    2014-01-01

    Los rituales indígenas de ayer y hoy otorgan un lugar importante a la numeración. El artículo ofrece una comparación entre el sistema nahua de medidas recopilado en tiempos de la Conquista española y el sistema tlapaneco observado hoy en día. Muestra que ambos se basan en las dimensiones del cuerpo humano; el sistema interno de conversión de las medidas es de origen prehispánico. También existe una semejanza en los usos rituales de dichas medidas. Las ceremonias exigía el conteo de los objeto...

    Full Text Available Four hundred and eighty cattle were used to verify alterations and correlations among corporal measures in Nelore zebu herd with cows and heifers. Body weight and length, corporal condition, heart girth, withers height and hip measures were evaluated. Eight collections were accomplished along the months of October of 2002 and October of 2003. In heifers there was increase of the averages of corporal measures with significant difference (p <0,05 among collections only the heart girth was different (p <0,05 in cows. The relationship between the body weight and body condition with the time were quadratic parallel curves (p <0,001. There were correlations among lineal measures body with hip measures (p<0,001 except for heart girth with hip length. The correlations of body weight and body condition among body measures were significant (p<0,001 except body condition with hip length in cows. It could be concluded that there was a growing variation of the body measures in heifers in the experimental period. The body weight, the body condition and heart girth were related with different periods of the year that the evaluation was accomplished. In cows the variations along the year were of 14,79%, 31,53% and 6,74%, respectively. The isquiun – iliun external measures, as height and width were correlated with size measures and weight. The body weight and body condition in heifers behave in way similar to cows. Further researches in relationship among body measures, body weight and body condition with productive and reproductive aspect are necessary. Con el objetivo de verificar alteraciones y correlaciones entre medidas corporales en un rebaño bovino de vaquillonas y vacas de la raza Nelore.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo tiene como propósito abordar la motricidad a partir de prácticas corporales como el danzar, jugar y caminar, así como el gesto y las sensaciones kinestésicas en el horizonte de la Educación Corporal. Interesa mostrar la Motricidad como esa experiencia que nosotros mismos hacemos del cuerpo (leiblich para establecer una relación con la Educación. La motricidad, en el horizonte de la Educación Corporal, realza las prácticas corporales no con el fin de prescribir prácticas institucionalizadas o normalizadas sino con la pretensión de favorecer experiencias para disponer estados de afección, como ese pathos que sucede ocurriendo, afectando, tocándonos y actuando sobre nosotros, lo cual supone una mirada de la Educación bajo la figura del acontecimiento, que no pretende planificar lo sensible ni normativizar la experiencia.

    Full Text Available Los embera chamí de Cristianía integran una comunidad ubicada en la jurisdicción de Jardín, suroriente antioqueño. Este estudio integra las concepciones que la comunidad tiene de su cuerpo y la percepción de la imagen corporal. Se realizó estudios antropológicos que evidencian la relación entre la percepción del cuerpo sentido y vivido, la prevención y el seguimiento de las recomendaciones preventivas. El objetivo de esta investigación fue estudiar en hombres y mujeres cómo autoperciben las dimensiones corporales. Se diseñó un estudio que comprendiera la observación etnográfica y entrevistas, combinando la información cualitativa con la información cuantitativa y la medición por antropometría del tamaño y forma corporal. De acuerdo a los resultados, la percepción del Índice de Masa Corporal (IMC es muy similar al de otras sociedades no indígenas, ya que los hombres tienden a subestimar su IMC y las mujeres a sobrestimarlo. Es prevalente el aumento de peso con relación a la edad en mujeres y el patrón dietario.

    Full Text Available Objetivos: Correlacionar el índice de masa corporal (IMC con las circunferencias corporales de niños brasileros de 4 a 10 años. Diseño: Estudio de tipo descriptivo correlacional. Institución: Universidad Estatal de Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brasil. Participantes: Niños de 4 a 10 años de edad. Intervenciones: Se seleccionó 517 niños de ambos sexos de manera probabilística (estratificada, siendo 256 niños y 261 niñas. Se evaluó las medidas antropométricas de peso corporal (kg, estatura (cm, IMC [IMC=peso (kg∕estatura (m2] y las circunferencias corporales del brazo relajado, muslo y pantorrilla media (cm. Para el análisis de los datos se utilizó la estadística descriptiva de media aritmética (X, desviación estándar (DE y el coeficiente de correlación producto-momento de Pearson (r, así como para inferir el análisis de regresión múltiple stepwise paso a paso. Principales medidas de resultados: Correlación del índice de masa corporal con las circunferencias corporales. Resultados: El IMC muestra elevados coeficientes de correlación (r con las tres circunferencias corporales. Sin embargo, cuando se aplicó la regresión estadística simple, los mejores valores fueron observados a partir de la circunferencia del brazo relajado (R2=0,74 para niñas y la pantorrilla media para niños (R2=0,70. A su vez, cuando se utilizó la regresión múltiple (brazo y pantorrilla el nivel de explicación para las niñas aumentó a (R2=0,80 y para los niños a (R2=0,75, respectivamente. Conclusiones: Las circunferencias corporales del brazo y la pantorrilla en forma individual y conjunta podrían ser utilizadas como variables independientes del IMC, puesto que este índice por sí solo no podría distinguir el sobrepeso y exceso de grasa en niños de ambos géneros de 4 a 10 años, sobre todo cuando se encuentran en fase de crecimiento y desarrollo somático.

Se seleccionaron vacas Brahman registradas, agrupadas en fértiles (15 y subfértiles (15 según historial reproductivo. Se tomaron muestras de suero y líquido folicular (diámetro >8 mm para determinar colesterol, lipoproteínas, triacilgliceroles y glucosa. Las vacas subfértiles mostraron un fenotipo masculino, con medidas corporales mayores, y concentraciones de colesterol y HDL séricos y foliculares más bajas que las vacas fértiles. El colesterol y el HDL se correlacionaron positivamente entre los compartimientos en ambos grupos. La subfertilidad es más probable en vacas pesadas con hombros amplios y mayor perímetro torácico. El tamaño corporal en vacas Brahman subfértiles se relacionó con su apariencia, con cambios en los metabolitos séricos y foliculares y con las concentraciones de colesterol y HDL.The objective of this study was to evaluate differences in body size among Brahman cows, grouped according to their fertility, to establish differences in concentrations of cholesterol, lipoproteins, and glucose, in serum and follicular fluid, and to develop a model to predict subfertility in Brahman cows using body measurements as predictors. Registered Brahman cows were selected and grouped in fertile (15 and subfertile (15 animals, according to their calving interval. Samples of blood serum and liquid from follicles (diameter >8 mm were collected in order to determine cholesterol, lipoproteins, triacylglycerols, and glucose. Subfertile cows had a masculine phenotype, their body measurements were larger than those in fertile cows, and they had lower cholesterol and HDL concentrations in

Existen varias fórmulas para estimar el peso de un caballo a partir de medidas corporales como el perímetro torácico, perímetro umbilical, largo y alzada del caballo, pero no existe ningún estudio sobre la aplicabilidad de estas fórmulas a la raza Criolla. En el presente estudio se registraron 5 medidas morfométricas (perímetro torácico, perímetro umbilical, largo al encuentro, largo al olécranon y alzada y el peso de 42 caballos de raza Criolla de ambos sexos, de por lo menos 2 años de edad. El peso de cada animal fue estimado a partir de las medidas morfométricas utilizando 9 ecuaciones disponibles en bibliografía. Ninguna de dichas ecuaciones ajustó satisfactoriamente al peso real (p<0,01. La fórmula de Caroll y Huntington y su modificada, son las que más se aproximan al peso real para esta raza.

Sin embargo, existe un gran desconocimiento sobre las pautas que resultan más convenientes para conseguir este objetivo. Objetivos: Analizar la percepción del peso y los tipos de comportamiento realizados para controlar el peso corporal en adultos españoles con el fin de poder poner en marcha las campañas más adecuadas para proporcionar a la población una correcta información nutricional. Métodos: Se estudió a 2.168 sujetos (18-50 años de 5 provincias españolas. Se recogieron datos antropométricos e información sobre la preocupación por el peso corporal. Resultados: un 65,6% de la población desea perder peso y un 44,9% ha seguido dietas con este fin en algún momento, siendo mayor en el caso de las mujeres. Cuando se intenta controlar el peso un 63,9% de la población aumenta su actividad física, un 23,9% toma productos dietéticos o plantas medicinales y un 48,0% compensa los excesos. Además se evita el consumo de alimentos como los dulces (24,5%, la grasa (15,4%, los bollos (11,4% o el pan (11,4% y, sobre todo en población femenina, se aumenta el consumo de frutas y verduras.

Our aim was to compare single frequency-bioelectrical impedance (SF-BIA analysis; foot-to-foot impedance meters (FFI or upper body fat analysers (UBFA and DXA (Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in severely obese patients. Patients and methods: Cross-sectional study including 40 severely obese patients. Bioelectrical impedance was performed for SF-BIA (Holtain (H and OMRON BF 500 (O500, FFI (Tanita TBF-300 (T and UBFA (Omron BF 300 (O300. DXA scans were performed using a Lunar iDXA. The data were analysed using Pearson's correlation and Bland Altman plots were also drawn to evaluate any agreements. Results: The percentage and total body fat values were 49.2% and 55.2 kg measured with DXA, 44.3%/53.4 kg with O300, 50.6%/58.3 kg with O500, 45.4%/55.4 kg with H and 49.1%/60.3 kg with T. The Holtain BIA showed the worst correlation with DXA for both %BF and FFM. Although the measurements of % body fat, fat mass and fat-free mass were significantly correlated with DXA, each method showed wide limits of agreement, although T was most closely correlated with DXA. Conclusion: Compared to DXA, FFI and UBFA could be useful for assessing body composition in severely obese people, although they appeared to underestimate %BF and FM and their limits of agreement were too wide.Introducción: La medida de la composición corporal parece no tener suficiente fiabilidad en los pacientes obesos.

