The tree that has been plantedin the memory of Jos near building 892 in Prévessin. We are missing our colleague and friend. We are grateful for all your help, support, messages and presence at the ceremony for Jos in Geneva. This has brought consolation to our family. The Kuipers Family   Many of you contributed to the Turkana Education Fund in memory of Jos. Here is an excerpt of the message we received from the coordinator of the fund: The Turkana area, in the north of Kenya in a region where people are Essentially nomads and pastoralists, recurrently suffering from severe drought conditions. The locals cannot afford the fees for education at the secondary level. One of the main supporters of the fund was Jos Kuipers. His words to me were, 'if you have any unfilled sponsorships or if people have left without finishing their sponsorships, then call on me and I'll fill the gap.' This he has done since I took over the administration 4 years ago, and in addition in 2001 he donated 4000CHF...

Oxyhemoglobin Saturation in Sickle Cell Anaemic Children (Steady State) Using Pulse Oxymetry In Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Comparing the oxyhemoglobin saturation in stable sickle cell anaemic children with those of healthy Hemoglobin AA controls in Jos. A review of 141 cases and 141 controls was undertaken. Hypoxemia is a common event in SCA and has been associated with sickling, cellular damage, reduced longevity. The causes of hypoxaemia include infections, dehydration, cold and high altitude (these are peculiar features of Jos, a town in Nigeria). Hence the avoidance or detection and correction of hypoxaemia are of major importance in the management of SCA. The study was carried out with the aim of assessing the difference in oxyhemoglobin saturation between healthy SCA and Hemoglobin AA children in Jos using pulse oximetry and also the relevance in clinical practice of routinely monitoring oxyhemoglobin saturation in healthy SCA children in the clinic, Descriptive study. The cases were recruited from the sickle cell clinic at the Jos University Teaching Hospital while the Controls were age and sex matched non-sickle cell volunteers in the surrounding communities in Jos town. Oxygen saturation was determined using pulse oxymetry. Anthropometry was also done. Prevalence of hypoxemia (PO2<95%) was 51% in the cases and 16% in the controls (p<0.0005). Mean oxyhemoglobin saturation in the cases was 93.5%±5.4 and that for the controls was 96.5%±5.3 (p<0.0005). Mode of oxygen saturation for both cases and controls was 98%. The mean oxygen saturation was lowest among the school and the preschool age groups in the SCA and control groups respectively and lower in the older age groups than in the younger age groups. The SCA boys generally had the lowest mean oxygen saturation (92.68%). Their nutritional status had no significant effect on their oxygen saturation (p-values 0.28). The mean oxyhemoglobin saturation in stable SCA children was significantly low. This was particularly true for the boys in the school age group. Hence there is need to routinely monitor the oxyhemoglobin saturation of stable SCA patients, in the clinic, paying closer attention to the school age boys, in order to improve the morbidity and mortality rates in SCA children.

Comparison of pregnancy outcome between teenage and older primigravidae in jos university teaching hospital, Jos, North-Central Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

The conundrum of polytrauma on the jos plateau.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

BACKGROUND: The leading cause of morbidity and mortality from the end of the first year of life to the forty fifth is trauma. This is true worldwide but especially so in our environment. In no other situation are the complexities of the management of trauma more manifest than in the context of polytrauma. For this we undertake to study the problem of polytrauma in Jos. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency and pattern of occurrence of poly trauma in Jos university teaching hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients presenting with polytrauma to the casualty department were prospectively studied. Data regarding demographics and a detailed description of injuries were entered into a proforma and collated over a one-year period. RESULTS: A total of 131 patients were studied. There were 103 males and 28 females giving a male to female ratio of 3.7:1. The ages ranged from 2 to 61 years with a mean of 28.4 ±12.4 years. Road traffic accident was the most common aetiology in 113 (86.3%) patients, while falls 7 (5.3%), gunshots 5 (3.8%) and assaults 2 (1.6%) were observed. The most frequently encountered injuries were head, extremity and chest in 71.8%, 68.5% and 29.2% respectively. The combinations most frequently observed were head\\extremity (43.5%), head\\chest (17.6%) and chest\\extremity (10.7%) injuries. Complications were observed in 20.6% while death occurred in 7.6%. CONCLUSION: Polytrauma occurs with sufficient frequency to warrant serious attention. As majority follow RTA, there is a need to intensify measures aimed at improving road safety. There is also a need to establish pre-hospital care\\ambulance services. It is suggested that improved orthopaedic and neurosurgical care will lead to improved polytrauma care and most importantly, the establishment of dedicated trauma teams in tertiary institutions is proposed as a prelude to the establishment of regional trauma centers.

Malignant colorectal tumours: a ten year review in Jos, Nigeria.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

One hundred and forty-four cases of histologically confirmed colorectal cancer in patients managed at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) over a 10 year period from January, 1989 to January, 1999 is discussed with special consideration to incidence, distribution and unfavourable prognosis. Altogether, 144 patients were treated for colorectal carcinoma. Eighty-seven were males while fifty-seven were females, giving a male to female ratio of 1.51:1. The mean age was 44.3 years. The commonest clinical presenting features were weight loss, bloody mucoid diarrhoea, anorectal mass, anaemia, low-back pain and constipation/increased noise in the abdomen, present for not less than 3 months. The rectum and rectosigmoid junction were the commonly affected sites. All, except four patients, had advanced disease at first presentation. Treatment was basically palliative with only 43.5 percent of those offered such treatment alive at 6 months while 25 percent had died. Prognosis is unfavourable. Though, predisposing factors are not clear, promotion of educational programme highlighting the dangers of concealing chronic large bowel symptoms and screening efforts will most probably reduce morbidity and mortality rates associated with this condition.

Circumcision: experience at a private hospital in jos, Nigeria.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

BACKGROUND: Most circumcisions in our environment are carried out in children for religious and cultural reasons. The PlastiBell device has been used for several decades, though some complications have been associated with its use. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This study examines the safety and acceptability of the PlastiBell device, which was used in circumcision in the majority of patients studied. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty consecutive patients, who had circumcision at a private medical facility in Jos, Nigeria, over a 2 year period, were reported. Their ages, method of circumcision, size of PlastiBell device used, incidence of complications and acceptability of procedure to parents were documented. RESULTS: In this study, all patients below 42 days old had their circumcision done with the PlastiBell device. Complications seen with this device included hemorrhage in one patient following a slipped out device. In 49 (98%) of the patients, the mothers were satisfied with the outcome of the procedures. CONCLUSION: The PlastiBell device can be safely used for circumcisions in children below 42 days old.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Depression among medical outpatients with diabetes: A cross-sectional study at Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Clinical depression is a common problem among patients who seek medical care, and diabetic patients with comorbid depression tend to have higher health care cost. A dearth of literature exists on depression among diabetics in Nigeria. The objectives of the study were to determine the prevalence of depression among diabetic patients and to determine the sociodemographic correlates of depression among diabetics. Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted between December 2005 and April 2006 among patients who attend the diabetes clinic of Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) with a laboratory and clinical evidence of diabetes mellitus. A semi-structured questionnaire was used to record the sociodemographic data of each consecutive patient followed by an interview by psychiatrists using the depression module of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-I V axis I disorder (SCID). Subsequently, the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HDRS) was used to determine the severity of symptoms among subjects diagnosed with depression according to DSM-I V criteria. Results: Thirty-one of the 160 subjects fulfilled the DSM-IV criteria for the diagnosis of a major depressive episode giving a 1-year prevalence rate of 19.4%. Depression was significantly correlated with sex (P=0.001) with a female-to-male ratio of 3:1 and was also significantly associated with unmarried diabetics (P=0.002) and those who had a poor relationship with their partners (P=0.04). No significant association was found between depression and the respondents? age (P=0.216), educational qualifications (P=0.268), employment status (P=0.84), place of residence (P=0.80), household composition (P=0.77), and monthly income (P=0.110). Conclusion: Depression is a common psychiatric disorder among diabetic subjects in this environment. It was suggested that diabetic patients be screened for depression to allow for early detection and treatment.

JosD1, a membrane-targeted deubiquitinating enzyme, is activated by ubiquitination and regulates membrane dynamics, cell motility, and endocytosis.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

The functional diversity of deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) is not well understood. The MJD family of DUBs consists of four cysteine proteases that share a catalytic "Josephin" domain. The family is named after the DUB ATXN3, which causes the neurodegenerative disease Machado-Joseph disease. The two closely related Josephin domain-containing (JosD) proteins 1 and 2 consist of little more than the Josephin domain. To gain insight into the properties of Josephin domains, we investigated JosD1 and JosD2. JosD1 and JosD2 were found to differ fundamentally in many respects. In vitro, only JosD2 can cleave ubiquitin chains. In contrast, JosD1 cleaves ubiquitin chains only after it is monoubiquitinated, a form of posttranslational-dependent regulation shared with ATXN3. A significant fraction of JosD1 is monoubiquitinated in diverse mouse tissues. In cell-based studies, JosD2 localizes to the cytoplasm whereas JosD1 preferentially localizes to the plasma membrane, particularly when ubiquitinated. The membrane occupancy by JosD1 suggests that it could participate in membrane-dependent events such as cell motility and endocytosis. Indeed, time-lapse imaging revealed that JosD1 enhances membrane dynamics and cell motility. JosD1 also influences endocytosis in cultured cells by increasing the uptake of endocytic markers of macropinocytosis while decreasing those for clathrin- and caveolae-mediated endocytosis. Our results establish that two closely related DUBs differ markedly in activity and function and that JosD1, a membrane-associated DUB whose activity is regulated by ubiquitination, helps regulate membrane dynamics, cell motility, and endocytosis.

Juan Ruiz político  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Más bien que en la vida amorosa del Arcipreste de Hita, de la que no sabemos nada, quizá tengamos que ver en el importantísimo conflicto con incidencias dinásticas virtualmente devastadoras entre María de Portugal, la mujer legítima de Alfonso XI, y Leonor de Guzmán, su concubina oficial, o, si se quiere, en el “loco amor” del rey y en el partido (el de María) que –sugiero- escogió Juan Ruiz, la causa del encarcelamiento del autor del Libro de buen amor. También se comprendería que dicho contexto haya dado lugar a una obra que, tan ortodoxa en su sententia como genialmente paradójica en su littera, no tergiversa sobre los fundamentos a la vez sociales y espirituales del “buen amor” como tampoco se muestra muy propicia a la realeza tal y como la encarnaba entonces Alfonso XI de Castilla.Plutôt que dans la vie amoureuse de l’Archiprêtre de Hita, dont nous ne savons rien, peut-être faudrait-il voir dans le grave conflit aux incidences dynastiques virtuellement dévastatrices qui opposa Marie de Portugal, femme légitime d’Alphonse XI, et Aliénor de Guzmán, sa concubine officielle, ou, si l’on veut, dans le « fol amour » du roi et dans le parti (celui de Marie) que choisit –je le suggère– Juan Ruiz, la cause de l’emprisonnement de l’auteur du Libro de buen amor. L’on comprendrait aussi que ce contexte ait donné lieu à une œuvre qui, aussi orthodoxe dans sa sententia que génialement paradoxale dans sa littera, ne tergiverse nullement sur les fondements sociaux et spirituels du « bon amour » mais ne se montre pas non plus favorable à une royauté telle que l’incarne alors Alphonse XI de Castille.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Marketing San Juan Basin gas  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

Full Text Available La communauté de San Juan est reconnue depuis 1939. Une première partie concerne l?organisation de la reducción de San Juan vers le milieu du XVIe siècle. Le poids fiscal s?exerce durement sur le village et la crise est générale dans toute la vallée du Chancay au XVIIe. siècle. La christianisation des habitants est définitive au milieu de ce même siècle. C?est vers la fin du XVIIe siècle et durant tout le XVIIIe que se multiplient les conflits entre San Juan et les villages voisins liés aux terrains de pâture et à la possession de l?eau. La deuxième partie du travail concerne les rapports de la communauté de San Juan avec le Pérou contemporain : contrainte fiscale toujours très lourde durant la fin de l?époque coloniale, exactions des militaires juste avant l?indépendance. La période républicaine voit toujours les conflits avec les villages voisins mais aussi la naissance de familles qui cherchent à retirer le maximum de la communauté. Les terres sont divisées et attribuées : la détérioration de l?organisation communale traditionnelle est manifeste. L4es conflits se multiplient entre petits propriétaires, mais aussi avec les haciendas voisines : c?est l?apparition d?une véritable lutte de classes. La situation actuelle est incertaine, le poids de l?économie marchande se développe avec l?exode des jeunes. Que sera la communauté San Juan à la fin de ce siècle? La comunidad de San Juan está reconocida desde 1939. La primera parte concierne a la organización de la 'reducción' de San Juan hacia mediados del siglo XVI. El peso fiscal se ejerce duramente sobre el pueblo y en el siglo XVII la crisis es general en todo el valle de Chancay. Hacia mediados del mismo siglo la cristianización de los habitantes es definitiva.

Haemoglobin variants among voluntary blood donors in Jos, Nigeria: the implications on blood transfusion.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

INTRODUCTION: The normal haemoglobin is an efficient transporter of oxygen to the tissues and carbondioxide from tissues to the lungs for elimination. Various abnormal haemoglobin variants including, the sickle cell diseases, have been described with varying sickling tendencies. AIMS: This study aimed to determine the haemoglobin variants among voluntary blood donors in Jos. METHOD: Records of the age, sex, Haemoglobin level, and the haemoglobin genotype of all voluntary blood donors who donated blood at the National Blood Transfusion Service Centre, Jos, Nigeria between January 2011 and April 2012; and their haemoglobin levels and protein electrophoresis determined, were reviewed. RESULTS: A total of 937 blood donors, 658 (70.23%) males and 279 (29.79%) females, mean age 32.4 years, donated blood voluntarily, their haemoglobin electrophoretic patterns determined by alkaline cellulose acetate electrophoresis. Donor blood haemoglobin levels were determined by automation. Haemoglobin protein electrophoretic patterns identified among our donors were 77.70% AA, 21.88% AS, 0.22% SC, 0.11% AC and 0.11% SS. Mean haemoglobin levels of the donors according to their haemoglobin proteins electrophoretic patterns were, 150.4 +/- 12.5 gms/l for AA, 151.9 +/- 13.8 gms/l for AS and 131.1 +/- 5.0 gms/l for haemoglobin SC. CONCLUSION: Determination of haemoglobin protein electrophoretic patterns of blood unit for transfusion could enhance selective blood issuing based on recipient's haemoglobin type.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Prevalence and associated risk factors for gestational diabetes in Jos, North-central, Nigeria.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

OBJECTIVE: The study aimed at determining the prevalence and associated risk factors for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) among antenatal women attending the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), Jos, Nigeria. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was done between February and April 2009 among 265 pregnant women enrolled from the antenatal clinic of JUTH. Screening was done between 24 and 28 weeks' gestation with a 50 g, 1-h glucose challenge test (GCT). Those with plasma glucose concentration >7.8 mmol/l were then given 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) to confirm the diagnosis of GDM. Plasma glucose measurements were performed with glucose oxidase method. GDM was diagnosed according to the WHO criteria. All relevant data including demographic information, obstetric history, and risk factors for GDM, GCT and OGTT results were collected and analyzed using Epi Info version 3.5.1, CDC, Atlanta, USA. RESULTS: Of the 265 pregnant women enrolled, 253 subjects were eligible for screening out of which, 28 (11.1 %) had positive GCT >7.8 mmol/l. The prevalence of GDM was 8.3 % (21/253); 95 % CI 5.2-12.4. The pattern of glucose tolerance in the study population indicated that 232 (91.7 %) had normal glucose tolerance, 6.7 % had impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) while 1.6 % had overt diabetes. Previous history of fetal macrosomia was independently associated with GDM (adjusted OR 11.1; 95 % CI 2.93-42.12, P = 0.0004). CONCLUSION: The prevalence of GDM was relatively high among our antenatal population. Women with previous history of fetal macrosomia have a higher likelihood of having GDM and should be screened.

A longitudinal survey of African animal trypanosomiasis in domestic cattle on the Jos Plateau, Nigeria: prevalence, distribution and risk factors.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

BACKGROUND: Trypanosomiasis is a widespread disease of livestock in Nigeria and a major constraint to the rural economy. The Jos Plateau, Nigeria was free from tsetse flies and the trypanosomes they transmit due to its high altitude and the absence of animal trypanosomiasis attracted large numbers of cattle-keeping pastoralists to inhabit the plateau. The Jos Plateau now plays a significant role in the national cattle industry, accommodating approximately 7% of the national herd and supporting 300,000 pastoralists and over one million cattle. However, during the past two decades tsetse flies have invaded the Jos Plateau and animal trypanosomiasis has become a significant problem for livestock keepers. METHODS: In 2008 a longitudinal two-stage cluster survey on the Jos Plateau. Cattle were sampled in the dry, early wet and late wet seasons. Parasite identification was undertaken using species-specific polymerase chain reactions to determine the prevalence and distribution bovine trypanosomiasis. Logistic regression was performed to determine risk factors for disease. RESULTS: The prevalence of bovine trypanosomiasis (Trypanosoma brucei brucei, Trypanosoma congolense savannah, Trypanosoma vivax) across the Jos Plateau was found to be high at 46.8% (39.0 -- 54.5%) and significant, seasonal variation was observed between the dry season and the end of the wet season. T. b. brucei was observed at a prevalence of 3.2% (1% -- 5.5%); T. congolense at 27.7% (21.8% - 33.6%) and T. vivax at 26.7% (18.2% - 35.3%). High individual variation was observed in trypanosomiasis prevalence between individual villages on the Plateau, ranging from 8.8% to 95.6%. Altitude was found to be a significant risk factor for trypanosomiasis whilst migration also influenced risk for animal trypanosomiasis. CONCLUSIONS: Trypanosomiasis is now endemic on the Jos Plateau showing high prevalence in cattle and is influenced by seasonality, altitude and migration practices. Attempts to successfully control animal trypanosomiasis on the Plateau will need to take into account the large variability in trypanosomiasis infection rates between villages, the influence of land use, and husbandry and management practices of the pastoralists, all of which affect the epidemiology of the disease.

¿Hay humor en Juan Montalvo?  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este ensayo analiza la prosa panfletaria de Juan Montalvo desde el punto de vista del humor. Montalvo, además de dedicar muchas páginas a disertar sobre la risa, buscó con frecuencia insertar efectos humorísticos en su estilo, encaminados a ridiculizar a sus enemigos políticos. ¿Hasta qué punto un autor eminentemente moralista, un libelista cáustico como Montalvo, que echa mano del insulto, la burla y el sarcasmo, puede considerarse un humorista? Para comprender esta ambigüedad entre un Montalvo solemne y otro burlón, entre un Montalvo austero y otro irónico se analizan aquí ciertos recursos literarios que utiliza este autor y con los que provoca efectos que lindan con lo humorístico.This work analyses Juan Montalvo's pamphlet prose from a humorous perspective. To what extent can an eminently caustic moralist author as Montalvo, who uses insult, mockery and sarcasm, be considered a humorist? In order to understand this ambiguity between a solemn Montalvo and a Mocking one, between an austere and an ironic one, certain resources used by the author are analysed, resources that border on humour.

