    @@ Lin: In October 2003, U.S. Goldman Sachs Group. Inc. issued a report entitled "Dreaming with BRICs: The Path to 2050" that evoked huge response in the world. What interest us are not only the BRICs phenomenon, but also China on the list of BRICs. The report made high-sounding prediction of the economic prospects of Brazil, Russia and India. Its predict of China's economic prospect is also interesting. Therefore we attach importance to the report and conclusion thereof. Today we will hold a discussion on the report. Now let us begin our discussion.

  6. Reading embodied consciousness in "Emma".

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harbus, Antonina

    2011-01-01

    The language of Emma (1815) reflects Jane Austen's developing view of embodied consciousness and her particular interest in this novel in the physical manifestations of emotions, such as blushes and nervous responses. The discursive exploration of the inner life in Emma is the product of a cultural context that features emerging brain science and Austen's own conceptualization of the psychophysical nature of emotions. This article analyzes the language of mind and emotion in Emma, to contend that Austen grapples with the implications of the idea of embodied consciousness in a narrative that contrasts mind reading with interpreting the body.

    Robinson, A.C.; Farnsworth, A.V.; Montgomery, S.T.; Peery, J.S; Merewether, K.O.

    1996-12-01

    Sandia National Laboratories has prime responsibility for neutron generator design and manufacturing, and is committed to developing predictive tools for modeling neutron generator performance. An important aspect of understanding component performance is explosively driven ferroelectric power supply modeling. EMMA (ElectroMechanical Modeling in ALEGRA) is a three dimensional compile time version of Sandia`s ALEGRA code. The code is built on top of the general ALEGRA framework for parallel shock-physics computations but also includes additional capability for modeling the electric potential field in dielectrics. The overall package includes shock propagation due to explosive detonation, depoling of ferroelectric ceramics, electric field calculation and coupling with a general lumped element circuit equation system. The AZTEC parallel iterative solver is used to solve for the electric potential. The DASPK differential algebraic equation package is used to solve the circuit equation system. Sample calculations are described.

  8. Stellar feedback during the reionization with EMMA

    Deparis, N.; Aubert, D.; Ocvirk, P.

    2016-12-01

    Stellar feedback during the epoch of reionization is a complex problem that is far to be fully understood. The apparition of first stars in the Universe involves highly nonlinear processes that are studied using numerical simulations. We present here a model of star formation, radiation and supernovae feedback, implemented in a new AMR code with fully coupled radiative-hydrodynamic named EMMA. We present a preliminary study concerning the flow of matter and radiation passing through the virial sphere of each halos. We found a class of low-mass halo (less than 10^9 M_⊙) getting at the same time gas outflow and radiative inflow, suggesting a photo-heating effect.

  10. Nonlinear kinematics for piezoelectricity in ALEGRA-EMMA.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Mitchell, John Anthony; Fuller, Timothy Jesse

    2013-09-01

    This report develops and documents nonlinear kinematic relations needed to implement piezoelectric constitutive models in ALEGRA-EMMA [5], where calculations involving large displacements and rotations are routine. Kinematic relationships are established using Gausss law and Faradays law; this presentation on kinematics goes beyond piezoelectric materials and is applicable to all dielectric materials. The report then turns to practical details of implementing piezoelectric models in an application code where material principal axes are rarely aligned with user defined problem coordinate axes. This portion of the report is somewhat pedagogical but is necessary in order to establish documentation for the piezoelectric implementation in ALEGRA-EMMA. This involves transforming elastic, piezoelectric, and permittivity moduli from material principal axes to problem coordinate axes. The report concludes with an overview of the piezoelectric implementation in ALEGRA-EMMA and small verification examples.

  13. Negative capability and truth in Borges's 'Emma Zunz'.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Priel, Beatriz

    2004-08-01

    The author's main contention is that Borges's short story 'Emma Zunz' not only includes psychoanalytic themes, but also succeeds in effecting, through the fictional text's form, a reading akin to a psychoanalytic approach to the vicissitudes of truth and meaning. This is an approach named by Bion, after Keats, 'negative capability'; for example, an openness, not to the (impossible) knowledge of truth, but to its effects. The effect of reading Borges's story is analyzed as conveyed through three main narrative strategies: (a) the minute description of Emma's falsities and her fabrication of lies, as processes through which the awareness of internal reality is thoroughly transformed; (b) the subversion of the detective narrative genre making obsolete its conventions; (c) the introduction of a narrator who paradoxically knows and doesn't know crucial aspects of Emma's internal and external reality, who is both close to and distant from the reader, and who never decides among the diverse alternatives he proposes. These narrative strategies transform the story into a perplexing playground for the reader's expectations. Borges's peculiar way of narrating the story of 'Emma Zunz' powerfully appeals to the reader's capability not to search for the truth, but to allow herself to be affected by it; not to decipher, but to follow the patient's discourse or the story in the written text.

  16. Espectroscopia de candidatos a remanescentes de aglomerados abertos

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pavani, D. B.; Bica, E.; Ahumada, A. V.; Clariá, J. J.

    2003-08-01

    A pesquisa sobre remanescentes de aglomerados abertos tem despertado grande interesse. Seguindo esta tendência encontramos estudos teóricos e observacionais. Os primeiros baseiam-se em simulações numéricas buscando determinar fração de binárias e distâncias galatocêntricas, tempo de vida e conteúdo estelar. Estes estão relacionados à função inicial de massa e densidade de estrelas, ou seja, se ricos ou pobremente povoados, compactos ou esparsos. No caso observacional procuram-se identificar os remanescentes considerando-se que trazem estas assinaturas de seus percursores. No presente estudo empregamos espectroscopia para analisar oito concentrações pobremente povoadas, previamente classificadas como aglomerados abertos, sendo sete compactas e uma esparsa. As observações foram obtidas através do telescópio de 2,15 m do CASLEO em San Juan, Argentina, em turnos entre 2001 e 2003. Utilizamos uma câmara CCD contendo um chip Tektronics de 1024X1024 pixeis aliado a um espectrógrafo REOSC. O domínio espectral vai de 3700 a 7000 Å. As reduções foram realizadas no Observatório Astronômico de Córdoba (Argentina) usando pacotes IRAF padrões. Determinamos idades, avermelhamentos e tipos espectrais através de comparações com biblioteca de estrelas e de aglomerados. Em alguns casos nossos espectros estavam dominados por estrelas individuais às quais determinamos seus tipos espectrais. Aos oito objetos adicionamos mais cinco da literatura recente analisados via espectro ou diagrama cor-magnitude. O histograma resultante contém idades típicas entre 0.5 e 3 Ganos. Considerando que predominantemente estes objetos encontram-se na vizinhança solar e, portanto, não cruzaram muitas vezes o plano Galático esperamos que a diferença no tempo necessário para dissolução destes prováveis remanescentes seja em função de diferentes massas iniciais.

    Arnsten, Amy F T

    2013-10-01

    Patricia S. Goldman-Rakic (1937-2003) transformed the study of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and the neural basis of mental representation, the basic building block of abstract thought. Her pioneering research first identified the dorsolateral PFC (dlPFC) region essential for spatial working memory, and the extensive circuits of spatial cognition. She discovered the cellular basis of working memory, illuminating the dlPFC microcircuitry underlying spatially tuned, persistent firing, whereby precise information can be held "in mind": persistent firing arises from recurrent excitation within glutamatergic pyramidal cell circuits in deep layer III, while tuning arises from GABAergic lateral inhibition. She was the first to discover that dopamine is essential for dlPFC function, particularly through D1 receptor actions. She applied a host of technical approaches, providing a new paradigm for scientific inquiry. Goldman-Rakic's work has allowed the perplexing complexities of mental illness to begun to be understood at the cellular level, including atrophy of the dlPFC microcircuits subserving mental representation. She correctly predicted that impairments in dlPFC working memory activity would contribute to thought disorder, a cardinal symptom of schizophrenia. Ten years following her death, we look back to see how she inspired an entire field, fundamentally changing our view of cognition and cognitive disorders.

  20. EMMA: an AMR cosmological simulation code with radiative transfer

    CERN Document Server

    Aubert, Dominique; Ocvirk, Pierre

    2015-01-01

    EMMA is a cosmological simulation code aimed at investigating the reionization epoch. It handles simultaneously collisionless and gas dynamics, as well as radiative transfer physics using a moment-based description with the M1 approximation. Field quantities are stored and computed on an adaptive 3D mesh and the spatial resolution can be dynamically modified based on physically-motivated criteria. Physical processes can be coupled at all spatial and temporal scales. We also introduce a new and optional approximation to handle radiation : the light is transported at the resolution of the non-refined grid and only once the dynamics have been fully updated, whereas thermo-chemical processes are still tracked on the refined elements. Such an approximation reduces the overheads induced by the treatment of radiation physics. A suite of standard tests are presented and passed by EMMA, providing a validation for its future use in studies of the reionization epoch. The code is parallel and is able to use graphics proc...

    Full Text Available Emma Tettoni (Novara, 1859 – Bergamo, 1891 was a teacher in secondary schools for women, headmistress of the Scuola normale femminile in Rovigo (Italy, student of Giosuè Carducci at Bologna University (1879-1881 and classmate of Giovanni Pascoli and Giulia Cavallari Cantalamessa. She devoted her life to teaching and writing, considering them prerequisites for female emancipation. Moving from her correspondence with the great Italian poet - teacher, but also from her female friendship network, it is possible to trace the phases of her arduous life as social and professional engaged young woman. Because of the novelty of her ideas, expressed in education lectures (on love, women’s work, women scientists and the faults of Italian mothers, she suffered the painful ostracism of conservative factions. In 1890 she joined the organization of VI Centenary of Beatrice Portinari, in Florence.

  3. Emma Kohman and the early history of nutritional edema.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bing, F C

    1983-06-01

    Nutritional edema is a generalized edematous condition that afflicted whole populations of central European countries during World War 1--and other areas since that time--with a mortality rate of about 50%. An analogous condition in white rats was produced by Emma Kohman as a graduate student in Chicago (1916 to 1919). She fed the rats a diet similar to that consumed by human subjects but prevented or cured nutritional edema in the animals by feeding them good quality protein in suitable amounts. Her work, verified by others, was of immense practical significance and helped establish the value of animal experiments in the study of human diseases. Ms. Kohman gave up a scientific career to be a homemaker when she married in 1919.

    Full Text Available Nesta tese se discute o processo formal de comunicação científica por meio de artigos publicados em revistas científicas nacionais e internacionais e a acessibilidade dessas informações em canais de acesso aberto. Descrevem-se os modelos de negócios das editoras científicas e elabora-se uma proposta de sistema de gestão da produção científica financiada pelo Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq em repositório digital de acesso aberto. A pesquisa envolveu várias fontes de informação incluindo um levantamento (survey na comunidade de pesquisadores-bolsistas de produtividade em pesquisa do CNPq, visando conhecer: as razões para publicar artigo científico; o nível de conscientização sobre acesso aberto à informação cientifica; e, a motivação para adotar os canais de acesso aberto para disseminação da produção científica. O trabalho é de natureza quali-quantitativa tendo como referência as técnicas do Discurso do Sujeito Coletivo (DSC na análise qualitativa dos dados. Os resultados revelaram que embora a maioria (66% dos pesquisadores do CNPq tenha conhecimento dos movimentos do acesso aberto à informação científica, desconhecem seus desdobramentos e avanços a ele associados. Sugere-se que esse desconhecimento deve-se à falta de políticas de informação em ciência e tecnologia no Brasil e de ações proativas das instituições de ensino e pesquisa e de agências de fomento à pesquisa para despertar e encorajar seus pesquisadores para o novo paradigma de comunicação universal da informação científica em ambientes digitais de acesso aberto na Internet.

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available A publicação em revistas de acesso aberto cresceu expressivamente nos últimos anos. As publicações de acesso fechado, por sua vez, têm custo de acesso cada vez mais elevado, por se beneficiarem de um modelo econômico peculiar: o trabalho relevante e os insumos essenciais são entregues gratuitamente a fornecedores que contam com um mercado cativo, praticamente sem concorrência. O mercado editorial é altamente oligopolizado, característico de indústrias que trabalham com o regime de copyright. Isso contribui para a elevação dos preços de seus produtos. Políticas mandatórias de acesso aberto, como a determinada pela agência National Institutes of Health, constituem-se em ameaça a esse modelo de negócios e são enfrentadas pela indústria em várias frentes, incluindo a passagem de legislação para sabotar tais iniciativas. O objetivo deste comentário foi apresentar alguns aspectos principais desse enfrentamento e sugerir possíveis estratégias de incremento da publicação de acesso aberto em nosso meio.

  10. Emma Zunz by Jorge Luis Borges: the Concept of Justice

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Emma Zunz, by Jorge Luis Borges, is the story of a girl who decides to kill her boss in order to avenge her father’s death, believing that her father’s version of an event that occurred years before was true. Thus, she devises a secret plan, which includes losing her virginity to a complete stranger, shortly before committing the crime, so she could argue that her boss had raped her and that she killed him in self-defense. Firstly, the text shows the contrast between formal justice and taking justice into own hands. Secondly, the question of self-inflicted punishment, which in the story takes place before the perpetration of the crime. Finally, the issue whether truth is the version that can be inferred from the evidence presented in a trial, or the one which is kept to themselves by those involved in a crime. Emma Zunz, de Jorge Luis Borges, es la historia de una chica que decide matar a su jefe para vengar la muerte de su padre, creyendo que la versión de su padre de un hecho que ocurrió años atrás era cierta. De este modo, diseña un plan secreto, que incluye la pérdida de su virginidad con un desconocido, poco antes de cometer el crimen, para poder argumentar que su jefe la había violado y que ella lo mató en defensa propia. En primer lugar, el texto muestra el contraste entre la justicia formal y la justicia por cuenta propia. En segundo lugar, la cuestión de la pena infligida a uno mismo, lo que en la historia se produce antes de la comisión del delito. Por último, la cuestión de si la verdad es la versión que se puede inferir de las pruebas presentadas en un juicio, o la que se guardan para sí mismas las personas involucradas en un crimen.

    Full Text Available Measuring of the central corneal thickness through ultrasonic pachymetry, in several opportunities can contribute to diagnose glaucoma. The main objective of this research was to determine, the central corneal thickness in suspecting patients of having glaucoma.to check if it makes influence while taking the intraocular pressure with the Tonometer of Goldman, 328 eyes were studied out of the 164 patients who attended the glaucoma provincial appointment as suspecting of suffering from this pathology, who were included according to the study in the classification, of elaborated suspected in relation with this aspect. Taking into account:ocular hypertension without papillary alteration,papillary alteration without ocular hypertension,papillary alteration with ocular hypertension.It was carried out a measuring of the intraocular pressure and ultrasonic pachymetry to all eyes to know the central corneal thickness.Several variables were studied like, age, skin color, which were no significant. The thick cornea was predominant in the masculine sex and the thin ones in the femenine. Related to refractive deffects were predominant the thick cornea in myopic patients and in those suffering from hypermetropic. There was no relation among general illness associated and the central corneal thickness. It was predominant the eyes with normal central corneal thickness followed by those having thick cornea.The technological development plays an important role in the acute and precise diagnose of glaucoma, of all those patients sent to the provincial glaucoma appointment, because of being suspected less than 1/4 needed other studies after taking ultrasonic pachymetry.

  12. Withstanding trauma: the significance of Emma Eckstein's circumcision to Freud's Irma dream.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bonomi, Carlo

    2013-07-01

    The author considers the medical rationale for Wilhelm Fliess's operation on Emma Eckstein's nose in February 1895 and interprets the possible role that this played in Freud's dream of Irma's injection five months later. The author's main argument is that Emma likely endured female castration as a child and that she therefore experienced the surgery to her nose in 1895 as a retraumatization of her childhood trauma. The author further argues that Freud's unconscious identification with Emma, which broke through in his dream of Irma's injection with resistances and apotropaic defenses, served to accentuate his own "masculine protest". The understanding brought to light by the present interpretation of Freud's Irma dream, when coupled with our previous knowledge of Freud, allows us to better grasp the unconscious logic and origins of psychoanalysis itself.(1.) © 2013 The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Inc.

