  2. Fernando Ortiz e Allan Kardec: espiritismo e transculturação Fernando Ortiz and Allan Kardec: spiritism and transculturation

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Este ensaio explora a importância do espiritismo de Kardec para os princípios de Fernando Ortiz e para seu longo, por vezes tortuoso, inquérito que o leva à noção de "transculturação". Em seus anos de formação, Ortiz foi profundamente influenciado por Lombroso, mas também, como tantos outros escritores e intelectuais, por Kardec. Ele publicou ensaios fundamentais sobre o espiritismo, especialmente sobre as implicações da reencarnação para hierarquias espirituais e sociais. A doutrina de Kardec sobre o progresso espiritual da alma permitiu a Ortiz defender um projeto nacional mais inclusivo. O kardecismo também forneceu metáforas que correm como um fio por seus trabalhos mais importantes sobre as culturas africanas em Cuba, e também por sua poética. A "transmigração" das almas, com suas possibilidades de constantes novos princípios, permitiu a Ortiz introduzir um elemento espiritual e político na ideia de largo alcance que é a transculturação.This essay explores the importance of Kardec's Spiritism in Fernando Ortiz's beginnings and in his long, often roundabout, inquiry leading to the notion of "transculturation". In his formative years Ortiz was deeply influenced by Lombroso but also, like so many other writers and intellectuals, by Kardec. He published fundamental essays on Spiritism, especially on the implications of reincarnation for spiritual and social hierarchies. Kardec's doctrine of the spiritual progress of the soul allowed Ortiz to argue for a more inclusionary national project. Kardecism also provided metaphors that run like a thread through Ortiz's major works on African cultures in Cuba and in his poetics. The "transmigration" of the souls, with its possibilities of endless new beginnnings, enabled Ortiz to introduce a spiritual and political element into the far-ranging idea of transculturation.

So enjoy the pleasures of this world including undoubtedly love. He conceives the poet's work likes the search for truth. In Miradas al último espejo, Ortiz provides relief from his poetry, says goodbye and thanks the life in a Cervantes wayFiel a los temas recurrentes en sus hondos versos elegíacos, en su último libro Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz recuerda las personas y los lugares de su existencia, canta los efectos del paso del tiempo y la precariedad de la vida, reflexiona sobre la poesía haciendo hincapié en el papel fundamental de la tradición. Lo que pertenece al pasado sobrevive aquí en unas palabras llenas de belleza y emoción, que pretenden abatir la barrera entre el hoy y el ayer: las distintas épocas se mezclan en el sentir de Ortiz y concurren juntas a guiarlo hasta el punto final. El poder lenitivo de los versos, el sarcasmo y la ironía alivian la resignación ante el fluir temporal y le ayudan a aceptar el disgregarse del ser humano en su rápido recorrido por la vida. La única certeza del peregrino es su viaje, razón por la que tiene que aprovecharlo, mostrando gratitud y gozando de los placeres de este mundo entre los que prima indudablemente el amor. Concibiendo la ardua tarea del poeta como una búsqueda de la verdad para transmitirla en sus versos, en Miradas al último espejo Ortiz avisa a sus lectores del destino que todos compartimos, aconseja sobre cómo actuar a lo largo del camino, ofrece el alivio de su poesía y se despide 'con cervantino agradecimiento de la vida'

    Full Text Available The purpose of the study was to determine the goals of the rectors of the universities established after 2006 and to identify what they can do in line with these goals. We also aimed to uncover the entrepreneurial qualities of the rectors having an administrative duty in the university climate and to determine the status of scientists who will guide the future of Turkey. The study was conducted between October 2014 and October 2016 through interviews with 37 rectors, 29 of which belonged to a state university and 8 of which belonged to a foundation university, among the total of 70 rectors from nationwide universities founded in every region of Turkey since 2006. The results of the study indicated that the various goals and visions of rectors included becoming a world university that is innovative and entrepreneurial, constructing the institutional identity of the university, being visionary and open to change and motivating the employees and students. It is considered that new universities will have an important catalyst role in local, regional and national development with the right development strategies. This research is important since there is no other study on university rectors’ 2023 visions and goals and also due to the contributions of the strategies to be developed in line with the findings of this study for the entrepreneurial and innovative university indexes.

    Full Text Available Soledad Acosta (1833-1913 is the main Colombian writer of the nineteenth century and the largest in Latin America. She has been mainly studied for his contributions to literature, but their religious aspects usual –Item in his writings have been little addressed. Looking to fill this gap, the present paper attempts to examine religious thought and praxis of Soledad Acosta, testing the following hypothesis: thanks to its special education and status, she is in Colombia, one of the most clear representatives of Catholicism trying to reconcile with fundamental ideas of the modern world that they were not opposed to the Gospel and the Catholic faith. This in a context of political and religious turmoil, marked by intolerance and intransigence. It is intended to draw attention to the need to study systematically and detailed Catholicism of the nineteenth century and its relations with the modern world, to go beyond the thesis unison and view it as monolithic.

    Full Text Available Abstract The criminal justice system creates particular challenges for persons with HIV and Hepatitis C, many of whom have a history of injection drug use. The case of Scott Ortiz, taken from public trial and sentencing transcripts, reveals the manner in which incarceration may delay learning of important health problems such as Hepatitis C infection. In addition, the case of Mr. Ortiz suggests the bias in sentencing that a former injection drug user may face. Collaboration between the Montefiore Medical Center residency in Social Medicine and a Bronx legal services agency, Bronx Defenders, yielded the discovery that a decade after diagnosis with HIV and after long term incarceration, Mr. Ortiz was infected with Hepatitis C. Mr. Ortiz only became aware of his advanced Hepatitis C and liver damage during his trial. The second important aspect of this case centers on the justification for lengthy sentence for a burglary conviction. The presiding Judge in Mr. Ortiz's case acknowledged that because of his advanced illness, Mr. Ortiz posed no threat to society as a burglar (the crime for which he was convicted. But the Judge elected to use his discretion to sentence Mr. Ortiz to a term of 15 years to life (as opposed to a minimum of two to four years based on the idea that the public health would be served by preventing Mr. Ortiz from returning to the life of a street addict, sharing dirty needles with others. Mr. Ortiz reports distant injection drug use, no evidence of current or recent drug use was presented during Mr. Ortiz's trial and he reports no injection drug use for over a decade. In this case, bias against a former injection drug user, masquerading as concern for public health, is used to justify a lengthier sentence. Mr. Ortiz's lack of awareness of his Hepatitis C infection despite long term incarceration, combined with the justification for his dramatically increased sentence, provide examples of how persons within the criminal justice

    2011-10-01

    Full Text Available Both Leslie Marmon Silko and Simon J. Ortiz have retold the story of a 1952 murder by two Pueblo brothers, a story that both writers first heard during their childhood years as it quickly became part of the local Native American traditional corpus. Both Silko and Ortiz are self-consciously indebted to the Native American storytelling tradition, particularly with respect to its malleability in the face of change, a fluidity that operates in tension with the preservation of certain fundamental religious and philosophical constants. Accordingly, Silko and Ortiz see their stories as providing pathways to the tradition, molding, reforming, and contributing to it without departing from it. Content, tone, style, and purpose are analyzed to reveal the variants in their redactions.

The author’s purpose is to revise and subvert the ancient stories from the original plot of the Odyssey and the Old Testament, as well as to strip the protagonists (Eve, Penelope, Circe, Salome and Bathsheba of the stereotypical image that has been attributed to them in previous centuries. By means of carefully premeditated language full of lyricism, Lourdes Ortiz successfully potrays the psychology of her characters, using a short original plot, enriched and intensified with a series of beautiful and suggestive images, complex metaphors and carefully chosen verb tenses. This study aims to investigate the concept of time in the collection Voices of Women of Lourdes Ortiz, challenging the linearity of the narrative, the cyclical and parallel constructions, the distribution of tenses and time references, which were elaborated according to the main objective of the author: to unravel the complex ancestral figures and thus provide a humane vision of the great stories of our collective memory.

    Full Text Available Lutzomyia townsendi (Ortiz, 1959 es un flebótomo antropofílico con concordancia gonadotrófica, en las zonas endémicas de Leishmania brasiliensis y L. garnhami en el occidente de Venezuela. Mediante el estudio de hembras colonizadas en el laboratorio, nuliparas o paridas, de hembras silvestres alimentadas sobre voluntarios y de hembras silvestres mantenidas con sacarosa, se establecen criterios de nuliparidad con un 56,6% de confianza. En cambio, signos de paridad aparecen en un 82% de las hembras consideradas como tales. La digestión de un ingesta sanguínea inicia un ciclo gonadotrófico con oogénesis abortiva y acumulación de fosfolípidos en las células epiteliales del estómago y en las glândulas accesorias. La ovoposición completa produce un calix ovárico grueso e irregular con restos de oocitos abortivos y acumulación de pigmentos. Estos caracteres son suficientes para precisar un criterio de paridad. La presencia de fosfolípidos en el estómago y en las glândulas accesorias de hembras nulíparas es una indicación de ingesta incompleta de sangre.Lutzomyia townsendi (Ortiz, 1959 is the main anthropophilic sandfly in endemic places for Leishmania braziliensis and L. garnhami in Western Venezuela. The study of laboratory bred females, nulliparous or parous and, wild females fed on man as well as wild females maintained with sucrose, allowed to establish a criterion of nulliparity with 56.6% of confidence for those captured in field conditions. In the same wild females, parity can be assessed with 81.5% of confidence. After blood digestion of full-engorged females a gonotrophic cycle is completed. Abortive oogenesis and accumulation of phospholipids in midgut epitelial cells and into accessory glands are observed. The ovoposition produces a thick and irregular ovaric calix with rests of abortive oocytes and accumulation of a melanin-like black pigment. All these changes are enough for identification of a parous fly. The presence

    The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, located in the northernmost part of Colombia, has been an object of scientific inquiry since at least the XIXth century, among other things because of its isolated character in relation to the Andean mountain chain. In this article we present some contributions to the knowledge of its origin and geological framework made by Joaquin Acosta (1800-1852) and Jorge Isaacs (1837-1895). Furthermore we establish a possible theoretical and conceptual relationship between these authors and some important European geologists and naturalists in the XIXth century, in the context of a history of ideas pertaining to orogenesis in Colombia.

    Full Text Available For the first Jesuits, the Peruvian Province has been a place of experimentation of educational practices and inculturation. The presence of a culture as complex as that of the Incas posed to the Society some crucial theological and political problems. To solve these problems, some of its members undertook grammatical, anthropological and historical studies that are still essential for understanding the peoples of the Andes. Among these studies, they are to be counted those of José de Acosta (1540-1600, who was provincial of Peru, and Blas Valera (1544-1597?/1619?, first Jesuit mestizo to be ordained a priest. Both were opposed to the policy of forced conversion of the Indios, but they proposed two different ways to educate the natives to Christianity. This paper aims at investigating the plots of these pathways, understanding them as two pedagogies strategically different, but not in opposition to each other.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this article is to explore the mythical representations in two of the six short stories that make up Lourdes Ortiz's Voces de mujer (2007, previously published under the title Los motivos de Circe. It is well known that most rewritings of the classical myths have been faithful to the “official truth” of the original versions. But recent works in search of other meanings, have explored dimensions often hidden or blurred by the “official” version. This is the case of the short stories in this collection whose protagonists are six archetypal or mythical women and their respectful references to the biblical, Homeric and pictorial world: Eve, Circe, Penelope, Betsabé, Salomé and Gioconda. The perspective offered by Lourdes Ortiz about the history of these myths allows us to read the story from the point of view of her female heroines. As such, then, in this article I will focus on two female characters from the Homeric epic: Circe and Penelope.El propósito de este artículo es explorar las representaciones míticas en dos de los seis cuentos que componen Voces de mujer (2007, de Lourdes Ortiz, publicado anteriormente bajo el título Los Motivos de Circe.

El modo de la crítica es la imagen en tanto irrupción, advenimiento de la imaginación (imago, en el sentido que le da Didi-Huberman que parte, en estos casos, de lo concreto, incluso de lo nimio. La fuerza de la imagen en tanto proceso en la poesía de Ortiz establece un movimiento que le devuelve a los objetos de uso su aura, a la vez que sostiene su definición materialista; un doblez en el que, además, se construye el relicario, la miniatura e incluso la colección. A la vez, puede leerse esta aparición de la imagen como migración y metamorfosis de los objetos tal como aparecen en los poemas más objetivistas y como revisión de sus colecciones

    Full Text Available Considering the consensus on the need to revise the interpretation that the Council of Universities has made on Article 43 of the Higher Education Law, the experience gained over the years of its application and having introduced in the agenda of the committees of such Council the specific topic to start the treatment within the Academic Affairs Committee, we shall contribute to the debate with some reflections made within the Council of Rectors of Private Universities. The method will be predominantly exegetical, trying to unravel the true meaning of the law and its correlation with the concrete experience, which seems to have been taken away from there and therefore generates the need for its revision. The distance between the meaning and scope of the standard and the criteria and practices adopted for its implementation, is manifested in the following situations: • Increased number of careers seeking the inclusion in the regime of article 43. • Expansion of activities restricted exclusively to professional degrees. • Consultation mechanisms that demonstrate conflicts of interest. • Invasion of activities reserved for exclusivity. • Conflicts between professions incorporated into article 43. • Secondary motivations for the incorporation to the regime of article 43. • Overestimation of professions for their incorporation into the regime of art. 43.

