  1. Un futuro por construir: la propuesta del ambientalismo moderno

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available En las últimas dos décadas el movimiento ambientalista ha experimentado cambios profundos que han dado origen a nuevos discursos. En conjunto, estos discursos han dado origen a un nuevo movimiento llamado ambientalismo moderno. Este trabajo examina las principales propuestas de este movimiento con énfasis en la relación entre el ambiente, la energía y el desarrollo y describe las ideas ético-políticas que le permiten articular una visión optimista sobre el futuro de la humanidad. Se observa también que el enfoque interdisciplinario del Ambientalismo Moderno permite proponer soluciones prácticas a los problemas socio-ambientales, construir acuerdos entre actores muy distintos, y establecer puentes entre áreas del conocimiento. Asimismo, este movimiento ofrece también una novedosa interpretación del proceso de desarrollo ligada a una ambiciosa apuesta política. En conclusión, la propuesta del ambientalismo moderno probablemente merece atenta consideración.

  2. Los Anhelos Del Agro

    1942-08-01

    Full Text Available Hablemos hoy del campesino y de su desventura, y hagámoslo, perfectamente libres de toda insana y falaz intención demagógica. Démosle el frente con resolución a esa obscura costumbre de halagar las pasiones de las gentes y explotar con fines proclives las profundas esperanzas y los honrados anhelos de los campesinos, y digamos que en Colombia, y en muchos países de América, se ha abusado impunemente de esa masa resignada que sustenta las economías de estos países, y se ha desconocido el meollo verdadero de sus problemas fundamentales, sin que las fórmulas prácticas de resolvemos íntegramente hayan aparecido, limitándose la acción a meras iniciativas aisladas e inconexas a veces contradictorias, cuyos resultados quedan perdidos en medio de la magnitud total de las situaciones.

    CECILIA Tapia P., DRA.

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available La implementación de un laboratorio clínico moderno es una necesidad actual debido a una creciente solicitud de exámenes, la necesidad de nuevas prestaciones, mayores exigencias en términos de la calidad y un mayor cuidado del medioambiente. Para lograr esta implementación es necesaria la planificación del espacio físico y de la infraestructura, que incluye revisión de la normativa actual y de guías nacionales e internacionales para garantizar un uso adecuado del espacio acorde con el equipamiento. Además, requiere la incorporación de sistemas preanalíticos y equipo automatizado e integrado con el sistema informático que permita el procesamiento de un número importante de muestras, y su trazabilidad. Una vez montados los equipos es necesario asegurar un correcto flujo de trabajo y de muestras que optimice el tiempo de procesamiento y la fluidez del sistema. En relación al cuidado medio ambiental, debe haber un adecuado manejo de los deshechos y un uso racional del papel. Todos estos elementos deben enmarcarse en un Sistema de Gestión de la Calidad para asegurar una mejor calidad de atención, resultados confiables y oportunos, facilidad de acceso a la información, estandarización de los procesos, sistemas de alerta y trabajo en un ambiente bioseguro.

  4. Pierre de Coubertin y el mensaje educativo del olimpismo moderno

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available Los cambios experimentados durante el siglo XIX en ámbitos corno el educativo, el social o el político, propiciarán que la educación física y el deporte se acerquen de manera ineludible al fenómeno del Olimpismo como forma de desarrollo cultural El instaurador de los Juegos Olímpicos modernos, Pierre de Coubertin, aparece en escena a finales del siglo XIX en un momento en el que bullen todas estas reflexiones pedagógicas sobre el hecho deportivo, de la que él mismo es un excelente teórico, faceta esta en la que se ha estudiado escasamente en nuestro país. La cuestión educativa, pese a lo que pudiera considerarse, se hace extensiva a toda la sociedad en su conjunto, creando para ellos universidades populares, donde todas las capas sociales podían acceder al hecho cultural. Además de reivindicar el valor educativo del discurso de Coubertin, los autores plantean una reflexión del discurso olímpico en nuestros días, señalando una lectura educativa con respecto al extendido deporte espectáculo.Changes that have happened in the 19th century regarding education and politics resulted in a closer approach of Pierre de Coubertin to Olympic games as way «f cultural development. Pierre de Coubertin, founded the Modern Olympic games at the end of 1 9 century. At that time there were pedagogical reflections about sports. Coubertin is, as well, an excellent sport theoretician. In our country, there is a lack of studies about this fact. The educational issue extends to the society as a whole, creating courses where any social stratum could study. Apart from claiming, the educational value of Coubertain's theory, authors bring up reflections about the Olympic theory, showing an educational view of sport entertainment.

  5. Il romanzo moderno nella poetica del sé di Paul Ricœur

    Roberto Talamo

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available La riflessione sul romanzo moderno e la nascita di uno dei concetti più importanti dell’ermeneutica del sé, quello di «identità narrativa», sono strettamente intrecciati nel pensiero di Ricœur. Attraverso una lettura di diverse opere del filosofo francese, si mostrerà il percorso di genesi poetica di questo concetto, confrontando altresì la teorizzazione ricoeuriana a proposito del romanzo moderno con le principali acquisizioni su questa forma letteraria da parte della critica e della teoria della letteratura.