  13. Creativity and oedipal fantasy in Austen's Emma: 'An ingenious and animating suspicion'.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fitzpatrick Hanly, Margaret Ann

    2003-08-01

    Austen's Emma is one of the great novels of the Western tradition. In this paper the author explores the meaning of Emma's 'ingenious and animating suspicion' that Jane Fairfax seduced her best friend's husband, Mr Dixon. The interpretation that a psychoanalytic understanding makes possible shows how this suspicion represents an oedipal fantasy projected on to Miss Fairfax. Further exploration demonstrates how the fantasy is linked both to Emma's systematic unkindness to Jane Fairfax and to Emma's famous insult to Jane's aunt, Miss Bates. Emma's suspicion projects an oedipal fantasy with its incestuous impulses on to her rival and satisfies an envious aggression at the same time. The author's purpose in this paper is to bring to light through psychoanalytic understanding Austen's dramatisation of the complexity and creativity of the oedipal situation. In addition to the regression in oedipal fantasy, the primary process also functions with a progressive quality that expands and enriches the ego, a double movement described in Keats's 'negative capability', which has been elaborated by Bion. The primal-scene fantasies are often brought alive in the analytic transference. These situations and painful emotions are dramatically portrayed through Austen's genius as vehicles for change. A sudden integration follows a phase of disorganization: 'It darted through her with the speed of an arrow. Mr Knightley must marry no-one but herself'. Emma, who is Austen's 'imaginist', moves from the projected fantasy of the sad love triangle through envy aggression and the narcissistic blows of self-doubt and loss of love to moments of illumination and connection.

    Efficient massive mapping algorithm (EMMA), an algorithm on efficiently mapping massive cDNAs onto genomic sequences, has recently been developed. The process of mapping massive cDNAs onto genomic sequences has been improved using more approximate mapping filtering based on an enhanced suffix array coupled with a pruned fast hash table, algorithms of block alignment extensions, and k-longest paths. When compared with the classical BLAT software in this field, the computing of EMMA ranges from two to forty-one times faster under similar prediction precisions.

    2009-03-01

    The long-term marital dance of Emma and Charles Darwin was set to the routine beat of an almost daily piano recital. Emma was a proficient pianist, and so a quality instrument was a welcome and appropriate house-warming present for their first marital home in London. That same piano accompanied the Darwins on their move to Downe before being upgraded for a newer model, which is still there, whilst another, cheaper piano may have played in Charles Darwin's work, particularly on earthworms. Whilst he lamented his own lack of musicality, Darwin revelled in his wife's prowess, a capacity that he recognised could be inherited, not least through observation of his own children. The evolution of musicality, he reasoned, was rooted in sexual attraction as a form of communication that preceded language.

  11. Determining K+ channel activation curves from K+ channel currents often requires the Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz equation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    john r Clay

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available Potassium ion current in nerve membrane, IK, has traditionally been described by IK = gK(V-EK, where gK is the K ion conductance, V is membrane potential, and EK is the K+ Nernst potential. This description has been unchallenged by most investigators in neuroscience since its introduction almost sixty years ago. The problem with the IK ~ (V-EK proportionality is that it is inconsistent with the unequal distribution of K ions in the intra- and extracellular bathing media. Under physiological conditions the intracellular K+ concentraion is significantly higher than the extracellular concentration. Consequently, the slope conductance at potentials positive to EK cannot be the same as that for potentials negative to EK, as the linear proportionality requires. Instead IK has a non-linear dependence on (V-EK which is well described by the Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz equation. The implications of this result for K+ channel gating and membrane excitability are reviewed in this report.

    The heroine Emma from Gustave Flaubert's novel has been a prolonged topic of discussion. From the view of Sartre's concept of existence, self-existence must pay attention to the relationship between oneself and the others. The relationship between Emma and her self can be understood from three aspects, which includes her imaginary, subjective and objective self, but they only exist in two dimensions: the past and the present. Emma highly distinguishes from the others when treating the relationship between herself and others, to pursue the satisfaction of her imaginary sells objective desires in the space-time beyond her self existence, the multiple splits of her self existence and the differences of actual time and space. Eventually she confesses the return of her self awareness existence through ending her physical life.%福楼拜笔下的女主人公爱玛一直是人们经久不息的讨论话题。从萨特的存在观来看,自我的存在要关注与自我本身和与他人的关系。爱玛与自我的关系包含想象的自我,自以为的自我和客观实际中的自我三个层面,却只存在于过去和现在两个时间维度。爱玛高居于他人之外来对待与他人的关系,在超越自我实存的时空去追求“想象的自我”的客体欲望满足,自我存在的多层分裂和时空差异的实存,最终以消灭自己的肉体生命来承认自我意识存在的回归。

    Full Text Available An experiment of micropropagation of the orchid Dendrobium “Emma Pink” on the media Vacin and Went using tissue culture technique has been done. The explant was obtained from the young stem of Dendrobium “Emma Pink”. Induction stage was started by culturing the first, second, third, fourth axilar buds counted from the base of the stem and apical bud. The most potential bud to be used as a source for an explant was identified from the serial culturing of explant on the liquid media with various combinations of growth regulator kinetin and IAA. The media were placed on a shaker at 90 rpm. The second and the third axilar buds were the most potential sources of explant at 10-5 M kinetin and 5.10-7 M IAA, with the degree of success for the formation of protocorm like bodies (protocorm- like bodies were 56.25% and 43.75% respectively. The formation and multiplication of buds were obtained from protocorm-like bodies which were cultured in the solid media in the addition of 10-4 M kinetin and 5.10-6M IAA. The multiplication rate of the buds has continuously increased during the subcultures with an average multiplication rate of 3.25 buds/4 weeks, 4.59 buds/4 weeks, 6.32 buds/4 weeks and 8.80 buds/4 weeks respectively. The roots were formed when the buds were cultured in the solid media by adding 5.10-6 M kinetin and M IAA. The degree of acclimatization success of Dendrobium “Emma Pink” was 93.33% for the rooted bud and 53.33% for the unrooted bud.

    2011-01-01

    Fecundity in some insects is affected by mating status. The effect of mating status on the fecundity and total egg production of Teleogryllus emma (Ohmachi et Mat-sumura) (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) was examined in this study. The results showed that the pre-oviposition period was shorter for amphigonic females than that for virgin females. However, no significant difference in pre-oviposition was found between amphigonic females and those that had mated with a male with either the phallodeum or testes extirpated. There is no difference in adult longevity between the above four groups. The fecundity and total egg production were much higher in amphigonic females than in those controlled under the three non-amphigonic treatments. The females of T. emma that mated with the testes-extirpated males produced more eggs (up to two-fold more) than both the virgin females and those that mated with the phallodeum-extirpated males, but there was no difference between them. The fecundity-enhancing substances transferred from male to female can stimulate the female to produce more eggs, but this stimulation has to occur in collaboration with sperm.

    Dr Jean Plouët (Centre de Recherche Cardiovasculaire, INSERM U 689/Institut des Vaisseaux et du Sang) was interviewed by Emma Quigley (Commissioning Editor, Expert Opinion) on 20th June 2006. Born in Brittany, France, Dr Jean Plouët received his MD degree from Nantes University in 1977 and his PhD in Molecular Biology from Paris VII University in 1981. His first research topic, under the supervision of Dr Courtois and Dr Barritault was devoted to the purification and the description of the mechanisms of action of eye-derived growth factor, which turned out to be the retinal fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2. He was appointed as Charge de Recherche by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in 1981. He later conducted his research on the effect of FGF-2 on light transduction and demonstrated the role of opsin phosphorylation on FGF-2 release from retinal discs in Dr Pouliquen's laboratory. From 1987 to 1989, Dr Plouët worked in the Cancer Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco, in Dr Gospodarowicz's laboratory where he co-discovered vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) with Dr Napoleone Ferrara. He established his own group in Toulouse where he worked on the mechanisms of action of VEGF and vascular targeting by anti-idiotypoc antibodies against VEGF and FGF. In 2005, Dr Plouët moved to Paris where he now works mainly on endogenous inhibitors of angiogenesis acting downstream of VEGF.

    Full Text Available This article considers location filming for heritage dramas in rural England, focusing on the experiences of the communities that “host” television crews during production. The article specifically examines the filming of the 2009 BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, for which the historic Kent village, Chilham, doubled as the fictional Highbury. In doing so, it interrogates two central aspects. First, it illuminates some of the practical issues and economic and cultural impact of location filming for heritage dramas within rural areas. Second, it reflects upon how a community experiences and responds to its status as the host of such a series, considering the impact this has upon questions of identity and heritage. The article draws upon original empirical research, oral history interviews and community archive building conducted within the Chilham community and with Kent Film Office. It explores the memories and experiences of the local population involved in the television location filming process, as both spectators and participants. We thus consider the significance of location from the point of view of those who solicit, resist, profit from, and are caused problems by the temporary transformation of their local space into a television drama shooting space, forging new connections between production practices, location shooting and heritage series and national television/cinema.

    Full Text Available A determinação dos limites da cava final de qualquer projeto de mineração é um dos maiores desafios de um projeto de mineração. Tais limites precisam ser definidos já no início dos trabalhos de planejamento de lavra e devem ser reconsiderados, novamente e rotineiramente, durante toda a vida útil da mina. Um dos propósitos do plano de exaustão de minas a céu aberto é determinar a cava final ótima, baseando-se em um modelo econômico sujeito a restrições técnicas e visando à maximização do valor atual líquido do projeto. O primeiro algoritmo específico relacionado ao tema foi publicado por Lerchs e Grossmann (1965. O algoritmo de Lerchs e Grossmann tem sido aceito como padrão de teste em comparação com outros algoritmos equivalentes, que têm sido propostos, porque ele resolve o problema correspondente, segundo a teoria dos grafos, ao corte mínimo e fluxo máximo. Outros algoritmos de otimização de cavas finais de minas a céu aberto também são apresentados nesse trabalho. Além disto, um programa acadêmico para a otimização de cavas foi desenvolvido pelos autores sendo que os fundamentos deste são apresentados no presente artigo.The determination of the final pit limits of any mining project is one of the most important challenges in a mining project. Such limits need to be defined at the beginning of the mine planning and should be reconsidered, again and routinely, during all the useful life of a mine.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Uma solução analítica foi desenvolvida, para avaliar sulcos abertos e em declive, com base na teoria de Balanço de Volume de Walker e Skogerboe (1987. Essa metodologia é capaz de obter, matematicamente, a performance de um sistema, dispensando a construção de gráficos que definem os parâmetros de avaliação. A solução matemática é baseada no ajuste de equações ao modelo potencial, no cálculo das áreas sob as curvas definidas no ajuste e na intercessão de curvas, obtendo-se, assim, a performance de sistemas de irrigação por sulcos abertos e em declive. Para validação da metodologia, foi realizado um experimento de campo, na Fazenda Experimental da Universidade Federal do Ceará, situada no município de Pentecoste, pertencente ao Centro de Ciências Agrárias. Os dados de campo foram submetidos à análise pelas duas metodologias. Os resultados mostraram que a metodologia analítica pode ser usada para avaliar a irrigação por sulcos abertos e em declive.

    A patient's healthcare team is often missing a complete overview on the prescribed and dispensed medication. This is due to an inconsistent information flow between the different actors of the healthcare system. Often, only the patient himself knows exactly which drugs he is actually taking. Our objective is to exploit different eHealth technologies available or planned in Switzerland to improve the information flow of the medication data among the stakeholder and to support the patient in managing his medication. This work is embedded in the "Hospital of the Future Live" project, involving 16 companies and 6 hospitals in order to develop IT solutions for future optimized health care processes. A comprehensive set of requirements was collected from the different actors and project partners. Further, specifications of the available or planned eHealth infrastructure were reviewed to integrate relevant technologies into a coherent concept. We developed a concept that combines the medication list and an eHealth platform. The resulting electronic medication management assistant (eMMA) designed for the patient provides the current medication plan at any time and supports by providing relevant information through a conversational user interface. In Switzerland, we still need a bridging technology to combine the medication information from the electronic patient record with the medication plan's associated QR-Code. The developed app is intended to provide such bridge and demonstrates the usefulness of the eMediplan. It enables the patient to have all data regarding his medication on his personal mobile phone and he can - if necessary - provide the current medication to the health professional.

    The information centre of the Emma Children's Hospital AMC (EKZ AMC) is a specialised information centre where paediatric patients and persons involved with the patient can ask questions about all aspects of disease and its social implications. The aim of the study was to evaluate the question-answer service of this information centre in order to determine the role of a specialised information centre in an academic children's hospital, identify the appropriate resources for the service and potential positive effects. For this purpose, a case management system was developed in MS ACCESS. The characteristics of the requester and the question, the time it took to answer questions, the information sources used and the extent to which we were able to answer the questions were registered. The costs of the service were determined. We analysed all questions that were asked in the year 2007. Fourteen hundred thirty-four questions were asked. Most questions were asked by parents (23.3%), healthcare workers (other than nurses; 16.5%) and nurses (15.3%). The scope of the most frequently asked questions include disease (20.2%) and treatment (13.0%). Information on paper was the main information source used. Most questions could be solved within 15 min. Twelve percent to 28% of total working hours are used for the question-answer service. Total costs including staff salary are rather large. In conclusions, taking over the task of providing additional medical information and by providing readily available, good quality information that healthcare professionals can use to inform their patients will lead to less time investment of these more expensive staff members. A specialised information service can anticipate on the information need of parents and persons involved with the paediatric patient. It improves information by providing with relatively simple resources that has the potential to improve patient and parent satisfaction, coping and medical results. A specialised

    Full Text Available The Astrid-2 mission has dual primary objectives. First, it is an orbiting instrument platform for studying auroral electrodynamics. Second, it is a technology demonstration of the feasibility of using micro-satellites for innovative space plasma physics research. The EMMA instrument, which we discuss in the present paper, is designed to provide simultaneous sampling of two electric and three magnetic field components up to about 1kHz. The spin plane components of the electric field are measured by two pairs of opposing probes extended by wire booms with a separation distance of 6.7m. The probes have titanium nitride (TiN surfaces, which has proved to be a material with excellent properties for providing good electrical contact between probe and plasma. The wire booms are of a new design in which the booms in the stowed position are wound around the exterior of the spacecraft body. The boom system was flown for the first time on this mission and worked flawlessly. The magnetic field is measured by a tri-axial fluxgate sensor located at the tip of a rigid, hinged boom extended along the spacecraft spin axis and facing away from the Sun. The new advanced-design fluxgate magnetometer uses digital signal processors for detection and feedback, thereby reducing the analogue circuitry to a minimum. The instrument characteristics as well as a brief review of the science accomplished and planned are presented.

    Full Text Available RESUMO O reduzido acesso ao capital de terceiros, especialmente os de mais longo prazo, é um dos principais problemas do ambiente corporativo brasileiro. Conflitos de agência e existência de informação assimétrica nas transações efetivadas no mercado financeiro resultam no racionamento do crédito e no encarecimento do custo de capital. A adoção de melhores práticas de governança corporativa pelas empresas, ao implicar redução do custo de capital, amplia a captação de recursos para o investimento, mitigando o problema do financiamento empresarial. O objetivo deste estudo é avaliar a relação entre a adoção de melhores práticas de governança corporativa e o custo do capital de terceiros das empresas brasileiras não financeiras de capital aberto no período 2010-2014. De forma a atingir tal objetivo, foi utilizado um modelo de dados de painel com 230 companhias, sendo a estimação realizada pelo Método dos Momentos Generalizado Sistêmico (GMM-Sis. Os resultados apontaram que a adoção de melhores níveis de governança corporativa reduziu o custo do capital de terceiros das companhias presentes na amostra. Além disso, verificou-se que as variáveis custo de capital de terceiros do ano anterior, lucratividade e nível de emissão de ações preferenciais exerceram uma influência estatisticamente significativa sobre o custo contemporâneo da dívida.

