    hace años" en España. Finalmente la exposición pormenorizada y comentada de los pronunciamientos judiciales de los casos relacionados con estas lesiones de los últimos años, permiten concluir que, a pesar del creciente número de sentencias que hacen mención a las UPP, son simbólicas las que con rotundidad pronuncian como causa de éstas una deficiencia en los cuidados, negligencia o mala praxis y llama la atención las raquíticas condenas e indemnizaciones. Tal vez el mismo e histórico espíritu de devaluación de estas lesiones, presente en ámbitos profesionales y en la sociedad en general, se ha trasladado a la judicatura, especialmente de la mano de peritos y/o forenses, no alcanzando a cifrar la dimensión real del problema (pérdida de salud y calidad de vida y las fatales consecuencias de las UPP (incluida la muerte por esa causa y olvidando que son previsibles casi en la totalidad de las situaciones.Over the past few years, Spain has been experiencing a significant increase in questionable health care practices. During the long process which aims to dismiss pressure ulcer (PU as a banal, especially inevitable process due to being closely related to old age and terminal illness, it is becoming apparent that patients and their families are now reacting, complaining and suing for lack of prevention or inadequate treatment, something that has already been happening for years in other countries with similar cultural and economic characteristics. A revision on the impact and the way the pressure ulcer issue is being legally dealt with in our surrounding countries (United Kingdom, United States, Germany... from the point of view of penal law, civil law or through disciplinary procedures, has made a very noticeable difference in the way professionals, institutions and people behave with regards to this subject.

    Full Text Available O tolueno está presente em muitos produtos de uso doméstico e industrial e é o principal solvente envolvido no abuso de substâncias e na exposição ocupacional. O problema mais grave no estudo de patologias relacionadas ao tolueno é que este está geralmente associado, em suas preparações comerciais, a outras substâncias. O potencial tóxico do tolueno foi abordado nos seguintes aspectos: parâmetros farmacológicos; características físico-químicas; exposição; estudos clínicos; diagnóstico; pesquisa experimental; tolerância e dependência; efeitos agudos e crônicos; neurotoxicidade; teratogenicidade; doenças psiquiátricas; carcinogenicidade e tratamento. Conclui-se ser de grande importância e urgência que se realizem estudos clínicos com amostras maiores para definição mais precisa das conseqüências do uso crônicoToluene, present in many industrial and domestic products, is the main solvent involved in solvent abuse and occupational exposure. The main problem in studying toluene-related pathologies is the fact that it is frequently combined with other substances. This review focuses on its potential toxicity. The following subjects are discussed: pharmacologic parameters; physico-chemical features; exposure; clinical trials; experimental research; diagnosis; tolerance and dependence; acute and chronic effects; neurotoxicity; teratogenicity; psychiatric disorders; carcinogenicity; and treatment. It is concluded that is important more research on larger population samples with a view to better definition of the consequences.of chronic use should be undertaken.

    Full Text Available Las investigaciones en el contexto agrícola, en los últimos años, se han dirigido a buscar soluciones donde los microorganismos del suelo juegan un papel protagónico, pues contribuyen a la recuperación de los agroecosistemas, permiten la sustitución parcial o total de los agentes químicos, además de su bajo costo de producción y la posibilidad de fabricarse a partir de recursos locales renovables. En Cuba y otros países, se han dado pasos acelerados para poner en práctica el uso de los biofertilizantes, entre los que se encuentran los hongos micorrízicos arbusculares (HMA, resultando numerosos los beneficios que le reportan estos hongos a las plantas que colonizan, dentro de los cuales se destacan el incremento de los rendimientos, las mejoras nutricionales, protección contra patógenos de la raíz y disminución de daños causados por factores medioambientales. Lo expuesto evidencia la importancia económica y ecológica de dichos hongos, de ahí que en los últimos años se le ha prestado especial atención a los estudios básicos concernientes a esta interacción simbiótica, donde los aspectos bioquímico-moleculares son claves en la comprensión del diálogo estrecho y coordinado que se establece entre ambos simbiontes, cuyo intercambio define la compatibilidad funcional y eficacia de la simbiosis como tal.

    Full Text Available O coentro é uma hortaliça amplamente consumida no Brasil como condimento, de grande importância socio-econômica. Problemas relacionados ao baixo vigor de sementes e ao estabelecimento da cultura são uma constante nesta espécie. No presente trabalho 11 lotes comerciais de sementes de coentro das cultivares Verdão, Americano Gigante, Tapacurá, Tabocas, Palmeira e Asteca foram analisados quanto a pureza, germinação, vigor e qualidade sanitária. Em outro estudo, avaliaram-se os efeitos das temperaturas de 15; 20; 25; 30 e 35ºC sobre a germinação das sementes das mesmas cultivares do experimento anterior e mais a cultivar Verdão HV. Houve variação relativamente pequena da germinação entre os lotes e com valores superiores ao padrão nacional para comercialização de sementes. Apenas o lote 1 apresentou pureza abaixo do referido padrão. A qualidade das sementes de coentro comercializadas pelas empresas de sementes no país é, geralmente, satisfatória. Quanto à sanidade, foi detectada a presença de alguns fungos de importância para a cultura do coentro, como Alternaria alternata e Alternaria radicina, com índices de associação elevados. Em um lote, foi detectada a presença de Alternaria dauci. Verificou-se efeito significativo da temperatura, de cultivar e da interação entre a cultivar e temperatura na germinação das sementes. Temperaturas entre 15 e 25ºC proporcionaram maior germinação, enquanto as temperaturas mais elevadas foram prejudiciais. As cultivares 'Verdão HV' e 'Palmeira' germinaram satisfatoriamente a 30ºC. Praticamente não ocorreu germinação a 35ºC para todas as cultivares avaliadas.Coriander is a vegetable crop with large consumption in Brazil, of high social and economic importance. Problems related to low seed vigor and cultivation are reported in this crop.

    Full Text Available Por el tratado de Utrecht de 1713 el Asiento de esclavos pasaría a manos de Inglaterra, cuya soberana concedería su desarrollo práctico a la Compañía del Mar del Sur, la cual, con muchos altibajos, lo conservaría hasta la denominada Guerra de la Oreja de Jenkins o guerra del Asiento que estalló en 1739, enfrentando a la corona española y británica durante un período de casi diez años, hasta la paz de Aquisgrán de 1748 y que desembocaría, en 1750, en un tratado particular con Inglaterra que llevaría a la culminación definitiva del Asiento. En relación con este tema hay un aspecto, apenas reconocido hasta ahora en otros trabajos de investigación históricos y que se refiere al importante papel que desempeñó en el desenvolvimiento del Asiento la contabilidad, o mejor las cuentas que, de forma reiterada, se solicitaban a la Compañía del Mar de Sur por parte de la Corona española, en cuyo negocio participaba con una cuarta parte y que, por el articulado del Asiento, estaba la Compañía obligada a presentar periódicamente. Este conflicto de carácter contable se unió a otros muchos que, finalmente, desembocaron, como tendremos ocasión de analizar, en la denominada “Guerra de la Oreja de Jenkins” en 1739, conflicto que ha sido analizado por algunos historiadores, entre los que destacamos a Béthencourt Massieu (1989 y 1998 por ser de los pocos que reconocen que, a las causas políticas y diplomáticas que promovieron los conflictos entre las dos naciones, hay que añadir “el de las frecuentes peticiones de cuentas por Felipe V y el pago de sus beneficios conforme a los plazos señalados por los tratados” (1998, p. 184.En este trabajo de investigación analizamos algunas de las causas que motivaron el conflicto entre ambas naciones, poniendo un énfasis especial en los aspectos económicos y contables derivados de las relaciones comerciales e intereses económicos que la monarquía española tenía en el Asiento de

    The present essay analyses a new type of economic intervention of the Brazilian State, by means of overcoming his interventionist position with the opening to private wealth. This creates the need of State fiscalization, which is done by creating the regulatory agencies. Focussing the current regulatory model, the role ANP plays is distinguished in its regulatory, fiscalization and fomenter of gas-related activities functions, established as federal scope. Equally important is the analysis of state sphere activities and guardianship assigned by the Constitution, in its article 25, para. 2nd, to states that now need forensic basement to be able to explore the local service of canalized gas. In this context, a comparative model of the role played by the state regulatory agencies has been created concerning the states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. It is, therefore, perceivable, by means of this study, the necessity to review the current regulatory model and legal dispositions, which, because of its lack of peculiarity, leaves gaps that will be filled in by this regulatory agent.

O não oferecimento por parte do poder público de uma rede de ensino de qualidade e universal, a concentração de renda, os baixos salários, o desemprego e a desestruturação das famílias são fatores que vêm afetando diretamente a trajetória de vida de crianças e adolescentes, abrigando-os a inserirem-se precocemente no mercado de trabalho, no qual seus direitos como "cidadãos em condições especiais de desenvolvimento" são seguidamente vilipendiados. O presente artigo objetiva fornecer subsídios para a erradicação do trabalho infantil e para a adequação da atividade laboral juvenil ao preconizado pela legislação brasileira. Para isso, procura levantar na Constituição Federal, na Consolidação das Leis Trabalhistas e no Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente as situações em que estas atividades são ­ ou não ­ permitidas, dirimindo as possíveis divergências existentes entre estes instrumentos jurídicos e analisando seus aspectos sociais.Children and youth are currently one of the population segments most heavily jeopardized by the worsening of social, economic, and cultural problems in Brazil.

This article aims to provide support for the eradication of child labor and the adaptation of adolescent labor to the terms of the pertinent Brazilian legislation.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En este presente artículo ofrecemos por primera vez una sistematización sobre la legislación existente en torno a la trata de indios americanos con destino a los mercados esclavistas de la Península Ibérica. Se trata sin duda de un trabajo sumamente novedoso que aporta nueva luz a un aspecto de la Historia Moderna de España que ha pasado casi desapercibido hasta la fecha para la historiografía más reciente. La conclusión principal que se puede extraer de este trabajo es la negativa de la Corona -salvo en los dubitativos momentos iniciales- a que se trajesen indios esclavos a la Península. No obstante, esta legislación prohibitiva sólo sirvió para que los envíos se ralentizaran sin erradicar totalmente una trata que siempre encontró las formas de continuar de una manera más o menos fraudulenta.ABSTRACT: For the first time the present article offers us a systematization about the existing laws concerning the American indians trade with the Iberian Peninsula slaves markets. Undoubtledly, it consists of an extremely original work which casts light on one aspect of the Spanish early modern history that has gone unnoticed to the recent historiography. The main conclusion to be drawn from this work is the Crown's denial for the Indian slaves to be brought, except for the doubts arisen at the beginning. This prohibitive laws only served to slow down the slave shipment without eradicate this practice that always founds to continue new forms, more or less fraudulent.

Yet, the underlying construct, which relates to use of scientifically-based knowledge and research to practice, has been with us for a long time. This analytic paper provides an overview of research utilization models developed and used in nursing and other fields, highlighting some of their features. The paper then reviews research utilization and application issues at the institutional level, highlighting the importance of organizational mechanisms for enabling optimum research use and application, rather than relying on individual nurses. It then describes ways in which research can be used at the societal level in the formation of healthy public policies, using the United States as a case study. A number of recommendations are then presented for organizations and the profession at large in a global context.En años recientes, la literatura de enfermería a nivel mundial ha exigido enfaticamente la práctica basada en la evidencia.

    Full Text Available Implante coclear é a melhor forma de correção da surdez profunda nas formas congênitas. As crianças "implantáveis" são tidas como "vulneráveis", recaindo a decisão de se implantar sobre os responsáveis. Pelo Código Penal Brasileiro, o surdo-mudo pode ter sua imputabilidade reduzida. Existem controvérsias bioéticas a respeito do implante, pois parcela dos representantes da chamada "comunidade de surdos" vê nele uma maneira de "dizimar" sua cultura e valores intrínsecos. OBJETIVOS: Discutir em termos bioéticos a validade de se realizar implante coclear em criança, analisando a sua vulnerabilidade e os aspectos socioculturais do problema, e discutir aspectos médico-legais a respeito da imputabilidade do surdo-mudo. MATERIAL E MÉTODOS: Forma de estudo: pesquisou-se o tema nas bases de dados Medline e Lilacs e a análise ética foi baseada na Bioética Principialista. RESULTADOS: O implante coclear é a melhor opção terapêutica para correção da surdez profunda, estando moralmente justificado. Quanto à imputabilidade penal do surdo-mudo é necessário analisar seu grau de entendimento e autodeterminação à época dos fatos a ele imputados. CONCLUSÕES: O implante coclear é moralmente válido. Sua aplicação deverá ser analisada em cada caso, cabendo ao otorrinolaringologista a responsabilidade ética pela indicação, após assinatura de termo de consentimento pelos responsáveis pela criança.Cochlear implants are the best treatment for congenital profound deafness. Pediatric candidates to implantation are seen as vulnerable citizens, and the decision of implanting cochlear devices is ultimately in the hands of their parents/guardians. The Brazilian Penal Code dictates that deaf people may enjoy diminished criminal capacity. Many are the bioethical controversies around cochlear implants, as representatives from the deaf community have seen in them a means of decimating their culture and intrinsic values. OBJECTIVE: This

    Full Text Available La medicina basada en la evidencia no ha podido demostrar todavía las ventajas del tratamiento quirúrgico sobre el conservador en este tipo de pacientes, que presentan lumbalgia y ciática crónica de origen de generativo. Los conflictos de intereses, personales, profesionales o económicos, están planeando continuamente en la patología motivo de nuestro estudio. La reputación de algunos médicos es un valor añadido que algunas compañías desean tener y relacionarla con sus productos. La formación médica continuada es otro aspecto donde los conflictos de intereses pueden estar involucrados, ya que por cada dólar invertido se obtienen beneficios que casi cuadruplican la inversión. Los pacientes, generalmente dejan la decisión sobre la cirugía y la técnica a emplear en manos de sus médicos, sobrestimando los resultados que se obtendrán. Se ha detectado una importante variabilidad en la práctica médica en este tipo de operaciones, entre países similares y entre regiones dentro del mismo país. Los pacientes mayores de 65 años, en ocasiones, asumen muchos riesgos quirúrgicos, bien por el tipo de operación que se les propone, sin emplear las nuevas tecnologías de la cirugía mínimamente invasiva, y sin utilizar adecuadamente el potencial de las técnicas intervencionistas antiálgicas. De la misma forma, asumen un riesgo elevado de complicaciones derivadas del uso de los opiáceos a largo plazo en caso de no ser operados. Los conflictos medicolegales y bioéticos están aflorando cada vez con mayor insistencia en los medios de comunicación y en las revistas especializadas que cuentan con acceso libre en internet. Habrá que prepararse para una avalancha de demandas judiciales que caerá sobre el sistema sanitario en el que trabajamos todos con diferentes grados de implicación. Las instituciones para las que trabajamos y nuestros seguros privados, subsidiariamente, tendrán que hacer frente a todas estas demandas. El

    Full Text Available ResumenLos perfiles de morbimortalidad de un país se encuentran ligados a patrones de comportamientos que pueden ser modificados, y que cualquier persona puede adoptar conductas saludables para contribuir a su bienestar. Aunque sea difícil encontrar cualquier cosa que no tendría ningún impacto en salud, en el repertorio de la conducta humana hay algunos hábitos considerados como factores de riesgo. En esta revisión se han considerado el consumo legal e ilegal de sustancias, las relaciones sexuales y la orientación sexual debido al impacto de estos patrones en salud en los adolescentes. Es bien sabido que los grupos sociales, las presiones académicas, la falta de educacion, entre otros aspectos, han determinado en gran medida la adopción de conductas o estilos de vida que no son saludables. Para todos los comportamientos de riesgo las estrategias de promoción y prevención son necesarias y por ello debe vincularse además de la escuela, la familia, los compañeros de los adolescentes, y el entorno socio cultural en el que estos se desenvuelven, el papel de los medios masivos de comunicación por la trascendental influencia que ejercen sobre la comunidad deben ser tenidos muy en cuenta a la hora de promover comportamientos saludables.

