    Full Text Available Con frecuencia resuelvo consultas sobre los procedimientos que se llevan a cabo en la revista, por E-mail, en conferencias, charlas, en el pasadizo. Muchas de las preguntas se repiten o son en esencia las mismas. Sin embargo, algunas preguntas son difíciles de responder para mí, generalmente la respuestas se convierten en un espiral de conceptos algunas veces aparen- temente inconexos. En el presente escrito tampoco responderé a las preguntas sino que intentaré relacionarlas con el aspecto más importante dentro de una política editorial, la comunidad científica que la sustenta, una comunidad en la búsqueda de encontrar la verdad y que busca un medio para difundir sus investigaciones

  2. Asociatividad, Capital Social y Redes Sociales

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrés Aguirre

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Este trabajo indaga en la percepción de los actores sociales, las relaciones interpersonales, los significados asociados y las redes sociales autogeneradas en las prácticas asociativas que se desarrollan en este ámbito de sociabilidad compartida. Nuestro análisis se sustenta en la teoría de los campos de Pierre Bourdieu, la que opera como corpus articulador de los aspectos asociativos directos encontrados, incorporando de igual forma aspectos de la teoría del capital social, y el enfoque de redes sociales, aplicado al contexto de esta organización social. Para obtener el conocimiento así planteado, nos aproximamos al discurso, a los relatos que respecto a su asociatividad, enuncian los propios miembros del club de fútbol amateur. En este sentido, elaboramos un diseño de investigación cualitativo cuya técnica de observación y captación del sentido se basó en una serie de entrevistas semi-estructuradas. Al concluir, se desarrolla y presenta un análisis de los resultados obtenidos, entre los cuales destaca la riqueza de la vida asociativa, espacios de sociabilidad, redes de ayuda mutua, convivencia intergeneracional conformadora de identidad social, así como el potencial de capital social subyacente.

  3. Microemprendimientos, asociatividad y gestión de organizaciones sociales

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Madelin Sánchez Otero

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene como propósito presentar avances del proyecto titulado “Promoción, desarrollo y fortalecimiento a organizaciones solidarias de los departamentos del Atlántico, Bolívar y Magdalena”; específicamente sur del Atlántico, sobre aspectos generales de las unidades productivas o micro-emprendimientos en el marco de la política pública. Así mismo, la asociatividad como elemento clave en la dinámica actual de la economía y su relación con los micro-emprendimientos, a partir de la creación de organizaciones de economía solidaria y el reto que implica gestionarlas. Se reflexiona sobre la conexión entre los planteamientos teóricos y las características generales que distinguen este tipo de emprendimientos. Los avances del proyecto y la revisión teórica evidencian que estos microemprendimientos tienen grandes limitaciones para ser sostenibles y rentables. Además, el individualismo y desconfianza son obstáculos para la asociatividad. Sumado a ello, cuando se logran los procesos de asociatividad de manera formal y se crean organizaciones de economía solidaria se presenta una problemática: su gestión. Porque las personas carecen de la competencias necesarias para realizarlo. A través de la política pública se ha impulsado el fortalecimiento de las pequeñas unidades; pero aún existe gran brecha entre la dinámica de estas y la operatividad de la política pública.

    facilitan la descripción de su evolución. Esta investigación, presenta -a través del análisis comparativo de dos experiencias de aglomeración industrial en Colombia que se construyen actualmente- una perspectiva de la evolución de la asociatividad y plantea etapas de dicha evolución, proponiendo que ésta se alcanza por fases que muestran características más o menos definidas. Esta propuesta de etapas, tiene consecuencias en la conformación de las aglomeraciones industriales que son jalonadas por empresas tractoras, desarrolladas por entes facilitadores o impulsadas espontáneamente por las propias empresas. También tiene consecuencias en la evolución de la política de ciencia, tecnología e innovación.

    Full Text Available El estudio tiene el objetivo de examinar las dificultades de los bachilleres en la identificación de preguntas científicas investigables en el marco de la realización de trabajos de indagación autónoma y también cu ando se les proponen ejercicios relacionad os con la competencia de evaluar y diseñar indagaciones científicas. Los referentes de la literatura consideran la identificación de preguntas investigables como el primer paso de la indagación y explicitan las características que definen estas preguntas. Estos referentes también indican que la confusión entre preguntas d e información y preguntas de investigación es uno de los errores más habituales de los estudiantes y los resultados del presente estudio coinciden en esta apreciación. Se ha observado que l a comprensión conceptual del fenómeno es un elemento necesario para identificar preguntas científicas investigables, pero no suficiente. Se ha examinado la evolución de los estudiantes desde las preguntas iniciales de información como ‘¿Qué es...?’ o ‘¿Por qué...?’ hasta las preguntas adecuadas, que son preguntes investigables, como ‘¿Qué sucede si...?’ o ‘¿Se observa alguna diferencia si...?’ , y se ha mostrado que el diálogo entre estudiante y profesor favorece el proceso.

Se formula una metáfora entre estos dos campos del conocimiento, sobre la base de los principios de la teoría general de sistemas. El documento concluye exponiendo las ventajas y limitaciones de esta metodología conceptual para el caso de las cadenas productivas agropecuarias.

  15. Análisis de la sostenibilidad de los procesos de fortalecimiento de la asociatividad rural: El caso de Asomora

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Holmes Rodríguez

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available En Colombia, se han implementado diversas políticas públicas de apoyo a la organización de productores rurales, como estrategia para mejorar el acceso al mercado de los pequeños productores, con resultados poco satisfactorios para el esfuerzo realizado. El objetivo de éste estudio fue identificar los factores relacionados con el logro de la sostenibilidad de los procesos de fortalecimiento de la asociatividad rural. Se realizó una investigación cualitativa a partir del estudio de caso de la Asociación de Productores de Mora (Asomora de la localidad de Trujillo en el departamento del Valle del Cauca. El proceso de fortalecimiento de la asociación, tuvo como logro más importante el incremento en el ingreso del productor por el acceso directo al mercado. Sin embargo, el proceso no logró alcanzar la sostenibilidad de la organización debido principalmente al individualismo, bajo compromiso de los productores con la organización y falta de capital financiero para competir con los intermediarios. Los resultados de este estudio permiten concluir que para el logro de la sostenibilidad de los procesos de asociatividad rural, se deben abordar de manera integral aspectos: económicos, técnicos, ambientales, políticos y sociales, que permitan garantizar la construcción de capital social, por medio de relaciones de confianza entre los asociados y su compromiso para el logro de los planes construidos de manera participativa, mediante la acción colectiva.

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available El propósito del articulo es plantar, en líneas generales, una alternativa hacia donde podría encaminarse la actividad de investigación sobre la pequeña y mediana industria que no solo contribuya a conocer mas a fondo la problemática del sector, sino que a partir del mismo trabajo se comiencen a crear las condiciones para la promoción de la asociatividad y la cooperación entre empresas ya que, frente a los grandes retos que impone el entorno internacional, la asociatividad y el acuerdo entre las empresas se constituye en instrumento de desarrollo para mejorar su competitividad. Para establecer las posibilidades e identificar dificultades del proceso de asociación y cooperación; identificar las características socioeconómicas: Producción, empleo, perfil del empresario, grado de informalidad, perspectivas empresariales, entre otros, y comenzar a crear las condiciones para promover el proceso, se propone la realización del trabajo de investigación basado en la metodología de investigación cualitativa en un esfuerzo por integrar el cuerpo de pensamiento relacionado con el tema del capital social y el desarrollo endogeno y el relacionado con el tema de la competitividad.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pampa Olga Arán

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Quisiera reflexionar sobre el problema del autor en Bajtín que es objeto de numerosos asedios a lo largo de su obra: como personaje, como ideólogo de la arquitectónica, como voz enmascarada, como oído polifónico, como interlocutor en diálogo cronotopizado. Propongo recorrer estas posiciones desde el vínculo entre la historia intelectual del autor- pensador Bajtín y su noción teórica de autor (autoría, que aunque va adquiriendo diferentes modulaciones es siempre la pregunta por el sujeto, su modo de existencia y de conciencia, la producción de diferentes formas de conocimiento de sí mismo y del mundo a través de relaciones intersubjetivas. Con Bajtín asistimos a un proceso de transformación del sujeto civilizatorio de la Modernidad y su reemplazo por un sujeto moral del discurso. Finalizo con una breve comparación con el texto de Barthes sobre la muerte del autor.

    Full Text Available La aplicación de este tipo de periodismo en los países latinoamericanos plantea muchas dudas y retos. Los contextos diferentes establecen la imposibilidad de un traslado mecánico de las experiencias, aunque las de E. U. puedan ser útiles al ser asumidas críticamente. Muchas dudas y preguntas existen al inicio de este proyecto en un diario de una ciudad como Guayaquil, cuya complejidad y drama humano son enormes. Periodismo cívico o comunitario se ha llamado a la historia humana, las noticias de interés ciudadano, el seguimiento a los hechos cotidianos, el ir por delante de los políticos, exigiéndoles actuar en temas que ellos no esperan... En E.U. especialmente los periódicos pequeños de corto alcance encontraron en el Periodismo comunitario la solución a su inminente desaparición.

    Full Text Available El objetivo principal de este artículo es describir los aspectos más relevantes de las relaciones de cooperación en innovación entre empresas pertenecientes al Programa de Asociatividad y Desa - rrollo Empresarial Sectorial -PADES- de la Asociación Colombiana de Micro, Pequeñas y Medianas Empresas -ACOPI- en el departamento de Antioquia (Colombia. La investigación es de carácter exploratorio, se indagó fundamentalmente la opinión de gerentes / personal de la alta dirección y se utilizó el análisis descriptivo para establecer frecuencias en materia de actividades y resultados de innovación; agentes, motivos, obstáculos para la cooperación en innovación y fuentes de finan - ciación. Los resultados muestran que las empresas, cooperan mayoritariamente con empresas del PADES, realizan innovaciones blandas, poco intensivas en conocimiento, sobre todo en materia organizacional y en marketing, financiadas mayormente con recursos propios. Además, que la falta de confianza y de cultura son sus mayores obstáculos para la cooperación en innovación.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Adryan Fabrizio Pineda Repizzo

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available En la tradición del pensamiento occidental, la pregunta “¿Qué es el arte?” ha jugado un papel central, aunque enigmático, para el campo de la filosofía, donde se han avanzado tantas objeciones y respuestas tentativas, que hoy pareciera que han sido tantos esfuerzos sin rumbo ni asidero en el mundo real del arte. Este texto afronta la plausibilidad de asumir la pregunta “¿Qué es el arte?” como problema filosófico. Para responder a este cuestionamiento acudimos a Wittgenstein, con el fin de realizarle una terapia filosófica a la pregunta misma y así mostrar que los principales paradigmas filosóficos sobre este asunto no son sino la manifestación de una confusión del lenguaje en torno al término ‘arte’.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available La plataforma Moodle, de educación virtual, posibilita la evaluación de alumnos a través de cuestionarios. Sin embargo, la creación de preguntas tiene las siguientes dificultades: ingresar un número considerable de preguntas es tedioso y es posible incurrir en errores de digitación; no posee un editor de LaTeX; sólo se pueden generar preguntas aleatorias mediante el tipo de calculadas. En este sentido, Scientific WorkPlace® ofrece ventajas respecto a la creación de preguntas, brindando la posibilidad de crear una plantilla de preguntas, de la cual se puede generar cuestionarios específicos. No obstante, la plantilla de preguntas no es compatible con los formatos admitidos por Moodle. Entonces, en éste trabajo se propone un algoritmo para convertir evaluaciones realizadas en Scientific WorkPlace® en la plantilla en formato GIFT (General Import Format Technology para Moodle; se presenta un prototipo llamado tex2Gift para validar el algoritmo propuesto.

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Problema. La mujer vinculada a actividades de criminalidad ha sido estudiada desde diferentes perspectivas. A pesar de los hallazgos, quedan preguntas por resolver. Una mirada panorámica indica vacíos, respuestas con escasa fundamentación teórica y metodológica, y conclusiones que reproducen sesgos culturales con repercusiones en la formulación de políticas públicas. Este avance de una investigación subraya algunos problemas que podrían abordarse en un país como Colombia, caracterizado por conflictos sin resolver. Método. Se hace una revisión de literatura secundaria, en la cual se identifican preguntas y respuestas de las que surgen perspectivas de tratamiento de nuevos problemas que pueden ser abordados mediante la investigación. Conclusiones. Se requiere más investigación para comprender facetas de la criminalidad en general, y específicamente de la participación femenina, en delitos de gran impacto social, que van desde asaltos a residencias, violencias contra ciudadanos en las calles y asesinatos, hasta la globalización del crimen representado en la narcoactividad, lavado de activos, tráfico de seres humanos y delitos informáticos.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper describes the work carried out for automatically generating titles for questions included in the opinion polls contained in CIS databases (Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas – Spanish Center of Sociological Research. In the context of CIS, the title of a question should meet two requirements: from the point of view of form, it has to be grammatically correct and similar in style to existing ones; from the point of view of content, it must contain the subject of the question and the different options for answering. These conditions for form and content of titles discourage the use of techniques used in similar problems, such as automatic abstracting or machine learning with a training corpus, but rather favor a methodology based on an analysis and knowledge of the domain. To illustrate the analysis and the resolution strategy of the problem, we have selected a set of questions related to elections, due to their strategic importance and to CIS’s own specialization in opinion polls. The process followed and the subsequent evaluation of results are discussed in detail, with an assessment of both qualitative and quantitative aspects. The evaluation shows that 88.73% of the generated titles are in strict accordance with CIS’s requisites on form and content, resulting in reduced time spent by the institution’s qualified personnel on manual work.Este artículo describe el trabajo realizado para la generación automática de los títulos de las preguntas pertenecientes a las encuestas de opinión que existen en las bases de datos del CIS (Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas.

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo se analiza las preguntas que se utilizan para evaluar la comprensión crítica en los libros de texto de educación secundaria en el Perú, los cuales son distribuidos de manera gratuita en el país. El análisis se aborda desde la perspectiva de los Estudios Críticos del Discurso y la literacidad crítica. Los resultados demuestran que si bien han aumentado el número de preguntas críticas en relación con las ediciones anteriores, la mayor parte de estas no demandan una comprensión crítica; por el contrario, pueden ser respondidas incluso sin haber comprendido el texto. Las preguntas pueden adoptar diversas estructuras y la mayoría de ellas conducen al lector para obtener una respuesta esperada por el autor. Sin embargo, hay preguntas que condicionan más que otras. Aquellas que generan varias posibilidades de respuesta se adecúan mejor a la lectura crítica; en cambio, las que tienen una sola posibilidad de respuesta, restringen la comprensión crítica. Además, a través de las preguntas también se transmiten ideologías, creencias y suposiciones del autor.How to reference this articleZárate Pérez, A. (2015.

Aunque pueda ser discutida la validez o no de esas acciones, pues ellas pueden depender de los objetivos de la clase y estar influenciadas también por la situación de evaluación por la presencia de un observador, estimamos que el hecho debe ser analizado y discutido con los futuros docentes, en el intento de reflexionar sobre la existencia de otras formas menos asimétricas de realizar las preguntas (por ejemplo, preguntar de forma general antes de nombrar a algún alumno en específico lo que puede ayudar para establecer un mejor clima afectivo y un mejor aprovechamiento de los contenidos presentados, así como un manejo eficaz de la sala de aula. Con la literatura revisada se trata de mostrar que, aunque hayan sido muy estudiadas las preguntas de los profesores desde diversas perspectivas, ese aspecto hasta ahora ha sido descuidado y puede ser motivo de estudios más profundos.

  18. Inseguridades: otra vuelta de tuerca sobre la pregunta por los medios

    Full Text Available [es] La relación entre los medios y la violencia constituye una de las preocupaciones fundantes del campo de estudios de la comunicación, expresada en torno a la pregunta sobre los efectos de la propaganda. La aparición de dispositivos técnicos que hacen posible la transmisión masiva se desarrollan en contextos de guerra, situación que marca las preocupaciones que dieron origen a las preguntas sobre los efectos de los medios de la sociología norteamericana (Mattelart, 1998. En un contexto como el nuestro, en el que la inseguridad es una de las principales preocupaciones de los argentinos (Latinbarómetro, 2008 se actualizan las preguntas sobre la relación entre medios y violencia, ya que se modifican tanto la visibilidad como la experiencia de las violencias – algunas asociadas al término inseguridad- como el modo de producción cultural marcado por el proceso de mediatización. Luego de una superinflación de la cuestión de la seguridad en los medios (Vilker, 2009, hoy se revelan avances en la discusión teórico metodológica en torno a la relación entre los medios de comunicación, la representación mediática de la seguridad y lo que se denomina como cultura de la victimización o sentimiento de inseguridad. Este artículo se inscribe en ese debate, para plantear nuevos interrogantes y discusiones que permitan complejizar los abordajes sobre la cuestión.

    Full Text Available Observando la recurrencia de la guerra en nuestra época y, de paso, confirmando los acontecimientos humanos en lo que respecta a la guerra a lo largo de la historia conocida, es necesario seguir insistiendo en algunas preguntas que permitan pensarla de tal manera que podamos dilucidar la dimensión que ésta tiene en la vida humana. ¿Hay una naturaleza humana guerrera? ¿son evitables las guerras? ¿son un factor de progreso de la humanidad? ¿se puede ejercer la guerra de manera controlada? ¿es ésta susceptible de ser ejercida bajo la dirección de normas morales? ¿puede haber una guerra no cruel? Estas cuestiones y otras más pueden pensarse sin perjuicio de que la guerra deje de ser comprendida como lo que realmente es: una calamidad, al menos por lo que concierne a las consecuencias más inmediatas de sus acciones.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Se pregunta por los presupuestos que permiten comprender en los tiempos actuales la relación entre la teología y la filosofía, desde la óptica de un creyente. Se parte de una tipificación de seis figuras o formas posibles de entender la relación entre ambas disciplinas: 1 la figura de la identidad, según la cual la filosofía de un cristiano sería indiscernible de la teología; 2 la figura de la diferencia, para la cual filosofía y teología serían disciplinas inconmensurables; 3 la figura del influjo, que enfatiza el condicionamiento mutuo de la filosofía y la teología desde un punto de vista histórico-existencial; 4 la figura de la subordinación, que defiende la tesis de que la filosofía solo alcanza su objetivo con ayuda de la teología; 5 la figura de la oposición, que advierte una amenaza recíproca entre la filosofía y la teología; y finalmente 6 la figura del diálogo, sostenida por el propio autor del artículo, y según la cual filosofía y teología, sin confundirse, se enriquecen mutuamente. El artículo finaliza con algunas consideraciones y preguntas relacionadas con las condiciones de posibilidad del diálogo entre el teólogo y el filósofo que no es creyenteABSTRACT The author seeks the foundations which provide a better understanding of the relation theology and philosophy in modern times, from the perspective of a believer. The author classifies six figures or possible ways of understanding the relationship between both disciplines: 1 the figure of identity, which claims that philosophy of a Christian is indiscernible from theology; 2 the figure of difference, according to which philosophy and theology would be non measurable disciplines; 3 the figure of influx, which emphasises the mutual conditioning of philosophy and theology from a historic--existential point of view; 4 the figure of subordination, which stands for the position that philosophy only achieves its goal with the help of theology; 5 the

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available En la poesía cancioneril cuatrocentista el amor es tema privilegiado y el género pregunta/respuesta se muestra particularmente adecuado para discutir cuestiones de naturaleza amatoria. Sin embargo, la lectura de las colecciones poéticas castellanas permite reconocer la existencia, en número inferior, de preguntas/respuestas que versan sobre temáticas filosóficas y morales. La situación no es distinta en el Cancioneiro Geral de Garcia de Resende, donde el género se caracteriza también por la coexistencia, en proporción idéntica, de las temáticas amorosa y filosófica. El propósito de este artículo es, analizando este tipo peculiar de composiciones en el corpus portugués, ver de qué manera esta modalidad de intercambio poético permite un tratamiento dinámico y original de cuestiones existenciales y de razonamientos sobre la falta de valores. Así, la interacción entre el interrogador y el autor de la respuesta permite alargar el ámbito de la pregunta, revelando otras interpretaciones posibles para el problema planteado. La pregunta/respuesta de naturaleza filosófica y moral constituye además un ejercicio donde los poetas testan su pericia a través de juegos retóricos que subvierten la argumentación del adversario.

    2009-05-01

    There is an almost total lack of empirical research on stalking among juveniles. To examine the characteristics, nature and impacts of stalking by juveniles. Analysis of consecutive court applications for a restraining order against a juvenile because of stalking behaviours. A total of 299 juvenile stalkers were identified. The majority were male (64%) and their victims predominantly female (69%). Most pursued a previously known victim (98%), favouring direct means of contact via unwanted approaches (76%) and telephone calls or text messaging (67%). Threats (75%) and physical and sexual assaults (54%) were common. The contexts for juvenile stalking involved an extension of bullying (28%), retaliation for a perceived harm (22%), a reaction to rejection (22%), sexual predation (5%) and infatuation (2%). Juvenile stalking is characterised by direct, intense, overtly threatening and all too often violent forms of pursuit. The seriousness that is afforded to adult forms of stalking should similarly apply to this behaviour among juveniles given the even greater rates of disruption to the victim's life and risks of being attacked.

