    In 1986 Denmark had a population of 5.11 million and an annual growth rate of 0.07%. Education attendance was 100%, and the literacy rate was 99%. The infant mortality rate stood at 7.7/100, and life expectancy averaged 71.5 years for men and 77.5 years for women. Of the work force of 2.5 million, 7% were engaged in agriculture and fisheries, 46% worked in industry and commerce, 13% were in the services sector, and 31% were employed by the government. Denmark's gross domestic product (GDP) was US $57.9 billion in 1985, with an annual growth rate of 3.8% and a per capita income of $11,312. Denmark is a constitutional monarchy, and political life is orderly and democratic. The largest political party, the Social Democratic Party, is closely identified with the labor movement and has held power either alone or in coalition for most of the postwar period. In recent decades, the Danish economy has been characterized by industrial expansion and diversification, as well as continued dependence on foreign trade. Today, almost 60% of total merchandise exports stem from manufactured products and the agricultural share has dropped to 30%. Beginning in the 1960s, the public sector took on an increasing number of new employees. The number of persons employed in local and central government services, especially health and social sectors, increased from 368,000 in 1967 to 678,000 in 1977. . PMID:12177921

    2003-05-01

    In the light of the current American epidemic, and since West Nile fever (WNF) has never previously been reported in Denmark, we describe two cases imported from Israel and Canada, respectively. WNF was diagnosed in a 46-year-old Danish tourist returning from Israel and a visiting 73-year-old Canadian citizen with Danish ancestry. The former manifested itself clinically as a mild flu-like illness, the latter as serious infection of the central nervous system. Thus, in addition to representing a rare case of West Nile encephalitis, it also constitutes one of the first reported cases of human infection of Canadian origin. PMID:12795078

  8. Molecular characterization of melanoma cases in Denmark suspected of genetic predisposition.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Karin A W Wadt

    Full Text Available Both environmental and host factors influence risk of cutaneous melanoma (CM, and worldwide, the incidence varies depending on constitutional determinants of skin type and pigmentation, latitude, and patterns of sun exposure. We performed genetic analysis of CDKN2A, CDK4, BAP1, MC1R, and MITFp.E318K in Danish high-risk melanoma cases and found CDKN2A germline mutations in 11.3% of CM families with three or more affected individuals, including four previously undescribed mutations. Rare mutations were also seen in CDK4 and BAP1, while MC1R variants were common, occurring at more than twice the frequency compared to Danish controls. The MITF p.E318K variant similarly occurred at an approximately three-fold higher frequency in melanoma cases than controls. To conclude, we propose that mutation screening of CDKN2A and CDK4 in Denmark should predominantly be performed in families with at least 3 cases of CM. In addition, we recommend that testing of BAP1 should not be conducted routinely in CM families but should be reserved for families with CM and uveal melanoma, or mesothelioma.

    2010-01-01

    Experience shows that to achieve a successful implementation of EHR clinicians must obtain joint ownership of the decisions made during the EHR-process. The EHR planning process in the Region of North Jutland, Denmark was studied with the aim of answering the question; "Why are not all Danish physicians overjoyed by the introduction of EHR? A case study was carried out from Oct. 2003 till April 2006 using process analysis. The EHR project management's strategy meant that there was no workload reduction. This was seen as one of the main barriers for the physicians to achieve real influence. History shows that clinician's on the one hand and administrators on the other have different perceptions of the purpose of the patient record and that they both have struggled to influence this definition. To date, the administrators have won the battle. This was the major reason for the approach chosen for the EHR planning process in North Jutland, Denmark. It explains the conditions made available for the physicians, which led to their role being reduced to clinical consultants--rather than real participants.

  13. Cultural Diversity Issues in Biodiversity Monitoring—Cases of Lithuania, Poland and Denmark

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Małgorzata Grodzińska-Jurczak

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available Public participation is a key element in nature conservation in Europe and a necessity for collecting broad scale data on biodiversity and its dynamics. However, vast societal differences exist between eastern and western European countries, resulting in problems for public participation in post-communist states as compared to western countries. Here, we compare diversity in monitoring practices and public participation in countries with different political histories. Drawing on in-depth ethnographic studies conducted in Lithuania and Poland, as well as a rapid assessment in Denmark, we have focused on the historical, cultural and social determinants of the volunteers’ participation in biodiversity monitoring. Our results indicate the reasons why volunteer involvement—as an expression of a participatory approach—has a lower incidence in the post-communist countries, compared to voluntarism common in occidental democracies. We discuss our results in the context of the main social factors considered to be a legacy of the Soviet regime.

  15. Local Circles in a Circular Economy – the Case of Smartphone Repair in Denmark

    Henrik Riisgaard

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Circular economy has gained increasing attention the last decade, and more often the main focus is on the large  global circles addressing recycling of materials rather than the “inner circles” that address maintenance/repair and reuse. In this article we investigate one such inner circle ofthe circular economy namely repair of smartphones which extends the lifetime of products and adds to a local economy. Local repair of smartphones has increased in the resent years in Denmark. These loop-closing businesses not only extend the useful lifetime of smartphones; they also entail both environmental benefits and economic value creation. We map the extent ofthe repair sector and investigate the drivers and barriers for its emergence. The study builds on desk studies for identification of repair companiesand telephone interviews with 33 out of 90 identified companies. The mapping of the businessesshows that the repair of smartphones constitute viable business opportunities, and that the main driversarerelated to the economic business potentials as well as motivated entrepreneurs who spot a market potential.The study concludes that the local circular economy within smartphone repair is due to large consumer willingness-to-pay for repair and maintenance services, and this can extend the lifetime of the smartphones. There are some special characteristics that limit the possibility to apply the results directly to other product groups, but further analysis of how to facilitate repair shops within other product groups are interesting in order to facilitate the development of local circles in a circular economy not only in Denmark but also in other countries.   Keywords: Circular economy; Smartphone;Repair; Remanufacturing.

  18. Some empirical insights into cultural differences and management practices: the case of Denmark and Slovenia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aprila Cotič

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents field research on differences in managers’ practices and behaviour in two EU countries: Denmark and Slovenia. The theoretical foundation of the research is based on cultural dimensions proposed by Hofstede and Hall. We combined the quantitative part of the research, which was based on surveys between Danish and Slovenian managers with semi-structured interviews. We confirmed many significant differences between Danish and Slovenian management practices and values that were predominantly consequence of two of Hofstede’s cultural dimensions: Power Distance and Uncertainty Avoidance. The emphasis of the research was on the presumption that these differences are even more articulated in extreme situations, such as the current economic crises. We also implicitly sought the answer to the question of what can Slovenian managers learn from the Danish experience. The main scientific contribution of the research is the methodological platform for further research on the effects of cultural characteristics on management practices and business efficiency within the main clusters of the EU countries.

  2. LCA of biomass-based energy systems: A case study for Denmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: ► We assessed the environmental impacts of potential energy scenarios for DK. ► Domestic biomass resources were insufficient to cover the energy demand. ► Significant GHGs emissions reductions were achieved in the assessed scenarios. ► RME-biodiesel production for heavy transport resulted in high GW impact due to LUC. ► Eutrophication impact was an effect of crops cultivation and digestate use on land. -- Abstract: Decrease of fossil fuel consumption in the energy sector is an important step towards more sustainable energy production. Environmental impacts related to potential future energy systems in Denmark with high shares of wind and biomass energy were evaluated using life-cycle assessment (LCA). Based on the reference year 2008, energy scenarios for 2030 and 2050 were assessed. For 2050 three alternatives for supply of transport fuels were considered: (1) fossil fuels, (2) rapeseed based biodiesel, and (3) Fischer–Tropsch based biodiesel. Overall, the results showed that greenhouse gas emissions per PJ energy supplied could be significantly reduced (from 68 to 17 Gg CO2-eq/PJ) by increased use of wind and residual biomass resources as well as by electrifying the transport sector. Energy crops for production of biofuels and the use of these biofuels for heavy terrestrial transportation were responsible for most environmental impacts in the 2050 scenarios, in particular upstream impacts from land use changes (LUCs), fertilizer use and NOx emissions from the transport sector were critical. Land occupation (including LUC effects) caused by energy crop production increased to a range of 600–2100 × 106 m2/PJ depending on the amounts and types of energy crops introduced. Use of fossil diesel in the transport sector appeared to be environmentally preferable over biodiesel for acidification, aquatic eutrophication and land occupation. For global warming, biodiesel production via Fischer–Tropsch was comparable with fossil diesel.

    In this paper, we set out to investigate the price and quantity fluctuations in Western Denmark, which took place during the winter season 2002-2003. It was a period, which exhibited critical supply conditions in the Nordic area due to a shortage of hydropower. On average, the market in Western Denmark helped to ease the situation by large net exports. However, a more detailed investigation reveals anomalies in market behaviour that do not fit well into this overall positive description of the situation. Several explanations of the anomalies are offered. These may work separately or act in concert. In particular, we look at: the exercise of market power and gaming of the dominant power generator; the role of the large capacity of volatile wind power; the role of the guaranteed fixed prices and the design and functioning of the special auction system of transmission capacity in the interface between Western Denmark and Germany.

    2008-01-01

    PURPOSE: To evaluate the prevalence of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations and associations with clinical correlates of disease in a population-based series of ovarian cancer cases from Denmark. METHODS: DNA sequencing and multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification analysis were used to analyze...... the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes for coding sequence mutations and large genomic rearrangements in 445 confirmed cases of ovarian cancer. We evaluated associations between mutation status and clinical characteristics, including cancer risks for first-degree relatives and clinicopathologic features of tumors....... RESULTS: Deleterious BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations were identified in 26 cases; thus, mutations in these genes are responsible for at least 5.8% of ovarian cancer cases in this population.