    Full Text Available O bullying é um fenômeno devastador podendo vir a afetar a auto-estima e a saúde mental dos adolescentes. Geralmente ocorre quando o adolescente é mais suscetível ou vulnerável às agressões verbais ou morais que lhes causam angústia e dor, principalmente quando ocorrido em ambiente escolar traduzindo-se como uma forma de exclusão social. Pode desencadear alguns problemas de saúde tais como a anorexia, bulimia, depressão, ansiedade e até mesmo o suicídio. A enfermagem, pautada com princípios de prevenir agravos de diversos males, preocupa-se também com esta intercorrência traumática na adolescência. O objetivo deste estudo foi identificar sentimentos que possam estar relacionados com o bullying em adolescentes alunos de 5ª a 8ª séries. Tratou-se de uma pesquisa descritiva de abordagem qualitativa, realizada em uma escola de segmento religioso conveniada com o estado. A coleta de dados ocorreu auxiliada por entrevistas gravadas, posteriormente transcritas e submetidas à análise temática. Os resultados mostraram que os sentimentos relacionados ao fenômeno são múltiplos e variados, sendo categorizados como aspectos de caráter positivo, aspectos de caráter negativo e aspectos de caráter necessário.

Prior to this workshop I had worked more on the relationship between cartography, geography and boundaries than specifically on ice. Listening to...

A partir de una cobertura espacial del estado Sucre, Venezuela, a escala de 1:100.000 se desarrolló un Sistema de Información Geográfica (SIG que incluyó: i una cobertura de los centros poblados con el número de casos anuales de malaria desde 1986 hasta 1999; ii una base de datos ambientales de precipitación, temperatura y humedad relativa; iii una base cartográfica digital derivada de la topografía con hidrografía, vialidad y curvas de nivel equidistantes cada 40 m; iv una base de datos del hábitat del vector Anopheles aquasalis con la ubicación de criaderos, tipos de vegetación asociada, parámetros fisicoquímicos y otros parámetros ambientales; y v las coberturas resultantes del modelo digital del terreno, elevación y pendiente. El análisis espacial permitió elaborar el modelo de distribución de probabilidades de riesgo malárico, con base en el número de casos de malaria, por año estudiado, y su relación con elementos de la ecología de paisajes como altura, pendiente, ubicación de centros poblados y vialidad. El empleo de modelos generados por la integración de información geoespacial y ecológica en un SIG contribuye a solucionar problemas sociales de salud pública.

  17. Chá: aspectos relacionados à qualidade e perspectivas Tea: aspects related to the quality and prospects

    Full Text Available O chá preto é uma das bebidas mais consumidas no mundo. Essa bebida é feita a partir da infusão de folhas processadas de Camellia sinensis, que é cultivada em mais de 30 países, tendo grande importância socioeconômica. Estudos sugerem que o chá tem efeito protetor contra diversos tipos de câncer e doenças cardiovasculares devido à presença de polifenóis denominados catequinas, que são oxidadas enzimaticamente durante o processamento das folhas, gerando uma mistura constituída principalmente de teaflavinas, teasinensinas e tearubiginas. A produção mundial de chá tem aumentado mais do que o consumo, provocando redução do preço que, juntamente com o aumento no custo de produção, implica a necessidade de alta produtividade e qualidade. Apesar disso, ainda não foram estabelecidos critérios precisos e eficientes para predizer a qualidade do chá a partir das folhas, bem como quais práticas agronômicas contribuem para o aumento da qualidade. No Brasil, a cultura do chá se concentra no Vale do Ribeira, em São Paulo (SP, sendo quase toda produção exportada. Apesar de o produto brasileiro não ser de alta qualidade, tem conseguido bons preços no mercado internacional. A produção brasileira, a área de produção e o número de indústrias de chá vêm diminuindo ao longo dos últimos anos, o que demonstra a necessidade de investimentos.Black tea is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world and it is prepared by the infusion of water with processed leaves of Camellia sinensis, which is cultivated in more than 30 countries, assuming a great socioeconomic importance. Several studies suggest that tea has protective effects against cancer and cardiovascular disease, due to the presence of polyphenols called catechins, which are oxidized enzymatically during the processing of the black tea, generating a mixture consisting mainly of theaflavins, theasinensins and thearubigins. The world production of tea has increased more than the demand, causing a drop of the price which, together with the increase in cultivation costs has shown a need for high productivity and quality. Nevertheless, there is not yet an efficient and accurate criteria to predict the quality of tea and agronomic practices which contribute to the increase in quality. In Brazil, the culture of tea is concentrated in the Ribeira Valley - SP, and almost all the production is exported. Despite the Brazilian product is not of high quality, it has achieved good prices in the international market. The Brazilian production, the production area and the number of tea industries are decreasing in recent years, clearly indicating the need for investments.

    Full Text Available Se recolectaron y analizaron los registros meteorológicos de las estaciones que han funcionado recientemente en la Isla del Coco (1979-2005, Costa Rica, localiza en el Pacífico Tropical Oriental. Dichos registros se compararon con series de tiempo de los puntos de rejilla más cercanos a la isla de diferentes bases de datos de precipitación y de temperatura elaborados con datos compilados de estaciones medidoras en superficie, estimados de percepción remota y de modelos numéricos. Se encontró que durante enero, febrero y marzo, se dan las más bajas precipitaciones y que una intensa estación lluviosa tiene lugar de abril a diciembre, dentro de la cual se logra apreciar un mínimo relativo en julio y agosto. También se observó que de enero a marzo las temperaturas son mayores, y relativamente menores de junio a diciembre. Los resultados encontrados muestran que eventos cálidos (fríos del ENOS se relacionan con temporadas de lluvias o temperaturas superficiales por arriba (bajo de lo normal en la Isla del Coco. Estas relaciones pueden ser útiles en predicción climática ya que el evento asociado al ENOS antecede a la precipitación o la temperatura.Meteorological records from gauge stations that worked at the Isla del Coco (Coco's Island, Costa Rica, Eastern Tropical Pacific, were collected from 1979 to 2005. Those records were compared with time series of the grid points closest to the island obtained from different data bases. These data bases compile surface gauge stations, remote sensing and numerical modeling outputs. Records show that January, February and March reported the lowest precipitation accumulates, followed by an intense rainy season between April and December and a relative minimum in July-August. The warmest temperatures were observed from January to March, showing a small decrease from June to December. Results show that warm (cold ENSO events tend to be associated with above (below normal precipitation and temperature at Coco's Island. These relationships could be used in climate prediction, mainly because the ENSO event leads the rainfall/temperature ones.

  19. Defining Legal Moralism

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Thaysen, Jens Damgaard

    2015-01-01

    This paper discusses how legal moralism should be defined. It is argued that legal moralism should be defined as the position that “For any X, it is always a pro tanto reason for justifiably imposing legal regulation on X that X is morally wrong (where “morally wrong” is not conceptually equivalent...... to “harmful”)”. Furthermore, a distinction between six types of legal moralism is made. The six types are grouped according to whether they are concerned with the enforcement of positive or critical morality, and whether they are concerned with criminalising, legally restricting, or refraining from...... legally protecting morally wrong behaviour. This is interesting because not all types of legal moralism are equally vulnerable to the different critiques of legal moralism that have been put forth. Indeed, I show that some interesting types of legal moralism have not been criticised at all....

    Abortion is an important means of family planning, especially when contraception is unavailable or when it fails. Morbidity associated with legal abortion is low, though illegal abortion is a common cause of maternal mortality. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Poland, and the German Demogratic Republic all have laws legalizing abortion. Legalized abortion is the surest method of population control and should be promoted if the moral and religious objections can be overcome. PMID:12255647

Objetivos específicos: Identificar as características individuais e comportamentos da saúde sexual dos participantes, prévios à pesquisa; descrever sentimentos, autoeficácia, barreiras, benefícios e influências em relação aos comportamentos importantes de ser modificados; construir um plano de ação acordado com o indivíduo em relação aos comportamentos. Métodos: Estudo qualitativo realizado em 2014 com 14 pessoas por meio de entrevista semiestruturada em um serviço especializado de Maceió/AL. O Modelo de Pender foi utilizado como referencial teórico-metodológico. Resultados: Quatro categorias apontaram aspectos comportamentais sexuais-afetivos-relacionais - o (não uso do preservativo nas relações sexuais e a responsabilidade voltada para si e para o outro; a suspensão/restrição da vida sexual e a ausência de relacionamentos afetivos; o gênero, as relações de poder e a saúde sexual de mulheres com HIV; o fortalecimento da vida sexual e do afeto relacional. Conclusão: A soropositividade se mostrou como uma situação em que comportamentos são repensados; contudo os desejos de mudança comportamental aparecem permeados pelo estigma e pela falta de apoio para a tomada de decisões. Este estudo sinaliza o modelo aplicado como mais uma ferramenta útil para enfermeiros e demais profissionais.

    Full Text Available A saliva total é um complexo de secreções multiglandulares composto de fluido gengival, células epiteliais descamadas, microrganismos, produtos do metabolismo bacteriano, resíduos alimentares, leucócitos, muco da cavidade nasal e da faringe. A saliva possui diversas funções, incluindo reparação tecidual, tamponamento, proteção, digestão, gustação, ação antimicrobiana, manutenção da integridade do dente e sistema de defesa antioxidante. A redução do fluxo salivar (hipossalivação é um distúrbio comum, e estima-se que cerca de 20% da população geral tenham esta alteração. A hipossalivação pode ser decorrente de diabetes mellitus, hipotireoidismo, desidratação, comprometimento do parênquima glandular por processos infecciosos, doenças granulomatosas ou condições autoimunes e inflamatórias (como a síndrome de Sjögren e a artrite reumatoide, radioterapia da região cefálica e/ou cervical, bem como pode estar associada a distúrbios do humor, efeitos adversos ocasionados pelo uso de algumas medicações ou, ainda, ser de causa idiopática. As terapias convencionais para o tratamento da redução do fluxo salivar, com o uso de sialogogos gustatórios e químicos, ainda apresentam restrições. Contudo, novas alternativas têm mostrado grande perspectiva no tratamento deste problema. Diagnosticar um paciente como hipossalivador crônico é um desafio na prática clínica, e os métodos de avaliação do fluxo salivar são pouco conhecidos pelos reumatologistas. A avaliação seriada do fluxo salivar é importante para o correto diagnóstico e prognóstico de determinadas condições bucais e sistêmicas. Esta revisão aborda alguns aspectos relacionados à função da saliva, às consequências da hipossalivação e aos métodos de medição da taxa de fluxo salivar, conceitos úteis na prática diária do reumatologista.

  17. Aspectos relacionados aos efeitos da desigualdade de renda na saúde: mecanismos contextuais Issues regarding the effects on health of income inequality: contextual mechanisms

    2010-08-01

    Full Text Available O Brasil é um dos países mais desiguais em distribuição de renda e a influência desse fator na saúde das pessoas é controversa. Este artigo revisou a metodologia para estudos contextuais e mecanismos de ação que podem explicar o efeito contextual da desigualdade de renda na saúde. O estudo de efeitos contextuais necessita de teorias multiníveis bem formuladas que identifiquem o papel de cada variável no modelo, e o nível de agregação ideal das variáveis contextuais. Foram identificadas quatro explicações: (1 artefato estatístico; (2 comparação social;(3 subinvestimento público; (4 capital social. A contribuição relativa de cada um desses mecanismos não está ainda bem avaliada. Concluímos que a existência de diferentes mecanismos de ação pode explicar parte da heterogeneidade dos resultados. Outra explicação é que a desigualdade de renda pode captar outros construtos, como estratificação social ou políticas públicas e, em alguns casos, pode não ser um bom marcador de tais construtos. Estudos com maior poder de estabelecimento de relação causal são necessários. Uma possibilidade é a avaliação do impacto de políticas de intervenção direcionadas para redistribuição de renda.Brazil is one of the most unequal countries in income distribution. The influence of this factor on people's health is controversial. This article reviews the contextual effects and possible pathways linking income inequality to health. Contextual effect studies need well-developed multilevel theories, identifying the roles of variables in the explaining model, especially the role of individual level variables and the level of aggregation of contextual variables. Four explanations for the relationship between income inequality and health were identified: (1 statistical artifact; (2 social comparison; (3 underinvestment in social police; (4 social capital. The relative contribution of each of these mechanisms has not been well evaluated yet. We concluded that part of the heterogeneity found in the studies results may be explained by different pathways. Alternatively, income inequality may be a proxy for social stratification and less investment in public policies, but the Gini coefficient may be an unsuitable marker for such constructs in certain circumstances. More powerful designs to ascertain cause relationship should be applied. One possibility is to study the effect of intervention policies aimed at income redistribution.

    Tkebuchava Yekaterina Bezhanovna

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available This article considers the problems of financial and legal relationship and legal regulation. The financial activities of the state can not be carried out beyond the legal relations. Financial relations are expressed outwardly in the forms that are identified by the state as it is connected with the fact of its existence. With the help of law the state in the financial sphere determines and sets the types of budget revenues, taxation procedures, methods of currency use, etc. Administrative and legal regulation of financial relations is made up of such components as financial and legal relationships and legal regulation. This is why the concepts of "legal effect" and "legal regulation" come to the fore. According to the author, the term "legal regulation" and "legal effect" are not identical and have different meanings. Therefore it is necessary to distinguish between the "regulation" and "effect". This would eliminate naming the same thing with different words.

