  3. IN MEMORY OF PAOLO POROPAT

    2002-01-01

    It is with deep sadness that we have learned of the death of Paolo Poropat, who has been for long years the leader of the Trieste/Udine group in the DELPHI Collaboration. He was hit by a car around midnight of June 7 while walking near home with his dog. Paolo was 56, full professor at the University of Trieste and for many years vice-director of the Department of physics. He started his career as a theorist, but soon moved to bubble chamber physics and, later, to the European Hybrid Spectrometer. In all these experiments he was responsible for the construction of detectors advanced and small, on which he could work with his own hands. After a long period in DELPHI he got involved in BaBar and, at present, he was applying his skills at the Elettra synchrotron to the development of a beam line in a novel application to mammography. Paolo had a very rich personality and an interdisciplinary culture. He was caring about his students and collaborators with unique attention and personal involvement. For all his qu...

    The institutionalization of clinical research in Argentina reached its point of greatest maturity with the creation, in 1957, of the Institute of Medical Investigations (Instituto de Investigaciones Médicas) of the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad de Buenos Aires, and the drive of the man who was its director for almost 20 years, Alfredo Lanari. In this paper I analyze the ways in which he generated a style of clinical research and a referential position in local medical field that allowed him to carry out said institutional realization. This achievement was the result of a personal enterprise and at the same time part of a larger context of transformations within the medical discipline world-wide and at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. This study was carried out combining oral and documentary sources, such as interviews with physicians at the Institute of Medical Investigations, members of the journal Medicina and of the Argentine Society of Clinical Investigation (Sociedad Argentina de Investigación Clínica), as well as academic files and scientific articles.

Il contributo di Roncaglia fornisce allo stesso tempo un racconto biografico e racconta la traiettoria intellettuale del suo collega italiano. Mentre la teoria di Sylos Labini sull’ oligopolio e le sue forme di mercato costituisce, ovviamente, il centro della scena in queste riflessioni, essi vanno anche molto più lontano, includendo l'economia politica, dinamiche economiche, interrelazioni tra occupazione, crescita e distribuzione del reddito, l'economia dello sviluppo e la storia del pensiero economico. Questo lavoro mette in evidenza, in egual misura, i contributi e le realizzazioni dell'economista, così come le qualità della persona e del cittadino imparziale ed impegnato Paolo Sylos Labini.   In this article, Alessandro Roncaglia renders a careful and detailed intellectual tribute to the memory of Paolo Sylos Labini. Roncaglia’s contribution provides at once a biographical account and recounts the intellectual trajectory of his Italian colleague. While Sylos Labini’s theory of oligopoly and his market forms obviously take centre stage in these reflections, they also reach much further afield, including political economy, economic dynamics, interrelations between employment, growth and income distribution, development economics and the history of economic thought. This paper highlights, in equal measure, the contributions and achievements of the economist, as well as the qualities of the person and the impartial and engaged citizen Paolo Sylos Labini.  JEL Codes: B31Kyewords: Biography; Economic Thought; History of Economic Thought

    Full Text Available The article introduces to the new issue of the Review, which roughly corresponds with the tenth anniversary of the passing away of Paolo Sylos Labini (PSL. As explained by Roncaglia (2008, the very name of the PSL Quarterly Review is dedicated to the Italian economist, due among other things to the long run relation between PSL and the old series of this journal. The paper discusses PSL’s contributions in the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro Quarterly Review, focusing on his forecast of the recent global crisis, published in 2003. This contribution already contained precise reference – often backed by data for the USA and other economies – to trends and ‘explanations’ of the crisis that several mainstream economists (e.g. Robert Lucas claimed were impossible to see before the crisis itself. These include the accumulation of excessive household debt, excessive complacency on the side of the Fed, speculative bubbles in the US stock exchange and real estate markets, and the deflationary pressures caused by radical technological innovations. PSL’s example shows that the economists can and often do provide useful services to society, provided they build on solid theories.

    During the preparation of an exhibition in Pavia dedicated to the centennial anniversary of the death of the Italian Pathologist Paolo Mantegazza, a strange cheratinic horn was found at the Museum for the History of the University of Pavia labelled as 'spur of a cock transplanted into an ear of a cow.' After some historical investigation, we found this strange object was at the centre of a scientific correspondence between Mantegazza and Charles Darwin, who made reference to it in his book The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication.

  15. Il viaggio settecentesco di Paolo Sangiorgio in Valsassina

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available Between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the institutionalization of Earth sciences was made possible by the spread across Europe of rather commonly known experimental approaches, which were partly based on the exploration of mountains. The scientific travel on mountains acquired its own tools and practices soon, and gave an important contribution to the emergence of historical geology. Against this backdrop, the geological as well as natural knowledge of the Alps and Prealps took place, involving several Italian and European scholars. This paper, after brief considerations on the biography of Paolo Sangiorgio, an Italian savant, offers the complete edition of the unpublished manuscript (1771 of his travel in Valsassina (Lombard Prealps, Northern Italy. The report of his surveys to the east of the lake of Como is certainly a significant primary source about the epistemic value that the scientific travel had acquired by the first half of the nineteenth century.

  17. Ethical perspectives and ramifications of the Paolo Macchiarini case.

    Teixeira da Silva, Jaime A

    2017-01-01

    The Paolo Macchiarini case has several ethical ramifications. Professor Macchiarini, formerly of the Karolinska Institutet (KI), became famous for the tracheal surgeries he conducted between 2008 and 2014. His rapid rise to fame was followed by an almost equally rapid fall from grace as official reports, articles in newspapers and television programmes revealed several aspects related to misconduct in his curriculum vitae, professional practices and publishing-related activity. Formal misconduct reports issued by four KI co-workers in late 2014, then again in 2016, coupled with social scandals, including the tricking of a famous US television newscaster into a false marriage, a previous arrest in Italy for apparent bribery, and acute narcissism, all tainted Macchiarini's legend. In the short space of just two years, Macchiarini was no longer remembered for the revolutionary changes he had claimed to have brought about in stem cell research and regenerative medicine. Instead, at least seven dead patients later, Macchiarini faces potential aggravated manslaughter charges and an uphill battle to save his published research, now shrouded in scandal and scientific doubt, from being retracted and scratched out from the list of verified medical science. This paper examines some of the possible ethical ramifications of the Macchiarini case.

  18. Giovanni Paolo II – l’uomo buono

    Full Text Available L’andare di Giovanni Paolo II alla casa del Padre ha toccato profondamente tutti, credenti e non credenti. Il modo in cui il Papa viveva i suoi ultimi giorni, segnati dalla sofferenza, la sua pasqua dalla morte alla vita in Dio, ha confermato definitivamente la sua grandezza. Agli occhi del mondo è sfavillata la sua bella umanità e allo stesso tempo si è aperto unenorme e doloroso vuoto. La vicenda dell’uomo rassomiglia a quella di un albero: si può valutarne bene la grandezza, salute e posto nel paesaggio solo quando è abbattuto. L’umanità del Santo Padre era tutta tessuta dei valori massimi di verità, libertà, amore... Il Papa li realizzava con radicalismo e coraggio che però sapeva unire alla mitezza e rispetto verso gli altri. Questa difficile sintesi testimonia il suo genio morale. Il fondamento dell’umanità di Giovanni Paolo II era la fede in Dio che rafforza le naturali capacità dell’uomo e permette di unire tutti gli elementi della realtà umana, inclusa la sofferenza e morte, in un armonioso insieme. Il legame con Dio non lo separava dagli uomini, ma lo apriva ancor di più a loro. Infatti, accanto a lui si radunavano sia giovani che adulti ed egli li univa sulla base dei valori che riconosceva. Col passare del tempo, la comunità attorno a lui aumentava, nel giorno del suo funerale abbracciava pressoché tutto il mondo. Ciò dimostra la giustezza dell’antropologia evangelica alla cui luce costruiva tutta la sua vita. I mezzi con cui il Santo Padre foggiava la sua umanità erano semplici, ma esigenti. La fonte della forza e della luce costituiva per lui soprattutto una fervida e costante preghiera, frequente partecipazione ai sacramenti e sistematica meditazione sulla Parola di Dio. A queste pratiche religiose univa un solido studio delle diverse materie: letteratura, filosofia, teologia. Con passione perseguiva la verità, voleva raggiungere l’essenza delle cose e fenomeni, trattava le questioni del

    Wasson, John T.; DePaolo, Donald J.

    We honor Don DePaolo with the Macelwane Award for several key contributions to the earth sciences. While a graduate student at Caltech Don recognized that the study of an isotopic parent—daughter pair having the same volatility and the same host phases could eliminate many of the ambiguities that had plagued previous attempts to apply isotopic data to the study of mantle reservoirs and that the 147Sm-143Nd system was such a geochemically coherent pair.Following Gunter Lugmair's pioneering work on meteorites, Don was one of the first to work out laboratory techniques for the study of Sm and Nd; these techniques and the high-precision mass spectrometers of the Wasserburg lab allowed Don and Jerry to demonstrate in several key papers that there were at least two major mantle reservoirs and to examine earth structural models that could account for the observations. Don continues to contribute new ideas to this area; for example, in a paper in press he discusses the use of 176Lu-176Hf results to place constraints on the rate of crustal recycling.

  20. Paolo Sarpi and the first Copernican tidal theory.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Naylor, Ron

    2014-12-01

    Despite his demanding religious responsibilities, Paolo Sarpi maintained an active involvement in science between 1578 and 1598- as his Pensieri reveal. They show that from 1585 onwards he studied the Copernican theory and recorded arguments in its favour. The fact that for 1595 they include an outline of a Copernican tidal theory resembling Galileo's Dialogue theory is well known. But examined closely, Sarpi's theory is found to be different from that of the Dialogue in several important respects. That Sarpi was a Copernican by 1592 is revealed by other of his pensieri, whereas at that time we know that Galileo was not. The examination of Sarpi's tidal theory and of the work of Galileo in this period indicates that the theory Sarpi recorded in 1595 was of his own creation. The appreciation that the theory was Sarpi's and that Galileo subsequently came to change his views on the Copernican theory and adopted the tidal theory has major implications for our understanding of the significance of Sarpi's contribution to the Scientific Revolution. Moreover, it appears that several of the most significant theoretical features of the tidal theory published by Galileo in the Dialogue - and which proved of lasting value - were in reality Sarpi's.

  1. The Body as a Frontier: Paolo Volponi and Tiziano Scarpa

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes an analysis of some texts by Paolo Volponi and Tiziano Scarpa in which the body reveals the alienation of the protagonist. By the analysis of the texts we reflect on the concept of the Persona as the complex concept of human being in which the physical body, the juridical essence and the sensible entity are unified. The body is a porous barrier, a threshold that the authors use to discover the points of contact and separation with the external world, it’s man’s first space and his first language. In the age of the Body fabrication” some concepts as “the senses feast” by Kristeva, and as the one of Somatisation derive from a recent analysis of the human body and of its relations with the representation of human sensibility. These works describe cases of alienation by mean of a sort of body language, activated by the illness or other specific circumstances, the paper then tries to reconstruct the last changes related to the body concept and to analyse the literary examples in relation to recent theories on fragmentation and dissociative disorders (corps sans organes- Deleuze Guattari The description of this fragmented condition reveals the necessity to rebuild a human integrity, to construct a new concept of human physiology based on an organic vision of the human being. The current dilatation and deflagration of the intimacy then seems to be a strategy to overpass the limits of conscious communication, to impose a new holistic concept of human sensibility

    Full Text Available Il grado di specializzazione raggiunto nel settore clinico veterinario non è dissimile da quello presente in campo umano, soprattutto se si pensa agli animali d'affezione che sono oramai considerati parte integrante di una società moderna e civile in cui anche il fattore benessere animale ha acquisito importanza non secondaria, in particolare nell'allevamento degli animali da reddito. In questo contesto è sempre più richiesta la figura di uno specialista competente e aggiornato, in grado di risolvere in modo adeguato le problematiche che gli vengono proposte, in un mercato in concorrenza che non contempla imperizia, inesperienza e ignoranza professionale. Lo studio della semeiologia clinica è uno dei primi passi di questo lungo e affascinate cammino che permette di apprendere un metodo di analisi sistematico, affidabile, efficiente e accurato per educare il futuro medico veterinario verso le procedure della buona pratica clinica. La semeiotica insegna ad allenare i propri sensi: a guardare attraverso l'osservazione diretta e indiretta, a sentire ascoltando suoni o rumori, a percepire sensazioni tattili e, non da ultimo, a saper discernere con cognizione e competenza quando ricorrere alle indagini strumentali e di laboratorio; sempre e comunque nella consapevolezza che non possono in nessun modo sostituire l'esame fisico diretto del paziente. Paolo Ciaramella, professore ordinario di Clinica Medica Veterinaria all'Università Federico II di Napoli, presenta così il volume che ha curato: "L'idea di questo libro ha preso forma durante un simposio di medicina interna tenutosi a Torino nel 2008. Con alcuni colleghi presenti si pensò alla possibilità di elaborare un nuovo testo di Semeiotica Medica che potesse ampliare e aggiornare il glorioso Messieri e Moretti, non tanto perché esso avesse perduto il suo valore intrinseco, quanto piuttosto perché nel corso degli anni sono cambiate la patologia animale e con essa la semeiotica e la clinica

    The type specimens of amphibians and reptiles of the Museo de Historia Natural Alfredo Dugès, at the University of Guanajuato (MADUG) were reviewed following Smith & Necker's (1943) summary. Owing to this collection's eventful history and its historical importance as the oldest herpetological collection in Mexico, a review of its conservation status was needed. After many years, the collection has received proper recognition at the University of Guanajuato with a portion of the herpetological types considered "Precious Assets" of the university. We found 34 type specimens pertaining to 18 taxa; six are additional specimens to those previously reported; six herpetological types are missing, including the body of the type of Adelophis copei. All specimens are in good to reasonable condition except for the type of Rhinocheilus antonii, which has dried out completely. All specimens are illustrated to show their condition.

    The presence of elevated metal concentrations in soils of the urban environment has been recognized as an important source of metal intake to humans, particularly to children, which are more susceptible to the adverse effects of soil ingestion than adults. There has been little research on urban soils in Sao Paulo, a very populated city with severe pollution problems, and there is little information about metal concentration levels in public parks of Sao Paulo. As part of a project which aims metal assessment in urban park soils from Sao Paulo, in the present paper the concentration of the elements As, Ba, Cr, Sb and Zn were determined in topsoil samples (0- 5 cm and 0-20 cm) from Alfredo Volpi (Morumbi) park of Sao Paulo. Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) was used for metal analysis. Preliminary results showed higher concentrations of As, Ba and Sb compared with the values considered as reference for soils in Sao Paulo, according to Environmental Protection Agency of the State of Sao Paulo (CETESB). In some samples Ba showed concentration levels higher than the Prevention values reported by CETESB. (author)

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to study the idea of obedience in early-modern Catholic political thought. I focus on early seventeenth-century Venice and on one of its leading political thinkers, Paolo Sarpi. I argue that for Sarpi and the Venetian nobility obedience was a religious, Catholic concept, which they nonetheless applied to a secular system of governance; notwithstanding their refusal to obey the papal ban during the interdict of Venice in 1606-1607, Venetians regarded obedience as an act of piety and an indispensable element of civic life.El objetivo de este artículo es estudiar la idea de obediencia en el pensamiento político católico de la edad moderna, en particular en Venecia en el siglo XVII y en Paolo Sarpi, uno de sus pensadores políticos más importantes. Este artículo argumenta que para Sarpi y la nobleza la obediencia era un concepto católico, que a pesar de ello, aplicaron a un sistema de gobierno secular. A pesar de su negativa a obedecer la prohibición papal durante el interdicto de Venecia en 1606-1607, los venecianos consideraban la obediencia como un acto de piedad y un elemento indispensable de la vida cívica.

Study of the evolution of the records: enhancement of the description of the patient, integration between medical and nursing assistance, assumption of responsi- bility (for instance through the signature). A sampling of 355 medical records has been analysed. The nursing records have been identified according to the theoretical model of Marisa Cantarelli. They have been compared with the current standard reported in literature. If recognizable signatures were present, they have been checked in the archives of the Province of Milan. 219 records concerning nursing assistance have been selected. The record changed during the years assuming a definite structure, and became a pre printed form; its use spread in all the wards of the hospital. The record deals with nursing assistance needs, and improves during the years becoming more and more detailed and regular. During the analysed time frame, the nursing reports at "Paolo Pini" improve and become more exhaustive and regular; they prove to be part of the medical record, showing a good integration between doctors and nurses activities. The evolution of this tool confirms the need of highlighting and improving the assistance practice.

    2001-01-01

    Full Text Available I am proposing an analysis of a novel by Alfredo Véra, Jr., The Silver Cloud Café (1996. As the author of a narrative trilogy that includes La Maravilla (1993, and Gods Go Begging (1999, Véa has produced, in The Silver Cloud Café , a novel that is central to the trilogy's interpretation. In my analysis, I discuss how Véa's novels question borders of the self—understood as ethnic or racial—through notions of a personal education (in La Maravilla , Alberto's; in The Silver Cloud Café , Zeferino's in which characters count on the pedagogical guidance of Yaqui shamans, manongs from the Philippine Islands, Mexican braceros , and, in Alberto's case, a Spanish grandmother. In terms of the challenges that Véa's novels make on the reader, I argue that such difficulties derive from fundamental notions that Véa embraces regarding the writer, the literary text, and the reader. Moreover, Véa questions minimalist tendencies in the United States that reduce persons to one racial or ethnic identity. As a historical novel, Silver Cloud turns into an archaeological site where the imperial histories of Spain and the United States are read as the narrative's intertextual memory. My analysis will be centered on the novel's rhetoric of memory and forgetfulness, and on its visionary impulse that—taken mostly from the Gnostics, American Transcendentalists, and modern Latin American novelists—one could read as a critique of America as well as the reclaiming of literary traditions that redefine the conventional limits of Chicano literature. These traditions extend to prophetic biblical texts, Augustine, Dante, and—among other literary figures—to modern Latin American writers, thus illuminating Véa's continued reflection on a world in decay and on the corresponding visions or revelations of its regeneration. Although present in Chicano literature in novels by Rudolfo, Anaya, Montserrat Fontes, Arturo Islas, and José Antonio Villarreal, this

  1. Chromosomenindividualität or Entmischung? The debate between Paolo Della Valle and Edmund B. Wilson.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Volpone, Alessandro

    2015-01-01

    At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Italian cytologist Paolo Della Valle developed a theory of instable chromosomes (teoria dei cromosomi labili). He radically criticized the so-called Sutton-Boveri hypothesis (Martins and Martins, Genetics and Molecular Biology, 22:261-271, 1999), focusing on numerical constancy in the species and individuality. On the basis of bibliographical review and personal observations, he maintained that the chromosomes were neither stable bodies, nor permanent structures, but transitory cellular materials, resulting from the periodical rearrangement of the chromatin during the cell division. German and English-speaking biologists reacted. The paper shows some content of the argumentations used by Thomas H. Montgomery and especially Edmund B. Wilson. The discussion was characterized by the same data which is interpretedby different scholars in different ways. And the point is that no one of them had the decisive test to demonstrate his own point of view. Wilson simply invoked on his behalf a certain 'common sense', defending at least a 'high degree of constancy'. The debate waned along with the reception of Morgan's chromosome theory of heredity, but only the advent of molecular biology definitively stated the nature of chromosomes as permanent structures of the cell.

These fossils comprise a fragmentary right femur and a proximal portion of a right tibia. The femur was assigned to the family Titanosauridae on the basis of the following features: straight shape, somewhat anteroposteriorly flattened; fourth trochanter slightly medially pronounced right above of the middle part of the bone’s lenght; a proximolateral proeminence of thegreater trochanter and a medial deflection of the proximal end of the femur. The tibia described here shares similar features with Titanosauria taxa like a well developed cnemial crest only slightly curved laterally; a deep longitudinal concavity separating the crest from the tibial shaft and a very anteroposteriorly expanded proximal end. These are the first fossil bones of dinosaurs recovered from Alfredo Marcondes municipality.

  3. [The ideas that are seen. Form and perception in Goethe and Paolo Bozzi].

