    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.

    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.

  16. 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.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo trata de mostrar cómo el expresidente peruano Alberto Fujimori pasó del triunfo democrático en las elecciones de 1990, en un ambiente de total publicidad, al progresivo control autoritario de las relaciones políticas caracterizado por el aumento del secreto. Esta "transición autoritaria" ha dejado su registro público, pese a las estrategias de ocultamiento, en los mensajes que el presidente de la república dirigió a la nación cada 28 de julio con motivo de la celebración de la Independencia. En los once mensajes que dirigió Fujimori al país, se encuentran las marcas de su estrategia política general: la consolidación de su imagen de salvador de la nación con la anuencia del pueblo; el fortalecimiento de las instancias ejecutivas del Estado sin necesidad de fiscalización política o judicial, y la polarización de las identidades políticas en una supuesta comunicación directa entre el presidente y las mayorías del Pení. Mediante el análisis sistemático de los mensajes presidenciales, se describe cómo el presidente Fujimori ejerció el discurso político como acción privilegiada durante sus años de gobierno para buscar una legitimidad que prescindiera de la deliberación política

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marco Aurélio Coelho de Paiva

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available A partir da análise do livro de estreia de Alberto Rangel, Inferno verde, publicado em 1908, o artigo busca identificar as motivações e os constrangimentos presentes no processo criativo do autor quanto à formulação de uma representação da Amazônia como sertão. A sua filiação ao estilo de Euclides da Cunha e a sua vinculação ao aparato administrativo estatal quando da sua presença na região confluíram para uma ideia de região então assentada em seu aspecto infernista. O entendimento da realidade nacional a partir dos sertões fez com que a Amazônia fosse tomada pelo autor como um mundo relegado ao esquecimento. Uma interpretação dos diferentes contos do livro e a identificação de uma representação infernista da Amazônia só poderão ser logradas caso leve-se em consideração os aspectos vinculados aos anseios e angústias de Alberto Rangel em tornar-se um escritor e ser reconhecido como tal.Based on the book debut of Alberto Rangel, Inferno Verde (Green Hell, published in 1908, this article investigates the motivations and constraints present in the author's creative process, regarding the representation of the Amazon as sertão (backlands. His adherence to the style of Euclides da Cunha, and his relationship with the state administrative apparatus when he was in the region, contributed to the idea of what seemed to be a hellish aspect of the Amazon. In his understanding of the national reality, in relation to the backlands, the author saw the Amazon as a forgotten world. For a different interpretation of the stories in the book, and the recognition of this hellish representation of the Amazon, it is necessary to take into consideration the aspects related to the aspirations and anxieties of Alberto Rangel on becoming a writer and to be recognized as such.

    Full Text Available Si bien la influencia de Gregorio Magno fue decisiva para la historia del pensamiento teológico práctico en la Edad Media, siendo Gregorio el autor más citado en la STh de Tomás de Aquino después de Agustín, su influencia sobre Alberto Magno no ha sido estudiada recientemente. En efecto, Alberto Magno orienta su Comentario al Corpus Dionisiacum de la misma manera que Gregorio por la revelación de este misterio, que busca entender racionalmente. El estudio se detiene en las citas tomadas por el Doctor Universalis de los Moralia en SMT II, la Ep I, la Ep V y la Ep IX, para descubrir cuál es, concretamente, la influencia de Gregorio Magno sobre Alberto Magno en la intelección del problema razón y revelación.Although the influence of Gregory Magnus was crucial for the history of practical theological thought in the Middle Ages -being the most cited author in Thomas Aquinas' STh after Augustine- his influence over Albertus Magnus has not been studied recently. In effect, Albertus Magnus's Commentary on Corpus Di-onysiacum is guided, in the same way as Gregory, by the revelation of this mystery, which he seeks to understand rationally. This study focuses on the citations from the Moralia that Doctor Universalis uses in SMT II (Super Mysticam Theologiam Dionysii, the Ep. I, the Ep.V and the Ep.

In his obstinate renunciation to unnecessary words, or surplus signs, and by employing graphic devices that convey a "telluric and formless" world, Breccia interprets and illustrates – without making it comprehensible – the self-destructive delirious state of Fernando Vidal, one of the most controversial and fascinating characters in Argentinian literature. In particular, the essay focuses on the conspiracy – at the level of both form and content – and on the graphic (untranslatability of his delirium.

    Full Text Available Alberto Magno ha ofrecido elementos de juicio suficientes que permiten reconstruir una Filosofía Política en su obra teológica y filosófica. 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.

  12. 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.

    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.

Uma das linhas teóricas centrais do debate refere-se ao conceito de racionalidade, tendo sido preocupação central em Weber, Mannheim, Horkheimer, Adorno e outros. Alberto Guerreiro Ramos, expoente sociólogo brasileiro da segunda metade do século XX, propõe uma crítica da modernidade pela perspectiva de sua racionalidade organizacional, condensada em sua Teoria da Síndrome Comportamentalista. Essa teoria tenta compreender os fundamentos e as dimensões básicas da razão moderna: Individualismo, Perspectivismo, Formalismo e Operacionalismo.

    Full Text Available La alteridad constituye una realidad compleja, que desde siempre suscita interés, debido a que su extraña densidad conceptual tiene una singular repercusión vital. Si bien ella emerge con fuerza del Comentario de Alberto a la Mystica Theologiae de Dionisio, sigue siendo un misterio, que se articula desde la complejidad de la presencia del Dios oculto hasta su mayor profundidad en la simplicidad de la inexistencia de una persona divina en la otra, origen último de todo otro que anticipa al sujeto y lo constituye en su mismidad, semejante a como el maestro se relaciona con el discípulo, en cuanto expresión de la relación del Hijo para con el Padre en el Espíritu. Como tal, la argumentación puesta a descubierto en el presente estudio responde a las aporías que los recientes estudios de Edouard Henry Weber y William Hoye dejaron abiertas, cuando se centran o en el amor o en la razón, sin que logren articular la in-existencia de aquel en ella, constituyendo así el misterio de la alteridad la solución del problema planteado, es decir, para Alberto, el intelecto es amorAlterity constitutes a complex reality, one that has always aroused interest, owing to a singular vital repercussion of its strange conceptual density. Although it emerges strongly in Albert's commentary on Dionysius' Mystica Theologiae, it continues being a mystery that articulates itself from the complexity of the presence of the hidden God up to its greatest profundity in the simplicity of the "in-existence" of one divine person in the other, ultimate origin of every other that anticipates the subject and constitutes it in its selfness, similar to how the teacher relates to his or her disciple, inasmuch as it is an expression of the relation of the Son towards the Father in the Spirit. As such, the argument placed before us in this present study responds to the aporias that the recent studies by Edouard-Henry Weber and William Hoye left open, when they are centered either

  18. Conquering space with matter: a technical study of Alberto Burri's materials and techniques

    2016-10-01

    Alberto Burri (1915-1995) was a pioneering Italian painter and sculptor. Born in Città di Castello, a small town in the region of Umbria, he earned a medical degree from the University of Perugia. While serving in the Ethiopian campaign and in World War II, first as a frontline soldier and then as a physician, he was captured and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp in Hereford, Texas. It was there that Burri disavowed the medical profession and began to paint. He held a pivotal position in the modern post-war era, exhibiting in Rome and New York in the early 1950s. The present article describes an in-depth scientific investigation of a selection of 14 paintings by Burri, each belonging to one of his series: Sacchi (sacks), Bianchi (whites), Catrami (tars), Muffe (molds), Gobbi (hunchbacks), Legni (woods), Combustioni plastiche (plastic combustions), Ferri (irons), Cretti (monochromatic fields of induced craquelure), and Cellotex (compositions on flayed fiberboard). Elemental information obtained non-invasively via X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy was here combined with detailed characterization of the pigments, extenders, binders, and plastics by means of micro-invasive techniques, including pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS), Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopies, and scanning electron microscopy/energy-dispersive X-ray (SEM/EDX) spectroscopy. Through the joint use of traditional artists' materials along with industrial products newly introduced to the market, Burri appears to have encapsulated space into highly dramatic compositions at the boundaries between painting and relief sculpture.

    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.

    Full Text Available La tesis de este ensayo postula que la narrativa de Alberto Fuguet puede ser leída como un proyecto escriturario que propone una (nueva estrategia retórica por la cual representar los desvíos del género sexual. Según este modus operandi, en las narraciones de Fuguet, tanto el acto de reprimir como el de explicitar los desvíos de la masculinidad, se ejecutan a través de un juego de citas a la tradición literaria chilena. En los textos de José Donoso, Jorge Edwards y Alfredo Gómez Morel, entre otros, los narradores personajes de Fuguet encuentran un conjunto de figuras retóricas que les permite decir su desvío, pero de manera oblicua; es decir, cifrando la voluptuosidad de sus deseos en la lengua culturalmente prestigiosa del Canon de las Letras de Chile. Dentro de este contexto, este ensayo pesquisa las citas que los primeros trabajos de Fuguet (Sobredosis y Mala onda hacen de Casa de campo y El jardín de al lado, de José Donoso, y El río, de Alfredo Gómez Morel.This essay proposes that Alberto Fuguet s narrative may be read as a writing project with a (new rhetorical strategy by which various sexual deviances may be represented By this modus operandi, in Fuguet's stories, both manifestation and repression of male deviance are made explicit by way of a 'quotation game' in the field of Chilean literary tradition. The narrators in his texts find in the narrative of José Donoso, Jorge Edwards and Alfredo Gómez Morel, among others, a corpus of rhetorical figures which allow them to make their deviance explicit in an oblique way; that is, to condense their voluptous desire in the prestigious language of the Chilean Literary Canon. Within this context, this essay explores the quotations of Donoso 's Casa de Campo and El Jardin de al lado, and those quotations of Alfredo Garcia Morel's El río present in Alberto Fuguet's first works (Sobredosis y Mala Onda.