    The United States is a country of immigrants, our government having been formed by recent arrivals. This trend has continued throughout our history; according to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than 26 million immigrants have settled in the United States since 1970, and approximately one million new immigrants come to the United States each year. The immigrant population faces highly diverse health issues that states, cities, and counties must address, many of which pose significant legal and policy issues. Social, cultural, and linguistic factors complicate those challenges, as does the overlay of federal immigration and health policy. Two federal laws, the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 and Title VI of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, have affected immigrants in two very different ways. The former made it difficult for immigrants to qualify for publicly funded benefits. In contrast, Title VI made it easier for immigrants to obtain benefits by requiring federally funded service providers to offer translating services to persons with limited English language skills. Tuberculosis treatment is perhaps the most pressing health need among recent arrivals to the United States. Methods to slow down and hopefully eliminate this disease are underway, but a more comprehensive approach to not only tuberculosis but to immigrant health in general is needed. Indeed, it will benefit those directly affected by tuberculosis and will have serious implications for the entire population for generations to come. PMID:12508525

  12. Photovoltaic facilities, legal guidebook

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Important debates about the photovoltaic industry took place in 2009 and 2010 which have led to some evolutions of the French law having an economical impact on the arrangement of photovoltaic projects. The aim of this supplement to 'Droit de l'Environnement' journal is to answer some important questions at a time when the electricity market is not fully structured: the setting up of solar cell panels, town planing and property constraints; connection to the grid; project financing: power generation tariffs, partnership contract; the new legal framework set up in 2011: moratorium and new legal scheme; is 'green fiscality' still green and attractive? Settlement of disputes with the French government; actors reactions: authorities and professionals, opinion of an expert. (J.S.)

  13. Aspectos neurológicos da Pelagra

    Aluízio Marques

    1944-12-01

    Full Text Available São estudadas as várias questões gerais da Pelagra, nomeadamente os aspectos clínicos e etiopatogênicos. As formas clássicas se traduzem por manifestações intensificadas na época de maior insolação e evidenciadas por desordens da pele, do aparelho digestivo e sistema nervoso. Lembra o autor que, não obstante se deva ter em primeira conta esses aspectos do mal, na prática não se podem descuidar os oligossintomáticos, frustos e larvados. Com referência a tais formas, acredita ser de grande importância salientar os exemplares em que se não encontram sintomas cutâneos e configuram a "Pelagra sine Pelagra". A seguir, procura mostrar a freqüência dos aspectos neurológicos e psiquiátricos da condição e afirma que, se não se descrevem mais amiúde, é porque os médicos que se ocupam da Pelagra, descuidam de esmiuçar a existência de sinais e sintomas nervosos e mentais muito sutis que com freqüência passam despercebidos. Também recorda que os aspectos neurológicos da Pelagra não se encontram mais vezes, porque, via de regra, só se diagnostica a doença quando as lesões cutâneas são evidentes; de hábito deixam-se de lado os exemplares de "Pelagra Sine Pelagra", os de tradução clínica destituída de eritema ou outros fenômenos dermatológicos. Baseado na sua experiência, diz que as manifestações nervosas e mentais da Pelagra são em muito maior número do que é de supor-se. Para documentar essa afirmação, recorda a observação que tem feito em mais de uma oportunidade e os casos publicados pelos autores brasileiros; nem só os registados especialmente do ponto de vista neurológico mas, também, aqueles em que se não deu particular apreço a esse aspecto e em que a simples leitura das observações evidencia fenômenos neuro-psiquiátricos muito caraterísticos. Os quatro exemplares relatados no trabalho, foram colhidos do Serviço de Clínica Neurológica do Hospital Getúlio Vargas. Dois deles

  15. Cultural Dimensions Of Legal Discourse

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available Despite the intention for precision and accuracy, legal discourse is oftentimes complex, archaic and ambiguous - which gives rise to contentious interpretation. Moreover, little or no attention is paid to the cultural dimension of legal discourse, which plays a critical role in the translation and interpretation of legal texts, as well as in the application of law. This paper endeavours to illustrate the impact the culture, or, more precisely, legal culture has on the way legal texts are construed or translated and to present problems which arise in the interpretation, translation and application of law as a result of cultural diversities

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available This article considers the problems of financial and legal relationship and legal regulation. The financial activities of the state can not be carried out beyond the legal relations. Financial relations are expressed outwardly in the forms that are identified by the state as it is connected with the fact of its existence. With the help of law the state in the financial sphere determines and sets the types of budget revenues, taxation procedures, methods of currency use, etc. Administrative and legal regulation of financial relations is made up of such components as financial and legal relationships and legal regulation. This is why the concepts of "legal effect" and  "legal regulation" come to the fore. According to the author, the term "legal regulation" and "legal effect" are not identical and have different meanings. Therefore it is necessary to distinguish between the "regulation" and "effect". This would eliminate naming the same thing with different words. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.12731/2218-7405-2013-4-16

    It is hoped that the implementation of teleradiology will improve the quality and economic effectiveness of health care in the future. The German federal government has submitted a bill for a legal statute, thereby creating the necessary framework to guarantee the essential 'document security'. The responsibility of those involved with orderly data transmission as well as the limited responsibility for physicians' findings are both government by general liability. General principles apply also with regard to professional discretion. Authorized utilization of external networks depends upon the quality of data security. Networks with unlimited public access may not be used without explicit concent from those concerned. (orig.)

    Science.gov (United States)

    D'Attilio, M; Centobeni, R; D'Arcangelo, C

    1996-04-01

    With reference to cases of American dentists sued for "malpractice" during the 80s, the authors summarise the causes why, initially, the American lawyers found it difficult to plead on behalf of their clients. Therefore, the authors suggest a number of measures in order to reduce the probability of being sued by patients. In particular, they focus attention on:--the duty to treat patients, with reference to experimentation on humans within the context of scientific research and citing the Declaration of Helsinki;--informed consent, with particular emphasis on the need to inform the patient regarding all aspects of treatment, including any risks or presumed complications that might arise during and after treatment;--professional liability, drawing a distinction between moral responsibility (regulated by the Code of Professional Practice) and legal liability (involving the legal field). Lastly, the authors underline the need to perfect and increase the awareness of the "management" risk of a dental practice, drawing special attention to the need to keep precise records on patients receiving treatment: radiographical and photographical examination, remote and recent medical history, the current state of teeth and gums, the presence of clicks and/or crepitus on ATM, cephalea, spontaneous and/or provoked pain involving masticatory and cervical muscles, obtaining the informed consent of the patient.

  2. Argumentation in Legal Reasoning

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bench-Capon, Trevor; Prakken, Henry; Sartor, Giovanni

    A popular view of what Artificial Intelligence can do for lawyers is that it can do no more than deduce the consequences from a precisely stated set of facts and legal rules. This immediately makes many lawyers sceptical about the usefulness of such systems: this mechanical approach seems to leave out most of what is important in legal reasoning. A case does not appear as a set of facts, but rather as a story told by a client. For example, a man may come to his lawyer saying that he had developed an innovative product while working for Company A. Now Company B has made him an offer of a job, to develop a similar product for them. Can he do this? The lawyer firstly must interpret this story, in the context, so that it can be made to fit the framework of applicable law. Several interpretations may be possible. In our example it could be seen as being governed by his contract of employment, or as an issue in Trade Secrets law.

    Although innovative contracts are important for economic growth, when firms face uncertainty as to whether contracts will be enforced, they may choose not to innovate. Legal uncertainty can arise if a judge interprets the terms of a contract in a way that is antithetical to the intentions of the parties to the contract. Or sometimes a judge may understand the contract but overrule it for other reasons. How does legal uncertainty affect firms’ decisions to innovate? In “Legal Uncertainty and C...

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zidovsky, J; Zwinger, A

    1972-01-01

    A law legalizing abortion was passed nearly 20 years ago in Czechosl ovakia. The law aimed to give women the freedom to decide for themselves whether they want to be pregnant and to decrease the dangers of illegal abortion. The law resulted in a decreased number of abortions and of complications and deaths associated with abortion. Fertility in the country also declined. In 1968 there were more abortions than live births in the country. Since 1957, the law has been modified. The law still aims to prevent the birth of defective children and to protect the life and health of mothers. Each application for abortion is now examined on its own merits. Favorable economic circumstances, prolife social policies adopted by the government, and the new stricter interpretation of the abortion law have resulted in a r ising birthrate since 1969. Contraception is still stressed as preferab le to abortion. PMID:12256872

As unidades de paisagem - UIPs da Bacia do Rio Corrente foram classificadas de acordo com o seu grau de vulnerabilidade ambiental a partir do modelo da Ecodinâmica de Tricart, quantificado através do uso do geoprocessamento, o que permitiu uma análise integrada da paisagem. Os riscos ambientais identificados difundem-se pelas UIPs, classificados em graus diferenciados de vulnerabilidade e refletem as ações atinentes à produção do espaço regional. Os programas e projetos de desenvolvimento implantados na área, tanto pelo poder público quanto o privado, não levaram em conta as relações sociedade/natureza, insistindo, na sua maioria, por atividades nitidamente exploratórias, sem a contrapartida dos estudos sobre a capacidade de sustentabilidade dos ecossistemas regionais.

  11. Legal Language in Intercultural Communication

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the considerable role of legal translation in intercultural communication. Effective intercultural communication requires sufficient language skills and also extensive knowledge of the cultures involved, which encompass official social behaviour norms, enshrined in the corresponding legal systems. The basic legal terms often pose substantial difficulties even for experienced translators and, hence, to communication, because these terms nominate concepts that are inherently linked with culture, moral values and legal tradition of a given country. In intercultural communication the most widely used legal English is permeated by Anglo-Saxon legal system and concepts which have little or no equivalents in Romano-Germanic or other continental law countries. The authors present a comparative analysis of the translation strategies employed by the compilers of two main English-Lithuanian law dictionaries (V. Bitinaitė „Mokomasis anglų-lietuvių kalbų teisės terminų žodynas“ and O. Armalytė, L. Pažūsis. „Anglų-lietuvių kalbų teisės žodynas“ in translation of the English-Welsh law terms defining abstract common law terms, some specific English-Welsh legal professions and the English-Welsh court names. The findings of the analysis reveal the difficulties which the dictionary compilers have to cope with when translating culture-bound terms and the strategies chosen by them for problematic translations. The research also highlights the role of the legal language translator as the key figure in facilitating different cultural background comprehension of the legal terms and, what is even more important, specific aspects of legal systems; the latter being necessary for efficacious intercultural cooperation.

  12. Legal Aspects of Radioactive Waste Management: Relevant International Legal Instruments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The responsible use of nuclear technology requires the safe and environmentally sound management of radioactive waste, for which countries need to have stringent technical, administrative and legal measures in place. The legal aspects of radioactive waste management can be found in a wide variety of legally binding and non-binding international instruments. This overview focuses on the most relevant ones, in particular those on nuclear safety, security, safeguards and civil liability for nuclear damage. It also identifies relevant regional instruments concerning environmental matters, in particular, with regard to strategic environmental assessments (SEAs), environmental impact assessments (EIAs), public access to information and participation in decision-making, as well as access to justice

O terceiro questionário contém 40 itens sendo 20 relacionados ao controle percebido e 20 ao controle desejado e foi traduzido e adaptado do "Child Dental Control Assessment"19. Em relação ao medo e ansiedade, a média dos escores foi mais elevada para o sexo feminino do que para o sexo masculino (P < 0,05. Em relação a idade, as crianças da faixa de 11 a 13 anos revelaram-se em média mais temerosas que as de 7 a 9 anos. Quanto ao controle percebido as crianças mais novas percebem mais controle do que as mais velhas. Em geral os dados indicam que valores mais altos de medo relacionam-se com valores mais baixos de controle percebido. As crianças que tinham realizado tratamento odontológico com anestesia mostraram-se mais temerosas do que aquelas que não foram submetidas a anestesia, o que permite inferir que a etiologia de medo pode relacionar-se a esse procedimento que pode envolver a percepção de incontrolabilidade.

    1967-01-01

    The enactment of the Eugenic Protection Act in Japan was followed by many changes. The population explosion was stemmed, the birth rate was halved, and while the marriage rate remained steady the divorce rate declined. The annual total of abortions increased until 1955 and then slowly declined. The highest incidence of abortions in families is in the 30 to 34 age group when there are four children in the family. As elsewhere abortion in advanced stages of pregnancy is associated with high morbidity and mortality. There is little consensus as to the number of criminal abortions. Reasons for criminal abortions can be found in the legal restrictions concerning abortion: Licensing of the abortionist, certification of hospitals, taxation of operations and the requirement that abortion be reported. Other factors are price competition and the patient's desire for secrecy. Contraception is relatively ineffective as a birth control method in Japan. Oral contraceptives are not yet government approved. In 1958 alone 1.1 per cent of married women were sterilized and the incidence of sterilization was increasing. PMID:6062283

    Countries are grouped by the nature and extent of access to legal abortion. The categories include abortion on demand, for social reasons, for health reasons, for rape or incest or to save a mother's life, and only to save a mother's life. Abortion on demand is available for about 40% of the world's population and may have restrictions, such as parental consent or approval of state committees or physicians. There are 22 countries in Europe, 12 in the former Soviet Union, four in Asia, four in the Americas, one in the Middle East (Turkey), and one in Africa (Tunisia) which provide access to early abortion on demand. Abortion for social and economic reasons is available to 21% of the world's population in five countries in Asia, three in Europe (Great Britain, Finland, and Hungary), and one in Africa (Zambia). Abortion for health reasons is available to 16% of the world's population located in 21 countries in Africa, eight in the Americas, seven in Asia, five in Europe, and four in the Middle East. Laws governing about 5% of the world's population permit abortion only in the case of rape, incest, or when a mother's life is in danger (Brazil, Mexico, and Sudan). 18% of the world's population is covered by laws which permit an abortion only when a mother's life is in danger; this includes 19 countries in Africa, 11 in the Americas, nine in Asia, seven in the Middle East, and one in Europe (Ireland).

Contained in these series of cases we have separated the ones related with hemaphroditism from the ones that are not related. We also make reference to a new concept that generates controversy in the investigation; microchimerism, which is related with blood transfusions, transplants and genesis of autoimmune diseases..

The study attempted to quantify the online availability of drug retailers, to describe common products and characteristics in EU-based retail sales. The findings highlight the concern about the lack of objective information about products offered, including potential risks to health. Systems should be developed to assess the contents of products and the accuracy of information provided on the Internet, alongside continued monitoring of this market for "legal high" substances.

    In this paper, we investigate the relationship between cannabis use and attitudes to legalizing the use of cannabis. Predictions from theory provide a means of learning about the roles of information, self interest and regret in explaining differences in attitudes to legalization between those who currently use, those who have used in the past and those who have never used. Our empirical investigation suggests that users have a greater awareness of cannabis not being as harmful as abstainers think it is. This may explain why individuals are more inclined to be in favor of legalizing cannabis once they have used it themselves. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. PMID:27037958

Esta situación ha puesto al descubierto la existencia de diferentes enfoques relacionados con la definición del alfabetismo y la lectura, especialmente tras reconocerse su influencia en el desarrollo socioeconómico y su vinculación con los derechos fundamentales de las personas. Este trabajo analiza el significado de los términos alfabetismo, lectura y otros relacionados; así como la forma en que han variado a lo largo de la historia como producto del desarrollo de la civilización; y señala que éstos no sólo son importantes en sí mismos sino también en tanto que su medición varia en función del concepto que se elija.For some time now, but particularly during the last century, literacy and reading have been objects of interest for the academic community and international agencies. This situation has brought into the open the existence of different approaches to the definition of literacy and reading, especially once their influence on socioeconomic development and its link with basic human rights have been recognized. This paper analyses the meaning of such terms as literacy and reading, as well as how these have changed throughout history as products of the development of civilization. It shows that these terms are not only important in themselves but also inasmuch as their measurement varies according to the definition chosen.

