    Full Text Available En este artículo se analiza el progresivo proceso de medicalización del comportamiento alimentario por el cual una buena parte de los motivos pragmáticos o simbólicos que articulan la selección y el consumo humano de alimentos se ha sustituido por otros de orden nutricional. La normalización dietética se ha concretado, en particular en los contextos de relativa abundancia de alimentos, en torno de la dieta equilibrada, un patrón alimentario basado en la restricción y promoción del consumo de ciertos alimentos y nutrientes -qué y cuánto comer- y en la prescripción de un conjunto de pautas relativas a cómo, cuándo y con quién hacerlo, y cuyos objetivos han sido no sólo regular los cuidados del cuerpo y la salud, sino promover, a su vez, un cierto orden social y ético.This article describes how the progressive process of medicalization of food is inscribed within a biomedical logic that attempts to substitute many of the economic, adaptative and symbolic reasons that have ethnographically and historically conditioned eating habits in all cultures, exclusively for reasons of a dietetic nature. According to this logic, most of the population of modern societies does not know how to eat because they are victims of or have been made ill by the current profusion of food. They must, therefore, learn how to eat well, which in terms of eating practices means eating a little of everything, in moderation and in a balanced way. The main aim of current nutritional education is to (reestablish a supposed dietetic normality as far as food consumed, quantities, number of intakes and meal structures are concerned.

  2. Comer en Utopía

    Full Text Available Los estudios sociales sobre alimentación y las autoridades responsables de este campo coinciden en resaltar la situación paradójica del comensal actual: se sabe cómo se debe comer pero no se come como se debe. Enfrentarse con éxito a las paradojas suele requerir un cierto distanciamiento ?lingüístico y disciplinar? que ofrezca la sufi ciente perspectiva. Aquí se propone hacerlo desde la perspectiva histórica que una sociología de la utopía puede aportar al confl icto entre imaginarios alimentarios. Para ello, este artículo revisará los elementos comunes del pensamiento utópico/distópico en orden a extraer las categorías de mayor interés para un análisis sociológico de las políticas y comportamientos alimentarios. Después, recorreremos los modos en que algunas de las utopías clásicas han enfocado ?o desenfocado? la cuestión de la comida e intentaremos sacar algunas conclusiones.

    Full Text Available El Génesis pone como primer pecado comer la fruta prohibida. Que se tratara del Árbol del Bien y del Mal, que la promesa de la serpiente hecha a Eva fuera la de que accedería a un saber igual al saber divino, que este pasaje bíblico haya dado lugar a múltiples interpetaciones, incluída la metafórica, la alegórica, no invalidan el hecho de que se habla de una fruta y de que la primer falta fue comer. Aquellos que padecen de obesidad, de bulimia o de atracones saben eso: hay correlación entre comer y falta, se sienten culpables. Comen a escondidas, no se animan a hablar de ello, comunican la sensación de estar en pecado, el relato mismo suele estar impregnado de culpa, a veces hasta se asemeja a una confesión: “la comunicación es el pecado”, dice Bataille (1981. Por otra parte, la voluntad es incapaz de hacer algo al respecto. Por más que el sujeto se lo proponga una y mil veces, el impulso se impone más allá de ella. Son hechos observables, sin embargo la relación entre ellos no es tan clara ni es posible establecerla de forma tan directa.

  5. Building a Safety Culture in New Comers — A Case for Turkey

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Göktepe, B.G.; Dayday, N.; Oymaci, S.

    2016-01-01

    Background: Nuclear safety is a dynamic field. The nuclear power industry has been continuing to improve the safety and performance of operating reactors. However since the Fukushima event, nuclear safety and safety culture has become one of the highest priority issues around the world. Although a safety culture development program is necessary for all nuclear countries and companies, it is especially critical for new comers starting from the pre-operational phase. Safety Culture Aspects In Newcomers: When a country embarking on a Nuclear Power Program, there are many aspects to consider. Building a national nuclear power infrastructure as one of the priority is a complex issue, requiring several years of planning. Implementation of nuclear safety infrastructure includes various steps. Major progressive steps for ensuring nuclear safety requires the availability of suitably qualified staff and the establishment of an effective safety culture in the country of concern.

    Full Text Available Este estudo tem por objetivo discutir significados sobre alimentação escolar atribuídos por estudantes em escolas públicas na Bahia. Trata-se de compreender aspectos simbólicos associados à alimentação escolar na complexidade do mundo cotidiano da escola. Utiliza-se uma abordagem qualitativa para a compreensão do comer na escola e das noções sobre alimentação saudável, a partir das narrativas orais e escritas desses adoles­centes. Os relatos enunciam oposições entre alimentação estranha e familiar e vice-versa. O que é familiar torna-se estranho a depender do tempo/lugar. Citam diversos exemplos de alimentos que são da tradição, mas que se tornam estranhos ou não habituais ao horário. A cultura alimentar dos estudantes requer a obtenção de alimentos em dois momentos: merenda e almoço (ou jantar. Entidades estas que são distintas, não se mesclam e devem estar presentes na escola, pois para estes atores sociais, estudar e comer são necessidades que se complementam.This study seeks to discuss the significance of school nutrition expressed by students in public schools from the state of Bahia, Brazil. The objective is to understand the symbolic aspects associated with school nutrition. The results of a survey into the significance of nutrition offered by the Brazilian School Nutrition Program (PNAE expressed by students from six public schools in municipalities in the state of Bahia, Brazil, are presented. A qualitative approach to understand nutrition at school and notions about healthy food by analyzing oral and written narratives of adolescents is used. The reports point to opposing stances between food in the home and food outside the home. What is customary can appear strange depending on the time and place. In this sense, they do not make an association between healthy food and PNAE. The food culture requires students to eat food on two occasions: breakfast and lunch (or dinner.

    Full Text Available The paper analyzes the agri-food trade of Moldova from different aspects of intra-industry trade. The aim is to estimate the trend and extent of intra-industry trade in agri-food products of Moldova. The time series from 2001-2015 are examined. According to the obtained results, the level of intra-industry trade in agricultural and food products for Moldova is quite high (78%, fact which indicates a decline of trade relationships with EU countries and an increase with CIS countries. For most commodity groups the values of Grubel Lloyd index present a high average variability over time, fact which reflects the structural changes in Moldova’s agri-food trade. The values of A indices are very low and indicate that most of changes in trade flows had been inter-industrial in nature and probably generated high adjustment costs. The switching results of the B index of marginal intra-industry trade indicate that Moldova’s position on these markets considerably improved and strengthened. Rezumat.

  10. Clinical endpoint adjudication in a contemporary all-comers coronary stent investigation: methodology and external validation.

    Globalisation in coronary stent research calls for harmonization of clinical endpoint definitions and event adjudication. Little has been published about the various processes used for event adjudication or their impact on outcome reporting. We performed a validation of the clinical event committee (CEC) adjudication process on 100 suspected events in the RESOLUTE All-comers trial (Resolute-AC). Two experienced Clinical Research Organisations (CRO) that had already extensive internal validation processes in place, participated in the study. After initial adjudication by the primary-CEC, events were cross-adjudicated by an external-CEC using the same definitions. Major discrepancies affecting the primary end point of target-lesion failure (TLF), a composite of cardiac death, target vessel myocardial infarction (TV-MI), or clinically-indicated target-lesion revascularization (CI-TLR), were analysed by an independent oversight committee who provided recommendations for harmonization. Discordant adjudications were reconsidered by the primary CEC. Subsequently, the RAC database was interrogated for cases that based on these recommendations merited re-adjudication and these cases were also re-adjudicated by the primary CEC. Final discrepancies in adjudication of individual components of TLF occurred in 7 out of 100 events in 5 patients. Discrepancies for the (hierarchical) primary endpoint occurred in 5 events (2 cardiac deaths and 3 TV-MI). After application of harmonization recommendations to the overall RAC population (n=2292), the primary CEC adjudicated 3 additional clinical-TLRs and considered 1 TV-MI as no event. A harmonization process provided a high level of concordance for event adjudication and improved accuracy for final event reporting. These findings suggest it is feasible to pool clinical event outcome data across clinical trials even when different CECs are responsible for event adjudication. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

  11. The comER Gene Plays an Important Role in Biofilm Formation and Sporulation in both Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus cereus.

    Bacteria adopt alternative cell fates during development. In Bacillus subtilis, the transition from planktonic growth to biofilm formation and sporulation is controlled by a complex regulatory circuit, in which the most important event is activation of Spo0A, a transcription factor and a master regulator for genes involved in both biofilm formation and sporulation. In B. cereus, the regulatory pathway controlling biofilm formation and cell differentiation is much less clear. In this study, we show that a novel gene, comER, plays a significant role in biofilm formation as well as sporulation in both B. subtilis and B. cereus. Mutations in the comER gene result in defects in biofilm formation and a delay in spore formation in the two Bacillus species. Our evidence supports the idea that comER may be part of the regulatory circuit that controls Spo0A activation. comER likely acts upstream of sda, a gene encoding a small checkpoint protein for both sporulation and biofilm formation, by blocking the phosphor-relay and thereby Spo0A activation. In summary, our studies outlined a conserved, positive role for comER, a gene whose function was previously uncharacterized, in the regulation of biofilm formation and sporulation in the two Bacillus species.

    Full Text Available Numerous studies on the eating habits of industrialized societies have focused on analyzing the direction in which diet is moving. Most of these studies have been carried out either from an economic point of view (discussing purchases and changes in expenditure or from a nutritional point of view (describing changes in diet. From these perspectives, current practices, which fall under the umbrella of the so-called dietary modernity, are the object of medical are the objet of medical concerns and socioeconomic uncertainties that must be addressed because "people in modern societies do not know how to eat". Some of the hypotheses formulated from the anthropological and sociological standpoints that have accepted the destructuring of contemporary eating habits have been used to support to a large extent both medical and nutritional intervention and the business of the food industry. Other hypotheses, on the other hand, have openly criticized the acceptance of this supposed destructuring. Central to the debate is the need to design studies that can characterize eating habits methodologically, highlight which factors are really behind these habits, and reveal whether these habits are indeed changing.

    Numerosos estudios sobre las maneras de comer en las sociedades industrializadas han tenido como finalidad analizar hacia donde va la alimentación. No obstante, la mayoría de estos estudios han privilegiado una orientación económica (interesándose por las compras y la evolución del gasto o nutricional (interesándose por la evolución de la dieta. Desde estas perspectivas, las prácticas actuales, incluidas bajo el paraguas de la denominada modernidad alimentaria, son objeto de inquietudes facultativas y de incertidumbres socio-económicas sobre las que se debe actuar e intervenir.

    2018-03-01

    Full Text Available In Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer, the U.S. Supreme Court established a new constitutional rule. While the exact breadth of the rule remains in doubt, the new jurisprudential principle appears to be as follows—except where such actions would violate the Establishment Clause, the Free Exercise Clause prohibits constitutional actors from conferring or denying benefits solely because of individuals’ or entities’ religious exercises. As discussed in this article, this rule has immediate, long-term ramifications for constitutional jurisprudence, particularly as applied to religious freedom. In light of the potential changes it may engender, the purpose of this three-part article is to provide an overview of Trinity Lutheran and its expansion of rights for student religious groups on the campuses of public college and universities.

  16. Qué y cuánto comer: tomando medidas frente a las sociedades obesogénicas

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mabel Gracia Arnaiz

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Los problemas de salud relacionados con la alimentación se explican, con frecuencia, por razones socioculturales. Este artículo plantea la necesidad de reconsiderar dichas razones en el diagnóstico de empeoramiento de los hábitos alimentarios, ya que se han tipificado como agentes causales desde el fast-food al ocio pasivo, desde la desestructuración familiar al ritmo acelerado de vida, desde la generalización de la calefacción o el transporte mecanizado a la insuficiencia de equipamientos deportivos, desde la publicidad alimentaria a la falta de educación nutricional. Si esgrimirlas como causas no parece tarea difícil, sí lo es demostrarlas. En España, todos estos factores están presentes, pero apenas se sabe si han influido mucho o poco en la alimentación cotidiana, y si dicha influencia ha sido necesariamente negativa. Lo que sí constatamos es que las maneras de comer actuales responden, principalmente, a los constreñimientos sociolaborales, la ruptura de los aprendizajes alimentarios, el reparto del trabajo doméstico y el triunfo de las preferencias individuales. Esto explica, en parte, porqué aun conociendo las recomendaciones nutricionales, ciertas prácticas alimentarias parecen alejarse de la "dieta óptima".

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To construct a scale for assessing the quality of mealtime habits in a sample of urban Mexican adults, computing the contribution of a set of advisable and unadvisable mealtime habits. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed an exploratory factor analysis among 7 472 adults participating in the baseline assessment of the Health Workers Cohort Study, to assess the mealtime habits quality. Likelihood ratio test for difference of two probabilities and test for the difference of two means were used to identify differences between low and high categories of the Mealtime Habits Quality Scale (MHQS across variables of interest. RESULTS: Participants with the top quality of mealtime habits showed lower rates of overweight, obesity, abdominal obesity, and elevated body fat. They were also more adherent to a prudent dietary pattern than a western dietary pattern, and consumed more fruits and vegetables. CONCLUSIONS: Anthropometric and dietary variables differed across MHQS categories. However, further validation of the scale, and assessment of their ability to predict weight gain or related diseases are needed, using prospective and intervention studies.OBJETIVO: Construir una escala para evaluar la calidad de los hábitos al comer, calculando la contribución de un grupo de hábitos recomendables y no recomendables, en población adulta urbana de México.

    To evaluate the 1-year patency of the 4-F Pulsar-18 self-expanding nitinol stent for treatment of femoropopliteal occlusive disease in a national, prospective, multicenter, all-comers registry. Between January and June 2012, the German PEACE I all-comers prospective registry enrolled 148 patients with symptomatic femoropopliteal lesions (Rutherford category 2-5) undergoing recanalization and implantation of the Pulsar-18 SE nitinol stent at 6 clinical centers. Thirty patients did not have the 12-month follow-up visit (18 declined reevaluation, 5 withdrew consent, and 7 died), leaving 118 patients (64 men; mean 71.9±9.6 age years) for the 1-year evaluation. The average lesion length was 111.5±71.4 mm, and 38 of the 118 lesions were classified as TASC II D. More than half the lesions (67, 56.7%) were chronic total occlusions (CTO). The popliteal segment was involved in 22 (18.7%) lesions. The mean stented length was 122.7±64.5 mm. Routine follow-up included duplex ultrasound at 6 and 12 months. Outcome measures were primary patency and no clinically driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) within 12 months. The overall primary patency rates after 6 and 12 months were 87.4% and 79.5%, respectively; in the popliteal segments, the rate was 71.4% after 12 months. The overall freedom from TLR was 93.2% after 6 months and 81% after 12 months. Ankle-brachial index, pain-free walking distance, and Rutherford category all improved significantly (pPulsar-18 self-expanding nitinol stent in femoropopliteal lesions averaging 111.5 mm long showed promising primary patency and freedom from TLR after 6 and 12 months. Diabetes had no negative impact on patency. Primary patency in the popliteal segments was acceptable at 12 months.

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to contribute to the study of the saffron trade in Catalonia in the so-called period, starting from a rather unknown source: the regulation proceeded from the Diputado del Genera l, whose aim was to fight against the fraud that very often was committed and, thus, the delegates oversaw the whole saffron circuit all over the country; the tillage, work out and trade in the frame of an ambitious plan stablished in order to guarantee the quality of the catalan product and specially in order to control the fiscal incomes that the saffron trade supplied to the Generalitat.

    El present estudi constitueix una primera aproximació al tema del comerç del safra al Principat en aquell període a partir duna font poc coneguda: les ordinacions de la Diputació del General.

    2017-11-01

    Loop type bubble columns have good performance of liquid circulation and mass transfer by airlift effect, where the liquid circulation time is an important measurable characteristic parameter. This parameter is affected by the column construction, the aspect ratio of the column, the cross-sectional area ratio of down comer to riser (R), and the superficial gas velocity in the riser (UGR). In this work, the mean gas holdup and the liquid circulation time (TC) have been measured in four types of loop airlift type bubble column: concentric tube internal loop airlift type, rectangular internal loop airlift type, external loop airlift type, external loop airlift with separator. Air and tap water were used as gas and liquid phase, respectively. The results have demonstrated that the mean gas holdup in riser increases in proportion to UGR, and that it in downcomer changes according to the geometric parameters of each bubble column. TC has been found to conform to an empirical equation which depends on UGR and the length of draft tube or division plate in the region of 0.33 < R < 1.

    To evaluate the target lesion failure (TLF) rate of the SYNERGY stent in all-comers, multiethnic Asian population. Currently, most drug eluting stents deliver anti-proliferative drugs from a durable polymer which is associated with a risk of late stent thrombosis. The novel everolimus-eluting, platinum chromium SYNERGY stent is coated with a bioabsorbable abluminal polymer that resolves within 4 months. This was a prospective, single center registry of consecutive patients treated with the SYNERGY stent between December 2012 and April 2015. The primary outcome was the incidence of TLF, defined as the combination of cardiac death, target vessel myocardial infarction, or clinically driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) at 1 year. A total of 807 patients received the SYNERGY stent during the study period. One-year clinical outcome data was available for 765 patients (94.8%) and were considered for statistical analysis. The mean age was 60.7 ± 10.8 years, and 83.4% were males. Patients with acute myocardial infarction consisted of 50.3% (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: 23.0%, Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: 27.3%) of the study population. The treated lesions were complex (ACC/AHA type B2/C: 72.7%). The primary end point of TLF at 1 year was 5.8%. Rates of cardiac mortality, target vessel myocardial infarction, and TLR were 4.2, 1.0, and 1.3%, respectively, at 1 year. Predictors of the incidence and time to early TLF were female gender, Malay ethnicity, diabetes mellitus, acute myocardial infarction at presentation, a prior history of coronary artery bypass surgery and the presence of lesion calcification. The incidence of definite stent thrombosis was 0.4% at 1 year. In this registry, the use of the SYNERGY stent was associated with low rates of TLF at 1 year. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Durable polymer drug-eluting stents (DP DES) may contribute to persistent inflammation, delayed endothelial healing and subsequent late DES thrombosis. The aim of this Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) sub-study was to compare healing and neointimal coverage of a novel bioabsorbable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (FIREHAWK®) (BP DES) versus the DP DES (XIENCE) at 90 days in an all comers patient population. The TARGET All Comers study is a prospective multicenter randomised post-market trial of 1656 patients randomised 1:1 to FIREHAWK or XIENCE at 21 centers in 10 European countries. The TARGET OCT sub-study enrolled 36 consecutive patients with 52 lesions at 6 centers proficient in OCT. Follow-up OCT was performed at 3 months or prior to revascularisation when occurring before the 3-month window. The substudy was designed for non-inferiority of the primary endpoint of neointimal thickness. At follow-up, the mean neointimal thickness by OCT (52 lesions, Firehawk, n=24; Xience, n=28), was not significantly different between groups (Firehawk 75.5μm vs Xience V 82.3 μm) meeting the primary endpoint of non-inferiority (Pnoninferiority<0.001). The percentage of stent strut coverage was high in both groups (strut level: 99.9% ± 0.3 vs 100% ± 0.1, p=0.26), and the proportion of malapposed struts (1.0±1.6% vs. 1.2±2.0%, p=0.51) was low in both groups. Based on OCT, the FIREHAWK BP DES has a similar healing response 3 months after implantation compared to the DP DES, with near complete strut coverage, moderate neointima formation and minimal strut malapposition.

    Full Text Available O comportamento e o padrão alimentar são complexos, envolvendo aspectos metabólicos, fisiológicos e ambientais, e apresentando ritmicidade circadiana, herdada e espécie específica, sendo a humana essencialmente diurna. Este estudo tem como objetivo descrever a Síndrome do Comer Noturno, caracterizada por um atraso circadiano do padrão alimentar, mediado por alterações neuroendócrinas ao estresse. Procedeu-se à revisão da bibliografia existente, a partir do exame de artigos publicados pela literatura internacional nas bases de dados dos sites Pubmed, Lilacs, Sirus, referentes ao período de 1955 até as últimas publicações em 2007. Realizou-se um levantamento bibliográfico usando os seguintes descritores: night eating syndrome, sleep, circadian rhythm, appetite, nocturnal eating. Foram localizados 74 artigos e destes foram selecionados 26, cujo tema central era a Síndrome do Comer Noturno. Apesar dos estudos realizados, ainda existe longo percurso a ser percorrido para compreender a gênese da Síndrome do Comer Noturno e as relações intrínsecas desta com outros processos fisiopatogênicos. Tendo em conta que esta síndrome está vinculada ao controle da fome e da saciedade e à dessincronização entre o ritmo alimentar e o ritmo sono/vigília, a compreensão do seu processo gênico poderá demonstrar o impacto da dessincronização dos ritmos circadianos da alimentação no processo saúde-doença, e auxiliar a compreensão de fatores implicados no índice crescente de obesidade da sociedade moderna.Behavior and eating patterns are complex, involve metabolic, physiological and environmental aspects and have inherited and species-specific circadian rhythmicity, with humans being essentially diurnal.

    Full Text Available Comer, alimentar ou nutrir circulam na nossa cultura, aproximadamente, como sinônimos e desse modo não dão conta das transformações que vêm ocorrendo na alimentação, que desejadas ou indesejadas contam com um hibridismo de padrões que representa uma mudança tanto de regras como de preferências alimentares. O objetivo do artigo é tornar essas concepções de senso comum categorias de análise e interpretação para pesquisas das Ciências Humanas e da Saúde, numa perspectiva teórica, através da conceituação. Neste espaço interdisciplinar da Nutrição e das Ciências Sociais, o alimento aparece associado a uma função natural (biológica, numa concepção em que natureza se contrapõe à cultura, e a comida assume sentidos e significados culturais (simbólicos. A alimentação expressa divisão do trabalho, da riqueza, é criação histórico-cultural através da qual se pode estudar uma sociedade. Atribui-se à Nutrição um sentido de ação racional, oriundo da constituição dessa ciência na modernidade, inserida num processo histórico de racionalização científica do comer e do alimentar-se. Consideramos que através da conceituação na prática interdisciplinar de pesquisa, que envolve um espaço compartilhado de saberes, podemos ser menos limitados por um modelo teórico uniformizado de saber e mais livres para pensar questões sobre a vida.Eating, nourishment or nutrition circulate in our culture as synonyms and thus do not account for the changes that occur in nourishment, which intended or unintended, have a hybridization pattern that represents a change of rules and food preferences.

    Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is associated with poor outcome. Whether this association differs in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) as compared to acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients is unknown. Definitions and Methods: PRODIGY trial patients were defined as stable CAD or ACS according to the initial presentation. CI-AKI was defined as an increase (Δ) of serum creatinine (SCr) ≥25% above baseline. Two endpoints were considered: all-cause death and the composite of death, stroke, or myocardial infarction (MI). The interaction between CI-AKI, clinical setting, and the impact of increasing ΔSCr% cut-offs were also explored. Two thousand three patients were enrolled in the PRODIGY trial, 85 patients were excluded for missing SCr data, leading to a population of 1,918 patients. CI-AKI incidence was 6.7% in stable CAD and 12.2% in ACS patients. CI-AKI was associated with all-cause mortality [adjusted hazard ratio (aHR) of 2.05, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.38-3.05, P  0.001]. In a large, contemporary, all-comers percutaneous coronary intervention population, CI-AKI was associated with an increased risk of all-cause death and the composite of death, stroke, or MI. While CI-AKI is more common in ACS than in stable CAD patients, its adjusted prognostic impact on the composite endpoint appears to be more pronounced in patients with stable CAD. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Full Text Available Our objetctive is to investigate forms of organization of the self derived from the experience of crossing traumatic situations. The starting point was the treatment of a young woman that, after having suffered cranioencephalic trauma, developed compulsion for eating sweets and talking. This can be a resource in face of traumatic experiences that break a protecting layer and, thus, the contours of the self. To reduce anguish derived from the sensation of a broken self, eating can be an attempt to exist, in other words, to construct boundaries capable of providing consistency to the self.

According to intellectuals at the time, the typology of the food consumed as well as its culinary forms seems to reflect an invented ethnography which implies reverse social expressions regarding loathsome gastronomy. Some features of this abhorrent gastronomy can be tracked on the American continent through inquisitorial records and the extirpation of idolatry.Del complejo escenario que las juntas diabólicas o aquelarres configuran, este artículo se centra en las comidas y sus expresiones sensibles según se desprende de los relatos inquisitoriales, con especial énfasis en el proceso de las brujas de Zugarramurdi, cuyo Auto de Fe, celebrado en Noviembre de 1610 ha cumplido los 400 años. La tipología de viandas consumidas en el aquelarre y sus expresiones culinarias, según las aportaciones de los intelectuales de la época, reflejan una etnografía inventada que configura expresiones sociales inversas en función de una gastronomía nefanda y abominable, algunas de cuyas características pueden rastrearse en el continente americano a través de los expedientes inquisitoriales y de extirpación de idolatrías.

