    The following report is strictly connected to studies for introducing certain actions useful to effort the problem of urban traffic pollution. Technologies are today available to reduce traffic pollution and it is possible to verify effectiveness during the implementation. On the other hand it is not always possible to verify effectiveness of these measures on the citizen customs and quality of life. Frequently policies aiming to limit environmental risk are viewed by citizens as an insupportable coercion. In the case of urban traffic it is particularly true because the measures in this field are limited to a certain numbers of prohibitions limiting the moving freedom of citizens inside urban areas. This research, realised via a questionnaire on citizens representative of two roman districts, analyses the social acceptability degree of actions for reducing atmospheric pollution produced by automobile traffic in the city of Rome. [Italian] Il lavoro presentato di seguito si inserisce in un filone di studi che tendono a individuare quelle azioni capaci di sciogliere il nodo ormai cruciale dell'inquinamento da traffico nelle aree urbane. Azioni efficaci ne sono state individuate numerose ma, mentre per quanto riguarda le misure tecnologiche l'efficacia intrinseca della misura viene verificata nell'applicazione, non sempre si puo' dire la stessa cosa per quanto riguarda le misure che incidono sulle abitudini di vita dei cittadini. Sempre piu' spesso le politiche tese a limitare i danni ambientali sono vissute dal cittadino come una insopportabile coercizione. Nel caso del traffico urbano cio' e' particolarmente vero proprio perche' le misure di questo settore si limitano spesso a una serie di divieti che oggettivamente limitano la liberta' di movimento del cittadino. I blocchi del traffico, le zone blu, sono gli esempi piu' lampanti di questo tipo di limitazione. Questa ricerca sul campo, svolta tramite questionario e

Qui si guarda alle concordanze anzitutto attraverso l’esperienza di tre filologi del secolo scorso (Barbi, Contini e Avalle, per proporne infine un esame per dir così tecnico, richiamando una categoria in particolare riproposta da Franco Brioschi (l’esemplificazione.

    Full Text Available Negli ultimi venti anni l’attività didattica di scrittura di testi in lingua seconda (L2 e lingua straniera (LS si è arricchita di nuove possibilità. In primo luogo da abilità che può essere appresa e sviluppata dopo l’acquisizione di solide basi linguistiche nella lingua target, la scrittura si è affermata anche come strumento per imparare la lingua utilizzabile fin dalle fasi iniziali dell’apprendimento. In secondo luogo da abilità individuale e introspettiva, la scrittura è oggi considerata un’attività che può essere svolta anche in modo collaborativo, a coppie o in gruppi, cooperando all’ideazione, alla stesura e alla revisione del testo da produrre. Nella prima parte di questo lavoro sono analizzati gli studi sulla scrittura collaborativa presenti nella letteratura scientifica con lo scopo di ottenere un quadro completo e aggiornato delle sue caratteristiche e della sua efficacia, con un’attenzione particolare alle indicazioni utili per l’insegnante che desideri proporre questo tipo di attività. Nella seconda parte del lavoro è presentato uno studio di caso, ossia un’attività di scrittura di un particolare tipo di testo, definito come “descrittivo/espressivo”, svolta a coppie da studenti universitari nell’ambito di un corso intensivo per l’apprendimento dell’italiano L2. L’attività ha preso le mosse dalla descrizione di due immagini-stimolo con differente potere evocativo. Obiettivi della sperimentazione sono stati la verifica dell’efficacia delle immagini come stimolo alla scrittura, della possibilità di scrivere congiuntamente di emozioni e dell’efficacia del testo “descrittivo/espressivo” nella scrittura collaborativa.   Collaborative writing: the state of art of international research and a case study  Debora Bellinzani Over the past twenty years, the teaching of writing texts in a second language (L2 and  a foreign language (LS has been enhanced with new possibilities.

    Obiettivi: alcune abitudini di vita possono influenzare lo sviluppo fetale durante il periodo di gravidanza. Lo scopo di questo studio è stato quello di indagare gli effetti di alcune abitudini voluttuarie sulle nascite premature e sul basso peso alla nascita.

    Metodi: è stato condotto uno studio caso controllo nel periodo ottobre 1999 settembre 2000 in 9 città italiane (Genova, Udine, Modena, Parma, Siena, Roma, L’Aquila, Napoli e Catania. Sono stati identificati come casi 525 neonati pretermine (26ma, 38ma settimana di gravidanza e 317 neonati a termine ma con peso ‹ al 10° P. Sono stati arruolati come controllo 871 bambini nati a termine e normopeso. Le informazioni relative all’esposizione al fumo attivo e passivo e al consumo di caffè e i dati personali sono stati raccolti attraverso un apposito questionario.

    Risultati: dai risultati dell’analisi univariata è emerso un maggior rischio di basso peso alla nascita nei bambini le cui madri avevano fumato durante l’ultimo trimestre di gravidanza, con un chiaro effetto dose risposta. (OR: 2.09, 95% CI:1.45 - 3.00 per 1 9 sigarette/giorno, e OR= 2.76, 95% CI: 1.67 - 4.45 per 10 ed oltre sigarette al giorno.

Nella seconda parte viene introdotta e sviluppata l’analisi linguaggio orale delle guide turistiche a partire da un corpus costituito da diciotto file di trascrizione di registrazioni di visite guidate, in lingua italiana, svolte da guide turistiche straniere all’estero. Dallo studio effettuato è emerso come le scelte linguistiche dell’operatore professionale si declinino in funzione delle esigenze e delle caratteristiche del destinatario: ad un turista desideroso di «vedere», «conoscere» e «identificare» nello spazio ciò di cui si parla, la guida turistica risponde con un ampio impiego del verbo «chiamarsi» e di componenti grammaticali e lessicali (verbi, avverbi e preposizioni di luogo, aggettivi dimostrativi con un forte valore locativo.   Tourist guide italian: a study of the oral language of tourism   Elena Mauri    The object of this article is the oral language of tourist guides, a “special”, hard to find and poorly analyzed type of language production.

    Full Text Available La malattia di Lyme è la più diffusa malattia trasmessa da zecche in Italia. La provincia di Pesaro ed Urbino per le sue caratteristiche ecologiche può essere considerata area rischio per la patologia. Ciò nonostante, non sono ancora disponibili dati di campo per questa area, sebbene la malattia sia presente nei territori limitrofi. Al fine di indagare la presenza del ciclo della borreliosi di Lyme, è stato condotto, nell’area di interesse, uno studio di un anno durante il quale sono state raccolte zecche da cervidi selvatici, uomo e dall’ambiente, successivamente identificate e analizzate mediante PCR. Le zecche appartenenti alla specie Ixodes ricinus (la specie più frequente in tutte le raccolte sono state testate mediante tre diverse PCR per la ricerca di Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. Inoltre, per identificare le genospecie di Borrelia burgdorferi s.lcoinvolte, è stato amplificato e sequenziato un frammento della regione intergenica spaziatrice 5S-23S dell’ RNA ribosomiale. Il sequenziamento ha permesso di identificare due differenti genospecie: B. burgdorferi s.s. e B. lusitaniae, precedentemente coinvolte in casi umani di malattia di Lyme. Le informazioni riguardo le relazioni tra ospite, zecca e genospecie di B. burgdorferi s.l., confermando le notizie già presenti in letteratura per il bacino del Mediterraneo, mostrano come nell’area di interesse siano presenti le condizioni favorevoli allo sviluppo del ciclo della borreliosi di Lyme.

    Obiettivi: valutare le frequenze dei principali geni metabolici in un campione di casi di GC (Carcinoma Gastrico e di controlli, per determinare se esiste un’associazione con il rischio di GC, e considerare le possibili associazioni tra i genotipi studiati ed alcuni parametri clinico-patologici.

    Metodi: è stato condotto uno studio caso-controllo ospedaliero, tra novembre 1999 e maggio 2003 reclutando 48 pazienti con diagnosi di adenocarcinoma gastrico sottoposti a gastrectomia, e 48 controlli appaiati per sesso ed età presso il Policlinico Universitario “A. Gemelli” in Roma. Per genotipizzare gli individui rispetto ai geni GSTM1, NAT2, SULT1A1, CYP1A1, CYP2E1 (5’ flanking e introne 6, è stata usata la tecnica della PCR con analisi del profilo dei frammenti di restrizione (PCR-RFLP. L’analisi statistica ha previsto l’impiego di test non parametrici e della regressione logistica.

    Risultati: le frequenze dei polimorfismi nei geni metabolici sono risultate in alcuni casi differenti nei casi rispetto ai controlli sebbene non si evidenzi una differenza statisticamente significativa. In particolare il genotipo GSMT1 null è più elevato nei pazienti rispetto ai controlli (63.8% vs. 51% e gli individui NAT2 acetilatori lenti risultano più frequenti nei casi rispetto ai controlli (69.6% vs. 57.45%. L’istotipo diffuso di GC è associato significativamente ai pazienti eterozigoti per l’allele SULT1A1 (c_= 8.216; p= 0.018, ed i pazienti NAT2 acetilatori lenti tendono ad avere un grading tumorale alto (c_= 7.425; p= 0.006.

    Conclusioni: i risultati preliminari di questo studio evidenziano associazioni tra alcuni genotipi metabolici e parametri clinico-patologici, che se confermati potrebbero permettere di identificare sottogruppi con prognosi più sfavorevole di GC da indirizzare preventivamente verso trattamenti specifici.

    Full Text Available Prato rappresenta uno studio di come la crescita industriale nella produzione tessile possa influenzare la condizione architettonica. Negli anni del dopoguerra, i pratesi hanno sviluppato metodi di specializzazione in una rete di PMI familiari. L’industria tessile del territorio si è ristretta negli ultimi anni, alla fine soccombendo alle forze della produzione di massa. La stessa città ha visto un aumento degli immigranti cinesi, che trovano lavoro nella fiorente industria di indumenti “fast fashion”. Un rogo in una fabbrica nel dicembre del 2013 ha rivelato tensioni e la colpevolezza del grande pubblico. Ciò nonostante, il successo storico di Prato e le sue necessità urgenti richiedono un esame e un confronto. La disaggregazione fisica della fabbrica e della città dà indizi su ciò che si può salvare e rinnovare. / Prato is a study of industrial growth in textile production, coming to bear on an architectural condition. In the years after World War II, the Pratese developed methods of specialization in a network of small- to medium-sized family owned firms. The local textile industry has contracted in recent years, finally falling to the forces of mass production. The city itself has seen an increase in Chinese immigrants, who find work in the burgeoning ‘fast fashion’ garment industry. A factory fire in December 2013 exposed the tensions and culpability of the population at large. Yet Prato’s historical success and urgent needs beg for examination, and comparison. The physical disaggregation of factory and city give clues as to what can be retrieved, and made anew.

    Full Text Available Attraverso uno studio di caso che coinvolge due studentesse di italiano L2 di livello elementare/intermedio, si prendono in esame alcuni dei fattori che possono influire sull’utilizzo del feedback scritto da parte degli apprendenti. La raccolta dei dati si è svolta in tre giornate: nella prima le partecipanti hanno scritto un testo collaborativo a partire da una storia per immagini; nella seconda i testi, corretti con un intervento di feedback implicito, sono stati riconsegnati e la coppia ha prima analizzato le segnalazioni ricevute e poi riscritto il testo; nella terza le apprendenti hanno prodotto testi individuali a partire dallo stesso stimolo visivo. Oltre a confrontare le diverse stesure del testo, si analizzano le interazioni avvenute tra le apprendenti durante il lavoro di coppia finalizzato a utilizzare il feedback per produrre il secondo testo collaborativo. I risultati mostrano da un lato che un elevato livello di coinvolgimento nell’elaborazione del feedback non ne garantisce un utilizzo efficace, dall’altro che hanno un peso non trascurabile anche fattori più “personali” come le convinzioni sulla lingua bersaglio e l’atteggiamento nei confronti del lavoro di coppia.  A case study on the development and use of written feedback in Italian L2 learners  Through a case study involving two female elementary/intermediate Italian L2 students, we examine some of the factors that may affect the use of written feedback by the learners.

    RIASSUNTO. Scopo. È noto come l'anoressia nervosa (AN) e il disturbo dello spetto autistico (ASD) condividano alcuni tratti, come la rigidità mentale e l'attenzione per i dettagli, che potrebbero essere diffusi a livello familiare. Questo studio ha lo scopo di confrontare la distribuzione di tratti autistici in genitori con figlie affette da disturbo alimentare ED (anoressia - AN o bulimia nervosa - BN) con genitori appartenenti a un gruppo di controllo. Metodi. Sono stati coinvolti 40 genitori con figlie affette da disturbo alimentare (60% con anoressia, 40% con bulimia nervosa) e 33 genitori di controllo. Tutti i genitori hanno compilato questionari specifici riguardanti il quoziente di spettro autistico (AQ) e le stime cognitive (CET). Inoltre, sono stati somministrati EAT-26 e SCL-90-R al fine di escludere la presenza di disturbi psichiatrici o alimentari nel gruppo sperimentale. Risultati. Le analisi su AQ mostrano una differenza tra i due gruppi per un tratto autistico specifico, evidenziando una riduzione significativa dell'attenzione per i dettagli nel gruppo sperimentale (ED), in particolare nei genitori di figlie affette da AN. Discussione. Questi dati suggeriscono una preferenza per un'elaborazione globale delle informazioni nei genitori AN in contrasto a quanto trovato in pazienti con AN. La presenza di aspetti depressivi, ansiosi e di disturbi alimentari è stata esclusa nei genitori nel gruppo sperimentale tramite SCL-90-R e EAT-26. Infine, la capacità di prendere decisioni, misurata dal CET, è stata esclusa dalle nostre analisi. Conclusione. Nei genitori con figlie affette da AN emerge una peculiare preferenza per un'elaborazione cognitiva globale, suggerendo il ruolo dell'attenzione per i dettagli come nuovo fattore da considerare nelle valutazione cliniche di pazienti con AN e nei loro familiari. Considerando i limiti dello studio, ulteriori approfondimenti in merito sono necessari.

    Razionale dello studio proposto In contesti come le Residenze Sanitarie Assistenziali (RSA, le Residenze Protette (RP, l’Assistenza Domiciliare Integrata (ADI la letteratura e le prime esperirne italiane evidenziano come il problema ICPA sia importante e, pur variando le tipologie di infezione prevalenti, i costi individuali, sociali ed economici ad esse collegati rimangono molto elevati.

    In questo scenario diventa importante che i Comitati per il Controllo delle Infezioni Ospedaliere (CIO aziendali affrontino il problema del controllo delle infezioni in ambito extraospedaliero e comincino a strutturare modelli organizzativi in grado di operare efficacemente. Il dimensionamento del problema, ovvero l’attività di sorveglianza epidemiologica, anche in questo caso è tra le prime attività necessarie di provata efficacia.

    Obiettivo dello studio: una prima valutazione della dimensione del problema ICPA nelle strutture RSA presenti nelle diverse regioni italiane attraverso uno studio di prevalenza nazionale. Materiali e metodi: l progetto prevede una prima fase con l’individuazione dei centri partecipanti e dei rispettivi referenti medici ed infermieristici. Successivamente si procederà, utilizzando la metodologia già testata in uno studio pilota, alla formazione del personale sull’uso degli strumenti. Saranno arruolati tutti i pazienti degenti da oltre 48 ore nelle RSA partecipanti, escludendo quelli in dimissione o in trasferimento nel giorno di rilevazione. I rilevatori, esterni alla struttura, raccoglieranno i dati consultando il quaderno infermieristico, il quaderno terapia, il diario clinico, la cartella clinica ed esaminando ciascun paziente per validare la eventuale presenza di “devices” e confermare sintomi e segni rientranti nelle definizioni di caso. Laddove necessario verrà consultato il personale medico ed infermieristico della struttura. Le variabili raccolte saranno centrate su dati

Secondo l’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità la qualità di vita (QdV è “la personale percezione che un individuo ha della propria posizione nella vita, nel contesto di una cultura e di un insieme di valori nei quali egli vive, anche in relazione ai propri obiettivi, aspettative e preoccupazioni”. Numerosi sono gli strumenti psicometrici progettati per misurare in ambito sanitario l’impatto dell’erogazione di interventi clinico-assistenziali sulla QdV degli utenti, tuttavia poca attenzione si è posta sul ruolo di alcuni predittori - socio-demografici, clinici ed economico-sanitari - durante la degenza ospedaliera. Obiettivi. Accertare l’esistenza ed il tipo di associazione tra alcuni predittori e la variazione della QdV alla dimissione; esaminare i possibili risvolti per la pratica infermieristica. Metodi. Lo studio, condotto presso la struttura ospedaliera del polo universitario di Milano, ha somministrato all’ingresso e alla dimissione dei pazienti lo strumento psicometrico EuroQol-5D. Per valutare l’impatto del trattamento sulla QdV è utilizzato il test ?2, mentre per misurare significatività e rilevanza dei predittori è stato creato un modello di regressione logistica multipla. Risultati. L’erogazione di un trattamento clinico durante il ricovero migliora la QdV percepita (p < 0.001. La proporzione di esiti positivi nei trattamenti medici rispetto a quelli chirurgici è superiore (p < 0.05, così come quella nei ricoveri urgenti (p < 0.01. Il modello di regressione logistica multipla mostra associazioni significative tra età (p < 0.05, degenza (p < 0.05, tempo di intervento (p < 0.01 e variazione della QdV. Limiti. Studio monocentrico; campione di convenienza; periodo di osservazione limitato con possibili scostamenti nel numero e tipologia di ricoveri rispetto alla media annua. Conclusioni. La QdV percepita alla dimissione migliora in caso di erogazione di un trattamento clinico, in particolare se

Nella specifica analisi sull’uso del tedesco si sono definite: la percentuale delle imprese visitate nelle quali si parla la lingua; le tipologie di persone, attive nelle aziende, che parlano il tedesco insieme al relativo livello di conoscenza; le ipotesi che spiegherebbero l’elevato grado di fidelizzazione alla lingua; nonché, il possibile uso extralavorativo del tedesco, pratica utile e fondamentale per ampliare il proprio lessico. In breve, sono state verificate anche le lingue parlate tra i legali italiani e quelli all’estero, nel caso in cui le aziende si fossero servite di tali consulenze. Infine, per le apprezzabili opportunità di lavoro offerte a chi parla le lingue straniere si è auspicata una maggiore attenzione al loro insegnamento da parte del sistema scolastico nazionale, rivalutando anche lo studio del tedesco per la sua importanza sulla scena europea.