The use of town refuse ash in urban agriculture around Jos, Nigeria: health and environmental risks.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

This paper reports on a study that examines the health and environmental risks of using town refuse ash in urban vegetable production in Jos, Nigeria, in terms of heavy metal accumulation in the food chain. Soil and crop samples, collected from five study farms, and samples of the river water used for irrigation, were analysed for seven heavy metals Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Ni, Cd and Pb. On the basis of the field data the paper discusses: (1) the potential soil deficiencies and toxicities; (2) the probable links between soil heavy metal levels and fertilisation practices; (3) the heavy metal concentrations in crop tissue in relation to crop growth and human health. The findings suggest that soil concentrations of the seven metals fall within 'typical' soil levels, and that there should not be any problems of either toxicities or deficiencies for crop growth. There was evidence of slight accumulation of Zn, Cu and Cd on some of the farms with a history of town refuse ash use. However, in all farms lettuce crops contained very large concentrations of Fe, and Pb concentrations that were 20 to 40 times higher than the WHO/FAO maximum recommended level in leafy vegetables for human consumption. The Cd content of carrot tissue was 10 times higher than the WHO/FAO recommended limit. The relatively small number of soil and crop samples precluded any formal attempt at correlating the concentrations of heavy metals found in the vegetable crops with the farm levels. Nevertheless, the data suggested that these were not linked. The paper goes on to consider various potential sources of the metals found in the crops, including irrigation water, town refuse ash and air-borne dust, and discusses additional health and environmental risks pertaining to the use of town refuse ash. Undoubtedly, the heavy Pb and Cd contamination of certain crops indicates the urgent need for future studies to ascertain the precise source of these metals, and although the practice of using town refuse ash does not appear to have resulted in large-scale contamination of soil in the farming area, there are a number of unsafe practices associated with it that call for the identification of strategies for the safe utilisation of urban waste in Jos.

Serum glucose level of healthy adolescents within Bukuru metropolis, Jos South Local Government Area, Plateau State, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Adaobi Ifeoma Ekwempu1, Zwalnan S Wuyep2, Bitrus Longkem3 1Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, University of Jos, Jos, Plateau State, 2Hospital Management Board, Jos, Plateau State, 3Department of Chemical Pathology, Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria Purpose: This study was designed to determine the blood glucose level of healthy adolescents living in the southern region of Plateau State in northern Nigeria. Design: The study screened apparently healthy adolescents to identify individuals at high risk of developing diabetes mellitus. Methods and materials: Individuals who were confirmed healthy and not on any form of medication were enrolled in the study after the administration of a questionnaire which ruled out any form of aliment such as fever, gastroenteritis, and malaria. The serum glucose level was quantified using the glucose oxidase reagent. Data generated were analyzed using Excel 2007 (Microsoft®, Redmond, WA) and Student’s t-test for an established normal range. Results: The age distribution showed that those aged 14–16 years had a mean serum glucose level of 4.8 ± 1.11 mmol/L, while in those aged 17–19 years it was 4.9 ± 1.115 mmol/L, with a standard error of the mean of 0.17 and 0.15, respectively. The mean glucose level, weight, and height of the enrollees were 4.8 ± 1.12 mmol/L, 56.6 ± 6.20 kg, and 1.6 ± 0.009 m, respectively. The mean serum glucose of those from the Berom tribe and other tribes was 4.9 ± 1.21 mmol/L and 4.8 ± 1.15 mmol/L, respectively. Analysis of the mean glucose level with respect to sex, age, tribe, weight, and height of the established normal mean resulted in a P value of < 0.05, which was not significant. Conclusion: There was no significant difference in the serum glucose level of enrolled subjects. It was also observed that there was no significant difference between the glucose level based on the different tribes, sex, weight, and height of all enrolled subjects. Since glucose is involved with various body metabolic processes and is also an analyte of interest in diabetes mellitus, screening of adolescents would reduce the incidence of the disease. Keywords: Blood glucose, adolescents, diabetes mellitus

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Sero-survey of rubella IgM antibodies was carried out among children aged 0-10 years in Jos, Nigeria. Blood samples were collected from the subjects and sera extracted. Of the 93(100%) assayed for the rubella IgM antibody, 42(45.2%) were seropositive for rubella IgM antibody while 51(54.8%) were seronegative. A breakdown of the seropositive subjects reveals that 14(15.1%) of the infected children were males while 28(30.1%) were females. Those subjects within the age groups of 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 years had the highest prevalence of 8(8.6%) followed by those within the age groups of 7-8, 9-10 years with 7(7.5%). Blood transfusion as a risk factor did not show any significant influence on the status of the subjects. The demographic data of the mothers of the subjects were also linked with the seropositivity of the children.

Full Text Available The study was conducted to evaluate small-scale egg production in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State. Thirty five (35) poultry farms were purposively selected from the local government area. Structured questionnaire were used to collect data and analyzed using descriptive statistics, farm budgeting model and regression analysis. The results showed that 77.40% of the egg producers were females and 71.43% attended tertiary institutions. The returns per naira invested was found to be 1.35 and the operating ratio was 0.6 indicating the venture was profitable. Regression analysis revealed that the significant variables influencing egg production were feeds (P<0.01) and flock size (P<0.001). Avian diseases constituted the most predominant constraint (91.4%), followed by feed problems (68.6%). Farmers should be encouraged on modern poultry management systems with emphasis on disease prevention and feed formulation in order to improve the production of the enterprise.

Prevalence and risk factors for zoonotic helminth infection among humans and animals - Jos, Nigeria, 2005-2009.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

BACKGROUND: Zoonotic infections are among the most common on earth and are responsible for over 60% of human infectious diseases, some of which are caused by helminth parasites. Infection may result from ingestion of infective stage of worms with food, contaminated soil; skin penetration or direct animal contact. This study estimates the prevalence of zoonotic helminth infections (ZHI) among animals and humans in Jos and identifies associated risk factors METHODS: We reviewed laboratory records from five hospitals, one veterinary clinic and meat inspection record at abattoir in Jos from 2005-2009. Prevalence was defined as the observed frequency of cases of zoonotic helminth in the sampled population within the study period. Odd ratio analysis was used to identify factors associated with ZHI. RESULTS: Of 6689 humans tested, 524 (7.8%) were positive. Observed ZHI are: Ascaris species (4.5%), Taeniasis-Cysticercosis (1.5%), Schistosoma species (1.1%), Strongyloidosis (0.09%). Among animals, 3520 (18.1%) of 19508 tested/observed were positive; including Fasciola species (12.7%), Taeniasis-Cysticercosis (5.0%), Strongyloidosis (0.4%), Ascaris species (0.04%). The risk of infection was higher among humans aged 6-19 (OR: 3.2; 95% CI: 2.0-5.2) and 20-60 (OR: 2.3; 95% CI: 1.7-3.9). Peri-urban dwellers are at higher risk (OR: 1.5; 95% CI: 1.3-1.9); and so are farmers. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of zoonotic helminth infection is high among humans and animals in Jos. Risk of infection are higher among human age 6-60, peri-urban dwellers and farmers. This calls for the formulation of workable collaboration between human and veterinary medical disciplines for better control of zoonotic helminth infections.

Utilization of modern contraceptives among female traders in Jos South LGA of Plateau state, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Contraceptive use is seen as pivotal to protecting women’s health and rights, contraception when accepted and used by majority of women in any given community has been shown to reduce unwanted pregnancy, high parity and consequently maternal mortality. Aim: The study aimed at determining the level of awareness, utilization, preferred methods of contraceptives and factors affecting contraceptive use among female traders of Jos south Local government area of Plateau state. Materials and methods: The study was a cross sectional descriptive study that was carried out among female traders within reproductive age group who were not pregnant and consented for the study. Data was generated using a semi-structured interviewer’s administered questionnaire. Result: Two hundred and twelve women were interviewed, their ages ranged from 15-49 years with a mean age of 30+ 3.72. Majority (69.3%) were married. The level of awareness of modern contraceptives was high (93.4%) and the most popular contraceptive methods were male condom (95.5%), injectable (87.4%) and oral contraceptives pills (85.9%) while the unpopular methods were female condom (40.4%), cervical diaphragm (17.5%), cervical cap (12.1%) and spermicides (12.6%). The prevalence of modern contraceptive utilization was 51.9% while 102 (48.1%) were not using any form of contraceptives. Factors found to be associated with contraceptive use among the female traders included marital status (p<0.0001), religion (p<0.0001), education (p=0.048) and parity (p=0.0003). Conclusion: The use of modern contraceptives has remained low despite the high level of awareness of the modern contraceptives among the female traders. Health education on the importance of the use of modern contraceptives should be given to female traders to encourage the use among them.

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)

[en] 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.

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

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

[en] 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 ?Gyh-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 ?Gyh-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±8.14?Svy-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)

Seroprevalence of fowl pox antibody in indigenous chickens in jos north and South council areas of plateau state, Nigeria: implication for vector vaccine.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

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.

Un contrato inédito de Juan de Juanes. El retablo de la Cofradía de la Sangre de Cristo de Valencia (1539)  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This article is based on an unpublished contract signed in 1539 by Vicente and Juan Macip for an altarpiece for the Valencian Brotherhood of the Blood of Christ. The agreement stipulates that Juan, later known as Juan de Juanes, had to paint the scenes. Thus the document reinforces the hypothesis that Juan Macip was the most important painter in the Macip workshop during the 1530’s. It also fills a documental void in between the completion of the Silversmith’s Guild altarpiece (1534-1539) and the contract for the Fuente la Higuera altarpiece (1548). This study also verifies the popularity of the iconography of the seven sheddings of the Blood of Christ and processions of disciplinants.Se presenta un contrato inédito suscrito por la Cofradía de la Sangre de Cristo de la ciudad de Valencia con Vicente y Juan Macip en 1539. En él se especifica que sea pintado por Juan, más conocido con posterioridad como Juan de Juanes. Se refuerza la hipótesis que permite concretar a Juan Macip como el pintor más importante del taller de los Macip durante la década de los 30, al tiempo que se llena un vacío documental entre la entrega del retablo del gremio de plateros (1534-1539) y la contratación del retablo de Fuente la Higuera (1548). Se constata igualmente la popularidad de la iconografía de los siete derramamientos de la Sangre de Cristo y la procesión de los disciplinantes.

Juan de Arfe Villafañe y Sebastiano Serlio  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan de Arfe's awareness and utilization of Italian art treatises, particularly that of Sebastiano Serlio, are analyzed in this study. The author demonstrates that Serlio's influence is perceptible in much of this artisan's production, from the Avila monstrance to that of Valladolid. It is especially manifest in Arfe's creations carried out in Seville, particularly in Books I and IV of his Varia Commensuracion and in the monstrance for the cathedral.En este artículo se analiza el conocimiento y la utilización de los tratadistas italianos, particularmente de Sebastiano Serlio, por parte de Juan de Arfe.

Petroleum geochemistry of San Juan sag, Colorado  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Recently, oil and gas shows have been reported in Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks of the San Juan sag, and minor oil production has been established from volcanic rocks (Kirby Petroleum 1 Jynnifer well, Sec. 9, TT40N, R5E). Potential source rocks present in the San Juan sag are the upper and lower (including the Niobrara Member) Mancos Shale (Upper Cretaceous). The combined upper and lower Mancos Shale is about 660 m thick and contains between about 0.5 and 5.5% organic carbon, although most values are between about 1.5 and 2.0%. The Niobrara Member of the lower Mancos Shale has the highest overall organic matter content in the section (organic carbon averages > 2.0%). Pyrolysis and solvent extraction yields (typically 2,000-6,000 and 1,000-4,000 ppm, respectively) indicate that the upper and lower Mancos Shale and the Niobrara Member are all good potential source rocks for oil and gas. Oil-source rock correlations using gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, and stable carbon isotope ratios indicate that the upper Mancos Shale is the most likely source for the oil produced from the 1 Jynnifer discovery well. The source of the oil produced from the nearby Gramps field is less certain but may be the lower Mancos Shale or Niobrara Member. The hydrocarbon generation history of the San Juan sag is complex because of highly variable heat flow in the area caused by Oligocene volcanism. Sills have caused thermal alteration of organic matter in shales on a local scale, and larger volcanic bodies may have produced proportionally larger thermal effects. Localized heating may have caused thermal decomposition of carbonate minerals and generation of high CO{sub 2} gas deposits. Higher regional heat flow associated with volcanism was important in the source rock maturation of this area and maturation was relatively recent (Oligocene to present).

Source rock maturation, San Juan sag  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Kinetic modeling for thermal histories was simulated for seven wells in the San Juan sag honoring measured geochemical data. Wells in the area of Del Norte field (Sec. 9, T40N, R5E), where minor production has been established from an igneous sill reservoir, show that the Mancos Shale source rocks are in the mature oil generation window as a combined result of high regional heat flow and burial by approximately 2,700 m of Oligocene volcanic rocks. Maturation was relatively recent for this area and insignificant during Laramide subsidence. In the vicinity of Gramps field (Sec. 24, T33N, R2E) on the southwest flank of the San Juan sag, these same source rocks are exposed due to erosion of the volcanic cover but appear to have undergone a similar maturation history. At the north and south margins of the sag, two wells (Champlin 34A-13, Sec. 13, T35N, R4.5E; and Champlin 24A-1, Sec. 1, T44N, R5E) were analyzed and revealed that although the regional heat flow was probably similar to other wells, the depth of burial was insufficient to cause maturation (except where intruded by thick igneous sills that caused localized maturation). The Meridian Oil 23-17 South Fork well (Sec. 17, T39N, R4E) was drilled in a deeper part of the San Juan sag, and source rocks were intruded by numerous igneous sills creating a complex maturation history that includes overmature rocks in the lowermost Mancos Shale, possible CO{sub 2} generation from the calcareous Niobrara Member of the Mancos Shale, and mature source rocks in the upper Mancos Shale.

Juan Guas en la Catedral de Segovia  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan Guas, one of the most active stone masons of the second half of the 15th century, worked in Segovia for 20 years (1471-1491), where he participated in the construction of the Cathedral and other buildings in the city. Thus Segovia is a necessary place of reference for the study of this master. In this article the participation of Guas in the building of the Cathedral is analyzed from the documental point of view through the different contracts he signed with the Cathedral chapter. These documents allow for the evaluation of the progressive consolidation of Guas in the exercise of his profession, and are of great interest for the better understanding of artistic practice during his day.Juan Guas es uno de los canteros más activos de la segunda mitad del siglo XV. Durante veinte años (1471-1491) trabajó en Segovia, donde participó en la construcción de la catedral y en otros edificios de la misma ciudad, siendo Segovia un lugar de referencia obligada en la investigación sobre el maestro. El presente artículo analiza, desde un punto de vista documental, la participación de Guas en las obras de la catedral a través de los diferentes contratos que firmó con el cabildo catedralicio. Estos permiten evaluar la progresiva consolidación de Guas en el ejercicio de su profesión, de gran interés para el mejor conocimiento de la práctica artística de su época.

Juan Preciado: viaje, ilusión y esperanza/ Juan Preciado: Journey, Illusion, and Hope

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Pedro Páramo es quizás uno de los textos que más 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 interpretación más difundida por la crítica. Sin embargo, si se lee detenidamente el discurso del protago (more) nista se cae en la cuenta de que no es ése el motivo principal de su viaje a Comala. En realidad, Juan Preciado es movido por la esperanza que era "aquel señor" llamado Pedro Páramo, no por la promesa hecha a Dolores, de la que él mismo dice que no pensaba cumplir hasta que comenzó a llenarse de sueños, de ilusiones y de esperanza. El viaje de Juan va de la esperanza a la ilusión para terminar en la muerte.

Molecular identification of Cordylobia anthropophaga Blanchard (Diptera: Calliphoridae) larvae collected from dogs (Canis familiaris) in Jos South, Plateau State, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Myiasis-causing larvae were extracted from dogs attending veterinary clinics in Plateau State, Nigeria and subjected to molecular analysis involving polymerase chain reaction amplification of the 28S rRNA gene of blowflies, cloning and sequencing techniques. All larvae were confirmed as Cordylobia anthropophaga Blanchard (Diptera: Calliphoridae) after the initial morphological identification. This is the first molecular identification of any myiasis-causing fly species in Nigeria and may serve as a reliable alternative to morphological identification where samples are not well preserved or difficult to identify to species level.How to cite this article: Ogo, N.I., Onovoh, E., Okubanjo, O.O., Galindo, R.C., De la Lastra, J.P. & De la Fuente, J., 2012, ‘Molecular identification of Cordylobia anthropophaga Blanchard (Diptera: Calliphoridae) larvae collected from dogs (Canis familiaris) in Jos South, Plateau State, Nigeria’, Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 79(1), Art. #349, 4 pages. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ojvr.v79i1.349

A 10-year audit of gynaecological surgeries performed in the paediatric age group at the Jos University Teaching Hospital  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Surgeries performed for gynaecological conditions in children and adolescents are not common in our environment. Adequate facilities and the skill to perform the required procedures may also be lacking. We were interested in reviewing the practice of paediatric gynaecological surgery in our facility. Patients and Methods: A retrospective study of case files and theatre records of children below the age of 16 years who had surgeries at the Jos University Teaching Hospital over a 10 year period was undertaken. Results: A total of 89 surgeries were performed in this age group during the period under review. Twenty-eight (33.4%) of the patients were below the age of 11. The most common surgical procedure was for the management of septic abortion (21.3%). Correction of congenital malformations of the genital tract accounted for 21.4% (19) of the surgeries performed. Fourteen (15.7%) laparotomies were performed for ovarian cysts. Conclusion: Though the number of surgeries performed on children for gynaecologic reasons may appear small, the skills required to manage them should be enhanced and the requisite facilities provided.

Nova Scotia Power response to Hurricane Juan  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Hurricane Juan hit the Halifax Regional Municipality on September 28, 2003, creating the largest outage in Nova Scotia Power's history. This detailed report documents the extensive damage that Hurricane Juan caused to the power transmission and distribution system in Nova Scotia. It also reviews the massive power restoration effort, with reference to numerous interviews, computer records and data logs which offer a wide range of observations, statistics and insights into the preparation and performance of Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) and the efforts of other key organizations following the storm. NSPI organized a recovery effort that matched the intensity of the hurricane. A fire in the Scotia Square Office Tower caused the evacuation of the company's call centre. The Tufts Cove station in Dartmouth, which generates 400 megawatts of power, was forced to shut down. Excess electricity was moved into New Brunswick and other jurisdictions to maintain system stability. The main priority was to restore customers back to service. Within 5 days of the hurricane, 95 per cent of those who lost power had service restored. Hurricane Juan caused the most damage to the transmission and distribution system in NSPI's history. Three out of five high capacity transmission lines were put out of service. Three 120-foot high transmission towers fell, and 17 main transmission lines were damaged and put out of service. Forty-five major substations were affected and 145 distribution feeders were damaged or tripped off, including 106 in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Large portions of 4,500 kilometres of local distribution lines in the Halifax Regional Municipality were damaged, including thousands of kilometers across the Northeast. The power crew, consisting of 2,000 individuals from the region and neighbouring utilities in New Brunswick and Maine, worked for 15 consecutive days to replace 275 transformers, 760 power poles, and 125,000 metres of conductor wire. NSPI is proud of the recovery effort, but acknowledges that there is room for improvement in communicating information to customers during extended outages. Other improvements include a better assessment of initial damage. refs., tabs., figs.

Su obra ha sido estudiada por diferentes autores, intentando explicar su filiación con modelos caravaggiescos en fechas tan tempranas, y sobre todo su modernidad, pues anticipa en el Madrid de los primeros decenios del XVII una manera de entender el arte completamente nueva. Precisamente en su producción el gusto por la sensualidad y la desnudez no pasa inadvertida en sus modelos y este aspecto también presente en la pintura de Anibale Carracci y Guido Reni, no permaneció ajeno en la historiografía artística, pues el propio Jusepe Martínez cuenta que Maíno era discípulo de Carracci y compañero de Guido Reni.

