    Among Neotropical fish fauna, the South American killifish genus Austrolebias (Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae) constitutes an excellent model to study the genomic evolutionary processes underlying speciation events. Recently, unusually large genome size has been described in 16 species of this genus, with an average DNA content of about 5.95 ± 0.45 pg per diploid cell (mean C-value of about 2.98 pg). In the present paper we explore the possible origin of this unparallel genomic increase by means of comparative analysis of the repetitive components using NGS (454-Roche) technology in the lowest and highest Rivulidae genomes. Here, we provide the first annotated Rivulidae-repeated sequences composition and their relative repetitive fraction in both genomes. Remarkably, the genomic proportion of the moderately repetitive DNA in Austrolebias charrua genome represents approximately twice (45%) of the repetitive components of the highly related rivulinae taxon Cynopoecilus melanotaenia (25%). Present work provides evidence about the impact of the repeat families that could be distinctly proliferated among sublineages within Rivulidae fish group, explaining the great genome size differences encompassing the differentiation and speciation events in this family.

    Full Text Available Annual fish which belong to the order Cyprinodontiformes constitute an excellent model for evolutionary studies. their short life cycle, distribution in ecologically dynamic environments, and low agility make them favorable for genetic analyses. The species Hypsolebias antenori (Rivulidae, encountered in seasonal pools located in the semiarid region of Northeastern Brazil, has been the object of surveys with a view to study its ecological and behavioral aspects. This study reports on the karyotype patterns of this species, which represents the first contribution to the cytogenetics of this genus. The karyotype of this species is composed of 2n = 48 chromosomes (6m + 4sm + 36st; NF = 96; the heterochromatic regions are located in centromeric or pericentromeric position and are more pronounced in the nucleolar organizer regions. Two sites Ag-NORs/CMA+/DAPI were identified in the short arms of pairs 2 (metacentric and 21 (subtelocentric. Unlike the other species of this family which show an evolution modulated by events of centric fusions, H. antenori shows the maintenance of a basal diploid number and the large number of bibrachial elements indicates karyotypic diversification derived by pericentric inversions. Cytogenetic analyzes in this species will provide new taxonomic markers capable of being utilized in conservation issues and systematics.

    Laísa Wociechoski Cavalheiro

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT Rivulidae includes non-annual fish of perennial habitats and annual fish of temporary wetlands. The objective of this research was to investigate the trophic strategy of Atlantirivulus riograndensis in a perennial environment. Sampling occurred in an environmental conservation unit in the Pampa biome, Brazil. Quantification of the diet followed the volumetric method. Consumption of autochthonous material as the main food source of the species followed the pattern of Rivulidae. Species is zooplanktonic when young. Food spectrum is broadened and insectivorousness increases with ontogeny, revealing a specialist trend in the feeding strategy of A. riograndensis. The most diverse feeding occurs in the spring and summer seasons in which the presence of larger fish was more frequent than in other seasons. The increased consumption of microcrustaceans in the fall was related to smaller individuals, captured in greater quantities in this post-reproductive period. The lowest diversity of dietary items occurs during the winter and may reflect the lower diversity of food resources available in this season or the transition from juvenile to adult diet, with consumption of autochthonous Diptera by medium sized fish.

  5. The opportunistic feeding and reproduction strategies of the annual fish Cynopoecilus melanotaenia (Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae inhabiting ephemeral habitats on southern Brazil

    Cristina da Silva Gonçalves

    Full Text Available Most Rivulidae fishes are popularly known as annual fishes which live in ephemeral environments such as pools, that obligatorily dry out seasonally causing the death of adult individuals. They have unique biological characteristics such as small body size, early sexual maturation, continuous reproduction, an elaborated courtship behavior, and a great reproductive capacity among fishes. The rivulids are widely distributed in North, Central and South America. In this study, the diet and reproductive biology of Cynopoecilus melanotaenia was analyzed. A total of 263 specimens were collected and the analysis of 233 gastrointestinal contents revealed an invertivorous diet composed mainly of small crustaceans (Cladocera, Amphipoda, and Ostracoda and immature insects (Chaoboridae, Culicidae, Syrphidae, but mainly Chironomidae larvae. Lepidophagy on male's diet was also registered. Fecundity was estimated by analyzing 59 pairs of mature ovaries and ranged from 2 to 157 oocytes (mean, 19 ± 26[SD]. The species has fractional spawning, a strategy to increase the chance of survival to prolonged depletions. This study is the first to investigate the reproductive biology of C. melanotaenia. The results confirmed the opportunistic character of the rivulid C. melanotaenia and provided unreported reproductive information that may aid conservation of the species.

  6. Evolution, ecology and physiology of amphibious killifishes (Cyprinodontiformes).

    2015-10-01

    The order Cyprinodontiformes contains an exceptional diversity of amphibious taxa, including at least 34 species from six families. These cyprinodontiforms often inhabit intertidal or ephemeral habitats characterized by low dissolved oxygen or otherwise poor water quality, conditions that have been hypothesized to drive the evolution of terrestriality. Most of the amphibious species are found in the Rivulidae, Nothobranchiidae and Fundulidae. It is currently unclear whether the pattern of amphibiousness observed in the Cyprinodontiformes is the result of repeated, independent evolutions, or stems from an amphibious common ancestor. Amphibious cyprinodontiforms leave water for a variety of reasons: some species emerse only briefly, to escape predation or capture prey, while others occupy ephemeral habitats by living for months at a time out of water. Fishes able to tolerate months of emersion must maintain respiratory gas exchange, nitrogen excretion and water and salt balance, but to date knowledge of the mechanisms that facilitate homeostasis on land is largely restricted to model species. This review synthesizes the available literature describing amphibious lifestyles in cyprinodontiforms, compares the behavioural and physiological strategies used to exploit the terrestrial environment and suggests directions and ideas for future research. © 2015 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.

    Full Text Available The present study aims to provide data about the time required for Cynopoecilus melanotaenia kept at different temperatures to complete embryonic development. This information can be valuable for optimizing laboratory culture and facilitating future use of this species as a test organism in toxicity tests. Temperature effects on hatching rate are presented as well as information related to embryonic development stages. Eggs were observed daily, from start to finish of embryonic development. Thirteen developmental stages were described. Eggs were kept at two constant temperatures (20°C and 25°C and at a variable ambient temperature (16-25°C - mean = 21°C, sd = 1.95, to determine developmental rate (velocity at each temperature. A shorter incubation period was necessary to complete development at 25° ± 1°C. However, all embryos kept at this temperature hatched with morphological defects, which prevented their survival. No significant difference in developmental time period (p = 0.05 was observed at the 20°C and 16°-25°C (mean = 21°C, sd = 1.95 temperatures.

  9. Inferring Evolution of Habitat Usage and Body Size in Endangered, Seasonal Cynopoeciline Killifishes from the South American Atlantic Forest through an Integrative Approach (Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wilson J E M Costa

    Full Text Available Cynopoecilines comprise a diversified clade of small killifishes occurring in the Atlantic Forest, one of the most endangered biodiversity hotspots in the world. They are found in temporary pools of savannah-like and dense forest habitats, and most of them are highly threatened with extinction if not already extinct. The greatest gap in our knowledge of cynopoecilines stems from the absence of an integrative approach incorporating molecular phylogenetic data of species still found in their habitats with phylogenetic data taken from the rare and possibly extinct species without accessible molecular information. An integrative analysis combining 115 morphological characters with a multigene dataset of 2,108 bp comprising three nuclear loci (GLYT1, ENC1, Rho, provided a robust phylogeny of cynopoeciline killifishes, which was herein used to attain an accurate phylogenetic placement of nearly extinct species. The analysis indicates that the most recent common ancestor of the Cynopoecilini lived in open vegetation habitats of the Atlantic Forest of eastern Brazil and was a miniature species, reaching between 25 and 28 mm of standard length. The rare cases of cynopoecilines specialized in inhabiting pools within dense forests are interpreted as derived from four independent evolutionary events. Shifts in habitat usage and biogeographic patterns are tentatively associated to Cenozoic paleogeographic events, but the evolutionary history of cynopoecilines may be partially lost by a combination of poor past sampling and recent habitat decline. A sharp evolutionary shift directed to increased body size in a clade encompassing the genera Campellolebias and Cynopoecilus may be related to a parallel acquisition of an internally-fertilizing reproductive strategy, unique among aplocheiloid killifishes. This study reinforces the importance of adding morphological information to molecular databases as a tool to understand the biological complexity of organisms under intense pressure from loss of habitat.

  10. Gametogenesis and reproductive cycle of Melanorivulus aff. punctatus (Boulenger, 1895 (Cyprinodontiformes, Rivulidae in Chapada dos Guimarães, Mato Grosso, Brazil

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Monica Cassel

    Full Text Available The comprehension of the reproductive cycle allows to understand which are the morphological changes that develop in the gonad during this interval. Thus, many studies have been undertaken in order to describe and classify the stages of gonadal development and reproductive status of Neotropical fishes. For this purpose, specimens of Melanorivulus aff. punctatus were collected in a permanent dam in Chapada dos Guimarães, Mato Grosso, Brazil. The gonads were prepared for analysis by light microscopy. The oogenesis and spermatogenesis have been described, characterizing the stages of gonadal development, together with assessments of the gonadosomatic ratio, germ cell count and verification of variation of mature oocytes in females. Throughout the year the male gonads presented themselves as capable of reproducing, characterized by the presence of undifferentiated and differentiated spermatogonia, spermatocytes organized into cysts, spermatids in cysts whose wall was thicker and the spermatozoa was free in the lumen and the duct. This can indicate a continuous reproductive cycle with split spermiation. The females had gonads in the development stage from May to September with undifferentiated and differentiated oogonias and early oocytes always facing the lumen, abundant pre-vitellogenic and vitellogenic oocytes and some atresias. In the phase capable of spawning, observed from October to March, the mature oocytes are abundant, there are many post-ovulatory complexes and some atresia in advanced stage. The regression, observed in some individuals from February to April, is characterized by ovaries with many atresias and post-ovulatory complexes. The same results were found in the quantitative assessments. Therefore, it may be characterized as discontinuous cycle with split spawning. Thus, the reproductive cycle of this species can be characterized as continuous for males and discontinuous for females, which have a most intense phase of reproduction from October to March. However, both have fractional release of gametes.

    Full Text Available Este artigo analisa as três fotografias contidas no romance Nove Noites (2004, de Bernardo Carvalho, a partir da desconstrução de Jacques Derrida. Para tal análise, ressaltamos que a inserção delas ao texto narrativo sugere identidades culturais que se estabelecem como hierarquicamente superiores e desvelam outras. Para realizarmos essa análise, dividimos a priori as fotos do romance como pertencentes a arquivos públicos e privados e responsáveis por descarrilar uma fluidez de fronteiras pelas categorias narrativas de narrador/autor/personagem e, consequentemente, entre história e ficção. Através disso, propomos subsequentemente uma discussão a respeito da maneira pela qual descontroem-se também as identidades participantes do jogo narrativo de um romance avesso a conclusões. Posteriormente, propomos visualizar as fotografias não pelo que elas não trazem como presente, mas pelo que elas sugerem trazer a partir da leitura do romance. Assim, sugerimos uma presença do ausente nas fotografias. Deste modo, damos ênfase às ambiguidades, heterogeneidades e indefinições do romance que põem em cena as identidades culturais pela fotografia e pela narração. Por fim, demonstramos, a partir da relação estabelecida entre fotografia e narração, como as identidades culturais estão escondidas não apenas na representação artística, mas também na própria cultura em que elas deveriam ser mais visíveis.

  16. Rómulo de Carvalho's Work on the Popularization of Science During Salazarism

    Galamba, Arthur

    2013-10-01

    This article provides an account of Rómulo de Carvalho's most prominent works on the popularization of science during the Salazarist regime in Portugal. Carvalho has been praised for his `unique' writing style, for his uncommon ability to communicate scientific knowledge with clarity to a wide audience: he wrote to teachers, to secondary students, to the layman and even to the rural peasantry. Most of his books and articles on popularization explored the History and Philosophy of Science, and it has been claimed that he influenced many youngsters to pursue scientific careers. Given the repressive political context imposed by Salazarism, it is argued that Carvalho's work on the popularization of science had a humanist and libertarian connotation. However, intriguingly, different from some of his contemporaries who also promoted humanistic education for all, Carvalho was never targeted by the Dictatorship. The article seeks to shed light on this matter. It points out the educational reach of Carvalho's writings and suggests that popularization of science in repressive regimes is not necessarily a problematic issue as long as it does not threat the status quo.

At the same time it provides new possibilities for poetry and narrative, which emerge from their encounter with the language of cinema.

  5. Inner Ear Morphology in the Atlantic Molly Poecilia mexicana—First Detailed Microanatomical Study of the Inner Ear of a Cyprinodontiform Species

    Schulz-Mirbach, Tanja; Heß, Martin; Plath, Martin

    2011-01-01

    Background Fishes show an amazing diversity in hearing abilities, inner ear structures, and otolith morphology. Inner ear morphology, however, has not yet been investigated in detail in any member of the diverse order Cyprinodontiformes. We, therefore, studied the inner ear of the cyprinodontiform freshwater fish Poecilia mexicana by analyzing the position of otoliths in situ, investigating the 3D structure of sensory epithelia, and examining the orientation patterns of ciliary bundles of the sensory hair cells, while combining μ-CT analyses, scanning electron microscopy, and immunocytochemical methods. P. mexicana occurs in different ecotypes, enabling us to study the intra-specific variability (on a qualitative basis) of fish from regular surface streams, and the Cueva del Azufre, a sulfidic cave in southern Mexico. Results The inner ear of Poecilia mexicana displays a combination of several remarkable features. The utricle is connected rostrally instead of dorso-rostrally to the saccule, and the macula sacculi, therefore, is very close to the utricle. Moreover, the macula sacculi possesses dorsal and ventral bulges. The two studied ecotypes of P. mexicana showed variation mainly in the shape and curvature of the macula lagenae, in the curvature of the macula sacculi, and in the thickness of the otolithic membrane. Conclusions Our study for the first time provides detailed insights into the auditory periphery of a cyprinodontiform inner ear and thus serves a basis—especially with regard to the application of 3D techniques—for further research on structure-function relationships of inner ears within the species-rich order Cyprinodontiformes. We suggest that other poeciliid taxa, or even other non-poeciliid cyprinodontiforms, may display similar inner ear morphologies as described here. PMID:22110746

Inner ear morphology, however, has not yet been investigated in detail in any member of the diverse order Cyprinodontiformes. We, therefore, studied the inner ear of the cyprinodontiform freshwater fish Poecilia mexicana by analyzing the position of otoliths in situ, investigating the 3D structure of sensory epithelia, and examining the orientation patterns of ciliary bundles of the sensory hair cells, while combining μ-CT analyses, scanning electron microscopy, and immunocytochemical methods. P. mexicana occurs in different ecotypes, enabling us to study the intra-specific variability (on a qualitative basis) of fish from regular surface streams, and the Cueva del Azufre, a sulfidic cave in southern Mexico. The inner ear of Poecilia mexicana displays a combination of several remarkable features. The utricle is connected rostrally instead of dorso-rostrally to the saccule, and the macula sacculi, therefore, is very close to the utricle. Moreover, the macula sacculi possesses dorsal and ventral bulges. The two studied ecotypes of P. mexicana showed variation mainly in the shape and curvature of the macula lagenae, in the curvature of the macula sacculi, and in the thickness of the otolithic membrane. Our study for the first time provides detailed insights into the auditory periphery of a cyprinodontiform inner ear and thus serves a basis--especially with regard to the application of 3D techniques--for further research on structure-function relationships of inner ears within the species-rich order Cyprinodontiformes. We suggest that other poeciliid taxa, or even other non-poeciliid cyprinodontiforms, may display similar inner ear morphologies as described here.

    Full Text Available Apesar da importância econômica e social da aguardente de cana brasileira, são ainda muito escassos os estudos sobre sua qualidade sensorial, porém as crescentes exigências do mercado, tem feito crescer a preocupação com a qualidade dessa bebida. A aguardente de cana é muito apreciada por seu aroma e sabor característicos, que podem ainda melhorar pelo envelhecimento em recipientes de madeira. O complexo processo que ocorre durante o envelhecimento depende além de vários fatores, do tipo de madeira empregada, do tempo de maturação e obviamente da qualidade inicial do destilado. A análise descritiva quantitativa, metodologia muito aplicada na caracterização dos atributos sensoriais de alimentos e bebidas, foi utilizada neste trabalho para estudar o perfil sensorial da aguardente de cana, durante o envelhecimento, em toneis de carvalho. Nesse sentido, foram analisadas amostras de aguardente envelhecidas durante zero, 12, 24, 36 e 48 meses em um tonel de carvalho de 200 litros e duas amostras comerciais, sendo uma delas envelhecida. Dezesseis provadores pré-selecionados através de testes triangulares e análise sequencial, geraram pelo método rede (Kelly's Repertory Grid Method, os termos descritores das aguardentes. Após a etapa de treinamento, foram selecionados 10 provadores com base em seu poder de discriminação, repetibilidade e concordância com a equipe no uso de escalas. As amostras foram então apresentadas e avaliadas pelos provadores, em cabines individuais de forma monádica, com quatro repetições. Os resultados obtidos foram submetidos à análise de variância, teste de médias de Tukey e à Análise de Componentes Principais. Os termos descritores escolhidos em consenso pelos membros da equipe sensorial foram: coloração amarela, aroma alcoólico, aroma de madeira, aroma de baunilha, doçura inicial, doçura residual, sabor alcóolico inicial, sabor alcóolico residual, sabor de madeira inicial, sabor de

    Full Text Available Recreated in the early days of the Brazilian Republic (jan./1890 as a central agency, the General Directory of Statistics (DGE faced difficulties in consolidating the Brazilian statistical activity. A new time only was achieved when José Luiz Sayão de Bulhões Carvalho (1866-1940, a medical doctor specialist in public health dedicated to demographic studies and researches, took its direction (in two times for almost 17 years. His performance applied to facilitate the interaction of DGE with its similar agencies in the federation. He idealized agreements with provincial statistical agencies; imagined counsels (or committees for making collective decisions; imagined a national statistical conference based on the experience he has accumulated in two conferences of the International Statistical Institute (ISI; applied attention to the formation of a statistical professional community; encouraged and sponsored the translation of books, among other measures. The Census of 1920, he had made, the only major census at the Early Brazilian Republic, was guided by friendly relations with the federal and provincial statistical organizations and with the society (Catholic Church, media, unions, clubs etc.. It was, we can say, a modern census, using processing machines, and concluded in a timely fashion. The printed volumes of results were illustrated by pictorial graphics, also used at the Pavilion of Statistics, called (by the press the Pavilion of Precisely Science, which fixed the presence of DGE in the International Exhibit of the Brazilian Independence Centennial (1822-1922. With his experience, anticipated the basis of Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE, created in 1936 as the new Brazilian Statistical central agency (still working with growing success, that can be see, in sum, as a measure of his success in a long term vision.

Procurando descortinar os nexos essenciais existentes entre as transformações urbanas ocorridas  nessa  época  e  a  experiência  intelectual  protagonizada  por O. G. Rego  de Carvalho, analisa-se nesse estudo, como o referido literato pensou e registrou em seus textos, as tensões, os conflitos e os paradoxos vivenciados pela sociedade local, entre o final dos anos quarenta e início da década de sessenta. Em meio às questões centrais discutidas,  enfatiza-se,  primeiramente,  as  polêmicas  e  os  debates  em  torno  das mudanças  ocorridas  nas  sociabilidades  urbanas  e,  a  relação  existente  entre  essas mudanças e os projetos de renovação da produção literária, elaborados pelos homens de letras. Em seguida, a partir de uma análise da trilogia ficcional do literato, analisa-se a  sensação  de  dilaceramento  e  de  perda  das  referências  vivenciados  por  esses indivíduos, bem como o esforço empreendido por eles para, através da ficção, tentar descortinar  uma  experiência  narrativa  transcendental  e  salvadora.  Depois  de percorridos essa diversidade de textos, evidencia-se que, de modo geral, a atuação e a produção  intelectual  de O. G.

    Full Text Available O romance Nove noites, de Bernardo Carvalho, entrelaça morte e escrita numa narrativa intrigante, evidenciando os tênues limites entre realidade e ficção. A realidade dos fatos é buscada tenazmente pelo narrador jornalista, que a partir de certo momento, paradoxalmente, revela a preocupação de que o real arruine a ficção, por mais que esta pareça estar entre as expectativas do leitor. A escritura, entretanto, avança sem se deixar determinar, conduzida por locutores não-confiáveis, indecisos entre a verdade e a mentira, o real e a ficção, desembocando na questão da morte como impossibilidade de dizer e também de calar.Palavras-chave: Ficção e Realidade; Escrita e Morte; Impossibilidade de dizer e de calar.

    Full Text Available Este texto analisa o uso do espaço e de objetos escolares no ensino da Geografia a partir da perspectiva de Carlos Delgado de Carvalho. Para esse mestre, de formação francesa, adepto das teorias de Ratzel, apresentar o Brasil através dessa disciplina era uma missão cívica. Para tal, idealizou gabinetes nos quais recursos científicos foram utilizados para romper com os métodos de ensino de seu tempo, que se baseavam no verbalismo. O estudo dessa arquitetura e de seus objetos, a partir de uma perspectiva etnográfica, revela características da cultura material escolar da década de 1930.

    Full Text Available A comparative reading of the novels Native speaker (1995, by the North American writer Chang-rae Lee, and O sol se põe em São Paulo (2007, by Bernardo Carvalho, allows for a reevaluation of how minority identities have been constructed in the two American megalopolises New York and São Paulo. The plotlines of both nove ls hinge on the identity crisis of a second-generation Asian immigrant (from Korea in one case and Japan in the other who is seeking to negotiate his American identity (speaking in hemispheric terms in terms of his family‟s origin and language. However, despite the similar anxieties over assimilation present in both novels, they both reveal significant differences regarding the ways in which the United States and Brazil have responded to cultural difference even as they challenge national myths of inclusi on and belonging.

    Full Text Available A ten day aerated water soak was developed as a seed conditioning treatment for red oak (Quercus rubra L.. Conditioned seeds had higher germination completeness, uniformity and speed compared to control seeds. Seeds could be conditioned under a wide range of temperatures and durations. Conditioned seeds were maintained at 7(0C for 30 days without loss of seed quality. During conditioning, pericarps split in response to seed hydration. Split pericarps could be used as a pre-sowing indicator for high quality seeds. Seed conditioning was ineffective on dormant seeds. Increased crop uniformity and higher stand establishment can be realized by subjecting red oak acorns to an aerated water soak treatment followed by selecting seeds with split pericarps. These results are especially important in container production systems where limited numbers of value seeds are available.Sementes de carvalho vermelho (Quercus rubra L. foram condicionadas diretamente em água, sob aeração, durante 10 dias. As sementes condicionadas fisiologicamente apresentaram maior percentagem, velocidade e uniformidade de germinação, quando comparadas com a testemunha. O condicionamento das sementes pode ser efetuado sob ampla variação de temperaturas e períodos de exposição. Sementes condicionadas podem ser mantidas a 7ºC/30 dias, sem perda de qualidade. Durante o condicionamento ocorre ruptura do pericarpo, em resposta à hidratação da semente; essa ocorrência pode ser utilizada para estimar a qualidade da semente. O condicionamento não apresentou efeitos em sementes dormentes. O condicionamento das sementes de carvalho vermelho em água, com aeração, seguido pela seleção de sementes com ruptura do pericarpo, proporciona o rápido estabelecimento e uniformidade das plântulas.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho intenta refletir sobre a relação entre corpo e linguagem, a partir dos modos como ela é encenada em Nove noites, de Bernardo Carvalho, e “Meu tio o iauaretê, de Guimarães Rosa. No romance de Carvalho, narradores, agenciados pelo narrador-romancista, tentam esclarecer, a partir de múltiplos relatos, o suicídio de Buell Quain, que mutilou o próprio corpo, aniquilando-se, como resposta a um conflito entre seus desejos e o processo civilizatório que incide na existência de cada sujeito e a constitui. No conto de Rosa, por sua vez, o leitor depara com um narrador-escritor que, encenando o discurso oscilante do onceiro-jaguar, relata como o matou para salvar-se de ser devorado. Trata-se, portanto, de uma narrativa sobre a aniquilação de um corpo que, como último recurso à sobrevivência, volta-se à natureza animalesca, diante da incidência da linguagem impossível de realizar-se satisfatoriamente na língua (dominadora do outro. Como recursos a essa reflexão, são agenciadas a concepção de linguagem de Benveniste (1989a, 1989b, 1976a, 1976b, a noção de ficção de Iser (2002 e a leitura do conto de Rosa feita por Wey (2005.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available The genus Fluviphylax Whitley, 1965 is comprized of five valid species (F. pygmaeus Myers et Carvalho, 1955, F. zonatus, F. simplex, F. obscurus Costa, 1996, and F. palikur Costa et Le Bail, 1999, which are endemic to the Amazon region. These fishes are the smallest known South American vertebrates and among the smallest know vertebrates on Earth. All species but the type F. pygmaeus have been described in late 1990’s, and much remains unknown about the biology, taxonomy and systematics of this group of fishes. The aims of the present study were to establish the diploid and haploid number of F. zonatus and F. simplex, and to find species-specific markers for the discrimination of taxa. The diploid number for both species was 48 chromosomes, with no sex chromosome heteromorphism. Fluviphylax zonatus exhibited the karyotypic formula 4m+8sm+22st+14a and FN=82, and F. simplex exhibited 4m+16sm+18st+10a and FN=86. The determination of the total mean length of the chromosomes and their grouping into five size classes demonstrated different chromosome composition of the two species. This difference was further supported by the distribution of constitutive heterochromatin. The meiotic analysis revealed 24 bivalents in both species, but F. zonatus exhibited chromosomes with late pairing of the telomeric portions in the pachytene. These data reveal that cytogenetic characterization is useful and important for the discrimination of these species. Our study further indicates that this method could be employed in the analysis of other species of small fishes that are difficult to distinguish using traditional morphological traits or are morphologically cryptic.

    Full Text Available Se estableció el estado de conservación y se identificaron los riesgos que presentan los peces de la familia Goodeidae en la Mesa Central de México. Para ello se evaluó la disminución en el número de localidades y el área de distribución, y se incorporó una descripción limnológica en 53 localidades. Esta evaluación incluyó una comparación de las colecciones actuales con registros hist��ricos de la distribución de la familia. Un análisis de componentes principales de las variables limnológicas indicó que la mayoría de las especies de goodeidos habitan localidades caracterizadas por tener poca degradación ambiental, y sólo pocas especies parecen tener elevada tolerancia a dicho estado de contaminación. Los resultados de la disminución histórica de localidades y del área de distribución sugieren que el estado de conservación de las especies (de acuerdo con los criterios de la IUCN es el siguiente: una especie está extinta (Allotoca catarinae, una especie está extinta en la naturaleza (Skiffia francesae, ya que existen ejemplares en cautiverio, ocho están en peligro crítico (Allotoca goslinei, Allotoca regalis, Allotoca zacapuensis, Allodontichthys hubbsi, Ameca splendens, Characodon audax, Hubbsina turneri y Zoogoneticus tequila, once están en peligro, ocho se consideran como vulnerables, cuatro se pueden considerar en riesgo próximo y sólo dos parecen no enfrentar ningún riesgo. En conclusión, la pérdida de hábitat, la introducción de especies exóticas de peces, el ámbito geográfico restringido y la especialización ecológica de las especies son los principales factores de riesgo para las especies estudiadas de la familia Goodeidae. La supervivencia de este grupo requiere acciones para su conservación.Conservation status of Goodeidae familiy fishes (Cyprinodontiformes from the Mexican Central Plateau.

    2015-04-24

    Rivulus berovidesi, a new killifish species, is described from a small stream in Sierra de Cajalbana, northwestern Cuba. It is readily distinguished from Rivulus cylindraceus Poey by the combination of an exclusive color pattern and meristic characters such as a d-type frontal scalation pattern (versus e-type pattern in Rivulus cylindraceus). The current diagnosis of Rivulus berovidesi based on chromatic, morphological and meristic characters is consistent with a recent molecular analysis of this genus in Cuba.

  15. Discovery of endangered annual killifish Austrolebias cheradophilus (Aplocheiloidei: Rivulidae in Brazil, with comments on habitat, population structure and conservation status

    Luis Esteban Krause Lanés

    Full Text Available Austrolebias genus comprises about 40 small annual killifishes endemic to South America and their highest diversity occurs in southern Brazil and Uruguay, especially in drainages of Patos-Mirim system. Austrolebiasspecies are severely threatened with extinction because their life cycle and restricted ranges. Low dispersal ability and the extensive loss and fragmentation of freshwater wetlands contribute to this threat. Accurate information on the geographic distribution and ecology of the species, vital to plan conservation and management strategies, are scarce. In order to provide basic knowledge for annual fish conservation this paper reports the presence of Austrolebias cheradophilus and present data about its population structure (CPUA, size, sex ratio, length-weight relationships and condition factor and conservation status in southern Brazil. The estimated CPUA of populations was 0.86 fish/m2. Standard length (SL of males ranged between 32.14 and 49.17 mm and for females between 25.11 and 41.6 mm. There were no differences in SL between the sexes (t-test = - 1.678; P = 0.105, and Chi-squared test demonstrated marginal differences in proportions of sexes (2.25:1; χ2 = 3.846; P= 0.07. Allometric coefficient of the LWR was slightly hyperallometric (b = 3.08 and K of the specimens ranged from 1.84 to 2.42 (mean ± S.E. = 2.12 ± 0.04. Populations have low density and their biotopes are under critical threat, mainly due to suppression by agriculture, pastures for livestock and increase housing. The species is considered "Critically Endangered" in Brazil, furthermore is strongly recommended its inclusion on lists of endangered fauna and ensures the protection of their remaining habitats.

