most of the green areas occurred in private yards as islets. When compared to other cities across the United States, San Juan was most similar in green cover features to Boston, Massachusetts, and Miami, Florida. Per capita green space for San Juan (122.2 m²/inhabitant was also comparable to these two U.S. cities. This study explores the intra-urban vegetation variation in the city of San Juan, which is generally overlooked by moderate spatial resolution classifications in Puerto Rico. It serves as a starting point for green infrastructure mapping and landscape pattern analysis of the urban green spaces within the city of San Juan. The effectiveness of research and city planning will be further enhanced as a result of this type of finer-scale urban cover exploration.

Trabalho e bem-estar na polícia da Nigéria a partir dos anos 1980: foco nas divisões de polícia de Jos / Work and welfare in the Nigeria police since the 1980s: focus on Jos police divisions  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A polícia é uma metáfora para a crise sistêmica enfrentada pela Nigéria, especialmente desde o início da década de 1980. A crise foi anunciada pelo colapso econômico ocasionado pela má gestão e corrupção na indústria do petróleo. A intervenção do Fundo Monetário Internacional exigiu cortes em vários [...] setores, inclusive no de segurança. Ironicamente, este foi também o período em que a necessidade de intervenção do setor de segurança foi mais urgente. Aliado ao tipo de governança - com regras militares -, a polícia foi imensamente negligenciada como a principal força para a defesa da lei e o controle da crise. As condições de trabalho e de bem estar, determinantes fundamentais da produtividade, deterioraram-se junto com a expectativa crescente dos nigerianos em relação à polícia em meio à criminalidade crescente e ao colapso da ordem. Por meio de entrevistas, observações e anedotas, contadas principalmente pelos funcionários trabalhando em Jos, este artigo examina as condições de trabalho e de bem estar da polícia. Ele argumenta que a piora das condições de trabalho da polícia ocorre em função do declínio econômico, da corrupção e da preferência por um tipo de regime. Conclui-se apelando pela melhora das condições de trabalho e de bem estar como peças fundamentais para o bom desempenho da polícia. Abstract in english Police is a metaphor for the systemic crisis confronting Nigeria especially since the early 1980s.

Ironically, it was also the period when the need for the intervention of the security sector was most pressing. Allied with the governance type - military rule - the police as the first line of defense in law and order crisis suffered immense neglect. Work and welfare conditions, key determinants of productivity, deteriorated as the expectation of Nigerians of the police heightened amidst growing crime and breakdown of order. Using interviews, observations and anecdotes particularly in Jos from serving personnel, the paper examines work and welfare conditions of the police. It argues that the worsening working conditions of the police is a function of economic decline, corruption and regime type preference. It concludes by calling for improve working and welfare condition as cornerstone for police performance.

El laberinto religioso de Juan Manuel de Rosas  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Argentine traditional historiography consolidated the imagen of Juan Manuel de Rosas as the Restorer of the colonial Catholic tradition strongly weakened during the Rivadavian experience on the decade of 1820. This work discusses this assumption. Our central hypothesis is, on the contrary, that Rosas tried to carry out a religious policy inspired in distinct elements taken of different ideological traditions. This attempt conducts him to a dead-end.

La historiografía tradicional argentina consolidó la imagen de Juan Manuel de Rosas como el restaurador de la tradición católica colonial, muy debilitada durante la experiencia rivadaviana en la década de 1820. Este trabajo cuestiona tal posición. Nuestra hipótesis central es, por el contrario, que Rosas trató de implementar una política religiosa inspirada en elementos provenientes de distintas tradiciones ideológicas. Este intento lo condujo a un callejón sin salida.

Water supply and demand scenarios in the San Juan watershed  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Mexico is listed among the countries predicted to have freshwater shortages for the year 2020. The drought spell of the 1990’s has reduced fresh water availability in northern Mexico. Conflicts between users, and political entities have appeared in several watersheds. The río San Juan watershead is a classic example where water resources are of paramount importance for sustainable development. We aimed to predict future water supply and demand along the main of the río San Juan, from El Cuchillo reservoir to the confluence with the Rio Bravo. Monotonic increases in municipal water demand sector in the Monterrey Metropolitan Area and future water supplies predicted under normal and dry conditions were assumed in assessing future water allocation. The results indicate that water allotted for irrigation dramatically decrease under normal and dry conditions, shrinking the size of irrigated lands. We recommend implementation of sustainable management of water resources to buffer the potential contraction of irrigated lands and the disappearance of riparian ecosystems in the lower watershed f the río San Juan.

HISTORICAL ECOTOXICOLOGICALASSESSMENT OF SAN JUAN ECOSYSTEM, SANTIAGO DE CUBA, CUBA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Currently, the environmental decision-making related to watershed preservation is oriented under the precepts of an historical environmental assessment. The objective of this research was to conduct a historical ecotoxicological assessment of the San Juan de Santiago de Cuba ecosystem. This was considered a systematic environmental monitoring which ran from 2010 to 2013, made q?uarterly. Physicochemical parameters such as electrical conductivity, total alkalinity, total hardness, pH, total solids, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand were determined. All parameters of environmental risk prediction were performed using the GECOTOX program. The concentrations of Cu, Zn, Pb and Cd on three target organs (brain, gills and liver in the biomonitor adult Gambusia punctata (Poecilidae were analyzed. In this species, the effect of total protein and enzymatic activity of acetylcholinesterase as biomarkers were evaluated. In general, the parameters were outside the values set used by the Cuban quality standards. The GECOTOX program said that the waters of the San Juan ecosystem presented a high rate of risk. The highest concentrations of metals were determined in the gills, liver and brain, respectively. Biomarker values w? ere high, being higher for females. Finally, it was concluded that from one year to another all responses were ascending; thus, the San Juan ecosystem presented ecotoxicological effects in time.

Malaria and the Effect of Malaria Parasitaemia on Albumin Level Among HIV/AIDS-Patients in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available From September to November 2006, blood samples from 200 HIV/AIDS individual who are attending the Plateau State specialist Hospital, Jos were screened for malaria parasites, level of malaria parasitaemia and albumin level response to the infection. Twenty healthy volunteers albumin levels were measured and used as the normal range values. Of the 200 HIV/AIDS patients examined, 64 (32.0% had Plasmodium parasites, while 136 (68.0% who had no Plasmodium parasite were used as controls. The prevalence of malaria parasites in the age grouping revealed a significant difference, while a no significant difference was observed in the degree of parasitaemia among the age grouping. Of the 200 HIV/AIDS examined, 78 (39.0% of them are farmers and this group also has a high rate of Plasmodium parasitic infection 30 (15%. Only P. falciparum (30% and P. malariae (0.5% with a mixed infection of P. falciparum and P. malariae (1.5% were seen. There was a significant difference in the albumin level between the infected and the control. In conclusion, albumin level in the malaria-HIV/AIDS positive individuals is lower than in the HIV/AIDS positive. Albumin level can be used as a prognostic marker for disease severity and progression in HIV/AIDS.

Measurement of radionuclides concentration of some commonly consumed vegetables and the soil samples in Jos and Bukuru metropolis, Plateau state  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Studies of radiation level and radionuclide distribution in soil and vegetables of Bukuru and Jos metropolis in Plateau State, Nigeria, were undertaken to provide baseline data for the assessment of the impact of radionuclides which occur as a result of the tin mining activity that was set up in the region and to understand the behaviour of the radionuclides in the soil as well as the uptake of these radionuclides by the vegetables which are commonly consumed in the area. As part of this project the concentration of three important natural radionuclides namely: ''4''0K, ''2''3''2Th and ''2''3''8U have been measured in a number of geological samples and biological samples using the Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS). The measurement showed that ''4''0K activity concentration is mostly high in the leafy vegetables with an average value of (17.04±0.04) ppm possibly as a result of its double intake both from the root uptake and from the atmosphere. While the ''2''3''8U and ''2''3''2Th are minimal in the leafy vegetables with an average value of (2.06±0.01) ppm and (0.29±0.02) as well as in the root vegetables. Though these could be higher relative to their expected values in normal soil due to fertilizer applications and washed tailings into the streams where the vegetables are mostly farmed

Prevalence and risk factors of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex infection in slaughtered cattle at Jos South Abattoir, Plateau State, Nigeria  

Science.gov (United States)

Introduction Bovine tuberculosis (BTB) is widespread yet poorly controlled in Nigeria hence posing a public health threat. This study determined the prevalence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and factors associated with MTC among slaughtered cattle at Jos South Abattoir in Plateau State, Nigeria. Methods We conducted a cross sectional study in which we collected 168 lung samples systematically from 485 slaughtered cattle from May-June, 2012, and tested for acid fact bacilli (AFB) using Ziehl-Neelsen test and a duplex polymerase chain reaction technique (PCR) for MTC detection. Data on cattle socio-demographic characteristics and risk factors for zoonotic BTB infection was obtained and analyzed using Epi info version 3.5.3 to determine frequency, proportions, and prevalence odds ratios. Multiple logistic regression was done at 95% Confidence Interval (CI). Results The mean age of the cattle was 5.6 ± 1.3 years and (108) 64.3% were females. Majority were indigenous White Fulani breed of cattle (58.5%) and about half (54.8%) were slightly emaciated. Prevalence of MTB complex was 21.4% by AFB test and 16.7% by duplex PCR. Of 33 (19.6%) lungs with lesions, 27 (81.8%) were positive for AFB; while of 135 (80.4%) lungs without lesions, 9 (6.7%) were positive for AFB. Lungs with lesions were 52 times more likely to test positive to AFB test compared to tissues without lesions (AOR=52.3; 95% CI: 16.4-191.8) Conclusion The presence of MTC in cattle signifies its potential risk to public health. Presence of lesions on lungs is a reliable indicator of MTC infection that meat inspectors should look out for. PMID:25328626

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Objective: This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of Escherichia coli in asymptomatic bacteriuria among the students of Federal School of Medical Laboratory Technology, Jos.Methods: Mid-stream urine samples from 213 students who consented were collected, cultured, isolates identified and antibiotic susceptibility test was carried out according to standard microbiological protocols.Results: Of the 213 test samples screened, 9(4.2% had asymptomatic bacteriuria. The study indicates that 9(4.2% of the samples showed a significant count growth, 4(1.9% had a non significant growth, while 199(93.4% showed no growth. Of the 114 samples screened from female students, 9(7.9% had significant bacteriuria, while of the 99 samples screened from the male counterparts non 0(0.0% had significant bacteriuria. The bacterial isolates recovered in this study were Escherichia coli which had the highest with 6(66.7% while Klebsiella species had the lowest with 3(33.3%.The distribution of microbial isolates recovered from the study shows that Escherichia coli had the highest prevalence of 6(60.0%, followed by Klebsiella species with 3(30.0%, while Candida species had 1(10.0%.The antibiotic susceptibility pattern for the Escherichia coli isolates reveals that all the 6(100% isolates were susceptible to Nalidixic acid, Nitrofurantoin and Gentamycin, while Colistin Phosphate, Tetracycline and Streptomycin had 5(83.3%, 4(66.7% and 1(16.7% respectively. Ampicillin and Cotrimoxazole were resistant to all the Escherichia coli isolates.Conclusion: Asymptomatic bacteriuria was recorded among the females, therefore this call for the need to create more awareness on prevention and control measures for UTIs among females. The antibiogram profile suggested possibilities of drug abuse.

Seismic techniques in uranium exploration - San Juan Basin, New Mexico  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The 5.5 mile-long segment of a seismic line illustrated in the report is part of a seismic survey near Crownpoint, New Mexico. It may be used as a reference line for future uranium-related seismic studies, as it crosses two uranium orebodies and is in an area that has been extensively drilled and studied. It also demonstrates the seismic character of the uranium-bearing Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation in the southern San Juan Basin. Seismic techniques may be used to locate the drilling targets and thus provide a more efficient means for uranium exploration. Geology, seismic interpretation and acquisition are discussed. 14 references, 7 figures

Full Text Available SciELO Chile | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Este artículo debate acerca de la tradicional hacienda latinoamericana. La más conocida es la hacienda agropecuaria, signada por los grandes latifundios y sus terratenientes. Ese modelo convivió con la hacienda vitivinícola. Este tiene varios elementos en común con aquella, pues ambas compartían las [...] prácticas autoritarias y la ideología conservadora de sus propietarios. Pero, paralelamente, había interesantes diferencias entre ambas. Por un lado, la hacienda vitivinícola estaba conectada con la pequeña propiedad y la agricultura intensiva orientada a la industria; por otra parte, la hacienda vitivinícola se revelaba más dinámica en términos sociales y económicos. El caso estudiado se encuentra en la provincia de Cuyo del Reino de Chile y se funda en documentos originales inéditos de archivos de Mendoza, San Juan, Buenos Aires y Santiago Abstract in english Present article discuses the traditional Latin American "hacienda".

Energy. Inspiration for the future. Essays in honour of Jos Bruggink's retirement from ECN  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

This 'liber amoricum' is published at the occasion of the retirement of Jos Bruggink, who worked for the unit Policy Studies of the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) from 1979 to July 2011. The central theme in this volume is: Is it useful at all to study the energy future? This book collects views on the future of a number of energy-related issues. Marc Londo and Wim Sinke give their views on biomass and solar energy. Piet Boonekamp reflects on studying the energy future for the Netherlands and concludes that despite all our efforts there has been limited progress towards a secure, affordable and clean energy supply. However, in any energy future, energy savings is a 'no-brainer'. Pieter Boot analyses the ambition and progress on a sustainable energy system in four Northwestern European countries, and how coordination between them could help transition. Dolf Gielen discusses the role of innovation in all of this, and Bob van der Zwaan and Hilke Rosler talk about whether we can foretell anything at all about that process. Are the billions of people without access to modern energy finally going to get connected and what policy does that take? Jan Cloin and Tineke Roholl reflect on this question, while Raouf Saidi and Rahul Barua wonder about the promise of improved cook stoves. Lastly, Heleen de Coninck asks what international developments mean for climate change, and what institutions matter? The titles of the essays are (1) Changing views in Dutch policy making and support by ECN; (2) Changes in Northwest European energy systems: different views, no coordination yet; (3) Energy technology and innovation policy: the value added of models; (4) Long-term energy scenarios: Why?; (5) The silent revolution: solar energy on its way to large-scale use; (6) The trouble with biofuels; (7) Markets for Clean Cookstoves: A Think Piece for Development Cooperation Positioning; (8) Climate mitigation and energy for all: is there a role for international collaboration?; (9) Energy and Development Policy: How to obtain universal access in 2060?.