Prevalence of Escherichia coli among uropathogens in asymptomatic bacteriuria in a Nigerian Tertiary school in Jos, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Influence of Market Location, Sex and Species on Weight and Prices of Sheep and Goats Around Jos Plateau State  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This study was conducted to investigate some of the factors affecting sheep and Goats marketing in Jos and environ. Data used in the study were collected in five selected local livestock markets, namely Rikkos, Bukuru, Barkin Ladi, Gada and Tilden Fulani. After price bargain between sellers and buyers, the animals are weighed. The weight is recorded against the agreed price and sex of the animal in each of the five markets. A total of 120 animals were recorded in each market location between January and April 2003. The breeds of sheep and goats considered in the present study were Balami (BM), Uda (UD), Yankasa (YK) and West African Dwarf sheep (WS); Sokoto Red (SR), Bauchi Red (BR) and West African Dwarf goats (WG). Data obtained were analysed using simple analyses of variance and the means separated using least significant differences. Weight were significantly (p2727.7±33.4 were recorded on males than the females which recorded 25.45±0.91 kg and 2529.8±33.0. Also higher weight and price of 27.28±0.85 kg and 2913.0±19.6 were recorded on sheep than goat which recorded 25.35±0.74 kg and 2406.6±41.4, respectively. In goats prices were significantly (p2341.3±62.0 and 2334.9±74.1 were recorded on SR, BR and WG, respectively.

Seroprevalence of antibodies (IgG) to Taenia solium among pig rearers and associated risk factors in Jos metropolis, Nigeria.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

INTRODUCTION: In Nigeria, Taenia solium cysticercosis is a problem in rural areas where most pigs are kept and in urban areas where infected pork can be consumed. METHODOLOGY: We performed enzyme linked immunosorbent assays on serum samples collected from pig rearers in Jos, Nigeria, to determine the prevalence of IgG antibodies. RESULTS: Of 125 subjects tested, 12 (9.6%) were positive for T. solium. Seroprevalence did not differ significantly (P>0.05) according to education, age, occupation, study location, gender or whether the subjects consumed pork. However, a statistical difference (P<0.05) in seroprevalence was observed according to type and availability of toilet used, personal hygiene after using the toilet, and type of pig management practiced. Females were about two times more likely to be seroprevalent than males (OR=1.7; 95% CI= 0.43-6.67; P=0.4) and subjects who consumed pork were four times more likely to have anti T. solium antibodies than those who did not eat pork (OR=4.2; 95%CI=0.52-33.57; P=0.2). Those who defecated in the bush were 8.3 times more likely to suffer from T. solium infection than those who used water system toilets (OR=8.3; 95%CI=1.56-43.7; P=0.01). Subjects who did not wash their hands after defecating were 6 times more likely to contract T. solium compared to those who washed their hands with water (OR=5.5; 95% CI=1.39-21.89; P=0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that using a toilet and practicing good personal hygiene can reduce cases of T. solium infection in a community.

Role of magnetotellurics in exploration of San Juan sag  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado, consisting almost entirely of Tertiary volcanic rocks, are bounded on the southwest by the mature oil and gas province of the San Juan basin and on the east by the San Luis basin. Continuation of the sediments from the San Juan basin eastward beneath the volcanics was suspected based on the reported presence of seeps and the evaluation of regional gravity and magnetic data. The objective of applying MT to the exploration of the San Juan sag area was to determine, through the measurement of subsurface resistivity, whether the hydrocarbon-rich sedimentary rocks of the San Juan basin indeed extended eastward beneath the San Juan volcanics and, if so, to what extent. The MT program the authors describe was a reconnaissance profile, one of the initial investigations of the area. MT data were acquired at 12 sites extending from Pagosa Springs east across Wolf Creek Pass to Del Norte on the western margin of the San Luis basin. Data were acquired for calibration at well sites near Pagosa Springs and northeast of Del Norte. Site spacing was 4-8 mi. The 12-site program was designed to test the geologic concept and evaluate for a minimum expenditure the feasibility of applying MT to the problem.

Objetualismo en Juan Luis Martínez: el significante palpable/ Objectualism of Juan Luis Martínez: the palpable significant  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Este trabajo explora una parte de las obras de Juan Luis Martínez, La Nueva Novela y La Poesía Chilena, referida a la inclusión de objetos en el entramado textual y que da nacimiento, dentro de la neovanguardia literaria chilena, a una nueva técnica, el objetualismo, que junto con la pictografía y el collage van a ser características de este movimiento. Este objetualismo responde a un nuevo modo de entender el texto como un entramado en el que la exclusividad de la (more) palabra ha sido desplazada por un signo corpóreo de significante palpable, el objeto, que aumenta las posibilidades expresivas e interpretativas del signo literario y da lugar a lo que conocemos como obra-objeto. Abstract in english In the context of the neo-avant-garde literary, this paper explores parts of two works of Juan Luis Martinez, La Nueva Novela and La Poesía Chilena, where the author incorporates objects in the textual fabric, giving birth to a new technique, the objectualism. This technique, together with the pictograph and collage became characteristics of this movement in chilean literary. The objectualism represents a new way of understanding the text, in whose body the words has bee (more) n displaced by a corporeal sign with tangible significant. The object in the textual fabric enhances the expressive and interpretive possibilities of the literary signs, which results in what today we know as object-work.

Este grado de conciencia se expresa mediante las estrategias retóricas usadas por el autor, tales como el palimpsesto (en el sentido transtextual de Genette y semiótico de Barbero), la multiplicidad espacial, la ostensión y el uso (more) del autor textual como sujeto y objeto de su escritura.

San Juan gas line capacity due sharp jump  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

This paper reports on gas pipeline capacity out of the San Juan basin in the Four Corners area that will increase by more than 1.3 bcfd in two construction projects approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The projects will help solve operational problems and answer safety concerns arising because San Juan gathering systems upstream of pipeline bottlenecks were operating at or near maximum operating pressures. Without significant new pipeline capacity out of the San Juan basin, a capacity shortfall estimated at 500-600 MMcfd could have reached 800 MMcfd to 1 bcfd by next spring. FERC approved these projects at its last meeting before starting a 6 week recess ending Sept. 11.

SMCRA bond release - the initial steps at San Juan mine  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

San Juan Coal Company has submitted to the State of New Mexico's Mining and Minerals Division the final phase III bond release application for the approval and release of 241 acres of permitted lands at its San Juan Mine located in San Juan County, New Mexico. The SMCRA (Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act) and New Mexico Surface Coal Mining Regulations mandate a minimum 10-year liability period following final reclamation, during which no additional treatments other than approved postmining land uses and approved interseedings may be applied to an area for which bond release is sought. Site-specific revegetation success standards must be met for two of the last four years of liability, beginning no sooner than year eight of the bonding period. Successful reclamation of the site was demonstrated by exceeding cover, production, shrub density, and diversity standards while supporting the primary postmining land use of livestock grazing. 11 refs., 1 fig., 8 tabs.

De Juan Goytisolo à Monique Lange, de Monique Lange à Juan Goytisolo : une "intertextualité conjugale"  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan Goytisolo (né en 1931), écrivain espagnol, et Monique Lange (1926-1996), écrivain français, ont produit chacun une œuvre à forte résonance autobiographique, sous couvert de fiction, et qui crée un effet très particulier d’inter­textualité par le simple fait qu’ils étaient, dans la vie, mari et femme... D’où ce titre « d’intertextualité conjugale », car ces récits auto-fictionnels croisés de relations communes s’enri­chissent particulièrement du regard critique et lucide de la romancière sur les obsessions personnelles de son écrivain de mari, les décryptant par le biais de personnages « inventés » qui, non seulement renseignent sur un destin littéraire partagé, mais encore et surtout, dans une configuration rare de double écriture, permettent chez Lange de lire différemment les lignes souvent floues (sur la sexualité, les parias, le monde arabe) de l’écrivain espagnol bien connu, et même de démystifier ses discours d’Espagnol marginal.

Measurements of x-ray radiation dose levels during radiological examination in Jos university teaching hospital and Plateau state specialist hospital  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

In this project, measurement of x-ray radiation dose level during radiological examination in Jos university teaching hospital and Plateau State specialist hospital at different locations within the department were carried out using radiation survey meter. The results were converted from micro sievert per hour (?Sv/hr) to milisievert per year (mSv/yr). The radiation levels from the two hospitals visited ranged from 1.3m Sv/yr to 8.4m Sv/yr. This implies that all the radiology departments visited are still operating within the safety limit having less than 20 mSv/yr which is the standard permissible radiation level recommended per year.

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

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

Oral anatomy in the sixteenth century: Juan Valverde de Amusco.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

In 1554 Juan Valverde de Amusco, a Spanish anatomist, wrote the History of the composition of the human body, a complete anatomical treatise that took as its model the Vesalius school of thought (La fábrica of Vesalius). Considered one of the most complete anatomical treatises of the Renaissance and one of the most widely read books of the sixteenth century, it was translated into four languages in its day. The first chapter, devoted to bones, provides a meticulously detailed analysis of the bones of the facial structures and of the teeth, their supporting structures, vascularisation and innervation. Juan Valverde de Amusco even describes techniques for reducing mandibular luxations. Even with the imprecise observations typical of the time the treatise must be considered an exceptional document.

Full Text Available Argentine traditional historiography consolidated the imagen of Juan Manuel de Rosas as the Restorer of the colonial Catholic tradition strongly weakened during the Rivadavian experience on the decade of 1820. This work discusses this assumption. Our central hypothesis is, on the contrary, that Rosas tried to carry out a religious policy inspired in distinct elements taken of different ideological traditions. This attempt conducts him to a dead-end.La historiografía tradicional argentina consolidó la imagen de Juan Manuel de Rosas como el restaurador de la tradición católica colonial, muy debilitada durante la experiencia rivadaviana en la década de 1820.

Uranium in the San Juan Basin: an overview  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Uranium deposits in the San Juan Basin occur principally in continental, fluvial sandstones of the Morrison Formation of Jurassic age. A cluster of large deposits in McKinley, Sandoval, and Valencia Counties, New Mexico, comprises the Grants Mineral Belt, the largest uranium area in the United States. During 1948 through 1976, underground and open-pit mines in the San Juan Basin have produced 119, 163 tons of uranium oxide (U3O8). This amounts to 40% of the total United States' uranium ore production. The discovered ore reserves and the favorable geology for undiscovered potential resources of the basin are expected to maintain New Mexico's position as the nation's principal source of uranium for years to come

Juan Tizol: His talents, his collaborators, his legacy  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan Tizol is often remembered as the famed trombonist who composed the jazz evergreens known as ?Caravan? and ?Perdido.? Few know that this enigmatic figure was a multifaceted talent who lived an extraordinary life in the world of music, and who was a native of Puerto Rico who divided his life into four broad segments, the first 20 years in his native homeland, the next several years in Washington, D.C., the third in New York City, and finally the fourth segment in Los Angeles. From these different venues, Tizol acquired an abundance of musical experiences that permitted him to make a contribution that has been described as one ?whose Latin American touch changed the Duke Ellington Orchestra ? and the history of jazz.? This article provides the reader with greater details of Juan Tizol´s contributions as a trombonist, composer, and music transcriber

We present our activities of popularization of Astronomy at Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid, especially our 30-h workshop for people older than 55 (University for the Elderly) held since the academic year 2002/2003. Our course aims to introduce the basic topics on Astronomy to a group of motivated students who, in most cases, were not able to complete their education in their youth due to the historical environment of Spain in the middle of the twentieth century.

[Infectious nature of leprosy, by Juan de Azua].  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

In this article by Juan de Azua, published in the second issue of Actas Dermosifiliográficas 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 Lázaro in Santiago, Granada, and Seville, to be the best prophylaxis, and he considers it would be appropriate to create "Hospitals for poor lepers".

Water supply and demand scenarios in the San Juan watershed  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

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

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

The cosmic ray record in the San Juan Capistrano meteorite  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

An integrated study of the cosmic ray exposure history of the San Juan Capistrano meteorite was carried out using measurements of rare gas isotopic abundances, particle track densities and radioisotope concentrations. Spallation systematics determined for Kr isotopes in lunar samples are shown to be valid also for the San Juan Capistrano and St. Severin meteorites, thus allowing the determination of a reliable 81Kr/83Kr production ratio as needed for applying the 81Kr-Kr dating method. The 81Kr-Kr age of SJC is 28.7 + - 2.0 Myr, about 35% longer than ages determined by spallation He or Ne. The minimum observed track production rate (2.6 x 105 tracks/cm2 Myr) sets a minimum of 8 cm for the preatmospheric radius of an assumed spherical body. Track density gradients and the low 60Co activity (78Kr and 83Kr, and the ratios 3He/21Ne and 22Ne/ 21Ne are all compatible with a hard irradiation as would be experienced by a sample depth of about 6 cm in a body of 8 to 10 cm. The low activities of 54Mn, 22Na and 26Al are also consistent with these irradiation conditions. (author)

Vexierklänge. Anmerkungen zu einem Tiento de falsas von Juan Cabanilles  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The 5th tiento de falsas of Juan Bautista Cabanilles is off the beaten track of his further compositions with this designation. Besides the typical dissonances and unusual progressions in tientos de falsas, this piece for organ surprises with an intricate polyphonic setting. Nearly two thirds of the whole piece can be reduced to a minimum of motivic material, that is presented in continually new facets by canonic voice-leading, sequences and inversion. Yet the rhythmic and melodic structure of this piece of an altogether traditional style is not touched. The effect upon the listener, describable as thrilling or charming - at the same time vexing by the monotony and fascinating by the subtle harmonic graduation of the sounds - proves this tiento as a jewel of a very late manierism.[de] Das fünfte Tiento de falsas von Juan Bautista Cabanilles fällt aus dem Rahmen seiner übrigen Kompositionen mit dieser Titelangabe. Neben den für die Tientos de falsas typischen Dissonanzen und ungewöhnlichen Fortschreitungen überrascht dieses Orgelstück mit einem intrikaten polyphonen Satz. Fast zwei Drittel des gesamten Stücks lassen sich auf ein Minimum an motivischem Material zurückführen, das durch kanonische Stimmführung, Sequenzierung und Umkehrung in immer neuen harmonischen Facetten gezeigt wird, während sich die rhythmische und die grobmelodische Struktur nicht verändert. Die Wirkung auf den Hörer, die ais durch die Monotonie quälender, jedoch durch die feinfarbliche harmonische Abstufung der Klänge gleichzeitig faszinierender Reiz beschrieben werden kann, weist in Verbindung mit der sehr traditionellen Satztechnik dieses Tiento ais ein Kabinettstiick des sehr spaten Manierismus aus.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Seasonal Variation in the Abundance and Distribution of Ixodid Ticks on Mongrel, Alsatian and Mixed Breeds of Dogs (Canis familiaris) in Jos, in Plateau State, North-Central, Nigeria  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 A study was conducted to determine the variation, abundance and distribution of ticks on 300 Mongrels, Mixed and Alsatian breeds of dogs (Canis familiaris) in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. The population of ticks was higher during the rainy months than the dry months. A total of 1,146 ticks of three species, belonging to the family Ixodidae were identified of which Mixed breed recorded 425 ticks, Mongrels had 408 while the Alsatian breed had 313. In order of abundance Rhipicephalus sanguineus recorded  40.58%; Boophilus decoloratus, 33.50% and Haemaphysalis leachii, 25.92%. Chi-squared analysis showed that abundance and distribution of different tick species varied significantly (P 0.05) among different bred of Canis familiaris. Of 154 male dogs examined 70, (45.16%) and 146 female dogs 85, (54.84%) were infested with ticks.  Adolescent dogs were more susceptible to tick infestation, 47.10% than the adult hosts 30.90% when compared to young dogs or puppies, 22.00%. Statistical analysis showed that infestation rate between sexes of dogs and among tick species differed significantly (P 0.05). Any strategy intended to mitigate the problems of tick infestation of dogs in Jos plateau should take into account the identified tick species and their season of abundance.

Urban ecology of Triatoma infestans in San Juan, Argentina  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This study was performed in an urban neighborhood of the capital city of the province of San Juan, Argentina. Erected as a housing complex, the place consists of 768 flats distributed in buildings of three and seven floors each. A survey was carried out in 33% of the dwellings, enquiring about the number of Triatoma infestans found indoors, stage of the bug development - nymph or adult - and how these insects had entered their homes. Adult T.infestans were found on all floors; 163 people (64%) had found them at least once, and 130 (51%) several times. Dispersal flight seems to have been the main mechanism of infestation by adult bugs in this area, and a total of 51% of the surveyed inhabitants reported that the insects had flown into their flats.

Statuens indre liv. En tolkning av Juan Muñoz' kunst  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available From the mid-1980's until his untimely death in 2001, the Spanish-born artistJuan Muñoz gained international acclaim for his sculptures, installations andmultimedia projects. This article discusses and interprets some of his figurativesculptural works, using concepts such as simulacrum, alienation, allegory, thestatue as an autonomous entity, and Walter Benjamin's notion of aura. Muñoz'ssculptures strongly invite us into illusionary settings and situations while at thesame time leaving us on the outside, as strangers in awkward situations. Thetheatrical, or performative, character of his larger installations, or tableauxvivants, such as Many Times (1999), questions not only our social andenvironmental relations, but also our individuality, as if we are confrontingmirrors that uncover our vulnerable subjectivity in highly disturbing ways.

Juan Pablo II su accionar pastoral y sus consecuencias políticas  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available El accionar del Papa Wojtyla ha significado un fuerte apoyo al derrumbe del bloque soviético, a la par de ser un serio intento de frenar el desarrollo de la Teoría de la Liberación. Su desempeño en Cuba permitió la recuperación para el Vaticano de la Iglesia local, la cual esta comprometida con las posiciones políticas del pueblo Cubano. Asimismo Juan Pablo II ha reafirmado fuertemente la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia, y desde esa posición ha denostado fuertemente al neoliberalismo. Este último hecho, es el que legitima políticamente las recientes manifestaciones de las jerarquías de la Iglesia en la Argentina en sus manifestaciones críticas a la situación social y económica de nuestro país

EMRIDGE: The electromagnetic investigation of the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

Science.gov (United States)

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

Distribution of hydrothermal manganese over the Juan de Fuca Ridge  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Bottom waters from five hydrographic stations, spaced equally along a 400-km section of the Juan de Fuca Ridge north of the Blanco Fracture Zone, contain anomalously high concentrations of total dissolvable manganese (TDM). The two bottom-most bottles from each hydrocast (approx. 100 to 200 m above bottom) range from 8.3 to 108.9 nmol kg-1 with a median value of 12.0 nmol kg-1. This median is nearly a factor of 10 higher than similar near bottom samples obtained from two off-axis locations. Analogy to work on the East Pacific Rise implies that hydrothermal activity along the ridge axis is contributing substantially to the manganese content of the water column in this portion of the northeastern Pacific

Activity concentrations of 226Ra, 228Th, and 40K in different food crops from a high background radiation area in Bitsichi, Jos Plateau, Nigeria.  