    1984-01-01

    Over 15 million abortions have been performed in the US since the process of abortion legalization began in 1967. Consequences of legalization have included a marked reduction of pregnancy-related mortality and the prevention in many cases of the birth of infants with major physical or mental defects. Prenatal diagnosis, backed up by selective abortion, has made procreation a possibility for many couples who might otherwise avoid childbearing. However, the number of abortions performed on the basis of prenatal diagnosis remains small, comprising only about .01% of all legal abortions. In recent months, the pro-choice movement in the US has been handed 2 important victories: the US Supreme Court reaffirmed the 1973 decision legalizing abortion and the US Senate defeated a constitutional amendment intended to reverse this decision. As a result of these victories, contributions to pro-choice groups have declined. Continued vigilance is needed to protect these victories. PMID:12267089

    Full Text Available Los servicios de inteligencia en Colombia han operado durante casi sesenta años sin una regulación integral que demarque sus funciones y sus límites. Recientemente fue aprobado en el Congreso de la República, y en gran parte avalado por la Corte Constitucional, unproyecto de ley que pretende poner fin a esta omisión histórica. El presente artículo tiene como propósito revisar qué tan adecuada resulta la regulación que este proyecto de ley hace de dos aspectos relacionados con los servicios de inteligencia –el alcance del secreto y los controles a su funcionamiento– de cara a la protección de derechos como la intimidad, el acceso a la información y la verdad. La tesis que se defiende es que este proyecto de ley prevé aspectos positivos con relación a los dos temas mencionados, pero deja abiertos vacíos importantes que pueden llevar a que los servicios de inteligencia se aparten de sus funciones y sean utilizados para desconocer los derechos de las personas.

    Full Text Available The legal evaluation of the penalty interest, meaning the ex lege determination of its level is applicable only in the case of non-fulfillment of a monetary payment obligation. The applicability of the system of legal evaluation of the interest is generally determined by the absence of a document that ascertains the agreement of the parties, such as a contract, through which the parties, following this agreement, evaluate the prejudice caused by the non-fulfillment of a monetary payment obligation, before the prejudice has occurred. The legal evaluation of the penalty interest, as a component of the regulation in the field of legal interest has the purpose to ensure creditor’s protection. Regardless of the prejudice caused to the creditor, the legal penalty interest shall be determined by relating it to a variable benchmark that is the level of the reference interest rate of the National Bank of Romania, which is the monetary policy interest rate of the National Bank of Romania.

    Putting a socialist legal system in place in China since the 1980s has been a process of "legal transplantation," one which was in fact rooted in the legal reforms of the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). While widely subscribed to in legal scholarship, the farreaching impact of this transplantation has lacked careful theoretical reflection. This special issue presents some recent efforts of academics to re-examine legal transplantation, paying attention to its social, cultural and political aspects.

  12. Defeasible reasoning with legal conditionals.

    Gazzo Castañeda, Lupita Estefania; Knauff, Markus

    2016-04-01

    Valid conclusions can be defeated if people can think of conditions that prevent the consequent to occur although the antecedent is given. The goal of the present research was to investigate how people consider these conditions when reasoning with legal conditionals such as "If a person kills another human, then this person should be punished for manslaughter." In Experiments 1 and 2 legal conditionals were presented to participants together with exculpatory circumstances, i.e., counterexamples. The participants' task was to decide whether they would adhere to the legal conditional rule and punish the offender. Participants were either lawyers (i.e., advanced law students and graduate lawyers) or legal laypeople. We found that laypeople often ignore exculpatory circumstances and adhere to the conditional rule when offences evoked high levels of moral outrage. Lawyers did not show this effect. In Experiment 3 laypeople showed difficulties even when asked to simply imagine exculpatory circumstances for highly morally outrageous offences. Results provide new evidence for the role of emotions - like moral outrage - in the consideration of counterexamples to legal conditionals. PMID:26689704

  18. Legal aspects of nuclear energy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The legal basis for the use of nuclear energy is generally given by an Atomic Energy Act. Additionally, however, a system of regulations and standards has to be set up to lay down more detailed requirements. The fundamental philosophy and strategy has to be specified by governmental organizations. For the specification and implementation of the requirements some minimum organizational arrangements are necessary, which are not only restricted to governmental organizations. Furthermore procedural regulations have to be laid down before the implementation phase. This includes aspects like public participation in the licensing procedure. In practice, however, the implementation of the legal requirements always shows some weakness of the basic legal requirements. To learn from this experience some examples are presented, which gave rise to difficulties in the implementation procedure. (orig./RW)

En Costa Rica existe amplia legislación que ampara al menor contra los maltratos, correspondiéndole al equipo del sistema de salud nacional salvaguardar su salud y, en muchos casos, su vida. En este contexto, le compete al médico ser un ejecutante habilidoso en la valoración clínica a través de la cual se aborde al paciente. Desde el interrogatorio no revictimizante, el personal de salud debe realizar un abordaje inmediato conducente a evitar mayor lesionología para con el niño del que se ha abusado física y sexualmente, y para lo cual debe comprender temas tales como: establecimiento de la compatibilidad del mecanismo y fisiopatología del trauma, diagnóstico diferencial y evaluación clínico forense, además de contar con elementos que identifiquen indicadores psicológicos en la dinámica traumatogénica del menor. Especial atención debe prestarse a la toma, conservación y manipulación de las muestras biológicas en casos de delitos sexuales. con el fin de evitar la pérdida de evidencia forense.The battered child syndrome, whose genesis involves multiple biopsychosocial factors, affects children of all ages around the world, especially young children with certain risk factors. Although the physical damage that occurs could be temporary, physical scars can also occur and, particularly, psychological ones, that are usually persistent or even death. In Costa Rica there is a comprehensive legislation that protects children against abuse, corresponding to the national health system team to safeguard their health and often their lives. In this context, it is up to the Doctor to be a skilled performer in the clinical assessment through which the patient is to be addressed. From a non revictimizing interrogation, health personnel should make an immediate approach conductive to avoid further damage to the child who has been physically and sexually abused. Such personnel should understand the mechanism and pathophysiology of trauma, the differential diagnosis and the clinical forensic assessment, in addition to be able to identify psychological indicators of the origin of the child’s trauma. Particular attention should be given to the seizure, storage and handlingof biological samples in cases of sexual crimes in order to avoid the loss of forensic evidence.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper reviews the public service responsibilities of lawyers, and how they can fulfill the annual goal of performing pro bono services by serving certain public involvement groups, including organization involved in Constitutional issues and environmental protection matters. Public involvement groups should consider their needs for legal services and consider soliciting lawyers to serve on their boards or to volunteer legal services which will assist those lawyers in fulfilling their professional obligations under Rules of Professional Conduct. The group should identify specific activities and tasks that require the skills and training of a lawyer, including corporate governance issues; conflict-of-interest questions; the statutory construction of laws, regulations and ordinances; or analysis of potential liability. The addition of a lawyer to advisory boards for governmental agencies and for non-profit boards of charitable, religious, civic, community, environmental and educational organizations may provide those boards with knowledge, analytical approaches and insights that complement the abilities of other board members. Rules of Professional Conduct applicable to lawyers include admonitions for lawyers to provide 'Public Service'. Representative of many rules, the American Bar Association Model Rule 6.1, entitled 'Voluntary Pro Bono Publico Service' addresses every lawyer's professional responsibility to provide legal services to those 'unable to pay'. This Model Rule exhorts each lawyer to provide fifty (50) hours of legal services without fee or expectation of fee to persons of limited means or charitable, religious or civic, community, governmental and educational organizations or to individuals, groups or organizations seeking 'to secure or protect civil rights, civil liberties, or public rights, or charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental and educational organizations in matters in furtherance of their purposes, where the payment of

  17. Surrogate mothers: the legal issues.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mady, T M

    1981-01-01

    Increasing numbers of couples have benefitted from, or may be considering use of, the surrogate mother procedure. In this procedure, a couple, usually a husband and wife, enters into a contract with a surrogate mother. Under the terms of the contract, the surrogate mother is artificially inseminated, bears a child, and relinquishes all rights regarding that child to the semen donor and his wife. In exchange for bearing a child, the surrogate mother often receives a fee. In light of such increased use of the procedure, the issue of whether or not the arrangement is legal has particular importance. Questions of legality involve possible violations of criminal baby-selling statutes. Issues of whether adoption is necessary and whether the child is legitimate also are inherent in the surrogate mother arrangement. This Note argues that these questions should be resolved in favor of finding no impediment to the use of the surrogate mother procedure, at least within certain guidelines. However, even in the absence of legal impediment, detailed contracts and thorough medical screening for genetic, physical and psychological problems would further eliminate ambiguities regarding liability. In addition, the Note concludes that legislation should be enacted to deal with the legal ambiguities of the surrogate mother arrangement. This legislation should regulate the parties that enter into such an arrangement and the rights and responsibilities of these parties. PMID:7332012

    Full Text Available This article explores the nature and scope of legal translation which is an under-researched area in South Africa. In this article the author predicts that the demand for competent legal translators will increase in the future, evidenced by a recent call by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development(DoJ&CD, inviting applications for ten positions for “legislative language practitioners”. However, legal translation differs substantially from general translation in the sense that legal translation is subject to heavy restrictions at all levels and legal considerations are of paramount importance in a country such as South Africa, which provides for eleven official languages. Legal translation involves different legal languages, different legal systems and different cultural systems that require specialised knowledge and skills of the translator. The aim of this article is to investigate the core competencies and skills the legal translator must have; to consider the balance between legal competence and translation or linguistic competence; and to propose a discourse-analytical method of source text analysis, developed by Bhatia as a simplification strategy, as this may be a powerful tool in the training of legal translators in South Africa. Recent developments in South Africa relating to the Department of Arts and Culture’s obligation to translate legislation into all official languages, have important consequences for legal translation in general and the training of legal translators in particular.

    El herpesvirus bovino-1 es un virus de distribución mundial causante de graves pérdidas económicas debidas principalmente a la disminución de la eficiencia y en los indicadores de salud y productividad de cualquier hato ganadero infectado. Luego de la infección inicial del tracto respiratorio de los animales, el virus establece un estado de latencia viral en las neuronas sensoriales del ganglio trigémino y en los centros germinales de las tonsilas faríngeas. Periódicamente, el virus es reactivado y excretado en secreciones a través de las cuales puede infectar a otros animales susceptibles. Durante dicho estado de latencia hay disminución dramática de la expresión de genes virales, llevando solo a la expresión de dos transcritos: El RNA codificado por el gen relacionado con latencia (RL y el ORF-E viral. Múltiples estudios demuestran como el RL y el ORF-E están involucrados en la regulación del complejo ciclo de latencia y reactivación de la infección. La presente revisión de literatura se enfocará en describir y analizar los distintos estudios que han llevado a dilucidar el papel jugado por el gen RL y el ORF-E, sus transcritos y sus productos proteicos en el establecimiento, mantenimiento y reactivación de la latencia del HVB-1.

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available Background. It is undeniable that coaches play a major role in the development of athletes. Coaches and athletes have a close relationship and share various experiences that lead to a strong bond between them, and this is of great responsibility for the coach. Therefore, the coach should maintain this bond with mutual respect and trust. Various responsibilities are progressively placed on coaches by law to prevent or minimize injuries to athletes. In other words, since a coach is placed in a position of power and trust, the duty of care will always be placed on him. If certain requirements are not met, the coach may be held financially, or even criminally, liable. In this study, the author explains and discusses coaches’ legal duties, legal liabilities, and the elements required for liability of coaches toward athletes.

    Full Text Available A partir de la revisión de los principales artículos científicos e informes así como del análisis de algunos datos secundarios, se evaluaron los problemas relacionados con el consumo de alcohol en España entre 1990 y 2011. En 2011 pudo ser atribuibles al alcohol el 10% de la mortalidad total y aproximadamente el 30% de la mortalidad por accidente de tráfico en la población de 15-64 años. En esta misma población al menos el 0,8% padecía trastornos por consumo de alcohol, el 5% adicional podía tener problemas que necesitaban evaluación y aproximadamente el 20% había tenido alguna intoxicación etílica aguda (IEA en el último año. Las IEA supusieron aproximadamente el 0,5-1,1% de las urgencias hospitalarias. Los costes sociales totales del consumo de alcohol podrían representar el 1% del producto interior bruto. La probabilidad de daños relacionados con el consumo de alcohol es bastante mayor en hombres que en mujeres, con una razón hombre/mujer de mortalidad o daños graves relacionados con alcohol de 3/4, situación que apenas ha cambiado en los últimos 20 años. Los daños relacionados con alcohol han seguido una tendencia descendente, excepto la IEA. En el período 1990-2011 la tasa estandarizada de mortalidad relacionada con consumo de alcohol alcohol disminuyó a la mitad. Las grandes lagunas de conocimiento y las incertidumbres sobre los daños poblacionales relacionados con el alcohol en España justifican el apoyo institucional a su investigación y la puesta en marcha de un sistema integral de monitorización.

  9. Business structures and sustainable regional legal practice: the use of incorporated legal practices by regional, rural and remote legal practitioners

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Caroline Lydia Hart

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Since 2007 the Legal Profession Act 2007 (Qld has offered legal practitioners a wider choice of business structure other than sole practitioner or partnership, to include incorporated legal practice ('ILP' or multidisciplinary partnership. In particular the use of ILPs offers legal practitioners a range of benefits in terms of operating a law firm consistent with business management practices. The status of ILP however comes at a cost of putting in place 'appropriate management systems'. This paper refers to the legislation and the literature on the range of business structures, before giving an insight into the actual choice of business structures used by Queensland regional, rural and remote legal practitioners. What is the awareness of the new business structures? And are there factors inhibiting RRR legal practitioners from their use? This paper draws on over 30 interviews with sole practitioners, partners and legal practitioner directors about their choice of business structure.

  11. Mediation in Legal English Teaching

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chovancová Barbora

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Mediation is a language activity that has been unjustly neglected when preparing law students for their future professional careers. When trained in a professional context, students need to develop and improve complex communicative skills. These include not only the traditional language skills such as reading, writing, listening and speaking, but also more advanced skills such as summarizing, providing definitions, changing registers etc. All these are involved in the students’ acquisition of ‘soft skills’ that are particularly important for students of law since much of their future work involves interpersonal lawyer-client interaction. This article argues that mediation is a crucial (though previously underestimated skill and that law-oriented ESP instruction should provide training aimed at developing this skill. Showing a practical application of this approach, the paper demonstrates that mediation can be successfully integrated in the legal English syllabus and make the learning of legal English more effective.