EMRIDGE: The electromagnetic investigation of the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

From July to November 1988, a major electromagnetic (EM) experiment, known as EMRIDGE, took place over the southern end of the Juan de Fuca Ridge in the northeast Pacific. It was designed to complement the previous EMSLAB experiment which covered the entire Juan de Fuca Plate, from the spreading ridge to subduction zone. The principal objective of EMRIDGE was to use natural sources of EM induction to investigate the processes of ridge accretion. Magnetotelluric (MT) sounding and Geomagnetic Depth Sounding (GDS) are well suited to the study of the migration and accumulation of melt, hydrothermal circulation, and the thermal evolution of dry lithosphere. Eleven magnetometers and two electrometers were deployed on the seafloor for a period of three months. Simultaneous land-based data were made available from the Victoria Magnetic Observatory, B.C., Canada and from a magnetometer sited in Oregon, U.S.A. Changes in seafloor bathymetry have a major influence on seafloor EM observations as shown by the orientation of the real GDS induction arrows away from the ridge axis and towards the deep ocean. Three-dimensional (3D) modelling, using a thin-sheet algorithm, shows that the observed EM signature of the Juan de Fuca Ridge and Blanco Fracture Zone is primarily due to nonuniform EM induction within the ocean, associated with changes in ocean depth. Furthermore, if the influence of the bathymetry is removed from the observations, then no significant conductivity anomaly is required at the ridge axis. The lack of a major anomaly is significant in the light of evidence for almost continuous hydrothermal venting along the neo-volcanic zone of the southern Juan de Fuca Ridge: such magmatic activity may be expected to have a distinct electrical conductivity signature, from high temperatures, hydrothermal fluids and possible melt accumulation in the crust. Estimates of seafloor electrical conductivity are made by the MT method, using electric field records at a site 35 km east of the ridge axis, on lithosphere of age 1.2 Ma, and magnetic field records at other seafloor sites. On rotating the MT impedance tensor to the principal axis orientation, significant anisotropy between the major (TE) and minor (TM) apparent resistivities is evident. Phase angles also differ between the principal axis polarisations, and TM phase are greater than 90° at short periods. Thin-sheet modelling suggests that bathymetric changes accounts for some of the observed 3D induction, but two-dimensional (2D) electrical conductivity structure in the crust and upper mantle, aligned with the ridge axis, may also be present. A one-dimensional (1D) inversion of the MT data suggests that the top 50 km of Earth is electrically resistive, and that there is a rise in conductivity at approximately 300 km. A high conductivity layer at 100 km depth is also a feature of the 1D inversion, but its presence is less well constrained.

Reseña de "La máquina de escribir" de Juan Martini  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available En La máquina de escribir (1996 de Juan Martini se presenta un discurso fragmentado, que reproduce el tono y el ritmo de las conversaciones en el ámbito de un bar. La proliferación de voces inscribe en el texto parte de los discursos sociales del siglo XX y da cuenta de las tensiones sociales que se generan, especialmente a partir de las políticas neoliberales de los años noventa en Argentina. En este trabajo me propongo analizar, desde un enfoque sociocrítico, algunos de los modos en los que ingresa la dimensión social en la novela: la revisión del pasado, la circulación del poder y la visión crítica de la realidad social y económica de finales del siglo XX.

A new record for American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus in San Juan, Argentina Nuevo registro de rana toro americana (Lithobates catesbeianus en San Juan, Argentina  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available We report a new record of Lithobates catesbeianus (American bullfrog from Argentina. L. catesbeianus was first introduced to San Juan Province 11 years ago in Calingasta Department, where the habitat is pre-cordilleran. The new record is for Zonda Department, San Juan Province, in the Monte desert region. Here, L. catesbeianus uses artificial ponds for reproduction and tadpole development. These ponds receive water from an irrigation system that connects the whole agriculture land in the region. The tadpoles use the irrigation canals to move among ponds. We suggest that legislation should be established to prevent future invasions and to achieve sustainable management of the wild American bullfrog populations in San Juan. Prevention of future invasion and management of established populations of this species requires the cooperation of numerous stake holders.Se presenta un nuevo registro de Lithobates catesbeianus (rana toro americana en Argentina.

El nuevo registro es para el Departamento Zonda en la provincia de San Juan, en el desierto del Monte. En este sitio, L. catesbeianus usa estanques artificiales para la reproducción y desarrollo del renacuajo. Los estanques reciben agua de un sistema de riego que conecta todas las tierras de la agricultura en la región. Los renacuajos utilizan los canales de riego para moverse entre los estanques. Sugerimos que se establezcan leyes para prevenir invasiones futuras y para lograr un manejo integrado de las poblaciones silvestres de rana toro que se encuentran en San Juan. La prevención de futuras invasiones y el manejo de las poblaciones establecidas de esta especie requieren la cooperación de numerosas entidades tanto gubernamentales como privadas.

Analysis of causes for reject x-ray films as a quality assurance elements in diagnostic radiology in Jos university teaching hospital  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The film reject rate and quality assessments studies were carried out at the Jos University Teaching Hospital. The rejected films collected and counted with respect to type, size and reasons for rejection were carried out for two calendar years. The observed reject rates were found to be nearly independent of the type of X-ray examination, which 68% of waste film reflected the nature and skills employed. The mechanical influence of equipment (machine fault is 11%, film rejection due to poor processing (dark room fault) was found to be 8% and for film rejection due to wrong identification, fogged film, uncooperating patient (patient movement) are 5%, 5% and 3% respectively. The deterioration in the quality of films and film processing conditions, ineffective quality assurance programs and inadequate regular staff training form a possible explanation for observed waste films which could have been avoided.

Danger on mountain roads, Iglesia Department, San Juan, Argentina  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

This paper is related to Mining Projects at Valle del Cura - Iglesia Department-San Juan Province-Argentina Republic. Basis for an Integrated Management of a Sustainable Mining.It aims at locating and analyzing natural dangers which may interfere high mountain paths, such as climatic, anthropic and/or tectonic factors since they may stop a region development. A hillside, a mountainside,a talus or a slope may have, due to their extensive areas, either lithological or structural variations which might determine the presence of un stability phenomena.The cordillera n Iglesia sector major dangers are related to mass displacement movements as a result of the great quantity of unstable detritus situated in valleys slopes.Landsat images, aerial photographs, topographic and geological maps data allowed to detect several sectors that may generate mass displacement movements, Arroyo de Aguas Negras rising sector was selected because it is on the right of National Route No. 150 trace. It is not only a national, but also an international route that connects Argentina and Chile.(author)

Isotopic evidence for the different origins of the Tulum Valley groundwaters (San Juan, Argentina)  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Stable isotope and tritium analyses were used to improve knowledge of the origin of groundwater in the Tulum valley, San Juan province, Argentina. Groundwater is mainly recharged by the San Juan river, which originates in the high Cordillera of the Andes, and is consequently depleted in isotopic content. However, this study led to the conclusion that precipitation over the surrounding hills (altitudes between 1500 and 3000 m), which is isotopically more enriched than the San Juan river source, must be taken into account in evaluating the groundwater inventory in different areas of the valley. About 80 wells covering the whole area, especially the piedmont of the hills, were sampled and analysed to study the regional influence of the different inputs. The interpretation of the results obtained suggests that the San Juan river has recharged most of the groundwater stored in the valley. Tritium levels provide evidence for the present area of recharge, not only limited to the alluvial fan, but also through the river bed in places where particular structural patterns and permeable deposits permit infiltration. The influence of water from Sierra Chica de Zonda, on the eastern border of the valley, is not significant, at least under present conditions. An important contribution of water from Sierra de Pie de Palo is evidenced in the southeast, i.e. groundwater in this area shows isotopic values that are interpreted as a mixture of water from the San Juan river with samples from the Sierra de Pie de Palo springs.

Marques de l’affectivité dans le discours séducteur du Dom Juan de Molière  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Notre travail prend en discussion l’un des plus célèbres libertins de l’histoire littéraire, Don Juan, tel qu’il est repris dans la pièce de Molière. Plus précisément, nous nous proposons d’étudier le discours de séduction de Don Juan dans les différentes hypostases dans lesquelles il apparaît. Nous voulons mettre en parallèle le discours de Don Juan devant Done Elvire, et celui devant la paysanne Charlotte, pour mettre en évidence deux aspects: la composante affective, c’est-à-dire l’insertion du moi dans le discours, et la composante séductrice, notamment le rapport entre le moi-séducteur et l’objet de la séduction.

[Dietary prescriptions for the elites of the kingdom of Navarre in the 16th century: the cases of Juan Rena and Juan de Alarcón].  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this article is to present and analyse four dietary prescriptions from the 16th century prepared for Juan Rena, a cleric of Venetian origin, and his servant Juan de Alarcón, which are kept at the Archivo General de Navarra. These documents demonstrate the interest of the patients and physicians in dietetics, understood as a group of health and hygienic measures based on the Galenic res naturales and res non naturales. These four prescriptions are closely related to the ad personam or consilia health regimens, which represent a genre of medical literature whose significance in Renaissance Spain has received little attention. The cases studied reveal the high esteem in which the elites held the possession of therapeutic resources adapted to their individual needs, which were compiled and copied for personal use.

Estimation of annual effective dose due to natural radioactive elements in ingestion of foodstuffs in tin mining area of Jos-Plateau, Nigeria  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Soils and food crops from a former tin mining location in a high background radiation area on the Jos-Plateau, Nigeria were collected and analyzed by gamma spectrometry to measure their contents of 40K, 238U and 232Th. As well as collecting samples, in situ dose rates on farms were measured using a precalibrated survey meter. Activity concentrations determined in food crops were compared with the local food derivatives or diets to investigate the possible removal or addition of radionuclides during food preparation by cooking or other means. Potassium-40 was found to contribute the highest activity in all the food products. The activity concentration of 40K, 238U and 232Th in local prepared diets ranged between 60 and 494 Bq kg-1, between BDL and 48 Bq kg-1 and between BDL and 17 Bq kg-1, respectively. The internal effective dose to individuals from the consumption of the food types was estimated on the basis of the measured radionuclide contents in the food crops. It ranged between 0.2 ?Sv y-1 (beans) and 2164 ?Sv y-1 (yam) while the annual external gamma effective dose in the farms due to soil radioactivity ranged between 228 ?Sv and 4065 ?Sv

Variation in the mitochondrial control region in the Juan Fernández fur seal (Arctocephalus philippii).  

Science.gov (United States)

The Juan Fernandez fur seal (Arctocephalus philippii was allegedly extremely abundant, numbering as many as 4 million prior to sealing which continued from the late 17th to the late 19th century. By the end of the sealing era the species was thought to be extinct until they were rediscovered at Alejandro Selkirk Island in 1965. Historic records would suggest that the species underwent a substantial population bottleneck as a result of commercial sealing, and from population genetic theory we predicted that the genetic variability in the species would be low. We compared the mtDNA control region sequence from 28 Juan Fernandez fur seals from two islands in the Juan Fernandez Archipelago (Chile). Contrary to expectation, we found that variation in the Juan Fernandez fur seals is not greatly reduced in comparison to other pinniped taxa, especially given the apparent severity of the bottleneck they underwent. We also determined minor, but significantly different haplotype frequencies among the populations on the two islands (Alejandro Selkirk and Robinson Crusoe Islands), but no difference in their levels of variability. Such differences may have arisen stochastically via a recent founder event from Alejandro Selkirk to Robinson Crusoe Island or subsequent genetic drift. PMID:10994703

The results obtained indicate that some chemical parameter of the river water vary in the different seasons of the year. The salinity, dissolved oxygen and biochemical demand of oxygen were found to be low, no toxic substances were detected in significant amounts, and the water quality has not been affected by the mining activity.

Assessment of external and internal doses due to farming in high background radiation areas in old tin mining localities in Jos-plateau, Nigeria  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Farming on soils situated in high background radiation areas can result to enhanced radiation exposure scenarios and pathways to humans. To assess the likely levels of exposures, farm soil samples were collected from different farmlands in three old tin mining localities (Bitsichi, Bukuru and Ropp) in Jos Plateau Nigeria, known for high radiations. The soil samples were analyzed for the activity concentrations of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K, using gamma-ray spectroscopy. The outdoor annual effective dose rates were calculated using the activity concentrations of the radionuclides and were found to vary from 0.07 mSv to 2.02 mSv across the three localities. Considering dust generation from soil tillage and inadvertent ingestion of soil particles, the likely internal radiation hazards were estimated using conservative dust and soil loading factors. The total average annual effective dose rates due to 226Ra and 232Th that could result from dust inhalation and ingestion of soil particles were 16.9 ?Sv, 8.1 ?Sv and 8.8 ?Sv, respectively for Bitsichi, Bukuru and Ropp. Though these values are about 5% the outdoor exposures to the farmers in those farms and greater than 1 ?Sv y-1, from the point of view of radiation protection and risk, they are significant. It suffices to say, therefore, that the results of this study will create the possibility of the importance to evaluate the health risk among the farming population and risk among the farming population and workplace environments which often is not covered by regulations concerning health protection.