    Full Text Available ABTRACT Hypoptopomatinae is a monophyletic subfamily that includes 147 species, distributed in 20 genera. Otothyropsis is a genus of Hypoptopomatinae, recently described. Here, we provided the first cytogenetic information of Otothyropsis . The specimens were collected from córrego Dourado, a small tributary of rio Iguatemi, which flows into rio Paraná. The specimens of Otothyropsis cf. polyodon were analyzed with respect to diploid number, C-Band and Ag-NOR patterns. The diploid number was 54 chromosomes, distributed in 18 metacentric, 28 submetacentric, and 8 subtelocentric chromosomes, with single Ag-NOR and conspicuous heterochromatic blocks on the short and long arms of the 24th pair of chromosomes. Our study highlights the conservation trend of the diploid number (2n=54 and fundamental number (FN = 108 among the species of Hypoptopomatinae. However, the karyotype formula (18m+28sm+8st seems to be specific to O. cf. polyodon , considering the other Hypoptopomatinae species already analyzed.

  18. Frequency-dependence of mating success in Poeciliopsis monacha (Pisces, Cyprinodontiformes reproductive complex, Sonora, Mexico

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lima Neuza Rejane Wille

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available A diversity of all-female fishes of the genus Poeciliopsis coexists with their sexual ancestor species in streams of western Mexico. All-females are hybrids that depend on the sperm of paternal species to reproduce. Rare-female advantage is one of several hypotheses that attempt to explain how the diversity of all-female biotypes is maintained within the Poeciliopsis reproductive complexes. According to this hypothesis, the uncommon all-female biotype has a mating advantage over the common ones and has been maintained by a dynamic equilibrium process. In the P. monacha reproductive complex at Arroyo de los Platanos the density of two all-female biotypes (P. 2monacha-lucida I and II varies across pools. The objective of this study was to analyse fecundity and mating success of females from this arroyo to test the hypothesis. Female mating success was inversely correlated to their density, supporting this hypothesis.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT Morphological variations, according to the principles of ecomorphology, can be related to different aspects of the organism way of life, such as occupation of habitats and feeding behavior. The present study sought to examine the intraspecific variation in two populations of Poecilia reticulata Peters, 1859, that occur in two types of environments, a lotic (Maringá Stream and a lentic (Jaboti Lake. Due to a marked sexual dimorphism, males and females were analyzed separately. Thus, the proposed hypotheses were that the populations that occur in distinct environments present morphological differences. The morphological variables were obtained using morphometric measurements and the ecomorphological indexes. The data were summarized in a Principal Component Analysis (PCA. A Multivariate Analysis of Variance (Manova was made to verify significant differences in morphology between the populations. Males and females showed similar ecomorphological patterns according to the environment they occur. In general the population from Maringá Stream had fins with major areas, and the Jaboti Lake population eyes located more dorsally. Additionally, others morphological differences such as wider mouth of the males from Maringá Stream, wider heads on Jaboti Lake females and more protractible mouths on males from Jaboti Lake suggest a set of environmental variables that can possibly influence the ecomorphological patterns of the populations, as the water current, availability of food resources and predation. In summary, the initial hypotheses could be confirmed, evidencing the occurrence of distinct ecomorphotypes in the same species according to the environment type.

    The study reports the accumulation, distribution and metabolism of technical endosulfan in Jenynsia multidentata. Adult females were exposed to acute sublethal concentrations (0.072, 0.288 and 1.4 μg L -1 ). After 24 h, fish were sacrificed and gills, liver, brain, intestine and muscle were removed. Results show that both isomers of technical-grade endosulfan (α- and β-) are accumulated in fish tissues and biotransformation to endosulfan sulfate occurs at all concentrations tested. Significantly differences in endosulfan accumulation were only found at 1.4 μg L -1 but not between the lowest concentrations. However a similar distribution pattern was observed at all exposure levels where liver, intestine and brain had the highest levels of α-, β-endosulfan and endosulfan sulfate. Moreover, liver and brain showed the highest endosulfan sulfate:α-endosulfan ratios due to high biotransfomation capacity. J. multidentata demonstrated to be a sensitive species under exposure to technical endosulfan and, therefore, could be used to assess aquatic pollution. - Highlights: → Acute exposure of Jenynsia multidentata to technical-grade endosulfan. → Endosulfan bioaccumulation in different organs of Jenynsia multidentata. → Technical-grade endosulfan biotransformation to endosulfan sulfate. - Endosulfan is accumulated in organs of J. multidentata as well as biotransformed to endosulfan sulfate, which relative abundance points out the time from exposure.

    We assessed changes in spontaneous swimming activity and acetylcholinesterase (AchE) activity of Jenynsia multidentata exposed to Endosulfan (EDS). Females of J. multidentata were exposed to 0.072 and 1.4 mug L{sup -1} EDS. Average speed and movement percentage were recorded during 48 h. We also exposed females to EDS at five concentrations between 0.072 and 1.4 mug L{sup -1} during 24 h, and measured the AchE activity in brain and muscle. At 0.072 mug L{sup -1} EDS swimming motility decreased relative to the control group after 45 h, while at 1.4 mug L{sup -1} EDS swimming motility decreased after 24 h. AchE activity significantly decreased in muscle when J. multidentata were exposed to EDS above 0.072 mug L{sup -1}, while no significant changes were observed in brain. Thus, changes in swimming activity and AchE activity in muscle are good biomarkers of exposure to EDS in J. multidentata. - This work reports changes observed in spontaneous swimming activity and AchE activity of Jenynsia multidentata exposed to sublethal concentrations of Endosulfan.

    Full Text Available Osteological and soft anatomical features of representatives of poeciliine genera were studied to test the monophyly of the poeciliine tribes and to advance a hypothesis of relationships within the subfamily. The resultant hypothesis supports the proposal of a new classification for the subfamily Poeciliinae. Diagnoses are provided for suprageneric clades. The tribe Tomeurini is resurrected and the new tribes Brachyrhaphini and Priapichthyini as well as the supertribe Poeciliini are described. New usages of old tribe names are proposed based on the phylogenetic framework.

    Six helminth species were recorded during the helminthological examination of 35 specimens of the goodeid Xenotaenia resolanae from Arroyo Durazno, Jalisco, Mexico, a tributary of the Cuzalapa River. Helminth species identified included: 4 species of digeneans, i.e., Posthodiplostomum minimum (metacercariae), Clinostomum companatum (metacercariae), Dendrorchis sp. (adult), and Margotrema guillerminae (adult); and 2 species of nematodes, i.e., Spiroxys sp. (larvae) and Rhabdochona ahuehuellensis (adult). A very low number of individual larvae were found. The observed species richness, individual parasite abundance, and diversity were low at both component community and infracommunity levels. The values of similarity between infracommunities were relatively high because of the predominance of the digenean M. guillerminae, the species that reached the higher values of both prevalence and abundance. High water flow of the collecting site is suggested as the main factor determining the depauperate helminth assemblage in this fish species.

  7. Three new species of the killifish genus Melanorivulus from the central Brazilian Cerrado savanna (Cyprinodontiformes, Aplocheilidae

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Three new species are described from the Neotropical region comprising the Cerrado savannas of the central Brazilian plateaus, which is among the most important biodiversity centres in the world. These species are considered closely related to M. dapazi from the same region, with which they share the presence of a rudimentary interarcual cartilage and a dark reddish brown distal margin on the male anal fin. The group comprising M. dapazi and the three new species is here named as the M. dapazi species group. Melanorivulus ignescens sp. n., from the upper Rio Araguaia basin, is distinguished from all other species of the M. dapazi group by the anal-fin colour pattern in males; M. flavipinnis sp. n. and M. regularis sp. n. from the Rio Paraguai basin are distinguished from all other congeners of the M. dapazi group by the colour pattern of the caudal fin and number of scales in the longitudinal series, respectively. All the new species are further unambiguously diagnosed by unique combinations of morphological characters, including meristic and morphometric data, and colour patterns. This study reinforces the importance of using live colour patterns to diagnose species and species groups of the genus Melanorivulus, but also indicates that osteological characters may be informative for species diagnosis. This study confirms the high diversity of species of Melanorivulus in the central Brazilian Cerrado plateaus already reported in previous studies, indicating that endemic species are often restricted to short segments of a single river drainage.

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Inter-population differences in otolith shape, morphology and chemistry have been used effectively as indicators for stock assessment or for recognizing environmental adaptation in fishes. However, the precise parameters that affect otolith morphology remain incompletely understood. Here we provide the first direct support for the hypothesis that inter-population differences in otolith morphology are genetically encoded. The study is based on otolith morphology and two mitochondrial markers (D-loop, 16S rRNA of three natural populations of Aphanius fasciatus (Teleostei: Cyprinodontidae from Southeast Tunisia. Otolith and genetic data yielded congruent tree topologies. Divergence of populations likely results from isolation events in the course of the Pleistocene sea level drops. We propose that otolith morphology is a valuable tool for resolving genetic diversity also within other teleost species, which may be important for ecosystem management and conservation of genetic diversity. As reconstructions of ancient teleost fish faunas are often solely based on fossil otoliths, our discoveries may also lead to a new approach to research in palaeontology.

    Full Text Available Abstract. Monalonion velezangeli is considered one of the most harmful pests of avocado cv. Hass, as far as it attacks vegetative buds, flowers and fruits during all the productive stages of the crop. This situation is aggravated by the lack of knowledge on insect preferences and their relationship with crop phenology. As a contribution to the management of this insect, we studied the relationship between plant phenology and the presence of M. velezangeli, as well as its preferences across tree strata and structures. Data were obtained from six orchards located in the Colombian departments of Antioquia, Caldas and Quindío. After randomly selecting 20 trees at each orchard, 12 branches were marked on each tree, covering the combinations of the four cardinal points with three plant strata (low, medium and high. During a period of 12 months, each branch was monitored by recording its phenological stage (vegetative, flowering and fruiting, the number of individuals of M. velezangeli and the presence of fresh damages on it. An analysis of variance determined that the presence of the insect and its damage were more abundant on the flowering and fruiting branches than on the vegetative ones, as well as in the medium and upper strata of the trees. The damage caused by M. velezangeli was observed to be significantly higher in the reproductive structures (flowers and fruits as compared to the vegetative structures.Resumen. Monalonion velezangeli es considerada una de las principales plagas del aguacate cv. Hass en Colombia, debido a que ataca brotes vegetativos, flores y frutos, durante todas las etapas productivas del cultivo. Esta situación se ve agravada por el desconocimiento de las preferencias del insecto, así como de su relación con la fenología de la planta. Como un aporte al manejo de este insecto, se estudió la relación entre la fenología de la planta y la presencia de Monalonion, así como sus preferencias por estructura y estrato. Las observaciones se hicieron en seis huertos ubicados en los departamentos de Antioquia, Caldas y Quindío (Colombia. Se eligieron 20 árboles por finca; en cada uno, se marcaron 12 ramas que correspondían a las combinaciones de los cuatro puntos cardinales en tres estratos (bajo, medio y alto. En la rama seleccionada se registró, durante 12 meses, su estado fenológico (vegetativo, floración o fructificación, el número de individuos de M. velezangeli y los daños frescos presentes. Mediante análisis de varianza, se determinó que la presencia del insecto, así como su daño fueron mayores sobre las ramas en floración y fructificación y en los estratos alto y medio de los árboles. El daño causado por M. velezangeli fue significativamente mayor en las estructuras reproductivas (flores y frutos en relación con las estructuras vegetativas.

The bug monalonion, coclicllo o chupanga (Monalonion velezangeli generates damage in avocado end buds, affecting the tree development. When the attack is located on the fruit it causes its drying and therefore its rejection. There are no strategies to manage this plague, so producers use insecticides without any evaluation about their effectiveness. In this research, we evaluated insecticides with a novel mode of action on M. velezangeli under controlled conditions. We used a randomized complete block design, with eleven treatments and four replications. The treatment set was composed by deltamethrin, λ-cyhalothrin, imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, spinosad, spiromesifen, diflubenzuron, diafentiuron, a mixture of thiamethoxam + λ-cyhalothrin; and additionally, a control treatment with water and a control treatment with no application. The experimental unit was a common guava shrub with ten insects confined within a tul cage. Treatments were applied once with the insects inside the cage. Deltamethrin, λ-cyhalothrin, thiamethoxam, imidacloprid and the mixture of thiamethoxam + λ-cyhalothrin caused mortalities between 85 and 100% on M. velezangeli 24 hours after being applied; three days after application, mortality is 100%. These products can be included in an integrated pest management program for M. velezangeli. Diafenturion caused mortalities between 51 and 81%. No effect of diafenturion, diflubenzuron or spiromesifen was evidenced on exposed adult progeny, but treated nymphs that became adult originated a lesser quantity of nymphs. This effect should be better elucidated.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we discuss the end of the project of a national literature a s a guiding project of the Brazilian novel, having in mind the changes in the construction of the narrator and the representation of natural and social landscapes. To characterize such conditions, we review Echevarría’s proposition that the 19th - century La tin American novel adopted the local landscape as an identity symbol under the interpretive and authoritative mediation of non -fictional discourse. Then, we analyze Süssekind’s characterizations of fictional narrators that consolidated that function in Bra zil until the 20th century. In contrast, in Hatoum’s and Carvalho’s works, the multiplication of voices, the fragmentation of truths and the self - observation of the narrator block the mobilization of the landscape for an identity - function, in a deviation o f the founding assumptions of a national literature which indicates its demise as a common project – an important historical transition for the Brazilian novel.

    Full Text Available La Mesa Central de México cuenta aproximadamente con 100 especies nativas de peces, el 70% son endémicas de la región. Los ecosistemas de esa área geográfica son sobre los que mayor impacto ha tenido la actividad antropogénica. El grupo de peces más representativo es el de los goodeidos que aparentemente han sobrevivido a grandes cambios de calidad de agua y flujo hídrico. Para entender los cambios en la distribución de esta familia, el presente trabajo documenta las desapariciones y extinciones locales de especies de goodeidos y su relación con las diferentes regiones de la Mesa Central. Para conocer su distribución previa, se realizó una búsqueda bibliográfica y en bases de datos de colecciones. Estos registros se compararon con recolectas realizadas entre junio de 1999 y septiembre del 2004 en 287 localidades en 15 estados de la República Mexicana. Se cubrió el 95% de los sitios de recolecta que presentaban registros previos. La comparación entre distribuciones arrojó que en el 68% de estos sitios se registró la desaparición de alguna especie. En 9 de las 18 regiones, las especies previamente registradas redujeron su distribución a la mitad, han desaparecido 5 en más del 50% de su intervalo de distribución y al menos 2 se señalan como extintas. Las especies se clasificaron según su vulnerabilidad y las localidades fueron categorizadas de acuerdo al promedio de desaparición de poblaciones. Se discute el efecto de las extinciones sobre la viabilidad de las especies a largo plazo, y la pertinencia de establecer áreas de conservación para los goodeidos. Las extinciones locales pueden afectar la viabilidad de las especies, y por lo tanto es urgente generar áreas de conservación para los godeidos.The Mexican central plateau hosts around 100 native freshwater fish species, 70% of which are endemic to the region. Freshwater ecosystems in this area are highly impacted by anthropogenic activities. Goodeids are the most representative fish in lakes and rivers in the central plateau. In recent decades, these fishes have suffered from water quality depletion and modification of hydrological regimes, leading to reduction of their original distributions. To understand changes in the distribution of species of this family, we documented local extinctions of its species and its relation with their sensitivity to environmental changes. Previous distribution records for each species were obtained from bibliographical sources and museum collection data. We compared previous distribution with more recent fieldwork data, which was conducted between 1999 and 2004, in 287 localities in 15 states of the country. Fieldwork covered 95% of the localities sampled in previous records. We found local extinction in 68% of the localities surveyed. In 9 of the 18 regions, species distribution was reduced to half of their reported areas. Five species have disappeared in 50% of their original distributional range, and at least 2 species are already extinct. We classified Goodeid species according to their vulnerability and localities were categorized by the quantity of local extinctions. Local extinctions may affect species viability, and it is therefore urgent to generate areas of conservation for goodeids.

  15. Let's jump in: A phylogenetic study of the great basin springfishes and poolfishes, Crenichthys and Empetrichthys (Cyprinodontiformes: Goodeidae.

    D Cooper Campbell

    Full Text Available North America's Great Basin has long been of interest to biologists due to its high level of organismal endemicity throughout its endorheic watersheds. One example of such a group is the subfamily Empetricthyinae. In this paper, we analyzed the relationships of the Empetrichtyinae and assessed the validity of the subspecies designations given by Williams and Wilde within the group using concatenated phylogenetic tree estimation and species tree estimation. Samples from 19 populations were included covering the entire distribution of the three extant species of Empetricthyinae-Crenichthys nevadae, Crenichthys baileyi and Empetricthys latos. Three nuclear introns (S8 intron 4, S7 intron 1, and P0 intron 1 and one mitochondrial gene (Cytb were sequenced for phylogenetic analysis. Using these sequences, we generated two separate hypotheses of the evolutionary relationships of Empetrichtyinae- one based on the mitochondrial data and one based on the nuclear data using Bayesian phylogenetics. Haplotype networks were also generated to look at the relationships of the populations within Empetrichthyinae. After comparing the two phylogenetic hypotheses, species trees were generated using *BEAST with the nuclear data to further test the validity of the subspecies within Empetrichthyinae. The mitochondrial analyses supported four lineages within C. baileyi and 2 within C. nevadae. The concatenated nuclear tree was more conserved, supporting one clade and an unresolved polytomy in both species. The species tree analysis supported the presence of two species within both C. baileyi and C. nevadae. Based on the results of these analyses, the subspecies designations of Williams and Wilde are not valid, rather a conservative approach suggests there are two species within C. nevadae and two species within C. baileyi. No structure was found for E. latos or the populations of Empetricthyinae. This study represents one of many demonstrating the invalidity of subspecies and their detriment to species identification, conservation, and understanding.

    Eight species are recognised in the Aphanius dispar group. Aphanius dispar from the Red and Mediterranean Sea basins, A. stoliczkanus from coastal areas of the Arabian/Persian Gulf, the northern Arabian Sea east to Gujarat in India, the Gulf of Oman and some endorheic basins in Iran and Pakistan, A. richardsoni from springs in the Dead Sea basin in Jordan and Israel, A. sirhani from the Azraq Oasis in Jordan, A. ginaonis from one spring in Iran, A. furcatus from few streams and springs in Iran and A. stiassnyae from one lake in Ethiopia. Aphanius kruppi, new species, from the Wadi al Batha drainage in northern Oman, is distinguished from adjacent A. stoliczkanus by having 9-14 brown or grey lateral bars on the flank in the male, a roundish, diamond-shaped or somewhat vertically-elongate blotch centred on the caudal-fin base in the female and 2-3 scale rows on the caudal-fin base. The available molecular genetic data for A. dispar reject the hypothesis of the presence of a single widespread coastal species in the Middle East and make it likely that two additional unidentified species occur in the Red Sea basin.

    Full Text Available Fundulus lima inhabits river drainage systems and is threatened after the introduction of cichlids in the area. To support conservation programs, the spatial and temporal variation of the diet composition of this endangered killifish, was determined in two oasis systems of Baja California Sur, Mexico (San Ignacio and La Purisima river drainages, during rainy and dry seasons. F. lima was captured by using passive and active capture techniques. A total of 192 stomach contents of F. lima was analyzed. The contribution of each prey item in the diet composition was quantified by means of the indices of occurrence frequency (% OF, numerical (%N and volume (%V percentages. The relative importance of each prey item was determined according to the percentage of the Relative Importance Index (%RII. The similarity of the diet was calculated between hydrological basins (populations combined by basin, seasons (rainy versus dry months, sexes and size classes, by using Schoener’s resource overlap index. We used two ecological indices to determine the type of feeding strategy exhibited by the fish: (1 niche breadth of Levins and (2 proportional similarity of Feisinger. Sand was the most abundant item in the stomach content of killifishes from both drainages (39% and 47%, respectively. Diet composition was similar for both drainages (74% as well as among their respective size classes; however, it was different between sexes. In both drainages, F. lima predated mainly on diatom algae, dipterous and trichopteran larvae, and fish scales during the dry season; while it preferred dipterous larvae, filamentous algae and ostracods in the rainy season. A feeding strategy of opportunist type was exhibited by F. lima during the rainy season, changing to specialist type during the dry season.

Para poder llevar a cabo programas de conservación, fue determinada la dieta de la sardinilla peninsular en peligro de extinción, en dos sistemas de oasis de Baja California Sur, México (cuencas de los rios San Ignacio y La Purísima, durante las épocas secas y de lluvias. Una gran proporción de arena fue encontrada en el contenido estomacal de este pez para ambas cuencas (39% y 47%, respectivamente. La composición de la dieta fue similar entre ambas cuencas (74%, como también dentro de sus respectivas clases de tallas; sin embargo, fue diferente entre sexos. Durante la época de secas, F. lima consumió principalmente diatomeas, larvas de dípteros y tricópteros, además de escamas de peces; mientras que en la época de lluvias tuvo preferencia por las larvas de dípteros, algas filamentosas y ostrácodos. Este pez exhibe una estrategia alimentaria de tipo oportunista durante la época de lluvias, la cual cambia a tipo especialista en la época de secas. Esta información será la base para futuras investigaciones relacionadas con la conservación de esta especie, en peligro de extinción, y su hábitat

    Full Text Available Five species of Cyprinodon in Laguna Chichancanab, Yucatan, Mexico comprise a young species flock whose ecology and evolution has not been thoroughly studied, but whose existence is threatened with extinction. Species flocks evolve in isolated areas where predators and competitors are absent. Since the description of the Chichancanab flock, Oreochromis mossambicus, a species introduced into the lake for which I examined habitat in the 1980’s, has become common throughout the basin. I assessed relative abundance of flock species in the lake. examined habitat use and segregation among the three most common flock species and examined the affects of O. mossambicus upon flock species habitat use. Cyprinodon beltrani was the most abundant flock species in 1997, followed by C. maya and C. labiosus; C. verecundus and C. simus were rare. Cyprinodon beltrani was found in shallow water, nearshore, over thick beds of submerged Chara, and little emergent vegetation Cyprinodon beltrani exhibited diurnal variation in nearshore habitat use. In the field, the habitat use of C. beltrani and O. mossambicus broadly overlapped. In aquarium experiments, three flock species exhibited habitat use segregation and C. beltrani and C. labiosus showed agonistic behaviors that strengthened segregation. Cyprinodon maya differed from C. beltrani and C. labiosus by its greater dispersion of individuals and use of areas higher in the water column. The presence of O. mossambicus caused a shift in habitat use by C. maya and C. labiosus that put these species into habitat occupied by C. beltrani. The presence of introduced species has caused a significant perturbation of the conditions that fomented speciation of the Chichancanab flock 8000 years ago.Cinco especies de Cyprinodon en la Laguna Chichancanab, Yucatán, México comprenden un cardumen jóven de especies cuya ecología y evolución no ha sido estudiada a fondo, pero cuya existencia está siendo amenazada con la extinción. Los cardúmenes de peces evolucionan en áreas aisladas donde los depredadores y los competidores están ausentes. Desde la descripción del cardumen de Chichancanab, Oreachromis mossambicus, una especie introducida al lago de la cual yo examiné el hábitat en los 80's, se ha vuelto común en toda la laguna. Yo evalué la abundancia relativa de especies del cardumen en el lago y uso de hábitat y segregación entre la especies del cardumen más comunes y examiné los efectos de O. mossambicus en el uso de hábitat de las especies del cardumen. Cyprinodon beltrani fué la especie de cardumen más abundante en 1997, seguida por C. maya y C. labiosus; C. verecundus y C. simus fueron muy raras. Cyprinodon beltrani fue encontrada en aguas someras, cerca de la costa, sobre lechos densos de Chara y poca vegetación emergente. Cyprinodon beltrani exhibió variación diurna en el uso del hábitat cerca de la costa. En el campo, el uso de hábitat de C. beltrani y O. mossambicus se traslapaban ampliamente. En experimentos en acuarios, tres especies de cardumen exhibieron segregación de uso de hábitat y C. beltrani y C. labiosus mostraron comportamientos agonísticos que fortalecen la segregación. Cyprinodon maya se diferencia de C. beltrani y C. labiosus por su mayor dipersión de individuos y uso de áreas más altas en la columna de agua. La presentación de O. mossambicus causó un cambio en el uso de hábitat de C. maya y C. labiosus que puso a estas especies dentro del hábitat ocupado por C. beltrani. La presencia de esta especie introducida ha ausado una perturbación significante de las condiciones que fomentaron especiación de cardumen de Chichancanab hace 8 000 años.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we provide an updated diagnosis for Pseudopaludicola giarettai based on the morphometric and acoustic variation observed with the assessment of new populations, plus an expansion of its distribution range. Our results support that all acoustic variation observed might be attributed to intraspecific variation. The variation in body size and dorsal stripe patterns observed for Pseudopaludicola giarettai reinforces that the distinctive whistling advertisement call pattern is the most reliable evidence line to diagnose it from its congeners, whereas morphological (robust body, glandular dorsum and morphometric (body size features vary considerably within and among populations so that they should no longer be employed as diagnostic features of Pseudopaludicola giarettai.

    Full Text Available Inúmeras pesquisas analisaram variados aspectos acerca do exercício do poder durante o regime militar, destacando inclusive a repressão e a violência levada a cabo pelas forças repressivas contra os grupos políticos que se opuseram a esse regime. Contudo, depois de anos de pesquisas novos olhares começam a ser lançados sobre a ditadura no Brasil. Como havia uma concepção bastante ampla relativa às tensões e aos antagonismos existentes no país e com os segmentos sociais que poderiam provocá-las, este trabalho tem como objetivo analisar a violência do Estado contra as classes populares, tendo em vista que foram consideradas como portadoras de um potencial desagregador e perigoso e despreparadas para viver em uma sociedade moderna, industrializada e de vida marcadamente urbana.

    Gyrodactylus mexicanus n. sp. and Gyrodactylus lamothei n. sp. are described from the fins and skin of Girardinichthys multiradiatus, an endemic freshwater fish from central Mexico. Gyrodactylus mexicanus is compared to other Gyrodactylus species that parasitize Fundulus spp., the phylogenetically closest group to the Goodeidae from North America. Gyrodactylus mexicanus is distinguished by having large anchors with well-developed superficial roots, enlarged hooks with a proximally disrupted shank (ligament), and a ventral bar with 2 poorly developed anterolateral projections and a small medial process. Gyrodactylus lamothei is distinguished from G. mexicanus and from other species of Gyrodactylus on the North American continent by having anchors with a sclerite on the superficial root and robust hooks with a straight shaft and a recurved point.

    Full Text Available This work aimed to know the tolerance mechanisms through the salinity variation by Na+ K+ - ATPase and Mg++ - ATPase and enzymes encountered in the gills of Poecilia vivipara. In field, the presence of this species was observed in salinities of 0 and 28‰. In laboratory, these fish were maintained in aquarium with mean salinity of 30‰ and positive responses were obtained. Some adult specimens, collected in a lagoon of the Coqueiros Beach, were utilized as matrixes. In the experiments the specimens used were those born in the test aquarium. For each salinity studied three replicates were made with three specimens for each one. The alevins were maintained in salinities of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35‰ during a month for adaptation. Gills were extracted in appropriate buffer for isolation of plasma membrane and used for specific dosage of the total enzymatic activity of Na+ K+ - ATPase and Mg++ - ATPase. The relation of alevins to their adaptation towards the salinity variation was also studied. The activity of the two enzymes showed a different result. The major expression of Na+ K+ - ATPase was observed in 20‰ (35 µmoles Pi.mg protein.h-1, the best salinity to cultivate P. vivipara.Este trabalho teve como objetivo conhecer os mecanismos de tolerância às variações de salinidade, pelas enzimas Mg++ - ATPase e Na+ K+ - ATPase, encontrada nas brânquias de Poecilia vivipara.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT Headwater creeks are environments susceptible to invasion by non-native fishes. We evaluated the reproduction of 22 populations of the non-native livebearers guppy Poecilia reticulata, black molly Poecilia sphenops, Yucatan molly Poecilia velifera, green swordtail Xiphophorus hellerii, southern platyfish Xiphophorus maculatus, and variable platyfish Xiphophorus variatus during an annual cycle in five headwater creeks located in the largest South American ornamental aquaculture center, Paraíba do Sul River basin, southeastern Brazil. With few exceptions, females of most species were found reproducing (stages 2, 3, 4 all year round in the creeks and gravid females of all species showed small sizes indicating stunting. Juveniles were frequent in all sites. The fecundity of the six poeciliids was always low in all periods. The sex ratio was biased for females in most species, both bimonthly as for the whole period. Water temperature, water level and rainfall were not significantly correlated with reproduction in any species. Therefore, most populations appeared well established. The pertinence of different management actions, such as devices to prevent fish escape, eradication with rotenone and research about negative effects on native species, is discussed in the light of current aquaculture practices in the region.