    Giacomoni, Paola

    2013-01-01

    This article presents a comparative analysis of Paolo Bozzi's experimental phenomenology and of J.W. Goethe's morphological method, which is considered one of the Italian scholar's sources of inspiration. Starting from Bozzi's education within the Gestalt psychology tradition, under the guidance of Gaetano Kanizsa, and taking into account also the recent interest shown for Bozzi by several exponents of the analytic tradition, this work draws attention to the basic features of the methodology adopted by the perceptologist in his work. In this regard, what proves to be fundamental is the role played by the various techniques of inter-observation by means of an active and practical approach to the material, rather than a purely contemplative one. Bozzi's interest in Goethe's naturalistic writings, from the morphological ones to the Farbenlehre (Theory of colours), makes it possible to highlight significant analogies and conceptual continuities with Goethe's epistemology. First of all, a link between these two styles of research is provided by the subject "form," or Gestalt, and its direct, accurate observation, as well as its presence in non-conventional contexts and its non-metaphysical character. Furthermore, it is evident that both authors employ a conception of experiment that is repeatable, conducted almost always in conditions that are open and not of the laboratory. Not less relevant is their scientific style, in which the distinction between the context of discovery and the context of justification plays no role. At the same time the extraordinary communication skills of both authors play a crucial role: their non-academic way of writing accompanied by a sense of rigour and correctness makes the results outstanding and unique.

Sin embargo, cada vez es más importante la salvaguarda del patrimonio histórico-documental relacionado con la práctica de la liturgia católico-romana, en aras de valorar su trascendencia cultural para nuestra música. En el archivo de música de la Catedral de Santiago de Cuba fueron localizadas partituras del músico Alfredo Morales Mustelier, uno de los precursores del uso de ritmos y melodías folklóricas en la liturgia católica, constituyendo el único reservorio en Cuba que conserva sus obras. Los aportes de este compositor al patrimonio musical pre y post-conciliar han sido poco estudiados, por lo que es necesario la reconstrucción de su historia de vida como paso ineludible para contextualizar su obra creativa, así como la confección de un catálogo que permita conocer lo atesorado en archivo para convertir sus obras en objeto de estudio de próximas investigaciones.

    Full Text Available Abstract  Sintesi caleidoscopica dell’eros latino, le Metamorfosi di Ovidio sono state fondamentale riferimento sin dall’antichità per molti pittori che ne hanno ripreso i temi, cimentandosi anche nel non facile compito di rappresentare nella fissità della realizzazione pittorica la narrazione di ciò che, per definizione, è in movimento: la metamorfosi. Un pendant di dipinti, diviso ora fra Italia e Stati Uniti, raffigurante Apollo e Dafne e Pan e Siringa, rappresenta un significativo caso studio per dare avvio a una riflessione sui sottili rapporti che intercorrono fra l’invenzione del soggetto dovuta al poeta Ovidio, la modalità teorica con cui debba essere rappresentato tale soggetto, elaborata dal filosofo e committente inglese Conte di Shaftesbury e la realizzazione artistica di tale teoria dovuta al pittore cilentano Paolo De Matteis. Scopo ultimo della riflessione è quello di meglio comprendere, tanto storicamente quanto fenomenologicamente, l’intelligenza propria di un linguaggio pittorico che struttura dall’interno le immagini, rendendo efficace la loro capacità di mostrare sia ciò che le parole narrano sia ciò che il pensiero teorizza.   A kaleidoscopic synthesis of the Latin eros, Ovid’s Metamorphoses have been a fundamental point of reference, since ancient times, for the many painters who drew their subject-matter from this text and also undertook the far from simple task of using the static nature of the pictorial medium to represent the narration of what is – by definition – in motion: metamorphosis. A pair of paintings, now divided between Italy and the United States, depicting Apollo and Daphne and Pan and Syrinx, offers a significant case study for an initial reflection on the subtle relationships between the invention of a subject, a text by the poet Ovid, the theoretical mode of representing such a subject, devised by the English philosopher and patron, the Earl of Shaftesbury, and the artistic

Promuovendo una ricognizione materiale e critica dell’opera del maestro, la mostra fu l’occasione per effettuare una massiccia campagna di restauri ad opera del bergamasco Mauro Pellicioli e della sua squadra di collaboratori. Agendo sul duplice fronte della museografia e del restauro, Pallucchini si pose in dialogo con le parallele definizioni elaborate in sede istituzionale da Guglielmo Pacchioni e Giulio Carlo Argan. Il presente saggio intende offrire, attraverso materiale archivistico inedito, un’analisi del ruolo della mostra di Veronese nel contesto nazionale e internazionale, ricostruendo con un approccio interdisciplinare le dinamiche teoriche e operative che ne animarono lo svolgimento. Veronese exhibition took place in Venice in 1939 under the direction of Rodolfo Pallucchini. While promoting both material and critical examination of Veronese’s work, the exhibition was an opportunity to undertake a massive restoration, performed by Mauro Pellicioli and his team of collaborators. Pallucchini’s museographical and conservative program was in close relation with the theories promoted by Guglielmo Pacchioni and Giulio Carlo Argan in public administration. This paper intends to offer, through unpublished archival evidence, a detailed analysis of Veronese exhibition in relation to national and international context, in order to understand with an interdisciplinary approach both its theoretical and practical aspects.

    Urology, having been part of general surgery for centuries, was completely consolidated as a medical speciality in the middle of the XX Century as the result of years of evolution and development, and all the studies and works of certain authors that represent today the mainstays of our speciality. Valencia in the middle of the 20th century saw the birth of new hospitals including the "Ciudad Sanitaria La Fe". Alfredo Tramoyeres Cases was the first chairman of the Department of Urology. This article reviews his long and fertile professional life. We have reviewed all his scientific works. The articles have been obtained from Medicina Española, Revista Española de Cirugía Traumatológica y Ortopedia, and Archivos Españoles de Urología. His most important urological work is his doctoral thesis with the title "Sigmoid-procto-ureterostomy: personal modification" published in Valencia in 1976. For his biography we used the" Biographic and bibliographic history of the Spanish Urology over the XX century" and interviews with family members. We emphasize his thorough description of the various types of urinary diversion. He covers the topics of bladder diverticula and bladder neck disorders, in which he supports surgical treatment. Finally, he sets out the rupture of the posterior urethra and various treatments for prostate cancer at that time. Alfredo Tramoyeres Cases contributed to the definitive consolidation of our speciality in the area of Valencia during the second half of the XX century, through his long professional life, with his interesting scientific contributions.

En s'adressant au public plus restreint et plus cultivé des romans, Mantegazza tente d'élargir son audience à de nouvelles couches de la population. Cependant, ses motivations restent inchangées. Le genre pseudo-scientifique dissimulait des visées morales : la santé du corps étant liée à la santé morale, ses livres de divulgation véhiculaient essentiellement une ligne de conduite, un décalogue des bonnes mœurs. Avec le nouveau genre pseudo-romanesque, l'auteur dissimule sous la forme alléchante de la fiction narrative des visées médicales, plus précisément prophylactiques. Dans les deux cas, néanmoins, formes et savoirs sont instrumentalisés : la déontologie scientifique et l'esthétique du texte littéraire s'inclinent devant l'idéologie.Nel 1868, il trentasettenne antropologo monzese Paolo Mantegazza, già autore di numerosi libri di divulgazione scientifica, inaugura con la pubblicazione di un romanzo, Un giorno a Madera, una nuova strategia di comunicazione.

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available Giovanni Paolo Marana’s epistolary novel, entitled l’Espion du Grand-Seigneur and published for the first time in the 1680s, was a pioneering work of a genre that was to flourish much later, namely spy story. The story features an Arab who comes to Paris in 1637 and spends the next 45 years collecting information about French government’s activity without being ever identified by French counter-intelligence. The main character was an undercover agent of a Muslim empire, who watched Christians with contempt - and yet the book that pretended to be just a bunch of his letters, accidentally found and translated from Arabic by Marana, was a bestseller in late seventeenth- and then eighteenth-century Western Europe. The paper presents the fates of the work and discusses the reasons of its huge success. Apart from the fact that the novel was written in a brilliant style, and published at the time when the ongoing Habsburg-Turkish war had triggered intensive interest in the Muslim East, one of these reasons was the fact that it was published in the time when in France a modern police force was created. Its tasks included collecting information about political opinions, religious practices and intimate lives of the Sun King’s subjects. The new feeling of being observed by the government’s men and informers certainly prepared the ground for the success of the first spy story of the West.

    Desde que la medicina se tornó curativa con los bacteriostáticos y antibióticos, hace 70 años, la humanidad doliente entró en una nueva fase que aún vivimos y que pudiera denominarse la edad del medicamento. Hasta entonces los medicamentos no pasaban de ser sintomáticos aunque algunos, como los analgésicos, anestésicos, sedantes y otros, como los digitálicos y los derivados naturales o sintéticos de la quina, habían sentado ya sus reales en una terapéutica que, siglo y medio atrás, era tan primitiva que había hecho exclamar a Voltaire cuando se enteró que un sobrino suyo pensaba estudiar medicina: “Desgraciado, ¡cómo te atreves a estudiar un arte que consiste en administrar venenos que no conoces a organismos que todavía conoces menos!”. El siglo XX, como nos lo recuerda Alfredo Jácome Roca en este ameno libro, introdujo de lleno la farmacología como una ciencia que, a su vez tomó sus raíces en la fisiopatología, la química, la bacteriología y la inmunología que habían abierto la era de la “medicina etiopatológica”, al decir de Laín Entralgo, medicina que aún se perpetúa en nuestros días.

    Toda esa evolución del pensamiento médico, desde una terapia empírica, animista y mágica en el primitivo hombre de antaño hasta la terapéutica molecular y casi atómica de hogaño, está amenamente descrita en este libro, dividido en una introducción general y seis secciones o capítulos rematados por un séptimo o addendum que sirve a su vez de resumen o colofón de los anteriores. En todos ellos logra el autor darnos una visión panorámica de la historia de la terapéutica que es, a su vez, la historia de la medicina, pues ésta se estableció, desde las culturas más primitivas, como un arte para curar la enfermedad. La cual ha estado presente, según ha sido demostrado, desde el Neanderthal hasta nuestras calendas. Al fin y al cabo, como lo dijera Juan Montalvo, el notable polígrafo ecuatoriano,

  8. Should the definition of "sleep hygiene" be antedated of a century? A historical note based on an old book by Paolo Mantegazza, rediscovered. To place in a new historical context the development of the concept of sleep hygiene.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gigli, Gian Luigi; Valente, Mariarosaria

    2013-05-01

    The article contains a historical note on the concept of sleep hygiene, developed in 1977 by Peter Hauri, who developed a set of sleep-promoting rules, considered the fundament for sleep-hygiene techniques. Somnologists, unanimously ascribed to Hauri the fatherhood of the lucky term, while numerous books included at least a section on sleep hygiene. "Inadequate sleep hygiene" was included as a nosological entity in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders. This article intends to demonstrate that the concept of sleep hygiene was developed many years before, thanks to the pioneering work of Paolo Mantegazza, a scientist and a professor in the Medical School of the University of Pavia, Italy. After presenting briefly the history of the University of Pavia and illustrating the profile of Paolo Mantegazza, the article presents the original book published by Mantegazza in 1864 (second edition in 1865). The authors report extensive citations of Mantegazza's original book dealing with sleep hygiene. Mantegazza's indications, compared with Hauri's rules show important similarities. The authors support the view that the fatherhood of sleep hygiene should be acknowledged to Mantegazza and antedated to 1864. Hauri keeps the merit of giving more solid scientific roots to the concept of sleep hygiene and of inserting it in the frame of modern sleep medicine.

O objetivo do trabalho foi avaliar se a morfometria da bacia do rio Benevente tem relação com as enchentes ocorridas no município de Alfredo Chaves, ES. A base de dados consistiu de um modelo digital de elevação (ASTER, da rede hidrográfica vetorial do IBGE e de uma série histórica de 40 anos de precipitação diária. Os parâmetros morfométricos foram obtidos por meio de Sistemas de Informações Geográficas (SIG. A área de estudo possui uma forma alongada, relevo fortemente ondulado e declividade média da bacia de 42,75%. A altitude variou de 480 a 1.591 m. Novembro, dezembro e janeiro foram os meses de maior precipitação, com média mensal de 246,7, 261,5 e 204,2 mm, respectivamente. Conclui-se que a alta declividade da bacia e do rio principal, aliada à intensificação do uso e ocupação do solo, exerce expressiva influência sobre o escoamento superficial na bacia, aumentando as chances de ocorrência de picos de enchentes.

However, there remains a challenge in identifying and inferring the causal SNPs from sequence data. A problem with different methods that predict the effect of mutations is that they produce false positives. In this hypothesis, we provide an overview of methods known for identifying causal variants and discuss the challenges, fallacies, and prospects in discerning candidate SNPs. We then propose a three-point classification strategy, which could be an additional annotation method in identifying causalities.

The author reports on the proceedings of two conferences in memory of Sylos Labini held in Rome, on 18 November 2015 at the Lincean Academy and on 4 December 2015 at Sapienza University. Sylos Labini stipulated that the goal of economic development is not just to satisfy human needs, but to cater civil development itself, in accordance with Adam Smith’s fundamental lesson. In his view, economic development and civil development interact in a circular manner in the long run. Considering the developmental issues of Italy’s Mezzogiorno, Sylos Labini highlights that the nature of the problem is not only economic, but rather many issues arise from unreasonable links between politics, economy, and society. Accordingly, he provided policy suggestions that are not limited to the economic and industrial fields (such as water supply projects, irrigation infrastructures, and investments for the creation of modern industries, but he also identified three priority areas of social policy: measures to contrast the mafias, crime in public procurement, and corruption; a reform of the public administration; and investments in education, universities, and research.

    Full Text Available In the 1970s and 1980s, migratory flows of Portuguese and luso-Africans from old Portuguese African colonies towards to São Paulo were the result of the pressures of difficult and complex African and Portuguese politics. Three very different cultural experiences were in play: that of the portuguese colony, the african context, and the Brazilian character of the destination, Sao Paulo. This paper explores the migrant's complex displacement experiences, the insertion of the migrant into the new context and the conflicts of identity that this migratory process entailed. We concentrate on the recent past, which has not been extensively researched. We use a method we call "summarized life-histories", which seemed appropriate, as we didn’t know what the immigrants would tell us. We present a number of specific cases to exemplify our analysis. Through them, we can see that memories refer to events, people and places from the three continents, through the conscious and unconscious construction of multiple identities.

Both scientists have obtained the award for their work on the anatomy of the nervous system. However, they have opposite views on the mechanisms underlying nervous functions. Golgi believes that the axons stained by his "black reaction" form a continuous anatomical or functional network along which nervous impulses propagate. Ramón y Cajal is the paladin of the neuron theory, a hypothesis questioned by Golgi in his Nobel lecture of Tuesday, December 11. After the ceremony, an independent journalist has interviewed Professor Golgi in the Grand Hotel in Stockholm. Excerpts about his education, his main scientific discoveries, and his personal life are here given (reconstructing the "impossible interview" on the basis of Golgi's original writings).

  4. A critical analysis of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s African Oresteia

    1996-04-01

    Full Text Available Pasolini's Appunti per un’Orestiade africana (1970 is a metaphorical film, inspired by the Greek legend of Orestes, in which Pasolini views postcolonial African history through the lens of mythology. His portrait of the birth of “modern” Africa is an attempt to narrate the passage from past to present and to salvage "prehistory" through his dream of the unification of the rational, democratic state and the irrational, primal slate of being. It is, however, a dream punctuated by contradictions and paradoxes, a dream which Pasolini will later abandon. Yet it is significant in the overall development of Pasolini's genre.

    Full Text Available Although Brazil is renowned worldwide for its fascinating 20th century modernist architecture, the ongoing contemporary architecture is increasingly moving away from former avant-garde and cosmopolitan ideals as well as physical form. In São Paulo, the country’s largest city, high quality and typical architectural design has been crumbling before the onslaught of poorly articulated consumer demands and the property market for decades. The phenomenon of the neoclassical style is causing increasing revolt from representatives of the urban elite, the reasons being loss of aesthetic values, no knowledge of identity and hurt national pride.

    Full Text Available O italiano, ou variedades dialetizadas de italiano, no início do século XX era falado aproximadamente pela metade da população de São Paulo. Posteriormente, por diferentes motivos, entre os quais a chegada de outros grupos étinicos e diminuição progressiva de onda imigratória italiana, essa porcentagem diminuiu muito. Agora, quase quarenta anos após o fim do movimento imigratório, a permanência do italiano em São Paulo depende do ensino formal em cursos livres, às vezes com contribuições financeiras italianas, em escolas e universidades públicas brasileiras. Para a atualização linguistica deve-se considerar o suvsídio de RAI International.

    Full Text Available Se presenta un estudio que da cuenta de las estrategias con que un museo universitario de Ciencias Naturales, a la vez que busca divulgar la ciencia, responde al reto del paradigma “ver y tocar”. En el curso de este texto se evalúa el aprendizaje de una serie de acciones a través de la atracción al contacto humano. Las estrategias aplicadas parten del contenido de los programas escolares de enseñanza, y buscan su efectividad tras acercar al visitante a la ciencia por primera vez. De esta forma, las actividades permiten multiplicar el público, enriquecer su aprendizaje, aumentar su comprensión y valoración de los avances científicos y tecnológicos; asimismo, ofrecen experiencias que incentivan las labores científicas. En estas condiciones se perfila el reto por desarrollar otras actividades que permitan formar un público leal y permanente, cuyo gusto por las Ciencias Naturales y la ciencia en general sea sólido. A case study is presented which illustrates the strategies employed by a university sponsored natural science museum in meeting the challenge posed by the “hands-on” model in its efforts to bring scientific knowledge to the general public. The extent to which a series of actions are learned, assisted by the attraction that the opportunity to touch provides, is evaluated. The strategies employed are aligned to the general school curriculum and seek to be effective in attracting newcomers to the world of science. Such strategies provide for increased museum attendance, whilst enriching the learning process and enhancing the public’s understanding and appreciation of scientific and technological advances. They also offer a range of experiences to encourage involvement in scientific activity. Furthermore, we take a brief look at the challenge of developing activities aimed at creating a loyal and permanent public with a concrete interest in science in general and the natural sciences in particular.

All patients underwent OCT examination using Zeiss Stratus OCT 3 (Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc, Dublin, CA and Opko OTI Spectral SLO/OCT (Ophthalmic Technologies Inc, Toronto, Canada. In all radial line scans, the presence of intraretinal edema (IRE, serous pigment epithelium detachment (sPED, neurosensory serous retinal detachment (NSRD, epiretinal membrane (EM, inner limiting membrane thickening (ILMT, and hard exudates (HE were evaluated. The degree of matching was quantified by Kappa measure of agreement.Results: The percentage distribution of TD OCT findings versus SD OCT findings was: IRE 36.3% versus 77.9%, sPED 57.1% versus 85.7%, NSRD 38.9% versus 53.2%, EM 10.5% versus 26.3%, ILMT 3.8% versus 32.4%, and HE 6.4% versus 54.5%. The agreement was as follows: sPED: kappa value 0.15; NSRD: kappa value 0.61; IRE: kappa value 0.18; EM: kappa value 0.41; ILMT: kappa value 0.02; HE: kappa value 0.06.Conclusion: The agreement in the evaluation of macular lesions between the two techniques is poor and depends on the lesion considered. SD OCT allows better detection of the alterations typically related to choroidal neovascularization such as IRE, PED, ILM thickening, and HE. Consequently its use should be strongly considered in patients with wet AMD.Keywords: spectral domain, OCT, time domain, macular degeneration, AMD

    Full Text Available Los estudios recogidos en este volumen intentan reinterpretar los fundamentos de la Política y del Derecho, enmarcados en el horizonte relacional que la fraternidad les abre. Desde esta perspectiva, la fraternidad asume una relevancia política y jurídica en la medida en que se la entienda sustancialmente ligada a la libertad y a la igualdad. Cada una de las tres categorías, en la medida en que sean consideradas conjuntamente, llegan a adquirir su propio significado a través de la relación con las otras. El redescubrimiento de la fraternidad significa por tanto volver a proponer el "tríptico" entero, para recuperar, a través del mismo, el proyecto humanísitico de la modernidad, y liberarnos del destino del conflicto radical al que nuestro tiempo parece condenado: Caín no sólo ha matado a su hermano, sino que también ha fundado la primera ciudad, es decir, el lugar donde la violencia se ve confinada por el gobierno y por las leyes. Abrir el Derecho al horizonte de la fraternidad significa, hoy, llevar la racionalidad jurídica más allá de la mera racionalidad técnica; permitir renovar la relación jurídica, volver a encontrar sus fundamentos humanísticos, redescubriendo una justicia que reconcilia y reconstruye, fortificando el vínculo social. Considerar la fraternidad una categoría política significa poder emitir juicios políticos, capaces de producir un pensamiento político a través de la óptica de la fraternidad; se abandonan así las lógicas de la ideología, para intentar construir una forma de pensamiento en disposición de pasar, de una idea intuitiva de fraternidad, a una definición que la haga operativa, "operacionalizable". Es una tarea que no corresponde hoy a una sola disciplina, sino que interesa a todo el conjunto de los ya numerosos estudiosos que se han enrolado en este frente, interactuando entre sí de manera interdisiciplinar y abriendo un camino en el cual resulte posible, a todos los que han abrazado un humanismo y un ideal político, encontrar las mejores razones de su esperanza.