Science.gov (United States)

One of the three goals of the United Nations for sustainable food security is to ensure that all people have access to sufficient, nutritionally adequate, and safe food. Decades of tin mining in the Bitsichi area of the Jos Plateau, Nigeria, have left a legacy of polluted water supplies, impoverished agricultural land, and soil containing abnormally high levels of naturally occurring radioactive elements. In order to ascertain the radiological food safety of the population, different crops that constitute the major food nutritive requirements were collected directly across farmlands in the area. The activity concentrations of (226)Ra, (228)Th, and (40)K were determined in the food and soil samples using gamma-ray spectrometry. Additionally, in situ gamma dose rate measurements were performed on the farms using a pre-calibrated survey meter. The corresponding activity concentrations in the food crops ranged from below detection limit (BDL) to 684.5 Bq kg(-1) for (40)K, from BDL to 83.5 Bq kg(-1) for (226)Ra, and from BDL to 89.8 Bq kg(-1) for (228)Th. Activity concentrations of these radionuclides were found to be lower in cereals than in tubers and vegetables. As for the soil samples, activity concentrations of these radionuclides varied from BDL to 166.4 Bq kg(-1), from 10.9 to 470.6 Bq kg(-1), and from 122.7 to 2,189.5 Bq kg(-1) for (40)K, (226)Ra, and (228)Th, respectively. Average external gamma dose rates were found to vary across the farms from 0.50 +/- 0.01 to 1.47 +/- 0.04 microSv h(-1). Due to past mining activities, the soil radioactivity in the area has been modified and the concentration level of the investigated natural radionuclides in the food crops has also been enhanced. However, the values obtained suggest that the dose from intake of these radionuclides by the food crops is low and that harmful health effects are not expected. PMID:17211656

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

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

Evolution of Erigeron (Compositae) in the Juan Fernandez Islands, Chile.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

Six endemic species of Erigeron occur in the Juan Fernandez Islands: E. fernandezianus, E. ingae, E. luteoviridis, E. rupicola, E. stuessyi, and E. turricola. The last five are restricted to the younger and more distant island, Masafuera (1-2 million years old), and E. fernandezianus occurs on Masafuera and Masatierra (ca. 4 million years old). All species have n = 27. Phenetic analysis suggests that all six species have come from a single introduction from southern South America, perhaps coastal southern Peru or central Chile. Cladistic analysis reveals two major clades: one involving E. rupicola and E. stuessyi, and the other containing the other four species. In the latter line, E. ingae and E. turricola form a closely related paraphyletic species pair, and E. luteoviridis and E. fernandezianus represent a closely allied holophyletic unit. Phytogeographically, the genus apparently became established first on Masafuera, with subsequent (and more recent) colonization of Masatierra. Speciation appears to have followed a pattern of adaptive radiation with discernible geographic and ecological isolation. Flavonoid compounds from 56 populations of endemic species in the archipelago and from 10 populations of five species on the continent exhibit interpopulational variation, which compromises the value of flavonoids for systematic purposes. Erigeron rupicola and E. stuessyi have similar profiles that differ from the other species.

Tectonic setting of the San Juan basin in the Jurassic  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

In the Middle and Late Jurassic, the structural configuration of the area occupied by the San Juan basin was different from the present-day configuration, which developed in response to Laramide deformation in the latest Cretaceous to early Teritary. An isopach map indicates a thickening of Middle to Upper Jurassic strata near the southern margin of the area. The thickening is attributed to downwarping, mainly in the Jurassic, which may have controlled depositional patterns and influenced the distribution of primary uranium ore deposits in the host rocks of the Jurassic Morrison Formation. Paleotectonic reconstruction indicates the existence of a magmatic arc immediately west of the Colorado Plateau in the Jurassic. Jurassic folding in the basin and magmatic activity in the arc have important implications bearing on the uranium geology of the area. The folding probably exerted some control on depositional trends in the host rocks which, in turn, influenced the distribution of uranium deposits in them. Volcanism in the magmatic arc supplied silicic ash that may be the source of some, if not all, of the uranium in the host rocks

Third annual Lectureship of the Juan A. del Regato Foundation  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Since Juan del Regato started in 1931 at the Curie Foundation, great progress has been made in improved control rates and in our understanding of the basic principles of radiotherapy. Today, the management of cancers by irradiation is a composite of radiobiological concepts and knowledge of the behavior of the tumors. This blend of basic science and clinical knowledge has given considerable insight into general oncology. A somber note is appropriate. There is still plenty to be learned. The value of high linear energy transfer (LET) radiation, multifractionation, and hypoxic cell sensitizers are areas that require clinical investigation. The proliferation of radiotherapy facilities has resulted in the dispersion of clinical material and in the United States there are no Centers with enough patients to carry out meaningful investigations. Because of the complexity of the treatment schemes, cooperative studies involving a large number of participants fail to prove or disprove any hypothesis. If advances are to be made in clinical radiotherapy, there will have to be willingness to refer patients to Centers that are equipped for specific investigations

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

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

The Juan non-LTR retrotransposon in mosquitoes: genomic impact, vertical transmission and indications of recent and widespread activity  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background In contrast to DNA-mediated transposable elements (TEs), retrotransposons, particularly non-long terminal repeat retrotransposons (non-LTRs), are generally considered to have a much lower propensity towards horizontal transfer. Detailed studies on site-specific non-LTR families have demonstrated strict vertical transmission. More studies are needed with non-site-specific non-LTR families to determine whether strict vertical transmission is a phenomenon related to site specificity or a more general characteristic of all non-LTRs. Juan is a Jockey clade non-LTR retrotransposon first discovered in mosquitoes that is widely distributed in the mosquito family Culicidae. Being a non-site specific non-LTR, Juan offers an opportunity to further investigate the hypothesis that non-LTRs are genomic elements that are primarily vertically transmitted. Results Systematic analysis of the ~1.3 Gbp Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti) genome sequence suggests that Juan-A is the only Juan-type non-LTR in Aedes aegypti. Juan-A is highly reiterated and comprises approximately 3% of the genome. Using minimum cutoffs of 90% length and 70% nucleotide (nt) identity, 663 copies were found by BLAST using the published Juan-A sequence as the query. All 663 copies are at least 95% identical to Juan-A, while 378 of these copies are 99% identical to Juan-A, indicating that the Juan-A family has been transposing recently in evolutionary history. Using the 0.34 Kb 5' UTR as the query, over 2000 copies were identified that may contain internal promoters, leading to questions on the genomic impact of Juan-A. Juan sequences were obtained by PCR, library screening, and database searches for 18 mosquito species of six genera including Aedes, Ochlerotatus, Psorophora, Culex, Deinocerites, and Wyeomyia. Comparison of host and Juan phylogenies shows overall congruence with few exceptions. Conclusion Juan-A is a major genomic component in Ae. aegypti and it has been retrotransposing recently in evolutionary history. There are also indications that Juan has been recently active in a wide range of mosquito species. Furthermore, our research demonstrates that a Jockey clade non-LTR without target site-specificity has been sustained by vertical transmission in the mosquito family. These results strengthen the argument that non-LTRs tend to be genomic elements capable of persistence by vertical descent over a long evolutionary time.

A jewel in the desert: BHP Billiton's San Juan underground mine  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The Navajo Nation is America's largest native American tribe by population and acreage, and is blessed with large tracks of good coal deposits. BHP Billiton's New Mexico Coal Co. is the largest in the Navajo regeneration area. The holdings comprise the San Juan underground mine, the La Plata surface mine, now in reclamation, and the expanding Navajo surface mine. The article recounts the recent history of the mines. It stresses the emphasis on sensitivity to and helping to sustain tribal culture, and also on safety. San Juan's longwall system is unique to the nation. It started up as an automated system from the outset. Problems caused by hydrogen sulfide are being tackled. San Juan has a bleederless ventilation system to minimise the risk of spontaneous combustion of methane and the atmospheric conditions in the mine are heavily monitored, especially within the gob areas. 3 photos.

Laramide tectonic evolution of San Juan sag, Colorado: Implications of Animas and Blanco basin formations  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The lower member of the Animas Formation (McDermott Member) is a volcaniclastic sequence derived from a north-northwest source (San Juan-La Plata area). It consists of purple andesitic debris flows, green fan-delta sandstones and mud rocks, and dark gray conglomerates with clast compositions indicating that the Precambrian core of the source uplift was exposed. The upper member is a sand-dominated alluvial plain sequence deposited by southwest-flowing braided streams. It includes green-gray-brown carbonaceous mudstones and pebbly sandstones containing clasts of mudstone, andesite, and detritus from Precambrian and Mesozoic sources in the Brazos-San Luis uplift to the east and northeast. by the end of Animas deposition, the San Juan sag (then a northeastern extension of the San Juan basin) was a broad, southwest-plunging synclinal downwarp bounded by hogback monoclines to the north and east. An erosional period followed Animas deposition; the greatest thickness of Animas was preserved along the axis of this synclinal feature. Bright-red sandy mudstones and yellow-gray pebbly sandstones and cobble conglomerates comprise the proximal alluvial-fan deposits of the Blanco Basin Formation. They unconformably overlie Precambrian through Paleocene rocks and clast compositions reflect these sources. Renewed uplift and segmentation of the Brazos-San Luis uplift resulted in the shedding of detritus southwestward into the San Juan sag and eastward into a narrow, asymmetrical, north-trending wrench basin within the uplift. Following Blanco Basin deposition, the last Laramide event is represented by the separation of the San Juan sag from the San Juan basin by uplift of the Archuleta anticlinorium.

Isotopic study of the aquifer in the Tulum and Ullum-Zonda Valleys, San Juan, Argentina  

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 (?18O = -16 per mille), rainwater over the surrounding hills (?18O = -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.

The article describes the authors and works which were quoted by the Franciscan Juan Gil de Zamora in his Historia naturalis, a scientific encyclopaedia written between c. 1275 and before 1296, probably in the Franciscan monastery of Zamora (Kingdom of Castille). Juan Gil made wide use of the Avicenna's Canon, Gilbertus de Aquila (Anglicus)'s Compendium medicine, and Salernitan medical literature. His work contributed to the diffusion of these medical authors and works throughout the Christian intellectual milieu of late medieval Castille. This diffusion was not without problems.

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. El narrador del cuento que publicamos aquí asimila este rito a la historia de Juan Oso, muy conocido en el mundo andino. La importancia del oso en esta cultura de la ceja de selva alta es fundamental. En quechua local, el oso se llama ?puma? y comparte con el puma de la selva las características de fuerza temible y poderes sobrenaturales. El hijo del oso, Juan, evoca las relaciones ambiguas existentes entre los ?cristianos? de la serranía de Amazonas y los ?chunchos? de la selva. JUAN PUMA, THE BEAR'S SON. A QUECHUA TALE FROM LA JALCA, CHACHAPOYAS. 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.

Pesca exploratoria con espineles en aguas profundas en torno a la isla Robinson Crusoe (Archipiélago de Juan Fernández), Chile Longline exploratory fishing survey in deep waters around Robinson Crusoe island (Juan Fernandez archipelago), Chile  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La pesca exploratoria con espineles se efectuó en torno a la isla Robinson Crusoe del archipiélago de Juan Fernández, entre noviembre de 1996 y marzo de 1997. Esta experiencia fue desarrollada mediante el calado de espineles horizontales y verticales en estaciones posicionadas sobre 4 transectas orientadas radialmente a las islas, entre 50 y 1000 m de profundidad. En dicha experiencia se trabajó principalmente con anzuelos desbalanceados números 5, 6, 7 y 9. Los principales recursos capturados en estas actividades correspondieron a: anguila de profundidad (Bassanago nielseni), breca (Cheilodactylus gayi), cabrilla de Juan Fernández (Scorpaena fernandeziana), chancharro (Helicolenus lengerichi), corvina de Juan Fernández (Umbrina reedi), jurel de Juan Fernández (Pseudocaranx chilensis), morena (Gymnotorax porphyreus), ribaldo (Mora moro), tollo de Juan Fernández (Squalus mitsukurii), pez mariposa (Pterygotrigla picta) y alfonsino (Beryx splendens). Si bien las capturas obtenidas con estos aparejos no fueron especialmente abundantes, permitieron determinar la fauna íctica de aguas profundas en torno a estas islas. Las especies que presentaron los rendimientos más altos fueron la breca y tollo de Juan Fernández, entre 50 y 200 m, y el ribaldo, entre 400 y 600 m. Entre 600 y 1000 m no se registró captura de pecesA longline exploratory fishing around Robinson Crusoe island, belonging to the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, was conducted between November 1996 and March 1997. The experience was developed by setting horizontal and vertical longlines at stations over four radial transects, between 50 and 1000 m depth, using unbalanced hooks numbers 5, 6, 7 and 9. Main resources caught during these activities were: deep water eel (Bassanago nielseni), breca (Cheilodactylus gayi), Juan Fernandez rockfish (Scorpaena fernandeziana), croaker (Helicolenus lengerichi), Juan Fernandez corvina (Umbrina reedi), Juan Fernandez mackerel (Pseudocaranx chilensis), moray (Gymnotorax porphyreus), codling (Mora moro), Juan Fernandez dogfish (Squalus mitsukurii), robin fish (Pterygotrigla picta) and alfonsino (Beryx splendens). Even though the catch with these gears was not conspicuously abundant, it was possible to identify the deep water fauna around these islands. The species with higher yields were the breca and Juan Fernandez dogfish, between 50 and 200 m, and codling, between 400 and 600 m. Between 600 and 1000 m no fishes were recorded

Hazard assessment of inorganics to endangered fish in the San Juan River, New Mexico  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Acute toxicity tests were conducted with larval Colorado squawfish (Ptychocheilus lucius) and razorback sucker (Xyrauchen texanus) in a constituted water quality simulating the San Juan River near Shiprock, New Mexico. Tests were conducted with arsenate, copper, selenate, selenite, zinc, and five mixtures of seven to nine inorganics simulating environmental mixtures reported for sites along the San Juan River (Ojo Amarillo Canyon, Gallegos Canyon, Hogback East Drain, Mancos River, and McElmo Creek). Razorback suckers were significantly more sensitive to arsenate, selenate, selenite, Hogback East Drain mixture, and Ojo Amarillo Canyon mixture than were Colorado squawfish. The Gallegos Canyon mixture had greater than additive, i.e., synergistic, toxicity to both species, the Ojo Amarillo Canyon mixture had less than additive, i.e., antagonistic, toxicity to both species, and the Mancos River and McElmo Creek mixtures had additive toxicity to both species. The Hogback East Drain mixture had additive toxicity to Colorado squawfish, but synergistic toxicity to razorback suckers. The major toxic component in the five mixtures was copper. Comparison of 96-hour LC50 values with a limited number of environmental water concentrations from the San Juan River revealed high hazard ratios for copper and all five environmental mixtures. The high hazard ratios suggest inorganic contaminants could adversely affect larval Colorado squawfish and razorback suckers in the San Juan River at sites receiving elevated inorganics.

Comments on the Hurricane Juan report to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) has responded to several recommendations made by an independent consultant regarding its emergency response to Hurricane Juan which hit the Halifax Regional Municipality on September 28, 2003. NSPI is in agreement with most of the recommendations and is enhancing its preparedness for use in disaster scenarios similar to Hurricane Juan. Several recommendations have already been implemented by the power company including, improvements to call centre technology and processes, and better coordination with the electricity market operator and municipal responders. Lessons learned from Hurricane Juan were applied during a snow storm in February 2004, particularly in terms of communications. NSPI strongly disagrees with the consultant's recommendation to bring in hundreds of line crews from outside the region in advance of a major storm. NSPI argues that doing so, would have tripled or quadrupled Hurricane Juan costs to $40 or $50 million with little or no improvement on restoration times. Nova Scotia Power Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Emera (EMA-TSX). The utility provides more than 97 per cent of electric generation, transmission, and distribution to more than 460,000 customers across Nova Scotia. NSPI is committed to supporting Nova Scotian communities by providing safe, reliable power.

Chemical composition and water quality of the Castaño river, Calingasta, San Juan province, Argentina/ Composición química y calidad del agua del río Castaño. Calingasta, San Juan, Argentina  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish La provincia de San Juan, ubicada en el sector árido del centro-oeste de la República Argentina, es irrigada por dos sistemas fluviales importantes como son, los ríos Jáchal y San Juan. El río Castaño, objeto de este estudio, es uno de los principales tributarios del río San Juan que atraviesa el área minera de Castaño Viejo conocida desde 1863, pero explotada intensamente en el período1956-1964. En el presente trabajo, se definen algunas características hidroq (more) uímicas de este sistema hidrográfico, vinculadas a las actividades mineras enunciadas. El desarrollo deltrabajo consistió en un muestreo sistemático del agua del río Castaño para conocer particularmente los niveles de concentración de metales pesados, como cadmio, cinc, cobre, cromo, plomo y aluminio, y determinar su incidencia en la composición y calidad del agua.También se determinaron en laboratorio y campo parámetros tales como: pH, conductividad eléctrica y sólidos disueltos en el agua. Los resultados obtenidos indican que algunos parámetros químicos del agua de río, están vinculados a las variaciones de caudales provocadas por las diferentes estaciones del año y por el régimen de alimentación nival del río Castaño. El agua de este sistema hidrogr áfico no presenta sustancias tóxicas en niveles de contaminación y algunos de los tenores más altos de elementos pesados estarían relacionados con las áreas de afloramientos mineralizados por donde drena el río. Se concluye entonces, que la calidad de este recurso hídrico andino no ha sido afectada por la explotación 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 Castaño River is one of the two main tributaries to the latter. It crosses the Castaño Viejo mining district, which was a producer of lead, zinc and copper. To investigate 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 conce (more) ntrations 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.

Sus calizas son portadoras de una importante fauna de trilo-bites cámbricos. En este trabajo se describe y analiza la trilobitofauna del Delamariano de la Formación La Laja, ubicada entre los últimos metros del Miembro El Estero y el tercio inferior del Miembro Soldano. Se determinaron las biozonas de Poliel (more) la denticulata, Mexicella mexicana? y Glossopleura walcotti, las que en trabajos recientes han sido incluidas en un hiato faunístico.

Se realizaron correlaciones entre los niveles de la Formación La Laja y olistolitos de Precordillera Occidental. También se correlacionaron los niveles de Precordillera con otros en diferentes localidades de Laurentia. Los géneros documentados en este trabajo para el Delamariano de la Formación La Laja son característicos y restringidos a Laurentia. El análisis de toda la fauna de la Formacion La Laja, apoya el modelo alóctono para el origen de Precordillera. Abstract in english The La Laja Formation lies exposed almost continuously along the western margin of two hill ranges, i.e., the Sierra Chica de Zonda and Sierra de Villicum. This limestone unit bears a remarkable fauna of Cambrian trilobites. In this work we analyse the Delamaran trilobite fauna from the upper part of the El Estero Member and the lower third of the Soldano Member of the La Laja Formation. Taxa described are Glossopleura walcotti Poulsen, Glossopleura lodensis (Clark), Fiel (more) daspis sp., and Prozacanthoides zondaensis n. sp. The Poliella denticulata, Mexicella mexicana?, and Glossopleura walcotti Zones are documented; these had been previously included in a hiatus. Trilobites-based correlations are established between the La Laja Formation and olistoliths of the Western Precordillera. Additional correlations are also suggested between the Precordillera and different localities in Laurentia. Finally, we discuss the biogeographic implications of the described material. Delamaran taxa reported from the La Laja Formation are characteristic and so far restricted to Laurentia. Analysis of the trilobite fauna from this unit supports the allochtonous origin of the Precordillera.

Mapping the Juan de Fuca Slab Beneath the Cascadia Margin  

Science.gov (United States)

An accurate map of the Cascadia plate boundary is essential for studies of active margin processes such as deep fault creep, crustal strain accumulation, and metamorphism of the Juan de Fuca (JdF) slab. We have updated our model of slab geometry beneath the Cascadia subduction margin with additional depth control from recent studies of double-differenced (DD) hypocenter locations, and 2D and 3D velocity models based on active and passive source experiments. Our model attempts to integrate depth control from several data types. However, mismatches both within and between data types illuminate remaining uncertainties on the location and geometry of the slab. For example, does Wadati-Benioff (WB) seismicity beneath Washington (WA) and Vancouver Island (VI) occur within JdF crust, JdF mantle or both? If shallow WB seismicity occurs mainly in JdF mantle, our slab model could shift upwards as much as 5 km beneath Puget Sound. Where DD hypocenters resolve double seismic zones in California (CA), we can identify the JdF Moho, and thus infer the location of the slab surface. These data allow us to delineate a more complex geometry beneath northern CA that suggests buckling of the southern JdF plate where it converges with the Pacific plate. DD hypocenter locations have the potential to better map the complex arched slab geometry beneath Puget Sound and southern VI. In addition, interpretations of seismic velocity models based primarily on S-wave data depict low velocity JdF crust up to 10 km shallower beneath WA and VI than P-wave models that place JdF crust above a strong velocity discontinuity attributed to the slab Moho. Does this reflect model uncertainties, or are the two data types mapping different structures? Resolving the source of this mismatch and determining the most accurate slab location are critical to seismic hazard assessments of subduction earthquakes. To date, baseline comparisons of P- and S-wave models that employ equivalent initial velocity parameters are lacking. Differing interpretations of subsurface structure are prompting re-evaluation of the geologic architecture beneath the Pacific Northwest margin, in particular, oceanic terranes accreted or partially subducted during previous subduction regimes. Could some of these terranes mimic the JdF plate? Such tectonic complexities hamper efforts to directly compare Cascadia velocity models with those developed in other subduction settings such as Japan or Alaska. Resolving mismatches between data sets used to map the JdF slab and reducing uncertainties in slab models are essential for seismological, tectonic, and metamorphic studies of active subduction zone processes. A more accurate and detailed slab model will also provide a crucial tool for investigating the relationship between complexities in slab geometry and seismic moment release. Development of a community or consensus seismic velocity model is a key first step.

