  1. La feria discursiva de Juan José Arreola

    OpenAIRE

    XIMENA TRONCOSO ARAOS

    2002-01-01

    This paper is a reading of La feria, a Juan José Arreola's novel, as an eminently dialogic, heterogeneous, carnavalesque and fragmentary text that constructs meanings at the macrostructure's level. The treatment of the themes involves the formal writing structure. For this reason it's such an interesting novel. The "feria" as a religious and pagan holiday is the principal subject of this novel; but the text is a fair too, a discursive fair that includes diverse material and spiritual spheres

    2014-01-01

    El gobierno de Cartagena durante el mandato del mariscal de campo Juan José de Palafox (1750-1756) sufrió las perjudiciales consecuencias de su talante prepotente. Los enfrentamientos con las autoridades civiles y de Marina, junto a las actividades delictivas, obligaron a su dimisión secreta. Sin embargo, la parcial e interesada aplicación de la ley dejó sin subsanar la corrupción, a causa de la difícil conciliación de jurisdicciones privilegiadas que perpetuaron los problemas de competencia....

Estos experimentos requerían un número indeterminado de niños donde verificarlos. En España, el pus de cabras sería una alternativa al pus de vaca. En estos territorios era difícil encontrar el pus de vacas. Esta iniciativa del pus hircino no tuvo el éxito esperado.

  5. Juan José Saer’s La grande: another turn, the last, spiral one

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Adriana Mancini

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Juan José Saer (1937–2005 was born in the province of Santa Fe, located in the river coastal region of Argentina, and lived there until 1968. He then moved to Paris until his death, where he also wrote most of his works. His literary project is based on a region – the zone – which represents simultaneously geography and existence: it has a real point of reference, a portion of the Santa Fe riverside area of the Paraná river, and also it is a condition for the opportunity for a conversation between friends; a debate over the representational possibilities of language, the relationship between literature and reality, the twists and turns of philosophy. The characters, native to that region, appear throughout his work; they grow old along with their maker. Each novel completes fictional configurations, progresses both in its conflicts and in those of the group they make up. Their Leitmotiven are remembrance, memory, perception and representation of time in several manifestations. La grande, a posthumous novel, is considered a compendium of Saer’s works. It is composed of seven chapters named after the days of the week, from Tuesday to Monday. The last chapter, Monday, which Saer may have conceived as a coda, consists of a single line. His death does away with time bringing an end to his literary project. This paper comprises an analysis of temporal representation in the novel: the aging of the characters in the saga; the construction of space-time coordinates for narrative development, the formal means used for its representation, the embedding of the historical time through references to Argentina’s last dictatorship, and the functionality of the reference to the days of the week for identifying the respective chapters, both in the context of the novel and the author’s work as a whole.

    Full Text Available Article in German, Abstracts in English, German and Spanish.The papers of Alexander von Humboldt in Cracow (Poland contain materials related to Mexico and Cuba, which Humboldt had collected. Among them is a manuscript describing Teotihuacan by Juan José de Oteyza, whom Humboldt had met during his stay at the “Real Seminario de Minería” in Mexico City. Humboldt himself never visited this pyramid precinct. In cases like these he used his extensive information network to complete his own observations in his travel journals. This can be seen in the following comparison of Oteyza’s manuscript with Humboldt’s text which was published later.

  7. On the falsifications in history: Juan José Heydeck (n. 1755 and his «amazing» discovery of a vaccine against the smallpox

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Olagüe de Ros, Guillermo

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available Juan Jose Heydeck (b. 1755 is a turbid figure that in the last years he is acquiring certain historical relief. His false find of a vaccine has been overvalued, in excess, against the smallpox in goats of Madrid. In this note, which is a response to an article appeared in Asclepio in 2006, this personage is checked from an historical point of view and there is demonstrated the falsehood of his find, fruit of his excessive ambition.

    Juan José Heydeck (n. 1755 es una turbia figura que en los últimos años está adquiriendo cierto relieve historiográfico. Se ha sobrevalorado, en exceso, su falso hallazgo de una vacuna contra la

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hanno Ehrlicher

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available En la Verdadera historia de Hans Staden, de 1557, se puede observar una apropiación táctica de la otredad del caníbal en un relato de aventuras que, más tarde, se integraría en un proyecto editorial con fines estratégicos en un contexto específicamente protestante. El entenado de Juan José Saer (1982 no constituye un simple regreso al imaginario colonial de lo antropofágico, sino que funciona como una compleja “Umschrift” de esta tradición, en el sentido freudiano. La visión del canibalismo en Saer se separa de la de Staden precisamente por haberse producido, con el psicoanálisis, una nueva funcionalización antropológica de la figura del caníbal, que deja de ser el otro externo para convertirse en una otredad interna instalada como condición propia en la psique de cada ser humano

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Pedro Páramo (1955, de Juan Rulfo, y Los Sangurimas (1934, de José De la Cuadra, reformulan con originalidad tópicos y recursos formales del regionalismo latinoamericano. La presencia de una serie de complejas operaciones en torno a la oralidad, el fragmento y la creación de un espacio mítico con personajes e historia propia en Los Sangurimas permite relacionar la búsqueda de De la Cuadra con los procedimientos narrativos y la inquietud estética y cultural de Rulfo. Frente al desafío común de representar una comunidad tradicional en proceso de modernización, cada obra ensaya una resolución particular que permite leer diferentes inflexiones en los modos de representación regionalista. Esta vinculación permite una doble operación crítica: por un lado, actualizar la lectura de Pedro Páramo, enmarcándola en un largo proceso de búsquedas estéticas que lo precedieron y, por otro, revisar la ubicación de Los Sangurimas en la historia de la literatura latinoamericana.Pedro Páramo (1955, by Juan Rulfo, and Los Sangurimas (1934, by José De la Cuadra, unusually rephrase topics and formal elements of the Latin-American regionalism. The presence of the complexity about some items that are related with orality, the passage and the creation of a mythic atmosphere with characters and with an own history in Los Sangurimas allows to relate De la Cuadra's pursue with the narrative procedures and the aesthetic interest in Rulfo's novel. In view of the their common challenge of representing a traditional community in the course of modernization, each work tries out a particular resolution which allows to read different inflections to the regionalist representation modes. This connection makes a double critic procedure possible: the updating of Pedro Páramo reading by framing it in a large process of preceding aesthetic searches and the revision of Los Sangurimas in Latin-American literature history.

  13. PERIODISMO, FICCIÓN Y REALIDAD: A PROPÓSITO DE TODO SON PREGUNTAS, EL OJO DE CERRADURA Y SOMBRAS SOBRE SOMBRAS DE JUAN JOSÉ MILLÁS Journalism, Fiction and Reality in Juan José Millás’ Todo son preguntas, El ojo de la cerradura, and Sombras sobre sombras

    Teresa González Arce

    2008-07-01

    Full Text Available Durante los veranos de 2004, 2005 y 2006, el escritor español Juan José Millás publicó una serie de artículos que más tarde dieron lugar a tres recopilaciones tituladas Todo son preguntas, El ojo de la cerradura y Sombras sobre sombras. Entendidos, a la vez, como preguntas y respuestas suscitadas por fotografías aparecidas en la prensa, los tres volúmenes dan cuenta de una poética sostenida por una concepción espacial del mundo que, de manera explícita, remite a la imagen platónica de la caverna. El escritor utiliza la ficción literaria como una herramienta de interpretación de la realidad -representada aquí por la serie de fotografías- y, al hacer esto, pone en entredicho los límites entre la verdad y las apariencias. Agregar sombras a un mundo poblado por simulacros, parece decir Millás, es la única forma de entender algo en este galimatías en el que vivimos.In the summers of 2004, 2005 and 2006 the Spanish writer Juan José Millás published a series of articles that later appeared in three volumes titled Todo son preguntas, El ojo de la cerradura and Sombras sobre sombras. His essays are best understood as a meditation about press photos that inspire both questions and answers, expressing a poetics grounded in a spatial conception of the world that explicitly invokes the platonic image of the cave. The writer utilizes literary fiction as a tool to interpret reality -represented here in the series of photos- and, in so doing, problematizes the limits between truth and appearance. It is only by adding shadows to a world replete with simulacra, Millás seems to say, that we can make any sense of the world at all.

    Full Text Available The Inquisition trial of Pedro José Velarde in 1768 reveals the life and works of this street poet that was very popular in the market of El Baratillo. Velarde was imprisoned because some of his compositions were dedicated to praise the activities of the jesuits, expelled in 1767.

Esa selva debe ser atravesada para internarse en la intemperie de lo material: aunque en sus ensayos no la nom...

  4. Radioactivity in Zircon from Jos, Central Nigeria

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Mining and processing of zircon along with other minerals, generally for export purposes, have been taking place in Jos, central Nigeria, for several decades. Over the years, there has been increasing concern about the radiological impact resulting from these activities. A previous assessment in the vicinity of processing areas reported an annual dose of 50 mSv which by far exceeds the 1 mSv dose limit for members of the public. In the study, the activity concentrations of 238U and 232Th in 28 samples of zircon from Jos were determined using neutron activation analysis. The results gave concentrations of 466 μg/g (5.75 Bq/g) for 238U and 7054 μg/g (28.62 Bq/g) for 232Th. These results complement the results of earlier assessments and may assist in the proper management of these activities and the choice and implementation of appropriate protective measures. (author)

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Durán López, Fernando

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available In the years 1970-1972, the novelist Juan Goytisolo published several studies and translations on the work of José María Blanco White, which represent a key moment in the recovery of that forgotten writer for the modern Spanish culture. The argument made in this essay is that the consciously identifying strategy applied by Goytisolo on Blanco White, in order to define a Spanish intellectual tradition throughout the centuries, marked by exile and dissent, is in fact a deformation of the figure and thought of the writer from Seville. Blanco White’s reception in Spain, however, has been conditioned by that reading.En torno a los años 1970-1972 el novelista Juan Goytisolo publica varios estudios y traducciones sobre la obra de José María Blanco White, que suponen un momento clave en la recuperación de ese olvidado escritor para la moderna cultura española. La tesis formulada en el presente artículo es que la estrategia conscientemente identificadora que aplica Goytisolo sobre Blanco White, a fin de definir una tradición intelectual española a lo largo de los siglos marcada por el exilio y la disidencia, supone de hecho una deformación de la figura y el pensamiento del escritor sevillano. La recepción de Blanco White en España ha quedado, sin embargo, condicionada por esa lectura.

    Full Text Available Desde un enfoque cientificista, José Ladislao Andara considera que las ideas tienen fuerza para cambiar el medio social. La civilización de un pueblo la determinan sus ideas y costumbres y la influencia del medio físico, más la herencia. Para modificar el estado civilizatorio de un pueblo tienen que acontecer grandes cambios. Nuestra cultura la definen la raíz española, india y africana. El mestizaje, al que considera positivo, ha sido típico entre los venezolanos.

  12. Radioactivity effects of Jos tin mine tailings

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The activity concentration of ''2''3''8U and ''2''3''2Th in Jos tin mine tailings was measured using High Purity Germanium detector (HPGe) in the Centre for Energy Research and Development, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. Preset counting time of 30,000s was used for each sample to avoid statistical errors. Results showed the activities varied from one site to another. The highest concentration of both ''2''3''8U and ''2''3''2Th was consistently obtained in APT1Dru sample which was collected from monazite separation site. The activity of ''2''3''8U measured range from 1.880.24 Bq/kg to 784.2503.9 Bq/kg while the activity of ''2''3''2Th obtained range from 1.83 0.16 Bq/kg to 3616.1338.08 Bq/kg. The ratio of activity of Thorium to Uranium is greater by factor of 5 in all samples. The hot spot is APT1Dru site so also THS1 and APT1A1 can be said to hot because of high activity measured. Generally, the tailings contain both ''2''3''8U and ''2''3''2Th in high proportion which is traceable to the health concern of the inhabitants and most especially those who use the tailings for construction of dwelling and farming

    Full Text Available Background: Allergic conjunctivitis (AC may follow seasonal or perennial pattern. There are climatic and racial risk factors involved in some types of AC. It is more prevalent in warm climatic conditions and among Afro-Caribbeans, Arabs and Asians and less among the White populations. Clinical presentations also seem to follow climatic and genetic predisposition. The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of AC and its clinical presentations in a hospital setting in this region in people of all ages. Materials and Methods: This is a hospital-based retrospective study of new patients seen at Adoose Specialist Hospital, Jos the capital city of Plateau State in North Central Nigeria with clinical diagnosis of AC from 2000 to 2009. Results: There were 972 subjects, 474 (48.8% males and 498 (51.2% females with M:F ratio of 1:1.05. The most common symptom was itching followed by redness, pains, watery/mucoid discharge, sticky eyes, puffy eyes and photophobia. The presence of papillae in the upper tarsal or lower conjunctiva, a discrete or confluent gelatinous hypertrophy of the limbal conjunctiva (Trantas dots, hyperpigmentation, hyperemia/chemosis of the conjunctiva were the common signs. AC was more prevalent in those aged 1?16 years 38.4% decreasing to 4.9% in the age group above 50 years. The presentation followed perennial pattern, with a peak around July. The most prevalent ocular comorbid condition was refractive error (distant RE and presbyopia in 15.4%, followed by pterygium/pinguecula 3.6%, bacterial conjunctivitis in 2.2%, glaucoma 2.1% and eyelid disorders 1.7%. Cataract was present in1.3%, and keratopathy1.1%. Other conditions such as episcleritis, dry eye, vitamin A deficiency and posterior segment disease were also present in decreasing order. Systemic association were few with generalised body atopy in 0.3%. Conclusion: The prevalence of AC was 32% and is similar to what pertains in some of the African hospital studies, but differs in presentation from the Caucasians.

    Velasco Morgado, Raúl

    2015-01-01

    In this paper, we analyse the contribution of the anatomical school of José Escolar (1913-1998) to embryology during the first two decades of the Francoist dictatorship. Special attention is paid to the process by which the Spanish group, with the support of the new Superior National Research Council, made contact with the German morphology being developed by Hugo Spatz (1888-1979) at the Max Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung. Our study reveals the numerous influences that finally led to the anatomy and embryology of Escolar. In Spain, we found a direct influence of the Gegenbaurian morphology of Gumersindo Sánchez Guisande (1894-1976) and the neuroanatomy of Juan José Barcia Goyanes (1901-2003), full of references to studies by Braus. International contacts of the "Escolarian group", first with North America and then with Germany, created a homogeneous group with a single anatomy (functional and ontophylogenetic) but with so many research interests that subspecialisations had to be developed. An important embryological work resulted from an intense relationship with the German anatomical community during the 1950s. Escolar worked in this field on the development of the amygdala and allocortex, Fernando Reinoso studied the embryology of the diencephalon and Smith Victor Agreda, along with the German scientist Rudolf Diepen, made some important discoveries on the development of the hypothalamic-pituitary system.

    Russia posed a problem for Byron when writing Don Juan, for although he had never been there, the geographical, historical, and sexual themes of his comic epic dictated that his hero should go there. As a result of his study of Scott’s Waverley Novels, he was determined that no episode should pass without a firm backing either in his own experience, or in authentic prose sources. Don Juan should have a reality which his Turkish Tales, at least one of which, Lara, was, as he confessed to his p...

    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.

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. Lands were divided and attributed, deterioration of traditional communal organization was visible. Conflicts between small landlords and neighboring haciendas were multiplied A real class struggle appeared.

Through an historic chronicle and a testimonial novel, Varas produces discourses diverging from official twentieth-century Chilean history. Furthermore, he reflects a key negotiation of the post-Pinochet Chilean identity. The comparative analysis of these texts can be thought of as a project on ‘chileanness’ and reconciliation; a complex Chilean identity dealing with a wide collective memorybelonging to the years of Popular Unity, the military coup, lifein exile and life under the dictatorship.

    Full Text Available Background: Abdominal injuries contribute significantly to battlefield trauma morbidity and mortality. This study sought to determine the incidence, demographics, clinical features, spectrum, severity, management, and outcome of abdominal trauma during a civilian conflict. Materials and Methods: A prospective analysis of patients treated for abdominal trauma during the Jos civil crises between December 2010 and May 2012 at the Jos University Teaching Hospital. Results: A total of 109 victims of communal conflicts with abdominal injuries were managed during the study period with 89 (81.7% males and 20 (18.3% females representing about 12.2% of the total 897 combat related injuries. The peak age incidence was between 21 and 40 years (range: 3–71 years. The most frequently injured intra-abdominal organs were the small intestine 69 (63.3%, colon 48 (44%, and liver 41 (37.6%. Forty-four (40.4% patients had extra-abdominal injuries involving the chest in 17 (15.6%, musculoskeletal 12 (11%, and the head in 9 (8.3%. The most prevalent weapon injuries were gunshot 76 (69.7%, explosives 12 (11%, stab injuries 11 (10.1%, and blunt abdominal trauma 10 (9.2%. The injury severity score varied from 8 to 52 (mean: 20.8 with a fatality rate of 11 (10.1% and morbidity rate of 29 (26.6%. Presence of irreversible shock, 3 or more injured intra-abdominal organs, severe head injuries, and delayed presentation were the main factors associated with mortality. Conclusion: Abdominal trauma is major life-threatening injuries during conflicts. Substantial mortality occurred with loss of nearly one in every 10 hospitalized victims despite aggressive emergency room resuscitation. The resources expenditure, propensity for death and expediency of timing reinforce the need for early access to the wounded in a concerted trauma care systems.

    Full Text Available Pedro Pramo es quizs uno de los textos que ms ha influido en las letras hispanoamericanas. Muchos son los estudios que se han realizado a esta obra, algunos de ellos insisten en el tono pesimista de la misma. La novela inicia con un viaje, el del hijo que sale en busca de su padre para cumplir la [...] promesa hecha a la madre en el lecho de muerte. Esta ha sido la interpretacin ms difundida por la crtica. Sin embargo, si se lee detenidamente el discurso del protagonista se cae en la cuenta de que no es se el motivo principal de su viaje a Comala. En realidad, Juan Preciado es movido por la esperanza que era "aquel seor" llamado Pedro Pramo, no por la promesa hecha a Dolores, de la que l mismo dice que no pensaba cumplir hasta que comenz a llenarse de sueos, de ilusiones y de esperanza. El viaje de Juan va de la esperanza a la ilusin para terminar en la muerte. La accin se arraiga en ese sentimiento que mueve a todo ser humano y se convierte as en una extensa metfora del sentido (o sin sentido) de la vida. Este escrito reflexiona sobre la presencia de la esperanza y de la ilusin en la novela de Juan Rulfo. Abstract in english Pedro Paramo is perhaps one of the literary texts that has had the greatest influence on Spanish American letters. Many studies have been done related to this work, and some of them insist on its pessimistic tone. The novel begins with the journey of a son who sets out to look for his father in orde [...] r to fulfill the promise made to his mother as she lay dying. This has been the most widely diffused interpretation given by critics. Nevertheless, if one reads carefully the discourse of the protagonist, one comes to understand the principle motive for his journey to Comala. In reality, Juan Preciado is motivated by the hope that it was "that man" named Pedro Paramo that prompted the journey, not the promise made to Dolores, something that he himself says that he was not planning to fulfill until he started to be filled with dreams, illusions, and hope. Juan's journey goes from hope to illusion, culminating in death. The action is rooted in that sentiment that moves every human being and thus changes in an extensive metaphor for the meaning (or without meaning) of life. This manuscript reflects on the presence of hope and illusion in the novel of Juan Rulfo.

The comparative results focus on Francisco Resende’s technique of execution, the materials used in the paint layers and on the support of the three works which are being studied. Although executed in the same period, they show different conservation problems - namely delamination and blistering of the paint layers, and also corrosion of the support.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT: The fascination that certain poets of the Generación del 36, José Antonio Muñoz Rojas (1909-2009 among them, held for certain figures of the Siglo de Oro, such as Juan de Jaúregui, Francisco de Rioja and Pedro Soto de Rojas, has prompted us to make a analysis of the importance attention given by Muñoz Rojas to the work of 17th century fellow poet Pedro Espinosa (1570-1650, also from Antequera. Such importance is evident in the work that he produced, mainly as a literature researcher and critic in the nineteen-fifties, but also in his own work as an author. Therefore, we analyze the poetic influences of Espinosa in Las cosas del campo, a work written between 1946 and 1947, during Muñoz Rojas’ last years in Andalusia before he took up residence in Madrid at the outset of the fifties. Furthermore, and specifically, we make an in-depth study of the parallelisms we find: insofar as the treatment afforded to Nature and certain features of style. RESUMEN: El interés que los poetas de la generación del 36 y, entre ellos, José Antonio Muñoz Rojas (1909-2009, prestaron a algunas figuras del Siglo de Oro como Juan de Jáuregui, Francisco de Rioja y Pedro Soto de Rojas, nos lleva a analizar la atención que el poeta antequerano presta a otro poeta paisano del siglo XVII, a Pedro Espinosa (1578-1650, en primer lugar, en su labor de investigación y de crítica literaria, desempeñada fundamentalmente en la década de los cincuenta, y en su propia obra literaria. Estudiamos, por este motivo, la huella poética de Espinosa en Las cosas del campo, una obra escrita entre 1946 y 1947, en los últimos años vividos por el poeta en Andalucía antes de iniciar la nueva etapa madrileña al comienzo de los cincuenta; nos detenemos, especialmente, en los paralelismos que presentan: en el tratamiento de la Naturaleza y en los rasgos de estilo.