  6. El legado del Movimiento Moderno. Conjuntos de vivienda masiva en ciudades europeas del Oeste y del Este. No tan diferentes…

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Javier Monclús

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este artículo es comparar y contrastar algunos conjuntos de vivienda modernos en ciudades europeas del Oeste (“capitalistas” y del Este (“socialistas”. Nuestro trabajo se centra en conjuntos de vivienda masiva construidos en el periodo de crecimiento urbano acelerado que tuvo lugar en Europa principalmente en las décadas de los años 60 y 70 del pasado siglo. El punto de partida más obvio es que las ciudades socialistas son diferentes de las europeas occidentales por la distinta naturaleza de sus políticas urbanas, el sistema de planificación económica socialista centralizada, la ausencia de un mercado del suelo libre, el impacto de la industrial­ización en el sector de la construcción, etc. Sin embargo, hay muchos conceptos en urbanismo, así como en los procesos urbanos, que fueron compartidos en ambos sistemas políticos e ideológicos. El artículo ofrece una perspectiva comparada de la naturaleza de esos conjuntos residenciales modernos construidos a ambos lados del Telón de Acero –Housing Es­tates en UK, Grands Ensembles en Francia, Großsiedlungen en Alemania, Polígonos en España o los grandes conjuntos residenciales socialistas en los países del Bloque del Este– con el fin de entender mejor si –y hasta qué punto– las formas urbanas de dichos conjuntos son el resultado de la cultura internacional del urbanismo moderno.

  7. Tres experimentos Modernos. El proceso de proyecto del edificio Positano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Juan Pablo Tuja

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available El edificio Positano, proyectado durante la década de 1950 por el arquitecto Luis García Pardo, marca un hito en la arquitectura de la vivienda colectiva moderna en el Uruguay. Para concretar este edificio, el arquitecto -y promotor inmobiliario a la vez- desarrolló una serie de proyectos, identificándose tres proyectos completamente documentados. Esta serie posee un fuerte carácter moderno y experimental, el cual se expresa en la volumetría general, la implantación, en el desarrollo tipológico, el diseño estructural y el diseño de los cerramiento exteriores. El último proyecto, realizado en asociación con el joven arquitecto Adolfo Sommer Smith, comienza a construirse en 1959. La serie de proyectos, evidencia un creciente proceso de “abstracción”, tanto formal como conceptual. Lo cual conducirá por un lado a simplificar formas y reducir elementos, y por otro a diseñar dispositivos de mayor complejidad, capaces de resolver funciones diversas al mismo tiempo. A partir de la búsqueda y clasificación de documentación de época –planos, fotografías, artículos, entre otros–, el presente trabajo intentó ensayar una interpretación proyectual, exponiendo las principales preocupaciones y estrategias de los arquitectos. El ensayo buscó reconocer repeticiones, iteraciones, dudas y certezas de un proceso proyectual intenso, que transitó los bordes de la disciplina.

  8. Breve ensayo sobre el devenir del libro moderno

    Roberto Jalil Milad

    2006-08-01

    Full Text Available El libro ha sufrido modificaciones radicales durante su evolución, que ha acompañado a la evolución intelectual y cultural del hombre. Estas modificaciones han afectado tanto su estructura física como su organización interna. La producción artesanal del libro se modificó definitivamente en el siglo XIV con el advenimiento de la imprenta, transformando en forma decisiva la fabricación y venta de libros en una industria floreciente hasta nuestros días, permitiendo su expansión hacia el hombre común. Posteriormente, en el siglo XVIII, la aparición de la enciclopedia le dio un impulso insospechado, ayudando dinámicamente a modificar la forma en que el hombre accedía al conocimiento. El siglo XX, a través del desarrollo de Internet permitía al libro incorporarse a una matriz activa del conocimiento. Las características de Internet, como protovehículo de inteligencia artificial, plantea la disyuntiva de su origen desde una dimensión casual o causal, en una comparación inevitable con los orígenes mismos del lenguaje.

    Full Text Available Sociology has considered money as a means of calculation that makes feasible the adaptation of rational actor to material condictions of society. Money represents a model of action/actor that meets the current needs of social order. Yet it can also be considered as a part of a mentality (spirit of capitalism that promote the accumulation of money as a form of recognition and social distinction The study of imaginary dimension of money highlights the fact that self-made-man wanted to go beyond the present and to last in the memory of society.En sociología el dinero se ha considerado como un medio de cálculo que hace posible la adaptación del actor racional a los medios materiales de que dispone la sociedad. El dinero representa un modelo de acción/actor que se ajusta a las necesidades presentes del orden social. Sin embargo, también puede considerarse como parte de una mentalidad (el espíritu del capitalismo que promueve la acumulación de dinero como forma de reconocimiento y distinción social. El análisis de la dimensión imaginaria del dinero revela que el-hombre hecho-a-sí-mismo quiso trascender el presente y perdurar en la memoria de la sociedad.

  10. Enfoques gerenciales modernos en el proceso de cambio organizacional de la Universidad del Zulia

    Elvira Anniccharico

    2002-05-01

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo es una investigación de tipo descriptiva, que está basada en la información suministrada por los directivos de las dependencias seleccionadas a través de un cuestionario elaborado para tal fin y cuyo objetivo es determinar el grado de aplicabilidad de los enfoques gerenciales modernos (EGM en los procesos del cambio de la Universidad del Zulia. Los resultados evidencian que el Mejoramiento Continuo de Procesos el el EGM más utilizado; pero a pesar de haber realizado esfuerzos para su aplicación, existen algunos aspectos institucionales que debilitan significativamente la incidencia en su efectividad. Se concluye que para la aplicación efectiva de los EGM debe definirse lineamientos estratégicos enmarcados en un contexto, partiendo del análisis de los factores facilitadores y obstaculizadores, donde se oriente el cambio hacia la personalidad de la organización.