    Leishmaniasis is a vector-borne disease transmitted by the intradermal inoculation of Leishmania (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) promastigotes together with saliva during the bite of an infected sand fly. The salivary glands were compared from two vector species, Lutzomyia ovallesi (Ortiz,1952) and Lutzomyia migonei (França,1920) (Diptera: Psychodidae). Protein profiles by SDS PAGE of salivary glands were compared among species as well as their development at several times post feeding. First, mice were immunized to salivary proteins by exposure to biting by L. ovallesi and of L. migonei. Antibodies in these mice against salivary gland-specific proteins were evaluated by immunoblotting. No apparent change was revealed in the kinetic expression of salivary proteins induced by the different physiological states post feeding. Qualitative and quantitative variations were detected in16-18 polypeptides with molecular weights ranging from 6 to 180 kDa. Species-specific proteins were demonstrated for L. migonei and L. ovallesi. In addition, antibodies against salivary gland specific proteins were found in mice immunized by the saliva of both species. Basic information was obtained concerning the nature of salivary gland proteins of L. migonei and L. ovallesi. This information helps to elucidate the role of salivary proteins and their potential as effective tools in screening risk factors in human and other vertebrate hosts.

    The US National Institutes of Health predict climate change will cause an additional 250,000 deaths between 2030 and 2050, with damages to health costing US$2-$4 billion by 2030. Although much debate still surrounds climate change, island ecosystems-such as Cuba's-in the developing world are arguably among the most vulnerable contexts in which to confront climate variability. Beginning in the 1990s, Cuba launched research to develop the evidence base, set policy priorities, and design mitigation and adaptation actions specifically to address climate change and its effects on health. Two researchers at the forefront of this interdisciplinary, intersectoral effort are epidemiologist Dr Guillermo Mesa, who directed design and implementation of the nationwide strategy for disaster risk reduction in the Cuban public health system as founding director of the Latin American Center for Disaster Medicine (CLAMED) and now heads the Disasters and Health department at the National School of Public Health; and Dr Paulo Ortiz, a biostatistician and economist at the Cuban Meteorology Institute's Climate Center (CENCLIM), who leads the research on Cuba's Climate and Health project and is advisor on climate change and health for the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

  7. Pedagogical experiment of the first rector of the Ural state mining institute P.P. Von Weymarn as an effort to reform the higher education institution in 1917-1920

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available Based on sources recently discovered and included in the database of scientific publications, the article analyzes the pedagogical activity of the scientist-chemist, the first rector and founder of the Ural Mining Institute in Ekaterinburg Petr Petrovich von Weymarn, whose name is now almost forgotten. The article shows that this activity can be evaluated as a pedagogical experiment on reformation of the higher education institution system, which could have been adopted in Russia if Bolsheviks lost the Civil War. Pedagogical activity of von Weymarn has a theoretical basis that he developed under the influence of Wilhelm Ostwald, the Nobel Prize winner in chemistry and the idealist philosopher, as well as the example of the Petrograd (Petersburg Mining Institute, which for von Weymarn was not only an alma mater but an example of a reformist attitudes toward the scientific and pedagogical process in higher education.The article gives a detailed analysis of the currently available philosophical and pedagogical essays of P.P. von Weymarn, known as «Essays on the Energy of Culture», as well as the practical application of these theoretical works on the basis of the Ural Mining Institute in Ekaterinburg and in Vladivostok.With the advent of Soviet power, von Weymarn's pedagogical experiment was forcibly interrupted, and he became «persona non-grata» in the Soviet Union, but now his name is being restored. Unfortunately, he is known either as a chemist or as the founder and first rector of the current Ural State Mining University, but not as a teacher who offered his view of reforming the higher school system. This article fills this gap, revealing not only the work of von Weymarn, but also describing the difficult period of changing the old scientific school system, which could have taken a completely different development path.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo compara la novela Dolores, de la escritora colombiana Soledad Acosta de Samper (1833-1913 con la norma jurídica vigente para la época en que se escribió dicho texto. El objetivo es acompasar la escritura legal con la ficcional para determinar que ambas re - flejan la realidad social y que, en el caso de la autora, sus escritos proponen la modificación de las estructuras civilistas que privilegiaron la desigualdad de las mujeres y su exclusión de la vida pública. En este sentido, afectar a la protagonista de la novela con la enfermedad de la lepra es una estrategia literaria poderosa para cuestionar el único destino posible para la mujer : la maternidad y el matrimonio. Adicional - mente, el hecho de permitirle expresar desde su aislamiento sus más íntimas reflexiones facilita deducir la intención velada de animar a sus lectoras a romper los esquemas tradicionales para encontrar en la vida intelectual alternativas al modelo legal y al esquema literario francés.

Corresponde a una evaluación diagnóstica de tipo descriptiva y comparativa de corte transversal, a una población compuesta por 80 alumnos, a quienes se les aplicó instrumentos debidamente validados con un Alfa de Cronbach α=0.82 en Matemática y de α=0.64 en Comprensión Lectora. Para el análisis de la información, se utilizaron métodos descriptivos univariados y multivariados. Los resultados evidencian, en general, un dominio descendido en ambas habilidades o por debajo de lo esperado al ingreso de la Educación Superior, especialmente en las habilidades matemáticas.Based on a comparative cross-assessment diagnosis conducted in two Council of Rectors (CRUCH universities in southern Chile in 2009, this paper shows the results of Math reasoning and reading comprehension skills assessment of entrant students from the Primary School Teaching Program. Data for this paper comes from a test with Cronbach's Alpha reliability of 0,82 in Math and 0,64 in Reading Comprehension, which was applied to a sample of 80 students. Data analysis required one-variable and multivariable descriptive methods and the results dramatically showed either a low command of both skills or far lower than expected performance for entrant students from the Primary School Teaching Program, especially in Maths.

Es discuteix sobre com s’aborda el procés d’ensenyament-aprenentatge de la recerca en el context llatinoamericà. S’evidencia que, malgrat les diferències contextuals i institucionals, a Llatinoamèrica prevalen problemàtiques compartides sobre formació per a la recerca. Alguns dels principals aspectes que es posen de manifest estan relacionats amb la dificultat que tenen els formadors per desenvolupar el procés d’ensenyament-aprenentatge en el marc de les ciències socials i humanitats. Altres aspectes es vinculen amb l’experiència en recerca del formador mateix, amb l’estil que té per dur a terme la seva pròpia recerca i guiar tesis, i amb l’estil de docència que utilitza. També són un factor de rellevància els estils dels estudiants, així com les creences que tots dos actors tenen sobre la formació per a la recerca.

    Full Text Available Este artículo ofrece una revisión de las prioridades educativas de los gobier-nos desde la creación del Estado liberal italiano hasta la actualidad. Tras una breve introducción, el artículo se centra en la reforma de la secundaria inferior inspirada en el principio de igualdad de oportunidades que tuvo lugar en 1962. Sin embargo esta reforma no se acompañó de reformas en los niveles superiores de la secundaria. A partir de mediados de los años 70, en plena crisis económi-ca, el principio de igualdad de oportunidades sigue vigente pero surge la preo-cupación por la calidad educativa. Esta nueva exigencia ha inspirado la apro-bación de reformas tales como la de la administración; concesión de la autonomía, reformas universitarias etc. El punto de inflexión más importante se produce en la década de los noventa cuando se aprueban numerosas refor-mas que tiene como prioridad diversificar la enseñanza con el fin de que nadie abandone el sistema educativo sin obtener una cualificación e introducir el aprendizaje y formación a lo largo de la vida en el sistema educativo italiano

    One of the areas of research of the nuclear fission key action of the Fifth EURATOM RTD Framework Programme (FP5) is safety and efficiency of future systems, which has as an objective to investigate and evaluate new or revisited concepts for nuclear energy that offer potential longer-term benefits in terms of cost, safety, waste management, use of fissile material, less risk of diversion and sustainability. After the first call for proposals of FP5, several projects related to high temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTRs) were retained by the European Commission (EC) services. They address important issues such as HTR fuel technology, HTR fuel cycle and HTR materials. In the next call for proposals (deadline January 2001) the EC expects other important HTR-related items not covered by the first call (e.g. power conversion systems and system analysis) to be addressed. The EC also expects proposals for strategy studies and/or thematic networks on the assessment of applications of nuclear energy other than generation of electricity via hydrogen production.

  15. Homogenization and two scales convergence of some stationary and non-stationary heat transfer problems, application to gas cooled nuclear rectors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Habibi, Z.

    2011-01-01

    We are interested in the homogenization of heat transfer in periodic porous media modelling the geometry of a gas cooled nuclear reactor. This geometry is made of a solid media perforated by several long thin parallel cylinders, the diameter of which is of the same order than the period. The heat is transported by conduction in the solid part of the domain and by conduction, convection and radiative transfer in the fluid part (the cylinders). A non-local boundary condition models the radiative heat transfer on the cylinder walls. It is a stationary analysis corresponding to a nominal performance of the reactor core, and also non-stationary corresponding to a normal shut-down of the core. To obtain the homogenized problem we first use a formal two-scale asymptotic expansion method. The mathematical justification of our results is based on the notion of two-scale convergence. One feature of this work in dimension 3 is that it combines homogenization with a 3D to 2D asymptotic analysis since the radiative transfer in the limit cell problem is purely two-dimensional. A second feature of this work is the study of this heat transfer when it contains an oscillating thermal source at the microscopic level and a thermal exchange with the perforations. In this context, our numerical analysis shows a non-negligible contribution of the second order corrector which helps us to model the gradients appearing between the source area and the perforations.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo examina dos novelas y una biografía publicadas a mediados de los noventa que construyen imágenes de Eva Perón a partir de textos de la época y de la sucesivas recreaciones que se han hecho desde entonces. Aunque utilizan las mismas fuentes y hasta las mismas anécdotas, estos relatos ofrecen retratos considerablemente diferentes y no sólo por razones ideológicas. En una época como la actual, en la que el cientista social o el novelista tienen conciencia de que no pueden hablar por el otro, y menos en el caso de un personaje histórico sobre el que se ha construido una mitología, la modalidad narrativa adquiere especial importancia. Mientras en un caso se destruye toda pretensión de recuperar la verdad (Santa Evita, los otros dos relatos confían en la posibilidad de proponer nuevas interpretaciones. Estas representaciones evocan también consideraciones de género, es decir, revelan una conciencia de que se representa a una mujer que transgredió los cánones de su época logrando transformarse en líder de un movimiento político. Si bien es cierto que la intimidad de Eva continúa siendo elusiva, los tres relatos nos permiten entender desde nuestro tiempo la vida de una mujer que se definió a sí misma y cuyas decisiones tuvieron consecuencias realesThis essay examines two novels and a biography published in the mid-90s that construct images of Eva Perón originating in texts of her own time and in successive recreations that have been done since then. Although the same sources and even the same anecdotes are recalled, these narratives offer considerably different portraits, and not just for ideological reasons. In an age such as ours, in which the social scientist and the novelist realize that they cannot speak for the other, and much less in the case of a historical figure who has become a myth, the discursive modality adopted acquires special significance. While in one case, that of Santa Evita, there is no illusion of recovering the true story, in the other two narratives there is a hint that new interpretations may be posited. These representations evoke also gender considerations, for they reveal an awareness that the character being represented is a woman who transgressed the notions of what it meant to be a woman, transforming herself into the leader of a political movement. Even if it is true that Eva's persona continues to be elusive, the three narratives allow us to understand from our own times the life of a woman who was able to define herself, and whose decisions had real consequences

    Full Text Available La búsqueda del conocimiento como uno de los principales focos que tienen las universidades se encuentra estrechamente relacionada con la calidad docente. Materializar este concepto implica establecer una relación entre la producción científica en Chile, la calidad docente y el Aporte Fiscal Directo (AFD que es destinado a las universidades pertenecientes al CRUCH, éste es el objetivo de esta investigación. Para el análisis, primero se busca determinar si existe correlación entre las variables de estudio. Posteriormente, se obtiene el índice de correlación simple entre las mismas. Los resultados muestran una correlación muy alta entre cada una de las variables. Además, se realiza este mismo procedimiento segmentando a las universidades según su ubicación, en la Región Metropolitana o en regiones y si son estatales o no, obteniendo resultados similares. De forma complementaria, se realiza un análisis con la técnica de regresión lineal simple en donde se obtiene que sólo un pequeño porcentaje de las publicaciones científicas provenientes de las instituciones pertenecientes el CRUCH estarían siendo publicadas por otro tipo de investigadores. The pursuit of knowledge as one of the main focuses of universities is closely related to quality. To materialize this concept in establishing the relationship of scienti­fic production in Chile, quality of faculty and Direct Fiscal Funding (AFD destinated to universities belonging to the CRUCH, is the aim of this research. For analysis, a scatter plot is created to intuitively determine if there is a correlation between the study variables. Subsequently, the rate of simple correlation is obtained between the same variables, which results in a very high correlation between each one of the variables. In addition, this same procedure is performed after segmenting universities by location, in the metropolitan area or other regions, and by being state-owned or not, obtaining similar results. To complement this, an analysis with simple linear regression technique is performed, with the results of only a small percentage of scienti­fic publications from the universities of CRUCH, being published by other types of investigators.

