  2. IMPLICACIONES JURÍDICAS DE LA EXPIRACIÓN DEL CONTRATO DE ARRENDAMIENTO DE VIVIENDA URBANA Y DE LOCAL COMERCIAL

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available El contrato de arrendamiento de vivienda ha tenido amplio desarrollo normativo, su regulación se encuentra contenida en la ley 820 de 2003. Por su parte el contrato de arrendamiento comercial se encuentra regulado exiguamente en los artículos 518 a 524 del Código de Comercio; paralelamente a estas normatividades está el Decreto 3817 de 1982, el cual en su artículo 5 regula la situación del arrendador en los casos en que el arrendatario ha dado cumplimiento a las obligaciones dinerarias derivadas del contrato, sosteniendo que en dichos casos, el vencimiento del término inicial no es causal para dar por terminado el contrato, norma que va en contravía de los dispuesto en el artículo 2008, numeral 2 del Código Civil, que estipula que la expiración del término pactado en el contrato es causal para darlo por terminado. Dicha norma se encuentra vigente y tiene plena aplicabilidad tanto en los contratos de arrendamiento de vivienda, como en contratos comerciales. En consecuencia se plantea que el numeral 5 del artículo 3817 de 1982, implica una limitación al derecho de dominio del propietario y va en contra vía del principio que establece que el contrato es Ley para las partes.

  3. El nombre comercial

    Ernesto Rengifo García

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available La figura del nombre comercial suele ser objeto de poco desarrollo conceptual en los cursos de derecho de propiedad industrial, e incluso en los manuales que sirven de sustento a aquellos, esto por cuanto, entre otras razones, existe la predisposición a abarcar el análisis de los signos distintivos con el estudio –ese sí exhaustivo– de la marca; y además porque el mismo legislador suele reenviar, para efectos de la integración normativa del nombre comercial, a lo por él dispuesto sobre las marcas de comercio. Sin embargo, el nombre comercial ha devenido un signo de primer orden y sus implicaciones son hoy tan trascendentales en el mundo del intercambio de bienes y servicios que no es suficiente para su estudio verlo como un mero apéndice del signo distintivo por excelencia, esto es, la marca. El artículo realiza una exposición de la regulación del nombre, y dentro de ella hace énfasis en sus falencias y en aquellos asuntos que, con contradicciones evidentes, pueden colocar a la institución del nombre comercial en problemas de interpretación o de incerteza frente a la seguridad que reclama un tráfico jurídico cada vez más intenso en el uso y posicionamiento de signos distintivos diferentes a las marcas.

Las imágenes están organizadas como una red de significados o sistemas relacionados y organizados en torno a elementos fundamentales, que son socialmente aceptados y compartidos. La identificación de las imágenes mentales que los consumidores tienen sobre el Centro Comercial es relevante para dirigir las estrategias y acciones de marketing. A partir de una investigación exploratoria, se utilizó el Método de Configuración de Imagen (MCI, un instrumento probado y validado para la identificación de las imágenes de las organizaciones, productos, servicios y marcas, convirtiéndose, en una muestra de 400 consumidores, en la imagen del Centro Comercial estudiado. Basada en la Teoría del Núcleo Central, se identificaron los atributos y las dimensiones (cognitiva, emocional, funcional y simbólica en relación con las imágenes formadas por los consumidores. Los resultados se muestran en la Tabla de Configuración de la Imagen (GCI, que tiene los atributos que componen las imágenes del Centro Comercial, la proximidad de estos atributos con la Imagen Central y la dimensión a la que pertenecen. De los resultados, la imagen del Centro Comercial se encuentra más ligada a los elementos funcionales, o sea, las características físicas que ofrece, y los elementos simbólicos, o sea, el sentido de que el Centro Comercial transmite a los consumidores. Por lo tanto, las dimensiones más relevantes fueron la dimensión funcional (48,06% y la dimensión simbólica (33,71%, lo que representa más del 80% del VT (Valor Total de los atributos más recordados y evocados. De esto, uno podría pensar que estas dos dimensiones tienen los atributos más representativos de la comprensión común de los entrevistados acerca del Centro Comercial.

    Full Text Available Administrative and commercial complex - Lausanne - Switzerland In an area which is being rebuilt in the centre of Lausanne, a 145,000 m2 administrative and commercial complex has been built. It consists of a low body with 3 levels, arranged as platforms above the street and in the shape of terraces with gardens whereby a 4,000 m2 area reserved for pedestrians has been created. On this lower part, high buildings have been constructed in harmony with each other. The building system consists of an upper structure with big beams and ribs which support the façade panels. The structure rests upon 4 big central columns and two on the side, whereby a diaphanous look has been achieved, further increased by mobile partition walls by which future needs also can be attended to. The light exterior enclosures were thoroughly studied and tested so as to provide total protection against dust and outer noise. Further the construction is equipped with interior heating and cooling installations and insulation from sound. This new urban complex does not attempt to adapt itself to the surrounding environment, but its lines are rather an expression of the architecture of tomorrow.En la ciudad de Lausana se ha construido un complejo administrativo y comercial de 145.000 m2, en una zona urbana del centro sujeta a remodelación.

  15. Hume, Smith e as etapas da sociedade comercial

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rogério Arthmar

    Full Text Available Resumo O artigo trata das concepções de David Hume e de Adam Smith sobre o ressurgimento da sociedade comercial na Europa após o feudalismo. Parte-se de breve exposição dos princípios filosóficos de Hume a fim de se apresentar suas teses referentes ao assunto na obra History of England. Mostra-se como ele associa o movimento parlamentar pela liberdade na Inglaterra com o progresso do comércio ocasionado pelo consumo de luxo da nobreza. Posteriormente, revisa-se a posição de Smith sobre os obstáculos à riqueza, bem como sua explicação para a decadência das civilizações grega e romana. Evidencia-se ainda como a interpretação smithiana do advento da sociedade comercial moderna apoia-se na versão antecipada por Hume. Por fim, destacam-se as implicações do conflito central entre predação e produção presente nas teorias do desenvolvimento de longo prazo da humanidade elaboradas por ambos os autores.

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este trabajo fue evaluar el efecto del 1-Metilciclopropeno (1-MCP y etileno (solos o en combinación para manipular el proceso de maduración y extender vida de anaquel de papaya 'Maradol'. Durante el 2007 se realizaron tres ensayos: 1. Efecto del 1-MCP en papaya almacenada en condiciones de mercadeo y refrigeración más mercadeo; 2. Papaya tratada con 1-MCP y etileno y mezcla 1-MCP + etileno; 3. Evaluación comercial del 1-MCP y etileno en papaya. Se analizaron pérdida de peso, color externo, firmeza, color de pulpa y sólidos solubles totales. Se encontró que el 1-MCP a 100 nl·litro-1 retrasó el desarrollo de color externo y pulpa e inhibió el ablandamiento de los frutos. También se observó que el etileno a dosis de 100 ¿l·litro-1 aplicado después del 1-MCP no revirtió el efecto de éste, sin embargo, el 1-MCP aplicado después del etileno redujo la velocidad de ablandamiento y el desarrollo del color en cáscara y pulpa inducido por el etileno. Se concluye que el 1-MCP a 100 nl·litro-1 por 12 horas aplicado después del etileno puede ser una técnica viable para manipular el proceso de maduración y alargar vida de anaquel de papaya 'Maradol'.

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Resumen: En este trabajo se demuestra que la información de profundidad proporcionada por una cámara RGBD comercial de bajo coste, es una fuente fiable de datos para realizar de forma robusta el conteo automático de personas. La adopción de una configuración de vista cenital reduce la complejidad del problema, al mismo tiempo que permite preservar la privacidad de las personas moni- torizadas. Para llevar a cabo el estudio experimental se han considerado dos técnicas propias del campo de análisis de imágenes 2D trasladadas al contexto de imágenes de profundidad. Las pruebas evaluaron su rendimiento con v́ıdeos reales sin restricciones de iluminación, incluyendo episodios de iluminación cambiante o muy baja. En este conjunto experimental se realizó la detección, seguimiento y análisis de patrones de comportamiento de las personas que cruzaban el campo de visión. Los resultados obtenidos alcanzan una tasa de acierto próxima al 95%, superando los obtenidos con técnicas actuales basadas exclusivamente en información visual. Estos resultados sugieren la utilidad del uso de información de profundidad en esta tarea particular. Abstract: In this paper, we prove that depth information provided by a consumer depth camera is a reliable data source to perform ro- bust people counting. The adoption of a top view configuration reduces the space problem complexity for this task, while pre- serving privacy. Two different background subtraction approaches for color images are transferred to this context and tested in real video to perform detection, tracking, and behavioral pat- terns analysis of subjects crossing the field of view. The results achieved in an experimental setup with real video reported a TPR over 95%, beating robust GMM background subtraction based only on the visual cue. The results suggest the benefits of the depth cue for this particular task. Palabras clave: Conteo de personas, c

    Full Text Available The process of socio-educational territorialisation in rural contexts is the topic of this text. The theme corresponds to a challenge to address it having as main axis of discussion either the problem of social exclusion or that of local development. The reasons to locate the discussion in this last field of analysis are discussed in the first part of the text. Theoretical and political reasons are there articulated because the question is about projects whose intentions and practices call for the political both in the theoretical debate and in the choices that anticipate intervention. From research conducted for several years, I use contributions that aim at discuss and enlighten how school can be a potential locus of local development. Its identification and recognition as local institution (either because of those that work and live in it or because of those that act in the surrounding context are crucial steps to progressively constitute school as a partner for development. The promotion of the local values and roots, the reconstruction of socio-personal and local identities, the production of sociabilities and the equation and solution of shared problems were the dimensions of a socio-educative intervention, markedly globalising. This scenario, as it is argued, was also, intentionally, one of transformation and of deliberate change of school and of the administration of the educative territoires.

    Full Text Available Los objetivos fueron analizar la importancia socioeconómica de la cadena productiva y del proceso comercial de la miel en México, así como examinar la problemática e influencia que dicho proceso ejerce en apicultor, en particular sobre el comportamiento de los precios, el valor generado y su distribución. Se utilizaron como marco metodológico y teórico los fundamentos del comercio interregional y de la economía de los mercados agrarios, los cuales permiten analizar la integración y relación entre los niveles de mercado. Se encontró que la importancia socioeconómica de la apicultura se limita principalmente a su aporte de divisas y generación de empleos e ingresos en el medio rural. El principal canal de comercialización de la miel a granel lo conforman el apicultor, los acopiadores rurales, la empresa comercializadora mayorista y el agente comercial internacional. La producción y comercialización de miel está integrada para su acopio, proceso y entrega al comercializador externo o, en su caso, su distribución al mercado interno, pero con limitado beneficio al apicultor. La cosecha y oferta de miel en el mercado se concentra en pocos meses; esta situación y la necesidad de liquidez de los productores, favorece la ventaja de apropiación de valor que tienen los otros eslabones de la cadena, en especial el mayorista, quien determina el precio. Así, el valor que se agrega a la miel en la cadena productiva y comercial no se distribuye equitativamente, y su diferencia estriba en la capacidad de apropiación o poder de mercado de cada participante.

    Full Text Available La pérdida de rentabilidad del cultivo de frijol en México, aunada al incremento de los volúmenes de importación y la desregulación del mercado, ocasiona que el grano sea cada vez menos competitivo en relación con el cultivado en Estados Unidos, su principal socio comercial. El objetivo de esta investigación fue analizar la competitividad de la producción de frijol en México en el marco de la liberalización comercial; se encontró que a nivel macro, ésta es revelada negativa, debido al tipo de cambio sobrevaluado que favorece el dumping en las importaciones, además de que ha quedado desprotegida por e l Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN, al omitirse el pago de aranceles. A nivel meso, la formación de organizaciones ha favorecido a los productores, que han logrado crear economías de escala, aunque les falta consolidarlas. En el estudio a nivel micro, en Chihuahua, se observó que los costos de producción unitarios son elevados y los rendimientos bajos, lo que resulta en una rentabilidad menor en comparación con la de Estados Unidos.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available La política económica neoliberal ha promovido a escala global la apertura comercial bajo la hipótesis de que la liberalización del comercio da lugar automáticamente a un quiebre positivo en la tendencia de crecimiento económico. Esta acción de política económica está sustentada fundamentalmente en la teoría de la ventaja comparativa desarrollada por David Ricardo en la segunda década del Siglo XIX. Sin embargo, la ausencia de un incremento generalizado del PIB que acompañe la apertura comercial implementada a partir de la década de los ochenta en una gran cantidad de países nos muestra señales de que algo ha sucedido en el modelo exportador adoptado contrario a las expectativas favorables prometidas. México y muchos otros países se encuentran en un callejón sin salida, con problemas que se han profundizado con la reciente crisis económica que hasta ahora, especialmente en EE.UU. y Europa, no muestra señales de una recuperación global.

    2008-03-01

    Full Text Available This work aimed to evaluate the capability of different microorganisms to degrade commercial diesel oil in comparison to a weathered diesel oil collected from the groundwater at a petrol station. Two microbiological methods were used for the biodegradability assessment: the technique based on the redox indicator 2,6 - dichlorophenol indophenol (DCPIP and soil respirometric experiments using biometer flasks. In the former we tested the bacterial cultures Staphylococcus hominis, Kocuria palustris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa LBI, Ochrobactrum anthropi and Bacillus cereus, a commercial inoculum, consortia obtained from soil and groundwater contaminated with hydrocarbons and a consortium from an uncontaminated area. In the respirometric experiments it was evaluated the capability of the native microorganisms present in the soil from a petrol station to biodegrade the diesel oils. The redox indicator experiments showed that only the consortia, even that from an uncontaminated area, were able to biodegrade the weathered diesel. In 48 days, the removal of the total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH in the respirometric experiments was approximately 2.5 times greater when the commercial diesel oil was used. This difference was caused by the consumption of labile hydrocarbons, present in greater quantities in the commercial diesel oil, as demonstrated by gas chromatographic analyses. Thus, results indicate that biodegradability studies that do not consider the weathering effect of the pollutants may over estimate biodegradation rates and when the bioaugmentation is necessary, the best strategy would be that one based on injection of consortia, because even cultures with recognised capability of biodegrading hydrocarbons may fail when applied isolated.Este trabalho objetivou avaliar a capacidade de diferentes microrganismos em degradar óleo diesel comercial em comparação com um óleo diesel intemperizado coletado da água subterrânea em um posto de combust

En este artículo se evalúa si ha habido un cambio en la relevancia de esta variable bajo liberalización comercial. En particular, se evaluó la hipótesis de que liberalización comercial promovería el crecimiento de la productividad en las manufacturas de las ciudades del norte mexicano como resultado de los efectos dinámicos del comercio, dado que estas ciudades están más cercanas al nuevo mercado central para las manufacturas mexicanas y quizás a la pérdida de relevancia en los factores de crecimiento previamente acumulados (Livas y Krugman, 1992; Hanson, 1994. En contraste a esta hipótesis, se observa que las manufacturas en ciudades cercanas a los Estados Unidos no mostraron un mejor desempeño productivo que el resto de las manufacturas en el resto de las ciudades y que factores de crecimiento previamente acumulados, como educación e infraestructura, son aún relevantes para explicar el crecimiento de la productividad entre las manufacturas urbanas mexicanas.

    Full Text Available El régimen de protección de los datos de prueba definido en algunos ordenamientos jurídicos domésticos e incorporado, asimismo, en los acuerdos de integración comercial, plantea la cuestión acerca del tipo de derechos que en realidad otorga o debería otorgar tal régimen. Esta pregunta se asocia con la definición acerca de si tales datos deben ser amparados por las garantías adscritas al derecho del secreto comercial o por aquellas vinculadas al derecho de patentes. Las normas que en la actualidad disciplinan tal materia sugieren la concurrencia de ambos sistemas de protección, y por esa vía y desde una perspectiva de análisis económico del derecho puede constatarse que existe una intensa acumulación de costos posiblemente ineficiente.

También se analizó la institucionalidad de la CAN y las características del intercambio comercial intrarregional y la ampliación de su mercado en el mismo período. Finalmente como metodología para la elaboración de dicha investigación, se utilizó la descripción y análisis crítico basado en el estudio de estadísticas de fuentes oficiales y Organismos Internacionales, así como de teorías referidas al tema.

    Full Text Available La gestión comercial y el crecimiento empresarial son dos variables que deben estar intimamente relacionadas para lograr el éxito de las organizaciones, sobre ello muchos teoricos han generado sus aportes. Identificados los problemas de las pequeñas y medianas empresas hoteleras de Manabi-Ecuador en esta investigacion, se planteo el objetivo de establecer que la gestión comercial tiene influencia en el crecimiento de las PYME del sector estudiado. Se aplicaron 246 encuestas a los gerentes/administradores de estas empresas. El metodo de investigación es lógico inductivo completo, a través de la validación de una hipótesis general y tres específicas, utilizando el software estadístico SPSS 21. La prueba de Alfa de Cronbach para validar el instrumento arrojo un 0.994, significando que existe un alto nivel de confiabilidad en los datos recabados; el Rho de Spearman en la hipótesis general es de 0,966 evidenciando un nivel de correlación positiva significativa, con confiabilidad cercana a 1.

