  4. A European Res publica

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ola Zetterquist

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available The article analyses the fundamental constitutional enigma of the European Union (EU, namely whether the EU can be considered as a (from its Member States separate and independent constitutional legal order. The EU is often referred to as a legal order sui generis, i.e. of a unique character that defies traditional definitions. More specifically, the notion of an independent and separate EU is at odds with the idea of the sovereign state. The notion of the EU as a legal order sui generis is too much influenced by the models of the sovereign state and sovereignty (in the vein of Thomas Hobbes. The key component in the Hobbesian idea of sovereignty is freedom as non-interference. A sovereign state is consequently a state that is free from, i.e. not interfered with by, external actors like, for example, the EU. Put differently, either the EU is sovereign or the Member States are sovereign. By shifting the perspective to a neo-Roman republican understanding of freedom as non-domination the constitutional picture of the EU will become more nuanced. Res publica is best understood as what citizens hold in common and above their narrow self-interest. According to a republican notion of the constitution the purpose of the law is to eliminate the possibility of arbitrary domination. For that reason, not all interference is to be considered as a restriction of freedom but only those restrictions that cannot be justified according to the res publica. Viewed through the republican prism it can be argued that the EU represents an important advancement in securing freedom as non-domination without implying that the EU must become a state. The fundamental enigma can thus be rephrased as a clash between two diverging concepts of freedom. Whereas the EU will always be at odds with the idea of sovereignty (however framed it will be much easier to reconcile with the republican ideal.

    "De re publica otorhinolaryngologica" is the title of the article by Ante Sercer published in Lijecnicki vjesnik in 1941, five years after the moving of the Ear, Nose and Throat Department to Salata. In this paper he elaborated his conception of a modern ENT department, and presented what had been done in this regard. Professor Dragutin Masek had a special merit in founding the Department in 1921, and stayed at its head till 1929. His successor prompted its moving from the building of elementary school in Draskovićeva Street to Salata, where other departments of the School of Medicine in Zagreb were situated. At the beginning of the 20th century, the issue of the construction of a territorial hospital which would serve as the University Hospital of the future School of Medicine emerged. Our ancestors showed great enthusiasm in overcoming the obstacles to the construction of the University Hospital in Salata. We chose only a small number of important facts by which we tried to demonstrate of the Department in the period in which the heads after D. Masek and A. Sercer were Branimir Gusić and Zvonimir Krajina. The most important current activities of the Department are further briefly described. Although the Department developed the programs which naturally follow from the respectable history, in agreement with creative potentials of its employees, and professional and scientific standards within the European Union, for the third time in the modem history we had to resists the unacceptable moving into restricted and unfavorable settings at the other location. Recently, plans of building the "eastern comb" on Rebro, and the moving of the Department to Rebro, have been offered. On several occasions the council of our Department gave negative evaluation of these plans and suggested solutions when the project became available "post hoc". Modest investments at the present location would provide the Department with a part of necessary conditions for further continuing

    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. Keywords: Open access, high dilution, online serial.   Publicações de acesso aberto: o caso da pesquisa em altas diluições Resumo A publicação de acesso aberto parece ser o novo paradigma em publicação científica, representando uma tendência crescente em todos os segmentos da sociedade.

    Full Text Available Cet article traite de l’inégalité d’accès aux services publics urbains dans les pays en développement et, plus particulièrement, de la question de l’accès au service d’enlèvement des ordures ménagères à Abidjan. Cette question est étroitement liée au mouvement de centralisation, décentralisation et recentralisation qui a affecté la gestion de ce service au cours des dernières décennies. Chaque étape de l’avancée de la Côte d’Ivoire dans le processus de décentralisation a provoqué des changements institutionnels dans la gestion des ordures ménagères à Abidjan ; tous ont eu des effets spécifiques sur l’accès de la population à ce service. Ces effets sont étudiés à l’échelle des communes et des quartiers à travers une enquête de terrain, et sont liés aux caractéristiques socio-économiques des quartiers. Une analyse comparative entre deux communes de standing opposé, ainsi que l’examen des aspects historiques de la problématique, s’attachent à identifier les facteurs-clés d’une telle inégalité d’accès au service d’enlèvement des ordures ménagères à Abidjan.This paper deals with the inequality of access to the urban public utilities in developing countries, and more accurately with the issue of the access to the waste collection in Abidjan. This question is closely linked with the centralization, decentralization and recentralization movements that affected this service management for the last decades. Each stage of the decentralization process in Ivory Coast brought institutional changes in waste collection management in Abidjan. Each of them had specific consequences on the access of people to this service. These consequences are investigated on a local scale and are linked to the socio-economic characteristics of the studied areas. Together with the focus on the historical aspects of the problematic, a comparative analysis between two districts of opposite standing attempts

    On July 14, 2015, ProPublica published its Surgeon Scorecard, which displays "Adjusted Complication Rates" for individual, named surgeons for eight surgical procedures performed in hospitals. Public reports of provider performance have the potential to improve the quality of health care that patients receive. A valid performance report can drive quality improvement and usefully inform patients' choices of providers. However, performance reports with poor validity and reliability are potentially damaging to all involved. This article critiques the methods underlying the Scorecard and identifies opportunities for improvement. Until these opportunities are addressed, the authors advise users of the Scorecard-most notably, patients who might be choosing their surgeons-not to consider the Scorecard a valid or reliable predictor of the health outcomes any individual surgeon is likely to provide. The authors hope that this methodological critique will contribute to the development of more-valid and more-reliable performance reports in the future.

    In the summer of 2015, ProPublica published its Surgeon Scorecard, which displays "Adjusted Complication Rates" for individual, named surgeons for eight surgical procedures performed in hospitals. Public reports of provider performance have the potential to improve the quality of health care that patients receive. A valid performance report can drive quality improvement and usefully inform patients' choices of providers. However, performance reports with poor validity and reliability are potentially damaging to all involved. In September 2015, RAND released a critique of the Scorecard authored by a group of health policy researchers from RAND and other institutions, and on October 7, 2015 ProPublica published a rebuttal of our critique. In this follow-on Perspective, we revisit the main points in our initial critique, summarize ProPublica's rebuttal, explain why this rebuttal fails to address our methodological concerns, provide suggestions on how to validate and improve the Scorecard, and explain why we continue to advise potential users of the Scorecard, as it is currently constructed, not to consider it a valid or reliable predictor of the health outcomes any individual surgeon is likely to provide.

  10. A indústria de publicação contra o acesso aberto

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kenneth Rochel de Camargo Jr

    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.

    The rapid deployment of renewable sources of electricity (RES-E) is transforming power systems globally. This trend is likely to continue with large increases in investment and deployment of RES-E capacity over the coming decades. Several countries now have penetration levels of variable RES-E generation (i.e., wind and solar) in excess of 15% of their annual electricity generation; and many jurisdictions (e.g., Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Germany, and Denmark; and, in the United States, Colorado) have experienced instantaneous penetration levels of more than 50% variable generation.1 These penetration levels of variable RES-E have prompted many jurisdictions to begin modifying practices that evolved in an era of readily dispatchable, centralised power systems. Providing insights for the transition to high levels of variable RES-E generation is the focus of this document, which is the final report of the RES-E-NEXT project commissioned by the International Energy Agency’s implementing agreement on Renewable Energy Technology Deployment (IEA-RETD). It presents a comprehensive assessment of issues that will shape power system evolution during the transition to high levels of variable RES-E generation. While policy will be a central tool to sustain the growth of RES-E capacity and to enable power system transitions, the scope of the report extends beyond policy considerations to include the related domains of regulation, power market design, and system operation protocols. This broad scope is in recognition that a changing resource mix with greater penetration levels of variable RES-E has broad implications for grid operations, wholesale and retail power markets, and infrastructure needs. The next decade will be a critical transition period for power system stakeholders, as global deployment of RES-E capacity (and especially variable RES-E capacity) continues to scale-up in many regions of the world. To address increased penetration levels of RES-E in power systems

    Full Text Available EI objetivo del presente artículo es presentar una nueva propuesta en materia de transporte urbano, teniendo en cuenta el cada vez más restringido uso del automóvil particular y la ineficiencia de los actuales médicos de transporte público. En la primera parte del trabajo se presenta un panorama general de la importancia de los sistemas de transporte en las ciudades y cómo afectan la vida de sus habitantes. También se muestra la situación actual del transite en Bogotá y la necesidad de implantar sistemas alternativos de transporte. En la segunda parte, se propone el diseño de un sistema en línea de alquiler de bicicletas denominado Bicicleta Publica, que sea parte integral del Sistema integrado de transporte para Santafé de Bogotá. Para cumplir con este propósito se presentan los lineamientos generales mediante un plan de negocios, que conduzca a la creación de una empresa que administre el sistema y los servicios conexos. EI plan de negocios pretende cubrir la mayor parte de la ciudad, ubicando estaciones de bicicleta publica en diferentes lugares, principalmente en las áreas de influencia de las universidades, parques, centros comerciales y, en un futuro, en las estaciones de Transmilenio y el Metro. Esto le brinda al usuario la posibilidad de tomar una bicicleta en un punto determinado y retornarla en otra estación diferente a donde la alquiló inicialmente. Las ventajas de este mecanismo son apreciables, ya que no representa complicación alguna para el usuario debido a que puede usar la bicicleta el tiempo deseado sin preocuparse por aspectos tales como el estacionamiento, el clima o las diferentes actividades, para lo cual la bicicleta propia sería un completo inconveniente.

Neste cenário, no qual sobram palavras e faltam atitudes, refletir, debater e concretizar ações sobre este tema na publicação científica tornam-se imprescindíveis. O acesso aberto e a democratização do conhecimento e, principalmente, da informa-ção, têm permitido atualmente uma possibilidade fabulosa de avanços na formação de pesquisadores e cidadãos.Neste contexto, a cultura do plágio tem maiores condições de se disseminar e de se tornar socialmente aceita. Isto faz com que instituições e editores de revistas científicas sejam colocados em situações que exigem atitudes imediatas e coerentes com os princípios éti-cos do campo da ciência. Em uma rápida busca no Google do termo “plágio em publicação científica”, encontramos cerca de 400 mil resultados, o que evidencia os danos e riscos que dizem respeito a todos nós: editores, pesquisadores, alunos, gestores de instituições de pesquisa — corresponsáveis pela acuidade da informação — e leitores.

    In the Cadarache nuclear research centre the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) operates, with the support of TECHNICATOME as nuclear operator, the experimental facilities which are necessary for the French naval propulsion program. Since the sixties these facilities have brought a large contribution to the development and to the technical support for the nuclear propulsion; they have been used also to train the French Navy operators. The last experimental reactor, the RNG, is now at the end of its life cycle after thirty years of a profitable operation. A replacement reactor is needed to sustain any evolution of the naval propulsion reactors as well as to guarantee a safe operation and a high level of availability of the existing onboard reactors. The aim of the RES program is namely to build such a test facility. Its construction program started in 2003. By the year 2009 the RES reactor will take over the mission of the RNG. We present hereafter: - A brief history of the French experimental reactors built in support to the naval propulsion, - The needs of the naval propulsion and the related objectives of the RES program, - The corresponding architecture and main characteristics of the RES facility, - The current status of the RES construction. The contents of the paper is as follows: 1. Introduction; 2. History of the French nuclear propulsion experimental reactors; 3. Needs of the naval propulsion and related objectives of the RES reactor; 4. RES architecture and main characteristics; 4.1. The pool module; 4.2. The reactor module; 4.3. The RES reactor, an innovative concept; 5. Realisation status; 6. Conclusion. To summarize, from the year 2009 the RES will be an efficient facility available for irradiation and qualification programs. Its large experimental capabilities will allow relevant fuel and core irradiations. This will give access to a real progress in the knowledge of fuel and core physics as well as in the related simulation tools. This reactor

    INTRODUCTION : Des milliers de personnes souffrent actuellement de douleur chronique (DC) pour laquelle la prise en charge s’avère souvent inadéquate. Au Québec, les infirmières qui oeuvrent dans les Groupes de médecine de famille (GMF) jouent un rôle clé dans le suivi des personnes aux prises avec des problèmes de santé chroniques dont la DC. OBJECTIFS : Cette étude a pour objectifs de décrire les activités réalisées par les infirmières œuvrant en GMF en lien avec la gestion de la douleur chez la clientèle souffrant de DC, ainsi que les barrières à ces activités. MÉTHODE : Un dispositif descriptif corrélationnel transversal de type enquête postale a été utilisé. La population accessible à l’étude comprend les infirmières qui figurent sur la liste des membres de l’Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec travaillant en GMF. L’ensemble des infirmières figurant sur cette liste ayant consenti à être contactées à leur domicile pour des fins de recherche ont été contactées. Un questionnaire postal auto-administré (Pain Management Activities Questionnaire) a été complété par 53 infirmières travaillant en GMF. RÉSULTATS : Les trois activités le plus souvent réalisées par les infirmières sont d’établir une relation thérapeutique avec le client; de discuter avec le médecin de l’efficacité des mesures thérapeutiques et de faire un enseignement personnalisé au client. Les infirmières ont la perception qu’elles rencontrent en moyenne 2,68 personnes par semaine qui souffrent de DC. La méconnaissance des interventions possibles en douleur (71,7%) et la non-disponibilité de l’information sur la gestion de la douleur (52,8%) constituent les principales barrières selon les infirmières sondées. CONCLUSION : Les infirmières au sein des GMF font actuellement peu d’activités en gestion de la DC probablement en raison du manque de reconnaissance de la DC. PMID:25848847

A mudança da cultura da publicação para a da publicação com proteção do conhecimento é recente no país, tanto por parte das empresas, dos institutos de pesquisa, das universidades como das agências de fomento à pesquisa. Os pesquisadores devem-se conscientizar da necessidade de proteção do conhecimento e as agências de fomento considerar, como critérios de avaliação de produtividade científica, um peso mais equilibrado entre as publicações científicas, os resultados patenteáveis e o know how.The main purpose of a study is its publication on a scientific journal.

Os doutores foram os que mais publicaram com enfermeiras e as áreas com maior número de artigos: educação em saúde e enfermagem, saúde do adulto e idoso. Concluiu-se que as enfermeiras têm maior facilidade em publicar em grupos de pesquisas e que ao assumirem a prática, mesmo depois de pós-graduação, não mantêm a produção científica. Há necessidade de maior empenho de toda a categoria profissional para ampliar essa participação em periódicos.

  5. Electroluminescence from indirect band gap semiconductor ReS2

    Gutiérrez-Lezama, Ignacio; Aditya Reddy, Bojja; Ubrig, Nicolas; Morpurgo, Alberto F.

    2016-12-01

    It has been recently claimed that bulk crystals of transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) ReS2 are direct band gap semiconductors, which would make this material an ideal candidate, among all TMDs, for the realization of efficient opto-electronic devices. The situation is however unclear, because even more recently an indirect transition in the PL spectra of this material has been detected, whose energy is smaller than the supposed direct gap. To address this issue we exploit the properties of ionic liquid gated field-effect transistors (FETs) to investigate the gap structure of bulk ReS2. Using these devices, whose high quality is demonstrated by a record high electron FET mobility of 1100 cm2 V-1 s-1 at 4 K, we can induce hole transport at the surface of the material and determine quantitatively the smallest band gap present in the material, irrespective of its direct or indirect nature. The value of the band gap is found to be 1.41 eV, smaller than the 1.5 eV direct optical transition but in good agreement with the energy of the indirect optical transition, providing an independent confirmation that bulk ReS2 is an indirect band gap semiconductor. Nevertheless, contrary to the case of more commonly studied semiconducting TMDs (e.g., MoS2, WS2, etc) in their bulk form, we also find that ReS2 FETs fabricated on bulk crystals do exhibit electroluminescence when driven in the ambipolar injection regime, likely because the difference between direct and indirect gap is only 100 meV. We conclude that ReS2 does deserve more in-depth investigations in relation to possible opto-electronic applications.

Ao seguir a polêmica entre dinheiro e dom, que está no centro das discussões da antropologia e da sociologia, enfoco duas questões: a o papel do dinheiro para demarcar os limites entre as "transações mercantis" e as "circulações de dons"; b a relação entre dinheiro e moral. O trabalho de campo consistiu em uma etnografia das transações entre os vendedores e os compradores desta publicação.Based on a case study of an organization responsible for publishing a magazine sold to ‘homeless’ people in Buenos Aires, I examine the social uses of money in philanthropic circles. Turning to the polemic between money and gift at the centre of discussions in anthropology and sociology, I focus on two questions: a the role of money in demarcating the limits between ‘market transactions’ and ‘gift circulations’; b the relation between money and morality. Fieldwork involved an ethnographic study of the transactions between the sellers and buyers of this publication.

    The purpose of this article is to analyse gender relations in equestrianism from the beginning of the 19th to the first decades of the 20th century. Focus will be on the female horse riding circus artists, the écuyères. The fact that women were circus riders at this time is interesting as in many...... masculinity and horsemanship conveys the impression that women had nothing to do with horses. This is true for many situations. The circus arena, however, seems to have been an exception as women could perform there. At the heart of the performances was not only equestrianism, but also the notion of gender...

La priorité est donnée à l’observation, le texte s’appuyant sur une base de données nouvellement mise sur le marché de la connaissance par le Notariat de France.

D’abord, la cartographie du montant des transactions débouche sur une typologie communale qu’il s’agit d’éclairer par des variables socio-qualitatives (origine géographique des individus. La fragmentation socio-spatiale est le résultat de systèmes d’échanges de bien-fonds qui révèlent deux processus résidentiels concurrents. L’article tend à montrer comment un tri sélectif s’opère entre communes, les unes se spécialisant dans l’accueil des populations locales, les autres rejetant à leur périphérie ces mêmes populations. L’observation, à cette échelle, des transactions immobilières, signale le décalage évident qui existe entre la demande locale potentielle et l’offre accessible.