Swab and aspiration specimen collection methods and antibiogram in chronic suppurative otitis media at Jos University Teaching Hospital: Which is superior?  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background : Chronic suppurative otitis media is a very common otologic problem in our environment. Appropriate methods for obtaining sample specimens for specific bacteria isolation has generated a lot of controversy. The simplest method available in our environment is the traditional swab method which, however, has been condemned on the basis of introducing contaminants. The objectives of this study were to compare the bacterial yield and the antibiogram of two specimen collection methods: the traditional swab method and aspiration method. Method : This was a 3-month prospective study involving outpatients seen at both the emergency and outpatients? clinics of the Jos University Teaching Hospital in the period between May 2008 and July 2008. The biodata, duration of discharge and sites of samples were recorded in the study data form after obtaining consent from the patients or the parents of child. Results : Eighty patients were studied comprising 40 each for aspiration and swab technique. This consists of 30 males (37.5% and 50 females (62.5% with a male to female ratio of 1:1.7. There were 24 (30% children (14 males, 10 females. Six (4 males, 2 females and 74 (26 males, 48 females patients had bilateral and unilateral ear discharges, respectively. A total of 86 specimens were obtained in all, consisting of 42 left and 44 right ears. There were 68 bacteria isolates comprising Pseudomonas (30, Staphylococcus (18, Proteus (12, and (8 Klebsiella species. Two were incidental fungal isolates of (Candida species, (8 cultures grew contaminants and (10 specimens had no growth at all. Each of the swab and aspiration techniques had (44 specimens. Conclusions : Despite the controversy surrounding the sampling technique in literature, swab technique has been found to be as good as the aspiration technique in our study. The organisms isolated are the same as those obtained in other places. Contaminants found were few and occurred in equal amount in the same patients in the two methods.

Abstract in english The first in a series of highlights from public health classics in Spain features the Milanese-born physician Juan Bautista Juanini, who authored the book Discurso in 1679 on the chemical analysis of the air pollution in Madrid, which was translated into French in 1685. Juanini was a follower of the [...] yatrochemical system, although his work was not however confined to subserviently copying the doctrines of Thomas Willis and François de le Boe (Sylvius). He incorporated different new aspects, the most important of which having been John Mayow's theory of the «spiritus nitro-aeriens»', a formulation predating the discovery of oxygen, of which he was one of the staunchest defenders in Europe. Juanini contributed decisively to the scientific renewal of Spanish medicine. His Discurso was the first totally «modern» medical book published in our country, many aspects of the Novator (Innovator) Movement initiated eight years later having first been outlined therein.

Paleoenvironmental interpretation using fossil record: San Juan Raya Formation, Zapotitlán basin, Puebla, Mexico / Interpretación paleoambiental empleando el registro fósil: Formación San Juan Raya, cuenca de Zapotitlán, Puebla, México  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Mexico | Language: English Abstract in spanish La Formación San Juan Raya es mundialmente reconocida debido a su alta diversidad y abundancia fosilífera. En este estudio se reconocieron e interpretaron nueve biofacies y tres icnofacies tomando como base la influencia de diversos factores como los cambios relativos en el nivel del mar, la tasa de [...] sedimentación, la salinidad del agua y la consistencia del substrato. Entre estos factores, al parecer las variaciones en la salinidad del agua fueron muy importantes en el desarrollo y remplazo de las asociaciones de organismos. La mayor parte de los organismos que conformaron las distintas biofacies e icnofacies, habitaron en ambientes de zona de rompiente y de plataforma interna. El objetivo de este trabajo es el de proveer una reconstrucción de las diferentes comunidades bentónicas y de los ambientes de depósito de un sector de la Formación San Juan Raya durante el Cretácico Temprano. Los resultados indican que el modelo paleoambiental del área de estudio corresponde a un sistema clástico marino somero dominado por tormentas. Finalmente, a lo largo de los 765.5 m de la columna estratigráfica compuesta, se identificaron nueve ciclos transgresivos-regresivos, en los cuales las etapas de somerización se encuentran en los niveles de 200 y 500 m, mientras que las condiciones de mayor profundidad están ubicadas en los 300, 400 y 765.5 m respectivamente. Abstract in english The San Juan Raya Formation is world-wide recognized because of the high diversity and abundance of fossils. In this study nine biofacies, three ichnofacies and ten lithofacies were recognized and interpreted on the basis of the influence of several environmental factors such as water depth change, [...] sedimentation rate, water salinity and substrate consistency. Among these factors, salinity variations were apparently crucial for developing and replacement of the different biofacies. Most of biofacies and ichnofacies inhabited in subtidal, shoreface and inner shelf zones. The aim of this investigation is to provide a comprehensive reconstruction of the different faunal benthonic assemblages and paleoenvironments in a sector of the San Juan Raya Formation during Early Cretaceous time. The results indicate that the paleoenvironmental model for the study area corresponds to a shallow marine, open-coast, storm-dominated clastic system, characterized by several variations in subenvironments, from foreshore to offshore. Along a measured composite column of about 765.5 m in length, nine cycles of transgression-regression were identified, with the shallowest stage at the 200 and 500 m levels and the deepest conditions at 300, 400 and 765.5 m in the column.

Feria Exposición Agrícola y Pecuaria de San Juan de los Remedios (1857. Cuba - (Agricultural and Cattle Fair Exhibition of San Juan de los Remedios (1857. Cuba  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available ResumenEn una moción presentada en el cabildo de San Juan de los Remedios porD. Francisco Javier Balmaseda y Jullien dirigida al Capitán General de la Isla de Cuba en febrero de 1857, se solicitaba la autorización para celebrar una Feria Exposición Agrícola y Pecuaria en fecha que coincidiera con la del santo patrono de la villa, San Juan Bautista. La primera de estas ferias se celebró en ese año siguiéndole seis eventos más, excepto en el año 1861. En el presente artículo se dan a conocer los aspectos más importantes de su reglamento, que por sus características técnicas, lo consideramos muy avanzado para la época. Los premios así como lo premiado, representan un abanico del universo pecuario anteponiéndose a la necesidad de la utilización de las materias primas locales que sustituyeran a las importadas. Las medallas otorgadas a los premiados jugaron un papel fundamental en la historia local, pues en éstas aparecía el escudo originariode la villa, las que encontradas por el historiador José A. Martínez-Fortún y Foyo fundamentaron que hoy día sea el que pueda ostentar la ciudad. Inferimos que estas celebraciones jugaron un doble papel en la vida remediana: impulsaron el desarrollo ganadero y agrícola local y permitieron que Remedios fuera más conocido en el resto del país.SummaryIn a motion presented in the town council of San Juan de los Remedios by D. Francisco Javier Balmaseda y Jullien addressed to the General Captain of the Island of Cuba in February of 1857, the authorization was requested to celebrate an Agricultural and Cattle Fair Exhibition in a date to coincide with that of the patron saint of the village, Saint Juan Bautista. The first of these fairs took place in that year following six more events, except in the year 1861. In the present article are given to know the most important aspects of its regulation that for its technical characteristics, we considerate to be very advanced for that time. The prizes as well as that rewarded, represent the cattle universe, being prefixed to the necessity of the use of the local raw matters that substitute those cared. The medals granted to the winners played a fundamental role in the local history, because in these the shield native of the village appeared, those that were found by the historian José A. Martínez-Fortún y Foyo based that nowadays it is the one that can show the city. We infer that these celebrations played a double role in the villagelife: they impelled the local cattle and agricultural development, andallowed that Remedios was well known in the rest of the country.

Ästhetisches Bild und Christliche Mystik im Cántico espiritual des San Juans de la Cruz  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

  In diesem Zusammenhang werde ich, von dem Cántico espiritual des San Juans de la Cruz (1577) ausgehend und zentrale rezeptionsgeschichtliche Probleme einbeziehend, den mystischen Bildbegriff untersuchen. Auf der einen Seite bildet San Juans selbstständige Interpretation des biblischen Hoheliedes mit ihrem farbigen Bilderreichtum einen ausgezeichneten Ausgangspunkt für die Diskussion des komplizierten Verhältnisses zwischen dem Profanen und dem Heiligen, das sich in dem grundlegenden Schisma der San Juan-Rezeption spiegelt; auf der anderen Seite ist das Problem der Funktion des ästhetischen Bildes im Fall Cántico besonders aktuell, weil San Juan sich bewußt in eine lange christliche Tradition, Hohelied-Auslegung mit bildtheoretischer Diskussion zu verbinden, einschreibt. Eine Untersuchung der Anatomie und Funktion des ästhetischen Bildes in der mystichen Dichtung des San Juans de la Cruz macht somit den übergeordneten Rahmen meiner Interpretation und Diskussion des Cántico espiritual mit dazugehörigen Prosakommentaren aus. Weil der Cántico espiritual als mysticher Text behauptet, er beschreibt eine paranormale Erfahrung (die unio mystica als intenses Gotteserlebnis), ist es relevant, die literarische Repräsentation genauer zu untersuchen und u.a. einzuschätzen, ob man die mystische Liebesdichtung des San Juans notwendigerweise im Rahmen einer Symbolästhetik verstehen muß, so wie die Majorität der profanen Interpreten behauptet. Der mystiche Text treibt irgendwie die Frage der Repräsentation auf die Spitze, und fordert eine Reflexion der Bild- oder Repräsentationsproblematik, die meiner Meinung nach ganz zentral für das Verständnis des komplizierten Verhältnisses zwischen dem Profanen und dem Heiligen als thematischen Problems und der Emblem-artigen Dualität von Bild und Schrift als formalen Problems ist.

Disputa fronteriza y valor geoestratégico del río San Juan: Nicaragua y Costa Rica  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Nicaragua y Costa Rica en varias ocasiones han sostenido disputas fronterizas. Esto se debe a que gran parte de la línea divisoria entre los dos países la constituye el río San Juan, lo que ha provocado una serie de controversias relacionadas con el cauce del río y algunas zonas aledañas. En el 2010 el conflicto se reactiva debido a que Nicaragua construyó un canal en una isla perteneciente a Costa Rica. Cada país valora geoestratégicamente de manera distinta el río San Juan; para los nicaragüenses, es un símbolo de gran esperanza para su desarrollo, en tanto que para los costarricenses, es un punto de interés para preservar los humedales, áreas consideradas de fragilidad ambiental.

Impacts of Urbanization in the Coastal Tropical City of San Juan, Puerto Rico  

Science.gov (United States)

Urban sprawl in tropical locations is rapidly accelerating and it is more evident in islands where a large percentage of the population resides along the coasts. This paper focuses on the analysis of the impacts of land use and land cover for urbanization in the tropical coastal city of San Juan, in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. A mesoscale numerical model, the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS), is used to study the impacts of land use for urbanization in the environment including specific characteristics of the urban heat island in the San Juan Metropolitan Area (SJMA), one of the most noticeable urban cores of the Caribbean. The research also makes use of the observations obtained during the airborne San Juan Atlas Mission. Surface and raw insonde data from the mission are used to validate the atmospheric model yielding satisfactory results. Airborne high resolution remote sensing data are used to update the model's surface characteristics in order to obtain a more accurate and detailed configuration of the SJMA and perform a climate impact analysis based on land cover/land use (LCLU) changes. The impact analysis showed that the presence of the urban landscape of San Juan has an impact reflected in higher air temperatures over the area occupied by the city, with positive values of up to 2.5 degrees C, for the simulations that have specified urban LCLU indexes in the model's bottom boundary. One interesting result of the impact analysis was the finding of a precipitation disturbance shown as a difference in total accumulated rainfall between the present urban landscape and with a potential natural vegetation, apparently induced by the presence of the urban area. Results indicate that the urban-enhanced cloud formation and precipitation development occur mainly downwind of the city, including the accumulated precipitation. This spatial pattern can be explained by the presence of a larger urbanized area in the southwest sector of the city, and of the approaching northeasterly trade winds.

The paradigm of paraglacial megafans of the San Juan river basin, Central Andes, Argentina  

Science.gov (United States)

The spatial distribution and several morphometric characteristics of the Quaternary alluvial fans of the San Juan River, in the province of San Juan, at the Central and Western part of Argentina, have been studied to classify them as paraglacial megafans, as well to ratify its depositional environmental conditions. The high sedimentary load exported by San Juan river from the Central Andes to the foreland depressions is estimated about 3,682,200 hm3. The large alluvial fans of Ullum-Zonda and Tulum valleys were deposited into deep tectonic depressions, during the Upper Pleistocene deglaciation stages. The outcome of collecting remotely sensed data, map and DEM data, geophysical data and much fieldwork gave access to morphometric, morphographic and morphogenetic data of these alluvial fans. The main drainage network was mapped on processed images using QGis (vers.2.0.1). Several fan morphometric parameters were measured, such as the size, the shape, the thickness, the surface areas and the sedimentary volume of exported load. The analyzed fans were accumulated in deep tectonic depressions, where the alluvium fill reaches 700 to 1200 m thick. Such fans do not reach the large size that other world megafans have, and this is due to tectonic obstacles, although the sedimentary fill average volume surpasses 514,000 hm3. The author proposes to consider Ullum-Zonda and Tulum alluvial fans as paraglacial megafans. According to the stratigraphic relationships of the tropical South American Rivers, the author considers that the San Juan paraglacial megafans would have occurred in the period before 24 ka BP , possibly corresponding to Middle Pleniglacial (ca 65-24ka BP). They record colder and more humid conditions compared with the present arid and dry conditions.