    Geographical differences in the occurrence of diseases in male reproductive organs, including malformation in reproductive tract, between Denmark and Finland have been reported. The reason for these differences is unknown, but differences in exposure to chemicals with endocrine-disrupting abilities have been suggested. Among these chemicals are perfluoro-alkylated substances (PFASs), a group of water- and grease-repellent chemicals used in outdoor clothes, cookware, food packaging, and textiles. In this study, we, therefore, investigated differences in PFAS exposure levels between Denmark and Finland and the association between cord blood PFAS levels and congenital cryptorchidism. Boys from a joint ongoing prospective birth cohort study were included. We analyzed PFAS levels in cord blood serum samples collected from 29 Danish boys with congenital cryptorchidism, 30 healthy Danish matched controls recruited from 1997 to 2001, 30 Finnish cases, and 78 Finnish healthy matched controls recruited from 1997 to 1999. Additionally, 48 Finnish cases recruited from 2000 to 2002 were included. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) were detected in all the 215 Danish and Finnish cord blood samples with significantly higher levels being observed in the Danish samples (medians: PFOA, 2.6 ng/ml and PFOS, 9.1 ng/ml) than in the Finnish samples (medians: PFOA, 2.1 ng/ml and PFOS, 5.2 ng/ml). We found no associations between cord blood PFOA and PFOS levels and congenital cryptorchidism after adjustment for confounders. Our data indicate that women in Denmark and Finland are generally exposed to PFOA and PFOS but there are differences in exposure levels between countries. We found no statistically significant association between cord blood PFOA and PFOS levels and congenital cryptorchidism; however, our study was small and larger studies are warranted. PMID:24218628

    The Danish case-study of the CO2STORE project comprises the potential future capture and underground storage of CO{sub 2} from two point sources. These are the coal fired power plant Asnaesvaerket and the Statoil refinery both located in the city of Kalundborg, Denmark. Initial mapping of the storage structure was conducted as part of the EU funded research project GESTCO that was concluded in 2003. The study identified a large underground structure forming a potential, future storage site 15 km to the northeast of the city. Porous sandstones filled with saline water at a depth of approximately 1.500 m form the reservoir. The structure covers approximately 160 km{sup 2} and a preliminary calculation suggests a storage capacity of nearly 900 million tonnes of CO2 equal to more than 150 years of CO{sub 2} emissions from the two point sources. In the Kalundborg case-study, a fictive capture and storage scenario will be formulated and modelled. The scenario is based on experiences learned through the SACS and GESTCO projects. Detailed geological modelling, reservoir simulation, reservoir and cap rock characterisation and risk assessment will be important issues for the case-study. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) is project leader for the Kalundborg case-study. Information on CO{sub 2} emissions from the point sources and technical and economical input for the three scenarios is provided by the industrial partners; ENERGI E2 and Statoil ASA. The scenario is designed only for this case study and does not reflect the strategic plans of ENERGI E2 nor Statoil ASA. Geochemical simulation and modelling studies on reservoir and cap rock were performed at Bureau de Recherches Geologiques et Minieres (BRGM) in France. The CO2STORE project is performed within the European Community supported 5th Framework Programme. (au)

    Full Text Available O ritmo acelerado das inovações tecnológicas, nos últimos anos, tem causado impacto social, político, cultural, ecológico e econômico nas nações. Nos anos 1980/1990, uma comissão da ONU teve a responsabilidade de levantar os problemas que o Homem teria nas décadas vindouras, o que subsidiou a Conferência das Nações Unidas sobre Meio Ambiente e Desenvolvimento - ECO-1992. Neste encontro, 179 países assinaram uma agenda de compromissos para o século XXI, a Agenda XXI, e apresentaram a proposta de ecoeficiência para auxiliar as empresas no planejamento ambiental, abordando uma nova dimensão de competitividade: produzir com eficiência, utilizando menos insumos e gerando menos rejeitos. Além desta necessidade de conservação ambiental, o ser humano está exigindo que as empresas se apropriem das altas tecnologias - high tech - existentes em outros países. Contudo, dependendo do nível de desenvolvimento dos países, os empresários devem ter o cuidado para que os nativos usuários estejam preparados para absorver estas inovações. Este trabalho apresenta um modelo que investiga os caminhos necessários à apropriação de tecnologia e define uma metodologia de cálculo do nível tecnológico nas tomadas de decisão quanto à apropriação de inovação. O estudo de caso aplicado é da apropriação da tecnologia alemã de fabricação de tijolos estruturais de cerâmica vermelha de alta porosidade no Brasil. São identificadas lacunas - gaps - existentes entre a expectativa do cliente e a sua percepção em relação ao produto ofertado; estas lacunas delineiam o perfil tecnológico do produto. A experiência testa que, na Alemanha, o desenvolvimento da indústria cerâmica ocorreu pautado em base de sustentabilidade, enquanto, no Brasil, tal desenvolvimento ainda é tímido, se forem considerados os requisitos ambientais, principalmente no que diz respeito à equidade entre gerações quanto à eficiência energética.

    Full Text Available Apesar de o conceito de computador pessoal (personal computer - PC ter surgido nos anos 70, essa indústria realmente deslanchou somente após o lançamento do IBM PC, em 1981. Por meio de uma agressiva estratégia de outsourcing, a IBM rapidamente conquistou o mercado, mas esta estratégia também causou perda de competências internas para seus principais parceiros, Intel e Microsoft, bem como outros revendedores autônomos. No Brasil, atualmente, a indústria de PCs está relegada à montagem de kits importados e também à manufatura das etapas finais do processo de produção de componentes, com pouco valor agregado localmente. Após o término da reserva de mercado, marcado pela súbita abertura aos concorrentes externos, houve desmantelamento da indústria brasileira de PCs e de semicondutores, nos elos de maior valor agregado dessa cadeia. Para obter inserção nas cadeias globais, as empresas brasileiras precisam atingir qualificação nos critérios de desempenho, a fim de participar dos processos de outsourcing. Este artigo visa, por meio de um aparato teórico que relaciona aspectos de outsourcing, inovação, valor e evolução da indústria de PCs, a investigar os impactos desses aspectos na competitividade da indústria de PCs do Brasil e as repercussões para seu crescimento e inserção no mercado global. A abordagem metodológica adotada foi estudo de múltiplos casos, com os seguintes critérios de seleção: diferentes papéis na cadeia de valor, grau de verticalização, principal mercado visado e tamanho da empresa.Although the personal computer (PC appeared in the seventies, this industry really boomed only after IBM launched its PC, in 1981.

MÉTODOS: O estudo foi desenvolvido em duas indústrias vidreiras -- automática e manual --, no Município de São Paulo, Brasil, entre 1996 e 1997. A metodologia utilizada teve como base a análise ergonômica do trabalho. A pesquisa foi realizada utilizando-se estudo de caso e comparações entre dois grupos de trabalhadores, incluindo observação direta dos postos de trabalho, entrevistas e um questionário respondido por 41 trabalhadores: 14 da sopragem manual de vidro e 27 da operação da máquina automática. O questionário estruturado versava sobre queixas de saúde e características do trabalho e do posto. RESULTADOS: A comparação entre os dois grupos de trabalhadores apontou diferenças estatisticamente significativas em relação às respostas sobre o nível de ruído, as ferramentas de trabalho, a variação de postura no posto de trabalho e as queixas de dores nos braços. Foram detectados fatores de risco, tais como repetição dos movimentos para os trabalhadores da indústria manual e fatores da organização do trabalho nas duas indústrias, tais como ritmo, participação em decisões importantes e treinamento. CONCLUSÕES: O uso da metodologia ergonômica mostrou-se adequada. O estudo confirmou a exposição dos trabalhadores a intensidades elevadas de ruído e a altas temperaturas. Na indústria manual, o trabalhador parece desempenhar um papel que o faz se sentir mais importante, pois ele realiza uma parte significativa do trabalho total, diferentemente do trabalhador da indústria automática que está "vigiando" um processo em que a máquina é a produtora.OBJECTIVE: To investigate how the use of different technologies, organizational structures, and task control determine the health-disease process in workers..

    Full Text Available This article analyzes the practice of infanticide in indigenous communities in Brazil. Taking as a reference point a specific case involving two children of the Zuruahá people, it takes a broader look at the issue and discusses how infanticide is understood among other indigenous peoples. A debate focusing specifically on this topic that took place during a public hearing held in the Brazilian National Congress in December 2005 has also been taken into consideration in this discussion. In view of the positions adopted as a result of the hearing, this paper seeks to identify the ethical problems and moral dilemmas relating to the subject, by putting them into context and analyzing them in the light of respect for cultural pluralism. Seeking to contribute to the debate, the authors analyze the possibilities for intervention in the traditional practices of infanticide, while rejecting those positions that are not anchored in an attitude of profound respect for other people's cultures or that do not create conditions for dialogue between individuals or groups with different moralities.O artigo analisa a prática do infanticídio em comunidades indígenas brasileiras.

    capital accumulation, usage and conversion, with special attention to social and economic capital. The question becomes: How do local entrepreneurs transform social capital into economic capital? We find that social capital is the ‘master capital’, which gives access to the other forms of capital......, including economic capital. Theoretically, we apply a simple Prisoner’s Dilemma model on four different cases. This in order to explain why one entrepreneur succeeds in capitalizing social capital by establishing profitable win-win cooperation with other local and regional entrepreneurs, and why others don’t.......In economic sociology, Bourdieu’s neo-capital theory (Bourdieu, 1986) has regularly been applied by sociologists, who reject the rational action theory (Anheier et al., 1995). However, we claim that Bourdieu’s key finding that forms of tangible and intangible capital (e.g. physical, economic...

  16. Energy use in Denmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper reviews the evolution of energy use in Denmark since the early 1970s, in order to shed light on the future path of energy use in Denmark, with particular emphasis on the role of energy efficiency. Improvements in end-use energy efficiency reduced primary energy requirements in Denmark by 22% between 1972 and 1988. This change accounts for two thirds of the decline in the ratio of energy use to gross domestic product that occurred during this time: the rest of the decline was caused by changes in the mix of goods and services produced and consumed by the Danes. Total energy savings achieved between 1972 and 1988 in Denmark ranked among the highest measured in any major OECD country. Overall, most of the energy savings in Denmark were brought about through improvements in technology. Short-term changes in consumer behaviour were significant in reducing energy needs for space heating and transport. An important stimulus for improved efficiency was higher energy prices, led in no small part by significant taxes imposed on small consumers of heating oil, electricity and motor fuels.

  17. Integration of bottom-up and top-down models for the energy system. A practical case for Denmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The main objective of the project was to integrate the Danish macro economic model ADAM with elements from the energy simulation model BRUS, developed at Risoe. The project has been carried out by Risoe National Laboratory with assistance from the Ministry of Finance. A theoretical part focuses on the differences between top-down and bottom-up modelling of the energy-economy interaction. A combined hybrid model seems a relevant alternative to the two traditional approaches. The hybrid model developed is called Hybris and includes models for: supply of electricity and heat, household demand for electricity, and household demand for heat. These three models interact in a iterative procedure with the macro economic model ADAM through a number of links. A reference case as well as a number of scenarios illustrating the capabilities of the model has been set up.Hybris is a simulation model which is capable of analyzing combined CO2 reduction initiatives as regulation of the energy supply system and a CO2 tax in an integrated and consistent way.

    into decline, in fact flourished. Key to the success of Danish agriculture was an early diversification towards dairy production. We dispute this simple story which sees Denmark as something of a liberal paragon. Denmark's success owed much to a prudent use of trade policy which favoured dairy production....... Moreover, this favouritism continued even after a more general movement to free trade in the 1860s. Using micro-level data from individual dairies, we quantify the implied subsidy to dairy production from the tariffs, and demonstrate that this in many cases ensured the profitability of individual dairies....