Sin embargo, y en contradicción con lo anterior, también se postuló que dada la etapa del desarrollo en que estos niños(as se encuentran (9 a 11 años, se re-apropiarían del espacio en los términos de Certeaux (1996. La metodología fue de carácter descriptivo, exploratorio y cuantitativa, utilizando la técnica de la observación no participante. Los resultados dieron cuenta de diversos comportamientos de los niños(as dentro del centro comercial, cuyo análisis permitió sustentar lo postulado respecto a la transmisión cultural de los adultos y del espacio comercial, pero no así la hipótesis de la re-apropiación.

  10. Consideraciones sobre la aplicación del principio iura novit curia en el arbitraje comercial internacional

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available A pesar de su reconocimiento en diferentes jurisdicciones, la apli­cación del principio iura novit curia al arbitraje comercial internacional ha sido objeto de debate. Desde el punto de vista más liberal, el principio es absolutamente aplicable al arbitraje comercial internacional, tal y como sería aplicado por un juez al dictar sentencia conforme a su derecho nacional, mientras que desde la postura más estricta, cualquier manifestación de este principio que permita a los árbitros tomar la iniciativa de traer nuevas cues­tiones de derecho al proceso debe ser rechazada por completo. Partiendo de la premisa de que, por lo general, los miembros de un tribunal arbitral inter­nacional no conocen el derecho aplicable a las controversias que se someten a su conocimiento, ni tienen experiencia o manejo práctico respecto a dicho derecho, la aplicación del principio iura novit curia de forma pura y simple no resultaría adecuada en el contexto del arbitraje comercial internacional en razón de su naturaleza contractual y los intereses involucrados. Por otra parte, rechazar de plano la aplicabilidad del principio en el arbitraje comercial internacional implicaría atar de manos a los árbitros y crearía el riesgo de que se emitan laudos que ignoren o contradigan normas y principios del derecho aplicable, lo que podría afectar su validez y dar pie a que su validez y ejecución posterior se vean cuestionadas. En razón de lo anterior, para que el principio iura novit curia pueda ser aplicado en el contexto del arbitraje comercial inter­nacional, dicho principio debe ser abordado desde una postura intermedia y sufrir una importante adaptación de forma que ciertas manifestaciones del mismo puedan ser aceptadas en casos excepcionales como una herramienta para que los árbitros puedan cumplir cabalmente con los deberes inheren­tes a su función decisoria, incluyendo el deber de no exceder la jurisdicción que les ha sido conferida, de dictar

Procedeu-se ao teste do modelo, utilizando-se o período de 1965-1977 a fim de realizar a comprovação pretendida, face a nova conjuntura internacional de elevados preços do petróleo, de desvalorização do dólar frente às moedas de alguns países industrializados e de baixo crescimento da economia mundial, bem como das mudanças na política econômica de comércio exterior do Brasil. Procedeu-se também a um teste de modelo alternativo para melhor aplicação econométrica a conjuntura atual de comércio exterior. Ao final observou-se que os modelos estudados são suficientes para mostrar que a melhora do nosso balanço comercial está sujeita às variáveis externas como, renda mundial, preços de importações e exportações, não se desprezando também a variável interna — taxa de câmbio.Attempt to confirm the validity of the econometric model utilized by Lemgruber for the period 1965-1974. This model was applied to the period 1965-1977, in order to test it in the face of a new set of international crisis, such as the increase of petroleum prices, the devaluation of the dollar in relation to the currencies of other industrial countries, and the low growth-rate of the world economy, as well as in the face of the changes in Brazil's foreign economic policy. An alternative model was also tested for econometric applicability to the actual situation of foreign trade. It was observed, in the end, that the models studied sufficiently demonstrated that the improvement of our balance of trade is subject to such external variables as world income and import-export prices, as well as to the internal variable of exchange rate.

To characterize the quality of wild boar meat in comparison to commercial pork, post mortem changes in the longissimus dorsi and semimembranosus muscles were determined by pH and temperature decline, and color (CIE L*a*b* measurements. Water holding capacity (WHC was determined by the compression method and the exudate loss (EL by the drip loss test. Decline in longissimus dorsi muscle pH of wild boar was gradual and in the pork it was faster and more extensive. Temperature differences were observed in some post mortem times, and the lowest values were found in wild boar carcasses. Wild boar meat presented lower values of L* (brightness and b* (yellow color intensity, and higher values of a* (red color intensity than pork. The WHC of the wild boar meat was similar to pork, but the EL in female wild boar meat was lower than in pork.Atualmente existe no Brasil um interesse crescente na criação e exploração comercial da carne de javali e para atender a uma demanda diferenciada é importante que os atributos qualitativos do produto sejam bem estabelecidos. Com o objetivo de caracterizar a carne de javali nos parâmetros de qualidade e compará-la com a carne suína comercial, as mudanças nos músculos Longissimus dorsi e Semimembranosus, no post mortem, foram acompanhadas com medidas de pH, temperatura e cor (CIE L*a*b*. A capacidade de retenção de água (CRA foi determinada pelo método de compressão e a perda de exsudato (PE pelo teste de "drip loss". A queda de pH na carne de javali ocorreu de forma gradual, enquanto que no Longissimus dorsi de suíno a diminuição foi mais rápida e mais extensa. Diferenças de temperatura foram verificadas em alguns tempos post mortem, sendo que os menores valores foram encontrados nos javalis. A carne

    Full Text Available Desde la segunda mitad de la década de los ochenta, el gobierno colombiano introdujo ajustes y reformas en materia comercial, con el propósito principal de recuperar el papel de la industria como motor del cambio estructural mediante la eliminación del sesgo antiexportador, la reasignación de los recursos hacia las actividades con ventaja comparativa y la intensificación del uso de los factores. Como corolario de lo anterior, la industria de las regiones elevaría sus niveles de productividad y eficiencia, modificándose simultáneamente el patrón de localización y reduciéndose su concentración en el denominado "triángulo de oro". Con una perspectiva analítica que podría denominarse como funcionalista, que considera la relación de la geografía con el desarrollo económico, este artículo examina los principales cambios que se produjeron en los aspectos señalados, evaluando asimismo los vínculos de la liberación comercial con la eficiencia, la localización y la concentración presentes en el enfoque ortodoxo. Se concluye que las mejoras en productividad y eficiencia, así como el desarrollo industrial basado en recursos en algunas regiones periféricas, contribuyeron a acentuar las tendencias hacia la polarizaciónIn order to give back industry its role as major engine of structural change, since the second half of the eighties the Colombian government has introduced a series of commercial adjustments and reforms, eliminating the anti-exporter bias, reassigning resources to comparative advantage activities and intensifying the use of factors. As a corollary of the above, the industry placed in the different regions would increase its productivity and efficiency levels, changing simultaneously the localization pattern and reducing its concentration on the so called "golden triangle". From an analytical perspective of the geography-economy development relationship, this paper examines the major changes that took place in the

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available O atual sistema de produção e consumo utiliza a comunicação publicitária para transmitir aos receptores-consumidores a necessidade de uma economia de crescimento exponencial. A publicidade comercial convencional produz realidades que devem ser objeto de desejo e, em última instância, necessidade. Contudo, tais necessidades não dão lugar a uma vida boa de ser vivida. Ao contrário, as narrativas publicitárias mercantilizadas provocam distâncias sociais, agravam os efeitos prejudiciais da economia capitalista e impõe barreiras para a transformção social. O objetivo principal do presente trabalho é analisar a relação entre a publicidade e o Bem Viver desde uma perspectiva crítica. Com o auxílio do método reflexivo, sugere-se um debate aprofundado sobre a teoria das necessidades e a possibilidade de uma publicidade a serviço do decrescimento.

    Full Text Available El patrón de cultivos de México ha evolucionado por las características propias de la actividad y las condiciones climatológicas que determinan en gran medida los volúmenes anuales de producción, afectados directamente por las variaciones en la superficie sembrada y cosechada y los rendimientos unitarios. Las tendencias en los hábitos de consumo y en los precios de los productos también son factores determinantes en la decisión de los agricultores sobre qué cultivos sembrar o plantar. La producción agrícola responde a la demanda derivada de la apertura comercial del país, acentuada con la firma del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN en 1994. El objetivo principal de esta investigación fue cuantificar los factores explicativos del crecimiento de la producción de frutas y hortalizas en México durante el periodo 1994 a 2009, a través de los efectos de la superficie, rendimiento, estructura de usos del suelo y su efecto combinado. Se utilizó la metodología de FAO (Gómez, 1994. El aumento de la superficie explica el 100 % del crecimiento de la producción de frutas, y el rendimiento explica 72.6 % del crecimiento en la producción de hortalizas. México es el principal proveedor de estos productos para Estados Unidos y el valor de las exportaciones hortofrutícolas ha crecido a tasas importantes, aunque ha perdido participación relativa en ese mercado.

No tempo zero e a cada 30 dias, as polpas foram analisadas quanto os teores de antocianinas totais, de ácido ascórbico bem como, quanto à capacidade de seqüestrar o radical DPPH e as características cromáticas. Comparando os valores inicias e após 180 dias de armazenamento constata-se que, tanto nos controles como nos tratamentos, houve redução no teor de antocianinas totais e no teor de ácido ascórbico bem como alteração nas características cromáticas revelando que as polpas ficaram mais claras e mais amareladas. No entanto, nos tratamentos, não foram detectadas perdas da capacidade de seqüestrar o radical DPPH, o que provavelmente tenha sido decorrente da adição de extrato de própolis.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La nueva política comercial del Mercado Común Centroamericano está dando lugar a cambios en los flujos comerciales, que inducirán un ajuste inter-/intraindustrial en el sector manufacturero regional. Este artículo presenta y analiza los principales resultados de un estudio empírico que evaluó el impacto del nuevo programa de integración regional en el patrón de especialización y comercio de manufacturas de cada país miembro. El enfoque empírico empleado conllevó la construcción de hojas de balance que integraron en una base comparable los datos de producción y comercio para el sector manufacturero de cada país. Asimismo, se obtuvieron dos grupos de ratios que midieron respectivamente, la importancia relativa de los mercados regional y mundial para los subsectores manufactureros de cada país, y el potencial de éstos para una especialización inter-/intraindustrial en los dos mercados.ABSTRACT: The new trade policy in the Central American Common Market is given rise to changes in trade flows that will induce an inter-/intraindustry adjustment in the regional manufacturing sector. This article presents and analyses the main results of an empirical study which assessed the impact of the new integration scheme on each member country's pattern of trade and specialisation in manufactures. The empirical approach used in the study involved the construction of balance sheets integrating production and trade data on a comparable basis for each country's manufacturing sector. Likewise, two groups of ratios were obtained. They measured respectively, the relative importance of the regional and world market for the manufacturing subsectors of each country and the subsectoral potential for an inter-/intraindustry specialisation in the two markets.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho é determinar os impactos da formação da Alca e de um possível bloco de comércio do Mercosul com a União Européia, para o Brasil em particular e para os demais países envolvidos em tais blocos, enfatizando os efeitos sobre o setor agrícola. O modelo de equilíbrio geral aplicado do Projeto de Análise de Comércio Global (Gtap é usado para implementar as simulações. Os resultados sugerem que a Alca traz aumentos na produção agrícola e superávits comerciais nos países do Mercosul; no entanto, para os produtos manufaturados tais efeitos são negativos. Os EUA e o Canadá apresentam uma pequena redução na balança comercial. O Brasil é o único país do Mercosul com ganhos de bem-estar. Os efeitos do Mercoeuro sobre os países membros são similares aos da Alca, porém em maior magnitude. Os ganhos de bem-estar estão presentes para todos os países do Mercoeuro, sendo este acordo mais favorável para os países do Mercosul do que a Alca.The objective of this paper is to determine the impacts on the international agricultural market of potential trade liberalization agreements such as Americas Free Trade Area (Afta and Mercosul and European Union Free Trade Area (Mercoeuro. The general equilibrium model from the Global Trade Analysis Project (Gtap is applied to run the simulations. The results suggest that Afta increases agricultural production and trade balance for the Mercosul countries, but for manufactures the effects are negative on both production and trade balance. The U.S. and Canada show a small reduction on trade balance. Brazil is the only Mercosul country to obtain welfare gains with Afta. The impacts of Mercoeuro on its member country are similar to those of Afta, but they are greater in magnitude. Also, all countries have welfare gains in the Mercoeuro, which presents greater benefits than Afta to their respective.

    Full Text Available The objective of the study is to model the flow curve at high temperature of a commercialpurity copper which contains 297 ppm of phosphorus. For this purpose a theoretical model is applied to derive a constitutive equation that reliably predicts the behaviour at higher strain rates than experimentally tested. The test temperature range was from 873 K to 1223 K in increments of 50 K, using six true strain rates at every temperature, which span from 0.3 s-1 to 0.001 s-1 The hot flow tests were performed on a copper with a relatively large grain size (637 µm but of similar scale to pertinent industrial processes. This metal presents two antagonistic phenomena during the hot working: strain hardening and softening by dynamic restoration, which in turns can be divided into dynamic recovery and dynamic recrystallization. A quantification of the mentioned mechanisms is done through the use of physically based constitutive equations.

    José Mauricio Gil León

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo se analiza el efecto de la apertura comercial sobre la producción manufacturera, y se detecta que este proceso causó un cambio estructural en las exportaciones e importaciones industriales, y creó una diferenciación en el comportamiento de estas, después de la década de los noventa. Por tanto, con el ejercicio econométrico de datos panel fue posible deducir que el impacto sobre la producción manufacturera fue superior después de la apertura comparado con los años anteriores, y esto permitió concluir que dadas las condiciones de desindustrialización ya existentes, la apertura contribuyó a profundizar este descenso, evidenciando una menor producción en los subsectores que generan un alto valor agregado.

We observed that the cited studies did not examine how the economic characteristics of Brazil conditioned the emergence and types, as well as the corresponding impacts of the MNFs on foreign trade. The models analyzing trade impacts succeed to single out the MNF's technology service, as compared to same-sector domestic firms, but do not examine whether or not these firms concentrated in activities with comparative advantages, crucial to determine the comparative trade contribution from these firms.

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar os efeitos de curto e longo prazo de choques na taxa de câmbio real sobre o saldo da balança comercial agropecuária brasileira, após a implantação do Plano Real. O procedimento metodológico empregado foi a análise multivariada descrita em Johansen (1991. Os resultados indicam que existem duas relações de longo prazo entre o saldo da balança comercial agrícola e renda doméstica com relação à renda do estrangeiro e à taxa de câmbio real. Verificou-se que, no longo prazo, um aumento de 1% da taxa de câmbio e na renda externa leva à expansão de 2,04% e 1,95%, respectivamente, no saldo da balança comercial. Esse resultado é consistente com a condição de Marshall-Lerner, que afirma: no longo prazo, o efeito volume deve superar o efeito preço, aumentando, assim, o saldo da balança comercial. Entretanto, no curto prazo, rejeita-se a hipótese de existência da Curva J.

Utilizando-se dos conceitos propostos pela análise institucional das organizações e pela sociologia econômica, foram analisadas as estratégias das empresas que dominam este mercado - a TAM Linhas Aéreas e a GOL Linhas Aéreas - e algumas implicações para a estruturação atual. A partir das informações institucionais das empresas que dominam o mercado do transporte aéreo comercial brasileiro, de órgãos governamentais responsáveis pelo controle das atividades e daquelas veiculadas na imprensa de negócios, o estudo procurou indicar os atores responsáveis pela estruturação das empresas dominantes. As duas empresas operam tanto no espaço industrial original, transporte aéreo, como em mercado de capitais. O modelo de negócio da empresa GOL, notadamente a adesão aos investimentos de private equities, seria um dos fatores determinantes para a nova configuração deste espaço industrial. A TAM, no âmbito financeiro, adota estratégia semelhante à GOL. A recente crise aérea e a crise financeira impactaram fortemente as duas empresas, sobretudo no valor de suas ações.This study focuses on the power dynamic of a particular space: Brazilian Airlines Companies.

