    Full Text Available En este trabajo construimos un mapa de la traducción del conocimiento sobre cáncer cervicouterino, basado en el análisis de redes de citación y en el uso de términos del “Gene Ontology” y del Medical Heading Subject. Identificamos dos campos de investigación sobre cáncer cervicouterino, pobremente conectados entre sí, que difieren en estructura, contenido y evolución. Un área esta centrada en el estudio de las causas de la enfermedad, mientras que la otra se centra en la atención al paciente. En la primera área encontramos un proceso de traducción del conocimiento en la que la investigación clínica y la investigación básica se comunican a través de un conjunto de artículos que consolidan la infección por el papilomavirus como la causa necesaria del cáncer cervicouterino. La primera área está orientada a prevenir la infección por el virus del papiloma humano y el subsecuente desarrollo del cáncer cervicouterino, mientras que la otra área se ocupa de la estadificación y tratamiento de la enfermedad.

    Full Text Available El presente estudio teórico realiza una revisión sobre la psicopatología del déficit atencional e hiperactividad, el cual se cataloga como un trastorno que se manifiesta por presentar dificultades crónicas en atención, impulsividad e hiperactividad que interfieren visiblemente en el desarrollo social, académico, ocupacional o recreativo del niño. Se inicia antes de los 7 años y puede en un 75% de los casos perdurar hasta la vida adulta. Afecta en torno a un 3% y un 5% de los niños; en Colombia se informa de una prevalencia alrededor del 15%. Es más común en hombres que en mujeres. Presenta comorbilidad con problemas de aprendizaje, trastorno oposicionista desafiante y con problemas de conducta, aunque también están asociadas algunas condiciones neuropsicológicas. Se acepta una multicausalidad del trastorno, que incluye un componente genético, factores perinatales, unas deficiencias a nivel neurobiológico en la corteza prefrontal, en las ondas alfa, theta y delta, a nivel bioquímico en la dopamina y norepinefrina, y deficiencias a nivel motivacional en la conducta gobernada por reglas.

    Full Text Available La neurobiología de la depresión involucra cambios estructurales del sistema nervioso relacionados con procesos cognitivos como la memoria y la atención. El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar el efecto a largo plazo de la sintomatología depresiva (SD en una tarea de memoria de trabajo visual con y sin interferencia atencional en estudiantes universitarios. Se utilizó un diseño factorial de 2 × 2 en el cual las variables independientes fueron la condición clínica (con SD y sin SD y la versión del Memonum (con o sin interferencia de color. Memonum es un software para evaluar memoria de trabajo por medio de la retención de dígitos directos, en dos versiones: una blanco-negro (sin interferencia y otra con un distractor atencional de color (con interferencia. Para la evaluación de la SD, 76 universitarios respondieron al CES-D, luego se les aplicó aleatoriamente una u otra versión de la prueba Memonum (con o sin interferencia de color, 2 semanas después de la detección de síntomas. De manera general, la SD no alteró a largo plazo el desempeño de los participantes en tareas de memoria de trabajo visual con o sin interferencia atencional. Sin embargo, se pudo establecer que la utilización de las estrategias para la ejecución de la tarea mnemónica dependió de la condición clínica, y la agrupación fue la menos usada por los participantes con SD.

A descriptive study. Included are all the articles presenting data produced by the authors themselves in the context of a research study and published in the sections of original articles, special contributions or clinical notes in the issues of the journal Atencion Primaria between 1984 and 1990. A data-gathering questionnaire was used, whose concordance was previously assessed blindly by two observers. There were 324 articles included. Of these, 93% were descriptive studies, out of which 27% were prevalence studies. Of these prevalence studies, 15.7% were conducted among the population as a whole. A questionnaire, which had been previously validated in 47.7% of cases, was used in 13.5% of the studies. Experimental research accounted for 21 studies (6.5%), of which 85% had an explicit control group. Only a small proportion are analytical studies. The majority of descriptive studies are carried out among the population attending for treatment.

    Full Text Available La función atencional es una compleja función en tanto requiere para su desarrollo de la estimulación de la estructura anatómica y funcional del cerebro en los primeros tiempos del desarrollo del bebé; de la disponibilidad de los padres para el cuidado y para la consideración de las necesidades afectivas del niño; y de prácticas de crianza que la favorezcan. Se presentan en el artículo resultados parciales de la investigación “La función atencional en la generación Milenium Interrogando el diagnóstico de ADD/ADHD” (2010-2012. Se trata de los resultados obtenidos por niños y niñas de entre 6 y 9 años que viven en situación de pobreza, y que cursan primer año en una escuela de contexto socio económico muy desfavorable de Montevideo. Se exponen las características que presentó la función atencional de los 14 niños estudiados. Se examinó la atención a través del Test de cancelación de Hale – Denckla (HDCT y del Índice de Ausencia de Distractibilidad (IAD de la escala Weschler para niños (WISC III. Para estudiar las fantasías y sentimientos vinculados a la atención, se utilizó un dispositivo gráfico: Situación Persona Prestando Atención. Los niños y niñas del estudio, obtuvieron en su mayoría rendimientos que se ubicaron por debajo de la media esperada para su edad, en el HDCT y en el IAD. Sus producciones gráficas mostraron fallas en la constitución subjetiva (en la diferenciación yo-no yo, ausencia de escena y de otro personaje, dando cuenta de la dificultad para significar al mundo y a los otros, necesarios en el proceso de atender. The attention function is a complex one since its development requires stimulation of the anatomic and functional structures of the brain in the first moments of the child's development. In addition, it needs that the parents be available for child care and the consideration of their emotional needs, as well as parenting practices that favor it. In this article I present

    Full Text Available El debate actual sobre los subtipos de Trastorno de Déficit Atencional/ Hiperactividad (TDAH se centra en determinar si las similitudes y diferencias halladas en la sintomatología asociada aportan evidencia para conceptualizar los subtipos como manifestaciones de distinto trastorno. El objetivo de este estudio retrospectivo ex post facto es investigar las diferencias entre los subtipos de TDAH con predominio de inatención (TDAH-I (n = 20 y TDAH combinado (TDAH-C (n = 39 en su historia prenatal, perinatal, del primer año y los problemas médicos posteriores. Los resultados indican que ambos subtipos presentan índices elevados de complicaciones obstétricas y problemas médicos. El subtipo TDAH-I se asocia con hemorragias prenatales, infecciones de oído y alergias, y el TDAH-C con cólicos del lactante y lesiones con sutura. La principal conclusión sugiere que las noxas de curso más continuo o dilatadas en el tiempo estarían más presentes en el grupo TDAH-I mientras que algunas características en el primer año y las lesiones que requieren suturas estarían más asociadas al subtipo TDAH-C.

En el presente trabajo, se utiliza un nuevo paradigma de priming atencional para explorar la existencia de este efecto secuencial dentro de cada ensayo en lugar de en diferentes ensayos. Para ello se realizaron dos experimentos en los que se manipuló el tipo de atención (selectiva vs. dividida, la congruencia de los estímulos y el tamaño absoluto de los mismos. Los resultados indican que el efecto de priming secuencial se debe al nivel jerárquico atendido, con independencia del tamaño absoluto de los estímulos, en tareas de atención selectiva (Experimento 1, y que es modulado por el tamaño absoluto de los estímulos tras el cambio a una tarea de atención dividida (Experimento 2. Por último, el efecto de priming secuencial tan solo aparece cuando los estímulos presentados son incongruentes.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho mostra o cerne - a metodologia - assim como a análise quantitativa e as conclusões de uma investigação sobre os efeitos promissores do redirecionamento atencional de alunos adultos a aspectos específicos da LE. O trabalho desencadeador da 'percepção consciente' desses alunos à importância e ao uso dos conectivos concessivos em períodos compostos por subordinação ocorreu por meio de uma sequência de intervenções na prática pedagógica, em atividades /tarefas interligadas tematicamente, que propiciaram uma maior recorrência e saliência do foco de tratamento. Os resultados promissores indicam que essas atividades geradoras de percepção consciente e conscientização foram as maiores responsáveis por uma alteração significativa na escalada positiva do nível de desempenho na produção escrita desses alunos.This paper shows the core - the methodology - as well as the quantitative analyses and promising findings of an investigation on the effects of redirecting adult learners' attentional foci to specific areas of a foreign language - English. The work carried out to trigger learners' awareness and 'noticing' of the concessive connectives in subordinate clauses took place during classroom practice and was implemented through a series of thematically-integrated tasks. Those aimed at exposing learners to a treatment focus that was more recurrent and salient. The findings suggest that activities which triggered the 'noticing' of the treatment foci were the main responsible for the significant changes in the use of the target structures in the written texts, and possibly for the rise of the participants' level of linguistic competence in their written production.

Conclusión: es necesario que los organismos de vigilancia del sgsss garanticen el cumplimiento de la normatividad vigente; además se requiere de un cambio en la legislación que supere los vacíos normativos, y una transformación en la forma de vinculación de los ciudadanos al sistema de salud que garantice el acceso universal y la atención integral de manera independiente de la estabilidad de las relaciones laborales Objective: to explore the healthcare provided for medical emergencies to patients with inconsistencies in their affiliation with the General System of Social Health Security (gsshs in various Health Providing Institutions (hpi of Medellin in 2012. Methodology: we conducted a qualitative study using Grounded Theory. Twenty semi-structured interviews were applied to healthcare professionals working at emergency departments and to patients with inconsistencies in their gsshs affiliation. Results: there is non-compliance with the regulations governing the provision of emergency services, which turns the administrative processes into barriers preventing access to the system and for providing healthcare in medical emergencies; this ultimately results in a lack of comprehensive healthcare

    2017-09-01

    In this work, the impact of trap states at the p-(Al)GaN/AlGaN interface has been investigated for the normally-off mode p-(Al)GaN/AlGaN/GaN heterostructure field-effect transistors (HFETs) by means of frequency dependent conductance. From the current-voltage (I-V) measurement, it was found that the p-AlGaN gate integrated device has higher drain current and lower gate leakage current compared to the p-GaN gate integrated device. We obtained the interface trap density and the characteristic time constant for the p-type gate integrated HFETs under the forward gate voltage of up to 6 V. As a result, the interface trap density (characteristic time constant) of the p-GaN gate device was lower (longer) than that of the p-AlGaN. Furthermore, it was analyzed that the trap state energy level of the p-GaN gate device was located at the shallow level relative to the p-AlGaN gate device, which accounts for different gate leakage current of each devices.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available The analyses substantially delineating "integrative studies of large urban areas as bio-physical-social complexes" and the suggestions by Pickett et al. in "Beyond Urban Legends" (Bioscience 2008 58 139-150 provide an initial framework for a theory of urban ecology. This article intends to contribute to the project by: 1 improving the philosophical rigor of critical concepts and epistemologies; 2 making explicit the complementary theoretical and empirical work in urban ecology already being done that can be better integrated, for example, studies from outside the U.S. and uses of actor network theory; 3 bringing forward more disciplines and theories which successfully deploy modes of thinking, research procedures, and practices more adequate to the phenomena at all scales and levels of particularity, i.e., micro, phenomenal, macro, to fill in some of the empirical gaps in the middle, specifically those having to do with human values and the richness of the everyday lifeworld. In addition to what is available within complexity theory itself, chief among the approaches to be utilized are phenomenology, ethnographic thick description, and actor network theory.

    To explore the relationship between the integrity of the lubricating film and the tribological behavior of a metal matrix self-lubricating composite, the friction and wear experiments of TiAl-Ag self-lubricating composites were carried out with a ball-on-disk configuration. Besides, an approximate model was developed for analyzing the relationship based on Blau's theory. The research results suggest that the friction and wear behavior of the TiAl-Ag self-lubricating composites changes in accordance with the formation conditions of the Ag-rich lubricating film. Specifically, the friction coefficients and wear rates of the TiAl-Ag self-lubricating composites decreased from high levels at full composite-counterface ball contact to low levels at full-film lubrication. Hence, the integrity of the lubricating film is a possible criterion for the self-lubricating property of the self-lubricating composites.

    An energetic micro-initiator through integrating Al/Ni nano-multilayers with Cu film bridge was investigated in this study. The Cu film bridge was initially fabricated with wet etching, and Al/Ni nano-multilayers were alternately deposited on the surface of Cu film bridge by magnetron sputtering. The periodic layer structure of Al/Ni nano-multilayers was verified by scanning electron microscopy. The exothermic reaction in Al/Ni nano-multilayers can be initiated with onset reaction temperature as low as 503 K, and the total reaction heat is about 774.6 J/g. This energetic micro-initiator exhibited improved performances with lower threshold voltage, smaller initiation energy, and higher explosion temperature compared with Cu film bridge. An extra violent explosion phenomenon with longer duration time and larger quantities of ejected product particles was detected on this energetic micro-initiator by high-speed camera. Overall, the electric explosion performances of Cu film bridge can be improved evidently with the integration of Al/Ni nano-multilayers.

    2017-08-01

    This study investigates the effects of a monolithic gate current booster integrated with an AlGaN/GaN-on-Si power-switching device. The integrated gate current booster was implemented by a single-stage inverter topology consisting of a recessed normally-off AlGaN/GaN MOS-HFET and a mesa resistor. The monolithically integrated gate current booster in a switching FET eliminated the parasitic elements caused by external interconnection and enabled fast switching operation. The gate charging and discharging currents were boosted by the integrated inverter, which significantly reduced both rise and fall times: the rise time was reduced from 626 to 41.26 ns, while the fall time was reduced from 554 to 42.19 ns by the single-stage inverter. When the packaged monolithic power chip was tested under 1 MHz hard-switching operation with VDD = 200 V, the switching loss was found to have been drastically reduced, from 5.27 to 0.55 W.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Knowles, C. R.

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Selective laser melting (SLM of Ti-6Al-4V has significant potential in the aerospace and biotechnology industries. SLM employs a focused laser beam to melt successive layers of metallic powder into complex components. This process can result in the generation of high thermally-induced residual stresses. These residual stresses, together with micro-flaws/ pores from the inherent fabrication process, may lead to premature fatigue crack initiation and propagation at relatively low cyclic stresses. The hole-drilling strain gauge method was used to evaluate residual stresses within SLM Ti-6Al-4V specimens, with the intention of understanding the associated mechanisms for the successful application of SLM Ti-6Al-4V in industry.

  20. Integration versus apartheid in post-Roman Britain: a response to Thomas et Al. (2008).

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pattison, John E

    2011-12-01

    The genetic surveys of the population of Britain conducted by Weale et al. and Capelli et al. produced estimates of the Germani immigration into Britain during the early Anglo-Saxon period, c.430-c.730. These estimates are considerably higher than the estimates of archaeologists. A possible explanation suggests that an apartheid-like social system existed in the early Anglo-Saxon kingdoms resulting in the Germani breeding more quickly than the Britons. Thomas et al. attempted to model this suggestion and showed that it was a possible explanation if all Anglo-Saxon kingdoms had such a system for up to 400 years. I noted that their explanation ignored the probability that Germani have been arriving in Britain for at least the past three millennia, including Belgae and Roman soldiers, and not only during the early Anglo-Saxon period. I produced a population model for Britain taking into account this long term, low level migration that showed that the estimates could be reconciled without the need for introducing an apartheid-like system. In turn, Thomas et al. responded, criticizing my model and arguments, which they considered persuasively written but wanting in terms of methodology, data sources, underlying assumptions, and application. Here, I respond in detail to those criticisms and argue that it is still unnecessary to introduce an apartheid-like system in order to reconcile the different estimates of Germani arrivals. A point of confusion is that geneticists are interested in ancestry, while archaeologists are interested in ethnicity: it is the bones, not the burial rites, which are important in the present context.

  7. Al transmon qubits on silicon-on-insulator for quantum device integration

    Science.gov (United States)

    Keller, Andrew J.; Dieterle, Paul B.; Fang, Michael; Berger, Brett; Fink, Johannes M.; Painter, Oskar

    2017-07-01

    We present the fabrication and characterization of an aluminum transmon qubit on a silicon-on-insulator substrate. Key to the qubit fabrication is the use of an anhydrous hydrofluoric vapor process which selectively removes the lossy silicon oxide buried underneath the silicon device layer. For a 5.6 GHz qubit measured dispersively by a 7.1 GHz resonator, we find T1 = 3.5 μs and T2* = 2.2 μs. This process in principle permits the co-fabrication of silicon photonic and mechanical elements, providing a route towards chip-scale integration of electro-opto-mechanical transducers for quantum networking of superconducting microwave quantum circuits. The additional processing steps are compatible with established fabrication techniques for aluminum transmon qubits on silicon.

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available The State of Qatar is presently facing the development of major transport infrastructure, to be finalized (A by 2022 for the planned FIFA World Cup and (B by 2030, as envisioned by the comprehensive national development planning strategy, also named Qatar National Vision (QNV-2030. The under-development metro system foresees the construction of four main lines. In addition, Doha, the capital city of the State of Qatar, is experiencing the progress of (1 prestigious mega projects and (2 several transit villages around the major metro stations. These projects are the manifestation of the deliberate attempt of Qatar to establish Doha as the service, economic and cultural hub of Middle East. Currently, traffic is considered a major concern: ‘Park-and-Ride’ facilities along train stations may reduce the general amount of vehicles on the road network and provide a ‘stress-free’ passenger experience when transitioning to and from the new Doha Metro System. Therefore, one of major challenges for urban planners is guaranteeing that all metro-stations and facilities (A are fully integrated within the urban context of their surroundings and (B provide multi modal transportation facilities. This urban planning strategy aims at reducing traffic through the design of compacted, mixed used transit villages, or Transit Oriented Developments (TODs. This paper explores the case of the neighborhood of Al-Qassar metro station. The exploration starts with the review of the relevant literature and the analysis of the site. Finally, the resultant planning-strategy for an integrated conceptual development of AL-Qassar-TOD envisions the development of a compact transit village, which contributes to reduce the traffic, to enhance pedestrian connectivity and to shape a liveable community.