    Full Text Available Presentar un estudio de las medidas difusas y de las integrales difusas, y mostrar algunos fenómenos donde estas son utilizadas. Se expone cómo es introducido el concepto de medida difusa y cómo a partir de él se introduce la noción de integral difusa. Se establecen propiedades de las medidas difusas y se clasifican de acuerdo a la propiedad aditiva y las λ-medidas, se observa cómo las medidas de probabilidad, plausibilidad, credibilidad, posibilidad y necesidad son ejemplos clásicos en la clasificación realizada. Se hace un análisis de las dos principales integrales difusas: integral de Sugeno e integral de Choquet, dado que la aplicación de estas integrales se hace sobre conjuntos finitos, se realiza utilizando el concepto de función equiordenada una comparación de ellas para el caso finito. Se presentan dos ejemplos donde se utilizan las medidas difusas e integrales difusas en los procesos de clasificación de individuos y evaluación de calidad. También se describen algunos fenómenos donde ellas son aplicadas. Las medidas clásicas son usadas en ciertos casos especiales de incertidumbre basados en la aleatoriedad. La utilización en determinados contextos de medidas difusas (no aditivas y de las integrales difusas ofrece un enfoque más flexible y realista para modelar la incertidumbre.

Presenta una revisión del estado actual de la investigación sobre este constructo, a la vez que hace una reflexión sobre la inadecuación de los actuales instrumentos de medida si la autoestima integra el valor de la persona, y no sólo las cualidades-competencias y carencias del individuo. Por último se ofrece un nuevo instrumento de medida de la autoestima de acuerdo con el nuevo concepto de dicho constructo.ABSTRACT: This paper is intented to broaden the traditional notion of self-esteem by suggesting the «value of the person» as its essential characteristic. After revising the literature on this construct, it is concluded that the instruments currently used to asses self-esteem are inadecuated in that they only take into account the qualities-competences and shortcomings of the individual, but not the «value of the person». Finally, a new instrument to asses self-esteem more in accordance with this new conception is presented.

    ecuaciones predictivas para tal fin, respecto a cada taxón en particular, a cada familia y al Orden en general. Se incluyen 535 ejemplares fósiles correspondientes a 50 géneros del orden. La masa corporal de cada género se estima sobre la base de 24 ecuaciones alométricas construidas en mamíferos vivientes, basadas en 19 medidas del esqueleto apendicular y tres medidas dentarias tomadas con calibre digital. El intervalo de masa corporal dado por los valores estimados para el orden se encuentra entre 0,57 kg en Archaeophylus (Interatheriidae y 3797 Kg en Mixotoxodon (Toxodontidae, lo que refleja la gran diversidad de tamaños corporales que caracteriza al grupo. Los menores tamaños se dan en las familias Notostylopidae, Oldfieldthomasiidae, Archaeopithecidae, Interatheriidae, Archaeohyracidae y Hegetotheriidae; tamaños intermedios en los Notohippidae, Isotemnidae y Mesotheriidae y tamaños grandes en Homalodotheriidae. En los Leontiniidae y Toxodontidae los tamaños van de intermedios a grandes, siendo esta última la de mayor variación de masa y con los taxones de mayor tamaño. En comparación con los ungulados holárticos, los notoungulados presentan un intervalo más amplio y variable de masa corporal hacia las formas de menor tamaño y con mayor variedad funcional en las extremidades.

Este punto se ilustra dos maneras: primero, resaltamos el hecho de que el concepto de persistencia depende del modelo, es una función del modelo adoptado a partir de la teoría económica. Segundo, se analice tema relacionado con la definición de un conjunto de parámetros de interés. En particular, consideramos un caso bivariado simple. Dada la exogeneidad débil de los regresores los parámetros del único vector de cointegración pueden ser estimados equivalente mente dentro de un sistema completo de ecuaciones o con un modelo uniecuacional. Por el contrario, si la persistencia está siendo medida, la exogeneidad débil de los regresores no se mantiene, ya que los parámetros de interés no puede ser escritos sólo como una función de aquellos del modelo condicional y el concepto de exogeneidad (ya no débil del modelo se convierte en más relevante. Una vez más, la teoría económica puede ser vista como esencial en el ejercicio de especificación del modelo.

    Full Text Available Las escuelas salesianas se instalaron en la Argentina a fin del siglo XIX y no cesaron de crecer hasta nuestros días. Entre sus propuestas educativas la cuestión corporal se constituyó en un problema central. El gobierno del cuerpo y, especialmente, la construcción de cierto tipo de masculinidad fue uno de los ejes centrales de su propuesta. Para construir cuerpos masculinos y viriles se "inventaron", en 1915, los Exploradores de Don Bosco. Dicha experiencia (gimnasia, marchas, paseos, excursiones, etc. reunió a niños y jóvenes pobres con el fin de modelar sus cuerpos y sus almas construyendo un universo moral y kinético específico. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, el siguiente artículo indaga cómo y porqué el movimiento de los Exploradores de Don Bosco generizó los cuerpos de los niños convirtiéndolos en "verdaderos" hombres y contra quienes luchó en su "cruzada masculina". Las fuentes a analizar son los documentos, circulares, textos y libros utilizados para formar a los Exploradores de Don Bosco en la Argentina.The salesians schools settled in Argentina in the end of the XIX century and they have been growing until the present time.

    Predominantly since the 1992 Rio Summit, corporations have been increasingly pursuing partnerships with public institutions including governments, international organisations and NGOs that aim to contribute to sustainable development activities. Both the business community and public organisations...... are recognizing the potential benefits of public-private partnerships for furthering the Millennium Development Goals while having a positive impact on business. Partnerships have become more common as corporations react to mounting pressure from corporate stakeholders, civil society and government...... on the responsible nature of their business practices. The accountability of corporations has moved beyond the traditional obligations of addressing shareholder demands and today, corporations must be accountable to society and all stakeholders affected by global development.

    This paper aims to explore the potential of Danish corporate foundations as boundary organizations facilitating relationships between their founding companies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Hitherto, research has been silent about the role of corporate foundations in relation to cross......-sector partnerships. The results of this paper are based on interviews, participant observations, and organizational documents from a 19-month empirical study of a Danish corporate foundation. Findings suggest that corporate foundations have potential to act as boundary organizations and facilitate collaborative...... action between business and NGOs through convening, translation, collaboration, and mediation.

  18. Pueblo de humanos: metáforas corporales y diferenciación social indígena en Bolivia

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available La diferenciación social de los indígenas, en la región andina de Bolivia, tiene como telón de fondo la noción de «desanclaje». Según esta, el tránsito de la sociedad agraria hacia la sociedad industrial produce una forma de «extrañamiento» del ser humano respecto de sus relaciones locales y tradicionales de presencia, para estructurarlas luego en intervalos espaciales y temporales de la modernidad y el capitalismo, en su forma estatal-nacional. En este proceso, la educación desempeña un papel fundamental que el artículo hace visible a partir de una de las consecuencias centrales de la integración diferenciada y desigual de los indígenas al orden estatal, ello a través de la división social del trabajo que deviene en sujetos intelectuales y manuales. Todos estos aspectos son tratados desde metáforas corporales que aluden a la compleja administración de signos y significantes bajo los formatos comprensivos de la colonización y el capitalismo en los Andes de Bolivia.

    Full Text Available Durante el ciclo de la vida, la figura corporal de la mujer se modifica paulatinamente, pero al llegar la edad mediana, a consecuencia de la pérdida folicular de la función ovárica entre otros factores, se acentúan los cambios fisiológicos que pueden aumentar el riesgo para la salud y el bienestar. La androgenia, en asociación con la obesidad, aumenta el riesgo de padecer diabetes, hipertensión, dislipidemia, arterosclerosis, enfermedades cardiovasculares, colelitiasis, artrosis, artritis, carcinomas femeninos y otras patologías de la edad mediana. El ejercicio físico ha adquirido cada vez mayor importancia dentro de la terapéutica en el climaterio. Se han demostrado los efectos positivos del ejercicio sobre las enfermedades cardiovasculares y el mantenimiento del peso. Por todo ello, el estudio pretende conocer la influencia de un programa de actividad física de cinco meses de duración sobre factores de riesgo cardiovasculares como la hipertensión arterial y la composición corporal en mujeres premenopáusicas. Participaron 20 mujeres premenopáusicas, separadas en dos grupos de mujeres: menores de 35 años (n=10, y mayores de 35 años (n=10. Las valoraciones previas y al finalizar el programa fueron: valoración de la tensión arterial y de la composición corporal. Los resultados mostraron una reducción significativa en mayor medida en la tensión arterial diastólica y en la masa grasa en el grupo de mujeres mayores de 35 años premenopáusicas. Por ello, practicar un programa de ejercicio físico basado en el aeróbic, clases de step y tonificación con mancuernas, mejora factores de riesgo cardiovasculares como la hipertensión arterial y la composición corporal en mujeres adultas mayores de 35 años premenopáusicas.

Fueron evaluados consistencia interna por medio del coeficiente alfa de Cronbach, análisis factorial por el método Varimax y validez discriminante por las diferencias entre promedios de estado nutricional, utilizándose la prueba de Kruskal-Wallis. En la validación concurrente, se calculó el coeficiente de correlación de Spearman entre la escala y el índice de masa corporal, la razón circunferencia cuadril y la circunferencia de la cintura. Para reproducibilidad, fueron utilizados la prueba de Wilcoxon, el coeficiente de correlación intra-clase. RESULTADOS: La escala traducida no presentó discordancias significativas con la original. La escala presentó consistencia interna satisfactoria para todos los subgrupos estudiados (fases inicial y final de adolescencia, ambos sexos y fue capaz de discriminar los adolescentes según el estado nutricional. En el análisis concurrente, las tres medidas corporales fueron correlacionadas, excepto adolescentes del sexo masculino en fase inicial, y su reproducibilidad fue confirmada. CONCLUSIONES: La Escala de Evaluación de la Insatisfacción Corporal para Adolescentes esta traducida para el portugués y presentó resultados satisfactorios, siendo recomendada para evaluación del aspecto de la actitud de la imagen corporal de adolescentes.OBJECTIVE:To validate a body dissatisfaction scale for adolescents.