    Full Text Available La notion de « biens communs » est investie d’une portée particulière à une époque ou on utilise aussi le concept de "biens publics mondiaux" sorti tout droit des divers processus plurivoques qui constituent la globalisation aujourd’hui. Ces expressions, proches mais différentes, amènent nécessairement à s’interroger, moins sur la propriété que sur l’appropriation et ses différentes formes. Elles appellent aussi une réflexion sur la production de la valeur et la rareté. Cet article rappelle d’abord les principales approches anthropologiques sur la circulation des biens, les échanges, l’appropriation. La notion de biens communs renvoie à un âge d’or antérieur à la propriété, une sorte de paradis perdu largement mythique. On s’interroge ensuite sur la notion actuelle de biens publics mondiaux, qui vient  sublimer l’enfer de l’exploitation et de la concurrence à l’échelle globale.The notion of common good has a specific role at the present time of globalisation. The concept of global public good is also used in this context. These terms, close together but also different, bring to the questions of appropriation, production and scarcity. This article first reminds the main anthropological approaches on circulation of goods, exchanges, and appropriation. The notion of common goods makes a reference to a golden age, a lost paradise before property. Then we propose a critical analysis of global public goods which are supposed to sublimate  global exploitation and competition.

This vision overlooks the crucial importance of resource allocation micro-processes, private property and business activity. Therewith, the process of making European funds profitable and, consequently, the EU convergence feasible depends on the extent to which the absorption environment is structurally reformed.

    Evaluation of the long-term prognostic value of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in octogenarians. Six hundred and twenty-nine octogenarians [51% previous myocardial infarction (MI) or revascularization] who underwent single-isotope MPI (78% {sup 201}Tl, 22% {sup 99m}Tc-tetrofosmin) with exercise (38% Bruce, 2% leg ergometry) or pharmacologic (58% adenosine, 2% dobutamine) stress were studied. All patients had LVEF determined by echocardiography within 1 month from MPI. Myocardial perfusion scoring was performed on a 17-segment LV-model with a 5-point grading system and three summed stress score (SSS)-based risk categories were formed [high-(SSS > 12), low-(SSS < 4), medium]. Prospective follow-up was performed to document all-cause (ACD), cardiac death (CD), MI, and revascularization. Revascularization was used to censor follow-up in survival analysis regarding ACD, CD, and CD/MI. For analysis of the CD, MI, or late revascularization (LR) composite, only revascularizations within 3 months from MPI (early revascularizations) were used for censoring. After 9.3 years there were 187 ACDs, 86 CDs, 28 MIs, and 77 revascularizations, including 28 early revascularizations. Adjusting for LVEF and stress-modality type, SSS was identified as an independent predictor of ACD [HR 1.03 (1.01-1.05)], CD [HR 1.05 (1.03-1.08)], CD,MI [HR 1.05 (1.02-1.07)], and CD,MI or LR [HR 1.05 (1.03-1.07)] (p ≤ 0.001 in all cases). Increased lung uptake had independent prognostic value only for the CD, MI, or LR end-point [HR 3 (1.2-7.7), p = 0.02]. Survival modeling demonstrated that LVEF and SSS, but not non-perfusion scintigraphic data provided incremental prognostic value over pre-test available clinical and historical information for all end-points. Differences between Kaplan-Meier survival curves of SSS-based risk groups were significant for all end-points (p < 0.001 in all cases). In octogenarians, MPI provides effective long-term risk stratification, regardless of stress type used or underlying cardiac function. (orig.)

    Using data from a commercial pressure wire system (St. Jude Medical) we previously developed an automated "smart" algorithm to determine a reproducible value for minimum FFR (smFFR) and confirmed that it correlated very closely with measurements made off-line by experienced coronary physiology core laboratories. In this study we used the same "smart" minimum algorithm to analyze data derived from a different, commercial pressure wire system (Philips Volcano) and compared the values obtained to both operator-defined steady state FFR and the online automated minimum FFR reported by the pressure wire analyser. For this analysis, we used the data collected during the VERIFY 2 study (Hennigan et al. in Circ Cardiovasc Interv, doi: 10.1161/CIRCINTERVENTIONS.116.004016 ) in which we measured FFR in 257 intermediate coronary stenoses (mean DS 48%) in 197 patients. Maximal hyperaemia was induced using intravenous adenosine (140 mcg/kg/min). We recorded both the online minimum FFR generated by the analyser and the operator-reported steady state FFR. Subsequently, the raw pressure tracings were coded, anonymised and 256/257 were subjected to further off-line analysis using the smart minimum FFR (smFFR) algorithm. The operator-defined steady state FFR correlated well with smFFR: r = 0.988 (p 0.05 among methods were rare but in these cases the two automated algorithms almost always agreed with each other rather than with the operator-reported value. Within the VERIFY 2 dataset, experienced operators reported a similar FFR value to both an online automated minimum (Philips Volcano) and off-line "smart" minimum computer algorithm. Thus, treatment decisions and clinical studies using either method will produce nearly identical results.

  8. ENTRE A FOME E A VONTADE DE COMER: OS SIGNIFICADOS UTILITÁRIOS E HEDÔNICOS DA EXPERIÊNCIA DE CONSUMO EM RESTAURANTES

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve como objetivo conhecer o significado do consumo de serviços a partir da natureza (ordinária/extraordinária da experiência vivida pelo consumidor. A pesquisa teve um caráter fenomenológico-hermêutico e como método optou-se pelo estudo de casos. Foram selecionadas duas empresas com posicionamentos diferenciados: um restaurante fast food (comida rápida e padronizada, com características utilitárias e outro à la carte (serviço de refeição mais elaborado e personalizado, com características hedônicas. Na coleta de dados empregaram-se as técnicas do grupo focal, observação direta e entrevistas em profundidade. Os resultados demonstraram que as características utilitárias do restaurante A, influenciam os consumidores a interpretarem suas experiências como ordinárias, e que o restaurante B, com seus produtos e serviços que valorizam os componentes mais hedônicos, permitem aos consumidores reconhecerem suas experiências como fora do comum ou extraordinárias. Nuances foram detectadas nos significados atribuídos às experiências de consumo, ao longo do continuum que vai das experiências mais ordinárias às experiências mais extraordinárias, o que é explicado pelo fato de que o consumidor é, em última instância, o condutor da interpretação de sua experiência e a subjetividade é um componente inerente à sua condição.

    Full Text Available Thermal fatigue and pressurized thermal shock phenomena are the main problems for the reactor pressure vessel and the T-junctions both of them depend on the mixing of the coolant. The mixing process, flow and temperature distribution has been investigated experimentally using particle image velocimetry, laser induced fluorescence, and simulated by CFD tools. The obtained results showed that the ratio of flow rate between the main pipe and the branch pipe has a big influence on the mixing process. The particle image velocimetry/planar laser-induced fluorescence measurements technologies proved to be suitable for the investigation of turbulent mixing in the complicated flow system: both velocity and temperature distribution are important parameters in the determination of thermal fatigue and pressurized thermal shock. Results of the applied these techniques showed that both of them can be used as a good provider for data base and to validate CFD results.

    Full Text Available The municipal taxes are going to be consolidated in Barcelona in the 14th century; one of the most important taxes in the city was the meat consumption tax. This tax was contributing to the municipal exchequer with a lot of money. The evolution of the tax will have a lot of importance on the meat market of Barcelona, because his impact on the prices was very strong. The joint study of the tax and the meat market in Barcelona can help us to see the evolution of a short distance market; this is specially interesting because it is a market very linked with the territory.

    Los impuestos indirectos municipales se consolidan en Barcelona a lo largo del siglo XIV, entre estos uno de las más importantes era la que gravaba el consumo de carne. La evolución de la imposición influirá de una manera determinante en el mercado de carne de Barcelona, ya que desde el primer momento tendrá un importante impacto sobre los precios. El estudio conjunto de la evolución del impuesto indirecto y de la venta de carne en Barcelona puede ayudar a dilucidar la evolución de un mercado de corta distancia profundamente vinculado con el territorio.

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available Las reflexiones realizadas sobre los bienes públicos experimentan en la actualidad un nuevo auge debido, principalmente, a la mundialización del concepto. Ciertamente, el aumento de las preocupaciones medioambientales resalta la importancia de una nueva categoría de bienes públicos, que todavía no ha sido abordada por los juristas: los bienes públicos mundiales, noción anglosajona que proviene de la economía y engloba a los bienes de valor universal, cuya gestión debe responder a objetivos de solidaridad. En este contexto, debe señalarse que uno de los principales elementos del debate acerca de los bienes públicos medioambientales es el análisis de las amenazas de sobreexplotación y degradación que les afecta. Por ello y para abordar este fenómeno, el presente trabajo distingue dos categorías de bienes (los bienes demaniales y los bienes públicos mundiales y nacionales y examina cómo se ejerce el derecho de propiedad sobre cada una de ellas, centrándose en los tres atributos del mismo: el abusus, el asits y e\\ fructus. Reflections collected in public property are currently experiencing a renewed prominence, due mainly to the globalization of the concept. Certainly, the increasing of environmental concerns highlights the importance of a new category of public goods, which hasn’t been addressed by the jurists yet: global public goods, Anglo-Saxon notion coming from the economy and that encompasses universal value goods, whose management must meet objectives of solidarity. In this context, it should be noted that one of the main elements of debate about environmental public goods is the analysis of the threats of overexploitation and degradation that affects them. Therefore, and to address this phenomenon, this paper identifies two categories of goods (financial assets and global and national public goods and examines how to exercise the property law on each of them, focusing on its three attributes: the abusus, usus and

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Becker , Gary S.

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo examina los costos de reducir el consumo de un bien declarando ilegal su producción y castigando a los productores ilegales. Las drogas son el ejemplo más destacado. Cuanto más inelástica es la demanda o la oferta, mayor es el incremento del costo social de reducir la producción con mayor represión. Así, el gasto público óptimo de capturar y condenar a los proveedores ilegales no sólo depende de la diferencia entre los valores social y privado del consumo sino también de las elasticidades. Cuando la demanda y la oferta no son muy elásticas, no paga hacer cumplir la prohibición a menos que el valor social sea negativo. También muestra que un impuesto monetario reduce la producción e incrementa el precio más que la represión óptima del bien si fuera ilegal, aunque algunos productores vayan a la clandestinidad para evadir el impuesto monetario. Los impuestos al consumo y las restricciones a las cantidades no son equivalentes cuando la represión tiene costos

  12. Pluralismo y bien común en el derecho constitucional

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pablo Nuevo

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo, el profesor Pablo Nuevo analiza las consecuencias que el abandono de la doctrina del bien común tiene en el derecho constitucional, a partir del estudio de la incoporación de valores al ordenamiento jurídico que realiza la Constitución Española de 1978. Esta incorporación parecería dotar de contenido material a la Constitución, que pasa a estar al servicio de la dignidad de la persona y de los valores de justicia, libertad, igualdad y pluralismo político. No obstante esta positivación de un orden axiológico, a juicio de Nuevo, el entendiminiento que el Tribunal Constitucional ha realizado del valor pluralismo contribuye a debilitar el propio Estado constitucional pues el Tribunal, de la mano del principio democrático y de la soberanía popular, ha interpretado el valor pluralismo como relativismo, negando a los valores un fundamento más allá del consenso. Entender el pluralismo como igual legitimidad de toda representación del hombre y del mundo, que funda un derecho a seguir dicha concepción en todos los aspectos de la vida social, favorece que los postulados de la Constitución sean entendidos como significantes sin significado, debiendo éste ser construido a partir del principio mayoritario, lo que conduce tanto al debilitamiento de los derechos fundamentales, como a la progresiva erosión de las condiciones sociales en que puede favorecer el Estado constitucional. Como subraya el autor, el Estado moderno vive de presupuestos que no puede crear, pero sí en todo caso destruir. De igual manera, para el profesor el constitucionalismo liberal, pluralista e individualista de nuestros tiempos, carece de herramientas conceptuales para solucionar las aporías que plantea las sociedades occidentales de nuestro tiempo, que se debaten entre el miedo al Leviatán y la inseguridad de un mundo anómico. El autor sostiene que solo con una vuelta a la ley natural es posible ordenar la vida política de manera que

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available La circulación de los bienes en el tráfico jurídico por la voluntad de los particulares es un tema crucial que interesa, no sólo a las partes del contrato, sino, a todos en general, y, en particular, a los acreedores del transmitente o del adquirente y a los terceros adquirentes de derechos sobre el bien. En este trabajo se analizará el régimen de trasmisión de los bienes por negocio inter vivos en el Derecho español, dentro del marco europeo, y con particular referencia a la trasmisión inmobiliaria. España adopta un peculiar sistema de trasmisión de los bienes porque se establecen reglas genéricas cuya aplicación se da con independencia de la naturaleza mueble o inmueble del bien; pero a su lado se superponen otras que tratan de fijar los efectos de la publicidad registral inmobiliaria. La coordinación entre dichas reglas produce un original resultado, que puede constituir el punto de encuentro de los diversos sistemas registrales europeos.

    Full Text Available La santé constitue un domaine dans lequel les notions de bien commun ou de bien public mondial sont particulièrement pertinentes. Il faut cependant préciser de quels biens il est question. A titre d’exemple, le droit français comporte des notions susceptibles de qualifier le droit aux soins (comme droit inaliénable, ou le médicament, objet de propriété intellectuelle comme de propriété « traditionnelle ». Un droit international des biens de santé peut de la même manière être fondé sur un droit d’usage de chacun sur la molécule qui est la même dans le médicament générique et celui de marque. Une procédure d’accès équivalent aux produits, brevetés ou non, pourrait être mise en œuvre par principe dès la découverte, afin de parvenir rapidement à des prix équitables.Health is a field particularly suitable for notions as commons or public goods. It is necessary however to know which goods may be concerned. For instance, French lawyers use concepts which can be used in order to qualify right to care (as an inalienable right, or medicine as an object of intellectual property as well as “traditional” one. An international law for health goods could be also based on a right of use for each person on the molecule which is the same in the generic drug or in the patented one. A process of “equivalent access” to licensed or free products could be initiated, from the discovery itself to the use, in order to obtain rapidly fair prices.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se desarrolla un modelo electoral de votos probabilísticos para racionalizar la provisión de bienes públicos locales en un sistema descentralizado de gobiernos locales autónomos. En nuestra economía, la heterogeneidad de preferencias por bienes públicos conlleva a un problema de elección social que es resuelto mediante una elección estatal. El modelo teórico sugiere una serie de proposiciones sobre los determinantes del gasto público que pueden ser verificadas empíricamente. En particular, el modelo sugiere que si los bienes públicos no muestran externalidades regionales, el gasto del gobierno es explicado por la distribución del ingreso y la población en la entidad. Si los bienes públicos muestran externalidades regionales, la distribución del ingreso y el costo de los bienes públicos a lo largo de la economía (y no sólo de la entidad determinan el gasto público estatal. El modelo también permite identificaralgunas configuraciones del ingreso en la economía que pueden llevar a asimetrías en la oferta de bienes públicos que resultan de una reducción en el promedio del costo per cápita de los bienes públicos.

    Full Text Available Como respuesta a la necesidad de una mayor información para la gestión, los sistemas contables públicos han sido sometidos a un proceso general de reforma, especialmente en la administración local. Estas reformas afectan, entre otros, al tratamiento contable de los activos fijos. Dada la especial naturaleza que poseen algunos de estos activos, como es el caso de los bienes destinados a uso general, este artículo tiene por objeto analizar la problemática contable que tales bienes originan, mostrando diferentes posturas académicas y las prácticas contables de las entidades locales en diferentes países europeos. En general, se aprecia una clara tendencia a la presentación de mayor información sobre el activo fijo en los estados financieros, siendo el criterio de valoración más utilizado el coste histórico. Palabras clave: bienes de uso general, contabilidad pública, entidades locales europeas. ABSTRACT In response to the need for better management information, pubic sector accounting systems have been subjected to a general reform process, especially in local government. These reforms cover, among other things, accounting for capital assets. Given the special nature of some of these assets, such as community assets, this article aims to analyse the problematic roots of accounting, examining different academic positions as well as the accounting rules and practices of local authorities in different European countries. In general, there appears to be a clear tendency to present more information on capital assets in financial statements, with historic cost being the most utilised valuation criteria.

Diseño/metodología/Enfoque: Para este estudio, fue efectuada una revisión de literatura, de la posición del POCAL (1999, de las NICSP del IPSASB, y de la perspectiva doctrinal, con respecto al reconocimiento de los bienes de dominio público. Además, se realizó un estudio de la evolución de los valores de los bienes de dominio público, de los años 2006 a 2013, del total de los 308 municipios portugueses, para concluir acerca de la existencia de dificultades en el reconocimiento de estos activos y de la necesidad de adoptar los normativos internacionales. Aportaciones y Resultados: En algunos municipios portugueses, el proceso de inventario aún no está concluido, existiendo dificultades con respecto al reconocimiento de los BDP. Dichas dificultades resultan de que el POCAL (1999 no presenta los requisitos para el reconocimiento de los activos; problema superado en la NICSP nº 17 del IPSASB (2006b, que refiere esos requisitos. Adoptar un nuevo Sistema de Normalización Contable aplicable a la Administración Pública (SNC-AP, basado en las NICSP, puede ser la solución para dichas cuestiones, introduciendo criterios a considerar en el reconocimiento de los activos, que aseguren la comparabilidad de la información y de los valores del patrimonio de los municipios portugueses. Limitaciones: La inexistencia de criterios de reconocimiento a seguir por los municipios trae limitaciones al nivel de la comparabilidad de los valores de los diferentes componentes del activo presentados por los varios municipios. Valor añadido: Este trabajo nos enseña que, en Portugal, aún existen problemas con

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available In the present paper we analyze the determinants of happiness proxying by subjective welfare. The main objective is twofold: on the one hand, to put to the test the Easterlin’s paradox (the lack of a direct relationship between income and subjective wellbeing at aggregate level and, on the other hand, to weight influence of relational goods in determining happiness. The analytical framework adopts the perspective of happiness economics and the empirical evidence is derived from the estimation of a microeconometric function of happiness applying a Logit model both when using cross sectional and panel data. The results show that in Spanish society income plays a secondary and subjective role, while other variables that are associated directly or indirectly to relational goods are revealed to be very important.En el presente trabajo se analizan los determinantes de la felicidad, entendida esta como satisfacción subjetiva revelada. El principal objetivo tiene un doble componente: por un lado, se trata de contrastar la paradoja de Easterlin para la sociedad española (ausencia de un vínculo directo entre el incremento de la renta per capita y la evolución del bienestar subjetivo revelado a nivel agregado y, por otro, evaluar el papel que desempeñan los bienes relacionales como determinantes de la felicidad. El marco analítico adoptado se encuadra dentro de la denominada happiness economics y la evidencia empírica se deriva de la estimación de una función microeconométrica de la felicidad aplicando un modelo Logit tanto en cortes temporales como en datos de panel. Los resultados obtenidos permiten concluir que en España el ingreso desempeña un papel secundario y subjetivo, mientras que se revelan como importantes las variables asociadas directa o indirectamente a los bienes relacionales.

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available Le paysage est dorénavant partie prenante des politiques publiques locales, souvent affiché au cœur même du projet de territoire. Cependant le débat reste largement ouvert dès lors qu’il s’agit de préciser à quoi « sert le paysage » et de lui associer une/des valeurs particulières, susceptibles de porter et de légitimer la problématique paysagère au cours du montage du projet. Ce texte part du constat que deux termes sont de manière récurrente associés au paysage, le patrimoine et, plus récemment, le bien commun, et se propose d’interroger cette orientation du discours sur le paysage. La pratique et le cadre juridique français, tendent à enfermer le paysage dans un registre avant tout patrimonial, privilégiant une logique de protection. L’expression de bien commun pose question : est-ce un équivalent de patrimoine, une facilité de langage portée par la mode, ou un apport innovant qui permet de réinterroger la place du paysage dans le débat et les méthodes d’intervention? Revenant sur les cadres théoriques de la réflexion sur les biens communs et sur sa diffusion actuelle dans l’ensemble des sciences sociales et environnementales, ce texte cherchera à identifier ce qu’elle peut apporter à la compréhension de la place du paysage dans les projets, en mettant notamment l’accent sur la question de l’accessibilité et de la négociation.The landscape is now part of local public policies, often displayed at the very heart of territorial projects. But the debate remains wide open when it comes to specifying what should be the use of “landscape" and to determine with which particular value, in order to legitimize the thematic of landscape in the building of the territorial project. This text is based on the observation that two notions are consistently associated with landscape: heritage and, more recently, common good. We propose to examine the effect of these notions on the contemporary discourses

    Full Text Available Durante el siglo XVIII tuvo lugar en el municipio de Requena un proceso de colonización agraria por establecimiento de familias sobre unos territorios hasta entonces prácticamente deshabitados. El poblamiento y la misma colonización fue hecha a expensas de los bienes omunales, dehesas y montes blancos, gestionados por el Concejo de la villa de Requena, cuyos responsables no sólo malvendieron y toleraron la usurpación particular de los terrenos oncejiles, sino que fueron parte interesada en la misma, hasta el punto de acaparar la mayor parte de las tierras baldías. Al mismo tiempo el reparto, la enajenación y la adquisición de las dehesas concejiles por varias docenas de colonos dieron origen a que sobre aquellas fértiles tierras se desarrollaran luego muchas de las aldeas que hoy componen el paisaje rural del término. En menos de un siglo el ayuntamiento quedó privado de más de 60.000 hectáreas, de las que unas 20.000 fueron ganadas para la agricultura por colonos labradores cuyo número aumentó de sólo 80 en 1667 a 161 en 1731 y a 752 en 1831.

Palabras que a veces parecen querer levantar por las solapas al que lee, como diciendo, “entérate, está pasando ahora y es importante que lo descubras”, mientras desarrolla ideas a las que vuelve y recalca, pasados los capítulos, en un ejercicio circular que pretende dejar clara –y lo consigue– la tesis central: ya existe una nueva forma de periodismo entendido como bien común (sí, al igual que el agua o el aire que respiramos, libre, de código abierto y mancomunado. Aire nuevo para una sociedad desencantada, para un periodismo en busca de modelos y para unas aulas donde se forman los futuros profesionales en una universidad maltratada, pero quizá por ello, también sumida en la conformidad de un saber rutinario.

    The ECC bypass phenomenon in the PWR reactor down-comer, which delays the reactor vessel refilling, after cold leg large break LOCA accident, has been subject of analysis in this paper. In the paper, a particular construction modification of the reactor down-comer has been suggested by inserting vertical ribs, aimed to intensify the reactor ECC refilling following the LOCA accident, and to advance the thermal-hydraulics safety of post-accidental cooling of the PWR reactors. To verify the effectiveness of the suggested down-comer construction modification, some properly selected results, obtained by corresponding verified mathematical model, have been presented in this paper.

Aunque los diversos trabajos experimentales concuerdan en la existencia de estos sentimientos catalogados como "bondad", no es claro si los sujetos actúan así para mejorar el bienestar de los demás (altruismo o porque se sienten bien realizando este tipo acciones (satisfacción moral.

    La maintenance a évolué : d’abord confinée à l’entretien des équipements “réparer“ les pannes puis élargie à leur surveillance “prévoir” les pannes elle est intégrée aujourd’hui dès la phase de conception du produit avec notamment le concept de “maintenabilité” du produit. L’ingénierie de maintenance désigne ce processus d’accompagnement d’un bien industriel durant toutes les phases de son cycle de vie de la conception au démantèlement qui permet d’optimiser l’exploitation de ce bien et son coût global life cycle cost. Cet ouvrage décrit les différentes phases du cycle de vie en exposant les techniques qui permettent d’intégrer à chaque étape les concepts de maintenance.

    Full Text Available Este artículo trata de la construcción de la noción de Patrimonio Arquitectónico en Portugal entre 1825 y 1880, período elegido por corresponder con aquél donde se define y consolida el proyecto de preservación romántico. De este modo, a partir del problema generado por la integración en los Bienes de la Nación de la voluminosa masa de bienes muebles e inmuebles, los «bienes nacionales», que hasta entonces habían estado mayoritariamente en poder de las Ordenes Religiosas y que incluían un elevado porcentaje de aquello que hoy se considera el patrimonio nacional. Se procura no solo comprender la evolución del cuadro patrimonial, sino también la de los discursos sobre el tema, la legislación promulgada y las prácticas efectivas de definición y salvaguardia de ese conjunto de edificios que, en este período, con el desarrollo de la consciencia patrimonial, se transforman en Monumentos Nacionales.This paper deals with the construction of the notion of Architectural Heritage in Portugal between 1825 and 1880, when the romantic «preservation project» was defined and consolidated. Having as a starting point the problem generated by the integration in the property of the Nation of a voluminous mass of properties, the so-called «national properties», that had until then been in the ownership of Religious Orders and include a high percentage of what is today considered our national heritage, we try not only to understand the evolution of the constitution of our architectural heritage, but also the several speeches on the subject, the promulgated legislation and the existing practices of definition and safeguard of this set of buildings that, at this time and due to the development of the consciousness of our heritage, were turned into National Monuments.

    The Bien Hoa airbase (south of Vietnam) is known as one of the Agent Orange hotspots which have been seriously contaminated by Agent Orange/dioxin during the Vietnam War. Hundreds of samples including soil, sediment and fish were collected at the Bien Hoa Agent Orange hotspot for assessment of the environmental contamination caused by dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs). The toxicity equivalency quotient (TEQ) concentration of PCDD/Fs in soil and sediment varied from 7.6 to 962,000 and 17 to 4860 pg/g dry wt, respectively, implying very high contamination of PCDD/Fs in several areas. PCDD/F levels in fish ranged between 1.8 and 288 pg/g TEQ wet wt and was generally higher than advisory guidelines for food consumption. 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (2,3,7,8-TCDD) contributed 66-99 % of TEQ for most of the samples, suggesting 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) from Agent Orange as the major source of the contamination. The vertical transport of PCDD/Fs was observed in soil column with high TEQ levels above 1000 pg/g dry wt (Vietnamese limit for necessary remediation activities- TCVN 8183:2009 (2009)) even at a depth of 1.8 m. The vertical transport of PCDD/Fs has probably mainly taken place during the "Ranch Hand" defoliant spray activities due to the leaks and spills of phenoxy herbicides and solvents. The congener patterns suggest that transports of PCDD/Fs by weathering processes have led to their redistribution in the low-land areas. Also, an estimate for the total volume of contaminated soil requiring remediation to meet Vietnamese regulatory limits is provided.