    To optimize times and movements in a reload project of nuclear fuel in a nuclear plant, where they are programmed more three thousand maintenance activities, modifications, monitoring and inspection in a smaller period to 30 days, and additionally to optimize the individual and collective dose in the same one, turn out to be important challenges where the used strategies must be accompanied of a deep knowledge of the installation in the radiological sense and of the spaces conceptualized in the time. The attention to the detail makes possible that the objectives are fulfilled. During the shutdown of reload 9 of Unit 2 (9RU2) of the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde, the attention in detail applied in the critical points allowed a saving of dose of 0.7 Sv-person and one deviation of the goal of only +0.85% (smaller to 1% of the goal established like 2 challenge of Sv-person). Analysis of times, movements and training to develop skills in inspection activities in service that requires intervention in the external surface of the reactor vessel to examine the condition of welds, allowed reducing times of execution of 12 to 2 hours. Analysis of the environment and attention to the detail are techniques that allowed optimizing dose in 9RU2 and they were used in the project Power Increase. In this work the strategies of the surroundings and attention in detail applied in 9RU2 would appear and detail attention in the increase of power in the reload 13 Unit 1. (Author)

    In this work, two knowledge integration strategies based on multivariate curve resolution alternating least squares (MCR-ALS) were used for the simultaneous analysis of data from two metabolomic platforms. The benefits and the suitability of these integration strategies were demonstrated in a comparative study of the metabolite profiles from yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) samples grown in non-fermentable (acetate) and fermentable (glucose) carbon source. Untargeted metabolomics data acquired by capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (CE-MS) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) were jointly analysed. On the one hand, features obtained by independent MCR-ALS analysis of each dataset were joined to obtain a biological interpretation based on the combined metabolic network visualization. On the other hand, taking advantage of the common spectral mode, a low-level data fusion strategy was proposed merging CE-MS and LC-MS data before the MCR-ALS analysis to extract the most relevant features for further biological interpretation. Then, results obtained by the two presented methods were compared. Overall, the study highlights the ability of MCR-ALS to be used in any of both knowledge integration strategies for untargeted metabolomics. Furthermore, enhanced metabolite identification and differential carbon source response detection were achieved when considering a combination of LC-MS and CE-MS based platforms.

    Eerola et al.'s multi-layered model for the pleasure taken in music-elicited sadness is an important step in integrating explanatory accounts from different disciplines. Here, I would like to point out two theoretical inconsistencies that lie at the very root of the paradox and can have a major impact on future studies: first, the conflation of the transformation hypothesis and the co-activation hypothesis of sadness and pleasure, and second, the conflation of sadness that is elicited by musical instruments and that which is elicited by lyrics.

    Additive manufacturing (AM) of metals offers new possibilities for the production of complex structures. Up to now, investigations on the mechanical response of AM metallic parts show a significant spread and unexpected failures cannot be excluded. In this work, we focus on the detection of fatigue cracks through the integration of a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system in Ti-6Al-4V specimens. The working principle of the presented system is based on the integration of small capillaries that are capable of detecting fatigue cracks. Four-point bending fatigue tests have been performed on Ti-6Al-4V specimens with integrated capillaries and compared to the reference specimenswithout capillaries. Specimens were produced by conventional subtractive manufacturing of wrought material and AM, using the laser based Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process. In this study, we investigated the effect of the presence of the capillary on the fatigue strength and fatigue initiation location. Finite element (FEM) simulations were performed to validate the experimental test results. The presence of a drilled capillary in the specimens did not alter the fatigue initiation location. However, the laser based DED production process introduced roughness on the capillary surface that altered the fatigue initiation location to the capillary surface. The fatigue performance was greatly reduced when considering a printed capillary. It is concluded that the surface quality of the integrated capillary is of primary importance in order not to influence the structural integrity of the component to be monitored. PMID:28841186

    Full Text Available Superoxide dismutase (SOD, EC 1.15.1.1 plays an important antioxidant defense role in skins exposed to oxygen. We studied the inhibitory effects of Al3+ on the activity and conformation of manganese-containing SOD (Mn-SOD. Mn-SOD was significantly inactivated by Al3+ in a dose-dependent manner. The kinetic studies showed that Al3+ inactivated Mn-SOD follows the first-order reaction. Al3+ increased the degree of secondary structure of Mn-SOD and also disrupted the tertiary structure of Mn-SOD, which directly resulted in enzyme inactivation. We further simulated the docking between Mn-SOD and Al3+ (binding energy for Dock 6.3: −14.07 kcal/mol and suggested that ASP152 and GLU157 residues were predicted to interact with Al3+, which are not located in the Mn-contained active site. Our results provide insight into the inactivation of Mn-SOD during unfolding in the presence of Al3+ and allow us to describe a ligand binding via inhibition kinetics combined with the computational prediction.

    Rather than a commentary on a specific article, this work contains reflections on the concept of quality in provision of family planning services and its possible use to deflect family planning efforts. Quality is a difficult concept to define precisely. Applied to family planning, it may be defined as the totality of attributes possessed by a program that does not place impediments in the way of comfortable adoption of a contraceptive method. Another definition of quality, achievable only by a long list of ideal characteristics which are often expensive and sometimes unattainable, has been and continues to be used by enemies of family planning to slow its diffusion; they hold that if perfect quality is not offered, it is better to offer nothing. A specific tactic of this group is to oppose the quantity of services with their quality. The hard-fought campaign to discredit the measurement of concrete goals and results is part of this strategy. But it is apparent that without a reasonably satisfactory quality of service, no program would achieve significant growth. People would not continue to come, and in growing numbers, to a program where they received poor quality service. Each goal, each statistic, each percentage represents human problems confronted and resolved by programs and personnel. Profamilia has become 1 of the largest nongovernmental family planning organizations. Profamilia has always paid attention to the quality of its services and has conducted numerous studies to assess results and identify shortcomings. The high percentage of positive results attests to the quality of Profamilia programs. In an age of scarce resources and tight budgets, the objective of family planning programs is to provide an austere but acceptable quality of attention so that the quantity of services will be sufficient to meet demand. Program elements that have a real cost without offering a measurable benefit should be avoided. Another problem is that integrated programs that

    Chip-scale chemical sensors were demonstrated using optical waveguides consisting of amorphous silicon (a-Si) and aluminum nitride (AlN). The mid-Infrared (mid-IR) transparent AlN thin film was prepared by room temperature sputtering that exhibited a high Al:N elemental homogeneity. The Si-on-AlN waveguides were fabricated by complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) process. A sharp fundamental mode and low optical loss of 2.21 dB/cm were obtained. Label-free chemical identification and real-time monitoring were performed by scanning the mode spectrum while the waveguide was exposed to various chemicals. Continuous tracing of heptane and methanol were accomplished by measuring the waveguide intensity attenuation at λ = 2.5 - 3.0 μm that covered the characteristic -CH and -OH absorptions. The monolithically integrated Si-on-AlN waveguides established a new sensor platform that can operate over a broad mid-IR regime, thus enabling photonic chips for label-free chemical detection.

    In general, to realize full color, inorganic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are diced from respective red-green-blue (RGB) wafers consisting of inorganic crystalline semiconductors. Although this conventional method can realize full color, it is limited when applied to microdisplays requiring high resolution. Designing a structure emitting various colors by integrating both AlGaInP-based and InGaN-based LEDs onto one substrate could be a solution to achieve full color with high resolution. Herein, we introduce adhesive bonding and a chemical wet etching process to monolithically integrate two materials with different bandgap energies for green and red light emission. We successfully transferred AlGaInP-based red LED film onto InGaN-based green LEDs without any cracks or void areas and then separated the green and red subpixel LEDs in a lateral direction; the dual color LEDs integrated by the bonding technique were tunable from the green to red color regions (530-630 nm) as intended. In addition, we studied vertically stacked subpixel LEDs by deeply analyzing their light absorption and the interaction between the top and bottom pixels to achieve ultra-high resolution.

    To say that someone possesses integrity is to claim that that person is almost predictable about responses to specific situations, that he or she can prudentially judge and to act correctly. There is a closed interrelationship between integrity and autonomy, and the autonomy rests on the deeper moral claim of all humans to integrity of the person. Integrity has two senses of significance for medical ethic: one sense refers to the integrity of the person in the bodily, psychosocial and intellectual elements; and in the second sense, the integrity is the virtue. Another facet of integrity of the person is la integrity of values we cherish and espouse. The physician must be a person of integrity if the integrity of the patient is to be safeguarded. The autonomy has reduced the violations in the past, but the character and virtues of the physician are the ultimate safeguard of autonomy of patient. A field very important in medicine is the scientific research. It is the character of the investigator that determines the moral quality of research. The problem arises when legitimate self-interests are replaced by selfish, particularly when human subjects are involved. The final safeguard of moral quality of research is the character and conscience of the investigator. Teaching must be relevant in the scientific field, but the most effective way to teach virtue ethics is through the example of the a respected scientist.

    In the conduct of neuroscience research, methodological choices and theoretical claims often reveal underlying metamethodological and ontological commitments. Koelsch et al. [1] accentuate such commitments in their description of four "neuroanatomically distinct systems," each the substrate of "a specific class of affects" (p. 1). Explication of those classes of affect require theoretical integration across methodologically diverse disciplines, including "psychology, neurobiology, sociology, anthropology, and psycholinguistics" (p. 3). (Philosophy is noticeably missing from this list, but several aspects of the authors' stance indicate that it is not ignored.)

  12. Integrating empirically dissolved organic matter quality for WHAM VI using the DOM optical properties: a case study of Cu-Al-DOM interactions.

    Metal speciation is important for understanding the toxicity of metals in aquatic systems, and can be predicted for mixtures of metals in presence of dissolved organic matter (DOM) with thermodynamic models such as WHAM VI. The influence of the DOM source (quality) has been demonstrated, but is presently neglected in predicting Cu activity (WHAM VI). Here we determined the effect of aluminum (Al) competition on copper (Cu) complexation for four different DOMs, from a high-colored DOM (more humic) to a low-colored DOM (less humic). In presence of Al, free Cu activities (defined as free ion activity) increased, consistent with competition between Cu and Al for the same binding sites on all DOM. The apparent competition decreased with increasing DOM color. Equilibrium modeling of Cu speciation with WHAM VI explained 49% of the variance in measured Cu activity. When modified to integrate DOM quality using a new empirical coefficient F related to DOM optical properties, Cu activities predicted from WHAM VI were significantly improved to about 80% of the observed variance explained. The effects of Al on Cu activity were well predicted by WHAM VI. Subsequently, we compared the relative effects of DOM concentration, DOM quality, and Al competition with other determinants of Cu activity represented in legislation and scientific literature (pH and hardness), and qualitatively ranked them by their influence on Cu activity for normal ranges encountered in fresh waters using WHAM VI. Our experimental results indicate that DOM quality is an important variable that should be included in predictive models of ion speciation (WHAM VI) and eco-toxicological models such as the biotic ligand model (BLM).

    Reports an error in "An integrative formal model of motivation and decision making: The MGPM*" by Timothy Ballard, Gillian Yeo, Shayne Loft, Jeffrey B. Vancouver and Andrew Neal (Journal of Applied Psychology, 2016[Sep], Vol 101[9], 1240-1265). Equation A3 contained an error. This correct equation is provided in the erratum. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2016-28692-001.) We develop and test an integrative formal model of motivation and decision making. The model, referred to as the extended multiple-goal pursuit model (MGPM*), is an integration of the multiple-goal pursuit model (Vancouver, Weinhardt, & Schmidt, 2010) and decision field theory (Busemeyer & Townsend, 1993). Simulations of the model generated predictions regarding the effects of goal type (approach vs. avoidance), risk, and time sensitivity on prioritization. We tested these predictions in an experiment in which participants pursued different combinations of approach and avoidance goals under different levels of risk. The empirical results were consistent with the predictions of the MGPM*. Specifically, participants pursuing 1 approach and 1 avoidance goal shifted priority from the approach to the avoidance goal over time. Among participants pursuing 2 approach goals, those with low time sensitivity prioritized the goal with the larger discrepancy, whereas those with high time sensitivity prioritized the goal with the smaller discrepancy. Participants pursuing 2 avoidance goals generally prioritized the goal with the smaller discrepancy. Finally, all of these effects became weaker as the level of risk increased. We used quantitative model comparison to show that the MGPM* explained the data better than the original multiple-goal pursuit model, and that the major extensions from the original model were justified. The MGPM* represents a step forward in the development of a general theory of decision making during multiple-goal pursuit. (PsycINFO Database Record (c

    : At a time when death and disability linked to problematic substance use have reached crisis levels, integration of substance use disorder (SUD) services into primary care settings is a clear national priority. Incentive-based interventions can catalyze such adoption, but have thus far demonstrated limited efficaciousness. Behavioral Economics can inform efforts to incentivize healthcare providers to adopt SUD interventions. Choice architecture principles dictate pegging rewards to defined quality metrics, improving provider information about effective and cost-effective practices, and reducing barriers to SUD service provision through technological tools, tackling stigma, and addressing real and perceived regulatory burdens and risks. Additional research is needed to inform these and other key elements in the choice environment designed to facilitate the integration of SUD care into primary care. Success in the deployment of the "cascade of care" model in primary care settings during the HIV/AIDS epidemic provides room for optimism, but also underscores the urgency of rapid scale-up in diagnostic and treatment services for SUD to address the burgeoning opioid crisis.

    Recently the topic of the quality of surface water (rivers - lakes) and the sea is an important topics at different levels. It is known that there are two major groups of pollutants: Point Source Pollution (PSP) and non-point Source pollution (NPSP). Historically most of the surface water pollution protection programs dealing with the first set of pollutants which comes from sewage pipes and factories drainage. With the growing need for current and future water security must stand on the current reality of the coastal rivers basin in terms of freshness and cleanliness and condition of water pollution. This research aims to assign the NPS pollutants that reach Al Abrash River and preparation of databases and producing of risk Pollution map for NPS pollutants in order to put the basin management plan to ensure the reduction of pollutants that reach the river. This research resulted of establishing of Databases of NPSP (Like pesticides and fertilizers) and producing of thematic maps for pollution severity and pollution risk based on the pollution models designed in GIS environment and utilizing from remote sensing data. Preliminary recommendations for managing these pollutants were put.

    Non destructive testing has been gaining a large interest in the field of the diagnostics applied to the cultural heritage. The exceptional and brittle nature of the investigated structures, in fact, discourages invasive investigation techniques even more than in other applications. In particular, non-destructive testing can be exploited for the detection of fractures or for the investigation of pillars and columns within churches of particular historical and/or architectural relevance. This has been recently done in the cathedral of Matera [1], and previously in the crypt of the Romanesque cathedral of Otranto [2]. In both cases, integrated prospecting has been performed, where GPR data have been considered together with acoustic sounding or resistive measurements and even microclimatic investigation. Integrated prospecting is a good help to perform not only the diagnosis of the structure but also its restoring and continuative preservation. In this contribution, we propose a case study where integrated methodologies have been adopted for the analysis of the conservation state of the architectural elements which constitute the church of S.Giovanni al Sepolcro, in Brindisi (Southern Italy). This church is a precious artifact of medieval age, which recently underwent restoration works. IBAM-CNR has been put in charge of the task to analyse the constitutive materials, the superficial finishing (paintings, patinas, plasters etc.) and the causes and the products of the decay. The information retrieved from the analysis of the materials have been fruitfully integrated with non-destructive testing of the structure. Some results will be shown at the conference.

    A metal ion source prototype has been developed: a combination of magnetron sputter technology with 2.45 GHz electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) ion source technology—a so called magnetron ECR ion source (MECRIS). An integrated ring-shaped sputter magnetron with an Al target is acting as a powerful metal atom supply in order to produce an intense current of singly charged metal ions. Preliminary experiments show that an Al{sup +} ion current with a density of 167 μA/cm{sup 2} is extracted from the source at an acceleration voltage of 27 kV. Spatially resolved double Langmuir probe measurements and optical emission spectroscopy were used to study the plasma states of the ion source: sputter magnetron, ECR, and MECRIS plasma. Electron density and temperature as well as Al atom density were determined as a function of microwave and sputter magnetron power. The effect of ECR heating is strongly pronounced in the center of the source. There the electron density is increased by one order of magnitude from 6 × 10{sup 9} cm{sup −3} to 6 × 10{sup 10} cm{sup −3} and the electron temperature is enhanced from about 5 eV to 12 eV, when the ECR plasma is ignited to the magnetron plasma. Operating the magnetron at constant power, it was observed that its discharge current is raised from 1.8 A to 4.8 A, when the ECR discharge was superimposed with a microwave power of 2 kW. At the same time, the discharge voltage decreased from about 560 V to 210 V, clearly indicating a higher plasma density of the MECRIS mode. The optical emission spectrum of the MECRIS plasma is dominated by lines of excited Al atoms and shows a significant contribution of lines arising from singly ionized Al. Plasma emission photography with a CCD camera was used to prove probe measurements and to identify separated plasma emission zones originating from the ECR and magnetron discharge.

    The current transparent oxide semiconductors (TOSs) technology provides flexibility and high performance. In this study, multi-stack nano-layers of TOSs were designed for three-dimensional analysis of amorphous indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (a-IGZO) based thin film transistors (TFTs). In particular, the effects of torsional and compressive stresses on the nano-sized active layers such as the a-IGZO layer were investigated. Numerical simulations were carried out to investigate the structural integrity of a-IGZO based TFTs with three different thicknesses of the aluminum oxide (Al2O3) insulator (δ = 10, 20, and 30 nm), respectively, using a commercial code, COMSOL Multiphysics. The results are graphically depicted for operating conditions.

    A laser based surface nitriding process was adopted to further enhance the osseo-integration, corrosion resistance, and tribological properties of the commonly used bioimplant alloy, Ti-6Al-4V. Earlier preliminary osteoblast, electrochemical, and corrosive wear studies of laser nitrided titanium in simulated body fluid clearly revealed improvement of cell adhesion as well as enhancement in corrosion and wear resistance but mostly lacked the in-depth fundamental understanding behind these improvements. Therefore, a novel integrated experimental and theoretical approach were implemented to understand the physical phenomena behind the improvements and establish the property-structure-processing correlation of nitrided surface. The first principle and thermodynamic calculations were employed to understand the thermodynamic, electronic, and elastic properties of TiN for enthalpy of formation, Gibbs free energy, density of states, and elastic properties of TiN were investigated. Additionally, open circuit potential and cyclic potentio-dynamic polarization tests were carried out in simulated body fluid to evaluate the corrosion resistance that in turn linked with the experimentally measured and computationally predicted surface energies of TiN. From these results, it is concluded that the enhancement in the corrosion resistance after laser nitriding is mainly attributed to the presence of covalent bonding via hybridization among Ti (p) and N (d) orbitals. Furthermore, mechanical properties, such as, Poisson׳s ratio, stiffness, Pugh׳s ductility criteria, and Vicker׳s hardness, predicted from first principle calculations were also correlated to the increase in wear resistance of TiN. All the above factors together seem to have contributed to significant improvement in both wear and corrosion performance of nitride surface compared to the bare Ti-6Al-4V in physiological environment indicating its suitability for bioimplant applications.