Variáveis investigadas: gênero, idade, peso, estatura, altura do joelho, estatura estimada através das equações de Chumlea, índice de massa corporal para as medidas de estatura aferida e estimada e classificado segundo Lipschitz, e dados sociodemográficos. Na análise descritiva dos dados foram usadas medidas de tendência central, dispersão e proporção; a homogeneidade entre as medidas foi verificada através do coeficiente de correlação intraclasse e do gráfico de Bland e Altman e a concordância entre a avaliação nutricional baseada no índice de massa corporal calculado a partir da estatura aferida e a avaliação nutricional baseada no índice de massa corporal calculado a partir da estatura estimada foi avaliada através do coeficiente Kappa ponderado com pesos quadráticos.Resultados:Foram avaliados 186 idosos com média de idade de 74,3±7,1 anos. A média do índice de massa corporal aferido e estimado foi 28,96±5,86 kg/m2e 27,95±5,47 kg/m2, respectivamente, e a prevalência de sobrepeso foi de 59,7% para o índice de massa corporal aferido e 53,2% para o estimado. Foi observada uma boa concordância (Kappa=0,79; p<0,001 entre as duas avaliações.Conclusão:Os resultados mostraram ser possível utilizar a altura do joelho na estimativa da estatura para cálculo do índice de massa corporal em idosos atendidos em ambulatório, alternativa útil para aqueles que apresentam limitações na aferição das medidas, sendo esta uma medida alternativa importante na avaliação nutricional de idosos.

Articulación que tiene como resultado la conformación de un particular sentido de comunidad constituido en y a través de la experiencia corporal. Es el cuerpo, luchando contra rivales y compañeros, la herramienta que asegura la identificación con el grupo de pares; es la acción, la práctica, el elemento que delimita el ingreso al grupo. De esta forma, analizamos la existencia de identificaciones y la construcción de colectivos que se centran en las prácticas y en las acciones. Los discursos identitarios, que crean y recrean "otros" y "nosotros", tienen diferentes dimensiones: narrativas, gestuales, corporales, escritas, etc. A través de las formas expresivas de los miembros de una "hinchada" de fútbol, proponemos analizar cómo algunos grupos sociales priorizan en lo corporal y sus experiencias la conformación de modelos identitarios.In this paper, the uses and representations of bodies in a football hinchada (fan base is analyzed on the basis of the articulation that those supporters make between body ideals, male models, and practices of bodily confrontation. This articulation results in the construction of a particular sense of community based on and through bodily experience. The body itself, fighting against rivals and friends, is the tool that allows identification with a group of peers; the action, the practice, is the element that defines the group's membership. The existence of identifications and the construction of collectives that are centered on practices and actions are thus analyzed.

El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar la relación entre el estatus PROP, el índice de masa corporal (IMC, la circunferencia de cintura (CC, la grasa corporal total (GC y el consumo de alimentos. El estatus PROP fue determinado utilizando dos escalas: una categórica de nueve puntos y una general de magnitud etiquetada. Los hábitos dietarios de los participantes fueron registrados en línea durante 35 días. La clasificación por fenotipo PROP varió según la escala. No se observaron diferencias significativas entre degustadores y no degustadores PROP, con ambas escalas, en índice de masa corporal, circunferencia de cintura, grasa corporal total, ingesta energética y de macronutrientes. El fenotipo PROP no fue factor indicativo del peso corporal, de adiposidad ni de consumo dietario en jóvenes adultos.

    Full Text Available Breve repaso al desarrollo de la concepción métrica en la tipografía en plomo, alternativa y complemento de la visión habitual en lo que conocemos como “tipometría”. Se parte de una noción amplia de medida: el factor cuantitativo se dilata con la articulación de relaciones proporcionales e integra la dimensión cualitativa de los sistemas métricos tradicionales. La tipografía se considera bajo presupuestos similares: como sistema articulado de piezas materiales cuyas magnitudes contienen usos y valores específicos, más allá de su simple expresión numérica. Con tales premisas, se revisan fuentes documentales significativas del “período de la imprenta manual”. Su examen, vinculado a los usos y costumbres de oficio, desvela la distinta aproximación métrica, que puede resumirse en tres fases evolutivas: hermética, intensiva, expansiva –como recogen las referencias de los cuerpos tipográficos: adjetivas, sustantivas, numéricas. Se proporciona así un marco para apreciar el cambio de sentido en las medidas tipográficas hasta nuestros días.

    Full Text Available The work is aimed to examine the issues “corporate governance” involves, with the goal set to clarify the meanings of such notion, and to provide an overall image of the positive effects arising implementing the corporate governance principles. The first section includes a series of definitions for the purpose of explaining and outlining the concept of “corporate governance”, subsequently giving a definition that appears adequate to us, from the legal standpoint pre eminently. The second section has for purpose to state the corporate governance Principles, and briefly examine the same. Its purpose also includes concretely illustrating the efficient operation methods for a “corporation”, as well as the main dilemmas, and the existing solutions for the same within the internal structure of a joint stock company to adopt, and subject itself to, such principles. Finally, the last section of the work underlines the corporate governance importance, and states the goals to be attained for purposes of securing effective, balanced, and not in the last place profitable management.

    Full Text Available We examine the relation between corporate governance and bankruptcy risk as an underlying force affecting a bond’s yield. The level of corporate governance is captured by the G-index, along with the explicit groups of governance provisions. We estimate bankruptcy risk by Z-score, by cash-flow-score, by O-score, through Merton structural model default probabilities, and by S&P credit ratings. After addressing endogeneity and while controlling for firm-specific factors, based on the four objective methodologies we find that corporate governance is inversely related to bankruptcy risk. Yet, rating agencies take a mixed approach towards this association likely because of the conflicting impact of different governance provisions.

En el ballet las masas corporales más importantes de monitorear son la masa grasa y muscular, debido a sus cambios constantes producto del riguroso entrenamiento físico de esta especialidad. El objetivo de esta investigación es describir las modificaciones de la composición corporal de los bailarines de la Escuela Nacional de Ballet de Cuba en dos momentos del proceso de crecimiento, maduración y desarrollo. Se estudiaron longitudinalmente 54 bailarinas y 40 bailarines, con edades entre 15 y 20 años, de la especialidad bailarín profesor. Se aplicó un protocolo antropométrico de 13 mediciones para determinar la composición corporal, masa grasa y la masa muscular, a través del método multicompartimental de Ross y Kerr. Las bailarinas presentaron siempre mayor adiposidad que los bailarines, en quienes la reducción de este componente estuvo en función de su aumento ponderal. De un año a otro la masa muscular de la mayoría de los bailarines aumentó significativamente, mientras las bailarinas presentaron una estabilidad en este componente para todos los grupos de edades. Un estudio sistemático de la composición corporal debe establecer las normas óptimas de los valores de masa grasa y masa muscular y sus porcentajes respectivos en una población de bailarines según el nivel técnico, la edad y el sexo.

A metodologia do estudo consiste em analisar as narrativas sobre o trabalho da equipe de defensoria interdisciplinar discutindo as experiências ali vivenciadas com um olhar crítico sobre as práticas desenvolvidas no atendimento de adolescentes que cumprem medida socioeducativa por terem cometido ato infracional. A análise conceitual é orientada pelo diálogo com o filósofo Michel Foucault, especial em seu texto " La vie des hommes infâmes”, mapeando as relações de poder e saber que regulam as práticas institucionais e visam ao controle social dos indivíduos. A análise possibilita uma reflexão sobre as ligações que são estabelecidas entre os saberes do direito, da psicologia e da pedagogia, produzindo práticas que tendem a regular e prescrever a vida de adolescentes no contexto de atendimento socioeducativo, numa perspectiva de judicialização da vida contemporânea.

Os estudantes relataram aos pesquisadores dados referentes ao peso e estatura e, após o registro das informações, os jovens foram pesados e medidos. Foram coletadas informações sobre a percepção corporal para verifi car como o adolescente percebe seu peso em relação a sua estatura e as respostas foram agrupadas em três categorias. O teste t-student pareado foi utilizado para identifi car possíveis diferenças nas medidas referidas e aferidas de peso, estatura e do Índice de Massa Corporal - IMC. Para avaliar a concordância entre as medidas aferidas e referidas, calculou-se o coefi ciente de correlação intraclasse de Pearson (CCI, de acordo com a faixa etária e o gênero de cada indivíduo. O teste t-student foi adotado para verifi car possíveis diferenças entre os resultados obtidos, de acordo com o gênero dos alunos. Adotouse o nível de signifi cância de 5%. Os resultados obtidos mostraram que as meninas mais jovens apresentaram melhor percepção corporal quando comparadas às alunas com maior idade. Não foram identifi cadas diferenças signifi cativas entre as medidas referidas e aferidas do grupo estudado, em relação ao gênero e à faixa etária. Porém, nota-se que osadolescentes tendem a subestimar suas medidas corporais, sendo a estatura, a que apresentou menor concordância entreos valores informados e aferidos.

    Full Text Available La abdominoplastia es el procedimiento de elección para corregir la flacidez abdominal, la lipodistrofia supra e infraumbilical y la diástasis de los rectos abdominales. Los nuevos métodos añaden liposucción para definir el contorno corporal. Presentamos una estandarización de medidas para lograr una cicatriz abdominal baja y pexia pubiana en casos de lipodistrofias tipo III y IV de Matarasso. Realizamos un estudio observacional, descriptivo y retrospectivo, evaluando las historias clínicas y las fotografías sobre 420 mujeres, con edades entre 18 y 63 años, intervenidas entre 2004 y 2011. Basamos la técnica quirúrgica en los siguientes principios: referencias anatómicas; medidas estandarizadas con la paciente de pie sobre zapatos de tacón alto para el trazado de una incisión suprapúbica baja, siguiendo diseño de los autores; pexia de pubis y región inguinal; cicatriz suprapúbica baja cubierta por un biquini estándar. El 70,95 % de los casos (298 pacientes correspondieron a abdomen grado IV de lipodistrofia, el 28,57 % (120 pacientes al grado III y el 0,47 % (2 pacientes al grado II según Matarasso. Las complicaciones más frecuentes fueron: seroma, (4,04 % , alteraciones cicatríciales (7,37 % , necrosis parcial y epidermolisis (2,38 % y estenosis umbilical (1,19 % . Como conclusión creemos que la estandarización de medidas para el diseño de la cicatriz en la abdominoplastia permite obtener resultados estéticos predecibles y funcionales buenos: cicatriz baja cubierta por un biquini o ropa interior estándar, cicatriz umbilical ovalada, pexia de pubis y excelente definición del contorno abdominal y corporal, con baja tasa de complicaciones.

    Resumen. La investigación realizada acerca del concepto de esquema corporal de niñas y niños con y sin necesidades educativas especiales (nee de preescolar, segundo y cuarto grados, proporciona información relevante sobre la construcción de este concepto.