    Full Text Available O metilfenidato é um estimulante comercializado desde os anos 50 na Suíça, na Alemanha e nos EUA. Mas foi somente a partir de sua associação com o Transtorno do Déficit de Atenção e Hiperatividade (TDAH que suas vendas alavancaram, tornando-se o estimulante mais consumido no mundo. Este artigo tem por objetivo apresentar os resultados de uma análise das publicações brasileiras sobre os usos do metilfenidato no Brasil, ao longo da última década. Com isto, visa compreender como as informações são apresentadas ou omitidas nos diferentes espaços de divulgação impressa. Para tal análise, foram pesquisadas publicações científicas, nos principais periódicos de psiquiatria brasileiros, e reportagens de jornais e revistas nacionais destinados ao público em geral. A pesquisa inclui as publicações do período de 1998 a 2008. Destaca-se como ponto relevante da análise a importante participação dos laboratórios no financiamento dos grupos e pesquisas sobre TDAH. Os achados indicam que a combinação do uso do medicamento com psicoterapias, a dependência do medicamento e a ideia de que existe excesso de prescrição no Brasil são temas controversos nas publicações analisadas.Methylphenidate is frequently associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD, though this psychostimulant has been on the market in Switzerland, Germany and the US since the 1950s.

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available George Desvallières (1861-1950 took part in the 1914-18 War as battalion commander with the “Bataillon Des Vosges”, and depicted its tragic history on his return from the front. From 1883, he became a fully recognised artist with his painting being presented at all major Paris exhibitions. Founder, Vice-President, then President of the “Salon d’Automne”, he became known as a discoverer of young talents, and obtained recognition for both cubists and fauvists. At the start of the First World War, Desvallières joined up as a volunteer. Very quickly his men acknowledged him to be an unsurpassed leader, and demanded of his superiors that he be kept in his post, which was at first only a temporary appointment. Desvallières led his “chasseurs” across the Alsatian mountains for four years with determination, courage and a kindness recognised by all on the front. In March 1915, his seventeen-year- old son Daniel was killed in action a few miles away from his father. This loss affected him deeply, but thanks to his convert’s faith, he was able to sublimate this terrible ordeal. All his post-war work is centred on the theme of the soldier’s sacrifice for his country, which he assimilates to the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross. Some of his canvases are directly related to the War and to his son’s death, and his impressive wall-paintings on a similar theme made a profound impact on contemporary public opinion. The “Drapeau du Sacré-Coeur” (Banner of the Sacred Heart at the Church of Notre Dame de Verneuil (1919 was the starting point for these murals. There followed such monumental works of pictorial expression as the Saint Privat Chapel in the Gard region (1920-1925, which will be discussed in this paper, the stained-glass windows at the Douaumont Ossuary (1927, the decoration of Wittenheim Church in Alsace (1929-1931, the Chapel of the Cité Saint Yves (1931 and the Way of the Cross at the Holy Spirit Church (1935 in Paris.*

    Although serious efforts are made internationally and nationally, it is a slow process to make our physical environment accessible. In the actual design process, architects play a major role. But what kinds of knowledge, including research-based knowledge, do practicing architects make use of when...... designing accessible environments? The answer to the question is crucially important since it affects how knowledge is distributed and how accessibility can be ensured. In order to get first-hand knowledge about the design process and the sources from which they gain knowledge, 11 qualitative interviews...... were conducted with architects with experience of designing for accessibility. The analysis draws on two theoretical distinctions. The first is research-based knowledge versus knowledge used by architects. The second is context-independent knowledge versus context-dependent knowledge. The practitioners...

Both are evolution of the Zero Energy Building (ZEB) concept. RES innovations backed up by signal processing, simulation models and ICT tools were embedded into the building structures in order to implement a new predictive energy management concept. In addition, nano-coatings, produced by TiO2 and ITO nano-particles, were deposited on the IEB structural elements and especially on the window panes and the PV glass covers. They exhibited promising SSP values which lowered the cooling loads and increased the PV modules yield. Both pilot IEB units were equipped with an on-line dynamic hourly solar radiation prediction model, implemented by sensors and the related software to manage effectively the energy source, the loads and the storage or the backup system. The IEB energy sources covered the thermal loads via a south façade embedded in the wall and a solar roof which consists of a specially designed solar collector type, while a PV generator is part of the solar roof, like a compact BIPV in hybrid configuration to a small wind turbine.

    The CeREs 3U CubeSat, set to be launched in mid-2016, will study the physics of the acceleration and loss of radiation belt electrons, particularly loss due to electron microbursts. CeRES will also observe solar electrons and protons entering the magnetosphere via the open field-line polar caps. CeREs is expected to be in a low earth high inclination orbit and carries onboard the Miniaturized Electron pRoton Telescope (MERiT). The MERiT instrument measures electrons and protons ranging in energy from 5 keV to >10 MeV with high time resolution of ~5ms in multiple differential energy channels. MERiT is particle telescope using a stack of solid-state detectors and space-facing avalanche photo diodes.We will describe the CeRES spacecraft, science goals and the MERiT instrument.

    Atomically thin rhenium disulphide (ReS2) is a member of the transition metal dichalcogenide family of materials. This two-dimensional semiconductor is characterized by weak interlayer coupling and a distorted 1T structure, which leads to anisotropy in electrical and optical properties. Here we report on the electrical transport study of mono- and multilayer ReS2 with polymer electrolyte gating. We find that the conductivity of monolayer ReS2 is completely suppressed at high carrier densities, an unusual feature unique to monolayers, making ReS2 the first example of such a material. Using dual-gated devices, we can distinguish the gate-induced doping from the electrostatic disorder induced by the polymer electrolyte itself. Theoretical calculations and a transport model indicate that the observed conductivity suppression can be explained by a combination of a narrow conduction band and Anderson localization due to electrolyte-induced disorder.

    The RES, the new test reactor for naval propulsion, will replace the RNG that nears the end of its operating life after 30 years in service. The main asset of a land-based installation is to provide an in-core instrumented reactor while the on-board system must stay as simple as possible for robustness reasons. The objective of the RES is fivefold: 1) to foresee and help solving problems likely to happen on on-board reactor, 2) to validate nuclear fuels and reactor systems for naval propulsion, 3) to validate reactor system and equipment for the Barracuda submarine program, 4) to upgrade the on-ground facility located at Cadarache, and 5) to provide the Cea with a new capacity for the storing of spent fuels from naval propulsion systems and from Cea research reactors. The RES facility is made of 2 parts: one that houses the reactor and the other that is dedicated to the handling on spent fuels, their examination through a gamma spectrometry bench and their storing in a pool. The RES facility is scheduled to open in 2009. (A.C.)

O fato da revista não ter história e não ter nenhum indexador limita o número de submissões, mesmo que tenha sido amplamente divulgada. Somente autores que de fato conhecem o corpo editorial da revista depositam um voto de confiança no futuro da revista. Portanto, espera-se que no próximo ano de publicação,o número de artigos de qualidade submetidos seja grande. À medida que a revista seja indexada, em índices indicadores de impacto e visibilidade, a revista deverá ser cada vez mais procurada. A busca de indexação é, portanto, uma meta do Comitê Editorial da Ambi-Água para o futuro próximo.

    Di Marcantonio, P.; Baldini, V.; Calderone, G.; Cirami, R.; Coretti, I.; Cristiani, S.

    Starting a few years ago, ESO initiated a number of projects aiming to explore the possible adoption of industrial standards and commercial off-the-shelf components (COTS) for the control of future VLT and E-ELT instrumentations. In this context, ESPRESSO, the next generation high-stability spectrograph for the VLT and to a certain extent, a precursor of HiRes, has adopted since the preliminary design phase those solutions. Based on the ESPRESSO experience and taking into account the requirements inferred from the preliminary Hi-Res studies in terms of both high-level operations as well as low-level control, I will present in this paper the current proposal for the HiRes hardware architecture.

As Instituições de Ensino Superior (IES são importantes fontes geradoras devido à diversidade de atividades de ensino, pesquisa e extensão realizadas no seu âmbito. Os Restaurantes Escola (RE atendem à comunidade acadêmica dos campi universitários, e caracterizam-se por produzir resíduos similares aos domésticos, mas em maior quantidade. Este estudo foi realizado com o objetivo de investigar a composição gravimétrica dos resíduos produzidos em um RE de uma IES localizada no sul do país, bem como conhecer a situação atual do gerenciamento dos resíduos. Os dados foram obtidos através da caracterização dos resíduos do RE durante cinco dias, de entrevista com os gestores responsáveis pelo estabelecimento e da observação direta no local. Averiguou-se a inexistência de um Plano de Gerenciamento dos Resíduos Sólidos no RE, bem como a ausência de práticas efetivas relacionadas ao manejo destes. A segregação dos resíduos é prejudicada devido à falta de lixeiras específicas e a sobrecarga dos funcionários quanto às atividades desempenhadas. Ao longo do período experimental foram caracterizados 547,068 Kg de resíduos, dos quais mais de 80% corresponderam à matéria orgânica. Conclui-se que o montante de resíduo orgânico gerado pode ser destinado à compostagem. Recomenda-se a implantação de uma infraestrutura adequada para o manejo dos resíduos, que pode ser feita através da elaboração e aplicação de um plano de gestão integrada dos resíduos sólidos no RE.Abstract Nowadays, the amount of waste generated and its proper final destination is one of the greatest environmental issues.

    2016-05-01

    Rhenium disulfide (ReS2) is a semiconducting layered transition metal dichalcogenide that exhibits a stable distorted 1 T (Re in octahedral coordination) phase. The reduced symmetry in ReS2 leads to in-plane anisotropy in various material properties. In this work, we performed a comprehensive first-principle computational study of strain effect on the anisotropic mechanical and electronic properties of ReS2 monolayers. We found that the anisotropic ratio in electron mobility along two principle axes is 2.36 while the ratio in hole mobility reaches 7.76. The study of strain applied along different directions shows that the elastic modulus is largest for out-of-plane direction, and the strain along a-direction induces indirect bandgap while strain along b- or c-direction does not. In addition, the carrier mobility can be significantly improved by the c-direction tensile strain. This study indicates that the ReS2 monolayer has promising applications in nanoscale strain sensor and conductance-switch FETs.

    Full Text Available Abstract Introduction Many countries ravaged by conflict have substantial morbidity and mortality attributed to HIV/AIDS yet HIV treatment is uncommonly available. Universal access to HIV care cannot be achieved unless the needs of populations in conflict-affected areas are addressed. Methods From 2003 Médecins Sans Frontières introduced HIV care, including antiretroviral therapy, into 24 programmes in conflict or post-conflict settings, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. HIV care and treatment activities were usually integrated within other medical activities. Project data collected in the Fuchia software system were analysed and outcomes compared with ART-LINC data. Programme reports and other relevant documents and interviews with local and headquarters staff were used to develop lessons learned. Results In the 22 programmes where ART was initiated, more than 10,500 people were diagnosed with HIV and received medical care, and 4555 commenced antiretroviral therapy, including 348 children. Complete data were available for adults in 20 programmes (n = 4145. At analysis, 2645 (64% remained on ART, 422 (10% had died, 466 (11% lost to follow-up, 417 (10% transferred to another programme, and 195 (5% had an unclear outcome. Median 12-month mortality and loss to follow-up were 9% and 11% respectively, and median 6-month CD4 gain was 129 cells/mm 3. Patient outcomes on treatment were comparable to those in stable resource-limited settings, and individuals and communities obtained significant benefits from access to HIV treatment. Programme disruption through instability was uncommon with only one program experiencing interruption to services, and programs were adapted to allow for disruption and population movements. Integration of HIV activities strengthened other health activities contributing to health benefits for all victims of conflict and increasing the potential sustainability for implemented activities. Conclusions With commitment, simplified

    Given the mentioned circumstances, conventional energy planning in the Canary Islands is a very complex task. The Regional Energy Plan PECAN (2007-2015) tries to correct the existing critical situation setting, among others, the ambitious goal of >25% electricity from RES (mostly wind) for 2015. In parallel to this conventional energy planning, outstanding initiatives in the distributed generation field are underway. ITC vision is that the Canarian Archipelago, given its particular characteristics (insular systems of different sizes, abundant RES potential -different sources-, important natural and biodiversity heritage, etc.), are a laboratory for testing and demonstrating new energy technologies in real conditions, as well as their commercial implementation. These new technologies include energy storage (particularly for excess RES that cannot be absorbed by the grids), development of 100% energy self- sufficiency models (with exclusive use of RES) and micro-/minigrids with high RES penetration and RES forecasting, including advanced ICTs and sustainable mobility concepts (e.g. V2G technologies). Given the high conventional generation costs and the relatively low RES costs (wind electricity production cost is less than 0.03 Euro/kWh), the Canary Islands could in the short term achieve grid parity, and in this sense pioneer the change to a RES based energy system. Models tested on the islands could be exported or extrapolated to our islands, regions of developing countries and even other regions in continental Europe. (orig.)

    We report a novel humidity sensor featuring vertically oriented arrays of ReS2 nanosheets grown on an interdigitated gold electrode by chemical vapor deposition. The vertical orientation of the nanosheets is important since it maximizes the exposed surface area for water adsorption/desorption. We find that the resistance of the ReS2 film decreases sensitively with increasing relative humidity, which we attribute to charge transfer from the absorbed H2O molecules to the n-doped ReS2 nanosheets. In addition to high sensitivity, the ReS2 sensors exhibit fast response/recovery time and excellent reversibility with minimal hysteresis. Moreover, our fabrication approach involving the direct (1-step) growth of the ReS2 films on an interdigitated electrode (without any transfer using wet chemistry or lithography) greatly simplifies the device architecture and has important practical benefits for the low-cost and scalable deployment of such sensor devices.

Os resultados mostraram a concentração das publicações na região sudeste, sendo os autores, enfermeiros atuantes em instituição de ensino. Os conteúdos abordaram temas emergentes do período relacionadas à qualificação pessoal, suas implicações educacionais, legais e políticas e sobre o processo ensino aprendizagem.On reviewing the Brazilian literature between 1988-1998 about the professional education of auxiliares de enfermagem and técnicos de enfermagem, professionals that develop activities similar to those carried out by nursing aides and practical nurses, it was observed that not much is available. Considering that the workforce related to those two groups is made up of professionals whose educational level is that of high school, and that nurses are responsible for their education, we decided to review and analyze the literature related to the education of those professionals in Brazil. Findings show that papers are published mainly in the southeastern part of the country. Most authors are professionals working in educational institutions. The papers addressed issues related to personal qualification, its implications on educational, legal, and political aspects, and its impact on the teaching-learning process.

    Full Text Available L’embargo américain sur le soja en 1973, l’interdiction plus récente de l’utilisation des produits d’origine animale ou la position de la Commission européenne sur l’opportunité d’un « Plan protéine » sont autant d’éléments qui posent la question de l’autonomie protéique des cheptels de l’Union européenne. Le modèle « Prospective aliment », développé par le Cereopa afin d’analyser les stratégies d’approvisionnement en matières premières des fabricants d’aliments, révèle une augmentation de l’ordre de 40% de l’utilisation du tourteau de soja en France à l’horizon 2005, par rapport à la période novembre 1999-octobre 2000. Cette évaluation est fondée sur les résultats de modélisation de formules alimentaires et les tendances de production d’aliments composés prolongées jusqu’en 2005. Plusieurs hypothèses ont alors été testées afin d’explorer différentes voies de reconquête de l’autonomie protéique : amélioration de la compétitivité des matières premières face au soja, amélioration de leur qualité nutritionnelle ou encore développement de systèmes d’élevage permettant de réduire la dépendance au soja. Ces réductions ont été estimées pour des voies telles que le remplacement du tourteau de soja par du tourteau de colza dans les rations fabriquées à la ferme dans les élevages laitiers ou porcins (750 000 t de tourteau de soja économisables.

  14. Access Nets: Modeling Access to Physical Spaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Frohardt, Robert; Chang, Bor-Yuh Evan; Sankaranarayanan, Sriram

    Electronic, software-managed mechanisms using, for example, radio-frequency identification (RFID) cards, enable great flexibility in specifying access control policies to physical spaces. For example, access rights may vary based on time of day or could differ in normal versus emergency situations. With such fine-grained control, understanding and reasoning about what a policy permits becomes surprisingly difficult requiring knowledge of permission levels, spatial layout, and time. In this paper, we present a formal modeling framework, called AccessNets, suitable for describing a combination of access permissions, physical spaces, and temporal constraints. Furthermore, we provide evidence that model checking techniques are effective in reasoning about physical access control policies. We describe our results from a tool that uses reachability analysis to validate security policies.

    2004-09-01

    This report documents state-of-the-art methods, tools, and data for the conduct of a fire Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) for a commercial nuclear power plant (NPP) application. The methods have been developed under the Fire Risk Re-quantification Study. This study was conducted as a joint activity between EPRI and the U. S. NRC Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES) under the terms of an EPRI/RES Memorandum of Understanding [RS.1] and an accompanying Fire Research Addendum [RS.2]. Industry participants supported demonstration analyses and provided peer review of this methodology. The documented methods are intended to support future applications of Fire PRA, including risk-informed regulatory applications. The documented method reflects state-of-the-art fire risk analysis approaches. The primary objective of the Fire Risk Study was to consolidate recent research and development activities into a single state-of-the-art fire PRA analysis methodology. Methodological issues raised in past fire risk analyses, including the Individual Plant Examination of External Events (IPEEE) fire analyses, have been addressed to the extent allowed by the current state-of-the-art and the overall project scope. Methodological debates were resolved through a consensus process between experts representing both EPRI and RES. The consensus process included a provision whereby each major party (EPRI and RES) could maintain differing technical positions if consensus could not be reached. No cases were encountered where this provision was invoked. While the primary objective of the project was to consolidate existing state-of-the-art methods, in many areas, the newly documented methods represent a significant advancement over previously documented methods. In several areas, this project has, in fact, developed new methods and approaches. Such advances typically relate to areas of past methodological debate.

    Full Text Available Cells of the reticuloendothelial system (RES, e.g., macrophages play an important role in the immunopathogenesis of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS. The objective of the present study was to investigate the possibility of specifically targeting antiviral drugs Stavudine to RES (like Liver, Spleen etc. and brain using solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs as colloidal drug carriers. Various lipids like stearic acid, cetyl palmitate, glyceryl behenate and phospholipid in combination have been used and effect of lipid on properties of SLNs has been investigated. The SLNs of Stavudine were prepared by double emulsion solvent evaporation method. The diameter of SLNs was determined and found in range of 175 ± 6.027 to 393 ± 2.309 nm depending on the type of lipid used. Percentage drug entrapment was found to be influenced by the concentration and type of lipid used, which was found in the range of 18.1 to 65.2%. The drug release behavior was studied by dialysis bag method and the release pattern of drug was found to follow Higuchi model. Results of stability evaluation showed a relatively long-term stability after storage at 4°C for 1 month. Stavudine-loaded SLNs were successfully prepared, optimized and effectively targeted to RES and brain. SLNs of Stavudine have been shown to be taken up by brain 11 fold greater as compared to pure Stavudine. This finding is more important since Human Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV infect the central nervous system.