    RIASSUNTO. Introduzione. La depressione maggiore (MD) e l'osteoporosi sono malattie ad alta prevalenza nel genere femminile, associate a morbosità e mortalità. Sebbene alcuni studi abbiano dimostrato un'associazione tra MD, ridotta densità minerale ossea (BMD) e osteoporosi, non sono stati chiariti i meccanismi causali. Lo stile di attaccamento insicuro è stato messo in relazione con la patogenesi e il decorso di malattie croniche come la MD e le malattie cardiovascolari. Obiettivo di questo studio pilota è esplorare la relazione tra MD e BMD. Si ipotizza che lo stile di attaccamento possa agire da mediatore. Metodi. Il campione è formato da 101 donne in menopausa, 49 con MD e 52 controlli sani. La diagnosi di MD è stata formulata con l'intervista clinica e la Beck Depression Inventory. Lo stile di attaccamento è stato esplorato usando il Relationship Questionnaire, la BMD con la Mineralometria Ossea Computerizzata con tecnica DXA (Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry). Risultati. L'analisi univariata ha mostrato che le donne con MD avevano valori di BMD inferiori rispetto ai controlli sani. Nelle analisi di regressione multipla la MD non è emersa come predittore significativo di ridotta BMD. Lo stile di attaccamento insicuro "preoccupato" è risultato un predittore significativo di ridotta BMD in tutti i siti scheletrici misurati con la DXA: colonna vertebrale lombare (p=0,008) e segmenti femorali: "femoral neck" (p=0,011), "total hip" (p=0,002). Conclusioni. Questo è il primo studio che esplora il possibile ruolo di MD e stile di attaccamento sulla BMD. Lo stile di attaccamento è risultato un predittore di ridotta BMD, indipendentemente dalla MD. L'attaccamento insicuro potrebbe avere un ruolo nella patogenesi dell'osteoporosi anche indipendente dalla MD. Se questi risultati saranno confermati, gli interventi terapeutici focalizzati sullo stile di attaccamento potrebbero contribuire al miglioramento della comorbilità psichiatrica e medica legata all'osteoporosi.

    Introduzione: poichè nel 1985 l’O.M.S. collocò l’eradicazione della carie infantile fra gli obiettivi epidemiologici da raggiungere nella regione europea entro l’anno 2000, è stato effettuato uno screening microbiologico finalizzato all’isolamento di germi cariogeni nel cavo orale dei bambini.

    Materiali e metodi: secondo le procedure correnti, sono stati eseguiti tamponi gengivo-coronali in 476 bambini delle scuole elementari e medie inferiori di Ferrara, cui è stato somministrato anche un questionario, mirato a conoscere il loro grado di informazione sull’igiene orale. Risultati: nel periodo Gennaio-Aprile 2000, sono stati esaminati 476 bambini suddivisi per sesso ed età [6-8 anni: 67 maschi, 98 femmine; 9-11: 53 maschi, 81 femmine; 12-14: 99 maschi, 78 femmine]. Sono stati isolati 119 ceppi di Rothia dentocariosa, con una preponderanza fra i maschi di 12-14 anni (n. 86; 86,8%. Dai questionari (476 consegnati; 399 compilati si evince che l’86,4% ritiene importante l’igiene orale, ma solo il 51,8% si lava i denti dopo ogni pasto ed appena il 22,3% esegue un controllo periodico dal dentista. Rothia dentocariosa è stata isolata nel 56,5% di coloro che si lavano i denti una volta al giorno e nel 75,9% di quelli che non li lavano.

    Conclusioni: considerando che Rothia dentocariosa non risulta essere un normale saprofita del cavo orale ma è probabilmente un germe opportunista in grado di promuovere attivamente le lesioni della carie iniziale, il suo isolamento può essere considerato un indice precoce di lesione cariogena in progressione. Ne deriva che, nonostante i notevoli progressi compiuti negli ultimi anni, paragonabili a quelli di nazioni ad alto tenore sociosanitario, l’obiettivo dell’eradicazione totale della carie dalla popolazione infantile ferrarese non è stato ancora raggiunto. Ciò principalmente a causa di un difetto di formazione culturale sia

    Purpose: To report the results of a three-year observational pilot study of lung cancer screening with low dose computed tomography (CT) and to present the study design of a randomised clinical trial named as Italung CT. Materials and methods: Sixty (47 males and 13 females, mean age 64{+-}4.5 years) heavy smokers (at least 20 packs-year) underwent three low-dose spiral CT screening tests one year apart on a single slice or multislice CT scanner. Indeterminate nodules were managed according to the recommendations of the Early Lung Cancer Action Project. Results: Indeterminate nodules were observed in 33 (55%) of the subjects (60% at the baseline screening test, 24% at the first annual test and 16% at the second annual test). The size of the largest indeterminate nodule was <5mm in diameter in 20 subjects. 10 of whom showed the nodule at the baseline test. Forty-five subjects (75%) completed the first annual test and 42 (70%) the second annual test. One (1.6%) prevalent lung cancer (adenosquamous carcinoma) and one (2.2%) incident lung cancer (small cell cancer at the first annual examination) were observed, as well as pulmonary localisation of Hodgkin's lymphoma (at the second annual test). In addition, one subject underwent lung surgery for a chondromatous hamartoma. Conclusions: The results of the pilot study are substantially in line with those of other observational studies of greater sample size. This justifies optimism about the reliability of the results in the screened arm of the Italung Ct trial which hast just began.

    Full Text Available This study argues that the communication of and in mystical texts is closely bound to a rhetoric of space, to distinctions between inside and outside, and to structures that allow initiates to convey their secretly aquired knowledge in visions and autobiographical texts. The MHG term heimelîch is identified as a keyword for the communication and the relationship between God and the human being. Moreover, this eroticized concept proves inseparable from the concept of a birthing God, an idea which in turn has poetological implications: the texts themselves are seen as participating in the birth of the Word; incarnation and literary communication become synonymous.

We will recount our experiences in introducing a workshop-based physics course at a large Canadian university from the initial push to the final implementation. In particular, we will discuss the details of our curriculum and what modifications were made to align our Studio Physics I&II courses with the currently existing lecture courses. This involved, among other things, adapting some of our first-year physics laboratory experiments in optics and electricity and magnetism to the workshop format. We will also discuss the myriad of obstacles that were encountered along the way. The results of before-and-after FCI testing for the first two offerings of Studio Physics I will also be presented along with student feedback from course evaluations. And finally, we will elaborate on our plans for the future.

    Berklee College of Music (in Boston) needed a new studio in which to teach stereo mixing and critical listening. A small synthesis lab (adjacent to the main lobby, directly over the cafeteria kitchen, penetrated by exhaust ducts, and next to a bathroom) was chosen for renovation. The primary requirements were for maximum visibility to assure hopeful future engineers a full view of all the cool gear, and comfortable seating for fifteen students. The challenges, to be discussed, included isolation with a view, quiet HVAC, and great sound, in a space that was acoustically too small and in the wrong place. The best verification of success is its popularity, which has prevented the author from booking time for listening or testing.

    Full Text Available Background. Esistono numerose fonti per identificare eventi avversi e near-miss. L’integrazione delle informazioni provenienti dalle diverse fonti può offrire una rappresentazione più completa degli incidenti che avvengono in ambito sanitario. La tassonomia International Classification of Patient Safety (ICPS sviluppata dall’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità (OMS rappresenta un quadro concettuale di riferimento relativo alla sicurezza del paziente, in grado di facilitare il confronto delle informazioni provenienti da diverse fonti, sia a livello locale che tra differenti istituzioni. Obiettivi. Utilizzo della classificazione ICPS dell’OMS per la mappatura aziendale dei rischi clinici e la definizione di strategie di intervento per la prevenzione degli eventi avversi. Metodi. Mediante l’utilizzo delle classi incident type e patient outcome dell’ICPS, sono state classificate e aggregate 902 segnalazioni rilevate nel 2012, provenienti da 3 fonti informative diverse: sistema di incident reporting, reclami e sinistri. Gli eventi sono stati successivamente collocati in una matrice dei rischi per individuare classi di rischio e priorità di intervento. Risultati. Rispetto alle 13 categorie della classe incident type dell’ICPS le categorie più frequenti sono risultate clinical process/procedure (19,8%, medication (17,5% e patients accidents (13,4%. Per quanto riguarda la classe patient outcome sono risultati più frequenti gli eventi con nessun danno (67,0% e a seguire quelli con danno minore (27,5%, moderato” (4,9%, severo (0,4% e decesso (0,2%. L’analisi dei dati aggregati conferma che ogni fonte informativa contribuisce in modo diverso alla definizione delle tipologie di eventi. La valutazione effettuata con la matrice dei rischi ha evidenziato che le tipologie di eventi di accadimento più frequente sono anche quelle con un livello di rischio più elevato. Sulla base delle priorità individuate, sono state definite a livello aziendale strategie di intervento per la riduzione dei rischi, secondo quanto previsto dal Piano Aziendale delle Azioni per la Sicurezza. Limiti. Il modello utilizzato presenta i limiti epidemiologici e metodologici delle fonti utilizzate. Alcune categorie della classe incident type appaiono eccessivamente generiche e trasversali, con conseguente difficoltà di classificazione per alcuni tipi di eventi. Conclusioni.Il sistema ICPS dell’OMS permette di avere un quadro concettuale di riferimento per l’integrazione delle diverse fonti informative, con il quale è possibile confrontare i risultati delle attività relative alla gestione dei rischi sia a livello locale che tra le diverse aziende.

    Full Text Available Deleuze and Freud. Notes for a study on “The Logic of Sense”. Can we claim that Deleuze is tacitly indebted to Freud and Freudiansm? This essay suggests that Deleuze experienced a double misunderstanding of the father of psychoanalysis. This could be ascribed to the misrecognition of the intrinsic affinities between the critical intention of Deleuze and Guattari and the materialism and anti-cartesianism that informed the Freudian program, and to the unexpected convergences with the latter. Such convergences can be traced in some passages of The Logic of Sense, through the mediation of the Kleinian lesson and the introduction of the concept of phantom – element which sublimates the libidinal energy and the erotic investment; or through dynamic homologies and structural ones with the classical psychoanalytical approach. Thus, Freud could be part of a hidden genealogy of Deleuze’s thought.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to investigate self-regulation enhancement within a CLIL course targeted to teach academic listening and reading skills. Explicit learning strategies instruction was implemented to promote learners’ skills to autonomously manage academic studies in Italian as a second language in a university setting. Students’ cognitive styles were also catered for while carrying out learning strategies instruction. Findings show that learners reached a high degree of self-regulation in terms of reading skills while tackling academic materials in Italian as a second language; on the other hand, a slightly lower degree of autonomy was detected in learners in terms of academic listening skills.

    Full Text Available The aim of the analysis was to evaluate the reasons that caused the poor economic results and performances of a Radiology Department located in a public hospital. The models of Decision Support System were utilized in order to conduct the studies. These models represent clearly a current economic situation and allow simulations in order to estimate in a preventive way the economic results of different alternative actions. The economic analysis was conducted according to the extended direct costing method utilizing a single performance (product as a calculation unit. The simulations were carried out in accordance to the “price-cost-volume analysis” method that identifies the break even point for the families of products. These analysis resulted in a significant improvement of the awareness relative to the economic actions of the operative managerial decisions: the main factor in the process of the decision making for the public healthcare structure is to respond to the needs of the potential users and therefore to satisfy the demand, the increase of which is immediately signalised by the lengthening of the awaiting list. For the structure which is incorporated in the hospital frame there is the necessity to provide the service towards inside the hospital both relative to the patients and to the performances of first aid supported by the emergency department. It is important to stress that, even if limited or conditional, there is a space for improvement: the first step in this direction is to analyse in order to recognize and to measure, if not able to improve that what is unknown and not measured before.

    Full Text Available Design activities in a studio do not only involve students, but also need to be accompanied by tutors, guest lecturers, consumers, and the professionals. Each of these individuals gives different contribution according to each own competency. The involvement that takes place between these individuals does not only consist of tutorials, and is not just an activity in which "the student asks and the tutor answers". The involvement consists of various programs, which must be arranged and coordinated inside a tight schedule. This wrong image of studio instruction has been prevalent, and this seems to be caused by the practice of tutors of treating their students not as students whom they are educating and instructing, but more as junior designers who are working in a design project. The activities of the students and tutors in the studio then are just training and not teaching while in reality both of them are absolutely necessary in studio instruction. Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia : Aktivitas kerja desain di sebuah studio jurusan aritektur melibatkan tidak hanya mahasiswa, tetapi membutuhkan kehadiran pembimbing, dosen tamu, calon pengguna, dan professional (baca: praktisi. Setiap individu yang terlibat mempunyai peran yang berbeda-beda sesuai kompetensinya, sedangkan keterlibatan antar individu tidak sekedar dilakukan dengan cara asistensi. Aktivitas di studio bukanlah sekedar aktivitas "mahasiswa bertanya dan pembimbing menjawab", melainkan terdiri dari bermacam-macam program aktivitas yang harus didisain dengan penjadwalan waktu yang ketat.

  8. Semiempirical UNO-CAS and UNO-CI: method and applications in nanoelectronics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dral, Pavlo O; Clark, Timothy

    2011-10-20

    Unrestricted Natural Orbital-Complete Active Space Configuration Interaction, abbreviated as UNO-CAS, has been implemented for NDDO-based semiempirical molecular-orbital (MO) theory. A computationally more economic technique, UNO-CIS, in which we use a configuration interaction (CI) calculation with only single excitations (CIS) to calculate excited states, has also been implemented and tested. The class of techniques in which unrestricted natural orbitals (UNOs) are used as the reference for CI calculations is denoted UNO-CI. Semiempirical UNO-CI gives good results for the optical band gaps of organic semiconductors such as polyynes and polyacenes, which are promising materials for nanoelectronics. The results of these semiempirical UNO-CI techniques are generally in better agreement with experiment than those obtained with the corresponding conventional semiempirical CI methods and comparable to or better than those obtained with far more computationally expensive methods such as time-dependent density-functional theory. We also show that symmetry breaking in semiempirical UHF calculations is very useful for predicting the diradical character of organic compounds in the singlet spin state.

    2003-09-01

    The studio-based method of teaching has been used for almost 100 years to teach product and architecture design. With ever increasing pressure on HCI to teach competence in designing interactive objects, new ways of teaching need to be explored. This article begins with a review of the studio-based teaching concept and how it has been used in architecture, science/engineering, and computer science education. We then present and discuss the evaluation of an HCI design studio course which we created and taught in spring 2002 in the Computer and Information Science Department of the University of Oregon. This course was based on our observations and study of studio courses in the School of Architecture. Finally, we review general issues about studio teaching including the promises and challenges that it presents to widespread acceptance in the computer science curriculum.

    Schutz, B. E.; Ho, C. S.; Abusali, P. A. M.; Tapley, B. D.

    1990-01-01

    CASA Uno data from sites distributed in longitude from Australia to Europe have been used to determine orbits of the GPS satellites. The characteristics of the orbits determined from double difference phase have been evaluated through comparisons of two-week solutions with one-week solutions and by comparisons of predicted and estimated orbits. Evidence of unmodeled effects is demonstrated, particularly associated with the orbit planes that experience solar eclipse. The orbit accuracy has been assessed through the repeatability of unconstrained estimated baseline vectors ranging from 245 km to 5400 km. Both the baseline repeatability and the comparison with independent space geodetic methods give results at the level of 1-2 parts in 100,000,000. In addition, the Mojave/Owens Valley (245 km) and Kokee Park/Ft. Davis (5409 km) estimates agree with VLBI and SLR to better than 1 part in 100,000,000.

Some of these changes are mathematical, others are philosophical, and others are historical in character. This retrospective of the concept of number ‘one’ implies that the history of mathematics is much more complex and rich than that which is suggested by our intuition when we limit ourselves to a unique, lineal and continuous mathematics.

Particularly, we focuse on five bilingual documents of the Codice Aragonese, a codex from the chancellery of the Aragonese Crown at Naples in the 15th century. We analyze the historical and social context in which the letters have been written, in order to outline the motivation to change the linguistic code, this is, from the Catalan or Castilian language to the Neapolitan one, or vice versa. At the same time, we like to demonstrate the tendency of writing in Catalan in emotional situations or under strong political tension, but also in familiary contexts to create proximity and intimacy.Keywords: Catalan, Neapolitan, sociolinguistics, Catalan-Aragonese Crown, Bilingualism, Code switching

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Psychotic disorders are a ravaging and costly mental illness. Treatment of these disorders involves pharmacological and non pharmacological resources. Pharmacological therapy with antipsychotic drugs contribute strongly to relieve psychotic patients symptoms. By the end of 90’s the new atypical antipsychotic have been introduced. This kind of drugs is supposed to be more effective but also more expensive compared with the old typical neuroleptics. OBJECTIVE: To compare costs and outcomes associated with 12 months treatment of psychotic disorders using typical and atypical antipsychotics in addition to psychiatric services. Moreover to extend the same comparison among the atypical drugs currently used in the clinical practice (olanzapine, risperidone, quetiapine and clozapine. METHODS AND PATIENTS: A multicentre observational study was carried out in 131 patients affected by psychotic disorders (schizophrenia and bipolar. Data were collected with reference to patients followed by several Psychiatric Services of Regione Puglia (Italy. Patients were classified in five groups (typical neuroleptics, olanzapine, risperidone, quetiapine and clozapine according to their main antipsychotic therapy. Treatment outcomes had been assessed during 12 months of observation considering the patients improvement in their work and social functioning. For these patients we analyzed pharmacological, non pharmacological (medical/ nurse visits, social assistance, rehabilitative sessions and hospital interventions, choosing the perspective of the Italian Mental Health Centers for costs attribution. Moreover indirect costs (caregiver and private assistance to the patient had been evaluated for each group of treatment. The study is based on the observation of real clinical behaviours; therefore patients are not randomised to different treatments. RESULTS: The analysis of treatment outcomes didn’t generate significant differences among the groups despite a positive trend in terms of work functioning in favor of olanzapine. The pharmacological interventionts evidentiated an economic significant advantage (p<0,05 in the typical group, compared to all atypical groups, due to the cheaper cost of these drugs. However the overall costs of treatment (pharmacological and non pharmacological resources didn’t evidentiate significant differences between typical and atypical agents. The comparison among atypical drugs showed a significant (p=0,0426 overall cost advantage of olanzapine group (8.843 euros compared to quetiapine group (12.344 euros. Moreover the finding from this study suggest that olanzapine leads to reduce in the long term the caregiver costs avoiding at the same time the use of the private assistance for the chronic psychotic patient. CONCLUSIONS: Within the local clinical context, olanzapine appears to provide advantages over the other antipsychotics considering the reduction, statistically significant, in total healthcare resources utilization and savings in terms of costs of caregiver and private assistance related to its use.

An administrative database kept by the Local Health Unit of Ravenna listing patient baseline characteristics, drug prescriptions and hospital admissions was used to perform a population-based cohort study. The study included all new users of antihypertensive drugs, 20 years of age or over receiving a first prescription for diuretics, beta-blockers, calcium channel-blockers, ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II antagonists (AIIAs between January 1st, 2000 and December 31st, 2000. All prescriptions for anti-hypertensive drugs filled during the 12-months follow-up period were considered. Patients were classified as continuers, switchers and discontinuers on the basis of their prescription dynamics. A total of 14.062 patients were included in the study of whom only 39,7% resulted persistent at 12 months. Patients initially prescribed for AIIAs were more likely to continue antihypertensive treatment than those started on other drug classes as well as those with older age, concurrent drug therapies and previous hospitalisation for cardiovascular diseases. The overall cost of the study cohort for antihypertensive drugs amounted to 1.238.752,37 euros of which 80,6% was used for persistent patients. The annual average cost for antihypertensive drugs was 171,73 euro for continuers, 205,10 euros for switchers and 28,29 euros for discontinuers. Factors associated to drug cost were age, pattern of persistence, number of prescribed drug classes, and class prescribed at enrolment. Nonpersistence with antihypertensive pharmacotherapy induced a high cost for the consumption of antihypertensive drug since discontinuers are responsible for a significant percentage of drug resources allocated on subjects exposed to therapy. A correlation between drug therapy cost and persistence with treatment is needed to evaluate the appropriateness of drug utilization and to perform cost-effectiveness analyses between alternative pharmacological agents.