  11. Juvenile Justice in Mexico

    Full Text Available The first tribunal in Mexico was established in the central state of San Luis Potosi in 1926. The Law Regarding Social Prevention and Juvenile Delinquency for the Federal District and Mexican territories was promulgated in 1928. In 2005, Article 18 of the Mexican Constitution was modified to establish a comprehensive system (“Sistema Integral de justicia” in Spanish of justice for juveniles between 12 and 18 years old who had committed a crime punishable under criminal law. Its objective was to guarantee juveniles all the due process rights established for adults, in addition to the special ones recognized for minors. The constitutional reform also provides a framework that includes special tribunals as well as alternative justice options for juveniles. With these reforms, institutionalization of minors was to be considered an extreme measure applicable only to felonies and to juveniles older than 14. In 2006, all states within the Mexican federation enacted the “Law of justice for adolescents”. This system, at both the federal and state levels, formalizes a new global paradigm with regard to the triangular relationship between children, the State and the Law. It recognizes that children are also bearers of the inherent human rights recognized for all individuals, instead of simply objects in need of protection. However, despite formally aligning Mexican juvenile justice law with the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC, issues of actual substantive rights remained and new ones have appeared. For example, juveniles younger than 14 who have not committed a felony are released from institutions without any rehabilitation or treatment options, and alternative forms of justice were included without evaluating their possibilities of application or their conditions for success. In addition, the economic status of most juvenile detainees continues to be one of the most important determining factors in the administration of justice

  14. Juveniles in criminal procedure

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lukić Tatjana

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Taking into consideration the importance and role of children in modern society, as well as their position, this article has as its focus juveniles in criminal procedure. The existence of a separate juvenile justice system independent of the criminal law applicable to the adult offenders and general criminal procedure, as well as the periodic changes of the dominant approach in theory and practice reflects the ascendancy of different theoretical perspectives in the juvenile justice. In this paper, the authors scrutinize the models of responding to juvenile crime - justice and welfare model - as two models of the greatest importance in the present reaction of the society to the crimes conducted by the youngest delinquents at the beginning of the new century and millennium. Furthermore, the paper deals with a matter of international legal standards which, to a large extent, give shape to the legal framework for juvenile offenders and provide their rights and position in the criminal procedure. The authors refer to the internationally accepted documents on several levels. From the (almost universally accepted multilateral conventions on human rights, through the field of recommendations, rules and guidelines which are obeyed and enforced in practice of the juvenile justice although they are of non-binding nature, via the regional European legislative to the national provisions in a particular number of countries. On all the levels mentioned above the rights of the juveniles are regulated having in mind their possible role in the criminal procedure as a perpetrator of a criminal act, as a victim or as a witness. This paper also analyzes the criminal procedure with respect to juvenile perpetrators of the criminal acts in the Republic of Serbia and compliance of the provisions currently in vigor with the international legal standards contained in the international conventions and other internationally accepted and recognized instruments.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Trunk asymmetry (TA is a common phenomenon in children, but its incidence in juveniles is not known. The present cross sectional study reports TA in normal juveniles and provides data which describe the evolution of TA from early childhood to adolescence. Materials and methods The scoliometer readings in both standing and sitting forward bending position (FBP of 3301 children, (1645 boys, and 1656 girls aged from 3 to 9 years old were studied. TA was quantified by measuring angle of trunk rotation (ATR and children were categorized as symmetric (ATR = 0°, mild asymmetric (ATR 1° – 6° and severely asymmetric (ATR ≥ 7°. The difference of TA between standing and sitting FBP as well as differences between boys and girls in frequency of TA were also calculated. The scoliometer readings were analyzed by age to reveal at which age the juvenile pattern of TA changes into the adolescent one. Results 74.2% of boys and 77% of girls were symmetric (ATR = 0° in the thoracic region in standing FBP, while 82.7% of boys and 84.1% of girls were symmetric in the thoracic region in sitting FBP. Juvenile girls are more symmetric than boys but severe TA was found almost the same between the two genders. A significant reduction in the frequency of mild TA from standing into sitting FBP, in all the examined regions in both boys and girls was found, but in severe TA this reduction is very small. Analysing scoliometer readings by age it appears that significant TA changes take place between 8–9 years of age for boys and between 6–7 and 8–9 years for girls. TA in boys is changing into the adolescent pattern at a later age than in girls. Conclusion Juveniles were found more symmetric than adolescents, who were studied previously in a different study. Furthermore, juvenile girls were found more symmetric than boys. Juvenile TA pattern seems to be in accordance with the higher incidence of juvenile idiopathic scoliosis in boys. Furthermore

    2017-07-01

    In properly selected dogs, juvenile pubic symphysiodesis improves joint congruity, decreases hip laxity, and can reverse or prevent progression of degenerative joint disease in the hips. To be effective, surgery must be done at a young age and in hips that are only mildly to moderately lax. Juvenile pubic symphysiodesis is best viewed more as a preemptive procedure than as a strictly therapeutic one. Dogs considered to be at risk for hip dysplasia should be screened with Ortolani testing at 12 weeks of age, with further imaging and perhaps surgery to follow for those who have a positive Ortolani sign.

Para ello se realiza el análisis de un corpus del lenguaje parlamentario constituido por las transcripciones de las sesiones del pleno del Congreso de los Diputados. Se observa que este tipo de pregunta no es una interacción conversacional normal, debido a la violación de las máximas de intercambio cooperativo de Grice (1975 y 1978. Sin embargo, los turnos de preguntas y respuestas obedecen al principio de cooperación porque responden a las exigencias dialógicas del momento, el lugar, la finalidad y la norma convencional de referencia, de forma que dichos turnos conforman un género discursivo con una estructuración convencional, para el cual la violación de las máximas es funcional. Posteriormente se realiza un análisis de diferentes funciones comunicativas de la pregunta que lleva a una propuesta de clasificación dentro del lenguaje parlamentario. Se llega a la conclusión de que se puede establecer una categorización de la pregunta, basándose en las condiciones de textualidad de la estructura informativa del texto.

    Full Text Available En el año 2000 se presentó lo que se dio en llamar nuestro libro de la vida, el primer borrador del Genoma Humano. Aquello generó grandes expectativas por sus potenciales aplicaciones en beneficio de las ciencias biológicas. ¿Qué ha sucedido 10 años después? Se conoce cuántos genes tenemos en nuestro genoma y se analizó la función de algunos de ellos. Se conocen las secuencias de los genomas de unos 14 mamíferos y borradores o genomas completos de otros numerosos vertebrados, invertebrados, hongos, plantas y diversos microorganismos. Sin embargo, el estudio del genoma no se limita a la mera descripción de las secuencias que lo componen. Las respuestas que demos abarcarán enfoques muy diversos desde evolución y conservación de la biodiversidad hasta terapia génica y transformación maligna, donde el estudio de las respuestas individuales y poblacionales utiliza fuentes de información tanto pasadas como actuales sobre estos genomas en estudio. Así, los avances en ciencia siempre son provisorios y por tanto, pasibles de continuarse, completarse e incluso reinterpretarse ya que van surgiendo nuevas preguntas a medida que avanzamos en el conocimiento.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L. M Grisales

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available El artículo es una conceptualización de la pregunta didáctica desde el horizonte de la enseñanza universitaria. Para esto se emplea una estructura dialéctica que parte de la tesis que argumenta que la didáctica universitaria busca comunicar el sentido de los saberes en la enseñanza superior, y de la antítesis que argumenta que la pregunta busca comprender el sentido de las cosas en la investigación. De estos dos argumentos emerge la pregunta didáctica como aquella pregunta, que en tanto creación del docente, obedece a la reflexión pedagógica, didáctica y epistemológica del saber, y que abre espacios de conversación para comunicar y posibilitar la compresión del sentido de los saberes que se enseñan en la universidad, con el fin de introducir a los estudiantes en los métodos de construcción de dichos saberes. La pregunta didáctica al abrir espacios de conversación toma la forma de una secuencia de preguntas, preguntas que abren posibilidades de respuestas y de preguntas para establecer de este modo lógicas comunes entre los saberes y los estudiantes.

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available Definir la vida de modo satisfactorio ha sido, durante mucho tiempo, más una preocupación de los filósofos que de los científicos. Pero el carácter acuciante de la pregunta ¿qué es la vida? ha sido percibido también por científicos con inquietudes filosóficas. Uno de ellos fue el físico Erwin Schrödinger, que desplegó algunas intuiciones geniales. En su pequeño libro titulado justamente ¿Qué es la vida? (1944, la biología molecular y la eliminación de entropía por los seres vivos se proponen como los dos pilares de la «biología del futuro». Reduccionismo y holismo se afrontan en las página  de esta sugerente obra, sin desembocar en una síntesis clara. Pero el libro contiene un Epílogo inesperado en el que Schrödinger deja planear un tercer punto de la vista: el centrado en la existencia de la conciencia. En el artículo se sugiere que la Teoría de Sistemas, explicada y justificada por la termodinámica de procesos lejos del equilibrio, puede suministrar la principal pista que lleve a una concepción —y definición— aceptable de «vida». Siempre y cuando no se eluda la «tercera perspectiva» de Schrödinger, la que se refiere al vínculo entre vida y conciencia; una perspectiva fundamental también para Teilhard, y que se halla en el centro de la filosofía de Whitehead.

    Full Text Available La miastenia gravis juvenil (MGJ es un trastorno crónico auto inmune en el cual existen anticuerpos séricos que al unirse a los receptores de acetilcolin nicotínicos de la membrana muscular de la placa motora alteran la transmisión neuromuscular. El resultado es fatiga muscular precoz con progresión a la parálisis durante estados de contracción muscular iterativos (movimientos o sostenidos (posturas y más raramente parálisis permanente durante el reposo. Los músculos inervados por los nervios craneales, especialmente los extraoculares y elevadores de los párpados, tienen más tendencia a la debilidad muscular persistente que los inervados por otros pares craneales y las extremidades. Las formas clínicas de presentación son generalizadas, oculares y respiratorias. El diagnóstico se sospecha mediante la anamnesia, la fatiga anormal se comprueba mediante el examen físico y la estimulación eléctrica iterativa del nervio que inerva al músculo afectado pero no paralizado. Se corrobora mediante la administración de inhibidores de la acetilcolin esterasa (IACE que al aumentar la cantidad de acetilcolin en la hendidura sináptica, corrigen la fatiga o la debilidad muscular transitoriamente. Se hace el diagnóstico de certeza mediante la demostración sérica de anticuerpos contra los receptores de acetilcolin (ACRA. El tratamiento es a largo plazo sintomático con IACE y etiopatogénico con inmunosupresores, plasmaféresis, gamma globulina endovenosa y timectomía. El curso es crónico. La remisión espontánea o después de tratamiento sintomático o etiopatogénico ocurre entre 1-10 años respectivamente.

    2012-05-01

    Early juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is important to recognize as timely diagnosis and treatment improves prognosis. It is a misconception that complications of JIA arise only from long-standing disease and that children will outgrow it. Early aggressive treatment is the paradigm as early disease activity has long-term consequences. There are predictors of persistent disease and joint erosions that may identify patients at higher risk. Control of disease activity within the first 6 months of onset confers improved clinical course and outcomes. The treatment perspective is thus one of early aggressive treatment for induction of disease control and ultimately remission. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  9. Mental Illness and Juvenile Offenders

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lee A. Underwood

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Within the past decade, reliance on the juvenile justice system to meet the needs of juvenile offenders with mental health concerns has increased. Due to this tendency, research has been conducted on the effectiveness of various intervention and treatment programs/approaches with varied success. Recent literature suggests that because of interrelated problems involved for youth in the juvenile justice system with mental health issues, a dynamic system of care that extends beyond mere treatment within the juvenile justice system is the most promising. The authors provide a brief overview of the extent to which delinquency and mental illness co-occur; why treatment for these individuals requires a system of care; intervention models; and the juvenile justice systems role in providing mental health services to delinquent youth. Current and future advancements and implications for practitioners are provided.

    Full Text Available The need for punishment of juveniles occurred from the time when there was no clear line separating them from the adult criminal population. At the same time, the evolution of the juvenile punishment is not in itself involve substantial changes to their criminal status. On the contrary, the status of minors in society did not show serious differences regarding the status of young adults, as well as the adult elderly. On the other hand, on the ground of their punishment is recorded deviations that go in the direction of application of mild corporal punishment. Closing the minor was performed in a physically separate parts of the general penal institutions with the use of a lower degree of restrictions while serving juvenile prison. Due to the different treatment of minors during the evolution of their criminal status leads to their different treatment in comparative law. That is why we are witnessing the existence of numerous differences in the juvenile punishment in some countries in the world. On the European continent there is a wide range of different legal solutions when it comes to punishing juveniles. There are considerable differences in the procedure pronouncing juvenile prison and in particular penal treatment of juveniles in penitentiary institutions. For these reasons, the author has decided to show the basic statutory provisions in the part that relates to the issue of punishment of minors in the legislation of individual countries.

    2017-11-01

    Full Text Available Breast masses in children, though rare, present a difficult clinical challenge as they can represent a wide variety of entities from benign fibroadenomas to phyllodes tumors. Rapidly growing or recurrent masses can be particularly concerning to patients, families and physicians alike. Clinical examination and conventional imaging modalities are not efficacious in distinguishing between different tumor types and surgical excision is often recommended for both final diagnosis and for treatment of large or rapidly growing masses. While surgical excision can result in significant long-term deformity of the breast there are some surgical techniques that can be used to limit deformity and/or aid in future reconstruction. Here we present a case of recurrent giant juvenile fibroadenoma with a review of the clinical presentation, diagnostic tools and treatment options.

    Full Text Available Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA is the most chronic musculoskeletal disease of pediatric population. The chronic course of disease has a great impact on oral health. Temporomandibular joint is involved in JIA causing limited mouth opening with progressive open bite, retrognathia, microgenia and bird like appearance. Joints of upper and lower extremities are also involved. Effect on upper limb function leads to difficulty with fine motor movements required for brushing and flossing. This increases incidence of caries and periodontal disease in children. The cause of JIA is still poorly understood and none of the available drugs for JIA can cure the disease. However, prognosis has improved as a result of progress in disease classification and management. The dental practitioner should be familiar with the symptoms and oral manifestations of JIA to help manage as multidisciplinary management is essential.

  18. [Juvenile myasthenia gravis].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Papazian, Oscar; Alfonso, Israel

    2009-01-01

    Juvenile myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune disorder which occurs when serum antibodies combine with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the muscle membrane of the motor endplate imparing the neuromuscular transmission. It results in early muscle fatigability with progression to a complete paralysis during repetitive muscle contraction (movements) or steady muscle contraction (postures), and less common persistent paralysis at rest. The cranial nerves, mainly the one innervating the extraoccular and palpebral levator, are the most susceptible to permanent weakness and paralysis at rest. Initial clinical presentations are generalized, ocular and respiratory forms. The diagnosis is suspected through medical history of abnormal fatigability and corroborated by physical examination, repetitive nerve stimulation of an affected but not complete paralyzed muscle, correction of fatigability by the intravenous administration of acetylcholine esterase inhibitors, and by the presence of serum acetylcholine receptors antibodies (ACRA). The long term treatment is symptomatic (acetylcholine inhibitors) and etiopathogenic (immunosupresor drugs, plasmapheresis, intravenous gamma globulin and thymectomy. Spontaneous or post symptomatic and etiopathogenic treatment remissions occur from 1 to 10 years. Fatality is rare but children are at high risk during myasthenia crisis.

    Full Text Available Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA is the most common rheumatic condition in children. JRA is defined as persistent arthritis in 1 or more joints for at least 6 weeks, with the onset before age 16 years. The etiology of JRA is unknown. Antigen activated CD4+ T cell stimulate monocytes, macrophages, and synovial fibroblasts to produce the cytokines Interleukin-1 (IL-1, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor ? (TNF-? and to secrete matrix metalloproteinases, which lead to chronic inflammation due to infiltration of inflammatory cell, angiogenesis, destruction of cartilage and bone with pannus formation. The 3 major subtypes of JRA are based on the symptoms at disease onset and are designated systemic onset, pauciarticular onset, and polyarticular onset. For all patients, the goals of therapy are to decrease chronic joint pain and suppress the inflammatory process. Poor prognostic have been observed in patients with polyarticular onset, rheumatoid factor, persistent morning stiffness, tenosynovitis, involvement of the small joints, rapid appearance of erosions, active late onset childhood, subcutaneous nodules, or antinuclear antibody.

    2012-08-07

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a generalised epilepsy with seizure onset in youth. The aim of this review is to present updated knowledge about the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of JME. The review is based on a judicious selection of original English language articles, meta-analyses, and reviews found in PubMed, and the authors' own experience with the patient group. Seizure onset occurs in adolescence. All have myoclonias, about 90 % have generalized tonic-clonic seizures, and one third have absences. Myoclonic jerks are frequently the debut symptom, while tonic-clonic seizures appear later on. Patients are particularly susceptible to seizures shortly after waking. It is important to ask specifically about myoclonias as most patients do not report jerks spontaneously. The electroencephalograms of 44-81 % of the patients show discharges of 4-6 Hz polyspike waves. Focal EEG abnormalities may be seen in about 30 %. When patients are treated with valproate and seizure-precipitating factors are avoided, especially sleep deprivation, about 80 % become seizure-free. Lamotrigine and levetiracetam are alternative therapies for women of childbearing age. Attempts to taper off the medication after several years of seizure freedom entail a high risk of seizure relapse. As there may be features of focal epilepsy in the seizure semiology and/or the EEGs, it may be difficult to diagnose JME. Thus, many patients are misdiagnosed as having a focal epilepsy and are given antiepileptic drugs that may aggravate the tendency to seizures.

  1. Si la videovigilancia es la respuesta, ¿cuál era la pregunta? Cámaras, seguridad y políticas urbanas

    Gemma Galdon-Clavell

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Las cámaras de videovigilancia llevan años proliferando en casi todo el mundo. Sin embargo, ni las evaluaciones existentes dan motivos que justifiquen este entusiasmo por las cámaras en la lucha contra la delincuencia, ni las imágenes grabadas han servido de forma determinante en la prevención o resolución de grandes delitos recientes. La pregunta que emerge, pues, es: ¿cómo es posible que la videovigilancia haya conseguido no solo imponerse sino seguir una trayectoria de expansión, mantener cifras de apoyo popular considerables y generar un consenso favorable inquebrantable entre los responsables políticos, las autoridades policiales y la población en general? A través del repaso a las propuestas académicas realizadas hasta ahora que vinculan la videovigilancia con procesos económicos, sociológicos y políticos más amplios, y con base en los trabajos existentes sobre la evolución de la proliferación de la videovigilancia en España, este artículo pone sobre la mesa, desde una perspectiva sociológica y politológica, la pregunta que nadie parece tener deseos de plantear: ¿por qué la videovigilancia?

  3. Forensic aspects of juvenile violence.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Haller, L H

    2000-10-01

    The juvenile justice system was created because it was recognized that youthful offenders needed to be managed differently from adults. They were to receive habilitation services instead of punishment. It is now more than a century since the creation of the first juvenile court. After 67 years, the US Supreme Court, in Kent v United States stated that the model was not working because juveniles in the criminal justice system received no treatment and they had no rights. Because the issue that had been appealed was the lack of rights (not lack of treatment), the Court mandated that juveniles, like adults, be given certain rights. The following year, in In re Gault, the Court expanded these rights. Subsequent Supreme Court cases have dealt with these kinds of issues--that is, whether juvenile offenders are entitled to the same rights as adults and subject to the same penalties. The Supreme Court has never heard a "right to treatment" case, which is the other part of the juvenile court system. Cases have been brought in lower courts (e.g., Nelson v. Heyne, 1972) alleging inadequate treatment services, but no national impact has resulted. Thus, in general, children in the juvenile court system do not have an enforceable right to treatment and can obtain only what services are available in their jurisdictions. The services often are woefully inadequate. Sentencing a youth to probation, with the requirement that he or she participate in counseling or mental health treatment, is meaningless if services are not available. Community-based, model programs that provide effective treatment do exist. They are, as yet, the rare exception rather than the norm and, therefore, are not available to most youthful offenders. Incarcerated juveniles, obviously, cannot avail themselves of community programs. Litigation to give these youth the same rights as adults in penal institutions is not the answer because incarcerated adults don't have a right to treatment, only a right to be free

    Full Text Available Why not cloning us is a relevant question for contemporary ethics. The question why not, when it refers to a technology (or to some of its applications, is the question for its moral limits. In other words, it is the question for the universal dangers that a technology entails or could entail in some of its applications. The sphere of the moral evaluation of a technology has to do with the public elimination of the possible harms that are inherent or supervenient to its utilisation. If we focus on the relevant normative questions of the justice sphere, it couldn´t be relevant to answer the question why, that is, why a person or a group of them would wish the technology was applied The question why is related to vital options and ways of create ourselves that needn´t be binding on someone nor are characteristic of the moral point of view. However, the suspicion of this article is the following: the specific character of contemporary technological innovation (of which cloning is a paradigmatic case stimulates and makes relevant the debate about the good (given the collective or global implications of the answers.

    Por qué no clonarnos es una pregunta relevante para la ética actual. El por qué no de una técnica -o de determinadas aplicaciones de la misma- es la pregunta por los límites morales. O, de otro modo, es la pregunta por los daños objetivos que ésta supone, o supondría en una determinada aplicación. El marco de evaluación moral de una técnica tiene que ver, pues, con la desestimación pública y universal de posibles daños inherentes o sobrevenibles a su uso. Circunscritas las cuestiones normativas relevantes al ámbito de la justicia, no parecería relevante clarificar cuál sea el por qué -o el por qué sí- un individuo o un conjunto de ellos buscarían la aplicación o puesta en marcha de una técnica. Ésta es la pregunta por opciones vitales y

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is an idiopathic, hereditary form of epilepsy. Although juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a well defined clinical syndrome, attempts at diagnosing it commonly fail. ETIOPATHOGENESIS: The exact cause of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy remains unknown. Clinical, morphological and metabolic data suggest a preferential role for frontal regions in this syndrome. Several major genes for juvenile myoclonic epilepsy have been identified, but these genes account for only a small proportions of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy cases, suggesting multifactorial or complex inheritance in most. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is characterized by the triad of myoclonic jerks on awakening (all patients), generalized tonic-clonic seizures (> 90% of patients) and typical absences (about one third of patients). Seizures have an age-related onset, circadian distribution and are frequently precipitated by sleep deprivation, fatigue and alcohol intake. Intelligence is normal. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy diagnosis is based upon clinical criteria and typical electroencephalographic findings (generalized pattern of spikes and/or polyspikes and waves). All other tests are normal. Both medical treatment and counselling are important in the management of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. Mono-therapy with valproate is the preferred treatment. Some of the newer antiepileptic drugs have been suggested as possible alternatives. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy has a good prognosis. Lifelong treatment is usually considered necessary in vast majority of patients due to the increased risk of relapse if treatment is discontinued. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a common, although under-diagnosed epileptic syndrome. The clinician should study the occurrence of myoclonic jerks and should consider atypical presentations.