    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

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. Several aspects of his trajectory as a scientist, activist and teacher are examined. 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.

    Alessandra Diazzi

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available This essay aims to investigate Alberto Moravia’s novel L’uomo che guarda (1985 through a psychoanalytic understanding of desire, specifically employed as an interpretive device. By primarily speaking of desire from a Lacanian perspective, I will focus in particular on Massimo Recalcati’s further elaborations of Lacan's theory, with special regard to his notion of 'hyper-modernity'. At the same time, by attempting a structural analysis of the novel, I will interpret desire as a drive that shape and organize the plot, following Peter Brook’s seminal work Reading for the plot. My reading allows therefore to see desire as an interpretive device reassessing Moravia's novel in both thematic and structural terms. More specifically, the analysis of the main characters in the light of this perspective will enable a shift in interpretation from the level of the plot to a deeper inquiry into issues of social and generational conflict, thereby enabling a new reading of the novel in the light of the ideological, political and intellectual turmoil occurred in Italy between the Sixties and the Seventies.

    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.

    Full Text Available : La teología del Cuerpo Místico de Cristo ocupó un lugar central en el pensamiento de san Alberto Hurtado. En las distintas etapas de su vida desarrolló una antropología a partir del Cuerpo Místico: el hombre está llamado a ser hijo de Dios, basta ser hombre para poder pertenecer al Cuerpo Místico, Cristo está presente en los pobres y la unidad de todos los hombres en Cristo. Este estudio muestra la influencia de Columba Marmión en nuestro autor. Esta antropología teológica es el fundamento de su moral social: la dignidad de la persona humana está fundamentada en la encarnación del Verbo. La opción por los pobres y la solidaridad social son parte de la ética social que el padre Hurtado ha fundamento con su teología del Cuerpo Místico de Cristo.The theology of the Christ Mystical Body has occupied a principal place in St. Alberto Hurtado's thought. He developed an anthropology from the Mystical Body in the different moments of his life: the man is called to be a children of God, that is enough to be a man to be able to belong at de Mystical Body, that Christ is present in the poors, and the unity of all men in Christ. This investigation shows the influence of Columba Marmión in our author. The theological anthropology is the foundation of his social morality: the dignity of human person is based in the incarnation of the Word. The option for the poors and social solidarity are part of the social ethics that padre Hurtado has based with his theology of the Christ Mystical Body.

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.

  7. 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.

  12. 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

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.

    Full Text Available O ensaio teórico apresenta a proposta de Alberto Guerreiro Ramos sobre redução sociológica, na dimensão de método histórico e atitude parentética, como sugestão de tema aos estudos sobre o campo científico da administração pública no Brasil. Procuramos dialogar com duas questões: “De que modo podemos desenvolver um entendimento mais sistemático da administração pública nacional?” e “O que precisamos (reconhecer para que o campo da administração pública nacional seja mais responsivo, correspondendo melhor aos anseios públicos locais?”. Seguindo Guerreiro Ramos, sugerimos que o campo estudado lance mão do uso metodológico da história e da ação parentético-substantiva. O primeiro diz respeito à assimilação crítica da produção intelectual estrangeira que permitiria a uma comunidade não se servir exclusivamente de experiências de outras comunidades na realização de seu projeto histórico. O segundo está relacionado com um posicionamento lúcido e ativo dos seres humanos em relação aos fatores que os condicionam, permitindo um ajustamento ativo deles na sociedade e, sobretudo, nas organizações econômicas. Eis as sugestões propostas por este trabalho: reavivar a necessidade de os pesquisadores brasileiros utilizarem conhecimento e produções científicas estrangeiras de maneira subsidiária, uma vez que há intenção primeira de atender às necessidades de uma realidade que, em muitos pontos, se apresenta de modo distinto das realidades em que as teorias/modelos surgiram; e fomentar a visão parentético-substantiva dos indivíduos para a construção de modelos de organização que, embora não excluam, façam com que modelos econômicos organizacionais dividam espaços com modelos mais voltados a garantir qualidade de vida, autorrealização, interação social primária, satisfações sociais e participação na produção de bens públicos.

    Full Text Available After the publication of the paper by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, two Italian researchers currently active in Australia, entitled After birth abortion: Why Should the baby live?, published in 2012, there was a great debate among scholars and journalists that induced many people to rethink the current conditions of life and death. The mass media have reported a strong controversy on this topic. Fitting into this heated exchange of views, the University Orientale of Naples, in the presence of the authors of the paper, hosted a seminar organized by CIRB (Centro Interuniversitario di Ricerca Bioetica of Naples to reflect on post-birth abortion, which was attended by doctors, lawyers and philosophers. The meeting generated an interesting discussion on the main topics of bioethics, but left many unanswered questions.

    Zancari was born in 1278 and practised medicine in Ravenna and Bologna. He is mentioned in the Decameron of Boccaccio and in court records of Bologna in connection with 4 of his students who were accused of exhuming a body for medical research. Zancari's writings are found in several manuscript versions and include commentaries on Galen and Consilium ad Calcolum, which deals with renal calculosis. His therapeutic rules are summarized in 74 lines and cover both acute and quiescent calculi and prevention. The treatments prescribed do not differ from those in general use at the time, nor are any new concepts introduced.

  8. 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.)

  9. Disturbance attenuation for uncertain control systems with contributions by Alberto Isidori and Dietrich Flockerzi

    CERN Document Server

    Knobloch, Hans Wilhelm

    2014-01-01

      This book presents a survey on recent attempts to treat classical regulator design problems in case of an uncertain dynamics. It is shown that source of the uncertainty can be twofold: (i) The system is under the influence of an exogenous disturbance about which one has only incomplete - or none - information. (ii) A portion of the dynamical law is unspecified - due to imperfect modeling. Both cases are described by the state space model in a unified way “Disturbance Attenuation for Uncertain Control Systems” presents a variety of approaches to the design problem in the presence of a (partly) unknown disturbance signal. There is a clear philosophy underlying each approach which can be characterized by either one of the following terms: Adaptive Control, Worst Case Design, Dissipation Inequalities.  .

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 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.

    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.

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

Este artículo revisa un conjunto de producciones cinematográficas de exploradores europeos sobre América, a inicios del siglo XX, que evidencian esta perspectiva. 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.

    Full Text Available A dispersão de sementes de vegetais exóticos por animais nativos é um dos fatores associados a invasões biológicas. 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. Aiming to contribute to the understanding of establishment of this relationship, the objectives of this

    Problem. In recent years, great interest has focused on the effect of ocean bottom elasticity (i.e. shear waves in the ocean floor) on the propagation loss in the water column. The simple two-layer propagation model by Pekeris^1 which treats the ocean bottom as a fluid, has been generalized in this respect by Chapman et al^2, introducing shear into the bottom layer.^3 In this paper, the existence of a Stoneley-Scholte interface wave has been pointed out, by finding a pole in the complex -frequency plane corresponding to this mode, in addition to the propagating normal mode solutions trapped in the water column. Subsequently, experiments and analysis ^{4,5} have been directed toward the problem of ocean sound propagation over an elastic ocean floor covered by an elastic sediment layer (i.e. the three layer problem), and the existence of apparent resonance's of the sound field caused by the sediment layer has been pointed out.^6 In the mentioned studies, no account has been given to the the wave mode types, the contribution of the existing resonance's from the individual wave modes, and their effects on the propagation loss. Purpose. The purpose of this research is to carry out a detailed study of the types of wave modes that exist in the elastic layered problem, their relative strengths, and their sensitivity (e.g. change in multiplicity) to variations in the frequency of the sound field. Special attention will be focused on identifying the mode types, the resonance behavior associated with the mode types, and the resulting effects on the propagation loss in the water column. Methodology. A Thomson^7 -Haskell^8 type normal mode formulation (expanding upon the models developed by Miller and Arvelo ^3) will be used to find the complex eigenvalues of the three layered fluid-elastic problem, including the Stoneley, Scholte, and Love type wave modes. The properties of the individual wave mode types will subsequently be determined by evaluating the corresponding mode

    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.

    In Peru, the industry's development has made economic improvements but at the same time, it has had a major impact on the health of the workers; for that reason, it was necessary to generate control mechanisms. So, in 1940 it was created the Departmento de Higiene Industrial, which in 1956 was changed to Instituto de Salud Ocupacional, but it was deactivated in 1994. However, in 2001 it reappeared into the Ministerio de Salud organizational structure with the name of Instituto de Salud Ocupacional "Alberto Hurtado Abadía". Actually, it is the Centro Nacional de Salud Ocupacional y Protección del Ambiente para la Salud (CENSOPAS), organ of the Instituto Nacional de Salud which continues working in synergy with other institutions and sectors, making research to protect the health of exposed persons (workers and community) to contamination and risks associated with economic activities.

    Full Text Available Cuando a fines de 1941 el Padre Alberto Hurtado publicó su libro "¿Es Chile un País Católico?", invitaba especialmente a los jóvenes de la Acción Católica a conocer el país real: ¿cómo era de verdad Chile y su Iglesia? 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". La polémica de fondo era una sorda crítica a Hurtado, asesor nacional de los jóvenes de la Acción Católica. El artículo muestra la polémica en torno al libro y a su autor, los diferentes actores que intervinieron y la significación eclesial de todo el proceso: ¿Era Chile un país católico?When at the end of 1941 Father Alberto Hurtado Publisher his book, "¿Es Chile un País Católico?"

    Full Text Available Inquiry about the relations between the paratexts (prefaces, “foreword to the reader” etc. and the main narrative of French novelists of the XVIIIth century, in a moment of auto-legitimation of the novel as genre. 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.

Based on an analysis of the writings of Nelson Werneck Sodré and Alberto Pasos Guimarães, the objective of this work is to identify Sodré and Guimarães main arguments with relation to the historical context in which their works were produced, based on an analysis of their writings. This leads to a discussion around the topics explored by these authors regarding the farmer and the landholding elites, the differences between them, their links to contemporary society, and the readings of the past that legitimated or seemed to legitimate the production of their historic writings.