    Full Text Available O presente artigo parte do problema do cálculo de custos em indústrias de produção conjunta. Observa-se que a abordagem tradicional adotada para tratar o tema, o método do custo conjunto, apresenta limitações no que tange ao modelo adotado e aos resultados obtidos em termos da análise da lucratividade dos diferentes produtos finais. Como forma de tratar o problema apresenta-se uma abordagem alternativa baseada na Teoria das Restrições suportada por técnicas de Pesquisa Operacional. Visando mostrar as diferenças dos resultados na utilização dos dois métodos, é realizado um estudo de caso em uma unidade de abate e industrialização de aves. Os resultados obtidos, em termos da lucratividade global da operação, apresentam diferenças significativas. A abordagem da Teoria das Restrições aplicada com base na utilização de técnicas de Pesquisa Operacional demonstra-se mais eficaz do prisma da tomada de decisão.This paper discusses the problem related to the costing in joint product industries. Traditional approaches to this subject present limitations regarding the analysis of the individual profitability of each final product. This problem is discussed and an alternative approach based on the Theory of Constraints, and supported by the Operational Research, is proposed. To demonstrate the differences between this new approach and the traditional one, a case study in a poultry company is presented, and the results are discussed.

    2012-12-15

    Denmark has a long tradition of active energy policy, initiated by the first oil crisis in 1973. Over the years, numerous actions have been taken on the basis of a broad consensus in the Danish Parliament - both in order to reduce the energy consumption and in order to increase the share of renewable energy. Now, the cornerstones for the Danish energy future have also been laid. The Danish Government has set the long-term goal to abandon fossil fuels by 2050. An important milestone was reached in March 2012 with an Energy Agreement for the period 2012-2020 - again based on a broad consensus in the Danish Parliament. This Agreement contains a wide range of ambitious initiatives, bringing Denmark a good step closer to the target of 100% renewable energy. In the present publication, a selection of past and present Danish energy policies is presented, together with the results achieved in terms of energy savings, use of renewables etc. (LN)

    Soil organic carbon (SOC) is one of the most important carbon stocks globally and has large potential to affect global climate. Distribution patterns of SOC in Denmark constitute a nation-wide baseline for studies on soil carbon changes (with respect to Kyoto protocol). This paper predicts and maps the geographic distribution of SOC across Denmark using remote sensing (RS), geographic information systems (GISs) and decision-tree modeling (un-pruned and pruned classification trees). Seventeen parameters, i.e. parent material, soil type, landscape type, elevation, slope gradient, slope aspect, mean curvature, plan curvature, profile curvature, flow accumulation, specific catchment area, tangent slope, tangent curvature, steady-state wetness index, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Normalized Difference Wetness Index (NDWI) and Soil Color Index (SCI) were generated to statistically explain SOC field measurements in the area of interest (Denmark). A large number of tree-based classification models (588) were developed using (i) all of the parameters, (ii) all Digital Elevation Model (DEM) parameters only, (iii) the primary DEM parameters only, (iv), the remote sensing (RS) indices only, (v) selected pairs of parameters, (vi) soil type, parent material and landscape type only, and (vii) the parameters having a high impact on SOC distribution in built pruned trees. The best constructed classification tree models (in the number of three) with the lowest misclassification error (ME) and the lowest number of nodes (N) as well are: (i) the tree (T1) combining all of the parameters (ME=29.5%; N=54); (ii) the tree (T2) based on the parent material, soil type and landscape type (ME=31.5%; N=14); and (iii) the tree (T3) constructed using parent material, soil type, landscape type, elevation, tangent slope and SCI (ME=30%; N=39). The produced SOC maps at 1:50,000 cartographic scale using these trees are highly matching with coincidence values equal to 90.5% (Map T1

  10. An econometric analysis of electricity demand response to price changes at the intra-day horizon: The case of manufacturing industry in West Denmark

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Niels Framroze Møller

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The use of renewable energy implies a more variable supply of power. Market efficiency may improve if demand can absorb some of this variability by being more flexible, e.g. by responding quickly to changes in the market price of power. To learn about this, in particular, whether demand responds already within the same day, we suggest an econometric model for hourly consumption- and price time series. This allows for multi-level seasonality and that information about day-ahead prices does not arrive every hour but every 24th hour (as a vector of 24 prices. We confront the model with data from the manufacturing industry of West Denmark (2007-2011. The results clearly suggest a lack of response. The policy implication is that relying exclusively on hourly price response by consumers for integrating volatile renewable electricity production is questionable. Either hourly price variation has to increase considerably or demand response technologies be installed.

    competition state – that is to be realized by fulfilling the ambitions for comprehensive knowledge mobilization through education.1 On the other hand, Denmark is having a hard time finding a broad consensus when what is, in principle, supposed to be a common political will is to be translated into knowledge......Knowledge mobilization is not only a new expression in a Danish context. It is also an interesting concept to introduce and discuss. For doesn’t knowledge mobilization have more – or, at least, as much – to do with politics as with education research or education in itself? Doesn’t modern knowledge...... mobilization have to do with a new political will to mobilize the population by creating a connection between education research and education? On the basis of this report on the Danish efforts with respect to ’knowledge mobilization’, these questions can be answered affirmatively; the extent of knowledge...

    INTRODUCTION: In 2005 the National Board of Health (NBH) published guidelines on bariatric surgery in Denmark. The aim of the present study was to shed light on the national bariatric effort in relation to these guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The analysis is based on extraction of the following......, a tendency which was attributable to the activities of one of the private clinics. CONCLUSION: The frequency with which bariatric surgery is performed follows a strongly increasing trend and the procedures are only performed at the public departments selected by the National Board of Health...... and at the private centres that have entered into an agreement with Danish Regions. Since the operative access and selection of procedures varies between departments we conclude that research should be a firm requirement for all centres, and that research efforts should comprise cooperation concerning the database...

    Though think tanks have a long history internationally, they have especially in recent years come to play an increasingly important role in both policy-formulation and public debate. In this article, we analyse the growing presence of think tanks in a Danish context during the 2000s and the first...... half of the 2010s, because in this national setting think tanks are still a relatively new phenomenon. Based on theories of mediatization and de-corporatization, we present 1) an analysis of the visibility of selected Danish think tanks in the media and 2) an analysis of their political networks...... outside the media. The study shows that the two largest and oldest think tanks in Denmark, the liberal think tank CEPOS and the social democratic think tank ECLM, are very active and observable in the media; that the media’s distribution of attention to these think tanks, to some extent, confirms a re...

    Full Text Available O escopo deste trabalho consiste em promover uma discussão sobre os mecanismos de coordenação das relações interorganizacionais - poder e cooperação - na cadeia de suprimentos da indústria da construção civil. O poder, como um construto de relações interorganizacionais, tem recebido um tratamento irregular e conflitante por parte dos analistas. No entanto, esta abordagem ignora relações existentes que são muito apropriadas para certos contextos do relacionamento interfirmas. Logo, foi desenvolvido um estudo de caso em um elo da indústria da construção civil com o intuito de identificar suas relações como sendo baseadas em dominação ou cooperação. São analisadas, ainda, as implicações dos resultados da pesquisa na gestão da cadeia de suprimentos da construção civil.The article discusses the relationship in the supplier chain in the civil construction industry. The main objective is to define if it is a cooperative relation among the intervenients or if the most powerful dictates the rules. Power as an interorganizational construct has been observed by analysts with an irregular and conflictive point of view. However, these analysts ignore completely existing relationships that are very appropriate in some existing relationships among enterprises. Due to that, it was verified het type of relationship developed by two intervenients in one step of the supply chain of a civil construction company to determine if it is cooperative or if, otherwise, the main actor uses its power to lead the chain. The researchers also analyze what are the implications of this study in the civil construction industry's supply management.

  4. Recharge Rates to Deep Aquifer Layers Estimated with 39Ar, 85Kr and 14C Data: A Case Study in Odense (Denmark)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The increasing pressure on groundwater resources due to overexploitation, contamination and also due to the effects of climate change leads to an increasing need and interest to investigate the recharge and flow dynamics of pre-modern groundwater (>50 a old). Knowledge about turnover times and groundwater age is crucial e.g. in vulnerability assessment studies as shallow and young groundwater is more susceptible to environmental changes than deeper and generally older groundwater. The presence and age of young water can be determined by a series of transient tracers (e.g. 3H/3He, CFC's, SF6, etc). However, with the need to exploit deeper unpolluted resources a tracer on timescales of hundreds of years is required. 39Ar (T1/2: 269 a), 85Kr (T1/2: 10.8 a) and 14C (T1/2: 5730 a) results from 35 wells around the city of Odense (Denmark) are presented. The determined age spectra range from a few years to several hundreds of years. Based on the space-depth distribution of age gradients, renewal/recharge rates to the deep aquifer layers have been estimated. The comparison of 39Ar and 14C activities reveals a remarkably good correlation but with a distinct difference in age scale suggesting mixing due to broad age distributions and activity shifts due to rock-water interaction.

    Full Text Available A pesar de las reiteradas manifestaciones y instrucciones al respecto del valor de las lenguas indígenas y sobre la importancia de la enseñanza en lengua materna, sea en documentos oficiales del gobierno brasileño, sea en artículos, declaraciones y propuestas firmadas por maestros indígenas o por pesquisadores no indígenas, el hecho es que en la mayor parte de los programas educacionales en comunidades indígenas de Brasil el espacio destinado a la lengua autóctona es muy semejante a lo que acostumbramos encontrar para una lengua extranjera en la escuela nacional. Como a menudo los maestros indígenas demuestran tener convicción en la necesidad de valorizar y fortalecer sus lenguas propias, y son - ellos mismos - hablantes nativos de sus lenguas, las preguntas que se plantean son: ¿Por cuales razones las escuelas indígenas siguen restringiendo el espacio de la lengua autóctona? ¿Es posible que los maestros indígenas de hecho estén creyentes de las potencialidades y en el futuro de su lengua materna? Y, por fin, ¿Serán las presiones de la burocracia o de maestros no-indígenas en la escuela indígena lo que impide la experimentación de programas auténticamente bilingües?.Despite the repeated demonstrations and instructions about the value of indigenous languages and the importance of education in mother tongue, whether in official documents of the Brazilian government, whether in articles, statements and proposals signed by indigenous teachers or non-indigenous researchers, the fact is that in the most educational programs in indigenous communities in Brazil the space for the native language is very similar to that usually found for a foreign language in the national school. As indigenous teachers often prove to have belief in the need to value and strengthen their own languages, and are - themselves - native speakers of that, the questions that arise are: Why reasons indigenous schools continue to restrict the space of the

    Full Text Available Nos últimos anos o debate sobre desenvolvimento do espaço rural recebeu significativas contribuições que apontam para a crescente importância das atividades rurais não-agrícolas em relação às atividades agrícolas, para os estabelecimentos da agricultura brasileira, em particular, a chamada agricultura familiar. Com o objetivo de contribuir para este debate analisamos as informações disponíveis relativas à chamada indústria rural artesanal, uma atividade rural nãoagrícola. Este estudo pioneiro mostrou, entre outros fatos: que as atividades relacionadas à indústria rural artesanal são importantes para o abastecimento do mercado interno no que tange a muitos produtos; que estão fortemente presentes nas unidades de produção agrícolas, particularmente naquelas de base familiar; que a contribuição média destas atividades para a geração de emprego e receita monetária é significativamente superior àquela proporcionada pelos produtos da agricultura tradicional. Estes fatos indicam que o fomento de atividades relacionadas à indústria rural artesanal pode ter importante contribuição no desenvolvimento do espaço rural brasileiro.