    Full Text Available Il presente lavoro offre una descrizione dettagliata delle varie forme della ripetizione in italiano e in arabo. Questo lavoroè  diviso in tre parti. La prima parte fornisce una descrizione formale e semantica delle forme di ripetizione lessicale in italiano e in arabo. Confrontando le due lingue in questo rispetto, ho dimostrato che dal punto di vista formale le due lingue offrono la stessa strategia. La seconda parte propone un’analisi delle proprietà sintattiche e semantiche della ripetizione enfatica attraverso uno studio semantico approfondito del romanzo siciliano “Uno, nessuno e centomila” di Luigi Pirandello. E nella terza parte si sono messe in evidenza le varie strategie impiegate nel tradurre dall’italiano in arabo la ripetizione enfatica confrontando le forme di ripetizione italiane con la loro traduzione in arabo.

  8. Introduction of studio physics teaching in Panama

    Barrera-Garrido, Azael

    2013-01-01

    Physics Studio teaching was recently introduced at an international and multicultural academic program of a U.S. university in Panama. The results of introducing and implementing studio-style teaching on the conceptual understanding of calculus-based introductory physics have been measured by comparing before and during studio implementation. The research was carried on over the last five years in different semesters. The measurement tool was the Force Concept Inventory. The initial learning stage of the incoming diverse students has been found to be at a significantly lower level than generally reported in the U.S. The normalized gain in conceptual understanding was significantly larger than in the former traditional system, and has become consistent in the last semesters. Multicultural aspects that may affect the entry level and performance enhancement are discussed.

    Full Text Available La dialettologia, come del resto quasi tutta la linguistica ottocentesca, era di prevalenza storica, si interessava cioè allo sviluppo dei vari idiomi, seguendo i loro cambiamenti, uno a uno, lungo l'asse del tempo. Il criterio orizzontale o sincronico è stato impiegato poi con gran successo dallo strutturalismo »classico« il quale, in nn seoondo tempo, perfezionò anche i metodi della ricerca diacronica confrontando tra di loro due o più livelli sincronici appartenenti a epoche diverse. Mancava però a tale indirizzo la dimensione sociale, ossia il sistema linguistico delle parlate, dei dialetti e dei gruppi dialettali veniva considerato come se fosse omogeneo e venivano lasciate in disparte le differenze dovute all'origine sociale dei parlanti. Questa terza dimensione, il cosiddetto spessore sociale, è ora valorizzata in pieno dalla dialettologia piil recente che non si limita soltanto allo studio dei dialetti della campagna ma anche affronta con ooraggio 1o studio dei oosiddeti dialetti urbani.

  12. Literary Representations of Brancusi’s Studio

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Irina Cărăbaş

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available This essay examines two novels, the main character of which is Constantin Brancusi: The Interview [1944] by Ilarie Voronca, and The Saint of Montparnasse [1965] by Peter Neagoe. Although dissimilar in style and genre, the two novels share the same pattern of shaping the artist’s image, grounded on mythical elements that are traceable at some points back in the Renaissance. The studio plays the key role in structuring the narrative of the two novels. Seen as an extension, if not as a double of the sculptor character, the studio is a space of seduction and authority, malleable and metamorphic, meant to set up the encounter with the artist.

    Full Text Available

    Obiettivo: nell’ambito dello studio multicentrico sulla
    legionellosi in Italia, è stata effettuata una sorveglianza sui pazienti affetti da polmonite per valutare la frequenza d’infezioni nosocomiali e comunitarie da Legionella e, sui casi individuati, viene condotto uno studio caso-controllo per approfondire le conoscenze sui fattori di rischio correlati alla malattia.

    Metodi: la sorveglianza della legionellosi è stata allestita in 6 ospedali, utilizzando come test diagnostici la ricerca dell’Ag urinario, colture da escreato e sieroconversione.
    Per lo studio caso-controllo è stata allestita una scheda sulle modalità di reclutamento dei casi e dei controlli, sono state definite le analisi chimico-cliniche e immunologiche da effettuare sui soggetti reclutati, e predisposto un questionario per la raccolta d’informazioni sui fattori di rischio.

    Risultati: su 2.287 soggetti affetti da polmonite sono stati riscontrati 84 casi di legionellosi, per la maggior parte (n.76 di tipo comunitario. Tra i casi individuati, 60 sono stati reclutati per lo studio caso-controllo e sono stati associati a 117 controlli, una parte affetti da polmonite diversa da legionellosi, una parte sani. Nei soggetti affetti da legionellosi, la ferritina serica era significativamente più
    elevata rispetto ai controlli, mentre il numero delle
    cellule natural killer era significativamente inferiore.
    Lo studio dei possibili fattori di rischio associati alla malattia non ha evidenziato differenze significative tra i casi ed i controlli per le abitudini personali e le condizioni espositive ambientali.

    Conclusioni: questa indagine ha permesso di verificare
    che circa il 4% delle polmoniti ricoverate sono da attribuirsi a Legionella. Gli 8 casi nosocomiali sono stati individuati in 3 degli ospedali sorvegliati

  2. Virtual Studio Practices: Visual Artists, Social Media and Creativity

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kylie Budge

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Artists’ practices are varied. Two extremes include the need for complete solitude when working and others who seek social environments such as collaborations in communal studio settings. In addition to these real life studio practices new technologies and social media have made it possible for artists to use virtual studio practices in the process of developing creative work. Working virtually offers a range of interesting benefits for creative practice. This article explores the author’s recent experiences in virtual studio practices in light of the literature on this topic and considers the implications for creativity. It highlights five specific benefits in using virtual studio practices and considers possible limitations of working in such a manner. In exploring virtual studio practices and arguing the case for such ways of working, this article contributes to research and understandings about creative practice by discussing one artist’s reflective experience of using virtual studio practices.

  3. CS-Studio Scan System Parallelization

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kasemir, Kay [ORNL; Pearson, Matthew R [ORNL

    2015-01-01

    For several years, the Control System Studio (CS-Studio) Scan System has successfully automated the operation of beam lines at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and Spallation Neutron Source (SNS). As it is applied to additional beam lines, we need to support simultaneous adjustments of temperatures or motor positions. While this can be implemented via virtual motors or similar logic inside the Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) Input/Output Controllers (IOCs), doing so requires a priori knowledge of experimenters requirements. By adding support for the parallel control of multiple process variables (PVs) to the Scan System, we can better support ad hoc automation of experiments that benefit from such simultaneous PV adjustments.

Data on noise levels in a large number of auditoria have been examined to determine whether a similar process is applicable to these. A wide range of seemingly arbitrary desi...

  6. Simple Models Create Steep Learning Curves in Academic Design Studio

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    This paper presents an easily adaptable, very learning-efficient and solution-oriented design studio method: ‘the simple model method’. On a practical level it solves well known problems that occur when teaching design studios. On a theoretical level it suggests a ‘third way’ of bridging design......, their supervisors and other actors. The simple model is a non-verbal agent. However, due to its simplicity it enables verbalization supporting a solution-focused design studio teaching strategy. The simple model method is presented through a specific design studio course undertaken at the University of Copenhagen...... theory positions normally regarded as mutually incompatible. The method is the result of years of ‘trial and error’ design studio teaching at the University of Copenhagen, triangulated with academic design theory research.

    1999-10-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores the scholarship in creative works and design studios. It examines the particular research methods associated with scholarship in creative works, including reflective practice and hermeneutics. The methodological considerations include comparisons between triangulation and crystallisation as tests for rigour, and the essential role of peer review and publication. The paper concludes with a suite of new landscape design studios with research potential. They include studios as part of larger research projects, and studios which are creative works in their own right where metaphor, trope and a form of avant-gardism are deployed to bring about a form of new knowledge.

  8. Converting DYNAMO simulations to Powersim Studio simulations

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Walker, La Tonya Nicole; Malczynski, Leonard A.

    2014-02-01

    DYNAMO is a computer program for building and running 'continuous' simulation models. It was developed by the Industrial Dynamics Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for simulating dynamic feedback models of business, economic, and social systems. The history of the system dynamics method since 1957 includes many classic models built in DYANMO. It was not until the late 1980s that software was built to take advantage of the rise of personal computers and graphical user interfaces that DYNAMO was supplanted. There is much learning and insight to be gained from examining the DYANMO models and their accompanying research papers. We believe that it is a worthwhile exercise to convert DYNAMO models to more recent software packages. We have made an attempt to make it easier to turn these models into a more current system dynamics software language, Powersim © Studio produced by Powersim AS2 of Bergen, Norway. This guide shows how to convert DYNAMO syntax into Studio syntax.

    Teaching color to students of architecture and design within the higher education sector is becoming more of a luxury than of core business. With increasing financial demands, reduced resources, and increasing student numbers, educators are required to think laterally to cater for change without sacrificing learning objectives. This paper raises some of the issues involved in the educative climate within one Australian university setting. Using a reflective narrative, educational objectives are defined, the implementation of new modes of 'teaching' as a means of coping with higher student numbers and reduced staffing and technical resources are described, and the outcomes in terms of student learning over an eight year period are critiqued. Institutional management policy is forcing the educator to re-evaluate the value of the traditional studio, and the intensive 'hands- on' interactive approach that traditionally is integral to such an approach. As curriculum development involves not only theory and project work, the classroom culture, the physical environment and the University and School context need to be addressed. Generic skills, in association with professional knowledge and skills, should be addressed, and therefore, opportunities for teaching a traditionally studio-based subject on-line as a computer based unit would appear to be limited. This discussion aims to pose questions, as well as reflecting upon successes and failures in this area of education within the University context. There is a need to embrace the contextual demands while ensuring that the student knowledge of color , and the joy of discovering its characteristics in practice, are not sacrificed but enhanced.

    La guida di un autoveicolo, specie in condizioni di intenso traffico o di cattive condizioni meteoclimatiche, è considerata uno dei principali fattori stressanti della vita odierna. Durante la guida si possono infatti osservare significative risposte simpatoadrenergiche e cardiovascolari con la comparsa anche di episodi coronarici. Tali risposte presentano un’ampia variabilità interindividuale in quanto sono influenzate da vari fattori (stile di vita, personalità etc..

    In questa rassegna, vengono presentati i principali risultati degli studi da noi condotti sulle risposte psicofisiologiche indotte dalla guida di diversi tipi di autoveicoli. In conducenti di autobus urbani è stato registrato un sensibile aumento del tasso urinario di adrenalina durante il turno lavorativo rispetto alla stessa fascia oraria di un giorno di riposo. Tale risposta adrenergica era esaltata dall’abitudine tabagica e dall’assunzione di caffè e bevande alcoliche. In soggetti che alla guida di camion coprono lunghe distanze, i più elevati tassi urinari di catecolamine e i più alti livelli di frequenza cardiaca sono stati registrati quando la guida era particolarmente stressante per la presenza di nebbia o di intenso traffico. In soggetti che partecipano, a livello amatoriale, a manifestazioni agonistiche di velocità su pista, abbiamo osservato che durante la gara, rispetto al periodo pre-gara, l’escrezione urinaria di catecolamine aumenta in misura molto rilevante. Analogamente a quanto osservato in autisti di camion, l’attivazione del sistema adrenergico è risultata direttamente associata ai livelli di ansietà. Dall’elettrocardiogramma dinamico è emerso che durante la gara la frequenza cardiaca raggiunge un valore medio di 163.5±7.4 battiti/min. (range: 146,180 battiti/min..

    Un significativo peggioramento della percezione visiva stereoscopica, con potenziale ricaduta negativa sulla performance dei guidatori, è stato osservato in

    Full Text Available L’obiettivo di tipo metodologico del contributo è la messa a punto di uno strumento di supporto al decisore pubblico per l’individuazione delle aree del territorio urbano da destinare alla sosta. La costruzione di tale strumento è guidata da criteri che fanno riferimento a scelte di tipo urbanistico più che di tipo trasportistico e che riguardano prevalentemente l’integrazione tra aspetti di salvaguardia ambientale, distribuzione delle attività e necessità di mobilità. Infatti, il percorso metodologico tende a coniugare le caratteristiche morfologico-insediative e ambientali del sito con la domanda di sosta che dipende dalle attività insediate nell’ambito urbano di rifermento, considerandole quali elementi-chiave nella costruzione di scelte compatibili di trasformazione della città, tanto nella fase di localizzazione, distribuzione e dimensionamento degli interventi quanto nella successiva fase di progettazione della tipologia costruttiva dei manufatti per la sosta. Il contributo, che fa riferimento ad uno studio più ampio, si compone di tre parti. La prima è dedicata alla definizione dell’algoritmo che rappresenta l’iter attraverso cui si definiscono le soluzioni praticabili e compatibili di localizzazione, distribuzione e tipologia delle aree di sosta e di progettazione degli spazi. La seconda parte è dedicata alla definizione degli ulteriori criteri di contesto che vanno di volta in volta adottati in relazione al la città di riferimento. La terza parte è dedicata alla individuazione degli spazi per la sosta di relazione a Napoli, come esempio applicativo concreto dell’algoritmo messo a punto e dei criteri di contesto individuati. L’idea guida dell’intero lavoro è orientata a scoraggiare l’ingresso veicolare nelle aree urbane consolidate e, quindi, ad evitare la localizzazione dei parcheggi nel centro città, considerati quali ulteriori elementi di attrazione dei flussi di traffico.

    2012-09-01

    The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) has taught its first-semester calculus-based introductory physics course (Physics I) using a hybrid lecture/Studio Physics format since the spring of 1997. Starting in the fall of 2007, we have been converting the second semester of our calculus-based introductory physics course (Physics II) to a hybrid lecture/Studio Physics format, beginning from a traditional lecture/lab/recitation course. In this paper, we document the stages of this transformation, highlighting what has worked and what has not, and the challenges and benefits associated with the switch to Studio Physics. A major goal in this study is to develop a method for secondary implementations of Studio physics that keeps the time and resource investments manageable. We describe the history of Studio at CSM and characterize our progress via several metrics, including pre/post Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism (CSEM) scores, Colorado Learning About Science Survey scores (CLASS), exam scores, failure rates, and a variety of qualitative observations. Results suggest that Studio has increased student performance and satisfaction despite an aggressive expansion of class sizes in the past few years. Gains have been concentrated mostly in problem-solving skills and exam performance (as opposed to conceptual survey gains), in contrast to what has sometimes been seen in other studies.

    La disciplina del restauro costituisce un ponte di collegamento fra le materie di carattere umanistico e quelle di carattere tecnico che si integrano le une alle altre nell’obiettivo comune di perpetuare i valori storici e architettonici di cui il monumento è depositario. Uno studio completo non può che essere effettuato mediante l’applicazione e l’integrazione di una vasta gamma di tecniche di rilievo, distruttive e non, mirate all’analisi delle strutture, allo studio dei terreni di fondazione e del suolo, senza tralasciare la valutazione degli effetti ambientali. Coniugando la tecnica avanzata del rilievo eseguito con il laser scanner con le indagini tematiche che si sviluppano attraverso la lettura stratigrafi ca verticale si conseguono risultati importanti per comprendere la complessità storico-costruttiva del monumento e quindi utili per il progetto di conservazione.

    The  Two  Towers  and  Accursio  Palace

    Restoration  is  an interdiscipline connecting both historical-humanistic and scientifi ambits that work in synergy and complete each other by having the same purpose: to perpetuate the historical and architectonic substance of which a monument is depositary. With the aim of working consciously both about the knowledge of the manufacture and to plan the conservation and a new use of monuments, inter-disciplinarity is a fundamental premise. Through the conjugation of laser scanner survey together with thematic investigation that develop by means of a vertical stratigraphic reading  (analysis  and  comprehension  it  is  possible  to  understand the historical-constructive complexity of monuments.

    In January 1988, scientists from over 25 organizations in 13 countries and territories cooperated in the largest GPS campaign in the world to date. A total of 43 GPS receivers collected approximately 590 station-days of data in American Samoa, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Sweden, United States, West Germany, and Venezuela. The experiment was entitled CASA Uno. Scientific goals of the project include measurements of strain in the northern Andes, subduction rates for the Cocos and Nazca plates beneath Central and South America, and relative motion between the Caribbean plate and South America. A second set of measurements are planned in 1991 and should provide preliminary estimates of crustal deformation and plate motion rates in the region.

  19. The Studio Motif in Henri Matisse’s Paintings and The Influence of The Red Studio on Painters of The Second Half of The Twentieth Century

    2009-12-01

    The most prominent Slovenian modernist painter, Gabrijel Stupica, did not directly rely on The Red Studio, but is linked with Matisse because of the fact that Stupica entered into modernism only with his picture of the studio as a two-dimensional space. In his pictures of studio interiors, Marjan Dovjak showed a sense for ignoring the depth of space, distorted proportions, and decorative forms similar to Matisse in The Red Studio. Bogdan Borčič also paid homage to Matisse’s masterpiece with his great monochrome pictures of studios. An examination of the studio motif by American and Slovene painters therefore shows that The Red Studio has preserved its inspirational power to today and will therefore remain an interesting topic for future researchers.

    A 9-month randomized open comparative trial was performed of efficacy and safety of combined treatment with prostamol Uno and tamsulosin followed by monotherapy with prostamol Uno. A total of 58 patients with prostatic adenoma (PA) treated with prostamol Uno in combination with tamsulosin were divided into two groups: 28 patients continued the above combined therapy, 30 patients were switched to monotherapy with prostamol Uno. All the patients were examined in the course of 4 visits according to standard protocol requesting information on the disease history, complaints, digital rectal examination, IPSS questionnaire, QOL, uroflowmetry with test for residual urine, transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate, blood test for PSA. The results of the trial show reduction of IPSS and QOL indices in 87% patients. QOL improved both in group 1 after 3 months of combined treatment and in group 2 who continued on monotherapy with prostamol Uno to the end of month 9 (p 0.05). Prostamol Uno was especially safe for hypotensive patients and those on antihypertensive therapy. After discontinuation of tamsulosin 100% patients of group 2 stopped exhibiting symptoms of retrograde ejaculation. None cases of a hypotonic reaction to the drug were registered. Mean cost of a course of therapy in group 1 to that of group 2 was 1:3.16. Thus, pharmacotherapy with prostamol Uno in moderate symptoms of PA is comparable in efficacy with combination prostamol Uno + tamsulosin, is safe and cost-effective.

