    Full Text Available La fabricación artesanal del queso, es una actividad integradora del sistema producto leche. Para evaluar las condiciones de comercialización y caracterización del queso fresco en mercados y tianguis de Toluca, Estado de México, se realizó un muestreo por conveniencia, obteniendo 64 piezas de queso fresco de mercados establecidos e itinerantes, y se aplicó una encuesta abierta a comerciantes durante el periodo agosto a octubre de 2014. La procedencia de los quesos se obtuvo de las regiones: (A Valle de Toluca, (B otros municipios de la entidad, (C de origen desconocido y (D otros estados del país. Los valores de pH y temperatura del queso se midieron en el punto de venta. El contenido de materia seca, cenizas, grasa, proteína y NaCl se realizó por métodos oficiales. El origen del queso en los mercados fue mayoritariamente de la región A; la presentación comercial común fue de forma circular con un peso de 100 a 250 g. Los rangos de los parámetros evaluados fueron: pH (4.84-6.07, humedad (42.71-66.66 %, materia seca (33.3-68.9 %, cenizas (2.65-5.24 %, grasa (12-32 %, proteína (16.81-26.62 % y NaCl (0.29-1.44 %. Las condiciones de comercialización y el abasto regional en los mercados son afectadas por un manejo inadecuado del producto y la competencia de quesos industrializados. Se concluye que el queso fresco comercializado en el municipio de Toluca, puede ser considerado un queso artesanal genuino propio de la región del valle de Toluca, que debe ser preservado por su interés como patrimonio en la gastronomía mexicana y su importancia socioeconómica y alimentaria regional.

    Full Text Available El nevus blanco esponjoso (NBE es una rara condición autosómica dominante, caracterizada por placas blancas bilaterales en la mucosa, de aspecto esponjoso, blandas a la palpación y que pueden escamarse. Los tratamientos son paliativos; y el uso de antibióticos, en especial la tetraciclina, ha demostrando buenos resultados en su control. Este trabajo presenta tres casos clínicos de una familia afectada por NBE, donde se discuten los posibles diagnósticos diferenciales y conductas terapéuticas indicadas. Un paciente masculino de 52 años de edad acudió a la clínica aquejado de lesiones blancas bilaterales. El paciente notó las lesiones 30 años antes, sin lograr un diagnóstico final de las mismas. Después de la anamnesis y del examen clínico fue realizada una biopsia incisional. La reunión de los datos clínicos e histopatológicos llevó al diagnóstico de NBE. Se le solicitó al paciente que indagase entre sus familiares con respecto a lesiones semejantes. Se detectó que el hijo de 19 años y la hija de 25 eran portadores de placas blancas en la mucosa yugal. Como no había afectación estética, se optó por no intervenir en las lesiones. El nevus blanco esponjoso es una lesión genética que debe ser diferenciada de otras patologías localizadas y sistémicas importantes, que tienen repercusiones serias para el individuo. Como no hay un tratamiento curativo para el NBE, el papel del cirujano dentista es diagnosticar esta lesión, aclarar al paciente sobre la naturaleza benigna y autolimitante del NBE y si fuera necesario desde el punto de vista estético, aplicar diferentes modalidades terapéuticas.

    Full Text Available La especie Aspidosperma quebracho-blanco Schlecht es la más abundante del Parque Chaqueño y no es utilizada en la producción de bienes de alto valor agregado debido a la inestabilidad dimensional de su madera. Una de las maneras de mejorar la estabilidad dimensional es el engrosado de la pared celular con polietilenglicol (PEG. El objetivo de este trabajo fue determinar el efecto del PEG de peso molecular 300 y 600 en la estabilidad dimensional, utilizando como parámetro de control el coeficiente de retractabilidad de la madera citada. Las muestras se impregnaron en una Planta Piloto con PEG, a través del proceso Bethell, según Norma IRAM Núm. 9511. Posteriormente se secaron hasta un contenido de humedad (CH del 10 %. Los mejores resultados se lograron impregnando la madera con PEG 600, a una concentración del 50 % en solución acuosa, a una presión de 12 kg·cm-2 durante 120 minutos, lo que permitió disminuir el coeficiente de retractabilidad de esta madera en 58.2 %.

    Binder, Gary A.; /Caltech /SLAC

    2010-08-25

    In order to make accurate measurements of dark energy, a system is needed to monitor the focus and alignment of the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) to be located on the Blanco 4m Telescope for the upcoming Dark Energy Survey. One new approach under development is to fit out-of-focus star images to a point spread function from which information about the focus and tilt of the camera can be obtained. As a first test of a new algorithm using this idea, simulated star images produced from a model of DECam in the optics software Zemax were fitted. Then, real images from the Mosaic II imager currently installed on the Blanco telescope were used to investigate the algorithm's capabilities. A number of problems with the algorithm were found, and more work is needed to understand its limitations and improve its capabilities so it can reliably predict camera alignment and focus.

  13. Project Rio Blanco: site restoration. Final report

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1978-01-01

    Project Rio Blanco was a joint Government-industry experiment using nuclear explosives to stimulate the flow of natural gas from low permeability formations which could not be economically produced through conventional methods. The project consisted of the simultaneous detonation of three nuclear explosives on May 17, 1973, in a 7,000 foot well in northwestern Colorado. Gas production testing and project evaluation continued through June 1976. The site cleanup and restoration planning phase began in December 1975 and was concluded with the issuance of an operational plan, Project Rio Blanco Site Cleanup and Restoration Plan, NVO-173, in May 1976. Actual site restoration activities were conducted during the period from July to November 1976. The activities throughout the restoration period are summarized and the final site status, including the disposition of all project facilities and the status of all project related wells after plug and abandonment and recompletion work are described

  14. Heating effects in Rio Blanco rock

    1975-01-01

    Samples of ''sandstone'' from near the site of the upper Rio Blanco nuclear explosion were heated in the laboratory at temperatures between 600 and 900 0 C. The composition and amount of noncondensable (dry) gas released were measured and compared to the amount and composition of gas found underground following the explosion. The gas released from the rock heated in the laboratory contained approximately 80 percent CO 2 and 10 percent H 2 ; the balance was CO and CH 4 . With increasing temperature, the amounts of CO 2 , CO, and H 2 released increased. The composition of gas released by heating Rio Blanco rock in the laboratory is similar to the composition of gas found after the nuclear explosion except that it contains less natural gas (CH 4 , C 2 H 6 . . .). The amount of noncondensable gas released by heating the rock increases from approximately 0.1 mole/kg of rock at 600 0 C to 0.9 mole/kg at 900 0 C. Over 90 percent of the volatile components of the rock are released in less than 10 h at 900 0 C. A comparison of the amount of gas released by heating rock in the laboratory to the amount of gas released by the heat of the Rio Blanco nuclear explosion suggests that the explosion released the volatile material from about 0.42 mg of rock per joule of explosive energy (1700 to 1800 tonnes per kt).

    We obtain lithium abundances for G and K stars in Blanco 1, an open cluster with an age similar to, or slightly younger than, the Pleiades. We critically examine previous spectroscopic abundance analyses of Blanco 1 and conclude that while there were flaws in earlier work, it is likely that Blanco 1 is close in overall metallicity to the older Hyades cluster and more metal-rich than the Pleiades. However, we find Blanco 1 has Li abundances and rotation rates similar to the Pleiades, contradic...

  16. FRESCO: Referential compression of highly similar sequences.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wandelt, Sebastian; Leser, Ulf

    2013-01-01

    In many applications, sets of similar texts or sequences are of high importance. Prominent examples are revision histories of documents or genomic sequences. Modern high-throughput sequencing technologies are able to generate DNA sequences at an ever-increasing rate. In parallel to the decreasing experimental time and cost necessary to produce DNA sequences, computational requirements for analysis and storage of the sequences are steeply increasing. Compression is a key technology to deal with this challenge. Recently, referential compression schemes, storing only the differences between a to-be-compressed input and a known reference sequence, gained a lot of interest in this field. In this paper, we propose a general open-source framework to compress large amounts of biological sequence data called Framework for REferential Sequence COmpression (FRESCO). Our basic compression algorithm is shown to be one to two orders of magnitudes faster than comparable related work, while achieving similar compression ratios. We also propose several techniques to further increase compression ratios, while still retaining the advantage in speed: 1) selecting a good reference sequence; and 2) rewriting a reference sequence to allow for better compression. In addition,we propose a new way of further boosting the compression ratios by applying referential compression to already referentially compressed files (second-order compression). This technique allows for compression ratios way beyond state of the art, for instance,4,000:1 and higher for human genomes. We evaluate our algorithms on a large data set from three different species (more than 1,000 genomes, more than 3 TB) and on a collection of versions of Wikipedia pages. Our results show that real-time compression of highly similar sequences at high compression ratios is possible on modern hardware.

  17. Environmental impacts associated with Project Rio Blanco

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Alldredge, A.W.; Whicker, F.W.; Hanson, W.C.

    Project Rio Blanco, an experiment involving deep underground detonation of three 30-kton nuclear explosives designed to stimulate natural gas flow in geologic formations of low permeability, was conducted in western Colorado on 17 May 1973. Environmental impacts associated with this experiment were divided into three categories: radiation, ground motion, and conventional physical activities. Radiation and ground motion are unique to this type experiment while conventional activities would be associated with any type of resource development. The objective of observations made at Rio Blanco was to qualitatively and, where possible, quantitatively ascertain environmental impacts associated with the project. Observations indicated that ground motion and conventional activities appeared to cause the greatest impacts. Ground motion impacts were most severe within 2.4 km of the emplacement well (EW) and were predominantly associated with steep ravine and stream banks and rocky cliffs. Following the detonation, flow and turbidity had increased in a small stream adjacent to the EW. Animals receiving deleterious impacts were those associated with stream banks, cliffs and burrows. No mortality or injury was observed in any large animals. (U.S.)

  18. Rio Blanco: nuclear operations and chimney reentry

    Woodruff, W.R.; Guido, R.S.

    1975-01-01

    Rio Blanco was the third experiment in the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's Plowshare Program to develop technology to stimulate gas production from geologic formations not conducive to production by conventional means. The project was sponsored by CER Geonuclear Corporation, with the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory providing the explosives and several technical programs, such as spall measurement. Three nuclear explosives specifically designed for this application were detonated simultaneously in a minimum-diameter emplacement well using many commercially available but established-reliability components. The explosive system performed properly under extreme temperature and pressure conditions. Emplacement and stemming operations were designed with the aim of simplifying both the emplacement and reentry and fully containing the detonation products. An integrated command and control system was used with communication to all three explosives through a single coaxial cable. Reentry and the initial production testing are completed. To date 98 million standard ft 3 of chimney gas have been produced. (auth)

  19. FRESCO+: an improved O2 A-band cloud retrieval algorithm for tropospheric trace gas retrievals

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. van Roozendael

    2008-11-01

    Full Text Available The FRESCO (Fast Retrieval Scheme for Clouds from the Oxygen A-band algorithm has been used to retrieve cloud information from measurements of the O2 A-band around 760 nm by GOME, SCIAMACHY and GOME-2. The cloud parameters retrieved by FRESCO are the effective cloud fraction and cloud pressure, which are used for cloud correction in the retrieval of trace gases like O3 and NO2. To improve the cloud pressure retrieval for partly cloudy scenes, single Rayleigh scattering has been included in an improved version of the algorithm, called FRESCO+. We compared FRESCO+ and FRESCO effective cloud fractions and cloud pressures using simulated spectra and one month of GOME measured spectra. As expected, FRESCO+ gives more reliable cloud pressures over partly cloudy pixels. Simulations and comparisons with ground-based radar/lidar measurements of clouds show that the FRESCO+ cloud pressure is about the optical midlevel of the cloud. Globally averaged, the FRESCO+ cloud pressure is about 50 hPa higher than the FRESCO cloud pressure, while the FRESCO+ effective cloud fraction is about 0.01 larger. The effect of FRESCO+ cloud parameters on O3 and NO2 vertical column density (VCD retrievals is studied using SCIAMACHY data and ground-based DOAS measurements. We find that the FRESCO+ algorithm has a significant effect on tropospheric NO2 retrievals but a minor effect on total O3 retrievals. The retrieved SCIAMACHY tropospheric NO2 VCDs using FRESCO+ cloud parameters (v1.1 are lower than the tropospheric NO2VCDs which used FRESCO cloud parameters (v1.04, in particular over heavily polluted areas with low clouds. The difference between SCIAMACHY tropospheric NO2 VCDs v1.1 and ground-based MAXDOAS measurements performed in Cabauw, The Netherlands, during the DANDELIONS campaign is about −2.12×1014molec cm−2.

    In the present work we characterized samples of plasters and pictorial layers taken from a fresco in the Acireale Cathedral. The fresco represents the Coronation of Saint Venera, patron saint of this Ionian town. By performing a detailed spectroscopic analysis of the plaster preparation layer by Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction (XRD), and of the painting layer by FTIR and confocal Raman microspectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy+energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, and XRD, we were able to identify the pigments and the binders present. In particular, Raman investigation was crucial to the characterization of the pigments thanks to the high resolution of the confocal apparatus used. It is worth stressing that the simultaneous use of complementary techniques was able to provide more complete information for the conservation of the artifact we studied

    Premna odorata Blanco (Lamiaceae) is a medicinal plant traditionally used in Albay Province, in southeastern Luzon, Philippines to treat tuberculosis. This study aimed to determine the antitubercular property of the crude extract and sub-extracts of the leaves, and to isolate the bioactive principles from the active fractions. Through extraction, solvent polarity-based fractionation and silica gel chromatography purification of the DCM sub-extract, compound mixtures from the bioactive fractions were isolated and screened for their in vitro antimycobacterial activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using the colorimetric Microplate Alamar Blue assay (MABA). The crude methanolic extract and sub-extracts showed poor inhibitory activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv (MIC≥128µg/mL). However, increased inhibitory potency was observed for fractions eluted from the DCM sub-extract (MIC=54 to 120µg/mL). Further purification of the most active fraction (MIC=54µg/mL) led to the isolation of a 1-heneicosyl formate (1), 4:1 mixture of β-sitosterol (2), stigmasterol (3) and diosmetin (4), which were identified through GC-MS analysis (with dereplication) and NMR experiments. The MIC of compound 1 was 8µg/mL. The results of this study provide scientific basis for the traditional use of Premna odorata as treatment for tuberculosis. Copyright © 2014.

  4. Rio Blanco massive hydraulic fracture: project definition

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1976-01-01

    A recent Federal Power Commission feasibility study assessed the possibility of economically producing gas from three Rocky Mountain basins. These basins have potentially productive horizons 2,000 to 4,000 feet thick containing an estimated total of 600 trillion cubic feet of gas in place. However, the producing sands are of such low permeability and heterogeneity that conventional methods have failed to develop these basins economically. The Natural Gas Technology Task Force, responsible for preparing the referenced feasibility study, determined that, if effective well stimulation methods for these basins can be developed, it might be possible to recover 40 to 50 percent of the gas in place. The Task Force pointed out two possible underground fracturing methods: Nuclear explosive fracturing, and massive hydraulic fracturing. They argued that once technical viability has been demonstrated, and with adequate economic incentives, there should be no reason why one or even both of these approaches could not be employed, thus making a major contribution toward correcting the energy deficiency of the Nation. A joint Government-industry demonstration program has been proposed to test the relative effectiveness of massive hydraulic fracturing of the same formation and producing horizons that were stimulated by the Rio Blanco nuclear project

The instrument was first applied to samples simulating various detachment situations, and then transferred to the Vatican Museum to detect detachments and inhomogeneities in the stanza di Eliodoro, one of the 'Raphael's stanze'.

  7. Analysis of fresco paintings by X-ray fluorescence method

    In this work we present the application of X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRFA) to examine fresco paintings from the Karlstejn castle. The X-ray fluorescence apparatus built and operated in the Laboratory of Quantitative Methods in Research of Ancient Monuments was used for the purpose of fresco paintings measurements. The X-ray sources (radionuclides) generate the characteristic X-ray photons from the sample. The Si(Li) detector measures numbers and energies of photons emitted from the specimen. The energy and number of photons detected can be converted into kind and amount of measured atoms. These results give data for qualitative and quantitative analysis of samples. XRFA is relatively simple and non-destructive method. Capability of in-situ measurement is one of big advantages of this method. The radionuclide sources of exciting radiation (e.g. 55 Fe enables the excitation of elements with Z up to 23, 238 Pu is used in interval of Z from 20 to 39 etc.) were used. An Si(Li) semiconductor detector with a 5 l Dewar vessel and portable spectroscopy system enable the in situ measurement. Narrow collimation of the exciting beam makes it possible to select the measured area of fresco painting. The valuable fresco paintings from the Karlstejn castle were investigated in this way. The measurements were carried out in collaboration with the Analytical Laboratory of the State Institute for the Preservation of Historic Monuments. A suitable analysis of paintings makes it possible to detect the kind of colours and evaluate changes in the surface colour of paintings and suggest useful and timely procedures for their conservation and restoration.

    Large sections of San Marcos, TX were flooded in Oct. 1998, May 2015, and Oct. 2015. Much of the flooding in Oct. 1998 and Oct. 2015 was produced by overbank flooding of San Marcos River and its tributaries by spills from upstream dams. The May 2015 flooding was almost entirely produced by backwater flooding from the Blanco River whose confluence is approximately 2.2 miles southeast of downtown. We use the stage height of the Blanco River to generate maps of the areas of San Marcos that are lower than the flood peaks and compare those results with data for the observed extent of flooding in San Marcos. Our preliminary results suggest that the flooding occurred at locations more than 20 feet lower than the maximum stage height of the Blanco River at San Marcos gage (08171350). This suggest that the datum for either gage 08171350 or 08170500 (San Marcos River at San Marcos) or both are incorrect. There are plans for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct a Blanco River bypass that will divert Blanco River floodwaters approximately 2 miles farther downstream, but the $60 million price makes its implementation problematic.

    Full Text Available El color tiene un impacto considerable en la percepción general del paisaje urbano. La luz resalta las superficies, la textura subraya los materiales. Cuando en un paisaje se realiza cualquier intervención, ésta se convierte en atracción visual en relación a su contexto, siendo necesario considerar los factores determinantes de esta nueva relación. El empleo del blanco brillante supone introducir un elemento perceptivo fuerte. Paradójicamente, es el color más agresivo. Los materiales naturales, como la propia naturaleza, tienden a ser complejos en su textura y en sus tonos. El uso generalizado de productos industriales está conduciendo a un empobrecimiento cromático de los paisajes urbanos. El futuro del color blanco pasa por un cambio en su concepción de elemento decorativo hasta convertirlo en fundamento del proyecto, aprovechando sus cualidades de gradación tonal, contraste, expansión espacial y composición de escalas y formas.The colour has a significant impact on the overall perception of an urban environment. Light plays on surfaces, the texture of materials are noticed. Since any object introduced into the environment becomes a visual target in relation to its context, it is necessary to considerer the factors determining that relationship. Brilliant white forms a visual target that attracts the eye. Paradoxically, is the most intrusive colour. Natural materials, like nature itself, tend to be richly textured and subtly coloured. Widely use of industrial products is leading to a chromatic impoverishment on the urbanscape. The future of white is going through a change in its conception as decorative element, until it is turned to project foundation thanks to its qualities of tonal gradation, contrast, spatial expansion and composition of scales and forms.

    Queso fresco, is a Hispanic non-fermented cheese highly susceptible to contamination with L. monocytogenes. This research was aimed to determine the effect of GRAS antimicrobial ingredients to control L. monocytogenes. Antimicrobials included caprylic acid (CA), Nisaplin ® (N, 2.5% nisin), a mixture of sodium lactate and sodium diacetate (SL/SD), Lactococcus lactis sbp. lactis DPC 3147, monolaurin, and lactic acid (LA). Batches of queso fresco curds were inoculated with 10 4  CFU/g and stored at 4 °C for three weeks. During storage the count of L. monocytogenes reached 7 to 8 Log CFU/g in control samples. Most individual antimicrobial treatments resulted in less than 1 Log CFU/g reductions in final counts, with the exception of N (0.5 g/kg) and CA (2.9 g/kg) that caused more than 3 and 5 Log CFU/g differences with controls, respectively. Mixtures of ingredients were more effective in inhibiting L. monocytogenes growth, and treatments with N and CA consistently delivered 6 Log CFU/g less counts than controls. Supplementation of 12 g/kg LA to treatments with SL/SD (3%/0.22%) caused differences of more than 4 Log CFU/g in final Listeria populations. Samples treated with the binary mixtures of N and CA (0.5 and 0.7 g/kg, respectively) were evaluated in a consumer panel (n = 67). Panelists slightly preferred control and commercial over treated samples, but all samples were in average rated between "slightly liking" and "moderately liking." These experiments indicated that combined use of antimicrobial ingredients may be an effective way to control the population of Listeria monocytogenes in queso fresco. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

    The subflorescence and efflorescence phenomena are widely acknowledged as the major causes of permanent damage to fresco wall paintings. They are related to the occurrence of cycles of dry/wet conditions inside the walls. Therefore, it is essential to identify the presence of water on the decorated surfaces and inside the walls. Nondestructive testing in industrial applications have confirmed that active infrared thermography with continuous timed images acquisition can improve the outcomes of thermal analysis aimed to moisture identification. In spite of that, in cultural heritage investigations these techniques have not been yet used extensively on a regular basis. This paper illustrates an application of these principles in order to evaluate the decay of fresco mural paintings in a medieval chapel located in North-West of Italy. One important feature of this study is the use of a robotic system called aIRview that can be utilized to automatically acquire and process thermal images. Multiple accurate thermal views of the inside walls of the building have been produced in a survey that lasted several days. Signal processing algorithms based on Fast Fourier Transform analysis have been applied to the acquired data in order to formulate trustworthy hypotheses about the deterioration mechanisms.

    Supplemental structural bracing was designed and installed for the 180-ft-tall Colony Tower, an experimental oil shale processing retort structure, in anticipation of its lateral response to the Rio Blanco detonation. The tower is a steel structure with both horizontal and vertical diagonal bracing. Data obtained from the earlier Project Rulison detonation indicated that an evaluation study was necessary. Design criteria that would provide an adequate margin of safety were developed based on predicted Rio Blanco ground motion. The evaluation of the unmodified structure showed that several bracing members would be subjected to forces exceeding their yield strength, and some would reach a level at which failure could occur. Further analyses were made with assumed modified bracing members. A final scheme for modified vertical bracing was established and installed. After modification, the response of the tower during the Rio Blanco detonation was measured by instruments on the ground and at various locations on the tower, and no evidence of damage was discovered. The modification of the Colony Tower and the procedures used to determine these modifications show the usefulness of current ground motion and structural response prediction technology for forecasting dynamic behavior of important structures subjected to ground motion from underground nuclear explosions.

    Hispanic-style cheeses are one of the fastest growing varieties in the United States, making up approximately 2% of the total cheese production in this country. Queso Fresco is one of most popular Hispanic-style cheeses. Protein extracts from several varieties of Mexican Queso Fresco and model Queso Fresco were analyzed for potential antihypertensive activity. Many Quesos Frescos obtained from Mexico are made from raw milk and therefore the native microflora is included in the cheese-making process. Model Queso Fresco samples were made from pasteurized milk and did not utilize starter cultures. Water-soluble protein extracts from 6 Mexican Quesos Frescos and 12 model cheeses were obtained and assayed for their ability to inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme, implying potential as foods that can help to lower blood pressure. All model cheeses displayed antihypertensive activity, but mainly after 8 wk of aging when they were no longer consumable, whereas the Mexican samples did display some angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory action after minimal aging.

    1984-01-01

    The mineral survey of the Blanco Mountain and Black Canyon Roadless Areas, California indicated that areas of probable and substantiated mineral-resource potential exist only in the Black Canyon Roadless Area. Gold with moderate amounts of lead, silver, zinc, and tungsten, occurs in vein deposits and in tactite. The nature of the geological terrain indicates little likelihood for the occurrence of energy resources in the roadless areas. Detailed geologic mapping might better define the extent of gold mineralization. Detailed stream-sediment sampling and analysis of heavy-mineral concentrations could better define tungsten resource potential.

  2. Some environmental impacts associated with project Rio Blanco

    1976-01-01

    Project Rio Blanco, an experiment involving deep underground detonation of three 30-kiloton nuclear explosives designed to stimulate natural gas flow in geologic formations of low permeability, was conducted in western Colorado on 17 May 1973. Environmental impacts associated with this experiment were divided into three categories: radiation, ground motion, and conventional physical activities. The objective of observations made at Rio Blanco was to qualitatively and, where possible, quantitatively ascertain environmental impacts associated with the project. Observations indicated that ground motion and conventional activities appeared to cause the greatest impacts. Ground motion impacts were most severe within 2.4 km of the emplacement well (EW) and were predominantly associated with steep ravine and stream banks and rocky cliffs. Following the detonation, flow and turbidity had increased in a small stream adjacent to the EW. Animals receiving deleterious impacts were those associated with stream banks, cliffs and burrows. No mortality or injury was observed in any large animals. Based on overall results it appears important to give adequate attention to environmental effects resulting from nuclear fracturing experiments

    We evaluated the suitability of Argentinian Fresco cheese as a food carrier of probiotic cultures. We used cultures of Bifidobacterium bifidum (two strains), Bifidobacterium longum (two strains), Bifidobacterium sp. (one strain), Lactobacillus acidophilus (two strains), and Lactobacillus casei (two strains) in different combinations, as probiotic adjuncts. Probiotic, lactic starter (Lactococcus lactis and Streptococcus thermophilus), and contaminant (coliforms, yeasts, and molds) organisms were counted at 0, 30, and 60 d of refrigerated storage. Furthermore, the acid resistance of probiotic and starter bacteria was determined from hydrochloric solutions (pH 2 and 3) of Fresco cheese. The results showed that nine different combinations of bifidobacteria and L. acidophilus had a satisfactory viability (count decreases in 60 d casei cultures assayed also showed a satisfactory survival (counts decreased casei). On the other hand, the three combinations of bifidobacteria, L. acidophilus, and L. casei tested adapted well to the Fresco cheese environment. When a cheese homogenate at pH 3 was used to partially simulate the acidic conditions in the stomach, the probiotic cultures had an excellent ability to remain viable up to 3 h. At pH 2, the cell viability was more affected; B. bifidum was the most resistant organism. This study showed that the Argentinian Fresco cheese could be used as an adequate carrier of probiotic bacteria.

    Full Text Available In the years 1970-1972, the novelist Juan Goytisolo published several studies and translations on the work of José María Blanco White, which represent a key moment in the recovery of that forgotten writer for the modern Spanish culture. The argument made in this essay is that the consciously identifying strategy applied by Goytisolo on Blanco White, in order to define a Spanish intellectual tradition throughout the centuries, marked by exile and dissent, is in fact a deformation of the figure and thought of the writer from Seville. Blanco White’s reception in Spain, however, has been conditioned by that reading.En torno a los años 1970-1972 el novelista Juan Goytisolo publica varios estudios y traducciones sobre la obra de José María Blanco White, que suponen un momento clave en la recuperación de ese olvidado escritor para la moderna cultura española. La tesis formulada en el presente artículo es que la estrategia conscientemente identificadora que aplica Goytisolo sobre Blanco White, a fin de definir una tradición intelectual española a lo largo de los siglos marcada por el exilio y la disidencia, supone de hecho una deformación de la figura y el pensamiento del escritor sevillano. La recepción de Blanco White en España ha quedado, sin embargo, condicionada por esa lectura.

