    The author of this article revisits Simon Ortiz's poem, "From Sand Creek," in which the latter can in so few words convey both the horrific tragedy of conquest and colonization, while at the same time find a space for possibility, a means for recovery that is never about forgetting but always occurs as a kind of recuperative remembering.

  3. 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.

    Full Text Available In his latest book, Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz remembers people and places of their own existence. He reflects on poetry and emphasizes the importance of tradition. The past lives in words of beauty and emotion, which break the distance between past and present. The soothing power of the verses, sarcasm and irony, relieve resignation over time. The only certainty is life as a journey for the pilgrim. 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 No solo la filosofía, sino también la política, economía, cultura y educación latinoamericanas parecen seguir la tendencia europea; sin ánimode comprender el propio mundo en torno, hay un esfuerzo por modularla realidad a las leyes y principios ajenos, cuando debería ser al revés.Esta tendencia tiene sus raíces en la definición del habitante de las tierras de ultramar durante la segunda escolástica. Cuando América fuedescubierta por los españoles, las discusiones acerca de lo que el serhumano podía ser ya estaban casi cerradas, las especies en el arca deNoé ya estaban contabilizadas, las certezas del mundo ya estaban aseguradas por los bien definidos contornos escolásticos. El sílabo de filosofía que José de Acosta propone es una interpretación de Aristóteles que linda con la heterodoxia y que, al mismo tiempo, supone un conceptodel indígena americano que, aunque no lo ubica como descendiente deAdán, permite su evangelización.

  15. 'An All Too Present Absence: Fernando Ortiz's Work on Abaku? in its Sociocultural Context

    Stephan Palmié

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available Focusses on the Abukuá associations, Afro-Cuban male initiatory secret societies, as such originated in Regla, Havana in 1836. Authors describe how Abakuá titleholders gained powerful social and labour positions in the Havana area, and how they were eventually outlawed in 1876. They point out how Abakuá societies by and since then were designated as negative and criminal in the public sphere, and condemned by many writers and politicians. They show how published accounts of Abakuá since the late 19th c and early 20th c. were thus seldom merely descriptive, but were presented as proof of Cuba's lagging modernity, and of a for some undesired Africanization. They further relate how Fernando Ortiz's studies and work on Abakuá fit in this. They note how Ortiz' s earlier "criminal anthropology" work on Abakuá was in the same negative and criminalizing vein, yet they point at changes, as in time he described and evaluated Abakuá as more positive, and as part of Cuban culture. They describe how Ortiz dedicated much effort to studying different aspects of Abakuá, and that extensive notations on these became part of his archive, which, as he told fellow-scholars, he would work out in an eventual monograph on Abakuá. The authors deplore that this monograph was not only never published, but also seems to have been lost.

Consciente de la importancia histórica de la USAL tanto en Europa como en Latinoamérica, siendo para esta última una referencia indiscutida, Berdugo responde cómo concibe la institución el hecho de ser una fuente de producción de dos culturas: la tradicionalmente humanista y la cada vez más pujante cultura científica.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The International marketing efforts of PT BATAN Teknologi's fuel element for research reactors are out line. These efforts intensively started in third year marketing time since it is commenced on 24 May 1996. The market segmentation told that there are 269 research reactors in the world, I.e. 65 in USA, 27 in Russia, 18 in Japan, and the remaining are in many Countries. Many of those are 78 swimming fool type reactors, and 17 of them, I.e. 4 in Japan, 4 in USA, and each Austria, Germany, Argentina, Iran, Pakistan, Peru, Brazil, Algeria and Indonesia have the similar fuel element specifications with are close related with PT BATAN Teknologi's. It can be predicated that around 38 fuel elements and 84 fuel control can be marketed. The first feasibility study told that for countries such as Peru, Pakistan, Iran, Algeria, became the potential marketing target of the BATAN Teknologi's fuel element, because for those countries the competitors in producing such fuel elements could be minimal. The fuel elements and fuel control which could be presumably marketed in those countries are 83 and 19 respectively. The problem will be facing in near future such as packaging design and nuclear fuel transportation have to be firstly solved by collaborating with foreign companies abroad. Non technical problems including political situation have to be completely studied in order the uranium, transfer to many countries for exporting purpose could easily take place in the future. The government of the Republic of Indonesia (in this case BATAN) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) could assist to solve the non technical problems which might be appear in the future as the chance of the exporting the fuel elements and the fuel controls come true.

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

  19. An innovative approach to dynamics modeling and simulation of the molten salt rector experiment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE) was a circulating fuel thermal reactor built and operated in the sixties. As the only Molten Salt Reactor (MSR) testing facility for which extensive experimental data are available, it can be considered as a reference for the development of modeling approaches for the studies related to the Gen-IV MSR. In this work, a geometric multi-scale approach has been adopted for the simulation of the MSRE plant. The data and the experimental results relative to the U-233 fuelled reactor are considered. The neutronic parameters have been determined using the Monte Carlo code Serpent. The reactor core is divided into three radial regions, each one described by a 3D channel in which Navier-Stokes and energy conservation equations plus delayed neutron precursors (DNP) balance equations are solved. Determination of the generated power is obtained employing a point kinetics like equation, fed with importance weighted values of temperatures and DNP concentrations. The remaining part of the plant, that includes the primary and secondary cooling circuits, is modeled by means of zero-dimensional components. The results attained with such modeling approach are compared with experimental data both in time and frequency domain, showing good agreement. The adopted approach, thanks to the punctual, coupled solution of the governing equations in the core, gives better insights into the thermal behavior of the graphite and its effects on MSR dynamics than commonly used correlation-based solvers.

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available Taking as a starting point some excerpts from the Sermão da Sexagésima, by Fr. António Vieira, this paper investigates what role the development of rhetoric in the Baroque period might have played in the articulation of a new language pattern, always about to dismantle substancialist views about the world. Based upon some unexpected parallels, as the sole names of Homer, Pindar and Torquato Tasso may suggest, it is argued that the tension between rhetorical world and ontological world is so decisive for understanding Baroque as the tension between the earthly and the divine.

  8. Excerpt from Triangulations: Narrative Strategies for Navigating Latino Identity

    David J. Vázquez

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Just as mariners use triangulation, mapping an imaginary triangle between two known positions and an unknown location, so, David J. Vázquez contends, Latino authors in late twentieth-century America employ the coordinates of familiar ideas of self to find their way to new, complex identities. Through this metaphor, Vázquez reveals how Latino autobiographical texts, written after the rise of cultural nationalism in the 1960s, challenge mainstream notions of individual identity and national belonging in the United States.In a traditional autobiographical work, the protagonist frequently opts out of his or her community. In the works that Vázquez analyzes in Triangulations, protagonists instead opt in to collective groups—often for the express political purpose of redefining that collective. Reading texts by authors such as Ernesto Galarza, Jesús Colón, Piri Thomas, Oscar “Zeta” Acosta, Judith Ortiz Cofer, John Rechy, Julia Alvarez, and Sandra Cisneros, Vázquez engages debates about the relationship between literature and social movements, the role of cultural nationalism in projects for social justice, the gender and sexual problematics of 1960s cultural nationalist groups, the possibilities for interethnic coalitions, and the interpretation of autobiography. In the process, Triangulations considers the potential for cultural nationalism as a productive force for aggrieved communities of color in their struggles for equality.

    Hace unos pocos días la prensa nos contaba como dos ingenios atómicos estallaban en Atolones del Pacífico, esas dos explosiones conmovían al mundo y la onda explosiva de esas dos bombas de hidrógeno tocaron a los académicos de todas partes. Desafortunadamente pocos se sintieron en Colombia, pero llegaron al corazón de Europa y de Asia; tocaron al mundo y tocaron a los académicos que de alguna manera habían sido sus creadores. Esas dos bombas de hidrógeno eran apenas los experimentos hechos por una misión de varios que las tienen y apenas son experimentos de muchos que comenzaron siendo experimentos sobre seres humanos. Dos bombas atómicas habían explotado ya hace 50 años, mas o menos para los mismos días, sobre dos ciudades del Japón, una de ellas disparada a las ocho y cuarto de la mañana, cuando la gente iba al trabajo, y se encontraba fuera de los refugios antiaéreos; apenas unos pocos bombarderos, en una ciudad que estaba acostumbrada a ver oleada tras oleada de bombarderos; para no despertar temor la lanzaron a la altura necesaria para producir la mayor destrucción posible; eso lo habían hecho académicos.

Si bien la literatura económica es incipiente y más abundante fuera de nuestras fronteras cada vez es mayor el número de publicaciones que estudian la situación en España. De acuerdo con Mateos Escot y Gimeno (2006 en las llamadas sociedades de participación democrática la implicación directa de las mujeres en la gestión es mayor que en otro tipo de organizaciones. Sin embargo, los estudios realizados muestran una desigual participación de las mujeres directivas en el perfil de estas entidades (Berenguer, Cerver, de la Torre y Torcal, 2004. Un mayor número de mujeres en los consejos representativos de las cooperativas puede ayudar a que las condiciones de trabajo mejoren y se consiga un equilibrio económico, social y cultural en este tipo de organizaciones (Fregidou-Malama, 2004. En este estudio se analiza la presencia femenina en los órganos de gobierno de estas entidades y se compara con los tipos de cooperativas gestionadas por mujeres con el propósito de examinar si existen asociaciones entre ellas. Al mismo tiempo, se relaciona el periodo de creación de la entidad con la participación femenina, con el fin de observar la evolución de la responsabilidad de las mujeres en distintos intervalos de tiempo. / In the last years, the number of works that analyse the situation of women on boars of directors in the profit and not for profit organizations has increased.

However, some studies show an unequal participation of women in the management of these entities (Berenguer, Cerver, de la Torre y Torcal, 2004. A bigger number of women on boards of cooperatives can help to improve the employ conditions and to get an economic, social and cultural balance in this type of organizations (Fregidou-Malama, 2004. In this paper we analyze the presence of women on the boards of these entities and we compare with the types of cooperatives managed by women with the aim of check if there are associations among them.

    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

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.

    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.

    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.

    We calculate exactly the quasinormal frequencies of Klein-Gordon and Dirac test fields propagating in two-dimensional uncharged Achucarro-Ortiz black hole. For both test fields we study whether the quasinormal frequencies are well defined in the massless limit. We use their values to discuss the classical stability of the quasinormal modes in uncharged Achucarro-Ortiz black hole and to check the recently proposed Time Times Temperature bound. Furthermore we extend some of these results to the charged Achucarro-Ortiz black hole.

    This special issue of JMPS collects fifteen articles of current research that share one common feature: the leading authors of the papers are connected to Professor Michael Ortiz in many ways - as former students, postdocs, colleagues, or long term collaborators. More importantly, all contributors to this special issue persevere in keeping professional links with him, some of them after several years of intense and productive collaboration. The reason for this special issue is the celebration of the 60th birthday of Michael Ortiz.

    Full Text Available The family Baetidae is the most diverse family into the Order Ephemeroptera and it has an almost cosmopolitan distribution. The genus Americabaetis Kluge was described in 1992 and actually it has 19 known species with a clearly Neotropical distribution. Although this genus is very common in lotic aquatic systems, it has been poorly studied in Argentina. Herein, we report four species for this country originally described from Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay: A. labiosus Lugo-Ortiz & McCafferty, A. longetron Lugo-Ortiz & McCafferty, A. mecistognathus Salles & Raimundi, A. titthion Lugo-Ortiz & McCafferty.La familia Baetidae es la familia más diversa dentro del orden Ephemeroptera y tiene prácticamente una distribución cosmopolita.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hernán Neira

    2012-01-01

    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.

El trabajo del Dr. Solón Núñez, era redireccionado por el del Dr. Acosta Guzmán, hacia la Corte Suprema de Justicia. El paradigma ingles del Dr. Núñez por la Medicatura Forense, se enfrentaba al paradigma alemán del Dr. Acosta por el Organismo Médico Forense, este paradigma superó al de 1949. Hubo que hacer arreglos y convenios, lo nuevo no era completo, ni perfecto, ni absoluto, pero obedecía a un imaginario social instituyente.

    Experimental approaches to neutrino mass include kinematic mass measurements, neutrino oscillation searches at rectors and accelerators, solar neutrinos, atmospheric neutrinos, and single and double beta decay. 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.

    Johannes Jacobus van Loghem (1878-1968) had a multifaceted career in which he combined microbiology, immunology, genetics, epidemiology and hygiene. He first became a professor of Tropical Hygiene and later a professor of Hygiene and Medical Enforcement. He discovered the role of house rats in the dissemination of the plague, which contributed to the fight against an epidemic on Java, then the Netherlands' East Indies, in 1911. He was rector of the University of Amsterdam at the outbreak of the Second World War and was fired because of his anti-German stance. From the offices of the Nederlandsch Tijdschrift voor Geneeskunde (Dutch Journal of Medicine), he developed plans for reconstructing the university after the war; he later became the university's first post-war rector. Van Loghem contributed to columns in this journal for over 40 years and twice acted as interim editor-in-chief. PMID:18225796

Controlled reaction is proposed in which SiF4-pressurized vertical reactor operates with two temperature zones. Liquid sodium feeds from nozzle at top of rector without reacting with SiF4. When sodium reaches higher temperature region at bottom, reaction takes place immediately.