    Riassunto Negli ultimi anni abbiamo assistito a un fiorire di novità cliniche e scientifiche sulla celiachia (CE), ma forse la novità più importante che influenzerà il futuro della ricerca e della clinica in questo campo riguarda la storia naturale della malattia. Per molti anni si è creduto che la predisposizione genetica e l’esposizione al glutine fossero necessarie e sufficienti allo sviluppo della CE. Studi recenti, però suggeriscono che la perdita di tolleranza al glutine possa apparire in qualsiasi momento della vita a seguito di altri elementi. Inoltre, diversi fattori ambientali conosciuti per il loro ruolo nell’influenzare la composizione della microflora intestinale sono anche stati considerati legati allo sviluppo della CE. Tra questi fattori sono inclusi la modalità di parto, la dieta dell’infante e l’uso di antibiotici. A tutt’oggi, nessuno studio longitudinale di ampia scala ha determinato se e come la composizione del microbioma e il suo profilo metabolomico possano influenzare la perdita di tolleranza al glutine e il successivo sviluppo della CE in soggetti geneticamente predisposti. In questo articolo descriviamo uno studio prospettico, multicentrico e longitudinale su infanti a rischio per la CE che utilizzerà diverse tecniche per approfondire il ruolo che il microbioma intestinale ha durante i primi passaggi dello sviluppo della malattia autoimmune.

    "OBJECTIVES: to identify the differences among patients of general practictioners (GPs) in both Tuscany Region (Central Italy) and Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) Region (Northern Italy), which are different for drinking cultures, as to motivation of consultation, hazardous drinking and alcohol dependence, health problems, and use of health services. cross-sectional study by means of both a medical examination and a subsequent structured interview carried out with a questionnaire. Data were analysed using chi-square test, logistic regression and differences in prevalence. the study was implemented between July and November 2013 on a sample of 492 patients of 30 GPs in FVG, and 451 patients of 25 GPs in Tuscany. although patients in FVG were less likely to drink alcohol (66.7% vs. 70.9%), consumed lower amounts of alcohol on average per day per drinker (10.9 vs. 14.5 grams of alcohol), and were less likely to be hazardous drinkers (11.2% vs. 13.8%) compared to patients in Tuscany, they had a 3.6 to 4.7 times higher risk of alcohol dependence. In addition, the prevalence of diseases (in particular hepato-gastrointestinal diseases, hypertension, and psychiatric problems), smoking, and obesity/ overweighting was higher among clients of FVG, which exceed the Tuscan patients by 5-12 percentage points. Compared to Tuscany, FVG patients were more hospitalized and required more help to GPs or other people for their drinking problems. compared to Tuscan patients, GPs' patients in FVG has higher prevalence of alcohol addiction and other diseases, as well as of smoking and overweight/obesity, and higher need for health interventions as to their drinking problems."

    Full Text Available In spite of findings of large-scale clinical trials which showed an overall reduction of morbidity and mortality from coronary heart disease in patients treated with 3-hydroxy-3-metylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase inhibitors (statins, relatively little is still known about the real prevalence of treatment in general practice setting, particularly in patients with a high cardiovascular risk. The objective of this study was to investigate among patients with cardiovascular risk profile estimated according to the Framingham Heart Prediction Risk Study, the percentage of those exposed to statins, and the proportion of patients reaching total cholesterol (TC target levels. A cross-sectional analysis was conducted on a large cohort of patients listed in the administrative databases of the Local Health Unit of Ravenna (total resident population of 356,000. In 2001, every single patient who received a prescription for a statin, and/or with a recorded plasma TC level, and/or with a hospital admission for cardiovascular reasons (identified by ICD-9 code, and/or with a clinical appraisal based on the presence of cardiovascular risk factors, was defined eligible. Sebsequently, pharmaceutical, and nosocomial databases, were cross-linked with that of 50 general practitioners in order to assess the pharmacoutilization of statins on a patient-by-patient basis. A cohort of 9,208 patients with a well documented cardiovascular risk profile were analyzed. The mean age of those patients was 57 (SD=17 years and 42% of them was male. On the basis of raised TC levels and cardiovascular risk profiles, patients for whom a statin treatment was suggested amounted to 7,233. However, the number of those who received statins was significantly lower (n = 1,343, corresponding to 18.6%. In those exposed to statins, just a small group of patients reached a level of TC below 190 mg/dl (n = 271, equivalent to 20.2%. In the group of treated who did not achieve recommended TC target levels, 31.7% (n = 340 of patients was at very high cardiovascular risk. Moreover, among all patients with high plasma TC levels (n=5,890, there was a 45.7% (n = 2,690 who did not received any lipid lowering drug even though they had a high cardiovascular risk profile. Results from large population-based administrative databases suggest a remarkable level of undertreatment among patients with cardiovascular risk factors. Furthermore, many patients did not achieve recommended TC target levels with their statin treatment. Pharmacoutilization of statins in general practice reveals the need of a more careful pursuing of therapeutic goals.

    NH is the most common identifiable cause of ALF in the neonate. LT is the definitive treatment for neonates with NH who have failed medical therapy. Our aim was to determine the outcomes of LT in infants with NH. Patients (less than one yr of age) with NH who were listed for LT and patients who underwent LT between 1994 and 2013 were identified from the UNOS database for analysis. Risk factors for death and graft loss were analyzed by multivariate logistic regression. Thirty-eight infants with NH with a total of 43 transplants were identified. One- and five-yr patient and graft survival were 84.2%, 81.6%, 71.1%, and 68.4%, respectively. The outcomes for NH were not significantly different when compared to the same age-matched recipients with other causes of ALF. There were no statistically significant risk factors identified for graft loss or death. Ninety infants with NH were listed for LT. Reasons for removal included transplanted (49%), death (27%), too sick to transplant (7%), and improved status (13%). LT for infants with NH has a high rate of graft loss and death; however, outcomes are comparable to the same age-matched recipients with other causes of ALF.

    Kansas State University converted its introductory biology course, previously taught as an audio-tutorial (A-T), to a studio format in 1997. We share with others information about the process involved and present assessment data for the studio format course that address 1) student exam performance in A-T and studio; 2) student course grades in A-T and studio; 3) student and instructor perceptions and attitudes for A-T and studio; 4) student performance in subsequent biology courses for A-T and studio; and 5) gains in student learning for the studio course and other traditional lecture/lab courses. Collectively, these measures demonstrate that the studio format is as effective as or more effective (for some measures) than the A-T approach and traditional approaches in providing an effective learning environment. We discuss the issues involved in comparing course formats. PMID:18519615

By tailoring each application to the audience and the task at hand, the required learning curve for new users was greatly reduced. Each case study used OpenStudio, the U.S. Department of Energy's middleware software development kit (SDK). OpenStudio provides an easy interface to the EnergyPlus whole building simulation engine, while extending its capability and providing higher-level functionality such as software interoperability, standards, analysis, and optimization. Each case study is unique in the technology employed to interface with OpenStudio as well as the methods used for user interaction and data presentation. Four case studies are presented.

  15. Fulfill Your Digital Preservation Goals with a Budget Studio

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available In order to fulfill digital preservation goals, many institutions use high-end scanners for in-house scanning of historical print and oversize materials. However, high-end scanners’ prices do not fit in many small institutions’ budget. As digital single-lens reflex (DSLR camera technologies advance and camera prices drop quickly, a budget photography studio can help to achieve institutions’ preservation goals.  This paper compares images delivered by a high-end overhead scanner and a consumer level DSLR camera, discusses pros and cons of using each method, demonstrates how to set up a cost efficient shooting studio, and presents a budget estimate for a studio.

  11. Daylight strategies for architectural studio facilities: the literature review

    Science.gov (United States)

    Othman, Muhammad Anas Bin; Azfahani Ahmad, Nur; Ajis, Azizah Md

    2017-05-01

    The implementation of daylighting strategies in buildings is a common aspect in architecture. However, due to the availability of inexpensive electricity, natural lighting strategies became insignificant, and been overlooked by designers. With the current concern over rapid increment on electricity cost, many designers now try to revitalized daylighting strategies in buildings. This includes educational buildings. In Malaysian cases, it is a norm that universities; especially during lecture and studio sessions, used artificial lighting throughout the day. Definitely, this is not parallel with the “green” aim made by the Government in the Malaysian Plan. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the impact of daylight strategies for educational studios in universities, by maximising the penetration of natural daylight into the space towards creating a more green-conducive studio. The paper review literature about the types, criteria and benefits of daylight strategies. This paper also presented a pilot study that has been performed in one university in Perak, Malaysia, by selecting architectural studios as the main subject.

  8. Leading institutional change: Implementing Studio in physics and beyond

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kohl, Patrick; Kuo, H. Vincent

    2013-04-01

    The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) teaches its first-year calculus-based introductory physics courses (Physics I and Physics II) using a hybrid of lecture and Studio physics. This model was first implemented in Physics I in 1997, and was established in Physics II in the fall of 2007. In this talk, we highlight the stages of the transformation from traditional to Studio, highlighting what has worked and what has not, and describing methods for assessment and evaluation. Results suggest that Studio has increased student performance and satisfaction despite an aggressive expansion of class sizes in the past few years. Gains have been concentrated mostly in problem-solving skills and exam performance (as opposed to conceptual survey gains), in contrast to what has sometimes been seen in other studies. Most recently, we as a department have been capitalizing on our successes with Studio physics to take a leadership role in disseminating advanced educational methods throughout CSM, both vertically (into upper division physics courses) and horizontally (into various departments outside of physics). We will briefly describe progress so far.

  17. Interactive Ray Tracing for Virtual TV Studio Applications

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Philipp Slusallek

    2005-12-01

    Full Text Available In the last years, the well known ray tracing algorithm gained new popularity with the introduction of interactive ray tracing methods. The high modularity and the ability to produce highly realistic images make ray tracing an attractive alternative to raster graphics hardware.Interactive ray tracing also proved its potential in the field of Mixed Reality rendering and provides novel methods for seamless integration of real and virtual content. Actor insertion methods, a subdomain of Mixed Reality and closely related to virtual television studio techniques, can use ray tracing for achieving high output quality in conjunction with appropriate visual cues like shadows and reflections at interactive frame rates.In this paper, we show how interactive ray tracing techniques can provide new ways of implementing future virtual studio applications.

I call for a consideration of how the staging of nightlife functions as an art form, relying on the dual practices of creation and curation. I provide a close reading of the tightly-staged Studio 54 experience, focusing on the club's infamously tight door policy and production of fabulousness to reveal what scholars and ethnographers of nightlife can learn from approaching nightlife as an artistic production. This approach can also inform a nightlife-focused research agenda.

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to search and find methods of fostering creativity or ideas relating to creativity in teaching the arch-design studio. Teaching creativity through its methods will be making the students grounded in designing with creativity ideas and therefore we can have professionals that design and build with satisfaction, safety and complementary. It means we can have real buildings and places that satisfy our clients, the society and in harmony with the environment. Although there are similarities in the curricula of training architects all over the world, but educators go about it in their own convenient and suitable ways and styles. The ideas of creativity have been part of architecture from the onset, but are not deligently applied and also not formally incorporated in the curricula of training. The topic is also very relevant and timely as arch-educators and other stakeholders are of the opinion that something has to be done to improve the ways and methods of training architects, especially the teaching of the arch-design studio with regards to creativity. Through exploration of literature and interviews (physical and telephone call this paper finds methods of stimulating creativity ideas in the teaching of arch-design studio. Some of the methods of motivating creativity found in teaching the arch-design studio are: analogy, metaphors, biomimicry, brainstorming, attribute listing, mental map, TRIZ, restrictions, charrette, browsing, excursions, focus groups, other peoples viewpoints, using crazy ideas, using experts, visualizing a goal, working with dreams and images and giving students design tools such as drawings CAD and model making.

  12. The Creative Studio Practice of Contemporary Dance Music Sampling Composers

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Justin Morey

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper seeks to investigate some of the considerations that inform and help to determine the creative studio practice of contemporary sampling composers. Collaborative writing and production, specifically the co-opted collaboration implicit in using samples, will be assessed to consider those aspects of the production process which the participants consider to be authorial. These considerations include acts of listening, selecting and editing. In examining these matters this paper places emphasis on how sampling composers actively constrain their options in order to promote a creative relationship with their musical material. Techniques such as, firstly, traditional sample manipulation, secondly, the use of a sample as an initial building block for a composition from which the sample is then removed and, finally, live performance in the studio which is subsequently cut up and treated as a sample, will be discussed. Case studies, in the form of semi-structured interviews with sampling composers, will be drawn upon to assess approaches to and views about these forms of studio composition.

    Full Text Available This paper discusses the activity of play in design education among university students with interdisciplinary background. The study subscribes to social theories of learning and takes into account an international summer school which brought visual communication design and architecture students and instructors together at the intersection of design in Istanbul asking such questions: How can student learning activity in design education are fostered? How can studio experience be formulated to cultivate the understanding of place? In this study the international group acted as a learning community. Istanbul served at her best offering her potential for making connections through exploration and discovery. The paper casts student tasks formulated as playful graphic expression and reflects student statements, unfolding connections made across filters of space, time and movement in the working process of visual design studio. The particular design studio experiences uncover how students reconstructed their own texts. The study as a result releases the fact that one might best come to know a place through the activity of play and this kind of knowing is one that constantly evolving.

    OpenStudio is a free, open source Software Development Kit (SDK) and application suite for performing building energy modeling and analysis. The OpenStudio Parametric Analysis Tool has been extended to allow cloud-based simulation of multiple OpenStudio models parametrically related to a baseline model. This paper describes the new cloud-based simulation functionality and presents a model cali-bration case study. Calibration is initiated by entering actual monthly utility bill data into the baseline model. Multiple parameters are then varied over multiple iterations to reduce the difference between actual energy consumption and model simulation results, as calculated and visualized by billing period and by fuel type. Simulations are per-formed in parallel using the Amazon Elastic Cloud service. This paper highlights model parameterizations (measures) used for calibration, but the same multi-nodal computing architecture is available for other purposes, for example, recommending combinations of retrofit energy saving measures using the calibrated model as the new baseline.

    OpenStudio development efforts have been focused on providing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) where users are able to extend OpenStudio without the need to compile the open source libraries. This paper will discuss the basic purposes and functionalities of the core libraries that have been wrapped with APIs including the Building Model, Results Processing, Advanced Analysis, UncertaintyQuantification, and Data Interoperability through Translators. Several building energy modeling applications have been produced using OpenStudio's API and Software Development Kits (SDK) including the United States Department of Energy's Asset ScoreCalculator, a mobile-based audit tool, an energy design assistance reporting protocol, and a portfolio scale incentive optimization analysismethodology. Each of these software applications will be discussed briefly and will describe how the APIs were leveraged for various uses including high-level modeling, data transformations from detailed building audits, error checking/quality assurance of models, and use of high-performance computing for mass simulations.

  16. Cultural schema and design activity in an architectural design studio

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gökçe Ketizmen Önal

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available Research on the cognitive activities and on the structure and quality of knowledge flow involved in architectural design education is increasing. These studies generally focus on the interaction between student and instructor, including processes such as producing ideas, solving display problems, and integrating design strategies. These studies commonly include computational evaluations and confirmation of the coding of knowledge. They may also include the determination of designer׳s thoughts and cognitive actions of design process, as well as the analysis and digitization of verbal protocols during the design process. In most of these studies, the designer׳s cultural and psychological components are not considered. Accordingly, research on the effects of designers’ cultural schema on design activity in design studios is limited. This study aimed to solve this problem by analyzing the relationship between design activity and the designer׳s cultural schema in a design studio. We performed an experimental study based on a specific conceptual framework and a research model aimed at identifying the relationships among cultural schemas, the architectural design process, and design studios.

  17. Bridging the gap between building science and design studios

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Papamichael, Konstantinos; Pal, Vineeta

    2002-02-06

    Design studios and building science courses have been conducted independent of each other, mainly due to a lack of tools that allow quick and easy consideration of building science criteria, such as comfort and energy requirements, during the design process. Existing tools are not user-friendly and their use requires significant effort in gaining familiarity with the input requirements, understanding the modeling assumptions and interpreting the output. This paper is about the Building Design Advisor (BDA), an evolving computer-based tool intended to bridge the gap between design studios and building science considerations by addressing the above-mentioned limitations of existing tools. BDA allows automatic preparation of input files to multiple simulation tools while the user is working in a CAD environment. BDA automatically activates the relevant simulation tools when the user selects performance parameters to be computed and provides the results in a graphical form, allowing comparison of multiple design options with respect to multiple performance criteria. The paper includes considerations for the use of the BDA in the design studio and ends with a description of the current development efforts and future plans.

    2014-01-01

    Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium associated with various infectious diseases. Not only has the bacterium been detected in sports environments, the reported incidences of S. aureus infections have steadily increased in athletic teams. However, in spite of similarities between sports and dance facilities, to our knowledge no previous study has examined the presence of this bacterium in the dance environment. We hypothesized that S. aureus would be present in a university's dance studios, and that it would be extant in higher concentrations inside versus outside the studios. Using common microbiological culturing methods, samples were gathered from floors and barres in three studios of a single university, as well as from outside floors and railings near the studios and a conference room used by dancers. Confirming our hypothesis, we detected S. aureus in every dance studio sample (0.03 to 0.38 cfu/cm 2 ). Supporting our second hypothesis, we found that average S. aureus concentrations from the three studios were significantly higher compared to both outside and conference room samples (P ≤ 0.001). The latter two locations did not yield any S. aureus concentrations. Control samples developed as expected. The results of this study suggest that S. aureus bacteria are common on the flooring and barres of university dance studios, with the bacterial concentrations possibly dependent on the hours of usage of these surfaces. Whether the presence of S. aureus in dance studios presents a health risk to dancers should be studied further.

    Kohl, Patrick; Kuo, Vincent

    2009-05-01

    The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) has taught its first-semester introductory physics course using a hybrid lecture/Studio Physics format for several years. Based on this previous success, over the past 18 months we have converted the second semester of our traditional calculus-based introductory physics course (Physics II) to a Studio Physics format. In this talk, we describe the recent history of the Physics II course and of Studio at Mines, discuss the PER-based improvements that we are implementing, and characterize our progress via several metrics, including pre/post Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism (CSEM) scores, Colorado Learning About Science Survey scores (CLASS), failure rates, and exam scores. We also report on recent attempts to involve students in the department's Senior Design program with our course. Our ultimate goal is to construct one possible model for a practical and successful transition from a lecture course to a Studio (or Studio-like) course.

    Full Text Available In design studio projects we often see schemes with inspired, yet unvalidated, gestural sketches related to wishful green strategies. Yellow and blue magic arrows represent hypotheses about the behavior of daylight and/or air flow in and about buildings. This paper provides an overview of The Green Studio Handbook, recently published as a resource for designers seeking clear guidelines for integrating green design strategies into the conceptual and schematic phases of design. The book contains a discussion of the integration of green strategies and how building form, orientation, and spatial layout are critical to the proper performance of certain green strategies; 40 green design strategies in six broad topic areas, each providing acatalog of information for common strategies that must be implemented at the schematic design phase; and nine case studies that show how various green strategies work together in a finished building. This paper provides excerpts of several design strategies and one case study and suggests a variety of ways that the book may be used.Keywords: green design, case studies, education, schematic design

Un primo studio basato sulla somministrazione di un questionario rivolto a dieci fondatori e amministratori di gruppi online ha investigato le motivazioni, le finalità e i livelli di partecipazione. Un secondo studio, che ha riguardato i membri di cinque gruppi in Facebook, ha comportato la somministrazione di un questionario volto a esplorare alcune ipotesi di ricerca relative alla relazione tra tipologie di gruppi e dinamiche socio-relazionali, da un lato, e implicazioni professionali, dall’altro. I risultati mostrano che i manager di gruppi tendono a fondarli non solo per la condivisione di risorse professionali ma anche per ragioni etico- partecipative o sociali. I dati rilevati permettono anche di riscontrare l’esistenza di differenze tra diverse tipologie di gruppi, oltre all’attivazione di processi continui di contaminazione tra reale e virtuale in grado di dar vita a nuove iniziative professionali.