    We investigated the effect of Enterococcus faecium on phagocytic activity, antioxidative status in vivo and the effect of E. faecium and 0.4% concentration of Thymus vulgaris essential oil (EO) on the duodenal tissue integrity in vitro in laying hens. The birds were fed the same standard diets and were divided into four groups. E. faecium was added to the drinking water for the second and fourth groups. EO was added to special chambers for measuring trans-epithelial electrical resistance (TEER) for the third and fourth groups only. TEER was lower in groups where EO was added, but in the group with E. faecium TEER was not changed significantly. Our results show that EO at 0.4% concentration may negatively affect intestine integrity, and the probiotic strain E. faecium AL41 is able to eliminate this effect and can strengthen non-specific immunity. To confirm our findings further histopathological investigations of intestinal tissue are needed. 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Synopsis Genes linked to ALS susceptibility are being identified at an increasing rate owing to advances in molecular genetic technology. Genetic mechanisms in ALS pathogenesis appear to exert major effects in ~10% of patients, but genetic factors at some level may be important components of disease risk in most ALS patients. Identification of gene variants associated with ALS has informed concepts of the pathogenesis of ALS, aided the identification of therapeutic targets, facilitated research to develop new ALS biomarkers, and supported the establishment of clinical diagnostic tests for ALS-linked genes. Translation of this knowledge to ALS therapy development is ongoing. PMID:26515623

    Santello et al. [1] review an impressive amount of work on the control of biological and artificial hands that demonstrates how the concept of synergies can lead to a successful integration of robotics and neuroscience. Is it possible to generalize the same approach to the control of biological and artificial limbs and bodies beyond the hand? The human hand synergies that appear most relevant for robotic hands are those defined at the kinematic level, i.e. postural synergies [2]. Postural synergies capture the geometric relations among the many joints of the hand and allow for a low dimensional characterization and synthesis of the static hand postures involved in grasping and manipulating a large set of objects. However, many other complex motor skills such as walking, reaching, throwing, and catching require controlling multi-articular time-varying trajectories rather than static postures. Dynamic control of biological and artificial limbs and bodies, especially when geometric and inertial parameters are uncertain and the joints are compliant, poses great challenges. What kind of synergies might simplify the dynamic control of motor skills involving upper and lower limbs as well as the whole body?

    The E-Energy-Project eTelligence built and evaluated an energy market with low admission barriers. This market allowed different actors from the smart grid domain to trade electricity products. During a one year field trial the market was operated with real financial transactions between market participants taking place. To this end, it was necessary to completely integrate the market into energy trading processes currently in place. In addition to the field trial, simulations were carried out in order to demonstrate participation of a distribution system operator and to evaluate intraday-transactions with a high number of simulated market participants. This paper describes the market and gives information about the results attained during its operation. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The goal of this project is to evaluate the implementation of an integrated and interdisciplinary program for prevention and management of cardiometabolic risk (PCMR. The intervention is based on the Chronic Care Model. The study will evaluate the implementation of the PCMR in 6 of the 12 health and social services centres (CSSS in Montréal, and the effects of the PCMR on patients and the practice of their primary care physicians up to 40 months following implementation, as well as the sustainability of the program. Objectives are: 1-to evaluate the effects of the PCMR and their persistence on patients registered in the program and the practice of their primary care physicians, by implementation site and degree of exposure to the program; 2-to assess the degree of implementation of PCMR in each CSSS territory and identify related contextual factors; 3-to establish the relationships between the effects observed, the degree of PCMR implementation and the related contextual factors; 4-to assess the impact of the PCMR on strengthening local services networks. Methods/Design The evaluation will use a mixed design that includes two complementary research strategies. The first strategy is similar to a quasi-experimental "before-after" design, based on a quantitative approach; it will look at the program's effects and their variations among the six territories. The effects analysis will use data from a clinical database and from questionnaires completed by participating patients and physicians. Over 3000 patients will be recruited. The second strategy corresponds to a multiple case study approach, where each of the six CSSS constitutes a case. With this strategy, qualitative methods will set out the context of implementation using data from semi-structured interviews with program managers. The quantitative data will be analyzed using linear or multilevel models complemented with an interpretive approach to qualitative data analysis

    Pelowski et al. present a holistic framework within which the multiple processes underlying art viewing can be systematically organized [1]. The proposed model integrates a broad range of dynamic mechanisms, which can effectively account for empirical as well as humanistic perspectives on art perception. Particularly challenging is the final section of the article, where the authors draw a correspondence between behavioral and cognitive components and brain structures (as well as networks). Here, we comment on the implications of the Vienna Integrated Model of Art Perception for art therapy in clinical populations, particularly focusing on (1) expanding Pelowski et al.'s considerations of the Default Mode Network (DMN) into discussion of its relevance to mental diseases, and (2) elaborating on empathic resonance in aesthetic contexts and the capacity of art to build up empathic skills.

    Gian Franco Rosso Elorriaga

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available La tendencia moderna a objetivar la responsabilidad civil ha generado diferentes incoherencias sistémicas que exigen la introducción de elementos de equilibrio entre la responsabilidad subjetiva y la responsabilidad objetiva. Ante la permanente infracción al principio de la tipicidad, se propone como vía de equilibrio el reconocimiento del principio según el cual no puede haber responsabilidad objetiva sin limitación cuantitativa de la indemnización. Sin embargo, este principio entraría aparentemente en contradicción con otro, denominado principio de la reparación integral del daño. El artículo analiza dicha posible contradicción desde el fundamento moral de ambas clases de responsabilidad, así como del principio de la reparación integral del daño. Además, profundiza la problemática a partir de su elemento esencial, como es el daño resarcible, de modo de verificar qué elementos puede aportar a este aquel principio. En esta perspectiva, se estudia si tiene verdaderamente un carácter normativo, y qué cambios a su respecto produce su reconocimiento expreso a nivel legal o constitucional. Por último, se trata el principio de la reparación integral bajo un concepto distinto al tradicional y que ha venido sosteniéndose en los últimos años, a fin de confrontarlo con la citada contradicción. Al término del artículo, se sintetizan las conclusiones alcanzadas, las cuales concuerdan con la inexistencia de la contradicción entre el principio según el cual no hay responsabilidad objetiva sin limitación cuantitativa y el principio de la reparación integral del daño.

    We present a multi-segment photonic crystal coupled cavity laser device on GaSb with a microstructured internal photodiode. This monolithically integrated power monitor is added as a third segment to a coupled cavity laser and is separated from the active device by six rows of two-dimensional photonic crystals, acting as highly reflecting mirrors. There is no additional fabrication step needed to integrate this feature into the coupled cavity laser, resulting in a highly integrated laser device of only 800 {mu}m length. The device with lasing wavelength around 1955 nm shows single mode emission over a tuning range of as large as 16 nm and exhibits output powers of up to 9 mW.

    2015-06-01

    Recent efforts to uncover the neural underpinnings of emotional experiences have provided a foundation for novel neurophysiological theories of emotions, adding to the existing body of psychophysiological, motivational, and evolutionary theories. Besides explicitly modeling human-specific emotions and considering the interactions between emotions and language, Koelsch et al.'s original contribution to this challenging endeavor is to identify four brain areas as distinct "affect systems" which differ in terms of emotional qualia and evolutionary pathways [1]. Here, we comment on some features of this promising Quartet Theory of Emotions, focusing particularly on evolutionary and biological aspects related to the four affect systems and their relation to prevailing emotion theories, as well as on the role of music-induced emotions.

  3. [Environmental factors in ALS].

    2014-05-01

    ALS is likely to be a disorder of multifactorial origin. Among all the factors that may increase the risk of ALS, environmental ones are being studied for many years, but in the recent years, several advances have pointed to a new interest in their potential involvement in the disease process, especially for the cyanotoxin BMAA. Food containing BMAA has been found on Guam, a well-known focus of ALS/parkinsonism/dementia and high levels of BMAA have been identified into the brain of these patients. The BMAA cyanotoxin is potentially ubiquitous and have also been found into the food of patients who died from ALS both in Europe and USA. BMAA can be wrongly integrated into the protein structure during mRNA traduction, competing with serine. This may induce abnormal protein folding and a subsequent cell death. Heavy metals, such as lead or mercury may be directly toxic for neuronal cells. Several works have suggested an increased risk of ALS in individuals chronically exposed to these metals. Exposure to pesticides has been suggested to be linked to an increased risk of developing ALS. The mechanism of their toxicity is likely to be mediated by paraoxonases.

    Emotions are phylogenetically ancient and involve complex interactions of neural, behavioral, and physiological processes. A complete theory of emotions must incorporate, or at least be informed by, current knowledge from neurobiology and comparative psychology [1]. The Quartet Theory of Human Emotions by Koelsch and colleagues [2] is therefore a welcome step towards a more integrative affective science.

    The progressive electrification of the power train for passenger cars currently brings a massive cost increase of the overall system itself. The additional cost result primarily due to the additional systems and components, such as battery, generator, electric motor, power electronics and the like causes, but is also increased due to the extended complexity in the control of these systems and their integration into the vehicle. Even in case of economies of scale in mass production for electric components maintaining well known power train technologies still remain substantial additional cost compared with non-electrified power trains. AVL's approach to cost reduction for comparable performance and fuel consumption target values with current production solutions is a radical and continuous integration of functions. The concept of functional integration critically scrutinizes and redefines existing interfaces, based on the established manufacturing and assembly sequences in mass production. This functional integration considers not only the singular main elements of the drive train, such as engine, gearbox and electric motor, but it also presents innovative solutions that logically bring these key elements together, in terms of overall power train function. Despite the high functional integration, it was possible to realize a modular drive train family, consisting of a conventional drive train, mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid up to a range extender and a pure electric drive line. The compactness and the wide spread of performance range of the modular AVL e-Fusion family allows an universal application for A, B, and C segment passenger cars, whereas the 2 cylinder TGDI engine is capable to also cover the entra-/volume-power class in the C segment. The 3 cylinder TGDI is also able to cover higher vehicle segments. Center of attention was also paid on the NVH behavior of engines with lower number of cylinders.

    The study of emotions has been an important topic in cognitive and affective neuroscience in the last decades. In the present manuscript, Koelsch et al. [1] propose a new neurobiological framework based on four emotional core systems (the Quartet), involved in different aspects of human emotion processing. This is an interesting theory that goes beyond classical emotion classification to describe the emotional experience based on four main cerebral components (brainstem, diencephalon, hippocampus, and orbitofrontal cortex). This approach allows the description of different classes of affects, including those that are unique in humans as emotional responses associated to abstract stimuli (for example, aesthetical stimuli such as art and music).

    In this work, an integrated single chip dual cavity VCSEL has been designed which comprises an electrically pumped 980 nm bottom VCSEL section fabricated using GaInAs/AlGaAs MQW active region and a 1550 nm top VCSEL section constructed using GaInAs/AlGaInAs MQW active region but optically pumped using half of the produced 980 nm light entering into it from the electrically pumped bottom cavity. In this design, the active region of the intracavity structure 980 nm VCSEL consists of 3 quantum wells (QWs) using Ga0.847In0.153As, 2 barriers using Al0.03Ga0.97As, and 2 separate confinement heterostructures (SCH) using the same material as the barrier. The active region of the top emitting 1550 nm VCSEL consists of 3 QWs using Ga0.47In0.52As, 2 barriers using Al0.3Ga0.17In0.53As, and 2 SCHs using the same material as the barrier. The top DBR and the bottom DBR mirror systems of the 1550 nm VCSEL section plus the top and bottom DBR mirror systems of the 980 nm VCSEL section have been formed using GaAs/Al0.8Ga0.2As. Computations show that the VCSEL is capable of producing 8.5 mW of power at 980 nm from the bottom side and 2 mW of power at the 1550 nm from top side.

    Review by Koelsch et al. [10] presents an interdisciplinary theory of emotions, including a neurobiological emotion theory originating in four core emotional systems. The Quartet Theory (QT) includes specifically human emotions and considers the role of language for emotions. This comment considers questions about how the QT can address aesthetic emotions, what class of emotions they are, and what their function in cognition is. Can QT help defining aesthetic emotions neurally and functionally? Such a definition of aesthetic emotions would be necessary for their scientific exploration, because as widely used today there is no definition, aesthetics is defined through art, and art through aesthetics. Since contents of many art museums are not accepted as art by many artists and admirers of art, it is not clear what should be the subject of aesthetic emotions research.

    The Quartet Theory of Human Emotion (QT) proposed by Koelsch et al. [1] adds to existing affective models, e.g. by directing more attention to emotional contagion, attachment-related and non-goal-directed emotions. Such an approach seems particularly appropriate to modelling musical emotions, and music is indeed a recurring example in the text, used to illustrate the distinct characteristics of the affect systems that are at the centre of the theory. Yet, it would seem important for any theory of emotion to account for basic functions such as prediction and anticipation, which are only briefly mentioned. Here we propose that QT, specifically its focus on emotional contagion, attachment-related and non-goal directed emotions, might help generate new ideas about a largely neglected source of emotion - rhythm - a musical property that relies fundamentally on the mechanism of prediction.

    Dielectric loss from two-level systems (TLSs) formed by local defects have shown a significant impact on the qubit coherence time. These defects can originate in the insulation material for superconducting wires isolation or in the Josephson junction tunnel barrier material. Due to the complexity of the qubit circuit fabrication process, identifying the contribution from each decoherence source is challenging. In an effort to address this issue, we have developed superconducting qubit that consists of full epitaxially-grown NbN/AlN/NbN Josephson junctions in NbN coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonator circuit. The dielectric loss introduced from TLFs in tunnel junction barrier has been largely reduced due to the unique epitaxial feature of the tunnel junction. The quality factor Qi of the CPW resonator was measured and the dielectric loss tanδ is 3×10-4. The relaxation time inferred from the measured resonator quality factor was comparable to the qubit relaxation time.

    For several years, a rethinking in the tourist paradise Mallorca took place. Due to the limited land resources it was clear to the public authorities that the waste cannot be deposited unlimited and unsorted. An ambitious concept for the waste management has to be developed, and an integrated system has to be planned. The ambiguous goal is zero landfill: In future, as many waste materials as possible should be led back in the product cycle. The non-recyclable materials should be incinerated efficiently and utilized energetically.

    Literature, music and the arts have long attested to the complexity of human emotions. Hitherto, psychological and biological theories of emotions have largely neglected this rich heritage. In their review Koelsch and colleagues [1] have embarked upon the pioneering endeavour of integrating the diverse perspectives in emotion research. Noting that the focus of prior neurobiological theories relies mainly on animal studies, the authors sought to complement this body of research with a model of complex ("moral") emotions in humans (henceforth: complex emotions). According to this novel framework, there are four main interacting affective centres in the brain. Each centre is associated with a dominant affective function, such as ascending activation (brainstem), pain/pleasure (diencephalon), attachment-related affects (hippocampus) or moral emotions and unconscious cognitive appraisal (orbitofrontal cortex). Furthermore, language is ascribed a key role in (a) the communication of subjective feeling (reconfiguration) and (b) in the conscious regulation of emotions (by means of logic and rational thought).

    We report on realization of the InGaAs/GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well laser grown by metallorganic chemical vapor deposition on a virtual Ge-on-Si(001) substrate. The Ge buffer layer has been grown on a nominal Si(001) substrate by solid-source molecular beam epitaxy. Such Ge buffer possessed rather good crystalline quality and smooth surface and so provided the subsequent growth of the high-quality A{sub 3}B{sub 5} laser structure. The laser operation has been demonstrated under electrical pumping at 77 K in the continuous wave mode and at room temperature in the pulsed mode. The emission wavelengths of 941 nm and 992 nm have been obtained at 77 K and 300 K, respectively. The corresponding threshold current densities were estimated as 463 A/cm{sup 2} at 77 K and 5.5 kA/cm{sup 2} at 300 K.

    The target paper by Santello et al. [1] uses the observation that hand shape during grasping can be described by a small set of basic postures, or ;synergies,; to describe the possible neural basis of motor control during this complex behavior. In the literature, the term ;synergy; has been used with a number of different meanings and is still loosely defined, making it difficult to derive concrete analogs of corresponding neural structure. Here, I will define ;synergy; broadly, as a set of parameters bound together by a pattern of correlation. With this definition, it can be argued that behavioral synergies are just one facet of the correlational structuring used by the brain to generate behavior. As pointed out in the target article, the structure found in synergies is driven by the physical constraints of our bodies and our surroundings, combined with the behavioral control imparted by our nervous system. This control itself is based on correlational structure which is likely to be a fundamental property of brain function.

It is not possible to completely ignore the fact that the Jebel Hafit and its foothills are partly crossed by an international boundary. In case of political tensions, this may cause some difficulties for the management of this territory, with contradictory requirements between security, tourism, traditional land use, and scientific research.

    We commend Koelsch and colleagues [14] for developing a broad and integrative explanation of the neurobiological foundations of emotions. We especially welcome this framework's emphasis on the interaction between language and emotion, and its focus on the characteristically human moral emotions. Emotions elicited by art and aesthetics also seem to be distinctively human, but comparatively little research has been devoted to understanding these. This is probably because they are usually viewed as atypical in several respects. William James [12], for instance, regarded emotional responses to artworks and aesthetic qualities as subtler emotions, because they lacked the strong bodily changes and adaptive value characteristic of coarser emotions, such as joy, anger, or fear. This view is still predominant today, and aesthetic emotions are often distinguished from everyday emotions [13]. However, the notion of a class of aesthetic emotions, separate from everyday emotions, rests on the questionable assumption that artistic and aesthetic experiences and activities are different in essence from everyday experiences and activities. The discontinuity between "aesthetic experience [and] normal processes of living" [9, p. 10], however, is the product of social and cultural developments in Europe during the 18th century [7,15,20]. Distinctions that oppose art to craft, or aesthetic to practical, in reference to objects, behaviors, experiences, and emotions, make little sense in a broader historic and geographic context [1,7,20], and hinder empirical research [7].

    The proposed quartet theory of human emotions by Koelsch and colleagues [1] identifies four different affect systems to be involved in the processing of particular types of emotions. Moreover, the theory integrates both basic emotions and more complex emotion concepts, which include also aesthetic emotions such as musical emotions. The authors identify a particular brain system for each kind of emotion type, also by contrasting them to brain structures that are generally involved in emotion processing irrespective of the type of emotion. A brain system that has been less regarded in emotion theories, but which represents one of the four systems of the quartet to induce attachment related emotions, is the hippocampus.