    Full Text Available A new global albedo climatology for Oxygen A-band cloud retrievals is presented. The climatology is based on MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS Albedomap data and its favourable impact on the derivation of cloud fraction is demonstrated for the FRESCO+ (Fast Retrieval Scheme for Clouds from the Oxygen A-band algorithm. To date, a relatively coarse resolution (1° × 1° surface reflectance dataset from GOME (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment Lambert-equivalent reflectivity (LER is used in FRESCO+. The GOME LER climatology does not account for the usually higher spatial resolution of UV/VIS instruments designed for trace gas remote sensing which introduces several artefacts, e.g. in regions with sharp spectral contrasts like coastlines or over bright surface targets. Therefore, MERIS black-sky albedo (BSA data from the period October 2002 to October 2006 were aggregated to a grid of 0.25° × 0.25° for each month of the year and for different spectral channels. In contrary to other available surface reflectivity datasets, MERIS includes channels at 754 nm and 775 nm which are located close to the spectral windows required for O2 A-band cloud retrievals. The MERIS BSA in the near-infrared compares well to Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS derived BSA with an average difference lower than 1% and a correlation coefficient of 0.98. However, when relating MERIS BSA to GOME LER a distinctly lower correlation (0.80 and enhanced scatter is found. Effective cloud fractions from two exemplary months (January and July 2006 of Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY data were subsequently derived with FRESCO+ and compared to those from the Heidelberg Iterative Cloud Retrieval Utilities (HICRU algorithm. The MERIS climatology generally improves FRESCO+ effective cloud fractions. In particular small cloud fractions are in better agreement with HICRU. This is of importance for atmospheric

    Full Text Available In the almost ruined Augustinian church of San Lorenzo in Pistoia many frescoes are preserved, although in a poor state of conservation. Many of them are arranged in little narrative scenes set around a central standing saint, which is the main character of the hagiographical cycle, as in Vita-Icon panels. This is a common type of decoration in Tuscany during the 14th and 15th centuries, but the frescoes in San Lorenzo show some peculiarities in the disposition of the scenes and in the themes of the representation: for instance the mural painting with Mary and Eve’s stories, or the one dedicated to Saint Catherine, or the gigantic Saint Christopher.

    Full Text Available El nevus blanco esponjoso (NBE es una rara condición autosómica dominante, caracterizada por placas blancas bilaterales en la mucosa, de aspecto esponjoso, blandas a la palpación y que pueden escamarse. Los tratamientos son paliativos; y el uso de antibióticos, en especial la tetraciclina, ha demostrando buenos resultados en su control. Este trabajo presenta tres casos clínicos de una familia afectada por NBE, donde se discuten los posibles diagnósticos diferenciales y conductas terapéuticas indicadas. Un paciente masculino de 52 años de edad acudió a la clínica aquejado de lesiones blancas bilaterales. El paciente notó las lesiones 30 años antes, sin lograr un diagnóstico final de las mismas. Después de la anamnesis y del examen clínico fue realizada una biopsia incisional. La reunión de los datos clínicos e histopatológicos llevó al diagnóstico de NBE. Se le solicitó al paciente que indagase entre sus familiares con respecto a lesiones semejantes. Se detectó que el hijo de 19 años y la hija de 25 eran portadores de placas blancas en la mucosa yugal. Como no había afectación estética, se optó por no intervenir en las lesiones. El nevus blanco esponjoso es una lesión genética que debe ser diferenciada de otras patologías localizadas y sistémicas importantes, que tienen repercusiones serias para el individuo. Como no hay un tratamiento curativo para el NBE, el papel del cirujano dentista es diagnosticar esta lesión, aclarar al paciente sobre la naturaleza benigna y autolimitante del NBE y si fuera necesario desde el punto de vista estético, aplicar diferentes modalidades terapéuticas.The aim of present paper is to introduce three clinical cases from a family affected from nevus spongiosus albus (NSA and also to discuss the possible differential diagnoses as well as the therapeutical behaviors to be adopted.

    The f/8 RC-Cassegrain Focus of the Blanco Telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, hosts two new instruments: COSMOS, a multi-object spectrograph in the visible wavelength range (350 - 1030nm), and ARCoIRIS, a NIR cross-dispersed spectrograph featuring 6 spectral orders spanning 0.8 - 2.45μm. Here we describe a calibration lamp unit designed to deliver the required illumination at the telescope focal plane for both instruments. These requirements are: (1) an f/8 beam of light covering a spot of 92mm diameter (or 10 arcmin) for a wavelength range of 0.35μm through 2.5μm and (2) no saturation of flat-field calibrations for the minimal exposure times permitted by each instrument, and (3) few saturated spectral lines when using the wavelength calibration lamps for the instruments. To meet these requirements this unit contains an adjustable quartz halogen lamp for flat-field calibrations, and one hollow cathode lamp and four penray lamps for wavelength calibrations. The wavelength calibration lamps are selected to provide optimal spectral coverage for the instrument mounted and can be used individually or in sets. The device designed is based on an 8-inch diameter integrating sphere, the output of which is optimized to match the f/8 calibration input delivery system which is a refractive system based on fused-silica lenses. We describe the optical design, the opto-mechanical design, the electronic control and give results of the performance of the system.

  2. Frescoed Vaults: Accuracy Controlled Simplified Methodology for Planar Development of Three-Dimensional Textured Models

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available In the field of documentation and preservation of cultural heritage, there is keen interest in 3D metric viewing and rendering of architecture for both formal appearance and color. On the other hand, operative steps of restoration interventions still require full-scale, 2D metric surface representations. The transition from 3D to 2D representation, with the related geometric transformations, has not yet been fully formalized for planar development of frescoed vaults. Methodologies proposed so far on this subject provide transitioning from point cloud models to ideal mathematical surfaces and projecting textures using software tools. The methodology used for geometry and texture development in the present work does not require any dedicated software. The different processing steps can be individually checked for any error introduced, which can be then quantified. A direct accuracy check of the planar development of the frescoed surface has been carried out by qualified restorers, yielding a result of 3 mm. The proposed methodology, although requiring further studies to improve automation of the different processing steps, allowed extracting 2D drafts fully usable by operators restoring the vault frescoes.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper examines the iconography and style of the fresco-icon on the faüade of the Church of the Transfiguration in Ilyina Street. The fresco is considered to be one of the crucial artworks of Novgorod from the second half of the fourteenth century, and, is probably connected with the work of a southern Slav artist. The possible explanation for the co-existence of the fresco-icon, which was originally part of the decoration of the church's western narthex, and the decoration from 1378, the author of which was Theophanes the Greek, as well as the stylistic and colouristic differences between the fresco-icon and the decoration of the core part of the church, may lie in the circumstances caused by a fire in 1385. Those circumstances led to the renewal of the damaged fresco by artists who appeared in Novgorod during the final decade of the fourteenth century, when Theophanes the Greek had, most likely, already left the city.

    Highlights: • FRESCO is a code for rapid evaluation of the cost of electricity of a fusion power plant. • Parameters of the basic machine and unitary costs of components derived from ITER. • Power production components and plant power balance are extrapolated from PPCS. • A special effort is made in the investigation of the pulsed operation scenarios. • Technical and economical FRESCO results are compared with those of two PPCS models. -- Abstract: FRESCO (Fusion REactor Simplified COsts) is a code based on simplified models of physics, engineering and economical aspects of a TOKAMAK-like pulsed or steady-state fusion power plant. The experience coming from various aspects of ITER design, including selection of materials and operating scenarios, is exploited as much as possible. Energy production and plant power balance, including the recirculation requirements, are derived from two models of the PPCS European study, the helium cooled lithium/lead blanket model reactor (model AB) and the helium cooled ceramic one (model B). A detailed study of the availability of the power plant due, among others, to the replacement of plasma facing components, is also included in the code. The economics of the fusion power plant is evaluated through the levelized cost approach. Costs of the basic components are scaled from the corresponding values of the ITER project, the ARIES studies and SCAN model. The costs of plant auxiliaries, including those of the magnetic and electric systems, tritium plants, instrumentation, buildings and thermal energy storage if any, are recovered from ITER values and from those of other power plants. Finally, the PPCS models AB and B are simulated and the main results are reported in this paper

    Siena's Hospital was created in the 10th or 11th century, and still owns a rich documentation of his history, stored at the city's state Archives the general organization of the Hospital in the 14th century is accurately described in the 1318 statue. Moreover, during the 15th century frescoes representing its activities were commissioned by the Hospital. They decorated the Pellegrinaio, the main room and the infirmary. The comparison of these two sources from different periods enables us to ask ourselves why the hospital felt compelled to issue what could appear as redundant illustration of the hospital activities.

    Full Text Available El objetivo de esta investigación fue la obtención de información acerca de las diferencias sensoriales que impacten en la preferencia de los consumidores de queso tipo “cuajada” elaborado con dos diferentes cuajos comerciales. Se elaboraron ocho formulaciones de queso fresco usando dos diferentes tipos de cuajos comerciales. La caracterización sensorial se realizó mediante el análisis descriptivo cuantitativo. La preferencia fue evaluada mediante un grupo de consumidores (n = 150. Se aplicó la Clasificación Jerárquica Ascendente para la agrupación de consumidores, posteriormente las clases de consumidores fueron visualizados en el espacio de la preferencia a través de la técnica del mapa externo de preferencias y la regresión de Mínimos Cuadrados Parciales. Fueron identificados cuatro clases de consumidores clase 1 (n = 39, clase 2 (n = 50, clase 3 (n = 18 y clase 4 (n = 43. El mapa externo de preferencias reveló que los consumidores de la clase 3 presentaron un punto ideal negativo por una muestra de queso. La regresión de Mínimos Cuadrados Parciales demostró que los atributos color blanco, grumoso en vista, textura granulosa al tacto, suave al tacto y presencia de suero tuvieron un impacto positivo sobre la preferencia de los consumidores de la clase 2, 3 y 4. Sin embargo, tanto el mapa externo de preferencias como la regresión de Mínimos Cuadrados Parciales no pudieron explicar la preferencia de los consumidores de la clase 1. En conclusión la información generada en la presente investigación puede ser importante para la predicción y explicación de las reacciones de preferencia en este tipo de producto, así como para el establecimiento de programas de control de calidad.

    Full Text Available O mel é uma substância que vem sendo utilizada pelo homem como alimento, é um produto natural elaborado pelas abelhas a partir do néctar das flores, possui propriedades nutritivas e terapêuticas. O mel de abelhas é um produto alimentício muito apreciado, porém pode ser facilmente adulterado com a adição de açúcares ou xaropes. Desta forma, é necessário fiscalizar sua qualidade através de análises físico-químicas com a finalidade de conhecer a composição química do mel de abelha comercializado além de contribuir para a identificação de fraudes e mudanças físico-químicas indesejáveis. Este trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar a qualidade físico-química do mel de abelha comercializado no município de Caraúbas – RN e sua adequação quanto aos padrões de identidade e qualidade estipulados pela legislação brasileira. As amostras de mel foram adquiridas no comércio do município de Caraubas – RN, sendo estas transportadas até o laboratório de Tecnologia de Alimentos, da UFERSA e UFCG, onde foram armazenadas para posteriores análises. Foram analisadas 6 amostras de diferentes produtores e marcas sendo os ensaios conduzidos com um numero mínimo de três repetições. No tocante às análises microscópicas, todas as amostras de mel estavam de acordo à legislação em vigor, não apresentando sujidades, fragmentos ou larvas de insetos, os testes bioquímicos demonstraram resultados de acordo com os índices estipulados pela legislação demonstrando uma boa qualidade dos méis analisados dentro dos Padrões de Identidade e Qualidade do mel de abelha, vigentes e estipulados pela legislação brasileira. Sugeri-se, portanto como forma de assegurar à qualidade do mel de abelha comercializado a adoção dos princípios das Boas Práticas Apícolas nas unidades produtoras.

  16. Study of water mass transfer dynamics in frescoes by dielectric spectroscopy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Olmi, R.; Riminesi, C.

    2008-01-01

    The knowledge of moisture content (M C) is essential for determining the state of preservation of various types of hand-work: from building materials such as bricks and concrete, to objects of artistic value, in particular frescoes and mural paintings. In all above, moisture is the primary source of damages, as it affects the durability of porous materials. Dielectric properties of porous materials are strongly affected by the presence of water, suggesting dielectric spectroscopy as a suitable non-invasive diagnostic technique. The development of a quantitative relationship between M C and permittivity requires to investigate the dynamics of water mass transfer in porous media, and to determine its effect on the dielectric properties. In this paper a coupled mass transfer/dielectric problem is introduced and solved numerically, based on a finite element model. Results are compared to experimental dielectric measurements performed on plaster samples by the open coaxial method. The application of the dielectric technique to frescoes monitoring is proposed, showing the results obtained is an on-site study.

    2015-02-01

    In the restoration of the frescoed vaults it is not only important to know the geometric shape of the painted surface, but it is essential to document its chromatic characterization and conservation status. The new techniques of range-based and image-based modelling, each with its limitations and advantages, offer a wide range of methods to obtain the geometric shape. In fact, several studies widely document that laser scanning enable obtaining three-dimensional models with high morphological precision. However, the quality level of the colour obtained with built-in laser scanner cameras is not comparable to that obtained for the shape. It is possible to improve the texture quality by means of a dedicated photographic campaign. This procedure, however, requires to calculate the external orientation of each image identifying the control points on it and on the model through a costly step of post processing. With image-based modelling techniques it is possible to obtain models that maintain the colour quality of the original images, but with variable geometric precision, locally lower than the laser scanning model. This paper presents a methodology that uses the camera external orientation parameters calculated by image based modelling techniques to project the same image on the model obtained from the laser scan. This methodology is tested on an Italian mirror (a schifo) frescoed vault. In the paper the different models, the analysis of precision and the efficiency evaluation of proposed methodology are presented.

    Water diffusion inside masonry is responsible for the majority of the decay phenomena observed in wall paintings and frescos. Thus, the diagnostics of moisture and water content and their monitoring represent a key issue. In order to preserve the integrity of surfaces of artistic interest, investigations by means of non-destructive techniques (NDT) are preferred over others. The aim of this research is to determine methodologies to quantify the moisture content (MC) of frescos by means of the integrated use of two non-invasive techniques, namely fiber optic reflectance spectroscopy (FORS) in the near-IR region and evanescent field dielectrometry (EFD) in the microwave range. The FORS technique has been employed in order to assess the amount of water adsorbed from the surface by means of an analysis of the reflectance spectra in the Vis–NIR (350-2200 nm) range. This technique investigates the electronic and vibrational transitions that are characteristic of each compound and enables their identification. The water content is evaluated on the basis of the 1920 nm and 1450 nm absorption bands. The EFD system consists of a resonant probe connected to a network analyzer. The resonance frequency of the cavity under different moisture-content conditions of frescos is in the 1.0–1.5 GHz range. The device makes it possible to compute, in real time, the MC from a measurement of the transmission coefficient (amplitude versus frequency) through the probe. Fresco mock-ups have been prepared in collaboration with the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in order to recreate most of the possible chromatic shades obtained by mixing iron oxides and hydroxide-based pigments. Measurements were performed by employing both techniques on fresco models after wet-dry cycles obtained by means of poultices with a known water content. The results obtained with these two techniques were compared, and cross relationships between the EFD and FORS data were defined. (paper)

    Annual sampling was conducted at the Rio Blanco, Colorado, site for the Long-Term Hydrologic Monitoring Program May 16-17, 2011, to monitor groundwater and surface water for potential radionuclide contamination. Sampling and analyses were conducted as specified in Sampling and Analysis Plan for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management Sites (LMS/PRO/S04351, continually updated). A duplicate sample was collected from location Johnson Artesian WL. Samples were analyzed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Radiation&Indoor Environments National Laboratory in Las Vegas, Nevada. Samples were analyzed for gamma-emitting radionuclides by high-resolution gamma spectrometry, and for tritium using the conventional method. Tritium was not measured using the enrichment method because the EPA laboratory no longer offers that service. Results of this monitoring at the Rio Blanco site demonstrate that groundwater and surface water outside the boundaries have not been affected by project-related contaminants.

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available The study offers a Neoplatonic reading of certain iconographic elements of Domenico Ghirlandaio’s frescoes in the Tornabuoni Chapel in Florence. It focuses on the nude figure sitting on the steps in the “Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple” as well as the group of four listeners gathered on the right in the “Preaching of St. John the Baptist”. Following an investigation of the relationship between these figures and Marsilio Ficino’s philosophical ideas and the apocryphal gospels the author suggests that the nude represents Saturn and that the four men are Ficino’s famiglia filosofica: Hermes Trismegistus, Moses, Aristotle and Plato. This analysis therefore attempts to show that the decoration not only expresses the political supremacy of the Medicean faction but also conveys Ficino’s ideas about the prisca theologia.

    In this work, the "hi-tech" complex biocleaning and restoration of the 14th-century fresco Triumph of Death (5.6x15.0 m) at the Camposanto Monumental Cemetery (Pisa, Italy) is reported. Since 2000, the restoration based on the biological cleaning of noble medieval frescoes, has been successfully utilized in this site. The novelty of this study is the 2-steps biocleaning process using Pseudomonas stutzeri A29 viable cells, previously applied for recovering other valuable frescoes. In this case, after the fresco detachment from the asbestos-cement support (eternity), both the animal glue and the residues of calcium caseinate were biologically removed respectively from the front and from the back of the fresco in 3 hours as indicated by GC-MS and PY/GC-MS analyses. The data obtained during the monitoring of the bio-restoration process confirmed that the adopted procedure does not leave residual cells on the fresco surfaces as showed by plate count method, ATP determination and also SEM observation. In addition, to avoid the risk of condensation phenomena after the relocation of the restored fresco sections onto the original walls, the use of a new support has been set up together with the design of a control system that allows a continuous monitoring of environmental parameters for prevention and conservation purposes. This large-scale biorestoration work clearly shows and confirms that this biotechnology is highly efficient, safe, non-invasive, risk-free and very competitive compared to the traditional cleaning methods, offering an unusual "resurrection" of the degraded artworks also in very complicated and delicate conditions such as the Triumph of Death fresco, defined for its dimension and artistic importance the 'Pisa's Sistina frescoes'. These findings can be of significant importance for other future new restoration activities and they are crucial for determining preservation strategies in this field.

    We present results from a spectroscopic study of the very low mass members of the Southern open cluster Blanco 1 using the Gemini-N telescope. We obtained intermediate resolution (R ∼ 4400) GMOS spectra for 15 cluster candidate members with I ∼ 14-20 mag, and employed a series of membership criteria-proximity to the cluster's sequence in an I/I - K s color-magnitude diagram (CMD), kinematics agreeing with the cluster systemic motion, magnetic activity as a youth indicator-to classify 10 of these objects as probable cluster members. For these objects, we searched for the presence of the Li I 6708 A feature to identify the lithium depletion boundary (LDB) in Blanco 1. The I/I - K s CMD shows a clear mass segregation in the Li distribution along the cluster sequence; namely, all higher mass stars are found to be Li poor, while lower mass stars are found to be Li rich. The division between Li-poor and Li-rich (i.e., the LDB) in Blanco 1 is found at I = 18.78 ± 0.24 and I - K s = 3.05 ± 0.10. Using current pre-main-sequence evolutionary models, we determine an LDB age of 132 ± 24 Myr. Comparing our derived LDB age to upper-main-sequence isochrone ages for Blanco 1, as well as for other open clusters with identified LDBs, we find good chronometric consistency when using stellar evolution models that incorporate a moderate degree of convective core overshoot.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the time interval in which we can get maximum concentration of essential oil from the peels of Citrus jambhiri Lush and Citrus reticulata Blanco, to determine the composition of peel oils and to evaluate the antioxidant and antimicrobial activity of extracted oils. It was observed that in case of Citrus jambhiri Lush maximum oil yield (I %) was obtained when fruits were immature (during October). As the fruit samples got matured, the oil yield decreased. In December the oil yield decreased to 0.2 %. In case of Citrus reticulata Blanco maximum oil yield (0.189 %) was obtained during the last week of January. Chemical analysis of essential oils showed that limonene was the most abundant compound (86 %-93 %) followed by alpha terpinene (2 %-4.5 %), beta-pinene(1 0/0-2 %) and nerol (0.5 %-1.5 %). The radical scavenging and antioxidant activities of essential oils were determined by DPPH and linoleic acid test. The essential oil of Citrus jambhiri Lush inhibited the oxidation of linoleic acid by 54.98 % and that of Citrus reticulata Blanco inhibited by 49.98 %. Moreover, the essential oils also showed antimicrobial activities against the tested microorganisms. (author)

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management conducted annual sampling at the Rio Blanco, Colorado, Site for the Long-Term Hydrologic Monitoring Program (LTHMP) on May 20–21, 2015. This report documents the analytical results of the Rio Blanco annual monitoring event, the trip report, and the data validation package. The groundwater and surface water monitoring samples were shipped to the GEL Group Inc. laboratories for conventional analysis of tritium and analysis of gamma-emitting radionuclides by high-resolution gamma spectrometry. A subset of water samples collected from wells near the Rio Blanco site was also sent to GEL Group Inc. for enriched tritium analysis. All requested analyses were successfully completed. Samples were collected from a total of four onsite wells, including two that are privately owned. Samples were also collected from two additional private wells at nearby locations and from nine surface water locations. Samples were analyzed for gamma-emitting radionuclides by high-resolution gamma spectrometry, and they were analyzed for tritium using the conventional method with a detection limit on the order of 400 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). Four locations (one well and three surface locations) were analyzed using the enriched tritium method, which has a detection limit on the order of 3 pCi/L. The enriched locations included the well at the Brennan Windmill and surface locations at CER-1, CER-4, and Fawn Creek 500 feet upstream.

    This report presents the geologic framework, hydro­stratigraphy, and ichnology of the Trinity and Edwards Groups in the Blanco, Payton, and Rough Hollow 7.5-minute quad­rangles in Blanco, Comal, Hays, and Kendall Counties, Texas. Rocks exposed in the study area are of the Lower Cretaceous Trinity Group and lower part of the Fort Terrett Formation of the Lower Cretaceous Edwards Group. The mapped units in the study area are the Hammett Shale, Cow Creek Limestone, Hensell Sand, and Glen Rose Limestone of the Trinity Group and the lower portion of the Fort Terrett Formation of the Edwards Group. The Glen Rose Limestone is composed of the Lower and Upper Members. These Trinity Group rocks con­tain the upper and middle Trinity aquifers. The only remaining outcrops of the Edwards Group are the basal nodular member of the Fort Terrett Formation, which caps several hills in the northern portion of the study area. These rocks were deposited in an open marine to supratidal flats environment. The faulting and fracturing in the study area are part of the Balcones fault zone, an extensional system of faults that generally trends southwest to northeast in south-central Texas.The hydrostratigraphic units of the Edwards and Trinity aquifers were mapped and described using a classification system based on fabric-selective or not-fabric-selective poros­ity types. The only hydrostratigraphic unit of the Edwards aquifer present in the study area is hydrostratigraphic unit VIII. The mapped hydrostratigraphic units of the upper Trinity aquifer are (from top to bottom) the Camp Bullis, upper evaporite, fossiliferous, and lower evaporite which are interval equivalent to the Upper Member of the Glen Rose Limestone. The middle Trinity aquifer encompasses (from top to bottom) the Lower Member of the Glen Rose Limestone, the Hensell Sand Member, and the Cow Creek Limestone Member of the Pearsall Formation.

    Full Text Available Considerando a crescente importância que o iogurte vem assumindo no mercado nacional, inúmeras pesquisas têm sido executadas para melhoria da sua qualidade e outros produtos fermentados. A presença de contaminantes constitui, hoje, um dos grandes problemas para a indústria, causando a perda do produto em função das alterações de sabor, cor e também estufamento de embalagens nas prateleiras refrigeradas de comercialização. O principal objetivo deste trabalho foi realizar levantamento das características microbiológicas dos iogurtes, por meio da enumeração de fungos e leveduras encontrados, relacionando-os com a vida-de-prateleira do iogurte de diferentes marcas. Setenta e duas amostras de iogurtes comercializados foram submetidos à análise microbiológica da população de Lactobacillus/Streptococcus, contagem de leveduras e fungos e análises químicas (pH, % ácido láctico. Os iogurtes foram produzidos por 4 produtores diferentes e comercializados de Lavras - MG, Brasil. Lactobacillus delbrueckii spp. bulgaricus e Streptococcus thermophilus foram encontrados na proporção de 1:2, respectivamente, em 80% das amostras analisadas. Não foi encontrada diferença significativa no valor de pH e na concentração de ácido láctico nas amostras. Em 28% das amostras foi encontrada população de leveduras acima de 100 UFC/g, enquanto em 7% foram obtidas contagens de leveduras maiores que 1000 UFC/g. Os resultados indicam que, apesar de todas as inovações técnicas e cuidados durante e depois da fabricação do iogurte, o produto ainda pode estar sujeito à contaminação microbiana, quando não atendidas às condições de higiene e sanidade.

    High-pressure homogenization (HPH) of milk was studied as an alternative processing operation in the manufacturing of queso fresco cheese. Raw and pasteurized (65°C for 30 min) milks were subjected to HPH at 0, 100, 200, and 300 MPa and then used to manufacture queso fresco. The cheeses were evaluated for yield, moisture content, titratable acidity, nitrogen content, whey protein content, yield force, yield strain, and tactile texture by instrumental or trained panel analyses. The combination of HPH and thermal processing of milk resulted in cheeses with increased yield and moisture content. The net amount of protein transferred to the cheese per kilogram of milk remained constant for all treatments except raw milk processed at 300 MPa. The highest cheese yield, moisture content, and crumbliness were obtained for thermally processed milk subjected to HPH at 300 MPa. The principal component analysis of all measured variables showed that the variables yield, moisture content, and crumbliness were strongly correlated to each other and negatively correlated to the variables yield strain, protein content (wet basis), and sensory cohesiveness. It is suggested that the combination of thermal processing and HPH promotes thermally induced denaturation of whey protein, together with homogenization-induced dissociation of casein micelles. The combined effect results in queso fresco containing a thin casein-whey matrix that is able to better retain sweet whey. These results indicate that HPH has a strong potential for the manufacture of queso fresco with excellent yield and textural properties. Copyright © 2011 American Dairy Science Association.

    Full Text Available The last restoration of Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel was directed and conducted by the internal staff of the Vatican Museums, in the period from June 1980 to April 1994. The historical importance of this restoration is found in the recovery of the unexpected chromatic tones used by Michelangelo and hidden for centuries by the dust, black smoke and grease produced by candles and braziers, and by the animal glue, gum resin and ox bile used by restorers in the past to revive the colors. The important result was obtained without any risk, thanks to developments in the field of methods and materials, the progress made in diagnostics, and the elaboration of a theory of restoration (Brandi C. 1950 which still acts as a support to the scientific and technical guidelines used in restoration today. The good preservation of the frescoes in the Chapel is entrusted to a filter and air conditioning system which was renewed and upgraded in 2015, and to modern LED lighting installed in the same year. The cleaning of the frescoes, which were almost perfectly preserved thanks to Michelangelo’s technique, allowed us to study the artist’s painting technique and to learn that some of the techniques he employed in marble sculpting were applied to his painting, and that he introduced novel methods, such as the technique used to give three-dimensionality to figures or his particular brushstrokes, which anticipated divisionism and pointillism.

    Full Text Available Pese a la existencia de varios estudios sobre diversos aspectos de los quesos de vaca y cabra, hay una escasa información sobre sus propiedades texturales. El estudio de las propiedades reológicas en los quesos es importante porque determina el cuerpo y textura característicos. La presente investigación se realizó con el fin de comparar el perfil de textura de los quesos frescos pasteurizados elaborados a partir de leche de cabra y de vaca y con contenidos de grasa de 30, 50 y 70%; los cuales fueron almacenados en refrigeración a 4°C y analizados los días 1, 6, 12, y 18 respectivamente. Los parámetros texturales de dureza, adhesividad, cohesividad, elasticidad, gomosidad y masticabilidad, se determinaron utilizando un texturómetro EZ-TEST SERIES S. Se concluye que los valores de dureza y adhesividad aumentaron durante el tiempo de almacenamiento, contrario a la elasticidad y cohesividad. Además, el aumento del contenido graso influye en el incremento de estos parámetros a excepción de la dureza. Así mismo, la gomosidad y masticabilidad varían con respecto a la dureza, cohesividad y elasticidad. Los quesos frescos de cabra presentaron mayor adhesividad, cohesividad y elasticidad, con respecto a los quesos frescos de vaca, en los cuales los valores de dureza fueron mayores.