  6. Los Valores Ético-profesionales que Promueven los Documentos Rectores de un Universidad Pública en México. The Professional Ethic Values Promoted by Governing Documents of a Public University in Mexico

    Full Text Available This study analyses the professional-ethic values promoted by education policy in public university education in Mexico, the semantic correspondence of said policy with programs, and the strategies for its implementation. Following the methodology of textual analysis, we reviewed the National Programs of Education, documents that embed the academic plan at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, and the curricula of licenciaturas in the areas of natural science and engineering and technology. It was identified that the core elements of university education are social compromise, professional competence, and education in values. Our findings indicate that there is textual correspondence among the most relevant categories of the documents; however, it is worth pointing out the absence of strategies that explicitly promote student development of professional-ethic values. Este trabajo analiza los valores ético-profesionales que la universidad pública en México promueve en sus políticas educativas, la correspondencia semántica de éstas con los programas y las estrategias para su implementación. Usando la metodología de análisis de contenido se revisaron los Planes Nacionales de Educación de México, los documentos orientadores de la vida académica de la Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, así como los currículos de las licenciaturas en las áreas de ciencias naturales e ingeniería y tecnología. Se identificó que el compromiso social, la competencia profesional y la formación en valores son los principales planteamientos orientadores de la universidad. Se encontró correspondencia textual entre las categorías más relevantes de los documentos, sin embargo, se advierte la ausencia de estrategias que promuevan explícitamente la formación en valores ético-profesionales en los estudiantes.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo pretende enumerar algunos de los resultados observados en la realidad mexicana a partir de la puesta en práctica de las políticas neoliberales, haciendo énfasis en el retorno del gobierno priista a partir del año 2012. En una segunda parte se pretende refutar la idea de que los Estados de bienestar atentan contra la acumulación capitalista y afectan el crecimiento y la competitividad económica. Dada la realidad que se vive en algunos de los países de América Latina, en donde los gobiernos han puesto en práctica políticas distantes del neoliberalismo, es conveniente realizar una comparación, en términos de los resultados que afectan a la población, con lo que sucede en México, país en que únicamente a partir de la ceguera de los líderes políticos se mantiene el mismo modelo económico que tan graves consecuencias está causando a la mayoría de la población. Teniendo en cuenta que ningún acuerdo puede estar por encima de las necesidades de la gente, la conclusión no puede ser otra que constatar que en México los gobernantes que han dirigido y dirigen al país durante largo tiempo, cuya preocupación es contraria a la nación, a su población, su interés radica en preservar los intereses de las grandes corporaciones y seguir los preceptos del gobierno norteamericano y sus distintos organismos, en contraste con lo que está sucediendo en países de América Latina, donde se han construido los cimientos sobre los que puede edificarse un país verdaderamente independiente. This paper aims to list some of the results observed from the implementation of neoliberal policies in the Mexican reality, emphasizing the return of the PRI government since 2012. In the second part is intended to refute the idea that welfare states undermine capitalist accumulation and affect economic growth and competitiveness. Given the reality that exists in some countries of Latin America, where governments have distant neoliberal policies, it should make a comparison in terms of the results that affect the population, with what happens in Mexico, a country that only from the blindness of political leaders the same economic model that is causing such serious consequences for the majority of the population remains. Given that no agreement can be above the needs of the people the conclusion can’t be other than to note that in Mexico the rulers who have led and lead the country for a long time, whose concern is contrary to the nation, to its population, its interest lies in preserving the interests of large corporations and follow the precepts of the American government and its various agencies, in contrast to what is happening in Latin America, where they have built the foundation on which it can build an truly independent country.

    This paper presents the results of the first experimental phase in a pilot plant after analysing the potential of different configurations of the membrane bioreactor process. The pilot was fed with raw wastewater from Valdebebas WWTP in Madrid , and consists of abiological reactor of 2,5 m''3 and a membrane tank of 0.75 m''3 containing a module of flat submerged membranes from Kubota. The size for anaerobic, anoxic and aerated zones, as well as the flow rate for the recycles, were established from the simulation study. Targeting compact full scale plants, the solid and hydraulic retention times were maintained at low values (12 days and 8 hours respectively) and the suspended solids in the membrane tank between 10 and 15 g/l. Thus, an efficient nitrification was achieved which was a even better than expected by simulation. Effluent nitrate were between 6 and 8 mg/l by operating with low dissolved oxygen levels in the aerated zone. Phosphorous removal was also satisfactory with effluent phosphate below 1 mg P/l.

    Finalizaba el año de 1925 cuando un jurado, reunido en los viejos claustros de Santa Inés, otorgaba a EDMUNDO RICO el grado de Doctor en Medicina y Cirugía. Ese jurado examinador integrado por los profesionales más destacados de la época y presidido por el Profesor José María Lombana Barreneche, estaba constituido por los profesores Carios Esguerra, Roberto Franco, Luis Felipe Calderón y Juan N. Corpas, siendo Secretario de la Facultad el entonces muy joven médico José del Carmen Acosta. Es de anotar que los hombres mencionados llenan todo un periodo médico en 10 que va corrido del presente siglo.

    La tesis del graduado versaba sobre la patogenia y tratamiento de la rabia y en ella exhibía ya el novel galeno su estilo inconfundible, por ser tan personal; esa tesis todavía tiene actualidad y en ella se describe, como en una novela de suspenso, la carrera a muerte que se entabla a través del sistema nervioso, entre el virus de la hidrofobia y las antitoxinas
    correspondientes, siendo la meta de la carrera los centros nerviosos superiores. No es de extrañar que ya Rico exhibiera veteranía en su amena prosa, si siendo estudiante había escrito numerosas siluetas sobre varios profesores y había colaborado ocasionalmente en la prensa periódica.
    Estaba en vigencia en aquéllos tiempos la antigua y gallarda usanza de respetar, acatar y estimar a los profesores de la Facultad. Y en verdad que Rico siempre fue fiel a tal postulado de elemental hidalguía, a pesar de ser un hombre esencialmente irreverente. Eran los tiempos en que a la muerte del Profesor Rivas, su cadáver fue transportado en hombros por sus alumnos reprobados.
    Regían por entonces los principios de la medicina francesa, a la sazón a la cabeza de la ciencia universal, y por tanto Rico fue a perfeccionar sus estudios a la antigua Lutecia. Alli al comienzo siguió cursillos de cirugía, abandonándolos prestamente para dedicarse a las ciencias psicol

    Full Text Available Es un honor presentar en esta edición de la revista Labor & Engenho un conjunto de 8 artículos sobre los ámbitos antrópicos –con una dimensión espacial, territorial y desarrollo regional– y ámbitos arquitectónicos. En años recientes existe una seria preocupación sobre la forma en que hemos intervenido la naturaleza y la forma en que hemos –como seres humanos– trastocado lo ‘natural’ para convertirlo en ‘artificial’. Las diversas disciplinas que tienen injerencia en la fabricación de espacios habitables, infraestructura y elementos urbanos ahora deben considerar la sustentabilidad como un factor de lectura que permita determinar los daños irreversibles en el planeta. De esta manera las propuestas de espacios en el territorio deben considerar reducir afectaciones apoyándose en investigaciones serias que permitan coadyuvar a mejorar el entorno habitable. Así, con la publicación de estos artículos, pretendemos socializar avances de pesquisas que argumentan problemáticas y posibles soluciones en el análisis de sitios inmersos en parajes urbanos y rurales. Dentro del documento “Caracterización Acústica de la Capilla Abierta del Antiguo Convento de San Nicolás de Tolentino en Actopan, Hidalgo, México. Un ejemplo de resignificación patrimonial regional.” escrito por Eduardo Javier García Alonso, Ronald Hans Furet Hernández y Alejandro Acosta Collazo encontraremos un estudio en base al desempeño acústico de la capilla abierta del ex convento de San Nicolás de Tolentino, ubicado en el municipio de Actopan en el estado de Hidalgo, México. El estudio está basado en teorías que explican cómo a través de modelaciones acústicas se lograba generar un mayor nivel de presión sonora a una mayor distancia logrando transmitir el mensaje religioso a una gran cantidad de feligreses. De igual forma contiene un análisis historiográfico de la función principal de la capilla abierta, complementado por un an

    La directiva de la Facultad de Medicina, con muy buen criterio, ha querido restablecer en el pensum de estudios el curso de Radiología, que existió en el año de 1928 y desapareció algún tiempo después. Pero esa directiva, con clara visión del momento científico que corresponde al año de 1934, no quiso que esa enseñanza fuera secundaria y satélite de los estudios de patología quirúrgica, como sucedía anteriormente, sino que en esta ocasión la ha elevado a una categoría más noble, debidamente adecuada a lo que exige su importancia y a la caracterización; y para mayor abundamiento, la ha dividido en dos secciones: la una, para la cual he sido inmerecidamente nombrado, se encargará de todo lo relacionado con el diagnóstico de las enfermedades por medio de los Rayos X; y la otra, para la cual ha sido nombrado el doctor Aquilino Soto, distinguido colega, conocedor profundo de la rama de la radiología y cuyo nombre es suficientemente reputado en los hospitales de Paris, en donde trabajó durante varios años, se encargará de la electrología y del tratamiento por medio de los Rayos X.

    Ha sido muy satisfactorio para mí que el Consejo Directivo hubiera solicitado el envío de los títulos y trabajos científicos de los aspirantes al profesorado, porque este procedimiento es, sin duda ninguna, muy superior al que se empleaba hasta hace algunos años para los nombramientos en la Facultad de Medicina, y porque considero que es éste el primer paso que se da hacia la carrera del profesorado.

    Lamento, eso sí, que no se hubiera ido un poco más allá, porque con el mismo entusiasmo que envié mis publicaciones y títulos científicos, me hubiera presentado a un concurso en el cual tuviera que competir en franca lid con mis compañeros de oposición.

    La creación de nuevas cátedras en la Facultad de Medicina prueba es del gran dinamismo y de los generosos esfuerzos que en favor de ella realiza su actual rector

The solar neutrino results yield fairly strong and consistent indications that neutrino oscillations are occurring. Other evidence for new physics is less consistent and convincing

    Stunning color astronomical images can often be the motivation for astronomers to continue slogging through countless data files, calculations, and simulations as we seek to understand the mysteries of the universe. But sometimes the stunning images can, themselves, be the source of scientific discovery. This is the case with the below image of Lynds Dark Nebula 673, located in the Aquila constellation, that was captured with the Mayall 4-meter telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory by a team of scientists led by Travis Rector (University of Alaska Anchorage). After creating the image with a novel color-composite imaging method that reveals faint H emission (visible in red in both images here), Rector and collaborators identified the presence of a dozen new Herbig-Haro objects small cloud patches that are caused when material is energetically flung out from newly born stars. The image adapted above shows three of the new objects, HH 118789, aligned with two previously known objects, HH 32 and 332 suggesting they are driven by the same source.

    Full Text Available En Los indios recién descubiertos (1538, Francisco de Vitoria afirma que hay una comunicación y sociedad natural entre todos los seres humanos. Cuarenta anos después, en Lima, el jesuita JOSÉ DE Acosta, en Sobre la salvación de los indios (1576, escribe una suerte de informe sobre cómo poner en práctica esta comunicación por medio de métodos pacificos de predicación. Es un tipo de tratado de comunicación, en el cual denuncia la práctica de las conversiones forzadas. Para Acosta, el éxito de la comunicación del evangelio a los indios supone un cambio voluntario de creencias y acciones, basado en lo que él considera la razón natural. Esta discusión filosófica y teológica muestra que hay un entretejido normativo entre el ius gentium, ius civile y ley eclesiástica, y que la actual teoria de la comunicación tiene mucho que aprender de este caso paradigmático y parcialmente fracasado de comunicación del evangelio en América.In On the Recently Discovered American Indians (1538, Francisco de Vitoria states that there is natural communication and society among all human beings. Forty years later, in Lima, the Jesuit JOSÉ DE Acosta, in On the Salvation of the Indians (1576, writes a report about how to put into practice this communication through peaceful preaching. It is a kind of communication treatise, in which he also denounces the practice of forcing conversions. To Acosta, successful communication of the gospel to Indians signifies a willing shift of beliefs and actions, based on what he considers natural reason. This philosophical and theological discussion shows that there is a normative interweaving between ius gentium, ius civile and ecclesiastic law, and that a contemporary theory of communication has a lot to learn from the paradigmatic and partially failed case of communicating the gospel in America.

Similarly, the commonly applied preprocessing step of Gaussian spatial smoothing can shift the peak statistical significance away from the peak of the contrast and towards regions of lower variance. These problems have previously been identified in positron emission tomography (PET) (Reimold et al., 2006) and voxel-based morphometry (VBM) (Acosta-Cabronero et al., 2008), but can also appear in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies. Additionally, for source-reconstructed magneto- and electro-encephalography (M/EEG), the problems are particularly severe because sparsity-favouring priors constrain meaningfully large signal and variance to a small set of compactly supported regions within the brain. (Acosta-Cabronero et al., 2008) suggested adding noise to background voxels (the 'haircut'), effectively increasing their noise variance, but at the cost of contaminating neighbouring regions with the added noise once smoothed. Following theory and simulations, we propose to modify--directly and solely--the noise variance estimate, and investigate this solution on real imaging data from a range of modalities.

