  1. Representação, partidos e sociedade civil na Argentina e no Brasil

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kathryn Hochstetler

    Full Text Available Este artigo questiona se as organizações da sociedade civil (OSCs podem e cumprem o papel de exercer uma função de representação em tempos de crise dos partidos políticos. Para tanto, ele examina práticas recentes de representação no Brasil e na Argentina, dois países onde os partidos políticos têm experimentado crises agudas depois de décadas de avaliações ambíguas a respeito de seus sistemas partidários. Em tais momentos, qualquer substituição de partidos por OSCs deveria ser facilmente identificável. Inicialmente, examinam-se as funções e o potencial de representação das OSCs, usando o modelo de partido político como referência. Em seguida, argumenta-se a partir de surveys já publicados e pesquisa de campo inédita, numa comparação focada em quão bem os partidos e OSCs têm desempenhado suas funções públicas e organizacionais no Brasil e na Argentina. A conclusão é a de que as OSCs não substituem os partidos como mecanismos de representação de interesses e valores dos cidadãos - e nem ao menos tentam fazer isso, exceto por um breve período, no auge da crise na Argentina. Em ambos os países, porém, as OSCs melhoram a qualidade de representação dos cidadãos.

    Full Text Available El artículo reflexiona acerca de la relación entre las instituciones estatales y la sociedad civil en las políticas de desarrollo socio-productivo, implementadas en la Argentina a partir del año 2003. Para ello se indaga cuál es el rol asignado a la participación de los destinatarios y las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en estas políticas y los supuestos acerca de las formas de participación que subyacen en sus normativas. Luego, se analiza cómo se desarrolla efectivamente esta articulación entre Estado y sociedad civil en el proceso de implementación de los programas y las dificultades que se presentan, a partir del caso de una cooperativa de trabajo que fue apoyada por estos programas. En cuanto a la metodología se utilizó un enfoque plural que articuló el análisis documental con el uso de técnicas cualitativas de corte etnográfico.O Artigo reflete sobre a relação entre as instituições estaduais e a sociedade civil nas políticas de desenvolvimento socioprodutivas, implementadas na Argentina a partir de 2003.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem por objetivo lançar luz sobre o impacto da Guerra Civil Espanhola sobre a indústria editorial argentina e mexicana. Em particular, pretende enfocar as contribuições oferecidas por refugiados ou exilados espanhóis que, uma vez estabelecidos na outra margem do Atlântico, procuraram retomar seus ofícios de origem, inserindo-se nas gráficas e editoras existentes nesses dois países ou fundando novos negócios livreiros. Tanto o México como, em especial, a Argentina, beneficiaram-se da crise impingida pela guerra à indústria editorial da antiga metrópole para explorar o vasto mercado aberto aos impressos em língua espanhola.This article aims at shedding light on the impact of the Spanish Civil War on the publishing industry in Argentina and in Mexico. Particularly, it intends to analyze the contributions of Spanish refugees or in exile who, once established on the other border of the Atlantic Ocean, tried to go back to their previous jobs, working at preexisting publishing houses in those two countries or creating new ones. Both Mexico and specially Argentina took advantage of the Spanish publishing industry's crises so to explore the vast business opportunities for books in Spanish.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho tem o propósito de discutir a situação da universidade argentina nos tempos do Presidente Carlos Saúl Menem (1989-1999. O balizamento histórico na gestão menemista se deve ao fato de este governo ter iniciado várias reformas de corte liberalortodoxo, afetando substancialmente a relação entre a sociedade, o Estado e o Mercado. O marco legal deste tipo de reformismo no sistema de educação superior argentino assenta-se na promulagação da Lei número 24.521, em 20.07.1995. Com o intuito de compreender as implicações das políticas públicas geradas no referido período para o conjunto das universidades argentinas, são apresentados dados e considerações sobre população estudantil, plantel docente, ingresso, evasão, graduação, dedicação exclusiva e o programa de incentivo aos professores pesquisadores.

    Full Text Available Si bien todas las sociedades democráticas modernas aceptan en teoría la inviolabilidad de la integridad física de los ciudadanos como parte integrante de sus constituciones, existe una constante tensión entre la protección de este derecho y el uso de la fuerza por parte de los aparatos de seguridad para prevenir el crimen y la delincuencia. Este artículo estudia la dimensión política de este conflicto, analizando el rol que cumple la sociedad civil en la protección de los derechos de las personas. Se argumenta que son tres los factores importantes de visualizar: el acceso al sistema político, los recursos para la movilización de que se dispone, y el nivel de corporativismo de la policía. Considerando el caso de Argentina, se investiga la influencia de la tercera dimensión -nivel de corporativismo- contrastando a la Policía Federal de la Capital de Buenos Aires, la policía de la Provincia de Buenos Aires y el caso de Carabineros de Chile. Se concluye que la sociedad civil organizada tiene un impacto mucho más importante en la definición de la agenda política que en la implementación de políticas incluso en casos donde dichos grupos de la sociedad civil son fuertes. Asimismo, los factores institucionales cumplen un rol importante en la definición de cuándo y dónde es más probable influir para que una reforma de la policía sea posible.Even though modern democratic societies accept the inviolability of individuals' physical integrity as an essential part of their Constitutions, there is a difficult trade off between the protection of citizens' rights and the use of force to protect public safety. This article explores the political dimension of this tension, analyzing the role played by organized civil society in protecting citizens` rights. In this article, I argue that three factors are crucial to understand such influence: the access to the political system, the resources for mobilization these groups have, and the level

    Full Text Available La aplicación del derecho internacional de los derechos humanos (DIDH en el ámbito local argentino y su impacto en este país, no pueden desligarse de la historia reciente: las graves violaciones de los derechos humanos cometidas durante la dictadura (1976–1983. En este sentido, la sentencia de 2005 que anula las leyes llamadas de impunidad y que se basó en el DIDH representa una reorganización de la relación entre política y derecho y marca el rol esencial de la sociedad civil en el juego de diálogos y tensiones entre los poderes ejecutivo y judicial, y entre soberanía y DIDH. En el marco del reclamo permanente de justicia por parte de amplios sectores de la sociedad argentina, el papel de la "sociedad civil" es insustituible para comprender la transformación del valor normativo del derecho internacional y de los valores que son inherentes a su aplicación.

    Full Text Available The gestation by substitution, commonly called surrogacy, is undoubtedly a complex legal concept that has as many detractors as supporters. This technique of assisted human reproduction, unlike other traditionally accepted, puts into question the famous maxim of Roman law mater semper certa est. Though this practice is not new, it has gained popularity in recent years and in Argentina reached a noticeable impact due to a series of court decisions and particularly when it was incorporated into the Draft Civil and Commercial Code of Argentina and subsequently removed from the final text adopted by Congress. Given the legislative gap of the new Argentinean Code, approved by Act 26994, in force since 1 August 2015, we will often see cases of people making use of this technique in a foreign country. However, the effects of filiation obtained under foreign law that allows for substitution gestation, usually pose a problem of recognition in our country, to be analyzed in the light of the rules of Private International Law.

    Full Text Available El artículo asume una perspectiva de género y de hibridación de disciplinas que alienta la confrontación del derecho privado y del derecho público, para dar cuenta del avance desigual de la ciudadanía en Chile y Argentina, en la década de 1920. En ambos países hubo leyes de ampliación del estatuto jurídico de las mujeres, derivadas de procesos legislativos impulsados tanto por partidos políticos como por movimientos sociales. En ambos casos las reformas fueron expresión de un proceso de cambio social más amplio, de sostenida combatividad del movimiento obrero y de creciente participación de las mujeres en el mercado de trabajo, tanto de las obreras como, más incipientemente, de las profesionales de clase media. En este marco, la reforma civil fue limitada y se hizo simultáneamente con el avance de los derechos sociales y en nombre de una mujer ideal: la madre y la esposa. Congruentemente, se mantuvo el principio de autoridad del varón en el seno de la familia y la exclusión de las mujeres respecto del sufragio.This article offers a perspective of hybridization of disciplines and a gender perspective that thrusts a cross-check of private law and public law to explain the irregular advance of citizenship in Chile and Argentina in the 1920's. In both countries there were laws that extended women's civil status. These laws were part of a legislative process carried out by political parties and social movements. In both cases the reforms expressed a broader process of social change, of rising confrontation of the working class movement and increasing participation of women in the labour market, both working class women and middle class professionals. In this context, the reform was limited and it was carried out simultaneously with the advance of social rights and in the name of an ideal woman: the mother and the wife. Congruently, the principle of authority of the man within family relations and the exclusion of women concerning

    Background notes on Argentina provide a profile of the geography, selected demographic features, government and economic conditions. Descriptive text includes a discussion of the people, their history and political conditions, the government and officials, the state of the economy, their defense, foreign relations, and relations with the US. The 1992 estimated population was about 33 million of whom 97% are European (mostly Spanish and Italian). Religions represented are Roman Catholic (92%), Protestant (2%), Jewish (2%), and other (4%). Adult literacy is 95%. 36% are engaged in industry and commerce, 20% in services, 19% in agriculture, 6% in transport and communications, and 19% other. Per capita gross domestic product was $4,500. There are only 50,000 native Indians remaining in peripheral provinces. The population enjoys a high standard of living and a low growth rate. The country was shaped by dominant forces: modern agricultural techniques and the integration of the country into the world economy. Foreign investment aided the economic revolution. Conservative and radical rule has swung the country back and forth politically since 1916. Colonel Juan Domingo Peron led a successful military coup in 1943 and was elected in 1946. Policies were instituted to give a greater voice to the working class, and with the influences of his wife, women's groups. In 1955, he was ousted by the military, which failed to revive the economy and quiet increasing terrorism. After a number of difficult elections, Peron was reinstated as president in 1973. Extremists on the left and right threatened public order; the military as a consequence imprisoned persons indefinitely. Peron's wife succeeded him after his death, but was removed from office in the military coup of 1976. Basic human rights were violated during this period. By 1983, a fair election was held and support increased for a democratic system. In 1989, Carlos Saul Menem, a Peronist candidate, won and established

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se analizan las bases sobre las que se está desarrollando el proceso de transición hacia la TV digital en Brasil y Argentina, y se discuten las posibilidades que la transición presenta para replantear la estructura de mercado y el modelo de regulación de la TV abierta en los países del Mercosur. La principal hipótesis es que la TV digital abre una oportunidad única para reformar el actual modelo de radiodifusión basado en la concesión de un número reducido de licencias a operadores de tipo generalista. Al multiplicar la capacidad de transmisión y facilitar el desarrollo de servicios interactivos tanto de entretenimiento como educativos y de información, la transición a la TV digital se ofrece como instrumento de política pública para alcanzar objetivos clave en materia de comunicación, como el pluralismo, la apertura del mercado y el achicamiento de la llamada brecha digital.

    Full Text Available Desde 2003, a taxa de crescimento do PIB foi mais elevada na Argentina do que no Brasil, e a distribuição da renda, menos desigual. Diminuiu a pobreza. Aumentou o emprego - incluindo o setor industrial - e os empregos informais, assalariados ou não, perdem sua importância relativa. A balança comercial é fortemente superavitária, a taxa de endividamento não excessivamente elevada. A inflação real tem nível elevado, muito mais forte do que aquela anunciada pelo governo e reduz o poder aquisitivo entre as categorias mais pobres. O apreciamento recente da taxa de câmbio efetiva, o peso crescente das commodities nas exportações, das quais depende o financiamento das subvenções concedidas particularmente aos setores com forte consumo de energia, os subsídios insuficientes destinados às indústrias intensivas envolvidas com pesquisa podem transformar o círculo virtuoso de hoje num círculo vicioso amanhã.Since 2003, the growth rate of the GDP has been higher in Argentina than in Brazil. Income distribution is less unequal. Poverty has decreased. Employment is growing - including in the industrial sector -; informal jobs, whether salaried or not, are loosing ground; while the balance of trade shows a trade surplus and the debt ratio is not overly right. Real inflation is hight, far higher than announced by the government, and it curtails any rise in buying power, particularly among the poorest. The recent rise ineffective exchange rates, the rise in the share of raw materials in exports, the fact that these are needed for subsidies paid mainly to energy consuming sectors, the shortage of subsidies to research intensives industries could to morrow turn what is currently a virtuous circle into a vicious circle.

    Full Text Available Ainda que os processos de modernização da crítica literária no Brasil e na Argentina se inscrevam em tradições intelectuais e organizações acadêmicas distintas, nos dois casos, e quase ao mesmo tempo, a crítica literária renovou-se por meio da relação estabelecida com a sociologia. Nesse sentido, duas trajetórias intelectuais, as de Adolfo Prieto e Antonio Candido, e dois empreendimentos culturais, as revistas Contorno (1953-1959 e Clima (1941-1944, são examinados. Entretanto, se nas duas experiências a renovação da crítica seguiu um caminho análogo, somente no Brasil ela se impôs como atividade desenvolvida no interior da universidade e como instância reconhecida de arbitragem da produção literária nas décadas de 1950 e 1960. Em outros termos, a consagração de Antonio Candido na cena cultural brasileira não pode ser comparada com a que alcançou Adolfo Prieto (ou qualquer outro crítico nesse período na Argentina. Por quê? Nossa hipótese correlaciona a legitimação da crítica à perda de centralidade da literatura no mundo culturalIn Argentina and Brazil the modernization of literary criticism in the 1950s and 60s developed in the context of different intellectual traditions and academic organizations. However in both countries, and almost at the same time, literary criticism was renewed through its contact with sociology. To analyze the relationship between these two academic disciplines, this article examines two intellectual trajectories - those of Adolfo Prieto and Antonio Candido - and two cultural magazines - Contorno (1953-1959 and Clima (1941-1944. But although the renewal of literary criticism followed similar paths in both countries, only in Brazil was university-based criticism fully recognized as the foremost intellectual authority over the literary production during the period. In other words, the consolidation of Antonio Candido on the Brazilian cultural scene had no real equivalent in Argentina

  9. O "gaucho", o tango, primitivismo e poder na formação da identidade nacional argentina

    Full Text Available De 1900 a 1930, a Argentina esteve sob o impacto de uma massiva imigração européia que provocou a reconfiguração da identidade nacional. Todavia, o projeto de nação mascara sua heterogeneidade e nega espaço tanto às comunidades que se viram então submersas quanto aos imaginários alternativos que apresenta. O artigo ilustra esse processo particular do prisma do impacto da imageria e vestimenta gaucha no tango. Nesse contexto, ver-se-á que as tradições e vestimentas gauchas constituíram elementos-chave de um revivescimento nacionalista. Procura-se mostar que a conexão entre a imageria e a vestimenta gaucha, teoricamente pertencentes ao passado, abarca também o tango, a música e dança modernas criadas na Argentina nos anos 1880 e 1890 e exportadas para o mundo no início do século XX. O artigo também examina a confluência do nacionalismo argentino com idéias européias de exotismo e primitivismo na definição de um contexto no qual o tango podia ser referido como música e dança gauchas.From 1900 to 1930 Argentina was changed under the impact of massive European immigration provoking a remaking of the national identity. However, the project of a nation masks its heterogenity and denies a space both to the communities that become submerged through it and to the alternative imaginaries that it displays. The article is an illustration of these particular processes through the lens of the impact of gaucho imagery and dress in tango. In this context we will see that the gaucho dress and folk traditions were key components of a nationalist revival. The article tries to show that the connection between gaucho imagery and dress, in theory belonging to the past, embraces also tango, the modern dance and music created in Argentina in the 1880s and 1890s and exported to the world at the beginning of the twentieth century. The paper also examines the confluence of nationalism in Argentina with European ideas of exoticism and

    Full Text Available En la Argentina, la Guerra Civil Española conmovió fuertemente a la colectividad española y a la sociedad toda, que se movilizó en ayuda de uno u otro bando. La mayoría, de tradición liberal, democrática y reformista, adhirió a la República, pero los partidarios del franquismo constituyeron una minoría importante, reclutada principalmente en el pujante antiliberalismo católico y nacionalista. En este artículo se analizan sus repercusiones en la política, su traducción y adaptación a las circunstancias locales. En particular se siguen las alternativas del frente antifascista. Este fue muy fuerte en el campo cultural e intelectual, donde los emigrados republicanos españoles tuvieron una fuerte presencia. En ese proceso hubo dos momentos de quiebre importante: el golpe militar de junio de 1943, que fue interpretado como el triunfo del fascismo en la Argentina, y la elección de Perón en 1946, un heredero del golpe militar que sin embargo reclutó apoyos en los sindicatos obreros, que hasta entonces habían apoyado el antifascismo. Explicar este final paradójico es la intención de este artículo.

    Full Text Available We generated a map of wetlands in Argentina from the digital edition of the National Soil Inventory made by the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria, INTA. Potential wetland areas were extracted from the map after an exhaustive analysis of the database and reassignment of the soil classes, by taking into account 1 soil taxonomic classes; 2 constraining factors (waterlogging, flooding, drainage impairment; and 3 cartographic categories, including lakes, lagoons, marshes and salt lakes. Estimated wetland area is about 600,000 km2, representing 21.5% of the national territory; it increases to 23% when considering salt lakes and deepwater bodies, but their surface is underestimated in the INTA database. Finally, weanalyzed the distribution and abundance of wetland areas from different eco-regions of Argentina, and compared our results with current global wetland databases.Foi confeccionado um mapa de regiões úmidas da Republica Argentina, a partir da análise e reclassificação da edição digital do Atlas de Solos do pais, editado pelo Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia Agropecuária (INTA.

En esta última dimensión veremos cómo las ideas positivistas tuvieron gran importancia en la formación de maestros impartida en las Escuelas Normales. Estableceremos también la relevante influencia del contexto socio-histórico en el desarrollo de la astronomía, y, a su vez, apreciaremos que esta última fue un actor social fundamental en la Historia Argentina. Domingo F. Sarmiento acreditava que a astronomia de Copérnico fosse uma das disciplinas científicas fundamentais para a formação de um cidadão "moderno". Neste trabalho estudaremos astronomia a partir de duas perspectivas: a científica e a educacional Nosso estudo será desenvolvido para a Argentina no século XIX, a partir da iniciativa de Bernardino Rivadavia, em 1821, que estabeleceu um observatório astronômico em Buenos Aires, até as primeiras atividades dos observatórios de Córdoba e La Plata. Em ambas as perspectivas, científica e educativa, vamos analisar a influência das ideias positivistas. Discutiremos como existiram diferenças epistemológicas entre eles, o Observatório de Córdoba orientado de acordo com o positivismo francês, e La Plata, de acordo com o positivismo alemão. Ambos os observatórios tinha uma atitude diferente em relação à educação. As ideias positivistas foram muito importantes para treinar professores do ensino primário na Argentina. Nós iremos enfatizar a importante influência do contexto sócio-histórico na astronomia, já que esta ciência foi um importante ator social na história da Argentina.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN La Guerra Civil Española tuvo un fuerte impacto en el espacio público argentino. En especial en una ciudad como Rosario, con una población inmigrante muy importante, y con una activa vida asociativa de matriz étnica. En ese contexto de polarización y confrontación ideológica, los centros de inmigrantes funcionaron como una caja de resonancia de los conflictos en Europa, pero también de conflictos e intereses en pugna en la sociedad local. En este caso analizaremos la experiencia del Club Español de Rosario, reconocida institución que reunía a buena parte del grupo dominante local de origen peninsular, tanto desde la descripción de su derrotero durante la guerra como en la articulación de socibilidades que permitían la adhesión o detracción del evento bélico.