    Context: The nearby open cluster Blanco 1 is of considerable astrophysical interest for formation and evolution studies of open clusters because it is the third highest Galactic latitude cluster known. It has been observed often, but so far no definitive and comprehensive membership determination is readily available. Aims: An observing programme was carried out to study the stellar population of Blanco 1, and especially the membership and binary frequency of the F5-K0 dwarfs. Methods: We obtained radial-velocities with the CORAVEL spectrograph in the field of Blanco 1 for a sample of 148 F-G-K candidate stars in the magnitude range 10 rate reaches 40% (27/68) if one includes the photometric binaries. The cluster mean heliocentric radial velocity is +5.53 ± 0.11 km s-1 based on the most reliable 49 members. The V sin i distribution is similar to that of the Pleiades, confirming the age similarities between the two clusters. Conclusions: This study clearly demonstrates that, in spite of the cluster's high Galactic latitude, three membership criteria - radial velocity, proper motion, and photometry - are necessary for performing a reliable membership selection. Furthermore, even with accurate and extensive data, ambiguous cases still remain.

    Recently, traditional Mexican Fresco-style cheese production has been increasing, and the volume of cheese whey generated represents a problem. In this study, we investigated the chemical composition of Fresco-style cheese wheys and their potential as a source of protein fractions with antioxidant and angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitory activities. Three samples from Fresco, Panela, and Ranchero cheeses whey were physicochemically characterized. Water-soluble extracts were fractionated to obtain whey fractions with different molecular weights: 10-5, 5-3, 3-1 and wheys. All whey fractions had antioxidant and ACE-inhibitory activities. The 10-5 kDa whey fraction of Ranchero cheese had the highest Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (0.62 ± 0.00 mM), and the 3-1 kDa Panela and Fresco cheese whey fractions showed the highest ACE-inhibitory activity (0.57 ± 0.02 and 0.59 ± 0.04 μg/mL 50%-inhibitory concentration values, respectively). These results suggest that Fresco-style cheese wheys may be a source of protein fractions with bioactivity, and thus could be useful ingredients in the manufacture of functional foods with increased nutritional value.

    A team from the Remote Sensing Laboratory in Las Vegas, Nevada, conducted an aerial radiation survey of the area surrounding ground zero of Project Rio Blanco in the northwestern section of Colorado in June 1993. The object of the survey was to determine if there were man-made radioisotopes on or near the surface resulting from a nuclear explosion in 1972. No indications of surface contamination were found. A search for the cesium-137 radioisotope was negative. The Minimum Detectable Activity for cesium-137 is presented for several detection probabilities. The natural terrestrial exposure rates in units of Roentgens per hour were mapped and are presented in the form of a contour map over-laid on an aerial photograph. A second team made independent ground-based measurements in four places within the survey area. The average agreement of the ground-based with aerial measurements was six percent

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available The relationship between myth and gaze is particularly paradoxical in the theatre, and has been so since the time of Ancient Greek theatre to the present. After all, it pertains, on the one hand, to the most substantial trait of this mode of imitation (Aristotle, which is directly linked to the stage, whereas the second means, narrative, is always mediated by a voice (the narrator or a gaze (the eye of the camera; and yet on the other hand the theatre is, even etymologically, a theatre par excellence: the fictive world is placed before the eyes of the spectator in a direct and effective manner. Since the gaze is of paramount importance to the very heart of the myth of Oedipus (from that of his parents, Laius and Jocasta, to the first-born, to the enemy-assassin, and finally to the saviour-king-spouse, and up to the unbearable one of anagnorisis, from which the only solution is blindness, in Greek tragedy, and its summit of Oedipus Rex, the impossible gaze finds substitutes in that of the choir and that of the playwright. On these bases, this paper examines the views of Oedipus which are intertwined in one of its most  recent scenic avatars, namely,  in Sergio Blanco's Tebas  Land (2013, where the protagonist, called à la Kafka “S”, encompasses at the same time the functions of the playwright and of the chorus in a perverse meta-theatrical play, while also embodying the various historical interpretations and views of the myth that exist between Sophocles and Blanco, especially that of Sigmund Freud, the third vertex of the hermeneutical triangle, or the third eye of “S”.

  16. XRF analyses for the study of painting technique and degradation on frescoes by Beato Angelico: first results

    Mazzinghi, A.

    2014-01-01

    Beato Angelico is one of the most important Italian painters of the Renaissance period, in particular he was a master of the so-called 'Buon fresco' technique for mural paintings. A wide diagnostic campaign with X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyses has been carried out on three masterworks painted by Beato Angelico in the San Marco monastery in Florence: the Crocifissione con Santi, the 'Annunciazione' and the 'Madonna delle Ombre'. The latter is painted by mixing fresco and secco techniques, which makes it of particular interest for the study of two different paintings techniques of the same artist. Then the aim of the study was focused on the characterization of the painting palette, and therefore the painting techniques, used by Beato Angelico. Moreover, the conservators were interested in the study of degradation processes and old restoration treatments. Our analyses have been carried out by means of the XRF spectrometer developed at LABEC laboratory at Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare in Florence (Italy). XRF is indeed especially suited for such a kind of study, allowing for multi-elemental, nondestructive, non-invasive analyses in a short time, with portable instruments. In this paper the first results concerning the XRF analysis are presented.

    Imaging methods offer several advantages in the field of conservation allowing to perform non-invasive inspection of works of art. In particular, non-invasive techniques based on imaging in different infrared (IR) regions are widely used for the investigation of paintings. Using radiation beyond the visible range, different characteristics of the inspected artwork may be revealed according to the bandwidth acquired. In this paper we present the recent results of a joint project among the two research institutes DIMEG and CNR-INO, and the restoration facility Opificio delle Pietre Dure, concerning the wide-band integration of IR imaging techniques, in the spectral ranges NIR 0.8-2.5 μm, MIR 3-5 μm, and FIR 8-12 μm, for in situ analysis of artworks. A joint, multi-mode use of reflection and thermal bands is proposed for the diagnostics of mural paintings, and it is demonstrated to be an effective tool in inspecting the layered structure. High resolution IR reflectography and, to a greater extent, IR imaging in the 3-5 μm band, are effectively used to characterize the superficial layer of the fresco and to analyze the stratigraphy of different pictorial layers. IR thermography in the 8-12 μm band is used to characterize the support deep structure. The integration of all the data provides a multi- layered and multi-spectral representation of the fresco that yields a comprehensive analysis.

    Milk and Queso Blanco cheese were exposed to irradiation with doses of 1, 2, 3, 5, and 10 kGy to investigate the irradiation effect on α- and β-casein using a capillary electrophoresis. α S1 -Casein to total protein ratio in raw milk was decreased from 19.63% to 8.64% by 10 kGy of gamma irradiation. The ratio of α S1 - to α S0 -casein was also decreased from 1.38 to 0.53, which showed α S1 -casein is more susceptible to gamma irradiation than α S0 -casein. Similarly, α S1 -casein to total protein ratio in Queso Blanco cheese was decreased from 17.48% to 7.82% and the ratio of α S1 - to α S0 -casein was decreased from 1.16 to 0.43 by 10 kGy of gamma irradiation. Dose-dependent reduction of β A1 -casein was also found. β A1 -Casein to total protein ratios in raw milk and Queso Blanco cheese were decreased from 22.00% to 14.16% and from 21.96% to 13.89% after 10 kGy, respectively. The ratios of β A1 - to β A2 -casein were from 1.10 to 0.64 and 0.93 to 0.57 in milk and Queso Blanco cheese, respectively. However, α S0 -, β B -, and β A3 -casein increased by irradiation at 10 kGy. The results suggest that α S1 -casein and β A1 -casein were more susceptible to gamma irradiation, and may be related to the reduction of milk allergenicity caused by gamma irradiation

    Seedlessness is an excellent economical trait, and self-incompatibility (SI) is one of important factors resulting in seedless fruit in Citrus. However, SI molecular mechanism in Citrus is still unclear. In this study, RNA-Seq technology was used to identify differentially expressed genes related to SI reaction of 'Wuzishatangju' (Citrus reticulata Blanco). A total of 35.67GB raw RNA-Seq data was generated and was de novo assembled into 50,364 unigenes with an average length of 897bp and N50 value of 1549. Twenty-three candidate unigenes related to SI were analyzed using qPCR at different tissues and stages after self- and cross-pollination. Seven pollen S genes (Unigene0050323, Unigene0001060, Unigene0004230, Unigene0004222, Unigene0012037, Unigene0048889 and Unigene0004272), three pistil S genes (Unigene0019191, Unigene0040115, Unigene0036542) and three genes (Unigene0038751, Unigene0031435 and Unigene0029897) associated with the pathway of ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis were identified. Unigene0031435, Unigene0038751 and Unigene0029897 are probably involved in SI reaction of 'Wuzishatangju' based on expression analyses. The present study provides a new insight into the molecular mechanism of SI in Citrus at the transcriptional level. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The RIO BLANCO event presented the opportunity to monitor, under controlled conditions in the field, the increase in pore pressures resulting from ground motion similar to an earthquake. In situ measurements of pore pressure changes were made by Sandia Laboratories and Dames and Moore. This report contains the results of laboratory tests believed to be indicative in assessing the magnitude of pore pressure increases and probability of soil liquefaction. These include triaxial load tests, gradation of grain size, and relative density. No liquefaction was observed in the field, and the increase of in situ pore pressures were much less than expected from laboratory measurements. Allied subjects presented in this report are pore pressure propagation and dissipation profiles, the previously unpublished pore pressure measurements made by Dames and Moore, and the boring logs for the various sites where measurements were taken. It is concluded that methods used to predict pore pressure increases and liquefaction potential are overly conservative, at least for these alluvial and colluvial soils found in Colorado

    Influenza is historically an ancient disease that causes annual epidemics and, at irregular intervals, pandemics. At present, the first-line drugs (oseltamivir and zanamivir) don't seem to be optimistic due to the spontaneously arising and spreading of oseltamivir resistance among influenza virus. Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. (P. cablin) is an important traditional Chinese medicine herb that has been widely used for treatment on common cold, nausea and fever. In our previous study, we have identified an extract derived from P. cablin as a novel selective neuraminidase (NA) inhibitor. A series of polyphenolic compounds were isolated from P. cablin for their potential ability to inhibit neuraminidase of influenza A virus. Two new octaketides (1, 2), together with other twenty compounds were isolated from P. cablin. These compounds showed better inhibitory activity against NA. The significant potent compounds of this series were compounds 2 (IC50 = 3.87 ± 0.19 μ mol/ml), 11, 12, 14, 15, 19 and 20 (IC50 was in 2.12 to 3.87 μ mol/ml), which were about fourfold to doubled less potent than zanamivir and could be used to design novel influenza NA inhibitors, especially compound 2, that exhibit increased activity based on these compounds. With the help of molecular docking, we had a preliminary understanding of the mechanism of the two new compounds (1-2)' NA inhibitory activity. Fractions 6 and polyphenolic compounds isolated from fractions 6 showed higher NA inhibition than that of the initial plant exacts. The findings of this study indicate that polyphenolic compounds and fractions 6 derived from P. cablin are potential NA inhibitors. This work is one of the evidence that P. cablin has better inhibitory activity against influenza, which not only enriches the compound library of P. cablin, but also facilitates further development and promises its therapeutic potential for the rising challenge of influenza diseases.

  14. Assessment of hydrologic transport of radionuclides from the Rio Blanco underground nuclear test site, Colorado

    DOE is operating an environmental restoration program to characterize, remediate, and close non-Nevada Test Site locations used for nuclear testing. Evaluation of radionuclide transport by groundwater is part of preliminary risk analysis. These evaluations allow prioritization of test areas in terms of risk, provide a basis for discussions with regulators and the public about future work, and provide a framework for assessing site characterization data needs. The Rio Blanco site in Colorado was the location of the simultaneous detonation of three 30-kiloton nuclear devices. The devices were located 1780, 1899, and 2039 below ground surface in the Fort Union and Mesaverde formations. Although all the bedrock formations at the site are thought to contain water, those below the Green River Formation (below 1000 in depth) are also gas-bearing, and have very low permeabilities. The transport scenario evaluated was the migration of radionuclides from the blast-created cavity through the Fort Union Formation. Transport calculations were performed using the solute flux method, with input based on the limited data available for the site. Model results suggest that radionuclides from the test are contained entirely within the area currently administered by DOE. This modeling was performed to investigate how the uncertainty in various physical parameters affect radionuclide transport at the site, and to serve as a starting point for discussion regarding further investigation; it was not intended to be a definitive simulation of migration pathways or radionuclide concentration values. Given the sparse data, the modeling results may differ significantly from reality. Confidence in transport predictions can be increased by obtaining more site data, including the amount of radionuclides which would have been available for transport (i.e., not trapped in melt glass or vented during gas flow testing), and the hydraulic properties of the formation. 38 refs., 6 figs., 1 tab

    We describe the performance of a microclimate monitoring system that was implemented for the preventive conservation of the Renaissance frescoes in the apse vault of the Cathedral of Valencia, that were restored in 2006. This system comprises 29 relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensors: 10 of them inserted into the plaster layer supporting the fresco paintings, 10 sensors in the walls close to the frescoes and nine sensors measuring the indoor microclimate at different points of the vault. Principal component analysis was applied to RH data recorded in 2007. The analysis was repeated with data collected in 2008 and 2010. The resulting loading plots revealed that the similarities and dissimilarities among sensors were approximately maintained along the three years. A physical interpretation was provided for the first and second principal components. Interestingly, sensors recording the highest RH values correspond to zones where humidity problems are causing formation of efflorescence. Recorded data of RH and temperature are discussed according to Italian Standard UNI 10829 (1999). PMID:22164100

    A Tiburon ROV dive within the East Blanco Depression (EBD) increased the mapped extent of a known hydrothermal field by an order of magnitude. In addition, a unique opal-CT (cristobalite-tridymite)-hematite mound was discovered, and mineralized sediments and rock were collected and analyzed. Silica-hematite mounds have not previously been found on the deep ocean floor. The light-weight rock of the porous mound consists predominantly of opal-CT and hematite filaments, rods, and strands, and averages 77.8% SiO2 and 11.8% Fe2O3. The hematite and opal-CT precipitated from a low-temperature (???115?? C), strongly oxidized, silica- and iron-rich, sulfur-poor hydrothermal fluid; a bacterial mat provided the framework for precipitation. Samples collected from a volcaniclastic rock outcrop consist primarily of quartz with lesser plagioclase, smectite, pyroxene, and sulfides; SiO2 content averages 72.5%. Formation of these quartz-rich samples is best explained by cooling in an up-flow zone of silica-rich hydrothermal fluids within a low permeability system. Opal-A, opal-CT, and quartz mineralization found in different places within the EBD hydrothermal field likely reflects decreasing silica saturation and increasing temperature of the mineralizing fluid with increasing silica crystallinity. Six push cores recovered gravel, coarse sand, and mud mineralized variously by Fe or Mn oxides, silica, and sulfides. Total rare-earth element concentrations are low for both the rock and push core samples. Ce and Eu anomalies reflect high and low temperature hydrothermal components and detrital phases. A remarkable variety of types of mineralization occur within the EBD field, yet a consistent suite of elements is enriched (relative to basalt and unmineralized cores) in all samples analyzed: Ag, Au, S, Mo, Hg, As, Sb, Sr, and U; most samples are also enriched in Cu, Pb, Cd, and Zn. On the basis of these element enrichments, the EBD hydrothermal field might best be described as a base

    Laser-induced fluorescence is widely applied in several fields as a diagnostic tool to characterise organic and inorganic materials and could be also exploited for non-invasive remote investigation of wall paintings using the fluorescence lidar technique. The latter relies on the use of a low-fluence pulsed UV laser and a telescope to carry out remote spectroscopy on a given target. A first step to investigate the applicability of this technique is to assess the effects of low-fluence laser radiation on wall paintings. This paper presents a study devoted to investigate the effects of pulsed UV laser radiation on a set of fresco model samples prepared using different pigments. To irradiate the samples we used a tripled-frequency Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (emission wavelength: 355 nm; pulse width: 5 ns). We varied the laser fluence from 0.1 mJ/cm{sup 2} to 1 mJ/cm{sup 2} and the number of laser pulses from 1 to 500 shots. We characterised the investigated materials using several diagnostic and analytical techniques (colorimetry, optical microscopy, fibre optical reflectance spectroscopy and ATR-FT-IR microscopy) to compare the surface texture and their composition before and after laser irradiation. Results open good prospects for a non-invasive investigation of wall paintings using the fluorescence lidar technique.

    The U.S. Department of Energy and its predecessor agencies conducted a program in the 1960s and 1970s that evaluated technology for the nuclear stimulation of low-permeability gas reservoirs. The third and final project in the program, Project Rio Blanco, was conducted in Rio Blanco County, in northwestern Colorado. In this experiment, three 33-kiloton nuclear explosives were simultaneously detonated in a single emplacement well in the Mesaverde Group and Fort Union Formation, at depths of 1,780, 1,899, and 2,039 m below land surface on May 17, 1973. The objective of this work is to estimate lateral distances that tritium released from the detonations may have traveled in the subsurface and evaluate the possible effect of postulated natural-gas development on radionuclide migration. Other radionuclides were considered in the analysis, but the majority occur in relatively immobile forms (such as nuclear melt glass). Of the radionuclides present in the gas phase, tritium dominates in terms of quantity of radioactivity in the long term and contribution to possible whole body exposure. One simulation is performed for {sup 85}Kr, the second most abundant gaseous radionuclide produced after tritium.

    Full Text Available Development banks are key actors in climate finance. During the last decades, they have increased the funding of climate change related projects, especially those under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM. Defined in Article 12 of the Kyoto Protocol, the CDM aims at contributing to climate change mitigation while assisting in achieving sustainable development. However, many CDM projects have caused environmental damage and human rights abuses that especially affect the most vulnerable people. Located in Panama, the Barro Blanco hydro-power dam exemplifies the complex interrelationship of climate financing, development policies, the political and economic national context and human rights. Through the analysis of the role of development banks in climate finance, especially in the context of CDM projects, this paper aims (1 to clarify the role of development banks in climate finance, (2 to shed light on the vulnerable situation of the people affected by these projects, (3 to highlight the gaps in both the CDM rules and the development banks’ safeguard policies concerning the protection of human rights and the prevention of environmental abuses, and (4 to give a current example of this complex situation through the Barro Blanco case study. This paper argues that the manifold and often competing national and international legal and political layers of climate change mitigation projects repeatedly leave project affected people vulnerable to human rights violations without adequate safeguards and mechanisms to effectively articulate their interests, protect their rights and promote access to justice.

    Full Text Available Nos últimos anos, a oferta de pulverizadores autopropelidos no mercado brasileiro aumentou, principalmente para suprir a demanda de agricultores que possuem grandes extensões de áreas, nas quais se requer um alto ritmo operacional. Neste trabalho, foram avaliados, em função da potência nominal do motor, os diferentes tipos de transmissões, a capacidade do reservatório de calda, tamanho das barras e vão livre, considerados critérios técnicos importantes para a seleção dessas máquinas. Para tanto, utilizaram-se informações técnicas de 41 modelos de pulverizadores autopropelidos comercializados no mercado brasileiro. Como resultado, classificaram-se os pulverizadores em cinco classes, segundo a potência do motor. Verificou-se que, com o aumento da potência, os pulverizadores são equipados com transmissão hidrostática e a capacidade dos reservatórios de calda são maiores.

La metodología se basó en el uso de las hormonas de enraizamiento ácido naftalenacético (ANA y ácido indolbutírico (AIB, en concentraciones de 0, 1,500 y 2,000 mg kg-1 en sustratos turba y arena. Las yemas apicales fueron colocadas en una cámara húmeda en condiciones de invernadero. Se aplicó un Diseño Completamente al Azar (DCA en un arreglo factorial 2 sustratos x 3 dosis de hormona ANA x 3 dosis de hormona AIB, con cuatro repeticiones y cuatro unidades de observación. A los 45 días se evaluó el porcentaje de sobrevivencia y el enraizamiento, el número de raíces, la longitud de la raíz mayor, el número de brotes, la longitud de brotes, y el vigor. Los resultados no mostraron diferencias significativas entre los distintos tratamientos para todas las variables, sin embargo para el efecto simple e interacciones se observó diferencias para las variables evaluadas, siendo el mejor sustrato turba y las concentraciones óptimas de auxinas de 0 a 1,500 mg Kg-1. Se concluye que el guayacán blanco es una especie de fácil enraizamiento, ya que con y sin la aplicación de hormonas enraizadoras en el sustrato turba y arena se logró la obtención de clones, disminuyendo el tiempo de obtención de nuevas plantas.

  13. Archbishop Danilo I: The donor of the frescoes in the prothesis of the Church of the Holy Apostles in Peć

    Full Text Available The frescoes in the prothesis of the Church of the Holy Apostles in the Patriarchate of Peć in Kosovo, date from around 1260. They are in poor condition and little has been written about them. Only the portraits of the Serbian hierarchs and saints in the apsis, Sava and Arsenije, have drawn attention, chiefly because the image of the second Serbian archbishop Arsenije - is believed to have been painted during his lifetime. The scenes of the prophet Daniel and the composition The Penitence of King David, are considered to have been painted for their symbolic meaning, primarily regarding to the Holy Communion. Among the compositions, one can see that besides The David rebuked by Nathan, all of them are linked with the life and visions of the prophet Daniel [Daniel in the Lions' Den, The Prophet's Vision of the Kingdom of Heaven (Daniel 7, 1-28. The Archangel Gabriel Foretells Future Events to the Prophet Daniel (Daniel 8, 3; 8, 16-27 and perhaps, The Three Youths in the Fiery Furnace. The small, painted area in the interior (2 *3.70 meters, mostly with scenes devoted to the prophet Daniel, clearly indicates that the prothesis was dedicated to this Old Testament character. In Byzantine churches, the lateral sections of the altar area, the prothesis and the diakonikon - like the parecclesion - were dedicated to the Mother of God and the saints, in most cases, St. Nikolas and St. John the Forerunner. The choice of the prophet Daniel, as the patron of the Peć prothesis was quite unusual. This was obviously done according to the wishes of the Serbian archbishop, Danilo, who thereby wished to pay tribute to his Old Testament namesake. There are several instances in medieval times when Serbian donors dedicated churches to the saints, who were their namesakes. The donor ship of archbishop Danilo 1 also determines mi-date when the frescoes in the prothesis came into being. As he administered the Serbian church for a brief period of less than two years

    In present study, novel magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers for hesperetin were successfully prepared by surface molecular imprinting method using functionalized Fe 3 O 4 particles as the magnetic cores. Hesperetin as the template, N-Isopropylacrylamide as the functional monomer, ethylene glycol dimethyl acrylate as the crosslinker, 2,2-azobisisobutyonnitrile as initiator and acetonitrile-methanol (3:1, v/v) as the porogen were applied in the preparation process. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscope, x-ray diffraction and vibrating sample magnetometry were applied to characterize the magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers. The adsorption experiments indicated that the magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers performed high selective recognition property to hesperetin. The selectivity experiment indicated that the adsorption capacity and selectivity of polymers to hesperetin was higher than that of luteolin, baicalein and ombuin. Furthermore, the magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers were employed as adsorbents for extraction and enrichment of hesperetin from the dried pericarp of Citrus reticulata Blanco. The recoveries of hesperetin in the dried pericarp of Citrus reticulata Blanco ranged from 90.5% to 96.9%. The linear range of 0.15-110.72 µg/mL was obtained with correlation coefficient of greater than 0.9991. The limit of detection and quantification of the proposed method was 0.06 µg/mL and 0.15 µg/mL, respectively. Based on three replicate measurements, intra-day RSD was 0.71% and inter-day RSD was 2.31%. These results demonstrated that the prepared magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers were proven to be an effective material for the selective adsorption and enrichment of hesperetin from natural medicines, fruits and et al.

    Preliminary results of a research carried out at the Complejo Rio Blanco de Ullum, San Juan. Argentina are summarized in the present paper. These studies are focused on geological and metallogenic features o f this unit. The study area is located 20 km. WNW of San Juan city with geographic coordinates of 31grades 30' South latitude and 68 grades 52' West longitude. The older rocks aotcroping in the area correspond to limestones of Ordovician San Juan Formation, the chronologic succession continues with sales and siltstones of Silurian Tambolar Formation, pelites and subgraywackes of Devonian Punta Negra Formation and finally a 1500 m thick package of piroclastics and sediments of Albarracin Formation of Tertiary age. Albarracin Formation is composed pf a Basal Member (sandstones and stilstones), a Tuffaceous Member (tuffs, tuffites and oligomictic breccia s with conglomerate interbed dings in the upper part) and a Conglomeratic Member (polimictic para conglomerates). According to piroclastics facies, relationships and spreading area of piroclastics deposits a c olapsed dome and avalanche model is proposed to be the main process for the piroclastics package outcropping in the area.Sedimentary and piroclastics rocks are intruded by five sub volcanic units as noted by Leveratto (1968) which are composed by different lithologies such as: Altered Da cite - Rhyolite, Ullum Da cite, Cerro Blanco de Zonda Andesite, Ullum Andesite and Hybrid Andesite.Detailed work on alteration assemblages and metallogenic features in the southwestern sector of the Complejo resulted in the identification of three alteration zones with characteric features of potassic, argillic and propyllitic signature.

    The modular computer code FRESCO has been developed to describe the mechanism of fission product release from a HTGR-Core under accident conditions. By changing some program modules it has been extended to take into account the transport phenomena (i.e. recoil) too, which only occur under reactor operating conditions and during the irradiation experiments. For this report, the release of cesium and strontium from three HTGR-fuel elements has been evaluated and compared with the experimental data. The results show that the measured release can be described by the considered models. (orig.) [de

    Wood in riverine environments exerts different functions on ecological and geomorphic settings, influencing morphological processes, and increasing risks for sensitive structures. Large wood (LW) is defined as wood material, dead or alive, larger than 10 cm in diameter and 1 m in length. Natural hazards can strongly increase the presence of LW in waterways and flood events can transport it affecting the ecosystem and landscape. This study aims to increase the knowledge of wood budget, considering the effects of two subsequent slight flood events along a sub-reach of the Rio Blanco gravel bed river , in Chilean Patagonia, strongly affected by the eruption of Chaiten volcano in 2008. The volcanic eruption affected almost 3,5 km 2 of evergreen forest on the southern (left) bank, because of primary direct effects from pyroclastic density currents and lahar-floods that caused deposition up to 8 m of reworked tephra, alluvium, and wood on floodplains and terrace along the Rio Blanco. After the eruption, there was a considerable increase of LW into the main channel: into the bankfull channel, volume exceeds 100 m 3 /ha. Field surveys were carried out in January and March 2015, before and after two slight flood events (Recurrence Intervals lower than 1 year). The pre-event phase permitted to detect and analyze the presence of LW into the study area, along a 80 m-long reach of Rio Blanco (7500 m 2 . Every LW element was manually measured and described, a numbered metal tag was installed, and the position was recorded by GPS device. In January, there was a total amount of 113 m 3 /ha, 90% accumulated in LW jams (WJ) and 10% as single logs. The LW was characterized by mean dimensions of 3,36 m height, 0,25 m diameter and 0,26 m 3 volume, respectively. The WJ are characterized by wide range of dimension: volume varies from 0,28 m 3 to 672 m 3 , length from 1,20 m to 56 m, width from 0,40 m to 8,70 m and height from 0,20 m to 3 m, respectively.