Assessing Climate Variability Effects on Dengue Incidence in San Juan, Puerto Rico  

Science.gov (United States)

We test the hypothesis that climate and environmental conditions are becoming favorable for dengue transmission in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Sea Level Pressure (SLP), Mean Sea Level (MSL), Wind, Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Air Surface Temperature (AST), Rainfall, and confirmed dengue cases were analyzed. We evaluated the dengue incidence and environmental data with Principal Component Analysis, Pearson correlation coefficient, Mann-Kendall trend test and logistic regressions. Results indicated that dry days are increasing and wet days are decreasing. MSL is increasing, posing higher risk of dengue as the perimeter of the San Juan Bay estuary expands and shorelines move inland. Warming is evident with both SST and AST. Maximum and minimum air surface temperature extremes have increased. Between 1992 and 2011, dengue transmission increased by a factor of 3.4 (95% CI: 1.9–6.1) for each 1 °C increase in SST. For the period 2007–2011 alone, dengue incidence reached a factor of 5.2 (95% CI: 1.9–13.9) for each 1 °C increase in SST. Teenagers are consistently the age group that suffers the most infections in San Juan. Results help understand possible impacts of different climate change scenarios in planning for social adaptation and public health interventions. PMID:25216253

Ridge to Trench body-wave tomography of the Juan de Fuca plate system  

Science.gov (United States)

The Cascadia Initiative (CI) is in its third year of a four-year-long deployment of an array of ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) stations. The deployment covers the Juan de Fuca plate and the Gorda micro-plate from the western side of the mid-ocean ridge to the Cascadia trench. This project provides unprecedented coverage of an entire oceanic plate. Here we present P-wave and S-wave velocity anomaly models of the Gorda-Juan de Fuca region covered by the CI. The results show lithosphere thickening with distance from the ridge, providing constraints on the lithospheric cooling process. While the Gorda-Juan de Fuca system is small enough to be feasibly covered and imaged, the plate is not so small and so unique that the results presented here cannot be applied to other oceanic plate systems. These results, then, give insight into the life-cycle of oceanic plates, from their creation at a mid-ocean ridge to their subduction and subsequent recycling into the mantle.

Geologic Map of the Central San Juan Caldera Cluster, Southwestern Colorado  

Science.gov (United States)

The San Juan Mountains are the largest erosional remnant of a composite volcanic field that covered much of the southern Rocky Mountains in middle Tertiary time. The San Juan field consists mainly of intermediate-composition lavas and breccias, erupted about 35-30 Ma from scattered central volcanoes (Conejos Formation) and overlain by voluminous ash-flow sheets erupted from caldera sources. In the central San Juan Mountains, eruption of at least 8,800 km3 of dacitic-rhyolitic magma as nine major ash flow sheets (individually 150-5,000 km3) was accompanied by recurrent caldera subsidence between 28.3 Ma and about 26.5 Ma. Voluminous andesitic-dacitic lavas and breccias erupted from central volcanoes prior to the ash-flow eruptions, and similar lava eruptions continued within and adjacent to the calderas during the period of more silicic explosive volcanism. Exposed calderas vary in size from 10 to 75 km in maximum dimension; the largest calderas are associated with the most voluminous eruptions.

El mito de Don Juan en el cine: De Molière a Jacques Weber  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available From its birth in Spain in the 17th century, the myth of Don Juan has been explored through a diversity of genres, approached by numerous artists, from a wide range of perspectives and artistic expressions, interpreted by philosophers and studied by scientists. This article analyzes the modifications that the mythic scenario displays in Jacques Weber’s cinematographic version, taking into account the specific issues related to the shift of language, from literature to cinema, alongside other aspects of similar interest. Furthermore, given the fact that the study case is the result of a film transposition from a particular literary text, in this case Molière’s account of Don Juan, we will analyse, first and foremost, the suitability of the original literary text to the mythic discourse.

Desde su nacimiento en el siglo XVII español, el mito de Don Juan ha sido vertido en diferentes géneros, abordado por numerosos creadores, desde perspectivas y expresiones artísticas diversas, interpretado por filósofos y estudiado por científicos. Este artículo analiza las modificaciones que el escenario mítico presenta en la versión cinematográfica de Jacques Weber, teniendo en cuenta, además de otras causas de semejante interés, las relacionadas con el cambio de lenguaje: de la literatura al cine. Pero además, como el film estudiado es el resultado de la transposición fílmica de un texto literario particular, en este caso la versión donjuanesca de Molière, se analiza, en primer lugar, la adecuación al discurso mítico del texto literario de partida.

Juan de Fuca Plate Ridge-to-Trench Experiment: initial results from active source seismic imaging of the Juan de Fuca plate and Cascadia fore-arc (Invited)  

Science.gov (United States)

Active source seismic data were acquired during the Juan de Fuca Ridge-to-Trench experiment (June-July 2012) to characterize the evolution and structure of the Juan de Fuca plate from formation at the ridge, through evolution in the plate interior, to subduction at the Cascadia trench. The survey provides plate-scale images of the sediments, crust, and shallowest mantle along two ridge-perpendicular transects, one extending from Axial seamount to the Oregon margin near Hydrate Ridge and the other from near Endeavour segment to Grays Harbor offshore Washington. In addition, a 450 km long trench-parallel line ~10 km seaward of the Cascadia deformation front was acquired to characterize variations in plate structure along the margin. Coincident long-streamer (8 km) multi-channel seismic (MCS) and wide-angle ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) data were collected along each transect. Using these data, our current investigations focus on the properties of the thick sediment blanket covering the Juan de Fuca plate and evidence for fluid flow at the deformation front, crustal structure within the plate interior and near the deformation front, and tracking the downgoing plate beneath the margin. Highlights include the discovery of numerous pockmarks on the seafloor providing evidence of active fluid flow up to 60 km west of the deformation front. Along the Oregon transect, a bright decollement horizon is imaged at ~1sec twtt above basement whereas at the Washington margin, protothrusts of the deformation front reach to the top of the oceanic crust. Variations in sediment properties are documented within the margin-parallel transect with changes in the stratigraphic level of decollement. While crustal thickness is quite uniform along the margin (~ 6 km), variations in crustal reflectivity and in shallowest mantle velocities are observed over ~30-50 km length scales that could be related to structural variations in the Cascadia subduction zone. Further landward, the top of the downgoing plate is imaged intermittently beneath the Oregon margin to within ~30 km of the coast. Patches of shallower bright reflectivity possibly related to the seaward edge of the Siletzia terrane are also imaged. A piggyback 3D onshore/offshore tomography experiment indicates considerable along-strike structural variation along this segment of the subduction zone. West of the deformation front, crustal-scale faults transect the downgoing plate along the Oregon transect. Seismic layer 2A is well imaged for most of this transect but disappears within 15 km of the deformation front, possibly linked to enhanced alteration or deformation associated with plate bending. An overview of these results will be presented here with details provided in companion presentations of the co-authors at this meeting.

Por otra parte, la dasonomía urbana permite el estudio, manejo y mantenimiento de las especies arbóreas que se han establecido en áreas urb [...] anas; por ello, se realizó un diagnóstico general del Bosque de San Juan de Aragón, mediante un inventario completo de su arbolado, en el que se incluyeron variables cuantitativas y cualitativas. Se contabilizaron 88 especies, de las cuales siete representan 73.67% de los árboles; la etapa de desarrollo más común corresponde a árboles maduros (58.33%), seguida por la etapa juvenil (41.18%); en cuanto a la condición de vigor, 59.95% corresponde a los individuos vigorosos y 28.72% a declinaciones incipientes, mientras que el estado físico y sanitario del tronco y copa están dominados por las categorías bueno y regular. Se registraron 5 252 ejemplares que requieren, al menos, algún tipo de poda: las de restauración y limpieza son las más necesarias. El arbolado con riesgo asociado fue de 7.9% y solo 3.14% presentó algún tipo de fauna. En general, los bosques urbanos muestran baja diversidad de especies; sin embargo, la condición general del Bosque de San Juan de Aragón se admite como buena. Abstract in english Cities are considered the most artificial man-made ecosystems and have been shown to be the cause of serious environmental hazards. It is therefore crucial to preserve the urban green areas. On the other hand, urban forest science allows the study, management and maintenance of the tree species that [...] have been established in the cities. For this reason, a general diagnosis of the San Juan de Aragón Forest (Bosque San Juan de Aragón, BSJA) was carried out by means of a complete inventory of its trees, in which both quantitative and qualitative variables were included. 88 species were identified, of which seven account for 73.67% of the trees. The most common stage of development of the trees is maturity (58.33%), followed by youth (41.18%). As for their vigor, 59.95% are vigorous trees, while 28.72% show an incipient decline; the physical and sanitary condition of the stem and crown are dominated by the "good" and "fair" categories. 5 252 specimens were found to require at least some type of pruning; restorative and hygienic pruning are the most needed. The proportion of trees with an associated risk was 7.9%, and only 3.14% had some type of fauna. Overall, urban forests show a low diversity of species; however, their general condition is considered to be good.

Project "Conservation, Restoration, and Development of the Juan Fernández islands, Chile" / Proyecto conservación, restauración y desarrollo de las islas Juan Fernández, Chile  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Chile | Language: English Abstract in spanish Las islas Juan Fernández albergan una de las floras más interesantes del planeta desde el punto de vista científico. Aunque están protegidas como Parque Nacional y Reserva Mundial de la Biosfera, más de 400 años de intervención humana han dejado una profunda huella en sus comunidades de plantas nati [...] vas. Los repetidos incendios, sobreexplotación de especies y la introducción de plagas animales y vegetales, han colocado al 75 % de la flora vascular endémica bajo amenaza de extinción. En 1997, la Corporación Nacional Forestal de Chile (CONAF) dio inicio a un ambicioso proyecto, cuyo propósito es recuperar este ecosistema de alta complejidad a través de un enfoque socio-ecológico. Juan Fernández constituye un caso interesante, debido a que la población local (600 personas) prácticamente vive dentro del parque, por lo que no es posible excluir al humano de los programas de conservación. Segundo, el relativamente pequeño tamaño del archipiélago (100 km²) permite la observación de los efectos de cualquier modificación en el ecosistema en pequeñas escalas en el tiempo y el espacio. Tercero, la biota nativa e introducida se relaciona de tal manera que la modificación de la abundancia de una especie por acción humana puede provocar resultados inesperados en otras especies no consideradas blanco. El proyecto comprende principalmente programas que buscan controlar o erradicar algunas de las plagas animales y vegetales, adopta medidas activas para conservar y restaurar la flora, así como también inserta al humano en los planes de conservación. En este trabajo se da a conocer la problemática general del parque, la estrategia que se ha seguido para resolver estos problemas, así como también se informan los primeros resultados. Este proyecto ilustra la complejidad para realizar labores de conservación en una situación práctica, con variadas y complejas interrelaciones, y con vacíos en el conocimiento ecológico. Por lo tanto, puede servir como modelo para realizar programas similares en otros lugares Abstract in english From a scientific point of view, the Juan Fernández islands contain one of the most interesting floras of the planet. Although protected as a National Park and a World Biosphere Reserve, 400 years of human interference have left deep traces in the native plant communities. Repeated burning, overexpl [...] oitation of species, and the introduction of animal and plant plagues have taken 75 % of the endemic vascular flora to the verge of extinction. In 1997, Chile's national forest service (Corporación Nacional Forestal, CONAF) started an ambitious project, whose objective is the recovery of this highly complex ecosystem with a socio-ecological focus. Juan Fernández makes an interesting case, as the local people (600 persons) practically live within the park, therefore impeding the exclusion of the people from any conservation program. Secondly, the relatively small size of the archipelago (100 km²) permits the observation of the effects of whatever modification in the ecosystem on small scales in time and space. Thirdly, the native and introduced biota are interrelated in such a way that human-caused changes in one species population may provoke unexpected results amongst other, non-target species.

Project "Conservation, Restoration, and Development of the Juan Fernández islands, Chile" Proyecto conservación, restauración y desarrollo de las islas Juan Fernández, Chile  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available From a scientific point of view, the Juan Fernández islands contain one of the most interesting floras of the planet. Although protected as a National Park and a World Biosphere Reserve, 400 years of human interference have left deep traces in the native plant communities. Repeated burning, overexploitation of species, and the introduction of animal and plant plagues have taken 75 % of the endemic vascular flora to the verge of extinction. In 1997, Chile's national forest service (Corporación Nacional Forestal, CONAF started an ambitious project, whose objective is the recovery of this highly complex ecosystem with a socio-ecological focus. Juan Fernández makes an interesting case, as the local people (600 persons practically live within the park, therefore impeding the exclusion of the people from any conservation program. Secondly, the relatively small size of the archipelago (100 km² permits the observation of the effects of whatever modification in the ecosystem on small scales in time and space. Thirdly, the native and introduced biota are interrelated in such a way that human-caused changes in one species population may provoke unexpected results amongst other, non-target species. The project mainly deals with the eradication or control of some animal and plant plagues, the active conservation and restoration of the flora and the inclusion of the local people in conservation planning. This article presents the park's general problems, the strategy proposed to resolve them as well as some preliminary results. This project shows the complexity of the conservation activities in practice, with diverse and complex interrelations and gaps in ecological knowledge. In this respect, the project may well serve as a model for similar programs in other placesLas islas Juan Fernández albergan una de las floras más interesantes del planeta desde el punto de vista científico. Aunque están protegidas como Parque Nacional y Reserva Mundial de la Biosfera, más de 400 años de intervención humana han dejado una profunda huella en sus comunidades de plantas nativas. Los repetidos incendios, sobreexplotación de especies y la introducción de plagas animales y vegetales, han colocado al 75 % de la flora vascular endémica bajo amenaza de extinción. En 1997, la Corporación Nacional Forestal de Chile (CONAF dio inicio a un ambicioso proyecto, cuyo propósito es recuperar este ecosistema de alta complejidad a través de un enfoque socio-ecológico. Juan Fernández constituye un caso interesante, debido a que la población local (600 personas prácticamente vive dentro del parque, por lo que no es posible excluir al humano de los programas de conservación. Segundo, el relativamente pequeño tamaño del archipiélago (100 km² permite la observación de los efectos de cualquier modificación en el ecosistema en pequeñas escalas en el tiempo y el espacio. Tercero, la biota nativa e introducida se relaciona de tal manera que la modificación de la abundancia de una especie por acción humana puede provocar resultados inesperados en otras especies no consideradas blanco. El proyecto comprende principalmente programas que buscan controlar o erradicar algunas de las plagas animales y vegetales, adopta medidas activas para conservar y restaurar la flora, así como también inserta al humano en los planes de conservación. En este trabajo se da a conocer la problemática general del parque, la estrategia que se ha seguido para resolver estos problemas, así como también se informan los primeros resultados. Este proyecto ilustra la complejidad para realizar labores de conservación en una situación práctica, con variadas y complejas interrelaciones, y con vacíos en el conocimiento ecológico. Por lo tanto, puede servir como modelo para realizar programas similares en otros lugares