    Lee, Duck-Joo; Hwang, Chang-Jeon; Ko, Duck-Kon; Kim, Jae-Wook

    1995-01-01

    Three different schemes are employed to solve the benchmark problem. The first one is a conventional TVD-MUSCL (Monotone Upwind Schemes for Conservation Laws) scheme. The second scheme is a UNO3-ACM (Uniformly Non-Oscillatory Artificial Compression Method) scheme. The third scheme is an optimized compact finite difference scheme modified by us: the 4th order Runge Kutta time stepping, the 4th order pentadiagonal compact spatial discretization with the maximum resolution characteristics. The problems of category 1 are solved by using the second (UNO3-ACM) and third (Optimized Compact) schemes. The problems of category 2 are solved by using the first (TVD3) and second (UNO3-ACM) schemes. The problem of category 5 is solved by using the first (TVD3) scheme. It can be concluded from the present calculations that the Optimized Compact scheme and the UN03-ACM show good resolutions for category 1 and category 2 respectively.

    Full Text Available Educational Technology and Design 879 is a graduate course that introduces students to the basics of video design and production. In an attempt to improve the learning experience for students a redesign of the course was implemented for the summer of 2011 that incorporated an authentic design studio model. The design studio approach is based on the idea of working and learning in a shared space. Offering a course that employs a studio design model provides the opportunity for exchanging ideas, sharing artifacts, and developing community more deeply and more quickly. What makes this course offering different is the combination of authentic tasks incorporating both online and face-to-face design studio environments. This paper will describe how a studio design approach combined with an authentic learning design was implemented and what was learned. Educational Technology and Design 879 est un cours d'études supérieures initiant les étudiants aux rudiments de la conception et de la production vidéo.

    Esner, Rachel

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available This article explores the two series of visits to the artist's studio that appeared in the famed French illustrated magazine L'Illustration in the 1850s and in 1886. An in-depth examination of both the texts and images reveals the verbal and visual tropes used to characterize the artists and their spaces, linking these to broader notions of "the artist" – his moral characteristics, behaviors, and artistic practice – as well as to the politics of the art world and the (bourgeois ideology of L'Illustration. The aim is to uncover not only the language but also the mechanics of the "mediatization" of the image of the artist in this crucial period.

  14. Exploring the Physics of Music with Temperament Studio

    Science.gov (United States)

    Durfee, Dallin; Colton, John

    2016-03-01

    The physics of waves, resonance, harmonics, and beats has determined how musical instruments are tuned, and has even affected the kinds of music written in different time periods. The laws of physics make it impossible for any fixed scale to have perfect consonance for all chords in all keys, and as a result, various musical scales, or temperaments, have been developed and used throughout history. The study of musical temperament is a rich application of wave physics. It ties several principles together in a context which can be very motivating for students. Furthermore, the topic is accessible to students in introductory classes. We have developed an open source application called Temperament Studio which allows students to explore musical temperament and to hear and measure the effects predicted by wave physics.

    Alach, Bob; Clark, Lou; Carman, William; Case, Alex

    2003-04-01

    The Sound Recording Technology program at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell required design of a space that could serve three functions: a critical listening classroom for 30 students, a live room for the department's premier 24 track recording studio, and a 5.1 surround sound mix room. Accomplishing all of the above required a re-evaluation of room shape and treatments and aggressive use of variable acoustics. In addition, all the usual culprits of HVAC noise and vibration, limited space, a constrained budget, and a difficult to renovate reinforced concrete building added to the challenge. This paper reviews the key design and renovation challenges associated with completing this room, opened for use by students and faculty in the Spring 2003 semester.

    We have written a series of interactive demonstrations and simulations for introductory Electricity and Magnetism. These programs are written in the Java (TM) language and are delivered via the World-Wide Web to students either in the classroom or at home. The combination of such interactive illustrations with the Web's hypermedia capability is of significant value in the creation of network-distributable useful courseware. We are using these applets at Rensselaer and are evaluating their effectiveness as components of the instruction of Studio Physics II (Introduction to Electricity and Magnetism). Two of the applets allow the student to explore two-dimensional electric and magnetic fields by drawing field lines and equipotentials, evaluating divergence and curl, and calculating loop and surface integrals for Maxwell's laws. Another applet illustrates Snell's law of refraction, and another is an optical bench with movable lenses and a movable object.

  20. OpenStudio: A Platform for Ex Ante Incentive Programs

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Roth, Amir; Brackney, Larry; Parker, Andrew; Beitel, Annette

    2016-08-26

    Many utilities operate programs that provide ex ante (up front) incentives for building energy conservation measures (ECMs). A typical incentive program covers two kinds of ECMs. ECMs that deliver similar savings in different contexts are associated with pre-calculated 'deemed' savings values. ECMs that deliver different savings in different contexts are evaluated on a 'custom' per-project basis. Incentive programs often operate at less than peak efficiency because both deemed ECMs and custom projects have lengthy and effort-intensive review processes--deemed ECMs to gain confidence that they are sufficiently context insensitive, custom projects to ensure that savings are claimed appropriately. DOE's OpenStudio platform can be used to automate ex ante processes and help utilities operate programs more efficiently, consistently, and transparently, resulting in greater project throughput and energy savings. A key concept of the platform is the OpenStudio Measure, a script that queries and transforms building energy models. Measures can be simple or surgical, e.g., applying different transformations based on space-type, orientation, etc. Measures represent ECMs explicitly and are easier to review than ECMs that are represented implicitly as the difference between a with-ECM and without-ECM models. Measures can be automatically applied to large numbers of prototype models--and instantiated from uncertainty distributions--facilitating the large scale analysis required to develop deemed savings values. For custom projects, Measures can also be used to calibrate existing building models, to automatically create code baseline models, and to perform quality assurance screening.

However, the chroma keying process in virtual studios requires color cues, such as blue background, to segment foreground objects to be inserted into images and videos. Chroma keying limits the application of vision-based tracking methods in virtual studios since the background cannot provide enough feature information. Furthermore, the conventional sensor-based tracking approaches suffer from the jitter, drift or expensive computation due to the characteristics of individual sensor system. Therefore, the SLAM techniques from the mobile robot area are first investigated and adapted to the camera tracking area. Then, a sensor-based SLAM extension algorithm for two dimensional (2D) camera tracking in virtual studio is described. Also, a technique called map adjustment is proposed to increase the accuracy and efficiency of the algorithm. The feasibility and robustness of the algorithm is shown by experiments. The simulation results demonstrate that the sensor-based SLAM algorithm can satisfy the fundamental 2D camera tracking requirement in virtual studio environment.

    Full Text Available The need for data on environmental conditions around has been encouraging people to create a tool that can measure environmental conditions. One thing that could explain the environmental condition is temperature. In this study, designed a device that can measure the temperature in the incubator hatching chicken eggs and transmit data such as temperature telemetry. These devices can transmit data remotely and at any time the data is needed, making it easier for someone to monitor chicken egg incubator without always keeping. This research was done by designing, manufacturing, and testing telemetry system which consists of two main parts namely the transmitter and receiver. In the transmitter section consists of components temperature sensors, Arduino Uno R3 and RF Module Board 433 MHz, while the receiver section consists of an Arduino Uno R3, laptops, and RF 433 MHz Module Board. The main function of Arduino Uno R3 is as processing data from temperature sensors and sends the data to the receiver. Based on research results when transmitter and receiver are placed in ambient conditions without barriers (there are gaps, the system can run properly and there is no error in the distance range up to 8 meters. Meanwhile, when the transmitter and receiver placed entirely unobstructed walls, obtained by the system can not run well, although the distance is close to 1 meter.

Camtasia Studio has been proposed as suitable applied software for doing so. It is a multi-media, user-friendly environment, providing the customers with the variety of possibilities for editing PowerPoint presentations with the introduction of audio, video and different animations, in order to make teaching/learning content more interesting and to point out the most important issues. It allows computer screen video capturing, and adding of audio and numerous animated effects to it, as well as augmenting video recordings into the Camtasia project(s. Even though the proposed software tool possesses a broad palette of advanced features for recording and editing “lively” and edifying recordings, within this paper only brief descriptions of “reviving” classical PowerPoint presentations, taking the screen captures over Transas demo ECDIS software, and their editing is presented. Several examples of instructional recordings concerning ECDIS operational basis, and possibility of students’ self-evaluation have been given, too.

    Full Text Available In 2011, the Departments of Architecture, Physics and Engineering began the development of a small Passivhaus standard, renewable energy self-sufficient studio at the University Botanical Gardens in Dundee. The prototype was conceived as an experimental, integrated technical platform to monitor the performance of an ultra-low-energy consumption, energy positive building in the Scottish climate, and understand user behaviour in relation to managing energy in-use and reducing occupant’s energy consumption. The building fabric has been constructed using regional sustainable materials, including a low-thermal bridging timber kit relying on Scottish small cross-section timber and a novel foam concrete (air entrained slab foundation. While further work is required to complete the installation of the renewable energy system, predictive modelling indicates that energy autonomy can be largely achieved. With the recent introduction of the new Passivhaus 2009 criteria in October 2015, this project provides an insight into the practical application of an autarkic energy system in a northern European climate. The following paper describes the research rationale, the processes and decision making in the development of the formal and technical design of the building and discusses our current thinking in the design and quantification of the energy system.

    Full Text Available Molti manufatti storici si trovano in stretto rapporto col paesaggio, basti pensare ai numerosi esempi di ville, castelli, fortezze o borghi fortificati in Italia ed in Europa. La cura, la gestione e la valorizzazione dell'uno va a ripercuotersi sull'altro, creando una sinergia di cui il caso di studio del castello di Fosdinovo, in provincia di Massa Carrara, e dei suoi giardini è un esempio. Questo saggio rielabora i contenuti della tesi di Master in Paesaggistica discussa nell'Aprile 2013 (Università degli Studi di Firenze, UniSer di Pistoia. La ricerca si è posta l'obiettivo di analizzare gli aspetti della vulnerabilità tipica dei manufatti storici, prevedendo interventi progettuali di “valorizzazione sostenibile” che possano migliorare  le condizioni di conservazione, senza tralasciare gli aspetti della manutenzione. Tale approccio, analitico e progettuale, può costituire linee guida e piani di gestione da poter seguire per altri manufatti storici, comparabili per caratteristiche e criticità.  Many historical artifacts are in close relationship with landscape: there are many examples of villas, castles, fortresses and fortified villages in Italy and Europe. The care, management and enhancement of these artifacts, have repercussions in landscape and vice versa, creating a synergy in which the case of Fosdinovo Castle and its gardens is an example. This article elaborates the contents of the Master's thesis in Landscape architecture discussed in April 2013 (University of Florence, Uniser of Pistoia. The research has the objective to analyze the aspects of the typical vulnerability in these artifacts, providing project interventions of "sustainable exploitation" that can improve the conservation conditions, without neglecting the aspects of maintenance. The analytical and design approach, can set up guidelines and management plans useful for other historical artifacts, comparable in features and criticality.

    The effect of the tracking network on long (greater than 100 km) GPS baseline estimates was estimated using various subsets of the global tracking network initiated by the first Central and South America (CASA Uno) experiment. It was found that best results could be obtained with a global tacking network consisting of three U.S. stations, two sites in the southwestern Pacific, and two sites in Europe. In comparison with smaller subsets, this global network improved the baseline repeatability, the resolution of carrier phase cycle ambiguities, and formal errors of the orbit estimates.

    Full Text Available This paper examines how to leverage the design studio learning environment throughout long-term Digital Design education in order to support students to progress from tactical, well-defined, device-centric routine design, to confidently design sustainable solutions for strategic, complex, problems for a wide range of devices and platforms in the digital space. We present a framework derived from literature on design, creativity, and theories on learning that: (a implements a theory of formal learning sequences as a user-centered design process in the studio; and (b describes design challenge progressions in the design studio environment modeled in seven dimensions. The framework can be used as a tool for designing, evaluating, and communicating course progressions within – and between series of – design studio courses. This approach is evaluated by implementing a formal learning sequence framework in a series of design studio courses that progress in an undergraduate design-oriented Informatics program. Reflections from students, teachers, and external clients indicate high student motivation and learning goal achievement, high teacher satisfaction and skill development, and high satisfaction among external clients.

    2017-06-01

    In this study, we explore the strategic self-regulatory and motivational characteristics of students in studio-mode physics courses at three universities with varying student populations and varying levels of success in their studio-mode courses. We survey students using questions compiled from several existing questionnaires designed to measure students' study strategies, attitudes toward and motivations for learning physics, organization of scientific knowledge, experiences outside the classroom, and demographics. Using a person-centered approach, we utilize cluster analysis methods to group students into learning profiles based on their individual responses to better understand the strategies and motives of algebra-based studio physics students. Previous studies have identified five distinct learning profiles across several student populations using similar methods. We present results from first-semester and second-semester studio-mode introductory physics courses across three universities. We identify these five distinct learning profiles found in previous studies to be present within our population of introductory physics students. In addition, we investigate interactions between these learning profiles and student demographics. We find significant interactions between a student's learning profile and their experience with high school physics, major, gender, grade expectation, and institution. Ultimately, we aim to use this method of analysis to take the characteristics of students into account in the investigation of successful strategies for using studio methods of physics instruction within and across institutions.

This study uses qualitative research methods with interpretive phenomenological foundation of thinking, which is oriented to truth that is subjective to informants, which consists of a tattoo studio tattooist and managers who have more than five years of experience, and the recipient women and men under the age of 30. The development of post-modern lifestyle is synonymous with consumer culture, which affects the orientation of recipients towards tattoos as works of art, a medium of expression, search for identity, and part of fashion accessories, therefore tattoos become works of art that have commodity value. The existing tattoo studios already have market segments, target markets, positioning, and clear marketing strategy, however there are some tattoo studios that do not determine their market segments and target goals. They tend to flow and follow the situation and market conditions. Several factors that affect the condition and management of tattoo studios today are environmental factors, resource constraints, and tattoos as art products that are homogeneous.

    RESUMEN

    El objetivo de este trabajo fue analizar de forma comparativa en Minibasket el número de situaciones de un atacante contra un defensor que se producían al jugar con la línea que define la zona del área restringida como línea de tres puntos con respecto a una línea de tres puntos rectangular. Participaron 67 jugadoras (edad: M = 10.39 años, SD = 0.67, de seis equipos diferentes. De estas jugadoras se obtuvieron 1642 posesiones de balón en un primer campeonato y 1669 posesiones de balón en un segundo. Se utilizó la metodología observacional. Tras formar a cuatro observadores, la fiabilidad del registro obtenida a través del coeficiente de correlación mediante el estadístico de Pearson, alcanzó valores entre .83 y .93. Las diferencias significativas encontradas entre los dos campeonatos (p = .019, revelaron que al jugar con la línea de tres puntos delimitada por la zona restringida se consiguen un 3.9% más situaciones de un atacante contra un defensor, lo que puede favorecer en mayor medida el desarrollo de la inteligencia ante la toma de decisión. No obstante, el número de situaciones de uno contra uno en ambos campeonatos se considera escaso. A partir de los resultados, se indican una serie de recomendaciones sobre el reglamento.

    Examination of new methods of treatment of parodontitis is stipulated by the significant increase in the number of patients with parodontitis. Experiments were conducted on white outbred male rats weighing 150-200 gr, which were divided into three groups. The first group was a reference one (n=20). The second group includes induced parodontitis (n=15) and the third group includes induced parodontitis with the treatment of uno de gato (n=19). We simulated parodontitis in the following way: on the lower nippers in the field of a neck we attached a ligature causing mechanical damage. We used a intramuscular injection of Nembutal as a means of narcotization (0.1 ml-10 g per mass). The present work is dedicated to morphological studies of the structures of damaged parodontium during its treatment with a phyto-preparation uno de gato. The undertaken treatment has demonstrated partial restoration of the mucous tunic of the gum. Newly formed capillaries were found in the connective tissue. The fibroblasts are mostly mature and collagen-producing. Thus, the study has demonstrated that there is a certain tendency of the tissue restoration and the treatment has produced the best therapeutic results.

Le risposte ottenute hanno evidenziato un uso esteso e continuo del cellulare per scrivere e rispondere a messaggi, sia a lezione sia durante le attività di studio. Nel gruppo di studenti da noi incontrati risulta essere diffusa l’opinione che fare multitasking, in particolare tramite la ricezione/produzione di messaggi, non abbia effetti sulla qualità dell’apprendimento, ma solo sul tempo dello studio. I partecipanti dichiarano di preferire ambienti privi di distrazioni, ma attribuiscono una valenza positiva alla possibilità di rimanere in relazione continua con la propria rete di contatti.

    Full Text Available The courses of design studio are the most weighted elements in education as an essential part of interior architecture education. There are areas where thinking and design skills of the students are improved yet it is different from other courses. Increased number of students for each academic member in the project courses conducted through a mentor system has resulted in failure to sustain project-oriented education actively and reduced the productivity quality of education. Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to address the educational methods applied in various forms in the design studio courses of Interior Architecture departments in Turkey.

    Full Text Available Il lavoro che proponiamo tratta di una ricerca sul periodo adolescenziale e, in particolare, delle relazioni che gli adolescenti sviluppano in abito scolastico. La ricerca si è sviluppata su un piano multidimensionale influenzato da variabili personali come lo sviluppo dell’identità; variabili relazionali come il rapporto che lo studente struttura con la famiglia e la scuola, ed ancora il rapporto tra i genitori e gli insegnanti; variabili economico-culturali quali le caratteristiche dell’ambiente socio-educativo. In sintesi i risultati indicano che gli studenti con basso profilo identitario mostrano difficoltà nell’adattamento scolastico e nell’accettazione del proprio corpo; studenti con relazioni familiari conflittuali manifestano ridotta maturità emotiva e scarso adattamento familiare. Inoltre, la percezione negativa che i genitori hanno dei loro ruoli all’interno della famiglia e un basso livello di regolazione emotiva dello studente spesso determinano disagio scolastico. Attraverso questa indagine si è voluto esplorare il valore e l’influenza del contesto socio-educativo ed emotivo come passo essenziale nella conoscenza del disadattamento scolastico.