    La mayor parte de las y los estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales, de los tres niveles educativos, expresan conceptos de cuerpo relacionados con las características y las cualidades corporales, aunque algunos también refieren a habilidades corporales. Es importante resaltar que estos conceptos no presentan diferencias sustanciales con los expresados por las y los estudiantes sin necesidades educativas.

    El número de partes del cuerpo mencionadas aumenta a medida que lo hace el nivel educativo y se ve reflejado en las representaciones gráficas de sus cuerpos. No obstante, la mayoría de las y los estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales presentaron mayor dificultad en la ubicación de partes del cuerpo con su respectiva lateralidad.

    Conforme aumenta a nivel educativo, se identifica que las y los estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales asumen las labores domésticas y expresan tener mayor dificultad para las actividades escolares. Asimismo, indican que sienten malestar cuando las personas importantes de su entorno les dicen cosas relacionadas con su cuerpo. No obstante, la mayoría de las y los estudiantes con y sin necesidades educativas especiales expresan percepciones positivas relacionadas con su cuerpo y tienen un sentimiento de respeto por sí mismas(os.

    Por lo anterior, se recomienda que en los procesos educativos se tomen en consideración los conocimientos previos de las y los estudiantes y se enfatice en la enseñanza de aspectos no solo referidos a conocimientos del cuerpo, sino relacionados con la imagen corporal. Es valiosa la aplicación de actividades didácticas que permitan la vivencia y

    ísico dirigido al tratamiento y control de la hipertensión arterial sistémica (HAS. Entre tanto, el mismo aun no ha sido ampliamente incorporado en la práctica clínica, posiblemente por la escasez de evidencias disponibles sobre los límites seguros de la respuesta presórica aguda en esa modalidad. OBJETIVO: Investigar el efecto agudo del ejercicio de resistencia progresivo, de diferentes segmentos corporales, en la respuesta presórica de pacientes con hipertensión arterial sistémica (HAS controlada. MÉTODOS: Veinticinco pacientes (14 mujeres con HAS controlada con medicamentos (64,5 ± 10,8 años de edad y sedentarios, realizaron tres visitas para una sesión de ejercicio de resistencia progresivo aleatoria, en los siguientes grupos musculares: cuádriceps femoral, gran dorsal y bíceps braquial. Medidas de presión arterial fueron obtenidas en todas las visitas en reposo, inmediatamente después de cada serie de ejercicio y después de 5 minutos de recuperación. RESULTADOS: Inmediatamente después del ejercicio de resistencia agudo, hubo significativo aumento de las presiones sistólicas, sin modificaciones significativas de las presiones diastólicas, cuando fueron comparadas a los niveles presóricos de reposo, para todos los grupos musculares y para todas las intensidades evaluadas. Adicionalmente, se observó mayor tendencia a la elevación de la presión sistólica cuando el cuádriceps femoral fue ejercitado en alta intensidad. CONCLUSIÓN: El ejercicio de resistencia de diferentes segmentos corporales promovió aumentos similares y seguros de los niveles de presión arterial sistólica, aunque con tendencia a mayor respuesta de ésta cuando fueron ejercitados grandes grupos musculares en cargas elevadas.BACKGROUND: Resistance exercise has now been recommended as adjunct component of aerobic exercise on physical training program directed to the treatment and control of hypertension (HBP.

Un total de sesenta y tres jugadores (treinta y ocho chicos y veinticinco chicas, fueron divididos en tres grupos atendiendo a sus edades (G1, hasta 11 años; G2, 11 y 12 años; G3, 13-14 años. Se registraron diferentes medidas corporales: peso, talla, pliegues cutáneos (bíceps, tríceps, subescapular, suprailiaco, supraespinal, abdominal, muslo anterior y pierna medial, perímetros (brazo relajado, brazo tensado y flexionado, muslo medio y pierna y diámetros (biepicondíleo de húmero, biestiloideo de muñeca y bicondíleo de fémur. Además del correspondiente análisis antropométrico, se realizaron cálculos para determinar la composición corporal y el somatotipo de los sujetos participantes en el estudio. Así, el somatotipo general del grupo resultó ser de tipo endomórfico-mesomórfico, coincidiendo con el de los grupos G2 y G3. El análisis teniendo en cuenta el factor género, puso de manifiesto un somatotipo mesomórfico balanceado en el grupo de varones, y meso-endomórfico en el de mujeres. Los datos correspondientes a la composición corporal y contrastados según el factor género mostraron un mayor porcentaje graso en mujeres respecto a varones y un porcentaje óseo más alto en el grupo de varones con respecto al de mujeres. Estos resultados coinciden, en parte, con los encontrados en otros estudios realizados con jugadores de tenis de mesa, en los que se ha observado, de forma global, un predominio equilibrado de los componentes mesomórfico y endomórfico sobre el componente ectomórfico.AbstractThe aim of this investigation is to determine the anthropometric characteristics of Spanish young table tennis players with national and international competition level.

    Full Text Available This study attempts to provide a theoretical framework for the corporate governance debate. The review of various corporate governance theories enhances the major objective of corporate governance which is maximizing the value for shareholders by ensuring good social and environment performances. The theories of corporate governance are rooted in agency theory with the theory of moral hazard’s implications, further developing within stewardship theory and stakeholder theory and evolving at resource dependence theory, transaction cost theory and political theory. Later, to these theories was added ethics theory, information asymmetry theory or the theory of efficient markets. These theories are defined based on the causes and effects of variables such as: the configuration of the board of directors, audit committee, independence of managers, the role of top management and their social relations beyond the legal regulatory framework. Effective corporate governance requires applying a combination

    Full Text Available Automobile bodily injury (BI claims remain unsettled for a long time after the accident. The estimation of an accurate reserve for Reported but not Settled claims is therefore vital for insurers. In accordance with the recommendation included in the Solvency II project, a statistical model is implemented for reserve estimation. Lognormality on empirical cost data is observed for different levels of BI severity. The individual claim provision is estimated by allocating the expected mean compensation for the predicted severity of the victim’s injury, for which the upper bound is also computed. The severity is predicted by means of a heteroscedastic multiple choice model, because evidence has found that the variability in the latent severity of individuals travelling by car is not constant. It is shown that this methodology improves the accuracy of reserve estimation at all stages, as compared to the subjective assessment that has traditionally been made by practitioners. = Los siniestros del automóvil con daños corporales suelen permanecer sin liquidar durante largos periodos después del accidente. Una adecuada estimación por siniestros comunicados pero no liquidados es por tanto de vital importancia para los aseguradores. Siguiendo las recomendaciones incluidas en el proyecto de Solvencia II, se implementa un método estadístico para la estimación de la reserva. En concreto, se observa que el coste de compensación se distribuye lognormalmente para diferentes niveles de gravedad del daño corporal. La provisión individual del siniestro la estimamos asignando el valor esperado de compensación media según la gravedad predicha de la lesión de la víctima, para la cual también se calcula el límite superior. La gravedad la predecimos mediante un modelo heterocedástico de elección múltiple, porque hallamos evidencias de que la variabilidad en la gravedad latente no es constante para los individuos que viajaban en un turismo.

    Full Text Available A fin de explorar la relación entre la percepción de los niños acerca de las verbalizaciones y las preocupaciones de sus madres hacia la apariencia física, los estereotipos corporales y la tendencia hacia la estigmatización de la obesidad, se entrevistó a 168 menores, con edades de entre 7 y 11 años, a quienes se les aplicaron tres cuestionarios diseñados ex profeso para evaluar su percepción acerca de la preocupación de sus madres por la apariencia física propia, indagar su sensación acerca de la preocupación de sus madres por la apariencia física de ellos y conocer su percepción acerca de las verbalizaciones maternas sobre el peso corporal y la apariencia física en general; también respondieron la Prueba de Figuras Corporales de Collins. Los hallazgos indican correlaciones entre la percepción de verbalizaciones negativas acerca de la gordura y valoraciones negativas hacia la obesidad, y entre la percepción de la preocupación materna por la propia apariencia con la evaluación positiva de las figuras delgadas y la de verbalizaciones respecto al peso. Lo anterior permite concluir que a mayor cantidad de verbalizaciones negativas hacia el peso y la obesidad por parte de las madres, y a mayor preocupación de ellas por su propia figura, los niños generan estereotipos más negativos asociados a la figura corporal.

  14. Corporate Risk Disclosure and Corporate Governance

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available To date, research which integrates corporate governance and risk management has been limited. Yet, risk exposure and management are increasingly becoming the core function of modern business enterprises in various sectors and industries domestically and globally. Risk identification and management are crucial in any business strategy design and implementation. From the investors’ point of view, knowledge of the risk profile, risk appetite and risk management are key elements in making sound portfolio investment decisions. This paper examines the relationships between corporate governance mechanisms and risk disclosure behavior using a sample of Canadian publicly-traded companies (TSX 230. Results show that Canadian public companies are more likely to disclose risk management information over and above the mandatory risk disclosures, if they are larger in size and if their boards of directors have more independent members. Minority voting control ownership structures appear to negatively impact risk disclosure and CEO incentive compensation shows mixed results. The paper concludes that more research is needed to further assess the impact of various governance mechanisms on corporate risk management and disclosure behavior.

La idea fundamental contempla al núcleo inflacionario como un indicador de la tendencia subyacente de la inflación capaz de capturar el componente del cambio total de precios común a todos los bienes y servicios, cuya persistencia se mantendría en el mediano y largo plazo y que excluye los cambios en los precios relativos de estos. La medida de núcleo inflacionario seleccionada se contrasta con el Índice de Núcleo Inflacionario (INI, indicador de inflación subyacente actualmente utilizado por el Banco Central de Costa Rica (BCCR.El Índice Subyacente de Inflación (ISI, definido como una medida de núcleo inflacionario que excluye un 30,7% del peso total del Índice de Precios al Consumidor (IPC, refleja más fielmente la tendencia subyacente de la inflación y logra capturar el movimiento más permanente del nivel general de precios, aislando las variaciones en precios relativos. Además, el ISI es fácil de calcular e interpretar lo cual ayuda a incrementar la transparencia y credibilidad de la política monetaria. También es un indicador oportuno, aumentando su valor para los que formulan la política monetaria.