    Full Text Available The use of desiccants is an alternative to anticipate the soybean harvest and keep the physiological quality of seed. The objective of this work was to assess the production performance and germination seeds in response to differents stages and desiccation chemicals products to early harvest of soybean cultivars. The experiment was conducted in Campos Novos, in two harvests, it was used a randomized complete block design disposed in split-split-plots. Two phenological stages of application (stage R7.1 and R7.3 were tested in the main plot. Five soybean cultivars (NA 5909 RG, CD 2585 RR, BMX Turbo RR, SYN 1059 RR and BENSO 1RR were evaluated in the subplots, and three desiccants ammonium glufosinate, paraquat, carfentrazone-ethyl in the 2011/12 season and one control (without the desiccant application were evaluated in the sub-subplots. In the 2012/13 season the carfentrazone-ethyl was substituted by diquat. It were evaluated the number of the days in the early harvest, yield, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, mass of 100 seeds and germination percentage. The chemical dessecation with the use of glufosinate ammonium and paraquat applied in R7.1 stage allowed to anticipate the harvest in six days (2011/12 and provided maintenance germination percentage (90% and 92% compared to control (76%. The dessecation didn’t influence negatively on seeds productivity, but reduced the mass of seeds in the two growing seasons, and early harvest was dependent of pre-harvest rain absence, with this preamble. The use of dessicants is a possibility of early harvest in production field of soybean seeds.

    Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS®) is a strategy that seeks to reduce patients’ perioperative stress response, thereby reducing potential complications, decreasing hospital length of stay and enabling patients to return more quickly to their baseline functional status. The concept was introduced in the late 1990s and was first adopted in patients undergoing open colorectal surgery. Since then, the concept of ERAS has been adopted by multiple surgical specialties. The diffusion of video-assisted thoracic surgery lobectomy (VATS-L) sets also the surgical treatment of lung cancer as a new area for ERAS development. In this paper, we present the Italian VATS Group (www.vatsgroup.org) surgical protocol as part of the ERAS clinical pathway belonging to the VATS-L national database. PMID:29629203

    "Efficient Solutions and Cost-Optimal Analysis for Existing School Buildings" (Paolo Maria Congedo, Delia D'Agostino, Cristina Baglivo, Giuliano Tornese, Ilaria Zacà) [1] is the paper that refers to this article. It reports the data related to the establishment of several variants of energy efficient retrofit measures selected for two existing school buildings located in the Mediterranean area. In compliance with the cost-optimal analysis described in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and its guidelines (EU, Directive, EU 244,) [2], [3], these data are useful for the integration of renewable energy sources and high performance technical systems for school renovation. The data of cost-efficient high performance solutions are provided in tables that are explained within the following sections. The data focus on the describe school refurbishment sector to which European policies and investments are directed. A methodological approach already used in previous studies about new buildings is followed (Baglivo Cristina, Congedo Paolo Maria, D׳Agostino Delia, Zacà Ilaria, 2015; IlariaZacà, Delia D'Agostino, Paolo Maria Congedo, Cristina Baglivo; Baglivo Cristina, Congedo Paolo Maria, D'Agostino Delia, Zacà Ilaria, 2015; Ilaria Zacà, Delia D'Agostino, Paolo Maria Congedo, Cristina Baglivo, 2015; Paolo Maria Congedo, Cristina Baglivo, IlariaZacà, Delia D'Agostino,2015) [4], [5], [6], [7], [8]. The files give the cost-optimal solutions for a kindergarten (REF1) and a nursery (REF2) school located in Sanarica and Squinzano (province of Lecce Southern Italy). The two reference buildings differ for construction period, materials and systems. The eleven tables provided contain data about the localization of the buildings, geometrical features and thermal properties of the envelope, as well as the energy efficiency measures related to walls, windows, heating, cooling, dhw and renewables. Output values of energy consumption, gas emission and costs are given for a

    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.

  6. Interaction and Mindreading

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Michael, John Andrew

    2011-01-01

    In recent years, a number of theorists have developed approaches to social cognition that highlight the centrality of social interaction as opposed to mindreading (e.g. Gallagher and Zahavi 2008; Gallagher 2001, 2007, 2008; Hobson 2002; Reddy 2008; Hutto 2004; De Jaegher 2009; De Jaegher and Di...... Paolo 2007; Fuchs and De Jaegher 2009; De Jaegher, Di Paolo and Gallagher 2010). There are important differences among these approaches, as I will discuss, but they are united by their commitment to the claim that various embodied and extended processes sustain social understanding and interaction...... will give reasons for being skeptical about. I will then present an alternative and moderate version of interactionism, according to which the embodied and extended processes that interactionists emphasize actually complement mindreading and may even contribute as an input to mindreading....

    Full Text Available Il libro Brás, Bexiga e Barra Funda, di Alcântara Machado, pubblicato nel 1927, tratta della vit di alcuni quartieri poplari di San Paolo (indicati nel titolo dell´opera, obitari da immigranti italiani. Il narratore rappresenta questo universo - ora con simpatia ora con ironia - rivelando, in modo chiaro o tra le righe, gli sterotipi in voga in quel periodo sugli italiani arrivati da poco, che non conoscevano ancora la lingua e le tradizioni del Brasile, ma desideravano raggiungere rapidamente una posizione social ed economica elevata, per conquistare un posto nella nuova società. Nell´articolo si propone una lettura dello scontro fra gli immigranti e la società brasiliana, scontro filtrato nei racconti che presentano - con straordinaria vivacità - il quotidiano dei quartieri popolari di San Paolo, proprio nel momento in cui vari gruppi di immigranti stanno vivendo il processo di integrazione e assimilazione.

  20. The French Jesuit Mission to Thailand in the 1680s and the Establishment of a Major Astronomical Observatory

    2012-09-01

    The first great Thai ruler to encourage the adoption of Western culture and technology was King Narai, and his enlightened attitude led to the rapid development of Thailand. King Narai also had a passion for astronomy, and he pursued this interest by allowing French Jesuit missionaries to set up a large modern well-equipped astronomical observatory in Lopburi Province between AD 1685 and 1687. This was known as the Wat San Paolo Observatory, and King Narai and the missionaries observed a total lunar eclipse on 10 December 1685 and a partial solar eclipse on 30 April 1688. These observations and others made at Wat San Paolo Observatory during the 1680s marked the start of modern scientific astronomy in Thailand. In this paper we discuss King Narai's scientific and other interests, the founding of the Wat San Paolo Observatory, the missionaries who conducted the astronomical programs, their instruments and their observations. We also describe the surviving ruins of the Observatory and their interpretation as a site of national scientific importance in Thailand.

    Full Text Available Desde que Alfredo Binet hizo por vez primera tests de runos débiles mentales ha sido aspiración de las ciencias afines a la Psicología, la Neurología y la Neuro-Psicología probar que eran tan útiles a la vida práctica como la Física lo es para la técnica. La Psicología experimental abrió el camino a la investigación de los problemas de la conducta humana, precisando en algunos aspectos sus acciones y reacciones frente a determinados estímulos del medio ambiente y a la posición en que la colocan de hecho sus condiciones fisiológicas y estados constitucionales. Sin embargo, la actitud de la mayoría de los investigadores y de los profanos es escéptica. Casi todos han rechazado como inutilizables los descubrimientos de la psicología del niño y, como lo afirma Charlotte Bühler, han acudido exclusivamente a las enseñanzas del psico-análisis de Sigmund Freud y sus secuaces o de la psicología individual de Alfredo Adler.

  3. General background and approach to multibody dynamics for space applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Santini, Paolo; Gasbarri, Paolo

    2009-06-01

    Multibody dynamics for space applications is dictated by space environment such as space-varying gravity forces, orbital and attitude perturbations, control forces if any. Several methods and formulations devoted to the modeling of flexible bodies undergoing large overall motions were developed in recent years. Most of these different formulations were aimed to face one of the main problems concerning the analysis of spacecraft dynamics namely the reduction of computer simulation time. By virtue of this, the use of symbolic manipulation, recursive formulation and parallel processing algorithms were proposed. All these approaches fall into two categories, the one based on Newton/Euler methods and the one based on Lagrangian methods; both of them have their advantages and disadvantages although in general, Newtonian approaches lend to a better understanding of the physics of problems and in particular of the magnitude of the reactions and of the corresponding structural stresses. Another important issue which must be addressed carefully in multibody space dynamics is relevant to a correct choice of kinematics variables. In fact, when dealing with flexible multibody system the resulting equations include two different types of state variables, the ones associated with large (rigid) displacements and the ones associated with elastic deformations. These two sets of variables have generally two different time scales if we think of the attitude motion of a satellite whose period of oscillation, due to the gravity gradient effects, is of the same order of magnitude as the orbital period, which is much bigger than the one associated with the structural vibration of the satellite itself. Therefore, the numerical integration of the equations of the system represents a challenging problem. This was the abstract and some of the arguments that Professor Paolo Santini intended to present for the Breakwell Lecture; unfortunately a deadly disease attacked him and shortly took him

    The evolution of the interiors, surfaces, and atmospheres of solid bodies in the solar system is affected by interplanetary collisions. From Mercury to the outskirts of the solar system, collisions with leftover planetesimals -asteroids, comets and their debris- provide a primary evolutionary process. Impact craters mark this evolution and provide a diagnostic tool, which coupled with modeling and, when possible, sample analysis, allow us to unravel the ancient history of the solar system. In this prize talk, I will present a few selected cutting-edge research topics at the frontier between modeling and space exploration that without any doubt would have deeply interested the curious mind of Paolo Farinella.

  5. Dark fragments: contrasting corporealities in Pasolini's La ricotta

    OpenAIRE

    Murphy, Jill

    2014-01-01

    The short film La ricotta (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1963) tells the story of Stracci, an extra working on a film of the life of Christ, which is presented in part via tableaux vivants of Mannerist paintings. Pasolini’s film is replete with formal, stylistic and narrative binaries. In this article, I examine a particularly emphatic binary in the film in the form of the abstract, ethereal corporeality of the Mannerist paintings versus the raw and bawdy corporeality of Stracci. I show that through t...

    Here we provide reflections of and a tribute to John M. Olson, a pioneering researcher in photosynthesis. We trace his career, which began at Wesleyan University and the University of Pennsylvania, and continued at Utrech in The Netherlands, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Odense University in Denmark. He was the world expert on pigment organization in the green photosynthetic bacteria, and discovered and characterized the first chlorophyll-containing protein, which has come to be known as the Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) protein. He also thought and wrote extensively on the origin and early evolution of photosynthesis. We include personal comments from Brian Matthews, Raymond Cox, Paolo Gerola, Beverly Pierson and Jon Olson.

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available Alfredo de Carvalho (1870-1916 has been placed in the Brazilian historiography among the critics of the obscurantism practiced by the Portuguese colonizers 1. His reasoning was that by imposing on Brazil a “regime of systematic reclusion”, Portugal created diffi culties for the sedimentation “of our current nationality” and retarded “the synchronic evolution of many of its cultural elements”2. For this very reason he became the harbinger of preservation of the memory of the press, an indispensable source for the comprehension of our civilizing process. Reiterating Carvalho, many others have declared that, since the arrival of Cabral on Brazil´s northeastern shore in 1500, the “gag syndrome” was projected over our territory. Consequently, it has impeded economic development, made political autonomy impractical and inhibited the fl ourishing of culture.

    Full Text Available The cultural magazine Nosotros, founded in Buenos Aires by Alfredo Bianchi and Roberto Giusti, occupied an undisputed place in Argentine culture during the first half of the 20th century. This article offers a reconstruction of its editorial group in the period between 1907 and 1920, from a perspective of social and intellectual history. It suggests that the institutionalization of the editorial group around a Cooperative Society was decisive in its growth as a magazine and publishing house, as was its management by the poet Rafael Obligado, since Nosotros would soon become a prolific publishing label. Under the influence of World War I and the Russian Revolution, the magazine went through intense political and ideological debates that undermined the cohesion of the editorial group and threatened its continuity. The history of the magazine is reconstructed here on the basis of a wide variety of sources (correspondence, a complete collection of the magazine, and memoirs from the period.

Stroessner fez uso da legitimação e aceitação da violência como elemento de controle da ordem e para legitimar um poder político. Estas ideias existentes antes do começo do regime do ditador foram reforçadas durante o período da Guerra Fria, permitindo que essa ditadura se mantivesse por muitos anos. Compreende-se que o regime de Stroessner é a concretização do desejo de gerar e controlar a ordem social, que tomaria proporções incontroláveis pelo contexto da Guerra Fria.

    On the occasion of the critique of Alfredo Gaete and Carlos Cornejo, this article explains and extends the hybrid theory of the mind that I recently presented in this journal. Taking inspiration from Rom Harré’s program for a hybrid psychology, the theory is supposed to be integrative and aims...... to broaden Harré’s hybrid psychology by including not just the brain, but also the body, social practices, and technological artifacts as mediators of the mind. The mind is understood not as a substance of any kind, but as a set of skills and dispositions to act, think, and feel. This implies a normative...... view of the mind, according to which psychological phenomena do not simply happen, but are done, and can consequently be done more or less well. I provide arguments in favor of grounding psychology in normativity rather than conscious experience, and I explain why the emphasis on mediators does...

History and caracters shaped to some Félix Moral taste, get their final shape in an unfinished script, faithfull to the deeds, as describing another version of the reality for a failed film production about the same theme and a melodramatic atmosphere. That configuration, as well as a third one as an historical point of view from R. F. Burton, can be seen in Mathias Grünewald’s paintings and Cándido López’s works. All as a fiction that includes a testimonial nature, literary dimension and symbolic value.

    Full Text Available As revisões sobre os estudos clássicos de família no Brasil convergem na crítica ao patriarcalismo como modelo genérico e fixo de descrição dessa instituição, propondo que a família brasileira era uma pluralidade dispersa de experiências. Sugerimos que já nas narrativas ensaísticas sobre a identidade nacional existem modelos plurais de família brasileira, diversificados em termos da compreensão dos arranjos locais de relações familiares. Com esse objetivo, relemos, sob o eixo família-nação-região, dois conjuntos de ensaístas significativos para a construção de identidades regionais particulares (primeiro, Alfredo Ellis Jr. e Cassiano Ricardo; segundo, Alceu Amoroso Lima e Sylvio de Vasconcellos, pensadores/produtores de visões de São Paulo e de Minas Gerais, respectivamente, enquanto culturas e sociedades em grande parte caracterizadas por suas experiências de organização familiar própria.Revisions of classical studies of the family in Brazil agree in criticizing patriarchalism as a general and fixed model describing this institution, arguing that the Brazilian family was a plurality of dispersed experiences. We suggest that in the essay narratives of national identity there are already plural models of the Brazilian family, which are diversified according to local arrangements of family relations. Considering the themes family-nation-region, we review the work of two groups of important essayists on the construction of particular regional identities: Alfredo Ellis Jr. e Cassiano Ricardo; Alceu Amoroso Lima e Sylvio de Vasconcellos. We argue that these essayists articulated visions of São Paulo and Minas Gerais as cultures and societies characterized in a significant way by experiences of a proper family organization.

Mechanical ventilation is standard care, but long-term complications, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, are still largely reported. Therefore, continuous medical education is mandatory to correctly manage devices for assistance. Commercially available breathing function simulators are rarely suitable for the anatomical and physiological realities. The aim of this study is to develop a high-fidelity mechatronic simulator of neonatal airways and lungs for staff training and mechanical ventilator testing. The project is divided into three different phases: (1 a review study on respiratory physiology and pathophysiology and on already available single and multi-compartment models; (2 the prototyping phase; and (3 the on-field system validation. Keywords: simulation, lung, newborn, continuous medical education, respiratory system

In una fase di ristrutturazioni interne, la Banca Nazionale del Lavoro ha concordato la cessione della proprietà della rivista stessa e della sua consorella Quarterly Review all' Associazione Paolo Sylos Labini, mantenendo un collegamento tramite una sponsorizzazione. In questo modo è stato possibile salvare due riviste con una storia lunga e prestigiosa, conservandone intatto l'orientamento verso la ricerca e il dibattito scientifico nel campo della teoria e della politica economica, con attenzione particolare ma non esclusiva per gli aspetti monetari e finanziari e senza alcuna preconcetta scelta di campo tra le diverse scuole di pensiero. With this special issue opens a new era in the history of our magazine.

    Full Text Available Recent exhibitions produced by the Foundation La Luz de las Imágenes in Valencian dioceses has allowed for numerous works of art to be seen, admired and studied under optimal conditions. In this context we offer an approach to the workshop of the Requena family, painters active in the Kingdom of Valencia between approximately 1531 and 1605. These artists, in their uneven production, owed much to Paolo da San Leocadio, the Hernandos and particularly, Joan de Joanes.

    Las recientes exposiciones que viene realizando la Fundación “La Luz de las Imágenes” en el ámbito de las distintas diócesis valencianas no sólo ha acercado al público numerosas obras de arte en condiciones de ser vistas y admiradas, sino que también ha posibilitado su estudio.

One of the most common benefits of swimming in a school is the hydrodynamic and energetic advantage obtained by its members. Fish occupying non-frontal positions can benefit from the flow...... generated by the caudal movement of fish swimming in the front. While previous work has demonstrated that trailing fish show a lower tail beat frequency (TBF) than leading fish , the extent to which schooling provides hydrodynamic advantages compared to swimming alone has not been quantified. We quantified...... of distances along the direction of locomotion, spanning one body length (BL) in the front (+1 BL) and behind (-1 BL) a neighbouring fish.

  5. Quando la libertà prevale sulla morale: la pubblicità

    Nicola Colaianni

    2018-02-01

    ABSTRACT: This article examines the case Sekmadienis v. Lithuania, where the European Court of human rights found that the advertisements by a clothing company, despite using models and captions referring to “Jesus” and “Mary”, did not offend public morals. Nevertheless the balancing in favour, for once, of freedom of expression is due not to a revirement but, essentially, to two factors: the advertisements neither were gratuitously offensive nor incited hatred and, on the other hand, domestic authorities did not provide sufficient justifications for why such use of religious symbols would had been contrary to public morals. Therefore, it’s an assertion not of secularism in front of religion but – the author says quoting Pier Paolo Pasolini - a new laicity, that does not compete with religion: the advertising laicity, born in middle-class entropy.

  6. Political space and boundaries in the late medieval juridical science

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paolo Marchetti

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available In what Paolo Grossi calls «the sapiential Middle Ages» jurists engaged themselves in defining a set of rules aiming at the settlement of boundary disputes, which previously were not established by any normative text. The Corpus Iuris concerns nearly exclusively boundary disputes between private individuals. References to texts of the Roman law were meant to give ‘authority’ to resolutions often based upon customary praxis. The norms elaborated by Middle Ages jurists are thus given a formal legal shape; yet, they are linked to a perception of the boundaries between communities that was affected by the displacements, the customs, the common needs of everyday life. On the other side the existence of actual neat demarcations was linked to the exertion of certain rights and privileges rather than to an exclusive and absolute political claim.

    Full Text Available The article deals with Trieste as centre of the troubled eastern Italian border. Ivan Verč claims that Trieste’s border area has been "not semiotized" by Italian culture: the complexity of what lays beyond being reduced to a generic Slavic East. This hypothesis is interpreted on the one hand on the background of Trieste’s history in the 19th and 20th century. On the other hand it is reconsidered through the reflections of the Triestine psychoanalyst Paolo Fonda: the absence of conscious semiosis is the product of intense fears and desires that pervade the construction of ethnic identities in Trieste. Fonda’s exhortation to a more balanced depressive position (Melanie Klein recalls the pleading of other intellectuals (e.g. Verč for a not naïf but dynamic concept of cultural dialogue.