    Austrolebias wichi, new species, is herein described from seasonal ponds of the Bermejo river basin in the Western Chacoan district in northwestern Argentina. This species was found in a single pond, a paleochannel of the Bermejo River, which is seriously disturbed by soybean plantations surrounding it. Despite intensive sampling in the area, this species was only registered in this pond where it was relatively scarce. Therefore, we consider this species as critically endangered. This species is the sister species of A. patriciae in our phylogenetic analyses and is similar, in a general external aspect, to A. varzeae and A. carvalhoi. It can be distinguished among the species of Austrolebias by its unique color pattern in males. Additionally, from A. varzeae by presenting a supraorbital band equal or longer than the infraorbital band (vs. shorter) and from A. patriciae by the convex dorsal profile of head (vs. concave). Further diagnostic characters and additional comments on its ecology and reproduction are provided.

    Full Text Available Histopathological alterations in liver have been widely used as a tool in studies for monitoring environmental quality. To evaluate the environmental quality in the Cachoeira river, five spots were monitored between the municipal districts of Itapé and Ilhéus, using liver histological analysis. The species chosen for analysis was Poecilia vivipara due to the fact that it is one of the most abundant in the sampling. The routine technique of inclusion and impregnation in paraffin was used, and the cuts were stained with Hematoxylin and Eosin (H & E. Histopathological alterations in the liver were evaluated semi-quantitatively and based on the severity of the lesions. The results of the histopathological alteration frequency together with the average taken from the Histopathological Alteration Index from points 1 (Vila de Itapé and 2 (Fazenda Santa Amélia showed that in this area the environment is more threatened because of some stressor agent, possibly contaminants that seem to be acting in the environment and endangering the health of fish. The statistic results demonstrated that there were no significant differences among points 1, 2 and 4, which means they are very similar to one another, and are ecologically endangered.

    Full Text Available In order to establish the helminthological record of the viviparous fish species Zoogoneticus purhepechus, 72 individuals were collected from 2 localities, La Luz spring (n= 45 and Los Negritos spring (n= 27, both in the lower Lerma River, in Michoacán state, Mexico. Twelve helminth taxa were recovered, 5 adults (the digeneans Margotrema bravoae and Phyllodistomum sp., the cestode Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, the nematode Rhabdochona lichtenfelsi and the acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus cf. bulbocolli, and 7 larvae (the metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum, the cysticercoid of Cyclophyllidea, the nematodes Rhabdochona sp., Eustrongylides sp., Contracaecum sp. and Spiroxys sp., and the cysthacanth of Polymorphus brevis. Of these, R. lichtenfelsi was the most prevalent and abundant species at La Luz spring with 15.6% and 0.33 individuals per analyzed host. The remaining species were relatively more rare and infrequent. The helminth parasite community of Z. purhepechus at Los Negritos spring was remarkably poor and abundance was very low. The omnivorous feeding habits, the position of the host species in the food web, and the environmental characteristics of each locality are suggested as the main factors determining the helminth parasite communities in this freshwater fish.Se examinaron 72 individuos del pez vivíparo Zoogoneticus purhepechus para establecer el registro helmintológico de la especie. Los huéspedes se recolectaron de los manantiales La Luz (n= 45 y Los Negritos (n= 27, ubicados en la porción baja del río Lerma, en el estado de Michoacán, México. El registro helmintológico consta de 12 especies, incluyendo como adultos los digéneos Margotrema bravoae y Phyllodistomum sp., el céstodo Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, el nemátodo Rhabdochona lichtenfelsi, y el acantocéfalo Pomphorhynchus cf. bulbocolli. Además, como estadios larvarios, se encontraron las metacercarias de Clinostomum complanatum, el cisticercoide de Cyclophyllidea, los nemátodos Rhabdochona sp., Contracaecum sp., Eustrongylides sp. y Spiroxys sp., y el cistacanto de Polymorphus brevis. De éstas, R. lichtenfelsi fue la especie más frecuente y abundante en el manantial La Luz, en tanto que las restantes fueron relativamente más raras. La comunidad de helmintos de Z. purhepechus en el manantial Los Negritos fue pobre y poco abundante. Se sugiere que los principales factores que determinan la estructura de la comunidad de helmintos son los hábitos alimentarios omnívoros de los huéspedes, la posición que éstos ocupan en la red trófica y las características ambientales de cada localidad.

    Full Text Available A genetic and morphometric study of populations of Zoogoneticus quitzeoensis (Bean, 1898 from the Lerma and Ameca basins and Cuitzeo, Zacapu and Chapala Lakes in Central Mexico was conducted. For the genetic analysis, 7 populations were sampled and 2 monophyletic groups were identified with a genetic difference of D HKY= 3.4% (3-3.8%, one being the populations from the lower Lerma basin, Ameca and Chapala Lake, and the other populations from Zacapu and Cuitzeo Lakes. For the morphometric analysis, 4 populations were sampled and 2 morphotypes identified, 1 from La Luz Spring in the lower Lerma basin and the other from Zacapu and Cuitzeo Lakes drainages. Using these 2 sources of evidence, the population from La Luz is regarded as a new species Zoogoneticus purhepechus sp. nov. The new species differs from its sister species Zoogoneticus quitzeoensis in having a shorter preorbital distance (Prol/SL or = 0.056, SD = 0.01, longer dorsal fin base length (DFL/SL or = 0.18, SD = 0.03 and 13-14 rays in the dorsal fin. The new species differs from both members of its sister taxon (Zoogoneticus tequila and Z. quitzeoensis at 10 fixed nucleotide positions in the cytochrome b gene. We have determined that Zoogoneticus purhepechus is distributed in the lower Lerma, upper Ameca, Armeria and Santiago river basins, and Chapala Lake.

    Full Text Available Viver em sociedade é uma característica do Homo sapiens, e esta vantagem permitiu-lhe ocupar tantos biomas. Aumento populacional e desenvolvimento tecnológico trouxeram paralelamente acréscimo ao volume de dejetos eliminados nos mananciais de água. Conhecer modelos biológicos que permitam averiguar níveis de contaminação destes mananciais é o propósito desta pesquisa. Células do epitélio branquial do guaru (Poecilia vivípara modificam o seu comportamento em face de variações ambientais, mantendo a homeostasia em condições adversas. Nosso propósito foi conhecer a origem e diferenciação dos tipos celulares no desenvolvimento das brânquias, procurando detectar variações do epitélio branquial em embriões de fêmeas prenhes expostas ao chumbo (poluente cumulativo e mutagênico. Formaram-se dois grupos, o controle e o experimental, que foi exposto à solução de acetato de chumbo a 1 ppm. Observaram-se os embriões nos estágios 24, 30 e 36 (Vernier, 1969, analisados sob microscopia de luz e eletrônica de varredura. Foram quantificados e mensurados os embriões por fêmea. Notou-se a formação dos arcos, filamentos, rastelo e lamelas branquiais. No epitélio, células do cloro se diferenciam primeiro, e no estágio 36 surgem as células mucosas no rastelo branquial. Não houve diferenças morfológicas de células epiteliais das br��nquias entre os grupos. A viviparidade pode ser o fato de explicaçãoLiving in society is a feature of Homo sapiens and this fact gives him the advantage of occupying many biomes. Population increase and technological development brought a growth in the volume of dejects thrown into water sources. Knowledge of biological models that evaluates contamination levels of these sources is the aim of this research. Cells of the branchial epithelium of Poecilia vivipara, popularly known as guaru, modify their behavior in the presence of environmental variations and keep the homeostasis in adverse conditions. Our intention was to know the origin and the differentiation of cell types in the development of the gill and to detect variations of the branchial epithelium in embryos of pregnant females exposed to lead (a cumulative and mutagenic chemical pollutant. Two groups were formed, the control and the experimental group, which was exposed to a solution of 1 ppm lead acetate. Embryos in stages 24, 30 and 36 were observed (Vernier, 1969 and analyzed under light and electronic scanning microscopy. Embryos of the females were quantified and measured. The formation of the arcs, filaments, rays and lamellae gill were registered. In the epithelium, first the chlorine cells differentiated; in stage 36 mucous cells appear in the branchial ray. There were no morphological differences between the groups in the epithelial cells of the gill. Viviparity may be the explanatory factor

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Goodeid topminnows are live-bearing fishes endemic to the Mexican Highlands (Mesa Central, MC. Unfortunately, in the MC, environmental degradation and introduced species have pushed several goodeid species to the brink of extinction. Invasive fishes can introduce exotic parasites, and the most abundant goodeid, blackfin goodea Goodea atripinnis Jordan, is parasitised by six exotic helminths. Poeciliids are widely dispersed invasive fishes, which exert negative ecological effects on goodeids. Poeciliids host several species of the monogenean genus Gyrodactylus von Nordmann, 1832, including pathogenic, invasive parasites. Here, we looked for evidence of Gyrodactylus species switching hosts from poeciliids to goodeids. Methods Fish were collected in rivers draining the MC into both sides of the continental divide. Hosts were screened for gyrodactylid parasites in localities where G. atripinnis and poeciliids occurred sympatrically. Gyrodactylus specimens were characterised morphologically (attachment apparatus and molecularly (internal transcribed spacer region, ITS. A Bayesian phylogenetic tree using ITS sequences established relationships between gyrodactylids collected from goodeid fishes and those from parasites infecting poeciliids. Results Gyrodactylids were collected from G. atripinnis in six localities on both sides of the watershed where exotic poeciliids occurred sympatrically. Morphological and molecular analyses indicated the presence of four undescribed species of Gyrodactylus infecting this goodeid host. Gyrodactylus tomahuac n. sp., the most abundant and geographically widespread species, is described here. The other three Gyrodactylus spp. are not described, but their ITS sequences are used as molecular data presented here, are the only available for gyrodactylids infecting goodeid fishes. Morphological and molecular data suggest that two distinct groups of gyrodactylids infect goodeids, one of which shares a common ancestor with gyrodactylids parasitizing poeciliids. Conclusions No evidence was found of gyrodactylids switching hosts from invasive poeciliids to endemic goodeids, nor vice versa. Moreover, considering that G. atripinnis is known to host both Gyrodactylus lamothei Mendoza-Palmero, Sereno-Uribe & Salgado-Maldonado, 2009 and Gyrodactylus mexicanus Mendoza-Palmero, Sereno-Uribe & Salgado-Maldonado, 2009, with the addition of G. tomahuac n. sp. and the three undescribed Gyrodactylus spp. reported, at least six gyrodactylids may infect this host. This would make monogeneans the second most abundant parasite group infecting G. atripinnis, which to date is known to harbour 22 helminth species: nine digeneans, five nematodes, four cestodes, three monogeneans and one acanthocephalan.

    Full Text Available O ensaio problematiza a transição histórica que ocorreu, a partir de meados dos anos 90 no Brasil, do Movimento do Direito Alternativo ao garantismo jurídico-penal, desde o marco da criminologia crítica. A hipótese é a de que a adesão ao garantismo representou uma resposta à crítica promovida contra o movimento. São utilizadas as experiências históricas de Magnaud, Kantorowicz e Neumann como recursos interpretativos para compreender as transições e os sentidos da crítica: crítica negativa aos fundamentos e aos pressupostos do positivismo dogmático; crítica positiva de construção de uma práxis jurídica emancipatória.

  15. Parasites of freshwater fishes and the Great American Biotic Interchange: a bridge too far?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Choudhury, A; García-Varela, M; Pérez-Ponce de León, G

    2017-03-01

    We examine the extent to which adult helminths of freshwater fishes have been part of the Great American Biotic Interchange (GABI), by integrating information in published studies and new data from Panama with fish biogeography and Earth history of Middle America. The review illustrates the following: (1) the helminth fauna south of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, and especially south of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, shows strong Neotropical affinities; (2) host-parasite associations follow principles of the 'biogeographic core fauna' in which host-lineage specificity is pronounced; (3) phylogenetic analysis of the widespread freshwater trematode family Allocreadiidae reveals a complex history of host-shifting and co-diversification involving mainly cyprinodontiforms and characids; (4) allocreadiids, monogeneans and spiruridan nematodes of Middle American cyprinodontiforms may provide clues to the evolutionary history of their hosts; and (5) phylogenetic analyses of cryptogonimid trematodes may reveal whether or how cichlids interacted with marine or brackish-water environments during their colonization history. The review shows that 'interchange' is limited and asymmetrical, but simple narratives of northward isthmian dispersal will likely prove inadequate to explain the historical biogeography of many host-parasite associations in tropical Middle America, particularly those involving poeciliids. Finally, our study highlights the urgent need for targeted survey work across Middle America, focused sampling in river drainages of Colombia and Venezuela, and deeper strategic sampling in other parts of South America, in order to develop and test robust hypotheses about fish-parasite associations in Middle America.

  16. Advances in Bayesian Model Based Clustering Using Particle Learning

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Merl, D M

    2009-11-19

    Recent work by Carvalho, Johannes, Lopes and Polson and Carvalho, Lopes, Polson and Taddy introduced a sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) alternative to traditional iterative Monte Carlo strategies (e.g. MCMC and EM) for Bayesian inference for a large class of dynamic models. The basis of SMC techniques involves representing the underlying inference problem as one of state space estimation, thus giving way to inference via particle filtering. The key insight of Carvalho et al was to construct the sequence of filtering distributions so as to make use of the posterior predictive distribution of the observable, a distribution usually only accessible in certain Bayesian settings. Access to this distribution allows a reversal of the usual propagate and resample steps characteristic of many SMC methods, thereby alleviating to a large extent many problems associated with particle degeneration. Furthermore, Carvalho et al point out that for many conjugate models the posterior distribution of the static variables can be parametrized in terms of [recursively defined] sufficient statistics of the previously observed data. For models where such sufficient statistics exist, particle learning as it is being called, is especially well suited for the analysis of streaming data do to the relative invariance of its algorithmic complexity with the number of data observations. Through a particle learning approach, a statistical model can be fit to data as the data is arriving, allowing at any instant during the observation process direct quantification of uncertainty surrounding underlying model parameters. Here we describe the use of a particle learning approach for fitting a standard Bayesian semiparametric mixture model as described in Carvalho, Lopes, Polson and Taddy. In Section 2 we briefly review the previously presented particle learning algorithm for the case of a Dirichlet process mixture of multivariate normals. In Section 3 we describe several novel extensions to the original

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

    In this paper we prove that gradient-like semigroups (in the sense of Carvalho and Langa (2009 J. Diff. Eqns 246 2646-68)) are gradient semigroups (possess a Lyapunov function). This is primarily done to provide conditions under which gradient semigroups, in a general metric space, are stable under perturbation exploiting the known fact (see Carvalho and Langa (2009 J. Diff. Eqns 246 2646-68)) that gradient-like semigroups are stable under perturbation. The results presented here were motivated by the work carried out in Conley (1978 Isolated Invariant Sets and the Morse Index (CBMS Regional Conference Series in Mathematics vol 38) (RI: American Mathematical Society Providence)) for groups in compact metric spaces (see also Rybakowski (1987 The Homotopy Index and Partial Differential Equations (Universitext) (Berlin: Springer)) for the Morse decomposition of an invariant set for a semigroup on a compact metric space).

    Species richness is distributed unevenly across the tree of life and this may be influenced by the evolution of novel phenotypes that promote diversification. Viviparity has originated ∼150 times in vertebrates and is considered to be an adaptation to highly variable environments. Likewise, possessing an annual life cycle is common in plants and insects, where it enables the colonization of seasonal environments, but rare in vertebrates. The extent to which these reproductive life-history traits have enhanced diversification and their relative importance in the process remains unknown. We show that convergent evolution of viviparity causes bursts of diversification in fish. We built a phylogenetic tree for Cyprinodontiformes, an order in which both annualism and viviparity have arisen, and reveal that while both traits have evolved multiple times, only viviparity played a major role in shaping the patterns of diversity. These results demonstrate that changes in reproductive life-history strategy can stimulate diversification.

    This paper provides the first report of the invasive Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934, in Honduras. The cestode was found in Profundulus portillorum (Cyprinodontiformes: Profundulidae), which represents a new host record, and which is a member of a genus faced with a variety of conservation challenges, now potentially complicated by the presence of this pathogenic cestode. Nearly complete sequence data from the ITS-1 5.8S and ITS-2 regions corroborate the determination based on morphological characteristics. Several species of carp were introduced to Honduras for aquaculture purposes in the early 1980s and the presence of the Asian fish tapeworm in Honduras may be related to these introductions. In addition, this report documents the currently known geographical distribution of this parasite in Central America, first recorded from Panamá and now from Honduras. © G.

    1998-09-01

    The dracunculoid nematode Mexiconema cichlasomae Moravec, Vidal et Salgado Maldonado, 1992, originally described from the abdominal cavity and viscera of Cichlasoma spp. from Mexico, was recorded from the abdominal cavity of the poeciliid Xiphophorus helleri Heckel in Lake Catemaco and its small tributary Arroyo Agrio, Veracruz and from the intestine of the nurse shark Ginglystoma cirratum (Bonnaterre) off the southern coast of the Gulf of Mexico in Campeche; both these findings represent new host records. The nematode specimens from these hosts are briefly described and illustrated. Whereas X. helleri evidently served as the true definitive host of this parasite, G. cirratum probably acquired Mexiconema infection accidentally while feeding on fish definitive hosts in the brackish or salt-water environment. The ability of M. cichlasomae to utilize fishes of different orders (Perciformes and Cyprinodontiformes) as definitive hosts is rather exceptional among dracunculoid nematodes.

Ela consistiu em sair às ruas de São Paulo, no meio de uma procissão de Corpus Christi, de chapéu na cabeça. Anos mais tarde, em Paris, um grupo de jovens pensadores e revolucionários de inspiração marxista participou de algumas atividades que lembram a experiência de Flávio de Carvalho. Uma delas era sair de casa e seguir a primeira pessoa que usasse determinado adereço, ou, uma peça de roupa de tal cor. Esse grupo francês, chamado de Situacionista, teve uma revista em que Guy Debord, um dos seus principais integrantes, escreveu, inclusive, a teoria desse tipo de atividade, a teoria da deriva.

Little is known about ZP or chorionic ultrastructure sustaining these life-history modes, so scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to describe this trait in a large number of aplocheiloids with a focus on the family Rivulidae and the genus Hypsolebias. New images of ZP ultrastructure for 52 aplocheiloid species are provided, more than doubling the number characterized thus far. The evolution of chorionic structure within this group is studied using these new data. Characters were coded into a morphological matrix and optimized onto a consensus phylogeny to assess phylogenetic signal and reconstruct ancestral character states. Although ZP characters seem highly homoplastic and exhibit a large amount of structural convergence among lineages, aplocheiloid killifishes have evolved a number of unique structures associated with the chorion. Some annual species seem to have lost long filaments because eggs are deposited in the soil instead of being adhered to aquatic plants. © 2017 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.

    Full Text Available In contemporary Brazilian literature there is a remarkable presence of Japanese topics, by writers without any biographical relationship to Japan – in our case Bernardo Carvalho, Adriana Lisboa, and João Paulo Cuenca. This phenomenon offers varied and complex readings, interpretations and representations of Japanese culture, which by this means is “integrated” into the Brazilian context; readings of Japan which still maintain a connection with the legacy of Japanese immigration to Brazil as well as with issues of Brazilian identity, but which deal primarily with universal signifiers of Japanese and Brazilian culture in the 21st century.

    Climate variability and change are projected to increate the frequency of extreme high-temperature events, floods, and droughts, which can lead to subsequent changes in soil moister in many locations (Alexandrov and Hoogenboom, 2000). In Brazil, observations reveal a tendency for increasing frequency of extreme rainfall events particularly in south Brazil (Alexander et al., 2006; Carvalho et al., 2014; Groissman et al., 2005), as well as projections for increasing extremes in both maximum and minimum temperatures and high spatial variability for rainfall under the IPCC SRES A2 and B2 scenarios (Marengo et al., 2009).

    Rodolfo Alves de Carvalho Neto

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with research about teaching quantum mechanics to 3rd year high school students and their meaningful learning of its predictive aspect; it is based on the Master’s dissertation of one of the authors (CARVALHO NETO, 2006. While teaching quantum mechanics, we emphasized its predictive and essentially probabilistic nature, based on Niels Bohr’s complementarity interpretation (BOHR, 1958. In this context, we have discussed the possibility of predicting measurement results in well-defined experimental contexts, even for individual events. Interviews with students reveal that they have used quantum mechanical ideas, suggesting their meaningful learning of the essentially probabilistic predictions of quantum mechanics.

    We present a comparative analysis of the Inelastic Overlap Functions predicted by three models for elastic scattering: Chou and Yang, Henzi and Valin and Martini and Menon. The results are also compared with two model independent extractions (Amaldi-Schubert and Carvalho-Menon). We then calculate the predictions for the corresponding integrated inelastic cross-sections from the three models and compare the results with the experimental data on pp and pp scattering available above 10 GeV. Similarities and differences between all modes predictions are presented and discussed. (author)

The species were collected with gill nets. After identification of the specimens, their relative abundance, weight and standard length were determined. Up to the present moment there are not any studies that focus this subject in this hydrographic basin. Fifty-three species, distributed in eighteen families and six orders were collected. Characiformes were represented by twenty-eight species, Siluriformes by seventeen species, the Gymnotiformes by three species, Perciformes and Cyprinodontiformes by two species, and the Synbranchiformes by one species. Among the collected species there were two exotic. The most abundant species were Astyanax fasciatus and Hypostomus ancistroides. In relation to total weight the most representative species were Hoplias malabaricus and Hypostomus ancistroides. Cyprinus carpio, Prochilodus lineatus, Schizodon nasutus and Hoplias malabaricus were the most representative species in relation to average weight.

  13. Science education through informal education

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kim, Mijung; Dopico, Eduardo

    2016-06-01

    To develop the pedagogic efficiency of informal education in science teaching, promoting a close cooperation between institutions is suggested by Monteiro, Janerine, de Carvalho, and Martins. In their article, they point out effective examples of how teachers and educators work together to develop programs and activities at informal education places such as science museums. Their study explored and discussed the viability and relevancy of school visits to museums and possibilities to enhance the connection between students' visits in informal contexts and their learning in schools. Given that students learn science by crossing the boundaries of formal and informal learning contexts, it is critical to examine ways of integrated and collaborative approach to develop scientific literacy to help students think, act and communicate as members of problem solving communities. In this forum, we suggest the importance of students' lifeworld contexts in informal learning places as continuum of Monteiro, Janerine, de Carvalho, and Martins' discussion on enhancing the effectiveness of informal learning places in science education.

  14. Full genome sequences are key to disclose RHDV2 emergence in the Macaronesian islands.

    A recent publication by Carvalho et al. in "Virus Genes" (June 2017) reported the presence of the new variant of rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV2) in the two larger islands of the archipelago of Madeira. Based on the capsid protein sequence, the authors suggested that the high sequence identity, along with the short time spanning between outbreaks, points to dissemination from Porto Santo to Madeira. By including information of the full RHDV2 genome of strains from Azores, Madeira, and the Canary Islands, we confirm the results obtained by Carvalho et al., but further show that several subtypes of RHDV2 circulate in these islands: non-recombinant RHDV2 in the Canary Islands, G1/RHDV2 in Azores, Porto Santo and Madeira, and NP/RHDV2 also in Madeira. Here we conclude that RHDV2 has been independently introduced in these archipelagos, and that in Madeira at least two independent introductions must have occurred. We provide additional information on the dynamics of RHDV2 in the Macaronesian archipelagos of Azores, Madeira, and the Canary Islands and highlight the importance of analyzing RHDV2 complete genome.

    2016-06-01

    Roussel De Carvalho uses the notion of superdiversity to draw attention to some of the pedagogical implications of teaching science in multicultural schools in cosmopolitan cities such as London. De Carvalho makes the case that if superdiverse classrooms exist then Science Initial Teacher Education has a role to play in helping future science teachers to become more knowledgeable and reflective about how to teach school students with a range of worldviews and religious beliefs. The aim of this paper is to take that proposition a step further by considering what the aims and content of a session in teacher education might be. The focus is on helping future teachers develop strategies to teach school students to think critically about the nature of science and what it means to have a scientific worldview. The paper draws on data gathered during an interview study with 28 students at five secondary schools in England. The data was analysed to discover students' perceptions of science and their perceptions of the way that science responds to big questions about being human. The findings are used to inform a set of three strategies that teachers could use to help young people progress in their understanding of the nature of science. These strategies together with the conceptual framework that underpins them are used to develop a perspective on what kinds of pedagogical content knowledge teacher education might usefully provide.

  1. Minimal knotted polygons in cubic lattices

    Van Rensburg, E J Janse; Rechnitzer, A

    2011-01-01

    In this paper we examine numerically the properties of minimal length knotted lattice polygons in the simple cubic, face-centered cubic, and body-centered cubic lattices by sieving minimal length polygons from a data stream of a Monte Carlo algorithm, implemented as described in Aragão de Carvalho and Caracciolo (1983 Phys. Rev. B 27 1635), Aragão de Carvalho et al (1983 Nucl. Phys. B 215 209) and Berg and Foester (1981 Phys. Lett. B 106 323). The entropy, mean writhe, and mean curvature of minimal length polygons are computed (in some cases exactly). While the minimal length and mean curvature are found to be lattice dependent, the mean writhe is found to be only weakly dependent on the lattice type. Comparison of our results to numerical results for the writhe obtained elsewhere (see Janse van Rensburg et al 1999 Contributed to Ideal Knots (Series on Knots and Everything vol 19) ed Stasiak, Katritch and Kauffman (Singapore: World Scientific), Portillo et al 2011 J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 44 275004) shows that the mean writhe is also insensitive to the length of a knotted polygon. Thus, while these results for the mean writhe and mean absolute writhe at minimal length are not universal, our results demonstrate that these values are quite close the those of long polygons regardless of the underlying lattice and length

    Helina Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 is the second genus of Muscidae in terms of richness. This genus includes several species collected at high altitudes and high latitudes, and is poorly studied in the Neotropical region. Only 12 species of Helina have been recorded in the southern limit of South America in the Andean-Patagonian forests. In the present work, we studied all the species known from the Andean-Patagonian forests, with the exception of H. viola Malloch, 1934, present three new species, H. araucana sp. nov., H. dorada sp. nov., and H. ouina sp. nov., and provide the first description of the females of H. australis Carvalho & Pont, 1993 and H. rufoapicata Malloch, 1934. We also propose four new synonymies: H. nigrimana basilaris (Carvalho & Pont, 1993) and H. nigrimana grisea (Malloch, 1934) as new junior synonyms of H. nigrimana (Macquart, 1851); and H. fulvocalyptrata Malloch, 1934 and H. simplex Malloch, 1934 as new junior synonyms of H. chilensis Malloch, 1934. Finally, we provide a generic diagnosis and a new key for the Helina species of the Andean-Patagonian forests, as well as notes on the biology and distribution maps of each specimen, and discuss a preliminary contruction of groups of species.

    Full Text Available The environmental question is of complex nature. It involves knowledge of diverse subjects and makes possible the accomplishment of studies under the optics of different specialties. The philosopher Heller apud Carvalho (2001 contents that the world-wide civilization is in crisis, understands that the solution of the most serious problems is urgent, lest social and political chaos or even human self-destruction will result.Environmental Law is a science that appeared at a historical moment designated by the crisis. This science has been appraised as being a set of principles, norms and rules that have the objective of protecting the environment, maintain the ecological balance, conserve cultural assets and contribute to harmonic development and social justice. For the application of this concept, administrative and legal measures are used beyond repairing the actual damages to the environment and ecosystems (CARVALHO, 2001.The law itself is one of the tools used by the Science of Environmental Law. To command the social and cultural life in an effective process of adjustment in the light of the evolution of society is, in ample direction, the dynamics of the law. It can be observed that it also expresses the necessity of living beings to share one determined space of time and place, without the need for foreign orders devoid of adaptations.

    The objective of this study was to estimate the survival of Gambusia holbrooki (Cyprinodontiformes: Poeciliidae) fishin domestic containers in Jeddah, as well as its effectiveness in the control of immature A.aegypti. The use of G. holbrooki compared to Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (B.t.i.)was donein domestic containers. In a first home visit, G. holbrooki or B.t.i were applied to water containers. Two follow-up visits were conducted after 3-4 & 5-6 months to assess the presence of viable fish in the containers and infestation by larvae. G. holbrooki fish were still present in 97.6% of containers 45-60 days after application. The infestation rate was significantly higher (P < 0.001) in the B.t.i group (IR ratio=21.60, 95% CI: 6.46-72.28). In deposits where the fish remained, efficacy was 85% better than B.t.i. The permanence of fish was higher in concrete tanks (48.5%) located outside the house (47.5%) and at ground level (53.3%).