This irruption of radon as a public health issue came with the general progress of scientific knowledge and the availability of a research capacity in France able to develop expertise. We are interested here in the legal implications of issues that arise from the lag between the activity of expertsand the regulatory activity in the domain of radon. We use the term expertise very broadly, to cover the practical application of research findings, the relation of the researchers with the community, and finally the acts by which experts provide their knowledge to the community. We first examine the course by which science developed the radon issue and the way they organized to move from research to expertise; here we try to characterize the various needs for radon expertise. We then discuss the legal difficulties associated with radon expertise.

    Full Text Available El alcohol afecta al cerebro y a la mayoría de los órganos y sistemas y se relaciona con numerosos problemas sanitarios, incluyendo enfermedades mentales, neurológicas, digestivas, cardiovasculares, endocrinas y metabólicas, perinatales, cáncer, infecciones y lesiones intencionadas y no intencionadas. Los mecanismos fisiopatológicos aún no se comprenden bien, aunque se ha postulado toxicidad directa del etanol y de sus metabolitos, déficits nutricionales y absorción de endotoxinas microbianas intestinales, todo modulado por los patrones de consumo y factores genéticos y ambientales. A nivel individual no puede predecirse con precisión quién tendrá o no problemas. A nivel poblacional para muchos problemas, como varios tipos de cánceres, hepatopatías, lesiones y probablemente conductas de riesgo, como relaciones sexuales sin protección, se suele observar una relación dosis respuesta lineal o exponencial. Para otros, como mortalidad general en mayores de 45 años, enfermedades isquémicas o diabetes mellitus la relación es en forma de J. Su impacto sobre la carga global de enfermedad es enorme, incluso después de descontar los efectos beneficiosos sobre la enfermedad cardiovascular, con diferencias importantes según país, edad, género, posición socioeconómica y otros factores. Buena parte de los daños se relacionan con su capacidad para producir dependencia y con la intoxicación aguda. A menudo genera también consecuencias negativas para otras personas (violencia, incumplimiento de responsabilidades familiares o laborales, molestias que no suelen considerarse al evaluar la carga de enfermedad. El objetivo de este trabajo es describir los principales daños sociales y sanitarios relacionados con el consumo de alcohol y los mecanismos que los generan a partir de fuentes secundarias.

Sin embargo, estos indicadores han tenido sus variaciones en el Servicio Provincial de Cardiología de Sancti Spíritus.Objetivo: Determinar los factores clínicos-epidemiológicos relacionados con la evolución intrahospitalaria de los pacientes ingresados con este diagnóstico.Método: Se realizó una investigación observacional, descriptiva, retrospectiva en el Servicio de Cardiología del Hospital Provincial General Camilo Cienfuegos de Sancti Spíritus durante el año 2011. La muestra estuvo conformada por los 363 pacientes que ingresaron con algunas de las formas clínicas agudas de cardiopatía isquémica. Se calculó la distribución de frecuencias según variables clínicas y epidemiológicas y se aplicaron pruebas de significación estadística (Chi cuadrado, Regresión logística, Exponencial de beta, que permitieron establecer relaciones con las distintas variables y la mortalidad.Resultados: Las complicaciones que se presentaron con mayor frecuencia fueron: disfunción ventricular izquierda aguda, arritmias ventriculares y angina postinfarto. Los infartos de topografía anterior, el antecedente de infarto previo, la hipertensión arterial y el hábito de fumar, fueron las variables más relacionadas con las complicaciones mecánicas y el infarto recidivante. La mayor sobreestadía estuvo motivada por la angina postinfarto, el reinfarto y el shock cardiogénico.Conclusiones: Existió una disminución de la mortalidad hospitalaria por síndrome coronario agudo en el año 2011 aunque hubo una elevada incidencia de complicaciones mecánicas y arrítmicas que motivaron una mayor estadía en el Servicio de Cardiología.

Se resalta la labor del perito como un experto, separándolo de lo que habitualmente es considerado cuando declara en un juicio: un simple testigo. Precisamente existen marcadas diferencias entre éste y un perito, el cual debe poseer una gran cantidad de valores éticos, morales y sociales para no deformar la verdad de los hechos. Asimismo, se sugiere cuáles deben ser las partes que debe poseer una peritación médico legal para que tenga un adecuado valor como instrumento probatorio durante un proceso judicial. Todo lo anterior siempre con el fin de mejorar la Administración de JusticiaThe present work describes the historical evolution of the concept of Legal Medicine and as has been applied in various contexts.

  11. Are xenotransplantation safeguards legally viable?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Florencio, P S; Ramanathan, E D

    2001-01-01

    Scientists agree on the need for robust public health safeguards to accompany the imminent introduction of xenotransplantation--clinical transplantation of animal tissue into humans. To protect society in the event of emerging infectious diseases, governments must devise a legally effective means of ensuring compliance with such safeguards. Neither consent law, the law of contracts, nor existing public health legislation can adequately enforce such compliance. Consent law serves as a mechanism of communicating the momentary waiver of legal rights, not as a durable enforcement doctrine. Because it would be essential for recipients personally to comply with public safety measures, the law of contracts would also be unable to compel compliance. Existing public health legislation would also likely be ineffective because it would need to be substantially amended to incorporate the heightened powers necessary for the periodic examination of asymptomatic xenotransplant recipients. Xenotransplantation-specific legislation would be a legally effective means of enforcing public health safeguards since it could require conforming behaviors and could impose monetary fines on those recipients who, having benefited from life-saving intervention, fail to comply. This Article argues that legislation implementing a post-xenotransplantation surveillance system should withstand constitutional scrutiny because it would not be discriminatory and because, although it would violate fundamental rights of recipients, such violations would be justified under existing constitutional doctrines.

Métodos: apresentam-se neste artigo os critérios teórico-metodológicos relacionados à formação do grupo e à terapia centrada na noção bakhtiniana de gêneros do discurso. A fim de ilustrar os procedimentos, são analisados episódios dialógicos gerados em sessões terapêuticas destinadas a cinco adolescentes com queixas de dificuldades de leitura e de escrita, alunos entre 11 e 13 anos de idade da rede pública de Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brasil. Resultados: os resultados levam a entender que a prática embasada na perspectiva enunciativo-discursiva possibilita aos sujeitos se apropriarem da linguagem escrita em seus aspectos discursivos, formais e textuais. Adicionalmente, a constituição do grupo proporciona, além das trocas de conhecimentos, um sentimento de pertença que eleva a autoestima, favorecendo os processos de aprendizagem. Conclusão: este trabalho evidencia os ganhos do atendimento em grupo na perspectiva teórica assumida. Os sujeitos, que no início do atendimento fonoaudiológico rejeitavam as atividades de leitura e escrita, na medida em que participavam de práticas sociais de linguagem, foram ressignificando a queixa da dificuldade, constituindo-se, gradativamente, em autores e leitores proficientes.

    Full Text Available Pakistan came into being in 1947. It struggled a lot during its initial days. It did not come to consensus to make a constitution until 1956 but later on military regime intervened. It is a drawback of Pakistan that laws and the constitution are not made indeed for its people rather they are made for the selfish elite who come into the power time to time without the support of the people. An unelected person cannot make a law for the betterment of the people he always do things for his own interest. Purpose - To point out weaknesses and hindrances in the social legal transformation of Pakistan and to recommend changes and best possible ways to build a highly social legal transformed society. Design/methodology/approach - The treatise is made taking into account the qualitative approach by looking into the historical prospect of social legal issues of Pakistan and to come to a conclusion to draw a better picture if followed the suggested steps. Findings - The paper includes the review of the history and weaknesses in legal transformation and comprehensive suggested steps to be followed to overcome the weaknesses and deficiencies. Research limitations/implications - The paper is limited to the social and legal aspects of the transformation in Pakistan and does not go into the deep details of politics and culture. Practical implications - Suggested steps can be followed by the legislature to make amendments in laws and to make more suitable laws which is a necessity for the better social transformation of Pakistan.

    Full Text Available São discutidos os aspectos relativos ao diagnóstico e tratamento dos hemangiomas cavernosos do crânio. Os dados obtidos em 26 casos, são apresentados, sendo salientado que a localização dos hemangiomas foi maior na região frontal, sendo mais atingido o sexo masculino. Os outros aspectos são coincidentes com os demais autores. A problemática desses tumores, principalmente a sua demonstração radiológica e o seu tratamento, são ressaltados, chegando-se à conclusão final de que o melhor meio de demonstração radiológica é a punção para contrastação direta do tumor. O tratamento de escolha é o cirúrgico, sendo a extirpação em bloco preferida nos casos de comprometimento ósseo importante, sendo a intervenção direta com dissecção e excisão reservada para as localizações nos tecidos moles ou com mínima participação óssea.

The tests were carried out using standard methods and sediments were analyzed using the X-ray fluorescence technique. The micro-algae were analyzed using conventional microscopy. The most abundant chemical elements in the sediments were Fe, Ca, Si and Al and there were high concentrations of electrolytes in comparison with data published in the literature. The mean values for salinity (7.7 g/L and sulfate (489 mg/L were much higher than normal for freshwater environments. The micro-algae identified are those that inhabit environments with higher levels of salinity. The snail Biomphalaria glabrata seems, therefore, to be more tolerant to salty environments and this constitutes a risk of spread of schistosomiasis.

    Full Text Available A colonização dos Aspergillus da secção Nigri nas uvas durante o cultivo é a principal fonte de ocratoxina A (OTA nos vinhos. A. carbonarius e A. niger são os principais produtores desta micotoxina em uvas e são fungos oportunistas que, se desenvolvem, principalmente, nas bagas danificadas durante seu amadurecimento. A produção de OTA em uvas é influenciada pelas condições climáticas e áreas geográficas, bem como pela variedade de uva, pelo sistema de cultivo e pelos danos causados nas uvas por insetos, infecção fúngica ou excesso de irrigação e chuva. As medidas para o controle de fungos toxigênicos devem considerar esses pontos críticos de controle. A OTA presente nas uvas é transferida para o vinho durante o processo de vinificação, sendo que um aumento na concentração de OTA ocorre após a maceração das uvas. Durante o envelhecimento do vinho, observa-se que a toxina permanece estável, pois a mesma concentração de OTA é encontrada no vinho após um ano de armazenamento. Boas práticas de produção, como, por exemplo, a seleção e separação dos cachos de uva com desenvolvimento fúngico visível auxilia, consideravelmente, na redução dos níveis de contaminação por fungos produtores de OTA, bem como dos níveis dessa micotoxina nos vinhos.The infection of grapes by 'black aspergilli' in the field is the main source of ochratoxin A (OTA in the wine. Aspergillus carbonarius and A. niger fungi are the main producers of this mycotoxin in grapes. They are opportunistic fungi that develop mainly on damaged berries at ripening. The production of OTA in grapes is influenced by climatic conditions, geographical location, grape varieties, crop system, berries damage caused by insets, fungal infection or excessive irrigation and rainfall. Control measures for toxigenic mycoflora in the vineyards must consider these critical control points. OTA in grapes is transferred to wine during vinification and an increase of OTA concentration in must was observed during maceration. The toxin remains stable during wine aging because the same OTA concentration is found in wine after 1 year. Good Agriculture Practices including balanced soil tillage, irrigation, nitrogen fertilization and pruning associated with Good Manufacturing Practices, such as separation of rot bunches helps considerably to reduce OTA-producing fungi and levels of mycotoxin in wine.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: O presente estudo objetivou avaliar a ocorrência e recorrência de secreção na orelha média e os possíveis fatores associados, em 190 recém-nascidos e lactentes observados nos 2 primeiros anos de vida, participantes de um programa de prevenção, detecção e intervenção interdisciplinar desenvolvido na Clínica de Educação para Saúde da Universidade do Sagrado Coração. MÉTODOS: Os recém-nascidos e lactentes foram submetidos mensalmente a anamnese, otoscopia, avaliação audiológica comportamental por meio de instrumentos sonoros e tons puros (audiometria pediátrica e timpanometria. RESULTADOS: Os resultados revelaram que 68,4% dos lactentes apresentaram um ou mais episódios de secreção na orelha média nos 2 primeiros anos, com maior recorrência para o sexo masculino. A idade de maior ocorrência foi entre 4 e 12 meses. Quanto mais cedo ocorreu o primeiro episódio, maior foi a probabilidade de recorrência. Os meses do ano de maior incidência foram de maio a agosto. Das variáveis estudadas, constatou-se que o período de aleitamento materno exclusivo atuou como um fator protetor. Quanto aos fatores de risco, verificou-se que a presença tabagismo passivo, refluxo gastroesofágico, alergia respiratória esteve relacionada à recorrência de efusão. CONCLUSÃO: Os achados revelaram a importância do acompanhamento auditivo periódico para lactentes nos 2 primeiros anos de vida, considerando ser o período crítico para o processo de maturação do sistema auditivo, no qual privações sensoriais auditivas podem ser responsáveis por seqüelas para o desenvolvimento de fala e linguagem.OBJECTIVE: The present study aimed at evaluating the occurrence and recurrence of middle ear secretion and possible associated factors in the first two years of life of 190 newborns and infants, participants in the interdisciplinary prevention, detection, and intervention program at the Clínica de Educação para Saúde of Universidade do Sagrado Coração. METHODS: Newborns and infants were monthly submitted to anamneses, otoscopy, behavioral hearing assessment using sound instruments and pure tones (pediatric audiometry and tympanometry. RESULTS: The results revealed that 68.4% of infants presented one or more episodes of middle ear secretion during their two first years, with more recurrence among males. Peak occurrence was between four and 12 months of age and, the earlier the first episode, the higher the probability of recurrence. Greatest incidence was during May and August. It was found that, of the variables investigated, the period of exclusive breastfeeding actuated as a protector factor. With respect of risk factors, it was observed that passive smoking, gastro-esophageal reflux and respiratory allergy were related with the recurrences of effusion. CONCLUSION: Findings revealed the importance of periodic auditory follow-up for infants during their first two years of life, considered to be the critical period of auditory system maturation, during which sensory deprivation can be responsible for damage to the development of speech, language and other auditory abilities.

    Previous research has convincingly shown that abortion legalization in the early 1970s led to a significant drop in fertility at that time. But this decline may have either represented a delay in births from a point where they were have represented a permanent reduction in fertility. We combine data from the 1970 U.S. Census and microdata from 1968 to 1999 Vital Statistics records to calculate lifetime fertility of women in the 1930s through 1960s birth cohorts.

  16. [Legal aspects of sports injuries].