In this short introduction I situate their contributions in what I see as important aspects of the bigger picture that is motivating and inspiring them as well as the rest of this young community. In particular, I sketch some of the social issues that go beyond mere academic debate, including how the methods and assumptions that inform orthodox cognitive science are intrinsically related to the critical state of affairs in our world today. I conclude with some personal recollections in order to give an idea of the context in which their ideas, and mine as well, came to fruition.

    Sammern, Romana

    2015-01-01

    Alongside Richard Haydocke's translation of Giovanni Paolo Lomazzo's treatise on painting (1598), the article examines concepts of color concerning cosmetics, painting and complexion as they relate to aesthetics, artistic and medical practice in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Beginning with white and red as ideal colors of beauty in Agnolo Firenzuola's Discourse on the beauty of women (1541), the essay places color in relation to major issues in art, medicine and empiricism by discussing beauty as a quality of humoral theory and its colors as visual results of physiological processes. Challenging the relation of art and nature, gender and production, Lomazzo's account of complexion and Haydocke's additions on cosmetic practices and face-painting provide key passages that shed light on the relation of cosmetics colors, art writing and artistic practices at the convergence of the body, art and medicine in the context of the emerging English virtuosi around 1600.

    2013-08-01

    The pervasive influence of the Oedipus complex on world culture is a given, yet throughout the long history of motion pictures only one major filmmaker has tackled the literary source that inspired Freud. The film, Edipo Re, directed by Italian poet, novelist, and social and political activist Pier Paolo Pasolini, not only reconstructs the myth and adapts Sophocles' tragedy, but uses both as a basis of cinematic autobiography. This paper is a detailed analysis of the formal, stylistic, and thematic dimensions of this film, illustrating the complex manner in which Pasolini interweaves myth, play, and autobiography into a unique cinematic achievement. This analysis is followed by speculations on the implications of the film's structure and techniques and on what they reveal about Pasolini's character, his sexual profile, and the ignominious murder that ended his life.

For simplicity, the objectives of treatment can be reduced to three typical situations: the lethal perinatal form (type II, in which the problem is survival at birth; the severe and moderate forms (types III–IX, in which the objective is ‘autonomy’; and the mild form (type I, in which the aim is to reach ‘normal life’. Three types of treatment are available: non-surgical management (physical therapy, rehabilitation, bracing and splinting, surgical management (intramedullary rod positioning, spinal and basilar impression surgery and medical-pharmacological management (drugs to increase the strength of bone and decrease the number of fractures as bisphosphonates or growth hormone, depending on the type of OI.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Angelo Bencivenga

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available Una definizione classica inquadra il paesaggio come natura percepita attraverso una cultura. Sulla "storicità" del paesaggio, alcuni autori hanno sottolineato la capacità del cinema di registrare le trasformazioni del territorio e allo stesso tempo di orientare lo sguardo su di esso. La Basilicata, a partire dal secondo dopoguerra, è stata terra di cinema; più di quaranta produzioni cinematografiche sono state realizzate sul suolo lucano. Una tendenza dominante, da Il Vangelo secondo Matteo di Pier Paolo Pasolini a Cristo si è fermato a Eboli di Francesco Rosi, ha messo in luce la condizione di miseria e arretratezza della Basilicata, influenzata da autori come Carlo Levi ed Ernesto De Martino. Interessante è il caso di Matera che, da espressione cinematografica di tale tendenza interpretativa, è diventata teatro di opere filmiche - come The Passion di Mel Gibson - che hanno contribuito a formare l'immagine di una città quasi mistica e culturalmente attiva. A classical definition of landscape is "nature perceived through a culture". On the "historicity" of the landscape, some authors have underlined the cinema’s capacity  to register the transformations of the territory and, at the same time, to direct the gaze on it. Since the end of the Second World War, the Basilicata region has been a film location; more than forty full length movies have been shot in Basilicata. Most of them, from The gospel according to St. Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini to Christ stopped at Eboli by Francesco Rosi, have shown the misery and the backwardness of Basilicata, inspired by the works of some authors as Carlo Levi and Ernesto De Martino. Matera is an interesting case study: from expression of this cinematic representation, in the last years it has become the location of some movies - like The Passion by Mel Gibson - that have had an important role in building the image of Matera as an almost mystic and culturally dynamic city.

    Spectroscopic and colorimetric analysis of a representative set of Dugès watercolor paintings was performed. These paintings were the result of scientific studies carried out by the zoologist Alfredo Dugès, who recorded the fauna of the Mexican Republic between 1853 and 1910. Micro-Raman spectroscopy, with an excitation wavelength of 830 nm, and colorimetric techniques were employed in order to understand if different colors with the same hue were reproduced using the same pigments. The color coordinates of the measured areas were obtained in the CIE L* a* b* color space. Raman analysis showed that, in some cases, to reproduce colors with the same hue the pigment employed was not the same. Pigments identified in the watercolors were vermilion, carbon-based black, lead white, gamboge and chrome yellow, Prussian and ultramarine blue. Some of these pigments have been used since ancient times, others as Prussian blue, chrome yellow and synthetic ultramarine blue arrived to the market at the beginning of the 18th and 19th centuries, respectively. Furthermore, regarding the white color, instead of left the paper unpainted, lead white was detected in the eye of a bird. The green color was obtained by mixing Prussian blue with chrome yellow. The results of this work show the suitability of using Raman spectroscopy for watercolor pigment analysis and colorimetric techniques to measure the color of small areas (246 μm × 246 μm) that was the case for the lead white pigment.

In an effort to solve these problems without changing the traditional model, we modified the wood type and thickness of vinegar barrels. We acetified in triplicate in barrels made of acacia, cherry, chestnut, and oak and in three wood thicknesses (15, 20, and 25 mm in two different vinegar plants. The operating volume was set at 60 L. Reducing wood thickness improved neither maximum acetification velocity or the total length of the process, and in some cases even worsened them. The process took longer in oak barrels than in other types of wood barrel in one of the vinegar plants. Therefore, the choice of wood is a parameter to be considered in the wine vinegar production.

Questiona a educação homogeneizadora promovida para o campo, que, segundo Paulo Freire e Alfredo Bosi, despreza culturas e línguas do povo. Analisa dados produzidos em grupos de pesquisa, com discussões acumuladas, registros nos diários de campo e arquivos de fotos. Executa uma revisão crítica da produção teórico-científica sobre o tema com leitura interpretativa. Avalia dificuldades históricas experimentadas por esse povo tradicional no Estado do Espírito Santo no processo de escolarização. Inscreve-se no debate sobre ações afirmativas que promovem, atualmente, avanços nos aspectos legais e conceituais para a formação dos sujeitos em contextos rurais. As análises permitem identificar aumento de pesquisa acadêmica e maior interesse em encontrar propostas alternativas para superar problemas históricos, como a invisibilidade do conhecimento, da língua e da cultura do Povo Tradicional Pomerano.

    Full Text Available Inspirado en la idea original del artista plástico Alfredo Salomón y bajo el título de Bio-lencia, se creó un sistema en tiempo real que integra dos áreas del conocimiento: Arte y Computación. En este artículo analizamos, las características de la pieza como un producto de software y los retos que este tipo de productos presentan desde el punto de vista de la ingeniería de software. Presentamos una clasificación para el arte de medios inestables destacando sus características como productos de software y se realiza un ejercicio de producción de una pieza de este tipo utilizando metodologías ágiles de desarrollo. En particular discutimos la utilización de la Programación Extrema, la cual en el caso que aquí se presenta, permitió interactuar correctamente con el artista, quien es también el desarrollador principal. Se menciona también como las características de confiabilidad, robustez y tiempo de respuesta fueron de particular importancia para la correcta evaluación y funcionamiento del software que da vida a Bio-lencia. Finalmente como parte de las conclusiones se discuten los problemas y las lecciones que aprendimos durante el desarrollo de Bio-lencia.

    Full Text Available Este artículo analiza la crisis de 1952, la aplicación y el impacto del "Plan de Emergencia Económica". Tomando distancia de la interpretación que sostiene que el gobierno de Perón inició un cambio de rumbo en respuesta al grave deterioro económico, este trabajo analiza la elaboración y aplicación del primer plan de estabilización de posguerra. Sobre la base de documentos reservados del gabinete económico liderado por Alfredo Gómez Morales, evaluamos las características del programa, las controversias internas en torno a las medidas que debían tomarse para enfrentar la recesión y los condicionantes económicos y sociales. A propósito de ello, este trabajo se propone contribuir a una discusión más amplia sobre los complejos vínculos entre peronismo, ´populismo´ y economía.

    Full Text Available The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine was started in June 1899. The following year, two of its staff members, Herbert Edward Durham (1866-1945 and Walter Myers (1872-1901, traveled to Belém, in Brazil, to conduct research on yellow fever. During a stop-over in Havana, they had the opportunity to meet with U.S. scientists studying the disease there. Durham and Myers brought with them the hypothesis that yellow fever was transmitted by a host insect, much like malaria, whose transmission had recently been deciphered by British and Italian researchers. Yet in Brazil, they persisted in the hypothesis of a bacterial etiology, rather than adopting the breakthrough approach to yellow fever that had been made possible by the program in tropical medicine. This paradox can be explained by examining both Durham's and Myers' backgrounds, which were interwoven with that of another researcher, Alfredo Antunes Kanthack (1863-1898, who was born in Bahia and was one of the central protagonists in the institution of microbiology and immunology in England.

    Full Text Available Este artigo objetiva elucidar os conceitos e características da hermenêutica, segundo Alfredo Bosi e Richard Palmer, e da metaficção, segundo Linda Hutcheon, Patrícia Waugh e Gustavo Bernardo. A partir das considerações e do posicionamento hermenêutico adotado, será feita uma pesquisa acerca da vida e obra de Daniel Galera para entender o contexto no qual o livro Cordilheira foi escrito e também para que se possa obter uma interpretação aprofundada da obra. Nesta análise é possível identificar a metaficção que, segundo Linda Hutcheon, é uma “ficção sobre ficção”. Ao final do artigo pode-se concluir que o leitor que desconhece o posicionamento hermenêutico e a visão metaficcional não consegue captar o sentido do texto. A interpretação requer um leitor específico, empenhado e entregue à obra, por isso o texto metaficcional só se torna compreensível e, consequentemente, interessante, a um leitor mais preparado.

Antiretroviral therapy combined with cytotoxic agents has been established as the treatment of choice in the past 10 years. Among chemotherapeutic agents, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin has become the preferred one for patients with HIV-associated Kaposi’s sarcoma in Western countries. The drug in this formulation localizes better to the tumor and has higher efficacy. Skin toxicity, mucositis, and leukopenia/neutropenia are the main side effects. Hepatotoxicity and mild cardiotoxicity are observed less frequently. Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin impacts favorably on quality of life. Although cost effective in Western countries, the drug is less so in developing countries.Keywords: pegylated liposomal doxorubicin, Kaposi’s sarcoma, HIV infection

    In the ambit of an Environmental Health Survey Program relative to a MSW facility, which has been operating near to Lisbon since 1999 a biomonitoring study using human breast milk has been performed. Specific aims of this study were: (1) determine whether living in the vicinity of the incinerator increases dioxin maternal body burden and accordingly perinatal (intra-uterus and lactacional) exposure; (2) to investigate the possibility of increased human exposure to dioxins and dioxin-like compounds via locally produced food items from animal origin. Therefore, levels of dioxins and dioxin-like compounds have been determined in human milk samples collected in the vicinity of the incinerator and in a control area, for comparison. From the same areas, cow and sheep milk and eggs from free-range chickens have also been collected to get an indication of possible local additional exposure to air-borne dioxins via the food chain. Analyses of TCDD-equivalents (TEQs) were mainly performed with a reporter gene assay for dioxin-like activity, the DR-CALUX bioassay (Dioxin Responsive Chemical Activated LUciferase gene eXpression).To determine congeners profile, some human milk samples have also been analysed for PCDD/Fs and relevant dioxin-like PCBs, by using high-resolution gas chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS). Both the Ethics Committees of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon, and of the Maternity Dr. Alfredo da Costa have approved the study protocol.

    This study's objective was to evaluate the role of psychological adjustment in the decision-making process to have an abortion and explore individual variables that might influence this decision. In this cross-sectional study, we sequentially enrolled 150 women who made the decision to voluntarily terminate a pregnancy in Maternity Dr. Alfredo da Costa, in Lisbon, Portugal, between September 2008 and June 2009. The instruments were the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS), Satisfaction with Social Support Scale (SSSS), Emotional Assessment Scale (EAS), Decision Conflict Scale (DCS), and Beliefs and Values Questionnaire (BVQ). We analyzed the data using Student's T-tests, MANOVA, ANOVA, Tukey's post-hoc tests and CATPCA. Statistically significant effects were accepted for pdecision difficult and emotionally demanding, although they also identified it as a low conflict decision. The prevailing emotions were sadness, fear and stress; but despite these feelings, the participants remained psychologically adjusted in the moment they decided to have an abortion. The resolution to terminate the pregnancy was essentially shared with supportive people and it was mostly motivated by socio-economic issues. The different beliefs and values found in this sample, and their possible associations are discussed. Despite high levels of stress, the women were psychologically adjusted at the time of making the decision to terminate the pregnancy. However, opposing what has been previously reported, the women presented high levels of sadness and fear, showing that this decision was hard to make, triggering disruptive emotions.

    Full Text Available Kelly S Rue, Louis K Hirsch, Alfredo A SadunDepartment of Neuro-Ophthalmology, Doheny Eye Institute and Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USAAbstract: We describe the course and likely pathophysiology of impending anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION and retinal vein occlusion in a 56-year-old man with polycythemia vera managed with interferon alpha for 2 years. Our patient presented with decreased vision, scintillating scotomata, and floaters. Fundus examination findings and results of a fluorescein angiogram led to the diagnosis of impending AION and retinal vein occlusion. Considering that both polycythemia vera and interferon have possible influences on vascular occlusion and optic disc edema, we stopped interferon treatment and immediately attempted to treat the polycythemia vera empirically with pentoxifylline and any interferon-associated inflammation with prednisone. Our patient experienced complete resolution of fundus abnormalities and return of normal vision within 3 weeks, which may be attributed to our successful treatment of both etiologies. Thus, further study is warranted to elucidate the treatment of both polycythemia vera and interferon-induced impending AION.Keywords: optic disc edema, interferon alpha, vascular occlusion, Roth spot, autoantibody, pentoxifylline

    Full Text Available In analysing a Brazilian daily television programme for children and young people – Bambuluá – I present this cultural artefact as a device used for integrating the pedagogical apparatus of governmental societies, teaching people many things, including a set of truths which make up the curriculum through which we learn to divide the world. I argue that media pedagogies and other artefacts of the cultural industry carry out much of the identity shaping that is undertaken by contemporary neoliberal societies. Authors like Shirley Steinberg, Douglas Kellner and Stuart Hall, along with researchers from a field called Foucaultian studies (Jorge Larrosa, Nikolas Rose, Alfredo Veiga- Neto, have helped me to understand these artefacts as languages which invest in entertainment as a way of producing convenient meanings for political, social and cultural hegemonic projects, putting into operation governmental techniques which conflate consciousness and shape behaviour. They are part of a cultural policy that deploys people and groups hierarchically in the societies in which they live.

    Full Text Available After the 1978 World Cup in Argentina, José Alfredo Martínez de Hoz —then Minister of Economy under the Military Dictatorship— promoted an initiative to publish an article in Time Magazine in which “a real image of Argentina would be given” —in the words of businessman Carlos Pedro Blaquier, strongly close to the military regime—. But who deines the extent of reality of an image? Who makes these “real images” and how do they articulate within the construction of national history and identity? Along this article, and departing from the construction of the past in Argentina through the “real images” produced within the economic and artistic institutions, we will examine the image-based counternarratives propounded by Eduardo Molinari through his Walking Archive and the collaborative project Hegemony. These two contemporary artistic projects focus mainly on the last decades of the 20th century in order to give visibility to the existent relations among economic groups, the military, politicians and the cultural system in Argentina. These relations have provided legitimacy to certain processes of construction of “real” narratives and also to certain artistic practices, while rejecting others.

    Full Text Available La deuda en investigación histórica de medios en América Latina es grande; esfuerzos conjuntos se aprecian en algunos países, como es el caso del Brasil y la Red Alfredo de Carvalho (Rede Alcar. De manera particular, en la historia de la televisión son escasos los abordajes realizados, una gran parte de estos trabajos se centran en describir los procesos de instalación de tecnologías y empresas de televisión, así como de los tipos de programas que ocuparon las parrillas de programación. El interés de este artículo se descentra de ese tipo de estudios para hacer una historia de la televisión que dé cuenta del proceso por el cual una tecnología de información y la comunicación se constituye en medio de comunicación masiva; dicho en otras palabras, el objetivo es explicar cómo la televisión pasa a ser parte integral de la cultura (de masas. Es así que, en esta búsqueda se recurre a una primera revisión de archivo, de la prensa diaria, en particular, el periódico Vanguardia Liberal de Bucaramanga, para rastrear el interés suscitado por el advenimiento de esta tecnología.

    Full Text Available Este estudio, a través de entrevistas aplicadas a los residentes, gerentes, clientes e interpretación cartográfica, caracteriza los efectos sociales, económicos y territoriales que dos tiendas de Walmart (Adolfo López Mateos y Alfredo del Mazo generan en áreas periurbanas de la ciudad de Toluca. La penetración comercial determina la reducción de los costos de localización periférica, la formación de un mercado de lugar de alcance regional, y la organización y uso de la tecnología que mantiene las ventajas competitivas. En esta lógica, la intensidad de uso del territorio muestra la multiplicidad de agentes productivos, actividades económicas, asentamientos humanos y elementos culturales, que identifican la aglomeración comercial como determinante del hecho urbano. No obstante que las externalidades fortalecen las ventajas comparativas del lugar, y los entrevistados las califican positivamente, los efectos negativos plantean el incremento de la vulnerabilidad social y económica local, y la degradación urbana.

    Full Text Available Daniela Pugliese, Carla Felice, Rosario Landi, Alfredo Papa, Luisa Guidi, Alessandro Armuzzi Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unit, Complesso Integrato Columbus, Catholic University, Rome, Italy Abstract: Significant advances in the management of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC have been made since the introduction of anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha agents, especially for those who fail or do not tolerate conventional therapies. Two drugs, infliximab first, then adalimumab afterward, showed effectiveness in inducing and maintaining long-term remission both in pivotal trials as well as in clinical practice. However, approximately 25% of patients with UC, who fail or do not tolerate all available therapies, require a colectomy for refractory disease. The therapeutic scenario of UC has been recently upgraded by the introduction of golimumab, the latest anti TNF-alpha agent to be approved. Golimumab is a totally humanized monoclonal antibody, administered by a subcutaneous injection every 4 weeks. Treatment with golimumab has shown to be effective to induce sustained clinical benefit in tough-to-treat patients with UC, including steroid and/or immunosuppressive refractory and steroid-dependent patients. In this review, we summarize all available efficacy and safety data of golimumab in UC, analyzing the potential therapeutic position for the treatment of refractory patients with UC. Keywords: ulcerative colitis, refractoriness, anti-TNF-alpha, golimumab

    The aim of this case-control study was to obtain a comprehensive panel of genetic polymorphisms present only in genes (cytochrome P-450 1A1--CYP1A1 and catechol-O-methyl transferase--COMT) within the metabolic pathway of sex steroids and determine their possible associations with the presence or absence of cervical cancer. Genotypes of 222 women were analyzed: a) 81 with cancer of the cervix treated at the Cancer Hospital Alfredo Abram, between June 2012 and May 2013, with diagnosis confirmed surgically and/or through histomorphological examination; and b) 141 healthy women who assisted at the Endocrine Gynecology and Climacteric Ambulatory, Department of Gynecology, UNIFESP-EPM. These polymorphisms were detected by polymerase chain reaction amplification-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis and visualized on 3% agarose gels stained with ethidium bromide. We found a significant association between the frequency of the CYP1A1 polymorphism and the development of cervical cancer. A statistical difference was observed between patient and control groups for CYP1A1 polymorphism genotype distributions (P 0.05) or between other risk variables analyzed. The CYP1A1 gene involved in the metabolic pathway of sex steroids might influence the emergence of pathological conditions such as cervical cancer in women who carry a mutated allele, and result in 1.80 and 13.46 times increased risk for women with heterozygous or homozygous mutated genotypes, respectively.