    , realizadas en 1997. Este es uno de los pocos sitios conocidos con arquitectura monumental pública asignada a las fases iniciales del Período Intermedio Temprano y relacionada con la tradición cerámica Blanco sobre Rojo. Nuestro interés principal fue refinar la cronología del Blanco sobre Rojo en el valle bajo de Chancay mediante información estratigráfica y compararla con otros esquemas cronológicos para la costa central. Como resultado, definimos una secuencia arquitectónica de seis fases que implicaban cambios funcionales. Las tres primeras fases son de uso doméstico, con alto contenido de restos culturales. Las fases siguientes se caracterizan por la construcción de grandes muros para plataformas hechos de adobe plano-convexo. Respecto a la cerámica, tenemos una secuencia de cuatro fases netamente Blanco sobre Rojo, que guardan íntima relación con el desarrollo arquitectónico. Esta cronología puede ser correlacionada con la de Miramar, propuesta por Patterson (1961-1966. Finalmente, otro aspecto interesante era el momento de transición entre Blanco sobre Rojo y Lima. Considerando que las evidencias de ocupación Lima en Baños de Boza son escasas, revisamos la información estratigráfica de Cerro Trinidad y Playa Grande. De esta manera, observando las claras diferencias entre el Blanco sobre Rojo y Lima, suponemos que, al menos en el valle de Chancay, Lima no deriva estilísticamente del Blanco sobre Rojo sino que es un elemento foráneo. Además, ambos estilos coexisten durante un cierto período. THE WHITE-ON-RED POTTERY SEQUENCE IN THE CHANCAY VALLEY AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIMA STYLE.

    Full Text Available Painted around 1330, this fresco is located on a large section of the western façade of the church of the Mother of God Hodegetria at Peć above the entrance that leads from the monumental narthex into the interior of the building. It is a composition, joining the unusual image of the holy patroness of Archbishop Danilo II's ecclesiastical endowment, accompanied by two figures of angels in adoration, to create an iconographic whole with a twin presentation of the archpriests, St. Nicolas and Danilo II himself bowing in prayer. After giving a careful and detailed description of the entire content and setting of the painting, first of all, the paper discusses the content and message conveyed in the choice of the image of the Mother of God with Child, which, in the given assembly of figures, is distinguished by its central position and enlarged proportions. A perception of the views maintained so far, regarding the interpretation of this composition, and the specific points related to the choice of the central figure, when attempting to decipher its meaning, leads to considering that in a certain reinterpretation of the aforesaid, quite specific representation of the patroness of the Serbian archbishop's church endowment, there also lies the key for the explanation of the twin presentation of the two hierarchs in prayer, as well as for shedding light on the inter-relationship of all the figures involved in the painting, i.e. for perceiving the logic of uniting them in one composition. Even though a new attempt at comprehending the content and the subtle message of the fresco largely rests upon the examination and thorough research of comparative material that previous research workers have already noted as being significant for the examination of the given solution, this does not hold for the conclusions arising from the observation of that material. There is a critical review particularly of the previous conclusions that remain within the

    The East Blanco Depression (EBD), a pull-apart basin within the western Blanco Transform Fault Zone (BTFZ), was the site of an intense earthquake T-wave swarm that began at 1317Z on January 9, 1994. Although tectonically generated earthquakes occur frequently along the BTFZ, this swarm was unusual in that it was preceded and accompanied by periodic, low-frequency, long-duration acoustic signals, that originated from near the swarm epicenters. These tremor-like signals were very similar in character to acoustic energy produced by a shallow-submarine eruption near Socorro Island, a seamount several hundred km west of Baja, California. The ???69 earthquakes and ???400 tremor-like events at the EBD occurred sporadically, with two periods of peak activity occurring between January 5-16 and 27-31. The swarm-like character of the earthquakes and the similarity of the tremor activity to the Socorro eruption indicated that the EBD was undergoing an intrusion or eruption episode. On January 27, six CTD/rosette casts were conducted at the site. Water samples from two of the stations yielded anomalous 3He concentrations, with maxima at ???2800 m depth over the main basin. In June 1994 two camera tows within the basin yielded evidence of pillow-lava volcanism and hydrothermal deposits, but no conclusive evidence of a recent seafloor eruption. In September 1994, deployments of the U.S. Navy's Advanced Tethered Vehicle resulted in the discovery of an active hydrothermal mound on the flanks of a pillow-lava volcano. The hydrothermal mound consists of Fe-rich hydrothermal precipitate and bacterial mats. Temperatures to 60??C were measured 30 cm below the surface. This is the first discovery of active hydrothermal vents along an oceanic fracture zone. Although no conclusive evidence of volcanic activity associated with the T-wave event swarm was found during these response efforts, the EBD has been the site of recent seafloor eruptions.

    Full Text Available Apesar da proibição do consumo de leite cru no Brasil, em muitas regiões ainda persiste a comercialização deste tipo de produto. Na cidade de Lavras, MG, é comum a sua comercialização em diversos estabelecimentos, sendo que a sua qualidade é duvidosa por não haver um controle por parte dos produtores e muito menos por parte dos comerciantes. Sendo assim, este trabalho foi conduzido para avaliar as características físico-químicas, possíveis fraudes e padrão enzimático de leites crus comercializados e consumidos no município de Lavras. Foram analisadas 10 amostras de leites colhidos em diferentes pontos de venda, sendo realizadas 3 repetições para cada uma. Em cada uma foram realizadas as seguintes análises: acidez titulável, densidade a 15ºC, teores de gordura, extrato seco total e extrato seco desengordurado, pesquisa de peróxido de hidrogênio, amido, formol, cloretos e sacarose, determinação do volume, índice crioscópico, proteína, peroxidase e fosfatase alcalina. Na análise do Índice Crioscópico, (20% apresentaram valores médios fora do padrão. Quanto ao teor de gordura, observou-se que 10% estavam abaixo do mínimo aceitável para leite cru integral. Para todas as amostras, os valores médios de densidade apresentaramse dentro dos limites recomendados. Para o Extrato Seco Desengordurado, (20% apresentaram-se abaixo dos padrões regulamentares e (30% apresentaram acidez média fora da faixa. Quanto à presença de amido, peróxido de hidrogênio, cloretos, sacarose e formol, todas as amostras analisadas foram negativas. Reforça-se então o risco do consumo deste tipo de produto, pois não há uma legislação e fiscalização constante, facilitando assim possíveis fraudes com produtos prejudiciais à saúde e que não garantem a integridade do leite. Os resultados obtidos foram analisados por intermédio de estatística descritiva e comparados aos padrões oficiais estabelecidos pela legislação.

    Plants adapt themselves to overcome adverse environmental conditions, and this involves a plethora of concurrent cellular activities. Physiological experiments or metabolic profiling can quantify this response. Among several diseases of Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. (Patchouli), root-knot nematode infection caused by Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid and White) Chitwood causes severe damage to the plant and hence, the oil production. In the present study, we identified M. incognita morphologically and at molecular level using sequenced characterized amplified region marker (SCAR). M. incognita was artificially inoculated at different levels of second stage juveniles (J₂) to examine the effect on Patchouli plant growth parameters. Peroxidase and polyphenol oxidase enzyme activity and changes in the total phenol and chlorophyll contents in M. incognita was also evaluated in response to infection. The results have demonstrated that nematode infestation leads to increased peroxidase activities in the leaves of the patchouli plants and thereby, increase in phenolic content as a means of defence against nematode infestation. Chlorophyll content was also found decreased but no changes in polyphenol oxidase enzyme activity.

    Protoplast isolation is a stress-inducing process, during which a variety of physiological and molecular alterations take place. Such stress response affects the expression of totipotency of cultured protoplasts. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in plant growth, development and stress responses. However, the underlying mechanism of miRNAs involved in the protoplast totipotency remains unclear. In this study, high-throughput sequencing technology was used to sequence two populations of small RNA from calli and callus-derived protoplasts in Citrus reticulata Blanco. A total of 67 known miRNAs from 35 families and 277 novel miRNAs were identified. Among these miRNAs, 18 known miRNAs and 64 novel miRNAs were identified by differentially expressed miRNAs (DEMs) analysis. The expression patterns of the eight DEMs were verified by qRT-PCR. Target prediction showed most targets of the miRNAs were transcription factors. The expression levels of half targets showed a negative correlation to those of the miRNAs. Furthermore, the physiological analysis showed high levels of antioxidant activities in isolated protoplasts. In short, our results indicated that miRNAs may play important roles in protoplast-isolation response.

    Full Text Available Heat treatment and preservative application have been widely used during postharvest storage of many fresh products, but the effect of their combination on citrus storage has rarely been investigated. In this study, the optimal heat treatment (HT conditions and HT combined with preservative treatment were investigated for Ponkan fruit (Citrus reticulata Blanco cv. Ponkan storage. Results indicated that HT at 55°C for 20 s can significantly reduce the decay rate of Ponkan fruit, and a combination of HT and 25% of the preservative dosage used in production of iminoctadine tris (albesilate, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, and imazalil significantly reduced the decay rate without affecting fruit quality. In addition, the increased fiber contents in fruit receiving the HT combined with preservative treatments may be a response preventing fungus infection and enhancing fruit storability and resistance. The above results suggested that the combination of HT and 25% of the preservative production dosage was optimal for controlling Ponkan fruit decay during storage.

    Fortification of queso blanco (QB) with flaxseed oil (FO) containing omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may provide a functional food with health benefits such as improved cell, brain, and retina functionality, and protection against cardiovascular and immune-inflammatory diseases. However, QB experiences a short shelf life because of the early development of yeasts and molds and addition of FO may increase susceptibility to lipid oxidation. Oregano essential oil (OEO) is known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, but due to its intense flavor compounds it may not be suitable for direct incorporation into QB. Thus, incorporation of OEO into an edible film prepared with whey protein isolate (WPI) may improve the shelf life of QB. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) micrographs revealed that FO was successfully retained by the cheese after homogenization. The thiobarbituric-acid-reactive-substances (TBARS) and yeast and mold counts (YMC) of the wrapped cheeses were analyzed during 60 d of refrigerated storage. The oxidation rate increased significantly for nonwrapped QB containing FO (QBFO) during storage, however wrapping with WPI edible films containing OEO (WOF) significantly limited lipid oxidation and prevented growth of yeasts and molds. This study demonstrated the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of WOF for preservation of QBFO during refrigerated storage. © 2017 Institute of Food Technologists®.

    By using conventional squash stain technique and ultrathin sectioning technique, the effects of space flight on mitotic behavior and ultrastructure were studied in the shoot apical meristem of 'Fuju' (Citrus reticulata Blanco), which had been carried by China's seed-breeding satellite, Shijian-8. The results showed that space flight had effect on the mutagenesis of stem-apical meristem. Abnormal mitosis with various degrees had been detected in 13 mutant clones, of which mitotic aberrations in clone '08004' were significantly higher than the others. The aberration rate of numerical abnormalities of chromosomes at metaphase, lagging chromosome, micronucleus, C-spindle, S-spindle and polyarch spindle in the clone '08004' was 0.34%, 0.669%, 0.86%, 0.17%, 1.20% and 1.03%, respectively. The ultrastructure of mesophyll cell in most clones was unchanged, but nucleus chromatin agglutination, chloroplast thylakoid disintegrated, autophagosome appeared, cell vacuolated, plasmolysis and the formation of apoptotic body were found in the clone '08004', suggesting that programmed cell death (PCD) Nevertheless, no change in the mitochondrial structure was observed until terminal phase of PCD.

    Queso fresco (QF) is a handmade cheese consumed and produced in Latin America. In Mexico, QF production is associated with a microbiological risk. The aim of the study was to determine the incidence and characterization of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., and Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) in QF from retail markets of the north-western State of Sinaloa, Mexico, and to assess the effect of physicochemical parameters on Listeria presence. A total of 75 QF samples were obtained. L. monocytogenes, E. coli, and coliforms were detected in 9.3, 94, and 100%, respectively. Salmonella was not detected. STEC isolates showed virulence genes. Microbial loads were above the maximum values recommended by the Official Mexican Standards. Physicochemical parameters such as water activity (aw), moisture content, pH, and salinity played a role in Listeria prevalence in QF. Rigorous control in QF made in Culiacan, Mexico is needed to reduce the risk of foodborne pathogens.

Clemente in Rome was buried beneath an entirely new basilica.  Inspired by suggestions published by Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri (1998 and Valentino Pace (2007, the present article considers the possibility that this radical intervention constituted an act of damnatio memoriae or, better, of deletio memoriae, an obliteration of memory prompted by the nascent cult of miracles associated with Pope Paschal II’s enemy and rival, (antipope Clement III.  Clement III (Wibert of Ravenna died in 1100, not long after the execution of an extensive fresco cycle in the early Christian basilica celebrating the miracles and cult of the first-century pope and martyr St. Clement I of Rome.  Resonances between these images and the prodigia attributed to Clement III may have invited analogies between the two Clements, especially during the turbulent early years of Paschal II’s pontificate, when Paschal, alarmed by reports of his adversary’s miracles, had Clement III’s corpse exhumed and thrown into the Tiber. The perceived correspondences between the first-century pope and his eleventh-century namesake may have extended to their postmortem resting places – Clement I was martyred by being thrown into the Black Sea – as well as to their shared attributes, particularly the pontifical vestments and white hair prominently displayed in the frescoes. These attributes disappear in the early twelfth-century mosaic of Clement I on the apsidal arch of the new, upper church, where the saint is instead represented as a young man with dark hair, a dark beard, and an apostle’s clothing.  This extreme makeover in a work securely associable with Roman reform-party sponsorship effectively dissociated Clement I from the painted images in the earlier church and, very probably, from his eleventh-century namesake in the Tiber.

    Full Text Available O leite é um alimento que possui alto valor nutricional e por isso é de fundamental importância para a dieta humana, devendo chegar à mesa do consumidor sem qualquer descaracterização em sua composição. Entre as diversas atividades de controle da qualidade do leite, há a detecção de fraudes no leite cru, por meio da avaliação de seus parâmetros físico-químicos. Objetivou-se com este estudo analisar a caracterização físico-química de leite in natura comercializado informalmente no município de Aparecida/PB. No período de setembro a outubro de 2015, a cada 15 dias, foram coletadas seis amostras de vendedores distintos, denominados de L1, L2, L3, L4, L5 e L6, das quais se realizaram análises de densidade (g/ml, umidade, cinzas, gordura, acidez em ºDornic, pH, índice crioscópico, adição de amido, Extrato Seco Total (EST, Extrato Seco Desengordurado (ESD, sendo feitas em três repetições das coletas de cada vendedor e, posteriormente, realizada a medição da temperatura no momento da coleta das amostras. Os resultados obtidos foram confrontados com a Instrução Normativa IN 62/2011. A umidade variou de 67,49% a 89,45%; as cinzas de 0,45% a 0,73%; a gordura de 3,5% a 7,5%; a acidez de 14ºD a 23ºD; o pH de 5,83 a 6,93; a densidade de 1,022 g/ml a 1,031 g/ml; o índice crioscópico de 0,464 a 0,542, apresentando uma adição de percentual de água de 0,12% a 6,74%; o EST de 10,54% a 32,50%; o ESD de 3,42% a 27,55% e a temperatura das amostras na coleta de 27°C a 33, 2°C. De acordo com os resultados obtidos, pode-se concluir que as amostras se apresentam de forma insatisfatória quando comparadas com a IN 62, indicando uma possível fraude deste produto.

    Here we have identified and characterized a devastating virus capable of inducing yellow mosaic on the leaves of Patchouli [Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth]. The diagnostic tools used were host range, transmission studies, cytopathology, electron microscopy, serology and partial coat protein (CP) gene sequencing. Evidence from biological, serological and sequence data suggested that the causal virus belonged to genus Potyvirus, family Potyviridae. The isolate, designated as Patchouli Yellow Mosaic Virus (PaYMV), was transmitted through grafting, sap and the insect Myzus persicae (Sulz.). Flexuous rod shaped particles with a mean length of 800 nm were consistently observed in leaf-dip preparations from natural as well as alternate hosts, and in purified preparation. Cytoplasmic cylindrical inclusions, pinwheels and laminar aggregates were observed in ultra-thin sections of infected patchouli leaves. The purified capsid protein has a relative mass of 43 kDa. Polyclonal antibodies were raised in rabbits against the coat protein separated on SDS - PAGE; which were used in ELISA and western blotting. Using specific antibodies in ELISA, PaYMV was frequently detected at patchouli plantations at Lucknow and Bengaluru. Potyvirus-specific degenerate primer pair (U335 and D335) had consistently amplified partial CP gene from crude preparations of infected tissues by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Comparison of the PCR product sequence (290 bp) with the corresponding regions of established potyviruses showed 78-82% and 91-95% sequence similarity at the nucleotide and amino acid levels, respectively. The results clearly established that the virus under study has close homology with watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) in the coat protein region and therefore could share a common ancestor family. Further studies are required to authenticate the identity of PaYMV as a distinct virus or as an isolate of WMV.

    The reentry drilling established communication with the top Rio Blanco detonation region at a depth of 1704 meters, or about 76 meters above the top detonation center. A total of 2.8 x 10 6 m 3 of dry gas at standard conditions has now been produced during two separate test periods. Radioactive and chemical analysis of this gas and the modeling of the stimulated reservoir shows the following main results: (1) No permeable connection exists between the top and the middle detonation regions, since no significant amount of the tracer incorporated in the center explosive canister was detected in the produced gas. As a consequence, results for the top detonation region only are available at this time. (2) The initial cavity radius is deduced to be 20 m or well within expectations. (3) Integration of the 85 Kr produced indicates a yield of 34 +- 3 kt for the top explosive. (4) Of the approximately 1000 Ci of tritium produced in the top explosion region, about 5 percent is incorporated in the gas phase. (5) Pressure drawdown and buildup data are best reproduced by a two-layer reservoir model showing stimulated permeabilities about 10 and 30 times original formation permeabilities, and extending to a distance of about three cavity radii from the wellbore. (6) The capacity of the reservoir intercepted by the top explosive is deduced to be about 0.2 millidarcy-meters, as contrasted with preshot estimates ranging from 1.3 md-m to 2.3 md-m. (U.S.)

    Full Text Available ResumenEn las primeras décadas del siglo XIX, José María Blanco White reescribió y reconstruyó sus múltiples identidades, individuales y colectivas, e intentó fijar en relación con ellas un relato de su vida, siempre inestable. Este texto sitúa su obra y, en particular, sus Letters from Spain (1822, en el marco del debate europeo sobre los caracteres nacionales. Un debate que descansaba, en buena medida, en esa concepción escindida de Europa en la que el Sur mediterráneo «atrasado» funcionaba como una contrapartida especular del Norte «moderno». La obra de Blanco White nos permite analizar cómo dicha concepción influyó en cómo se pensaron y construyeron las identidades en la Europa de principios del siglo XIX.AbstractAt the beginning of the nineteenth-century, José María Blanco White rewrote and reconstructed his multiple identities, individual as much as collective. He tried to lay down the tale of his life, a tale that was always unsteady. This article connects his work, and especially his Letters from Spain (1822, with the European debate on national characters. To a large extent, this debate was based on an understanding of Europe in which the Mediterranean backward South worked as an opposite mirror for the modern North. Through the work of Blanco White we can analyse how this understanding influenced the way in which identities were designed and constructed in the Europe of the first decades of the nineteenth century.

    Development of reduced-sodium cheese to meet the demands of consumers concerned about sodium levels in their diet is challenging when a high-moisture, higher pH, fresh cheese, such as Queso Fresco (QF), depends on its NaCl salt content to obtain its signature flavor and quality traits. This study evaluated the effects of different Na-K salt blends on the compositional, sensorial, microbial, functional, and rheological properties of QF stored for up to 12 wk at 4°C. Queso Fresco curd from each vat was divided into 6 portions and salted with different blends of NaCl-KCl (Na-K, %): 0.75-0.75, 1.0-0.5, 1.0-1.0, 1.0-1.3, 1.0-1.5, and 2.0-0 (control). Within this narrow salt range (1.5 to 2.5% total salt), the moisture, protein, fat, and lactose levels; water activity; pH; and the textural and rheological properties were not affected by salt treatment or aging. The total salt, sodium, potassium, and ash contents reflected the different Na-K ratios added to the QF. Total aerobic microbial count, overall proteolysis, the release of casein phosphopeptides, and the level of volatile compounds were affected by aging but not by the salt treatment. Only the 1.0-1.3 and 1.0-1.5 Na-K cheeses had sensory saltiness scores similar to that of the 2.0-0 Na-K control QF. Loss of free serum from the cheese matrix increased steadily over the 12 wk, with higher losses found in QF containing 1.5% total salt compared with the higher Na-K blends. In conclusion, KCl substitution is a viable means for reduction of sodium in QF resulting in only minor differences in the quality traits, and levels of 1.0-1.3 and 1.0-1.5 Na-K are recommended to match the saltiness intensity of the 2.0-0 Na-K control. The findings from this study will aid cheese producers in creating reduced-sodium QF for health-conscious consumers. Copyright © 2017 American Dairy Science Association. Published by Elsevier Inc.

    Full Text Available Resumen A partir de la lectura de Piel negra, máscaras blancas, propongo en este artículo reflexionar sobre las ideas de Frantz Fanon a cerca de la enajenación del negro y del blanco en el sistema colonial. El objetivo es recuperar algunos de los principales aportes de Fanon para la comprensión del racismo colonial desde su teoría de la enajenación. Fanon presenta la enajenación como un paso previo a la esclavitud y al colonialismo, necesario para el mantenimiento de la explotación económica y analiza las conductas identitarias de "vergüenza de sí" como el resultado de la dominación colonial. Él describe con precisión el impacto del racismo y del colonialismo y sus efectos destructivos mostrando cómo los mecanismos de enajenación determinan la relación entre el blanco y el negro y cómo se reproducen las jerarquías que rigen estas relaciones. Retomar el pensamiento de Fanon y reconocer la pertinencia y actualidad de sus contribuciones es esencial para poder reubicar la lucha contra todas las formas de dominación en la continuación de la lucha contra el colonialismo en una época en que la identidad racial y el racismo han más que probado su capacidad de persistir en el tiempo y el espacio.

    The medieval chapel of Notre Dame-des-Fontaines (Our Lady of the Fountains), in the French Maritime Alps, is entirely covered by the fresco cycle of the Passion (15th century) that depicts the last days of Jesus from the Last Supper to the Resurrection. Under a small window, there is the brutal representation of the suicide of Judas Iscariot, hanging from a tree, with the abdomen quartered from which his soul, represented by a small man, is kidnapped by a devil. The author, Giovanni Canavesio, represented the traitor's death with very detailed anatomical structures, differently thus from other paintings of the same subject; it is therefore possible to assume that the artist had become familiar with the human anatomy. In particular, the realism of the hanged man's posture, neck bent in an unnatural way, allows us to hypothesize that it probably comes from direct observation of the executions of capital punishment, not infrequently imposed by the public authorities in low medieval Italy.

    Urban food swamps are typically situated in low-income, minority communities and contribute to overweight and obesity. Changing the food landscape in low income and underserved communities is one strategy to combat the negative health consequences associated with the lack of access to healthy food resources and an abundance of unhealthy food venues. In this paper, we describe Proyecto MercadoFRESCO (Fresh Market Project), a corner store intervention project in East Los Angeles and Boyle Heights in California that used a multi-level approach with a broad range of community, business, and academic partners. These are two neighboring, predominantly Latino communities that have high rates of overweight and obesity. Located in these two communities are approximately 150 corner stores. The project used a community-engaged approach to select, recruit, and convert four corner stores, so that they could become healthy community assets in order to improve residents' access to and awareness of fresh and affordable fruits and vegetables in their immediate neighborhoods. We describe the study framework for the multi-level intervention, which includes having multiple stakeholders, expertise in corner store operations, community and youth engagement strategies, and social marketing campaigns. We also describe the evaluation and survey methodology to determine community and patron impact of the intervention. This paper provides a framework useful to a variety of public health stakeholders for implementing a community-engaged corner store conversion, particularly in an urban food swamp.

    Full Text Available A areia de fundição residual (AFR consiste em um resíduo arenoso proveniente dos moldes utilizados no processo de fundição de metais. O presente trabalho foi desenvolvido com o objetivo de avaliar a influência do uso da AFR nas propriedades concreto. Para tanto, utilizou-se cimento CPV-ARI RS, aditivo plastificante, AFR e areias fina, média natural e de britagem. As propriedades no estado fresco foram avaliadas através da determinação da consistência e teor de ar incorporado. No estado endurecido avaliou-se a resistência à compressão axial. Os resultados indicaram que o uso da AFR resulta no aumento do teor de ar incorporado, fissuração por reações expansivas e conseqüente redução de resistência. Visando investigar a origem das tendências observadas, realizou-se um estudo complementar empregando AFR de diferentes composições. Todavia, independente da composição utilizada, os resultados indicaram tendência semelhante à observada anteriormente. Por fim, considerando os materiais empregados nesta pesquisa, conclui-se que a utilização da AFR em concreto é inadequada, pois prejudica não apenas a resistência mecânica, mas também a durabilidade do material.

    Hispanic-style fresh cheeses, such as Queso Fresco (QF), have been linked to numerous listeriosis outbreaks in the United States. In this work, we have studied the antilisterial behavior and effectiveness of the Listeria phage endolysin PlyP100 in QF, as well as the potential synergy between PlyP100 and nisin. PlyP100 showed similar bacterial reduction regardless of varying L. monocytogenes inoculum size in QF, and when the inoculation size was 1 Log CFU/g, no pathogen recovery after cheese enrichment was observed. PlyP100 was stable in QF for up to 28 days of cold storage exhibiting similar antilisterial activity regardless of when contamination with L. monocytogenes occurred. PlyP100 alone exhibited a strong listeriostatic effect in QF, on the contrary, nisin alone was not effective to control the pathogen in QF during cold storage. The combination of nisin and PlyP100 showed a strong synergy in QF with non-enumerable levels of L. monocytogenes after 4 weeks of refrigerated storage. Moreover, L. monocytogenes isolates from cheeses treated with nisin, PlyP100, and their combination did not develop resistance to nisin or PlyP100. Our results support the use of PlyP100 combined with nisin as an efficient L. monocytogenes control measure in QF. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Additionally, two were collected during the winter months, and two were collected during the summer months. For the second part of the study, a total of 39 samples from a farm, a CPP, and retail markets were collected and processed according to a combination of the Norma Oficial Mexicana NOM-143-SSA1-1995.10 method (NOM) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Bacteriological Analytical Manual method, and 27 samples from these same locations were collected and processed according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service method (USDA-FSIS). The NOM-FDA method recovered the pathogen from 6 (15%) of 39 samples (one cheese and five product contact surfaces), while the USDA-FSIS method recovered the pathogen from 5 (18.5%) of 27 samples (all product contact surfaces). In addition, the 40 isolates recovered from the 15 total samples that tested positive for Lm grouped into five distinct pulsotypes that were ca. 60% related, as determined by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analysis. The results of this study confirmed a 3.4% prevalence of Lm in QF collected from retail markets located in Sonora and no appreciable difference in the effectiveness of either the NOM-FDA or USDA-FSIS method to recover the pathogen from cheese or environmental samples.