    Allard, R H B

    2005-05-01

    Victims of sports injuries have to be advised about aspects of legal liablity, especially in case of luxation or avulsion of teeth, since there still may be dental consequences years later. The transference of information by the first-aid-dentist to the sportsman's own dentist should take place with care. If the patient has no family dentist, the first-aid-dentist should at least keep the sportsman free of pain, for example by starting endodontic treatment. Because sports injuries mostly occur beyond normal practice-hours, there may be reasons to deviate from the clinical guideline. PMID:15932047

    According to the author's opinion this decision can claim to be the most extensive rejection from the highest court in respect to all attempts to stop the development of atomic energy by means of judicial help. Its consequences for the right of action in Atomic Energy Law signal the end of a functionary legal protection, or at least it could be considered as trend-setter. If the economic and political pioneers of the atomic state can rely so much on their jurisdiction, other forms of resistance must be found. (orig./HSCH)

    2015-10-01

    Many of the social determinants of health are rooted in legal problems. Medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) have the potential to positively change clinical systems. This change can be accomplished by integrating legal staff into health care clinics to educate staff and residents on social determinants of health and their legal origins. When the MLP team works directly with patients to identify and address legal needs that improve health outcomes, and incorporate legal insights and solutions into health care practice where the patient population is overwhelmingly impacted by social conditions, outcomes are beneficial to children and families.

  6. The Argumentative Status of Foreign Legal Arguments

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    John Bell

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper argues that the citation of foreign legal sources in judicial decisions is not essentially a free-standing justification. Rather it gives additional support to arguments that can be based on existing domestic legal sources by showing that these illustrate a principle or value shared by a number of other legal systems. Legal development does not work simply by reformulating the rules by borrowing words or rules from other jurisdictions. Law develops by re-interpreting existing principles and rules in the current context of the legal system as a whole. The article draws on the work of Markesinis and Waldron and on the European Legal Development project which the author led with Professor David Ibbetson.

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available In the last two decades, legal English has attracted increasing interest and awareness, especially because English is predominantly the language of international legal practice. Legal English must be seen in the overall context of English for Specific Purposes , as it shares the important elements of need analysis, syllabus design, course design, and materials selection and development which are common to all fields of work in ESP. As with other varieties of ESP, Legal English implies the definition of a specific language corpus, usages of various teaching strategies and emphasis on particular kinds of communication in a specific context.The article aims to highlight some aspects of teaching legal English by a non-native teacher who is not an expert in law. It particularly focuses attention on the development of basic communication skills and the use of lexical approaches in successful language acquisition in legal English.

  8. BITCOIN - BETWEEN LEGAL AND INFORMAL

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available The proliferation of technology emphasized new forms of payment. During the last years, current literature highlighted the role of virtual currency, the channels of payment through digital coins and the importance of assimilation of such platforms. Bitcoin or BTC is known as a digital coin, issued for the first time in 2009 and based on a peer to peer system. The difference from other forms of payment is that BTC is not controlled by any institution or central authority. BTC transactions have grown rapidly, ”asking" for regulation measures or legal approval of governments. Although BTC has become very popular, the market is poor and unfortunately of no confidence. There is a lack of regulation which can determine a number of risks associated with criminal financing activities. However, the legal status of Bitcoin is present in many European countries like Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Switzerland or Turkey. Also, this type of currency has experienced a rapid evolution among coffee shops and restaurants.

  9. Minors and Sexting: Legal Implications.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lorang, Melissa R; McNiel, Dale E; Binder, Renée L

    2016-03-01

    Sexting is the sending or forwarding of sexually explicit photographs or videos of the sender or someone known to the sender via cell phone. It has become common practice among young people, as cell phones are being given to adolescents at ever younger ages. Youths often send messages without giving appropriate thought to the content of the images. In studies on the subject, rates of minors who have sent sexual images range from 4 to 25 percent, depending on the age of the youths surveyed, the content of the messages and other factors. Because transferring and viewing sexually explicit material when the subject is a minor can be considered child pornography, there can be serious legal consequences. Several states have enacted legislation to help differentiate between child pornography and sexting by minors. The trend reflected in statutes has been that minors involved in sexting without other exacerbating circumstances should be charged with a less serious offense. There is no clear national consensus on how sexting by minors is adjudicated, and therefore we compared several statutes. Case examples are used to illustrate the range of legal outcomes, from felony charges to no charges. Two sexting episodes that were followed by suicide are described. We also address the role of the forensic mental health professional. PMID:26944746

Our empirical analysis for a cross-section of up to 150 countries shows that th...

  6. Artificial intelligence approach to legal reasoning

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For artificial intelligence, understanding the forms of human reasoning is a central goal. Legal reasoning is a form that makes a new set of demands on artificial intelligence methods. Most importantly, a computer program that reasons about legal problems must be able to distinguish between questions it is competent to answer and questions that human lawyers could seriously argue either way. In addition, a program for analyzing legal problems should be able to use both general legal rules and decisions in past cases; and it should be able to work with technical concepts that are only partly defined and subject to shifts of meaning. Each of these requirements has wider applications in artificial intelligence, beyond the legal domain. This dissertation presents a computational framework for legal reasoning, within which such requirements can be accommodated. The development of the framework draws significantly on the philosophy of law, in which the elucidation of legal reasoning is an important topic. A key element of the framework is the legal distinction between hard cases and clear cases. In legal writing, this distinction has been taken for granted more often than it has been explored. Here, some initial heuristics are proposed by which a program might make the distinction

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The article highlights the formation process of the discursive space of the legal field. It is shown that the metalanguage is a key communication tool in the discursive space of the legal field and becomes a means of expressing the attitude to the realities of the legal sphere, the environment of operating their relationships. It is noted that the subject and subjectless discourses in the professional legal sphere reflect semantic relationships between the written and the said. It is stated that description of the meta-linguistic nature of legal discourse can complement the knowledge in the discursive space of the legal field.An equally important source for the formation of discursive space of the legal field are legal texts (legislative that are created by professional lawyers taking into consideration the peculiarities of the professional sphere.Thus, metalinguistic innovations of subjective and subjectless discourses in the language in general and in the language of law enforcement in particular, enhance the law enforcement activity promoting universal human values in the discursive space of the legal field.

    Full Text Available A obesidade definida como a acumulação excessiva de gordura corporal deriva de um desequilíbrio crônico entre a energia ingerida e a energia gasta. Neste desequilíbrio podem estar implicados diversos fatores relacionados com o estilo de vida (dieta e exercício físico, alterações neuro-endócrinas, juntamente com um componente hereditário. O componente genético constitui um fator determinante de algumas doenças congênitas e um elemento de risco para diversas doenças crônicas como diabetes, osteoporose, hipertensão, câncer, obesidade, entre outras. O aumento da prevalência da obesidade em quase todos os países durante os últimos anos, parece indicar que existe uma predisposição ou susceptibilidade genética para a obesidade, sobre a qual atuam os fatores ambientais relacionados com os estilos de vida, em que se incluem principalmente os hábitos alimentares e a atividade física. A utilização de modelos animais de obesidade, a transferência génica e os estudos de associação e ligamento, permitiram a identificação de vários genes implicados na obesidade.Obesity, defined as an excessive body fat accumulation, is caused by a chronic imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. Several factors have been associated with this energy imbalance, such as life style (diet and physical activity, neuroendocrine disorders, together with the genetic background. The genetic background is a major determinant factor of some congenital diseases and a risk factor for some chronic disorders, such as diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, cancer, obesity, and others. The increased prevalence of obesity in most countries during the last years, seems to indicate that there is a genetic predisposition or susceptibility to be obese which is increased by environmental and life style factors, mainly by food habits and physical in activity.

    The German legal framework concerning end of life decisions is based on two pillars: the medical standards and the patient's autonomy. Every medical treatment, including life-saving and palliative measures, requires medical indication and, crucially, the patient's consent. Without the patient's consent even medically indicated treatment is prohibited.In other cases, complying with the patient's wishes, doctors have to treat symptoms the best they can. This includes palliative sedation accepting that the indicated medication may shorten life.It is prohibited to actively kill a patient to shorten his suffering. Assisting a suicide is only permitted if the suicide decision is made freely and on the patient's own responsibility. Businesslike suicide assistance is prohibited. PMID:26983108

Metodología A partir de la revisión de archivos y el muestreo intencional, se seleccionaron 68 estudiantes que tuvieron un embarazo adolescente. Mediante relatos de vida y entrevistas en profundidad se analizan las implicaciones del embarazo en la condición personal, familiar y académica. Resultados Durante el primer trimestre de embarazo, se generan crisis y ajustes en la estructura familiar y afectiva que culminan en la aceptación de la maternidad como proyecto de vida reproduciendo el estereotipo de madresolterismo. El acompañamiento de la pareja se da durante los primeros meses, seguido por abandono. Aunque prejuiciado, el apoyo de la comunidad universitaria incide en el interés por el desarrollo personal, académico y del bebé. Los servicios ofertados por la universidad, son poco utilizados aunque reconocen su importancia. Se consultan referentes especializados que asustan por su énfasis patológico, lo que conduce a informarse con fuentes familiares.

    Tuberculosis is a diffusive infectious disease whose typical behaviour differentiates it from other infectious diseases spread by human-to-human transmission (flu, chicken pox, cholera, etc.) that follow a classic epidemic pattern. Indeed, in the presence of a known source of Koch bacilli that is capable of spreading the bacteria by air, not all exposed individuals inhale the bacteria, not all those who inhale them absorb them, not all those who absorb the bacteria are unable to eliminate them, not all who are able to eliminate them do so using delayed hypersensitivity, not all those who react with delayed hypersensitivity suffer lasting tissue damage (among other things, minor), not all who suffer tissue damage have anatomical sequelae, and not all those who have anatomical sequelae, however minimal, become carriers of bacilli in the latent period. The vast majority (90-95%) of the latter - which are in any case a portion, not the totality of those exposed - remain asymptomatic throughout their lives and never develop active tuberculosis. Based on these biological characteristics and the legal concepts of "epidemic" and "disease," it becomes highly problematic, if not impossible, to assert both that tuberculosis can cause events of sufficient magnitude to be associated with the crime of "epidemic," and that the mere diagnosis of a latent tuberculosis infection is sufficient to assume the presence of an illness legally prosecutable in criminal proceedings or a disability prosecutable in civil proceedings. Furthermore, clinically apparent tuberculosis is a temporarily-and in some cases permanently-disabling condition, and in certain work environments, even with the difficulties caused by the lack of available effective diagnostic tools and the insidious behaviour of the disease in the early stages, targeted monitoring to identify other persons who may become ill is appropriate.

  3. The legal standards and provisions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    On the basis of the facts of Section 7, Subsection 3 of the German Atomic Energy Act, stock is taken of the legal position. Points of special importance in this regard are the precise distinction between an operating permit and a decommissioning permit, and the question of the ranking order of decommissioning variants. Ultimately, decommissioning legally must be interpreted as a phase between the final discontinuation of operations and the safe enclosure and dismantling, respectively, of a plant. Another open point is the ranking order of the variances of fact included in Section 7, Subsection 3 of the German Atomic Energy Act, on which it can be said that there is the possibility of arranging these variances in time after decommissioning as well as the possibility to choose freely among the variants available. Also a partial permit relationship linking the individual variants of Section 7, Subsection 3 of the Atomic Energy Act cannot be accepted. The substantive criteria to be met in a permit under Section 7, Subsection 3 of the German Atomic Energy Act raise major practical difficulties due to the reference contained in Section 7, Subsection 3, second sentence of the German Atomic Energy Act. These problems become manifest especially in the open question applying the body of nuclear technical codes, most in which were set up with the construction and operating of a nuclear facility in mind. In the matter of discretionary refusal, important reasons would favor a reduction to zero of this discretionary power. After all, also the question of waste management has not yet been clarified in general terms with respect to the waste arising from activities under Section 7, Subsection 3, German Atomic Energy Act. For this point to be sattled, permissible limits, measurement techniques, and demonstration of use must be defined in the light of each individual case. (orig.HP)

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    1981-03-01

    Full Text Available In this article, which has not been published before, the late Prof. du Plessis lays bare the philosophical roots of the liberal-democratic state, or the legal state, as he preferred to call it. After a recapitulative version of the theory of the legal state, het indicates the origin of this form in Greek philosophy and in Medieval thought. The stress, however, is on the Modem Era, in which he distinuishes two main periods in the development of the theory of the legal state:the jusnaturalistic period and thepositivistic or formal period.He argues that positivism has destroyed the original ideal o f individual freedom in facts by regarding justice as a purely formal matter susceptible to any content. All guarantees for individual freedom which rested on a universal normative system fe ll away. The state defines its own competence and limits itself to legal forms in all its activities. The legal state thus merely becomes the state, any state as determined by fixed rules o f its own making to which it binds itselfin all its functioning. Law sinks to a mere form in which the juristic personality of the state manifests its supremacy, and from this there is only one step to the concept that the state is identical with law, so that any state necessarily is a legal state, and any state action which is formally correct, is legal. The article concludes with a brief representation o f the author’s own political and legal vision.

The use of the different (legal languages of the European Union Member States is one of the most practical and most difficult problems in the process of European integration. The linguistic matters are directly contacting all legal issues. In February 2003 the Commission launched an Action Plan on a more coherent European Contract Law. With this Action Plan a sector specific approach of legal and linguistic harmonization will start. On of the official aims will be the preparation of a common frame of reference, providing a pan-European terminology and rules. This contribution will reflect the need of a better and more coherent legal language use on a European Union level and describe a more concept-based approach of linguistic legal integration.

    We propose an analysis of the codified Law of France as a structured system. Fifty two legal codes are selected on the basis of explicit legal criteria and considered as vertices with their mutual quotations forming the edges in a network which properties are analyzed relying on graph theory. We find that a group of 10 codes are simultaneously the most citing and the most cited by other codes, and are also strongly connected together so forming a "rich club" sub-graph. Three other code communities are also found that somewhat partition the legal field is distinct thematic sub-domains. The legal interpretation of this partition is opening new untraditional lines of research. We also conjecture that many legal systems are forming such new kind of networks that share some properties in common with small worlds but are far denser. We propose to call "concentrated world".

Estos y otro gran número de factores son los que mueven a la población rural hacia métodos la mayoría de las veces adquiridos por observaciones y deducciones tomadas de su propio cultivo, en los cuales van envueltas muchas fatigas, muchos sudores y trabajos, pero que interpretando bien, es la misma necesidad aguzadora de la inteligencia que ejercita el músculo para luchar por subsistir, que es analógo a progresar. No será este problema regional un asomo al futuro aspecto al cual marchamos con rapidez y que llegará en un no lejano día para el país como resultado de los desmontes, el arrastre de los suelos hacia los ríos y el exceso de población. Algunos puntos serán tratados con mayor intensidad, como son: todo lo relacionado con el cultivo de la cebolla que en realidad fue nuestra mira principal durante el reconocimiento; la erosión del suelo por considerarla como un verdadero problema de la región, y algunos puntos de vista nuestros sobre un programa de acción a este respecto. Aprovechamos la ocasión para agradecer a los señores Carvajalino Jácome, Benito Cabrales, Antonio García y Alberto Franco por las facilidades y atenciones que los tres primeros nos brindaron, sin las cuales no habríamos llenado nuestro deseo de estudiar el problema; y al último, por su valiosa cooperación de los dibujos aquí insertados; también, a los hacendados que tan galantemente contribuyeron con sus datos para el mejor éxito de la comisión.