  11. Entre Carl Schmitt y Thomas Hobbes . Un es tudio del liberalismo moderno a partir del pensamiento de Leo Strauss

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Daniel Parra Quintero

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available El presente ensayo es una lectura sobre el liberalismo moderno desde el pensamiento de Leo Strauss. A partir de su análisis del Concepto de lo político de Carl Schmitt y su crítica de la "despolitización y neutralización" liberal, Strauss responde con una afirmación del problema del derecho natural, para lo cual es fundamental como primer paso estudiar la filosofía política de Thomas Hobbes. Desde allí Strauss se plantea un punto de contraste hacia una consideración clásica del derecho natural que pueda hacer frente al nihilismo político o cosmopolitanismo apolítico en la modernidad tardía, resultado ambos tanto del histori-cismo radical como del positivismo metodológico. Strauss antepone a la afirmación de la voluntad del poder soberano la búsqueda del derecho natural como representación de la idea de la justicia.

  12. Hobbes y la teoría del Estado moderno. La lectura de Bobbio

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vitale, Ermanno

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available This article gives an account of Thomas Hobbes’s two main legacies to the modern political thought, in the reading that Noberto Bobbio has given in many of his works. The first one is a methodological legacy, which consists in the priority of the demonstratio over any kind of interpretatio. The second is individualism, whose different dimensions are decisive to justify, to compare, and to judge the wide range of political formulae that the Leviathan, as nature of the modern State, can hold. The article ends with a third level of comparison of the opposite fortune of Hobbes’s and Bobbio’s works in their times and ours.

    Este trabajo está dedicado al análisis de dos legados fundamentales de Thomas Hobbes al pensamiento político moderno, en la lectura que de ello ha ofrecido Norberto Bobbio. El primero es un legado de carácter metodológico, que consiste en dar prioridad a la demostratio por encima de cualquier forma de interpretatio. El segundo es el individualismo, cuyas diferentes declinaciones son decisivas para fundar, medir y valorar las diversas fórmulas políticas que el Leviatán, en cuanto esencia del Estado moderno, puede albergar. El trabajo se cierra con un tercer nivel de comparación sobre la fortuna de Hobbes y de Bobbio entre sus contemporáneos y en nuestros días.

    Arq. Sofía Rotman

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available La Escuela Nueva, el libro publicado por Alfred Roth en 1950, permite abordar el proyecto del espacio educativo moderno como un problema de escala transcontinental en el contexto más amplio de difusión de las ideas de la cultura arquitectónica durante la primera mitad del siglo XX. Sin prejuicios en cuanto a las adopciones estéticas singulares de los edificios educativos que analiza, el autor priorizó, por sobre otros criterios, las variables pedagógicas involucradas en el espacio educativo de la modernidad. En este sentido, logró instalarse como una referencia insoslayable para quienes pretendan abordar las relaciones entre arquitectura y pedagogía en la dimensión de su proceso histórico.

    Full Text Available

    EI desarrollo histórico del concepto de mercadeo puede ser estudiado examinando la literatura en los archivos de las Universidades Americanas y Europeas, qua incluyen colecciones de libros, artículos y otras publicaciones y el currículo estudiado en estas Universidades. Desde sus comienzos y la revisión de algunas investigaciones históricas, corno las de Hagerty en 1936, Bratel en 1951, Converse en 1959, Wrigth y Dimsale en 1974, Brian y Monieson en 1990, etc., pero ha sido estudiado más fundamentalmente a través de estas últimas con las cuales se ha intentado configurar una reseña completa de la génesis y evolución histórica de la teoría del mercadeo moderno. En consideración a lo anterior, el propósito de este ensayo se centra en examinar, desde el punto de vista histórico y analítico, .los conceptos de mercadeo en general y de mercadeo agrícola en particular.

  15. El patrimonio urbano moderno en el norte de México: las nuevas poblaciones y colonias del siglo xix

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alejandro González Milea

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo se sugiere que para discutir los valores del patrimonio moderno –en términos de arquitectura y urbanismo–, es necesario revisar lo sucedido con la fundación de ciudades en el siglo xix. Se describen las raíces de la planificación moderna tanto a partir de diversos tipos de proyectos para el establecimiento de poblados, como de ejemplos de “colonias militares y civiles”, con énfasis en el norte de México. Se explica por qué no es posible despreciar dichas realizaciones, sólo por ser de escala pequeña, pues fueron parte de la reflexión, ilustrada y decimonónica sobre el ordenamiento del territorio y la ciudad moderna.

    Odette Pérez Izquierdo

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available El objetivo del trabajo fue identificar la introducción de alimentos industrializados modernos en la dieta habitual de dos comunidades mayas de Yucatán, México, así como algunos factores que, en la escala comunitaria y la de los hogares, podrían explicar la inclusión. Se trata de un estudio de tipo transversal en el que participaron 51 familias seleccionadas a través de un muestreo sistemático sin reemplazo. La información se obtuvo de una entrevista estructurada que incluyó información de variables socioeconómicas, dieta habitual, frecuencia del consumo de alimentos, actividades productivas, disponibilidad de alimentos y apoyos gubernamentales. Se usaron pruebas estadísticas paramétricas para identificar diferencias entre comunidades y familias respecto al consumo de alimentos industrialzados modernos. Los resultados evidencian el consumo de alimentos industrializados de corte moderno en la dieta habitual de ambas comunidades, sin diferencias significativas en esta escala, pero se registraron diferencias en la escala de los hogares. Se discute el papel de la emigración y los programas sociales en la incorporación de alimentos industrializados modernos en la dieta habitual de los hogares mayas de estas comunidades.

    2016-01-01

    La materia de la intervención en el patrimonio arquitectónico se nutre de discursos teóricos que tienen como puntos de partida y de destino la propia realidad. ¿Cómo podemos construir una estrategia donde las bases conceptuales encuentren su traslado a la actualidad? Una alternativa es la de trabajar sobre lo existente, más aún si este legado es moderno, cercano en el tiempo. Levantar el hecho arquitectónico, es decir, dibujarlo, es la primera acción para un conocimiento cierto, porque el dib...