Relationships between heat flow, paleotemperatures, coalification and petroleum maturation in the San Juan Basin, northwest New Mexico and Southwest Colorado  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Across the San Juan Basin both coal rank and heat flow suggest the past and present geothermal influence of a massive thermal source associated with the San Juan volcanic field. Maximum paleotemperature estimates are calculated for the Fruitland Formation coals across the San Juan Basin by correlating coal rank to temperature-maturation charts for the Gulf Coast region,and by considering the effects of paleoclimate, uplift, additional burial and the San Juan volcanic field heat source. Estimated maximum paleotemperatures for the Basin are generally consistent with the regional pretroleum production, oil production occurring in the cooler regions around the western, southern and eastern periphery, gas production occurring in the warmer central and northern areas. Paleotemperatures in upper Pennsylvanian rocks, in the northern and perhaps central parts of the Basin, have likely exceeded the dry gas preservation limit (150/sup 0/C for Cretaceous rock in the Gulf Coast); therefore Paleozoic petroleum production in these areas is questionable.

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

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

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

APORTES PARA EL ANÁLISIS DE LA CONFIGURACIÓN DEL ESPACIO COLONIAL TEMPRANO DE VALLE FÉRTIL, SAN JUAN  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This paper analyses relevant information obtained at Usno 1 site, Valle Fértil, San Juan (siglos XV-XVII d.C.). Its record belongs to later formative and early colonial societies of Eastern San Juan region. Antecedents and present results in pottery and archeofaunal remains studies are approached. They show evidence of changes in technological aspects, as in patterns of animal consumption after the European conquest. It also shows the occupational continuity of indigenous populations in some landscapes of the vallisto region. Data from Usno 1 were integrated in a regional archaeological model aiming to explain the spatial dynamics of the late Valle Fértil’s societies. Archaeological results and historical sources approaches were also articulated and discussed.

PHENETIC RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN JUAN FERNANDEZ AND CONTINENTAL CHILEAN SPECIES OF SOPHORA (FABACEAE) BASED ON FLAVONOID PATTERNS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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. Los resultados sugieren que las dos especies de Juan Fernández derivaron de dos introducciones. No existe suficiente evidencia para relacionar el origen de S. masafuerana con representantes de Oceanía o de Sudamérica

Geologic map of the Cochetopa Park and North Pass Calderas, northeastern San Juan Mountains, Colorado  

Science.gov (United States)

The San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado have long been known as a site of exceptionally voluminous mid-Tertiary volcanism, including at least 22 major ignimbrite sheets (each 150-5,000 km3) and associated caldera structures active at 33-23 Ma. Recent volcanologic and petrologic studies in the San Juan region have focused mainly on several ignimbrite-caldera systems: the southeastern area (Platoro complex), western calderas (Uncompahgre-Silverton-Lake City), and the central cluster (La Garita-Creede calderas). Far less studied has been the northeastern San Juan region, which occupies a transition between earlier volcanism in central Colorado and large-volume younger ignimbrite-caldera foci farther south and west. The present map is based on new field coverage of volcanic rocks in seventeen 7.5' quadrangles in northeastern parts of the volcanic field, high-resolution age determinations for 120 new sites, and petrologic studies involving several hundred new chemical analyses. This mapping and the accompanying lab results (1) document volcanic evolution of the previously unrecognized North Pass caldera and the morphologically beautifully preserved but enigmatic Cochetopa basin, including unique features not previously described from ignimbrite calderas elsewhere; (2) provide evidence for a more rapid recurrence of large ignimbrite eruptions than previously known elsewhere; (3) quantify the regional time-space-volume progression from the earlier Sawatch magmatic trend southward into the San Juan region; and (4) permit more rigorous comparison between the broad mid-Tertiary magmatic belt in the western U.S. Cordillera and the type continental-margin arc volcanism in the central Andes.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available From its birth in Spain in the 17th century, the myth of Don Juan has been explored through a diversity of genres, approached by numerous artists, from a wide range of perspectives and artistic expressions, interpreted by philosophers and studied by scientists. This article analyzes the modifications that the mythic scenario displays in Jacques Weber’s cinematographic version, taking into account the specific issues related to the shift of language, from literature to cinema, alongside other aspects of similar interest. Furthermore, given the fact that the study case is the result of a film transposition from a particular literary text, in this case Molière’s account of Don Juan, we will analyse, first and foremost, the suitability of the original literary text to the mythic discourse.Desde su nacimiento en el siglo XVII español, el mito de Don Juan ha sido vertido en diferentes géneros, abordado por numerosos creadores, desde perspectivas y expresiones artísticas diversas, interpretado por filósofos y estudiado por científicos. Este artículo analiza las modificaciones que el escenario mítico presenta en la versión cinematográfica de Jacques Weber, teniendo en cuenta, además de otras causas de semejante interés, las relacionadas con el cambio de lenguaje: de la literatura al cine. Pero además, como el film estudiado es el resultado de la transposición fílmica de un texto literario particular, en este caso la versión donjuanesca de Molière, se analiza, en primer lugar, la adecuación al discurso mítico del texto literario de partida.

Juan de Fuca slab geometry and its relation to Wadati-Benioff zone seismicity  

Science.gov (United States)

A new model of the subducted Juan de Fuca plate beneath western North America allows first-order correlations between the occurrence of Wadati-Benioff zone earthquakes and slab geometry, temperature, and hydration state. The geo-referenced 3D model, constructed from weighted control points, integrates depth information from earthquake locations and regional seismic velocity studies. We use the model to separate earthquakes that occur in the Cascadia forearc from those that occur within the underlying Juan de Fuca plate and thereby reveal previously obscured details regarding the spatial distribution of earthquakes. Seismicity within the slab is most prevalent where the slab is warped beneath northwestern California and western Washington suggesting that slab flexure, in addition to expected metamorphic dehydration processes, promotes earthquake occurrence within the subducted oceanic plate. Earthquake patterns beneath western Vancouver Island are consistent with slab dehydration processes. Conversely, the lack of slab earthquakes beneath western Oregon is consistent with an anhydrous slab. Double-differenced relocated seismicity resolves a double seismic zone within the slab beneath northwestern California that strongly constrains the location of the plate interface and delineates a cluster of seismicity 10 km above the surface that includes the 1992 M7.1 Mendocino earthquake. We infer that this earthquake ruptured a surface within the Cascadia accretionary margin above the Juan de Fuca plate. We further speculate that this earthquake is associated with a detached fragment of former Farallon plate. Other subsurface tectonic elements within the forearc may have the potential to generate similar damaging earthquakes.

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

Science.gov (United States)

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

Abstract in english The article highlights Juan Serapio Lois´ work, and the context of the time in which he lived. Research concerning the history of psychology in Chile sets the beginning of psychological science in the country during 1889, when Dr. Jorge Enrique Schneider arrived at the Instituto Pedagógico of Universidad de Chile. However, the progress of historiography has identified Lois as an advanced pioneer, who performed important work influenced by Auguste Comte´s positivist thi (more) nking. The present study follows the rhizomatic methodology for the history of psychology and seeks to determine the reasons why Lois must be considered a pioneer of Chilean scientific psychology.

Calidad de la prescripción de propanonol en el área de salud "Dr. Carlos Juan Finlay" Quality of the propanolol prescription in "Dr. Carlos Juan Finlay" health area  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Se efectuó un estudio descriptivo y transversal de todos pacientes que consumían propanolol, independientemente de la edad, sexo, raza e indicación, a fin de evaluar la calidad de la prescripción de este medicamento por los facultativos (endocrinólogo, neurólogo y cardiólogo) responsables en el área de salud "Dr. Carlos Juan Finlay" de Santiago de Cuba. Los especialistas de medicina general integral tuvieron los peores resultados en cuanto a prescripción inadecuada durante el proceso, a diferencia de lo realizado por profesionales de las ramas de neurología y medicina interna. La evaluación de los resultados de la satisfacción de los proveedores de salud fue inadecuada y de los usuarios, adecuada.A descriptive and cross sectional study of all patients that were prescribed propanolol, independently of the age, sex, race and indication was carried out, in order to evaluate the quality of the prescription for this medication by doctors (endocrinologist, neurologist and cardiologist) who worked in "Dr. Carlos Juan Finlay" health area from Santiago de Cuba. The specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine had the worst results regarding inappropriate prescription during the process, contrary to what professionals from the neurology and internal medicine specialities do. The evaluation of the satisfaction results for the health providers was inappropriate and that of the users was appropriate.

Arquitectura estatal moderna en el eje cívico de la ciudad de San Juan, Argentina Modern State Architecture in the Civic Axis of the City of San Juan, Argentina Arquitetura Estatal Moderna no Eixo Civico da Cidade de San Juan, Argentina  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este artículo expone cómo influyen las ideas del Movimiento Moderno en la arquitectura estatal edificada en la ciudad de San Juan, durante el proceso de reconstrucción posterior al terremoto de 1944, en el marco de los acontecimientos sociopolíticos, las ideas arquitectónicas y las técnicas de la época. Se centra en el estudio de la avenida Paseo Central, eje cívico-institucional, inexistente en la cuadrícula fundacional y asiento de los principales edificios públicos posteriores al terremoto, que se conforma como expresión paradigmática de esta Modernidad, signando el carácter de la nueva ciudad. La metodología comprende tres fases integradas: prefigurativa, configurativa y refigurativa. Estas permiten la comparación entre las propuestas urbanas y arquitectónicas elaboradas por el Estado y su concreción en el campo real, develando cómo influyen los intereses privados y las políticas gubernamentales en la conformación del eje y cómo se manifiestan los principios del Movimiento Moderno en la edificación oficial.

Notações espaciais como formas de inteligibilidade cultural: Graciliano Ramos, José María Arguedas, Juan José Saer  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Resumo: Estudam-se, neste artigo, formas de desenhar o espaço literário com a perspectiva do “lugar” e do “movimento no lugar” em escritores com fortes vínculos com, pelo menos, duas tradições. É possível afirmar que cada tradição _ e dentro delas, cada período histórico _ consolida um modo de representação do espaço e, com isso, reflete uma visão de mundo particular. A expectativa é encontrar novas formas de inteligibilidade da cultura a partir dos problemas de figuração. Os três autores estudados são latino-americanos: José María Arguedas é peruano e considerado um escritor bicultural, sendo como foi ligado tanto às culturas indígenas de sua região (aymara e quéchua) quanto ao que de mais moderno apresentava a literatura de América Hispânica nas décadas de 50 e 60 (o realismo mágico e o testemunho); Graciliano Ramos é comumente associado à tradição literária brasileira no que esta tem de ocidental e moderna, mas mostra fortes vínculos com o interior do nordeste, o que lhe empresta um perfil ligado a dois aspectos determinantes da cultura brasileira; Juan José Saer é argentino e ligado, por um lado, à tradição argentina dos séculos XIX e XX, e, por outro, conectado, pelas circunstâncias de seu exílio (1968 até sua morte, em 2005) à França e à cultura européia. De Graciliano Ramos privilegia-se aqui seu romance Vidas Secas; de José Maria Arguedas seu conto A agonia de Rasu-Ñiti; de Juan José Saer, seu romance El limonero real.Palavras-chave: Graciliano Ramos; Vidas Secas; José María Arguedas; A agonia de Rasu-Ñiti; Juan José Saer; El limonero real; espaço; cultura.Resumen: Se estudian, en este artículo, formas de bosquejar el espacio literario desde la perspectiva del “lugar” y del “movimiento en el lugar” en escritores con fuertes vínculos con, por lo menos, dos tradiciones.

The lithostratigraphic nomenclature is analyzed and revised, the Las Aguaditas Formation is proposed for the carbonate succession that is overlying the San Juan Formation. The middle Darriwilian conodont faunas recovered from the studied stratigraphic interval allowed the usage of the Baltic biostratigraphic chart: the Eoplacognathus pseudoplanus and (more) the Eoplacognathus suecicus zones. The contact between the San Juan and Las Aguaditas formations is analyzed and correlation is possible with several localities of the Central Precordillera.

Taxonomy and biogeography of the coastal fishes of Juan Fernández Archipelago and Desventuradas Islands, Chile/ Taxonomía y biogeografía de los peces costeros del Archipiélago de Juan Fernández y de las islas Desventuradas, Chile  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Las islas Desventuradas (San Félix y San Ambrosio) y del Archipiélago de Juan Fernández (Robinson Crusoe y Alejandro Selkirk) son islas oceánicas de origen volcánico ubicadas en el Pacífico Sudeste, frente a Chile. Sobre la base de material recolectado desde 1997 hasta la fecha, revisiones de colecciones de las expediciones del R/V Anton Bruun y actualizaciones taxonómicas, la fauna de peces litorales del Archipélago de Juan Fernández y las islas Desventuradas ti (more) enen un total de 52 especies, con 41 y 43 especies, respectivamente. Los peces costeros endémicos de Juan Fernández son solamente cinco (12,2%) y tres son las especies registradas aquí como nuevas para las islas (Gymnothorax cf. obesus, Gnathophis sp., Suezichthys sp.). Las Desventuradas tienen solamente dos especies endémicas (4,6%) y cuatro son los nuevos registros (Scorpaenodes englerti, Maxillicosta reticulata, Suezichthys sp., Aseraggodes bahamondei). El reducido número de especies endémicas para Juan Fernández comparado con trabajos previos (15 especies) se debe a que muchas resultaron ser endémicas de ambos grupos de islas (22 especies = 42,3% total peces litorales), apoyando la propuesta que ambos grupos de islas debieran formar una sola unidad biogeográfica. La extensión oriental de la región Indo Pacífico Oeste para incluir la cordillera de Nazca, las islas Desventuradas y Juan Fernández encuentra apoyo en este trabajo. La afinidad zoogeográfica entre las Desventuradas y las islas del Pacífico Oeste (Isla de Pascua hasta Australia) incluye 16 especies, agregando cinco nuevos registros a listas anteriores. Filogenias de tres géneros señalan un centro de origen en el Pacífico Oeste, con uno o más eventos de dispersión hacia las islas Desventuradas y Juan Fernández. Este patrón de dispersión puede repetirse en otros siete géneros de pocas especies y relativamente restringidas en distribución. Solo una filogenia (Odontesthes) propone un origen continental con una dispersión hacia el Oeste, sin embargo otros tres géneros parecen tener este mismo patrón de dispersión. Abstract in english The Desventuradas Islands (San Félix and San Ambrosio) and Juan Fernández Archipelago (Robinson Crusoe and Alejandro Selkirk) are oceanic islands of volcanic origin located in the southeastern Pacific off Chile. Based on new material collected since 1997, revision of the R/V Anton Bruun expeditions collections, and a taxonomic update, the coastal fish fauna of Juan Fernández Archipelago and Desventuradas Islands found a total of 52 species, with 41 and 43 species, resp (more) ectively. The number of coastal fish species recorded herein as endemic for Juan Fernández is only five (12,2%) and three species are new records (Gymnothorax cf. obesus, Gnathophis sp., Suezichthys sp). The Desventuradas Islands have only two endemic species (4,6%) and four species are new records (Scorpaenodes englerti, Maxillicosta reticulata, Suezichthys sp., Aseraggodes bahamondei). The reduced number of endemic species for the Juan Fernández Islands as compared with previous accounts (15 species) is the result that more species were found to be endemic to both islands groups (22 species = 42,3% all coastal fishes), suggesting these two island groups should be considered a single biogeographic unit. The eastern extension of the Indo West Pacific Region to include the Nazca Ridge, Desventuradas and Juan Fernández Islands is supported herein. The zoogeographical affinities between Desventuradas and western Pacific Islands (Easter Island to Australia), includes 16 species, adding five new species to previous lists. Relationships of three genera indicate a Western Pacific origin with one or more dispersal events to the Desventuradas and Juan Fernández Islands. Another seven genera, with relatively few species and restricted distribution, may have this same pattern. Only one phylogenetic study indicates a continental origin with a westward dispersal (Odontesthes), however another three genera may have this same p

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Documents studied here and the analysis of the work demonstrate that the main altarpiece of Santa Isabel de los Reyes is one of the most outstanding examples of Toledan 16th-century sculpture. Commissioned in 1570, it was completed by 1572, according to the inscription on the altarpiece, which until now has remained anonymous. The discovery of two payment orders demonstrate that it was created by the architect and sculptor Juan Bautista Monegro, the woodcarver Andrés Sánchez and the painter-gilders Juan Sánchez Dávila and Pedro de Cisneros el Mozo, to whose respective catalogues this work should be added, particularly that of Juan Bautista Monegro. From the formal and stylistic point of view, the reliefs and statues by Monegro can be related to the best classicism of the Leoni.Las pruebas documentales aquí aportadas y el estudio de las formas artísticas, demuestran que el retablo mayor de Santa Isabel de los Reyes es una de las obras más sobresalientes de la escultura toledana del siglo XVI. Encargado antes de 1570, estaba concluido, como señala el epígrafe que preside el propio retablo, en el año 1572, siendo abadesa María de Guzmán. Ha permanecido como anónimo hasta la localización de dos órdenes de pago que lo documentan como obra del arquitecto y escultor Juan Bautista Monegro, del entallador Andrés Sánchez y de los pintores-doradores Juan Sánchez Dávila y Pedro de Cisneros el Mozo a cuyos respectivos catálogos debe incorporarse como obra destacada, especialmente en lo tocante al estudio de Juan Bautista Monegro, que fue el de mayor trascendencia de los cuatro. Desde el punto de vista formal y estilístico, sus relieves y esculturas se pueden relacionar con lo mejor del clasicismo de los Leoni.

Die Geschicke von Don Juan Tenorio in Barcelona: Skizze einer ignorierten Rezeption [The story of Don Juan Tenorio in Barcelona: Outline of a disregarded reception  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Against the common opinion that starting from Madrid (in 1844) José Zorilla’s Don Juan Tenorio began his triumph as an obligate and catharically cited play for All Soul’s Day soon after its premiere, its integration from 1847 onwards into the scenic ritual, that at that time had long since then been established in Barcelona, is documented here as well as its changeful development, that strongly differs from the development in Madrid, until it came to an end in 1974. This not only includes the many Spanish and especially Catalan theatre plays that derive from it and were represented alongside with it (variations, sequels, parodies, humoresques) but also its media utilisation for cinematographs, films and trivial reading (penny dreadful). The discussion accounts for cultural traditions, ideal positions and ethnopolitical and linguistic political attitudes as factors for the reception process.