  1. Juvenile morphology in baleen whale phylogeny.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tsai, Cheng-Hsiu; Fordyce, R Ewan

    2014-09-01

    Phylogenetic reconstructions are sensitive to the influence of ontogeny on morphology. Here, we use foetal/neonatal specimens of known species of living baleen whales (Cetacea: Mysticeti) to show how juvenile morphology of extant species affects phylogenetic placement of the species. In one clade (sei whale, Balaenopteridae), the juvenile is distant from the usual phylogenetic position of adults, but in the other clade (pygmy right whale, Cetotheriidae), the juvenile is close to the adult. Different heterochronic processes at work in the studied species have different influences on juvenile morphology and on phylogenetic placement. This study helps to understand the relationship between evolutionary processes and phylogenetic patterns in baleen whale evolution and, more in general, between phylogeny and ontogeny; likewise, this study provides a proxy how to interpret the phylogeny when fossils that are immature individuals are included. Juvenile individuals in the peramorphic acceleration clades would produce misleading phylogenies, whereas juvenile individuals in the paedomorphic neoteny clades should still provide reliable phylogenetic signals.

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo indagaremos en las distintas respuestas que se han dado desde dos grandes paradigmas del pensamiento occidental a la pregunta por el cambio social. En particular, nos interesa rastrear de qué manera las diversas variantes de la perspectiva estructuralista y de la perspectiva historicista han conceptualizado el cambio social, especialmente en términos de contradicción, de conflicto y de crisis. Dentro de la perspectiva estructuralista recorreremos los aportes clásicos de Chalmers Johnson y Gino Germani, para luego pasar a algunos referentes contemporáneos como Theda Skocpol, Peter Evans y Fred Block; dentro de la perspectiva historicista, nos detendremos en los aportes clásicos de Karl Marx y luego en dos referentes del siglo xx como Beverly Silver y Norbert Elias. Hacia el final del trabajo, veremos, entre otras cosas, cómo esta primera división en paradigmas resulta en cierta medida, y para el caso entre manos, obsoleta.

    Full Text Available The article is devoted to the results of empirical studies of the experiences of guilt of juvenile offenders in the context of juvenile justice where a minor appears as the subject of legal relations. Restorative approach of juvenile justice is based on an admission of guilt to the victim. In connection with it, the research of features of the guilt of minors who have committed an offence and the conditions for the development of the subjectivity will enhance understanding of the possibilities of restorative juvenile justice system in the prevention of juvenile delinquency.Thus, the results of empirical research presented in the article are important for determining of the psychological bases of realization of rehabilitation programs in the context of juvenile justice. In particular, the results are important for the organization and conduct of psychological work to overcome the psychological barriers in the behavior of juveniles having inherently maladaptive guilt and destructive psychological defense mechanisms.

The investigation distributes 100 questionnaires among people who are involved with crime and analyzes their feedbacks. There are five hypotheses in our survey and we look to see whether family conditions, religion, economical conditions, media and physical and psychological characteristics play important role on juvenile delinquency in Iranian society. The results shows that while family conditions, physical and psychological characteristics play important role on juvenile delinquency, other factors do not statistically have any impact on juvenile delinquency. The study suggests that a better family condition could help reduce juvenile delinquency and people could guide their children through better consultations.

  4. Genetic heterogeneity in juvenile NCL

    1994-09-01

    The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) are a group of related lysosomal storage diseases classified according to the age of onset, clinical syndrome, and pathology. The clinical syndromes include myoclonus, visual failure, progressive dementia, ataxia and generalized tonic clonic seizures in varying combinations depending on the age of onset and pathology. The mode of inheritance is autosomal recessive in most cases, except for several families with the adult form (Kufs` disease) which have autosomal dominant inheritance. Linkage for the infantile (Halatia-Santavuori) form (CLN1), characterized ultrastructurally by lysosomal granular osmiophilic deposits (GROD), has been demonstrated with markers on chromosome lp, while the gene for the typical juvenile (Spielmeyer-Vogt) form (CLN3), characterized by fingerprint-profile inclusions, has been linked to chromosome 16p. The gene locations of the late infantile (Jansky-Bielschowsky) and adult (Kufs` disease) forms are unknown, although it has recently been shown that the late infantile form does not link to chromosome 16p. We describe three siblings, including a pair of monozygotic twins, with juvenile onset NCL with GROD in whom linkage to the CLN3 region of chromsome 16p has been excluded. This would suggest that there is genetic heterogeneity not only among the different clinical syndromes, but also among identical clinical syndromes with different ultrastructural characteristics. Preliminary studies of linkage to chromosome 1p employing the microsatellite marker HY-TM1 have been uninformative. Further studies with other chromosome 1 markers are underway.

Esos fundamentos gravitarán sobre dos de los apartados más destacados de la secuencia didáctica tales como son las metodologías de enseñanza-aprendizaje y el sistema de evaluación, incluidas ambas en la pauta “cuasi contractual” del decurso académico diario que representa la guía docente.Como síntoma de ello, en el subtítulo se apuntan los dos extremos más importantes de la transformación docente. Por un lado, la clase magistral representa el paradigma de un sistema universitario de marcado ascendente unidireccional, y, por otro, la pregunta socrática simboliza la interacción entre el alumno y el profesor en la que éste, con sus cuestiones, ayuda al discente en su proceso de aprendizaje y lo saca de la ausencia de la conocimiento en un área en la que tradicionalmente el fundamento metodológico se ha centrado en el docente."

  8. Preguntas pendientes a la Descentralización: ¿Está conduciendo hacia la igualdad de género?

    2007-02-01

    Full Text Available LA AUTORA DEL ARTÍCULO INDAGA EN LA DIMENSIÓN POLÍTICA DE LA Descentralización, estableciendo vínculos con el orden social de género. Indica que, a pesar que históricamente las mujeres han estado vinculadas con los servicios municipales y participan activamente en organizaciones locales, éstas no son ciudadanas plenas, a juzgar por la manera en que participan en instancias de decisión: a medida que aumenta el poder, disminuye su participación. Argumenta que están infrarrepresentadas en los cargos de alcaldes (as, y carecen del principio de individualidad (principal característica de los miembros de la polis. Estos elementos guardan relación con las preguntas políticas pendientes a la Descentralización. Son interrogantes que cuestionan la naturaleza del municipio y del gobierno local: no por ser más cercanos a la población son más democráticos. De igual forma, para la autora, la Descentralización se constituye en una oportunidad para la ciudadanía femenina. Las institucionalidades locales emergentes deben de asumir el principio de igualdad, de lo contrario, el protagonismo de las mujeres se verá invisibilizado –como de antaño– en concepciones teóricas-metodológicas de carácter androcéntrico que han marcado el desarrollo en general y el local en particular.

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta las distintas estrategias que ha buscado el Grupo de Investigación en Gestión y Diseño de Vivienda (GIV, del Departamento de Arquitectura de la Universidad de los Andes, para comprender y evidenciar el problema percibido sobre la calidad de la vivienda, particularmente de los sectores más pobres de la población colombiana. El enfoque se hace desde el ámbito académico con el Laboratorio de Vivienda y desde el escenario de la relación universidad-empresa según convenio de asociación con Prodesa S. A. La alerta se inicia con la preocupación por la condición de la vivienda de interés social (VIS en Bogotá: lotes estrechos, viviendas pequeñas con ubicación urbana de extrema periferia, para ir complejizando la mirada a través de preguntas como: ¿Qué facilidades urbanas tiene la ciudad en la que se construye la VIS? ¿Qué tipo de urbanizaciones o agrupaciones se están proponiendo? ¿Cuál es la espacialidad de la vivienda que se ofrece? Interesa explorar si es factible medir la calidad de la vivienda VIS, y si lo es, con qué indicadores y valoraciones se debe hacer. El artículo expone las razones de esta búsqueda, los instrumentos técnicos planteados para acercarse a las respuestas, y el análisis de los resultados y retos de la que hemos llamado “primera fase de observación”.

    Full Text Available Fibromyalgia syndrome (FM belongs to soft tissue pain syndromes of unknown cause, also referred to as “soft tissue rheumatism”. It is characterized by chronic widespread pain as well as additional symptoms such as fatigue, sleep and mood disturbance and cognitive problems. There is more and more data showing that this condition may start at a young age or even in childhood, adversely affecting development processes and resulting in dysfunctional social and family relationships. Because of the multifaceted character of fibromyalgia the efficient treatment of this disorder can be difficult and requires comprehensive care. This work reviews most recommended procedures used in integrated treatment programmes for juvenile fibromyalgia syndrome (JFM.

    2012-07-01

    Control of disease activity and recovery of function are major issues in the treatment of children and adolescents suffering from juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Functional therapies including physiotherapy are important components in the multidisciplinary teamwork and each phase of the disease requires different strategies. While in the active phase of the disease pain alleviation is the main focus, the inactive phase requires strategies for improving motility and function. During remission the aim is to regain general fitness by sports activities. These phase adapted strategies must be individually designed and usually require a combination of different measures including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, massage as well as other physical procedures and sport therapy. There are only few controlled studies investigating the effectiveness of physical therapies in JIA and many strategies are derived from long-standing experience. New results from physiology and sport sciences have contributed to the development in recent years. This report summarizes the basics and main strategies of physical therapy in JIA.

  19. Are antipredator behaviours of hatchery Salmo salar juveniles similar to wild juveniles?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Salvanes, A G V

    2017-05-01

    This study explores how antipredator behaviour of juvenile Atlantic salmon Salmo salar developed during conventional hatchery rearing of eggs from wild brood stock, compared with the behaviour of wild-caught juveniles from the same population. Juveniles aged 1+ years were tested in two unfamiliar environments; in one S. salar were presented with simulated predator attacks and in the other they were given the opportunity to explore an open-field arena. No difference was found in their spontaneous escape responses or ventilation rate (reflex responses) after simulated predator attacks. Hatchery-reared juveniles were more risk-prone in their behaviours than wild-caught individuals. Hatchery juveniles stayed less time in association with shelter. In the open-field arena, hatchery juveniles were more active than wild juveniles. Hatchery juveniles were also immobile for less time and spent a shorter amount of time than wild juveniles in the fringe of the open-field arena. Salmo salar size had no effect on the observed behaviour. Overall, this study provides empirical evidence that one generation of hatchery rearing does not change reflex responses associated with threats, whereas antipredator behaviour, typically associated with prior experience, was less developed in hatchery-reared than in wild individuals. © 2017 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available The article presents the results of a preliminary empirical study aimed to identify features of the semantic sphere of adolescents who have committed illegal, including aggressive acts. The study included 50 male juveniles aged of 16 - 17 years. The first group consisted of adolescents convicted of aggressive and violent crimes; the second – of property socially dangerous acts (SDA. It is shown that evaluation of such adolescents is generally categorical and polar, the semantic field is subdifferentiable, less hierarchic, and has not enough realistic structure of meanings. Developed structure of motives and meanings is the basis of voluntary regulation of socially significant behavior. Thus, assessing the semantic sphere of juvenile offenders we can highlight its characteristics as risk factors of unlawful behavior, as well as the resource side, that will contribute to addressing issues of prevention and correction of unlawful behavior. Key words: juvenile offenders, semantic field of juvenile offenders, unlawful behavior.

    Full Text Available Se abordan las razones que motivan que los resultados de la investigación realizada sobre poblaciones hospitalarias en ocasiones no sea consistente con la practicada en la comunidad. En la base de las diferencias se encuentran el proceso de selección de los pacientes y la recogida de datos por la historia clínica (su falta de uniformidad y el tratamiento de los «no consta». Se estructura la razón de las discrepancias en función del tipo de pregunta de investigación: frecuencia, diagnóstico, etiología, pronóstico y tratamiento-prevención. Es el proceso de selección el que justifica las diferencias en frecuencia y pronóstico. En relación con el diagnóstico, las discrepancias se deben a la prevalencia de la enfermedad. En el estudio de asociaciones de causalidad ciertos errores son más frecuentes en los estudios hospitalarios, como los sesgos de detección, protopático (ambos exageran la asociación, y el de inclusión (reduce la asociación. Se analizan ejemplos publicados de cada una de ellas. En relación con el tratamiento-prevención, los problemas son sobre todo de validez externa, ya que la metodología del ensayo clínico previene las amenazas a la validez interna; se analiza con un ejemplo de valoración de la eficacia vacunal en pacientes y población sana. La frecuencia de citación de los sesgos se midió en una búsqueda en Medline; en los estudios hospitalarios se mencionó con más frecuencia el sesgo de detección ([RR] = 2,71; intervalo de confianza [IC] del 95%, 1,69-4,37 y el sesgo de confusión por indicación (RR = 1,76; IC del 95%, 0,90-3,42. Por último, se da una serie de recomendaciones destinadas a aumentar la validez de los estudios realizados en el medio hospitalario.

    A 1994 federal law bans possession of handguns by persons under 18 years of age. Also in 1994, 11 states passed their own juvenile gun possession bans. Eighteen states had previously passed bans, 15 of them between 1975 and 1993. These laws were intended to reduce homicides, but arguments can be made that they have no effect on or that they even increase the homicide rate. This paper estimates the laws' impacts on various crime measures, primarily juvenile gun homicide victimizations and suic...

    Full Text Available Este estudio pone a prueba un modelo ecológico como marco teórico explicativo de la antisocialidad juvenil. 204 jóvenes mexicanos que cursaban la educación secundaria o preparatoria contestaron un cuestionario con preguntas acerca de la violencia intrafamiliar, su conducta antisocial, la ingesta de alcohol de sus madres, los problemas de conducta escolar, algunas características del ambiente familiar, escolar y del barrio y las actitudes acerca de la violencia. Los datos fueron analizados a través de un modelo estructural en el cual las variables investigadas constituyeron factores e índices que representaban a los niveles de la teoría ecológica. Los resultados mostraron que el microsistema tuvo un efecto directo en la conducta antisocial de los menores, el exosistema mostró un efecto también directo en el microsistema y por lo tanto uno indirecto en la conducta antisocial de los menores, y el macrosistema tuvo un efecto directo en el exosistema y uno indirecto en la antisocialidad de los jóvenes. Lo anterior parece respaldar el modelo ecológico, como explicación coherente de la conducta antisocial en los menores.The aim of this research was to test an ecological model as explanation of juvenile delinquency. 204 Mexican students of junior and high school answered a questionnaire containing questions about family violence, antisocial behavior, child abuse, mother and father alcohol consumption, as well as some family, school, and neighborhood environmental characteristics.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available Escuchar, leer y escribir simultáneamente es extremadamente difícil, especialmente en una lengua extranjera (Underwood, 1989. Una actividad de comprensión audiovisual puede serlo todavía más. Por una parte, existe en un conflicto de atención visual entre ver la imagen y completar una actividad escrita. Por otra parte, prestar atención a la imagen, al audio, y a la tarea simultáneamente puede llevar a la saturación de la memoria de trabajo (Vandergrift y Goh, 2012. Este trabajo forma parte de una investigación mayor que explora el uso de preguntas de comprensión audiovisual integradas en la imagen como subtítulos y sincronizadas con los fragmentos relevantes.

    Full Text Available ResumenEl término «delincuencia juvenil» fue acuñado en Inglaterra en el año 1815, “Se entiende por delincuencia juvenil el conjunto de delitos, contravenciones o comportamientos socialmente reprochables, que cometen las personas consideradas como jóvenes por la ley”1 . Cada Estado está sujeto a su propio sistema jurídico, para algunos es delincuente juvenil el adolescente que comete acciones sancionadas por la ley sin importar su gravedad, otros Estados sólo consideran como delincuente juvenil al joven que comete un acto delictivo grave.El fenómeno de la delincuencia juvenil es algo que se inscribe en los espacios de una sociedad en la cual su estructura material, y su formación social consecuente, se halla en una profunda crisis. Que jóvenes conformen bandas de delincuencia organizada nos está indicando que son el resultado de la misma criminalidad general que se ha apoderado de la sociedad en la perspectiva de lograr sobrevivir materialmente. El capitalismo no es sólo acumulación de riqueza sino concentración de la misma en muy pocas manos; y todo el sistema institucional y legal tiende a favorecer ese fenómeno porque éste constituye la supra estructura del modo de producción capitalista. Así como los adultos se organizan para delinquir, lo hacen los niños y los jóvenes a partir de una edad en la cual pueden percibir que la sociedad no es sana y no tienen porvenir humano en ella. Abandonados y sujetos a la violencia que engendra el sistema, ellos simplemente responden en una manifestación de reflejos condicionados que sostienen la sobrevivencia en forma instintiva; “los niños no saben de normas legales sino de formas de sobrevivir a semejante situación; el instinto de sobrevivencia no tiene edades ni la normatividad puede incidir en él”.Palabras ClavesDelincuencia juvenil, Jóvenes, Criminalidad, Familia, Factores, Acto delictivo, Responsabilidad Penal.AbstractThe term “juvenile delinquency” was coined in

    2012-04-01

    Alexander disease is a rare leukodystrophy that most often presents in infancy but also includes neonatal, juvenile, and adult variants. Juvenile Alexander disease presents primarily with bulbar symptoms between 2 and 12 years of age. The diagnosis is often suggested by the clinical course and brain magnetic resonance image pattern and then confirmed by the presence of a mutation in the glial fibrillary acidic protein gene. A young girl presented with globus sensation and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed abnormalities mainly involving white matter tracts of the medulla oblongata and cerebellum. The presence of a mutation in the glial fibrillary acidic protein gene confirmed the diagnosis of juvenile Alexander disease. A high index of clinical suspicion is necessary for the diagnosis of late-onset presentations of Alexander disease.

  16. Juvenile Fibromyalgia: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Treatment.

    2015-06-01

    A 14-year-old boy presented with months of severe widespread musculoskeletal pain. He was profoundly fatigued and unable to attend school. Laboratory evaluation, including complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, inflammatory markers, and thyroid function, was unrevealing. Physical examination was also normal except for multiple tender points. The patient was diagnosed with juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome and referred for multidisciplinary treatment including physical therapy, exercise, and counseling, and his daily functioning gradually improves. Juvenile fibromyalgia is a complex syndrome that often severely limits patients' activities and can impede normal adolescent development. Effective treatment requires an understanding of the biologic, psychologic, and social factors contributing to the perpetuation of chronic pain. The author reviews the diagnostic criteria, pathophysiology, and treatment of juvenile fibromyalgia. Medications, particularly antidepressants and anticonvulsants, can be useful adjuncts to therapy. However, multimodal pain management including intensive physical therapy, exercise, counseling, and sleep hygiene is most effective in treating fibromyalgia. Copyright 2015, SLACK Incorporated.

  17. Juvenile age estimation from facial images.

    Ferguson, Eilidh; Wilkinson, Caroline

    2017-01-01

    Age determination from images can be of vital importance, particularly in cases involving suspected child sexual abuse (CSA). It is imperative to determine if an individual depicted in such an image is indeed a child, with a more concise age often sought, as this may affect the severity of offender sentencing. The aims of this study were to establish the accuracy of visual age estimation of the juvenile face in children aged between 0 and 16years and to determine if varying levels of exposure to children affected an individual's ability to assess age from the face. An online questionnaire consisting of 30 juvenile face images was created using SurveyMonkey®. The overall results suggested poor accuracy for visual age estimation of juvenile faces. The age, sex, occupation and number of children of the participants did not affect the ability to estimate age from facial images. Similarly, the sex and age of the juvenile faces did not appear to affect the accuracy of age estimation. When specific age groups are considered, sex may have an influence on age estimation, with female faces being aged more accurately in the younger age groups and male faces more accurate after the age of 11years, however this is based on a small sample. This study suggests that the accuracy of juvenile age estimation from the face alone is poor using simple visual assessment of images. Further research is required to determine exactly how age is assessed from a facial image, if there are indicators, or features in particular that lead to over- or under-estimation of juvenile age.

  19. Moulting tail feathers in a juvenile oviraptorisaur.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Prum, Richard O

    2010-11-04

    Xu et al. describe the extraordinarily preserved feathers from two subadults of the oviraptorisaur Similicaudipteryx from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning, China. The preserved tail feathers of the juvenile specimen (STM4.1) show a morphology not previously observed in any fossil feathers. The tail feathers of an older, immature specimen (STM22-6) show a typical closed pennaceous structure with a prominent, planar vane. I propose that the feathers of the tail of the juvenile specimen are not a specialized feather generation, but fossilized 'pin feathers' or developing feather germs.

  20. Diet alters species recognition in juvenile toads.

    Pfennig, Karin S; Rodriguez Moncalvo, Verónica G; Burmeister, Sabrina S

    2013-10-23

    Whether environmental effects during juvenile development can alter the ontogeny of adult mating behaviour remains largely unexplored. We evaluated the effect of diet on the early expression of conspecific recognition in spadefoot toads, Spea bombifrons. We found that juvenile toads display phonotaxis behaviour six weeks post-metamorphosis. However, preference for conspecifics versus heterospecifics emerged later and was diet dependent. Thus, the environment can affect the early development of species recognition in a way that might alter adult behaviour. Evaluating such effects is important for understanding variation in hybridization between species and the nature of species boundaries.

    Full Text Available La familia tradicional ha sido situada como fuente primordial de los procesos de socialización y ha sido ubicada como un factor de alta incidencia en diversas problemáticas juveniles; sin embargo, esta forma de vinculación familiar ha sufrido fuertes transformaciones que han afectado el proceso de socialización de sus miembros, en especial de los más jóvenes, el cual se ha alterado, también, por el desarrollo de las nuevas tecnologías de la información y las comunicaciones. Bajo estas transformaciones se desarrollan y presentan las expectativas que tiene la sociedad sobre los jóvenes y se reconoce que la concepción de la juventud y lo juvenil es, sobre todo, una construcción social. Finalmente, se introduce la necesidad de reconocer los efectos de estos asuntos en la construcción del bienestar subjetivo y psicológico de los jóvenes. El artículo corresponde a una revisión de estado del arte sobre las categorías relacionadas con estos temas, en investigaciones realizadas en Iberoamérica y Colombia durante los últimos años, dando lugar con ello a la pregunta por la manera como la constitución de referentes se articula al bienestar subjetivo y al proceso de socialización de los jóvenes.