    Full Text Available RESUMO Objetivo: Determinar a estratégia mais custo-efetiva para o tratamento do glaucoma primário de ângulo aberto em fase inicial, comparando-se as seguintes alternativas: observação, tratamento clínico ou tratamento com laser. Métodos: Por meio de um modelo de Markov, sob a perspectiva do Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS e um horizonte da expectativa de vida média da população brasileira. Comparou-se a razão de custo-utilidade incremental (ICUR entre 3 alternativas de tratamento, assim como seus custos e o ganho em qualidade de vida, medido em QALY (Quality-adjusted life years. Resultados: A ICUR do tratamento inicial com laser e do tratamento inicial com colírios, em relação a não tratar foi de R$ 2.811,39/QALY e R$ 3.450,47/QALY, respectivamente. Ambas as estratégias foram custo-efetivas, com uma discreta vantagem para o tratamento a laser. Esta diferença diminui ainda mais quando se aumenta a idade de entrada no modelo. As duas alternativas propiciaram ganhos significativos de qualidade de vida (em torno de 2,5 QALYs para o tratamento com laser e de 5,0 QALYs para o tratamento com colírios. Conclusão: Tanto o tratamento primário com trabeculoplastia a laser quanto com medicações foram custo-efetivos e proporcionaram ganhos reais de qualidade de vida quando comparados com o não tratamento do GPAA.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: O glaucoma primário de ângulo aberto é uma doença degenerativa do nervo óptico que se encontra entre as principais causas de cegueira no mundo. Aspectos familiares já foram implicados como fatores importantes e comprovados em inúmeros estudos. Nesse artigo, apresentamos uma revisão sistemática dos trabalhos sobre glaucoma primário de ângulo aberto e DNA mitocondrial e fazemos uma análise estatística à luz dos conceitos da cienciometria. MÉTODOS: A pesquisa bibliográfica de trabalhos envolvendo DNA mitocondrial e glaucoma primário de ângulo aberto foi realizada por meio da base de dados do sítio Scopus. Foi feito o levantamento a partir das palavras-chaves "Mitochondrial DNA" e "Glaucoma" em todos os campos para publicações no período compreendido de 1992 até agosto de 2012. Finalmente, foi realizada a estatística e cienciometria com os principais dados: autores que publicaram sobre o assunto DNA mitocondrial e glaucoma; revistas e outras publicações que tiveram trabalhos relacionados com o tema; Centros de Pesquisa e Universidades que mais publicaram e países onde foram realizados os estudos sobre DNA mitocondrial e glaucoma. RESULTADOS: Identificamos que esses estudos têm aumentado sobremaneira ao longo dos últimos anos, mas ainda se encontram confinados, na maior parte, a alguns centros de pesquisa e concentrados em seletos grupos de autores na área da oftalmologia em países desenvolvidos. No Brasil, ainda não temos pesquisas publicadas sobre o assunto até o momento. CONCLUSÃO: Esses estudos são de fundamental importância para a elucidação das causas genéticas do glaucoma e para o desenvolvimento de novas terapias que não visem tão somente a diminuição da pressão intraocular.

  5. Earthquake Mechanisms of the Mediterranean Area (EMMA) version 3: an improved tool for characterizing the tectonic deformation styles in the Mediterranean.

    2009-04-01

    EMMA (Earthquake Mechanisms of the Mediterranean Area) database contains available literature data with the goal of making them more usable and available. EMMA is continuously improving by the addition of further focal mechanisms found in literature. At the present time, EMMA pre-release 3 includes more than 12700 focal solutions, about twice of previous official release 2.2 (Vannucci and Gasperini, 2004). They cover a time window from 1905 to 2006. In the new release, many added solutions are in areas not much covered or completely uncovered in the previous one (e.g. Bulgaria, Germany, Anatolia). As in the previous versions (Vannucci and Gasperini, 2003 and 2004), we have uniformed the different formats and notations of the data available from different sources and we have tried to solve misprints, inaccuracies and inconsistencies that might make the data unusable for other investigations. By an automatic procedure based on several criteria, we have chosen the "most representative" (best) solution when more than one is available for the same earthquake. Thanks to this, we have obtained about 6000 best solutions. The end user can use the best solution obtained with our procedure or he can change criteria. The database allows to make selections and to export data files suitable to be handled by graphic software and user generated scripts. In the new version, still MS-ACCESS based, we have added geographic information to the display of the focal solution, as well as we have integrated the hypocentral and magnitude data found on the original papers with those reported by regional and local catalogs and bulletins. In order to make EMMA more accessible, a web version is currently in progress. Through an internet connection it will be possible data selection and export, without installation and configuration problems found in the past. EMMA was already used in the past and will be (hopefully) useful in the future to better characterize the tectonic deformation styles (e

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available This article carries out a comparative analysis of the characters of Emma Bovary and Ana Ozores considering the assumptions of thematic criticism. The way that certain cosmological and material elements are regarded as real, brings about a set of recurrent images that acquire symbolical dimension. These images, which are the visible representation of the psycho-sensory level of the text, may relate, therefore, to the specific individual dimension of the way of perceiving and constructing a daydream vision of the real world in the act of writing. However, certain parallelisms can be established in the writings of both, Flaubert and Clarín.

    RESUMO: O teor de 5-HT cerebral depende da disponibilidade do Try para o cérebro, expressa pela relação TRY/LANAA da dieta. Como a 5-HT está envolvida em vários comportamentos emocionais, procurou-se verificar o efeito de rações com diferentes valores daquela relação na atividade exploratória de ratos em campo aberto. Vários grupos de 6 ratos machos, adultos, alimentados com rações formuladas com Isolado Protéico de milho (IPM – baixa relação TRY/LNAA - , farinha desengordurada de soja – alta relação TRY/LNAA – e IPM suplementado com Try foram observados em campo aberto entre 8º/13º e 25º/30º dias de vigência das respectivas dietas. O grupo mantido com o IPM apresentou médias de locomoção e de exploração vertical (“levantar-se” significativamente maiores (α = 0.05 que os demais no primeiro período de observações. Tais diferenças não foram verificadas na segunda fase de observações, quando os grupos mantidos com o IPM e IPM + Try encontravam-se sob forte depleção protéica. Os resultados sugerem que a menor relação TRY/LNAA da dieta e, provavelmente da 5-HT cerebral, aumenta a atividade exploratória, o que pode significar menor nível de emocionalidade. PALAVRAS – CHAVE: Triptofano; serotonina; atividade exploratória.

Trata-se de um estudo descritivo exploratório, onde foi utilizado um questionário, aplicado a onze enfermeiros dos serviços em questão, na cidade de Ribeirão Preto – São Paulo - Brasil. Os resultados mostraram que a maioria está na faixa etária entre 31 e 40 anos e possuem curso de especialização. Três cursaram mestrado e um cursou doutorado. Como papéis, destacaram os específicos do enfermeiro e os administrativos. Como conflitos, apontaram as condições de trabalho, a baixa remuneração, o não reconhecimento da sua liderança e a falta de recursos. O reconhecimento profissional e a reabilitação do portador de transtorno mental constituíram-se nas gratificações relatadas, permitindo concluir que esses enfermeiros identificam com propriedade o seu papel, apontam dificuldade para desempenhar parte deles, principalmente, frente às situações que enfrentam, identificam os seus conflitos e mostraram-se gratificados pelo reconhecimento da contribuição do seu trabalho na reabilitação do portador de transtorno mental, preservando, assim, certo idealismo relativo ao exercício de sua profissão.

    Full Text Available Este artigo busca analisar a capacidade de explicação dos investimentos das empresas brasileiras de capital aberto através do Modelo do Acelerador modificado. A alteração feita no modelo foi a substituição dos gastos de consumo agregado, ou do estoque de capital do modelo básico, pelo valor das vendas das empresas. Utilizou-se o método dos mínimos quadrados ordinários em corte transversal para estimar os parâmetros do modelo. A aplicação, para a amostra selecionada, da análise referida permitiu verificar uma forte explicação dos gastos de investimentos com o nível de vendas. Sendo assim, é possível, a partir desses resultados, estimar as alterações do investimento de um ano para o outro. Esse fato é extremamente relevante devido à simplicidade do modelo.This paper seeks to explain the investments made by Brazilian firms operating in the capital market, using a modified accelerator model. The modification done in the basic model was the substitution of either the aggregate consumption or the capital stock by the firms' sales value. The parameters of the model were estimated by ordinary least squares using cross-sections. The application of such analysis to the selected sample allowed us to verify a strong correlation between investment expenditures and sales level. Based on these results, we can estimate changes in investments from one year to another. This is extremely important due to the simplicity of the model.

Na análise dos dados utilizou-se correlações de Pearson para verificar qual o tipo de relação entre CV e NG e entre CV e NGP, ambos para as 3 amostras. Os resultados indicam que o tempo de enquadramento em qualquer nível de governança, exceto o tradicional, tem relação inversa com regularidade de pagamento de dividendos, reafirmando possíveis gerenciamentos de resultados (income smoothing em companhias não enquadradas ou com pouco tempo de enquadramento. Constatou-se também que o tipo de nível de governança corporativa guarda relação apenas com a regularidade de pagamento de dividendos aos acionistas preferenciais.

    Full Text Available Resumo A concentração de propriedade há muito vem sendo estudada para verificar se impacta no desempenho das empresas. O presente artigo tem por objetivo verificar se a estrutura de propriedade, mais especificamente a concentração de propriedade, tem algum impacto no desempenho das empresas do setor elétrico. Embora sejam numerosos os trabalhos que tratam sobre a relação de Desempenho e Concentração de Propriedade, este se propõe a apresentar uma proposta de abordagem metodológica por meio de uma nova combinação de variáveis. O trabalho busca reacender a discussão da concentração de propriedade no Brasil e a identidade desses acionistas em um cenário peculiar de escândalos de má gestão, controle de resultados e corrupção de empresas no Brasil, sob a óptica da relação entre capital privado e público, com a análise sendo feita no setor de energia elétrica. O estudo foi realizado por meio da análise de dados em painel. A amostra compôs-se de 22 empresas brasileiras de capital aberto do setor de energia elétrica analisadas nos anos de 2010 a 2014. Verificou-se melhor desempenho das empresas privadas em comparação com as públicas, das empresas com ações ordinários nas mãos de apenas um acionista majoritário e relação positiva com o lucro líquido. Por outro lado, as variáveis relativas às ações ordinárias nas mãos de dois maiores acionistas e ativo total apresentaram relação negativa com o desempenho.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta o impacto no custo de capital próprio para as empresas brasileiras de capital aberto face à adoção dos princípios de sustentabilidade. O conceito de desenvolvimento sustentável tem se aprimorado num processo contínuo de reavaliação da relação existente entre: crescimento econômico, a sociedade civil e o meio ambiente. O triple-bottom-line das dimensões econômica, ambiental e social da sustentabilidade tem emergido como um modelo de interpretação pelas empresas, embora cada uma dessas dimensões represente um grande desafio. O segmento corporativo vem atendendo às demandas cada vez maiores da sociedade frente a essas questões, ficando a dúvida quanto à legitimidade dessas ações e o questionamento relativo ao papel das empresas na economia e na sociedade. Para avaliar o impacto no custo de capital próprio, foi implementado um modelo de decomposição do beta em medidas contábeis de risco, incluindo uma variável referente à sustentabilidade. O resultado confirma a expectativa de que ao aderir aos padrões de sustentabilidade a empresa reduz o risco corporativo medido pelo risco sistemático, determinando a redução do custo de capital e aumento do valor econômico.This article provides an analysis of equity costs in Brazilian public companies regarding the adoption of sustainability principles. The concept of sustainable development has evolved considering the relation among economic growth, the society and the environment. The triple-bottom-line of economic, environmental, and social dimensions has emerged as an interpretation model by companies, although each of these dimensions may present a challenge. The corporate sector has faced an increasing demand from society regarding these sustainability concepts, though the actions and the role to be played by companies within this context are still being questioned. Equity costs were analyzed by a multivariate regression of beta on accounting measures

A principal é o desbalanceamento, cada vez maior, entre os interesses da indústria cultural e os da sociedade, em favor da primeira, provocado, em anos recentes, por mudanças sucessivas no direito de propriedade intelectual por pressão da mesma indústria cultural que tem, hoje, o seu modelo de negócio ameaçado por práticas apoiadas por novas tecnologias de informação e comunicação e, especificamente, pela Internet. Tal desbalanceamento cerceia, em particular, a escola na escolha dos recursos mais apropriados para a educação de seus alunos. Um contramovimento promove "conteúdos abertos". Um ambiente que foi desenhado para apoiar a comunidade escolar na publicação e no compartilhamento de conteúdos para, dessa forma, ajudá-la a promover uma educação com parâmetros mais democráticos e adequados às transformações em curso é apresentado.Ongoing changes in the scenario of knowledge production and dissemination as well as some of the important issues that induced them are pointed out. The main one is an increasing shift of balance from the interests of society to those of the culture industry promoted, these last years, by successive amendments to the intellectual property rights. These were passed under the pressures of that industry whose business model is nowadays threatened by the practices supported by the new information and communication technologies and the Internet in particular. Such shift of balance specifically limits schools in their choices of the most appropriate resources to educate their students. A counter-movement is promoting "open contents" through an environment, presented here, designed to support the school community in publishing and sharing tasks. It is aimed at helping that community promote an education with more democratic and better

Nineteen patients with type 2 diabetes completed the feasibility study. Feasibility was assessed by a questionnaire-based interview with patients 2 months after the final consultation and interviews with HCPs. Patient participation was measured by 10-second event coding based on digital recordings and observations of the consultations.  Results: HCPs reported that EMMA supported patient-centered consultations by facilitating dialogue, reflection, and patient activity. Patients reported that they experienced valuable learning during the consultations, felt understood, and listened to and felt a trusting relationship with HCPs. Consultations became more person-specific, which helped patients and HCPs to discover inadequate diabetes self-management through shared decision-making. Compared with routine consultations, HCPs talked less and patients talked more. Seven of ten dialogue tools were used by all patients. It was difficult to complete the EMMA consultations within the scheduled time.  Conclusion: The EMMA program was feasible, usable, and acceptable to patients and HCPs. The use of tools elicited patients’ perspectives and facilitated patient participation and shared decision-making.

    Full Text Available We study the wave-related (AC and static (DC parallel Poynting vector (Poynting energy flux as a function of altitude in auroral field lines using Polar EFI and MFE data. The study is statistical and contains 5 years of data in the altitude range 5000–30000 km. We verify the low altitude part of the results by comparison with earlier Astrid-2 EMMA Poynting vector statistics at 1000 km altitude. The EMMA data are also used to statistically compensate the Polar results for the missing zonal electric field component. We compare the Poynting vector with previous statistical DMSP satellite data concerning the electron precipitation power. We find that the AC Poynting vector (Alfvén-wave related Poynting vector is statistically not sufficient to power auroral electron precipitation, although it may, for Kp>2, power 25–50% of it. The statistical AC Poynting vector also has a stepwise transition at R=4 RE, so that its amplitude increases with increasing altitude. We suggest that this corresponds to Alfvén waves being in Landau resonance with electrons, so that wave-induced electron acceleration takes place at this altitude range, which was earlier named the Alfvén Resonosphere (ARS. The DC Poynting vector is ~3 times larger than electron precipitation and corresponds mainly to ionospheric Joule heating. In the morning sector (02:00–06:00 MLT we find that the DC Poynting vector has a nontrivial altitude profile such that it decreases by a factor of ~2 when moving upward from 3 to 4 RE radial distance. In other nightside MLT sectors the altitude profile is more uniform. The morning sector nontrivial altitude profile may be due to divergence of the perpendicular Poynting vector field at R=3–4 RE.