Buscamos demonstrar, a partir de uma pesquisa empírica e teórica, as relações entres duas Comunidades Eclesiais de Base, a Comunidade San Paolo (Roma-IT e a Prelazia de São Félix (Mato Gross-BR, demonstrando que estas baseiam-se em dois elementos: resultam das discussões  advindas do Concílio Vaticano II e estão fortemente ligadas a seus líderes. E, ainda, que tais comunidades ligam-se por fortes laços simbólicos. Este fato permitiu-nos concluir  que a Teologia da Libertação empenhou-se em promover mudanças sociais e em criar um corpo simbólico que a corroborasse. Tais análises foram sustentadas pela teoria da transformação social de Max Weber e, ainda, pelos estudos  de Karl Mannheim e de  Glock e Stark. Palavras-chaves:Transformação social, Teologia da Libertação, prática, discurso. Abstract This study is a reflection of the discourse and practice on the Basic Ecclesial communities in Brazil and Italy. We try to show, from an empirical and theoretical research, the relations between two Christian Base Communities: the San Paolo Community (Rome – IT and the Prelature of São Félix (BR – Mato Grosso, based on two factors: the result of discussions arising out of Vatican II, and the strong link to its leaders. Such communities bind by strong symbolic ties that really allowed us to conclude that Liberation Theology endeavored to promote social changes and to create a symbolic body that corroborates it. Such analysis was supported by the theory of social transformation of Max Weber, by the studies of Karl Mannheim and Glock and Stark.

    The conference Swift: 10 years of discovery was held in Roma at La Sapienza University on Dec. 2-5 2014 to celebrate 10 years of Swift successes. Thanks to a large attendance and a lively program, it provided the opportunity to review recent advances of our knowledge of the high-energy transient Universe both from the observational and theoretical sides. When Swift was launched on November 20, 2004, its prime objective was to chase Gamma-Ray Bursts and deepen our knowledge of these cosmic explosions. And so it did, unveiling the secrets of long and short GRBs. However, its multi-wavelength instrumentation and fast scheduling capabilities made it the most versatile mission ever flown. Besides GRBs, Swift has observed, and contributed to our understanding of, an impressive variety of targets including AGNs, supernovae, pulsars, microquasars, novae, variable stars, comets, and much more. Swift is continuously discovering rare and surprising events distributed over a wide range of redshifts, out to the most distant transient objects in the Universe. Such a trove of discoveries has been addressed during the conference with sessions dedicated to each class of events. Indeed, the conference in Rome was a spectacular celebration of the Swift 10th anniversary. It included sessions on all types of transient and steady sources. Top scientists from around the world gave invited and contributed talks. There was a large poster session, sumptuous lunches, news interviews and a glorious banquet with officials attending from INAF and ASI. All the presentations, as well as several conference pictures, can be found in the conference website (http://www.brera.inaf.it/Swift10/Welcome.html). These proceedings have been collected owing to the efforts of Paolo D’Avanzo who has followed each paper from submission to final acceptance. Our warmest thanks to Paolo for all his work. The Conference has been made possible by the support from La Sapienza University as well as from the ARAP

Parodi Delfino, Colleferro, Roma, 3Sant’Anna Hospital, ASST-Lariana, Como, Italy Abstract: Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT, a very frequent, severe, and worsening complication of chronic kidney disease, is characterized by high serum parathyroid hormone (PTH, parathyroid gland hyperplasia, and disturbances in mineral metabolism. Clinically, SHPT shows renal osteodystrophy, vascular calcification, cardiovascular damage, and fatal outcome. Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR is the main physiological regulator of PTH secretion; its activation by calcium rapidly inhibits PTH. Another important player in regulating mineral metabolism is vitamin D receptor (VDR, which is under the influence of vitamin D and influences the intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate, PTH gene expression, and bone calcium mobilization. Serum phosphate levels influence fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23 production, a phosphatonin that modulates serum phosphate reabsorption, PTH synthesis, and vitamin D production. Current therapeutic approaches consist of 1 phosphate intake control by diet or phosphate binders, 2 vitamin D by VDR activation, and 3 calcimimetic agents that activate CaSR. Recently, a new long-acting peptide (etelcalcetide belonging to the calcimimetics class was approved for intravenous use in hemodialysis patients with SHPT. Etelcalcetide binds directly to CaSR, by a sulfide bond, inhibiting the production and secretion of PTH by parathyroid glands. After intravenous administration in rats, etelcalcetide is quickly distributed to the tissues and eliminated by kidneys, while in uremic animals the nonrenal excretion is only 1.2%. In hemodialysis patients, the treatment itself is the

A particular issue is represented by the outcome of NIMV in patients referred to the emergency department for ARF and with a do-not-intubate (DNI status because of advanced age or excessively critical conditions. This study evaluated long-term survival in a group of elderly patients with acute hypercapnic ARF who had a DNI order and who were successfully treated by NIMV.Methods: The population consisted of 54 patients with a favorable outcome after NIMV for ARF. They were followed up for 3 years by regular control visits, with at least one visit every 4 months, or as needed according to the patient’s condition. Of these, 31 continued NIMV at home and 23 were on long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT alone.Results: A total of 16 of the 52 patients had not survived at the 1-year follow-up, and another eight patients died during the 3-year observation, with an overall mortality rate of 30.8% after 1 year and 46.2% after 3 years.

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.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the origin and development of experimental and clinical research about kidney transplant and dialysis in Argentina which were carried out, from 1957, at the Instituto de Investigaciones Médicas (IIM de la Facultad de Medicina, at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA. The aim is to show how these developments were possible due to the convergence of social and cognitive dynamics. The major boost given to research and clinical experience on transplants and dialysis at the IIM was because they were a a central part of the institutional commitment carried out by Alfredo Lanari, the administrative and political authority of the IIM, b a way to continue and take profit of the previous accumulation on local research capacities, human resources and knowledge on transplants and c a consequence of new scientific cooperation links settled between Lanari`s researchers and the international pioneers in this experimental and clinical field, which allowed the acquisition of technical equipment and knowledge applied in the local context. The progressive stabilization of those researches not only gave scientific prestige to the IIM but produced significant changes for Acute Kidney Failure and Chronic Kidney Failure sick people, whose treatment or cure were non-existent for them until then.

    Conference logo The XXXV Symposium on Nuclear Physics was held at Hotel Hacienda Cocoyoc, Morelos, Mexico from January 3-6 2012. Conceived in 1978 as a small meeting, over the years and thanks to the efforts of various organizing committees, the symposium has become a well known international conference on nuclear physics. To the best of our knowledge, the Mexican Symposium on Nuclear Physics represents the conference series with longest tradition in Latin America and one of the longest-running annual nuclear physics conferences in the world. The Symposium brings together leading scientists from all around the world, working in the fields of nuclear structure, nuclear reactions, physics with radioactive ion beams, hadronic physics, nuclear astrophysics, neutron physics and relativistic heavy-ion physics. Its main goal is to provide a relaxed environment where the exchange of ideas, discussion of new results and consolidation of scientific collaboration are encouraged. To celebrate the 35th edition of the symposium 53 colleagues attended from diverse countries including: Argentina, Australia, Canada, Japan, Saudi Arabia and USA. We were happy to have the active participation of Eli F Aguilera, Eduardo Andrade, Octavio Castaños, Alfonso Mondragón, Stuart Pittel and Andrés Sandoval who also participated in the first edition of the Symposium back in 1978. We were joined by old friends of Cocoyoc (Stuart Pittel, Osvaldo Civitarese, Piet Van Isacker, Jerry Draayer and Alfredo Galindo-Uribarri) as well as several first time visitors that we hope will come back to this scientific meeting in the forthcoming years. The scientific program consisted of 33 invited talks, proposed by the international advisory committee, which nicely covered the topics of the Symposium giving a balanced perspective between the experimental and the theoretical work that is currently underway in each line of research. Fifteen posters complemented the scientific sessions giving the opportunity

    Full Text Available Fragmento.El estudio y conocimiento del sistema endocrino clásico lleva ya más de un siglo, a partir del descubrimiento de la Secretina por los fisiólogos británicos Bayliss y Starling, quienes lo propusieron como un sistema de control celular. La propuesta llegaba para complementar lo planteado por Pavlov, quien consideraba al sistema nervioso como único sistema regulador. Que lo uno no excluye lo otro, se sabe desde hace algún tiempo. Los sistemas endocrino, nervioso e inmune, de manera integrada, regulan todos los otros aparatos y órganos. Aprender sobre estos mecanismos de la biología molecular nos permite perfeccionar nuestro conocimiento sobre las hormonas y sus acciones sobre la función general de órganos específicos.En 1972, el endocrinólogo Alfredo Jácome Roca, docente por excelencia, se propuso compartir su conocimiento sobre la fisiología endocrina con los estudiantes de medicina de la Universidad Javeriana y de otras escuelas médicas colombianas. Fue así como editó su primer texto con el sello de la Editorial El Ateneo de Buenos Aires, explicando las interrelaciones glandulares con el medio interno y propuso una aproximación de estas a la práctica clínica. Pasaron los años, los descubrimientos avanzaron y El Ateneo publicó su segunda edición en 1979. Al terminar el siglo XX e iniciarse una nueva era con conceptos nuevos y revolucionarios, decidió lanzar una tercera edición de este valioso texto de enseñanza médica en 2005, esta vez con el patrocinio de la Academia Nacional de Medicina de Colombia, plasmando allí los nuevos avances en el conocimiento.

    Full Text Available Leprosy is an ancient infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae. According to comparative genomics studies, this disease originated in Eastern Africa or the Near East and spread with successive human migrations. The Europeans and North Africans introduced leprosy into West Africa and the Americas within the past 500 years. In Brazil, this disease arrived with the colonizers who disembarked at the first colonies, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Recife, at the end of the sixteenth century, after which it was spread to the other states. In 1854, the first leprosy cases were identified in State of Amazonas in the north of Brazil. The increasing number of leprosy cases and the need for treatment and disease control led to the creation of places to isolate patients, known as leprosaria. One of them, Colonia Antônio Aleixo was built in Amazonas in 1956 according to the most advanced recommendations for isolation at that time and was deactivated in 1979. The history of the Alfredo da Matta Center (AMC, which was the first leprosy dispensary created in 1955, parallels the history of leprosy in the state. Over the years, the AMC has become one of the best training centers for leprosy, general dermatology and sexually transmitted diseases in Brazil. In addition to being responsible for leprosy control programs in the state, the AMC has carried out training programs on leprosy diagnosis and treatment for health professionals in Manaus and other municipalities of the state, aiming to increase the coverage of leprosy control activities. This paper provides a historical overview of leprosy in State of Amazonas, which is an endemic state in Brazil.

    The biocultural ethic recovers an understanding of the vital links between the life habits of the coinhabitants (humans and other-than-human) that share a habitat. The ″3Hs″ formal framework of the biocultural ethics provides a conceptual and methodological tool to understand and to better manage complex eco-social or biocultural systems in heterogeneous regions of the planet. From the global bioethics originally proposed by V.R. Potter, the integration of theory and praxis promoted by Alfredo Pradenas in the Bioethics Society of Chile, and the conceptual framework of biocultural ethics (including traditions of philosophical thought, scientific and Amerindians), I develop a comparative analysis of: 1. an ecosystemic and intercultural concept of the human body, 2. an intercultural understanding of health with complementary Western and Native American medicinal practices, and 3. an appreciation and respect for the fundamental links among the life habits, the habitats where they take place, and the well-being and identity of the communities of cohabitants. Implicit links in the ″3Hs″ biocultural ethics are present in the archaic meanings of the term ethos. This understanding retrieves a primordial root in the genesis of Western ethics, which did not start bounded to how to inhabit or dwell, but also considered where to inhabit and with whom to co-inhabit. I propose to restore the complexity and breadth of the concept of ethics originated in Ancient Greece, to reaffirm the common roots of bioethics and environmental ethics contained in Potter's global bioethics, and to incorporate the systemic and contextual perspective of the biocultural ethic that values biological and cultural diversity (and their interrelationships), to sustain a conception of human health interconnected with the sustainability of the biosphere.

This trend has prompted the emergence of a debate on the risks and benefits associated with cesarean section. The present study was designed to estimate cesarean section rates over time during the period between 2000 and 2010 in Peru and to present outcomes for each mode of delivery. This is a secondary analysis of a large database obtained from the Perinatal Information System, which includes 570,997 pregnant women and their babies from 43 Peruvian public health facilities in three geographical regions: coast, highlands, and jungle. Over 10 years, 558,901 women delivered 563,668 infants weighing at least 500 g. The cesarean section rate increased from 25.5% in 2000 to 29.9% in 2010 (26.9% average; P < 0.01. The rate of stillbirths was lower with cesarean than vaginal deliveries (P < 0.01. On the other hand, and as expected, the rates for preterm births, twin pregnancies, and preeclampsia were higher in women who delivered by cesarean section (P < 0.01. More importantly, the rate of maternal mortality was 5.5 times higher in the cesarean section group than in the vaginal delivery group. Data suggest that cesarean sections are associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.Keywords: elective cesarean, emergency cesarean, geographical regions, cesarean rates over time, adverse outcomes, developing country

    The Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) constitutes a sub-epidemic in Brazil. Due to the increasing number of women infected by the virus, the vertical transmission increased substantially, and due to the lack of adequate prophylactic treatment, many children are infected and show manifestations of the disease in early ages. Multiple systems are affected by the HIV virus, and the skin is often the first organ to be involved. The objective of this study is to analyze the clinic, dermatological and epidemiological profiles of children carriers of the virus in the City of Manaus aiming at identifying the most frequent dermatoses that affect these children and try to relate these dermatoses to the immunologic deterioration. A study was conducted where children carriers of the HIV virus from the Fundação Alfredo da Matta and Fundação de Medicina Tropical were studied from March 2007 to July 2008. These children were submitted to dermatological and laboratorial exams such as viral load dosage and CD4+ and CD8+ counts. During the study period, 70 HIV + children were examined; all of them had AIDS and had been contaminated by vertical transmission. The average number of dermatoses by children was 1.73, and 95.5% had at least one dermatosis during the study period. The most frequent manifestations were atopic dermatitis (22.9%), childhood prurigo (20%) and warts (18,6%). Children with HIV/AIDS have more skin disorders than children without HIV/AIDS. There was no statistical difference between the children in the group using ARVT and the group that wasn't using it.

    In 1986, the population of Paraguay stood at 4 million, with an annual growth rate of 2.7%. The infant mortality rate was 64/1000 live births and life expectancy was 62 years. The literacy rate was 81%. Of the labor force of 1.2 million, 44% were employed in the agricultural sector, 34% were in industry and commerce, 18% were in the services sector, and 4% were employed by the government. The gross national product (GNP) was US $3.31 billion in 1985, with an annual growth rate of 5% and a per capita GNP of $660. The inflation rate was 25.2% in 1985. Paraguay is a constitutional republic with a powerful executive branch. Since assuming power in 1954, President Alfredo Stroessner has been concerned with the re-establishment of internal order as a basis for economic development. The Colorado Party, the military, and the government bureaucracy are the pillars of the Stroessner regime. Although this regime has brought stability and economic growth, this has been achieved at considerable cost to political rights and individual liberties. Obstacles to development have included fluctuating prices for major export items, the long and expensive river or land routes that foreign trade must traverse, a small domestic market, and internal and external trade barriers. Despite these limitations, agricultural production has grown rapidly, especially cotton and soybeans for export. Paraguay has exceptional hydroelectric potential and is expected to become the world's largest exporter of hydroelectric energy within the next decade. The country's stable government, conservative fiscal policies, and laissezfaire approach to trade and investment have brought economic improvement to a broad segment of society. In addition, the government has attempted to ameliorate rural poverty with a land program.

    2009-05-01

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho tem por objetivo tentar compreender a produção da imagem visual no teatro. Para isso se vale da apropriação livre do conceito de “dobra? de Gilles Deleuze para se referir à multiplicidade de imagens criadas pelas diversas modalidades artísticas. Como no teatro há o entrelaçamento de imagens verbais – palavras enunciadas pelo texto dramático ou teatral – com imagens visuais – a visualidade advinda da composição cênica concreta que organiza no espaço ator e objeto –, a ênfase só podia recair sobre estas duas formas imagéticas. No caso do teatro, surge ainda a percepção de que para além da materialidade da cena, outras imagens emergem do confronto entre palco e platéia. Nesse sentido, imagem teatral seria então aquilo que surge da interação entre ator e espectador. A contribuição desse trabalho pode estar no fato de atualizar certos conceitos sobre a criação da imagem poética na poesia e no cinema para aplicá-los ao teatro. Ao recuperar o pensa-mento de Otávio Paz, Alfredo Bosi, Sergei Eisenstein, entre outros, bus-ca-se promover uma reflexão mais aprofundada sobre a construção visual no teatro.

    Full Text Available El arte de andar en la naturaleza gira alrededor de la cuestión ética y política de, ¿cómo los hombres nos relacionamos con la naturaleza cuando recorremos caminos? La respuesta se nutre de la filosofía ecofeminista espiritual de Vandana Shiva, la cual considera, junto con comunidades indígenas, a la tierra como un ser vivo, con el cual el hombre tiene una conexión espiritual y no es solamente garante de su existencia mediante la explotación ilimitada. Se amplía la reflexión en torno a los modos de relacionarse el hombre con la comunidad de los seres vivos mediante la propuesta de la ética de la tierra elaborada por Carlos Alfredo Vargas. Como práctica artística y proyecto de investigación, el arte de andar es una experiencia vivencial cotidiana consciente en el caminar diferentes recorridos, durante la cual se establecen relaciones de diversos órdenes, explorando los procesos creativos a partir de sensaciones corporales gracias a la apertura del caminante a las fuerzas intempestivas que atraviesan y modifican su cuerpo, tomado como referencia el “cuerpo sin órganos”, categoría desarrollada por Gilles Deleuze y Félix Guattari. El andar diferentes territorios permite la resignificación simbólica de los lugares, no necesitando expresarse en materialidades; por el contrario, esta práctica es tan respetuosa que solamente deja huellas móviles y evanescentes.

This paper describes the different types of evidence-based music interventions that can be found in literature and proposes a structured intervention model (global music approach to persons with dementia, GMA-D. The literature concerning music and dementia was considered and analyzed. The reported studies included more recent studies and/or studies with relevant scientific characteristics. From this background, a global music approach was proposed using music and sound–music elements according to the needs, clinical characteristics, and therapeutic–rehabilitation goals that emerge in the care of persons with dementia. From the literature analysis the following evidence-based interventions emerged: active music therapy (psychological and rehabilitative approaches, active music therapy with family caregivers and persons with dementia, music-based interventions, caregivers singing, individualized listening to music, and background music. Characteristics of each type of intervention are described and discussed. Standardizing the operational methods and evaluation of the single activities and a joint practice can contribute to achieve the validation of the application model. The proposed model can be considered a low-cost nonpharmacological intervention and a therapeutic–rehabilitation method for the reduction of behavioral disturbances, for stimulation of cognitive functions, and for increasing the overall quality of life

The prevalence of obesity, physical inactivity, Western processed diet, important risk factors for the development of T2DM, are also rising. Free fatty acids are increased in obesity and reduce insulin clearance and increase hepatic glucose production. Implementation of a healthy lifestyle has been show to slow the progression of impaired glucose tolerance to T2DM. Orlistat is an inhibitor of lipase activity, with proved efficacy in body weight reduction and long-term management of obesity and more favorable effects on carbohydrate metabolism and it was prospectively shown in XENDOS study that orlistat promoted long-term weight loss and prevented T2DM onset in obese individuals with normal and impaired glucose tolerance at baseline over four years. This benefit could be associated to the weight loss itself, to the limited absorption of lipids and reduction of plasma free fatty acids, to increased production of incretins or to modulation of secretion of cytokines by adipocytes, all effects secondary to orlistat treatment. A proposed strategy is to identify subjects at highest risk to receive a drug intervention, using lifestyle interventions alone at the community level.Keywords: type 2 diabetes mellitus, prevention, diabesity, obesity, metabolic syndrome, orlistat

This work discusses the idea that such subjects constitute, or should constitute, some form of fundamental to physical education as an educational subject. It suggests a horizontal debate among specialists and discourses that articulate theories and practices which are better placed, more local, less global and less abstract than what one tends to presume when theory and practice are discussed as totalizing categories. Without forgetting local concrete tasks that exist in the syllabus, this research work emphasizes that physical education at school has the importance of a finished project, being part of the set of contents that a school selects to be taught. It poses the issue of topic selection and its distribution as a main problem in the construction of a syllabus: discussing which contents (knowledge, skills, and attitudes need to be guaranteed before defining the competences that currently attract the attention of technocrats; establishing limits and landmarks for a subject to work under its own identity or the “organizing” divisions such technocrats are so fond of.