    Full Text Available Abstract Definition of the disease AL amyloidosis results from extra-cellular deposition of fibril-forming monoclonal immunoglobulin (Ig light chains (LC (most commonly of lambda isotype usually secreted by a small plasma cell clone. Most patients have evidence of isolated monoclonal gammopathy or smoldering myeloma, and the occurrence of AL amyloidosis in patients with symptomatic multiple myeloma or other B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders is unusual. The key event in the development of AL amyloidosis is the change in the secondary or tertiary structure of an abnormal monoclonal LC, which results in instable conformation. This conformational change is responsible for abnormal folding of the LC, rich in β leaves, which assemble into monomers that stack together to form amyloid fibrils. Epidemiology AL amyloidosis is the most common type of systemic amyloidois in developed countries with an estimated incidence of 9 cases/million inhabitant/year. The average age of diagnosed patients is 65 years and less than 10% of patients are under 50. Clinical description The clinical presentation is protean, because of the wide number of tissues or organs that may be affected. The most common presenting symptoms are asthenia and dyspnoea, which are poorly specific and may account for delayed diagnosis. Renal manifestations are the most frequent, affecting two thirds of patients at presentation. They are characterized by heavy proteinuria, with nephrotic syndrome and impaired renal function in half of the patients. Heart involvement, which is present at diagnosis in more than 50% of patients, leading to restrictive cardiopathy, is the most serious complication and engages prognosis. Diagnostic methods The diagnosis relies on pathological examination of an involved site showing Congo red-positive amyloid deposits, with typical apple-green birefringence under polarized light, that stain positive with an anti-LC antibody by immunohistochemistry and

Se hace muy necesario elevar el conocimiento y el nivel de desempeño respecto a este tipo de paciente, cuyo seguimiento es en extremo importante, ya que de él depende en muchos casos el pronóstico de vida. La aplicación consecuente de esta atención integral asegura la buena evolución del paciente. Se concluye en que el desnutrido, por sus características muy especiales, necesita una atención de emergencia de elevada calidad que consiga la disminución del riesgo de morbilidad y mortalidad.This paper described a sequential strategy of behaviours that should be followed in the case of an undernourished child that goes to the Emergency Service at the polyclinics or hospital. This strategy is based on the need of standardizing the care to a patient who has been referred by the family physician to the upper level of health care and initially received by a medical and paramedical staff in an emergency room. It is indispensable to raise the level of knowledge and performance in treating this kind of patient whose follow-up is extremely important, since most of the time life prognosis depends on it. The implementation of this comprehensive care assures the good course of recovery of the patient. It was concluded that the undernourished children, because of their very special characteristics, need a high quality care at the emergency service that leads to reduction in morbidity and mortality risks.

    PAH belong to the ubiquitary group of persistant organic pollutants (POP). Via atmospheric deposition, they may accumulate in soils and sediments over time. The contribution describes a sampling system for time-integrated measurement of atmospheric depositions over several months on the basis of continuous accumulation of pollutants in adsorber cartouches. This way, the total deposition of PAH is recorded independent of the type of deposition (i.e. wet or dry). [German] Polyzyklische aromatische Kohlenwasserstoffe (PAK) gehoeren zur Gruppe der persistenten organischen Schadstoffe (POP), die ubiquitaer auftreten. Ueber den atmosphaerischen Transport kommt es zur ubiquitaeren Verbreitung der Substanzen. Durch die atmosphaerische Deposition koennen persistente PAK vor allem in den Boeden und Sedimenten akkumulieren und sich dort im Laufe der Zeit anreichern. Zur Beurteilung der Anreicherung persistenter organischer Schadstoffe in den Boeden durch flaechenhafte, diffuse Eintraege spielt die quantitative Erfassung der atmosphaerischen Deposition eine entscheidende Rolle. Im folgenden wird ein Probenahmesystem beschrieben, welches als Passivsammler ueber einen Messzeitraum von mehreren Monaten durch kontinuierliche Anreicherung der Schadstoffe in Adsorberkartuschen die zeitlich integrierte Erfassung der Eintraege ermoeglicht. Dabei wird, unabhaengig von den verschiedenen Niederschlags- und Depositionsformen (trockene und feuchte Deposition), die Gesamtdeposition der PAK erfasst. (orig.)

En ese sentido, se consideró necesario desarrollar una metodología para profesionales de la salud, identificando sus necesidades de capacitación y sus condiciones de trabajo en lo relacionado a este tipo de atenciones. Es en ese contexto, que el año 2004, se delineó un estudio de línea de base en la Microrred de Salud Huaycán, al este de la ciudad de Lima; el cual comprendió diversas etapas con un enfoque multisectorial con el objetivo de identificar las necesidades de capacitación de los profesionales de salud, así como la evaluación del soporte logístico y administrativo para el desarrollo de actividades de capacitación a diversos niveles. En el presente artículo se expone, de modo sucinto, los procedimientos y principales resultados encontrados. Se evidenció que la población de Huaycán se encontraba afectada por las secuelas de la violencia política; no obstante, los servicios de salud tienen recursos limitados para realizar una adecuada atención de estas personas, emerge la necesidad de capacitación en varias esferas; existen condiciones administrativas y logísticas para efectuar estas actividades.

    A search for reliability improvement of Al film interconnections has led to the introduction of Al-Alloy films such as Al-Cu, Al-Cu-Si and so on. This report describes the results of an in-depth study of Al, Al-Cu (2 wt % Cu) and Al-Cu-Si (2 wt % Cu - 1% Si) film interconnections and Silicon/Al-Alloy film contacts as they impact reliability of integrated circuits. Resistivity, microstructure and composition of Al-Alloy films vacuum deposited from an induction heated source (IN-Source) and dc magnetron sputter deposition techniques have been investigated and it is concluded that IN-Source and dc magnetron sputter deposition techniques are equally capable of producing Al, Al-Cu (2 wt %) and Al-Cu-Si (2 wt % Cu - 1% Si) films of comparable compositions, resistivity and microstructure. Chemical analysis X-ray fluorescence electron microprobe, scanning and transmission electron microscopy and ion microprobe have been employed for Al-Alloy film characterization. Availability of automated dc magnetron sputter (M-S) deposition equipment was a primary factor in the selection of magnetron sputter deposited Al-Alloy films for electromigration testing.

    We report on the magneto-optical (MO) properties of heavily Tb(3+)-doped GeO2-B2O3-Al2O3-Ga2O3 glasses towards fiber-integrated paramagnetic MO devices. For a Tb(3+) ion concentration of up to 9.7 × 10(21) cm(-3), the reported glass exhibits an absolute negative Faraday rotation of ~120 rad/T/m at 632.8 nm. The optimum spectral ratio between Verdet constant and light transmittance over the spectral window of 400-1500 nm is found for a Tb(3+) concentration of ~6.5 × 10(21) cm(-3). For this glass, the crystallization stability, expressed as the difference between glass transition temperature and onset temperature of melt crystallization exceeds 100 K, which is a prerequisite for fiber drawing. In addition, a high activation energy of crystallization is achieved at this composition. Optical absorption occurs in the NUV and blue spectral region, accompanied by Tb(3+) photoluminescence. In the heavily doped materials, a UV/blue-to-green photo-conversion gain of ~43% is achieved. The lifetime of photoluminescence is ~2.2 ms at a stimulated emission cross-section σem of ~1.1 × 10(-21) cm(2) for ~ 5.0 × 10(21) cm(-3) Tb(3+). This results in an optical gain parameter σem*τ of ~2.5 × 10(-24) cm(2)s, what could be of interest for implementation of a Tb(3+) fiber laser.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: to undertake an integrative literature review on the issue of "Children as carers". This is an emerging topic in the provision of health care, but nevertheless has a low profile in the literature. METHODOLOGY: this study was based in a survey of nine databases of scientific articles, using as descriptor: child, young, caregivers, lay carer and nursing role, as well as the corresponding terms in Portuguese. 21 articles were analyzed. RESULTS: these were organized into six categories - factors which motivate the child to take on the role of caregiver; these children's characteristics; tasks performed; time spent in caring; consequences of providing care and the role of the nurse in partnership with these children and their families. CONCLUSION: the children as carers are a focus of attention relevant to nursing practice, this issue representing an opportunity for investigation in Portuguese-speaking countries, as no article was found on the subject in Portuguese. In addition, with this first study in Portuguese, a work of the creation of a bibliography is begun, allowing an awareness of the issue and the identification of ways to respond to the families involved, in line with their needs.OBJETIVO: realizar una revisión bibliográfica integrativa del tema "Niños como Cuidadores".

    Starting from the classical concepts introduced by Sherrington [1] and considerably elaborated by Bernstein [2], much has been learned about motor synergies in the last several years. The contributions of the group funded by the European project ;The Hand Embodied; are remarkable in the field of biological and robotic control of the hand based on synergies, and they are reflected in this enjoyable review [3]. There, Santello et al. adopt Bernstein's definition of motor synergies as multiple elements working together towards a common goal, with the result that multiple degrees of freedom are controlled within a lower-dimensional space than the available number of dimensions.

    Koelsch et al. [1] propose the following two emotion-relevant functions of language: "(a) With regard to subjective feelings, language is an important means to express as well as communicate emotions (and, therefore, also to elicit emotions in other individuals). (b) With regard to conscious appraisal, language is an important means to regulate emotions" - assuming that "activity of affect systems and effector systems is synthesized into an emotion percept (pre-verbal subjective feeling), which can be transformed (or reconfigured) into a symbolic code such as language".

    A new way for the modelling of the charge and discharge processes in electrochemical batteries based on the use of integral equations is presented. The proposed method models the charge curves by by the so called fractional or cumulative integrals of a certain objective function f(t) that must be sought. The charge figures can be easily fitted by breaking down this objective function as the addition of two different Lorentz-type functions: the first one is associated to the own charge process and the second one to the overcharge process. The method allows calculating the starting voltage for overcharge as the intersection between both functions. The curve fitting of this model to different experimental charge curves, by using the Marquardt algorithm, has shown very accurate results. In the case of discharge curves, two possible methods for modelling purposes are suggested, well by using the same kind of integral equations, well by the simple subtraction of an objective function f(t) from a constant value V{sub o}D. Many other aspects for the study and analysis of this method in order to improve its results in further developments are also discussed. (Author) 10 refs.

    As a part of the overall project Stuttgart city with energy efficiency - SEE an integrated bioenergy concept Wilhelma at the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Waste Management (ISWA) in cooperation with the Institute of Energy Economics and the Rational Use of Energy (IER) is created. The biomass potential analysis was recently completed; a differentiated analysis of energy demand is still pending. The Stuttgart Zoo Wilhelma has a significant biomass potential. With about 340 acres of gardens and parks which fall Wilhelma to care and the residue biomass of around 9000 zoo animals, offers the Stuttgart Zoo and Garden Wilhelma, together with the urban green space a high biomass potential, which is currently unused. For energy recovery through anaerobic digestion in a biogas plant are suitable 3900 t/a of biomass, which are 87% of the total exploitable biomass. For energy recovery by incineration are suitable 600 t/a of biomass, equivalent to the remaining 13% of recoverable biomass. This could be a total energy potential of about 6219 MWh/year are covered if the biomass is fully developed. Of these, 64% come from the fermentation and 36% from burning. About the determined biomass potential can be expected to be covered the electricity and heat demand of up to 16% (integrated bio-energy concept). To fully cover the energy requirements possibility of further use of renewable energy sources (e.g. solar panels on the roofs) must be examined and evaluated. (orig.)

A bibliometric analysis of the bibliographic references of the studies published in the journal Atención Primaria during 1991. A data base, managed by dBASE IV, was created. The Unit of Documental Analysis and Bibliometry of the Institute of Documental and Historical Studies in Science (University of Valencia-CSIC). 2,615 bibliographic references in 205 studies contained in volume 8 of Atención Primaria. References from journal articles (68%) and books (26%) predominated. There were a large number of references from Spanish publications (45%) as against Northamerican (27%) and British (15%). There were few references from other European countries or Latin America. Information was quickly out of date (4 year semiperiod; Price index 50%). High proportion of self-quotations from the journal. The major role of the journal Atención Primaria in communicating information in the primary care field was underlined. The small amount of information from Latin America and E.U. countries (except Great Britain) highlights the isolation of Spain from these countries, which can be explained by the limits of the primary care field itself. There was also little use of information to which access was more difficult for primary care doctors, such as doctoral theses, congress papers or reports. Moreover this is a field with a high percentage of recent literature and rapidly out-of-date information.

    Full Text Available La seguridad es uno de los aspectos principales a considerar cuando se evalúa la calidad de servicio provista por un camino. Por lo tanto, la determinación precisa de la fricción superficial del pavimento adquiere suma importancia como parte de un plan de gestión de redes viales. Actualmente se emplean diversos equipos y procedimientos para medir la resistencia al deslizamiento en superficies de pavimento, tales como el Péndulo Británico, GripTester y SCRIM, entre otros. Con estos equipos se recopila información en terreno que se compara posteriormente respecto a valores umbrales que se consideran aceptables. Con el fin de asegurar una confiabilidad y nivel de calidad aceptables para esos resultados, se debe realizar un monitoreo constante a los procedimientos de medición, así como revisiones y calibración de los instrumentos. Este artículo propone una metodología general para el control de calidad en instrumentos y mediciones de resistencia al deslizamiento. Tal metodología ha sido diseñada usando listas de verificación y aplicando conceptos estadísticos de repetibilidad y reproducibilidad. La metodología fue aplicada para evaluar el nivel de calidad alcanzado por instrumentos y procedimientos de medición de resistencia al deslizamiento empleados en Chile, con buenos resultados. La calidad de los procedimientos de evaluación incluidos en dicha metodología también fue verificada, usando las técnicas de análisis estadísticos Seis-Sigma, lo que contribuyó significativamente a mejorar el sistema de control de calidad propuesto.Safety is one of the main issues that must be considered when evaluating the quality of service provided by a road.

    Objective: To determine the genetic etiology in 2 consanguineous families who presented a novel phenotype of autosomal recessive juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis associated with generalized dystonia. Methods: A combination of homozygosity mapping and whole-exome sequencing in the first family and Sanger sequencing of candidate genes in the second family were used. Results: Both families were found to have homozygous loss-of-function mutations in the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 2 (juvenile) (ALS2) gene. Conclusions: We report generalized dystonia and cerebellar signs in association with ALS2-related disease. We suggest that the ALS2 gene should be screened for mutations in patients who present with a similar phenotype. PMID:24562058

    2015-06-01

    Koelsch and coworkers present a sophisticated neuroanatomical model of emotions comprising four affect-systems and four output-systems, each bound to a specific brain area [1]. Moreover, they suggest the emergence of distinct components of subjective feelings or "emotion percepts" due to integration of the activation across these subsystems. Incorporating numerous neurobiological, psychological and philosophical findings on human emotions, the model reflects an extensive interdisciplinary approach. Considering an evolutionary perspective, however, we would like to address some issues concerning emotions and their link to intentions, dispositions and behavior that are not fully covered by the Quartet Model. Charles Darwin pointed out that individuals that are better adapted to their environment have increased chances of survival and reproduction. Therefore, natural selection leads to a rising prevalence of properties offering a survival benefit across generations [2]. To better understand the biological functions of emotions we propose to ask the question: How do emotions provide a benefit for survival and reproduction?

    Integrated analysis of water management incorporates a great range of dimensions and aspects involved in the management of a water system. Lately, these kind of studies have become numerous because they allow getting a holistic knowledge and they also help managers with the decision making process. Nevertheless, there is not yet a general methodology for tackling this type of studies and there is a big opened field concerning the tools and techniques application. This paper establishes a methodology, which can be extrapolated to other case studies, and a practical procedure for the integrated analysis of groundwater management. This analysis starts with the identification and conceptualization of the hydric problematic. Then, a second phase is focused on the development of sectorial and detailed studies. The third phase is the building of the Decision Support System (DSS) based on the results from the sectorial studies. This research develops and proposes the application of a stochastic DSS based on Object-Oriented Bayesian Networks (OOBNs) that allows incorporating a huge range of aspects such as hydrogeological, socioeconomic and environmental, among others. The last phase of the procedure is the simulation of water management scenarios through the DSS. This allows comparing and quantifying the impacts generated by three water management interventions which have been proposed previously. The first scenario establishes the continuation of the current situation, the second scenario is made up of for several water management interventions which are the incoming of external water resources, the purchase of water rights and a reduction of the water demand; finally, the third scenario implies to reach the equilibrium in the aquifer water budgets.

    Least cost planning and demand side management concepts are currently discussed as one looks for ingenious solutions to the increase in electric power demands. The weak points of these concepts, i.e. rigorous governmental intervention in autonomous electric-utility management, and inefficiencies which result from governmental intervention, are done away with by applying an alternative market-oriented approach which makes the most of the electric utilities' management potential and which contributes to an effective energy policy. The approach consists of political and of economic elements. The political emphasis is on the reflection of the scarcity of supplies by tariffs and on a further increase in the electric utilities' economic efficiency by more competition. The solution's economic emphasis is on the application of a management concept which combines proven strategical-management and marketing approaches. The pure management approach is referred to as IRP for being related to the economic concept of integrated resource planning. (orig.)

    2015-06-01

    What is an Emotion? This question has fascinated scientific research since William James. Despite the fact that a consensus has been reached about the biological origin of emotions, uniquely human aspects of emotions are still poorly understood. One of these blind spots concerns the relationship between emotion and human language. Historically, many theories imply a duality between emotions on the one hand and cognitive functions such as language on the other hand. Especially for symbolic forms of written language and word processing, it has been assumed that semantic information would bear no relation to bodily, affective, or sensorimotor processing (for an overview see Ref. [1]). The Quartet Theory proposed by Koelsch and colleagues [2] could provide a solution to this problem. It offers a novel, integrative neurofunctional model of human emotions which considers language and emotion as closely related. Crucially, language - be it spoken or written - is assumed to "regulate, modulate, and partly initiate" activity in core affective brain systems in accord with physical needs and individual concerns [cf. page 34, line 995]. In this regard, the Quartet Theory combines assumptions from earlier bioinformational theories of emotions [3], contemporary theories of embodied cognition [4], and appraisal theories such as the Component Process Model [5] into one framework, thereby providing a holistic model for the neuroscientific investigation of human emotion processing at the interface of emotion and cognition, mind and body.

    The Vienna Integrated Model of Art Perception (VIMAP; [5]) is the most comprehensive model of the art experience today. The model incorporates bottom-up and top-down cognitive processes and accounts for different outcomes of the art experience, such as aesthetic evaluations, emotions, and physiological and neurological responses to art. In their presentation of the model, Pelowski et al. also present hypotheses that are amenable to empirical testing. These features make the VIMAP an ambitious model that attempts to explain how meaningful, complex, and profound aspects of the art experience come about, which is a significant extension of previous models of the art experience (e.g., [1-3,10]), and which gives the VIMAP good explanatory power.

  7. Learning in robotic manipulation: The role of dimensionality reduction in policy search methods. Comment on "Hand synergies: Integration of robotics and neuroscience for understanding the control of biological and artificial hands" by Marco Santello et al.