    Full Text Available Editors of scientific journals need to be conversant with the mechanisms by which scientific misconduct is amplified by publication practices. This paper provides definitions, ways to document the extent of the problem, and examples of editorial attempts to counter fraud. Fabrication, falsification, duplication, ghost authorship, gift authorship, lack of ethics approval, non-disclosure, 'salami' publication, conflicts of interest, auto-citation, duplicate submission, duplicate publications, and plagiarism are common problems. Editorial misconduct includes failure to observe due process, undue delay in reaching decisions and communicating these to authors, inappropriate review procedures, and confounding a journal's content with its advertising or promotional potential. Editors also can be admonished by their peers for failure to investigate suspected misconduct, failure to retract when indicated, and failure to abide voluntarily by the six main sources of relevant international guidelines on research, its reporting and editorial practice. Editors are in a good position to promulgate reasonable standards of practice, and can start by using consensus guidelines on publication ethics to state explicitly how their journals function. Reviewers, editors, authors and readers all then have a better chance to understand, and abide by, the rules of publishing.Editores de revistas científicas precisam estar atentos aos mecanismos de disseminação de condutas inadequadas no processo de publicação.

  14. Serendipity, International Cooperation and Navigational Aids: A History of Radio Echo Sounding (RES) Technologies, 1958-1979

    This paper explores the history of RES and examines major technological advances that fostered the use of this technique in the sub-glacial exploration of Antarctica. The paper will especially focus on three themes: the role played by accidental discoveries in the origins of RES; the importance of international collaboration in its technological development; and the need of establishing new technological networks in the deployment of RES apparatus during Antarctic missions. The origins of RES can be traced back to two important -albeit accidental- findings. First, during post-war US military operations in the Antarctic radio altimeters produced gross errors in height indication. Furthermore, during the IGY ionospheric research and sounding was hampered by interference due to bottom echoes. These serendipitous events helped to figure out that the Antarctic ice was transparent to certain frequencies, and therefore new radio technologies could be used to sound what lay beneath it. The establishment of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the Antarctic Treaty (AT) provided a new international framework vital to the development of RES technologies. This allowed researchers from different countries to come together and discuss important technological features for the first time. At a technical level, the setting up of international experiments (such as those of 1963 and 1964 in Greenland) gave an opportunity for experts from different countries to compare the performance of new RES apparatus. At a political level, the parallel debate within the AT community on the allocation of Antarctic radio frequencies helped radio engineers to work out ways to circumvent interference with radio communications. Finally, the deployment of RES equipment in Antarctic exploration relied upon a number of technological aids to improve the potential and accuracy of geophysical sounding. The use of new aircrafts, guidance systems, and computers proved vital in many

    Effective use of urban rapid railway systems requires that the railway systems be effectively connected with other transportation modes so that they are accessible. This paper uses the logit model and data to analyze the factors influencing railway access choices in a railway choice access model. The results indicate that access time, access cost, and access distance are factors significantly affecting railway access choices. The user's income significantly affects the probability of choosing to walk rather than to take a taxi,but is not related to choosing buses or bicycles. Vehicle ownership significantly affects the probability of choosing a taxi, but is not significantly related to the other modes. The conclusions provide an analysis tool for urban railway planning and construction.

    2015-04-01

    Increasing volumes of electricity derived from renewable energy sources (RES-E) affect the electricity market prices and the prices for final electricity consumers in the Baltic States. The results of a multivariate regression analysis show that in 2013 the RES-E contributed to decreasing the electricity market prices in the Baltic States. However, the final electricity consumers pay for the promotion of RES-E through the approved RES-E component which has a tendency to increase. It is estimated that in 2013 the net benefits from the wind electricity promotion were achieved in Lithuania and Latvia while the net cost - in Estonia. This suggests that the economic efficiency of the wind electricity support scheme based on the application of feed-in tariffs was higher than that based on the feed-in premium.

    Robust projections and predictions of climate variability and change, particularly at regional scales, rely on the driving processes being represented with fidelity in model simulations. The role of enhanced horizontal resolution in improved process representation in all components of the climate system is of growing interest, particularly as some recent simulations suggest both the possibility of significant changes in large-scale aspects of circulation as well as improvements in small-scale processes and extremes. However, such high-resolution global simulations at climate timescales, with resolutions of at least 50 km in the atmosphere and 0.25° in the ocean, have been performed at relatively few research centres and generally without overall coordination, primarily due to their computational cost. Assessing the robustness of the response of simulated climate to model resolution requires a large multi-model ensemble using a coordinated set of experiments. The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6) is the ideal framework within which to conduct such a study, due to the strong link to models being developed for the CMIP DECK experiments and other model intercomparison projects (MIPs). Increases in high-performance computing (HPC) resources, as well as the revised experimental design for CMIP6, now enable a detailed investigation of the impact of increased resolution up to synoptic weather scales on the simulated mean climate and its variability. The High Resolution Model Intercomparison Project (HighResMIP) presented in this paper applies, for the first time, a multi-model approach to the systematic investigation of the impact of horizontal resolution. A coordinated set of experiments has been designed to assess both a standard and an enhanced horizontal-resolution simulation in the atmosphere and ocean. The set of HighResMIP experiments is divided into three tiers consisting of atmosphere-only and coupled runs and spanning the period 1950-2050, with the

    Full Text Available Coreference resolution is one of the fundamental and challenging tasks in natural language processing. Resolving coreference successfully can have a significant positive effect on downstream natural language processing tasks, such as information extraction and question answering. The importance of coreference resolution for biomedical text analysis applications has increasingly been acknowledged. One of the difficulties in coreference resolution stems from the fact that distinct types of coreference (e.g., anaphora, appositive are expressed with a variety of lexical and syntactic means (e.g., personal pronouns, definite noun phrases, and that resolution of each combination often requires a different approach. In the biomedical domain, it is common for coreference annotation and resolution efforts to focus on specific subcategories of coreference deemed important for the downstream task. In the current work, we aim to address some of these concerns regarding coreference resolution in biomedical text. We propose a general, modular framework underpinned by a smorgasbord architecture (Bio-SCoRes, which incorporates a variety of coreference types, their mentions and allows fine-grained specification of resolution strategies to resolve coreference of distinct coreference type-mention pairs. For development and evaluation, we used a corpus of structured drug labels annotated with fine-grained coreference information. In addition, we evaluated our approach on two other corpora (i2b2/VA discharge summaries and protein coreference dataset to investigate its generality and ease of adaptation to other biomedical text types. Our results demonstrate the usefulness of our novel smorgasbord architecture. The specific pipelines based on the architecture perform successfully in linking coreferential mention pairs, while we find that recognition of full mention clusters is more challenging.

    Harper, Simon; Yesilada, Yeliz

    Access to, and movement around, complex online environments, of which the World Wide Web (Web) is the most popular example, has long been considered an important and major issue in the Web design and usability field. The commonly used slang phrase ‘surfing the Web’ implies rapid and free access, pointing to its importance among designers and users alike. It has also been long established that this potentially complex and difficult access is further complicated, and becomes neither rapid nor free, if the user is disabled. There are millions of people who have disabilities that affect their use of the Web. Web accessibility aims to help these people to perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with, as well as contribute to, the Web, and thereby the society in general. This accessibility is, in part, facilitated by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) currently moving from version one to two. These guidelines are intended to encourage designers to make sure their sites conform to specifications, and in that conformance enable the assistive technologies of disabled users to better interact with the page content. In this way, it was hoped that accessibility could be supported. While this is in part true, guidelines do not solve all problems and the new WCAG version two guidelines are surrounded by controversy and intrigue. This chapter aims to establish the published literature related to Web accessibility and Web accessibility guidelines, and discuss limitations of the current guidelines and future directions.

    Full Text Available Avaliar a publicação de um trabalho científico é um grande desafio quando é necessário classificar um currículo ou verificar o desempenho de uma instituição, como um programa de pós-graduação ou um setor de pesquisa. Na maioria das vezes, o julgamento tem por base sentimentos e experiências pessoais, sem padrões objetivos estabelecidos. OBJETIVO: Apresentar uma sugestão para determinar o valor de publicações de trabalhos científicos, sem influências alheias ao trabalho. MÉTODOS: Este guia para avaliação de publicações fundamenta-se na multiplicação de três fatores. O primeiro fator é o valor numérico atribuído ao autor por sua posição entre os demais na autoria do trabalho. O segundo fator é representado pela importância do tipo de publicação. Finalmente, o produto desses dois fatores é multiplicado por dez vezes o "fator de impacto" do periódico. Para este último item, quando o "fator de impacto" for zero, ele será substituído por 0,1. RESULTADOS: Esse método tem sido utilizado por nós desde 1994, com bons resultados e sem problemas quanto ao julgamento. CONCLUSÕES: Esse critério pode prevenir interferências subjetivas. Conflitos de interesse são evitados quando os padrões de avaliação são claramente apresentados no início do processo.BACKGROUND: The assessment of the publication of scientific works is a hard challenge when it is necessary to classify a curriculum vitae or even to verify the performance of an institution, such as a medical school, a postgraduate program or a research department. Most of time, the evaluation is based on personal feelings and experience, without established standard pattern. OBJECTIVE: To present a guideline to evaluate the publications of scientific papers, without foreign influence. METHODS: The guideline to assess the value of each publication is based on the multiplication of three factors. The first factor is the value of the author corresponding to his

    Full Text Available Resolution A/HRC/RES/16/2 adopted by the UN Human Rights Council on 8 April 2011 declared access to safe drinking water and sanitation a human right. However many people around the globe including people with disabilities do not have access to safe drinking water, hygiene or sanitation facilities. Inaccessibility of clean water sources, hygiene and sanitation facilities negatively impacts among others health, education, the ability to work, and the ability to partake in social activities. This paper looks at the benefits of, and access barriers to, clean water and sanitation for people with disabilities.

  2. Res ipsa loquitur in Canadian medical malpractice cases 1975-1988.

    Neff, C; Cook, R

    1991-01-01

    There is a perception in some quarters that courts too often, in the interest of compensating victims, find the medical profession at fault for 'failed medical care' which does not amount to negligence. If this were true, judges would likely make liberal use of the evidentiary rules res ipsa loquitur. However, a study of Canadian medical malpractice cases from 1975 to 1988 indicates that this is not the case and that judges on the contrary reject such a liberal use of the rule. Res ipsa loquitur was pleaded in only 37 of 142 cases, it was applied in only 14 of these cases, and the defendant was found liable in only ten of the cases in which it was applied. Furthermore, there is little evidence in these cases that judges are as a matter of policy trying to find legal rules to justify compensating more victims of medical misadventure, regardless of fault. On the contrary, judges not infrequently express sympathy for the plaintiff but nevertheless find for the defendant.

    The main aim of this study was to determine the optimal training zone for maximum power output. This was to be achieved through estimating mean bar velocity of the concentric phase of a bench press using a prediction equation. The values for the prediction equation would be obtained using OMNI–RES scale values of different loads of the bench press exercise. Sixty males (age 23.61 2.81 year; body height 176.29 6.73 cm; body mass 73.28 4.75 kg) voluntarily participated in the study and were tested using an incremental protocol on a Smith machine to determine one repetition maximum (1RM) in the bench press exercise. A linear regression analysis produced a strong correlation (r = −0.94) between rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and mean bar velocity (Velmean). The Pearson correlation analysis between real power output (PotReal) and estimated power (PotEst) showed a strong correlation coefficient of r = 0.77, significant at a level of p = 0.01. Therefore, the OMNI–RES scale can be used to predict Velmean in the bench press exercise to control the intensity of the exercise. The positive relationship between PotReal and PotEst allowed for the identification of a maximum power-training zone. PMID:25713677

    Full Text Available Resumo Este artigo estuda o processo de publicação no Brasil escravista do principal romance antiescravista do séc. XIX: A Cabana do Pai Tomás , da escritora norte-americana Harriet Beecher Stowe. Apresentamos as condições e modalidades de publicação do romance vigentes no Brasil entre 1853 e 1888 e nos concentramos na análise da edição, em português, publicada em Paris pela casa Rey e Belhatte, em 1853. Articulando referenciais da história social dos escritos, da história do livro e dos estudos de transferências culturais, consideramos as intervenções realizadas pelo tradutor da obra, mediante a análise do material peritextual e os direcionamentos de sentido aí propostos. Analisamos esse processo de edição como um caso de transferência cultural triangular, com destaque para a importância das mediações europeias que marcam a difusão do livro da autora norte-americana no Brasil. Demonstramos, finalmente, como a edição estudada buscou atenuar as expectativas sociais originais do romance. Ao substituir o imediatismo do abolicionismo de Stowe por uma interpretação gradualista, a edição permitia, aos seus leitores, conceber o fim da escravidão num futuro bem mais longínquo, no mundo lusófono.

  13. Strong Tectonic Rotation Evidenced by the Study of a Widespread Remagnetization in the Corbières Thrust Sheet (France)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rouvier, H.; Henry, B.; Le Goff, M.

    2009-05-01

    This study was carried out in the eastern part of the French Pyrénées where the tectonic structures, E-W oriented, bend northward at the Corbières virgation. This change affects the North-Pyrenean zone that overlains the foreland at the North Pyrenean thrust and its eastern extension, the Corbières thrust sheet. In this area, the Corbières thrust sheet is formed by the Mesozoic cover overlying down flat the Cenozoic formations of the Aude basin. The studied sites belongs to the North Pyrenean zone and to the Corbières thrust sheet and correspond to ages from Lias to Lower Cretaceous. Rock-magnetism analyses indicate that magnetite is the main magnetization carrier. Natural Remanent Magnetization mostly corresponds to a viscous component A and a component B determined during treatments from 300 to 400-500°C. Some samples also present a higher temperature component C, which cannot be isolated because of strong mineralogical alteration during thermal demagnetization at these temperatures or of too weak magnetization intensity. Dip variation in neighboring sites allows fold tests indicating synfolding remagnetization (i.e. acquired between or during different tectonic phases) for the component B. Direction of the latter has been then determined using small circles method for groups of neighboring sites. Previous study presented last year and made in the large Saint-Paul de Fenouillet syncline showed that western E-W part of the syncline is only locally affected by weak rotations while a large counterclockwise rotation affected all the eastern part of the syncline at the Corbières virgation during the Tertiary tectonic phase. New data have been acquired in numerous sites from the Corbières thrust sheet south from the Aude River. They point out that the different units of the Corbières thrust sheet also show large counterclockwise rotation. The emplacement of the the Corbières thrust sheet then appears as the result of a large movement of rotation of the North

    Jasmonic acid (JA) regulates a wide spectrum of plant biological processes, from plant development to stress defense responses. The role of JA in plant response to salt stress is scarcely known, and even less known is the specific response in root, the main plant organ responsible for ionic uptake and transport to the shoot. Here we report the characterization of the first tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) mutant, named res (restored cell structure by salinity), that accumulates JA in roots prior to exposure to stress. The res tomato mutant presented remarkable growth inhibition and displayed important morphological alterations and cellular disorganization in roots and leaves under control conditions, while these alterations disappeared when the res mutant plants were grown under salt stress. Reciprocal grafting between res and wild type (WT) (tomato cv. Moneymaker) indicated that the main organ responsible for the development of alterations was the root. The JA-signaling pathway is activated in res roots prior to stress, with transcripts levels being even higher in control condition than in salinity. Future studies on this mutant will provide significant advances in the knowledge of JA role in root in salt-stress tolerance response, as well as in the energy trade-off between plant growth and response to stress.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Mitochondria are sub-cellular organelles that have a central role in energy production and in other metabolic pathways of all eukaryotic respiring cells. In the last few years, with more and more genomes being sequenced, a huge amount of data has been generated providing an unprecedented opportunity to use the comparative analysis approach in studies of evolution and functional genomics with the aim of shedding light on molecular mechanisms regulating mitochondrial biogenesis and metabolism. In this context, the problem of the optimal extraction of representative datasets of genomic and proteomic data assumes a crucial importance. Specialised resources for nuclear-encoded mitochondria-related proteins already exist; however, no mitochondrial database is currently available with the same features of MitoRes, which is an update of the MitoNuc database extensively modified in its structure, data sources and graphical interface. It contains data on nuclear-encoded mitochondria-related products for any metazoan species for which this type of data is available and also provides comprehensive sequence datasets (gene, transcript and protein as well as useful tools for their extraction and export. Description MitoRes http://www2.ba.itb.cnr.it/MitoRes/ consolidates information from publicly external sources and automatically annotates them into a relational database. Additionally, it also clusters proteins on the basis of their sequence similarity and interconnects them with genomic data. The search engine and sequence management tools allow the query/retrieval of the database content and the extraction and export of sequences (gene, transcript, protein and related sub-sequences (intron, exon, UTR, CDS, signal peptide and gene flanking regions ready to be used for in silico analysis. Conclusion The tool we describe here has been developed to support lab scientists and bioinformaticians alike in the characterization of molecular

    Full Text Available Les mélanges de polymères thermoplastiques font actuellement l'objet d'un effort considérable de recherche et de développement. Cette synthèse bibliographique concerne principalement les mélanges mécaniques de polymères incompatibles à l'état fondu. Ceux-ci ont une morphologie hétérogène qui dépend des conditions de mise en oeuvre autant que de la nature des constituants. De plus, pour ce type de matériaux, la nature de l'interface joue un rôle déterminant sur la formation de la morphologie hétérogène et donc sur les propriétés du produit final. D'autre part un problème important réside dans la stabilité des mélanges réalisés. L'ajout d'une faible quantité d'agent tensioactif de type copolymère séquencé, ou greffé, ou la modification chimique des constituants (greffage ou réticulation par exemple permet, dans certains cas d'améliorer très sensiblement les propriétés des mélanges en augmentant l'adhérence entre les phases immiscibles. L'ensemble de ces considérations permettent la réalisation industrielle de nouveaux matériaux polymères aux caractéristiques spécifiques. Thermoplastic polymer mixtures are currently the subject of considerable research and development efforts. This bibliographic synthesis deals mainly with melt blending process of incompatible polymers. These blends have a heterogeneous morphology that depends on the processing conditions as much as on the chemical structure of the componants. Likewise, for these materials the nature of the interface plays a decisive role on the formation of the heterogeneous morphology and hence on the properties on the end product. Furthermore, an important problem is to stabilize the morphology of the blends. Adding a small amount of surfactant of the sequenced of grafted copolymer type or, else, the chemical reaction of the constituents (e. g. grafting or branching during processing are ways in some cases of considerably improving the properties of

A temperatura máxima atingida no centro da leira foi de 53,3ºC (média semanal, já as reduções de massa de ST e SV e volume durante o processo de pré-compostagem foram de 36,1; 44,3 e 23,3%, respectivamente, e, durante o processo de compostagem, foram de 21,8; 23,8 e 4,4%. A baixa redução do volume das leiras pode estar associada à alta concentração de MORC (40,1% que pode ser principalmente relacionada à qualidade da fonte de carbono. O processo promoveu satisfatórias reduções totais de ST, SV e volume, sendo, respectivamente, 50,1; 57,5 e 26,7%. No entanto, foram observadas reduções de 43% na quantidade de nitrogênio presente no composto final. Apesar das reduções de nitrogênio, a compostagem demonstrou ser um método eficiente no tratamento dos resíduos sólidos de abatedouro avícola.