    Environmental concerns, economics and the earth's finite store of fossil fuels argue for a resuscitation of nuclear power. The authors think improved light-water reactors incorporating passive safety features can be both safe and profitable, but only if attention is paid to economics, effective management and rigorous training methods. The experience of nearly four decades has winnowed out designs for four basic types of reactor: the heavy-water reactor (HWR), the gas-cooled rector (GCR), the liquid-metal-cooled reactor (LMR) and the light-water reactor (LWR). Each design is briefly described before the paper discusses the passive safety features of the AP-600 rector, so-called because it employs an advanced pressurized water design and generates 600 MW of power

    Alpha-channeling can, in principle, be implemented in mirror machines via exciting weaklydamped modes in the ion cyclotron frequency range with perpendicular wavelengths smaller than the alpha particle gyroradius. Assuming quasi-longitudinal or quasi-transverse wave propagation, we search systematically for suitable modes in mirror plasmas. Considering two device designs, a proof-of-principle facility and a fusion rector prototype, we in fact identify candidate modes suitable for alpha-channeling.

  7. Extending the theory of realistic conflict to competition in institutional settings: intergroup status and outcome.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Echebarria-Echabe, Agustin; Guede, Emilia Fernández

    2003-12-01

    The authors analyzed the extent to which the Theory of Realistic Conflict can be extended to institutional settings in which groups are not actively involved in decisions but are passive targets of decisions taken by an institutional authority (the rector). A negative interdependence between the in-group (psychology) and a high- or low-status outgroup (engineering versus nursing) was established by an institutional authority (the rector). The competition (induced by the rector) was beneficial (an increase in the budget previously invested in the faculty) or detrimental (a decrease in the budget) for the in-group. The results confirmed that competition affects mutual attitudes, images, and behaviors of groups even if the groups are passive targets of decisions that the institutional authority makes. Moreover, competition--regardless of whether beneficial or detrimental--deteriorated images of and attitudes toward high-status out-groups. In contrast, competition improved images and opinions about low-status out-groups, but only in the loss condition.

    Full Text Available One of the oldest churches in Krakow, dedicated to All Saints, was situated between Grodzka and Franciszkańska Street. It was build in the XIII century, could had been replacement church for first Cracow’s parish, which was transferred from Saint Trinity church. The name of All Saints church was mentioned for the first time in Vita S. Stanislai. The second time in 1278 his rector Arnold was noted. Most interesting fact is that in the Tables of Pence from 1325–1327 you can find two rectors, who had separate salary and were called rectors of wooden and brick churches. In 1490 church got a collegiate title. Than double rectory was liquidated and positions of provost and dean were established. Church was a place where Brotherhood of the Poor created by Bishop Zbigniew Oleśnicki used to work. Our knowledge of churches looks comes from iconography which was made when the building was already a ruin. According to those sources church had two naves, was oriented and had simply completed presbytery. The building had adhered tower, sacristy, treasure and chapel, called capella antiqua. Description of the interior of the church comes from 1599, when Jerzy Radziwiłł, Bishop of Cracow had visited it. According to the decision of the City Beautification Committee, the church was demolished in 1835, and church’s equipment was sold on auction. The tower survived till 1840, when it shared the fate of the rest of the building.

    Full Text Available La base fundamental de la identidad de los habitantes de la provincia de San Luis (Argentina y de su historiografía, es el axioma que el pueblo puntano se inmoló por el proyecto sanmartiniano. El Gobernador Intendente Vicente Dupuy (1814-1820 fue el principal colaborador de José de San Martin en la provincia, y el coordinador de las donaciones de bienes y vidas para la causa. Contaba con el apoyo del “cabildo sanmartiniano”, un grupo de vecinos que secundaban sus ideales, apoyaban sus iniciativas y colaboraban materialmente. Pero luego de la caída del gobierno central en 1820 no se ofrece una interpretación sobre el cambio de proyecto político que representó el nuevo Gobernador, José Santos Ortiz (1820-1829. Si se consideran conjuntamente las oposiciones de un grupo de vecinos levantadas durante el gobierno de Dupuy y el accionar de Santos Ortiz durante su mandato, cabe preguntarse: ¿los cabildantes terratenientes apoyaron la gesta sanmartiniana por convicción, o se vieron forzados a hacerlo por la imposición de un grupo en el poder? ¿Representó Santos Ortiz el proyecto de lo que el grupo terrateniente buscaba y no pudo obtener mientras se llevaba delante el plan sanmartiniano? En este trabajo se busca comparar los objetivos primarios de ambos gobernadores durante sus mandatos, con el fin de vislumbrar cuál de los planes de gobierno representaba los ideales y necesidades de los grandes terratenientes de la ciudad de San Luis.

  13. Molecular diagnostic in two families affected with Autosomic Recessive Pigmentary Retinitis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Leal Esquivel, A.

    1996-01-01

    This study included two Costa Rican families with members affected by Recessive Pigmentary Autosomic Retinitis (RPAR). The first family (C1) from the province of San Jose, has 10 alive affected members, and 14 obligatory carriers. They present an Early Appearance Degeneration, RPAR tipe1 (cane-cone). The author used polymorphic markers (STRPs) to discard some related regions, with the RP in the literature. He also used the Linkage program, for the analysis of ligaments. The second family (P1), proceeding from Acosta (situated in the province of Alajuela), has 13 alive affected members and 23 obligatory carriers and they present numerous consanguineous unions. This case is a RPAR with Early Appearance (Night Blindness, fat ERG), but with a shower degeneration. The author concludes that, with studies such as this one, there will be a capacity to offer RP molecular diagnostic, and also advance in its knowledge and treatment. (S. Grainger)

    Full Text Available Droughts are characterized by having a cyclical behavior, which allows to somehow foresee the probability of their occurrence. However, in the southwest of the Province of Buenos Aires, preventive measures to mitigate its effects on agricultural activities are insufficient. The Agricultural Emergency Law (LEA sees droughts as a purely meteorological phenomenon, while our approach sees it as a product of social vulnerability, which is a consequence of deficient management and lack of foresight on the part of the agricultural producers affected by it. This presentation comprises the spatial cutting of the counties which make up the Development Plan of south-western Buenos Aires and the temporal frame included within the 2001-2006 period, due to the important occurrences of droughts. Droughts need not be considered as catastrophes, but rather as a 'social construction of risks' (García Acosta, 2005; Lavell, 2000, which is a result of lack of foresight and uncertainty.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available In this special issue on the brain mechanisms that lead to cognitive benefits of bilingualism we discussed six reasons why it will be very difficult to discover those mechanisms. Many of these problems apply to the article by Fernandez, Acosta, Douglass, Doshi, and Tartar that also appears in the special issue. These concerns include the following: 1 an overly optimistic assessment of the replicability of bilingual advantages in behavioral studies, 2 reliance on risky small samples sizes, 3 failures to match the samples on demographic characteristics such as immigrant status, and 4 language group differences that occur in neural measures (i.e., N2 amplitude, but not in the behavioral data. Furthermore the N2 amplitude measure in general suffers from valence ambiguity: larger N2 amplitudes reported for bilinguals are more likely to reflect poorer conflict resolution rather than enhanced inhibitory control.

    2015-01-01

    Abstract The American genus Neonella Gertsch, 1936 consists of very small jumping spiders whose biology is not well known. The genus currently includes eleven valid species, of which eight are known from both sexes and two are only known from one sex. This paper describes and illustrates a new species Neonella acostae sp. n., demonstrates male palpal variation in Neonella montana Galiano, 1988, and provides some information on the ecology of three sympatric species. New records of Neonella montana and Neonella minuta Galiano, 1965 are reported. Because the previously described species of Neonella were well illustrated and diagnosed, a dichotomous key to males is given along with genital illustrations of both sexes for all known species.

    Full Text Available Abstract: The article covers several literary works which deal with the historical figure of Aben Humeya, the leader of a thwarted Moorish revolt against Philip II of Spain in the XVI century. Aben Humeya in literature embraces both political symbolism and aesthetic pageantry. On the one hand, for the Romantic liberals of the 19th century he serves as an antecedent of the struggle against a repressive government, both in the peninsula and in the colonies (Martínez de la Rosa; Fernández y González. On the other hand, he accommodates well the inclination of Romantics and Modernists to Orientalism (Villaespesa. The rise of the historical novel in the past few decades also found in Aben Humeya a valuable fount to revive the Moorish chronicles (Acosta Montoro, Asenjo Sedano, Salvador, Villena, Falcones.Resumen: El artículo estudia varias obras literarias relacionadas con la figura histórica de Abén Humeya, el líder de una frustrada revuelta morisca contra Felipe II en el siglo XVI. Por un lado, los intelectuales liberales del siglo XIX encontraron en Abén Humeya un antecedente de la lucha contra un gobierno represivo, tanto en la península como en las colonias (Martínez de la Rosa; Fernández y González. Por otro lado, Abén Humeya se acomoda bien al gusto de románticos y modernistas por el Orientalismo (Villaespesa. El repunte de la novela histórica en las últimas décadas encontró también en Abén Humeya un rico filón para reelaborar las crónicas de los moriscos (Acosta Montoro, Asenjo Sedano, Salvador, Villena, Falcones.

    Full Text Available Through the feminist debate proposed by constructivist theoretical currents, this essay suggests that the pronouncements of Cuban women who developed a critical reflection of the deplorable social conditions in Cuba before the 1959 socialist revolution, are similar to the criticisms that some women’s organizations are elaborating at the present time. This article shows that after 45 years of the Cuban Revolution, the social precarity of many women can be seen as a counter argument within Cuban society. The research for this article is based on the reading of primary sources such as the journal “Mujeres Cubanas”, speeches of Vilma Espín, and Ofelia Acosta in addition to memoires, speeches and other documents collected by Dra. Lynn Stoner. These documents are found in the Centro de Investigaciones Históricas at the Universidad de Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras.//A partir del debate feminista abierto por las corrientes teóricas de corte construccionista, este ensayo propone que los discursos de mujeres cubanas que elaboraron una crítica a las deplorables condiciones sociales de Cuban antes de la revolución socialista del 1959 son similares a la crítica que ciertos sectores de mujeres elaboran actualmente. Señalamos que, a poco más de cuarenta y cinco años de la Revolución cubana, la precariedad social de muchas mujeres puede ser un referente para un contradiscurso dentro de la sociedad cubana. La investigación se centra en una lectura de fuentes de primera mano como la revista Mujeres cubanas, conferencia de Vilma Espín, Ofelia Acosta, y memorias, entre otros discursos y documentos recopilados por la doctora Lynn Stoner. Dicha colección Stoner se encuentra en el Centro de Investigaciones Históricas de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras.

    Full Text Available La convergencia de diferentes grupos humanos, prácticas, saberes y temporalidades catapulta al Caribe como fenómeno singular. Su reconocimiento como área socio-cultural, como espacio de transculturación y de sincretismo, depende de una teleología conciliadora de la diferencia. Cuestionando esta narrativa hegemónica, el presente ensayo ofrece una relectura de Fernando Ortiz, Edouard Glissant y Manuel Zapata Olivella a partir de lo que denomino el desafío a la pretensión unitaria de la identidad por vía negativa. Reflexiono sobre el potencial crítico del antagonismo y la violencia en la construcción de imaginarios históricos alternativos desde y sobre la región. As a site of intense relationality and encounter, the Caribbean has been constituted as a singular phenomenon. Its affirmation as a socio-cultural area, as the space of transculturación and syncretism, is determined by a conciliatory teleology regarding difference. To question this hegemonic cultural discourse, this essay offers a re-reading of Fernando Ortiz, Edouard Glissant and Manuel Zapata Olivella from what I will term a negative approach to and challenge of the unitary claim of identity. Through their work, I reflect on the critical potential of antagonism and violence in the construction of an alternative historical imaginary from and about the region.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on late eighteenth-century Toluca as an example in order to account for changes in olfactory perception as an aspect of the process of civilization. A number of examples derived from notary documents illustrate the institutional steps taken in the urbanization of Toluca in the late eighteenth century. Although it is important to consider the role of state initiatives and scientific arguments in triggering such a change, the case of Manuel Lechuga y Diego de Ortiz shows two characteristic aspects of the  social response facing sanitary reforms. The  first refers to the legal issues involved, the tradition of “good administration” (buen  gobierno, whose  attribution is to dictate laws geared toward common wellbeing. Hence Ortiz's phrasing of his argument regarding the injustice done to his zahurdas, since the best laws of the  kingdom were those  that were passed  after the pleas of cities' procurators were taken into account, men knowledgeable of everyday reality, “given that  those in power cannot guess the particular situation and individual  circumstances pertaining to each country  and trade”.  The  second  aspect involves the change of customs and perceptions, as well as the slow rate at which the health and urbanization measures that were enforced more strictly from the government were incorporated to everyday life, beginning at the period of Bourbon reforms.