    A question that often arises, among researchers working on artificial hands and robotic manipulation, concerns the real meaning of synergies. Namely, are they a realistic representation of the central nervous system control of manipulation activities at different levels and of the sensory-motor manipulation apparatus of the human being, or do they constitute just a theoretical framework exploiting analytical methods to simplify the representation of grasping and manipulation activities? Apparently, this is not a simple question to answer and, in this regard, many minds from the field of neuroscience and robotics are addressing the issue [1]. The interest of robotics is definitely oriented towards the adoption of synergies to tackle the control problem of devices with high number of degrees of freedom (DoFs) which are required to achieve motor and learning skills comparable to those of humans. The synergy concept is useful for innovative underactuated design of anthropomorphic hands [2], while the resulting dimensionality reduction simplifies the control of biomedical devices such as myoelectric hand prostheses [3]. Synergies might also be useful in conjunction with the learning process [4]. This aspect is less explored since few works on synergy-based learning have been realized in robotics. In learning new tasks through trial-and-error, physical interaction is important. On the other hand, advanced mechanical designs such as tendon-driven actuation, underactuated compliant mechanisms and hyper-redundant/continuum robots might exhibit enhanced capabilities of adapting to changing environments and learning from exploration. In particular, high DoFs and compliance increase the complexity of modelling and control of these devices. An analytical approach to manipulation planning requires a precise model of the object, an accurate description of the task, and an evaluation of the object affordance, which all make the process rather time consuming.

Metodología: Estudio descriptivo de los datos recogidos en un cuestionario anónimo cumplimentado por los miembros del equipo PAIEM de los centros penitenciarios. Se obtuvieron distribuciones de frecuencia de todas las variables acerca de hechos, actitudes, opiniones, experiencias, situaciones y procesos del PAIEM. Resultados: Han respondido el 91,2% de los equipos del PAIEM. Psicólogos, educadores, médicos y trabajadores sociales son los profesionales que colaboran más activamente en el PAIEM (73%-84% y los que con más frecuencia ejercen como tutores. Los enfermos mentales se ubican habitualmente en módulos ordinarios (80%. Las actividades más utilizadas para su rehabilitación psicosocial son autocuidados (73% y educación para la salud, preparación para la vida diaria y habilidades sociales con más del 60%. Las intervenciones con las familias son básicamente por contacto telefónico (79%. En el análisis bivariante se demuestra que los PAIEM que mejor funcionan son los que tienen una buena coordinación con el resto de los equipos técnicos, los que preparan la derivación con más de seis meses previos a la libertad y en los que las ONG's tramitan las derivaciones. Más del 71% de los profesionales observan mejoras en carencias y discapacidades en más de la mitad de los enfermos y están mayoritariamente satisfechos (3,4/5 de su participación, aunque reconocen mayor carga de trabajo. Conclusiones: Las actividades del PAIEM son adecuadas, en especial en las fases de detección precoz, estabilización y rehabilitación y menos en la fase de reincorporación social que mejora cuando interviene el tercer sector en las derivaciones del enfermo a la red sociosanitaria extrapenitenciaria.

  11. Can modular psychological concepts like affect and emotion be assigned to a distinct subset of regional neural circuits?. Comment on "The quartet theory of human emotions: An integrative and neurofunctional model" by S. Koelsch et al.

    2015-06-01

    The proposed Quartet Theory of Human Emotions by Koelsch and co-workers [11] adumbrates evidence from various scientific sources to integrate and assign the psychological concepts of 'affect' and 'emotion' to four brain circuits or to four neuronal core systems for affect-processing in the brain. The authors differentiate between affect and emotion and assign several facultative, or to say modular, psychological domains and principles of information processing, such as learning and memory, antecedents of affective activity, emotion satiation, cognitive complexity, subjective quality feelings, degree of conscious appraisal, to different affect systems. Furthermore, they relate orbito-frontal brain structures to moral affects as uniquely human, and the hippocampus to attachment-related affects. An additional feature of the theory describes 'emotional effector-systems' for motor-related processes (e.g., emotion-related actions), physiological arousal, attention and memory that are assumed to be cross-linked with the four proposed affect systems. Thus, higher principles of emotional information processing, but also modular affect-related issues, such as moral and attachment related affects, are thought to be handled by these four different physiological sub-systems that are on the other side assumed to be highly interwoven at both physiological and functional levels. The authors also state that the proposed sub-systems have many features in common, such as the selection and modulation of biological processes related to behaviour, perception, attention and memory. The latter aspect challenges an ongoing discussion about the mind-body problem: To which degree do the proposed sub-systems 'sufficiently' cover the processing of complex modular or facultative emotional/affective and/or cognitive phenomena? There are current models and scientific positions that almost completely reject the idea that modular psychological phenomena are handled by a distinct selection of

    The change in the microstructural parameters and microhardness values in 6.5 MeV proton irradiated pure Al and Al5083 alloy samples have been evaluated using different model based techniques of X-ray diffraction Line Profile Analysis (XRD) and microindendation techniques. The detailed line profile analysis of the XRD data showed that the domain size increases and saturates with irradiation dose both in the case of Al and Al5083 alloy. The corresponding microstrain values did not show any change with irradiation dose in the case of the pure Al but showed an increase at higher irradiation doses in the case of Al5083 alloy. The microindendation results showed that unirradiated Al5083 alloy has higher hardness value compared to that of unirradiated pure Al. The hardness increased marginally with irradiation dose in the case of Al5083, whereas for pure Al, there was no significant change with dose.

    Full Text Available This article characterizes hypersensitivity reactions during anesthetic-surgical procedures. This integrative literature review was conducted in the LILACS, CINAHL, COCHRANE and MEDLINE databases including papers published from 1966 to September 2011. A total of 17 case reports, two prevalence studies and one cohort study were identified. Latex reactions were mainly type III and the primary source of intraoperative reaction was latex gloves. The average time for clinical manifestation was 59.8 minutes after anesthetic induction; 44.4% of patients reported a reaction to latex at the pre-anesthetic evaluation. It was determined that the history of allergic reactions to latex obtained in the pre-anesthetic evaluation does not ensure the safety of patients if the staff is inattentive to the severity of the issue. There is also a tendency to initially attribute the anaphylactic event to the anesthetic drugs.Este estudio tuvo como objetivo caracterizar las reacciones de hipersensibilidad al látex en la anestesia. Ha sido realizada una revisión integradora de la literatura en LILACS, CINAHL, COCHRANE y MEDLINE, con una selección de artículos publicados en periódicos indexados de 1966 hasta septiembre 2011. Fueron identificados 17 casos clínicos, 2 estudios de prevalencia y 1 de la cohorte. Las reacciones al látex fueron en su mayoría del tipo III y la principal fuente de reacción intra-operatoria fue el contacto con los guantes de látex. El tiempo medio hasta la aparición de respuesta fue de 59.8 minutos después de la inducción, 44,4% de los pacientes informaron una reacción al látex en el periodo pre-anestésico. La historia de reacciones alérgicas al látex en el periodo pre-anestésico no garantiza la seguridad de los pacientes si el profesional no está atento a la gravedad del problema.

Múltiples son las investigaciones realizadas acerca de las causas que lo producen y las consecuencias que provoca. Su importancia no solo radica en lo que significa en la morbilidad y la mortalidad infantil, sino que estos niños tienen habitualmente múltiples problemas posteriores. El Programa para la Reducción del BPN señala que los niños nacidos con un peso inferior a los 2 500 g presentan riesgo de mortalidad 14 veces mayor durante el primer año de vida, en comparación con los niños que nacen con un peso normal a término. Dentro de los factores de riesgo del BPN se han encontrado con mayor frecuencia en estudios realizados por diferentes autores, los siguientes: el embarazo en la adolescencia, la desnutrición en la madre, el hábito de fumar, la hipertensión arterial durante el embarazo, la sepsis cervicovaginal, la anemia y los embarazos gemelares, entre otros. Es innegable la influencia que el BPN tiene sobre las futuras generaciones, por lo que debe constituir la diana de los esfuerzos que el médico y la enfermera deben desarrollar en su prevención, sobre todo en la comunidadLow birth weight has been an enigma for Science through times. A lot of research works have been carried out about its causes and consequences. The importance of LBW not only lies in its meaning for infant mortality and morbidity but also in the many problems that low birth weight children regularly face in the future. The program for the reduction of LBW points out that newborns weighing under 2500g have during his/her first year of life a mortality risk 14 times higher than newborns with a normal weight at term. Among the low birth weight risk factors, a number of studies by various authors have frequently found the following; pregnancy at adolescence; undernourishment in mothers, smoking, blood hypertension during pregnancy, cervix-vaginal sepsis; anemia, twin

    Full Text Available ENGLISH: During the last decades, the topos religion transformed into a powerful category of difference, which is also relevant for educationsystems and settings. Religion as a tool to differentiate between subjects is linked with power and dominance and, thus,with ideas about the constructed identities of “the other”. With this respects, religion functions as a code to define in- andexclusions and mark “the other”, e.g. “the Muslim” in predominantly Christian societies in Europe. Critical theories on racismenable to recognize, describe and define these practices and their effects. They can provide a useful tool to question and challengeintercultural and interreligious educational approaches which potentially reproduce and, thus, strengthen cultural/religiousdifferentiations. DEUTSCH: Die Differenz- und Heterogenitätskategorie Religion hat sich in den letzten Jahren im europäischen und auch deutschsprachigenDiskursraum zu einer medial, wissenschaftlich und politisch wirkmächtigen Kategorie entwickelt. Dabei zeigt sich Religion sowohlals soziale Unterscheidungspraxis (auch in pädagogischen Arrangements, als auch als Mittel zur Identifikation und Charakterisierungbestimmter Gruppen und Individuen als religiöse Subjekte. Religion stellt in diesem Zusammenhang einen Zugehörigkeitscodedar, mit dem Personen als natio-ethno-kulturell Andere markiert werden, wie die Markierung von MuslimInnen durchAngehörige der mehrheitlich christlichen Dominanzgesellschaft zeigt. Rassismuskritische Ansätze ermöglichen es zumeist eherimplizit an Rassekonstruktionen anschließende Unterscheidungen zu erkennen und zu beschreiben, den Bedingungen ihres Wirksamwerdensnachzugehen sowie ihre Konsequenzen zu bestimmen. Eine rassismuskritische und migrationspädagogisch informierteReligionspädagogik ermöglicht AkteurInnen, weniger auf gewaltvolle Unterscheidungspraxen angewiesen zu sein undalternative Veränderungs- und Handlungsmöglichkeiten zu

  11. Systems integration and demonstration of advanced reusable structure for ALS

    Gibbins, Martin N.

    1991-06-01

    The objective was to investigate the potential of advanced material to achieve life cycle cost (LCC) benefits for reusable structure on the advanced launch system. Three structural elements were investigated - all components of an Advanced Launch System reusable propulsion/avionics module. Leading aeroshell configurations included sandwich structure using titanium, graphite/polyimide (Gr/PI), or high-temperature aluminum (HTA) face sheets. Thrust structure truss concepts used titanium, graphite/epoxy, or silicon carbide/aluminum struts. Leading aft bulkhead concepts employed graphite epoxy and aluminum. The technical effort focused on the aeroshell because the greatest benefits were expected there. Thermal analyses show the structural temperature profiles during operation. Finite element analyses show stresses during splash-down. Weight statements and manufacturing cost estimates were prepared for calculation of LCC for each design. The Gr/PI aeroshell showed the lowest potential LCC, but the HTA aeroshell was judged to be lower risk. A technology development plan was prepared to validate the applicable structural technology.

  17. Understanding AlN Obtaining Through Computational Thermodynamics Combined with Experimental Investigation

    2017-06-01

    Basic material concept, technology and some results of studies on aluminum matrix composite with dispersive aluminum nitride reinforcement was shown. Studied composites were manufactured by „in situ” technique. Aluminum nitride (AlN) has attracted large interest recently, because of its high thermal conductivity, good dielectric properties, high flexural strength, thermal expansion coefficient matches that of Si and its non-toxic nature, as a suitable material for hybrid integrated circuit substrates. AlMg alloys are the best matrix for AlN obtaining. Al2O3-AlMg, AlN-Al2O3, and AlN-AlMg binary diagrams were thermodynamically modelled. The obtained Gibbs free energies of components, solution parameters and stoichiometric phases were used to build a thermodynamic database of AlN- Al2O3-AlMg system. Obtaining of AlN with Liquid-phase of AlMg as matrix has been studied and compared with the thermodynamic results. The secondary phase microstructure has a significant effect on the final thermal conductivity of the obtained AlN. Thermodynamic modelling of AlN-Al2O3-AlMg system provided an important basis for understanding the obtaining behavior and interpreting the experimental results.

Se menciona el significado como lógica de la vida, junto a la necesidad de construcción de sentido que es lo que conforma la identidad, que aparece ligado a los problemas de organización individual y social. Las nociones de "sujeto" e "intermediación" completan el arsenal categorial, que se organiza en un doble eje: niveles y estado, donde se articula el proceso de constitución del sujeto y para lo cual se intenta responder a las preguntas ¿quién, cómo y para qué se organiza?

La tarea era desconsoladora; La atención médica había que prestarla al aire libre; iba con su esposa, como enfermera y amanuense, y no se encontraba ni un intérprete, ni un ayudante. Cuando le llegaron la medicina y el equipaje hubo que acomodarlos en un viejo gallinero abandonado; el calor era insoportable y le venían enfermos de varias millas a la redonda, a pie o en Canoas.

    Las enfermedades más difundidas eran Malaria, Disentería, estreptococias y la más mortífera, la Tripanosomiasis Gambiense, para la que empezaban a llegar medicinas nuevas eficaces y las medidas preventivas como el suministro de agua potable y enmallado de ventanas impedían muchas contaminaciones.

    Pero la que causaba mayores dificultades y trabajo era la Mycobacteriasis Anestesiante, incurable, de difícil diagnóstico, afectando a varios miembros de la misma familia, de aspecto horripilante, con complicaciones neuríticas muy dolorosas, frecuente ceguera, e invalideces y procesos erisepelatososacrotéricos, que exigían acompañante para el cambio y lavado de vendas y suministro de alimentos.

    INTRODUCTION: Despite many initiatives to improve coordination of patient pathways and intersectoral cooperation, Danish health care is still fragmented, lacking intra- and interorganisational integration. This study explores barriers to and facilitators of interorganisational integration...... at a university hospital in the Capital Region of Denmark. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Our results can be grouped into five influencing areas for interorganisational integration: communication/information transfer, committed leadership, patient engagement, the role and competencies of the general practitioner...... and organisational culture. Proposed solutions to barriers in each area hold the potential to improve care integration as experienced by individuals responsible for supporting and facilitating it. Barriers and facilitators to integrating care relate to clinical, professional, functional and normative integration...

    Two distinct but related approaches hold the solutions to many mathematical problems--the forms of expression known as differential and integral equations. The method employed by the integral equation approach specifically includes the boundary conditions, which confers a valuable advantage. In addition, the integral equation approach leads naturally to the solution of the problem--under suitable conditions--in the form of an infinite series.Geared toward upper-level undergraduate students, this text focuses chiefly upon linear integral equations.

    In der vorliegenden Arbeit stellen wir ein neues Modell zur Kopplung des Tumormasseeffektes an die, der Wachstumsmodellierung unterliegende, anisotrope Reaktionsdiffusionsgleichung vor. Die Gleichung wird auf einem hochaufgelösten Voxelgitter diskretisiert. Eine Modellierung der Anisotropie des Diffusionsprozesses ermöglicht die Integration von Diffusions-Tensor-Bildgebungsdaten. Die raumfordernde Wirkung des Tumors wird als parametrisches Bildregistrierproblem aufgefasst. Hierbei wird die resultierende Verteilung der Tumorzellkonzentration in die zu optimierende Zielfunktion integriert. Erste qualitative Ergebnisse zeigen, dass eine Minimierung der aufgestellten Zielfunktion zu einer plausiblen Modellierung des Masseeffektes führt.

    Full Text Available Islam, through the Quran, proclaims that its mission includes the teachings to the whole universe, Everything in the universe is maintained by Islam, and none of the symptoms are ignored. The revelations also include the traditions of the Prophet that are authentic (shahih and good (hasan in quality. Both the Quran and maqbulah hadiths are accepted by Muslims on the basis of faith. When some experts of UIN Walisongo from various disciplines try to understand the sacred words of these two resources, their understanding continues, reaching the paradigm of the unity of science which essentially unites the normative, social, and natural sciences. The effect of this paradigm has brought up an issue for the author. Is there any hadiths or Prophetic traditions that can be used as a grand theory in the management disciplines of Islamic education.To address this issue, the authors conducted a literature research with the title Development of Islamic Education Management Module. Sources of data were focused on nine books of Hadiths : Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, Sunan at-Turmudzi, Sunan an-Nasai, Sunan Ibn Majah, Sunan ad-Darimi, Muwatta Malik, and Musnad Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal in the form of digital data Lidwa Reader Software Book 9 Imam Hadith. The findings of the study stated that the meaning of the word Rabb includes: creating, nurturing, maintaining, teaching, educating, and organizing. Thus, in an academic term, the word Rabb implies a manager or leader. Meanwhile, in the concept of comprehensive manager it contains at least 14 nomenclature denotations: planning, responsibility, organization, coordination, system of employee payroll, learning, resources, humanity, principle of making it easier for the manager to the employee, motivated to achieve optimal performance, preventing unproductivity, education participation, institutional costs, monitoring, and evaluation system.

    Remote user authentication is desirable for a Telecare Medicine Information System (TMIS) for the safety, security and integrity of transmitted data over the public channel. In 2013, Tan presented a biometric based remote user authentication scheme and claimed that his scheme is secure. Recently, Yan et al. demonstrated some drawbacks in Tan's scheme and proposed an improved scheme to erase the drawbacks of Tan's scheme. We analyze Yan et al.'s scheme and identify that their scheme is vulnerable to off-line password guessing attack, and does not protect anonymity. Moreover, in their scheme, login and password change phases are inefficient to identify the correctness of input where inefficiency in password change phase can cause denial of service attack. Further, we design an improved scheme for TMIS with the aim to eliminate the drawbacks of Yan et al.'s scheme.

    Symplectic integrators are widely used for long-term integration of conservative astrophysical problems due to their ability to preserve the constants of motion; however, they cannot in general be applied in the presence of nonconservative interactions. In this Letter, we develop the “slimplectic” integrator, a new type of numerical integrator that shares many of the benefits of traditional symplectic integrators yet is applicable to general nonconservative systems. We utilize a fixed-time-step variational integrator formalism applied to the principle of stationary nonconservative action developed in Galley et al. As a result, the generalized momenta and energy (Noether current) evolutions are well-tracked. We discuss several example systems, including damped harmonic oscillators, Poynting–Robertson drag, and gravitational radiation reaction, by utilizing our new publicly available code to demonstrate the slimplectic integrator algorithm. Slimplectic integrators are well-suited for integrations of systems where nonconservative effects play an important role in the long-term dynamical evolution. As such they are particularly appropriate for cosmological or celestial N-body dynamics problems where nonconservative interactions, e.g., gas interactions or dissipative tides, can play an important role.