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid in alliance with Photo Voltaic (PV energy, Wind Energy and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM Fuel cells. Microgrids are becoming increasingly attractive to the researchers because of the less greenhouse gases, low running cost, and flexibility to operate in connection with utility grid. The Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid constitutes independent AC and DC subgrids, where all the corresponding sources and loads are connected to their respective buses and these buses are interfaced using an interfacing converter. The Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid increases system efficiency by reducing the multiple reverse conversions involved in conventional RES integration to grid. A Small Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid in grid connected mode was modeled and simulated in MATLAB-SIMULINK environment. The simulation results proves the stable operation considering the uncertainty of generations and loads.

    Full Text Available En dépit de la Convention de Montego Bay régulant les différents espaces maritimes, force est de constater que les différends territoriaux concernent régulièrement les frontières maritimes. De nouvelles revendications territoriales voient actuellement le jour, en raison des enjeux économiques liés à l'appropriation de nouvelles ressources naturelles ou induits par le réchauffement climatique (cf. Arctique. La volonté de certains États d'affirmer leur puissance régionale peut également se traduire par une stratégie de « juridiction rampante » sur des zones maritimes voisines (cf. Mer de Chine.

  16. Access cavity preparation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Adams, N; Tomson, P L

    2014-03-01

    Each stage of root canal treatment should be carried out to the highest possible standard. The access cavity is arguably the most important technical stage, as subsequent preparation of the root canal(s) can be severely comprised if this is not well executed. Inadequate access can lead to canals being left untreated, poorly disinfected, difficult to shape and obturate, and may ultimately lead to the failure of the treatment. This paper highlights common features in root canal anatomy and outlines basic principles for locating root canals and producing a good access cavity. It also explores each phase of the preparation in detail and offers suggestions of instruments that have been specifically designed to overcome potential difficulties in the process. Good access design and preparation will result in an operative environment which will facilitate cleaning, shaping and obturation of the root canal system in order to maximise success.

    2009-01-01

    Introduction Accessibility and assistive products and technologies are needed to ensure the rights of persons with disabilities and older persons. Many developments have been implemented in laws, standards, markets and from the consumers perspective, at international, European and national levels. The real issue is that not all the potential users benefit from the use of assistive products or accessible measures. Discussion Innovative methods are needed to allow all potential users to have real advantage of assistive technologies and accessible and design for all facilities. Best practices will be presented and existing gaps and recommendations will be discussed. Cost-benefits aspects will also be presented. Conclusion In order to get advantages from opportunities of globalization, hard work and responsibilities of all stakeholders are needed, so that assistive products and accessibility reach a whole range of situations and environments and contribute to ensure quality of life in a society for all.

    Full Text Available The objective of this research was to analyze and classify the prevailing themes and ways of research used in publications made in the years of 1995 to 2006 by teachers from the Nursing Department in the State University of Londrina. The place and time of formation, titles, the field of work of the teachers and the classification of the periodicals were also analyzed. Criteria from QUALIS/CAPES – the national program for the qualification of higher education professionals, were used for the classification of the publications. The data was collected from Curricula Lattes where there was a data base of 183 publications edited in 51 periodicals, out of those, 56,9% were in the theme of organization, 31,14% in the field of assistance and 12,02% with the profession theme. As far as classification of the QUALIS/CAPES is concerned, out of 51 means of publication, 33 of them fit into categories A to C, most of them published at the national level only. The analysis revealed that the predominance of teachers in the nursing department at UEL have an investigative profile in the organizational field and also suggested future researches in less explored fields in order to strengthen this professional group. O objetivo desse estudo foi analisar e classificar a direcionalidade temática e as linhas de pesquisa das publicações feitas pelos docentes do curso de enfermagem da Universidade Estadual de Londrina-PR (UEL no período de 1995 a 2006. Também foram analisados o local e o tempo de formação, a titulação, a área de atuação dos docentes e a classificação dos periódicos. Como critérios balisadores da classificação dos artigos, adotou-se o QUALIS da Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior – CAPES. Os dados foram coletados na plataforma do Curriculum Lattes de cada docente, nos quais se levantou o registro de 183 publicações, editadas em 51 periódicos, sendo 56,9% na temática organizacional, 31,14% ao segmento

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of journal publications on the subject of QFD from 2007 to 2012. It also aims to compare the results with another analysis conducted between 2000 and 2006 to evaluate the evolution of the method’s use. The bibliographic research was carried out on databases accessed on the Capes portal. Relevant aspects of the retrieved publications were obtained. A research approach based on case studies was used on almost half of the publications and indicated that QFD was applied in real-life situations. The integration of QFD with other methods (fuzzy logic, AHP, FMEA, etc. has also been found to be relevant for the time period studied. This suggests that this integration is becoming a tendency, since it makes QFD use more robust.

    Molin, Pierre; Rockwood, Kenneth

    2016-01-01

    RÉSUMÉ Deux nouvelles séries de critères pour le diagnostic de la maladie d’Alzheimer sont maintenant en vigueur, incluant une série publiée en 2014. Un « nouveau lexique » conceptualisant la maladie a également été proposé. En 2012, la Conférence consensuelle canadienne affirmait que, pour l’instant, ni les nouveaux critères ni la nouvelle terminologie ne modifiaient la pratique en première ligne. Néanmoins, pour les consultants spécialisés en démence, l’avènement de ces critères ouvre la porte à de nombreux défis et occasions. En général, les nouveaux critères accordent une place grandissante aux biomarqueurs. Toutefois, les évidences qui sous-tendent leur utilisation demeurent incomplètes. L’étude de sujets provenant de la communauté ayant raffiné notre compréhension des critères neuropathologiques des démences, il est probable que notre expérience avec les biomarqueurs en bénéficierait également. Pour l’instant, ces critères sont réservés à la recherche. Cependant, leur adoption à plus large échelle est pressentie, particulièrement aux États-Unis. Les gériatres canadiens doivent être conscients de la terminologie maintenant utilisée et du changement fondamental qui en découle : un diagnostic de maladie d’Alzheimer ne requiert plus un diagnostic de démence. Dans l’attente de nouvelles données – auxquelles les gériatres peuvent contribuer – il y a lieu de faire preuve de prudence dans l’adoption des nouveaux critères, car ils sont susceptibles de moins bien s’appliquer aux personnes âgées.

    2016-01-01

    The Simple Image Access protocol (SIA) provides capabilities for the discovery, description, access, and retrieval of multi-dimensional image datasets, including 2-D images as well as datacubes of three or more dimensions. SIA data discovery is based on the ObsCore Data Model (ObsCoreDM), which primarily describes data products by the physical axes (spatial, spectral, time, and polarization). Image datasets with dimension greater than 2 are often referred to as datacubes, cube or image cube datasets and may be considered examples of hypercube or n-cube data. In this document the term "image" refers to general multi-dimensional datasets and is synonymous with these other terms unless the image dimensionality is otherwise specified. SIA provides capabilities for image discovery and access. Data discovery and metadata access (using ObsCoreDM) are defined here. The capabilities for drilling down to data files (and related resources) and services for remote access are defined elsewhere, but SIA also allows for dir...

    Full Text Available A construção de represas pode aumentar a emissão de gases do efeito estufa (GEE, principalmente metano (CH4 pela decomposição anaeróbica dos resíduos florestais, como galhos, ramos, folhas e miscelânea inundados. Objetivou-se, neste estudo, avaliar a emissão de CH4 após a inundação do solo coberto com resíduos florestais. Unidades experimentais foram construídas com tubos de PVC contendo solo e diferentes combinações de dose (0; 21,2; 42,3 e 64,1 Mg ha-1 e tipo de resíduos (folhas, ramos e miscelânea, galhos e composição original e água de rio. O delineamento experimental foi inteiramente casualizado com arranjo fatorial e três repetições. As taxas de emissão de CH4 foram monitoradas em 19 eventos durante um ano (Fevereiro/2012 a Março/2013. Cerca de 75 dias após a incubação do solo com resíduos florestais verificou-se aumento das emissões de CH4, ocorrendo dois picos de emissão, aos 111 e aos 249 dias. A emissão acumulada de CH4 no primeiro ano de alagamento foi de 200 g C m-2 na dose zero, passando a valores próximos a 400 g C m-2 nas doses de 21,2 Mg ha-1 e maiores, não havendo efeito do tipo de resíduo, apenas da dose, como fator isolado.

  13. Access, ethics and piracy

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Stuart Lawson

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available Ownership of intellectual property rights for a large proportion of the scholarly record is held by publishers, so a majority of journal articles are behind paywalls and unavailable to most people. As a result some readers are encouraged to use pirate websites such as Sci-Hub to access them, a practice that is alternately regarded as criminal and unethical or as a justified act of civil disobedience. This article considers both the efficacy and ethics of piracy, placing ‘guerrilla open access’ within a longer history of piracy and access to knowledge. By doing so, it is shown that piracy is an inevitable part of the intellectual landscape that can render the current intellectual property regime irrelevant. If we wish to actively construct a true scholarly commons, open access emerges as a contender for moving beyond proprietary forms of commodifying scholarly knowledge towards the creation of an open scholarly communication system that is fit for purpose.

    La cellulite cervico-faciale grave est une infection polymicrobienne extensive et redoutable du tissu cellulo-adipeux de la face et du cou. L'objectif de cette étude est d'analyser certains facteurs favorisants et d’évaluer les critères de gravité en fonction des formes anatomo-cliniques. Il s'agit d'une étude rétrospective réalisée, entre janvier 2007 et décembre 2012, au service de chirurgie maxillo faciale de l'hôpital militaire Avicenne de Marrakech. Sur 147 cas de cellulites cervico-faciales pris en charge au niveau du service, 13 dossiers de cellulites graves ont été retenus. Neuf hommes (69%) et quatre femmes (31%) ont fait l'objet de cette étude, avec un âge moyen de 35 ans. Tous les patients ont été adressés pour prise en charge secondaire après avoir pris des anti-inflammatoires (AI). Sept cas (54%) étaient immunocompétents. La cause dentaire était soulevée chez neufs cas (69%). Cinq cas (38%) ont présenté une forme pseudo phlegmoneuse avec des signes compressifs des voies aéro-digestives. L'extension médiastinale a été observée chez quatre patients (31%). La forme nécrosante extensive a été retrouvée dans trois cas (23%). L’étude bactériologique, réalisée chez tous les patients, avait mis en évidence une flore microbienne mixte et polymorphe. Les cellulites cervico-faciales graves posent un réel problème de prise en charge thérapeutique. L'analyse des facteurs favorisants et l’évaluation des critères de gravité dans cette série ont permis de limiter une évolution défavorable. PMID:26113891

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robert Bruegmann

    2008-07-01

    Full Text Available This essay argues that many of the assumptions that have been made about sprawl are misleading or just wrong. Nowhere has this been more the case than in debates about transportation and access. Because of this, it is not surprising that a good many of the policies advocated by proponents of Smart Growth would almost certainly lead to reduced mobility and impaired accessibility for a large part of the population. At very least, the debates over sprawl have pitted private vs. public transportation in a way that has contributed to serious underfunding of transportation infrastructure of all kinds.

    Operational research (OR) has become a hot topic at national meetings, international conferences and donor fora. The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Operational Centre Brussels strongly promote and implement OR with colleagues in low- and middle-income countries. Here we describe how the two organisations define OR, and explain the guiding principles and methodology that underpin the strategy for developing and expanding OR in those countries. We articulate The Union's and MSF's approach to supporting OR, highlighting the main synergies and differences. Then, using the Malawi National Tuberculosis Control Programme as an example, we show how OR can be embedded within tuberculosis control activities, leading to changes in policy and practice at the national level. We discuss the difficult, yet vitally important, issue of capacity building, and share our vision of a new paradigm of product-related training and performance-based OR fellowships as two ways of developing the necessary skills at country level to ensure research is actually performed. Finally, we highlight the need to consider and incorporate into practice the ethical components of OR. This is a key moment to be involved in OR. We are confident that in partnership with interested stakeholders, including the World Health Organization, we can stimulate the implementation of quality, relevant OR as an integral part of health service delivery that in turn will lead to better health for people, particularly for those living in the poorer parts of the world.

    Full Text Available Resumo: A utilização de subprodutos de cervejaria na alimentação de bovinos tem crescido nos últimos anos como uma excelente alternativa na manutenção ou aumento da produtividade na bovinocultura, sobretudo na Região Sudeste. Entre os resíduos mais empregados estão o bagaço de malte oriundo da "cevada" e o "levedo de cerveja", um subproduto líquido que contém álcool, muito utilizado no Estado do Rio de Janeiro. O uso incorreto ou sem os devidos cuidados, bem como o armazenamento de forma inadequada, contudo, podem ser responsáveis por quadros de intoxicação por etanol, neurotoxicose por Aspergillus clavatus, acidose ruminal e botulismo. Esse trabalho tem por intuito alertar para a importância dessas condições como causa de sérios prejuízos econômicos à pecuária e fornecer subsídios para o estabelecimento do diagnóstico, diagnóstico diferencial e profilaxia das mesmas.

    The optical Stark effect is a coherent light-matter interaction describing the modification of quantum states by non-resonant light illumination in atoms, solids and nanostructures. Researchers have strived to utilize this effect to control exciton states, aiming to realize ultra-high-speed optical switches and modulators. However, most studies have focused on the optical Stark effect of only the lowest exciton state due to lack of energy selectivity, resulting in low degree-of-freedom devices. Here, by applying a linearly polarized laser pulse to few-layer ReS2, where reduced symmetry leads to strong in-plane anisotropy of excitons, we control the optical Stark shift of two energetically separated exciton states. Especially, we selectively tune the Stark effect of an individual state with varying light polarization. This is possible because each state has a completely distinct dependence on light polarization due to different excitonic transition dipole moments. Our finding provides a methodology for energy-selective control of exciton states.

  13. In Search of the 'New Informal Legitimacy' of Médecins Sans Frontières.

    2012-04-01

    FOR MEDICAL HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS, MAKING THEIR SOURCES OF LEGITIMACY EXPLICIT IS A USEFUL EXERCISE, IN RESPONSE TO: misperceptions, concerns over the 'humanitarian space', controversies about specific humanitarian actions, challenges about resources allocation and moral suffering among humanitarian workers. This is also a difficult exercise, where normative criteria such as international law or humanitarian principles are often misrepresented as primary sources of legitimacy. This essay first argues for a morally principled definition of humanitarian medicine, based on the selfless intention of individual humanitarian actors. Taking Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) as a case in point, a common source of moral legitimacy for medical humanitarian organizations is their cosmopolitan appeal to distributive justice and collective responsibility. More informally, their legitimacy is grounded in the rightfulness of specific actions and choices. This implies a constant commitment to publicity and accountability. Legitimacy is also generated by tangible support from the public to individual organizations, by commitments to professional integrity, and by academic alliances to support evidence-based practice and operational research.

    De nombreux équipements de la machine LEP seront réutilisés dans les installations de refroidissement par eau, liées au fonctionnement du LHC. Ce sera notamment le cas des compresseurs frigorifiques équipant les centrales de production d'eau glacée. Dix ans après la mise en service de ces équipements, un bilan technique et financier a été dressé. Durant cette période, le monde du froid a connu de grandes évolutions comme, par exemple, la mise en place de nouvelles législations dans l'utilisation des fluides frigorigènes. Ces réglementations ont contraint l'industrie chimique et, plus particulièrement, les constructeurs de matériel frigorifique à développer de nouvelles générations de réfrigérants, d'échangeurs et de compresseurs. Au vu du bilan d'exploitation du LEP et face aux nouvelles technologies, le CERN a défini les critères de choix à prendre en compte lors de la conception de centrales frigorifiques de grandes puissances, centrales indispensables au fonctionnement des accé...

    Full Text Available Charles III duc de Savoie se retrouve après une série de défaites contre les Bernois et contre François I pratiquement dépouillé de ses Etats. A sa mort en 1553 il n’est plus maître que de Nice et de Verceil dans le nord du Piémont. L’Etat savoyard est sur le point de disparaître. La difficile succession revient à son fils Emmanuel Philibert. Le nouveau duc est alors lieutenant de Philippe II dans la guerre qu’il mène contre les Français. Le 10  août 1557 il gagne une bataille décisive à Saint-Quentin. La paix du Cateau-Cambrésis qui clôt cette guerre en 1559 permet à Emmanuel Philibert de recouvrer ses Etats. C’est avec une ambition nouvelle que le duc reprend le pouvoir. Il rêve de bâtir un Etat moderne et efficace pour servir une diplomatie ambitieuse. Celle-ci passe par une présence sur la scène méditerranéenne occidentale où se déroule depuis le début du siècle un conflit majeur entre les puissances chrétiennes et l’Empire ottoman. Les incidents sont permanents et chaque campagne annuelle se termine par une formidable bataille navale opposant  deux voire trois cents galères. Année après année les Turcs progressent. Le duc souhaite mettre son poids de puissance moyenne dans la balance et devenir ainsi un allié privilégié de l’Espagne. Pour cela il lui faut des galères et un port bien protégé pour les abriter. C’est-à-dire beaucoup d’argent. La rénovation fiscale qu’il entreprend et une bonne gestion des droits indirects permettront de faire cet effort. Le budget des galères occupe ainsi une place non négligeable dans les finances de l’Etat. Autant dire que le poste est surveillé.