    Full Text Available Madeleine Oliver,1 Christopher Chiodo Ortiz,2 Jorge Ortiz31University of Toledo College of Medicine, Toledo, OH, 2Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, 3Department of Transplant Surgery, University of Toledo Medical Center, Toledo, OH, USA Abstract: Caring for liver transplant patients suffering from chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV infection is a challenging task for transplant surgeons and primary physicians alike. HCV is the leading cause of liver transplantation in the USA and comes with a myriad of complications that increase morbidity and mortality. This review focuses on patient follow-up, spanning from before the liver transplant occurs to the patient's long-term health. Pretransplant, both donor and recipient variables, must be carefully chosen to ensure optimal surgical success. Risk factors must be identified and HCV viral load must be reduced to a minimum. In addition to standard transplant complications, HCV patients suffer from additional problems, such as fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis and widespread viremia. Physicians must focus on the balance of immunosuppressive and antiviral medications, while considering possible side effects from these potent drugs. Over the years following surgery, physicians must identify any signs of failing liver health, as HCV-positive patients have an increased risk for cirrhosis and certain life-threatening malignancies. Keywords: liver transplant, hepatitis C virus, postoperative, cirrhosis, donor and recipient variables, viremia

    2018-06-01

    In the light of non-zero and relatively large value of rector mixing angle (θ13), we have performed a detailed analysis of texture one zero neutrino mass matrix Mν in the scenario of vanishing determinant/trace conditions, assuming the Dirac nature of neutrinos. In both the scenarios, normal mass ordering is ruled out for all the six possibilities of Mν, however for inverted mass ordering, only two are found to be viable with the current neutrino oscillation data at 3σ confidence level. Numerical and some approximate analytical results are presented.

El marco conceptual se centra en cuatro funciones: a generar recursos; b producir intervenciones; c financiar, y d «ejercer rectoría». Es a este nivel donde los actores pueden influir sobre el desempeño del sistema. Se identifican cinco retos para Latinoamérica: a extender (prepago y solidaridad la protección financiera; b estabilizar en el tiempo dicha protección para épocas de crisis; c equilibrar los recursos coherentemente con la capacidad de financiar servicios, d aumentar la eficiencia ubicativa y técnica al producir servicios, y e mejorar la función de rectoría de las demás funciones en los sectores público y privado (el más difícil y más importante reto hoy para los sistemas latinoamericanos. Se analiza luego la experiencia de reforma en Europa, presentando: a experiencias sobre protección financiera en los sistemas tipo Beveridge y Bismarck; b estabilidad en tiempos de crisis refrendada recientemente (Oeste y con graves obstáculos (Este; c el esfuerzo por equilibrar camas hospitalarias y profesionales sanitarios combinando regulación e incentivos; d un aumento de la eficiencia en la producción de servicios priorizando más expresamente, dando voz a los pacientes, descentralizando la gestión y con incentivos de mercado, y e una mejora de la rectoría no regulando menos sino mejor (y en algunos casos, más. Tres áreas de la experiencia europea sobresalen: a combinar solidaridad con sostenibilidad financiera; b introducir mesuradamente incentivos de mercado pero manteniendo un claro papel rector del Estado, y c adoptar innovaciones en la organizacíon y producción de servicios. Pese a las dificultades metodológicas, la convergencia de los retos y las «soluciones» adoptadas justifica este análisis, pero las enseñanzas deben contemplarse desde cada contexto nacional.

    An integral reactor on the basis of PWR technology is being conceptually developed at KAERI. Advanced technologies such as intrinsic and passive safety features are implemented in establishing the design concepts of the reactor to enhance the safety and performance. Research and development including laboratory-scale tests are concurrently underway for confirming the technical adoption of those concepts to the rector design. The power output of the reactor will be in the range of 100MWe to 600MWe which is relatively small compared to the existing loop type reactors. The detailed analysis to assure the design concepts is in progress. (author). 3 figs, 1 tab

    1987-01-01

    The SASSYS-1 LMR systems analysis code contains a model for transient analysis of heat removal by a RVACS (Reactor Vessel Auxiliary Cooling System) or a RACS (Reactor Air Cooling System) in an LMR (Liquid Metal Reactor). This air-side RVACS/RACS model is coupled with the sodium-side primary loop thermal hydraulics model in SASSYS-1 to give a complete treatment of the problem. Application of this model to an unprotected loss-of-flow event in the PRISM rector shows that in the long run the RVACS cooling is sufficient to prevent unacceptably high system temperatures in this case

    1986-03-01

    In the AUS neutronics code system, the burnup module CHAR solves the nuclide depletion equations by an analytic technique in a number of spatial zones. CHAR is usually used as one component of a lattice burnup calculation but contains features which also make it suitable for some global burnup calculations. BURNMAC is a simple accounting module based on the assumption that cross sections for a rector zone depend only on irradiation. BURNMAC is used as one component of a global calculation in which burnup is achieved by interpolation in the cross sections produced from a previous lattice calculation

    2014-01-01

    Sb from PHT (primary heat transfer) pump bearings of PHWRs (Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors) goes to the reactor core and gets activated to 121 Sb and 123 Sb. Subsequently, it deposits on out of core surface resulting in radiation exposure to station personnel's apparent high decontamination factors. Sb, thus deposited can't be impassivated by normal decontamination process. Earlier studies indicates lattice substitution of Sb +3 for Fe +2 in magnetite at low doping levels (≤5%). This process, at reactor conditions is yet to be well understood. To formulate an adequate decontamination formulation and methodology and for having insight at Sb deposition mechanism under rector conditions studies are performed

    Science.gov (United States)

    Larsen, Curtis E.; Irvine, Tom

    2013-01-01

    A comprehensive review of the available methods for estimating fatigue damage from variable amplitude loading is presented. The dependence of fatigue damage accumulation on power spectral density (psd) is investigated for random processes relevant to real structures such as in offshore or aerospace applications. Beginning with the Rayleigh (or narrow band) approximation, attempts at improved approximations or corrections to the Rayleigh approximation are examined by comparison to rainflow analysis of time histories simulated from psd functions representative of simple theoretical and real world applications. Spectral methods investigated include corrections by Wirsching and Light, Ortiz and Chen, the Dirlik formula, and the Single-Moment method, among other more recent proposed methods. Good agreement is obtained between the spectral methods and the time-domain rainflow identification for most cases, with some limitations. Guidelines are given for using the several spectral methods to increase confidence in the damage estimate.

    Full Text Available For over a century the people of Bahia Blanca, Argentinian port city located at the south west of the province of Buenos Aires, they have imagined it and defined it not only as part of the Patagonian territories but also as their legitimate political, economic and cultural center. The aim of historicizing and questioning this idea, trying to account for the interests that were mobilized, the ideological postures that hinted, and the impact it had on the effective regional layout, is what motivates our research. To that end, this article does focus on economic and infrastructural dimension that some debates of mid-twentieth century used simultaneously as evidence and as ultimate goal of this alleged hegemony. For this purpose, we will analyze the writings of Domingo Pronsato and Ricardo M. Ortiz whom, from different geopolitical perspectives, devised specific roles for the city that suited their plans for the regional development of Patagonia.

This type of analysis has been successfully used in many related climate research problems including the determination of corn/climate districts in Iowa (Ortiz-Valdez, 1985) and the classification of synoptic climate types (Davis, 1988). These general climate clusters may be more appropriate for climate research than the standard climate divisions (CD) groupings of climate stations, which are modifications of the agro-economic United States Department of Agriculture crop reporting districts. Unlike the CD's, these objectively determined climate clusters are not restricted by state borders and thus have reduced multicollinearity which makes them more appropriate for the study of the impact of climate and climatic change.

  3. Fracture and Fragmentation of Simplicial Finite Elements Meshes using Graphs

    Mota, A; Knap, J; Ortiz, M

    2006-10-18

    An approach for the topological representation of simplicial finite element meshes as graphs is presented. It is shown that by using a graph, the topological changes induced by fracture reduce to a few, local kernel operations. The performance of the graph representation is demonstrated and analyzed, using as reference the 3D fracture algorithm by Pandolfi and Ortiz [22]. It is shown that the graph representation initializes in O(N{sub E}{sup 1.1}) time and fractures in O(N{sub I}{sup 1.0}) time, while the reference implementation requires O(N{sub E}{sup 2.1}) time to initialize and O(N{sub I}{sup 1.9}) time to fracture, where NE is the number of elements in the mesh and N{sub I} is the number of interfaces to fracture.

  9. History of experimental psychology from an Estonian perspective.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Allik, Jüri

    2007-11-01

    A short review of the development of experimental psychology from an Estonian perspective is presented. The first rector after the reopening of the University of Dorpat (Tartu) in 1802, Georg Friedrich Parrot (1767-1852) was interested in optical phenomena which he attempted to explain by introducing the concept of unconscious inferences, anticipating a similar theory proposed by Herman von Helmholtz 20 years later. One of the next rectors, Alfred Wilhelm Volkmann (1800-1878) was regarded by Edwin Boring as one of the founding fathers of the experimental psychology. Georg Wilhelm Struve (1793-1864) played an essential part in solving the problem of personal equations. Arthur Joachim von Oettingen (1836-1920) developed a theory of music harmony, which stimulated his student Wilhelm Friedrich Ostwald (1853-1932) to study colour harmony. Emil Kraepelin (1856-1926), the founder of modern psychiatry, is by far the most important experimental psychologist who has worked in Estonia. His successor Wladimir von Tchisch (1855-1922), another student of Wilhelm Wundt, continued Kraepelin's work in experimental psychology. The lives of Wolfgang Köhler (1887-1967), who was born in Reval (Tallinn), and Oswald Külpe (1862-1915), who graduated from the University of Dorpat, extended the link between the history of experimental psychology and Estonia. Karl Gustav Girgensohn (1875-1925), the founder of the Dorpat School of the psychology of religion, stretched the use of experimental methods to the study of religious experience.

    Con motivo de la gentil designación de la Junta Directiva de la Academia a presentar el comentario a la exposición del académico Felipe Guhl, sobre el periodo americano de Charles Darwin en el siglo XIX, me pareció que debía buscar las fuentes de la eventual presencia de Darwin, o de sus ideas, en nuestro país. Así es que, muy brevemente, trataré de mostrar a Ustedes lo que encontré al respecto en tiempos pre-darwinistas -en lo que se denominaba el Nuevo Reino de Granada- y, luego, en tiempos post-darwinistas.

    Gracias a los trabajos sobre la ciencia en la Colonia que hemos venido desarrollando en el Instituto de Genética Humana en compañía del académico Jaime Bernal, lo primero que nos vino a la mente, al comentar sobre esta sesión en días pasados, fueron las páginas que habíamos leído en El Orinoco Ilustrado del padre José Gumilla, S.J. (1686-1750, publicado en 1741 casi cien años antes del viaje del Beagle. En el capítulo titulado “De las primeras gentes que pasaron a la América y el modo”, se refiere Gumilla a la hipótesis del padre José de Acosta, S.J. (1540-1600, quien en su obra Historia natural y moral de las indias, escrita en el Perú en 1590, había ya postulado el estrecho que el danés Vitus Bering (1681-1741 describiría casi 150 años después, en 1741, cuando El Orinoco ilustrado salía de la imprenta en España.

    Ayala, Vivian Luz

    In today's schools there are by far more students identified with learning disabilities (LD) than with any other disability. The U.S. Department of Education in the year 1997--98 reported that there are 38.13% students with LD in our nations' schools (Smith, Polloway, Patton, & Dowdy, 2001; U.S. Department of Education, 1999). Of those, 1,198,200 are considered ELLs with LD (Baca & Cervantes. 1998). These figures which represent an increase evidence the need to provide these students with educational experiences geared to address both their academic and language needs (Ortiz, 1997; Ortiz, & Garcia, 1995). English language learners with LD must be provided with experiences in the least restrictive environment (LRE) and must be able to share the same kind of social and academic experiences as those students from the general population (Etscheidt & Bartlett, 1999; Lloyd, Kameenui, & Chard, 1997) The purpose of this research was to conduct a detailed qualitative study on classroom interactions to enhance the understanding of the science curriculum in order to foster the understanding of content and facilitate the acquisition of English as a second language (Cummins, 2000; Echevarria, Vogt, & Short, 2000). This study was grounded on the theories of socioconstructivism, second language acquisition, comprehensible input, and classroom interactions. The participants of the study were fourth and fifth grade ELLS with LD in a science elementary school bilingual inclusive setting. Data was collected through observations, semi-structured interviews (students and teacher), video and audio taping, field notes, document analysis, and the Classroom Observation Schedule (COS). The transcriptions of the video and audio tapes were coded to highlight emergent patterns on the type of interactions and language used by the participants. The findings of the study intend to provide information for teachers of ELLs with LD about the implications of using classroom interactions point to

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ramos-Caro, Javier; Gonzalez, Guillermo A

    2008-01-01

    We present two formulations of Fokker-Planck-Rosenbluth-type (FPR) equations for many-particle self-gravitating systems, with first-order relativistic corrections in the post-Newtonian approach (1PN). The first starts from a covariant Fokker-Planck equation for a simple gas, introduced recently by Chacon-Acosta and Kremer (2007 Phys. Rev. E 76 021201). The second derivation is based on the establishment of an 1PN-BBGKY hierarchy, developed systematically from the 1PN microscopic law of force and using the Klimontovich-Dupree (KD) method. We close the hierarchy by the introduction of a two-point correlation function that describes adequately the relaxation process. This picture reveals an aspect that is not considered in the first formulation: the contribution of ternary correlation patterns to the diffusion coefficients, as a consequence of the nature of 1PN interaction. Both formulations can be considered as a generalization of the equation derived by Rezania and Sobouti (2000 Astron. Astrophys. 354 1110), to stellar systems where the relativistic effects of gravitation play a significant role

In the physics area the basic change with respect to the previous system (where the PRS groups were charged with detector and physics object reconstruction and physics analysis) was the split of the detector PRS groups (the old ECAL-egamma, HCAL-jetMET, Tracker-btau and Muons) into two groups each: a Detector Performance Group (DPG) and a Physics Object Group. The DPGs are now led by the Commissioning and Run Coordinator deputy (Darin Acosta) and will appear in the correspond¬ing column in CMS bulletins.