  4. Peru struggles to maintain crude production

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1991-01-14

    Revival of Peru's moribund oil and gas industry in the 1990s hinges on whether the new administration of President Alberto Fujimori is successful in attracting foreign investment in Peru. Fujimori's success would mean Peru pushing ahead into stepped up exploration and major development projects, such as the huge Camisea gas/condensate field discovered 2 years ago. His failure could mean Peru continuing to fall further behind in its already lagging low oil production. Huge sums of money will be needed. Peru also needs to succeed in its efforts to become creditworthy again for international agencies, foreign governments, and commercial banks. Meanwhile, Petroleos del Peru SA (Petroperu), the state oil company, will have to transfer an increasing share of its operations to private investors. But the company is likely to try to hold onto producing fields, even though it is unable to maintain full output.

    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 project has a target audience of 420 agents, 60 of them have already been trained in a pilot project . The results indicate that the topics of training were adequate and the agents have expanded their knowledge. On the other hand, the information passed on to communities by agents, recognized by this population as ' the most reliable people', is of greater credibility and likelihood of success in communicating important issues for the population living in the vicinity of the CNAAA.

    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.

  4. Peru steps up push to attract oil investment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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

    Full Text Available Alberto Cavalcanti was one of the most influential “avant-garde” artists in the Paris of the 1920s. After four years working as a set designer and an assistant director in French cinematographic fiction, he directed what is considered by many movie theorists his masterpiece: “Rien que les heures” (1926. The “fictional documentary”, as the director classifies it, is strictly related to his theory about the “medium” written from 1920 to 1950 and latter published in the book “Filme e Realidade” (1953. In this article, I intent to discuss this connection, as well as to think about the place this motion picture occupies in the “avant-garde” cinema.

    In Peru, the industry's development has made economic improvements but at the same time, it has had a major impact on the health of the workers; for that reason, it was necessary to generate control mechanisms. So, in 1940 it was created the Departmento de Higiene Industrial, which in 1956 was changed to Instituto de Salud Ocupacional, but it was deactivated in 1994. However, in 2001 it reappeared into the Ministerio de Salud organizational structure with the name of Instituto de Salud Ocupacional "Alberto Hurtado Abadía". Actually, it is the Centro Nacional de Salud Ocupacional y Protección del Ambiente para la Salud (CENSOPAS), organ of the Instituto Nacional de Salud which continues working in synergy with other institutions and sectors, making research to protect the health of exposed persons (workers and community) to contamination and risks associated with economic activities.

  16. Yes, the baby should live: a pro-choice response to Giubilini and Minerva.

    Manninen, Bertha Alvarez

    2013-05-01

    In their paper 'After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?' Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva argue that because there are no significant differences between a fetus and a neonate, in that neither possess sufficiently robust mental traits to qualify as persons, a neonate may be justifiably killed for any reason that also justifies abortion. To further emphasise their view that a newly born infant is more on a par with a fetus rather than a more developed baby, Giubilini and Minerva elect to call this 'after-birth abortion' rather than infanticide. In this paper, I argue that their thesis is incorrect, and that the moral permissibility of abortion does not entail the moral permissibility of 'after-birth' abortion.

    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.

  5. Rojas Zorrilla ante la crítica romántica

    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

Both groups of samples were processed with the conventional technique of paraffin embedding and staining with hematoxylin-eosin. Results. Hp was found in 56.9% of the group of biopsies which were inmediatly fixed and in 79.2% of the group of biopsies fixed after 24 hours, showing statistical difference (p <0.001. Conclusions. There is an increased frequency of diagnosis of Hp in the samples that were fixed after 24 hours, which may suggest that this would act as a biological culture for Hp, which would facilitate its diagnosis.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En este trabajo se exploran cuáles fueron las principales variables que influyeron en el ascenso, mantenimiento y caída de Alberto Fujimori, el líder antipolítico más exitoso de América Latina y cuyos designios marcaron la década de 1990 en Perú. 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

  15. High Sensitivity Gravity Measurements in the Adverse Environment of Oil Wells

    Pfutzner, Harold

    2014-03-01

    Bulk density is a primary measurement within oil and gas reservoirs and is the basis of most reserves calculations by oil companies. The measurement is performed with a gamma-ray source and two scintillation gamma-ray detectors from within newly drilled exploration and production wells. This nuclear density measurement, while very precise is also very shallow and is therefore susceptible to errors due to any alteration of the formation and fluids in the vicinity of the borehole caused by the drilling process. Measuring acceleration due to gravity along a well provides a direct measure of bulk density with a very large depth of investigation that makes it practically immune to errors from near-borehole effects. Advances in gravity sensors and associated mechanics and electronics provide an opportunity for routine borehole gravity measurements with comparable density precision to the nuclear density measurement and with sufficient ruggedness to survive the rough handling and high temperatures experienced in oil well logging. We will describe a borehole gravity meter and its use under very realistic conditions in an oil well in Saudi Arabia. The density measurements will be presented.

    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)

    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.

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available The essay is intended to highlight the links between Samonà and the "Roman School", in part already analyzed in previous studies. In particular, we contextualize the six letters addressed to Gustavo Giovannoni between late 1929 and mid-1930, preserved in the Giovannoni Archive (Rome, Centro di Studi per la Storia dell’Architettura and listed in full in the appendix. The letters are mainly related to the studies of Samonà on late Renaissance architecture in Sicily, conducted in 1927 at the suggestion of Ernesto Calandra, which would then be gathered into four essays published between 1932 and 1935, profoundly influenced by the historical-critical ‘giovannoniano’ method. The epistolary contacts with Giovannoni, as well as promoting cultural growth and the rise of the career of teaching, not well structured at the time, show his attempt to get closer to Rome. This is evidenced by repeated references in the letters to Alberto Calza Bini, who was to assist him in obtaining a position at the University of Naples and who, together with Giovannoni and Piacentini, ruled in favor of Samonà in design competitions in the thirties, especially for the Post Office building in the Appio neighborhood in Rome.

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

    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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

    Alberto Fragio is currently one of the major experts on Hans Blumenberg's work and thought. In recent years he has become a great interpreter of Blumenberg's posthumous publications and his Nachlaβ at the Deutsche Literatur-Archiv Marbach (DLA Marbach). Since he acquired his doctoral degree in 2007, Fragio has devoted much of his efforts to clarifying Blumenberg's convoluted philosophical corpus, whose understanding - as is known - is really demanding for anyone who ventures into its disclosure, and it requires a monumental exercise of patience. Fragio has published far more than a dozen academic articles and three monographs, all of them generally pointing to the existence of a holistic nature in the philosophical work to which Blumenberg devoted a lifetime. Although his research project was on Blumenberg's History and Philosophy of Science, his joint publication with Giordano Bruno, Hans Blumenberg, Nuovi paradigmi d'analisi(2010), and the publication of what is the first enquiry into Blumenberg's History of Astronomy, Destrucción, cosmos, metáfora.

    Full Text Available This study aims to examine the treatment of linguistic variation in Brazilian Portuguese textbooks for High School and prompts a debate about concepts like right and wrong, language variation, language change and language prejudice. In this sense, it considers whether the textbook discusses the linguistic variation, understanding it as a result of a variety of sociocultural factors of a linguistic community. Our corpus consists of a collection of Portuguese Language for High School, prepared by Carlos Alberto Faraco, approved by the National Textbook Program (PNLD 2015. The research is part of the dialogue between Sociolinguistics and mother tongue teaching, more specifically, in theoretical and methodological studies of Bortoni-Ricardo (2004, Faraco (2004, Alkmim (2005, Labov (2008, among others, in addition to the National Curriculum Parameters of High School Portuguese Language – PCN (BRASIL, 2000. The methodology is based on descriptive, bibliographical and documentary research and a qualitative approach. The results show, that the current development, in that collection highlights a concern to incorporate linguistic studies in the heterogeneity and linguistic diversity from sociolinguistic perspective.

Desde la aprobación de la ?Ley de Interpretación Auténtica? en 1996, hasta el descubrimiento de la venta clandestina de armas a las FARC y la propalación del célebre video en septiembre de 2000, el gobierno de Fujimori se vio seriamente cuestionado por una creciente oposición interna manifestada, sobre todo, en la movilización de importantes sectores sociales y políticos. El autor plantea que esta última se constituyó en el elemento definitorio de la salida de la dictadura, ya que contribuyó a profundizar la crisis en la fase terminal del régimen.

    Full Text Available This work is a reading of the novel A Selva, by the Portuguese writer Ferreira de Castro, in a post- colonial perspective. Thus, we observe the look of an European on the colonized (Brazilians, by reversing the roles of the characters Alberto, a Portuguese on the colonized position, and Juca Tristao, as a Brazilian colonizer. We hold our discussions with theorists’ approaches concerned with the study about the Other (Said 2007, Gondim 2007, Pratt 1999. We also dialogue with the works of Cunha (2006 reporting and denouncing the human operating system in the Amazonian rubber plantations; of Emery (1999 about the novel A Selva, and of Tocantins (1999 that discusses about the writer Ferreira de Castro. We observed that the novel is a social denunciation of the exploratory system in the Amazonian rubber plantations of the early twentieth century, as well as spreads out the region. Finally, this study points out the resistance of an European character to be considered as the Other.

    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

El intercambio de epístolas es entre el Dr. Alberto Golding y la Dra. Manman Touchstone, nombres inspirados en la alquimia. Golding es bueno como el oro pero potencialmente maleable; Touchstone, se utilizaba para probar la pureza del oro o la plata, y, en forma figurativa, para comprobar si algo o alguien es genuino. Aparte de alguna crítica al sistema académico, el tema fundamental de estas epístolas es el antifeminismo de la Edad Media haciendo referencia a algunas situaciones de la época contemporánea. Además de los escritos que revelan misoginia se hace referencia y analizan los poemas del siglo XIV sobre Melusina, una bella mujer que se metamorfoseaba en una serpiente

  9. Orphism as a scientific paradigm

    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.