To this end this paper will offer: Some Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) definition and process as reflected in the literature available. A distinction will be made between APL and Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) although the procedures and processes for assessing them will be shown to be the same. A brief outline of corporate strategy, as it applies to APL, will be given to form the basis for logical demonstration of how Derbyshire Institute of Health and Community Studies has employed such a corporate strategy. Insights developed and gained from APL research currently being undertaken through the college of nursing and midwifery will be used to inform the development and nature of corporate strategy. A flowchart of the operationalisation of the corporate strategy is offered as an integrative summary of how all the APL ideas have had a positive cumulative effect. The paper finishes by highlighting the possible strengths and limitations of APL corporate strategy.

    2008-02-01

    Full Text Available Las creencias y prácticas religiosas pentecostales constituyen un conjunto elaborado de estrategias de transformación y renacimiento personal. Tanto la reforma corporal como diferentes aspectos de la experiencia vital y biográfica se convierten en factores decisivos de la construcción social de la realidad de los gitanos pertenecientes a la Iglesia de Filadelfia. El trabajo que presentamos se detiene en aspectos como: el cuerpo como objeto y sujeto de prácticas biopolíticas y religiosas; las relaciones entre experiencia religiosa y gestión corporal; las nuevas interacciones sociales y dinámicas comunitarias; los discursos autobiográficos como vehículos ideológicos de la conversión y transformación personal. Todos estos procesos reflejan el modo como las prácticas sociales reelaboran y canalizan los comportamientos y significados del cuerpo. Por otro lado, los dones carismáticos pentecostales canalizan y expresan las demandas individuales y comunitarias de los conversos de la Iglesia de Filadelfia y suponen elementos centrales de la gestión corporal y vital pentecostal. El objetivo es, pues, analizar las prácticas corporales que permiten la transformación de los creyentes y configuran los rituales e interacciones comunitarias de las congregaciones.

    This paper examines the impact of corporate governance mechanisms on liquidity in the MENA region, i.e. Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kuwait, and Bahrain. Using turnover as a proxy for liquidity, we document significant difference in liquidity between the pre......- and the post-crisis periods in the MENA region. In addition, our results show that bulk of this reduction in turnover can be explained due to weaknesses of corporate governance mechanisms. For example, that dividend payout ratio and choice of auditors – proxies for agency problems – can explain the entire...... difference in liquidity between the two periods. Furthermore, our results indicate that more than 50% of this difference between the two periods can be explained by operational and informational complexity of a firm – proxy for transparency.

  5. Corporate dentistry in 2032?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Watson, Michael

    2012-07-01

    During the last 20 years, there has been considerable growth in the number of dental practices owned by corporate bodies. At present, well over 800 practices are owned by such bodies and they employ over 3000 dentists. This paper describes the factors that have led to this growth and explores the advantages and disadvantages of 'corporate' dentistry for patients, dentists, and the dental team. It then considers how and why dental practice may change over the next 20 years and concludes that by 2032 the small one-dentist practice may well be in the past. It is likely that smaller practices will have to work in some form of association if they are to survive.

    This paper examines the impact of corporate governance mechanisms on liquidity in the MENA region, i.e. Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kuwait, and Bahrain. Using turnover as a proxy for liquidity, we document significant difference in liquidity between the pre......- and the post-crisis periods in the MENA region. In addition, our results show that bulk of this reduction in turnover can be explained due to weaknesses of corporate governance mechanisms. For example, that dividend payout ratio and choice of auditors – proxies for agency problems – can explain the entire...... difference in liquidity between the two periods. Furthermore, our results indicate that more than 50% of this difference between the two periods can be explained by operational and informational complexity of a firm – proxy for transparency. We argue that poor corporate governance mechanisms increase...

    Full Text Available Comparative studies have demonstrated that the themes for corporate social responsibility (CSR initiatives are different among nations and geographic regions based on their cultural, political, legal, social, and economic contexts. In this research, which was conducted on 56 corporations from IMI100 (100 Iranian companies with highest annual sales, ranked by Industrial Management Institute or IMI, CSR themes in priority have been identified. Data collected from a semistructured questionnaire and some complementary interviews were analyzed against the results of a reference study over 100 companies from developed countries. The resulted themes, some of which may have several subthemes, were developed in three economic, environmental, and social categories. Beside these qualitative findings, two indices are constructed for indicating the “importance” of and “contribution” to each theme. The results and discussions are supposed to help business leaders, international companies inside Iran, governmental authorities, and researchers to improve CSR discussions and practices in the country where CSR undergoes a less structured platform.

    Full Text Available This research aims to identify the influence of Good Corporate Governance, represented by institutional ownership and managerial ownership, on Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Financial Performance, and also to observe the possible influence of Corporate Social Responsibility on Corporate Financial Performance. This research examines 126 manufacturing companies which are listed in Indonesian Stock Exchange (ISX and have issued an audited financial statement for 2006. The statistical method used to test the hypothesis is Path Analysis. The result suggests that Good Corporate Governance influences both the disclosure of Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Financial Performance and that Corporate Social Responsibility significantly influences Corporate Financial Performance. The result also suggests that CEO Tenure, the controlling variable, holds a significant influence on the disclosure of Corporate Social Responsibility. Yet, there is no strong evidence to support the type of industries as an influencing factor of Corporate Social Responsibility. Furthermore, we found that the latter condition would also apply when we analyze the influence of Corporate Secretary and Nomination and Remuneration Committee on Corporate Financial Performance.

    At the request of the Department of Energy`s (DOE) Information Management (IM) Council, IM representatives from nearly all Headquarters (HQ) organizations have been meeting over the past year as the Corporate Guidance Group (CGG) to develop useful and sound corporate information management (IM) guidance. The ability of the Department`s IM community to develop such unified guidance continues to be critical to the success of future Departmental IM planning processes and the establishment of a well-coordinated IM environment between Headquarters and field organizations. This report, with 26 specific corporate IM guidance items documented and unanimously agreed to, as well as 12 items recommended for further development and 3 items deferred for future consideration, represents a highly successful effort by the IM community. The effort has proven that the diverse DOE organizations can put aside individual preferences and work together towards a common and mutually beneficial goal. In examining most areas and issues associated with information management in the Department, they have developed specific, far-reaching, and useful guidance. The IM representatives recommend that the documented guidance items provided in this report and approved by the DOE IM Council be followed by all IM organizations. The representatives also strongly recommend that the guidance process developed by the CGG be the single process for developing corporate IM guidance.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT The aim of the present study was to compare two different biological similarity criteria, one was based on body mass (M as a theoretical reference system in accordance with the MLT-system of physics, while the other utilized the body weight (W for the same purpose. The mass-dependent allometry should be applied during space flights as well as during fetal and newborn conditions of life, whereas the weight-dependence should prevail in earth-bound physiology. The above mentioned distinctions are relevant not only for the specific metabolic rates but also for numerous biological time functions, as for instance for the heart and respiratory rates of all mammals, whose allometric exponent is b = - 0.09 during fetal life, and b = - 0.25 in all adult specimens.El objetivo del presente trabajo fue la comparación de dos diferentes criterios de similitud, uno basado en la masa corporal (M como sistema teórico de referencia de acuerdo con el sistema MLT de la Física, en tanto que el otro utilizó el peso corporal (W con este mismo propósito. La alometría dependiente de la masa debería aplicarse durante los vuelos espaciales así como durante la vida fetal y la condición de recién nacido, en tanto que la dependencia del peso debe prevalecer en la fisiología terrestre. La distinción antes mencionada es relevante, no sólo para el metabolismo específico y también para numerosas funciones biológicas en relación con funciones de tiempo, como ser con las frecuencias cardiaca y respiratoria de todos los mamíferos cuyo exponente alométrico es b = - 0,09 durante la vida fetal, y b = - 0,25 en todos los especimenes adultos.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available The issue of corporate governance has become increasingly important as globalisation has begun to accelerate and the economic and financial turmoil have intensified. Post-crisis context has imposed the need to expand the prospects for analysis over governance and companies, as well as the need to identify new ways of administration and resource management. From this perspective, the author aims to highlight the conditions, factors and events that have generated profound changes within the business environment, while the analysis is focusing on contemporary changes in the systems of corporate governance and economic mutations, especially in terms of the companies. The establishment of new governance rules is demanding a theoretical approach based on new methodological requirements which are needed to reform theoretical foundations and to promote creative and effective shapes and governance systems.

Se utilizó: la escala de Stunkard y cols. (1983 para establecer la satisfacción con la IC; el cuestionario de Marsh y Southerlan (1994 para medir el AF general y sus dimensiones y otro cuestionario elaborado para esta investigación, donde se recopiló datos personales, sociales e indicadores de la composición corporal para el cálculo del IMC. Los resultados mostraron que el grupo de adolescentes satisfechas con su IC reportaron un puntaje promedio mayor en apariencia física pero menor en el AF general en comparación con las insatisfechas. Se encontró relación significativamente negativa entre IMC y la apariencia física. Por lo tanto se concluye que la muestra en estudio basa la satisfacción de su IC en relación con indicadores corporales como el peso, de manera que a menor peso más satisfechas están con su apariencia física e IC, por lo tanto, se le debe dar una orientación adecuada a esta muestra de sujetos para evitar que puedan caer en algún tipo de trastorno de alimentación, como método drástico para la reducción de peso.

    This paper is the first large scale, quantitative study of the impact of corporate carbon management practices on corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Using data for 2009 and 2010 from the Carbon Disclosure Project survey, we find little compelling evidence that commonly adopted management practices are reducing emissions. This finding is unexpected and we propose three possible explanations for it. First, it may be because corporate carbon data and management practice information have n...