Desse modo, objetivou-se caracterizar a atividade olerícola comercial do município de Alta Floresta/MT, dando enfoque ao perfil social e econômico dos agricultores familiares, com o intuito de evidenciar a geração de subsídios que contribuam para o planejamento e desenvolvimento da atividade em âmbito municipal. Para isso, foram utilizados os dados do Censo Agropecuário de 2006 do IBGE relativo às variáveis: mão de obra; número de estabelecimentos agropecuários; condição do produtor; grupo de atividades econômicas e produtos da olericultura; trabalho de campo para realização de entrevista, com aplicação de questionário quali-quantitativo para avaliação das características sociais e econômicas dos agricultores e georreferenciamento das sedes e da área produtiva das propriedades através do Sistema de Posicionamento Global-GPS. Assim, verificou-se a redução do número de pessoas por família e também a evasão dos jovens da área rural para a área urbana em busca de oportunidades de emprego e renda. Constatou-se ainda, que é maior o número de homens do que mulheres, entre os entrevistados. Além disso, as dificuldades enfrentadas pelos agricultores estão na falta de mão de obra e assistência técnica especializada. Portanto, concluiu-se que o desenvolvimento da olericultura comercial no município de Alta Floresta demanda de políticas públicas que apoiem este segmento da agricultura familiar.

    Full Text Available Este artigo pretende explorar as associações entre telenovela e público feminino, demonstrando que há um grande interesse comercial nesta construção simbólica. Esta associação - cujas origens são históricas e culturais - tem também um aspecto útil para emissoras como a Rede Globo, na medida em que aproveita de outra associação simbólica forte no meio publicitário e de marketing, a que considera o consumo como uma prática feminina. Telenovela e consumo são fortemente associados ao espaço doméstico e à esfera familiar, conexões reforçadas pela própria indústria cultural e pela publicidade.This article intends to discuss the associations between soap-opera and female audiences, disclosing the commercial interests that lie behind this symbolic construction. This association - that has historical and cultural origins - leads to useful aspects for networks like Rede Globo, for it relies on another strong symbolic association in the realms of marketing and advertising, that which considers consumption a feminine practice. Soap-opera and consumption are both deeply connected to the domestic space and the family, and these connections are reinforced by advertising and the cultural industry.

    Full Text Available RESUMO Este artigo analisa a diplomacia comercial portuguesa face à Espanha, no decurso da segunda metade do séc. XIX. Pretende, especialmente, acompanhar as várias negociações comerciais desenvolvidas entre os países ibéricos, nas décadas de 1860, 70, 80 e 90, as quais culminaram na celebração do tratado de comércio e navegação de 1893. Procura, igualmente, avaliar as tendências políticas nacionais sobre os aspectos positivos e negativos associados ao fortalecimento das ligações econômicas com a Espanha. Neste exercício, é possível identificar um papel renovado da Espanha na geopolítica portuguesa, como nas perspectivas de crescimento econômico subsequentes ao Ultimatum (1890 e à denúncia dos tratados de comércio e navegação celebrados com a Inglaterra (1842/1878.

    Full Text Available Se aborda la importancia de las exportaciones de ganado bovino en pie a los Estados Unidos de América, destacando el valor comercial que representa para México la entrada de divisas por 700 millones USD anuales por este concepto. La comercialización de ganado se ve frenada por barreras no arancelarias, tales como la tuberculosis (TB, brucelosis y las garrapatas. Se ha formado un grupo binacional de expertos para tratar estos temas. En el tema de garrapatas se han establecido sistemas de colaboración entre ambos países para la identificación de especies de garrapatas y la rastreabilidad de los casos que sean cuarentenados, desde la línea fronteriza hasta su origen en los diferentes estados mexicanos. Se generó un Proyecto de la Franja Fronteriza para la erradicación de la garrapata Boophilus en los estados mexicanos limítrofes con el estado de Texas, consistente en la identificación de predios infestados, tratamientos ixodicidas e inspección del ganado para exportación a los Estados Unidos. Se discuten las acciones que ambos países están llevando a cabo para la erradicación de garrapata Boophilus en la frontera y para evitar la llegada de ganado con garrapatas a las estaciones cuarentenarias de exportación. Se concluye sobre la necesidad de reforzar y mejorar estos programas.

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available Se propone un modelo teórico para explicar la heterogeneidad observada en la adopción de leyes antidumping por pequeños países en vía de desarrollo en un contexto de reducción arancelaria multilateral. El análisis se basa en un juego de tres etapas de determinación de política comercial con competencia imperfecta en productos diferenciados, donde la posible presión para la protección se refleja en la función objetivo del gobierno y donde los aranceles se pueden consolidar como resultado de acuerdos comerciales multilaterales. Este marco implica que la aplicación de este dispositivo de protección administrativa es la mejor respuesta del gobierno cuando los aranceles consolidados multilaterales alcanzan un umbral los suficientemente bajo. La heterogeneidad en la decisión de adopción se explica por el tamaño relativo del mercado nacional, el grado de diferenciación de los productos y los motivos de economía política. Las relativamente grandes economías, los mercados nacionales altamente competitivos y los países con una alta presión interna para la protección promulgan leyes antidumping mucho más rápido.

    Full Text Available Although the epidemiology of fowl typhoid in chickens supposedly involves a vertical transmission stage, a previous work run by the authors has suggested that this did not happen in a commercial line of laying hens highly susceptible to systemic disease with Salmonella Gallinarum. A new experiment was carried out in two other lines of commercial layers, considerably more resistant than those used in the previous study. Clinical fowl typhoid was not observed, but Salmonella Gallinarum was isolated from the spleen and liver four weeks after infection and, sporadically, from the ovary.Estudo anterior, realizado pelos mesmos autores com aves consideradas susceptíveis ao agente do tifo aviário, sugeriu que a relação entre a bactéria e a aves restringe-se ao período da enfermidade. Neste trabalho avaliou-se a relação hospedeiro-parasita entre Salmonella Gallinarum e aves leves de postura comercial, consideradas mais resistentes ao tifo aviário. As aves não desenvolveram a doença clínica, mas a bactéria foi isolada do baço e do fígado quatro semanas após a infecção e, em algumas ocasiões, também do ovário.

    Full Text Available Para que un comercial que promueve conductas prosociales o de autocuidado sea efectivo, existen variables que intervienen sobre el proceso de cambio conductual. Para mejorar las estrategias de publicidad y mercadeo es importante analizar dichas variables y así lograr diseñar un comercial efectivo. Para la Psicología del Consumidor algunas de estas variables son: la respuesta emocional, la memoria y la actitud. En este estudio se evaluó la relación entre estas variables y el tipo de contexto en el que se presenta el comercial. Se encontraron diferencias significativas entre la recordación de 6 comerciales televisivos, la cual se explica desde las características intrínsecas de cada mensaje publicitario como estímulos independientes, sobre los cuales no se encontró influencia de los contextos de presentación. La actitud frente al mensaje de los comerciales presentó la misma tendencia encontrada en la memoria y fue significativo el nivel de correlación entre las variables memoria y actitud. Por su parte las medidas fisiológicas mostraron diferencias significativas en activación autónoma frente a los diferentes contextos, demostrando que diferentes programas generan en el televidente una condici ón emocional diferencial; sin embargo, no se encontró un efecto claro de los distintos niveles de activación entre contextos sobre las medidas fisiol ógicas generadas por cada comercial.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo avalia até que ponto a política comercial britânica foi liberal entre 1820 e 1913. Para tanto, faz-se uma breve apresentação da teoria liberal de comércio internacional com base no modelo Heckscher-Ohlin-Samuelson. Vê-se que o liberalismo comercial considera a elevação das importações, e não das exportações, o objetivo maior do comércio internacional, de modo que sua mensagem normativa apresenta a liberalização unilateral como a melhor política possível. Com base em fontes secundárias, constata-se que a política comercial britânica foi coerente com a mensagem normativa liberal ao praticar liberalização comercial unilateral. Entretanto, argumenta-se que a Grã-Bretanha objetivava exportar mais, donde se conclui que a política comercial britânica não foi strictu sensu liberal, aderindo ao liberalismo em 1820-1913.In what extent was the British trade policy liberal between 1820 and 1913? This paper constructs an answer to this question based both on a brief overview on the liberal theory of international trade and on the analysis of secondary sources on the British trade policy. It is asserted that the liberal theory considers the increase in imports, and not in exports, as the main goal in international trade. The theory's normative message thus points out that unilateral liberalization is the best trade policy. It is then seen that the British trade policy was coherent with the liberal normative message as it promoted unilateral liberalization. However, such policy's main goal was to increase exports, which supports the conclusion that the British trade policy was not strictu sensu liberal, but adhered to liberalism in 1820-1913.

In countries with a rich and ancient history such as Spain it is especially relevant the conservation and management of heritage, not only because its cultural importance, but also because a new business activity has emerged close to it: the sector of commercial archaeology. However, there is an important gap in the understanding of these cultural and heritage services. It is difficult to observe the conditions that shape its emergence, the economic and labour situation of the firms and the opportunities for development of these firms. This article presents a study of Spanish commercial archaeology, a knowledge intensive business service which has grown in close relation with heritage regulations and policies since 1990’s. We explore the emerging process and the current conditions of this sector by using several empirical sources: regulations and policy documents, a census of archaeological companies, and a survey to these companies. The case study illustrates the dynamics created by the public sector and its influence on the creation of a special market, as well as the influences on innovation and economic growth of cultural industries.

    Full Text Available O guanandi, nativo do Brasil, é uma espécie com usos múltiplos, produz madeira de excelente qualidade, muito apreciada no mercado e constitui excelente alternativa ao cultivo do mogno e cedro rosa. É uma espécie muito boa para uso em plantios visando ao reflorestamento ambiental, inclusive na recomposição de florestas ciliares, pelo fato de ser muito procurada pela fauna e por suportar terrenos com nível freático elevado. Apesar das inúmeras vantagens, há poucas informações sobre a espécie, havendo necessidade de aprofundar os estudos, inclusive os relativos ao zoneamento climático. O presente trabalho é importante para auxiliar no planejamento de uso da terra, servindo de base para estudos de zoneamento agrícola de riscos climáticos, importante instrumento de política agrícola para concessão de seguro rural e crédito agrícola. A identificação das regiões com os menores riscos climáticos é ferramenta essencial para auxiliar produtores rurais a conduzirem suas atividades com maior êxito, ao escolher, para cada região, a cultura mais bem adaptada. A geada e a deficiência hídrica são responsáveis pela maioria dos sinistros agrícolas no país, ocasionando perdas econômicas por longos períodos. Assim, este estudo apresenta as diferentes zonas climáticas existentes no Brasil para o cultivo comercial do guanandi, por meio das informações geoespaciais de risco de ocorrência de geadas e de déficit hídrico, mapeadas utilizando SIG. As melhores zonas para o plantio comercial do guanandi foram aquelas com baixos riscos de geada, associadas a um balanço hídrico favorável, o que ocorre em grande parte do Brasil, principalmente na região amazônica e na costa brasileira. Guanandi is a woody species native to Brazil with multiple uses, it has a wood of excellent quality, much appreciated in the market and it is a good alternative for the cultivation of mahogany and pink cedar.

    Full Text Available Resumo: O jacaré-do-pantanal (Caiman yacare é uma espécie abundante no ecossistema do Pantanal. Sua exploração comercial está regulamentada desde 1990 e se tornou um agronegócio em expansão. Para atender essa demanda, uma unidade processadora instalada em Mato Grosso, vem comercializando carne de jacaré em diferentes cortes, entre os quais o filé de dorso, oriundo do pescoço, nos últimos quatro anos. O objetivo desta pesquisa foi descrever os músculos e correspondentes bases ósseas desse corte. Para a descrição de ossos, utilizaram-se seis carcaças desossadas de exemplares juvenis de jacaré-do-pantanal, além de um exemplar adulto obtido após morte do animal, por doação, do Zoológico da UFMT. Os ossos foram macerados em água corrente, clareados com solução de água oxigenada a 10 volumes, e seus detalhes anatômicos foram descritos. Para descrever o músculo, 24 exemplares juvenis foram obtidos após abate e esfola, conservados em freezer e descongelados quando utilizados, sem qualquer fixação. Após a evisceração, foram dissecados em ambos os antímeros, para verificação de simetria de ocorrência, fixações musculares, relacões de sintopia, forma e arquitetura muscular. Verificou-se que a coluna cervical em C. yacare apresenta nove vértebras cervicais (VC, associadas com as respectivas costelas, que servem de base principal ao filé de dorso, que é constituído pela musculatura cervical, exceto os músculos intertransversais cervicais e intercostais cervicais externos.

A unidade termelétrica servirá como uma fonte alternativa de energia na matriz energética do empreendimento. O custo de energia elétrica representa um impacto considerável nos custos operacionais do edifício. A análise quantitativa dos dados de consumo de energia do Edifício Comercial estudado, associado ao conhecimento do sistema tarifário hora-sazonal foi fundamental para determinar a viabilidade do projeto. Além disto, foi verificada a viabilidade econômica do projeto, tendo como base dois parâmetros financeiros de tempo de retorno (payback e critério do valor presente líquido (CVPL. Os resultados permitiram demonstrar, que realmente é tecnicamente e economicamente viável a aplicação do investimento neste projeto, obtendo uma redução de consumo de energia elétrica de aproximadamente 20% a. m., o equivalente a R$295.000,00 menos do valor pago mensalmente. Outro ganho é que o Edifício Comercial diversificou suas fontes de energia elétrica e assim permanecerá com alimentação elétrica quando houver interrupção no fornecimento da rede pública.

A investigação da diversidade de abelhas em pomares de goiaba pode ser subsídio para estratégias de incremento da produtividade. Nesta perspectiva, o objetivo deste estudo foi identificar a diversidade de abelhas visitantes das flores de goiaba (Psidium guajava, em pomar comercial em Salinas (MG. O trabalho foi desenvolvido em maio de 2005 e foram coletadas as abelhas visitantes das flores nos horários entre 6h e 18h, totalizando-se 44 horas de coleta. Coletaram-se 705 abelhas de 17 espécies, sendo Trigona spinipes a mais freqüente e dominante na cultura da goiaba. Apis mellifera, Melipona quadrifasciata e Tetragonisca angustula foram consideradas acessórias. Aproximadamente 84% dos indivíduos foram coletados da manhã, de 6h às 10h.Pollination is an important factor in agricultural systems, especially in growing fruits and seed production, which depend greatly on bee visiting during blossom season; highly successful gains within these activities varies between 80 and nearly 100 per cent, owing to the bees. The assessment of bee diversity in commercial orchards of guava may contribute to a more desirable strategic design and consequent improvement of production. The aim of the study was identify the diversity of visiting bees to guava flowers (Psidium guajava in a commercial orchard in Salinas, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The work was carried during blossom season of May - 2005. Field works occurred between 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, counting with 44 hours of collection, when 705 bees were collected. The richness observed was of 17 species, the most frequent and dominant being Trigona spinipes. Among the collection there were some considered accessory species: Apis mellifera, Melipona quadrifasciata and Tetragonisca angustula. Most of individual bees have been captured

    Full Text Available No Brasil, o número de plantios comerciais de espécies florestais de crescimento rápido vem aumentando consideravelmente nas últimas décadas. Contudo, os possíveis impactos desse aumento sobre os recursos hídricos ainda são desconhecidos. O objetivo deste estudo foi realizar a modelagem do balanço hídrico em uma microbacia cultivada com plantio comercial de híbridos de Eucalyptus grandis x urophylla no Leste de Minas Gerais, Brasil. O trabalho foi realizado em uma microbacia experimental com área total de 40 ha durante o ano hidrológico, compreendido entre outubro de 2009 e setembro de 2010. A principal entrada de água no sistema via precipitação pluvial e os dados meteorológicos foram coletados por uma estação automática instalada no interior da área de estudo. As principais saídas foram estimadas pela equação modificada de Penman-Monteith e pela mensuração do deflúvio gerado na saída da bacia. Do total precipitado (1.123 mm durante o ano, 9% (106 mm retornaram à atmosfera via interceptação, 66% (740 mm via transpiração da cultura e 11% (119 mm pela evaporação do solo, que somados corresponderam à aproximadamente 86% da entrada de água na microbacia. Do deflúvio total gerado (~147 mm, apenas 4,29 mm (0,4% foram convertidos em escoamento superficial. Pode-se concluir que durante o ano hidrológico monitorado o balanço entre as principais entradas e as saídas de água na microbacia foi equalizado, não comprometendo a disponibilidade hídrica natural no curso d'água.

    Full Text Available Tras un recorrido histórico a la relación médico-paciente, este escrito desea indagar en la pregunta de cómo una profesión como la medicina, en donde se procura el bienestar de quienes se acercan a los servicios de salud, y sin desconocer su misma individualidad disciplinaria, puede mantener el lugar de confianza en la sociedad dentro de un sistema mercante en donde lo importante es la producción de réditos en un ambiente de competencia comercial. La revisión teórica está basada en la búsqueda de lo que han sido las exigencias morales y científicas que se le han atribuido tradicionalmente al profesional de la salud, en particular a los médicos, y en la influencia que esto tuvo en la forma de interacción del personal sanitario y los enfermos. Y, cómo a tal punto, esta relación se ha venido transformando, luego del intento legislativo por optimizar los escasos recursos económicos de las naciones en vías de desarrollo, y en particular el caso de Colombia. Finalmente, una vez identificadas algunas de las posibles causas del deterioro de la confianza en las relaciones humanas en el ámbito de la atención clínica, se aborda el tema de cómo el incumplimiento de lo ofrecido por la ciencia, la inclusión de herramientas económicas y la falta de privacidad en el contexto de la consulta médica, resultan la piedra angular en el cambio de escenario donde se da la relación médico-paciente, puesto que éstas condicionan la posibilidad de entablar una comunicación abierta y sincera, y no permite la construcción de una condición de "amistad" entre el clínico, el afectado y su familia.