Diagnóstico y caracterización del arbolado del bosque de San Juan de Aragón / Diagnosis and characterization of the trees of the San Juan de Aragón forest  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Mexico | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Las ciudades son consideradas los ecosistemas más artificiales sostenidos por el hombre y se ha demostrado que en ellas se generan serios problemas ambientales. Por otra parte, la dasonomía urbana permite el estudio, manejo y mantenimiento de las especies arbóreas que se han establecido en áreas urb [...] anas; por ello, se realizó un diagnóstico general del Bosque de San Juan de Aragón, mediante un inventario completo de su arbolado, en el que se incluyeron variables cuantitativas y cualitativas. Se contabilizaron 88 especies, de las cuales siete representan 73.67% de los árboles; la etapa de desarrollo más común corresponde a árboles maduros (58.33%), seguida por la etapa juvenil (41.18%); en cuanto a la condición de vigor, 59.95% corresponde a los individuos vigorosos y 28.72% a declinaciones incipientes, mientras que el estado físico y sanitario del tronco y copa están dominados por las categorías bueno y regular. Se registraron 5 252 ejemplares que requieren, al menos, algún tipo de poda: las de restauración y limpieza son las más necesarias. El arbolado con riesgo asociado fue de 7.9% y solo 3.14% presentó algún tipo de fauna. En general, los bosques urbanos muestran baja diversidad de especies; sin embargo, la condición general del Bosque de San Juan de Aragón se admite como buena. Abstract in english Cities are considered the most artificial man-made ecosystems and have been shown to be the cause of serious environmental hazards. It is therefore crucial to preserve the urban green areas. On the other hand, urban forest science allows the study, management and maintenance of the tree species that [...] have been established in the cities. For this reason, a general diagnosis of the San Juan de Aragón Forest (Bosque San Juan de Aragón, BSJA) was carried out by means of a complete inventory of its trees, in which both quantitative and qualitative variables were included. 88 species were identified, of which seven account for 73.67% of the trees. The most common stage of development of the trees is maturity (58.33%), followed by youth (41.18%). As for their vigor, 59.95% are vigorous trees, while 28.72% show an incipient decline; the physical and sanitary condition of the stem and crown are dominated by the "good" and "fair" categories. 5 252 specimens were found to require at least some type of pruning; restorative and hygienic pruning are the most needed. The proportion of trees with an associated risk was 7.9%, and only 3.14% had some type of fauna. Overall, urban forests show a low diversity of species; however, their general condition is considered to be good.

Trihalometanes in San Juan city (Argentina) drinking water; Trihalometanos en agua para consumo humano de la ciudad de San Juan (Argentina)  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Twenty-four sampling points in the drinking water network of the City of San Juan, Argentina, were chosen in order to investigate the presence of four of the most representative trihalomethanes (THM). The collected data were statistically correlated for evaluating the seasonal variations of these substances, as well as the variations derived from their locations and distance from the drinking water treatment plant. Not any significative difference was observed Between each od the four seasons, neither between the various sampling points located at different distances from the treatment plant. The low concentrations of TOC dissolved in raw water limited the concentrations of THM whose means value did not go beyond the maximum values recommended by WHO. (Author) 22 refs.

Contaminants of antropic origin in groundwater San Juan (Argentina). Vulnerability and hydro chemical indicators; Contaminantes de origen antropico en aguas subterraneas San Juan (Argentina)  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The Tulum Valley aquifer vulnerability and its correlation with the behavior of hydro chemical parameters related to new urban neighborhoods and uncontrolled waste disposal are discussed. A high vulnerability to contamination by substances solved in the recharge water at the San Juan river shore is estimated. A fast transport rate due to the high permeability is foreseen, as well as the existence of contamination sources related to waste disposals and populations without a sewer system. The results show that the mentioned populations and waste disposal sites are located at vulnerable zones of the area. A higher concentration of nitrates and nitrites is observed at the Southeast, due to the short permanency period of the water in the system, and to the reconcentration in zones with less permeable levels.

Full Text Available Se describen e interpretan las estructuras desarrolladas en unidades ordovícicas, (Formaciones Yerba Loca y Los Sombreros y paleógenas-neógenas (Formaciones Vallecito y Rodeo aflorantes en la quebrada del río Jáchal entre el embalse Cuesta del Viento y Los Túneles. Las primeras forman las sierras Negra y de los Túneles, limitadas en sus bordes orientales por los sobrecorrimientos de la Tranca y los Blanquitos respectivamente y cubiertas en discordancia angular por la Formación Rodeo en los occidentales. El conjunto exhibe grandes pliegues asimétricos, de longitud de onda comparable con el ancho de las sierras, afectados por estructuras de escala hectométrica a métrica, más frecuentes en los limbos orientales, que son también los más tendidos. La orientación general de los ejes de los pliegues es variable desde Az 315 a Az 360, y la vergencia general de las estructuras pre-carboníferas y terciarias es hacia el este, lo que hace imposible el uso de su orientación para diferenciar su edad. La comparación de esta zona con los afloramientos de unidades coetáneas en las nacientes del río San Juan arroja semejanzas sedimentológicas y estructurales, pero también diferencias importantes. Entre las primeras se señalan las identidades litológicas y la presencia de unidades plegadas con ejes N-S sobre el sector oriental de los afloramientos y orientaciones al N-NO en el sector occidental. Entre las diferencias más importantes debe mencionarse la ausencia, en el área de Rodeo, de unidades silúricas equivalentes a la Formación Calingasta y de los conglomerados y ritmitas de la Formación El Planchón, aflorantes en el área del río San Juan.Structures cropping out in the Jachal Valley from the Cuesta del Viento dam to the locality of Los Tuneles are described and analyzed. These structures affect the Ordovician Yerba Loca and Los Sombreros Formations and the Paleogene-Neogene Vallecito and Rodeo Formations. The oldest units form the heights, Sierra Negra de Rodeo and Sierra de los Túneles, which are limited in their eastern flanks by the La Tranca and Los Blanquitos overthrusts, and by the angular unconformity underlying Rodeo Formation in their western ones. The regional folds show asymmetrical shapes and a wavelength comparable to the width of the Sierras, but minor structures ranging from meters to tens of meters are very common in their eastern limbs. Regional folds axis trend varies from Az 315 to Az 360 and the vergence of pre-carboniferous and andean structures point to the east, what makes very difficult to use orientation as a criterion to discriminate the differentiated deformational episodes. The comparison of sedimentological and structural features in the Rodeo area with those at the San Juan River evidences strong similarities but also important differences. Among the first ones, it can be mentioned the lithological and structural resemblance of the Ordovician units, which show NS trending axis in the eastern outcrops and point N-NW in the western ones. Main differences are the absence -in the Rodeo area- of the metapelites of the Silurian Calingasta Formation. and that of the conglomerates and rhythmites of the Devonian (?

Primeras dataciones del lago holoceno tardío de Zonda, San Juan First datings for the Late Holocene lake of Zonda, San Juan  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Se dan a conocer las primeras edades numéricas de los depósitos lacustres vinculados al río San Juan, que afloran en la depresión de Zonda y que corresponden al Holoceno tardío. Se determinaron cuatro unidades de depósitos cuaternarios correspondientes a: depósitos de bajada, fluviales antiguos, lacustres, y fluviales actuales aterrazados. De éstos, los depósitos lacustres fueron datados en los bordes occidental y oriental de la depresión de Zonda, que sobresalen entre los depósitos de las bajadas oriental de la sierra de Zonda, al oeste, y occidental de la sierra Marquesado, al este. De acuerdo a las dataciones radiocarbónicas (14C y relaciones estratigráficas, el episodio lacustre-palustre tuvo lugar en el Holoceno tardío (2.840 ± 80 AP, permaneciendo durante más de 1.000 años. Hacia el borde oriental del valle, la datación arroja una edad de (1.890 ± 80 AP. Este cuerpo de agua fría y dulce, se habría extendido en una superficie igual o superior a 750 km², ocupando gran parte del valle de Zonda y Ullum.We present numerical ages of lacustrine deposits associated with the San Juan River, which emerge in the depression of Zonda. Four different Quaternary units were identified from downstream bajada deposits, ancient fluvial deposits, lacustrine deposits and present fluvial terrace deposits. The lacustrine sediments were dated on both sides of the valley in the outcrops located in the distal portion of the eastern slope of the sierra de Zonda and the western slope of the Marquesado range. According to the dating and stratigraphic relationships, this lake-swamp episode would have occurred in the late Holocene (2,840 ± 80 BP, remaining around 1,000 years. Towards the eastern side of the valley, the dating yields an age of (1,890 ± 80 AP. The area of the cold and freshwater body would have been around 750 km² covering a great part of the Zonda and Ullum valley.

El retablo mayor del convento de Santa Isabel de los Reyes de Toledo: nuevas aportaciones a la obra de Andrés Sánchez, Juan Bautista Monegro, Juan Sanchez Dávila y Pedro de Cisneros el Mozo  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Documents studied here and the analysis of the work demonstrate that the main altarpiece of Santa Isabel de los Reyes is one of the most outstanding examples of Toledan 16th-century sculpture. Commissioned in 1570, it was completed by 1572, according to the inscription on the altarpiece, which until now has remained anonymous. The discovery of two payment orders demonstrate that it was created by the architect and sculptor Juan Bautista Monegro, the woodcarver Andrés Sánchez and the painter-gilders Juan Sánchez Dávila and Pedro de Cisneros el Mozo, to whose respective catalogues this work should be added, particularly that of Juan Bautista Monegro. From the formal and stylistic point of view, the reliefs and statues by Monegro can be related to the best classicism of the Leoni.

Las pruebas documentales aquí aportadas y el estudio de las formas artísticas, demuestran que el retablo mayor de Santa Isabel de los Reyes es una de las obras más sobresalientes de la escultura toledana del siglo XVI. Encargado antes de 1570, estaba concluido, como señala el epígrafe que preside el propio retablo, en el año 1572, siendo abadesa María de Guzmán. Ha permanecido como anónimo hasta la localización de dos órdenes de pago que lo documentan como obra del arquitecto y escultor Juan Bautista Monegro, del entallador Andrés Sánchez y de los pintores-doradores Juan Sánchez Dávila y Pedro de Cisneros el Mozo a cuyos respectivos catálogos debe incorporarse como obra destacada, especialmente en lo tocante al estudio de Juan Bautista Monegro, que fue el de mayor trascendencia de los cuatro. Desde el punto de vista formal y estilístico, sus relieves y esculturas se pueden relacionar con lo mejor del clasicismo de los Leoni.

The Crownpoint and Churchrock uranium deposits, San Juan Basin, New Mexico: An ISL mining perspective  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The Crownpoint and Churchrock uranium deposits, San Juan Basin, New Mexico are currently being developed by Uranium Resources, Inc. (URI) and its subsidiary Hydro Resources, Inc. (HRI) with an anticipated start-up in 1998. Both deposits will be developed using advanced in situ leach (ISL) mining techniques. URI/HRI currently has about 14,583 t U (37.834 million pounds U3O8) of estimated recoverable reserves at Crownpoint and Churchrock. at a cost less than $39/kg U ($15/lb U3O8). The uranium endowment of the San Juan Basin is the largest of any province in the USA. In March, 1997, a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Crownpoint and Churchrock sites was completed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission which recommends the issuance of an operating license. The FEIS is the culmination of a 9 year effort to license and develop the deposits. The Westwater Canyon Member of the Jurassic Morrison Formation is an arkosic, fine to coarse grained sandstone bounded by near basinwide confining clays deposited in a wet alluvial fan environment within the San Juan Basin. The primary, trend-ore deposits are hosted by the Westwater Canyon Member as humate-rich, syngenetic tabular deposits which were subsequently remobilized into roll fronts. Since deposition in the Jurassic, two phases of remobilization have occurred in the basin causing the formation of in situ leach amenable monometallic uranium rolls free of organic debris. Following in situ mining, ground water restoration of the Crownpoint and Churchrock mines is required to provide a water quality consistent with pre-mining baseline conditions. The development of in situ mining offers an environmentally sound and cost-effective method for uranium extraction. URI/HRI anticipates a production of 385-1,156 Tonnes U/year (1-3 million pounds U3O8) from the New Mexico properties. (author)

Towards Adjoint Tomography of 3D Structure of the Juan de Fuca Plate and Cascadia Trench  

Science.gov (United States)

Imaging a high-resolution seismic model of the Juan de Fuca Plate and Cascadia subduction zone in a historically seismogenic zone is essential to facilitate the assessment of tsunami and seismic hazards and better understand subducting processes of the Juan de Fuca plate. Over a four-year period (2011-2015), the ambitious Cascadia Initiative will repeatedly deploy 60 ocean-bottom seismometers to cover all of the Juan de Fuca plate and operate many land stations throughout the period. With the availability of seismic data from the first year deployment, we employ a two-step inversion procedure for a regional 3D model of crust and upper mantle. We first construct a reference 3D model based on array analysis of teleseismic data (Forsyth et al., 2013), and then will apply an adjoint tomography technique to improve the reference 3D model iteratively. Using techniques by Bell and Forsyth (2013), we remove the noise from the vertical component generated by tilting of the seismometer and by gravitational water waves and produce tomographic maps of the phase velocity of Rayleigh waves in the period range from 20 s to 125 s. We then invert the phase velocity data for a 3D reference model of SV velocity. We select approximately 16 local earthquakes with centroid-moment tensor (CMT) solutions during the first year operation of Cascadia Initiative and recalibrate the CMT solutions, hypocenters, and origin times of the events based upon the 3D reference model. In addition, we will determine CMT solutions for approximately 30 smaller events. We plan to use the updated CMT sources to run forward simulations for adjoint tomography using a spectral-element method (Komatitsch & Tromp 2002), and calculate the sensitivity kernels for selected events in 3D models. Ultimately, we aim to obtain 3D anisotropic wavespeed and anelasticity models iteratively in this regional tomography study.