    Full Text Available En la Empresa Citrícola "Victoria de Girón", provincia de Matanzas, Cuba, se realizó durante 138 días una investigación con 433 toros de genotipos mestizos de razas lecheras (Holstein x Cebú, en la que se evaluó una dieta basada en pastoreo restringido (cuatro horas en la mañana, forraje verde y hollejo de cítrico a voluntad, suplementados con heno de gramíneas, sal mineral y North gold. El hollejo de cítricos se ofreció en forma de ensilaje desde el 8 de agosto hasta el 31 de octubre, y en forma fresca desde el 1ro de noviembre hasta el 24 de diciembre. Este último se enriqueció con urea, a razón de 0,04 kg por cada 5 kg de hollejo. En el periodo lluvioso, el forraje presentó los menores porcentajes de MS y los mayores valores de EM y PDIN, con poca variación entre periodos para el PDIE. Los hollejos frescos y ensilados mantuvieron valores análogos a los de otros estudios; el heno tenía baja calidad, y el consumo de forraje fue similar en ambos períodos; los hollejos conservados fueron menos consumidos que los frescos. La ganancia fue mayor con los hollejos conservados (0,593 vs. 0,556 kg/animal/día. Los balances nutricionales indicaron que se cubrieron los requerimientos de MS y EM, aunque en los compuestos nitrogenados se realizó un uso ineficiente debido a que hubo un exceso de PDIE, que no fue corregido mediante la incorporación de urea. En ambos períodos, los mayores porcentajes de aportes de nutrimentos correspondieron al forraje y al hollejo de cítrico en sus dos modalidades. Los índices de conversión tuvieron una mejor respuesta con el ensilaje (13,3 vs. 15,5 kg de MS/kg de ganancia. Se concluye que es factible utilizar los hollejos de cítrico frescos o ensilados; aunque, para incrementar las ganancias y la conversión alimentaria, es necesario aumentar la suplementación proteínica y disponer de alimentos que equilibren las cantidades de PDIN y PDIE en las dietas.At the "Victoria de Girón" Citrus Fruit

    Polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) and flavanone glycosides (FGs) were analyzed in hand-pressed juice and the peeled fruit of 'Sainampueng' tangerines ( Citrus reticulata Blanco cv. Sainampueng) grown in northern Thailand. The tangerines were collected from a citrus cluster of small orchard farmers and were cultivated as either agrochemical-based (AB), agrochemical-safe (AS), or organic grown fruits. Juice samples were also measured on contents of carotenoids, ascorbic acid, and tocopherols. The peel-deriving PMFs tangeretin, nobiletin, and sinensetin were found with high concentrations in juice as a result of simple squeezing, whereas amounts of those PMFs were negligibly low in peeled tangerine fruit. In contrast, the mean concentrations of the FGs narirutin, hesperidin, and didymin were several fold higher in peeled fruit than in tangerine juice and significantly higher in organic than AS and AB tangerines. Narirutin and hesperidin in juice from organic produces as well as narirutin in juice from AS produces were significantly higher than respective mean concentrations in juice from AB produces. beta-Cryptroxanthin was the predominant carotenoid beside zeaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, and beta-carotene in tangerine juice. Ascorbic acid concentrations were not predicted by the type of cultivation, whereas alpha-tocopherol was significantly higher in juice from organic than AS produces. In summary, hand-pressed juice of C. reticulata Blanco cv. Sainampueng serves as a rich source of PMFs, FGs, carotenoids, and antioxidants: 4-5 tangerine fruits ( approximately 80 g of each fruit) giving one glass of 200 mL hand-pressed juice would provide more than 5 mg of nobiletin and tangeretin and 36 mg of hesperidin, narirutin, and didymin, as well as 30 mg of ascorbic acid, >1 mg of provitamin A active beta-cryptoxanthin, and 200 microg of alpha-tocopherol.

    This open-file report was prepared in support of the USGS Earthquake Hazards of Cascadia Project. The primary objective of this phase of the project is to determine recurrence intervals of turbidites in Cascadia basin-floor channel systems and evaluate implications of this event record for the paleoseismic history of the Cascadia subduction zone. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the canyon/channel systems themselves are blocked or deformed in such a way that the downstream turbidite stratigraphy might be biased. To accomplish this investigation approximately 7500 kilometers of pre-existing 3.5 KHz seismic data were evaluated to determine the direction and extent of the Astoria Channel/pathway system, which originates at the base of the Astoria Fan. Additionally, distribution and thickness of turbidite sediment sequences were determined along each identified pathway. Bathymetery and distance were used to determine gradients along the main pathway axis and for each of the secondary pathways that feed into it. Channel pathways were identified on the basis of channel phyisiography, where visible at the seafloor, subbottom channel configuration, and acoustic packets of sediments that might represent turbidite deposits. A principal result of this study is that the Astoria Channel/pathway extends continuously from the base of the Astoria Fan southward along the base of the continental slope through the Blanco Valley, then heads southwestward through the Gorda Basin and into the region of the Escanaba Trough. Additionally it was determined that the Astoria Channel is filled and basically buried for it's full length south of 44 degrees latitude. The 44 North Slump, as defined by Goldfinger (1999, see Map 3 ref.), may have been instrumental in blocking the pathway and thus contributed to the filling of the channel/pathway. Sheets 1 and 2 show the Astoria and secondary turbidite pathways highlighted in blue. Ship survey tracklines are shown for the area

Os aspectos analisados incluíram os parâmetros físicos do sêmen fresco; a motilidade e a longevidade do sêmen diluído e descongelado; a morfologia espermática, integridade funcional e estrutural da membrana plasmática do espermatozoide e a habilidade de ligação do espermatozoide à membrana perivitelina da gema do ovo de galinha do sêmen descongelado. As variáveis foram avaliadas pela ANOVA com post hoc teste de Student Newman-Keuls (P<0,05. A MT e a MP foram maiores (P<0,05 no sêmen diluído do que no descongelado. A percentagem média de defeitos maiores, menores e totais foi muito inferior ao limite recomendado pelo CBRA. A porcentagem de reativos ao HOST foi de 14,21±1,12% e a porcentagem média de membranas íntegras detectadas pelo teste supravital de 62,22±9,06% e pela sonda SYBR-14 de 81,47±26,90. O número médio de espermatozoides ligados à MPV após a descongelação do sêmen foi de 230,39±57,09. A MT e MP no tempo 0 min do TTR foi superior (P<0,05 em relação a 150 min, não diferindo nos tempos 10 min e 30 min. Os resultados demonstram que a utilização dos testes laboratoriais adicionais ajudam no processo de avaliação das amostras, possibilitando a obtenção de informações mais confiáveis e precisas. Embora a criopreservação tenha provocado queda na motilidade seminal, o uso de diluidor contendo amidas minimizou os danos osmóticos nas células espermáticas e manteve a integridade morfológica, funcional e estrutural da membrana plasmática do espermatozoide. Estes resultados são um referencial em estudos futuros uma vez que, inexistem dados comparativos nesta raça.

    One of the main tools of assessment and diagnosis used to define appropriate strategies for the preservation of cultural heritage is the environmental monitoring. To achieve an environmental monitoring are needed high costs of purchase and maintenance, high costs of instrumental and for the management of the plants and processing of results. These costs imply that the technologies for environmental monitoring are not as common but their use is limited to the study very famous monuments or sites. To extend the use and dissemination of such technologies to a greater number of monuments, through the project Pro_Cult (Advanced methodological approaches and technologies for Protection and Security of Cultural Heritage) a research aimed at testing low cost technologies has been performed. The aim of the research is to develop low cost monitoring systems, assessing their effectiveness in a comparative way with commercial high cost ones. To this aim an environmental monitoring system using the Arduino system was designed and developed. It is an electronics prototyping platform based on open-source hardware and software flexible and user friendly. This system is connected to sensors for the detection of environmental parameters of non high purchase cost but with respect to the medium potential detection sensors accurately. This low cost system was tested in the framework of a microclimate monitoring project of the crypt of St. Francis of Assisi in Irsina (Southern Italy) enriched by a precious cycle of medieval frescoes. The aim of this research was to compare two monitoring systems, the first, at low cost, using Arduino system, and the second, a standard commercial product for a full yearly cycle and assess the reliability and the results obtained by the two systems. This paper shows the results of the comparative analysis of an entire monitoring yearly cycle in relation to the problems of degradation affecting the paintings of medieval crypt [1]. The obtained results

O presente projeto de extensão universitária teve como objetivo a elaboração de uma ferramenta de cálculo de informação nutricional de produtos alimentícios. A partir de uma pesquisa exploratória, foi verificado que poucos produtores possuíam produtos alimentícios com rótulos e os mesmos tinham interesse na obtenção dos rótulos para se adequarem às normas municipal e federal. Para isso, uma ferramenta de cálculo foi desenvolvida em planilha eletrônica baseada na metodologia proposta pela Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA e em tabelas de composição de alimentos (TACO. Os feirantes foram conscientizados da importância de obter produtos alimentícios portando rótulos, e um levantamento da situação atual da feira foi realizado. Com o processo de rotulagem dos alimentos, as receitas tiveram que ser padronizadas, e o rendimento da produção foi medido.

    Full Text Available Resumo De acordo com o Balanço Energético Nacional (ano-base 2013, o consumo nacional de lenha foi de 79,29 milhões de toneladas. Estima-se uma geração de cinza na ordem de 3% durante esse processo, o que ocasiona problemas de armazenamento e de descarte. Sendo assim, a potencial transformação desses resíduos em matéria-prima para elementos construtivos apresenta-se como uma oportunidade para a preservação do meio ambiente e para a redução do custo de materiais da construção civil. O presente trabalho objetiva, portanto, avaliar a viabilidade desse reaproveitamento por meio da análise das propriedades das argamassas no estado fresco, incluindo a reologia, além da reatividade potencial (RAA, utilizando cinza proveniente da queima de cavacos de eucalipto com teores de 10%, 20% e 30% de substituição, em massa, ao cimento Portland. Através dos ensaios realizados verificou-se que a utilização da cinza de eucalipto como substituição parcial ao cimento não altera significativamente as propriedades de argamassas no estado fresco e não apresenta reatividade significativa, apresentando-se como uma alternativa de uso tecnicamente viável.

    The U.S. Geological Survey is cooperating with the U.S. Bureau of Mines in the selection of a site for a shaft and experimental mine to be constructed in the Piceance Creek basin, Rio Blanco County, Colo. The Piceance Creek basin, an asymmetric, northwest-trending large structural downwarp, is located approximately 40 km (25 mi) west of the town of Meeker in Rio Blanco County, Colo. The oil-shale, dawsonite, nahcolite, and halite deposits of the Piceance Creek basin occur in the lacustrine Green River Formation of Eocene age. In the basin the Green River Formation comprises three members. In ascending order, they are the Douglas Creek, the Garden Gulch, and the Parachute Creek Members, Four sites are presented for consideration and evaluated on geology and hydrology with respect to shale-oil economics. Evaluated criteria include: (1) stratigraphy, (2) size of site, (3) oil-shale yield, (4) representative quantities of the saline minerals dawsonite and nahcolite, which must be present with a minimum amount of halite, (5) thickness of a 'leached' saline zone, (6) geologic structure, (7) engineering characteristics of rock, (8) representative surface and ground-water conditions, with emphasis on waste disposal and dewatering, and (9) environmental considerations. Serious construction and support problems are anticipated in sinking a deep shaft in the Piceance Creek basin. The two major concerns will be dealing with incompetent rock and large inflow of saline ground water, particularly in the leached zone. Engineering support problems will include stabilizing and hardening the rock from which a certain amount of ground water has been removed. The relative suitability of the four potential oil-shale experimental shaft sites in the Piceance Creek basin has been considered on the basis of all available geologic, hydrologic, and engineering data; site 2 is preferred to sites 1, 3, and 4, The units in this report are presented in the form: metric (English).

    Plant S-phase kinase-associated protein 1 (SKP1) genes play crucial roles in plant development and differentiation. However, the role of SKP1 in citrus is unclear. Herein, we described a novel SKP1-like gene, designated as CrWSKP1, from "Wuzishatangju" (Citrus reticulata Blanco). The cDNA sequence of CrWSKP1 is 779 base pairs (bp) and contains an open reading frame (ORF) of 477 bp. The genomic sequence of the CrWSKP1 gene is 1296 bp with two exons and one intron. CrWSKP1 has high identity with SKP1-like genes from other plant species within two conserved regions. Approximately 85% of pollen tubes of self-pollinated CrWSKP1 transgenic tobaccos became twisted at four days after self-pollination. Pollen tube numbers of self-pollinated CrWSKP1 transformants entering into ovules were significantly fewer than that of the control. Seed number of self-pollinated CrWSKP1 transformants was significantly reduced. These results suggested that the CrWSKP1 is involved in the self-incompatibility (SI) reaction of "Wuzishatangju".

    Heat shock transcription factors (Hsfs) play a role in plant responses to stress. Citrus is an economically important fruit whose genome has been fully sequenced. So far, no detailed characterization of the Hsf gene family is available for citrus. A genome-wide analysis was carried out in Citrus clementina to identify Hsf genes, named CcHsfs. Eighteen CcHsfs were identified and classified into three main clades (clades A, B and C) according to the structural characteristics and the phylogenetic comparison with Arabidopsis and tomato. MEME motif analysis highlighted the conserved DBD and HR-A/B domains, which were similar to Hsf protein structures in other species. Gene expression analysis in Ponkan (Citrus reticulata Blanco cv. Ponkan) fruit identified 14 Hsf genes, named CrHsf, as important candidates for a role in fruit development and ripening, and showed seven genes to be expressed in response to hot air stress. CrHsfB2a and CrHsfB5 were considered to be important regulators of citrate content and showed variation in both developmentally-related and hot air-triggered citrate degradation processes. In summary, the data obtained from this investigation provides the basis for further study to dissect Hsf function during fruit development as well as in response to heat stress and also emphasizes the potential importance of CrHsfs in regulation of citrate metabolism in citrus fruit.

    Fourteen monitoring wells completed in the Uinta and Green River Formations in the Piceance Creek and Yellow Creek watersheds in Rio Blanco County, Colorado, were sampled for chemical, isotopic, and groundwater-age tracers to provide information on the overall groundwater quality, the occurrence and distribution of chemicals that could be related to the development of underlying natural-gas reservoirs, and to better understand groundwater residence times in the flow system. Methane concentrations in groundwater ranged from less than 0.0005 to 387 milligrams per liter. The methane was predominantly biogenic in origin, although the biogenic methane was mixed with thermogenic methane in water from seven wells. Three BTEX compounds (benzene, toluene, and ethylbenzene) were detected in water from six of the wells, but none of the concentrations exceeded Federal drinking-water standards. The presence of thermogenic methane in the aquifers indicates a connection and vulnerability to chemicals in deeper geologic units. Helium-4 data indicate that groundwater had ages ranging from less than 1,000 years to greater than 50,000 years. The presence of old groundwater in parts of the aquifers indicates that these aquifers may not be useful for large-scale water supply because of low recharge rates.

    To date, the study of in-stream wood in rivers has been focused mainly on quantifying wood pieces deposited above the ground. However, in some particular river systems, the presence of buried dead wood can also represent an important component of wood recruitment and budgeting dynamics. This is the case of the Blanco River (Southern Chile) severely affected by the eruption of Chaitén Volcano occurred between 2008 and 2009. The high pyroclastic sediment deposition and transport affected the channel and the adjacent forest, burying wood logs and standing trees. The aim of this contribution is to assess the presence and distribution of wood in two study areas (483 m2 and 1989 m2, respectively) located along the lower streambank of the Blanco River, and covered by thick pyroclastic deposition up to 5 m. The study areas were surveyed using two different devices, a Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) and a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). The first was used to scan the above surface achieving a high point cloud density (≈ 2000 points m-2) which allowed us to identify and measure the wood volume. The second, was used to characterize the internal morphology of the volcanic deposits and to detect the presence and spatial distribution of buried wood up to a depth of 4 m. Preliminary results have demonstrated differences in the numerousness and volume of above wood between the two study areas. In the first one, there were 43 wood elements, 33 standing trees and 10 logs, with a total volume of 2.96 m3 (109.47 m3 km-1), whereas the second one was characterized by the presence of just 7 standing trees and 11 wood pieces, for a total amount of 0.77 m3 (7.73 m3 km-1). The dimensions of the wood elements vary greatly according to the typology, standing trees show the higher median values in diameter and length (0.15 m and 2.91 m, respectively), whereas the wood logs were smaller (0.06 m and 1.12 m, respectively). The low dimensions of deposited wood can be probably connected to their

Los contenidos de alofano, ferrihidrita, y óxidos de hierro cristalino se presentan en pocas cantidades, escasos contenidos de Ald y Si lábil en los perfiles indican presencia de aluminosilicatos cristalinos. Bajas relaciones de Alp/Alo y Fep/Feo evidencia que la mayor parte de Al y Fe están unidos a compuestos inorgánicos pobremente cristalinos. Relaciones bajas de Fep/Fed y Alp/Ald indican limitada asociación de Fe y Al con compuestos orgánicos.

    Full Text Available As notícias sobre as guerras internacionais desencadeadas no marco da Guerra Fria têm sido utilizadas pela discursividade nacionalista em pós do seu programa político próprio, mais vinculado ao contexto local do que ao internacional.O semanário político dos anos cinqüenta e sessenta, Azul y Blanco, virou testemunha disso. Este, embora tenha-se concentrado principalmente na política nacional, deixou filtrar em suas páginas notícias internacionais que expunham as problemáticas mais importantes da Guerra Fria nesses anos, desde uma óptica nacionalista que ia mais longe das identidades nacionais para construir um “nós” geograficamente mais amplo. Assim, apesar da maior relevância da Revolução Cubana nas páginas da revista, a situação do bloco oriental europeu e a Guerra do Vietnã foram também importantes na secção internacional. Essas notícias eram escritas por correspondentes e editores argentinos e estrangeiros. Ambos argentinos e estrangeiros tiveram posicionamentos políticos e ideológicos que ficaram comprometidos com seus respectivos cenários locais. Assim, eles contribuíram especialmente para as transformações que atravessava o discurso nacionalista local. Nesse sentido, as redefinições ideológicas e políticas do nacionalismo argentino desses anhos nutriram-se também de aqueles olhares.

Organismos cuyo peso varió entre 0.7 y 1.0 g fueron inmersos durante 6 h en soluciones de β-glucano, lipopolisacárido (LPS, fucoidán, y Vibrio penaeicida muerto por calor. Se determinó la actividad enzimática de la MnSOD en los organismos para evaluar si los diferentes inmunoestimulantes utilizados eran capaces de inducir actividad antioxidante. Los inmunoestimulantes probados activaron el sistema inmune de los camarones, mostrando un incremento generalizado en la respuesta antioxidante 48 h después del ensayo. El mayor incremento en la actividad de la enzima (3.2 veces superior al grupo control se registró cuando se utilizó la bacterina. Se expusieron los camarones a V. penaeicida 10 días después de la exposición a los inmunoestimulantes, obteniendo un incremento en la actividad antioxidante de los camarones expuestos previamente a β-glucano, LPS y fucoidán. La respuesta enzimática más alta se obtuvo con los organismos estimulados con β-glucano (2.5 veces superior al control. Este estudio demostró la capacidad de los juveniles de camarón para mejorar la respuesta antioxidante después de ser expuestos a inmunoestimulantes y a una bacteria patógena.

    In the early 1100s, the fifth-century church of S. Clemente in Rome was buried beneath an entirely new basilica.  Inspired by suggestions published by Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri (1998 and Valentino Pace (2007, the present article considers the possibility that this radical intervention constituted an act of damnatio memoriae or, better, of deletio memoriae, an obliteration of memory prompted by the nascent cult of miracles associated with Pope Paschal II’s enemy and rival, (antipope Clement III.  Clement III (Wibert of Ravenna died in 1100, not long after the execution of an extensive fresco cycle in the early Christian basilica celebrating the miracles and cult of the first-century pope and martyr St. Clement I of Rome.  Resonances between these images and the prodigia attributed to Clement III may have invited analogies between the two Clements, especially during the turbulent early years of Paschal II’s pontificate, when Paschal, alarmed by reports of his adversary’s miracles, had Clement III’s corpse exhumed and thrown into the Tiber.

    The perceived correspondences between the first-century pope and his eleventh-century namesake may have extended to their postmortem resting places – Clement I was martyred by being thrown into the Black Sea – as well as to their shared attributes, particularly the pontifical vestments and white hair prominently displayed in the frescoes. These attributes disappear in the early twelfth-century mosaic of Clement I on the apsidal arch of the new, upper church, where the saint is instead represented as a young man with dark hair, a dark beard, and an apostle’s clothing.  This extreme makeover in a work securely associable with Roman reform-party sponsorship effectively dissociated Clement I from the painted images in the earlier church and, very probably, from his eleventh-century namesake in the Tiber.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Realizar um diagnóstico da existência das cantinas em Florianópolis, verificando os alimentos e bebidas comercializados, após a instituição da Lei Estadual de Regulamentação das Cantinas. MÉTODOS: Questionário estruturado foi aplicado por telefone com os diretores ou responsáveis pelas cantinas do universo de escolas de ensino fundamental das redes municipal, estadual e particular de Florianópolis. Os dados foram processados e analisados utilizando-se o software SPSS versão 10.0. RESULTADOS: Das 117 instituições do município em 2006, 89,7% aceitaram participar. Dessas, 53,3% possuem cantina, sendo 31 particulares, 22 estaduais e apenas 3 municipais. Os principais motivos referidos para a ausência de cantinas nas escolas públicas consistiram na existência do Programa de Alimentação Escolar e nas exigências para sua adequação à Lei. Dentre os alimentos proibidos pela Lei, salienta-se que os salgados fritos e industrializados não são mais comercializados pelas escolas, e a maioria não comercializa mais refrigerantes (98,2% e pipocas industrializadas (92,9%. Ressalta-se, também, que os sucos naturais e os salgados assados são comercializados por 75,0% e 98,2% das escolas, respectivamente. Por outro lado, 60,7% das escolas comercializam sucos artificiais. Ainda de acordo com a Lei, as cantinas deverão disponibilizar dois tipos de frutas sazonais. No entanto 60,7% dos estabelecimentos não disponibilizam frutas ou salada de frutas. CONCLUSÃO: Itens proibidos pela Lei foram fortemente reduzidos ou retirados de comercialização, porém alimentos considerados inadequados continuam sendo comercializados em muitas escolas. A fiscalização desses estabelecimentos é necessária, juntamente com ações educativas destinadas aos proprietários das cantinas, escolares, pais e professores.OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to verify the existence of canteens in Florianópolis and the foods and beverages that

The misinterpretation form governmental authorities lead to think that oppositionists promoted the closure of ports, a halt on exchange and limitations to the access to economic resources coming from foreign trade with the purpose of obtain political benefits. To avoid oppositionists politically use epidemics cycles, governmental action were addressed to prevent rumors and to put down any political action related to this matter. Gúzman government also efficiently carried out an information policy from consular offices aimed to take advantage from up-to-date information with respect to vessels movements and their internal health situation. Moreover, a set of highly effective national and international preventative measure were adopted in order to control and manage epidemic cycles.

    En este artículo se analiza cómo durante el guzmancismo, los ciclos epidémicos ocasionaban en el gobierno un ambiente de desconfianza y tensión política, porque de manera equivocada se pensaba que eran empleados por algunos opositores para incidir en el cierre de los puertos, paralizar el intercambio, cortar el flujo de recursos económicos provenientes del comercio exterior y obtener así beneficios políticos. El gobierno se movilizaba para evitar rumores y reprimir cualquier tipo de acción política al respecto, con el fin de impedir que la oposición diera uso político a los ciclos epidémicos; también ejecutaba con eficiencia una política de información que, desde los Consulados, le permitía estar al corriente acerca del movimiento de los barcos y su situación sanitaria interna; además se desarrolló un conjunto de previsiones nacionales e internacionales altamente benéficas en el control y manejo de los períodos epidémicos.

Los miembros de la familia del TGF-beta regulan diferentes funciones celulares como proliferación, apoptosis, diferenciación, migración, y tienen un papel clave en el desarrollo del organismo. El TGF-beta está implicado en varias patologías humanas, incluyendo desórdenes autoinmunes y vasculares, así como enfermedades fibróticas y cáncer. La activación del receptor del TGF-beta propicia su fosforilación en residuos de serina/treonina y dispara la fosforilación de proteínas efectoras intracelulares (smad, que una vez activas se translocan al núcleo para inducir la transcripción de genes blanco, y así regular procesos y funciones celulares.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a qualidade do leite cru comercializado informalmente em feiras livres no município de Santa Maria, RS. Amostras de leite cru foram adquiridas diretamente dos feirantes em feiras livres e a avaliação da qualidade do leite foi realizada por meio de análises físico-químicas e microbiológicas. Dez amostras de leite cru informal foram analisadas, mas apenas duas não apresentaram alterações em relação à acidez titulável. Dessas duas amostras, os parâmetros de densidade e gordura apresentaram resultado satisfatório, ao contrário do índice crioscópico, teor de proteína e extrato seco desengordurado, que apresentaram valores em desacordo com os padrões estabelecidos. Em relação às análises microbiológicas, 30% das amostras apresentaram contagem de micro-organismos mesófilos superior a 6,0x105 UFC/mL e a presença de coliformes termotolerantes foi confirmada em todas as amostras de leite cru, porém nenhuma apresentava contaminação por Salmonella sp. Considerando que este produto é comercializado de forma clandestina, os resultados obtidos evidenciam a precariedade higiênica do leite comercializado nas feiras livres. O consumo do leite cru sem qualquer tipo de controle higiênico-sanitário expõe a saúde do consumidor a riscos. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The objective of this paper was to evaluate the quality of raw milk informally commercialized in street markets in the city of Santa Maria, RS.

El balso blanco (Heliocarpus americanus L. Sin. H. popayanensis Hook & Arn. es la especie más usada en procesos de clarificación de la panela en Antioquia y las zonas cañeras húmedas colombianas. Pero la extracción de la corteza de árboles obtenidos de la regeneración natural comienza a ser insostenible, por el daño causado a los individuos y la presión creciente a este recurso. La prohibición del uso de sustancias químicas en procesos de clarificación de panela ha aumentado la demanda de la corteza del balso blanco. En este trabajo se estimó el enraizamiento de estacas juveniles de balso blanco, por propagadores de subirrigación. Se realizaron dos experimentos, utilizando ácido anaftalenacético (ANA. En el primero se evaluó el efecto del transporte, cicatrizante y sustrato sobre el enraizamiento de las estacas de balso blanco. El mejor medio de transporte fue en cristales de hidrogel para mantener la humedad de las estacas, sin utilizar cicatrizante y sembrándolas en el sustrato tierra (55 % de enraizamiento. En el segundo se analizó la influencia de la intensidad lumínica y el área foliar en el porcentaje de enraizamiento de las estacas. El más alto enraizamiento se obtuvo con el tratamiento de doble sombra y un área foliar de 20 cm² (25 % de enraizamiento. Aunque los mejores resultados indican un relativo éxito en el uso de medios de enraizamiento, es una primera aproximación para propagar esta especie que necesita ser protegida.The world market of organic edulcorants is an opportunity for “panela”, a basic domestic consumption product that provides important income to rural population.

Uma causa comum de infecções alimentares tem sido a ingestão de produtos avícolas contaminados, crus ou insuficientemente cozidos, fazendo da contaminação de cortes de frango fontes potenciais de Campylobacter spp. para o homem. O objetivo deste estudo foi detectar a presença de Campylobacter e verificar a possível veiculação da campilobacteriose através de cortes e miúdos de frangos resfriados e comercializados para consumo em supermercados de grande porte no estado do Rio de Janeiro. Para isso, foram coletadas 40 amostras resfriadas de frango, das quais 19 foram embaladas pela indústria e 21 manipuladas pelos supermercados, submetendo-as a três metodologias distintas denominadas: in natura, enriquecimento e incubação da água de lavagem. Os resultados obtidos revelaram a presença de espécies de Campylobacter zoonóticas resistentes a antimicrobianos em cortes de frango comercializados para consumo humano, indicando que pedaços e miúdos de frango crus ou insuficientemente cozidos são fontes potenciais de campilobacteriose para a população. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The consumption of chicken meat is common in Brazil because this protein-rich food is low cost, has high nutritional value, and is accessible to the entire population.