Foram realizados 62 ensaios em blocos ao acaso, com três repetições, em diferentes épocas de semeadura, nas Regiões Centro Sul (RS, SC, PR, SP e MS e Central (GO e DF, nos anos de 2009 e 2010. Os ensaios foram compostos por 16 linhagens de grãos carioca e foram obtidos dados de produtividade, rendimento de peneira e massa de 100 grãos. Os dados foram submetidos a análises de variância individuais e conjuntas e a análises de adaptabilidade e estabilidade pela metodologia de Annichiaricco. Existe variação genética entre as linhagens para os três caracteres. As estimativas do coeficiente de determinação mostraram que o efeito de genótipos é mais importante para a qualidade comercial do que para produtividade de grãos e que o efeito ambiental é igualmente importante para os três caracteres, indicando que a avaliação deve ser realizada no maior número possível de ambientes. As linhagens superiores para produtividade nas Regiões Central (CNFC 11954 e CNFC 11959 e Centro-Sul (CNFC 11948 do Brasil são diferentes, indicando a importância da interação genótipos x ambientes para essa característica. Entretanto, as duas melhores linhagens na Região Central apresentaram baixa qualidade comercial dos grãos. Assim, a linhagem CNFC 11948 será indicada como nova cultivar de ampla adaptação, pois reúne ótima qualidade comercial de grãos, maior produtividade média e estabilidade na Região Centro-Sul e produtividade e estabilidade superiores as principais testemunhas na Região Central.

Frente al proceso de integración, la participación de Colombia ha sido activa en todo el periodo analizado, no sin oposición de sectores económicos y políticos, muy a pesar de que se reconoce al país su asimetría en el desarrollo y ello se plasma en el Acuerdo Comercial con trato preferencial para el país en el programa de desgravación, como también el reconocer su libertad comercial extra-región; ambos elementos importantes en su política de libre comercio, lo cual aunado a la posible desintegración de la CAN y con ello la pérdida de un mercado de valor agregado, hacen ver a la integración con el MERCOSUR como una opción adecuada para no perder el comercio regional, así como la ampliación de su economía de escala, mayor integración fronteriza, inversión extranjera y acceso a ciencia, tecnología y aprendizaje con países del sur con mayor desarrollo, no sin desconocer la importancia también de toda Suramérica en la búsqueda de consensos a su política de seguridad e integración económica y física.

  13. Localized superconductors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ma, M.; Lee, P.A.

    1985-01-01

    We study the effects of Anderson localization on superconductivity by using a Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS)-type trial wave function which pairs electrons in exact time-reversed eigenstates of the single-particle Hamiltonian. Within this approximation, and neglecting localization effects on the effective Coulomb repulsion and the electron-phonon coupling, we find that superconductivity persists below the mobility edge. In fact, Anderson's theorem is valid in the localized phase as long as rhoΔ 0 L/sup d/ > 1 (rho is the density of states averaged over +- Δ 0 of the Fermi energy, Δ 0 the BCS gap parameter, and L the localization length). Hence the gap order parameter Δ(r) remains uniform in space at the BCS value Δ 0 . The superfluid density and response to electromagnetic perturbations, however, show marked differences from the ''dirty superconductor'' regime. For rhoΔ 0 L/sup d/ < 1, Δ(r) fluctuates spatially and eventually drops to zero. In the limit when states are site localized, the system crosses over into the ''Anderson negative-U glass.'' Considerations beyond the trial wave-function approximation will speed up the destruction of superconductivity. The superconductor formed from localized states has the property that its quasiparticle excitations are also localized. Such excitations can be probed by observing the normal current in a tunneling junction

Los resultados demuestran diferencias con la altura del fuste, disminuyendo los contenidos de sustancias extraíbles y ligninas con la altura del mismo. Los datos de la espectroscopia IR demostraron la presencia de ligninas del tipo siringil-guaiacílica y diferencias estructurales con la altura del árbol. La banda del espectro de absorción IR correspondiente a la región de 1500 cm–1, explica las variaciones de los porcentajes de lignina con la altura, lo cual evidencia que en la parte superior del árbol esta lignina es menos reticulada y sugiere menor grado de polimerización de las unidades monoméricas que la componen. El comportamiento térmico de la celulosa de madera muestra señales más agudas en la parte superior del fuste con variaciones de entalpías mayores, sugiriendo variabilidad estructural de la celulosa con la altura del fuste comercial.

It is proved that the Yang-Mills equations for the introduced ansatz for supertwistor connection are equivalent to free bach equations, describing the dynamics of N=1 conformal supergravity. Analogous interpretation of the dynamics of N=1 conformal supergravity coupled to a vector superfield is proposed. It is proved that any complex conformally right or left flat superspace automatically satisfies the Bach equations

    Full Text Available La mayor parte de la literatura sobre demanda de agua urbana se ha enfocado en estimar los determinantes de la demanda de agua de uso residencial y existe poca evidencia empírica sobre la demanda de agua de uso comercial (Worthington, 2010. El análisis se ha centrado en áreas urbanas y no se ha abordado dentro de áreas naturales protegidas, particularmente en regiones áridas. El recurso hídrico es un insumo fundamental para el desarrollo de las actividades productivas, la generación de valor agregado y la cantidad de abastecimiento que necesita el personal que labora en el sector comercial. Además, los organismos encargados de la prestación de los servicios de agua potable y alcantarillado enfrentan serios problemas económicos como el pago no oportuno por parte de los usuarios beneficiados, así como insuficiencia de medidores para cuantificar con precisión la provisión del líquido, provocando una menor facturación y una restricción en el control de la demanda. Situación que merece un mayor tratamiento aplicado. El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar la respuesta de los consumidores de agua comercial ante los cambios en su precio en el corto y largo plazo. Asimismo, mide el efecto de la falta del cobro, la proporción de usuarios que cuentan con medidor y otras variables como la temperatura promedio y la precipitación sobre el nivel de consumo. Se estimó una función dinámica de demanda de agua con especificación del precio promedio utilizando una estructura de datos de panel. Los resultados señalan que el precio impacta negativamente en el consumo con una magnitud baja. La elasticidad precio de corto y largo plazo fueron menores que uno, con -0.07 y -0.18, respectivamente. La elasticidad de la temperatura fue de 0.09, la semielasticidad del incumplimiento de pago fue de 0.20 y la proporción de tomas que cuentan con medidor fue de 0.23.

    Full Text Available En los últimos tiempos estamos asistiendo, en el campo de la Dirección estratégica, a nuevas formulaciones que inciden en la importancia de focalizar las estrategias empresariales en mercados y ámbitos locales. En este sentido, el comercio tradicional en los espacios locales, constituido básicamente por empresas familiares, ha contemplado, en los últimos 15 años, cómo las fuerzas competitivas de su entorno se han visto alteradas por la irrupción generalizada de hipermercados y grandes superficies. En el ámbito territorial de Castilla y Léon esta realidad ha propiciado la aparición de nuevas estrategias cooperativas entre las empresas locales de pequeño comercio. Uno de estos ensayos estratégicos locales, realizado con éxito, se estudia en este trabajo.In recent times, as far as the strategic management is concerned, new proposals have been suggested, which are focused on the local markets.

    Merkulov, S.A.

    1987-01-01

    The geometry of local supertwistors is investigated. An ansatz on the form of the supertwistor superconnection is introduced. Because of this restriction on the form of such a superconnection the Yang-Mills equations for the superconnection turn out to be equivalent to the free Bach equations describing the dynamics of simple conformal supergravity. It is shown that the equations of motion of conformal supergravity interacting with a vector superfield admit an analogous interpretation. It is proved that an arbitrary conformally right-flat or left-flat superspace is automatically a solution of the Bach equations

Por meio de acompanhamentos diários das pescarias da frota comercial de Tefé, foi descrito o descarte de pescado no médio Solimões. Utilizando análises de correlação e covariância, foram avaliados fatores que determinam o descarte com três modalidades distintas de pesca. Os pescadores selecionaram o pescado no momento da captura por espécie e tamanho. As espécies de pescados mais descartados foram jaraquis, tucunarés e branquinhas, porém os mais freqüentes, no descarte, foram espécies dos Siluriformes. Os apetrechos de pesca analisados apresentaram diferenças nas características de seu descarte. O descarte foi menor na enchente-cheia (5-17% da captura, conforme apetrecho que durante a vazante-seca (20-62%, conforme apetrecho. Discards are common in commercial fishery, and are evaluated in order to support fisheries management in the region. Fish discards in themiddle Solimões River were described through daily monitoring of fishing activities by the commercial fleet of the town of Tefé. By making use of analyses of correlation and covariance, determinant factors for discards in three different types of fisheries wereevaluated. The crew selected the fish at the moment of capture, by species and size. Among the most discarded fish species were jaraquis Semaprochilodus spp., tucunarés Cichla spp. and branquinhas Curimatidae; however, the most frequently discarded were Siluriform species. The fishing gear analyzed featured differences in their discarding characteristics. Discard was lower during the flood period (5-17% of catches, depending on gear than during the dry season (20-62% of catches, depending on gear.

Nesse sentido, este trabalho teve como objetivo analisar a utilização dos ambientes de captura e a distribuição do esforço de pesca pela frota comercial em função do ciclo hidrológico. Foram coletados diariamente, entre junho de 2003 e maio de 2004, dados de desembarque e das expedições de pesca que ocorreram na região do Médio rio Madeira e submetidos à estatística descritiva. Os resultados mostraram que existiu uma tendência de aumento no esforço de pesca durante o período da enchente pelas embarcações da frota local, para compensar a queda na produção capturada. Os barcos de pesca e canoas motorizadas apresentaram valores médios de CPUE de 22,9 e 20,6 kg/pescador*dia, respectivamente. Ficou evidenciada também a maior utilização dos ambientes igarapés e lagos pelos pescadores de canoas motorizadas e do rio pelos pescadores dos barcos.The adaptation of the strategies of the fisherman to the seasonality in the Amazonian attests the level of traditional ecological knowledge in relation to the fish and to the variations of the fishing in that environment, as it happens in other regions of Brazil.

    The current polemic about the possibilities of sustainable development has led to a renovated interest for the topic of the sustainability of the communities and the local sustainability. In front of the global sustainability whose conditions have been exposed by systemic ecologists and for macro economists, the sustainability of specific places arises in the planet whose conditions are object of study of the ecology of landscapes, of the ecological economy, of the cultural anthropology, of the environmental sociology and naturally, of the integral environmentalism. In this discussion the Colombian case charges unusual interest to be one of the few countries of Latin America, where a very dense net of municipalities exists, each one with its urban helmet and with a position and some functions defined by the political constitution of the nation. This net of municipalities and of urban helmets it also constitutes net of alternative to the current macro-cephalic situation. As well as Bogota grew, in a hundred years, of less than a hundred thousand inhabitants to six million inhabitants, each one of these municipalities contains a potential of growth that depends on the characteristics of its ecological, social, economic and politic sustainability

São analisados, então, os fatores microeconômicos vinculados com um aprofundamento dos saldos negativos do intercâmbio bilateral de manufaturas de origem industrial, e uma diminuição dos saldos positivos dos demais itens (produtos primários, manufaturas de origem agropecuária e combustíveis para a Argentina. As conclusões indicam que a evolução da relação comercial bilateral está fortemente vinculda com mudanças na esfera produtiva sofridas por ambas as nações. Isto, longe de sugerir uma situação fechada ou concluída, enfatiza a necessidade de coordenar futuras estratégias regionais para fortalecer um comércio do tipo intraindustrial que consolide a situação competitiva do Mercosul em relação a terceiros mercados.This work analizes the macro and microeconomic factors that led to recent transformations in the trade relations between Argentina and Brazil. The conclusions are that those transformations were strongly linked with the changes in the productive field that took place in each of both countries.

Las dietas fueron procesadas (extruidas o peletizadas en micro extrusora para laboratorio Exteec® (Exteec máquinas, Brasil. El análisis de los indicadores acumulados mostró que el proceso de extrusión generó un mayor crecimiento y una mayor eficiencia en el uso de alimento hasta la fase de crecimiento 2 (P<0,05. En la fase de finalización los desempeños fueron similares entre los tipos de procesamiento, respuesta que podría estar asociada con una mayor densidad en términos de biomasa alcanzada por el grupo alimentado con alimento extruido generando así que el desempeño global del ciclo no presentara diferencias entre los tratamientos.

  11. Determinación de precios óptimos en el sector de la distribución comercial en España: aplicación de un enfoque de competencia asimétrica

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available Teniendo en cuenta la importancia que adquieren las decisiones de precios en la distribución comercial minorista, en este trabajo se propone un modelo de decisión de precios óptimos en el que, a corto plazo, los efectos de los precios óptimos sobre la demanda y los márgenes del distribuidor maximizan la rentabilidad global de la categoría de productos. Tres aspectos fundamentales permiten describir esta propuesta: 1 se basa en una perspectiva agregada; 2 incorpora modelos de cuota de mercado con consistencia lógica –con el fin de aportar mayor robustez a la medición de la demanda– y 3 incluye el papel de la estructura competitiva mediante una modelización explícita de los efectos asimétricos de precio entre productos competidores. Asimismo, se evalúan las consecuencias de una estructura competitiva asimétrica sobre las decisiones óptimas de precios y se cuantifica el coste derivado de obviar esta circunstancia en la toma de decisiones a través de una aplicación empírica

En consecuencia, creemos que debe hacerse una interpretación coherente y armónica con todo el ordenamiento, y por tanto, en el caso de que existan institutos con regímenes especiales debe primar su aplicación. Además, entendemos que la facultad del deudor de liberarse entregando el equivalente en moneda de curso legal es supletoria de la voluntad de las partes, siempre y cuando no se viole la prohibición de indexar. En los casos en que proceda tal atribución sería pertinente para calcular el valor de cambio, acudir a mecanismos que respeten el valor real de la moneda extranjera.

    Shopping centers are one of the most striking elements of contemporary European city, an indispensable place of consumption itself and, increasingly, one of the key places of daily life.

    If, for some, these typologies are places where everything is accessible in a comfortable and secure way. For others, they are the epitome of advanced capitalism, in an era in which consumption pervades all dimensions of contemporary life.

    And if notions such as center and periphery, public and private, or non-place and place, are now challenged by the hybrid nature of these commercial typologies, that is precisely because the city itself has dramatically changed over the past years.

    In a context in which the shopping centers gradually accumulate the functions of prime sites of consumption and gravitational centers of the metropolitan condition, this article will explore how this commercial formula is progressively both shopping & center of the contemporary European city.

    Los centros comerciales son, actualmente, uno de los elementos más distintivos de la ciudad europea, un lugar íntimamente enlazado con la actividad del consumo y, cada vez más, uno de los lugares clave de la vida cotidiana.

    Si, para unos, estas tipologías constituyen locales donde todo se encuentra accesible, son vistos por otros como una de las más plenas realizaciones de la sociedad de consumo.

    Y si nociones como centro y periferia, público y privado, o lugar y no-lugar, se ven hoy desafiadas por el carácter híbrido de estas tipologías comerciales, será también porque la propia ciudad se transformó radicalmente a lo largo de los últimos años.

    Así, ante un panorama en el cual los centros comerciales son simultáneamente locales privilegiados del consumo y posibles centralidades de la condición metropolitana, ésta será una reflexión en torno el afirmar

    2015-01-01

    We elaborate on the principle that for gapped quantum spin systems with local interaction, “local perturbations [in the Hamiltonian] perturb locally [the groundstate].” This principle was established by Bachmann et al. [Commun. Math. Phys. 309, 835–871 (2012)], relying on the “spectral flow technique” or “quasi-adiabatic continuation” [M. B. Hastings, Phys. Rev. B 69, 104431 (2004)] to obtain locality estimates with sub-exponential decay in the distance to the spatial support of the perturbation. We use ideas of Hamza et al. [J. Math. Phys. 50, 095213 (2009)] to obtain similarly a transformation between gapped eigenvectors and their perturbations that is local with exponential decay. This allows to improve locality bounds on the effect of perturbations on the low lying states in certain gapped models with a unique “bulk ground state” or “topological quantum order.” We also give some estimate on the exponential decay of correlations in models with impurities where some relevant correlations decay faster than one would naively infer from the global gap of the system, as one also expects in disordered systems with a localized groundstate

On the basis of this analytical step it can be determined which values the commercial contains and what its relationship to the value system in its surroundings is. The analytical steps of the semiology of commercials, as the most important methodological approach in the anthropological analysis of commercials, is generated from the general semiological approach but can also be “borrowed” from the semiology of visual images, especially the semiology of film.