    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.

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.

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

    At the end of January, CERN's guides were rewarded for their devotion to the Laboratory. They have a passion for their work, know CERN inside-out and for 40 years have shown people of all ages and nationalities, from all walks of life, around the Laboratory. Who are they? Why, the CERN guides, of course. On 27 January, ten of CERN's 180 guides received special honours for their impressive number of guided tours in 2003. Presenting the awards in the Microcosm hall, CERN's Director-General Robert Aymar congratulated the winners on the key role they play with respect to the general public. "CERN would be nothing without you who show them its activities," he stressed.

  18. JOURNALISM, SOCIAL NETWORKS AND GLOBAL OCCUPATION MOVEMENTS: A SYSTEMIC CRISIS IN THE CONTEMPORARY SEMIOSPHERE

    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 Alberto Cauli, Giovanni Porru, Matteo Piga, Alessandra Vacca, Grazia Dessole, Alessandro MathieuRheumatology Unit, Department of Medical Sciences, Policlinico of University of Cagliari, Monserrato, ItalyAbstract: Psoriatic arthritis (PsA is a frequent chronic inflammatory disease characterized by joint and skin involvement, and by typical extra-articular manifestations. Although the pathogenesis of PsA is still under investigation, the available evidence suggests the importance of the patient's genetic background, microbial or environmental triggers, and an imbalance in the adaptive and acquired immune system, resulting in the production of inflammatory mediators. New therapeutic approaches have been proposed, among them the use of modulators of intracellular signals and gene transcription such as PDE4-inhibiting compounds, which are able to modulate the activity of transcription factors such as CREB and NF-κB and therefore the synthesis of inflammatory mediators, resulting in immunoregulation. This paper summarizes the mechanism of action of apremilast, a PDE4 inhibitor, and the clinical data available on its clinical efficacy and safety profile in the treatment of PsA patients.Keywords: psoriatic arthritis, apremilast, therapy

Club president Alberto Pace, left, taking a new recruit on his first dive. The CERN scuba club was making waves down at the Varembe swimming pool on Wednesday 15 October. Thirty-six people turned up to the club’s second free trial dive. "It was fantastic," said Jörg, one of the new recruits, after his first ever dive. "I’ve always wanted to try diving and this was a free lesson, so I thought I would come and have a go." Fourteen of the club’s fully qualified instructors were there to give one-on-one tuition. After a first dive in the normal pool the new divers moved into the deep pool.

El general Gustavo Rojas Pinilla había caído ya, y después de que el país fuera gobernado durante un poco más de un año por una Junta Militar, Colombia tenía un nuevo presidente: hacía unos meses quien mandaba en Palacio era el liberal Alberto Lleras Camargo. 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. Flotaba ahora en el ambiente la idea de que Rojas representaba el pasado, la violencia, aquello que Colombia quería dejar atrás. Los ojos estaban puestos en el futuro, en las posibilidades prometidas por el Frente Nacional, iniciado precisamente por el gobierno de Lleras Camargo. No eran buenos tiempos, entonces, para quienes habían trabajado con Rojas. Olía a persecución.

    Full Text Available 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, el estado y la minería han impulsado una satanización de Cajamarca como un espacio cultural atrasado, reacio a las inversiones y al desarrollo. El presente artículo explora el rol que la música viene jugando en la representación de las protestas contra la minería y las actividades musicales y etnomusicológicas se complementan para contrarrestar una imagen demonizada por quienes defienden la inversión minera.

    Full Text Available The work reported in the present paper was performed to honor the centennial of the flight by Alberto Santos Dumont with his 14-Bis aircraft. The paper describes results for a computational fluid dynamics (CFD analysis of the 14-Bis aircraft aerodynamics and flight stability. The 14-Bis aircraft geometry was generated from historical sources and observations. CFD computations were performed using well-established commercial codes for calculation of the historical flight conditions. Simulations considered a Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes formulation, in which turbulence closure was achieved by using Menter's model. The flight conditions investigated were primarily concerned with historical observations regarding flight speeds and the need for a more powerful engine, as well as flight stability characteristics of the 14-Bis airplane, which are unknown up to the present day. The results led to qualitative agreement with historical reports, although quite interesting conclusions could be drawn with regard to the actual aerodynamic flight speeds and the aircraft stability parameters.

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.

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.

Numerous advantages of tricarbonyltechnetium(I) and analogous tricarbonylrhenium(I) cores in radiopharmaceuticals, in particular kinetic inertness of the central metal ions with d{sup 6} electronic configuration, well justify a great research interest in these complexes, especially in those obtained by substitution of a bi- or tridentate chelating ligand for two or three labile water molecules in 1. This interest was manifested e.g. by a significant number of 27 relevant presentations at the recent conference on metal complexes in nuclear medicine. Due to the softness (HSAB concept) of Tc(I) and Re(I) centres, chelators with soft donor atoms are preferred as their ligands. Widely studied in this respect were bi- and tridentate derivatives of pyridine and/or imidazole (aromatic N-donors) with other donor atoms, in particular nitrogen and/or sulphur. The aim of our studies is to find novel ligands that form very stable tricarbonyl complexes of Tc(I) and Re(I), which after further functionalization of the ligand can work as precursors of novel radiopharmaceuticals of the 2{sup nd} generation.

  14. 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.

Assim sendo, é necessário delinear a identidade do homem que rompe as vinculações fáticas com os objetose seres ao redor e se vê como o fundador de si e do mundo. The work by Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1925-1977 and the literary production of Portuguese writer Vergílio Ferreira (1916-1996, initiated with the publication of the novel Mudança, in 1969, present similarities in theme exposition as well as the process of text construction. The works of these two writers are marked by the introspective analysis in which prevail the evidence of life in its course, the feeling of existential loneliness, and the questioning of death. The present article consists in the exposition of the existential course of Lóri in Uma aprendizagem ou O livro dos prazeres, by Clarice Lispector, and Alberto Soares in Aparição, by Vergílio Ferreira. In order to do that, our main theoretical apparatus will be the philosophical treaty Ser e tempo, by Martin Heidegger. According to

Publicado en el semanario Gente en 1969, este experimento de historieta política en un medio que le era naturalmente adverso, inserta en el argumento de la primera versión una serie de lecciones de política aleccionadora, extrañas no sólo a la revista sino también al arte de Breccia que llegará a ser cuestionado por el mismo editor y que derivará en la suspensión de la publicación. Nos proponemos analizar este episodio de “fracaso” en la búsqueda de hacer conducir un mensaje político determinado en un medio de comunicación de masas – reconocido además por su frivolidad - y extraer algunas conclusiones sobre las formas de circulación del sentido en los discursos políticos de los años 60 y 70.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En el artículo se analizan tres hechos de importancia en el desarrollo político del Perú y cómo se interrelacionan en los años 90 durante el régimen de Alberto Fujimori. 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 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?

    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.

Se avanza al concepto de escuela desde el espacio conceptual del mecanicismo, que pasa por las formulaciones de Newton, cuyo modelo del universo domina el pensamiento científico entre la mitad del siglo XVII y el final del siglo XIX, hasta llegar a la física moderna de Einstein, con el surgimiento de las teorías de la relatividad y la física cuántica. Mientras Einstein rompe con la visión mecanicista de la física Newtoniana del siglo XIX, la ciencia biomédica, a través de la educación, permanece atada a esa visión fragmentada de la realidad que ofrecen el síntoma y el órgano. Se describe el cambio de la escuela anatomoclínica a la escuela fisiopatológica en la Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de Antioquia. La Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de Antioquia surgió en 1871 bajo el pénsum de la escuela anatomoclínica de París. Este modelo se extendió hasta 1940, cuando dio el "gran vuelco" hacia la medicina científica, con el laboratorio de anatomía patológica (1943 y el CPC (1944 creados por el Doctor Alfredo Correa Henao y con el desarrollo de la fisiología moderna de la mano de los doctores Alberto Saldarriaga, cirujano de la Escuela de Bernard y Leriche y Antonio Ramírez González.

We undertook this review with the aim of assessing the utility of proteomics in the specialty of obstetrics. We searched the electronic databases of MEDLINE, EBSCOhost, BVS Bireme, and SciELO, using various search terms with the assistance of a librarian. We considered cohort studies, case-control studies, case series, and systematic review articles published until October 2014 in the English or Spanish language, and evaluated their quality and the internal validity of the evidence provided. Two reviewers extracted the data independently, then both researchers simultaneously revised the data later, to arrive at a consensus. The search retrieved 1,158 papers, of which 965 were excluded for being duplicates, not relevant, or unrelated studies. A further 86 papers were excluded for being guidelines, protocols, or case reports, along with another 64 that did not contain relevant information, leaving 43 studies for inclusion. Many of these studies showed the utility of proteomic techniques for prediction, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, monitoring, and prognosis of pre-eclampsia, perinatal infection, premature rupture of membranes, preterm birth, intrauterine growth restriction, and ectopic pregnancy. Proteomic techniques have enormous clinical significance and constitute an invaluable weapon in the management of obstetric disorders that increase maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.Keywords: proteomic techniques, obstetrics, diagnosis, prediction

    Full Text Available Starting from some general thoughts on the relationship discipline-phenomenon within the Bliss bibliographic classification (2. ed., the article offers an overview of the architecture of a specific field: economics. The difficulties in systematizing the discipline, and the quick diffusion of acronyms and new definitions - created by abbreviation or combination of existing words - lead to a full structural revision of the T entry, Economics & Management of economic enterprise, that at the moment is organized into categories, facets, and subfacets, offering a strict citation order. The system has a linear order, a notation to maintain the listing order, and an alphabetic list of the terms. BC2 is the only example of a classifying analytic-concise architecture fully faceted, updated and coherently developed, even though it is few used outside the United Kingdom, and it still lacks a web interface representing the semantic relations of the system. The influence of BC2 structure on computer science is shown by the FATKS project of the University College London, a project that studies the use of analytic-concise classification systems as the basis for digital resources indexing. Moreover, some ongoing experimentations are demonstrating the potential of this classification to be converted into a thesaurus; in addition, a software for supporting the semi-automatic generation of a thesaurus starting from the input files used for producing the classification and the alphabetic list, is under consideration.The author would thank Alberto Cheti, Claudio Gnoli and Anna Lucarelli for the precise reading and valued suggestions.