  6. Moss ciliated protozoa as bioindicators. A study on the urban area of Pisa (Italy); Protozoi ciliati del muschio come biondicatori. Uno studio nell'area urbana di Pisa

    Samples of moss were collected, every month for 7 months, from five zones of Pisa (S2, S3, S4, S5, S6) and a woody zone (S1) as control. For each sample the type and the number of the ciliate species as well as the number of individuals for each species were determined. Lead content was also measured. The data were statistically elaborated and compared. The diversity Shannon index (H) was calculated to determine the health state of ciliate communities. In any case an inverse correlation between H and the lead content was reported; the highest the H value, the lowest the lead content and vice versa. On the basis of the results here reported the use of Ciliates as biondicators appears suitable for the control of urban soil. An analysis like this appears advantageous as it is rather simple and cheap and allows to determine the possible variations in a real time. [Italian] Sono stati analizzati campioni di muschio prelevati, con cadenza mensile per 7 mesi, in 5 stazioni di Pisa (S2, S3, S4, S5, S6) e da una zona boscosa (S1), come controllo. Per ogni campione si e' proceduto all'identificazione dei Ciliati presenti, al conteggio delle specie e del numero di individui per specie, nonche' alla misurazione del piombo presente. I dati sono stati confrontati dopo elaborazione statistica. L'indice della diversita' di Shannon ha fornito informazioni sulla salute della comunita' dei Protozoi delle varie stazioni. In ogni caso risulta una correlazione inversa tra i valori dell'indice di Shannon e la quantita' di piombo: S5, la stazione piu' esposta al traffico, risulta quella piu' degradata. L'uso dei Ciliati come biondicatori risulta quindi appropriato e vantaggioso considerando che e' semplice, poco costoso e permette di valutare in tempi reali variazioni nell'ambiente.

    Full Text Available Per il primo Wittgenstein etica ed estetica erano tutt’uno. Scopo del saggio è fornire un’interpretazione di questa concezione. Esaminando il modo in cui è proposta nel Tractatus e considerando alcune annotazioni dei Quaderni 1914-1916 si evidenzia che l’unità di etica ed estetica è in un modo di vedere il mondo per cui esso non appare come fonte di limitazione. L’etica è un’estensione al mondo - alla vita - della capacità di conferire significato che nell’arte si realizza nei riguardi di oggetti particolari. Affermando l’unità di etica ed estetica Wittgenstein attira l’attenzione sul fatto che la radice dell’etica è in un certo modo di vedere le cose, in un atteggiamento verso la vita. Si tratta della prospettiva di un valore non connesso a come il mondo è e che è evocato dalla meraviglia per l’esistenza del mondo.

  11. Some tests of wet tropospheric calibration for the CASA Uno Global Positioning System experiment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dixon, T. H.; Wolf, S. Kornreich

    1990-01-01

    Wet tropospheric path delay can be a major error source for Global Positioning System (GPS) geodetic experiments. Strategies for minimizing this error are investigted using data from CASA Uno, the first major GPS experiment in Central and South America, where wet path delays may be both high and variable. Wet path delay calibration using water vapor radiometers (WVRs) and residual delay estimation is compared with strategies where the entire wet path delay is estimated stochastically without prior calibration, using data from a 270-km test baseline in Costa Rica. Both approaches yield centimeter-level baseline repeatability and similar tropospheric estimates, suggesting that WVR calibration is not critical for obtaining high precision results with GPS in the CASA region.

  18. The Impact of Social Interaction and Communications on Innovation in the Architectural Design Studio

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bhzad Sidawi

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Design is a social phenomenon and researchers suggest that social interaction, negotiations and communication between designers are essential to initiate creativity. Within the design studio environment, a number of factors affect the healthy social interaction and design negotiations, such as the teaching style of tutors and the culture that governs a design studio’s environment. This may in turn affect the utilization of the outcome of negotiations in the design project. Design studio students from the third to fifth years at the College of Architecture, University of Dammam (UD, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA, were surveyed to find out how far the design studio’s culture and communication would impact the production of innovative design projects. The results show that frequent communication and the establishment’s shared grounds are essential to develop knowledge and positively influence the design outcome. On the other hand, the research found that negative qualities on a personal level and on that of a design studio environment would hinder a student’s creativity. However, to develop students’ design/innovative abilities, the researcher recommends that certain measures should be considered. These would include transforming the design studio into an interactive and friendly learning environment, adjusting the teaching methodology, and developing interactive communication abilities of students and tutors.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Understanding the notion of learner’s experiences in the design of physical environment of an architecture design studio is a necessity as it contains certain values of influence. It is due to the unique learning experiences which are accrued particularly in design studio that is continued during professional practice as well. Most architectural campuses in Malaysian Private Higher Education Institutions (MPHEI are devoid of certain important elements and this issue needs to be looked into seriously. Apparently, most architectural design studios today have different physical settings, and have developed their own learning culture based on the typical space that they have. Reviewing the physical environment and how it contributes to the social environ-ment in MPHEI’s architectural context requires certain understanding on the learner’s psycho-logical needs, expectations and in the same time to meet the educational objective which is never an easy task. Hence, this paper reviewed the studies of the possible physical environment approaches in connecting the learner’s connections in architecture studio learning environ-ment. A questionnaire survey with Likert-scale components, and semi-structured interview on learners of five distinguished Private Architectural schools in Malaysia unveiled several signifi-cant findings that can lead entrepreneurs to upgrade the physical environment of these MPHEIs in order to cope with the demands of the stakeholders.

    possono essere rimesse in gioco nell?analisi della partizione su piccola scala. Infatti, considerando ulteriori suddivisioni delle aree soggette a disturbo, i due sessi sono segregati anche di notte, pur frequentando lo stesso settore della Tenuta. Poiché di notte il disturbo antropico è assente, infatti, una segregazione su piccola scala non era attesa. Questo dimostra che, una volta scomparso il fattore determinante della segregazione diurna, possono entrare in gioco ulteriori fattori, come la differente velocità di foraggiamento dei due sessi (prevista dalla terza ipotesi, che porta i gruppi maschili e femminili a non rimanere aggregati tra loro anche quando presenti nella stessa area. Tutto ciò sottolinea l?importanza della scala spaziale adottata nello studio della segregazione sessuale e nella comprensione dei processi ecologici, evidenziando come la combinazione di differenti fattori possa essere responsabile nell?evoluzione della segregazione sessuale degli ungulati.

    Nyström, Pär; Falck-Ytter, Terje; Gredebäck, Gustaf

    2016-06-01

    This article describes a new open source scientific workflow system, the TimeStudio Project, dedicated to the behavioral and brain sciences. The program is written in MATLAB and features a graphical user interface for the dynamic pipelining of computer algorithms developed as TimeStudio plugins. TimeStudio includes both a set of general plugins (for reading data files, modifying data structures, visualizing data structures, etc.) and a set of plugins specifically developed for the analysis of event-related eyetracking data as a proof of concept. It is possible to create custom plugins to integrate new or existing MATLAB code anywhere in a workflow, making TimeStudio a flexible workbench for organizing and performing a wide range of analyses. The system also features an integrated sharing and archiving tool for TimeStudio workflows, which can be used to share workflows both during the data analysis phase and after scientific publication. TimeStudio thus facilitates the reproduction and replication of scientific studies, increases the transparency of analyses, and reduces individual researchers' analysis workload. The project website ( http://timestudioproject.com ) contains the latest releases of TimeStudio, together with documentation and user forums.

  20. Appropriate teaching and learning strategies for the architectural design process in pedagogic design studios

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ashraf M. Soliman

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available The national qualification framework of a country requires a certain level of knowledge and complexity of skills for an academic degree to be recognized. For architectural programs, student workload is heavy on design courses. Therefore, each course must be carefully developed to ensure that students are not overloaded. Teaching and learning strategies have different implications for courses, which occasionally result in overloading the students. This research aims to study the three main pillars of teaching and learning strategies for each design phase in pedagogic design studios. The most appropriate model for each teaching and learning strategy, including a set of the three main pillars, is then identified for each design phase. A practical strategy for managing design studios is also determined. The aforementioned three pillars are as follows: teaching and learning methods, assigned tasks or study aspects, and design communication techniques. Two research methods, namely, a literature review and a survey among design educators, are adopted. The literature review examines aspects that contribute to the design process and its phases, teaching methods, design skills, communication methods, and studio management strategies. On the basis of the literature review, the background of developments and practices in the design education process are used as constructive tools to develop the survey for design educators. Through the survey, the pillars of teaching and learning strategies that are frequently practiced in design studios are evaluated. Results of this study are classified into three ranks using the nature break classification method for numerical values. Subsequently, three priority models that correspond to teaching and learning strategies, as well as to the required skills and capabilities, are established. A group-based strategy with an interdisciplinary approach is also determined to be the most suitable technique for managing the

  1. Appropriate Pedagogical Approaches For Conduct of Site Planning and Built Environment Studio in Spatial Planning Education Programs

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Valliappan Alagappan

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Spatial planning education is multi-disciplinary in nature and particularly site planning needs exposure to Engineering, Architectural, Landscape, Sociological, Economic, and Infrastructural aspects. The curriculum of the spatial planning program introduces the site-planning studio (multi-level design and planning at the initial semesters without introduction of single space design and planning. Due to inadequate exposure the students find it difficult to plan and design residential layouts in the planning studio. The site-planning studio provides a good understanding of how the articulation of density can modify the built form and environment. There are considerable lacunae in the adopted approaches of site planning studios in various planning schools. The author discusses in detail the varied methodologies and approaches adopted in site planning and built environment studio programs. The two pedagogical studios methods experimented in the site-planning studio were discussed at length. One method discusses from unit level planning and designing to block and neighborhood level and other method discusses from neighborhood to block and unit level. Within these two studio pedagogical methodologies, for conduct of site planning exercises two approaches were generally adopted i.e block-based approach and Design based approach. The characteristic features, outcomes, advantages and disadvantages of each methodologies /approach offer an understanding of how site-planning studios have to be taught in the planning program. The author emphasizes the importance of a gradual progression from a single space design and planning to multi-level design and planning for enhanced comprehension of students.

    The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) has taught its first-semester introductory physics course using a hybrid lecture/Studio Physics format for several years. Over the past year we have converted the second semester of our calculus-based introductory physics course (Physics II) to a Studio Physics format, starting from a traditional lecture-based format. In this paper, we document the early stages of this conversion in order to better understand which features succeed and which do not, and in order to develop a model for switching to Studio that keeps the time and resource investment manageable. We describe the recent history of the Physics II course and of Studio at Mines, discuss the PER-based improvements that we are implementing, and characterize our progress via several metrics, including pre/post Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism (CSEM) scores, Colorado Learning About Science Survey scores (CLASS), solicited student comments, failure rates, and exam scores.

    2014-01-01

    The original CNC milling files used to machine the electrodes of the REX-ISOLDE RFQ were acquired in late 2012 and electrostatic simulations were carried out using CST EM Studio in order to attain a 3D field map of the electric fields in the region around the beam axis. The objective was to construct a beam dynamics simulation tool that frees us from the constraints of the PARMTEQM code, which was used to design the RFQ, and that will afford us more flexibility in the studies needed for pre-bunching into the RFQ with an external multi-harmonic buncher. This note details the geometry of the electrodes and their simulation in CST EM Studio, the implementation of particle tracking in the computed field map using TRACK and benchmarking studies with PARMTEQM v3.09.

  14. Inferring Caravaggio's studio lighting and praxis in The calling of St. Matthew by computer graphics modeling

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stork, David G.; Nagy, Gabor

    2010-02-01

    We explored the working methods of the Italian Baroque master Caravaggio through computer graphics reconstruction of his studio, with special focus on his use of lighting and illumination in The calling of St. Matthew. Although he surely took artistic liberties while constructing this and other works and did not strive to provide a "photographic" rendering of the tableau before him, there are nevertheless numerous visual clues to the likely studio conditions and working methods within the painting: the falloff of brightness along the rear wall, the relative brightness of the faces of figures, and the variation in sharpness of cast shadows (i.e., umbrae and penumbrae). We explored two studio lighting hypotheses: that the primary illumination was local (and hence artificial) and that it was distant solar. We find that the visual evidence can be consistent with local (artificial) illumination if Caravaggio painted his figures separately, adjusting the brightness on each to compensate for the falloff in illumination. Alternatively, the evidence is consistent with solar illumination only if the rear wall had particular reflectance properties, as described by a bi-directional reflectance distribution function, BRDF. (Ours is the first research applying computer graphics to the understanding of artists' praxis that models subtle reflectance properties of surfaces through BRDFs, a technique that may find use in studies of other artists.) A somewhat puzzling visual feature-unnoted in the scholarly literature-is the upward-slanting cast shadow in the upper-right corner of the painting. We found this shadow is naturally consistent with a local illuminant passing through a small window perpendicular to the viewer's line of sight, but could also be consistent with solar illumination if the shadow was due to a slanted, overhanging section of a roof outside the artist's studio. Our results place likely conditions upon any hypotheses concerning Caravaggio's working methods and

    A technical principle about construction of virtual studio has been proposed where orientation tracker and telemeter has been used for improving conventional BETACAM pickup camera and connecting with the software module of the host. A model of virtual camera named Camera & Post-camera Coupling Pair has been put forward, which is different from the common model in computer graphics and has been bound to real BETACAM pickup camera for shooting. The formula has been educed to compute the foreground frame buffer image and the background frame buffer image of the virtual scene whose boundary is based on the depth information of target point of the real BETACAM pickup camera's projective ray. The effect of real-time consistency has been achieved between the video image sequences of the master of ceremonies or players and the CG video image sequences for the virtual scene in spatial position, perspective relationship and image object masking. The experimental result has shown that the technological scheme of construction of virtual studio submitted in this paper is feasible and more applicative and more effective than the existing technology to establish a virtual studio based on color-key and image synthesis with background using non-linear video editing technique.

    The concept of connected learning proposes that youth leverage individual interest and social media to drive learning with an academic focus. To illustrate, we present in-depth case studies of Ryan and Sam, two middle-school-age youth, to document an out-of-school intervention intended to direct toward intentional learning in STEM that taps interest and motivation. The investigation focused on how Ryan and Sam interacted with the designed elements of Studio STEM and whether they became more engaged to gain deeper learning about science concepts related to energy sustainability. The investigation focused on the roles of the engineering design process, peer interaction, and social media to influence youth interest and motivation. Research questions were based on principles of connected learning (e.g., self-expression, lower barriers to expertise, socio-technical supports) with data analyzed within a framework suggested by discursive psychology. Analyzing videotaped excerpts of interactions in the studio, field notes, interview responses, and artifacts created during the program resulted in the following findings: problem solving, new media, and peer interaction as designed features of Studio STEM elicited evidence of stimulating interest in STEM for deeper learning. Further research could investigate individual interest-driven niches that are formed inside the larger educational setting, identifying areas of informal learning practice that could be adopted in formal settings. Moreover, aspects of youth's STEM literacy that could promote environmental sustainability through ideation, invention, and creativity should be pursued.

  3. The Unmade City: Subjectivity, Buffalo and the Sad Fate of Studio Arena Theatre

    Full Text Available This article is a reflection on the disjointed and submerged cultural consciousness of the city of Buffalo, New York. It outlines the concept of subjectivity as put forward by the philosopher Alain Badiou, and maps it onto the history of Studio Arena, Buffalo’s main theatre company. Studio Arena Theatre (1927–2008 was one of the oldest and best known regional theatres in the USA. Its closure is a story fraught with conflict, misunderstanding and loss. That there has been no replacement theatre of comparable size and mandate says something about Buffalo’s diminished civic imaginary. While the link between the Theatre and the City is hard to formularise, it is a historically important relationship, going back to the time of Aristotle when theatre functioned as an informing resource for the lives of citizens. Those interested in urban renewal in Buffalo and other rust-belt US cities can profit not only from an understanding of Studio Arena Theatre’s history, but from a consideration of the kind of emotional engagement that this regional theatre represented.

    Full Text Available This paper describes an action-research project undertaken to explore teaching and learning in the design studio in the Faculty of the Built Environment (FBE, University of New South Wales, Sydney. The research project involved three undergraduate design programmes (architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture within the FBE, however this paper will focus only on the findings related to the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLArch programme. The studio is at the core of the design-based curriculum for the landscape architecture degree. This setting nurtures and encourages students to demonstrate a range of capabilities and attributes expected in professional practice. Design projects are complex, integrated assessment tasks. While design teachers use criteria to assess knowledge and skills, students often feel the judgement of overall design project excellence is based on subjective interpretation. There is also concern about the effectiveness of design teaching across the studios. Specifically, the study identified students' perceptions of what constitutes the mark of High Distinction (HD and characteristics of the ideal design teacher. This paper does not present a discourse analysis of the theoretical framework and concepts of the research project. That material is presented in previous and subsequent publications (Corkery et al, 2003.

    Full Text Available Although not yet truly ‘comprehensive’, modern mass spectrometry-based experiments can generate quantitative data for a meaningful fraction of the human proteome. Importantly for large-scale protein expression analysis, robust data pipelines are in place for identification of un-modified peptide sequences and aggregation of these data to protein-level quantification. However, interoperable software tools that enable scientists to computationally explore and document novel hypotheses for peptide sequence, modification status, or fragmentation behavior are not well-developed. Here, we introduce mzStudio, an open-source Python module built on our multiplierz project. This desktop application provides a highly-interactive graphical user interface (GUI through which scientists can examine and annotate spectral features, re-search existing PSMs to test different modifications or new spectral matching algorithms, share results with colleagues, integrate other domain-specific software tools, and finally create publication-quality graphics. mzStudio leverages our common application programming interface (mzAPI for access to native data files from multiple instrument platforms, including ion trap, quadrupole time-of-flight, Orbitrap, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization, and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers and is compatible with several popular search engines including Mascot, Proteome Discoverer, X!Tandem, and Comet. The mzStudio toolkit enables researchers to create a digital provenance of data analytics and other evidence that support specific peptide sequence assignments.

    We studied efficacy and safety of prostamol-Uno (PU) monotherapy in patients with prostatic adenoma (PA) comorbid with chronic abacterial prostatitis (CAP) in a clinical open trial including 45-year-old males aged over 45 years with PA comorbid with CAP, having irritative and obstructive symptoms by IPSS above 8 points and duration 6 months or longer, by NIH-CPSI above 10 points and duration 3 months or longer. The patients had Qmax from 5 to 15 ml/s, urine volume 100-350 ml, residual urine volume under 150 ml, prostate size more than 25 cm3, PSA level under 4 ng/ml and no bacterial growth in the third urine portion seeding and/or prostatic secretion. The effect was assessed by the disease history, complaints, digital rectal examination of the prostate, the disease symptoms by IPSS, quality of life (QoL), NIH-CPSI, bacteriological tests of the urine and prostatic secretion, urinalysis, Nechiporenko test in 3 urine portions. Uroflowmetry, ultrasonic investigation of the urinary bladder and prostate, transrectal energy dopplerography of the prostate, PSA assay in the blood serum were made in all the patients. PU safety was evaluated by arterial pressure, heart rate, 6-lead ECG, total and biochemical blood count. Control examination 3 months after the treatment showed no negative changes. PU patients demonstrated reduction in IPSS index from 14 to 6.8 points and NIH-CPSI (from 18.4 to 12.3 points (from 13 to 11.2 and 17.1 to 16.8 points, respectively, in the controls). QoL reduced from 3.9 to 1.9, from 3.6 to 3.3 points, respectively. Qmax rose from 12.4 to 18.2 ml/s and 13.5 to 14.5 ml/s, respectively. PSA changed insignificantly. Side effects were mild. Spectral doppler examination detected improvement in prostatic blood flow after PU treatment in 16 (53.3%) patients. Resistance index as an index of peripheral vascular resistance increased from 0.48-0.54 to 0.7-0.72 (p prostatic adenoma in combination with CAP.