  4. Waves for Alpha-Channeling in Mirror Machines

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    A. I. Zhmoginov and N. J. Fisch

    2009-07-08

    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.

    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.

  4. The low frequency Western Mediterranean summer variability: relevance, feedbacks and predictability.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jose, Ortizbevia Maria; Antonio, Ruizdeelvira; Francisco Jose, Alvarez-Garcia; Miguel, Tasambay-Salazar

    2016-04-01

    In a recent study, OrtizBeviá et al. (2012) have defined a seasonal index, the Western Mediterranean Index, in order to characterize the Western Mediterranean summer variability. They have found there a statistically significant feedback between the Mediterranean and the North Pacific variability, characterized by the Pacific North America Mode Index. They have detected also a feedback between the Western Mediterranean in summer and the variability of some areas of the North Atlantic basin. Based on these statistical linear relationship they proposed a model to forecast the part of the Western Mediterranean variability represented by the Western Mediterranean Index in summer and autumn and validate it through some hindcast experiments, with a moderate, but significant skill. OrtizBeviá et al.(2012) presented also the evidence of the existence of a low frequency, multidecadal component in the Western Mediterranean summer variability. In the work to be presented here we extend the previous one, focusing on the long term variability. We perform similar statistical analysis on selected data fields that span more than 100 years. We add a second index to the characterisation of the Western Mediterranean variability and are then able to show the relevance of the Western Mediterranean summer variability for european air temperature and precipitation seasonal anomalies. Our analyses show that the variability represented by two North Atlantic Indexes play a key role in the Western Mediterranean summer variability. They also proof the existence of a feedback between this variability and that of the Pacific North America Mode, for an extended period of more than 140 years. The performance of the different predictive models built on the basis of those linear relationships are tested in a series of hindcast experiments. References Ortiz Beviá, M. J.; Alvarez García

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: to describe the procedure which could be useful for teachers and speech therapists engaged within a school context, in the treatment of the phonological mistakes exhibited by children during their primary-school education. It is an attempt to present an intra-subject study and to observe the generalization suffered by the untrained phonemes and processes during the training of a phoneme. METHODS: two children with phonological impairment participated in this research. A Test of Phonology Acosta et al. (1998 was used for the analysis of the simplifications and, later on, an intervention program by minimal pairs was applied. RESULTS: the results seem to indicate that the treatment should start with the process affecting more phonemes and that the most difficult; for example, the phoneme where the process is compulsory applied, should be chosen as the one to be trained. CONCLUSION: the results showed that treatment must begin with the process that affects a major number of phonemes which have more difficulty in their production.OBJETIVO: descrever procedimento de intervenção fonológica. MÉTODOS: duas crianças com transtorno fonológico participaram do estudo. Foi aplicada a prova de Fonologia de Acosta et al. (1998 para o levantamento das simplificações e, posteriormente, aplicado o programa de intervenção por pares mínimos. RESULTADOS: observou-se generalização dos fonemas e processos fonológicos não treinados durante o tratamento. CONCLUSÃO: os resultados indicam que o tratamento deve começar por aqueles processos que afetam um maior número de fonemas e que apresentam maior dificuldade em sua produção.

Trata-se de uma desconstrução de enunciados que identificam tais mulheres ora com o sagrado, ora com o profano, - reveladores das concepções espanholas de gênero e religião que presidiram a construção das diferenças, desigualdades, hierarquias e relações entre incas e espanhóis, e entre homens e mulheres no processo de conquista e colonização dos incas.This article presents an analysis of the representations of the priestesses of the sun - the acclas - transmitted in the chronicles of three Spaniards of the sixteenth's century: the Jesuit José de Acosta, the Crown's official Sarmiento of Gamboa and the mercedarian friar Martín de Murúa.

    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.

    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.

    The Mt. Taylor volcanic field and Lucero uplift of west-central New Mexico occur in a transitional-boundary zone between the tectonically active Basin-and Range province (Rio Grande rift) and the less tectonically active Colorado plateau. The general geomorphology and Cenozoic erosional history has been discussed primarily in terms of a qualitative, descriptive context and without the knowledge of lithospheric processes. The first discussion of geomorphic surfaces suggested that the erosional surface underlying the Mt. Taylor volcanic rocks is correlative with the Ortiz surface of the Rio Grande rift. In 1978 a study supported this hypothesis with K-Ar dates on volcanic rocks within each physiographic province. The correlation of this surface was a first step In the regional analysis of the boundary zone; however, little work has been done to verify this correlation with numerical age dates and quantitatively reconstruct the surface for neotectonic purposes. Those geomorphic surfaces inset below and younger than the ``Ortiz`` surface have been studied. This report provides a summary of this data as well as unpublished data and a conceptual framework for future studies related to the LANL ISR project.

  4. Fundamental studies of chemical vapor deposition diamond growth processes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We are developing laser spectroscopic techniques to foster a fundamental understanding of diamond film growth by hot filament chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Several spectroscopic techniques are under investigation to identify intermediate species present in the bulk reactor volume, the thin active volume immediately above the growing film, and the actual growing surface. Such a comprehensive examination of the overall deposition process is necessary because a combination of gas phase and surface chemistry is probably operating. Resonantly enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) techniques have been emphasized. A growth rector that permits through-the-substrate gas sampling for REMPI/time-of-flight mass spectroscopy has been developed. 7 refs., 2 figs

  20. Design study on advanced reprocessing systems for FR fuel cycle

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A design study has been carried out for four advanced reprocessing technologies for the future fast rector (FR) recycle systems (advanced aqueous, and three non-aqueous systems based on oxide electrowinning, metal electrorefining, and fluoride volatility methods). The systems were evaluated mainly from the viewpoint of economics. It has been shown that, for MOX fuel reprocessing, all the systems with a capacity of 200 t/y attains the economical target, whereas for such a small capacity as 50 t/y, only the non-aqueous systems have potential to attain the target. For metallic and nitride fuel, a metal electrorefining system has been shown to be advantageous. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Experimental studies on CHF in circular tubes and rod bundles are performed in the KRISTA test facility. The experiments cover a wide range of parameters of interest to LWRs, HCLWR and also Russian WWER rectors. CHF tests in circular tubes of three different inner diameters of 4 mm, 8 mm and 12 mm have been performed in order to study the influence of tube diameter on CHF. In contrast to previous work the influence of diameter on CHF has been found to be a complex function of pressure, exit quality, mass flux and the diameter itself. (orig./DG)

    John Twysden (1607-1688) and John Palmer (1612-1679) were two astronomers in the circle of Samuel Foster (circa 1600-1652), the subject of a recent paper in this journal. John Twysden qualified in law and medicine and led a peripatetic life around England and Europe. John Palmer was Rector of Ecton, Northamptonshire and later Archdeacon of Northampton. The two astronomers catalogued observations made from Northamptonshire from the 1640s to the 1670s. In their later years Twysden and Palmer published works on a variety of topics, often astronomical. Palmer engaged in correspondence with Henry Oldenburg, the first secretary of the Royal Society, on topics in astronomy and mathematics.

Apollonius indeed expells from his renewed epic a hero who is famous as a figure  attached to an archaic form of epic heroism, whereas in Theocritus Heracles, while being recognizably an archaic hero, is seen in a perspective that is not archaic, but totally transformed by the new perspective that focuses on the poet himself.Christophe Cusset e Benjamin Acosta-Hughes affrontano qui i vari trattamenti paralleli che due importanti autori, Teocrito e Apollonio Rodio, hanno dedicato nelle rispettive opere alla figura di Eracle, emblema dell’arcaismo che a seconda dei casi può essere reinventata, ridimensionata o eliminata, in base a scelte che

    Full Text Available Contextualisation This research note describes a proposed study which aims to examine the issue of how higher education in Rwanda might be funded. The amount the government spends on one student at university equals that of 150 students in a primary school. Research carried out in other countries suggests that loans are more effective, and equitable, as a form of financial aid. The implications of this, for the Rwandan context are discussed. Abstract: This research note describes the background to and plans for, a study to examine whether, in the context of higher education in Rwanda, the provision of loans, instead of grants/scholarships as a means of financial support to students in university, is likely to enhance equity and efficiency. It also aims to examine whether the current system is effective in meeting the manpower and employment needs of Rwanda. The participants of the proposed study include Rectors, Vice-Rectors, and student leaders in public and private universities: participant perceptions will be collected through questionnaires and interviews. Those interviewed will also include the Minister of Finance and Education. Quantitative methods will also be used to analyse the relative efficiency of loans compared to scholarships. It is hoped that the results of the study will indicate whether loans are a more efficient and equitable financing method compared to scholarships.

  14. 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.

    A two-step cluster analysis of 449 Southeastern climate stations is used to objectively determine general climate clusters (groups of climate stations) for eight southeastern states. The purpose is objectively to define regions of climatic homogeneity that should perform more robustly in subsequent climatic impact models. 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.

    Full Text Available This investigation compares two translations from English into Portuguese of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. The corpus comprises a translation/adaptation for young readers, translated by Claudia Ortiz (2005, and a translation for a general audience (i.e. experienced readers, published by Oscar Mendes (1981. We investigate textual aspects such as lexical choices, omissions, and explicitations in order to compare and contrast source and target texts. Guided by this analysis, we discuss the possibility of enlarging Poe’s readership. This discussion is grounded on the Scope Theory (Vermeer and Reiss, 2002 and the Interpretive Community Theory (Fish, 1990. The comparison of the translations indicates that the adaptation seems to respect the intended audience’s reading experiences and to be consistent with social practices, other than translation, which usually take children and youngsters as primary audience.

  3. Dislocation microstructures and strain-gradient plasticity with one active slip plane

    Science.gov (United States)

    Conti, Sergio; Garroni, Adriana; Müller, Stefan

    2016-08-01

    We study dislocation networks in the plane using the vectorial phase-field model introduced by Ortiz and coworkers, in the limit of small lattice spacing. We show that, in a scaling regime where the total length of the dislocations is large, the phase field model reduces to a simpler model of the strain-gradient type. The limiting model contains a term describing the three-dimensional elastic energy and a strain-gradient term describing the energy of the geometrically necessary dislocations, characterized by the tangential gradient of the slip. The energy density appearing in the strain-gradient term is determined by the solution of a cell problem, which depends on the line tension energy of dislocations. In the case of cubic crystals with isotropic elasticity our model shows that complex microstructures may form in which dislocations with different Burgers vector and orientation react with each other to reduce the total self-energy.

    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

      美国印第安文艺复兴时期,涌现出一批具有民族自豪感的作家与诗人,他们把写作当作政治解放的武器,在其诗歌创作中强调对同化的抵制,表达出认同祖先文化传统的愿望。作为这一时期诗人的代表人物,乔伊·哈娇(Joy Harjo)、西蒙·欧提斯(Simon Ortiz)以及琳达·荷根(Linda Hogan)将诗歌创作建立在印第安口述文化传统之上,强调土地是印第安的记忆和文化之根,并透过灵性传统彰显异于主流文学的叙述模式、神话体系和信仰体系。%American Indian Renaissance marks the first milestone in the development of American Indian literature written in English. With a strong sense of national pride, a new generation of Indian writers and poets in this period took up writing as a weapon of political liberation, proclaiming their dismissal of assimilation and articulating the desire to identify with their ancestral heritages. As part of them, Joy Harjo, Simon Ortiz and Linda Hogan infused their poem composition with traditional Indian culture such as affiliation with land, storytelling and vision so as to highlight Indian narrative discourse and mythology that are different from the dominant culture.

    The CPT project came to an end in December 2006 and its original scope is now shared among three new areas, namely Computing, Offline and Physics. 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.

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

    On 1993, the Spanish Government decided to perform a systematic hydrographic/oceanographic study of the so called "Spanish Exclusive Economic Zone" (ZEEE), that is, the marine area surrounding Spanish coast within the 200 nm limit. To achieve it, the oceanographic ship "Hespérides" would be at disposal of the Defense Ministry during one moth a year. A "ZEEE-Plan" was established on 1994 with the main objective to improve cartography of the ZEEE zone and acquire different geophysical parameters to characterize it. A "ZEEE-group" was conformed by personnel coming from the Hydrographic Institute of the Spanish Navy (IHM) and the Spanish Oceanographic Institute (IEO), the Institutions responsible of the campaigns, as well as San Fernando Naval Observatory (ROA), University Complutense of Madrid (UCM), and others. From 1995 to 1997 systematic marine campaigns were carried out at the Valencia Trough and Balearic Sea (Western Mediterranean), complemented by two additional campaigns, carried out on 1999 and 2000. As a result of those campaigns maps of Bathymetry, Geomagnetic Anomalies and Free Air/Bouguer Gravity Anomalies have been published, six maps of 1:200.000 scale and one additional map, of 1:500.000 scale, for the whole area (the maps are available at IEO: Juan.acosta@md.ieo.es, fax: +34 914135597, and IHM: fax: +34 956599396). In this work the above mentioned results will be presented, together with the main characteristics of the surveys.