    Full Text Available En esta ponencia, introducimos una medida continua y simple de crédito, que asocia a cada empresa un parámetro de riesgo relacionado con la intensidad del incumplimiento neutral respecto al riesgo por parte de la empresa. Se pueden calcular estos parámetros por medio de los precios de las obligaciones cotizadas y que permiten asignar tarificaciones del crédito mucho más ajustadas que las ofrecidas por diferentes agencias de tarificación. Estimamos las medidas de riesgo en una base diaria, para una determinada muestra de empresas y las comparamos con las tarificaciones correspondientes ofrecidas por Moody y la distancia para medidas de incumplimiento calculadas usando el modelo de Merton (1974. Las tres medidas agrupan la muestra de empresas en varias clases de riesgo, de un modo similar, pero lejos de ser idénticas, posiblemente reflejan los diferentes horizontes de predicción de los modelos. Entre las tres medidas, la correlación de más alto rango se encuentra entre nuestra medida continua y las tarificaciones de Moody. Se pueden utilizar las técnicas que proponemos aquí para obtener la distribución total de las intensidades del incumplimiento neutrales respecto al riesgo e inter-temporales, que son útiles para las estimaciones del tiempo de incumplimiento, así como para valorar derivados de crédito.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available ResumoEste artigo problematiza como os jovens em conflito com a lei são administrados nas medidas socioeducativas de internação e busca a discussão das diferenças entre as formas de atender aqueles que recebem medidas de proteção e aqueles que recebem medidas socioeducativas. No que concerne à gestão, encontra-se uma separação na administração das medidas de proteção e das medidas socioeducativas em meio aberto, geridas pela Assistência Social, e as medidas socioeducativas de internação, geridas pela Segurança Pública. A pesquisa se desenvolveu pelo método cartográfico, que abrangeu entrevistas realizadas com profissionais do sistema socioeducativo, visitas às unidades de internação, leitura de processos jurídicos e oitivas de audiências na Vara da Infância e da Juventude. Conclui-se que a proteção integral preconizada pelo ECA não atinge todos, como é o caso dos adolescentes em conflito com a lei que estão internados, tendo seus direitos violados em prol da manutenção da segurança da população.

Los métodos antropométricos son los más utilizados para el análisis de la composición corporal y constituyen una parte fundamental en la valoración del estado nutricional de individuos y poblaciones. Este estudio tiene como objetivo valorar el estado nutricional de adolescentes extremeños, determinar las variaciones en la composición corporal de acuerdo a los percentiles obtenidos, y proponer esos valores como referencia del estado nutricional de la población adolescente en Extremadura. Material y Métodos: Se realizó un estudio transversal analítico en la Comunidad Extremeña, incluyendo un total de 816 estudiantes de Educación Secundaria Obligatoria y Bachillerato, de ambos sexos y de todas las edades que comprende la adolescencia. Los centros educativos seleccionados pertenecían a poblaciones de diferentes tamaños (de menos de 5.000 a más de 60.000 habitantes. A partir de las medidas tomadas, se determinaron distintos índices antropométricos y se hallaron los percentiles 3, 10, 25, 50, 75, 90, 95 y 97 del peso, la talla y la complexión. Resultados y conclusiones: Se encontraron diferencias significativas en varios parámetros en función del sexo. Los chicos presentaban una mayor altura, peso y área muscular del brazo; por el contrario, el pliegue tricipital y el área grasa del brazo fue mayor en las chicas. Al comparar con estudios nacionales, la altura media de nuestra población era inferior en unos 3 cm en ambos sexos. El peso fue similar, pero presentaban una mayor proporción de grasa en el brazo. Las chicas extremeñas parecen tener un crecimiento más rápido, alcanzando la altura definitiva a una edad más temprana que la media nacional; sin embargo, la talla final es menor a la media. Los chicos presentaban un crecimiento más continuado en todas las edades, con medias

  3. Regulación del peso corporal y del apetito

    Full Text Available Debido a que la epidemia mundial de obesidad no muestra signos de disminución, se ha hecho necesaria una mejor comprensión de los mecanismos fisiológicos subyacentes a la homeostasis energética, el proceso mediante el cual el consumo energético se iguala al gasto energético a lo largo del tiempo, de manera que los almacenes energéticos corporales, en la forma de tejido adiposo, se mantienen constantes a pesar de las variaciones diarias en la ingesta calórica. El sistema que controla el balance energético posee, a su vez, dos componentes: uno en el corto y otro en el largo plazo. El sistema, en el corto plazo, se encarga de regular el apetito o inicio y finalización de comidas individuales, y responde, fundamentalmente, a hormonas gastrointestinales o señales de saciedad que se acumulan durante la alimentación y contribuyen a terminar la ingesta. Los factores de adiposidad, como la leptina e insulina, son señales que se liberan en proporción a los depósitos energéticos del organismo, y su función involucra la regulación del balance energético por periodos prolongados, por lo que se encargan de la estabilidad del peso corporal. La vía central de las melanocortinas representa un punto crucial de integración de estas señales. Los ligandos de los receptores de melanocortina son sintetizados en poblaciones neuronales discretas dentro del núcleo arcuado del hipotálamo, y ejercen acciones en los dos componentes del balance energético. Sumado a su capacidad de respuesta frente a los niveles de hormonas circulantes, el cerebro también responde directamente a los niveles circulantes de nutrientes. Se han identificado dos proteincinasas que sensan los niveles de nutrientes y funcionan como reguladoras del peso corporal y consumo energético en el hipotálamo: mTOR y AMPK. Además de estos circuitos homeostáticos, los mecanismos hedónicos de alimentación son importantes en la regulación del consumo energético, superando la

On this level, the concept of visibility is transformed in terms of the primacy of bodily “I can” and the kinaesthetic awareness that pervades all perceptual fields. In addition, the investigations into kinaesthetic awareness lead to the understanding that one’s own bodily action is extended as well as varied by the kinaesthetic activities of others and thus form an inter-corporeal field wherein visibility is located. Such an extended awareness is the bodily counterpart of transcendental domain.

At the same time, despite significant improvements in corporate governance practices of Russian companies, the level of its quality in comparison with foreign countries remains low. The article highlights both positive and negative trends in the Russian practice of corporate governance. One of the effective corporate governance methods is to ensure feedback between Russian companies and institutional investors.

The current work, an extension of previous studies, focuses on the presence and effect of female stockholders, directors and top managers by analysing their impact on various accounting ratios, market value and technical efficiency. With a view to testing these hypotheses, we selected Spanish corporations that were listed on the Madrid Stock Exchange over the period 2004-2006 as an objective population. Corporate governance information on these companies is available from the CNMV database. Our findings show that companies with higher levels of gender diversity do not obviously outperform other companies with lower levels, in terms of several market and accounting measures. Therefore, gender diversity may not influence corporate performance.Este trabajo se centra en analizar el efecto de la diversidad de género en el rendimiento empresarial.

    Open markets alone do not guarantee equitable and sustainable development. Income disparities are growing both within and between countries to the extent that the marginalization of the poor has become a key challenge of globalization. To meet this challenge, the global community must address the governance gap between global finance/economics and local or national politics in world affairs. This article discusses how globalization is shaping Statoil's approach to corporate citizenship. The Norwegian firm, with 17,000 workers in some 25 countries, is one of the major net sellers of crude oil and supplies Europe with natural gas. Statoil maintains that corporations can contribute to global governance by conducting business in a manner that is ethical, economically viable, environmentally sound, and socially responsible. This contribution can be achieved through development partnerships with national governments, multilateral institutions, and nongovernmental organizations. Norway's Statoil ASA is one of the world's largest net sellers of crude oil and a major supplier of natural gas to Europe. It is the leading Scandinavian retailer of petroleum and other oil products. Statoil employs approximately 17,000 workers and operates in 25 countries.

    The multilevel empirical study of the antecedents of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been identified as "the first knowledge gap" in CSR research. Based on an extensive literature review, the present study outlines a conceptual multilevel model of CSR, then designs and empirically validates an operational multilevel model of the principal driving factors affecting corporate environmental responsibility (CER), as a measure of CSR. Both conceptual and operational models incorporate three levels of analysis: institutional, organizational, and individual. The multilevel nature of the design allows for the assessment of the relative importance of the levels and of their components in the achievement of CER. Unweighted least squares (ULS) regression analysis reveals that the institutional-level variables have medium relationships with CER, some variables having a negative effect. The organizational level is revealed as having strong and positive significant relationships with CER, with organizational culture and managers' attitudes and behaviors as significant driving forces. The study demonstrates the importance of multilevel analysis in improving the understanding of CSR drivers, relative to single level models, even if the significance of specific drivers and levels may vary by context.

Methodology: The paper discusses major issues with references to existing literature and real business cases from S&P500 consumer discretionary sector. Findings: The main fi nding of this paper is that CSRS could provide the company with a competitive advantage as a growing number of consumers become more sustainable conscious.

Bulls from 12 to 72 months old were used and raised in four farms in the North and Northwest area of Rio de Janeiro state. The data are from October 2004 to June 2005. In order to verify farm and age effects on morfometric measures and body weight, variance analysis was carried out. The age influenced the morfometric measures and body weight (P<0,05. The hip and withers height increased until 36 months of age, whereas the thoracic circumference and the corporal weight, until 48 months. The farm effect (P<0,05 was significant for all animal ages, suggesting that different management, weather and genetic herd breed could influence size and body weight. Morfometric measures had high correlations between itself and body weight (0,73 to 0,98, which shows that higher bulls tended to be heavier. Thoracic circumference was highly correlated to body weight (r= 0,97, that is to say this trait can be used to estimate body weight.Objetivou-se estudar as medidas morfométricas (altura de cernelha, garupa e circunferência torácica e o peso corporal de touros da raça Guzerá, e calcular a correlação de Pearson entre as características, assim como analisar os efeitos de idade e de fazenda.

    Full Text Available The subject of this paper is focused on the instruments for the measurement of corporate reputation. Recent research of the elements which influence the success of a company shows a growing interest in intangible values. Corporate reputation itself has been identified as one of the key intangible assets which create the company’s added value. Understanding of the importance of corporate reputation has been determined as a significant component of the company’s competitiveness, that is, of its competitive edge. Reputation is a normal part of our life and an integral part of our society. Our interest in the honesty and integrity of others is firmly established in all cultures and nowadays the focus of this interest is switching increasingly on companies. Corporate reputation can be acquired by means of strong, well-developed strategies, which are crucial for the opinion of stakeholders regarding future stability and competitive sustainability of the company. On the other hand, it should be emphasized that in order to manage it, corporate reputation has to be measured first. However, although the concept of corporate reputation is universally accepted and its significance has been recognized especially in the last two decades, the process of its measurement is still at an early stage and there is no universally accepted instrument for its measurement. Therefore, the author of this paper gives an overview of the instruments used for the measurement of corporate reputation which have gained a foothold through former practical usage.