  6. Legal and legal-ethical aspects of risk assessment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The article examines why human beings accept risks. An assessment of risk is always carried out in connection with the benefits to be had from an action which is a potential risk. Decisions on the acceptability of risks are the consequence of political assessments. An assessment of risk on a legal basis is only possible to a limited degree. What is important are the criteria according to which the acceptability of risks is determined. In this context, the concept of damage proves itself to be of central importance; this concept includes the question as to the degree to which such damage can be tolerated socially and politically, the question of future damage as well as the degree to which such damage is reversible. It would be ideal if those persons who are affected by potential damage were to be the ones to make such decisions, but this is extremely difficult to put into practice. Special care must be taken in regard to decisions which have repercussions for future generations or for the state of nature. In this case, the decision which those persons who are potentially affected would most probably make must be anticipated and taken into account as if they were here to participate in the decision-making process.

METHOD: In a case-control study we examined all newborns presenting meningitis between August/2002 and December/2003 in the neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Healthy newborns were enrolled as a Control Group (CG. Data related to pregnancy, labor and the neonate itself were collected. The results with p<0,05 were considered significant. RESULTS: 42 newborns with meningitis were compared to 42 controls. The meningitis group (MG presented a lower number of medical visits during the prenatal care. The most common abnormalities detected in both groups were: drug addiction, congenital infections, preeclampsia, eclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus and urinary tract infections. Fetal respiratory distress and the use of respiratory support were related to the occurrence of meningitis. The average weight and the APGAR scores were lower in the MG. The prevalence of premature and small for the gestational age infants was significantly higher in the MG. The neurological examination detected abnormalities in 35.7% of the meningitis cases. CONCLUSION: The association of risk factors related to pregnancy, labor and the newborn itself to the neonatal meningitis outcome in our setting is similar to the described in the literature.

  12. Innovative Legal Approaches to Address Obesity

    Pomeranz, Jennifer L; Teret, Stephen P; Sugarman, Stephen D; Rutkow, Lainie; Brownell, Kelly D

    2009-01-01

    Context: The law is a powerful public health tool with considerable potential to address the obesity issue. Scientific advances, gaps in the current regulatory environment, and new ways of conceptualizing rights and responsibilities offer a foundation for legal innovation. Methods: This article connects developments in public health and nutrition with legal advances to define promising avenues for preventing obesity through the application of the law. Findings: Two sets of approaches are defined: (1) direct application of the law to factors known to contribute to obesity and (2) original and innovative legal solutions that address the weak regulatory stance of government and the ineffectiveness of existing policies used to control obesity. Specific legal strategies are discussed for limiting children's food marketing, confronting the potential addictive properties of food, compelling industry speech, increasing government speech, regulating conduct, using tort litigation, applying nuisance law as a litigation strategy, and considering performance-based regulation as an alternative to typical regulatory actions. Finally, preemption is an overriding issue and can play both a facilitative and a hindering role in obesity policy. Conclusions: Legal solutions are immediately available to the government to address obesity and should be considered at the federal, state, and local levels. New and innovative legal solutions represent opportunities to take the law in creative directions and to link legal, nutrition, and public health communities in constructive ways. PMID:19298420

  13. New generation of ''legal'' dosemeters

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the early 1980s research at the National Radiological Protection Board in the UK proved the feasibility of using solid state electronics in an entirely new dosimetry technology - capable of reaching right down into the low energy photon ranges, and able to detect beta radiation. In 1988 the NRPB undertook a joint venture with Siemens Plessey Controls to develop a marketable personal dosemeter meeting full Health and Safety Executive approval as a ''legal'' instrument. The Electronic Personal Dosemeter (EPD) was thus conceived, and will reach the pre-production stage early this year. The EPD makes use of state-of-the-art silicon integrated circuit technology, with a custom amplifier and microprocessor system. The liquid crystal display continuously shows the accumulated short-term penetrating dose in terms of the Hp (10) unit, and can also show superficial dose and dose rates. Because the EPD must be continuously powered, the custom lithium battery was commissioned to ensure a minimum service interval of 12 months. The EPD is the size and weight of a small pocket pager. Although dose data can be read directly from the EPD, a comprehensive data management system is needed to effect real-life use in industry. The EPD thus communicates by infra-red link to a reader unit which interfaces an IBM-compatible PC, allowing authorized personnel to read the dose memories and perform dose alarm threshold settings.

  14. Legal liability and workplace violence.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Brakel, S J

    1998-01-01

    Workplace violence is a growing social problem. Some of this growth may be perceptual, reflecting our new awareness of what constitutes violence in the workplace. Furthermore, much of what falls under its current rubric does not correspond to the classic image of worker-on-worker or worker-on-employer mayhem. Nevertheless, the total number of incidents is alarmingly large; the problem is real. It is natural to consider law (i.e., legal liability) as a potential solution. Aiming the liability threat at the employer may be the most effective and efficient strategy. There are ample theories to choose from: negligence (tort) law, agency law, contract, civil rights, and regulatory law. Judges and juries appear eager to hold employers accountable for violent incidents in the workplace, sometimes in the face of other, more logical constructions of the facts or theory. One's best hope is that the fear this strikes in the hearts of employers will make for maximum preventive results. PMID:9894212

  15. DRONE OPERATORS – LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrei-Alexandru STOICA

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Drones or unmanned or remote vehicles represent a new generation of devices that were designed to help mankind achieve better results in areas that were proven to hazardous. By developing drones, new areas of economic activities have been unlocked for better exploitation, but at the same time, the lack of a proper legal system to back-up the new technology allowed a new wave of gray-lined uses of drones that must be tackled. As the Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institute1 explains in an interview in 2012 that “a revolutionary technology is a game-changing technology on a historic level. It is technology like gunpowder, or the steam engine, or the atomic bomb”. With this in mind, drones mark the revolution to carry out strikes from thousands of kilometers away, while also ensuring a permanent eye in the sky for both military and also law enforcement operations. The aforementioned facts are just small percentages of what a drone is truly capable of and its full potential will only be unlocked once artificial intelligence will become an integral part of robotics.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper examines the extent to which American law and legal institutions have addressed problems of intergenerational equities. Beginning with a definition of the issue, the paper goes on to address conservation law, public debt ceilings, property law, and eugenic laws. The research supports the conclusion that neither statutory law, the formal expression of public policy articulated by the legislature, nor common law, the case-by-case definition of private legal rights by the courts has developed a coherent set of legal principles for dealing with the difficult problems of intergenerational equity. 15 references

  5. The legal status of Uncertainty

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available An exponential improvement of numerical weather prediction (NWP models was observed during the last decade (Lynch, 2008. Civil Protection (CP systems exploited Meteo services in order to redeploy their actions towards the prediction and prevention of events rather than towards an exclusively response-oriented mechanism1.

    Nevertheless, experience tells us that NWP models, even if assisted by real time observations, are far from being deterministic. Complications frequently emerge in medium to long range forecasting, which are subject to sudden modifications. On the other hand, short term forecasts, if seen through the lens of criminal trials2, are to the same extent, scarcely reliable (Molini et al., 2009.

    One particular episode related with wrong forecasts, in the Italian panorama, has deeply frightened CP operators as the NWP model in force missed a meteorological adversity which, in fact, caused death and dealt severe damage in the province of Vibo Valentia (2006. This event turned into a very discussed trial, lasting over three years, and intended against whom assumed the legal position of guardianship within the CP. A first set of data is now available showing that in concomitance with the trial of Vibo Valentia the number of alerts issued raised almost three folds. We sustain the hypothesis that the beginning of the process of overcriminalization (Husak, 2008 of CPs is currently increasing the number of false alerts with the consequent effect of weakening alert perception and response by the citizenship (Brezntiz, 1984.

    The common misunderstanding of such an issue, i.e. the inherent uncertainty in weather predictions, mainly by prosecutors and judges, and generally by whom deals with law and justice, is creating the basis for a defensive behaviour3 within CPs. This paper intends, thus, to analyse the social and legal relevance of uncertainty in the process of issuing

  8. Theorizing Mediation: Lessons Learned from Legal Anthropology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marc Simon Thomas

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Since the 1990s, there has been an increasing interest in mediation in the Netherlands, as part of a set of ‘alternative dispute resolution’ methods. Politicians, lawyers and practitioners have embraced mediation as a legitimate method for settling disputes, alongside the adjudication of conflicts in courts of law. However, there is a striking lack of literature aimed at theorizing mediation from a legal perspective. This article argues that the legal anthropology literature on disputes and dispute settlement offers useful insights for understanding mediation from a ‘legal research’ point of view. This is because a lot of current common knowledge on mediation has its roots in a legal anthropological understanding. The argument that is set forth in this article is that the most important lesson that can be learned is that mediation should not be seen in isolation, but as part of a social process.

    In an increasingly litigious society where ritual demands for accountability and "taking responsibility" are now commonplace, it is not surprising that members of clinical ethics committees (CECs) are becoming more aware of their potential legal liability. Yet the vulnerability of committee members to legal action is difficult to assess with any certainty. This is because the CECs which have been set up in the UK are—if the American experience is followed—likely to vary significantly in terms...

  6. Cannabis Use and Support for Cannabis Legalization

    2014-01-01

    We investigate the determinants of the support for cannabis legalization finding a causal effect of personal experience with cannabis use. Current and past cannabis users are more in favor of legalization. We relate this to self-interest and inside information about potential dangers of cannabis use. While the effects of self-interest are not very surprising, the effect of inside information suggests that cannabis use may not be as harmful as cannabis users originally thought it was and not a...

    Sullivan, Clare

    2011-01-01

    This is the first full-length study of digital identity in a transactional context, from a legal perspective. Clare Sullivan's analysis reveals the emergence of a distinct, new legal concept of identity. This concept is particularly clear under a national identity scheme such as the United Kingdom and Indian schemes. However, its emergence is evident even in jurisdictions, like Australia, which do not have a formal national identity scheme. Much of the analysis can also be extrapolated ...

    Islamic law is integrated into but stands independently from Indonesia’s national law. It is integrated in the sense that its substance has been absorbed into the legal systems through laws and other legal rulings and binds all Indonesian citizens. It is independent however, in the sense that its substance governs the internal conduct of Muslims.

    In this article, I argue that - despite the absence of any clear influence of one theory on the other - the legal theories of Dworkin and Hegel share several similar and, at times, unique positions that join them together within a distinctive school of legal theory, sharing a middle position between natural law and legal positivism. In addition, each theory can help the other in addressing certain internal difficulties. By recognizing both Hegel and Dworkin as proponents of a position lying i...

  12. Ethical issues in medico-legal exposures

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Medical Exposure Directive (MED) 97/43/Euratom defines medico-legal procedures as 'procedures performed for insurance or legal purposes without a medical indication'. The term 'medico-legal exposures' covers a wide range of possible types of exposures, very different in nature, for which the only feature in common is the fact that the main reason for performing them does not relate directly to the health of the individual being exposed to ionising radiation. The key issue in medico-legal exposures is justification. Balancing the advantages and disadvantages of such exposures is complex because not only can these be difficult to quantify and hence compare, but often the advantage may be to society whereas the disadvantage is usually to an individual. This adds an additional layer of ethical complexity to the problem and one, which requires input from a number of sources beyond the established radiation protection community. Because medico-legal exposures are considered to be medical exposures, they are not subject to dose limits. In medico-legal exposures where the benefit is not necessarily to the individual undergoing the exposure, the question must be asked as to whether or not this is an appropriate framework within which to conduct such exposures. This paper looks at the current situation in Europe, highlighting some of the particular problems that have arisen, and tries to identify the areas, which require further clarification and guidance.

  15. Legal protection against nuclear damage

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The IAEA Director General appointed an international Panel of Experts to go into the question of Civil Liability and State Responsibility for Nuclear Hazards. The Panel had before it certain basic postulates formulated after a preliminary and tentative consideration of the subject. From the viewpoint of the public, the first postulate is, of course, that the use of nuclear energy be regulated by adequate licensing and control mechanisms so as to prevent any accidents. To the extent, however, that nuclear damage cannot be prevented, there must be liability on the part of the enterprise which caused the damage and, where damage exceeds its liability or its financial resources there should be some assurance of compensation by the State. This should be so not only within the borders of one State, but especially also on an international basis. Security should be required for the possible liability of the enterprises connected with a nuclear incident. Litigation with respect to liability should be concentrated in the most convenient tribunal and be governed by a single clearly defined law. The methods of distribution should meet general standards of equity and be as expeditious as possible. Emergency measures, especially evacuation, first aid and decontamination, should be organized and financed without delay. At the same time, the liability of an enterprise should not exceed its reasonable financial capabilities. This means that a ceiling should be imposed upon the amount of third party liability to which an enterprise could be held. And the liability should generally be such as can be covered by adequate financial security. Uniformity in the treatment of victims of nuclear incidents in all these fields is a desirable goal. Yet, if a rule adopted on an international level or suggested by uniform legislation were to be viable, it should adapt itself to the social, economic and legal order already existing in individual States. This may mean that in certain fields it

    Full Text Available A prática do ciclismo off-road (mountain biking - MTB, cresceu muito nas últimas duas décadas, sendo incluído como esporte olímpico, nos Jogos de Atlanta em 1996, na modalidade Cross Country. Na última década, houve um aumento no número de publicações científicas que verificaram a demanda fisiológica durante competições, assim como o estudo de possíveis preditores da performance nesta modalidade. O objetivo deste estudo de revisão foi descrever alguns aspectos fisiológicos específicos do MTB Cross Country (MTB CC competitivo (intensidade de provas, perfil fisiológico de atletas de elite, uso de suspensões e determinantes da performance em subidas. Observa-se na literatura analisada que as provas de MTB CC parecem impor uma sobrecarga fisiológica maior, quando analisada através da frequência cardíaca, do que provas de ciclismo de estrada com duração semelhante. Entretanto, quando analisada pela potência de pedalada, observa-se claramente a característica intermitente da modalidade, com variações de potência durante a prova entre zero e 500W, e potência média relativamente baixa em comparação aos valores de FC encontrados. Outro fator importante levantado neste estudo são as alterações fisiológicas decorrentes do uso de suspensões nas bicicletas de MTB CC. O uso deste equipamento reduz o estresse muscular provocado pelo terreno acidentado, embora pareça não afetar o gasto energético total, tanto em percurso plano como em subidas. Entretanto, é fato que o desempenho em circuitos acidentados é melhorado com o uso das suspensões. Com base nos estudos abordados nessa revisão, conclui-se que o MTB CC enquanto modalidade competitiva apresenta uma grande variação de intensidade (avaliada através da potência, sendo esta atribuída principalmente ao tipo de terreno (irregular e com muitas aclives e declives acentuados em que as provas de MTB CC acontecem.