    Full Text Available The paper introduces an overview of the state of art of social pedagogy in Denmark. In the first section, it deals with the importation from Germany of the concept, the process of reception (e.g. translation and transfer and the original Danish amendments to the original concept. Despite these amendments, social pedagogy was and still remains a practice, thereby appealing to practitioners. Section two of the paper points out how social pedagogy is under-theorized and emphasizes the lack of theoretical work and research linked to social pedagogy. In the third section, the process of professionalization is presented and discussed. Eventually, in the fourth and last section, the current state and future of social pedagogy are concluded and put into perspective.The paper builds on use of the approach of descriptive analysis with respect to existing historical accounts and theoretical and research-based expositions, including broadly received textbooks.   The findings of the analyses point out a continuous lack of theoretical work alongside an increased interest in researching pedagogical practices. The results further stress the significance of external demands on the professionals on the cost of the principles of Act on Social Services aiming at efficiency and employability.Throughout the paper a thread of discussion is maintained.

    Wind-speed data from four sites in Denmark have been analyzed in order to obtain estimates of the basic wind velocity which is defined as the 50-year wind speed under standard conditions, i.e. ten-minute averages at the height 10 m over a uniform terrain with the roughness length 0.05 m. The sites are, from west, Skjern (15 years), Kegnaes (7 years), Sprogoe (20 years), and Tystofte (15 years). The data are ten minute averages of wind speed, wind direction, temperature and pressure. The last two quantities are used to determine the air density {rho}. The data are cleaned for terrain effects by means of a slightly modified WASP technique where the sector speed-up factors and roughness lengths are linearly smoothed with a direction resolution of one degree. Assuming geotropic balance, all the wind-velocity data are transformed to friction velocity u{sub *} and direction at standard conditions by means of the geotropic drag law for neutral stratification. The basic wind velocity in 30 deg. sectors are obtained through ranking of the largest values of the friction velocity pressure 1/2{rho}u{sub *}{sup 2} taken both one every two months and once every year. The main conclusion is that the basic wind velocity is significantly larger at Skjern, close to the west coast of Jutland, than at any of the other sites. Irrespective of direction, the present standard estimates of 50-year wind are 25 {+-} 1 m/s at Skern and 22 {+-} 1 m/s at the other three sites. These results are in agreement with those obtained by Jensen and Franck (1970) and Abild (1994) and supports the conclusion that the wind climate at the west coast of Jutland is more extreme than in any other part of the country. Simple procedures to translate in a particular direction sector the standard basic wind velocity to conditions with a different roughness length and height are presented. It is shown that a simple scheme makes it possible to calculate the total 50-year extreme load on a general structure without

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta um estudo de caso de um processo de melhoria aplicado a uma indústria de remanufatura de cartuchos de toner. Inicialmente, é feita uma abordagem do processo de remanufatura procurando salientar as principais características que o diferenciam de um processo de manufatura convencional e a importância do mesmo diante das preocupações ambientais atuais. Através de três indicadores de desempenho propostos no trabalho fez-se um diagnóstico do processo de remanufatura quanto ao aproveitamento de peças recolhidas do campo, atendimento de pedidos dos clientes e quantidade de defeitos. No diagnóstico inicial realizado, os valores obtidos para esses critérios situaram-se abaixo das metas estabelecidas na empresa. Através da metodologia PDCA, identificaram-se oportunidades de melhorias em pontos críticos do processo de fabricação. A implantação dessas melhorias resultou em ganhos nos indicadores de desempenho da ordem de 12%. Algumas ferramentas clássicas foram utilizadas para auxiliar na implementação da metodologia PDCA destacando-se brainstorming, diagrama de Ishikawa e Controle Estatístico de Processo.This paper presents an improvement process applied in one remanufacturing toner cartridge industry.

    Full Text Available O pré-desenvolvimento engloba as primeiras etapas do processo de desenvolvimento de novos produtos, nas quais as decisões são mais estratégicas e tomadas, geralmente, com alto grau de incerteza. O objetivo é analisar e discutir as práticas de gestão do pré-desenvolvimento em um conjunto de empresas de pequeno e médio portes da indústria de equipamentos médico-hospitalares. A análise é baseada num modelo conceitual, desenvolvido a partir da revisão bibliográfica, composto por cinco dimensões de gestão: orientação estratégica; processo; organização; avaliação; e ferramentas. A pesquisa de campo indica que as empresas estudadas apresentam deficiências na adoção e estruturação de boas práticas de gestão do pré-desenvolvimento. O modelo conceitual proposto serve de base para análise, estruturação e melhoria das atividades e do desempenho do pré-desenvolvimento.The fuzzy front end encompasses the first stages of new product development process. In that phase and period, the decisions are more strategic and are usually made with a high degree of uncertainty. This article aims to analyze and discuss the fuzzy front end management practices in small and medium medical device companies. The analysis is based on a conceptual model that was developed from the literature review and it consists of five dimensions of management: strategic orientation, process, organization, evaluation and tools. The results provide evidence that the studied companies have deficiencies in the adoption of best practices for managing the fuzzy front end, and the conceptual model suggested could serve as a basis for analysis, structuring and improving the fuzzy front end activities and performance.

    To identify risk factors for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in Danish patients consulting general practice with gastrointestinal symptoms, a prospective matched case-control study was performed; cases (N = 259) had positive cultures for toxigenic C. difficile and controls (N = 455) negative cultures. Data were analysed by conditional logistic regression. In patients aged ⩾2 years (138 cases), hospitalization [odds ratio (OR) 8·4, 95% confidence interval (CI) 3·1-23], consumption of beef (OR 5·5, 95% CI 2·0-15), phenoxymethylpenicillin (OR 15, 95% CI 2·7-82), dicloxacillin (OR 27, 95% CI 3·6-211), and extended spectrum penicillins (OR 9·2, 95% CI 1·9-45) were associated with CDI. In patients aged <2 years none of these were associated with CDI, but in a subgroup analysis contact with animals was associated with CDI (OR 8·1, 95% CI 1·0-64). This study emphasizes narrow-spectrum penicillins, and suggests beef consumption, as risk factors for CDI in adults, and indicates a different epidemiology of CDI in infants. PMID:24073613

The chapter is based on an empirical study within the Danish project management community and beyond where we discuss this rethinking process....... The chapter argues for a rethinking process due to pervasiveness and complexity in the contemporary project environment where rethinking is needed in order to stay competitive. The suggested approach for the rethinking project management is a framing process where body of ideas is established......Projects are everywhere across different sectors, industries and countries. Project management is no longer a sub-discipline of engineering and other rather technical disciplines but is also used for many other purposes. Even though practice has changed dramatically over the years, the models...

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta e discute um estudo de caso sobre medição de desempenho ambiental (MDA baseada em um método multicriterial de apoio à decisão, o AHP. A medição foi feita em uma operação de manufatura da indústria automotiva, cujo Sistema de Gestão Ambiental (SGA é certificado conforme a norma ISO 14001:2004. A metodologia foi desenvolvida de forma a viabilizar a sua extensão a outras indústrias ou tipos de operação. O artigo inicia apresentando uma discussão sobre desempenho empresarial e ambiental, justificando a necessidade de um índice para medir e comunicar este desempenho. Cita-se o método multicriterial usado e, a seguir, propõe-se a metodologia de medição, na qual se formulam construtos de sustentação do índice, calculam-se importâncias relativas dos construtos e especificam-se os indicadores. O índice foi calculado para o desempenho atual, chegando-se a um desempenho ambiental próximo a 85% do máximo possível. Os construtos empregados na medição são: resíduos sólidos; efluentes; emissões atmosféricas; uso de recursos naturais; e gestão ambiental. As principais oportunidades de melhoria ambiental são reduções no uso de recursos naturais e em emiss��es atmosféricas.This paper presents and discusses a case concerning environmental performance measurement (MDA, in which a multicriterial approach, the AHP, was used.

A indústria automobilística é um exemplo marcante de uma indústria na qual as relações entre as empresas têm se renovado profundamente, motivadas principalmente pela influência das montadoras nos fornecedores primários, que por sua vez atuam junto a seus próprios fornecedores, formando uma aliança competitiva a partir das visões de negócio das montadoras. Este artigo tem como objetivo estudar as relações entre montadoras e fornecedores do parque industrial automobilístico brasileiro, por meio de estudos de caso, com a finalidade de se constatar a possibilidade de haver uma tendência à formação de uma nova tipologia relacional entre esses atores. Foram realizadas visitas técnicas em 14 empresas fornecedoras de montadoras, para levantamento de informações acerca das principais características estruturais e da relação entre montadora e fornecedor na indústria automobilística brasileira. As entrevistas foram realizadas com profissionais em nível gerencial ou de diretoria das áreas de produção, logística e suprimentos, desenvolvimento de produto e processo, compras e recursos humanos. Os resultados obtidos revelaram que as relações dependem de características institucionais do fornecedor, da complexidade da tecnologia dos componentes, da capacidade produtiva e da história das relações entre cliente e fornecedor. Foi possível concluir também que as relações entre cliente e fornecedor nas empresas pesquisadas estão mais próximas das características de um modelo associativo, com relações contratuais de longo prazo e grande interdependência, mas o preço ainda é utilizado como o principal critério ganhador de pedido na seleção de fornecedores pelas montadoras.New forms of relationship and transaction between

    In September 2011, a patient cluster with a rare Salmonella serotype - Strathcona - was identified in Denmark. An outbreak investigation was initiated to reveal the source in order to stop the outbreak. In addition to hypothesis-generating interviews, comparable analyses of patients' household shopping receipts were conducted. A matched case-control study with 25 cases and 56 population register controls was conducted to test the findings of the hypothesis-generating investigation. In total, 43 cases of Salmonella Strathcona were reported in Denmark. Additionally, 28 cases were reported from Germany, Italy, Austria and Belgium. The results of the investigation in Denmark showed that 8/10 cases had bought datterino tomatoes prior to disease onset. Illness was associated with a specific supermarket chain [matched odds ratio (mOR) 16·9, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2·2-130], and having consumed elongated small tomatoes (OR 28·1, 95% CI 2·6-302). Traceback investigation showed that the tomatoes came from an Italian producer. This outbreak, linked to tomatoes, underpins the growing recognition of the broad source range of Salmonella and the ability of fresh produce to cause multi-country outbreaks. It is important to strengthen the international cooperation between public-health and food-safety authorities in the European Union to investigate future multi-country outbreaks in order to prevent illness from ready-to-eat produce.

