    Full Text Available Gran especialista en historia moderna, Alberto Tenenti nació en Viareggio, en 1924. Tras realizar estudios superiores en Italia, trabajó en el Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique varios años, asesorado por Lucien Febvre. Ha dirigido el Archivo del Estado de Brescia; y, más tarde, ha enseñado en París, desde una cátedra en la École Pratique des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (VI Sección, alIado de Braudel. Su Il senso della morte e l'amore della vita nel Rinascimento, de 1957, es una obra maestra sobre los orígenes de la sensibilidad moderna: sin olvidar el naciente vitalismo, estudia el desarrollo de dos motivos, el del ars moriendi, que tiene su evolución propia desde 1350 hasta su difusión impresa, y el de lo macabro, que refleja la crisis de conciencia del siglo XV y adquiere «unas dimensiones desconocidas y verdaderamente anormales». En este libro sobre un problema clave como la muerte, apela de modo notable a la iconografía: Tenenti ha recordado que la cultura tradicional, eclesiástica sobre todo, percibió un mayor peligro en la capacidad de reflexión autónoma y de crítica de los hombres de letras, que en las renovaciones radicales de los artistas. Numerosos trabajos de conjunto realizados por él han perseguido una historia global: Los fundamentos del mundo moderno; Florencia en la época de los Medicis; La formación del mundo moderno; El Renacimiento; el primero de ellos estaba firmado con un historiador de su misma generación, R. Romano, estudioso de las relaciones comerciales en la época moderna en Europa y en la América española. Tenenti ha publicado monografías (Venezia e i corsari, 1961, colecciones de artículos (Credence, ideologie, libertinismi tra medioevo ed eta moderna, 1978; Stato: un'idea, una logica.

    Klossiella tejerai Scorza, Torrealba & Dagert, 1957 is a primitive coccidian parasite reported from the New World marsupials Didelphis marsupialis (Linnaeus) and Marmosa demerarae (Thomas). The current work describes K. tejerai from the Brazilian common opossum Didelphis aurita (Wied-Neuwied) in Southeastern Brazil, evidencing the coccidial dispersion across opossums of the same family. The sporocysts recovered from urine samples were ellipsoidal, 20.4 × 12.7 µm, with sporocyst residuum composed of scattered spherules and c.13 sporozoites per sporocyst, with refractile bodies and nucleus. Macrogametes, microgametes, sporonts, sporoblasts/sporocysts were identified within parasitophorous vacuoles of epithelial cells located near the renal corticomedullary junction. Didelphis marsupialis should not have transmitted K. tejerai to D. aurita because they are not sympatric; however M. demerarae is sympatric with D. marsupialis and D. aurita. Therefore, D. aurita becomes the third host species for K. tejerai in South America. PMID:25079818

    Full Text Available Los procesos culturales de los pueblos rurales de América Latina en cuanto a su parte inmaterial, están íntimamente relacionados con la memoria colectiva y/o social, la cual puede fungir, entre otras cosas, para afianzar la transmisión de leyendas creadas por la sabiduría popular por medio de la tradición oral. En los llanos centro-occidentales venezolanos a lo largo de más dos siglos se ha diseminado cantidad de leyendas que cuentan la aparición de espíritus que vagan por las sabanas solitarias, sobre todo en las noches de mayor oscuridad; los llamados “espantos de la sabana” son las almas de antiguos pobladores, ya conocidos, que deambulan pidiendo oraciones para su descanso eterno, o por no poder encontrar la paz que procuran. Dichas narraciones, al pasar de generación en generación forman parte de la identidad llanera y son incluidas en la literatura nacional; en el presente artículo se destaca esta característica colocando como ejemplo la novela de Rómulo Gallegos, Cantaclaro, así como coplas populares o aquellas recopiladas por Alberto Arvelo Torrealba para establecer el enlace existente entre la creación y transmisión de las leyendas y la religiosidad de dicha cultura.

  17. Reading W.G. Sebald with Alberto Giacometti

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Timothy Matthews

    2006-09-01

    Full Text Available Where is Alberto Giacometti? The question seems to arise materially from an engagement with his art and the invitations it seems to extend. Much of his art is a life-long exploration of visual representation itself, of the attempt to visualise objects in a two or threedimensional space; to place people in space. But that placing is elusive, and the places seem to dissolve, making Giacometti’s idiom at once unique and beyond reach, perhaps even untouchable – and this from the creator of such tactile-looking pieces. One way of accepting this invitation to engage with an art that wonders how anything can be engaged with is to ask what it can tell us about the art of others. In this essay, I want to see what the art of Sebald can tell me about the art of Giacometti.

    Full Text Available Since T. A. Sprague wrote his outstanding essays many years ago on the meaning of botanical terms used by Plinius, Isidorus, Albertus and Ruellius, no one else had resumed this task, which is essential for the history of botany. Though Albertus explained vegetal structure in terms of the function it fulfils, the methodology used here ignores Physiology and concentrates on Morphology. After discussing the composition of De Vegetabilibus, we deal with organs using the order and division established by Albertus: succus, nodus, radix. venae, stipes, ramus, cortex, flos, folium, fructus, and so on.

    Desde los ya lejanos, y meritísimos, trabajos de T. A. Sprague sobre el significado de los términos botánicos empleados por Plinio, Isidoro, Alberto y Ruellius, nadie había reemprendido tan necesaria tarea para la historia de la botánica. Aunque la razón de una estructura vegetal se explica, en San Alberto, por la función que cumple, aquí prescindimos metodológicamente de la fisiología para ceñirnos a la morfología. Tras exponer la composición del De Vegetabilibus, abordamos los distintos órganos de la planta según el orden y la división trazados por él: succus, nodus, radix, venae, stipes, ramus, cortex, flos, fructus, etcétera.

  19. Profile of Alberto Ruz Lhuillier as a Young Man

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available The attitudes and beliefs that archaeologists bring to their profession can have important impacts upon the manner in which they approach their work; therefore, studying an archaeologist’s life can shed light on archaeological history. An investigation of the early life of the Mexican archaeologist Alberto Ruz Lhuillier provides fascinating evidence of just how life experiences can have an impact on attitudes and theoretical approaches. Ruz was the archaeologist who, in 1952, discovered the magnificent tomb of the Classic Maya King of Palenque, Mexico, K’inich Janaab’ Pakal I. Research into Ruz’s early life sheds light on why he had negative opinions about the United States (US, and highlights the experiences that caused them, and explains how they changed. When Ruz moved to Cuba in the 1930s, and learned about the impact of American interference in Cuban affairs, he became deeply involved in the socialist revolution to oust Cuba’s US puppet dictators and to free his country from ‘yanqui’ imperialism. In addition, these early student life experiences exposed him to other students who espoused the theories and ideas of Karl Marx. Later Ruz would use some of these theories to explain the development and fall of ancient Maya civilization.

  15. An experience of marine macrofouling control in Angra 1 - Almirante Alvaro Alberto nuclear power plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    One of the greatest problems at the Power Plants that use sea water in the circulating water system, is the development of fouling in its sections. In Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto - Angra 1, this fouling is represented by barnacles. These barnacles have contributed significantly to the damaging in the condenser tubes, resulting in the changing from cooper alloy tubes to Titanium ones. To help the understanding of the development and control of fouling, some researches and observations have been made using techniques adequated to Angra 1. The low-level continuous chlorination, the water flux variation and the continuous cleaning tubes system (AMERTAP) combined and used in circulation water sistem, showed satisfactory preliminar results in fouling control.

Dicha Filosofía Política es solo relativamente autónoma respecto de la Metafísica y de la Teología Sobrenatural, pues aun cuando posee principios propios, un objeto formal propio y un fin también propio, que es el Bien Común Político, los principios, el objeto formal y el fin derivan a su modo, del Ser y del Bien Supremo que son las primeras creaciones de Dios. Hay pues una evidente relación de subordinación entre la Ciencia Política y la Sabiduría cuyo objeto es Dios mismo.

    Full Text Available À la tête du Pérou de 1990 à 2000, Alberto Fujimori a su rester populaire en combinant les recettes traditionnelles et nouvelles du populisme. Le discrédit des partis politiques et des syndicats a constitué un contexte favorable à l’arrivée et au maintien au pouvoir de ce non-professionnel de la politique, auquel des valeurs d’honnêteté et de compétence ont été spontanément prêtées. Le chef d’Etat péruvien a construit en outre, tout au long de ses mandats successifs, une stratégie politique destinée à asseoir sa légitimité. Cette stratégie s’est fondée sur des actions telles que : la mise en place d’une relation directe et quasi affective avec les couches les plus défavorisées de la population par le biais de pratiques clientélistes ; la déstructuration du tissu social dans l’objectif d’éviter toute opposition et de renforcer le pouvoir du chef de l’Etat ; l’instrumentalisation de certains groupes d’acteurs, notamment par l’intermédiaire des programmes sociaux ; enfin, le contrôle permanent, et sans cesse renforcé, de l’information, via la surveillance des médias et des opposants. Fondée sur une image d’efficacité, la gestion politique d’Alberto Fujimori est demeurée populaire jusqu’à la fin des années 1990, lorsque la révélation d’affaires de corruption a accéléré la chute de son régime.Presidente de Perú de 1990 a 2000, Alberto Fujimori supo conservar su popularidad mezclando viejas y nuevas recetas del populismo.

  19. Risk analysis update of the Radiation Monitor Calibration Laboratory of the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Power Station

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In 2001, a Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) of the Radiation Monitor Calibration Laboratory of the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Power Station (CNAAA) was performed. The main purpose of this work was to update the original PSA study and to obtain the updated radiologic risk, as well as to include a human reliability analysis of the procedure of radiation monitor calibration. Some accident scenarios were incorporated for evaluating their importance for an accident that might expose a worker to gamma radiation. For obtaining the probability of occurrence of an exposition of a worker during an accident, the Bayesian approach has been used for the calculation of the irradiator failure probability, for this approach is often used when few plant information is available. For the other equipment used in the radiation monitor calibration, the exponential distribution is used to model their failure times for they are assumed to be in their useful life period. The human reliability was modeled by the THERP technique. Although more accident scenarios are considered in this work, including the contribution of human errors, a conservative approach was not used and thus a smaller radiological risk, about one order magnitude smaller was obtained.

    2015-10-01

    The article seeks to reflect on the contribution of Joaquim Alberto Cardoso de Melo (1936-1993) to the field of public health relating his life story and his scientific production with core issues of education and health, present in his time and which remain in debate to this day. His contribution resulted in the production of new meanings for health practices, with the understanding as social and transdisciplinary phenomena. Based on conversations with co-authors and friends and rereading of his texts, it was decided to approach his biography from: (i) his skills and participation in initiatives and practices of preventive medicine and popular education, which fomented the critical analysis of health education; (ii) his presence as an educator in public health courses throughout the country, eliciting the deconstruction of the theories and practices of education and health with managers, students, professionals and teachers; (iii) his availability for transdisciplinary dialogue with the humanities and social sciences in the search for "epistemological sutures" between reason and passion, capable of responding to the dilemmas and challenges of healthcare work. These three trajectories indicate that the performance of "Quincas" must be understood from his restlessness as a health professional and educator, engaged in the production of knowledge and practices related to the complexity of the phenomenon of life.

    2008-04-01

    Since the time of Freud, many psychoanalysts have seen screen memories and earliest memories as reflecting underlying dynamics. I propose that an earliest remembered artwork is a highly condensed construction similar to a screen memory. Alberto Giacometti's earliest remembered drawing, of Snow White in Her Coffin, contains clues to the artist's personality and references to childhood experience. Giacometti's memory of the drawing done in childhood is a striking condensation of significant biographical events and psychodynamic conflicts, as well as a marker of important unconscious fantasies. The artist's postwar sculptural style, utilizing gaunt figures, epitomizes the final transformation of the psychological meaning of his earliest remembered drawing. PMID:18512362

    Full Text Available In the second half of the 1990s, the Fujimori  government in Peru implemented a population  policy to sterilize poor, rural and indigenous  women according to quotas. How such a neoMalthusian policy was possible in a post-Cairo,  post-Beijing era of increasing attention for  women’s rights has, however, been relatively  understudied. This article argues that the government could impose such policies because 1 it  presented its plans with a deceiving rhetoric in  which emancipatory and developmental arguments were mixed to cover-up its interests in costeffective poverty-reduction through population  policies, and 2 because it could rely upon the  long-existing inequalities based on racism and  sexism that conditions the lives of poor Peruvians.  Unique auto-ethnographical material about Andean women’s reproductive lives, drawn up by a  feminist NGO, is used to underpin these arguments.  Resumen: ¿Opción libre o paliación de la pobreza? Políticas demográficas en Perú  durante el gobierno de Alberto FujimoriEn la segunda mitad de los años noventa, el gobierno de Fujimori en Perú implementó una polí- tica demográfica que consistió en esterilizar a las  mujeres pobres, del campo e indígenas, de acuerdo a un sistema de cuotas. Cómo fue posible  formular e implementar semejante política neomalthusiana después del Cairo y de Pekín, período  en el que se presta creciente atención a los derechos de las mujeres, ha sido, sin embargo, relativamente poco estudiado. Este artículo sostiene  que el gobierno pudo imponer esas medidas debido a que 1 presentó sus planes con un retórica  engañosa en la que se utilizaron argumentos  emancipatorios y de desarrollo para encubrir sus  intereses en la aplicación de políticas demográficas rentables de reducción de la pobreza, y 2  porque pudo descansar en las persistentes desigualdades derivadas del racismo y del sexismo,  que condicionan la vida de los peruanos

    Full Text Available O texto discorre sobre a obra científica e as proposições de proteção à natureza do botânico brasileiro Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, um dos maiores conhecedores da flora brasileira e um dos pioneiros do conservacionismo no país. Analisa diversos pontos de sua trajetória de cientista, ativista e professor. A atenção recai especialmente sobre as suas três principais produções literárias, publicadas entre 1926 e 1935, nas quais focaliza a distribuição geográfica dos conjuntos de vegetação do Brasil e propõe diversos programas de aproveitamento racional e de preservação dos recursos naturais brasileiros. Mostra-se que as suas idéias estavam influenciadas pelos ideais de um estado forte capaz de construir uma nova identidade nacional, com base na riqueza da natureza brasileira. A conclusão é que as idéias de Sampaio foram avançadas para a sua época e que elas conservam grande parte de sua atualidade, mesmo depois de décadas de prevalência de uma ideologia desenvolvimentista em que ele e diversos cientistas naturais conservacionistas seus contemporâneos foram quase inteiramente esquecidos.The text discusses the scientific output and the proposals for nature protection by the Brazilian botanist Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, one of Brazil.s leading plant scientists and one of the country.s pioneer conservationists.

The emphasis falls on his three major books, published between 1926 and 1935, in which he writes about the geographic distribution of Brazil's vegetational forms and presents many proposals in favor of the rational use and preservation of the country.s natural resources. It is shown that his proposals were influenced by the concept of the need of a strong State that could build a new national identity, based on Brazilian nature.

    Full Text Available What remains of angels?: A re-reading of the novel of Fra’ Alberto (Decameron IV, 2, between the masks of the angel and the uom selvaticoBoccaccio’s novel about brother Alberto is usually considered an amusing divertissement presented by the author himself as a contrast to the preceding tragic novel involving Tancredi and Ghismunda. A much more serious meaning can be found, however, beyond the comic facet, this being a deep and somewhat bitter vision of a man living in the Late Middle Ages, lost between the earthly and heavenly dimension. This article exploits the well known visual aspects of Boccaccio’s novels and focuses on the visual representation of the main character and its iconographical connotations, which in certain cases seems to fill up the silence of the text. Two of Alberto’s masks (the intentional mask of the angel and the punitive mask of ‘uom salvatico’ appear imperfect, provisional and actually overlap one other. This image places both the real and fictional identities of the character at risk and converges them in a sort of final metamorphosis and equation. On a textual level, this concept is supported by the high incidence of the terms ‘agnolo’ and ‘salvatico’, as well as by a pun based on a false etymological affinity between ‘salvatore’ and ‘salvatico’ (the same used by Edmund Spenser in his The Faerie Queene.