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta uma análise comparativa do mercado de trabalho do setor da Construção Civil, no Brasil e na França, em um contexto de flexibilização. Fruto de pesquisas de campo em canteiros de obras, nesses dois países, o texto aborda especificidades da informalidade dos contratos de trabalho no setor, que vêm produzindo uma transferência das ilegalidades das grandes para as pequenas empresas. No caso Francês, mediante as agências de temporários. No Brasil, através das pequenas empresas clandestinas, denominadas "gatas". Enfatizam-se a percepção dos trabalhadores frente às ilegalidades e suas estratégias para se manter no mercado. No caso Francês, ressalta-se o trabalho de imigrantes clandestinos ou portadores de títulos de estadia precários, viabilizados pelas agências de temporários. No Brasil, percebe-se que o setor sempre se organizou com base na informalidade e busca, aos poucos, fidelizar os trabalhadores, ainda que se mantenha predominante o trabalho informal.

    Full Text Available A consolidação da Petrobras enquanto companhia transnacional ocorre em um momento de intensificação do processo de internacionalização das empresas brasileiras. Uma das características dos investimentos internacionais de países em desenvolvimento é que eles se concentram em sua própria região. Esse é o caso do Brasil, que destina uma parte importante de seus investimentos no exterior à América do Sul, especialmente à Argentina, onde o Brasil tornou-se um dos maiores investidores estrangeiros. A Petrobras Energía S.A., subsidiária da estatal brasileira e segunda maior empresa petrolífera do país vizinho, tornou-se um ator econômico importante, com atividades em todos os segmentos do setor energético. O objetivo deste artigo consiste em analisar os investimentos da Petrobras na Argentina, entre 2000 e 2005, seu contexto e suas motivações. Para isso, avaliamos a relação entre o processo de internacionalização da empresa e as reformas do setor de petróleo e gás em ambos os países. Constatamos que as vantagens institucionais de localização motivaram a Petrobrás a eleger a Argentina como base de suas atividades na região: do ponto de vista das regras formais, o país proporcionava um ambiente institucional favorável aos investimentos estrangeiros, já que desde o início do projeto de reforma do setor de petróleo e gás argentino, a idéia central era de internacionalizá-lo, permitindo a entrada e saída de empresas estrangeiras e expondo o mercado interno ao mercado internacional.

    Full Text Available Diante do alto percentual de aposentados trabalhando em atividades penosas, este artigo tem como objetivo analisar as trajetórias ocupacionais de aposentados que encontram no trabalho informal da construção civil uma forma de complementar os baixos valores das aposentadorias ou uma opção de permanecerem "ativos". O presente estudo foi desenvolvido numa abordagem qualitativa, utilizando-se a entrevista semiestruturada. Foram entrevistados operários da construção da cidade de São Carlos -SP (Brasil. As entrevistas foram gravadas e transcritas de forma a recuperar a integralidade dos depoimentos, sendo os dados analisados em unidades temáticas. Os resultados mostram que o trabalho na construção é "uma necessidade familiar" para os entrevistados que procuram obter ganhos extras indispensáveis para manter as mesmas condições financeiras anteriores à aposentadoria. Diante da baixa escolaridade dos entrevistados, a construção foi uma das poucas opções restantes frente a um mercado de trabalho cada vez mais excludente.

    Full Text Available A indústria da construção civil, devido a sua grande influência nas atividades econômicas, é responsável pelo consumo dematéria-prima não renovável em grande escala sendo, portanto parte fundamental para que se consiga um desenvolvimentosustentável. Os materiais reciclados surgem como opção para a preservação destes recursos. O sistema modular também se adapta asnecessidades da construção sustentável já que seu processo construtivo resulta na racionalização da obra reduzindo perdas, custosfacilitando a inserção do material no mercado. O objetivo deste trabalho é desenvolver um sistema construtivo modular produzido complacas de argamassa de cimento, areia e caixas recicladas tetrapak. Foi desenvolvida uma proposta de planta padrão para umaresidência com 45m2 onde as vedações e divisórias internas são moduladas e construídas por placas pré-fabricadas de dimensõespadronizadas. Estas placas foram produzidas com duas espessuras diferentes de maneira que se pudesse avaliar sua massa final eresistência a compressão. Os resultados obtidos foram comparados com NBR 6136 (2008 Blocos vazados de concreto simples paraalvenaria - Requisitos. Um modelo de edificação foi construído neste sistema de maneira que se pudesse avaliar sua durabilidade,resistência as intempéries e conforto ambiental.Abstract Due to its strong influence over the economicactivities, the civil construction industry is responsible for thelarge-scale consumption of non-renewable raw materials and byconsequence being an important part of any sustainabledevelopment model. The recycled materials appear as an optionfor preservation of resources. The modular system also fits thenecessities of the sustainable construction since its operativeprocess results in a rationalization of needed man power,reducing losses, costs and facilitating the insertion of the recycledmaterials into the market.

    Full Text Available A construção brasileira retomou nos anos recentes o seu importante papel na receita do desenvolvimento. Após décadas de baixo investimento em infraestrutura e em habitação, o país reencontrou sua rota de progresso. Nesse novo cenário evidenciam-se grandes desafios, o principal deles, na trajetória de crescimento continuado, é o da produtividade. É neste contexto que se insere o presente trabalho, objetivando analisar a produtividade da mão de obra da Construção Civil no setor de habitação na cidade de Santa Maria (RS, bem como analisar qual é o perfil de funcionários mais utilizados nas construções. Para atingir os objetivos, este trabalho tem como referência os dados do Sindicato da Construção de Santa Maria – 8RS entre os anos de 2009 e 2014. Houve, no período analisado, avanços na produtividade induzidos pela própria dinâmica de crescimento e por investimentos em treinamento das construtoras da cidade. Verificou-se uma correlação forte entre área construída e mão de obra utilizada pelas construtoras. Constatou-se também um aumento dos estoques em 2012, seguido de uma alta da área construída nos meses de 2013, acarretando nesse ano o pico do número de empregados na Construção Civil na série em estudo.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo visa compreender o conceito de sociedade civil global, a partir de um diálogo entre o construtivismo em Relações Internacionais e o pensador francês Michel Foucault. Dividido em três seções seguidas por uma conclusão, o texto almeja inserir-se em um espaço acadêmico de profunda contestação das bases filosóficas que permeiam as teorias convencionais nas ciências sociais e, em especial, nas Relações Internacionais. A primeira seção dedica-se à discussão acerca da sociedade civil global como espaço de interação agente-estrutura; na seção subsequente, ao conceito como um conjunto heterogêneo de agentes não estatais de escopo global. A terceira seção funde as duas partes da definição. Assim, propõem-se duas dimensões definidoras da sociedade civil global: na primeira, como espaço político; na segunda, como conjunto de agentes de características específicas. Por fim, uma breve conclusão encerra o texto - mas não a polêmica da discussão. Conclui-se que o contexto contemporâneo é marcado por uma complexidade de tal magnitude que torna urgente uma abordagem que evite oposições binárias e fronteiras ontológicas naturalizadas e reificadas, estando, assim, apta a interpretar de maneira mais adequada as relações sociais e políticas atuais.This article aims at understanding the concept of global civil society, from a dialogue between constructivism in International Relations and the French thinker Michel Foucault. Divided in three sections, followed by a conclusion, the text intends to insert itself in an academic space of a profound contestation concerning the philosophical basis of the conventional theories in the social sciences and, specially, in International Relations.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho teve como objetivo identificar o perfil do consumidor, caracterizar a frequência, os principais hábitos de consumo de frutas e analisar os fatores que interferem no consumo da população residente na Fronteira Oeste do Rio Grande do Sul com Argentina e Uruguai. Foi realizada em 2012 uma pesquisa de caráter exploratório, transversal e de base populacional, constituindo-se na aplicação de questionários à população residente nos municípios de Uruguaiana, Itaqui, São Borja e Santana do Livramento. A mostra foi constituída de 400 consumidores entre as quatro cidades estudadas. Os resultados indicam que apenas 1/3 dos entrevistados consomem frutas diariamente, sendo o consumo mais frequente entre as mulheres. O local preferencial de compra das frutas para consumo ocorre em supermercados. Dentre os motivos que levam as pessoas a consumirem frutas, destaca-se a distinção da fruta como um alimento saudável, sendo a aparência o critério mais adotado na escolha das frutas. As principais frutas consumidas pelos entrevistados na região são as bananas, maçãs, laranjas, mamões e mangas, respectivamente. A redução do preço, a criação do hábito e a melhoria da qualidade das frutas são os fatores preponderantes para que ocorra aumento do consumo de frutas nesta região.

    This study was conducted to verify technical feasibility in reusing drill cuttings originated in oil and gas exploration and production to produce concrete or mortar elements. It consisted of physical and chemical characterization of all items used to build field-cured cement samples - drill cuttings, cement and used aggregates; evaluation of resistance; environmental behavior and classification of the resultant materials. The results had demonstrated the reuse of drill cuttings is possible from both technical and environmental perspective and the ratio of concrete or mortar can be customized according to physical and mechanical needs of end products. In the civil construction elements can be built and used as road basis, ground-cement base, blocks and bricks and other non-structural elements. The application of these elements in E and P operations include containment walls for onshore wells, collecting stations, pipeline brackets, supports and hold-down anchors as well as road pavement and access. From the standpoint of chemical safety, the resultant elements made-up from drill cuttings had demonstrated no potential risk for hydrocarbon leaching (TPH), Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH's), Volatile Organic Compounds (BTEX), Phenols nor Metals. From these results many improvements in the E and P waste management can be established, bringing both economy and greater environment protection measures for the Oil and Gas Exploration and Production operations.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the incidence on temperature and precipitation of strong circulation from the west in the neighborhood of 45ºS. Circulation is estimated by a zonal index applied at 100º, 70º and 40ºW at 500 hPa and the strong circulation days by those which indices are smaller than the difference between the mean and the standard deviation of the daily indices from 1989 to 1998. When strong circulation from the west is calculated at 100º W, temperature anomalies over the country are positive in general and higher than 1ºC in southern Patagonia. Precipitation frequencies are greater than normal in southern Patagonia and the WNW of the country, and smaller in the remaining areas. Temperature anomalies are positive in practically the whole of Argentina and precipitation values greater than normal are practically confined to the south of 42ºS when the circulation from the west is more intense at 70ºW. For the same wind conditions at 40ºW, temperature anomalies are negative in Patagonia and positive in the NE and center of the country, while the greatest precipitation frequencies are found in most of the country except the western provinces. Temperature and precipitation values obtained under the analyzed conditions can be forecast with more than 69% probability when the index on 1 or 2 previous days was negative.Este trabalho analisa a incidência na temperatura e precipitação da forte circulação de oeste em aproximadamente 45ºS.

    trabalho docente ante os desafios da escola secundária argentina, destacadamente observando que: é muito difícil isolar os impactos gerados por um docente, em particular na formação dos alunos; que os efeitos do trabalho docente operam em conjunto com fatores exógenos à escola e; que a valorização e as consequências da formação promovida na escola para os alunos, por vezes, só ocorre muito tempo após o encerramento do período escolar. Por fim, o trabalho encerra com a ideia de que os alunos e suas famílias e os próprios docentes não se equivocam no que se refere à imagem que representa um bom professor. Ocorre que o problema para a expansão desta realidade se articula com as ações dos sistemas de ensino em favor de uma expansão da escolarização, mas sem as devidas condições para a ampliação da qualidade do trabalho docente.This article presents an analysis of secondary school teachers in Argentina, considering the existence of a crisis in the traditional model of school of this school stage, suggesting that the conditions of teachers and students have changed, as other social conditions have changed.

À partir des résultats d'un survey effectué dans la ville de São Paulo auprès de 202 organisations civiles, on a trouvé que des organisations non-gouvernementales - des ONGs, de fonction, pratiquement délaissées par la littérature - et des mouvements sociaux cumulent plusieurs avantages structurels dans le réseau et constituent les grands acteurs de l'univers des organisations civiles étudié. Pourtant, pour des raisons qu'on expose dans cet article, ces organisations sont centrales à plusieurs titres, jouent des rôles divers dans le réseau et ont une importance inégale par rapport à d'autres types d'entités civiles périphériques ou de centralité intermédiaire.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é discutir sobre o desenvolvimento do direito à saúde no Brasil. Parte-se do processo de construção dos direitos sociais, passando pela assunção destes direitos na Carta Magna Brasileira até chegar às compreensões atuais de certos segmentos sociais sobre o direito à saúde. A análise baseia-se na pesquisa realizada em Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, a respeito da atuação conjunta entre conselhos de saúde e Ministério Público. Pode-se observar que o direito à saúde tem sido associado à ideia de acesso a serviços de saúde. Isto, no entanto, tem se mostrado ser um aspecto limitador na luta pela garantia e ampliação deste direito. Por este motivo, determinados segmentos da sociedade vêm adotando uma postura mais ativa em relação à compreensão sobre este direito. Tal compreensão tem rendido ganhos substanciais na luta pela ampliação do direito à saúde no Brasil. Assim, explicitar as diferentes concepções sobre o direito à saúde de um conselho de saúde que tem se demonstrado atuante no cenário nacional pode dar indícios sobre as formas de atuação possíveis e as estratégias desenvolvidas nestas instituições para a garantia deste direito.The objective of this paper is to discuss the development of the right to healthcare in Brazil.

The analysis is based on research conducted in Porto Alegre, state of Rio Grande do Sul, in regards to the joint action between health councils and the Public Ministry. It can be observed that the right to healthcare has been associated with the idea of access to healthcare services.

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available Este trabalho propõe-se a traçar questionamentos acerca da possível (reaproximação entre o atual paradigma constitucional e o exercício da jurisdição processual civil. A problemática reside, com efeito, na constatação teórica de incongruências ideológicas havidas no âmbito do direito processual civil brasileiro em contraposição à carga valorativa prevista na Constituição Federal de 1988. No ponto, através da exploração do método histórico e dedutivo, percebeu-se que o modelo processual vigente congrega valores individualistas, patrimonialistas e liberais, por meio dos quais o juiz/intérprete torna-se mero declarante do direito, sem preocupar-se conscientemente com a sua realização efetiva no mundo empírico. O que se vislumbra, no entanto, a partir dos parâmetros valorativos trazidos pela Carta Magna de 1988, é a necessidade de aprimoramento de tal sistema jurisdicional, sempre tendo em vista a preocupação de resguardar e dar efetividade e coesão aos direitos e garantias fundamentais assegurados pela Carta Política.

    Full Text Available A relação entre a Antropologia e a Educação tem sido marcada por aproximações e distanciamentos que mostram não ser esta uma história pronta e acabada; ao contrário, é ampla, difusa e complexa e, nos últimos anos, temos assistido a um processo de aproximação da Antropologia com a Educação como nunca se viu no Brasil. Mas, se, para a Antropologia brasileira esta parece ser uma nova realidade, outras experiências desenvolvidas na América Latina podem revelar um quadro fecundo ao exercício da reflexão epistemológica em perspectiva comparada. O objetivo deste artigo é analisar a relação entre a Antropologia e a Educação, com base na apropriação, por parte de pesquisadores do campo educacional brasileiro e argentino, da etnografia educacional proposta por Elsie Rockwell e Justa Ezpeleta, representantes do Departamento de Investigaciones Educativas (DIE do Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados (CINVESTAV do Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN do México.

    Full Text Available Envenomation by coral snakes (Micrurus sp. is one of the most dangerous injuries in America and it is considered as a serious medical emergency, however bites by these snakes appear to be rare. We analyzed epidemiological data, clinical signs and antivenom use in Argentina during the period between 1979-2003. During this period of study 46 non-fatal Micrurus bites were reported. The majority of cases were men from 31 to 40 years old. Bites occurred primarily in spring and summer. Most cases were reported from the northeast and northwest provinces of the country. The bites were mostly located on hands or feet and occurred mostly during agricultural activities and so mainly involved farmers. Only four cases occurred as a result of handling snakes. The median time it took for antivenom to be administrated was 60 minutes after the bite, and the median number of vials applied was 2. Local pain was mentioned and edema was reported in 41% of patients. All patients recovered without sequelae. This study showed a low incidence of Micrurus bites and low severity of envenomation. However, although no deaths have been reported during the last 30 years, given the toxicity of the venom of Micrurus snakes, the risk of severe envenomation should be considered.O envenenamento por corais (Micrurus sp. é um dos mais perigosos na América e considerado uma emergência médica grave ainda que acidentes por estas serpentes pareçam raros. Analisamos dados epidemiológicos e clínicos e o uso de soro antiofídico, durante o período de 1979-2003. As comunicações indicam 46 acidentes por Micrurus, aproximadamente dois casos anuais, sem registro. A maioria dos casos ocorreu em homens de idade entre 31 e 40 anos, principalmente no período de primavera e verão e provenientes do noroeste e nordeste do país. Os acidentes na sua maioria ocorreram em mãos e pés, durante atividades agrícolas envolvendo trabalhadores rurais. Apenas quatro acidentes foram relacionados a

O objetivo da pesquisa empírica realizada foi lançar um olhar jurídico e brasileiro sobre as manifestações orais do processo argentino. Na Capital Argentina, o discurso jurídico produzido sobre a oralidade está atrelado, exclusivamente, à Justiça Penal. Todavia, o trabalho de campo permitiu perceber que existem manifestações orais também na Justiça Civil da Capital Federal de Buenos Aires. Os dados empíricos sugerem que a restrição do estudo da oralidade ao âmbito penal se vincula, especialmente, ao critério presencial e obrigatório da figura do Juiz na audiência, que não ocorre no processo civil, onde a sua presidência é, normalmente, delegada a funcionários.

    Full Text Available Objectives: Misiones State is situated in the north-east of Argentina. The main objective was to establish the evolution of syphilis in Posadas city (300.000 inhabitants from 1997 to 2000. Methods: Outpatients were studied at the STD clinics during 1997. Records of all pregnant women with babies due to the months of April to June, from 1997 to 2000 (n = 4700, were studied. Syphilis was confirmed by clinic, epidemiological and laboratory tests (VDRL and FTA-ABS. Results: Higher incidence of primary syphilis in outpatients was established among 15-19 year-old women and in 20-24 year-old men. The percentages of pregnant women with syphilis were 2.1% (1997, 2.6% (1998, 4.6% (1999 and 3.7% (2000. The most vulnerable age group was 15 to 19 year-old. Geographical distribution of cases changed from four clusters in 1997 to a wide occurrence in all city quarters with lower socioeconomic level (30% of population. Conclusion: Posadas city had an increase in cases of syphilis in pregnant women from 1997 to 1999. This evolution indicates that traditional STD-Aids programs have had no effect on safe sex practices, specially among adolescents. Home by home visits aimed at improving prenatal control as a priority, started in 1999. The incidence of the disease became stable in 2000, but still at a high rate. It is necessary to continue and improve the outreach activities. A cooperative program in these big "twin" cities: Encarnación (Paraguay and Posadas (Argentina - will be also of great help for syphilis control in the area.Objetivos: O estado de Misiones está situado no noroeste argentino, nas fronteiras oeste e norte com o Brasil e a leste do Paraguai.