    Full Text Available The paper presents a research under development at the University of Trieste to analyze a painted architecture by Paolo Veronese and to present the results using AR systems (Augmented Reality Systems. The canvas was painted in 1573 and it is now at the Gallerie dell’Accademia Museum in Venice. The aim of the research was to transform a two-dimensional work of art in a three dimensional one, allowing all the visitors of a museum to enter the space of the representation and perceive it in a more direct way. After the geometrical analysis of the picture, we started the digital restitution of the perspective references and proceed to model the virtual scene using Boolean primitives and applying all the textures to render the scene in a very realistic way. The further step was to convert the model into a dynamic form with AR algorithms and associate it with spatial references to allow users to do a virtual experience of it.

    Low albumin levels and low lymphocyte counts are intra hospital conditions that exert a negative influence on prognosis, healing and length of hospitalization. The study aimed to analyze the correlation between low blood levels of albumin, low lymphocytes, and length of stay. The secondary aim was to identify other co-morbidities associated with prolonged hospital stay. Retrospective pilot study was conducted by analyzing anamnestic and biochemical data, related to 4038 patients admitted to ten wards of Hospital San Paolo (Milan), collected from July 1 st 2012 to December 31 st 2012. A statistical analysis was carried out using the Correlation method, Multivariate Analysis and Regression. Lymphocyte count and co-morbidities were evaluated in the whole cohort, albumin levels in 1437 patients. In the whole sample, low albumin levels and low lymphocyte counts were directly correlated to longer hospitalizations. The stratification of the results by department and diagnosis suggests that there is a higher correlation in certain subpopulations, and albumin shows a greater correlation with length of stay than lymphocytes. Also advanced age, high platelets, type of diagnosis, male gender and emergency admission led to longer hospitalizations. A routine check of albumin, lymphocytes and a spectrum of significant variables can provide precious information which can eventually lead to a shorter hospital stay. Knowledge of the general health status of a patient and the possibility to estimate his/her length of hospital stay are essential information for Clinical Governance, and for the improvement of internal services of hospitals on a large scale.

The burden of NMS tends to increase with age and disease severity and, in the very advanced stage of disease, NMS such as urinary problems, drooling, somnolence, psychosis, and dementia dominate the clinical phenotype. Moreover, the dopaminergic treatment used for the motor symptoms of PD can arise or worsen a number of NMS, including orthostatic hypotension, nausea, sleep disturbances, hallucinations, or impulsive compulsive behaviors. Here we review the most common NMS of PD with a focus on their pharmacological management. Keywords: disease management, PD, NMS

All panelists and the audience were asked to address the following questions • Why is the second law true? Is it an inviolable law of nature? If not, is it possible to develop a perpetual motion machine of the second kind? • Are second law limitations objective or subjective, real or apparent, due to the nature of physical states or the representation and manipulation of information? Is entropy a physical property in the same sense as energy is universally understood to be an intrinsic property of matter? • Does the second law conflict with quantum mechanics? Are the differences between mechanical and thermodynamic descriptions of physical phenomena reconcilable? Does the reversible law of motion of hamiltonian mechanics and quantum mechanics conflict with the empirical observation of irreversible phenomena?

  4. Optimising the weighting of the water retention index using sensitivity analysis

    Becker, William; Vandecasteele, Ine

    2015-04-01

    A robust composite indicator was developed to assess the capacity of the landscape to regulate and retain water passing through it at Pan-European scale. The "Water Retention Index" (WRI) takes into account the role of interception by vegetation, the water-holding capacity of the soil, and the relative capacity of the bedrock to allow percolation of water, as well as the influence of soil sealing and slope gradient. A delicate issue in composite indicators is however the relative weighting of each variable used in the indicator - strong correlations and skewness are known to cause unequal influence of the input variables, even though the weighting coefficients are equal (Paruolo et al, 2013). To understand the effects of the weightings in the WRI, penalised splines were used to calculate the first order sensitivity index of each variable used in the construction of the WRI, allowing the true influence of each input to be determined. Furthermore, the weighting coefficients were optimised using an iterative nonlinear algorithm to find the coefficients which resulted in the most equal influence of each input to the indicator. In principle, this approach can be used to improve the weighting of many different kinds of composite indicator, the results of which are often used as the basis for important policy decisions at the European level.

    Full Text Available Paolo Leombruni, Luca Lavagnino, Secondo FassinoDepartment of Neurosciences, Psychiatry Section, University of Torino, Centre for Eating Disorders and Obesity, Torino, ItalyAbstract: Topiramate is an anticonvulsant drug used for the treatment of epilepsy and prophylaxis of migraine. Some authors have proposed its use as a mood stabilizer and have reported its efficacy in reducing impulsiveness and improving mood regulation, possibly via its antagonism to glutamatergic transmission in the lateral hypothalamus, although this indication is still controversial. Weight loss is a side effect consistently reported in the medical literature in patients treated with topiramate. Given its potential role in stabilizing mood and reducing impulse control problems and weight, topiramate has been proposed as a treatment for obese patients with binge eating disorder (BED. The aim of this paper is to review published data on the efficacy and safety of topiramate for the treatment of obese subjects with BED. Although the evidence is preliminary, topiramate appears to be a relatively safe and effective treatment for obese subjects with BED. Limitations of the studies and future directions for research are discussed.Keywords: topiramate, binge eating disorder, obesity

    Wahrig, Bettina

    2009-12-01

    This contribution focuses on the history of Coca leaves and Cocaine in the second half of 19th century Europe. Even though, to date, no direct link has been established between the activities of the Milano physician Paolo Mantegazza, and the Göttingen chemist Friedrich Wöhler, it is not a mere coincidence that both published their findings in the same year, namely, 1859. Mantegazza authored the first treatise claiming that Coca had psychoactive qualities and touted its broad therapeutic faculties; he claimed that it should be introduced into European pharmacotherapy. In Wöhler's laboratory, cocaine was isolated from leaves by his pupil Alfred Niemann; later, Wilhelm Lossen refined and corrected Niemann's results. Narratives about medicinal drugs often streamline history into a story that starts with multiple meanings and impure matters and ends with well-defined substances, directed at clear-cut diseases and symptoms. In the case of Coca, however, the pure substance triggered no such process well into the 1880s, whereas the leaves continued to circulate as an exotic, pluripotent drug whose effects where miraculous and yet difficult to establish.

Several scholars tried to give an answer to this question, while motor learning researchers were in favour of this kind of scientific knowledge (Singer, 1990, Magill, 1990 pedagogues were more sceptical (Locke, 1990; Hoffman, 1990. Is it still a question that needs an answer? Does motor learning and expertise research useful for coaches and teachers? To quote J. von Uexkül “perhaps it would be a good idea to give a short stroll into the world of this (unfamiliar world”. Recently the philosophy of mind and philosophy of sport has begun to focus on sport expertise (Breivik, 2007; Moe, 2005. Today we are witnessing a change of the explanatory model of motor skill acquisition. Computational and computer metaphor is rejected and dynamic, sensorimotor, extended and enactive positions are the fashionable approaches (Araujo, 2013; Aviles et al., 2014; Clark and Chalmers, 2011; Davids, 2015; Froese and Di Paolo, 2011; Noë, 2010. In some cases these positions are coincidences but not in others. All of the researchers are agree upon the need to consider the mutuality of human beings and their surroundings. The computer metaphor, which at the time was the paradigm of any explanation, is now beginning to be seen as an overcome idea(Moe, 2005; Varela, Thompson and Rosch, 2005.

  8. Prediction of site-specific interactions in antibody-antigen complexes: the proABC method and server.

    2013-06-26

    MOTIVATION: Antibodies or immunoglobulins are proteins of paramount importance in the immune system. They are extremely relevant as diagnostic, biotechnological and therapeutic tools. Their modular structure makes it easy to re-engineer them for specific purposes. Short of undergoing a trial and error process, these experiments, as well as others, need to rely on an understanding of the specific determinants of the antibody binding mode. RESULTS: In this article, we present a method to identify, on the basis of the antibody sequence alone, which residues of an antibody directly interact with its cognate antigen. The method, based on the random forest automatic learning techniques, reaches a recall and specificity as high as 80% and is implemented as a free and easy-to-use server, named prediction of Antibody Contacts. We believe that it can be of great help in re-design experiments as well as a guide for molecular docking experiments. The results that we obtained also allowed us to dissect which features of the antibody sequence contribute most to the involvement of specific residues in binding to the antigen.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Paolo PrandoniDepartment of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Sciences, Thromboembolism Unit, University Hospital of Padua Padua, ItalyAbstract: An increasing body of evidence suggests the likelihood of a link between venous and arterial thrombosis. The two vascular complications share several risk factors, such as age, obesity, diabetes mellitus, blood hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, and metabolic syndrome. Moreover, there are many examples of conditions accounting for both venous and arterial thrombosis, such as the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, hyperhomocysteinemia, malignancies, infections, and the use of hormonal treatment. Finally, several recent studies have consistently shown that patients with venous thromboembolism are at a higher risk of arterial thrombotic complications than matched control individuals. We, therefore, speculate the two vascular complications are simultaneously triggered by biological stimuli responsible for activating coagulation and inflammatory pathways in both the arterial and the venous system. Future studies are needed to clarify the nature of this association, to assess its extent, and to evaluate its implications for clinical practice.Keywords: venous thromboembolism, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, atherosclerosis

  11. Narrativity and enaction: the social nature of literary narrative understanding.

    Popova, Yanna B

    2014-01-01

    This paper proposes an understanding of literary narrative as a form of social cognition and situates the study of such narratives in relation to the new comprehensive approach to human cognition, enaction. The particular form of enactive cognition that narrative understanding is proposed to depend on is that of participatory sense-making, as developed in the work of Di Paolo and De Jaegher. Currently there is no consensus as to what makes a good literary narrative, how it is understood, and why it plays such an irreplaceable role in human experience. The proposal thus identifies a gap in the existing research on narrative by describing narrative as a form of intersubjective process of sense-making between two agents, a teller and a reader. It argues that making sense of narrative literature is an interactional process of co-constructing a story-world with a narrator. Such an understanding of narrative makes a decisive break with both text-centered approaches that have dominated both structuralist and early cognitivist study of narrative, as well as pragmatic communicative ones that view narrative as a form of linguistic implicature. The interactive experience that narrative affords and necessitates at the same time, I argue, serves to highlight the active yet cooperative and communal nature of human sociality, expressed in the many forms than human beings interact in, including literary ones.

    Full Text Available Umiliazione e amore: Villaggio, Benigni e la politica culturale delle emozioniLa forte dicotomia emotiva fra eroismo e codardia ha svolto un ruolo importante nella costruzione ed evoluzione dell’identità nazionale italiana. Questo articolo considera le opere più influenti di Paolo Villaggio e Roberto Benigni, e il loro ruolo nello sviluppo di una alternativa emotiva a tale dicotomia. I loro film si concentrano principalmente su una singola emozione: l’umiliazione nel caso di Villaggio, e l’amore nel caso di Benigni. È attraverso questa attenzione ad una singola emozione che questi autori e interpreti sono riusciti a costruire dei personaggi che, pur tipicamente italiani, non possono essere facilmente ricondotti né alla categoria dell’eroe né a quella del codardo. L’articolo sostiene l’importanza politica di questa alternativa emotiva, e nota come il suo progressivo indebolimento sia coinciso con l’incapacità della sinistra italiana di elaborare una risposta efficace alle politiche fortemente emotive di Berlusconi. L’articolo dimostra l’importanza di studiare i complessi rapporti fra comicità, emozioni e politica nella storia culturale e politica italiana.

    Full Text Available Carlo Marchesi, Chiara De Panfilis, Matteo Tonna, Paolo Ossola University of Parma, Department of Neuroscience, Psychiatric Unit, Parma, Italy Background: For many years, placebo has been defined by its inert content and use in clinical trials. In recent years, several studies have demonstrated its effect in the treatment of major depression. The aim of this paper is to present the conclusions of recent meta-analyses of the placebo effect in major depression, to explain the mechanism by which placebo exerts its effect, and to discuss whether placebo can be used in the treatment of patients with major depression in clinical practice. Recent meta-analyses have demonstrated that the placebo effect is estimated to account for 67% of the treatment effect in patients receiving antidepressants, and furthermore that placebo is as effective as antidepressants in patients with mild to moderate major depression (reporting a Hamilton Depression Rating Scale score lower than 25, whereas placebo is less effective than antidepressants in severely depressed patients. However, several limitations make the translation of these conclusions into clinical practice impracticable. Clinicians should learn from the "placebo lesson" to maximize the nonspecific effects of treatment when they prescribe an antidepressant, particularly in less severely depressed patients, who show a higher placebo response in randomized controlled trials. This strategy can increase the antidepressant effect and may reduce nonadherence with treatment.

    Faced with mounting public and regulatory pressures, many chemical producers have long adopted pollution reduction efforts. But increasingly, firms are eyeing fundamental process changes to achieve cleaner technologies. In addition to environmental benefits, the promised economic payoffs are clear: higher yields and an escape from soaring waste treatment and disposal costs. Having such technologies, says Paolo Galli, Montecatini's (Milan) director/corporate research, is a tremendous tool. It's becoming an increasingly important competitive element. Indeed, suggests David Hyde, ICI's (London) manager/environmental technology, everyone is looking to use cleaner technologies for a competitive advantage. A number of leading technology groups, including UOP (Des Plaines, IL), are working on replacing hydrofluoric acid (HF) with solid catalysts in alkylation processes. Although it is technologically tough to replace HF or alternative sulfuric acid technology, the rewards could be huge in producing high-octane fuel additives. Catalytica (Mountain View, CA), for one, is building a pilot plant with partners Neste (Helsinki) and Du Pont's Conoco. The company has developed a process to manufacture high-purity DMC by direct synthesis from carbom monoxide, methanol, and oxygen. The medium-pressure process uses a copper salts catalyst system; EniChem says the only significant by-product is carbon dioxide, and there are no chlorinated impurities

    Over the last 30 years, significant advancements have led to the use of multifunctional materials and structures technologies in spacecraft systems. This includes the integration of adaptive structures, advanced composites, nanotechnology, and additive manufacturing technologies. Development of multifunctional structures has been directly influenced by the implementation of processes and tools for adaptive structures pioneered by Prof. Paolo Santini. Multifunctional materials and structures incorporating non-structural engineering functions such as thermal, electrical, radiation shielding, power, and sensors have been investigated. The result has been an integrated structure that offers reduced mass, packaging volume, and ease of integration for spacecraft systems. Current technology development efforts are being conducted to develop innovative multifunctional materials and structures designs incorporating advanced composites, nanotechnology, and additive manufacturing. However, these efforts offer significant challenges in the qualification and acceptance into spacecraft systems. This paper presents a brief overview of the technology development and successful insertion of advanced material technologies into spacecraft structures. Finally, opportunities and challenges to develop and mature next generation advanced materials and structures are presented.

  18. ALICE’s wonderland reveals the heaviest antimatter ever observed

    2011-01-01

    Producing and observing antiparticles is part of everyday life for many physics laboratories around the world, including CERN. However, recreating and observing the anti-nuclei of complex atoms is a much more difficult task. Analysing data collected in a run of just one month, ALICE has recently found evidence of the formation of four anti-nuclei of Helium 4, the heaviest antimatter ever created in a laboratory.   The STAR experiment at RHIC came first and published the result in March: they presented evidence of 18 anti-nuclei of Helium 4 collected over several years of data taking. “ALICE came second but it's amazing to see how fast the results came,” exclaims Paolo Giubellino, the experiment’s spokesperson. “We were able to confirm the observation of 4He anti-nuclei with data collected in November 2010.” Scientists agree on the fact that antimatter was created in the Big Bang together with matter. However, today we do not observe antimatter outsid...

  1. Reconsidering Written Language

    Full Text Available A number of elite thinkers in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries pursued an agenda which historian Paolo Rossi calls the “quest for a universal language,” a quest which was deeply interwoven with the emergence of the scientific method. From a modern perspective, one of the many surprising aspects of these efforts is that they relied on a diverse array of memorization techniques as foundational elements. In the case of Leibniz’s universal calculus, the ultimate vision was to create a pictorial language that could be learned by anyone in a matter of weeks and which would contain within it a symbolic representation of all domains of contemporary thought, ranging from the natural sciences, to theology, to law. In this brief article, I explore why this agenda might have been appealing to thinkers of this era by examining ancient and modern memory feats. As a thought experiment, I suggest that a society built entirely upon memorization might be less limited than we might otherwise imagine, and furthermore, that cultural norms discouraging the use of written language might have had implications for the development of scientific methodology. Viewed in this light, the efforts of Leibniz and others seem significantly less surprising. I close with some general observations about cross-cultural origins of scientific thought.

    A major barrier to the practical utilization of large, complex models of biochemical systems is the lack of open-source computational tools to evaluate model behaviors over high-dimensional parameter spaces. This is due to the high computational expense of performing thousands to millions of model simulations required for statistical analysis. To address this need, we have implemented a user-friendly interface between cupSODA, a GPU-powered kinetic simulator, and PySB, a Python-based modeling and simulation framework. For three example models of varying size, we show that for large numbers of simulations PySB/cupSODA achieves order-of-magnitude speedups relative to a CPU-based ordinary differential equation integrator. The PySB/cupSODA interface has been integrated into the PySB modeling framework (version 1.4.0), which can be installed from the Python Package Index (PyPI) using a Python package manager such as pip. cupSODA source code and precompiled binaries (Linux, Mac OS/X, Windows) are available at github.com/aresio/cupSODA (requires an Nvidia GPU; developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus). Additional information about PySB is available at pysb.org. paolo.cazzaniga@unibg.it or c.lopez@vanderbilt.edu. Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online. © The Author(s) 2017.

  4. Narrativity and Enaction: The Social Nature of Literary Narrative Understanding

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yanna B. Popova

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes an understanding of literary narrative as a form of social cognition and situates the study of such narratives in relation to the new comprehensive approach to human cognition, enaction. The particular form of enactive cognition that narrative understanding is proposed to depend on is that of participatory sense-making, as developed in the work of Di Paolo and De Jaegher. Currently there is no consensus as to what makes a good literary narrative, how it is understood, and why it plays such an irreplaceable role in human experience. The proposal thus identifies a gap in the existing research on narrative by describing narrative as a form of intersubjective process of sense-making between two agents, a teller and a reader. It argues that making sense of narrative literature is an interactional process of co-constructing a story-world with a narrator. Such an understanding of narrative makes a decisive break with both text-centered approaches that have dominated both structuralist and early cognitivist study of narrative, as well as pragmatic communicative ones that view narrative as a form of linguistic implicature. The interactive experience that narrative affords and necessitates at the same time, I argue, serves to highlight the active yet cooperative and communal nature of human sociality, expressed in the many forms than human beings interact in, including literary ones.