  5. Patterns of Macroinvertebrate and Fish Diversity in Freshwater Sulphide Springs

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available Extreme environments are characterised by the presence of physicochemical stressors and provide unique study systems to address problems in evolutionary ecology research. Sulphide springs provide an example of extreme freshwater environments; because hydrogen sulphide’s adverse physiological effects induce mortality in metazoans even at micromolar concentrations. Sulphide springs occur worldwide, but while microbial communities in sulphide springs have received broad attention, little is known about macroinvertebrates and fish inhabiting these toxic environments. We reviewed qualitative occurrence records of sulphide spring faunas on a global scale and present a quantitative case study comparing diversity patterns in sulphidic and adjacent non-sulphidic habitats across replicated river drainages in Southern Mexico. While detailed studies in most regions of the world remain scarce, available data suggests that sulphide spring faunas are characterised by low species richness. Dipterans (among macroinvertebrates and cyprinodontiforms (among fishes appear to dominate the communities in these habitats. At least in fish, there is evidence for the presence of highly endemic species and populations exclusively inhabiting sulphide springs. We provide a detailed discussion of traits that might predispose certain taxonomic groups to colonize sulphide springs, how colonizers subsequently adapt to cope with sulphide toxicity, and how adaptation may be linked to speciation processes.

    The cDNAs of the α-subunit of the pituitary gonadotrophic hormones (GTHα) of fish of the order Osteoglossiformes or the superorder Osteoglossomorpha have never been sequenced. For a better understanding the phylogenetic diversity and evolution of PGHα in fish and for future biotechnological synthesis of the gonadotrophic hormones (ag-FSH and ag-LH), of Arapaima gigas, one of the largest freshwater fishes of the world, its GTHα cDNA was synthesized by reverse transcriptase and the polymerase chain reaction starting from total pituitary RNA. The ag-GTHα-subunit was found to be encoded by 348 bp, corresponding to a protein of 115 amino acids, with a putative signal peptide of 24 amino acids and a mature peptide of 91 amino acids. Ten cysteine residues, responsible for forming 5 disulfide linkages, 2 putative N-linked glycosylation sites and 3 proline residues, were found to be conserved on the basis of the known sequences of vertebrate gonadotrophic hormones. Phylogenetic analysis, based on the amino acid sequences of 38 GTHα-subunits, revealed the highest identity of A. gigas with members of the Acipenseriformes, Anguilliformes, Siluriformes and Cypriniformes (87.1-89.5 %) and the lowest with Gadiformes and Cyprinodontiformes (55.0 %). The obtained phylogenetic tree agrees with previous analysis of teleostei, since A. gigas, of the order of Osteoglossiformes, appears as the sister group of Clupeocephala, while Elopomorpha forms the most basal group of all other teleosts.

    Full Text Available This article concerns research paths in the field of Social Work. It begins with the polemic concerning the potential and ability of Social Work as a social practice to produce knowledge. It revives the debate concerning the "war of the sciences" between physicists and mathematicians with social analysts, in which the later do not recognize the scientific dimension of research in the social realm. It analyzes the growth of scientific production in Social Work through dissertations and theses in the Graduate Social Work Program. To do so it comments on the analyses of Iamamoto, Silva and Silva and Carvalho and indicates the need to establish a research policy, orient the epistemic community in Social Work and organize a network of researchers centers.

    Full Text Available Osteoderms are dermal bony plates situated over the epiderm andcovered by queratin layer. Until now are recognized at the Paleontological Site of Peirópolis three distinct crocodylomorph species, the Peirosauridae Peirosaurus termini Price, 1955 and Uberabasuchus terrificus Carvalho; Ribeiro & Ávilla, 2004 and the Trematochampsidae Itasuchus jesuinoi Price, 1955. The peirosaurids have nostrils frontally positioned within the skull and are regarded as terrestrial crocodylomorphs. The trematochampsids differentlyfrom the peirosaurids have the nostrils positioned at the dorsal portion of the skull, similar to the extant crocodiles with aquatic habits. The osteoderms morphological analysis of P. tormini, U. terrificus and I. jesuinoi corroborate, with the cranial evidences, for the terrestrial or aquatic lifestyle of these animals.

It is based on the theory of narratology, mainly on Gerard Genette's contributions. In order to consolidate the study on the nature of narratives, we propose that the texts be read based on the available scrutiny of the two pieces. Moreover, we intend to apprehend the meanings of image and time related to the television show, the process of adaptation, and the modern artistic movements that are found in the process of transmutation of the narrative from a support based on verbal code to a support based on audio-visual-verbal code.

An effective potential, combining non-bonding and polarization plus charge transfer (PLCT terms, was introduced to evaluate the magnitude of the interaction between each amino acid and the ligand. In this case study, the nonbonding–PLCT noncompensation characterizes the stabilization energy of the association process in study. The main residues (Gly29, Cys3 and Arg5 with net attractive effects and Arg1 (with a net repulsive effect, responsible by the stability of protein-ligand complex, are associated with large nonbonding energies non-compensated by PLCT effects. The results obtained enable us to conclude that the present decomposition scheme can be used for understanding the cohesive phenomena in proteins.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to study amateur films, made in a private context, as a powerful way of creating memory. To do so, we first present a theoretical analisys on the idea of “sites os memory” (Nora 1984 and also on the desire to protect memory, that calls to action the amateur filmmaker. At least, we analyze two Super-8 amateur films produced in Fortaleza (Brazil, in 1978, which were re-edited in the short movie Supermemorias (Danilo Carvalho, 2010. This analysis evidences to us the editing process as a way of constructing new sites of memory and also allow us to reafirm that the amateur film production can instigate interesting and relevant contemporary investigations.

    Full Text Available Abstract: This article offers an analysis of the film Lavour’Arcaica (Luís Fernando Carvalho, 2001, inspired by the homonym novel written by Raduan Nassar (1975, through the extraction of some elements that will enable us to see it as a representation of a hybrid religious imaginary amalgamated by the junction of Islam and Christianity - an inherent characteristic of the Syrian-Lebanese culture to which Nassar belonged. The article also discusses the problematics of the film adaptations, often seen as inferior and lower in stature or importance as their correspondent literary works, considering the specificity of each one instead off equivalence in all senses, purposes, and formats. Authors and their pieces about imaginary will be shown, whose diversity in their respective science fields will yield many ways to conceptualize it, transferring, therefore, a view upon both the literary work and the film, each one exposed here as departing from its own autonomous and particular character.

    Full Text Available Many rivers in Brazil as the São Francisco (SFR have been impounded for reservoirs construction purposes. However, there is a lack of knowledge on their fish fauna in many areas, including headwaters. The present study aimed to describe the fish community structure from Juramento reservoir, located on Juramento River, a branch of SFR basin. Six bimonthly samplings were made in four different sites. Gill and cast nets, beach seines and sieves were used to collect fish. Ecological indexes as well as the relationship between fish abundance and some limnological variables were determined. 3288 fish belonging to 33 species (16.5% of the total described for SFR basin were captured, being 75.7% Characiformes, 18.1% Siluriformes, 3% Cyprinodontiformes and 3% Gymnotiformes. Only two non-native species, 'tamboatá' - Hoplosternum littorale (Hancock, 1828 and 'trairão' - Hoplias lacerdae Ribeiro, 1908 were found. The highest catches in number occurred in the dry period (March-October and the lowest one in the wet season (November-February. Diversity was higher at Barragem station and richness did not vary between reservoir zones. Five migratory species were found downstream of the dam (four exclusively there, whereas only the 'curimbatá-pioa' - Prochilodus costatus Valenciennes, 1850 occurred in the reservoir. The low observed correlations between fish abundance and the limnological variables utilized suggest that the local fish fauna is not strongly affected by their variation.No Brasil, vários rios, como os da bacia do São Francisco (RSF, são barrados para a formação de reservatórios.

    In large samples, the γ-ray count rate of a prompt gamma neutron activation analysis system is a multi-variable function of the elemental dry composition, density, water content and thickness of the material. The experimental calibration curves require tremendous laboratory work, using a great number of standards with well-known compositions. Although a Monte Carlo simulation study does not avoid the experimental calibration work, it reduces the number of experimental calibration standards. This paper is part of a feasibility study for a PGNAA system for on-line continuous characterisation of cement raw material conveyed on a belt (Oliveira, C., Salgado, J. and Carvalho, F. G.

    FG. Araújo

    Full Text Available Cyprinodontiformes fishes (guppies are widely distributed in Neotropical regions and use deteriorated microhabitats in rivers where few species can occur. This study was carried out in a stretch of the Paraíba do Sul River in bracketing a large urban-industrial complex. The aim was to assess eventual effects that the industrial complex could have on distribution of two closely related fish species of guppies, Phalloceros caudimaculatus and Poecilia reticulata. The area was divided into three zones: Z1, 40 km upriver of the major urban-industrial complex of Volta Redonda; Z2, just down river of the complex; and Z3, 30 km down river of the complex. Six sites (two in each zone were sampled monthly between November 1998 and October 1999, using a standardized fishing effort with cast net throws, trays lifts and seine hauls, covering different microhabitats, that is, riffles, pools and the proximity of the river's margins. Poecilia reticulata was widely distributed, peaking at Z2, the most polluted area, while P. caudimaculatus showed the highest abundance at Z3, being almost absent in Z1. Both species occurred in high numbers throughout the year but they were scarce between April and June. Females outnumbered males for both species in most size classes and at all sites. Juveniles were more abundant than adults, with non-pregnant females outnumbering pregnant ones. Condition factor was always higher in males than females but only males P. reticulata showed significant difference among the three zones, with the highest values at Z2. The higher number of females confirms the expectation that these species can use very polluted areas and that availability of food provided by organic loads allowed their distribution all over the area. Although these two species have shown indication of spatial separation in the study area, their similar seasonal patterns of occurrence suggest that they respond in a similar way to changes in environmental conditions.

  14. Convergent evolution of alternative developmental trajectories associated with diapause in African and South American killifish.

    2015-03-07

    Annual killifish adapted to life in seasonally ephemeral water-bodies exhibit desiccation resistant eggs that can undergo diapause, a period of developmental arrest, enabling them to traverse the otherwise inhospitable dry season. Environmental cues that potentially indicate the season can govern whether eggs enter a stage of diapause mid-way through development or skip this diapause and instead undergo direct development. We report, based on construction of a supermatrix phylogenetic tree of the order Cyprinodontiformes and a battery of comparative analyses, that the ability to produce diapause eggs evolved independently at least six times within African and South American killifish. We then show in species representative of these lineages that embryos entering diapause display significant reduction in development of the cranial region and circulatory system relative to direct-developing embryos. This divergence along alternative developmental pathways begins mid-way through development, well before diapause is entered, during a period of purported maximum developmental constraint (the phylotypic period). Finally, we show that entering diapause is accompanied by a dramatic reduction in metabolic rate and concomitant increase in long-term embryo survival. Morphological divergence during the phylotypic period thus allows embryos undergoing diapause to conserve energy by shunting resources away from energetically costly organs thereby increasing survival chances in an environment that necessitates remaining dormant, buried in the soil and surrounded by an eggshell for much of the year. Our results indicate that adaptation to seasonal aquatic environments in annual killifish imposes strong selection during the embryo stage leading to marked diversification during this otherwise conserved period of vertebrate development. © 2015 The Author(s) Published by the Royal Society.

    2011-09-01

    Invertivores fishes are an important component of neotropical streams and they represent a link between aquatic invertebrates and piscivorous species. This study evaluated the breadth diet and interspecific food overlap of nine invertivores fish species during three consecutive hydrological phases: falling (December/07, January/08, February/08 and March/08), low (April/08) and rising waters (June/08), in two sections of a Venezuelan neotropical stream, which were located at different elevation, high watershed (HW) and low watershed (LW). The fishes were collected with a beach seine (5mm mesh) between 8:00 and 11:00 hours. The diet of each species was evaluated using an index of relative importance (IRI), which includes as variables the number, weight and occurrence frequency of food items consumed. The Levin' index (B ) and Morisita (IM) were used to estimate the breadth diet and interspecific food overlap, respectively. All estimations were made using the numeric proportion of preys. Nine fish species were captured, eight Characiformes, of which three were captured in HW (Knodus deuteronoides, Creagrutus bolivari and C. melasma) and five in LW (Thoracocharax stellatus, Moenkhausia lepidura, Cheirodon pulcher, Ctenobrycon spilurus and Aphyocharax alburnus), and one Cyprinodontiformes (Poecilia reticulata), which was also found in HW. In HW aquatic insects were the main resource consumed by fishes while plant material and terrestrial arthropods were secondary resources. In LW the fishes ingested all of these items in addition to zooplankton (Copepoda, Cladocera and larval stages of Decapoda). However, there was a temporal replacement with a predominance of zooplankton in falling and low water. In general, the breadth diet decreased during the falling water in both sections and increased in rising water. However, the average breadth diet was higher in HW. The interspecific food overlap was high in HW while low values were more frequent in LW and its temporal

    Present study attempts to identify the taxocoenosis and distribution of nektonic fauna harbouring the rice field ecosystems of Kashmir. The main objective of the study was to provide an overview of the nektonic community composition and physicochemical characteristics of flood waters. 6 sites were selected in Kupwara, Bandipora, Budgam, Srinagar, Pulwama and Anantnag districts of valley Kashmir. A total of 26 taxa belonging to 13 different orders were reported during the study which commenced through 2 consecutive crop cycles. The taxocoenosis was dominated by Coleoptera (10 taxa) followed by Hemiptera (3 taxa), Diptera (2 taxa), Diplostraca (2 taxa), Acarina, Anostraca, Anura, Amphipoda, Basommatophora, Cypriniformes, Cyprinodontiformes, Odonata and Pulmonata (1 taxa each). Diversity was calculated using Simpsons Index (D), Simpsons Index of Diversity (1-D), Simpsons Reciprocal Index (1/D), Shannon-Weiner Index (H'), Margalef Richness Index (d) and Evenness Index (e). Kupwara (34 degrees 02'N; 74 degrees 16'E) formed the most diverse site registering a total of 2384 individuals belonging to 24 taxa. A perusal of the primary data related to the physicochemical attributes of flood waters exhibited that average water temperature varied between 19-30 degrees C, average air temperature varied between 21 and 33 degrees C. pH depicted a variation between 6.0 and 9.0, Dissolved Oxygen varied between a minimum of 1.0 mg L(-1) and a maximum of 10 mg L(-1). Free CO2 ranged between 0 mg L(-1) and 6.1 mg(-1). The results pressed the need for recognizing and preserving rice fields as potential habitats for organisms that have successfully adapted to the highly manipulated and eutrophic conditions of rice paddies.

    1997-12-01

    Morphology, histology, and immunohistochemistry of the adrenocortical and adrenomedullary homologs (adrenal glands) of the following developing and adult teleosts were examined: Salmoniformes-Oncorhynchus mykiss (rainbow trout), Salmo trutta fario (brown trout), Coregonus lavaretus (white fish); Cyprinodontiformes-Gambusia affinis (mosquito fish). Perciformes-Dicentrarchus labrax (sea bass), Sparus aurata (sea bream), Diplodus sargus (white bream), Oblada melanura (saddled bream). The anatomical relationships of the gland with the renal system and venous vessels were also noted. In adults of all species steroidogenic and catecholaminergic chromaffin cells were found in the head kidney, which is pronephric in origin and subsequently transformed into a hematopoietic lymphatic organ. In Perciformes, chromaffin cells are distributed around the anterior and posterior cardinal veins and ducts of Cuvier; in Salmoniformes, around the posterior cardinal veins and in the hematopoietic tissue; and in G. affinis, around the ducts of Cuvier and posterior cardinal veins, while a few are visible also around the sinus venosus. In Perciformes and Salmoniformes, numerous chromaffin cells are also present in the posterior kidney, derived from the opisthonephros, in contact with the caudal vein. Steroidogenic cells are always confined to the head kidney. During development chromaffin and steroidogenic cells appear early after hatching in the pronephric kidney, at the level of the ducts of Cuvier and of the cephalic part of the posterior cardinal veins. Later, chromaffin cells in Perciformes reach the anterior cardinal veins, and subsequently, in both Perciformes and Salmoniformes, they reach the developing posterior kidney. Their localization along the posterior kidney is still in progress about 4 months after hatching and is completed about a year after hatching. These findings support the concept that the structure of the adrenal gland in teleosts is intermediate between that of the

    (Herichthys, Theraps, Vieja, and Paratheraps) and the genera Tomocichla, Herotilapia, and Thorichthys, together with three unnamed genera (the 'Heros' umbriferus group, the 'Heros' grammodes group, and the 'Heros' salvini group). Amphilophines are prevalent in southern Mesomerica south of the Motagua fault. Herichthyines have basal linages in Central America, whereas crown-group herichthyines and three related genera are found north from the Motagua fault. At least two independent origins are required to explain current Mesoamerican heroine distribution. Dispersal of heroines from South America into Mesoamerica was dated between 24 and 16 million years ago (MYA) based on geological calibrations and on standard fish mitochondrial cytochrome b rates, respectively. These datings cannot be reconciled with currently known geological evidence, and the existence of a connection between Central America and South America in the Miocene needs to be postulated in order to explain the origins of Mesoamerican heroine lineages. However, our datings agree with those estimated for the dispersal of other secondary freshwater fishes (Rivulidae, Synbranchus) into Mesoamerica, and predate the invasion of primary freshwater fishes by at least 10 myr.

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta uma reflexão sobre a vocalidade nas performances culturais tradicionais. A pesquisa começou a partir do trabalho de campo desde 1998 a 2003 na comunidade quilombola de Pombal (GO. O ponto de partida é o conceito de vocalidade formulado por Zumthor, que acrescenta à oralidade a dimensão "in-corporada" do vocal na produção histórico-social. O conceito de performance enquanto categoria analítica é transversal ao trabalho de campo, ao fazer local e ao resultado da pesquisa e devolução à comunidade com a realização de uma peça teatral. A clássica formulação de Austin habilita o estudo de aspectos fonemáticos e tímbricos como significados, no campo da "estética da opacidade" apontado por J. J. Carvalho. A vocalidade local será considerada no campo das vocalidades afro-brasileiras, na especial contingência do processo de reconhecimento de Pombal como "quilombo" pelo Estado, surgido no bojo do vínculo estabelecido com a comunidade ao longo da pesquisa.This article presents a reflection on the vocality in traditional cultural performances. The research begun with a fieldwork from 1998 to 2003 in the Maroons Community of Pombal, State of Goias, Brazil. The starting point is the concept of vocality as formulated by Zumthor, embracing orality and an "en-bodied" vocal dimension. The concept of performance as an analytical category, cuts across the fieldwork, the local making, and the result of this research with the accomplishment of a play as a retribution to the community. The classic formulation of Austin enables the study of phonematic and sound aspects as meanings, within an "Aesthetics of Opacity" as pointed by J. J. Carvalho. The local vocality will be considered in the field of Afro-Brazilian vocalities, in the special contingent process of the Brazilian State recognizing Pombal as a "Quilombo", arisen in the salience of the ties established with the community along the research.

  3. Portuguese Ornamental Stones - Identity and Cultural Heritage around the World

    Portugal has established itself as an independent state on October, 5th 1143 being confined to the south-eastern tip of Europe, with sealed land access to the rest of the continent by the others Iberian Peninsula kingdoms, enemies at the time who did not accept Portuguese autonomy. From the fourteenth century, the history of Portugal reports a period of epic discoveries. New commercial maritime routes have been established. Those routes sailing around Africa, passing through India, drove Portuguese people to Macao and Timor. To the East other routes reach the South American continent. Besides commercial interest, and because the church also financed these trips, they had the mission to evangelize the native peoples that were found. In every formed captaincies, over 29 actual countries, numerous churches, hospitals and fortifications were built. Combining a long tradition and mastery of monumental stone building and stonemasonry, which dates back to the Roman Period, Portuguese were able to combine the need to provide ships stability, using already worked stone as ballast. When arrived to these remote locations, quickly and with few local resources, could erect towering and admirable structures that still prevail today. Most of these regions were colonized and gave rise to independent countries in the 70's of the 20th Century, in some of them Portuguese is the official language and these constitutes the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP). This work shows that in addition to the language, traditions, customs, and architecture, there's also a very rich Portuguese Natural Stones monumental heritage building record, which constitutes a very strong link that binds this so special community.

Approximately 10%–20% of patients present metastatic disease at diagnosis and the 5-year overall survival remains around 70% for nonmetastatic patients and around 30% for metastatic patients. Metastatic disease at diagnosis and the necrosis grade induced by preoperative treatment are the only well-established prognostic factors for osteosarcoma. The DNA aberrant methylation is a frequent epigenetic alteration in humans and has been described as a molecular marker in different tumor types. This study evaluated the DNA aberrant methylation status of 18 genes in 34 OS samples without previous chemotherapy treatment and in four normal bone specimens and compared the methylation profile with clinicopathological characteristics of the patients. We were able to define a three-gene panel (AIM1, p14ARF, and ESR1 in which methylation was correlated with OS cases. The hypermethylation of p14ARF showed a significant association with the absence of metastases at diagnoses, while ESR1 hypermethylation was marginally associated with worse overall survival. This study demonstrated that aberrant promoter methylation is a common event

  8. The Sharpest Knives in the Drawer

    Full Text Available Cooking is a gender marker. Just as the best chefs in the world are traditionally men, post-hard-boiled literary detectives such as Vázquez Montalban’s Carvalho, or Robert B. Parker’s Spenser are gourmet cooks, while George Pelecanos’s sleuthing protagonists were as often as not brought up in short order Greek diners and know their way around a kitchen. Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins is quite capable of putting together a nutritious meal for his family, as is James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux. Sadly, in confirmation of the gender divide, the same cannot be said for women detectives. While Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski will reluctantly and with much griping put a simple meal on the table if absolutely forced to, Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone and Linda Barnes’s Carlotta Carlyle would not be seen dead slaving over a hot stove and subsist mainly on takeaway pizzas and hamburgers. Indeed, Kinsey Millhone would probably have died of malnutrition halfway through the alphabet if it were not for her neighbour, Henry, a retired baker, who regularly supplies her with decent home-cooked meals. Authors such as Vázquez Montalban and Robert B. Parker delight in providing recipes for their readers which are lovingly put together by their protagonists (especially in Spenser’s case whose culinary prowess is consistently contrasted to his girlfriend’s utter inability even to slice an onion, or by their male friends. In 1999 Vázquez Montalban published Las recetas de Carvalho which achieved such popularity it was reissued in 2004 by Planeta. It is not known whether any women detectives or their authors might claim as much. Clearly something is afoot. The sharpest knives in the detectives’ kitchen drawers are wielded by men, their traditional solitary nature ensuring the broth remains unspoiled and the villains well grilled. Overcompensation for gender stereotyping by both sides would seem an easy, half-baked explanation. Is it really that

    Local communities in some Asian, African and American countries, use plant toxins in fish poisoning for fishing activities; however, the effects of this practice on the particular wild fish assemblages is unknown. This study was conducted with the aim to investigate the effects of fish poisoning using Tephrosia candida, on freshwater fish diversity and abundance in streams at the boundary of the World Natural Heritage site, Sinharaja Forest Reserve, Sri Lanka. A total of seven field trips were undertaken on a bimonthly basis, from May 2013 to June 2014. We surveyed five streams with similar environmental and climatological conditions at the boundary of Sinharaja forest. We selected three streams with active fish poisoning practices as treatments, and two streams with no fish poisoning as controls. Physico-chemical parameters and flow rate of water in selected streams were also measured at bimonthly intervals. Fish were sampled by electrofishing and nets in three randomly selected confined locations (6 x 2 m stretch) along every stream. Fish species were identified, their abundances were recorded, and Shannon-Weiner diversity index was calculated for each stream. Streams were clustered based on the Bray-Curtis similarity matrix for fish composition and abundance. Physico-chemical parameters of water were not significantly different among streams (P > 0.05). A total of 15 fish species belonging to four different orders Cypriniformes, Cyprinodontiformes, Perciformes and Siluriformes were collected; nine species (60 %) were endemic, and six (40 %) were native species. From these, 13 fish species were recorded in streams with no poisoning, while five species were recorded in streams where poisoning was practiced. Four endemic and one native fish species were locally extinct in streams where fish poisoning was active. Fish abundance was significantly higher in control streams (32-39/m2) when compared to treatment streams (5-9/m2) (P fish poisoning with T. candida may

    The Pahrump poolfish (Empetrichthys latos) and White River springfish (Crenichthys baileyi) are small-bodied teleost fishes (order Cyprinodontiformes) endemic to the arid Great Basin and Mojave Desert regions of western North America. These taxa survive as small, isolated populations in remote streams and springs and evolved to tolerate extreme conditions of high temperature and low dissolved oxygen. Both species have experienced severe population declines over the last 50-60years that led to some subspecies being categorized with protected status under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Here we report the first sequencing of the complete mitochondrial DNA genomes for both E. l. latos and the moapae subspecies of C. baileyi. Complete mitogenomes of 16,546bp nucleotides were obtained from two E. l. latos individuals collected from introduced populations at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park and Shoshone Ponds Natural Area, Nevada, USA, while a single mitogenome of 16,537bp was sequenced for C. b. moapae. The mitogenomes of both species contain 13 protein-encoding genes, twenty-two tRNAs, and two rRNAs (12S and 18S) following the syntenic arrangement typical of Actinopterygiian fish mitogenomes, as well as D-loop control regions of 858bp for E. latos and 842bp for C. baileyi moapae. The two E. latos individuals exhibited only 0.0181% nucleotide sequence divergence across the entire mitogenome, implying little intraspecific mtDNA genetic variation. Comparative phylogenetic analysis of the poolfish and springfish mitochondrial genomes to available mitogenomes of other Cyprinodontoid fishes confirmed the close relationship of these oviparous Empetrichthys and Crenichthys genera to the viviparous goodeid fishes of central Mexico, and showed the combined clade of these fishes to be a sister group to the Profundulidae killifishes. Despite several significant life history and morphological differences between the Empetrichthyinae and Goodienae, estimates of evolutionary genetic

    The Santos estuary system is an intricate pattern of tidal channels and small rivers originating from the adjacent Pre-Cambrian slopes. These two major estuaries share a common area in the upper portion of the region which interacts with each other. The largest harbor in Latin America is located at the eastern outlet of the Santos estuary. This intricate and sensitive ecosystem is highly susceptible to human impact from industrial activities, urban sewage and polluted solid wastes disposal. Due to its high vulnerability CETESB (Environmental Control Agency of the Sao Paulo State) sporadically monitors the contamination levels of water, sediment and marine organisms in this region. The present study reports results concerning the distribution of some major, trace and rare earth elements in the Santos estuarine marine sediments. Thirty two bottom sediment samples (SS0601 to SS0616 (summer) and SW0601 to SW0616 (winter) were collected in this estuary, including regions of Sao Vicente, Santos, Cubatao and Vicente de Carvalho, by a vanVeen sampler in the summer and winter of 2006. Multielemental analysis was carried out by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA). The concentration values obtained for As and metals Cr and Zn in the sediment samples were compared to Canadian Council of Minister of the Environment (CCME) oriented values (TEL and PEL values) and are adopted by CETESB.

    Full Text Available Studies on cetaceans at Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil can be divided in three periods. During the first one (1861-1963, studies of the Argentines Burmeister, Gallardo, Lahille and Marelli were done on dolphin and porpoise osteology, occasionally on whales, these wire followed by those of Miranda Ribeiro and Carvalho in Brazil. The second period (1969-1976 begins with the studies of the North Américan Gilmore (1969 in Patagonia. From this year on, numerous forcing expeditions came to Argentina and Uruguay, to study the right whale, Eubalaena australis behavior in Patagonia and the La Plata river dolphin. Pontoporia blainvillei biology at Punta del Diablo, Uruguay. These expeditions have contributed to a better knowledge of whales and dolphins, not only in South if not also, abroad. During thin period studies on bekzvior, bioacustics, population dynamics and bio-ecological studies ; began. Simultaneously it is observed that Latin Americm researches, specially those of Uruguay and Brazil, become interested ind doing cetological research on systematic aspects. The third period (1976- it is characterized by an increased effort on this field and also by a better exchange of information between the three S. W. Atlantic countries. In Brazil, during the last two years, a gret interest on the minke whale conservation problem has developed, not only at the public opinion, but also at the government level.