Os postos de trabalho perdidos, a partir da profunda crise que assolou a década de 90, passam a ser restituídos, segundo as análises econômicas da Organização Internacional do Trabalho – OIT –, Comissão Econômica para América Latina e o Caribe – Cepal – e governo argentino. Utilizamos como referências os relatórios da situação de emprego na América Latina elaborados pela OIT e pela Cepal, como também estudos e pesquisas acerca da situação do emprego e desemprego juvenil na Argentina. Esse processo de recuperação econômica traz como preocupações centrais, de um lado, as altas taxas de desemprego juvenil; de outro, a necessidade de diminuição da informalidade do trabalho para esse segmento. The article gives a reflection on the period of economic recovery in Argentina (2003-2007, considered by economists a period of consolidation. The Jobs lost from the deep crisis that struck the 90 are being returned, according to the economic analysis of the International Labour Organization – ILO, Economic Commission For Latin America and the Caribbean – ECLAC and the Argentine government. Used as references to the reports of the employment situation in Latin America developed by the ILO and ECLAC, as well the studies and research about the situation of youth employment and unemployment in Argentina. This process of economic recovery brings as central concerns: on one hand, high rates of youth unemployment, on the other the need to reduce informal employment for this segment.

Isn't this a dimension which is beyond our field? Can we say that the disaster that befell the culture would not have had but little or no consequence on our "theory", our "practice" our "art"? Isn't it amazing that we follow the psychoanalytic task as if the wave of eruption of terror and barbarism in culture had not shaken the four walls of our offices?

    In 1987 Argentina had a population of 31.5 million, with an annual rate of increase of 1.6%. The total fertility rate was 3.3, and the birth rate was 24/1000 population. Mortality stood at 8/1000 population, and the infant mortality rate was 35.3/1000 live births. Life expectancy at birth is 70 years. 84% of the population lives in Argentina's urban areas. Current government policies call for regional development to maintain and increase population in rural areas and control growth in urban centers. 90% of the population is of European descent, largely as a result of high rates of immigration during the 1880s-1930s from countries such as Spain and Italy. In 1985 the gross national product per capita was US$2130. Argentina is rich in resources and almost self-sufficient in terms of basic foodstuffs, power supply, and advanced communication networks. On the other hand, political conflicts and economic crises have hindered the realization of both human and natural resource potential. 80% of the value of export products is the amount due in interest on foreign debts.

Realizou-se uma busca ativa em diversas fontes de informação para quantificá-los e caracterizá-los: Comunicações de Acidentes de Trabalho, Registros de Ocorrência Policial, notícias publicadas na imprensa, relatórios sindicais, Certidões de Óbito, Boletins de Emergência de hospitais da rede pública, laudos do Instituto Médico Legal, carteiras de trabalho e fichas de empresas onde aconteceram esses acidentes. Em entrevistas com trabalhadores e técnicos nos locais dos acidentes e com famílias das vítimas, identificaram-se as circunstâncias em que ocorreram as mortes e seus impactos no núcleo familiar. Do total de 74 óbitos, a CAT foi emitida apenas em cerca de 30% dos casos, o que representa grande entrave para as famílias das vítimas obterem os benefícios previdenciários. O expressivo número de acidentes fatais ocorridos reflete a ausência de uma política de segurança efetiva nas empresas e a adoção de práticas de terceirização caracterizadas por uma seqüência de subcontratações, inclusive ilegais, que expõem operários a condições e relações laborais precárias e a desproteção social.

O conceito de sociedade civil, em Gramsci, conforme o ‘Caderno do Cárcere’ e sua releitura de Hegel e Marx, apontam luzes para entender as relações de poder na sociedade contemporânea nos processos de mudanças (estrutural/superestrutural, nas tramas privadas dos aparelhos privados de hegemonia.  Para Gramsci não há hegemonia ou direção política e ideológica sem o conjunto das organizações materiais que compõem a sociedade civil. Tais organizações, denominada de aparelhos privados de hegemonia, possui autonomia para manifestação e base material própria, na perspectiva de legitimação dos interesses da classe dominante.  O objetivo principal da investigação filosófica é entender as relações de poder no campo do Estado e dos aparelhos privados de hegemonia possível e impossível.

    Full Text Available Information concerning the disease burden of viral gastroenteritis has important implications for the use and monitoring the impact of public health policies. The present study, carried out in Córdoba city, Argentina, documents the epidemiology of severe viral diarrhea as well as the burden of viral gastrointestinal disease in the hospital children admission. A total of 133 stools were collected from hospitalized children (Town Childhood Hospital suffering from acute diarrhea and studied for the presence of Group A rotavirus, astrovirus and adenovirus 40/41 by enzyme-immuno assay, between November 1997 and October 1998. Enteric viruses accounted for 42.1% of the total diarrheal cases analyzed. Group A rotaviruses, astroviruses, adenoviruses 40/41 and mixed infections were found in 35.3, 4.5, 1.5, and 0.8% studied specimens respectively. We estimated that 1 in 27 children in the 0-35 month-old cohort/range would be annually hospitalized for a viral gastroenteritis illness. The major impact on viral diarrhea lies on rotaviral infection, accouting for 84.0% of the viral diarrheal cases analyzed and for approximately one third of severe diarrheas requiring hospital admission in Córdoba City, Argentina.Dados a respeito do impacto das gastrenterites virais têm implicações importantes para o monitoraramento do impacto das políticas de saúde pública. O presente estudo, feito na cidade de Córdoba, Argentina, documenta a epidemiologia da diarréia viral severa como também o impacto que a mesma representa na admissão hospitalar de crianças. Pesquisou-se a presença de Rotavírus grupo A, Astrovírus e Adenovírus 40/41 por ensaio imuno-enzimático em 133 amostras de fezes obtidas durante o período de novembro de 1997 a outubro de 1998, de crianças hospitalizadas por diarréia aguda. Os virus entéricos constituíram 42,1% do total de casos de diarréia analisados. Encontraram-se Rotavírus Grupo A, Astrovírus, Adenovírus 40/41 e infec

    Full Text Available La zona central de la Patagonia, Argentina, se encuentra sometida a explotación petrolera y sus suelos se caracterizan por ser deficientes en nitrógeno. Esto causaría un efecto negativo en los procesos de atenuación natural que se desarrollan en los suelos contaminados con hidrocarburos. El objeto de este estudio fue determinar cual es el efecto de la deficiencia de nitrógeno sobre la biodegradación de los hidrocarburos en un suelo de la Patagonia, Argentina. Se trabajó con tres microcosmos a los que se les realizó tratamientos diferentes. En uno se monitoreo la atenuación natural del sistema, en otro la fertilización con nitrógeno (N, fósforo (P y potasio (K, y en el último la fertilización con P y K. Durante el seguimiento se determinaron mineralización y medición de hidrocarburos, y se realizaron recuentos bacterianos y determinación de nitrato, nitrito y amonio. Los resultados indican que es posible la biodegradación de hidrocarburos en el suelo deficiente de nitrógeno de la Patagonia estudiado en tiempos mas prolongados que en aquellos que se realiza una fertilización con nitrógeno. El nitrógeno necesario para el proceso sería obtenido por los microorganismos del suelo por fijación biológica.

    Full Text Available O artigo analisa a singularidade de metodologias utilizadas em processos de avaliação da qualidade da formação pós-graduada em Saúde Pública em dois países da América Latina Argentina e Brasil. Procedeu-se a uma busca em sítios da internet que abordavam os temas "formação em saúde pública" e "metodologias de avaliação de qualidade", além da revisão de documentos e bibliografia sobre o tema. A análise considerou as seguintes dimensões: o contexto político-econômico na América Latina nos últimos dez anos (1994-2004, as reformas nos sistemas educacionais (com ênfase na área da pós-graduação e as metodologias de avaliação de qualidade implementadas. Foram identificadas semelhanças entre os sistemas de avaliação em vigor em ambos os países, assim como debilidades nesses processos: avaliação associada a supervisão e controle, e não a redirecionamento e reorientação do ensino, e obrigatoriedade dos cursos ajustarem-se a um modelo padrão definido pelos especialistas.

    Full Text Available Este artigo utiliza a análise insumo-produto para mensurar e avaliar, de uma perspectiva sistêmica, a estrutura do agronegócio no Mercosul. O processo metodológico desenvolvido permitiu verificar, para 1990, que o agronegócio do Mercosul responde por 29,18% do PIB do bloco. Uma análise mais particularizada indicou que o agronegócio da Argentina responde por 33,93% do PIB desse país, o do Brasil por 27,39%, o do Chile por 40,71% e o do Uruguai por 60,59%. Verificou-se também a coexistência de três etapas de desenvolvimento em que a produção rural se industrializa: o Brasil, com um agronegócio alimentar em vias de industrialização avançado; a Argentina e o Chile, que estão num processo de industrialização acelerado, sem, contudo, atingir o nível de economias alimentares industrializadas; o Uruguai, com uma economia alimentar. A estrutura do comércio mostrou um grau de dependência limitada em importados, no caso da montante, e um grau de dependência relativamente mais elevado em exportações, no caso da produção rural e da jusante. Por sua vez, a estrutura de exportações intrabloco da produção rural e da produção agroindustrial evidenciou que os fluxos de comércio são canalizados, majoritariamente, para as mais diversas cadeias produtivas da região. Portanto, embora os agronegócios da região sejam significativamente diferentes em termos de tamanho econômico, desenvolvimento industrial e dotação de recursos, há complementaridade econômica, bem como potencialidades para uma maior integração econômica dos países-membros do Mercosul.The article uses input-output analysis to measure and evaluate, from a systemic perspective, the structure of Mercosul's agribusiness. The methodological process showed, for the year of 1990, that Mercosul's agribusiness accounted for 29,18% of the block's GDP. A detailed analysis indicated that Argentina's agribusiness accounted for 33,93% of the country's GDP, Brazil's for 27

    Full Text Available A promulgação da Lei no 11.638/2007 e pronunciamentos emitidos pelo Comitê de Pronunciamentos Contábeis (CPC marcam o início da convergência das Normas Brasileiras às Normas Internacionais de Contabilidade (IFRS. Algumas dessas normas tratam do reconhecimento das receitas advindas dos contratos de construção, e isso impactou diretamente o setor da construção civil. Neste sentido, o objetivo deste trabalho é analisar quais as normas advindas da adoção das IFRS pelo Brasil causaram alterações no Balanço Patrimonial das empresas do setor da construção civil. A pesquisa se enquadra como um estudo empírico e descritivo. O universo da análise compreendeu as empresas do setor de construção civil com ações negociadas na BM&FBOVESPA que reapresentaram seus relatórios contábeis referentes aos exercícios de 2008 e 2009. Como resultado, observou-se que ocorreram variações na estrutura patrimonial das empresas pesquisadas, no que se refere ao ativo total, passivo exigível e patrimônio líquido. Contudo, através do teste de Wilcoxon, tais variações não se apresentaram estatisticamente significativas. Dentre as normas que mais provocaram alterações no balanço patrimonial destacam-se: o CPC 26 (IAS 1 no que tange a segregação dos impostos diferidos em circulante e não circulante, o CPC 25 (IAS 37 referente ao reconhecimento de valores em juízo e depósitos judiciais e a OCPC 01 quanto ao reconhecimento das permutas.

    Full Text Available A linha de pesquisa que desenvolvo junto a Universidade Estadual de Maringá, denominada História da Hospitalidade e do Turismo no Brasil e América Latina, me aproximou de três leituras fundamentais, que me permitiram compreender a importância política e histórica do presidente Getúlio Vargas, e passar a admirá-lo como um estadista de perfil autoritário, conservador e nacionalista, mas também, arrojado na montagem e administração do aparelho ideológico de Estado. A primeira dessas leituras foi o Diário, elaborado por Celina Vargas do Amaral Peixoto, neta de Getúlio Vargas, livro publicado em 1995. Este título é importante dentro da historiografia nacional, pois o personagem da História que trabalhamos é o próprio narrador do fato, portanto, conhece a situação que expõe e focaliza o seu instante presente. A segunda leitura foi o livro Getúlio Vargas, meu pai, escrito por sua filha, Alzira Vargas do Amaral Peixoto, que ocupou o cargo de auxiliar de gabinete junto à Casa Civil de 1937 até 1945, portanto, constituindo-se em fonte de imenso valor histórico, pois é um relato familiar publicado em 1960. A terceira leitura é a Revista Mensal de Estudos Brasileiros, publicada pela Divisão de Imprensa e Propaganda – DIP, entre 1941 a 1945. A Revista era responsável pela propaganda oficial do governo, promoção pessoal do presidente, censura e divulgação cultural. Editada por Almir de Andrade, é considerada o principal órgão de divulgação do Estado Novo. Existem inúmeras páginas na história brasileira, referentes a esse personagem nacionalista, carismático, autoritário e populista chamado Getúlio Dorneles Vargas, que depôs o governo do presidente Washington Luís por meio de um movimento armado de oposição, e governou o Brasil de 1930 a 1945 e de 1951 a 1954.

    Full Text Available A aquisição da Varig pela Gol enseja uma análise da importância das operações de aquisições na estratégia empresarial do setor da aviação civil brasileiro. Neste artigo foi contextualizada, descrita e analisada a trajetória de duas empresas brasileiras e uma aquisição que reconfigurou o mercado de aviação civil nacional, visando entender melhor os seus possíveis desdobramentos para os seus diversos stakeholders e para a economia brasileira. A leitura que pode ser feita da aquisição é a de que, por um lado, mitiga um problema político, econômico e social, que seria a falência total da Varig, e por outro, para a Gol, possibilitará um crescimento rápido no mercado internacional, além de permitir crescimento no mercado interno pelo uso de espaços em aeroportos e da marca Varig. Além disso, foi uma aquisição defensiva, que impediu o ingresso de novos concorrentes estrangeiros, que aumentou o poder de mercado e de competição de uma empresa brasileira no mercado internacional. Enfim, a aquisição proporcionar um maior desenvolvimento econômico e tecnológico para o país no segmento – além de fortalecer o setor turístico, cuja importância na geração de empregos e na atração de divisas é cada vez mais reconhecida.

However, 86% of them lived close to the Marapa river forest gallery and related wooded areas. Over 1,013 sand flies were collected; Lutzomyia neivai (Pinto, 1926 was prevalent at all the sites (92.3%, while Lutzomyia migonei (França, 1920 (6.7% and Lu. cortelezzii (Brèthes, 1923 (1% were also found. The spatial distribution of Lu. neivai overlapped that of the cases, with higher abundance in microfocal hot spots close to the river in stable vegetated habitats or modified habitats with shadow and animal blood sources. The cumulative outcome of anthropic, ecological and climatic factors could have contributed to the onset of the outbreak.Após um aumento nos casos notificados na cidade de JB Alberdi, Provincia de Tucumán, no ano de 2003, foram estudados a distribuição de flebotomíneos e casos de leishmaniose tegumentar nos arredores de JB Alberdi, e na área próxima à Província de Catamarca.

    The pegmatite mineral qingheiite Na2(Mn2+,Mg,Fe2+)2(Al,Fe3+)(PO4)3 has been studied by a combination of SEM and EMP, Raman and infrared spectroscopy. The studied sample was collected from the Santa Ana pegmatite, Argentina. The mineral occurs as a primary mineral in lithium bearing pegmatite, in association with beausite and lithiophilite. The Raman spectrum is characterized by a very sharp intense Raman band at 980 cm-1 assigned to the PO43- symmetric stretching mode. Multiple Raman bands are observed in the PO43- antisymmetric stretching region, providing evidence for the existence of more than one phosphate unit in the structure of qingheiite and evidence for the reduction in symmetry of the phosphate units. This concept is affirmed by the number of bands in the ν4 and ν2 bending regions. No intensity was observed in the OH stretching region in the Raman spectrum but significant intensity is found in the infrared spectrum. Infrared bands are observed at 2917, 3195, 3414 and 3498 cm-1 are assigned to water stretching vibrations. It is suggested that some water is coordinating the metal cations in the structure of qingheiite.

    Full Text Available Na Argentina, a renovação cultural ocorrida a partir de 1955 possibilitou à psicanálise deixar de ser uma prática privada reservada às elites da capital. A ampliação dessa clínica foi favorecida tanto pela abertura de novos espaços institucionais públicos como por transformações ocorridas nos já existentes, onde alguns passaram a adotar técnicas de "inspiração psicanalítica". É o caso, por exemplo, da psicoterapia de grupo. Ainda que derivada da psicanálise e exercida por médicos e psicólogos, constituiu-se como uma alternativa, ao mesmo tempo, de atendimento e formação, o que fez com que essa prática deixasse de ser patrimônio exclusivo dos membros da Associação Psicanalítica Argentina (APA. Assim, a instituição oficial perdia o monopólio do "uso legítimo" da psicanálise. Neste trabalho é analisado particularmente o caso do Serviço de Psicopatologia do Hospital Lanús, dirigido por Mauricio Goldenberg entre 1956 e 1972, já que exemplifica muito bem este fenômeno de expansão e transformação da psicanálise. Foi adotada uma metodologia clássica no campo da história, baseada na análise de textos e documentos da época.Después de 1955 se produjo en Argentina una renovación socio-cultural en el seno de la cual el psicoanálisis dejó de ser una práctica privada reservada a las élites de la capital. Accedió entonces a nuevos espacios institucionales, en los que sufrió varias transformaciones que le permitieron ampliar su público. Por ejemplo, la utilización que se hizo en algunas instituciones públicas de técnicas "de inspiración analítica", como la psicoterapia de grupos, implicó una notable multiplicación de la cantidad de pacientes en tratamiento. Al mismo tiempo, esa práctica derivada del psicoanálisis ya no era patrimonio exclusivo de los miembros de la Asociación Psicoanalítica Argentina, al ser ejercida por médicos y psicólogos que no pertenecían a sus filas.

    Full Text Available Among the new studies on the Spanish civil war we can highlight the works devoted to those men involved in the third Spain, who were sought ways of peace, without expecting the outcome of the war. Salvador de Madariaga was one of the most distinguished men of the third Spain. Here we transcribe his correspondence with the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Anthony Eden. These documents, together with the entire legacy of Madariaga, are kept in the Instituto José Cornide de Estudios Coruñeses. The proposals of Madariaga, like other peace attempts prior to April 1, 1939, were unsuccessful. As we can see in these letters, British Diplomacy preferred to keep a noninterventionist approach to the war instead of the mediation as was proposed by Madariaga.

    Entre los nuevos estudios sobre la guerra civil española destacan las dedicadas a los hombres de la tercera España, que buscaron caminos de paz sin esperar el resultado de la contienda. Entre esos sobresale Salvador de Madariaga, del que recogemos aquí su correspondencia en 1936 con el ministro de Exteriores británico Anthony Eden, que se conserva en el fondo Madariaga del Instituto José Cornide de Estudios Coruñeses. Las propuestas de Madariaga, como otros intentos de paz anteriores al 1 de abril de 1939, cuyo 70 aniversario se cumple este año, resultaron fallidos, tanto por la postura de la diplomacia europea, especialmente británica, como por el enfrentamiento de concepciones antitéticas y radicales que supuso la guerra, que no dejó espacio para la mediación y el acuerdo entre partes.