    2013-07-01

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) has been the subject of intensive research over the past 25years. It was discovered stepwise in Switzerland and France in the 19th century, adequately described in Germany and Uruguay in the 1950s, and rediscovered in North America in the early 1980s. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy represents the most common idiopathic epilepsy syndrome. As a tribute to the primary author of the first extensive and detailed clinical description of JME, it is also called the Janz syndrome. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is an archetypical epileptic syndrome, with a fairly homogenous presentation and a still largely unknown etiology. Its clinical spectrum now includes cognitive and psychiatric symptoms as significant copathologies, and the elucidation of its probably multiple genetic mechanisms is an ongoing process. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy may not qualify as a "benign" epilepsy, but seizures in most patients can be managed adequately and patients will not suffer severe limitations in their lifetime expectations.

  5. Identifying and classifying juvenile stalking behavior.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Evans, Thomas M; Reid Meloy, J

    2011-01-01

    Despite the growing research in the area of stalking, the focus has been on adults who engage in this behavior. Unfortunately, almost no studies investigate the prevalence of this behavior in adolescents. Two cases are presented demonstrating not only that stalking occurs during the period of adolescence, but also that there is a significant difference in the motivation underlying this behavior that can be classified similarly to that of adult stalkers. Further, a suggested classification based on these two cases as well as our experience with other juveniles who have exhibited stalking behaviors is proposed. The first case involves a narcissistic youth who also possesses psychopathic traits, while the second involves a lonely, severely socially awkward teen. Juvenile stalking is a societal problem that has not yet garnered the attention it deserves, and all systems that deal with juvenile delinquency (juvenile court, law enforcement, and mental health personnel) as well as the school system must be educated to the prevalence and severity of this yet-to-be-recognized problem. © 2010 American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

  8. Evaluating juvenile detainees' Miranda misconceptions: The discriminant validity of the Juvenile Miranda Quiz.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sharf, Allyson J; Rogers, Richard; Williams, Margot M; Drogin, Eric Y

    2017-05-01

    Most juvenile arrestees in custodial settings waive their Miranda rights almost immediately, and many then provide incriminating statements, if not outright confessions. Forensic practitioners are then asked to provide retrospective determinations regarding whether these waivers were effectuated knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently. At present, the forensic assessment instrument for juvenile Miranda issues consists of the Miranda Rights Comprehension Instruments (MRCI)-which as its name implies-focuses mostly on Miranda comprehension with a de-emphasis of Miranda reasoning. In partially addressing this gap, the current study investigated the clinical utility of the Juvenile Miranda Quiz (JMQ) for evaluating key Miranda misconceptions, a critically important component of Miranda reasoning. Using data from 201 juvenile detainees, we evaluated the JMQ's discriminability with regards to cognitive variables and MRCI scales. Many moderate effect sizes in the predicted direction were found for the JMQ Primary Total and Juvenile Total scores. Finally, these detainees were tested using a mock crime scenario with a representative Miranda warning plus a brief interrogation to evaluate whether they would waive their rights, and if so, whether they would confess. Using Miranda measures to predict problematic outcomes (i.e., impaired waivers followed by confessions), the JMQ Juvenile Total proved the most successful. These findings are discussed within the context of the "intelligent" prong of Miranda waivers. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved).

    Juvenile localized scleroderma comprises a group of autoimmune conditions often characterized clinically by an area of skin hardening. In addition to superficial changes in the skin and subcutaneous tissues, juvenile localized scleroderma may involve the deep soft tissues, bones and joints, possibly resulting in functional impairment and pain in addition to cosmetic changes. There is literature documenting the spectrum of findings for deep involvement of localized scleroderma (fascia, muscles, tendons, bones and joints) in adults, but there is limited literature for the condition in children. We aimed to document the spectrum of musculoskeletal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of both superficial and deep juvenile localized scleroderma involvement in children and to evaluate the utility of various MRI sequences for detecting those findings. Two radiologists retrospectively evaluated 20 MRI studies of the extremities in 14 children with juvenile localized scleroderma. Each imaging sequence was also given a subjective score of 0 (not useful), 1 (somewhat useful) or 2 (most useful for detecting the findings). Deep tissue involvement was detected in 65% of the imaged extremities. Fascial thickening and enhancement were seen in 50% of imaged extremities. Axial T1, axial T1 fat-suppressed (FS) contrast-enhanced and axial fluid-sensitive sequences were rated most useful. Fascial thickening and enhancement were the most commonly encountered deep tissue findings in extremity MRIs of children with juvenile localized scleroderma. Because abnormalities of the skin, subcutaneous tissues and fascia tend to run longitudinally in an affected limb, axial T1, axial fluid-sensitive and axial T1-FS contrast-enhanced sequences should be included in the imaging protocol.

    2017-10-01

    The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies of childhood consist of a heterogeneous group of autoimmune diseases characterised by proximal muscle weakness and pathognomonic skin rashes. The overall prognosis of juvenile myositis has improved significantly over recent years, but the long-term outcome differs substantially from patient to patient, suggestive of distinct clinical phenotypes with variable responses to treatment. High doses of corticosteroids remain the cornerstone of therapy along with other immunosuppressant therapies depending on disease severity and response. The advent of biological drugs has revolutionised the management of various paediatric rheumatologic diseases, including inflammatory myopathies. There are few data from randomised controlled trials to guide management decisions; thus, several algorithms for the treatment of juvenile myositis have been developed using international expert opinion. The general treatment goals now include elimination of active disease and normalisation of physical function, so as to preserve normal growth and development, and to prevent long-term damage and deformities. This review summarises the newer and possible future therapies of juvenile inflammatory myopathies, including evidence supporting their efficacy and safety.

    Chronotherapeutic treatments, such as bright light therapy, sleep deprivation and sleep phase advance have successfully been established for the treatment of adults with seasonal and major depression. Today, sleep deprivation is supposed to be the fastest acting antidepressant we know of. Combined with bright light therapy, the antidepressive effect can be sustained. Notwithstanding, the effect of sleep deprivation and bright light therapy has not yet been studied in adolescents suffering from juvenile depression. However, because of its growing prevalence rates and the insufficient outcomes of established treatments, such as medication and psychotherapy, alternative treatments of juvenile depression are urgently needed. Furthermore, a high percentage of patients suffer from sleep disorders. Along with their large positive impact on sleep patterns and antidepressive effects, chronotherapeutics are thought to be powerful interventions for patients with juvenile depression. The present study investigates the additional benefit of sleep deprivation combined with bright light therapy, as compared to mere bright light therapy. We hypothesize that both therapies have a positive impact on depressive symptoms and sleep parameters, but that a combined therapy enhances and sustains outcomes. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical presentation a group of patients with juvenile onset of Huntington disease. METHOD: All patients were interviewed following a structured clinical questioner. Patients were genotyped for the trinucleotide cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG repeat in the Huntington Disease gene. High resolution brain MRI was performed in all patients. RESULTS: We identified 4 patients with juvenile onset of disease among 50 patients with Huntington disease followed prospectively in our Neurogenetics clinic. Age at onset varied from 3 to 13 years, there were 2 boys, and 3 patients had a paternal inheritance of the disease. Expanded Huntington disease allele sizes varied from 41 to 69 trinucleotide repeats. The early onset patients presented with rigidity, bradykinesia, dystonia, dysarthria, seizures and ataxia. MRI showed severe volume loss of caudate and putamen nuclei (p=0.001 and reduced cerebral and cerebellum volumes (p=0.01. CONCLUSION: 8% of Huntington disease patients seen in our clinic had juvenile onset of the disease. They did not present with typical chorea as seen in adult onset Huntington disease. There was a predominance of rigidity and bradykinesia. Two other important clinical features were seizures and ataxia, which related with the imaging findings of early cortical atrophy and cerebellum volume loss.

    To reveal the accumulation profile of tetrodotoxin (TTX) in pufferfish Takifugu rubripes juveniles, we compared the localization of TTX in various tissues among wild juveniles and hatchery-reared juveniles with or without TTX administration using immunohistochemical technique with anti-TTX monoclonal antibody. Immuno-positive reaction was observed in hepatic tissue, basal cell of skin and olfactory, olfactory epithelium, optic nerve and brain (optic tectum, cerebellum, medulla oblongata) of wild juveniles (body length: BL, 4.7-9.4 cm). TTX was detected in the same tissues as wild juveniles and epithelial cell layer of intestine of hatchery-reared juveniles (BL, 5.0-5.3 cm) to which TTX was orally administrated. No positive reaction was observed from the tissues of hatchery-reared juveniles without TTX administration. These results suggest that orally administrated TTX to the non-toxic cultured juveniles is accumulated in the same manner of wild juveniles. In addition, our study revealed that pufferfish accumulates TTX in the central nervous system. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Suicidality among adolescents is a common focus of clinical attention. In spite of links to disruptive behaviors and other types of psychopathology, it is not clear whether other factors commonly associated with suicide, such as personality and parenting, predict suicidality over and above psychopathology. The purpose of the present study was to assess suicidal ideations and attempts and their relationship to psychopathology, violence exposure, personality traits and parental rearing in Russian male juvenile delinquents with conduct disorder (CD). Suicidality and psychopathology were assessed using a semi-structured psychiatric interview in 271 incarcerated male juvenile delinquents diagnosed with CD. Violence exposure, personality characteristics and perceived parental rearing were assessed via self-reports. Thirty-four percent of those diagnosed with CD (92 subjects) reported a lifetime history of either suicidal thoughts or attempts. Suicidal ideators and attempters did not differ significantly on any variable of interest, but both reported significantly higher rates of psychopathology and violence exposure than the non-suicidal group, as well as higher levels of harm avoidance, lower self-directedness, and higher rates of perceived negative parental rearing. Finally, even when controlling for the relationship with psychopathology, personality and perceived parental rearing factors showed significant associations with suicidality. Juvenile delinquents with CD have high rates of suicidal ideations and attempts, related to a wide spectrum of psychopathology and specific personality traits. These findings suggest that a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors create vulnerability to stressors, which under the influence of situational factors (e.g., repeated traumatization) may lead to suicidal thoughts and acts. Factors potentially contributing to vulnerability for suicidality should be identified when planning prevention and rehabilitation efforts for

    Full Text Available Background/Aim. Diabetes mellitus (DM is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia. The aim of this study was to explore the prognosis of patients with juvenile DM regarding diabetic eye complications, as well as the course of the diabetic eye disease related to the treatment undertaken. Methods. The study series involved 33 patients with juvenile DM during the period 1992-2007. The influence of the following factors on the course of the disease was estimated: age, the age of the disease onset, time when eye complications appeared, treatment modalities. Results. Of the total of 33 diabetics 15 patients were followed for 10 or more years and 18 from 5 to 9 years. At the time of their first visit the mean age was 23.12 ± 6.39 and the mean duration of DM was 17.42 ± 7.42 years. On their first visit, 7 eyes were without any complication. Most of the patients already developed clinical signs of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (41.39%, the signs of nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (13.13% and macula involvement (10.10%. Diabetic cataract was found in 8.8% as well as tractional retinal detachment. Eleven out of 66 eyes were with vitreous hemorrhage. Two patients (5.5% suffered neovascular glaucoma. There was 1 (2.2% patient with developed rubeosis iridis and simplex glaucoma. Panretinal photocoagulation was performed in 65% of patients, focal photocoagulation in 15%, 12% patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy and 4% had cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation and peripheral retinal kryopexy. Conclusion. Total vision loss due to eye complications of juvenile DM may be prevented if timely diagnosed with regular check ups and early treatment.

    Full Text Available El anfípodo Orchestoidea tuberculata, es el carroñero numéricamente dominante en los niveles superiores del intermareal de las playas arenosas del centro sur de Chile. La principal fuente de alimento para juveniles y adultos de este anfípodo son las macroalgas varadas en la playa. Con el objetivo de analizar una eventual partición de ese recurso alimentario por parte de esos juveniles y adultos, se realizaron experimentos tendientes a evaluar preferencias alimentarias sobre las tres macroalgas varadas más comunes de estas playas: Durvillaea antárctica, Macrocystis pyrifera y Lessonia nigrescens. Los juveniles prefirieron consumir L. nigrescens, mientras que los adultos mostraron una preferencia significativa por D. antárctica. Similar a lo registrado en condiciones de laboratorio, los resultados de estudios de terreno muestran que los juveniles de O. tuberculata no presentaron preferencias significativas entre D. antárctica y M. pyrifera, en tanto que los adultos prefirieron los restos de D. antárctica por sobre los de M. pyrifera. Esto sugiere que para los adultos, D. antárctica es una fuente importante de alimento y también de habitat. Debido a que L. nigrescens no pudo ser incluida en los experimentos de terreno, la posibilidad de que los juveniles también prefieren a esta macroalga en esas condiciones permanece como una pregunta abierta. Aunque no se conocen las razones para explicar las diferencias en las preferencias alimentarias de juveniles y adultos, pueden proponerse dos posibilidades: cambios ontogénicos en la morfología de las estructuras bucales utilizadas para alimentación y/ o cambios ontogénicos en los requerimientos nutricionales. Sin embargo, el hecho de que los juveniles prefirieron consumir en condiciones de laboratorio, la macroalga con el menor contenido nutricional (L. nigrescens, sugiere otro tipo de explicación a las diferencias observadas. Esta dice relación con el hecho de que al preferir

    1979-01-01

    A 2-year-old girl was treated with gold salts for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Treatment had to be discontinued when persistent proteinuria was detected. As this case report indicates, close monitoring of the urine is mandatory during treatment with gold salts to detect early signs of toxicity: hematuria followed by casts and then proteinuria as therapy is continued. Histologic examination with electron microscopy will help to differentiate the different forms of gold toxicity. When the findings are consistent with gold-induced renal involvement, therapy should be discontinued. The gold nephropathy usually resolves in time, with no permanent renal damage.

    Paediatric rheumatology is a relatively new specialty that has developed rapidly over the last 30 years. There have been major advances, which have included improvements in the classification and management of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The former has led to enhanced international collaboration with disease registries, multicentre research and the development of new therapeutic agents. This has resulted in improved disease control and remission induction in many. There is, however, still significant morbidity associated with JIA during childhood, adolescence and adulthood, and challenges for the future include early identification of those with a poorer prognosis, appropriate administration of safe therapies and optimizing outcomes as young people move through adolescence into adulthood.

  2. Spatial dynamics of juvenile anchovy in the Bay of Biscay

    Boyra, Guillermo

    2016-07-08

    In autumn 2009, the implementation of two successive acoustic surveys targeting juvenile anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) in the Bay of Biscay allowed us to monitor the changes in the spatial distribution and aggregation patterns of juveniles of this species during 45 days under fairly stable meteorological conditions. Juvenile anchovy changed its biological condition and behavior in a different manner in two distinct areas. In the Spanish sector, the juveniles migrated 20 nautical miles (n.mi.) towards the coast, but they remained on the shelf and near the surface during the whole surveyed period. As the advance towards the shelf break progressed, their area of distribution decreased, their density increased and the juveniles spread in fewer but heavier shoals. In the French sector, the juveniles also migrated from slope waters towards the coast at a similar velocity, but they crossed the shelf break into the continental shelf, where they increased their mean depth significantly until gradually adopting the typical nyctemeral migrations of adult anchovy. The mean length of the juveniles that adopted the nyctemeral migrations was significantly higher than that of the juveniles remaining at the surface, suggesting that body size is relevant to accomplish this change. Besides, the stronger temperature gradients between the shelf and oceanic waters in the Spanish sector, favored by a narrow shelf, may have acted as a barrier influencing the distinct observed spatial patterns in the two areas. © 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd

  3. What we do not know about juvenile sexual reoffense risk.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Caldwell, Michael F

    2002-11-01

    States have increasingly subject juvenile sexual offenders to sex offender registration and commitment under sexual predator laws in recent years. These statutes assume that sexual offenders present a sustained risk to recommit sexually violent crimes over an extended time period. Implicit in this assumption is that criminal sexual behavior is a product of some form of stable trait or condition that continues to push the juvenile toward sexually violent behaviors as they get older. This article examines these assumptions in light of the available research on the stability of sexually offending behavior in juveniles. The difficulties attendant to applying adult offender risk assessment models to juvenile sexual offenders are addressed. The available evidence indicates that the development and persistence of sexually criminal behavior is poorly understood, making the prediction of sustained sexual offending in juveniles that is required by some sexual predator statutes a particularly difficult task.

    Full Text Available Las trayectorias laborales de los jóvenes se diversifican en función de las duraciones, las etapas y las edades en las que ocurren los acontecimientos y se alcanzan ciertos roles. Sin embargo, factores clásicos asociados al origen social o al mundo del trabajo no alcanzan para comprender la diferenciación en los modos de inserción. Este artículo propone la inclusión de las temporalidades juveniles como factor clave para la comprensión de trayectorias laborales de jóvenes. Las temporalidades juveniles sirven para observar conjuntamente los marcos temporales dominantes de la inserción y la manera en la que los mismos son vividos por los sujetos. Las mismas discuten las tesis que señalan que en Argentina los jóvenes son prisioneros de un presentismo sin proyecto o que se someten inevitablemente a un contexto laboral incierto. Cuatro tipo des temporalidades han emergido en el análisis cualitativo y longitudinal de las trayectorias : los "planificadores", los "ejecutantes", los "latentes" y los "oportunistas"

    2017-12-15

    CASE DESCRIPTION 7 juvenile (< 12 months old) dogs with lung lobe torsion were evaluated. CLINICAL FINDINGS All patients were male; breeds included Pug (n = 5), Chinese Shar-Pei (1), and Bullmastiff (1). Dyspnea and lethargy were the most common initial complaints, with a duration of clinical signs ranging from 1 to 10 days. A CBC showed leukocytosis and neutrophilia in all dogs. Anemia was present in 6 dogs, 2 of which received packed RBC transfusions. The diagnosis was made on the basis of results of thoracic radiography, CT, ultrasonography, or a combination of modalities. The left cranial lung lobe was most commonly affected (n = 4), followed by the right middle lung lobe (2) and the right cranial lung lobe (1). TREATMENT AND OUTCOME A lateral intercostal thoracotomy with lobectomy of the affected lobe was performed in all patients. All dogs survived to be discharged between 1 and 2 days postoperatively. Six of 7 owners contacted for follow-up information 7 to 170 months after discharge reported satisfaction with the treatment and no apparent signs of recurrence of disease. CLINICAL RELEVANCE The juvenile patients of this report were successfully treated surgically with no apparent complications. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of lung lobe torsion when evaluating young dogs with clinical signs related to the respiratory system, including those with vague signs, to avoid undue delays in treatment.

    Full Text Available Juvenile cellulitis or juvenile sterile granulomatous lymphadenitis is a rare disorder that affects puppies between three weeks to six months years old. Clinical signs include alopecia, edema, papules, pustules and crusts especially on eyelids. Definitive diagnosis requires cytological and histological evaluation and early and aggressive therapy is recommended, once scars after recovery can be severe .The choice treatment is the high dose of corticosteroids use such as prednisone. Three animals of canine species were attended at the Veterinary Hospital Clinical Small Animal Service presenting different clinical signs. Hemogram, skin lesions and submandibular lymph nodes cytological examination was collected and analyzed. The treatment was instituted, using cephalexin (22mg/kg, twice daily up to control of secondary bacterial infection, and prednisone (2mg/kg, once a day until clinical resolution. Complete cure was obtained at the end of treatment. The aim of this work is to report three clinical cases of juvenile cellulitis in dogs.

    Full Text Available The development of Diapterus peruvianus (Sauvage 1879 is based on 60 larvae collected in superficial tows made in Bahía Concepción, and on 16 prejuvenile and juvenile organisms collected in Bahía de La Paz, B. C. S., México, using a standard plankton net and a rectangular epibenthonic net, respectively. Larvae of D. peruvianus show three large blotches on the dorsum of the gut that can fuse together and give the appearance of one large continuous blotch. There are two to three pre-anal pigments and 16 post-anal pigments in the ventral midline; cephalic pigments are present from the postflexion stage, as well as a serrated preoperculum. The prejuvenile and juvenile organisms are distinguished by their body depth, the analfin formula, the serrated preoperculum and the base pigments in the dorsal and anal fins.El desarrollo de Diapterus peruvianus se analizó con base en 60 larvas recolectadas en Bahía Concepción y 16 pre-juveniles y juveniles recolectados en la Ensenada de La Paz, B.

Se encontró que independientemente del nivel de formación que tengan las profesoras, su principal fuente de aprendizaje son las prácticas. A partir de estos hallazgos se plantean algunas preguntas sobre la relación entre la teoría y las prácticas cotidianas en la formación docente y lo que esto sugiere a las instituciones formadoras de maestros.Abstract This paper, the result of a qualitative research process, serves as a reflection on the ways in which early childhood teachers who belong to schools with different characteristics and possess different levels of training, learn to teach reading and writing to boys and girls. It was found that, independent of their level of training and education, practice in the classroom served as their main source of learning. From these findings, some questions emerge about the relationship between the theory and the everyday practice in the training of educators and what this suggests for the institutions responsible for such activity.

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available Both La lengua de las mariposas and El lápiz del carpintero, written by Manuel Rivas, present conflicts and characters immersed in a context of violence and oppression sparked by the Francoist forces after their victory in Galicia. Meanwhile, one of the narrative cores of Eduardo Sacheri´s La pregunta de sus ojos focuses on the relation between crime, impunity and punishment within the context of Argentinean State violence during the years previous to the military cope of 1976. In all of these works, the presence of despicable and criminal behaviors becomes inseparable from the existence of a dictatorship or other ways of violence related to an oppressive system. Therefore, the questions raised by these human behaviors need complex answers. The concept of grey area, coined by Primo Levi in his testimonial work about his experience in Auschwitz, offers a way to ponder about (and to become intelligible the answers of the human being in limit situations

    Penn, Joseph V.; Esposito, Christianne; Stein, L. A. R.; Lacher-Katz, Molly; Spirito, Anthony

    2009-01-01

    Correctional staff knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of incarcerated juveniles' mental health needs, including suicide prevention, have not been studied empirically. This study measured juvenile correctional officers' knowledge and attitudes regarding suicide risk factors and mental health and substance abuse issues through administration of the Mental Health Knowledge and Attitude Test (MHKAT) before and after a staff training on suicide prevention. Seventy-six participants completed the pre- and post-training MHKAT. They demonstrated significant improvement in knowledge of and attitudes toward mental health treatment of incarcerated youth as reflected by higher post-training MHKAT scores. Findings suggest that correctional staff are receptive to increasing knowledge of critical mental health issues. Studies of the retention and implementation of this new knowledge by direct care staff over time and the optimal type and frequency of new staff training and continuing education are indicated.