    Full Text Available Objectives: to characterize the clinical and sociodemographic profiles of women with breast cancer treated at the Oncology Unit of the Federico Lleras Acosta Hospital in Ibagué, Colombia between 2005 and 2009, and to identify service times. Methodology: a retrospective descriptive study in which 308 records were selected. Variables were collected using an instrument developed by the authors. The statistical analysis was conducted using the SPSS software. Results: the predominant age group was 45 to 64 years old. Additionally, 57.8% of these women were married. Similarly, most of them were from urban areas. The average age of menarche was 13 years. Half of the participants had been pregnant at least 3 times, and most of them were in the postmenopausal stage of their lives. The most frequent histological type was the infiltrating ductal one, as well as stage IIIB. The predominant surgical choices were modified radical mastectomy, pre- and post-operative chemotherapy, and postoperative radiotherapy. As for service times, there were delays in the admission to the oncology unit and treatment initiation. Conclusion: there was a low rate of carcinoma in situ and a high proportion of stage IV carcinoma in comparison to other studies from developed countries. The high rates of abandonment in post treatment follow-up, the shortcomings in case monitoring, and the findings concerning service times suggest the need for institutional corrective measures in order to improve the quality of the healthcare service in breast cancer patients.

    Graphene, a single-atom layer of carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice, has been on the forefront of research since it's discovery in 2005 [1]. Although it has many applications, my research is specialized in the field of utilizing the graphene as a saturable absorber for mode-locking lasers. Currently, the most common method to mode-lock a laser is by using a Semi-conductor Saturable Absorber Mirror (SESAM). Graphene is a substitute for SESAMs with pulse generation as low as 260 fs [2]. However, graphene will begin to ``burn'' as the laser approaches the intensity it needs to mode-lock. We have experimented with various methods of protecting the graphene from burning so it can be used at higher intensity domains.[4pt] [1] A. K. Geim, K. S. Novoselov, ``The rise of graphene.''

    The temperature and field dependence of harmonics in voltage V{sub n}=V{sub n}{sup '}-iV{sub n}{sup ''} using the screening technique have been measured for YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7-{delta}} superconducting thin films. Using the Sun model we obtained the curves for the temperature-dependent critical current density J{sub c}(T). In addition, we applied the criterion proposed by Acosta et al. to compute J{sub c}(T). Also, we made used of the empirical law J{sub c{proportional_to}}(1-T/T{sub c}){sup n} as an input in our calculations to reproduce experimental harmonic generation up to the fifth harmonic. We found that most models fit well the fundamental voltage but higher harmonics are poorly reproduced. Such behavior suggests the idea that higher harmonics contain information concerning complex processes like flux creep or thermally assisted flux flow.

    A reactor designed to perform criticality experiments in support of the Space Nuclear Thermal Propulsion program is currently in operation at the Sandia National Laboratories' reactor facility. The reactor is a small, water-moderated system that uses highly enriched uranium particle fuel in a 19-element configuration. Its purpose is to obtain neutronic measurements under a variety of experimental conditions that are subsequently used to benchmark rector-design computer codes. Brookhaven National Laboratory, Babcock & Wilcox, and Sandia National Laboratories participated in determining the reactor's performance requirements, design, follow-on experimentation, and in obtaining the licensing approvals. Brookhaven National Laboratory is primarily responsible for the analytical support, Babcock & Wilcox the hardware design, and Sandia National Laboratories the operational safety. All of the team members participate in determining the experimentation requirements, performance, and data reduction. Initial criticality was achieved in October 1989. An overall description of the reactor is presented along with key design features and safety-related aspects.

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..).

    Yearly calendars were a mass-produced article in early modern times and had an enormous importance in everyday life. Besides a first part, the Calendarium with the monthly tables, they contain a second part, the astrological Prognosticum. At first, the two parts were sold separately. In the second half of the 17th century, the parts were designed as a unity and sold together. The calendars in quart format contain texts which are so interesting that historical research should give them more consideration. Such a text is found, e.g., in the second part of the calendar for 1611, written by Paul Nagel, astronomer and rector of the school in Torgau. Nagel informs about Galilei's discoveries with the telescope. The (Latin) text was written in August 1610. This text is presented and put into perspective in the scientific debates of the time about the telescope as a new invention with consequences to philosophy.

  6. Three-dimensional time-dependent star reactor kinetics analysis coupled with RETRAN and MCPWR system response

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The operation of a nuclear power plant must be continually supported by analyses which may include FSAR design basis and best-estimate thermal-hydraulic (T/H) and reactor dynamics analyses. The development and improvement of new analysis techniques provide many advantages including the capability to evaluate the impact of modeling assumptions made in previous rector kinetics and T/H calculations. The methodology presented in this paper shows how the time-dependent, three-dimensional reactor kinetics STAR nodal code can be directly coupled with the overall RCS T/H codes, RETRAN and MCPWR, in a tandem, iterative approach. This paper describes the results of using the RETRAN, MCPWR, and STAR codes in a tandem, predictive-corrective mode for three PWR transients: Loss of Feedwater Anticipated Transient Without Scram (ATWS); Station Blackout ATWS; and a Total Loss of Reactor Coolant System (RCS) Flow with a control rod scram

  11. Radiation exposure by ingestion of drinking water contaminated with radioactivity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It was the aim of this study to examine the relationship between concentrations of such mixtures of radioactive substances as may occur after a nuclear burst or rector accident resulting in the release of radioactive material and the radiation dose taken up with the drinking water, which was calculated with reference to the beginning and duration of ingestion as well as the ingested volumes of contaminated drinking water. Determined were the activities of all the radionuclides contained in 1 l drinking water, which together lead to a time-dependent effective uptake of 1 Sv at days 0, 1 and 7 as well as 1 month and 6 months after contamination of the drinking water.

    We demonstrate a spray pyrolysis method to grow carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with high degree of crystallinity, aspect ratio and degree of alignment on a variety of different substrates, such as conventional steel, carbon fibres (CF) and ceramics. The process consists in the chemical vapour deposition of both a thin SiO2 layer and CNTs that subsequently grow on this thin layer. After CNT growth, increases in specific surface by factors of 1000 and 30 for the steel and CF samples, respectively, are observed. CNTs growth on ceramic surfaces results in a surface resistance of 37.5 Ohm/sq. When using conventional steel as a rector tube, we observed CNTs growth rates of 0.6 g/min. Details of nanotube morphology and the growth mechanism are discussed. Since the method discussed here is highly versatile, it opens up a wide variety of applications in which specific substrates could be used in combination with CNTs.

  18. A neural network application to control a nuclear reactor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    There are a few examples in the literature of the use of neural networks as a controller for systems with highly nonlinear dynamics. Since a nuclear power reactor is a highly nonlinear system, the purpose of the project described in this paper is to create a neural network that can generate the control signals for a nonlinear reactor model. The data for training and recall in the neural network come from a simulation of the advanced neutron source reactor performed with the ACSL software package. The modified Pontryagin's maximum principle was used to generate the control equations, where control of the rector is achieved by the changes of reactivity due to control rod movement and the inlet temperature change. The reactor was required to follow two given demands: the reactor power demand and the coolant temperature demand

    The process of the discovery of the sixth new element and metal present in raw platinum ore granules, and called vestium or ruthenium, took place between 1807 and 1844. The element was first discovered by the Polish chemist and medical doctor, Jedrzej Sniadecki, professor at Vilnius University, presently Lithuania. It took almost 40 years to confirm the discovery by two German chemists working in Russia, Gottfried Osann and Carl Ernst Claus, who had at their disposition platinum ore recently discovered in the Ural Mountains. The discovery work of Jedrzej Sniadecki was supported by his older brother Jan Sniadecki, a noted mathematician and astronomer, who was also the Rector of Vilnius University at the time of the original discovery. Sniadecki brothers were educated in Poland (Poznań and Cracow) and abroad: Jedrzej in Pavia (Italy), Edinburgh (Scotland) and Vienna, and Jan in Göttingen, Leiden, Utrecht and prerevolutionary Paris.

    Adolf Hitler met or at least knew about 5 ophthalmologists. The chair of ophthalmology in Berlin, Walther Löhlein, personally examined Hitler's eyes at least two times. The chair of ophthalmology in Breslau, Walter Dieter, developed "air raid protection spectacles" with the aid of high representatives of the NS-system and probably Adolf Hitler himself. Heinrich Wilhelm Kranz became rector of the universities of Giessen and Frankfurt/Main. He was known as a very strict advocate of the NS-race hygiene. Werner Zabel made plans for Hitler's diet and tried to interfere with Hitler's medical treatment. Finally, Hellmuth Unger was an influential representative of the medical press and a famous writer. Three of his novels with medical topics were made into a film which Hitler probably saw. Hitler had, so to say, a small "ophthalmological proximity" which, however, did not play a significant role for himself or the NS-state.

    The master curve (MC) approach used to measure the transition temperature, T , was standarised in the ASTM Standard Test Method E 1921 in 1997. The basic MC approach for analysis of fracture test results is intended for macroscopically homogeneous steels with a body centred cubic (ferritic) structure only. In reality, due to the manufacturing process, the steels in question are seldom fully macroscopically homogeneous. The fracture toughness values measured on Charpy size SE(B) specimens of base metal from the Greifswald Unit 8 rector pressure vessel (RPV) show large scatter. The basic MC evaluation following ASTM E1921 supplies a MC with many fracture toughness values which lie below the 5% fracture probability line. It is therefore suspected that this material is macroscopically inhomogeneous. In this paper, two recent extensions of the MC for inhomogeneous materials are applied to these fracture toughness data.

    Carl Friedrich Richard Foerster (1825-1902) was a German who was born in the Polish city Leszno. He studied medicine at the Medical Faculty of Breslau (now Wroclaw, Poland) University, and later in Heidelberg and Berlin. From 1855, he worked in Breslau, where he established in 1857 the first ophthalmology clinic. Later, he became a professor in ophthalmology, the first director of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Breslau, and even the rector of this University. Forster did many pioneering works on visual fields, invented a photometer and the first perimeter, known for many years as the Foerster perimeter. Moreover, he studied night blindness, visual field changes due to different pathologies, and many eye diseases, including glaucoma, cataract, retinal and choroidal diseases.

    We demonstrate a spray pyrolysis method to grow carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with high degree of crystallinity, aspect ratio and degree of alignment on a variety of different substrates, such as conventional steel, carbon fibres (CF) and ceramics. The process consists in the chemical vapour deposition of both a thin SiO2 layer and CNTs that subsequently grow on this thin layer. After CNT growth, increases in specific surface by factors of 1000 and 30 for the steel and CF samples, respectively, are observed. CNTs growth on ceramic surfaces results in a surface resistance of 37.5 Ohm/sq. When using conventional steel as a rector tube, we observed CNTs growth rates of 0.6 g/min. Details of nanotube morphology and the growth mechanism are discussed. Since the method discussed here is highly versatile, it opens up a wide variety of applications in which specific substrates could be used in combination with CNTs. PMID:26353505

    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.

One French response to the German propaganda in Spain (and, by extension, other neutral countries consisted in the creation of the French Catholic Committee of Propaganda. This Committee was characterized by its employment of traditional Spanish Catholicism as a vehicle for nationalistic propaganda. The collaboration between some ecclesiastics and the French government in favour of France was the work of Alfred Baudrillart, rector of the Catholic Institute of Paris. Baudrillart made two propaganda trips to Spain, meeting with political, intellectual and ecclesiastical personalities, and initiating diverse propaganda initiatives.Durante la Primera Guerra Mundial España permaneció neutral.

    The existence of a relationship between regional seismicity and changes in volcanic activity has been the subject of several studies in the last years. Generally, activity in basaltic volcanoes such as Villarica (Chile) and Tungurahua (Ecuador) shows very little changes after the occurrence of regional earthquakes. In a few cases volcanic activity has changed before the occurrence of regional earthquakes, such as observed at Teide, Tenerife, in 2004 and 2005 (Tárraga et al., 2006). In this paper we explore the possible link between regional seismicity and changes in volcanic activity at Mt. Etna in 2006 and 2007. On 24 November, 2006 at 4:37:40 GMT an earthquake of magnitude 4.7 stroke the eastern coast of Sicily. The epicenter was localized 50 km SE of the south coast of the island, and at about 160 km from the summit craters of Mt. Etna. The SSEM (Spectral Seismic Energy Measurement) of the seismic signal at stations at 1 km and 6 km from the craters highlights that four hours before this earthquake the energy associated with volcanic tremor increased, reached a maximum, and finally became steady when the earthquake occurred. Conversely, neither before nor after the earthquake, the SSEM of stations located between 80 km and 120 km from the epicentre and outside the volcano edifice showed changes. On 5 September, 2007 at 21:24:13 GMT an earthquake of magnitude 3.2 and 7.9 km depth stroke the Lipari Island, at the north of Sicily. About 38 hours before the earthquake occurrence, there was an episode of lava fountain lasting 20 hours at Etna volcano. The SSEM of the seismic signal recorded during the lava fountain at a station located at 6 km from the craters highlights changes heralding this earthquake ten hours before its occurrence using the FFM method (e.g., Voight, 1988; Ortiz et al., 2003). A change in volcanic activity - with the onset of ash emission and Strombolian explosions - was observed a couple of hours before the occurrence of the regional

The context in whichsuchillnessarisesamong womenisdeterminedby different factors that constitute a process that generates delays in requesting medical attention and the onset of timely treatment. This descriptive study with a qualitative approach had as objective to identify factors that resulted in delaying request for medical attention among twelve women who had chest pains or symptoms of cardiac ischemic origin, who registered at the Federico Lleras Acosta Hospital and at the clinics Minerva y Medicádiz of the city of Ibagué during the months of August thru November of 2005. The information was gathered via semi structured interviews based on the topic guidelines of the symptom management process; such was then analyzed under the content analysis technique. Delay generating factors when requesting medical treatment by women who have ischemic coronary chest pains in terms of the phases to manage the symptoms are: valuation of the symptom: characteristics of the type of pain, experience with such pain, unprotected by loved ones, a sense of worry for others, disability, fears, underestimating the symptom, attributing the cause; measuring the response capacity: facing the symptom according to beliefs, and selecting the type of assistance: dependent on others and prior experiences with health providers. The factors found are sequential and interrelated. The study identified that factors such as being dependent on others, loved ones not caring and the feeling of not wanting to worry others were definitive in the delay process.La enfermedad coronaria constituye una de las principales causas de muerte en las mujeres mayores de 45 años.