    Full Text Available La pesca comercial marítima en Argentina nació en Mar del Plata, a finales del siglo XIX, impulsada por la demanda gastronómica de turistas. A pesar del impulso inicial, fue medio siglo después y con la pesca del tiburón vitamínico que se produjo el desarrollo de esta industria extractiva. El estímulo provocado por la exportación de complejos vitamínicos durante la II Guerra Mundial se expresó, entre otras cosas, en el incremento del número de pescadores, en la conformación de una flota más numerosa, moderna y potente, en la incorporación de nuevas terminales pesqueras, en el descubrimiento de caladeros de diferentes especies, en el mejoramiento de las artes y métodos de pesca, en el impulso a la industria conservera y en los inicios de la búsqueda del mercado internacional para los derivados de la pesca. La transformación de Argentina de "país con pesca" a "país pesquero" tuvo en la coyuntural demanda generada por la guerra un capítulo decisivo.Commercial maritime fishing in Argentina was born in Mar del Plata, at the end of the XIX century; it was driven by the gastronomic demand to the tourists. Despite this initial impulse, half a century after and with the fishing of the vitamin shark, the development of this extractive industry began. The encouragement prompted by the exportation of vitamin complex during World War II was expressed by the increase of the number of fishermen, in the conformation of a numerous fleets, which were modern and powerful, in the incorporation of new fishing terminals, en the discovery of cauldrons of different species, in the improvement of the arts and in the methods of fishing, in the impulse to the conservative industry and in the beginnings of the search of the international market for the fishing derivative. The transformation of Argentina from "country with fish" to "fishing country" had a decisive chapter in the favourable demand, generated by the war.

El crecimiento urbano en la costa del Caribe mexicano ha incrementado la contaminación de la zona, por acarreo de residuos. El objetivo del presente estudio fue determinar la diferencia cualitativa y cuantitativa de la carga bacteriana en especies de pescados de importancia comercial, antes y después de procesarse para su comercialización. Se muestreó entre la isla Contoy y bahía de la Ascensión, Quintana Roo, durante la captura y procesado. Se obtuvieron 160 muestras que fueron aisladas y purificadas en agar para Streptococcus y Staphylococcus. Se identificaron siguiendo los criterios de Mc Faddin, y Cowan y Steel. Se aplicó análisis de panel. La contaminación por diferentes especies de Streptococcus y Staphylococcus saprophyticus se registró desde el ambiente de los peces, El manejo durante su comercialización no la incrementó significativamente. El estar conformada por los mismos grupos bacterianos indica contaminación homogénea desde el ambiente marino.

    Emerton, Matthew J

    2017-01-01

    The goal of this memoir is to provide the foundations for the locally analytic representation theory that is required in three of the author's other papers on this topic. In the course of writing those papers the author found it useful to adopt a particular point of view on locally analytic representation theory: namely, regarding a locally analytic representation as being the inductive limit of its subspaces of analytic vectors (of various "radii of analyticity"). The author uses the analysis of these subspaces as one of the basic tools in his study of such representations. Thus in this memoir he presents a development of locally analytic representation theory built around this point of view. The author has made a deliberate effort to keep the exposition reasonably self-contained and hopes that this will be of some benefit to the reader.

    Localization is the problem of estimating the location of an autonomous agent from an observation and a map of the environment. Traditional methods of localization, which filter the belief based on the observations, are sub-optimal in the number of steps required, as they do not decide the actions taken by the agent. We propose "Active Neural Localizer", a fully differentiable neural network that learns to localize accurately and efficiently. The proposed model incorporates ideas of tradition...

    Islands Government to exclude large-scale commercial fishing close to penguin breeding sitesLas islas Falklands son un lugar importante para tres especies de pingüinos, pingüino papua (Pygoscelis papua, pingüino de penacho amarillo (Eudyptes c.chrysocome y pingüino de Magallanes (Spheniscus magallanicus. Recientemente estas especies han disminuido 84 % en estas islas. En la costa de Sudamérica los pingüinos no disminuyeron. Se sospecha que la causa es una reducción de peces y calamares debido a los barcos de pesca comercial que operan en aguas de las Islas Falklands. En 1995 el pingüino papua y el pingüino penacho amarillo terminaron sus disminuciones y ya parece que sus poblaciones están en equilibrio, pero en un número mucho mas bajo que antes que los pescadores comenzaron 20 años atrás. El pingüino de Magallanes todavía disminuye en las Islas Falklands. El pingüino de Magallanes depende más de especies de calamares y peces capturados por barcos de pesca comercial. Avisos de protección de la fauna no fueron suficientes para impedir que 1998 comenzaras exploraciones petroleras en las Islas Falklands. Tres derrames de petróleo ocurrieron en cinco meses, y cientos de pingüinos murieron. La torre de perforación se fue después de cinco meses, y no ocurrieron más derrames de petróleo. Nuevamente van a comenzar a buscar petróleo, sin mejorar la protección para la fauna. El turismo ha crecido rápidamente en las Islas Falklands, y la mayoría de los turistas llegan para ver los pingüinos. Investigaciones de poblaciones y éxito reproductivo indican que aún no hay efectos perjudiciales para los pingüinos por esta actividad. En este trabajo se investigan las causas potenciales de la disminución de pingüinos en las Islas Falklands y se hacen compariciones con poblaciones en Chile que parecen saludables

    Thermodynamics relies on the possibility to describe systems composed of a large number of constituents in terms of few macroscopic variables. Its foundations are rooted into the paradigm of statistical mechanics, where thermal properties originate from averaging procedures which smoothen out local details. While undoubtedly successful, elegant and formally correct, this approach carries over an operational problem, namely determining the precision at which such variables are inferred, when technical/practical limitations restrict our capabilities to local probing. Here we introduce the local quantum thermal susceptibility, a quantifier for the best achievable accuracy for temperature estimation via local measurements. Our method relies on basic concepts of quantum estimation theory, providing an operative strategy to address the local thermal response of arbitrary quantum systems at equilibrium. At low temperatures, it highlights the local distinguishability of the ground state from the excited sub-manifolds, thus providing a method to locate quantum phase transitions.

    2017-06-20

    The use of local anaesthesia in ruminants allows many surgical procedures to be conducted free of pain, efficiently and inexpensively in the field. Local anaesthesia combined with sedation and immobilisation of the animal can replace general anaesthesia for many procedures (e. g. castration, claw amputation). The level of difficulty differs among various local anaesthetic techniques: local infiltration of tissue or anaesthesia of the cornual nerve are easily performed, whereas local anaesthesia of the eye, regional anaesthesia in limbs or anaesthesia for umbilical surgery are more difficult to carry out. This article presents an illustrated overview of the most common local anaesthetic procedures in cattle as well as in small ruminants and serves as a practical guide for veterinarians in the field. In principle, these techniques can likewise be applied in other ruminants or artiodactyls.

    1984-01-01

    Local instant conservation equations for two-phase flow are derived. Derivation of the equation starts from the recording of integral laws of conservation for a fixed reference volume, containing both phases. Transformation of the laws, using the Leibniz rule and Gauss theory permits to obtain the sum of two integrals as to the volume and integral as to the surface. Integrals as to the volume result in local instant differential equations, in particular derivatives for each phase, and integrals as to the surface reflect local instant conditions of a jump on interface surface

    Wolterbeek, H.Th; Verburg, T.G.

    2001-01-01

    The present study was undertaken to explore possibilities to judge survey quality on basis of a limited and restricted number of a-priori observations. Here, quality is defined as the ratio between survey and local variance (signal-to-noise ratio). The results indicate that the presented surveys do not permit such judgement; the discussion also suggests that the 5-fold local sampling strategies do not merit any sound judgement. As it stands, uncertainties in local determinations may largely obscure possibilities to judge survey quality. The results further imply that surveys will benefit from procedures, controls and approaches in sampling and sample handling, to assess both average, variance and the nature of the distribution of elemental concentrations in local sites. This reasoning is compatible with the idea of the site as a basic homogeneous survey unit, which is implicitly and conceptually underlying any survey performed. (author)

  3. Local E11

    Riccioni, Fabio; West, Peter

    2009-01-01

    We give a method of deriving the field-strengths of all massless and massive maximal supergravity theories in any dimension starting from the Kac-Moody algebra E 11 . Considering the subalgebra of E 11 that acts on the fields in the non-linear realisation as a global symmetry, we show how this is promoted to a gauge symmetry enlarging the algebra by the inclusion of additional generators. We show how this works in eleven dimensions, and we call the resulting enlarged algebra E 11 local . Torus reduction to D dimensions corresponds to taking a subalgebra of E 11 local , called E 11,D local , that encodes the full gauge algebra of the corresponding D-dimensional massless supergravity. We show that each massive maximal supergravity in D dimensions is a non-linear realisation of an algebra E-tilde 11,D local . We show how this works in detail for the case of Scherk-Schwarz reduction of IIB to nine dimensions, and in particular we show how E-tilde 11,9 local arises as a subalgebra of the algebra E 11,10B local associated to the ten-dimensional IIB theory. This subalgebra corresponds to taking a combination of generators which is different to the massless case. We then show that E-tilde 11,D local appears as a deformation of the massless algebra E 11,D local in which the commutation relations between the E 11 and the additional generators are modified. We explicitly illustrate how the deformed algebra is constructed in the case of massive IIA and of gauged five-dimensional supergravity. These results prove the naturalness and power of the method.

  4. Desempleo y justicia local

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elster, Jon

    2003-04-01

    Full Text Available In this paper Jon Elster presents a set of criteria of local justice that regulate dismissals. In situations where work is limited and companies adopt means of employment redundancy, the decision of dismissing certain workers —when this one tries not to be arbitrary— can be based on local criteria of fairness like merit, efficiency, age or other analysed in this work. So, after defining the concept of local justice and presenting some examples, the paper focuses on the importance of the work to organize and structure the life of people. Unemployment has serious consequences for the persons who suffer it and the author advises that it is necessary to subordinate dismissals to criteria of local justice.

    En este artículo se presentan una serie de criterios de justicia local para regular los despidos. En situaciones en las que el trabajo es escaso y las empresas adoptan medidas de regulación de empleo, la decisión de despedir a unos trabajadores o a otros se puede basar, cuando se intenta que no sea arbitraria, en criterios locales de equidad como el mérito, la eficacia, la edad u otros que se analizan en este trabajo. Así, tras definir el concepto de justicia local y presentar algunos ejemplos, el artículo se centra en la importancia del trabajo para organizar y estructurar la vida de la gente. Las graves consecuencias que tiene, por ello, el desempleo para quien lo sufre, aconseja que los despidos se sometan a criterios de justicia local.

    The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of packaging in 100% air and vacuum, combined with radiation (2 kGy and 3 kGy, on chicken breast fillet shelf-life by evaluation of bacterial deteriorants growth and pH variation parameters. The vacuum packaging increased shelf-life, when compared to commercial packaging in 100% air, both in non-irradiated and irradiated to 3 kGy fillets. The irradiation increased the shelf-life of fillet samples at both doses. The lactic acid bacteria were the organisms that most developed in irradiated samples, showing greater radioresistance, as compared to other microorganisms studied, while the enterobacteria showed greater sensitivity to treatment with ionizing radiation. The vacuum packaging, combined with irradiation, can be used to improve the safety of chicken breast fillets and to extend its shelf-life.

Foram realizadas análises reológicas, determinados os conteúdos de acetil, piruvato e íons Na+ K+ e Ca2+, e avaliada a capacidade viscosificante segundo norma específica da Petrobras. Os conteúdos de grupos acetil e piruvato para as xantanas e clairana diferiram significativamente entre si, mas foram compatíveis com valores preconizados ou citados na literatura concernente. Com relação ao conteúdo de íons, a xantana comercial apresentou quantidade de cálcio superior, as amostras Xa 06, Xa 82 e Xa 106 tiveram maior teor de potássio e a clairana maior teor de sódio. A viscosidade e a viscoelasticidade da amostra de xantana comercial foram superiores às demais amostras analisadas. Na análise como viscosificante para fluidos de perfuração as amostras de xantana comercial e Xa 106 atingiram os requisitos estabelecidos para os parâmetros n, K e força gel da norma Petrobras N-2605. Com a interpretação conjunta dos resultados obtidos pode-se inferir que apenas as xantanas Xanvis® e Xa 106 apresentam características adequadas à utilização como viscosificante em fluido de perfuração de petróleo.

    Full Text Available Olive oil consumption has grown substantially in recent years, due in part to the fact that olive oil is healthy. Much of the global olive oil production comes from the rural areas of Jaén in southern Spain. Surrounding this industry, services such as oleotourism are increasing. This paper aims to identify the key elements supporting the development of oleotourism. After a preliminary exploratory analysis of the existing data, a qualitative analysis was performed with actors directly involved in the industry in Jaén. The results helped us define the level of the stakeholders’ involvement and the sustainability, the opportunities, and the constraints affecting oleotourism in this area. The practical implications of this investigation can be useful for governing agencies, local firms, and the tourism industry in support of oleotourism development.

    Jardine, John F

    2015-01-01

    This monograph on the homotopy theory of topologized diagrams of spaces and spectra gives an expert account of a subject at the foundation of motivic homotopy theory and the theory of topological modular forms in stable homotopy theory. Beginning with an introduction to the homotopy theory of simplicial sets and topos theory, the book covers core topics such as the unstable homotopy theory of simplicial presheaves and sheaves, localized theories, cocycles, descent theory, non-abelian cohomology, stacks, and local stable homotopy theory. A detailed treatment of the formalism of the subject is interwoven with explanations of the motivation, development, and nuances of ideas and results. The coherence of the abstract theory is elucidated through the use of widely applicable tools, such as Barr's theorem on Boolean localization, model structures on the category of simplicial presheaves on a site, and cocycle categories. A wealth of concrete examples convey the vitality and importance of the subject in topology, n...

  14. Localization of relativistic particles

    Omnes, R.

    1997-01-01

    In order to discuss localization experiments and also to extend the consistent history interpretation of quantum mechanics to relativistic properties, the techniques introduced in a previous paper [J. Math. Phys. 38, 697 (1997)] are applied to the localization of a photon in a given region of space. An essential requirement is to exclude arbitrarily large wavelengths. The method is valid for a particle with any mass and spin. Though there is no proper position operator for a photon, one never needs one in practice. Causality is valid up to exponentially small corrections. copyright 1997 American Institute of Physics

    Control over the quantum dynamics of chaotic kicked rotor systems is demonstrated. Specifically, control over a number of quantum coherent phenomena is achieved by a simple modification of the kicking field. These include the enhancement of the dynamical localization length, the introduction of classical anomalous diffusion assisted control for systems far from the semiclassical regime, and the observation of a variety of strongly nonexponential line shapes for dynamical localization. The results provide excellent examples of controlled quantum dynamics in a system that is classically chaotic and offer opportunities to explore quantum fluctuations and correlations in quantum chaos

  9. Cerebral localization in antiquity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rose, F Clifford

    2009-07-01

    Fragments of neurology can be found in the oldest medical writings in antiquity. Recognizable cerebral localization is seen in Egyptian medical papyri. Most notably, the Edwin Smith papyrus describes hemiplegia after a head injury. Similar echoes can be seen in Homer, the Bible, and the pre-Hippocratic writer Alcmaeon of Croton. While Biblical writers thought that the heart was the seat of the soul, Hippocratic writers located it in the head. Alexandrian anatomists described the nerves, and Galen developed the ventricular theory of cognition whereby mental functions are classified and localized in one of the cerebral ventricles. Medieval scholars, including the early Church Fathers, modified Galenic ventricular theory so as to make it a dynamic model of cognition. Physicians in antiquity subdivided the brain into separate areas and attributed to them different functions, a phenomenon that connects them with modern neurologists.

  10. Are quasars local

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Terrell, J.

    1974-01-01

    The problems of interpreting quasars as galaxies, at distances of billions of light-years, seem to be increasing with time and with observational knowledge. The incredibly large energy and brightness requirements, the very small size and thus high surface brightness required by their rapid fluctuations in luminosity, the recently-discovered radio-source separation speeds apparently much greater than the speed of light, their general lack of association with distant galaxies, and many other properties are all very difficult to explain on the basis of cosmological distance. The very local quasar model, involving much less massive and bright objects--perhaps similar to Type O stars--emitted at relativistic speeds by the center of our own galaxy, greatly eases these difficulties. Since such ejected objects also seem necessary to explain the similarly strange properties of radio galaxies, the emission of local quasars from some galaxies might be deduced on this basis alone.