    An association between juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG), neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) has been described in the literature but has only been documented in approximately 20 cases. We diagnosed a patient with NF1 at 25 months of age, before any cutaneous...... stigmata of this disease had appeared, because we decided to screen for the NF1 gene mutation because of his presentation with multiple JXGs and moderate macrocephaly (2.5 standard deviations) at 9 months of age and JMML diagnosed at 20 months of age. The child is well today after treatment...... with chemotherapy and allogenic bone marrow transplantation. With increased awareness, patients with JXG and NF1 who develop symptoms possibly related to JMML, such as paleness, skin bleeding, cough, unexplained fever, and hepatosplenomegaly, should be further evaluated.

  15. Laser capture microdissection of gonads from juvenile zebrafish

    Morthorst Jane E

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Investigating gonadal gene expression is important in attempting to elucidate the molecular mechanism of sex determination and differentiation in the model species zebrafish. However, the small size of juvenile zebrafish and correspondingly their gonads complicates this type of investigation. Furthermore, the lack of a genetic sex marker in juvenile zebrafish prevents pooling gonads from several individuals. The aim of this study was to establish a method to isolate the gonads from individual juvenile zebrafish allowing future investigations of gonadal gene expression during sex determination and differentiation. Methods The laser capture microdissection technique enables isolation of specific cells and tissues and thereby removes the noise of gene expression from other cells or tissues in the gene expression profile. A protocol developed for laser microdissection of human gonocytes was adjusted and optimised to isolate juvenile zebrafish gonads. Results The juvenile zebrafish gonad is not morphologically distinguishable when using dehydrated cryosections on membrane slides and a specific staining method is necessary to identify the gonads. The protocol setup in this study allows staining, identification, isolation and subsequent RNA purification and amplification of gonads from individual juvenile zebrafish thereby enabling gonadal gene expression profiling. Conclusion The study presents a protocol for isolation of individual juvenile zebrafish gonads, which will enable future investigations of gonadal gene expression during the critical period of sex differentiation. Furthermore, the presented staining method is applicable to other species as it is directed towards alkaline phosphatase that is expressed in gonocytes and embryonic stem cells, which is conserved among vertebrate species.

  16. Maternal touch moderates sex differences in juvenile social play behavior.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Michelle N Edelmann

    Full Text Available Additional somatosensory contact of preterm human infants improves a variety of developmental assessment scores, but less is known about its lasting consequences. In rodents, maternal contact may influence the programming of juvenile social play behavior. Therefore, we used a paradigm where we can control the levels of somatosensory contact associated with maternal care. We find that additional somatosensory contact of offspring can have lasting consequences on juvenile social play behavior in a sex-dependent manner. Specifically, additional somatosensory stimuli reduced male social play behavior, but did not change female play behavior. We then examined if this additional infant contact altered some neurobiological substrates associated with play within the juvenile amygdala. Control males had lower levels of 5HT2a receptor mRNA levels contrasted to females; however, similar to its sex-dependent effect on juvenile social play, males that received additional somatosensory contact had higher serotonin 5HT2a receptor mRNA levels than control males. No difference was found in females. As serotonin signaling typically opposes juvenile play behavior, these data suggest that maternal touch can program lasting differences in juvenile social play and 5HT2a receptors mRNA levels within the juvenile amygdala.

  17. Setting a minimum age for juvenile justice jurisdiction in California.

    S Barnert, Elizabeth; S Abrams, Laura; Maxson, Cheryl; Gase, Lauren; Soung, Patricia; Carroll, Paul; Bath, Eraka

    2017-03-13

    Purpose Despite the existence of minimum age laws for juvenile justice jurisdiction in 18 US states, California has no explicit law that protects children (i.e. youth less than 12 years old) from being processed in the juvenile justice system. In the absence of a minimum age law, California lags behind other states and international practice and standards. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this policy brief, academics across the University of California campuses examine current evidence, theory, and policy related to the minimum age of juvenile justice jurisdiction. Findings Existing evidence suggests that children lack the cognitive maturity to comprehend or benefit from formal juvenile justice processing, and diverting children from the system altogether is likely to be more beneficial for the child and for public safety. Research limitations/implications Based on current evidence and theory, the authors argue that minimum age legislation that protects children from contact with the juvenile justice system and treats them as children in need of services and support, rather than as delinquents or criminals, is an important policy goal for California and for other national and international jurisdictions lacking a minimum age law. Originality/value California has no law specifying a minimum age for juvenile justice jurisdiction, meaning that young children of any age can be processed in the juvenile justice system. This policy brief provides a rationale for a minimum age law in California and other states and jurisdictions without one.

  18. Prospective Prediction of Juvenile Homicide/Attempted Homicide among Early-Onset Juvenile Offenders.

    Baglivio, Michael T; Wolff, Kevin T

    2017-02-16

    While homicide perpetrated by juveniles is a relatively rare occurrence, between 2010 and 2014, approximately 7%-8% of all murders involved a juvenile offender. Unfortunately, few studies have prospectively examined the predictors of homicide offending, with none examining first-time murder among a sample of adjudicated male and female youth. The current study employed data on 5908 juvenile offenders (70% male, 45% Black) first arrested at the age of 12 or younger to prospectively examine predictors of an arrest for homicide/attempted homicide by the age of 18. Among these early-onset offenders, males, Black youth, those living in households with family members with a history of mental illness, those engaging in self-mutilation, and those with elevated levels of anger/aggression (all measured by age 13) were more likely to be arrested for homicide/attempted homicide by age 18. These findings add to the scant scientific literature on the predictors of homicide, and illustrate potential avenues for intervention.

    Full Text Available While homicide perpetrated by juveniles is a relatively rare occurrence, between 2010 and 2014, approximately 7%–8% of all murders involved a juvenile offender. Unfortunately, few studies have prospectively examined the predictors of homicide offending, with none examining first-time murder among a sample of adjudicated male and female youth. The current study employed data on 5908 juvenile offenders (70% male, 45% Black first arrested at the age of 12 or younger to prospectively examine predictors of an arrest for homicide/attempted homicide by the age of 18. Among these early-onset offenders, males, Black youth, those living in households with family members with a history of mental illness, those engaging in self-mutilation, and those with elevated levels of anger/aggression (all measured by age 13 were more likely to be arrested for homicide/attempted homicide by age 18.

    This article reports on offense related characteristics and the psychosexual development in subgroups of juvenile sex offenders as measured by the Global Assessment Instrument for Juvenile Sex Offenders (GAIJSO). The predictive validity of these characteristics for persistent (sexual) offensive behavior in subgroups of juvenile sex offenders was investigated. One hundred seventy four sex offenders (mean age 14.9 SD 1.4) referred by the police to the Dutch Child Protection Board were examined. Offense related characteristics were assessed by means of the GAIJSO and the BARO (a global assessment tool for juvenile delinquents), and criminal careers of the subjects were ascertained from official judicial records. Serious need for comprehensive diagnostics were found on the domains sexual offense and psychosexual development in juvenile sex offenders, especially in the group of child molesters. These youngsters displayed more internalizing and (psychosexual) developmental problems and their sexual offense was more alarming as compared to the other juvenile sex offender subgroups. Although one third of the juveniles had already committed one or more sex offenses prior to the index offense, at follow up (mean follow up period: 36 months SD 18 months) almost no sexual recidivism was found (0.6% of the entire sample). However, a substantial proportion of the entire sample of juvenile sex offenders showed non-sexual (55.6%) and violent recidivism (32.1%). Several predictors for a history of multiple sex offending and non-sexual recidivism were identified. This study revealed numerous problems in juvenile sex offenders. Assessment using the GAIJSO is helpful in order to identify indicators for extensive diagnostic assessment. In order to investigate the predictive validity for sexual reoffending a longer follow up period is necessary.

    2015-03-01

    Bovine Babesiosis in cattle is caused by the transmission of protozoa of Babesia spp. by ticks as vectors. Juvenile cattle (Bovine Babesiosis, rarely show symptoms, and acquire immunity upon recovery. Susceptibility to the disease varies between breeds of cattle. Models of the dynamics of Bovine Babesiosis transmitted by the cattle tick that include these factors are formulated as systems of ordinary differential equations. Basic reproduction numbers are calculated, and it is proved that if these numbers are below the threshold value of one, then Bovine Babesiosis dies out. However, above the threshold number of one, the disease may approach an endemic state. In this case, control measures are suggested by determining target reproduction numbers. The percentage of a particular population (for example, the adult bovine population) needed to be controlled to eradicate the disease is evaluated numerically using Columbia data from the literature.

    Full Text Available La periodontitis juvenil es una enfermedad del periodonto propia de adolescentes y adultos jóvenes, afecta principalmente los primeros molares y los incisivos y se caracteriza por la pérdida severa del hueso alveolar alrededor de dientes permanentes sin correspondencia entre la rapidez y severidad de la destrucción con los factores locales. En la causa de la enfermedad se citan factores genéticos, infecciosos e inmunológicos. Estudiamos algunos marcadores de inmunorrespuesta en 6 adolescentes que acudieron a nuestro servicio con el diagnóstico de periodontitis juvenil, además de su valoración clínica y radiológica. Ambos sexos se afectaron por igual, la movilidad dentaria y el sangramiento al sondeo fueron los hallazgos clínicos más relevantes y el índice de higiene bucal fue adecuado en todos los casos. No encontramos homogeneidad en las alteraciones inmunológicas, pero todos los pacientes estuvieron afectados en más de un marcador. Predominaron las alteraciones funcionales de linfocitos T en los estudios celulares. La hipogammaglobulinemia y la IgM elevada fueron las alteraciones más frecuentes en la inmunidad de anticuerpos. Se señala la dificultad que aún existe para explicar la patogenia de la enfermedad basándose solamente en un único factor de riesgo, así como la importancia de la valoración individual de cada enfermo.Juvenile periodontitis is a disease of the periodontium inherent to adolescents and young adults, affecting mainly the first molars and incisives and characterized by the severe loss of the alveolar bone sorrounding the permanent teeth with no correspondance between the celerity and severity of the destruction and the local factors.

    Full Text Available The article describes issues concerning mediatory proceedings regarding juvenile court cases in Poland. It was based on original master’s dissertation entitled “Mediation as a form of protection of the juvenile against stigma”. Mediation is most often defined as a voluntary attempt to resolve the conflict and to reach an agreement as it regards the compensation, in presence of impartial and neutral mediator. By contrast with court cases, mediation’s aim is not to point out who is right, but to find a solution of conflict, satisfactory to all parties. Fundamental aim of mediation within juvenile cases is educational and reformatory influence.

    An 8-year-old girl presented with bilateral breast masses and was subsequently diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia. Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia is a rare myelodysplastic syndrome that typically presents in boys younger than 3 years of age with splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and skin findings. Bilateral breast masses in a child are rare and, as such, present a diagnostic dilemma due to the relative paucity of cases in the literature. We present a case of granulocytic sarcoma of the breasts in a patient with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia. The authors hope that increased reporting and research regarding pediatric breast masses will help create awareness for such cases. (orig.)

    Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common arthropathy of childhood. Different diseases affect school attendance to varying degrees. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) on Moroccan children's schooling. Thirty-three children with JIA were included in this study, having been previously diagnosed according to the classification criteria of the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (ILAR). Seventy-four healthy children were recruited to serve as controls. Data was obtained for all children on their school level, educational performance, and attendance. The rate of absenteeism due to health complications was noted. All healthy children were able to attend school (p<0.0001), while 33% of children with JIA were unable to attend school due to their condition. The students with JIA who were able to attend school were absent much more often than controls (63% compared to 20%), with a highly significant p value (p<0.0001). Slightly less than half of the JIA patients (48.5%) failed in their schooling. In univariate analysis, there was an association between absenteeism and tender joints (p=0.02), disease activity score (DAS28) (p=0.007), Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ) (p=0.01), and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (p=0.03). In multivariate analysis, the only association persisted between DAS28 and absenteeism. Our study suggested that the schooling of children with JIA was negatively impacted due to the disorder. More studies, with a larger sample of children, are needed to confirm our findings.

    Juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) is the commonest autoimmune rheumatic disease in childhood and presents different clinical subtypes. Juvenile chronic arthritis is considered to be of a polygenic nature and its genetic background is still under investigation. The clinical profile of JCA in the Greek population has not been studied completely. This study retrospectively analyzed the clinical and immunological features of JCA in Greek children presented between 1989 and 1994. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-positive or -negative associations in the different clinical subtypes were also detected. The findings of this study were correlated with those reported from other populations. Antinuclear antibodies (ANA) anti-ds DNA and anti-extractable nuclear antigen antibodies were estimated by immunofluorescent and ELISA assays. Human leukocyte antigen typing was performed by microlymphocytotoxicity, using immunobeads. The peak ages of JCA onset were between 2 and 5 years and also between 9 and 12 years. There was a high female predominance in pauciarticular and polyarticular groups. The most common disease was pauciarticular (58.7%) followed by systemic (25%) arthritis. The incidence of eye involvement was 12.5% and presented only in the pauciarticular group. Overall, ANA positivity was 53.7%, increasing to 90% in pauciarticular cases associated with chronic uveitis. In the early onset (EOPA) pauciarticular subtype, positive-HLA associations with alleles DR11 and DR8 were shown. In the late onset pauciarticular (LOPA) group only B27 allele was increased. The results of this retrospective study did not reveal major differences between JCA in Greek children compared with other Caucasian series.

    Full Text Available Xantogranuloma Juvenil é uma doença benigna e auto-limitada. Pertence à Classe II da Histiocitose. Manifesta-se geralmente por nódulos cutâneos, principalmente em cabeça e pescoço. Inicia-se na infância na maioria dos casos, é raro em adultos. Sua manifestação extracutânea é rara, sendo mais comum a apresentação ocular. Neste trabalho, relata-se um caso de Xantogranuloma Juvenil exclusivamente em cavidade nasal, cuja ocorrência mundial é extremamente rara. Há relato de apenas um caso de XGJ na cavidade nasal¹. Caso Clínico: D.C.S, 12 anos de idade, sexo feminino, com queixa de obstrução nasal progressiva à direita há cerca de 18 meses. Veio encaminhada por outro serviço com o diagnóstico histopatológico de rinoscleroma. Ao exame, foi observada uma massa tumoral em fossa nasal direita com abaulamento de pirâmide nasal e deslocamento de órbita direita. Foi submetida à exérese do tumor pela técnica de Degloving médio-facial. O diagnóstico histopatológico e imunohistoquímico da peça operatória foi de Xantogranuloma Juvenil. Por tratar-se de uma entidade benigna e de regressão espontânea, foi optado pelo seguimento clínico exclusivo no pós-operatório. Hoje encontra-se no quinto mês de pós-operatório, aparentemente sem recidiva avaliada através de nasofibroscopia.Juvenile Xanthogranuloma is a benign disease, classified as Class II histiocytosis, generally characterised by cutaneous nodules, most commonly, in the head and neck region. It often occurs in childhood and it is rare in adults. Extracutaneous lesions are uncommon, and the most common extracutaneous lesion is in the eye. We report a case of juvenile xanthogranuloma occuring in the nasal cavity, which is extremely rare in literature. We found only one report of xanthogranuloma in nasal cavity in the English Literature¹.

Con ello se quiere señalar el aporte específico que desde la teología se puede realizar para comprender mejor aquel concepto clave, a lahora de pensar la interacción entre la pregunta por lo humano y la teología. Este aporte específico tiene que ver sobre todo con la articulación trinitario-cristológica de la persona para iluminar analógicamente a la persona humana en toda su dignidad desde la "relación-con-otros" como constitutivo de ellaThis article analyses the issue of man from the perspective of the concept of "person" as a singular-concrete being, in the theological and philosophical approach made by H.

This discussion attempts to point out the specific contribution theology can provide, in order to attain a better understanding of such basic concept, especially when it comes to reflecting on the interaction between the human and theological point of view. Such specific contribution deals, above all, with the Trinitarian-Chistological articulation of the person in order to enlighten, by means of an analogy, the human person in its full dignity considering its "relation with others" as constitutive of its self

    The time between fledging and breeding is a critical period in songbird ontogeny, but the behavior of young songbirds in the wild is relatively unstudied. The types of social relationships juveniles form with other individuals can provide insight into the process through which they learn complex behaviors crucial for survival, territory establishment, and mate attraction. We used radio telemetry to observe social associations of young male song sparrows (Melospiza melodia) from May to November. Juvenile song sparrows were frequently observed in social flocks and generally associated with more birds in the summer than in the autumn months. Most juvenile subjects formed stable social relationships with other birds and were seen with the same individual on up to 60% of the days observed. The strongest associations occurred with other juvenile males, and these individuals were often seen social relationships and suggest that these associations may be important for the ecology of young birds and the ontogeny of their behaviors.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Juvenile fibroadenoma constitutes only 4% of the total fibroadenomas. The incidence of giant juvenile fibroadenomas is found to be only 0.5% of all the fibroadenomas. Bilateral giant juvenile fibroadenomas are extremely rare, and only four cases have been reported in the literature. To the best of our knowledge, we are presenting the fifth case of bilateral giant juvenile fibroadenomas in a 12-year-old prepubertal girl. The diagnosis was made on fine-needle aspiration cytology which was confirmed on histopathology. In this paper, we present this rare case to illustrate the diagnosis and management of this tumour and to emphasize that these tumours are almost always benign and should be treated with breast-conserving surgery to provide a healthy physical and social life to the patient.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available In the literature, as well as in international statistical surveys, we can rarely find more detailed information on juvenile delinquency in the Russian Federation, as well as on the criminal reaction towards juvenile offenders. Due to the turbulent conditions and great social turmoil which took place in the last few decades in this country, there should be a greater interest in the problem of juvenile delinquency. For Serbia, the experience of the Russian Federation could be especially important if one bears in mind that our country is still going through a transition, population stratification and through economic crisis, and also that Serbia and the Russian Federation share some cultural and religious similarities. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to present, in the summary way, the basic features of juvenile delinquency and the criminal justice system, and thereby build a basis for future research and comparison.

    The swimming activity of juvenile striped bass (Morone saxatilis Walbaum) 8 to 80 mm long was investigated in a test chamber simulating, on a small scale, a fixed-screen cooling water intake structure. As water velocity increased from 0 to 30 cm/sec area and distance traveled by juvenile bass 10 to 80 mm long decreased. However, as water velocity increased from 0 to 3 cm/sec the area and distance covered by larval bass increased. The presence of food increased the activity of larval bass, but decreased the activity of juveniles. Area ranged by striped bass at test velocities ranging from 0 to 30 cm/sec increased in proportion to body length. Juvenile striped bass tested at acclimation temperatures between 20 and 5/sup 0/C experienced a 30% reduction of activity. Activity was also reduced as temperature increased from 20 to 30/sup 0/C.

    The authors report aspects of paracoccidioidomycosis, acute-subacute clinical form, juvenile type, in a 19-year-old female patient. Paracoccidioidomycosis, juvenile type, classically occurs in young patients, both sexes, with lymphoma-like aspects as initial presentation. However, following the natural history of the disease the lymph nodes assume patterns of infectious disease, as an abscess and fistulae. Systemic dissemination of the disease can occur and lethality and morbidity are significant in this clinical presentation. PMID:27438214

    Full Text Available This study examined the play behaviour in one group of coatis (Nasua narica at La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica. We incidentally found adult males playing with juvenile coatis, and conducted post-hoc analyses to investigate this interaction. Coati groups consist of adult females and juveniles of both sexes until male juveniles reach two years of age and leave the band to become solitary. Adult males only tolerate juveniles for a brief period during breeding season when the males court females to mate. Outside of the breeding season, adult males are known to prey on juveniles. In this study, when adult males were present with the band, play occurred more than was expected by chance, and adult males engaged in many of these play bouts. Because the mechanisms driving infanticidal behaviour are not well understood, and adult male coatis show a range of behaviours from infanticide to highly affiliative interactions with juveniles, using coatis as a model system may elucidate mechanisms underlying infanticide.

    Participation in sports activities is very popular among adolescents, and is frequently encouraged among youth. Many psychosocial health benefits in youth are attributed to sports participation, but to what extent this positive influence holds for juvenile delinquency is still not clear on both the theoretical and empirical level. There is much controversy on whether sports participation should be perceived as a protective or a risk factor for the development of juvenile delinquency. A multilevel meta-analysis of 51 published and unpublished studies, with 48 independent samples containing 431 effect sizes and N = 132,366 adolescents, was conducted to examine the relationship between sports participation and juvenile delinquency and possible moderating factors of this association. The results showed that there is no overall significant association between sports participation and juvenile delinquency, indicating that adolescent athletes are neither more nor less delinquent than non-athletes. Some study, sample and sports characteristics significantly moderated the relationship between sports participation and juvenile delinquency. However, this moderating influence was modest. Implications for theory and practice concerning the use of sports to prevent juvenile delinquency are discussed.