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available All critics agree on considering that Mara de Zayas writes inspired by the anger that she feels for the women condition. Both in her prose and in the only play we know, La traicin en la amistad, Zayas censures with irony and wit the don-Juan type who deceives women leaving them without honour. She does it elaborating an intertextual relationship with El burlador de Sevilla. Specifically, in the play she uses three characters: Liseo, who deceives three women, Fenisa, who is a don-Juan female even more exaggerated than Liseo, and don Juan, the less donjuanesco of all. As a matter of fact, Zayas creates an anti-don Juan similar to the one that Ventura de la Vega will realize in the XIX century with his play El hombre de mundo, a parody of Zorrillas Don Juan Tenorio; nevertheless it has a clear ethical purpose: to warn women of his age in order to avoid mens abuses.Los crticos concuerdan en que Mara de Zayas escribe inspirada por la clera que le provoca la condicin femenina coetnea. Tanto en sus novelas como en la nica comedia conservada, La traicin en la amistad, Zayas censura con sutil irona al tipo donjuanesco que se burla de las mujeres dejndolas sin honor, y lo hace entablando un complejo e ingenioso dilogo intertextual con El burlador de Sevilla. De forma especial, en la pieza lo hace a travs de tres figuras: Liseo, que engaa a tres mujeres, Fenisa, un don Juan mujer an ms hiperblico que Liseo, y don Juan, el menos donjuanesco de todos. En definitiva, crea un anti-don Juan parecido al que Ventura de la Vega realizar en el siglo XIX con El hombre de mundo, parodia del Tenorio de Zorrilla, pero con una clara intencionalidad tica: la de aleccionar a las mujeres de su poca para que aprendan a esquivar a los hombres que abusan de ellas.

    Full Text Available In 1913, feeling the European uneasy spirits due to the threatening closeness of the Great War’s outbreak, the first collection/poem book of José Moreno Villa (poet and painter who stands in between Modernism and Avant-gardes at the beginning of the XX century of the Spanish literature appears published with the title of Garba. This work has been considered to be a modernist book of youth, inside a Modernism «a la andaluza,» conceiving Modernism as a syncretic «movement», hybrid from different trends, from Parnasianism to Symbolism, suffering from the decadentism of the fin de siècle’s fits. In a general sense, however, Garba can be seen as a work of its times in its European context, a work proper to a historical and social moment of crisis in the traditional values and changes in time perceptions. Without forgetting about its Spanish context, this short analysis has the aim of highlighting the unity of the work as a whole, a unity which is based on a cyclical structure close to the time perception of Nature —against mechanized time—, trying to break free from that alienated feeling which the industrialization of the beginning of the century conveys. Therefore, Garba may be seen as a work which reflects all the concerns about time perception which other contemporary authors were suffering far beyond the Spanish frontiers.En 1913, sintiendo el espíritu de incomodidad europea por la cercanía de la explosión de la Gran Guerra, aparece publicada bajo el título de Garba, la primera colección/libro de poemas de José Moreno Villa, poeta y pintor que se mueve entre Modernismo y vanguardias de comienzos del siglo XX en las letras españolas. Garba ha sido considerada como una obra modernista de juventud, dentro de un propio «Modernismo a la andaluza», entendiendo modernismo como un «movimiento» sincrético, híbrido de diferentes tendencias, desde el parnasianismo al simbolismo, pasando por el decadentismo del mal de fin de siglo. De una forma general, sin embargo, puede verse esta creación como una obra de su tiempo en su contexto europeo, obra propia de un momento histórico y social de crisis en los valores tradicionales y cambios en las concepciones temporales. Sin olvidar su contexto español, este breve análisis tiene como objetivo destacar la unidad de la obra como conjunto, basada en una estructura cíclica cercana a la percepción del tiempo de la naturaleza —frente al tiempo mecanizado—, intentando escapar de ese espíritu alienado que conlleva la industrialización del comienzo de siglo. Es decir, Garba puede verse como una obra reflejo de las inquietudes en la percepción temporal que sufrían otros autores coetáneos más allá de las fronteras españolas.

    2008-03-01

    Full Text Available Con Amati cani ci discostiamo per una volta dalle pubblicazioni a carattere scientifico, per dare il giusto risalto ad un’interessante raccolta di narrativa che esplora il rapporto tra l'uomo e il suo miglior amico. José Jorge Latria, noto soprattutto per essere un esponente di spicco della canzone politica portoghese e per le sue opere poetiche, teatrali e di letteratura per ragazzi, nello scrivere questo libro compie un vero e proprio atto d’amore verso i cani, con il preciso intento di costringere i lettori ad eliminare dal proprio vocabolario il gratuito modo di dire ‘mondo cane’. L’Autore delinea brevi ritratti di cani che, da Argo in poi, hanno accompagnato da amici veri i loro celebri padroni nella buona e nella cattiva sorte: racconta cioè la storia di quei cani che non sono sprofondati nella voragine dell’oblio perchè i loro padroni hanno raggiunto la celebrità nel mondo della letteratura, della politica, del cinema, delle scienze o della musica. Con a fianco un amico fedele come un cane, la vita ha avuto un sapore diverso per Ernest Hemingway, Isaac Newton, Sigmund Freud, Buster Keaton, Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, John Steinbeck, Lord Byron, Tim Burton e altri ancora, tutti personaggi che sono presenti in questo libro grazie ai cani che hanno condiviso con loro la vita e le memorie. La lettura di Amati cani dà piacere poichè in ognuno di questi racconti batte, affettuoso e delicato, il cuore di un cane; ma dà anche un pò da pensare in quanto celebra in maniera molto tenera l’amore, la fedeltà e la solidarietà tra l’uomo e il suo speciale amico a quattro zampe.

  7. José Martí y la ciencia

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available Nuestro José Martí, ejemplo de una formación humanística integral, escribió en una carta a María Mantilla:”Donde yo encuentro poesía mayor es en los libros de ciencia…” Martí vio la ciencia como un fenómeno social y consideró que el desarrollo científico técnico debía estar en función de la satisfacción de las necesidades de las grandes mayorías. Su sistemática voluntad  de cultivarse, de tratar de entender al mundo y no sólo de vivirlo, de razonarlo, fue el motor principal que llevaría a Martí a hacerse de una cultura científica y técnica poco común entre los hombres de su época. También el hecho de vivir durante muchos años en los Estados Unidos le permitió analizar con  profundidad y realismo la sociedad de la época, y por tanto llegó a tener una visión muy avanzada de la relación hombre – naturaleza - sociedad, llegando a convertirse en un gran divulgador de los avances de la ciencia y la técnica de aquella época. La originalidad del periodismo de nuevo tipo que inicia José Martí como vehículo para la divulgación científico - técnica encuentra una de sus más altas expresiones en la revista “La América”. Esta publicación había comenzado en abril de 1882, en Nueva York, bajo la dirección de Rafael de Castro Palomino, quien solicita la colaboración del poeta. A partir del mes de marzo de 1883, el Maestro redacta “La América” en su totalidad, desde los titulares hasta los artículos ensayísticos. Martí caracteriza “La América” como “periódico útil”, pues se dedicó a divulgar los adelantos de la industria, comercio y agricultura de los productores de la América del Norte, y en el avisador prudente de los compradores de la América del Sur. Este carácter de la publicación permite a José Martí tratar desde las páginas de “La América” los recientes descubrimientos científicos, la reseña detallada de las exposiciones que exhibían los últimos logros de la técnica, así como el comentario de libros nuevos y la reflexión sobre importantes aspectos de las relaciones económicas que trataban de imponer los Estados Unidos a nuestra América. Especial énfasis pone en subrayar la necesidad de la formación científica como soporte esencial de la educación en nuestros pueblos. En sus apuntes, Martí destaca la necesidad de libertad del hombre para hacer ciencia cuando precisa que…”El siglo XVIII fundó la Libertad; el siglo XIX fundará la Ciencia, así no se ha roto el orden natural y la Ciencia vino después de la Libertad, que es madre de todo. Los hombres parecen estatuas de oro que juegan con fango, tienen celos uno de otros, y con el ruido que hacen sus querellas, no se oyen las voces pacíficas del ejército de sabios…”, o sea, solo en la paz, hija de la libertad, se puede hacer ciencia prudente. Así llegaba Martí a la ciencia, a través de la libertad como amante y luchador que era por alcanzarla en su América a la que dedicaba su obra señalando su camino.

  8. From surfaces to magnetic properties: special section dedicated to Juan Rojo

    Surface physics and magnetism, in particular the connection between surface defects, reduced dimensionality or size, crystal structure, electronic density of states and the mechanical and magnetic properties of solids, were always at the core of Juan Rojo's scientific interest and output. Both fields seem to meet at the nanoscale, a privileged playing field which is ideal for testing theoretical concepts, exploring new physics or probing a wealth of new, stunning and unheard-of applications. Upon reducing size or dimensionality, either in bulk systems or in thin films, surfaces and surface effects are telling. Thus, for instance, an ultra-thin coating can make nanoparticles of non-magnetic materials exhibit magnetic behaviour; or atomic steps can modify the local mechanical properties of a metallic single crystal. In this special section there are eight invited papers by disciples and close collaborators of Juan Rojo, that cover an ample spectrum of the above mentioned topics. The first paper, by Palacio et al, investigates the temperature and oxygen partial pressure conditions for FeO mono- and bi-layer growth on Ru(0001). The following paper, by Cortés-Gil et al, reports on the dramatic change in the electric resistivity of the manganite perovskite (La0.5Ca0.5)z MnO3 as a function of Ca content, an effect related to the removal of a charge-ordered state and a magnetic transition. Baeza et al study biomaterials for bone cancer treatment and skeletal reinforcing, as well as targeted magnetic nanoparticles used for intracell hyperthermia in cancer therapies. In the following paper, Marcano et al, assisted by a multi-technique approach, revisit the extraordinarily rich magnetic phase diagram of the Kondo system CeNi1- x Cux down to 100 mK temperatures. The magnetic field dependence of the martensitic transition temperature of the meta-magnetic shape memory alloy Ni50Mn34.5In15.5 in a crystalline and amorphous phase, in fields up to 13 T, is the subject of the paper by Barandiarán et al. In the following paper, Crespo et al review the effect of organic and inorganic coatings on magnetic nanoparticles, showing that the coating can tune the magnetic properties of metallic and oxide nano-sized particles. Barja et al report on ordered magnetic ion structures formed by evaporation of Mn and Fe on self-assembled layers of tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) molecules on Cu(111). Finally, Rodríguez de la Fuente et al investigate the role of surface defects on the physico-chemical properties of metals and oxides in a variety of scenarios, showing how the surface controls the mechanical properties probed at the nanoscale or the chemical reactivity. Acknowledgments The editors are grateful to all the invited contributors to this special section of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter .

    Full Text Available ¿Cómo ha sido el humor popular en tiempos de crisis? Esa parece ser la invitación que nos hace el autor del texto al revisar los episodios más notables del teatro cómico y del humor revisteril chileno durante los años más duros de la Gran Depresión. El espacio físico, los artistas, incluso los títulos de las obras hacen referencia a una vida nocturna que ha desaparecido de Santiago. A través de la prensa, Maximiliano Salinas nos hace testigos de las disputas entre los representantes de la cultura de elite y los defensores del humor criollo, representado en la figura del personaje Juan Verdejo. Como en un carnaval, comprendemos que la dureza y el sufrimiento de la vida se convierten, por medio de estos artesanos del gesto y la palabra ingeniosa, en una explosión de creación artística y combate de la depresión económica y también sicológica.

    Full Text Available Con el empleo de los métodos de la investigación histórica se realizó una búsqueda en las Obras Completas de José Julián Martí y Pérez acerca de su pensamiento relacionado con la salud, y se encontraron suficientes citas textuales que permitieron enmarcarlo como uno de los más grandes pensadores sanitaristas de su tiempo, pues incursionó en todos los campos de la higiene, la epidemiología y, en sentido general, de la salud pública, la cual comprende, entre sus partes integrantes, todas las ciencias de la salud. Su aporte se hizo más brillante cuando analizó cuál era la verdadera medicina, a la que denominó Higiene. Se demuestra, mediante el análisis de toda la producción literaria de Martí relacionada con el campo de la salud, la profundidad con que él analizó los problemas de la pobreza y la miseria de los pueblos latinoamericanos y cómo, de una manera brillante, los relacionó con la enfermedad y con la muerte. También se demuestra que Martí fue un precursor en Latinoamérica del planteamiento de la responsabilidad del Estado en la preocupación y en la solución de los problemas de salud-enfermedad de sus pueblos. Terminamos esta búsqueda con unos de sus versos donde, haciendo gala de su fervoroso patriotismo, comparó a los médicos españoles que él conoció con los médicos cubanos.A search of José Julián Martí Pérez's thinking related to health was made in his Obras Completas by using methods of historical research. Enough textual quotations were found allowing to consider him as one of the greatest health thinkers of his time, since he explored all the fields of hygiene, epidemiology and, in general sense, of public health, which comprises among its component parts all the health sciences. His contribution became brighter when he analyzed what real medicine was, which he called Hygiene. By analyzing all the literary production of Martí concerning the health field, it is proved the deepness with which he studied the problems of poverty and misery of the Latin American countries and how, in a brilliant way, he related them to disease and death. It is also showed that Martí was a precursor in Latin America on stressing the responsibility of the State as regards the preoccupation and solution of the health-disease problems of its peoples.We conclude this search with one of his verses, where showing his fervent patriotism, he compared the Spanish doctors he met with the Cuban doctors.

    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.

    Full Text Available Dentro de la rica y poco estudiada tradición de la literatura popular de Chile se destaca en el siglo XIX la figura del poeta y dramaturgo Juan Rafael Allende Astorga (1848-1909. En este estudio se hace una presentación del carácter carnavalesco de su obra literaria durante la década de 1880, expresada en los popularísimos volúmenes de poesía firmados como El Pequén y en su periódico de caricaturas El Padre Padilla. A contrapelo del estiramiento y britanización burguesa que caracterizó a su tiempo, Allende asoció su espíritu festivo a las luchas democráticas, y en particular al nacimiento del Partido Democrático, una nueva forma de hacer política de cara a las necesidades concretas y materiales de los trabajadores y "rotos" chilenos, a partir de 1887. El espíritu de la élite era para Allende el de una forzada e hipócrita cuaresma impuesta al pueblo común. La forma de combatir ese mundo era la aparición del Carnaval, como una exaltación de sus valores a través del banquete, el erotismo, la fiesta y la subversión. Este espíritu recorre gran parte del discurso literario de Allende, incluso permitiendo comprender, desde su mirada de un "mundo al revés", la conducta pública del Presidente José Manuel Balmaceda ante la élite de Chile.In the rich but little researched tradition of the popular literature of Chile, the figure of the poet and playwright Juan Rafael Allende Astorga (1848-1909 brigthly shines in the XIX century. In this paper, a presentation of a festive nature of his literary production during the 1880's is made; it is expressed in the very popular volumes of poetry under the nickname of "El Pequén" (a local kind of hawk and in his newspaper of cartoons "El Padre Padilla". Against the grain of the stiffness and anglicism of the bourgeoisie that characterized his epoch, Allende associated his festive spirit to the democrative struggles, and in particular to the birth of the Democratic Party, a new approach to practice politics facing the concrete and material needs of the labourers and Chilean "rotos" (the deprived as of 1887. The spirit of the élite was for Allende the one of a forced and hypocritical Lent imposed on the common people. The way to challenge that world was the publication of "Carnaval" as an elation of their values through banquets, eroticsm, feasts and subversion. This spirit runs through a large extend of Allende's literary discourse to the point of allowing from his view of a topsy-turvy world to understand the public behaviour of President José Manuel Balmaceda and the élite of Chile.

    de Las Aguas, J Terencio

    2009-11-01

    In this article by Juan de Azua, published in the second issue of Actas Dermosifiliogrficas in 1909, the author reports his experience in 139 patients, most of them from Hospital San Juan de Dios, Madrid,Spain, and states he is sure that leprosy is a contagious disease. He discusses the factors related to contagion,which occurs in a closed and family environment, emphasizing socioeconomic factors such as hygiene and promiscuity. He considers direct contact to be important, though also recognizing indirect contact through drinks and food; he totally rejects a hereditary mechanism. Epidemiologically, he draws attention to the higher prevalence of the disease in Andalusia, though not forgetting "La Lepra de Ultramar [leprosy from distant lands]"-32 cases in Spaniards in Cuba and the Philippines. He believes isolation in hospitals or special sanatoriums, such as San Juan de Dios or San Lzaro in Santiago, Granada, and Seville, to be the best prophylaxis, and he considers it would be appropriate to create "Hospitals for poor lepers".

    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.

Estimaciones adicionales de la sobrepresión y radiación térmica producida durante el siniestro son llevadas a cabo para explicar el efecto dominó producido como consecuencia del incidente. Estas estimaciones dan evidencia de que las instalaciones en la planta de San Juan Ixhuatepec tenían un nivel de riesgo moderado lo cual se contrapone a la percepción de la sociedad en relación al riesgo de la compañía Pemex, propietaria de la planta. Este trabajo concluye que el accidente fue principalmente debido a errores humanos, así como a la pésima ubicación de la planta.The Dow fire and explosion index and the quantitative risk assessment methodology are applied to analyze one of the most unfortunate accidents in Mexican history: the explosion of gas storage tanks at the San Juan Ixhuatepec plant in Mexico. Additional calculations of over-pressure and thermal radiation are carried out to further explain the domino effect produced as a consequence of the accident. The results give evidence that facilities in San Juan Ixhuatepec had a moderate risk level which is in disagreement with people’s perception of the Pemex company, proprietary of the plant. This study concludes that the accident was mainly due to human error, as well as the inappropriate location of the plant.

    Full Text Available We analyzed the composition, diversity, and abundance of marine fish at rocky reefs off San José island, Mexico between October 2001 and August 2002. Fish species were recorded using a visual census in 5 sampling areas of 50 by 5 meters at 2 depths, shallow (1-3 meters and intermediate (5-7 meters. A total of 26 946 organisms were counted, belonging to 84 species. The families Serranidae (9 species, Labridae (8, Pomacentridae (7, and Haemulidae (6 were the most representative. We measured the rugosity of the bottom surface, which showed a positive relationship with abundance, richness, and fish diversity. The ocean bottom off San José island is covered with various size rocks that offer more feeding and refuge areas to fish assemblages than other areas. The ecological index increased during the warm season. Diversity and richness showed significant variations (PSe analizó la estructura íctica de los arrecifes rocosos de Isla San José, México entre octubre del 2001 y agosto del 2002.

La rugosidad del sustrato presentó una correlación positiva con la abundancia, riqueza y diversidad de especies de peces, lo que podría indicar que zonas con altos valores de rugosidad ofrecen a los peces más áreas de alimentación y refugio. Los índices ecológicos mostraron una tendencia de incremento de especies durante la temporada cálida. La diversidad y riqueza específica presentaron variaciones significativas entre profundidades (P<0.05, con valores más altos en los sitios expuestos de la isla ( Conejo, Pardito y San Francisquito.

The stratified systematic random method was used in the selection of sample area/location. A total of (10 out of the existing (20 wards were systematically selected, while in each of the wards, two wells with one each from higher and lower elevations were randomly selected in which water samples were collected. The samples collected were analyses at UNICEF (WATSAN Laboratory Bauchi. USEPA method of water analysis was used to test for the chemical parameters. Pearson product moment correlation co-efficient was used test for the relationship between high and low elevation in the sample elements, as well as mean and standard deviation. The results indicates that pH, E.C, TDS, Pb, As and Cyanide appears within NSDWQMPL, while NO2, Cl, F, Mn, Mg, Ca, Cu, Zn, CaCo3 and Cr marginally falls within acceptable standard for drinking water quality maximum permitted limit. Consequently, NO3, SO4, Fe and CaCo3 in some parts of Jos metropolis fall outside acceptable standard of NSDWQMPL. Moreover, pH, E.C, TDS, Pb, NO2, NO3, Cl, F, Mn, Cr, As, Cu, Zn, showed that there is no significant relationship within the individual elements in regards to elevation (high and low in the study area whereas, SO4, Fe, Mg, Ca, CaCo 3 and CaCo3 showed that there is significant relationship in elevation (high and low among the individual sample elements. The study concludes that well water quality through chemical assessment in Jos metropolis is not fit for drinking.

    Full Text Available The present study was carried out on the cineritic interlayers from Petre?tii de Jos (closed quarry from Indolului Valley, in order to present their detailed mineralogical-petrographical features. Previous work already noticed the similarity of this tuff level with Dej Tuff Complex in other areas. The studied outcrop consists of a compact volcanic tuff interlayered with marls and tuffaceous clays. The analytical investigations: chemical analyses, X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy and electron microscopy reveal the nature of the diagenetic transformations dominated by zeolitization. Besides clinoptilolite, which is the typical zeolite for Dej Tuff from the Transylvanian Depression, our investigation evidenced also the presence of phillipsite. The process was stepwise: during the primary, syngenetic stage K-clinoptilolite formed, while during the late epigenetic stage Ca-phillipsite crystallized; on behalf of the latter one, Ca-clinoptilolite was also generated. It is worth to mention that the highest amounts of zeolites are to be found in the basal horizon, while this amount decreases in the interlayers associated with the marly-clayey levels. From genetic point of view, the lower horizon in the outcrop represents a primary fall-out tuff. The thin interlayers within the upper horizons are resedimented tuffs. The tuff from Petre?tii de Jos represents a cheap raw material located in the neighborhood of the industrial area of Turda town. For using it, only a more detailed research and the removal of the vegetal and soil layer on the top would be necessary.

    Full Text Available En 1922 José Vasconcelos hace un viaje a América del Sur e invita en Chile a Lucila Godoy Alcayaga, que llegará a conocerse como Gabriela Mistral, para que apoye su movimiento de reforma educacional. Su estancia en México de 1922 a 1924 dejará profunda huella en ambos. Mucho más tarde ella seguirá la huella del gran mexicano con preocupación y afecto. Este trabajo pretende revivir ese momento privilegiado de encuentro entre un mexicano y una chilena en el plano pedagógico al servicio de un movimiento de reforma como no se ha visto otro. Con la mirada puesta en los jóvenes pedagogos de hoy, que conocen poco de esta herencia, es un aporte al estudio decantado y sin la pasión del momento histórico vivido de José Vasconcelos y de Gabriela Mistral en una de sus dimensiones más notables: la pedagogía.