    Os aglomerados abertos são objetos de grande valor para o estudo da dinâmica da Galáxia devido esses objetos terem uma faixa de idade relativamente ampla. O trabalho visa estudar a dinâmica da estrutura espiral da Galáxia principalmente através do uso desses aglomerados, uma vez que o estudo da cinemática desses objetos é fundamental para esse objetivo. Nosso grupo trabalha no sentido de construir uma base de dados de aglomerados abertos contendo coordenadas, distância, idade, movimentos próprios e velocidades radiais e já disponibiliza uma nova versão do catálogo de aglomerados abertos o qual é uma compilação de edições anteriores, principalmente Lynga (1987), Mermilliod (1995) e ESO-B (Lauberts 1982). Nossa amostra possui cerca de 1630 aglomerados, mas nem todos os parâmetros acima citados foram determinados em sua totalidade. Para determinarmos esses parâmetros, derivamos as cores intrínsecas das estrelas membro de cada aglomerado a partir de seus tipos espectrais (busca feita no SIMBAD) obtendo assim o excesso de cor individual. A distribuição dos excessos de cor foi então utilizada para derivarmos o avermelhamento médio para cada aglomerado. De maneira similar, os tipos espectrais foram usados para estimar as magnitudes absolutas, e com as magnitudes absolutas e aparentes determinamos a respectiva distribuição do módulo de distância e finalmente a distância. Para determinar as idades foram confeccionados os diagramas cor-magnitude das estrelas de cada aglomerado onde foram superpostas a Seqüência Principal de Idade Zero (ZAMS). Superpomos a ZAMS de Schmidt-Kaler e isócronas de composição solar. Essas isócronas foram usadas para determinação das idades dos aglomerados. Uma vez que não temos ainda resultados finais, apresentamos então alguns diagramas cor-magnitude os quais foram usados para determinação, principalmente, da distância e idade dos aglomerados.

    《爱玛》是英国著名小说家简·奥斯丁的著作。她一生完成了六部小说,其中《爱玛》是她的巅峰之作,被很多评论家认为是她最成功、最成熟的作品。这不仅是指她的写作技巧,而且是指她思想认识上的成熟。随着西方女性主义文学批评理论的蓬勃发展,简·奥斯丁作为表现女性意识的女作家的先驱,她对英国女性文学的产生、发展及18世纪以后的文学产生了重要影响。该文用马克思主义女性主义批判中的男性统治中的父权制、资本主义经济制度、资本主义伦理道德来解读《爱玛》。%Emma is famous English novelist Jane Austen’s work. She completed six novels during her lifetime, including Pride and Prejudice,Sense and Sensibility,Persuasion and so on. Among her works, Emma is her most successful work. It is considered as her most successful and mature work by many reviewers. This comment not only refers to her writing skills, but also refers to the mature in thinking and understanding. With the flourishing development of the Western feminist literary criticism theory, Jane Austen, as the pioneer of women writers, has exerted important inlfuence on the start and development of British feminist literature and the later literature in the 18th century. The paper analyzes Emma with the theory of male-domination patriarchy, economic institutions of capitalism and the ethics of capitalism in the Marxist feminism criticism.

    Full Text Available Drosophila Fallen, 1823 (Diptera, Drosophilidae is for long a well-established model organism for genetics and evolutionary research. The ecology of these flies, however, has only recently been better studied. Recent papers show that Drosophila assemblies can be used as bioindicators of forested environment degradation. In this work the bioindicator potential of drosophilids was evaluated in a naturally opened environment, a coastal strand-forest (restinga. Data from nine consecutive seasonal collections revealed strong temporal fluctuation pattern of the majority of Drosophila species groups. Drosophila willistoni group was more abundant at autumns, whereas D. cardini and D. tripunctata groups were, respectively, expressive at winters and springs, and D. repleta group at both seasons. The exotic species D. simulans Sturtevant, 1919 (from D. melanogaster group and Zaprionus indianus Gupta, 1970 were most abundant at summers. Overall, the assemblage structure did not show the same characteristics of forested or urban environments, but was similar to the forests at winters and to cities at summers. This raises the question that this locality may already been under urbanization impact. Also, this can be interpreted as an easily invaded site for exotic species, what might lead to biotic homogenization and therefore can put in check the usage of drosophilid assemblages as bioindicators at open environments.Drosophila Fallen, 1823 (Diptera, Drosophilidae é, há muito tempo, um organismo modelo em pesquisas de genética e evolução.

    Full Text Available O objetivo geral deste estudo foi analisar o comportamento das empresas de capital aberto, do segmento ‘Novo Mercado’ da BM&FBovespa, quanto à adoção de práticas de gestão ambiental, à luz da teoria institucional. Em síntese, os objetivos específicos da pesquisa analisam a tendência para a homogeneidade e heterogeneidade de práticas ambientais das empresas, sua relação com a abordagem de gestão ambiental e com as pressões ambientais evidenciadas, dando destaque especial para o setor de Construção. É uma pesquisa descritiva, bibliográfica e documental, de abordagem quantitativa. Os dados foram obtidos a partir dos websites e relatórios anuais das empresas, de 2009 e 2010. Constatou-se que 66,7% das 123 empresas do Novo Mercado adotam práticas ambientais. Quanto à abordagem de gestão ambiental, 58,5% dessas empresas são proativas, 28% reativas, e 13,4% preventivas. Verificou-se que quanto mais proativa a abordagem de gestão ambiental, mais diversificadas são as pressões ambientais, e maior é a possibilidade de existir isomorfismo entre as empresas quanto à adoção de práticas sustentáveis, assim como heterogeneidade. Na análise do setor de construção, constatou-se essas possibilidades destacadas, sendo as práticas homogêneas e heterogêneas desse campo detalhadas e discutidas no estudo.   Palavras-chave Teoria institucional, Pressões ambientais, Gestão Ambiental.     ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT OF COMPANIES OF THE SEGMENT 'NEW MARKET': DISCUSSING THE HOMOGENEITY AND HETEROGENEITY OF PRACTICES IN LIGHT OF INSTITUTIONAL THEORY   ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to analyze the behavior of companies of the segment 'New Market' BM&FBovespa, on the adoption of environmental management practices in light of institutional theory.

    Full Text Available A pneumonia é a infecção nosocomial mais comum em unidades de terapia intensiva, sendo a ventilação mecânica um fator fortemente associado ao seu desenvolvimento. O objetivo deste estudo foi descrever o impacto do sistema de aspiração traqueal aberto e fechado na incidência de pneumonia associada à ventilação mecânica. Realizou-se uma pesquisa na base de dados Pubmed para identificar tentativas controladas aleatórias, publicadas no período de 1990 a novembro de 2008. Nove estudos foram incluídos. Dos estudos revisados, sete não observaram redução significante da incidência de pneumonia associada à ventilação mecânica com o uso do sistema fechado comparado ao aberto, sendo que dois destes verificaram que o uso do sistema fechado resulta em incremento nas taxas de colonização sem incrementar sua incidência e um observou que o uso do sistema fechado não incrementa a colonização do trato respiratório e reduz a expansão de infecção resultando em redução nas taxas de sepse. Apenas dois estudos verificaram redução na incidência de pneumonia associada à ventilação mecânica com o uso do sistema fechado, e um destes revelou um risco 3.5 vezes maior de desenvolvimento desta infecção com o sistema aberto. Os resultados sugerem que o impacto do sistema de aspiração traqueal aberto e fechado é semelhante para o desenvolvimento da pneumonia associada à ventilação mecânica, assim a escolha do tipo de sistema de aspiração traqueal deve ser baseada em outros parâmetros. Entretanto, o sistema fechado aumenta o risco de colonização do trato respiratório, mas apresenta como vantagens a manutenção da ventilação mecânica e o menor prejuízo hemodinâmico.Pneumonia is the most common nosocominal infection in intensive care units and mechanical ventilation is a significant factor associated to its development. The objective of this study was to describe the impact of the open and closed tracheal suction

    Full Text Available Open Access Serial seems to be the new paradigm in scientific publication representing a growing tendency in all society segments. In particular, we are interested in the application of the Open Access serial model to High Dilution research. Such multidisciplinary area is opened to experts from all area of knowledge, requiring experimental trials and models as well theoretical approaches. However these researchers must be brought together around a thematic serial, peer-reviewed and easily accessed, able to reach a high impact parameter without lose its focus, where theoretical backgrounds and concepts could be presented and intensely discussed, ranging from experimental to theoretical approaches, basic to applied researches, also reporting clinical, historical and sociological papers. The features of the Open Access fit well with the High Dilution community needs for a scientific serial. Also, an electronic support makes possible divulgate larger texts, figures, movies, interviews, audio, and any other kind of multimedia. Thus, an Open Access scientific serial dedicated to High Dilutions would be very well accepted by the international community involved in high dilutions research.

    Full Text Available The planning and implementation of legal units of environmental management have been conflicting, generating social and economic predicaments. These conflicts generate cognitive, emotional and affective movements, that somehow contribute to learning with the operation. The Environmental Education, as a mediating process, enables the collective construction of the sustainable development process for the productive sectors, with an open methodological proposal, whose model is to generate solutions from social participation. In this sense, it is understood that Environmental Education is a process of educational praxis that aims at building values, attitudes, concepts, skills, standards, knowledge and shared practices for the constructing a style of thinking that contributes to environmental citizenship. Trying to understand and contribute with this social dynamics, have been conducted, from 2001 to 2006, numerous and multiple environmental teaching actions in the highlands region of Santa Catarina. This movement resulted in the development of an open model of environmental education which is mediated by the environmental perception of social actors involved, understanding perception as the integration of biological, psychological and social dimensions. Thus, the proposition for the Open Model of Environmental Education with the paradigm of transdisciplinary opening mediated by the environmental perception of social actors involved will result in the collective construction of solutions to local environmental problems.

    Full Text Available Sistemas Integrados de Gestão ou Enterprise Resources Planning - ERP possibilitam o processamento das informações necessárias em uma empresa usando um único banco de dados. Muito tem se escrito sobre este tipo de software, abordando questões como o alto custo da aquisição de licenças, e a dependência de consultoria para a sua adaptação e implantação nas empresas. Atualmente vem crescendo o desenvolvimento e uso de ERP Livre de Código Aberto (FOS-ERP. Porém verifica-se que este tipo de sistema ainda não é suficientemente explorado, mesmo no meio acadêmico. Este artigo relata alguns trabalhos publicados sobre o assunto e levanta questões que devem ser tratadas por pesquisadores e demais interessados para adequar e viabilizar o uso desses sistemas conforme a realidade nacional. Assim, após uma introdução ao tema, são apresentadas algumas diferenças entre o FOS-ERP e seus equivalentes proprietários (Proprietary ERP ou P-ERP em termos de modelos de negócios, seleção, customização e evolução. Em seguida são elencados alguns desafios e oportunidades que o FOS-ERP pode oferecer a usuários, fornecedores, pesquisadores e colaboradores individuais. Concluindo, este artigo busca ampliar a discussão sobre FOS-ERP, destacando fatores tais como seu potencial de inovação tecnológica e estratégias de negócios.Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP enables the processing of information required in an enterprise, using a single database.

    Full Text Available CONTEXTO: O objetivo deste estudo é avaliar a eficácia do milnaciprano em pacientes ambulatoriais com depressão maior grave que não respondem em tempo e em dosagem adequados à terapia com ISRSs. MÉTODOS: Um estudo aberto multicêntrico com a duração de 12 semanas foi elaborado para avaliar a eficácia do milnaciprano após falha em um experimento com ISRS. Remissão completa (HAMD-17 50%, CGI e avaliação da qualidade de vida (WHOQOL-Bref. RESULTADOS: O escore HAMD-17 médio da amostra foi de 27 (7,2. As taxas de remissão com o milnaciprano foram de 17,5%, e as de resposta, 61,3%. Na linha de base, 70,9% dos pacientes foram classificados como gravemente sintomáticos. Ao final do tratamento, 48,1% dos pacientes foram classificados como normais assintomáticos ou sintomáticos limítrofes e 20,2% eram moderadamente sintomáticos. Além disso, os quatro domínios do WHOQOL-Bref, um instrumento genérico de mensuração de qualidade de vida, apresentou diferenças clínicas e estatísticas: CONCLUSÃO: Nossos resultados sugerem que o milnaciprano é uma possível opção para pacientes que não respondem a ISRSs. Uma vez que não há evidências na literatura de um antidepressivo que seja a melhor opção quando um ISRS falha, o uso do milnaciprano deveria ser considerado em casos de pacientes com depressão severa.BACKGROUND: The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of milnacipran in outpatients experiencing severe MDD non-respondent to adequate time and dosing of SSRI therapy. METHODS: A 12 week multi-centric study open study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of milnacipran after a SRRI trial failure.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: Avaliar por questionário qual o nível de facilidade ou dificuldade para aplicação tópica de medicações oculares: vaporização em olho fechado ou instilação de gotas em olho aberto e constatar por meio da observação de pacientes pelos autores qual o método que foi utilizado com maior adequação técnica para aplicação de drogas tópicas oculares. Métodos: A pesquisa foi um ensaio clínico pareado e randomizado, realizada nos meses de agosto e setembro de 2012 no ambulatório de Oftalmologia da Policlínica Ronaldo Gazolla (Campus Arcos da Lapa, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade Estácio de Sá, RJ em 50 pacientes conveniados de planos de saúde ou do SUS. Foi utilizado um frasco de colírio e um de vaporizador com solução Optive®. Cada participante aplicou em um dos olhos a solução por vaporização ou instilação de gotas através de um processo randomizado. Foi perguntado aos pacientes questões pré-formuladas sobre a praticidade de ambos os métodos e observada à técnica de aplicação. Resultados: 32% acharam difícil ou muito difícil a vaporização em olho fechado e 34% a instilação de colírio (p=0,9562. A dificuldade mais comum para ambos os métodos foi "acertar o olho" e ocorreu em 53% dos pacientes que tiveram dificuldades para vaporização e por 65%dos que apresentaram dificuldade para aplicação de colírio. 38% dos pacientes necessitaram de mais de uma instilação para aplicação do colírio, enquanto 30% dos pacientes precisaram de mais de uma aplicação para que a droga vaporizada tivesse contato com o olho (p=0,5224. Em 74% dos pacientes houve toque da ponta do colírio com os cílios, já com o vaporizador não houve um toque do orifício do vaporizador com o dedo do paciente (p=0,5433.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Revisar os principais protocolos de padronização para o teste de provocação oral aberto aplicado a crianças com suspeita de alergia ao leite de vaca mediada por imunoglobulina E. FONTES DE DADOS: Foram selecionados artigos publicados, nos últimos dez anos, nas bases de dados Medline, Lilacs e SciELO, utilizando-se os descritores de assunto: "hipersensibilidade alimentar", "leite de vaca", "alergia ao leite de vaca", "teste de provocação oral", "crianças" e "diagnóstico". SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: O teste de provocação oral é o método mais fidedigno para estabelecer ou excluir o diagnóstico de alergia alimentar e sua forma aberta pode ser a primeira opção, quando apenas reações objetivas são esperadas. O local para realizar o teste deve possuir todos os recursos para tratamento de emergência. Como preparo, o paciente deve seguir dieta de exclusão do alimento suspeito e descontinuar o uso de medicamentos que possam interferir no resultado do teste. Habitualmente, utilizam-se 8 a 10g de leite em pó ou 100mL de leite fluido, oferecidos em volumes progressivos, a intervalos de dez a 60 minutos. Apesar da rigidez do método, ainda existem situações em que há dificuldade de interpretação dos resultados; por isso, médicos bem treinados devem aplicar o teste, sendo cautelosos ao julgarem as reações. CONCLUSÕES: Mesmo considerando as limitações que dificultam a aplicação do teste de provocação oral na prática clínica, a implementação do teste nos serviços de saúde poderia reduzir diagnósticos falsos-positivos de alergias.OBJECTIVE: To review the main standardization protocols of the open oral food challenge applied to children with suspicion of cow's milk allergy mediated by immunoglobulin E.