    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.

The etiology varies; in some cases, pneumoscrotum may be due to life-threatening disease like pneumothorax or Fournier gangrene. Despite this, pneumoscrotum is a rarely debated issue. We present two different cases of pneumoscrotum and a review of the literature. The first case report is about a 29 year old male patient affected by Duchenne syndrome who showed pneumoscrotum after cardiopulmonary resuscitation that was performed for asphyxic crisis and cardiovascular arrest. We carried out local puncture with an 18-gauge needle, and the pneumoscrotum was successfully solved. The second case report is about a 56 year old male with pneumoscrotum due to Fournier gangrene who underwent radical exeresis of all necrotic tissues and drainage. This is why most of the scrotal skin and all of the penis skin were removed; as a result, the testicles, epididymis, and cavernosa corpora were externalized. On postoperative day one, the patient was feverless and underwent hyperbaric chamber therapy. No postoperative complications occurred. Accurate evaluation of the pneumoscrotum is always needed. Despite the benign course of most of the clinically evident pneumoscrotum cases, this condition should never be underestimated. Keywords: cardiopulmonary resuscitation, Fournier gangrene, pneumoscrotum, spontaneous causes

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.

  17. Infanticide: a reply to Giubilini and Minerva.

    Laing, Jacqueline A

    2013-05-01

    Alberto Giubilini and Francesco Minerva's recent infanticide proposal is predicated on their personism and actualism. According to these related ideas, human beings achieve their moral status in virtue of the degree to which they are capable of laying value upon their lives or exhibiting certain qualities or being desirable to third-party family members. This article challenges these criteria, suggesting that these and related ideas are rely on arbitrary and discriminatory notions of human moral status. Our propensity to sleep, fall unconscious, pass out and so on, demonstrates that we often exhibit our status as 'potential persons' who are not in the condition of attributing any value to their own existence. Our abilities, age and desirability can and do fluctuate. The equal dignity principle, distinguished in turn from both the excesses of vitalism and consequentialism, is analysed and defended in the context of human rights logic and law. The normalisation of non- and involuntary euthanasia, via such emerging practices as the self-styled Groningen Protocol, is considered. Substituted consent to the euthanasia of babies and others is scrutinised and the implications of institutionalising non-voluntary euthanasia in the context of financial, research and political interests are considered. The impact on the medical and legal professions, carers, families and societies, as well as public attitudes more generally, is discussed. It is suggested that eroding the value of human life carries with it significant destructive long-term implications. To elevate some, often short-term, implications while ignoring others demonstrates the irrational nature of the effort to institutionalise euthanasia.

    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.

  3. Study of the dispersion of radionuclides in the Ilha Grande Bay - RJ

    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. On the other hand, an uppermost advection process provided 228Ra offshore flux and time of residence of, respectively, 2,26 ± 0,424 x 108Bq.d-1 and 13,08 ± 0,21 days. (author)

Several conditions can cause depression of erythroid progenitor cells: reduction of iron absorption and reuptake, decreased bone marrow activity, reduced endogenous erythropoietin production, and chronic inflammatory state. Anemia’s etiology in CHF is complex and partially understood; it involves several systems including impaired hemodynamic condition, reduced kidney and bone perfusion, increased inflammatory activity, and neurohormonal overdrive. The use of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs such as erythropoietin and its derivatives is recently debated; the last interventional trial seems to demonstrate a neutral or negative effect in the active arm with darbepoetin treatment. The current data is opposite to many single blind studies and previous meta-analysis showing an improvement in quality of life, New York Heart Association class, and exercise tolerance using ESA therapy. These contrasting data raise several concerns regarding the target of hemoglobin levels needing intervention, the exact anemia classification and categorization, and the standardization of hematocrit cutoffs. Some cardiac and systemic conditions (ie, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, prothrombotic status may predispose to adverse events, and ESA administration should be avoided. To prevent the negative effects, high-dosage and chronic administration should be avoided. Clarification of these items could probably identify patients that may benefit from additional iron or ESA treatment. In this review, we discuss the interventional trials made in anemic heart failure patients, the

    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 {sup 58} Co, {sup 60} Co and {sup 54} Mn, which are activated corrosion products from structural materials of the primary system and {sup 134} Cs and {sup 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 {sup 58} Co, {sup 60} Co, {sup 54} Mn, {sup 134} Cs and {sup 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

    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

Despite the availability and efficacy of antihypertensive drugs, most hypertensive patients do not reach the recommended treatment targets with monotherapy, making combination therapy necessary to achieve the therapeutic goal. Combination therapy with 2 or more agents is the most effective method for achieving strict blood pressure goals. Fixed-dose combination simplifies treatment, reduces costs, and improves adherence. There are many drug choices for combination therapy, but few data are available about the efficacy and safety of some specific combinations. Combination therapy of calcium antagonists and inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS are efficacious and safe, and have been considered rational by both the JNC 7 and the 2007 European Society of Hypertension – European Society of Cardiology guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension. The aim of this review is to discuss some relevant issues about the use of combinations with calcium channel blockers and RAAS inhibitors in the treatment of hypertension.Keywords: hypertension, calcium channel blockers, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors, fixed-dose combination, adherence

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.

    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

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

  14. Evaluation of the ICRU operational magnitudes implantation for the photon radiation at the Angra I and Angra II nuclear power plants; Avaliacao da implantacao das grandezas operacionais do ICRU para a radiacao de fotons nas usinas nucleares Angra I e II

    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.

  15. 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.

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

Antipsychotic medication has proven beneficial in reducing psychotic symptoms, but is often not enough to treat cognitive or functional impairments. Residual cognitive impairments are barriers to a patient’s full recovery from schizophrenia. 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

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.

    Full Text Available Este 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? 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 En varios pasajes de la obra de Lévinas vemos que su manera de presentarse frente a lo político es ambigua. O bien, resulta mejor decir que solo en apariencia el "objeto" de lo político en sus reflexiones sobre la justicia y el Estado resultan claras; hay una suerte de equívoco que vale la pena precisar y distinguir. Así, el objetivo central de este trabajo es describir dos momentos políticos en Lévinas leídos en clave Estado, como una figura posible de la política; desentrañamos así la trama anti-política en tanto crítica política al Estado, para llegar a la trama del Estado justo e igualitario, lo que abre nuevas puertas para pensar lo político. A partir de esta descripción reflexionamos, por un lado, una postura crítica frente a las ideas sobre el Estado de Lévinas desde las vinculaciones ético-políticas que hace, tal como la de Alberto Sucasas. Y por otro, en contraposición a éstas, las interesantes y extravagantes lecturas que hace Miguel Abensour de Lévinas creyendo que las relaciones ético-políticas levinasianas aportan a renovar críticamente una nueva figura de Estado dejando el terreno político y estatal abierto a nuevas reflexiones.

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.

    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.

Durer, following the advice of his protector Pirckheimer, elaborated the drawings for Horapollo’s Hieroglyphica, published by Professor George Boas. This visual and semantic vocabulary, of great importance in the History of Art from the Renaissance onward, and specifically in Durer’s graphic art, is evident in the carvings for the Triumphal Arch of Maximilian (1515, studied by Panofsky.

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 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

    On 11 March 2004, the Section of Human Anatomy of Palermo was dedicated and registered to the anatomist Emerico Luna (Palermo 1882-1963) with a ceremony (moderated by Giovanni Zummo) with the participation of institutional personalities and Italian anatomists. Luna, who was an acute morphologist and a scholar of Riccardo Versari (1865-1943), was the continuator of Francesco Todaro's Anatomical School and occupied the Chair at the University of Palermo that had belonged to Levi since 1919. His wide histo-anatomical culture culminates in the collaboration to the "Trattato di Neurologia", the richly composed treatise by Bertelli (1931). Then his studies and his teaching reached to the Anatomia Clinica Regionale (1951). In charge of Histology and Normal Human Anatomy in 1920-21, he became a full professor and a master till 1952. He had so many students: among them Ignazio Fàzzari (1889-1986) who had the chair in the University of Florence, Alberto Monroy who had the charge of Compared Anatomy in the University of Palermo and Arcangelo Pasqualino from Marineo. Luna was co-founder and leader of the "Italian Society of Anatomy". He developed an intense research above all on the nervous system, the connective tissues, the arteries of the brain, and the experimental embryology, developing the radiological and clinical anatomy. He also dedicated himself to literature writing in 1953, among the scientific and literary works, a booklet titled Alla Fiera Delle Fantasie where he discuss the fantasy in a style that recall the literary evasion of the last period of crepuscolarism.