The present study reports result concerning the distribution of some major, trace and rare earth elements in the Santos estuarine marine sediments. Thirteen bottom sediment samples (SV0501 to SV0513) were collected in this estuary, including regions of Sao Vicente, Santos, Cubatao, Vicente de Carvalho and Santos' Bay, in the summer of 2005. Multielemental analysis was carried out by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA). For total mercury determination cold vapor atomic absorption technique (CV AAS) was employed. In both cases methodology validation was performed by certified reference material analyses. The results obtained for multielemental concentrations in the sediment samples were compared with NASC (North American Shale Composite) values. The concentration values obtained for As and metals Cr, Hg and Zn in the sediment samples were compared to Canadian Council of Minister of the Environment (CCME) oriented values (TEL and PEL values). In general, the samples located near the Cubatao region showed higher concentrations for all elements analyzed probably due to the high impact of industrial activities. (author)

    Full Text Available This text deals with the relationship between religion, football and public space in Brazil. Specifically, it is about a certain aspect of the Brazilian religious field, i.e. the evangelical field, and particularly the Neo-Pentecostal one and its appearance and spread in sports, mainly football. By using data taken from doctoral research, it will be possible to demonstrate, without claiming to be exhaustive, that there is a spread of evangelicalism in football which is making this religious movement grow out of the status of a «peripheral or marginal religion for Brazilians» (Carvalho, 1999, p. 3, and turning it into a «dominant» religion almost as important as Catholicism, with regard to the world of football. Moreover, this text will try to show that, with reference to the group called Athletes of Christ, the interest in evangelicalism in the field of sports is not a recent phenomenon but it traces its origins to the heritage of Muscular Christianity, which dates back to the Victorian Age (1837-1901. Finally, this text aims to stimulate reflection on a fundamental contemporary theme, i.e. the phenomenon of religion in public space.

    Full Text Available Hydrographic basins in urban areas frequently undergo drastic landscape changes. This work analyzed the landscape transformation of Vidoca Stream Watershed in the period from 1500 to 2003. Based on Remote Sensing and GIS techniques it was found that: a Between 1500 and 1953 natural vegetation classes which included Alluvial Semi-decidual Seasonal Forest, Mountainous Semi-decidual Seasonal Forest and Open Arboreal Savannah changed to anthropic fields and grasslands; b From 1954 to 1985, just before the massive urban occupation of the area, there was a short period of regeneration of the Alluvial Semi-decidual Seasonal Forest above the Carvalho Pinto Highway; later on, the grasslands changed to anthropic fields; c From 1986 to 1997, a fast urbanization process occurred and resulted in the replacement of the grassland and anthropic fields by urban constructions; d From 1998 to 2003, with the consolidation of the urbanization process, the urban occupation reached the boundaries of the plateau and the lowlands of the watershed, resulting in soil impermeabilization. The results of this research indicated that the urbanization process was not controlled in spite of restricted legislation and environmental degradation occurred in this studied watershed along of the study period.

This condition often leads to metabolic syndrome, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. A large number of studies have been carried out to understand the pathogenesis of cardiovascular dysfunction in obese patients. Endothelial dysfunction plays a key role in the progression of atherosclerosis and the development of coronary artery disease, hypertension and congestive heart failure. Noninvasive methods in the field of cardiovascular imaging, such as measuring intima-media thickness, flow-mediated dilatation, tissue Doppler, and strain, and strain rate, constitute new tools for the early detection of cardiac and vascular dysfunction. These techniques will certainly enable a better evaluation of initial cardiovascular injury and allow the correct, timely management of obese patients. The present review summarizes the main aspects of cardiovascular dysfunction in obesity and discusses the application of recent noninvasive imaging methods for the early detection of cardiovascular alterations.Keywords: cardiovascular risk, endothelium dysfunction, obesity, strain and strain rate, tissue Doppler

  8. Dynamical computation of constrained flexible systems using a modal Udwadia-Kalaba formulation: Application to musical instruments.

    2017-02-01

    Most musical instruments consist of dynamical subsystems connected at a number of constraining points through which energy flows. For physical sound synthesis, one important difficulty deals with enforcing these coupling constraints. While standard techniques include the use of Lagrange multipliers or penalty methods, in this paper, a different approach is explored, the Udwadia-Kalaba (U-K) formulation, which is rooted on analytical dynamics but avoids the use of Lagrange multipliers. This general and elegant formulation has been nearly exclusively used for conceptual systems of discrete masses or articulated rigid bodies, namely, in robotics. However its natural extension to deal with continuous flexible systems is surprisingly absent from the literature. Here, such a modeling strategy is developed and the potential of combining the U-K equation for constrained systems with the modal description is shown, in particular, to simulate musical instruments. Objectives are twofold: (1) Develop the U-K equation for constrained flexible systems with subsystems modelled through unconstrained modes; and (2) apply this framework to compute string/body coupled dynamics. This example complements previous work [Debut, Antunes, Marques, and Carvalho, Appl. Acoust. 108, 3-18 (2016)] on guitar modeling using penalty methods. Simulations show that the proposed technique provides similar results with a significant improvement in computational efficiency.

    Since 1969 the experiments of Brazil-Japan Collaboration showed the occurrence of a series of events, showing a region with a high concentration of electromagnetic particles, surrounded by isolated and/or groups of showers. These events were named "halo events" or "super-families". Currently, we have more than a dozen of such events. The first of them, due to its aspect, was named "Andromeda". We present here the main characteristics of a similar halo event, named C21S087I075. It has a halo region with many high energy showers in its border. Other small energy showers spread over the central and surrounding blocks (S088, S100, S101, I074). These isolated showers, classified as of hadronic or electromagnetic origin, present a fractional energy distribution compatible with that of a Centauro candidate event (C16S087I037), reported at this symposium [S.L.C. Barroso, P.C. Beggio, J.A. Chinellato, A.O. Carvalho, A. Mariano, R. Oliveira, E.H. Shibuya, in this issue of XIV ISVHECRI]. Moreover, the lateral distribution in the halo region is similar to that observed in other 3 halo events.

    Full Text Available Chondrosarcoma originates in the bones of the head and neck. It is an unusual neoplasm that is slow-growing and represents only 1–3% of all cases of chondrosarcoma. Here, we report a case of a 45-year-old male Caucasian patient treated at Hospital Amaral Carvalho with a history of swelling of the face and a tumoral mass in the right maxilla with infiltration into the skin, which had been present for 4 months. A computerized tomography (CT of the face and sinuses demonstrated a lesion in the right maxilla. A maxilectomia without orbital exenteration was performed. It was diagnosed as a grade III chondrosarcoma, with infiltration into the subjacent bone, anterior wall of the maxillary sinus and floor of the orbit. The patient presented with recurrence of the tumor after adjuvant therapies. A molecular study on the present case showed an unusually large number of abnormalities. This finding demonstrated extreme chromosomal instability, which was likely due to the undifferentiation of the tumor. Although there are no cases in the literature with which to compare, these findings may elucidate potential therapeutic targets for advanced tumors without other therapeutic options.

    Full Text Available Este artigo procura entender a tentativa de retorno a representações da natureza na ficção brasileira do começo do século XXI, a partir dos romances Nove noites (2002 de Bernardo Carvalho, Órfãos do Eldorado (2008 de Milton Hatoum e Barba ensopada de sangue (2012 de Daniel Galera. Não sendo mais o sinal de uma necessidade de reivindicação de um patrimônio cultural nacional, como foi o seu papel durante séculos de historiografia literária e cultural, a natureza ressurge na ficção brasileira, de modo inédito, por outros sentidos – de revelação, destruição ou utopia –, excedendo e renovando sua imagem inicial, propagandística, de representação de uma nação. A consequência dessa passagem simbólica, e que mimetizaria o movimento da ficção brasileira atual, é a sua desapropriação como um bem orgulhosamente nacional e a sua integração no que poderíamos chamar de literatura mundial.

  14. Voltaire e um episódio da história de Portugal

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Oscar de Almeida Marques

    2004-12-01

    Full Text Available In his Précis du siècle de Louis XV Voltaire devotes two passages to events that took place in that century in Portugal: the devastation of Lisbon by the 1755 earthquake and the consequences of the Jesuits' alleged involvement, three years later, in the assassination attempt against King D. José I. Voltaire shows two tips of a story, but keeps hidden -or maybe even ignores -the continuous line that unites them and makes them, as I propose in the title, parts of a single episode.The missing link, of course, is the controversial Minister Sebastião José de Carvalho Melo, Count of Oeiras and Marquis of Pombal. Being a brilliant historian and, above all, a deep analyst of princes and rulers, it is a pity that Voltaire did not show much interest in a more detailed investigation of those political developments. By filling the gaps and correcting some faults of his report, I point to several elements that should have been taken more seriously by Voltaire and could have provided him some good clues as to the fate that awaited the French monarchy some 30 years later. .

The meningioma is the most common intracranial neoplasm in dogs and cats. Along the years, the Veterinary Medicine has experienced important technological improvements, making it possible the diagnosis of a lot of diseases. Therefore, diseases considered not common in the past, started being diagnosed more frequently, for instance, brain lesions. The objective of this research is to report a case of intracranial meningioma in a Boxer dog that arrived at the Veterinary Hospital of the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, highlighting its clinical improvement, diagnosis and treatment.

    Full Text Available José Crespo de Carvalho, Luís Sequeira Lisbon University Institute, Lisboa, Portugal Abstract: The main purpose of this study is to research buyer-seller conflict and cooperation in distribution channels. Based on a multidimensional case study, eight research hypotheses were formulated. Some quantitative research was conducted, based on a questionnaire sent to 101 port wine producers and distribution companies (61 answered properly – 31 producers and 29 distributors – which gave the authors a 60% rate of response, considered to be very good for these types of studies; those 101 port wine producers and distributors initially chosen were the most important in Europe, considering the volume of production and sales, and constituting, for that reason, a convenience sample. A binary probit model was developed to analyze the data. The results of the study demonstrate that when conflict is ongoing and intense it prevents the development of cooperative relationships. A trustworthy company is more likely to solve conflicts. When trust and adaptation capabilities increase, so does potential cooperation. The results also show that the presence of a foreign sales representative in the team does not exert a negative influence on cooperation. Finally, cooperation can be considered as an important means of developing skills and resources, which can then be applied to existing transaction relationships.

    Objective: The thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) is clinically relevant in approximately 50% of patients with Graves Disease (GD) and treatment options range from observation to endo nasal decompression of the optic nerve. Severe forms account for 3%-5% of patients. Methods: Between October, 1997 and October, 2002 a total of 27 consecutive patients presenting with TAO were treated with ocular radiotherapy (RT) at the Department of Radiation Oncology, of the Instituto do Cancer Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Results: The median age of patients was 45 years and median follow up of patients was 26 months. Median total dose to the isocenter was 20 Gy, given in 3 to 5 fractions per week. The crude local control was 81,5%. Five-year actuarial objective response rate was 67.6% for the entire group. On univariate analysis no predictive factor related to local control was found. Conclusion: TAO is a rare disease associated to GD that can be well controlled with a short course of RT. (author)

    Full Text Available The cultural and historical relationship of the pipe organ with the Church and sacred music brings about an undeniableaesthetical and stylistic archetype that still permeates the output for this instrument even in the twenty-first century. The purpose of this work is to elucidate the reasons that stimulate a contemporary Brazilian composer to write music for the organ. The methodology includes: (1 interviews with nine composers, (2 analysis of the collected data, (3 analysis of the musical style, and (4 aesthetical conceptions present in the works. The chosen pieces were composed between 1990-2005 and they are studied in more detail in the research project “Brazilian organ music: history, analysis, aesthetical appreciation and didactic evaluation” supervised by Any Raquel Carvalho. Partial results consider the fact that only three out of nine the composers are organists. Nevertheless, their works demonstrate knowledge of specific details of the instrument, an important factor for this genre. For the remaining composers, the organ does not represent the main focus of their musical output --most of them have composed only one work for this medium.

    Full Text Available Colocando em diálogo as pesquisas empíricas de Maria Isaura Pereira de Queiroz, Maria Sylvia de Carvalho Franco e Florestan Fernandes, realizadas nas décadas de 1950 e 1960 na Universidade de São Paulo, discutimos como esses três sociólogos trataram, mesmo que às vezes indiretamente, a questão da participação social, com o intuito de divisar o seu potencial teórico. Analisando as modalidades de participação do “homem comum” nas instâncias da vida política – nos processos eleitorais, nas relações com a burocracia do Estado, nos movimentos sociais, etc. –, Queiroz, Franco e Fernandes, de diferentes maneiras, situaram suas possibilidades e limites de acordo com as especificidades do processo mais geral de passagem do rural ao urbano no Brasil. Entendemos que a perspectiva histórica desses três autores, que mostram os efeitos de longa duração das raízes agrárias na conformação do mundo urbano, é fundamental para uma melhor compreensão dos dilemas de participação na sociedade brasileira contemporânea.

Este punto de vista permitió observar que proposiciones centrales de la sociología weberiana, como, por ejemplo, la formulación de los tipos ideales y del sentido de la ciencia, se recibieron con mucha parsimonia y se reelaboraron a medida que los textos del autor se fueron leyendo en contraste con otros autores. Inicialmente, se retoman textos de la revista Sociología; en seguida se discute la valorización de las proposiciones de Hans Freyer y Karl Mannheim en detrimento de las posiciones de Max Weber sobre el papel del sociólogo y, finalmente, se trata la controversia sobre los tipos ideales, liderada por Maria Sylvia de Carvalho Franco, que involucra los escritos de Florestan Fernandes y Fernando Henrique Cardoso.

Gentil, Pulido Valente, Reynaldo dos Santos, Egas Moniz, A. Flores, Sobral Cid, Lopo de Carvalho, Gama Pinto, etc). At the some period a true University Hospital (of Santa Marta) provided clinical investigation (cerebral angiography and leucotomy, aortography and arteriography of the limbs, angiopneumography, endarterectomy) and the creation of new specialties (neurosurgery, vascular surgery, pneumology). 2. A period of instability due to a deleterious political intervention (from 1947 to the present day) responsible for the destruction of the structure and concept of a new teaching hospital (Hospital de Santa Maria). As a result of the socio-political situation conflicting law and vicious rules lead to an excess of non-selected teachers and an alarming increase of students, patients and medical doctors. A change from the present situation and a new concept of clinical teaching must be imagined.

    This study describes the route followed by nursing in Brazil, through the foundation of nursing organizations and the emergence of nursing leaders and pioneers. To present the origins of modern nursing in Brazil, identifying the main nurse-leaders and analysing their performance for the creation and consolidation of the nursing organizations. It is a historical and social study with descriptive approach, to describe the process of Brazilian nursing professionalization and leadership through a literature review. The oldest nursing organization is the Brazilian Nursing Association that holds scientific and cultural activities. There are also nurses' unions and nursing specialty associations, such as the Brazilian Academy for the History of Nursing, and the Federal Nursing Council. The latter has compulsory membership for controlling nursing services according to the qualifications of the personnel. The very first school for nurses in the Nightingale system was created in São Paulo, 1894, at the Samaritan Hospital, and by the government in 1923, in Rio de Janeiro, for which American nurses, led by Ethel Parsons, sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, were essential for the creation of the Anna Nery Nursing School, still in operation within a federal university. Some nurses pioneered these works such as Edith Fraenkel, Maria Rosa Pinheiro, Amalia Carvalho and others. The work done by nursing leaders has brought to the profession a better status and made it more recognized by the society. © 2014 International Council of Nurses.

It has been included in the infraorder Notosuchia Gasparini, 1971. Three specimens of Mariliasuchus amarali, found near the municipality of Marília, São Paulo State were analysed. One of them, holotype of Mariliasuchus amarali (UFRJ DG 50-R, is a juvenile crocodylifom whereas the other two (UFRJ DG 105-R and UFRJ DG 106-R are adult animals. These fossils allowed an analysis of the ontogenetic development patterns of this species. It was performed a comparison betweeen the mandibular, laterotemporal and supratemporal fenestrae and the skull sculpturing in the three specimens. The results show that Mariliasuchus acquire in the course of its ontogeny a thicker and stronger skull. The caudal migration of the laterotemporal fenestra and the size increase of the supratemporal fenestra probably indicate a wider use or strength of the adductor muscles during seizing and food processing.

    Recent studies have shown that the methods for predicting secondary structures of RNAs on the basis of posterior decoding of the base-pairing probabilities has an advantage with respect to prediction accuracy over the conventionally utilized minimum free energy methods. However, there is room for improvement in the objective functions presented in previous studies, which are maximized in the posterior decoding with respect to the accuracy measures for secondary structures. We propose novel estimators which improve the accuracy of secondary structure prediction of RNAs. The proposed estimators maximize an objective function which is the weighted sum of the expected number of the true positives and that of the true negatives of the base pairs. The proposed estimators are also improved versions of the ones used in previous works, namely CONTRAfold for secondary structure prediction from a single RNA sequence and McCaskill-MEA for common secondary structure prediction from multiple alignments of RNA sequences. We clarify the relations between the proposed estimators and the estimators presented in previous works, and theoretically show that the previous estimators include additional unnecessary terms in the evaluation measures with respect to the accuracy. Furthermore, computational experiments confirm the theoretical analysis by indicating improvement in the empirical accuracy. The proposed estimators represent extensions of the centroid estimators proposed in Ding et al. and Carvalho and Lawrence, and are applicable to a wide variety of problems in bioinformatics.

    Full Text Available Apesar de ser considerado um potencial bioagente de controle do amendoim-bravo (Euphorbia heterophylla L. em cultivos de soja no Brasil, pouco se conhece sobre as características nutricionais do fungo Bipolaris euphorbiae Muchovej & Carvalho. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar diferentes fontes de carbono (glicose, amido, sacarose, lactose e maltose, de nitrogênio (nitrato de sódio, nitrato de amônio, sulfato de amônio, fosfato de amônio dibásico, cloreto de amônio, de fósforo (fosfato de potássio monobásico, fosfato de potássio bibásico, fosfato de cálcio, fosfato de sódio, ácido fosfórico, fosfato de amônio e a suplementação do meio de cultivo com fontes orgânicas de macro e micronutrientes, para o crescimento e a esporulação de B. euphorbiae. O amido proporcionou o maior crescimento, sendo também considerada a fonte de carbono mais favorável para a esporulação. O melhor crescimento e esporulação de B. euphorbiae foram obtidos usando o nitrato de sódio como fonte de nitrogênio e fosfato de potássio monobásico e fosfato de cálcio como fonte de fósforo, embora as demais fontes de fósforo analisadas, exceto o ácido fosfórico, tenham igualmente favorecido a esporulação. A suplementação do meio de cultivo com peptona e extrato de levedura resultou em melhor crescimento e esporulação do fungo e a adição de vitaminas favoreceu a produção de conídios.Bipolaris euphorbiae Muchovej & Carvalho is considered a potential bioagent for control of selvage peanuts (Euphorbia heterophylla L. on soybean crops in Brazil.

    Full Text Available A Campanha do Livro Didático e Manuais de Ensino (Caldeme, instituída por Anísio Teixeira quando este assumiu o Instituto Nacional de Estudos Pedagógicos (Inep, em 1952, buscou produzir livros didáticos e manuais para professores, entre outros materiais didáticos. Os manuais de História do Brasil e História Geral, para professores, foram encomendados a, respectivamente, Americo Jacobina Lacombe e Carlos Delgado de Carvalho, em 1953. Este artigo acompanha a produção desses manuais, apresentando, na medida do possível, os sujeitos nela envolvidos. Os conflitos e debates são expressos em um momento particular da história educacional e se articulam ao processo de mudanças também da produção historiográfica, podendo-se identificar as relações entre as diferentes esferas de produção didática. A escolha de professores universitários para a composição de obras didáticas situa as clivagens entre produções acadêmicas e as de caráter pedagógico. Nessa perspectiva situam-se as diferenças de projetos universitários perante o problema de formação de professores. Espera-se com isso elucidar aspectos de uma política pública educacional, de âmbito federal, até agora pouco investigada. Além disso, ao acompanhar as discussões suscitadas durante a elaboração desses manuais, procura examinar as concepções sobre história e ensino de história que então se confrontaram, assim como as aproximações e separações entre a produção acadêmica e a escolar.When he took up the direction of the National Institute for Pedagogical Studies (Instituto Nacional de Estudos Pedagógicos - INEP in 1952, Anísio Teixeira started the Schoolbook and Teaching Manual Campaign (Campanha do Livro Didático e Manuais de Ensino - CALDEME with the objective of producing schoolbooks and teaching manuals, among other didactic material.

    Full Text Available O texto levanta os perfis epistemológico e socianalítico da questão paradigmática. Mauss evidenciara o moule affectif das noções científicas de força e causa. Posteriormente Baudouin falaria na indução arquetípica das noções e a antropologia do imaginário de Durand concluiria pela indução arquetipal do conceito pela imagem. Chegava-se, assim, ao desvendamento do substrato inconsciente das ideações, de um substrato regido pela catexis vetorializada, traduzindo-se nos valores como cerne das ideações. É o famoso a priori emotivo. Portanto, no texto, questionam-se dois mitos, esteios da ciência clássica: o mito da objetividade científica e o da neutralidade axiológica. Destaca, assim, a falácia da existência de uma ruptura epistemológica entre ciência e ideologia. A partir daí, as ideações tornam-se ideologias, sobretudo nas ciências do homem e nas ciências da educação que, ademais, tornam-se suporte de uma disfarçada luta ideológica, na qual, num "colonialismo cognitivo", as estratégias de conhecimento dissimulam as de preconceito. Entretanto, assumir a realidade desse suporte fantasmanalítico e ideológico propicia uma tarefa educativa salutar: os paradigmas tornam-se fantasias e, nessa relativização crítica, podem ser usados como um campo de objetos transicionais coletivos num ludismo cultural e educativo. No policulturalismo da sociedade contemporânea, o "politeísmo de valores" de Weber transforma-se num "politeísmo epistemológico", regido pelo "relativismo ontológico" de Feyerabend e por uma ética do pragmatismo. Articulando cultura, organização e educação, a antropologia das organizações educativas e a culturanálise de grupos de Paula Carvalho traduzem as heurísticas dessa dialética transicional.The text draws the epistemological and socioanalytic profiles of the paradigmatic question.

Thus, we have used the studies by Ferraro (2011 and Carvalho and Rezende (2012, so that we can en compass the path of the quota student since basic education, highlighting the school trajectory of black boys. Then, we discuss how the positions regarding the quota system happen in the academic circles and how the affirmative action policy here discussed is related to the concept of equity, as proposed by López (2005. From the concept of equity, we conduct a brief history of the quota system introduction in Brazilian universities, emphasizing the isolated actions of some universities until the approval of the Law 12.711, which deals with the quotas national policy. Finally, we discuss the changes that occurred in the university students since the establishment of the quota system and the transformations occurred in the student assistance, not only in terms of resources but also regarding a proposal that no longer encompasses only economical help, it also includes pedagogical and social inclusion of the students in the Brazilian public university system. We highlight that the core purpose of this article is, based on bibliographic research, to establish the various hurdles faced by black and poor students on their path to higher education, and the need to adopt the quota system as a way of dealing with such obstacles.

Considerando-se a imprensa pedagógica de relevância para a História da Educação, elegeram-se para análise os artigos publicados nos periódicos pedagógicos desses dois países, no período de vigência do referido Movimento (1955 - 1985. Para fundamentação teórica, adotaram-se as ideias de Nóvoa (1993, Carvalho (2006, Viñao (2000 e Chartier (1991. As análises e comparações efetuadas permitem dizer que a matemática para o Ensino Primário deveria estar baseada na Teoria dos Conjuntos e na Lógica Matemática, com ênfase na linguagem simbólica e nos aspectos metodológicos com prescrição de materiais concretos para esse ensino. Os discursos veiculados nas revistas pedagógicas, em ambos os países, levaram aos professores primários informações sobre a “nova matemática”, priorizando um ensino fundamentado na teoria psicogenética de Jean Piaget. Assim, os periódicos pedagógicos analisados contribuíram para a difusão de concepções e apropriações de ideias sintonizadas com as propostas reformistas do ensino da Matemática.Abstract This article aims to present a study that analyzed the dynamic of the circulation and the appropriation of the Modern Mathematics Movement (MMM during the elementary School in Brazil and Portugal.

    The thermal conductivity of the rocks is a necessary physical parameter for the calculation of the flow of heat in the terrestrial surface. The conventional methods to measure the thermal conductivity are developed in laboratory having used sample of certifications. However, these nor always are disposable by the industry of the oil, either because of difficulty operational either for its high cost. However, all the constructed wells of oil are stood geophysically, and, in the majority of the times the geophysical profiles are the only petrophysics registers of the wells, mainly when the same ones are not testified. A viable alternative for sedimentary rocks would be to determine the thermal conductivity through the electric conductivity, being this normally gotten in electric profiles of wells. As the electric conductivity and the thermal conductivity they depend on the porosity and of the texture of the rocks and these mathematically equivalents satisfy equations constituent, are intuitive to think that the same largeness can directly be correlated. Applying the same analytical theoretical procedure considered by Lima and Sharma (1990 and 1992) to describe the electric conductivity of clay-sand, we develop an expression to determine the thermal conductivity of clay-sandstone rocks. To test the applicability of this equation they had been used given of electric profile of five explore wells of the regions of Aracas and Miranga, both of the basin of Reconcavo. The results of the conversions are comparable with the ones of effected measures of thermal conductivity with the method of the bar for Carvalho (1981) in the terrigenous sequences of the Reconcavo.

Esthetics evaluation was done in accordance with the criteria set by a plastic surgeon. Local control was evaluated by clinical method, mammography and ultrasonography. Overall survival (OS) and the disease-free survival (DFS) were assessed according to Kaplan-Meier methodology. All the patients were treated at the Dr. Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho Cancer Institute, from June/1995 to November/2001, and evaluated in March, 2002, with median follow-up of 28.7 months. Results: early complications were observed in 8 patients (30.6%). Two patients were classified as G3 and G4 (RTOG/EORTC). Six patients had late complications and three of them (11.5%) were classified as G3 and G4. One patient (3.8%) had local recurrence, 64 months after having local treatment. Esthetics results were considered good or regular in 16 patients (60.5%) out of 24 patients who were examined. Overall survival and disease-free survival in 24, 36 and 60 months were 100%, 92.3% and 83.1% respectively. Conclusion: early and late radiotherapy complications were considerate high when compared to literature, but esthetic results were considered acceptable. RL, OS and DFS were comparable to other

    Full Text Available Serena Goljevscek1, Livia A Carvalho21Psychiatric Clinic, University of Udine, Udine, Italy; 2Health Science Research Centre, Department of Life Sciences, Roehampton University, London, UKAbstract: Obsessional states show an average point prevalence of 1%–3% and a lifetime prevalence of 2%–2.5%. Most treatment-seeking patients with obsessions continue to experience significant symptoms after 2 years of prospective follow-up. A significant burden of impairment, distress, and comorbidity characterize the course of the illness, leading to an increased need for a better understanding of the nature and management of this condition. This review aims to give a representation of the current pharmacological and psychotherapeutic strategies used in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Antidepressants (clomipramine and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are generally the first-line choice used to handle obsessional states, showing good response rates and long-term positive outcomes. About 40% of patients fail to respond to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. So far, additional pharmacological treatment strategies have been shown to be effective, ie, administration of high doses of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, as well as combinations of different drugs, such as dopamine antagonists, are considered efficacious and well tolerated strategies in terms of symptom remission and side effects. Psychotherapy also plays an important role in the management of obsessive-compulsive disorder, being effective for a wide range of symptoms, and many studies have assessed its long-term efficacy, especially when added to appropriate pharmacotherapy. In this paper, we also give a description of the clinical and psychological features likely to characterize patients refractory to treatment for this illness, with the aim of highlighting the need for greater attention to more patient-oriented management of the disease.Keywords: obsessive

Conversely, the ZnS-based nanoconjugates proved to be noncytotoxic, considering all the parameters investigated. The results of in vitro cytotoxicity were remarkably dependent on the chemical composition of quantum dot (CdS or ZnS, the nature of the cell (human cancerous and embryonic types, and the concentration and time period of exposure to these nanomaterials, caused by the effects of Cd2+ on the complex nanotoxicity pathways involved in cellular uptake. Unexpectedly, no decisive evidence of nanotoxicity of CdS and ZnS conjugates was observed in vivo using intravenous injections in BALB/c mice for 30 days, with minor localized fluorescence detected in liver tissue specimens. Therefore, these results proved that CdS nanoconjugates could pose an excessive threat for clinical applications due to unpredicted and uncorrelated in vitro and in vivo responses caused by highly toxic cadmium ions at biointerfaces. On the contrary, ZnS nanoconjugates proved that the “safe by design” concept used in this research (ie, biocompatible core–shell nanostructures could benefit a plethora of applications in nanomedicine and oncology.

    Full Text Available A morte trágica do ator Domingos Montagner que interpretava o personagem Santo, um dos protagonistas da telenovela Velho Chico (Rede Globo – 2016, criada e escrita por Benedito Ruy Barbosa e dirigida por Luis Fernando Carvalho, a alguns capítulos do final da narrativa, não apenas chocou e colocou em luto o país inteiro como, também, impôs um problema muito grave e concreto à obra. Como manter o personagem que era vivido por Montagner na narrativa? A solução encontrada pela equipe de produção da novela surpreendeu positivamente espectadores e crítica. A câmera até então objetiva e neutra, que assumia um foco ideal através do qual o espectador assiste às cenas de fora, foi substituída por uma câmera subjetiva que assumiu um foco narrativo em primeira pessoa. O espectador foi então retirado do lugar clássico de observador externo, sendo convidado a assumir o foco narrativo do personagem. A técnica, apesar de não usual, não é uma novidade absoluta e já foi usada, por exemplo, em A dama do lago (1947, Viagem alucinante (2009, e no Brasil em: Eros, o deus do amor (1981 e Viajo porque preciso volto porque te amo (2009. A novidade está em realizar esta ousadia formal em uma narrativa popular, de grande audiência, e obter o engajamento imediato do público à técnica. Nesse sentido, propomos analisar este sucesso a partir da ideia de imersão advinda das narrativas em primeira pessoa dos videogames.