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available La circulación de los bienes en el tráfico jurídico por la voluntad de los particulares es un tema crucial que interesa, no sólo a las partes del contrato, sino a todos en general, y en particular, a los acreedores del transmitente o del adquirente y a los terceros adquirentes de derechos sobre el bien. En este trabajo se analizará el régimen de trasmisión de los bienes por negocio inter vivos en el Derecho español, dentro del marco europeo, y con particular referencia a la trasmisión inmobiliaria. España adopta un peculiar sistema de trasmisión de lo bienes, porque se establecen reglas genéricas aplicables con independencia de la naturaleza mueble o inmueble del bien; y junto a ellas, se superponen otras que tratan de fijar los efectos de la publicidad registral inmobiliaria. La coordinación entre dichas reglas produce un original resultado, que puede constituir el punto de encuentro de los diversos sistemas registrales europeos.

    Full Text Available En 1995, tras la reforma de los límites diocesanos entre las antiguas sedes episcopales de Lérida y Barbastro, se ponía en marcha un litigio canónico por la propiedad de los bienes artísticos procedentes de las parroquias altoaragonesas que, desde finales del siglo XIX, fueron trasladados al Museo del Seminario ilerdense, después Museo Diocesano. La Nunciatura Apostólica decretó en 1998 que las piezas estaban en Lérida a título de depósito y que la propiedad pertenecía a las parroquias que habían pasado a formar parte de la diócesis de Barbastro-Monzón. El litigio canónico se zanjó en 2007, pero actualmente las piezas protagonizan varias causas en los tribunales civiles, entre las que destacan las abiertas por dos ayuntamientos cuyas parroquias pertenecen, desde 1955, a la diócesis de Huesca. Algunos de los bienes en litigio tienen un notable valor artístico, pero es su valor como símbolo histórico y de identidad, como herencia del esfuerzo y de la devoción de unas comunidades rurales, lo que reclaman los aragoneses. Así mismo, las instituciones catalanas, abogan por la propiedad de unas piezas cuya conservación fue posible gracias a la labor del obispado de Lérida.In 1995 after the reform of the diocesan boundaries between the former Episcopal sees of Lérida and Barbastro a canonical dispute was initiated in order to establish the property of the artistic goods from the High Aragon, which at the end of the 19th century were moved to the Seminary Museum of Lerida, called afterwards Diocesan Museum. The Apostolic Nunciature decreed in 1998 that the pieces were in Lérida in storage and that they belonged to the parishes which had formed part of the diocese Barbastro- Monzón. The canonical dispute ended in 2007, but the pieces are involved presently in several civil court cases, among which are those opened by two councils whose parishes belong since 1955 to the Diocese of Huesca.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo se centra en el tratamiento teórico y desarrollo histórico de la categoría ética de bien común y su presencia, como fundamento, en el pensamiento político de Salvador Cisneros Betancourt, figura notoria y controversial de la historia de Cuba. Este tema, que se revela como continuidad de la tradición ética en que se sostiene el pensamiento cubano desde su momento fundacional, no ha recibido un tratamiento sistemático en la literatura filosófica cubana actual. El análisis de los documentos, en especial los que se inscriben entre 1902 y 1914, permite apreciar que, aunque no la aborde de forma explícita, la concepción del bien común permea el quehacer intelectual de Cisneros en esos años.

    Full Text Available En este artículo estudiamos el desarrollo económico alcanzado por la totalidad de los Estados latinoamericanos y caribeños soberanos en 1913 y 1925 desde una perspectiva inédita en el estudio del conjunto de la región: las importaciones y la producción –que sumadas equivalen al consumo aparente– de bienes de capital. Asegurada la fiabilidad de las estadísticas del comercio exterior, procedemos a reconstruir las magnitudes de los bienes de capital adquiridos por las 20 repúblicas. También estimamos la producción interna. La nueva evidencia empírica pone de manifiesto las enormes diferencias existentes en el seno de la región en el consumo per cápita de bienes de capital al término de la primera oleada globalizadora. La comparación entre los niveles de 1913 y 1925 revela que, en general, la contienda mundial no favoreció el proceso de sustitución de importaciones de la región, pero no en todos los países por igual.

    Full Text Available Colombia acaba de aprobar una nueva constitución. Es la expresión del ideal liberal: así como la apertura económica al aumentar el grado de competencia debe garantizar un suministro adecuado de bienes privados, se espera que una democracia más abierta y participativa que permita un mayor control de los ciudadanos sobre sus asuntos colectivos y asegure un suministro de bienes públicos más racional. Conviene recordar que este ideal se enfrentará a graves dificultades. El bien común no surge automáticamente de las elecciones. Las paradojas a las que estas están sometidas y el teorema de la imposibilidad de Arow, discutidos en este artículo así lo aprueban. La democracia es la expresión de Churchil- “la peor forma de gobierno- con excepción de todas las otras formas conocidas”. No carece entonces de dificultades. Está construida sobre la lógica del conflicto que pretende regular pero que no elimina en absoluto (la guerra civil es siempre una posibilidad virtual.

Résultats : Environ une personne sur trois atteinte d’un trouble de l’humeur ou d’anxiété a fait état d'une AESM positive. Les modèles de régression logistique ont révélé que plusieurs caractéristiques, comme un âge plus avancé, une autoévaluation de la santé générale positive, des limitations fonctionnelles moins nombreuses ainsi que la perception d’un moindre stress à l’égard de la vie, de meilleures capacités d’adaptation et d’un plus grand soutien social, étaient associées à des niveaux de bien-être plus élevés. Les comportements d’autogestion (entamer une activité physique, méditer, adopter de saines habitudes de sommeil et atteindre un certain nombre d’heures de sommeil chaque nuit n’étaient pas significativement associés à des mesures du bien-être dans notre modèle multivarié.

Se elaboró un estudio cualitativo con un enfoque fenomenológico interpretativo, mediante el análisis de 18 narrativas a partir de entrevistas en profundidad realizadas por alumnas del Máster en Ciencias de la Enfermería en diferentes contextos de cuidados. Las categorías identificadas fueron: (1 Cronicidad y concepto de sentirse bien-sentirse mal. En la cronicidad este concepto está íntimamente relacionado con la recuperación de las actividades de la vida diaria y es componente importante en la percepción individual del concepto "calidad de vida". (2 Momentos agudos de enfermedad y concepto de sentirse bien-sentirse mal. En el análisis de los relatos del paciente aparecieron aspectos esenciales del fenómeno "sentirse bien-sentirse mal" para aumentar la comprensión de aspectos universales de algunos de sus componentes. Destacar que el fenómeno está íntimamente relacionado con la recuperación de las actividades de la vida diaria, y es un mediador importante en la percepción individual del concepto "calidad de vida".

    Full Text Available La elección en la reciente reforma contable española del criterio de valor razonable en lugar del coste histórico como base de valoración para determinados activos ha generado cierta controversia. Este trabajo estudia la posible incidencia de la adopción del valor razonable para el registro contable de los bienes inmuebles sobre la relevancia y la fiabilidad de la información financiera. El estudio empírico está basado en una encuesta sobre las percepciones de 151 responsables de la contabilidad de empresas españolas del sector de la construcción sobre la utilidad y fiabilidad de la información financiera basada en el valor razonable. El análisis de los resultados nos ha permitido concluir que, respecto al coste histórico, los responsables de contabilidad perciben que el valor razonable de los bienes inmuebles generaría estados financieros más útiles para representar la imagen fiel del patrimonio de la empresa. No obstante, los encuestados conciben la información financiera bajo valor razonable como menos objetiva y verificable. Asimismo, hemos comprobado que el tamaño de la empresa puede influir en la opinión de la repercusión del valor razonable sobre la relevancia y fiabilidad de los estados financieros.

    Full Text Available La teoría económica se ha dividido claramente en dos grandes narrativas: la economía convencional y la economía no convencional. La primera no solo se caracteriza por su arsenal matemático, sino también por su alta carga ideológica en la perspectiva del liberalismo económico. La segunda es una teoría en construcción, con sendos avances metodológicos y estudios de campo, pero aún se encuentra profundamente cuestionada por la epistemología positivista. Este ensayo pretende abreviar los temas más críticos de aquellas dos teorías económicas, con especial énfasis en los instrumentos analíticos de la economía convencional para valorar bienes ambientales (economía ambiental, y mostrar resumidamente los supuestos teóricos y fortalezas de la economía no convencional (bioeconomía en materia de valoración de bienes ambientales. Finalmente, se propone un modelo de interpretación del mercado que reestructura la noción de Valor Económico Total de la economía ambiental, en una perspectiva bioeconómica.

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available En el contexto de una planificación que declara privilegiar los elementos de la estructura ecológica, pero que podría comprometer la provisión de suelos para soportar coberturas que ofrezcan bienes y servicios ecosistémicos, se presenta un aporte a la discusión sobre cómo lograr un balance entre densificación y provisión de estos bienes y servicios, mediante la reconstrucción de la transformación de la cobertura de un segmento de la cuenca del río Fucha en Bogotá en un lapso de 77 años y la verificación de las relaciones de dicha transformación con los instrumentos de planificación y gestión. Los resultados obtenidos sugieren una regulación reactiva, con limitaciones para conducir la ocupación del territorio, de la que se puede esperar una acentuación de la aridez. Estos resultados sustentan las conclusiones sobre la necesidad de replantear la regulación sobre áreas consolidadas e introducir instrumentos de gestión de la cobertura.

    Full Text Available Resumo El objetivo del artículo es estudiar, a través de la actividad de quienes ocupan cargos políticos, las prácticas concretas que intervienen en la producción del “bien público”, entendido como la distribución de los bienes públicos hacia los ciudadanos. El interés surge de la tensión entre el comportamiento ideal de los políticos –según reglas universales y públicamente orientadas- y una práctica concreta que implica tener en cuenta problemáticas de ciudadanos y grupos sociales determinados, así como los propios intereses políticos. Se cuestiona la relación entre impersonalidad e interés público, planteando que la distribución personalizada de los bienes públicos no supone necesariamente su apropiación privada. Se presenta el estudio empírico de la actividad cotidiana de diferentes políticos con distintos cargos electivos, pertenecientes al partido gobernante, en la provincia de Santiago del Estero, cuyo régimen político ha sido caracterizado por la importancia de las relaciones personales y la politización de la burocracia. Siguiendo una estrategia metodológica cualitativa- que recurre a las técnicas de las entrevistas en profundidad y a la observación no participante; se reconstruye su actividad política cotidiana y las nociones de los políticos sobre sus propias prácticas; prestando atención a las formas de vinculación con los ciudadanos y con otros políticos y funcionarios. El artículo muestra que las tareas de los políticos provinciales, involucran el contacto personalizado tanto con los ciudadanos, como con funcionarios de distintos niveles de la administración pública, que les permiten viabilizar la distribución de bienes públicos hacia sus representados; actividades principalmente de carácter informal. Se muestra que, aunque los objetos de sus acciones sean ciudadanos y grupos territoriales determinados –lejos de la ciudadanía concebida en forma abstracta-, ello no es

Paraello, enprimer plano,este estudio trata de la política criminal relativa a la libre planificación familiar, criticando la intervención estatal en cuestiones familiares, como ocurre en el Código Penal de 1940, destacando la necesidad de respetarse los principios de intervención mínima y de proporcionalidad antes de que el legislador se valga de la injerencia penal para la protección de cualquier bien jurídico. Más adelante, se presenta la importancia del bien jurídico-penal, con énfasis en la familia como bien jurídico categorial, especialmente la guardia, tutela y curatela, supuestamente lesionadas por los delitos de los artículos 248 y 249 del Código Penal. Así, se analizan brevemente los tipos penales citados, criticándose dicha criminalización, teniéndose en cuenta que tales tipos son subsidiarios, perfectamente prescindibles en el ordenamiento jurídico-penal y pasibles de salvaguardia por el Derecho Civil, que en la solución de los conflictos familiares se muestra mucho más eficaz que la intervención penal.

    Full Text Available Public goods having different proprieties produce different problems of collective action. This hypothesis has been discussed from different analytical perspectives and we examine their arguments, aiming to deepen our theoretical understanding about the logic of collective action. In this paper we look for similarities and differences regarding their use of concepts and expected results. Simultaneously, we examine the link between different public goods and the interdependent behavior of individuals. To this purpose, we also revisit the connections between production functions and consumption types in the case of public goods, as a mean to explore the potential development of more elaborated models in the theory of collective action, and suggest that more empirical contrast of these models is needed. Finally, we argue the importance for theoretical discussions to include a discussion about the impact of perception in the collective action models, considering systematic deviations to rational choice, and conclude that no single theory may address all collective action problems, but systematic patterns of behavior may be identified and empirically confirmed.

    Bienes públicos con distintas propiedades generan problemas diferentes de acción colectiva. Esta hipótesis ha sido discutida, desde distintas perspectivas analíticas, con el objeto de profundizar teóricamente sobre la lógica de la acción colectiva. En este trabajo se revisan las aportaciones recientes a esta cuestión, analizando sus puntos de encuentro y sus divergencias en cuanto a conceptos y resultados esperados. Asimismo, se examina la relación entre tipos distintos de bienes públicos y el comportamiento interdependiente de los individuos. Con este fin, los vínculos entre las funciones de producción y las formas de consumo de bienes públicos también son considerados, ya que permite desarrollar modelos más ambiciosos sobre la lógica de la acción colectiva.

Resultados: Se presentaron 185 iniciativas parlamentarias sobre los acuerdos multilaterales de bienes y servicios, de las que 120 se referían al GATT, 8 al AGCS y 57 a ambos acuerdos. La mayoría de las iniciativas no fueron discutidas (GATT, 71%; GATS, 55,4% o estuvieron sujetas a un debate político en el que apenas se dieron intervenciones por parte de los grupos parlamentarios. Conclusiones: A pesar de las implicaciones del acuerdo multilateral de servicios para la política sanitaria española, éste se ha asumido con escaso debate parlamentario previo, incluso menos que en el caso de su homólogo sobre bienes.

    Full Text Available La Directiva 2004/113/CE, y la Ley Orgánica 3/2007 que la traspone representan un avance en el Derecho antidiscriminatorio por razón de género y en concreto al suministro de bienes y servicios. En este trabajo nos centramos en el acceso a los ofertados desde el sector privado de la economía. Apuntamos a la deficiente incorporación en España de algunas disposiciones de la Directiva; a la necesidad de superar el recurso a la nulidad como principal solución de controversias; así como a la conveniencia de que la regulación antidiscriminatoria de derecho privado reciba un tratamiento legislativo transversal, para así hacer eficaz el derecho a la igualdad y el propio derecho del mercado en áreas tan relevantes como la competencia desleal.

Rehusar a cubrir tareas civiles será aceptado mediante el pago de una multa por el candidato a emigrar. De ahí la existencia de esta instancia comunitaria en la regulación de la migración. El retorno pasa por la calificación comunitaria, además de que las iniciativas de los retornados se ven limitadas. Todo lo anterior ocurre en comunidades, en donde la membresía a una comunidad entraña un lazo de identificación cultural.

Se usó la metodología de investigación-acción-participación respondiendo al objetivo de crear estrategias para contrarrestar los problemas de agotamiento del recurso pesquero de los lagos de Tarapoto en el resguardo Ticoya y consolidar estrategias propias para fortalecer la capacidad de gobernanza interna del recurso pesquero dentro del territorio indígena. Se encontró que los acuerdos de pesca actúan como instituciones que regulan y optimizan el uso de bienes comunes de libre acceso, y consolidan la capacidad de gobernanza en territorios indígenas. Se concluye que la consolidación de un sistema propio de gestión debe ir más allá del control del recurso, evidenciando los esfuerzos locales por adoptar sistemas de manejo alternativo que se integren al modo de vida indígena y a los modelos de producción tradicional.

    Full Text Available En 1981, hace veinticinco años, la zona central de Gáldar fue declarada “Conjunto Histórico Artístico” con la denominación de Plaza de Santiago. Sin embargo no era el primer bien cultural que obtenía una distinción de este tipo, ya que Gáldar había sido pionera en 1949 con el yacimiento de El Agujero y La Guancha, primero de los de carácter arqueológico declarado en Canarias, al que seguiría en 1972 la Cueva Pintada. Hasta la década de los setenta prevalecieron los bienes arqueológicos, situación que se modificó en las dos últimas décadas del siglo XX después del reconocimiento de la Plaza de Santiago y su entorno. Junto con edificaciones religiosas también se incluyeron ejemplos de arquitectura doméstica, completándose con algunos yacimientos prehispánicos. Una particular circunstancia fue la declaración en 1993 del pago de Barranco Hondo de Abajo, lo que convertía a Gáldar en el primer municipio de Canarias que contaba con dos conjuntos históricos, siendo éste a la vez el primero de la comunidad autonóma con características rurales. De la relación de los declarados, si exceptuamos la mayoría de los de carácter arqueológico, buena parte son urbanos. Una característica es que se incluyen categorías variadas, incluyendo la existencia de una zona arqueológica junto a un conjunto histórico y varios monumentos (de arquitectura religiosa y doméstica. Este hecho es lógico si se tiene en cuenta la particularidad de Gáldar y su condición de núcleo histórico de superposición.Twenty five years ago, in 1981, the central zone of Galdar was declared an "Historic Artistic Site" with the name of Plaza de Santiago. But this was not the first cultural asset to obtain a distinction of this kind, as Galdar pioneered protection of this kind with the El Agujero and La Guancha site, the first archaeological site declared in the Canary Islands, followed by La Cueva Pintada, in 1972.

    Full Text Available Éste documento tiene como objetivo caracterizar los hogares rurales y urbanos del departamento del Cauca, Colombia y clasificarlos según la tipología y el ciclo de vida del hogar, para establecer su relación con los niveles de gasto mínimo en bienes básicos, es decir, con los que definen los umbrales críticos de pobreza. Para tal efecto, se utiliza la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida de 2011 y se estiman modelos de análisis de varianza multifactoriales. Los resultados muestran, entre otros, que el tipo de hogar más frecuente, tanto en el área rural como la urbana, es el nuclear con hijos y los gastos mínimos básicos, en general, son en alimentos, vivienda y salud. Los rubros de educación y transporte presentan niveles más altos de consumo en los hogares urbanos que en los rurales. The main objective of this paper is to describe the rural and urban households of the Cauca department in Colombia. The idea is to classify the households according to their typology and household life cycle in order to establish their relation with the minimum levels of expenditure on basic goods, this means with the ones that define the critical poverty thresholds. For this end, the 2011 Quality of Life survey is used as well as multifactorial variance analysis. The results show that the most common type of household for both rural and urban areas is the nuclear type of household with children, showing usually a minimal basic expenditure on food, housing and health. Education and transportation present higher consump-tion levels at urban households.

La investigación realizada adopta un enfoque teórico-metodológico de corte estructuralista-constructivista, abordando el orden social como un sistema simbólico organizado según una lógica de la diferencia y partiendo de la premisa de que prácticas y representaciones están orientadas externamente por las estructuras objetivas de la sociedad, e internamente por esquemas de percepción, pensamiento y acción de origen social. Al tratarse de un trabajo de antropología histórica, los informantes fueron sustituidos por fuentes documentales ubicadas en diferentes archivos venezolanos. Se encuentra que las representaciones culturales del honor femenino en la sociedad en cuestión asociaban este concepto con la castidad sexual, reproduciendo esquemas culturales vigentes en la órbita del mundo occidental y proporcionando una lógica para el mantenimiento de relaciones desiguales de género y poder en la vida pública y privada de los marabinos. El capital social y el capital simbólico habrían sido componentes fundamentales del capital total de que se disponía entonces en la lucha cotidiana por la obtención de recursos y por el reconocimiento social, en una economía de bienes simbólicos que atribuía al parecer preferentemente a los hombres el trabajo oficial de conservación o incremento de dichas formas de capital.

    Full Text Available Indonesian development policy which tends to focus on the growth model has implied on the high concentration of city development. Cities, in fact, fially become spaces where city dwellers and city new comers tightly complete each other to grab the available capital. The qualifid new comers who possess good competence are able to survive in the city. Those people will be able to enjoy the delicious economic cakes which are abundantly scattered. However, the incompetent new comers may only taste the remnants of the economic cake. That is the most rational choice for the incompetent. According to Max Weber, this phenomenon shows an instrumental social action. It means that the measurement ofprofi and loss has been the most important part of their actions. Indeed, most of the new comers do not have special competence. They only depend on their physical strength in order to survive. In Karl Marx’s terminology, an individual who does not possess an ability to control the production factors (for example: natural resources, human resources, capital will only depend on their body (physical strength in order to survive. Therefore the informal sectors become the most rational choice. Hence street vendors, construction workers, parking attendants and other informal jobs have been the common views in the cities. This paper is trying to portray one of the informal sectors in the cities namely street vendors. Their survival strategy in the competitive city life is a point of view which is being explained and focused in this paper.

    Full-text: International and regional cooperation is fundamental for the safe and effective introduction and expansion of nuclear power programme (NPP). A win-win situation can be harnessed as experienced countries in NPP are able to offer a myriad of benefits to new comer countries as well as countries planning for NPP whilst new comer countries are able to offer education and training opportunities and business opportunities to advanced countries in NPP. Countries with long experience in nuclear power programme (NPP) are able to offer experience, knowledge, advisory as well as sharing of resources and facilities with new comer countries. As skilled and competent personnel in the entire nuclear value-chain are critical to support NPP, this paper will provide an overview of some of the experience and resources of advanced countries in NPP that could be shared with new comer countries, with a focus in the area of education and training, as well as in industrial development. The paper will conclude by offering some recommendations as a way forward for establishing international cooperation in Nuclear Education and Training, as well as for industrial development.

  11. Reactor water spontaneous circulation structure in reactor pressure vessel

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Takahashi, Kazumi

    1998-01-01

    The gap between the inner wall of a reactor pressure vessel of a BWR type reactor and a reactor core shroud forms a down comer in which reactor water flows downwardly. A feedwater jacket to which feedwater at low temperature is supplied is disposed at the outer circumference of the pressure vessel just below a gas/water separator. The reactor water at the outer circumferential portion just below the air/water separator is cooled by the feedwater jacket, and the feedwater after cooling is supplied to the feedwater entrance disposed below the feedwater jacket by way of a feedwater introduction line to supply the feedwater to the lower portion of the down comer. This can cool the reactor water in the down comer to increase the reactor water density in the down comer thereby forming strong downward flows and promote the recycling of the reactor water as a whole. With such procedures, the reactor water can be recycled stably only by the difference of the specific gravity of the reactor water without using an internal pump. In addition, the increase of the height of the pressure vessel can be suppressed. (I.N.)

Ils en interrogent l’éducabilité alors que cette notion est prise en compte dans les curricula de l’enseignement agricole. Envisageant son enseignement au travers d’une éducation à l’empathie interspécifique, nous questionnons les facteurs susceptibles de l’influencer. Nous nous fondons sur le discours de sept élèves en baccalauréat professionnel relevant de l’élevage d’animaux de production ou d’animaux de compagnie durant deux années de formation. Six élèves, quelle que soit leur filière de formation, souhaitent créer une relation affective sans nécessairement développer une attitude empathique durant la formation. Parmi les facteurs responsables, nous distinguons (1 un manque de confiance en soi de l’élève, (2 des motivations égocentrées primant sur des motivations zoocentrées, (3 la loyauté et les habitudes acquises à l’égard des pratiques parentales, (4 la conformation aux pratiques et idéologies dominantes du monde professionnel, (5 des facteurs associés aux situations d’enseignement (savoirs et pratiques de référence qui font autorité, valeurs de conformité primant sur des valeurs éthiques, dissociation de la dimension relationnelle et productive de l’élevage, jugements négatifs portés par l’enseignant et les élèves originaires du monde agricole. Ces facteurs généreraient des mécanismes de défense chez l’élève nuisibles au développement d’un raisonnement affectivo-éthique critique.

    Full Text Available Este artículo propone que si bien parece haber una unanimidad en el diagnóstico biomédico de la obesidad, éste es insuficiente o no lo bastante preciso, ya que se debe profundizar sobre las consecuencias de los distintos modos de vida en las maneras de comer, y de éstas en la salud de la población. Asimismo, tratamos de reflexionar sobre cómo la ideación biomédica de la obesidad contribuye a convertir el peso corporal y la comida en lo que desde una acepción bastante reduccionista y discutible se define como un "problema social". Por último nos planteamos la estandarización de las estrategias internacionales frente a la obesidad, vinculadas con su calificación como epidemia global, para reflexionar sobre los efectos de manejar una visión limitada de la cultura y la alimentación. Las ideas articuladas en este trabajo forman parte de la fase de problematización teórica del objeto, previas a la puesta en marcha del proyecto de investigación.

Estos resultados se relacionan con la ausencia de la conceptualización en el currículo español. Los servicios “directos” de los ecosistemas fueron tratados con mayor frecuencia que los “indirectos”.

Tras la intervención se eliminó la respuesta condicionada de vómito, se redujo notablemente el número de pensamientos negativos antes, durante y después de las situaciones problema, y se produjo un incremento significativo en actividades de ocio e interacciones sociales (bien que pudieran dar lugar a comidas/cenas, bien a situaciones de intimidad con mujeres y a un mayor disfrute de éstas.