    Full Text Available The past decade has seen the development of organic polymers which can withstand extreme thermal, chemical and mechanical stresses. Three applications requiring resistance to these stresses are reviewed. Aerospace needs are for thermo-oxidatively stable adhe-sives, coatings and electrical insulation. Numerous polymers have been synthesized which are stable to high tempera-tures, but not all of these can be processed. Recent work has emphasized modifications to make stable polymers tractible. Types of polymers include aromatic (polyphenylene, polyester, polyamide, polyimidine, many heterocycles, ladders and inorganic backbones. Synthesis and properties of some of these polymers are discussed. Geothermal applications are directed toward elastomeric seals that require resistance to reduction and hydrolysis. The most successful formulations are EPDM and fluoroelastomers, with the former being superior and now used in the field. Long term undersea applications of elastomers require resistance to water absorption or permeation, hydrolysis and leaching of the rubber components. Solubility and permeation rate increase drastically with temperature, effects which can be used to evaluate service life. Twolayer laminates of different elastomers show permeation which is directionally dependent and which does not fit accepted calculated averages. La dernière décennie a vu le développement de polymères organiques pouvant résister à des contraintes extrêmes mécaniques, chimiques et thermiques. On passe en revue dans cet article trois applications exigeant une résistance à ces contraintes. Dans le domaine de l'aérospatiale on a besoin de ces polymères pour les adhésifs stables à l'oxydation thermique, pour les revêtements et pour l'isolement électrique. On a synthétisé de nombreux polymères qui sont stables à des hautes températures mais tous ne peuvent pas être travaillés. Un travail récent a mis en valeur les modifications permettant de

  1. Efficient Distributed Medium Access

    2011-01-01

    Consider a wireless network of n nodes represented by a graph G=(V, E) where an edge (i,j) models the fact that transmissions of i and j interfere with each other, i.e. simultaneous transmissions of i and j become unsuccessful. Hence it is required that at each time instance a set of non-interfering nodes (corresponding to an independent set in G) access the wireless medium. To utilize wireless resources efficiently, it is required to arbitrate the access of medium among interfering nodes properly. Moreover, to be of practical use, such a mechanism is required to be totally distributed as well as simple. As the main result of this paper, we provide such a medium access algorithm. It is randomized, totally distributed and simple: each node attempts to access medium at each time with probability that is a function of its local information. We establish efficiency of the algorithm by showing that the corresponding network Markov chain is positive recurrent as long as the demand imposed on the network can be supp...

    2002-01-01

    There is pessimism regarding the ability of the Acute Health Sector to manage access block for emergency and elective patients. Melbourne Health suffered an acute bed crisis in 2001 resulting in record ambulance diversions and emergency department (ED) delays. We conducted an observational study to reduce access block for emergency patients whilst maintaining elective throughput at Melbourne Health. This involved a clinician-led taskforce using previously proven principles for organisational change to implement 51 actions to improve patient access over a three-month period. The primary outcome measures were ambulance diversion, emergency patients waiting more than 12 hours for an inpatient bed, elective throughput and theatre cancellations. Despite a reduction in multi-day bed numbers all primary objectives were met, ambulance diversion decreased to minimal levels, 12-hour waits decreased by 40% and elective throughput was maintained. Theatre cancellations were also minimised. We conclude that access block can be improved by clinician-led implementation of proven process improvements over a short time frame. The ability to sustain change over the longer term requires further study.

  11. Fixed Access Network Sharing

    Cornaglia, Bruno; Young, Gavin; Marchetta, Antonio

    2015-12-01

    Fixed broadband network deployments are moving inexorably to the use of Next Generation Access (NGA) technologies and architectures. These NGA deployments involve building fiber infrastructure increasingly closer to the customer in order to increase the proportion of fiber on the customer's access connection (Fibre-To-The-Home/Building/Door/Cabinet… i.e. FTTx). This increases the speed of services that can be sold and will be increasingly required to meet the demands of new generations of video services as we evolve from HDTV to "Ultra-HD TV" with 4k and 8k lines of video resolution. However, building fiber access networks is a costly endeavor. It requires significant capital in order to cover any significant geographic coverage. Hence many companies are forming partnerships and joint-ventures in order to share the NGA network construction costs. One form of such a partnership involves two companies agreeing to each build to cover a certain geographic area and then "cross-selling" NGA products to each other in order to access customers within their partner's footprint (NGA coverage area). This is tantamount to a bi-lateral wholesale partnership. The concept of Fixed Access Network Sharing (FANS) is to address the possibility of sharing infrastructure with a high degree of flexibility for all network operators involved. By providing greater configuration control over the NGA network infrastructure, the service provider has a greater ability to define the network and hence to define their product capabilities at the active layer. This gives the service provider partners greater product development autonomy plus the ability to differentiate from each other at the active network layer.

L’objectif de cette étude était d’identifier un ou plusieurs constituants lipidiques spécifiques des tissus nerveux, et principalement de la moelle épinière, permettant de vérifier l’absence de tissus nerveux dans les matières premières utilisées pour la fabrication de gélatine. Pour cela, la composition lipidique de la moelle épinière a été comparée à celle des matières premières de gélatine. La pertinence d’un paramètre (p, vis-à-vis d’une source donnée, a été évaluée par la valeur du facteur : F (p = [p]moelle épinière/[p] OS, qui est le rapport entre sa concentration dans les lipides de moelle épinière et celle dans la source osseuse considérée. Plus la valeur de F est élevée, plus le paramètre est pertinent. Trois paramètres ont été ciblés sur la base de leur caractère spécifique des tissus nerveux par rapport aux graisses d’os : (1 les phospholipides (PL; (2 les acides gras à très longues chaînes (AGTLC = 20:0 + 20:1 + 22:0 + 22:1 n-9 + 23:0 + 24:0 + 24:1 n-9 ; (3 les alcools gras, analysés sous la forme de dérivés diméthyl acétals (DMA. Eu égard aux matières premières servant à la fabrication de gélatine, la valeur de FPL varie de 8 à 15, celle de FAGTLC de 25 à 41. La valeur de FDMA est égale à 26 vis-à-vis des « os légers », elle est infiniment grande vis-à-vis des « os lourds » puisque, dans cette matière première, les DMA sont indétectables. Ainsi pour cette catégorie de matière première, le paramètre DMA s’avère le plus adapté pour détecter du matériel d’origine nerveuse (moelle épinière.

    Full Text Available As bioinformatic workflows become increasingly complex and involve multiple specialized tools, so does the difficulty of reliably reproducing those workflows. Cytoscape is a critical workflow component for executing network visualization, analysis, and publishing tasks, but it can be operated only manually via a point-and-click user interface. Consequently, Cytoscape-oriented tasks are laborious and often error prone, especially with multistep protocols involving many networks. In this paper, we present the new cyREST Cytoscape app and accompanying harmonization libraries. Together, they improve workflow reproducibility and researcher productivity by enabling popular languages (e.g., Python and R, JavaScript, and C# and tools (e.g., IPython/Jupyter Notebook and RStudio to directly define and query networks, and perform network analysis, layouts and renderings. We describe cyREST’s API and overall construction, and present Python- and R-based examples that illustrate how Cytoscape can be integrated into large scale data analysis pipelines. cyREST is available in the Cytoscape app store (http://apps.cytoscape.org where it has been downloaded over 1900 times since its release in late 2014.

    This paper presents a first estimate of the costs and risks of a potential import of renewable energy statistics by the Dutch Government in order to meet the binding renewable energy (RE) target of 14% by 2020. Recently, the new government has announced that it will increase the ambition from 14% to 16%. Progress so-far has been slow however and meeting these targets requires near to maximum realisable deployment rates of all relevant technologies. It points at the necessity to increase national policy measures (spatial, political, financial, etc.) for all renewable energy technologies or alternatively, to apply the cooperation mechanisms and/or import RES statistics from other countries. It is generally assumed that imported RE statistics, through the cooperation mechanisms of the European RES Directive, will have lower costs than supporting the potentially more expensive domestic technologies that would be needed to meet the targets fully by domestic production. This paper shows that this assumption is questionable, and that the risks of pursuing an import-strategy may be significant. The analysis shows that the use of statistical transfers, which in principle may be a viable option for realising part of the Dutch RE target, is linked to high uncertainties. Important aspects contributing to these uncertainties are: The effectiveness and efficiency of policies in the European Member States to meet domestic RE targets by and up to 2020, and hence the related surplus/shortfall of RE production and resulting market prices for statistical transfers; The price setting mechanisms that will be established between Member States, including the anticipated cost of infringement in case of non-fulfilment of the 2020 targets. Imports will likely be charged against the market prices for (statistical) transfers, not against the cost prices of RE technologies. The price of statistical transfers can be expected to be higher in the case of a clear 'buyer market' in which

    Stereo data collected by the HiRes experiment over a six year period are examined for large-scale anisotropy related to the inhomogeneous distribution of matter in the nearby Universe. We consider the generic case of small cosmic-ray deflections and a large number of sources tracing the matter distribution. In this matter tracer model the expected cosmic ray flux depends essentially on a single free parameter, the typical deflection angle theta. We find that the HiRes data with threshold energies of 40 EeV and 57 EeV are incompatible with the matter tracer model at a 95% confidence level unless theta is larger than 10 degrees and are compatible with an isotropic flux. The data set above 10 EeV is compatible with both the matter tracer model and an isotropic flux.

    Two-dimensional (2D) materials have emerged as promising candidates for future electronic applications. Among them, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) demonstrate not only potential as ultrathin transistor channel material, but also intriguing spin and valley physics, which in principle could allow new types of devices and circuits. Here we report on the first study of two-dimensional anisotropic ReS2 at high doping levels, enabled by polymer electrolyte gating. Significantly increasing the doping level using electrolyte instead of standard solid gate, we measured an unusual modulation of the conductivity at high carrier densities in monolayer ReS2. In the case of thicker flakes, the effect is milder and an insulator-metal-insulator sequence with increasing doping is observed. Transport measurements provide the evidence of major influence of ionic disorder. Furthermore, we discuss possible band structure effects.

    Connecting ionosondes to the Internet gives easy access to real-time information on ionospheric conditions. Some of the ionosonde sites provide just the ionogram displays, others give in addition the scaled ionospheric characteristics directly usable for frequency management and HF channel assessment. Some sounders also store days or months of station data, which makes it possible remotely to evaluate the time history of geophysical events. The Internet link is also a convenient means for remote system maintenance and control. The paper addresses various aspects of the Internet ionosonde scenario, including data base support, WWW publishing, user interface, security, and data format. A list of Internet accessible ionosonde stations is provided with a brief description.

  1. Accessing offshoring advantages

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to advance the understanding of factors that affect offshoring performance results. To do so, this paper focuses on the access to location-specific advantages, rather than solely on the properties of the offshoring company, its strategy or environment....... Assuming that different levels of synergy may exist between particular offshoring strategic decisions (choosing offshore outsourcing or captive offshoring and the type of function) and different offshoring advantages, this work advocates that the actual fact of realization of certain offshoring advantages...... (getting or not getting access to them) is a more reliable predictor of offshoring success. Design/methodology/approach – Aset of hypotheses derived from the extant literature is tested on the data from a quantitative survey of 1,143 Scandinavian firms. Findings – The paper demonstrates that different...

    Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) is a genetic encephalopathy whose clinical features mimic those of acquired in utero viral infection. AGS exhibits locus heterogeneity, with mutations identified in genes encoding the 3′→5′ exonuclease TREX1 and the three subunits of the RNASEH2 endonuclease complex. To define the molecular spectrum of AGS, we performed mutation screening in patients, from 127 pedigrees, with a clinical diagnosis of the disease. Biallelic mutations in TREX1, RNASEH2A, RNASEH2B, and RNASEH2C were observed in 31, 3, 47, and 18 families, respectively. In five families, we identified an RNASEH2A or RNASEH2B mutation on one allele only. In one child, the disease occurred because of a de novo heterozygous TREX1 mutation. In 22 families, no mutations were found. Null mutations were common in TREX1, although a specific missense mutation was observed frequently in patients from northern Europe. Almost all mutations in RNASEH2A, RNASEH2B, and RNASEH2C were missense. We identified an RNASEH2C founder mutation in 13 Pakistani families. We also collected clinical data from 123 mutation-positive patients. Two clinical presentations could be delineated: an early-onset neonatal form, highly reminiscent of congenital infection seen particularly with TREX1 mutations, and a later-onset presentation, sometimes occurring after several months of normal development and occasionally associated with remarkably preserved neurological function, most frequently due to RNASEH2B mutations. Mortality was correlated with genotype; 34.3% of patients with TREX1, RNASEH2A, and RNASEH2C mutations versus 8.0% RNASEH2B mutation–positive patients were known to have died (P=.001). Our analysis defines the phenotypic spectrum of AGS and suggests a coherent mutation-screening strategy in this heterogeneous disorder. Additionally, our data indicate that at least one further AGS-causing gene remains to be identified. PMID:17846997

  5. Ready for a world without antibiotics? The Pensières Antibiotic Resistance Call to Action

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Resistance to antibiotics has increased dramatically over the past few years and has now reached a level that places future patients in real danger. Microorganisms such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, which are commensals and pathogens for humans and animals, have become increasingly resistant to third-generation cephalosporins. Moreover, in certain countries, they are also resistant to carbapenems and therefore susceptible only to tigecycline and colistin. Resistance is primarily attributed to the production of beta-lactamase genes located on mobile genetic elements, which facilitate their transfer between different species. In some rare cases, Gram-negative rods are resistant to virtually all known antibiotics. The causes are numerous, but the role of the overuse of antibiotics in both humans and animals is essential, as well as the transmission of these bacteria in both the hospital and the community, notably via the food chain, contaminated hands, and between animals and humans. In addition, there are very few new antibiotics in the pipeline, particularly for Gram-negative bacilli. The situation is slightly better for Gram-positive cocci as some potent and novel antibiotics have been made available in recent years. A strong and coordinated international programme is urgently needed. To meet this challenge, 70 internationally recognized experts met for a two-day meeting in June 2011 in Annecy (France and endorsed a global call to action ("The Pensières Antibiotic Resistance Call to Action". Bundles of measures that must be implemented simultaneously and worldwide are presented in this document. In particular, antibiotics, which represent a treasure for humanity, must be protected and considered as a special class of drugs.

    Full Text Available Although essentially not all therapies need drug intervention, drugs is still an important components in health sector, either in preventive, curative, rehabilitative or promotion efforts. Hence the access to drugs is a main problem, either in international or national scale even to the smallest unit. The problem on access to drugs is very complicated and cannot be separated especially from pharmacy management problems; moreover in general from the overall lack of policy development and effective of health policy, and also the implementation process. With the policy development and effective health policy, rational drug uses, sufficient health service budget so a country can overcome the health problems. Besides infrastructures, regulations, distribution and cultural influences; the main obstacles for drug access is drugs affordability if the price of drugs is an important part and determined by many factors, especially the drug status whether is still patent orgenerics that significantly decrease cost of health cares and enhance the drugs affordability. The determination of essential drug prices in developing countries should based on equity principal so that poor people pay cheaper and could afford the essential drugs. WHO predicts two third of world population can not afford the essential drugs in which in developing countries, some are because of in efficient budget allocation in consequence of drug distribution management, including incorrect selection and allocation and also irrational uses. In part these could be overcome by enhancing performances on the allocation pharmacy needs, including the management of information system, inventory management, stock management and the distribution. Key words: access, drugs, essential drugs, generic drugs

    Availability of a proper vascular access is a basic condition for a proper extracorporeal replacement in end-stage chronic renal failure. However, biological factors, management and other problems, may variously condition their middle-long term survival. Therefore, personal experience of over 25 years has been critically reviewed in order to obtain useful information. In particular "hard" situations necessitating complex procedures have been examined but, if possible, preserving the peripherical vascular features.