Regional Studies Program. Biological aspects of surface coal mine reclamation, Black Mesa and San Juan Basin  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

This report discusses case study data on surface mine reclamation accumulated at selected mines in the Southwest, specifically the Black Mesa Mine in Arizona and the Navajo Mine located south of Fruitland, New Mexico, in the San Juan Basin. Experimental results have made it apparent that reclamation of disturbed lands cannot begin and end with planting seed. The report therefore considers hydrologic, edaphic, and biotic factors, as well as land use and management, as important aspects of land reclamation. Recommendations are made to initiate, broaden, and intensify research studies in plant succession, productivity, species selection, and attendant soil characteristics, along with grazing practices and land use potential.

DINÁMICA ESPACIO-TEMPORAL DEL HUMEDAL JUAN AMARILLO ENTRE 1950 - 2005  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available

RESUMEN

Se analizó la dinámica del Humedal Juan Amarillo durante el periodo comprendido entre los años 1950-2005. Los resultados muestran que la configuración paisajística del ecosistema ha cambiado notoriamente con una tendencia al incremento en el número, tamaño y tipo de parches. Igualmente se presentan diferencias estructurales importantes entre los diversos periodos de tiempo analizados, ocasionados principalmente por la disminución y desaparición de espejos de agua y el aumento de pasto kikuyo (Pennisetum clandestinum. En cuanto al arreglo espacial de los elementos paisajísticos, no sucedieron cambios importantes en los patrones de distribución espacial de los elementos paisajísticos del humedal. De acuerdo con la dimensión fractal, los elementos del paisaje presentan dos tendencias en cuanto a su complejidad: los elementos introducidos poseen las formas más complejas y los elementos propios del ecosistema tienen formas más regulares. Finalmente, la dinámica del humedal fue modelada con el fin de interpretar cómo las múltiples interacciones entre los elementos paisajísticos han influido en la configuración del humedal a lo largo del tiempo.

Palabras clave: Humedal Juan Amarillo, estructura, composición, dimensión fractal.


ABSTRACT

The dynamics of Juan Amarillos’ wetland were analyzed during 55 year between 1950 and 2005. The results showed that the landscape configuration of the ecosystems has dramatically changed within a trend to increase in number, size, and patch type. Likewise, important structural differences came up between the various periods in question; such differences appear to be related to the reduction and disappearance of the pond and the significant increase of the non native kikuyo grass (Pennisetum clandestinum. Regarding the spatial arrangement of the landscape elements, there were no significant changes in spatial distribution patterns. According to the fractal dimension and complexity, the landscape elements showed two trends: non native and man-made elements are more complex in shape, whereas native elements showed more regular shapes. Finally, the wetland dynamics were modelled with the aim of construing how the multiple interactions of the landscape elements have influenced the wetland configuration over time.

Key words: Juan Amarillo Wetland, structure, composition, fractal dimension.

Full Text Available La filosofía y el filosofar adquieren en la vida de Juan Bautista Ferro lasdimensiones propias de un auténtico pensar que se reflejó en cada acción,en el discurrir diario de la vida académica universitaria o en las "tertuliasrnonologantes" que el propio Ferro concertaba con sus amigos en su casao en plena calle. Ferro fue el ejemplo vivo de una tradición filosófica quecentra su acción sobre el propio filósofo, y el cultivo de la "oralidad" corno"método" para enseñar a aprender. El texto muestra todo esto a través deuna reconstrucción testimonial.

PRELIMINARY GEOID MODEL IN SAN JUAN PROVINCE: A CASE STUDY IN THE ANDES  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

A high-resolution and high-precision detailed gravimetric geoid has been computed for San Juan province in Argentina, ranging from 27 degrees S to 34 degrees S in latitude and 72 degrees W to 65 degrees W in longitude. The gravimetric geoid was calculated using the RTM method, a multiband spherical Stokes Fast Fourier Transformation, and the removerestore technique for the spherical harmonic reference field and the terrain. As an external evaluation, the gravimetric quasigeoid/geoid was compared to the geoid heights obtained from 90 GPS/levelling points available for the province. Finally, a GPS-tailored local geoid, which fits the GPS observations, was computed.

Juan Comas's summary history of the American association of physical anthropologists (1928-1968).  

Science.gov (United States)

This translation of Juan Comas's Summary History of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists was originally published in Spanish by the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, Mexico, in 1969 (Departamento de Investigaciones Antropológicas, Publication 22). Physical anthropologists from North America and members of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists owe Juan Comas a debt of gratitude for having labored to produce this Summary History of the AAPA. There is much useful and interesting material in this document: extensive endnotes that are helpful to the historian of the profession; an appendix of the Journal issues where the proceedings of annual meetings can be found; a detailed listing of contributors of papers to annual meetings from 1930-1968; a warm acknowledgment and history of the contributions of the Wenner-Gren Foundation to biological anthropology; a history of the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology; and comments on the short-lived PA Newsletter. In addition, there are appendices with the founding AAPA Constitution and By-Laws from 1930 and as they existed in 1968. All of this synoptic information saves the reader with interests in the history of the AAPA considerable effort, especially when few university and college libraries have the full (old and new) series of the AJPA on their shelves. We have tried to provide a translation of Comas's history that is faithful to the original Spanish-language publication. In a few cases, we shortened sentences and applied a slightly more modern usage than was popular in the late 1960s. PMID:16369964

Wittgenstein y la teoría contemplativa del significado Observaciones a la tesis de Juan Abugattás  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este ensayo consiste en una lectura crítica de la interpretación que realiza el filósofo peruano Juan Abugattás en torno a la “teoría contemplativa” del Tractatus Logico Philosophicus (TLP de Ludwig Wittgenstein. En particular, se encarga de revisar la tesis de Bachiller de Juan Abugattás en la que afirma que la teoría del significado del TLP es reemplazada por la teoría del uso en la obra posterior de Wittgenstein. El objetivo central de este ensayo es demostrar que la teoría del significado del TLP no es, como pretende Abugattás, una mera teoría contemplativa, y que la teoría del significado de las Philosophische Bemerkungen (Ph. B., a diferencia de lo que sostiene Abugattás, aun mantiene intacta la perspectiva del TLP respecto de cómo el lenguaje puede permitirnos conocer el mundo. En ambos casos, sostengo que la teoría del significado del TLP obedece a una respuesta a la crítica lingüística de Mauthner y sus consecuencias en el plano del conocimiento.Palabras claves: Wittgenstein, teoría del significado, Tractatus Logico Philosophicus, lenguaje, conocimiento.

Creep Transients and Fault Interaction from Repeating Earthquakes Near San Juan Bautista, California  

Science.gov (United States)

Along creeping sections of the San Andreas and other faults, small asperities in the fault zone load and fail in characteristic repeating earthquake sequences which can be used as subsurface creepmeters. Here, we use these virtual creepmeters to examine and compare slip rates on both the northwestern end of the creeping section of the San Andreas Fault near San Juan Bautista and on the nearby sub-parallel Sargent Fault, previously observed to have ~3mm/year of right-lateral creep. While creep on the San Andreas increases dramatically in response to the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and takes about ten years to resume interseismic rates, the Sargent shows little immediate response. The Sargent rather exhibits a very gradual increase of activity after the Loma Prieta earthquake, consistent with its generally lower interseismic slip rate and with static stress change models that show only a minor increase in the stress along the Sargent. When the SAF resumes its interseismic rate, it begins creeping coherently in time with the Sargent, indicating a mutual driving force in the system. Background seismicity in gray points, newly discovered repeaters in black circles (inset). Boxes show study area. Stars show epicenters of 1989 Loma Prieta EQ, 1998 San Juan Bautista EQ, and 2004 Parkfield EQ.

This paper studies thar process, which provides some keys for delving into the situation experienced by converted jews in the dying days of th XVth century, when the Spanish Inquisition had already started its activity, but still in the days before the proliferation of purity of blood statutes, thus retlecting the heavy tension existing beteen old and new christians in those years.[fr] Entre 1487 et 1488, Juan del Río, prébendier de la Cathédrale de Tolède, fut soumis à un procès inquisitorial qui termina par sa condamnation au bûcher. Dans ce travail, on étudie ce procès, qui fournit certaines clefs permettant d'acquérir une connaissance plus approfondie de la situation que traversaient les juifs convertis à la fin du XVe siècle, quand le Saint-Office avait déjà debuté ses activités mais encore à une époque préalable à la proliferation des estatuts de pureté de dans, et de refléter ainsi la forte tension qui existait à cette époque entre les vieux chrétiens et les nouveaux chrétiens.

Se presentan tres aspectos relacionados a la producción de vino y aguardiente: la formación de la propiedad, la comercialización del producto y la mano de obra esclava y asalariada. Ante la falta de fuentes oficiales o privadas que permitan reconstruir la vida económica de la region y, en particular, la empresa vitivinícola, las fuentes jesuitas adquieren un particular valor para conocer dichas actividades. El objetivo es que, a través del estudio de la empresa jesuita, se puedan extraer conclusiones que permitan conocer mejor el desarrollo de la empresa vitivinícola en la región y sus conexiones comerciales, especialmente con el mercado de Buenos AiresThis paper analyzes the viticulture activity of Jesuits in San Juan (Argentina during the colonial period. Three aspects related to the production of wine and brandy, are presented: the formation of property, the trade of products, and slave as well as free labor forces. In light of the fact that there is a lack of official and private sources that allows the reconstruction of the region's economic life, especially, the viticulture enterprise, Jesuit sources become of great value to learn of those activities. The objective is that, through the study of the Jesuit enterprise, it is possible to get conclusions that will permit to better understand the development of viticulture in the region along with its commercial connections, especially with the Buenos Aires market

Faunal composition and organic surface encrustations at hydrothermal vents on the southern Juan De Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

Examination of a small collection of macroinvertebrates from three vents of the southern Juan de Fuca vent field reveals differences between the vents with respect to species composition, species habits, and microbial and metallic deposits on their surfaces. TWo apparently new vestimentiferan species were found, and for the first time the Juan de Fuca palm worm was observed to dwell on smokers. High acidity values recorded in this system may interfere with the process of shell calcification in an archaeogastropod snail. The surfaces of vestimentifer an tubes at two vents are heavily encrusted with microbial and metallic accumulations. Scanning electron microscope, transmission electron microscope, and energy dispersive X ray microanalysis observations show that iron-based crusts on orange tubes are built from accumulations of an Fe-rich particle of distinctive size and shape. Morphological evidence is presented for the microbial origin of Fe-rich particles. Zn-rich particles found on black tubes are not of microbial origin. We suggest that iron deposition on surfaces in the vent environment is initially biocatalytic but subsequent deposits may build by simple inorganic reactions.

Dinosaur Footprints in Lower Cretaceous Beds in San Juan Raya, Southern Mexico and the Paleoenvironmental Implications  

Science.gov (United States)

Dinosaur footprints were traced at San Juan Raya, an important site in Mexico, a world fossil site. This site is found at South-west of the State of Puebla, within the Biosphere Reserve of Tehuacan-Cuitcatlán, to the southwest of the Tehuacan valley. These footprints were recorded by tracing them on transparent paper at Barranca Agua Nueva, at point 18°18.56´N 97°37´W. Using Jacob´s staff a stratigraphic register was generated from 50 m ascending and descending in stratigraphically direction from the bed where footprints were founded. Bivalbes, nerineas, shell fragments, and trigonias were founded in this sequence as well as cross bedding of clays and fine grain sand, some which display ripples. Fifty two footprints were recorded and five different tracks identified, observing two different sizes. The tracks of dinosaur footprints present the common Teropode ichnites. The succession where dinosaur footprints have been found, are interpreted as a peritidal environment. This investigation contributes to an eco-tourism project of San Juan Raya.

Juan de Solórzano Pereira y la defensa del indio en América  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan Solórzano Pereira was outstanding in 17th century Spain both for his vast erudition in Philosophy, Theology and Law and for his thorough knowledge of legislation concerning the American colonies. It was quite natural for Philip III to send him to Peru as Oidor of the Lima Tribunal and give him the mandate to compile and publish the materials dealing with the most fundamental problems of colonial legislation. He did so in three steps: 1.The question of justifying the Spanish takeover. 2. The rightfulness of continuing the Spanish presence in those territories. 3. The critical appraisal of the Spanish Administration and Government in the area.La inmensa erudición jurídica, filosófica y teológica de Juan Solórzano Pereira y el exhaustivo conocimiento de la legislación de Indias hacen de él una figura de primera magnitud en el campo del derecho indiano en el siglo XVII. Ello explica el mandato real que Felipe III le impuso, al ser enviado al Virreinato de Perú como Oidor de la Audiencia de Lima, de recoger y publicar las cuestiones fundamentales referentes al derecho indiano, que redujo a tres: 1. Justicia de la ocupación de las Indias por los españoles; 2. Justicia de la permanencia española en las Indias; 3. Justicia de la Administración y Gobernación españolas en las Indias.