Studies have been conducted to date on the prevalence, or the associated costs, of RA in Italy. Although future changes in the incidence of RA are a matter of debate, the impact of RA on health care costs is expected to grow in coming decades in line with projected increases in life expectancy and in the proportion of elderly people in Italy. It has been estimated that the indirect (productivity loss and informal care and intangible (deterioration in health-related quality of life costs of the disease will contribute to an increase in national health service expenditure, which will correspond to 1% of the total health care costs of the nation in the near future. The introduction of biological agents for the treatment of rheumatic diseases has resulted in an increase in the direct costs of RA; however, economic analyses that exclude indirect costs will underestimate the full economic impact of RA. The effectiveness of innovative therapies in preventing disease progression and functional impairment may, over time, attenuate the cost impact of RA in terms of hospitalizations and work absenteeism. Further research is needed to develop estimates of the economic impact of different therapeutic approaches in patients with RA in Italy, in order to provide tools that can drive the choice of the most cost-effective therapeutic option while maintaining high-quality care

    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

    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

Many factors related to malocclusion have strong influences on the perception of facial esthetics (eg, anterior tooth alignment, tooth shape and position, lip thickness, symmetric gingival or tooth contour, lip profile, and overjet. Many reports have shown that the perception of facial esthetics can influence psychological development from early childhood to adulthood. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of dental malocclusion on self-esteem in a sample of adolescents. Materials and methods: The study population was composed of 516 orthodontically untreated subjects (256 males mean ages 13.75±1.977 years recruited from schools in the Campania region of Italy between January 2011 and July 2011. To evaluate the self-esteem grade in our population, all subjects filled out the Multidimensional Self Concept Scale questionnaire and attended an orthodontic clinical evaluation to estimate dental occlusal aspects. Results: Pearson's analysis shows the relationship in our sample between some occlusal characteristics (crossbite and dental crowding and aspects of self-concept evaluation (social, competence, academic, physical, and global score of the Multidimensional Self Concept Scale questionnaire. Moreover, logistic regression analysis shows the potential role of dental crowding (odds ratio 5.359; 95% confidence interval 3.492–8.225 and crossbite (odds ratio 6.153; 95% confidence

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

ESL is a pro-drug metabolized to its major active metabolite eslicarbazepine. Despite the fact that the exact mechanism of action has not been fully elucidated, it is thought to involve inhibition of voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSC. ESL inhibits sodium currents in a voltage-dependent way by an interaction predominantly with the inactivated state of the VGSC, thus selectively reducing the activity of rapidly firing (epileptic neurons. ESL reduces VGSC availability through enhancement of slow inactivation. In Phase III studies, adjunctive therapy with ESL 800 or 1,200 mg/day leads to a significant decrease in the seizure frequency in adults with refractory partial onset epilepsy. Based on these results, ESL has been approved in Europe (by the European Medicines Agency and in the United States (by the US Food and Drug Administration as add-on therapy. Data on efficacy and safety have been confirmed by 1-year extension and real life observational studies. Recently, based on results from two randomized, double-blind, historical control Phase III trials, ESL received US Food and Drug Administration approval also as a monotherapy for patients with partial onset epilepsy. In the pediatric setting, encouraging results have been obtained suggesting its potential role in the management of epileptic children. Overall ESL was generally well tolerated. The most common adverse events were dizziness, somnolence, headache, nausea

Under this problematic context, several growers in our area proposed alternatives to conduction systems. An innovation was the system of divided canopy “Ramé”, developed by the local viticulture Luis Alberto Ramero. This system was attempted to combine high yield with high quality grape, machanize harvest and good cinditions of canopy microclimate. It's a system of vertical shoot position, with its canopy divided into two planes. These systems are characterized, in our region, by a low foliar surface exposed per hectare, a relatively low productivity (in the case of the VSP or difficulty to mechanize the harvest (in the case of the Parral. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ecophysiology of Rame system, determining if it behaves differently when it is planted with one or two plants by post (Rame single and double. Also the two modalities of Rame were compared with the trellis in VSP. Since this latter system is not included in the statistical, but planted design on the side of the test, the comparison kept a descriptive character. For the Rame we established an experimental trial with statistical design, with two treatments in trellis-training system. A treatment consisted in planting one vine per post, called simple Rame (RS and two vines per post, called double Rame (RD, leaving in this way different number of plants per unit area (1600 plantas / has and 3200 plantas / has respectively. Nevertheless, regardless of the number of plants per hectare, Rame system

Many studies have shown the safety of this type of therapy, although the factors that might affect the tolerability of high-dose sublingual immunotherapy have not been well established. The aim of this study was to determine the factors that affect the tolerability of sublingual allergen immunotherapy.Patients and methods: A total of 183 subjects aged ≥5 years, diagnosed with allergic rhinitis with/without mild to moderate asthma due to sensitization to grass, olive pollen, or mites, were included in this open, retrospective, multicentric, noninterventional study. Sublingual immunotherapy was administered for at least 3 months.Results: The most frequent adverse reaction was oral pruritus (13.7% of the patients. Most of the reactions were local (84.7% and immediate (93.5% and occurred during the initiation phase (60.6%. All reactions were mild to moderate in severity. No serious adverse reactions were registered. When comparing factors with potential influence on the occurrence of adverse reactions, the results between the groups of subjects with and without adverse reactions showed no statistically significant differences in sex (P=0.6417, age (P=0.1801, years since the disease was first

  12. HUBBLE HERITAGE PROJECT'S FIRST ANNIVERSARY

    Science.gov (United States)

    2002-01-01

    HH 32 is an excellent example of a 'Herbig-Haro object,' which is formed when young stars eject jets of material back into interstellar space. This object, about 1,000 light-years from Earth, is somewhat older than Hubble's variable nebula, and the wind from the bright central star has already cleared much of the dust out of the central region, thus exposing the star to direct view. Many young stars, like the central object in HH 32, are surrounded by disks of gas and dust that form as additional material is attracted gravitationally from the surrounding nebula. Material in the disk gradually spirals in toward the star and eventually some of it accretes onto the star, increasing its mass. A fraction of the gas, however, is ejected perpendicularly to the disk at speeds near 200 miles per second, and forms two oppositely directed jets. These jets plow into the surrounding nebula, producing strong shock waves that heat the gas and cause it to glow in the light of hydrogen atoms (green) and sulfur ions (blue), several other atoms and ions, and sometimes radiation from the exciting star that is reflected by the surrounding gas (red). This glow is called a Herbig-Haro object, in honor of astronomers George Herbig and Guillermo Haro, who did much of the early work in this area in the 1950's. The jet on the top side, whose furthest extent is about 0.2 light-year from the star, is pointed more nearly in our direction, while the opposite jet on the bottom lies on the far side of the star and is fainter either because it is partially obscured by dust surrounding the star or because there is much less material in front of the star. The Hubble Heritage team (NASA/AURA/STScI) made this image from observations of Herbig-Haro 32 acquired by Salvador Curiel, Jorge Canto, Alejandro Raga, (UNAM), Alberto Noriega-Crespo (IPAC), and collaborators.

  15. Anhembi magazine and nuclear energy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    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, bombing tests by the

However, in respect to carbamazepine and oxcarbazepine, the active ESL metabolite (eslicarbazepine affects slow inactivation of VGSC and has a similar affinity for the inactivated state and a lower affinity for the resting state of the channel. This new antiepileptic drug has been recently approved in Europe (trade name Zebinix and in the United States (trade name Stedesa for adjunctive treatment in adult subjects with partial-onset seizures, with or without secondary generalization. Following oral administration, ESL is rapidly and extensively metabolized by hepatic esterases to eslicarbazepine. This active metabolite has a linear pharmacokinetic profile, a low binding to plasma proteins (<40%, and a half-life of 20–24 hours and is mainly excreted by kidneys in an unchanged form or as glucuronide conjugates. ESL is administered once a day and has a low potential for drug–drug interactions. Efficacy and safety of this drug in patients with focal seizures have been assessed in four randomized clinical trials, and responder rates (percentage of patients with a ≥50% improvement of their seizures ranged between 17% and 43%. Adverse events were usually mild to moderate, and the most common were dizziness, somnolence, diplopia, abnormal coordination, blurred vision, vertigo, headache, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. ESL may be considered an interesting alternative to current antiepileptic drugs for the treatment of drug-resistant focal

    2016-07-01

    Authors: Carla Braitenberg, Patrizia Mariani, Alberto Pastorutti Department of Mathematics and Geosciences, University of Trieste Via Weiss 1, 34100 Trieste Seismic tomography models result in 3D velocity models of lithosphere and sublithospheric mantle, which are due to mineralogic compositional changes and variations in the thermal gradient. The assignment of density is non-univocal and can lead to inverted density changes with respect to velocity changes, depending on composition and temperature. Velocity changes due to temperature result in a proportional density change, whereas changes due to compositional changes and age of the lithosphere can lead to density changes of inverted sign. The relation between velocity and density implies changes in the lithosphere rigidity. We analyze the GOCE gradient fields and the velocity models jointly, making simulations on thermal and compositional density changes, using the velocity models as constraint on lithosphere geometry. The correlations are enhanced by applying geodynamic plate reconstructions to the GOCE gravity field and the tomography models which places today's observed fields at the Gondwana pre-breakup position. We find that the lithosphere geometry is a controlling factor on the overlying geologic elements, defining the regions where rifting and collision alternate and repeat through time. The study is carried out globally, with focus on the conjugate margins of the African and South American continents. The background for the study can be found in the following publications where the techniques which have been used are described: Braitenberg, C., Mariani, P. and De Min, A. (2013).

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

Patients with type 2 diabetes show a variety of clinical features, including different "phenotypes" of hyperglycemia (eg, fasting/preprandial or postprandial. Thus, the best treatment choice is sometimes difficult to make, and treatment initiation or optimization is postponed. This situation may explain why, despite the existing complex therapeutic armamentarium and guidelines for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, a significant proportion of patients do not have good metabolic control and at risk of developing the late complications of diabetes. The Italian Association of Medical Diabetologists has developed an innovative personalized algorithm for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, which is available online. According to the main features shown by the patient, six algorithms are proposed, according to glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c, ≥9% or ≤9%, body mass index (≤30 kg/m2 or ≥30 kg/m2, occupational risk potentially related to hypoglycemia, chronic renal failure, and frail elderly status. Through self-monitoring of blood glucose, patients are phenotyped according to the occurrence of fasting/preprandial or postprandial hyperglycemia.