  17. Sporadic impact flashes on the Moon and their implications

    Trigo-Rodriguez, J. M.; Ortiz, J. L.; Llorca, J.; Santos-Sanz, P.

    The systematic impact flash survey that we carried out between 2001 and 2004 resulted in the first unambiguous detection of lunar sporadic impact flashes (Ortiz et al., 2006) and already allowed us to estimate the impact rate of objects on Earth as a function of their incoming energy under the assumption of a certain range of luminous efficiencies of the impact processes. Some present unknown parameters can be constrained in the future by monitoring impact flashes associated with meteoroid streams exhibiting a wide range of impact angles and energies. Here we further investigate some implications of the sporadic impact flashes detected so far and in particular we focus on whether the SMART-1 impact flash can give additional constraints on the luminous efficiency applicable to sporadic impacts, in order to derive more accurate impact rates on Earth. We have compared our derived impact fluxes with those obtained by Ceplecha (2001) and Brown et al. (2002) and we conclude that the present flux in the observed energy range would be underestimated. Finally, we conclude that the large lunar surface coverage and increasing sensitivity of modern video cameras makes this a powerful method to estimate terrestrial impact rates of large bodies that are statistically difficult to be detected from more limited atmospheric coverages characteristic of terrestrial networks.

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

Aquest període ha tingut a Mèxic característiques singulars marcades, d'una banda, per l'acostament entre l'Estat nacional i el Vaticà i, de l'altra, per una sèrie d'escàndols de corrupció en què es va veure embolicada la pròpia institució. Vist el problema des costat social, a Mèxic s'ha pogut observar una creixent secularització de la societat, així com el desenvolupament de formes de religiositat particulars cada vegada més allunyades de l'ortodòxia religiosa. Les pel·lícules analitzades han estat produïdes entre 1998 i 2012 i s'han escollit aquestes en particular amb l'objectiu de mostrar algunes tendències contrastants: les denúncies de corrupció de la jerarquia eclesiàstica versus la presència dels sacerdots vinculats amb la Teologia de l'Alliberament i la defensa dels drets humans. La presència del fanatisme religiós que porta a la destrucció moral, espiritual i fins física versus formes diferents d'apropiació de la religiositat, que permeten un alliberament espiritual dels subjectes.

  20. N-deacetyl ketoconazole-induced hepatotoxicity in a primary culture system of rat hepatocytes.

    1997-02-28

    Ketoconazole (KT) is an azole antifungal agent that has been associated with hepatotoxicity. The mechanism of its hepatotoxicity has not yet been resolved. It has been suggested that a reactive metabolite may be the cause of toxicity because the hepatic injury does not appear to be mediated through an immunoallergic mechanism. Several metabolites of KT have been reported in the literature of which the deacetylated metabolite, N-deacetyl ketoconazole (DAK), is the major metabolite which undergoes further metabolism by the flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMO) to form a potentially toxic dialdehyde. The objective of this study was to evaluate DAK's cytotoxicity and the role of FMO in a primary culture system of rat hepatocytes. Cytotoxicity was evaluated by measuring the leakage of the cytosolic enzyme, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), into the medium and by assessing mitochondrial reduction of 3-(4,5-dimethythiazol-2yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT). The cultures were exposed to various concentrations of DAK (20-160 microM) for 0.5-4 h. There was a significant increase (P DAK at 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 h, respectively). The concentrations to observe 50% LDH leakage from the hepatocytes were 155, 133, 100, 70 microM DAK at 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 h, respectively. Moreover, co-treatment with methimazole, a competitive substrate for FMO, produced a significant decrease (P DAK. Also, the toxicity was significantly (P DAK is a more potent cytotoxicant than its parent compound, KT, as reported previously by our laboratory (Rodriguez and Acosta, Toxicology, 96: 83-92, 1995) and its toxicity was expressed in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Furthermore, DAK's cytotoxicity was enhanced with n-octylamine and suppressed with methimazole, suggesting a role for FMO in the toxicity of the metabolite.

  1. Exploring the link between environmental identity, behaviors and decision making

    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.

Spectral density analysis, autocorrelation functions and the standardized annual discharge data evaluated annual discharge frequency cycles. Results showed ARIMA models with two autoregressive and one moving average coefficient adequately project river discharge for all gauging stations with four of them showing significant declining patterns since 1860. ARIMA models in combination with autocorrelation and spectral density techniques as well as standardized departures, in agreement with present (2002-2010 observations, forecast a wet episode that may last between 9 and 12 years thereafter entering again into a dry episode. Three dry-wet spell cycles with different time scales (1-2 years; 4-7 years; 9-12 years could be discerned from these analyses that are consistent for all three northern Mexico’s river clusters that emerged from a multivariate

    Interpretation of hydraulic tests performed at a carbonate rock site for CO2 storage Berta Gómez, Sheila Fernández, Tobias Roetting, Lurdes Martínez, Silvia de Simone, Joaquim Soler, Jesus Carrera, Gema Ortiz, Christophe Huber, Carlos de Dios Proper design of CO2 geological storage facilities requires knowledge of the reservoir hydraulic parameters. Specifically, permeability controls the flux of CO2, the rate at which it dissolves, local and regional pressure buildup and the likelihood of induced seismicity. Permeability is obtained from hydraulic tests, which may yield local permeability, which controls injectivity, and large scale permeability, which controls pressure buildup at the large scale. If pressure response measurements are obtained at different elevations, hydraulic tests may also yield vertical permeability, which controls the rate at which CO2 dissolves. The objective of this work is to discuss the interpretation of hydraulic tests at deep reservoirs and the conditions under which these permeabilities can be obtained. To achieve this objective, we have built a radially symmetric model, including a skin and radial as well as vertical heterogeneity. We use this model to simulate hydraulic tests with increasing degrees of complexity about the medium response. We start by assuming Darcy flow, then add coupled mechanical effects (fractures opening) and, finally, we add thermal effects. We discuss how these affect the conventional interpretation of the tests and how to identify their presence. We apply these findings to the interpretation of hydraulic tests at Hontomin.

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.

    Recent discovery of rings around Chariklo, a centaur orbiting the Sun (F. Braga-Ribas et al., 2014) and speculations of rings around minor planet, Chiron (Ortiz et al., 2015), Saturn's satellites, Rhea (Jones et al., 2008; Schenk et al., 2011), Iapetus (Ip, 2006) or exoplanets, suggest that rings about non-spherical bodies is perhaps a more general phenomenon than anticipated. As a first step towards understanding such systems, we examine the dynamical behavior of rings around similar bodies using N-body simulations. Our code employs the `local simulation method' (Wisdom & Tremaine, 1988; Salo, 1995) and accounts for particle interactions via collisions using Discrete Element Method (Cundall & Strack, 1978; Bhateja et al., 2016) and mutual gravitation. The central body has been modeled as an axisymmetric ellipsoid characterized by its axis ratio, or defined via characteristic frequencies (circular, vertical and epicyclic frequency) representing the gravitational field of an axisymmetric body. We vary the central body's characterizing parameter and observe the change in various ring properties like the granular temperature, impact frequency, radial width and vertical thickness. We also look into the effect on ring properties upon variation in the size of the central body-ring system. Further, we investigate the role of characteristic frequencies in dictating the ring dynamics, and how this could help in qualitatively estimating the ring dynamics about any arbitrary central body with symmetry about the equatorial plane and the axis normal to it.

  12. A variational formulation for the incremental homogenization of elasto-plastic composites

    Brassart, L.; Stainier, L.; Doghri, I.; Delannay, L.

    2011-12-01

    This work addresses the micro-macro modeling of composites having elasto-plastic constituents. A new model is proposed to compute the effective stress-strain relation along arbitrary loading paths. The proposed model is based on an incremental variational principle (Ortiz, M., Stainier, L., 1999. The variational formulation of viscoplastic constitutive updates. Comput. Methods Appl. Mech. Eng. 171, 419-444) according to which the local stress-strain relation derives from a single incremental potential at each time step. The effective incremental potential of the composite is then estimated based on a linear comparison composite (LCC) with an effective behavior computed using available schemes in linear elasticity. Algorithmic elegance of the time-integration of J 2 elasto-plasticity is exploited in order to define the LCC. In particular, the elastic predictor strain is used explicitly. The method yields a homogenized yield criterion and radial return equation for each phase, as well as a homogenized plastic flow rule. The predictive capabilities of the proposed method are assessed against reference full-field finite element results for several particle-reinforced composites.

The physiopathology of obstructive nephropathy has long been viewed as a mere mechanical problem. However, recent advances in cell and systems biology have disclosed a complex physiopathology involving a high number of molecular mediators of injury that lead to cellular processes of apoptotic cell death, cell injury leading to inflammation and resultant fibrosis. Functional studies in animal models of ureteral obstruction using a variety of techniques that include genetically modified animals have disclosed an important role for the renin-angiotensin system, transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1 and other mediators of inflammation in this process. In addition, high throughput techniques such as proteomics and transcriptomics have identified potential biomarkers that may guide clinical decision-making.Keywords: urinary tract obstruction, renal injury, fluid mechanics, molecular cell biology

    The 3D inversion gravity anomaly to estimate topographical density using a matlab source code from gridded data provided by Parker Oldenburg algorithm based on fast Fourier transform was computed. We extend and improved the source code of 3DINVERT.M invented by Gomez Ortiz and Agarwal (2005) using the relationship between Fourier transform of the gravity anomaly and the sum of the Fourier transform from the topography density. We gave density contrast between the two media to apply the inversion. FFT routine was implemented to construct amplitude spectrum to the given mean depth. The results were presented as new graphics of inverted topography density, the gravity anomaly due to the inverted topography and the difference between the input gravity data and the computed ones. It terminates when the RMS error is lower than pre-assigned value used as convergence criterion or until maximum of iterations is reached. As an example, we used the matlab program on gravity data of Banten region, Indonesia.

    Multiscale Modeling of Shock-Induced Phase Transitions in Iron Emily Carter, Kyle Caspersen, Adrian Lew and Michael Ortiz We investigate the bcc to hcp phase transition in iron under both pressure and shear. We use DFT to map out the energy landscape of uniformly deformed iron, including its equation of state and its elastic moduli as a function of volume. >From these data we construct a nonlinear-elastic energy density which gives the energy density for arbitrary - not necessarily small - deformations. The energy density contains two wells corresponding to the bcc and hcp phases. We take this multi-well energy density as a basis for the investigation of the effect of shear on the phase diagram of iron. We allow for mixed states consisting alternating lamellae of bcc and hcp phases, and, for each macroscopic deformation, we determine the optimal microstructure of the mixed state by energy minimization using a sequential-lamination algorithm. We find that the superposition of shearing deformation on a volume change has the effect of inducing mixed states of varying spatial complexity, and of markedly lowering the critical transformation pressure. Indeed, we find that shear must be taken into consideration in order to obtain agreement with measured transformation pressures. Finally, we demonstrate how the microstructure model can be integrated into large-scale finite element calculations of shocked iron.

    Like in many other materials, the presence of topological defects in graphene has been demonstrated to modify its behavior, thus enhancing features aimed at several technological applications, more specifically, its electronic and transport properties. In particular, pristine defect-free graphene has been shown to be of limited use for semiconductor-based electronics, whereas the presence of individual or cluster defect rings along grain boundaries hinders electron transport and introduce a transport gap, unveiling the possibility of novel electronic device applications based on the structural engineering of graphene-based materials. In this work, we present an atomic bondwise force-constant model from the tight binding potential by Xu et al. (1992), that accounts for the electron-mechanical coupling effects in graphene. First we verify that this computational scheme is capable of accurately predicting the defect energies and core structures of dislocation dipoles based on the theory of discrete dislocations of Ariza and Ortiz (2005). In order to demonstrate our ability to characterize the effect of patterned distributions of structural defects on the electronic structure of graphene, we present the electronic band structures and density of states curves of several defective graphene sheets.