    CERN and CMS have again been in the spotlight in the past months, in the run-up to the LHC restart. Media interest has been fairly constant for the past year, with many journalists visiting and producing written articles as well as television documentaries and, more recently, news items. Of course activity grew exponentially in November: the number of visitors to our public web-site grew from about 1000 per day (corresponding to about 50000 hits per day) to more than 13000 on 25th November (nearly 5 million hits in a single day!). This increase in traffic coincided with a new addition to the web-site: a News section: http://cms.web.cern.ch/cms/News/index.html,  to relay in nearly real-time what is happening with CMS and the LHC. Two major parts of this section are the “e-commentary” (courtesy of Darin Acosta) and “CMSTV” (courtesy of Lucas Taylor). The latter is a collection of web-pages that show the status of the machine (the famous “page ...

  7. Is tetrahydrobiopterin a therapeutic option in diabetic hypertensive patients?

Endothelial function is altered in patients with coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease, and endothelial dysfunction correlates with the risk factor profile for a patient. Hypertension and type 2 diabetes are risk factors for vascular disease, and are both pathologies characterized by loss of NO activity. Indeed, endothelial dysfunction is usually present in diabetic and/or hypertensive patients. Tetrahydrobiopterin is an essential cofactor for the NO synthase enzyme, and insufficiency of this cofactor leads to uncoupling of the enzyme, release of superoxide, endothelial dysfunction, progression of hypertension, and finally, proatherogenic effects. Tetrahydrobiopterin is also an important mediator of NO synthase regulation in type 2 diabetes and hypertension, and may be a rational therapeutic target to restore endothelial function and prevent vascular disease in these patients. The aim of this paper is to review the rationale for therapeutic strategies directed to biopterins as a target for vascular disease in type 2 diabetic hypertensive patients.Keywords: tetrahydrobiopterin, endothelial dysfunction, diabetes, hypertension, oxidative stress, nitric oxide, eNOS synthase uncoupling

    A method for calculating of neutron termalization in heterogeneous rector core was developed. It is more precise than the diffusion method but more complcated. Concerning accuracy it is comparable to non-diffusion methods. Sonce the approach was analytical need for powerful computer is avoided and the description of physical phenomena is more transparent. Convergence is satsfactory. Constraints of the proposed method are: low neutron absorption in the moderator, negligible slowing down in the fuel, and big lattice pitch. The method is applicable for heavy water and graphite moderator systems. Based on the application of this method, procedures were developed for calculating thermal utilzation and neutron temperature. Since 1/v dependence of cross sections is not estimated this metof could be used for long-term reactivity changes.

    The unique confinement properties of the Reversed-Field Pinch (RFP) are exploited to examine physics and technical issues related to a compact, high-power-density fusion reactor. This resistive-coil, steady-state, toroidal device would use a dual-media power cycle driven by a fusion power core (FPC, i.e., plasma chamber, first wall, blanket, shield, and coils) with a power density and mass approaching values characteristic of pressurized-water fission rectors. A 1000-MWe(net) base case is selected from a comprehensive trade-off study to examine technological issues related to operating a high-power-density FPC. After describing the main physics and technology issues for this base-case reactor, directions for future study are suggested

    2009-01-01

    Civil engineering, mechanical and waste conditioning companies are working hard on the market of nuclear facilities dismantling. This market has a great future ahead of it in the ten years to come. According to the European Commission, 50 to 60 reactors among the 157 actually in service in the European Union should be dismantled by 2025. The cost per reactor is estimated to 10-15% of the initial investment, which represents an enormous amount of money, estimated to 20-39 billion euros for the only French nuclear park. In France, this market is shared by a core of about 20 companies, like Spie Nucleaire, Onet, Vinci (Nuvia) and Areva. Some dismantling sites require a specific skill, in particular those in relation with the research activity of the CEA (the French atomic energy commission) or involving specific technologies (research reactors, spent fuel reprocessing plants, sodium-cooled rectors..).

    Peru and France are to conclude an agreement to provide Peru with an astronomical observatory equipped with a 60-cm diameter telescope. The principal aims of this project are to establish and develop research and teaching in astronomy. Since 2004, a team of researchers from Paris Observatory has been working with the University of Cusco (UNSAAC) on the educational, technical and financial aspects of implementing this venture. During an international astronomy conference in Cusco in July 2009, the foundation stone of the future Peruvian Observatory was laid at the top of Pachatusan Mountain. UNSAAC, represented by its Rector, together with the town of Oropesa and the Cusco regional authority, undertook to make the sum of 300,000€ available to the project. An agreement between Paris Observatory and UNSAAC now enables Peruvian students to study astronomy through online teaching.

  7. Simulation of the transient behaviour of the Mulheim-Karlich nuclear power station and comparison with startup tests

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Burchhardt, W.; Weber, J.P.

    1987-01-01

    Among the startup tests of the Mulheim-Karlich nuclear power station an anticipated turbine trip and a rector trip have been performed. Calculations have been done for both tests by the authors using the computer codes DYNODE-P and ALMOD4. At a given reactor power the transient behavior of the plant is determined by the heat load of the once-through steam generators (OTSG), which in turn is governed by the integral control system. As expected the behavior of the plant after the trips can be exactly reproduced only if the bypass control system is completely modelled. In addition the heat transfer to the secondary side of the OTSG which governs the steam production has to be calculated close to reality. comparing the calculated results with the measured test data it is demonstrated that either code can be used to reproduce the transient behavior of the plant

    2013-01-01

    Biomedical ontologies are often large and complex, making ontology development and maintenance a challenge. To address this challenge, scientists use automated techniques to alleviate the difficulty of ontology development. However, for many ontology-engineering tasks, human judgment is still necessary. Microtask crowdsourcing, wherein human workers receive remuneration to complete simple, short tasks, is one method to obtain contributions by humans at a large scale. Previously, we developed and refined an effective method to verify ontology hierarchy using microtask crowdsourcing. In this work, we report on applying this method to find errors in the SNOMED CT CORE subset. By using crowdsourcing via Amazon Mechanical Turk with a Bayesian inference model, we correctly verified 86% of the relations from the CORE subset of SNOMED CT in which Rector and colleagues previously identified errors via manual inspection. Our results demonstrate that an ontology developer could deploy this method in order to audit large-scale ontologies quickly and relatively cheaply.

    Kim, Eui Kwang; Eoh, Jae Hyuk; Han, Ji Woong; Lee, Tae Ho

    2011-01-01

    Liquid metal reactors (LMRs) conventionally employ an intermediate heat transport system (IHTS) to protect the nuclear core during a sodium-water reaction (SWR) event. However these SWR-related components increase plant construction costs. In order to eliminate the need for an IHTS, a combined steam generator, which is an integrated heat exchanger of a steam generator and intermediate heat exchanger (IHX), was proposed by the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI). The objective of this work is to analyze the natural circulation heat removal capability of the rector system using a combined steam generator. As a means of decay heat removal, a normal heat transport path is composed of a primary sodium system, intermediate lead-bismuth circuit combined with SG and steam/water system. This paper presents the results of the possible temperature and natural circulation flows in all circuits during a steady state for a given reactor power level varied as a function of time

    We predicted the core uncovery time, the time that core exist temperature (CET) exceeds 1200 .deg. F, reactor vessel (RV) failure time and containment failure time by using the cascaded support vector regression (SVR) model. The proposed algorithms were trained and verified using the simulation data of MAAP code for the optimized power rector (OPR1000). In this study, we predicted transient scenarios by CSVR. The MAAP code was used to describe the accident situation and the 13 measured signal data was acquired and used. The CSVR model was developed to find out the transient scenarios by using short timeintegrated signals after reactor trip. The results show that the CSVR models can predict the transient scenarios accurately.

    This report documents a concept for a small-scale test involving between one and three Boiling Water Rector (BWR) high burnup (HBU) fuel assemblies. This test would be similar to the DOE funded High Burn-Up (HBU) Confirmatory Data Project to confirm the behavior of used high burn-up fuel under prototypic conditions, only on a smaller scale. The test concept proposed would collect data from fuel stored under prototypic dry storage conditions to mimic, as closely as possible, the conditions HBU UNF experiences during all stages of dry storage: loading, cask drying, inert gas backfilling, and transfer to an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) for multi-year storage.

  19. Contribution to solving the problem of neutron thermalization in heterogeneous reactor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Pop-Jordanov, J. P.

    1963-12-01

    A method for calculating of neutron termalization in heterogeneous rector core was developed. It is more precise than the diffusion method but more complcated. Concerning accuracy it is comparable to non-diffusion methods. Sonce the approach was analytical need for powerful computer is avoided and the description of physical phenomena is more transparent. Convergence is satsfactory. Constraints of the proposed method are: low neutron absorption in the moderator, negligible slowing down in the fuel, and big lattice pitch. The method is applicable for heavy water and graphite moderator systems. Based on the application of this method, procedures were developed for calculating thermal utilzation and neutron temperature. Since 1/v dependence of cross sections is not estimated this metof could be used for long-term reactivity changes

    This study was undertaken to evaluate the thermal response of a BWR Mark-I containment shell in the event of an accident severe enough for molten core materials to fall into the cavity beneath the rector vessel and eventually come into direct contact with the shell. An existing ORNL three-dimensional transient heat transport computer code, HEATING-6, was used for a specific 2-D case (and variations) for which representative melt/shell boundary conditions required as input were available from other studies. In addition to the use of HEATING-6, a simplified analytical steady-state correlation was developed and given the name BWR Liner Analysis Program (BWRLAP). BWRLAP was ''benchmarked'' by comparison with HEATING-6 and was then used to make a number of parametric calculations to investigate the sensitivities of the results to the inputs. 5 refs., 11 figs., 2 tabs

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kara, M.; Mattila, L.

    1996-01-01

    A small nation planning to make use of nuclear energy technology faces an important question: Is a nuclear energy programme just buying a rector and fuel from abroad? The Finnish experience says no. Making the best economic and technical choices depends on circumstances and good decisions can be based only on adequate research. Carrying out a successful nuclear energy programme demands high quality standards and, most importantly, nuclear safety is a national responsibility. Through training of personal and a deep understanding of the technology are necessary to meet these challenges. In Finland, comprehensive coverage of important scientific and technical aspects has been achieved economically by pooling the resources of all domestic parties having relevant expertise and by extensive international collaboration.

    Bamford, W.H.; Heinecke, C.C.; Balkey, K.R.

    1988-01-01

    For the past decade, significant attention has been focused on the subject of nuclear rector vessel integrity during pressurized thermal shock (PTS) events. The issue of low upper shelf fracture toughness at operating temperatures has been a consideration for some reactor vessel materials since the early 1970's. Deterministic and probabilistic fracture mechanics sensitivity studies have been completed to evaluate the interaction between the PTS and lower upper shelf toughness issues that result from neutron embrittlement of the critical beltline region materials. This paper presents the results of these studies to show the interdependency of these fracture considerations in certain instances and to identify parameters that need to be carefully treated in reactor vessel integrity evaluations for these subjects. This issue is of great importance to those vessels which have low upper shelf toughness, both for demonstrating safety during the original design life and in life extension assessments

    Full Text Available Learning quality constitutes one of the main challenges faced by Higher Education, thus a student centered teaching and the development of educational innovations that use active methodologies have been promoted. This article aims to evaluate the impact of using Just-in-Time Teaching and Peer Instruction on the results of teaching a subject, of disciplinary character, in 17 students of a career on an initial teacher training belonging to Chile’s Council of Rectors. A pre and postest model was applied between August and December 2012. The analysis used descriptive techniques that allowed the characterization of the admission profile and inferentials to explain, statistically, the observed differences in the performance of the subjects. In terms of perception, a positive assessment of the relationship between students and the teacher in the classroom was observed, this stood out above the improvement in the handling of disciplinary content.