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 evaluation of historical information can give valuable insight into past glacier dynamics, especially before the onset of modern measurements. Early photographs and maps depict changes for selected glaciers in southern South America. Within this study, written documents and pictorial historical records (drawings, sketches, engravings, photographs, chronicles, topographic maps) are analysed critically, with a particular focus on two regions: Lago Viedma (El Chaltén, southern Patagonia, 49.5°S, 73.0°W) and the Río Mendoza basin (Mendoza, central Andes, 33.1°S, 69.9°W). For the Lago Viedma area, early historical data for the end of the 19th century stem from the expedition of the Chilean-Argentinean border commission. In addition, the expedition by the German Scientific Society, conducted between 1910 and 1916, and the later photographs by Alberto M. de Agostini give an excellent depiction of the glaciers. Glaciar Viedma is a calving glacier which shows distinct retreat from 1896 until the present (though with a stationary or possibly advancing glacier front between 1930/31 and 1951/52), similar to the neighbouring glaciers. On the contrary, nearby Glaciar Perito Moreno shows an exceptional behaviour: the glacier front has been advancing during the first half of the 20th century, staying in an advanced position until the present. At the beginning of the 20th century, Robert Helbling explored the Argentinean-Chilean Andes together with his friend Friedrich Reichert. In the summer of 1909/10, they started a detailed survey of the highly glacierized Juncal-Tupungato mountains (Río Mendoza basin), leading to the first accurate topographic map of the area published in 1914. Its outstanding quality allows a comparison with contemporary satellite imagery. The area received attention in 1934, when the sudden drainage of a glacier-dammed lake in the upper Río del Plomo valley caused fatalities and considerable damage to constructions and the Transandine Railway.

    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

It is most likely to be a missing link in the family of neutron stars, the first case of an object with an amazingly powerful magnetic field that showed some brief, strong visible-light activity. 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. Castro-Tirado, lead author of a paper in this week's issue of Nature. The most likely candidate for this mystery object is a 'magnetar' located in our own Milky Way galaxy, about 15 000 light-years away towards the constellation of Vulpecula, the Fox. Magnetars are young neutron stars with an ultra-strong magnetic field a billion billion times stronger than that of the Earth. "A magnetar would wipe the information from all credit cards on Earth from a distance halfway to the Moon," says co-author Antonio de Ugarte Postigo. "Magnetars remain quiescent for decades.

The online version of this article has been corrected. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2016-07004-005.) Redundant copying has been proposed as a manner to achieve the high-fidelity necessary to pass on and preserve complex traits in human cultural transmission. There are at least 2 ways to define redundant copying. One refers to the possibility of copying repeatedly the same trait over time, and another to the ability to exploit multiple layers of information pointing to the same trait during a single copying event. Using an individual-based model, we explore how redundant copying (defined as in the latter way) helps to achieve successful transmission. The authors show that increasing redundant copying increases the likelihood of accurately transmitting a behavior more than either augmenting the number of copying occasions across time or boosting the general accuracy of social learning. They also investigate how different cost functions, deriving, for example, from the need to invest more energy in cognitive processing, impact the evolution of redundant copying. The authors show that populations converge either

    In order to understand evolution of life, change of seawater chemistry from Hadean, Archean to present is significant. Pillow structure is well-preserved in the Archean greenstone belt (e.g. Komiya et al., 1999). Oxygen and hydrogen isotope of rims in the pillow is useful conventional tool to decipher chemistry of Paleao-seawater from Archean to Present. However, Archean greenstone belt suffered regional metamorphism from greenschist to Amphibolite facies conditions. Therefore, it is necessary to testify the validity of pillow chemistry from recent (Phanerozoic) metamorphosed greenstone. We have systematically collected pillowed greenstone from blueschist and eclogites. Two eclogite exhibiting pillow structures were chosen for oxygen and hydrogen isotope analysis. One is from Corsica (lawsonite eclogite collected with Dr. Alberto Vidale Barbarone) and another is from Cazadero, Franciscan belt (collected by Dr. Tatsuki Tsujimori). The both are ascribed as MORB from major and trace bulk chemistry and Ca is rich in the core and Na is poor in the rims. The former exhibits garnet, omphacite, lawsonite, and glacophane. Phengite is in core of the pillow and chlorite is in the rims. In the latter, besides garnet, omphacite, epdiote and glaucophane, chlorite is recognized with phengite in the core. Glaucophane is richer in the rims from the both samples, therefore istope analysis of glaucophane was done. Mineral separation was carefully done using micro-mill, heavy liquid and isodynamic separator. 20 mg specimens were used for oxygen isotope analysis and 2mg were for hydrogen analysis. δ18O of the all analysis (7.7 to 8.3) is within the range of unaltered igneous oceanic crust and high temperature hydrothermal alteration although rims (8.3 for Franciscan and 8.0 for Corsica) are higher than cores (7.7 for Franciscan and Corsica). δD data is also consistent with hydrothermal alteration. It is relative higher in core from the Corsica and Franciscan (-45 and -56) than of the

    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}].

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

    Based on the special shape first introduced by Alberto Cellino, which consists of eight ellipsoidal octants with the constraint that adjacent octants must have two identical semi-axes, an efficient algorithm to derive the physical parameters, such as the rotational period, spin axis, and overall shape from either lightcurves or sparse photometric data of asteroids, is developed by Lu et al.[1]. They call this model 'Cellinoid' shape model. Numerical applications confirm that the cellinoid shape model could derive the best-fit rotational period for the asteroid from several lightcurves observed in one apparition. Furthermore by exploiting more lightcurves observed in various viewing circumstances, the derived spin axis could be refined [2]. Additionally the cellinoid shape model is applied to the sparse Hipparcos data with the average number of measurements being of the order of 70 per object, similar to the future catalog of the ongoing space project, Gaia [3]. The derived rotational periods from 70 sparse measurements are accurate and the spin axes are close to the known results, derived from lightcurves by other methods. With only 3 more parameters than the traditional triaxial ellipsoid, the cellinoid shape model of having the asymmetric morphology could perform efficiently and simulate the real asteroids better. That could be employed for the huge number of photometric sparse data observed by Gaia in the coming future. For thoroughly investigating the relationship between the morphology of the synthetic lightcurves generated by the cellinoid shape model and its six semi-axes, the numerical tests are implemented to compare the synthetic lightcurves generated by various cellinoid models. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the stable spin axis of cellinoid shape model with respect to its semi-axes is analyzed, too. These numerical tests provide important information for optimizing the aforementioned algorithm to search the physical parameters for asteroids based on

Thealoz Duo® is a novel artificial tear preparation containing two active ingredients: Trehalose, a naturally occurring disaccharide with anhydrobiotic functions in many organisms, and hyaluronate, a widely distributed anionic glycosaminoglycan polysaccharide with lubricative and water-retaining properties in biological systems. In a randomized, single center, open label, crossover study, 17 adult patients with moderate-to-severe dry eye syndrome were randomized to treatment with Thealoz Duo® (combining trehalose and hyaluronic acid or Systane®. Patients received 7 days of treatment. The primary efficacy variable was patient satisfaction evaluated by a 0–100 visual analog scale evaluated on days 0 and 7 of treatment. Secondary parameters included ocular surface disease index (OSDI, symptoms of dry eye, ocular staining scores (fluorescein and lissamine green, ocular clinical signs, Schirmer test, tear breakup time, and global efficacy assessed by the patient and the investigator.

The objective of this study was to explore Italian patients’ preferences regarding physician appearance.Methods: A questionnaire was developed to survey patients in different medical and surgical settings; each subject was asked to choose one picture of either a male or female physician from a selection of different attires (professional, casual, surgical scrubs, trendy, and careless. Patients were also surveyed about issues such as the presence of a name tag, hair length, trousers on women, amount of makeup, presence of tattoos, and body piercing. Statistical analysis was performed using a Chi-square test.Results: A total of 765 questionnaires (534 completed from patients waiting for an internal medicine visit and 231 for other subspecialties were completed. The majority (45% of patients preferred the gastroenterologist to wear a surgical scrub with a white coat. For the other specialists, patients accepted either scrubs or formal dress under a white coat (P ≤ 0.05, with a name tag. Trendy attire was preferred by nine patients (1.1%. The entire sample judged it inappropriate for clinicians to have long hair, visible tattoos, body piercing, and, for women, to wear trousers and use excessive makeup.Conclusion: This is the first study conducted in Italy regarding physician attire. As in other Western countries, Italian patients favor physicians in professional attire with a white coat. Wearing professional dress is part of “etiquette based medicine” and

Taking this into consideration, the present study was based on the following question: what practical contributions to clinicians and researchers does the current literature on childhood depression have to offer? The objective of the present study was to conduct a systematic review of articles regarding childhood depression. To accomplish this purpose, a systematic review of articles on childhood depression, published from January 1, 2010 to November 24, 2012, on MEDLINE and SciELO databases was carried out. Search terms were “depression” (medical subject headings [MeSH], “child” (MeSH, and "childhood depression" (keyword. Of the 180 retrieved studies, 25 met the eligibility criteria. Retrieved studies covered a wide range of aspects regarding childhood depression, such as diagnosis, treatment, prevention and prognosis. Recent scientific literature regarding childhood depression converge to, directly or indirectly, highlight the negative impacts of depressive disorders to the children's quality of life. Unfortunately, the retrieved studies show that childhood depression commonly grows in a background of vulnerability and poverty, where individual and familiar needs

In this context, the purpose of the present study was to analyze the influence of spirituality in childhood cancer care, involving biopsychosocial aspects of the child, the family, and the health care team facing the disease. To accomplish this purpose, a nonsystematic review of literature of articles on national and international electronic databases (Scientific Electronic Library Online [SciELO], PubMed, and Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature [LILACS] was conducted using the search terms “spirituality,” “child psychology,” “child,” and “cancer,” as well as on other available resources. After the search, 20 articles met the eligibility criteria and were included in the final sample. Our review showed that the relation between spirituality and health has lately become a subject of growing interest among researchers, as a positive influence of spirituality in the people's welfare was noted. Studies that were retrieved using the mentioned search strategy in electronic databases, independently assessed by the authors according to the systematic review, showed that spirituality emerges as a driving force that helps pediatric patients and their families in coping with cancer.