    Full Text Available Desde que fue descrito por primera vez por Andreas Rett hace 50 años, el síndrome de Rett (SR ha sido objeto de muchas investigaciones, sin embargo continúa siendo un trastorno aún no bien conocido. Presentamos nuestra propia experiencia y una revisión de la literatura sobre el SR. Se trata de un trastorno del neurodesarrollo, dominante ligado a X, que afecta casi siempre a mujeres, la mayoría de los casos de forma esporádica. El diagnóstico de SR debe hacerse en base a la observación clínica. Las principales características son la aparición de un retraso mental, cambios conductuales, estereotipias, pérdida del lenguaje y, sobre todo, del uso propositivo de las manos, aparición de una apraxia de la marcha, presencia de alteraciones de la respiración y, frecuentemente, crisis epilépticas. Los criterios diagnósticos consensuados internacionalmente son aquí revisados. El SR se debe en la mayoría de casos a mutaciones del gen MECP2, si bien una proporción de casos atípicos puede estar causada por mutaciones de CDKL5, particularmente la variante con epilepsia precoz. Sin embargo, los mecanismos patogénicos moleculares no son bien conocidos, así como la relación entre las mutaciones de MECP2 y otros trastornos del desarrollo. Revisamos también los hallazgos de neuroimagen, neuropatológicos y neurobioquímicos descritos en el SR. Respecto al tratamiento, aparte del sintomático, no hay ninguno que se haya mostrado eficaz. Un trabajo reciente abre perspectivas terapéuticas futuras al haber demostrado mediante un modelo animal de ratón la reversión de los síntomas neurológicos mediante la activación de la expresión de MeCP2.Since it was first described by Andrea Rett 50 years ago, Rett syndrome (RS has been the subject of further investigations, nonetheless it continues to be a not well known condition.

    SWAT (SMART ECC Water Asymmetric Two-phase choking test facility) was designed by 1/5 scaling ratio using the modified linear scaling method. The design characteristics of the SMART such that the elevation of RCP suction nozzles is the same with that of the ECC injection nozzles are maintained to reduce a distortion caused by the gravitational effect. Thermal hydraulic phenomena in a test facility designed by the modified linear scaling method can be simulated more accurately than those by the full-height and reduced area scaling method. The main part of the test section is SG-side upper down-comer. The boundary conditions are saturated steam and water flow condition and drain flow rate to control the collapsed water level in the down-comer. The test data of the SWAT can produce the well-defined boundary condition to validate the thermal hydraulic analysis code for the SMART

    One of the most important issues for a new comer country initializing the nuclear power plant projects is to have both quantitative and qualitative models for the human resources development. For the quantitative model of human resources development for Turkey, “Nuclear Power Human Resources (NPHR) Model” developed by the Los Alamos National Laboratory was used to determine the number of people that will be required from different professional or occupational fields in the planning of human resources for Akkuyu, Sinop and the third nuclear power plant projects. The number of people required for different professions for the Nuclear Energy Project Implementation Department, the regulatory authority, project companies, construction, nuclear power plants and the academy were calculated. In this study, a sample application of the human resources model is presented. The results of the first tries to calculate the human resources needs of Turkey were obtained.

    The authors question the 4 main concerns that have arisen since the implementation of emission trade markets 3 years ago. First, the allowance policy was not accurate enough and has led to a surplus offer of CO 2 allowances. Secondly, the impact on electricity prices of carbon emission costs was all the higher as it happened at the moment of the deregulation of electricity markets. Thirdly, the CO 2 allowances whose price will near 14 euros a ton for the 2008-2012 period are accused of hindering the competitiveness of the European industrial sector. Fourth, the present allowance system that gives to new comers free CO 2 allowances is not very conducive to the adoption by these new comers of technologies that are less CO 2 emitting. Some ways of improvement are given. (A.C.)

Pasado un plazo determinado, las obras protegidas entran en lo que se denomina dominio público. Éste suele ser considerado como el momento en el que los bienes culturales pasan a estar bajo el dominio y control de la sociedad en conjunto. El presente trabajo pretende argumentar que, dado nuestro actual sistema económico, en realidad el dominio público funciona más como una posibilidad de negocio para determinadas empresas que como una verdadera opción para que el público pueda acceder a las obras.   Abstract: The legislation of continental intellectual property and copyright provide for a period of protection granting exclusive and temporary economic rights.

    Research highlights: ► Performing of dryout experiments with a polydispersed bed for top- and bottom-flooding. ► Study of influence of different down comer configurations on the coolability of debris bed. ► Measurement of temperature profiles, pressure drops and determination of dryout heat flux. ► Observation of noticeable increase in coolability of debris bed with the use of down comer is observed. - Abstract: Within the reactor safety research, the removal of decay heat from a debris bed (formed from corium and residual water) is of great importance. In order to investigate experimentally the long term coolability of debris beds, the scaled test facility “DEBRIS” (Fig. 1) has been built at IKE. A large number of experiments had been carried out to investigate the coolability limits for different bed configurations (). Analyses based on one-dimensional configurations underestimate the coolability in realistic multidimensional configurations, where lateral water access and water inflow via bottom regions are favoured. Following the experiments with top- and bottom-flooding flow conditions this paper presents experimental results of boiling and dryout tests at different system pressures based on top- and bottom-flooding via a down comer configuration. A down comer with an internal diameter of 10 mm has been installed at the centre of the debris bed. The debris bed is built up in a cylindrical crucible with an inner diameter of 125 mm. The bed of height 640 mm is composed of polydispersed particles with particle diameters 2, 3 and 6 mm. Since the long term coolability of such particle bed is limited by the availability of coolant inside the bed and not by heat transfer limitations from the particles to the coolant, the bottom inflow of water improves the coolability of the debris bed and an increase of the dryout heat flux can be observed. With increasing system pressure, the coolability limits are enhanced (increased dryout heat flux).

Notre étude vise à explorer les effets de nouvelles politiques managériales sur le bien-être émotionnel des salariés. Plus précisément, nous explorons les politiques mises en œuvre par un des sites du Groupe Essilor dans le contexte d’un changement organisationnel. Nous analysons d’un point de vue quantitatif et qualitatif les effets induits par ces politiques sur les salariés et sur la façon dont Essilor-Dijon en tient compte dans sa gestion des collaborateurs pour améliorer le bien-être au travail. À la lumière de nos résultats, il apparaît que les émotions sont au cœur de la conduite du changement, pouvant jouer le rôle de freins ou de leviers en fonction des choix managériaux.Nowadays, companies are implementing organizational change in order to be able to adapt to an increasingly competitive environment. Because of this context, firms are often confronted with problems linked to stressful situations that they themselves have brought about. We explored the policies which were applied by one of the branches of the Essilor Group in an organizational change context. First, we quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed the effects which this policy has had on stress-related issues. Second, we looked at how Essilor-Dijon took into account these effects in managing its staff so as to improve their well-being at work. Our results show that emotions appear to be at the heart of managing change and can either be obstacles or facilitators, depending on the choices made by management.Hoy en día, la mayoría de las empresas están llevando a cabo proyectos de cambio organizacional con el objetivo de adaptarse a las

    A scaling study on the steady state natural circulation flow along the flow path of the ex-vessel core catcher cooling system of 1400MWe PWR is described. The scaling criteria for reproducing the same thermalhydraulic characteristics of the natural circulation flow as the prototype core catcher cooling system in the scale-down test facility is derived and the resulting natural circulation flow characteristics of the prototype and scale-down facility analyzed and compared. The purpose of this study is to apply the similarity law to the prototype EU-APR1400 core catcher cooling system and the model test facility of this prototype system and derive a relationship between the heating channel characteristics and the down-comer piping characteristics so as to determine the down-comer pipe size and the orifice size of the model test facility. As the geometry and the heating wall heat flux of the heating channel of the model test facility will be the same as those of the prototype core catcher cooling system except the width of the heating channel is reduced, the axial distribution of the coolant quality (or void fraction) is expected to resemble each other between the prototype and model facility. Thus using this fact, the down-comer piping design characteristics of the model facility can be determined from the relationship derived from the similarity law

    Full Text Available ResumenÚltimamente hay una conciencia global sobre que la noción de desarrollo está pasando por serios procesos de crítica y reconstrucción, por las connotaciones evolucionistas y eurocéntricas predominantes en sus principales formulaciones, pensadas de cara a la construcción y ampliación de estados nacionales y de un proyecto económico y cultural dirigido a una progresiva modernización capitalista homogénea que busca la creciente satisfacción material e individual, fundada en formas que han amenazado con subordinar y transformar otros principios, culturas y conocimientos a su imagen y semejanza. Es en este marco, que el Vivir Bien, propuesta por los Pueblos Indígenas viene a sumarse a las distintas propuestas que han ido saliendo en cuanto a desarrollo se refiere. Esta propuesta comprendida por ellos como una traducción de las formas y estilos de vida, en su simplicidad muestra una compleja articulación entre la vida de los indígenas, sus recursos naturales y el vínculo estrecho entre ambos, dentro de un territorio.AbstractIn recent times there is a global awareness of the fact that the notion of development is going through a process of criticism and reconstruction, due to the evolutionary and Eurocentric connotations in its formulation, which is oriented to the construction and expansion of nation-states and an economic and cultural project led to a progressive and homogeneous capitalist modernization, aimed at increasing individual and material satisfaction. Those forms have threatened to subordinate and transform other principles, culture and knowledge. In this context we find the proposal of the indigenous peoples of Living Well. This proposal, understood by them as a translation of forms and lifestyles, shows in its simplicity, a complex articulation between the life of indigenous, their natural resources and the close link between them within a territory.

    Full Text Available Resumen: Este artículo expone algunos antecedentes que explican por qué se ha introducido la expresión Vivir Bien (Suma Qamaña y sus variantes en el texto constitucional recientemente aprobado en Bolivia. Entre ellos menciona los sorprendentes resultados electorales obtenidos por Evo Morales, que se sustentan en la emergencia y consolidación del pensamiento indígena, en la clara voluntad de adquirir poder político por parte de las organizaciones indígenas y en la necesidad de cambiar el ordenamiento jurídico existente, empezando por la Constitución. Identifica igualmente algunos elementos que caracterizan la resistencia a estos esfuerzos en el ámbito de las tierras bajas. A la pregunta de por qué era necesario cambiar la Constitución, responde que la anterior pretendía la integración de los indígenas despojándoles de su identidad. Por el contrario, la actual se caracteriza por una marcada impronta indígena al tratar los principios, valores y fines del Estado. Es allí donde aparece la expresión Suma Qamaña y otras equivalentes en otras tantas lenguas indígenas, que es necesario leer como el Ethos que inspira a la nueva Constitución y que debe guiar en la construcción del nuevo Estado.Abstract: This article presents some background explaining why the term Living Well (Suma Qamaña and it variants has been introduced in the recently approved Constitution in Bolivia.

    The fate of the inhabitants of Macael has been closely linked to the production of marble from time immemorial. The scope of these resources transcended local borders during the latter part of last century; thus, in the last few years, the marble extracted from the surroundings of Macael accounted for over 40% of the national production, with Spain being one of the leading world producers of this ornamental rock. This paper analyzes the changes that have taken place in the quarry access system since 1573, when the town of Macael was surveyed, up to the present time. After many historical changes in which the people of Macael have had to fight for ownership of the quarries, both against private interests and public administration, the assets which were communal, and therefore freely accessible to the locals, became the property of the Local Council, which at present also holds the exploitation concession of the marble resources and the power to grant leases to entrepreneurs wishing to extract this mineral. [Spanish] La suerte de los habitantes de Macael ha estado unida al mármol desde tiempo inmemorial. El alcance del recurso desborda las fronteras locales: durante los últimos años del pasado siglo en el entorno de Macael se extraía más del 40% del mármol nacional, siendo España uno de los líderes mundiales del mercado de esta piedra ornamental. Este artículo analiza los cambios que se han producido en el sistema de acceso a las canteras desde 1573, año en el que se realizó el apeo de la villa de Macael, hasta la actualidad. Tras no pocas vicisitudes, en las que el pueblo de Macael ha tenido que defender la propiedad sobre las canteras, tanto frente a intereses particulares como de la administración pública, los bienes que eran comunales, y por ello de libre acceso para los lugareños, pasaron a ser propiedad del Ayuntamiento, que en la actualidad es también titular de la concesión de explotación del mármol, y la arrienda a los empresarios que

    Full Text Available In his book, The Way We Eat, Peter Singer attempts to raise awareness about food ethics and the hidden costs of the average first-world diet to the environment and the world’s poor. Based on a critical analysis of the food industry, he presents the concientious reader with three proposals: local food, fair trade, and vegetarianism. Despite the likely environmental benefits of the buy local movement, other ways to protect the environment that do not hinder the economic development of the poorest countries are ethically preferable. In Section III, I argue from a utilitarian framework that we can do the most long-term good if we contribute now to third world development. Thus, our most urgent responsibility is to promote fair trade.

    En su libro The Way We Eat, Peter Singer pretende concienciarnos sobre la ética del comer y los gastos ocultos, para el medioambiente y para los más pobres, de la dieta típica del primer mundo. A partir del análisis crítico de la industria alimentaria, presenta tres propuestas para el lector concienciado: el consumo local, el comercio justo y el vegetarianismo. A pesar de los beneficios ecológicos del consumo local, otras vías para proteger el medioambiente que no impiden el desarrollo económico de los países más pobres son éticamente preferibles. En la III sección arguyo desde un marco utilitarista que podemos hacer el mayor bien a largo plazo si contribuimos ahora al desarrollo del tercer mundo. Por tanto, nuestra responsabilidad más urgente es la de promover el comercio justo.

    Full Text Available À la fin de l’Ancien Régime, les villes des Pays-Bas gardaient les traits de villes médiévales sans ordre et faites d’entrelacs de rues et de ruelles. Le caractère corporatif de la production limitait la présence de grands ensembles industriels et les couvents et leurs jardins occupaient une grande partie de la superficie intra et extra muros des cités. Par ailleurs, l’Église était propriétaire d’un important parc immobilier de petites demeures adossées à des églises jusqu’aux importants refuges d’abbayes dominant dans les campagnes de vastes espaces fonciers. Durant la deuxième moitié du xviiie, les autorités habsbourgeoises menèrent une politique tendant à moderniser les villes en faisant, en autres, tomber les enceintes et en donnant une nouvelle affectation aux couvents contemplatifs supprimés. La Révolution française bouleversa ces ensembles urbains en libérant d’un coup une masse très importante de biens immobiliers qui appartenait à l’Église et en modifiant radicalement les modes de production par la suppression des corporations de métiers. La bourgeoisie principalement négociante réussi habilement tirer tous les profits de cette nouvelle donne. Cet effet d’aubaine contribua grandement à faire passer nos régions dans un nouveau stade de leur démarrage industriel.At the end of the Ancien Régime, the towns of the Netherlands retained the characteristics of medieval towns, without any order and consisting of warrens of streets and alleys.

  11. Visual attention based detection of signs of anthropogenic activities in satellite imagery

    2010-10-13

    With increasing deployment of satellite imaging systems, only a small fraction of collected data can be subject to expert scrutiny. We present and evaluate a two-tier approach to broad area search for signs of anthropogenic activities in high-resolution commercial satellite imagery. The method filters image information using semantically oriented interest points by combining Harris corner detection and spatial pyramid matching. The idea is that anthropogenic structures, such as rooftop outlines, fence corners, road junctions, are locally arranged in specific angular relations to each other. They are often oriented at approximately right angles to each other (which is known as rectilinearity relation). Detecting the rectilinearity provides an opportunity to highlight regions most likely to contain anthropogenic activity. This is followed by supervised classification of regions surrounding the detected corner points as man-made vs. natural scenes. We consider, in particular, a search for anthropogenic activities in uncluttered areas. In this paper, we proposed and evaluated a two-tier approach to broad area search for signs of anthropogenic activities. Results from experiments on high-resolution ({approx}0.6m) commercial satellite image data showed the potential applicability of this approach and its ability of achieving both high precision and recall rates. The main advantage of combining corner-based cueing with general object recognition is that the incorporation of domain specific knowledge even in its more general form, such as presence of comers, provides a useful cue to narrow the focus of search for signs of anthropogenic activities. Combination of comer based cueing with spatial pyramid matching addressed the issue of comer categorization. An important practical issue for further research is optimizing the balance between false positive and false negative rates. While the results presented in the paper are encouraging, the problem of an automated broad area

    The APS Survey and Alignment team uses LEICA laser trackers for the majority of their alignment tasks. These instruments utilize several different retro-reflectors for tracking the path of the laser interferometer. Currently in use are open-air comer cubes with an acceptance angle of ±20 deg C, comer cube prisms with an acceptance angle of ±50 deg C, and a Cat's eye with an acceptance angle of ±60 deg C. Best measurement results can be achieved by using an open-air comer cube that eliminates the need for the laser beam to travel through a different medium before it returns to the instrument detector. However, the trade off is a small acceptance angle. In order to overcome the limitations of the small acceptance angles, Takatsuji et al. have proposed the creation of a full-viewing-angle retro-reflector. Based on the notion that the radius R 1 of a common Cat's eye is proportional to R 2 , one can write: R 1 = (n-1)R 2 In the case that n, the refractive index of glass, equals 2, the radii R 1 and R 2 are identical, and one can create a solid sphere Cat's eye. This design has the advantages that no adhesives are used to bond the two hemispheres together, misalignments between the hemispheres are not an issue, and most importantly, larger acceptance angles are possible. This paper shows the results of our ray tracing calculations characterizing the geometrical optics. In Section 2 we derived the analytical expressions for choosing the index of refraction n of a glass sphere based on the specifications of the reflected beam. We also provided an approximation for calculating the minimum radius of a reflector sphere based on efficiency considerations. Finally, in section 3, the analytically derived results were confirmed in a design study for a Cat's eye. (authors)

In several species, multiple forms of P5C reductase have been reported, possibly reflecting the dual function of proline. Aside from its common role as a building block of proteins, proline is indeed also involved in the cellular response to osmotic and oxidative stress conditions. Genome analysis of Bacillus subtilis identifies the presence of four genes (ProH, ProI, ProG, and ComER that, based on bioinformatic and phylogenic studies, were defined as respectively coding a putative P5C reductase. Here we describe the cloning, heterologous expression, functional analysis and small-angle X-ray scattering studies of the four affinity-purified proteins. Results showed that two of them, namely ProI and ComER, lost their catalytic efficiency or underwent subfunctionalization. In the case of ComER, this could be likely explained by the loss of the ability to form a dimer, which has been previously shown to be an essential structural feature of the catalytically active P5C reductase. The properties of the two active enzymes are consistent with a constitutive role for ProG, and suggest that ProH expression may be beneficial to satisfy an increased need for proline.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: In evaluation of the clinical benefit of a new targeted agent in a phase 3 trial enrolling molecularly selected patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC, overall survival (OS as an endpoint seems to be of limited use because of a high level of treatment crossover for ethical reasons. A more efficient and useful indicator for assessing efficacy is needed. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We identified 18 phase 3 trials in the literature investigating EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKIs or ALK-TKIs, now approved for use to treat NSCLC, compared with standard cytotoxic chemotherapy (eight trials were performed in molecularly selected patients and ten using an "all-comer" design. Receiver operating characteristic analysis was used to identify the best threshold by which to divide the groups. Although trials enrolling molecularly selected patients and all-comer trials had similar OS-hazard ratios (OS-HRs (0.99 vs. 1.04, the former exhibited greater progression-free survival-hazard ratios (PFS-HR (mean, 0.40 vs. 1.01; P<0.01. A PFS-HR of 0.60 successfully distinguished between the two types of trials (sensitivity 100%, specificity 100%. The odds ratio for overall response was higher in trials with molecularly selected patients than in all-comer trials (mean: 6.10 vs. 1.64; P<0.01. An odds ratio of 3.40 for response afforded a sensitivity of 88% and a specificity of 90%. CONCLUSION: The notably enhanced PFS benefit was quite specific to trials with molecularly selected patients. A PFS-HR cutoff of ∼0.6 may help detect clinical benefit of molecular targeted agents in which OS is of limited use, although desired threshold might differ in an individual trial.

  20. Performance of the primary containment of a BWR during a severe accident whit the code RELAP/SCDAPSIM

    2015-01-01

    In this thesis work, it was developed a model of the vacuum breaker valves and down comers for a BWR Mark II primary containment for the code RELAP/SCDAPSIM Mod. 3.4. This code was used to simulate a Station Blackout (Sbo) that evolves to a severe accident scenario. To accomplish this task, the vacuum breaker valves and down comers were included in a simplified model of the primary containment that includes both wet well and dry well, which was coupled with a model of the Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS), in order to study the behavior of the primary containment during the evolution of the accident scenario. In the analysis of the results of the simulation, the behavior of the wet well and dry well during the event was particularly monitored, by analyzing the evolution of temperature and pressure profiles in such volumes, this to determine the impact of the inclusion of the breaker vacuum valves and down comers. The results show that the effect of this extension of the model is that more conservative results are obtained, i.e., higher pressures are reached in both wet well and dry well than when it is used a containment model that does not include neither the vacuum valves nor the down comers. The most relevant results obtained show that the Rcic alone is able to keep the core fully covered, but even in such a case, it evaporates about 15% of the initial inventory of liquid water in the Pressure Suppression Pool (Psp). When the Rcic operation is lost, 20% more of the liquid water inventory in the Psp is further reduced within four to twelve hours (approximately), time at which the simulation crashed. Besides, there is a significant increase of pressure in the containment. As the accident evolves, the pressure in the containment continues increasing, but there is still considerable margin to reach the design pressure of the containment. At the end of the simulation, the results show a gauge pressure value of 224,550 Pa in the Psp and 187,482 Pa in the wet well

To accomplish this task, the vacuum breaker valves and down comers were included in a simplified model of the primary containment that includes both wet well and dry well, which was coupled with a model of the Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS), in order to study the behavior of the primary containment during the evolution of the accident scenario. In the analysis of the results of the simulation, the behavior of the wet well and dry well during the event was particularly monitored, by analyzing the evolution of temperature and pressure profiles in such volumes, this to determine the impact of the inclusion of the breaker vacuum valves and down comers. The results show that the effect of this extension of the model is that more conservative results are obtained, i.e., higher pressures are reached in both wet well and dry well than when it is used a containment model that does not include neither the vacuum valves nor the down comers. The most relevant results obtained show that the Rcic alone is able to keep the core fully covered, but even in such a case, it evaporates about 15% of the initial inventory of liquid water in the Pressure Suppression Pool (Psp). When the Rcic operation is lost, 20% more of the liquid water inventory in the Psp is further reduced within four to twelve hours (approximately), time at which the simulation crashed. Besides, there is a significant increase of pressure in the containment. As the accident evolves, the pressure in the containment continues increasing, but there is still considerable margin to reach the design pressure of the containment. At the end of the simulation, the results show a gauge pressure value of 224,550 Pa in the Psp and 187,482 Pa in the wet well

    The growing demand for natural gas in Europe is taking place within a gradual process of deregulation aiming to achieve a single energy market. Gas industry's traditional structure and behaviour are facing new forms of competition. Gas producers might be willing to capture a greater share of downstream profits while large users are interested in securing their supply at the cheapest cost. In addition, new comers could appear at all stages of the industry, that are becoming contestable markets. Challengers and defenders will probably induce important changes in industry's present structure. 11 refs., 1 fig., 3 tabs

    Cygnus OB2 is a rich and relatively close (d~1.4 kpc) OB association in our Galaxy. It represents an ideal testbed for our theories about self-enrichment processes produced by pollution of the interstellar medium by successive generations of massive stars. Comerón & Pasquali (2012, A&A, 543, A101) found a correlation between the age of young stellar groups in Cygnus OB2 and their Galactic longitude. If is associated with a chemical composition gradient, it could support these self-enrichment processes.

Midterm follow up for our patients was acceptable with good functional class and appropriate echocardiographic findings. Due to high surgical risk of the redo procedure after failing of a bioprosthetic valve especially in elderly patients with comorbidities, ViV implantation would be a good alternative to surgery for this high risk group.

    Using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy, we report an experimental observation of three distinct resonances in split ring resonators (SRRs) for both vertical and horizontal electric field polarizations at normal incidence. Breaking the symmetry in SRRs by gradually displacing the capacitive gap from the centre towards the comer of the ring allows for an 85% modulation of the fundamental inductive-capacitive (LC) resonance. Increasing asymmetry leads to the evolution of an otherwise inaccessible high quality factor electric quadrupole resonance that can be exploited for bio-sensing applications in the terahertz region.