Its self-consciousness is based on both the uncertainty and insecurity produced by the totally conflicting and unstable nature of his word, whose materiality surfaces through the promise of its appearance or the risk of its disappearance. He views poetry not so much as a perfectly polished architecture but as a site for the continual production of cells and seeds of meaning.José Ángel Valente es autor de una de las escrituras más autoconscientes de la literatura española contemporánea, autoconciencia basada en la incertidumbre y la inseguridad derivadas del lugar absolutamente conflictivo e inestable que ocupa la palabra, cuya materialidad adquiere forma en la promesa de su emergencia o en el riesgo de su desaparición, una escritura, en definitiva, entendida no tanto como una arquitectura perfectamente acabada sino como un escenario de producción incesante de células y semillas de sentido.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available La obra proyectada y construida por Juan O’Gorman a lo largo de su vida traza un recorrido largo y sincopado entre formas de entender la arquitectura totalmente antagónicas. Su primera etapa de radical racionalismo desarrolla, según procedimientos estrictamente técnicos, un lenguaje revolucionario basado en la austeridad y la precisión. A pesar de ello muchas de sus obras destacan por la plasticidad de sus composiciones volumétricas, la riqueza espacial o, incluso, por la creación de atmósferas oníricas. Los primeros años de frenética actividad dan paso a un periodo de voluntario alejamiento de la práctica profesional de la arquitectura: ni una sola obra, ni un solo proyecto durante cerca de 15 años. Tan solo su actividad docente le mantiene en contacto con el mundo de la arquitectura. Cuando Juan O’Gorman vuelve a ejercer como arquitecto, lo hace construyendo algunos de los iconos del movimiento de integración plástica de México: la biblioteca central de la UNAM y su casa en San Jerónimo. A pesar de las enormes diferencias, o más bien oposiciones, entre unos momentos y otros, puede identificarse una invariante clara como señal de identidad personal: una velada voluntad de no ser arquitecto

    BACKGROUND Female Sex Workers (FSWs) are key reservoirs of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) from which transmission to the general population fuels epidemics. STIs amplify HIV infectiousness and susceptibility. We determined the status of HIV and STIs among brothel-based FSWs in Jos as part of an ongoing prevention intervention. METHOD Between January and May 2012, consenting consecutive brothel-based FSWs were recruited from previously designated brothels across Jos. HIV counseling and testing as well as screening for gonorrhoea, syphilis, trichomonasis, candidasis and Bacteria vaginosis (BV) were performed. Positive cases were provided free treatment and follow-up at Solat Women Hospital, Jos. Ethical clearance was obtained from Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) ethical committee. RESULT Two hundred FSWs aged 27.6 ± 4.6 years (range 15–55 years) were recruited and of these, 47 (23.5%) were HIV Positive, 20 (10.0%) had syphilis, 9 (4.5%) had Neisseria gonorrhea, 3 (1.5%) had Trichomonas vaginalis and 86 (43.0%) had BV. The association between HIV and bacterial vaginosis was statistically significant (OR of 2.2, 95% CI of 1.1–4.2, P-value=0.02). In comparison to similar prevalence in 2006, the current findings represent 51.5% decline in HIV prevalence, 40.8% decline for syphilis and over 83.3% decline in prevalence for Trichomonas vaginalis. There was no significant change in the prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoea and BV. CONCLUSION The prevalence of HIV and STIs among brothel-based FSWs in Jos remain unacceptably high, although, there is a declining trend. A comprehensive HIV prevention program targeting these women is required to block transmission to the general population. PMID:25335372

  11. Norma y uso: las ideas educativas en Juan de Robles / Etymology and use: The educational ideas of Juan de Robles

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available Resumen: Juan de Robles es uno de los más brillantes humanistas de nuestro Siglo de Oro, entre cuyas obras destaca El culto sevillano (1631. En este trabajo se analizan sus ideas educativas, centradas en la relación entre la ortografía y el aprendizaje de la escritura. Entre las ideas pedagógicas de Juan de Robles es muy relevante el rechazo vehemente de la ortografía fonética, entre otros motivos, porque no favorecía el aprendizaje de la lectura y de la escritura; en consecuencia, censura la creación de nuevas letras y de un nuevo orden para el alfabeto español. Los ortógrafos defensores de la ortografía fonética en el siglo XVII argumentaban que la nueva escritura permitiría a los niños aprender a leer y a escribir con más rapidez y facilidad; así como que la creación de nuevas letras y el establecimiento de un nuevo orden del alfabeto facilitarían su enseñanza. Frente a estas pretensiones, Juan de Robles defendió el alfabeto tradicional y la ortografía etimológica de origen latino porque eran los instrumentos adecuados para la alfabetización en nuestra lengua. También critica los colegios jesuitas y la Ratio Studiorum; las principales discrepancias entre la pedagogía de la Compañía de Jesús y las ideas educativas de Juan de Robles podrían concretarse en la primacía del español sobre el latín, y en el uso de cuentos y refranes populares para la educación en El culto sevillano. En conclusión, con la obra de Juan de Robles se incorpora definitivamente el argumento pedagógico que relaciona la ortografía y la gramática españolas con el aprendizaje de la lectura y de la escritura a la polémica sobre la ortografía española del Siglo de Oro, en defensa de la ortografía etimológica frente a las pretensiones de imponer una ortografía fonética en el primer tercio del siglo XVII. Abstract: Juan de Robles is considered one of the main humanists in the Spanish Golden Century. The most important of his works is El culto sevillano (1631. This paper focuses on the educational ideals in Robles´s works and the relationships between spelling and teaching of reading. By examining Robles´s pedagogical references, one prominent idea is emphasized: teaching of reading aren´t encouraged by phonetic spelling. Consequently, new letters of the Spanish alphabet and new alphabetical order have been rejected. The grammarians who defended phonetic spelling assert the new letters help Spanish children to learn to read faster and better than the traditional literacy. Letter names and alphabetical order are also changed to facilitate literacy learning. In contrast, traditional alphabet and etymological spelling are reclaimed by Juan de Robles for teaching reading and writing, because the phonetic spelling had slowed down the learning of literacy. Robles also criticizes Jesuit schools and Ratio Studiorum. The primacy of Spanish over Latin and the use of tales and proverbs for education are the major discrepancies between Robles and Jesuit pedagogy. The results of this paper show that pedagogic arguments that link Spanish grammar and spelling with teaching of reading and writing in the Spanish Golden Century are incorporated into the controversy over Spanish orthography reform also to defend traditional spelling around the first third of the seventeenth century.

    1976-01-01

    Ground water in the San Juan, Puerto Rico, area has played a declining role in water supply since the completion of the Lofza reservoir project in the early 1950's. Ground-water potential is limited because of the small size of the aquifers and susceptibility to seawater intrusion. Of the 30 million gallons per day about half is being used. Two water-bearing zones are present: an artesian aquifer, composed of the San Sebastian Formation and the lower Cibao Formation that yields an average of 244 gallons per minute to wells; and, a water-table aquifer composed of the upper Cibao Formation and the Aguada and Aymamon Limestones that yields an average of 515 gallons per minute to wells. Ground water is less mineralized inland and in the artesian aquifer. Mean concentrations of dissolved solids are 363 milligrams per liter for the artesian aquifer and 525 milligrams per liter for the water-table aquifer. (Woodard-USGS)

De ahí que resulte tan relevante su encuentro con la poesía mística española, en la medida en que el místico es un exiliado de Dios (Citas y Comentarios, 1982, y con la poesía sefardí (Dibaxu, 1994, «como si la soledad extrema del exilio me empujara a buscar raíces en la lengua, las más profundas y exiliadas de la lengua».ABSTRACT: In the life of the Argentine poet Juan Gelman (1930, the traumatic experience of exile informs not only an important part of his production, the one that falls between 1975 and 1988, but also, and fundamentaly, it establishes the displacement to areas of significance in which language is also «the rejected», the «empty-passion», «the sign of an absence that does not finish writing itself», in his own words. From this, one discovers the importance of his encounter with Spanish mystical poetry, to the extent that the mystic is estranged from God (Citations and Comentaries, 1982 and with Sephardic poetry (Dibaxu, 1994, «as if the extreme solitude of exile compelled me to search for roots in language, the deepest and most estranged from language».

Martí resume una visión inicial de nuestra América en la figura lítica de Chacmool cuando después de ser expropiada por el gobierno yucateco, el Apóstol cubano la admira en la ciudad de Mérida y expresa que es la síntesis de las culturas americanas. Aspecto poco estudiado en la obra de Martí es este acercamiento etnográfico a la realidad maya de Yucatán y Guatemala.   This paper aims at presenting and examining the change of perception José Martí underwent in relation to the role of the native peoples of America between 1875 and 1878, the years he lived in Mexico and Guatemala, during which he spent a large amount of time in Yucatan, where he was able to get to know the Mayan culture and its people first hand. Martí summarized his initial vision of our America in the lithic figure of Chacmool, which he was able to admire in the city of Merida, after it had been expropriated by the government of Yucatan. The Cuban apostle described this as a synthesis of American cultures. This ethnographic insight into the Mayan reality in Yucatan and Guatemala represents a scarcely explored aspect of Martí's work.

    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.

    Full Text Available Don Juan is a myth about a seducer, a man with many love adventures, a womens heat conqueror, and many other predicates. Don Juan as a myth is well-known world wide over, appearing in about 50 writings such as novels, plays, operas. But a French writer Eric-Emannuel Schmitt proposes a new figure of Don Juan in his play La Nuit de Valognes (Night in Valognes: the seducer is judged by five victims and convicted to marry one of his victims in order to stop his adventures. Surprisingly, Don Juan accepts this verdict without conditions. This sudden change becomes the theme of the play: the demythification of Don Juan. A flash back scene shows the beginning of this change and the interpretations that might arise from here. One possible interpretation is proposed and discussed in this paper: Don Juan found the way to a purer love, which is the union with God, and decides to begin his journey. This play can thus be categorised as a sufi text.

  7. La autobiografía juvenil de José Cadalso

    2002-12-01

    Full Text Available The brief autobiography written by José Cadalso in 1773, unknown until its discovery in 1967, has driven to some interpretations in many different and contradictory ways. This work has a great importance in order to describe Cadalso's personality, and it presuposes also an unique testimonial on the Spanish autobiographical literature of the eigteenth century. This paper aims at making a critical revision of the different readings included in that little work and try to study not only its style and structure, but also its selection of the biographical information found in the memoirs and its consecuent development. The conclusion is that Cadalso's work is an early autobiography in a modern sense, introspective and full OS moral and psychological preoccupations. This autobiography takes a distance from the rest of Spanish modern autobiographies in the fact of being a work written in Cadalso's young years, in the middle of incertitudes to the future and not with the intention of making an overview of his past life.La breve autobiografía de José Cadalso, escrita en 1773 y desconocida hasta su descubrimiento en 1967, ha dado lugar a interpretaciones muy diversas y contradictorias. Es una obra que posee un gran valor para caracterizar la personalidad de Cadalso y también supone un testimonio único dentro de la literatura autobiográfica en la España del siglo XVIII. En el artículo se efectúa una revisión crítica de las distintas opiniones vertidas sobre este opúsculo, se estudia su estilo, su estructura, la selección del material biográfico incluido en estos recuerdos y su desarrollo. La conclusión de este estudio caracteriza la obra de Cadalso como una precoz autobiografía de estilo moderno, introspectiva y dominada por inquietudes morales y psicológicas, que se distingue de todas las otras autobiografías modernas españolas por su condición de escritor juvenil, presidido por la incertidumbre ante el futuro antes que por el balance de la vida pasada.

    Full Text Available Semblanza del escritor y político cubano José Martí (1853-1895, con especial atención a la vigencia de su pensamiento ético, base de su permanente actualidad. Martí fue el organizador y líder de la última guerra americana contra el colonialismo europeo clásico, pero el sentido profundo que dio a esa lucha la convirtió en una verdadera guerra de liberación nacional: el primer movimiento concreto contra el imperialismo. Entre los rasgos más originales del pensamiento martiano están: la proclamación de la igualdad de razas; la búsqueda de la superación de las diferencias de clase mediante el equilibrio de las fuerzas sociales; la reivindicación de la solidaridad hacia los humildes como un deber; la predicación de una “guerra sin odios”, que debía ser obra del pueblo y no de líderes; la comprensión y definición de Nuestra América; la insistencia en la necesidad de una descolonización cultural latinoamericana; y el antiimperialismo.   This paper is a sketch of the Cuban writer and politician José Martí (1853-1895, with special attention to the validity of his ethical thinking, which is the basis of his permanent relevance. Martí was the organizer and leader of the last American war against European colonialism, but the deep commitment he made to that struggle turned it into a war of national liberation, the first concrete movement against imperialism. Among the most original features of Martí’s thought are the proclamation of the equality of races; the search for overcoming class differences through the balance of social forces; solidarity with the poor being considered a duty; the preaching of a “war without hates” that must be the work of the people, its leaders; the comprehension and definition of Our America; the insistence on the need, throughout Latin America, of cultural decolonization; and an anti-imperialistic stance.

Dans son travail, il soutient que le Parti Communiste et plus généralement toutes les forces sociales organisées du pays furent utilisés de façon très habile par le parti au pouvoir afin de légitimer un nouveau régime « bourgeois » qui s’est toujours présenté comme « socialiste ». Les idées politiques de Revueltas ne sont aujourd’hui connues que par une poignée de lecteurs fidèles alors même qu’elles fournissent un cadre critique indispensable pour comprendre la re-définition idéologique du Mexique aujourd’hui.Jose Revueltas was one of the first Mexican intellectuals to analyze the ideological creation of 1910 post-revolutionary Mexico. He argues that the Communist Party and in general the organized social forces of the country were masterfully used by the party in power to legitimize a new "bourgeois" regime which always posed as a "socialist" one. His ideas are only known today by a handful of loyal readers, even though they provide an indispensable critical framework for the understanding of today’s new ideological re-definition of Mexico.José Revueltas fue uno de los primeros intelectuales mexicanos en analizar la creación ideológica de México tras la Revolución de 1910.

Las ideas políticas de Revueltas son conocidas hoy tan sólo por sus lectores más devotos ; sin embargo éstas proveen un marco crítico indispensable para un análisis contemporáneo de la nueva redefinición ideológica de México.

Desde esta perspectiva se discute el ensayo "fundacional" de Martí, "Nuestra América". Dejando de un lado las lecturas patrióticas acostumbradas, el artículo señala la violencia latente y casi-totalitaria del discurso de Martí, su Realpolitik, su voluntarismo utópico, virajes y contradicciones bipolares, imaginación cautivante pero vacua, solución mítico-metafórica del problema de la identidad, todo lo cual problematiza la misión del ensayo. "Nuestra América" emerge como uno de los textos paradigmáticos de la actitud romántica, básicamente conservadora y antimoderna, que el pensamiento hispanoamericano adopta hacia finales del siglo XIX, y que encuentra su figura completa en el macondismoThis article focuses on the intellectual transcendence and heritage of José Martí (1853-1895 within the contexts of the stymied modernization of Spanish America in the 20th century and within its diverse conceptualizations and justifications (cultural identity concerns as reflected in magic realism and in macondismo-stemming from García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, 1967-, Martí's failed prophecies, and diverse postmodern tenets. Martí's "foundational" essay "Nuestra América" (Our America is discussed from this perspective. Skirting the usual patriotic readings, the article points out the latent violence and quasi-totalitarian aspects of Martí's discourse, his Realpolitik, his utopian voluntarism, bipolar shifts and contradictions, stirring yet vacuous imagination, a mythic-metaphoric solution to the identity conundrum, undercutting his essay's purported mission. "Nuestra America" emerges as one of the paradigmatic text of the romantic, basically conservative and antimodern, stance that Spanish American thought adopted towards the end of the 19th century, stance that reached its full figure in macondism

    Full Text Available Este ensayo discute la temporalidad en la narrativa de Juan Rulfo a través de los recursos que utiliza para exponer las tramas de sus personajes. La temporalidad del fantasma Rulfiano es determinante en los enigmas que devienen del campo simbólico en el que se desarrolla la obra. Estos personajes plantean fronteras móviles en su actuación pues la muerte les da un carácter ilimitado de acción perdiendo la secuencia histórica del presente-pasado-futuro. Asimismo se plantean algunas relaciones hipotéticas entre el autor y su obra señalando la polisemia resultante del uso de la metáfora. La estructura de la obra y la suspensión de las tramas hacen del lector un co-autor. A través del ensueño Rulfo inventa una manera de leer y escribir la muerte a través de su fantasmagoría.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Malcolm K. Read

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available In the immediate aftermath of 1968, a number of works on Marxist literary theory appeared that were destined to command the attention not only of writers who were re- cognizably Marxist or Marxian but of others who boasted little in the way of allegiance to the Marxist tradition, however broadly defined. Two such works were Terry Eagletons Criticism and Ideology (1976 and Fredric Jamesons The Political Unconscious (1981. While deeply and confessedly indebted to Louis Althusser for kick-starting their careers, inspirationally speaking, both Eagleton and Jameson were subsequently to reveal an ambiguous, even troubled relation to the French Marxist: Eagleton, through a series of texts that, their unquestionable distinction notwithstanding, run hot and cold in their commitment to Althusserianism; Jameson, through a brand of Hegelianizing Marxism that finally proved unable to take on board the full complexity of the Althusserian legacy. Preceding both these scholars chronologically, and bearing comparison with them in terms of intellectual range, ambition, and productivity, was Juan Carlos Rodrguez, whose Teora e historia de la produccin ideolgica appeared in 1974. Except that there the similarities end, for whereas Eagleton and Jameson were destined to achieve star status within their profession, a rather different career trajectory awaited Rodrguez.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wolfgang Bongers

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Este trabajo desarrollará la idea de que la escritura crítica, metaficcional y autorreferente de Juan Emar -desde las "Notas de Arte" (1924-1927 hasta el proyecto monumental de Umbral (1940-1964- puede comprenderse, por un lado, como espacio de resonancia de una estructura cinemática de percepción que se perfila como fundamental experiencia de vida durante la primera mitad del siglo XX. 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. Estos polos tensionan la escritura de Emar en el nivel referencial, reflexivo, y estético-formal.

It follows, then, that the study of Limantour and his economic thinking seeks to explain the transformation process to which the Mexican liberal state was subjected in thelast decade of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th. The study is divided into two sections, the first of which explores the general characteristics of the liberal state and its transfor- mations from the 1850s through to the 1900s. The second analyses the spheres of the Mexican economy that constituted the main focuses of Limantour’s interventions and regulation.

    Full Text Available Aware of television’s high level of persuasion and impact, politicians have progressively adapted their messages to the guidelines of the audiovisual media in order to strongly persuade TV viewers, which are seen as potential voters. Currently, the communication, marketing and telegenicity teams of most political parties do not only train their politicians to effectively use verbal communication, but they also try to reinforce their non-verbal communications skills, because they understand that a really effective message is only created through the correct combination of both dimensions. This article presents an in-depth study of the nonverbal communication displayed by the Prime Minister of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, during the first quarter of 2010 when a political topic predominated in the agenda: the financial crisis. Through content analysis, and a self-developed methodology, the study aims to decipher the strategic meaning of this political leader’s kinesic behaviour in the second edition of Telediario, the news programme broadcast by Spain’s Public TV Network (Televisión Española, aka, TVE.

    San José State University's Geology Department and Program in Science Education piloted their ESSEA program in spring 2003. The initial offering, the High School Course, drew teachers from California and New York. Formative feedback and summative evaluations from participants suggested that the curriculum could be modified to serve its target audience more effectively. Dialog with other ESSEA P.I.s confirmed that many of these suggestions were aligned to the needs of teachers in other states. In summer 2003 SJSU's ESSEA team revised the High School Course in response to these discussions. The revised course contains three 4-week cycles (instead of four 3-week cycles), a slight decrease in group activities and increase in individual assignments, and required readings on "Netiquette." This revised curriculum was shared with four other ESSEA institutions before the start of classes in fall 2003. Future plans include the substitution of one of the existing 4-week cycles with another that focuses on the cosmosphere, and how the Earth spheres may affect and/or respond to more distant influences. Doing so would further benefit teachers by allowing the ESSEA course to satisfy subject matter competency in the geosciences, a requirement of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and counterpart authorities in other states.

    Full Text Available Mais conhecido cineasta brasileiro de horror, José Mojica Marins tem uma obra vasta, na qual transitou por outros gêneros fílmicos, como o western e o sexo explícito. Ele trabalhou dentro de modos de produção distintos, usou diversas tecnologias e lidou com mudanças profundas no círculo de colaboradores. Tudo isso teve como consequência certa heterogeneidade temática, visual e sonora nos filmes que ele dirigiu, tornando mais difícil a tarefa de rastrear uma assinatura estilística em sua obra. Apesar disso, é possível afirmar que seus filmes têm um estilo próprio. Este ensaio procura identificar padrões recorrentes de forma e conteúdo na obra de Mojica, tentando explicá-los através do exame dos contextos socioculturais, tecnológicos, econômicos e políticos que afetaram o trabalho e a vida pessoal do cineasta.