El Proyecto de Desarrollo de la Agricultura Zona D, en el cual los agricul­tores blancos se establecieron en el estado de Kwara, fue utilizado como caso de estudio. La información primaria fue obtenida de agricultores blancos así como de agricultores locales considerando su situación pre y post la llegada de los agricultores blancos. Las estadísticas descriptivas y el análisis del presupuesto de cada parcela fueron utilizados para evaluar la información. La mayoría de los agricultores locales (98.63% han transitado hacia el monocultivo desde la llegada de los agricultores blancos a la región. Se ha observado un incremento significativo en la tasa de uso de semillas, el uso de fertilizantes y otros agro­químicos, así como en el trabajo humano por agricultor en el área en comparación con la situación prevaleciente antes de la llegada de los agricultores blancos. El tamaño promedio de sus tierras, la distancia de estas con respecto de sus hogares y uso de tractores se ha reducido de forma importante, mientras que la producción por agricultor se ha incrementa­do. La búsqueda de políticas que tranquilicen a los agricultores locales quienes en ocasio­nes manifiestan su insatisfacción por la forma en que los agricultores blancos han llegado a establecerse en estas tierras resulta imperativa. Esto permitirá lograr un desarrollo positivo y sustentable. Estas políticas pueden ser desarrolladas a través de un enfoque participativo en el desarrollo de la agricultura en el área. Este enfoque también podría resultar relevante en otras regiones del mundo que presentan situaciones similares.

Dalla prima notizia relativa ad una proposta di distacco, agli inizi del Novecento, fino al definitivo rifiuto di tale intervento nel 1916, i documenti rinvenuti rivelano alcuni passaggi di un lungo dibattito che vide  opinioni e personalità diverse confrontarsi - e spesso contrapporsi - sul complesso tema del restauro. E’ grazie alla ferma decisione con cui il Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione ne impedì il distacco se, ancora oggi, è possibile apprezzare l’affresco del Filotesio nella sua «sede naturale, nel proprio luogo di origine, dove ess[o] ha[nno] un significato ed un valore assolutamente speciali» (Icilio Bocci. The consultation of some fonds held in the archives of Ancona and Ascoli Piceno allowed to partially reconstruct the conservative vicissitude of the fine fresco painted by Cola dell’Amatrice in the refectory of the Annunziata convent in Ascoli Piceno. From the first news regarding a proposal for the fresco’s detachment, until the definitive rejection of such operation in 1916, founded documents reveal some steps of a long controversy that saw different opinions and personalities contending – and often opposing – on the complex issue of restoration.

A microscopia direta durante a gravidez deve ser valorizada e reconhecida como método propedêutico capaz de diagnosticar, de forma imediata, 90% dos casos de vaginose bacteriana, candidose e tricomonose. MÉTODOS: estudo prospectivo em 216 gestantes, selecionadas em ambulatório de pré-natal no período de 30 de outubro de 2001 a 12 de novembro de 2002. Foram colhidas duas amostras do conteúdo existente no fundo de saco vaginal posterior e depositadas em lâminas de vidro para microscopia. Sobre a primeira e a segunda amostra eram colocadas uma gota de NaCl a 0,9% e uma de KOH a 10%, respectivamente. Adicionalmente, em todas as grávidas determinou-se o pH vaginal e realizaram-se os testes de produção das aminas com odores de pescado. O material era examinado ao microscópio em aumentos de 100 vezes, 400 vezes e excepcionalmente 1000 vezes. Foram realizados esfregaços cervicovaginais para citologia corada pelo método de Papanicolaou. A correlação entre os resultados dos métodos citológicos empregados foi realizada pelo cálculo do coeficiente kappa, que avalia a concordância para variáveis qualitativas. RESULTADOS: o encontro nos esfregaços a fresco de flora bacteriana normal foi de 51,8, representando o aspecto citológico mais observado e sem correspondência com os 3,7% apurados na microscopia corada. No exame citológico direto foram observados 30,9% de vaginose bacteriana e 7,9% de candidose. Todavia, no Papanicolaou não foi encontrada tal equivalência, sendo as porcentagens de 0,7 e 24,3%, respectivamente. A ausência de correlação no diagnóstico de colpite bacteriana inespecífica na microscopia direta (17,5% e corada (51,3% talvez deva-se ao subdiagnóstico de vaginose

O objetivo desta investigação foi avaliar as alterações de cor de feijão vagem fresco e processado após aplicação de concentrações crescentes de cálcio via absorção radicular. O feijão vagem cultivar UEL 1 foi cultivado com aplicação de concentrações crescentes de cálcio via solução nutritiva contendo 0, 75 , 150 e 300 mL L-1 de cálcio em substrato de areia grossa. A cor das vagens ao natural e enlatadas foram avaliadas por colorimetria de três estímulos, e os resultados foram expressos no sistema Hunter. As vagens ao natural apresentaram-se mais claras e amarelas quando foi adicionado cálcio à solução nutritiva. O calor empregado no processo de enlatamento teve efeito pronunciado na redução da luminosidade e na cor verde, mesmo com o aumento na quantidade de cálcio nas vagens.The color in vegetables is one of the main quality attributes observed by the consumer and it is influenced by intrinsic characteristics and canning process. This research meant to investigate the effect of increasing calcium concentrations applied to a nutrient solution on physical measurements of the color of snap bean pods.This experiment was carried out wtih the cultivar UEL 1 grown in coarse sand with nutrient solution supplied at the following levels of calcium: 0, 75, 150 and 300 mL L-1. Fresh pods were analysed for calcium content. The fresh and canned pods were evaluated for color with tristimulus colorimetry and data were expressed according to the Hunter system. The fresh pods were lighter and yellowisher when calcium was added to the nutrient solution. The heat used for the canning process had a significant effect on reducing lightness and greeness, even with the greater amounts of calcium in the pods.

Further, cheese should be transported, stored and sold in an appropriate manner in order to avoid, among other things, the incorporation of extraneous materials (filth of biological origin or otherwise, in contravention of the relevant food legislation. The aim of the study was to evaluate the hygienic conditions of "prato", "mussarela", and "mineiro" cheeses sold at the street food markets in the city of S. Paulo, Brazil. MATERIALS AND METHOD: Forty-seven samples of each of the three types of cheese were collected during the period from March, 1993 to February, 1994. The Latin square was used as a statistical model for sampling and random selection of the street markets from which to collect the cheese samples. The samples were analysed for the presence of extraneous matters outside for which purpose the samples were washed and filtered and inside, for which the methodology of enzymathic digestion of the sample with pancreatine, followed by filtering,was used. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Of the 141 samples analysed, 75.9% exhibited at least one sort of extraneous matters. For the "prato" and "mussarela" cheeses, the high number of contaminated samples was due mainly to extraneous matters present inside the cheese, whereas in the "mineiro" cheese, besides the internal filth, 100% of the samples had external filth.INTRODUÇÃO: Os queijos devem ser produzidos com matéria-prima de boa qualidade, processados em condições de higiene e transportados, armazenados e comercializados de forma adequada, a fim de evitar, entre outros, a incorporação de matérias estranhas (sujidades de origem biológica ou não, as quais não são permitidas pela legislação bromatológica em vigor.

It is to recount Fray Manuel Grijalvo’s life as a religious priest who occupied key positions in the Augustinian Order and in the Philippine church as bishop of Nueva Caceres (now Naga in the first half of the 19th century, at a time when both the Order and the church in the Philippines were undergoing transition. This succinct narration of an Augustinian bishop’s lifeopens a window through which one can appreciate Philippine history in the 19th century. Although brief, the summary of Grijalvo’s years in the Philippines, spent in Manila and Nueva Caceres, gives a relatively complete view of the challenges that the Catholic Church was facing in this era, both within the Augustinian Order and in the Diocese of Nueva Caceres. This is so because Grijalvo was an Augustinian missionary who also occupied key posts as parish priest in Batangas towns (1814 -1818 and in Pasig (1833 -1839 and 1831-1847. He was also procurator and prior of the Order between 1818 and 1832. In1848, he was appointed bishop of Nueva Caceres, a post he occupied until his death in 1861. His life, therefore, encapsulates the struggles and challenges of the Philippine Catholic Church and the Spanish colonial government.

    Full Text Available Há vinte anos, o Brasil perdia uma das mais expressivas vozes de nossa literatura contemporânea. Caio Fernando Abreu era um autor camaleônico, intenso, com uma escrita que nos coloca em suspensão, em confronto com nossos próprios demônios e com aqueles que habitam o mundo caótico que nos rodeia. A literatura de Caio F. passeia do rural ao urbano, do sublime ao grotesco, da crítica cultural ao lado mais íntimo do ser humano. Nesse trânsito, ela rompe até mesmo com tais dicotomias, fluida, repleta de nuances. Poucos autores souberam encenar de forma tão pertinente as várias faces dos sujeitos e da sociedade brasileira nas três últimas décadas do século XX. (...

    Full Text Available El objetivo fue integrar los conocimientos sobre factores genéticos y ambientales que inciden en la producción de leche (PL de la coneja y su efecto en la supervivencia y crecimiento de la camada. Las investigaciones sugieren que la PL se relaciona con el crecimiento y supervivencia del gazapo durante las primeras tres semanas de vida. En cuanto a los aspectos genéticos, se ha estimado que existen diferencias en PL entre razas puras y sus cruzas, además de que el índice de herencia (h2 para PL en Nueva Zelanda Blanco, California y sus cruzas reciprocas es de 0.12%, lo cual establece un mayor efecto ambiental sobre PL. Al parecer la PL alcanza su máxima producción (219.6 g con 12 gazapos/camada y su pico de producción se alcanza al tercer parto y disminuye a partir del quinto parto. Sin embargo, la PL es determinada por: la condición fisiológica de la coneja -lactante-gestante (130 g/día o lactante-no gestante (141 g/día-; el número de pezones, conejas con 10 pezones produjeron 10% más leche que aquellas con 8; la temperatura ambiente, por cada grado centígrado por arriba de 20°C la PL disminuye 7.7 g/día. Los principales factores que influyen sobre la PL de la coneja no son atribuibles a esta. Por lo tanto, es importante controlar la naturaleza aleatoria de la mayoría de los factores no-genéticos que afectan a PL.

The total revision was 513 clinical records of patients treated for the first time in the Urinary Incontinence Unit in the established period. 228 of the cases were excluded. A final sample of 285 patients aged 76 years on average is studied, the predominance is the female sex and the state is widowhood, schooling is Aged 6 and residing in San Jose. In addition, partial dependent patients BLFA (Basic Life Activities) and IALF (Instrumental Activities of Life) are included, in normal cognitive condition according to schooling by MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination) and with risk of depression. As comorbidity they have presented mainly AHT (Arterial hypertension), DM (Diabetes Mellitus) and depression with associated obesity. The patients studied have consumed at least 2 medications simultaneously and usually have had a previous surgical history. Women who have had gynecological obstetric records of pregnancies and births were found to be unrelated to some type of incontinence. Patients have presented defects of the pelvic floor, such as cystocele and rectocele, in men increased prostate size. The most prevalent urinary incontinence has been the mixed, finding association by gender, in women is given more mixed urinary incontinence, followed by stress urinary incontinence; In men, urgent urinary incontinence and urinary incontinence due to overflow. Patients are sent to treatment with electrostimulation of pelvic floor and completed sessions, have shown an improvement in incontinence and quality of life. A more detailed evaluation of the older adult and to evaluate urinary incontinence could give greater results of the capture of patients with positive repercussion in the patient's quality of life.

El área de estudio corresponde al Cerro Musún, una reserva protegida bajo co-manejo, principal fuente abastecedora de agua potable a la ciudad Río Blanco. La metodología implicó: elaboración de balance hídrico para determinar la oferta hídrica, identificación de zonas críticas para la estimación de los costos ambientales; valoración contingente para estimar la disposición a pagar de la población (DAP, y revisión del marco legal e institucional que regula los recursos hídricos y las facultades de los municipios para la gestión ambiental. Los resultados del estudio indican que los problemas de la microcuenca son de calidad y no de cantidad de agua. Los costos ambientales ($26,980 dólares/año, permitirían implementar un plan de manejo para reubicación de bebederos, reforestación, letrinificación y medidas para la reconversión productiva de áreas degradadas circundantes, con sistemas agroforestales y silvopastoriles. Los ingresos esperados por DAP ($28,100 dólares/año, permiten cubrir totalmente los costos de conservación; se concluye entonces, que el Fondo Ambiental municipal resulta ser social y económicamente viable de implementar.

Os valores de vitamina A dos leites foram calculados com e sem a consideração do beta-caroteno. A maior contribuição deste nutriente no valor de vitamina A esteve entre os leites em pó, cerca de 17% em uma das marcas. Os altos teores das vitamina A e E encontrados em alguns leites, indicam que os mesmos provavelmente receberam adição destas vitaminas, não trazendo, entretanto, tal informação no rótulo. A análise de vitaminas nestes produtos indica a necessidade de maior controle de qualidade dos mesmos.The amount of retinol, beta-carotene, alpha -tocopherol in powder, pasteurized and sterilized milk, comercialized in the city of São Paulo, were analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography.

    Full Text Available This study examines trends in Black student achievement and in the Black-White achievement gap over the period 2000 to 2007, employing data from ten states drawn from the NAEP Grade 8 mathematics assessments. Results are obtained for three levels of aggregation: the state, school poverty stratum within the state, and schools within poverty stratum. In addition, information on the ten states’ education policies for the period 1998 to 2005 was compiled. States relative ranks on the overall strength of their reform efforts were compared to their relative ranks with respect to their success in improving Black student achievement and in reducing the Black- White achievement gap. This study constitutes an extension of earlier work that considered the same issues for the period 1992 to 2000 and, thus, offers a unique comparison between the pre-NCLB era and the present one. Although the ten states certainly differed in their outcomes, the general picture at all three levels of aggregation is quite clear: The achievement gaps are substantial and the introduction of federally mandated high stakes test-based accountability through No Child Left Behind has had a very modest impact on the rates of improvement for Black students and on the pace of reductions in the achievement gaps between Black students and White students. Moreover, there was only a weak association between states’ policy rankings and their rankings related to test results. It appears there is a need for both fresh thinking on education reform and a more concerted effort to collect comprehensive longitudinal information on states' education policies.

    Full Text Available Se determinó el riesgo de contaminación microbiológica o química en cada uno de los procesos de los sistemas de producción de hortalizas de consumo fresco, en una población de 164 empresas agrícolas del Valle Central de Costa Rica. La cuantificación del riesgo se calculó por medio de una encuesta de 46 ítems realizada a los gerentes de las empresas incluidas en el estudio. Las respuestas de los 46 ítems fueron agrupadas según el proceso de producción; se utilizó la fórmula para el cálculo del riesgo de contaminación validada por los autores en otra investigación y se obtuvo el valor de riesgo por proceso. Se calcularon los resultados del riesgo de contaminación microbiológica o química para el proceso de preparación de terreno y siembra, manejo cultural del cultivo, factor humano que realiza el manejo cultural del cultivo, control fitosanitario, cosecha, empaque y para el factor humano ligado al empaque. Los resultados del análisis de riesgo indican que el factor humano que participa en el empaque obtiene la calificación de riesgo más alta, seguido por el proceso de manejo cultural del cultivo; luego aparece el proceso de cosecha. En todos los procesos donde se cuantificó el riesgo, los resultados presentan valores cercanos o superiores a 50 en una escala de riesgo de 0 a 100. Estos resultados deben alertar a los productores y consumidores de hortalizas para consumo fresco de la población analizada. Se observó además el efecto del comprador sobre los valores de riesgo en el empaque; cuando el productor es proveedor de una cadena de supermercados, los valores de riesgo disminuyen al compararlos con productores que no son proveedores de esas cadenas.

    Full Text Available Maytenus ilicifolia Mart. Ex Reissek belongs to the Celastraceae family and is used for the treatment of gastritis and gastric ulcer. The purpose of this study was to analyze the quality of products containing Maytenus ilicifolia traded in the city of Umuarama – PR.. For this purpose, 31 of its samples were bought from herb dealers, pharmacies and supermarkets. Eleven samples were in capsule form, 14 ‘in natura’, 2 in sachet form, one in powder form, and 3 in fluid extract form. The samples were analyzed considering several aspects: packaging evaluation, moisture content, total ashes content, purity evaluation and chromatographic analysis. Results obtained for moisture content showed that only 10.7% of the samples were below the allowed value concerning water content determination (limited at 6% and 67.8% were in accordance with the total ashes content (limited at 8%. The thin layer chromatography (TLC showed that only 29% of the samples were indentified as M. ilicifolia, due to the presence of catechins and epicatechins. Over 50% of the analyzed samples showed high content of impurities. In conclusion, most analyzed samples showed to be inappropriate for consumption, either for the presence of contaminants,or for the ashes and moisture contents, besides inappropriate packaging.

Patagifer lamothei n. sp. can be distinguished from P. bilobus (Rudolphi, 1819, P. brygooi Richard, 1964, P. consimilis Dietz, 1909, and P. fraternus Johnston, 1917, where the testes are close together (contiguous to nearly contiguous, the ovary is close to the anterior testis (a distance that is less than the length of the ovary, and the posttesticular space is less extensive, by having the testes separated from each other by a distance approximately equal to or greater than the length of the ovary, the ovary positioned about the length or longer of the ovary from the anterior testis, and by having a more extensive posttesticular space. In addition, the ovary of the new species is located just ahead of midbody rather than being at midbody, as is seen in P. bilobus, P. fraternus, and P. vioscai Lumsden, 1962, or below midbody, as is the case in P. brygooi and P. consimilis. The new species is most like P. simarai Nigam, 1944 in the similar distance between testes, position of the ovary, and the posttesticular space (30-36% of the body length. The new species differs from P. simarai by having a smaller body size, a smaller oral sucker and pharynx, a smaller acetabulum, ovary, testes, cirrus sac, and smaller spines on the margin of the collar, but larger corner spines, and the ovary of the new species is located immediately anterior to the midbody, while in P. simarai it is located well ahead of the midbody.En un estudio de endohelmintos de aves de los humedales de la costa de Texas, se recolectaron 12 ejemplares de una especie no descrita de Patagifer Dietz, 1909 (Echinostomatidae: Nephrostominae en 2 ibis blancos de 8 examinados

Twenty one samples [flaxseed oil (6, evening primrose (5, safflower (8, borage (1, and black currant (1] purchased from local markets or collected by the health surveillance agency were analyzed. The fatty acids and vitamin E contents were analyzed by gas chromatography with flame ionization detector and liquid chromatography with UV detector, respectively. Nine samples were adulterated (5 samples of safflower oil, 3 of flaxseed oil, and one of evening primrose. Among them, 3 flaxseed and 2 safflower oil samples were probably adulterated by the addition of soybean oil. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA was found in two safflower oils samples although the sale of oils with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA is not permitted by the National Health Surveillance Agency in Brazil (ANVISA. Only two samples presented all values in compliance with nutrition labeling (one safflower oil sample and one borage oil sample.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT: In the frontier drawn between the Argentine State and the different aborigine groups of the Chaco region during the second half of the XIX century, different half-breed social identities that escape simple dichotomies between whites and Indians, civilized people and savage people were formed. The historical practice of considering social actors as white Indians (deserting soldiers, fugitive criminals, political exiles and refugees, as well asmerchants who were incorporated to the Indian groups provides a privileged space for anthropological observation which has been relatively little explored until now. This paper investigates the historical reasons that motivated the migration of Creoles and recovers the perspective of social actors who took a leading role in the facts studied.RESUMEN: En la frontera establecida entre el Estado argentino y las distintas parcialidades aborígenes de la región del Chaco durante la segunda parte del siglo XIX, se configuraron identidades étnicas mestizas que escapaban a la simple esquematización de blancos e indios, civilizados y salvajes. La praxis histórica de los actores sociales como los indios-blancos (soldados desertores, criminales fugitivos de la ley, perseguidos y refugiados políticos ycomerciantes que fueron incorporados dentro de los grupos indígenas proporciona un espacio privilegiado de reflexión antropológica poco explorado hasta el momento. En el presente artículo nos proponemos determinar las causas históricas que motivaron la migración de loscriollos y recuperar la perspectiva de los actores sociales que protagonizaron los hechos estudiados.

Dentre os aleirodídeos, Aleurothrixus floccosus Maskell destacou-se dos demais, com média populacional igual a 74,06%. Aleurotrachelus cruzi Cassino obteve média de 52,6%. Entre as cochonilhas destacaram-se Selenaspidus articulatus (Morgan (23,96% e Pinnaspis aspidistrae (Signoret (19,38%. O psilídeo Diaphorina citri Kuwayama obteve média de 52,6%, sendo a segunda espécie com maior média. Os pulgões Toxoptera citricida (Kirkaldy e Toxoptera aurantii (Boyer, somente ocorreram em período de brotação e floração, com média populacional de 7,6% e 6,25%, respectivamente. Quanto à diversidade das espécies o período com maior diversidade, ocorreu na 1ª quinzena de setembro de 2003 (H’= 0,964, coincidindo com a menor dominância (D= 0,200, e menor diversidade na 1º quinzena de maio de 2003 (H’= 0,657 e maior dominância (D= 0,522.

That meta-analysis observed significant effects of well endowed and well-researched programs, but it did not account for race/ethnicity. This article synthesizes 34 cohort or quasi-experimental outcomes of studies that incorporated the policy-critical characteristic of race/ethnicity. Findings: compared with matched traditional schools, the black-white achievement gap narrowed significantly more among students in CSR schools. In addition, the aggregate effects were large, substantially to completely eliminating the achievement gap between African American and non-Hispanic white students in elementary and middle schools. Title I policies before or after the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 seem to have had essentially no impact on the black-white achievement gap. Curricular and testing mandates along with the threat of sanctions without concomitant resource supports seem to have failed. This study suggests that educational achievement inequities need not be America’s destiny. It seems that they could be eliminated through concerted political will and ample resource commitments to evidence-based educational programs.

    The laser-based techniques have been shown to be a very powerful tool for artworks characterization and are used in the field of cultural heritage for the offered advantages of minimum invasiveness, in situ applicability and high sensitivity. Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy, in particular, has been applied in this field to many different kinds of ancient materials with successful results. In this work, a fragment of a Roman wall painting from the archaeological area of Pompeii has been investigated by LIBS. The sample elemental composition resulting from LIBS measurements suggested the presence of certain pigments. The ratio of the intensities of different lines related to some characteristic elements is proposed as an indicator for pigment recognition. The depth profiling permitted to put in evidence the presence of successive paint layers with different compositions. A comparison with the results obtained by the microscopy inspection of the sample has been done.

  19. Cape Blanco wind energy feasibility study. Terrestrial ecology

    Science.gov (United States)

    1986-04-01

    The project site is a series of grassland bench terraces on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean. Because the site has a long history of use for sheep grazing, the vegetation is mainly pasture grasses (64 percent of the site), with patches of mixed forest cover (26 percent), and wetlands (10 percent) in the ravine dividing the site. Because of the open nature of the site, the proposed arrangement of the wind turbines and relatively little need for site modification, there are few environmental concerns. The main concerns are the potential for bird collisions with the turbines and associated apparatus and threatened and endangered bird species. The expected impacts of the project on vegetation, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and fish have been determined to be minor. A series of calculations were made using formulas from the literature to estimate bird kills from collisions with the wind turbines and associated apparatus. Less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the vulnerable migrating bird population was determined to be subject to death by collision. Thus, impacts to birds were also determined to be insignificant. The other major concern is the potential impacts of the project on five species of birds from the area that are recognized as threatened or endangered. The site provides no unique or especially important habitat for any of the five species. The likelihood of project impacts to any of them is low.

    A fine target of deuterium on a tantalum plate by the absorption method is obtained. In order to obtain the de gasification temperature an induction generator of high frequency is used and the deuterium pass is regulated by means of a palladium valve. Two vacuum measures are available, one to measure the high vacuum in the de gasification process of the tantalum plate and the other, for low vacuum, to measure the deuterium inlet in the installation and the deuterium pressure change in the installation after the absorption in the tantalum plate. A target of 48 {mu} gr/cm{sup 2} thick is obtained. (Author) 1 refs.

    Full Text Available By noting the end of the dualism between public and private law, between state and international law and between goods and services, the article comments and interprets Ugo Mattei’s doctrine about new forms of property. Cognitive transformations, both technological and social, do not prelude to a new and different juridical intermediation as guarantee of the communal regime of goods. These new forms of property, when confronted with the domain that private economic property continues to exercise, do not announce neither the dissolution of the monopoly of state coercion, nor the advent of a merely administrative management.

    Full Text Available Pogostemon cablin (Lamiaceae has been widely used in traditional medicine. In this study, the antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of leaves from P. cablin extracts were investigated. The water extracts had the highest total phenolic content 116.88±0.48 mg gallic acid equivalent/g of dry plant extract. Nevertheless, high levels of total flavonoid content were found in ethanolic extracts 280.12±2.04 mg quercetin equivalent/g of dry plant extract. The highest antioxidant activities were found for the ethanolic extract (IC50=18±0.90, 20±0.24 μg/mL by DPPH and ABTS scavenging assays, respectively. Both extracts showed moderate inhibition of superoxide inhibition (O2∙- and nitric oxide (NO production in concentration-dependent manner. Antibacterial activity was calculated by disk diffusion, minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC, and minimum bacterial concentration (MBC. The ethanolic extract had the greatest activity against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin sensitive S. aureus, and Streptococcus pyogenes with zone diameters of 11.67±1.53, 10.33±2.52, and 10.33±1.15 mm, respectively. The corresponding MIC and MBCs were 5, 0.625, and 0.039 mg/mL. P. cablin extracts contain antioxidant and antibacterial properties that should be exploited for possible clinical application.

    Full Text Available The pictures discovered in Ravenna at Maioli Palace (Ravenna have been subjected to an analytical survey, both during and after the works of a restoration performed at the Restoration Laboratory. This building, set during the time of the Venetian rule in the town of Romagna (1447-1509, belonged for centuries to the noble Maioli Family, that had come from Faenza. The walls, taken into consideration, show four "pictured levels", i.e. four different times about when the four pictures have been performed. The first one refers to the construction period of the building, the second one is the one studied, the third one can be connected to the Seventeenth century, according to the stylistic details of the Pompeian period. While the forth one is dated back to the end of the Eighteenth century, since the decorative part is typical of that time (with "decorative part" we refer to the "stencil" decorations, i.e. applications of pictures, inks or colours by means of special little masks. The experimental study carried out on two kinds of pictured samples (chosen according to their kind of pigments i.e.: yellow and black as focused on: the colorimetry, in order to determine the components of the chromaticity; the fluorescence spectrometry to X ray, to characterize the pigments used; the thermal analysis with the goal of finding out the kind of plaster; the video-microscopy to get documentary and cognitive purposes. A systematic analysis of the pictures was justified both by the will of finding the pictorial technique of the painter, and by the wish to be able to date them back to the period of their creation, since at the moment, there is no documentation about these issues.

    The aim of this study is to approach the possibilities of stimulated infrared thermography in dimensional characterization of defects situated in mural paintings. For this purpose, it is suggested to proceed in two stages. First, an in situ longitudinal thermal-diffusivity measurement is developed. Then the characterization of the depth of the studied defect by means of an extended photothermal analysis and a comparison between theory and experiment is carried out. In this article is shown that this approach allows a good estimate of the depth of a plastazote inclusion in a partial copy of the “Saint Christophe” of the Campana collection in the Louvre Museum.

    The objective of this work is to approach the possibilities of stimulated infrared thermography in dimensional characterization of defects situated in mural paintings. Towards this end, we have proceeded in two stages. Initially, we have developed, with the help of a point source photothermal analysis, an in situ measurement of the longitudinal thermal diffusivity parameter. Then, we have proceeded to the characterization of the depth of the studied defect, by means of a wide photothermal analysis and of a confrontation between theory and experiment. In this article, we present these two measurement techniques and show that the approach allows a good estimation of the depth of an inclusion of plastazote in a copy of the "Saint Christophe" of the "Campana" collection of the "Louvre Museum".