    In order to respond to a major radiological emergency at the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant, located in Angra do Reis, Rio de Janeiro, the Emergency Response Team of the Institute of Radiation Protection and Dosimetry (IRD/CNEN) established a program of environmental monitoring. A monitoring trend to assess the off-site radiological conditions and give support to decision making for implementing protective measure in case of a radiological accident is presented. For the selection of the monitoring points, the program takes into account atmospheric diffusion, population conglomerates and their habits, water and land use; it includes the entire Emergency Planning Zone of 15 km radius. The program has been organized in the form of a handbook to facilitate handling by field teams

    Full Text Available Objetivos: Evaluar la biodiversidad de macroinvertebrados y la calidad ecológica de la microcuenca San Alberto (provincia de Oxapampa, Pasco de abril a julio de 2013. Métodos: El muestreo fue realizado en tres zonas de la microcuenca San Alberto (cuenca alta, media y baja. En los tres sitios fueron colectados macroinvertebrados bentónicos en piedra y arena. Luego se estimaron: el índice biótico andino (IBA, de hábitat fluvial (IHF, de calidad de vegetación de ribera andina (QBRAnd y de estado ecológico (ECOSTRIAND. Se evaluaron parámetros fisicoquímicos, nutrientes y metales en el agua. Resultados: Se registraron un total de 123 taxones de 47 familias (101 taxones en la cuenca alta, 77 en la cuenca media y 55 en la cuenca baja. La mayor abundancia de macroinvertebrados se presentó en la cuenca media. El IBA resultó ser de “muy buena” calidad para la cuenca alta, media y baja, pero al combinarse este índice con el QBR-And, para elaborar el Índice ECOSTRIAND, se observó el estado ecológico de las cuencas alta y media fueron de “muy buena” calidad y de la cuenca baja fue “regular”. El método de muestreo de limpieza de piedras fue el que permitió colectar la mayor cantidad de taxones. Las mejores condiciones de hábitat fluvial, de vegetación ribereña y de estado ecológico, tras la aplicación de los índices IHF, QBR-And y ECOSTRIAND, se encuentran en la cuenca alta. Conclusiones: Los resultados indican que la diferencia de calidad de hábitat ribereño y fluvial así como de conductividad, sólidos disueltos y nitratos influyen negativamente sobre la calidad del agua, y ésta, sobre la comunidad de macroinvertebrados. Las familias reportadas como sensibles a la contaminación (Leptophlebiidae, Oligoneuriidae, Perlidae, Anomalopsychidae, Calamoceratidae, Helicopsychidae, Odontoceridae, Blephariceridae mostraron ser bioindicadores de calidad de agua para la microcuenca.

    Full Text Available El carácter de Alberto Blest Gana como fundador de la novela chilena mal podría ligarlo a la práctica del folletín, aunque registra numerosos títulos publicados en revistas y periódicos. Por lo demás, su filiación como aventajado discípulo de Balzac menos podría propiciar un vínculo con la literatura popular o de masas, como se desarrolló en Francia a mediados del siglo XIX. Y es que el canon literario nacional se construye a partir de una élite intelectual -ilustrada y liberal- que participa de la construcción social de la Nación como la que propiciaba José Victorino Lastarria y el propio Blest Gana -en sus respectivos manifiestos literarios-, en cuya conformación la cultura popular no participa más allá de un “costumbrismo” folklórico, o como un “sabor” local, o como un “pintoresquismo” para solaz de los lectores cultos. En este artículo se indaga en los formantes folletinescos en la narrativa de Blest Gana, recurriendo a las tesis acerca de la literatura popular que han sido postuladas, entre otros, por Eco (1981, 2012; Martín-Barbero (2010, Herlinghaus (2002, Sarlo (1985.

  8. Determination of concentration factors for Chromium cesium, iron and cobalt in corvine and shrimp in the vicinities of Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order to verify if the concentration factors for dose calculations in critical population recommended by the International Atomic Energy (IAEA), on the Safety Series 57, are in agreement with local factors, studies were carried out at Piraquara de Dentro bay, a region in the vicinities of the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant (CNAAA). Chromium, caesium, iron and cobalt concentration factors for corvine and shrimp were determined using the activation analysis method by neutrons, taking into account the same behaviour between radioactive and stable from the same physicochemical form. This study has evidenced that: The local values of cesium, iron and cobalt concentration factors for corvine (fish) are in the same order of magnitude of the IAEA recommended values; The chromium, caesium and cobalt concentration factor values determined for shrimp for Piraquara de Dentro bay are in the same order of magnitude or smaller than those proposed by IAEA, while the concentration factor value for ion is one order of magnitude higher than the IAEA recommended value.

  9. Reevaluation of environmental monitoring program for radiological emergency at Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant, Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order to respond to a major radiological emergency at the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant, located in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, the Emergency Response Team of the Institute for Radiation Protection and Dosimetry (IRD/CNEN) established a program of environmental monitoring. The purpose of this program is to define a monitoring trend to assess the off-site radiological conditions and give support to decision making for implementing protective measures in case of a radiological accident, taking into account atmospheric diffusion, population conglomerates and their habits, water and land use, contemplating the entire Emergency Planning Zone of 15 km radius. This program has been reevaluated recently, aiming to optimize it and keep it up to date to assure adequacy of environmental surveillance data in support to a prompt response in case of an emergency situation in the nuclear power plant. It has been organized in the form of a handbook to facilitate handling by field teams. Future revisions will be necessary to incorporate additional pertinent information and keep the handbook up to date, since Angra dos Reis is a summer resort region, subject to constant changes. This paper discusses the structure of the environmental monitoring program and describes the content and preparation of this handbook. (author)

  17. Emission of 14C by the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant 1 and 2 and their local effects on the environmental levels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    14C is a is a long-lived beta-emitting nuclide (T1/2 = 5730 years) produced naturally in the upper atmosphere as a result of reactions between neutrons and stable 14N(14N(n,p)14C). Although in a lesser extent, nuclear power plants produce 14C as well during their routine operation. Since it is converted in 14CO2 and mixed throughout the atmosphere, it is incorporated into plant tissues, via photosynthesis process, and hence in food chain. Because of the biological importance of 14C and long half-life, it is of interest to quantify the amounts released by nuclear industry. The Brazilian nuclear central named Nuclear Central Admiral Alvaro Alberto (CNAAA) has two nuclear reactors of PWR type in operation, Angra I (657 MWe) and Angra II (1350 MWe), and one under construction, Angra III (1309 MWe PWR). The aim of this study was to determine the strength of the sources and the 14C content in the environment through analyses of air, vegetation and soils taken within 5 km (the influenced area) of CNAAA. The thesis consists of an extensive review about the subject (part one) and of four papers (part two). The first paper is about the determination of 14C concentrations released by reactors (source strength). For Angra I, a device was developed in order to sample the gaseous effluents and for Angra II, a commercial monitoring system had already been implemented since its initial operation (2001). The 14C can be emitted as hydrocarbons, CO or CO2, depending on the type of reactor. For PWRs, the main chemical form released is hydrocarbons (80 %). The monitoring system of Angra I was planned to determine both CO2 and hydrocarbon fractions but in Angra II, all hydrocarbons are converted to CO2 by using a Pd/Al2O3 catalyst at 450 deg C. The liquid scintillation was the method employed to measure the samples. The second one concerns the atmospheric dispersion of the released radiocarbon through measurements of air samples taken with 3 km from power plants, in five different wind

In his diary he follows with passion and detail the first seven weeks of the Second Spanish Republic. Fr. Risco, more inclined to fundamentalism and traditionalism rather than to the Republic, gives us a vivid, personal and latent view of the situation along the lines of the writings of analysts and journalists of that time. As Jesuit, his biggest concern was the fate of the Church and of the Society of Jesus. Consequently, he stopped writing on the painful 11th May 1931.El jesuita padre Alberto Risco (1873-1937 fue un reconocido autor de textos católicos y cristianos de corte popular y devoto, entre los que podemos destacar Emigración y su muy famoso Compendio de Historia de la Literatura Española.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho vincula-se ao projeto “História das Ideias, Historicidade e Identidades Culturais” do departamento de História da Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, coordenado pelo Prof. Dr. Carlos H. Armani, e, sob coorientação da mestranda do Programa de Pós-graduação em História – UFSM Jóice Anne A. Carvalho. Busca-se traçar uma linha teórica referente à constituição da Nação e o papel do indivíduo mergulhado na coletividade, ou seja, quem compõe e quem não compõe a estrutura social do Brasil na construção do eu nacional. Ao longo do século XIX e início do século XX, pensadores de várias áreas das ciências começaram a se questionar sobre as diferenças dos seres humanos e que, mais tarde, desembocariam num discurso hierárquico de raças. Essas menções à suposta inferioridade da raça brasileira fez com que Alberto Torres, assumisse uma posição contrária a esse discurso, expondo-a no livro “O Problema Nacional Brasileiro” (1914. Sua teoria sobre as raças afirmava que a única questão que podia vir a contribuir para certa diferenciação racial seriam os fatores mesológicos de uma Nação, mais precisamente, o clima. Nesta mesma linha de pensamento, o autor Monteiro Lobato também analisa a composição da população brasileira e a discussão acerca da hierarquização racial tão em voga no período. Em seu livro “Problema Vital” (1918, nega a afirmação de inferioridade da raça brasileira e aponta as medidas que o Estado deveria tomar para que a população conseguisse atingir o progresso. Lobato também acaba resgatando a figura do caboclo, numa clara tendência de traçar um perfil para o brasileiro.

    Since T. A. Sprague wrote his outstanding essays many years ago on the meaning of botanical terms used by Plinius, Isidorus, Albertus and Ruellius, no one else had resumed this task, which is essential for the history of botany. Though Albertus explained vegetal structure in terms of the function it fulfils, the methodology used here ignores Physiology and concentrates on Morphology. After discussing the composition of De Vegetabilibus, we deal with organs using the or...

  13. Safety probabilistic study of Almirante Alvaro Alberto nuclear power plant-Unit I

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The phase A of probabilistic safety study of Angra I nuclear power plant is presented, to be used by CNEN and FURNAS Centrais Eletricas S.A. as standard model in operational and safety analysis. The methodology applied is a modernization of WASH 1400/2.11/ study. Angra I safety systems are described. The selection and qualification of initiating sequence accident events which can damage the reactor core are done. The accident scenes are developed using the method of event trees. The reactor in subcritical condition (pressure, fuel temperature within limits and controlled level of reactor vessel) is studied during 24 hours. The uncertainness in failure probabilities of systems and in the determination of sequence frequencies for core danification are evaluated. Total frequency of sequences which cause the fusion of reactor core are presented. (M.C.K.)

    Albert the Great establishes a tripartite division for philosophy, in which “real philosophy” is comprised of physics, mathematics and metaphysics, organized secundum ordinem doctrinae. Metaphysics constitutes the most sublime knowledge, and is called scientia divina. It articulates with theology in the manner of a grading of different levels of intelligibility, and which reveals the dialectic problem between faith and reason.

    Full Text Available Ao definir-se como um quarto de espelhos fantásticos, Fernando Pessoa encontra no espelho a única certeza comum a todas as “reflexões falsas”, a materialização da “única anterior realidade” que os seus inúmeros espelhos “torcem”. Tomando a Branca de Neve como uma sublimação final da beleza usurpadora da Madrasta e a corporização de uma beleza inicial, considerarei os “inúmeros espelhos fantásticos” de Pessoa e o “cracked looking glass” de Joyce como distorcidas sequelas de uma qualquer pureza de origem ou de uma superfície reflectora una. Argumento que Caeiro, Bloom, o Império Espiritual de Pessoa e a “Irlanda Caricatura do Mundo Sério” de Joyce virão a ser a materialização dessa superfície reflectora de origem, Brancas de Neve posteriores às realidades que lhes são madrastas mas colocadas estrategicamente na sua origem e destinadas a suprir a ausência de uma “única anterior realidade” – pessoal, nacional e global.

    Full Text Available The meaning of “infra” attests a symbolic value of the contemporary space and an existential condition of modern living, absorbed nowadays by the flows of variable networks overlapping Landscape. Can we describe the infrastructural system of the current Cultural Landscapes? How will it change in the near future? The answers can be provided by analyzing the Italian and European trends connecting landscape architecture and infrastructural design, as well as re-calling the stimulating results of national scientific researchers on infrastructures-territory-architecture. From the minor dimension to the international one, the final remark of the present paper traces local issues back to the global assets and it suggests to re-define landscapes’ identities through the flexible spaces linked to the infrastructures.

    As discussed in the first talk, the scaling of the island density with the flux F and/or the capture zone distribution (CZD) can be used to determine the size of the critical nucleus i, but so far an analytic function for CZD exists only for diffusion-limited aggregation (DLA). For CZD the scaling function is Pβ (s) =aβsβ exp (-bβs2) , with β = i + 2 . We have extended the analytic description of the CZD in terms of Pβ also to attachment-limited aggregation (ALA); in this case we obtain β = (i + 3) / 2 . Furthermore, we could demonstrate that the general relationship αβ = i holds, independent of the aggregation mechanism. This important exponent equality should help to better characterize nucleation and growth of thin films. Work at Graz supported by Austrian Science Fund (FWF), Project No. P 23530.

    OpenAIRE

    Crabtree, John

    2007-01-01

    The ten-years presidency of Alberto Fujimori in Peru is a classic example of the sort of hybrid democracy that emerged in various Latin American countries in the 1990s, combining a mixture of democratic and clearly non-democratic elements. Fujimori was one of the more autocratic Latin American leaders of the 1990s, he is being the only regime formally to break with pre-existing constitutional rules. Closely tied to the military and intelligence apparatus, his government involved a concentrati...

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This article emphasizes aspects of the violence as a relevant theme in the literary Brazilian production of the last decade. The examples situate the discourse narrative as a consequence of the disordered growth of the urban centers affected by economic models that generate unfairness and social inequality. The needy communities controlled by the drug trafficking effective themselves as the stage where still dominates the crime and the prostitution. The works of Paulo Lins, Ferréz, Luiz Alberto Mendes e Alessandro Buzo approximate the reader to the social reality that was lived by them.

    Desde tiempos prehispánicos Cajamarca ha sido una importante zona agropecuaria. Pero en las décadas recientes se ha convertido en una zona de agudas convulsiones sociales. Durante el gobierno anticonstitucional de Alberto Fujimori (1990-2002), el estado permitió el ingreso de trasnacionales mineras para la extracción de oro a gran escala. Estas han dañado considerablemente el eco-sistema, la salud y el bienestar de la población local, creando descontento social y protestas. En ese contexto, e...

  14. Fundamental and Applied Bioorganometallic Chemistry of Technetium and Rhenium

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Site directed accumulation is the base for therapy and imaging with inorganic medicinal compounds. To match selectively the structural properties of receptors, the topology of targeting complexes must be flexible and easily adaptable. For in vivo application, kinetic stability is desirable and in an advanced design, the complex itself can become part of the structure to be recognized by the receptor (3D structural space occupation concept).1 To match these requirements, we introduced the fac-{99mTcI(CO)3}+ building block many years ago. Many different complexes with this core were subjected to targeting studies and the organometallic chemistry of Tc developed rapidly beyond designs for molecular imaging. Some prominent examples will give insight into their structures and activities for molecular imaging. For complementing the fac-{99mTcI(CO)3}+ tag, we switched from low- to high-valent complexes. The isolobal fac-{99mTcVII(O)3}+ building block was introduced.2 Preparation of TcVII complexes is an example about how research is translated to routinely applicable conditions. For proceeding towards theranostics, homologous complexes with Re for therapy and with 99mTc complexes for imaging are mandatory. A new synthetic approach enabled the preparation of cyclopentadienyl complexes of both elements and based on pharmaceutically active lead structures.3 Newly introduced bis-arene complexes scopes at using these structures in analogy to ferrocene.4 The presentation exemplifies how questions from, ultimately practical, application lead to basic developments. Unexpected results in turn influence the discovery of new imaging and therapeutic agents.5 (1) Meggers, E. Curr. Opin. Chem. Biol. 2007, 11, 287. (2) Braband, H.; Tooyama, Y.; Fox, T.; Alberto, R.

De acuerdo con la autora, el período nacionalista objetivo se caracteriza por la presencia directa de elementos folclóricos y por el mantenimiento de la tonalidad. El período nacionalista subjetivo, por su parte, está marcado, por un lado, por un mayor sin...

  16. The place of the unknown in the Medical Humanities.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lambrichs, Louise L; Marazia, Chantal; Montiel, Luis

    2012-12-31

    In the birth and development of the Medical Humanities, literature has played a crucial role, both as an educational resource and as an analytical device. This article proposes an appraisal of this approach by focussing on a model literary situation. Taking the move from Alberto Barrera Tyszka's novel La enfermedad [The illness], the authors identify and explore some of the "places of ignorance" that can emerge in the doctor-patient relationship, as potentially in any form of intersubjective encounter. The analysis aims at highlighting the constructive potential of such spaces of not knowing as a positive element to deal with, rather than a mere limitation of our power of intervention.

  10. Damp Moon Rising

    Taylor, G. J.

    2010-07-01

    The discovery in 2008 by Alberto Saal (Brown University) and colleagues that lunar volcanic glasses contain water surprised lunar scientists: the Moon could no longer be viewed as being practically waterless. Francis McCubbin (Carnegie Institute of Washington) and coworkers there, at the Stony Brook University (New York), and Okayama University in Japan have confirmed the presence of water in the lunar interior and show that it is present in other types of igneous rocks, not just in those forming glassy volcanic deposits. McCubbin and colleagues measured the concentrations of fluorine, chlorine, and hydroxyl ion (OH-) in apatite (calcium phosphate) crystals in a lunar mare basalt sample and an igneous rock from the highlands. They found abundant water in the apatite crystals (hundreds to thousands of parts per million), which translates to at least 0.6 to 5 parts per million of H2O in the lunar interior. While less than that estimated by Alberto Saal and coworkers from volcanic glasses (tens of parts per million), it is still vastly larger than the next-to-nothing (less than one part per billion) of previous estimates. The higher water content has implications for the origin of the Moon and may shed light on how the inner planets acquired their water.