  6. A unified approach to model uptake kinetics of trace elements in complex aqueous – solid solution systems

    2014-01-01

    Highlights: • There are several models able to describe trace element partitioning in growing minerals. • To describe complex systems, those models must be embedded in a geochemical code. • We merged two models into a unified one suitable for implementation in a geochemical code. • This unified model was tested against coprecipitation experimental data. • We explored how our model reacts to solution depletion effects. - Abstract: Thermodynamics alone is usually not sufficient to predict growth-rate dependencies of trace element partitioning into host mineral solid solutions. In this contribution, two uptake kinetic models were analyzed that are promising in terms of mechanistic understanding and potential for implementation in geochemical modelling codes. The growth Surface Entrapment Model (Watson, 2004) and the Surface Reaction Kinetic Model (DePaolo, 2011) were shown to be complementary, and under certain assumptions merged into a single analytical expression. This Unified Uptake Kinetics Model was implemented in GEMS3K and GEM-Selektor codes ( (http://gems.web.psi.ch)), a Gibbs energy minimization package for geochemical modelling. This implementation extends the applicability of the unified uptake kinetics model to accounting for non-trivial factors influencing the trace element partitioning into solid solutions, such as the changes in aqueous solution composition and speciation, or the depletion effects in closed geochemical systems

  11. Giuseppe Sergi. The portrait of a positivist scientist.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cerro, Giovanni

    2017-12-30

    Giuseppe Sergi (1841-1936) was one of the most important anthropologists and psychologists of the age of positivism and this article focuses on three domains of his scientific research: degeneration, eugenics and race. His concept of degeneration is defined as the development of special forms of human adaptation to the environment. This issue is closely related to his theory of the "stratification of character", which had a profound impact on Italian psychiatry and criminal anthropology in the late nineteenth century. Thus, special emphasis is placed on the differences between Sergi and Cesare Lombroso regarding their definitions of criminality and genius. Concerning eugenics, the article analyzes Sergi's key role in the Italian context, discussing his eugenic program based on both repression and education. His remedies against the spread of degeneration included not only radical and repressive measures, but also the improvement of popular education and the living conditions of the working class. In the field of physical anthropology, the article examines Sergi's morphological method of classifying ethnic groups. Although sharply criticized in Italy and abroad, this method had two major effects. First, it led to the definitive split between Sergi and Paolo Mantegazza and to the foundation of the Societá Romana di Antropologia in 1893. Second, it was the starting point for Sergi's theory of Mediterranean "stock", which claimed that European populations were of African origin in contrast to contemporary theories of Aryan supremacy. The article ends with a look at the heated debate over Sergi's Mediterraneanism during the period of Fascism.

    Handover, in particular between two shifts, is a crucial aspect of nursing for patient safety, aimed at ensuring continuity of care. During this process, several factors can affect quality of care and cause errors. This study aimed to assess quality of handovers, by validating the Handoff CEX-Italian scale. The scale was translated from English into Italian and the content validity index was calculated and internal consistency assessed. The scale was used in several units of the San Paolo Teaching Hospital in Milan, Italy. A total of 48 reports were assessed (192 evaluations). The median score was 6, interquartile range (IQR) [5;7] and was not influenced by specific (p=0.21) or overall working experience (p=0.13). The domains showing the lowest median values (median=6, IQR [4;8]) were context, communication, and organisation. Night to morning handovers obtained the lowest scores. CVI-S was 0.96, Cronbach's alpha was 0.79. The Handoff CEX-Italian scale is valid and reliable and it can be used to assess the quality of nurse handovers.

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available The present article proposes to problematize, from an interdisciplinary dialog that focuses on the fields of Anthropology, History and Sociology, the object and the methods of contemporary Jurisprudence, looking for the redeeming of the value of thoughts from authors such as Eugen Ehrlich and Julius Hermann Von Kirchmann. The article makes some critical reflections on the reductionist conception of law based on positivism, in legalism and statism, advocating a broad concept of law, recognized as a rich human and social phenomenon. On the basis of the thought of Paolo Grossi, it proposes a ransom of ordinamental vision of law, in place of merely compulsory existing conception. The study presents a criticism to the purely technological approach of law, for the sake of a methodological reset that boosts the juridical science, and argues that the withdrawal of myths, as the legal monism, may contribute to the future Jurisprudence not to succumb in front of the strict positivism, the officialism and the strict technicality.

    Full Text Available In this text we tried to point out the relationship between labour and biopolitical mechanisms of power in the context of the current situation in elite sport. In the first part we present developments inside left-oriented theories of sport, especially the need for critical research based on specific aspects of criticism of political economy. We then review brief the current situation in contemporary sport, mainly about parallel evolution of the capitalist commodification of sport and the emergence of the application of biopolitically directed practices, where we have tried to implement a short overview of Foucault’s concepts in the field of sport studies. The third part deals with the connection between Paolo Virno’s biopolitical studies and Marx’s labour power. In conclusion, we raise the possibility of applying Virno’s settings to treat sport practice in the context of its appropriation by capitalism, characterised by the intensification of strategies and techniques for controlling sportsman life. According to Virno’s settings we have tried to show influence to a life of sportsman in the aim of bio-potency, the ability/power to produce a labour force, while this force is treated like labour exchanged in the market in the context of capitalist commodification of modern sport.

    Radiogenic ingrowth of Ca-40 due to decay of K-40 occurred early in the solar system history causing the Ca-40 abundance to vary within different early-former reservoirs. Marshall and DePaolo ] demonstrated that the K-40/Ca-40 decay system could be a useful radiogenic tracer for studies of terrestrial rocks. Shih et al. [3,4] determined 40K/40Ca ages of lunar granitic rock fragments and discussed the chemical characteristics of their source materials. Recently, Yokoyama et al. [5] showed the application of the K-40/Ca-40 chronometer for high K/Ca materials in ordinary chondrites (OCs). High-precision calcium isotopic data are needed to constrain mixing processes among early solar system materials and the time of planetesimal formation. To better constrain the solar system calcium isotopic compositions among astromaterials, we have determined the calcium isotopic compositions of OCs and an angrite. We further estimated a source K/Ca ratio for alkali-rich fragments in a chondritic breccia using the estimated solar system initial Ca-40/Ca-44.

  19. The sources of 14th century Italian texts of Abacus: the echoes of an ongoing debate

    Full Text Available The most common opinion among historians of mathematics is that Fibonacci’s Liber Abaci – or at least the first eleven chapters – was the precursor of the Italian textual tradition of the Abacus and, with respect to the origin of Abacus algebra in Italian, the Libro di ragioni from Paolo Gerardi (1328 was the oldest text on algebra so far known. These ideas have been challenged by many works of J. Høyrup. He maintains that Fibonacci was not a precursor, but only an important exponent of pre-existing Abacus tradition and that the first algebra text in Italian was the Tractatus Algorismi by Jacopo da Firenze. In particular, he articulated all his positions in his book, Jacopo da Firenze’s Tractatus Algorismi Abbacus and Early Italian Culture, which has been the subject of a debate. The author of this article tries to summarize the central theses of Høyrup and explain the different positions taken by the participants in the debate. She will also explain her position in a few cases and her final point of view.

    The prototype of the first module of the LInac BOster (LIBO) has been constructed and tested at CERN. This new medical accelerator offers new perspectives in deep-seated tumour treatment.   Accelerator technology developed at CERN is set to bring about important advances in cancer therapy. The linac booster - LIBO - project aims to build a 3GHz proton linear accelerator to boost to 200 MeV the energy of the beam from 50-70 MeV cyclotrons, existing in several hospitals and laboratories. This will allow deep-seated tumours to be treated (see box). The prototype of the first LIBO module has just passed high power RF tests at CERN.

    Ca isotopes are used to study the accretion history of the Earth and terrestrial planets, but, Ca isotopic composition of the Bulk Silicate Earth (BSE) remains poorly constrained [1]. To better understand the Ca isotopic composition of BSE, we analyzed 22 well studied peridotite xenoliths from Tariat (Mongolia), Vitim (southern Siberia) and Udachnaya (Siberian Craton). These samples include both fertile and highly depleted garnet and spinel peridotites that show no or only minor post-melting metasomatism or alteration. Ca isotope measurements were done on a Triton-TIMS using double spike method at the Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, CAS. The data are reported as δ44/40Ca (relative to NIST SRM 915a). Results for geostandards are consistent with those from other laboratories. 2 standard deviations of SRM 915a analyses are 0.13‰ (n=48). δ44/40Ca of both and fertile and refractory peridotites range from 0.79 to 1.07‰ producing an average of 0.93±0.12‰ (2SD). This value defines the Ca isotopic composition of the BSE, which is consistent with the average δ44/40Ca of oceanic basalts ( 0.90‰)[2,3].

    . Giuseppe and his younger brother, Paolo Groppelli, led the family workshop from 1708, producing and signing sculptures together. Therefore, the newly discovered statues produced by Giuseppe are a significant contribution to his personal 174 Damir Tulić: Nepoznati anđeli Giuseppea Groppellija u Zadru... Ars Adriatica 6/2016. (155-174 oeuvre. It is difficult to distinguish between his statues and those by his brother, but it is generally believed that Paolo was a better artist. It is therefore important to compare the two sculptures, as they are believed to have been made independently. Paolo’s statue of Our Lady of the Rosary (1708 was originally located in the former Benedictine church of Santa Croce at Giudecca in Venice, and acquired early in the 19th century for the parish church of Veli Lošinj. If one compares the phisiognomy of the Christ Child by Paolo to that of Giuseppe’s signed sculpture of angel-putto in Zadar, one can observe considerable similarities (Figs. 5 and 6. However, Paolo’s sculptures are somewhat subtler and softer than Giuseppe’s. The workshop of Giuseppe and Paolo Gropelli has also been credited with two large marble angels on the main altar of the parish church in Concadirame near Treviso, as they show great similarity in style to the angels in Ljubljana’s cathedral, made around 1710 (Figs. 7, 8, 9, and 10. The oeuvre of Giuseppe and Paolo Gropelli can also be extended to two kneeling marble angels at the altar of the Holy Sacrament in the Venetian church of Santa Maria Formosa, with their marble surface somewhat damaged (Figs. 11 and 12. Coming back to the former main altar in Zadar’s church of St Donatus, it should be emphasized that it was erected following the last will of Archbishop Vettore Priuli (1688-1712, that contains a clearly expressed desire that the altar should be decorated as lavishly as possible. As the construction contract has been lost and the appearance of the altar remains unknown, it can only be supposed what

    El padre de la música moderna, Juan Sebastián Bach, inauguró el milenio con explosiones armoniosas en todo el planeta, al conmemorarse 250 años de la finalización de su ciclo vital.

    Por esta razón, el académico Roso Alfredo Cala Hederich nos obsequió con una agradable velada de antología, en la cual combinó la audición de trozos musicales que en su sentir representan lo mejor de la música del genio alemán (en ocasiones sirviendo de “melopea” o música de fondo para su presentación oral, con extraordinarios videos de paisajes y edificios por donde transcurrió la vida de uno de los tres más grandes compositores mundiales, junto con Beethoven y Mozart posteriormente.

Se empleó maíz criollo forrajero y maíz híbrido. Ambos cultivares se cosecharon a los 107 días. Se empleó un diseño irrestrictamente al azar, con tratamientos en arreglo factorial 2x2. El primer factor, 2 cultivares de maíz y el segundo 2 alturas de corte (15 y 45 cm sobre el nivel del suelo. Con el maíz criollo cosechado a 15 cm de altura se obtuvo rendimientos de 131,9 ton de forraje verde y 15,2 ton.ha-1 de biomasa seca, mientras que cuando se cosechó a 45 cm de altura los rendimientos fueron de 88,1 y 10,4 ton.ha-1, respectivamente. Con respecto al maíz híbrido, cuando se cosechó a 15 cm de altura los rendimientos fueron de 82,6 ton de forraje verde y 11,0 ton.ha-1 de biomasa seca, mientras que cuando se cosechó a 45 cm de altura los rendimientos fueron de 76,2 y 10,4 ton.ha-1, respectivamente. La relación hoja-tallo, tanto en forraje verde como en seco y sin importar la altura de corte, fue siempre mayor para el cultivar híbrido. No se encontraron diferencias significativas en la concentración de materia seca de la planta entera, que osciló entre 11,64 y 13,68% para ambos cultivares y ambas alturas de corte. El contenido de PC y FDN no mostró variación al considerar las hojas o tallos de los cultivares a las diferentes alturas, ni al considerar la planta entera. Estos resultados sugieren que incrementar la altura de corte, de 15 a 45 cm sobre el nivel del suelo, no incrementa significativamente la calidad nutricional del forraje de maíz para ensilaje.

Responding physicians were screened, and those treating at least 40 patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD per month and prescribing nutrition supplements at least 4 times per month were admitted and completed a 40-item questionnaire.Results: The surveyed sample included 112 general ophthalmologists and 104 retinal specialists. Most nutritional supplements (46% were initiated when early/intermediate AMD was confirmed, although 18% were initiated on confirmation of neovascular AMD. Clinical studies were well known: 90% were aware of AREDS, with 88% aware of AREDS1 and 36% aware of the, as-yet-unpublished, AREDS2 studies. Respondents considered lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc, omega-3, and vitamins to be the most important components of nutritional supplements, with the results of AREDS2 already having been taken into consideration by many. Ophthalmologists anticipate more scientific studies as well as improved product quality but identify cost as a barrier to wider uptake.Conclusion: Micronutrition is now part of the routine management of AMD for many ophthalmologists.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Carmen Brunelli de Moura

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available A ideia de programar ações de melhoria na qualidade do ensino levou o Estado a dividir com a mídia os espaços de formação de professores. Isso fez surgir uma discursividade cujos efeitos apontam para um currículo pedagógico que funciona em meio a um conjunto de verdades e equipa o professor com uma teoria voltada para a profissionalidade e conduta do outro. Diante de todo esse profissionalismo, é possível entrever uma teoria da pessoalidade? É possível descrever um currículo cujos efeitos apontam para a transformação das subjetividades do professor e não apenas para sua formação? A partir desses questionamentos, objetivo descrever como os discursos da mídia problematizam a subjetividade do professor, pensando-a a partir de um currículo psicagógico, cujas verdades não têm como finalidade formar, mas transformar o modo de ser do professor. Para problematizar esse currículo psicagógico, tomo o discurso produzido na edição de Dezembro/2001, da Revista Nova Escola. Conduzo este estudo a partir do campo da Linguística Aplicada com idéias que vêm das noções desenvolvidas por Michel Foucault, além de conceitos colhidos entre pesquisadores como Antonio Nóvoa, Stephen Ball, Alfredo Veiga-Neto, Tomas Tadeu da Silva, Zigmunt Bauman e outros. Os resultados desse estudo apontam que a mídia, ao pensar um currículo psicagógico, propicia ao professor espaços de liberdade diante das pressões sociais e históricas e a apreensão de subjetividades mais autônomas, singulares, mais abertas às mudanças que se apresentam continuamente na liquidez da modernidade.

    Full Text Available Introdução: A bibliografia partilha de uma esfera discursiva tensiva, ora intensamente textual, ora demasiadamente estatística. Por ora, em linhas gerais, põe-se a bibliografia em perspectiva como uma performance linguística que porta consigo milênios de tradição, reviravoltas, guinadas, estagnações, que todavia não lhe arranca o frescor. O inverso, a torna cada vez e sempre mais instigante, vide as falas de Gabriel Peignot “a bibliografia é o mais vasto e universal de todos os conhecimentos humano”, e de Alfredo Serrai “a bibliografia é a mãe de todas as disciplinas da representação escrita”.Objetivo: Esse ensaio busca apresentar a dinâmica tensiva da Bibliografia e suas alternâncias valorativas. A intenção central é tecer como questão de princípio da Bibliografia a dimensão linguístico-pragmática.Metodologia: O enfoque teórico-reconstrutivo é o abordado, a partir das possibilidades de abertura às instâncias passíveis de desenvolvimento e realização. Entendendo a bibliografia como Paul Otlet, enquanto meio, guiamo-nos pelos seus usos – cognitivos e comunicativos. Contudo, também nos indagamos acerca da modernidade da bibliografia e suas questões de permanente discussão: tem por fim “algo maior” como uma ciência geral dos livros/documentos, como em Otlet? Ou, será arte exegética dos hermeneutas e críticos? Ou ainda, alguma coisa totalmente outra? Ou talvez, nem tanto nem tão pouco, há um equilíbrio reflexivo possível de ser estabelecido?Resultados: Orientamo-nos “para” dimensão humanístico-universal implicada na bibliografia, acreditando ser esta um meio para o uso público da razão tão propagado, mas tão pouco realizado pela modernidade.Conclusões: Ao final, são postos argumentos acerca de uma devida recontextualização e de uma possível reconstrução de alguns pressupostos bibliográficos, visando seus respectivos potenciais emancipatórios, outrora inconclusos no projeto

Constituem corpus da pesquisa, os livros didáticos comprovadamente utilizados, a documentação escolar existente nos arquivos das escolas e as anotações dos cadernos de duas alunas da época. Os livros identificados e analisados foram: Noções de Higiene de Afrânio Peixoto, Editora Francisco Alves; Didactica (Nas escolas Primárias de João Toledo, Livraria Liberdade; Pedagogia Científica: Psicologia e direção da aprendizagem de Alfredo Miguel Aguayo y Sanches, Companhia Editora Nacional e Noções de Psicologia Aplicada à Educação, de Iago Pimentel, Editora Melhoramentos. A análise confirmou o papel dos livros didáticos como suporte das práticas pedagógicas, mas indicou também que, embora as anotações nos cadernos tenham sido baseadas nos livros adotados, estes não eram seguidos religiosamente pois há omissões, acréscimos e interferências que tanto podem ser atribuídos a outros livros utilizados quanto aos próprios professores das disciplinas. Parece claro, portanto, que a formação de habitus nas Escolas Normais da década de 1930 não era pautada integralmente pelos conteúdos e valores dos livros didáticos adotados.

El experimento se llevó a cabo en la Estación Experimental “Alfredo Volio Mata” de la Universidad de Costa Rica. Se empleó semilla de maíz criolla forrajera. Alos 37 días de edad se realizó el primer muestreo de plantas y los siguientes se efectuaron cada 14 días hasta los 149 días de edad. Se determinó el contenido de materia seca, la proteína cruda, las cenizas totales, la fibra neutro detergente (FND, la fibra ácido detergente (FAD y la lignina así como los valores de hemicelulosa y celulosa. Antes de los 65 días de crecimiento, la producción de hojas fue superior a la de tallo. Posterior a esta edad, la planta fue mayor productora de tallo. Las flores emergieron después de los 100 días y ellas tuvieron un alto contenido de materia seca, contribuyendo poco en el rendimiento global del cultivo. Alos 120 días, la producción de materia seca en las mazorcas fue ligeramente mayor a la acumulada por las hojas. El contenido de materia seca en el tallo, antes de los 120 días, y en la hoja antes de los 80 días fue bajo, para ser empleado como forraje en la alimentación del ganado. El contenido de proteína cruda comenzó a decrecer drásticamente a los 65 días en el tallo y a los 90 días en la hoja. Sólo en los primeros 50 días de crecimiento, la pared celular de los tallos fue menor a 50%. El contenido de cenizas fue mayor en el tallo que en la hoja en los primeros 90 días. Por las cualidades fenológicas observadas y la concentración de nutrientes en tallos y hojas, se recomienda la cosecha y el aprovechamiento del forraje de maíz entre 80 y 90 días de crecimiento. En edades posteriores, se puede obtener el beneficio de un mayor tonelaje por unidad de superficie, sacrificando la calidad nutricional

Difficult patient access in conventional horizontal-field superconductive magnets, very high investment and operational expenses, and the need for special nonferromagnetic therapy tools have however prevented the widespread use of MRI as imaging and guidance tool for therapy purposes. The interventional use of MRI systems follows for the last 20+ years the strategy to use standard diagnostic systems and add more or less complicated and expensive components (eg, MRI-compatible robotic systems, specially shielded in-room monitors, dedicated tools and devices made from low-susceptibility materials, etc to overcome the difficulties in the therapy process. We are proposing to rethink that approach using an in-room portable ultrasound (US system that can be safely operated till 1 m away from the opening of a 3T imaging system. The live US images can be tracked using an optical inside–out approach adding a camera to the US probe in combination with optical reference markers to allow direct fusion with the MRI images inside the MRI suite. This leads to a comfortable US-guided intervention and excellent patient

Methods: Sixty-nine biopsies were collected for immunohistochemical analysis for the presence of IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α, IFN-γ, TGF-β, and IL-10, in 16 fragments from atheromatous plaques, 32 aorta fragments, and 21 valve fragments, using a tissue microarray technique for paraffin embedded tissues. Results: Most patients undergoing revascularization surgery were men >50 years, while those undergoing valve replacement were mostly women <50 years. TNF-α was the most prevalent marker, detected in 91.7% (55/60 of the samples. The mean percent area stained was greater in patients infected with C. pneumoniae (3.81% vs 1.92%; p=0.0115 and specifically in the aorta (4.83% vs 2.25%; p=0.0025; C. trachomatis infection was higher in valves, and C. pneumoniae in plaques, both without statistical significance. There was no significant difference in the cytokine staining profile between patients previously infected with both species and uninfected patients. Conclusion: Although there was no difference in the cytokine profile between patients previously

Se titula 'Innovar contra la Corriente' porque la experiencia se ha producido en el medio adverso a la innovación que caracteriza a estos países. Nuestra cultura dificulta y entorpece la innovación. La del mundo desarrollado, en cambio, la favorece y la estimula a todos los niveles. Solo podremos desarrollarnos si emprendemos la tarea clave de construir una nueva cultura, que promueva y apoye la innovación en cada empresa, en cada política pública y en la sociedad entera. Es una tarea ardua, porque exige enfrentar las culturas actuales y las prácticas asociadas a ellas, que nos rigen y nos condicionan en todos los planos sin que seamos conscientes de aquello.