The implementation of these policies aim normalize the lives of people with disabilities through full integration in the society to which they belong. Removing discrimination and social barriers equates to a maturing of the society, maturing translated by accepting diversity that surrounds us. Each person must be appreciated at its true value regardless of its condition of normality or deviation from it. Valuing individuals can be achieved only through a full acceptance in society, by assigning statuses and fulfilling social roles. School integration of children with special educational needs in mainstream education is a challenge and involves many aspects to be successful. It is the premise of social integration, the basis for future socio-professional insertion. Integrated education is the first step towards a world of equal opportunities, a world without discrimination.

    This paper presents a finite element thermal model for similar and dissimilar alloy friction stir spot welding (FSSW). The model is calibrated and validated using instrumented lap joints in Al-Al and Al-Fe automotive sheet alloys. The model successfully predicts the thermal histories for a range of process conditions. The resulting temperature histories are used to predict the growth of intermetallic phases at the interface in Al-Fe welds. Temperature predictions were used to study the evolution of hardness of a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy during post-weld aging after FSSW.

    The γ -ray emission associated with the radioactive decay of 26Al is one of the key pieces of observational evidence indicating stellar nucleosynthesis is an ongoing process in our Galaxy, and it was the first such radioactivity to be detected. Despite numerous efforts in stellar modeling, observation, nuclear theory, and nuclear experiment over the past four decades, the precise sites and origin of Galactic ^{26} Al remain elusive. We explore the present experimental knowledge concerning the destruction of ^{26} Al in massive stars. The precise stellar rates of neutron-induced reactions on ^{26} Al, such as (n,p) and (n, α , have among the largest impacts on the total ^{26} Al yield. Meanwhile, reactions involving the short-lived isomeric state of ^{26} Al such as radiative proton capture are highly-uncertain at present. Although we presented on-going experimental work from n_TOF at CERN with an ^{26} Al target, the present proceeding focuses only on the ^{26} Al isomeric radioactive beam production aspect and the first experimental results at CRIB.

    The Integrating Nephelometer (Figure 1) is an instrument that measures aerosol light scattering. It measures aerosol optical scattering properties by detecting (with a wide angular integration – from 7 to 170°) the light scattered by the aerosol and subtracting the light scattered by the carrier gas, the instrument walls and the background noise in the detector (zeroing). Zeroing is typically performed for 5 minutes every day at midnight UTC. The scattered light is split into red (700 nm), green (550 nm), and blue (450 nm) wavelengths and captured by three photomultiplier tubes. The instrument can measure total scatter as well as backscatter only (from 90 to 170°) (Heintzenberg and Charlson 1996; Anderson et al. 1996; Anderson and Ogren 1998; TSI 3563 2015) At ARM (Atmospheric Radiation Measurement), two identical Nephelometers are usually run in series with a sample relative humidity (RH) conditioner between them. This is possible because Nephelometer sampling is non-destructive and the sample can be passed on to another instrument. The sample RH conditioner scans through multiple RH values in cycles, treating the sample. This kind of setup allows to study how aerosol particles’ light scattering properties are affected by humidification (Anderson et al. 1996). For historical reasons, the two Nephelometers in this setup are labeled “wet” and “dry”, with the “dry” Nephelometer usually being the one before the conditioner and sampling ambient air (the names are switched for the MAOS measurement site due to the high RH of the ambient air).

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2016-11-10

    The objective of this project is to investigate the role of different types of layer interfaces on the formation of high density stacking fault (SF) in Al in Al/fcc multilayers, and understand the corresponding deformation mechanisms of the films. Stacking faults or twins can be intentionally introduced (via growth) into certain fcc metals with low stacking fault energy (such as Cu, Ag and 330 stainless steels) to achieve high strength, high ductility, superior thermal stability and good electrical conductivity. However it is still a major challenge to synthesize these types of defects into metals with high stacking fault energy, such as Al. Although deformation twins have been observed in some nanocrystalline Al powders by low temperature, high strain rate cryomilling or in Al at the edge of crack tip or indentation (with the assistance of high stress intensity factor), these deformation techniques typically introduce twins sporadically and the control of deformation twin density in Al is still not feasible. This project is designed to test the following hypotheses: (1) Certain type of layer interfaces may assist the formation of SF in Al, (2) Al with high density SF may have deformation mechanisms drastically different from those of coarse-grained Al and nanotwinned Cu. To test these hypotheses, we have performed the following tasks: (i) Investigate the influence of layer interfaces, stresses and deposition parameters on the formation and density of SF in Al. (ii) Understand the role of SF on the deformation behavior of Al. In situ nanoindentation experiments will be performed to probe deformation mechanisms in Al. The major findings related to the formation mechanism of twins and mechanical behavior of nanotwinned metals include the followings: 1) Our studies show that nanotwins can be introduced into metals with high stacking fault energy, in drastic contrast to the general anticipation. 2) We show two strategies that can effectively introduce growth twins in

En la anestesiología hay mayor riesgo de dependencia a opioides e hipnóticos que en otras especialidades y puede llegar a afectar al 1% de los médicos anestesiólogos.La fisiopatología del trastorno por uso de sustancias tiene hechos comunes para diferentes drogas. Interactúan la vulnerabilidad genética y factores psicosociales como predisponentes y los efectos psicobiológicos de la sustancia como factor gatillante. En el caso de los anestesiólogos, la sustancia se encuentra en el lugar de trabajo y por lo tanto, el individuo está constantemente expuesto.Una disfunción previa del sistema de recompensa en el circuito mesocorticolímbico o causada por la exposición a la sustancia adictiva es la piedra central de la neurobiología de las adicciones. Los opioides, anfetaminas, canabinoides, alcohol y nicotina, son algunas de las sustancias exógenas que activan el circuito y causan inicialmente un efecto hedónico que reforzará la conducta por repetir la experiencia. Con el tiempo la interacción con la droga será para evitar los síntomas de abstinencia.Dada la exposición laboral de los anestesiólogos, es necesario prevenir, detectar y tratar precozmente a quienes están abusando de sustancias durante su ejercicio profesional.Por las características de estos fármacos, aspectos psicológicos especiales de los médicos y el contexto laboral se hace necesario un tratamiento especializado y en anestesiólogos la reinserción laboral debe ser un proceso controlado, gradual y con un seguimiento prolongado.

This is because business logistics and logistics engineering developed separately, each with their own following, resulting in the two so-called different -disciplines ignoring each other.

    By analysing the definition of integrated logistic support, it is possible to identify the necessary conditions for an integrated logistics model. From these necessary conditions, a model of the management functions and technical activities is constructed to suggest the purpose and place of all logistics functions to work in an integrated way towards the goal of the organisation. The model suggests that logistics engineering and business logistics are both required in the organisation and that it is of vital importance that these functions are executed in unison . This model is different to previous models in that it approaches logistics from the organisations viewpoint rather than from a logistics viewpoint.

    Apical dendrites of Betz cells are important sites for the integration of cortical input, however their health has not been fully assessed in ALS patients. We investigated the primary motor cortices isolated from post-mortem normal control subjects, patients with familial ALS (fALS), sporadic ALS (sALS), ALS with frontotemporal dementia (FTD-ALS), and Alzheimer's disease (AD), and found profound apical dendrite degeneration of Betz cells in both fALS and sALS, as well as FTD-ALS patients. In contrast, Betz cells of AD patients and normal controls retain cellular integrity in the motor cortex, and CA1 pyramidal neurons show abnormalities predominantly within their soma, rather than the apical dendrite. In line with extensive vacuolation and cytoarchitectural disintegration, the numbers of synapses were also significantly reduced only in ALS patients. Our findings indicate apical dendrite degeneration as a novel cellular pathology that distinguishes ALS and further support the importance of cortical dysfunction for disease pathology.

    Full Text Available In some cases learning Nahwu was only stopped at the level of theory, yet its practice is still neglected. So many of the students mastered many nahwu theories but did not balance with the competence in listening, speaking, reading and writing in Arabic. It is true that learning Arabic is encouraged by nahwu, but the extent to which the model of Nahwu supports the language acquisition is questionable. Descriptive qualitative method was applied to deal with this research. The result showed that to master Arabic language through learning Nahwu, teachers should use al-Nahwu al-Wazhifi. Beside, they also can use this type of al-Nahwu al-'Ilmiy, giving examples of applicative and functional to complement existing examples in the book of al-Nahwu al-'Ilmi. In addition, because the books “al-Nahwu al-'Ilmy” had not been evaluated, teachers should develop aspects of evaluation by extending the exercise to hear, speak, read and write Arabic.

Human health improvement in Sub-Saharan Africa through integrated management of arthropod transmitted diseases and natural resources Mejoramiento de la salud humana en África al sur del Sahara mediante el manejo integrado de enfermedades transmitidas por artrópodos y el manejo de recursos naturales

    Full Text Available A concept of an ecosystem approach to human health improvement in Sub-Saharan Africa is presented here. Three factors mainly affect the physical condition of the human body: the abiotic environment, vector-transmitted diseases, and natural resources. Our concept relies on ecological principles embedded in a social context and identifies three sets of subsystems for study and management: human disease subsystems, natural resource subsystems, and decision-support subsystems. To control human diseases and to secure food from resource subsystems including livestock or crops, integrated preventive approaches are preferred over exclusively curative and sectorial approaches. Environmental sustainability - the basis for managing matter and water flows - contributes to a healthy human environment and constitutes the basis for social sustainability. For planning and implementation of the human health improvement scheme, participatory decision-support subsystems adapted to the local conditions need to be designed through institutional arrangements. The applicability of this scheme is demonstrated in urban and rural Ethiopia.Se presenta un concepto, basado en el ecosistema, para el mejoramiento de la salud humana en la región del África al sur del Sahara.

    2009-01-01

    Hazard analysis addresses hazards that arise in the design, development, manufacturing, construction, facilities, transportation, operations and disposal activities associated with hardware, software, maintenance, operations and environments. An integrated hazard is an event or condition that is caused by or controlled by multiple systems, elements, or subsystems. Integrated hazard analysis (IHA) is especially daunting and ambitious for large, complex systems such as NASA s Constellation program which incorporates program, systems and element components that impact others (International Space Station, public, International Partners, etc.). An appropriate IHA should identify all hazards, causes, controls and verifications used to mitigate the risk of catastrophic loss of crew, vehicle and/or mission. Unfortunately, in the current age of increased technology dependence, there is the tendency to sometimes overlook the necessary and sufficient qualifications of the integrator, that is, the person/team that identifies the parts, analyzes the architectural structure, aligns the analysis with the program plan and then communicates/coordinates with large and small components, each contributing necessary hardware, software and/or information to prevent catastrophic loss. As viewed from both Challenger and Columbia accidents, lack of appropriate communication, management errors and lack of resources dedicated to safety were cited as major contributors to these fatalities. From the accident reports, it would appear that the organizational impact of managers, integrators and safety personnel contributes more significantly to mission success and mission failure than purely technological components. If this is so, then organizations who sincerely desire mission success must put as much effort in selecting managers and integrators as they do when designing the hardware, writing the software code and analyzing competitive proposals. This paper will discuss the necessary and

    Full Text Available The discourse of integration of religion and science could enrich research of al-Qur’an study. As a principal source of Islam, al-Qur’an also becomes object research of the philosophy of science study, especially related to the development of science-based on religion. Within the framework of the philosophy of science, this article presents a study on the possibility to develop science-based on alQur’an, which is called “theistic science”. Although the efforts to find root of science on al-Qur’an develop so far, or to interpret al-Qur’an by utilizing the result of science research, in the framework of the philosophy of science, but it is not surely called a “science theistic”, even so perhaps it is not science, but it may be merely indeed not scientific. There is a pattern of development of science which is based on religion, but it is really scientific, which consists of three layers of philosophical basis, they are theoretical framework, scientific paradigm, and theological basis. By following this pattern carefully, the development of science not only can avoid the pattern of pseudoscience, but it will create science with high scientific value, but it is still within the framework of al-Qur’an. It is organized based on the embryonal concept from al-Qur’an. However, this pattern is a collective project, systemic, and cultural in the form of a grand project.

    Crespo, Antonio; Karim, Mohammad A.

    1998-11-01

    AlGaN has been in the spotlight lately for its use in blue to UV lasers and LEDs, tolerances to high temperature/harsh environment, high power applications, etc. Little has been examined in the area of electro-optic (EO) modulation and waveguiding. This paper compiles the optical and EO properties of AlGaN. It also models the behavior of AlGaN integrated optic waveguides and switches based on the zero- gap EO directional coupler. Among the advantages of AlGaN integrated optic waveguides and switches is the potential to work at wavelengths for IR to the blue region. Additionally, GaN has a close refractive index match, to glass and polymer optical fibers and waveguides. Preliminary findings suggest that the size of AlGaN EO directional couplers, based on measured nonlinear properties of the material and, assuming a viable PIN structure, could be in the range of approximately 7000 micrometers , operating at TTL voltages, with potentially high modulation switching speeds.

  6. Integrated nanocatalysts.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2013-02-19

    Despite significant advancements in catalysis research, the prevailing catalyst technology remains largely an art rather than a science. Rapid development in the fields of nanotechnology and materials chemistry in the past few decades, however, provides us with a new capacity to re-examine existing catalyst design and processing methods. In recent years, "nanocatalysts" has become a term often used by the materials chemistry and catalysis community. It refers to heterogeneous catalysts at nanoscale dimensions. Similar to homogeneous catalysts, freestanding (unsupported) nanocatalysts are difficult to separate after use. Because of their small sizes, they are also likely to be cytotoxic and pose a threat to the environment and therefore may not be practical for industrial use. On the other hand, if they are supported on ordinary catalyst carriers, the nanocatalysts would then revert to act as conventional heterogeneous catalysts, since chemists have known active metal clusters or oxide particles in the nanoscale regime long before the nanotechnology era. To resolve this problem, we need new research directions and synthetic strategies. Important advancements in catalysis research now allow chemists to prepare catalytic materials with greater precision. By controlling particle composition, structure, shape, and dimension, researchers can move into the next phase of catalyst development if they can bridge these old and new technologies. In this regard, one way seems to be to integrate active nanostructured catalysts with boundary-defined catalyst supports that are "not-so-nano" in dimension. However, these supports still have available hierarchical pores and cavity spaces. In principle, these devices keep the essence of traditional "catalyst-plus-support" type systems. They also have the advantages of nanoscale engineering, which involves both high level design and integration processes in their fabrication. Besides this, the active components in these devices are

    2017-08-01

    In this paper we prove that the trapezoidal H4 and the H6 families of quad-equations are Darboux integrable by constructing their first integrals. This result explains why the rate of growth of the degrees of the iterates of these equations is linear (Gubbiotti et al 2016 J. Nonlinear Math. Phys. 23 507-43), which according to the algebraic entropy conjecture implies linearizability. We conclude by showing how first integrals can be used to obtain general solutions.

  11. From Kitāb al-ḥadā’iq to Kitāb al-dawā’ir: Reconsidering Ibn al-Sīd al-Batalyawsī’s Philosophical Treatise

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eliyahu, Ayala

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The philosophical treatise known as Kitāb al-ḥadā’iq is generally ascribed to the 12th century Andalusian author Ibn al-Sīd al-Batalyawsī, although this attribution is sometimes contested. This paper offers a new interpretation of the title, textual history, authorship, sources, and literary genre of this treatise, on the basis of new textual evidence, a reexamination of known evidence, and a comparison between the treatise and Batalyawsī’s works. The conclusions of this study are first, that Kitāb al-ḥadā’iq was not the treatise’s original title, and therefore it should be renamed Kitāb al-dawā’ir; second, that Kitāb al-dawā’ir was originally part of (one of the versions of Batalyawsī’s Kitāb al-masā’il; and third, that the textual and stylistic similarities between this treatise and Batalyawsī’s other works prove the authenticity of the treatise’s attribution to Batalyawsī. In addition, new findings regarding Batalyawsī’s use of formulas from the Rasā’il Ikhwān al-Safā, in Kitāb al-dawā’ir and Kitāb al-masā’il provide further evidence for the deep impact of the Ikhwān on Batalyawsī’s thought, as well as for the close connection between Kitāb al-dawā’ir and Kitāb al-masā’il. This connection is further highlighted according to the attribution of both treatises to the genre of questions and answers in Arabic literature. The evidence gathered in this paper supports the claim that Batalyawsī’s Kitāb al-dawā’ir should be seen as an integral part of his literary oeuvre, as well as of Andalusian philosophical literature in general.Generalmente el tratado filosófico conocido como Kitāb al-ḥadā’iq se asocia al autor andalusí del siglo XII Ibn al-Sid al-Batalyawsī, aunque esta atribución ha sido discutida en ocasiones.

  13. Probing the Dielectric Properties of Ultrathin Al/Al2O3/Al Trilayers Fabricated Using in Situ Sputtering and Atomic Layer Deposition.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Acharya, Jagaran; Wilt, Jamie; Liu, Bo; Wu, Judy

    2018-01-12

    Dielectric properties of ultrathin Al2O3 (1.1-4.4 nm) in metal-insulator-metal (M-I-M) Al/Al2O3/Al trilayers fabricated in situ using an integrated sputtering and atomic layer deposition (ALD) system were investigated. An M-I interfacial layer (IL) formed during the pre-ALD sample transfer even under high vacuum has a profound effect on the dielectric properties of the Al2O3 with a significantly reduced dielectric constant (εr) of 0.5-3.3 as compared to the bulk εr ∼ 9.2. Moreover, the observed soft-type electric breakdown suggests defects in both the M-I interface and the Al2O3 film. By controlling the pre-ALD exposure to reduce the IL to a negligible level, a high εr up to 8.9 was obtained on the ALD Al2O3 films with thicknesses from 3.3 to 4.4 nm, corresponding to an effective oxide thickness (EOT) of ∼1.4-1.9 nm, respectively, which are comparable to the EOTs found in high-K dielectrics like HfO2 at 3-4 nm in thickness and further suggest that the ultrathin ALD Al2O3 produced in optimal conditions may provide a low-cost alternative gate dielectric for CMOS. While εr decreases at a smaller Al2O3 thickness, the hard-type dielectric breakdown at 32 MV/cm and in situ scanning tunneling spectroscopy revealed band gap ∼2.63 eV comparable to that of an epitaxial Al2O3 film. This suggests that the IL is unlikely a dominant reason for the reduced εr at the Al2O3 thickness of 1.1-2.2 nm but rather a consequence of the electron tunneling as confirmed in the transport measurement. This result demonstrates the critical importance in controlling the IL to achieving high-performance ultrathin dielectric in MIM structures.