    Primordial, or terrestrial natural radionuclides, are found in different amounts in the environment. In dwellings, an important dose increment is due to building materials, which contribute for both the external gamma dose from the radionuclides of the {sup 238}U, {sup 235}U and {sup 232}Th series and the natural {sup 40}K and the internal dose, due mainly to {sup 222}Rn inhalation. Once granitic rocks are widely used both as construction materials or structural flooring, those rocks can become an important dose source, depending on the content of concentrations of radioactivity, and the construction application. In this work, a database for granitic rocks of the crystalline shield of Parana (mainly in the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba, RMC), used in civil construction, was generated, evaluating in terms of radiological protection the external and internal dose increments, caused by the use of these materials. Also, possible correlations between the {sup 226}Ra activity concentration, the {sup 222}Rn exhalation rate, density, porosity and chemical composition (oxide content) in these samples had been studied. The external dose was assessed by gamma-ray spectrometry with High-Purity Germanium detectors, where the activity concentration of the radionuclides {sup 232}Th, {sup 226}Ra and {sup 40}K are the parameters used in dosimetric models (Dosimetric Indexes), which established limits in accordance with the form, amount and application of material of construction. For the calculation of the annual effective external dose it was assumed a room model with dimensions of 4 m x 5 m x 2:8 m and all walls internally covered with 2 cm thickness of granite and an annual exposure time of 7000 h as suggested by the European Commission of Radiological Protection for internal superficial coating materials. The internal exposure was assessed from the radon concentration in the air of the room model, simulated from the superficial exhalation rate of {sup 222}Rn. The exhalation

    Full Text Available Este artigo descreve a elaboração de uma proposta de mudança para melhoria do processo produtivo, realizada com base nos pressupostos da Teoria das Restrições. Segundo esta teoria, uma restrição é qualquer elemento que afete negativamente um sistema, dificultando a obtenção de um melhor desempenho em relação a sua meta, mas que também pode ser explorado de forma que se obtenha uma melhoria de seus resultados. O trabalho foi realizado em uma indústria de lajes pré-fabricadas localizada na cidade de Manaus (AM, e se restringiu à fabricação de vigotas treliçadas, quando se constatou gargalo significativo na linha de produção observada e gasto indesejável com horas extras. Para o aprimoramento do processo produtivo, foram coletados e analisados dados e aplicados os fundamentos da Teoria das Restrições, com a quantificação dos efeitos positivos a serem obtidos com a efetivação das medidas propostas. O texto discorre ainda sobre a Teoria das Restrições em si e aponta de que forma a sua aplicação pode resultar em ganhos mensuráveis nos processos da construção civil e em outros campos.

    pacientes humanos com lesões cutâneas de leishmaniose na Província de Santiago del Estero, no Norte da Argentina. Os procedimentos de diagnóstico foram: biópsias de lesões para utilização em esfregaços e inoculação em hamster; aspiração (com agulha de úlceras, para cultura "in vitro". As técnicas imunodiagnósticas empregadas foram a IFAT-IgG e o teste intradérmico de Montenegro. Oito cepas de parasitas foram isoladas, sendo estas obtidas de pacientes com lesões ativas. Todas as cepas foram inicialmente caracterizadas biologicamente por seu comportamento na infecção experimental do hamster, mensuração dos amastigotas e promastigotas e crescimento "in vitro". As mesmas oito cepas foram logo identificadas e caracterizadas a nível de espécie, devido a sua reatividade frente a um painel de anticorpos monoclonais subgênero e espécie-específicos. Isso foi realizado utilizando o teste de Imunofluorescência Indireta (IFAT/MAbs e de um procedimento de Dot-ELISA. Nós concluímos a partir da análise de serodema dos isolados argentinos que: MHOM/AR/92/SE-1; SE-2; SE-4; SE-8; SE-8-I; SE-30; SE-34 e SE-36 são Leishmania (Viannia braziliensis. Entretanto, três dos isolados de Leishmania (SE-1; SE-2 e SE-30 não foram reconhecidos quando testados com um anticorpo monoclonal de reconhecida alta espécie-especificidade (clone B-18, marcador consagrado de Leishmania (Viannia braziliensis, revelando a existência de dois tipos de serodemas entre as cepas estudadas. Cinco dos oito extratos solúveis de Leishmania foram submetidos à eletroforese em gel de amido de camada fina e subseqüentemente examinadas a fim de constatar a atividade das enzimas MPI, MDH, 6PGD, NH, NH-D, SOD, GPI e ES. Fundamentados nos estudos dos corridos eletroforéticos obtidos nos ensaios isoenzimáticos chegamos à conclusão que as cepas MHOM/AR/92 SE-1; SE-2; SE-4; SE-8 e SE-8-I são Leishmania (Viannia braziliensis.

    Full Text Available Os relacionamentos interorganizacionais têm sido tema de diversos estudos e hipóteses que dão conta da sua importância para o sucesso das organizações. Um modo de classificar a forma dos relacionamentos entre organizações é a proposta por Uzzi (1997,que classifica os relacionamentos em imersos socialmente ou de mercado. Estes relacionamentos interorganizacionais afetam a vida das organizações e são de vital importância para o entendimento do mercado em que as organizações estão inseridas. Neste sentido, essa pesquisa teve como perguntas centrais: Qual o desempenho das organizações socialmente imersas? Seu desempenho é maior por conta desse relacionamento? Existe relação entre o desempenho e o tipo de relacionamento? Para atingir tal objetivo, propomos um modelo de medição de desempenho das organizações envolvidas baseado no MCDA-C, metodologia de apóio a decisão construtivista, aplicado a um conjunto de organizações da construção civil do Balneário Açores, localizado em Florianópolis, Santa Catarina. Esse grupo de organizações foi escolhido por base estudo da imersão social, anterior a essa pesquisa, desenvolvido por Wehrle (2008. Como resultado, foi possível verificar que os relacionamentos imersos afetam o desempenho das organizações, sendo benéficos para as organizações apenas quando essas conseguem gerenciá-los. Portanto, ter muitos relacionamentos imersos pode prejudicar o desempenho das organizações.

    Full Text Available We have studied the prevalence of Trichinella spiralis, Leptospira spp. and Salmonella spp. in rats and opossums that inhabit poultry farms of Exaltación de la Cruz, Buenos Aires, Argentina, to determine the potential sanitary risk for humans that are in contact with these animals. The study was carried out on 48 poultry farms between spring 1999 and winter 2001. The study of opossums began in winter 2000. During the study period we captured 152 Rattus norvegicus, 3 Rattus rattus, 16 Didelphis albiventris and 1 Lutreolina crassicaudata. We have registered the presence of rats and opossums in 70% and 27% of the studied farms, respectively. The percentage of farms with rats was independent of the presence or absence of pigs. We did not detect the presence of Leptospira spp. and Trichinella spiralis in any individual. We detected the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis in one Rattus norvegicus and one Didelphis albiventris. According to our results, the rats and opossums of poultry farms may not report a risk factor in the transmission of Trichinella and Leptospira under the present conditions; but the detection of Salmonella Enteritidis in rats as well as in opossums suggests the idea of applying prophylactics measurements on poultry farms.A prevalência de Trichinella spiralis, Leptospira spp. e Salmonella spp. foi estudada em ratos e gambás que habitam granjas avícolas da região de Exaltación de la Cruz, Buenos Aires, Argentina, com o objetivo de determinar o potencial risco sanitário para pessoas que ficam em contato com esses animais. O estudo foi realizado entre a primavera de 1999 e o inverno de 2001 em 48 granjas avícolas. O estudo em gambás iniciou-se no inverno de 2000.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é verificar se as empresas do setor de construção civil reconhecem não só suas receitas como também seus custos com base no Pronunciamento Técnico CPC 17: contratos de construção. Para isso, foi realizada uma análise de conteúdo nas notas explicativas, do período de 2009 e 2010, de 22 empresas do setor de construção civil listadas na BM&FBovespa a fim de investigar se estas estão atendendo os requisitos do CPC 17 em relação ao reconhecimento das receitas e custos. Esta pesquisa é classificada como qualitativa, quantitativa, descritiva e documental. Nos achados foram encontrados que 100% das empresas não apresentaram a modalidade de costplus, porém 68% utilizam o método da percentagem completada (POC. Segundo esse método, a receita contratual deve ser proporcional aos custos contratuais incorridos em cada etapa de medição. Os resultados demonstram que 41% das empresas apresentaram os valores dos custos de mão de obra no local da execução do contrato, incluindo sua supervisão e os custos de materiais usados na construção. Dessa forma, conclui-se que 59% atenderam a dois dos subitens analisados no que tange ao reconhecimento dos custos, no entanto mais de 50% atenderam aos requisitos da OCPC 01, que trata da formação do custo do imóvel, objeto da incorporação imobiliária. Por fim, quanto à divulgação das informações, observou-se que nenhuma das empresas divulga suas receitas e custos com base nos subitens do CPC 17. Portanto, o resultado das empresas pode se mostrar diferente do que realmente deveria ser para efeito de tributação.

    Full Text Available Atualmente, o debate sobre a natureza da mente humana vem tomando novos rumos graças ao desenvolvimento de diversos estudos, no campo das neurociências, que investigam a localização das funções cerebrais. Esses trabalhos vêm contribuindo para uma melhor compreensão dos substratos neurais das funções mentais, bem como da etiologia de diversos transtornos mentais. Entretanto, o conhecimento acumulado pela neurociência não ocorreu de forma súbita. Na verdade, o estudo das relações entre o cérebro e a mente não é recente. Da pré-história aos dias atuais, surgiram vários tipos de questionamentos a respeito da possível materialidade e localização das funções mentais humana. O presente trabalho apresenta, de forma histórica, como populações pré-históricas, assim como as primeiras civilizações, localizadas no Egito, na Mesopotâmia, na Índia e na China, desenvolveram e utilizaram conceitos relacionados com a alma, a mente e o cérebro humano.Currently, the debate about the nature of the human mind is taking new directions through the development of several studies in the field of neuroscience which investigates the location of brain functions. These studies have contributed to a better understanding of the neural substrates of mental functions and the etiology of various mental disorders. However, the knowledge developed by neuroscience did not occur abruptly. Indeed, the study of mind-brain relationship is not new. From pre-history to the present days, various different types of inquiries have been made about the possible materiality and location of human mental functions. This paper presents, in a historic manner, how prehistoric populations as well as early civilizations located in Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, and China developed and employed concepts related to the soul, the mind and the human brain.

    Full Text Available A proliferação de padrões ambientais (ou requisitos voluntários, formula-dos e administrados por organizações não governamentais - de forma total-mente independente ou com diversos graus de participação governamental - tornou-se questão problemática para muitos países de menor desenvolvimento relativo. Essas fontes não tradicionais de regulamentação global podem constituir barreiras injustificáveis ao comércio internacional que escapam da competência da OMC. Nesse contexto, objetiva-se verificar em que medida as regras multilaterais de comércio podem ser aplicadas a restrições comerciais impostas por atores não estatais. Na medida em que as regras da OMC são aplicáveis unicamente a Estados-membros, constata-se a importância de averiguar de que forma esses padrões privados voluntários envolvem a participação do governo ou como esses padrões podem ser atribuídos aos governos no que concerne às regras da OMC.

Privilegiando as decisões judiciais, sentença e acórdão, busca-se ressaltar os principais discursos produzidos nos autos de processo, os quais demonstram a sistemática exclusão das comunidades rurais do ensino superior. Para além das controvérsias acerca dos princípios da constitucionalidade, da legalidade e da isonomia, torna-se possível perceber que se de um lado o MPF reforça a tese de que o ensino jurídico é essencialmente desenvolvido no e para um “mundo urbano”; de outro lado, há os argumentos da UFG e do Incra que possibilitam repensar o próprio conceito de universidade e da educação como um direito de todos, propondo uma universidade que englobe as diferentes realidades sociais brasileiras.

    velocidade de informações e das constantes descobertas científicas do Mundo Contemporâneo. Nesse diálogo entre as inovações científicas e a adequação jurídica aos comportamentos delas advindos, depreende-se que o direito não pode mais ficar à espera de casos concretos para regulamentar o assunto. Ao contrário, deve o direito ter o condão de trazer mecanismos assecuratórios eficientes às relações contratuais e extracontratuais firmadas entre as partes envolvidas, e também da sociedade de forma geral, se pensarmos na proteção da vida das gerações futuras. De uma forma ou de outra, seu objetivo principal continua sendo a proteção dos direitos fundamentais, principalmente o direito à vida digna. Tal tarefa não é fácil, pois o problema encontrado no presente tema é que tampouco a ciência tem resposta quando é inquirida sobre as prováveis conseqüências das pesquisas que envolvem a manipulação genética células vegetais e humanas. Refrear tais pesquisas não se faz oportuno, ante à esperança da cura de doenças e de maior qualidade de vida. Por outro lado, “brincar de Deus” é tarefa preocupante, ante os danos que porventura possam causar à humanidade. A legislação global, na grande maioria, não tem apresentado posições favoráveis à manipulação genética de células de embriões. O presente trabalho vem de encontro com as lacunas deixadas pela Lei e as situações que reclama maior atenção: a questão do dano genético e sua reparação civil, principalmente com relação à aplicação, nesses casos, da Teoria Objetiva da responsabilidade civil.

    Full Text Available A dinâmica do mundo econômico e financeiro nas organizações coloca em movimento muito mais que estratégias de gestão e de administração do patrimônio, pois requer uma dinamicidade no conjunto de informações e aporte de procedimentos que organizem e auxiliem o controle patrimonial. As recentes alterações na estrutura conceitual e da legislação societária apresentam novas demandas ao repertório de procedimentos contábeis buscando garantir a confiabilidade nas decisões mediante a divulgação de informações tempestivas. Neste cenário de mudanças e instabilidades esta pesquisa teve como objetivo identificar as formas de obtenção de recursos financeiros utilizados por empresas do segmento da construção civil que negociaram suas ações na BM&F Bovespa. Com este fim foi realizada uma pesquisa bibliográfica e de levantamento de dados. O levantamento abrangeu as demonstrações dos exercícios de 2007 a 2009, no qual se verificou que mais de 80% das empresas captaram recursos principalmente por meio de atividades de financiamento. Quanto a esse grupo de atividades, pode-se perceber que no ano de 2007 a principal forma de capitalização foi por meio de aumento do capital social. Já nos anos de 2008 e de 2009 a obtenção de empréstimos, financiamentos e a emissão de debêntures foram a maior fonte de capitalização. Nota-se que a DFC é um demonstrativo dinâmico nas informações que destacam fontes de financiamento das empresas, enfatizando a relevância dos processos de harmonização contábil, aliados à dinâmica de cenários econômicos que alteram normas e procedimentos, buscando ampliar o fluxo de informações e dinamizando o processo contábil.The dynamics of the financial and economic world demands more from organizations than strategies of management and administration of their capital.

Dangerous economic and intellectual trends, such as "globalization", the so-called Washington Consensus, dollarization, and FTAA (Free Trade Area of the Americas negotiations, have lost momentum and South America is moving gradually towards a more independent stance in the conduct of its economic and foreign policies. Changes have been much more significant in Argentina than in Brazil and this has become a source of some tension between the two major South American countries.

La hipótesis principal que recorre el texto es la siguiente: la medicalización de la sociedad, acentuada luego de las epidemias de cólera y fiebre amarilla de mediados del siglo XIX, ofreció a las elites públicas la posibilidad de construir dominios legítimos de intervención estatal. Intromisiones del Estado en la vida privada que, además de ser algo resistidas por la población, entraban en tensión con los principios teóricos del liberalismo que los propios miembros de la elite defendían.

The aim of adopting frame-legislation is to ensure the developement of civil procedures. The Council Regulations no. 44/2001 on the competence, the recognition and the enforcement of judiciary rulings in civil and commercial cases is a “real” Code of civil procedure in this matter, to be applied in the member states, thus ensuring the free circulation of the judiciary rulings according to the principles of mutual recognition, mutual trust and reinforcement of juridical security in the union. The community civil procedural code prevails over the national procedural code. The Regulations ensure the administration of the community justice and through their rules avoid the pronunciation, in the member states, of rulings that are irreconcilable with each other, the direct beneficiaries being legal and natural persons.

  10. Soft rocks in Argentina

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Giambastiani; Mauricio

    2014-01-01

    Soft rocks are a still fairly unexplored chapter in rock mechanics. Within this category are the clastic sedimentary rocks and pyroclastic volcanic rocks, of low to moderate lithification (consolidation, cemen-tation, new formed minerals), chemical sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks formed by minerals with Mohs hardness less than 3.5, such as limestone, gypsum, halite, sylvite, between the first and phyllites, graphitic schist, chloritic shale, talc, etc., among the latter. They also include any type of rock that suffered alteration processes (hydrothermal or weathering). In Argentina the study of low-strength rocks has not received much attention despite having extensive outcrops in the Andes and great impact in the design criteria. Correlation between geomechanical properties (UCS, deformability) to physical index (porosity, density, etc.) has shown promising results to be better studied. There are many studies and engineering projects in Argentina in soft rock geological environments, some cited in the text (Chihuído dam, N. Kirchner dam, J. Cepernic Dam, etc.) and others such as International Tunnel in the Province of Mendoza (Corredor Bioceánico), which will require the valuable contribution from rock mechanics. The lack of consistency between some of the physical and mechanical parameters explored from studies in the country may be due to an insufficient amount of information and/or non-standardization of criteria for testing materials. It is understood that more and better academic and professional efforts in improv-ing techniques will result in benefits to the better understanding of the geomechanics of weak rocks.

  12. Lei natural e lei civil em Locke

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gustavo Hessmann Dalaqua

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Resumo: O artigo aborda a relação entre lei natural e lei civil na filosofia de John Locke. Embora leituras consagradas tenham afirmado que a relação entre ambas é dedutiva, este artigo tentará apresentar uma interpretação diferente, qual seja, a de que a relação entre lei civil e lei natural é de determinação. Longe de ser mera dedução de uma lei natural imutável, a lei civil possui papel determinante com relação à lei natural. Como mostraremos, esta interpretação realça algo que Locke tinha em alta estima: o caráter deliberativo da lei natural. A deliberação dos cidadãos na legislatura cria, em certa medida, a lei natural. Os cidadãos são livres para determinar a lei, e a participação em tal determinação é crucial para a manutenção de sua liberdade política. Nesse sentido, como veremos, a liberdade política lockiana é tributária do republicanismo.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Theresa Züger

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This article points out a struggle of today’s societies with the traditional concepts of civil disobedience and stresses the need for reevaluation of the concept of civil disobedience for policy making and public discourse. Starting with a minimal definition of civil disobedience, the article introduces Hannah Arendt’s approach for a legitimisation of civil disobedience and discusses her ideas for digital actions, which are increasingly framed as digital forms of civil disobedience. Addressing WikiLeaks as an example of digital civil disobedience, the author problematises the internal secrecy of WikiLeaks and the focus on Julian Assange as a single decision-maker. Both aspects challenge Arendt’s understanding of legitimate civil disobedience. Even though traditional criteria of civil disobedience need to be revisited in the digital age, organisations or disobedience actors might themselves in their actions be well-advised to comply with the principles they fight for.

These studies have contributed to a better understanding of the neural substrates of mental functions and the etiology of various mental disorders. However, the knowledge developed by neuroscience did not occur abruptly. Indeed, the study of mind-brain relationship is not new. From pre-history to the present days, various different types of inquiries have been made about the possible materiality and location of human mental functions. This paper presents, in a historic manner, how prehistoric populations as well as early civilizations located in Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, and China developed and employed concepts related to the soul, the mind and the human brain.

    A list of possible modes of detecting advanced civilizations elsewhere in the universe is provided, including EM Alfven, and gravity waves, matter transfer, and exotica such as tachyons, black hole tunneling, and telepathy. Further study is indicated for low frequency radio wave propagation, which may travel along magnetic fields to reach the earth while laser beams are not favored because of the power needed for transmitting quanta instead of waves. IR, X ray, and UV astronomy are noted to be suitable for detecting signals in those ranges, while Alfven wave communication will be best observed by probes outside the orbit of Jupiter, where local anomalies have less effect. Particle propagation communication is viewed as unlikely, except as a trace of an extinct civilization, but panspermia, which involves interstellar spreading of seeds and/or spores, receives serious attention, as does laser probe or pellet propulsion.