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this research is to investigate the relationship between consumer perception of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR, corporate brand trust, corporate hypocrisy, and corporate reputation. Based on the one-to-one interview method using a structured questionnaire of 560 consumers in South Korea, the proposed model was estimated by structural equation modeling analysis. The model suggests that consumer perception of CSR influences consumer attitudes toward a corporation (i.e., perceived corporate hypocrisy and corporate reputation by developing corporate brand trust. This in turn further enhances corporate reputation while decreasing corporate hypocrisy. The findings of our study demonstrate that consumer perception of CSR is an antecedent to corporate brand trust, which fully mediates the relationship between consumer perception of CSR and corporate reputation. In addition, corporate brand trust has the role of partial mediator in the relationship between consumer perception of CSR and corporate hypocrisy. These results imply that to better understand the relationship between consumer perception of CSR and consumer attitudes toward a corporation, it is necessary to consider corporate brand trust as an important mediating variable. The theoretical and practical implications of this study are discussed, together with its limitations and potential for future research.

    Waber, Benjamin; Cebrian, Manuel; Crane, Riley; Danon, Leon; Pentland, Alex

    2010-01-01

    Corporate responses to illness is currently an ad-hoc, subjective process that has little basis in data on how disease actually spreads at the workplace. Additionally, many studies have shown that productivity is not an individual factor but a social one: in any study on epidemic responses this social factor has to be taken into account. The barrier to addressing this problem has been the lack of data on the interaction and mobility patterns of people in the workplace. We have created a wearable Sociometric Badge that senses interactions between individuals using an infra-red (IR) transceiver and proximity using a radio transmitter. Using the data from the Sociometric Badges, we are able to simulate diseases spreading through face-to-face interactions with realistic epidemiological parameters. In this paper we construct a curve trading off productivity with epidemic potential. We are able to take into account impacts on productivity that arise from social factors, such as interaction diversity and density, wh...

  3. Discourses and Inter-Corporeity

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available Contemporary European theories have focused attention on corporeity, its surface excitations and passions, and even on politically constructed bodies – how do men and women “carry their bodies”. The great variety of such claims suggests transformations in theoretical thinking, yet such changes were already articulated at another level by phenomenological studies: kinesthetic body. It is obvious that to speak of corporeity is possible only on the basis of analyses of corporeal movements. Thus, the aim of this essay is to disclose the structures of bodily movements, constituting the basis of primordial awareness – not “I think” but “I can”. In the essay there are presented a number of theses of post modernists who have not developed adequate analyses of corporeal movements.

As the relevant factors that determine this impact, the paper analyzes market imperfections and investors’ risk aversion. The results of the present research indicate that risk management contributes to an increase in corporate value if, under the influence of market imperfections, corporate risk exposure is concave. As an expression of market imperfections, the paper analyzes the costs of financial distress, agency costs, and taxation. The results of the research also indicate that the risk management policy should not aim to minimize, but rather optimize risk exposure, by taking into account the costs of risk management, investors’ risk aversion and the competitive advantage a corporation has on the relevant market.

Compliance programs may have undetected weaknesses. Corporate compliance officers, executives, and board members need to be certain that their organization's program has sufficient infrastructure, oversight, and resources; effective education and training; an effective mechanism (hotline) to receive reports of compliance problems; and ongoing auditing and monitoring capabilities.

  3. Medidas agroambientales y conservación de la biodiversidad: Limitaciones y perspectivas de futuro

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    E.D. Concepción

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Las medidas agroambientales se consideran la principal herramienta disponible para frenar la pérdida de biodiversidad asociada a la intensificación de la agricultura. Sin embargo la cuestión sobre si constituyen o no una herramienta adecuada para cumplir este objetivo continúa siendo objeto de debate científico. Las evaluaciones realizadas hasta el momento ofrecen resultados muy variables al respecto. En general, las medidas resultan efectivas cuando su objetivo es la conservación de especies concretas en regiones bien delimitadas, pero esta efectividad suele ser menor cuando sus objetivos son más amplios, como la conservación de la biodiversidad en un país o región. Se han propuesto varias razones para explicar las limitaciones observadas con el fin de mejorar la efectividad de las medidas. En primer lugar se encuentra la dificultad de diseñar prescripciones que beneficien a conjuntos de especies con requerimientos diferentes e incluso contrastados. Otra de las principales limitaciones de las medidas agroambientales es su aplicación a escala local (campos de cultivo, lo que restringe su capacidad para compensar los efectos paisajísticos o regionales de la intensificación agrícola o de otros cambios de uso. Finalmente, las relaciones no lineales entre intensificación agrícola y diversidad a varias escalas espaciales y sus efectos interactivos implican que la efectividad de las medidas pueda variar dependiendo del grado de extensificación de la medida y del sistema en que se aplica. Es necesario que los programas agroambientales adopten un enfoque a múltiples escalas espaciales, combinando la extensificación de las prácticas agrícolas con la conservación del paisaje agrario. Las medidas de conservación más adecuadas en cada caso dependerán del contexto paisajístico, así como del nivel de intensificación del sistema agrícola de interés. En sistemas agrícolas intensivos, con niveles intermedios de complejidad paisaj

  4. Water Stewardship and Corporate Sustainability

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Peter JONES

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to provide an exploratory review of the extent to which some of the world’s leading companies are publicly addressing water stewardship as part of their corporate sustainability strategies. The paper begins with an outline of the growing importance of corporate sustainability and water stewardship. The paper draws its empirical material from the most recent information on sustainability posted on the top twelve ‘Consumer Superbrands’ corporate websites. The findings reveal that a majority of the selected companies address a number of elements concerning water stewardship as part of their more general approach to corporate sustainability. However corporate commitments to water stewardship can be interpreted as being driven as much by business imperatives as by any concerns for environmental sustainability or a desire to maintain the viability and integrity of natural ecosystems. More critically the authors suggest that the selected companies’ commitments to water stewardship are framed within existing business models focused on technological improvements in eco-efficiency and continuing economic growth. The paper provides an accessible review of the water stewardship issues being pursued by some of the world’s leading companies and as such it will interest academics, students, political commentators and business managers interested in water stewardship and corporate sustainability.

La longitud de la pierna y la talla fue medida en 180 sujetos de 30-59 años de edad que asistieron al Ambulatorio Docente Asistencial del "Hospital Universitario de Caracas" durante el período abril-julio de 2002. A partir del coeficiente de correlación de Pearson, se calculó la correlación existente entre la talla con cada una de las variables estudiadas (longitud de pierna, sexo, edad y de todas las variables entre sí para determinar el grado de correlación de cada medida con respecto a la talla. Se efectuaron Análisis de Regresión lineal para estimar la talla de cada uno de los géneros y los resultados fueron probados en una muestra independiente. Las ecuaciones generadas consiguieron una muy buena correlación con la talla real y su error estándar fue calculado.

    Full Text Available The structure of corporate governance is determined by the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different actors in the company structure. Organizationally complex structure of corporate entities, established as a reflection of composite forms of business corporations, give rise to the conflict of interest between the owners, the board of directors and managers, which is generally known as the principal-agency problem. Given the fact that operations of modern companies include interaction with a large number of stakeholders, matters of ethics and accountability to the owners, employees, creditors and the state are the basic postulates which have been subject to re-examination lately. The reasons for reassessing these issues are to be sought in numerous abuses by companies, which are on the other hand highly active in their effors to protect themselves from similar abuses (mainy cyber crime. In order to respond to new challenges and requirements, which include providing for the interests of both shareholders and stakeholders, corporate management is required to establish an adequate system of internal control covering all company activities.

    Full Text Available Corporate communications represent a modern communications discipline used by businesses across the globe to communicate with key stakeholders. Chief executive officers and executive management teams strive to create, protect and advance corporate reputation through corporate communications. Further, by communicating with key stakeholders the company adequately prepares for good news and future problems. With the benefit of technology and greater transparency, corporations of the future will continue to use corporate communications approaches to advance their business. Company's reputation derives from the way stakeholders perceive the organization, how they think, feel or act towards it. It is therefore vital that organizations interested in developing and building their reputational capital; pay careful attention to the way they are perceived and that they manage the relationships with their various stakeholders like a strategic resource. Stakeholders represent both opportunity and threat for the organizations. For instance, if an institution has a good reputation with stakeholders they may provide the organization more latitude to operate. On the other hand a poor reputation may result in creating the legislative that can make it more difficult for an institution to operate.

    In this article, we develop a conceptual framework to understand how a company’s CSR identity becomes defined as a political activity destabilizing the strong identity–image relations. We draw on theories of political CSR and organizational identity–image relations to study how CSR emerges...... as a corporate political activity in a context where the corporate CSR work is first appreciated and later critiqued by the public in the wake of socio-political events. We analyse the micro-organizational processes in the context of macro-political level changes, and we refer to this as the ‘identity......–image dynamics of political CSR’. Concretely, we describe in two vignettes how IKEA’s declared ‘apolitical and neutral’ CSR identity becomes entangled with national and international socio-political events that critically challenge the corporate engagement prior national understandings of citizenship rights...

    Science.gov (United States)

    1995-09-01

    In any event, the decision to institute a corporate compliance program is a relatively simple one. In view of the ambiguity surrounding certain fraud and abuse provisions, and the corporate "death sentence" that may result from program exclusion, a compliance program is always sound corporate policy. To be sure, if the compliance program is administered improperly, it can actually increase the likelihood of whistleblower actions and create a body of potentially hurtful documentation. But these dangers can be minimized by structuring the program to protect the self-evaluative process through relevant privileges. The risks also pale in comparison to the exposure to criminal or exclusionary sanctions when improper conduct goes undetected by an organization.

The increasing interest in firms and the environment...... has ranged widely, including different aspects of corporate environmental management, dedicated "green accounting" and "green auditing" and consumer behaviour and "green marketing". Furthermore, this growth has taken place against a background of generally increasing environmental awareness. The paper...... environmental perceptions, driving forces, and corporate responses. The final section discusses the possibility that corporate environmental management, and the many people involved in this area, are less deeply concerned with environmental imperatives than is usually expressed....

    Full Text Available Introducción: el trabajo con microorganismos puede conllevar a riesgos tanto para el personal que trabaja con los mismos como para el medio ambiente. La existencia de laboratorios de seguridad biológica y la implementación de medidas en la manipulación de los agentes biológicos minimizan el riesgo. Objetivo: evaluar las medidas de bioseguridad adoptadas en el manejo con materiales biológicos en Laboratorios Liorad. Métodos: empleo de una lista de chequeo y análisis de los resultados a través de una Matriz DAFO para valorar si el diseño de la instalación cumple con la bioseguridad. Además establecer un sistema documental para la manipulación de microorganismos y la confección de un plan de capacitación para el personal que trabaja en el laboratorio de control microbiológico. Resultados: la lista de chequeo permitió identificar como principal debilidad el no disponer de un doble pasillo para el traslado del material limpio y sucio. Como fortalezas, cumplir con las prácticas y procesamientos adecuados y el contar con equipos de seguridad biológica. El sistema documental incorporó a los procedimientos establecidos para la manipulación, un acápite referido a la «Peligrosidad y Medidas de Seguridad». El programa de capacitación desarrollado permitió proveer conocimientos específicos referidos a esta temática. Conclusión: las medidas adoptadas en el laboratorio permiten plantear que de manera general se cumplen los requisitos establecidos en materia de Bioseguridad para el trabajo con microorganismos.