    Home mechanical ventilation is currently expanding in Chile, but its application along the country is hindered by financial and geographical reasons. In 2006 the San José Hospital in Santiago de Chile developed a non-invasive ventilation (NIV) center as a strategy to overcome the limitations of ventilator availability from public resources. Since then, this center provides intermittent diurnal sessions of NIV to patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure. In 2013, a collaboratory work between the Chilean doctors, the German Interdisciplinary Society of Home Mechanical Ventilation (DIGAB = Deutsche Interdisziplinäre Gesellschaft für Außerklinische Beatmung) and the German non-invasive (NIV) home care provider "Heinen und Löwenstein" organized a donation of 100 second-hand ventilators (BiPAP Synchrony; Respironics, USA) including masks and tubing systems, which were provided by Heinen und Löwenstein. The ventilator devices arrived in Santiago in January 2014. Since then, the following initiatives have been launched: 1) the establishment of a domiciliary mechanical ventilation program independent of governmental founding, 2) NIV setting-titration, 3) renewal of ventilators at the hospital's intermittent NIV unit. Future goals are the establishment of a rehabilitation unit with concomitant NIV therapy and a clinical research program. Therefore, the German donation of ventilators and equipment has a reported impact on the development of NIV in Chile. PMID:25629262

    Meteorological factors influence dengue virus ecology by modulating vector mosquito population dynamics, viral replication, and transmission. Dynamic modeling techniques can be used to examine how interactions among meteorological variables, vectors and the dengue virus influence transmission. We developed a dengue fever simulation model by coupling a dynamic simulation model for Aedes aegypti, the primary mosquito vector for dengue, with a basic epidemiological Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Recovered (SEIR) model. Employing a Monte Carlo approach, we simulated dengue transmission during the period of 2010-2013 in San Juan, PR, where dengue fever is endemic. The results of 9600 simulations using varied model parameters were evaluated by statistical comparison (r2) with surveillance data of dengue cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To identify the most influential parameters associated with dengue virus transmission for each period the top 1% of best-fit model simulations were retained and compared. Using the top simulations, dengue cases were simulated well for 2010 (r2 = 0.90, p = 0.03), 2011 (r2 = 0.83, p = 0.05), and 2012 (r2 = 0.94, p = 0.01); however, simulations were weaker for 2013 (r2 = 0.25, p = 0.25) and the entire four-year period (r2 = 0.44, p = 0.002). Analysis of parameter values from retained simulations revealed that rain dependent container habitats were more prevalent in best-fitting simulations during the wetter 2010 and 2011 years, while human managed (i.e. manually filled) container habitats were more prevalent in best-fitting simulations during the drier 2012 and 2013 years. The simulations further indicate that rainfall strongly modulates the timing of dengue (e.g., epidemics occurred earlier during rainy years) while temperature modulates the annual number of dengue fever cases. Our results suggest that meteorological factors have a time-variable influence on dengue transmission relative to other important environmental and human factors. PMID:26275146

    The Cascadia Initiative (CI) is an amphibious array spanning the Juan de Fuca plate from formation at the ridge to the destruction of the slab in the mantle beneath western North America. This ambitions project has occupied over 300 onshore and offshore sites, providing an unprecedented opportunity to understand the dynamics of oceanic plates. The CI project is now in its fourth and final year of deployment. Here we present constraints on the structure of the Juan de Fuca plate and its interaction with western North America. We identify segmentation along the Cascadia subduction zone that can be traced back onto the Juan de Fuca plate prior to subduction. These results 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.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An isotopic and hydrochemical study on groundwater from Ullum-Zonda and Tulum Valleys, San Juan province, Argentina, has been performed. Recharge areas and the different water types feeding the basin groundwater were determined. Gross isotopic differences among the San Juan river, originated in the high Cordillera de los Andes (δ18O = -16 per mille), rainwater over the surrounding hills (δ18O = -7 per mille) and the more positive local precipitation favoured this characterization. Also 14C content of twelve groundwater samples are presented. The interpretation of these results is discussed. (author). 9 refs, 3 figs, 2 tabs

El AJF se encuentra ubicado frente a la costa central de Chile (33S), y est conformado por las islas Robinson Crusoe, Santa Clara y Alejandro Selkirk. Los resultados indican que los remolinos anticiclnicos superficiales y subsuperficiales que interactan con el AJF se forman principalmente en la zona de transicin costera entre 33 y 39S. Los ITEs se presentan en la regin del AJF con una frecuencia semianual, principalmente durante el perodo de otoo austral, y poseen una dbil expresin superficial respecto de los remolinos superficiales adyacentes, un lento desplazamiento (1,16-1,4 km d-1) con direccin noroeste y una estructura coherente por perodos ? 1 ao.

Abstract in english Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) results, combined with chlorophyll-? (Chl-?) and satellite altimetry information as well as information from oceanographic cruises were analyzed to identify interactions between intrathermocline eddies (ITEs) and the Juan Fernndez Archipelago (JFA), and discuss [...] their potential impact on surface Chl-? concentrations. The JFA is located off the coast of central Chile (33S), and is composed of three main islands: Robinson Crusoe (RC), Alejandro Selkirk (AS) and Santa Clara (SC). Results indicate that the surface and subsurface anticyclonic eddies that interact with the JFA are formed primarily within the coastal transition zone between 33 and 39S. ITEs are present within the JFA region with a semiannual frequency, mainly during the austral autumn, and have a weak surface expression in relation to the adjacent surface eddies, with a slow displacement (1.16 to 1.4 km d-1) in a northwest direction and a coherent structure for periods of ? 1 year. During the ITEs' interaction with RC-SC islands and an adjacent seamount, a slight (prominent) thermocline deflection of the upper limit (lower) was observed. The horizontal extent (~70-100 km) was greater than the internal Rossby deformation radius and the average vertical extent was ~400 m. The interaction between the weak surface expression of ITEs, identified with satellite altimetry, and the JFA persisted during autumn for nine weeks until reaching the winter period. Approximately one month after the beginning of the interaction between ITEs and the islands, increases in surface Chl-? associated with the eddy were observed, with values up to three times higher than adjacent oceanic waters.

    Full Text Available Background: Physicians who have the task of caring for the sick also need to be cared for when they take ill. Healthseeking habits of physicians have been found to be poor in most developed countries. Utilization of health services by physicians in developing countries is not known. We sought to describe the health seeking habits of physicians in Nigeria. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional survey was carried out among physicians at the Jos University Teaching Hospital, a tertiary referral health facility in North-central Nigeria. A pre-tested questionnaire was administered to physicians to get information on their self-reported health seeking habits. Results: Self prescription was practiced by 98.6% of the physicians, with antimalarials being the most prescribed drugs (62.5%. Only 46.9% consulted another physician when they take ill, although 78.2% felt they needed a family physician. Many (23.8% of respondents treated their family members when last sick. The major factors considered by the respondents in choosing the physician they consulted were the specialty of the physician consulted (42.2%; the physician being in the same unit with them (38.5%, and friendship (15.6%. Four (3.7% of the respondents would not consider any particular factor for choosing a physician if they have to. Conclusion: This study showed that a large proportion of physicians self-medicate and a few have family physicians. Guidelines need to be instituted to regulate self-prescribing among physicians in Nigeria. The role of family physicians in primary care needs to be emphasized.

    Full Text Available Antibacterial activity of ethanolic extract of Acalypha wilkesiana leaves growing in Vom, Jos, Plateau state, Nigeria was carried out to verify claims by the locals of its medicinal properties. We tested the extract for activity against Staphylococcus aureus (G+, Yersinia enterocolitica, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella aerogenes (G-. The extract exhibited activity against the organisms in varying degrees. In the agar diffusion test, Y. enterocolitica showed the highest zone of inhibition (18 mm at the highest concentration of extract tested (20 mg/mL while E. coli, S. aureus, S. typhi, P. aeruginosa and K. aerogenes showed zones of inhibition of 17, 16, 15, 14 and 16 mm respectively. At extract concentration of 2.5 mg/mL, Y. enterocolitica and P. aeruginosa did not show any zones of inhibition while E.coli, S. aureus, S. typhi, and K. aerogenes showed zones of inhibition of 7, 6, 6 and 7 mm respectively. Below extract concentration of 2.5 mg/mL, there was no zone of inhibition observed with any organism. The MIC of the extract against the organisms was 5 mg/mL except on S. aureus where the MIC was 2.5 mg/mL. The MBC of the extract was 10 mg/mL against Y. enterocolitica, S. typhi, P. aeruginosa and K. aerogenes, 5 mg/mL against E. coli and S. aureus. Preliminary phytochemical testing revealed the presence of tannins, steroids, flavonoids and cardiac glycosides while saponins, alkaloids and anthraquinones were not present. The result gives scientific backing to the use of the leaves by the local people in the treatment of conditions usually associated with the organisms tested.

Abstract in english I am exploring in this essay the relation in Argentinian poet Juan L. Ortiz's poetry, between the poetic experience and the zen philosophy of enlightenment or satori. Through the contemplation of the landscape in his everyday fatherland, Juan L. Ortiz reaches consciousness in which he perceives the [...] wonder of one being one with everything. Renouncement of one's self, attention to the smallest of things, acceptance of the void as basis of our existence, take him to see love as the only answer to recover harmony. Ortiz's poetry gives then the possibility to enter, through language, to that harmony he so aspires. An important axis in this essay is to present how Ortiz's language succeeds to configure within itself that experience, how he buildsup a language which he himself denominated "transparent", and how this language contains within itself the harmony of becoming.

En el presente trabajo, se definen algunas caractersticas hidroqumicas de este sistema hidrogrfico, vinculadas a las actividades mineras enunciadas. El desarrollo deltrabajo consisti en un muestreo sistemtico del agua del ro Castao para conocer particularmente los niveles de concentracin de metales pesados, como cadmio, cinc, cobre, cromo, plomo y aluminio, y determinar su incidencia en la composicin y calidad del agua.Tambin se determinaron en laboratorio y campo parmetros tales como: pH, conductividad elctrica y slidos disueltos en el agua. Los resultados obtenidos indican que algunos parmetros qumicos del agua de ro, estn vinculados a las variaciones de caudales provocadas por las diferentes estaciones del ao y por el rgimen de alimentacin nival del ro Castao. El agua de este sistema hidrogr fico no presenta sustancias txicas en niveles de contaminacin y algunos de los tenores ms altos de elementos pesados estaran relacionados con las reas de afloramientos mineralizados por donde drena el ro. Se concluye entonces, que la calidad de este recurso hdrico andino no ha sido afectada por la explotacin minera realizada. Abstract in english The province of San Juan, in arid centralwest Argentina, is irrigated by two fluvial systems: the Jachal and San Juan River basins. The Castao River is one of the two main tributaries to the latter. It crosses the Castao Viejo mining district, which was a producer of lead, zinc and copper. To inve [...] stigate the water quality and the possible hydrochemical variations given rise by the mining activity, a sampling net was devised along the river course for determining concentrations of calcium, magnesium, sodium, carbonates, bicarbonates, sulphates, cadmium, copper, chrome, lead, zinc, aluminium, pH, dissolved solids and electric conductivity. 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.

    Full Text Available Justificación y objetivo:La infección intrahospitalaria por varicela en adultos es infrecuente, a pesar de ser una enfermedad altamente contagiosa. Es reconocido que en adultos se presentan las tasas de letalidad más altas y por ello es importante analizar las características del presente brote y así determinar cuáles factores contribuyeron a que ocurriera, para recomendar acciones dirigidas a la prevención de un brote similar. Métodos: Se diseñó un estudio de casos y controles para identificar los factores asociados al brote por varicela en el hospital. La prueba de U de Mann-Whitney se utilizó para valorar diferencias entre casos y controles según edad, contacto entre pacientes, estancia hospitalaria y grupo de cama. El cálculo de los Odds Ratio ayudó a determinar la posible asociación entre las variables y la presentación de la enfermedad. Se recomendó la cuarentena del Servicio. Resultados:El primer caso de varicela ocurrió en febrero, al tercer día de su ingreso al hospital. Posteriormente, se presentaron 5 casos más. Al analizar las variables estudiadas, la curva epidémica y el período de incubación, la variable contacto entre los pacientes fue la más importante para mantener la existencia del brote p < 0,05; R = 25; [IC95%]=2,3 - 275,7. Conclusión:Se confirmó la transmisión persona-persona de la varicela como fuente principal de contagio en el hospital. Si bien la cuarentena permitió detener el brote, se deben tomar medidas más prácticas y menos costosas, que prevengan la aparición de un brote similar.

    Full Text Available Violence as the condition of possibility for literature is an idea outlined by Saer. It leads us to consider how the relation between the political and social dimension and the specific world of writing is configurated. If one thinks of his literature as from what he called a "morality of failure" in Don Quixote one could say, resuming Julio Premat, that his characters live a mourning situation where the moral universe, political and family affiliations are deeply cracked. There is a sense of loss that implies the incessant lurking of ghosts and the various ways of expurgating them in a struggle within the order of symbolic representation

  15. An Assessment Of Landscape Segments Suitable For Agriculture In Kerang Volcanic Area Of Jos Plateau Nigeria

    Sohotden Christopher Daniel

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Abstract This study was carried out to investigate the landscape segments suitable for agricultural purpose in a volcanic land catena of Kerang Area on the Jos Plateau. A reconnaissance survey of the study area was carried out and three different slope segments were identified a total of 41 surface soil samples were taken from the three segments using a stratified systematic sampling. These soils were then analyzed for the physical and chemical properties. The result of the analyses revealed that the organic matter total nitrogen soil PH and exchangeable Ca Mg decline down slope however potassium K and sodium Na increase down slope. Co-efficient of variation of the soil properties for the three different slope segments showed low variability for the upper slope crest and shoulder exception being that phosphorus 43.10 and potassium 41.10 exhibited moderate variability. At the middle slope the co-efficient of variation exhibited by soil properties is predominantly moderate exception being that sodium 75 varies at high proportion at this slope segment. At the lower slope majority of the soil properties exhibited low variability. On the other hand total nitrogen available phosphorous and potassium have values of co-efficient of variation 23.10 65.60 and 23.10 respectively. This indicates that available phosphorus exhibited high variability while total nitrogen and exchangeable potassium have intermediate variability. The between or over all co-efficient or variation for the soil properties are predominantly moderate for most variable except PHH2O 11.80 and PH Cad2 10.60 that have low variability and phosphorous 78 has high variability. Differences in the degree of variation of soil variables from one segment to another can be attributed to soil erosion as affected by slope nature of soil parent materials and soil management technique. The study also revealed that some of the properties determining soil fertility total Nitrogen Available Phosphorus organic matter soil PH and exchangeable cation decreased from the upper part to the lower part of the landscape with the exception of potassium K and sodium Na. Recommendations were put forward on how best to use the landscape of the study for agricultural production.

  16. Assessment of radiological hazards of tin mining and ore processing in Jos, Nigeria

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    On the Jos Plateau were found uncontrolled tailing heaps generated from Tin Mining Activities. To assess the associated radiological hazards, an abandoned tailing dump ground was investigated with the residents as the critical population. The mean activity concentrations of 40K, 226Ra and 232Th in the 60 analyzed soil samples were 1251.7±478.4, 3867.5±1282.7 and 8301.9±2862.6 Bqkg-1, respectively with a mean computed dose rate of 7.2±1.6 μGyh-1. An annual mean outdoor effective dose of 8.9±0.9mSvy-1 was estimated. Also the activity concentrations of 40K, 226Ra and 232Th in the 60 control soil samples were 447.0±68.0, 37.4±7.4 and 115.4±16.7 Bqkg-1, respectively with a mean dose rate of 0.11±0.01 μGyh-1. To account for the internal exposure, vegetables and root crops commonly grown and consumed in the area were assayed. Six varieties of vegetables and five varieties of root crops were analyzed. An internal annual mean effective dose of 148.98±8.14μSvy-1 was estimated. The verification of dose limit compliance for members of the public demands that: External Dose/Dose Limit + Intake (ingested)/ALI (ingestion) + Intake (inhaled)/ALI (inhalation) ≤ 1. Based on obtained data above, there is non-compliance with the dose limit, since the first term of the compliance formula is much greater than unity. There is therefore a need for an intervention to prevent radiation over exposure of the members of the public. The calculated cancer mortality risk for external and internal exposure scenarios for 226Ra and 232Th were (1.67±0.33) x 10-6(0.00017%) and (3.41±0.14) x 10-6(0.00034%), respectively. The 226Ra radionuclide contributed about 96.09% of the risk in the external scenario with only 3.09% from the 232Th while in the internal, the 226Ra contributed only 70.38%. The combined external and internal (ingestion) risk is (5.08±0.36) x 10-6/year. (author)

    This study was performed to measure the radionuclides in the tin mining soil mounds from the Jos Plateau, Nigeria and to evaluate the impact of radiation on the environment where the soils are used as building materials. Gamma spectrometry was employed via a NaI(Tl) detector to determine the activities of the radionuclides 40K, 238U and 232Th in ten (10) samples from points within a distance of 20 km along the mining trail. The results of measurements of natural radionuclide (238U, 232Th and 40K) in soil samples show that the concentrations of 238U, 232Th and 40K ranged between 1.51 - 4.98, BDL - 8.64 and 10.3 -35.2 Bq/kg with mean concentrations of 3.20 1.16, 1.31 2.75 and 25.60 8.89 Bq/kg, respectively. The external hazards ranged between 0.008 - 0.044 with mean value of 0.019 0.009 while the internal hazards ranged between 0.014 - 0.048 with mean value of 0.028 0.009. These hazard values are less than 1. The annual gonadal dose equivalent (AGDE) ranged between 10.28 - 55.87 Svy-1 with mean value of 24.22 12.16 Svy-1. The radium equivalent activities ranged from 3.07 - 16.23 Bq/kg with a mean value of 7.04 3.53 Bq/kg. The external absorbed dose rate ranged from 5.35- 18.76 Gyh-1 with a mean value of 12.95 4.26 Gyh-1. The internal absorbed dose rate ranged from 10.34 - 35.53 Gyh-1 with an average value of 24.87 8.13 nGyh-1. The external absorbed dose equivalent rate ranged from 0.007- 0.023 with a mean value of 0.016 . The internal absorbed dose equivalent rate ranged from 0.051 - 0.174 with an average value of 0.122 . All the calculated radiological indices fall within the recommended safe limits and world averages. The soil mounds, therefore, do not constitute environmental radiation risks and the soils could be used in construction. (author)

    Full Text Available Information on turkey production and disease is rare in Nigeria, possibly because turkeys are seldom raised commercially. Also, turkeys require intensive husbandry and health care after hatching, which backyard poultry producers hardly provided especially, when raised in a disease endemic environment. In an attempt to document the diseases militating against turkey production in Nigeria, clinical and necropsy records were reviewed from veterinary practices in Jos and the Central Diagnostic Laboratory of the National Veterinary Research Institute (NVRI, Vom, Nigeria between 2009 - 2014. A total of 306 turkeys from backyard flocks were presented to the Veterinary clinics between 2009-2014 with various health complaints by backyard flock owners. Viral (Pox and Newcastle disease and parasitic (Helminthosis, Coccidiosis and Ectoparasitism diseases were mostly diagnosed. During the same period, 42 samples comprising 25 carcasses and 17 cloacal swabs were submitted for post mortem examination, virus isolation and microbiological test. Colisepticaemia, colibacillosis, pullorum disease, airsacculitis and infectious sinusitis are the main diseases diagnosed at post-mortem examination and microbiological test, while none of the samples were positive for influenza by virus isolation. It was observed that turkey rearing was small-scaled and kept as backyard poultry in North-central Nigeria. It can therefore be concluded from this study that turkeys raised in north-central city of Jos are affected by diseases ranging from viral to bacterial and parasitic, which can adversely affect productivity. This can therefore be improved upon by controlling the diseases mostly affecting turkeys.

    Full Text Available Resumen: En 1905 José Vasconcelos escribe su Teoría dinámica del derecho, tesis de jurisprudencia aparentemente anodina y sin interés, desfasada de los escritos espiritualistas (1910-1929 por su positivismo y más aún del sistema (1929-1959 por su candidez. Y por lo tanto, es este escrito el que como ningún otro, permite percibir el fondo de un pensamiento único. Esta original discontinuidad basada en una intuición que dirige e impulsa la obra más allá de los símbolos y el lenguaje, nos invita a revalorar el vasconcelismo no como un pensamiento político o temperamental, sino como uno estrictamente filosófico. Abstract: In 1905 José Vasconcelos writes his Dynamic theory of civil law, jurisprudence thesis apparently anodyne and without any interest. Its simplicity is far from his later works on spiritualism from 1910 to 1929 and more so from the system covered from 1929 to 1959. Therefore, it is in his youth writing that we perceive a unique mind. This original discontinuity based on intuition directs and promotes his works beyond language, and invites us to reevaluate the Vasconcelos thought not as political or temperamental, but strictly philosophical.

    Full Text Available O lugar sem limites, romance publicado em 1966 pelo escritor chileno José Donoso, vem sendo objeto de inúmeras leituras, em geral, alegóricas. É mérito da crítica literária gay ter chamado a atenção para a possibilidade de uma leitura realista do romance, que leve a sério a condição de travesti do personagem central Manuela. Nessa linha, este ensaio recorre à idéia de abjeção para interpretar a maneira como o personagem reivindica positivamente o lugar marginal que lhe é assinalado. Nesse sentido, opõe-se a outras leituras, articuladas a partir da idéia de transgressão.The Place Without Limits, novel published in 1996 by the Chilean writer José Donoso, has come to be the object of countless readings, mostly allegoric. To gay literary critics, a realistic reading has become possible, which seriously reveals the main character Manuela's condition of being a transvestite. Following this line, the work turns to the idea of abjection to interpret the way in which the character vindicates positively the marginal place which has been assigned to him. In this sense, it is opposed to other readings, in terms of the idea of transgression.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo examina los orígenes de la narrativa fantástica colombiana, a partir de una relectura de la novela Una triste aventura de 14 sabios, del escritor José Félix Fuenmayor. Aquí expongo cómo la emergencia y consolidación de lo fantástico responde a una experiencia paradójica con la modernidad. De esta forma, muestro cómo el trabajo literario fantástico de Fuenmayor fue impactado no solo por una condición histórica conflictiva, sino también por la incorporación de diversos artefactos culturales a su estética literaria. This essay examines the origins of the fantastic literature in Colombia by analyzing José Félix Fuenmayor novel, Una triste aventura de 14 sabios. I argue that the emergence and consolidation of the fantastic have their origins in a paradoxical experience with modernity. I explore how Fuenmayor’s literary creation was not only impacted by a historically conflicting condition produced by the rise of modern subjectivity, but also by the incorporation of different cultural artifacts into his literary aesthetics.

  2. 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.

    Full Text Available A principios del siglo XX en gran parte de América Latina se comenzaron a suceder importantes fenómenos asociados a la incipiente urbanización e industrialización en los modos de vivir y trabajar, y junto a ellas se desataron crisis sociales, políticas y económicas que no terminaban de controlarse cuando resurgían nuevamente. El nacionalismo y la educación emergieron como herramientas capaces de hacerles frente y en todo el continente se levantaron idearios que intentaron comprenderles, articularles y proyectarles. John Dewey les abordó desde Estados Unidos, Pedro Henríquez Ureña desde República Dominicana, México y Argentina, José Carlos Mariátegui hizo lo propio en Perú y José Vasconcelos desde México. A continuación se presentará el acercamiento que tuvo Vasconcelos a las nociones educación y nación, elaborado a partir de un proceso sistemático de análisis de contenido de su obra y que permite sopesar, como lo hicieron en su tiempo los jóvenes de Perú, Panamá y Colombia, a este intelectual como uno de los grandes maestros de la juventud de América.