    Full Text Available Tick paralysis (TP occurs worldwide and is caused by a neurotoxin secreted by engorged female ticks that affects the peripheral and central nervous system. The clinical manifestations range from mild or nonspecific symptoms to manifestations similar to Guillain-Barré syndrome, bulbar involvement, and death in 10% of the patients. The diagnosis of TP is clinical. To our knowledge, there are no formal reports of TP in humans in South America, although clusters of TP among hunting dogs in Argentina have been identified recently. In this paper, clinical features of two cases of TP occurring during 1994 in Jujuy Province, Argentina, are described.

Legal Nature Reserve is understood as the area of rural land that can not suffer human intervention by deforestation and exploitation of its resources. Its institution and subsequent registration with the Rural Environmental Registry is an propter rem obligation, given the tracking of it and the attachment to the holder of real right. It must be obeyed even that forests or other type of vegetation no longer exist in the property, which thus externalizes its institution being a mandatory requirement for regular registration of the property, making it impossible to any claim of its ignorance, because it clings to the ownership of the property, passing to new owners, they being able to be charged regardless of their proceeding.

    Full Text Available Peronismo e anti-peronismo definiram o padrão da rivalidade Brasil-Argentina no contexto do início da guerra fria. Inúmeros documentos diplomáticos brasileiros – ofícios, despachos, memorandos, telegramas – datados dos anos de 1946 a 1948 apresentavam em seus títulos temas como “infiltração argentina no Sul do Brasil”, “expansionismo político da Argentina”, “política expansionista da Argentina”, etc. Pode-se afirmar que o anti-peronismo consolidou-se em setores dirigentes do país, por meio de uma política que ultrapassava, de algum modo, o próprio peronismo. Por exemplo, a ideia de que a Argentina procurava expandir sua área de influência na América do Sul remonta, pelo menos ao período anterior a segunda grande guerra. Assim, a identificação da forma como se construiu o anti-peronismo no Brasil permite avaliar mais especificamente que interesses e quais setores alimentaram visões contrárias ao diálogo bilateral.

O romance, favorável à causa legalista, parece assumir uma posição mais política que os romances e histórias anteriores de Hemingway, mas, na verdade, desenvolve mais uma variação do típico “herói de Hemingway”, celebrado em quase toda a obra do autor: o indivíduo solitário, corajoso, destinado ao fracasso, mas determinado a extrair algum significado da vida em um mundo absurdo.

Entre sus propuestas educativas la cuestión corporal se constituyó en un problema central. El gobierno del cuerpo y, especialmente, la construcción de cierto tipo de masculinidad fue uno de los ejes centrales de su propuesta. Para construir cuerpos masculinos y viriles se "inventaron", en 1915, los Exploradores de Don Bosco. Dicha experiencia (gimnasia, marchas, paseos, excursiones, etc. reunió a niños y jóvenes pobres con el fin de modelar sus cuerpos y sus almas construyendo un universo moral y kinético específico. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, el siguiente artículo indaga cómo y porqué el movimiento de los Exploradores de Don Bosco generizó los cuerpos de los niños convirtiéndolos en "verdaderos" hombres y contra quienes luchó en su "cruzada masculina". Las fuentes a analizar son los documentos, circulares, textos y libros utilizados para formar a los Exploradores de Don Bosco en la Argentina.The salesians schools settled in Argentina in the end of the XIX century and they have been growing until the present time.

    2000-01-01

    This view of northern Patagonia, near El Cain, Argentina shows complexly eroded volcanic terrain, with basalt mesas, sinkholes, landslide debris, playas, and relatively few integrated drainage channels. Surrounding this site (but also extending far to the east) is a broad plateau capped by basalt, the Meseta de Somuncura. Here, near the western edge of the plateau, erosion has broken through the basalt cap in a variety of ways. On the mesas, water-filled sinkholes (lower left) are most likely the result of the collapse of old lava tubes. Along the edges of the mesas (several locations) the basalt seems to be sliding away from the plateau in a series of slices. Water erosion by overland flow is also evident, particularly in canyons where vegetation blankets the drainage channels (bright patterns, bottom of image). However, overland water flow does not extend very far at any location. This entire site drains to local playas, some of which are seen here (dark lakes with bright shores). While the water can reach the playas and then evaporate, what becomes of the eroded rock debris? Wind might excavate some of the finer eroded debris, but the fate of much of the missing bedrock remains mysterious.This anaglyph was generated by first draping a Landsat Thematic Mapper image over a topographic map from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, then producing the two differing perspectives, one for each eye. When viewed through special glasses, the result is a vertically exaggerated view of the Earth's surface in its full three dimensions. Anaglyph glasses cover the left eye with a red filter and the right eye with a blue filter.Landsat satellites have provided visible light and infrared images of the Earth continuously since 1972. SRTM topographic data match the 30-meter (99-foot) spatial resolution of most Landsat images and provide a valuable complement for studying the historic and growing Landsat data archive.

Partindo de uma abordagem qualitativa, dialética e jurisprudencial, este artigo analisa o Princípio Responsabilidade desenvolvido por hans jonas e realiza um diálogo com o instituto da responsabilidade civil ambiental, identificando, com apoio na legislação constitucional e infraconstitucional, as controvérsias doutrinárias acerca da natureza da responsabilidade estatal (objetiva ou subjetiva frente a casos de omissão da administração pública e à ocorrência de dano ambiental. Conclui-se que o Superior Tribunal de Justiça assume uma dimensão mais alargada do conceito de responsabilidade civil do Estado, demonstrando uma tendência pela responsabilidade civil objetiva com base no risco. Assim, o Brasil, salvo algumas divergências doutrinárias, adota a responsabilidade civil objetiva do Estado pela teoria do risco administrativo alicerçada no ato ilícito e na aceitação do risco.The Federal Constitution of 1988 is a 'water divisor' since it assumes the role of Environmental Constitution, causing a rapture of the concept of civil liability.

  18. Pediatric intensive care in Argentina.

    1993-09-01

    8.2% of the gross domestic product is spent annually on health care in Argentina, a country of 32 million people. There is 1 medical doctor of every 147,000 beds in a total 3180 hospitals. The infant mortality rate in Argentina is 24.5/1000 live births which is high compared to developed countries. Perinatal causes and congenital anomalies are the main cause of death after the neonatal period, and accidents, cardiac disease, and respiratory tract infections are the main causes of death among children over age 1 year. Argentina has approximately 35 pediatric intensive care units (ICU), but 154 of 244 beds are within or near the capital. Only 2 hospitals have pediatric intensive care fellowship programs, so full time dedicated staff is rare. 250 registered pediatricians dedicated to intensive care are in the Argentine Pediatric Society and the nurse/bed ratio is 1:2-1:3. Moreover, the country has neither postanesthesia recuperation units, burn units, chronic ventilation units, nor approved home assistance programs, and intermediate care is not clearly standardized. These inadequacies have led to a shortage of beds and the caring for of critically ill children in general pediatric or emergency wards in hospitals which lack adequate equipment; patients are often discharged inappropriately to clear bed space. Even so, prehospital and emergency room care tends to be provided without the necessary coordination with the pediatric ICU, and structural conditions regarding electrical self-sufficiency, air conditioning, and circulation are met in only few units. Despite the existence of these adverse conditions for the care of critically ill children, a pediatric organ transplant program developed since 1987 has demonstrated 70% to 100% survival rates for 16l orthotopic liver and 9 heart transplants, respectively. Alternatives to improving intensive care in Argentina include optimizing the response of emergency and critical care delivery systems, categorizing hospitals and

    This compilation on sustainability issues in civil engineering comprises contributions from international experts who have been working in the area of sustainability in civil engineering. Many of the contributions have been presented as keynote lectures at the International Conference on Sustainable Civil Infrastructure (ICSCI) held in Hyderabad, India. The book has been divided into core themes of Sustainable Transportation Systems, Sustainable Geosystems, Sustainable Environmental and Water Resources and Sustainable Structural Systems. Use of sustainability principles in engineering has become an important component of the process of design and in this context, design and analysis approaches in civil engineering are being reexamined to incorporate the principles of sustainable designs and construction in practice. Developing economies are on the threshold of rapid infrastructure growth and there is a need to compile the developments in various branches of civil engineering and highlight the issues.

    Full Text Available This article discusses the conceptual heterogeneity in the field of ‘civil society’ in the light of a distinction between positions that reflect civil society as a democratic-emancipatory category and positions that consider civil society from the perspective of the state: as an instrumental resource for the technocratic planning of the competitive nation state.The article discusses the implications and perspectives in these two different strategic scenarios for conceptualizing civil society. The argument is made that civil society in relation to democratic citizenship should basically rather be understood as a concept for specific, communicative principles for institutionalizing societal relations and organizing public experience than as an overall concept for third sector organizations.

Para analisar o problema, o olhar estará centrado na figura de San Martín – considerado o pai da Pátria Argentina –, disputada ao longo de todos os períodos históricos e por atores de diferentes tendências ideológicas, particularmente, por uma instituição que ocupou um lugar privilegiado na gestão de memória do máximo herói argentino: o Instituto Sanmartiniano. Aqui será analisado, comparativamente, o lugar ocupado por esta instituição durante dois períodos: o da ditadura militar argentina (1976-1983 e o da chamada “transição à democracia”. Especificamente, serão consideradas as resignificações das imagens do prócer em função dos projetos políticos vigentes: o do “Processo da Reorganização Nacional”, no primeiro caso, e o da recuperação da democracia, no segundo.

La transición en Uruguay se diferencia considerablemente siendo mucho más lenta, pero logrando a largo plazo una consolidación mayor del sistema político democrático.2.—Argentina pese a todos sus vaivenes políticos a lo largo de su historia, logró reconstituir el sistema de partidos bipartidista (radicales y peronistas con una notoria ausencia de partidos de derecha y de izquierda. Uruguay en cambio tiene importantes transformaciones del sistema de partidos, pasando de un sistema bipartidista (blancos y colorados a uno multipartidario. Es notorio el crecimiento del peso relativo de los partidos de izquierda en el sistema político.3.—Las violaciones de los DD.HH. en Argentina llevaron al juzgamiento y condena de los culpables, siendo posteriormente amnistiados. Para el caso uruguayo se optó por una ley de amnistía general para los responsables de violaciones a los DD.HH., medida que fue plebiscitada a instancia de la sociedad civil. Se analizan las distintas repercusiones que tuvieron para la consolidación de los sistemas políticos.4.—Tanto en Uruguay como en Argentina se generalizaron procesos electorales de "voto castigo" y alta rotatividad entre los votantes de los partidos tradicionales. Pero mientras que en Argentina no se registra una pérdida relativa en el caudal electoral de los partidos tradicionales, en Uruguay la pérdida constante de votantes de los mismos en los últimos años es muy apreciable.ABSTRACT:1.—Although Argentina underwent a fast democratization process, consolidation was not achieved and waves and breaking kept appearing.

    Article 162 of this Mexican Code provides, among other things, that "Every person has the right freely, responsibly, and in an informed fashion to determine the number and spacing of his or her children." When a marriage is involved, this right is to be observed by the spouses "in agreement with each other." The civil codes of the following states contain the same provisions: 1) Baja California (Art. 159 of the Civil Code of 28 April 1972 as revised in Decree No. 167 of 31 January 1974); 2) Morelos (Art. 255 of the Civil Code of 26 September 1949 as revised in Decree No. 135 of 29 December 1981); 3) Queretaro (Art. 162 of the Civil Code of 29 December 1950 as revised in the Act of 9 January 1981); 4) San Luis Potosi (Art. 147 of the Civil Code of 24 March 1946 as revised in 13 June 1978); Sinaloa (Art. 162 of the Civil Code of 18 June 1940 as revised in Decree No. 28 of 14 October 1975); 5) Tamaulipas (Art. 146 of the Civil Code of 21 November 1960 as revised in Decree No. 20 of 30 April 1975); 6) Veracruz-Llave (Art. 98 of the Civil Code of 1 September 1932 as revised in the Act of 30 December 1975); and 7) Zacatecas (Art. 253 of the Civil Code of 9 February 1965 as revised in Decree No. 104 of 13 August 1975). The Civil Codes of Puebla and Tlaxcala provide for this right only in the context of marriage with the spouses in agreement.

    Due to the absence of alerts or volcanic impacts during 60 years (from 1932, Quizapu-Descabezado Grande -one of the major eruptions of the XX Century- until 1991 Hudson eruption) there was mild remembrance of volcanic hazards in the collective memory of the Argentina citizens. Since then and until April 2015, the social perception changed according to different factors: age, location, education, culture, vulnerability. This variability produces a maze of challenges that go beyond the scientific knowledge. Volcanic health hazards began to be understood in 2008 after the eruption of Chaiten volcano. The particle size of ashfall (international flights for several weeks. The fear of another eruption did not wait long when Calbuco volcano started activity in April 2015, it came at a time when Villarrica volcano was also in an eruptive phase, and the SERNAGEOMIN Chile, through the Observatory OVDAS of the Southern Andes, faced multiple natural disasters at the same time, 3 volcanoes in activity, lahars, pyroclastic flows and floods in the North.

Copahue volcano, is increasing unstability on seismic and geochemistry data since 2012. Caviahue resort village, distant only 8 Km. from the active vent happens to be a high vulnerable location. In 2014 GEVAS (Geology, Volcanoes, Environment and Health) Network ARGENTINA Civil Association started collaborative activities with SEGEMAR and in 2015 with the IAPG (Geoethics, Argentina), intending to promote Best Practices in volcanic and geological hazards. Geoscientists and the volcano vulnerable population are aware about the governmental commitment to assume a strategic planning for mitigation, facing a volcanic emergency.

    In a recent study (Garrett, 2011), I described theoretical arguments and empirical evidence showing how civilization evolution might be considered from a purely physical basis. One implication is that civilization exhibits the property of persistence in its growth. Here, this argument is elaborated further, and specific near-term forecasts are provided for key economic variables and anthropogenic CO2 emission rates at global scales. Absent some external shock, civilization wealth, energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions will continue to grow exponentially at an average rate of about 2.3% per year.

Seis de seus membros ocorrem no Paraguai e na Argentina: B. maculata, Clelia bicolor, C. clelia, C. plumbea, C. quimi, e C. rustica. Historicamente, existiram confusões entre as espécies de maior tamanho (B. maculata, C. clelia, C. plumbea e C. rustica e entre as espécies pequenas (C. bicolor e C. quimi. Todas as espécies, exceto C. rustica, possuem mudanças ontogenéticas na sua coloração. As espécies podem ser diferenciadas através do seu tamanho, cor, espinhos do hemipenis, e número de escamas loreais, supralabiais, e ventrais. A maior parte da diferenciação evolutiva em Boiruna e Clelia parecem ter ocorrido na região anterior da cabeça, pelo que mostram as diferentes proporções das escamas da região loreal. Boiruna maculata é a espécie de maior amplitude ecológica; é encontrada na maioria das formações vegetais existentes ao norte do paralelo 38 no centro da Argentina, ausente apenas na região de sedimentos deltaicos da província de Buenos Aires, Argentina, e nos amplos vales e colinas onduladas do leste do Paraguai. Clelia bicolor é mais comum nos vales dos rios Paraguai e Paraná, e com alguns registros na base dos Andes no norte da Argentina. Clelia clelia distribui-se ao longo do Rio Paraguai e do baixo Paraná, e quase todo o leste do Paraguai. Clelia plumbea aparentemente é parapátrida de C. clelia ao longo do rio Paraná no sudeste do Paraguai e na província de Misiones, Argentina. O extremo leste da distribuição de C. quimi limita-se com o extremo oeste da distribuição de C. bicolor na mesma região sem que, aparentemente, haja superposição.

    This paper analyses financial credit in order to re-examine the work of Norbert Elias, particularly his association of interdependency complexity with social discipline, and his approach to contradiction. Following a discussion of these issues, the paper examines Elias's writing on money and explores the emergence of financial credit networks in early modern England. Attention is paid to credit networks and social discipline, to credit and the state, and to the contradictory images associated with the transition to modern cash economies. From one perspective, early modern credit networks might be read as a confirmation of Elias, particularly his argument that interdependency complexity, changing power balances and self-restraint are interwoven. Yet the development of modern cash money raises questions, not just in relation to Elias's treatment of money, but also with regard to his assumptions about social discipline and his approach to ambivalence and contradiction. Drawing on the foregoing discussion, the paper argues that the relation between interdependency complexity and social discipline is contingent and variable, and that interdependency complexity may simultaneously encourage contradictory processes, such as those of civilizing and barbarity.

Um dos elementos que permitem o reconhecimento de um Estado é que este funda e fundamenta os momentos que o constituem e que o precedem. Assim, tanto a família quanto a sociedade civil-burguesa têm sua sustentação no que resulta delas, mas que, segundo Hegel, já se encontra na formação de cada uma delas, ou seja, no Estado que promove a suprassunção de uma e de outra em si. O objeto do presente artigo é examinar em especial a relação entre o Estado e a sociedade civil-burguesa principalmente no que diz respeito à caracterização dada por Hegel à mesma sociedade civil-burguesa e aos perigos envolvidos na determinação do Estado pela mesma sociedade civil-burguesa. De acordo com Hegel o maior perigo se dá com a submissão do interesse comum ao interesse como o ditame comum e regulador da coexistência no Estado

Sendo assim e tendo o novo código introduzido diversas normas de caráter geral, este trabalho pretende discutir o papel do juiz e da jurisprudência na aplicação dessas normas de maneira casuística, dando-lhes tratamentos distintos de acordo com os fatos apresentados em juízo, de forma a manter a autonomia das áreas do direito mencionadas e garantir aos agentes econômicos o grau de segurança e previsibilidade necessário às suas atuações no mercado.In regard of the enactment of the New Brazilian Civil Code, that unifies the issues treated in the old civil code from 1916 and on the majority of the chapters of the commercial code from 1850, it's important to insist that the differences between the civil and commercial law remains, according to their peculiar logics. Asitis, and as the new code brought several rules of general character, this paper intends to discuss the role of the judge and jurisprudence in the civil law system, by interpretating those rules in a casuistic manner, giving them different treatments, according to the presented facts during litigation, in a way to maintain the autonomy of the law areas mentioned above and guarantee to the economic agents the level of certainty and previsibility, needed to exercise their activities in the market.

Desse modo, acabam tornando-se dependentes do comércio local e consumindo alimentos industrializados que podem ser prejudiciais à saúde bucal e ao estado nutricional.

Estudos revelaram a prevalência de desnutrição infantil, sobrepeso e obesidade em adultos, índice de cárie elevado e doença periodontal nas comunidades indígenas que vêm passando por mudanças de hábitos culturais. Conclui-se que a transição alimentar pode levar a desordens nutricionais e ao desenvolvimento de doenças bucais, sugerindo a necessidade de uma intervenção e/ou monitoramento por meio de programas dirigidos à assistência à saúde, ao saneamento básico, ao acesso à terra e à educação.Although there are still some indigenous societies that have maintained their traditional way of life, where food consumption in terms of amount and quality is based on hunting and agriculture, most indigenous peoples have been undergoing an acculturation process secondary to the contact with urban civilizations, since they no longer have enough land to guarantee their subsistence. Thus, they become dependent on local trade and consume

    This paper describes the health system of Argentina.This system has three sectors: public, social security and private.The public sector includes the national and provincial ministries as well as the network of public hospitals and primary health care units which provide care to the poor and uninsured population. This sector is financed with taxes and payments made by social security beneficiaries that use public health care facilities. The social security sector or Obras Sociales (OS) covers all workers of the formal economy and their families. Most OS operate through contracts with private providers and are financed with payroll contributions of employers and employees. Finally, the private sector includes all those private providers offering services to individuals, OS beneficiaries and all those with private health insurance.This sector also includes private insurance agencies called Prepaid Medicine Enterprises, financed mostly through premiums paid by families and/or employers.This paper also discusses some of the recent innovations implemented in Argentina, including the program Remediar.