Se detiene en un análisis exhaustivo del filme Tierras Magallánicas, del salesiano Alberto de Agostini, dialogando con otras producciones de similar periodo.The films made by European explorers, in the silent film era, are built on a Eurocentric logic when it comes to Latin America. They reproduce the relationships of power identifying, on the one hand, certain features of colonialism that emphasize modernity and progress, and, on the other hand, highlighting the characteristic exoticism, disability and the precariousness of the local indigenous cultures. The following article will review a number of films by European explorers on America from the early twentieth century, as a support to this perspective. It will conclude with a comprehensive analysis of the film Tierras Magallánicas, from the Salesian Alberto de Agostini, interwoven with other film productions from a similar period of time.

Visando colaborar para maior compreensão sobre o estabelecimento dessa relação, os objetivos do presente trabalho foram comparar os padrões fenológicos de frutificação e caracterizar a assembleia de aves visitantes de duas palmeiras, a nativa Euterpe edulis e a exótica Phoenix roebelenii no Parque Estadual Alberto Löfgren. Phoenix roebelenii é originária do sudeste da Ásia, frequentemente utilizada no paisagismo urbano, e apresenta-se disseminada no sub-bosque florestal do Parque Estadual Alberto Löfgren. Contudo, ela não é considerada uma espécie invasora em território brasileiro. Os padrões fenológicos de 30 indivíduos adultos de cada espécie de palmeira foram acompanhados mensalmente entre abril de 2012 e março de 2014. A caracterização das assembleias de aves visitantes foi obtida por meio de observação focal. As palmeiras diferiram em seus padrões fenológicos apresentando sobreposição parcial na fenofase frutos maduros, mas não em seus picos de frutificação. Considerando-se apenas os dispersores em potencial de ambas as espécies, observou-se que aves distintas foram responsáveis pelas maiores taxas de consumo de frutos obtidas para cada uma das palmeiras. Os dados do presente trabalho sugerem que a palmeira exótica se tornou importante fonte de alimento para aves nativas nessa unidade de conservação, e que em decorrência dessa interação ocorre a dispersão de sementes, a qual provavelmente contribui para o recrutamento bem-sucedido dessa planta no local, o que justificaria o desenvolvimento de pesquisas sobre o impacto do seu estabelecimento sobre as espécies vegetais nativas. Seed dispersal of exotic plants by native animals is one factor associated with biological invasions.

    2015-01-01

    This article explores the often perplexing experience of being an epilepsy surgery candidate, as portrayed in four book-length accounts: Laura Doermer's Moritz mein Sohn (Moritz my son, 1990), David B.'s L'ascension du haut mal (The ascent of the high evil, 1996; published in English as Epileptic, 2003), Ray Robinson's Electricity (2006), and Alberto Capitta's Il giardino non esiste (The garden doesn't exist, 2009). Building upon critical disability studies and the work of French poststructuralists Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, I analyze issues of embodiment, identity and narrative (re)construction in the postsurgical alleviation of chronic illness. I argue that these texts highlight the inevitable disruption of self that brain surgery entails and ultimately resist biomedical normativization. They also call for a narratological reconsideration of current illness narrative typologies, among which Arthur Frank's "chaos narrative" emerges as the best suited to accommodate the chronic fragmentation of consciousness and voice in epilepsy.

  5. Peru action simmering despite privatization delays

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    After months of delays, the sale of Petroleos del Peru SA (Petroperu) was postponed earlier this year until after the elections, which saw Peru's incumbent President Alberto Fujimori reelected. In June, Fujimori appointed Amado Yataco Minister of Energy and Mines. Yataco, also serving as president of the privatization commission Copri, said a decision on the sale of Petroperu would be made quickly, perhaps by July 28, ahead of this report's presstime. The uncertain status of Petroperu has not, however, slowed activity in Peru's petroleum sector. The paper first discusses privatization plans and Petroperu's budget, then describes exploration and development activities in the supergiant Camisea gas/condensate fields in the central southern jungle. Activities in several smaller fields are briefly described

The debates pro and against the novels and the ficcionalization of forewords will be analyzed as signs of a cultural polemic of rise of the novel in modernity. Three Brazilian authors – Machado de Assis, Clarice Lispector and Alberto Mussa – will be analyzed as heirs of these debates, under the aspect of a complex play between paratexts and main narratives, and between admited projects and the auto-constitution of the public image by the author, in a contemporary time of intense midiatic presence. The heritage shows a (theoretical continuity between the moment of the rise of novels and the ulteriors deployements of a modernity that has maintained the importance of the novel as genre.

  11. The marine environment monitoring in Saco Piraquara de Fora after the beginning of the Angra 2 nuclear power plant operation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The goal of this paper is to evaluate the environmental monitoring around the Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Station after the beginning the operation of Unit II, in July 2000. The Environmental Monitoring Laboratory collects several environmental samples and analyses them radiometrically to determine the presence of artificial radionuclides. In the Environmental Monitoring Laboratory, the samples are prepared and analysed following international procedures and the activities of the detectable radionuclides are obtained by gamma spectrometry. The Environmental Monitoring Laboratory analyses tritium in sea water as well. This paper will describe only the monitoring of the marine samples and the results of the measurements are compared with those obtained in pre-operational time of Angra 1 (1978 - 1982), Angra 2 (1996 - 2000) and those obtained in operational time of the units until 2008. The results show that, since 1982 until now, there is no impact on marine environment caused by the operation of Angra 1 and Angra 2. (author)

    2005-01-01

    This bibliography attempts to give a comprehensive overview of all the literature related to what is known as the Ashtekar-Sen connection and the Rovelli-Smolin loop variables, from which the program currently known as Loop Quantum Gravity emerged. The original version was compiled by Peter Huebner in 1989, and it has been subsequently updated by Gabriela Gonzalez, Bernd Bruegmann, Monica Pierri, Troy Schilling, Christopher Beetle, Alejandro Corichi and Alberto Hauser. The criteria for inclusion in this list are the following: A paper in the classical theory is included if it deals with connection variables for gravity. If the paper is in the quantum domain, it is included when it is related directly with gravity using connection/loop variables, with mathematical aspects of connections, or when it introduces techniques that might be useful for the construction of the (loop) quantum theory of gravity. Information about additional literature, new preprints, and especially corrections are always welcome.

  19. Synthesis of a new technetium radiotracer containing para-toluidine by tridentate chelation (N,N,O)

    Neuro degenerative diseases (Alzheimer, Parkinson, Creutzfeld-Jacob. and others) have an increasingly important impact as well on the economic plan as social. The diagnosis procedure and current therapies remain expensive and the assumption of responsibility of the patient is seldom assured. These last years, the development of new radiopharmaceuticals with aiming diagnosis procedure started again the interest for the search for new molecules. The asset of the synthesis of our technetium radiotracer, a tridentate chelate complex (N, N, O) resides in the facility of its obtaining; marking with the kit Alberto is done at a temperature about 90 degree approximately and this could consequently facilitate its implementation in the units of radiodiagnosis. Of lipophilic nature, neutral and of suitable molecular weight, the main challenge for this molecule would be to check its capacity to cross the blood-brain barrier by studying its cerebral extraction.

  5. Foreign oil companies weathering Peru's political crisis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper reports that foreign oil companies are weathering Peru's political crisis, and the outlook for increased foreign participation in Peru's petroleum sector remains promising. There has been improvement in the political turmoil and soured international relations that followed President Alberto Fujimori's Apr. 5 suspension of Peru's Congress, charging political corruption and attempts to block his fiscal reforms. But there are fresh concerns over an increase in terrorism aimed at oil industry facilities by antigovernment guerrilla groups in Peru. Meanwhile, state-owned oil company Petroleos del Peru (Petroperu) continues efforts to sell assets as part of Fujimori's mandated privatization program. And foreign companies continue to grapple with uncertainty and bureaucratic red tape in chasing investment opportunities in Peru's beleaguered but opening petroleum sector

Alberto Hurtado con su mirada de apóstol miró a Chile desde la mirada de Jesús y remeció conciencias e incomodó a muchos con su denuncia de los males que corroían el alma nacional: miseria, injusticias, vicios, salarios miserables, falta de educación del pueblo, viviendas indignas, y junto con esto, la lejanía de los pobres de la Iglesia y la escasez de sacerdotes. Para él había una tarea pendiente que muchos esquivaban: conquistar Chile para Cristo. El libro y la invitación fueron acogidos con gran entusiasmo, por los jóvenes especialmente; pero las cr��ticas arreciaron de parte del clero y laicado conservadores. Para ellos, la visión de Hurtado era peligrosamente amarga y desconocía la labor que la Iglesia, desde la Colonia, hacía en el país formando el "alma de Chile".

  9. Persistency of atmospheric diffusion conditions in Angra dos Reis - Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Based on a 2 year observation period, the diffusion conditions at the Almirante Alvaro Alberto N.P.P. site, in Angra dos Reis, are analized with respect to persistency as a function of the wind direction, the Pasquill stability class and the time of the day. The Pasquill stability class relates to the bulk vertical temperature gradient measured between 2m and 50m in the atmosphere; the wind direction is measured at 50m height. The persistency is defined in this report as the probability that the wind direction will remain longer than a given time in a sector without change in the diffusion category by more than a certain stage. During the day the persistency is mostly affected by the sea breeze with predominance of the unstable and neutral categories. At night the stable categories dominate. The alternating sea and land breezes disturb daily the trade wind field resulting in low persistency of the diffusion conditions. (Author)

    This paper reports that Peru's government is stepping up efforts to attract more foreign investment in its oil and gas sector. Since taking over in July 1990, the government of President Alberto Fujimori has taken a number of steps to privatize the oil sector, improve the fiscal regime for oil investment, and streamline regulations on oil and gas investment. In the most dramatic step, the Fujimori administration ended state oil company Petroleos del Peru's monopoly on downstream operations as well as imports and exports of oil and gas as part of sweeping new oil and gas legislation. In addition, officials of the Fujimori administration have been traveling to key oil centers around the world with a presentation on Peru's hydrocarbon potential, trying to spark interest in E and D investment there

  20. A digital simulation of a pressurizer in a PWR nuclear power plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A model for pressurizer digital simulation of a PWR nuclear power plant during transients, considering all pressurizer control features, is presented. The pressurizer is divided into two regions separated by a water-vapor interface and non-equilibrium conditions are considered. The particular thermodynamic process followed during insurge and outsurges is determined at each instant of analysis without any previous assumption. The pressure behavior is defined by an explicit equation in any of four possible pressurizer thermodynamic conditions. Thermodynamic properties of steam and water are computed by ASME subroutines and the mathematical formulation presented in this study was programed in FORTRAN IV for a Burroughs-6700 digital computer system. This program was employed to simulate the Shippingport Atomic Power Station and Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant - Unit 1 pressurizers. The test results compared with experimental or vendor data show the validity of this analysis method. (Author)

    Full Text Available Laboratory tests were used to evaluate the effect on the mechanical properties of a hot asphalt mix (MDC-2 as per INVIAS, 2007 specifications due to the addition by wet way of a natural asphaltite from the San Alberto Mine (Santander, Colombia. The strength under monotonic load, resilient modulus and rutting were evaluated. Two asphalt cements (CA were used, CA 80-100 from the Barrancabermeja refinery (Colombia and CA 60-70 from Apiay (Colombia. The results show that the mechanical properties evaluated were higher for the MDC2 mixes modified with asphaltite compared with mixtures with asphalts without additives. Additionally penetration tests at different temperatures and softening points were conducted on asphalt cementswith and without additive. The asphaltite produces higher penetration resistance and lower thermal flow susceptibility.

  5. Analysis of reactivity insertion accidents in PWR reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A calculation model to analyze reactivity insertion accidents in a PWR reactor was developed. To analyze the nuclear power transient, the AIREK-III code was used, which simulates the conventional point-kinetic equations with six groups of delayed neutron precursors. Some modifications were made to generalize and to adapt the program to solve the proposed problems. A transient thermal analysis model was developed which simulates the heat transfer process in a cross section of a UO2 fuel rod with Zircalloy clad, a gap fullfilled with Helium gas and the correspondent coolant channel, using as input the nulcear power transient calculated by AIREK-III. The behavior of ANGRA-i reactor was analized during two types of accidents: - uncontrolled rod withdrawal from subcritical condition; - uncontrolled rod withdrawal at power. The results and conclusions obtained will be used in the license process of the Unit 1 of the Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto. (Author)

    In this paper we discuss opinion dynamics in the Opinion Changing Rate (OCR) model, recently proposed (A.Pluchino, V.Latora and A.Rapisarda Int. J. Mod. Phys. C, 16, No.4, 515-531 (2005)). The OCR model allows to study whether and how a group of social agents, with a different intrinsic tendency rate to change opinion, finds agreement. In particular, we implement the OCR model on a small graph describing the topology of a real social system. The nodes of the graph are scientists partecipating to the Tepoztlan conference, celebrating Alberto Robledo's 60th birthday, and the links are based on coauthorship in scientific papers. We study how opinions evolve in time according to the frequency rates of the nodes, to the coupling term, and also to the presence of group structures.

  9. Off-site emergency response plans in case of technological catastrophes: the case Angra dos Reis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the first part of the thesis a discussion of the technical, operational and methodological features of the current practices for emergency planning in case of a nuclear fallout. Based on this general reference is possible to evaluate the features in the natural and social environment of Angra dos Reis that probably will obstruct the application of the protective countermeasures to the public. These critical points are enhanced to permit the discussion of a methodological approach that is supposed to be suitable to the reality of Angra dos Reis. The approach was developed specifically to this region and was introduced as a part of the general emergency off-site plan to the Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto (CNAAA). Starting from this experience will be possible to enlarge this approach in a further research, in order to study this potential hazards of other industrial plants. (author)

Los casos son utilizados como ejemplos similares, y las experiencias de Carlos Menem, Alberto Fujimori y Ernesto Samper son invocadas como fuentes de contraste. La evidencia sugiere que todo presidente corre el riesgo de ser depuesto por el Congreso cuando tres factores se conjugan en su contra: a el escándalo político erosiona su autoridad; b la opinión pública se moviliza en su contra —usualmente como resultado de una economía en crisis— y c el Ejecutivo carece de recursos para controlar al Congreso. Tras estas condiciones normalmente se esconde un marcado aislamiento político del presidente y una fuerte oposición de las elites a su estilo de gobierno.ABSTRACT: This paper compares the political crises leading tu the demise of the administrations of Fernando Collor in Brazil (1992, Carlos Andrés Pérez in Venezuela (1993, Abdalá Bucaram in Ecuador (1997 and Raul Cubas Grau in Paraguay (1999. Those cases are compared in terms of their similarities, and the administrations of Carlos Menem, Alberto Fujimori and Ernesto Samper are invoked as a source of differences. The evidence suggests that presidents are likely to be impeached whenever three factors act in conjunction: a political scandal erodes presidential authority; b public opinion is mobilized against the president —typically as the result of an economy in crisis; and c the chief executive lacks resources to control congress. Underlying these forces, there is usually a marked isolation of the president and strong elite opposition to his or her style of government.

El régimen fujimorista se prolongo por medio de dos reelecciones, la primera en 1995, la segunda en abril del 2000, en las cuales predominaron la corrupción, el fraude y el terrorismo de Estado. Durante este régimen los peruanos fueron desposeídos de sus empresas, despojados de sus derechos sociales y garantías civiles, y víctimas de un genocidio que según la Comisión de la Verdad y la Reconciliación causo la muerte de setenta mil personas._____________________ABSTRACT:Alberto Fujimori’s Government applied the neoliberalism deeply during 1990-2001. This has as consequence the dismantlement of constitutional order, which allowed setting up a dictatorship supported by Peruvian military forces. Fujimori’s regime was prolonged by means of two re-elections. The first re-election was carried out in 1995 and the second one in April, 2000. In both them corruption, fraud and State terrorism were predominant events. During this regime, Peruvians were dispossessed of their companies, social rights and civil guarantees; moreover, they were the genocide victims of which the Truth and Reconciliation Commission reported that seventy thousand people were killed.