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available La historia de las elites decimonónicas ha sido contada como la historia de un Olimpo tan elevado e inalcanzable como serio. Juan Rafael Allende logró en el mismo siglo XIX crear un mundo paralelo si no alternativo que derribó tanta sospechosa sublimidad. El gran autor satírico se hizo cargo del habla histórica de la plebe chilena que provenía en alguna medida de la Picaresca española de los siglos XVI y XVII con su anticlericalismo y su anticapitalismo visceral y carnavalesco. Prolongando este mundo al siglo XIX Allende lo convirtió en una dinamita contra la gravedad del Estado y del Mercado `en forma'. En particular, fueron atacados insignes representantes de la burguesía chilena como Eduardo Matte, Manuel José Irarrázaval, Agustín Edwards, Julio Zegers o Federico Varela. Ellos habían creado una nueva religión del dinero que Allende se apresuró a denunciar como una burda parodia del Dios cristiano. Había nacido en el país un nuevo credo, el "credo de los salitreros". El origen del pensamiento satírico de Allende tiene larguísimas raíces de las que no podemos obviar, además de la mencionada Picaresca, la tradición de la España hispano-árabe, que se rió de ricos y magnates en el mejor espíritu del Libro del Buen Amor y sus antecedentes musulmanesThe history of Chile's 19th-century elites has been narrated as an Olympian story: lofty, unreachable and grave. During the same century, writer Juan Rafael Allende managed to create a parallel, if not alternative world which demolished such suspect sublimity. The great satiric author appropriated Chile´s historic plebeian speech, somehow descended from the Spanish picaresque of the 16th and 17th centuries, adopting its visceral and carnival-like anti-clericalism and anti-capitalism. Projecting this mode into the 19th century, Allende turned it into a weapon to be used against the gravitas of the formal Market and State. In particular, his attacks were leveled against renowned members of the Chilean bourgeoisie, such as Eduardo Matte, Manuel José Irarrázaval, Agustín Edwards, Julio Zegers or Federico Varela. They had framed a new wealth-centered religion which Allende hastened to denounce as a crass parody of the Christian God. The country had engendered a new creed, the "nitrate-owners creed". The roots of Allende's satirical thought sank deeply into the past, encompassing not only the Spanish Picaresque but also the ancient tradition of Arabic Spain, which made fun of wealthy men and magnates in the best spirit of the Libro del Buen Amor and its Islamic antecedents

    Fowl pox is a viral disease of domestic and wild birds. The large size of the genome makes it a useful vector for recombinant DNA technology. Although the disease has been described in both commercial and indigenous chickens in Nigeria, data are limited on seroprevalence in free range chickens. Such data are, however, important in the design and implementation of fowl pox virus vector vaccine. We surveyed current antibody status to fowl pox virus in free range chickens by testing 229 sera collected from 10 villages in Jos North and Jos South LGA of Plateau State Nigeria. Sera were analyzed by AGID against standard fowl pox antigen. Fifty-two of the 229 (23%) tested sera were positive for fowl pox virus antibody, and the log titre in all positive specimen was >2. Thirty (21%) and twenty-two (27%) of the samples from Jos South and Jos North, respectively, tested positive. This was, however, not statistically significant (P = 0.30). Generally the study showed a significant level of antibody to fowl pox virus in the study area. This observation may hinder effective use of fowl pox vectored viral vaccine. Fowl pox control is recommended to reduce natural burden of the disease. PMID:23762578

A fin de aclarar el tema se realizó el relevamiento de un sector del Valle de Iglesia. En este artículo se presentan los resultados de ese estudio, junto con una revisión y discusión de los antecedentes y de algunas ideas vinculadas con el tema. Fundamentalmente, se verifica la presencia del Qhapaq Ñan en la parte baja del sector analizado, se refuta la propuesta de que el trazado longitudinal principal se habría extendido por la parte alta del sector precordillerano y se sostiene que el tramo relevado fue recorrido por Debenedetti a principios del siglo XX, aunque sin advertir que se trataba del camino incaico.   Palabras clave: Inca; Camino del Inca; Dominación incaica; Collasuyo; San Juan   Abstract The Inka road system in the longitudinal valleys of San Juan province, in the southeastern end of Tawantinsuyu, has been subject of several considerations during the last century. However, no specific studies have been undertaken to verify its existence, which recently has been even denied. To clarify the issue we surveyed a section of Iglesia Valley. This article presents the results of that study, along with a review and discussion of the background and of some ideas related to the topic. Basically, the presence of the Qhapaq Ñan at the bottom of the surveyed sector is verified, and the suggestion that the main inka longitudinal route would have extended over the top of the precordilleran mountain region is refused. Also, it is argued that the analyzed stretch was traveled by Debenedetti in the beginnings of the twentieth century, but without realizing that it was the Inka road.   Keywords: Inka; Inka Road; Inka Domination; Collasuyu; San Juan

His works as translator or versionador were collected, after his decease, in the volume Cuaderno de versiones. This paper exposes Valente’s translating idea in relationship with any key notions in his aesthetic thought and with his own works. Also, it analyzes a group of examples of his labour as translator comparing these texts with their original version. That essay shows how translating supposes a new writing creative process. Taking this into consideration, we propose to give the same relevance to his production as a writer and as a translator, and to consider this last one as literary creation.José Ángel Valente, poeta bilingüe y traductor profesional en diferentes instituciones internacionales, frecuentó además de la creación poética y prosística la reescritura de textos ajenos procedentes de lenguas extranjeras.

Le narrateur du récit que nous publions ici assimile ce rite à l’histoire de Juan Oso (Jean de l’Ours très connue dans le monde andin. L’importance de l’ours dans cette culture des hautes terres amazoniennes est fondamentale. En quechua local, l’ours s’appelle “puma” et partage avec le puma de la forêt les caractéristiques de puissance effrayante et de pouvoirs surnaturels. Le fils de l’ours, Juan, évoque les relations ambiguës liant les “chrétiens” des hautes terres d’Amazonas et les “sauvages” de la forêt. Una de las fiestas más importantes de la comunidad de La Jalca, Provincia de Chachapoyas, Amazonas, es la de San Pedro en la que se representa un baile del oso muy semejante al baile de los ukukus del sur peruano.

One of the most important feasts of the community of La Jalca, Province of Amazonas, is that of Saint Peter in which a bear dance similar to the southern Peruvian dance of the ukukus is performed. In the story published here, the narrator assimilates this rite with the tale of Juan Oso, another story which is well known throughout the Andes. The importance of bears in Amazonas highland culture is fundamental. In local Quechua, bears are known as pumas and they share the fearful strength and superhuman powers which characterize jungle ‘pumas’. The bear’s son, Juan, calls to mind the ambiguous relations linking the “Christians” of the highlands of Amazonas and the “savages” of the jungles.

    A common mode of speciation in oceanic islands is by anagenesis, wherein an immigrant arrives and through time transforms by mutation, recombination, and drift into a morphologically and genetically distinct species, with the new species accumulating a high level of genetic diversity. We investigate speciation in Drimys confertifolia, endemic to the two major islands of the Juan Fernndez Archipelago, Chile, to determine genetic consequences of anagenesis, to examine relationships among popul...

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

    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.

  6. Juan de la Cueva y su Tragedia de Los siete Infantes de Lara

    Froldi, Rinaldo

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper analyses tragedy at the end of the 16th century, within the framework of Spanish plays, and specially the Tragedia de los siete Infantes de Lara by Juan de la Cueva. The historic legend, recounted in chronicles and ballads, is taken up in this play just at the end: the initial part is only taken in the accounts of some of the characters. The structure of the tragedy is rather original: Juan de la Cueva goes through successive pictures which refer to the most dramatically evocative episodes. Noteworthy is the poets interest in the value of words and his search for a formal and learned style, not lacking occasionally of some rhetorical abuses. This paper highlights the characteristics of Cuevas humanistic style as well as the contradictory points of view in the critical history of this work, which probably raised admiratio but also raised the moral of the audience, as was actually the poets intention.Este artculo examina, en el marco de la literatura teatral espaola, la tragedia de finales del siglo XVI y, en particular, la Tragedia de los siete Infantes de Lara, de Juan de la Cueva. La histrica leyenda, narrada en las crnicas y en los romances, es asumida en el teatro solo en su parte final: la parte inicial se confa a las narraciones de algunos personajes. La estructura de la tragedia es original: Juan de la Cueva procede a travs de cuadros sucesivos que se refieren a los episodios ms dramticamente sugerentes. Es destacable el inters del poeta por el valor de la palabra y por la bsqueda formal y culta, no sin algunos abusos retricos. El ensayo pone de relieve las caractersticas del gusto humanstico que inspira a Cueva, as como los contradictorios puntos de vista en la historia crtica de esta composicin, que posiblemente tuvo el mrito de levantar admiratio, pero tambin de elevar moralmente al pblico, como el poeta se propuso.

Abstract in english 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 Alarcn, which are kept at the Archivo General de Navarra. These documents demonstrate the interest of the patients and phys [...] icians 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.

    Full Text Available Twenty-three flavonoids were isolated from the leaves of two species of Sophora (Fabaceae from the Juan Fernández Islands (S. fernandeziana and S. masafuerana, two related species from continental Chile (S. macrocarpa and S. microphylla and one sample from New Zeland (S. microphylla. A phenetic analysis was used to evaluate chemical similarities. Flavonoid profiles suggest that Chilean and New Zealand populations of S. microphylla are most closely related to each other. Sophora masafuerana appears most closely related to S. microphylla and this pair of species is also fairly closely related to S. fernandeziana. S. macrocarpa is more distantly related to the cluster of other species. The results suggest that the two Juan Fernandez endemic species are derived from two separate introductions. The exact origin of S. masafuerana remains unclear, as the evidence does not enable us to distinguish between or clarify its possible relationships with New Zealand or South American populationsSe aislaron veintitrés flavonoides de hojas de dos especies de Sophora (Fabaceae endémicas de Juan Fernández: S. fernandeziana y S. masafuerana, dos especies de Chile continental, S. microphylla y S. macrocarpa y una población de S. microphylla proveniente de Nueva Zelanda. Se realizó un análisis fenético para evaluar la similitud química entre las especies en estudio. Las dos poblaciones de S. microphylla están más relacionadas entre sí. S. masafuerana está más relacionada a S. microphylla, formando un grupo que se relaciona con S. fernandeziana. S. macrocarpa se ubica algo distante en el fenograma.

  5. 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)

    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 Webers 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 Molires account of Don Juan, we will analyse, first and foremost, the suitability of the original literary text to the mythic discourse.

  10. Mantle flow geometry from ridge to trench beneath the Gorda-Juan de Fuca plate system

    2015-12-01

    Tectonic plates are underlain by a low-viscosity mantle layer, the asthenosphere. Asthenospheric flow may be induced by the overriding plate or by deeper mantle convection. Shear strain due to this flow can be inferred using the directional dependence of seismic wave speeds--seismic anisotropy. However, isolation of asthenospheric signals is challenging; most seismometers are located on continents, whose complex structure influences the seismic waves en route to the surface. The Cascadia Initiative, an offshore seismometer deployment in the US Pacific Northwest, offers the opportunity to analyse seismic data recorded on simpler oceanic lithosphere. Here we use measurements of seismic anisotropy across the Juan de Fuca and Gorda plates to reconstruct patterns of asthenospheric mantle shear flow from the Juan de Fuca mid-ocean ridge to the Cascadia subduction zone trench. We find that the direction of fastest seismic wave motion rotates with increasing distance from the mid-ocean ridge to become aligned with the direction of motion of the Juan de Fuca Plate, implying that this plate influences mantle flow. In contrast, asthenospheric mantle flow beneath the Gorda Plate does not align with Gorda Plate motion and instead aligns with the neighbouring Pacific Plate motion. These results show that asthenospheric flow beneath the small, slow-moving Gorda Plate is controlled largely by advection due to the much larger, faster-moving Pacific Plate.

    Full Text Available 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.

    Full Text Available De 1922 a 1938, as relações culturais entre o México e o Brasil conheceram um momento particularmente fecundo, devido em grande parte à atuação de dois intelectuais mexicanos: José Vasconcelos e Alfonso Reyes. A ausência de uma tradição de intercâmbio cultural entre o México e o Brasil fez do âmbito diplomático um espaço fundamental para a aproximação entre os dois países. Como representantes do governo mexicano - e transitando entre as fronteiras muitas vezes difusas da cultura e da política -, Vasconcelos, em 1922, e Reyes, de 1930 a 1938, estabeleceram uma ampla rede de contatos com intelectuais brasileiros e conseguiram fazer do México uma referência cultural e política importante no Brasil, durante o período.From 1922 to 1938, cultural relations between Mexico and Brazil had a particularly rich moment basically due to two Mexican intellectuals: José Vasconcelos and Alfonso Reyes. There was no tradition of cultural interchange between Mexico and Brazil; so the diplomatic sphere was transformed into a fundamental space for the approximation between these two countries. As representatives of the Mexican government - traveling between the frequently diffuse boundaries of culture and politics - Vasconcelos, in 1922, and Reyes, from 1930 to 1938, established a wide network of contacts with Brazilian intellectuals and managed to make Mexico an important cultural reference in Brazil, during that period.

  19. Chemical properties of urban waste ash produced by open burning on the Jos Plateau: implications for agriculture.

    Pasquini, M W; Alexander, M J

    2004-02-01

    Urban centres produce most of the world's waste and between a third and a half goes uncollected. The answer to the problem of waste disposal lies partly in agriculture, as waste can be extremely nutrient-rich. In the last decade there has been a tremendous increase in the developing world in total city area under informal food production and there are many examples of waste recycling onto the urban or peri-urban plots. Farmers on the Jos Plateau, Nigeria, have developed a successful soil fertility management strategy based on the combination of inorganic fertilisers, manure and urban waste ash. This study sought to provide some preliminary data on urban waste ash produced by open burning and used in farming in a developing country. Ash samples were collected from different locations around Jos and tested for C, N, pH, P, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Ni, Cd and Pb. It was found that ash is an effective liming material (because of the high pH, and high Ca, Mg and K contents), and has the potential to contribute significant quantities of micro-nutrients such as Mn, Zn and Cu. Ash, however, is far from being a homogenous material and its variability means that its fertilising potential will vary between batches and that, even if mean and median levels are low, there is the risk of the formation of localised areas of soil with excessive heavy metal contents (this is particularly the case with Pb). Further research is required to determine the plant-availability of these elements in the ash and to assess the wider environmental and health implications of uncontrolled, open burning of waste as a means of producing ash for agricultural purposes.

    Full Text Available An important change took place in the Spanish publishing market during the first years of 20th century. The writers were highly affected by this change because they began to live off literature working as authors of plays and novels and writing in newspapers. In short, they became professionals of writing in a contemporary meaning. José María Salaverría is a good example. He worked in this context and he knew how important the new situation was for the authors. Furthermore, he wrote a lot of pages thinking about writes' role in the modern society and in the Spanish publishing market taking into account their activity as professionals and intellectuals.Durante los primeros años del siglo XX se produjo una importante transformación en el mundo editorial español que afectó también a los escritores. Comenzó para ellos un proceso de profesionalización que les iba a permitir vivir de la literatura en sus distintas manifestaciones: el periodismo, los libros, el teatro, etc. José María Salaverría es un buen ejemplo de la nueva situación del escritor porque desarrolló su actividad en este nuevo contexto siendo perfectamente consciente de ello. Además, dedicó muchas páginas a reflexionar acerca del papel del escritor en el mercado editorial y, en general, en la sociedad, considerando su actividad tanto desde el punto de vista del profesional como del intelectual.

    Full Text Available Starting from a critical reading of El marxismo como moral, classical work of José Luis López Aranguren, this article deals with the problem of the normative and moral foundations of marxism. In order to go in depth into the ethical dimension of Karl Marx's and the marxist tradition's thought, the text proposes several thematic lines of analysis with the aim of liberating, at the same time, the intelectual and political project of Marx from the various clichés associated to its traditional reception. The ethical field will appear as a space of mediation between knowledge and reality, disclosing itself as fundamental to marxism from a praxeological point of view. At the end of the article there is a critical dialogue with different ethical positions in the frame of contemporary marxism.A partir de una lectura crítica de El marxismo como moral, obra clásica de José Luis López Aranguren, éste artículo trata de interrogarse acerca de los fundamentos normativos y morales del marxismo.

El ámbito ético aparecerá como espacio de mediación entre el conocimiento y la realidad, revelándose como fundamental para el marxismo desde un punto de vista praxeológico. Al final del artículo se dialoga críticamente con algunas posiciones éticas en el marco del marxismo contemporáneo.

    Full Text Available Este artículo es un acercamiento al difícil y singular diálogo con el pensamiento moderno y sus procedimientos del escritor, pensador y político cubano José Martí. La tesis es que el ideario de Martí expresó los intereses y la perspectiva de los pueblos de Hispanoamérica, a la que llamó Nuestra América, por oposición, según escribió “a la otra América, que no es nuestra”. Plenamente consciente de que la identidad de la región se sustentaba en una cultura nueva, mestiza de lo aborigen y lo español, el cubano dedicó su ensayo “Nuestra América” a explicar los factores internos que mantenían las estructuras sociales, políticas y de pensamiento de la época colonial, así como el peligro que representaba el creciente poderío de Estados Unidos.   This article aims to approach Cuban writer, thinker and politician José Martí's harsh, singular dialogue with modern thinking and its procedures. It argues that Martí's set of ideas expressed the interests and viewpoint of the peoples of Hispanic America, which he called Our America, as opposed to, according to his own texts, "the other America, the one that is not ours". Fully conscious of the fact that the region's identity was based on a new culture, resulting from a mix of the indigenous and the Spanish, Martí used his essay "Our America" (originally, "Nuestra América" to explain the internal factors that maintained the colonial social, political and ideological structures, in addition to expressing the threat the growing power of the United States represented.

    Full Text Available José Jiménez Lozano is a unique writer in the Hispanic literary scene of these last decades. His work is vast and diverse, and this initial observation does not escape his narrative, which genre the write demonstrates more prolifically. Despite the apparent diversity, there is outstanding unity underlying Jiménez Lozano´s entire work. This unity lies not only on the constant return to the same matters, but also on the approaches or the reasons, from which his literary work begins. The writer reflects over his work and lets his ideas expand through the diverse manifestations of his ideas on prose. It is a talk about the rhetorical writing of this article, valuing the coherent existence between reflection and literary practice.José Jiménez Lozano es un escritor singular dentro del panorama literario hispánico de las últimas décadas. Su obra es vasta y diversa y a esta observación inicial no escapa su narrativa, género en el que el escritor se muestra más prolífico. A pesar de la diversidad aparente, existe una notable unidad subyacente a toda la obra de Jiménez Lozano. Esta unidad reposa no sólo sobre el regreso constante a unos mismos asuntos sino también sobre los planteamientos o fundamentos de los que parte su creación literaria. El escritor reflexiona sobre su labor y deja diseminado, a través de las diversas manifestaciones de su prosa de ideas, un discurso sobre la escritura que este artículo sintetiza, valorando, asimismo, la coherencia existente entre esta reflexión y la praxis literaria.

    Multibeam data collected using a Kongsberg EM122 sonar system on the NOAA ship R/V Marcus G. Langseth led by chief scientist Douglas Toomey (University of Oregon) in 2009 and with a Simrad EM302 sonar system on two NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer cruises led by chief scientists James Gardner (University of New Hampshire) and Catalina Martinez (University of Rhode Island) in 2009 show the morphology of the Juan de Fuca and Gorda Ridges, as well as the Blanco and Mendocino Fracture Zones. These ridges and fracture zones comprise the divergent plate boundary of the eastern edge of the Pacific Plate and the western edges of the Juan de Fuca and Gorda Plates. Both plates are being subducted beneath the western edge of the North American Plate. CARIS HIPS 8.1 software was used to process the multibeam data and create bathymetric images. The ridge axes, located off the coast of Washington and Oregon (USA) adjacent to the Cascadia Basin, indicate obvious signs of spreading, due to the series of faults and rocky ridges aligned parallel to the plate boundaries. Fault and ridge orientations are used to compare the direction of seafloor spreading, and indicate that both the Juan de Fuca Plate and Gorda Plate are spreading in a southeastern direction. Younger ridges from the Gorda Ridge system mapped in the study run parallel to the boundary, however older ridges do not show the same orientation, indicating a change in spreading direction. The presence of hydrothermal vents along the Juan de Fuca Ridge is also evidence of the active boundary, as the vent chimneys are composed of minerals and metals precipitated from the hot water heated by magma from beneath the spreading seafloor. In this study, the data are used to compare and contrast earthquake seismicity and ridge morphologies at a depth range of approximately 762 to 2134 meters. The diverging Pacific, Juan de Fuca, and Gorda Plates along with the San Andreas Fault have potential to increase seismic and volcanic activity around the diverging plates and North America's west coast.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo del sabio conservacionista Henri Pittier (1857-1950 que data de 1904 es posiblemente el primer testimonio sobre la excepcional longevidad de los habitantes de la Península de Nicoya, Costa Rica. Fue el estadístico costarricense Carlos Raabe quien llamó mi atención sobre este ensayo cuando en 2007 diversos medios de comunicación del mundo dan a conocer a la, así llamada, “Blue Zone” de Nicoya. La organización National Geographic había acuñado tres años antes en un artículo de su conocida revista el término Blue Zone para designar tres bolsones de súper longevidad en el mundo: Okinawa en Japón, Cerdeña en Italia y Loma Linda en California, EEUU. Más tarde, y a raíz de una ponencia sobre la excepcionalmente baja mortalidad de los nonagenarios costarricenses que presenté en la XXV Conferencia Mundial de la Unión Internacional para el Estudio Científico de la Población (IUSSP en Tours, Francia y tras cuidadoso examen de la evidencia científica, National Geographic incluye a la península de Nicoya como la cuarta Blue Zone del mundo. Henri Pittier se anticipa, entonces, cien años en descubrir la Blue Zone de Nicoya.¿Quién es Henri Pittier?Una rápida búsqueda en Google da cuenta de que el más antiguo y más famoso parque nacional de Venezuela, establecido en 1938, se denomina Henri Pittier en reconocimiento al botánico y geógrafo suizo de ese nombre que se estableció en ese país en 1917 y que publicó en 1926 el “Manual de las Plantas Usuales de Venezuela” una obra clásica reeditada varias veces y utilizada hasta nuestros días. Pittier publicó cerca de 300 obras, entre los que se cuenta otra obra clásica: “Primitia Flora Costaricensis” (1907. Henri Pittier es de la estirpe de los sabios naturalistas del Siglo XIX como Humboldt o Darwin. Llega a Costa Rica en 1887 invitado por las visionarias autoridades de educación costarricense de entonces quienes al mando de Mauro Fernández y Ricardo Jiménez importaron educadores y científicos europeos para establecer un moderno sistema educativo nacional. Henri Pittier reside en Costa Rica durante 17 años en los que enseña en el Liceo de Costa Rica, establece el Instituto Meteorológico Nacional, dirige el Instituto Físico Geográfico y el Herbario Nacional e impulsa el establecimiento del Museo Nacional como centro de investigación y exhibición de la historia natural del país. Pittier deja Costa Rica en 1905 para recorrer las Américas como botánico del Ministerio de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos durante 14 años. Se establece finalmente en Venezuela como funcionario del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores en 1919 y allí dirige y funda varias instituciones públicas y privadas, entre ellas el Parque Nacional que más tarde llevaría su nombre y el Herbario Nacional, hoy Instituto Botánico. En las décadas finales de su vida lleva a cabo la monumental obra de estudiar y clasificar más de 30.000 plantas en Venezuela.Pittier viajó ampliamente por Costa Rica y las observaciones de sus viajes, publicadas en diversos medios, incrementaron sustancialmente el conocimiento de la geografía y biología de Costa Rica. El ensayo que aquí reproducimos recoge observaciones de uno de esos viajes. En particular, captura los recuerdos de un centenario nicoyano, José Silverio Gómez, fallecido en 1904 a la edad de 103 años. Aunque esos recuerdos aportan valiosa información sobre la vida y el entorno natural de Nicoya del Siglo XIX, nuestro interés fundamental en esta crónica es la observación del sabio Pittier de que los moradores de la zona disfrutan del privilegio de una larga vida: “…en todas mis peregrinaciones por estas tierras no he encontrado otro rincón cuyos habitantes estén bendecidos con tal abundancia de años” escribe el sabio. Aunque la percepción de Pittier es puramente anecdótica no deja de tener interés como antecedente de los estudios que, basándose en datos puros y duros, han mostrado que los ancianos nicoyanos tienen de las más bajas tasas de moralidad en el mundo.