    Full Text Available Hacia 1920, los derechos civiles de las mujeres fueron discutidos en diversas instancias del espacio público en Argentina, Brasil y Uruguay. No obstante, la sanción de la "capacidad civil plena" fue largamente demorada. En este marco, se observa un fenómeno provocador: la aparición de vidas, obras y muertes de mujeres que tuvieron un sino común. Su estudio permite conocer el proceso de emancipación civil femenina desde una perspectiva novedosa. Una interpretación en términos jurídicos y comparativos permite poner de relieve los límites de un proceso de emancipación del que sin duda estas mujeres fueron parte aunque más no sea a título individual.In the 1920s women's civil rights were discussed at different stages of the public sphere in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. Nevertheless, the formula "full civil capacity" was long retarded. In this context, we observe a provocative phenomenon: the lives, works and deaths of three women that transited a common fate. Through the study of this phenomenon we can look at the process of women's civil emancipation from a new perspective. A juridical and comparative interpretation of it helps to underline the limits of a process of emancipation of which these women were undoubtedly part of at least as individuals.

    Full Text Available Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science, involved in the research, design, and application of intelligent computer. Traditional methods for modeling and optimizing complex structure systems require huge amounts of computing resources, and artificial-intelligence-based solutions can often provide valuable alternatives for efficiently solving problems in the civil engineering. This paper summarizes recently developed methods and theories in the developing direction for applications of artificial intelligence in civil engineering, including evolutionary computation, neural networks, fuzzy systems, expert system, reasoning, classification, and learning, as well as others like chaos theory, cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, knowledge-based engineering, and simulated annealing. The main research trends are also pointed out in the end. The paper provides an overview of the advances of artificial intelligence applied in civil engineering.

    2002-12-01

    Full Text Available Propõe-se neste artigo analisar os efeitos das políticas de ajuste estrutural e de estabilização recomendadas pelo FMI para os países da América Latina, enfocando os casos da Argentina e do Brasil. Partiu-se do pressuposto de que essas políticas aprofundaram os problemas socioeconômicos e contribuíram para aumentar a instabilidade política nesses países. Assim, buscou-se avaliar a relação entre as políticas de austeridade e a governabilidade na Argentina e no Brasil, tomando como base a análise das três variáveis clássicas de desempenho econômico: crescimento, desemprego e inflação. Em níveis distintos, a crise está submetendo as instituições argentinas e brasileiras a um processo de enfraquecimento acelerado e levando ao descrédito os seus dirigentes políticos. Esse fenômeno está provocando efeitos negativos na eficácia e na legitimidade dos sistemas políticos da Argentina e do Brasil. Buscou-se evidenciar que a governabilidade se encontra fortemente ameaçada na Argentina e moderadamente no Brasil. Ao final, concluímos que o desfecho drástico da crise argentina e o aumento da vulnerabilidade da economia brasileira representam a confirmação do fracasso das políticas de corte neoliberal na América Latina, que não se mostraram capazes de gerar um modelo consistente de desenvolvimento sustentável nos países da região.

    Full Text Available This article examines health conditions in the rural areas of Central Argentina, the country’s main region for soy-bean production and export. Health conditions are analyzed through the concepts of emerging and re-emerging diseases in a context of increasing poverty. Data on poverty and health was obtained from both primary sources (trade union, government officials, rural doctors and the South Watch/FA/FODEPAL/UNR working group and secondary sources (IPEC/INDEC, IDESA, Consultora Equis, the Argentine Ministry of Employment, ILO, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of the Environment, toxicology centers and rural doctors. Analysis of rural health conditions gives cause for concern. There is evidence of deterioration in the social determinants of health such as an increase in rural and urban poverty associated with informal employment and child labor. At the same time lack of government epidemiological and toxicological data appears to hide or distort the reality of health conditions.

Considerando esto, el presente articulo tiene como objetivo presentar al patrimonio industrial como recurso para organizar rutas turísticas que permitan en algunos casos recuperar espacios industriales abandonados o usar establecimientos industriales en funcionamiento pero que pueden incorporarse a este tipo de desarrollo turístico. La creación de rutas turísticas puede permitir la reactivación de las economías locales, por constituirse en definitiva en una nueva actividad económica. Para lograr esto es necesario articular el sector público y el privado. De esta forma es posible, a través de la creación de rutas turísticas del patrimonio industrial, generar un desarrollo turístico local sustentable.

    The manifestations of climate change can result in humanitarian impacts that reverse progress in poverty- reduction, create shortages of food and resources, lead to migration, and ultimately result in civil violence and conflict. Within the continent of Africa, we have found that environmentally-related variables are either the cause or the confounding factor for over 80% of the civil violence events during the last 10 years. Using predictive climate models and land-use data, we are able to identify populations in Africa that are likely to experience the most severe climate-related shocks. Through geospatial analysis, we are able to overlay these areas of high risk with assessments of both the local population's resiliency and the region's capacity to respond to climate shocks should they occur. The net result of the analysis is the identification of locations that are becoming particularly vulnerable to future civil violence events (vulnerability hotspots) as a result of the manifestations of climate change. For each population group, over 600 social, economic, political, and environmental indicators are integrated statistically to measures the vulnerability of African populations to environmental change. The indicator time-series are filtered for data availability and redundancy, broadly ordered into four categories (social, political, economic and environmental), standardized and normalized. Within each category, the dominant modes of variability are isolated by principal component analysis and the loadings of each component for each variable are used to devise composite index scores. Comparisons of past vulnerability with known environmentally-related conflicts demonstrates the role that such vulnerability hotspot maps can play in evaluating both the potential for, and the significance of, environmentally-related civil violence events. Furthermore, the analysis reveals the major variables that are responsible for the population's vulnerability and therefore

  4. FROM “CIVILIZING FORCE” TO “SOURCE OF BACKWARD-NESS”: REPRESENTATIONS OF SPANISH COLONIALISM IN LAT-IN AMERICA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matthias vom Hau

    2015-09-01

    colonialism as a “civilizing force” that propelled the nation forward prevailed in state-sponsored historical narratives. This changed during the mid-20th century. From then onwards, official national discourses portrayed Spanish colonialism as a “source of backwardness” and thus crucial to understand contemporary political and socioeconomic development. Based on an analysis of schoolteachers’ worldviews and their use of textbooks the paper further demonstrates that the extent of this commemorative shift varied across cases. The paper situates these collective memory patterns within broader transformations of nationalism. Specifically, the explanatory argument links changing representations of Spanish colonialism to shifts in the balance of power between states elites and organized social forces, and patterns of state infrastructural development.Keywords: Latin America, nationalism, State building, collective memory, colonialism, na-tional identity, Mexico, Peru, Argentina.

  6. Psychiatry and humanism in Argentina.

    2016-04-01

    The authors of the present selection of Latin American Psychiatry texts were characterized by a common deep humanistic attitude. These prolific writers were able to establish or extend the scope of the discipline in which they chose to act, questioning the establishment of rigid boundaries within the framework of a rigorous epistemological reflection. Thus the systematizing spirit of Jose Ingenieros' in the context of positivist evolutionism, resulted in the act of founding a discipline that integrated the biological and the social. In the case of Guillermo Vidal his conception of mental health went beyond the biomedical to consider psychotherapies as an emotional commitment, continence and empathic understanding; with regard to César Cabral his formation and extensive clinical practice resulted in a work defined by the inquiring into the theoretical concepts underlying Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology. This brief selection does not exhaust the issues or the level of ideas and discussions of Psychiatry in Argentina, but constitutes a textual corpus representative of a disciplinary conception understood as scientific and humanistic endeavor.

  10. Argentina to fully privatize state owned YPF

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1992-10-05

    Argentina's Congress has voted to fully privatize state petroleum company Yacimientos Petroliferos Fiscales (YPF), a move the government expects to net at least $8 billion. Despite some political opposition, the vote was 119-10 in favor, with one abstention and opposition party members refusing to participate in the vote. Argentina's President Carlos Menem had threatened to authorize YPF privatization by decree if there was no quorum for a vote. YPF is responsible for 40% of Argentina's oil production. The country h as been self-sufficient in crude since 1982. Current production is 563,472 b/d, and proved reserves of oil and gas are valued at $7 billion.

    Full Text Available Objective: The risks in unmanned civil aviation are considered as one of the most important. In the article is proved applicability of ensuring the flight safety of aircraft and considered the basic risks of manned civil aviation. Methods: Analyzed statistical data on aviation accidents, organized probabilities distribution of aviation accidents for manned and unmanned civil aviation to identify factors that influence the occurrence of emergency situations in manned and unmanned aviation. Results: We proposed typology of risk components in civil aviation and systematized methods and techniques to reduce risks. Over the analogies defined possible risks, their causes and remedies in civil unmanned aircraft. Weight coefficients distribution was justified between risk types for development of recommendations on risk management in unmanned civil aviation. Discussion: We found that the most probable risk in manned civil aviation is the human factor, organization of air traffic control, design flaws of unmanned aviation system as a whole, as well as maintenance of unmanned aviation system.

    The author examines how Bioethics should be approached in a pluralist society. She argues that through the gradual discovery of shared ethical values and principles for judging which practices are humanizing and which or not, ever-more dense civil Bioethics helps bring out--in contrast to relativism and subjectivism--an ethical intersubjectiveness, the fundaments of which should be addressed by moral philosophy if it hopes to fulfill one of its main tasks.

  13. The Celestial Basis of Civilization

    Science.gov (United States)

    Masse, W. B.

    Scholars have long puzzled over the reasons for the ubiquity of celestial images in the residue of the world's earliest civilizations: in art, myth, religious cosmology, iconography, cosmogony, eschatological beliefs, and as portents for the conduct of royal and chiefly power. The general consensus is that these images represented a need by early societies to use the fixed celestial heavens in order to regulate ritual and agricultural cycles, and to satisfy a psychological need by people to relate themselves to their surrounding Universe. Such explanations are facile and miss an important aspect of the celestial heavens. The fixed celestial heavens served as the back-drop for a large number of often spectacular temporary naked-eye visible celestial events which animated the night and sometimes the daytime sky, and which created an 'otherworld' for virtually all cultural groups. In this paper I present a model derived from the detailed analysis of Hawaiian oral traditions and culture history in relation to historic astronomical records of temporary celestial events, and then apply this model to cultural traditions from Mesoamerica and other geographic regions in order to demonstrate that novae, supernovae, variable stars, comets, great meteor showers, aurorae, solar and lunar eclipses, and impacting Solar System debris, together played a critical role in the artistic, intellectual, and political development of early civilizations. These data not only provide important insights into the development of civilization, but also provide important details and longitudinal records of astronomical events and phenomena which are otherwise not readily available for scientific scrutiny.

    Argentina and Uruguay are among the countries in which a large proportion of young women smoke. The rate of smokers during pregnancy in both countries is not well known, and data on the characteristics of women who quit smoking during pregnancy compared to those who continue smoking are not available. We conducted a survey including 1512 pregnant women > or = 18 years old (796 in Argentina; 716 in Uruguay), during antenatal visits in public hospitals of large urban regions; 44% of the women in Argentina and 53% in Uruguay had been or were regular smokers. 11% of the surveyed women in Argentina and 18% in Uruguay continued smoking during pregnancy. In both countries, the proportion of women who lived with smokers, allowed smoking at home, and were regularly or always exposed to tobacco smoke indoors, were 49%, 46% and 20% in the subgroup of women who never smoked, 67%, 60% and 32% in those who quit, and 78%, 75% and 52% in those who continued smoking, respectively. The study confirms a serious public health problem in both countries, and documents that environmental exposure persists in subgroups of women, even in those who quit smoking. It is important that the public health sector should provide access to effective programs for smoking cessation, to women who smoke during pregnancy. For the development of a new program, any intervention intending to have at least a moderate and sustainable success, it should seriously consider including components targeting the smoking environment of the pregnant women who smoke.

Embora cada experiência nacional apresente as suas peculiaridades, argumenta-se que a economia brasileira vem revivendo a experiência mexicana e argentina em alguns pontos importantes, combinando sucesso no combate à inflação com acentuada e persistente apreciação cambial, elevados déficits no balanço de pagamentos em conta corrente e dependência de fluxos voláteis de capital internacional.This paper discusses the first two years of Brazil's current stabilization programme - known as the Real Plan - and in particular its effects on the country's external economic relations, in the ligth of similar stabilization programmes adopted in Mexico from 1988 to 1994 and in Argentina since 1991. Although each national experience has its peculiarities, it is shown that the Brazilian economy has been reliving the Mexican and Argentinian experience in some important respects, combining success in terms of inflation reduction, with strong and persistent exchange rate appreciation, high deficits in the balance of payments on current account and dependence on volatile international capital flows.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo me propongo explorar el funcionamiento de los Consejos de Guerra o tribunales militares que actuaron en los límites del aparato represivo legal de la última dictadura militar argentina. Estos tribunales fueron concebidos hacia fines del siglo XIX como fueros diferenciados destinados a mantener la disciplina de las Fuerzas Armadas. Sin embargo, desde comienzos de la década del sesenta, más tarde en los primeros años setenta y especialmente desde el golpe de Estado militar de marzo de 1976 se convirtieron en cuerpos extrajudiciales concentrados en acusar y juzgar a civiles por medio de la figura del delito político. La historiografía argentina aún no ha reconocido el papel significativo que desempeñaron los Consejos de Guerra al contribuir con el proceso de judicialización de la represión política, con la redefinición de una legalidad autoritaria y con una nueva racionalidad política. Abstract In this paper I will explore the mechanisms by which the councils of war or military courts that were involved in the last military dictatorship in Argentina, acted on the border between legality and illegality within the framework of the legal repressive apparatus of that time. These courts were conceived in the late nineteenth century as distinct jurisdictions intended to maintain discipline in the armed forces. However, since the early sixties, later in the early seventies and especially since the March 1976 coup, they became extrajudicial bodies that judged and prosecute civilians for political crimes. Argentina’s historiography has not yet fully recognized the significant role played by these councils of war as contributors to the process of judicialization of political repression, the redefinition of authoritarian legality and a new political rationality.

    Communications between civilizations within our galaxy at the present level of radio engineering is possible, although civilizations must begin to search for each other to achieve this. If an extra-terrestrial civilization possessing a technology at our level wishes to make itself known and will transmit special radio signals to do this, then it can be picked up by us at a distance of several hundreds of light years using already existing radio telescopes and specially built radio receivers. If it wishes, this civilization can also send us information without awaiting our answer.

    Full Text Available El estudio de los derechos de propiedad, sólo muy recientemente ha comenzado a interesar a los historiadores económicos de Argentina. En este ensayo, centrándonos en los aspectos normativos, nos proponemos por tanto analizar los cambios y continuidades producidos en las concepciones jurídicas sobre los derechos de propiedad, la familia y la herencia en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX. En particular, se analizarán los debates y discursos de políticos, jurisconsulto y propietarios, y su plasmación en dos obras centrales: el Código Rural de la Provincia de Buenos Aires de 1865 y el Código Civil de 1869 (promulgado en 1871, que postularon con diferentes matices la propiedad privada como absoluta, individual e inalienable. El balance sobre la continuidad/ ruptura de las concepciones y los discursos instituidos desde el campo del derecho, también permitirá analizar su impacto y proyección sobre la confi guración de la sociedad argentina del siglo XX.

  2. Detection of long term persistence in time series of the Neuquen River (Argentina)

    Seoane, Rafael; Paz González, Antonio

    2014-05-01

    In the Patagonian region (Argentina), previous hydrometeorological studies that have been developed using general circulation models show variations in annual mean flows. Future climate scenarios obtained from high-resolution models indicate decreases in total annual precipitation, and these scenarios are more important in the Neuquén river basin (23000 km2). The aim of this study was the estimation of long term persistence in the Neuquén River basin (Argentina). The detection of variations in the long range dependence term and long memory of time series was evaluated with the Hurst exponent. We applied rescaled adjusted range analysis (R/S) to time series of River discharges measured from 1903 to 2011 and this time series was divided into two subperiods: the first was from 1903 to 1970 and the second from 1970 to 2011. Results show a small increase in persistence for the second period. Our results are consistent with those obtained by Koch and Markovic (2007), who observed and estimated an increase of the H exponent for the period 1960-2000 in the Elbe River (Germany).

  3. Class actions in Argentina: standing to sue and adequacy of representation

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper describes how Argentine policy makers have thought about and enacted rules on collective litigation in the field of consumer and environmental protection. It presents an overview of the scope and content of those rules, with special focus on standing to sue and adequacy of representation. It also explains how the Supreme Court of Justice of Argentina has reacted when facing collective conflicts even in absence of adequate procedural rules to deal with collective conflicts. The case law of this high Court has provided relevant guidance to lower courts as well as to litigants regarding case management and constitutional requisites of collective litigation mechanisms. It has also summoned Congress due to the lack of a comprehensive and adequate procedural regulation in this field of law. In doing that, it has shaped a system quite similar to that enacted in the US Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23. Almost 20 years after the constitutional amendment which has given constitutional status to collective standing to sue, it may be said that this kind of representative proceedings is just going through a developing and experimental phase in Argentina. Thanks to the role of the Supreme Court in the last 10 years, however, there are good reasons to have great expectations about what is coming up in the near future.

Considering the importance ofenvironment in which we live, the liability for environmental damages is treated by the Constitution as aprinciple and a fundamental obligation. Many human activities cause environmental damages and, in linewith the principle of sustainable development, they should be avoided. However, when this is notpossible, they must be regulated (by criminal or administrative law in order to limit their adverse effectsand, according to the polluter pays principle, to internalize in advance their externalities (through taxes,insurances or other forms of financial security products.

    2005-01-01

    The 1950 lunch-table remark by Enrico Fermi `Where is everybody' has started intensive scientific and philosophical discussions about what we call nowadays the `Fermi paradox': If there had been ever a single advanced civilization in the cosmological history of our galaxy, dedicated to expansion, it would have had plenty of time to colonize the entire galaxy via exponential growth. No evidence of present or past alien visits to earth are known to us, leading to the standard conclusion that no advanced expanding civilization has ever existed in the milky-way \\cite{Webb}. This conclusion rest fundamentally on the ad-hoc assumption, that any alien civilizations dedicated to expansion at one time would remain dedicated to expansions forever. Considering our limited knowledge about alien civilizations we need however to relax this basic assumption. Here we show that a substantial and stable population of expanding advanced civilization might consequently exist in our galaxy.

  14. Cyber threats within civil aviation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Heitner, Kerri A.

    Existing security policies in civil aviation do not adequately protect against evolving cyber threats. Cybersecurity has been recognized as a top priority among some aviation industry leaders. Heightened concerns regarding cyber threats and vulnerabilities surround components utilized in compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen) implementation. Automated Dependent Surveillance-B (ADS-B) and Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) have both been exploited through the research of experienced computer security professionals. Civil aviation is essential to international infrastructure and if its critical assets were compromised, it could pose a great risk to public safety and financial infrastructure. The purpose of this research was to raise awareness of aircraft system vulnerabilities in order to provoke change among current national and international cybersecurity policies, procedures and standards. Although the education of cyber threats is increasing in the aviation industry, there is not enough urgency when creating cybersecurity policies. This project intended to answer the following questions: What are the cyber threats to ADS-B of an aircraft in-flight? What are the cyber threats to EFB? What is the aviation industry's response to the issue of cybersecurity and in-flight safety? ADS-B remains unencrypted while the FAA's mandate to implement this system is rapidly approaching. The cyber threat of both portable and non-portable EFB's have received increased publicity, however, airlines are not responding quick enough (if at all) to create policies for the use of these devices. Collectively, the aviation industry is not being proactive enough to protect its aircraft or airport network systems. That is not to say there are not leaders in cybersecurity advancement. These proactive organizations must set the standard for the future to better protect society and it's most reliable form of transportation.