    Because flake-like TiAl{sub 3} particles in Al-Ti-C master alloys prepared in a melt reaction method dissolve slowly when they are added into Al melt at 720 deg. C, Ti atoms cannot be released rapidly to play the assistant role of grain refinement, leading to a poor refinement efficiency of Al-Ti-C master alloys. A united refinement technology by Al-10Ti and Al-Ti-C master alloys was put forward in this paper. The rational combination of fine blocky TiAl{sub 3} particles in Al-10Ti and TiC particles in Al-Ti-C can improve the nucleation rate of {alpha}-Al.

    2015-01-01

    The combination of nonlinear and integrated photonics has recently seen a surge with Kerr frequency comb generation in micro-resonators as the most significant achievement. Efficient nonlinear photonic chips have myriad applications including high speed optical signal processing, on-chip multi-wavelength lasers, metrology, molecular spectroscopy, and quantum information science. Aluminium gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) exhibits very high material nonlinearity and low nonlinear loss when operated below half its bandgap energy. However, difficulties in device processing and low device effective nonlinearity made Kerr frequency comb generation elusive. Here, we demonstrate AlGaAs-on-insulator as a nonlinear platform at telecom wavelengths. Using newly developed fabrication processes, we show high-quality-factor (Q>100,000) micro-resonators with integrated bus waveguides in a planar circuit where optical parametric oscillation is achieved with a record low threshold power of 3 mW and a frequency comb spanning 350 nm i...

  1. Aluminum alloy metallization for integrated circuits

    Aluminum metallization is most widely used for contacts and interconnections in both bipolar and MOS integrated circuits. Aluminum alloy films, such as Al-Si and Al-Cu films, were introduced to minimize the erosion of silicon from contact windows and to improve the electromigration resistance of interconnections. Recently, magnetron sputter-deposited aluminum, Al-2wt.%Cu and Al-2wt.%Cu-1wt.%Si films were employed to study the stability and contact resistance of Si-(Al alloy film) contacts on devices with shallow junction depths of the order of 0.35 ..mu..m. Test structures were used to determine the leakage currents of 100n/sup +//p/sup +/ diodes as a function of the storage time (up to 1000 h) at 150 C, and the physical nature of the Si-(Al alloy) contacts was examined using scanning electron microscopy. The compatibility of the Al-Cu-Si metallization with the very large scale integrated requirements of interconnection and Si-metal contacts for shallow junction devices is discussed.

  4. Integrated Photopolarimeters

    1988-06-01

    Measurement of the state of polarization of light, emitted from different sources or scattered by various objects, is significant to astronomers, atmospheric scientists, biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers, and has a wide range of important applications. Conventional optical polarimetry is based on discrete polarizing optical elements (POE), such as crystal polarizers and wave retarders. Integrated polarimeters (IPs) depart from this established practice in that they rely on photodectors only, and require no POE. An IP integrates the polarization analysis and photodetection functions in the detectors. Three IPs are discussed: (1) the rotating-detector ellipsometer (RODE), (2) the two-detector ellipsometer (TDE), and (3) the four-detector photopolarimeter (FDP), in ascending order of apparent complexity. RODE can measure the state of polarization of totally polarized light, except for handedness; TDE provides a fast measurement of the degree of linear polarization of light and can also be operated as a handedness-blind ellipsometer; and FDP measures all the four Stokes parameters of light which is generally partially elliptically polarized. The FDP has several important advantages: (1) It has no moving parts or modulators; (2) it has a rugged design of four solid-state detectors; (3) it uses efficiently all of the input light flux for polarization determination; and (4) it is readily interfaceable with an on-line microcomputer. Further extension of these concepts include the in-line light-saving IP, and IPs that use anisotropic photodetectors.

This book has been commented by al-Shawkânî in a book called Nayl al-Awţâr where he employs the following methods. First, elaborating and commenting not of all hadiths but some them in each chapter of the book. Second, describing the narrators of the hadîths, their quality and personality. Third, providing the literal meaning of the hadîths he commented. Fourth, explaining the grammatical position of the vocabularies of the hadîth. Fifth, highlighting the use and benefit of the hadîth. Sixth, explaining the views of various ulama on a hadith. Seventh, extrapolating the legal rules of the hadîth using the dictums of the uşûl al-fiqh. This paper is designed to discuss this. It holds that in providing the commentary of the hadith, al-Shawkânî begins with the issue of how it was narrated (takhrîj, and ends up with extrapolating rules that may be learnt from it. The paper also believes that al-Shawkânî is an objective scholar, who worked in the elaboration and commentary of the hadîths just for the sake of knowledge. The fact that he often offers a commentary against the legal position of his own school of thought indicates that al-Shawkânî a person of academic integrity. The methods that he employs and the spirit behind his determination to provide commentary, all point to one thing of particular importance, that al-Shawkânî is immune of fanaticism and imitation.

  4. Ultrasonic friction power during Al wire wedge-wedge bonding

    Al wire bonding, also called ultrasonic wedge-wedge bonding, is a microwelding process used extensively in the microelectronics industry for interconnections to integrated circuits. The bonding wire used is a 25μm diameter AlSi1 wire. A friction power model is used to derive the ultrasonic friction power during Al wire bonding. Auxiliary measurements include the current delivered to the ultrasonic transducer, the vibration amplitude of the bonding tool tip in free air, and the ultrasonic force acting on the bonding pad during the bond process. The ultrasonic force measurement is like a signature of the bond as it allows for a detailed insight into mechanisms during various phases of the process. It is measured using piezoresistive force microsensors integrated close to the Al bonding pad (Al-Al process) on a custom made test chip. A clear break-off in the force signal is observed, which is followed by a relatively constant force for a short duration. A large second harmonic content is observed, describing a nonsymmetric deviation of the signal wave form from the sinusoidal shape. This deviation might be due to the reduced geometrical symmetry of the wedge tool. For bonds made with typical process parameters, several characteristic values used in the friction power model are determined. The ultrasonic compliance of the bonding system is 2.66μm/N. A typical maximum value of the relative interfacial amplitude of ultrasonic friction is at least 222nm. The maximum interfacial friction power is at least 11.5mW, which is only about 4.8% of the total electrical power delivered to the ultrasonic generator.

His patterns of communication and psychological changes are examined in terms of identity construction and transformation. His insider position as a Chinese native and academic returnee enables him to see the realities of practice in average Chinese universities at close range, yet with the altered vision gained from his overseas experience. This study highlights the challenges for academic returnees in Chinese higher education institutions and may also have resonances for academic returnees in other countries. Wider questions about the assessment of English research writing and the attitudes to academic returnees in Chinese universities are raised, contributing to debate over the future development of Chinese higher education institutions in a globalizing world.

    Regions with reduced energy gap induced by the proximity effect give rise to quasi-particle loss in Josephson-junction X-ray detectors, but may also be used advantageously for quasi-particle collection. The influence of the thickness of the Al proximity layers in Nb/Al1,AlO(x),Al2/Nb Josephson tunnel junctions on the electrical characteristics has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. Theoretically it is found that the strength of the proximity effect is mainly determined by the proximity parameters gammaM1 (gammaM2) of the electrodes. Good fits of the measured I-V curves with theory were obtained for junctions with thicknesses dA11 ranging from 4 to 25 nm and dA12 = 3 nm, with gammaM2 about 0.12 and gammaM1/gammaM2 = dA11/dA12. For all junctions the proximity knee remains more pronounced than predicted.

Usul al fiqh is considered as the source of value and change, and has played a significant role to start reforms in legal and social institutions because of the pressures of context and religious integrity. The values ​​contained in the sources of Islamic law, such as al Quran, Sunnah, ijma', qiyas, istislah, istihsan, sadd al dhara'i, and also maqasid al shari'ah, are translated into the community and are wholly implemented in the educational institutions. These values ​​are transmitted to the learners through methods such as dialogue, cooperation, problem solving and the democratic limit creation. In transferring knowledge and values​​, an educator must be grounded on two important approaches: first, encouraging respect to the diversity based on the concept that education as a mirror, window, and conversation; second, doing class activity which is more cooperative based on the principle of justice and equality.

  13. Low-temperature pyrolysis of oily sludge: roles of Fe/Al-pillared bentonites

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jia Hanzhong

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available Pyrolysis is potentially an effective treatment of oily sludge for oil recovery, and the addition of a catalyst is expected to affect its pyrolysis behavior. In the present study, Fe/Al-pillared bentonite with various Fe/Al ratios as pyrolysis catalyst is prepared and characterized by XRD, N2 adsorption, and NH3-TPD. The integration of Al and Fe in the bentonite interlayers to form pillared clay is evidenced by increase in the basal spacing. As a result, a critical ratio of Fe/Al exists in the Fe/Al-pillared bentonite catalytic pyrolysis for oil recovery from the sludge. The oil yield increases with respect to increase in Fe/Al ratio of catalysts, then decreases with further increasing of Fe/Al ratio. The optimum oil yield using 2.0 wt% of Fe/Al 0.5-pillared bentonite as catalyst attains to 52.46% compared to 29.23% without catalyst addition in the present study. In addition, the addition of Fe/Al-pillared bentonite catalyst also improves the quality of pyrolysis-produced oil and promotes the formation of CH4. Fe/Al-pillared bentonite provides acid center in the inner surface, which is beneficial to the cracking reaction of oil molecules in pyrolysis process. The present work implies that Fe/Al-pillared bentonite as addictive holds great potential in industrial pyrolysis of oily sludge.

    Full Text Available In ihrer beachtlichen und sehr gewissenhaft dokumentierten Arbeit über vormundschaftliche Regentschaften im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert beschreibt Pauline Puppel unter ausführlichem Bezug auf zeitgenössische Literatur und Archivalien sowohl die allgemeine Rechtslage im damaligen Reich als auch die Anwendungsfälle in Hessen, wo zwischen 1500 und 1700 insgesamt viermal eine Landgräfin als Vormünderin des Fürsten zur Regentin ihres Landes wurde. Dies steht exemplarisch für eine bereits in der Frühen Neuzeit mögliche und nicht einmal ganz seltene Form politischer Frauenherrschaft, die bisher oft nicht hinreichend gewürdigt wurde. Puppels Untersuchung ist in zwei Hauptteile gegliedert. Der erste Teil (Das juristische Regelwerk“, S. 34-143 behandelt die zeitgenössischen Rahmenbedingungen der durch Frauen ausgeübten Vormundschaft und Regentschaft. Der zweite Abschnitt („Die Landgräfinnen von Hessen als Regentinnen“, S. 144-307 befasst sich mit der Ausfüllung dieser Regeln durch konkrete Fallbeispiele in Gestalt von Leben und Regentschaft der regierenden Landgräfinnen von Hessen.

    Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements, and electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) have been performed on two meteorites named Al-Dalang and Al-Hawashat after identifying their falling sites in the Western region of Sudan. These two meteorites are ordinary chondrites with similar mineralogy. XRD and EMPA show that the two specimens consist of primary olivine, ortho-pyroxene and later crystallising clino-pyroxene as reaction rims against plagioclase. Fe-metal phases are dominated by kamacite (≈6 wt.% Ni) and minor amounts of tetrataenite (≈52 wt.% Ni). Troilite (FeS) and alabandite (MnS) are optically observed as sulphide phases. The Mössbauer measurements at 295 and 78 K are in agreement with the above characterizations, showing at least two paramagnetic doublets which are assigned to olivine and pyroxene and magnetic sextets assigned to kamacite (hyperfine field ≈33.5 T) and troilite FeS (hyperfine field ≈31 T).

These variations lead to integrals which are much more powerful than the Riemann integral. The Henstock/Kurzweil integral is an unconditional integral for which the fundamental theorem of calculus holds in full generality, while the McShane integral is equivalent to the Lebesgue integral in Euclidean spaces. A basic knowledge of introductory real analysis is required of the reader, who should be familiar with the fundamental p

    Computation of elliptic integrals, whether numerical or symbolic, has been aided by the contributions of Italian mathematicians. Tricomi had a strong interest in iterative algorithms for computing elliptic integrals and other special functions, and his writings on elliptic functions and elliptic integrals have taught these subjects to many modern readers (including the author). The theory of elliptic integrals began with Fagnano`s duplication theorem, a generalization of which is now used iteratively for numerical computation in major software libraries. One of Lauricella`s multivariate hypergeometric functions has been found to contain all elliptic integrals as special cases and has led to the introduction of symmetric canonical forms. These forms provide major economies in new integral tables and offer a significant advantage also for symbolic integration of elliptic integrals. Although partly expository the present paper includes some new proofs and proposes a new procedure for symbolic integration.

    Nonstoichiometry of metastable cubic {beta}{prime} and equilibrium tetragonal {beta} Al-Zr intermetallic phases of the nominal composition Al{sub 3}Zr in Al-rich alloys has been extensively studied. It is proposed that the ``dark contrast`` of {beta}{prime} core in {beta}{prime}/{sigma}{prime} complex precipitates, in Al-Li-Zr based alloys, is caused by incorporation of Al and Li atoms into the {beta}{prime} phase on Zr sublattice sites, forming nonstoichiometric Al-Zr intermetallic phases, rather than by Li partitioning only. {beta}{prime} particles contain very small amounts of Zr, approximately 5 at.%, much less than the stoichiometric 25 at.% in the Al{sub 3}Zr metastable phase. These particles are, according to simulation of high resolution images, of the Al{sub 3}(Al{sub 0.4}Li{sub 0.4}Zr{sub 0.2}) type. Nonstoichiometric particles of average composition Al{sub 4}Zr and Al{sub 6}Zr are observed also in the binary Al-Zr alloy, even after annealing for several hours at 600{degree}C.

  13. Effects of microstructural control on the failure kinetics and the reliability improvement of Al and Al-alloy interconnects

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kang, Seung Hyuk [Univ. of California, Berkeley, CA (United States)

    1996-12-01

    The reliability of microelectronic systems is often limited by electromigration failure in Al-based thin-film conducting lines which interconnect devices to form an integrated circuit. Under an applied electric field Al atoms migrate with the electron flow, causing a counterflow of vacancies that accumulate into voids, eventually leading to an open circuit failure. The work reported here is concerned with clarifying the microstructural mechanism of electromigration failure, and with developing a metallurgical method to improve the electromigration resistance of Al-based interconnects. Pure Al, Al-2Cu, and Al-2Cu-1Si lines with quasi-bamboo microstructures are explored as a function of heat treatment conditions and current density. The "weakest" microstructural unit that causes failure is identified by electron microscopy; with rare exceptions, failure occurs at the upstream end of the longest polygranular segment in a given line. This microstructural characteristic of electromigration failure is even observed in lines whose maximum segment lengths are less than a few microns. The time to failure appears to increase exponentially with decreasing longest polygranular segment length. A simple constitutive equation is reported to describe the failure kinetics as a function of the polygranular segment length that leads to failure. Given correct values of the kinetic constants included in the equation, this microstructure-based constitutive relation will provide a way to assess interconnect reliability. An effective metallurgical method that can eliminate relatively long polygranular segments is post-pattern annealing. This heat treatment particularly narrows the distribution of the longest polygranular segment lengths over a large set of lines. As a consequence, the time-to-failure distribution narrows as well, so that the time to first failure increases more substantially than the median time to failure.

  16. Entscheidung als Häresie

    Full Text Available Man könnte sagen, dass Aristoteles so etwas wie eine traditionelle und dominierende Auffassung der Entscheidung in der westlichen Philosophie gründet. Das Ziel dieses Aufsatzes ist es, diese Auffassung von Aristoteles zu entwerfen, einige ihrer wichtigsten Probleme anzusprechen, und sie damit zu kontrastieren, was ich Jacques Derridas häretische „Konzeptualisierung“ der Entscheidung nennen würde. Es wird gezeigt, dass diese häretische Thematisierung von Derrida nicht nur und einfach mit dem traditionellen aristotelischen Begriff bricht, sondern vielmehr auch zu Recht einige seiner wichtigsten Züge auf solcher Weise schärft, dass von diesem radikalisierten Standpunkt die Behandlung von Aristoteles als die Annullierung der Entscheidung zum Vorschein kommt. Es wird zudem impliziert, wie Derridas häretische Auffassung die Erneuerung der Ethik und Politik mit sich bringt.

  17. Instandhaltungsmanagement als Gestaltungsfeld Ganzheitlicher Produktionssysteme

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dombrowski, Uwe; Schulze, Sven; Otano, Isabel Crespo

    Sich kontinuierlich verändernde Rahmenbedingungen, wie beispielsweise eine steigende Variantenvielfalt, verkürzte Produktlebenszyklen sowie Kundenforderungen nach höherer Qualität, kürzeren Lieferzeiten und geringeren Kosten, fordern von produzierenden Unternehmen eine stetige Anpassung der Prozesse, der Organisation und der Strukturen. Seit den 90er Jahren versuchen immer mehr deutsche Unternehmen diesen veränderten Anforderungen mit der Einführung eines Ganzheitlichen Produktionssystems (GPS) zu begegnen. Ganzheitliche Produktionssysteme sind dabei in ihren Grundlagen an das Toyota Produktionssystem angelehnt, vereinigen aber auch weitere Methoden zu einem unternehmensspezifischen Regelwerk. Im Rahmen des langfristigen Trends zu unternehmensindividuellen Produktionssystemen wird sowohl in der Industrie als auch in der Forschung intensiv über das Toyota Produktionssystem, Lean Production, Lean Management und Ganzheitliche Produktionssysteme diskutiert, werden Konzepte zu Implementierung und Betrieb erstellt und die Wirtschaftlichkeit untersucht.

  19. Nanomechanical properties and thermal decomposition of Cu-Al2O3 composites for FGM applications

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available It is widely reported that copper-alumina (Cu-Al2O3 nanocomposite materials exhibit high potential for use in structural applications in which enhanced mechanical characteristics are required. The investigation of Cu-Al2O3 nanocomposites which are to form a functionally graded material (FGM structure in terms of nanomechanical/structural integrity and thermal stability is still scarce. In this work, fully characterized nanosized Al2O3 powder has been incorporated in Cu matrix in various compositions (2, 5 and 10 wt.% of Al2O3 content. The produced composites were evaluated in terms of their morphology, structural analysis, thermal behavior, nanomechanical properties and their extent of viscoplasticity. The results reveal that all nanocomposites degrade at elevated temperatures; increased surface mass gain with decreasing Al2O3 content was observed, while no such difference of % mass gain in 5 and 10 wt.% of Al and Al2O3 content in Cu was observed. The increase of Al2O3 wt.% content results in thermal stability enhancement of the nanocomposites. The thermal decomposition process of the material is reduced in the presence of 10 wt.% of Al2O3 content. This result for the matrix decomposition can be explained by a decrease in the diffusion of oxygen and volatile degradation products throughout the composite material due to the incorporation of Al and Al2O3. The Al2O3 powder enhances the overall thermal stability of the system. All samples exhibited significant pile-up of the materials after nanoindentation testing. Increasing the wt.% of Al2O3 content was found to increase the creep deformation of the samples as well as the hardness and elastic modulus values.