Foram selecionadas 167 mulheres saudáveis com vida sexual ativa (77 no grupo do gestodeno e 90 no grupo do desogestrel, das quais 138 completaram os seis ciclos de tratamento. Em um subgrupo de novas usuárias realizou-se também perfil lipídico e hemostático. Foram avaliados 867 ciclos no total. Ocorreu sangramento irregular em 4,6% dos ciclos com gestodeno e em 8,1% com desogestrel. A tolerabilidade a ambas preparações foi boa, mas houve significativamente mais náusea no grupo do desogestrel. O controle de ciclo foi bom com os dois contraceptivos, sendo que houve freqüência significativamente menor de sangramento irregular no grupo do gestodeno quando se leva em conta que todos os ciclos foram considerados. Não houve alterações clinicamente significativas no perfil hemostático. O perfil lipídico mostrou tendência a tornar-se mais favorável após seis ciclos de tratamento com as duas preparações. Não ocorreu alteração no peso médio das mulheres no grupo do gestodeno; no grupo do desogestrel houve aumento significativo no peso médio de aproximadamente 1 kg após seis meses de tratamento. A adesão ao tratamento foi boa com as duas preparações. Os resultados deste estudo mostram que preparações contendo baixa dose de gestodeno ou desogestrel associados a 20 mg de etinilestradiol são contraceptivos bem tolerados que permitem bom controle de ciclo, sem efeitos colaterais significantes.An open-label comparative study was conducted in nine centers in Brazil to evaluate the tolerability and cycle control of two low-dose oral contraceptives containing 20 mg ethynylestradiol/75 mg gestodene and 20 mg ethynylestradiol/150 mg

    Full Text Available Em solos construídos após mineração de carvão, a contaminação das camadas superficiais com pirita provoca intensa acidificação do solo, acelera a intemperização de minerais, eleva os teores de Al e Mn e aumenta a lixiviação de bases. O presente trabalho avaliou características químicas, teor de argila e mineralogia, bem como a variabilidade espacial para algumas dessas características em três áreas de solos construídos após mineração de carvão a céu aberto no município de Lauro Müller, Santa Catarina. As três áreas selecionadas apresentavam diferenças no modo de construção topográfico. A primeira, denominada Mina Juliana (MJ, foi construída em 1996, utilizando material (sólum, regolito argiloso e rocha que foi separado e estocado antes da mineração, conforme previsto no plano de reabilitação. A segunda, denominada Mina do Apertado (MA, foi construída, em 1996, usando, como material de cobertura, o sólum proveniente do decapeamento de um morro adjacente à área. A terceira área, denominada Mina Rio do Meio (MRM, sofreu apenas construção topográfica em 1983, com mistura de resíduos de pirita de carvão e rochas de várias camadas. Amostras de solo foram coletadas em sistema de grade de pontos, em três profundidades, sendo analisados o pH em água, teores de Ca, Mg, K e Al trocáveis, H + Al e condutividade elétrica. Em amostras selecionadas, analisaram-se alguns metais pesados e a mineralogia da fração argila. Análises efetuadas em dois perfis de solo representativos das condições anteriores à mineração foram utilizados, para comparação. Todas as áreas apresentaram grande dispersão de valores para características químicas e teor de argila dos solos entre os pontos amostrados. O processo de construção do solo que resultou em maior uniformidade destas características e melhores condições para o estabelecimento de espécies vegetais foi o da área MJ.

O objetivo do artigo é investigar os determinantes da qualidade das práticas de governança corporativa das empresas brasileiras de capital aberto que possuem investimento público. A amostra da pesquisa é formada por 35 empresas públicas brasileiras de capital aberto para o ano de 2005 e por 34 empresas para o ano de 2006, com informações públicas disponibilizadas pela CVM. Utilizaram-se técnicas econométricas de regressão linear múltipla, com aplicação do método dos mínimos quadrados ordinários. Os resultados mostraram que a maior parte das empresas analisadas apresentam um nível de governança acima da média da amostra. Também foi evidenciado que maior concentração de ações de controle nas mãos de um único acionista influencia positivamente o indicador da qualidade das práticas de governança corporativa, e que alavancagem, tangibilidade, crescimento e idade impactam negativamente sobre as práticas de governança das empresas analisadas.ABSTRACTThe adoption of good practices of corporate governance allows transparent management, diminishing the asymmetry of information and the agency conflict.

    Full Text Available Les traductions des œuvres de Flaubert sont nombreuses. Cet abondant flux de versions comporte une multiplicité de solutions aux « problèmes » que les textes flaubertiens peuvent poser au médiateur linguistique. Ainsi, l’adaptation de leur esthétique particulière et du ton général de l’écriture ne repose pas toujours sur les mêmes stratégies formelles, qui varient suivant les traits du système littéraire récepteur de l’œuvre traduite. Pourtant, la traduction en galicien de Madame Bovary est imprégnée non seulement des caractéristiques propres à cette langue, mais encore des dispositions inhérentes à un champ littéraire encore peu consolidé.Flaubert’s works have been translated into an important number of languages all around the world. These versions present different solutions to the “problems” of Flaubert’s style. In fact, translated books content many aesthetic and formal modifications that are intimately related to the strategies actives into the literary system that receives the resultant text. However, there is a kind of double gaze in the translator’s work that hides the simultaneous development of other aspects that are not literary features. The Galician translation of Madame Bovary shows how stylistic choices are determined by extra-literary politics into a cultural system that is already not completely consolidated.Son muchas las traducciones existentes de las obras de Flaubert. Esta multitud de versiones conlleva la existencia de múltiples soluciones a los “problemas” que los textos de origen presentan al traductor. De hecho, la adaptación de la particular estética de los mismos y del tono general de su escritura no sigue un patrón único, al variar en función de las características inherentes al sistema literario receptor de la obra traducida. Es más, el respeto al principio de literalidad o las libertades del traductor, disimulan aspectos más allá de lo estrictamente literario y que también conviene tener en cuenta. La traducción al gallego de Madame Bovary está impregnada no solamente de las disposiciones lingüísticas propias de dicho idioma, sino que en ella pueden descifrarse algunos de los rasgos que afectan al desarrollo de un campo literario aún en proceso de consolidación.

    In our current society there is a strong need for citizens to work on their employability and to develop key competences. Developing those competences should starts during formal education, but maintained throughout working life. MOOCs can accommodate several of the needs of the lifelong learners.

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: To investigate the phenotype of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG in Brazilian families with mutation in exon 3 of TIGR/MYOC. METHODS: Seventy-eight POAG patients with a positive family history and eighteen unrelated patients with POAG were screened by automated DNA sequencing for mutations in exon 3 of the TIGR/MYOC gene. The pedigrees of POAG patients with mutations that lead to amino acid change were built. All available relatives of the index cases were also examined and genotyped by sequencing. RESULTS: Four sequence variants were identified in exon 3 of the TIGR/MYOC gene (Tyr347Tyr, Pro370Pro, Lys398Arg and Cys433Arg from the 96 initially screened patients. The Lys398Arg mutation was previously described as a polymorphism and in our study did not segregate with POAG. The most prevalent mutation was Cys433Arg, affecting 3 index cases (3.1% or 3/96. In two different families, 8/56 subjects presented Cys433Arg mutation and had POAG, 5/56 had ocular hypertension and 8/56 had no disease manifestation. POAG patients had a median age at diagnosis of 43.25 yr (17-58 yr and intraocular pressure (IOP with a mean of 36.3 ± 3.8mmHg for the right eye and 37.6 ± 9.75 mmHg for the left eye.

Assim acredita-se que a troca da firma de auditoria contribui para o aumento da independência entre o relacionamento da auditoria e do cliente, que se pode desgastar durante o tempo. Espera-se que o novo auditor seja severo em relação à prática do Gerenciamento de Resultados (GR e, como consequência, ocorra um menor nível de gerenciamento de resultados. Neste sentido, o objetivo desta pesquisa é verificar se o rodízio de auditoria influencia no gerenciamento de resultados das empresas de capital aberto dos setores econômicos da Bovespa, utilizando o modelo de Kang e Sivaramakrishnan (1995. Tem-se, como hipótese, que no ano da troca da firma de auditoria o gerenciamento de resultados tende a diminuir e que nos anos subsequentes tende a aumentar. A pesquisa foi realizada nos dados das três empresas com maior ativo de cada setor econômico, que possuem papéis negociados na Bovespa no exercício de 2008, excluindo o setor financeiro. Desta forma, a pesquisa se caracteriza como descritiva e documental com abordagem quantitativa. Os resultados evidenciam que a troca de firma de auditoria não está diretamente relacionada à diminuição do gerenciamento de resultados. Alguns setores apresentam uma tendência para tal, porém, não se pode aceitar as hipóteses em sua totalidade.ABSTRACTThe job of Independent auditors is to certify the financial statements in order to demonstrate the real of financial and economic situation of the company.

    As cidades podem ser entendidas como organizações estritamente humanas, nas quais o homem atua com toda a sua força e plenitude, transformando a natureza em função de suas necessidades. Com isso, o homem elegeu a cidade como sua morada e a cada ano que passa o número de pessoas nelas vem crescendo vertiginosamente. Esses grandes aglomerados urbanos acabam criando um verdadeiro clima urbano gerado através da interferência dos fatores que se processam sobre a camada de limite urbano e que agem alterando o clima em escala local.

    Full Text Available This article presents an investigation into the self-archiving in digital repositories as a relationship of rights and duties in the context of the network society and open access. We start with a case study on the perception of Brazilian researchers about the uses and purposes of the Institutional Repository of CEDES Network. This created conditions to observe and reflect on the social and political commitment of the researchers of CEDES Network to organize and make available their products of that ministerial action in open access. We conducted ten interviews with researchers of CEDES Network in the period of 19/11/2010 to 14/09/2011 and used some statistics of the RIRC and the network itself as data. In this text, we present a discussion about self-archiving in RIRC from three main concepts: collective distribution; collective intelligence; participative culture. As a result of this research, we found that there are contradictions between discourse guided by the ideal qualities of digital repositories and open access in contrast to the effective practice that should materialize this discourse.

  9. Concept for estimating mitochondrial DNA haplogroups using a maximum likelihood approach (EMMA)☆

    2013-01-01

    The assignment of haplogroups to mitochondrial DNA haplotypes contributes substantial value for quality control, not only in forensic genetics but also in population and medical genetics. The availability of Phylotree, a widely accepted phylogenetic tree of human mitochondrial DNA lineages, led to the development of several (semi-)automated software solutions for haplogrouping. However, currently existing haplogrouping tools only make use of haplogroup-defining mutations, whereas private mutations (beyond the haplogroup level) can be additionally informative allowing for enhanced haplogroup assignment. This is especially relevant in the case of (partial) control region sequences, which are mainly used in forensics. The present study makes three major contributions toward a more reliable, semi-automated estimation of mitochondrial haplogroups. First, a quality-controlled database consisting of 14,990 full mtGenomes downloaded from GenBank was compiled. Together with Phylotree, these mtGenomes serve as a reference database for haplogroup estimates. Second, the concept of fluctuation rates, i.e. a maximum likelihood estimation of the stability of mutations based on 19,171 full control region haplotypes for which raw lane data is available, is presented. Finally, an algorithm for estimating the haplogroup of an mtDNA sequence based on the combined database of full mtGenomes and Phylotree, which also incorporates the empirically determined fluctuation rates, is brought forward. On the basis of examples from the literature and EMPOP, the algorithm is not only validated, but both the strength of this approach and its utility for quality control of mitochondrial haplotypes is also demonstrated.

    In a Fixed-Field, Alternating-Gradient (FFAG) accelerator, eliminating pulsed magnet operation permits rapid acceleration to synchrotron energies, but with a much higher beam-pulse repetition rate. Conceived in the 1950s, FFAGs are enjoying renewed interest, fuelled by the need to rapidly accelerate unstable muons for future high energy physics colliders. Until now a ‘scaling’ principle has been applied to avoid beam blow-up and loss. Removing this restriction produces a new breed of FFAG, a non-scaling variant, allowing powerful advances in machine characteristics. We report on the first non-scaling FFAG, in which orbits are compacted to within 10 mm in radius over an electron momentum range of 12 to 18 MeV/c. In this strictly linear-gradient FFAG, unstable beam regions are crossed, but acceleration via a novel serpentine channel is so rapid that no significant beam disruption is observed. This result has significant implications for future particle accelerators, particularly muon and high-intensity prot...

    Full Text Available If you choose to show a woman's gestures so precisely, it's because you love them. Chantal Akerman Woman, as a major category within art and literature, clearly lends itself to impersonal artistic tropes such as The Maternal and The Nude. 'Jeanne Dielman 23 Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles', as named and framed, re-assigns attention to the very idea of anonymity that appears to be the essential condition for woman's effective valorisation in art and literature, and with this loving attentiveness, new visibility is cast within the darkness upon which we are, as visual and cultural theorists, endlessly treading. Whilst discussing the making of her seminal film 'Jeanne Dielman', Chantal Akerman said: 'I began with several very precise images from my childhood: watching my mother at the stove; my mother carrying packages'. Although drawing on a deeply personal image-bank Akerman does not attempt to re-construct a moment from her childhood, or her mother. She is, however, engaging a retroactive memory within a signifying practice, which allows us to begin re-thinking feminine subjectivity as already structured within the symbolic. The need for adequate theoretical frameworks with which to consider the 'images of women' and the pleasure derived from watching/experiencing film has been an issue since Claire Johnston set out to plot the ideological implications of myth and its relation to women and the cinematic beyond the reflective position of much early second wave feminist criticism. The issues and implications of loss aligned to the Oedipal have long been on the feminist agenda, however, in its visual concern with what Akerman once referred to as the images between images, I suggest'Jeanne Dielman' can be seen to both displace and dis-play, an as-yet overlooked, latent potential for both visual and feminist analysis.

    2014-01-01

    Medical humanities is the interdisciplinary field of humanities (literature, philosophy, ethics, history, and religion), social science (anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, and sociology), and the arts (literature, theater, film, and visual arts), and their application to medical education and practice. In this chapter, the concept of 'hysteria' is put into a medical humanities perspective. We review the concept of hysteria concisely. Two novels and one autobiographical story are used as material in order to study how 'hysteria' is represented in literary work. Madame Bovary (Gustave Flaubert), Hedda Gabler (Henrik Ibsen), and A Story in an Almost Classical Mode (Harold Brodkey) were searched for elements that are characteristic of hysteria. Excessive emotion, dramatics, attention-seeking behavior, physical symptoms of unknown and unidentifiable organic causes, self-centered behavior, and flirtatious behavior are the six elements used to operationalize hysteria. It was found that these elements were present in both a quantitative and qualitative manner in the literary works examined. Acknowledging some limitations and suggesting some research areas and clinical implications, we conclude that literary works are useful in analyzing concepts in medicine. Also, more generally, using literary works seems to have a positive impact on readers, healthcare providers, and researchers in the healthcare domain. Studying novels and related literary work contributes to the body of knowledge of medical humanities.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1807-9288.2013v9n1p150   O poeta André Vallias configura-se como um dos nomes pioneiros da poesia digital. Em 1991, foi curador, juntamente com Friedrich Block, da “Primeira Mostra Internacional de Poesia Digital”, a P0es1s, e publicou poemas multimídias e hipermídias em sites e antologias nacionais e internacionais. Em um artigo intitulado “Nous n’avons pas compris Descartes”, Vallias define uma concepção de poema que guiará a sua primeira série de poemas digitais – poemas gráficos, poemas-diagramas –, e retomada nas suas produções multimídia e hipermídia subsequentes. Trata-se da visão do poema como um “diagrama aberto”, um poema que se constrói a partir de uma interrelação de códigos, liberto da predominância do signo verbal, dotados de intermidialidade. Este artigo propõe uma interpretação de três poemas desta primeira série, desenvolvidos através do software de desenho AutoCAD e posteriormente remediados para a interface da Web. As interpretações visam, em primeiro lugar, iluminar alguns dos possíveis sentidos desenvolvidos pelos poemas; e, em segundo, apontar a relação que os poemas estabelecem, por suas características, com aspectos da poética digital como um todo.