    Full Text Available O movimento de descentralizações política, administrativa e fiscal intensificado a partir de 1988 tinha como objetivo promover a transferência de poder, recursos e atribuições para os governos locais. Além disso, esse fenômeno impulsionou o processo de emancipação municipal com o intuito de aproximar o poder público da sociedade, promovendo a melhoria da prestação de serviços. Este estudo apresenta a análise das receitas públicas e do bem-estar social dos municípios mineiros emancipados no período de 1988 a 1997. Para tanto, utilizaram-se testes de médias no intuito de comparar o desempenho dos municípios emancipados com o desempenho de seus municípios de origem. Como conclusão, verificou-se que os novos municípios são beneficiados com as transferências governamentais e possuem a mesma capacidade de arrecadação tributária dos seus municípios de origem. Não obstante, isso não permitiu que os citados municípios apresentassem nível de bem-estar superior em relação aos municípios de origem, assim como maior eficiência na gestão desses recursos, uma vez que estão mais próximos dos usuários.El proceso de descentralización política, administrativa y fiscal intensificado a partir de 1988 tenía como objetivo promover la transferencia de poder, recursos y atribuciones para los gobiernos locales. Además, ese proceso ha impulsado el proceso de emancipación municipal de prestación de servicios. Este estudio presenta el análisis de las haciendas públicas y del bien estar social de los municipios de Minas Gerais emancipados en el periodo de 1988 a 1997. Para tanto, se han utilizado testes de medias con el objetivo de comparar el desempeño de los municipios emancipados con el desempeño de sus municipios de origen. Como conclusión, se ha verificado que los nuevos municipios son beneficiados con las transferencias gubernamentales y poseen la misma capacidad de recaudación tributaria de sus municipios de origen

    Full Text Available El presente artículo se despliega sobre el análisis del viaducto ferroviario que atraviesa el centro de la capital alemana en la dirección este-oeste. Con ello se pretende descifrar las estrategias de diseño urbano vinculadas a la planificación elevada de la Stadtbahn, discurriéndose sobre la configuración de la fisionomía urbana del centro de Berlín a través de una “fachada bien ordenada”. Así se expone la construcción de una morfología lineal asociada a la infraestructura de transporte segregado, aclarándose el designio de proyectar la línea de tren como un edificio-viaducto, que subordina la composición del espacio público a los efectos escénicos de su frontón arquitectónico. A través de un levantamiento in situ se deja de manifiesto que dicho edifico tiene la capacidad de romper la “maldición de los vacíos fronterizos”, contrariando la destrucción de las vecindades que típicamente convierte la vía segregada en una frontera físico-social. Esto con la intención de despejar el valor que la arquitectura agrega a estas construcciones originadas como respuesta exacta a problemas concretos de tiempo y distancia recogida, alumbrando un campo de trabajo multidisciplinario cada vez más ineludible, donde el aporte de los arquitectos al problema de la infraestructura de transporte aparece aún como figura difusa.

    Comemos para reponer el desgaste diario de las estructuras corporales y pérdidas de reservas energéticas. Un deportista debe comer más que un sedentario, porque gasta más. La calidad nutricional debe tener las adecuadas proporciones de carbohidratos, proteínas y grasas, que irán acompañadas por vitaminas, minerales y fibra. El agua es el nutriente más importante y el deportista debe cuidar especialmente su rehidratación.
    El reparto de las comidas debe armonizarse con la actividad física, para evitar problemas digestivos. Cuanto más variada sea la dieta, más correcta será la reposición nutricional. Hay que comer de todo, aunque de unas cosas más que de otras. Si se come suficiente en cantidad y con la calidad adecuada, no hará falta tomar suplementos nutricionales.

    Building E5476 was one of ten potentially contaminated sites in the Canal Creek and Westwood areas of the Edgewood section of Aberdeen Proving Ground examined by a geophysical team from Argonne National Laboratory in April and May of 1992. Noninvasive geophysical surveys, including magnetics, electrical resistivity, and ground-penetrating radar, were conducted around the perimeter of the building to guide a sampling program prior to decommissioning and dismantling. The large number of magnetic sources surrounding the building are believed to be contained in construction fill. The smaller anomalies, for the most part, were not imaged with ground radar or by electrical profiling. Large magnetic anomalies near the southwest comer of the building are due to aboveground standpipes and steel-reinforced concrete. Two high-resistivity areas, one projecting northeast from the building and another south of the original structure, may indicate the presence of organic pore fluids in the subsurface. A conductive lineament protruding from the south wall that is enclosed by the southem, high-resistivity feature is not associated with an equivalent magnetic anomaly. Magnetic and electrical anomalies south of the old landfill boundary are probably not associated with the building. The boundary is marked by a band of magnetic anomalies and a conductive zone trending northwest to southeast. The cause of high resistivities in a semicircular area in the southwest comer, within the landfill area, is unexplained

Noninvasive geophysical surveys, including magnetics, electrical resistivity, and ground-penetrating radar (GPR), were conducted around the perimeter of the building to guide a sampling program prior to decommissioning and dismantling. Several anomalies wear, noted: (1) An underground storage tank located 25 ft east of Building E5375 was identified with magnetic, resistivity, and GPR profiling. (2) A three-point resistivity anomaly, 12 ft east of the northeast comer of Building E5374 (which borders Building E5375) and 5 ft south of the area surveyed with the magnetometer, may be caused by another underground storage tank. (3) A 2,500-gamma magnetic anomaly near the northeast corner of the site has no equivalent resistivity anomaly, although disruption in GPR reflectors was observed. (4) A one-point magnetic anomaly was located at the northeast comer, but its source cannot be resolved.

  12. Recirculating steam generator operation at very low power

    Holcblat, A.

    2001-01-01

    The behaviour of recirculating SG's at very low power has been thoroughly investigated by laboratory and on-site tests as well as numerical simulations. A special experimental program dedicated to recirculation threshold determination has been performed on the Freon SG mock-up CLOTAIRE. These laboratory data are completed with transients of feedwater injections at hot stand-by on two instrumented SG's, one boiler type SG and one economizer type SG. The phenomena are different on both types. In boiler SG's, the SG behaves like a U-tube and recirculation stops around 2% load at stand-by temperature and water level. In economizer SG's, the presence of 2 separate down-comers and a divider plate inside the tube bundle allows a recirculation loop by-passing the separators. The mixing of saturated and cold water induced by this loop limits down-comer cooling and thus alleviates the thermal load on the tube sheet. These tests were used to validate the SG transient analysis 1-D code ANETH. (author)

    Object: To prevent coolant inventory within a cooling system loop in an atomic power plant from being varied depending on loads thereby relieving restriction of varied speed of coolant flow rate to lowering of a liquid surface due to short in coolant. Structure: Instruments such as a superheater, an evaporator, and the like, which constitute a cooling system loop in an atomic power plant, have a plurality of free liquid surface of coolant. Portions whose liquid surface is controlled and portions whose liquid surface is varied are adjusted in cross-sectional area so that the sum total of variation in coolant inventory in an instrument such as a superheater provided with an annulus portion in the center thereof and an inner cylindrical portion and a down-comer in the side thereof comes equal to that of variation in coolant inventory in an instrument such as an evaporator similar to the superheater. which is provided with an overflow pipe in its inner cylindrical portion or down-comer, thereby minimizing variation in coolant inventory of the entire coolant due to loads thus minimizing variation in varied speed of the coolant.

  17. Navajo transmission project Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1996-09-01

    Dine Power Authority, a Navajo Nation enterprise, proposes to construct a 500 kilovolt transmission line planned to deliver electrical power from the Shiprock Substation in northwestern New Mexico to either the Mead or the Marketplace Substation in southern Nevada. The line would relieve constraints on transmission of electricity west from the Four Comers area; improve operational flexibility and reliability of the overall system; and allow increased economical transfers, sales, and purchases in the Rocky Mountains/Four Comers/Desert Southwest region. Also, the project allows an opportunity for the Navajo Nation to participate in the electrical utility industry and promote economic development to benefit the people of the Navajo Nation. Alternatives considered include energy conservation and electric load management, new generation facilities, use of existing transmission systems, alternative transmission technologies, no action, and the proposed action. For the proposed action, several alternative routes and ancillary facility locations are addressed: four alternative routes and five substations in the eastern portion of the project area; and six alternative routes, three substation sites, and a microwave communication facility in the western portion of the project area. The existing condition of the environmental resources in the project area is described and potential impacts on those resources as a result of the proposed action are addressed. The impacts of the proposed action would be caused mainly by access roads, tower sites, and other associated facilities on soils, vegetation, wildlife, and cultural and paleontological resources, and the impact of the transmission line's presence on visual resources and land uses

La présence féminine est évidente mais varie selon lessources car l’influence féminine n’est pas simplement tacite, mais constitue bel et bien un droit reconnu et sanctionné par des usages. Les institutions urbaines d’ancien régime sont cependant résolument masculines et l’impuissance des femmes réside plutôt dans leur extériorité au langage de celles-ci, sans que cela les empêche de faire « comme les hommes ». Mais leur investissement effectif dans la cause janséniste pose de manière récurrente, et insoluble, la question de leur rôle politique dans une société de plus en plus travaillée par le problème de la représentation.Contrary to the idea that associates religious deviance or minority with secrecy, Jansenism offers a different case study. During the eighteenth century Jansenists made their deviance public throughout the city of Paris, the major manifestation of which being the pilgrimage to the tomb of Deacon François de Pâris. Even though women participated to the movement, different sources give little evidence, as female influence was not simply tacit, but indeed constituted a right acknowledged by uses. Yet, urban institutions membership was resolutely male, the impotence of women, in that case, can be explained by their being foreign to the discourse of municipal bodies, which did not prevent them from acting “like men”. Therefore, the effective female investment in the Jansenist cause regularly posed the insoluble problem of their political role in a society in which the issue of representation became crucial.

    This analysis investigates the 5-year outcomes of the biodegradable polymer biolimus-eluting stent (BP-BES) and durable polymer everolimus-eluting stent (DP-EES) in an all-comers population undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Recent 1- and 3-year results from randomized trials have indicated similar safety and efficacy outcomes of BP-BES and DP-EES. Whether benefits of the biodegradable polymer device arise over longer follow-up is unknown. Moreover, in-depth, prospective, long-term follow-up data on metallic drug-eluting stents with durable or biodegradable polymers are scarce. The COMPARE II trial (Abluminal Biodegradable Polymer Biolimus-Eluting Stent Versus Durable Polymer Everolimus-Eluting Stent) was a prospective, randomized, multicenter, all-comers trial in which 2,707 patients were randomly allocated (2:1) to BP-BES or DP-EES. The pre-specified endpoint at 5 years was major adverse cardiac events, a composite of cardiac death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, or target vessel revascularization. Five-year follow-up was available in 2,657 patients (98%). At 5 years, major adverse cardiac events occurred in 310 patients (17.3%) in the BP-BES group and 142 patients (15.6%) in the DP-EES group (p = 0.26). The rate of the combined safety endpoint all-cause death or myocardial infarction was 15.0% in the BP-BES group versus 14.8% in the DP-EES group (p = 0.90), whereas the efficacy measure target vessel revascularization was 10.6% versus 9.0% (p = 0.18), respectively. Interestingly, definite stent thrombosis rates did not differ between groups (1.5% for BP-BES vs. 0.9% for DP-EES; p = 0.17). The 5-year analysis comparing biodegradable polymer-coated BES and the durable polymer-coated EES confirms the initial early- and mid-term results regarding similar safety and efficacy outcomes in this all-comers percutaneous coronary intervention population.

    The Earth's climate is changing due to human activities. Recent polls suggest that the U.S. public generally recognizes this fact, and the efforts that led the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former U.S. vice president Al Gore to win the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize have played no small role in bringing most of the public to realize what scientists have been discussing for years. Yet aside from distorted Hollywood movie accounts such as The Day After Tomorrow, the public knows little about the potential for abrupt change in the climate system. With support from climate science philanthropist Gary Comer, climate scientist Wally Broecker has teamed with science writer Robert Kunzig in this book to bring abrupt climate change into public view. They do this elegantly and convincingly, making the first 12 chapters quite enjoyable.

    There have been a number of restraints in Japan delaying the introduction of natural gas vehicles (NGVs), which is a new comer in car industry. The Japanese gas industry, with support from government agencies, has conducted feasibility studies and clarified necessary technical and safety standards and regulations. These efforts have contributed to the government's drive for deregulation. Concurrently, the gas industry worked out its own scenarios for the promotion of NGVs in Japan, which helped the government in laying down necessary regulations and establishing clear market objectives for the vehicles as government policies. Such activities have yielded model introduction by the national and local governments and government-sponsored incentives for NGV promotion. For auto manufacturers, the gas industry proposed joint development projects and clarified potential market for NGVs. Consequently, many manufactures are now involved in their own NGV development projects. (au)

    Response of three 150x150x450mm short reinforced concrete (RC) columns confined with different types of confining steel was investigated. Standard stirrups, strips and stapled strips, each having same cross-sectional area, were employed as confining steel around four comer column bars. Experimental work was aimed at probing into the affect of stapled strip confinement on post elastic behavior and ductility level under cyclic axial load. Ductility ratios, strength enhancement factor and core concrete strengths were compared to study the affect of confinement. Results indicate that strength enhancement in RC columns due to strip and stapled strip confinement was not remarkable as compared to stirrup confined column. It was found that as compared to stirrup confined column, stapled strip confinement enhanced the ductility of RC column by 183% and observed axial capacity of stapled strip confined columns was 41 % higher than the strip confined columns.

  11. The Nuclear Power Landscape in the Post-Fukushima Era: Thoughts on the Current and Future Effects on Nuclear New-Build

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Tyobeka, B.

    2012-01-01

    The nuclear landscape looked very promising before the Fukushima Daiichi accident. In the past five years before the accident, so-called Nuclear Rennainsance looked to be in full swing, with many countries beginning to factor nuclear energy as part of their electricity generation mix. At some point, 43 IAEA Members States confirmed their interest in launching new nuclear power programmes. Whilst only two of these nuclear new-comers have already chosen the reactor designs they would deploy in their new build, it is commonly accepted that the so-called Generation III and Generation III+ would mostly be the designs of the choice for new nuclear build. This presentation seeks to examine the current status of plans for nuclear build after Fukushima, looking into technology and safety issues that would influence the final policy decisions in new nuclear build programmes.(author).

  12. A method of camera calibration with adaptive thresholding

    2009-07-01

    In order to calculate the parameters of the camera correctly, we must figure out the accurate coordinates of the certain points in the image plane. Corners are the important features in the 2D images. Generally speaking, they are the points that have high curvature and lie in the junction of different brightness regions of images. So corners detection has already widely used in many fields. In this paper we use the pinhole camera model and SUSAN corner detection algorithm to calibrate the camera. When using the SUSAN corner detection algorithm, we propose an approach to retrieve the gray difference threshold, adaptively. That makes it possible to pick up the right chessboard inner comers in all kinds of gray contrast. The experiment result based on this method was proved to be feasible.

  13. Building a new energy network in North East Asia. A perspective from post-Fukushima Japan

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Shibutani, Yu

    2012-01-01

    The accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS) has accelerated Japan's drive for less dependence on nuclear and fossil energy and more green renewables, which inevitably require a new energy strategy. In this paper, a new strategic scenario for moving 'beyond a single economy' is proposed to incorporate Japan with the North East Asian (NEA) energy market in regards to its electricity grid and natural gas pipeline network while preserving nuclear power by strengthening safety. Suggestions are also made that Japan should open more doors for new comers in a manner of open-access towards member economies of NEA. However, there are persistent geopolitical constraints and risks in NEA. The connection of Japan's energy network to its regional neighbors would avoid the tendrils and tentacles of geopolitics that wrap around NEA, and subsequently provide opportunities to build on common energy interests.

    2010-01-01

    BACKGROUND: In low-risk patients, the zotarolimus-eluting stent has been shown to reduce rates of restenosis without increasing the risk of stent thrombosis. We compared the efficacy and safety of the zotarolimus-eluting stent versus the sirolimus-eluting stent in patients with coronary artery...... disease who were receiving routine clinical care with no direct follow-up. METHODS: We did a single-blind, all-comer superiority trial in adult patients with chronic stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndromes, and at least one target lesion. Patients were treated at one of five...... Danish administrative and health-care registries. The primary endpoint was a composite of major adverse cardiac events within 9 months: cardiac death, myocardial infarction, and target vessel revascularisation. Intention-to-treat analyses were done at 9-month and 18-month follow-up. This trial...

    Okubo, Tsutomu; Murao, Yoshio

    1983-07-01

    In order to assess the core thermo-hydrodynamic models of REFLA-1D/MODE3, which is the latest version of REFLA-1D, several calculations of the core thermo-hydrodynamics have been performed for the CCTF Core-I series tests. The measured initial and boundary conditions were used for these calculations. The calculational results showed that the water accumulation model of Case 2 could predict the CCTF results fairly well as it could for the JAERI small scale facility. The calculated results for the base case and the EM tests were in good agreement with the CCTF data. The parameter effects, such as system pressure, initial clad temperature, Acc injection rate, LPCI injection rate and initial down-comer wall temperature, were predicted correctly, except for the high system pressure and the high LPCI injection rate tests.

    This survey collects together theoretical results in the area of numerical cubature over triangles and is a vehicle for a current bibliography. We treat first the theory relating to regular integrands and then the corresponding theory for singular integrands with emphasis on the ``full comer singularity.`` Within these two sections we treat successively approaches based on transforming the triangle into a square, formulas based on polynomial moment fitting, and extrapolation techniques. Within each category we quote key theoretical results without proof, and relate other results and references to these. Nearly all the references we have found may be readily placed in one of these categories. This survey is theoretical in character and does not include recent work in adaptive and automatic integration.

    OBJECTIVES: To test if cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) can be used in the triage of patients at high risk of coronary artery disease. DESIGN: The diagnostic value of 64-detector CCTA was evaluated in 400 patients presenting with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction using...... invasive coronary angiography (ICA) as the reference method. The relation between the severity of disease by CCTA and a combined endpoint of death, re-hospitalization due to new myocardial infarction, or symptom-driven coronary revascularization was assessed. RESULTS: CCTA detects significant (>50...... in patients with high likelihood of coronary artery disease and could, in theory, be used to triage high risk patients. As many obstacles remain, including logistical and safety issues, our study does not support the use of CCTA as an additional diagnostic test before ICA in an all-comer NSTEMI population....

    Malaysia is in the stage of conducting Preliminary Technical Feasibility Study for the Deployment of Small Modular Reactor (SMR). There are different types of SMR, some already under construction in Argentina (CAREM) and China (HTR-PM) - (light water reactor and high temperature reactor technologies), others with near-term deployment such as SMART in South Korea, ACP100 in China, mPower and NuScale in the US, and others with longer term deployment prospects (liquid-metal cooled reactor technologies). The study was mainly to get an overview of the technology available in the market. The SMR ranking in the study was done through listing out the most deployable technology in the market according to their types. As a new comer country, the proven technology with an excellent operation history will usually be the main consideration points. (author)

    Object: To relieve and absorb impact wave vibrations caused by steam and non-condensed gases releasing into the pressure suppression chamber at the time of an accident. Structure: The reactor container is filled with inert gases. A safety valve attached main steam pipe is provided to permit the excessive steam to escape, the valve being communicated with the pressure suppression chamber through an exhaust pipe. In the pressure suppression chamber, a doughnut-like cylindrical outer wall is filled at its bottom with pool water to condense the high temperature vapor released through the exhaust pipe. A head portion of a vent tube which leads the exhaust pipe is positioned at the top, and a down comer and an exhaust vent tube are locked by means of steady rests. At the bottom is mounted a pressure adsorber device which adsorbs a pressure from the pool water. (Kamimura, M.)

    Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with incomplete revascularization (ICR) is thought to decrease survival. We studied the survival of patients with ICR undergoing total arterial grafting. In a consecutive series of all-comer 1000 patients with isolated CABG, operative and midterm survival were assessed for patients undergoing complete versus ICR, with odds ratios and hazard ratios, adjusted for European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation category, CABG urgency, age, and comorbidities. In this series of 1000 patients with 98% arterial grafts (2922 arterial, 59 vein grafts), 73% of patients with multivessel disease received bilateral internal mammary artery grafts. ICR occurred in 140 patients (14%). Operative mortality was 3.8% overall, 8.6% for patients with ICR, and 3.2% for patients with complete revascularization (P = .008).

    This paper describes the results of a preliminary project conducted by a team of DePaul University undergraduate students and staff from the Gary Comer Youth Center located on Chicago's South Side. The team assessed soil quality on 116 samples collected among four abandoned residential lots adjacent to the Comer Center. Soil quality data will be used in a follow-up study to determine the suitability of each lot for green infrastructure implementation. Green infrastructure may be a useful approach for providing ecosystem services and mitigating food deserts in inner-city communities. Soil quality on all lots was poor. All soils had pH >8.0, low biological activity, and low N mineralization potential. The soils were rich in available P and had mean total Pb concentrations above the USEPA threshold (400 mg kg) for children's playlots. Mean bioavailable Pb on the largest of the four lots was 12% of total Pb, indicating that most of the total Pb is not bioavailable. This result is encouraging because high bioavailable Pb concentrations are linked with negative health effects, particularly in children. All lots had NO-N concentrations below those considered to be appropriate for plant growth. On the other hand, no significant differences in mean concentrations of the other analytes were found. The poor soil quality in the four lots presents an opportunity to use green infrastructure to enhance ecosystem services, improve community and environmental health, and provide more equitable access to green space.

Observou-se que os mesmos utilizam estratégias que se aproximam mais da realidade cotidiana dos participantes, e que aspectos psicológicos e motivacionais são considerados importantes. Além disso, há uma tentativa de criar estratégias educacionais que transitem da concepção do "fazer dieta" para o conceito de reeducação alimentar concebida como "o comer de tudo, sem passar fome". Tal fato revela uma aliança entre as ciências da nutrição e a gastronomia, que representa um elo importante nas tentativas do resgate do prazer em comer. Destaca-se a importância de estudar tais estratégias, uma vez que o emagrecimento tem sido uma meta desejada por grande parte da população, seja com objetivo de ampliar a qualidade da saúde, seja com fins estéticos.This paper aims to describe and analyze some elements of diet programs offered on the Internet. The study observed that strategies used by the programs are familiar to people, and that psychological and motivational aspects are important. Therefore, there is an attempt to create educational strategies ranging from the concept of "doing diet" to "nutritional re-education". The latter is understood as "to eat everything, without starving". This fact unveils an alliance between the nutritional sciences and gastronomy, which greatly helps recovering the pleasure of eating. The text points out the importance of studying such strategies, mainly because losing weight is the objective of the largest part of the population, either for improving health or for aesthetical purposes.

    The lead author, an Environmental Science teacher at Gary Comer High School (GCHS), a public charter on the South Side of Chicago, accompanied two students over the course of two summers to conduct field research in remote mountain ranges of interior Asia. The expeditions were funded by the National Science Foundation and orchestrated collaboratively with PI Putnam with the purposes of bringing along high school students and teachers (1) to introduce students from urban areas to practical Earth Science and (2) to bolster the Environmental Science curriculum at GCHS by providing real world events to relate to classroom learning. During the first field trip, a student from GCHS and the lead author traveled to western Mongolia to participate in collecting samples for cosmogenic-nuclide dating of glacial landforms. The student performed all parts of sample collection and used the data to create a poster analyzing the rate of recession of the Potanin Glacier. She went on to present her findings at the AGU Fall Meeting 2016. At GCHS, she assisted the teacher in lessons about climate change. Next year she will be attending the University of Vermont to pursue a major in a STEM field. The second student traveled to the Tibetan Plateau in China and also participated fully in sampling activities. She plans on presenting her project on creating 3D models of sample boulders at the AGU Meeting in 2017. She will present her findings to the rest of the student body at GCHS, assist with pertinent Environmental Science lessons for Freshmen, and explain her experience at the Gary Comer Middle School. The lead author faced several restrictions in the classroom due to standardized testing requirements, leading to more focus on testing skills rather than investigative learning. Next year the focus will switch from ACT to SAT standards, allowing more freedom to pursue investigative lessons. The success of adding information on the field experience will be assessed at the end of the 2017

    As attentions to the beyond design basis accident have increased following Fukushima accident, the importance of aging management for key system, structure and components of nuclear power plant (NPP) also has been emerged as the key factor for safety and reliability of NPPs. The diverse experiences can serve as the foundation for aging management processes that has major trust in the understanding of materials degradation mechanisms. IAEA and IFRAM have collaborated to produce the nuclear plant aging management handbook in order to help entry-level engineers and graduate students understand big pictures. As the number of old NPPs and new-comer countries have increased, sharing experiences and accumulated knowledge from existing nuclear industries has become increasingly important. From this point of view, the handbook has been completed for publication by IAEA which assembled a panel of international experts to integrate the vast body of background knowledge regarding aging mechanism and the extensive know-hows of expertsinto a primer handbook. The next step is to actively utilize the IAEA handbook to produce its web version. In order to reach the ultimate purpose of nuclear safety culture of IAEA, information the handbook should be made easily accessible ana understandable. In this regards, the conversion of IFRAM handbook to web version is being planned. Careful considerations about how to restructure the content and how to reflect opinions from experts and readers are needed. In addition, this handbook can be extended to a training program for maintenance managers, vendors, research organizations and regulators to assist them in their work on aging management in operating NPPs. Through these two aspects, this IFRAM handbook on aging management of NPPs will support of NPP staff both new-comer and established countries. This paper introduces the purpose, approach, structure, content of already completed IAEA handbook and the status and plan for IFRAM Web

    The aim of this study was to determine how trial-based findings of EXCEL and NOBLE might be interpreted and generalizable in 'real-world' settings with comparison of data from the large-scaled, all-comer Interventional Research Incorporation Society-Left MAIN Revascularization (IRIS-MAIN) registry. We compared baseline clinical and procedural characteristics and also determined how the relative treatment effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was different in EXCEL and NOBLE, compared with those of the multicenter, IRIS-MAIN registry (n=2481). The primary outcome for between-study comparison was a composite of death, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke. There were between-study differences in patient risk profiles (age, BMI, diabetes, and clinical presentation), lesion complexities, and procedural characteristics (stent type, the use of off-pump surgery, and radial artery); the proportion of diabetes and acute coronary syndrome was particularly lower in NOBLE than in other studies. Although there was interstudy heterogeneity for the protocol definition of MI, the risks for serious composite outcome of death, MI, or stroke were similar between PCI and CABG in EXCEL [hazard ratio (HR): 1.00; 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.79-1.26; P=0.98] and in the matched cohort of IRIS-MAIN (HR: 1.08; 95%CI: 0.85-1.38; P=0.53), whereas it was significantly higher after PCI than after CABG in NOBLE (HR: 1.47; 95%CI: 1.06-2.05; P=0.02), which was driven by more common MI and stroke after PCI. In the comparison of a large-sized, all-comer registry, the EXCEL trial might represent better generalizability with respect to baseline characteristics and observed clinical outcomes compared with the NOBLE trial.