    2014-07-01

    This work is concerned with thermal quantum states of Hamiltonians on spin- and fermionic-lattice systems with short-range interactions. We provide results leading to a local definition of temperature, thereby extending the notion of "intensivity of temperature" to interacting quantum models. More precisely, we derive a perturbation formula for thermal states. The influence of the perturbation is exactly given in terms of a generalized covariance. For this covariance, we prove exponential clustering of correlations above a universal critical temperature that upper bounds physical critical temperatures such as the Curie temperature. As a corollary, we obtain that above the critical temperature, thermal states are stable against distant Hamiltonian perturbations. Moreover, our results imply that above the critical temperature, local expectation values can be approximated efficiently in the error and the system size.

  12. Brane-Localized Gravity

    CERN Document Server

    Mannheim, Philip D

    2005-01-01

    This timely and valuable book provides a detailed pedagogical introduction and treatment of the brane-localized gravity program of Randall and Sundrum, in which gravitational signals are able to localize around our four-dimensional world in the event that it is a brane embedded in an infinitely-sized, higher dimensional anti-de Sitter bulk space. A completely self-contained development of the material needed for brane-world studies is provided for both students and workers in the field, with a significant amount of the material being previously unpublished. Particular attention is given to issues not ordinarily treated in the brane-world literature, such as the completeness of tensor gravitational fluctuation modes, the causality of brane-world propagators, and the status of the massless graviton fluctuation mode in brane worlds in which it is not normalizable.

  17. Local dependency in networks

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kudĕlka Miloš

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Many real world data and processes have a network structure and can usefully be represented as graphs. Network analysis focuses on the relations among the nodes exploring the properties of each network. We introduce a method for measuring the strength of the relationship between two nodes of a network and for their ranking. This method is applicable to all kinds of networks, including directed and weighted networks. The approach extracts dependency relations among the network’s nodes from the structure in local surroundings of individual nodes. For the tasks we deal with in this article, the key technical parameter is locality. Since only the surroundings of the examined nodes are used in computations, there is no need to analyze the entire network. This allows the application of our approach in the area of large-scale networks. We present several experiments using small networks as well as large-scale artificial and real world networks. The results of the experiments show high effectiveness due to the locality of our approach and also high quality node ranking comparable to PageRank.

  18. Local orbit feedback

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Anon.

    1991-01-01

    Critically aligned experiments are sensitive to small changes in the electron beam orbit. At the NSLS storage rings, the electron beam and photon beam motions have been monitored over the past several years. In the survey conducted in 1986 by the NSLS Users Executive Committee, experimenters requested the vertical beam position variation and the vertical angle variation, within a given fill, remain within 10 μm and 10 μr, respectively. This requires improvement in the beam stability by about one order of magnitude. At the NSLS and SSRL storage rings, the beam that is originally centered on the position monitor by a dc orbit correction is observed to have two kinds of motion: a dc drift over a storage period of several hours and a beam bounce about its nominal position. These motions are a result of the equilibrium orbit not being held perfectly stable due to time-varying errors introduced into the magnetic guide field by power supplies, mechanical vibration of the magnets, cooling water temperature variations, etc. The approach to orbit stabilization includes (1) identifying and suppressing as many noise sources on the machine as possible, (2) correcting the beam position globally (see Section 6) by controlling a number of correctors around the circumference of the machine, and (3) correcting the beam position and angle at a given source location by position feedback using local detectors and local orbit bumps. The third approach, called Local Orbit Feedback will be discussed in this section

  19. Local variances in biomonitoring

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Wolterbeek, H.T.

    1999-01-01

    The present study deals with the (larger-scaled) biomonitoring survey and specifically focuses on the sampling site. In most surveys, the sampling site is simply selected or defined as a spot of (geographical) dimensions which is small relative to the dimensions of the total survey area. Implicitly it is assumed that the sampling site is essentially homogeneous with respect to the investigated variation in survey parameters. As such, the sampling site is mostly regarded as 'the basic unit' of the survey. As a logical consequence, the local (sampling site) variance should also be seen as a basic and important characteristic of the survey. During the study, work is carried out to gain more knowledge of the local variance. Multiple sampling is carried out at a specific site (tree bark, mosses, soils), multi-elemental analyses are carried out by NAA, and local variances are investigated by conventional statistics, factor analytical techniques, and bootstrapping. Consequences of the outcomes are discussed in the context of sampling, sample handling and survey quality. (author)

    Full Text Available Studies on local journalism as an important element of participatory democracy generally focus on the history of the local press, the financial insufficiencies of local newspapers as well as technical/ technological incompetency that occurs as a result of these factors. This research analyzes local newspapers with a new scientific point of view by focusing on the perception of locality as a mental projection of geographical constraint. Perspectives regarding the transformations on perceptions of locality as a result of the disappearance of time and space constraints due to new communication technologies, and the opportunities that new communication environments offer to local newspapers will be provided. Moreover, the ways in which local newspapers reflect on locality with their printed versions under time and space constraints will be analyzed. The research scope of the study has been limited to 15 newspapers in Konya. Structured interviews and content analysis methods were used for data collection and analysis.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2010-09-15

    The CANDU pressurized heavy water reactor's principal design features suit it particularly well for technology transfer and localization. When the first commercial CANDU reactors of 540 MWe entered service in 1971, Canada's population of less than 24 million supported a 'medium' level of industrial development, lacking the heavy industrial capabilities of larger countries like the USA, Japan and Europe. A key motivation for Canada in developing the CANDU design was to ensure that Canada would have the autonomous capacity to build and operate nuclear power reactors without depending on foreign sources for key components or enriched fuel.

  5. Localized Acoustic Surface Modes

    KAUST Repository

    Farhat, Mohamed

    2015-08-04

    We introduce the concept of localized acoustic surface modes (ASMs). We demonstrate that they are induced on a two-dimensional cylindrical rigid surface with subwavelength corrugations under excitation by an incident acoustic plane wave. Our results show that the corrugated rigid surface is acoustically equivalent to a cylindrical scatterer with uniform mass density that can be represented using a Drude-like model. This, indeed, suggests that plasmonic-like acoustic materials can be engineered with potential applications in various areas including sensing, imaging, and cloaking.

  7. Pattern Driven Stress Localization

    Science.gov (United States)

    Croll, Andrew; Crosby, Alfred

    2010-03-01

    The self-assembly of patterns from isotropic initial states is a major driver of modern soft-matter research. This avenue of study is directed by the desire to understand the complex physics of the varied structures found in Nature, and by technological interest in functional materials that may be derived through biomimicry. In this work we show how a simple striped phase can respond with significant complexity to an appropriately chosen perturbation. In particular, we show how a buckled elastic plate transitions into a state of stress localization using a simple, self-assembled variation in surface topography. The collection of topographic boundaries act in concert to change the state from isotropic sinusoidal wrinkles, to sharp folds or creases separated by relatively flat regions. By varying the size of the imposed topographic pattern or the wavelength of the wrinkles, we construct a state diagram of the system. The localized state has implications for both biological systems, and for the control of non-linear pattern formation.

  8. [Localized scleroderma (morphea)].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bono, Waafa; Dupin, Nicolas

    2006-12-01

    DEFINITION AND FREQUENCY: Localized scleroderma, also known as morphea, is a sclerotic condition limited to the skin. The specific clinical entity depends on the extent, linear disposition and depth of the lesions. Morphea is ten times more prevalent than systemic sclerosis, and its prognosis is generally good: superficial forms resolve within 3 years. In the absence of symptoms, examinations to detect systemic involvement are purposeless. Plaque morphea is the most frequent clinical presentation. Serious manifestations include extensive morphea that may involve the entire skin or linear forms, especially in children, where they may be severe, especially on the face. There are no immunological markers clearly associated with morphea and no causative agents have been implicated in its pathogenesis, although sclerodermiform dermatitis is reported to be associated with some drugs and toxic agents. There is no consensual treatment for morphea. Treatment should be decided according to severity and extent of lesions. Limited lesions may be treated with local steroids such as class IV corticosteroids. Systemic treatment (methotrexate) should be discussed in extensive and linear forms when there is a risk of functional or esthetic complications.

  9. Locality and reality

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Stapp, H.P.

    1980-01-01

    Einstein's principle that no signal travels faster than light suggests that observations in one spacetime region should not depend on whether or not a radioactive decay is detected in a spacelike-separated region. This locality property is incompatible with the predictions of quantum theory, and this incompatibility holds independently of the questions of realism, objective reality, and hidden variables. It holds both in the pragmatic quantum theory of Bohr and in realistic frameworks. It is shown here to hold in a completed realistic quantum theory that reconciles Einstein's demand for a description of reality itself with Bohr's contention that quantum theory is complete. This completed realistic quantum theory has no hidden variables, and no objective reality in which observable attributes can become definite independently of observers. The theory is described in some detail, with particular attention to those aspects related to the question of locality. This completed realistic quantum theory is in principle more comprehensive than Bohn's pragmatic quantum theory because it is not limited in principle by the requirement that the observed system be physically separated from the observing one. Applications are discussed

  10. Act local, think global

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lewis, Chris; McRoberts, Doug

    2002-01-01

    Tip O'Neill, one of the grand old men of modem US politics, once famously remarked that all politics is local. Like most politicians who succeed on the national stage - and not just in the US - it was a truth he never lost sight of. What is true for politicians is equally true in the communications business. We may increasingly live in a global village, but successful companies - even multi-nationals - forget the importance of local and regional public relations at their peril. Think of Douglas Ivester, the CEO of Coca-Cola at the time of the 1999 Belgian contamination scandal, who allegedly reacted to first reports of the crisis by asking: 'Where the hell is Belgium?' A more appropriate question today - several years after Coke's share price toppled and the CEO was unceremoniously sacked - might be: 'Who the hell is Douglas Nester?' But - to adapt another famous phrase - the fact that communications (and marketing) professionals still need to 'act local' as much as ever before should not blind us to the growing need to 'think global'. In the nuclear industry, as in the world economy generally, increasing global integration is a reality, as are the international nature of the news media and the increasingly global nature of the anti-nuclear pressure groups. Indeed, it was the growing need for a truly global information network to counter these trends, by increasing the overall speed and accuracy of the worldwide nuclear information flow, that led the nuclear community to establish NucNet in 1991. So where exactly is the line between local and regional nuclear communications on the one hand, and global communications on the other? Is there one spin for a regional audience, and another for a global audience? This presentation proposes some guiding principles, by examining the response of nuclear communicators world-wide to the new communications agenda imposed in the wake of the September 11th suicide attacks in the US.

    1993-01-01

    This paper describes research concerning the effects of human engineering design at local control stations (i.e., operator interfaces located outside the control room) on human performance and plant safety. The research considered both multifunction panels (e.g. remote shutdown panels) as well as single-function interfaces (e.g., valves, breakers, gauges, etc.). Changes in performance shaping factors associated with variations in human engineering at LCSs were estimated based on expert opinion. By means of a scaling procedure, these estimates were used to modify the human error probabilities in a PRA model, which was then employed to generate estimates of plant risk and scoping-level value/impact ratios for various human engineering upgrades. Recent documentation of human engineering deficiencies at single-function LCSs was also reviewed, and an assessment of the current status of LCSs with respect to human engineering was conducted

    From 1966 to 1985, 103 patients with a localized follicular lymphoma were treated at the Fondation Bergonie. Clinical staging was performed using, after physical examination, chest X-rays, bipedal lymphangiography and unilateral bone marrow biopsy (BMB). The patients were then treated by radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy. Overall survival (OS) at 5 and 10 years is 69 and 56.3%, respectively. Relapse-free survival (RFS) is 53.7 and 49%. Unifactorial analysis shows three prognostic parameters to be independently significant in terms of OS: age, stage and B symptons. In terms of RFS, only 2 factors are significant: age and B symptons. Multivariate analysis (Cox model) shows that age is a more important prognostic factor than stage. 40 refs.; 3 figs.; 3 tabs

  19. The Local Fractional Bootstrap

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Bennedsen, Mikkel; Hounyo, Ulrich; Lunde, Asger

    We introduce a bootstrap procedure for high-frequency statistics of Brownian semistationary processes. More specifically, we focus on a hypothesis test on the roughness of sample paths of Brownian semistationary processes, which uses an estimator based on a ratio of realized power variations. Our...... new resampling method, the local fractional bootstrap, relies on simulating an auxiliary fractional Brownian motion that mimics the fine properties of high frequency differences of the Brownian semistationary process under the null hypothesis. We prove the first order validity of the bootstrap method...... and in simulations we observe that the bootstrap-based hypothesis test provides considerable finite-sample improvements over an existing test that is based on a central limit theorem. This is important when studying the roughness properties of time series data; we illustrate this by applying the bootstrap method...

  2. Inference for local autocorrelations in locally stationary models.

    2015-04-01

    For non-stationary processes, the time-varying correlation structure provides useful insights into the underlying model dynamics. We study estimation and inferences for local autocorrelation process in locally stationary time series. Our constructed simultaneous confidence band can be used to address important hypothesis testing problems, such as whether the local autocorrelation process is indeed time-varying and whether the local autocorrelation is zero. In particular, our result provides an important generalization of the R function acf() to locally stationary Gaussian processes. Simulation studies and two empirical applications are developed. For the global temperature series, we find that the local autocorrelations are time-varying and have a "V" shape during 1910-1960. For the S&P 500 index, we conclude that the returns satisfy the efficient-market hypothesis whereas the magnitudes of returns show significant local autocorrelations.

    2009-01-01

    Full text. The principles of physics admit (unobservable) quantum fields which are localized not on points, but on strings in the sense of Mandelstam: a string emanates from a point in Minkowski space and extends to infinity in some space-like direction. This type of localization might permit the construction of new models, for various reasons: (a) in general, weaker localization implies better UV behaviour. Therefore, the class of renormalizable interactions in the string-localized has a chance to be larger than in the point-localized case; (b) for certain particle types, there are no point-localized (free) quantum fields - for example Anyons in d = 2 + 1, and Wigner's massless 'infinite spin' particles. For the latter, free string-localized quantum fields have been constructed; (c) in contrast to the point-localized case, string-localization admits covariant vector/tensor potentials for fotons and gravitons in a Hilbert space representation with positive energy. We shall present free string-localized quantum fields for various particle types, and some ideas about the perturbative construction of interacting string-localized fields. A central point will be an analogue of gauge theories, completely within a Hilbert space and without ghosts, trading gauge dependence with dependence on the direction of the localization string. In order to discuss renormalizability (item (a)), methods from microlocal analysis (wave front set and scaling degree) are needed. (author)

    The efficiencies of a great number of techniques for decontamination or dose reduction in contaminated areas have been investigated by several teams of E.C. and CIS scientists (ECP4 project). Modelling, laboratory and field experiments, t and return from experience allowed to assess radiological efficiencies (e.g. 'decontamination factor') and requirements for the operation of numerous practical solutions. Then, those data were supplemented with data on cost and waste generation in order to elaborate all the information for the optimization of decontamination strategies. Results will be presented for about 70 techniques. However, a technique cannot be compared to another from a generic point of view. Rather it is designed for a specific target and the best technology depends on the objectives. It has been decided to implement decision analyses on case studies, and the local conditions and objectives have been investigated. Individual doses ranged from 1 to 5 mSv, with contrasted contributions of internal and external doses. The desire to restore a normal activity in a partially depopulated settlement, and concerns about the recent increase in internal doses were typical incentives for action. The decision aiding analysis illustrated that actions can be usually recommended. Results are outlined here.

    2004-01-01

    In Norway, new regulations on radiation protection and application of radiation came into force on the first of January 2004. Local authorities may now perform the supervision of solariums. There are over 500 solar studios in Norway, with over 5000 solariums accessible to the public. An unknown number of solariums are in private homes, on workplaces, and in hotels and fitness studios. Norway currently has the highest frequency of skin cancer in Europe. The frequency of mole cancer has increased sixfold during the last 30 years, and 200 people die each year of this type of cancer. The Nordic cancer registers estimate that 95 per cent of the skin cancer incidences would have been avoided by limiting sunbathing. It is unknown how many cases are due to the use of solariums. But several studies indicate increased risk of mole cancer caused by solariums. It was found in previous inspection of 130 solariums that only 30 per cent had correct tubes and lamps. Only one solarium satisfied all the requirements of the regulations. But this has since improved. With the new regulations, all solarium businesses offering cosmetic solariums for sale, renting out or use have an obligation to submit reports to the Radiation Protection Authority

  11. On the local equilibrium condition

    Hessling, H.

    1994-11-01

    A physical system is in local equilibrium if it cannot be distinguished from a global equilibrium by ''infinitesimally localized measurements''. This should be a natural characterization of local equilibrium, but the problem is to give a precise meaning to the qualitative phrase ''infinitesimally localized measurements''. A solution is suggested in form of a Local Equilibrium Condition (LEC), which can be applied to linear relativistic quantum field theories but not directly to selfinteracting quantum fields. The concept of local temperature resulting from LEC is compared to an old approach to local temperature based on the principle of maximal entropy. It is shown that the principle of maximal entropy does not always lead to physical states if it is applied to relativistic quantum field theories. (orig.)