  19. Moral y posconflicto, o la reconstrucción del tejido social moderno colombiano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gil C., Mario Germán Gil C.

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available El presente escrito gira en torno al problema de la moral y el posconflicto, y del papel de la escuela en la construcción de un sujeto que rompa dos herencias, que han impedido la modernidad en nuestro presente colombiano: una moral pastoral-escolástica y el fracaso de la moral formal moderna liberal. Ante los cuales se propone desde la educación una ética de sí mismo, en la consolidación de unas subjetividades radicalmente distintas hasta ahora. Por ello dicho ejercicio del desarrollo humano que rescate las autonomías comunitarias con el acompañamiento de lo pedagógico, puestas de cara al momento del proceso de paz y particularmente al posconflicto hace un llamado del retorno a lo comunitario, como aquellos procesos singulares de tejer propuestas venidas de lo cotidiano, de lo local, que generadas desde lógicas del sentir, restituyan comunidades constructoras de sus propios destinos, donde no tengan cabida lógicas racionales que sólo miden el impacto del avance tecnológico científico, donde se olvida el sentido de tener una existencia en libertad y convivencia mutua de lo humano con la naturaleza, lo cual quizás obligue a reconstruir formas de pensar donde la palabra este en coherencia con lo que se dice y de hace.

    Full Text Available Durante los años de gobierno del coronel Lorenzo Latorre (1876-1880, Uruguay vivió un intenso debate sobre la legitimidad de la religión, su función en la sociedad moderna, y el papel que hasta entonces venía desempeñando la Iglesia Católica como institución modeladora de cultura. El presente trabajo busca atender las principales notas de esa discusión que mantuvieron en particular católicos y metodistas, al tiempo que analiza las distintas respuestas ensayadas por la Iglesia Católica para enfrentar el proselitismo disidente.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elías Castro Blanco

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Indagar por la naturaleza de los derechos implica ante todo aclarar el sentido de esta expresión, en función de las siguientes consideraciones: ¿son los derechos asuntos concernientes a la naturaleza o la cultura?, ¿existen derechos en la naturaleza?, en sentido estricto ¿qué es naturaleza?, ¿qué significa la expresión,derechos naturales? Estas serán las preguntas orientadoras que formarán parte de la discusión expuesta en el presente capítulo, partiendo de una reflexión iusnaturalista clásica, ligada a las concepciones de igualdad y desigualdad de la naturaleza humana. Posteriormente se hará una breve exégesis del iusnaturalismo clásico a un iusnaturalismo teológico, en la versión de Pico Della Mirandola, para llegar finalmente a una concepción antropológica de naturaleza humana, basada en la idea de dignidad -a la manera kantiana- la que ha asumido la modernidad para sustentar la existencia de los Derechos Humanos.

    las nuevas exigencias de la producción flexible. Entre dichas características podemos considerar las siguientes: la creciente participación en el mercado de productos frescos de Estados Unidos, pero también la elevada concentración en dicho mercado y en ese tipo de oferta, sin existir mayor valor agregado; la dependencia externa que se tiene sobre la provisión de insumos y medios de producción, que hacen que esta industria quede supeditada a las decisiones estratégicas tomadas en el país consumidor. Así, también se destacan los procesos de integración económica entre los dos países surgidos de la conformación del bloque comercial de Norteamérica, donde no sólo hay relaciones de competencia entre las naciones sino también de complementariedad.

  4. Las astillas del racionalismo: la crisis del pensamiento moderno en la narrativa mexicana contemporánea

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lilia Leticia García Peña

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Una de las grandes herencias de la modernidad es el ejercicio del racion alismo, su cuestion amiento y fragmentación es la cons tante de las formas subvertidas del pensamiento a partir de la segunda mitad del siglo veinte. La narrativa mexicana contemporánea muestra esta realidad a través de la representación de personajes que piensan obsesivamente, así como del cuestion amiento intenso de los límites neuronales y racionales del ser humano. El trabajo analiza el imaginario simbólico de este proceso de la narrativa mexicana en cuatro casos fundantes del siglo veinte, Juan Rulfo, José Revueltas, Rosario Castellanos y Luis Carrión, y en cuatro obras de los albores del siglo veintiuno de Aline Pettersson, Pedro Áng el Palou, Patricia Laurent Kullick y Socorro Venegas. Desde el punto de vista de losos referentes teórico-o-críticos literarios, el trabajo parte de los planteamientos mitocríticos de Gilbert Durand, discursivos de Mijaíl Bajtín y semióticos de Iuri Lotman.

  5. La presencia norteamericana en el agro sinaloense en la primera mitad del siglo XX

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hubert Carton de Grammont

    1986-05-01

    Full Text Available El presente artículo nos presenta el panorama del agro sinaloense desde finales del siglo XIX hasta los años treinta, en que el gobierno federal realizó el reparto agrario. Los extranjeros tenían el control económico tanto sobre las tierras, como sobre la producción de cultivos, los ingenios azucareros, las concesiones sobre las redes ferroviarias, etc. En reacción contra la política porfirista de dar facilidades a la inversión extranjera en el país, en particular a la agricultura, los gobiernos pos-revolucionarios se vieron en la necesidad de limitar la influencia y el poder de los extranjeros, especialmente de los norteamericanos en la economía nacional. Después del reparto cardenista se prosiguió al reparto agrario con la apertura de los distritos de riego y la aplicación de la Ley Federal de Aguas. A lo largo de estos años, las compañías norteamericanas salieron poco a poco del sector de la producción agrícola. Sin embargo, al cabo del tiempo, a partir de los sesenta las agroindustrias internacionales volvieron a penetrar con tal fuerza que ahora en gran medida la agricultura mexicana está dominada por el capital agroindustrial extranjero, esencialmente norteamericano.