  20. Many-body calculations of low energy eigenstates in magnetic and periodic systems with self healing diffusion Monte Carlo: steps beyond the fixed-phase

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Reboredo, Fernando A [ORNL

    2012-01-01

    The self-healing diffusion Monte Carlo algorithm (SHDMC) [Reboredo, Hood and Kent, Phys. Rev. B {\\bf 79}, 195117 (2009), Reboredo, {\\it ibid.} {\\bf 80}, 125110 (2009)] is extended to study the ground and excited states of magnetic and periodic systems. A recursive optimization algorithm is derived from the time evolution of the mixed probability density. The mixed probability density is given by an ensemble of electronic configurations (walkers) with complex weight. This complex weigh allows the amplitude of the fix-node wave function to move away from the trial wave function phase. This novel approach is both a generalization of SHDMC and the fixed-phase approximation [Ortiz, Ceperley and Martin Phys Rev. Lett. {\\bf 71}, 2777 (1993)]. When used recursively it improves simultaneously the node and phase. The algorithm is demonstrated to converge to the nearly exact solutions of model systems with periodic boundary conditions or applied magnetic fields. The method is also applied to obtain low energy excitations with magnetic field or periodic boundary conditions. The potential applications of this new method to study periodic, magnetic, and complex Hamiltonians are discussed.

We performed a structural analysis of citation networks and text mining supported in controlled vocabularies. In the case of liposomes, our results identify subnetworks (invisible colleges associated with different therapeutic strategies: nanopharmacology, hyperthermia, and gene therapy. Only in the pharmacological strategy was an organized knowledge translation process identified, which, however, is monopolized by the liposomal doxorubicins. In the case of MNs, subnetworks are not differentiated by the type of therapeutic strategy, and the content of the documents is still basic research. Research on MNs is highly focused on developing a combination of molecular imaging and photothermal therapy.Keywords: nanotechnology, citation network analysis, basic research, clinics, health care

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este trabajo es explorar las características del populismo a partir de la experiencia de Ecuador, uno de los países de América Latina que ha tenido más procesos de este tipo. La idea es identificar semejanzas en el modo en que se ejerce el estilo de liderazgo populista a partir de cuatro casos: José María Velasco Ibarra, Abdalá Bucaram Ortiz, Álvaro Noboa Pontón y Rafael Correa, a pesar de las diferencias existentes entre esos líderes políticos. El argumento es que, a diferencia de las aproximaciones prevalecientes en la literatura ecuatoriana, el populismo debe entenderse como un estilo de liderazgo que se da entre líder-seguidor, el cual tiene una serie de características específicas que se mantienen en el tiempo, más allá de las diferencias contextuales y sistémicas.

    Full Text Available An original and sensitive filmmaker, Gustavo Fontán goes beyond classic transpositions to venture into a poet’s obsessions, aesthetic and atmospheres. He has done so with the work of Jacobo Fijman, Juan L. Ortiz and Jorge Calvetti – to name just a few. In this paper I intend to explore El paisaje invisible, a short film by Fontán that brings us closer to Calvetti. I will focus on the director’s strategies – characteristic of the cinematographic language - that convey the poet’s mythical world and aesthetic, and I will analyze the union of both artists’ poetics. Finally, I would like to offer a brief explanation of the title of this article, which is drawn from a reflection by Calvetti: “All inspiration is born with its own form or forms. The same subject can be written as a narrative or in verse. Why not? They are different renditions of faithfulness.” I believe cinema is another rendition.

Qual era o seu propósito num mundo onde a academia real, herbalistas, curandeiros/as, exorcistas e charlatães competiam pela atenção da população? O artigo apresenta os diferentes grupos que atuaram, ou pretendiam atuar, em prol da saúde na Inglaterra do século 18, e compara o conteúdo do guia Primitive Physic[k] com suas propostas e estratégias terapêuticas. Conclua-se que uma parte significativa do guia é composta por orientações da academia real de medicina, mas que sempre se favorecem remédios caseiros, com ingredientes acessíveis para as classes mais humildes. Quanto à chamada Spiritual Physick, menciona-se a oração como medida complementar, mas ignora-se plenamente a prática do exorcismo.

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.

    Editors: M.S.Tagirov, V.V.Semashko, A.S.Nizamutdinov Kazan is the motherland of Electronic Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) which was discovered in Kazan State University in 1944 by prof. E.K.Zavojskii. Since the Young Scientist School of Magnetic Resonance run by professor G.V.Skrotskii from MIPT stopped its work, Kazan took up the activity under the initiative of academician A.S.Borovik-Romanov. Nowadays this school is rejuvenated and the International Youth Scientific School studying "Actual problems of the magnetic resonance and its application" is developing. Traditionally the main subjects of the School meetings are: Magnetic Resonance in Solids, Chemistry, Geology, Biology and Medicine. The unchallenged organizers of that school are Kazan Federal University and Kazan E. K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute. The rector of the School is professor Murat Tagirov, vice-rector - professor Valentine Zhikharev. Since 1997 more than 100 famous scientists from Germany, France, Switzerland, USA, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, Moldavia, Georgia provided plenary lecture presentations. Almost 700 young scientists have had an opportunity to participate in discussions of the latest scientific developments, to make their oral reports and to improve their knowledge and skills. To enhance competition among the young scientists, reports take place every year and the Program Committee members name the best reports, the authors of which are invited to prepare full-scale scientific papers. Since 2013 the International Youth Scientific School "Actual problems of the magnetic resonance and its application", following the tendency for comprehensive studies of matter properties and its interaction with electromagnetic fields, expanded "the field of interest" and opened the new section: Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy. Many young people have submitted interesting reports on photonics, quantum electronics, laser physics, quantum optics, traditional optical and laser spectroscopy, non

Niños y adolescentes de nuestra tierra pueden llegar a conocer literariamente a tan insigne escritor por medio de poemas y textos en prosa llamados a sellar con letras de oro la muy peculiar relación de Unamuno con los rincones y callejas de la ciudad, con las llanuras y cimas de su Castilla o con las verduras del Tormes. El autor de Niebla es también el hombre volcado en el paisaje que lo mece, el paisano que se lanza en busca de las gentes sencillas del campo procurando, al menos, su consuelo. Si la misión de despertar al dormido, ligada a obras mayores, queda especialmente reservada a los adultos, otros textos de don Miguel nos permiten llegar hasta los más jóvenes con versos y párrafos que hablan y cantan a los múltiples protagonistas de la intrahistoria.

    Kazan Federal University has held the annual International Youth School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" since 1997. The choice of the topic is not accidental. Kazan is the home of photon echo which was predicted at Kazan Physical-Technical Institute in 1963 by Prof. U.G. Kopvil'em and V.R. Nagibarov and observed in Columbia University by N.A. Kurnit, I.D. Abella, and S.R. Hartmann in 1964. Since then, photon echo has become a powerful tool of coherent optical spectroscopy and optical information processing, which have been developed here in Kazan in close collaboration between Kazan Physical-Technical Institute and Kazan Federal University. The main subjects of the XVIII International Youth School are: Nonlinear and coherent optics; Atomic and molecular spectroscopy; Coherent laser spectroscopy; Problems of quantum optics; Quantum theory of radiation; and Nanophotonics and Scanning Probe Microscopy. The unchallenged organizers of that school are Kazan Federal University and Kazan E.K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute. The rector of the School is Professor Myakzyum Salakhov, and the vice-rector is Professor Vitaly Samartsev. The International Youth Scientific School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" follows the global pattern of comprehensive studies of matter properties and their interaction with electromagnetic fields. Since 1997 more than 100 famous scientists from the USA, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia have given plenary lecture presentations. Here over 1000 young scientists had an opportunity to participate in lively discussions about the latest scientific news. Many young people have submitted interesting reports on photonics, quantum electronics, laser physics, quantum optics, traditional optical and laser spectroscopy, non-linear optics, material science and nanotechnology.

    Carlson, Kristin M.

    Given the geographic, demographic, and historical importance of Cuba vis-a-vis the dissemination of language and culture throughout the Hispanic Caribbean, one would naturally anticipate a larger corpus of scientifically-noteworthy linguistic publications on Cuban Spanish, which is far from the actual case. Moreover, the gemination of an onset positionally subsequent to the deletion of a syllable-final liquid (generally termed liquid gemination in the literature) has been repeatedly claimed yet remarkably unsubstantiated as a pervasive characteristic of Cuban Spanish, particularly of the western dialect region (cf. Alfaraz (2000, 2007, 2008), Casanellas and Alamo (1985), Choy Lopez (1985, 1988, 1989), Costa Sanchez (1987), Darias Concepcion (2001, 2005), Dohotaru (2002, 2007), Figueroa Esteva and Dohotaru (1994), Garcia Perez (2006), Garcia Riveron (1991), Haden and Matluck (1973, 1974, 1977), Isbǎsescu (1965, 1968), Lamb (1968), Levina (1970), Montero Bernal (1990, 2002, 2007a, b), Ringer Uber (1986), Ruiz Hernandez (1978), Sosa (1974), Terrell (1976), Trista and Valdes (1978), Valdes Acosta (1980), and Vera Riveron (2000)). As a result, in the interest of supplementing all antecedent work concerning the allophony of final liquids as well as affording a more descriptively-precise account of the allophony of word-internal, post-nuclear /l/ and /[Special character omitted]/ in Cuban Spanish in addition to expressly addressing the need for empirical data-collection and analysis processes, the present investigation was specifically designed and implemented to acoustically investigate the phenomenon of gemination as it is purported to occur in the Spanish of the region of Havana, Cuba: more specifically, (1) to acoustically examine the qualitative and quantitative patternings of post-nuclear /l/ and /[Special character omitted]/ within the word; and (2) to statistically evaluate the relationship between gemination and eight independent variables: gender, age group

El contexto en el que se desarrolla esta enfermedad en la mujer está determinado por diferentes factores que conforman un proceso que genera demora en la solicitud de atención y en la instauración de tratamientos oportunos. El presente estudio de tipo descriptivo con abordaje cualitativo tuvo como objetivo identificar los factores que determinan la demora en la solicitud de atención en salud en doce mujeres que presentaron dolor torácico o síntomas de origen isquémico cardiaco, que ingresaron en el Hospital Federico Lleras Acosta y en las clínicas Minerva y Medicádiz en la ciudad de Ibagué durante los meses agosto a noviembre de 2005. La información se obtuvo mediante la realización de una entrevista semies-tructurada basada en una guía temática a partir del proceso de manejo del síntoma; ésta fue analizada bajo la técnica análisis de contenido. Los factores que intervienen en la demora en la solicitud de atención en salud de las mujeres con dolor torácico isquémico coronario en términos de las fases del manejo del síntoma son: valoración del síntoma: características del dolor, experiencia con el dolor, desprotección de seres queridos, sentido de preocupación por otros, incapacidad, miedos, subestimación del síntoma, atribución de la causa; medición de la capacidad de respuesta: afrontamiento del síntoma según las creencias, y selección del tipo de ayuda: dependencia de terceros y experiencias previas con los proveedores de salud. Los factores encontrados son secuenciales y se relacionan entre sí. El estudió identificó que factores como la dependencia de terceros, la desprotección de seres queridos y el sentido de no preocupar a otros son determinantes dentro del proceso.

    Full Text Available Introducción: La tasa global de fecundidad en Colombia ha disminuido y el uso de los métodos anticonceptivos (MAC ha aumentado; sin embargo el inicio temprano de las relaciones sexuales cuando aún no se tienen los conocimientos necesarios que faciliten la sexualidad segura, induce al uso ineficaz con pérdida del potencial anticonceptivo. Materiales y Métodos: Estudio descriptivo de corte trasversal realizado con 64 adolescentes de un barrio de la ciudad de Santa Marta, Colombia, utilizando para ello un instrumento compuesto por tres dominios relacionados con conocimientos,  creencias y prácticas  sobre MAC.  Resultados: La edad media de los adolescentes fue de 16 años. El 65,6% conoce los MAC aunque únicamente 54,7% dice usarlos. El 71,9% piensan que las personas que usan los MAC son responsables e informadas. El 48,8% piensan que usar anticonceptivos tiene unos efectos secundarios como gordura y esterilidad. El método preferido es el preservativo y la decisión de utilizarlo la toma el hombre, y el inicio de las relaciones sexuales ocurre hoy a una edad muy temprana, hecho atribuido a la influencia cultural. Discusión: Los resultados de este estudio guardan relación con investigaciones realizados a nivel nacional e internacional, demuestran que el desconocimiento y las actitudes negativas sobre anticonceptivos son obstáculo para su uso. Conclusiones: Todos los participantes sustentaron conocimientos en anticonceptivos, existiendo vacíos en ese conocimiento y/o creencias sobre efectos secundarios que inciden negativamente en su uso: se les atribuye ocasionar aumento de peso esterilidad. El método más utilizado por los adolescentes es el preservativo. Cómo citar este artículo: Lapeira P, Acosta D, Vásquez M.