    Full Text Available O texto discorre sobre a obra científica e as proposições de proteção à natureza do botânico brasileiro Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, um dos maiores conhecedores da flora brasileira e um dos pioneiros do conservacionismo no país. Analisa diversos pontos de sua trajetória de cientista, ativista e professor. A atenção recai especialmente sobre as suas três principais produções literárias, publicadas entre 1926 e 1935, nas quais focaliza a distribuição geográfica dos conjuntos de vegetação do Brasil e propõe diversos programas de aproveitamento racional e de preservação dos recursos naturais brasileiros. Mostra-se que as suas idéias estavam influenciadas pelos ideais de um estado forte capaz de construir uma nova identidade nacional, com base na riqueza da natureza brasileira. A conclusão é que as idéias de Sampaio foram avançadas para a sua época e que elas conservam grande parte de sua atualidade, mesmo depois de décadas de prevalência de uma ideologia desenvolvimentista em que ele e diversos cientistas naturais conservacionistas seus contemporâneos foram quase inteiramente esquecidos.The text discusses the scientific output and the proposals for nature protection by the Brazilian botanist Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, one of Brazil.s leading plant scientists and one of the country.s pioneer conservationists. Several aspects of his trajectory as a scientist, activist and teacher are examined. The emphasis falls on his three major books, published between 1926 and 1935, in which he writes about the geographic distribution of Brazil's vegetational forms and presents many proposals in favor of the rational use and preservation of the country.s natural resources. It is shown that his proposals were influenced by the concept of the need of a strong State that could build a new national identity, based on Brazilian nature. The text concludes that Sampaio.s ideas were quite advanced for his times and that many of them are still relevant to current environmental issues, even after decades of prevalence of a strong developmentalist ideology in which his ideas and those of his contemporary scientific colleagues were almost totally forgotten.

La ictiofauna se compone de una mezcla de taxa de origen subtropical y templado, con una mayor similitud a las especies del Pacfico occidental que a las del Pacfico suroriental. Se identificaron diferentes ensambles de peces en sitios expuestos y protegidos. Las macroalgas pardas y rojas limitaron la abundancia de algunos peces de arrecife. Cuatro categoras trficas de peces de arrecife, estuvieron presentes en el archipilago, siendo los invertvoros los consumidores dominantes. Hasta donde se sabe, este es el primer intento en identificar los patrones de la estructura comunitaria en ambientes submareales en el archipilago de Juan Fernndez. Abstract in english The Juan Fernndez Archipelago (3337'S, 7851'W), an isolated group of islands 650 km west of continental Chile, has a high degree of endemism in its marine biota. Despite numerous scientific expeditions to these islands that have identified this high endemism, few studies have attempted to identif [...] y patterns of community structure in subtidal habitats. Using visual census, we surveyed fish and habitat associations at five sites located at two of the three islands of the archipelago. Given the isolation of the archipelago we asked: What is the composition of the reef fish fauna at these isolated islands? What habitats dominate subtidal environments? What influences the abundances of reef fishes? Our analysis confirms that fish communities at the archipielago are dominated by endemic species. The ichthyofauna is comprised of a mixture of subtropical and temperate taxa, with greater similarity to western than eastern South Pacific fauna. We identified different fish assemblages at wave-exposed and wave-sheltered sites. Brown and red macroalgae were correlated with the abundances of some reef fishes. Four broad trophic categories of reef fishes were present at the archipelago, with invertebrate consumers dominating abundance. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to quantify patterns of community structure in subtidal environments at the Juan Fernndez Archipelago.

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 Aragn Forest (Bosque San Juan de Aragn, 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.

    Full Text Available The relationship between mysticism and poetry has become an almost inevitable topic in any study on the work of José Ángel Valente. However, we must be careful when studying this relationship if we want to avoid an erroneous interpretation. We cannot take as starting point an a priori identification of the question about the Sacred (so important not only in contemporary poetry, but also in contemporary art with the belief in a real numinous presence that we find in the mystic tradition. The poetry of Valente is better understood if we consider an experience of the Sacred being originated not only from the sacred presence but also from its absence. This experience of the Sacred cannot be conceived apart from poetry itself (a poetry that appears in the philosophical and religious horizon of God’s death. The search for the Sacred is developed through three great paths in the work of Valente: the matter, the body (love and eroticism and the poetic word (and also the silence.La vinculación entre la mística y la poesía se ha convertido en un tema casi obligado para cualquier análisis crítico de la obra de José Ángel Valente. Sin embargo, cabe preguntarse si una interpretación apresurada de este vínculo no puede llevarnos a lecturas erradas de la compleja escritura del poeta, cuando se parte de una identificación a priori entre la pregunta por lo sagrado que caracteriza a buena parte del arte contemporáneo (no sólo a la poesía y la certeza de la presencia numinosa en la tradición mística. Trataremos de mostrar en este ensayo cómo la escritura valentiana se entiende mejor desde una experiencia de lo sagrado que nace tanto de la presencia como de la ausencia y que es inseparable de la propia escritura (una escritura que no puede evitar inscribirse en el horizonte filosófico y religioso de la muerte de Dios. La búsqueda de lo sagrado en Valente encuentra tres itinerarios privilegiados: la materia, el cuerpo (el amor y el erotismo y la palabra poética (y el silencio.

    Full Text Available The F-(Pb, Zn, Ba district of Sierra de Baza are a (Southeastern Spain is mainly constituted by fluorite-(galene stratiform and stratabound mineralizations which are included in Carbonate levels of Ladinian-Carnian age. These levels also contain vein mineralizations but only in certain zones as de Calar de San José and the Calar de Santa Bárbara. This paper deals with the main structural and mineralogical characteristics of the vein mineralizations and their relations with the geological context evolution. Special attention is given to the tectonic and the spatial association with the stratiform and stratabound, mineralizations of sedimentary/diagenetic character. Two types of vein mineralizations may be distinguished : one type is represented by small "in situ" remobilizations, from the stratiform and stratabound mineralizat ioos, which have been formed during the final stages of alpine deformations; the other one has been formed before Alpina Orogeny and probably in direct relation with an intratriassic tectonic phase.

    El distrito de F-(Pb, Zn, Ba de la Sierra de Baza (al SE de España está constituido fundamentalmente por mineralizaciones estratiformes y estratoligadas de fluorita-(galena, enclavadas en niveles carbonatados del Ladiniense Superior-Carniense. En estos mismos niveles, en algunos sectores como los del Calar de San José y Calar de Santa Bárbara, que constituyen el área de mayor importancia de este distrito minero, dichas mineralizaciones coexisten con otras de tipo filoniano. La presente nota trata esencialmente de las principales características estructurales y mineralógicas de las mineralizaciones filonianas y de sus relaciones con la evolución del contexto geológico, muy especialmente en lo que se refiere a la tectónica y a su asociación espacial con las mineralizaciones estratiformes y estratoligadas de carácter sedimentario/diagenético. Se han diferenciado dos tipos de mineralizaciones filonianas: unas, representadas por removilizaciones "in situ", a pequeña escala, de las de tipo estratiforme y estratoligado, que han ocurrido en las últimas etapas de deformación alpina; y otras, formadas con anterioridad a la orogenia alpina y directamente relacionadas con una tectónica intratriásica de carácter aparentemente distensivo.

La mayoría de las plantas registradas son conocidas entre la población adulta de las veredas y son los ancianos los  que mejor las conocen pero los adultos jóvenes conocen y usan plantas que los ancianos no, esto puede estar indicando la renovación y cambio de este conocimiento a lo cual habría que dedicar mayor investigación de carácter etnobotánico.

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available Commons scholarship has tended to focus on the administration and use of commons by individuals and households and less so on collective enterprises that extract, transform and market what they harvest from the commons. In this paper, we consider Nuevo San Juan, a Mexican case that is well known in the community forestry and commons literature. In San Juan, indigenous community members who hold the rights for the commons are also the members of the enterprise that transforms and markets goods from the commons. We argue that such a strategy is one way to confront internal and external pressures on a commons. We draw upon the transcripts of 40 interviews undertaken during 2006 which are analyzed using a framework developed from the social, community-based and indigenous enterprise literature. Our goal was to utilize this framework to analyze the San Juan Forest Enterprise and understand its emergence and formation as a long-standing community-based enterprise that intersects with a commons, and thereby identify factors that increase chances of success for community enterprises. We found that by starting from the community-based and indigenous enterprise literature and using that literature to engage with thinking on commons, it was possible to consider the enterprise from the perspective of a regulatory framework rather than from the poles of dependency and modernization theories in which much commons work has been based. Enterprise and commons intersect when both are guided by core cultural values and the enterprise can become a new site for the creation of social and cultural cohesion. We also found that there were a number of necessary conditions for commons-based community-enterprises to retain internal and external legitimacy, namely: (1 leadership representative of the broad social mission rooted in the customary institutions, values and norms of the community; (2 accountability of enterprise leaders to the memberships they represent; and (3 a close adherence to the political goals of the community as a whole.

    Climate change has important implications for public health. We developed and tested the hypothesis that conditions for dengue fever transmission in San Juan (Puerto Rico, USA) are becoming favorable as a result of meteorological drivers being modified with climate change. Sea level pressure, mean sea level (MSL), wind, sea surface temperature (SST), air surface temperature (AST), rainfall, and confirmed dengue cases were variables examined over the past 30 years, or longer for some variables. Statistical tools used included Principal Component Analysis, Pearson correlation coefficient, Mann-Kendall trend tests, and logistic regressions. Results show that dry days are increasing and that wet days are decreasing. MSL is steadily increasing, which increases the risk of dengue cases along the coast, as the perimeter of the San Juan Bay estuary expands and the shoreline moves inland. Warming is evident in both SST and AST. Maximum and minimum air surface temperature extremes have also increased. Incidence of dengue is accelerating along with environmental change. For example, between 2000-2011, dengue transmission increased by a factor of 3.4 (95% CI: 1.9-6.1) for each 1ºC increase in SST. Between 2007 and 2011, this risk factor increased to 5.2 (95% CI: 1.9-13.9) for every 1ºC increase in SST. An important but difficult to examine problem is how social and economic factors affect such dengue fever transmission rates in light of environmental change. A concern is that the patterns observed in San Juan are representative of potential incidence of dengue virus in other parts of the island of Puerto Rico and in other Caribbean nations. These results help understand patterns of disease spreading, and allow public health officials to evaluate scenarios and interventions intended to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

  7. Marine Biodiversity in Juan Fernndez and Desventuradas Islands, Chile: Global Endemism Hotspots.

    The Juan Fernndez and Desventuradas islands are among the few oceanic islands belonging to Chile. They possess a unique mix of tropical, subtropical, and temperate marine species, and although close to continental South America, elements of the biota have greater affinities with the central and south Pacific owing to the Humboldt Current, which creates a strong biogeographic barrier between these islands and the continent. The Juan Fernndez Archipelago has ~700 people, with the major industry being the fishery for the endemic lobster, Jasus frontalis. The Desventuradas Islands are uninhabited except for a small Chilean military garrison on San Flix Island. We compared the marine biodiversity of these islands across multiple taxonomic groups. At San Ambrosio Island (SA), in Desventuradas, the laminarian kelp (Eisenia cokeri), which is limited to Desventuradas in Chile, accounted for >50% of the benthic cover at wave exposed areas, while more sheltered sites were dominated by sea urchin barrens. The benthos at Robinson Crusoe Island (RC), in the Juan Fernndez Archipelago, comprised a diverse mix of macroalgae and invertebrates, a number of which are endemic to the region. The biomass of commercially targeted fishes was >2 times higher in remote sites around RC compared to sheltered locations closest to port, and overall biomass was 35% higher around SA compared to RC, likely reflecting fishing effects around RC. The number of endemic fish species was extremely high at both islands, with 87.5% of the species surveyed at RC and 72% at SA consisting of regional endemics. Remarkably, endemics accounted for 99% of the numerical abundance of fishes surveyed at RC and 96% at SA, which is the highest assemblage-level endemism known for any individual marine ecosystem on earth. Our results highlight the uniqueness and global significance of these biodiversity hotspots exposed to very different fishing pressures. PMID:26734732

In San Juan, indigenous community members who hold the rights for the commons are also the members of the enterprise that transforms and markets goods from the commons. We argue that such a strategy is one way to confront internal and external pressures on a commons. We draw upon the transcripts of 40 interviews undertaken during 2006 which are analyzed using a framework developed from the social, community-based and indigenous enterprise literature. Our goal was to utilize this framework to analyze the San Juan Forest Enterprise and understand its emergence and formation as a long-standing community-based enterprise that intersects with a commons, and thereby identify factors that increase chances of success for community enterprises. We found that by starting from the community-based and indigenous enterprise literature and using that literature to engage with thinking on commons, it was possible to consider the enterprise from the perspective of a regulatory framework rather than from the poles of dependency and modernization theories in which much commons work has been based. Enterprise and commons intersect when both are guided by core cultural values and the enterprise can become a new site for the creation of social and cultural cohesion. We also found that there were a number of necessary conditions for commons-based community-enterprises to retain internal and external legitimacy, namely: (1 leadership representative of the broad social mission rooted in the customary institutions, values and norms of the community; (2 accountability of enterprise leaders to the memberships they represent; and (3 a close adherence to the political goals of the community as a whole.

  9. 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)

  10. Marine Biodiversity in Juan Fernández and Desventuradas Islands, Chile: Global Endemism Hotspots

    The Juan Fernández and Desventuradas islands are among the few oceanic islands belonging to Chile. They possess a unique mix of tropical, subtropical, and temperate marine species, and although close to continental South America, elements of the biota have greater affinities with the central and south Pacific owing to the Humboldt Current, which creates a strong biogeographic barrier between these islands and the continent. The Juan Fernández Archipelago has ~700 people, with the major industry being the fishery for the endemic lobster, Jasus frontalis. The Desventuradas Islands are uninhabited except for a small Chilean military garrison on San Félix Island. We compared the marine biodiversity of these islands across multiple taxonomic groups. At San Ambrosio Island (SA), in Desventuradas, the laminarian kelp (Eisenia cokeri), which is limited to Desventuradas in Chile, accounted for >50% of the benthic cover at wave exposed areas, while more sheltered sites were dominated by sea urchin barrens. The benthos at Robinson Crusoe Island (RC), in the Juan Fernández Archipelago, comprised a diverse mix of macroalgae and invertebrates, a number of which are endemic to the region. The biomass of commercially targeted fishes was >2 times higher in remote sites around RC compared to sheltered locations closest to port, and overall biomass was 35% higher around SA compared to RC, likely reflecting fishing effects around RC. The number of endemic fish species was extremely high at both islands, with 87.5% of the species surveyed at RC and 72% at SA consisting of regional endemics. Remarkably, endemics accounted for 99% of the numerical abundance of fishes surveyed at RC and 96% at SA, which is the highest assemblage-level endemism known for any individual marine ecosystem on earth. Our results highlight the uniqueness and global significance of these biodiversity hotspots exposed to very different fishing pressures. PMID:26734732

    Full Text Available Doubleness and duplicity in the novel The Book of Chameleons by the Angolan writer Jose Eduardo Agualusa are analyzed. The two factors may be found in the identification between the two narrators and in the two most emphasized possibilities in the interpretation of the novel, or rather, subjectivity and national identity. Agualusa’s novel may also be defined as belonging to ‘minor literature’, as conceived by Deleuze and Guattari’s text Kafka: Toward a minor literature. According to these authors, in minor literature, each subject is inscribed in and connected with politics, a highly strong factor in The Book of Chameleons.O presente trabalho visa a apontar a presença do duplo e da duplicidade no romance O vendedor de passados, do escritor angolano José Eduardo Agualusa, que podem ser encontradas desde a identificação entre os dois narradores do texto até as duas mais insistentes possibilidades de leitura da obra: uma referente à subjetividade e, a outra, relativa à identidade nacional. Pretendemos, ainda, mostrar que o romance de Agualusa pode ser definido como pertencente à ‘literatura menor’, conceito forjado por Deleuze e Guattari, no texto Kafka: por uma literatura menor (1977. De acordo com os autores, nas literaturas menores, o individual é ramificado no imediato político, característica fortemente marcada em O vendedor de passados.

    Full Text Available Human chlamydiosis is a zoonotic disease of avian origin caused by Chlamydia psittaci. The highest infection rates have been detected in parrots (Psittacidae and pigeons (Columbiformes, the latter most frequently carry the genotypes B and E. These genotypes have been shown to also infect humans. Because pigeons (Columba livia cohabit with humans in urban areas, C. psittaci present in the dust from dry feces of infected pigeons may be transmitted by inhalation and represent a significant public health problem. Between 2012 and 2013 a total of 120 fecal samples were collected from pigeons at four public places (Plaza de la Cultura, Parque Morazán, Parque Central de Guadalupe, Plaza de las Garantías Sociales in San José, Costa Rica. A nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR was used to amplify a region of the outer membrane protein A gene of C. psittaci. Only one sample was positive in PCR and the positive sample was further subjected to sequencing and genotyping. Sequencing identified this sample as C. psittaci genotype B. This study is the first report to show the presence of this organism in pigeons of Costa Rica, and shows that the infected pigeons may represent a significant risk for humans who visit public places that are inhabited by pigeons.

  16. Tomographic imaging of the Cascadia subduction zone: Constraints on the Juan de Fuca slab

    Chen, Chuanxu; Zhao, Dapeng; Wu, Shiguo

    2015-04-01

    We used 40,343 P-wave arrival times from 1883 local earthquakes and 105,455 P-wave arrivals from 6361 teleseismic events to study the detailed structure of the Cascadia subduction zone. We conducted tomographic inversions using a starting velocity model which includes the high-velocity subducting Juan de Fuca slab as a priori information. A number of such slab-constrained inversions are conducted by changing the slab thickness and the velocity contrast between the slab and the surrounding mantle. Our optimal 3-D velocity model fits the data much better than that determined by an inversion with a 1-D homogeneous starting model. Our results show that the subducting Juan de Fuca slab has a thickness of 30-50 km and a P-wave velocity of 1-3% higher than that of the surrounding mantle. Beneath the northern and southern parts of the Cascadia, P-wave velocity is lower in the slab and along the slab interface, which may reflect a more hydrated slab and more active slab dehydration there. The lateral velocity variations may indicate different degrees of slab dehydration and forearc mantle serpentinization. The segmentation in episodic tremor and slip (ETS) is also spatially coincident with the velocity heterogeneities, indicating that the ETS occurrence and recurrence interval are controlled by fluid activity in and around the mantle wedge corner.

    A common mode of speciation in oceanic islands is by anagenesis, wherein an immigrant arrives and through time transforms by mutation, recombination, and drift into a morphologically and genetically distinct species, with the new species accumulating a high level of genetic diversity. We investigate speciation in Drimys confertifolia, endemic to the two major islands of the Juan Fernndez Archipelago, Chile, to determine genetic consequences of anagenesis, to examine relationships among populations of D. confertifolia and the continental species D. winteri and D. andina, and to test probable migration routes between the major islands. Population genetic analyses were conducted using AFLPs and nuclear microsatellites of 421 individuals from 42 populations from the Juan Fernndez islands and the continent. Drimys confertifolia shows a wide genetic variation within populations on both islands, and values of genetic diversity within populations are similar to those found within populations of the continental progenitor. The genetic results are compatible with the hypothesis of high levels of genetic variation accumulating within anagenetically derived species in oceanic islands, and with the concept of little or no geographical partitioning of this variation over the landscape. Analysis of the probability of migration within the archipelago confirms colonization from the older island, Robinson Crusoe, to the younger island Alejandro Selkirk. PMID:25292282

  18. Sub-Seafloor Carbon Dioxide Storage Potential on the Juan de Fuca Plate, Western North America

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Jerry Fairley; Robert Podgorney

    2012-11-01

    The Juan de Fuca plate, off the western coast of North America, has been suggested as a site for geological sequestration of waste carbon dioxide because of its many attractive characteristics (high permeability, large storage capacity, reactive rock types). Here we model CO2 injection into fractured basalts comprising the upper several hundred meters of the sub-seafloor basalt reservoir, overlain with low-permeability sediments and a large saline water column, to examine the feasibility of this reservoir for CO2 storage. Our simulations indicate that the sub-seafloor basalts of the Juan de Fuca plate may be an excellent CO2 storage candidate, as multiple trapping mechanisms (hydrodynamic, density inversions, and mineralization) act to keep the CO2 isolated from terrestrial environments. Questions remain about the lateral extent and connectivity of the high permeability basalts; however, the lack of wells or boreholes and thick sediment cover maximize storage potential while minimizing potential leakage pathways. Although promising, more study is needed to determine the economic viability of this option.