    . In order to better understand food waste and loss more research must be conducted on the total amount of food waste at every level of the food supply chain. Solutions can be found through improved communication, more efficient food packaging, and better in interpretation of food labels by consumers......Global food demand is driven by population and economic growth, and urbanization. One important instrument to meet this increasing demand and to decrease the pressure on food production is to minimize food losses and food waste. Food waste and loss is a major societal, economic, nutritional...... and environmental challenge.

    Denmark has been one of the leading European Countries in using Biogas for Combined Heat and Power (CHP), since the 1980’ties. However, in the last two decades, the increase has been limited. A new energy policy aimed at increasing the profitability of Biogas was introduced in the spring of 2012....... The analysis here shows that the new agreement will improve the profitability of biogas plants and increase the biogas production although the political ambition of an increase from 4 PJ to 14 PJ by 2020 seems unlikely. The analysis shows that biogas plants can be profitable even if the input is a mix....... Even without an investment subsidy of 30%, the case 2012, is profitable. Financing the biogas plants is a challenge. The interest used of 4.25% requires bank guaranties which in practice can be hard to get. Using a more likely interest of 7-8% reduces the yearly profit to 400.000 €. The socioeconomic...

    Full Text Available El interés por la realidad urbana de los pueblos indígenas -y en específico por la sociedad mapuchey su enorme población residente en Santiago- puede entenderse como un cambio reciente de las políticas indígenas en Chile, es decir, como parte de las transformaciones en discursos y prácticas durante el período postdictatorial y parte de lo que podríamos llamar la generación de una ingeniería indígena estatal. Con un fuerte énfasis en lo rural durante los primeros años, hoy se vislumbran nuevos senderosque recorren las agencias estatales indígenas, nuevas sinuosidades y estrategias donde la visibilización del asentamiento urbano (Censo 1992, Censo 2002, Casen 2006, Casen 2009 ha sido clave en la apropiación de la problemática y el impulso de planes y programas específicos para el sector. Proponemos en este artículo un breve recorrido por las políticas indígenas, para luego desplegar un análisis crítico del multiculturalismo en Chile contextualizado en la realidad latinoamericana. A partir de esto también analizaremos las propuestas para indígenas residentes en ciudades, resumidas en lo que hemos denominado enfoque estatal indígena urbano.

  13. The individual (single patient) IND for inborn errors of metabolism.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dickson, Patricia I; Tolar, Jakub

    2015-01-01

    Under the United States Food and Drug Administration's Expanded Access program, a physician may treat a single patient with an experimental medication under an individual investigational new drug application (iIND). Metabolic geneticists may be among the specialists most likely to be asked to obtain an iIND, because there are many experimental treatments for inborn errors of metabolism which work in animals but suffer delays in translation to the bedside. The iIND has the potential to help bridge that gap, by gathering initial evidence in support of the use of an experimental drug in humans. If done with experimental rigor, the data will be useful, despite being limited to a single patient. However, iINDs may pose risks to drug development if patients are not carefully selected. Whatever their advantages and disadvantages, iIND studies are here to stay. Metabolic specialists should cautiously consider the iIND as a tremendous opportunity for therapeutic experimentation.

  2. Training first responders on Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDDs) and Improvised Nuclear Devices (INDs) events

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: This paper will present an overview of the current training the author is presenting to First Responders (fire-fighters, emergency medical technicians, law enforcement and others) who may encounter either a Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD or Dirty Bomb) or an Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) as a part of their Emergency Response activities. The emphasis of the training is putting the radiological/nuclear material in perspective as compared with other Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) materials such as chemical and/or biological weapon agents. A goal of the training is to help this First Responder Community understand that under almost all conditions, they can perform their primary mission of 'putting out fires', rescuing and treating injured persons, and chasing 'bad guys' even in the presence of relatively large amount of radiological/nuclear contamination. The rare cases of high activity unshielded sources will be reviewed and explained. Current International guidance on dose 'limits' will be discussed. A discussion of the use of Time, Distance and Shielding as well as appropriate Personal Protective Clothing and how it will provide the needed protection while immediate actions take place early in an RDD/IND event, will take place. The use of appropriate radiation detection instrumentation, documented Standard Operating Procedures along with realistic training, drills and exercises are the key to a successful response to an RDD/IND event for this community of critical emergency responders.

La doble inmersión es un modelo de educación bilingüe con una orientación al bilingüismo aditivo, cuya meta es el desarrollo de altos niveles de competencias de bilingüismo y de biliteracidad. Después de un año y me- dio de implementación, los maestros reportaron un aumento de confianza y proficiencia oral de sus estudiantes en ambas lenguas. Las observaciones en el aula confirmaron este enfoque en actividades de lenguaje oral. Con el fin de desarrollar un currículo pertinente a las vidas de sus estudiantes con base en unidades temáticas, los maestros identificaron dos grandes temas: cultura e identidad y el cuidado comunitario del medio ambiente. Se propone que el proyecto de doble inmersión en Guerrero tenga el potencial de informar el desarrollo de esta clase de programas en otros lugares del país y en Estados Unidos en las áreas inclusión cultural y participación social de la comunidad.

    Full Text Available O artigo analisa a dinâmica demográfica dos Kayabí, povo de língua Tupi, do Parque Indígena do Xingu, Brasil Central, no período 1970-2007, com base em informações do registro de eventos vitais do Programa de Saúde da Universidade Federal de São Paulo no Xingu. O contato dos Kayabí com a sociedade nacional, na região do Alto rio Teles Pires, entre 1920 e 1950, deu origem a depopulação das aldeias por confrontos e epidemias de doenças infecto-contagiosas, resultando na emigração paulatina de alguns grupos Kayabí para o Xingu, onde até hoje vivem. Entre 1970 e 2007, a população Kayabí no Xingu cresceu 4,8% ao ano, passando de 204 para 1.162 habitantes. No período 2000-2007, a taxa bruta de natalidade era de 51 nascimentos por mil habitantes, a de fecundidade total de 7,8 filhos por mulher, a taxa bruta de mortalidade de 3,5 óbitos por mil habitantes e a de mortalidade infantil de 17,5 óbitos por mil nascimentos. Na população, 56,2% eram menores de 15 anos de idade. Os resultados mostram que, a exemplo do que vem ocorrendo com outros povos indígenas no Brasil, os Kayabí também estão se recuperando em população.This paper analyzes the demographic dynamics of the Kayabí, a Tupi people in the Xingu Indian Reservation in Central Brazil, from 1970 to 2007. Data were gathered from vital statistics for the Xingu Indian Reservation at the Federal University in São Paulo. Contact with Brazilian national society from 1920 to 1950 in the Upper Teles Pires River Valley led to a population decrease due to clashes and epidemics. In 1952, part of the Kayabí group gradually began migrating to the Xingu, where they still live. In 1970 there were 204 Kayabí in Xingu villages, and by 2007 there were 1,162, representing a 4.8% annual growth rate. For 2000-2007 the crude birth rate was 51 per thousand inhabitants; total fertility rate 7.8 children per women; crude death crude 3.5 per thousand inhabitants; and infant mortality rate

  13. Analyses of demand response in Denmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Due to characteristics of the power system, costs of producing electricity vary considerably over short time intervals. Yet, many consumers do not experience corresponding variations in the price they pay for consuming electricity. The topic of this report is: are consumers willing and able to respond to short-term variations in electricity prices, and if so, what is the social benefit of consumers doing so? Taking Denmark and the Nord Pool market as a case, the report focuses on what is known as short-term consumer flexibility or demand response in the electricity market. With focus on market efficiency, efficient allocation of resources and security of supply, the report describes demand response from a micro-economic perspective and provides empirical observations and case studies. The report aims at evaluating benefits from demand response. However, only elements contributing to an overall value are presented. In addition, the analyses are limited to benefits for society, and costs of obtaining demand response are not considered. (au)

  5. Coordination between primary and secondary healthcare in Denmark and Sweden

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available Introduction: Insights into effective policy strategies for improved coordination of care is needed. In this study we describe and compare the policy strategies chosen in Denmark and Sweden, and discuss them in relation to interorganisational network theory. Policy practice: The policy initiatives to improve collaboration between primary and secondary healthcare in Denmark and Sweden include legislation and agreements aiming at clarifying areas of responsibility and defining requirements, creation of links across organisational boarders. In Denmark many initiatives have been centrally induced, while development of local solutions is more prominent in Sweden. Many Danish initiatives target the administrative level, while in Sweden initiatives are also directed at the operational level. In both countries economic incentives for collaboration are weak or lacking, and use of sanctions as a regulatory mean is limited. Discussion and conclusion: Despite a variety of policy initiatives, lacking or poorly developed structures to support implementation function as barriers for coordination. The two cases illustrate that even in two relatively coherent health systems, with regional management of both the hospital and general practice sector, there are issues to resolve in regard to administrative and operational coordination. The interorganisational network literature can provide useful tools and concepts for interpreting such issues.

    1988-05-01

    A new comprehensive data linkage system for the detailed investigation of occupational cancer has been established in the Danish Cancer Registry, providing employment histories back to 1964. All 382 cases of cancers of the sinonasal cavities diagnosed between 1970 and 1984 and kept on file in this data linkage system were analysed using standardised proportional incidence ratios (SPIR) to screen for industrial high risk areas for these malignancies in Denmark. Excess risks were confirmed among men and women employed in the manufacture of footwear and other leather products and of wooden furniture. No risk significantly above expectancy was observed among wood workers outside the furniture making industry. Excess risks were also seen among men in all areas of basic metal industries (SPIR = 184-562) and in a subset of workers in industries producing metal containers (SPIR = 329-600). Most unexpected were raised risks among employees of both sexes in making cocoa, chocolate, and sugar confectionery (SPIR = 535 for men and 860 for women); these, in combination with the observed risks among female employees in canning and preserving fruits and vegetables (SPIR = 778) and in farming (SPIR = 735) may point to a common aetiology. The obscuring effect of mass significance may, however, be another explanation. The new associations discovered in this large scale linkage study must therefore await further confirmation.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo aborda a questão da baixa utilização de modelos analíticos nos processos de decisão em planejamento da produção e estoques nas empresas. Para identificar as possíveis razões deste fato, foi realizado um estudo de caso em empresas da Indústria Farmacêutica Brasileira, por meio de visitas e entrevistas com os responsáveis pelo planejamento da produção. As empresas consideradas são multinacionais de grande porte, localizadas na região metropolitana de São Paulo. A partir dos resultados das pesquisas de campo e bibliográfica, verificou-se que a complexidade matemática e a falta de experiência dos profissionais com o desenvolvimento e implantação de modelos analíticos são os principais fatores que explicam a baixa utilização destes modelos nas empresas. Finalmente, os autores propõem algumas ações referentes a: i formação profissional; ii parcerias com empresas de tecnologia de informação; iii pesquisa acadêmica na área de planejamento da produção e estoques.In this paper the reader will find a descriptive research, which aims to identify the reasons why people don't use operations research models in the production and inventory management. A case study is conducted in the Brazilian Pharmaceutical Industry by means of personal interviews with the operations managers of some sampled multinational companies. The results of the field research and the literature review show that both the complexity and the lack of experience with the operations research approach prevent the development and use of decision support systems based on more sophisticated models. Finally, in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the production and inventory management field, the authors suggest several actions in the following key areas: i the professional education; ii the partnership between academics and the IT companies; iii the academic research in the field of production and inventory management.