El sobrepeso y la obesidad se han convertido en años recientes en un problema de salud pública en México, no sólo en zonas urbanas, sino tambien en las rurales. La preocupación por el cuerpo comienza a detectarse entre algunas mujeres de estas zonas. El trabajo que aquí se presenta es una primera aproximación al tema de la percepción corporal en dos grupos de mujeres oaxaqueñas de entre 15 y 50 años, uno indígena y otro mestizo. Se observó que las mujeres de la costa tienen más problemas de sobrepeso y obesidad, se perciben como más gordas y les gustaría ser delgadas y a algunas, hasta desnutridas, a diferencia de las mujeres indígenas de la sierra. Se comienzan a detectar algunos casos de mujeres que practican la anorexia y bulimia en este lugar. Se discute la necesidad de profundizar más en este problema con el objetivo de que se incluyan en futuros programas educativos en nutrición, temas como la percepción del cuerpo.

    Mozec™ CTO is a novel semicompliant rapid-exchange PTCA balloon catheter with specific features dedicated to treat complex coronary lesions like chronic total occlusions (CTOs). However, no data have been reported about the performance of this device in an all-comers population with complex coronary lesions. We evaluated the safety and success rate of Mozec™ CTO balloon in 41 consecutive patients with chronic stable angina and complex coronary lesions (15 severe calcified coronary stenoses, 15 bifurcation lesions with planned two-stent intervention, and 11 CTOs). Safety was assessed reporting the balloon burst rate after inflation exceeding the rated burst pressure (RBP) according to the manufacturer's reference table. Success was defined as the possibility to advance the device further the target lesion. The Mozec™ CTO balloon showed an excellent performance with a 93.3% success in crossing tight and severely calcified lesions (14/15 pts), a 93.3% success in engaging jailed side branches after stent deployment across bifurcations (14/15 pts), and a 90.9% success in crossing CTO lesions (10/11 pts). The burst rate at RBP of the Mozec™ CTO balloon was 6.7% (1/15 balloons) in the tight and severely calcified lesions, 6.7% (1/15 balloons) when dilating jailed vessels, and 9.1% (1/11 balloons) in CTOs. The novel Mozec™ CTO balloon dilatation catheter showed promising results when employed to treat complex lesions in an all-comers population. Further studies should clarify if this kind of balloon might reduce the need of more costly devices like over-the-wire balloons and microcatheters for complex lesions treatment.

  17. Gibbs-Thomson Law for Singular Step Segments: Thermodynamics Versus Kinetics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chernov, A. A.

    2003-01-01

    Classical Burton-Cabrera-Frank theory presumes that thermal fluctuations are so fast that at any time density of kinks on a step is comparable with the reciprocal intermolecular distance, so that the step rate is about isotropic within the crystal plane. Such azimuthal isotropy is, however, often not the case: Kink density may be much lower. In particular, it was recently found on the (010) face of orthorhombic lysozyme that interkink distance may exceed 500-600 intermolecular distances. Under such conditions, Gibbs-Thomson law (GTL) may not be applicable: On a straight step segment between two corners, communication between the comers occurs exclusively by kink exchange. Annihilation between kinks of opposite sign generated at the comers results in the grain in step energy entering GTL. If the step segment length l much greater than D/v, where D and v are the kink diffusivity and propagation rate, respectively, the opposite kinks have practically no chance to annihilate and GTL is not applicable. The opposite condition of the GTL applicability, l much less than D/v, is equivalent to the requirement that relative supersaturation Delta(sub mu)/kT much less than alpha/l, where alpha is molecular size. Thus, GTL may be applied to a segment of 10(exp 3)alpha approx. 3 x 10(exp -5)cm approx 0.3 micron only if supersaturation is less than 0.1%, while practically used driving forces for crystallization are much larger. Relationships alternative to the GTL for different, but low, kink density have been discussed. They confirm experimental evidences that the Burton-Cabrera-Frank theory of spiral growth is growth rates twice as low as compared to the observed figures. Also, application of GTL results in unrealistic step energy while suggested kinetic law give reasonable figures.

    2004-01-01

    El deísmo rousseauniano desestima la existencia del caos o del Mal general. Por el contrario, ve en el sistema del mundo un orden perfecto que obedece a la divina Providencia, identificada con la legalidad universal de la naturaleza. Mas con ello su intención no es despreciar el sufrimiento de los individuos. De hecho Rousseau reconoce y admite la presencia, e incluso la abundancia, de diversos males que afectan al hombre. ¿Acaso él mismo no es un claro ejemplo de ello?

    “El gran artista que pintó La Cena en la pared del refectorio de un convento de Milán dejaba correr la vida de sus pinceles; en ese cuadro, fíjate bien, casi todos hablan pero las manos son más expresivas cuando hay cosas importantes que decir; trataba se de saber quién se atrevería a vender al Maestro; ¿me estás acompañando? Es la Santa Cena, ¿la viste bien?” Explicó el fraile. Antonio confirmó moviendo la cabeza y dijo: ¿Me la prestais? Oyéronle la voz después de dos semanas! El fraile había curado al mulato. Por la noche el papá le corregía los diseños y una vez le preguntó qué era lo más bonito que había visto y al responderle que un santo echando candela por las manos, le explicó que eran los estigmas de San Francisco y que le hiciera de ellos un buen diseño. Desde entonces para Antonio las manos fueron su obsesión.

Para festejar la asignación de un contrato Manuella llevó a su casa, vistió la mejor ropa y se entregó a la prestidigitación arrojando monedas de oro al amplio regazo de María, su esposa, que no sabía ser alegre ni entendió el juego. Manuel atrapó una moneda de oro que caía, lanzó un improperio y se fue con Antonio a beber en otras partes. Bien bebido y estimulado por canciones eróticas dijo a Antonio: he hecho obras pero no he sido sino rematador; quiero que seas más que tallador y contratista, olvídate de la oficina y quédate con Xavier de Brito que tiene mucho que enseñarte.

    Full Text Available The European Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes requires that a feasibility study must be conducted by the European Commission to determine if all sourcing of non-human primates from parents bred in captivity (F2 or from self-sustaining colonies can be achieved. This study should also include an assessment of animal health and welfare. Prior to the initiation of the European Commission’s study, it was considered by EFPIA and FELASA that the criteria to be used in the feasibility, health and welfare assessment should be established by experts to help expedite such a study. This paper identifies those criteria which may be useful in making policy decisions on the confirmation or reconsideration of the timetable for implementation of the F2 requirement. A key requirement before a number of criteria can be assessed is the generation of base-line data relating to the supply and future demand of non-human primates and the health and welfare status of current breeding colonies supplying the European market. Three groups of criteria have been indentified, namely feasibility, science and research and welfare. Within each group, a number of parameters are defined and their rationale for inclusion, together with suggested information points, is discussed.La directive européenne 2010/63/EU sur la protection des animaux utilisés à des fins scientifiques exige qu'une étude de faisabilité soit conduite par la Commission européenne afin de déterminer si l’approvisionnement en primates non-humains à partir de géniteurs élevés en captivité (F2 ou de colonies d'élevage autosuffisantes, peut être possible.

La falta de adherencia a este tratamiento está relacionada con problemas de salud graves, mientras que el cumplimiento conduce a la normalización. Recientemente, la auto-eficacia se ha asociado con comportamientos de autogestión de las enfermedades crónicas y el estado de salud en muchos campos.Objetivos: Diseñar y validar una escala para medir la auto-eficacia en la adherencia a una dieta libre de gluten en los diferentes ámbitos a los que se enfrentan todos los días los pacientes con enfermedad celíaca.Material y Métodos: Para el proceso de validación, el equipo de investigación reclutará a 500 personas diagnosticadas de enfermedad celíaca, de más de 12 años de edad, a partir de los servicios de atención primaria y las asociaciones de pacientes. Se diseñará una escala para explorar la autoeficacia específica en la adherencia a una dieta sin gluten en las siguientes áreas: compras, comer fuera de casa, comer en casa con otros, viajar y comer en el trabajo o en el colegio. Se llevará a acabo un panel de expertos para asegurar la calidad de los ítems y la utilidad de la escala. Se realizarán los estudios piloto que sean necesarios para su mejora y se analizará su validez de constructo mediante un análisis factorial exploratorio mientras que la validez concurrente será medida mediante su correlación con la adaptación española del General Self Efficacy Scale de Baessler y Schwarzer. La fiabilidad del instrumento, así como de cada uno de los factores, será determinada utilizando el coeficiente alfa de Cronbach de consistencia interna.

  20. Scattering and the Point Spread Function of the New Generation Space Telescope

    Schreur, Julian J.

    1996-01-01

    Preliminary design work on the New Generation Space Telescope (NGST) is currently under way. This telescope is envisioned as a lightweight, deployable Cassegrain reflector with an aperture of 8 meters, and an effective focal length of 80 meters. It is to be folded into a small-diameter package for launch by an Atlas booster, and unfolded in orbit. The primary is to consist of an octagon with a hole at the center, and with eight segments arranged in a flower petal configuration about the octagon. The comers of the petal-shaped segments are to be trimmed so that the package will fit atop the Atlas booster. This mirror, along with its secondary will focus the light from a point source into an image which is spread from a point by diffraction effects, figure errors, and scattering of light from the surface. The distribution of light in the image of a point source is called a point spread function (PSF). The obstruction of the incident light by the secondary mirror and its support structure, the trimmed corners of the petals, and the grooves between the segments all cause the diffraction pattern characterizing an ideal point spread function to be changed, with the trimmed comers causing the rings of the Airy pattern to become broken up, and the linear grooves causing diffraction spikes running radially away from the central spot, or Airy disk. Any figure errors the mirror segments may have, or any errors in aligning the petals with the central octagon will also spread the light out from the ideal point spread function. A point spread function for a mirror the size of the NGST and having an incident wavelength of 900 nm is considered. Most of the light is confined in a circle with a diameter of 0.05 arc seconds. The ring pattern ranges in intensity from 10(exp -2) near the center to 10(exp -6) near the edge of the plotted field, and can be clearly discerned in a log plot of the intensity. The total fraction of the light scattered from this point spread function is called

    This study focuses on the retrofit of hollow concrete masonry infilled steel frames subjected to in-plane lateral loads using glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) laminates that are epoxy-bonded to the exterior faces of the infill walls. An extensive experimental investigation using one-third scale modeling was conducted and consisted of two phases. In the first phase, 64 assemblages, half of which were retrofitted, were tested under various combined in-plane loading conditions similar to those which different regions of a typical infill wall are subjected to. In the second phase, one bare and four masonry-infilled steel frames representative of a typical single-story, single-bay panel were tested under diagonal loading to study the overall behavior and the infill-frame interaction. The relative infill-to-frame stiffness was varied as a test parameter by using two different steel frame sections. The laminates altered the failure modes of the masonry assemblages and reduced the variability and anisotropic nature of the masonry. For the prisms which failed due to shear and/or mortar joint slip, significant strength increases were observed. For those exhibiting compression failure modes, a marginal increase in strength resulted. Retrofitting the infilled frames resulted in an average increase in initial stiffness of two-fold compared to the unretrofitted infilled frames, and seemed independent of the relative infill-to-frame stiffness. However, the increase in the load-carrying capacity of the retrofitted frames compared to the unretrofitted counterparts was higher for those with the larger relative infill-to-frame stiffness parameter. Unlike the unretrofitted infill walls, the retrofitted panels demonstrated almost identical failure modes that were characterized as "strictly comer crushing" in the vicinity of the loaded comers whereas no signs of distress were evident throughout the remainder of the infill. The laminates also maintained the structural integrity of

    Full text: Most of French operating nuclear plants were constructed within a small time window. Few new plants have come on line within the last decade. As a result, most operating plants today have an ageing workforce that is going to retire in large numbers. In the next ten years, 40% of EDF nuclear workforce is going to retire, in average 600 people per year. At the same time, potential restructurings are opportunities to provide internal personnel for Nuclear Power Plants. The first generation of nuclear industry workers was hired during nuclear plant starting and testing. That was an opportunity to for training in the field without nuclear hazard. In addition, the NPP requirements increased dramatically through the last twenty years. This situation led to start a project to effectively adapt and renew workforce competences in the 19 EDF NPP in France. This Paper describes three steps to successfully ensure this transition to the new generation of nuclear industry workers. Acting in the field from their initial training, recruits are earlier ready to perform: 1. A Nuclear Job Academy in each French region based on Team Building and Sister Plants association, new training techniques and field training regarding behaviour and craft. All the new comers in Nuclear Power Station are led by an experienced technical mentor and trained by managers and experienced staff. 2. Flow loop maintenance simulator in each plant.On line training and test for periodic training.Step by Step qualification process. Internal workforce moving and rotation become a consistent, safe and successful opportunity to renew competences: EDF Group promotes the mobility of human resources by improving skills management (training programs, encouraging profession mobility, and reorientation towards priority jobs). To ensure that each nuclear new comer from internal workforce meets the nuclear requirements (as hired people), we build strong process witch guaranty internal people recruitment with

O trabalho parte de uma perspectiva da filosofia em busca de uma aproximação com a realidade complexa da saúde coletiva, aplicada à problemática da obesidade. Discute a superação de oposições como a do "comer porque quero e não comer porque engorda" numa compreensão ética dos conflitos alimentares e agravos nutricionais, de modo a articular teoria e prática na contemporaneidade. Foram elaboradas, como exercício de conceituação, duas definições de obesidade. Uma levando em conta a capacidade singular de as pessoas estarem ativas e potentes na vida, e outra considerando os padrões atuais de normalidade para os corpos. Concluímos descrevendo algumas possibilidades de utilização desse recurso na área de alimentação e saúde de forma que o ser humano não seja reduzido a uma metade, seja ela corpo ou alma, mas que seja compreendido em sua integralidade.This article looks into the construction of concepts in the health area and their use as a methodological instrument in the dissolution of limiting dichotomies such as the one between body and mind. This work starts from a philosophical perspective, in the attempt to look closer into the complex reality of collective health, applied to the problems related to obesity. We discuss how to overcome opposing issues such as "to eat because I want and not to eat because it makes me fat", understanding the eating conflicts and the nutritional aggravations from an ethical point-of-view, so as to bring together theory and practice within contemporaneity. To exercise this conceptualization, we have formulated two definitions of obesity: first, taking into account the singular capacity of each individual to be active and powerful in life; second, considering the current standards of normality for the human

    We present a first description of a Heart Team (HT)-guided approach to coronary revascularization and its long-term effect on clinical events after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The HT approach is a structured process to decide for coronary bypass grafting (CABG), PCI or conservative therapy in ad hoc situations as well as in HT conferences. As a hypothesis, during the long-term course after a PCI performed according to HT rules, a low number of late revascularizations, especially CABGs, are expected (F-PCI study). In this monocentric study, the HT approach to an all-comer population was first analyzed and described in general with the help of a database. Next the use of a HT approach was described for a more homogeneous subgroup with newly detected CAD (1.CAD). Those patients in whom the HT decision was PCI (which was a 1.PCI) were then studied with the help of questionnaires for clinical events during a very long-term follow-up. Events were CABG, PCI, diagnostic catheterization (DCath) and death. A significant number of patients were presented to HT conferences: 22 % out of all 11,174 catheterizations, 24 % out of all 7867 CAD cases and 35 % out of 3408 1.CAD cases. Most of these patients had multi-vessel disease (MVD). Conference decisions were isolated CABG in 46-66 %, PCI in 10-14 %, valvular surgery in 9-16 %, HTx in 10-21 % (Endstage heart failure candidates for surgery) and conservative therapy (Medical or no therapy, additional diagnostic procedures or no adherence to recommended therapy) in 2-3 %. However, most PCIs, ad hoc and elective, were performed under Heart Team rules, but without conference. During follow-up of 1.PCI patients (Kaplan-Meier analysis), CABG occurred in only 15 % of patients, PCI in 37 % and DCath in 65 %; mortality of any course was 51 %. Mortalities were similar in one-vessel disease and in a population of the same year, matched for age and sex (p PCI patients with MVD (p PCI) rates after a 1.PCI, without

Imagen de abundancia, refinamiento, placer y tradición, por una parte refleja el orden social establecido y por otra parte significa lo extraordinario, la ruptura de la rutina. Los ricos comen todavía más y mejor y los pobres escapan al menos por un día de la escasez y la limitación cotidianas. En la España moderna, desde los grandes banquetes cortesanos, llenos de lujo y fantasía, tiasta los más modestos banquetes de las cofradías, todos los grupos sociales, de los más altos a los más bajos, se manifiestan en sus fiestas alimentarias. El ritmo de la vida queda subrayado, por ejemplo, en los siempre espléndidos banquetes de boda. El ritmo del año lo marcan también múltiples celebraciones alimentarias. Navidad, Carnaval, fiestas mayores. El banquete no es sólo realidad es también utopía y se sueña en el imaginario colectivo como un ideal de vida en que la necesidad de comer para vivir se transforma en el placer de vivir para comer.The banquet is, no doubt, one of the signs of feast par excellence. Image of abundance, refinement, pleasure and tradition, it reflects, on the one hand, the established social order and on the other means the extraordinary, the rupture of the daily rutine. The rich eat even more and better than usual and the poor avoid at least for one single day the shortage of food and the day to day limitations. In Early modern Spain, from the great court banquets, which were luxurious and full of fantasy, to the most humble guild banquets, the vichóle social groups, from the upper class to the lowest ones, manifest their social position in their food feasts. The everyday rate is usually emphasized, for instance, in the ever spiendid wedding breakfasts. The year rate is also marked with a large number of food feasts, which are held at Christmas, Carnival and in our «fiestas mayores». The banquet is not only nouristiment but a performance as well.

Material y Métodos: Se estudiaron 564 mujeres de 13 comunidades rurales, se les pesó y midió, y se les aplicó un cuestionario. Resultados: Según el IMC, 33% de las mujeres fueron clasificadas con normopeso; 9.6% con delgadez; 29.4% con sobrepeso; y 28% con obesidad. Las mujeres se percibieron más delgadas, a diferencia de otras investigaciones, y les gustaría ser más delgadas. Discusión: Se resalta la elevada prevalencia de sobrepeso y obesidad de las mujeres de estas zonas. El “desagrado hacia su cuerpo”, relacionado con el aspecto estético, muestra un aumento en la preocupación por el cuerpo en mujeres de las comunidades rurales. Conclusiones: Se considera que la inclusión de temas como la percepción y el ideal corporal en los programas de alimentación y nutrición es relevante para prevenir trastornos de la alimentación. De igual manera, los significados que tienen para las mujeres el acto de comer o no comer determinados alimentos o productos “buenos para transformar el cuerpo” son centrales para la programación de las acciones o estrategias en este campo.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTOS: Se pretende conocer las características de los hábitos higiénicos en las personas mayores de 65 años que no presentan deterioro cognitivo, de la provincia de Guadalajara, residentes en la comunidad y a partir de la hipótesis que estos son deficientes y por ello mejorables. MÉTODOS: Se trata de un estudio observacional, analítico transversal, en el marco de la Atención Primaria, diferenciando ámbito urbano y rural. Se encuestó mediante cuestionario (con pilotaje previo y estudio de fiabilidad mediante análisis de estabilidad en las respuestas a partir de coeficiente kappa, a las personas de una muestra aleatoria estratificada, polietápica y proporcional según edad, sexo y núcleos de población. Analizamos las variables: A Hábitos higiénicos: a.- Higiene personal-aseo diario: Procedimiento y periodicidad, Cuidados del cabello; Lavado de manos siempre antes de comer y después de ir al servicio; Afeitado en varones; Higiene bucodental, b.- Higiene del sueño, B Variables sociodemográficas. Efectuamos análisis de datos mediante procedimientos propios de la estadística descriptiva, analítica y multivariante por regresión logística. RESULTADOS: La pérdida de sujetos de la muestra osciló entre el 16 y 26% (la negativa aparece como primera causa en el medio rural y la no localización en el medio urbano. La muestra finalmente estudiada incluyó a 388 personas en medio rural y 392 en el urbano. La mitad utilizan la ducha y lavan el cabello al menos una vez en semana. Hasta el 15% no se lavan las manos siempre antes de ir a comer y hasta el 44% no lo hacen después de ir al servicio. Mas del 50% de los varones se afeitan según el procedimiento correcto. Un alto porcentaje de edéntulos, tanto parciales como totales, no utilizan prótesis y en aquellos que sí lo hacen la higiene es defectuosa. CONCLUSIONES: Los hábitos higiénicos en las personas ancianas de nuestra provincia son manifiestamente mejorables en todos

    Resumimos en este trabajo nuestra experiencia en el tratamiento quirúrgico de la parálisis facial y que comprende una serie de 203 intervenciones que hemos tenido oportunidad de practicar hasta Mayo de 1980. Esta casuística ha sido seleccionada en pacientes de nuestra clientela privada y en aquellos pacientes atendidos en los servicios sociales del Hospital San José, Dpto de Otorrinolaringología, algunos de ellos operados por el personal de nuestro departamento. El número total de intervenciones quirúrgicas de hueso temporal practicadas en estos 26 años en el Instituto de Cirugía del Oído y en el Hospital San José asciende
    a 5.345 de las cuales 203 corresponden a Cirugía del Nervio Facial, no solo en su trayecto timpánico y mastoideo sino en su trayecto laberintico. Durante los primeros 10 años de nuestra práctica audioquirúrgica fueron muy escasas las intervenciones practicadas, bien por el temor de los pacientes a aceptar esta cirugía o bien por la falta de referencia o confianza de otros especialistas. Con los progresos de la moderna cirugía y la mejoria en
    nuestros resultados la confianza ha renacido y es así como en los últimos 3 años hemos tenido oportunidad de operar cerca de 30 pacientes.

    La mayor parte de nuestra casuística corresponde a lesiones idiopáticas de Bell, en un 80% de los casos, un 10% de lesiones post-traumáticas y el resto a otro tipo de patología. La vida moderna y los riesgos a los cuales estamos sometidos hace que las lesiones del nervio facial sean cada día más frecuentes, por accidentes de trabajo, deportes (equitación, boxeo, natación, esquí, etc', heridas con armas de fuego, accidentes de tráfico y también
    lesiones iatrogénicas por la práctica de intervenciones

    Full Text Available Presque trois ans après le début de l''affaire Tierney', controverse qui a fait couler beaucoup d'encre à l'exception notable du monde francophone, l'heure est venue d'en dresser le bilan (au moins provisoire. Cet article propose donc un résumé critique de cette singulière polémique: l'ouvrage Darkness in El Dorado et les réactions qu'il a suscitées sont ici examinés. Notre attention va plus particulièrement porter sur un thème central: la pénétration des objets manufacturés occidentaux parmi les Yanomami et ses - conséquences. Par l'étude de question dépassant cependant la seule 'yanomamologie'- la guerre indigène, la rétribution des informateurs, etc.-, cette focalisation permettra notamment de remettre en cause plusieurs conclusion de Tierney et de critiquer les sources dont il fait un usage abondant. Les conséquences de cette controverse pou l'éthique anthropologique seront finalement exposées. EPIDEMIAS, ARTÍCULOS MANUFACTURADOS, GUERRAS... Y LA ÉTICA EN DISCUSIÓN: NOTA SOBRE EL CASO TIERNEY. Casi tres años después del comienzo de la “polémica Tierney”, controversia que ha hecho derramar mucha tinta, con notable excepción del mundo francófono sobre el particular, ya es hora de hacer un balance al menos de caracter provisorio. Este artículo quiere proponer un resumen crítico de esta polémica: Darkness in El Dorado y los comentarios que ha originado están examinados. La atención está particularmente centrada sobre un tema esencial del libro: la introducción de artículos manufacturados occidentales entre los Yanomami y sus consecuencias. Con el estudio de temas que adelantan la ‘yanomamologia’ -la guerra indígena, la retribución de los informantes, etc.-, esta focalización puede, entre otras cosas, cuestionar las conclusiones de Tierney y criticar las fuentes utilizadas por este autor. Por último, las consecuencias de esta controversia para la ética antropológica están expuestas. EPIDEMICS, ITEMS, WARS... AND ETHIC UNDER DISCUSSION: A NOTE ABOUT TIERNEY AFFAIR. Since it first started over three years ago, the so-called “Tierney affair” has elicited a spectacular amount of commentary throughout the world. However, the French-speaking public has been poorly informed about the controversy surrounding Darkness in Eldorado and the reactions it provoked. This paper attempts to fill in this gap. Emphasis is placed on one of the book’s central themes: the consequences of the massive introduction of manufactured goods among the Yanomami. The validity of many of Tierney’s assumptions, as well as his questionable use of written sources, will be examined in the light of general Amazonian ethnology, especially regarding such questions as native warfare and the impact of informant retribution. The implications of this controversy for anthropological ethics is also highlighted here.