    We present a Geographic Information System (GIS) of a new 3-dimensional (3D) model of the subducted Juan de Fuca Plate beneath western North America and associated seismicity of the Cascadia subduction system. The geo-referenced 3D model was constructed from weighted control points that integrate depth information from hypocenter locations and regional seismic velocity studies. We used the 3D model to differentiate earthquakes that occur above the Juan de Fuca Plate surface from earthquakes that occur below the plate surface. This GIS project of the Cascadia subduction system supersedes the one previously published by McCrory and others (2006). Our new slab model updates the model with new constraints. The most significant updates to the model include: (1) weighted control points to incorporate spatial uncertainty, (2) an additional gridded slab surface based on the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) Surface program which constructs surfaces based on splines in tension (see expanded description below), (3) double-differenced hypocenter locations in northern California to better constrain slab location there, and (4) revised slab shape based on new hypocenter profiles that incorporate routine depth uncertainties as well as data from new seismic-reflection and seismic-refraction studies. We also provide a 3D fly-through animation of the model for use as a visualization tool.

  1. Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge: One of the Most Remarkable Places on Earth

    Full Text Available Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge is one of three Integrated Study Sites for the Ridge 2000 Program. It is a remarkable, dynamic environment hosting five major hydrothermal fields, numerous smaller fields, and myriad diffuse-flow sites; magma chambers underlie all fields. Over 800 individual extinct and active chimneys have been documented within the central ~ 15 km portion of the ridge, with some edifices reaching 50 m across and up to 45 m tall. Fluid flow is focused along faults within the rift zone, and seismically active faults along the western axial valley wall have been used by both magmas and upwelling hydrothermal fluids. There is significant chemical heterogeneity in basalt compositions within the axial rift valley, with the greatest diversity occurring near the base of the western axial valley wall where normal, transitional, and enriched type mid-ocean ridge basalts occur within tens of meters of each other. Endeavour is the only site where seismic intensity has been linked directly to heat flux at the individual vent field scale. Installation of the world's first high-power and high-bandwidth cabled observatory at Endeavour via NEPTUNE Canada ensures that new discoveries along the Juan de Fuca Ridge will continue into the future.

    2009-03-01

    The presence of West Nile (WNV) and dengue viruses and the lack of recent mosquito surveys in Puerto Rico prompted an investigation on the distribution and abundance of potential arbovirus vectors in the San Juan Metropolitan Area, and their variation with seasons and habitats. We sampled mosquitoes in early and late 2005 in 58 sites from forests, nonforest vegetation, wetlands, and high- and low-density housing areas using ovijars, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention miniature light/CO2 traps, and gravid traps. A total of 28 mosquito species was found. San Juan had potential WNV enzooticvectors (Culex nigripalpus) within and around the city in wetlands and forests, but few were captured in residential areas. A potential WNV bridge vector (Cx. quinquefasciatus) was abundant in urbanized areas, and it was positively correlated with the main dengue vector, Aedes aegypti. High-density housing areas harbored more Ae. aegypti. Container mosquitoes, including Aedes mediovittatus, were more abundant during the climax of the rainy season when most dengue occurs in Puerto Rico. The greatest risk for contracting WNV would be visiting forests and swamps at night. Culex (Culex) and Culex (Melanoconion) mosquito species were more abundant during the transition dry-wet seasons (March-May). PMID:19432067

  4. Base of moderately saline ground water in San Juan County, Utah

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The base of moderately saline groundwater was delineated for San Juan County, Utah, based on water-quality data and formation-water resistivity determined from geophysical well logs using the resistivity-porosity, spontaneous-potential, and resistivity-ratio methods. These data and the contour map developed from them show that a thick layer of very saline to briny groundwater underlies the eastern two-thirds of San Juan County. The upper surface of this layer is affected by the geologic structure of the area, is affected by the geologic structure of the area, but it may be modified locally by recharge mounds of less saline water and by vertical leakage of water through transmissive faults and fractures. The highest altitude of the base of moderately saline water is west of the Abajo Mountains where it is more than 6,500 ft above sea level. The lowest altitude is in the western part of the county and is below sea level; depressions in the base of moderately saline water in recharge areas in the La Sal and Abajo Mountains also may be that low. The base of moderately saline water commonly is in the Permian Cutler Formation or the Pennsylvanian Honaker Trail Formation of the Hermosa Group, but locally may be as high stratigraphically as the Triassic and Jurassic Navajo Sandstone north of the Abajo Mountains and in the Jurassic Morrison Formation south of the mountains

    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 Antropologa e Historia, Mexico, in 1969 (Departamento de Investigaciones Antropolgicas, 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

    Full Text Available The Juan Fernndez Archipelago (3337'S, 7851'W, an isolated group of islands 650 km west of continental Chile, has a high degree of endemism in its marine biota. Despite numerous scientific expeditions to these islands that have identified this high endemism, few studies have attempted to identify patterns of community structure in subtidal habitats. Using visual census, we surveyed fish and habitat associations at five sites located at two of the three islands of the archipelago. Given the isolation of the archipelago we asked: What is the composition of the reef fish fauna at these isolated islands? What habitats dominate subtidal environments? What influences the abundances of reef fishes? Our analysis confirms that fish communities at the archipielago are dominated by endemic species. The ichthyofauna is comprised of a mixture of subtropical and temperate taxa, with greater similarity to western than eastern South Pacific fauna. We identified different fish assemblages at wave-exposed and wave-sheltered sites. Brown and red macroalgae were correlated with the abundances of some reef fishes. Four broad trophic categories of reef fishes were present at the archipelago, with invertebrate consumers dominating abundance. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to quantify patterns of community structure in subtidal environments at the Juan Fernndez Archipelago.

The sources for the Libro segundo, which includes systematic explanations on the theory of proportions, the skeleton and musculature have yet to be discovered. Its didactic and illustrative structure is unique in the context of sixteenth-century literature. The general layout and some details of the illustrations of the first three chapters seem to be derived from the Windsor convolute of anatomical drawings by Leonardo da Vinci.Los cuatros libros de Varia commensuración para la escultura y architectura (1585-1587 del platero y escultor Juan de Arfe y Villafañe representan un extenso compendio de las teorías y técnicas del Renacimiento italiano.

    Full Text Available El campo elico de Mdanos Grandes, sudeste de la provincia de San Juan (Argentina), es uno de los ms extensos del pas y est formado por distintos tipos de dunas, principalmente transversales y longitudinales. Junto a stas aparecen grandes megaformas elicas o draas, de hasta 70 metros de altura [...] y 2000 metros de espaciamiento. El anlisis de imgenes satelitales permiti identificar cinco unidades geomorfolgicas caracterizadas por geoformas de diferente morfologa, tamao, orientacin y direccin de migracin. En la unidad geomrfica 1 (UG1) se incluyen draas de crestas transversales (orientadas al azimut 150), ligeramente sinuosas, con dunas menores sobreimpuestas. La disposicin de sus caras de sotavento indica que este conjunto se desarroll a partir de paleovientos del sudoeste. En la conformacin de la UG2 aparecen tambin draas transversales con dunas asociadas, sin embargo en este caso la orientacin de los primeros evidencia paleovientos del noreste. Por otro lado, las dunas menores se disponen de forma oblicua y se habran, por lo tanto, formado con posterioridad. En la UG3, ubicada en el centro del campo elico, se destaca la presencia de grandes hoyos de deflacin, de hasta 1000 metros de dimetro y 50 metros de desnivel con respecto a las dunas adyacentes. As mismo, esta unidad se caracteriza por un diseo enrejado de mdanos, resultado de la interferencia de las crestas de los draas pertenecientes a las unidades 1 y 2. La UG4 comprende dunas longitudinales, de hasta 40 metros de altura y 150 metros de espaciamiento, que se asocian a pequeas dunas transversales. La disposicin de las dunas longitudinales, junto con la orientacin de las caras de sotavento de las formas menores, indican paleovientos del sud-sudeste. Por ltimo, la UG5 est integrada por dunas transversales, barjanoides y longitudinales, que ocupan la periferia del campo elico aqu estudiado. Constituye la unidad ms moderna y respondera tambin a vientos del sud-sudeste similares a los actuales. Las geoformas elicas de Mdanos Grandes estn formadas por arenas finas (X= 2,88 ), muy bien seleccionadas (s= 0,45 ) y con distribuciones granulomtricas unimodales y simtricas (SK 1 = 0,05). El percentil del 1 % corresponde a la arena mediana (1,87 ) y el material inferior a 53 ? conforma en promedio el 1,05 % de las muestras. En cuanto a la composicin de las arenas predominan los fragmentos lticos (clastos de volcanitas, mayormente cidas y mesosilcicas, esquistos micceos, anfibolitas, milonitas, chert, sedimentitas y calizas), junto a moderados porcentajes de feldespatos y muy baja proporcin de cuarzo y minerales pesados. La presencia de geoformas con diferente morfologa y orientacin indica que el sistema elico de Mdanos Grandes es policclico ya que en su conformacin se sucedieron distintos episodios de crecimiento, bajo distintos patrones de vientos. Las unidades geomrficas identificadas pueden ser tentativamente correlacionadas con los estadios climticos propuestos por autores anteriores para la regin pampeana. Finalmente, en la actualidad el campo elico de Mdanos Grandes se halla parcialmente erodado debido a la accin fluvial, constituyendo probablemente un remanente de un extenso sistema elico que cubra gran parte del valle del Bermejo. Abstract in english Mdanos Grandes dunefield, which is located near Vallecito city at the southeast of San Juan province (Argentina), is one of the largest eolian depositional systems in Argentina. It is formed by draas together with transversal and longitudinal dunes and large blowouts. Alluvial plain deposits relate [...] d to San Juan and Bermejo rivers, and the Pie de Palo and Valle Frtil hills sourround the eolian system (Fig. 1).

    Full Text Available Los artesanos oaxaqueños son célebres por la calidad de sus trabajos, el éxito de sus negocios y la capacidad de sus productos para trascender en el espacio y el tiempo. Los tejedores de algodón y textiles de lana, los fabricantes de cerámica de barro y más recientemente talladores de madera, que hacen alebrijes (animales de madera pintada, producen artículos que son comprados y vendidos en el mercado internacional y son exhibidos mundialmente en las colecciones de museos. Sin embargo, hay artesanías en Oaxaca que no son viables en el mercado y no aparecen en colecciones internacionales. En este documento examinamos la producción de canastas en la comunidad de San Juan Guelavia. Argumentamos que la caída en el mercado refleja tres cambios críticos: primero, una disminución en el uso local; segundo, un alza en los costos de producción; y tercero, una falta de apoyo de exportadores y una incapacidad para involucrarse en el mercado de exportación.Oaxacan artisans are celebrated for the quality of their work, their business success, and the ability of their goods to transcend space and time. Weavers of cotton and woolen textiles, potters, and most recently wood carvers who make alebrijes (painted wooden animals produce goods that are bought and sold on the international market and appear in museum collections world-wide. 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.

    Full Text Available Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP has become the preferred treatment method for hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease. Despite technological progress this technique continues to account for the greatest morbidity and mortality caused by digestive endoscopic procedures. ERCP carries a risk of pancreatitis, perforation, hemorrhage, cholangitis and cardiopulmonary events occurring in upto 10% of patients in referral centers, implying a mortality of up to 1%, not including therapeutic failures or the need for re-intervention. A greater mortality rate has been demonstrated in prospective studies rather than in retrospective studies, but overall, the number of complications described in the literature is much lower than the number of complications that actually occur. A descriptive prospective study was conducted at San José Hospital from April 1, 2006 to April 30, 2007 in patients who underwent an ERCP and had a 1-month follow-up. A total of 381 patients were included; 9 (2.3% were excluded, and of the remaining 372 there was an overall success in 79.6% of cases, 8.3% had a second intervention, 7.6% developed complications (pancreatitis, perforation, hemorrhage, cholangitis, pain, intolerance to sedatives, and cardiopulmonary events, and 4.3% were failed ERCP studies. The mortality rate of the ERCP procedure was 0.8%. ERCP-related complications were determined at a teaching center, and this suggests the need to implement centers of excellence in order to improve the efficacy of the procedure.La colangiopancreatografía retrograda endoscópica (CPRE se ha convertido en el procedimiento terapéutico por excelencia de la vía biliopancreática. A pesar de los avances tecnológicos continúa siendo la técnica con mayor morbimortalidad de la endoscopia digestiva. Las complicaciones de la CPRE incluyen la pancreatitis, perforación, hemorragia, colangitis y eventos cardiopulmonares que en centros de referencia ocurren hasta en un 10%, implicando una mortalidad hasta del 1%, sin incluir las fallas terapéuticas ni las reintervenciones. En los estudios prospectivos se ha demostrado un porcentaje mayor de morbilidad que en los retrospectivos, aunque en general, en los estudios publicados, se reconoce un porcentaje menor de complicaciones al que realmente ocurre. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo prospectivo desde el 1 de abril de 2006 hasta el 30 de abril de 2007 en los pacientes del Hospital de San José a quienes se les practicó CPRE con un seguimiento durante un mes. Se incluyeron 381 pacientes, se excluyeron 9 (2,3%, de los restantes 372 pacientes estudiados el 79,6% fueron exitosos, el 8,3% reintervenidos, el 7,6% presentaron complicaciones (pancreatitis, perforación, hemorragia, colangitis, dolor, intolerancia a la sedación y eventos cardiopulmonares y el 4,3% fueron fallidas. La mortalidad atribuida al procedimiento fue del 0,8%. Se determinaron las complicaciones debidas a la CPRE en un centro de enseñanza sugiriendo el establecimiento de centros de excelencia en busca de una mayor efectividad del procedimiento.

En la ciudad de Fortaleza (Ceará, Brasil ese recurso fue incluido en la visita guiada al Theatro José de Alencar (TJA. Se intentó analizar los beneficios propuestos por la inserción de audio descripciones a las visitas guiadas del TJA. El problema presentado cuestionó si ese recurso, cuando se aplica a la visita guiada del TJA, puede ser adoptado como modelo de actividad turística dirigido a los ciegos. La investigación se fundamentó principalmente en los postulados teóricos establecidos por Machado (1991 y Vygotsky (1993. La metodología abarcó las etapas bibliográfica, documental y de campo. Se comprobó que para que la visita guiada audio descripta sea volcada al turismo, es imprescindible la existencia de recursos tales como inversiones financieras, capacitación de personas y la adecuación de espacios a fin de satisfacer las necesidades de esos clientes potenciales. Se concluye que existen pocas acciones unificadas por parte de la iniciativa pública y privada volcadas a la inserción de los discapacitados visuales en el ámbito del sector turístico.This study is based on the relationship between cultural institutions and visually impaired, with regard to their access to culture and tourism.

    Full Text Available In México, discharge of waste water not treated is a common problem; this is the case of the Lerma River, where the original clean water contribution of the Almoloya–Lerma–San Bartolo timber–roof system, located in the valley of Toluca, State of México, was replaced by the wastewater of the valley. The attempts to clean the water before their spill have been unfruitful and this has caused the present anaerobic conditions of the river in its entire route including the first receiving stage that is the José Antonio Alzate Dam (PJAA, becoming a potential source of diseases and a useless water body. In this work we evaluate the treatment efficiency of experimental waste water pond system. The treatment system was constructed with 5 screens which formed 6 internal channels and it had an operation in continuous form by 26 weeks, providing it with continuously polluted water of the Lerma River. We found that the efficiency of reduction of the organic matter reported as BOD5 was 83% and it is carried out in the first channel after 7 days of hydraulic retention verifying that the channels do not work like lagoons in series. With the collected data we calculated, through the application of design equations, the factor of decay of organic matter "k" and the number of dispersion "d", specific for the type of treatment and environmental conditions of the site. The required surface of treatment calculated to reach the efficiency of reduction of the BOD5 obtained experimentally. Thus, a surface of: 1 281.6 hectares distributed in 13 lagoons that can deal with a volume 8 646, 70 m3/h was determined. Since this was a bigger surfaces than that of the dam, the available area was evaluated to make a proposal closer to reallity.

    Background Glucose intolerance is observed more in patients with HCV infection compared with control subjects with liver disease, Initial studies suggested that Hepatitis C virus infection may be an additional risk factor for the development of diabetes mellitus. This study was therefore carried out to determine the correlation of HCV infection and diabetes. Methods Three hundred (300) confirmed type 2 diabetic patients were screened for hepatitis C virus antibodies at the Plateau state specialist hospital, Jos, using Grand diagnostic test strip. Questionnaire comprising of age, sex, family history on diabetes, duration of disease and marital status were issued to subjects. Results Overall result showed that the prevalence rate of HCV infection was 33(11%). In response to diabetic status, females subjects had a higher prevalence of 178(59.3%) compared to males 122(40.7%). Those aged 47–57 recorded the highest seroprevalence 10(30.3%) to the Hepatitis C Virus, while Patients without family history of diabetes showed a higher seroprevalence of 13(39.4%). Subjects who never had any blood transfusion recorded a prevalence rate of 6(18.2%). Marital status showed no significant difference [(P = 0.275; P.0.05)]. Considering duration of developing diabetes, patients within the range of 1–10 years diabetic status recorded the highest prevalence rate 25(75.8%) compared to other ranges considered. Conclusion This study hence, suggests a relatively strong association between HCV infection and diabetes, this therefore call for an urgent approach strategy in the control and management of this disease of the endocrine system.

    The concept of place becomes a central element in the conceptualization of a postwar architecture, which strives to surpass the coordinates of the Modern Movement. It is a concept used by Christian Norberg-Schulz, as a means of overcoming the concepts of his master Siegfried Giedion. From the general idea of a universal space we have evolved into the specific idea of a place. But the complexity of the concept of place lies in that it is neither generic nor universal; its essence lies rather in learning and getting used to the context and its process.
    We start out from two hypotheses. The first is that the idea of place that develops in Latin and Latin American cultures has Mediterranean roots, from which the Modern archetypes are capable of incorporating contributions from specific places.
    The second and complementary hypothesis would be that the experience of a place develops in contemporary authors of the 1950's such as Ernesto Nathan Rogers, Enrico Tedeschi, José Antonio Coderch y Lina Bo Bardi, members of what could be called the second modern generation. The text will analyze the ideas found in the writings of these four authors, as well as a milestone work by each one of them in relationship to its site. Of these, two will be public, and two will be private: the refurbishment of the castello Sforzesco in Milan by BBPR, the Mendoza Faculty of Architecture by Enrico Tedeschi, the Casa Ugalde by Coderch and the Casa de Cristal in Sao Paulo by Lina Bo Bardi.

In this sense, the collection can be seen as a peculiar elegy for a part of Valente’s personal and authorial identity; its loss generates a melancholic pattern that encourages an impossible return. The premise of a Galician identity based in deterritorialization, in which a complex reformulation of saudade acquires a special relevance, is shaped by the precarious language.

ABSTRACT: The Spanish exiles from the Civil War who were generously welcomed in México, encountered a country very different from what they expected. However, very few of them dare to express their opinions in public. José Lión Depetre, a diplomat loyal to the Spanish Republic, returned to Spain in 1953 and published a book the following year in which he took on the role as a spokesman for those criticisms and expressed a very peculiar view about the aztec nation. This article analises his work, its motivation and the author´s complex personality who is a clear example of a sector of the exiles which has attracted little attention: that of the returned intellectuals, as well as the consequences that the essay had on the Spain under Franco and on the Spanish exiles in general.

  13. 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

  14. Radioactive orphans in barite-rich chimneys, Axial Caldera, Juan de Fuca Ridge

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Gamma ray measurements on samples from two unusually radioactive barite-rich chimneys on Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge, gave equivalent concentrations of ?0.1% Th and 0.2% U. The gamma ray emitting nuclides in both the Th and U decay series were found to be unsupported by their parents 232Th and 238U and are therefore orphans. Measurements on three chimney fragments showed that 238Th was not in radioactive equilibrium with 238Ra, which allowed their apparent ages and initial 226Ra/228Ra ratios to be determined. Based on the 228Th/228Ra ages of 3 and 6 years for two adjacent samples, a maximum growth rate of 6 cm per year was established. Calculated initial 226Ra/228Ra ratios indicate that the fluids which precipitated the barite took 20 years to acquire their radiochemical signatures from mid-ocean ridge basalts.

  15. Sustainable development and culture - Some reflections for their search in the Alto San Juan

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The economic processes in the upstream San Juan River are determined by decisions taken in cultural frames in which the traditional groups and peasants build in hybrid forms of existence according with their own history and the availability of resources in the territory. In this way, they alternate different production systems that introduce them in different social and economic groups: local, zonal, regional, national and trans national; each one with a specific rationality, impacting in a particular way, in agreement with the system of dominant production over the environment. The features of the society and culture that impact the economic decision making can be revealed and strengthened in a coherent strategy that respects the regional and group specificities and that looks for the sustainable development of the region

    1981-01-01

    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.

    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.

    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.”

    1984-01-01

    Potassium-argon dating of five basalts from the three main islands of the Juan Fernndez (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 asLactorisandThyrsopteris,have apparently dispersed to the islands and survive refugially.