    In Argentina, vaccines for immuno-preventable diseases are regulated by the national regulatory agency, the Administración Nacional de Medicamentos, Alimentos y Tecnología Médica (the National Administration of Drugs, Food and Medical Devices, or ANMAT) created in 1992 to ensure efficacy and safety of drugs, food and medical devices available in the country, according to Law 16,463 and Decree 150/92. ANMAT has licensed 84 out of 157 vaccines registered in Argentina. Since 1994, ANMAT evaluated, approved and inspected 20 clinical trials with vaccines (1.8% of the 1062 trials approved by the agency since that time). The National System of Pharmaco-vigilance has received 318 communications of eventual adverse post-vaccination events (0.3% of the total). In addition, ANMAT provides support to the National Immunisation Programme. The current procedure is to follow international guidelines in the field, to be prepared for new, rapidly changing scenarios.

    OpenAIRE

    Adriana Amado; Natalia Pizzolo

    2014-01-01

    This article summarizes the background of empirical journalism studies in Argentina.  In recent publications, researchers have consistently underscored the lack of data on the profession and the scarce development of theoretical frameworks related to journalism studies.  The local investigations have prioritized approaches and methods that do not give the whole picture of the population of journalists. Most of the research tends to equate media analysis and media messages with journalism stud...

  20. SMEs in Argentina: Who are the Exporters?

    OpenAIRE

    Ottaviano, Gianmarco I.P.; Martincus, Christian Volpe

    2009-01-01

    There exists a growing body of literature which looks at export decisions made by firms. Most studies focus on developed countries and do not explore whether different behavioral patterns prevail over the firm size distribution. This paper aims at filling this gap in the literature by analyzing the export behavior of a statistically representative sample of 192 Small and Medium-Size Enterprises (SMEs) in a developing country, Argentina, over the period 1996-1998. We find that the level of emp...

    Inside a panorama of a spectacular grain production in the last 10 years in Argentina, sunflower crop participates with an annual production of more than 3,500,000 t. During that period, many advances were made in the improvement of diseases resistance: Verticillium wilt, downy mildew and head rot. Also oil yield per hectare continued to increase. The new hybrids have new qualities, for example imidazolinones resistance, which allows farmers to keep yields, although the soils destined to sunf...

    Countries that export biofuel feedstocks such as grain or sugar and that are also importers of motor fuels will have a natural competitive advantage over other countries in the production of biofuels. Argentina is one of a very few countries that both export potential feedstocks and import gasoline and diesel. This combination means that an Argentine ethanol plant will pay less for feedstock and receive a higher price for ethanol than an ethanol plant located in a country that imports feedsto...

  6. Argentina: Nuclear power development and Atucha 2

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Nogarin, Mauro

    2015-08-15

    In 2014, nuclear energy generated about 5,257 GWh of electricity or a total share of 4.05 % of the total electrical energy of about 129,747.63 GWh kWh produced in Argentina and there has been a trend for this production to increase. Argentina currently has a nuclear production capacity of 1,010 megawatts of electrical energy. However, when the Atucha 2 nuclear power plant is completed and starts commercial operation, it will add 745 megawatts to this electrical production capacity. There are two sites with nuclear power plants in Argentina: Atucha and Embalse. The Embalse nuclear power plant went into operation in 1984. At the Atucha site, the Atucha-1 nuclear power plant started operation in 1974. It was the first nuclear power plant in Latin America. Construction of Atucha-2 started in 1981 but advanced slowly due to funding and was suspended in 1994 when the plant was 81 % built. In 2003, new plans were approved to complete the Atucha 2. I summer 2014 the plant went critical for the first time. The construction was completed under a contract with AECL.

    Full Text Available El consenso sobre los beneficios netos de la presencia de bancos extranjeros en los países emergentes parece en alguna medida debilitarse a raíz de la experiencia de los años noventa, que constituye una fase de fuerte expansión y fortalecimiento de dicha presencia. Distinguiendo entre la presencia y la dominancia en el mercado local por parte de los bancos extranjeros, el presente trabajo analiza la experiencia argentina en el período 1993-2000. Para este fin, se reconstruyo por primera vez la serie completa de los balances bancarios. Los resultados sugieren que la aumentada presencia de bancos extranjeros no ha producido beneficios significativos, mientras que todo el sistema bancario se ha aventajado por el clima de mayor crecimiento y de estabilidad monetaria. Como parte de la estrategia perseguida por parte del poder público, la creciente dominancia de los bancos extranjeros resulta uno de los factores que han empobrecido la biodiversidad de la banca argentina. De todos modos, parte de los problemas que atormentaron a la economía argentina en los años noventa podrían ser considerados más como el resultado de la adopción de una abertura financiera completa que como consecuencia de la dominancia creciente por parte de los bancos extranjeros.

    Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, is surrounded by 24 neighboring districts forming the so-called Buenos Aires metropolitan area (AMBA) that holds a population of 14 million people. In this work, the atmospheric aerosol of this metropolitan area was characterized through the determination of mass concentration, black carbon and elemental concentrations, on PM10 and PM2.5 samples taken using a 'Gent' sampler. The sampling site was located at an urban area characterized by fast and heavy traffic and samples were collected each third day, along 24 hours, between October 2005 and February 2006. A number of elements (As, Ba, Br, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Eu, Fe, Hf, La, Na, Rb, Sb, Sc, Se, Sm, Th, Yb and Zn) were determined by Neutron Activation Analysis and their results, as well as those of gravimetric mass concentrations, were compared with historical data. Enrichment factors were calculated for both fractions, using Sc as reference element and Mason's crustal concentration values, showing enrichment for As, Br, Sb, Se and Zn. Although the number of analyzed filters is still small, a preliminary factor analysis was run on both fraction results and different source profiles were found. The attribution of the sources to soil, high temperature processes including refuse incineration, fuel combustion and others, metal processes, traffic and other anthropogenic ones is discussed.

  12. Politicization of Senior Civil Servants in Slovenia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lea NAHTIGAL

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available In the context of the civil service system reform, the new normative framework adopted in 2002 introduced a new management arrangement in public administration, whose consequence was the transition of senior positions within ministries, bodies within ministries, and government offices from political officials to positional civil servants with a limited term of office, who have thus become the most senior civil servants, called administrative managers. Based on extensive empirical research and statistical data, this article provides an in-depth analysis of the status and position of administrative managers, which is intended to serve as a test whether the apex of the Slovenian administrative system is politicized and in what form. In the so-called new democracies, politicization most often is manifested as a violation of the principles of political neutrality characteristic of a professional civil service, through personalized and biased appointments of senior civil servants and in the low degree of protection against lay-offs of civil servants on political grounds. Administrative managers thus often have to decide between political susceptibility and trustworthiness versus professionalism and professional accountability, for their tasks belong to the administrative and political realms. This poses a question about the degree of influence politicians exert on administrative managers and the rate of success with which administrative managers manage to retain their professionalism and independence, which should represent the key characteristics of a senior civil servant.

  13. Competencies Framework for Civil Engineer in Thailand

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available The civil engineering industry now faces with many problems such as poorly planned projects, breach of the delivery date, erroneous budget estimation, uncontrolled system functionality changes, and inappropriate documentation that all lead to the dissatisfaction of clients. One of the main concerns of civil engineering industry is to develop the talent of its human resources, since the quality and innovation of its products and services depend to a great extent on the knowledge, the ability and the talent that civil engineers apply in the development process. A competency framework defines a set of knowledge, skills, and behaviors that professionals must have to excel in their careers. A competency framework facilitates the identification of training needs and guides the design of a professional development program. In this paper we propose a competency framework for civil engineers, whose design is based on the activities and interactions that they perform during the civil development process. Thus, competency framework for civil engineers defines a set of knowledge, abilities and key behaviors, with special emphasis in the soft skills. The organization that adopts this framework must define and integrate the specific competencies needed by for civil engineers to allow them to fulfill their goals.

    2005-12-01

    Dr. James P. Kennett has been a leader in the area of rapid climate change. Jim and his son Douglas J. Kennett, a scientific archeologist, were among the first to make a serious effort to combine high-quality climate data with archeological information to study the impact of climate on societies. They argued about the 'strong relationship between climatically induced changes in environmental conditions and social, political, and economic responses' in coastal California during the past 2 millennia. One tropical climate archive with an appropriate memory for the most relevant sub-centennial to sub-decadal scale climate swings is the anoxic Cariaco Basin off northern Venezuela. Millimeter to micrometer-scale geochemical data in the laminated sediments of the Cariaco Basin have been interpreted to reflect variations in the hydrological cycle and the mean annual position of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) over tropical South America during the past millennia. These data with decadal to (sub)annual resolution show that the Terminal Collapse of the Classic Maya civilization occurred during an extended dry period. In detail, the Cariaco record reveals evidence for three separate droughts during the period of Maya downfall, each lasting a decade or less. These data suggest that climate change was potentially one immediate cause of the demise of Mayan civilization, with a century-scale decline in rainfall putting a general strain on resources and several multi-year events of more intense drought pushing Mayan society over the edge. Here, we present a new data set of comparable quality and resolution from Southern China. In the sediments of lake Huguang Maar in coastal southeast China, the titanium content and redox-sensitive magnetic properties record the strength of winter monsoon winds at subdecadal resolution over the last 16 thousand years. The record indicates a stronger winter monsoon prior to the Boelling-Alleroed warming, during the Younger Dryas, and

  16. THE POETIC VECTOR OF CIVILIZATION

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mikhail Epstein

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The article regards poetry as the type of a world view that has profound effect on the social and technical development of civilization. Contrary to popular belief about the decline of poetry in the technological age, poetry, as the desire for imaginative comprehension and transformation of the world, remains the most powerful engine of civilization. There are new, non-linguistic forms of existence of poetry (outside of verses and books that are explored in the article: anthropoeia, biopoeia, kosmopoeia, noopoeia, sociopoeia, technopoeia… For example, the technique is no less metaphorical and symbolic than poetry is, but it embodies the energy of creation not in words, but in the poetically transfigured matter where each element is „playing” with nature, overcomes the force of gravity, the distances of time and space. Tehnopoeia as realized in aviation, rocketry, electronics, Internet, new means of communication, allows to see clearly the invisible, to hear the inaudible, to speak many languages. Technopoeia is the poetic aspect of technology as an activity that implements the creative aspirations of humans and the symbolic vision of the world. The article examines the „physics of poetry,” as it was understood by Surrealists, and shows that the poetic perception of things is not opposed to its utilitarian functions, but both can be harmoniously combined. Contemporatry science and technology aspire to implement a number of fundamental biopoetic and cosmopoetic metaphors: the universe — a computer, a planet — a living organism, the computer — the brain, the Internet — the nervous system, infectious viruses — computer and genes, the language of life — the process of writing… The metaphor becomes an integral part of the scientific outlook and the driving force behind the new discovery. Philology and poetics need to develop new methods of analysis of poetic phenomena as embodied not in verses, but in scientific thinking and

    2011-12-01

    The number of maternal and child deaths associated with delivery in Germany has reached a historically low level. Even so, the number of claims for damages arising from birth complications is continuously increasing. The reasons for this apparent paradox are analysed in the present contribution. Basic principles of the present situation concerning legal precedents with regard to birth damages are illustrated. The legal instrumentarium which the courts use to reach their decisions is presented. The interactions of the reasons for liability are demonstrated for the five most frequently occurring critical obstetric situations (intrauterine asphyxia, premature amniorrhexis, danger of premature birth, intrauterine growth retardation, birth of a depressed child).From an analysis of court decisions on liability questions that result from an objective failure of obstetric management in critical situations, four general empirical rules can be derived and observation of these rules could markedly reduce the number of patient claims. The function of civil court rulings as a necessary control instance is positively accepted.

    José Matias Pereira

    2002-12-01

    Full Text Available Propõe-se neste artigo analisar os efeitos das políticas de ajuste estrutural e de estabilização recomendadas pelo FMI para os países da América Latina, enfocando os casos da Argentina e do Brasil. Partiu-se do pressuposto de que essas políticas aprofundaram os problemas socioeconômicos e contribuíram para aumentar a instabilidade política nesses países. Assim, buscou-se avaliar a relação entre as políticas de austeridade e a governabilidade na Argentina e no Brasil, tomando como base a análise das três variáveis clássicas de desempenho econômico: crescimento, desemprego e inflação. Em níveis distintos, a crise está submetendo as instituições argentinas e brasileiras a um processo de enfraquecimento acelerado e levando ao descrédito os seus dirigentes políticos. Esse fenômeno está provocando efeitos negativos na eficácia e na legitimidade dos sistemas políticos da Argentina e do Brasil. Buscou-se evidenciar que a governabilidade se encontra fortemente ameaçada na Argentina e moderadamente no Brasil. Ao final, concluímos que o desfecho drástico da crise argentina e o aumento da vulnerabilidade da economia brasileira representam a confirmação do fracasso das políticas de corte neoliberal na América Latina, que não se mostraram capazes de gerar um modelo consistente de desenvolvimento sustentável nos países da região.

  19. A Universal Model of Global Civil Unrest

    CERN Document Server

    Braha, Dan

    2012-01-01

    Civil unrest is a powerful form of collective human dynamics, which has led to major transitions of societies in modern history. The study of collective human dynamics, including collective aggression, has been the focus of much discussion in the context of modeling and identification of universal patterns of behavior. In contrast, the possibility that civil unrest activities, across countries and over long time periods, are governed by universal mechanisms has not been explored. Here, we analyze records of civil unrest of 170 countries during the period 1919-2008. We demonstrate that the distributions of the number of unrest events per year are robustly reproduced by a nonlinear, spatially extended dynamical model, which reflects the spread of civil disorder between geographic regions connected through social and communication networks. The results also expose the similarity between global social instability and the dynamics of natural hazards and epidemics.

    Drawing from the work of Andrew Dobson, two notions of citizenship in civil society can be distinguished: environmental citizenship, which focuses on environmental rights and seeks to redefine the relationship between the state and the citizen; and ecological citizenship, which goes beyond a rights-based notion of citizenship to advocate the fair usage of ecological space across international borders. Using civil society initiatives to conserve forests, this article argues that these two noti...

  6. Galactic civilizations - Population dynamics and interstellar diffusion

    Newman, W. I.; Sagan, C.

    1981-01-01

    A model is developed of the interstellar diffusion of galactic civilizations which takes into account the population dynamics of such civilizations. The problem is formulated in terms of potential theory, with a family of nonlinear partial differential and difference equations specifying population growth and diffusion for an organism with advantageous genes that undergoes random dispersal while increasing in population locally, and a population at zero population growth. In the case of nonlinear diffusion with growth and saturation, it is found that the colonization wavefront from the nearest independently arisen galactic civilization can have reached the earth only if its lifetime exceeds 2.6 million years, or 20 million years if discretization can be neglected. For zero population growth, the corresponding lifetime is 13 billion years. It is concluded that the earth is uncolonized not because interstellar spacefaring civilizations are rare, but because there are too many worlds to be colonized in the plausible colonization lifetime of nearby civilizations, and that there exist no very old galactic civilizations with a consistent policy of the conquest of inhabited worlds.

  7. Judicial civil procedure dragging out in Kosovo

    Rrustem Qehaja

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available This article tends to deal with one of the most worrying issues in the judicial system of Kosovo the problem of judicial civil procedure dragging out. The article analyses the reasons of these dragging outs of the judicial civil procedure focusing on the context of one of the basic procedural principles in civil procedure-the principle of economy or efficiency in the courts. Dragging out of civil procedure in Kosovo has put in question not only the basic principles of civil procedure, but it also challenges the general principles related to human rights and freedoms sanctioned not only by the highest legal act of the country, but also with international treaties. The article tends to give a reflection to the most important reasons that effect and influence in these dragging outs of civil procedure, as well as, at the same time aims to give the necessary alternatives to pass through them by identifying dilemmas within the judicial practice. As a result, the motives of this scientific paper are exactly focused at the same time on identifying the dilemmas, as well as presenting ideas, to overstep them, including the judicial practice of the European Court of Human Rights on Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, by which it is given the possibility to offering people efficient and within a reasonable time legal protection of their rights before national courts. For these reasons, the paper elaborates this issue based on both, the legal theory and judicial practice.

    2013-01-01

    Background/aim Argentina has one of the highest cigarette smoking rates among both men and women in the Americas and no legislated restrictions on tobacco industry advertising. The tobacco industry has traditionally expanded markets by targeting adolescents and young adults. The objective of this study was to determine whether and how the tobacco industry promotes cigarettes to adolescents in Argentina. Methods We conducted a systematic search of tobacco industry documents available through the internet dated between 1995 and 2004 using standard search terms to identify marketing strategies in Argentina. A selected review of the four leading newspapers and nine magazines with reported high readership among adolescents was completed. The selected print media were searched for tobacco images and these were classified as advertisements if associated with a commercial product or as a story if not. Results The tobacco industry used market segmentation as a strategy to target Argentinean consumers. British American Tobacco (BAT) undertook a young adult psychographic study and classified them as “progressives”, “Jurassics” or “conservatives” and “crudos” or “spoiled brats”. BAT marketed Lucky Strike to the “progressives” using Hollywood movies as a vehicle. The tobacco industry also targeted their national brands to the conservatives and linked these brands with “nationalistic values” in advertising campaigns. Philip Morris promoted Marlboro by sponsoring activities directed at young people and they launched the 10 cigarettes packet as a starter vehicle. Conclusions The tobacco industry used psychographic segmentation of the population and developed advertising strategies focused on youth. Tobacco control researchers and advocates must be able to address these strategies in counter-marketing interventions. PMID:18299308

  10. Clientelism and Political Control in Rural Argentina

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Scholarship on clientelism frequently addresses political clientelism using strong ideological presuppositions and/or neglecting its subjective dimension. In this article I explore political clientelism in a rural community of the province of Formosa, Argentina from the peasants' point of view. The results suggest that peasants consider the clientelist relation as one that recognizes their personal needs, while the bureaucracy of the state does not. Thus, they perceive clientelist ties as legitimate, criticizing only the fact that the provision of resources by patrons takes place only during elections.

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available This article examines the role of religious actors in sexual politics in Argentina. Sexual politics has become a critical battlefield when it comes to the role of religion in the Argentinean liberal-democratic regime, while gender and sexuality have been the main political targets of religious institutions since the 1980s and 1990s. In this context, progressive legislation on gender, sexual, and reproductive rights was passed, including same-sex marriage and the recognition of transgender identities, despite the opposition of the Catholic Church. Paradoxically, abortion remains largely illegal, allowed only in exceptional circumstances.

    Monitoring of resistance of Aedes aegypti to temephos was implemented in the provinces of Formosa and Misiones, Argentina, as a response to the need to improve the vigilance for the dengue vector in areas of high risk of dengue. Eggs collected in each locality were reared, and susceptibility to temephos was assayed using larval bioassays. A weak decrease in susceptibility of larvae to temephos was observed in Clorinda and Puerto Iguazú, indicating an incipient resistance with a resistance ratio of 3. No control failures have been observed yet, and this program should allow the early detection of a real problem in our country.