Darriwilian bryozoans from the San Juan Formation (Ordovician), Argentine Precordillera/ Briozoos darriwilianos de la Formación San Juan (Ordovícico) de la precordillera argentina  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Se ha realizado un estudio taxonómico detallado de la fauna de briozoos de los niveles superiores (Darriwiliano) de la Formación San Juan en las secciones de Talacasto y Cerro Viejo, Precordillera Argentina. Se describen tres géneros y se definen dos nuevas especies: Lamottopora multispinosa sp. nov., Aostipora sanjuanensis sp. nov. y Phylloporinidae sp. indet. Se discute el significado paleoecológico de la fauna de briozoos. Los briozoos ramosos como Lamottopora y Ao (more) istopora dominan en la sección de Talacasto. Algunas colonias vivieron fijadas directamente sobre el sustrato, aunque también aparecen como epibiontes sobre la superficie de esponjas, que son muy abundantes en este intervalo. En la sección de Cerro Viejo los briozoos se encuentran mayoritariamente adheridos a la superficie de las esponjas, mientras que algunos fragmentos de briozoos ramosos, incluyendo dos colonias del briozoo reticulado Phylloporinidae sp. indet, aparecen en el sedimento. La presencia de estas formas delicadas en el Cerro Viejo es una nueva evidencia de la baja energía del agua como fue sugerido para estos niveles. En las calizas de la Formación San Juan sólo el género laminar Nicholsonella aparece en niveles algo más antiguos (Floiano). Esta baja diversidad muestra un desajuste con las curvas globales de diversidad del grupo. La primera radiación local (géneros), descripta en esta contribución, es también significativamente menor y muestra un desacople con la diversificación que experimenta el grupo para este mismo intervalo temporal en otras regiones. Abstract in english A detailed study is carried out on the taxonomy of the bryozoan fauna from the upper levels of the San Juan Formation (Darriwilian) in the Talacasto and Cerro Viejo sections, Argentinean Precordillera. Three bryozoan genera are described and two new species are erected: Lamottopora multispinosa sp. nov., Aostipora sanjuanensis sp. nov., and Phylloporinidae sp. indet. The paleoecological significance of the bryozoan fauna is discussed. The ramose bryozoans Lamottopora and (more) Aostipora dominate in the Talacasto section. Some colonies probably lived attached directly to the substrate, while others occur attached to the surface of the abundant sponge fauna in the section. The majority of bryozoans at the Cerro Viejo section occur as epibionts, with bases attached to the surface of sponges. Bryozoans collected in the matrix are scarce compared to the Talacasto section, and comprise a few fragments of ramose bryozoans and two small fragments of the reticulate Phylloporinidae sp. indet were recorded exclusively in this locality. The presence of this delicate form in Cerro Viejo is further evidence of the quiet water conditions suggested for these levels. Only the laminar form Nicholsonella occurs in slightly older levels (Floian) of the San Juan Formation. The low diversity recorded here shows a slight decoupling with the global pattern. The first local radiation (three genera) is minor compared with the important radiation that the phylum experienced elsewhere.

Estructura del paleozoico inferior en las nacientes del río Jachal, provincia de San Juan Lower Paleozoic structure in the headwaters of Río Jachal, San Juan Province  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Eufáusidos de la zona central de Chile, archipiélago Juan Fernández e islas Desventuradas Euphausiids of central zone of Chile, Juan Fernández Archipelago and Desventuradas Islands  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Se describe la composición, distribución y abundancia de los eufáusidos capturados entre Valparaíso (33°0'S, 71°40'W), el archipiélago de Juan Fernández (33°37'S, 68°49'W) y las islas Desventuradas (26°20'S, 80°00'W), entre septiembre y octubre de 2000. Se identificaron 22 especies pertenecientes a seis géneros {Euphausia, Nematobrachion, Nematoscelis, Stylocheiron, Thysanoessa y Thysanopoda). La mayor abundancia se encontró próxima a la costa de Valparaíso (6.238 ind 1000 m-3 ), sólo constituida por Euphausia mucronata (62,3%). Las capturas estuvieron influenciadas por la migración vertical diaria, lo que generó una discontinuidad en la distribución horizontal de la mayoría de los eufáusidos, dada la profundidad del muestreo (0-200 m). Se estableció una relación inversa entre la abundancia de E. mucronata y Nematoscelis megalops y la concentración de oxígeno disuelto.The species composition, geographical distribution and abundance of the euphausiids, captured in 64 sampling stations between Valparaíso (33°0'S, 71°40'W), Juan Fernández Archipelago (33°37'S, 68°49'W) and Desventuradas Islands (26°20'S, 80°00W) between September and October 2000, were de-scribed. Between euphausiids adults, a total of 22 species belonging to six genera were identified {Euphausia, Nematobrachion, Nematoscelis, Stylocheiron, Thysanoessa and Thysanopoda). The higher abundance was found near Valparaíso (6,238 ind 1000 m-3), only integrated by Euphausia mucronata (62,3%). The captures were influenced by the diel vertical migration, which generated a horizontal discontinuity in the distribution of most of the euphausiids, due to the sampling depth (0-200 m). An inverse correlation was estabhshed between the abundance of E. mucronata and Nematoscelis megalops and the dissolved oxygen concentration.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Los peces litorales del archipiélago de Juan Fernández (Chile): endemismo y relaciones ictiogeográficas The littoral fishes of the Juan Fernandez archipelago (Chile): endemism and ichthyogeographical relationships  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A la luz del conocimiento actual de la composición ictiofaunística del archipiélago de Juan Fernández, se relacionaron aquellas especies de hábitos netamente litorales (inter y submareales), para analizar cuáles de ellas son endémicas del archipiélago y cuáles están representadas en otras regiones. Las especies endémicas alcanzan 25,5%, aquellas representadas hacia el occidente el 19,6%, las representadas hacia el oriente 15,6%, las consideradas transpacíficas 9,8% y las comunes con el cercano archipiélago de Islas Desventuradas, 29,4%. Se reconoce que hay un vínculo ligeramente mayor con áreas polinésicas y el Pacífico Occidental, que con las costas sudamericanas propiamente tales. Esto da lugar a pensar en un respaldo a la idea que la región zoogeográfica del Pacífico Indico-Occidental, al menos en cuanto a peces, podría propagarse hasta estas islas oceánicasAccording to current knowledge on ichthyofaunistic composition of Juan Fernandez archipelago, those species typically littoral (inter and subtidal) were selected to analize which of them are endemic and which ones are represented in other regions. Endemic species correspond to 25.5%; those represented westward are 19.6% and the eastward ones are 15.6%. Transpacific species represent 9.8% of the total, whereas 29.4% of the species are in common with Desventuradas islands. A slightly higher link with Polynesian and West Pacific areas is recognised, if compared with the proper Southamerican coastlines. This supports to give background to the idea that the Indo-West Pacific zoogeographic region, at least in relation to fishes, can be extended to this oceanic islands

LA CAÍDA DE UNA ARTESANÍA: CESTERÍA EN SAN JUAN GUELAVIA, OAXACA THE COLLAPSE OF A CRAFT: BASKETMAKING IN SAN JUAN GUELAVIA, OAXACA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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.

Un realismo de lo irreal: la imaginación material en la obra de Juan José Saer Realism of the Unreal: Material Imagination in Juan José Saer's Works  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este trabajo propone una lectura de la narrativa de Juan José Saer desde la fenomenología de Gaston Bachelard. El análisis recae sobre tres novelas que se consideran representativas del autor argentino y consiste en una indagación de lo que Bachelard, en sus análisis poéticos, llama imaginación material. Tal noción permite reinscribir la interrogación sobre el realismo saeriano, pensado en general por la crítica en términos de representación y relacionado con un problema tópico de esta narrativa como es el de la percepción. La lectura no postula una simple traslación metodológica, sino que encuentra su potencial en el problema que implica el abordaje de una narración postulada como realista desde la fenomenología microscópica bachelardiana, elaborada para la poesía o para narraciones fantásticas.

This reading does not propose a simple methodological transfer but finds its potential in the realistic approach to a piece of writing carried out from the microscopic phenomenology of Bachelard, who studied mainly poetry and fantastic narratives. It is about an inherent problem to Saer's narrative, that is to say, the tension between liberation of material imagination in a narrative regulated by formal imagination, which is related to the novel structure and to the prerogatives of realistic verisimilitude.

LA CONSTRUCCIÓN RETÓRICA DEL CONFLICTO ARMADO EN EL DISCURSO DEL PRESIDENTE JUAN MANUEL SANTOS RHETORICAL CONSTRUCTION OF ARMED CONFLICT THROUGH THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS OF JUAN MANUEL SANTOS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Se analiza el reconocimiento legal de la situación violenta en Colombia bajo la denominación de Conflicto armado interno, a través del discurso presidencial del 14 de mayo de 2011, en el marco de la polémica suscitada por el texto de la Ley 1448. El análisis está concentrado en el funcionamiento de la lógica argumental de Juan Manuel Santos a favor de tal reconocimiento, desde la perspectiva francesa de la argumentación retórica. En las conclusiones, se sostiene que el tratamiento de temas controversiales bajo políticas de la legalización y el consenso ideal, agravan la radicalización de las posiciones opuestas, y con ello, la polarización de la opinión pública, no ya en una aceptación de la diferencia a través de la coexistencia en el disenso, sino en la anulación (discursiva algunas veces, violenta y brutal en otras más) del Otro como sujeto social.It analyzes the legal recognition of the violent situation in Colombia under the name of internal armed conflict, through the presidential address May 14, 2011, as part of the controversy by the 1448 Act.

In conclusion, it is argued that the treatment of controversial issues under legalization policies and consensus ideal, aggravate the radicalization of the opposing positions, and thus the polarization of public opinion, not an acceptance of difference coexistence through dissent, but the cancellation (discursive sometimes violent and brutal in others) the Other as a social subject.

[The examination of men's wits by Juan Huarte de San Juan, and the dawn of the neurobiology of intelligence in the Spanish renaissance  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

INTRODUCTION: The Spanish renaissance doctor Juan Huarte de San Juan (1529-1588) was the author of a unique and immortal work, The Examination of Men's Wits, the edition princeps of which was printed in Baeza in 1575. Since then it has been reprinted at least 80 times and translated into seven languages, which makes it the most influential Spanish contribution to medicine ever published. DEVELOPMENT: In this paper we review the unjustly little-known figure of Huarte as the founder of Neuropsychology, and we also analyse his works from a historical and neuroscientific point of view. Huarte's writings deal with the problem of the organic relations between the brain and understanding, and accept the possible influences exerted by temper on the will within the field of the Neurobiology of Intelligence. Thus, over four centuries ago Huarte became the founder of Differential or Physiological Psychology, Neuropsychology, Eugenics and Career Guidance. CONCLUSIONS: Huarte's work not only played a fundamental role in the history and development of the body of neuroscientific knowledge, but has also been a clear (although not always cited) influence on scientists, philosophers and men of letters such as Alarcón, Bacon, Cabanis, Cervantes (whose Don Quixote was inspired by him), Charron, Chomsky, Gall, Goethe, Hume, Kant, Kretchmer, Lessing, Lope de Vega, Montaigne, Montesquieu, Nietzsche, Quevedo, Rousseau, Schopenhauer, Thomasius, Tirso de Molina and Ziegler. In the middle of the 16th century, Huarte and his Examination of Men's Wits, together with the works of the naturalist philosophers Gómez Pereira (Antoniana Margarita, 1554) and Miguel Sabuco (New Philosophy, 1587), constituted the prestigious triumvirate of Spanish Renaissance scholars who, for the first time in history, contemplated the workings of the brain from a point of view that had more to do with science than the supernatural.

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Este artículo es una síntesis de la compilación, evaluación y re-interpretación de la información geológica, geofísica y geoquímica de las Cuencas Atrato y San Juan. En el área anteriormente denominada como Cuenca Chocó, hoy se distinguen dos cuencas Cenozoicas con tendencia N-S: (1) Cuenca Atrato y (2) Cuenca San Juan. Se extienden en el rumbo por más de 280 km desde el delta actual del río San Juan en el suroeste, hasta el Arco de Panama s.s. en el Norte. E (more) l presente estudio define que estas cuencas están separadas por el Alto estructural de Istmina-Condoto que actúa como barrera intermitente, sirve de límite y conexión temporal de las dos cuencas, cada una con su propia historia geológica. La Cuenca Deltáica de San Juan presenta una acumulación de sedimentos de hasta 9 kilómetros (?), que comienza probablemente en el Paleoceno (?). La Cuenca de Antearco del Atrato alberga sedimentos con un espesor aproximado de 10 km. Tanto una como otra cuenca están suficientemente estructuradas, cada una en su propio estilo, siendo las fallas crecimiento las que controlan la cuenca Atrato y en la Cuenca San Juan, el estilo estructural está enmarcado por la deformación del Alto Istmina-Condoto y la Falla Garraptas; las estructuras, principalmente postmiocénicas, de dimensiones significativas, pueden ser trampas para acumulaciones importantes de hidrocarburos. Abstract in english The geological, geophysical and geochemical data pertaining the previously known as Choco Basin, was compiled and reinterpreted. Today, two distinc Cenozoic basins, the Atrato Basin and the San Juan Basin are identified, each with its own geological history. They are bounded by the Istmina- Condoto Structural High, in fact, a paleo-high which intermitently acts as sedimentary barrier, i.e. source area. In the San Juan Delta Basin up to 9 km (?) of mainly clastic sediments (more) were deposited, most probably since Paleocene time. In the Atrato Fore Arc Basin a 10 km thickness of Cenozoic sediments were seismically recorded. Both basins are sufficiently structured, as to produce potential hydrocarbon traps, mainly post-Miocene in age. The tecto-sedimentary framework in the San Juan Basin is controlled by the Istmina-Condoto Fault System in the NW and the Garrapatas Fault System in the SE. In the Atrato Basin the occurrence of growth faults is an outstanding feature.

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

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

[en] 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)

Source rock evaluation, oil-source rock correlation, and kinetic modeling - San Juan Sag, CO  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Recently, oil and gas shows have been reported in Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks of the San Juan sag, and minor oil production was established from volcanic rocks (Kirby Petroleum 1 Jynnifer well, Sec. 9, T40N, R5E.). Potential source rocks present in the San Juan sag are the upper and lower (including the Niobrara Member) Mancos Shale (Upper Cretaceous). The combined upper and lower Mancos Shale is about 666 m thick and contains between about 0.5 and 5.5% organic carbon, although most values are between about 1.5 and 2.0%. The Niobrara Member of the lower Mancos Shale has the highest overall organic matter content in the section (organic carbon averages <2.0%). Pyrolysis and solvent extraction data (typically 2,000-6,000 and 1,000-4,000 ppm, respectively) indicate that the upper and lower Mancos Shale and the Niobrara Member are all good potential source rocks for oil and gas. Oil-source rock correlations using gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, and stable carbon isotope ratios indicate that the upper Mancos Shale is the most likely source for the oil produced from the 1 Jynnifer discovery well. The source of the oil produced from the nearby Gramps field is less certain, but may be the lower Mancos Shale or Niobrara Member. The hydrocarbon generation history of the San Juan sag is complex because of highly variable heat flow in the area caused by Oligocene volcanism. Sills have caused thermal alteration of organic matter in shales on a local scale, and larger volcanic bodies may have produced proportionality larger thermal effects. More regional heating by larger volcanic bodies is an important factor in the oil generation history of the area. The authors have constructed kinetic models at several locations in the area to estimate the timing and amount of hydrocarbon products generated from the source rocks. The main phase of oil and gas generation and expulsion occurred during the Oligocene.

Community-based enterprises and the commons: The case of San Juan Nuevo Parangaricutiro, Mexico  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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.

La jineta indiana en los textos de Juan Suárez de Peralta y Bernardo de Vargas Machuca  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Not available.Una vertiente importante de la bibliografía hispánica de los siglos XVI y XVII fue la dedicada a tratar las técnicas y ejercicios de la caballería, particularmente según dos escuelas de andar a caballo, la de la brida y la de la jineta, a la que generalmente se reconoció como la tradicional española. Aquí se analiza la peculiar participación dentro de esa literatura de dos autores indianos, por lo demás de personalidad muy interesante: el criollo novohispano Juan Suárez de Peralta (México, hacia 1537-España, después de 1596) y el capitán baquiano Bernardo de Vargas Machuca (Simancas, hacia 1555- Madrid, 1622).

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Development of microsatellite markers in Robinsonia (Asteraceae) an endemic genus of the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Chile.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

Ten microsatellite markers were developed for Robinsonia (Asteraceae), a genus endemic to the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Chile. Polymorphisms of these markers were tested using one population each of R. evenia, R. gayana, and R. gracilis. The number of alleles for these markers ranged from 2 to 17 per locus, and expected heterozygosity ranged from 0 to 0.847 by population. A significant deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was observed in zero to two markers in each population, and no significant linkage disequilibrium between markers was detected. The markers reported here would be useful for evolutionary studies and conservation strategies in Robinsonia.

Traces of the Sacred in the Poetry of Juan Eduardo Cirlot  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Juan Eduardo Cirlot (1916-1973), a peculiar and iconoclastic poet, creates with Bronwyn, a collection of poems, one of the most suggestive and attractive imaginary universes in 20th century Spanish literature. Interested in musical serialism, cabbala, simbolism and almost all ancient and modern literary traditions, Cirlot chooses topics from all these sources to combine them with his own spiritual search. Our critical method is based in symbolic analysis the study of the nature and meaning of elements (Bachelard, Poulet, Cassirer, etc.), in order to understand those aspects of Cirlot’s poetry related with his creation.

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

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

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

[Didn't it matter to him absolutely?: Juan Vilanova and the controversy about tertiary man].  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

During the founding period of palaeoanthropology, the postulate about tertiary age of humankind was an outstanding subject. First proposals were based on supposed proofs about ancient lithical industry (eoliths). Some discoveries of human fossil remains complicated that issue, because they were dated as pliocene or oldest. This controversy about so-called "tertiary man" soon arrived to Spain. Juan Vilanova y Piera, palaeontologist and professor at Madrid, dealt with it from an antievolutionist point of view. When a human fossil skeleton, included in the Botet's collections, with several apparently primitive traits arrived to Valencia from Argentina, Vilanova got reasserted and exposed his ideas about this question more intensely.

Aquifer-protection considerations of coalbed methane methane development in the San Juan basin  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Coalbed methane development in the San Juan basin has caused concern about several environmentally related health, safety, and remediation issues. This paper presents the findings of four groundwater-sampling programs and aquifer-protection work on producing wells and deep cathodic-protection groundbeds. The study concludes that Fruitland coal gas can migrate vertically behind uncemented wellbores that offset Fruitland coal gas wells, that remedial cementing of offsetting producing wells is feasible but costly, and that methane detected in domestic water wells near Fruitland coal development cannot be correlated directly to Fruitland coal gas development

Colecistectomía abierta versus laparoscópica: experiencia en el Hospital San Juan de Dios  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La cirugía laparoscópica es una técnica mínimamente invasiva de uso cotidiano en el ámbito mundial. Desde hace quince años, la colecistectomía laparoscópica es un procedimiento seguro y muy valioso a disposición del cirujano. Este estudio tiene como fin comparar los resultados de la colecistectomía laparoscópica en el Hospital San Juan de Dios con la técnica de la colecistectomía abierta ó tradicional. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio retrospectivo de todos los pacientes colecistectomizados desde julio de 1996 a junio de 1999, en el Hospital San Juan de Dios en Costa Rica. Al comparar las dos técnicas quirúrgicas (clásica y laparoscópica), se consideró la evolución posoperatoria y las posibles complicaciones que aparecen posteriores al acto quirúrgico. Además se buscaron las contraindicaciones que dicha técnica pudiese tener. Resultados : Fueron revisados un total de 3193 pacientes colecistectomizados, de los cuales 476 fueron operados por laparoscopia. Se tuvo en éstas menos complicaciones posquirúrgicas y menor estancia posoperatoria que en las colecistectomías abiertas. También se notó una disminución paulatina del tiempo quirúrgico en los actos por laparoscopia. Conclusión: Se comprueban las ventajas de la cirugía invasiva mínima y se documenta que este tipo de abordaje es más seguro y beneficioso para el paciente y para el médico mismo.Justification: Today, laparoscopic surgery as a least invasive technique is widely used in the world. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a valuable and safe technique and is has been available to the general surgeon for the last 15 years. In Costa Rica it has become a pretty common procedure with great results but they have not been well studied and documented. This study aims to expose part of the work that takes place at the Hospital San Juan de Dios with laparoscopic cholecystectomy and highlights the results in contrast with those of traditional cholecystectomy. Methodology: Aretrospective study was conducted of all the cholecystectomies performed at the Hospital San Juan de Dios in Costa Rica from July 1996 to June 1999. A comparative analysis between the classic and the laparoscopic approach was completed considering post-operative evolution and postoperative complications. Results: A total of 3193 cholecystectomies, were reviewed, 476 were laparoscopic cholecystectomies, they had less post-operative complications and less post-operative recovery time as opposed to the open cholecystectomies. The study showed further a progressive diminution of the operative time in the laparoscopic group. Conclusions : Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a safe procedure and it carries several advantages both for thepatient and the surgeon.