    Full Text Available [Reading “De uno” in light of Francis Bacon’s “Exemplum tractatus de iustitia universali, sive de fontibus iuris”]. Although Vico was admittedly disappointed by Bacon’s Exemplum tractatus, a parallel reading of this text and De uno can provide insights as to how Vico ended up having to confront a series of issues: how does the universal law project itself into history? Where does the law stem from? Is there a link between law, occasion, and utility? What are the sources and the scope of authority? How does violence affect the law? What role for religion and piety? How to devise a philology for the laws and ancient fables? Bacon’s scattered aphorisms offer glimpses into problems which find a solution in the all-encompassing order of De uno.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ana Amélia C. Genioli

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Este livro inédito do filósofo japonês Kuniichi Uno apresenta 11 ensaios sobre o corpo, a dança, o teatro, o cinema e a biopolítica com reflexões que tomam como referência obras de Nijinsky, Tanaka Min, Hijikata, Artaud, Beckett, Genet e Deleuze. A dança e os escritos de bailarinos japoneses inspiraram-no para pensar sobre o corpo a partir do movimento. O encontro desse corpo, pelos autores trazidos por Uno, não se dará de maneira “positiva”, mas pela “transgressão” da razão, pela crueldade do pensamento, pelos interstícios, pelas fissuras, pela realidade que excede o texto. O que interessa a Uno nos autores franceses é a forma como desestabilizam os aspectos mais cartesianos e dogmáticos da filosofia da razão europeia, ou seja, é aquilo que os aproxima do Oriente.

    Magnetic resonance (MR) is an ideal technique for the evaluation of the pericardium since it enables the combination of high resolution anatomical images of the pericardial layers with functional information concerning the impact of pathology on diastolic heart function and cardiac filling in particular. In comparison with echocardiography, which remains the first choice techniques for the study of the pericardium, MR provides larger fields of view allowing the visualization of the entire chest, higher spatial and contrast resolution and greater reproducibility. The technique becomes particularly useful when ultrasound imaging does not provide adequate diagnostic information or requires further characterisation; non echoic patients, loculated pericardial effusions, focal thickening of the layers and pericardial effusions, focal thickening of the layers and pericardial masses are usually better assessed with MR. The method also provides valuable diagnostic information for establishing the diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis and to differentiate this condition from restrictive cardiomyopathy. The aim of this paper is to present the role of MR imaging in the assessment of a patient with suspected pericardial disease, and discuss the MR technique, anatomy and the main pathological conditions. [Italian] La Risonanza Magnetica rappresenta una metodica ideale per lo studio del pericardio offrendo una combinazione di informazioni morfologiche derivanti dall'acquisizione di immagini anatomiche ad alta risoluzione ed informazioni funzionali riguardanti la valutazione dell'impatto della potenziale patologia sulla funzione cardiaca e sul riempimento diastolico in particolare. In confronto con l'ecocardiografia, che rappresenta comunque l'indagine diagnostica di prima istanza, la RM offre la possibilita' di disporre di campi di vista piu' ampi consentendo di visualizzare le strutture toraciche extracardiache, di piu' elevata risoluzione

    2015-12-01

    The project Exploring Science in the Studio at California College of the Arts (CCA), one of the oldest and most influential art and design schools in the country, pursues ways to enable undergraduate students to become scientifically literate problem-solvers in a variety of careers and to give content and context to their creative practices. The two main branches of this National Science Foundation-funded project are a series of courses called Science in the Studio (SitS) and the design of the Mobile Units for Science Exploration (MUSE) system, which allow instructors to bring science equipment directly into the studios. Ongoing since 2010, each fall semester a series of interdisciplinary SitS courses are offered in the college's principal areas of study (architecture, design, fine arts, humanities and sciences, and diversity studies) thematically linked by Earth and environmental science topics such as water, waste, and sustainability. Each course receives funding to embed guest scientists from other colleges and universities, industry, or agriculture directly into the studio courses. These scientists worked in tandem with the studio faculty and gave lectures, led field trips, conducted studio visits, and advised the students' creative endeavors, culminating in an annual SitS exhibition of student work. The MUSE system, of fillable carts and a storage and display unit, was designed by undergraduate students in a Furniture studio who explored, experimented, and researched various ways science materials and equipment are stored, collected, and displayed, for use in the current and future science and studio curricula at CCA. Sustainable practices and "smart design" underpinned all of the work completed in the studio. The materials selected for the new Science Collection at CCA include environmental monitoring equipment and test kits, a weather station, a stream table, a rock and fossil collection, and a vertebrate skull collection.

    Full Text Available Architectural education should advance in parallel with the industrial growth of building technology. Universities as producers of future architects have yet to develop curriculums for building technology to suit the growth of the building industry. This gap between education and industrial growth has been a topic of debate for many researchers who are concerned about architectural pedagogy. Architectural instruction further aggravated the problem whereby in most architectural schools worldwide, teaching is divided between the design studio, where the design projects are taught and lecture classes where the technical parts are taught. The latter should be integrated with design studio to enhance design levels. Students face difficulty integrating and applying the structural knowledge gained from structure classes into their design. One explanation for this deficiency is because the current architectural structure subject's content is borrowed from an engineering syllabus. This study will examine the course content, instruction styles and method of teaching structure subjects and will investigate the learning outcomes of design studio through students' performance and perception in integrating structural knowledge in their design projects. Respondents were students from Year 1 to Year 5 doing their Bachelor of Science in Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture degrees in University of Malaya. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with the design studio coordinators and structure lecturers. This study aims to find the ideal course content/method of teaching to facilitate more integration between structure and design studio.

    Full Text Available Abstract – IT Lo studio della relazione attore-spettatore può essere oggi approfondita alla luce dei nuovi modelli cognitivi. Questi modelli, legati in diversi modi alle proposte di embodied mind e alla neurofenomenologia introdotta da Varela negli anni ’90, hanno operato tre cambiamenti di paradigma fondamentali per lo studio della relazione teatrale: 1. esiste una connessione diretta tra percezione e azione; 2. la coscienza non è il risultato del lavoro del solo cervello ma può essere descritta come processo circolare tra essere umano e ambiente; 3. la descrizione dei processi cognitivi necessita il superamento della dicotomia logica tra interno e esterno. Grazie a questi avanzamenti, lo studio della relazione attore-spettatore conquista dei nuovi concetti che ne raffinano l’analisi: l’intenzione dilatata, il body schema performativo, la co-costituzione dello spazio scenico, l’esperienza performativa dello spettatore.  Abstract – EN The research on the actor-spectator relationship can achieve a higher precision thanks to the new cognitive models. Linked to the propositions of embodied mind and neurophenomenology, proposed by Varela in the 90s, this models propose some important paradigm’s shift: 1. a direct connection between perception and action has been showed; 2. consciousness is not the result of the brain alone but it is a circular process between human being and the world; 3. the description of the cognitive processes has to bypass of the logical dichotomy inner/outer. From the point of view of this advancements, the study of the actor-spectator relationship gains new concepts which improve the precision of the analysis: the dilated intension, the performative body schema, the co-constitution of the theatrical space, the spectator performative experience.

  17. Improving Student Commitment to Healthcare-Related Design Practice by Improving the Studio Learning Experience.

    2017-01-01

    This case study explores the influence of the healthcare design studio experience on students' short-term professional goals as measured through rates of healthcare-related certification and internship/employment. The value and relevance of interior design is evident in the healthcare design sector. However, interior design students may not perceive this value if it is not communicated through their design education. Students' experience in the design studio plays a crucial role in determining career choices, and students may be more committed to career goals when there is clear connection between major coursework and professional practice. The authors compared healthcare-related certification and internship/employment levels between two student cohorts in a capstone undergraduate interior design healthcare design studio course. The first cohort was led by the existing curriculum. The second cohort was led by the revised curriculum that specifically aimed at encouraging students to commit to healthcare-related design practice. When measured at 3 months from graduation, the second cohort, led by the revised curriculum, saw a 30% increase in Evidence-based Design Accreditation and Certification exam pass rates and a 40% increase in healthcare-related internship/employment. The challenge of interior design education is to instill in emerging professionals not only professional competence but also those professional attitudes that will make them better prepared to design spaces that improve quality of life, particularly in healthcare environments. The results exceeded the project goals, and so this could be considered a promising practice for courses focused on healthcare design education.

    Full Text Available Being individually staged of music has been a performance process that always requires intensive concentration, attention and long - running work for performers. At the end of this process, generally during their performance, musicians feel apprehensive and excited about some reasons like carrying out work's musical and technical factors properly and sense of being appreciated by audiences. In many surveys, it is known that ,in concerts and their own instrument exams, the apprehension of undergraduate student s of music education department ,who have experienced this process, affects their performances negatively. Thus, the aim of this study is to specify the music education undergraduate students' apprehension level before a studio recording that needs a very special performance according to different variables. Also in this study, students' views about their studio recording experiences are taken. In the study, descriptive research is used and the technical qualitative research is imposed. In the study carried out for two months, working party is designated by the students of Çomu - Faculty of Education, Department of Fine arts education, Department of music education.

    High stress is a prevalent problem in the worksite. To reduce stress, improve productivity, reduce absenteeism, and lower healthcare costs, many companies offer exercise classes or stress management programmes. Although physical activity is an important component of stress management, few worksites have integrated physical activity into their comprehensive stress reduction programmes. The purpose of this single-arm pilot project was to examine the potential effectiveness of an integrated exercise (studio cycling) and cognitive-behavioural stress management programme. Eighty-four adults, 75% female, mostly aged 40+ years, participated in an integrated 12-week cycling studio and cognitive-behavioural stress management programme. Participants experienced a significant and clinically meaningful reduction on the Perceived Stress Scale (p diet, higher spiritual well-being, improved sleep, receiving more support for maintaining healthy living and improved quality of life at the completion of the 12-week programme and 1-month follow-up. These findings provide further support for an integrated exercise and stress management programme.

    Full Text Available Este artículo analiza los videoclips animados creados por el Studio Ghibli, un reconocido estudio de animación japonés. El objetivo principal de este análisis es doble: por un lado se pretende establecer qué técnicas de animación se utilizan y cómo se relaciona la música con la imagen animada. Por el otro, se examina la presencia de rasgos autoriales e intertextuales en los videoclips para determinar si estos videos cumplen una auténtica función promocional o usan la música como mero acompañamiento. El análisis llevado a cabo se basa en una metodología de análisis cualitativo del discurso audiovisual que comprende diversos aspectos tales como la organización estructural, la relación entre música e imagen, los personajes, los espacios, el apartado formal, el apartado sonoro y la presencia de elementos intertextuales. La muestra se compone de seis videoclips animados creados por Studio Ghibli. Los resultados de los análisis permiten concluir que en estos videos se aprecia un estilo diferenciado al de los largometrajes del estudio y que la dimensión promocional propia del formato predomina sobre las pretensiones artísticas o la excelencia formal.

  16. The Global Studio - Incorporating Peer-Learning into the Design Curriculum

    Full Text Available In ‘tutor-led’ design education, lecturers reside at the centre of teaching & learning activi­ties. We argue that tutor-led design education does not prepare graduates sufficiently for working in highly complex professional capacities. We outline an alternative learning envi­­ron­ment named the Global Studio in which lecturers are more ‘distant’ in pedagogical activities. This ‘distance’ opens up learning spaces which expose students to complex project situations in preparation for professional working life. Global Studio projects are ‘student-led’ and contain explicit opportunities for peer tutoring to ensue. Feedback indicates that learners benefitted from engaging in peer tutoring. However, many students struggled with making important decisions when operating outside of the tutor-led learning environment. To maximise their benefit, we argue that student-led projects featuring peer-tutoring should be scaffolded throughout design programmes to provide students with a sufficient level of expo­sure to this mode of learning. Image by artist Malcom Jones. http://www.malcomjones.com/index.htm

    Fox Studios partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop and implement solutions to retrofit two production stages and one of its central cooling plants, to reduce energy consumption by at least 30% as part of DOE’s Commercial Building Partnerships (CBP) Program. Although this case study reports expected savings arising from proposed design recommendations for a unique building type and the unusual load characteristics associated with its use, the EEMs implemented for the central plant are applicable to any large campus, office and higher education facility. The intent is that by making the energy-efficiency measures (EEMs) set that were assessed as cost-effective from this project applicable to a larger number of buildings on the campus Fox Studios will be able to implement an integrated campus-wide energy strategy for the long term. The significant challenges for this project in the design phase included identifying how to assess and analyze multiple system types, develop a coherent strategy for assessment and analysis, implement the measurement and verification activities to collect the appropriate data (in terms of capturing ‘normal’ operating characteristics and granularity) and determine the best approach to providing cooling to the site buildings based on the nature of existing systems and the expected improvement in energy performance of the central cooling plant. The analytical framework adopted provides a blueprint for similar projects at other large commercial building campuses.

    The Mass Spec Studio package was designed to support the extraction of hydrogen-deuterium exchange and covalent labeling data for a range of mass spectrometry (MS)-based workflows, to integrate with restraint-driven protein modeling activities. In this report, we present an extension of the underlying Studio framework and provide a plug-in for crosslink (XL) detection. To accommodate flexibility in XL methods and applications, while maintaining efficient data processing, the plug-in employs a peptide library reduction strategy via a presearch of the tandem-MS data. We demonstrate that prescoring linear unmodified peptide tags using a probabilistic approach substantially reduces search space by requiring both crosslinked peptides to generate sparse data attributable to their linear forms. The method demonstrates highly sensitive crosslink peptide identification with a low false positive rate. Integration with a Haddock plug-in provides a resource that can combine multiple sources of data for protein modeling activities. We generated a structural model of porcine transferrin bound to TbpB, a membrane-bound receptor essential for iron acquisition in Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae Using mutational data and crosslinking restraints, we confirm the mechanism by which TbpB recognizes the iron-loaded form of transferrin, and note the requirement for disparate sources of restraint data for accurate model construction. The software plugin is freely available at www.msstudio.ca.

    Full Text Available La visión que tienen las personas de sí mismas influye sobre distintos comportamientos organizacionales. Por tanto, resulta esencial entender cómo se pueden modificar las actitudes hacia uno mismo tanto en el contexto personal como el organizacional. El cambio de actitudes depende fundamentalmente de la dirección (favorable o desfavorable de los pensamientos con respecto a uno mismo. En el presente trabajo se propone estudiar, además de la dirección, también el formato de dichos pensamientos. Se llevaron a cabo dos experimentos en los que se pidió a los participantes que pensaran sobre sus fortalezas o debilidades (manipulación de la dirección del pensamiento de forma continua o dicotómica (manipulación del formato. Los resultados indican que la dirección de los pensamientos influyó de forma directa o inversa sobre la auto-estima según el formato. Se ofrecen distintas interpretaciones de estos resultados destacando la posibilidad de que el pensamiento dicotómico resultara difícil en este contexto de alta relevancia. Finalmente, se sugieren implicaciones potenciales de los resultados para el comportamiento organizacional.

    Full Text Available Uno de los aspectos más importantes a la hora de tratar el tema de la discriminación de las mujeres en las ciencias, es la revisión del lenguaje y de los conceptos que las constituyen. Existe entre las ciencias una interconexión que no siempre es constatada sin esfuerzo y que, en relación al género, es de enorme relevancia porque explica la existencia de contenidos de una(s ciencia(s que sirven de material para la construcción epistemológica de otra(s. Ello sin olvidar que la disyunción entre lo masculino y lo femenino es sustentada por la asociación de la masculinidad con el poder y la objetividad, y lo femenino con la subjetividad y el amor. En este artículo reflexiono sobre el discurso médico, especialmente el que refiere la reproducción y la sexualidad, como uno de los supuestos de inaplicabilidad del derecho. El discurso médico, unido al discurso religioso, sirve a nociones jurídicas que impiden la visibilización de los intereses y las necesidades de las mujeres, coadyuvando en la impunidad de las conductas que atentan contra los derechos de las mujeres, impidiendo u obstaculizando la igualdad material o justicia.

    The integrated kindergarten and elementary school is a public educational facility used for early age and elementary education. Designated for children at 4-12 years of age, the design should meet the standards and requirements, while considering children’s needs in their development phase. This paper discusses the design of an integrated kindergarten and elementary school using the playful theme. Design was explored using LEGO and UNO-STACKO to create spaces that accommodate material exploration for children. The design takes the play concept as a medium of child’s learning in order to improve their ability and awareness of the surrounding environment. The design translates the playful theme into imaginary dimension, constructive-deconstructive shapes, and glide circulations concept. The spatial pattern is applied by considering children’s behavior in the designated ages to trigger their creativity improvement. The design is expected to serve as a model of an integrated kindergarten and elementary school architecture.

    2015-03-01

    Third spaces are in-between places where teacher-student scripts intersect, creating the potential for authentic interaction and a shift in what counts as knowledge. This paper describes a unique community-university initiative: a third space storefront classroom for postsecondary students in professional education programs, which also functions as a community art studio for the surrounding neighborhood. This approach to professional education requires an innovative combination of theory, methods, and materials as enacted by the professionals involved and performed by the students. This storefront classroom utilizes collaborative and inclusive instructional practices that promote human and community development. It facilitates the use of innovative instructional strategies including art making and participatory dialogue to create a liminal learning space that reconfigures professional education. In researching the effectiveness of this storefront classroom, we share the voices of students who have participated in this third space as part of their coursework to underscore these principles and practices.

    The possibility of transmission of infectious agents during tattooing has become a legitimate issue of concern for health care providers. A collaborative educational program was developed by a county health department, College of Nursing, and tattoo artists to address issues of medical asepsis with the goal of producing a mechanism for certification of tattoo studios. The group's effort was enhanced by recognizing each other's value systems and by the mutual need for a successful program. A framework for developing, implementing, and evaluating community partnerships was addressed. This program demonstrated that community health nurses can play an instrumental role in collaborating with both health care providers and personal-service workers to minimize transmission of infectious agents during cosmetic procedures.

    Hietanen, M T; Hoikkala, M J

    1990-08-01

    The intensities and spectra of ultraviolet and visible radiation were determined for different types of photofloods (575 to 5000 W) commonly used in television studios and theaters. The measurements were taken with a spectroradiometer at distances of 2.25, 4.5, or 10 m from the lamps. The measured spectral irradiance was weighted against biological hazard functions to determine the potential hazards. The results indicate that in television work, direct viewing of the light source should be limited to a few minutes per day to avoid potential photochemical injury to the retina. In addition, the luminances of the photofloods were calculated. Because the luminance of most of the tested photofloods was several orders of magnitude above the luminance level considered comfortable to the eyes, they can cause discomfort glare.

    Experimental results have shown that the high harmonic fast wave (HHFW) at 30 MHz can provide substantial plasma heating and current drive for the NSTX spherical tokamak operation. However, the present antenna strap design rarely achieves the design goal of delivering the full transmitter capability of 6 MW to the plasma. In order to deliver more power to the plasma, a new antenna strap design and the associated coaxial line feeds are being constructed. This new antenna strap design features two feedthroughs to replace the old single feed-through design. In the design process, CST Microwave Studio has been used to simulate the entire new antenna strap structure including the enclosure and the Faraday shield. In this paper, the antenna strap model and the simulation results will be discussed in detail. The test results from the new antenna straps with their associated resonant loops will be presented as well.