    After diagnosis of primary aldosteronism on the basis of biochemical evidence, the detection of the tumour is of crucial importance in the management of the disease. The efficacy of CT-Scan, Iodo-Cholesterol Scintigraphy, digitalized phlebography, adrenal vein sampling for steroid measurements (AVS), and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) in 160 hypertensive patients with primary aldosteronism was reviewed. Diagnosis of Conn's adenoma (n=96) or Adrenal Hyperplasia (n=40) was confirmed by surgery or at least two concordant tumour localization tests. Scintigraphy gave a correct diagnosis in 53% of the 51 exams, CT-Scan in 82% of the 85 exams, and phlebography in 79% of 61 exams. Plasma Aldosterone/ Cortisol ratio was 5 times higher on the side of adenoma in 55% of the 47 cases but this ratio was also present in 23% of 22 patients with adrenal hyperplasia. Each procedure exhibited few false positive and false negative cases. NMR performed in 15 patients with Conn's adenoma identified all the cases. But tumours displayed a signal close to the liver signal and identical to the normal adrenal. These results and the risk of invasive procedure (failure of catheterization of the right adrenal vein (n=6) and adrenal haematoma (n=2) lead to propose a schema of exploration of patients with primary aldosteronism. The CT-Scan could be performed at the first step once the biological diagnosis confirmed. Phlebography and AVS will be performed only if tumour was less than 1 cm at the CT-Scan despite important biological abnormalities. This schema requires to be validated by a prospective evaluation [fr

  13. Indigeneity: global and local.

    Merlan, Francesca

    2009-06-01

    The term indigenous, long used to distinguish between those who are "native" and their "others" in specific locales, has also become a term for a geocultural category, presupposing a world collectivity of "indigenous peoples" in contrast to their various "others." Many observers have noted that the stimuli for internationalization of the indigenous category originated principally from particular nation-states-Anglo-American settler colonies and Scandinavia. All, I argue, are relevantly political cultures of liberal democracy and weighty (in different ways) in international institutional affairs. However, international indigeneity has not been supported in any unqualified way by actions taken in the name of several nation-states that were among its main points of origin. In fact, staunch resistance to the international indigenous project has recently come from four of them. In 2007, the only four voting countries to reject the main product of international indigenist activity over the past 30 years, the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, were Australia, the United States, Canada, and New Zealand. In these locations, forms of "indigenous relationship" emerged that launched international indigeneity and that strongly influenced international perceptions of what "indigeneity" is and who "indigenous peoples" may be. Some other countries say the model of indigenous relationship that they see represented by the "establishing" set is inapplicable to themselves (but have nonetheless had to take notice of expanding internationalist indigenism). The apparently paradoxical rejection of the draft declaration by the establishing countries is consistent with the combination of enabling and constraining forces that liberal democratic political cultures offer.

  14. All strategy is local.

    Greenwald, Bruce; Kahn, Judd

    2005-09-01

    The aim of strategy is to master a market environment by understanding and anticipating the actions of other economic agents, especially competitors. A firm that has some sort of competitive advantage-privileged access to customers, for instance--will have relatively few competitors to contend with, since potential competitors without an advantage, if they have their wits about them, will stay away. Thus, competitive advantages are actually barriers to entry and vice versa. In markets that are exposed, by contrast, competition is intense. If the incumbents have even brief success in earning greater than normal returns on investments, new entrants will swarm in to grab a share of the profits. Sooner or later, the additional competition will push returns as far down as the firms' costs of capital. For firms operating in such markets, the only choice is to forget about strategy and run the business as efficiently as possible. Barriers to entry are easier to maintain in a competitive arena that is "local", either in the geographic sense or in the sense of being limited to one product or a handful of related ones. The two most powerful competitive advantages-customer captivity and economies of scale-are more achievable and sustainable in circumscribed markets of this kind. Their opposites are the open markets and host of rivals that are features of globalization. Compapies entering such markets risk frittering away the advantages they secured on smaller playing fields.., Ifa company wants to grow but still obtain superior returns, the authors argue, the best strategy is to dominate a series of discrete but preferably contiguous markets and then expand only at their edges. WalMart's diminishing margins over the past 15 years are strong evidence of the danger of proceeding otherwise.

The volume consists of nine chapters divided into four parts: arithmetic properties of local fields, class field theory for various types of local fields and generalizations, explicit formulas for the Hilbert pairing, and Milnor K-groups of fields and of local fields. The first three parts essentially simplify, revise, and update the first edition. This second edition contains about sixty additional pages reflecting several aspects of the developments in local number theory in the last ten years. Exercises point to many other paths for exploration. The book is designed for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in local number theory and its applications in arithmetic algebraic geometry.

It is illustrated by many field examples which show how actors have been able to (re)gain control of the energy issue. In the first part in which they present the main issues, the authors outline that local authorities are in front line for a European energy transition, recall the French legal framework for local energy transition, describe how to address local energy self-sufficiency, and comment stakes and levers for energy transition financing. The second part deals with action. The authors there describe how to manage a local energy transition, how to act transversally, how to get citizen involved, and how to relate energy transition and local development

    Local government in the Netherlands could play a greater role than they currently do in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the country. This fact formed the motivation for initiating the research project on Local Government and Climate Policy. Many local climate options are known in theory. Options for reduction that lie within the sphere of influence of Dutch local government are, for example, sustainable building or encouraging the utilisation of sustainable energy. But actual practice turns out to be rather refractory. If such options are to be implemented, then one has to overcome institutional barriers, such as the co-operation between different departments in the same local authority. The objective of this research is to improve the contribution that local government makes to climate policy

    Full Text Available Extensive work has been done on the vibration characteristics of perfectly periodic structures. Disorder in the periodic pattern has been found to lead to localization in one-dimensional periodic structures. It is important to understand localization because it causes energy to be concentrated near the disorder and may cause an overestimation of structural damping. A numerical study is conducted to obtain a better understanding of localization. It is found that any mode, even the first, can localize due to the presence of small imperfections.

With regard to parasternal skin reactions postoperatively irradiated breast cancer, dry and moist desquamation, which occasionally occurred with conventional irradiation was not observed in combination with local cooling. As for head and neck tumors, patients who complained of stomatitis decreased with the local cooling, and no one wanted a pause in irradiation before 40 Gy. As local hypothermia is free from danger and does not require special equipment, it was considered to be widely applicable. (author)

Among these are fields that generate the irreducible representations of mass zero and infinite spin that are known to be incompatible with point-like localized fields. For the massive representation and the massless representations of finite helicity, all string-localized free fields can be written as an integral, along the string, of point-localized tensor or spinor fields. As a special case we discuss the string-localized vector fields associated with the point-like electromagnetic field and their relation to the axial gauge condition in the usual setting. (author)

    Full Text Available Several studies have shown the antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of turmeric (Curcuma longa, widely used in food industry as a colorant, among other functions. The aim of this study was to determine the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of turmeric essential oil against pathogenic bacteria and to study the influence of the addition of ascorbic acid on the prevention of polyphenols oxidation. The commercial turmeric essential oil alone did not show bactericidal activity against the microorganisms studied, Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella typhimurium, but when combined with ascorbic acid, it showed significant antibacterial activity. The highest antimicrobial activity of turmeric essential oil against Salmonella typhimurium was 15.0 ± 1.41 mm at the concentration of 2.30 mg.mL-1 of essential oil and 2.0 mg.mL-1 of ascorbic acid. With regard to Listeria monocytogenes, the largest zone of inhibition (13.7 ± 0.58 mm was obtained at the same concentrations.

    Full Text Available The distillation process was periodically monitored, on Campo Largo-PR, in “CHAMEL Ind. e Com. De Produtos Naturais LTDA.”, in the 2005 harvest. The hydrodistillation and GC-MS analyses were done in the UFPR Laboratories. The obtained data indicate that the chamomile essential oil extracted through the distiller model used presented low quality. Great part of the essential oil, besides their main components, it was being lost with the hidrolato. In the distillation process the periodic evaluation of quality and efficiency indicators is indispensable to establish appropriate operational conditions.Com o objetivo de avaliar o rendimento e a composição química do óleo essencial de camomila submetida a um sistema de extração por arraste de vapor, em escala comercial, monitorou-se periodicamente o processo realizado, no município de Campo Largo – PR, num modelo utilizado pela “CHAMEL Ind.

    Full Text Available In this paper we describe a localization and local communication system which allows situated agents to communicate locally, obtaining at the same time both the range and the bearing of the emitter without the need of any centralized control or any external reference. The system relies on infrared communications with frequency modulation and is composed of two interconnected modules for data and power measurement. Thanks to the open hardware license under which it is released, the research community can easily replicate the system at a low cost and/or adapt it for applications in sensor networks and in robotics.

  9. Non-local charges in local quantum field theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Buchholz, D.; Lopuszanski, J.T.; Rabsztyn, S.

    1985-05-01

    Non-local charges are studied in the general setting of local quantum field theory. It is shown, that these charges can be represented as polynomials in the incoming respectively outgoing fields with coefficients (kernels) which are subject to specific constraints. For the restricted class of models of a scalar, massive, self interacting particle in four dimensions, a more detailed analysis shows that all non-local charges of the generic type (genus 2) are products of generators of the Poincare group. This analysis, which is based on the macroscopic causality properties of the S-matrix, seems to indicate that less trivial examples of non-local charges can only exist in two dimensions. (orig.)

    1991-01-01

    Policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from present levels will require changes in local and regional decision making as well as decisions made at national and multinational scales. A number of cities and states have taken action to reduce emissions either directly or as a byproduct of solving local problems such as air quality. These initiatives represent a potential resource to be mobilized in national policy. A series of case studies is under way to understand the decision making involved and its implications, and to identify ways that national policy might support and benefit from local efforts. Preliminary results from the first of these case studies indicate that reductions in greenhouse gas emissions may be greater when set as a direct target than when resulting as a byproduct of other local problem solving

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available We present an efficient vision-based global topological localization approach in which different image features are used in a coarse-to-fine matching framework. Orientation Adjacency Coherence Histogram (OACH, a novel image feature, is proposed to improve the coarse localization. The coarse localization results are taken as inputs for the fine localization which is carried out by matching Harris-Laplace interest points characterized by the SIFT descriptor. The computation of OACHs and interest points is efficient due to the fact that these features are computed in an integrated process. The matching of local features is improved by using approximate nearest neighbor searching technique. We have implemented and tested the localization system in real environments. The experimental results demonstrate that our approach is efficient and reliable in both indoor and outdoor environments. This work has also been compared with previous works. The comparison results show that our approach has better performance with higher correct ratio and lower computational complexity.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available In contrast to previous discussions in the literature treating cosmopolitan and local as two distinct groups of scientists, this paperi demonstrates the notion of cosmopolitan and local as a dual orientation of highly motivated scientists. This dual orientation is derived from institutional motivation, which is a determinant of both high quality basic research and accomplishment of non-research organizational activities. The dual orientation arises in a context of similarity of the institutional goal of science with the goal of the organization; the distinction between groups of locals and cosmopolitans derives from a conflict between two goals.

We also find the lowest possible amount of some appropriate entangled state that must be ad-mixed to the bound entangled state so that the resulting density operator has no local and realistic description and as such can be useful in quantum communication and quantum computation

    The widespread belief that local minima exist in the least squares lens-design error function is not confirmed by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) optimization program. LASL finds the optimum-mimimum region, which is characterized by small parameter gradients of similar size, small performance improvement per iteration, and many designs that give similar performance. Local minima and unique prescriptions have not been found in many-parameter problems. The reason for these absences is that image errors caused by a change in one parameter can be compensated by changes in the remaining parameters. False local minima have been found, and four cases are discussed

    Bauer, Michael; Dietrich, Christof; Nowak, Katharina; Sierralta, Walter D; Papenbrock, Jutta

    2004-06-01

    Sulfurtransferases (Str) comprise a group of enzymes widely distributed in archaea, eubacteria, and eukaryota which catalyze the transfer of a sulfur atom from suitable sulfur donors to nucleophilic sulfur acceptors. In all organisms analyzed to date, small gene families encoding Str proteins have been identified. The gene products were localized to different compartments of the cells. Our interest concerns the localization of Str proteins encoded in the nuclear genome of Arabidopsis. Computer-based prediction methods revealed localization in different compartments of the cell for six putative AtStrs. Several methods were used to determine the localization of the AtStr proteins experimentally. For AtStr1, a mitochondrial localization was demonstrated by immunodetection in the proteome of isolated mitochondria resolved by one- and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and subsequent blotting. The respective mature AtStr1 protein was identified by mass spectrometry sequencing. The same result was obtained by transient expression of fusion constructs with the green fluorescent protein in Arabidopsis protoplasts, whereas AtStr2 was exclusively localized to the cytoplasm by this method. Three members of the single-domain AtStr were localized in the chloroplasts as demonstrated by transient expression of green fluorescent protein fusions in protoplasts and stomata, whereas the single-domain AtStr18 was shown to be cytoplasmic. The remarkable subcellular distribution of AtStr15 was additionally analyzed by transmission electron immunomicroscopy using a monospecific antibody against green fluorescent protein, indicating an attachment to the thylakoid membrane. The knowledge of the intracellular localization of the members of this multiprotein family will help elucidate their specific functions in the organism.

  9. Generic Local Hamiltonians are Gapless

    Science.gov (United States)

    Movassagh, Ramis

    2017-12-01

    We prove that generic quantum local Hamiltonians are gapless. In fact, we prove that there is a continuous density of states above the ground state. The Hamiltonian can be on a lattice in any spatial dimension or on a graph with a bounded maximum vertex degree. The type of interactions allowed for include translational invariance in a disorder (i.e., probabilistic) sense with some assumptions on the local distributions. Examples include many-body localization and random spin models. We calculate the scaling of the gap with the system's size when the local terms are distributed according to a Gaussian β orthogonal random matrix ensemble. As a corollary, there exist finite size partitions with respect to which the ground state is arbitrarily close to a product state. When the local eigenvalue distribution is discrete, in addition to the lack of an energy gap in the limit, we prove that the ground state has finite size degeneracies. The proofs are simple and constructive. This work excludes the important class of truly translationally invariant Hamiltonians where the local terms are all equal.

    We investigate the conditions under which a set S of pure bipartite quantum states on a DxD system can be locally cloned deterministically by separable operations, when at least one of the states is full Schmidt rank. We allow for the possibility of cloning using a resource state that is less than maximally entangled. Our results include that: (i) all states in S must be full Schmidt rank and equally entangled under the G-concurrence measure, and (ii) the set S can be extended to a larger clonable set generated by a finite group G of order |G|=N, the number of states in the larger set. It is then shown that any local cloning apparatus is capable of cloning a number of states that divides D exactly. We provide a complete solution for two central problems in local cloning, giving necessary and sufficient conditions for (i) when a set of maximally entangled states can be locally cloned, valid for all D; and (ii) local cloning of entangled qubit states with nonvanishing entanglement. In both of these cases, we show that a maximally entangled resource is necessary and sufficient, and the states must be related to each other by local unitary 'shift' operations. These shifts are determined by the group structure, so need not be simple cyclic permutations. Assuming this shifted form and partially entangled states, then in D=3 we show that a maximally entangled resource is again necessary and sufficient, while for higher-dimensional systems, we find that the resource state must be strictly more entangled than the states in S. All of our necessary conditions for separable operations are also necessary conditions for local operations and classical communication (LOCC), since the latter is a proper subset of the former. In fact, all our results hold for LOCC, as our sufficient conditions are demonstrated for LOCC, directly.

    1976-01-01

    The nucleon--nucleus local potential (central and spin--orbit) and the deuteron--nucleus nonlocal potential (central, spin--orbit, spin--radial tensor) are calculated by the folding-model (FM). Simple analytic expressions are obtained for the nucleon--nucleus potential by the use of Gaussians to represent the nucleon--nucleus potential and the charge and mass densities of the target. The analytic expressions give qualitative descriptions of phenomenological nucleon--nucleus interactions. A systematic target--mass dependence of realistic local FM deueron potentials is also included. Local-equivalent, energy-dependent, deuteron potentials are obtained from the nonlocal FM deuteron potentials and the energy dependence of the local potential parameters are presented. The local FM deuteron potential is tested for 60 Ni(d,d) 60 Ni at E/sub α/ = 15 MeV by comparing the predictions of the FM potentials with data in which all five polarization moments were measured. A qualitative fit to the data is obtained, but it overestimates the volume integral of the central potential by 7%. Energy-dependence effects are estimated by evaluating the local-equivalent potentials at E/sub α/ = 30 MeV and comparing the predictions to the E/sub α/ = 15 MeV potentials. The energy dependence of the central potential dominates the angular dependence of all five observables while the energy dependence of the spin--orbit and tensor potentials produces only scale changes (approx. 3%) in the vector and tensor analyzing powers. The scattering formalism for a spin-1 on a spin-0 target nucleus, and a description of the coupled--channels computer code DDUNC1 which treats the spin--radial tensor potential exactly, are included

O ambiente produtivo foi avaliado por meio do índice de conforto térmico, nível de ruído e de iluminância. Mapas de distribuição espacial destas variáveis foram gerados para o interior do galpão, usando o método da krigagem. Com base nos resultados, pode-se concluir que as aves, de forma geral, estiveram submetidas a condições ambientais inadequados à criação nos horários mais quentes do dia. Porém, verificou-se o potencial de exploração do sistema de resfriamento evaporativo. A espacialização das variáveis relacionadas ao ambiente produtivo proporciona a obtenção de informações mais detalhadas sobre o sistema estudado.The goal of this study was to evaluate and map the thermo-acoustic and the luminance variables inside of a commercial broiler chicken house equipped with conventional ventilation and misting system.