    Full Text Available Alguns antinflamatórios não esteroidais (AINE orais são eficientes para o tratamento dos ataques de migrânea ou enxaqueca. A despeito de sua eficiência para o tratamento destas cefaléias e de outras dores, existem comercialmente poucos antinflamatórios não esteroidais disponíveis para administração parenteral. O clonixinato de lisina (CL é um AINE derivado do ácido nicotínico que foi comprovadamente eficiente em vários tipos de síndromes álgicas como cólica renal, dor de compressão nervosa, dores musculares e odontalgias. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a eficácia do CL intravenoso (IV no tratamento de um episódio severo de migrânea. Estudamos prospectivamente 19 pacientes, 17 mulheres e 2 homens, com idades de 18 a 57 anos e diagnóstico de migrânea de acordo com os critérios da Sociedade Internacional de Cefaléias (SIC. Os pacientes foram orientados a dirigirem-se à clínica no momento que a dor se iniciasse e, uma vez atingida a intensidade severa, foi iniciada a infusão venosa de CL e salina, em uma veia superficial do antebraço. Avaliadas após 30, 60 e 90 minutos a intensidade da dor e a presença de efeitos colaterais, observamos que todos os 19 pacientes encontravam-se sem dor após 90 minutos. Alguns pacientes apresentaram efeitos adversos leves e não houve alterações significativas nos sinais vitais. Concluímos que o AINE clonixinato de lisina (2-(3-cloro-o-toluidinopiridino-3-carboxilato de lisina IV, derivado do ácido nicotínico, com estrutura química semelhante à do ácido flufenâmico, foi eficiente em abolir um ataque de intensidade severa de migrânea em 90 minutos em 19 pacientes. Estudos controlados com metodologia duplo-cega e randomizada, assim como maior número de pacientes e ataques tratados, são necessários para confirmar estas observações iniciais.

    Full Text Available This paper reflects on the limits of psychoanalytic impasses within the public institution which was formed after the Psychiatric Reform, by questioning the links between psychoanalysis and the other knowledge and practices which are to be found within a Psychosocial Care Center (CAPS. It revisits the historical role of psychiatric diagnosis in mental health, its distance from the philosophical and psychopathological field, and the current possibilities which such clinical insignia possess to express the patients´ suffering and uniqueness. It also questions the way in which psychoanalysis and psychoanalysts face up to the inclusion of this practice in institutional contexts, due to the differences in context and diversity of actors involved in the analytical process. It proposes a parallel between practices that focus on recovering the citizenship of the insane and the ideal sought by the clinic of subjectivity.

    Full Text Available This essay analyses the use of crime fiction in Francisco Goldman’s reportage The Art of Political Murder, and the contribution this makes to political change in the recent history of Guatemala. The aim of Goldman’s investigative report was not just to find a murderer, but above all to criticize the abuses of power perpetrated with impunity by the ‘State’, and the practices put in place to eradicate dissidence. To understand how the features of detective fiction are used in journalism to support the search for truth, the essay examines the social power of different typologies of Crime Novel. Goldman’s The Art of Political Murder is read from the viewpoint of literary Testimonio, against the Guatemalan and Central-American literary background, to see how it can contribute to the current struggle for identity.

    Full Text Available Objective: To study the correlation and effect of sequential measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP with Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT, ocular response analyzer (ORA, dynamic contour tonometer (DCT, and Corvis ST. Setting and Design: Observational cross-sectional series from the comprehensive clinic of a tertiary eye care center seen during December 2012. Methods: One hundred and twenty-five study eyes of 125 patients with normal IOP and biomechanical properties underwent IOP measurement on GAT, DCT, ORA, and Corvis ST; in four different sequences. Patients with high refractive errors, recent surgeries, glaucoma, and corneal disorders were excluded so as to rule out patients with evident altered corneal biomechanics. Statistical Analysis: Linear regression and Bland-Altman using MedCalc software. Results: Multivariate analysis of variance with repeated measures showed no influence of sequence of device use on IOP (P = 0.85. Linear regression r 2 between GAT and Corvis ST, Corvis ST and Goldmann-correlated IOP (IOPg, and DCT and Corvis ST were 0.37 (P = 0.675, 0.63 (P = 0.607, and 0.19 (P = 0.708, respectively. The Bland-Altman agreement of Corvis ST with GAT, corneal compensated IOP, and IOPg was 2 mmHg (−5.0 to + 10.3, −0.5 mmHg (−8.1 to 7.1, and 0.5 mmHg (−6.2 to 7.1, respectively. Intraclass correlation coefficient for repeatability ranged from 0.81 to 0.96. Conclusions: Correlation between Corvis ST and ORA was found to be good and not so with GAT. However, agreement between the devices was statistically insignificant, and no influence of sequence was observed.

    Stroke mortality rates in Brazil are the highest in the Americas. Deaths from cerebrovascular disease surpass coronary heart disease. To verify stroke mortality rates and morbidity in an area of São Paulo, Brazil, using the World Health Organization Stepwise Approach to Stroke Surveillance. We used the World Health Organization Stepwise Approach to Stroke Surveillance structure of stroke surveillance. The hospital-based data comprised fatal and nonfatal stroke (Step 1). We gathered stroke-related mortality data in the community using World Health Organization questionnaires (Step 2). The questionnaire determining stroke prevalence was activated door to door in a family-health-programme neighbourhood (Step 3). A total of 682 patients 18 years and above, including 472 incident cases, presented with cerebrovascular disease and were enrolled in Step 1 during April-May 2009. Cerebral infarction (84.3%) and first-ever stroke (85.2%) were the most frequent. In Step 2, 256 deaths from stroke were identified during 2006-2007. Forty-four per cent of deaths were classified as unspecified stroke, 1/3 as ischaemic stroke, and 1/4 due to haemorrhagic subtype. In Step 3, 577 subjects over 35 years old were evaluated at home, and 244 cases of stroke survival were diagnosed via a questionnaire, validated by a board-certified neurologist. The population demographic characteristics were similar in the three steps, except in terms of age and gender. By including data from all settings, World Health Organization stroke surveillance can provide data to help plan future resources that meet the needs of the public-health system.

    Full Text Available O labirinto em cruz elevado é um dos modelos mais usados no estudo da ansiedade, medo e fármacos que alteram esses estados. Apesar da simplicidade aparente do modelo, diversos são os fatores que afetam o comportamento de ratos submetidos a esse modelo. Além disso, não se conhece exatamente quais os estímulos ambientais são os desencadeadores da aversão nesse modelo. O presente trabalho sugere que, em estudos onde os estímulos auditivos e olfativos são controlados, a aversão em ratos é desencadeada pela visão. A hipótese de trabalho é que os mecanismos mediadores da aversão (e estados emocionais concomitantes são deflagrados pela entrada de luz e pela formação de imagens na retina dos animais. Para fundamentar essas hipóteses complementares, vários experimentos são analisados, cujos resultados favorecem uma, outra ou ambas as hipóteses. Finalmente, resultados obtidos com marcação da proteína c-Fos fornecem evidência neurofuncional que apóia as duas hipóteses sugeridas.

    Full Text Available The heterogeneity of business performance has been the subject of great concern for entrepreneurs and researchers of Social Sciences. There are numerous approaches and methodologies for the investigation of this subject, producing results on which there is no consensus among the most relevant authors. Regarding the approaches, some of the differences can be attributed to the researchers' preference for one of the competing explanatory theories of this phenomenon – the Industrial Organization, the Resource-based View (RBV, the Dynamic Skills Theory and the Theory of Market Processes. The authors of the Theory of Dynamic Skills consider leverage and regeneration of resources and capabilities as essential factors for the formation of competitive advantage, and highlight the crucial role of strategic management in this field. These new ideas stimulated the analysis of the influence of firm factors performance, among which the contribution of managerial aspects, the line of research chosen for this article, which aims to investigate the contribution of Corporate Governance in the performance of Brazilian publicly traded companies registered at BM&FBOVESPA.

Companies listed on stock exchange composed three samples, segregated according to (i payment of dividends to common stockholders, (ii preferential or (iii total of dividends paid by the company. Coefficients of variation (CV of the series of dividends payment from companies in the analyzed period were used as a metric to represent regularity. About the levels of corporate governance, were assigned two metrics: a simple (NG, giving 1 point per year that the company was framed at some level, which considers them in accordance with the time of framing; and another balanced (NGP, giving a point per year framed at Level 1 (N1, 2 points per year at Level 2 (N2 and 3 points per year in the New Market (NM, which considers the time of framing in the governance and the kind of level. In the analysis was used Pearson correlations to examine what is the type of relation between CV and NG and between NG and NGP, both for the three samples. The results indicate that the time of framing in some level of governance, except the traditional one, seem to be inversely related to the regularity of dividends payment, reaffirming possible income managements (income smoothing in not framed companies or in companies that have been framed recently. It was also found that the kind of corporate governance level is related only with the regularity of dividends payment to preferential stockholders.

    The balance of K+, Na+ and Cl- fluxes through cell membrane with the Na+/K+ pump, ion channels and NKCC and NC cotransporters is considered. It is shown that all unidirectional K+, Na+ and Cl- fluxes through cell membrane, permeability coefficients of ion channels and membrane potential can be computed for balanced ion distribution between cell and the medium if K+, Na+ and Cl- concentration in cell water and three fluxes are known: total Cl- flux, total K+ influx and ouabain-inhibitable "pump" component of the K+ influx. Changes in the mortovalent ion balance in lymphoid cells U937 induced to apoptosis by 1 microM staurosporine are analyzed as an example. It is found that the apoptotic shift in ion and water balance in studied cells is caused by a decrease in the pump activity which is accompanied by a decrease in the integral permeability of Na+ channels without significant increase in K+ and Cl- channel permeabilities. Computation shows that only a small part of the total fluxes of K+, Na+ and Cl- accounts for the fluxes via NKCC and NC cotransporters. Therefore, cotransport fluxes can not be studied using inhibitors.

    2003-01-01

    SUMMARY Jewish feminist and queer engagement in Jewish life and Judaism are transforming the practices and foundational orientations of traditional modes. Jewish feminist, queer ritual innovation in particular is inspired by an array of secular and radical critical theories as much as it is by the historic concrete experiences of a diversity of Jews in different Jewish communities. It is important to hold all of us who are involved in religious ritual innovation responsible to the knowledges we have developed and learned in critical theory or we risk, even with the best of intentions and creativity, re-inscribing some of the very problems of traditional ontological norms that we might have originally sought to disrupt and subvert. This article looks specifically at examples of new "coming out" rituals for Jewish queers explored over time in the Jewish Queer Think Tank: honoring them as well as offering tools from secular critical theory to assist our work in keeping them accountable to our aspirations to both love and fundamentally transform Jewishness. Here I redefine the function of religious ritual itself in political terms as an identity-producing performance. As such I utilize social constructionist queer theories (i.e., Shane Phelan and Judith Butler), anarchists (i.e., Emma Goldman), and those involved in radical theatre (i.e., Augusto Boal) to articulate the revolutionary potential of ritual innovation.

I also emphasize that we must take into account not only to the voice, language and personality of a character or narrator when examining constructs of their (feminine self-image, but also other signs emerging elsewhere in the text.

  14. Development of an open source software of quantitative analysis for radionuclide determination by gamma-ray spectrometry using semiconductor detectors; Desenvolvimento de um codigo computacional aberto de analise quantitativa para determinacao de radionuclideos por espectrometria gama com detectores semicondutores

    Radioactivity quantification of gamma-ray emitter radionuclides in samples measured by HPGe gamma-ray spectrometry relies on the analysis of the photopeaks present in the spectra, especially on the accurate determination of their net areas. Such a task is usually performed with the aid of proprietary software tools. This work presents a methodology, algorithm descriptions and an open source application, called OpenGamma, for the peak search and analysis in order to obtain the relevant peaks parameters and radionuclides activities. The computational implementation is released entirely in open-source license for the main code and with the use of open software packages for interface design and mathematical libraries. The procedure for the peak search is performed on a three step approach. Firstly a preliminary search is done by using the second-difference method, consisting in the generation of a derived spectrum in order to find candidate peaks. In the second step, the experimental peaks widths are assessed and well formed and isolated ones are chosen to obtain a FWHM vs. channel relationship, by application of the Levenberg-Marquardt minimization method for non-linear fitting. Lastly, regions of the spectrum with grouped peaks are marked and a non-linear fit is again applied to each region to obtain baseline and photopeaks terms; from these terms, peaks net areas are then assessed.

  15. As relações entre ciência e política, especialização e democracia: a trajetória de um debate em aberto

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    MAYA MITRE

    Full Text Available resumo O artigo recupera momentos-chave do debate sobre as relações entre ciência e política, expertise e democracia, concentrando-se em diversos autores e disciplinas das ciências humanas. O objetivo é esclarecer as origens e a substância dos atuais debates sobre a "democratização da expertise", assim como discutir alternativas para se lidar com o problema da aparente incompatibilidade entre as demandas por maior participação pública nas sociedades democráticas contemporâneas e a crescente importância da técnica e do conhecimento especializado para seu funcionamento. Enfatiza-se, especialmente, a forma como esse problema tem sido pensado no que diz respeito a temas da ciência e da tecnologia.

    Full Text Available Trata-se de ensaio que apresenta um estudo exploratório da retórica paradigmática da saúde com o objetivo de analisar os principais elementos de discurso dos movimentos ideológicos que historicamente construíram o campo social da saúde, particularmente na segunda metade do século XX. São destacados os esforços empreendidos pela Organização Panamericana da Saúde para debater a teoria e a prática da saúde pública na região das Américas cotejando-os com as demandas emergentes no contexto econômico, político e social dos países latino-americanos. Neste particular, destaca-se a necessidade de construir uma agenda política comum, a partir da confluência de três temáticas - reforma setorial, "Renovação da Saúde para Todos" (RSPT e "nova saúde pública", contemplando os planos doutrinário, conceitual, metodológico e operativo. Apresenta-se uma breve sistematização do marco conceitual da saúde coletiva, em elaboração na América Latina, situando mais particularmente as suas potencialidades de construção de um conhecimento transdisciplinar. Conclui-se que, apesar de em si não constituir um paradigma, a saúde coletiva, enquanto movimento ideológico comprometido com a transformação social, apresenta possibilidades de articulação com novos paradigmas científicos capazes de abordar o objeto saúde-doença-cuidado respeitando sua historicidade e integralidade.The present essay is an exploratory study of the historical and institutional background of the so-called "crisis in public health", aimed at identifying the new trends and perspectives for the paradigmatic transformation of the health field in the context of the current international panorama of economic and cultural globalization. First, the rhetoric of health is analysed in historical perspective, briefly considering the main elements of the discourse of the ideological movements that historically built the social field of health. Medical Police, Social Medicine and Public Health are included as representative of such movements in 19th century Western Europe. After the Flexnerian turn, these movements were followed by Preventive Medicine, Community Health, Primary Health Care and Health Promotion, which dominated the scene particularly in the second half of the 20th century. The authors also summarise recent concerted PAHO efforts to debate the theory and practice of Public Health in the Americas, vis à vis the emerging demands of the economic, political and social context of Latin American countries. In this regard, the need for a common political agenda is emphasized , with the convergence of three topics - sectorial reform, "Renovation of Health for All" and the "new public health", covering the conceptual, methodological and operative domains. Secondly, a brief systematic account of the conceptual landmarks of the Collective Health movement, as carried through in the two last decades in Latin America, is presented, focusing more particularly on its potential for building up both a domain of transdisciplinary knowledge and a universe of practices. As a field of knowledge, it contributes to the study of health-disease phenomena in populations as a social process, investigating the production and distribution of disease in society as an aspect of social reproduction, and analysing health practices as a labor process integrated into the other social practices. As a universe of practices, Collective Health focuses on its models or action guidelines four objects of intervention: policies (forms of power distribution; practices (behavior modification; culture; institutions; knowledge production; institutional, professional and relational practices; technologies (organization and regulation of productive resources and processes; bodies/environments, and instruments (means of production of interventions. Finally, it is concluded that, although not being in itself a paradigm, Collective Health, as a movement committed to the social transformation of health, presents some possibilities of articulation with new scientific paradigms capable of approaching the health-disease-care object with due regard to its historicity and complexity.