Luego de dialogar con los vecinos que actuaban como promotores de salud, se encontró que una forma en que la comunidad participaría gustosamente era en la elaboración de un recetario. Más de 100 personas compartieron recetas que vincularon con valores y tradiciones propios de la zona. Luego de calcular su valor nutritivo, se las clasificó según el mayor aporte de nutrientes necesarios para el crecimiento y desarrollo infantil. También, con el fin de conocer la factibilidad de su reproducción, se evaluaron sus características organolépticas en el Laboratorio de Alimentos de la Escuela de Nutrición de la Universidad de Costa Rica. Finalmente, se definió la estructura didáctica de los mensajes nutricionales y se solicitó su opinión a miembros de la comunidad. Con base en esta retroalimentación, se hicieron las modificaciones pertinentes y se logró diseñar y difundir entre los vecinos, escuelas e instituciones del lugar, un recetario tipo almanaque con preparaciones típicas adecuadas para niños y niñas preescolares de la región.

  17. Breeding of bitter potato (Solanum juzepczukii) through mutation induction and tissue culture techniques

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Potato and other Andean tubers are the most important cultures in Bolivia. Bitter potatoes are cultivated in high areas (4000 m above sea level) and are among the few species that tolerate abiotic factors including freeze. However, the high content of glycoalkaloids is a great inconvenient for their use as food, and using nuclear techniques is an alternative to lower the total glycoalkaloid contents, especially for solanine and solasodine. Thus, tubers of bitter potatoes and cultivated potato were collected in the main centres of genetic diversity in Humanata, Puerto Acosta, Escoma, Ambana, Moco Moco and Italaque. In La Paz, they were submitted to thermotherapy and meristem culture to eradicate viruses eventually present. Thereafter, media were optimised for micropropagation to dispose of enough plantlets to carry out dosimetry studies. Optimum doses were 22 Gy for Bola luk'y and 28 Gy for Luk'y Kheto. Large-scale multiplication was undertaken from M1V1 to M1V4 in order to eliminate chimeras, and 2000 plantlets were weaned for each variety. Mutant genotypes were identified according to phenotypic changes using a descriptor, and by changes in the level of ploidy. Due to the scarce supply of tubers, they were multiplied in the field. Once this was done, methodologies were developed for the biochemical analyses of the total glycoalkaloid content (TGA). Correlating these variables we identified one Bola luk'y mutant (clone 107) with ploidy changes and 30 mg TGA/100 g fresh tuber, and another one (clone 1564) with less than 50 mg TGA/100 g fresh tuber. In addition, for the variety Luk'y Kheto 12 mutant clones were identified. Among them, clones 379 and 399 presented ploidy changes and the most favourable TGA content ranging between 40 and 49 g TGA/100 g fresh tuber, respectively. The other mutant clones, i.e. 568,592, 768, 805, 929, 959, 978, 1005 and 1036 also presented morphological changes but these were coupled with a higher TGA content. This material should now be

Nanoparticles with antifungal effects are of great interest in the formulation of microbicidal materials. Fungi are found as innocuous commensals and colonize various habitats in and on humans, especially the skin and mucosa. As growth on surfaces is a natural part of the Candida spp. lifestyle, one can expect that Candida organisms colonize prosthetic devices, such as dentures. Macromolecular systems, due to their properties, allow efficient use of these materials in various fields, including the creation of reinforced nanoparticle polymers with antimicrobial activity. This review briefly summarizes the results of studies conducted during the past decade and especially in the last few years focused on the toxicity of different antimicrobial polymers and factors influencing their activities, as well as the main applications of antimicrobial polymers in dentistry. The present study addresses aspects that are often overlooked in nanotoxicology studies, such as careful time-dependent characterization of agglomeration

    Matey Mateev and his wife Rumiana died in a car accident on 25 July. Mateev, who was born in 1940, was a major figure in Bulgarian physics and had very close ties with CERN. The Mateevs had two children –Dragomir and Iliana- and a granddaughter, born three days before they died.   The academic activities of Mateev -Mag, to his many friends- were centred around the St. Clement of Ohrid University of Sofia, from which he graduated in 1963, to become professor in 1984 and subsequently Head of Theoretical Physics, Dean of Physics and Vice-Rector. From 1980 onwards, without interruption, Mag led one of the University's most well-attended courses and was the students' favourite teacher. Mateev and the late Alexander (Sande) Donkov -another central figure at the University- wrote a book together on quantum mechanics, like so many physicists eventually do. Mag’s research ventured into high-temperature superconductivity, the growth of crystals in a micro-gravity environment and the ...

  1. Estimation of fracture toughness of cast stainless steels during thermal aging in LWR systems

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A procedure and correlations are presented for predicting the change in fracture toughness of cast stainless steel components due to thermal aging during service in light water rectors (LWRs) at 280--330 degrees C (535--625 degrees F). The fracture toughness J-R curve and Charpy-impact energy of aged cast stainless steels are estimated from known mineral in formation. Fracture toughness of a specific cast stainless steel is estimated from the extent and kinetics of thermal embrittlement. The extent of thermal embrittlement is characterized by the room-temperature ''normalized'' Charpy-impact energy. A correlation for the extent of embrittlement at ''saturation,'' i.e., the minimum impact energy that would be achieved for the material after long-term aging, is given in terms of a material parameter, Φ, which is determined from the chemical composition. The fracture toughness J-R curve for the material is then obtained from correlations between room-temperature Charpy-impact energy and fracture toughness parameters. Fracture toughness as a function of time and temperature of reactor service is estimated from the kinetics of thermal embrittlement, which is determined from chemical composition. A common ''lower-bound'' J-R curve for cast stainless steels with unknown chemical composition is also defined for a given material specification, ferrite content, and temperature. Examples for estimating impact strength and fracture toughness of cast stainless steel components during reactor service are describes. 24 refs., 39 figs., 2 tabs

Durante la Edad Moderna se transformaron aquellas universidades hacia estructuras más jerárquicas y se fundaron otros muchos estudios generales en las ciudades de Europa y América. Su objetivo es mostrar que, con sus distintas variantes, el análisis de los distintos modelos permite comparar, resumir y ordenar las estructuras jurídicas que organizan la vida universitaria, dando cuenta del funcionamiento y articulación de los diversos poderes: rectores, maestros, estudiantes y, por encima de ellos, los reyes y príncipes, los papas y los obispos, ayuntamientos. Es claro también que los modelos y sus modificaciones dotan de sentido a las universidades al situarlas en su marco histórico, desde la aparición de las ciudades en baja edad media hasta la formación de las monarquías modernas, sus luchas durante la reforma y la contrarreforma. En fin, el trabajo muestra cómo los modelos son herramientas para ordenar, entender y definir la variada y compleja vida de las universidades, y para poder compararlas.

    Research at Institutt for energiteknikk (IFE) comprises both nuclear and non-nuclear activities. The main nuclear program is centered on the OECD Halden Reactor Project. 19 participating countries and about 100 organisations is involved in the project. The Project is operated by a staff of 280 persons. In the autumn of 1996 the participating organizations reached agreement to continue their research collaboration for a further 3-year period (1997 to 1999). An extensive experimental program was carried out in 1996 using the Halden reactor (HBWR), partly for the joint international program, and partly for contract work for member countries. The main aim of this work is to improve the safety and reliability of existing nuclear power plants. The experimental equipment in the Halden reactor makes it ideal for simulating various operating conditions in different types of rectors. Processes such as corrosion in fuel cladding materials and fracture propagation in irradiated materials under the influence of additives in the coolant water can be studied. In an on-going study, fuel of Russian origin is being compared with modern western fuel. The results, being the first of their kind that are openly available, form an important bases for safety assessments of Russian VVER reactors. The man-machine laboratory is used to study how new technologies influence the operator and to develop computer based systems for improving the safety and accessibility of complex processes

    An experiment was performed in the Experimental Breeder Rector-II (EBR-II) in the 1990s to show that metallic fast reactor fuel could be used in reactors with a single, once-through core. To prove the long duration, high burnup, high neutron exposure capability an experiment where the fuel pin was designed with a very large fission gas plenum and very low fuel smeared density (SD). The experiment, X496, operated to only 8.3 at.% burnup because the EBR-II reactor was scheduled for shut-down at that time. Many of the examinations of the fuel pins only funded recently with the resurgence of reactor designs using very high-burnup fuel. The results showed that, despite the low smeared density of 59% the fuel swelled radially to contact the cladding, fission gas release appeared to be slightly higher than demonstrated in conventional 75%SD fuel tests and axial growth was about the same as 75% SD fuel. There were axial positions in some of the fuel pins which showed evidence of fuel restructuring and an absence of fission products with low melting points and gaseous precursors (Cs and Rb). A model to investigate whether these areas may have overheated due to a loss of bond sodium indicates that it is a possible explanation for the fuel restructuring and something to be considered for fuel performance modeling of low SD fuel.

His career was impressive. In 1826, without any formal university education, he began at the Leiden Astronomical Observatory as an ordinary observer. Through his work in astronomy he obtained an honorary doctorate, which enabled him in 1838 to become director of the observatory. In 1844 he was appointed full professor and in the academic year 1857/1858 he even became Rector Magnificus of Leiden University. In 1860 he even saw the fulfillmentof his life-long dream: the opening of a brand new astronomical observatory. However, in spite of these obvious professional successes, Kaiser's personal life was full of melancholy. This paper investigates Kaiser's personality, using correspondence with his family, as well as testimonies written down by his students and other contemporaries. Among others, we demonstrate the way in which Kaiser used his personal network, as well as his fierce continuous – and often publicly expressed – complaining, as a successful strategy in establishing his new astronomical observatory.

    The three-jet direct-flow plasma reactor with a channel diameter of 0.054 m was studied in terms of service life, thermal, technical, and functional capabilities. It was established that the near-optimal combination of thermal efficiency, required specific enthalpy of the plasma-forming gas and its mass flow rate is achieved at a reactor power of 150 kW. The bulk temperature of plasma flow over the rector of 12 gauges long varies within 5500÷3200 K and the wall temperature within 1900÷850 K, when a cylinder from zirconium dioxide of 0.005 m thick is used to thermally insulate the reactor. The specific electric power reaches a high of 1214 MW/m3. The rated service life of electrodes is 4700 hours for a copper anode and 111 hours for a tungsten cathode. The projected contamination of carbides and borides with elec-trode-erosion products doesn't exceed 0.0001% of copper and 0.00002% of tungsten.

    Photocatalytic water splitting with solar light is one of the most promising technologies for solar hydrogen production. From a systematic point of view, whether it is photocatalyst and reaction system development or the reactor-related design, the essentials could be summarized as: photon transfer limitations and mass transfer limitations (in the case of liquid phase reactions). Optimization of these two issues are therefore given special attention throughout our study. In this review, the state of the art for the research of photocatalytic hydrogen production, both outcomes and challenges in this field, were briefly reviewed. Research progress of our lab, from fundamental study of photocatalyst preparation to reactor configuration and pilot level demonstration, were introduced, showing the complete process of our effort for this technology to be economic viable in the near future. Our systematic and continuous study in this field lead to the development of a Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) based photocatalytic hydrogen production solar rector for the first time. We have demonstrated the feasibility for efficient photocatalytic hydrogen production under direct solar light. The exiting challenges and difficulties for this technology to proceed from successful laboratory photocatalysis set-up up to an industrially relevant scale are also proposed. These issues have been the object of our research and would also be the direction of our study in future. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In May 1998, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Rector Safety (BMU) presented the 1997 survey of 'Notifiable events in plants for nuclear fuel fission - nuclear power and research reactors whose maximum power exceeds 50 kW of continuous thermal power - in the Federal Republic of Germany'. Since 1975, the operators of nuclear power plants in the Federal Republic of Germany have been required to report to the nuclear supervisory authorities all notifiable events in accordance with standard national reporting criteria. This official reporting system serves for monitoring the safety status of notifiable plants and use the findings derived from the events reported to improve the safety status of plants within the supervisory procedures where necessary. The reports constitute an important base for the early detection of defects and for preventing the occurrence of similar defects in other plants. In 1997, there were 117 notifiable events in nuclear power plants in the Federal Republic of Germany. None of these events is to be classified as an accident, and in none of the events were dose limits under the German Radiation Protection Ordinance exceeded. (orig.)