  16. Municipal waste management and groundwater contamination processes in Córdoba Province, Argentina

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available In Coronel Moldes, Argentina, waste management practices consist in municipal waste being tipped directly onto an area of sand dunes at the municipal waste disposal site (MWDS. Moreover, untreated liquid waste from septic tanks and latrines from urban areas are discharged in the same place. This co-disposal waste management is very common in many regions of Argentina and its impact on the groundwater of Coronel Moldes has not been evaluated. The study area is located in the vicinity of a MWDS in a flatlands environment that is typical of Argentina. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the impacts on groundwater quality of current waste management practices in order to consider the requirement for new guidelines for sustainable groundwater management. Three groundwater monitoring wells were installed up-, across- and down-gradient of the MWDS. The principal aquifer is formed by sandy silt sediments (loess. Groundwater levels in the area of the MWDS are between 5.6 m and 7.8 m. The Vulnerability index indicates that groundwater in this area has a high vulnerability. Groundwater in the vicinity of the MWDS shows elevated electrical conductivity, high concentrations of Cl-, Na+, and HCO3- ions, COD, BOD5 and aerobic bacteria and less dissolved oxygen than the background values indicating the presence of organic matter. Municipal waste management represents a significant omission in current groundwater protection policy at Coronel Moldes. Strict supervision of solid and liquid municipal waste disposal needs to be instigated in order to ensure that the groundwater remains free of contamination and to allow a sustainable environmental management.

    Orellano, Pablo W; Salomón, Oscar D

    2016-01-01

    Dengue outbreaks have occurred yearly in Argentina since 1998. A number of candidate vaccines have been tested in endemic countries. The most advanced one was licensed in three countries of Latin America for children over 9 years of age. In the present article the benefits and drawbacks of these vaccines as well as the challenges for the implementation of a vaccination strategy in Argentina are discussed. Furthermore, a risk stratification strategy with new criteria and a multidisciplinary vision is suggested as a possible path for the assessment of the pertinence of a vaccination program in areas showing the highest risk of dengue transmission and/or for people at the greatest risk of developing severe dengue. It is also suggested that the definition regarding the status of endemicity should take into account the local realities. Finally, this paper proposes a broad discussion on the evidences, the expected impact and instrumental aspects that would be involved in the incorporation of a dengue vaccine, marketed or in development, into the national immunization program, and especially which subpopulation should be targeted for the immunization strategy to be cost-effective.

    Full Text Available In this paper we present reports of Yugoslav teachers who held classes to immigrants in Argentina 1939-1944, organized by the government of Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Teachers’ reports to Yugoslav Embassy in Buenos Aires testify of Kingdom of Yugoslavia efforts to oppose assimilation and promote and strengthen “Yugoslav national unity”. The reports also describe general social circumstances of Yugoslav immigrants, show various details from their everyday life and contain valuable data on numerous political, economic, social and cultural problems of this diaspora in Argentina and their relationship with motherland. We believe that archive materials presented in this paper opens numerous questions which could be topics of separate researches. Some of them could be the following: To which extent the teachers’ reports represented the actual situation and to which they were shaped to match policy and expectations of Kingdom of Yugoslavia? What was the actual influence of teachers to spreading the “national unity” among immigrants? Have their work left trace in Yugoslav diaspora and in which way? Beside all of the open issues, it is certain that teachers’ reports contain valuable data on immigrants’ everyday life, curriculum, schooling conditions, relationship with motherland, etc. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 47016: Interdisciplinarno istraživanje kulturnog i jezičkog nasleđa Srbije.

    1979-01-01

    This case study of Yacimientos Petroliferos Fiscales, the world's first state-owned oil company, traces the development of Argentina's nationalistic petroleum policy from the discovery of oil on state-owned land in 1907 to the present. The focus is on the period prior to 1930, when the institutions and ideologies that have shaped Argentine petroleum affairs became firmly established. A final chapter summarizes developments since 1930, with emphasis on the impact the Argentine experience has had on other oil-producing countries in Latin America. Prior to World War I, Argentine governments gave little attention to the development of petroleum resources, but the wartime economic crisis demonstrated to many prominent political figures the necessity of shifting from dependence on foreign capital and imported fuel toward greater economic self-sufficiency. A key aspect of this new policy was the founding in 1922 of the state oil agency, YPF, which gradually wrested control of oil resources from the provinces in order to establish a vertically integrated, national petroleum industry. Because of its power and influence, YPF survived the 1930 revolution, became the largest economic enterprise in Argentina, and emerged as the very symbol of national economic independence.

    Fusarium temperatum and Fusarium subglutinans isolated from the Northwest region (NOA region) of Argentina were characterized using a polyphasic approach based on morphological, biological and molecular markers. Some interfertility between the species was observed. The phylogenetic analysis showed that the two species represented two clades strongly supported by bootstrap values. The toxigenic profile of the strains was also determined. F. temperatum strains were fusaproliferin and beauvericin producers, and only some strains were fumonisin B1 producers. All F. subglutinans strains produced fusaproliferin but none produced beauvericin, indicating a potential toxicological risk from maize harvested in the NOA region of Argentina. This study provides new information about F. temperatum isolated from maize in Argentina.

  6. How Global is Global Civil Society?

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available In recent times the concept of global civil society has made its appearance on national and international intellectual, as well as political agendas, in a major way. It is of some interest that two other concepts, both of which call for transcendence of national boundaries in precisely the same way as global civil society does, have also made their appearance on the scene of intellectual debates at roughly the same time: the concept of cosmopolitanism and that of transnational justice. All three concepts have dramatically expanded the notion of commitment to one’s fellow beings beyond the nation state. And all three concepts have extended critiques of policies that violate the dignity of human beings from national governments to the practices of inter-national institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Forum. In sum the inter-related concepts of global civil society, cosmopolitanism, and transnational justice have greatly enlarged the traditional domain of political theory. And yet for any political theorist who is acutely conscious of the phenomenon of power, these concepts are not unproblematic. For the practices of global civil society may just reinforce the intellectual and the moral power of the West over the postcolonial world. This is particularly true of say global human rights organizations. This paper will attempt to raise some questions of the concept and the practices of global civil society from the perspective of the countries of the South.

  11. NPP atucha I. 40 years of commercial operation of the heavy-water reactor in Argentina

    2014-08-15

    The nuclear power plant (NPP) Atucha I in Argentina - a heavy-water reactor with pressure vessel technology operated with natural uranium - accomplished a remarkable anniversary on 26 June 2014: 40 years of commercial operation. State-run Nucleoelectrica Argentina SA (NA SA), being today the plant owner and operator commemorated this anniversary, as only few NPP exist which can refer to such long operating time with good performance. With a limited operating licence to 40 years (or rather 32 full load years) by the National Atomic Energy Agency (Comision National de Energia Atomica/CNEA) the plant had been handed over to CNEA on 24 June 1974 by the general contractor, Siemens AG, after release of the works contract on 1. June 1968. The site is located to the north-west of Buenos Aires upstream on the Rio Parana. The plant has an output of 345 MW; it has been continuously, reliable and successfully operated. Atucha I supplied overall 82.4 TWh of electricity into the national grid (220 kV) with an integral operating availability of 76.5 %.

  12. Nordic visions of the Civil War

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Morten HEIBERG

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available There is a rich body of Scandinavian literature written by surviving volunteers of the International Brigades which concerns the Spanish Civil War. However, when it comes to scientific studies the situation is an altogether different one. Only a small number of academic studies can be found available, often limited in scope and of modest quality. The Civil War seems to be of marginal interest to the Nordic research community, which is generally more interested in national history than in European and world history. There are, however, some exceptions to this, as this article will demonstrate. The most interesting conclusion - from an international historiographical point of view - to be drawn from a number of new studies is that the Spanish Civil War produced political and military repercussions in Scandinavia during the German occupation of Denmark and Norway from 1940-1945.

    Full Text Available Almost all accounts of global justice recognise that the world, as it is, is unjust, and that something ought to be done about this. But what? In this paper, I argue that wealthy individuals have a duty grounded in the natural duty of justice to engage in civil disobedience against the currently unjust global order with the aim of pressuring for institutional reform. In particular, I argue that those who subscribe to the two main views on global justice—cosmopolitanism and statism—can agree that the conditions which give rise to the duty to engage in civil disobedience obtain in global society today. I then explain why I focus on transnational civil disobedience, argue that only the wealthy have the duty to engage in it, and give an example of how this duty has been discharged in the real world.

    Little is understood about racial/ethnic disparities in infant health in South America. We quantified the extent to which the disparity in preterm birth (PTB; Ecuador are explained by household socio-economic, demographic, healthcare use, and geographic location indicators. The samples included 5199 infants born between 2000 and 2011 from Argentina and 1579 infants born between 2001 and 2011 from Ecuador. An Oaxaca-Blinder type decomposition model adapted to binary outcomes was estimated to explain the disparity in PTB risk across groups of variables and specific variables. Maternal use of prenatal care services significantly explained the PTB disparity, by nearly 57% and 30% in Argentina and Ecuador, respectively. Household socio-economic status explained an additional 26% of the PTB disparity in Argentina. Differences in maternal use of prenatal care may partly explain ethnic disparities in PTB in Argentina and Ecuador. Improving access to prenatal care may reduce ethnic disparities in PTB risk in these countries.

    Argentina's economic and political history may appear grim by US standards, but it is envied by many other Latin American nations, and by Latin American standards its demographic situation is enviable as well. A low population growth rate combined with abundant natural resources means that the poverty of its neighbors has not hit Argentina. Almost everyone eats well and the staple is beef -- about 240 pounds per capita per year. Final figures for the 1980 census of population and housing report a total of 27.9 million people, an increase of 17% from the 23.8 million people counted in 1970. The average annual rate of increase was 1.5% a year. With the exception of Uruguay, this is the lowest rate of increase in continental Latin America. The birthrate of 24 births/1000 population is third only to Chile and Uruguay as the lowest in continental Latin America, although the death rate is about average at 9/1000. After several decades of decline, the death rate is rising again because the population is aging. A current problem is the emigration of Argentinians to other countries, a problem that is most severe among highly trained professionals. Over 1/3 of those who leave Argentina come to the US, with Spain and Canada receiving the next highest numbers. At its current growth rate, Argentina's population will double in 46 years. It is estimated that the population was 29.1 million in 1983; it is projected to be 34.5 million by the year 2000 and 39.6 million by 2020. Over 1/3 of the population live in and around Gran Buenos Aires, the largest metropolitan area in South America and among the ten largest in the world. There is a large core of Spanish descendents still living, but some other European countries are well represented also. The 1980 census recorded 7.1 million households; the average number of persons per household was 3.9. There were 8.2 million dwellings counted in 1980, with an average of 3.3 people per dwelling. 13% of all dwellings were unoccupied at the

    En Julio de 1997 se terminó con la primera parte de la instalación del ``Coronógrafo de Espejo para la Argentina'' en la estación de altura Carlos U. Cesco (El Leoncito), gracias al esfuerzo de la gente del Max Planck Institut für Aeronomie (Alemania), del OAFA y del IAFE. Dicho coronógrafo forma parte de un programa de ciencia bilateral entre Alemania y Argentina. El propósito del mismo, en conjunción con otros telescopios solares y terrestres, es contribuir a un mejor entendimiento de cuestiones fundamentales de la física solar. Para ello, ya está observando la corona de emisión en el verde (Fe XIV), rojo (Fe X) y Hα entre 1.05 y 2 radios solares aproximadamente. El diseño del instrumento, el cual fuera ya presentado en esta misma reunión en La Plata en 1996, es esencialmente similar al del telescopio LASCO-C1 a bordo del Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). La adquisición de datos se realiza con un CCD de 1280x1024 pixels, codificando en 12 bits, pudiendo ser el mismo operado en forma remota. En esta reunión presentaremos algunas de las observaciones realizadas durante la puesta a punto del instrumento en el período julio-setiembre de 1997. Asimismo expondremos cómo y por qué sus resultados complementarán a los de su par en el espacio.

    Full Text Available Na fronteira entre Argentina, Brasil e Uruguai as narrativas orais transgridem limites políticos e, ao circularem entre as vizinhas regiões, vão revelando identidades, tradições, sentimentos. Esta transmissão de valores e práticas que se dá através da narração de histórias é parte fundamental da "cultura da fronteira", existente entre os três países enfocados. Neste artigo abordo um aspecto específico desta cultura, aquele que diz respeito às performances dos contadores de causos/cuentos e sua importância na organização e transmissão da experiência de viver na fronteira. Inicialmente faço um levantamento teórico da relação entre experiência, performance e narrativa. Na seqüência, demonstro, através de duas narrativas - um "causo" cômico e uma história pessoal - como os conceitos de "performance como espetáculo" e "performance como desempenho", depreendidos da análise dos dados empíricos, auxiliaram na compreensão das diferentes formas de engajamento de contadores e ouvintes nos eventos narrativos da região.In the frontier among Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay oral narratives transpose political limits. On circulating in this region, narratives reveal identities, traditions and even feelings. In these countries the practice of storytelling is a central aspect of a "culture of frontier", it is fundamental for transmitting values and knowledge. In this paper I present an specific aspect of this culture: the story-tellers performances and its importance on the organization and transmission of the experience of living in the frontier. Firstly, it is done a theoretical approach about the relationship among experience, performance and narrative definitions. Then, presenting two narratives - one a comic story, and the other a personal life narrative - I explain how concepts of "performance as an exhibition" and "performance as skill" can be useful to understand the different forms storytellers act in narrative events.

    The presidency of Néstor Kirchner (2003-2007 in Argentina marks a before and an after in the history of transitional justice in the world. He arrived in the Casa Rosada after the financial default of 2001. Kirchner builds its legitimacy on the basis of latinoamericanism, the criticism of the neoliberal model and the defense of human rights. After the initial rush of Raúl Alfonsín, who processed the heads of the dictatorship after the defeat of the Falklands/Malvinas war, impunity in Argentina characterized the following twenty years. Within a few weeks impunity laws were erased. This, not only opens the doors to justice for the 30,000 disappeared people of the last dictatorship (1976-1983, but marks a real change of hegemony in which human rights become state policy and a sort of a new civil religion of the Argentine state.

    Full Text Available The current paper results from a research developed in the metropolitan area of João Pessoa – PB that has the objective of investigating the socio-environmental NGOs performance in the last decades and the ways it has contributed to social legitimacy of environmental problems. Theoretically, the article was based on local literature, on a dialogue with Political Ecology and the authors debating about the resurgence of Civil Society in the last decades of 20th century. The research adopted a qualitative methodological design to explore the experience of eight local socio-environmental NGOs through nine semi-structured interviews with representative members of these organizations. The interviews focused on the history of NGOs constitution, the actions taken, the relations established with other social spheres, their organizational and financial strategies, the perception they have on local environmental problems, the difficulties faced in order to survive and what they think about local environmental culture. The results showed that the entities of this kind in the metropolitan area still are few and small and surviving, mostly, from voluntary work and contributions of their own members. However, in spite of the problems they have on a daily basis, these organizations have played a fundamental role in regional public life. They were able to do so through the defense of environmental causes, the protection of nature and the quality of life of local population, the broadening of public sphere, the educational and cultural diffusion of environmental issues and the progressive advance of political culture and democratic participation.

    Full Text Available As questões ambientais têm ocupado cada vez mais espaço nas legislações dos países, devido à grande geração de resíduos, oriundos principalmente, da indústria da construção civil. Para qualquer país, não tem como haver crescimento, sem que a indústria da construção o acompanhe. Crescimento este, que gera grandes impactos ambientais, desde a extração de recursos naturais para a produção de insumos, até a produção de resíduos, que são dispostos no meio ambiente sem nenhum controle. Este artigo expõe pesquisas que retratam a preocupação quanto à geração dos resíduos provenientes da indústria da construção não somente no Brasil, mas em todo o mundo. Pesquisadores de todo o planeta disponibilizam dados quanto à quantidade de RCD gerado, legislações empregadas com o intuito de minimizar e prevenir a geração de RCD e aplicabilidades dos resíduos reciclados nos mais diversos ramos do setor construtivo, de forma a promover o seu retorno à cadeia da construção. Dados estes, que foram apresentados neste trabalho, com o intuito de "acordar" o Brasil, para a nova ordem mundial, em que a palavra reciclar, não mais será uma opção, e sim, rotina de cada brasileiro.

    Full Text Available O concreto material de construção mais amplamente utilizado está constantemente evoluindo. Nos últimos anos, muitas pesquisas têm sido desenvolvidas e a busca por materiais com desempenho mecânico e de durabilidade cada vez maiores tem sido o alvo dos pesquisadores da tecnologia dos concretos. Tais materiais permitem que os projetistas e arquitetos o usem eficientemente em edifícios altos, além de serem esteticamente mais interessantes. Para tanto, concretos obtidos a partir da engenharia de microestrutura são necessários. Por serem compósitos constituídos de partículas com granulometria fina (tamanho máximo Concrete, the most widely used construction material, is constantly developing. During the recent years, several researches have been carried out and the search for materials with higher mechanical and durability performance has been the objective of the concrete technology area. These materials allow designers and the architects to use them efficiently in high slender and innovative buildings. Therefore, in order to attain this target, microstructural engineering is required. Being composites constituted of fine size distribution particles (maximum size < 4750 μm and low water/cement ratio, these concretes present dense matrix by packing optimization of the granular materials, whereas the suitable workability is the result of particle dispersion promoted by adding chemical admixtures to the mixture. Moreover, they incorporate mineral additives which are, mostly, industrial by-products, resulting in a great environmental benefit: industrial residues recycling, pollutant emissions reduction during cement production, raw materials preservation and energy saving. Thus, in present paper, a review related to the concepts of particle dispersion and packing was carried out, addressed for special concretes applied in the civil engineering field.

  4. CIVIL ENGINEERS' ROLES IN PUBLIC WORKS

    Science.gov (United States)

    Murata, Teruaki

    Recently, the public interests are becoming high in the way of executing public works and the future direction of infrastructure development, which raises nation-wide discussion on these issues. How should we make our country's growth strategy for sustainable development? How should we realize the grand design of infrastructure needed for the implementation of such a strategy? It is obvious that further discussions are needed for these challenging questions. With an aim to promote such discussions, this paper reviews the history of public works and the professional practices (or accomplishments) of our great civil engineers, and discusses the future of public works and the roles of civil engineers based on their origin. Further, in this paper, the author, as the chairman of the Public Works Committee of Japan Civil Engineering Contractors Association, introduces the Association's proposal of "realization of an attractive construction industry." However, for its realization, sustainable institutional arrangements under social consensus are indispensable. Also, individual engineer must establish his/her own identity based on sense of social ethics. It is the author's hope that, through these journals, the professional practices of civil engineers will be widely known to the public with objective logics and discussed to achieve social consensus.

    Full Text Available An ever increasing feature of public office is the way in which the recruitment and training of civil servants are controlled by legislation. Civil servants are a basic component of public administration but they are also important for labor law because civil service relations have the characteristics of an employment relationship and also specific features resulting from the rules of public law. The relevant expression of the interferences between public and private law for civil servants is recruitment and training. The originality of this article lies in the multidisciplinary character, combining elements of labor law, administrative law and human resources management, character reflected in the bibliography used. Another merit of this study is that the authors correlated the provisions of various laws: Constitution, Labor Code, Law no. 161/2003 on the transparency in exercising public dignities and public functions, Government Ordinance no. 137/2000 regarding the prevention and sanction of all discrimination forms, Government Ordinance no. 129/2000 concerning adults’ professional training.