Através da leitura da bibliografia desse autor, de comentaristas e de outros filósofos modernos, esta pesquisa estuda a questão do corpo na fase arqueológica foucaultiana, principalmente no livro As Palavras e As Coisas, destacando as formações discursivas do corpo, da vida e do homem em seus efeitos subjetivadores, com especial referência à constituição discursiva do sujeito psicológico. Verificou-se que Foucault desnaturaliza o corpo, apresentando-o como conceito-chave (ou grade de especificação na produção de discursos sobre o homem moderno, o que nos permite também compreender a psiqué não como emanação ou essência metafísica do corpo, mas como instrumento discursivo, singularmente emergente na história do pensamento moderno.Michel Foucault investiga "la historia de las relaciones que el pensamiento mantiene con la verdad" y como la correlación entre el pensamiento y la verdad es establecida, al traer el cuerpo como elemento discursivo fundamental en los juegos de verdades sobre la constitución del sujeto moderno.

    Mariano Molina Iniesta

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available En el diseño del Jefferson Memorial, Eero Saarinen revirtió la técnica de Hooke para determinar la forma ideal de un arco. Si este descolgaba una línea flexible para obtener el trazado que mejor se ajustaba a su distribución de pesos, aquel definía primero el trazado, y buscaba después la ley de cargas para la cual el perfil elegido resultaba óptimo. Por tanto, el Gateway Arch no sigue ninguna de las funciones matemáticas canónicas asociadas al estudio de curvas funiculares, sino algo que dio en denominarse “catenaria ponderada”. Su carácter impuro le valió la crítica tanto de los partidarios de formas ideales como de los que favorecían una aproximación más libre al proceso de diseño. Sin embargo, su capacidad de asimilar los principios de la mecánica de forma flexible, sin perder el control formal del resultado, fue una constante del Movimiento Moderno de posguerra, deseoso de enriquecer su repertorio estilístico sin renunciar a la racionalidad; representa la búsqueda del equilibrio entre la sumisión a unas leyes de carácter natural o cultural, y la libertad creativa del autor. Y si para la crítica especializada no consiguió ser canónico, para la opinión pública sin duda fue icónico, convirtiéndose en seña de identidad de la sociedad norteamericana de posguerra.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Resumen ¿Cuál es el objeto de estudio de las investigaciones en torno al cuerpo? Esa pregunta epistemológica es el núcleo de este trabajo, el cual problematiza, por tanto, la noción de cuerpo que ponemos en juego en tales investigaciones. Para ello y en discusión con las perspectivas sustancialistas que prevalecen en el área, se propone una concepción crítico-reflexiva que gira en torno a la constelación del modo de corporalidad moderno, estudiando su sociogénesis, tarea que se realiza a partir de una crítica inmanente de los trabajos de Elias sobre el proceso civilizatorio, ya que a través de ellos puede problematizarse la emergencia en lo sociohistórico del cuerpo específicamente moderno, aquel que constituye el objeto de dichas investigaciones en torno al cuerpo.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    David Díaz Soto

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available En el siglo XIX, autores fundacionales del formalismo, como Fiedler o Hildebrand, contrapusieron estrictamente las artes plásticas, «puramente visuales», a las artes verbales del discurso, proscribiéndoles la narración y disociándolas de la temporalidad: se trata del «principio de exclusión del tiempo», vinculado al formalismo. Más tarde, el crítico «modernista» de arte Clement Greenberg planteó la instantaneidad, en tanto que opuesta a la duración, como modalidad ideal de la experiencia artística. Pero el historiador y crítico de arte Michael Fried, en sus textos de los años 60 sobre arte abstracto, se distancia de Greenberg, desarrollando un discurso sobre la temporalidad en las artes plásticas, con nociones como «tiempo visual»; y en sus posteriores textos historiográficos investiga las modalidades temporales de la representación pictórica. La aparente paradoja entre la crítica de Fried a la hipóstasis «literalista» de la duración en las tardovanguardias y el papel crucial que concede a Manet y a la instantaneidad en el origen del arte moderno, la resolveremos atendiendo a su reivindicación de la temporalidad durativa de «lo cotidiano». Así cabe comprender la concepción de la modalidad temporal característica de la modernidad y del arte moderno, a la que apunta su noción teórica de presentness.In the nineteenth century, seminal authors of Formalism, like Fiedler or Hildebrand, strictly compared the «purely visual» plastic arts to the discursive arts of verbal language, ruling out narrativity from plastic arts, which they dissociated from temporality - the formalist «principle of exclusion of time». Later on, «modernist» art critic Clement Greenberg claimed that instantaneousness, as opposed to duration, was the ideal modality for artistic experience. Art critic and historian Michael Fried did not share Greenberg's position, but developed instead a discourse about time in plastic arts. In his early

  11. El papel del cine en el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje en Dirección de Operaciones: El caso de Tiempos Modernos