  8. Direct measurements of oceanic crustal density at the Northern Juan de Fuca Ridge

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gilbert, Lisa A.; Johnson, H. Paul

    Density and porosity of oceanic crust are critically important to understanding the circulation of hydrothermal fluid at mid-ocean ridges. To determine these parameters directly, we completed a fixed, on-bottom gravity survey on the Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, which is a well studied spreading center that is both hydrothermally and tectonically active. A Bell-Aerospace gravity meter mounted within the submersible ALVIN was used to make gravity measurements from the floor of the axial valley to the summit of the west axial ridge. Analysis of these data gave a density of 2240150 kg/m for the upper 130 m of crust. Comparison of the outcrop density with that of recovered rock samples resulted in a calculated porosity of 384%. Forward modeling of the seafloor gravity data indicated that both the valley floor and bounding walls have unusually low density crust that is flanked by higher density crust.

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.

    1987-01-01

    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.

  14. Ordovidan K-bentonites in the Precordillera of San Juan and its tectomasmatic significance

    Cingolani, C.A.; Huff, W.; Bergstrom, S.; Kolata, D.

    1997-01-01

    A succession of approximately 35 early Middle Ordovician K-bentonite beds are exposed in the Precordillera region near the town of Jachal, in San Juan Province (at Cerro Viejo and La Chilca sections). They occur in argillaceous limestone in the upper part of the San Juan Limestone and in the interbedded shales and mudstones at the base of the overlying Los Azules Formation. Total thickness of the K-bentonite-bearing interval is 23 m and individual beds range from 1 to 65 cm thick. An essentially Arenig-Llanvirn age for the K-bentonite succession is indicated by the presence of graptolites diagnostic of the Paraglossograptus tentaculatus Zone and conodonts indicating the Eoplacognathus suecicus Zone. The bentonites consist mainly of Rl ordered illite/smectite, characteristic of most of the lower Paleozoic K-bentonites, plus volcanogenic crystals. Similar to other K-bentonites, these probably represent the distal, glass-rich portion of fall-out ash beds derived from collision zone explosive volcanism. The geochemical data and preliminary plots on the magmatic discrimination diagram indicate the parental magma was of rhyolite to trachyandesite composition. Tectonic discrimination diagrams show the setting of Cerro Viejo ash layers as falling on the boundary between volcanic arc and within plate rocks, typical of collision margin felsic volcanic rocks. U-Pb isotope dating for two zircon fractions from one sample show a lower concordia intercept of 461, +7-10 Ma coincident with the biostratigraphic age. Thus, they have important implications for the origin and early history of the allochtonous Precordillera terrane and the Pacific margin of South America. Furthermore, they are potentially important in interpretations of the paleogeographic relations of Laurentia and Gondwana during Ordovician time. ?? 1997 Asociacio??n Geolo??gica Argentina.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes media coverage of the San Juan River conflict between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It is a long-lasting conflict over the shared management of a river basin located along the border between the two countries. In March 2002, the governments of both countries agreed to change their approach from confrontation to co-operation. The aim of this study is to see how the Costa Rican press covered the conflict during confrontation, and after its change to co-operation, in terms of pro-conflict versus pro-co-operation coverage. Two major newspapers were selected: La Nación (LN, and La República (LR. A total of 81 news stories were content analyzed in two different periods of time: July 1998, when the confrontation reignited, and June 2002, after the change to co-operation. The results allow us to identify two trends: 1. A decrease in pro-conflict coverage and an increase in pro-cooperation coverage. 2. A resistance to change to pro-cooperation coverage despite the change to cooperation in the political agenda. The results are useful in assessing Costa Rican press support for cooperation and the de-escalation of conflict. Peace is an important axis in Costa Rican foreign policy. Contrary to findings about the media as policy makers' tools, the two newspapers LN and LR lag behind in favoring the policy that supports co-operation and peace. Thus, the two newspapers endorse media culture's preference for conflict, confrontation and drama. The two newspapers' resistance to change to pro-cooperation coverage also indicates their attachment to seeing the San Juan River basin as a border river. To think about the region as a river basin is still an innovation. Usually innovations generate resistance, so the two newspapers exhibited resistance to the innovation.

  17. Crustal structure of the Central Precordillera of San Juan, Argentina (31S) using teleseismic receiver functions

    The subduction of the Nazca plate under the South American plate around 31S is characterized by flat slab geometry. The (Chilean) Pampean flat slab of Argentina associated with the subduction of the Juan Fernandez ridge lies in a region of a series of foreland uplifts corresponding to the thin-skinned Precordillera and basement cored Sierras Pampeanas ranges. The SIEMBRA project deployed 40 broadband stations in 2008-2009 in both the Precordillera and the Sierras Pampeanas with the aim to foster the understanding of the entire central Andean flat slab region. One of the SIEMBRA station (DOCA) located on the western flank of Sierra de la Invernada in the Central Precordillera appears particularly appropriate to study the crustal structure and eventually detect discontinuities related to terranes establishment. We thus performed a receiver function analysis using teleseismic data recorded at the DOCA station during the SIEMBRA project and from October 2011 to June 2012 using a broadband UNSJ (National University of San Juan) seismic station with the purpose to obtain crustal images with details of the intracrustal structure consistent with a mechanism that could explains both the observed earthquake depths and the uplift pattern in the Central Precordillera. Our results show that the Moho beneath the Precordillera lies at a depth of about 66 km. The Moho signal appears diminished and behaves irregularly as a function of azimuthal orientations. Although this observation could be the result of an irregular geometry it also correlates with the hypothesis of partial eclogitisation in the lower crust. Two mid-crustal discontinuities have also been revealed. The shallower one could correspond to a dcollement level between the Precordilleran strata and the Cuyania basement at 21 km depth. The deeper one which the presence has been matched with a sharp decrease of the crustal seismic activity drove us to the hypothesis of a major change in crustal composition at 36 km. Finally the flat portion of the subducted slab has been imaged lying at about 100 km depth.

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The concentrations and isotopic compositions of U, Th, and Pb in three hydrothermal fluids from the Juan de Fuca Ridge were determined. The samples consisted of 10.2--57.6% of the pure hydrothermal end-members based on Mg contents. The Pb contents of the samples ranged from 34 to 87 ng/g, U from 1.3 to 3.0 ng/g, and Th from 0.2 to 7.7 pg/g. These samples showed large enrichments of Pb and Th relative to deep-sea water and some depletion of U. They did not show coherent relationships with Mg, however, indicating nonideal mixings between the hot hydrothermal fluids and cold ambient seawater. Particles filtered from these hydrothermal fluids contained significant amounts of Th and Pb which may effectively increase the concentration of these elements in the fluids when acidified. The /sup 234/U//sup 238/U values in all samples show a /sup 234/U enrichment relative to the equilibrium value and have a seawater signature. The Pb isotopic composition of the Juan de Fuca hydrothermal fluids resembles that of 21 0N East Pacific Rise and has a uniform mid-ocean ridge basalt signature. The hydrothermal systems at oceanic spreading ridges have circulated through a large volume of basalts. Therefore Pb in these fluids may represent the best average value of the local oceanic crust. From the effects of U deposition from seawater to the crust and Pb extraction from rock to the ocean, the U/Pb ratio in the hydrothermally altered oceanic crust may be increased significantly. copyright American Geophysical Union 1987

    Full Text Available Em Pedro Páramo, de Juan Rulfo, o corvo, o cavalo e o gato são animais que mantêm estreita ligação existencial com o ser humano. A interação ser humano-animal é fundamental para o entendimento de temas filosóficos presentes no romance, como a identidade humana, o outro, a morte. O corvo é o batedor da chegada de Juan Preciado no mundo da morte. O cavalo de Miguel Páramo é o único ser que sofre, verdadeiramente, a morte do seu tutor. O gato é o animal que faz visitas noturnas a Susana San Juan, com quem estabelece um diálogo somente inteligível para os dois. A integração entre personagens humanas e animais em Pedro Páramo mostra a comunicação entre seres pertencentes a diferentes espécies animais. No romance, seres humanos, corvos, cavalos e gatos têm mais semelhanças entre si do que a cultura ocidental antropocêntrica conhece.In Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo, the raven, the horse and the cat are animals that maintain a close existential link to the human beings. In the book, this human being/animal interaction is fundamental to the understanding of philosophical themes such as the identity, the other, and the death. In the story, the raven is the escort of Juan Preciado arrival into the death world. Miguel Páramos’s horse is the only being that genuinely suffers because of the death of its guardian, that is, Miguel’s death. The cat is the animal that make night visits to Susana San Juan to whom it speaks in a way that is understood by the two of them only. The connection between human and animal characters in Pedro Páramo shows the communication among beings that belong to different animal species. In the novel, human beings, ravens, horses, and cats are much more alike than the western anthropocentric culture has it.

  1. Incendio en un hospital en el siglo XVIII: Análisis del acontecimiento descrito por Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes Hospital fire: Analysis as described by Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes

    Full Text Available El trabajo analiza el ámbito de un hecho luctuoso y dramático que se produce en el año 1778, cuando un enorme incendio destruye el Teatro de Comedias del Hospital de Nuestra Señora de Gracia, en Zaragoza. El acontecimiento lo recoge el pintor aragonés Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, en 1808, en la obra conocida como Incendio de un hospital. Se trata de un estudio descriptivo e interpretativo realizado a partir de la obra de Goya y que nosotros relacionaremos con la historia de la enfermería. A través de lo representado, nuestro primer objetivo será evaluar la presencia de enfermería en el contexto, para después conectar el protagonismo de los personajes hospitalizados con el de los encargados de su cuidado en el hospital. El análisis iconográfico nos ha permitido identificar la obra como una composición dinámica en la que, aunque lo más llamativo sea el fuego, el elemento más importante es el ser humano. Llama la atención, en este sentido, no encontrar rastro de la enfermería en la representación, de donde podremos aventurar que la memoria colectiva no dotó de la suficiente identidad a la enfermería de los últimos años del s. XVIII.The paper analyzes the context of a dramatic and tragic event that occurs in the year 1778, when a huge fire destroyed the Comedy Theater Hospital in Nuestra Señora de Gracia Hospital, Zaragoza. The event describes the Aragonese painter Francisco Jose de Goya and Luciente in 1808, in the play known as ‘a hospital fire'. This is a descriptive and interpretive study originating from the works of Goya and we related to the history of nursing. Through this representation, our first objective is to assess the presence of nursing in this context and then connect the role of the hospitalised people with their carers in the hospital. Iconographic analysis has enabled us to identify the work as a dynamic composition in which, although the most striking thing is the fire, the most important element is the human being. In this sense, it is surprising that there is no trace of the nursing profession in this portrayal, from which we deduct that the collective memory did not consider nursing to have enough identity in the late s. XVIII.

    Boonekamp, P.; De Coninck, H. (eds.)

    2011-07-15

    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?.

En los resultados obtenidos se logró identificar que las representaciones sociales por parte de los padres acerca de la sexualidad, no son claras, persiste el desconocimiento en los temas y cohibiciones al hablar con sus hijos, de igual forma se evidencia que las representaciones si influyen de cierta manera en la vida sexual de sus hijos, pues ellos infieren un desconocimiento total del tema y no tienen noción de un guía que los pueda orientar pues la información recibida sobre sexualidad es insuficiente. Lo encontrado en la primera fase, permitirá profundizar aspectos relevantes y de importancia en la aplicación de instrumentos que se realizara en la segunda fase. ABSTRACT In the article looks on the social representations of parents with teens about sexuality, considering sexuality as an important in human life issue, adheres or not precisely on the stage adolescence, will have two phases, the first phase of the research was carried out by two applications in two different contexts with 16 participants including 8 parents and 8 adolescents aged between 12 and 17 years old living in San Jose de Cucuta, where semi-structured interviews, focus groups and field diary was applied. In the results it was possible to identify the social representations of parents about sexuality, are not clear, ignorance on the issues and inhibitions to talk to their children, just as it is evident that the representations if influence persists certain way in the sex lives of their children because they infer a total ignorance of the subject and have no notion of a guide who can guide because the information received about sexuality is insufficient. The findings of the first phase will deepen relevant and important aspects in the implementation of instruments to be held in the second phase.

    2002-12-01

    San José State University's Geology Department has implemented and maintained a two-fold approach to teacher education efforts. Both pre-service and in-service populations have been participants in a wide variety of content-area enrichment, training, and professional development endeavors. Spearheading these initiatives is the Bay Area Earth Science Institute (BAESI); organized in 1990, this program has served more than 1,000 teachers in weekend- and summer-workshops, and field trips. It sustains a network of Bay Area teachers via its Website (http://www.baesi.org), newsletter, and allows teachers to borrow classroom-pertinent materials through the Earth Science Resource Center. The Department has developed a course offering in Earth Systems Science (Geology 103), which targets pre-service teachers within SJSU's multiple-subject credential program. The curriculum satisfies California subject matter competency requirements in the geosciences, and infuses pedagogy into the syllabus. Course activities are intended for pre-service and in-service teachers' adaptation in their own classrooms. The course has been enhanced by two SJSU-NASA collaborations (Project ALERT and the Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum), which have facilitated incorporation of NASA data, imagery, and curricular materials. SJSU's M.A. in Natural Science, a combined effort of the Departments of Geology, Biology, and Program in Science Education, is designed to meet the multi-disciplinary needs of single-subject credential science teachers by providing a flexible, individually-tailored curriculum that combines science course work with a science education project. Several BAESI teachers have extended their Earth science knowledge and teaching skills through such projects as field guides to local sites of geological interest; lab-based modules for teaching about earthquakes, rocks and minerals, water quality, and weather; and interactive online materials for students and teachers of science. In keeping with SJSU's alliance with NASA Centers, the Geology Department is proud to offer ESSEA online courses as part of its multi-dimensional approach to Earth Systems teacher education. SJSU plans to offer both the middle- and high-school courses to a national audience, beginning spring 2003. The addition of ESSEA courses will complement existing projects, and will help to build a stronger Earth Systems-savvy community.

We concentrate on the writings of Juan Luis Segundo, one of the main exponents of this theology, since, in our view, he is the theologian who most explicitly exposed the question of ideology and its relationship to faith in the Latin American context.

  2. Aproximaciones culturales al mito de Don Juan en las obras de Tirso de Molina, Molière y Zorrilla

    Full Text Available This article examines how the myth of Don Juan that has been retold and heard in several countries beyond Spain – France, Italy, England, the Americas – continues to seduce and fascinate both the general public and lovers of literature alike. The influence of this myth is such that these days almost everyone is familiar with his tongue, as the way a snake does with its gaze, always after women, ever in pursuit until he conquers them. The smooth evolution of this myth over almost four centuries has suffered great changes. For this reason, an examination of the changing personality of Don Juan through time seems appropriate, in what concerns to arrogance, ostentation, and theatricality characterization not only the seventeenth century persona, but also his modern incarnations. It is this very permanence of the game, which compels us to look for what is behind the mask.

    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.

  5. The Death of the Storyteller and the Poetics of (Un)Containment: Juan Rulfo’s El llano en llamas

    Critics have often read Juan Rulfo's El Llano en llamas (1953) as a return to the oral storytelling tradition. My contention, however, is that his short stories constitute an eminently modern break from cultural, narrative tradition—or what Ángel Rama has termed transculturation. I first explore how the death of the storyteller, prophesied by Walter Benjamin (1936), is staged within Rulfo's stories; and second, how Rulfo uses fragmentation as a literary device, which in turn potentiates furth...

    Low-temperature (typically 5–75°C) fluid, commonly referred to as "diffuse" hydrothermal flow, emanates from fractures over a significant portion of the Juan de Fuca Ridge seafloor in the Northeast Pacific Ocean (Kelley et al., 2012, in this issue). Although some fraction of the diffuse effluent becomes entrained relatively quickly into nearby plumes from high-temperature sources, a number of studies suggest that a significant portion flows laterally as discrete low-level plumes that remain d...

  14. Did the Nascent Yellowstone Plume Interact With the Juan de Fuca Plate?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Camp, V. E.; Hanan, B. B.

    2006-12-01

    The mantle plume recently resolved by Yuan and Dueker (2005) and Waite et al. (2006) beneath the Yellowstone caldera to a depth of 500 km, appears to verify the hotspot-track model of Pierce and Morgan (1992) for the generation of similar, age-progressive calderas lying along the Snake River Plain trend. Plate reconstruction places the plume near the McDermitt caldera along the Oregon-Nevada border at ~16.5 Ma, coincident in both time and space with the earliest eruptions of the Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG). As proposed by Pierce et al. (2002), the plume may well have interacted with the Juan de Fuca plate at this time. When corrected for 20% Basin and Range extension since 20 Ma, plume-plate interaction would have occurred at any subduction angle less than 47 degrees. Such a shallow dip is consistent with a broad region of Oligo-Miocene calc-alkaline to mildly alkalic volcanism that extended across the breadth of eastern Oregon immediately before plume emplacement. Petrologic clues to plume-plate interaction should be inherent in the distinct geochemical signatures of the CRBG formations. Flood-basalt provinces worldwide are dominated by olivine tholeiites, with minor picritic lavas. The CRBG, however, is the lone exception, with ~65% of the province composed of basaltic andesites of the Grande Ronde formation. Such high-Si, high-Fe/Mg rocks cannot be generated by partial melting of mantle peridotite, nor can they easily be derived from fractional crystallization of peridotite partial melts. There is a growing consensus that they were derived instead from the melting of an eclogitic or pyroxenetic source rock at mantle depths of ~70-110 km (Wright et al., 1989; Cordery et al., 1997; Takahahshi et al., 1998; Yaxley and Green, 1998). Such a source component could exist as blobs or streaks of ancient oceanic crust incorporated into a rising mantle plume (Takahahshi et al., 1998), or as pyroxenite slabs derived from the delamination and sinking of mafic lower crust (Hales et al., 2005). Plume-slab interaction, however, provides a third possibility. Inherent in such a model is the stratification of source rocks that we believe more accurately reflects the geochemical evidence for abrupt changes in source melting with time, as seen in the evolving CRBG stratigraphy. The isotopic data is consistent with the sequential melting and mixing of three source components: oceanic lithosphere of the Juan de Fuca plate (both mantle and crust), mantle plume, and Archean continental lithosphere. The bulk of the CRBG lavas may be the result of the spontaneous melting of Juan de Fuca MORB with a very minor amount of pelagic sediment. The entirely aphyric Grande Ronde flows appear to be superheated lavas, consistent with high mantle temperatures imposed on a MORB source having both solidus and liquidus temperatures that lie below the peridotite solidus over the presumed pressure range of melting.

Creemos que esta investigacin puede llenar un vaco historiogrfico y ser una herramienta til al conocimiento histrico. Las fuentes esenciales para este anlisis han sido diarios provinciales y nacionales, peridicos del movimiento cooperativo, libros de actas de las instituciones donde actu el protagonista, y algunas entrevistas que pudimos realizar.Some years ago the historic biography did not interest historians, who had lost interest over the study centered into the individual and his context and felt attractted to the complete social idea.

This article takes form in this new line of historic biography centering in Juan Acosta's figure, a pioneer of argentinian rural cooperativism that had a exceptional performance in Cordoba's province. The central objetive of this work is to bring back the memory and discourse of an essential actor of the rural world that has not been adequatelly considered, or even studied in a systematic way.

    Full Text Available John of Segovia (1393-1458 is together with Nicolaus Cusanus one of the most important theologians of the 15th century. His struggle for peace and consensus during the council of Basel culminated in his engagement for interreligious communication in the last years of his life. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453, he prepared a new approach towards the Islam. Not crusade, but interreligious communication based on thorough knowledge of the religion of the other should result in peace, either through converting the other or at least convincing him to stop warfare. Therefore John of Segovia initiated a new translation of the Qur’ān into Spanish, which he himself translated into Latin. This article outlines the history of this famous project and illustrates its main characteristics with examples taken from fragments of this first polyglot translation of the Qur’ān.Junto a Nicolás de Cusa, Juan de Segovia (1393-1458 fue uno de los teólogos más importantes del siglo XV.

Después de la caída de Constantinopla en el año 1453, preparó un nuevo acercamiento hacia el Islam. Ya no se trataba de una cruzada, sino de realizar una comunicación entre religiones basada en un conocimiento profundo de la religión del otro, lo que creía que resultaría en una paz a través de la conversión del otro o, al menos, a través del convencimiento de que dejaría la guerra. Juan de Segovia comenzó así la tarea de traducir de nuevo el Corán al castellano, que él mismo había traducido al latín.

    Full Text Available The comedy of characters was born in the hands of Ruiz de Alarcón as he achieved that from his first comedies, those of enredo, the main characters learnt to govern their own actions without any classification. That is the reason why the critics, without any further analysis, have described his theatre as 'moral'. Nevertheless, we are talking about a dramatist who stages mirages, unmasks tyrants disguised as level-headed monarchs, and frustrates the development of those court favourites who were egoists and ill by their passions. At the same time, the omission of providence becomes another kind of protest. All the court on the stage to ridicule with irony and punish their bad habits and delusions. When he finally discovered the politics of the conde-duque de Olivares, he decided to give up theatre. Therefore, we discover another Juan Ruiz de Alarcón never suspected: the dramatist who believed in the program of reformation that the conde-duque de Olivares, court favourite of King Philip IV, wanted to impose to a «patria doliente», name given by the dramatist to the Spain of the first half of the 17th century.La comedia de caracteres nace en manos de Ruiz de Alarcón porque consigue que, a partir de sus primeras comedias, las de enredo, los protagonistas aprendan a regir sus propias acciones al margen de tipificación alguna. Motivo por el que la crítica, sin entrar en más análisis, haya calificado su teatro como 'moral'. Sin embargo, nos encontramos ante un dramaturgo que escenifica espejismos; desenmascara a tiranos disfrazados de monarcas ecuánimes; frustra la trayectoria de privados egoístas y sedientos de poder o enfermos por sus pasiones; mientras que, al mismo tiempo, la omisión de la providencia se convierte, también, en otra clase de protesta. Toda la corte sobre las tablas para, con ironía, ridiculizar y castigar sus vicios y delirios. Cuando por fin descubrió los de la política del conde-duque de Olivares, decidió abandonar el teatro. De este modo se nos descubre a otro Juan Ruiz de Alarcón nunca sospechado: el dramaturgo que creyó en el programa de la reformación que el privado de Felipe IV quiso imponer a una «patria doliente», como el propio dramaturgo denominó a aquella España de la primera mitad del siglo XVII.