  5. Heidegger’s Nacional Socialism or the abandonment of the things themselves

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Felipe Johnson

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available This paper problematizes Heidegger’s relationship with National Socialism in order to discuss how it stems from certain blindness in his own thinking. By focusing on the Black Notebooks, especially the volume that corresponds to the 1930s, we will analyze Heidegger’s critical position on Being and Time and his new intellectual inclinations, so that the horizon of sense be clarified in which Heidegger takes over factual political positions as rector of the University of Freiburg. So, we attempt to point out that both his philosophical approach and his political stance obey to a single context of problematics: both time and its historical political translation as destiny. From this primacy of time, we will investigate how Heidegger’s philosophy is led to a neglect of the immediate. Finally, this lability will be referred as the reason which explains that Heidegger’s thought, in the Black Notebooks, invalidates itself as philosophy.

    Full Text Available Hydrogen gas has tremendous potential as an environmentally acceptable energy carrier for vehicles. A cutting edge technology called a microbial electrolysis cell (MEC can achieve sustainable and clean hydrogen production from a wide range of renewable biomass and wastewaters. Enhancing the hydrogen production rate and lowering the energy input are the main challenges of MEC technology. MEC reactor design is one of the crucial factors which directly influence on hydrogen and current production rate in MECs. The rector design is also a key factor to up-scaling. Traditional MEC designs incorporated membranes, but it was recently shown that membrane-free designs can lead to both high hydrogen recoveries and production rates. Since then multiple studies have developed reactors that operate without membranes. This review provides a brief overview of recent advances in research on scalable MEC reactor design and configurations.

    SPND (Self-Powered Neutron Detector) has been developed to extend its lifespan. ENFMS (Ex-Core Flux Monitoring System) of pressurized water reactor has been also improved. After the development and improvement, their performance must be verified under the neutron irradiation environment. We used a research reactor for the performance verification of neutron detector and associated system because the research reactor can meet the neutron flux level of commercial nuclear reactor. In this paper, we report the performance verification method and result for the SPND and ENFMS using the research reactor. The performance tests for the SPND and ENFMS were conducted using UCI TRIGA reactor. The test environment of commercial reactor’s neutron flux level must be required. However, it is difficult to perform the test in the commercial rector due to the constraint of time and space. The research reactor can be good alternative neutron source for the test of neutron detectors and associated system.

    The tremendous social and political changes which have occurred during the recent decade in the former USSR made it possible to launch the process of commercialization of defense-related technologies in Russia. The so-called dual-use technologies are meant to be initially developed by the state for defense needs, but having a high commercial potential as well. To date, the process of such technology transfer from the state sector to a private one has been limited primarily by insufficient progress of the national private sector. Essentially, the main economic problem still remains the attraction of private capital for the promotion of dual-use technologies to the point at where they acquire commercially viable. A large number of advanced technologies are waiting to be commercialized. The report presented considers the prospects of civil use of some technologies related to the nuclear power area: space nuclear power systems, nuclear powered submarines and rector-pumped lasers.

    2013-05-01

    Between the 1930s and 1940s, Agostino Gemelli (1878-1959) was the main Italian psychologist; he accepted and promoted an empirical conception of psychology influenced by neo-Thomism. The views of Gemelli were a landmark for many psychologists and psychological models in Catholic universities. Gemelli, moreover, throughout his scientific activity, continued ongoing work of expertise in matters concerning science, morality, and psychology. He was a Franciscan monk but also an officer of the Italian air force, a psychologist, and a rector. During the period of fascist rule in Italy, Gemelli sought compromise solutions to foster the survival of psychological institutions. Around his story, contrasting interpretations have emerged. The aim of this article is to look at Agostino Gemelli as an important historical subject to understand the ways in which scientific enterprises and institutions are likely to be influenced by political regimes and by the dogmatic and intolerant milieu.

    Purpose: To improve the cutting performance to a level as comparable with that in air, as well as prevent the scattering of the radioactive materials upon cutting to the level as that in water cutting. Method: After igniting a gas cutting torch automatically, water spray by the local water sprayer is started by the actuation of a submerged pump, while a gas cutting manipulator is operated to cut the nuclear reactor pressure vessel. In this way, cutting exhaust gases resulted from the gas cutting torch are water-washed by the spray from the local water sprayer and falls within the nuclear rector pressure vessel in the form of water streams or droplets along the inner wall surface of the pressure vessel. Further, water is fed again to the local water sprayer by the submerged pump. (Kawakami, Y.)

    Understanding microstructural changes in reactor pressure vessel steels is important in order to evaluate radiation-induced embrittlement, one of the major aging phenomena affecting the extension of plant life. In this study, actual surveillance test specimens and samples of rector vessel low-alloy steel (A533B steel) irradiated in a research reactor were examined using state-of-the-art techniques to clarify the neutron flux effect on the microstructural changes. These techniques included small angle neutron scattering and atom probes. Microstructural changes which are considered to be the main factors affecting embrittlement, including the production of copper-rich precipitates and the segregation of impurity elements, were confirmed by the results of the study. In addition, the mechanical properties were predicted based on the obtained quantitative data such as the diameters of precipitates. Consequently, the hardening due to irradiation was almost simulated. (author)

    1985-01-01

    Purpose: To surely prevent the vibrational displacement of a rector core, and remove the sliding portions so as to avoid sticking or localized load concentration. Constitution: Cylindrical vibration-damping walls are protruded from the inner surface at the bottom of the main vessel. The vibration-damping walls constituted with outer and inner walls defining a coolant passage surround the reactor core support structures with small gaps between the inner surface of the inner wall and the outer circumferential surface of the core support structures. If the core support structures tend to displace horizontally due to earthquakes or the likes, the small gaps are varied and the coolants flow through the gap. Vibration-damping for the core support structures can be obtained by the flowing resistance to the coolants. (Yoshino, Y.)

    Helmut Renders

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available In 1747, John Wesley, spiritus rector of the Methodist movement, published the first edition of his medical guide Primitive Physic[k]. What was its purpose in a world where the Royal Academy, herbalists, healers / as, exorcists and quacks competed for the attention of the population? What is its legacy and limitation, considering the different interests of contemporary religious movements in Brazil? The article introduces the different groups who promoted or pretended to promote health in 18th century England and compares the contents of the guide Primitive Physic [k] with their proposals and therapeutic strategies. The conclusion is that a significant portion of the guide consists of guidelines of the Royal Academy of Medicine, but that it always favors homemade remedies with ingredients available to humbler classes. In relation to the socalled Spiritual Physick, prayer is mentioned as a complementary measure, but the practice of exorcism is totally ignored.

    This paper describes general features concerning development in the field of fast reactors in France from March 1980 to March 1981. It concentrates mainly on: Rapsodie, Phenix NPP, prototype reactor Super Phenix 1, future fast reactor NPPs and current research and development programs in the field. The present situation is as follows. Rapsodie has restarted operation but at reduced power in July 1980 because of the problems in the primary circuit which have not yet been solved. Phenic operates in a very satisfactory manner. Construction of Super Phenix is continuing normally. Research activities are performed sometimes for the needs of Super Phenix and sometimes for the needs of future fast rector projects like Super Phenix 2. International cooperation is being continued.

It was possible to rescue the responsibility concepts, social commitment and identify the elderly in the university, within the federal legislation, through bibliographical and documentary research. There was a survey of permanent education programs with at least 20 years, in 2016. It was carried out for the elderly in the 63 Brazilian Federal, and Public Universities and 17 cases were found. Thus, nine Pro-Rectors of Extension and a Unit Director accepted to participate in interviews by Skype or telephone, in the second semester of 2016, fulfilling the objective of describing the university authorities’ vision on the type of institutional support for such programs’ operation. Although it is possible to realize their relevance to the environment and the university, the institutional commitment is still far short of what is necessary.

    Kashima, Koichi

    1987-01-01

    Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) approach is newly developed as one of the tools to evaluate the structural integrity of nuclear components. This report describes the current status of PFM studies for pressure vessel and piping system in light water reactors and focuses on the investigations of the piping failure probability which have been undertaken by USNRC. USNRC reevaluates the double-ended guillotine break (DEGB) of rector coolant piping as a design basis event for nuclear power plant by using the PFM approach. For PWR piping systems designed by Westinghouse, two causes of pipe break are considered: pipe failure due to the crack growth and pipe failure indirectly caused by failure of component supports due to an earthquake. PFM approach shows that the probability of DEGB from either cause is very low and that the effect of earthquake on pipe failure can be neglected. (author)

  6. A personal-computer-based package for interactive assessment of magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and poloidal field coil design in axisymmetric toroidal geometry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kelleher, W.P.; Steiner, D.

    1989-01-01

    A personal-computer (PC)-based calculational approach assesses magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equilibrium and poloidal field (PF) coil arrangement in a highly interactive mode, well suited for tokamak scoping studies. The system developed involves a two-step process: the MHD equilibrium is calculated and then a PF coil arrangement, consistent with the equilibrium is determined in an interactive design environment. In this paper the approach is used to examine four distinctly different toroidal configurations: the STARFIRE rector, a spherical torus (ST), the Big Dee, and an elongated tokamak. In these applications the PC-based results are benchmarked against those of a mainframe code for STARFIRE, ST, and Big Dee. The equilibrium and PF coil arrangement calculations obtained with the PC approach agree within a few percent with those obtained with the mainframe code

    Three Nuclear Engineering Department classes make use of the reactor. Forty-eight students enrolled in NE 231 participated in a two-hour laboratory session introducing students to rector behavior characteristics. Twelve hours of reactor operating time were devoted to this session. NE 427 was offeed in the fall semester and had an enrollment of sixteen. Several NE 427 experiments use materials that are activated in the reactor. One experiment entitled Radiation Survey requires that students make measurements of radiation levels in and around the reactor laboratory. The irradiations in support of NE 427 and the radiation survey take place during normal isotope production runs, so no reactor time is specifically devoted to NE 427. The enrollment in NE 428 was twenty-four, as it was offered in both semesters

    On 16 February 1845 the Reverend W. H. Browne, rector of St John's Church in Launceston, Van Diemen's Land, wrote in his journal, "My dear Wife died very suddenly almost immediately after and in consequence of taking a preparation of Hyd. Cyan. Acid prepared & supplied by Dr Pugh". This journal entry raises a number of questions. Was Dr Pugh treating a condition which he thought merited that treatment or was it a ghastly mistake? Was Caroline Browne suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis? Was hydrocyanic acid an accepted treatment at that time? Did Mrs Browne take the wrong dose? Was an incorrect concentration of the drug prepared by Dr Pugh? Did he use the wrong pharmacopoeia in preparing the hydrocyanic acid? Why was there no inquest? Only some of these questions can be answered.

    Penetration of magnetic flux in YBa_2Cu_3O7 superconducting thin films and crystals in externally applied magnetic fields is visualized with a magneto-optical technique. A variety of flux patterns due to non-linear vortex behavior is observed: 1. Roughening of the flux front^1 with scaling exponents identical to those observed in burning paper^2. Two regimes are found where respectively spatial disorder and temporal disorder dominate. In the latter regime Kardar-Parisi-Zhang behavior is found. 2. Roughening of the flux profile similar to the Oslo model for rice-piles. 3. Fractal penetration of flux^3 with Hausdorff dimension depending on the critical current anisotropy. 4. Penetration as 'flux-rivers'. 5. The occurrence of commensurate and incommensurate channels in films with anti-dots as predicted in numerical simulations by Reichhardt, Olson and Nori^4. By comparison with numerical simulations, it is shown that most of the observed behavior can be explained in terms of non-linear diffusion of vortices. ^1R. Surdeanu, R.J. Wijngaarden, E.

    Full Text Available Philosophy and Social science school of MGIMO has received both nationwide and international recognition. The traditions of the school were laid by two highly respected scientists and science managers, George P. Frantsev, who was the rector MGIMO during the crucial period of its early years, and Alexander F. Shishkin, who was the founder and head of the Department of Philosophy. The former belonged to one of the best schools of antic history studies of the Petersburg (Leningrad University. Frantsev made a great contribution to the restoration of Russian social and political science after World War II. After graduating from MGIMO, he worked at the Foreign Ministry of USSR, and then served as a rector of the Academy of Social Sciences and chief-editor of the journal "Problems of Peace and Socialism" in Prague. He consistently supported MGIMO scientists and recommended them as participants for international congresses and conferences. Shishkin was born in Vologda, and studied in Petrograd during 1920s. His research interests included history of education and morality. He was the author of the first textbook on ethics in the postwar USSR. Other works Shishkin, including monograph "XX century and the moral values of humanity", played a in reorienting national philosophy from class interests to universal moral principles. During thirty years of his leadership of the Department of Philosophy, Shishkin managed to prepare several generations of researchers and university professors. Scientists educated by Shishkin students consider themselves to be his "scientific grandchildren". The majority of MGIMO post-graduate students followed the footsteps of Frantsev in their research, but they also were guided by Shishkin's ideas on morality in human relations. Philosophy and Social science school of MGIMO played an important role in the revival of Soviet social and political science.