Being diagnosed with cancer at this time can have important consequences on an individual's emotional and physical development, and adolescent and young adult cancer patients have particular medical and psychosocial needs. Patient–physician communications are important in any clinical relationship, but fundamental in the oncological sphere because their quality can affect the patient–physician relationship, the therapeutic alliance, and patient compliance. A major challenge when dealing with adolescent and young adult patients lies in striking the right balance between their need and right to understand their disease, treatment, and prognosis, and the need for them to remain hopeful and to protect their emotional sensitivity. We herein describe the activities of the Youth Project of the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Milan, Italy in order to share a possible model of interaction with these special patients and the tactics our group has identified to help them communicate and share their thoughts. This model implies not only the involvement of a multidisciplinary team, including psychologists and spirituality experts, but also the constitution of dedicated creative activities to give patients the opportunity to express feelings they would otherwise never feel at ease putting into words.

    El otro gran pilar de la endocrinología y de la Asociación fue Jaime Cortázar, muerto a comienzos de este mes, el mismo día de Ronald Reagan y casi con los mismos años de ausencia del mundo cognoscitivo que afectaron al presidente norteamericano. Para mi formación Jaime fue más que pilar una brújula y un orientador y un apoyo en esos momentos en que uno se ve forzado a pasar de la adolescencia del pregrado a la madurez de la vida profesional. Mi amistad y mi devoción por él la he dejado consignada en varios de mis libros y en muchos de mis escritos. Mario Sánchez en su prólogo y Alfredo en su libro consagran cómo ellos dos, pero yo diría que sobre todo Jaime, se precuparon por hacer de la diabetes una preocupación nacional y para ello llevarla precozmente a los estrados políticos. Lo mismo que se está haciendo ahora, medio siglo después, pero sin la sencillez y la diafanidad que caracterizaron a nuestros pioneros. Jaime aprovechó su reciente designación como Director del Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, en 1955, para visitar continuamente el Ejecutivo y el Legislativo y hacer conocer el problema y promulgar los decretos que apoyaran el Comité Nacional de Lucha contra la Diabetes, que vió su luz ese año y cuya presidencia ocupó. Su apoyo moral eran la consulta de Endocrinología del Instituto (44.8% de todos los pacientes con alteraciones endocrinas no neoplásicas en los 30 años analizados por Jácome y Mesa en su análisis de dicha consulta, publicado en Medicina el año pasado, fueron diabéticos y la Asociación Colombiana de Diabetes que, como lo dice muy bien el autor, muy pronto acogió a la naciente Sociedad Colombiana de Endocrinología. ¡La presencia estimulante de Jaime vivirá para siempre en el recuerdo de todos sus amigos!...

Definition of IP indicators in the Italian geriatric population affected by cardiovascular disease and chronic comorbidities could be extremely useful for prescribers and could offer advantages from a public health perspective. The purpose of the present study was to identify IP indicators by means of a systematic literature review coupled with consensus criteria. A systematic search of PubMed, EMBASE, and CENTRAL databases was conducted, with the search structured around four themes and combining each with the Boolean operator “and”. The first regarded “prescriptions”, the second “adverse events”, the third “cardiovascular conditions”, and the last was planned to identify studies on “older people”. Two investigators independently reviewed titles, abstracts, full texts, and selected articles addressing IP in the elderly affected by cardiovascular condition using the following inclusion criteria: studies on people aged ≥65 years; studies on patients with no restriction on age but with data on subjects

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Organizar racionalmente los cientos de títulos dedicados a la Lengua de Italia de la orden de San Juan publicados entre los siglos XVI y XX resulta complicado, siendo más útil una aproximación cronológica. El principal punto de referencia se sitúa en las historias generales clásicas del siglo XVI ampliamente documentadas, con espíritu aristocrático y laudatorio hacia la orden (Giacomo Bosio, 1594-1602, Bartolomeo Dal Pozzo, 1589 continuadas en el XVIII (Giandonato Rogadeo, 1782, que culminan con Paolo Maria Paciauli (1780, autor de una construcción teórica que desde la Edad Media delineaba los rasgos de la civilización de la Europa católica. La idea de que los caballeros de la orden de Malta encarnaban los principios espirituales y aristocráticos exigibles a la nobleza italiana destinada al gobierno de las distintas unidades políticas de la península itálica, queda reflejada en muchos escritos de estos siglos. Por otra parte, la defensa de privilegios y derechos propios, junto a las relaciones de los hechos de armas, especialmente de las naves maltesas, y los ruoli o listados de caballeros y sus dignidades, constituyen una parte importante de las ediciones relativas a la orden. Tras casi haber desaparecido su poder político en el siglo XIX, y manteniéndose una línea historiogràfica centrada en aspectos heráldicos y genealógicos, ha sido preciso esperar hasta fines del siglo XX para que la historiografía académica ponga sus ojos en unos archivos preciosos para el estudio del mundo rural, de las relaciones de poder y otros muchos aspectos descuidados en las historias tradicionales de la orden de Malta.ABSTRACT: The essay of a rational organization of hundreds of titles devoted to Tongue of Italy of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem is a difficult task, and a chronological approach seems to be more useful.

    In the 1450s, when Leonardo da Vinci was born, horoscopes were still based primarily on the 13th-century tables developed in the court of Alfonso el Sabio of Spain. By the 15th century European astronomers were computing revised forms of the tables. In Italy, for example, Giovanni Bianchini of Ferrara completed his Tabulae astronomicae in the 1440s. It was finally published posthumously in Venice in 1495. By the 1480s Domenico Maria Novara, a professor of astronomy in Bologna, was publishing annual prognostications of eclipses, conjunctions, and other celestial phenomena. Against this background of traditional astronomy in Italy, two Florentines recorded observations of the sun and moon, comets, and meteorology. Paolo dal Pozzi Toscanelli flourished in the first half of the 15th century and Leonardo da Vinci in the last half. Their observations of celestial phenomena were not primarily for astronomical purposes; they were spinoffs of other pursuits such as medicine, astrology, optics, engineering, and studies of light and shadow. As a physician and cartographer, Toscanelli practiced astrology, studied omens, observed comets and plotted their paths on homemade maps. He also was associated with the construction of a gnomon at the top of the Duomo to observe the summer solstice. It was this project that may have brought him into contact with the young artisan, Leonardo da Vinci. As a painter, Leonardo's approach to science and engineering was to observe, sketch and analyze. His interest in light and shadow led him to notice how the earth, moon and planets all reflect sunlight. His extant manuscripts have geometric sketches for eclipses and for the phenomenon known as "old moon in new moon's arms." Unfortunately, because neither Toscanelli nor Leonardo published their observations, they made no impact on the history of astronomical thought or observation. Their contemporaries did not know or write about their work. Astronomers in the 16th century did not know about

    2013-02-12

    In 2009, Dr. Paolo Zamboni proposed chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) as a possible cause of multiple sclerosis (MS). Although his theory and the associated treatment ("liberation therapy") received little more than passing interest in the international scientific and medical communities, his ideas became the source of tremendous public and political tension in Canada. The story moved rapidly from mainstream media to social networking sites. CCSVI and liberation therapy swiftly garnered support among patients and triggered remarkable and relentless advocacy efforts. Policy makers have responded in a variety of ways to the public's call for action. We present three different perspectives on this evolving story, that of a health journalist who played a key role in the media coverage of this issue, that of a health law and policy scholar who has closely observed the unfolding public policy developments across the country, and that of a medical ethicist who sits on an expert panel convened by the MS Society of Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to assess the evidence as it emerges. This story raises important questions about resource allocation and priority setting in scientific research and science policy. The growing power of social media represents a new level of citizen engagement and advocacy, and emphasizes the importance of open debate about the basis on which such policy choices are made. It also highlights the different ways evidence may be understood, valued and utilized by various stakeholders and further emphasizes calls to improve science communication so as to support balanced and informed decision-making.

To date, there is no information about how this trend will behave over the next few years. The aim of the present study is to define a pharmacoeconomic model for the forecast of the costs of a group of chronically treated patients followed over the period 2004–2009.Methods: A pharmacoeconomics model was built to describe the probability of transition among different health states and to modify the therapy over time. A Markov model was applied to evaluate the temporal evolution of the average cost. The health care resources exploited during hospitalization were analyzed by using an “activity-based costing” method.Results: The Markov model showed that the mean total cost, after an initial increase, tended to remain stable. A total of 20 clinical records were examined. The average daily cost for each patient was EUR 484.42, with a cost for admission of EUR 6781.88.Conclusion: The treatment of HIV infection in compliance with the guidelines is also effective from the payer perspective, as it allows a good health condition to be maintained and reduces the need and the costs of hospitalizations.Keywords: health care cost, HIV, Markov model, activity-based costing

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.

All eyes received large-spot TTT guided by indocyanine green angiography (ICGA. Subthreshold TTT was performed using an 810 nm diode laser with a spot size of 3.0 mm (power was set at 350 mW. Treatment was applied for 60 seconds to the areas of choroidal hyperfluorescence on ICGA.Results: The mean number of TTT sessions was 1.4 ± 0.5. All eyes were followed up for at least 6 months (mean 9.6 ± 3.2 standard deviation; range 6–12 months. The mean logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution best-corrected visual acuity was significantly better compared with baseline. All TTT-treated eyes had stable or improved vision (P < 0.001. Mean optical coherence tomography (OCT central foveal thickness was significantly lower in all patients (P < 0.001 compared with pretreatment OCT, with a reduction in subretinal fluid and resolution of serous detachment associated with anatomical fovea restoration. No patient had any treatment-related side effects.Conclusion: Modified subthreshold TTT appears to have a beneficial effect in treating patients with CCSC and persistent neurosensory detachment. The encouraging results and lack of visually significant complications suggest that further investigation is warranted.Keywords: central serous chorioretinopathy, indocyanine green angiography, neurosensory detachment, transpupillary

    To analyse the accuracy and reproducibility of photogrammetry in detecting thoracic abnormalities in infants born prematurely. Cross-sectional study. The Premature Clinic at the Federal University of São Paolo. Fifty-eight infants born prematurely in their first year of life. Measurement of the manubrium/acromion/trapezius angle (degrees) and the deepest thoracic retraction (cm). Digitised photographs were analysed by two blinded physiotherapists using a computer program (SAPO; http://SAPO.incubadora.fapesp.br) to detect shoulder elevation and thoracic retraction. Physical examinations performed independently by two physiotherapists were used to assess the accuracy of the new tool. Thoracic alterations were detected in 39 (67%) and in 40 (69%) infants by Physiotherapists 1 and 2, respectively (kappa coefficient=0.80). Using a receiver operating characteristic curve, measurement of the manubrium/acromion/trapezius angle and the deepest thoracic retraction indicated accuracy of 0.79 and 0.91, respectively. For measurement of the manubrium/acromion/trapezius angle, the Bland and Altman limits of agreement were -6.22 to 7.22° [mean difference (d)=0.5] for repeated measures by one physiotherapist, and -5.29 to 5.79° (d=0.75) between two physiotherapists. For thoracic retraction, the intra-rater limits of agreement were -0.14 to 0.18cm (d=0.02) and the inter-rater limits of agreement were -0.20 to -0.17cm (d=0.02). SAPO provided an accurate and reliable tool for the detection of thoracic abnormalities in preterm infants. Copyright © 2011 Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

    Full Text Available Mauro Rigato, Gian Paolo Fadini Department of Medicine, University Hospital of Padova, Padova, Italy Abstract: Type 2 diabetes is characterized by a progressive decline in beta cell function, with consequent worsening of glycemic control. The ideal antihyperglycemic treatment should achieve good and sustained glycemic control, with a low risk of hypoglycemia and no weight gain. This paper reviews the efficacy and tolerability of liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Once-daily injection of liraglutide (at doses of 1.2 mg and 1.8 mg, as monotherapy or in combination with one or two oral antihyperglycemic agents, was associated with greater improvements in glycemic control compared with active comparators or placebo in several controlled, randomized Phase III trials, including the six trials of the LEAD (Liraglutide Effect and Action in Diabetes program. Liraglutide also improved beta cell function, body weight, systolic blood pressure, and lipid profile, thereby achieving many of the goals of ideal antihyperglycemic therapy. Liraglutide was generally well tolerated in the Phase III trials. The most common adverse events were nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, usually of mild to moderate intensity. The observed rate of pancreatitis was low and comparable with that of the general diabetic population. In conclusion, although most trials were relatively short and focused on surrogate endpoints, liraglutide emerges as an effective and well tolerated treatment for type 2 diabetes, carrying a low risk of hypoglycemia, weight loss, and possible reduction of cardiovascular risk.

    Full Text Available Conoscere gli animali familiari è la settima uscita della collana diretta da Paolo Polidori "produzioni animali e sicurezza alimentare" sulla ricerca nell'ambito della nutrizione e alimentazione animale, zootecnia, ispezione degli alimenti di origine animale, clinica medica e parassitologia veterinaria con risvolti di natura tecnica, scientifica e pratica. Il volume, redatto da medici veterinari in servizio presso differenti Aziende Sanitarie italiane, è un sintetico manuale su domesticazione, cura sanitaria, etnografia e addestramento del proprio cane (o gatto. Gli autori partono dall'assunto che i proprietari scelgono il cane per lo più sulla base del gusto visivo o sulla consuetudine tramandata in famiglia, senza un'esaustiva conoscenza degli aspetti riguardanti l'origine dell'animale, la sua attitudine prevalente, le sue patologie ricorrenti e le eventuali predisposizioni genetiche nei confronti di una determinata patologia. Puntano l'accento sin dalle prime battute sul cambiamento culturale che ha modificato anche il rapporto uomo-animale sotto l'aspetto sociale, effettuale e giuridico. L'animale da semplice "res" si è da tempo affermato come un essere diverso ma senziente, quindi destinatario di tutele, con diritti contemplati dalle carte costituzionali di diversi Paesi. Per questo motivo chi detiene un animale domestico deve prepararsi ad un impegno non riducibile al possesso di un oggetto, al punto di risponderne penalmente per eventuali sofferenze fisiche o psicologiche, per l'abbandono (anche solo temporaneo o per l'incuria. Conoscere gli animali familiari fornisce nozioni scientifiche e sanitarie alla portata di tutti, utili soprattutto nelle occasioni in cui i proprietari dovranno recarsi dal veterinario o affrontare visite legate alla profilassi e alle vaccinazioni di routine.

    The discovery of the lymphatic system has a long and fascinating history. The interest in anatomy and physiology of this system paralleled that of the blood cardiocirculatory system and has been maybe obscured by the latter. Paradoxically, if the closed blood system appeared open in Galen's anatomy and physiology, and took a very long time to be correctly described in terms of pulmonary and general circulation by ibn Al-Nafis/Michael Servetus/Realdo Colombo and William Harvey, respectively, the open lymphatic system was incorrectly described as a closed circuit connected with arteries and veins. In ancient times only macroscopic components of the lymphatic system have been described, although misinterpreted, including lymph nodes and lacteals, the latter being easily identified because of their milk-like content. For about 15 centuries the dogmatic acceptance of Galen's notions did not allow a significant progress in medicine. After Vesalius' revolution in anatomical studies, new knowledge was accumulated, and the 17th century was the golden age for the investigation of the lymphatic system with several discoveries: gut lacteals (Gaspare Aselli), cloacal bursa (Hieronimus Fabricius of Acquapendente), reservoir of the chyle (Jean Pecquet), extra-intestinal lymphatic vessels (Thomas Bartholin and Olaus Rudbeck dispute), hepatic lymph circulation (Francis Glisson). In the Enlightenment century Frederik Ruysch described the function of lymphatic valves, and Paolo Mascagni provided a magnificent iconography of the lymphatic network in humans. In recent times, Leonetto Comparini realized three-dimensional reconstructions of the liver lymphatic vessels, and Kari Alitalo discovered the lymphatic growth factor/receptor system. Far from a complete understanding of its anatomy and function, the lymphatic system still needs to be profoundly examined. © 2017 Anatomical Society.

    Full Text Available Giorgio Ardita, Giacomo Failla, Paolo Maria Finocchiaro, Francesco Mugno, Luigi Attanasio, Salvatore Timineri, Michelangelo Maria Di SalvoCardiovascular Department, Angiology Unit, Ferrarotto Hospital, Catania, ItalyAbstract: Connective tissue diseases (CTDs are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease due to accelerated atherosclerosis. In patients with autoimmune disorders, in addition to traditional risk factors, an immune-mediated inflammatory process of the vasculature seems to contribute to atherogenesis. Several pathogenetic mechanisms have been proposed, including chronic inflammation and immunologic abnormalities, both able to produce vascular damage. Macrovascular atherosclerosis can be noninvasively evaluated by ultrasound measurement of carotid or femoral plaque. Subclinical atherosclerosis can be evaluated by well-established noninvasive techniques which rely on ultrasound detection of carotid intima-media thickness. Flow-mediated vasodilatation and arterial stiffness are considered markers of endothelial dysfunction and subclinical atherosclerosis, respectively, and have been recently found to be impaired early in a wide spectrum of autoimmune diseases. Carotid intima-media thickness turns out to be a leading marker of subclinical atherosclerosis, and many studies recognize its role as a predictor of future vascular events, both in non-CTD individuals and in CTD patients. In rheumatic diseases, flow-mediated dilatation and arterial stiffness prove to be strongly correlated with inflammation, disease damage index, and with subclinical atherosclerosis, although their prognostic role has not yet been conclusively shown. Systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and likely antiphospholipid syndrome are better associated with premature and accelerated atherosclerosis. Inconclusive results were reported in systemic sclerosis.Keywords: rheumatic disease, subclinical atherosclerosis, arterial stiffness

    Full Text Available Paolo Mannelli,1 Li-Tzy Wu1–41Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, 2Department of Medicine, 3Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke University Medical Center, 4Center for Child and Family Policy, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University, Durham, NC, USARecent reports on prescription opioid misuse and abuse have described unprecedented peaks of a national crisis and the only answer is to expand prevention and treatment, including different levels of care.1 Nonetheless, concerns remain about the ability of busy primary care settings to manage problem opioid users along with other patients. In particular, proposed extensions of buprenorphine treatment, a critically effective intervention for opioid use disorder (OUD, are cautiously considered due to the potential risk of misuse or abuse.2 General practitioners are already facing this burden daily in the treatment of chronic pain, and expert supervision and treatment model adjustment are needed to help improve outcomes. Approximately 20% of patients in primary care have noncancer pain symptoms, with most of them receiving opioid prescriptions by their physicians, and their number is increasing.3 Pain diagnoses are comparable in severity to those of tertiary centers and are complicated by significant psychiatric comorbidity, with a measurable lifetime risk of developing OUD.4,5 Some primary care physicians report frustration about opioid abuse and diversion by their patients; support from pain specialists would improve their competence, the quality f their performance, and the ability to identify patients at risk of opioid misuse.6 Thus, buprenorphine treatment should not be adding to a complex clinical scenario. To this end, the promising models of care emphasize the integration of medical with psychological and pharmacological expertise for the management of OUD.

Recent studies suggested that the allergen load presents seasonal modifications, giving rise to seasonal variation in nasal inflammation and symptoms. The aim of this study was to evaluate by nasal cytology whether nasal inflammation in mite-allergic patients changes with the seasons of the year. Methods: The study included 16 patients (seven males and nine females, mean age 38.1 years with persistent AR caused by monosensitization to HDMs. Nasal cytology was performed in all patients once monthly for 1 year. Results: Nasal cytology showed that the cells most commonly detected in the nasal mucosa were neutrophils. During the period from October to April, a peak in the number of neutrophils and also the presence of significant numbers of eosinophils, mast cells, and lymphocytes/plasma cells were found, which shows the occurrence of more intense inflammation during these months. Conclusion: Nasal cytology provides useful data in detecting nasal inflammation and its association with the clinical stage of AR. The seasonal variations in nasal cytology are likely to be induced by the fluctuations in the HDM allergen that have been uncovered in recent investigations. Keywords: allergens