    Pelowski et al. [9] propose a constructive and expansive theoretical framework of response to an important section of the world of art, i.e. visual art, excluding verbal art and other forms. More than its conceptual predecessors, this framework is intended to guide investigation (1) not only of the influence of personality variations but also of the viewer's hierarchically structured self-image (ideal traits, general schemas, specific goals, action goals; p. 15); (2) not only of initial responses to low-level features but also of how those initial responses become the focus of high-level reactions (p. 7-8); and (3) not only of the sources of pleasure, interest, and appreciation but also of ;transformative; aesthetic outcomes (p. 35ff).

    In their target article published in this journal issue, Pelowski et al. [1] address the question of how humans experience, and respond to, visual art. They propose a multi-layered model of the representations and processes involved in assessing visual art objects that, furthermore, involves both bottom-up and top-down elements. Their model provides predictions for seven different outcomes of human aesthetic experience, based on few distinct features (schema congruence, self-relevance, and coping necessity), and connects the underlying processing stages to ;specific correlates of the brain; (a similar attempt was previously done for music by [2-4]). In doing this, the model aims to account for the (often profound) experience of an individual viewer in front of an art object.

    Our objective was to establish a valid and reliable battery of measures to evaluate frontotemporal dementia (FTD) in patients with ALS over the telephone. Thirty-one subjects were administered either in-person or by telephone-based screening followed by the opposite mode of testing two weeks later, using a modified version of the UCSF Cognitive Screening Battery. Equivalence testing was performed for in-person and telephone based tests. The standard ALS Cognitive Behavioral Screen (ALS-CBS) showed statistical equivalence at the 5% significance level compared to a revised phone version of the ALS-CBS. In addition, the Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT) and Center for Neurologic Study-Lability Scale (CNS-LS) were also found to be equivalent at the 5% and 10% significance level, respectively. Similarly, the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and the well-established Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status (TICS) were also statistically equivalent. Equivalence could not be claimed for the ALS-Frontal Behavioral Inventory (ALS-FBI) caregiver interview and the Written Verbal Fluency Index (WVFI). In conclusion, our study suggests that telephone-based versions of the ALS-CBS, COWAT, and CNS-LS may offer clinicians valid tools to detect frontotemporal changes in the ALS population. Development of telephone based cognitive testing for ALS could become an integral resource for population based research in the future.

  13. 27 Al MAS NMR Studies of HBEA Zeolite at Low to High Magnetic Fields

    27Al single pulse (SP) MAS NMR spectra of HBEA zeolites with high Si/Al ratios of 71 and 75 were obtained at three magnetic field strengths of 7.05, 11.75 and 19.97 T. High field 27Al MAS NMR spectra acquired at 19.97 T show significantly improved spectral resolution, resulting in at least two well-resolved tetrahedral-Al NMR peaks. Based on the results obtained from 27Al MAS and MQMAS NMR acquired at 19.97 T, four different quadrupole peaks are used to deconvolute the 27Al SP MAS spectra acquired at vari-ous fields by using the same set of quadrupole coupling constants, asymmetric parameters and relative integrated peak intensities for the tetrahedral Al peaks. The line shapes of individual peaks change from typical quadrupole line shape at low field to essentially symmetrical line shapes at high field. We demonstrate that for fully hydrated HBEA zeolites the effect of second order quadrupole interaction can be ignored and quantitative spectral analysis can be performed by directly fitting the high field spectra using mixed Gaussian/Lorentzian line shapes. Also, the analytical steps described in our work allow direct assignment of spectral intensity to individual Al tetrahedral sites (T-sites) of zeolite HBEA. Finally, the proposed concept is suggested generally applicable to other zeo-lite framework types, thus, allowing a direct probing of Al distributions by NMR spectroscopic methods in zeolites with high confi-dence.

  14. Catalyzed precipitation in Al-Cu-Si

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mitlin, D.; Morris, J. W.; Radmilovic, V.

    2000-11-01

    The work reported here concerns the effect of Si on the precipitation of θ' phase (metastable Al2Cu) during the isothermal aging of Al-2Cu-1 Si (wt pct). The binary alloys Al-2Cu and Al-1 Si were studied for comparison. Only two precipitate phases were detected: essentially pure Si in Al-1 Si and Al-2Cu-1 Si, and θ' (metastable Al2Cu) in Al-2Cu and Al-2Cu-1Si. On aging the ternary alloy at 225 °C, Si precipitates first and catalyzes the θ' phase. The precipitates in the ternary alloy are smaller, are more densely distributed, have lower aspect ratios, and coarsen more slowly than those in the binary Al-2Cu aged at the same temperature. While the shapes of individual θ' precipitates in binary Al-2Cu are strongly affected by the kinetic problem of nucleating growth ledges, which produces a significant scatter in the aspect ratio for samples of given thickness, the overall evolution of particle shape with size follows the predictions of the Khachaturyan-Hairapetyan (KH) thermoelastic theory, which reduces to κ= L/d ∞ √ L at large sizes. The KH theory provides an estimate for the interfacial tension of the broad Al- θ' interface of 85 to 96 mJ/m2, which is near the values for other low-energy interfaces in Al, such as the twin boundary energy (100 mJ/m2) and the antiphase boundary energy in δ' Al3Li (70 mJ/m2). Si and θ' precipitates in Al-2Cu-1 Si have a strong elastic interaction because of their compensating strain fields. This elastic interaction promotes the nucleation of θ' precipitates on Si, decreases the expected aspect ratio of θ', and inhibits coarsening. Finally, Si precipitation in ternary Al-2Cu-1 Si differs from that in binary Al-1 Si in that the Si precipitates are coarser, more equiaxed, and more extensively twinned. These changes appear to be effects of Cu, which increases the solubility of Si in Al and adsorbs on the Si-Al interface, promoting twinning by a “step-poisoning” effect at the interface.

    Rafael, R.; Puyoo, E.; Malhaire, C.

    2017-11-01

    In this work, the electrical transport in Al/Al2O3/Al junctions under mechanical stress is investigated in the perspective to use them as strain sensors. The metal/insulator/metal junctions are elaborated with a low temperature process (≤200 °C) fully compatible with CMOS back-end-of-line. The conduction mechanism in the structure is found to be Fowler-Nordheim tunneling, and efforts are made to extract the relevant physical parameters. Gauge factors up to -32.5 were found in the fabricated devices under tensile stress. Finally, theoretical mechanical considerations give strong evidence that strain sensitivity in Al/Al2O3/Al structures originates not only from geometrical deformations but also from the variation of interface barrier height and/or effective electronic mass in the tunneling oxide layer.

    Concern over toxins and public health threats resulting from Cyanobacterial Harmful Algal Blooms (CHABs) have gained attention as reoccurring and seasonal blooms persist in many waters. Concordantly, climate change has been suggested to increase the intensity, duration, and frequency of CHAB events. Humans may be exposed to the cyanotoxins produced by cyanobacteria via the food chain, drinking water, recreational use of waterbodies and by aerosolization. Exposure to the cyanobacterial neurotoxin, β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) that has been found in the brains of ALS patients is a hypothesized mechanism. The goals of this research initiative are to investigate spatiotemporal relationships between inland lake water quality and ALS across northern New England (NNE). Multiscale satellite remote sensing was integrated with in situ lake and toxin sampling to provide robust spatiotemporal exposure risk metrics characterizing CHAB. Semi-analytical, shape, and empirical algorithms were bldned together tp generate spatiotemporal measures of chl-a and PC with R2 ranging from 0.65-0.92 using withheld samples. Postmortem aerosolization analysis found 85% of high risk patients to express phycobillin in lung tissue using fluroesence microscopy. To scal eup to the region we employed complementing spatial statistics and a Bayesian hierarchical framework to model relationships between lake risk metrics and ALS case location across NNE. The eco-epidemiolgical modeling results show that on average poorer water quality conditions and higher measures of cyanobacteria are associated with increased odds of belonging to a normalized ALS hot spots and risk of ALS. This has broad societal impacts as the frequency, duration, and magnitude of cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms are expanding and this work helps characterize lake ecosystem services and human health.

    The ground-state configuration of 35Al has been studied via Coulomb dissociation (CD) using the LAND-FRS setup (GSI, Darmstadt) at a relativistic energy of ˜403 MeV/nucleon. The measured inclusive differential CD cross section for 35Al, integrated up to 5.0 MeV relative energy between the 34Al core and the neutron using a Pb target, is 78(13) mb. The exclusive measured CD cross section that populates various excited states of 34Al is 29(7) mb. The differential CD cross section of 35Al→34Al+n has been interpreted in the light of a direct breakup model, and it suggests that the possible ground-state spin and parity of 35Al could be, tentatively, 1 /2+ or 3 /2+ or 5 /2+ . The valence neutrons, in the ground state of 35Al, may occupy a combination of either l =3 ,0 or l =1 ,2 orbitals coupled with the 34Al core in the ground and isomeric state(s), respectively. This hints of a particle-hole configuration of the neutron across the magic shell gaps at N =20 ,28 which suggests narrowing the magic shell gap. If the 5 /2+ is the ground-state spin-parity of 35Al as suggested in the literature, then the major ground-state configuration of 35Al is a combination of 34Al(g.s.;4-) ⊗νp3/2 and 34Al(isomer;1+) ⊗νd3/2 states. The result from this experiment has been compared with that from a previous knockout measurement and a calculation using the SDPF-M interaction.

The Al2O3 particles in sub-micron sizes distribute uniformly in the matrix, and the Cu displaced from the in situ reaction forms net-like alloy phases with other alloy elements. The hardness and the tensile strength of the composites at room temperature have a slight increase as compared to that of the matrix. However, the tensile strength at 350 ℃ has reached 90.23 MPa, or 16.92 MPa higher than that of the matrix. The mechanism of the reaction in the CuO/Al system was studied by using of differential scanning calorimetry(DSC and thermodynamic calculation. The reaction between CuO and Al involves two steps. First, CuO reacts with Al to form Cu2O and Al2O3 at the melting temperature of the matrix alloy, and second, Cu2O reacts with Al to form Cu and Al2O3 at a higher temperature. At ZL109 casting temperature of 750–780 ℃, the second step can also take place because of the effect of exothermic reaction of the first step.

    Full Text Available This present paper shows the behavior of functional integrity of the state Ti6Al4V alloy under reciprocating sliding wear conditions in acomparative way for two different counter materials, steel and ceramicballs in dry and corrosive environment (3.5% NaCl. The surface integrity analysis of the dry reciprocating wear tests was based on the evolution of The roughness parameters with the applied load. In the case of reciprocating wear tests in corrosive environment the surface integrity analysis was based on electrochemical parameters. Comparative analysis of the evolution of the roughness parameters with the applied load shows a higher stability of the Ti6Al4V/Al2O3 contact pair, while from the point of view of the electrochemical parameters the Tribological properties are worse than Ti6Al4V/steel ball contact pair.

    In this study, an energetic material was prepared by depositing nano-Al on CuO arrays via electrophoretic deposition (EPD), which offers a feasible route for nano-Al integration. The morphology and structure of the CuO arrays and Al/CuO composites were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The CuO arrays were homogenously salix leaf-like structure with a width of ⁓150 to 200 nm. The energy density of Al/CuO composites was approximate to 1454.5 J/g by integrating the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) plot and the combustion performance was recorded by a high-speed camera. Moreover, the combustion flames were violent and the whole reaction process only lasted 72.2 ms, indicating that the energy of the Al/CuO nanothermite can be released effectively.

    Background and Purpose Ethnic minorities are at higher stroke risk than non-Hispanic whites yet are less likely to have optimal vascular risk factor control. There is a need to develop culturally sensitive strategies for enhancing vascular risk reduction in minority patients with stroke. This study aimed to develop a postdischarge report card to boost treatment adherence among elderly Spanish-speaking patients with stroke within an urban health system. Methods This study included a total of 13 Spanish-only speaking participants aged ≥60 years discharged from a local government hospital in Los Angeles within 18 months of an index ischemic stroke and 6 caregivers engaged in focus groups and interviews. Structured interviews were conducted with 11 care providers and 9 administrators at the hospital. Framework analysis examined the data and elicited themes to adapt a pre-existing patient report card tool. Results Spontaneously using the same phrase, “Al pie de la letra,” several participants expressed a need to follow medical instructions accurately to prevent recurrent stroke and identified barriers/facilitators for doing so. They made comments about the pre-existing report card, advising several changes, including the clarification of phrases, and written instructions to explain the need for the card and how to fill it out. The providers and administrators recommended avenues for successfully using the card at the hospital. A new report card was created that incorporated all major perspectives. Conclusions Crafting a culturally sensitive tool for promoting treatment adherence in elderly Spanish-only-speaking patients with stroke within an urban health system using a participatory methodology is feasible. The efficacy of this new report card should be tested in a randomized controlled trial. PMID:20167904

    Magnesium based nanocomposites, due to their excellent dimensional stability and mechanical integrity, have a lot of potential to replace the existing commercial Al alloys and steels used in aerospace and automotive applications. Mg-Al alloys are commercially used in the form of AZ (magnesium-aluminum-zinc) and AM (magnesium-aluminum-manganese) series in automobile components. However, the Mg17Al12 phase in Mg-Al alloys is a low melting phase which results in a poor creep and high temperature...

    Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death in the Spanish population. The detection and control of cardiovascular risk factors are fundamental in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The main objectives of this study are to analyse the attitudes and therapeutic decisions of Primary Care (PC) physicians when treating hypertension (HT) and diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2), with the aim of establishing the situation and eventually proposing improvement strategies. A national ecological, multicentre, cross-sectional, and descriptive study was conducted in 2013. A questionnaire was used and 1,028 PC physicians took part in the study. A total of 92.9% of the investigators consulted have indicated that they follow the guidelines for evaluation, treatment, and diagnosis of HT, and 91.4% in the case of diabetes. The latter is diagnosed as a casual finding, while HT is diagnosed through active investigation in patients with other risk factors. Combined therapy takes more than 6 months to take effect in patients with HT, and between 8 and 9 months in diabetic patients. The percentage of non-compliance is similar (10-40%) in both pathologies. Around half the physicians questioned considered interaction with the specialist to be good or excellent (46% HT and 57.3% DM2). Clinical practices in PC for HT and DM2 have some basic criteria in common. The interaction with the specialist is good, but there is a considerable margin for improvement.

    Full Text Available One method of legal istinbâth agreed upon by the ushul fiqh scholars is al-qiyâs. In al-qiyâs was appeared some serious problems dealing with the search for al-'illat. Al-'illat as one of the obligation of al-qiyâs occupies the most important position, so that the method of al-qiyâs can be applied in the future correctly, and will give legal decision correctly. In searching for al-'illat, the ushul fiqh scholars use logic of linguistic typically in the search for truth, the other hand they also must be able to impulse, imagination, and creativity in decide on a case, and they are no longer so glued rigidly to the al-qath'iyyah al-dalâlah. One way to look for al-'illat is al-manâth, which divided into three parts, namely tanqîh al-manâth, tahqîq al-manâth, and takhrîj al-manâth. Searching for the truth of qiyâs method stresses on logical translation that sometimes mix with intuition, imagination and creativity. Therefore, qiyâs can go down to the law problems related to the people’s attitude deeper. While al-manath is one of the methods to look for al-illat where the ulama ushul fiqh draw their intuition, imagination, and creations to solve some problems, and they are not too stiff to qath’î theoremsCopyright (c 2015 by Al-Ihkam.

    Full Text Available This paper explores the understanding of tarbawi (education hadith from one of the major influential clerics in the Islamic educational system, especially in pesantren. He is Burhan al Islam al Zarnuji with his landmark book Ta’lim al Muta’allim. The conclusion that can be drawn is that al Zarnuji has shades of sufistical view in understanding tarbawi hadith. This can be seen in his understanding of hadith on obligation to seek knowledge (thalab al ilmi faridhatun ‘ala kulli muslimin wa muslimatin, which is interpreted as ilm al hal, the science concerning the condition of the human religious or simplistically said as the religious sciences; and the hadith of intention of studying (innama al a’malu bi al niyyat with the intention for the sake of the hereafter and religion, not mundane. Such an understanding is not something taken for granted, but it can be reinterpreted and perfected in accordance with the spirit of the times of context.

    Full Text Available We report in this paper on the study of surface acoustic wave (SAW resonators based on an AlN/titanium alloy (TC4 structure. The AlN/TC4 structure with different thicknesses of AlN films was simulated, and the acoustic propagating modes were discussed. Based on the simulation results, interdigital transducers with a periodic length of 24 μm were patterned by lift-off photolithography techniques on the AlN films/TC4 structure, while the AlN film thickness was in the range 1.5–3.5 μm. The device performances in terms of quality factor (Q-factor and electromechanical coupling coefficient (k2 were determined from the measure S11 parameters. The Q-factor and k2 were strongly dependent not only on the normalized AlN film thickness but also on the full-width at half-maximum (FWHM of AlN (002 peak. The dispersion curve of the SAW phase velocity was analyzed, and the experimental results showed a good agreement with simulations. The temperature behaviors of the devices were also presented and discussed. The prepared SAW resonators based on AlN/TC4 structure have potential applications in integrated micromechanical sensing systems.

    Full Text Available La existencia de brechas asistenciales entre las necesidades de salud de la población y los recursos humanos disponibles para responder a ellas, así como las limitaciones de los métodos que permitirían estimar dichas necesidades, constituyen un factor clave a trabajar para el desarrollo e integración de los sistemas de salud de los países de la región. El objetivo de este trabajo es iniciar un primer examen bibliográfico de las herramientas y procedimientos, presentes en la literatura, empleados para estimar y programar la dotación de recursos humanos en salud y, a partir de la revisión realizada, identificar las ventajas, limitaciones y complementariedades de dichas herramientas, planteando la necesidad de profundizar estudios referentes a su aplicabilidad en el diseño de políticas sanitarias regionales. Desde esa perspectiva se presenta el concepto de Bienes Públicos Globales en Salud, cuya generación y aprovechamiento resulta una alternativa estratégica para la mejora e integración de los sistemas de salud de la región y la población a la que asisten.The existence of gaps between the population's health needs and the human resources available for meeting them, as well as limitations in the methods to estimate such needs, constitute key factors to be tackled in the development and integration of health systems in Latin America. This aim of this study was to conduct an initial literature review on the tools and procedures used to estimate and plan human resources allocation in health and to use this review as the basis for identifying the advantages, limitations, and complementary characteristics of these tools, subsequently proposing the need for more in-depth studies on their applicability for designing regional health policies. The article then presents the concept of global public health goods, the generation and use of which results in a strategic alternative for improving both health systems integration in the region and