    Full Text Available El cine constituye una poderosa herramienta didáctica para enseñar dirección de empresas debido a su capacidad para: motivar el interés, provocar el análisis crítico y mostrar con claridad conceptos difíciles de explicar. El cine establece marcos referenciales de sociedades, épocas y teorías dándonos información que de otra forma, a través de los textos de dirección, es difícil de recrear. Entre los docentes de Administración de Empresas y, si cabe, más aún, entre quienes se dedican a la Dirección de Operaciones, la discusión sobre el valor de este recurso permanece viva. No sólo se discute acerca del papel que pueden desempeñar el cine y la televisión en la actividad docente, sino, incluso aceptando que este debe ser crucial, hay un debate muy relevante entre los académicos acerca de cómo se debe utilizar este material didáctico, si bien debe reconocerse que el uso del cine y la televisión en la docencia en Dirección de Operaciones todavía está muy mermado. En el presente trabajo recurriremos al análisis de Tiempos Modernos en cuanto a su potencial para enseñar y aprender Dirección de Operaciones. Como la literatura ha señalado, las representaciones que el cine y la televisión hacen de las empresas suelen ser diferentes de los análisis más convencionales del trabajo (en particular, representan los lugares de trabajo como un punto de implicación, personal y emocional, y explora los marcos e interacciones de trabajo diarios que pueden contener críticas implícitas de un marco capitalista. De hecho, la literatura sobre metodología docente y dirección ya ha considerado casos concretos al respecto. Los Simpsons es un buen ejemplo de ello. Ahora bien, la potencialidad del cine y de la televisión en la enseñanza no finaliza aquí. En este trabajo una serie de escenas nos permiten mostrar cómo Tiempos Modernos permite favorecer la comprensión por parte del estudiante de diferentes contenidos en Direcci

  13. Del “estylo” moderno a la arquitectura moderna: significados de lo moderno en las revistas brasileñas a casa y arquitetura e urbanismo (1923 y 1942

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Juliana Cardoso Nery

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo se basa en resultados de la investigación que analizó un corpus de 225 ediciones de las revistas A CASA y ARQUITETURA E URBANISMO, publicado entre 1923 y 1942, cuyo fin consistió en identificar a través de los textos e imáge- nes divulgados las transformaciones de los significados y formas de expresión de “lo moderno”. Se busca, de este modo, entender cómo este término que albergaba una gama diversificada de expresiones se convirtió en una línea hegemó- nica, bastante definida en la arquitectura brasileña, que incluso admitió la denominación de Movimiento Moderno para ser identificado. El “estylo” moderno aparece en las revistas brasileñas a partir de la Exposición de Artes Industriales y Decorativas Modernas de 1925 en París, donde se presentaron diversas manifestaciones arquitectónicas que fueron, por cierto, identificadas indistintamente como “modernas” en las revistas analizadas. Estas variadas expresiones de lo moder- no, ignoradas por la mayoría de las narrativas históricas, fueron precisamente las responsables de conquistar y fertilizar -en gran parte debido a publicaciones de revistas especializadas- un campo árido en el cual florecerían luego las excep- cionales obras de la arquitectura moderna brasileña de matriz corbusiana, celebradas a nivel nacional e internacional.

    Full Text Available El centro histórico de Camagüey, declarado Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad en 2008, atesora un número considerable de edificios correspondientes al Movimiento Moderno, construidos en la década de 1950, que sufren actualmente modificaciones para satisfacer nuevas necesidades de la población que reside en ellos. Lamentablemente, las intervenciones en el patrimonio no siempre han contado con la asesoría técnica ni con la participación ciudadana necesarias para asegurar, por un lado, respuestas a los requerimientos de la población y, por otro, el resguardo del valioso patrimonio que atesora la ciudad. Ante esta problemática, los proyectos de investigación que articulan la participación de académicos-investigadores, profesionales y estudiantes, constituyen una vía eficaz para alcanzar soluciones acertadas. Mediante un análisis histórico-arquitectónico de los inmuebles, un diagnóstico detallado de las transformaciones y el criterio técnico de los profesionales, así como la incorporación de la población residente a través de las encuestas realizadas; se aborda aquí mecanismos para garantizar un pensamiento de respeto, (hacia los valores espaciales y ambientales que brindan las soluciones de estos inmuebles valoración y sensibilización hacia las condiciones espaciales y ambientales que brindan las soluciones de estos inmuebles, las que están dirigidas a dar bienestar social a quienes los habitan y, al mismo tiempo, deben ser conservadas para legarlas a la sociedad.

    Full Text Available Partindo do procedimento de comparação e oposição entre modelos culturais, método de investigação da antropologia cultural, examinamos os princípios organizadores da pré-modernidade e modernidade e seus efeitos no laço social na modernidade. Dos impasses daí resultantes, podemos situar tanto os sintomas sociais quanto as dificuldades subjetivas. A partir dessa psicopatologia podemos delimitar a clínica psicanalítica, criada por Freud, que pressupõe o sujeito moderno inaugurado por Descartes e que coexiste com clínicas diversas. Tal delimitação implica definir os limites extremos do sujeito moderno, seus ideais e imperativos próprios. É isso que caracteriza a metapsicologia do sujeito moderno, submetido ao imperativo de sair de casa (abandonar a tradição que o funda, referir-se dentro de um tempo e espaço sem centro fixo e submetido ao comando dos objetos. O aparelho psíquico se estrutura a partir do material que a cultura coloca à disposição do sujeito, de tal modo que o inconscientizado singular não se articula fora do social.

  1. Del romanticismo y la ficción a la realidad: Dippel, Galvani, Aldini y «el moderno Prometeo». Breve historia del impulso nervioso.