Its incidence is still growing in females and in smokers. Surgery remains the treatment of choice whenever feasible, but unfortunately, many patients have an advanced LC at presentation and one-third of potentially operable patients do not receive a tumor resection because of their low compliance for intervention due to their compromised cardiopulmonary functions and other comorbidities. For these patients the alternative therapeutic options are stereotactic radiotherapy or percutaneous radiofrequency. When surgery is planned, an anatomical resection (segmentectomy, lobectomy, bilobectomy, pneumonectomy, sleeve lobectomy is usually performed; wedge resection (considered as a nonanatomical one is generally the accepted option for unfit patients. The recent increase in discovering small and peripheral LCs and/or ground-glass opacities with screening programs has dramatically increased surgeons' interest in limited resections. The role of these resections is discussed. Also, recent improvements in molecular biology techniques have increased the chemotherapic options for neoadjuvant LC treatment. The role and the importance of targeted chemotherapy is also discussed.Keywords: lung cancer, adenocarcinoma, surgery, radiofrequency, radiotherapy, chemotherapy

    Full Text Available To Romantic Criticism, Rojas Zorrilla’s fame becomed obscure by the figure of his contemporary, friend and collaborator, Pedro Calderón de la Barca. This logical situation is clearly evident in the great german critics: Rojas Zorrilla is scarcely mentioned by the Schlegel brothers. To other historians he occupied a secondary place and the only exception was Johann Ludwig Tieck, who exalted his works even above Calderón masterpieces. It can be affirmed that Rojas Zorrilla reception was irregular. If we examine Musso Valiente’s library, Agustín Durán’s Discurso, and the romantic period editions, we will find some interest in his figure and that it was situated in a secondary place in relation to our great theater. It seems clear that Martínez de la Rosa and Alberto Lista were the critics who pay more attention to him. Martínez de la Rosa established an approach based in the neoclassic topics about our writer, meanwhile Alberto Lista developed a closer and original reading, specially centered in the poet’s tragic dimension and elements that, from his point of view, anticipated romantic Aesthetics. Rojas Zorrilla inclusion in romantic Literary Histories, and his edition in the «Biblioteca de Autores Españoles», prepared by Mesonero Romanos, make him enter the canon among the «six great stars» in Spanish Golden Age Theater.Para la crítica romántica, la fama de Rojas Zorrilla quedó oscurecida, de forma perfectamente lógica, por la de su coetáneo, amigo y colaborador don Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Esta situación es muy patente en los grandes críticos alemanes. Los hermanos Schlegel apenas citan a nuestro dramaturgo. Otros historiadores le conceden un lugar secundario, con la excepción de Johann Ludwig Tieck, que lo exaltó incluso por encima del autor de La vida es sueño. La recepción de su obra en España fue irregular. Del análisis de la biblioteca y escritos de Musso Valiente, del discurso de Agustín Durán, de las

Se mantiene que la crisis de los partidos políticos así como la crisis de otras instituciones relevantes del Estado, el sistema presidencialista y las leyes electorales, unido a la crisis económica por la que atravesaba el país influyeron directamente en el ascenso. Su mantenimiento en el poder fue favorecido por los éxitos relativos que el Gobierno consiguió en el campo de la economía y la lucha contra el terrorismo. Sin embargo, el ansia de Fujimori por perpetuarse en el poder, la aparición a la luz pública de casos de corrupción a gran escala y el empeoramiento de la situación económica llevó al régimen a su fin.ABSTRACT: This work seeks to identify the main variables which affected the rise, the maintenance and the fall of Alberto Fujimori, the most successful antipolitical leader in Latin America, whose aims delineated the course of the decade of the 1990s in Peru. The paper argues that his rise to power was directly influenced by the crisis of the party system and the crisis of other relevant institutions of the State, the presidential regime and electoral laws, joined with the economic crisis that the country was experiencing. Hís ability to remain in power was facilitated by the relative success of his government in the economic realm and in the fight against terrorism. However, his own desire to perpetuate himself in power, the unraveling of high-level corruption scandals and the worsening of economic conditions finally lead the regime to its end.

However, since its first use, antibiotic therapy has been associated with the emergence of resistance to drugs. The incorrect use of anti-TB drugs, either due to prescription errors, low patient compliance, or poor quality of drugs, led to the widespread emergence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains with an expanding spectrum of resistance. The spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR strains (ie, strains resistant to both isoniazid and rifampicin has represented a major threat to TB control since the 1990s. In 2006, the first cases of MDR strains with further resistance to fluoroquinolone and injectable drugs were described and named extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB. The emergence of XDR-TB strains is a result of mismanagement of MDR cases, and treatment relies on drugs that are less potent and more toxic than those used to treat drug-susceptible or MDR strains. Furthermore, treatment success is lower and mortality higher than achieved in MDR-TB cases, and the number of drugs necessary in the intensive phase of treatment may be higher than the four drugs recommended for MDR-TB. Linezolid may represent a valuable drug to treat cases of XDR-TB. Delamanid, bedaquiline, and PA-824 are new anti-TB agents in the development pipeline that have the potential to enhance the cure rate of XDR-TB. The best measures to prevent new cases of XDR-TB are the correct management of MDR-TB patients, early detection, and proper treatment of existing patients with XDR

    In 1901, the first Epidural anesthesia via a caudal approach was independently described by two FrenchmanJean-Anthanase Sicard and Fernand Cathelin.. The Spanish military surgeon, Fidel Pagés Miravé, completed the lumbar approach successfully in 1921. The two possibilities for identification of the epidural space the "loss of resistance" technique and the technique of the "hanging drop" were developed by Achille Mario Dogliotti, an Italian, and Alberto Gutierrez, an Argentinean physician, at the same time. In 1956 John J. Bonica published the paramedian approach to the epidural space. As early as 1931 Eugene Aburel, a Romanian obstetrician, injected local anaesthetics via a silk catheter to perform lumbar obstetric Epidural analgesia. In 1949 the first successful continuous lumbar Epidural anaesthesia was reported by Manuel Martinez Curbelo, a Cuban. Epidural anaesthesia can be performed in sitting or lateral position in all segments of the spinal column via the median or paramedian approach. Different off-axis angles pose the challenge in learning the technique. PMID:26230893

    Full Text Available En 1968-1969, Pasolini tourne en Afrique un Carnet de notes pour une Orestie africaine, dans cette « forme nouvelle » que sont les Appunti pasoliniens. Work in progress à forte dimension méta-cinématographique, le Carnet de notes fait travailler ensemble la fiction et le documentaire : le mythe raconté par Eschyle s’ouvre à une démarche archéologique et ethnologique, que motive une urgente quête des survivances. Pasolini met ainsi en œuvre une véritable poétique du déplacement, qui, à partir du déplacement géographique et, par la pratique de l’analogie, conduit à la réalisation d’une œuvre « déplacée », intempestive, qui vise à déplacer le spectateur. « Poète civil », comme le définissait Alberto Moravia, Pasolini fait du poétique le lieu du politique.

    Full Text Available Alberto Goldman,1 Uwe Wollina2 1Clinica Goldman, Porto Alegre RS, Brazil; 2Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Academic Teaching Hospital Dresden-Friedrichstadt, Dresden, Germany Abstract: Permanent makeup is a cosmetic tattoo that is used to enhance one’s appearance, and which has become more popular among middle-aged and elderly women. A couple of benefits seem to be associated with permanent tattoos in the elderly: saving time (wake up with makeup; poor eyesight (difficult to apply makeup; and saving money. On the other hand, cosmetic tattoos bear the same risks as other tattoo procedures. We report on fading and unintended hyperpigmentation after tattooing on eyebrows and eyelids, and discuss the scientific and anatomical background behind the possible cause. Dermatochalasis may be a possible risk factor for excessive unwanted discolorations. Q-switched neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet laser is an appropriate and safe therapeutic tool that can manage such adverse effects. Consumer protection warrants better information and education of the risks of cosmetic tattoos – in particular, for elderly women. Keywords: permanent makeup, cosmetic tattoos, adverse effects, dermatochalasis, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser

    Full Text Available In this article, we investigate the strategies used by the director of a newspaper to constitute a transcendental cultural project in the journalism of Northern Argentina. The case studied is that of the literary section of the newspaper La Gaceta, from Tucumán, which is considered of primary importance for the development of the written press of the region during the 20th century. Our research does theoretically and methodologically form part of the sociology of culture. We follow, on the one hand, Pierre Bourdieu’s postulates on the intellectual field and the creator project for the description of the literary page of the above mentioned newspaper as a two-dimensional project: individual and collective at the same time. On the other hand, we coincide with Raymond Williams’ conceptualizations on the organization of culture. We also consider the case we study as part of cultural journalism, focusing on some theoretical matters and analyzing the configuration of such section from the perspective of its director, Daniel Alberto Dessein.

    We have used the Atomistix Tool Kit(ATK) and TranSIESTA[1] packages to investigate adsorption of iron atoms on a graphene sheet. The technique of both codes is based on density functional theory using local basis sets[2], and non-equilibrium Green's functions (NEGF) to calculate the charge distribution under external bias. Spin dependent electronic structure calculations are performed for different iron coverages. These reveal adsorption site dependent charge transfer from iron to graphene leading to screening effects. Transport calculations show spin dependent scattering of the transmission which is analysed obtaining the transmission eigenchannels for each spin type. The phenomena of electromigration of iron in these systems at finite bias will be discussed, estimating the so-called wind force from the reflection[3]. [1] M. Brandbyge, J.-L. Mozos, P. Ordejon, J.

    The roads that separate writers often end with a paradox, happy proximity. The nominations for the Nobel Prize for literature in 1979 came together, as in a real literary constellation, Italo Calvino, Alberto Moravia, Giorgio Bassani, Vittorio Sereni, Leonardo Sciascia and Mario Luzi, along with the argentine Jorge Luis Borges. The list reflects the richness and variety of Italian literature of the time. But beyond the storytellers, the coincidence of Luzi and Borges (and we might add, that of Odisseas Elytis, who was finally awarded the prize is a unique convergence of poets, with very different poetics, but with intense communicating vessels that unite them, often invisible and contradictory manner. While Borges never wrote about Luzi, the italian, however, did, and quite often, on the argentine, not only from the pages of literary criticism in «Il Corriere della Sera», space occupied until 1974 commenting Latin American literature (he has written about Roberto Arlt, Vargas Llosa and Juan Rulfo, among other writers, but in different interviews, where the frequent quotations that Luzi makes about Borges often installed a space for discussion and profound differences not only on the nature of poetry, but on the same link with the world and life. We propose to study these reflections that Mario Luzi made from (and on many occasions, against about the Argentine author, from the critical work of the Florentine poet, on the centenary of his birth.

    Full Text Available A grande obra de Aristóteles sobre psicologia foi o De anima. Entretanto, nem por isso a obra Parva naturalia, também conhecida como De sensu et sensato, deixou de exercer um papel importante, entre os árabes e os pensadores ocidentais. No presente ensaio, procura-se mostrar como a tradução árabe desta última obra foi utilizada por Avicena, Ibn Bâjjia e, sob a influência deste último, por Averróis. No epítome De sensu de Averróis, percebe-se, por exemplo, que os principios teóricos são aristotélicos, mas estão contaminados pelo termo "espiritual", que não é utilizado pelo filósofo grego.

    Among the planning activities of actuation in nuclear/radiological emergences, it is included the efficiency evaluation of protection and remediation measurements. From the development of a data base on such measurements for the agricultural areas, the program SIEM was used for effectuation the simulations involving the 137Cs, 131I and 90Sr radionuclides, in scenery previously established for simulation those areas of a 50 km surrounding the Admiral Alvaro Alberto nuclear power plant. The obtained results indicate that the scenery is determinant of efficiency measurements involving various specific factors of each place, such as: agricultural and cattle breeding products, consumption habits of population and the grade of subsistence by the diet items, making not practical the elaboration of predefined generic sceneries. The great dependence on seasoning related to the moment of accident makes inadequate any previous evaluation what soever for evaluation of efficiency of protection and remediation measurements. Therefore, previous decisions are not recommended about the relevance of protection measurements for rural areas. Two classification criteria were defined: (i) the efficiency in reduction the doses in the firs year; and, (i i) efficiency in reduction the dose at long term

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC is a particularly aggressive cancer, the optimum management of which is still being determined. In the metastatic disease, the standard therapy is a platinum-based combination chemotherapy; however, in spite of available treatment options for patients who progress beyond first-line therapy, prognosis remains poor. Angiogenesis is a tightly regulated process which comprises a complex, complementary, and overlapping network. Inhibition of tumor-related angiogenesis has become an attractive target for anticancer therapy. Antiangiogenic strategy includes: monoclonal antibodies against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF and VEGF receptor (VEGFR, small molecule inhibitors of VEGF tyrosine kinase activity, VEGF Trap, and a new class named “vascular disrupting agents,” tested in ongoing clinical trials which will further define their role in the management of NSCLC. BIBF 1120 is an investigational orally administered receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has shown antiangiogenic and antineoplastic activity, inhibiting VEGFR, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and fibroblast growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases, preventing tumor growth and interfering with the angiogenesis-signaling cascade and overcoming drug resistances.Keywords: NSCLC, angiogenesis, oral antiangiogenic agents, VEGF, PDGF, FGF

Randomized double-blind clinical trials have shown that fingolimod significantly reduces relapse rate and ameliorates a number of brain MRI measures, including cerebral atrophy, compared to both placebo and intramuscular interferon-1a. The effect on disability progression remains controversial, since one Phase III trial showed a significant benefit of treatment while two others did not. Although fingolimod has a very convenient daily oral dosing, the possibility of serious cardiac, ocular, infectious, and other rare adverse events justified the decision of the European Medicines Agency to approve the drug as a second-line treatment for MS patients not responsive to first-line therapy, or those with rapidly evolving course. In the United States, fingolimod is instead authorized as a first-line treatment. The aim of this review is to describe and discuss the characteristics of fingolimod concerning its efficacy, safety, and tolerability in the clinical context of multiple sclerosis management.

Las cosas habían cambiado mucho, políticamente hablando, en apenas unos años. Poco o nada quedaba del apasionamiento, el amor y la fascinación que Rojas había logrado generar. La matanza de los estudiantes, la supuesta masacre de la plaza de toros, el interés por perpetuarse en el poder y otros actos de corte dictatorial, lo habían desprestigiado hasta tumbarlo.

    In the history of nuclear power plants operation safety is an important factor to be considered and for this, the use of resistant materials and the application of redundant systems are used to make a plant with high reliability. Through the acquisition of experience with time and accidents that happened in the area, it was observed that the importance of creating methods that simplify the operator work in making decisions in accidents scenarios is an important factor in ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants. This work aims to create a program made with the Python language, which with the use of an expert systems be able to apply, in real time, the rules contained in the Limiting Conditions for Operation (LCO) and tell to the operator the occurrence of any limiting conditions and the occurrence of failure to perform the require actions in the time to completion. The generic structure used to represent the knowledge of the expert system was a fault tree where the events of this tree are objects in program. To test the accuracy of the program a simplified model of a fault tree was used that represents the LCO of the nuclear power station named Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto 1. With the results obtained in the analysis of the simplified model it was observed a significant reduction in the time to identify the LCO, showing that the implementation of this program to more complex models of fault tree would be viable.(author)

Aqueous extracts of leaves promoted efficient green synthesis of AgNPs compared to fruits and root extracts of W. somnifera. Biosynthesized AgNPs were characterized for their size and shape by physical-chemical techniques such as UV-visible spectroscopy, laser Doppler anemometry, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy. After confirming the antimicrobial potential of AgNPs, they were incorporated into a cream. Cream formulations of AgNPs and AgNO3 were prepared and compared for their antimicrobial activity against human pathogens (Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Escherichia coli, and Candida albicans and a plant pathogen (Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Our results show that AgNP creams possess significantly higher antimicrobial activity against the tested organisms.Keywords: Withania somnifera, green synthesis, silver nanoparticles cream, antimicrobial activity

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

  12. Environmental sceneries in NPP: use of the geographical information system for integration of the local meteorology with other environmental factors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto is located in an extreme complex region, in terms of meteorological topographical and geographical aspects. Several environmental studies have been carried out since the construction of the unit I. The main scope of this thesis is the intersection of the existing relevant information to evaluate in detail the environmental impact of this particular installation. To reach this objective some meteorological scenarios were established, based on statistics analysis from data collected by installation's meteorological system and from data obtained in local atmospherics experiments. These summaries were submitted to a specific computer code to calculate the dispersion factors considering typical annual releases of the Xe-133 and I-131 from unit I. These factors describe the capacity of the local atmosphere to transport and to dilute a contaminant up to a distance of 15 Km far the from the realizing point. Finally, a Geographic Information System has been used to integrate all the relevant information including population and land covers to produce a series of output maps; where the degree of impact under the various scenarios, are identified by wind sector and respective distance from the realizing point. Conclusions and recommendations are mainly presented in terms of emergency planning. (author)

  14. Brazilian nuclear power plants decommissioning plan for a multiple reactor site

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Actually, Brazil has two operating Nuclear Power Plants and a third one under construction, all at Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto - CNAAA. To comply with regulatory aspects the power plants operator, Eletronuclear, must present to Brazilian Nuclear Regulatory Agency, CNEN, a decommissioning plan. Brazilian experience with decommissioning is limited because none of any nuclear reactor at the country was decommissioned. In literature, decommissioning process is well described despite few nuclear power reactors have been decommissioned around the world. Some different approach is desirable for multiple reactors sites, case of CNAAA site. During the decommissioning, a great amount of wastes will be produced and have to be properly managed. Particularly, the construction of Auxiliary Services on the site could be a good choice due to the possibility of reducing costs. The present work intends to present to the Eletronuclear some aspects of the decommissioning concept and decommissioning management, storage and disposal de wastes, based on the available literature, regulatory standards of CNEN and international experience as well as to suggest some solutions to be implemented at CNAAA site before starts the decommissioning project in order to maximize the benefits.