    Juvenile salmon life history strategies, survival, and habitat interactions may vary by age cohort. However, aging individual juvenile fish using scale reading is time consuming and can be error prone. Fork length data are routinely measured while sampling juvenile salmonids. We explore the performance of aging juvenile fish based solely on fork length data, using finite Gaussian mixture models to describe multimodal size distributions and estimate optimal age-discriminating length thresholds. Fork length-based ages are compared against a validation set of juvenile coho salmon, Oncorynchus kisutch, aged by scales. Results for juvenile coho salmon indicate greater than 95% accuracy can be achieved by aging fish using length thresholds estimated from mixture models. Highest accuracy is achieved when aged fish are compared to length thresholds generated from samples from the same drainage, time of year, and habitat type (lentic versus lotic), although relatively high aging accuracy can still be achieved when thresholds are extrapolated to fish from populations in different years or drainages. Fork length-based aging thresholds are applicable for taxa for which multiple age cohorts coexist sympatrically. Where applicable, the method of aging individual fish is relatively quick to implement and can avoid ager interpretation bias common in scale-based aging.

    Within coastal nurseries, the distribution of juvenile flatfish may depend on small-scale habitat variability. The presence of ecosystem engineers is known to have important impacts in coastal sediments. Lanice conchilega is a well-known marine ecosystem engineer of shallow soft bottom ecosystems, shaping the macrobenthic community and attracting flatfish. The present study examines the relation between juvenile flatfish and L. conchilega reefs through two experiments. In a field experiment in the Dutch part of the North Sea, the benthic habitat is evaluated by comparing relative differences in numbers of juvenile flatfish between ecosystem engineered habitats and adjacent bare sand (i.e. non-ecosystem engineered) habitats. The hypothetical shelter seeking behaviour was further examined using stomach content analyses. Results show that juvenile plaice Pleuronectes platessa was the dominant species within the tube worm habitat and the species selects specifically for this biogenic habitat. This selection was explained as feeding behaviour. In a complementary laboratory study, food was excluded and the shelter function of the ecosystem engineered habitat was investigated. This experiment quantifies the selection for this habitat by juveniles of the common sole Solea solea. Results from the flume experiment, manipulating the number of tube worms, show that distribution of sole was not random when current velocities are high. The selected habitat is the one with low density tube worm aggregations. Overall, we conclude that structuring benthos plays an important role for juvenile flatfish, both as refuge and as feeding ground.

    Archival tagging studies of southern bluefin tuna (SBT , Thunnus maccoyii) have revealed that juveniles residing in the Great Australian Bight (GAB) over the austral summer undertake seasonal cyclic migrations to the southeast Indian Ocean and the Tasman Sea during winter. However, there remains disagreement about the extent of mixing between juvenile SBT regularly caught by longline fleets south of Africa and those observed in the GAB. Some researchers have argued that archival tag recoveries indicate most juveniles reside in the GAB over the austral summer. Others have suggested that recoveries of conventional and archival tags are better explained by a juvenile population consisting of separate groups on the eastern and western sides of the Indian Ocean with limited intermixing. We present analyses of catch and tag recovery data and re-examine archival tagging studies. The evidence provided strongly favors the hypothesis of separate juvenile subgroups, or contingents, with limited intermixing. We draw some tentative conclusions about the nature of the putative contingents and discuss some implications of these findings for the interpretation of existing datasets and future research priorities. We also provide the first evidence that the migration choices of juveniles that summer in the GAB are influenced by fidelity to winter feeding grounds and suggest this helps explain the collapse of the surface fishery off New South Wales in the 1980s.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN. El glaucoma no es frecuente en los niños, pero cuando ocurre sus síntomas son poco perceptibles y produce graves consecuencias para la salud visual. El objetivo de este estudio fue caracterizar, desde las aristas clínica y epidemiológica, a los pacientes con glaucoma juvenil atendidos en los servicios de oftalmología de los Hospitales Pediátricos del Cerro y «Pedro Borrás», en Ciudad de La Habana, en el período comprendido entre enero de 2008 y diciembre de 2009. MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio epidemiológico longitudinal y prospectivo, cuyo universo estuvo constituido por 176 pacientes entre 5 y 18 años de edad, con presunto glaucoma. La muestra, después de aplicados los criterios de inclusión y exclusión, quedó conformada por 38 casos. Se analizaron las variables: edad al momento del diagnóstico, sexo, color de la piel, antecedentes familiares según grado de parentesco, agudeza visual máxima corregida, tipo de defecto refractivo, características del ángulo camerular, espesor corneal central, valor de la presión intraocular, alteraciones fundoscópicas y campimétricas. RESULTADOS. En la mayoría de los pacientes el diagnóstico de glaucoma juvenil constituyó un hallazgo. La mediana de edad al momento del diagnóstico fue de 12,5 años, con ligero predominio de varones y de la piel no blanca. Fue más frecuente el antecedente de glaucoma en familiares de segundo grado de consanguinidad. La mayoría de los casos tenía visión óptima, algún grado de miopía y ángulo abierto sin alteraciones evidentes del ángulo camerular, entre las cuales la más frecuente fue la presencia de procesos iridianos prominentes. CONCLUSIONES. Predominaron la disminución moderada del espesor corneal y valores medios de presión intraocular de 26,91 mm Hg. La alteración fundoscópica encontrada con mayor frecuencia fue la excavación papilar moderada (entre 0,4 y 0,5 y como lesión campimétrica, el aumento de la mancha

    Full Text Available El ciberespacio constituye un contexto básico de socialización para los nativos digitales, al tiempo que se configura como un espacio de oportunidad criminal en el que niños, niñas y jóvenes continúan siendo víctimas y agresores. Fenómenos como el cyberbullying, el ciberacoso sexual, el online grooming o el sexting constituyen formas de cibercriminalidad social que, según numerosos estudios sobre cibervictimización y ciberdelincuencia auto-revelada, implican a un importante número de menores en España cada año, especialmente en el caso del ciberbullying y el ciberacoso. Sin embargo, no reflejan lo mismo las estadísticas oficiales. A pesar de apuntar una tendencia creciente de la cibercriminalidad en los últimos años, representa menos de un 2% de todos los delitos conocidos y sólo se dispone de algunos datos fragmentarios sobre la implicación de menores en estos casos. Los datos muestran que este grupo de edad es el más afectado, con mucha diferencia, por los ciberdelitos sexuales, pero también son estos los ciberdelitos que más cometen.

    Por otra parte, las elevadas prevalencias reveladas por los estudios de cibervictimización y ciberdelincuencia auto-revelada no concuerdan con el escaso impacto del ciberdelito juvenil en las estadísticas oficiales y en los tribunales de justicia. Entre las posibles explicaciones destacan la transversalidad de estas formas de delincuencia, que pueden manifestarse en comportamientos ilícitos de muy diversa naturaleza, la ausencia de pruebas para su imputación y esclarecimiento, las dificultades técnicas para dejar constancia del componente cibernético al registrar el ilícito, así como la ausencia de denuncias por parte de las cibervíctimas.

ICs have been detected in patients’ sera with JIA utilizing a variety of methods, including the anti-human IgM affinity column,C1q solid phase assay, polyethylene glycol precipitation, Staphylococcal Protein A separation method, anti-C1q/C3 affinity columns, and FcγRIII affinity method. As many as 75% of JIA patients have had IC detected in their sera. The CIC proteome in JIA patients has been examined to elucidate disease-associated proteins that are expressed in active disease. Evaluation of these IC s have shown the presence of multiple peptide fragments by SDS-PAGE and 2-DE. Subsequently, all isotypes of rheumatoid factor (RF, isotypes of anti-cyclic citrullinated (CCP peptide antibodies, IgG, C1q, C4, C3, and the membrane attack complex (MAC were detected in these IC. Complement activation and levels of IC correlate with disease activity in JIA, indicating their role in the pathophysiology of the disease. This review will summarize the existing literature and discuss the role of possible protein modification that participates in the generation of immune response. We will address the possible role of these events in the development of ectopic germinal centers that become the secondary site of plasma cell development in JIA. We

Fifty-eight adult (>16 week old) and five juvenile (cartilage fragments; Group 3 = juvenile cartilage fragments; and Group 4 = adult + juvenile cartilage fragments. Killings were performed at 3 and 6 months. The defects were evaluated with ICRS macroscopic score, modified O'Driscoll score, and Collagen type II immunostaining. At 3 months, Group 4 performed better than Group 1, in terms of modified O'Driscoll score (p = 0.001) and Collagen type II immunostaining (p = 0.015). At 6 months, Group 4 showed higher modified O'Driscoll score (p = 0.003) and Collagen type II immunostaining score (p cartilage fragments improved cartilage repair in a rabbit model. In the clinical setting, a new "one-stage" procedure combining the two cartilage sources can be hypothesized, with the advantages of improved chondral repair and large defect coverage, because of the use of an off-the-shelf juvenile allograft. Further studies on larger animals and clinical trials are required to confirm these results.

  6. The effect of medical cannabis laws on juvenile cannabis use.

    A number of states in the United States legally allow the use of cannabis as a medical therapy to treat an illness or to alleviate symptoms. Concern persists as to whether these types of laws are increasing juvenile recreational cannabis use. It is also plausible that medical cannabis laws engender an escalation of illicit non-cannabis drug use among juveniles because cannabis is frequently considered to be a gateway drug. This study uses longitudinal data drawn from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health for the 50 U.S. states and a cross-sectional pooled-time series research design to investigate the effect of medical cannabis laws on juvenile cannabis use and on juvenile non-cannabis illicit drug use. Our study period encompasses five measurement periods calibrated in two-year intervals (2002-2003 to 2010-2011). This research design is advantageous in that it affords us the ability not only to assess the effect of the implementation of medical cannabis laws on juvenile drug use, but also to consider other state-specific factors that may explain variation in drug use that cannot be accounted for using a single time series. Findings show that medical cannabis laws amplify recreational juvenile cannabis use. Other salient predictors of juvenile cannabis use at the state-level of analysis include perceived availability of cannabis, percent of juveniles skipping school, severity of perceived punishment for cannabis possession, alcohol consumption, percent of respondents with a father residing in household, and percent of families in the state receiving public assistance. There is little empirical evidence to support the view that medical cannabis laws affect juveniles' use of illicit non-cannabis drugs. Based on our findings, it seems reasonable to speculate that medical cannabis laws amplify juveniles' use of cannabis by allaying the social stigma associated with recreational cannabis use and by placating the fear that cannabis use could potentially result in a

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) has been classified as a syndrome of idiopathic generalized epilepsy and is characterized by specific types of seizures, showing a lack of pathology using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography scanning. However, JME is associated with a particular personality profile, and behavioral and neuropsychological studies have suggested the possible involvement of frontal lobe dysfunction. The development of highly sensitive neuroimaging techniques has provided a means of elucidating the underlying mechanisms of JME. Positron emission tomography demonstrated metabolic and neurotransmitter changes in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex reflecting the particular cognitive and behavioral profile of JME patients. (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy has shown evidence of thalamic dysfunction, which appears to be progressive. Such techniques provide evidence of multi-focal disease mechanisms, suggesting that JME is a frontal lobe variant of a multi-regional, thalamocortical 'network' epilepsy, rather than a generalized epilepsy syndrome. Quantitative MRI revealed significant abnormalities of cortical gray matter in medial frontal areas close to the supplementary motor area and diffusion abnormalities with increased functional coupling between the motor and prefrontal cognitive systems. This altered structural connectivity of the supplementary motor area provides an explanatory framework for the particular imaging findings, seizure type, and seizure-provoking mechanisms in JME.

    Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common rheumatic disease in childhood. The pathogenesis of JIA is thought to be the result of a combination of host genetic and environmental triggers. However, the precise factors that determine one's susceptibility to JIA remain to be unravelled. The microbiome has received increasing attention as a potential contributing factor to the development of a wide array of immune-mediated diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Also in JIA, there is accumulating evidence that the composition of the microbiome is different from healthy individuals. A growing body of evidence indeed suggests that, among others, the microbiome may influence the development of the immune system, the integrity of the intestinal mucosal barrier, and the differentiation of T cell subsets. In turn, this might lead to dysregulation of the immune system, thereby possibly playing a role in the development of JIA. The potential to manipulate the microbiome, for example by faecal microbial transplantation, might then offer perspectives for future therapeutic interventions. Before we can think of such interventions, we need to first obtain a deeper understanding of the cause and effect relationship between JIA and the microbiome. In this review, we discuss the existing evidence for the involvement of the microbiome in JIA pathogenesis and explore the potential mechanisms through which the microbiome may influence the development of autoimmunity in general and JIA specifically.

    The neurologic complication seen in children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) has hardly been studied for which therefore its prevalence is unknown. Some of the clinical manifestations surrounding this event have been studied and have been divided into the following two groups: cervical articular spinal disease and extra-articular manifestations, more commonly seen in adults, the atlas-axoidal subluxation and the neuropathies. A group of 213 children diagnosed as having JRA according to the criteria setforth by the American Association of Rheumatology and followed by the Department of Internal Medicine of the National Institute of Pediatrics, 10 patients were found to have neurologic symptomatology (4.6%). Their arthritis was studied as well as their association with activity data and seropositivity. We found 6 female and 4 male patients with neurologic manifestations; their ages ranged from 7 to 14 years. Six of them were diagnosed with sero-positive polyarticular JRA and the other four with polyarticular sero-negative. All patients showed some activity and the appearance of the neurologic complications ranged between two months and seven years. No correlation was found between the beginning of the arthritis and the neurologic symptomatology, their sex or the type of arthritis. Seven of the cases showed peripheral neuropathy. Two cases had atlas-atloid subluxation and another child showed having cervical column inflammation with a rheumatoid pannus.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

    Full Text Available Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA is the most common autoimmune inflammatory disease of connective tissue in children. It is characterized by progressive joint destruction which causes preserved changes in the musculoskeletal system. The literature describes fully clinical symptoms and radiological images in different subtypes of JIA. However, there is still a limited number of studies reporting on the medical condition of the oral cavity of ill children. JIA can affect hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity by: the general condition of the child’s health, arthritis of the upper limbs, as the result of the pharmacotherapy, changes in secretion and composition of saliva, inflammation of the temporomandibular joint and facial deformity.The study summarizes the available literature on the condition of the teeth and periodontal and oral hygiene in the course of JIA. The presence of diverse factors that modify the oral cavity, such as facial growth, functioning of salivary glands, or the supervision and care provided by adults, prevents clear identification if JIA leads to severe dental caries and periodontal disease. Despite conflicting results in studies concerning the clinical oral status, individuals with JIA require special attention regarding disease prevention and maintenance of oral health.

    Randomized clinical trials provide the gold standard evidence base to guide clinical practice. Despite major advances in trial design, pediatric clinical trials are still difficult to perform and pose unique challenges, including the need to consider the impact of developmental changes in trial design. Advances within pediatric rheumatology combined with the need to comply with legislative requirements have driven new approaches to performing pediatric clinical trials such as utilization of large research networks, incorporation of patient and family stakeholders in the planning and implementation of clinical trials, and the development of novel trial designs. The expansion of available biological therapeutics that now includes biosimilar drugs highlights the important and difficult balance of providing new and cost-effective drugs to children while ensuring safety in a vulnerable population. Future advances in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) clinical trials will likely be the application of precision medicine based on biologic, rather than phenotypic, classification of JIA, with improved understanding of pediatric clinical pharmacology. Clinical trial simulations and comparative effectiveness studies are important supplements to traditional clinical trials, permitting efficient studies and results that are more generalizable.

    Girl, aged 4 years old, began the disease with pain of the lower extremities, fever up to 38°C and signs of upper airway infection. Then the patient developed oedema and redness of the whole face, thickened skin, subcutaneous nodular foldings of the frontal, occipital, cervical and axillary regions, extensor areas of the joints; fine, hard whitish nodules in the frontal region and over interphalangeal joints of the hands, pruritus; oedemas of the ankles, knees and joints of the hands, cervical lymphadenopathy and hepatomegaly. Blood tests at the moment of the diagnosis revealed elevation of markers of inflammation as ESR and CRP, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, hypoalbuminemia, and hyper-alfa-2-globulinemia. Histopathological examination of the skin biopsy specimen and subcutaneous tissue revealed myxoid subcutaneous tissue located under the dermis and a section consisting of myxoid mesenchymal tissue with inflammatory infiltration by histiocytic cells. The presence of acid mucopolysaccharides in fields of the myxoid tissue was also observed. The self-healing juvenile cutaneous mucinosis (SJCM) was diagnosed.

    The present study examines both the patterns of friendship networks and how these network characteristics relate to the risk factors of institutional misconduct for incarcerated youth. Using friendship networks collected from males incarcerated with California's Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), latent profile analysis was utilized to create homogeneous groups of friendship patterns based on alter attributes and network structure. The incarcerated youth provided 144 egocentric networks reporting 558 social network relationships. Latent profile analysis identified three network profiles: expected group (67%), new breed group (20%), and model citizen group (13%). The three network profiles were integrated into a multiple group analysis framework to examine the relative influence of individual-level risk factors on their rate of institutional misconduct. The analysis finds variation in predictors of institutional misconduct across profile types. These findings suggest that the close friendships of incarcerated youth are patterned across the individual characteristics of the youth's friends and that the friendship network can act as a moderator for individual risk factors for institutional misconduct.

    Juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (JSLE) is a complex multisystemic autoimmune disorder of unknown cause. It accounts for about one in five cases of SLE. The tendency for SLE to run a fulminant course when it starts in childhood has made JSLE a potentially more severe disease than adult SLE. Reports of JSLE from sub-Saharan Africa are scanty in spite of the increasing reports of adult SLE. We conducted a 4-year retrospective study of JSLE cases seen at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital between January 2010 and December 2014. Out of the 12 patients studied, eight were girls and four were boys. All patients had positive antinuclear antibody and extractable nuclear antibody tests. Anti-dsDNA antibody was positive in 10 patients. Eight patients had renal disease while four patients had neuropsychiatric manifestations. Haematological abnormalities and constitutional symptoms were present in all patients. Patients were treated with pulse methylprednisolone, oral prednisolone, hydroxychloroquine and azathioprine. Three patients also received rituximab. In conclusion, JSLE exists in Nigeria and exhibits clinical and immunological characteristics similar to its pattern in other parts of the world. It is, however, diagnosed late and is possibly being underdiagnosed as there is no paediatric rheumatologist in the country.

    Juvenile autoimmune hepatitis (JAIH) is a progressive inflammatory liver disease, affecting mainly young girls, from infancy to late adolescence, characterized by active liver damage, as shown by high serum activity of aminotransferases, by elevated immunoglobulin G levels, high titers of serum non organ-specific and organ-specific autoantibodies, and by interface hepatitis on liver biopsy. It is a multifactorial disease of unknown etiology in which environmental factors act as a trigger in genetically predisposed individuals. Two types of JAIH are identified according to the autoantibody panel detected at diagnosis: AIH-1, characterized by the presence of anti-smooth muscle antibody and/or antinuclear antibody and AIH-2, by anti-liver-kidney microsomal antibody type 1 and/or by the presence of anti-liver cytosol type 1 antibody. Epidemiological distribution, genetic markers, clinical presentation and pattern of serum cytokines differentiate the two types of AIH suggesting possible pathogenetic mechanisms. The most effective therapy for AIH is pharmacological suppression of the immune response. Treatment should be started as soon as the diagnosis is made to avoid severe liver damage and progression of fibrosis.

    Full Text Available Abstract Objective Juvenile Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE varies by location and ethnicity. This study describes the clinical, laboratory profile and outcome of juvenile SLE seen at Philippine General Hospital (PGH from 2004-2008. Method Medical charts of all Filipino Juvenile SLE cases admitted at PGH during the 5-year period were reviewed collecting demographic profile, clinical and laboratory manifestations and treatment during disease course. Results Seventy-eight cases of juvenile SLE were reviewed. There were 7 boys and 71 girls. The mean age at diagnosis was 14 years (SD 2.7 with a range of 8-18 years. Fever (52.5% and malar rash (41.0% were the most common features at disease onset. At the time of diagnosis, the most common features were malar rash (65.3%, renal involvement (62.8% and photosensitivity (55.1%. Mucocutaneous (92.3%, renal (71.7% and hematologic (69.2% involvement were the most common features during the entire course of illness. Infection (34.5% and neurologic (19.0% complications were observed most frequently. Corticocosteroid treatment was given in most of the patients in the form of prednisone (97.4% and concomitant methylprednisolone intravenous pulses (29.4%. Nine patients died during the study period. The overall 5-year mortality rate was 11.5%. Infection (77.0% was the most frequent cause of death. Conclusion Malar rash was a common feature at disease onset and at diagnosis among Filipinos with juvenile SLE. Throughout the disease course, renal involvement occurs in 71.7% of patients. Infection was the leading cause of complication and death. The clinical presentations of Filipinos with juvenile SLE were similar to juvenile SLE in other countries.

    The dominancy of semi-wild and hatchery-reared white-spotted charr Salvelinus leucomaenis juveniles was evaluated using pair-wise enclosure tests and field stocking tests. The semi-wild S. leucomaenis originated in a hatchery, being stocked into the test stream as eyed-eggs. In the pair-wise enclosure test, the semi-wild S. leucomaenis dominated the hatchery S. leucomaenis that were of a similar standard length (L(S) ). The semi-wild S. leucomaenis were subordinate to hatchery S. leucomaenis that were > 11% larger in LS . In the field stocking test, the abundance and growth of semi-wild S. leucomaenis was decreased in the presence of larger hatchery S. leucomaenis (14% larger LS ). Taken together, these results suggest that larger hatchery S. leucomaenis ecologically suppress the smaller semi-wild S. leucomaenis. Salvelinus leucomaenis juveniles that are stocked with the intention of supplementing natural populations should be hatchery S. leucomaenis used in both tests were genetically similar individuals, suggesting that the differences are due to the early rearing environment of either a natural stream or hatchery. The hatchery S. leucomaenis have lower levels of aggression as a result of selection in the hatchery rearing environment. Rearing in a natural stream from the eyed-egg stage is likely to increase their lowered aggression. Journal of Fish Biology © 2014 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.