  13. Je veux bien, mais me citerez-vous? On publication language strategies in an anglicized research landscape

    2016-07-01

    The pressure to publish in science’s lingua franca is linked to a common belief that this choice will cause the research to be more readily indexed, accessed, read, used, and cited. However, the use of a national language can be marketed as a source of distinction for institutions located in countries or nations where English is not the primary language. This study looks to understand publication-language practices in the social sciences and humanities by examining the publication strategies of three nations, including a stateless nation: Germany, France, and Québec. The data were extracted from the Social Sciences Citation Index and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index and comprise 3.7 million articles, notes and reviews published between 1980 and 2014. The rise of English and decline of other languages is staggering and follows the same tendency in Germany and France, reaching just over 80% in each case. Québec differs slightly because the percentage of papers published in English was already quite high in 1980; nevertheless, the proportion has also risen, now reaching over 90%. Impact follows suit: for each of the three nations, papers published in English gather, on average, three times as many citations as they national-language counterparts. Given the reign of impact indicators and the symbolic capital granted to citations in the current scientific context, the data reveal that opting for English-centric publication strategies pays off. However, this raises questions fundamental to science, the symbolic capital associated with language, and the effects of language-based strategies on research. (Author)

    Full Text Available The embezzling of European communities funds is an important problem included in all criminal legislations from the European countries. This approach has been developed both trough the embezzling of the obtained funds, and also through the embezzling of a specific legal interest. As to the financial communitarian interests in the expenses domain changing the destination of the obtained funds means to use these previously legally obtained funds for other purposes than those originally meant. In Greece and Ireland this fraud of illegal redirection of funds is one of the potential expressions of fraudulent behavior that is provided in specific laws or specific provisions in the criminal code through frauds related to aids and incentives. In these countries changing the destination for funds that cannot be regarded as aids or incentives is not subjected to the provisions of the criminal law unless it has the elements of the breach of trust. In criminal codes from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain and Sweden this fraudulent behavior related to the change of destination for funds is provided in specific stipulations different from those related to the fraud committed either by presenting false, inaccurate or incomplete documents or statements, or by avoiding to present information. The French criminal law stipulates this change of destination for funds as a crime related to the breach of trust. Unlike the other member states, none of the Great Britain jurisdictions stipulates a specific crime related to this fraud of changing the destination for funds. As for the communitarian financial interests related to incomes, frauds in the field of changing the destination for a legally obtained interest has to be followed by the unlawful assignment of some funds or the unlawful retaining of these funds. At the same time the resources of the European communities budgets are diminished. In Denmark, Greece, Spain, Ireland and Luxembourg changing the destination for a legally obtained interest is one of the potential types of fraudulent behavior provided in the criminal law in respect of the communitarian incomes.In Germany, Italy, France, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal and Finland tax fraud, regardless of the unique regulation in one or more specific laws, related to the customs regulations and the VAT, is defined in such a way as the fraudulent behavior is defined by any avoidance to indicate any change in the circumstances that can lead either to the illegally obtained funds, or to the unlawful retaining of these funds. This will result in the illegal decrease of the communitarian resources. In Romania the criminal provisions related to the embezzling of funds or interests are included in the art.18, par. 1,2, 3, Law no.78/2000. This fraud is directed at the social relations correlated with the financial discipline within the EU. Compliance with this discipline means to use the funds and the legally obtained interests in compliance with the legal provisions in force. This crime consists of affecting the money or the legally obtained interests by changing the destination for these funds. The crime of embezzling funds consists of changing the destination of the money, hence using it for other purposes than intended. Unlike the embezzlement of legally obtained interests, the crime of embezzling funds does not necessarily imply that the money is legally obtained.

    Full Text Available Since the outbreak of the Balkan war, three major events have taken place in what regards the protection of cultural property in armed conflict: the adoption of the Statute of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia which gives this court jurisdiction to try crimes against cultural and religious property; the approval of the Second Protocol to confirm and upgrade the obligations of the "1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict"; and, finally, the "2003 UNESCO Declaration concerning the Intentional Destruction of Cultural Heritage" motivated by the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan in 2001. While the latter two instruments have been exhaustively examined in scholarly literature, no updated study of the ICTY case-law exists yet. In this paper I go through all such cases and underline the following idea: the interpretation of ICTY has given rise to an involution and an evolution vis-à-vis the treaty law for the protection of cultural property in armed conflict; as well as to a doctrinal revolution by linking the destruction of cultural and religious property to the crimes of persecution and genocide. Since the interpretation of the ICTY largely diverges from the treatment afforded to cultural property in treaty law, I conclude that the protection of cultural property in armed conflict has by now a double life: one conventional and one jurisprudential

    Full Text Available Hume reacted against egoism, rationalism, teleology and the religious elements contained in moral proposals. He places feelings in first place along with the spontaneous generation of a legal order issuing from them. Yet, many texts of this philosopher point at the need of reconsidering order (and beauty, finality and the role of reason in the realm of actions. His brilliant description of virtues goes beyond what this alleged spontaneity propounds, but it does not supersede the spectator’s (“third person” perspective, and it also fails to provide away for the acquisition of the stable dispositions of character.

According to its author, the book was ‘an illustration of the benefits conferred on men by guardian angels […], and also of the ploys and challenges of demons.’ Nevertheless the prominence of demons was much more obvious. It is important to notice that the treatise reflected the author´s intense experience in the mountains near Jaca during the time he spent as a parish priest, when a serious epidemic of demonic possession broke out. It was to last five years, and sixty-two women were allegedly affected.En 1652 salió a la luz un libro con el expresivo título de Patrocinio de ángeles y combate de demonios. De acuerdo con su autor se trataba de una «ilustración de los beneficios que hazen los angeles de la guarda a los hombres […], y también de las astucias y impugnaciones de los demonios.» No obstante, el protagonismo de los demonios era mucho mayor. No hay que olvidar que el tratado incorporaba la intensa experiencia vivida por el autor del libro en las montañas de Jaca durante su período como párroco al declararse una grave epidemia de posesión demoníaca que se prolongó durante cinco años y que afectó a sesenta y dos mujeres.

    The Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan(NREPRP) describes the capabilities, responsibilities and authorities of government agencies and a conceptual basis for integrating the activities of these agencies to protect public health and safety. The NREPRP addresses issues related to actual or perceived radiation hazard requiring a national response in order to: i. Provide co-ordination of a response involving multi-jurisdictions or significant national responsibilities; or ii. Provide national support to state and local governments. The objective of this research is to establish Guidance Manual for preparing a timely, organized and coordinated emergency response plan for Authorities/agencies to promptly and adequately determine and take actions to protect members of the public and emergency workers. The manual will not provide sufficient details for an adequate response. This level of details is contained in standard operating procedures that are being developed based on the plan developed. Base on the data obtain from integrated planning levels and responsibility sharing, the legal document of major government agencies participating in NREPRP form the legal basis for the response plan. Also the following documents should be some international legal binding documents. Base on the international safety requirement and some countries well developed NREPRP, we have drafted a guidance manual for new comer countries for easy development of their countries NREPRP. Also we have taken in to consideration lessons learn from most accident especially Fukushima accident.

    Petroleum production and its supply and demand require ever closer coordinations among the countries involved. On the other hand, however, there a large number of difficult questions as the problems of global environmental pollution and greenhouse effects increase their seriousness and the economic resources in the petroleum business become scarcer. This paper describes the current state of the Japanese petroleum development, the necessity of spontaneous petroleum development, the international trends in the petroleum development business, and the tasks for Japan in the petroleum development business. Japan is a late comer in the petroleum development business. There are such difficulties as sizes of oil fields being discoverd are becoming smaller, the natural conditions in development target areas are getting severer, and the economic effects are inferior. Japan, whose petroleum self-supply rate is about 0.3%, whose petroleum dependency is heightening as a result of increase in nuclear power generation, and who is the third largest petroleum consuming country next to the U.S.A and Soviet, must use efficiently her financial and technical powers to vitalize her spontaneous petroleum development. Japan has a duty to contribute to the world {prime}s future stabilized supply of oil. The Japanese Government has launched the five-year fund development plan to perform basic surveys for ail in the north-east part of the Japan Sea and the pacific Ocean.

  11. Shear strength in corner region of reinforced concrete duct type structures to be embedded in soil

    Aoyagi, Y.; Endo, T.

    1993-01-01

    Reinforced concrete ducts for accommodating emergency cooling water pipes are generally embedded in soil. The structures is classified as one of the most important structures in terms of earthquake resistant design. During a strong earthquake it is subjected to shear deformations in concerted movement with surrounding soil. The comer regions of the duct should be designed against shear with moment combined. However, the complicated stress conditions in the region render the design more intricate in comparison with the case of simple determinate RC beam type structures. With the above situation in mind an experimental study was conducted, in which prototype as well as one half scale models representing the stress conditions in the region of interest were loaded and brought to failure in shear. The cross section of the prototype test model without shear reinforcements was 60 (height) x 30cm (width), and the tensile reinforcement ratio was 2.58%. The following results were obtained within the limit of the experimental study. (1) The shear capacity predicted by Japanese Design Code for linear RC members over-estimated the experimental ones with a considerably large safety margin of 4.4-5.0. (2) An improved design procedure to be applied to the specific structure was proposed, which gave a reasonable safety factor against shear failure of 1.7-2.0. (3) Combined smeared and discrete cracking model was utilized to simulate the shear failure mechanism, which could realistically pursue experimental behaviors. (author)

There were over 60 media from around the world present at CERN for the event, and some 900 reports in the media over the following days. Some weeks before, Sony pictures held a press event for their upcoming movie, Angels and Demons, part of which takes place at CERN. That happened during the same week that we published the new LHC schedule, and it was the LHC that got the most media coverage. So what does this mean for how we carry out our daily work? Particle physics has always operated in a fully open and transparent way. It’s in our DNA to do so. Meetings are open to all comers, and it is important that we continue to foster such a culture of transparency. Nevertheless, we need to be aware that we are much more in the public spotlight than ever before....

By focusing a high-power laser on a small target composed of these materials, high energy and density states can be produced. In the past decade or so, various new target fabrication techniques have been developed by many laboratories that use high energy lasers and consequently, many publications and reviews followed these developments. However, the emphasis so far has been on targets that did not utilize low density porous materials. This review therefore, attempts to redress this balance and endeavors to review low density materials used in laser plasma experiments in recent years. The emphasis of this review will be on aspects of low density materials that are of relevance to high energy laser plasma experiments. Aspects of low density materials such as densities, elemental compositions, macroscopic structures, nanostructures, and characterization of these materials will be covered. Also, there will be a brief mention of how these aspects affect the results in laser plasma experiments and the constrictions that these requirements put on the fabrication of low density materials relevant to this field. This review is written from the chemists' point of view to aid physicists and the new comers to this field.

    Demand for electricity is rapidly increasing thereby applying pressure to expand generation and distribution capacity worldwide. The expansion of traditional services not only imposes burdens on financial resources but also encounters many challenges from community residents who oppose the construction of new power generation plants or transmission facilities in their backyard. From the integrated resource planning point of view, a feasible and economical remedy is, therefore, to utilize existing dispersed generation capacity known as distributed generation (DG) and/or renewable energy resources that may exist in the vicinity of the load centers. The main criteria for selecting the type of fuel source for a DG is its local availability, conversion system technological advancement, impact on the environment, and operating cost. DG’s have existed in the market for many years. Large diesel or gas powered generation sets are used in stand-by mode to power up vital services such as hospitals, financial and commercial compounds, telecommunication centers and industrial premises. Wind turbines, photovoltaic energy sources, and fuel cells are new comers that are now competing in size and efficiency with many standard generating sets. With this in mind, they are being used in many places not only as stand-by units but as the prime source of power particularly when the $/kWhr rate is high[1-5].

    Among natural biological flocks/swarms or mass social activities, when the collective behavior of the followers has been dominated by the direction or opinion of one leader group, it seems difficult for later-coming leaders to reverse the orientation of the mass followers, especially when they are in quantitative minority. This paper, however, reports a counter-intuitive phenomenon, i.e. Following the Later-coming Minority, provided that the later-comers obey a favorable distribution pattern that enables them to spread their influence to as many followers as possible within a given time and to be dense enough to govern these local followers they can influence directly from the beginning. We introduce a discriminant index to quantify the whole group's orientation under competing leaderships, with which the eventual orientation of the mass followers can be predicted before launching the real dynamical procedure. From the application point of view, this leadership effectiveness index also helps us to design an economical way for the minority later-coming leaders to defeat the dominating majority leaders solely by optimizing their spatial distribution pattern provided that the premeditated goal is available. Our investigation provides insights into effective leadership in biological systems with meaningful implications for social and industrial applications.

    Full Text Available El presente estudio evalúa los efectos del ciclo menstrual de ratas hembra sobre la anorexia por actividad identificando las fases sucesivas del ciclo menstrual, anterior, durante y posterior a las condiciones del pro- cedimiento experimental. El procedimiento de anorexia por actividad se establece exponiendo a las ratas a una restricción de alimento (1 hora y al acceso a una rueda de actividad durante las 23 horas restantes. Como resultado de esta manipulación las ratas rápidamente pierden peso corporal, reducen su consumo de alimento y gradualmente aumentan el nivel de actividad en la rueda de actividad. Datos recientes demues- tran que la restricción de comida y el incremento de la actividad interrumpen el ciclo menstrual y que los factores hormonales afectan al nivel de actividad y al consumo de alimento de las ratas hembra durante algunas de las fases de dicho ciclo. Los resultados mostraron que la actividad aumentó y las hembras per- dieron mayor peso corporal en comparación con las ratas macho. Sin embargo no se encontraron diferen- cias en el consumo de comida ni de agua. Ambos grupos recuperaron su peso inicial después del procedi- miento, las hembras mostraron actividad anticipatoria antes de comer y el ciclo menstrual se alteró durante la fase experimental.

    Full Text Available Resumo O sagrado e o útil encontram-se intimamente associados no Xangô de Pernambuco. O processo de iniciação coincide largamente com a busca da cura, enquanto os sacrifícios são ao mesmo tempo bons para rezar e para comer. Não existe portanto, ao contrário do que poderia pretender uma interpretação demasiadamente literal da sociologia da religião de Durkheim, uma separação radical entre o sagrado e o profano. Há entretanto, na experiência religiosa do Xangô, um momento em que o sagrado paira acima de toda análise funcional, transformando-se desta maneira no mais-que-sagrado, que transparece na festa e no transe extático. E é dessa experiência transcendente, implicando na comunhão emocional do grupo de culto, que surge a identidade mais íntima de cada fiel.

  20. Pressurized thermal shock. Thermo-hydraulic conditions in the CNA-I reactor pressure vessel

    2002-01-01

    In this paper we analyze several reports issued by the Utility (Nucleo Electrica S.A.) and related to Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) phenomena in the CNA-I Nuclear Power Plant. These analyses are aimed at obtaining conclusions and establishing criteria ensuring the RPV integrity. Special attention was given to the effects ECCS cold-water injection at the RPV down-comer leading to pressurized thermal shock scenarios. The results deal with hypothetical primary system pipe breaks of different sizes, the inadvertent opening of the pressurizer safety valve, the double guillotine break of a live steam line in the containment and the inadvertent actuation pressurizer heaters. Modeling conditions were setup to represent experiments performed at the UPTF, under the hypothesis that they are representative of those that, hypothetically, may occur at the CNA-I. No system scaling analysis was performed, so this assertion and the inferred conclusions are no fully justified, at least in principle. The above mentioned studies, indicate that the RPV internal wall surface temperature will be nearly 40 degree. It was concluded that they allowed a better approximation of PTS phenomena in the RPV of the CNA-I. Special emphasis was made on the influence of the ECCS systems on the attained RPV wall temperature, particularly the low-pressure TJ water injection system. Some conservative hypothesis made, are discussed in this report. (author)

    To compare the acute procedure and angiographic outcomes of peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients treated with orbital atherectomy stratified by gender. The CONFIRM I, II, and III registries are US multicenter, nonrandomized, all-comers registries of PAD patients who were treated with orbital atherectomy. All patients with gender specified in the registry database were included in the current analysis, which compared the final residual stenosis achieved after atherectomy and the rate of acute complications in female and male patients. The 3 registries included 3131 patients with 4761 lesions: 1261 women (mean age 73.2 ± 10.7 years) with 1874 lesions and 1870 men (mean age 70.4 ± 10.2) with 2887 lesions. The women were older (p atherectomy in both men and women; however, women had a higher rate of dissection (all types). This difference is likely because of the older age and higher percentage of critical limb ischemia in women in this cohort. These results, however, suggest that additional studies should be completed to further understand the increased risks for women vs. men during endovascular procedures. © The Author(s) 2015.

    The purpose of CONFIRM registry series was to evaluate the use of orbital atherectomy (OA) in peripheral lesions of the lower extremities, as well as optimize the technique of OA. Methods of treating calcified arteries (historically a strong predictor of treatment failure) have improved significantly over the past decade and now include minimally invasive endovascular treatments, such as OA with unique versatility in modifying calcific lesions above and below-the-knee. Patients (3135) undergoing OA by more than 350 physicians at over 200 US institutions were enrolled on an "all-comers" basis, resulting in registries that provided site-reported patient demographics, ABI, Rutherford classification, co-morbidities, lesion characteristics, plaque morphology, device usage parameters, and procedural outcomes. Treatment with OA reduced pre-procedural stenosis from an average of 88-35%. Final residual stenosis after adjunctive treatments, typically low-pressure percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), averaged 10%. Plaque removal was most effective for severely calcified lesions and least effective for soft plaque. Shorter spin times and smaller crown sizes significantly lowered procedural complications which included slow flow (4.4%), embolism (2.2%), and spasm (6.3%), emphasizing the importance of treatment regimens that focus on plaque modification over maximizing luminal gain. The OA technique optimization, which resulted in a change of device usage across the CONFIRM registry series, corresponded to a lower incidence of adverse events irrespective of calcium burden or co-morbidities.

  4. Australia: Population.

    Science.gov (United States)

    The Australian Bureau of Census and Statistics reported on 27 August 1979 that Australia's total population was 14,376,400 at the end of the first quarter of 1979. Net immigration gain during the same period was 12,700. Natural increase was 32,100--births were 57,100 and deaths were 25,000. In January 1979, Australia introduced a new immigration scheme to improve methods of selecting immigrants. Points are awarded on the basis of personal qualities and employability; an applicant must score 60 out of 100. This scheme supersedes the earlier system under which immigrants were selected on the family reunion criterion and employability. Migrants from Britain and Ireland made up the bulk of the new comers, but their proportion has dropped from 50% in the mid-1960s to 30% in early 1979. In contrast, Asian immigrants have risen from 2% to 22% over the same period. Asian immigration began in the mid-1960s with the relaxation of the "White Australia" policy which barred non-European migrants, and increased when the ban was abolished by Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1973.

    Closure activities for three underground storage tanks (USTs) were conducted at Quaker State Corporation's (QSC) former service station in Conneaut, Pennsylvania as part of a property transfer during July, 1991. The facility, formerly owned by QSC, was operated from construction (early 1960's) through the sale of the property (early 1980's). Subsequent to sale of the facility, the property has been resold and the building reconfigured several times. The facility is located on a comer lot located along state highway Route 322 in the business district of Conneaut Lake as shown in Figure 1. Across the highway to the north, is Conneaut lake. The site is bordered by a residential property to the south and commercial properties on the east and west. A Pennsylvania State Game Commission Game Lands, is located approximately 150 feet southeast of the property Quaker State again became involved with the property in 1991 when the cur-rent owner attempted to sell the property and the lender for the prospective purchaser identified the presence of USTs. Subsequent to the confirmation of the USTS, UST closure activities were initiated. Subsurface investigations were conducted to delineate the extent of potential petroleum impacts and corrective actions were initiated which are on-going today

    Postulated severe core damage accidents have a high threat risk for the safety of human health and jeopardize the environment. Versatile measures have been suggested and applied to mitigate severe accidents in nuclear power plants. To improve the thermal margin for the severe accident measures in high-power reactors, engineered corium cooling systems involving boiling-induced two-phase natural circulation have been proposed for decay heat removal. A boiling-induced natural circulation flow is generated in a coolant path between a hot vessel wall and cold coolant reservoir. In general, it is possible for some bubbles to be entrained in the natural circulation loop. If some bubbles entrain in the liquid phase flow passage, flow instability may occur, that is, the natural circulation mass flow rate may be oscillated. A new device to block the entraining bubbles is proposed and verified using air-water test loop. To avoid bubbles entrained in the natural circulation flow loop, a new device was proposed and verified using an air-water test loop. The air injection and liquid circulation loop was prepared, and the tests for the bubble blockage devices were performed by varying the geometry and shape of the devices. The performance of the bubble blockage device was more effective as the area ratio of the inlet to the down-comer increased, and the device height decreased. If the device has a rim to generate a vortex zone, the bubbles will be most effectively blocked

    To assess: the reasons behind an operator choosing to perform radial artery catheterisation (RAC) as against femoral arterial catheterisation, and to explore why RAC may fail in the real world. A pre-determined analysis of PREVAIL study database was performed. Relevant data were collected in a prospective, observational survey of 1,052 consecutive patients undergoing invasive cardiovascular procedures at nine Italian hospitals over a one month observation period. By multivariate analysis, the independent predictors of RAC choice were having the procedure performed: (1) at a high procedural volume centre; and (2) by an operator who performs a high volume of radial procedures; clinical variables played no statistically significant role. RAC failure was predicted independently by (1) a lower operator propensity to use RAC; and (2) the presence of obstructive peripheral artery disease. A 10-fold lower rate of RAC failure was observed among operators who perform RAC for > 85% of their personal caseload than among those who use RAC < 25% of the time (3.8% vs. 33.0%, respectively); by receiver operator characteristic (ROC) analysis, no threshold value for operator RAC volume predicted RAC failure. A routine RAC in all-comers is superior to a selective strategy in terms of feasibility and success rate.

    The introduction of a nuclear energy program is a major undertaking with significant implications for many aspects of national infrastructure, ranging from capacity of the power grid, access roads and production facilities, to the involvement of stakeholders and the development of human resources. For new comers countries without nuclear power, even for those who wish to realize substantial expansion of existing nuclear capacity, it can take up to 10-15 years to develop the necessary infrastructure. One of the crucial problems in nuclear energy implementation are human resources needs and educational infrastructure development in this field. No matter what will be the future energy scenario in the Republic of Macedonia, the nuclear educational program is the first step to have HR in the field of nuclear energy. This paper presents the proposed direction for having HR for establishing national infrastructure in nuclear energy program in Macedonia. This includes establishing and developing of MONEP (Macedonian NEPIO), and the enhancing the capabilities of the national regulatory body in the Republic of Macedonia.

    Largely, Turkey is a hilly and mountainous country. Many rivers rise from the mountains and flow into the seas surrounding the country. Mean while along fertile plains around the rivers and coastal floodplains of Turkey were densely populated than the other parts of the country. These characteristics show that there is a significant relationship between river basins and population or settlements. It is understood from this point of view, Mersin city and its vicinity (coastal floodplain and nearby river basins) show similar relationship. The city of Mersin was built on the southwest comer of Cukurova where Delicay and Efrenk creeks create narrow coastal floodplain. The plain has rich potential for agricultural practices with fertile alluvial soils and suitable climate. However, establishment of the port at the shore have increased commercial activity. Agricultural and commercial potential have attracted people to the area, and eventually has caused rapid spatial expansion of the city, and the urban sprawls over fertile agricultural lands along coastal floodplain and nearby river basins of the city. But unplanned, uncontrolled and illegal urbanization process has been causing degradation of agricultural areas and river basins, and also causing flooding in the city of Mersin and its vicinity. Especially in the basins, urbanization increases impervious surfaces throughout watersheds that increase erosion and runoff of surface water. In this study, the city of Mersin and its vicinity are examined in different ways, such as land use, urbanization, morphology and flows of the streams and given some directions for suitable urbanization.

    Full Text Available A partir de la constatación clínica de la alta incidencia de anorexia entre las jóvenes, el presente trabajo se aboca a la investigación de las relaciones entre el síntoma anoréxico y la feminidad. Nuestra hipótesis es que el síntoma anoréxico configura la respuesta de algunas jóvenes ante las consecuencias de la sexuación y del encuentro con el goce femenino. Se cuestiona la continuidad entre la anorexia infantil, en la cual el comer nada aparece como objeto separador, y la anorexia como respuesta al goce femenino y a las dificultades que acarrea la sexuación. Analizamos las contribuciones freudianas respecto a la asunción del sexo y la retomada de esta problemática emprendida por Lacan, que disloca el falocentrismo freudiano, proponiendo la lógica del no-todo, propio al goce femenino, correlativo a la posición femenina. Como consecuencia, el artículo sostiene que algunas anorexias en adolescentes y jóvenes corresponden a un rechazo de este goce Otro que irrumpe el cuerpo.

They first started with their own presentation before sitting together at the discussion panel. Tarik Choho explained that there are many opportunities for new builds around the world, and especially in new comer countries. Thomas Koshy brought his expert point of view as an international regulator. He showed that the technology landscape also includes new designs as well as non-electricity generation uses. Those two aspects could bring both opportunities and challenges for licensing. Tony Ward showed how difficult it was to finance such a capitalistically intensive project as a new build, and how one could try to find an electricity retail price which is acceptable for both the general private consumer and the plant operator. All speakers agreed that preparation was core to a nuclear new build project. They also pointed out that every project involves more and more actors, and that it could be challenging to let everyone have the appropriate say

    The aim of our study was to assess knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) regarding HIV/AIDS in the city of Kribi, southern region of Cameroon. In November 2012, a questionnaire composed of 20 items was administered by trained staff from the Biomedical Sciences Department of the University of Dschang to 200 students selected from four population groups: high school students, local traders, tourism personnel (staff of bars, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs), and motorcycle taxi drivers. A cluster sampling method was used to select the first three groups while motorcycle taxi drivers were selected by the method of all comers. KAP regarding HIV/AIDS was found to be fragmentary in the studied population. Only 6.5% systematically uses condoms, 59% believe that AIDS can be cured by traditional medicine and religious faith and 40.9% developed stigmatizing behaviour toward HIV infected people. Among participants there is a wide discrepancy between knowledge and social behaviours toward HIV/AIDS. Strategic and continuous awareness campaigns that are culturally and socially tailored are urgently needed.