    Full Text Available Uma das práticas utilizadas pelas empresas, visando o aumento da produtividade, qualidade e diminuição do lead time do desenvolvimento de produto, é a inclusão dos fornecedores neste processo. Apesar de já demonstrado que esta participação tem impactos importantes no processo de desenvolvimento, ainda existe pouca compreensão sobre seus reais efeitos no desempenho deste processo, principalmente quanto aos efeitos na qualidade do projeto do produto. Analisa-se, sob a ótica do fornecedor, as variáveis escopo e integração, em dois casos específicos deste tipo de colaboração na indústria automobilística brasileira. Para cada caso, analisa-se essas variáveis em projetos de desenvolvimento conjunto entre a empresa de autopeça e seus clientes-montadoras e discute-se a relação destas variáveis com a qualidade do projeto do produto. Como resultados principais, válidos para os casos analisados, tem-se que: os mecanismos formais da colaboração cliente-fornecedor no desenvolvimento de produto foram homogêneos, entre cada autopeça e seus clientes-montadoras; e o aumento do escopo afetou positivamente a qualidade do projeto do produto.One of the current practices used by businesses, regarding increased productivity, quality and the reduction of product development lead time, is the involvement of suppliers. There are strong indications that this participation increases productivity and reduces both the development lead time and the possibility of delays in the project, and facilitates the incorporation of new technologies. One of the most conflicting points is how great the effect is in terms of quality of the product design. To evaluate this two case studies in automotive suppliers were conducted. In each one, the variables of integration and scope in development projects were compared between the company which produces specific auto parts and four of its clients which assemble vehicles, evaluating their influence on the quality

    Full Text Available En el mundo global se construyen las bases legales para el reconocimiento de la importancia de los patrimonios culturales y su conservación a través de la participación activa de sus comunidades. El trabajo tiene por objetivo hacer una reflexión del marco jurídico venezolano que ha dado la oportunidad a las comunidades locales, en particular a los pueblos indígenas, de participar en la toma de decisiones sobre el reconocimiento, reestructuración y conservación de su patrimonio cultural. Desde una perspectiva antropológica se hace una lectura del marco jurídicopolítico que protege los derechos patrimoniales indígenas con miras a describir e interpretar las respuestas de las comunidades. Para el análisis se toma como referente la legislación venezolana a partir de 1999 y las comunidades indígenas wayuu del estado Zulia. Se concluye que es esencial que los pueblos indígenas en su interrelación institucional con el Estado construyan y apliquen las medidas de protección de su patrimonio cultural, teniendo en cuenta las oportunidades económicas y las opciones ecológicas disponibles en las diferentes áreas donde habitan

  7. Using IND-CVA for constructing secure communication

    HU ZhenYu; JIANG JianChun; SUN FuChun

    2009-01-01

    Within the framework of UC (universally composable) security, a general method is presented to con-struct a secure channel protocol with using IND-CVA (indistinguishability of encryption scheme under ciphertext verification attacks). A channel protocol with using the method first invokes an ideal key-exchange protocol to get a session key, and then computes the messages with an authenticated en-cryption scheme. The paper shows that a channel protocol is UC secure if and only if the underlying authenticated encryption scheme is both IND-CVA secure and INT-PTXT secure. The condition about secure channel protocol in this paper is much weaker than IND-CCA secure and INT-CTXT secure. The IND-CVA can be presented for describing the privacy requirements of secure channels in detail. More-over, the method for designing secure channel protocol in the paper reduces the UC security of secure channels, which are measured by action-simulation in the UC security framework, to the security of authenticated encryption schemes, which are measured semantically.

  8. National construction, Denmark. Flat roofs

    1995-04-01

    The Paris meeting of IEA Annex 24 (held in the spring of 1991) declared a set of typical building constructions, the Heat, Air and Moisture characteristics of which should be dealt with as part of the Annex work. Each type of construction was assigned to one or more countries as their National Construction, and it has been the responsibility of each country to prepare a report on what may be regarded as common knowledge in the country on the hygrothermal behaviour of their construction. This knowledge is in part due to experimental work carried out by research bodies in the countries, and due to experience form practice. This report has two main sections: Section 2 gives a general overview of the design of the most common variants of flat roofs and common knowledge reported for such roofs. Section 3 gives an account of research projects carried out in Denmark on flat roofs to analyze their hygrothermal performance. Whenever possible, an emphasis will be put on the hygrothermal consequences of thermally insulating such constructions. (EG) 19 refs.

  9. Spatial emission modelling for residential wood combustion in Denmark

    Science.gov (United States)

    Plejdrup, Marlene S.; Nielsen, Ole-Kenneth; Brandt, Jørgen

    2016-11-01

    Residential wood combustion (RWC) is a major contributor to atmospheric pollution especially for particulate matter. Air pollution has significant impact on human health, and it is therefore important to know the human exposure. For this purpose, it is necessary with a detailed high resolution spatial distribution of emissions. In previous studies as well as in the model previously used in Denmark, the spatial resolution is limited, e.g. municipality or county level. Further, in many cases models are mainly relying on population density data as the spatial proxy for distributing the emissions. This paper describes the new Danish model for high resolution spatial distribution of emissions from RWC to air. The new spatial emission model is based on information regarding building type, and primary and supplementary heating installations from the Danish Building and Dwelling Register (BBR), which holds detailed data for all buildings in Denmark. The new model provides a much more accurate distribution of emissions than the previous model used in Denmark, as the resolution has been increased from municipality level to a 1 km × 1 km resolution, and the distribution key has been significantly improved so that it no longer puts an excessive weight on population density. The new model has been verified for the city of Copenhagen, where emissions estimated using both the previous and the new model have been compared to the emissions estimated in a case study. This comparison shows that the new model with the developed weighting factors (76 ton PM2.5) is in good agreement with the case study (95 ton PM2.5), and that the new model has improved the spatial emission distribution significantly compared to the previous model (284 ton PM2.5). Additionally, a sensitivity analysis was done to illustrate the impact of the weighting factors on the result, showing that the new model independently of the weighting factors chosen produce a more accurate result than the old model.

    Full Text Available In this paper I use the concepts “understanding of science” and “appreciation of science” to analyze selected case studies of current science communication in Denmark. The Danish science communication system has many similarities with science communication in other countries: the increasing political and scientific interest in science communication, the co-existence of many different kinds of science communication, and the multiple uses of the concepts of understanding vs. appreciation of science. I stress the international aspects of science communication, the national politico-scientific context as well as more local contexts as equally important conditions for understanding current Danish science communication.

    This paper estimates labour supply for married and single men and women in Denmark in 1990, using a double-hurdle model which allows involuntary unemployment due to for example demand restrictions, and fixed costs of work. A labour supply f unction based on a variant of the Stone-Geary utility...... function with a nonlinear wage rate is estimated. Elasticities of labour supply with respect to wage, income and tax rate are presented. Finally, the effects on the four groups of a few recently discussed tax and transfer reforms in Denmark are simulated....

    By the mid-l980s, Denmark had a serious waste disposal problem: Its per capita generation of waste was among the highest in Europe and rising; it was running out of landfill space, with Copenhagen set to exhaust its landfill capacity in a short time; and there was a great deal of concern about air...... pollution from incinerators. Denmark responded to this situation by adopting a comprehensive waste management policy that included an innovative tax on waste designed to promote the reuse and recycling of many types of waste. Now that the tax has been in place for a decade, there is enough data to assess...

    Full Text Available L'Inde, à la faveur de la croissance économique qu'elle a connue au cours de la dernière décennie, a accumulé plusieurs des attributs de la puissance (notamment une certaine force de frappe militaire qui se sont ajoutés à ses atouts traditionnels (notamment le rayonnement de sa culture et le soft power qu'elle retire de son statut démocratique. Mais cette puissance nouvelle est en quête de sens. Un paradoxe si l’on se rappelle que l'Inde de Nehru avait un message pour le monde au moment où elle n'avait pas les moyens d'agir sur lui ; si ces moyens existent davantage aujourd'hui, le pays est passé de la Moralpolitik à une Realpolitik sans contenu clair. A cette évolution s'ajoute la tension qui travaille sa politique étrangère entre un souverainisme hérité du tiers-mondisme que New Delhi réinvestit dans son partenariat avec les BRICS et un tropisme pro-américain que promeuvent sa diaspora et ses milieux d'affaires. Tiraillée entre plusieurs tentations, l'Inde se réfugie souvent dans l'abstention au sein des instances multilatérales.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo analisa as características e objetivos das associações de interesse privado (AIP, destacando o papel coordenador deste tipo de organização no sentido de buscar criar e defender margens para seus associados. São destacadas as mudanças no papel do Estado e das empresas e, como decorrência, a necessidade de repensar a estrutura e a própria missão das associações, visando sua adequação a um novo ambiente institucional. Outro aspecto central relaciona-se com os mecanismos de governança em associações de interesse privado. O artigo destaca desafios no alinhamento de interesses entre os componentes das associações. A dificuldade em avaliar a eficiência dos gestores é devida à falta de informações claras e de conhecimento específico, já que a avaliação dos resultados é em grande parte intangível e são raros os indicadores que possibilitam a comparação com outras organizações. As associações de interesse privado possuem características idiossincráticas, sendo difícil a parametrização de indicadores de eficiência, em razão das especificidades próprias de cada organização. O trabalho destaca um estudo de caso de uma associação ligada ao sistema agroindustrial brasileiro, a Associação Brasileira das Indústrias de Massas Alimentícias (ABIMA, analisando um processo de gestão estratégica implementado na organização com o objetivo de um alinhamento de interesses em torno de um conjunto específico de projetos estratégicos priorizados.Characteristics and objectives of Private Interest Associations, PIA, were analyzed to highlight their coordination in creating and defending actions of benefit to associates.