    Full Text Available Actualmente, el ejercicio de funciones jurisdiccionales atribuidas a las autoridades administrativas ha generado interpretaciones judiciales confusas, en la aplicación de medidas cautelares innominadas para la protección de derechos de autor y conexos en Colombia; así lo evidencia el análisis realizado a las medidas cautelares descritas en la Ley 1493 del año 2011, que otorgó competencias de inspección, vigilancia y control sobre las sociedades de gestión colectiva de derechos de autor y conexos; en este sentido se requiere describir las funciones jurisdiccionales de la Dirección Nacional de Derecho de Autor respecto a las medidas cautelares y su importancia en la protección de los derechos de autor y conexos, al igual que analizar las medidas cautelares innominadas desde su origen, las características y lo propuesto por la Corte Constitucional en materia de funciones jurisdiccionales de la Dirección Nacional de Derecho de Autor y respecto de la procedencia de las medidas cautelares innominadas como competencia de esta entidad. Se concluye que las medidas cautelares nominadas no son suficientes, y que se hace necesario acudir a las medidas cautelares innominadas, como herramienta jurídica del funcionario administrativo, sin que ello implique arbitrariedad y prejuzgamiento en el proceso.

  17. ¿Cómo validar un instrumento de medida de la salud?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. Carvajal

    Full Text Available Cada vez es más necesario disponer de instrumentos de medida en el ámbito de la salud que se puedan utilizar en la práctica clínica e investigación. Para garantizar la calidad de su medición es imprescindible que los instrumentos sean sometidos a un proceso de validación. Este proceso consiste en adaptar culturalmente un instrumento al medio donde se quiere administrar y comprobar sus características psicométricas como: fiabilidad, validez, sensibilidad y factibilidad. Hay instrumentos de medida del ámbito de la salud, disponibles en otros idiomas pero sin validar al español. Además la metodología para validar un instrumento es poco conocida por profesionales sanitarios, lo que explica el uso indiscriminado de instrumentos sólo adaptados o validados de manera poco consistente. El objetivo de esta revisión es realizar una puesta al día del proceso de validación de un instrumento de medida de la salud y en qué consiste de manera práctica. La accesibilidad de instrumentos de evaluación adaptados culturalmente y validados en distintos idiomas facilitará comparar resultados obtenidos con el mismo instrumento y desarrollar estudios internacionales en distintas culturas.

Además, los participantes respondieron a un inventario de roles sexuales de modo de ver si los sujetos manejaban el estereotipo dominante asociado a lo femenino y sus efectos sobre el prejuicio. La muestra quedó conformada por 80 estudiantes universitarios. No se detectaron diferencias significativas entre hombres y mujeres en los estereotipos asociados a la mujer, ni en la evaluación que se hace de estas (medida explícita. En la medida de IAT las diferencias entre sexos aparecen, indicando que los hombres muestran una actitud implícita más negativa hacia las mujeres. De este modo se confirma que la aparente disminución del prejuicio que puede constatarse en los cuestionarios podría encubrir el hecho de que las actitudes negativas se mantienen a nivel implícito.

MÉTODOS: A pressão arterial casual foi medida em aparelho oscilométrico. Uma subamostra dos participantes do estado do Espírito Santo (N = 255 foi reavaliada com igual metodologia de uma a dez semanas após; além disso, foi realizada monitorização. O diagnóstico de hipertensão seguiu os pontos de corte de 140/90 mmHg ou 130/80 mmHg para a pressão casual e na monitorização, respectivamente. A hipertensão do jaleco branco foi definida pela presença hipertensão na medida casual e normotensão na monitorização e o inverso para a hipertensão mascarada. RESULTADOS: Os dados referem-se a 230 participantes que nas duas ocasiões estavam sem medicação (N1 = 153 ou sob a mesma medicação anti-hipertensiva (N2 = 77. No N1, a normotensão casual foi confirmada em 120 dos 134 pela monitorização. No N2, a monitorização confirmou o controle pressórico em 43 dos 54 participantes com pressão controlada pela medida casual. A concordância geral de diagnósticos entre a pressão casual e monitorada foi de 78% (kappa = 0,44. No grupo N1, seis indivíduos (4% apresentaram hipertensão do jaleco branco e 23 (25%, mascarada. CONCLUSÕES: A concordância de diagnósticos entre a pressão arterial casual e a monitorada foi moderada. A padronização rigorosa da medida casual adotada no ELSA-Brasil foi capaz de reduzir a hipertensão do jaleco branco. A alta frequência de hipertensão mascarada sugere que a medida pressórica da monitorização indique grau elevado de estresse no trabalho.

  5. Audit mode change, corporate governance

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available This study investigates changes in audit strategy in China following the introduction of risk-based auditing standards rather than an internal control-based audit mode. Specifically, we examine whether auditors are implementing the risk-based audit mode to evaluate corporate governance before distributing audit resources. The results show that under the internal control-based audit mode, the relationship between audit effort and corporate governance was weak. However, implementation of the risk-based mode required by the new auditing standards has significantly enhanced the relationship between audit effort and corporate governance. Since the change in audit mode, the Big Ten have demonstrated a significantly better grasp of governance risk and allocated their audit effort accordingly, relative to smaller firms. The empirical evidence indicates that auditors have adjusted their audit strategy to meet the regulations, risk-based auditing is being achieved to a degree, reasonable and effective corporate governance helps to optimize audit resource allocation, and smaller auditing firms in particular should urgently strengthen their risk-based auditing capability. Overall, our findings imply that the mandatory switch to risk-based auditing has optimized audit effort in China.

  2. The path to corporate responsibility.

    Zadek, Simon

    2004-12-01

    Nike's tagline,"Just do it," is an inspirational call to action for the millions who wear the company's athletic gear. But in terms of corporate responsibility, Nike didn't always follow its own advice. In the 1990s, protesters railed against sweatshop conditions at some of its overseas suppliers and made Nike the global poster child for corporate ethical fecklessness. The intense pressure that activists exerted on the athletic apparel giant forced it to take a long, hard look at corporate responsibility--sooner than it might have otherwise. In this article, Simon Zadek, CEO of the UK-based institute AccountAbility, describes the bumpy route Nike has traveled to get to a better ethical place, one that cultivates and champions responsible business practices. Organizations learn in unique ways, Zadek contends, but they inevitably pass through five stages of corporate responsibility, from defensive ("It's not our fault") to compliance ("We'll do only what we have to") to managerial ("It's the business") to strategic ("It gives us a competitive edge") and, finally, to civil ("We need to make sure everybody does it"). He details Nike's arduous trek through these stages-from the company's initial defensive stance, when accusations about working conditions arose, all the way to its engagement today in the international debate about business's role in society and in public policy. As he outlines this evolution, Zadek offers valuable insights to executives grappling with the challenge of managing responsible business practices. Beyond just getting their own houses in order, the author argues, companies need to stay abreast of the public's evolving ideas about corporate roles and responsibilities. Organizations that do both will engage in what he calls"civil learning".

A strong country brand can provide corporate brands with a unique set of values, which supports their positioning on the international market. Simultaneously, once corporate brands achieve worldwide success, they contribute actively to developing new features of the country brand. Consumers pay more and more attention to products' country of origin. When the name of a country is mentioned, they can have positive associations (high quality, modern design, product innovation, which means that the country itself has a powerful brand. However, there are opposite cases where we talk about the weak branding of a particular country. It is necessary to mobilize all the available forces of politicians, business people, artists, sportsmen and scientists to create a strategy for enhancing the image and reputation of a country on the international markets, i.e. for creating the national branding strategy.

    This paper aims to present a perspective to better understand corporate identity through examining the perceptions of Turkish patients and develop a corporate visual identity scale. While there is no study related to corporate identity research on hospitals in Turkey as a developing country, understanding consumer's perceptions about corporate identity efforts of hospitals could provide different perspectives for recruiters. When the hospitals are considered in two different groups as university and state hospitals, the priority of the characteristics of corporate visual identity may change, whereas the top five characteristics remain the same for all the hospitals.

    In this paper we attempt to identify the research frontier in corporate governance using three different approaches: (1) what challenges does the financial crisis 2007–2009 pose for corporate governance research? We show that the financial crisis is a huge natural experiment which has exposed gaps...... in our knowledge of corporate governance and is likely to lead of a rethink of central concepts like shareholder value, debt governance, and management incentives (2) what do we know and what do we need to how about the impact of national institutions on corporate governance? (3) What research questions...... are raised by a focus on current corporate governance practices?...

Foram utilizados dados de 483 vacas, 469 novilhas e 62 machos, de três rebanhos distintos, analisados separadamente para cada categoria a fim de estabelecer equações polinomiais dos pesos em relação às medidas corporais. As correlações simples do peso corporal com pt, cc, cg e ag foram respectivamente 0,807; 0,440; 0,187 e 0,504 para vacas; 0,928; 0,735; 0,819 e 0,880 machos, e 0,942; 0,748; 0,902 e 0,573 para novilhas.

Data on 483 cows, 469 heifers and 62 males in three herds were analyzed for each category using polynomial regression equations of body weight on measurements. The correlations between body weight and pt, cc, cg and ag were, respectively 0.807, 0.440, 0.187 and 0.504 for cows, 0.928, 0.735, 0.819 and 0.880 for males and 0.942, 0.748, 0.902 and 0.573 for heifers. Although the regressions of body weights on cc and cg were significant (P<0.05, the additional goodness of fit of a model that includes these two traits in addition to heart girth does not justify the extra cost for recording these traits. The prediction equations were: for cows, body weight = 12174-187.410 pt+0.97196960 pt²-0.00162382 pt³, for heifers, body weight = 1717-35.167pt+0.238978pt²-0.00046260pt³ and for males, body weight = -3862+76.014pt-0.488837pt²+0.00109755pt³.