There is a higher incidence in male dogs, large, with an average age of eight years. The etiology is not well defined, but studies show a relationship with gastric infection by bacteria of the genus Helicobacter sp. The diagnosis is based on history, clinical signs such as vomiting, regurgitation and weight loss, ultrasound, endoscopy, histopathology and immunohistochemistry. The choice of therapy is surgery, performing the excision of the tumor with wide margins. Adjuvant chemotherapy does not work properly, except in cases of gastrointestinal lymphoma. The objective of this study was to report the occurrence of gastric cancer in a dog, male, tenyear-old German Shepherd that had as main complaint regurgitation and vomiting with evolution of a month. Surgery was performed and histopathological diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST. Subsequent immunohistochemical examination revealed fibrosarcoma. After surgical resection and adjuvant chemotherapy animal survival was eight months after diagnosis.

  18. The film adaptation as an intersemiotic translation procedure: the "Budapeste" case

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Based on the semiotic theories of American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce, this article analyzes Walter Carvalho and Rita Buzzar’s film adaptation of the novel Budapeste, by Chico Buarque (2003. According to Peirce, a sign is anything that can take the place of something else in any situation — in this sense, in a representation context. If the sign is a representation device, we use it to make translation processes, that is, we put a sign in place of another sign so that we are able to relate to reality through language. An important issue, from this theoretical point of view, is to question how film adaptations, translations of translations, are related to literary texts. For the reading that we propose, from a semiotic perspective, we shall apply the most famous Peircean classes of signs (icon, index and symbol, considering their functionality, but we shall mainly use the icon category, because of its property of representing based on similarity relations between signs and their objects. The hypothesis we are considering initially is that, in both narratives in issue (the literary and the film one, the mirror metaphor, or the duplication metaphor, can be self-referential ones, taking part in a labyrinthine game of digressions and interruptions in the plot, which is an attempt to deconstruct the verisimilitude and so is also an icon of the fictional subject. In order to explore the analytical potential of the Peircean categories, we shall discuss the film adaptation as an intersemiotic process, trying to find out which interpretation of the novel is in the filmmaker’s reading, following the clues of this translation process and considering the implications of Peirce typology to a theoretical-critical appreciation of the film.

  19. French Influence on Portuguese Architects in the Age of Enlightenment

    This investigation shows the European influence on the work of Portuguese architects of the Enlightenment period. Based on previous studies we focus our attention on the design of “Praça do Comércio” square and on a hypothesis, that it was based on the French Royal Square. We demonstrate that the design of Lisbon from the second half of the eighteenth-century was influenced by the theories and best practices of the time. We also confirm that the architect Eugénio dos Santos e Carvalho, a member of the reconstruction team for the Baixa, had in his personal library several reference books of French architectural practice that certainly influenced his architecture. The plans for the main square of Lisbon’s lower city, “Praça do Comércio”, can be compared to the “Place de Nos Conquêtes”, predecessor of the “Place Vêndome”, in its design, architecture and dimensions. This research analysed the cartography and iconography of Lisbon’s reconstruction. In particular, the drawings of “Praça do Comércio” and “Place de nos Conquêtes” were exhaustively studied. The comparative study of the elements for both squares lead to the conclusion that the Portuguese square presents many aspects of the French Age of Enlightenment, and in particular those featured in the “Place de nos Conquêtes”. This paper concludes that the Portuguese urban design and architectural projects of the 18th century are the result of previous knowledge where it was always possible to articulate the vernacular with academic design, and where many different influences left their mark on the culture of the period. The plans for the lower part of Lisbon display a mixture of references that relate to architectural and urban planning traditions of the Portuguese military engineering and contemporary French urban planning.

    Graphical abstract: Comparison of experimental results with correlation for solubility of CO 2 in triglycerides as a function pressure at two different temperatures of 289.15 and 303.15 K, respectively. - Highlights: • New pressure drop gas apparatus was developed to determine the solubility of gases in liquids. • Solubility of CO 2 in triglycerides was measured at different temperatures and pressures. • Experimental solubility data were correlated using three thermodynamic models. • Enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs energy of dissolution for CO 2 -triglyceride were determined. - Abstract: A new pressure drop solubility gas apparatus was developed to determine the solubility of carbon dioxide in canola oil, a triglyceride consisting primarily of oleic, linoleic, and alpha linoleic acid radicals. Solubility of CO 2 in triglycerides was determined at different temperatures (283.2–303.2 K) and pressures (600–2450 kPa). It was found that the solubility of CO 2 in triglycerides is higher than that of pure water because triglycerides lack strong hydrogen bond networks that exist in liquid water at the ambient conditions. The experimental solubility was correlated using Krichevsky–Kasarnovsky (KK), Mather-Jou (MJ), and Carvalho-Coutinho (CC) correlations. We find that KK and MJ equations can predict the solubility with higher accuracy. The enthalpy and entropy of absorption of CO 2 were calculated using the van’t Hoff plot and were found to be −7.165 kJ.mol −1 , and −28.791 J.mol −1 .K −1 , respectively.

Fluorescent probes are considered a valuable tool because of their ability to provide a particular view, and are more detailed and sensitive in terms of cell structure and molecular content. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the expression and distribution of glycoconjugates in normal human breast tissue, and benign (fibroadenoma, and malignantly transformed (invasive ductal carcinoma breast tissues. For this, we used mercaptosuccinic acid-coated Cadmium Telluride (CdTe quantum dots (QDs conjugated with concanavalin A (Con A or Ulex europaeus agglutinin I (UEA I lectins to detect α-D-glucose/mannose and L-fucose residues, respectively. The QD-lectin conjugates were evaluated by hemagglutination activity tests and carbohydrate inhibition assays, and were found to remain functional, keeping their fluorescent properties and carbohydrate recognition ability. Fluorescence images showed that different regions of breast tissue expressed particular types of carbohydrates. While the stroma was preferentially and intensely stained by QD-Con A, ductal cells were preferentially labeled by QD-UEA I. These results indicate that QD-lectin conjugates can be used as molecular probes and can help to elucidate the glycoconjugate profile in biological processes.

The results were compared with a previous census made in the state and with a similar study from Australia. Meliponiculture in Rio Grande do Norte is still informal and little standardized. The activity has grown in recent years considering the mean number of nests per beekeeper. Most apiaries are formed of up to 50 colonies, usually distributed in the backyards of homes. Twelve species of stingless bees were reared in the state, and the most common was the “Jandaíra” bee (Melipona subnitida, whose honey is considered medicinal. While many beekeepers already know the importance of bees as pollinators, stingless bees are still not used for crop pollination. Compared to a recent analysis of beekeeping in Australia, meliponiculture in Brazil is more traditional, honey is the main product and the number of colonies per beekeeper is much higher. Our results highlight the need to reinforce knowledge about bees and promote specific training aimed at improving and standardizing management practices.

    Full Text Available The history of Brazilian accounting has not been explored at length. Through a historical survey, this article presents the history of the Double-entry Bookkeeping Committee of 1914. After the Proclamation of the Republic was announced in 1889, the government started to expand its administrative bodies, necessitating the introduction of a bureaucracy able to perform new functions. In the same period, Brazil experienced a strong economic development with the development of its coffee industry. In 1905, under the leadership of Carlos de Carvalho, São Paulo State Treasury bookkeeping tasks were introduced under a double-entry bookkeeping system and through accrual and financial accounting. Double-entry bookkeeping practices in the federal public accounting system, although enshrined in law since 1808, were only fully realized after the creation of the Double-entry Bookkeeping Committee in 1914. In that same year, due to the negotiation of a second funding loan, English creditor bank auditors requested a balance of the National Treasury from the Minister of Finance Rivadávia Corrêa. Because the balance had not been prepared in eight years, the Double-entry Bookkeeping Committee was established in June of 1914, and this body completed a technical audit of Revenues and Expenditures. The committee also conducted the state administration's first Asset and Liability audit since the colonial era. The Double-entry Bookkeeping Committee of 1914 spearheaded changes to the Brazilian public accounting system, including the creation of the Public Accounting Code in 1922 and the approval of Central Accounting Office of the Republic regulation in 1924, strengthening and ascribing perpetuity to practices adopted after 1914.

Patients and method: this clinical prospective descriptive study was based on the evaluation of 26 patients ranging from 30 to 70 years old, with infiltrating ductal carcinoma, clinical stage IIB and IIIA, responsive to the neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Early and late radiotherapy complications were evaluated according to the criteria established by the RTOG/EORTC (Radiotherapy and Oncology Group /European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer) groups. Esthetics evaluation was done in accordance with the criteria set by a plastic surgeon. Local control was evaluated by clinical method, mammography and ultrasonography. Overall survival (OS) and the disease-free survival (DFS) were assessed according to Kaplan-Meier methodology. All the patients were treated at the Dr. Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho Cancer Institute, from June/1995 to November/2001, and evaluated in March, 2002, with median follow-up of 28.7 months. Results: early complications were observed in 8 patients (30.6%). Two patients were classified as G3 and G4 (RTOG/EORTC). Six patients had late complications and three of them (11.5%) were classified as G3 and G4. One patient (3.8%) had local recurrence, 64 months after having local treatment. Esthetics results were considered good or regular in 16 patients (60.5%) out of 24 patients who were examined. Overall survival and disease-free survival in 24, 36 and 60 months were 100%, 92.3% and 83.1% respectively.

    Some authors have speculated that the cognitive component (P3) of the Event-Related Potential (ERP) can function as a psychophysiological measure of sexual interest. The aim of this study was to determine if the P3 ERP component in a workload task can be used as a specific and objective measure of sexual motivation by comparing the neurophysiologic response to stimuli of motivational relevance with different levels of valence and arousal. A total of 30 healthy volunteers watched different films clips with erotic, horror, social-positive and social-negative content, while answering an auditory oddball paradigm. Erotic film clips resulted in larger interference when compared to both the social-positive and auditory alone conditions. Horror film clips resulted in the highest levels of interference with smaller P3 amplitudes than erotic and also than social-positive, social-negative and auditory alone condition. No gender differences were found. Both horror and erotic film clips significantly decreased heart rate (HR) when compared to both social-positive and social-negative films. The erotic film clips significantly increased the skin conductance level (SCL) compared to the social-negative films. The horror film clips significantly increased the SCL compared to both social-positive and social-negative films. Both the highly arousing erotic and non-erotic (horror) movies produced the largest decrease in the P3 amplitude, a decrease in the HR and an increase in the SCL. These data support the notion that this workload task is very sensitive to the attentional resources allocated to the film clip, although they do not act as a specific index of sexual interest. Therefore, the use of this methodology seems to be of questionable utility as a specific measure of sexual interest or as an objective measure of the severity of Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder. © 2011 Carvalho et al.

A neurocognitive profile characterized by widespread cognitive deficits across multiple domains in the context of substantial intellectual impairment, which appears to antedate illness onset, is a replicated finding in SZ. There is no specific neuropsychological signature that can facilitate the diagnostic differentiation of SZ and BD, notwithstanding, neuropsychological deficits appear more severe in SZ. The literature in this field has provided contradictory results due to methodological differences across studies. Meta-analytic techniques may offer an opportunity to synthesize findings and to control for potential sources of heterogeneity. Here, we performed a systematic review of meta-analyses of neuropsychological findings in SZ and BD. While there is no conclusive evidence for progressive cognitive deterioration in either SZ or BD, some findings point to more severe cognitive deficits in patients with early illness onset across both disorders. A compromised pattern of cognitive functioning in individuals at familiar and/or clinical risk to psychosis as well as in first-degree relatives of BD patients suggests that early neurodevelopmental factors may play a role in the emergence of cognitive deficits in both disorders. Premorbid intellectual impairment in SZ and at least in a

    Full Text Available Esse texto é o relato da pesquisa que empreendi quando realizava o curso de Mestrado em História Social na Universidade Estadual de Londrina. Iniciei a pesquisa estudando o romance Nove noites de Bernardo Carvalho, embrenhei-me pelo labirinto de suas vozes narrativas e envolvi-me na discussão a respeito de sua metaficcionalidade. Em seguida, analisei teses acadêmicas que focalizavam tais metaficções. Queria visualizar o discurso acadêmico acerca da literatura contemporânea, perceber se tais trabalhos poderiam ser classificados como metaficcionais. Ao ler as teses, porém, descobri António Lobo Antunes. Autor de vários romances, esse português começou sua produção literária com Memória de elefante, cuja trama se desenrola ao longo do dia de um psiquiatra que encontra na linguagem a possibilidade de transformar o mundo. Quando pensava finalmente ter encontrado minha fonte histórica, um episódio casual, o encontro com um livro, mudou a direção de minha pesquisa. Escrito pelo filósofo Peter Sloterdijk, A árvore mágica conta a história do magnetismo animal; é “uma tentativa épica com relação à filosofia da psicologia.” O presente texto, por ser um relato do percurso da pesquisa de fontes, termina no momento em que descobri esse romance e pude delimitar o assunto a ser tratado em meu texto dissertativo.

    Full text: Titanium dioxide (TiO{sub 2}) has been extensively studied for applications ranging from dye-solar cells, photo catalysis to sensors [1]. In the present study, TiO{sub 2} nanorod arrays were grown on tracing paper (90 g/cm{sup 2}) under microwave irradiation and without any seed layer. This simple and low temperature synthesis (80 deg C) route formed nanostructures on both sides of the paper, totally covering the flexible substrate. Closely packed nanorod arrays were formed appearing as aggregates with a cauliflower aspect. This nanorod aggregated structure increases the sensitivity due to the large surface area-to-volume ratio, which associated to high quality crystal structure, makes this material as a suitable UV/ozone sensor candidate with high on/off ratios between photo current and dark current. In order to measure the device photocurrent, conductive AFM measurements were carried out, using a 254 nm UV lamp. The dark current displayed 3 times less response than under UV exposure (bias voltage of 5 V). The current-voltage (IV) curves under the UV exposure or dark conditions were also assessed with the deposition of Al contacts and using a probe station. Moreover, the time resolved photocurrent of the devices in response to the UV turn on/off was investigated. Structural characterization of the devices was carried out by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), Xray diffraction (XRD), together with the investigation of their optical properties. Thus, in association to the recyclability, biocompatible and highly inexpensive characteristics of the substrate used, the approach developed in this study can be a competitive alternative for the UV/ozone sensors employed nowadays.

Several clinical trials have established both the beneficial effect of steroids in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and the well-known risk of side effects associated with their daily use. For many years it has been known that steroids associated with ambulation loss lead to obesity and also damage the bone structure resulting in the bone density reduction and increased incidence of bone fractures and fat embolism syndrome, an underdiagnosed complication after fractures. Fat embolism syndrome is characterized by consciousness disturbance, respiratory failure and skin rashes. The use of steroids in Duchenne muscular dystrophy may result in vertebral fractures, even without previous trauma. Approximately 25% of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy have a long bone fracture, and 1% to 22% of fractures have a chance to develop fat embolism syndrome. As the patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy have progressive cardiac and respiratory muscle dysfunction, the fat embolism may be unnoticed clinically and may result in increased risk of death and major complications. Different treatments and prevention measures of fat embolism have been proposed; however, so far, there is no efficient therapy. The prevention, early diagnosis and adequate symptomatic treatment are of paramount importance. The fat embolism syndrome should always be considered in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy presenting with fractures, or an unexplained and

    The present article is the analysis of a conversation between the author and Lara, a four-yearold- girl, enrolled in nursery school, while she makes a drawing of the Earth. It took place outside school environment and without any other person around to avoid interference during the interview. According to Ferreira & Silva (2004), a researcher can only comprehend a child's drawing, or form, by listening to him/her while he/she is creating it. Lara presented the traditional flat drawing, picturing the sky parallel to the ground, as reported by Nardi & Carvalho (1996). However, when asked to draw the World - term used by Butterworth et al. (2002), in order to avoid unnecessary confusion - she represented it by a circle, with herself on the surface. Her drawings led to the conclusion that such girl does not know yet the World in which she lives is the Earth, and probably because of that, within her age and consequent maturity, she accurately differentiates the concepts of land and Earth. El presente artículo analiza una entrevista libre, mientras una niña de 4 años y 4 meses, matriculada en el pregrado, dibuja la Tierra. Esta entrevista se realizó fuera del ambiente escolar y sin otra persona alrededor que pudiera interferir. De acuerdo con Ferreira Silva (2004), para quien investiga es posible conocer realmente lo que un niño o una niña pone en el papel a través de grafismos y/o dibujos si se lo escucha durante el proceso de creación de la escritura con imágenes. La niña, en este caso, representa la Tierra con el tradicional dibujo plano y el "cielo" paralelo al suelo, conforme analizaron Nardi & Carvalho (1996). Pero, cuando se Le solicita dibujar el "Mundo" - palabra empleada en un trabajo de Butterworth et al. (2002), con intención de no provocar "confusiones" innecesarias a sus sujetos de investigación- lo representa de forma circular, poniéndose sobre su superficie. Sus dibujos llevan a concluir que esta niña aún no tiene conocimiento que el mundo

    Full Text Available Anti-Jesuitism constitutes a phenomenon and a religious, cultural, socio-political movement at the international level. One of the most inexorable pursuers of the Company was Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, who unleashed a fierce anti-Jesuit campaign with international influences. After their fall, the surviving Jesuits, scattered throughout the various kingdoms, rehearsed a process of resistance to European anti-Jesuitism with writings. The purpose of this article is to examine one of these writings, "Relation of some causes that will succeed to the Religious of the Society of Jesus in the kingdom of Portugal, in their prisons, exiles and carceres, ... in the year 1759 athe year 1777, in the reign of King D. José I ... ", by Lourenço Kaulen, inserting it in the" process of resistance to anti-Jesuitism "(and its most violent expression, jesuóphophobia, as an attempt by the ex-Jesuits survivors of counterattacking the mythical imagery of the "Jesuit plot" and Jesuitism as being detrimental to society and the source of all kinds of evil. Kaulen inaugurates a new type of writing, the "apologetic-historical," model and paradigm for other filojenutic accounts and apologies. The rhetoric-apologetic style, with a strongly emotive-dramatic connotation, far from marginalizing critical intelligence and the sovereign discernment of the reader, will seek to recompose the dynamics of the mental scheme of feeling with the Exercises, leading it to the discernment of the just-unjust, loyal dishonest, coherent-incoherent. Discernment that will adhere to the emotional and will constitute the path par excellence of praxis and ethical action, that is, the need to repair the injustices done to the Jesuits. Through this dynamic, the author will stimulate the reader's discernible intelligence, encouraging him to stop being a mere passive and inoperative "listener", to be an agent of overcoming injustices and restoring justice, restoring the Company's honor and

  3. Decision trees and decision committee applied to star/galaxy separation problem

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vasconcellos, Eduardo Charles

    Vasconcellos et al [1] study the efficiency of 13 diferente decision tree algorithms applied to photometric data in the Sloan Digital Sky Digital Survey Data Release Seven (SDSS-DR7) to perform star/galaxy separation. Each algorithm is defined by a set fo parameters which, when varied, produce diferente final classifications trees. In that work we extensively explore the parameter space of each algorithm, using the set of 884,126 SDSS objects with spectroscopic data as the training set. We find that Functional Tree algorithm (FT) yields the best results by the mean completeness function (galaxy true positive rate) in two magnitude intervals:14=19 (82.1%). We compare FT classification to the SDSS parametric, 2DPHOT and Ball et al (2006) classifications. At the faintest magnitudes (r > 19), our classifier is the only one that maintains high completeness (>80%) while simultaneously achieving low contamination ( 2.5%). We also examine the SDSS parametric classifier (psfMag - modelMag) to see if the dividing line between stars and galaxies can be adjusted to improve the classifier. We find that currently stars in close pairs are often misclassified as galaxies, and suggest a new cut to improve the classifier. Finally, we apply our FT classifier to separate stars from galaxies in the full set of 69,545,326 SDSS photometric objects in the magnitude range 14 train six FT classifiers with random selected objects from the same 884,126 SDSS-DR7 objects with spectroscopic data that we use before. Both, the decision commitee and our previous single FT classifier will be applied to the new ojects from SDSS data releses eight, nine and ten. Finally we will compare peformances of both methods in this new data set. [1] Vasconcellos, E. C.; de Carvalho, R. R.; Gal, R. R.; LaBarbera, F. L.; Capelato, H.

Objetivo: Verificar a associação entre a presença de perineorrafia e problemas perineais, atividades habituais e necessidades fisiológicas afetadas em  puérperas no pós-parto vaginal. Materiais e Métodos: Estudo transversal, composto por 870 puérperas com algum tipo de trauma perineal durante o parto vaginal. Os dados foram coletados através da entrevista estruturada e exame físico da região vulvoperineal e submetidos a análise descritiva e inferencial. Resultados: Houve associação estatisticamente significativa entre a episiorrafia e a ocorrência de edema (p<0,001, ardor (p=0,002 e dor (p=0,002. Concernente às atividades habituais e necessidades fisiológicas, mulheres com episiorrafia apresentaram maior dificuldade para vestir-se, deambular, sentar e dormir. Em contrapartida, apresentaram menor dificuldade para urinar e realizar higiene íntima. Discussão: Dentre os problemas perineais, observou-se diferença estatisticamente significativa quanto a ocorrência de edema, ardor e dor entre os grupos, sendo que as mulheres com episiorrafia relataram menos ardor perineal em comparação ao grupo com perineorrafia devido a laceração espontânea. Nesse sentido, preservar a integridade perineal das parturientes é algo necessário e possível na assistência obstétrica, visto que esse tipo de intervenção, por vezes desnecessária, desencadeará desconfortos que irão interferir no seu bem-estar durante o período puerperal. Conclusões: Os dados deste estudo permitiram verificar que há associação entre a perineorrafia e a ocorrência de problemas perineais e alterações para realização de atividades habituais no puerpério imediato.

    Full Text Available El estadio de la investigación sobre Responsabilidad Social Empresarial (RSE puede encontrarse en una etapa de madurez pero no necesariamente es así con las respuestas de los consumidores frente a sus iniciativas. Los resultados de los estudios que prueban la relación entre ambas son controversiales. Por un lado, algunos indican que existe una relación positiva entre las acciones de RSE y la reacción de los consumidores para con dicha empresa y sus productos (Ellen, Webb, & Mohr, 2006; Carvalho, Sen, Mota, & Carneiro, 2010; por el otro, algunas investigaciones afirman que esta relación no siempre es directa y evidente, dejando a numerosos factores  la tarea de explicar los efectos de las actividades de RSE de la empresa en las intenciones de compra de los consumidores (Carrigan & Attalla, 2001; Maignan & Ferrell, 2004. Parece existir entonces una controversia entre qué es lo relevante y qué no lo es, a la hora de explicar por qué los consumidores compran productos con atributos de RSE (Devinney, Auger, Eckhardt, & Birtchnell, 2006; Arredondo, Maldonado, & De la Garza, 2010.

We evaluated short- and long-term fractal exponents of heart rate variability (HRV in COPD subjects.Patients and methods: We analyzed data from 30 volunteers, who were divided into two groups according to spirometric values: COPD (n = 15 and control (n = 15. For analysis of HRV indices, HRV was recorded beat by beat with the volunteers in the supine position for 30 minutes. We analyzed the linear indices in the time (SDNN [standard deviation of normal to normal] and RMSSD [root-mean square of differences] and frequency domains (low frequency [LF], high frequency [HF], and LF/HF, and the short- and long-term fractal exponents were obtained by detrended fluctuation analysis. We considered P < 0.05 to be a significant difference.Results: COPD patients presented reduced levels of all linear exponents and decreased short-term fractal exponent (alpha-1: 0.899 ± 0.18 versus 1.025 ± 0.09, P = 0.026. There was no significant difference between COPD and control groups in alpha-2 and alpha-1

    Classroom teachers and university professors from two continents joined to learn about “Rocks, Rain, and Climate” in the GIFT (Geophysical Information For Teachers) Workshop at the Meeting of the Americas, held in Foz de Iguaçu (Iguassu Falls), Brazil, 8 - 9 August 2010. GIFT workshops have long been part of the AGU Fall Meetings, but among “the pioneers” from this program were the first GIFT in South America and the first GIFT presented in Portuguese and English. Its success will provide a model for future teacher-professor-researcher professional development in Brazil. The two-day course opened with overviews of the “Geology and Relief of South America” from C.D.R. Carneiro and the “Weather and Climate in South America” from Michelle R. Reboita (Federal University of Itajubá/UNIFEI). M.J. Passow organized a discussion about the “Challenges to Teaching about Climate Change,” followed by an exchange among the participants about their teaching experiences. The first day ended with a presentation by Antonio Carlos Alves Carvalho (Ministry of Education) about governmental initiatives to enhance distance learning and educational technology across the country to provide greater access to quality resources for all students and teachers. On the second day, Rachel Albrecht (Center for Weather Forecasting and Climate Studies of the National Space Research Institute/CPTEC-INPE) described her research using Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)satellite precipitation data. M.J. Passow explained additional classroom applications of satellite data for studying precipitation and other patterns in the Tropics. C.D.R. Carneiro then discussed current research into “Weathering, Rocks, and the Carbon Cycle.” In the final session, Maria Assunção Faus da Silva Dias (University of São Paulo/USP)explained creation and educational uses of mathematical models to study the evolution of climate, especially as it relates to the hydrologic cycle.

Objective: We compared the effects of three programs, strength training (ST, aerobic training (AT, and physiotherapy, on motor symptoms, functional capacity, and electroencephalographic (EEG activity in PD patients. Methods: Twenty-two patients were recruited and randomized into three groups: AT (70% of maximum heart rate, ST (80% of one repetition maximum, and physiotherapy (in groups. Subjects participated in their respective interventions twice a week for 12 weeks. The assessments included measures of disease symptoms (Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale [UPDRS], functional capacity (Senior Fitness Test, and EEG before and after 12 weeks of intervention. Results: The PD motor symptoms (UPDRS-III in the group of patients who performed ST and AT improved by 27.5% (effect size [ES]=1.25, confidence interval [CI]=-0.11, 2.25 and 35% (ES=1.34, CI=-0.16, 2.58, respectively, in contrast to the physiotherapy group, which showed a 2.9% improvement (ES=0.07, CI=-0.85, 0.99.

However, these effects are controversial in humans. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of microencapsulated CLA supplementation on body composition, body mass index, waist circumference, and blood pressure in sedentary women with metabolic syndrome.Methods: This study was a placebo-controlled and randomized clinical trial. Fourteen women diagnosed with metabolic syndrome received light strawberry jam enriched or not with microencapsulated CLA (3 g/day as a mixture of 38.57% cis-9, trans-11, and 39.76% trans-10, cis-12 CLA isomers associated with a hypocaloric diet for 90 days. The subjects were monitored to assess variables associated with the metabolic syndrome, in addition to assessing adherence with the intervention.Results: There were no significant effects of microencapsulated CLA on the lipid profile or blood pressure. Mean plasma insulin concentrations were significantly lower in women supplemented with microencapsulated CLA (Δ T90 – T0 = −12.87 ± 4.26 µU/mL, P = 0.02. Microencapsulated CLA supplementation did not alter the waist circumference, but there was a reduction in body fat mass detected after 30 days (Δ = −2.68% ± 0.82%, P = 0.02, which was maintained until the 90-day intervention period (Δ = −3.32% ± 1.41%, P = 0.02 in the microencapsulated CLA group. The placebo group showed this effect only after 90 days (Δ = −1.97% ± 0.60%, P = 0.02, but had a reduced waist circumference (Δ T90 – T0 = −4.25 ± 1.31 cm, P = 0.03.Conclusion: Supplementation with mixed

Applications of lean practices to health care are found worldwide. Despite that, new contributions are required because the application of lean thinking to hospitals has a long way to go. Lean practices and thinking do not include, in the literature or practice programs, any references to triage systems in health care units. The common triage systems require physical presence, but there are alternative methods to avoid the need to move patients: these alternative triage systems, given their characteristics, may be included in the spectrum of lean practices. Currently, patients that are already known to suffer from cancer are encouraged to go to hospital (public or private, with an oncological focus when facing side effects from chemotherapy or radiation treatments; they are then submitted to a triage system (present themselves to the hospital for examination. The authors of this paper propose the introduction of telephone or email triage for impaired patients as a valid substitute for moving them physically, thereby often avoiding several unnecessary moves. This approach has, in fact, characteristics similar to a lean practice in that it reduces costs and maintains, if done properly, the overall service offered. The proposed 'remote' triage emerged from the results of a large survey sent to patients and also as the outcome of a set of semistructured interviews conducted with hospital nurses. With the results they obtained, the authors felt comfortable proposing this approach both to public and private hospitals, because the study was conducted in the most important, largest, and best-known oncological unit in Spain. As a final result, the health care unit studied is now taking

In this context, the purpose of the present study was to analyze the influence of spirituality in childhood cancer care, involving biopsychosocial aspects of the child, the family, and the health care team facing the disease. To accomplish this purpose, a nonsystematic review of literature of articles on national and international electronic databases (Scientific Electronic Library Online [SciELO], PubMed, and Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature [LILACS] was conducted using the search terms “spirituality,” “child psychology,” “child,” and “cancer,” as well as on other available resources. After the search, 20 articles met the eligibility criteria and were included in the final sample. Our review showed that the relation between spirituality and health has lately become a subject of growing interest among researchers, as a positive influence of spirituality in the people's welfare was noted. Studies that were retrieved using the mentioned search strategy in electronic databases, independently assessed by the authors according to the systematic review, showed that spirituality emerges as a driving force that helps pediatric patients and their families in coping with cancer.