The changes in the lubricating properties of synovial fluid lead to significant pain and loss of function. More than ten years have passed from the first studies. Up till now many authors have supported intra-articular hyaluronan (HA therapy as not only a symptom-modifying therapy but also a treatment which may significantly decrease the rate of deterioration of joint structure. In this review we report data relative to knee and hip treatment. The ongoing studies continue to further our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that likely underlie the therapeutic benefits of this treatment but, despite recent progress, many unresolved issues require further study. Large scale double blind controlled studies must be carried out to confirm these promising data and produce meaningful guidelines.Keywords: osteoarthritis, hyaluronan, intra-articular injections, ultrasound-guided, viscosupplementation

  17. Orphism as a scientific paradigm

    Biernat Przemyslaw

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available In my essay I would like to examine current interpretative paradigm, which western scholarship cast on heterogenous and ambiguous data first to create and then to modify the notion of ‘orphism’. In case of paradigms preceding the actual one, the role which ‘orphism’ played in contemporary theories and controversies centered around the question of its significance for emergence of Christianity is well known. That is why in my work I would like to focus on deconstruction of interpretative consensus, elaborated in recent years, which is to be found in such works as Martin West’s The Orphic Poems (1983, Ritual Texts for the Afterlife. Orpheus and the Bacchic Gold Tablets by Fritz Graf and Sarah Iles-Johnston (2007 or monumental Orfeo y la tradición órfica. Un reencuentro (2008 edited by Alberto Bernabé. What is significant, inasmuch as we can write the history of Athenian religion or the history of Hellenistic kings’ worship, we still cannot write the history of orphism. In formulation of all these scholars it is an ahistorical phenomenon, a hidden constant in the sphere of Greek religion, never expressed directly and entirely, but always alluded to y ancient authors. I find difficult to agree with such a statement. The aim of my inquiry is to reveal assumptions of current paradigm, which are hidden in it, but leave a distinct impression on data.

    Full Text Available (English In this article I aim to explore conflicts among the variety of political projects in the lesbian and gay movement.I base the article on Alberto Mira’s (2004 proposed models for the expression of homosexuality: decadentist, homophile and camp. I discuss the main theoretical and political debates that arise from these models. Firstly, I ask whether life on the margins of mainstream social rules allows gays and lesbians to live a freer existence or merely means internalised homophobia (using Jean Genet’s and Michel Foucault’s approaches as examples. Secondly, I question whether the demand for “normality” entails the creation of new exclusions (following Judith Butler’s approach to normality: Finally, I consider whether camp culture reproduces and/or subverts gender rules (introducing a discussion between Sheila Jeffreys and Judith Butler’s positions. On the basis of this exploration of Mira's three cultural models, I develop a typology of political positions ('normalization of homosexuality', 'transformation' and 'queer', which I apply to the case study of the Catalan lesbian and gay movement.

  20. Analysis of the loss of coolant accident due to the faiture in the open position of two pressurizer relief valves, for Angra-1 nuclear power plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A study of the modeling techniques adequate for simulating the loss of coolant accident caused by stuck open pressurizer relief valves, using the RELAP4-MOD5 code, is performed and the model developed is applied to the analysis of this kind of accident for the Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto Unit (Angra 1). The thermal hydraulic behavior of the reactor cooling system, when subjected to a loss of main feedwater followed by the failure in the open position of two pressurizer relief valves, is determined. The relief valves are assumed to fail in the totally open position, delivering the maximum massflow through the discharge line. The RELAP4-MOD5 code is shown to be adequate for this kind of analysis, and the detailed prediction of the thermal hydraulic behavior of the Reactor Coolant System is thus possible. The eficiency of the emergency core cooling system of Angra 1 is demonstrated, the fuel elements remaining covered by the coolant during all the accident, and the peak clad temperatures are kept within design limites, ensuring the integrity of the core.

Lejos de proponer una lectura liberal y antimarxista de la historia, como esgrimen en su contra los críticos de la novela, se puede afirmar que en Agosto Rubem Fonseca da cuenta del continuismo de las políticas getulistas en la política brasilera contemporánea. Desde su punto de vista, pese a las supuestas transformaciones democráticas en el país persiste un Varguismo sin Vargas.

  3. Synthesis and evaluation of Re and 99mTc tricarbonyl complex of levofloxacin as novel infection imaging agents

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The high incidence of infection in daily life has prompted research into better and more accurate diagnostic methods. Of these, non-invasive diagnosis of infection/inflammation with suitable radiopharmaceuticals using nuclear medicine techniques is a major challenge, which allows prompt and successful treatment and reduces the risk of morbidity. The antibiotic so far studies for infection imaging are mostly belong to quinolones series, and they were mostly radio labelled with Tc(V) oxo core, which results some limitations in the distinction of infective foci from sterile inflammation. The advent of a novel core of technetium, fac-(99mTc(CO)3(H2O)3) precursor by Alberto et al. has given birth to new genera of radiopharmaceuticals. This water-stable organometallic precursor can easily form stable complexes with different di or tri ligands by substitution of the three loosely bound water molecules. This encouraged us to take up the tricarbonyl approach in radiolabeling Levofloxacin with Technetium-99m with the goal of improving the differentiation between bacterial infection and non bacterial inflammation

  6. Application of an expert system for real time diagnosis of the limiting conditions for operation in nuclear power plants

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the history of nuclear power plants operation safety is an important factor to be considered and for this, the use of resistant materials and the application of redundant systems are used to make a plant with high reliability. Through the acquisition of experience with time and accidents that happened in the area, it was observed that the importance of creating methods that simplify the operator work in making decisions in accidents scenarios is an important factor in ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants. This work aims to create a program made with the Python language, which with the use of an expert systems be able to apply, in real time, the rules contained in the Limiting Conditions for Operation (LCO) and tell to the operator the occurrence of any limiting conditions and the occurrence of failure to perform the require actions in the time to completion. The generic structure used to represent the knowledge of the expert system was a fault tree where the events of this tree are objects in program. To test the accuracy of the program a simplified model of a fault tree was used that represents the LCO of the nuclear power station named Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto 1. With the results obtained in the analysis of the simplified model it was observed a significant reduction in the time to identify the LCO, showing that the implementation of this program to more complex models of fault tree would be viable.(author)

An early and accurate diagnosis of this clinical picture is very important for adequate patient management. Case presentation: We report the atypical onset of T-lineage ALL in a 31-year-old man. The patient was admitted to the emergency room due to lung failure; at that moment, the patient's initial blood count was normal; the chest X-ray radiography showed a massive pleural effusion and a thoracentesis was carried out. Routine investigations performed on the pleural fluid using a new technology system and digitalized cell analysis demonstrated infiltration by immature cells. Therefore, bone marrow aspirate and flow cytometry analyses were performed, leading to the diagnosis of T-lineage ALL. A cord blood transplantation procedure was performed at the first hematological remission following chemotherapy regimens. The patient died of septic shock. Conclusion: The case we reported underlines the usefulness of using automated instruments to identify abnormal lymphoid cells in body fluids. Keywords: pleural effusion, digital morphology, leukemia

Patients and methods: Because atazanavir induces an increase of plasma bilirubin levels, in a concentration-dependent manner, we developed a mathematical model, based on increments of atazanavir and bilirubin concentrations at steady state, in HIV infected (HIV+ patients, and plotted the corresponding nomogram for detecting suboptimal atazanavir exposure. Results: By applying the obtained model, the results indicate that an absolute value or an increment of bilirubin at steady state below 3.8 µmol/L, are predictive of suboptimal atazanavir exposure and therapeutic failure. Conclusion: We have successfully implemented a new mathematical approach to pharmacokinetic–pharmacodynamic model for atazanavir–bilirubin interaction. As a result, we found that bilirubin plasma levels constitute a good marker of exposure to atazanavir and of viral suppression.

    Among the planning activities of actuation in nuclear/radiological emergences, it is included the efficiency evaluation of protection and remediation measurements. From the development of a data base on such measurements for the agricultural areas, the program SIEM was used for effectuation the simulations involving the {sup 137}Cs, {sup 131}I and {sup 90}Sr radionuclides, in scenery previously established for simulation those areas of a 50 km surrounding the Admiral Alvaro Alberto nuclear power plant. The obtained results indicate that the scenery is determinant of efficiency measurements involving various specific factors of each place, such as: agricultural and cattle breeding products, consumption habits of population and the grade of subsistence by the diet items, making not practical the elaboration of predefined generic sceneries. The great dependence on seasoning related to the moment of accident makes inadequate any previous evaluation what soever for evaluation of efficiency of protection and remediation measurements. Therefore, previous decisions are not recommended about the relevance of protection measurements for rural areas. Two classification criteria were defined: (i) the efficiency in reduction the doses in the firs year; and, (i i) efficiency in reduction the dose at long term

    Full Text Available his article ponders the tension created in journalism by the emergence of social networks in the processes of the social construction of reality. The focuses are the events kindled by the Indignados movement in Spain in 2012, during the “25S” protests, which called for a new constituent assembly. Waiter Alberto Casillas stole the scene by facing police truculence, and that had a great repercussion in the networks, attracting the attention of international journalism. There are two points of view which, when compared, lead to a possible synthesis about this moment of crisis: 1 the way journalism presents the events; 2 the possibilities and implications offered by the networks to the more ample dynamics of journalism. C. S. Peirce’s concept of semiosis is the basis of the reflective effort, along with a systemic view inspired by the Semiotics of Culture – especially as in Yuri Lotman. It is postulated that in the contemporary semiosphere, in which complex processes of semiosis set off by events from the chaotic reality are unfolded, journalism has to review its practices, under pain of losing the legitimacy it has acquired throughout history as a mediator of a certain kind of knowledge.

    Full Text Available Human cases of American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL have been recorded in Serra da Cantareira, in the Greater São Paulo Metropolitan Region, where two conservation units are situated, the Parque Estadual da Cantareira and the Parque Estadual Alberto Löfgren. The present study aimed to identify the sandfly fauna and some of its ecological aspects in these two parks and their surrounding area to investigate Leishmania sp. vectors. The captures were undertaken monthly from January to December 2009, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., with automatic light traps installed in forests and peridomicile areas and with modified black/white Shannon traps in the peridomicile. A total of 12 species and 5,436 sandflies were captured: with automatic light traps (141, Shannon traps (5,219 and attempting to bite the researchers while they were conducting the collection in Shannon traps (76. Pintomyia fischeri and Migonemyia migonei were the most abundant species. Pi. fischeri predominated in all three kinds of captures (49%, 88.8% and 65.8%, respectively. Mg. migonei was the second most prevalent in Shannon traps (10.0% and attempting to bite the researchers (22.4%. Pi. fischeri females were significantly more attracted to black and those of Mg. migonei to white Shannon traps. A positive and significant correlation was observed between the numbers of Pi. fischeri and the mean of minimum relative humidity values on the fifteen days prior to capture, while there was a negative and significant correlation between the relative humidity on the capture day and the two most abundant species. The anthropophilia and high frequencies of Pi. fischeri and Mg. migonei suggest that both species may be transmitting ACL agents in this region.Casos humanos de leishmaniose tegumentar americana (LTA têm sido registrados na Serra da Cantareira, região da Grande São Paulo, onde se situam o Parque Estadual da Cantareira e o Parque Estadual Alberto Löfgren.

    Full Text Available This paper addresses a core puzzle: why is continued citizen mobilization accompanied by growing disempowerment of those same citizens? Why do movements fail, leaders burn out and members disperse, and what are the implications of this organizational failure for demo¬cratic representation? Our consideration of the issues is rooted in a close examination of urban movements, mobilization, empowerment and disempowerment in the recent experience of Venezuela and Perú. The puzzle that concerns us is of course not limited to these two countries: it is common to all the Andean republics, and in different ways, to much recent experience of urban mobilization in Latin America and beyond. After a brief account of urban citizen move¬ments and politics in our two cases, we outline general reflections on the nature of empowerment and disempowerment, on the peculiar combination of strengths and weaknesses that mark many contemporary movements. A close examination of types of movements and their links with poli¬tical parties and protest follows. The character of city life is important here. We close with analysis of recent waves of urban mobilization in Perú (that sparked the ouster of president Alberto Fujimori and in Venezuela (both for and against president Hugo Chávez Frías, and with reflections on the likely future of empowerment and disempowerment for urban citizens and the implications of this perspective for democratic representationEste artículo plantea un puzzle principal: ¿por qué la movilización ciudadana continuada viene acompañada de un crecimiento del desempoderamiento de estos mismos ciudadanos? ¿Por qué los movimientos fracasan, los líderes se desgastan y los miembros se dispersan, y cuáles son las implicaciones del fracaso organizativo para la representación democrática?

En primer lugar, se examinan las dificultades que han tenido las clases medias peruanas para liderar procesos de desarrollo y democratización en el país. Nace corno una clase con poca autonomía con respecto al Estado o a las elites económicas y corno resultado no han logrado impregnar a la sociedad peruana con una ideología de equidad y democracia. En segundo lugar, se analiza cómo las Organizaciones No-Gubernamentales de Desarrollo (oNc;Ds abren un espacio en los años 70 que permite el acercamiento de un sector de la clase media con la mayoría pobre del país, constituyéndose en una experiencia inédita que ha enriquecido la práctica política de ambos sectores. Bajo una ideología de cambio y conscientes de la necesidad de construir a la nación, estas organizaciones han aportado ideas y experiencias innovadoras sobre la base de la participación democrática. En tercer lugar, explora cómo en el Perú de Fujimori se debilitan más aún las instituciones articuladoras e integradoras de la nación, dejando a las ONGDS como una de las pocas instancias con proyectos políticos basados, de una forma u otra, en las necesidades y demandas de las mayorías nacionales. Esta importante tarea, no obstante, cada vez se hará más difícil al evolucionar las ONGDS peruanas hacia instituciones más profesionales y técnicas, adquiriendo en el proceso un perfil más cercano al imaginario de la clase media y menos próximo a las necesidades de los pobres del país.ABSTRACT: In the article, three important aspects of Peruvian political development are examined, as well as how they interrelate in the 1990's during Alberto Fujimori's regime.

    Full Text Available This paper attempts to present the "school concept" from its etymological origin and to link it to the dynamics of history as an ever changing concept; also, to relate it to the history of knowledge, with its characteristic changes and ruptures. The "school concept" advances from the mechanistic space to Newton´s formulations, whose model of the universe dominated scientific thought between the middle of the XVII century and the end of the XIX century; then with Einstein´s modern physics and the relativity and quantic theories. Einstein broke up with the mechanistic Newtonian vision of the XIX century physics, but biomedical science, through education, remains anchored to the fragmentary vision of reality offered by symptoms and organs. The change from the anatomoclinical school to the physiopathological one at the Medical Faculty, University of Antioquia, is described. This Faculty dates back to 1871 and started under the influence of the anatomoclinical French model. It did not change until 1940; then there was a significant change to scientific medicine with the pathology laboratory (1943 and the clinicopathological conference (1944, both founded by doctor Alfredo Correa Henao. Also, with the development of modern physiology with doctor Alberto Saldarriaga, a surgeon from the school of Bernard and Leriche, and doctor Antonio Ramírez González, a physiologist from Louisville University (USA and a chest surgeon from the United Kingdom.

    Full Text Available Torres del Paine National Park (12th Region, Chile, the Paine Massif and its surroundings are a major milestone concerning three issues: the perception of nature in the Patagonian-Andean environment, the first steps of conservationism in South America and the first scientific studies in this part of the planet. In addition, ever since scientists and travelers were to “discover” this region, Paine has been a benchmark of both the first proposals for nature tourism linked with conservationism, as well as a major challenge for alpine expeditions.

    Due to these circumstances, the doctoral dissertation of the author devotes one entire chapter to analysing the main contributions of the Paine phenomenon to the geographical knowledge of inland Patagonia and to the perception of Torres del Paine as a natural heritage worth preserving. This is precisely the subject of this paper, which gives an insight into the geographical reconnaissance explorations that took place between 1877 and 1896 in the Patagonian inland, under the initiatives of Chilean and Argentinean governments; the first known touristic travel in the Chilean region of Magallanes; the role of the first “visionaries” of Patagonian-Andean tourism in Chile, gathered around Werner Gromsch and the Touring Club; or the geographical, scientific and informative work carried out by Alberto Maria De Agostini.

Few head-to-head comparative trials are available.Purpose: The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the relative efficacy of different biologic agents indicated for use as monotherapy in rheumatoid arthritis.Methods: A systemic literature search was performed on electronic databases to identify articles reporting double-blind randomized controlled trials investigating the efficacy of biologic agents indicated for monotherapy. Efficacy was assessed using American College of Rheumatology (ACR 20, 50, and 70 criteria at 16–24 weeks. Relative efficacy was estimated using Bayesian mixed-treatment comparison models. Outcome measures were expressed as odds ratio and 95% credible intervals.Results: Ten randomized controlled trials were selected for data extraction and analysis. Mixed-treatment comparison analysis revealed that tocilizumab offered 100% probability of being the best treatment for inducing an ACR20 response versus placebo, methotrexate, adalimumab, or etanercept. Likewise, for ACR50 and ACR70 outcome responses, tocilizumab had a 99.8% or 98.7% probability of being the best treatment, respectively, compared to other treatments or placebo. Tocilizumab increased the relative probability of being the best treatment (vs methotrexate by 3.2-fold (odds ratio: 2.1–3.89 for all ACR outcomes.Conclusion: Tocilizumab offered the greatest possibility of obtaining an ACR20, ACR50, and ACR70 outcome vs other monotherapies or placebo.