    Most child pornography is distributed online. It is estimated that 3% to 15% of child pornography consumers are juveniles. The present study analyzed a consecutive sample of 54 male juveniles convicted of the possession of child pornography. Demographic characteristics, criminal history, and subsequent offending were assessed from criminal files and official reports. Juvenile possessors of child pornography were compared to three different groups of juveniles: Juvenile possessors of other illegal pornography (n = 42), juveniles who committed a sexual contact offense against a child (n = 64), and juveniles who committed a sexual contact offense against a peer or adult (n = 104). Juvenile possessors of child pornography were found to have downloaded the illegal material more frequently and over a longer time period than juvenile possessors of other illegal pornography. Furthermore, juvenile possessors of child pornography differed from juveniles who had committed a sexual contact offense in terms of demographics and showed fewer previous and subsequent offending than juveniles who sexually offended against a peer or adult. We conclude that juvenile possessors of child pornography need a specific target intervention focusing on dysfunctional Internet use and sexually deviant arousal. © The Author(s) 2013.

    We studied home range and movements of 15 radio-marked, juvenile Puerto Rican parrots (Amazona vittata) fledging from wild nests during summer and fall, 1985-87. When juvenile parrots remained in the nest valley, home ranges during 1986 (.hivin.x = 32 .+-. 10 [SE] ha, n = 4) were larger (P = 0.0079) than during 1987 (.hivin.x = 13 .+-. 6 ha, n = 5). After radio-marked parrots integrated into adult flocks, home ranges during 1986 (.hivin.x = 1,075 .+-. 135 ha, n = 3) were similar (P = 0.10) to 1987 (.hivin.x = 416 .+-. 62 ha, n = 2). Juvenile parrots restricted their movements to nest valleys an average of 58 .+-. 29 days following fledging. After joining adult flocks, juvenile parrots routinely flew between the east and west slopes of the Luquillo Mountains but did not exhibit a seaonal pattern of movement. We recommend that captive-raised, juvenile parrots used in release programs be .gtoreq. 5 months old to ensure they are mature enough to integrate into wild flocks.

Children with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis often show growth retardation and developmental abnormality, as well as macrophage activation syndrome, a life-threatening complication. Overproduction of interleukin-6 is pathologically responsible for the systemic inflammatory manifestations and abnormal laboratory results with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Thus, tocilizumab, a humanized antihuman interleukin-6 receptor antibody, has been developed as a therapeutic agent for the disease. A series of clinical studies have demonstrated the excellent efficacy and safety of tocilizumab for patients with active disease. Tocilizumab was approved for systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis in Japan in 2008 and in the European Union and the United States in 2011.Keywords: systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis, tocilizumab, antihuman interleukin-6 receptor antibody, biologics

    Research consistently finds that low self-control is significantly correlated with delinquency. Only recently, however, have researchers started to examine associations between parental low self-control, family environments, and child antisocial behavior. Adding to this emerging area of research, the current study examines associations between parental low self-control, aspects of the family environment, and officially recoded juvenile delinquency among a sample (N = 101) of juveniles processed through a juvenile justice assessment facility located in the Southeastern United States. Furthermore, it considers whether aspects of family environments, particularly family cohesion, family conflict, and parental efficacy, mediate the influence of parental low self-control on delinquency. The results of a series of analyses indicate that parental low self-control is correlated with various aspects of family environments and juvenile delinquency, and that the association between parental low self-control and juvenile delinquency is mediated by family environments. Supplementary analyses also suggest that the association between parental low self-control and the family environment may be reciprocal. © The Author(s) 2015.

    Measuring population connectivity is a critical task in conservation biology. While genetic markers can provide reliable long-term historical estimates of population connectivity, scientists are still limited in their ability to determine contemporary patterns of gene flow, the most practical time frame for management. Here, we tackled this issue by developing a new approach that only requires juvenile sampling at a single time period. To demonstrate the usefulness of our method, we used the Speartooth shark (Glyphis glyphis), a critically endangered species of river shark found only in tropical northern Australia and southern Papua New Guinea. Contemporary adult and juvenile shark movements, estimated with the spatial distribution of kin pairs across and within three river systems, was contrasted with historical long-term connectivity patterns, estimated from mitogenomes and genome-wide SNP data. We found strong support for river fidelity in juveniles with the within-cohort relationship analysis. Male breeding movements were highlighted with the cross-cohort relationship analysis, and female reproductive philopatry to the river systems was revealed by the mitogenomic analysis. We show that accounting for juvenile river fidelity and female philopatry is important in population structure analysis and that targeted sampling in nurseries and juvenile aggregations should be included in the genomic toolbox of threatened species management. © 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Behavioral health needs in justice-involved adolescents are an increasing concern, as it has been estimated that two-thirds of youths in the juvenile justice system now meet the criteria for one or more psychological disorders. This article describes the application of the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM), developed to describe five "points of interception" from standard prosecution into rehabilitation-oriented alternatives for adults (Munetz & Griffin, 2006), to juvenile justice. The five SIM intercepts are: (1) first contact with law enforcement or emergency services; (2) initial hearings and detention following arrest; (3) jails and courts (including problem-solving courts); (4) re-entry from jails, prisons and forensic hospitals; and (5) community corrections and community support, including probation and parole. Modifying the SIM for application with justice-involved adolescents, this article describes three examples of interventions at different intercepts: Intercept 1 (the Philadelphia Police School Diversion Program), Intercept 3 (problem-solving courts for juveniles), and Intercept 5 (juvenile probation). Relevant research evidence for each example is reviewed, and the further application of this model to juveniles is described. Copyright © 2017 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    2004-12-01

    This article provides an overview of what is known about the prevalence, diagnosis, and effective treatment of mood disorders among youths, particularly among juvenile offenders, and discusses the unique problems that arise for the delivery of treatment services. The relationship between mood disorders and disruptive or delinquent behaviors as well as the particular importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders in this population are discussed. A search was conducted of the MEDLINE and PsycINFO databases for articles that had been published since 1980 on mood disorders in the juvenile offender population as well as articles on adolescent mood disorders. The studies on the prevalence of mood disorders among juvenile offenders varied significantly in the methodology used and in the rates of prevalence found, although all studies showed that this population had high rates of mood disorders. The identification and effective treatment of mood disorders is critical because these disorders are a leading cause of suicide among adolescents and because mood disorders may contribute to or exacerbate delinquent and disruptive behaviors. Juvenile detainees have a constitutional right to needed mental health treatment. More comprehensive mental health services are required to ensure that juvenile offenders with mental illness are identified and cared for appropriately. Doing so not only will alleviate painful symptoms but may also contribute significantly to improvements in psychosocial functioning, interpersonal relations, and school performance and to decreases in delinquent, disruptive, and suicidal behaviors.

    Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) is a common genetic generalized epilepsy syndrome. Several studies have detailed cognitive and imaging abnormalities pointing to frontal lobe dysfunction, as well as disadvantageous behavioral traits and poor social outcome, challenging the commonly held view of JME being a benign disorder. Social cognition is the ability to elaborate mental representations of social interactions and to use them correctly in social contexts, and includes Theory of Mind (ToM), which pertains to the attribution of cognitive and affective mental states to self and others and seems to rely on complex fronto-temporal interactions. ToM has been recently assessed in focal epilepsy syndromes, but little is available for generalized epilepsies. We performed a cross-sectional study to assess social cognition, with an emphasis on ToM, as well as standard cognitive functions in patients with JME. We recruited twenty JME patients and twenty matched controls. Tests used to assess social cognition and ToM included the Emotion Attribution Task, Strange Stories Task (SST), Faux Pas Task (FPT), Reading the Mind in the Eyes Task and Social Situation Task. Subjects were also assessed via an extensive neuropsychological battery. Patients exhibited worse performance in the SST and in several scores of the FPT. They also showed widespread cognitive impairment, involving executive functions, psychomotor speed, verbal and visuo-spatial memory. In addition to cognitive impairment for fronto-temporal tasks, some features of social cognition are also altered in JME. The latter deficit may underlie the poor social outcome previously described for these patients, and might also relate to imaging findings of frontal lobe dysfunction. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

    There is a view that young people presenting with an animal cruelty and firesetting combination represent a uniquely risky group, but prior work has relied on samples with insufficient power. What is the prevalence of the co-occurrence of animal cruelty and firesetting behaviour among young delinquents? What other features correlate with this? We measured the prevalence of animal cruelty and firesetting among 292,649 juvenile offenders and used rare events logistic regression to examine demographic, criminal, mental health and family histories as correlates. The prevalence of animal cruelty was 0.59%, accounting for 1732 young people, and of firesetting 1.56% (n = 4553). The co-occurrence of these behaviours was rare: 0.17% (n = 498), but approximately twice that expected by chance based on the prevalence of each behaviour individually (0.59% × 1.56% = 0.009%). Rates were higher in males, older youths and Whites. Among historical variables, criminal history was the strongest correlate, followed by mental health problems, then familial and individual indicators. As only male gender and being a victim of sexual abuse increased the odds of evidencing both animal cruelty and firesetting behaviour substantially above the odds for each behaviour individually, there thus appears to be little that is unique to the co-occurrence. Our findings suggest that sensitivity to the occurrence of each is the best way forward, with rather familiar assessments and interventions offering some hope of reducing these seriously damaging behaviours.

  14. A new mass mortality of juvenile Protoceratops and size-segregated aggregation behaviour in juvenile non-avian dinosaurs.

    Monodominant bonebeds are a relatively common occurrence for non-avian dinosaurs, and have been used to infer associative, and potentially genuinely social, behavior. Previously known assemblages are characterized as either mixed size-classes (juvenile and adult-sized specimens together) or single size-classes of individuals (only juveniles or only adult-sized individuals within the assemblage). In the latter case, it is generally unknown if these kinds of size-segregated aggregations characterize only a particular size stage or represent aggregations that happened at all size stages. Ceratopsians ("horned dinosaurs") are known from both types of assemblages. Here we describe a new specimen of the ceratopsian dinosaur Protoceratops andrewsi, Granger and Gregory 1923 from Mongolia representing an aggregation of four mid-sized juvenile animals. In conjunction with existing specimens of groups of P. andrewsi that includes size-clustered aggregations of young juveniles and adult-sized specimens, this new material provides evidence for some degree of size-clustered aggregation behaviour in Protoceratops throughout ontogeny. This continuity of size-segregated (and presumably age-clustered) aggregation is previously undocumented in non-avian dinosaurs. The juvenile group fills a key gap in the available information on aggregations in younger ceratopsians. Although we support the general hypothesis that many non-avian dinosaurs were gregarious and even social animals, we caution that evidence for sociality has been overstated and advocate a more conservative interpretation of some data of 'sociality' in dinosaurs.

    The management of juvenile myasthenia gravis (MG) remains controversial. We report herein the case of a 12-year-old girl with prepubertal juvenile MG with respiratory crisis who underwent thymectomy following methylprednisolone pulse therapy. The patient initially developed progressively worsening fatigability, eyelid ptosis, and diplopia, followed by worsening generalized weakness, dysphagia, and dyspnea. Even after i.v. immunoglobulin, the patient presented with rapid onset of severe dyspnea requiring respiratory support with mechanical ventilation and was graded as Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America class V. After a course of i.v. methylprednisolone pulse therapy, successful control of respiratory crisis was achieved, and trans-sternal thymectomy was performed. Partial remission was achieved postoperatively with oral pyridostigmine without immunosuppressive agents such as steroids or calcineurin inhibitors for 18 months after thymectomy. Early thymectomy following induction methylprednisolone pulse therapy might be a treatment option for prepubertal juvenile MG with severe respiratory crisis. © 2016 Japan Pediatric Society.

    Full Text Available Juvenile hemochromatosis is a rare and severe form of hereditary hemochromatosis. We report the case of a 39-year-old female who presented with heart failure and cirrhosis from previously unrecognized juvenile hemochromatosis. This is the latest presentation described in the literature. An important clue to the diagnosis was a history of amenorrhea since the age of 20 that had never been investigated. The patient died of intractable heart failure two months after the initial presentation. Juvenile hemochromatosis should be suspected in a young patient with endocrine or cardiac manifestations. Early diagnosis is crucial since phlebotomy can improve the prognosis and delay or prevent progression to heart failure and cirrhosis.

    Animal movement is a fundamental eco-evolutionary process yet the behaviour of juvenile animals is largely unknown for many species, especially for soaring seabirds which can range widely over the oceans at low cost. We present an unprecedented dataset of 98 juvenile albatrosses and petrels (nine species), tracked for the first three months after independence. There was a startling diversity within and among species in the type and scale of post-natal movement strategies, ranging from area-restricted to nomadic patterns. Spatial scales were clustered in three groups that ranged from 6000 km from the natal nest. In seven of the nine species, the orientation of flight paths and other movement statistics showed strong similarities between juveniles and adults, providing evidence for innate orientation abilities. Our results have implications for understanding the development of foraging behaviour in naïve individuals and the evolution of life history traits such as survival, lifespan and breeding strategy.

    Full Text Available The study aimed to reveal the role of literary work, especially a novel in reflecting the social fenomena, the juvenile delinquency in the twentieth century. The data source was an English novel ‘Clockwork Orange’ written by Anthony Burgess. The research applied library research by using reflection theory introduced by Georg Lukacs. Analysis was presented in three parts, those were the identification of major character, social setting, and the reflection of juvenile delinquency.The findings were as follows. First, the major character was Alex as his hig intensity in all the events that build the whole story. Second, the social setting described the life of teenagers, especially the juvenile delinquency as social fenomena in society. Third, the role of literary work in revealing the problem above faced by the twentieth century society. Finally, it can be concluded that the literary work has played a very important role in revealing the social fenomena.

The models including wood-specific gravity ( exhibited higher 2 than those without . The model consisting of , stem diameter (, and height ( not only exhibited the highest 2 value but also had the lowest standard error of estimate. We suggest that -based regression model is a viable option for nondestructive estimation of biomass of forest trees at juvenile stage.

    Full Text Available The psychological assessment of offenders throughout the different stages in the juvenile justice system is essential. It ensures the adequacy of the legal and educational measures to be applied in the process. This paper reviews the main tests of psychological assessment available in Spanish, suitable for use by psychology professionals who work with young offenders in the juvenile justice services in Spanish-speaking countries. We classify these tools into three groups: a personological, i.e. generic tools, suitable for any professional context in psychology, b clinical, i.e. tools whose initial use has been limited to working with adolescents with mental health needs, and c forensic, tools that have been specially developed for use in the juvenile justice population. This last group is described in the second part of this article (which appears in this same issue. The most important instruments of proven utility are presented and reviewed for each group.

    Full Text Available La retinosquisis es una distrofia vitreorretiniana caracterizada por la separación de las capas de la retina y la formación de quistes intrarretinianos. En la retinosquisis juvenil se describen alteraciones oftalmológicas que la distinguen de la retinosquisis adquirida. Con el objetivo de describir las características clínicas de un caso atípico de retinosquisis juvenil se realizó el estudio de un paciente varón de 8 años de edad, quien acudió a consulta por disminución de la visión y la posibilidad de ayuda óptica. Al examen del fondo de ojo se visualizó una esquisis a nivel macular y periférica con edema de ambas máculas. El electrorretinograma presentó una disminución en la amplitud de la onda b. La tomografía de coherencia óptica reveló la separación de la retina interna a nivel de la capa de fibras nerviosas y el edema macular quístico. El tratamiento realizado fue la corrección y la ayuda ópticas para la visión cercana. Se concluye que se trata de una enfermedad infrecuente y, a su vez, de un caso atípico donde se imbricaron diversos signos que orientaban hacia las dos formas clínicas de la enfermedad, pero independientemente de que aparezcan características de retinosquisis adquirida en un paciente joven, el tratamiento de rehabilitación visual con ayuda óptica sigue siendo el más indicado para lograr una mayor calidad visual.The retinoschisis is a vitreoretinal dystrophy characterized by the separation of the retina layers and the formation of intraretinal cysts, In juvenile retinoschisis are described ophthalmologic alterations distinguished of the acquired retinoschisis. The objective of present paper was to conduct a study to describe the clinical features of an atypical case of juvenile retinoschisis of a male patient aged 8 who came to consultation due to a decrease of vision and the possibility of optical help. At eye examination it was visualized a schisis at macular level and peripheral with edema

  5. Statistical indicators and trends in juvenile delinquency in modern Russia

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Statistics of juvenile delinquency in Russia for ten years, allowing to determine its current trends, is presented. It’s noted that earlier the proportion of juveniles among all criminals was about 11-12%. During the period from 2003 to 2013 the proportion of juveniles in the total number of identified offenders decreased to 6%. Despite the reduction in the number of crimes committed by this category of persons, for several years the largest criminal activity is maintained in the age group 16-17 years (70%. Smaller proportion is the age group 14-15 years, there’s a reduction in the number of committed crimes: from 49,300 in 2000 to 19,700 in 2013. Over the same period, the number of reported crimes committed by minors or with their complicity decreased almost three times. With all the ambiguity of attitude to the considered problem, the author defines the role of criminal law policy of the state in response to trends in juvenile crime taking into account its specificity, caused by the complex of interrelated factors related to age, social, psychological characteristics of juveniles as a special social group, the originality of their social status. The legislative novel is considered: the punishment in the form of arrest is not imposed on persons under the age of eighteen by the time of court verdict. It’s summarized that the problems of juvenile delinquency are only partly solved by the humanization of criminal law policy of the state in order to restore social justice, correct the convict and prevent new crimes commission.

    Celiac disease (CD) is the most frequent enteropathy in adults and its coexistence with other autoimmune diseases is frequent. To detect asymptomatic CD in children with rheumatic diseases by measuring tissue transglutaminase (tTG) antibodies and finding any relation to disease activity. Setting and study design: The study included 60 children with juvenile rheumatic diseases consecutively from those attending the Rheumatology Clinics of Cairo University Hospitals: 30 juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA), 10 juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), 12 juvenile seronegative spondyloarthropathy and eight juvenile systemic sclerosis/polymyositis (SSc/PM) overlap syndrome were recruited during 2010. There were 22 male and 38 female patients. Thirty matched healthy controls were included. All children were subjected to thorough history taking, clinical examination and laboratory investigations. The body mass index (BMI) for age was used. All subjects had no gastrointestinal tract symptoms suggestive of CD and the tTG antibodies (IgA and IgG) were assessed. The mean age of patients was 12.03 ± 3.3 years and disease duration 4.18 ± 3.24 years. The demographic, clinical and laboratory features of the children were studied and compared. The tTG was positive in 32 (53.3%) patients compared to 20% of the controls (P = 0.03), being higher in females. In tTG-positive patients, the BMI was significantly lower, while white blood cell count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and disease activity were significantly higher. tTG antibodies may be used as a screening test to identify asymptomatic CD associated with juvenile rheumatic diseases, especially those with active JRA or marked reduction in BMI. © 2011 The Authors.

    Fifteen juvenile Puerto Rican Parrots (Amazona vittata) from wild nests in 1985, 1986 and 1987 were radio monitored an average of 110 +- 15.9 (SE) d (range 4-209 d) post-fledgling. Minimum survival was 67% (n = 3) in 1985, 100% (n = 4) in 1986 and 43% (n = 7) in 1987. Most mortality (three of five deaths) occurred during the first 35 d following fledgling. A major cause of mortality was predation by raptors. This research shows that additional studies are needed to define mortality causes to juvenile and adult free-flying Puerto Rican Parrots and to develop management guidelines to increase survival.

    Juvenile Huntington disease manifests differently from adult Huntington disease and has more variability in presentation. We describe a child with cognitive decline and adventitial movements in whom Huntington disease was confirmed with genetic testing. MR imaging showed abnormal T2 prolongation in the putamina and progressive caudate atrophy, and MR spectroscopy revealed elevated myoinositol and diminished N-acetyl aspartate, creatine, and phosphocreatine. Imaging findings of caudate atrophy and abnormal T2 prolongation in the putamina with MR spectroscopy findings consistent with dense gliosis can be helpful indicators of juvenile Huntington disease.

    Full Text Available Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS is an inherited developmental disorder. More than 40% of individuals with TCS have conductive hearing loss attributed to external and middle ear anomalies. Mild cases of TCS often pass undiagnosed at birth or early childhood. The disease may be manifested as conductive hearing loss in teenagers and may resemble juvenile otosclerosis. Patients could suffer from slight facial variabilities including retrognathia (as in our case and others, which point out to a possible middle ear anomaly. Surgical corrections of middle ear anomalies including TCS generally lead to poorer outcomes comparing with juvenile otosclerosis, which should be discussed with parents during preoperative counselling.

    The coexistence of autoimmune hepatitis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis is very rare. This is the case of an 18 month old female patient whose first sign of disease was torticollis due to an underlying atlanto-axial subluxation. Three months later, bilateral knee arthritis developed and she was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Throughout the disease a persistent elevation of liver enzymes was noted, combined with positive antinuclear antibodies and hypergammaglobulinemia, reaching the diagnosis of concomitant autoimmune hepatitis.

    There is a worldwide variation in the prevalence and subtype distribution of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) which may be affected by ethnicity and genetic factors. The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence, subtype distribution and characteristic features of JIA among Omani children and to compare our results with other ethnic populations worldwide. A population-based, multicenter study among pediatric rheumatology clinics in the Sultanate over a 10 year period between 2004-2013. The diagnosis of JIA and identification of JIA subtypes was based on the ILAR 2004 revised criteria. The hospital charts of these patients were retrospectively reviewed and information was collected. All patients were screened for uveitis by an ophthalmologist using slit lamp examination during regular follow up visits. The study included a total of 107 cases of JIA in Oman over the study period. Among the 107 patients, 71 % (n = 77) were girls with a female:male ratio of 2.5:1. The mean age of disease onset was 6.85 ± 3.86 years (range 1-13years) while the mean disease duration of 4.8 ± 2.9 years (range 1-11 years). The incidence of JIA was estimated at 2/100,000 with a prevalence of JIA of 20/100,000. The prevalence of JIA in girls was 28/100,000 while the prevalence in boys was 12/100,000. According to disease distribution, the most frequent subtype was polyarticular JIA rheumatoid factor negative (39.2 %) followed by oligoarthritis (31.8 %), systemic (17.8 %), polyarticular JIA rheumatoid factor positive (7.5 %). The unique feature of the Omani cohort is the lack of occurrence of uveitis. This is the first epidemiological JIA study conducted in Oman that highlights unique geographical disease phenotype. Compared to Western counties, there were higher frequency of polyarticular disease and lack of occurrence of uveitis. Further studies are needed to evaluate the implications of genetic, ethnic and environmental differences of disease expression.