    Full Text Available The aim of the present paper is to map the development of women’s and gender studies (WGS in the academic field in Slovenia. Slovenia is the first of the former Yugoslav state republics in which WGS have succeeded in entering the academic field and becoming part of institutionalised university study. In this paper we will ask the following questions: How, when and why did this happen? How was this connected to women’s and feminist movements and politics regarding women’s issues and demands? What were the obstacles in this process? Who were the agents and what were the factors that supported demands for the incorporation of WGS in academia? How has the field evolved in the last few decades? What were the phases of this development? Which fields were the forerunners, which were the late-comers and which are still left aside? What are the thematic scopes taught in WGS courses? In which degrees are the courses offered and what are their modules? Who teaches them? The mapping in this paper is mainly based on primary sources of university programmes and their curricula at faculties of the University of Ljubljana, as well as on interviews with important agents in the field.

    Poland appears as a new-comer in the domain of nuclear power but in fact previous projects of nuclear power plants existed but were abruptly stopped in the afterwards of Chernobyl. Today almost 90% of the electricity produced in Poland comes from the combustion of coal and lignite. In january 2009 the Polish government decided to include nuclear power in the energy mix with an aim of a 15% share of the electricity production in 2030 and with the first nuclear plant operating in 2020. The path toward this aim is marked out as following. 2009-2010: drawing up of the legal frame, creation of the nuclear safety authority, drawing up of the list of potential sites, and launching of the public debate. 2011-2013: selection of the first site, of the pool of investors, of the reactor technology and the signature of the contract for the first plant. 2014-2015: obtention of the administrative agreements, elaboration of the technical project. 2016-2020: construction of the plant. The polish public opinion favours nuclear energy and there is a kind of competition between different regions to home nuclear power plants. In 2010 Poland signed various collaboration agreements with the Usa, France and South-Korea. Polish authorities are studying the pros and cons of the EPR (EDF - Areva), ABWR (GE/Hitachi) and AP1000 (Westinghouse) reactors. (A.C.)

    Near-fault ground motions, potentially with large amplitude and typical velocity pulses, may significantly impact the performance of a wide range of structures. The current study is aimed at evaluating the safety implications of the near-fault effect on nuclear power plant facilities designed according to the Chinese code. To this end, a set of near-fault ground motions at rock sites with typical forward-directivity effect is examined with special emphasis on several key parameters and response spectra. Spectral comparison of the selected records with the Chinese and other code design spectra was conducted. The bi-normalized response spectra in terms of different comer periods are utilized to derive nuclear design spectra. It is concluded that nuclear design spectra on rock sites derived from typical rupture directivity records are significantly influenced both by the earthquake magnitude and the rupture distance. The nuclear design spectra specified in the code needs to be adjusted to reflect the near-fault directivity effect of large earthquakes.

    The Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan(NREPRP) describes the capabilities, responsibilities and authorities of government agencies and a conceptual basis for integrating the activities of these agencies to protect public health and safety. The NREPRP addresses issues related to actual or perceived radiation hazard requiring a national response in order to: i. Provide co-ordination of a response involving multi-jurisdictions or significant national responsibilities; or ii. Provide national support to state and local governments. The objective of this research is to establish Guidance Manual for preparing a timely, organized and coordinated emergency response plan for Authorities/agencies to promptly and adequately determine and take actions to protect members of the public and emergency workers. The manual will not provide sufficient details for an adequate response. This level of details is contained in standard operating procedures that are being developed based on the plan developed. Base on the data obtain from integrated planning levels and responsibility sharing, the legal document of major government agencies participating in NREPRP form the legal basis for the response plan. Also the following documents should be some international legal binding documents. Base on the international safety requirement and some countries well developed NREPRP, we have drafted a guidance manual for new comer countries for easy development of their countries NREPRP. Also we have taken in to consideration lessons learn from most accident especially Fukushima accident

    The Chocolate BAR study is a prospective multicenter post-market registry designed to evaluate the safety and performance of the Chocolate percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloon catheter in a broad population with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease. The primary endpoint is acute procedural success (defined as ≤30% residual stenosis without flow-limiting dissection); secondary long-term outcomes include freedom from target lesion revascularization (TLR), major unplanned amputation, survival, and patency. A total of 262 patients (290 femoropopliteal lesions) were enrolled at 30 US centers between 2012 and 2014. The primary endpoint of procedure success was achieved in 85.1% of cases, and freedom from stenting occurred in 93.1%. Bail out stenting by independent adjudication occurred in 1.6% of cases and there were no flow limiting dissections. There was mean improvement of 2.1 Rutherford classes (±1.5) at 12-months, with 78.5% freedom from TLR, 97.2% freedom from major amputation, and 93.3% freedom from all-cause mortality. Core Lab adjudicated patency was 64.1% at 12 months. Use of the Chocolate balloon in an "all-comers" population achieved excellent procedural outcomes with low dissection rates and bailout stent use. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  10. Segmented Mirror Image Degradation Due to Surface Dust, Alignment and Figure

    1999-01-01

    In 1996 an algorithm was developed to include the effects of surface roughness in the calculation of the point spread function of a telescope mirror. This algorithm has been extended to include the effects of alignment errors and figure errors for the individual elements, and an overall contamination by surface dust. The final algorithm builds an array for a guard-banded pupil function of a mirror that may or may not have a central hole, a central reflecting segment, or an outer ring of segments. The central hole, central reflecting segment, and outer ring may be circular or polygonal, and the outer segments may have trimmed comers. The modeled point spread functions show that x-tilt and y-tilt, or the corresponding R-tilt and theta-tilt for a segment in an outer ring, is readily apparent for maximum wavefront errors of 0.1 lambda. A similar sized piston error is also apparent, but integral wavelength piston errors are not. Severe piston error introduces a focus error of the opposite sign, so piston could be adjusted to compensate for segments with varying focal lengths. Dust affects the image principally by decreasing the Strehl ratio, or peak intensity of the image. For an eight-meter telescope a 25% coverage by dust produced a scattered light intensity of 10(exp -9) of the peak intensity, a level well below detectability.

    The purpose of this calculation is to determine the sensitivity of the structural response of the Naval waste packages to varying inner cavity dimensions when subjected to a comer drop and tip-over from elevated surface. This calculation will also determine the sensitivity of the structural response of the Naval waste packages to the upper bound of the naval canister masses. The scope of this document is limited to reporting the calculation results in terms of through-wall stress intensities in the outer corrosion barrier. This calculation is intended for use in support of the preliminary design activities for the license application design of the Naval waste package. It examines the effects of small changes between the naval canister and the inner vessel, and in these dimensions, the Naval Long waste package and Naval Short waste package are similar. Therefore, only the Naval Long waste package is used in this calculation and is based on the proposed potential designs presented by the drawings and sketches in References 2.1.10 to 2.1.17 and 2.1.20. All conclusions are valid for both the Naval Long and Naval Short waste packages

    The area considered (about 1100 ha) is situated on the Swiss shore of Lake Constance and is infested with two cockchafer species (Melolontha vulgaris Fabr. and M. hippocastani Fabr.). The dynamics of the cockchafer population were followed from 1955 to 1967, Estimates of the cockchafer population were obtained by: (1) soil sampling for adults; (2) soil sampling for white grubs; (3) observation of flight, activity and assessing damage on preferred food trees; (4) capture-recapture method with the aid of marked adults in spring 1967. Estimates were made several limes with the isotopic dilution technique. Throughout the flight period 1967 the occurrence of adults was observed along the border of the Guettingerwald. Preferred food trees were regularly inspected and changes of preference with season were noted. Crepuscular flight activity of adults was watched at exposed comers of the wood. Changes in the flight direction during the period of observation were related to sex ratios in samples taken the following morning and compared with the developmental stage of the ovaries. Beetles were collected by shaking the host trees at dawn, and weight and volume of the samples were registered. Four therapeutical X-ray units potentially utilizable for irradiating beetles are available within 35 km. The nearest facility, 5 km away, was tested for its daily capacity. (author)

    In this article the results of the design of a pressure vessel of a BWR/5 similar to the type of Laguna Verde NPP are presented, using the Trace code. A thermo hydraulics Vessel component capable of simulating the behavior of fluids and heat transfer that occurs within the reactor vessel was created. The Vessel component consists of a three-dimensional cylinder divided into 19 axial sections, 4 azimuthal sections and two concentric radial rings. The inner ring is used to contain the core and the central part of the reactor, while the outer ring is used as a down comer. Axial an azimuthal divisions were made with the intention that the dimensions of the internal components, heights and orientation of the external connections match the reference values of a reactor BWR/5 type. In the model internal components as, fuel assemblies, steam separators, jet pumps, guide tubes, etc. are included and main external connections as, steam lines, feed-water or penetrations of the recirculation system. The model presents significant simplifications because the object is to keep symmetry between each azimuthal section of the vessel. In most internal components lack a detailed description of the geometry and initial values of temperature, pressure, fluid velocity, etc. given that it only considered the most representative data, however with these simulations are obtained acceptable results in important parameters such as the total flow through the core, the pressure in the vessel, percentage of vacuums fraction, pressure drop in the core and the steam separators.

    2004-09-01

    It is possible to obtain a 2 dimensional (2D) image of a volume conductor, to locate a few widely separated objects, by driving ac constant currents through two orthogonal pairs of electrodes and measuring the resulting potential differences between several diagonally placed electrodes at the centre and back-projecting their impedance values along equi-potential lines. This has been termed as Pigeon Hole Imaging (PHI). Experimental verification has been attempted using a small insulating object placed at different locations in a saline filled 2D phantom. For a 6 x 6 matrix, the image in 16 pixels in close proximity of the diagonal along which electrodes are arranged, coincide with the object positions, while they do nt for the remaining 20 pixels. We applied a new technique where image smearing patterns have been used to correct the images in 14 of these pixels while 6 pixels near the two opposite comers still remain uncertain. Thus 30 pixels out of 36 give the right object position which may be termed a success. The concept may be extended further to higher order matrices by increasing the number of diagonal electrodes. The present work mainly concentrates on the feasibility of localization of a single small object in one matrix position of the image. (author)

    Five experiments are conducted to study the effect of liquid nitrogen flow rate on the solidification of stagnant water inside a horizontal stainless steel tube of inner diameter 19.6 cm and 12 mm thick. This tube simulates the down-comer of the nuclear reactor ET-R R-1. The apparatus design is mentioned more detail description. The results show that for the first experiment where the liquid nitrogen flow rate is 30 1/hr, the progress of solidification of water has stopped at a diameter of 12 cm. By increasing the flow rate from 30 1/hr to 40,50 and 60 1/hr, the time of freezing the water inside the tube is decreased from 86 to 67 and 60 minutes respectively. By increasing the liquid nitrogen flow rate to 70 1/hr, there is no much effect on the time of frozen. In all experiments, where the solidification is happened, the ice block formed inside the tube is subjected to a pressure of 3 at mg least, and is succeed to withstand this pressure without any leak. 7 figs

    Introduction Electronic dance music (EDM) festivals represent a unique subset of mass-gathering events with limited guidance through literature or legislation to guide mass-gathering medical care at these events. Hypothesis/Problem Electronic dance music festivals pose unique challenges with increased patient encounters and heightened patient acuity under-estimated by current validated casualty predication models. This was a retrospective review of three separate EDM festivals with analysis of patient encounters and patient transport rates. Data obtained were inserted into the predictive Arbon and Hartman models to determine estimated patient presentation rate and patient transport rates. The Arbon model under-predicted the number of patient encounters and the number of patient transports for all three festivals, while the Hartman model under-predicted the number of patient encounters at one festival and over-predicted the number of encounters at the other two festivals. The Hartman model over-predicted patient transport rates for two of the three festivals. Electronic dance music festivals often involve distinct challenges and current predictive models are inaccurate for planning these events. The formation of a cohesive incident action plan will assist in addressing these challenges and lead to the collection of more uniform data metrics.

    The Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority (HAEA) in 2014 carried out a self-assessment in order to preparation for IAEA IRRS mission. As a result of the SWOT analysis it was concluded that for the promotion, development and improvement of safety culture at the HAEA is displayed only on the policy level. In order to obtain a greater emphasis on safety culture within the organization a working group was created. The task of the working group was to define the proposed actions to develop the organizational safety culture. The working group reviewed the current situation, the international experiences and proposed on this basis the elaboration of a guideline regarding to organizational safety culture, to integrate this guideline into the organizational training program so as to apply to all levels of the organization and presentation of the safety culture as part of the training of new comers. Results so far: The working group has defined the main tasks and the connecting milestones in order to develop and improve the organizational safety culture at the HAEA. HAEA has elaborated a guideline for performing safety culture self-assessment based on IAEA and other relevant documents.

The turnout of population from Java in Lampung was a part of the program of development distribution and poverty alleviation in Indonesia. The impact of the arrival of Javanese to Lampung is the marginalization of indigenous lands in Lampung. The lands in Lampung have been largely controlled by the new comers and the plantation companies growing in Lampung. The relationship between Javanese and Lampung ethnic groups has also given an effect to this marginalization. The research used qualitative method with ethnographic approach. The data were collected through in-depth interviews and participative observation. The results of this investigation indicate that the marginalization of land belonging to Lampung ethnic group occurs in such a way that not realized by the Lampungnese or may due to the change of the views of Lampungnese on the meaning of "power”. A power over a land has no longer described the real power, but the power in the political system and the local bureaucracy does. Lampung ethnic group also experienced extinction in the culture, except the identity of the "self-esteem" which has been actualized in form of power in local politics.

    Elevated heart rate (HR) is associated with mortality in a number of heart diseases. We examined the long-term prognostic significance of HR at discharge in a contemporary population of patients with stable angina (SAP), non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS), and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) revascularized with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Patients from the BASKET-PROVE trial, an 11-center randomized all-comers trial comparing bare-metal and drug-eluting stenting in large coronary vessels, were included. Discharge HR was determined from a resting ECG. Long-term outcomes (7 days to 2 years) were evaluated for all-cause mortality and cardiovascular death and non-fatal myocardial infarction. A total of 2029 patients with sinus rhythm were included, 722 (35.6%) SAP, 647 (31.9%) NSTE-ACS, and 660 (32.5%) STEMI. Elevated discharge HR was associated significantly with all-cause mortality: when compared to a reference of 90 bpm. For cardiovascular death/myocardial infarction, a discharge HR >90 bpm was associated with a hazard ratio of 6.2 (2.5-15.5, pacute coronary syndromes an elevated discharge HR was independently associated with poor prognosis. Conversely, a HR <60 bpm at discharge was associated with a good long-term prognosis irrespective of indication for PCI. © 2013.

    A prototype design for a plutonium air transport package capable of carrying 7.6 kg of plutonium oxide and surviving a ''worst-case'' plane crash has been developed by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) for the Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute (JNC). A series of impact tests were conducted on half-scale models of this design for side, end, and comer orientations at speeds close to 282 m/s onto a target designed to simulate weathered sandstone. These tests were designed to evaluate the performance of the overpack concept and impact-limiting materials in critical impact orientations. The impact tests of the Perforated Metal Air Transportable Package (PMATP) prototypes were performed at SNL's 10,000-ft rocket sled track. This report describes test facilities calibration and environmental testing methods of the PMATP under specific test conditions. The tests were conducted according to the test plan and procedures that were written by the authors and approved by SNL management and quality assurance personnel. The result of these tests was that the half-scale PMATP survived the ''worst-case'' airplane crash conditions, and indicated that a full-scale PMATP, utilizing this overpack concept and these impact-limiting materials, would also survive these crash conditions.

    This study sought to report the final 5 years follow-up of the landmark LEADERS (Limus Eluted From A Durable Versus ERodable Stent Coating) trial. The LEADERS trial is the first randomized study to evaluate biodegradable polymer-based drug-eluting stents (DES) against durable polymer DES. The LEADERS trial was a 10-center, assessor-blind, noninferiority, "all-comers" trial (N = 1,707). All patients were centrally randomized to treatment with either biodegradable polymer biolimus-eluting stents (BES) (n = 857) or durable polymer sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) (n = 850). The primary endpoint was a composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI), or clinically indicated target vessel revascularization within 9 months. Secondary endpoints included extending the primary endpoint to 5 years and stent thrombosis (ST) (Academic Research Consortium definition). Analysis was by intention to treat. At 5 years, the BES was noninferior to SES for the primary endpoint (186 [22.3%] vs. 216 [26.1%], rate ratio [RR]: 0.83 [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.68 to 1.02], p for noninferiority 1 year) and associated composite clinical outcomes.

    The Nuclear Computerized Library for Assessing Reactor Risk (NUCLARR) program is a multiyear effort sponsored by the NRC and is being conducted at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL). The goal of this program is to establish and operate computerized data base management tools for the human reliability data bank specification developed by Comer and Donovan. The NRC and the risk analysis community recognized that implementing a fully functional library would not be feasible, or practical, without the aid of computerized tools for management and manipulation of its data sources. The end users of the NUCLARR can be classified into three categories according to specific needs. The first category is those users interested in reviewing individual data sources for a given situation. The second category of users selects multiple data sources for a specific case, summarizing the information, and performing comparative studies. The last category of users interfaces the NUCLARR with other programming applications, such as other data banks, and simulation models of risk assessment. Project status is provided in the paper

    Full Text Available The solid flow in air-catalyst in circulating fluidized bed was simulated with CFD model to obtain axial and radial distribution. Therefore, project parameters were confirmed and steady state operation condition was improved. Solid holds up axial end radial profiles simulation and comparison with gamma transmission measurements are in a good agreement. The transmission signal from an 241Am radioactive source was evaluated in NaI(Tl detector coupled to multichannel analyzer. This non intrusive measuring set up is installed at riser of a cold pilot unit to determine parameters of FCC catalyst flow at several concentrations. Mass flow rate calculated by combining solid hold up and solid phase velocity measurements was compared with catalyst inlet measured at down-comer. Evaluation in each measured parameter shows that a relative combined uncertainty of 6% in a 95% interval was estimated. Uncertainty analysis took into account a significant correlation in scan riser transmission measurements. An Eulerian approach of CFD model incorporating the kinetic theory of granular flow was adopted to describe the gas–solid two-phase flows in a multizone circulating reactor. Instantaneous and local gas-particle velocity, void fraction and turbulent parameters were obtained and results are shown in 2 D and 3D graphics.

    SMART pressurized water reactor type is different from the existing integral NSSS commercial pressurized water reactor system which is equipped with the main features. In addition, RCS piping is removed and the feature of the SBLOCA is a major design break accident. SWAT (SMART ECC Water Asymmetric Two-phase choking test facility) test facility is to simulate the 2 inch SBLOCA of the SMART using with reduced scale. The Test was performed to produce experimental data for the validation of the TASS/SMR-S thermal hydraulic analysis code, and to investigate the related thermal hydraulic phenomena in the down-comer region during the 2 inch SBLOCA of the safety inject line. The particular phenomena for the observation are ECC bypass and multi-dimensional flow characteristics to verify the effectiveness and performance of the safety injection system. In this paper, the corresponding steady state test conditions, including initial and boundary conditions along with major measuring parameters, and related experimental results were described

    A sharp rise in industrial productivity in Asia countries indicates a rising level of R and D technology. Since Japan has not clearly grasped the R and D ability in these countries, it has not given appropriate personnel/material R and D support to them. Therefore, for the purpose of exactly grasping the R and D ability of Asian countries (Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and India) and studying an effective and appropriate method for R and D cooperation, a survey was conducted of R and D potentials in Asia and R and D support policies of the countries. As a result of the survey, the following are taken up as items to be considered: promotion of exchanges between Tsukuba, etc. in Japan and research/university towns and science parks being constructed in lots of countries, participation of private companies in high-tech joint work in cooperation with Japan, sending information from Japan using internet, etc. and exact grasp of needs at partner side, cooperation given to new comers without asking for research results (use of OB researchers, etc.) 25 refs., 39 figs., 59 tabs.

    In this article the results of the design of a pressure vessel of a BWR/5 similar to the type of Laguna Verde NPP are presented, using the Trace code. A thermo hydraulics Vessel component capable of simulating the behavior of fluids and heat transfer that occurs within the reactor vessel was created. The Vessel component consists of a three-dimensional cylinder divided into 19 axial sections, 4 azimuthal sections and two concentric radial rings. The inner ring is used to contain the core and the central part of the reactor, while the outer ring is used as a down comer. Axial an azimuthal divisions were made with the intention that the dimensions of the internal components, heights and orientation of the external connections match the reference values of a reactor BWR/5 type. In the model internal components as, fuel assemblies, steam separators, jet pumps, guide tubes, etc. are included and main external connections as, steam lines, feed-water or penetrations of the recirculation system. The model presents significant simplifications because the object is to keep symmetry between each azimuthal section of the vessel. In most internal components lack a detailed description of the geometry and initial values of temperature, pressure, fluid velocity, etc. given that it only considered the most representative data, however with these simulations are obtained acceptable results in important parameters such as the total flow through the core, the pressure in the vessel, percentage of vacuums fraction, pressure drop in the core and the steam separators.

    Full Text Available Those organizations developing team activities need to use new methods of analysis, recruitment and socializing activities. Thus, more concern for human resources (HR management implications upon labour force diversity is generated. The impact of organization structure upon HR management is more obvious within international and multinational organizations. Developing knowledge, abilities and skills becomes a long term task of the organization's employees and managers. Continuous development helps both employees and organizations to reach the targets. HR development is a key factor in motivating and keeping the good employees. It will give the employees the chance to hold high level responsabilities, to have more authority, to set targets and measurement indicators and to work in teams. HR development delegates the employees and increases their loyalty. Globalization and fast exchange of working environment determine organizations to invest more money in HR development. Knowing that HR are the fundamental element in the organization success, it has been considered that by analyzing the strategies of recruitment, selection, employment and integration of the new comers into organization, we will find the solution to acquire and keep the most suitable persons for organization in order to get organizational and individual performances.

    This study addresses the technical feasibility of solar energy in industrial process heat (IPH) applications in Mid-America. The study was one of two contracted efforts covering the MASEC 12-state region comprised of: Illinois, Michigan, North Dakota, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin. The results of our study are encouraging to the potential future role of solar energy in supplying process heat to a varied range of industries and applications. We identified and developed Case Study documentation of twenty feasible solar IPH applications covering eight major SIC groups within the Mid-American region. The geographical distribution of these applications for the existing range of solar insolation levels are shown and the characteristics of the applications are summarized. The results of the study include process identification, analysis of process heat requirements, selection of preliminary solar system characteristics, and estimation of system performance and cost. These are included in each of the 20 Case Studies. The body of the report is divided into two primary discussion sections dealing with the Study Methodology employed in the effort and the Follow-On Potential of the identified applications with regard to possible demonstration projects. The 20 applications are rated with respect to their relative overall viability and procedures are discussed for possible demonstration project embarkment. Also, a possible extension of this present feasibility study for late-comer industrial firms expressing interest appears worthy of consideration.

    The parameters of the shape of non-circular cross-section affect not only the process of blasting, but also the design of the tool and the process of drilling as well. In the conditions of open-pit mining, it is reasonable to use a roller cutter to produce a non-circular cross-section of blasting holes. With regard to the roller cutter, the impact of the cross-section shape on the oscillations of the axial force arising upon its rotation is determined. It is determined that a polygonal shape with rounded comers of the borehole walls connections and their convex shape, which ensures a smaller range of the total axial force and the torque deflecting the bit from the axis of its rotation is the rational form of the non-circular cross-section of the borehole in terms of bit design. It has been shown that the ratio of the number of cutters to the number of borehole corners must be taken into account when justifying the shape of the cross-section, both from the point of view of the effectiveness of the explosion action and from the point of view of the rational design of the bit.

However, for those in the adolescent and young adult (AYA age-group of 15–30 years with ALL, there has not been the same degree of improvement. Historically, pediatric and adult providers have utilized different treatment approaches based on clinical trials. However, studies that have compared the outcome of AYA patients with ALL treated on pediatric or adult clinical trials have generally shown substantially better outcomes for this patient population treated with the pediatric trials. Additionally, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been considered as part of intensified therapy for AYA patients with ALL. Herein, we review the outcomes with chemotherapy alone and with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and explore the challenges faced in determining the ideal therapy for the AYA population of patients.

    Full Text Available Batik printing, especially imported batik printing has threatened Indonesian handwritten batik and Indonesian stamp batik. Batik printing, that from the point of view of post-modern aesthetic is called pastiche, is an imitation of Batik that lack of authenticity and orisinality. Ironically, Indonesian people, especially those who live in Jakarta and who always want to preserve Indonesian culture by wearing batik, are often wearing imported Batik printing. This allegedly occurred because majority of people who live in Jakarta are always searching for an identity. They are new comers that come from many Indonesian areas; that had already lost bonding with their origin areas. Therefore they easily fallen into imitation that can provide identitiy –eventhough it’s only an artificial identity- such as batik printing. Batik printing is able to provide an artificial identity by stimulating a nationalist image. People didn’t realize they have been living in fatamorgana of post-modern era. In this era, image becomes very dominant. It constructs reality, an illusive reality. People in Jakarta become concerned only with appearance and style. They have merged into a massive consumption.