The article highlights his work with the Pan American Health Organization and his perspective of analyzing social medicine an (more) d the social sciences by relating them not only to the Latin American historical, social, economic, and political context, but also to historical materialism: linking medicine to the social structure; the influence of the social structure on the production and distribution of diseases; internal analysis of the production of medical services; and the relationship between training of health personnel and the medical field. As demonstrated, even today his work can be a reference for the discussion of such themes as medical education, health personnel training, the role of science and technology, the social sciences in medical education, and historical aspects of public health.

Geothermal studies in the San Juan Basin and the Four Corners area of the Colorado Plateau. 2. Steady-state models of the thermal source of the San Juan volcanic field  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The increase of heat flow approaching the San Juan volcanic field depicts a smooth profile having a relatively large half width, perhaps 50-100 km. One may suggest thermal sources creating the observed anomaly at equivalent depths under, or in proximity to, the San Juan volcanic field. Although the cause of the increased heat flow approaching the San Juan field may be in part associated with more regional Southern Rocky Mountain tectonics; geologic, heat-flow, and seismic data support the idea of a separate thermal source associated with the San Juan volcanic field. It can be shown that cooling and solidification of very deep magma bodies (to 75 km) provide less heat than required by the observed anomaly. Replenishment of the thermal source causing the heat-flow anomaly is postulated. This replenishment is approximated in a limiting case by developing finite-difference steady-state models. The best models are consistent with a plume which rises from depths of at least 100 km to depths as shallow as 35 km, whose edge is about 10 km south of Durango. (4 figs., 18 refs., 4 tables).

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

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Horizontal and vertical thermal maturity patterns and time-temperature modeling of Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks in the San Juan Basin of southwestern Colorado and northwestern New Mexico indicate that the high levels of thermal maturity in the northern part of the basin are due to either (1) convective heat transfer associated with a deeply buried heat source located directly below the northern part of the basin or (2) the circulation of relatively hot fluids into the basin from a heat source north of the basin located near the San Juan Mountains. Vitrinite-reflectance (R[sub m]) well profiles through Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks in the basin are commonly nonlinear, with two to four segments having different gradients. The different gradients most likely represent the combined effects of contrasting thermal conductivities associated with lithologic variations and differences in heat transfer processes (conductive versus convective). Time-temperature and kinetic modeling of nonlinear R[sub m] profiles indicates that present-day heat flow is insufficient to account for the measured levels of thermal maturity. Furthermore, in order to match the nonlinear R[sub m] profiles, it is necessary to assign artificially high thermal-conductivity values to some of the stratigraphic units. These unrealistically high thermal conductivities are interpreted as evidence of convective heat transfer. 50 refs., 12 figs., 2 tabs.

Application of an area of review variance methodology to the San Juan Basin, New Mexico  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

When the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Regulations were promulgated in 1980, existing Class II Injection wells operating at the time were excluded from Area of Review (AOR) requirements. EPA has expressed its intent to revise the regulations to include the requirement for AOR`s for such wells, but it is expected that oil and gas producing states will be allowed to adopt a variance strategy for these wells. An AOR variance methodology has been developed under sponsorship of the American Petroleum Institute. The general concept of the variance methodology is a systematic evaluation of basic variance criteria that were agreed to by a Federal Advisory Committee. These criteria include absence of USDWs, lack of positive flow potential from the petroleum reservoir into the overlying USDWs, mitigating geological factors, and other evidence. The AOR variance methodology has been applied to oilfields in the San Juan Basin, New Mexico. This paper details results of these analyses, particularly with respect to the opportunity for variance for injection fields in the San Juan Basin.

A Geo-referenced 3D model of the Juan de Fuca Slab and associated seismicity  

Science.gov (United States)

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.

Juan Bautista Pérez and the Plomos de Granada: Spanish Humanism in the Late Sixteenth Century  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This article addresses the Parecer of the humanist Juan Bautista Pérez (d. 1597), one of the earliest critics of the relics unearthed in Granada in the decade after 1588. Given his relatively progressive morisco policy as bishop of Segorbe, Pérez might well have welcomed the plomos, which created a history that encompassed both Muslims and Christians. His humanist training, however, led him to conclude that the plomos were a modem forgery, and that their veneration would lead the Spanish people astray. The Parecer (1595) of Pérez represents one example of scholarly rigor, creativity, and religious devotion among Spanish humanists in the later sixteenth century.Este trabajo examina el parecer del obispo y humanista Juan Bautista Pérez (ca. 1534-1597), uno de los primeros críticos de las reliquias desenterradas en Granada a partir de 1588. Dada su política morisca bastante progresista en la diócesis de Segorbe, bien habría podido Pérez aprobar la aparición de los plomos, que creaban una historia común para cristianos y musulmanes. Su erudición, por el contrario, le hizo concluir que los plomos fueron una fabricación moderna, y que su veneración pondría en peligro de desviación religiosa al pueblo español. El parecer de Pérez (1595) es un ejemplo de rigor, creatividad, y devoción religiosa entre los humanistas de finales del siglo XVI.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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.

Juan de Solórzano Pereira y la defensa del indio en América  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Juan de Caramuel y su “Declaración mystica de las armas de España” (Bruselas, 1636)  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In 1636, coinciding with a decisive moment in the Thirty Year’s War, Juan de Caramuel y Lobkowitz published in Brussels the Declaración Mystica de las Armas de España, invictamente belicosas (Mystical Declaration of the Arms of Spain, invincibly warlike), dedicated to the Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand of Austria. This publication was in fact a symbolic and mystical eulogium of the arms of the Hispanic Monarchy, through the explanation of each of the coats of arms pertaining to the kingdoms constituting the monarchy. These discourses provide emblematic content for the heraldry of kingdoms, and constitute the models for many subsequent series of festive hieroglyphs, which were to represent political territories or geographical allegories by means of symbolically explained coats of arms.Coincidiendo con un momento álgido de la Guerra de los Treinta Años, Juan de Caramuel y Lobkowitz publica en Bruselas en 1636 la Declaración Mystica de las Armas de España, invictamente belicosas, dedicada al Cardenal Infante Don Fernando de Austria. Se trata de una apología místico simbólica de las armas de la monarquía hispánica a través de la explicación de cada uno de los escudos de los reinos que componen la monarquía. Sus discursos dotan de contenido emblemático a los blasones de reinos y establecen las pautas de muchas series de jeroglíficos festivos posteriores que representarán territorios políticos o alegorías por medios de escudos explicados simbólicamente.

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

Sedimentología y evolución del campo de dunas de Médanos Grandes (provincia de San Juan, Argentina) Sedimentology and evolution of Médanos Grandes dunefield (San Juan province, Argentina)  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available El campo eólico de Médanos Grandes, sudeste de la provincia de San Juan (Argentina), es uno de los más extensos del país y está formado por distintos tipos de dunas, principalmente transversales y longitudinales. Junto a éstas aparecen grandes megaformas eólicas o draas, de hasta 70 metros de altura y 2000 metros de espaciamiento. El análisis de imágenes satelitales permitió identificar cinco unidades geomorfológicas caracterizadas por geoformas de diferente morfología, tamaño, orientación y dirección de migración. En la unidad geomórfica 1 (UG1) se incluyen draas de crestas transversales (orientadas al azimut 150º), ligeramente sinuosas, con dunas menores sobreimpuestas. La disposición de sus caras de sotavento indica que este conjunto se desarrolló a partir de paleovientos del sudoeste. En la conformación de la UG2 aparecen también draas transversales con dunas asociadas, sin embargo en este caso la orientación de los primeros evidencia paleovientos del noreste. Por otro lado, las dunas menores se disponen de forma oblicua y se habrían, por lo tanto, formado con posterioridad. En la UG3, ubicada en el centro del campo eólico, se destaca la presencia de grandes hoyos de deflación, de hasta 1000 metros de diámetro y 50 metros de desnivel con respecto a las dunas adyacentes. Así mismo, esta unidad se caracteriza por un diseño enrejado de médanos, resultado de la interferencia de las crestas de los draas pertenecientes a las unidades 1 y 2. La UG4 comprende dunas longitudinales, de hasta 40 metros de altura y 150 metros de espaciamiento, que se asocian a pequeñas dunas transversales. La disposición de las dunas longitudinales, junto con la orientación de las caras de sotavento de las formas menores, indican paleovientos del sud-sudeste. Por último, la UG5 está integrada por dunas transversales, barjanoides y longitudinales, que ocupan la periferia del campo eólico aquí estudiado. Constituye la unidad más moderna y respondería también a vientos del sud-sudeste similares a los actuales. Las geoformas eólicas de Médanos Grandes están formadas por arenas finas (X= 2,88 ø), muy bien seleccionadas (s= 0,45 ø) y con distribuciones granulométricas unimodales y simétricas (SK 1 = 0,05). El percentil del 1 % corresponde a la arena mediana (1,87 ø) y el material inferior a 53 ? conforma en promedio el 1,05 % de las muestras. En cuanto a la composición de las arenas predominan los fragmentos líticos (clastos de volcanitas, mayormente ácidas y mesosilícicas, esquistos micáceos, anfibolitas, milonitas, chert, sedimentitas y calizas), junto a moderados porcentajes de feldespatos y muy baja proporción de cuarzo y minerales pesados. La presencia de geoformas con diferente morfología y orientación indica que el sistema eólico de Médanos Grandes es policíclico ya que en su conformación se sucedieron distintos episodios de crecimiento, bajo distintos patrones de vientos. Las unidades geomórficas identificadas pueden ser tentativamente correlacionadas con los estadios climáticos propuestos por autores anteriores para la región pampeana. Finalmente, en la actualidad el campo eólico de Médanos Grandes se halla parcialmente erodado debido a la acción fluvial, constituyendo probablemente un remanente de un extenso sistema eólico que cubría gran parte del valle del Bermejo.Médanos 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.

Geology, thermal maturation, and source rock geochemistry in a volcanic covered basin: San Juan sag, south-central Colorado  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The San Juan sag, concealed by the vast San Juan volcanic field of south-central Colorado, has only recently benefited from oil and gas wildcat drilling and evaluations. Sound geochemical analyses and maturation modeling are essential elements for successful exploration and development. Oil has been produced in minor quantities from an Oligocene sill in the Mancos Shale within the sag, and major oil and gas production occurs from stratigraphically equivalent rocks in the San Juan basin to the southwest and in the Denver basin to the northeast. The objectives of this study were to identify potential source rocks, assess thermal maturity, and determine hydrocarbon-source bed relationships. Source rocks are present in the San Juan sag in the upper and lower Mancos Shale (including the Niobrara Member), which consists of about 666 m (2184 ft) of marine shale with from 0.5 to 3.1 wt. % organic carbon. Pyrolysis yields (S{sub 1} + S{sub 2} = 2000-6000 ppm) and solvent extraction yields (1000-4000 ppm) indicate that some intervals within the Mancos Shale are good potential source rocks for oil, containing type II organic matter, according to Rock-Eval pyrolysis assay.

Inventario de procesos de remoción en masa de un sector del departamento Iglesia, San Juan Inventory of landslides processes in a region of the Iglesia Department, San Juan  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

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

Plantas triásicas del Grupo Rincón Blanco, provincia de San Juan, Argentina/ Triassic plants from the Rincón Blanco Group, San Juan Province, Argentina  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in spanish Los niveles fluviales y lacustres de las formaciones Portezuelo y Casa de Piedra, Grupo Rincón Blanco, Triásico Medio a Superior de la provincia de San Juan, portan una tafoflora característica. Los restos paleoflorísticos de la Formación Portezuelo son relativamente escasos e incluyen principalmente peltaspermales (Lepidopteris madagascariensis Carpentier y Antevsia sp.), junto a Bennettitales (Taeniopteris sp.), y probables Coniferales (Incertae sedis (escama ovul? (more) ?fera?) sp. B) y frondes de pteridospermas (Incertae sedis sp. A). Las plantas fósiles recuperadas de la Formación Casa de Piedra son más abundantes e incluyen principalmente Corystospermales (Dicroidium incisum (Du Toit) Anderson y Anderson, D. odontopteroides var. moltense Retallack, D. odontopteroides var. obtusifolium Johnston, D. odontopteroides var. remotum (Szajnocha) Retallack, Xylopteris densifolia (Du Toit) Frenguelli, X. remotipinnulia (Anderson y Anderson) comb. nov., X. rigida (Dun) Jain y Delevoyras, X. spinifolia (Tenison-Woods) Frenguelli y Zuberia zuberi (Szajnocha) Frenguelli, aunque también hay Sphenophyta (Neocalamites sp.) y Cycadales (Pseudoctenis sp. A y P. sp. B). La flora del Grupo Rincón Blanco representaría fundamentalmente un sustrato de vegetación herbácea y arbustiva. A pesar que las Formaciones Portezuelo y Casa de Piedra han sido referidas a los pisos Cortaderitiano y Floriano, en base a correlaciones regionales, la falta de taxones diagnósticos dificulta la comparación de la flora del Grupo Rincón Blanco con las biozonas locales. Abstract in english Fluvial and lacustrine strata of the Portezuelo and Casa de Piedra Formations, Rincón Blanco Group, Middle to Upper Triassic of San Juan province, yield a distinctive taphoflora. The Portezuelo Formation plant remains are relatively scarce and mostly include peltasperms (Lepidopteris madagascariensis Carpentier and Antevsia sp.), together with Bennettitales (Taeniopteris sp.), and probable Coniferales (Incertae sedis (ovule scale?) sp.

The fossil plant assemblage recovered from the Casa de Piedra Formation is more abundant and mainly includes Corystospermales (Dicroidium incisum (Du Toit) Anderson and Anderson, D. odontopteroides var. moltense Retallack, D. odontopteroides var. obtusifolium Johnston, D. odontopteroides var. remotum (Szajnocha) Retallack, Xylopteris densifolia (Du Toit) Frenguelli, X. remotipinnulia (Anderson and Anderson) comb. nov., X. rigida (Dun) Jain and Delevoyras, X. spinifolia (Tenison-Woods) Frenguelli and Zuberia zuberi (Szajnocha) Frenguelli, but also Sphenophyta (Neocalamites sp.) and Cycadales (Pseudoctenis sp. A and P. sp. B). The flora of the Rincón Blanco Group would chiefly represent a substratum of herbaceous and shrubby vegetation. Although the Portezuelo and Casa de Piedra Formations have been referred to the Cortaderitian and Florian stages, on the basis of regional correlations, the lack of diagnostic taxa difficult close comparisons of the Rincón Blanco Group flora with local biozones.

Seed germination of species of the Juan Fernández archipiélago under laboratory conditions Germinación de semillas de especies del Archipiélago de Juan Fernández en condiciones de laboratorio  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The Juan Fernández Islands contain one of the world's most interesting floras. However, their conservation status is fragile due to direct and indirect human activities. With the aim of contributing to the conservation of the native species of these islands, germination trials have been performed under laboratory conditions. We studied the germination patterns and characteristics of 25 taxa of the archipelago, at temperatures between 15°C and 25°C, with 12.5 h. of photoperiod. Thirty-five percent of the studied species germinated immediately (within the first month after sowing), while 50% had a delayed germination. Three species did not germinate. Regarding the germination pattern, nine taxa (53%) germinated synchronously (³ 90% of seeds germinated within a month after the first germination), while the remaining 47% germinated asynchronously. Most species showed a high germinative potential (³50% of germination). Generally, the germination results were good for most species assayed, with few species requiring special treatments as scarification. For each species, the pre-germinative treatments, germination characteristics and patterns are detailed and discussed in relation to other published antecedentsLas Islas Juan Fernández contienen una de las floras más interesantes del mundo.

Con respecto al patrón de germinación, nueve especies (53%) germinaron sincrónicamente (³ 90% de las semillas germinaron dentro del primer mes después de la primera germinación), por el contrario el 47% germinó asincrónicamente. La mayoría de las especies ensayadas presentaron un alto potencial germinativo (³ 50% de germinación). En términos generales, los resultados de germinación fueron buenos para la mayoría de las especies ensayadas, con pocas especies requiriendo tratamientos especiales tales como la escarificación. En el presente estudio se discuten con detalle los tratamientos pre-germinativos, las características y los patrones de germinación para cada una de las especies ensayadas, en relación con otros antecedentes publicados.

Full Text Available Se realizó un estudio longitudinal y descriptivo luego de un análisis del estudio psicosocial realizado en Cuba en el año 2003 sobre discapacidad y retraso mental para la determinación de las causas prenatales que contribuyeron a elevar las tasas de estas en la provincia de Pinar del Río, y específicamente en nuestro territorio; con el objetivo de caracterizar biopsicosocial el Síndrome de Down en San Juan y Martínez en el año 2008. Para ello se revisó la base de datos donde encontramos que existe un predominio del retraso mental, y al analizar las principales causas prenatales nos llama la atención que existe un total de 29 casos con esta discapacidad decidiéndonos a realizar esta investigación. Se trabajó en el ámbito de las familias de pacientes con Síndrome de Down a través de una entrevista que se les realizó al familiar responsable para poder elaborar la caracterización de estos pacientes y su familia y poder saber además que conocimientos tienen estas personas sobre la enfermedad y manejo de los pacientes para su incorporación a la sociedad. Realizamos la caracterización de la familia teniendo en cuenta las variables investigativas seleccionadas. Se demostró que el 79.3% de los pacientes presentan alguna malformación cardiaca, el 72.4% vive en zonas rurales y el 44.8% tiene necesidad de orientación especializada. Los pacientes son preparados para el futuro por sus familiares de forma adecuada. Los datos obtenidos fueron procesados por el método estadístico porcentual y chi cuadrado.A longitudinal descriptive study was conducted after analysing the psychosocial study performed in Cuba in year 2003 on disability and mental ratardation in order to determine the prenatal causes which contribute to increase the rates in Pinar del Rio province, particularly in our territory and aimed at characterizing the Down's syndrome in San Juan y Martínez in year 2008.Data base showed a prevalence of mental retardation (29 cases).The family was interviewed for being aware of how they manage these patients and how they include them in the society.The characterization of the family was done taking into account the selected variables.It was demonstrated that 79.3% present some cardiac malformations, 72,4% live in rural areas and 44.8% need special orientation.These patients are guided by members of the family properly.

Se encontró un mayor número de hombres que mujeres en la muestra estudiada. En ambos grupos predominaron las edades superiores a 56 años. La cardiopatía isquémica sin angina fue la forma clínica que prevaleció, mientras que las alteraciones del segmento S-T predominaron entre los hallazgos electrocardiográficos. El hábito de fumar, el sedentarismo y la hipertensión arterial fueron los factores de riesgo más frecuentes en la serie. Los mismos se incrementaron a medida que aumento la edad, y todos predominaron de manera significativa en el grupo con cardiopatía isquémica. Se encontró una relación directamente proporcional entre los factores de riesgo asociados entre sí y la cardiopatía isquémica.Ischemic Heart Disease is a health problem that takes a great number of lives off and it is a cause of disability all over the world.