  1. Cost assessment of a generic magnetic fusion reactor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A generic reactor model is used to examine the economic viability of generating electricity by magnetic fusion. The simple model uses components that are representative of those used in previous reactor studies of deuterium-tritium-burning tokamaks, stellarators, bumpy tori, reversed-field pinches (RFPs), and tandem mirrors. Conservative costing assumptions are made. The generic reactor is not a tokamak; rather, it is intended to emphasize what is common to all magnetic fusion rectors. The reactor uses a superconducting toroidal coil set to produce the dominant magnetic field. To this extent, it is not as good an approximation to systems such as the RFP in which the main field is produced by a plasma current. The main output of the study is the cost of electricity as a function of the weight and size of the fusion core - blanket, shield, structure, and coils. The model shows that a 1200-MW(e) power plant with a fusion core weight of about 10,000 tonnes should be competitive in the future with fission and fossil plants. Studies of the sensitivity of the model to variations in the assumptions show that this result is not sensitively dependent on any given assumption. Of particular importance is the result that a fusion reactor of this scale may be realized with only moderate advances in physics and technology capabilities

  7. Preliminary ALARA design concept for SMART

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    SMART(System-integrated Modular Advanced ReacTor) is a space saving integral type nuclear rector with the thermal power of 330 MW. This report provides general design guide and authority in NSSS designs for SMART needed to maintain the occupational doses and doses to members of public ALARA to meet the regulatory requirements. Paragraph 20.1 of 10 CFR 20, ''Standards for Protection Against Radiation'', states that licensee should make every reasonable effort to maintain exposures to radiation as far below the limits specified in Part 20 as is reasonably achievable. The ALARA (as low as is reasonably achievable) principle is incorporated into Korean radiation protection law as paragraph one Article 97 of the Atomic Energy Act. (Jan. 1995). This ALARA Design Concept for SMART provides 1) description of the organization and responsibilities needed for upper level management support and authority in order for the implementation of ALARA, 2) guidance and procedures for design, review, and evaluation needed for SMART ALARA program implementation, 3) general design guidelines for SMART NSSS and BOP designers to implement ALARA principles in design stage, and 4) training and instruction requirement of SMART NSSS and BOP designers for the familiarization of ALARA principles to be implemented in NSSS designs.

Albert Hofmann arrived at CERN from the Cambridge Electron Accelerator (CEA) near Boston, USA, in 1973 - already with an excellent reputation as accelerato...

  9. Bullet scintigraphy: can gamma camera be used for depleted uranium accident measurements?

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of this study was to see could gamma cameras be used for measurement of internal contamination with depleted uranium. Radioactive waste depleted uranium, which is by-product from the production of enriched fuel for nuclear rectors and weapons now, is used for manufacture bullets, which are used in Iraq, Republic of Srpska and Yugoslavia. In this paper is measured minimum detectable activity (MDA) of gamma cameras for depleted uranium, iodine and technetium. For detection of the depleted uranium are used low energy X-rays, energy of 100 keV with 20% windows width. About 40% of gamma emissions of the depleted uranium are in these limits. Measured MDA activities 50-100 Bq for depleted uranium, iodine and technetium are about ten times more than same for WBC (5 Bq). Gamma cameras can be used for relatively measurement of depleted uranium activity, what can be used for absorbed dose estimation. Detection of low level internal contamination with depleted uranium can be done with gamma cameras. (author)

Se efectuó análisis de documentos rectores. Se encontró que, los conceptos éticos están prácticamente ausentes de la normativa universitaria dirigida al componente estudiantil y cuando aparecen son etéreos. Adicionalmente, los alumnos no consideran la ética como valiosa, ni para ellos, sus profesores, personal de apoyo o autoridades. Se concluye que los estudiantes manejan una ética utilitaria, donde el fin justifica los medios. Esta percepción se refuerza por un medio universitario con valores pragmáticos que jerarquiza los resultados por encima de los medios utilizados para alcanzarlos, no promoviendo el desarrollo de individuos responsables, ni concientizados de su papel en la sociedad; características estas indispensables para la evolución hacia una sociedad más justa y equitativa, es decir un desarrollo sustentable.

  13. The use of CFD code for numerical simulation study on the air/water countercurrent flow limitation in nuclear reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For the experimental study on the air/water countercurrent flow limitation in Nuclear Reactors, were built at CDTN an acrylic test sections with the same geometric shape of 'hot leg' of a Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR). The hydraulic circuit is designed to be used with air and water at pressures near to atmospheric and ambient temperature. Due to the complexity of the CCFL experimental, the numerical simulation has been used. The aim of the numerical simulations is the validation of experimental data. It is a global trend, the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling and prediction of physical phenomena related to heat transfer in nuclear reactors. The most used CFD codes are: FLUENT®, STAR- CD®, Open Foam® and CFX®. In CFD, closure models are required that must be validated, especially if they are to be applied to nuclear reactor safety. The Thermal- Hydraulics Laboratory of CDTN offers computing infrastructure and license to use commercial code CFX®. This article describes a review about CCFL and the use of CFD for numerical simulation of this phenomenal for Nuclear Rector. (author)

    The aim of the present research is performing an informal analysis for internal audit involving the application of complex information system based on fuzzy logic. The same has been applied in internal audit involving the integration of the accounting field into the information systems field. The technological advancements can provide improvements to the work performed by the internal audit. Thus we aim to find, in the complex information systems, priorities for the work of internal audit of a high importance Private Institution of Higher Education. The applied method is quali-quantitative, as from the definition of strategic linguistic variables it was possible to transform them into quantitative with the matrix intersection. By means of a case study, where data were collected via interview with the Administrative Pro-Rector, who takes part at the elaboration of the strategic planning of the institution, it was possible to infer analysis concerning points which must be prioritized at the internal audit work. We emphasize that the priorities were identified when processed in a system (of academic use). From the study we can conclude that, starting from these information systems, audit can identify priorities on its work program. Along with plans and strategic objectives of the enterprise, the internal auditor can define operational procedures to work in favor of the attainment of the objectives of the organization.

  15. Fluid-Structure Interaction Effects Modeling for the Modal Analysis of a Steam Generator Tube Bundle

    Seismic analysis of steam generator is of paramount importance in the safety assessment of nuclear installations. These analyses require, in particular, the calculation of frequency, mode shape, and effective modal mass of the system Eigenmodes. As fluid-structure interaction effects can significantly affect the dynamic behavior of immersed structures, the numerical modeling of the steam generator has to take into account FSI. A complete modeling of heat exchangers (including pressure vessel, tubes, and fluid) is not accessible to the engineer for industrial design studies. In the past decades, homogenization methods have been studied and developed in order to model tubes and fluid through an equivalent continuous media, thus avoiding the tedious task to mesh all structure and fluid sub-domains within the tube bundle. Few of these methods have nonetheless been implemented in industrial finite element codes. In a previous paper (Sigrist, 2007, 'Fluid-Structure Interaction Effects Modeling for the Modal Analysis of a Nuclear Pressure Vessel', J. Pressure Vessel Technol., 123, p. 1-6), a homogenization method has been applied to an industrial case for the modal analysis of a nuclear rector with internal structures and coupling effects modeling. The present paper aims at investigating the extension of the proposed method for the dynamic analysis of tube bundles with fluid-structure interaction modeling. The homogenization method is compared with the classical coupled method in terms of eigenfrequencies, Eigenmodes, and effective modal masses. (authors)

    The work of the institute is directed to the assessment and enhancement of the safety of technical plants and to the increase of the efficiency and environmental sustainability of those facilities. Subjects of investigation are equally nuclear plants and installations of process industries. To achieve the goals mentioned, the institute is mainly engaged in the scientific fields of thermal fluid dynamics including magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) and materials sciences. In 2003, the ISR worked on the following main scientific projects. Sub-programme: Plant and Rector Safety. Project: accident analysis of nuclear reactors, safety of materials and components, particle and radiation transport, safety and efficiency of chemical processes. Sub-programme: Thermal Fluid Dynamics. Project: magneto-hydrodynamics, thermal fluid dynamics of multiphase systems. Considerable progress could also be achieved in the CFD simulation of two-phase flows. New approaches for the forces acting on steam bubbles in a water flow could be developed and implemented into the CFX code in close cooperation with the CFX developer ANSYS/CFX. The qualified models allow to simulate the evolution of bubble size specific radial void distribution profiles along the flow path. These theoretical studies and the related experiments at the Rossendorf TOPFLOW test facility represent an important part of the German CFD network that aims at the improvement of thermal hydraulic calculation methods in reactor safety.

    Those mobile devices your students bring to class can do more that tweet and text. Engage your students with these web-based astronomy learning tools that allow students to manipulate astronomical data to learn important concepts. The tools are HTML5, CSS3, Javascript-based applications that provide access to the content on iPad and Android tablets. With "Three Color" students can combine monochrome astronomical images taken through different color filters or in different wavelength regions into a single color image. "Star Clusters" allows students to compare images of clusters with a pre-defined template of colors and sizes to compare clusters of different ages. An adaptation of Travis Rector's "NovaSearch" allows students to examine images of the central regions of the Andromeda Galaxy to find novae and to measure the time over which the nova fades away. New additions to our suite of applications allow students to estimate the surface temperatures of exoplanets and the probability of life elsewhere in the Universe. Further information and access to these web-based tools are available at www.astro.indiana.edu/ala/.

The first step inthe management of reform is identification of the issues that need to beresolved through the implementation of changes.The present research has been aimed at identifying the present weaknessesof the inner management system of traditional Hungarian universities, thusfind a solid starting point for reforming it. I conducted in-depth interviews inthe course of research, with 10 top university managers who represent 9institutions, thus the majority of traditional Hungarian universities. Such aresearch has not been made at least for the last decade.In my paper first I present the current legal framework of the system ofuniversity management. Then I give an assessment of it on the basis of theinterviews, analysing the deficiencies, the external and internal obstacles toefficient management I conclude that the present leaders of theuniversities can exactly identify those deficiencies of the system and therelated external and internal circumstances that lead to disturbed operationand low efficiency. The results obtained through the interviews suggest that areform of the internal management should rearrange intra-university powerrelations and harmonize scopes of responsibility and competence. A shifttoward a stronger central, rectoral and a more limited faculty- and bodyrelatedmanagement appears necessary.

  14. Partial Safety Analysis for a Reduced Uranium Enrichment Core for the High Flux Isotope Reactor

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Primm, Trent [ORNL; Gehin, Jess C [ORNL

    2009-04-01

    A computational model of the reactor core of the High Flux Isotope Rector (HFIR) was developed in order to analyze non-destructive accidents caused by transients during reactor operation. The reactor model was built for the latest version of the nuclear analysis software package called Program for the Analysis of Reactor Transients (PARET). Analyses performed with the model constructed were compared with previous data obtained with other tools in order to benchmark the code. Finally, the model was used to analyze the behavior of the reactor under transients using a different nuclear fuel with lower enrichment of uranium (LEU) than the fuel currently used, which has a high enrichment of uranium (HEU). The study shows that the presence of fertile isotopes in LEU fuel, which increases the neutron resonance absorption, reduces the impact of transients on the fuel and enhances the negative reactivity feedback, thus, within the limitations of this study, making LEU fuel appear to be a safe alternative fuel for the reactor core.

  15. Novel, Ceramic Membrane System For Hydrogen Separation

    Elangovan, S.

    2012-12-31

    Separation of hydrogen from coal gas represents one of the most promising ways to produce alternative sources of fuel. Ceramatec, teamed with CoorsTek and Sandia National Laboratories has developed materials technology for a pressure driven, high temperature proton-electron mixed conducting membrane system to remove hydrogen from the syngas. This system separates high purity hydrogen and isolates high pressure CO{sub 2} as the retentate, which is amenable to low cost capture and transport to storage sites. The team demonstrated a highly efficient, pressure-driven hydrogen separation membrane to generate high purity hydrogen from syngas using a novel ceramic-ceramic composite membrane. Recognizing the benefits and limitations of present membrane systems, the all-ceramic system has been developed to address the key technical challenges related to materials performance under actual operating conditions, while retaining the advantages of thermal and process compatibility offered by the ceramic membranes. The feasibility of the concept has already been demonstrated at Ceramatec. This project developed advanced materials composition for potential integration with water gas shift rectors to maximize the hydrogenproduction.

  16. Improvement of input parameters for the estimation of fuel rod temperature in dry transport cask

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A typical PWR spent fuel bundle has a 17 x 17 rod array, and an analysis requires a very long computation time and a vast amount of memory. Therefore, we applied the lumped fuel bundle analysis approach with the homogenized method to estimate the fuel cladding temperature efficiency. Thermal analysis results for lumped fuel bundles showed an excessive radiative heat transfer, and we applied an emissivity modification factor to compensate for this radiation effect. The value of the factor decreased as the number of the rods in the homogenized array decreased.. For the lumped 8 x 8 array, the best emissivity modification factor was shown to be 0.40. The rod emissivity of 0.8 is generally recommended to be used in COBRA-SFS[D. R. Rector et al.] calculations. Therefore, we can use the modified rod emissivity of 0.32 for lumped 8 x 8 array. There are good agreements between the results from lumped 8 x 8 array bundle and the results from real 17 x 17 array bundle. By homogenization, we can increase the computational speed substantially, as well as reduce the requirements on computer memory and space. (authors)

  18. Safety of Ghana Research Reactor (GHARR-1)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Ghana Research Reactor, GHARR-1 is a low power research rector with maximum thermal power lever of 30kW. The reactor is inherently safe and uses highly enriched uranium (HEU) as fuel, light water as moderator and beryllium as a reflector. The construction, commissioning and operation of this reactor have been subjected to the system of authorization and inspection developed by the Regulatory Authority, the Radiation Protection Board (RPB) with the assistance of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The reactor has been regulated by the preparation of an Interim Safety Analysis Report (SAR) based upon International Atomic Energy Agency standards. An International Safety Assessment peer review and safe inspections have confirmed a high level of operational safety of the reactor since it started operation in 1994. Since its operation there has been no significant reported incident/accidents. Several studies have validated the inherent safety of the reactor. The reactor has been used for neutron activation analysis of various samples, research and teaching. About 1000 samples are analysed annually. The final Safety Analysis Report (SAR) was submitted (after five years of extensive research on the operational reactor) to the Regulatory Authority for review in June 2000. (author)

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available This article focuses on contemporary discussions about university-affiliated lab schools and their growing international networks. Topics include university-affiliated lab schools, the State University of Malang-University of Pittsburgh partnership created by a consortium of rectors in Indonesia, and the growing importance of international professional development networks for university-affiliated lab schools. The instructional leadership side of the partnership has shared ways: (a to design a better aligned curriculum; (b to make learning activities more active and student-oriented; (c to trigger creativity, critical thinking, and independence; (d to practice ongoing assessment; and (e to enrich the cultural repertoire of students. The institutional management side has focused greater attention on: professionalism in management; use of technology; human resources issues of recruitment, induction, and continuing professional development; and more innovative, balanced, transparent and sustainable funding sources. The following recommendations are made. First, fostering international partnerships is a good way for already strong schools to make continuous improvements in both instruction and institutional leadership. Second, partnership sustainability is paramount, especially during transitions in senior university management. Careful and thoughtful construction of the universities’ core memorandum of understanding is time well spent because it becomes embedded in institutional policy.