    Full Text Available The Wheels of the Sky of Suceviţa. Brief Multidisciplinary Investigation over a Decorative Artistic Element of the Interior Fresco of the Church The Resurrection of Jesus Christ of the Monastery of Suceviţa. In the study Suceviţa’s wheels of the sky I have undertaken a multidisciplinary investigation of some ornamental elements like the stars painted on the inside wall painting of “Învierea Domnului” Church of Suceviţa Monastery and which are quite common elements at first sight in the sacred art of the Romanian Middle Ages. These stars are spectacular due to their size, spontaneity and quantity of design in the „sky” and maybe, especially due to the structure and the painting manner chosen by painters. Suceviţa’s sky is unique among all the important churches and monasteries built by voivodes between the 15th and 17th century in the North of Moldova: the painters Ioan and Sofronie painted symmetrically lots of big stars with angles formed of six rays as thin from center to the end. By using a nail and a wire or a compass they sketched equally spaced circles on which they traced the angles of the stars. After the recent restoration we do not know for sure if the circles were also golden circles as the stars but with the lapse of time they have become noticeable and now we have the so-called wheels of the sky. “Suceviţa’s sky” uniqueness lies not only in the technical innovation regarding star representation but also in its ability to raise some questions: are the stars inscribed in the circle pure ornamental elements taken from somewhere or are they symbols within the context of the monumental assembly? Is their source of inspiration only technical or also ideological? Why take pains to sketch some circles which would become invisible? Could this have been sketched only to exercise a new technique ? If they sketched the circles only as a guide mark in order to paint the stars symmetrically, why did they leave the circles

A espécie conhecida na literatura e comercializada como abajurú é Chysobalanus icaco L., que apresenta propriedades hipoglicemiantes comprovadas por pesquisas farmacológicas e é utilizada pela população para este fim; no entanto, verificou-se, nesse mercado, a venda quase exclusiva de E. rotundifolia, com esse nome popular e mesma propriedade. Até o momento não existem dados farmacológicos para essa espécie. Ambas são nativas e ocorrem, predominantemente, nas restingas litorâneas do estado do Rio de Janeiro. A atribuição da atividade hipoglicemiante a E. rotundifolia pode indicar uma correlação, por parte dos erveiros, com a farmacologia de outras espécies de Myrtaceae. Questões relacionadas à fiscalização ambiental bem como desconhecimento e coleta equivocada podem também estar envolvidos nesse processo.

    López, M.a Carmen

    2000-12-01

    Full Text Available We determined the presence of Ca, Mg, Mn, Zn, Se and Cr in 64 samples of olive virgin oil, olive oil and marc oil produced in Andalusia, southern Spain. Flame atomization atomic absorption spectroscopy was used for Ca and Mg, and the electrothermal atomization mode was used for Mn, Zn, Se and Cr. Samples were previously ashed with HNO3 and V2O5. Analytical conditions were optimized to control for interference and to obtain appropriate accuracy and precision factors. The method is potentially useful for quality control of olive oils. The concentrations ranged from 0.055 to 2.725 mg/kg for Ca; 0.300 to 5.300 mg/kg for Mg, 13.213 to 296.356 mg/kg for Mn, 8.758 to 36.575 mg/kg for Zn, undetectable to 178.515 mg/kg for Se, and undetectable to 41.510 mg/kg for Cr. No statistically significant differences were found between the three types of oil in the concentrations of these elements. There were significant correlations between the concentrations of the pairs Se-Cr, Mn-Cr, Mg-Zn, Ca-Zn and Ca-Cr. Because of the high intake of olive oil in our setting, this food can be considered a major source of essential elemental nutrients.En el presente trabajo se ha determinado la presencia de Ca, Mg, Mn, Zn, Se y Cr en 64 muestras de aceite de oliva virgen, de oliva y de orujo de oliva producidos en Andalucía. La técnica analítica empleada ha sido la espectroscopía de absorción atómica con atomización de llama para Ca y Mg, y con atomización electrotérmica para Mn, Zn, Se y Cr. Las muestras han sido sometidas previamente a mineralización ácida con HNO3 y V2O5. Se han optimizado las condiciones analíticas que permiten controlar interferencias y obtener factores de exactitud y precisión adecuados. El método propuesto resulta útil en control de calidad de aceites. Los valores obtenidos de Ca oscilan entre 0.055-2.725 mg/kg, de Mg entre 0.300-5.300 mg/kg, de Mn 13.213-296.356 mg/kg, de Zn entre 8.758-36.575 mg/kg, de Se entre no detectable -178.515 mg/kg y de Cr entre no detectable -41.510 mg/kg. No se pueden establecer diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre los 3 tipos de aceite, en base a su contenido en estos elementos. Se ha encontrado correlación estadísticamente significativa entre los niveles de Se-Cr, Mn-Cr, Mg-Zn, Ca-Zn y Ca-Cr. El aceite de oliva, dado su elevado consumo en nuestra región, puede considerarse fuente de elementos esenciales.

Os baixos teores de tiamina dificultaram sua quantificação, principalmente nos leites pasteurizados. O uso do detector de fluorescência contribuiu para a quantificação da piridoxina na maior parte dos leites analisados. A riboflavina, por sua vez, presente com teores mais abundantes, pode ser analisada em todas as amostras. A tiamina esteve com teores bem acima dos declarados em algumas marcas de leite em pó, estando a riboflavina com teores abaixo do informado em uma delas. Em algumas marcas de leite em pó e esterilizados, a piridoxina foi encontrada com teores bem abaixo do informado.

  5. Weathering of the Rio Blanco Quartz Diorite, Luquillo Mountains, Puerto Rico: Coupling Oxidation, Dissolution, And Fracturing

    In the mountainous Rio Icacos watershed in northeastern Puerto Rico, quartz diorite bedrock weathers spheroidally, producing a 0.2-2 m thick zone of partially weathered rock layers (∼2.5 cm thickness each) called rindlets, which form concentric layers around corestones. Spheroidal fracturing has been modeled to occur when a weathering reaction with a positive ΔV of reaction builds up elastic strain energy. The rates of spheroidal fracturing and saprolite formation are therefore controlled by the rate of the weathering reaction. Chemical, petrographic, and spectroscopic evidence demonstrates that biotite oxidation is the most likely fracture-inducing reaction. This reaction occurs with an expansion in d (0 0 1) from 10.0 to 10.5 (angstrom), forming 'altered biotite'. Progressive biotite oxidation across the rindlet zone was inferred from thin sections and gradients in K and Fe(II). Using the gradient in Fe(II) and constraints based on cosmogenic age dates, we calculated a biotite oxidation reaction rate of 8.2 x 10 -14 mol biotite m -2 s -1 . Biotite oxidation was documented within the bedrock corestone by synchrotron X-ray microprobe fluorescence imaging and XANES. X-ray microprobe images of Fe(II) and Fe(III) at 2 (micro)m resolution revealed that oxidized zones within individual biotite crystals are the first evidence of alteration of the otherwise unaltered corestone. Fluids entering along fractures lead to the dissolution of plagioclase within the rindlet zone. Within 7 cm surrounding the rindlet-saprolite interface, hornblende dissolves to completion at a rate of 6.3 x 10 -13 mol hornblende m -2 s -1 : the fastest reported rate of hornblende weathering in the field. This rate is consistent with laboratory-derived hornblende dissolution rates. By revealing the coupling of these mineral weathering reactions to fracturing and porosity formation we are able to describe the process by which the quartz diorite bedrock disaggregates and forms saprolite. In the corestone, biotite oxidation induces spheroidal fracturing, facilitating the influx of fluids that react with other minerals, dissolving plagioclase and chlorite, creating additional porosity, and eventually dissolving hornblende and precipitating secondary minerals. The thickness of the resultant saprolite is maintained at steady state by a positive feedback between the denudation rate and the weathering advance rate driven by the concentration of pore water O 2 at the bedrock-saprolite interface.

    The 60 Co γ-irradiation on culture in vitro of Pogostemon cablin is studied to breed new variety. The explants used for 60 Co γ-irradiation were the leaf segments, nodular stem segments, stem segments and root tips from Pogostemon cablin. The media for culture in vitro were MT basal media containing 0.05mg/L BA. As irradiation dosage increased, the mortality of different explants from Pogostemon cablin increased. The irradiation dosage of LD50 for leaf segments, nodular stem segments and stem segments were 72, 64 and 66Gy, respectively, which were deduced from the regression equation. As the irradiation dosage increased, the ability of the plant regeneration of the explants decreased. 60 Co γ-irradiation could make the explants damage or die. Irradiation could inhibit the regeneration of explants from Pogostemon cablin obviously. The changes in the appearance of the regenerated plants were also observed. (authors)

    This supplement to "The Family Planning Manager" presents a case example and four related discussion questions to advance administrative staff's ability to prepare a pilot project proposal and budget. In the hypothetical scenario, the Ministry of Health has requested proposals for projects from each region that would increase contraceptive prevalence and reduce discontinuation by a national average of 15%. Outlined, in this document, is a two-year project that would use outreach workers to visit the homes of recent discontinuers and attempt to understand their concerns. The goal was to improve the health of mothers and children in the region by reducing the discontinuation rate among first-time users of contraceptives, while the objective was to reduce the discontinuation rate among first-time users from 27% to 15% by the end of the project. Also developed is a budget for the first year of the project that itemizes expenditures for salaries and wages, benefits, fees, general administration, travel and associated expenses, supplies and equipment, purchased services, and education and training. Finally, the supplement presents a sample summary sheet for the proposed project.

    Demonstration of massive fracturing to provide gas production from tight gas sands in the Piceance Basin was the objective of this jointly funded Mobil DOE project. This effort has been at least partially successful. The uppermost interval fractured, the Ohio Creek formation at 7324 to 7476 ft, appears to be commercially viable. The remaining sequence to total depth of 10,800 ft may also be commercially attractive, depending on fractured well costs, gas prices and the risk of failure to achieve production capacity equal to, or greater than, that achieved in the present well. Prior work was performed by Mobil in the Brush Creek Unit, Mesa County, Colorado. One well, Brush Creek 1-25, was drilled to 10,330 ft and given two massive fracturing treatments before the well was plugged and abandoned as noncommercial. It was concluded that formation permeability was too low to justify additional work in the Brush Creek Unit. Piceance Creek well F31-13G was drilled to 10,800 ft. Nine zones were tested in the Mesaverde and Ohio Creek formations between 7324 to 10,680 ft. Six massive fracturing treatments were performed covering 7 of the 9 intervals. Average first-year flow potential of the well is estimated at 2.9 MMCF/day with 1.1 MMCF/day of this amount attributed to the uppermost zone.

    Full Text Available The fresh cheese is a dairy derivative with high moisture content properties textural as firmness, elasticity and viscoelastic, which are determined by the spatial arrangement of its components and modifications during the process. We assessed mechanical properties of fresh cheeses made from the milk of Buffalo and cow. This was a test of uniaxial compression between parallel plates of cheese cut into cube with 2 cm. The cheese was compressed at a rate of deformation of 20 cm/min up to 40% of its height and go at that same speed, covering a complete cycle of compression-decompression. To determine the deformability, compressive stress and the degree of elastic recovery modules. In another trial, each cheese is compressed and allowed its relaxation during 300s. The model was adjusted for standardized Peleg and Maxwell using non-linear regression. According to the results we can say that the cheese made from buffalo milk presents values of the elastic modulus, deformability module and the degree of elastic recovery exceeding the made from cow's milk. The cheese is much more elastic and lower hardness.

Control of this pest in storehouses is carried out with the massive use of pesticides. With the object of finding an alternative method of control, an electron microscope study was made of the mid intestine of adults and larvae. Detected in the mid intestine of adult. P. truncatus was the presence of a peritrophic membrane. This membrane is formed by an irregular grid composed of various layers which are absent in the mid intestine of the last larval stage of P. truncatus. This indicates that formation of the peritrophic membrane take place mainly during the pupal stage, for which P. truncatus may be controlled biologically by using transgenic plants with the specific information to interfere in the synthesis of this membrane.Prostephanus truncatus (Horn es un insecto plaga del maíz almacenado en México, América Central, parte de América del Sur y se está expandiendo rápidamente en África desde que fue introducido a este continente. El control de este insecto en los almacenes se lleva a cabo con el uso masivo de insecticidas. Con el objeto de encontrar una alternativa para su control, se realizó un estudio de microscopía electrónica en el intestino medio del insecto adulto y su larva. Se detectó, en el intestino medio de P. truncatus adulto, la presencia de una membrana peritrófica. Esta membrana está formada por una red irregular compuesta de varias capas, la cual está ausente en el intestino medio del último estadío larvario de P. truncatus. Esto indica que su formación tiene lugar, principalmente, durante el período de pupa, por lo que P. truncatus podría ser controlado biológicamente usando plantas transgénicas con la información específica para interferir en la síntesis de esta membrana.

    Full Text Available The minimum requirement for the anti-caries effect of a dentifrice is the presence of available and stable fluoride in the formulation. The concentration of available fluoride in the major dentifrices sold in Brazil has been reported, but few data have been published about its stability, which is temperature-dependent. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the concentration and stability of fluoride in dentifrices sold in Manaus, AM, Brazil, which is a typical tropical city. The concentrations of total fluoride, total soluble fluoride, MFP, and of insoluble fluoride of six Brazilian dentifrices and an imported one were analyzed. The analyses were made when the dentifrices were purchased and during a year of storage at room temperature (28.9 ± 1.16°C and under refrigeration (26.3 ± 0.88°C. The analyses were performed using an ion specific electrode Orion 96-09. At the time of purchase, all the dentifrices analyzed showed more than 1,000 ppm (mug F-/g; w/w of soluble fluoride. However, in most of them, this form of fluoride was not shown to be stable. The highest loss of soluble fluoride was found for storage at room temperature, reaching up to 40%. Although all dentifrices comply with the Brazilian guidelines with regard to the concentration of total fluoride (maximum of 0.15%, the instability of soluble fluoride observed in some of them can impair their anti-caries effect and this condition is not contemplated in the Governmental rules.O requisito mínimo para que um dentifrício tenha potencial anticárie é ele ter uma formulação com fluoreto na forma solúvel e estável. A concentração de fluoreto solúvel nos dentifrícios vendidos no Brasil tem sido descrita, mas pouco é conhecido sobre sua estabilidade, a qual é função da temperatura. Assim, o objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a concentração e estabilidade do fluoreto em dentifrícios vendidos em Manaus, AM, Brasil. As concentrações de fluoreto total, fluoreto solúvel total, MFP, e de fluoreto insolúvel de seis dentifrícios nacionais e um importado foram determinadas quando da aquisição e durante um período de 12 meses de armazenamento à temperatura ambiental (28,9 ± 1,16°C e sob ar refrigerado (26,3 ± 0,88°C. Para a análise foi utilizado eletrodo específico para íon fluoreto Orion 96-09. Os resultados mostraram que todos os dentifrícios tinham uma expressiva concentração (mig F-/g; p/p de fluoreto solúvel total quando da aquisição. Entretanto, a maioria deles não se mostrou estável quando do armazenamento. A maior perda ocorreu à temperatura ambiente, atingindo valores de 40%. Embora a concentração de fluoreto total encontrada em todos os dentifrícios esteja de acordo com a portaria da ANVISA, dependendo das condições de armazenamento a perda de fluoreto solúvel pode comprometer o efeito anticárie de alguns dentifrícios e isto não está contemplado pela portaria brasileira em vigor.

Por ser considerado um alimento completo em nutrientes facilmente assimiláveis, torna-se um excelente meio de cultura para a maioria dos microrganismos encontrados na natureza. No leite nunca se deve tolerar inibidores ou substâncias para aumentar sua capacidade de conservação. A incorporação de antibióticos no leite pode ocorrer acidentalmente, como é o caso dos medicamentos ou colocados como adulterantes. Os efeitos que estas drogas causam no homem, podem levar de um simples processo alérgico até um choque anafilático, além das grandes perdas de partidas de leite em indústrias de laticínios, trazendo prejuízos econômicos. Durante o período de outubro de 1998 a março de 1999 foram analisadas 26 amostras de leite pasteurizado “tipo C” de apenas uma marca, utilizando o método ADM (Antimicrobial Diffusion Method.

Os resultados evidenciaram que 38,5% das amostras apresentaram-se em desacordo com as normas estabelecidas pelo RIISPOA (Regulamento da Inspeção Industrial e Sanitária de Produtos de Origem Animal no Art. 514, parágrafo único, que proíbe o uso de substâncias químicas na conservação do leite. PALAVRAS CHAVE: leite pasteurizado, resíduos antibióticos, Bacillus stearothermophilus, var. calidolactis. SUMMARY: Milk is a food of high nutritional value. It is widely consumed by human beings and it is considered as one of the main aliments of children diet. It is regarded as a complete nurishment in easily assimilable nutrients, thus it becomes an excelent culture medium for most organisms in nature. There must not be any tolerance for inibitors or substances to increase its conservation capacity. Antibiotic incorporation may happen by accident , as in case of medicines given to the animals or when it is added to adultarate milk. The effects of these drugs on human being may range from a simple alergic process to a serious anaphylaxis and a big loss in milk industry may, also happen. From October 1998 to March 1999 twenty six samples of pasteurized “tipe C” milk were analized using the ADM (Antimicrobial Diffusion Method. Samples were colected in different commercial sets of Salvador City-Bahia. Results show that 38.5% of the samples were out of the RIISPOA (Animal Origin Products Industry and Sanitary Inspection Rules standards , according to its article 514, Unique paragraph, which forbides use of any chemical substances for milk conservation. KEYWORDS: pasteurized milk, antibiotic residue, Bacillus stearothermophilus, var. calidolactis

    Full Text Available EL CULTIVO DE ORGANISMOS GENÉTICAMENTE MODIFICADOS –conocidos como transgénicos–ha ido en aumento desde su aprobación comercial en 1994. Nicaragua no tiene restricciones de importación de estas semillas y alimentos. Sin embargo, dado el intercambio comercial con países productores de transgénicos, se ha especulado que no se han respetado las normas de importación establecidas. El Centro de Biología Molecular de la UCA, a través de un muestreo al azar, se propuso investigar la presencia de material transgénico en arroz, soya y maíz importado y disponible en los principales puestos de venta del país. Analizamos las muestras mediante dos métodos comúnmente usados en laboratorios de diagnóstico molecular: pruebas inmunológicas y detección a nivel de ADN del promotor 35S y el terminador NOS. Aquí presentamos los resultados del trabajo y reportamos que en el período comprendido en este estudio no se detectaron semillas transgénicas en Nicaragua.

    Full Text Available The control of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF it is important to control the vector, i.e. Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus and Ae. albopictus (Skuse. Usually, controls of these vectors are done using chemical insecticides. Research on mosquito resistance has been done, but the impact of mosquitoes that survive after synthetic (chemical insecticides application has not been studied. The aim of this research was to analyze the differences of fecundity, fertility and vitality rate of mosquitoes that were exposed to natural insecticides i.e with burned breadnut flowers and mosquito coils containing transflutrin and d-aletrin. Mosquito samples were taken from field eggs which were exposed with synthetic and natural insecticides. Mosquitoes that remainder alive after 24 hours exposure were mated and each group were put in 2 cages, each repetition were repeated 3 times. The mosquito eggs were observed until adult mosquitoes die. Then, the fecundity, fertility and vitality rate were compared. Based on our analysis, there were no differences on fecundity rate, between control and mosquitoes that were exposed to natural insecticides, but there were significant differences between the control and the synthetic insecticides. Natural insecticides do not increase the rate of fecundity but synthetic insecticides may increase the rate of fecundity and number of mosquitoes and causes the mosquito lifespan longer than the control and natural insecticide treatment.

    Full Text Available En la patogénesis de las enfermedades alérgicas están involucrados el ambiente, la carga genética y la inmunocompetencia del individuo. Continuamente nuestro sistema inmune está expuesto a numerosas proteínas, sin embargo, solo unas pocas inducen una respuesta inmune alérgica. El potencial intrínsico de una proteína alergénica para inducir sensibilización solo se manifiesta en individuos susceptibles, genéticamente condicionados a presentar respuestas atópicas. Muchas de estas proteínas alergénicas comparten alguna homología en su secuencia de aminoácidos. Estos alérgenos poseen un amplio rango de características moleculares, ninguna de las cuales es única solo para estas proteínas alergénicas. A pesar de esto, algunas de estas características son más comunes entre algunos alérgenos que con otras proteínas. Se ha demostrado que algunas proteínas con actividad enzimática inducen reacciones alérgicas y que esta propiedad biológica está asociada con su actividad catalítica. En la presente revisión se describen las principales características moleculares de las proteínas alergénicas, y se hace énfasis en la cistein proteasas de los ácaros intradomiciliarios, en razón a que ellas son un factor de riesgo en el desarrollo de una respuesta inmune alérgica en individuos susceptibles y se constituyen en factores desencadenantes de respuestas inflamatorias en la fisiopatología de las enfermedades alérgicas respiratorias.

    2015-01-01

    In this investigation, influence of foliar application of micronutrients (Zn, Cu and B) was studied on the improvement in photosynthetic and fruit yield attributes of citrus (Kinnow) plants. Experiments were conducted in two districts of Punjab (Sargodha and Toba Tek Singh), Pakistan varying in soil properties and agro-climatic conditions. Plants at both sites were subjected to foliar spray of three different levels (i.e. 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3%) of each Zn, Cu and B at three different fruit developmental stages while macronutrients (NPK) were applied at recommended rates as soil amendment. Micronutrients (Zn, Cu and B) application caused a significant improvement in net photosynthetic rate (A), transpiration rate (E), stomatal conductance (gs), Chlorophyll a, b, total, and caroteniods in both the citrus orchards. However, effect of micronutrients i.e. Zn, Cu and B was more pronounced at the levels of 0.3, 0.1 and 0.2%, respectively. These levels of nutrients were also effective in improving fruit yield with better fruit quality. (author)

Porém não se sabe se a influência da adubação fosfatada na qualidade dos tubérculos produzidos pode variar em função da cultivar e da disponibilidade de P no solo. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito da adubação fosfatada sobre a qualidade e composição nutricional dos tubérculos comercializáveis de cultivares de batata. Foram conduzidos experimentos em solos com baixa, média e alta disponibilidade de P, utilizando delineamento de blocos ao acaso, no esquema fatorial 2 × 5, com quatro repetições. Os tratamentos foram constituídos por duas cultivares de batata (Agata e Mondial e cinco doses de P2O5 (0, 125, 250, 500 e 1.000 kg ha–1. A adubação fosfatada aumentou o teor de P e de amido, o tamanho e a produtividade de tubérculos comercializáveis, com resposta mais expressiva às maiores doses nos solos com baixa e média disponibilidade de P. A cultivar Mondial foi mais produtiva, por apresentar maior massa média de tubérculos e maiores aumentos nessa característica em resposta a adubação fosfatada. A cultivar Mondial produziu tubérculos com polpa mais firme, com maior percentagem de matéria seca e com maiores teores de Ca, Cu e Zn do que a Agata. Em solo com baixo P disponível, a adubação fosfatada reduziu o teor de Zn mas, de maneira geral, teve pouca influência na composição nutricional dos tubérculos de batata.

Addition of 0.1% Tween 20 and 2 g/l L-glutamine to Agrobacterium infection medium counteracted the bactericidal effect and significantly increased the T-DNA delivery to explants. A short preculture of explants for 2 days followed by infection with Agrobacterium in medium containing 150 μM of acetosyringone were found essential for efficient T-DNA delivery. Cocultivation for 3 days at 22 °C in conjunction with other optimized factors resulted in maximum T-DNA delivery. The Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of leaf disk explants were found significantly related to physiological age of the explants, age and origin of the of the donor plant. Leaf explants from second node of the 3-month-old in vivo plants showed highest transformation efficiency (94.3%) revealed by transient GUS expression assay. Plants selected on medium containing 20 mg/l kanamycin showed stable GUS expression in leaves and stem. The elongated shoots readily developed roots on kanamycin-free rooting medium and on transfer to soil, plants were successfully established. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse-transcriptase PCR analysis in putative plants confirmed their transgenic nature. The established transformation method should provide new opportunities for the genetic improvement of patchouli for desirable trait.

    When a linear accelerator for radiotherapy operates with acceleration voltages higher than 8 MV, neutrons are produced, as secondary radiation which deposits an undesirable and undesirable dose in the patient. Depending on the type of tumor, its location in the body and the characteristics of the patient, the cancer treatment with a Linac is performed with photon or electron beams, which produce neutrons through reactions (γ, n) and (e, e n) respectively. Because the effective section for the neutrons production by reactions (γ, n) is approximately two orders of magnitude larger than the effective section of the reactions (e, e n), studies on the effects of this secondary radiation have focused on photo neutrons. en a Linac operates with electron beams, the beam coming out of the magnetic deflector is impinged on the dispersion lamella in order to cause quasi-elastic interactions and to expand the spatial distribution of the electrons; the objective of this work is to determine the characteristics of the photons and neutrons that occur when a mono-energetic electron beam of 2 mm in diameter (pencil beam) is made to impinge on a tungsten lamella of 1 cm in diameter and 0.5 mm of thickness. The study was done using Monte Carlo methods with code MCNP6 for electron beams of 8, 10, 12, 15 and 18 MeV. The spectra of photons and neutrons were estimated in 4 point detectors placed at different equidistant points from the center of the lamella. (Author)

    Polyembryony is the most beneficial and distinct character in citrus seeds. This characteristic can be beneficial in citrus improvement programs. Nucellar embryos developed from nucellar wall in citrus seeds along with zygotic embryo are found to have high plants regeneration ability in comparison to zygotic embryos. Under In vitro culture conditions, nucellar embryos were detected and multiplied on MT media with 0.5ml of coconut water along with 50g/L sucrose. These nucellar embryonic tissues were also regenerated on MT media upplemented with 0.5 mg/L BAP and 0.5 mg/L kinetin. Many shoots were regenerated from nucellar embryonic tissue; these shoots were rooted on MT media supplemented with IBA 0.5mg/L and NAA 0.1 mg/L in addition to activated charcoal 0.5gm/L. The resulting plantlets were acclimatized in the green house. After micropropagation, histological studies of nucellar embryonic tissues were carried out under fluorescence microscope to examine their high regeneration ability in comparison with usual plant parts, like seeds, shoots as well as with tissue culture stages including embryogenic and non-embryogenic callus. It was found that nucellar embryos have more regeneration ability as compared to usual plant parts and other tissue culture stages. (author)

    Being based on the Elastic scattering and in the Energy losses that suffer a projectile to the interacting with the matter, a method that allows to determine the thickness of a target deposited in a more heavy substrate is presented. The obtained results are consistent with that waited and the derived errors of the method are small. The used technique allows to reduce in considerable form the systematic errors coming from the calibration of the equipment. It is considered that this method is applicable in an interval of thickness quite wide and for many materials since it is only necessary to choose the projectile type and the energy of the same one appropriately.

    About 10-20 % kinnow fruits are dropped in preharvest stage which are waste and are problem to farmer as these create nuisance by rotting and insect rearing ground. The peels of these dropped fruits as well as peels from kinnow processing may be good source of naringin and pectin. Naringin is used in pharmaseutics while pectin is used in food industry. For recovery of naringin and pectn, peels of preharvest dropped kinnow fruits were boiled in water. The extract was passed through macroporus polymeric adsorbent resin Indion PA 800, naringin was adsorbed on it. The adsorbed naringin was desorbed with ethanol. This solution was passed through membrane filter and filtrate was evaporated to obtain naringin. The extract remaining after adsorption of naringin was used to recover pectin using acid extraction method. The recovery of naringin and pectin was about 52 and 58 % respectively. The naringin finally obtained had 91-93 % purity.