  2. Local Government Internal Audit Compliance

    Full Text Available Local government councils (LGC rely on a number of funding sources including state and federal governments as well as their community constituents to enable them to provide a range of public services. Given the constraints on these funding sources councils need to have in place a range of strategies and policies capable of providing good governance and must appropriately discharge their financial accountabilities. To assist LGC with meeting their governance and accountability obligations they often seek guidance from their key stakeholders. For example, in the Australian State of New South Wales (NSW, the Office of Local Government has developed a set of guidelines, the Internal Audit Guidelines. In 2010 the NSW Office of Local Government issued revised guidelines emphasising that an internal audit committee is an essential component of good governance. In addition, the guidelines explained that to improve the governance and accountability of the councils, these committees should be composed of a majority of independent members. To maintain committee independence the guidelines indicated that the Mayor should not be a member of the committee. However these are only guidelines, not legislated requirements and as such compliance with the guidelines, before they were revised, has been demonstrated to be quite low (Jones & Bowrey 2013. This study, based on a review of NSW Local Government Councils’ 2012/2013 reports, including Annual Reportsrelation to internal audit committees, to determine if the guidelines are effective in improving local government council governance.

    Localized scleroderma is characterized by a thickening of the skin from excessive collagen deposits. It is not a fatal disease, but quality of life can be adversely affected due to changes in skin appearance, joint contractures, and, rarely, serious deformities of the face and extremities. We present six cases of localized scleroderma in face from our surgical practice. We reviewed six localized scleroderma cases that were initially treated with medication and then received follow-up surgery between April 2003 and February 2015. Six patients had facial lesions. These cases presented with linear dermal sclerosis on the forehead, oval subcutaneous and dermal depression in the cheek. En coup de sabre (n=4), and oval-shaped lesion of the face (n=2) were successfully treated. Surgical methods included resection with or without Z-plasty (n=3), fat graft (n=1), dermofat graft (n=1), and adipofascial free flap (n=1). Deformities of the affected parts were surgically corrected without reoccurrence. We retrospectively reviewed six cases of localized scleroderma that were successfully treated with surgery. And we propose an algorithm for selecting the best surgical approach for individual localized scleroderma cases. Although our cases were limited in number and long-term follow-up will be necessary, we suggest that surgical management should be considered as an option for treating scleroderma patients.

  4. Local Equilibrium and Retardation Revisited.

    In modeling solute transport with mobile-immobile mass transfer (MIMT), it is common to use an advection-dispersion equation (ADE) with a retardation factor, or retarded ADE. This is commonly referred to as making the local equilibrium assumption (LEA). Assuming local equilibrium, Eulerian textbook treatments derive the retarded ADE, ostensibly exactly. However, other authors have presented rigorous mathematical derivations of the dispersive effect of MIMT, applicable even in the case of arbitrarily fast mass transfer. We resolve the apparent contradiction between these seemingly exact derivations by adopting a Lagrangian point of view. We show that local equilibrium constrains the expected time immobile, whereas the retarded ADE actually embeds a stronger, nonphysical, constraint: that all particles spend the same amount of every time increment immobile. Eulerian derivations of the retarded ADE thus silently commit the gambler's fallacy, leading them to ignore dispersion due to mass transfer that is correctly modeled by other approaches. We then present a particle tracking simulation illustrating how poor an approximation the retarded ADE may be, even when mobile and immobile plumes are continually near local equilibrium. We note that classic "LEA" (actually, retarded ADE validity) criteria test for insignificance of MIMT-driven dispersion relative to hydrodynamic dispersion, rather than for local equilibrium.

  5. Noncommuting observables and local realism

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Malley, James D.; Fine, Arthur

    2005-01-01

    A standard approach in the foundations of quantum mechanics studies local realism and hidden variables models exclusively in terms of violations of Bell-like inequalities. Thus quantum nonlocality is tied to the celebrated no-go theorems, and these comprise a long list that includes the Kochen-Specker and Bell theorems, as well as elegant refinements by Mermin, Peres, Hardy, GHZ, and many others. Typically entanglement or carefully prepared multipartite systems have been considered essential for violations of local realism and for understanding quantum nonlocality. Here we show, to the contrary, that sharp violations of local realism arise almost everywhere without entanglement. The pivotal fact driving these violations is just the noncommutativity of quantum observables. We demonstrate how violations of local realism occur for arbitrary noncommuting projectors, and for arbitrary quantum pure states. Finally, we point to elementary tests for local realism, using single particles and without reference to entanglement, thus avoiding experimental loopholes and efficiency issues that continue to bedevil the Bell inequality related tests

    Fu, Honghao; Miller, Carl A.

    2018-03-01

    When two players achieve a superclassical score at a nonlocal game, their outputs must contain intrinsic randomness. This fact has many useful implications for quantum cryptography. Recently it has been observed [C. Miller and Y. Shi, Quantum Inf. Computat. 17, 0595 (2017)] that such scores also imply the existence of local randomness—that is, randomness known to one player but not to the other. This has potential implications for cryptographic tasks between two cooperating but mistrustful players. In the current paper we bring this notion toward practical realization, by offering near-optimal bounds on local randomness for the CHSH game, and also proving the security of a cryptographic application of local randomness (single-bit certified deletion).

    Full Text Available This paper is an attempt to clarify and present the many definitions ofbenchmarking. It also attempts to explain the basic steps of benchmarking, toshow how this tool can be applied by local authorities as well as to discuss itspotential benefits and limitations. It is our strong belief that if cities useindicators and progressively introduce targets to improve management andrelated urban life quality, and to measure progress towards more sustainabledevelopment, we will also create a new type of competition among cities andfoster innovation. This is seen to be important because local authorities’actions play a vital role in responding to the challenges of enhancing thestate of the environment not only in policy-making, but also in the provision ofservices and in the planning process. Local communities therefore need tobe aware of their own sustainability performance levels and should be able toengage in exchange of best practices to respond effectively to the ecoeconomicalchallenges of the century.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Dewar, R.L.; Cuthbert, P.

    1999-01-01

    In solving the ballooning eigenvalue for a low-aspect-ratio stellarator equilibrium it is found that the quasiperiodic behaviour of the equilibrium quantities along a typical magnetic field line can lead to localization of the ballooning eigenfunction (Anderson localization) even in the limit of zero shear. This localization leads to strong field-line dependence of the ballooning eigenvalue, with different branches attaining their maximum growth rates on different field lines. A method is presented of estimating the field-line dependence of various eigenvalue branches by using toroidal and poloidal symmetry operations on the shear-free ballooning equation to generate an approximate set of eigenfunctions. These zero-shear predictions are compared with accurate numerical solutions for the H-1 Heliac and are shown to give a qualitatively correct picture, but finite shear corrections will be needed to give quantitative predictions

    In his groundbreaking paper Absence of diffusion in certain random lattices (1958), Philip W. Anderson originated, described and developed the physical principles underlying the phenomenon of the localization of quantum objects due to disorder. Anderson's 1977 Nobel Prize citation featured that paper, which was fundamental for many subsequent developments in condensed matter theory and technical applications. After more than a half century, the subject continues to be of fundamental importance. In particular, in the last 25 years, the phenomenon of localization has proved to be crucial for the

    Local fields arising from the electronic distortion in perfect ionic crystals are described in terms of multipolar excitations. Field factors for the alkali halides and chalcogenide ions are found to differ significantly from the Lorentz value of 4π/3, the correction size following an exponential dependence on the difference in ionic radii. Local fields are only slightly modified by these corrections however, and together with the Clausius-Mossotti relation may be regarded as accurate to within 2% if the Lorentz value is adopted.

  7. The localized quantum vacuum field

    A model for the localized quantum vacuum is proposed in which the zero-point energy (ZPE) of the quantum electromagnetic field originates in energy- and momentum-conserving transitions of material systems from their ground state to an unstable state with negative energy. These transitions are accompanied by emissions and re-absorptions of real photons, which generate a localized quantum vacuum in the neighborhood of material systems. The model could help resolve the cosmological paradox associated with the ZPE of electromagnetic fields, while reclaiming quantum effects associated with quantum vacuum such as the Casimir effect and the Lamb shift. It also offers a new insight into the Zitterbewegung of material particles

    Full Text Available The objective of this study was evaluate the influence of feeding bullfrog tadpoles on commercial feed containing 28% crude protein (CP, on their digestive enzyme performance and activities. The experiment lasted 60 days, at the density of one tadpole/L in boxes containing 30 L water. A hundred and twenty tadpoles at the 25 Gosner stage averaging weight and length was 0.046 g and 6.22 mm, respectively, were used. Survival rate, length, final weight, weight gain, feed consumption, apparent food conversion, specific growth rate and activities of chime, amylase, lipase and trypisin were the parameters evaluated, biweekly, in five biometries. Quadratic effect was observed for the length and the weight. There was larger growth of the tadpoles from the 15th to the 45th day (19.82 mm. On the 15th day, the tadpoles presented the largest specific growth rate (16.93%/day, and the largest weight gain (5.460 g, feed intake (14.099 g and the best apparent food conversion (2.46 was from the 45th to the 60th day. The specific activity of amylase was 205 times greater at 60 days when compared to the beginning of the experiment. The results demonstrated that, for the three enzymes studied, the action capacity over the tadpole chime increased significantly after the 30th experimental day. Moreover, they suggested a greater capacity of tadpoles to digest carbohydrates in detriment to proteins, and this fact was accentuated in the initial phase of the exogenous feeding of this amphibian. The commercial feed with 28% CP provide good performance in the bullfrog tadpoles, indicating the juvenile formation within commercial bullfrog farming standards.Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar a influência da alimentação de girinos de rã-touro com ração comercial contendo 28% de proteína bruta (PB no desempenho e nas atividades de enzimas digestivas desses animais.

  18. Local models of astrophysical discs

    Latter, Henrik N.; Papaloizou, John

    2017-12-01

    Local models of gaseous accretion discs have been successfully employed for decades to describe an assortment of small-scale phenomena, from instabilities and turbulence, to dust dynamics and planet formation. For the most part, they have been derived in a physically motivated but essentially ad hoc fashion, with some of the mathematical assumptions never made explicit nor checked for consistency. This approach is susceptible to error, and it is easy to derive local models that support spurious instabilities or fail to conserve key quantities. In this paper we present rigorous derivations, based on an asympototic ordering, and formulate a hierarchy of local models (incompressible, Boussinesq and compressible), making clear which is best suited for a particular flow or phenomenon, while spelling out explicitly the assumptions and approximations of each. We also discuss the merits of the anelastic approximation, emphasizing that anelastic systems struggle to conserve energy unless strong restrictions are imposed on the flow. The problems encountered by the anelastic approximation are exacerbated by the disc's differential rotation, but also attend non-rotating systems such as stellar interiors. We conclude with a defence of local models and their continued utility in astrophysical research.

    Mesotherapy, which is the injection of substances locally into mesodermally derived subcutaneous tissue, developed from empirical observations of a French physician in the 1950s. Although popular in Europe for many medical purposes, it is used for local cosmetic fat reduction in the United States. This paper reviews manuscripts indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE under 'mesotherapy', which pertains to local fat reduction. The history of lipolytic mesotherapy, the physiology of body fat distribution, the mechanism of action of different lipolytic stimulators and their increased efficacy in combination are reviewed. Mesotherapy falls into two categories. Lipolytic mesotherapy using lipolytic stimulators requires more frequent treatments as the fat cells are not destroyed and can refill over time. Ablative mesotherapy destroys fat cells with a detergent, causes inflammation and scarring from the fat necrosis, but requires fewer treatments. The historic and empiric mixing of sodium channel blocking local anaesthetics in mesotherapy solutions inhibits the intended lipolysis. Major mesotherapy safety concerns include injection site infections from poor sterile technique. Cosmetic mesotherapy directs the area from which fat is lost to improve self-image. Studies were of relatively small number, many with limited sample sizes. Future research should be directed towards achieving a Food and Drug Administration indication rather than continuing expansion of off-label use. © 2013 The Authors. obesity reviews © 2013 International Association for the Study of Obesity.

    The Brainomics/Localizer database exposes part of the data collected by the in-house Localizer project, which planned to acquire four types of data from volunteer research subjects: anatomical MRI scans, functional MRI data, behavioral and demographic data, and DNA sampling. Over the years, this local project has been collecting such data from hundreds of subjects. We had selected 94 of these subjects for their complete datasets, including all four types of data, as the basis for a prior publication; the Brainomics/Localizer database publishes the data associated with these 94 subjects. Since regulatory rules prevent us from making genetic data available for download, the database serves only anatomical MRI scans, functional MRI data, behavioral and demographic data. To publish this set of heterogeneous data, we use dedicated software based on the open-source CubicWeb semantic web framework. Through genericity in the data model and flexibility in the display of data (web pages, CSV, JSON, XML), CubicWeb helps us expose these complex datasets in original and efficient ways.

  6. Quantum Strategies and Local Operations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gutoski, Gus

    2010-02-01

    This thesis is divided into two parts. In Part I we introduce a new formalism for quantum strategies, which specify the actions of one party in any multi-party interaction involving the exchange of multiple quantum messages among the parties. This formalism associates with each strategy a single positive semidefinite operator acting only upon the tensor product of the input and output message spaces for the strategy. We establish three fundamental properties of this new representation for quantum strategies and we list several applications, including a quantum version of von Neumann's celebrated 1928 Min-Max Theorem for zero-sum games and an efficient algorithm for computing the value of such a game. In Part II we establish several properties of a class of quantum operations that can be implemented locally with shared quantum entanglement or classical randomness. In particular, we establish the existence of a ball of local operations with shared randomness lying within the space spanned by the no-signaling operations and centred at the completely noisy channel. The existence of this ball is employed to prove that the weak membership problem for local operations with shared entanglement is strongly NP-hard. We also provide characterizations of local operations in terms of linear functionals that are positive and "completely" positive on a certain cone of Hermitian operators, under a natural notion of complete positivity appropriate to that cone. We end the thesis with a discussion of the properties of no-signaling quantum operations.

    Localized scleroderma or morphea is a sclerosing connective tissue disease of the skin, which may affect underlying tissues such as subcutis, muscle and bone. Many patients show extracutaneous symptoms and antinuclear antibodies, however, secondary transformation into systemic sclerosis does not occur. Localized scleroderma usually begins in childhood with a wide variation in its clinical spectrum. The linear variant is the most common subtype in children, associated with a progressive course and increased risk of complications. The disease may progress over years and result in severe functional and cosmetic disability. The etiology of localized scleroderma remains unknown. A genetic background is suspected, while triggers such as trauma, vaccinations and infections may lead to secondary immunologic phenomena. Localized scleroderma often remains unrecognized for a long time, resulting in substantial delay in treatment. The combination of systemic corticosteroids and methotrexate has been established as first-line therapy for progressive (usually linear) disease, whereas phototherapy (UVA-1 or UVB-narrow band) is suitable for adolescents with superficial circumscribed subtypes.

    In LMFBR, whole core meltdown accident falls in residual risk category. Propagation of a local fault to whole core, however, needs attention. Subassembly accidents are divided into two categories, Design Basis and Beyond Design Basis accidents. Design Basis is further classified into four categories. All events affecting fuel pin performance are identified and categorised, Total Instantaneous Blockage has been identified as the envelope of all local faults and categorised as BDB event and the safety objective is to demonstrate that no damage will propagate beyond six neighbouring SA. A core catcher has been provided for retention of core debris and cooling it by natural convection. Local blockages may be active and passive. Active blockages can be detected by DND signal. For passive blockages, detection is difficult. Hence, development of a finite volume computer code based on the porous body formulation has been undertaken to define the maximum allowable defect. Experimental programmes have been undertaken to understand blockage mechanism, define maximum credible defect and the thermalhydraulic behaviour of SA with local blockages. Also an experimental programme with a totally blocked SA with a bundle of heated pins has been undertaken to understand the behaviour of the SA. (author)