    Full Text Available Due to the increasing pressure for companies to become more accountable and transparent regarding their actions, the stakeholders have been provided with information beyond the scope of company's financial performance including evidence of good corporate governance, source of raw material, the manufacturing process, and life cycle of the products. Business leaders have recognized the need to respond to these pressures by conducting operations focusing on the business success and meeting stakeholders' demands. Accordingly, in this study, a model for assessment of corporate sustainability was constructed considering the company's need to seek business longevity. Therefore, a case study was carried out in a medium sized textile industry in Paraná state adopting the Multicriteria Methodology for Decision Aid - Constructivist as the intervention tool. This methodology was chosen because it makes it possible to identify a set of performance indicators that characterize the company sustainability and to measure the organization properties and its commitment to sustainability, both individually and globally. The model identified that the company's strategy should include all the criteria of the economic, social, and environmental areas demonstrating that the differences between the replacement rates are strictly small. Furthermore, the model revealed that the actions of communication with the stakeholders are of great importance and that a lot of effort is needed in terms of awareness of employees, suppliers, customers, consumers, and the community of sustainability issues.Devido à crescente pressão para que as empresas sejam mais responsáveis e transparentes em suas ações, os stakeholders estão sendo atendidos em suas demandas por informações que vão além do desempenho financeiro da empresa, como evidências de uma boa governança corporativa, origem da matéria-prima, modo de fabricação e ciclo de vida dos produtos.

  5. Climate change and agriculture in Denmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This chapter reviews the current knowledge on effects of climate change on agriculture in Denmark, and the contribution of agriculture to greenhouse gas emissions in Denmark. The chapter also considers the possibilities of Danish agriculture to adapt to changing climate and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The relations to other aspects of global change are discussed, including liberalisation of world markets and changes in land use. Scenarios of climate change for Denmark suggest increases in annual mean temperature of 1 to 4 deg. C by the end of the 21st century depending on socioeconomic development. Winter rainfall may increase up to 20%. This implies a wide range of possible consequences. Agricultural productivity may be expected to increase under increasing temperature and increasing CO2 concentration. Highter temperatures will increase the risk of pests and deseases. Warming in association with increased winter rainfall will also increase the risk of nitrate leaching. Climate change may thus be expected to reinforce the current trends in Danish agriculture of declining cattle population and increasing pig and cereal production. Apart from an anticipated continued decline in total agricultural area, land use will probably not be greatly affected. The current environmental regulation in Denmark aims at reducing pesticide use and nitrogen losses from agriculture. Some of the regulations are very detailed and directly regulate farming practices in a manner that may not provide the most cost-effective mechanism under a changed climate. Some of these existing rigid frameworks for environmental regulation should thus be substituted by more flexible goal-oriented environmental protection strategies, in order to ensure sustainability of farming under global climate change.

  7. The market for hospital medicine in Denmark

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gisela Hostenkamp

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available Pharmaceutical expenditure growth has outpaced GDP and healthcare expenditure growth rates in Denmark as in most OECD countries for the last decade. A major part of this increase was due to high growth rates in specialist areas that are typically located in hospital settings. Yet the market for hospital medicines and their procurement are still poorly understood. The present paper characterises the market for hospital medicines in Denmark in terms of its organisation and developments between 2005 and 2009. In Denmark hospital medicines are publicly financed and procurement is centrally organised. 98% of all medicines administered at Danish public hospitals are purchased through a public procurement agency by means of public tenders. Using data on actual contract prices we decompose pharmaceutical expenditure growth into the contributions from newly introduced medicines, price and volume increases and use summary statistics to compare market performance in both sectors. The market for hospital medicine is more concentrated than the pharmaceutical retail sector and the share of generics and parallel imported products is significantly lower. Between 2005 and 2009 expenditures for hospital medicines more than doubled -accounting for almost 40% of the total Danish pharmaceutical market in 2009. Price increases however - although positive and higher than in the pharmaceutical retail sector - were only moderate. The majority of the expenditure growth was due to an increase in utilisation and the introduction of new medicines in the hospital sector. Centralised tendering may therefore have important implications for competition and industry structure in the long run.

    2014-04-01

    This cross-cultural study compared explanations of sleep paralysis (SP) in two countries and two groups with different levels of education in one country. Comparisons were made between individuals having experienced SP at least once in a lifetime from Cairo, Egypt (n = 89), Copenhagen, Denmark (n = 59), and the American University in Cairo, Egypt (n = 44). As hypothesized, participants from the general Egyptian population were more likely to endorse supernatural causal explanation of their SP compared to participants from Denmark; participants from the American University in Cairo were less likely to endorse supernatural causes of their SP compared to participants from the general Egyptian population. Moreover, participants from the American University in Cairo were marginally significantly more likely to endorse supernatural causes of their SP compared to participants from Denmark. Additionally, we explored which culturally bound explanations and beliefs about SP existed in Egypt and Denmark. We found that nearly half (48%) of the participants from the general Egyptian population believed their SP to be caused by the Jinn, a spirit-like creature with roots in Islamic tradition, which constitutes a culturally bound interpretation of the phenomenology of SP in this region of the world. Case studies are presented to illustrate these findings. PMID:24084761

    In this paper, we report on the study Safe in Nature (Tryg i naturen) in which the aim was to analyze and discuss risk and safety related to outdoor recreation in the coastal regions of Denmark. A cultural perspective is applied to risk management and the safety cultures related to three selected...... water-based outdoor activities: small boat fishing, sea kayaking, and kite surfing. The theoretical framework used was cultural analysis and the methodological approach was mixed methods using case studies with survey and qualitative interviews. The study indicates that safety is a complex matter...... and that safety culture can be understood as the sum and interaction among six categories. The safety culture is closely related to the activity and differs widely among activities. We suggest a broad perspective be taken on risk management wherein risk and safety can be managed at different levels. Small boat...

    The article demonstrates that written standards for the basis of liability are playing an ever greater role relative to unwritten standards under tort law. It is noted that following the bank failures in the wake of the financial crisis in 2008, a significant number of cases are proceeding...... in Denmark in which liability for exorbitant sums is being imputed to members of the boeard of directors and management and external and internal accountants. The new Danish companies act in force from 1 March 2010 made no apparent change to the standards concerning liability.

  13. System and market integration of wind power in Denmark

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Lund, Henrik; Hvelplund, Frede; Alberg Østergaard, Poul;

    2013-01-01

    Denmark has more than 10 years’ of experience with a wind share of approximately 20 per cent. During these 10 years, electricity markets have been subject to developments with a key focus on integrating wind power as well as trading electricity with neighbouring countries. This article introduces...... a methodology to analyse and understand the current market integration of wind power and concludes that the majority of Danish wind power in the period 2004e2008 was used to meet the domestic demand. Based on a physical analysis, at least 63 per cent of Danish wind power was used domestically in 2008....... To analyse the remaining 37 per cent, we must apply a market model to identify cause-effect relationships. The Danish case does not illustrate any upper limit for wind power integration, as also illustrated by Danish political targets to integrate 50 per cent by 2020. In recent years, Danish wind power has...

    Residential wood combustion (RWC) is a major contributor to atmospheric pollution especially for particulate matter. Air pollution has significant impact on human health, and it is therefore important to know the human exposure. For this purpose, it is necessary with a detailed high resolution...... spatial distribution of emissions. In previous studies as well as in the model previously used in Denmark, the spatial resolution is limited, e.g. municipality or county level. Further, in many cases models are mainly relying on population density data as the spatial proxy for distributing the emissions.......

    2011-08-01

    Full Text Available IndElec is a software addressed to compute a wide range of indices from electoral data, which are intended to analyze both party systems and electoral systems in political studies. Further, IndElec can calculate such indices from electoral data at several levels of aggregation, even when the acronyms of some political parties change across districts. As the amount of information provided by IndElec may be considerable, this software also aids the user in the analysis of electoral data through three capabilities. First, IndElec automatically elaborates preliminary descriptive statistical reports of computed indices. Second, IndElec saves the computed information into text files in data matrix format, which can be directly loaded by any statistical software to facilitate more sophisticated statistical studies. Third, IndElec provides results in several file formats (text, CSV, HTML, R to facilitate their visualization and management by using a wide range of application softwares (word processors, spreadsheets, web browsers, etc.. Finally, a graphical user interface is provided for IndElec to manage calculation processes, but no visualization facility is available in this environment. In fact, both the inputs and outputs for IndElec are arranged in files with the aforementioned formats.

    In this article we unpack the organizational effects of the valuation practices enacted by nation branding rankings in a contemporary case where the Danish government employed branding-inspired methods. Our main argument is that the use of nation branding was enabled by the Nation Brands Index via...... its efficient translation of fuzzy political goals into understandable numerical objectives. The Nation Brands Index becomes the driving force in a powerful bureaucratic translation of nation branding which in turn has several reordering effects at organizational level. We thus demonstrate how...... the Nation Brands Index permits bureaucratic expansion in central government administration as it continuously maintains and reconstructs problems solvable by the initiation of more nation branding initiatives and projects and hence more bureaucratic activity....

    2014-04-01

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations require sponsors of clinical investigations involving an investigational drug or device to submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application. Strict adherence to applicable regulations is vital to the success of clinical research. Unlike most major pharmaceutical sponsors, investigator sponsors often do not fully appreciate their regulatory obligations nor have resources to ensure compliance. As a result they can place themselves and their institutions at risk. Nevertheless, investigator-initiated clinical trials are vital to the further development of innovative drugs, biologics, and medical devices. The IND/IDE Subcommittee under the Regulatory Knowledge and Support Program at Harvard Catalyst, The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center worked in collaboration with Harvard and Harvard affiliated institutions to create and launch an IND/IDE Consult Service in a decentralized network of collaborating Academic Healthcare Centers (AHC). The IND/IDE Consult Service offers expertise, resources, and shared experiences to assist sponsor-investigators and IRBs in meeting regulatory requirements for conducting and reviewing investigator-initiated IND/IDE studies. The scope of the services provided by the Harvard Catalyst IND/IDE Consult Service are described, including the specifics of the service, lessons learned, and challenges faced, in a scalable model that builds inter-institutional capacity.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do artigo é analisar as transformações observadas nos sistemas indígenas de manejo dos recursos naturais no Alto Rio Negro, Noroeste Amazônico, devido à urbanização intensa e acelerada de algumas localidades e aos processos migratórios ocorridos nas últimas décadas. Nossos dados foram obtidos por meio de pesquisas etnográficas e agroeconômicas, associadas ao Sistema de Informação Geográficas para análise de população, direitos fundiários e paisagens na área periurbana de São Gabriel da Cachoeira, a principal cidade da região. As comunidades indígenas utilizam um território tradicional, onde se articulam diversos tipos de direitos fundiários sobre os recursos naturais, desde o uso individual exclusivo até a propriedade comum. Na região periurbana, a propriedade privada da terra se tornou dominante. No entanto, por causa da escassez crescente dos recursos naturais ao redor da cidade, as famílias migrantes negociam seus direitos fundiários no âmbito de uma rede social extensa, criando assim uma estratégia multilocal. Esta pode ser entendida como manifestação da adaptabilidade dos sistemas tradicionais de manejo dos recursos naturais.We analyse the transformations in indigenous resource management due to urbanization and migratory flows in the Upper Rio Negro, Northwest Amazon. Data were obtained from ethnographic and agro-economic research, combined with a GIS analysis of population, land tenure and landscape distribution in the peri-urban zone of São Gabriel da Cachoeira, the main town of the region. Each indigenous community is associated with a traditional territory, within which are articulated many kinds of resource use rights, ranging from individual exclusive ownership to common property. In the peri-urban area, private ownership has become the main land-use right. Due to the increasing scarcity of available resources around São Gabriel, newly arrived indigenous families have to negotiate land