Pautando-se num referencial teórico de autores e autoras que abordavam a referida temática, a exemplo de: Louro (1997, Bourdieu (1999, Silva (1999, Carvalho (2000, Vianna (1997, dentre outros, optou-se pela realização de um estudo centrado em uma abordagem qualitativa, utilizando como instrumento de coleta de dados um questionário aplicado para o corpo técnico da citada escola. De posse desses dados fez-se análises à luz do referencial teórico proposto, e, constatou-se a partir das afirmações das pedagogas participantes da pesquisa que elas têm conhecimentos prévios sobre como as relações de gênero se materializam na sociedade e, que, em suas praticas cotidianas tentam desenvolver atividades de forma não sistematizadas com alunos e alunas. Todavia, também ficou evidenciado a partir dos resultados da pesquisa da necessidade de se realizar um trabalho mais efetivo sobre o encaminhamento dos PCN’s que trata do Tema Transversal Orientação Sexual, a fim de que ele seja visto não só como um ponto de partida para se estabelecer momento de reflexão, análise e debate sobre as questões emergentes centradas no gênero, sexo, raça/etnia, religião, entre outras, mas também, como mecanismo de estudos e pesquisas acerca da origem dos preconceitos sexistas de gênero que dão origem a uma série de conflitos nos diferentes espaços sociais, sobretudo, na escola.

Armani, e, sob coorientação da mestranda do Programa de Pós-graduação em História – UFSM Jóice Anne A. Carvalho. Busca-se traçar uma linha teórica referente à constituição da Nação e o papel do indivíduo mergulhado na coletividade, ou seja, quem compõe e quem não compõe a estrutura social do Brasil na construção do eu nacional. Ao longo do século XIX e início do século XX, pensadores de várias áreas das ciências começaram a se questionar sobre as diferenças dos seres humanos e que, mais tarde, desembocariam num discurso hierárquico de raças. Essas menções à suposta inferioridade da raça brasileira fez com que Alberto Torres, assumisse uma posição contrária a esse discurso, expondo-a no livro “O Problema Nacional Brasileiro” (1914. Sua teoria sobre as raças afirmava que a única questão que podia vir a contribuir para certa diferenciação racial seriam os fatores mesológicos de uma Nação, mais precisamente, o clima. Nesta mesma linha de pensamento, o autor Monteiro Lobato também analisa a composição da população brasileira e a discussão acerca da hierarquização racial tão em voga no período. Em seu livro “Problema Vital” (1918, nega a afirmação de inferioridade da raça brasileira e aponta as medidas que o Estado deveria tomar para que a população conseguisse atingir o progresso. Lobato também acaba resgatando a figura do caboclo, numa clara tendência de traçar um perfil para o brasileiro

The “Cuestionario para la Evaluación de la Adhesión al Tratamiento Antiretroviral” (CEAT-VIH was used to evaluate factors related to adherence and the EP and, complementarily, patient self-perception of adherence was compared to the clinical parameter of the EP. Results: Seventy-five patients were interviewed, 60 of whom were considered as adherent from the clinical parameter of the EP and ten were considered as adherent from all parameters. Patient self-perception about adherence was the instrument that best reflected the EP when compared to the standardized self-report questionnaire (SMAQ and drug refill parameter. The level of education and the level of knowledge on HAART were positively correlated to the EP. Forgetfulness, alcohol use, and lack of knowledge about the medications were the factors most frequently reported as a cause of nonadherence.

Patients and methods: In this retrospective analysis, mRCC patients in two institutions in Latin America received sunitinib at a starting dose of either 50 mg/day for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks off treatment (Schedule 4/2 in repeated 6-week cycles or sunitinib 37.5 mg on a continuous daily dosing schedule. Clinical characteristics, tolerability, and PFS data were collected. Results: Twenty-nine patients with long-term clinical benefit from sunitinib were identified between September 2005 and August 2009. Median PFS was 23 months (range: 15–54 months. Two of the 29 patients with prolonged PFS achieved a complete response and additional eleven had a partial response. Most patients were aged <60 years, had good performance status, favorable or intermediate Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center prognostic risk, and disease limited to one or two sites. Dose reduction was necessary in all patients who started sunitinib at 50 mg/day administered on Schedule 4/2. Adverse events leading to dose reduction included grade 3 hand–foot syndrome, mucositis, fatigue, and hypertension. At the time of data cutoff, four patients were still receiving sunitinib treatment. Conclusion: Extended PFS can be achieved in Latin American patients with mRCC treated with sunitinib. Although the small sample size and retrospective nature of this evaluation preclude the identification of pretreatment predictive factors contributing to this benefit, the current analysis warrants

    Purpose: advances in technology and the commercial production of Leipzig applicators allowed High Dose Rate after-load brachytherapy (HDR-BT) to address a number of the challenges associated with the delivery of superficial radiation to treat localized non melanoma skin cancer (NMSK). We reviewed our uni-institutional experience on the treatment of NMSK with HDR-BT. Methods: data were collected retrospectively from patients attending the Radiation Oncology Department at AV Carvalho Insitute, Sao Paulo, Brazil. HDR-BT was done using the stepping source HDR 192Ir Microselectron (Nucletron BV). The planning target volume consisted of the macroscopic lesion plus a 5mm to 10mm margin.The depth of treatment was 0.5 cm in smaller (< 2.0 cm) tumors and 10 to 15 mm for lesions bigger than that. Results: Thirteen patients were treated with HDR-BT from June, 2007 to June 2013. The median age and follow up time were 72 (38-90) years old and 36 (range, 7-73) months, respectively. There a predominance of males (61.5%) and of patients referred for adjuvant treatment due positive surgical margins or because they have had only a excision biopsy without safety margins (61.5%). Six (46.2%) patients presented with squamous cell carcinoma and 7 (53.8%) patients presented with basal cell carcinoma. The median tumor size was 20 (range, 5-42) mm. Patients were treated with a median total dose of 40 Gy (range, 20 -60), given in 10 (range, 2-15) fractions, given daily or twice a week. All patients responded very well to treatment and only one patient has failed locally so far, after 38 months of the end of the irradiation. The crude and actuarial 3-year local control rates were 100% and 80%, respectively. Moist desquamation, grade 2 RTOG, was observed in 4 (30.8%) patients.

    Natural uranium (U) occurs as a mixture of three radioactive isotopes: 238U, 235U, and 234U. Only 235U is fissionable and makes up about 0.7% of natural U, while 238U is overwhelmingly the most abundant at greater than 99% of the total mass of U. Prior to the 1940s, U was predominantly used as a coloring agent, and U-bearing ores were mined mainly for their radium (Ra) and/or vanadium (V) content; the bulk of the U was discarded with the tailings (Finch et al., 1972). Once nuclear fission was discovered, the economic importance of U increased greatly. The mining and milling of U-bearing ores is the first step in the nuclear fuel cycle, and the contact of residual waste with natural water is a potential source of contamination of U and associated elements to the environment. Uranium is mined by three basic methods: surface (open pit), underground, and solution mining (in situ leaching or in situ recovery), depending on the deposit grade, size, location, geology and economic considerations (Abdelouas, 2006). Solid wastes at U mill tailings (UMT) sites can include both standard tailings (i.e., leached ore rock residues) and solids generated on site by waste treatment processes. The latter can include sludge or “mud” from neutralization of acidic mine/mill effluents, containing Fe and a range of coprecipitated constituents, or barium sulfate precipitates that selectively remove Ra (e.g., Carvalho et al., 2007). In this chapter, we review the hydrometallurgical processes by which U is extracted from ore, the biogeochemical processes that can affect the fate and transport of U and associated elements in the environment, and possible remediation strategies for site closure and aquifer restoration.This paper represents the fourth in a series of review papers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) on geochemical aspects of UMT management that span more than three decades. The first paper (Landa, 1980) in this series is a primer on the nature of tailings and radionuclide

Con tal fin, probamos la hipótesis nula de un ci - clo común, como es definida en los modelos estructurales como el empleado por Carvalho, Harvey y Trimbur (2007, contra la hipótesis de un ciclo similar entre ambas economías. La existencia de un ciclo económico común entre dos economías implica que uno de ellos es proporcional al otro (Harvey 2002. Los resultados muestran que antes de la entrada en vigor del TLCAN (1960:1-1994:4 ninguna de las dos economías posee un ciclo econó - mico común. Al contrario, a partir de la firma del TLCAN (1995:1-2012:4, no es posible rechazar la hipótesis de la existencia de un ciclo económico común entre ambas economías, lo cual interpretamos como una mayor sincronización de sus productos. Observamos, sin embargo que, con respecto al periodo previo, la sincronización cíclica ocurre en un periodo de lento crecimiento donde los flujos comerciales del TLCAN con Estados Unidos decli - nan relativamente desde el año 2000.

    Dentre os subprodutos derivados do processamento do suco de laranja concentrado, o chamado “licor” de laranja, produto da extração final dos resíduos industriais da fruta, em função da grande quantidade de sólidos solúveis que contém, tem sido concentrado e reincorporado ao resíduo seco da polpa utilizada na elaboração da ração cítrica. Considerando-se portanto o grande volume de produção, e principalmente a economia que poderia representar o uso do “licor” de laranja como matéria-prima de uma nova bebida destilada, foi objetivo deste trabalho obter, com base no processo de obtenção da cachaça, uma aguardente, com características físicas químicas e sensoriais compatíveis com esse tipo de bebida. Nesse sentido, foram obtidas em laboratório amostras de aguardentes, de cana e de “licor’ de laranja, a partir das respectivas matérias primas, utilizando-se um processo de dupla destilação dos vinhos e o envelhecimento dos respectivos destilados em ancorotes de carvalho, com vistas a realizar um estudo comparativo entre as duas bebidas. A metodologia otimizada para a obtenção da aguardente de “licor” de laranja envelhecida, resultou um produto que, do ponto de vista sensorial, revelou-se comparável à cachaça. Estudos complementares relacionados aos aspectos econômicos e toxicológicos do produto, deverão complementar os requisitos necessários para se propor comercialmente a nova bebida desenvolvida. PALAVRAS-CHAVE: Aguardente de cana; aguardente de “licor” de laranja; dupla destilação; envelhecimento; análise sensorial.

    Purpose: advances in technology and the commercial production of Leipzig applicators allowed High Dose Rate after-load brachytherapy (HDR-BT) to address a number of the challenges associated with the delivery of superficial radiation to treat localized non melanoma skin cancer (NMSK). We reviewed our uni-institutional experience on the treatment of NMSK with HDR-BT. Methods: data were collected retrospectively from patients attending the Radiation Oncology Department at AV Carvalho Insitute, Sao Paulo, Brazil. HDR-BT was done using the stepping source HDR 192Ir Microselectron (Nucletron BV). The planning target volume consisted of the macroscopic lesion plus a 5mm to 10mm margin.The depth of treatment was 0.5 cm in smaller (< 2.0 cm) tumors and 10 to 15 mm for lesions bigger than that. Results: Thirteen patients were treated with HDR-BT from June, 2007 to June 2013. The median age and follow up time were 72 (38-90) years old and 36 (range, 7-73) months, respectively. There a predominance of males (61.5%) and of patients referred for adjuvant treatment due positive surgical margins or because they have had only a excision biopsy without safety margins (61.5%). Six (46.2%) patients presented with squamous cell carcinoma and 7 (53.8%) patients presented with basal cell carcinoma. The median tumor size was 20 (range, 5-42) mm. Patients were treated with a median total dose of 40 Gy (range, 20 -60), given in 10 (range, 2-15) fractions, given daily or twice a week. All patients responded very well to treatment and only one patient has failed locally so far, after 38 months of the end of the irradiation. The crude and actuarial 3-year local control rates were 100% and 80%, respectively. Moist desquamation, grade 2 RTOG, was observed in 4 (30.8%) patients. Severe late complication, radiation-induced dyspigmentation, occurred in 2 patients and 1 of the patients also showed telangiectasia in the irradiated area. The cosmetic result was considered good in 84% (11/13) patients

    Full Text Available Este artigo aborda a construção do conhecimento segundo a perspectiva de duas ciências: a Psicologia do desenvolvimento e a Ciência da Informação. A abordagem da Psicologia privilegia os estudos dos construtivistas, especialmente Jean Piaget e Vygotsky, que analisaram como se desenvolve o raciocínio lógico desde os primeiros anos da criança até a maturidade alcançada ao final da adolescência. A abordagem da Ciência da Informação privilegiou os estudos relacionados à Gestão do Conhecimento, principalmente a ótica de Nonaka e Kono sobre as transformações do conhecimento tácito em explícito e vice-versa, em um processo de construção de conhecimento que passa pelo indivíduo, por grupos e organizações. Para ilustrar esse processo, especialmente nas crianças, integra o artigo uma pesquisa desenvolvida por Carvalho (2011, que procurou identificar a influência da propaganda sobre a construção do conhecimento das crianças na faixa de 5 a 9 anos, período em que está se estruturando o estágio de desenvolvimento denominado operatório-concreto. Os resultados apontaram que a mídia influencia significativamente as crianças e é responsável pelo conhecimento que elas adquirem da realidade, levando-as a preferirem comprar a brincar, preferirem ir a shoppings a parques e a identificar produtos de tecnologia avançada e a desejá-los como presentes. Como conclusão, o artigo realça a importância dos meios de comunicação para a construção do conhecimento e alerta para a necessidade de se adotarem situações que despertem a criança para a formulação de respostas que exijam raciocínio superior, além de chamar a atenção para a necessidade de uma ética na veiculação da informação que se destina a crianças e adolescentes.

More than 2 million adolescents between the age group of 10 and 19 years are living with HIV, and millions are at risk of infection. HIV risks are considerably higher among girls, especially in high-prevalence settings such as eastern and southern Africa. In addition to girls, there are other vulnerable adolescent subgroups, such as teenagers, who use intravenous (IV drugs, gay and bisexual boys, transgender youth, male sex workers, and people who fall into more than one of these categories. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP is a new intervention for people at high risk for acquiring HIV, with an estimated HIV incidence of >3%. Recent data from trials show evidence of the efficacy of PrEP as a powerful HIV prevention tool in high-risk populations, including men who have sex with men, HIV-1-serodiscordant heterosexual couples, and IV drug users. The reported efficacy in those trials of the daily use of oral tenofovir, alone or in combination with emtricitabine, to prevent HIV infection ranged from 44% to 75% and was heavily dependent on adherence. Despite the proven efficacy of PrEP in adult trials, concerns remain about its feasibility in real-life scenarios due to stigma, cost, and limited clinician experience with PrEP delivery. Recent studies are attempting to expand the inquiry into the efficacy of such HIV prophylaxis approaches in adolescent populations, but there are still many gaps in knowledge, and no

    Introduction: The Lower Mekong Delta, one of the largest agricultural areas in Southeast Asia, has been reported to be increasingly polluted by agrochemicals since the beginning of the transformation processes in Vietnamese economy and specifically in the agricultural sector in 1986 (MRCS, 2007; Dasgupta et al., 2005; Dung, 2003; Phuong, 2003). Although pesticides have contributed significantly to enhancing agricultural productivity, these agrochemicals also have created risks to human health and environment (Margni, 2001; Phuong, 2003; Dasgupta et al., 2005) and lead to value loss of water resources (Phuong, 2003). While prohibited persistent organic pollutants such as HCHs and DDTs, were monitored and still detected in the Lower Mekong Delta in recent studies (Minh et al., 2007, Carvalho et al., 2008) little data exist on water pollution by recently used pesticides in the Delta. Aiming to fill this information gap, a study comprising three components was set up at two study sites of the Delta. Pesticide use and management was investigated through surveys and participatory rural appraisals with farmers; pesticide residue concentrations were determined in field outflows, connected irrigation canals and in drinking water and finally pesticide fate was predicted by using a coupled MIKE 11/ MIKE SHE model. This abstract focuses on the work done in the field of pesticide monitoring. The western study site (An Long Commune, Dong Thap province) represented an agricultural pattern with two intensive paddy rice crops per year and was heavily affected by flood in the rainy season. The second site located in the central part of the Delta (Ba Lang ward, Can Tho City) was characterized by a mix of paddy rice, vegetables and fruit trees. Fifteen pesticide compounds (buprofezin, butachlor, cypermethrin, difenozonazol, α-endosulfan, β-endosulfan, endosulfan-sulfate, fenobucarb, fipronil, hexaconazol, isoprothiolane, pretilachlor, profenofos, propanil, and propiconazol) were

As aguardentes estudadas compreenderam seis amostras comerciais de diferentes marcas, (sendo três não envelhecidas e três envelhecidas e ainda outras cinco amostras correspondentes a zero, 12, 24, 36 e 48 meses de envelhecimento em um tonel de carvalho de 200L. As amostras foram avaliadas por 100 provadores consumidores do produto, recrutados por questionário de avaliação quanto à afetividade. Para os testes afetivos foi utilizada escala hedônica não estruturada de 9cm, sendo os dados obtidos avaliados por dois métodos estatísticos distintos: o Mapa de Preferência Interno (MDPREF e a análise de variância univariada (ANOVA com comparação de médias pelo teste de Tukey e análise de correlação. As amostras de aguardente envelhecidas por 12, 36 e 48 meses obtiveram maior aceitação, com médias ao redor de 7,0 na escala hedônica. A amostra com menor aceitação foi a correspondente ao tempo zero de envelhecimento (controle. As demais amostras obtiveram aceitação intermediária. A análise por MDPREF gerou em espaço multidimensional (onde as variações com relação aos dados de preferência foram extraídas em eixos ortogonais e para cada dimensão de preferência, coordenadas relativas aos produtos, que foram geradas em função da resposta dos consumidores. Os dados de aceitação de cada provador foram utilizados para o desenvolvimento de vetores individuais de preferência, resultando na construção de um mapa mutidimensional das amostras, em função dos dados de aceitação. No presente estudo o MDPREF foi gerado pelas primeira e segunda dimensões de preferência, as quais explicaram em conjunto 89,83% das variações observadas entre as amostras com relação à aceitação.

O método tradicional de maturação de bebidas é sua interação com madeiras, sendo que a irradiação pode acelerar este processo de envelhecimento. A cachaça e os tonéis de carvalho de 20 L de capacidade foram submetidos à irradiação gama (150 Gy. Análises físico-químicas e cromatográficas foram realizadas periodicamente ao longo de 390 dias do período de envelhecimento da bebida. A irradiação da cachaça e do tonel não alterou a maioria dos componentes voláteis do coeficiente de congêneres como acidez volátil, ésteres, álcoois superiores e furfural durante os 390 dias. Há evidências, entretanto, de que os parâmetros de alguns componentes como aldeídos, taninos, cor e teor de cobre são de alguma forma influenciados, resultando em aceleração parcial do processo de maturação ou envelhecimento. Ao final do período de envelhecimento, foi feita uma análise sensorial com 30 provadores não treinados. A aceleração do processo de envelhecimento foi confirmada pela avaliação sensorial, e a cachaça e/ou tonel irradiados receberam maior indicação de aprovação em todos os parâmetros analisados (aroma, sabor e aparência.The ageing or maturing process of drink improves the sensorial characteristics of the product making it a qualified drink with higher economical value.

This study aimed to characterize the expression of ABCB1 in breast tumors as a function of genetic, clinical, and histopathological variables. The ABCB1 expression was also evaluated in nonmalignant mammary tissues adjacent to tumors and in benign lesions. The detection of ABCB1 protein was performed by immunohistochemistry in tissue specimens of excised breasts obtained from a prospective cohort of Brazilian women with breast cancer.

    Full Text Available Existe uma proximidade entre a cultura moderna brasileira e Portugal, que pode ser identificada pelas influências sentidas na produção arquitectónica portuguesa. Genericamente, estas relações iniciaram-se com Brazil builds - Architecture new and old 1652-1942, que os portugueses conhecem desde meados da década de 1940, progredindo até à inauguração de Brasília que marca o declínio do interesse português na arquitectura do Brasil. As qualidades plásticas da arquitectura brasileira - consequência do uso e exploração das potencialidades do concreto armado - podem ser detectadas em alguns exemplos construídos em Portugal durante os anos cinquenta. A influência determinante de Oscar Niemeyer é a mais documentada. Um fenómeno semelhante estendeu-se aos antigos territórios coloniais africanos, onde Portugal manteve soberania até 1975. Aqui, todavia, o interesse na produção brasileira persistiu mais tempo se comparado com a metrópole. Tanto em Angola como em Moçambique assistiu-se a uma forte actividade construtiva durante as décadas de 1950-1960, prolongando-se até ao inicio dos anos setenta onde o recurso ao concreto armado se intensificou como prática dominante. Em alguns casos o seu uso traduziu-se em explorações plásticas originais. O exercício da arquitectura nos antigos territórios da África portuguesa beneficiava de alguma liberdade conceptual e, na generalidade, a qualidade do operariado não se diferenciava daquele que trabalhava no Portugal Ibérico. Dentro do contexto descrito serão aqui apresentados três casos de arquitectos com obra relevante em Angola e Moçambique, que construíram em concreto e, simultaneamente, tiveram ou manifestaram afinidades com a arquitectura brasileira do mesmo período. Em Angola, recorda-se o percurso de Francisco Castro Rodrigues, no Lobito entre 1953 e 1987, e de Fernão Lopes Simões de Carvalho, que permaneceu em Luanda de 1960 a 1967.

    and tip lines, we try to sort out if a dominant σ2 propagation direction, typical for hydrofractures, exists within the vein network. By doing so, we can evaluate whether the subhorizontal vein network formed under a compressive stress regime, or was mainly dictated by the strength anisotropy of the rocks under near-isotropic stress conditions of σhmax ≡ σhmin. The regional dominance of subhorizontal aplites, pegmatites and hydrothermal veins, exploiting subhorizontal fracture networks, occurs over a wide area of more than 100 km2 along the Serra de Estrela granitic massif (Derré et al., 1986). This orientation contrasts with the more common vertical attitude of granite-related hydrothermal veins, observed throughout the Iberian massif. A detailed orientation analysis of the fracture sets should allow to explore the possible causes of this particular late orogenic, flat-lying fracture network related to the granitic intrusion.

    Soft tissue sarcoma, a rare neoplasia with high aggressively, accounts for approximately 0,7% of the malignant tumors and occurs more often with youngest. Because of the potential risk of local recurrence, theoretically surgical resection, encompassing macroscopic tumor with a margin of macroscopically noninvolved tissue is the right way to perform, with a wide 'en bloc' resection, amputation, with bad functional results. The aim of conservative treatment is combined modality therapy as surgical resection and irradiation to obtain a local control rate as high as possible while preserving functional results. A retrospective review of 31 patients treated with high dose rate (HDR) Brachytherapy in the Radiotherapy Department Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho Cancer Institute. Methods: Between April 1995 and August 1999, 31 patients who underwent a combine therapy; examined the results on multivariate analysis of conservative surgery and brachytherapy follow/or not by external beam radiation (EBRT). The 31 patients treated, 17 ( 54,8%) females and 14(45,2%) males have a median age of 48 years ( range,19 to 77 years). Most of the tumors was located in the lower limb (17/31 - 54,8%) . The other sites were the upper limb (10/31-32,3%), thoracic wall and abdomen (3/31-9,7%).Classification of the tumors, according to the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) staging was T1 5 patients (16%), T2 (24/31-77%). Median size of the tumors was 9,2cm ( ranged, 2,5 to 24cm). Most of the tumors being malignant fibrous histiocytomas (9/31-29%) and the histological grade II (14/31-45%). Twenty-two (71%) patients had intraoperative implants and the insertion of the radioactive source was delayed 24 to 120 hours. Eight patients (25,8%) had postoperative and received HDRB 45 to 60 days after the surgery .

    Lioz: The Stone that made Lisbon reborn - A Global Heritage Stone Resource Proposal Explored since the Roman Period, the Lioz (Cenomanian age microcrystalline fossiliferous limestone) is the main stone used in the buildings and monuments of Lisbon. After the great cataclysm of 1755 (earthquake, tsunami and fire) of 1755, the already known great quality and the near occurrence of these limestones were wisely used in the great reconstruction of the "Capital do Império" (Capital of the Empire). At the time, Lisbon was one of the largest European cities and great business center of the World, so the necessary and urgent reconstruction was not so difficult to start. Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, better known as "Marquês de Pombal", Secretary of King José I, successfully took up the challenge of rebuilding Lisbon. Inside the actual Portuguese capital geographical limits, several quarries of the Cretaceous limestone were explored; some still exist and are classified as geomonuments (i.e., Rio Seco Geomonument, 38 ° 42'21 .67''N; 9 ° 11 '30.37''W). As the City boundaries expanded, the quarries stopped and now there is no one asset in Lisbon. The most important exploitation and processing Lioz stone center was situated in Pêro Pinheiro, 20 km NW of Lisbon. Most of the stones used in the National Palace-Convent of Mafra (1717) belongs to the four main types of Lioz (the cream/white "Abancado", the pink/dark pink "Encarnadão", the yellow "Amarelo de Negrais" and the blueish grey "Azulino"), either cut "against" (perpendicular to the bedding plane) or "along" (parallel to the bedding plane). The orientation stone cut deeply controls texture and mechanical properties of the rocks that behaves as different ones were considered. In the last two decades, the Lioz extraction was almost extinguished. However, some of the old quarries was reactivated and produces first quality blocks needed both for new works and restoration of historic buildings and monuments. The

    Full Text Available O Dossiê desta edição traz o tema "Construções de sentido" em três registros. No primeiro texto, Claude Zilberberg (Sorbonne e CNRS examina a interdependência entre discurso e acontecimento. O conceito de acontecimento é caro a certa vertente de estudos filosóficos franceses, mormente em Badiou, retomado por Zizek e outros autores. Zilberberg trata o acontecimento a partir do estudo de seu sincretismo em três modos semióticos: o da eficiência, o da existência e o modo da junção. Isabella Pezzini e Pierluigi Cervelli (que estarão no Programa de Estudos Pós-Graduados em Comunicação e Semiótica da PUC-SP em novembro próximo observam, por sua vez, outro aspecto das construções de sentido, ligado ao exame dos modos de consumo em sua relação com a cultura em espaços de autocelebração, como stores e museus. Eduardo Peñuela Cañizal (Unip e ECA-USP investiga a sobrevivência das imagens do cinema de vanguarda a partir de um estudo do papel das tecnologias.