    Science.gov (United States)

    López-Valdés, Julio César

    Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (1797-1851), mejor conocida como Mary Shelley, con su visión romántica del mundo dio vida a una progenie interminable de historias en la literatura, y su escrito originó el mito del creador mortal que da vida a partir de la ciencia. Aunque parezca sorprendente, la historia ha llegado a considerarse un mito debido a los actos fundamentados en hechos de cierta forma «verídicos» que ayudaron a su origen, como fueron el galvanismo y el estudio del potencial eléctrico en los seres vivos llevados a cabo por dos italianos: Luigi Galvani y Giovanni Aldini. De igual manera, es posible aseverar la influencia directa sobre la obra por parte del folklore europeo de la época que rodeaba al teólogo, alquimista y médico Johann Konrad Dippel, quien hábitó el Castillo Frankenstein desde su nacimiento y además desarrollo el «elixir de la vida». La similitud que existe entre la novela y la vida de los tres personajes históricos hace pensar que la autora Mary Shelley, al pertenecer a una clase socialmente agraciada y educada, tuvo conocimiento de la disputa científica por el entendimiento de la energía eléctrica. El mundo creativo de Shelley, lleno de matices góticos y románticos, demuestra influencia directa de la alquimia al hablar de la «chispa de la vida», así como de los trabajos publicados por Galvani y Aldini.

    Full Text Available Il presente articolo si propone di indagare la versione pascaliana dell’agostinismo, sovente intesa dalla faziosa ermeneutica come anacronistico arroccamento nel medievalismo religioso, che, invece, proprio in virtù nella sua natura inattuale, e della matrice così straordinariamente inesauribile del pensiero agostiniano, si rivela profondamente moderna. Pascal, infatti, addolorato dalla vista di un esistente dibattentesi come una canna tra i venti delle configgenti istanze culturali e religiose del suo tempo, tra le rinnovate forme di eresia e l’imperante libertinismo, non vede in Agostino l’immagine aurea e pacifica di un Santo lontanissimo, non trova in lui il rifugio in un passato rassicurante, bensì di quegli recupera gli elementi drammatici, l’attenzione alla sofferta inquietudine dell’uomo dilaniato dalle dicotomiche alternative, disperatamente disperdentesi nelle malìe dell’esistere, cui entrambi i pensatori indicano il ritorno all’interioritas, a quel cuore non senza (Rragione. Tale ricerca ha messo in luce la riduttività dell’accostamento di Pascal ad Agostino solo per la via del religioso, perché, in fondo, è la problematicità e la problematizzazione del religioso che da Agostino giunge a Pascal e, confrontandosi con la crisi dei valori del 600, perverrà ad avere effetti disattesi.  This article aims to investigate Pascal version of augustinism, often considered from the partisan hermeneutic as anachronistic entrenchment in religious medievalism, which, precisely because of its outdated nature, and so extraordinarily inexhaustible kind of Augustine's thought is revealed to be profoundly modern. Pascal, in fact, saddened by the sight of an existent floundering like a reed in the wind of conflicting religious and cultural needs of his time, including the renewed forms of heresy and the prevailing libertinism, don’t see in Augustine the image of a peaceful ancient Holy, donr’ find in him refuge in a past

    Full Text Available Estudio relativo a la política desarrollada por el concejo de Albarracín sobre el mercado de carne durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVII. La fuerte orientación ganadera de la zona motivó una modesta intervención pública en el mercado y un mayor grado de autoabastecimiento por parte de la población. El municipio moderó también la presión fiscal sobre la carne para sustentar la demanda local. Debido a la carencia de otras producciones agrarias significativas en la zona, los intereses de la elite local mantuvieron esta concepción del suministro durante el Seiscientos a pesar del creciente endeudamiento municipal. Esta política de abasto urbano favoreció la quiebra municipal. En última instancia, esta debilidad financiera redujo la protección al consumidor frente a carestías y el control público del mercado en favor de los tratos privados durante la segunda mitad de la centuria.This paper studies municipal politics carried out by the Albarracín council concerning the meat market during the second half of the Seventeenth Century. Cattle-raising orientation of the area prompted a slight public intervention on the market and a higher degree of self-provisioning by the inhabitants. Town council also decided to moderate fiscal pressure on the meat transactions in order to support local demand. Due to the lack of other significant agrarian productions in the area, interest of local elites help to maintain this supplying conception during the seventeenth century in spite of raising municipal indebtedness. This policy of town provisioning gradually promoted municipal bankruptcy. Moreover, this financial weakness reduced consumers’ protection facing scarcity and public intervention on the market in favour of private transactions during the second half of this century.

A partir del análisis de fuentes diversas como archivos municipales, estadística, periódicos, revistas de automovilistas y de gremios del transporte, entre otras, se busca reconstruir los hitos fundamentales de este proceso de motorización y su impacto sobre la experiencia cotidiana de los viajes en la ciudad. A diferencia de otros adelantos urbanos, la introducción de vehículos motorizados destacó por el sello irruptivo sobre la vida urbana y la relativa autonomía de su desarrollo respecto a la maquinaria política. Estas características dieron origen a múltiples conflictos e incompatibilidades entre intereses contrapuestos, los que hacia el final de la década de 1920 conformaban parte de la vida cotidiana en las calles.During the first three decades of the twentieth century the city of Santiago incorporated three new modes of transportation that profoundly altered the city and the forms of movement within it: the streetcar, the automobile and the bus. Beginning with analysis from diverse sources such as municipal archives, statistics, newspapers, automobile, and transportation union magazines, among others, the article attempts to reconstruct the fundamental milestones of the process of motorization and its impact on the daily experience of transport within the city. Unlike other manifestations of urban progress, motorized vehicles were typified by their disruptive character that generated multiple conflicts and incompatibilities that then became established as distinctive characteristics of modern transit.