    The ontogeny of migration routines used by wild birds remains unresolved. Here we investigated the migratory orientation of juvenile lesser spotted eagles (LSE; Clanga pomarina) based on translocation and satellite tracking. Between 2004 and 2016, 85 second-hatched juveniles (Abels) were reared in captivity for release into the declining German population, including 50 birds that were translocated 940 km from Latvia. In 2009, we tracked 12 translocated juveniles, as well as eight native juveniles and nine native adults, to determine how inexperienced birds come to use strategic migration routes. Native juveniles departed around the same time as the adults and six of eight used the eastern flyway around the Mediterranean, which was used by all adults. In contrast, translocated juveniles departed on average 6 days before native LSEs, and five travelled southward and died in the central Mediterranean region. Consequently, fewer translocated juveniles (4/12) than native juveniles (7/8) reached Africa. We conclude that juvenile LSEs have a much better chance of learning the strategic southeastern flyway if they leave at an appropriate time to connect with experienced elders upon departure. It is not clear why translocated juveniles departed so early. Regardless, by the end of the year, most juveniles had perished, whether they were translocated (10/12) or not (6/8). The small number of surviving translocated juveniles thus still represents a significant increase in the annual productivity of the German LSE population in 2009. © 2017.

    Full Text Available En 2005 celebramos el centenario del natalicio del filosofo, escritor y dramaturgo francés Jean Paul Sartre, fecha adecuada para recalcar su legado a la cultura, al teatro, a la literatura y por supuesto su valioso aporte a la filosofía y a la teoría política. En la obra de Henry Levy: Le siècle de Sartre se plantea la cuestión de si Sartre es filosofo o no, llegando a la conclusión de que Francia ha tenido grandes pensadores, entre ellos Sartre, pero no grandes filósofos, pues han sabido interpretar la filosofía alemana y no han creado un sistema de reflexión filosófico propio. Esta es la oportunidad para replantear la cuestión y mostrar el valioso aporte que Sartre hace a la fenomenología: su planteamiento ontológico. Aquí, el tema de la mirada cobra protagonismo en el autor, no solo desde la filosofía sino desde lo que él mismo llamo teatro de situaciones. La novedad de Sartre, respecto al tema de la mirada, es su tratamiento desde un análisis ontológico inspirado por la fenomenología. ¿Por qué Edipo extirpo sus ojos? Puede ser la pregunta que guíe nuestra reflexión sobre la mirada en J. P. Sartre. La mirada, el otro y la intersubjetividad son núcleos esenciales de esta reflexión que abordamos desde la perspectiva fenomenológica. Quedará pendiente una reflexión posterior para analizar el mismo problema desde el segundo Sartre, es decir, el que pone a dialogar marxismo y existencialismo. / Abstract.

Se estructura la razón de las discrepancias en función del tipo de pregunta de investigación: frecuencia, diagnóstico, etiología, pronóstico y tratamiento-prevención. Es el proceso de selección el que justifica las diferencias en frecuencia y pronóstico. En relación con el diagnóstico, las discrepancias se deben a la prevalencia de la enfermedad.

When discussing the possibility of vaccinating rheumatic patients we should take into account the ultra high dangers that infectious diseases pose for such patients, including those that can be prevented by vaccination. We should also take into account the experience of using various vaccine types in rheumatic patients, which illustrates of their high safety profile.Objective: Our aim was to study the immunization schedule in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.Methods: The evaluation of vaccine history and other anamnestic data in juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients was based on individual medical records (individual child’s card/preventive vaccination certificate, as well as questionnaires filled by mothers.Results: It has been determined that a significant proportion of children with vaccination schedule deviations are juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients. Almost one in four children with a confirmed rheumatic diagnosis has not been immunized against the major vaccine-preventable diseases. In one non-vaccinated group, there was a case of juvenile arthritis onset after recovering from measles. A small number of patient mothers connects the manifestation of rheumatic diseases with vaccination.Conclusion: Violations of vaccination status in JIA patients require corrections according to the results of clinical studies and the recommendations of international experts.

    In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in juvenile sex offenders showing that this population is highly heterogeneous. The aim of the present study was to identify possible different profiles that could help understand the motivation behind offending, comparing 31 Juvenile Sexual Offenders (JSOs), 31 Juvenile Sexual Non Offenders (JSNOs) and 31 Juvenile Non Offenders (Control Group). A data collection form, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-Adolescent (MMPI-A) or Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2), the Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations (CISS) and the Parental Bonding Inventory (PBI) were administered to all participants. The results show that JSOs differs from JNSOs in some domains, such as living in single-parent homes, while maintain some common aspects such as academic failure and previous sexual intercourse. Moreover, JNSOs showed more abnormal personality traits, such as Authority Problems, MacAndrew Alcoholism, Acknowledgement and Alcohol-Drug Problem Proneness compared to JSOs and the Control Group, while JSOs and JNSOs use a coping strategy more oriented to Avoidance and Distraction compared to the Control group. Finally, JSOs described the relationships with fathers characterized by higher care and protection than JNSOs. These findings provide additional evidence with respect the prevention and treatment of criminal sexual behavior in adolescent. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is the most common clinical subgroup of sero-negative spondyloarthropathies. Radiographic and clinical signs of bilateral inflammatory involvement of sacroiliac joints are the gold standard for the diagnosis of juvenile AS. Although radiographic evidence of sacroiliitis is included in the definition, it is not mandatory for the diagnosis of juvenile AS. The aim of this study is to describe pelvic enthesitis-osteitis MRI findings accompanying sacroiliitis in a group of juvenile AS. Eleven patients suffering from low back pain underwent MRI of the pelvis and were enrolled in this retrospective study. The mean duration of symptoms was 12 months. The mean age of the 11 cases in our study was 12.18 years (range, 6-19). There were eight boys and three girls. Anteroposterior radiographs of the pelvis were obtained in all patients. Sacroiliac joint involvement was detected in all of the cases by pelvic MRI. Pathologic signal changes were detected in the pubic symphisis (osteitis pubis) in ten cases, trochanteric bursitis in six cases, coxofemoral joint in five cases, crista iliaca in three cases, and ischion pubis in three cases. There was increased T2 signal intensity in eight of the 11 cases (72.7%) relevant with soft tissue edema/inflammation. This high correlation between sacroiliitis and enthesitis suggests that enthesitis could be an important finding in juvenile AS.

    2009-06-01

    To study and evaluate the feasibility and effect of the treatment for juvenile recurrent laryngeal papilloma by nasal endoscopy electric suction cutting and laser surgery. The clinical data of 26 cases with juvenile recurrent laryngeal papilloma from 2002-2007 years were retrospectively analyzed. Six cases were treated by electric suction cutting under nasal endoscopy, 20 cases were treated by electric suction cutting under nasal endoscopy and synergizing laser, and postoperative wound with sodium hyaluronate gel treatment. The juvenile recurrent laryngeal papilloma were only operated by electric suction cutting with nasal endoscopy, laryngeal papilloma relapsed with fibrolaryngoscope examination at 4 weeks after operation, and were operated again during 2 to 3 months. The juvenile recurrent laryngeal papilloma were treated by electric suction cutting synergies laser treatment with the help of nasal endoscopy, and they were also treated repeatedly with laser at 2 or 3 weeks after operation. Sixteen cases cured perfectly with no reappearance after an 3 to 8 years follow up, and the other 4 cases showed the prolongation of recurrence interval. Electric suction synergy laser treatment could effectively reduce the recurrence of the laryngeal papilloma, and it also needs laser treatment several times after operation to improve the treatment effect. The sodium hyaluronate gel is adopted on the wound of vocal cords, it can avoid the vocal cords scar and adhesion, and improve the quality of pronunciation. Some patients can be cured by this treatment method, and it should be advocated in the clinical work.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between clinical behavior and expression of human papillomavirus (HPV) in patients with juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis, in an attempt to develop an effective molecular biological method to predict prognosis. We included 37 patients with juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis in the study group and 10 cases each of juvenile vocal cord polyps and juvenile normal laryngeal mucosa as the control group. We detected HPV by immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization, identified the virus type, and measured HPV-DNA content using a computer-assisted, color pathological image-analysis system. Additionally, we conducted a retrospective study with regard to the patients' clinical history to evaluate the prognosis. The data of the 2 groups were compared and statistically analyzed, including a correlation with prognosis. In the study group, 67.3% (25/37) were positive for HPV-Ag by immunocytochemistry; whereas 53.2%, 45.8%, and 25.4% were positive for HPV6b-DNA, HPV11-DNA, and HPV6b+11-DNA, respectively, by in situ hybridization. HPV was not detected in the control group. There was a significant difference between two groups (P laryngeal papilloma (JLP) and that HPV6b-positivity can be used as an index to predict the development and outcome of JLP.

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to examine recidivists’ and non-recidivists’ differences in characteristics of the psychosocial functioning after a treatment in a Disciplinary Centre for Juveniles in Sarajevo Canton, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The research was conducted on a sample of 131 juvenile delinquents adjudicated with the educational measure of referral to the juvenile disciplinary centre. The statistical analysis was performed in the SPSS 17.0 program package. The differences between recidivists and non-recidivists were measured using Mann-Whitney test on all variables. A group of four variables were compared by: (a school factors, (b family factors, (c spare time activities and peer relationships and (d personality and behaviour of juveniles. The results have shown that risk factors are more pronounced in recidivists in all four areas of the psychosocial functioning. The largest difference is in the areas related to spare time activities and peer-relationships, as well as family functioning. The results indicate that the intensified treatment should focus on these areas in order to prevent recidivism.

    2015-02-01

    To date, research on juvenile sexual offender recidivism has tended to focus on risk factors rather than protective factors. Therefore, very little is known about protective factors in the population of juveniles who sexually offended. The aim of the present study was to examine the impact of protective factors on non-recidivism in a sample of accused juveniles who sexually offended (N = 71) in a mean follow-up period of 47.84 months. Protective factors were measured with the Protective Factor Scale of the Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth (SAVRY), and the Structured Assessment of PROtective Factors for violence risk (SAPROF). Criminal charges served as recidivism data. The internal scale of the SAPROF, in particular, yielded moderate predictive accuracy for the absence of violent and general recidivism, though not for the absence of sexual recidivism. No protective factor of the SAVRY did reveal predictive accuracy regarding various types of the absence of recidivism. Furthermore, protective factors failed to achieve any significant incremental predictive accuracy beyond that captured by the SAVRY risk factors alone. The potential therapeutic benefit of protective factors in juvenile sexual offender treatment is discussed. © The Author(s) 2014.

    Optimizing a feeding regime is essential for establishing juvenile mussels (Utterbackia imbecillus) as a standard toxicity test organism. Although very little is known about their dietary requirements, these juveniles appear to derive adequate nourishment for survival and growth in batch culture from a diet of the green alga Chlorella vulgaris and Ankistrodesmus falcatus. However, results of previous studies have suggested that mussel diet in culture prior to exposure influences the sensitivity of these organisms to aqueous copper and cadmium exposure. Dietary components included three species of live algae (A. falcatus, C. vulgaris, and Scenedesmus quadricauda) and a suspension of rehydrated, dried Spirulina sp. Less than 24-hr laboratory cultured juveniles were fed all four components or combinations of three algal species daily to determine which mixtures promoted maximal growth. Preliminary data showed growth of control mussels receiving no food was comparable to those organisms fed all four algal species in combination. The greatest increase in shell length of juvenile mussels over 6 days was obtained with the tri-algal combination of A. falcatus, C. vulgaris, and S. quadricauda. The mixture resulting in the least growth included A. falcatus, S. quadricauda, and dried Spirulina sp.

  18. Fitness Consequences of Boldness in Juvenile and Adult Largemouth Bass.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ballew, Nicholas G; Mittelbach, Gary G; Scribner, Kim T

    2017-04-01

    To date, most studies investigating the relationship between personality traits and fitness have focused on a single measure of fitness (such as survival) at a specific life stage. However, many personality traits likely have multiple effects on fitness, potentially operating across different functional contexts and stages of development. Here, we address the fitness consequences of boldness, under seminatural conditions, across life stages and functional contexts in largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides). Specifically, we report the effect of boldness on (1) juvenile survivorship in an outdoor pond containing natural prey and predators and (2) adult reproductive success in three outdoor ponds across three reproductive seasons (years). Juvenile survival was negatively affected by boldness, with bolder juveniles having a lower probability of survival than shyer juveniles. In contrast, bolder adult male bass had greater reproductive success than their shyer male counterparts. Female reproductive success was not affected by boldness. These findings demonstrate that boldness can affect fitness differently across life stages. Further, boldness was highly consistent across years and significantly heritable, which suggests that boldness has a genetic component. Thus, our results support theory suggesting that fitness trade-offs across life stages may contribute to the maintenance of personality variation within populations.

    2016-08-01

    The early life stage of long-lived species is critical to the viability of population, but is poorly understood. Longitudinal studies are needed to test whether juveniles are less efficient foragers than adults as has been hypothesized. We measured changes in the diving behaviour of 17 one-year-old king penguins Aptenodytes patagonicus at Crozet Islands (subantartic archipelago) during their first months at sea, using miniaturized tags that transmitted diving activity in real time. We also equipped five non-breeder adults with the same tags for comparison. The data on foraging performance revealed two groups of juveniles. The first group made shallower and shorter dives that may be indicative of early mortality while the second group progressively increased their diving depths and durations, and survived the first months at sea. This surviving group of juveniles required the same recovery durations as adults, but typically performed shallower and shorter dives. There is thereby a relationship between improved diving behaviour and survival in young penguins. This long period of improving diving performance in the juvenile life stage is potentially a critical period for the survival of deep avian divers and may have implications for their ability to adapt to environmental change. © 2016 The Authors.

    Full Text Available This article is a substantive analysis tracing the legal, philosophical, social, historical, jurisprudence and political backgrounds of juvenile law, which is an outgrowth of the so-calledProgressive movement - a popular social and political movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. I also trace how this socio-political cause célèbre became a fixture in Americanculture and society due to existential child labor abuses which progressive intellectuals used as a pretext to codify juvenile law in federal law and in statutory law in all 50 states by 1925. Moreover the dubious social science and Machiavellian political efforts that created the juvenile justice system out of whole cloth has done much more harm to the Constitution and to the children it was mandated to protect than any of the Progressive ideas initially envisioned rooted in Positive Law (separation of law and morals. Finally, I present am impassioned argument for congressional repeal of all juvenile case law and statutes because they are rooted in Positive Law, contrary to Natural Law (integration of law and morals, the original intent of the constitutional Framers and are therefore patently unconstitutional.

    The aim of this study was to describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of juvenile psoriatic arthritis (JpsA) in children in order to facilitate early diagnosis and proper management. Two pediatric radiologists retrospectively reviewed in consensus a total of 37 abnormal MRI examinations from 31 pediatric patients (nine boys, 22 girls; age range 1-17 years; mean age 9.4 years) who had a definite diagnosis of JpsA and underwent MRI. Each MRI was evaluated for synovium abnormality (thickening and enhancement), joint effusion (small, moderate, and large), bone marrow abnormality (edema, enhancement, and location of abnormality), soft tissue abnormality (edema, enhancement, atrophy, and fatty infiltration), tendon abnormality (thickening, edema, tendon sheath fluid, and enhancement), and articular abnormality (joint space narrowing and erosion). The distribution of abnormal MRI findings among the six categories for the 37 MRI examinations was evaluated. The number of abnormal MRI findings for each MRI examination was assessed. Age at MRI examination and all six categories of abnormal MRI findings according to gender were evaluated. There were a total 96 abnormal MRI findings noted on 37 abnormal MRI examinations from 31 pediatric patients. The 37 abnormal MRI examinations included MRI of the hand (n=8), knee (n = 8), ankle (n = 5), pelvis (n = 5), temporomandibular joint (n = 4), wrist (n = 3), foot (n = 2), elbow (n = 1), and shoulder (n = 1). Twenty-eight diffuse synovial thickening and/or enhancement were the most common MRI abnormality (29.2%). Joint effusion comprised 22 abnormal MRI findings (22.9%). There were 16 abnormal MRI bone marrow edema and/or enhancement findings (16.7%), and in seven (7.3%) the edema involved non-articular sites. Soft tissue abnormality manifested as edema and/or enhancement constituted 14 abnormal MRI findings (14.5%). There were ten MRI abnormalities (10.4%) involving tendons. Articular abnormality seen as joint space

    2017-07-01

    Background: Physical growth of children and adolescents depends on the interaction of genetic and environmental factors e.g. diet and living conditions. Aim: We aim to discuss the influence of socioeconomic situation, using income inequality and GDP per capita as indicators, on body height, body weight and the variability of height and weight in infants and juveniles. Material and methods: We re-analyzed data from 439 growth studies on height and weight published during the last 35 years. We added year- and country-matched GDP per capita (in current US$) and the Gini coefficient for each study. The data were divided into two age groups: infants (age 2) and juveniles (age 7). We used Pearson correlation and principal component analysis to investigate the data. Results: Gini coefficient negatively correlated with body height and body weight in infants and juveniles. GDP per capita showed a positive correlation with height and weight in both age groups. In infants the standard deviation of height increases with increasing Gini coefficient. The opposite is true for juveniles. A correlation of weight variability and socioeconomic indicators is absent in infants. In juveniles the variability of weight increases with declining Gini coefficient and increasing logGDP per capita. Discussion: Poverty and income inequality are generally associated with poor growth in height and weight. The analysis of the within-population height and weight variations however, shows that the associations between wealth, income, and anthropometric parameters are very complex and cannot be explained by common wisdom. They point towards an independent regulation of height and weight.

  15. Exploration of Horizontal Information Transmission through Social Learning in Juvenile Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gaïane L. B. De Brabanter

    2017-11-01

    Full Text Available Although vertical (mother-to-offspring information transfer has been reported in dolphins, it is unclear whether horizontal information transfer takes place between peers of non-parental individuals. We hypothesized that horizontal information transmission takes place within juvenile social play-forage subgroups and within pairs of juveniles in the form of social learning, as a way for older juveniles to contribute to the further development of younger juveniles’ foraging skills. Since 1985, a long-term study in the Bahamas has involved the collection of underwater videos and sound recordings on the social structure of a resident community of free-ranging Atlantic spotted dolphins Stenella frontalis. Foraging behaviors of juvenile dolphins were analyzed in 24 independent foraging events recorded on video from 1994 to 2013. Forty-nine juveniles in total were observed, including eight individually identified juveniles foraging alone, eight individually identified juveniles foraging in pairs, and 33 juveniles foraging in eight subgroups of three or more dolphins. The comparison of older juveniles' behavior against younger juveniles' behavior in juvenile play-forage subgroups suggested the potential for horizontal transmission of information about prey location. However, we found no direct evidence for social learning or of teaching in pairs. This new information about wild Atlantic spotted dolphin social structure is a starting point in horizontal information transmission research and is important in terms of cognitive processes and welfare implications.

  16. Child maltreatment victimization by type in relation to criminal recidivism in juvenile offenders.

    van der Put, Claudia E; de Ruiter, Corine

    2016-02-05

    This study aimed to examine the relation between different types of child abuse victimization and criminal recidivism among juvenile offenders. Secondary analyses were conducted on data collected with the Washington State Juvenile Court Assessment and general recidivism. The sample consisted of female (n = 3502) and male (n = 10,111) juvenile offenders. For male juvenile offenders, neglect and physical abuse victimization were significantly but rather weakly associated with both general and violent recidivism. For female juvenile offenders, neglect and physical abuse were weakly associated with general recidivism, but not with violent recidivism. Sexual abuse was not related to either general or violent recidivism in both male and female juvenile offenders. Most associations between dynamic (treatable) risk domains and recidivism were stronger in male juvenile offenders than in female juvenile offenders. In addition, most risk domains were more strongly related to general recidivism than to violent felony recidivism. For male juvenile offenders, neglect victimization was uniquely related to general recidivism whereas physical abuse victimization was uniquely related to violent recidivism, over and above dynamic risk factors for recidivism. For female juvenile offenders none of the maltreatment variables were uniquely related to general or violent felony recidivism. Childhood experiences of neglect and physical abuse predict reoffending in male juvenile offenders, pointing at a possible need to address these in risk management interventions.

    Full Text Available A leucemia mielomonocítica juvenil (LMMJ é uma doença rara, que representa de 2%a 3% de todas as leucemias pediátricas. É uma doença clonal de células da linhagem mieloide, que apresenta características de mieloproliferação e de displasia. Os sinais e os sintomas são resultantes da infiltração de células monocíticas malignas em órgãos não hematopoéticos. Os sintomas mais comuns são febre, tosse, infecção, fraqueza, palidez, linfadenopatia, hepatoesplenomegalia, lesões cutâneas e manifestações hemorrágicas. Como a LMMJ exibe um curso clínico muito agressivo e responde pobremente à quimioterapia, o transplante de células-tronco hematopoéticas é a única modalidade terapêutica curativa. Neste estudo, relatamos o caso de um paciente do sexo masculino, com um ano e dez meses de idade, que compareceu na emergência do Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre por apresentar febre, com diagnóstico prévio de mononucleose feito em outra Instituição. A apresentação clínica, em conjunto com os achados laboratoriais, permitiu o diagnóstico correto. O paciente foi tratado com quimioterapia e submetido a transplante de células-tronco hematopoéticas.Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML is a rare hematopoietic malignancy, which accounts for 2 to 3% of all pediatric leukemia.

  18. Race and the fragility of the legal distinction between juveniles and adults.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aneeta Rattan

    Full Text Available Legal precedent establishes juvenile offenders as inherently less culpable than adult offenders and thus protects juveniles from the most severe of punishments. But how fragile might these protections be? In the present study, simply bringing to mind a Black (vs. White juvenile offender led participants to view juveniles in general as significantly more similar to adults in their inherent culpability and to express more support for severe sentencing. Indeed, these differences in participants' perceptions of this foundational legal precedent distinguishing between juveniles and adults accounted for their greater support for severe punishment. These results highlight the fragility of protections for juveniles when race is in play. Furthermore, we suggest that this fragility may have broad implications for how juveniles are seen and treated in the criminal justice system.