O sucesso desse evento deve-se em grande parte aos trabalhos, apresentados sob a forma de palestras em mesas redondas ou painéis, por pesquisadores consagrados no Brasil e no exterior. O conteúdo dos trabalhos possui uma abrangência que se estende desde a Geologia até a Biologia, passando pela Oceanografia e Geografia, sempre com o objetivo comum de reunir dados sobre a Baía de Guanabara visando o diagnóstico ambiental. O Workshop Baía congregou diversas linhas de pesquisa desenvolvidas na Baía de Guanabara e regiões adjacentes, procurando uma integração das mesmas. Deste modo alguns trabalhos caracterizaram, em um contexto mais geral, a evolução do nível do mar na região sudeste durante o Holoceno, bem como apresentaram a neotectônica da região. Geoquímica orgânica de hidrocarbonetos e de metais pesados, sedimentologia e hidrogeologia integraram-se à distribuição de microorganismos nos sedimentos e na água, analisando diversas respostas a diferentes graus de poluição em regiões distintas. Um zoneamento ambiental ofereceu uma visão dinâmica das condições naturais e sociais do conjunto da Baía de Guanabara. A importância do workshop deve-se à busca de uma integração maior dos trabalhos acadêmicos para aplicação à gestão do desenvolvimento sustentável da Baía de Guanabara e seu entorno, que abriga a cidade do Rio de Janeiro e se constitui em uma das regiões com maior índice demográfico do Brasil. Seu impacto pode se avaliado pela presença de representantes de órgãos públicos como a SERLA, a Prefeitura de Niterói e ONGs ligadas a

A metodologia proposta para a realização deste estudo levou em consideração as abordagem descritiva e amostra não-probabilística. Para Gil (2008, p.42 as pesquisas descritivas têm como objetivo primordial a descrição das características de determinada população ou fenômeno ou, então, o estabelecimento de relações entre variáveis. A amostra não-probabilística foi utilizada para justificar a identificação dos clientes entrevistados. As entrevistas ocorreram de forma aleatória antes e depois dos clientes usufruírem do serviço. Cada questionário é composto por 23 perguntas e o tempo médio utilizado para responder a pesquisa até o final é de 5 a 7 minutos. Para a construção do questionário, foram realizadas adaptações no modelo servqual proposto por Parasuraman (1988 e Borges, Carvalho e Silva (2010. O questionário ainda agrega dados do perfil dos respondentes, como: gênero, idade, faixa-etária e escolaridade. A escolha do questionário se justifica pela necessidade de interação com os clientes, de modo a captar as suas percepções relacionadas aos serviços prestados. Almeja-se a partir de questionário, elaborar elementos que mais evidenciam, ou melhor, que se tornam mais importantes para definir a qualidade no atendimento e dos serviços prestados. O desenvolvimento do método desta pesquisa, que tem como instrumento o questionário, propõe analisar o ponto de vista do cliente em relação aos serviços prestados e o atendimento às suas expectativas. Este estudo torna-se relevante pelos seguintes aspectos: I o atendimento está diretamente ligado aos negócios que uma organização pode ou não pode realizar, de acordo com a suas normas e regras; II segundo Carvalho (1999, p. 233 apud, Labadessa e Oliveira o atendimento estabelece dessa forma uma relação dependência entre o atendente, a organização e ao

    que discorre sobre a situação da mulher na educação formal (básica e superior e na formação profissional e continuada. Ao apontar o currículo oculto na escolarização e na formação e orientação profissional das mulheres, a autora destaca a importância da transversalidade de gênero na educação e da perspectiva de gênero na coeducação, já que, embora sejam quantitativamente bem sucedidas no sistema educacional, as mulheres continuam em situação de desigualdade na educação profissional e superior e no mundo do trabalho. Considerando que a empregabilidade é um conceito situado, e que múltiplos eixos de diferença atravessam os sujeitos e impactam suas possibilidades de desenvolvimento laboral, argumenta que a nova e complexa realidade do trabalho requer novos olhares, saberes e habilidades complexas, como as femininas. Enfim, propõe e explicita um modelo formativo, baseado em competências laborais informadas pela perspectiva de gênero. A seção de artigos conta com seis textos que propõem refletir e analisar diferentes dimensões das temáticas do corpo, gênero, sexualidade e currículo. No primeiro artigo, intitulado “Entre o que se sabe e o que se faz: como os/as docentes têm se posicionado diante de práticas excludentes de gênero no contexto escolar?”, Ana Cristina Batista de Souza Rosa, Daiane Lins da Silva Firino e Maria Eulina Pessoa de Carvalho discutem a formação continuada de docentes na temática de gênero e as possibilidades de mudanças na prática docente. As autoras analisaram como os/as cursistas do Curso de Especialização Gênero e Diversidade na Escola - GDE têm se posicionado no contexto escolar diante do desafio de desconstruir práticas excludentes de gênero. E concluem que se faz necessária uma maior reflexão por parte dos/das docentes para que se posicionem criticamente diante de práticas excludentes de gênero.

    Full Text Available O trabalho introduz na historiografia contabilística o nome de um agente português que ajudou a disseminar as partidas dobradas em Portugal e divulga, comentando criticamente, a versão manuscrita original daquele que se crê ser o primeiro diploma de curso de um guarda-livros português. O profissional em questão, Felix Potier (1741-1790, um português nascido em Lisboa, filho de um negociante francês aí radicado, formou-se em 1763, mas apenas em 1771 terá requerido o seu diploma de curso. Potier foi um dos primeiros 61 alunos da Aula do Comércio, escola de contabilidade fundada em 1759 em Lisboa por Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, mais conhecido pelo seu título nobiliárquico de Marquês de Pombal (1770. Dos 61 alunos matriculados aquando da inauguração da escola, apenas 31 terão pedido à Junta do Comércio o seu diploma de conclusão de curso. E, tudo assim o indica, apenas uma dessas cartas de curso certificadoras das habilitações literárias obtidas na Aula do Comércio sobreviveu à inexorável passagem do tempo; aquela que este artigo intenta mostrar à comunidade, datada de 10 de janeiro de 1771, emitida pela Junta do Comércio, a instituição governamental a quem cabia a incumbência de gerir a escola. Potier iniciou o seu percurso profissional no Erário Régio (1763-1767 e depois, em 1767, começou a sua atividade no Colégio Real dos Nobres, instituição na qual foi o responsável pela contabilidade durante mais de 20 anos. As conclusões apoiam-se em fontes primárias de investigação, em legislação e em recursos secundários. O artigo contribui para a literatura com informação que permite um novo verbete no Dicionário de Professores e Alunos das Aulas de Comércio (1974, compêndio de Francisco Santana, cuja atualização se julga muito útil para a história da contabilidade lusófona. O estudo adiciona, bem assim, outros novos elementos ao conhecimento em geral e ao conhecimento da história da

    Viação Rio Ita que autorizou a divulgação de panfleto informativo sobre o Parque Paleontológico de Itaboraí em sua rede de ônibus. Além da psicóloga Patrícia Narcizo dos Santos, coordenadora do projeto, os alunos protagonista são: Daniele de Carvalho Santos, 15 anos, 7ª série; Einstein Ayres Araújo de Souza, 14 anos, 8ª série; Graciele Euzébio da Silva, 15 anos, 8ª série; Jéssika de Oliveira da Silva, 13 anos, 7ª série; Keyciane Ribeiro Mosca, 14 anos, 7ª série; Luana Silva de Carvalho, 13 anos, 7ª série; Miller Coelho da Motta, 13 anos, 8ª série; Thaís Fernandes Gomes Pereira, 13 anos, 7ª série; Wenderson Gonçalves dos Santos, 15 anos, 8ª série. 2 Justificativa do Projeto O referido projeto possui sua justificativa referenciada na relevância científica do sítio paleontológico da Bacia Calcária de São José de Itaboraí, região que apresenta uma enorme diversidade de fossilífera. Por outro lado, além da projeção dos achados fossilíferos na comunidade científica internacional, a região em questão consiste numa área de frágil equilíbrio ambiental, em franca degradação, atingida por desmatamentos e descaracterizada pela erosão. Assim sendo, considerando a relativa proximidade do referido sítio paleontológico em relação à cidade do Rio de Janeiro ( cerca de 48 km e a sua vinculação à comunidade do distrito de Cabuçu, área rural do Município de Itaboraí, ponderamos como bastante oportuno o resgate do sítio em questão, sob a forma de parque paleontológico, inserido na dinâmica da educação patrimonial, conectando-o à realidade concreta da vida comunitária local. Ressaltamos como argumento fundamental do projeto em pauta a real necessidade de revitalização do sítio paleontológico em foco, resgatando a sua dimensão científica, no universo da responsabilidade social, favorecendo a sustentabilidade sócio-econômica e a dinamização educativo-cultural. 3 Proposta de Sensibilização Comunitária Em

    LEVEL OF COMFORT’ AMONG INTERNATIONAL WORKERS MULTINATIONAL FIRMS, by Vijesh Jain and Susana Costa e Silva develops a measurement instrument of the comfort level of multinational workers in working with people of different national cultures. The authors apply this instrument to a sample of 550 workers from 14 nationalities and develop a ranking of the levels of comfort of these workers in interacting with nationals of other cultures. In addition to providing a useful instrument for researchers and companies wishing to assess comfort level, the article elaborates the concept of cultural comfort and its relation with cultural competence and the dimensions of Hofstede, Trompenaar's and Globe.EXPANSION MODE CHOICES: THE CASE OF US MULTINATIONALS IN BRAZIL, by Juliana Carvalho Sampaio Tourinho and Hsia Hua Sheng analyze the decisions taken by 10 large and experienced multinationals in Brazil, between 2004 and 2013, identifying the possible reasons for these decisions. The study finds evidence supporting Jean-François Hennart's complementary asset theory that states that complementary local assets have owners and that access to them entails transaction costs. The article adds details to the theory, one of the classic forms of case study contributions (Ridder, Hoon, & Mccandless, 2009. In ‘IF I HUFF AND I PUFF’, FOUNDATIONS FOR BUILDING BRAZIL’S IMAGE: EVIDENCE FROM AN INTERNATIONAL SYSTEMATIC REVIEW Fabiana Gondim Mariutti, Ralph Tench, Maria Gabriela Montanari and Janaina de Moura Engracia Giraldi carry out a systematic review of the literature on the country image construct and its relation with the country of origin theory. They relate these issues with recent changes in the Brazilian economic, political and social situation. They conclude that there is still great potential for research that advances the theoretical and methodological knowledge about the image of countries in general and of Brazil in particular.

    APRESENTAÇÃO

    A revista História da Educação cumprindo seu compromisso editorial, em seu número 22, apresenta a seus leitores uma série de artigos que, sem dúvida, reafirmam sua missão que é a de colaborar para o desenvolvimento da área da história da educação.

    Abrimos nossa revista com dois artigos de pesquisadores franceses Philippe Savoie e Renaud d’Enfert que com seus textos Criação e reinvenção dos Liceus (1802-1902 e Uma nova forma de ensino de desenho na França no início do Século XIX: o desenho linear nos trazem preciosa contribuição à investigação da história da educação do século XIX. É sabido de todos os estudiosos da área de educação a contribuição da França para a constituição do sistema de ensino brasileiro, portanto estes trabalhos trazem novas luzes no sentido de melhor conhecermos a gênese do estrutura educacional do século XIX.

    Com o texto A co-educação dos sexos: apontamentos para uma interpretação histórica a renomada pesquisadora Jane Soares de Almeida nos brinda com um trabalho de excepcional qualidade e que contribui para uma melhor compreensão da questão da coeducação.

    O professor Dagoberto Buim Arena retoma uma questão relacionada aos movimentos anarquistas e que tem ocupado a atenção de vários estudiosos na área da História da Educação. Escolas anarco-sindicalistas no Brasil: alguns princípios, métodos e organização curricular é mais uma contribuição para a construção de um bom entendimento da atuação deste movimento ideológico na área da educação.

    Full Text Available o presente trabalho, tem como objetivo discutir e analisar trajetórias, atuações e relações de ensino em que temos presente a figura do intérprete de língua de sinais educacional incluído na dinâmica escolar: sua emergência na escola, os discursos sobre sua função e as práticas decorrentes de sua atuação tradutória cotidiana - as implicações que há no ensino de surdos, os modos como se entende tal função. A tese tem como objetivo teorízar e afirmar pelo menos três modos de mestria presentes em variadas salas de aula, especificamente nas que contam com a presença de pessoas surdas e de intérpretes de língua de sinais educacional. Os modos são os seguintes: o mestre explicador, o revelador e o emissor de signos. Em cada análise, faço um aprofundamento das possíveis relações interpessoais entre os sujeitos em dada cena, sendo, portanto, relações de docência a partir dessas proposições. O olhar se dá nos espaços propostos e configurados a partir de uma relação docente, e com isso, as análises realizadas passam pelo olhar conceitual de Michel Foucault, tendo como marca as relações de subjetividades no ocidente. Para tal empreitada, buscaram-se, nos estudos foucaultianos os tipos de mestria possíveis, apresentados pelo autor na obra A hermenêutica do sujeito. Isso se fez para afirmar a necessidade de um retorno a uma relação antiga de ensino: um mestre que se ocupa com o processo e não com o yroduto; uma mestria que se faz não pela condução ao modelo, mas na presença do "estar com o outro". Assim, conceitos de Gilles Deleuze e Michel Foucault são trazidos e combinados entre si para complementar o que se afirma como mestria ativa, ou seja, uma posição-mestre, que possibilita efeito de relações parresiásticas de ensino. A posição-mestre será baliza da pela relação conceitual existente entre ela e a função-educador - conceito desenvolvido na tese de doutoramento de Carvalho (2008. Nesse

In the second article, by Alessandra Carvalho, José Neto, Luciana Moura, Gisele Fernandes, Marilu Figueiredo and Elaine Faria, it is regarded to perform a diagnosis of the soil usage as well as the state of preservation of the water resources of Juqueriquerê River’s watershed, in Caraguatatuba, Estate of Sao Paulo. The analysis of the data allowed the contrast between the degradation areas and the quality of the water resources.  They have stated that safety policies, respect of the soil usage and the proper application of environmental management plans are essential to achieve the sustainable use of the natural resources. Vassiliki Boulomytis and Claudia Alves present in the third article a proper methodology for the assessment of potato plantation areas, taking the short time of procedure into consideration, as the period between the plantation and the harvest occurs in six months the furthest. Considering the availability of LANDSAT medium resolution images, methods for their appropriate classification were used to provide effective target detection for potato plantation areas in the city of Bueno Brandão, Estate of Minas Gerais. The fourth article written by Dante Junior, Geraldo Filho and Maria Seydell presents the potential for wind power generation in the town of Caraguatatuba, Estate of Sao Paulo. The statistical analysis of wind speed has contributed to this evaluation. The authors stated that the average power of the wind speed is favorable to the installation of wind turbines in all seasons. The fifth article presents the research conducted by Beatriz Antoniassi, Nathalie Miranda, Raúl Uribe and Márcia Chaves. They show the analyzes of water from the streams Água Comprida, Vargem Limpa, Ribeirão Vargem Limpa and Bauru River between the center and the industrial district of the city of Bauru, Estate of Sao Paulo. For this comparative analysis, they have conducted a quantitative and

A fermentação com NF mostrou maior número de leveduras selvagens; no entanto, não houve diferença significativa no número de bactérias quando comparada com CF. Uma intensa acidificação foi observada durante o preparo de NF, a qual foi verificada nos ciclos iniciais da fermentação, decrescendo a seguir. As alterações na composição da cachaça foram mais significativas em relação à maturação do que ao tipo de fermento, com exceção da acidez. No entanto, houve uma perda significativa de aroma, sabor e impressão global após a maturação na cachaça produzida com CF. Os resultados revelaram uma forte interação entre fermento e envelhecimento (maturação da bebida, sugerindo que substâncias produzidas pelos microrganismos a partir de inóculos diferentes reagiram diferentemente com componentes da madeira dos barris, influenciando nos atributos sensoriais de aceitabilidade.

In order to determine how fire and post-fire changes change soil erosion rates we selected 12 research sites at the study area of the Massís del Caroig, Eastern Spain, which suffered different fires in the last century. The parent material is limestone in all study sites and the mean annual rainfall ranges from 480 to 550 mm per year in average. The vegetation consists of scrubland (Maquia) with different species. In the years after the fire Brachypodium retusum, Thymus vulgaris, Fumana Ericoides, Cistus Albidus, Ulex parviflorus or Rosmarinus officinalis regenerated, but after some years dense shrub cover develops with typical species such as Quercus coccifera, Quercus ilex, Pistacia lentiscus and Junyperus oxycedurs. Soils are shallow (0-30 cm depth) and distributed in pockets of soil mixed with rock outcrops. All the selected plots were located on the middle tram of the slopes to avoid differences, although previous studies showed no differences in infiltration rates, overland flow and soil erosion on the different trams of the slopes on limestone (Cerdà, 1998d). Each site was selected upon the last fire registered: 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 16, 24, 33, 44, 51, and 63 years after the last fire. The measurements were carried out in August 2013 by means of a portable rainfall simulator (Cerdà et al., 2009; Iserloh et al., 2013). Ten plots of 0.25 m2 were selected at each site. Rainfall simulation at 55 mm h-1 during one hour was applied. The results show that immediately after the wildfires the soil erosion was negligible due to the ash cover, which acted as mulch, meanwhile after few months (1 year after the fire) the highest soil losses were measured. After 5 years the soil losses had reduced significantly and after 16 years were negligible.

    Com o texto A educação no Brasil Império: análise da organização da instrução na Província de Minas Gerais (1850-1889, os investigadores Renata Fernandes Maia de Andrade e Carlos Henrique de Carvalho propõem-se a discutir as concepções de educação do governo mineiro na segunda metade do século 19. Há um destaque na compreensão de importantes facetas das políticas provinciais para a instrução, tais como a profissão docente e as escolas normais; a organização administrativa; a instrução pública e particular dentre outras apontadas e discutidas ao longo trabalho.

    No artigo seguinte Trabalho do professor: do dizer das tradições a emergência de sentidos contemporâneos os investigadores Rosa Maria Filippozzi Martini e Paulo Roberto Corrêa Glasorester analisam as diferentes tradições que deram sentido ao trabalho docente. Trata-se de uma pesquisa qualitativa, realizada em textos de história da educação e de filosofia com caráter interdisciplinar.. Foi possível constatar a emergência de antigos significados que assumiram novas dimensões na atualidade.

    O professor Wenceslau Gonçalves Neto no trabalho O município e a educação em minas gerais: a implementação da instrução pública no início do período republicano, apresente o resultado de pesquisa realizada com financiamento do CNPq, evidencia como o poder local participa do esforço pela instrução pública, a aproximação/distanciamento com a proposta oficial do Estado, as dimensões político-ideológicas, o grau de complexidade das iniciativas, as perspectivas que se abrem, o funcionamento e a eficácia do sistema, etc. Ou seja, estender aos municípios a análise da formação dos sistemas públicos de ensino no início do per

    autoimmune diseases (AID) result from Treg deficits, some of which might have a thymic origin, we also speculate on therapeutic strategies aiming at selectively stimulating their de novo production or peripheral function, within recent findings on Treg responses to inflammation (Caramalho et al. 2003; Lopes-Carvalho et al., submitted, Caramalho et al., submitted). In short, the MM96 argued that natural tolerance is dominant, established and maintained by the activity of Treg, which are selected upon high-affinity recognition of self-ligands on TECs, and committed intrathymically to a unique differentiative pathway geared to anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative effector functions. By postulating the intrathymic deletion of self-reactivities on hemopoietic stromal cells (THC), together with the inability of peripheral resident lymphocytes to engage in the regulatory pathway, the MM96 simultaneously explained the maintenance of responsiveness to non-self in a context of suppression mediating dominant self-tolerance. The major difficulty of the MM96 is related to the apparent tissue specificity of Treg repertoires generated intrathymically. This difficulty has now been principally solved by the work of Hanahan, Kyewski and others (Jolicoeur et al. 1994; Derbinski et al. 2001; Anderson et al. 2002; Gotter et al. 2004), demonstrating the selective expression of a variety of tissue-specific antigens by TECs, in topological patterns that are compatible with the MM96, but difficult to conciliate with recessive tolerance models (Kappler et al. 1987; Kisielow et al. 1988). While the developmentally regulated multireactivity of TCR repertoires (Gavin and Bevan 1995), as well as the peripheral recruitment of Treg among RTE (Modigliani et al. 1996a) might add to this process, it would seem that the establishment of tissue-specific tolerance essentially stems from the "promiscuous expression of tissue antigens" by TEC. The findings of AID resulting from natural mutations (reviewed in

    O objetivo deste trabalho foi diagnosticar aspectos relevantes da produção de cachaça, assim como avaliar características físico-químicas de cachaça branca e envelhecida, produzidas na região de Orizona, Goiás. Para coleta de dados, foram utilizadas técnicas de investigação qualitativas (entrevistas e observação assistemática e quantitativas (aplicação de questionário estruturado. Foram coletadas trinta e quatro diferentes amostras de cachaça da safra 2004, sendo trinta amostras de cachaça branca e quatro envelhecidas em tonéis de carvalho, nos vinte e um alambiques visitados. Analisou-se o grau alcoólico, extrato seco e acidez volátil, segundo metodologia recomendada pelo Ministério da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento do Brasil. Apesar da tradição, entre os produtores de Orizona (GO existem diferenças marcantes, quanto aos níveis sócioeconômico e tecnológico. Dentre as

As amostras foram classificadas externamente quanto aos aspectos morfológicos (forma, marcas de superfície e grau de preservação e pelos aspectos morfométricos (tamanho, densidade e peso. O procedimento analítico da estrutura interna consistiu da extração de frações pulverizadas das estruturas envolvidas no estudo, e submetidas a diferentes tratamentos analíticos (difratometria, fluorescência e infravermelho, além da realização de seções laminares longitudinais e transversais analisadas em microscópio petrográfico e em microscópio eletrônico de varredura. Os coprólitos estudados estão associados a diferentes assembléias fósseis que viveram em diferentes momentos do Cretáceo no território brasileiro. Os exemplares analisados, cerca de duzentos, apresentam na sua maioria morfotipos ovóides, cilíndricos, espiralados e cônicos, sendo observada pela primeira vez a ocorrência de morfotipos esborrados em alguns afloramentos da Bacia Bauru no Estado de São Paulo.

No capítulo 1, como parte introdutória, apresenta-se uma compilação 126 Anuário do Instituto de Geociências - UFRJ Volume 21 / 1998 concernente aos nanofósseis calcários. Tópicos relacionados à biologia , bioestratigrafia, paleooceanografia, taxonomia e métodos de estudo, entre outros, são abordados. No segundo capítulo, discorre-se a respeito das zonas cretáceas da margem continental brasileira baseadas em nanofósseis. Tentou-se apresentar um inventário completo e a história de cada biozona, com seus aspectos positivos e negativos. Posteriormente, em função das conclusões obtidas são postuladas algumas mudanças estruturais do arcabouço bioestratigráfico cretáceo. Tais mudanças conduziram à formulação de um zoneamento hipotético que vem sendo testado, com sucesso, nas várias bacias marginais brasileiras. A grande maioria das biozonas postuladas pertencem à categoria zona de intervalo e seus limites são identificados a partir de eventos biológicos de extinção. Entretanto, uma delas (amais antiga pode ser classificada como zona de amplitude. No terceiro capítulo, o zoneamento é aplicado para as bacias do Cearé e Potiguar. As zonas reconhecidas foram correlacionadas com aquelas de foraminíferos e palinomorfos. Em função destas comparações, ocorreram ajustes cronoestratigráficos para a amplitude de algumas biozonas. Tais ajustes deram-se em relação à amplitude atribuída anteriormente com base apenas em informações bibliográficas. Antes da elaboração deste trabalho eram reconhecidas sete unidades bioestratigráficas de nanofósseis para a seção cretácea marinha das duas bacias. Com a consecução das análises conseguiram

A bacia hidrográfica do Bonfim, com 3042,3ha , localiza-se em Cascatinha, seguido distrito de Petrópolis-RJ, no reverso da Serra do Mar, onde o seu relevo apresenta feições abruptas e escarpadas, em que a drenagem está sob controle litoestrutural, tendo como principal rio, o Paraíba que drena para a bacia do Rio Paraíba do Sul. O clima tropical de altitude, sob influência marítimica e orográfica, determina alta pluviosidade na Serra dos órgãos, diminuindo substancialmente para jusante. Para a execução deste projeto de pesquisa, procedeu-se à elaboração de bases temáticas (geologia, geomorfologia, pedologia, declividades, compartimentação de relevo, ecossistemas, uso do solo e cobertura, bem como a pluviosidade local. Com a utilização do SGI (SAGA/UFRJ, estas bases foram transformadas em bases digitais geocodificadas, sendo possível a sua recuperação e entrecruzamento, para efeito de análise ambientar. Foi possível avaliar a fragilidade natural da bacia correlacionando-se os seus fatores físicos, bem como, proceder-se a avaliação ambiental correlacionado-se os fatores físicos aos de ordem sócio-econômica, o uso do solo. A identificação de 48 unidades ambientais a partir da correlação das variáveis pedologia, geomorfologia e declividade possibilitou caracterizar e identificar o uso atual e recomendado, considerando-se os seus fatores físicos, pluviosidade e vocação ocupacional da região, ditada pela expansão urbana e necessidade de novos espaços.

    turística tende a ter um crescimento imobiliário muito rápido, o que pode trazer conseqüências ambientais catastróficas se esta evolução do processo de modificação da paisagem não tiver um acompanhamento técnico para a sua implantação. Visou-se realizar análise ambiental da área, utilizando o mapeamento geológico-geotécnico como instrumento básico de orientação ao planejamento urbano, recorrendo-se às técnicas de geoprocessamento, em especial aos diferentes tipos de produto de Sensoriamento Remoto e aos Sistemas de Informação Geografia (SIG, como ferramentas poderosas para criação de banco de dados acessíveis ao monitoramento ao longo de todo crescimento urbano. O conjunto de informações obtidas pelas técnicas de geoprocessamento e pelas observações diretas dos trabalhos de campo permitiu a compreensão dos impactos provocados pelas diversas formas de intervenção nos processos geológicos superficiais, isoladamente ou em associações. Para efeito de sistematização, enfatizou-se a degradação da vegetação, assoreamento, fontes de erosão, poluição de aqüíferos e das drenagens fluviais, disposição de efluentes, e dinâmica litorânea nas faixas de praia. Tendo em vista minimizar ou cessar os efeitos provocados pelas diversas formas de intervenção faz-se recomendações gerais e/ou específicas.

Esta é uma bacia do tipo rifte, cuja evolução está relacionada à abertura da margem atlântica no intervalo geocronológico do Albiano ao Cenomaniano. As rochas cretáceas aflorantes nesta bacia recebem a denominação de Formação Itapecuru e abrangem um conjunto de sedimentos siliciclásticos. Nesta unidade ocorrem fósseis e icnofósseis de vertebrados, invertebrados e restos vegetais. Nos arenitos da praia da Baronesa, município de Alcântara encontra-se uma fauna de vertebrados fósseis bastante diversificada, que inclui dentes e escamas de peixes, dentes de crocodilianos, mosassauros, pegadas e dentes isolados de dinossauros que constituem importantes elementos nas inferências taxonômicas, sistemáticas, correlações estratigráficas e interpretações paleoambientais. Os fósseis encontrados nessa área são formados, em grande parte, de dentes isolados. Estes são diagnósticos e permitiu a identificação, se não a nível de espécie, mas pelo menos a um nível taxonômico mais específico do que permitiriam simples fragmentos ósseos desarticulados. Neste trabalho são apresentadas identificações e descrições, análises morfol

Nome: Newton dos Santos Carvalho Título: Os Condicionantes Geológico-Geotécnicos na Ocupação do Espaço Subterrâneo no Município do Rio de Janeiro Orientador: Sérgio Augusto Barreto Fontoura Resumo: A ocupação do espaço subterrâneo é uma das alternativas nas grandes cidades, que visa contornar, entre outros, dois grandes problemas: a falta de espaço e a deterioração do meio ambiente em superfície. A ausência de conhecimento prévio e adequado das reais características do subsolo constitui-se em um outro grave problema. O município do Rio de Janeiro já foi palco de vários empreendimentos em seus subterrâneos, alguns deles implantados, ao que parece, sem estudos e análises geológicogeotécnicas mais detalhadas. O presente trabalho mostra, primeiramente, como foi a ocupação dos subterrâneos desse município ao longo dos anos. Em vários casos pode-se constatar a pouca, ou mesmo inexistência, de documentos sobre essas obras. São apresentados, em seguida, os principais condicionantes geológico-geotécnicos identificados na tentativa de subsidiar estudos, entre outros, para a ocupação futura e racional do espaço subterrâneo no município do Rio de Janeiro Nome: Manuel Henrique Carreira Morais Título: Os Equinóides Regulares da Formação Pirabas (Oligo-Mioceno, Pará, Brasil - Sistemática, Tafonomia e Paleoecologia Orientador: Ignácio Aureliano Machado Brito 116 Anuário do Instituto de Geociências - UFRJ Volume 21 / 1998 Resumo: O presente trabalho realiza a

    sociedade.Maria João de Carvalho, José Viegas Brás e Maria Neves Gonçalves, autores portugueses, elegem o conceito de self-government para compreender o contributo da obra de António Sérgio para a renovação da Educação na primeira metade do século 20 em Portugal. Uma gama variada de documentos indiciam as idéias deste importante autor: textos de conferências, cartas, textos doutrinários e ensaios. Destacam que no cerne do pensamento do autor encontra-se a concepção de educação baseada no self-government, ou seja, inspirado pela Escola Ativa, propugnava a criação de sujeitos livres, ativos, autónomos, emancipados, participando ativa e solidariamente numa escola-comunidade, regida pelos princípios do self-government.Somos convidados a acompanhar Felismina e Libertina à escola, ou em sua luta pelo acesso à educação na cidade do Rio de Janeiro, no período da abolição e no pós-abolição (1888-1906, discutido no artigo de Alessandra Frota Martinez de Schueler, Irma Rizzini e Jucinato Marques. Os autores se valem desse convite para examinar as tensões e limites da escolarização no contexto do pós-abolição, quando a instrução popular contrasta com expectativas e ações de libertos e livres. Entre outras ricas questões abordadas neste artigo, acerca de um período histórico pouco pesquisado, podemos estabelecer algumas relações com os artigos do dossiê deste número 46, pois os autores também constatam que o poder público valeu-se de malabarismos numéricos, apesar das fragilidades dos levantamentos estatísticos. Indicam que houve disputas para a produção e divulgação de estatísticas e ressaltam que os números podem ser lidos sob distintas perspectivas, por exemplo no que se refere aos índices de instrução pública da população e  às condições de acesso à instrução. O artigo seguinte, de Fabio de Faria Peres e Victor Andrade de Melo, detém-se no século 19, perscruta em três impressos em circulação no Rio de