    Full Text Available Botulinum toxin type A (BT-A has been described as an important strategy to various types of pain such as cervical dystonia, myofascial pain syndrome and headache. Although BT-A efficacy has not been proven in tension type headache, its use in migraine continues controversial. In this open trial, we evaluated the efficacy of BT-A in refractory migraine. BT-A was injected in patients diagnosed with migraine who had previously used three classes of prophylactic drugs by at least one year with no response. The most important improvement was observed within 30 days, but pain intensity and frequency of headache had been decreased until the end of three months of follow up. Side effects of BT-A were mild and self limited. We conclude that BT-A seems to be a safe and effective treatment to refractory migraine patients.Toxina botulínica tipo A (TB-A tem sido descrita como importante estratégia para diversos tipos de dor como cefaléia e dores relacionadas a distonia cervical ou síndrome miofascial. Embora a eficácia da TB-A não tenha sido demonstrada na cefaléia do tipo tensional, seu uso na enxaqueca continua controverso. Nesse estudo avaliamos a eficácia da TB-A na enxaqueca refratária. TB-A foi injetada em pacientes com enxaqueca que fizeram tratamento prévio com no mínimo três classes de medicamentos profiláticos, sem resultados satisfatórios. A melhora mais significativa dos pacientes foi observada após 30 dias de aplicação de TB-A, enquanto intensidade da dor e freqüência de cefaléia continuaram reduzidas até o final de três meses de seguimento. Os efeitos colaterais observados após a aplicação de TB-A foram moderados e auto-limitados. Os nossos dados mostram que TB-A parece ser um tratamento seguro e eficaz para pacientes com enxaqueca refratária.

    Full Text Available This article analyzes the evolution of the quality of corporate governance practices by Brazilian companies that are non listed on the stock exchange from 2003 through 2007. The data were collected through System DIVEXT of the CVM. As a proxy for determining the quality of corporate governance practices, the Corporate Governance Index of the Brazilian Companies Unlisted on Stock Exchange was used, calculated from a set of 14 binary and objective questions. The results of the research show that half of the companies under study had a good level of governance. Concerning the Transparency dimension, the findings showed that there had been an improvement in the drafting of financial reports and that legal deadlines were being met. Furthermore, approximately half of the companies had contracted some form of global auditing. In the Composition and Functioning of Advice there were no signs of improvement, due to less concern over demands concerning the number of members, independence and length of mandate. The results of the Structure of Control and Behavior show that the vast majority of the companies had no agreements between shareholders. This is a positive improvement in good governance practices.

    The Split-Sting (SS) trait in honey bees, induced by gamma radiation, was discovered by Soares (1975). Bees with this trait are unable to sting, because the parts that compose the sting are separated. Many studies have been done in order to understand this new mutation. We studied the effect of gamma radiation on induction of the SS trait in feral bee strains. The doses were applied to the phase of larvae of queens with 5 days old. The following results were obtained: all doses of radiation induced the SS trait. There was an increase in the percentage of queens with SS with an increase in radiation dose; the SS trait induced by radiation is probably phenocopy; SS bees were observed in nature; increase of the rate mortality and malformation with an increase in radiation dose.

    Full Text Available Este artigo avalia a relação entre o tempo de mandato do Diretor-Presidente e o desempenho da organização. Testamos empiricamente duas hipóteses numa amostra de 34 firmas de grande porte negociadas na BOVESPA, entre 1999 e 2008. Para entender o desempenho das firmas, examinamos empresas que tiveram apenas um Diretor-Presidente durante o período. A análise permitiu concluir que (1 o tempo de mandato do Diretor-Presidente não está relacionado linearmente com o desempenho da organização, (2 o desempenho das organizações brasileiras perante o tempo de mandato dos seus Diretores-Presidentes tende a seguir uma curva em U-invertido, (3 mesmo em organizações familiares, o comportamento do desempenho assume o formato de U invertido. Isto indica que seria mais prudente realizar a sucessão do Diretor-Presidente quando a empresa inicia o declínio de desempenho.

RESULTADOS: Gradiente médio mitral (mmHg diminuiu (pPURPOSE: To compare immediate and late (12 months follow up of clinical and Doppler echocardiographic results between percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty and open commissurotomy in a prospective and randomized trial. METHODS: Eighty eight symptomatic patients with severe mitral stenosis and favorable anatomy were randomized in a prospective trial comparing the two procedures. All patients were submitted to clinical and Doppler echocardiographic evaluation before the procedures and immediate and twelve months thereafter. RESULTS: Mean mitral gradient (mmHg decreased from 12.2±5.8 to 5.80±2.7 (p<0.001 in commissurotomy group (CG and from 11.7±6.1 to 5.0±2.4 (p<0.001 in the balloon valvuloplasty group (VG.

In both groups there was a slight decrease in mitral valve area at 12 month follow-up. There was no death in either group. One patient in the VG had moderate mitral regurgitation and underwent surgery. At the 12 month follow-up, all patients in CG and 97.7% of patients in VG were in New York Heart Association functional class I or II. CONCLUSION: Both procedures were safe and showed similar immediate improvement in mitral gradient and functional class. Mitral valve area had a greater increase immediately after commissurotomy, however there was a significantly greater reduction in the CG after 12 months of follow-up, when compared to balloon valvuloplasty. In both groups, mitral gradient remained reduced and most patients did not change functional class during the follow-up.

    Full Text Available Há um debate na literatura a respeito da homogeneidade na composição dos grupos para portadores do HIV, segundo estágios da doença, formas de infecção e sexo dos participantes. Este estudo, baseado em uma concepção construcionista da terapia e da produção do conhecimento, buscou analisar como os sentidos sobre a soropositividade e o apoio eram negociados em uma sessão de um grupo de apoio voltado a esta população. Observamos que a homogeneidade e o apoio, antes de serem categorias a priori usadas para organizar o grupo, são ativamente construídas na e através da situação grupal por seus participantes. Implicações éticas e metodológicas decorrentes dessa análise apontam para o reconhecimento das condições sócio-históricas de construção dos sentidos da soropositividade e da hegemonia de algumas de suas descrições.There is a debate in the literature regarding the homogeneity in the composition of the groups for persons with HIV/AIDS, according to stages of the disease, infection forms, and the participants' sex. This study, based on a constructionist conception of the therapy and of the production of the knowledge, sought analyzing how the senses on the seropositivity and the support were negotiated in a session of a support group oriented to this population. We observed that the homogeneity and the support, before being a priori categories used to organize the group, are actively built in and through the group setting by its participants. Ethical and methodological implications of this analysis point to the recognition of the social-historical conditions for the construction of the senses of the seropositivity and of the hegemony of some of its descriptions.

    Full Text Available Governança corporativa pode ser entendida como o conjunto de mecanismos de gestão, que através de controles internos e externos visam reduzir a distância entre acionistas minoritários e o poder de controle da empresa. Nesse contexto, a gestão da informação, a mediação da informação e a disseminação da informação se fazem necessárias, visto que o estabelecimento da boa comunicação, rápida e clara, a fim de estabelecer um clima de confiança na relação da empresa com a sociedade, credores, colaboradores e, especialmente, investidores é extremamente importante. No Brasil, o modelo criado pela Bolsa de Valores de São Paulo chamado de ‘Novo Mercado’, traz em seu escopo regras de conduta adicionais às exigidas pela legislação brasileira e possui como base a equidade no tratamento entre partes, a transparência na disseminação de informações e responsabilidade na prestação de contas. Este artigo apresenta algumas considerações acerca do modelo de gestão da informação, os padrões adicionais de disseminação de informações, bem como o processo de mediação da informação relacionado à governança corporativa nesse ambiente empresarial.

Los niños de uno a tres años y los muy pequeños tienen un deseo innato de explorar sus mundos y, a medida que lo van haciendo, encuentran muchos caminos que pueden ayudarlos en su búsqueda de conocimiento y destrezas. Este artículo examina parte de la literatura en torno a la resolución de problemas y discute las evidencias de que los pequeños de uno a tres años se implican en la resolución de problemas complejos como fundamento de su futura comprensión matemática. Estas evidencias empíricas están basadas en el estudio de caso de una niña, en la etapa de uno a tres años, observada en su propia casa.Emma’s story: A case study of a toddler’s problem solving developmentABSTRACTProblem solving is an essential life skill developed very early in our lives, and in a variety of ways. Toddlers (approximately 12 months to three years of age and very young children have an innate desire to explore their worlds and as they do so encounter many ways that may assist them in their quest for knowledge and skills. This paper examines some of the literature surrounding problem solving and discusses evidence that toddlers do engage in solving complex problems as a foundation for future mathematical understanding. This empirical evidence is based upon a case study of a child, in the toddler stage, observed in her own home.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTOS: O adapaleno é um derivado do ácido naftóico, com propriedades biológicas similares às do ácido retinóico e utilizado no tratamento da acne vulgar. OBJETIVOS: Avaliar a eficácia e a tolerabilidade do adapaleno 0,1% gel no tratamento da acne vulgar leve à moderada, em pacientes residentes no Brasil. MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: Os pacientes aplicaram o gel à noite, durante 12 semanas, e foram avaliados quanto à efetividade pelo número de lesões em cada visita e quanto à tolerabilidade ao produto nas consultas da segunda e da décima segunda semana. RESULTADOS: Dos 125 pacientes, 81,6% completaram as 12 semanas de tratamento, e 10,4% dos casos terminaram o estudo antes do período estabelecido por estarem livres de lesões. Os resultados permitem confirmar a marcante atividade antiinflamatória, antiproliferativa e na diferenciação celular dos ceratinócitos. Houve diminuição dos comedões e das lesões inflamatórias, com resposta satisfatória no eritema, no ressecamento e na descamação da pele. Efeitos adversos pouco graves foram relatados em apenas 9,6% dos pacientes. CONCLUSÕES: O adapaleno, neste estudo e nos vários que o antecederam, vem-se mostrando uma das melhores opções de tratamento tópico para os casos leves a moderados de acne vulgar.BACKGROUND: Adapalene, a naftoic acid derivative with biological properties similar to those of the retinoic acid, is indicated in the treatment of acne vulgaris. OBJECTIVES: The present study was carried out to evaluate the therapeutic action of adapalene 0.1% gel and its tolerability in the treatment of mild to moderate acne vulgaris in patients living in Brazil. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients applied the gel at night for 12 weeks; and were evaluated regarding the efficacy and tolerability of the product according to the number of lesions observed at each of the 2-week and 12-week visits. RESULTS: Out of 125 patients, 81.6% completed 12 weeks of therapy and 10.4% of the cases left the study before week 12 because they were found to be lesion-free. Results allow us to confirm its effect upon keratinocyte cellular differentiation with antiinflammatory and antiproliferative properties. Adapalene induces a marked decrease in comedos and inflammatory lesions. Mild adverse events were reported in less than 10% of patients. CONCLUSION: Adapalene has been shown to be one of the best topical therapies for mild or moderate acne both in the present study and in previous studies.

    Flaubert's Emma Bovary is one of the most convincingly realized characters in modern literature. Her husband, Charles, a rural doctor, loves her dearly, but he is dull, ineffectual, and boring. Emma seems to hate him with a fury that knows no bounds. She betrays him sexually, ruins him financially, and ultimately destroys his very life. What drives her to such unmitigated rage? The authors identify evidence in the novel suggestive of a dynamic thrust for revenge along the lines described by Freud (1918) in "The Taboo of Virginity." Elements of narcissistic rage and a sense of entitlement intensify Emma's anger and vengefulness.

    Emma is one of the most successful novels by Jane Austen. This thesis analyzed the background of its heroine Emma ’s growth background, her growth from conceit, snobbery, domination to maturity, and the causes of her character transformation. Her psychological growth process from innocence to maturity demonstrates women ’s growth and progress in the early 19th cen-tury, and inspires modern women to gradually improve in personality and better present their charms of maturity.

    《包法利夫人》中艾玛因母性意识的缺失及时母爱情感的拒斥成为不合格的母亲.这种母性意识的反常所包含的女性自由与性别抗争成分是有限和含混的,这与其独具的个性气质及心理效应密切相关,与其母性意识生成环境的残缺及其心灵的浅陋有关,也与当时男权社会的特定情境密不可分.

    英国哈代与中国苏轼以同样细腻的笔触表达了对亡妻的思念之情,由于东西方文化的差异,两人的悼亡诗各有千秋.哈代的悼亡诗着重的是思,或幻想、或反思;苏轼的悼亡词着重的是一种感伤的思念,对日常生活的追忆.比较哈代的几首"爱玛组诗"与苏轼的,可以认识到造成两人悼亡诗差异的文化根源.

    A comparative study was undertaken on the leaves of eight Uvaria, threeCyathostemma and one Ellipeia species in order to investigate interspecific anatomicaldifferences which could be useful in species identification and their taxonomic significance.Anatomical characters that are of significance are terminal sclereids, druses in epidermalcells, trichomes, brachysclereids in parenchymatous tissues of midribs and petioles, and theshape of midribs and petioles in transverse sections. Certain features are present in certainspecies only and are thus useful for species identification. The results also show that thethree genera are quite closely related.%对紫玉盘属8种,杯冠木属3种和Ellipeia属1种进行了叶的比较研究,以调查不同种之间解剖学的不同点,这对种的鉴别和了解它们的分类学意义可能是有用的.有意义的解剖学特征是:末端石细胞,表皮细胞的晶簇,毛状体,在中脉和叶柄的薄壁组织内的短石细胞以及中脉和叶柄横切面的形状.有某些特征仅出现在某些种中,这对种的鉴别是有用的.结果亦显示这三个属的联系十分紧密.