El análisis de imágenes satelitales permitió identificar cinco unidades geomorfológicas caracterizadas por geoformas de diferente morfología, tamaño, orientación y dirección de migración. En la unidad geomórfica 1 (UG1) se incluyen draas de crestas transversales (orientadas al azimut 150º), ligeramente sinuosas, con dunas menores sobreimpuestas. La disposición de sus caras de sotavento indica que este conjunto se desarrolló a partir de paleovientos del sudoeste. En la conformación de la UG2 aparecen también draas transversales con dunas asociadas, sin embargo en este caso la orientación de los primeros evidencia paleovientos del noreste. Por otro lado, las dunas menores se disponen de forma oblicua y se habrían, por lo tanto, formado con posterioridad. En la UG3, ubicada en el centro del campo eólico, se destaca la presencia de grandes hoyos de deflación, de hasta 1000 metros de diámetro y 50 metros de desnivel con respecto a las dunas adyacentes. Así mismo, esta unidad se caracteriza por un diseño enrejado de médanos, resultado de la interferencia de las crestas de los draas pertenecientes a las unidades 1 y 2.

La presencia de geoformas con diferente morfología y orientación indica que el sistema eólico de Médanos Grandes es policíclico ya que en su conformación se sucedieron distintos episodios de crecimiento, bajo distintos patrones de vientos. Las unidades geomórficas identificadas pueden ser tentativamente correlacionadas con los estadios climáticos propuestos por autores anteriores para la región pampeana.

Abstract in english Oaxacan artisans are celebrated for the quality of their work, their business success, and the ability of their goods to transcend space and time.

Nevertheless, there are crafts in Oaxaca that are not viable in the current market and that do not show up in international collections. In this paper, we examine one such craft: basket making in the community of San Juan Guelavia. We argue that the decline in the market for these goods reflects several changes: first, a decline in local use; second, a rise in the costs of production; and third, a lack of support by exporters and an inability to engage the export or tourist markets. In response, local producers have moved into wage labor (locally and through migration) to secure their incomes.

Aspectos clínico-epidemiológicos de la cardiopatía isquémica en San Juan y Martínez, 2009 Clinical and epidemiological aspects of ischemic heart disease in San Juan y Martinez, 2009  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La cardiopatía isquémica es un problema de salud que cobra un gran número de vidas y es la causa de invalidez en la población mundial. Con el objetivo de identificar los aspectos clínicos epidemiológicos que caracterizan a la cardiopatía isquémica en 150 pacientes de 15 años y más, pertenecientes a tres consultorios médicos del Consejo Popular "Galope, San Juan y Martínez", en el periodo comprendido enero _ julio del año 2009, y por ser este el de mayor incidencia y prevalencia en el municipio se realizó una investigación descriptiva y transversal, que incluyó el interrogatorio, examen físico y electrocardiograma a la totalidad de la muestra, procesándose los datos a través del valor porcentual y Ji cuadrado en los casos necesarios. Se encontró un mayor número de hombres que mujeres en la muestra estudiada. En ambos grupos predominaron las edades superiores a 56 años. La cardiopatía isquémica sin angina fue la forma clínica que prevaleció, mientras que las alteraciones del segmento S-T predominaron entre los hallazgos electrocardiográficos. El hábito de fumar, el sedentarismo y la hipertensión arterial fueron los factores de riesgo más frecuentes en la serie. Los mismos se incrementaron a medida que aumento la edad, y todos predominaron de manera significativa en el grupo con cardiopatía isquémica. Se encontró una relación directamente proporcional entre los factores de riesgo asociados entre sí y la cardiopatía isquémica.Ischemic Heart Disease is a health problem that takes a great number of lives off and it is a cause of disability all over the world. The objective of this research was to identify clinical and epidemiological aspects that characterize ischemic heart disease in 150 patients (15 years or older, belonging to three doctor's offices in the Popular Council of "Galope", San Juan y Martinez, Pinar del Rio during January-July 2009. This place presents the greatest incidence and prevalence in the municipality. A descriptive and cross-sectional research was conducted including questioning, physical examination and electrocardiogram to the total of the sample chosen. Data were processed using percentage value and chi square when necessary. In the sample male sex prevailed over the female, and ages older than 56 in both groups. Ischemic heart disease without angina was the prevailing clinical manifestation; meanwhile alterations of the ST-segment were the most common electrocardiographic findings. Smoking, sedentary life and hypertension were the most frequent risk factors in the series, increasing with age and all of them prevailed in the group suffering from ischemic heart disease significantly. A direct relationship between risk factors associated and ischemic heart disease was found.

Aun cuando en ocasiones pareciera que perdiera su visión vanguardista de la realidad y se postrara en el regocijo [...] de los años dorados de la lucha antigomecista, antiperezjimernista y antisistema. Los inicios del siglo XX van a servir de plataforma para definir los elementos de transformación que guiaran de manera significativa las décadas venideras en el orden político, social y económico. Es en este orden donde los estudiantes en diversas generaciones y no en una sola exclusivamente marcaron la pauta para la formación de una verdadera constelación de líderes en variados campos de la acción pública y privada. De allí la importancia de tratar de comenzar a dar importancia al grupo de estudiantes que sirvieron de ejemplo expresivo en la lucha contra un orden establecido que reñía con los ideales renovadores de una juventud por naturaleza rebelde y contestataria.

Se analiza en entorno de sistemas de información geográfica (SIG) la ocurrencia de los procesos de remoción en masa en relación a varios factores o variables condicionantes (litología, elevación, pendiente, orientación e insolación). En la zona de estudio se reconocieron tres ambientes morfoestructurales principales, la Precordillera Occidental al este, integrada mayormente por sedimentitas paleozoicas, la Cordillera Frontal al oeste, caracterizada por el volcanismo permo-triásico, ambas separadas por el valle de Iglesia que comprende principalmente los afloramientos paleógenos-neógenos. Los resultados indican que de las 760 geoformas identificadas como procesos de remoción en masa el 45,53 % corresponden a flujos y de ellos el 75,43 % son activos, siendo el principal factor desencadenante las fuertes precipitaciones de carácter torrencial. Abstract in english This study shows an inventory of lanslides, starting from the interpretation and digital analysis of aerial photographs and satellite images of varied resolution, in the main basins which affect the localities of Malimán, Angualasto and Buena Esperanza, in the Iglesia Department, San Juan Province. [...] The occurrence of landslides in relation to several determining factors or variables (lithology, elevation, slope, aspect, and insolation) is analyzed in GIS environment. Three main morphostructural environments have been recognized in the study area: the Western Precordillera to the western, principally made up of paleozoic sedimentites and the Cordillera Frontal to the east, which is characterized by Permo-Triassic volcanism. Both geological provinces are separated by the Iglesia Valley which comprises mainly the paleogene-neogene outcrops. The results indicate that out of the 760 geoforms identified as landslides, 45,53 % corresponds to flows, and from these 75,43 % are active, being the the main triggering agent, the heavy rains.

Emar despliega así en forma magistral una propuesta vanguardista que da cuenta de la heterogeneidad de tradiciones culturales como impronta de escritura de un sujeto latinoamericano. Abstract in english In paragraph Night 3 of his novella Umbral, Juan Emar utilices hybridism as a generic strategy in the construction of a novella-drama that assign new meanings to the contributions of the metafictional Avant Garde. Our hipothesis is that throught a “parodic refunctionalization” of the distinction bet [...] ween history and fiction is conveying an Avant Garde poetics that promote the spatial and temporal simultaneity. We work with the foucaultian postestructuralism focus which make a distinction between Global History; the modern metanarrative and a General History; that studies the discontinuities in temporals series. The simultaneity poetic’s is in their narrative a mechanism that dislodges a series of binary oppositions as: dramatic work vs. theatrical representation, scenic space vs auditorium, author vs. work, past vs. future, art vs. life, among others. Emar deploys in a masterly way, his Avant Garde proposal of the heterogeneity of cultural traditions as writing impronta of a Latin-American subject.

Estructura comunitaria de helmintos de perros vagabundos de San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima, Perú Community structure of helminths in stray dogs from San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima, Peru  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Thirty stray dogs Canis familiaris Linnaeus, 1758 were collected in San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima, Peru, between January and March 1997 and necropsied for helminths. Three species were collected: the cestodes Dipylidium caninum (Linnaeus, 1758 Railliet, 1892 and Taenia pisiformis (Bloch, 1780 and the nematode Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782 Stiles, 1905. Fifty per cent of the examined dogs showed one or two parasites. A total of 303 (0-116 helminths were recovered and the intensity of infection was 30,3. The Simpson index (C for all parasite species was 0,414, indicating a dominance by one species in the parasite community. The mean diversity in the infracommunities of C. familiaris was H' = 0,038 and uniformity index of Pielou J = 0,207. Dipylidium caninum, T. pisiformis, and T. canis presented a prevalence of infection of 33,30%, 10% and 16,6% respectively. Dipylidium caninum presented the highest frequency and mean intensity of infection. Dipylidium caninum was the helminth with the highest dominance (94% whereas the lowest was due to T. pisiformis (4% and T. canis (2%. Helminths were not related to the age of the hosts, prevalence and mean intensity of infection. Out of the 10 equally divided segments of the intestinal gut, D. caninum was found from the 6th to the 9th segment. T canis preferred almost exclusively the 1st segment while T. pisiformis was randomly distributed.

Pesca exploratoria con trampas alrededor de las islas Robinson Crusoe y Santa Clara, archipiélago de Juan Fernández, Chile Exploratory survey with pots around Robinson Crusoe and Santa Clara islands, Juan Fernandez archipelago, Chile  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Con el objeto de buscar recursos alternativos a la langosta de Juan Fernández (Jasus frontalis, que constituye el objetivo tradicional de los pescadores artesanales, se efectuó una campaña de pesca exploratoria con trampas en torno a las islas Robinson Crusoe y Santa Clara (Archipiélago de Juan Fernández, Chile. Entre el 11 de noviembre de 1996 y el 23 de marzo de 1997 se realizaron un total de 71 salidas de pesca, en las que se caló un total de 241 trampas, entre 50 y 1000 m de profundidad. En estas experiencias se utilizaron distintos diseños de trampas: troncocónico, tetragonal y piramidal, de diferente tamaño y ubicación de las entradas, y trampas langosteras con entrada en un extremo y en la parte superior. Las dos últimas, las utilizan los pescadores del archipiélago para la extracción de la langosta. Las trampas troncocónicas, tetragonales y piramidales fueron caladas con entradas circulares o rectangulares. Los únicos crustáceos capturados correspondieron a: langosta de Juan Fernández (Jasus frontalis, centolla de Juan Fernández (Paromola rathbuni, jaiba remadora (Ovalipes trimaculatus y cangrejo dorado (Chaceon chilensis. La langosta se capturó entre 50 y 100 m; la centolla de Juan Fernández entre 100 y 300 m; el cangrejo dorado entre 200 y 1000 m; mientras que la jaiba remadora se encontró sólo en el veril de 100 m. El único recurso que presenta interés pesquero es C. chilensis, tanto por su abundancia como por la amplia distribución en profundidad y en torno a las islas analizadasLooking for alternative resources to the Juan Fernandez spiny rock lobster (Jasus frontalis, the traditional target species of the artisanal fishermen of the archipelago, an exploratory fishing campaign with fishing pots was conducted around Robinson Crusoe and Santa Clara islands. Between November 11, 1996, and March 23, 1997, a total of 71 fishing journeys were conducted, during which 241 pots were set between 50 and 1000 m depth. In these experiences different pot designs were used: conical-trunk, tetragonal, piramidal, and lobster pots with a wicket on one extreme and lobster pot with an upper wicket. The last two, are the ones often used by the archipelago fishermen to catch lobsters. The conical-trunk, tetragonal and piramidal pots were with circular or rectangular wickets. The resources caught were: Juan Fernandez spiny rock lobster (Jasus frontalis, Juan Fernandez king crab (Paromola rathbuni, rowing crab (Ovalipes trimaculatus and golden crab (Chaceon chilensis. The spiny rock lobster was captured between 50 and 100 m depth, while the rowing crab was found only in the 100 m isobath; Juan Fernandez king crab between 100 and 300 m and the golden crab between 200 and 1000 m.

Monitoreo de la calidad de datos GPS continuo: la estacion UNSJ (San Juan, Argentina)  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Argentina | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Como parte de la red de referencia de operación continua de Argentina, la estación GPS (Global Positioning System) denominada UNSJ (Universidad Nacional de San Juan) fue establecida en la ciudad de San Juan el 6 de Marzo de 2007. Los datos registrados de UNSJ son ampliamente utilizados en aplicacion [...] es catastrales, y sirven como base para la definición de los marcos de referencia geodésicos nacional y regional. Como una componente fundamental de la infraestructura geodésica, resulta conveniente un eficiente control de calidad de los datos crudos y el monitoreo de la estabilidad de una estación GPS de referencia. En este trabajo se presentan los resultados del control de calidad de las observaciones UNSJ luego de dos anos de operación. Para contro l ar y caracterizar el desempeno del receptor GPS y además el medio ambiente de la estación, se eligieron cuatro índices. Ellos son el número de observaciones, multicamino en L1, multicamino en L2 y ocurrencia de saltos de ciclos. También, se evaluó la estabilidad de largo término de la estación UNSJ a través del análisis de las series temporales de las coordenadas semanales provistas por los centros de cálculo SIRGAS (Sistema de Referencia Geocéntrico para las Américas). Completa este estudio el análisis de las coordenadas calculadas por distintos servicios de procesamiento disponibles en Internet. Nuestros resultados indican que durante el período analizado, el funcionamiento de la estación UNSJ fue satisfactorio, produciendo índices de calidad que son aceptables para estándares internacionales. Abstract in english As a part of the Argentine continuously operating reference station network, a GPS (Global Positioning System) station named UNSJ (Universidad Nacional de San Juan) was established in San Juan city on 6th March 2007. The recorded data of UNSJ are widely applied to cadastral surveys and serve as the [...] basis for defining national and regional geodetic reference frames. As a key component of the geodetic infrastructure, an efficient quality control of raw data and stability monitoring of a GPS reference station is highly convenient. In this study, results of quality control of the UNSJ observations after two year of operation are reported. In order to check and characterize the receiver performance and the station environment, four indices were chosen. They are the number of observations, multipath on L1, multipath on L2 and cycle slips occurrence. Also, the long term stability of UNSJ station was evaluated through the analysis of weekly coordinate time series provided by the SIRGAS (Geocentric Reference System for the Americas) calculus centers. The analysis of the coordinates derived from different online processing services completes this study. The results indicate that during the analyzed period, the functioning of the station UNSJ was satisfactory, producing qualit indexes that are acceptable to international standards.