    Full Text Available La recherche sur laquelle repose cet article analyse la place des coutumes des marges de l’apprentissage universitaire dans la construction du personnage du médecin spécialiste français, dans lequel l’internat et les manières à y apprendre sont centrales. Environ cent entretiens ethnographiques avec des spécialistes d’âges et d’exercices variés ont été menés. L’internat concerne les futurs spécialistes, reçus au concours de l’internat qui donne accès, après 6 années d’étude communes à tous les médecins, à une formation propre de 4-6 années supplémentaires, pendant laquelle ils apprennent non seulement leur profession auprès de malades et de patrons, mais aussi les manières constitutives du personnage du spécialiste, en fréquentant internes et internats. Chaque midi à table, les internes acquièrent ces manières de salle de garde. À travers l’apprentissage de règles contraignantes et souvent paradoxales, de savoir-dire et de savoir-faire, autrement dit de savoir-être propres au groupe, ils vont acquérir une compétence spécifique : nouveau calendrier, nouvelle langue, nouveau code comportemental, nouvelle hiérarchie, nouveaux devoirs… dont le non-respect est sanctionné par des gages codifiés. La mise en place de rituels collectifs fondant la communauté, l’application de codes précis, la valorisation de modèles identificatoires permettent à chacun de prendre place, de s’impliquer selon une organisation concentrique, de donner sens aux expériences en cours en les intégrant dans une logique initiatique. Cet apprentissage se singularise par le fait qu’il coexiste avec celui d’un langage médical parfois complexe, d’attitudes professionnelles codifiées, d’un sens de la hiérarchie aiguisé, d’un code de déontologie rigoureux… autant de caractéristiques propres au monde hospitalo-universitaire.This paper is based on a research on the importance of customs learned in the

  12. Public perception on the benefits and risks of nuclear power plants. A simplified study; Um estudo simplificado da percepcao publica dos beneficios e riscos de centrais termonucleares

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ribeiro Junior, Joaquim Apparecido

    2007-07-01

    Public acceptance of the nuclear based electricity generation depends on many variables that can be affected by circumstances and interests, which although seemingly not close to the issue, can strongly influence the final outcome. Explicit or consented positions assumed by opinion makers and some segments of society are subject to episodic waves of interaction through the media and they permeate to the public in a process that is very complex to be fully understood. The modeling of such process is a very complicated undertaking, and gives no assurance of practical results concerning to what, how and who, should be given prominence in the interactions with the media and the general public. In this context, the risk communication has assumed a leading role and, as a consequence, most of the interaction with the public has been done with both defensive language and content. This study has tried a simple and practical approach to the problem, in such a way as to gather some interesting subsidies to treat this issue in a different way. The basic assumption is that in a similar way as individuals base their decision to acquire a new good or service on a 'intuitive' cost-benefit judgment, society (as a collection of individuals) also manifest their acceptance (or not) with respect to industrial installations and undertakings by comparing risks and benefits according to their perception. An exploratory survey was carried out in a few high schools, colleges and MBA courses in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. A first part was aimed to catch and understand the public perception of: the intrinsic value of the electric energy, the need to universalize the access to electricity, nuclear plants, the acceptance deficit of nuclear power as compared to other sources of energy, the benefits a nuclear plant can bring and who does and who does not deserves credibility to speak about nuclear plants. The second part was addressed to grasp a picture of more relevant distortions

    This study compiles the results from an examination of mycorrhizae on root samples from Tuber melanosporum truffières in New Zealand. Samples were taken over 5 years from 328 trees in 43 truffières established with nursery-inoculated trees. Mycorrhizae were analysed using a combination of morphological and molecular techniques, focusing on the identification of Tuber species. Results show that 49% of the trees, and nearly 90% of the truffières, retained T. melanosporum mycorrhizae up to 21 years after planting. Tuber mycorrhizae with spiky cystidia were found on 26.9% of the tested trees: Tuber brumale (5.5%), Tuber maculatum (10.7%), and unidentified Tuber species (10.7%), and were detected in 67% of the truffières tested. T. brumale was found in 28% and T. maculatum in 35% of the truffières. In 56% of the truffières, T. melanosporum was found to occur with spiky Tuber species. The existence of T. brumale and T. maculatum in the same truffière was recorded only once. Forty-four percent of trees examined had Scleroderma-like (SCL) mycorrhizae and 50% of trees hosted other ectomycorrhizal species (OE). For all categories of mycorrhizal species examined, the variation between truffières was greater than variation within each truffière. Overall results indicate that Corylus avellana tends to be more receptive to mycorrhizae of Tuber species than Quercus robur but is not necessarily more productive. In productive truffières, Q. robur appears to host SCL mycorrhizae more often than C. avellana. This is the first study of its scale to analyse the mycorrhizal species associated with T. melanosporum truffières in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Full Text Available Subject analysis of the potential of spontaneous combustion in coal layers with analytical and numerical methods has been always considered as a difficult task because of the complexity of the coal behavior and the number of factors influencing it. Empirical methods, due to accounting for certain and specific factors, have not accuracy and efficiency for all positions. The Rock Engineering Systems (RES approach as a systematic method for analyzing and classifying is proposed in engineering projects. The present study is concerned with employing the RES approach to categorize coal spontaneous combustion in coal regions. Using this approach, the interaction of parameters affecting each other in an equal scale on the coal spontaneous combustion was evaluated. The Intrinsic, geological and mining characteristics of coal seams were studied in order to identifying important parameters. Then, the main stages of implementation of the RES method i.e. interaction matrix formation, coding matrix and forming a list category were performed. Later, an index of Coal Spontaneous Combustion Potential (CSCPi was determined to format the mathematical equation. Then, the obtained data related to the intrinsic, geological and mining, and special index were calculated for each layer in the case study (Pashkalat coal region, Iran. So, the study offers a perfect and comprehensive classification of the layers. Finally, by using the event of spontaneous combustion occurred in Pashkalat coal region, an initial validation for this systematic approach in the study area was conducted, which suggested relatively good concordance in Pashkalat coal region.

Teve como objetivo identificar os dilemas éticos da enfermagem a partir de revisão de literatura em publicações da área, no período de 2002 a 2006. Localizou-se quarenta publicações, das quais foram selecionadas dezessete. A análise dos artigos permitiu a organização das categorias: ética, o sistema de saúde e a prática de enfermagem, ética e o ensino-aprendizagem na enfermagem, ética e o cuidado de enfermagem. Percebeu-se que os autores atribuíram às questões éticas abordagem multidimensional, no entanto, considerou-se, aqui, necessária maior atenção a respeito dos aspectos éticos que permeiam a prática de enfermagem. Ficou clara a necessidade de mais estudos que evidenciem novos dilemas éticos vivenciados por enfermeiros, no sentido de contribuir para mudança de atitude, implicando na qualidade da prática profissional.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to conduct a study about the major epistemological approaches, identified in articles on the subject of organizational strategy. The theoretical framework that guided this research is based on the classical definition proposed by Burrell and Morgan (1979 about the four paradigms of social science research. We investigated articles in the area of Administration, Accounting and Tourism, published in Brazilian journals between the years 2001 to 2012, classified as "B1" and "B2" in accordance with Qualis / CAPES criteria. In order to meet this goal, we performed a bibliometric study to map the selected publications. As a result of this study, there was a predominance of the functionalist paradigm, as well as a reduced presence of articles which explain their theoretical and methodological choices as the foundation for their empirical studies.Este artigo tem como objetivo realizar um estudo sobre as principais abordagens epistemológicas, identificadas em artigos sobre o tema da estratégia organizacional.

    Full Text Available Au lendemain de la Révolution, l’histoire de la restauration des mosaïques émerge en France avec la notion de patrimoine et le sentiment d’un héritage commun à tous les citoyens. De plus, il prend aussi sa source dans l’engouement suscité par les découvertes archéologiques italiennes. La diffusion des connaissances et des techniques s’effectue ainsi par le biais d’échanges et de publications que partagent les antiquaires et les milieux de l’érudition qui commencent à s’intéresser aux vestiges conservés sur le territoire français et tentent d’en assurer la sauvegarde. L'étude des travaux de deux érudits, Pierre Schneyder qui fut le premier directeur du musée de Vienne (Isère et François Artaud qui réunit la première collection française de mosaïques antiques au Palais des Arts de Lyon, permet de mettre en avant le rôle d’élites locales qui durent faire face à de multiples contraintes techniques, économiques et institutionnelles, mais qui furent aussi les initiateurs des premières réflexions menées sur la restauration de ce patrimoine archéologique.The restoration of mosaics begins in France with the notion of patrimony and the feeling of a common heritage to all citizens after the Revolution.

  11. The impact of rhetoric and education on the "Res Gestae" of Ammianus Marcellinus

    Science.gov (United States)

    Alvarez, Pablo

    The aim of this thesis is to explore and underline the impact of education and rhetoric on the Res Gestae of Ammianus Marcellinus. I will examine the concept of education in two different aspects. First, I will determine the role of education in regards to Ammianus' early life by describing the cultural climate in the East in the fourth century (Introduction and chapter 1). In this analysis, I will argue that the historian's familiarity with Latin suggests an early acquaintance with the language, indicating that he should not be invariably associated with earlier Greek historians. Second, I will look at how the content of the curriculum is reflected in the RG, explaining how literary sources shaped the composition of the historian's digressions on geography (Chapter 3) and astronomy (Chapter 4). In the past, scholars have examined Ammianus' cultural digressions as an example of the tension between things seen and things read. In my argumentation, I will concentrate on explaining the reasons why Ammianus often tended to rely on literary works rather than observation. I will show that the explanation greatly lies in the content of the curriculum. Concerning the role of rhetoric, I will examine how rhetorical training is articulated in the RG. In Chapter 2, I will show that Ammianus' selection of historical material can be explained in light of the ancient theory of styles. In this context, I will study the role of a rhetorical device designed to raise the emotions of readers by bringing the scene before their eyes: enargeia. In Chapters 3 and 4, I will demonstrate that the cultural digressions in the RG are mostly the product of cultural stereotypes and literary influences. In Chapter 5, I will show the impact of rhetorical treatises on some passages of the RG, arguing that the traditional classification of oratory into deliberative, epideictic and judicial is echoed in both the speeches and the historical narrative. To conclude: the main purpose of my dissertation

  12. Developing HEAT Scores with H-Res Thermal Imagery to Support Urban Energy Efficiency

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hemachandran, Bharanidharan

    As part of The Calgary Community GHG Reduction Plan (2009) The City is seeking an implementation strategy to reduce GHGs and promote low-carbon living, with a focus on improving urban energy efficiency. The most cited obstacle to energy efficiency improvements is the lack of interest from consumers (CUI, 2008). However, Darby (2006) has shown that effective feedback significantly reduces energy consumption. To exploit these findings, the HEAT (Heat Energy Assessment Technologies) Geoweb project integrates high-resolution (H-Res) airborne thermal imagery (TABI 1800) to provide unique energy efficiency feedback to Calgary homeowners in the form of interactive HEAT Maps and Hot Spots (Hay et al., 2011). As a part of the HEAT Phase II program, the goal of this research is to provide enhanced feedback support for urban energy efficiency by meeting two key objectives: (i) develop an appropriate method to define HEAT Scores using TABI 1800 imagery that allows for the comparison of waste heat of one or more houses with all other mapped houses in the community and city, and (ii) develop a multi-scale interactive Geoweb interface that displays the HEAT Scores at City, Community and Residential scales. To achieve these goals, we describe the evolution of three novel HEAT Score techniques based on: (i) a Standardized Score, (ii) the WUFIRTM model and Logistic Regression and (iii ) a novel criteria weighted method that considers: (a) heat transfer through different roofing materials, (b) local climatic conditions and (c) house age and living area attributes. Furthermore, (d) removing or adding houses to analysis based on this 3rd technique, does not affect the HEAT Score of other houses and (e) HEAT Scores can be compared within and across different cities. We also describe how HEAT Scores are incorporated within the HEAT Geoweb architecture. It is envisioned that HEAT Scores will promote energy efficiency among homeowners and urban city planners, as they will quantify and

The development of digital technology in commutations,supported by the increasingly powerful systems of processorcontrol, development of optical communications andtransport technologies in the framework of SDH concepts, arereflected on the access telecommunication networks of the urbanareas. Urban areas are the most profitable regions in telecommunications.In planning of urban optical networks the fact should betaken as a guideline that only a well-organised urban networkwill allow high quality of service provision of the leased cablesto the end points of business customers.Business customers have greater requirements for the networkreliability, flexibility and maintainability, for the sake ofundisturbed telecommunication traffic.The optical medium based technology- FITL (fiber in theloop, provides almost limitless upgrading of the system regardingthe transmission bandwidths, as well as adaptation to allthe future customers' requirements.Considering the increase in the price of installing the coppercables, the prices of electronics and optical components arecontinuously falling. The application of the optical medium isincreasing and becoming more cost-effective, and due to higherreliability of the optical transmission systems the maintenancecosts are reduced.

    Full Text Available Os efeitos de resíduos de plantas cultivadas e seus extratos sobre Sclerotinia sclerotiorum são poucos conhecidos. Três experimentos foram conduzidos, com resíduos de plantas cultivadas e seus extratos etanólicos e suas partições. Resíduos e extratos de culturas de aveia, ervilhaca, feijão, milheto, milho e trigo foram avaliados em condições controladas. Escleródios cobertos com resíduos de aveia, ervilhaca, feijão e milheto não germinaram carpogenicamente. Extratos etanólicos de resíduos de aveia e ervilhaca mostraram-se eficientes na inibição da germinação carpogênica, enquanto que do milheto e do trigo não diferiram da testemunha. Todas as partições de extratos etanólicos avaliadas reduziram a germinação carpogênica. Resíduos vegetais afetaram negativamente o número de apotécios emitidos por escleródio.

    2009-01-01

    We develop a new metric for quantifying end-to-end throughput in multihop wireless networks, which we term random access transport capacity, since the interference model presumes uncoordinated transmissions. The metric quantifies the average maximum rate of successful end-to-end transmissions, multiplied by the communication distance, and normalized by the network area. We show that a simple upper bound on this quantity is computable in closed-form in terms of key network parameters when the number of retransmissions is not restricted and the hops are assumed to be equally spaced on a line between the source and destination. We also derive the optimum number of hops and optimal per hop success probability and show that our result follows the well-known square root scaling law while providing exact expressions for the preconstants as well. Numerical results demonstrate that the upper bound is accurate for the purpose of determining the optimal hop count and success (or outage) probability.

    Weighted factor is given to access control policies to express the importance of policy and its effect on access control decision. According to this weighted access control framework, a trustworthiness model for access request is also given. In this model, we give the measure of trustworthiness factor to access request, by using some idea of uncertainty reasoning of expert system, present and prove the parallel propagation formula of request trustworthiness factor among multiple policies, and get the final trustworthiness factor to decide whether authorizing. In this model, authorization decision is given according to the calculation of request trustworthiness factor, which is more understandable, more suitable for real requirement and more powerful for security enhancement than traditional methods. Meanwhile the finer access control granularity is another advantage.

    Fertile soils are central resources for the production of biomass and provision of food and energy. A growing world population and latest climate targets lead to an increasing demand for both, food and bio-energy, which require preserving and improving the long-term productivity of soils as a bio-economic resource. At the same time, other soil functions and ecosystem services need to be maintained. To render soil management sustainable, we need to establish a scientific knowledge base about complex soil system processes that allows for the development of model tools to quantitatively predict the impact of a multitude of management measures on soil functions. This, finally, will allow for the provision of site-specific options for sustainable soil management. To face this challenge, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research recently launched the funding program "Soil as a Natural Resource for the Bio-Economy - BonaRes". In a joint effort, ten collaborative projects and the coordinating BonaRes Centre are engaged to close existing knowledge gaps for a profound and systemic understanding of soil functions and their sensitivity to soil management. This presentation provides an overview of the concept of the BonaRes Centre which is responsible for i) setting up a comprehensive data base for soil-related information, ii) the development of model tools aiming to estimate the impact of different management measures on soil functions, and iii) establishing a web-based portal providing decision support tools for a sustainable soil management. A specific focus of the presentation will be laid on the so-called "knowledge-portal" providing the infrastructure for a community effort towards a comprehensive meta-analysis on soil functions as a basis for future model developments.

    Full Text Available Listeria monocytogenes es un microorganismo zoonótico emergente en la industria de alimentos, resultando degran interés para la salud pública. El objetivo de este trabajo fue validar la técnica de PCR para la detecciónde este microorganismo en carnes crudas de res y pollo. El procedimiento de extracción de ADN fue realizadocon lisozima, proteinasa K y fenol-cloroformo a partir de muestras contaminadas artificialmente. La especificidadde los cebadores LI1 y U1 fue comprobada por la amplificación de una banda de 938pb correspondiente a unfragmento del ADNr 16S; de igual manera los cebadores LF y LR amplificaron una banda del gen hlyA de750pb; lo que permitió la identificación de género (banda 938pb y especie (banda de 750pb respectivamente.Las cepas de los otros géneros bacterianos ensayados no amplificaron ninguna de las bandas específicas. Ellímite de detección para la PCR fue de 102 y 104 UFC/gr para carnes de res y pollo respectivamente; el «GoldStandard» reportó 102 UFC/ml para ambos alimentos. La comparación de la PCR vs., el método «Gold Standard»reportó en carne de pollo una concordancia observada de 98.43%, una sensibilidad del 96.9%, una especificidadde 100%, un valor predictivo positivo del 100% y un valor predictivo negativo del 97%; para la carne de restodos los parámetros anteriores fueron del 100%.

    Full Text Available Cet article analyse le mouvement des Frères musulmans (Ikhwan al-muslimin sous ses différentes formes. Ce mouvement islamique mondial, prosélyte, apparu dans la foulée des deux guerres mondiales, a connu une véritable résurgence, voire une résurrection à partir des années 1980 dans les pays musulmans. Fondé en 1928 par l’Egyptien Hassan al-Banna (1906-1949, le Printemps arabe lui a conféré un souffle nouveau. Le mouvement des Frères musulmans s’est notamment imposé à la tête de l’Etat le plus peuplé du monde arabe, l’Egypte. Là où ce mouvement s’implante, il crée ses propres syndicats, ses associations d’étudiants, de médecins, de travailleurs, ses institutions bancaires islamiques, etc. L’auteur examine plus particulièrement la nature de l’Etat islamique et les traits essentiels de la doctrine politico-religieuse des Frères musulmans et des partis islamistes qui s’en inspirent au Maghreb et ailleurs. Il décrypte leur approche économique, sociale et financière à travers les différentes techniques de la finance islamique. Si le modèle financier musulman est motivé par des considérations de justice sociale (‘adala ijtima’iya et le rejet de l’usure (ribâ, l’auteur considère néanmoins que la vision de ce modèle est essentiellement capitaliste en visant à maximiser les profits. Il appelle à recentrer l’approche des banques islamiques et à les adapter afin qu’elles soient aussi accessibles au financement des petits projets lancés par des déshérités.

Ces zones englobent celles où une exploitation a déjà été entamée (au large de l’île Sakhaline, dans le Timan Péchora du nord et celles en attente d’une implication à venir, comme les mers de Barents et de Péchora, la Sibérie orientale, la péninsule de Yamal, la mer de Kara et le Kamchatka. Les niveaux de production offshore vont probablement être très importants pour la Russie à moyen et long terme, particulièrement du fait que la plupart (sinon la totalité de la production sera exportée et, ce faisant, ouvrira des portes vers de nouveaux marchés. De cette manière, la production offshore introduira une composante nouvelle et très significative à la stratégie d’exportation de la Russie. Toutefois, une implication active des ressources arctiques russes dans le processus global de fourniture d’énergie exige une analyse détaillée et une compréhension claire du potentiel du marché du gaz et de l’huile russes (volumes demandés, calendrier d’exécution, voies de transports; elle exige aussi une attention soutenue de la part du gouvernement sur les points les plus importants qui devront être mis en place, tels que des normes et directives nationales pour l’exploitation des ressources arctiques, une législation stable, transparente et sans surprise à titre de condition préalable nécessaire à des investissements massifs dans l’exploration et la production et, notamment, une implication active de compagnies étrangères dans l’exploitation des ressources arctiques qui pourrait apporter en même temps que les investissements une compétence et une expérience indispensables, une technologie disponible et des principes d’Hygiène, Sécurité et Environnement (HSE.

    To evaluate the persistence of infectious virus after heating, mussels contaminated with a rotavirus strain were prepared following the French recipe moules marinières (mariner's mussels). Rotavirus was then quantified by real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) and a cell culture infectivity assay. Results showed the persistence of infectious virus after 3 min of cooking. After 5 min, when no infectious virus could be detected, the RT-qPCR approach showed a 1-log decrease compared with concentrations detected after 1 min of cooking.