  14. Evaluation of the ICRU operational magnitudes implantation for the photon radiation at the Angra I and Angra II nuclear power plants

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The measurements of photon radiation field intensity are usually performed by a radiation protection technician trained and having skill in using radiation rate meters. Nowadays, these measurements are reported on exposure quantity and used to protect exposed individuals against the radiation risks while executing their activities. The International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements - ICRU - defined the operational quantity ambient equivalent dose H*(10). This quantity is accepted by the scientific community as the best estimative of the protection quantity effective dose, which can not be directly measured. The operational quantity H*(10) was introduced in Brazilian rules by the National Commission of Nuclear Energy - CNEN (2005a), although its adoption was conditioned to studies of convenience and applicability of implementation. The present work may contribute to these studies, as it presents the evaluation of H*(10)'s implementation at the Nuclear Central Almirante Alvaro Alberto - CNAAA. The evaluation involved radiological tests - the energy dependence and angular dependence - applied to six types of photon radiation rate meters utilized at the CNAAA, with represent around 83% of the total number of rate meters in use by CNAAA. The result of this evaluation is favorable to the quantity H*(10)'s implementation. Suggestions are presented in order to update de rate meters and the technical and administrative procedures related to the Laboratory of Calibration of Rate Meters - LCMR, belonging to CNAAA. Thus, it could be possible to perform the calibration of the rate meters at the nuclear installation. The results obtained allows to carry out new evaluations of H*(10)'s implementation on installations that perform measurements with radiation rate meters on the practice of radiation protection, in order to adopt the H*(10) quantity in our country.

Antileukotriene drugs, ie, leukotriene receptor antagonists and synthesis inhibitors, are a class of anti-inflammatory drugs that have shown clinical efficacy in the management of asthma and in rhinitis with asthma. We searched MEDLINE database and carried out a manual search on journals specializing in allergy and dermatology for the use of antileukotriene drugs in urticaria. Montelukast might be effective in chronic urticaria associated with aspirin (ASA or food additive hypersensitivity or with autoreactivity to intradermal serum injection (ASST when taken with an antihistamine but not in mild or moderate chronic idiopathic urticaria [urticaria without any possible secondary causes (ie, food additive or ASA and other NSAID hypersensitivity, or ASST]. Evidence for the effectiveness of zafirlukast and the 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor, zileuton, in chronic urticaria is mainly anecdotal. In addition, there is anecdotal evidence of effectiveness of antileukotrienes in primary cold urticaria, delayed pressure urticaria and dermographism. No evidence exists for other physical urticarias, including cholinergic, solar and aquagenic urticarias, vibratory angioedema, and exercise-induced anaphylaxis.Keywords: chronic idiopathic urticaria, leukotriene receptor antagonists, montelukast, zafirlukast, antihistamine

In this study, we developed an optical hyperthermia method capable of inducing in vitro death of glioblastoma cells.Methods: The procedure used was based on irradiation of gold nanorods with a continuous wave laser. This kind of nanoparticle converts absorbed light into localized heat within a short period of time due to the surface plasmon resonance effect. The effectiveness of the method was determined by measuring changes in cell viability after laser irradiation of glioblastoma cells in the presence of gold nanorods.Results: Laser irradiation in the presence of gold nanorods induced a significant decrease in cell viability, while no decrease in cell viability was observed with laser irradiation or incubation with gold nanorods alone. The mechanism of cell death mediated by gold nanorods during photothermal ablation was analyzed, indicating that treatment compromised the integrity of the cell membrane instead of initiating the process of programmed cell death.Conclusion: The use of gold nanorods in hyperthermal therapies is very effective in eliminating glioblastoma cells, and therefore represents an important area of research for therapeutic development.Keywords: laser irradiation, photothermal therapy, surface plasmon resonance, cancer

This syndrome is related to the progressive impairment of health conditions and/or stressing events (ie, hospitalization, characterized by confusion and/or stupor, which are consequently difficult to manage and require a great deal of care. Geriatric patients often suffer from multiple chronic illnesses, may take numerous medications daily, exhibit clinical instability, and may experience worsening of medical conditions following cerebral ischemic events and thus have an increased risk of disability and mortality. There are several studies in literature which demonstrate the efficacy of citicoline, thanks to its neuroprotective function, for the recovery and in postischemic cerebral rehabilitation. It has been shown that, even soon after an ischemic stroke, administration of oral citicoline (500–4000 mg/day improves the general conditions evaluated with the Rankin scale and the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale 12. In particular, it has been shown that the CDP-choline improves the cognitive and mental performance in Alzheimer's dementia and vascular dementia. We have evaluated the administration of citicoline in geriatric patients following a protocol of intravenous study on improvement of individual performances.Keywords: geriatric syndrome, citicoline, Alzheimer's disease, cerebrovascular disease, comorbidities

    The parallel session C5 on Space-Based Detectors gave a broad overview over the planned space missions related to gravitational wave detection. Overviews of the revolutionary science to be expected from LISA was given by Alberto Sesana and Sasha Buchman. The launch of LISA Pathfinder (LPF) is planned for 2015. This mission and its payload "LISA Technology Package" will demonstrate key technologies for LISA. In this context, reference masses in free fall for LISA, and gravitational physics in general, was described by William Weber, laser interferometry at the pico-metre level and the optical bench of LPF was presented by Christian Killow and the performance of the LPF optical metrology system by Paul McNamara. While LPF will not yet be sensitive to gravitational waves, it may nevertheless be used to explore fundamental physics questions, which was discussed by Michele Armano. Some parts of the LISA technology that are not going to be demonstrated by LPF, but under intensive development at the moment, were presented by Oliver Jennrich and Oliver Gerberding. Looking into the future, Japan is studying the design of a mid-frequency detector called DECIGO, which was discussed by Tomotada Akutsu. Using atom interferometry for gravitational wave detection has also been recently proposed, and it was critically reviewed by Peter Bender. In the nearer future, the launch of GRACE Follow-On (for Earth gravity observation) is scheduled for 2017, and it will include a Laser Ranging Interferometer as technology demonstrator. This will be the first inter-spacecraft laser interferometer and has many aspects in common with the LISA long arm, as discussed by Andrew Sutton.

  20. NBR ISO 9001 Certification for activities carried out in IEA-R1 reactor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Since its inauguration in 1957, the IEA-R1 research reactor has been used mainly for research, development and teaching by scientific community. In the last years, with the increase of the commercial radiopharmaceutical production by Radiopharmacy Center of IPEN, the IEA-R1 reactor was recognized as a service supplier for that center and has received a treatment more commercial from IPEN Management. In 1999 the radiopharmaceutical production obtained the NBR ISO 9002 Certification, since that the IPEN Management considered convenient to invest in the certification of its internal suppliers. In this context, in 2001 the Research Reactor Center (CRPq) began the implantation of a Quality Management System (QMS) based on NBR 9001: 2000 standard, for activities related to the operation and maintenance of the IEA-R1 research reactor and irradiation services. This QMS was structured to incorporate tools already implemented in order to complain the requirements related to nuclear and radiological safe for a nuclear installation established by the regulatory organism. The QMS is supported by a documentation system composed of approximately 150 documents including quality manual, business and action plans, operational procedures and work instruction. Carlos Alberto Vanzolini Foundation (FCAV), an INMETRO certified organism, certified the 'Operation and Maintenance of the IEA-R1 Research Reactor and Irradiation Services' in December 2002. In 2003 and 2004, the QMS was audited by FCAV that determined the maintenance of the certification. This work presents the main steps of the QMS implementation, including the difficulties found and results obtained in the process. (author)

Nuestra consideración del asunto encuentra sus raíces en un profundo análisis de los movimientos urbanos, de la movilización, del empoderamiento y del desempoderamiento en la experiencia reciente de Venezuela y Perú. Después de una breve explicación de los movimientos ciudadanos urbanos y de la política en nuestros dos casos, concretaremos unas reflexiones generales sobre la naturaleza de ese proceso, y sobre la peculiar combinación de fortalezas y fragilidades que determinan muchos movimientos contemporáneos. Seguiremos con un examen de los tipos de movimientos y de sus vínculos con los partidos políticos y las protestas. Las características de la vida urbana son muy importantes en este contexto. Concluiremos con el análisis de las recientes oleadas de movilizaciones urbanas en Perú (que provocaron la salida del presidente Alberto Fujimori y en Venezuela (ambas a favor y en contra del presidente Hugo Chávez Frías, y con algunas reflexiones sobre el futuro más probable del empoderamiento y desempoderamiento de los ciudadanos urbanos y sobre las implicaciones de esta perspectiva para la representación democrática.

    Full Text Available Alberto Palazzuoli, Susanna Benincasa, Stefanie Grothgar, Pasquale Di Sipio, Giovanni Paganini, Marco Pellegrini, Ranuccio NutiDepartment of Internal Medicine and Metabolic Diseases, Cardiology Section, Le Scotte Hospital, University of Siena, ItalyAbstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD is associated with a significant increase in death and cardiovascular mortality. However the exact mechanism by which CKD impairs the cardiovascular outcome is not well established. Some reasons may lie in the association of CKD with several other cardiovascular and noncardiovascular disorders including accelerated systemic atherosclerosis, endothelial dysfunction, increased levels of inflammatory factors, anemic status, bone mineral dysfunction, electrolyte imbalance, and renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS activation. Therefore several risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, lipid disorders, and older age are common in both conditions. In patients affected with heart failure (HF a key role is represented by the neurohormonal activation. This condition causes fluid and sodium retention, peripheral vasoconstriction, as well as increased congestion and cardiac workload. Moreover, HF during the decompensated phases is often associated with a worsening renal function that leads to further RAAS activation, microvascular damage, and intrarenal flow redistribution. In order to clarify the interactions between these factors, several questions need to be answered: the universal definition of “worsening renal function,” the identification of the best laboratory parameters to investigate renal function in terms of sensitivity and specificity, and a better definition of the comorbidities’ role in the determination of the outcome, especially in patients with chronic HF. A clarification of these key points could lead to the individualization of new specific therapeutic targets and to a reduction in mortality and hospitalization in patients with HF and

  7. Brazil: National approach to ageing management

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Eletrobras Eletronuclear, the Brazilian company responsible for the construction and operation of nuclear power plants, operates two PWR units at Central Nuclear Almirante Álvaro Alberto – CNAAA, situated in Angra dos Reis city. Angra 1 is a 640 MWe Westinghouse plant, operating since 1985, and Angra 2 is a 1350 MWe plant, designed by Areva-Siemens-KWU which started operation in 2001. A third unit, similar to Angra 2, is being constructed at the same site and is due to commence operation in 2016. Angra 1 and 2 nuclear steam supply systems have been designed to ASME and KTA codes, respectively. Brazilian nuclear power plants are licensed for a period of 40 years in accordance with the rule CNEN NE-1.04, ‘Licensing of Nuclear Installations’, issued by, the Brazilian regulatory board: Comissão Nacional de Energia Nuclear (CNEN). PSRs are conducted in accordance with CNEN NE-1.26, ‘Safety in Operating Nuclear Power Plants’, consistent with IAEA Safety Guide No. NS-G-2.10, ‘Periodic Safety Review of Nuclear Power Plants’. A comprehensive AMP at Angra NPP is being developed with the objective of coordinating operations, maintenance and engineering actions to control under acceptable limits the effects of ageing to maintain integrity and functional capability of SSCs important to safety the way that the licensing basis of the plants are maintained during the period of the current operating license and during the period of LTO, as defined in IAEA Safety Reports Series No.57, ‘Safe Long Term Operation of Nuclear Power Plants’. The AMP implementation project at Angra counts on the technical support of the designers of both plants. During the initial phase, technical visits of Westinghouse and Areva and the development of a pilot project for a mechanical system (by Westinghouse) contributed to the first assessments of the available documental infrastructure and of the proposed methodology for the development of AMP processes

  8. Biological studies in animal models using [99mTc](CO)3 recombinant annexin V as diagnostic agent of apoptotic processes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Introduction: There are many diseases associated with variations in the expression of apoptosis such as organ rejection after transplantation, myocardial ischemia or infarct and neurodegenerative diseases. For this reason, the early visualization of this process is relevant to set fast and effective therapeutic strategies. Methods: The precursor was prepared according to the procedure reported by R. Alberto, R. Schibli, P. Schubiger, U. Abram, and T. Kaden [Reactions with the technetium and rhenium carbonyl complexes (NEt4)[MX3(CO)3]. Synthesis and structure of Tc(CN-But)3(CO)3](NO3) and (Net4)[Tc2(μ-SCH2CH2OH)3(CO)3], Polyhedron 1996;15: 1079-89]. Recombinant annexin V was incubated with [99mTc](H2O)3(CO)3+ solution, previously neutralized with buffer. Biodistribution studies were performed in 8-week-old female Wistar rats. Animals were housed and treated in compliance with institutional guidelines related to animal experimentation. Work protocol was previously approved by the Animal Ethics Committee of the university. Two groups of rats were defined. One was used as control and the other group was previously injected with 150 mg/kg ip of cyclophosphamide to induce apoptosis. Results: The synthesis of carbonyl precursor achieved yields higher than 90%, and the radiolabeled protein was obtained with 92% of radiochemical purity and high stability in vitro. An important uptake in apoptotic tissues was confirmed by biodistributions, scintigraphic images and histological studies. Conclusions: Biodistribution studies revealed hepatobiliary elimination, high stability in vivo and important uptake in the reticuloendothelial system. In the pathologic model, higher uptake values correspond to the liver, spleen, lungs and femur. Histological studies confirmed the development of apoptosis at 8 and 24 h postinduction in the spleen and lymphocyte bulks in the peribronchial area. Scintigraphic images confirmed high uptake both the spleen and the lungs.

Unfortunately, the possibilities for treating flagellated kinetoplastid infections are still very limited and most of the available drugs exhibit severe side effects. Although the development of new drugs for Leishmania has markedly improved in the last years, the tendency is still to employ antimonial compounds. On the other hand, treatment for Chagas’ disease is only available for the acute phase with no effective therapeutical options for chronic stage disease. The following case report substantiates the recently discovered effect of amiodarone as a nonconventional antiparasitic drug, particularly against Leishmania, breaching a new perspective in the therapeutic management of these important infectious parasitic diseases.Keywords: Chagas’ disease, leishmaniasis, chemotherapy, amiodarone

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In 2011, in Brazil, a National Intercalibration and Intercomparison exercise on in vivo measurement of iodine-131 in the thyroid was carried out in the scope of the Project IAEABRA9055 'Establishing a National Laboratory Network for Internal Individual Monitoring'. The exercise was conducted by the Institute for Radiation Protection and Dosimetry (IRD) and the Institute for Nuclear and Energetic Research (IPEN), from National Nuclear Energy Commission (CNEN). The objectives of the exercise were to (i) update information on current instrumentation resources available in the in vivo monitoring laboratories in operation in Brazil and to (ii) verify the reliability of the results of measurements of iodine-131 in thyroid provided by those laboratories. The procedure consisted on the measurement of a neck-thyroid anthropomorphic phantom provided by the In Vivo Monitoring Laboratory of IRD, containing two barium-133 standard sources certified by the National Laboratory for Metrology of Ionizing Radiation. Each participant should measure the phantom in a period of five days. The five laboratories are located in the States of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais and Pernambuco, in the following Institutions: Institute for Radiation Protection and Dosimetry, Nuclear Power Station Almirante Alvaro Alberto, Center for the Development of Nuclear Technology, Institute for Nuclear and Energetic Research, and Regional Center for Nuclear Sciences. The results reported included: activity measured, minimum detectable activity, accuracy and precision. The performance of the laboratories was evaluated according to the criteria suggested by ANSI 13.30 indicating their capacity to provide reliable results of iodine-131 content in the thyroid.