After a review of the literature, a pool of items was created and arranged upon expert recommendation and a pilot study for intelligibility of the expressions was conducted. The researcher contacted a total of 288 visual arts teacher candidates who all agreed to volunteer to take part in this research. As a result of exploratory (EFA and confirmatory (CFA factor analyses, the scale determined to have four factors and 26 items. Variance ration explained by all four factors is 47.23%. Factor loadings were valued from 0.48 to 0.80. Goodness of fit values calculated by CFA were found to be χ2/sd rate 1.94 (χ2/sd=567.17/291. The other goodness of fit values calculated by CFA were RMSEA=0.05, NNFI=0.92, CFI=0.93, IFI=0.93, and RMR=0.06. All fitness indexes obtained were found to be sufficient for model fitness, and accordingly it was decided that this structure was validated. As a result of the difference between item average scores of the 27% subgroup and super group, distinctiveness of all items were found to be significant at p<0.001 level and Cronbach’s Alpha coefficients of the factors were calculated to range from 0.73 to 0.82. Cronbach’s Alpha of the total scale was calculated as 0.83. The results indicate that the questionnaire provides opportunity to make meaningful interpretations on the time management skills of visual arts teacher candidates for studio work courses.

    As part of the NAHB Research Center Industry Partnership, Southface partnered with TaC Studios, an Atlanta-based architecture firm specializing in residential and light commercial design, on the construction of a new test home in Atlanta, GA, in the mixed humid climate. This home serves as a residence and home office for the firm's owners, as well as a demonstration of their design approach to potential and current clients. Southface believes the home demonstrates current best practices for the mixed-humid climate, including a building envelope featuring advanced air sealing details and low density spray foam insulation, glazing that exceeds ENERGY STAR requirements, and a high performance heating and cooling system. Construction quality and execution was a high priority for TaC Studios and was ensured by a third party review process. Post-construction testing showed that the project met stated goals for envelope performance, an air infiltration rate of 2.15 ACH50. The homeowners wished to further validate whole house energy savings through the project's involvement with Building America and this long-term monitoring effort. As a Building America test home, this home was evaluated to detail whole house energy use, end use loads, and the efficiency and operation of the ground source heat pump and associated systems. Given that the home includes many non-typical end use loads including a home office, pool, landscape water feature, and other luxury features not accounted for in Building America modeling tools, these end uses were separately monitored to determine their impact on overall energy consumption.

  11. Velázquez y los Secretarios de Estado. Vicisitudes flamencas de unos retratos del Conde-Duque

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cid, Jesús-Antonio

    1996-06-01

    Full Text Available The correspondence of the Secretarles of State and War of the Government of Flanders shows that between 1637 and 1639 Velázquez received several commissions of portraits of the Count-Duke of Olivares which were to be «originals» based on a 1636 model. This information allows us to cali into question a commonplace in art criticism, namely, that Velázquez never repeated himself and that, therefore, variant versions of the «same» picture must necessarily be regarded as «studio» paintings or copies executed by a different hand. The present study examines the possible interests, utilitarian or symbolic, that the Olivares portraits would have served for a bureaucratic clientele; analogous cases dealing with questions of attribution, as found in the coeval literature; and, finally, Velázquez's social status as an artist.La correspondencia de los Secretarios de Estado y Guerra del Gobierno de Flandes permite documentar diversos encargos a Velázquez, entre 1637 y 1639, de retratos del Conde-Duque de Olivares que habrían de ser «originales» y remontarían a un primer modelo de 1636. Estos datos nos llevan a cuestionar un lugar común de la crítica de arte, según el cual Velázquez no se repetía nunca a sí mismo, por lo que las variantes de un «mismo» cuadro habrían de ser consideradas forzosamente obras de «taller» o copias de mano ajena. Conjeturas sobre las funciones, pragmáticas o simbólicas, que los retratos del privado hubieron de tener en una clientela de burócratas. Analogías con cuestiones de autoría que se plantean en la literatura coetánea. Por último, reflexiones acerca del estatuto social de Velázquez como artista.

    confused with aortic dissection. The imaging techniques (TEE, CT, MRI) have an important role in the final diagnosis of aortic hematoma. Presently Helical CT and MR angiography are the main tools in the early diagnosis of this condition before the development of complications. In this experience helical CT, before and after the administration of contrast material, was accurate in identifying the hematoma localization and extension. [Italian] Tale studio ha lo scopo di valutare con tecnica TC spirale gli aspetti semeiologici dell'ematoma intramurale dell'aorta e sottolineare il ruolo diagnostico decisivo di tale metodica nello studio di pazienti con quadro clinico acuto sospetto per dissezione aortica. E' stato condotto uno studio retrospettivo (dal 1995 al 1999) sulle immagini di 396 pazienti che avevano eseguito un esame TC in regime d'urgenza per sospetta dissezione aortica. Solo 18 pazienti (6 femmine, 12 maschi) presentavano aspetti tomodensitometrici caratteristici per ematoma intramurale aortico. Gli esami sono stati condotti tutti con TC spirale utilizzando i seguenti parametri: spessore dello strato 10 mm, image index 10, passo della spirale 1,5 mm, algoritmo standard con un minimo di 130 kV e 125 mA. Gli esami sono stati condotti prima e dopo iniezione di 130 ml di mdc in bolo rapido e ricercando i seguenti parametri: sede ed estensione longitudinale dell'ematoma spessore e densita' della parte aortica, presenza e localizzazione delle caclificazioni intimali, regolarita' del lume vero, presenza di emomediastino e/o emotorace. In tutti i 18 pazienti (8 di tipo A e 10 di tipo B) e' stato osservato ispessimento circoscritto parietale tipicamente iperdenso nelle scansioni di base e ipodenso in quelle dopo mdc. In 14/18 pazienti l'ispessimento assumeva disposizione eccentrica, in solo 4/18 era concentrico; in tutti i casi l'ispessimento e' risultato maggiore di 4 mm.

    Full Text Available The design studio is the core of the architecture curriculum. Interpersonal interactions have a key role during the processes of design and critique. The influence of emotional intelligence (EQ on interpersonal communication skills has been widely proven. This study examines the correlation between EQ and architectural design competence. To achieve this, 78 architecture students were selected via a simple random sampling method and tested using an EQ test questionnaire developed by Bradbury and Greaves (2006. The scores of five architectural design studio courses (ADS-1, ADS-2, ADS-3, ADS-4, and ADS-5 were used as indicators of the progress in design of the students. Descriptive and inferential statistics methods were both employed to analyze the research data. The methods included correlation analysis, mean comparison t-test for independent samples, and single sample t-test. Findings showed no significant relationship between EQ and any of the indicators.

    Kidney transplantation has been advocated as a therapeutic option in lung recipients who develop end-stage renal disease (ESRD). This analysis outlines patterns of allograft survival following kidney transplantation in previous lung recipients (KAL). Data from the UNOS lung and kidney transplantation registries (1987-2013) were cross-linked to identify lung recipients who were subsequently listed for and/or underwent kidney transplantation. Time-dependent Cox models compared the survival rates in KAL patients with those waitlisted for renal transplantation who never received kidneys. Survival analyses compared outcomes between KAL patients and risk-matched recipients of primary, kidney-only transplantation with no history of lung transplantation (KTx). A total of 270 lung recipients subsequently underwent kidney transplantation (KAL). Regression models demonstrated a lower risk of post-listing mortality for KAL patients compared with 346 lung recipients on the kidney waitlist who never received kidneys (Ploss (Ploss, for KAL patients (P = .86). KAL patients enjoy a significant survival benefit compared with waitlisted lung recipients who do not receive kidneys. However, KAL patients do poorly compared with KTx patients. Decisions about KAL transplantation must be made on a case-by-case basis considering patient and donor factors. © 2017 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    The versatility, simplicity, and robustness of Arduino microcontroller architecture have won a huge following with increasingly serious engineering and physical science applications. Arduino microcontroller environment coupled with commercially available sensors have been used to systematically measure, record, and analyze low currents, low voltages and corresponding dissipated power for assessing secondary physical properties in a diverse array of engineering systems. Setup was assembled via breadboard, wire, and simple soldering with an Arduino Uno with ATmega328P microcontroller connected to a PC. The microcontroller was programmed with Arduino Software while the bootloader was used to upload the code. Commercial Hall effect current sensor modules ACS712 and INA169 current shunt monitor was used to measure corresponding low to ultra-low currents and voltages. Stable measurement data was obtained via sensors and compared with corresponding oscilloscope measurements to assess reliability and uncertainty. Sensor breakout boards were modified to enhance the sensitivity of the measurements and to expand the applicability. Discussion of these measurements will focus on capabilities, capacities and limitations of the systems with examples of possible applications. Lock Haven Nanotechnology Program.

    2002-05-01

    The University of New Orleans is located on the south-shore of Lake Pontchartrain. At UNO, we have established a unique collaboration between the Colleges of Science and Education in the preparation of preservice elementary school teachers. Earth Systems Science themes, based on the local environment, provide the framework for understanding science and mathematics content. In both the content and teaching methods courses, student learning revolves around hands-on, minds-on activies. In both classes, the age-appropriate technology is used as the students perform research projects on Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River. The students are also required to practice their craft in both courses. In the science content courses, the students are required to research a topic that parallels the content learned during the semester, create lesson plans, and teach the subject to the class using inquiry-based methodology. In the teaching methods course, students are required to develop curricula and field test them in a local elementary school. Surveying students at the end of the semester suggests that using Earth Systems Science themes on the local environment as the framework for teaching science content and pedagogy not only improves the students content skills but also their perceptions of science as a subject, and their desire to teach science.

    An observational study of 2 years was promoted by the Italian Association for Cutaneous Ulcers (AIUC) in order to monitor the epidemiology of leg ulcers, the trend of healing and the more frequent therapeutic approaches in lower limb ulcers. Fifty-nine sites in 14 different Italian regions involved in the study, with 1333 enrolled patients (1163 patients fully evaluated and followed up for 9 months). A prevalence of females (62%) was observed with a mean age of 70 years and a high rate of hypertension (62%), diabetes (38%) and obesity (29%). Venous ulcer was most frequent (55%), followed by mixed (25%) and diabetic (8·3%) ulcers. Basically, all patients received a local therapy (LT) (compression and advanced local therapies), while 63% of patients have an associated systemic pharmaceutical treatment. Ulcer healing rates progressively increased throughout the study and despite the type of observational study does not allow conclusions on the treatment, it was observed that the patients receiving additional systemic drugs were associated with a more rapid acceleration of healing rates of ulcers compared to LT alone (3 months: 39·7% versus 29·2%; 6 months: 62·0% versus 47·0%; 9 months: 74·7% versus 63·8%). In particular, the Studio Ulcere Vascolari (SUV) study showed that a combination treatment with sulodexide and compression therapy allows for a greater increase in the healing rates in venous ulcers.

    Full Text Available The organisations of higher education are constantly changing. Universities, colleges, private schools and online universities refine their pedagogical methods and learning models in a competitive market. This article is a study on whether one such model helps students to gain new knowledge. A study of the LAB studio model (LSM, which is a pedagogical model developing connections between working-life based problems and the recognition and development of business-related prototypes and start-up companies, is presented. The LSM, theoretically grounded in a constructivist view of learning with a project-based education at its core, has the key goal of educating entrepreneurial competences in higher education. Based on the case study, comprisinga literature review of knowledge creation and a survey, the qualitative results analysis suggests that LSM offers a promising support for knowledge creation. The results lead to the conclusion that LSM provides support especially for the various modes of the SECI model, such as socialisation and internalisation, and seems to support organisational knowledge creation aspects as well.

    Digital cameras are of increasing significance for professional applications in photo studios where fashion, portrait, product and catalog photographs or advertising photos of high quality have to be taken. The eyelike is a digital camera system which has been developed for such applications. It is capable of working online with high frame rates and images of full sensor size and it provides a resolution that can be varied between 2048 by 2048 and 6144 by 6144 pixel at a RGB color depth of 12 Bit per channel with an also variable exposure time of 1/60s to 1s. With an exposure time of 100 ms digitization takes approx. 2 seconds for an image of 2048 by 2048 pixels (12 Mbyte), 8 seconds for the image of 4096 by 4096 pixels (48 Mbyte) and 40 seconds for the image of 6144 by 6144 pixels (108 MByte). The eyelike can be used in various configurations. Used as a camera body most commercial lenses can be connected to the camera via existing lens adaptors. On the other hand the eyelike can be used as a back to most commercial 4' by 5' view cameras. This paper describes the eyelike camera concept with the essential system components. The article finishes with a description of the software, which is needed to bring the high quality of the camera to the user.

    2009-01-01

    The objectives of this ethnographic study were to understand the effect of an integrated arts studio on the lives of the participants including the impact of social isolation, stigma and discrimination, and to study the importance of consumer perspective in the design and implementation of the program. Methods included the use of semi-structured in-depth interviews, participant-observation, journal keeping, and document review with twenty individuals. Ten participants self identified as having mental illnesses, and their diagnoses were varied in severity and description; the other ten participants reported no mental illnesses. A key finding of the study was that art making provided participants the opportunity to build new identities and roles, and that through engagement in mutually meaningful activity, in this case making art, a community of artists developed. Art was also seen as a bridge creating access to the larger community. These findings add further evidence for the power of art making as a practical strategy to affect the health of individuals living with psychiatric disabilities as well as the communities in which they reside.

    In the United States, over 170,000 first solitary deceased donor kidney transplants were reported to the United Network of Organ Sharing registry from 1988 to 2011. The composition of transplant recipients has changed over time. There were notable increases in older patients (31% to 64.5%), non-Caucasian patients (36% to 58%), obese patients (body mass index over 35: 11% to 37%), type II diabetes patients (1% to 28%), and patients with hypertension (17% to 31%). Death with functioning graft was a very important factor in analyzing kidney graft survival. The death-censored graft survival rate could more accurately reflect the relationships between risk factors and survival of kidney grafts. Younger patients, especially those younger than 35, had worse graft survival. Patients with diabetes as the primary disease showed poor graft survival, but the effect was not obvious compared to the majority of other primary diseases. Diabetes, either type I or type II, was a main contributor to patient death. There was notable progress in short-term graft survival over time. Long-term graft survival is still a problem. However, 5-year death-censored graft survival in patients who have survived longer than 1 year has improved by 7.9% from 1993 to today. Delayed graft function could impact both short- and long-term graft survival. Human leukocyte antigen compatibility was a main factor of graft survival. Zero mismatch patients have an 18% better 20-year death-censored graft survival than those with 6 antigen mismatches. Panel reactive antibody (PRA) is also an important factor to graft survival. PRA class I and class II has been reported to UNOS since 2004. PRA class II was slightly more related to graft survival compared to PRA class I.

    Background Previous multivariate analysis during 4/1/94-12/31/00 from the Organ Procurement Transplant Network/United Network for Organ Sharing (OPTN/UNOS) database has shown that kidneys from Black donors were associated with lower graft survival. We compared graft and patient survival of different kidney donor-to-recipient ethnic combinations to see if this result still holds on a recent cohort of US kidney transplants. Methods 72,495 recipients of deceased and living donor kidney alone transplants from 2001-2005 were included. A multivariate Cox regression method was used to analyze the effect of donor-recipient ethnicity on graft and patient survival within 5 years of transplant, and to adjust for the effect of other donor, recipient and transplant characteristics. Results are presented as hazard ratios (HR) with the 95% confidence limit (CL) and p-values. Results Adjusted HR's of donor-recipient patient survival: White to White (1), White to Black (1.22, p=.001). Graft survival HRS: Black to Black (1.40, p<0.001), Black to White (1.35, p<0.001), Black to Hispanic (0.87, p=0.18), Black to Asian (0.69, p=0.05). Summary Black donor Kidneys are associated with significantly lower graft survival when transplanted into Whites and Blacks and are only associated with lower patient survival when these kidneys are transplanted into White transplant recipients. The graft and patient survival rates for Asian and Latino/Hispanic recipients however were not affected by donor ethnicity. This analysis underscores the need for research to better understand the reasons for these disparities and how to improve the post transplant graft survival rates of Blacks. PMID:20005353

    As part of the NAHB Research Center Industry Partnership, Southface partnered with TaC Studios, an Atlanta-based architecture firm specializing in residential and light commercial design, on the construction of a new test home in Atlanta, GA in the mixed humid climate. This home serves as a residence and home office for the firm's owners, as well as a demonstration of their design approach topotential and current clients. Southface believes the home demonstrates current best practices for the mixed-humid climate, including a building envelope featuring advanced air sealing details and low density spray foam insulation, glazing that exceeds ENERGY STAR requirements, and a high performance heating and cooling system. Construction quality and execution was a high priority for TaCStudios and was ensured by a third party review process. Post-construction testing showed that the project met stated goals for envelope performance, an air infiltration rate of 2.15 ACH50. The homeowners wished to further validate whole house energy savings through the project's involvement with Building America and this long-term monitoring effort. As a Building America test home, this homewas evaluated to detail whole house energy use, end use loads, and the efficiency and operation of the ground source heat pump and associated systems. Given that the home includes many non-typical end use loads including a home office, pool, landscape water feature, and other luxury features not accounted for in Building America modeling tools, these end uses were separately monitored todetermine their impact on overall energy consumption.

    The aim of the study is the investigation of capabilities of ultrasonography in morphological and functional studies of laryngeal structures. 50 healthy subjects were examined ranging in age 23 to 74 years; 17 of them were professional opera singers. All the anatomical structures that could be measured were clearly demonstrated. In addition to the advantages that ultrasonography is known to provide, it can also permit accurate measurements of the anatomical structures of the larynx and respiratory space at rest and in the dynamic phase, which are important data in some conditions (e.g., cord paralysis) or follow-up of drug or rehabilitation treatment. Finally ultrasonography can permit to detect atypical situations such as those in false/true vocal cords hypertrophy and abnormal cord growth. [Italian] Scopo del lavoro e' stato quello di verificare i risultati ottenibili con l'ecografia nello studio morfologico e funzionale delle strutture laringee. Sono stati eseguiti esami su 50 soggetti sani di eta' compresa tra 23 e 74 anni, tra i quali 17 cantanti lirici professionisti. Sono state evidenziate con chiarezza tutte le strutture anatomiche che e' stato possibile misurare. Oltre ai vantaggi noti e codificati, l'ecografia consente di effettuare precise misurazioni delle strutture anatomiche della laringe e dello spazio respiratorio a riposo e nella fase dinamica, dato importante in alcune malattie (paralisi cordale) e nei controlli dopo terapia farmacologica o logopedica riabilitativa. Puo' consentire di rilevare situazioni atipiche come l'ipertrofia delle false o delle vere corde, nelle anomalie degli accrescimenti cordali.

    We built a full computer graphics model of Parmigianino's studio, including convex mirror, in order to explore the artist's likely working methods during his execution of Self portrait in a convex mirror (1523-4). Our model supports Vasari's record that the radius of curvature of a convex mirror matched the radius of curvature of the wood panel support. We find that the image in the painting is consistent with a simple horizontal rectilinear room drawn from a slightly re-oriented and re-positioned mirror. Our optical analyses lead us to recommend an alteration to the current display arrangement in the Kunsthistorisches Museum.