Embora alguns antígenos injetados tivessem dado reação positiva, a leishmanina foi não reatora evidenciando uma anergia específica. As imunoglobulinas G e M estavam elevadas. 0 encontro de anticorpos circulantes por alguns autores associando ao fato de que o complemento C3 era baixo em nosso paciente, levou-nos a considerar o consumo deste que fixado a complexos Ag-Ac circulantes poderiam explicar os surtos de febre e artralgias. Por fim são considerados os pontos de vista de autores diferentes em relação ao fato de que a LCD seria causada por espécie diferente de leishmânia, ou por defeito imunológico do paciente, destacando-se o trabalho de Convit³ em favor desta útlima hipótese.A case of Cutis Diffuse Leishmaniasis is studied in respect to its immuno logical aspects. Cell mediated immunity was investigated with a battery of nine intradermal antigens, using disposable 1.0 ml tuberculin syringes, with 25 guage oedles. Also, artificial sensibilization to the DNCB and dosage of the Macrophage Inhibiting Factor (MIF were carried out. Some of the intradermal tests were positive and the leishmanine reaction was negative showing specific anergy. The G and M immunoglobulines were elevated. Since circulating antibodies have been described in the literatura and our patient had tpe C³ complement at a low level we ponder about its consumption fixed to Ag-Ac complexes, which could explain the episodes of fever and arthralgias. Finally, the view points of different authors are considered in relation to the fact that CDL would be caused by a different species of leishumania, or by immunological defect of the host.

Este estudo foi realizado em dois setores de fiação de uma mesma indústria têxtil, sendo um deles tecnologicamente mais moderno. Os objetivos foram identificar os fatores de risco físicos e organizacionais associados aos DORT nos dois setores e determinar a prevalência de sintomas de dor entre esses trabalhadores. Tendo como referencial a análise ergonômica, foram observadas as atividades de trabalho de 12 indivíduos; e 50 trabalhadores responderam a um questionário. Os fatores de risco físico identificados foram os seguintes: posturas inadequadas de ombro, trabalho na posição em pé, repetitividade de movimentos e aspectos ambientais desfavoráveis. Os fatores organizacionais identificados foram: ritmo intenso de trabalho, fragmentação e invariabilidade das tarefas, inexistência de pausas e impossibilidade de comunicação com os colegas. Foi encontrada prevalência de 60% e 76% de dor nos dois setores estudados, respectivamente. As conclusões mostram que investimentos em tecnologia que não acompanham mudanças na organização e nas condições de trabalho resultam na manutenção ou no agravamento das situações de risco reconhecidamente associadas aos DORT.Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMD affect workers in several occupations and are one of the major health problems in many countries.

    Full Text Available Nowadays the accurate translation of legal texts has become highly important as the mistranslation of a passage in a contract, for example, could lead to lawsuits and loss of money. Consequently, the translation of legal texts to other languages faces many difficulties and only professional translators specialised in legal translation should deal with the translation of legal documents and scholarly writings. The purpose of this paper is to analyze translation from three perspectives: translation quality, errors and difficulties encountered in translating legal texts and consequences of such errors in professional translation. First of all, the paper points out the importance of performing a good and correct translation, which is one of the most important elements to be considered when discussing translation. Furthermore, the paper presents an overview of the errors and difficulties in translating texts and of the consequences of errors in professional translation, with applications to the field of law. The paper is also an approach to the differences between languages (English and Romanian that can hinder comprehension for those who have embarked upon the difficult task of translation. The research method that I have used to achieve the objectives of the paper was the content analysis of various Romanian and foreign authors' works.

    Full Text Available In the contemporary business world, partners belonging to different nations, and hence different cultures, conduct business operations in either the language of one of the parties involved or in a third, neutral language, serving as lingua franca. Thus, language skills, as an essential component of the communicative competence, imply a certain extent of implicit or explicit translating and interpreting. The functionalist approaches in translation science, and most of all the Skopos theory by J. H. Vermeer, view translation as an intercultural transfer, which inevitably entails taking into account intercultural differences. As intercultural business communication is directly affected by the legal systems of the cultures involved, the communicating parties need to be acquainted with both the source and target legal systems. This is especially the case with English, as the Anglo-American legal system, based essentially on common law, differs substantially from continental law, to which most of the European countries belong. English as the world’s most commonly used lingua franca will have to be adapted to its new function by adopting terms and concepts from other cultures and, within the EU, take into consideration the existing discrepancies between the continental and the Anglo-American legal systems. In this paper, cases of non-equivalence regarding legal terms are illustrated with examples from company law. In conclusion, some linguistic and cultural implications of the use of English as lingua franca, as well as their impact on teaching and learning practices are presented.

The analysis of the norms of the service rights establishing the special administrative legal status of public servants is carried out. The author investigated the considerable list of the pre-revolutionary, soviet and modern legal literature devoted to topical issues of institute of public service. The main concept of this article is that the institute of public service is considered by us from a systemic position. For example, the content of the concept of "state position" from the point of view of both standard the contents, and opinions of representatives of the scientific doctrine is revealed. The author's definition of the legal category "state position" is offered. Besides, various concepts of understanding of the concept "public service" are presented in article. Thus the author paid attention to the fact that earlier in the domestic legislation there was no common opinion and standard establishment of the legal category of "public service". The main signs of the state position by the legislation of the Russian Empire are given in article. It is noted that in pre-revolutionary Russia legislators had identified the concepts of "public servant" and "official". This approach, according to the author, wasn't the advantage of the pre-revolutionary legislation, testifying to the low level of legislative equipment

    2016-01-01

    The role of law in regulating mental health detention has come to engender great contention in the legal and sociological disciplines alike. This conflict is multifaceted but is centred upon the extent to which law should control the psychiatric power of detention. In this manner the evolution of law regulating mental health detention has been seen in terms of a pendulous movement between two extremes of medicalism and legalism. Drawing on socio-legal literature, legislation, international treaties and case law this article examines the changing purpose of mental health law from an English and Council of Europe perspective by utilizing the concepts of medicalism, legalism and new legalism as descriptive devices before arguing that the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities goes further than all of these concepts and has the potential to influence mental health laws internationally.

    Full Text Available Legal education in South Africa has arrived at a discursive juncture that demands clarity on what the “purpose” of legal education should be. Debate on the purpose of legal education, more specifically for the Christian law student, becomes especially important in a society dominated by positivism, mate-rialism and pragmatism. With specific reference to the under-graduate Christian law student, this article firstly explains that the purpose of legal education should include the nurturing of the student’s belief – a belief encompassing his/her foun-dational perspective(s on reality. Secondly, in order to achieve the proper nurturing and development of the Christian law student’s belief, the importance of the teaching of legal philo-sophy is explained. In this regard, proposals are postulated pertaining to specific means by which such nurturing and development of the undergraduate Christian law student’s foundational belief can be attained.

    Full Text Available A prevalência de incapacidade e dependência funcional é maior em idosos e está intimamente associada à redução da massa muscular, que ocorre, até mesmo, em indivíduos saudáveis. A sarcopenia parece decorrer da interação complexa de distúrbios da inervação, diminuição de hormônios, aumento de mediadores inflamatórios e alterações da ingestão protéico-calórica que ocorrem durante o envelhecimento. A perda de massa e força muscular é responsável pela redução de mobilidade e aumento da incapacidade funcional e dependência. Quando associada à fragilidade, esta perda gera custos econômicos e sociais. Neste artigo, pretende-se avaliar aspectos relacionados à gênese da sarcopenia, bem como analisar possíveis opções terapêuticas e de prevenção.The high prevalence of inability and functional dependence is an important problem in elderly people. It is closely related with aging decrease of lean muscle mass that occurs even in healthy subjects. Skeletal muscle mass deficiency, or sarcopenia, results from complex interactions between innervations disturbances, hormones deficiency, inflammatory cytokines and restriction in caloric-proteic ingestion. Loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength results in disability and functional dependency that are associated to frailty in many elderly people. These conditions represent enormous economic and social budget. In this article, we evaluate pathogenesis of sarcopenia and discuss potential therapies.

  1. Constitutional Legal Regulation And The Reasons For The Legal Nihilism Existence In Modern Russian Society

    Full Text Available In the present article questions of constitutional and legal regulation and reason for the legal nihilism existence, methods and forms of fight against legal nihilism are considered. Reasons of low legal culture in modern Russian society and ways of the population's legal literacy increase in general are allocated. These problems are extremely topical today as at the 1990th when there was a reorientation of values, ideals and the principles and legislative base was significantly changed, people were simply lost, and it was extremely difficult for them to realize and accept new, absolutely other reality. Today peculiar spiritual and valuable "reconstruct" did not pass completely and the state is obliged to help citizens to carry out it most without serious consequences and successfully. In the conclusion authors draw a conclusion that: first, the problem of legal nihilism more than ever now is particularly acute for modern Russian society. The policy of the state has to be directed by the consciousness of citizens, who understand that law is the integral and obligatory part of the order in the country and that it is one of the basic for any person. Secondly, one of the ways to overcome the legal nihilism consists in the increase of the legal culture level along with the development of effective legal policy. Thirdly, legal idealism, reevaluation of opportunities in law gains especially wide circulation in the years of changes in response to social expectations an insufficiently skilled legislator forms a belief that it is enough to adopt good laws, and all problems would be solved.

  2. Constitutional Values, Therapeutic Jurisprudence and Legal Education in South Africa: Shaping our Legal Order

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available Law schools have a responsibility to remind law students that by studying law they have the power to transform thoughts, policies and lives, and that practising law is not just about financial rewards, but that its greatest reward is contributing to the betterment of society and ultimately to social change. The values and philosophies that law lecturers instil in law students can contribute to the legal order of the future; a legal order that supports a transformative South Africa. A need exists to bring legal education closer to the values enshrined in our Constitution. In addition to an extensive knowledge of legal principles, critical thinking and research skills, law students should critically engage with our constitutional values. The question remains: How do we transform legal education in South Africa? How do we change the way we teach law students? The introduction of concepts such as therapeutic jurisprudence enhanced by our constitutional values will ensure that we deliver graduates that display a commitment to our constitutional vales and an ability to engage critically with these values. It is important to establish a professional legal identity amongst students from their first year as this will assist in the development of a well-rounded graduate that can contribute to the legal order of the future. Letter writing and drafting skills, the value of plain language, moot court activities, alternative dispute resolution and clinical legal education provide opportunities to integrate valuable therapeutic jurisprudence principles into the curriculum and can allow students to critically engage with our constitutional values. By embodying these values they can improve the legal system, shape our legal order and promote progress toward an equal and free democratic society as envisaged by the Constitution.

  4. Legal considerations in utility stranded cost securitizations

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Rogers, D.B.; Jameson, J.M.; Yoong, D.K.L.

    1997-10-01

    The effects that state and federal law provisions, and accounting, tax and bankruptcy considerations have on securitization of utility stranded costs are complex and demand careful attention from government, utilities and their advisors. Although the legal structuring of a utility securitization is more involved than that of most other securitizations, its documentation is not particularly more complicated. To facilitate the movement towards a competitive electricity generation marketplace, many investor-owned utilities, regulators and state lawmakers are considering securitizations as a means of recovering stranded costs. Securitizations generally, and securitizations of stranded costs in particular, are subject to many legal requirements, all of which need to be satisfied in order to structure and consummate a successful transaction. Utility executives, regulators and lawmakers need to be cognizant of the legal requirements that will strongly influence the structure and success of any stranded cost legislation or securitization they propose. As of this writing, no U.S. stranded cost securitizations have been completed.

  5. Epilepsy: legal discrimination from negative to positive.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mani, K S

    1997-01-01

    Indian law equates epilepsy with temporary insanity and also prohibits a legally valid marriage for a person with epilepsy with inherent risk of divorce. This absurd law, unique to India and possibly Brazil, must be excised in toto. Repeated petitions, by the Indian Epilepsy Association, to the Federal Government, have resulted in only vague assurances and alternate methods are under consideration. There are no legal impediments to education or work. Strict regulations against driving have yielded place to lax rules wherein a person can drive a vehicle, even after a recent fit, provided he gets a certificate from any registered medical practitioner. The nascent medical insurance specifically excludes epilepsy from its ambit. The cost of anti-epileptic drugs includes a 40% tax akin to Value Added Tax in the West. We must consider the impact of these legal impediments on the social fabric of the individual in his/her milieu and vis-a-vis priorities in national development. PMID:9212628

    International nuclear trade is governed by the regime of legal control of nuclear energy, nuclear materials, knowledge of nuclear processes and weapons. Nuclear trade is under pinned by international agreements concerning physical protection and safeguards, the control of nuclear weapons, the protection of nuclear materials from terrorist action and third part liability. The political and geographical boundary changes of the past two years have significantly altered the background against which this regime has developed. Such changes have affected nuclear trade. The paper summarised the legal control of nuclear energy between States, identifies the areas of change which may affect this regime and the consequences for international trade. Conclusions are drawn as to the development of the international legal control of nuclear energy. (author). 21 refs.

    "In this paper we first discuss the two-stage process of legalizing induced abortion in Singapore, the initial legalization to make it available on a restrictive basis in 1970 and the complete liberalization to make it available on demand from 1975 onwards. The incidence of abortions registered in the last seventeen years and the major characteristics of aborters are analysed. The impact of abortion on the rapid decline of fertility to below-replacement level is highlighted, and the need to reduce abortion by amending the more liberal aspects of the law are considered at the end of the paper."

  11. Ocean energy: key legal issues and challenges

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ocean energy is a novel renewable energy resource being developed as part of the push towards a 'Blue Economy'. The literature on ocean energy has focused on technical, environmental, and, increasingly, social and political aspects. Legal and regulatory factors have received less attention, despite their importance in supporting this new technology and ensuring its sustainable development. In this Issue Brief, we set out some key legal challenges for the development of ocean energy technologies, structured around the following core themes of marine governance: (i) international law; (ii) environmental impacts; (iii) rights and ownership; (iv) consenting processes; and (v) management of marine space and resources.

    I examine the effects that the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), which legalized almost 3 million immigrants, had on crime in the United States. I exploit the IRCA's quasi-random timing as well as geographic variation in the intensity of treatment to isolate causal impacts. I find decreases in crime of 3-5 percent, primarily due to decline in property crimes, equivalent to 120,000-180,000 fewer violent and property crimes committed each year due to legalization. I calibrate a la...

This article claims that, while...... these major positions obviously provide interesting insights, none of them manage to make international law intelligible in a broader sense.

    Full Text Available In this paper, the authors discuss models of integrating gender issues, gender perspective and some gender aspects into the university education. In that context, the authors particularly focus on the concept of clinical legal education in legal clinics offering a specific practical model of teaching gender studies. Legal clinics provide for an innovative approach to gender education of prospective legal professional. The teaching method used in these legal clinics is aimed at raising students' awareness of gender issues and common gender-related biases. In the recent period, the Legal Clinic at the Law Faculty in Niš has achieved excellent results in the Clinical legal education program on the women's rights protection, which clearly proves that legal clinics have good prospects in general legal education.