Because LUTIs are a common side effect of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT for prostate cancer, we evaluated the clinical efficacy of enteric-coated tablets containing highly standardized V. msacrocarpon (ecVM in this condition.Methods: A total of 370 consecutive patients were entered into this study. All patients received intensity-modulated radiotherapy for prostate cancer; 184 patients were also treated with ecVM while 186 served as controls. Cranberry extract therapy started on the simulation day, at which time a bladder catheterization was performed. During EBRT (over 6–7 weeks, all patients underwent weekly examination for urinary tract symptoms, including regular urine cultures during the treatment period.Results: Compliance was excellent, with no adverse effects or allergic reactions being observed, apart from gastric pain in two patients. In the cranberry cohort (n = 184, 16 LUTIs (8.7% were observed, while in the control group (n = 186 45 LUTIs (24.2% were recorded. This difference was statistically significant. Furthermore, lower rates of nocturia, urgency, micturition frequency, and dysuria were observed in the group that received cranberry extract.Conclusion: Cranberry extracts have been reported to reduce the incidence of LUTIs significantly in women and children. Our data extend these results to patients with prostate cancer undergoing irradiation to the pelvis, who had a significant reduction in LUTIs compared with controls. These results were accompanied by a statistically significant reduction in urinary tract symptoms (dysuria, nocturia, urinary frequency, urgency, suggesting a generally

Rehabilitation is an alternative and important approach which may be useful, and encompasses a variety of treatments including social skills training and psychoeducational and cognitive behavioral treatments.Objective: To investigate the efficacy of psychosocial treatments in schizophrenia, evaluating its effects in the short and long term, comparing psychosocial treatments with pharmacotherapy, and assessing the effects of treatment and the main indications for use in patients with schizophrenia.Methods: A careful MEDLINE®, Excerpta Medica, PsycLIT®, PsycINFO®, and Index Medicus search was performed to identify all papers and book chapters in English for the period 1970–2012.Results: Findings from the studies included in this qualitative analysis suggest that social skills therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family intervention therapy, cognitive remediation therapy, and other nonpharmacological therapeutic strategies may be beneficial for patients with significant functional and symptomatic impairments.Conclusion: Schizophrenic patients treated with nonpharmacological

  13. Radionuclides determination in the Sargassum algae located in the Saco de Piraquara de Fora - Angra dos Reis - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The main purpose of the Environmental Monitoring Laboratory, in the Mambucaba Residential Site is to control all environment around Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Station (AAANPS) in order to check its operational influence on the local ecosystem. Angra I Nuclear Power Plant usually discharges liquid waste from the Treatment System (waste and recycle evaporators). Before the water is discharged into the sea, it is chemically and radiochemically and analysed to verify if dissolved contaminants are in agreement with the specifications established by the Fundacao Estadual de Engenharia de Meio Ambiente (FEEMA) for the chemical parameters and by the Comissao Nacional de Energia Nuclear (CNEN) for radiochemical parameters. Such radioactive contaminants are 58 Co, 60 Co and 54 Mn, which are activated corrosion products from structural materials of the primary system and 134 Cs and 137 Cs, fission products produced by the nuclear reactor during its operation. To measure and control the possible discharge of these radionuclides into the sea and their incorporation to the marine organisms, it was created the Environmental Radiological Monitoring Special Program (ERMSP). The purpose of this program is to control the absorption of the radionuclides 58 Co, 60 Co, 54 Mn, 134 Cs and 137 Cs in algae of the genus Sargassum located in the surroundings the discharge of the liquid effluents of the genus Sargassum located in the surroundings the discharge of the liquid effluents of the Plant in Saco de Piraquara de Fora. The algae are considered excellent bioindicators because they are fixed on the rocks, being totally dependent on the water quality where they live, being being as easy target to incorporate and to detect those radionuclides. The algae are collected bimestrally and analysed by the Laboratory. This work presents the sampling process, the preparation, the sampling process, the preparation, the analysis of the radionuclides and the results obtained. (author)

  14. Flow accelerated corrosion programme in Angra nuclear power plants Units 1 and 2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant, referred herein as Angra NPP, comprises two generating units operated by ELETROBRAS Termonuclear S.A. - ELETRONUCLEAR. Unit 1, a Westinghouse designed PWR, operates commercially since 1982 generating 657 MW, while unit 2, designed by Siemens, is a 1350 MW PWR in operation since 2000. Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) programme integrate a set of ageing related programmes established to control ageing effects on equipment and piping in order to ensure their capability to perform their functions during the plant remaining life. The objective of this paper is to describe ELETRONUCLEAR experience in developing and implementing a programme related to Flow Accelerated Corrosion, with focus on piping of the secondary sides of Angra NPP, explaining in detail the current situation for important pipings, and presenting updated results of the FAC control. Accurate inspections are the basis for an effective FAC programme. Wall thickness measurements establish the extent of wear in a given piping, providing data to support FAC trends, and to refine the predictive model. A permanently and clearly identify grid is makes re-inspection possible, at any time, at the same points. Supported by the computational system Comsy, some of its features as FAC potentially susceptible lines identification, wall thinning rates determination, inspection data recording, wear rates analyses, lifetime prediction and inspection scheduling will be showed in detail. This programme has started in 2004, and since this time it was applied in a total of six outages in Angra 1 NPP and three outages in Angra 2 NPP, with a large number of piping elements inspected and analyzed. Some of these results will be showed and discussed in this paper, regarding the potential of Flow Accelerated Corrosion occurrence. (author)

Cariogram is a well-recognized algorithm-based software program based on different caries-related risk factors and intended to aid clinicians in performing more objective and consistent dental caries risk assessments. This type of approach precedes the diagnosis of caries and allows the dentist to identify at-risk patients and then take appropriate preventive measures before caries develop further. One of the etiological factors favoring the development of dental caries is the mutans streptococci. These acidogenic dental plaque inhabitants can be effectively antagonized by the activity of bacteriocins released by the probiotic Streptococcus salivarius M18 (salivarius M18. Moreover, salivarius M18 after colonizing the human oral mucosa produces the enzymes dextranase and urease that are able to counteract plaque formation and saliva acidity, respectively. Seventy-six subjects at high risk of dental caries were randomized and then either treated or not treated for 90 days with an oral formulation containing the oral probiotic salivarius M18 (Carioblis®. The results indicate that the use of salivarius M18 increases the chances of avoiding new dental caries development in children, and its application could be proposed as a new tool in the dentist's armory to be adopted in subjects considered at high risk on the basis of their Cariogram outcome.

    A comprehensive understanding of the meteorological and microphysical nature of Mediterranean storms requires a combination of in situ data analysis, radar data analysis, and satellite data analysis, effectively integrated with numerical modeling studies at various scales. An important aspect of understanding microphysical controls of severe storms, is first understanding the meteorological controls under which a storm has evolved, and then using that information to help characterize the dominant microphysical processes. For hazardous Mediterranean storms, highlighted by the October 5-6, 1998 Friuli flood event in northern Italy, a comprehensive microphysical interpretation requires an understanding of the multiple phases of storm evolution. This involves intense convective development, Sratiform decay, orographic lifting, and sloped frontal lifting processes, as well as the associated vertical motions and thermodynamical instabilities governing physical processes that effect details of the size distributions and fall rates of the various types of hydrometeors found within the storm environment. This talk overviews the microphysical elements of a severe Mediterranean storm in such a context, investigated with the aid of TRMM satellite and other remote sensing measurements, but guided by a nonhydrostatic mesoscale model simulation of the Friuli flood event. The data analysis for this paper was conducted by my research groups at the Global Hydrology and Climate Center in Huntsville, AL and Florida State University in Tallahassee, and in collaboration with Dr. Alberto Mugnai's research group at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics in Rome. The numerical modeling was conducted by Professor Oreg Tripoli and Ms. Giulia Panegrossi at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, using Professor Tripoli's nonhydrostatic modeling system (NMS). This is a scalable, fully nested mesoscale model capable of resolving nonhydrostatic circulations from regional scale down to cloud scale

This study aims to investigate the impact of limbic system morphology on FER scores in BD subjects and healthy controls.Material and methods: Thirty-nine euthymic BD I (type I subjects and 40 healthy controls were subjected to a battery of FER tests and examined with 3D structural imaging of the amygdala and hippocampus.Results: The volume of these structures demonstrated a differential pattern of influence on FER scores in BD subjects and controls. In our control sample, larger left and right amygdala demonstrated to be associated to less recognition of sadness faces. In BD group, there was no impact of amygdala volume on FER but we observed a negative impact of the left hippocampus volume in the recognition of happiness while the right hippocampus volume positively impacted on the scores of happiness.Conclusion: Our results indicate that amygdala and hippocampus volumes have distinct effects on FER in BD subjects compared to controls. Knowledge of the neurobiological basis of the illness may help to provide further insights on the role of treatments and psychosocial interventions for BD. Further studies should explore how these effects of amygdala and hippocampus volumes on FER are associated with social networks and social network functioning.Keywords: bipolar disorder, social cognition, facial emotion recognition

An 87-year-old woman was hospitalized for the onset of confusion, tremors, an inability to walk, and a fever that she had been experiencing for 36 hours. She often took high dosages of lactulose and sorbitol syrup as a laxative (about 70 g/day. During her physical examination, the patient was confused, drowsy, and she presented hyposthenia in her upper and lower limbs, symmetric and diffuse moderate hyporeflexia, and her temperature was 37.8°C. Laboratory tests revealed severe hyponatremia with hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hypochloremia, and metabolic alkalosis. Moreover, rhabdomyolysis markers were found. The correction of hydroelectrolytic imbalances with saline, potassium and sodium chlorure, calcium gluconate was the first treatment. During her hospitalization the patient presented acute delirium, treated with haloperidol and prometazine chloridrate intramuscularly. She was discharged 12 days later, after resolution of symptoms, and normalized laboratory tests. Over-the-counter drugs such as laxatives are usually not considered dangerous; on the other hand, they may cause serum electrolytic imbalance and rhabdomyolysis. A careful monitoring of all the drugs taken by the elderly is one of the most important duties of a physician since drug interactions and

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present work aimed the study of the dispersion profiles of radionuclides released in liquid radioactive effluents from the Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto (CNAAA), in the Ilha Grande Bay, located in Angra dos Reis, RJ. Taking the overall activity released by liquid effluents discharge from the CNAAA in the Piraquara de Fora Bay as a reference parameter to the dilution rates scanning, the accordance level between the achieved 3H results (1 :16) and those reported by Franklin (1 :20) can be seen as relevant. The post-1965 137Cs concentration raise can be regarded as a consequence of the operational start up in the CNAAA, being the Ribeira Bay considered its preferential uptake, from the plume displacement high tide, as well as its retention, due to local deposition favourable trends. The evaluation of the prevailing mechanism on long half-life radio isotopes dispersion pointed out its dependence on meteorological condition parameters, during the sampling procedures. If diffusion prevailingness occurs, both 223Ra and 224Ra distribution pathways result in diffusion coefficients ranging from 20,12 ± 3,81 - 21,07 ± 3,91 km2.d-1 to a 228Ra offshore flux and time of residence of, respectively, 3,18 ± 1,01 x 108 Bq.d-1 and 25,35 ± 0,45 days.

Major advances but still insufficient achievements in the treatment of locally advanced and high-risk early stage patients have occurred in the last decade with the incorporation of concurrent cisplatin with radiation and, lately, gemcitabine added to cisplatin chemoradiation. Despite a number of clinical studies incorporating molecular-targeted therapy as radiosensitizers being in progress, so far, only antiangiogenic therapy with bevacizumab added to cisplatin chemoradiation has demonstrated safety and shown encouraging results in a Phase II study. In advanced disease, cisplatin doublets do not have a great impact on the natural history of the disease with median survival rates not exceeding 13 months. The first Phase III study of bevacizumab, added to cisplatin or a non-cisplatin-containing doublet, showed significant increase in both overall survival and progression-free survival. Further studies are needed before bevacizumab plus chemotherapy can be considered the standard of care for advanced disease. Characterization of the mutational landscape of cervical cancer has already been initiated, indicating that, for now, few of these targetable alterations match with available agents. Progress in both the mutational landscape knowledge and developments of novel targeted therapies may result in more effective and individualized treatments for cervical cancer.

    Transierra is a Bolivian company created in the year 2000 with the goal of transporting natural gas from the fields of San Alberto and San Antonio, in Tarija, to the Rio Grande Gas Compression Plant in Santa Cruz, for export to Brazil. Transierra has implemented a Social Action Plan, which allowed it to execute more than 800 community projects for the benefit of over 40 thousand families living in it's area of influence, with the presence of 146 indigenous communities, generally lagging behind in economic and productive life in the region and country. The Support Program to Guarani Development Plans (PA-PDG) is part of the Social Plan and is part of a long-term agreement signed between Transierra and indigenous organizations. The program has implemented more than one hundred projects for productive development, health, education, cultural revaluation, and strengthening organizational infrastructure, generating huge benefits in improving the living conditions of thousands of families of the Guarani people. This year a unique initiative was created with 4 Indigenous Captains and with the support of the International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group), including Business Plans to promote sustainable economic growth, created productive economic cycles involving improvements to the production and productivity to enter the commercial distribution of local and national markets. These four initiatives have meant a shift in the implementation and is helping to generate new dynamics in production, in addition to capturing significant resources from public and private investment, laying the groundwork for the improvement of the incomes and quality of life of its beneficiaries.

    Leishmaniosis is an important human disease very difficult to treat. For this reason, many researchers in the world have been look- ing for anti-leishmanial chemical components present in several plant species. In Costa Rica, since no studies have been done in this field, this work aimed at the search of active chemical components in local plants that may have an activity against Leishmania sp. A total of 67 plants were selected from the Alberto Manuel Brenes Biological Reserve (REBAMB). For these collected plants, fresh or dried hidroalcoholic extracts of root, stem, mature or young leaves, flowers, and immature or mature fruits, were prepared under conventional methods. All extracts were tested for their effect against a strain of Leishmania (OCR with known characteristics). Firstly, by presumptive tests, we selected only those with some activity, and then, more specific studies were done to determine the IC50 in μg/mL; a promising plant was considered only if at least one of its parts presented an IC50 Neurolaena lobata (25.0 and 100.0), Persea povedae (76.9), Piper auritum (60.0), Rollinia pittieri (43.1), Solanum arboreum (25.8 and 72.5), Tetrorchidiumn eurphyllum (53.8 and 95.0), Witheringia solanacea (15.9 and 98.1) and Zanthoxylum juniperinum (23.4 and 97.5). Although the parasitic effect of fresh or dried extracts were almost similar, the fresh material slightly showed better results. That anti-parasitic effect occurred in one or more than four parts of the plant. Most of the active extracts did not produce lysis and aglutination which indicates a low toxicity. Since the species studied are different from those analyzed by other authors, we discuss the importance of these new findings, in relation to the new scientific knowledge, and the possible use of these plants as a leishmaniosis treatment.

    Treatment with the usual antimalarial drugs, have induced parasite resistance, reinforcing the need to finding natural antimalarial components that would be found on plants from the forest. Therefore, we decided to look for these components in Costa Rican plants from a protected forest area. Fresh and dry extracts of roots, bark, leaves, flowers and fruits of 25 plants from a biological reserve in Costa Rica, Reserva Biol6gica Alberto Manuel Brenes (REBAMB), were studied in vitro for the presence of substances with antimalarial activity. By studying the inhibition of P berghei schizogony, we assessed the antimalarial activity of several plant extracts: Aphelandra aurantiaca, A. tridentata (Acanthaceae); Xanthosoma undipes (Araceae); Iriartea deltoidea (Arecaceae); Neurolaena lobata (Asteraceae); Senna papillosa, Pterocarpus hayessi, Lonchocarpus pentaphyllus (Fabaceae); Nectandra membranacea, Persea povedae, Cinamomum chavarrianum (Lauraceae); Hampea appendiculata (Malvaceae); Ruagea glabra, Guarea glabra (Meliaceae); Psidium guajava (Myrtaceae); Bocconia frutescens (Papaveraceae); Piper friedrichsthalii (Piperaceae); Clematis dioica (Ranunculaceae); Prunus annularis (Rosaceae); Siparuna thecaphora (Siparunaceae); Solanum arboreum, Witheringia solanacea (Solanaceae); Ticodendrum incognitum (Ticodendraceae); Heliocarpus appendiculatus (Tiliaceae) and Myriocarpa longipes (Urticaceae). We used different parts of the plants as well as fresh and dried extracts for testing IC50. The solid content of the extracts ranged from 1-71.9 microg/mL. The fresh extracts showed stronger activity than the dry ones. Since the plants showing the strongest antimalarial activity are very common in Central America, and some similar genera of these plants have shown positives results in South America, we considered important to present these findings for discussion. On the other hand, this is the first systematic study of this kind ever realized in a circumscribed and protected area of

    Full Text Available Human cases of American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL have been recorded in Serra da Cantareira, in the Greater São Paulo Metropolitan Region, where two conservation units are situated, the Parque Estadual da Cantareira and the Parque Estadual Alberto Löfgren. The present study aimed to identify the sandfly fauna and some of its ecological aspects in these two parks and their surrounding area to investigate Leishmania sp. vectors. The captures were undertaken monthly from January to December 2009, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., with automatic light traps installed in forests and peridomicile areas and with modified black/white Shannon traps in the peridomicile. A total of 12 species and 5,436 sandflies were captured: with automatic light traps (141, Shannon traps (5,219 and attempting to bite the researchers while they were conducting the collection in Shannon traps (76. Pintomyia fischeri and Migonemyia migonei were the most abundant species. Pi. fischeri predominated in all three kinds of captures (49%, 88.8% and 65.8%, respectively. Mg. migonei was the second most prevalent in Shannon traps (10.0% and attempting to bite the researchers (22.4%. Pi. fischeri females were significantly more attracted to black and those of Mg. migonei to white Shannon traps. A positive and significant correlation was observed between the numbers of Pi. fischeri and the mean of minimum relative humidity values on the fifteen days prior to capture, while there was a negative and significant correlation between the relative humidity on the capture day and the two most abundant species. The anthropophilia and high frequencies of Pi. fischeri and Mg. migonei suggest that both species may be transmitting ACL agents in this region.