    Full Text Available Introduction: the article deals with the gender role in the management of Russian universities. Materials and Methods: the authors used statistical and sociological methods of evaluating the Russian university management environment to find out composition and role of women directors in the institution of higher education. Results: the women are less able to influence decision-making processes at universities, although the share of women among top managers of higher education institutions tends to increase for last fifteen years, namely: at positions of deans of faculties – by 18%, at positions of vice rectors and managers of departments – by 15%, at rector positions – by 8%. That allows to state about active involvement of women into the higher education institution management. Besides, the barriers interfering with the women’s career development in the higher education are examined in the article. Firstly, the external factors which do not depend on women (gender stereotypes concerning female heads, gender asymmetry, informal arrangements on exclusively male vacancies, intervention of relatives capable to suppress career aspiration, secondly, the internal factors typical of women (need to be implemented in family life; unavailability to undertake responsibility; underestimation of personal leader potential. Primary groups of increase factors in personal competitiveness of female heads are identified.. Discussion and Conclusions: the authors draw conclusions on gender equality in the Russian universities management. They provide direction for the implementation of special gender researches. The article may be interesting to the experts investigating the problems of the higher education institution management and may be useful for administrative staff of the Russian universities, in particular, for women occupying the seniour management positions.

Por tanto, se impone retirar del proyecto la facultad de reservar medios demostrativos a la Fiscalía al efectuar la imputación o al solicitar la imposición de medida de aseguramiento, pues solo de tal manera podrán hacerse efectivos los principios rectores declarados en el mismo estatuto, con lo cual se garantizará el derecho a la defensa reconocido en la Constitución y en el bloque de constitucionalidad, a fin de hacer legítimo y válido materialmente el sistema procesal próximo a implantarse.

  1. Death Row Confessions and the Last Meal Test of Innocence

    Full Text Available Post hoc analyses of Rector v. Arkansas have regularly highlighted that the defendant requested that part of his last meal be saved so that he could it eat later. While the observation is typically raised as part of arguments that Rector was incompetent and unfit for execution, the more basic fact is that commentators have drawn important inferences about Rector’s mental state from how he treated his last meal. In this essay, we draw upon multiple disciplines in order to apply the same inferential logic to a much broader sample and explore the question of whether traditionally customized last meals might offer signals of defendants’ guilt or innocence. To investigate this, the content of last-meal requests and last words reported for people executed in the United States during a recent five-year period were examined. Consistent with the idea that declination of the last meal is equivalent to a signal of (self-perceived innocence, those who denied guilt were 2.7 times as likely to decline a last meal than people who admitted guilt (29% versus 8%. Consistent with the complementary theory that people who admit guilt are relatively more “at peace” with their sentence, these individuals requested 34% more calories of food than the rest of the sample (2786 versus 2085 calories. A third finding is that those who denied guilt also tended to eat significantly fewer brand-name food items. Previous discussions of last meals have often lacked quantitative measurements; however, this systematic analysis shows that last meal requests offer windows into self-perceived or self-proclaimed innocence. Knowing one’s last meal request and one’s last words can provide valuable new variables for retrospectively assessing the processes that led to past executions.

During a Stroop task, concomitant N200, P300, and N450 event-related potentials were measured in 25 founder entrepreneurs and in age-matched and gender-matched nonfounders/nonentrepreneurs (NFNE. Reaction times were shorter among founder entrepreneurs. The N200 was shorter and N450 larger in founder entrepreneurs. The personalities of both groups were measured using the Temperament and Character Inventory-Revised. Founder entrepreneurs scored significantly higher in novelty-seeking and self-directedness dimensions, as well as in exploratory excitability, impulsiveness, optimism, eagerness, and responsibility subdimensions. Possible interactions among candidate variables to differentiate between founder entrepreneurs versus NFNE were also addressed, and the model including impulsivity, N450 latency, and impulsivity*N450 interaction came up as the best model for discrimination between founder entrepreneurs and NFNE. A shorter N200, mostly associated with bilateral supplementary motor area activation, revealed a faster capability to make decisions when information was noncongruent or blurred. However, the larger N450 revealed a more intense post-evaluation cognitive process happening in founder entrepreneurs and was accompanied by a greater activation of anterior frontal regions. The whole decision-making process consumed more time and resources in founder entrepreneurs, even if its closure was faster. Attention, memory, and alertness, among other factors, have been invoked

    Freed, Allison

    This study was conducted with undergraduate students at a large university to investigate the association between environmental identity, pro-environmental behaviors and environmental decision-making. This study explored how environmental identity as defined by Clayton (2003) influenced the type of pro-environmental behaviors individuals choose to participate in. Environmental decision-making based on Kahneman's (2003, 2011) System 1 and System 2 framework was also assessed in association with environmental identity. A survey including the Environmental Identity Survey (Clayton, 2003), the Environmentally Responsible Behaviors Index (Smith-Sebasto & D'Acosta, 1995), and a Decision Making Questionnaire were administered. After administering the surveys, eight participants were chosen for a 60-minute interview. The quantitative results of the study showed there was a significant relationship between environmental identity and participating in environmental behaviors more often. There was also a significant relation between environmental identity and making the decision to recycle in a fast and automatic way. The interview results showed that participants with both a strong and a weak environmental identity recycled often and thought it was a fast decision. The results of this study show that certain components of environmental identity are important, but other factors like the physical environment and social norms influence the thinking that goes into recycling more than environmental identity alone. This study provides evidence of the importance of social norms and environmental structures in fostering pro-environmental behaviors and influencing the type of thinking that goes into making environmental decisions. Keywords: environmental identity, environmental behaviors, System 1, System 2, recycling.

    Full Text Available The role of mentoring for women in sports industry has gathered attention among researchers in the past years (Bower, 2009; Bower, & Hums 2009, 2014; Weaver, & Chelladurai, 1999, 2002. Since few women are in leadership positions (Acosta, & Carpenter, 2014, cross-gender mentoring relationships are more likely to happen (Hopkins et al., 2008. However, according to Kram (1985, cross-gender mentoring relationships are more complex in terms of individual development and quality of the developmental relationship. In particular, role modeling function is limited (Kram, 1985. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the functions of the same gender mentoring relationships looking at coach Pat Summitt, the winningest coach in NCAA Division I basketball history and a woman in leadership position (Becker & Wrisberg, 2008. Due to the exploratory nature of the study and the huge impact of Pat Summitt on sport (Janssen, & Dale, 2002, De Marco, & Mccullick, 1997, a single case study design to analyze her relationships from the staff and players’ perspectives was utilized as the method for data collection. This study collected data published on American news sites located using Internet search engines Google News (http://www.google.com for 7 days. The dataset included content published through national and regional online news media, radio, television and entertainment websites and blogs. Texts were qualitatively reviewed with a content analysis and coded (Patton, 2002. This study identified career and psychosocial functions that were important in developing an effective mentoring relationships. In particular, the psychosocial functions of “role modeling” was identified as the most important for the relationship. In fact a female mentor as a role model can be perceived as a woman that has successfully overcome discriminatory barriers to career advancement.

    There is no information in Colombia on Mycobacterium leprae primary and secondary drug resistance in regards to the WHO-multidrug therapy regime. On the other hand, public health authorities around the world have issued various recommendations, one of which prompts for the immediate organization of resistance surveillance through simple molecular methods. To determine the prevalence of Mycobacterium leprae drug resistance to rifampicin, ofloxacin and dapsone in untreated and previously treated patients at the Centro Dermatológico Federico Lleras Acosta during the 1985-2004 period. We conducted a retrospective study which included multibacillary patient biopsies through elective sampling: 381 of them from new patients and 560 from previously treated patients. Using a microtome, we obtained six slides from each skin biopsy preserved in paraffin, and we extracted M. leprae DNA. We amplified three molecular targets through PCR and obtained the patterns of drug resistance to dapsone, rifampicin and ofloxacin by reverse hybridization. Finally, we collected epidemiological, clinical and demographical data for analyses. From 941 samples under study, 4.14% of them were resistant to one or more drugs, and 5.77 and 3.04% had resistant genotypes in new and previously treated patients, respectively. Total resistance for each drug was 0.43% for dapsone, 3.19% for rifampicin and 1.17% for ofloxacin. We found statistically significant differences for rifampicin and for the total population when comparing the results from untreated versus previously treated patients. Two thirds of the resistant samples were resistant to rifampicin alone or combined. The standard multidrug therapy schemes continue being effective for leprosy cases; however, it is necessary to guarantee adherence and regularity. Surveillance to drug resistance in new and previously treated leprosy cases should be established.

    In order to bring out a functional and sustainable land use in a highly contaminated mine tailing, firstly environmental risks have to be reduced or eliminated by suitable reclamation activities. Tailing ponds pose environmental hazards, such as acidity and toxic metals reaching to waters through wind and water erosions and leaching. As a consequence, soils have no vegetation and low soil organic matter and nutrients. Various physicochemical and biochemical properties, together with exchangeable metals were measured before, 6 months and 12 months after the application of marble waste and pigs manure as reclamation strategy in a tailing pond from SE Spain to reduce hazards for environment and human health. Three months after the last addition of amendments, eight different native shrub species where planted for phytostabilization. Results showed the pH increased up to neutrality. Aggregates stability, organic carbon, total nitrogen, cation exchange capacity, bioavailable phosphorus and potassium, microbial biomass and microbial activity increased with the application of the amendments, while exchangeable metals drastically decreased (~90%). After one year of plantation, only 20% planted species died, with a high growth of survivals reaching flowering and fructification. This study confirms the high effectiveness of initial applications of marble wastes together with pig manure and plantation of shrub species to initialize the recovery of the ecosystem in bare mine soils under Mediterranean semiarid conditions. Key Words: pig manure, marble waste, heavy metals, mine soil. Acknowledgements This work has been funded by the European Union LIFE+ project MIPOLARE (LIFE09 ENV/ES/000439). J.A.

    Full Text Available Gabriel Ortiz1, Len Fromer21Pediatric Pulmonary Services, El Paso, TX; 2Department of Family Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USAAbstract: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD is a progressive and debilitating but preventable and treatable disease characterized by cough, phlegm, dyspnea, and fixed or incompletely reversible airway obstruction. Most patients with COPD rely on primary care practices for COPD management. Unfortunately, only about 55% of US outpatients with COPD receive all guideline-recommended care. Proactive and consistent primary care for COPD, as for many other chronic diseases, can reduce hospitalizations. Optimal chronic disease management requires focusing on maintenance rather than merely acute rescue. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH, which implements the chronic care model, is a promising framework for primary care transformation. This review presents core PCMH concepts and proposes multidisciplinary team-based PCMH care strategies for COPD.Keywords: Patient-Centered Medical Home, chronic care model, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, patient education, physician assistants, nurse practitioners

    The aim of this review is to evaluate the levels of clinical evidence for bone replacement grafts available in the United States for periodontics and oral implantology purposes. A search was performed using PubMed, the Cochrane Library, and Google Scholar for articles relating to the use of bone replacement grafts in implant and/or periodontics by two independent reviewers. Articles unrelated to the topic, not involving patients, not including abstracts, or in languages other than English were excluded. Selected articles were graded according to "levels of evidence" based on guidelines originally introduced by Wright et al. (2003). There was limited published peer-reviewed clinical literature available regarding US commercially available bone replacement grafts in periodontics and oral implantology. Of 144 bone replacement grafts available in the United States according to Avila-Ortiz et al. (2013), only 52 met the inclusion criteria. The majority of materials used were allografts (26 of 93 available in the United States), followed by alloplasts (15 of 30) and xenografts (11 of 21). Dental providers should be aware of the limited evidence that qualified for a strong rating supporting the clinical efficacy of these materials for periodontics and oral implantology purposes using the inclusion criteria selected in this study.

    Abstract Based on phylogenetic and morphological evidence, Tridimeris chiapensis Escobar-Castellanos & Ortiz-Rodr., sp. n. (Annonaceae), a new species from the karst forest of southern Mexico, is described and illustrated. The new species differs from Tridimeris hahniana, the only described species in the genus, in that the latter has flowers with sepals densely tomentose outside, one (rarely two) carpel(s) per flower and fruits densely covered with golden-brown hairs, while Tridimeris chiapensis has flowers with glabrous sepals outside, two to five carpels per flower and glabrous fruits. Furthermore, a shallow triangular white patch at the base of the inner petals is found in Tridimeris chiapensis, a morphological character shared with the sister genus Sapranthus but absent in Tridimeris hahniana. Geographically, both species occur allopatrically. With just one known locality and seven individuals of Tridimeris chiapensis recorded in one sampling hectare, and based on application of the criteria established by the IUCN, we conclude tentatively that the species is critically endangered.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho objetiva analisar a significação do conceito de slow fashion, presente nos interstícios da linguagem da moda e disseminado nas mídias sociais, no intuito de desvendar os pressupostos ideológicos contidos no uso deste termo como forma de combater o trabalho escravo na sociedade Imperialista. Para concretizar este estudo realizou-se uma pesquisa ancorada no referencial teórico de Vigotski (2007, 2009 e de Ortiz (2009, 2011. As análises dos dados revelam que não basta refletir sobre a descartabilidade da moda e aderir ao slow fashion como principal linha de ação para lutar contra o trabalho escravo nas cadeias produtivas da indústria da moda. A questão que prioritariamente se coloca é como perscrutar e enfrentar as imposições de um sistema econômico que se reestrutura de modo contínuo, no intuito de reinar soberano, reengendrando novas formas de organização de trabalho extremamente injustas, desiguais e desumanas.