Alternativas para utilização desses resíduos têm sido alvo de pesquisas, destacando-se a confecção de pequenos objetos, na forma de artesanato. Neste trabalho, objetivou-se avaliar os resíduos de indústrias do pólo moveleiro de Ubá/MG. No levantamento quantitativo, constatou-se que as empresas geraram resíduos dos mesmos tipos de painéis de madeira. Os resíduos mais comuns foram de aglomerado e MDF (Medium Density Fiber. Observou-se grande variabilidade das dimensões desses resíduos, principalmente em sua largura. Concluiu-se que alguns resíduos não apresentaram dimensões adequadas para a confecção de determinados objetos e que se torna necessária uma seleção prévia desses resíduos para direcioná-los a trabalhos mais minuciosos, de forma a viabilizar a sua utilização.The furniture industry generates an amount of residues, which, normally, is discarded in the environment or destined to steam production in boilers. The handmade production of small wood board objects is an outstanding alternative to take advantage of these residues. The general aim of this study was to evaluate residues in furniture industries located at the pole of Ubá/MG. Through the survey and the analysis of the data, one established that the industries generate residues from the same kind of wood board. The most common residues were of particleboard and MDF (Medium Density Fiber. One observed a great diversity of residue dimensions, mainly in width. One concluded that some residues did not present adequate dimensions for the manufacturing of some objects and that there is a necessity of previous residues selection, in order to destine them to more detailed works and make possible their use.

    Ringgaard, Jørgen; Wisén, Roger

    2014-05-01

    Academic work on GPR in Denmark is performed both by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Copenhagen (KU). The work at DTU includes development of antennas and systems, e.g. an airborne ice-sounder GPR system (POLARIS) that today is in frequent use for monitoring of ice thickness in Greenland. DTU often collaborates with ESA (European Space Agency) regarding electromagnetic development projects. At KU there is an ongoing work with GPR applied to water resources. The main objective is to study flux of water and matter across different hydrological domains. There are several recent publications from KU describing research for data analysis and modelling as well as hydro geophysical applications. Also the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) performs frequent geological mapping with GPR. There have been mainly two actors on the Danish commercial market for several years: FalkGeo and Ramboll. Falkgeo has been active for many years acquiring data for several different applications such as archeology, utilities and roads. Their equipment pool comprises both a multichannel Terravision system form GSSI and a 2D system from Mala Geoscience with a comprehensive range of antennas. Ramboll has performed GPR surveys for two decades mainly with 2D systems from GSSI. In recent years Ramboll has also obtained a system with RTA antennas from Mala Geoscience and a multichannel system from 3D-Radar. These systems have opened markets both for deeper geological mapping and for shallow mapping. The geological mapping with the Mala system has often been combined with resistivity imaging (CVES) and refraction seismic. The 3D system has been applied in airports and on road for mapping of layer thicknesses, delamination and for control of asphalt works. Other areas comprise bridge deck evaluation and utility mapping. Ramboll also acts as client advisor for BaneDanmark, a state owned company who operates and develops the Danish state railway network

    The exact prevalence of dementia in Denmark is unknown. Based on epidemiological data we have calculated possible estimates for the present Danish prevalence of dementia and prevalence projections through to 2030. The discrepancy between estimates based on epidemiological studies and the number of dementia diagnoses in registers indicates that dementia may be underdiagnosed. Even though results from recent epidemiological studies point to a possible decline in incidence we expect the future prevalence of dementia to increase due to an expected increase of the elderly population.

Estimates of the mean contents of radiostrontium and radiocesium in the human diet in Denmark during 1986 are given. Tritium was determined in precipitation, ground water, other fresh waters and sea water. The gamma-background was measured regularly by TLD, ionization chamber and on site gamma-spectroscopy at locations around Risoe, at ten of the State experimental farms, along the coasts of the Great Belt and around Gylling Naes. The marine environments at Barsebaeck and Ringhals were monitored for 137Cs and corrosion products (58Co, 60Co, 65Zn, 54Mn). The Chernobyl accident caused a substantial expansion of the environmental monitoring activities in Denmark. The programme was expanded to an extent similar to that in the sixties.

O problema central investigado refere-se a como uma indústria de alta tecnologia, que produz sob encomenda, com um longo leadtime, gera conhecimento, dado o rápido deslocamento das fronteiras tecnológicas. A metodologia foi pautada em pesquisa documental, na aplicação de questionários, para um grupo, e entrevistas não-estruturadas, para outro grupo, escolhidos por amostra não-probabilística. Para a análise, utilizou-se um estudo de caso. Observou-se que as inovações estão limitadas aos conteúdos conhecidos das ciências e suas aplicações, e são fortemente orientadas à melhoria contínua. A indústria é o principal agente das mudanças do setor, apoiada pelo comprometimento da organização humana que promove a adaptação da empresa aos novos requisitos e tendências do ambiente tecnológico e competitivo. Para tanto, a indústria prioriza o desenvolvimento das competências técnicas, mercadológicas e empresariais, por meio da capacitação contínua.This paper aims to contribute to Knowledge Management debate for High Technology Industry, in Brazil. The investigated problem refers to "how can an industry, that manufactures under the customers orders, in a long-term commitment and lead time, generate the state of art knowledge, considering the accelerated moves of the technology boundaries? The methodology techniques were primarily defined in terms of a qualitative approach, based on a historic documentation analysis regarding a single case study. Data collecting was supported by questionnaires, filled by a technical group, and also some non-structured interviews made to another group.

    Denmark has always been known as a country with a strong spatial planning tradition. However, recent changes in the Danish planning system, as a consequence of the structural reform in 2007, raise questions about whether this still is the case. In contrast to many European countries, the Danish...... structural reform weakened (some will argue dismantled) the regional planning level. In an attempt to reinvent the regional planning scale, the Ministry of the Environment proposed a New Map of Denmark consisting of two metropolitan regions in the 2006 national planning report. The Ministry’s attempt...... to prepare spatial strategies for these new regions through cooperative dialogue projects with municipalities have only had limited success, although important discussions on building sustainable urban regions emerged. In addition, recent restructuring of the Ministry of the Environment has led to reduced...

The international literature suggests that intensive harvesting could increase ecological risks to yield, carbon stores......, soil fertility, and biodiversity, but geographically specific knowledge is sparse in many countries, and results do not extend beyond 5–30 years after harvesting. We use Denmark as a case for discussing future directions. Forest history is described, and research on ecological effects...... and their inclusion in governance is reviewed. Denmark was almost completely deforested by the early 1800s, but centuries of afforestation have resulted in a current forest cover of 14.3%. Research commonly uses stem-only harvesting as a reference against which to compare intensive harvesting impacts, but pristine...

    Full Text Available As empresas podem se utilizar de incentivos fiscais proporcionados pelo governo para investimentos em pesquisa, desenvolvimento e inovação. No entanto, poucas são aquelas que se utilizam de tais benefícios. Um dos motivos é o fato de não saberem identificar a inovação. Nesse sentido, o estudo consiste em elaborar um modelo de identificação da inovação para a utilização de incentivos fiscais. A pesquisa quanto aos objetivos foi classificada como descritiva. No que se refere aos procedimentos de coleta de dados utilizou-se o estudo de caso numa indústria de eletroeletrônicos de grande porte, na região sul brasileira. E, com relação à abordagem do problema, trata-se de uma pesquisa qualitativa. O modelo foi desenvolvido com base na Lei 11.1196, de 2005, Lei do Bem, no Manual de Oslo e Literatura sobre a Inovação. Os resultados da pesquisa indicam a validade do modelo proposto, uma vez que foi possível identificar a inovação tecnológica (produto, processo, mercado na empresa estudada para a utilização dos incentivos fiscais da Lei do Bem. Conclui-se que foi possível identificar os diferentes tipos de inovação tecnológica nos projetos de pesquisa, desenvolvimento e inovação na empresa estudada.There are several tax breaks provided by the government for investment in research, development and innovation that companies may benefit. However, there are few companies that use such benefits. One of the reasons is that they can not identify innovation. In this sense, this study aims at developing an innovative model for identifying the use of tax breaks. The research is classified as descriptive. With regard to data collection procedures, it was used the case study of a large electronics industry in the Brazilian southern region. In relation to the approach the problem, it is a qualitative research. The model was developed based on Law 11.1196 (2005, Lei do Bem, the Oslo Manual and Literature on Innovation. The survey

  18. Observations sur l’indéterminabilité

    Full Text Available Pour Aristote, une proposition est vraie si elle correspond à un fait. Pour les Stoïciens, un raisonnement est valide si et seulement s’il est conforme à la forme canonique d’un trope. Mais affirmer cela c’était oublier que la vérité résulte toujours d’un processus de recherche, souvent long et complexe, qui repose sur l’interrogation, le questionnement, bref le dialogue. Alors qu’en logique standard, la proposition excluait toute dimension énonciative pour se réduire à un simple porteur de valeur de vérité, en logique dialogique chaque proposition est véritablement une proposition émanant d’un interlocuteur qui s’engage sur elle par un acte d’assertion. De plus, un tel acte de discours prend place dans un jeu dialogique (dialogspiel entre proposant et opposant. Dès lors, chaque proposition prend sens en fonction de son utilisation opératoire dans le jeu dialogique. On ne pense plus en termes d’axiomes, mais de système opératoire. On a là un développement remarquable du paradigme actionnel inauguré notamment par le Frege des Recherches logiques.Notre intention est donc de démontrer comment en théorie standard des modèles la décision sur la valeur de vérité d’un connecteur ou d’une proposition atomique dans un univers de discours donné reste une décision extra-logique. Dès lors une modélisation adéquate de la dimension dialogique de l’indéterminabilité ou de la véridicité consiste à articuler de façon adéquate validité et vérité, cohérence interne du dialogue et sanction attestée de façon externe. L’indéterminabilité, ainsi que la véridicité, sera le résultat d’un accord dialogique qui suppose au niveau interactionnel que les interlocuteurs reconnaissent leur consistance mutuelle et au niveau transactionnel qu’ils acceptent mutuellement le jugement d’un tiers qui atteste de la vérité des propositions atomiques sur le monde en question.