Recientemente se identificó asociación entre un alelo de 175 pb de un microsatélite (STR, ligado a Nramp, con la resistencia a microorganismos intracelulares en bovinos; adicionalmente, se han identificado otros tres alelos (177, 179 y 181 pb asociados con susceptibilidad. En la especie bovina, la Salmonella Dublín sirve como modelo para estudiar la resistencia natural a otras bacterias intracelulares como la Brucella abortus, ya que se ha demostrado que macrófagos derivados de bovinos resistentes controlan eficientemente el crecimiento de ambas bacterias. En Colombia, se ha propuesto que el ganado criollo “BON” presenta una marcada resistencia a enfermedades infecciosas, entre ellas la brucellosis. El objetivo de esta investigación fue determinar el genotipo y el fenotipo de la resistencia del ganado BON a la Salmonella Dublín SL 2260, para contribuir a la caracterización inmunogenética de la resistencia natural de este ganado a las infecciones microbianas. En este trabajo sé han analizado 80 bovinos de la raza “BON”, 18 holstein y 4 cebú: se extrajo ADN a partir de sangre periférica, se amplificó el STR ligado al Nramp, a través de la técnica de reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR; el producto fue sometido a un análisis de polimorfismos conformacionales de cadena sencilla (SSCP, utilizando un gel de polyacrilamida al 6% en condiciones no reductoras. De acuerdo a la movilidad electroforética de los amplicones, y comparándola con un patrón ya definido de resistencia, se han tipificado los diferentes animales. De los 80 animales “BON”, 79 (98.75% fueron homocigóticos para el alelo de resistencia (R y solo un animal resulto ser heterocigótico; además, todos los animales de la raza holstein analizados portan el alelo de resistencia. En contraste todos los bovinos cebú presentaron alelos diferentes al alelo de resistencia ya reportado. En muestras que representen las poblaciones R y S se determinará el fenotipo, realizando un ensayo bactericida in vitro, para luego buscar asociación entre genotipos y fenotipos; esta asociación ofrece la posibilidad de seleccionar y hacer cruces con los animales naturalmente resistentes, para contribuir al desarrollo de nuevas estrategias en el control de estos patógenos, y en la caracterización y preservación del ganado criollo colombiano.

    One of the best source of feeding even for the human being as for animals are the Cereals. Although they are mainly energetic aliment, due to its composition in starch, they are a very important source of proteins and amino acids. They contribute mineral elements to the diet. Even those elements constitute a very small part of the total diet, they take a very important place in many human metabolic processes. To make a multielemental analysis of an aliment is very important that we are based on a very sensible analytic technique so we are able to find them, just as the Neutronic Activation. This Nuclear technique allows you to make a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the elements that are in a sample, but it does n`t show the way in which the elements are presented. It is based in turning those elements into radioactive ones through its exposition to an uniform and constant fluid of neutrons, so then its radioactivity can be determined. The present work has as a main purpose to make a multielemental analysis of the wheat flour and white bread through the Neutronic Activation Technique, using the comparator method and establishing previously the most appropriate work conditions as much irradiation as digestion and measuring of the radioactivity of the sample. In this way, it was able to know that the wheat flour has potassium, chlorine, magnesium, sodium, iron, zinc, manganese, rubidium and selenium elements in a concentration of 2000, 700, 500, 25, 18, 13, 5.5, 0.9 and 0.01 - 0.3 mg/g respectively. In an other hand it was found that the white bread has the same elements than the wheat flour but its concentration was: 1700, 9000, 400, 7000, 52, 13, 6, 1 and 0.05 - 0.3 mg/g respectively.

    Full Text Available Quando não devidamente maturados, os compostos orgânicos podem causar fitotoxicidade, prejudicando o desenvolvimento das culturas e a produção. Esse efeito está frequentemente relacionado com a libertação de ácidos orgânicos de baixo peso molecular, de azoto na forma amoniacal e de dióxido de carbono. Este estudo tem como objectivo avaliar a qualidade de correctivos orgânicos em comercialização no Entre Douro e Minho. Para tal, procedeu-se a uma amostragem dos correctivos orgânicos disponíveis em treze cooperativas agrícolas da região do Entre Douro e Minho, e à elaboração de um pequeno inquérito. Na apreciação da qualidade, utilizaram-se os métodos químicos e biológicos. Os resultados obtidos permitem concluir que a qualidade dos compostos deve ser melhorada. Importa referir que, embora os resultados da apreciação da qualidade dos compostos efectuados com base na proposta de norma para a apreciação da qualidade do composto orgânico de Souteiro & Baptista (2001 indiquem que todos os compostos avaliados apresentam parâmetros químicos limitativos, os resultados da avaliação biológica revelam-se mais positivos.The maturity degree is a basic parameter in the apreciation of the quality of organic composts. When unstable or without enough maturity the organic amendment can cause phytotoxity by liberation of volatile organic acids, ammonium or carbon dioxide. With the present work we attempt to quantify the effective quality of composts in comercialization at Entre-Douro-e Minho farmers associations. Quality of composts were evaluated by chemical and biological methods. The results allow us to conclude that the quality of the organic composts must be improved. While the results of the chemical evaluation classify all samples as bad, biological evaluations bellow a better judgement.

    This work presents the development of models for Calculated Cetane Index (CCI) determination with the purpose of tailor it to the diesel oil sold in Brazil, using optimization techniques. As the diesel is the main fuel on the Brazilian territory, their quality is of great importance. The CCI calculation is important to evaluate the diesel quality. The standard ASTM D 4737 does not take into account the presence of cetane booster additive and biodiesel, which creates the need to recast the equation of the CCI determination. About 300 representative samples were selected of diesel in Parana, during the 2006 to 2007 period, which had their physic-chemical properties determined using the methodology adopted by the ANP - the Brazilian petroleum, natural gas and biofuel agency. The Derived Cetane Number was obtained in the IQT apparatus and several models were proposed, all with better predictive capability than the equation of the standard ASTM D 4737. It is pointed out that biodiesel can act as cetane booster additive depending upon its origin, mostly in concentrations above 5%. The methodology can be expanded to generate a representative equation for the diesel sold in the whole Brazilian territory. (author)

    Full Text Available Amidos nativos e modificados têm grande importância na indústria de alimentos, sendo empregados principalmente como espessantes e/ou estabilizantes. As limitações das pastas e géis obtidos a partir de amidos nativos tornaram necessário o desenvolvimento de muitos tipos de amidos modificados para aplicações alimentícias. Neste trabalho, algumas amostras de amidos modificados (n=20 disponíveis no Brasil foram recebidas de empresas produtoras e analisadas em relação a algumas características físico-químicas e propriedades tecnológicas. Um levantamento do uso de amidos modificados em alimentos também é apresentado, revelando crescente interesse pela indústria nesses ingredientes. Constatou-se que, enquanto alguns alimentos industrializados, como maioneses contêm em suas formulações amidos modificados, outros como condimento preparado de mostarda contêm apenas amido nativo. As análises físico-químicas permitiram concluir que alguns amidos modificados apresentavam teores elevados de acidez, relacionados à presença de reagentes utilizados em sua obtenção, não havendo presença de carboxilas nas suas macromoléculas. De maneira geral, os resultados de algumas propriedades tecnológicas avaliadas, tais como viscosidade aparente das pastas, resistência a congelamento/descongelamento e propriedade de expansão, estavam de acordo com a descrição dos produtos. As fontes mais observadas nas modificações foram, em ordem decrescente de importância, a mandioca, o milho ceroso e o milho regular.Native and modified starches are very valued for the food industry, being employed mainly as thickeners or stabilizers. Several technological limitations of native starch pastes or gels made it necessary to develop modified starches for the food industry. In the present work modified starch samples (n=20 available in Brazil were received from some producers and evaluated in relation to selected physicochemical characteristics and technological properties. Also a very simple evaluation of food starch market was done and allowed to conclude that Brazilian food industry is deeply interested on modified starches. It was possible to note that some foods like mayonnaise have on its composition modified starch whereas others like mustard sauce are produced only with native starch. The physicochemical analyses showed that some of the studied samples had high acidity levels, related with the presence of excess reagents employed on the starch modification processes; the results of carboxyl groups content allowed this conclusion. Almost all results were in agreement with the producers' specifications, for example for the freeze-thaw stability, apparent viscosity and the expansion power. The most frequent botanical sources among the studied samples were cassava, waxy corn and regular corn.

    Full Text Available In the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the Pacem in terris of John XXIII, contemporary to the beginning of the II Vatican Council, the text makes emphasis on the interrelationship between peace and religious liberty as a result of the opening allowed by the encyclical that was determinant to overcome the tolerance attitude in religious issues that was promoted by the Roman Catholic Church in the last century. The conciliation assembly highlights the contributions made by two specific documents: the Religious Liberty Decree and the Declaration regarding Non-Christian Religions. The assembly also suggests some lines to reflect about religious liberty in a discussion among diverse religious organizations.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho teve por objetivo caracterizar os queijos Pecorino Toscano, Feta e Labneh produzidos com leite ovino quanto aos aspectos físico-químicos e perfil lipídico. Foram adquiridos e analisados queijos tipo Pecorino Toscano Fresco, com 90, 180 e 270 dias de maturação, Feta e Labneh elaborados com leite de ovelha, comercializados no estado do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. As análises realizadas foram: pH, acidez titulável, proteína, gordura, umidade, cinzas e perfil de ácidos graxos. O maior pH ocorreu nos queijos tipo Pecorino Toscano com 180 dias de maturação e Feta. Em relação à acidez titulável estes apresentaram comportamento contrário ao do pH. Os valores de proteína oscilaram entre 15,98 e 28,29% m/m, sendo os maiores valores para os queijos com maior tempo de maturação. A gordura apresentou variação idêntica à proteína, onde os queijos tipo Pecorino Toscano com 180 e 270 dias de maturação apresentaram maior valor. Os valores de umidade apresentaram-se inversos ao tempo de maturação, sendo que os queijos com 270, 180 e 90 dias de maturação apresentaram valores de 25,14, 25,95 e 30,26% m/m respectivamente. As cinzas também se demonstraram maiores para os queijos maturados. Em relação ao perfil lipídico, foram identificados 23 ácidos graxos, ocorrendo diferença significativa na maioria dos resultados, inclusive no somatório dos ácidos graxos saturados, monoinsaturados, poliinsaturados e na relação entre insaturados e saturados. Portanto, devido à escassez de informações sobre a composição de queijos produzidos com leite ovino, outras pesquisas devem ser realizadas para caracterizar de forma consistente estes produtos.

    Abstract. The whiteflies are tending by ants, which give protection and dispersion make the control of those suckers more difficult. The interaction ant-Sternorrhyncha occurs, mainly due to the production of a sugared material named honeydew. The aim of the study as realized sampling, diversity study, frequency, constancy and dominance of the ant’s whiteflies tending species in night and day period. The sampling were conducted from October 2002 to October 2003. The species of whiteflies detected were Aleurothrixus floccosus Maskell, Aleurotrachelus cruzi Cassino, Singhiella citrifolii (Morgan and Paraleyrodes bondari Peracchi. The study concluded that 12 species of ants were associated with A. floccossus, 4 species with A. cruzi and 3 species with P. bondari. Associations between ants and S. citrifolli where not observed. Among the species of ants associated with whiteflies, those ones associated with A. floccosus presented the major diversity (0.743 and the minor dominance (0.3194 and equitability J (0.6882. Brachymyrmex sp. was the most frequent species (31.94% and also the most constant. P. bondari showed a diversity of 0.477, the dominance of 0.3333 and the equitability J 1. To A. cruzi, the diversity was of 0.422, dominance of 0.6098 e equitability J of 0.7013. This species of whiteflies show a dominance of the species Crematogaster sp. 1, with the frequency of 60.98% although it was secondary. The close relationship between A. floccosus and 12 ants demonstrates a preference for the excrements (honeydew of the whiteflies, for the quantity as well as for the quality of the honeydew.

    Full Text Available La Segunda Guerra mundial provoca la desaparición de viejos estilos de vida en el mundo occidental. Una de las causas de este fenómeno se compone de drásticos cambios en la estructura ocupacional de occidente, especialmente en EEUU, que resultaron en una nueva clase media de administradores surgidos de los college devenidos muchos de ellos gerentes de las grandes corporaciones. La emergencia de los gerentes como asalariados pone en cuestión la idea de una clase asalariada homogénea al estilo marxista debido a la expansión de actores tales como burócratas, profesionales, que no se agotan en una explicación dualista o dicotómica de la sociedad. Los estudios acerca del trabajo gerencial se enmarcan dentro de los debates acerca de la transición del llamado "fordismo" hacia el "posfordismo" o de producción en masa a la producción flexible. Estas discusiones suelen soslayar o relegar a un papel secundario la cuestión de las transformaciones en la identidad y la subjetividad dentro del espacio de trabajo. Sostenemos en este trabajo que el espacio laboral ocupa un rol fundamental en la conformación de la identidad. Este supuesto se opone a los pronósticos más optimistas del llamado posfordismo que consideran que la esfera extralaboral es la que imprime su sello sobre el mundo del trabajo. La intención de este artículo es indagar, por un lado, cómo abordan las Ciencias Sociales en general y los debates sobre las Clases Medias, la Sociología del Trabajo y la Sociología de las Organizaciones en particular, la cuestión del trabajo gerencial y por otro, qué aportes realiza la bibliografía en este campo para intentar esclarecer qué tipo de subjetividad propician las empresas para con sus mandos gerenciales y qué implicancias conlleva en la práctica laboral concreta de éstos. Es así como se presentarán 3 debates fundamentales que han surcado el camino para acercarnos a dilucidar esta cuestión: la discusión sobre calificación y competencias, la perspectiva de la cultura laboral y, por último, la teoría del capital humano.Second World War caused the disappearing of older life styles in western world. One of the reasons of this phenomen relies on drastic changes in the occupational structure in western world, especially in the US, which result in a new middle class of managers that emerged from colleges who became big bosses in corporate America. Those salaried managers questioned the idea of a homogeneous salaried class in the Marxist way due to the expansion of players such as bureaucrats, professionals, who doesn´t deplete in a dualist or dichotomist explanation of society. Labor studies about managers are framed into the debates around the transition from fordism to posfordism or from mass production to lean production. These discussions used to relegate to a secondary roll the issue of the transformations in the identity and subjectivity at work. We stress in this article that work engage a fundamental roll in the configuration of identity. This postulation opposes to most optimistic forecasts of the so called posfordism, which regard the world outside work as one that outweighs world of labor. The intention of this article is to inquire, on one side, the way Social Sciences in general and the debates around Middle Classes, Sociology of Work and Organizational Sociology in particular, the issue of managerial work and on the other side, which contributions make bibliography in this field in order to clear up what kind of subjectivity corporations promote to their middle management and what implications carry on their everyday work. Therefore, we introduce 3 fundamental debates who have plowed the road to try to elucidate this issue: the debate about qualification and competences, the labor culture perspective and human capital theory.

    This paper evaluates the total Hg and the trace elements As, Br, Co, Cr and Rb concentrations in muscle of commercially important fishes at the Cubatao, Sao Paulo, Brazil, region. The following carnivore species were analysed: jew fish (Micropogonias furnieri), girl leg (Menticirrhus americanus), hake (Macrodon ancylodon), and plant eaters, sardine (Sardella braziliensis) and grey mullet (Mugil liza), representing a total of 58 samples. The analysed trace elements were determined through the neutron analysis activation (NAA) and total Hg, through the atomic absorption spectrometry with cold vapor generation (CV AAS). The analysed elements present a great concentration variation, not only among individuals of the same specie, but also among all the analysed species. The total Hg concentration were highly significant, with the predator species jew fish, girl leg and hake presenting concentrations larger than the non predator species sardine and grey mullet. Nevertheless, the content of total Hg remained bellow the limits established by the Brazilian legislation which is the 500 {mu}g kg{sup -1} for the non predator species, and the 1000 {mu}g{sup -1} for the predator species (humid weight)

The atomic absorption and neutron activation analysis techniques were used for the determination of Hg total levels and trace elements respectively. The trace elements presented large concentration variation among the same specie and the species performed as well. The jew fish presented levels superior to 1000 {mu}g kg{sup -1} for the most individuals analysed and the perch presented chromium levels exceeding the limit of 0.10 mg kg{sup -1} for some individuals. The level of Zn presented values below 50 mg kg{sup -1} established by the Brazilian legislation for all species. The Zn total contents among all species presented values bellow the limits of the Brazilian legislation (500 {mu}g kg{sup -1} for the predator species and 1000 {mu}g kg{sup -1} for the predator species)

    Full Text Available Fluctuations in the Brazilian milk market force small milk producers to find temporary trade alternatives, which include selling raw milk to people who prefer this type of milk rather than heat-processed milk. Considering the importance of these small milk producers to the market and the well-known health risks associated to consumption of raw milk, this study evaluated the microbiological quality and the presence of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., chlorine, antimicrobials and insecticides (organophosphates and carbamates in raw milk produced in 210 small and medium farms located in four important milk-producing Brazilian states (Paraná, São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do Sul. In 66% of the selected farms the milking was manual. In 33% of them, the milking was semi-automatic, and only 1% were equipped with fully automatic milking systems. All raw milk samples were negative for L. monocytogenes, Salmonella spp and chlorine. Mesophilic aerobes counts were higher than 10(5 CFU/ml in 75.7% of the samples. In 80.4%, coliforms were over 10² CFU/ml. Escherichia coli was detected in 36.8% of the samples. Insecticides and antimicrobial residues were observed in 74.4% and 11.5% of the samples, respectively. The presence of unacceptable levels of hygiene indicators, insecticides and antimicrobial residues were considered more important risk factors than the two pathogens.A instabilidade do mercado de leite no Brasil força pequenos produtores de leite a procurar alternativas de comércio de sua produção, o que inclui a venda de leite cru para indivíduos que dão preferência a esse tipo de leite.

    The goal of this paper is to present the work in the thesis developed by Silva Jr. (2005) who discusses the application of the methodologies of Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) as a tool to propose energy efficiency standards, additional to the voluntary labels already existing in the one-door Brazilian refrigerators. Another objective is to study the role of these instruments (energy efficiency labels and standards and environmental labels) as means to supply technical subsidies for the establishment of maximum level of electric energy consumption and environmental quality impact for electrical equipment in Brazil. The LCCA methodology allows to evaluate the impacts of the energy efficiency increasing in electrical equipment, resulting in important saving (energy, financial, carbon dioxide emissions avoided etc.) for the country and its citizens. The results reached in this studies offer important data to subsidize deep discussions with manufacturers and the government to stipulate minimum energy efficiency standards for the Brazilian refrigerators. Thus, with increase of 28,1% on the energy efficiency of the one-door Brazilian refrigerators in 2008 to reach a values of savings that can be in order of 54,63 TWh (with respective reduction of demand power of 208 MW), of US$ 6,23 Billions of Dollar (R$ 17,2 Billions of Reais) of reduction in the account of electric energy for the population and of approximately 22 billions of tons of CO{sub 2} not emitted on the environment after 30 years of the implantation of standard. These values, that can not be despised by government, manufacturers and consumers. One other interest of this work is to start the discussion, the possibility of the creation of environmental labelling (e.g., Green Seal - USA, Eco-label - EU etc.) that is an additional program/methodology, which, it may be utilized as support for development of technologies and for the increase of energy and environmental efficiency of the electric equipment. These labels are strategically important for Brazil to amplify the environmental programs to their products because they can facilitate the insertion of these products in the international market, at the same time, that the country gets in the increase of the quality (environmental etc.) and promotes the sustainable development around the world.

    Full Text Available Os ionóforos poliéteres são antibióticos utilizados em bovinos como promotores de crescimento, para aumentar a produção de leite em vacas em lactação e prevenir e tratar a coccidiose. Os ionóforos poliéteres autorizados como aditivos antimicrobianos no Brasil para uso na alimentação de bovinos e vacas leiteiras são a lasalocida e a monensina sódica. Entretanto, poucos são os métodos analíticos para determinação destes resíduos em leite e não há dados de monitoramento disponíveis no Brasil. Essa classe ainda não está incluída nos programas de controle de resíduos em leite implementados pela Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária e pelo Ministério da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento. Este trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar a ocorrência de seis ionóforos poliéteres em leite UHT empregando um método analítico desenvolvido e validado no Instituto Nacional de Controle de Qualidade em Saúde. O método foi aplicado em 102 amostras de leite integral UHT comercializadas na região metropolitana do Rio de Janeiro. Nas amostras analisadas somente resíduos do antibiótico monensina foram encontrados. Esta substância foi detectada em 14% das amostras, mas as concentrações estimadas foram bem inferiores ao limite máximo de resíduo de 2 µg/kg recomendado pelo Codex Alimentarius e pela Comunidade Europeia. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Polyether ionophore antibiotics are used in cattle to promote growth, to increase milk production in lactating cows, and to prevent and treat coccidiosis. In Brazil, lasalocid and monensin are the two polyether ionophores that are allowed as antimicrobial additives in cattle and dairy cow feed. However, there are few methods for determining the residues of these additives in milk, and no monitoring data are available in Brazil. These residues are not yet included in the residue control programs in the milk matrix implemented by the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. The present study aimed to evaluate the occurrence of 6 polyether ionophores in UHT milk using an analytical method developed and validated by the National Institute for Quality Control in Health. The method was applied to 102 samples of whole UHT milk marketed in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro. In the analyzed samples, only residues of the antibiotic monensin were found. The residues were detected in 14% of the samples; however, the estimated concentrations were well below the maximum residue limit of 2 µg/kg recommended by the Codex Alimentarius and the European Community.

    Full Text Available O pescado e seus produtos são reconhecidamente importantes alternativas alimentares para a população humana, representam fontes de proteínas de alta qualidade e boa digestibilidade, lipídios, minerais, ácidos graxos e vitaminas lipossolúveis. A indústria de pescado representa um vasto potencial quanto ao volume de resíduo gerado, pois seus descartes podem ser transformados em produtos com aproveitamento mercadológico como exemplo disso as silagem, farinhas, óleos de peixe, biodiesel, produtos fermentados entre outros. Óleos provenientes de gordura animal e os usados para cocção de alimentos são utilizados como fonte de matéria prima alternativa para a produção de biocombustíveis, porém os óleos cuja origem vem dos resíduos orgânicos descartados por indústrias beneficiadoras de pescado estão sendo estudados como forma de reaproveitamento destes maximizando a utilização da matéria prima evitando desperdício e caminhando assim, para um desenvolvimento sustentável. Devido a falta de conhecimento sobre o potencial destes resíduos e a busca por matérias primas alternativas para melhorar a produção energética, o objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar a viabilidade do óleo extraído a partir das vísceras de peixes marinho para produção de biodiesel. Analisou-se a caracterização das vísceras de peixes marinhos e análises para determinar os teores de acidez, iodo e umidade, a viscosidade cinemática, o índice de saponificação e a densidade do óleo. Observou-se que as vísceras de peixes marinho apresentaram alto teor lipídico e proteico e o óleo extraído das vísceras de peixe marinho é uma alternativa como matéria prima para a produção de biodiesel.Palavras-chave: vísceras, peixe marinho, óleo, biodiesel.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: Evaluar la calidad sanitaria del pollo crudo que se expende en supermercados del área urbana del estado Mérida, Venezuela, y caracterizar fenotípicamente las cepas aisladas de Samonella enterica. Materiales y métodos: Se estudiaron 45 muestras de pollo crudo (15 correspondieron a pollo sin aliños, 15 con aliños y 15 de origen industrial. Los indicadores de calidad sanitaria evaluados fueron: bacterias aerobias mesófilas, coliformes totales, Escherichia coli y Staphylococcus aureus, utilizando la metodología de la Comisión Venezolana de Normas Industriales. La identificación microbiológica y serológica de Salmonella spp. se realizó mediante técnicas convencionales. La sensibilidad antimicrobiana se determinó por concentración inhibitoria mínima (CIM y, para la detección de β-lactamasas de espectro expandido (BLEE, se utilizó la prueba del sinergismo del doble disco. La sensibilidad a desinfectantes se determinó por el método de dilución-neutralización. Resultados: Independientemente de las características de la muestra de pollo crudo (no industrial y del establecimiento comercial, los indicadores: bacterias aerobias mesófilas, coliforme totales, E. coli y S. aureus, superaron significativamente los recuentos límites de aceptabilidad. Salmonella enterica se aisló en 20% de las muestras, y las serovariedades Heidelberg (55,6% y Enteritidis (22,2% fueron las más frecuentes. Estas variedades serológicas presentaron multirresistencia y producción de BLEE, pero fueron sensibles a los desinfectantes probados. Conclusión: Los pollos crudos con aliños y sin ellos, manufacturados en los establecimientos estudiados, no cumplen con la calidad microbiológica adecuada, lo que hace de ellos un producto perecedero a corto plazo y un nicho favorecedor de patógenos importantes que amenazan la salud de los consumidores.Objectives: Evaluate the sanitary quality of raw chicken sold in the urban area of the State of Merida, Venezuela and characterize the phenotype of isolated Samonella enterica strains.

The following sanitary quality indicators were assessed: Mesophiles Aerobic Bacteria (MAB, total coliforms, E. coli and S. aureus, and the Venezuelan Commission of Industrial Norms methodology was used for that purpose. Microbiological and serological identification of Salmonella was carried out using conventional techniques. Antimicrobial susceptibility was determined by minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC and the detection of extended-spectrum β- lactamases (ESBLs was carried out by using the double disc synergy test. Susceptibility to disinfectants was determined by the dilution-neutralization method. Results. Regardless of the (not industrial samples’ characteristics and/or the commercial establishment, it was determined that the ranges for MAB, total coliform, E. coli and S. aureus counts significantly exceeded limits of acceptability. Strains of Salmonella enterica were isolated in 20% of the samples, whose distribution showed that serovars Heidelberg (55.6% and Enteritidis (22.2% were the most frequent. These serovars showed multi-resistance to antibiotics and ESBLs production but were susceptible to the tested disinfectants. Conclusion. This study showed that raw chickens, with and without seasoning, processed in the surveyed commercial establishments do not meet the required microbiological quality standards suitable for human consumption. Therefore, these are short-term perishable products and a haven for important pathogens that threaten consumer health.

    The effects of refrigeration at 4 °C during 9 days on the quality and stability of catfish oil were evaluated using a change in fatty acid composition by gas chromatography (GC), commonly used analytical indexes (acid and peroxide values), and analysis by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The results revealed that lipid deterioration, hydrolysis and oxidation occurred throughout the cold storage (4 °C). Refrigeration induced the lipolysis of triglycerides by lipases and phospholipases. It also affected the fatty acids composition of the catfish. The progressive loss of unsaturation was monitored by the decrease in the absorbance band at 3012 cm−1on FTIR spectra and the lowest value was observed in the catfish muscle at 9 days of refrigeration. Eicosapentaenoic C20:5ω3 (EPA) and docosahexaenoic C22:6ω3 (DHA) acids were the polyunsaturated fatty acids most affected during refrigeration. Refrigeration for less than 5 days was found to be the best conditions for the preservation of the catfish. [Spanish] El efecto de la refrigeración a 4 °C durante 9 días sobre la calidad y estabilidad del aceite de pez gato se evaluó mediante el cambio en la composición de ácidos grasos por cromatografía de gases (CG), los índices analíticos comúnmente utilizados (acidez y peróxidos) así como mediante análisis por espectroscopia de infrarrojo por transformada de Fourier (FTIR). Los resultados mostraron que el deterioro de los lípidos, la hidrólisis y la oxidación ocurrieron durante el almacenamiento en frío (4 °C). La refrigeración indujo a lipolisis de triglicéridos por lipasas y fosfolipasas. También se vio afectada la composición de ácidos grasos, la pérdida progresiva de insaturación se controló mediante la disminución de la banda de absorbancia a 301cm−1 en los espectros FTIR y el valor más bajo se observó en el músculo a los 9 días de refrigeración. Los ácidos eicosapentaenoico C20:5ω3 (EPA) y docosahexaenoico C22:6ω3 (DHA) fueron los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados más afectados durante la refrigeración. Se encontró que la refrigeración durante menos de 5 días era la mejor condición para la conservación del pez gato.