  2. Feasibility study of advanced fuel burning nuclear reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An investigation has been conducted to determine both physics, engineering and economic aspects of fusion power reactors based on magnetic confinement and on burning advanced fuels (AFs). DT burning Tokamaks are taken as reference concept. We show that the attractive features of advanced fuels, in particular of neutronlean proton-based AFs, can be combined, in appropriately designed AF reactors (high beta), with power densities comparable to or even higher than those achievable in DT Tokamaks. Moreover we identify physical requirements which would assure Q values well above unity. As an example a semi-open confinement scheme is analyzed based on a self-consistent plasma calculation. We find that a mirror, even if only ''semi-open'' as a result of strong diamagnetism, can barely be expected to achieve high Q values. Therefore confinement schemes such as compact tori, multipole surmacs etc. may be required to burn AFs. We conclude that the economics of AF reactors, as determined by the nuclear boiler power density, may be superior to that of DT-rectors if low recirculating power fractions can be obtained by appropriate plasma tayloring (high fractional transfer of fusion power to ions required). A more detailed investigation is suggested for proton-based fuel cycles. (orig.)

  3. Decontamination technology assessment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This study was conducted by the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to identify and technically assess foreign decontamination and decommissioning (D and D) technology developments that may represent significant improvements over D and D technology currently available or under development in the United States. Technology need areas for nuclear power reactor decommissioning operations were identified and prioritized using the results of past light water rector (LWR) decommissioning studies to quantitatively evaluate the potential for reducing cost and decommissioning worker radiation dose for each major decommissioning activity. Based on these identified needs, current foreign D and D technologies of potential interest to the U.S. were identified through personal contacts and the collection and review of an extensive body of D and D literature. These technologies were then assessed qualitatively to evaluate their uniqueness, potential for a significant reduction in D and D costs and/or worker radiation dose, development status, and other factors affecting their value and applicability to U.S. needs

    For the experimental study on the air/water countercurrent flow limitation in Nuclear Reactors, were built at CDTN an acrylic test sections with the same geometric shape of 'hot leg' of a Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR). The hydraulic circuit is designed to be used with air and water at pressures near to atmospheric and ambient temperature. Due to the complexity of the CCFL experimental, the numerical simulation has been used. The aim of the numerical simulations is the validation of experimental data. It is a global trend, the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling and prediction of physical phenomena related to heat transfer in nuclear reactors. The most used CFD codes are: FLUENT®, STAR- CD®, Open Foam® and CFX®. In CFD, closure models are required that must be validated, especially if they are to be applied to nuclear reactor safety. The Thermal- Hydraulics Laboratory of CDTN offers computing infrastructure and license to use commercial code CFX®. This article describes a review about CCFL and the use of CFD for numerical simulation of this phenomenal for Nuclear Rector. (author)

    1976-01-01

    The research in plasma physics and controlled thermonuclear research at M.I.T. has evolved from a relatively long tradition of basic theoretical and experimental contributions, during the period covered by this contract. A major commitment to research in magnetically confined plasmas was undertaken with the Alcator program that began in 1969 and with the theoretical effort necessary to back this up. The Alcator A device was brought to successful operation and, after the identification of a sequence of plasma regimes that have been realized in it, let to attainment record values of plasma density, of the confinement parameter n tau, and of the degree of plasma purity. A second more advanced device, Alcator C, has been designed and is presently under construction. A line of toroidal experiments characterized by relatively low cost and extreme simplicity has been developed in order to study basic plasma physics problems related to magnetic confinement and relevant processes of plasma decontamination. The devices that have been operated are Versator I, now discontinued, Rector, with non-circular cross section, Erasmus, with small aspect ratio and Versator II. A number of theoretical contributions concerning the interpretation of the regimes found in Alcator, runaway phenomena, new trapped particle instabilities, internal resistive modes, etc. have been given and presented in publications or appropriate meetings. A special consideration, within the theoretical effort, has been devoted to the study of plasma regimes that are important in devising future experiments of thermonuclear interest.

  8. Alienation, language and freedom. A note on Bildung in Hegel's writings

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Asger Sørensen

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available The concept of Bildung occupies a central place in the work of Hegel. In the Phenomenology of Spirit from 1807 it is clear that Bildung has a general meaning, which transcends educational contexts. Soon after the publication of the Phenomenology, however, Hegel became the rector of the humanistic Gymnasium in Nürnberg, and this position he kept until 1816. From this period we have some less well known writings, which explicitly discuss Bildung and relate it to educational use. These texts were written at the hight of his philosophical maturity from, when he was working on The Science of Logic and the Encyclopedia, and they therefore deserve being taken seriously. When all these sources are brought together, however, an idea of Bildung often associated with Hegel, namely that Bildung is the result of productive work, seems to be mistaken. I first give a brief account of the general argument, secondly add some details from the Phenomenology to support the argument, and finally conclude with a few general remarks.

  10. Radiolanthanides in therapeutic nuclear oncology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Radiolanthanides such as Holmium-166 (T1/2 26.8h), Samarium-153 (T1/2 46.3h) and Lutetium-177 (T1/2 6.7 days) all have beta emissions suitable for radiopharmaceutical therapy, bone marrow ablation and for pain palliation of skeletal metastases. They also emit gamma photons of energies which permit quantitative imaging on conventional gamma cameras which facilitates calculation of dosimetry in individual patients. The range of half-lives has the potential to match the irradiation of tumour cells to the residence time of the radiopharmaceutical thus minimising radiotoxicity to normal tissues. Relative ease and low cost of production of these radiolanthanides in rectors such as HIFAR at ANSTO render radiolanthanides a practical option for radiopharmaceutical treatment of cancer for patients in whom conventional therapy has failed. Radioimmunotherapy of cancer using various monoclonal antibodies targeted to specific tumor-cell antigens has been performed with Samarium-153, Holmium-166 and Lutetium-177-labelled antibodies in human tumor xenographs in nude mice and in clinical trials. The development of a large animal model of human cancer will be described, in particular in relation to improving the accuracy of prediction of dosimetry and preclinical evaluation of efficacy and toxicity of radiolanthanides in therapeutic nuclear oncology

    Ernst Florens Friedrich Chladni, the son of the rector of the University of Wittenberg, studied law and philosophy at the Universities of Wittenberg and Leipzig, wrote a dissertation in each of these disciplines and became an experimentalist concerned with sound and vibrations. Chladni's name is associated with the Chladni figures, and this is the first real effort to experimentally investigate the nature of sound. In the lecture the publications of Chladni are presented and, cursorily, his new instruments, designed and built by the physicist. Chladni began to tour half Europe in his own coach with sufficient space for his musical instruments. He gave lectures on the physics of plate and rod vibrations and included demonstrations of the figures and his musical instruments. Chladni's work has had a profound influence on the experimental advances in acoustics, room acoustics, in the verification of theories of superposition of waves, in elasticity, vibrational modes, sound velocities in various media, and much more. The lecture presents a portrait of the scientist Chladni, the times, and his contributions to experimental acoustics which influenced research for many decades.

    Transmission electron microscopy used to evaluate the deformation (creep, fatigue and tensile) induced microstructure of 304 SS, Incoloy 800, 330 SS and three of the experimental alloys (E19, E23 and E36) obtained from the National Alloy Program clearly shows that the relationship between the subgrain size (lambda) and the applied stress (sigma) obeys the equation lambda = Ab (sigma/E)/sup -1/ where A is a constant of the order of 4, b the Burgers rector and E is Young's modulus. Hot-hardness studies on 304 SS, 316 SS, Incoloy 800, 2 /sup 1///sub 4/ Cr-1 Mo steels, 330 SS, Inconel 718, PE-16, Inconel 706, M-813 and the above three experimental alloys suggests that reasonable effective activation energies for creep may be obtained through the use of the hardness test as a strength microprobe tool. The ordering of the strength levels obtained through hot-hardness follows quite closely that obtained in tensile tests when those data are available.

    Full Text Available Este articulo ¡lustra la situación de las profesiones contable y auditora en la Unión Europea Se parte de una breve htstona de la gestación de la Unión Europea, continuando con los órganos rectores y los medios documentales-jurídicos con los que se instrumenta su organización. Se muestra seguidamente cómo se encuentran institucionalizadas la profesión contable y la auditoria en los países de la Unión y se analizan las causas que originan diferencias de criterios y usos contables en dichos países Consecuentemente con este análisis, se expresan comparativamente las directivas de la propia Unión (Octava Directiva, con la doctrina y las normas internacionales de auditoria, las propuestas para llevar a cabo una armonización eficiente y eficaz de la auditoria en la Unión Europea. Finalmente, se efectúa una exposición sobre cómo nacer realidad en el futuro la armonización contable y de la auditoria en la Unión.

    Full Text Available En un claustro de Diputados del 24 de Septiembre de 1624, presidido por el Vicerrector D. Diego de Ángulo, en ausencia de D. Enrique de Guzmán, rector entonces de la Universidad, se tomaba el acuerdo de nombrar una comisión, cuyo cometido consistía en el estudio y recogida, para darlos a la luz, de toda la serie de estatutos por los que venía gobernándose el Estudio salmantino. De esta recopilación se hicieron cargo el P. Maestro Fr. Antonio de Ledesma y el Señor Doctor Martín López de Hontiveros. Un mes más tarde, aproximadamente, la tarea se daba por concluida y los comisarios la presentaban al claustro, que decidió, de inmediato, proceder a su publicación, encargando de ello a los mismos recopiladores; la impresión definitiva data de Junio de 1625 y está precedida de una introducción, que viene a ser una síntesis de la historia del Estudio desde el punto de vista de las disposiciones y reglamentos.

  18. OECD Halden Reactor Project

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The OECD Halden Reactor project is an agreement between OECD member countries. It was first signed in 1958 and since then regularly renewed every third year. The activities at the Project is centred around the Halden heavy water rector, the HBWR. The reseach programme comprizes studies of fuel performance under various operating conditions, and the application of computers for process control. The HBWR is equipped for exposing fuel rods to temperatures and pressures, and at heat ratings met in modern BWR's and PWR's. A range of in-core instruments are available, permitting detailed measurements of the reactions of the fuel, including mechanical deformations, thermal behaviour, fission gas release, and corrosion. In the area of computer application, the studies of the communication between operator and process, and the surveillance and control of the reactor core, are of particular interst for reactor operation. 1988 represents the 30th year since the Project was started, and this publication is produced to mark this event. It gives and account of the activities and achievements of the Project through the years 1958-1988

  20. La publicidad gubernamental del poder ejecutivo en San Juan: hacia la construcción del mito de gobierno

    Full Text Available Este artículo se desprende de un proyecto de investigación iniciado en el 2014, en el Gabinete de Estudios en Comunicación de la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, UNSJ, cuyo objetivo es lograr una descripción comprensiva del uso y los sentidos de las comunicaciones emitidas por el Ejecutivo Provincial en sus diferentes formatos y soportes en relación con la democracia sanjuanina. Abordamos aquí el estudio de la publicidad gubernamental publicada en el principal medio gráfico provincial durante seis meses. Los mensajes son analizados desde su dimensión simbólica, en tanto conecta con la cultura política al crear y sostener una identidad ciudadana. La identificación de valores, principios, imágenes y representaciones subyacentes nos permite acceder a la red de sentido constitutiva y constituyente del llamado mito de gobierno, el metamensaje que traduce los objetivos trascendentes del proyecto gubernamental. El descubrimiento del mito pone en evidencia, en el caso estudiado, un relato épico que ancla en valores tradicionales y cristianos con el progreso por principio rector de las políticas públicas. Un Estado solidario, paternalista y benefactor que funde pasado y presente para proyectarse a un destino glorioso. Un mito no exento de contradicciones, de negaciones y de silencios.