This study aims to define alexithymia's connections with shame, trauma, dissociation, and body image disorders.Methods: We administered the Dissociative Experience Scale-II, Trauma Symptom Inventory, Experience of Shame Scale, Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20, and Body Uneasiness Test questionnaires to 143 ED subjects. Extensive statistical analyses were performed.Results: The subjects showed higher scores on alexithymia, shame, dissociation, and traumatic feelings scales than the nonclinical population. These aspects are linked with each other in a statistically significant way. Partial correlations highlighted that feelings of shame are correlated to body dissatisfaction, irrespective of trauma or depressed mood. Multiple regression analysis demonstrates that shame (anorexic patients and perceived traumatic conditions (bulimic and ED not otherwise specified are associated with adverse image disorders.Conclusion: Shame seems to hold a central role in the perception of an adverse self-image. Alexithymia may be interpreted as being a consequence of previous unelaborated traumatic experiences and feelings of shame, and it could therefore be conceptualized as a maladaptive–reactive construct.Keywords: eating disorders, trauma, alexithymia, shame, body image

SAFA was administered to a cohort of 97 patients, aged from 8.8 to 18, with an ED diagnosis. Age, body mass index (BMI and BMI standard deviation score were analyzed. Furthermore, while looking for linkable risk factors, we evaluated other data that took an influence over the SAFA profile, like parental separation and family components’ number. Compared to the range of statistical normality (based on Italian population, patients with bulimia nervosa or binge-eating disorder showed higher and pathologic values in specific subscales. When analyzing sex, males showed more pathologic values in most anxiety-related, obsessiveness–compulsiveness-related and insecurity subscales. A correlation among age, BMI and specific subscales (low self esteem, psychological aspects emerged in participants with anorexia nervosa. In order to plan more appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in children or adolescents suffering from ED, the SAFA test can be an important instrument to evaluate psychiatric symptoms. Therefore, we propose to include this useful, simple self-administered test as a new screening tool for ED diagnosis.

    The measurements of photon radiation field intensity are usually performed by a radiation protection technician trained and having skill in using radiation rate meters. Nowadays, these measurements are reported on exposure quantity and used to protect exposed individuals against the radiation risks while executing their activities. The International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements - ICRU - defined the operational quantity ambient equivalent dose H{sup *}(10). This quantity is accepted by the scientific community as the best estimative of the protection quantity effective dose, which can not be directly measured. The operational quantity H{sup *}(10) was introduced in Brazilian rules by the National Commission of Nuclear Energy - CNEN (2005a), although its adoption was conditioned to studies of convenience and applicability of implementation. The present work may contribute to these studies, as it presents the evaluation of H{sup *}(10)'s implementation at the Nuclear Central Almirante Alvaro Alberto - CNAAA. The evaluation involved radiological tests - the energy dependence and angular dependence - applied to six types of photon radiation rate meters utilized at the CNAAA, with represent around 83% of the total number of rate meters in use by CNAAA. The result of this evaluation is favorable to the quantity H{sup *}(10)'s implementation. Suggestions are presented in order to update de rate meters and the technical and administrative procedures related to the Laboratory of Calibration of Rate Meters - LCMR, belonging to CNAAA. Thus, it could be possible to perform the calibration of the rate meters at the nuclear installation. The results obtained allows to carry out new evaluations of H{sup *}(10)'s implementation on installations that perform measurements with radiation rate meters on the practice of radiation protection, in order to adopt the H{sup *}(10) quantity in our country.

  2. The importance of the human factor in a physical protection system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: A complete physical protection system gathers three elements: equipment's, guards and procedures. The integration of these three elements will guarantee the efficiency of the overall PPS in such a way that it can meet the objectives that were defined during its project: clear and precise procedures will rule the relation between the technical factor (equipments/ hardware and software) and the human factor (guards). The technical factor is easily adapted ad upgraded to continue meet the objectives of the PPS; however, the human factor presents some resistance, internal and external, concerning the performance of its function within the overall PPS. The objective of this paper is to show the importance of the human factor as an integrant part of the PPS of a nuclear facility. 1. Good relationship between guards and other employees in a facility; 2. the knowledge and acceptance of rules and procedures; 3. and the awareness of the needing to implement security measures, as well as the cooperation with these measures to avoid unauthorized nuclear material removal from the facility or sabotage with consequent radioactive release will guarantee the success of the human factor within the overall PPS. In countries where there is no recent record of terrorist activities, as in Brazil's case, these three key factors are particularly critical, once the concept of security culture is not present in those people's way of life. The target public of this survey are the employees, including the guards of the security force, of the CNAAA - Central Nuclear Almirante Alvaro Alberto - consisting of Angra 1 and Angra 2 nuclear power plants. The tools used to came up with the conclusions of this work were two different kinds of questionnaires: a) one of the questionnaires was answered by the guards of the security force concerning their feelings or impressions about other employees' knowledge, acceptance and cooperation of/with the security measures applied on site, and their

Several studies have shown that it can have beneficial effects both in degenerative and in vascular cognitive decline. The aim of the present study was to review the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of this drug and its role in cognitive impairment according to the present medical literature.Methods: A MEDLINE® search was made using the following key words: citicoline, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, elderly, cognitive impairment, vascular dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Recent studies on the possible role of citicoline in increasing sirtuin 1 (SIRT1 expression were assessed. Some personal studies were also considered, such as the VITA study and the IDEALE study.Results: Administered by both oral and intravenous routes, citicoline is converted into two major circulating metabolites, cytidine and choline. It is metabolized in the gut wall and liver. Pharmacokinetic studies suggested that it is well absorbed and highly bioavailable with oral dosing. A number of studies have clearly shown the possible role of citicoline in cognitive impairment of diverse etiology. It can also modulate the activity/expression of some protein kinases involved in neuronal death and increases SIRT1 expression in the central nervous system. The VITA study and the IDEALE study suggested that both parenteral and oral citicoline are effective and safe. Other studies have clearly

Venuta, Viale Europa 88100 Catanzaro, Italy *These authors contributed equally to this workAbstract: During recent decades there have been remarkable advances and profound changes in cancer therapy. Many therapeutic strategies learned at the bench, including monoclonal antibodies and small molecule inhibitors, have been used at the bedside, leading to important successes. One of the most important advances in biology has been the discovery that small interfering RNA (siRNA is able to regulate the expression of genes, by a phenomenon known as RNA interference (RNAi. RNAi is one of the most rapidly growing fields of research in biology and therapeutics. Much research effort has gone into the application of this new discovery in the treatment of various diseases, including cancer. However, even though these molecules may have potential and strong utility, some limitations make their clinical application difficult, including delivery problems, side effects due to off-target actions, disturbance of physiological functions of the cellular machinery involved in gene silencing, and induction of the innate immune response. Many researchers have attempted to overcome these limitations and to improve the safety of potential RNAi-based therapeutics. Nanoparticles, which are nanostructured entities with tunable size, shape, and surface, as well as biological behavior, provide an ideal opportunity to modify current

The development of innovative formulation strategies, able to overcome physicochemical and pharmacokinetic limitations of this compound, may be achieved via suitable carriers able to associate controlled release and protection. In this context, nanotechnology is proving to be a powerful strategy. In this study, we developed novel cationic chitosan (CS- and anionic alginate (Alg-coated poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide nanoparticles (NPs loaded with the bioactive polyphenolic trans-(E-resveratrol (RSV for biomedical applications.Methods: NPs were prepared by the nanoprecipitation method and characterized in terms of morphology, size and zeta potential, encapsulation efficiency, Raman spectroscopy, swelling properties, differential scanning calorimetry, and in vitro release studies. The protective effect of the nanosystems under the light-stressed RSV and long-term stability were investigated.Results: NPs turned out to be spherical in shape, with size ranging from 135 to about 580 nm, depending on the composition and the amount of polyelectrolytes, while the encapsulation efficiencies increased from 8% of uncoated poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide (PLGA to 23% and 32% of Alg- and CS-coated PLGA NPs, respectively. All nanocarriers are characterized by a biphasic release pattern, and more effective controlled release rates are obtained for NPs formulated with higher polyelectrolyte concentrations. Stability

A large body of evidence has demonstrated the importance of small airways as a pharmacological target in these clinical conditions. Despite a deeper understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms, the epidemiological observations show that a significant proportion of asthmatic and COPD patients have a suboptimal (or lack of control of their diseases. Different factors could influence the effectiveness of inhaled treatment in chronic respiratory diseases: patient-related (eg, aging; disease-related (eg, comorbid conditions; and drug-related/formulation-related factors. The presence of multiple illnesses is common in the elderly patient as a result of two processes: the association between age and incidence of degenerative diseases; and the development over time of complications of the existing diseases. In addition, specific comorbidities may contribute to impair the ability to use inhalers, such as devices for efficient drug delivery in the respiratory system. The inability to reach and treat the peripheral airways may contribute to the lack of efficacy of inhaled treatments. The recent development of inhaled extrafine formulations allows a more uniform distribution of the inhaled treatment throughout the respiratory tree to include the peripheral airways. The beclomethasone/formoterol extrafine formulation is available for the treatment of asthma and COPD. Different biomarkers of peripheral airways are improved by beclomethasone

The main advantage of nanoparticles over traditional systems lies in the possibility of loading multiple functionalities onto a single molecule, which are useful for therapeutic and/or diagnostic purposes. These functionalities include targeting moieties which are able to recognize receptors overexpressed by specific cells and tissues. However, targeted delivery of nanoparticles requires an accurate system design. We present here a rationally designed, genetically engineered, and chemically modified protein-based nanoplatform for cell/tissue-specific targeting.Methods: Our nanoparticle constructs were based on the heavy chain of the human protein ferritin (HFt, a highly symmetrical assembly of 24 subunits enclosing a hollow cavity. HFt-based nanoparticles were produced using both genetic engineering and chemical functionalization methods to impart several functionalities, ie, the α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone peptide as a melanoma-targeting moiety, stabilizing and HFt-masking polyethylene glycol molecules, rhodamine fluorophores, and magnetic resonance imaging agents.

    From 1952 to 1962, a scientific and cultural periodic, named 'Revista Anhembi, was sold monthly. The magazine target was Brazilian and foreign schools and universities, his students and whoever was interested on culture, science, politics or signed articles. This publication purpose was to be the divulgation vehicle of new cultural and scientific ideas, most of them produced by Brazilian researchers, intellectuals and artists. Together with the cultural production of authors like Carlos Drummond de Andrade, the magazine also covered the major happenings from Brazil and the world. The editorials were signed by the magazine director - Paulo Duarte - one of the intellectuals with participation in the University of Sao Paulo foundation. Other researchers, already well-known at that time, such as Jose Reis, Florestan Fernandes and others, published in Anhembi, regularly. Their articles presented always a favorable content to democracy and the country development. What was out-of-date and its 'agents', the dictatorships, the corruption were open enemies of the magazine, which criticized governments, like for example, General Salazar's, in Portugal. The criticisms, sometimes contrary to the status quo, finally justified the circulation prohibition in some countries, like in Portugal, and also a diminishing of the advertising sponsorship Not only because of these problems, the increase in the paper cost made, in the long run, the publication of Anhembi impossible to continue. Meanwhile, the national nuclear policy and its defenders, like Alvaro Alberto da Motta e Silva, besides some other researchers, was not one of the routine issues covered by the magazine. Despite the magazine reported, in every new edition, a series of occurrences and claims - new universities and research centers foundation in the country, the struggle for funds, the national commissions asking for the full-time dedication regime for research, the nuclear issue focused, mainly

This kind of cortical organization, termed canonical circuit, has been functionally demonstrated primarily by studies involving visual striate cortex, and then, the concept has been extended to different cortical areas. In brief, the canonical circuit is composed of superficial pyramidal neurons of layers II/III receiving different inputs and deep pyramidal neurons of layer V that are responsible for cortex output. Superficial and deep pyramidal neurons are reciprocally connected, and inhibitory interneurons participate in modulating the activity of the circuit. The main intuition of this model is that the entire cortical network could be modeled as the repetition of relatively simple modules composed of relatively few types of excitatory and inhibitory, highly interconnected neurons. We will review the origin and the application of the canonical cortical circuit model in the six sections of this paper. The first section (The origins of the concept of canonical circuit: the cat visual cortex reviews the experiments performed in the cat visual cortex, from the origin of the concept of canonical circuit to the most recent developments in the modelization of cortex. The second (The canonical circuit in neocortex and third (Toward a canonical circuit in agranular cortex sections try to extend the concept of canonical circuit to other cortical areas, providing some significant examples of circuit functioning in different cytoarchitectonic

Hibernating Stellar Magnet ESO PR Photo 31/08 The Hibernating Stellar Magnet This weird object initially misled its discoverers as it showed up as a gamma-ray burst, suggesting the death of a star in the distant Universe. But soon afterwards, it exhibited some unique behaviour that indicates its origin is much closer to us. After the initial gamma-ray pulse, there was a three-day period of activity during which 40 visible-light flares were observed, followed by a brief near-infrared flaring episode 11 days later, which was recorded by ESO's Very Large Telescope. Then the source became dormant again. "We are dealing with an object that has been hibernating for decades before entering a brief period of activity", explains Alberto J.

    Introduction: There are many diseases associated with variations in the expression of apoptosis such as organ rejection after transplantation, myocardial ischemia or infarct and neurodegenerative diseases. For this reason, the early visualization of this process is relevant to set fast and effective therapeutic strategies. Methods: The precursor was prepared according to the procedure reported by R. Alberto, R. Schibli, P. Schubiger, U. Abram, and T. Kaden [Reactions with the technetium and rhenium carbonyl complexes (NEt{sub 4})[MX{sub 3}(CO){sub 3}]. Synthesis and structure of Tc(CN-But){sub 3}(CO){sub 3}](NO{sub 3}) and (Net{sub 4})[Tc{sub 2}({mu}-SCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OH){sub 3}(CO){sub 3}], Polyhedron 1996;15: 1079-89]. Recombinant annexin V was incubated with [{sup 99m}Tc](H{sub 2}O)3(CO){sub 3}{sup +} solution, previously neutralized with buffer. Biodistribution studies were performed in 8-week-old female Wistar rats. Animals were housed and treated in compliance with institutional guidelines related to animal experimentation. Work protocol was previously approved by the Animal Ethics Committee of the university. Two groups of rats were defined. One was used as control and the other group was previously injected with 150 mg/kg ip of cyclophosphamide to induce apoptosis. Results: The synthesis of carbonyl precursor achieved yields higher than 90%, and the radiolabeled protein was obtained with 92% of radiochemical purity and high stability in vitro. An important uptake in apoptotic tissues was confirmed by biodistributions, scintigraphic images and histological studies. Conclusions: Biodistribution studies revealed hepatobiliary elimination, high stability in vivo and important uptake in the reticuloendothelial system. In the pathologic model, higher uptake values correspond to the liver, spleen, lungs and femur. Histological studies confirmed the development of apoptosis at 8 and 24 h postinduction in the spleen and lymphocyte bulks in the peribronchial area

    Full Text Available Ramón Alberto Tamayo-Isla, Mauro Cuba de la Cruz Internal Medicine Department, Pietersburg Provincial Hospital, Polokwane Kidney and Dialysis Centre, Limpopo Province, South Africa Introduction: Calciphylaxis is a rare medical condition that is usually diagnosed in patients suffering from end-stage renal disease who are already receiving renal replacement therapy and in those post-transplantation. The pathogenesis still remains to be fully elucidated; hence, the treatment is not uniform. The prognosis is generally poor. The ulcerative stage exhibits a worse prognosis than the nonulcerative one. Calciphylaxis presenting in terminal kidney disease prior to dialytic treatment has only rarely been reported. Case presentation: A 32-year-old female Caucasian clerk sought medical attention for increasing tiredness and lower limb skin ulcers. Polycystic kidney disease was diagnosed in her late father and two of her siblings. At the first nephrology consultation, obesity, pallor, bilateral flank masses with ballottement, and two ulcers with a dark necrotic center on the distal left leg were noted. In addition, another indurated light bluish lesion of 5 cm just above the right knee with intact skin was observed. All lesions were very tender and warm on touch. Laboratory results yielded hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, anemia, and parathyroid hormone levels that were more than ten times the normal values in the patient, and with a glomerular filtration rate of 4 mL/minute. Skin biopsy confirmed the suspicion of calciphylaxis. The patient was placed on peritoneal dialysis with low Ca concentration baths, cinacalcet, and aluminum hydroxide. The results included correction of hypercalcemia, improvement of phosphate levels, and the product of both Ca and phosphate, but only a transitory decrease in serum parathyroid hormone levels. The ulcerations were completely healed after 2 months of treatment. Cinacalcet was discontinued after 18 months, but multiple

    The annual meetings, organized by the Brazilian materials research society - B-MRS, are amongst the most import discussion forums in the area of materials science and engineering in Brazil, with a growing interest from the national and international scientific society. In the last 4 years, more than 1,500 participants have attended the B-MRS meetings, promoting an auspicious environment for presentation and discussion of scientific and technological works in the materials science area. The XIII Brazilian Materials Research Society Meeting was held from 28 September to 02 October, 2014, in João Pessoa, PB, Brazil. The Meeting congregated more than 1650 participants from the whole of Brazil and from 28 other countries. More than 2100 abstracts were accepted for presentation, distributed along 19 Symposia following the format used in traditional meetings of Materials Research Societies. These involved topics such as: synthesis of new materials, computer simulations, optical, magnetic and electronic properties, traditional materials as clays and cements, advanced metals, carbon and graphene nanostructures, nanomaterials for nanostructures, energy storage systems, composites, surface engineering and others. A novelty was a symposium dedicated to innovation and technology transfer in materials research.