Se escogió el nombre de Gimnasio Moderno para esta Nueva Escuela: “Gimnasio lo llamamos pensando en la actividad del cuerpo y del espíritu; Moderno, agregado, como para sentirse obligados a mantenerse en continua renovación.” El Gimnasio Moderno se distingue de otros colegios de Colombia porque su filosofía se basa en innovadores principios de educación. El colegio argumenta que su esencia es ser, más que un instituto promotor de bachilleres, un refugio de principios espirituales y morales, no produciendo eruditos sino personas de bien. Es un colegio humanista, liberal y progresista, alejado del estilo de educación católico. El Gimnasio Moderno considera que esta clase de educación crea hombres de bien, con un claro sentido de responsabilidades, pulcros de cuerpo y espíritu, compañeros de siempre, caballerosos en su comportamiento y en su lenguaje y maneras. Hacia la escuela activa, o escuela nueva. Entre ese grupo de amigos estaban José Eustasio Rivera y Tomás Rueda Vargas, dos de los seis más reconocidos escritores de la primera mitad del siglo XX; prósperos empresarios y visionarios preocupados profundamente por la suerte de su país como Alberto Corradine, y José María y Tomás Samper, los principios del Gimnasio se confundían con los de sus fundadores, personificados sin duda en la figura de Agustín Nieto Caballero.SummaryThe Modern Gymnasium male private school situated in Bogota, Colombia, based on 1914 by the educador Colombian Agustín Nieto Caballero, in company of Tomás Rueda Vargas and the brothers José María and Tomás Samper Brush, among others.

    Full Text Available Este mes de septiembre se cumplen 150 años de la publicación de un libro que para muchos es el inicio de la epidemiología como disciplina y metodología de estudio del proceso salud-enfermedad. Este libro, On the Mode of Communication of Cholera por John Snow (1813-1858, hasta ese momento médico y anestesiólogo inglés, se convirtió por sus estudios del cólera en el barrio Soho de Londres en 1854, en una leyenda de la historia de la medicina y es considerado como el padre de la epidemiología. Por muchos siglos el cólera había sido una enfermedad muy temida por su alta carga de mortalidad y ningún tratamiento para curarla. Aunque Snow al comienzo se plegó a las teorías explicativas mayoritarias del momento, posteriormente en una publicación se arriesgó a contradecir la teoría miasmiática reinante afirmando sin vacilación que el origen del cólera estaba en la transmisión por vía digestiva. Debe recordarse que el vibrión colérico no fue descubierto por Roberto Koch hasta 1874. Snow era una persona tímida, introvertida, con una voz ronca y tenue nada favorable para presentaciones ante grandes audiencias. Quizás por ello, no fue vehemente en difundir sus ideas que ese momento iban contra la corriente. Eso mismo le pasa con su otra área de expertismo, la anestesia. Era muy conocido por estas habilidades y atendió el parto de la reina Victoria de sus dos últimos hijos, el príncipe Alberto en 1853 y la princesa Beatriz posteriormente, mediante la aplicación del cloroformo gota a gota. Este hecho llevó a la denominación de anestesia a la reina al procedimiento utilizado por Snow. Sus libros sobre anestesia con procedimientos innovativos fueron criticados por el British Medical Journal de la época y sobre todo del Lancet. Debe recordarse el orden cronológico de los sucesivos paradigmas de la epidemiología: la teoría miasmiática vigente hasta la primera mitad del siglo XIX, la teoría microbiana de gran impulso con

    Bohemian (Jesuit) provinces, mainly in Vienna and Neisse (the present Nysa in Silesia, Poland), but no traces of further astronomical activity have survived, if they ever existed. The fourth article, by Hans Gaab, is a very thoroughly researched biography of Johann Philipp von Wurzelbau (1651-1725), an merchant turned astronomer from Nuremberg. Wurzelbau started his activities at Christoph Eimmart's (the director of the painters' academy in Nuremberg) private observatory, and his first published work deals with observations of the great comet of 1680. Furthermore, he observed solar eclipses, Mercury transits, and determined the geographical latitude of Nuremberg. The article also contains a detailed description of Wurzelbau's observatory and its instruments. The fifth paper, by Klaus-Dieter Herbst, deals with Gottfried Kirch's idea of founding an astronomical society - being a vehicle to publishing astronomical observations. Kirch (1639-1710) was a well-known astronomer and calendar manufacturer. Around 1700, Kirch was appointed first astronomer at the Brandenburg society of sciences, and director of the observatory that was to be established with the new Berlin Academy. Herbst shows that Kirch's religious attitude that converged on pietism was a driving force to establish a scientific society. However, the final failure of such a project is due to the emergence of the scientific journal Acta Eruditorum, issued since 1682 in Leipzig, which could serve as an outlet for the publication of astronomical data by Kirch and others, thus fulfilling an essential task of the projected academy. Kirch's occupation with the composition of calendars, which took most of his time, was another reason. The following three shorter articles deal with 19th century astronomy. Peter Brosche describes an early visual photometer employed by Johann Gottfried Koehler (1745-1801) in Dresden, Alberto Meschiari edits and comments letters by Franz Xaver von Zach (1754-1832) to the physicist Gerbi in

Emisymmetric bilateral stimulation (EBS is a novel and innovative EMF brain stimulation, whose working principle is to introduce very weak noise-like stimuli through EMF to trigger self-arrangements in the cortex of treated subjects, thereby improving cognitive faculties. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate in patients with cognitive impairment the effectiveness of EBS treatment with respect to global cognitive function, episodic memory, and executive functions. Methods: Fourteen patients with cognitive decline (six with mild cognitive impairment and eight with Alzheimer’s disease underwent three EBS applications per week to both the cerebral cortex and auricular-specific sites for a total of 5 weeks. At baseline, after 2 weeks and 5 weeks, a neuropsychological assessment was performed through mini–mental state

Malignant gliomas account for a majority of malignant primary CNS tumors and are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Glioblastoma is the most frequent and malignant glioma, and despite the recent advances in diagnosis and new treatment options, its prognosis remains dismal. New opportunities for the development of effective therapies for malignant gliomas are urgently needed. Magnetic hyperthermia (MHT, which consists of heat generation in the region of the tumor through the application of magnetic nanoparticles subjected to an alternating magnetic field (AMF, has shown positive results in both preclinical and clinical assays. The aim of this review is to assess the relevance of hyperthermia induced by magnetic nanoparticles in the treatment of gliomas and to note the possible variations of the technique and its implication on the effectiveness of the treatment.

We investigated whether impairment of static lung volumes and lung diffusion capacity could be related to HRV indices in patients with moderate to severe COPD. Methods: Sixteen sedentary males with COPD were enrolled in this study. Resting blood gases, static lung volumes, and lung diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO were measured. The RR interval (RRi was registered in the supine, standing, and seated positions (10 minutes each and during 4 minutes of a respiratory sinus arrhythmia maneuver (M-RSA. Delta changes (Δsupine-standing and Δsupine-M-RSA of the standard deviation of normal RRi, low frequency (LF, normalized units [nu] and high frequency (HF [nu], SD1, SD2, alpha1, alpha2, and approximate entropy (ApEn indices were calculated. Results: HF, LF, SD1, SD2, and alpha1 deltas significantly correlated with forced expiratory volume in 1 second, DLCO, airway resistance, residual volume, inspiratory

    How did the education of surgical pathology, and pathology in general, differ at Mount Sinai? Passing the examination of the American Board of Pathology was never the focus of the department. Learning criteria or quoting references was de-emphasized, but mastery of macroscopic pathology was required, supported in both word and action by two brilliant surgical pathologists, Otani and Kaneko, and by two extraordinary medical pathologists, Klemperer and Popper. Meticulous microscopy emphasized pattern rather than reliance on lists of discrete features. Otani developed a regular "problem case" meeting for a community of pathologists, made up of alumni and other interested pathologists, as well as active department members. These monthly sessions provided the highest level of "continuing medical education." Otani and Kaneko unequivocally believed in learning from cases, and Mount Sinai residents were fortunate both in the one-to-one teaching and in the wealth of material, in all systems, that came to surgical pathology. Outstanding pathologists who came from Mount Sinai settled throughout the country and provided the highest level of diagnoses, but, with the exception of Bernard Wagner, Emanuel Rubin, Fiorenzo Paronetto, Richard Horowitz, Michael Gerber, Marc Rosenblum, Bruce Wenig, Jaishree Jagirdar, Swan Thung, Cesar Moran, Hideko Kamino, Philip LeBoit, Alberto Marchevsky, and others, there were relatively few academic leaders. Otani and Kaneko did not have national reputations. Klemperer, although world renowned, was relatively unassuming, and his disciples numbered almost as many nonpathologists as pathologists. Popper did establish a major center for liver pathology, with students coming from around the world, but did not particularly promote general surgical pathology. Can the Mount Sinai approach still be applied? The decline in the numbers of autopsies performed, the demands for rapid turnaround time, the de-emphasis of gross pathology as newer technologies (eg

After confirming tumor induction, the IG rats received intra-arterial suspensions of Fe3O4 nanoparticles (2.6 mg in Lipiodol® (0.15 mL. To calculate the iron concentration, [Fe], in the tumor and liver tissues of both groups of rats, measurements of signal intensity from the tumors, healthy liver tissue, and paravertebral muscles were made on a 1.5T MRI system in gradient-echo DP* and T2*-weighted sequences. In addition, samples were collected to quantify the [Fe] by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS, as well as for histological analysis. Statistical analysis was performed with non-parametric tests, and Bland–Altman plots were produced; P values <0.05 were considered significant.Results: In the CG rats (n = 23, the mean [Fe] values estimated by MRI and ICP-MS were 13.2 µmol • g-1 and 5.9 µmol • g-1, respectively, in the tumors, and 19.0 µmol • g-1 and 11.7 µmol • g-1, respectively, in the hepatic tissue