Pb, Sr, and Nd isotopes in basalts and sulfides from the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

Isotopic Pb, Sr, and Nd data were collected by the Alvin submersible from seven basalt glasses in the southern Juan de Fuca Ridge (JFR), giving similar ratios for Pb-206/Pb-204 of about 18.45, for Pb-207/Pb-204 of about 15.47, for Pb-208/Pb-204 of about 37.81, for Sr-87/Sr-86 of about 0.70249, and for Nd-143/Nd-144 of about 0.51315. Data suggest that the basalts are all cogenetic, and that four of the samples are also comagmatic. It is concluded that isotopic data for the JFR and seamount basalts provide additional support for the mantle blob cluster model (Allegre et al., 1984), suggesting the involvement of multiple components in the genesis of ridge basalts, and including an unusual end-member that has nonradiogenic Sr and variable Pb-206/Pb-204 isotopic compositions.

Biostratigraphic evidence of dramatic Holocene uplift of Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge, SE Pacific Ocean  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A study of the biostratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene deposits on Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI on the Juan Fernández Ridge (JFR indicates that a~dramatic but localized uplift occurred since 8000 BP, at a rate of about 8.5 mm yr?1. In fact, supratidal flats and sand layers with marine gastropods (mostly Nerita sp. are now exposed ca. 70 m a.s.l., and covered by transitional dunes. The last volcanic activity on RCI occurred at ca. 0.8 Ma (active hotspot located 280 km further west and there is no sign of a compensating bulge that explains this uplift, isobaths of the sea floor instead suggesting general subsidence. However, modeling indicates that large-scale landslides followed by isostatic rebound are a viable explanation, partially reflected in the low-resolution bathymetry of the area.

Botanical and Geological Significance of Potassium-Argon Dates from the Juan Fernandez Islands  

Science.gov (United States)

Potassium-argon dating of five basalts from the three main islands of the Juan Fernandez (or Robinson Crusoe) Islands of Chile in the southeastern Pacific gives ages of 1.01 ± 0.12 and 2.44 ± 0.14 million years for Masafuera 3.79 ± 0.20 and 4.23 ± 0.16 for Masatierra, and 5.8 ± 2.1 for Santa Clara. These ages are much younger than that of the underlying oceanic plate and are consistent with the origin of the island-seamount chain from a mantle hot spot beneath the eastward moving Nazca plate. The young age for the archipelago suggests that speciation within endemic genera has occurred within the past 4 to 5 million years. Endemic genera of apparently more ancient origins, such as Lactoris and Thyrsopteris, have apparently dispersed to the islands and survive refugially.

San Juan National Forest Land Management Planning Support System (LMPSS) requirements definition  

Science.gov (United States)

The role of remote sensing data as it relates to a three-component land management planning system (geographic information, data base management, and planning model) can be understood only when user requirements are known. Personnel at the San Juan National Forest in southwestern Colorado were interviewed to determine data needs for managing and monitoring timber, rangelands, wildlife, fisheries, soils, water, geology and recreation facilities. While all the information required for land management planning cannot be obtained using remote sensing techniques, valuable information can be provided for the geographic information system. A wide range of sensors such as small and large format cameras, synthetic aperture radar, and LANDSAT data should be utilized. Because of the detail and accuracy required, high altitude color infrared photography should serve as the baseline data base and be supplemented and updated with data from the other sensors.

Seismic anisotropy of the shallow crust at the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

Microearthquake data recorded on four ocean bottom seismometers are used to study shear-wave splitting on the Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge. The covariance matrix decomposition method is used to determine the sensor orientation from explosive shot data and to estimate the anisotropy parameters for 238 earthquake records. At three of the four sites, the results show a remarkably consistent fast direction parallel to the ridge axis. The time delays between the fast and the slow waves range from 40 to 200 ms, with an average of 90 ms. They are not clearly related to earthquake range, focal depth or source-receiver azimuth. The splitting of the shear waves is interpreted as an effect of structural anisotropy due to the presence of ridge-parallel cracks in the shallow crust. If we assume that anisotropy is concentrated in the upper 1-2 km, the splitting times require a high crack density of ~0.1.

Thermal maturity patterns of Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks, San Juan Basin, Colorado and New Mexico  

Science.gov (United States)

Horizontal and vertical thermal maturity patterns and time-temperature modeling indicate that the high levels of thermal maturity in the northern part of the basin are due to either: 1) convective heat transfer associated with a deeply buried heat source located directly below the northern part of the basin or 2) the circulation of relatively hot fluids into the basin from a heat source north of the basin located near the San Juan Mountains. Time-temperature and kinetic modeling of nonlinear Rm profiles indicates that present-day heat flow is insufficient to account for the measured levels of thermal maturity. Furthermore, in order to match nonlinear Rm profiles, it is necessary to assign artifically high thermal-conductivity values to some of the stratigraphic units. These unrealistically high thermal conductivities are interpreted as evidence of convective heat transfer. -from Author

Antidiatom activity of marine bacteria associated with sponges from San Juan Island, Washington.  

Science.gov (United States)

Crude extracts of 52 marine bacteria associated with sponges, which were collected from the sea near San Juan Island, Washington, USA, were screened using diatom attachment assays against Amphora sp., Nitzschia closterium, Sellaphora sp. and Stauroneis sp. to investigate their antidiatom activities. Among these samples, five expressed strong anti-adhesion effects on all four tested diatoms. There was no negative effect observed from those five active samples on the growth of Amphora sp. Those five active samples were prepared from respective isolates, which all belonged to the genus Bacillus based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing analysis. The results of present study indicate that Bacillus may play important roles for sponges' chemical defence against biofouling of diatoms and that the metabolites of Bacillus may be a potential source of natural antifouling compounds.

U, Th, and Pb isotopes in hot springs on the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

Concentrations and isotopic compositions of U, Th, and Pb in three hydrothermal fluids from the Juan de Fuca Ridge were determined from samples obtained by the Alvin submersible. The samples were enriched in Pb and Th relative to deep-sea water, and were deficient in U. No clear relationship with Mg was found, suggesting nonideal mixing between the hot hydrothermal fluids and the cold ambient seawater. Values for U-234/U-238 have a seawater signature, and show a U-234 enrichment relative to the equilibrium value. The Pb isotopic composition has a uniform midocean ridge basalt signature, and it is suggested that Pb in these fluids may represent the best average value of the local oceanic crust.

Una figura funeraria infantil de madera en el Instituto Valencia de Don Juan  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Entre las piezas que componen la colección de escultura del Instituto Valencia de don Juan encontramos la estatua orante de un niño, realizada en madera, tela encolada y yeso. Sus medidas son 77,5 cm de alto, 38 cm de ancho y 38,5 cm de fondo. Presenta elegancia señorial, carácter y vitalidad en su cabeza. Aparece ante nuestros ojos con los mismos ademanes y la misma figura rígida y envarada que los adultos. La actitud recogida junto con su sencilla vestimenta acentúan el intimismo religioso del orante. Se consideró que era interesante encontrar otros ejemplos de este tipo de escultura funeraria infantil en madera, material poco usado en este género debido a su propia naturaleza. La madera se asociaba a transitoriedad…

Análisis de la dinámica del Humedal Juan Amarillo (Colombia y su sostenibilidad  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La recuperación y mantenimiento del humedal Juan Amarillo requiere de un sistema de soporte, subsidiado
y respaldado por el sistema económico del cual el hombre hace parte. Si bien esto implica una inversión, está plenamente justificada por las ganancias que se reciben a cambio, tal como se demuestra con el estudio de los principales flujos de energía y el contenido emergético asociado a estos flujos. Adicionalmente, constituye en primer lugar en un deber del hombre sustituir lo que en cierto momento deterioró, y en segundo lugar es obligación de la administración distrital en proporcionar ambientes sanos para la comunidad. El hombre es ahora el principal actor que regula las relaciones energéticas de los componentes del sistema, es decir, los flujos energéticos que determinan la sostenibilidad, y consecuentemente, explican el comportamiento del sistema y la naturaleza de sus fluctuaciones; por lo tanto, este agente artificial es el factor determinante para su funcionamiento.

Modern Monarchs and Democracy: Thailand’s Bhumibol Adulyadej and Juan Carlos of Spain  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The history of democracy is typically a history of struggle against monarchs and other such autocrats. The elevation of one person over others by virtue of blood and birth has come to be seen as anachronistic; yet some monarchies have managed to survive to this day. This paper analyses two examples of the uneasy coalition between popular sovereignty and royal leadership that is constitutional monarchy. Whereas Juan Carlos of Spain has been described as having steered Spain away from dictatorship, Bhumibol of Thailand has come under scrutiny for allegedly lacking a principled approach to democracy. I argue that structural as much as personal factors influenced the ways in which the two monarchies were legitimised – one by positively responding to the modern aspirations of the king’s subjects, giving him a “forward legitimacy,” the other by revitalising the king’s traditional charisma and opting for “backward legitimacy.”

Uranium ore rolls in Westwater Canyon sandstone, San Juan Basin, New Mexico  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Recent relatively deep uranium-exploration drilling in the Nose Rock area, San Juan Basin, McKinley County, New Mexico, has resulted in the discovery of previously unrecognized uranium ore rolls in gray, unoxidized Westwater Canyon Sandstone of the Morrison Formation. Both the Nose Rock ores and the primary Ambrosia Lake uranium ores were emplaced during the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous erosional interval under the same geologic conditions by the same geochemical-cell process. The red, altered interior ground resulting from the geochemical-cell process has been re-reduced by the subsequent entry of reductants into the formation. The original roll form of the Ambrosia Lake orebodies has been obscured and modified by redistribution related to the present-day active redox interface interweaving with the Ambrosia Lake ores

Analysis of The Surface Radiative Budget Using ATLAS Data for San Juan, Puerto Rico  

Science.gov (United States)

The additional beating of the air over the city is the result of the replacement of naturally vegetated surfaces with those composed of asphalt, concrete, rooftops and other man-made materials. The temperatures of these artificial surfaces can be 20 to 40 C higher than vegetated surfaces. This produces a dome of elevated air temperatures 5 to 8 C greater over the city, compared to the air temperatures over adjacent rural areas. Urban landscapes are a complex mixture of vegetated and nonvegetated surfaces. It is difficult to take enough temperature measurements over a large city area to characterize the complexity of urban radiant surface temperature variability. The NASA Airborne Thermal and Land Applications Sensor (ATLAS) operates in the visual and IR bands was used in February 2004 to collect data from San Juan, Puerto Rico with the main objective of investigating the Urban Heat Island (UHI) in tropical cities.

Montage and other narrative and dramatic mechanisms in El astillero by Juan Carlos Onetti  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In this paper I want to analyze the assembly and the different narrative mechanisms of "El astillero" written by Juan Carlos Onetti. With this purpose, in the first point I analyze the different narrative situations which take part in the creation of two contrary worlds, the reality and the phantom world of the "El astillero", always described in an uncertain time. The second part analyses the way that the different narrations are crossed, setting up a discontinuity effect in the narration and the duplicity of the characters. In the third part we can see how, through the different narrative voices, the narrator sets up a story marked by uncertainty and ambiguity. This uncertainty is the reflection of existence, because behind the farce what remains is the trap of existence.

Biostratigraphic evidence of dramatic Holocene uplift of Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge, SE Pacific Ocean  

Science.gov (United States)

A study of the biostratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene deposits on Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI) on the Juan Fernández Ridge (JFR) indicates that a~dramatic but localized uplift occurred since 8000 BP, at a rate of about 8.5 mm yr-1. In fact, supratidal flats and sand layers with marine gastropods (mostly Nerita sp.) are now exposed ca. 70 m a.s.l., and covered by transitional dunes. The last volcanic activity on RCI occurred at ca. 0.8 Ma (active hotspot located 280 km further west) and there is no sign of a compensating bulge that explains this uplift, isobaths of the sea floor instead suggesting general subsidence. However, modeling indicates that large-scale landslides followed by isostatic rebound are a viable explanation, partially reflected in the low-resolution bathymetry of the area.

Structurally controlled and aligned tight gas reservoir compartmentalization in the San Juan and Piceance Basins  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Recurrent basement faulting is the primary controlling mechanism for aligning and compartmentalizing upper Cretaceous aged tight gas reservoirs of the San Juan and Piceance Basins. Northwest trending structural lineaments that formed in conjunction with the Uncompahgre Highlands have profoundly influenced sedimentation trends and created boundaries for gas migration; sealing and compartmentalizing sedimentary packages in both basins. Fractures which formed over the structural lineaments provide permeability pathways which allowing gas recovery from otherwise tight gas reservoirs. Structural alignments and associated reservoir compartments have been accurately targeted by integrating advanced remote sensing imagery, high resolution aeromagnetics, seismic interpretation, stratigraphic mapping and dynamic structural modelling. This unifying methodology is a powerful tool for exploration geologists and is also a systematic approach to tight gas resource assessment in frontier basins.

Hispano Music and Culture of the Northern Rio Grande: The Juan B. Rael Collection  

Science.gov (United States)

The American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress has recently provided online access to this ethnographic field collection of "religious and secular music of Spanish-speaking residents in rural New Mexico and Southern Colorado." Juan Bautista Rael (1900-1993), a Stanford University professor and linguist, collected these recordings of alabados (hymns), folk drama, wedding songs, and dance tunes in 1940 in New Mexico. Textual transcriptions (in Spanish) are available for many of the 146 audio titles. The Research Materials section provides access to recording logs, correspondence about the collection, and the full text of the introduction to Rael's The New Mexican Alabado, as well as the text of an article by Rael on New Mexican Wedding Songs.