    Full Text Available O tema da qualidade da formação profissional há muito tem dirigido as políticas educacionais e influenciado nas matrizes curriculares dos cursos de graduação no país. Contudo, a questão extrapola este espaço e envolve, cada vez mais, as experiências extraclasses. Deste modo a extensão, pesquisa e publicação universitárias assumem papel relevante para a melhoria do ensino. Nesta entrevista o Professor e Pesquisador Livre Docente José Roberto Rus Perez nos fala da importância da pesquisa e publicação na formação de ensino superior. Seu relato de 30 anos de experiência no Núcleo de Estudos em Políticas Públicas (NEEP/UNICAMP evidencia alguns pontos fundamentais para que o ensino de graduação experiencie a pesquisa e divulgação, através da publicação, como pilares de sustentação do bom ensino. Ele também demonstra a estreita relação entre a formação na graduação e as dificuldades vividas na pós-graduação no país, sobretudo pela carência da pesquisa que é, sempre, tão necessária ao trabalho do profissional no mercado ou no setor público, na licenciatura ou no bacharelado. Cabe ressaltar também que o professor José Roberto Rus Perez é membro do Conselho Consultivo Nacional da Revista Eventos Pedagógicos – REP’s.

  18. Resíduos culturais e resultado de análise de solo coletado com diferentes amostradores no sistema de plantio direto

    Escosteguy Pedro Alexandre Varella

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available Uma das características do sistema de plantio direto é o acúmulo de resíduos culturais na superfície do solo. Embora as recomendações técnicas preconizem a remoção desses resíduos antes da amostragem de solo, isso não ocorre quando a amostragem é efetuada utilizando o quadriciclo. Os resíduos culturais também podem ser misturados com a amostra de solo quando esse é amostrado com o trado manual e esses resíduos não são removidos da superfície do solo. Neste trabalho, estudou-se a influência dos resíduos culturais da superfície do solo nos resultados da análise de solo sob plantio direto. Amostraram-se solos com e sem a remoção de resíduos culturais da superfície. Esses procedimentos foram testados em solos contendo baixo e alto teor de argila, amostrados com o trado calador e o quadriciclo, após o cultivo de soja e milho. A influência dos resíduos culturais no resultado da análise de solo foi, em geral, pouco expressiva, variando com o tipo de amostrador, de resíduo e teor de argila do solo. Nas amostras coletadas com o quadriciclo, foi possível detectar diferenças no teor de matéria orgânica (MO em função dos procedimentos de amostragem testados, entretanto, isso não ocorreu nas amostras coletadas com o calador. Na presença dos resíduos culturais, o teor de MO aumentou em 4g kg-1 (solo com baixo teor de argila e cultivado com soja e em 5g kg-1 (solo com alto teor de argila e cultivado com milho. Com exceção dos teores de MO, a presença dos resíduos culturais não interferiu na interpretação dos outros atributos analisados.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: A aterosclerose é uma doença inflamatória crônica de origem multifatorial que ocorre em resposta à agressão endotelial. O fungo Monascus ruber apresenta atividade hipocolesterolêmica e polifenóis presentes no resíduo de café apresentam atividade antioxidante, podendo auxiliar na prevenção de doenças cardiovasculares. O resíduo de café possui quantidade significativa de açúcares fermentescíveis, constituindo-se em substrato apropriado para o cultivo de fungos. OBJETIVO: O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o efeito dos resíduos de café seco e fermentado por Monascus ruber no metabolismo lipídico de camundongos knockout Apo E. MÉTODOS: O ensaio biológico foi realizado com 30 camundongos knockout para o gene Apo E, divididos em cinco grupos e submetidos a diferentes tratamentos. Foi realizada a prospecção fitoquímica e quantificação de compostos fenólicos dos resíduos fermentado e sem fermentar. O soro dos animais foi analisado utilizando kits enzimáticos e o tecido aórtico incluso em parafina e corado com H/E para realização da análise histopatológica. RESULTADOS: O resíduo de café sem fermentar 2%, em relação ao grupo controle, diminuiu em 42% o nível sérico de triacilgliceróis e em aproximadamente 41% a fração VLDL-c. Os grupos dos animais alimentados com 10% de resíduo não fermentado e 2% de resíduo fermentado diminuíram a área de lesão 10,5% e 15,4%, respectivamente, quando comparados ao controle. O resíduo fermentado apresentou um teor de compostos fenólicos superior ao resíduo não fermentado. CONCLUSÃO: O presente estudo mostra que a fermentação do resíduo de café apresenta potencial efeito benéfico sobre as doenças cardiovasculares, especialmente a aterosclerose.

  20. Controlling Access to RDF Graphs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Flouris, Giorgos; Fundulaki, Irini; Michou, Maria; Antoniou, Grigoris

    One of the current barriers towards realizing the huge potential of Future Internet is the protection of sensitive information, i.e., the ability to selectively expose (or hide) information to (from) users depending on their access privileges. Given that RDF has established itself as the de facto standard for data representation over the Web, our work focuses on controlling access to RDF data. We present a high-level access control specification language that allows fine-grained specification of access control permissions (at triple level) and formally define its semantics. We adopt an annotation-based enforcement model, where a user can explicitly associate data items with annotations specifying whether the item is accessible or not. In addition, we discuss the implementation of our framework, propose a set of dimensions that should be considered when defining a benchmark to evaluate the different access control enforcement models and present the results of our experiments conducted on different Semantic Web platforms.

    2015-02-17

    Atomic memory access requests are handled using a variety of systems and methods. According to one example method, a data-processing circuit having an address-request generator that issues requests to a common memory implements a method of processing the requests using a memory-access intervention circuit coupled between the generator and the common memory. The method identifies a current atomic-memory access request from a plurality of memory access requests. A data set is stored that corresponds to the current atomic-memory access request in a data storage circuit within the intervention circuit. It is determined whether the current atomic-memory access request corresponds to at least one previously-stored atomic-memory access request. In response to determining correspondence, the current request is implemented by retrieving data from the common memory. The data is modified in response to the current request and at least one other access request in the memory-access intervention circuit.

Esses resíduos foram colhidos em três estádios do desenvolvimento reprodutivo do sorgo: florescimento, enchimento de grãos e maturação. Os tratamentos estudados constaram da deposição desses resíduos na superfície do solo ou da sua total incorporação na proporção de 4 g kg-1 de matéria seca no solo (LEd, fase cerrado. Nos tratamentos com planta, mantiveram-se três plantas de soja (cv. Doko em vasos com capacidade para 3 kg de solo. Nos tratamentos sem planta, o solo foi amostrado semanalmente para avaliação das formas de N. Após a colheita da soja, amostras de planta e de solo, de cada tratamento, foram retiradas para determinar a absorção total de N e a influência desses resíduos no N disponível extraído com KCl 2 mol L-1. Os resultados revelaram que alguns resíduos culturais de sorgo afetaram, independentemente do estádio de colheita, o desenvolvimento da soja, a absorção de N, o peso de nódulos e a biomassa microbiana do solo. Tais efeitos também foram dependentes do método de incorporação do resíduo. O teor de carbono imobilizado pela biomassa foi maior quando os resíduos de sorgo foram distribuídos na superfície do solo.

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available Long interspersed elements 1 (LINE-1 occupy at least 17% of the human genome and are its only active autonomous retrotransposons. However, the host factors that regulate LINE-1 retrotransposition are not fully understood. Here, we demonstrate that the Aicardi-Goutières syndrome gene product SAMHD1, recently revealed to be an inhibitor of HIV/simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV infectivity and neutralized by the viral Vpx protein, is also a potent regulator of LINE-1 and LINE-1-mediated Alu/SVA retrotransposition. We also found that mutant SAMHD1s of Aicardi-Goutières syndrome patients are defective in LINE-1 inhibition. Several domains of SAMHD1 are critical for LINE-1 regulation. SAMHD1 inhibits LINE-1 retrotransposition in dividing cells. An enzymatic active site mutant SAMHD1 maintained substantial anti-LINE-1 activity. SAMHD1 inhibits ORF2p-mediated LINE-1 reverse transcription in isolated LINE-1 ribonucleoproteins by reducing ORF2p level. Thus, SAMHD1 may be a cellular regulator of LINE-1 activity that is conserved in mammals.

    Full Text Available Descreve-se o aproveitamento do resíduo do desfibramento das folhas de Agave sisalana, como um larvicida para o combate a mosquitos transmissores de doenças tropicais. Durante 24 horas, larvas de Aedes aegypti e Culex quinquefasciatus foram expostas a concentrações diferentes do extrato da planta para determinar as concentrações letais. Para A. aegypti foi constatada a CL50 em 322ppm e para C. quinquefasciatus em 183ppm. Foi investigada a ação de saponinas existentes na planta, ficando evidenciado que o resíduo de A. sisalana é ativo através da interação de vários dos seus componentes. Este extrato poderá ser utilizado em campo, na concentração de 100ppm para C. quinquefasciatus com um aumento do tempo de exposição para três dias, obtendo-se uma mortalidade de 100% das larvas. Este produto, porém, não é recomendado para o controle de A. aegypti, devido à necessidade de uma alta concentração para a obtenção de 100% de mortalidade das larvas e ao fato destas se desenvolverem preferencialmente em água potável.

Les analyses dans le cadre de ce travail révèlent également d’importants résultats. D’abord, la présence de la banque au sein de la firme que se soit en tant que créancière ou actionnaire, est coûteuse pour la firme et engendre la destruction de la valeur de cette dernière. De surcroît, les variables, opportunités de croissance, performance, actionnaire majoritaire, dette bancaire, banque actionnaire ainsi que le ratio de rentabilité exercent une influence importante sur la motivation des banques à acquérir des participations et à accorder des crédits aux firmes non financières. Enfin, dans le contexte Tunisien, la relation Banque-Entreprise accroît les conflits d’intérêts au détriment des avantages de surveillance, ce qui affaiblit l’efficacité de banque comme moniteur et entraîne la destruction de la valeur de la firme.

    Full Text Available This article presents the project that I led for HEFCE on the implications of OA (open access for monographs and other long-form research publications. The likely requirement that books should be OA if submitted to the REF (Research Excellence Framework after next means that OA development must be based on an understanding of the importance of the monograph in the AHSS (arts, humanities and social sciences as well as the challenges involved in making the transition to online OA. The project focused on three issues and each is summarized in turn in the article: What is the place of the monograph and other long-form publications in AHSS disciplines that makes it so important? What is happening to the monograph and is there a crisis as some suggest? What are the issues involved in moving monographs into a digital and OA environment – not just the challenge of effective business models but also many other aspects of sustaining and enhancing the qualities of the monograph? These include third-party rights, technical challenges, licences and the need for international collaboration.

  2. Access to postacute rehabilitation.

    Buntin, Melinda Beeuwkes

    2007-11-01

    Each year, more than 10 million Medicare beneficiaries are discharged from acute care hospitals into postacute care (PAC) settings, including inpatient rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and homes with services from home health agencies. These beneficiaries include very frail and vulnerable elders, many of whom have suffered from an acute event such as a stroke or a fall resulting in hip fracture, all of whom are judged unable to return to their homes without further care. Whether beneficiaries receive PAC and the type and intensity of care they receive is influenced not only by clinical factors, but by nonclinical factors including provider supply and financing, especially Medicare's methods of payment. This article provides a definition of PAC and discusses the wide cross-sectional variation in the use of postacute rehabilitation. It then discusses recent changes to PAC provider payment that have raised concerns about access to postacute rehabilitation, trends in the use of PAC, and what these trends imply about the appropriateness of PAC as it is now delivered. It concludes by identifying issues about the policy and research implications of recent developments and the PAC literature reviewed.

    2011-05-01

    A new semester begins, and your students enter the classroom for the first time. You notice a student sitting in a wheelchair or walking with assistance from a cane. Maybe you see a student with a guide dog or carrying a Braille computer. Another student gestures "hello” but then continues hand motions, and you realize the person is actually signing. You wonder why another student is using an electronic device to speak. Think this can't happen in your class? According to the U.S. Census, one out of every five Americans has a disability. And some disabilities, such as autism, dyslexia and arthritis, are considered "invisible” disabilities. This means you have a high probability that one of your students will have a disability. As an astronomy instructor, you have the opportunity to reach a wide variety of learners by using creative teaching strategies. I will share some suggestions on how to make astronomy and your part of the universe more accessible for everyone.

    Full Text Available O uso intensivo de agrotóxicos em culturas de tomates tem causado preocupações quanto à provável contaminação do produto final. Este trabalho teve como objetivo monitorar, por dois anos consecutivos, em quatro propriedades de uma área altamente tecnificada, o uso de agrotóxicos em tomate irrigado durante seu desenvolvimento, quantificar os resíduos dos principais princípios ativos utilizados, e avaliar o grau de contaminação dos frutos colhidos. Foram analisados metamidofós, clorpirifós, captan, clorotalonil, endosulfan, lambda-cialotrina, e cobre. Para avaliar o grau de contaminação dos frutos foi validado um método de análise de resíduos múltiplos capaz de quantificar esses compostos. Os resíduos encontrados foram de fungicidas e inseticidas aplicados nas fases de frutificação e maturação: captan, 0,35 mg/kg, na Fazenda 2; clorotalonil, 0,16 mg/kg e 0,95 mg/kg, nas Fazendas 1 e 2, respectivamente; lambda-cialotrina, 0,03 mg/kg, na Fazenda 2; cobre, 2,03 mg/kg, 3,75 mg/kg e 1,44mg/kg, nas Fazendas 1, 2 e 3, respectivamente, e 0,95 mg/kg, 1,70 mg/kg e 2,31 mg/kg, na Fazenda 4. Não ocorreram resíduos dos inseticidas organofosforados, aplicados principalmente durante o desenvolvimento vegetativo da cultura. Não houve contaminação dos tomates pelos agrotóxicos analisados. Os resíduos que devem ser monitorados são os dos agrotóxicos aplicados na fase de maturação da cultura.The intensive use of pesticide in tomato crops have been causing concern about a possible contamination of the final product.

  10. Querying Schemas With Access Restrictions

    CERN Document Server

    Benedikt, Michael; Ley, Clemens

    2012-01-01

    We study verification of systems whose transitions consist of accesses to a Web-based data-source. An access is a lookup on a relation within a relational database, fixing values for a set of positions in the relation. For example, a transition can represent access to a Web form, where the user is restricted to filling in values for a particular set of fields. We look at verifying properties of a schema describing the possible accesses of such a system. We present a language where one can describe the properties of an access path, and also specify additional restrictions on accesses that are enforced by the schema. Our main property language, AccLTL, is based on a first-order extension of linear-time temporal logic, interpreting access paths as sequences of relational structures. We also present a lower-level automaton model, Aautomata, which AccLTL specifications can compile into. We show that AccLTL and A-automata can express static analysis problems related to "querying with limited access patterns" that h...

    2009-08-01

    The pathological isoform of the prion protein (PrP(res)) can serve as a marker for prion diseases, but more practical tests are needed for preclinical diagnosis and sensitive detection of many prion infections. Previously we showed that the quaking-induced conversion (QuIC) assay can detect sub-femtogram levels of PrP(res) in scrapie-infected hamster brain tissue and distinguish cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) samples from normal and scrapie-infected hamsters. We now report the adaptation of the QuIC reaction to prion diseases of medical and agricultural interest: human variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) and sheep scrapie. PrP(res)-positive and -negative brain homogenates from humans and sheep were discriminated within 1-2 days with a sensitivity of 10-100 fg PrP(res). More importantly, in as little as 22 h we were able to distinguish CSF samples from scrapie-infected and uninfected sheep. These results suggest the presence of prions in CSF from scrapie-infected sheep. This new method enables the relatively rapid and sensitive detection of human CJD and sheep scrapie PrP(res) and may facilitate the development of practical preclinical diagnostic and high-throughput interference tests.

  14. Mapping the potential for decentralized energy generation based on RES in Western Balkans

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Schneider Daniel R.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Although the countries of the Western Balkans are mostly electrified, there are still regions which do not have access to the electricity network or where the network capacity is insufficient. For the most part such areas are under special care of the state (i. e. underdeveloped, devastated by war, depopulated, on islands or in mountainous regions. Since the decentralized energy generation covers a broad range of technologies, including many renewable energy technologies that provide small-scale power at sites close to the users, such concept could be of interest for these locations. This paper identifies the areas in Western Balkans where such systems could be applied. Consideration is given to geographical locations as well as possible applications. Wind, hydro, solar photovoltaic, and biomass conversion systems were taken into consideration. Since the renewable energy sources data for Western Balkans region are rather scarce, the intention was to give a survey of the present situation and an estimate of future potential for decentralized energy generation based on renewable energy sources. The decentralized energy generation based on renewable energy sources in Western Balkans will find its niche easier for the users that will produce electricity for their own needs and for the users located in remote rural areas (off-grid applications.

No entanto, informações relativas à produção de fitomassa e decomposição de resíduos dessas espécies ainda são escassas para a região, sobretudo para espécies consorciadas. O experimento foi conduzido em Não-Me-Toque, RS, em um Latossolo Vermelho distrófico típico, avaliando-se nove tratamentos, sendo quatro constituídos por plantas de cobertura em culturas puras [centeio (Secale cereale L., aveia-preta (Avena strigosa Schreb, ervilha forrageira (Pisum sativum subesp. arvense e nabo forrageiro (Raphanus sativus L. var. oleiferus Metzg] e cinco por consórcios [(centeio + ervilha forrageira, centeio + nabo forrageiro, aveia + nabo forrageiro, centeio + ervilhaca (Vicia sativa L. e aveia + ervilhaca]. A dinâmica de decomposição dos resíduos culturais das plantas de cobertura foi avaliada em bolsas de decomposição, as quais foram distribuídas na superfície do solo e coletadas aos sete, 14, 21, 28, 57, 117 e 164 dias. O consórcio entre leguminosas e crucífera com gramíneas resultou em maior produção de fitomassa em relação ao cultivo destas em culturas puras. O nitrogênio (N acumulado na parte aérea dos consórcios formados por ervilha forrageira e nabo com centeio e aveia foi semelhante ao da leguminosa e da crucífera em culturas puras e superou em 220,4 % os valores de N observados para as gramíneas em culturas puras. Por meio do consórcio entre as espécies de cobertura foi possível reduzir a taxa de decomposição dos resíduos culturais, em comparação com as culturas puras da leguminosa e da crucífera.