    The laboratory mouse is the premier animal model for studying human disease and thousands of mutants have been identified or produced, most recently through gene-specific mutagenesis approaches. High throughput strategies by the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) are producing mutants for all protein coding genes. Generating a knock-out line involves huge monetary and time costs so capture of both the data describing each mutant alongside archiving of the line for distribution to future researchers is critical. The European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) is a leading international network infrastructure for archiving and worldwide provision of mouse mutant strains. It operates in collaboration with the other members of the Federation of International Mouse Resources (FIMRe), EMMA being the European component. Additionally EMMA is one of four repositories involved in the IKMC, and therefore the current figure of 1700 archived lines will rise markedly. The EMMA database gathers and curates extensive data on each line and presents it through a user-friendly website. A BioMart interface allows advanced searching including integrated querying with other resources e.g. Ensembl. Other resources are able to display EMMA data by accessing our Distributed Annotation System server. EMMA database access is publicly available at http://www.emmanet.org. PMID:19783817

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTOS: Muitos pacientes relatam melhora da acne com a exposição à luz solar, e vários estudos demonstram que a luz azul é efetiva no tratamento da acne. OBJETIVOS: Verificar a segurança e a eficácia da luz azul (espectro eletromagnético de 407 a 420 nm no tratamento da acne inflamatória graus II e III, comparada à terapêutica tópica com peróxido de benzoíla a 5%. MÉTODOS: O estudo avaliou 60 pacientes em cinco visitas: uma de seleção, uma com 7, 14 e 28 dias de tratamento e uma última de seguimento, 14 dias após o término do tratamento. Trinta foram randomizados para luz azul (oito sessões, duas vezes por semana, e outros 30, para peróxido de benzoíla a 5%, duas vezes ao dia, diariamente. A avaliação foi por meio da contagem das lesões e fotografias. RESULTADOS: A redução no número médio de lesões foi semelhante com os dois tratamentos, independente do tipo de lesão (p 0,05, porém o tratamento com a luz azul apresentou menos efeitos colaterais. CONCLUSÕES: A luz azul foi um tratamento tão eficaz quanto o peróxido de benzoíla a 5% para o tratamento da acne graus II e III, mas com menos efeitos adversos.BACKGROUND: Many acne patients improve after exposure to sunlight and there are many reports about the efficacy of blue light phototherapy on acne lesions. OBJECTIVES - The purpose of this study was to evaluate efficacy and safety of blue light treatment versus topical benzoyl peroxide 5% formulation in patients with acne grades II and III. METHODS - Sixty volunteers with facial acne were included and evaluated in 5 visits: the first one for screening, another 3 held on days 7, 14 and 28 of treatment, and the last one after 14 days of the end of treatment. Thirty of them were irradiated with Blue Light (8 times, twice a week and the other thirty were treated with topical Benzoyl Peroxide 5% formulation, auto-applied twice a day, every day. We assessed the severity of acne by counting the lesions and analyzing the photographs. RESULTS - The improvement achieved by the blue light was the same as the one with benzoyl peroxide, regardless of the type of lesion (p 0.05. Otherwise, the side effects were less frequent in the group treated with blue light. CONCLUSIONS - Blue light irradiation was as effective as Benzoyl Peroxide in acne treatment grades II and III but there were fewer side effects.

    Full Text Available As IVAS em crianças e adultos são os motivos mais freqüentes de consulta médica e os que mais demandam o uso de antibióticos. A crescente resistência bacteriana causada pela produção das beta-lactamases constitui um dos mais sérios problemas atuais. A Sultamicilina é uma pró-droga dupla da ampicilina e do sulbactam, um potente inibidor de beta-lactamases que pode fazer frente a estas dificuldades. OBJETIVO: avaliar a eficácia, segurança e tolerabilidade da Ampicilina/Sulbactan comparada à Amoxacilina/Ácido Clavulânico no tratamento de IVAS, em adultos. METODOLOGIA: 102 pacientes com diagnóstico de IVAS foram randomizados em dois grupos recebendo Ampicilina/Sulbactan ou Amoxacilina/Clavulanato por 10 dias. Foram avaliados 10 e 30 dias após para análise da resposta terapêutica. RESULTADOS: Não houve diferença entre os grupos com relação à proporção de pacientes curados ao final do tratamento (visita 2 ou do estudo (visita 3. No grupo que recebeu Amoxacilina/Clavulanato, as proporções de cura foram de 61.7% e 93.2% nas visitas 2 e 3, comparadas a 64.4% e 97.4%, respectivamente, no grupo que recebeu Ampicilina/Sulbactan. A proporção de pacientes que experimentou pelo menos um evento adverso foi semelhante nos dois grupos (p = 0.940. A diarréia foi significativamente mais freqüente no grupo Amoxacilina-Clavulanato (70.6% do que no grupo Ampicilina/Sulbactan (29.4%, (p=0.0164. CONCLUSÕES: A Ampicilina/Sulbactan é tão segura e eficaz quanto a Amoxacilina/Clavulanato no tratamento empírico de IVAS em adultos. A ocorrência significativamente menor de quadros de diarréia no grupo recebendo Ampicilina/Sulbactan necessita confirmação em estudos posteriores.Upper respiratory tract infections are the most common causes of medical visits in children and adults, demanding massive use of antibiotics. Bacterial resistance caused by beta-lactamase is one of the most serious problems in this matter. Sultamicillin, a double pro-drug of Ampicillin/Sulbactan, is a potent beta-lactamase inhibitor which can face this challenge. AIM: evaluate efficacy, safety and tolerability of Ampicillin/Sulbactan compared to Amoxicillin/Clavulanate in upper respiratory tract infections in adults. METHODS: 102 patients were enrolled and randomized to receive Ampicillin/Sulbactan or Amoxicillin/Clavulanate during 10 days. They were evaluated 10 and 30 days after treatment to learn about the therapeutic response. RESULTS: There were no differences between the two groups respecting cure at the end of treatment (visit 2 or at the end of the study (visit 3. Cure ratio was 61.7% and 93.2% (visits 2 and 3 in the Amoxicillin/Clavulanate group compared to 64.4% and 97.4%, respectively, in Ampicillin/Sulbactan group. The adverse events ratio for the two groups was the same (p=0.940. The number of patients with diarrhea was greater in the group of patients receiving Amoxicillin/Clavulanate (70.6% than in the group receiving Ampicillin/Sulbactan (29.4% (p=0.0164. CONCLUSIONS: Ampicillin/Sulbactan is as safe and efficient as Amoxicillin/Clavulanate in the empiric treatment of upper respiratory infections in adults. The low occurrence of diarrhea in the group receiving Ampicillin/Sulbactan needs confirmation in other studies.

    When Pat Goldman-Rakic described the circuitry and function of primate prefrontal cortex in her influential 1987 monograph (Goldman-Rakic, 1987), she included only a few short paragraphs on the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC). That year, there were only nine papers published containing the term “orbitofrontal,” an average of less than one paper per month. Twenty years later, this rate has increased to 32 papers per month.

    How do you make a pop-up Big Bang? Well it seems that many of you out there have an opinion on this somewhat esoteric question. When Emma Sanders, co-author of ATLAS’ new pop-up book carried out an informal survey amongst physicists, the question provoked some strong reactions. Paper engineer Anton Radevsky in animated discussion with ATLAS’ Philippe Farthouat and Christoph Rembser. Too spiky: an early version of the pop-up Big Bang."The challenge with the design of every pop-up was to find a solution that both looked good and was scientifically correct," explains Emma. "This was particularly difficult for the Big Bang, where the expansion of the Universe had to be spherically symmetrical and not spiky!" Over 8 pages, the story of ATLAS and the LHC unfolds, pops up, rotates, and, in some cases, readers even have to get hands-on and build elements themselves. Emma worked on the project with...

    2002-01-01

    The process by which Gustave Flaubert created the character of Emma Bovary is examined, as are various of the author's sources for the heroine and their transformation in the course of composing the novel. Certain aspects of the authors psychic makeup, including his bisexuality, are discussed in this light, as are Flaubert's early traumatic losses and their influence on his way of working. Finally, it is suggested that writing had multiple functions for the author and that the creation of Emma Bovary served as a partial solution to unmet needs.

That year, there were only nine papers published containing the term "orbitofrontal," an average of less than one paper per month. Twenty years later, this rate has increased to 32 papers per month. This explosive growth is partly attributable to the remarkable similarities that exist in structure and function across species. These similarities suggest that OFC function can be usefully modeled in nonhuman and even nonprimate species. Here, we review some of these similarities.

Many of the favorable and unfavorable conditions are nearly the same. It seems reasonable for the Goldman & Sachs to put the four countries together and coin a new word. But obviously Goldman & Sachs Co. regards the BRICs as a new group in the international arena; it is also true for the West media and some analysts in particular. Next, let us discuss whether Brazil, Russia, India and China could form a group, or is it possible for them to form an international political and economic group that takes concerted action?

    Multiple myeloma remains treatable but incurable. Despite a growing armamentarium of effective agents, choice of therapy, especially in relapse, still relies almost exclusively on clinical acumen. We have developed a system, Ex vivo Mathematical Myeloma Advisor (EMMA), consisting of patient-specific mathematical models parameterized by an ex vivo assay that reverse engineers the intensity and heterogeneity of chemosensitivity of primary cells from multiple myeloma patients, allowing us to predict clinical response to up to 31 drugs within 5 days after bone marrow biopsy. From a cohort of 52 multiple myeloma patients, EMMA correctly classified 96% as responders/nonresponders and correctly classified 79% according to International Myeloma Working Group stratification of level of response. We also observed a significant correlation between predicted and actual tumor burden measurements (Pearson r = 0.5658, P multiple myeloma patient samples, yielded consistent results with recent phase I/II trials, suggesting that EMMA is a feasible platform for estimating clinical efficacy of drugs and inclusion criteria screening. This unique platform, specifically designed to predict therapeutic response in multiple myeloma patients within a clinically actionable time frame, has shown high predictive accuracy in patients treated with combinations of different classes of drugs. The accuracy, reproducibility, short turnaround time, and high-throughput potential of this platform demonstrate EMMA's promise as a decision support system for therapeutic management of multiple myeloma.

A wide range of end-tidal carbon dioxide values were...... obtained during inhalation of carbon dioxide and voluntary hyperventilation. The median IQR [range] difference between all sets of carbon dioxide values (EMMA - reference) was -0.3 (-0.6 to 0.0 [-1.7 to 1.6] kPa; n = 297) using new batteries, which was statistically significant (p = 0.04) and located...... to two of the nine EMMAs tested. Using batteries with reduced voltage did not influence the measurements. The 95% CI of the medians of the differences were -0.4 to -0.2.

  19. Fate and Transport of Nitrate in an Alpine Catchment Based on Dual-Isotopic and End-Member Mixing Analysis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Williams, M. W.; Liu, F.; Kendall, C.

    2003-12-01

    Attempts to understand nitrate loss from small watersheds have been the focus of much research. In general, these results have shown that understanding how sources and flowpaths of nitrate-rich waters change with time necessitates a combination of isotopic, chemical, and hydrometric data. New and evolving tools to understand the fate and transport of nitrate include dual-isotopic analysis of both the nitrogen and oxygen atoms in the nitrate molecule, and end-member mixing analysis (EMMA). However, to-date no one has combined these two approaches. Here we present results from both dual-isotope analysis and EMMA to understand the fate and transport of nitrate in the high-elevation Green Lakes watershed of the Colorado Front Range. Thirty-five samples were collected and analyzed for the dual isotopes of nitrate, and showed that values of δ 18O in atmospheric deposition had considerable overlap with values in stream waters. There was a strong counterclockwise pattern of hysteresis when δ 18O is plotted versus stream discharge, consistent with a mixture of atmospheric and microbial nitrate sources on the rising limb of the hydrograph, then mostly a microbial source on the recession limb of the hydrograph. A chemograph of nitrate sources developed using EMMA shows atmospheric deposition the predominant source at the initiation of snowmelt runoff, with soil water and talus becoming the dominant source at peak runoff, and talus-water and baseflow both important on the recession limb of the hydrograph. We were able to qualitatively evaluate the EMMA results by developing a 2-component nitrate source model using the dual-isotope values. The dual-isotope mixing model agreed well with the atmospheric and subsurface sources of nitrate identified using EMMA.

Inductive content analysis was performed to extract data.Principal findings: Participants rated ten of 17 general attributes as clearly applicable to the e-MMA and five as unsuitable. Attributes pertained to three interrelating themes: product design, patient support, and living conditions. Envisaged target groups were patients with time-sensitive medication regimens, patients with dementia, the visually impaired, and several patients living together to prevent accidental intake of the wrong medication.Conclusion: The evaluated e-MMA for prepackaged polypharmacy met the majority of the requirements set for an MMA. Patients' living conditions, such as mobility, remain the key determinants for acceptance of an e-MMA.Keywords: pharmaceutical care, medication adherence, medication management aids, automated drug dispensing

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luke Bouvier

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available Des études récentes ont mis en lumière le « désordre temporel » d’Emma Bovary, son étrange inaptitude à produire un événement dans sa vie ou à intégrer le temps dans son expérience. Une scène clé à cet égard est celle où, curieusement, Emma échoue à pleurer la mort de sa mère alors même qu’elle met en place tout un rituel romantique du chagrin qui n’aboutit qu’à l’indifférence et à l’ennui. Élaborée à partir d’un schéma psychanalytique assez vaste qui englobe les dernières recherches sur le traumatisme et l’addiction, cette étude montre que cette scène est symptomatique d’une incapacité plus large à assimiler la perte, qui se manifeste à travers les problèmes d’ennui et d’addiction, ainsi que par l’incapacité générale d’Emma à s’orienter par rapport au passé. Les implications linguistiques de ce problème sont particulièrement importantes : un tel trouble temporel lié à un défaut de deuil peut en effet être lu précisément à travers les perturbations du langage qui en résultent. Dans la figure étrange et indéchiffrable de la mère Rollet, par exemple, on peut discerner l’aventure cryptique du langage qui se produit à partir du problème de la perte mal assimilée, la conspiration de mots qui conduit Emma au suicide par la mise en place de retours équivoques du signifiant. En dernier ressort, si l’échec d’Emma à faire le deuil de sa mère est révélateur d’une certaine inaptitude à faire le deuil du temps lui-même, cette scène initiale marque aussi l’incapacité ou le refus d’Emma de faire son deuil d’une esthétique morte. Quand Emma satisfait son goût pour l’imagerie romantique en écoutant « tous les chants de cygnes mourants », ce qu’elle n’entend pas est précisément le caractère stéréotypé et dégradé d’une telle imagerie, l’équivoque romantique se manifestant à travers un champ de signes mourants.Recent studies

  19. A further excavation of seduction, seduction trauma, and the seduction theory.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Blum, Harold P

    2008-01-01

    Freud's pre-analytic concept of seduction trauma was interwoven with the emerging concepts of an unconscious pathogenic past, repression, and reconstruction. The formulation of this theory of neurosogenesis involved important current, as well as past, determinants. Freud was psychologically seduced by Fliess and unwittingly colluded in the nearly fatal surgery Fliess performed on Emma Eckstein. The formulation and subsequent repudiation of the seduction theory approximated the period from the traumatic experience of Freud with his patient Emma Eckstein to her apparent recovery. Freud's seduction theory, with its focus on childhood sexual abuse, simultaneously defended against both aggression and the current traumatic situation. Defenses against aggression were intensified in an atmosphere of virulent anti-Semitism. The seduction theory is relevant to contemporary issues concerning psychic trauma, psychic reality and objective reality, memory, and reconstruction.

    Jane Burns, Emma Birrell Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre, Abbotsford, VIC, Australia Abstract: International studies have shown that the prevalence of mental illness, and the fundamental contribution it make to the overall disease burden, is greatest in children and young people. Despite this high burden, adolescents and young adults are the least likely population group to seek help or to access professional care for mental health problems. This issue is particularly problematic ...

    Neonatal sepsis remains an important clinical syndrome despite advances in neonatology. Current hematology analyzers can determine cell volume (V), conductivity for internal composition of cell (C) and light scatter for cytoplasmic granularity and nuclear structure (S), and standard deviations which are effective in the diagnosis of sepsis. Statistical models can be used to strengthen the diagnosis. Effective modeling of molecular activity (EMMA) uses combinatorial algorithm of the selection parameters for regression equation based on modified stepwise procedure. It allows obtaining different regression models with different combinations of parameters. We investigated these parameters in screening of neonatal sepsis. We used LH780 hematological analyzer (Beckman Coulter, Fullerton, CA, USA). We combined these parameters with interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-reactive protein (CRP) and developed models by EMMA. A total of 304 newborns, 76 proven sepsis, 130 clinical sepsis and 98 controls, were enrolled in the study. Mean neutrophil volume (MNV) and volume distribution width (VDW) were higher in both proven and clinical sepsis groups. We developed three models using MNV, VDW, IL-6, and CRP. These models gave more sensitivity and specificity than the usage of each marker alone. We suggest to use the combination of MNV and VDW with markers such as CRP and IL-6, and use diagnostic models created by EMMA. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