This place presents the greatest incidence and prevalence in the municipality. A descriptive and cross-sectional research was conducted including questioning, physical examination and electrocardiogram to the total of the sample chosen. Data were processed using percentage value and chi square when necessary. In the sample male sex prevailed over the female, and ages older than 56 in both groups. Ischemic heart disease without angina was the prevailing clinical manifestation; meanwhile alterations of the ST-segment were the most common electrocardiographic findings. Smoking, sedentary life and hypertension were the most frequent risk factors in the series, increasing with age and all of them prevailed in the group suffering from ischemic heart disease significantly. A direct relationship between risk factors associated and ischemic heart disease was found.

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

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Con el objeto de buscar recursos alternativos a la langosta de Juan Fernández (Jasus frontalis), que constituye el objetivo tradicional de los pescadores artesanales, se efectuó una campaña de pesca exploratoria con trampas en torno a las islas Robinson Crusoe y Santa Clara (Archipiélago de Juan Fernández, Chile). Entre el 11 de noviembre de 1996 y el 23 de marzo de 1997 se realizaron un total de 71 salidas de pesca, en las que se caló un total de 241 trampas, entre 50 y 1000 m de profundidad. En estas experiencias se utilizaron distintos diseños de trampas: troncocónico, tetragonal y piramidal, de diferente tamaño y ubicación de las entradas, y trampas langosteras con entrada en un extremo y en la parte superior. Las dos últimas, las utilizan los pescadores del archipiélago para la extracción de la langosta. Las trampas troncocónicas, tetragonales y piramidales fueron caladas con entradas circulares o rectangulares. Los únicos crustáceos capturados correspondieron a: langosta de Juan Fernández (Jasus frontalis), centolla de Juan Fernández (Paromola rathbuni), jaiba remadora (Ovalipes trimaculatus) y cangrejo dorado (Chaceon chilensis). La langosta se capturó entre 50 y 100 m; la centolla de Juan Fernández entre 100 y 300 m; el cangrejo dorado entre 200 y 1000 m; mientras que la jaiba remadora se encontró sólo en el veril de 100 m.

The aim of this paper is to present an algorithm to induce the Temporal Fuzzy Chains (TFCs) (J. Moreno,2002b). TFCs are used to model the dynamic systems in a linguistic manner. TFCs make use of two differentconcepts: the traditional method to represent the dynamic systems named state vectors (Ogata, 1998), andthe linguistic variables (Zadeh, 1975) used in fuzzy logic (Tanaka, 1998). Thus, TFCs are qualitative andrepresents the "temporal zones" using linguistic states and linguistic transitions between the linguistic states.

Development of microsatellite markers in species of Erigeron (Asteraceae) endemic to the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Chile.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

UNLABELLED: • PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Microsatellite markers were developed in Erigeron rupicola and tested by amplification in six Erigeron species endemic to the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Chile, to investigate genetic diversity and population structure. • METHODS AND RESULTS: Using 454 pyrosequencing, 24 primer pairs were developed in E. rupicola, 12 of which amplified and presented polymorphism among endemic species of Erigeron in the Archipelago. Two populations from E. rupicola and E. fernandezianus were genotyped, and one to eight alleles per locus per population were detected. The expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.000 to 0.812. • CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate the utility of primers for cross-species populational studies in all endemic species of Erigeron in the Archipelago.

Full Text Available Based on the archival documents generated by John II’s royal entry to Barcelona as the new king of Aragon in 1458, this article explores the process involved in preparing for this ceremonies. It also aims to show that in certain circumstances the dialogue between king and city —the two parties concerned— that led to the final conception of this elaborate ceremony, might almost be considered a kind of negotiation.Basado en documentación archivística generada por la entrada real de Juan II como nuevo monarca de la Corona de Aragón en Barcelona en 1458, este artículo llama la atención sobre el proceso de preparación de este tipo de ceremonias, en el cual intervienen tanto el rey como la ciudad. Al mismo tiempo, se intenta mostrar que el diálogo que se establece entre ambas partes en relación a este hecho puede llegar, en determinadas circunstancias, a asimilarse a una negociación.

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

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

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

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.

Zonas de concentración de ictioplancton en el archipiélago de Juan Fernández, Chile  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se documenta la distribución horizontal del ictioplancton colectado alrededor del archipiélago Juan Fernández, Chile, durante el crucero Cimar 6 - Islas, en octubre de 2000. Se analizó un total de 8.969 huevos y 201 larvas de peces, pertenecientes a 18 familias. Se describen dos zonas de desove alrededor del archipiélago (> 1.000 huevos x 1.000 m-3), en el borde costero al oeste de la isla Alejandro Selkirk y al sur de isla Robinson Crusoe. Nuestros resultados dan cuenta de una utilización diferencial de las aguas adyacentes a las islas por parte de especies de peces insulares y oceánicos. Mientras las larvas de especies insulares, principalmente blénidos y lábridos, presentaron un fuerte gradiente costa-océano, concentrándose en la zona costera, las larvas de peces oceánicos, dominados por Hygophum bruuni, Diogenichthys atlanticus, Lampanyctus pusillus (Myctophidae), y Cyclothone spp. (Gonostomatidae), se distribuyeron homogéneamente alrededor de las islas, sin diferencias significativas en ambas zonas.

Botanical and geological significance of potassium-argon dates from the juan fernandez islands.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

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

Chagas urbano en San Juan. Diagnóstico, revisión y propuesta para un sistema integrado de ataque  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La ciudad de San Juan, Argentina, inserta en un oasis bajo riego, es y fue un área de fuerte prevalencia de la enfermedad de Chagas. Cambios ecológicos y socioambientales del complejo patógeno indican un avance significativo de su vector, Triatoma infestans, desde las zonas rurales, su hábitat tradicional, hacia el centro urbano. En este artículo se discuten los procedimientos empleados para medir este fenómeno, así como las técnicas de representación cartográfica. Tras un análisis geohistórico del problema, se revisa la situación actual a partir del vínculo entre vinchucas y palomas, estas últimas en su condición de reservorios, no facultados para albergar en su torrente sanguíneo el agente Trypanosoma cruzi pero sí para facilitar la movilidad del vector. Se concluye que resulta necesario atacar el problema a través de una estrategia integrada que considere el complejo patógeno con criterio transdisciplinario.REV ARGENT CARDIOL 2008;76:480-487.

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.

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

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

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.

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

Science.gov (United States)

The subduction of the Nazca plate under the South American plate around 31°S 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 décollement 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.

High levels of periodontal disease among the older adult population in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  

UK PubMed Central (United Kingdom)

UNLABELLED: The Puerto Rican Elderly Dental Health Study is the first to evaluate the periodontal status of a representative sample in Puerto Rico. OBJECTIVE: To assess the periodontal status among the elderly population in San Juan. BASIC RESEARCH DESIGN: Three dentists were trained and standardised by the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) reference examiner. They examined elders aged 70-97 in the San Juan area from participants in a representative cohort of the Puerto Rican elderly. Probing depth (PD), attachment loss (AL), and tooth mobility were assessed among the dentate participants on 4 sites on all teeth excluding third molars. We used the CDC-AAP definitions for moderate periodontitis (> or = 2 teeth with AL > or = 4mm at interproximal sites or > or = 2 teeth with PD > or = 5mm at interproximal sites) and severe periodontitis (> or = 2 teeth with AL > or = 6mm at interproximal sites and > or = 1 teeth with PD > or = 5mm at interproximal sites). RESULTS: The participation rate was 47%, 183 individuals, mean age 77.9 (sd 5.9), and 67% were females. Mean number of teeth was 15.8 (sd 6.8), and tooth mobility was present in 18% of participants. Mean PD was 1.5 (sd 0.6) and mean AL was 2.8 mm (sd1.5). The prevalence of moderate and severe periodontitis (CDC-AAP) was 44.5% compared to 20.7% in the NHANES 1999-2004 survey among 75 years and older. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed high levels of severe and moderate periodontal disease among Puerto Rican older adults. Further research is needed to understand the reasons for the high prevalence.

MONITORING ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDES IN SURFACE AND GROUND WATER IN SAN JUAN ARGENTINA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The level of contamination with organochlorine pesticides and the occurrence of their degradation products in the basins of the two main rivers, San Juan and Jáchal, of the Province of San Juan, Argentina, were determined. Surface and ground water samples from both river basins were evaluated by capillary GC and results confirmed with Mass Spectrometry. Chemicals investigated were: alfa-hexachlorocyclohexane (alpha-HCH); beta-hexachlorocyclohexane (beta-HCH); gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane (gamma-HCH); delta-hexachlorocyclohexane (delta-HCH); Heptachlor; Heptachlor epoxide; Aldrin; Dieldrin; Endosulfan I; Endosulfan II; 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2 bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (p,p´ DDT; 1,1-dichloro-2,2 bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethylene (p-'DDE); 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (p,p'-chlorophenyl) ethane (p-p'DDD); 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis-(o,p'-chlorophenyl) ethane (o-p'DDD); Methoxychlor; Endrin. Concentrations found for beta-HCH and Dieldrin were above the maximum permissible values recommended by international organizations (E.C. Council Directive 1980). Mean values found in positive samples were 14.20 mug/L (0.01 - 208.10) and 9.35 mug/L (0.07 - 145.00) for b-HCH and Dieldrin, respectively. For a total number of 314 samples, the percentage of positive samples ranged from 68.6 % for Heptachlor to 16 % for Aldrin. Concentration values and the percentage of positive samples in ground water were significantly lower than those found in surface water. In some surface samples, the values were higher than the allowed maximum (1 to 3 mug/L). Samples taken in different seasons did not show significant differences

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.

Is the Juan Fernandez Ridge (nazca Plate) a Deep-Mantle Hot SPOT Trail?  

Science.gov (United States)

The Juan Fernández Ridge on the oceanic Nazca plate is thought to be a classic hot spot trail because of the apparent westward rejuvenation of the eruptive ages. Geochronological data is still scarce to prove this is the case, and other hypothesis should be taken into account. There are a few constrains, like the ca. 9 Ma Ar-Ar age of the O'Higgins seamount (115 km from the Chile-Perú trench), published K-Ar ages of ca. 3-4 Ma in Robinson Crusoe island (580 km from the trench) and ca. 1 Ma in Alejandro Selkirk (180 km further west). New reconnaissance K-Ar ages in Robinson Crusoe yield ca. 1-3 Ma, which partially overlap with the age of Alejandro Selkirk, breaking the expected age progression given that the Nazca plate moves eastwards at ca. 6-8 cm/yr. New geological mapping also shows a sharp unconformity between the older, strongly altered sequences and more recent, post-erosional volcanic piles, where only the vent facies have disappeared. A fixed deep-mantle plume origin for Pacific hot spots has been widely debated and concurrent phenomena arose as a possible explanation for non-linear age progressions and/or long-lived volcanic activity. In fact, intraplate regional tectonics, plume displacement, and mantle heterogeneities could be the main factor of the ridge architecture or the mask for a first-order linear trend. An ongoing mapping and dating effort is aimed to understand the evolution of the Juan Fernández Ridge, testing the main hypothesis. Fondecyt grant 110966 is acknowledged for financial support.

JUAN SIN MIEDO VA A LA ESCUELA (FEARLESS JOHN GOES TO SCHOOL)  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Resumen:Tomando como base la lectura del cuento “Juan Sin Miedo” realizada por tres sujetos adolescentes, pretendo responder a la pregunta sobre los principales temores que enfrenta la población costarricense adolescente en la actualidad. Las respuestas giran en torno a tres núcleos significativos: el miedo a la exclusión económica y social, materializada en el trato discriminatorio hacia quienes no se adecuan a los criterios impuestos por la sociedad de consumo; el miedo a la escuela, en tanto excluye a quienes no se ajustan a la norma esperada de desempeño académico; y el miedo al otro, en particular a la calle y la escuela como espacios de violencia. Concluyo señalando que, detrás de dichos temores, es posible leer un anhelo de pertenencia; de aprecio sincero y gratuito, en que no medie el rendimiento académico de la persona; así como un anhelo de seguridad en el entorno cercano.Abstract:Based on a reading of the short story Juan Sin Miedo («fearless John») by three adolescents, I intend to provide an answer to the question of the main fears that the Costa Rican adolescent population faces at present. The answers given by these adolescents focus on three significant central elements: fear of economic and social exclusion, expressed through discriminatory treatment towards those who do not subject themselves to the criteria imposed by the consumer society; fear of school in that it excludes those who do not meet the expected academic performance standard; and fear of others, particularly out in the street and in school as realms of violence. I conclude by pointing out that it is possible to visualise, behind such fears, a desire to belong; a longing for both, a sincere and free appreciation where the individual?s academic performance is not what counts, and for safety within the immediate surroundings.

This Uruguayan theologian helped, as few were able to do, to shrink the gap, or "rupture", between Gospel and culture that so preoccupied Paul VI, a rupture that nowadays seems to have deepened once again. Within the framework of the previous General Conferences, Segundo not only urged the libe (more) ration of theology and pastoral practice from aged and counterproductive paradigms, but also helped to express the Gospel within new cultural frameworks-in particular, in paradigms closer to the modern culture that shaped wide sectors (mostly urban) of the region.

MONITORING ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDES IN SURFACE AND GROUND WATER IN SAN JUAN ARGENTINA  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available Abstract in english The level of contamination with organochlorine pesticides and the occurrence of their degradation products in the basins of the two main rivers, San Juan and Jáchal, of the Province of San Juan, Argentina, were determined. Surface and ground water samples from both river basins were evaluated by capillary GC and results confirmed with Mass Spectrometry. Chemicals investigated were: alfa-hexachlorocyclohexane (alpha-HCH); beta-hexachlorocyclohexane (beta-HCH); gamma-hexac (more) hlorocyclohexane (gamma-HCH); delta-hexachlorocyclohexane (delta-HCH); Heptachlor; Heptachlor epoxide; Aldrin; Dieldrin; Endosulfan I; Endosulfan II; 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2 bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (p,p´ DDT; 1,1-dichloro-2,2 bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethylene (p-'DDE); 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (p,p'-chlorophenyl) ethane (p-p'DDD); 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis-(o,p'-chlorophenyl) ethane (o-p'DDD); Methoxychlor; Endrin. Concentrations found for beta-HCH and Dieldrin were above the maximum permissible values recommended by international organizations (E.C. Council Directive 1980). Mean values found in positive samples were 14.20 mug/L (0.01 - 208.10) and 9.35 mug/L (0.07 - 145.00) for b-HCH and Dieldrin, respectively. For a total number of 314 samples, the percentage of positive samples ranged from 68.6 % for Heptachlor to 16 % for Aldrin. Concentration values and the percentage of positive samples in ground water were significantly lower than those found in surface water. In some surface samples, the values were higher than the allowed maximum (1 to 3 mug/L). Samples taken in different seasons did not show significant differences

Juan G[onzález-Blanco]. de Luaces: el traductor desconocido de la posguerra española  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Not much has been written about the most prolific translator of post-war Spain: Juan G[onzález-Blanco]. de Luaces. During the forties he published more than a hundred translations into Spanish. Biographer, novelist and poet, Luaces was one more example of an intellectual whose career was cut short after the victory of the “nationalists” and the establishment of the Franco dictatorship. The severe censorship imposed at all levels forced him to leave aside his job as a writer to devote practically his entire life to translating in order to maintain his family. The main purpose of the following article is to offer a biographical account of a forgotten Spaniard in an attempt to contribute, albeit modestly, to recovering the country’s historical memory.Poco se ha escrito hasta el momento sobre quien podría ser denominado el traductor más prolífico de la posguerra española: Juan G[onzález-Blanco]. de Luaces. En la década de los cuarenta publicó más de cien traducciones al español. Biógrafo, novelista y poeta, Luaces fue uno de tantos intelectuales españoles cuya trayectoria profesional se vio truncada por el estallido de la Guerra Civil española y la victoria del bando “nacional”. La imposición de la dictadura franquista y la subsiguiente censura le obligó a dejar de lado su labor de escritor para dedicarse en cuerpo y alma al oficio de la traducción y poder, así, mantener a su familia. El objeto del siguiente artículo es relatar la vida de este personaje abandonado en el olvido con el afán de contribuir a completar, de forma modesta, la memoria histórica de un período de nuestra historia en el que aún quedan muchas ausencias por suplir.

The nature of the Dakota-Morrison boundary, Southeastern San Juan basin  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

A thin, discontinuous, fluvial locally conglomeratic sandstone at the vase of the Dakota Sandstone in the vicinity of the southeastern San Juan basin, New Mexico has been named the Encinal Canyon Member of the Dakota Sandstone. In the past, the sandstone beds, placed here in the Encinal Canyon, have been included in the Jackpile sandstone, (an economic unit in the Morrison Formation), in the Burro Canyon Formation, or in the Oak Canyon Member of the Dakota Sandstone. Distinction between the Encinal Canyon Member and the Jackpile sandstone, which are separated by an unconformity that probably spans most of the Early Cretaceous, is economically important. The Jackpile is a primary uranium exploration target, whereas the Dakota contains little known uranium. In the past, the sub-Dakota erosional surface in the southeastern San Juan basin generally was thought to be at the base of the marine and paralic Oak Canyon Member of the Dakota Sandstone, which overlies the Encinal Canyon Member. The unconformity is shown here to be at the base of the fluvial rocks of the Encinal Canyon Member. Local relief at the base of the Encinal Canyon indicates that the sub-Dakota erosional surface formed during a time of regional degradation. Easterly flowing streams scoured underlying units and in some places cut completely through the Jackpile sandstone and the Burro Canyon Formation. The Encinal Canyon was deposited in response to the initial transgression of the Dakota sea. As the sea inundated the area, a transgressive erosional surface formed, and the overlying paralic and marine sediments of the Oak Canyon Member were deposited

Obstacles to Implementing Initiatives of Social Responsibility in Small and Medium-Size Firms ?moni? socialin? atsakomyb? ir jos iniciatyv? diegimo kli?tys smulkiojo ir vidutinio verslo ?mon?se  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The purpose of the paper is to analyse the obstacles to implementing social responsibility initiatives in small and medium-size business firms. The implementing fields and the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives in small and medium-size business firms are stressed in the paper. The current situation of CSR in Lithuanian small and medium-size firms is presented. The research data allowed discovering that the main obstacle to implement social responsibility in the small and medium-size firms is the managers’ attitude that social responsibility is a matter of great concern only to large companies. 43% of respondents indicated this obstacle. On the other hand, the research data allowed finding out that in our turbulent environment social responsibility in small and medium-size business firms is not a random phenomenon (71 %), and it is constant concern to managers, which provides for the budget (54 %). The understanding that social responsibility initiatives are only charity or philanthropy is also declined, only 5% of the respondents think so, however, 32 % of firms are supporting charitable initiatives. The most stimulating factors in the implementation of CSR are: staff loyalty and job satisfaction, a better image of the company, long-term competitiveness of the business advantage, the increased consumers requirements. Socially responsible behaviour disincentives are: the lack of human resour-ces (51 %), lack of information about gain from socially responsible activities (50 %), lack of financial resources (28 %). Both theory and practice agree that the implementation of CSR issues is most dependent on the leader’s attitude. The managers of small and medium-size business firms mostly are coordinating the implementation of CSR initiatives (70% of respondents). The results of the empirical research of CSR initiatives implementation in business prac-tices were presented in the possible model of tools which stimulates social responsibility initiatives in small and medium-size business firms. This integrated model includes pu-blic, government and business efforts and interests: 1) improvement of public policy, 2) revitalization of public organizations; 3) encourage and support research, 4) integration of CSR into education, 5) singleness of purpose (depending on companies’ specifics), 6) increase of managers’ consciousness, 7) implementation of a step-by-step approach.Keywords: corporate social responsibility, small and medium-size enterprise, sustainable development.?moni? socialin?s atsakomyb?s (?SA) id?ja, kuria grindžiamas 1999 m. pasaulinis susitarimas, dar tik skinasi keli?