    Adenosine deaminases acting on RNA (ADARs) catalyze the hydrolytic deamination of adenosine to inosine in double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) and thereby potentially alter the information content and structure of cellular RNAs. Notably, although the overwhelming majority of such editing events occur in transcripts derived from Alu repeat elements, the biological function of non-coding RNA editing remains uncertain. Here, we show that mutations in ADAR1 (also known as ADAR) cause the autoimmune disorder Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS). As in Adar1-null mice, the human disease state is associated with upregulation of interferon-stimulated genes, indicating a possible role for ADAR1 as a suppressor of type I interferon signaling. Considering recent insights derived from the study of other AGS-related proteins, we speculate that ADAR1 may limit the cytoplasmic accumulation of the dsRNA generated from genomic repetitive elements.

  13. Validation of SSiB Model over Grassland with CHeRES Field Experiment Data in 2001

    The Simplified Simple Biosphere model (SSiB) is validated in off-line simulations against field measurements in the summer of 2001 from the China Heavy Rainfall Experiment and Study (CHeRES) over a grassland site located in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. When initialized and driven by the observed atmospheric forcing, the model reproduced the observed surface heat fluxes and surface skin temperature realistically. The model was also able to well simulate the variation of soil water content. The sensitivity experiments found that the leaf reflectance was the most significant parameter in improving the estimation of surface albedo during both wet and dry periods. This study suggests that the model is capable of simulating the physical processes and of assessing the impact of biophysical parameters that relate to land-atmosphere interactions over the eastern Asian monsoon regions, which is crucial for mesoscale atmospheric models.

  14. The Theos/ComRes survey into public perception of Darwinism in the UK: a recipe for confusion.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Baker, Sylvia

    2012-04-01

    A survey of the general public in the UK, conducted in 2008, suggested that more than half of the British population are unconvinced by Darwinism. That survey, conducted by the polling company ComRes on behalf of the theological think-tank Theos, reported its full findings in March 2009 and found them to be "complex and confused." This paper argues that the confusion identified may have been partly engendered by the way in which the survey questionnaire was constructed and that the survey itself, not simply its respondents, was confused. A source of the confusion, it is argued, could be found, first, in the definitions used for the four positions of young earth creationism, theistic evolution, atheistic evolution and intelligent design. Second, a failure to define the key terms "evolution" and "science," used in some of the survey questions, resulted in responses that were difficult to interpret.

    Full Text Available O interesse pela preservação dos recursos naturais e a busca pelo desenvolvimento sustentável tem despertado interesse de um grande número de pesquisadores visando obter materiais de construção não convencionais. Dentre essas possibilidades, destacam-se os resíduos produzidos pela construção civil e pela indústria de beneficiamento de granito, em virtude do volume gerado e os impactos ambientais do seu descarte inadequado. Este trabalho tem como objetivo estudar a durabilidade das argamassas alternativas incorporadas com resíduos de construção civil e da serragem do granito. Para quantificar a durabilidade dos materiais estudados, foram realizados ensaios de envelhecimento natural e ensaios de envelhecimento acelerado através de ciclos de molhagem e secagem, visando simular condições de utilização e avaliar sua degradação. Nos estudos da durabilidade foram utilizados traços de argamassas para alvenaria de elevação, com percentagens de substituição, em peso, da cal por resíduo de 30% e 50%. Os resultados para o envelhecimento natural evidenciaram o comprometimento da durabilidade do material após 60 dias com redução no comportamento mecânico, sendo os melhores resultados para os corpos-de-prova com 30% e 50% de resíduo de construção. No envelhecimento acelerado, para os tratamentos adotados, os resultados evidenciaram a ação da formação de silicoaluminatos de cálcio e potássio que favoreceram um aumento do comportamento mecânico e, além disso, não foi observado o comprometimento da sua durabilidade.The preservation of natural resources and search for sustainable development are increase in interest by the researchers with the aim to obtain knowledge of non conventional materials.

    towards the oilfield industry [3]. It is now possible to have thin cement slurries at ambient temperature and still viscous slurries at bottom hole temperature, as desired. The reversibility of the phenomenon joint to the shear thinning properties of the polymer solution are adding a plus for cement slurries and drilling fluids designs. The thermoassociative phenomenon was also studied by Small Angle Neutrons Scattering (SANS using copolymers composed by a deuterated polyacrylate backbone and protonated polyethylene oxide grafts. The scattering properties of our system were studied by varying the temperature, the salinity and the polymer concentration of the solution. A good agreement between the microscopic characteristics of the solutions and their rheological properties was found. Dans différents secteurs de l'industrie, les polymères hydrosolubles sont couramment utilisés comme agents épaississants pour contrôler la rhéologie des fluides aqueux. Cependant, leurs propriétés s'affaiblissent lorsque que la température augmente. Pour faire face à ce problème, le concept de polymères hydrosolubles et thermoassociatifsa été développé. De tels systèmes amphiphiles de ce genre peuvent être obtenus en greffant sur une structure hydrophile des chaînes latérales qui ne sont plus hydrosolubles au-dessus d'une température critique inférieure de solution (Lower Critical Solution Temperature = LCST. Des solutions semi-diluées de ces copolymères présentent des propriétés d'épaississement réversibles lorsque la température augmente et atteint une valeur critique proche de la température LCST des chaines latérales. Ce comportement peut être corrélé à l'agrégation des greffons au-dessus de leur température LCST en microdomaines hydrophobesconduisant à la formation d'un réseau tridimensionnel. À des températures plus élevées, la viscosité de la solution cisaillée à vitesse constante atteint une valeur maximum. Ceci peut être interprété en

    Full Text Available Although there are many studies of association of polymers and surfactants in solution, much less is known about their association at surfaces. In this paper, several examples will be presented : water insoluble polymers spread at the surface of surfactant aqueous solutions, water soluble polymers adsorbed with the surfactant at the surface of the solution. Examples of the first case will be given with PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane spread onto monolayers of surfactants of different chain lengths. The penetration of the polymer into the surfactant layer has been studied with different techniques (surface tension, ellipsometry, neutron reflectivity. Examples of the second case will be given with two different polyelectrolytes (polystyrene sulfonate PSS and polyacrylamide sulfonate PAMPS and various surfactants (ionic and nonionic. Surface tension measurements of the dilute solutions with a nonionic surfactant (C10E5 show that there is a strong interaction with PSS and no interaction with PAMPS. This is probably due to the larger hydrophobicity of the polymer backbone. X-Ray scattering and electron microscopy experiments on lamellar phases with PSS show that the polymer chains are embedded into the surfactant bilayers. The interaction of PSS and PAMPS with a cationic surfactant (DTAB, opposite charge has also been studied by surface tension and ellipsometry. An extended polymer-surfactant surface complex is formed at the surface of the solutions. Malgré de nombreux travaux sur les associations entre polymères et tensioactifs en solution, les associations localisées sur des surfaces ont été beaucoup moins étudiées. Dans cette présentation différents exemples seront présentés : des polymères non solubles dans l'eau étalés à la surface de solutions aqueuses de tensioactifs, des polymères hydrosolubles adsorbés avec des molécules de tensioactifs à la surface de la solution.

    Yang, Jianyi; Wang, Yan; Zhang, Yang

    2016-02-22

    Computer-based structure prediction becomes a major tool to provide large-scale structure models for annotating biological function of proteins. Information of residue-level accuracy and thermal mobility (or B-factor), which is critical to decide how biologists utilize the predicted models, is however missed in most structure prediction pipelines. We developed ResQ for unified residue-level model quality and B-factor estimations by combining local structure assembly variations with sequence-based and structure-based profiling. ResQ was tested on 635 non-redundant proteins with structure models generated by I-TASSER, where the average difference between estimated and observed distance errors is 1.4Å for the confidently modeled proteins. ResQ was further tested on structure decoys from CASP9-11 experiments, where the error of local structure quality prediction is consistently lower than or comparable to other state-of-the-art predictors. Finally, ResQ B-factor profile was used to assist molecular replacement, which resulted in successful solutions on several proteins that could not be solved from constant B-factor settings.

    Full Text Available Adolescents represent a large proportion of the population. As they mature and become sexually active, they face more serious health risks. Most face these risks with too little factual information, too little guidance about sexual responsibility and multiple barriers to accessing health care. A typical descriptive and explanatory design was used to determine what the characteristics of an accessible adolescent health service should be. Important results and conclusions that were reached indicate that the adolescent want a medical doctor and a registered nurse to be part of the health team treating them and they want to be served in the language of their choice. Family planning, treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and psychiatric services for the prevention of suicide are services that should be included in an adolescent accessible health service. The provision of health education concerning sexual transmitted diseases and AIDS is a necessity. The service should be available thought out the week (included Saturdays and within easy reach. It is recommended that minor changes in existing services be made, that will contribute towards making a health delivery service an adolescent accessible service. An adolescent accessible health service can in turn make a real contribution to the community’s efforts to improve the health of its adolescents and can prove to be a rewarding professional experience to the health worker.

    One major element of EU's external energy policy is expanding its energy norms and regulations to neighbourhood countries and beyond to achieve its energy policy priorities - safe, secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply. The importance of external energy policy has been acknowledged in the European Union's 2007 'energy package', and Second Strategic Energy Review and the European Commission's Communication on security of energy supply and international cooperation. The EU Renewable Energy Directive provides another element to crossborder cooperation by allowing Member States to fulfil their 2020 renewable energy (RES) targets by implementing joint projects in third countries. Even though the Member States' national renewable energy action plans (NREAPs) to reach their RES targets do not indicate any significant use of this mechanism, the RES Directive acknowledges the importance of renewable energy as part of external energy policy. This report aims at presenting the political framework between the EU and the BETTER project target regions (North Africa, Western Balkans and Turkey) with regards to (renewable) energy and the relevant initiatives and the projects to set the scene for RES joint projects as defined in Article 9 of the RES Directive. The main objectives of this study report are (1) to review energy treaties, agreements, and partnerships to assess their relevance to cooperation mechanism with Third countries; and (2) to analyse the relevance of the recent projects and initiatives to BETTER project and improve and trigger the communication and synergies between BETTER project partners and the relevant projects.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho estuda a viabilidade de utilização de resíduos de materiais cerâmicos como agentes de adsorção de corantes utilizados em indústrias têxteis. Resíduos de materiais cerâmicos, oriundos de quebras de tijolos, azulejos e pisos foram selecionados, triturados e moídos a uma granulometria adequada, o que possibilitou o estudo da influência do tipo de material cerâmico (resíduo e da sua granulometria sobre a adsorção do corante azul de metileno. Os resíduos cerâmicos foram separados em três diferentes granulometrias, fina (0,15 mm < Dfino< 0,30 mm, média (0,30 mm < Dmédio< 1,18 mm e grossa (1,18 mm resíduo de tijolo, em uma granulometria fina, foi possível adsorver aproximadamente 76% do corante azul de metileno presente na amostra ensaiada. No entanto, os resultados também mostram que a absorção de água do material cerâmico pode não ser somente o fator que influencia na adsorção do corante.

    Full Text Available O resíduo da indústria processadora de goiabas vem sendo aplicado em algumas áreas, entretanto não é conhecido o seu efeito na fertilidade do solo. Foi realizado experimento em casa de vegetação, com o objetivo de avaliar o efeito da aplicação do resíduo da indústria processadora de goiabas na fertilidade do solo, tendo como planta-teste o milho. O delineamento experimental utilizado foi em blocos ao acaso, em esquema fatorial 5x2, com quatro repetições, combinando-se cinco doses do resíduo da indústria processadora de goiabas (0; 20; 40; 60 e 80 t ha-1 na presença e ausência de adubação mineral. A adição de resíduo da indústria processadora de goiabas propiciou aumento nos teores de P e K do solo. O resíduo da indústria processadora de goiabas é uma fonte de liberação lenta de N e P para as plantas.The guava processing industry waste (GPIW has been used in some areas, however is not known its effect on soil fertility. A greenhouse experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of GPIW on soil fertility, using corn as testing plant. The experiment was in randomized blocks design combining five GPIW rates (0; 20; 40; 60 and 80 t ha-1 in the absence and the presence of mineral fertilization. The GPIW increased P and K concentration and behaved as a slow release source of N and P for corn.

    Full Text Available Estudou-se a suplementação de dietas de cordeiros confinados com resíduo de biodiesel, utilizando-se 25 ovinos, SRD, machos, castrados, com média de peso de 20kg. O delineamento experimental foi de blocos ao acaso, com cinco repetições por tratamento e esquema de parcelas subdivididas para os dados de biometria. O experimento teve a duração de 70 dias. As dietas eram compostas de 34% de volumoso e 61% de concentrado, à base de milho, soja, minerais e 5% de óleo de dendê ou resíduo de biodiesel, em percentagens crescentes - zero, 25, 50, 75 e 100%. Os animais foram abatidos ao final do experimento para avaliação da carcaça. Foram observados efeitos significativos (P<0,05 de percentagem de inclusão do resíduo, para as variáveis de desempenho e biometria demonstrados nos efeitos lineares crescentes das equações de regressão, assim como para peso da carcaça quente (PCQ -, com médias de 14; 15,92; 16,14; 16,42 e 18,02% - e peso da carcaça fria (PCF -, com médias de 13,12; 14,78; 15,06; 15,70 e 17,25% -, para dietas com, respectivamente, 0, 25, 50, 100% de resíduo de biodiesel de dendê. A utilização de resíduo de biodiesel de dendê na alimentação de cordeiros em crescimento é alternativa para aumentar a densidade energética de suas dietas.

  10. Les polymères auto-renforcés à cristaux liquides Self-Reinforcing Liquid-Crystal Polymers

    Full Text Available Les polymères auto-renforcés à cristaux liquides (PARCL sont des matériaux dont les molécules, des polymères organiques, sont susceptibles de s'auto-orienter les unes par rapport aux autres. Cette propriété leur confère des caractéristiques mécaniques proches de celles des acier: pour des poids plus faibles sans qu'il soit nécessaire d'avoir recours à des fibres renforçantes. Il existe deux types de PARCL: ceux pouvant s'orienter en solution, qualifiés de lyotropiques, et ceux pouvant s'orienter à l'état fondu, appelés thermotropiques. Des fibres en poly (p-phénylène térephtalamide PPT, PARCL de type lyotropique, sont disponibles commercialement et connaissent déjà de nombreuses applications. Les PARCL thermotropiques n'existent pas encore sur le marché mais sont porteurs de nombreux espoirs car ils sont susceptibles d'être moulés et donc de prendre les formes les plus diverses, ce qui n'est pas le cas de ceux de type lyotropique. Self-reinforcing liquid-crystal polymers are materials in which the molecules, i. e. organic polymers, are capable of orienting themselves in relation to one another. This property gives them mechanical characteristics close to those of steels yet of much less weight without having to use reinforcing fibers. There are two types of self-reinforcing liquid-crystal polymers: (i those capable of orienting themselves in solution, called Iyotropic, and (ii those capable of orienting themselves in a molten state, called thermotropic. Poly (p-phenylene terephthalamide fibers, self-reinforcing liquid-crystal polymers of the Iyotropic type, are commercially available and have already found numerous applications. Thermotropic self-reinforcing liquid-crystal polymers are not yet on the market but seem to be very promising because they are capable of being molded and hence of taking on a wide variety of shapes, which is not the case of those of the lyotropic type.

  11. Quelles frontières pour les populations cholanes ? What Boundaries for the Chol Population?

    Full Text Available Les populations de langues cholanes ont eu longtemps une situation centrale, tant géographiquement que culturellement, au sein de l’aire maya. Le paysage actuel présente une situation bien différente : avec une répartition géographique devenue périphérique et une démographie réduite, deux des trois langues cholanes « survivantes » sont déjà classées parmi les langues en danger par l’Unesco. L’objectif de cet article est de rendre compte des principales phases dans l’évolution des frontières spatiales des populations cholanes à travers leurs histoires et de donner quelques clefs pour comprendre leurs mouvements. Une telle étude aurait certes pu se contenter de données historiques, mais des considérations d’ordres ethnologique et linguistique permettent d’affiner les paramètres nécessaires à la caractérisation de ces frontières et d’apprécier les interrelations de ces populations entre elles et avec l’« extérieur ».Chol-language populations long held a central place in the Maya area, both geographically and culturally. The present landscape presents a quite different situation: with a geographic distribution that has become peripheral and a reduced demography, two of the three “surviving” Chol languages have already been classified as endangered by Unesco. The aim of this article is describe the principal phases of the evolution of the spatial boundaries of Chol populations through their stories, and to provide a few keys to understanding their movements. A study of this kind could certainly have been limited to historical data, but ethnological and linguistic observations make it possible to refine the parameters needed for the characterization of these boundaries, and to appreciate the interrelations these populations maintain with each other and with the “outer” world.

    We demonstrate that accessible solitons described by an extended Schrödinger equation with the Laplacian of fractional dimension can exist in strongly nonlocal nonlinear media. The soliton solutions of the model are constructed by two special functions, the associated Legendre polynomials and the Laguerre polynomials in the fraction-dimensional space. Our results show that these fractional accessible solitons form a soliton family which includes crescent solitons, and asymmetric single-layer and multi-layer necklace solitons. -- Highlights: •Analytic solutions of a fractional Schrödinger equation are obtained. •The solutions are produced by means of self-similar method applied to the fractional Schrödinger equation with parabolic potential. •The fractional accessible solitons form crescent, asymmetric single-layer and multilayer necklace profiles. •The model applies to the propagation of optical pulses in strongly nonlocal nonlinear media.

    The open access (OA) or the idea of a free access to scholarly literature published in electronic form has been already well established in the field of medicine. Medline has already been free for a decade, PubMed Central has been growing steadily. The global crisis of the scientific publishing, becoming increasingly dominated by multinational companies and constant increase of journal prices have moved to action not only individuals and institutions but governments and research charities too. The aim of this article is to give an overview of the main open access initiatives and resources in biomedicine (PubMed, PubMed Central, BioMed Central, PLoS). The OA pros and cons are briefly discussed emphasizing the benefits of OA to medical research and practice.

    Full Text Available The paper discusses appropriate policy measures for achieving universal access to broadband services in Europe. Access can be delivered by means of many different technology solutions described in the paper. This means a greater degree of competition and affects the kind of policy measures to be applied. The paper concludes that other policy measure than the classical universal service obligation are in play, and discusses various policy measures taking the Lisbon process as a point of departure. Available policy measures listed in the paper include, universal service obligation, harmonization, demand stimulation, public support for extending the infrastructure, public private partnerships (PPP, and others.