    Full Text Available Este artículo analiza la situación financiera de los municipios en Aragón durante los siglos XVI y XVII a través de un ejemplo concreto: el Concejo de Daroca. El constante recurso al crédito generó un creciente endeudamiento que provocó su bancarrota durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVII.

    con la agricultura y la ganadería intensivas. Sin embargo, la diversidad también proporciona una mayor sostenibilidad ecológica en comparación con los sistemas intensivos simples y es útil para conservar el medio ambiente natural. Finalmente, en la actualidad la diversidad puede convertirse en riqueza si se comienza el vínculo del mundo rural tradicional con los sectores modernos de la economía en algunos países del sur y el este, y se desarrolla más en el área mediterránea europea. Desde este punto de vista, se sugiere que el paso de los sistemas convencionales simples a sistemas más complejos que integran los pastos, los campos cultivados y los bosques, propicia la integración de los pueblos rurales con el desarrollo global.Although the Mediterranean Basin is the largest area with Mediterranean climate, at least other 5 areas of the world share the same patterns of rainfall and temperatures in America, Africa and Australia. Because of the common pattern of climate, many crops and management options adopted in the Mediterranean Basin become important also in regions of the other continents. On the contrary, the long history of civilization is a peculiarity of the Mediterranean Basin, where the slow changes caused to the native vegetation have led to integration of human activities without disruption of this vegetation. The gradual changes have conserved large biological diversity and actually introduced exotic plants that are now well integrated in the local vegetation. Moreover, the gradual understanding of the native nature has developed an approach of integration of people into the natural environment and it is now part of a cultural heritage in the area. The Mediterranean Basin remains a very important region for endemisms, number of plant species, number of native crops and native livestock breeds. As a consequence, diversity is probably the most appropriate word to describe the rural Mediterranean world. Traditional systems like nomadism and

Diferenciándose de la arquitectura institucional vigente durante el período de prestación estatal (regulación "endógena", los entes reguladores emergen como el elemento neurálgico de este nuevo esquema. Sin embargo, como se desprende de la experiencia argentina, estos organismos han sido dotados de ambiguas atribuciones regulatorias e inapropiados diseños institucionales, quedando trunca su capacidad real de regulación. A raíz de la difusa delimitación de misiones y funciones e - incluso - frente a las imprecisiones teóricas en la materia, este artículo precisa el alcance de la intervención de los distintos actores del sistema de prestación y regulación: empresas prestadoras, entes reguladores, poderes del Estado (Ejecutivo y Legislativo y usuarios y consumidores.

    Full Text Available Se realiza un estudio dogmático de los conceptos antiguo y moderno de la "obligación", con especial referencia al Derecho romano, así como a las fuentes y clasificación de las mismas. Del mismo modo, se analiza la influencia del derecho romano en el Código civil venezolano, en materia de obligaciones. En este sentido, la definición romana ha predominado en el Derecho Moderno, incluso en la actualidad se puede afirmar que ha permanecido incólume dentro sus concepciones fundamentales. El método utilizado es el descriptivo y documental. Se concluye que las definiciones de las obligaciones en el Derecho Moderno se limitan a reproducir los principios inspiradores romanos y que nuestro Código civil recibió una fuerte influencia del Proyecto Franco-Italiano de las Obligaciones, en el cual se desarrolló el concepto y los efectos de determinadas figuras productoras de obligaciones.

    The first contributions of this collective report are presenting the French first generation agro-fuel industry, its production, its usages, and its public incentives. Then, several authors comment the impacts of these first-generation agro-fuels on the environment: debate on the contribution of the nitrogen monoxide to the greenhouse gas emission assessment, question of the compatibility of the foreseen agro-fuel development with the French commitment of stopping the biodiversity erosion by 2010, contributions of engineering and chemical sciences to the assessment of agro-fuel environmental impact, methodology of assessment of energy, greenhouse emissions, and atmospheric pollutants related to first-generation agro-fuels. Land use by agro-fuels in France by 2015 is the next topic (impacts on agricultural land, relationship between breeding and agro-fuels). Some authors describe the global context: possible global interactions between agro-fuels and environment, sustainable certification of agro-fuels, analysis of the reasons for a world food crisis. The last contributions are dealing with second-generation agro-fuels: state of the art and perspectives, role in sustainable energy development

    Full Text Available En diez años, la televisión española ha pasado de uno a 17 programas dedicados a hablar sobre la vida privada de personajes famosos. Los programas de “cotilleo” o chismes, ocupan las franjas de mayor audiencia y, además, generan cotas de pantallas muy elevadas. El fenómeno desprestigia ante la opinión pública una profesión: la periodística, que ya de por sí tiene muchos detractores. Como fórmula para paliar este problema se propone que a los, hasta ahora, periodistas del “corazón” se les denomine eufemísticamente “comunicadores populares” o, sin eufemismo y usando mejor el idioma: cotillas, alcahuetes o correveidiles.

    The Tropical Agro-Sciences Division has two functions: conduct research on the impact of air pollution on tropical agricultural and to provide training to UPR graduate students and visiting scientists. Since the reorientation of the Center's interests under ERDA, the Division has directed its research activities, with particular emphasis on the effects of atmospheric pollution on tropical agriculture in the Guayanilla-Penuelas region, which has a fossil-fuel power plant, petroleum refineries, and associated industries. This new area of research is important to ERDA because the knowledge gained regarding the effects of air pollution related to energy technology on the agricultural environment and productivity will be useful in planning future energy developments. Information about the potential harm of air pollutants to man through the food chain and about ways of alleviating their impact on agriculture are of practical importance. Studies of the mechanisms involved in pollution injury, protection, and tolerance are of basic significance

    Full Text Available Este ensaio constitui-se em uma reflexão histórica em torno do debate moderno/pós-moderno. O objetivo do texto, de modo mais preciso, é apresentar e rebater algumas das críticas que pensadores – tais como Habermas, Rouanet, Giddens e Lipovetsky – lançam em direção às chamadas teorias pós-modernas, acusando-as de serem, na verdade, discursos de antimodernidade. Na visão desses autores, não há uma ruptura real entre a modernidade e aquilo que tem sido chamado de “pós-modernidade”. Contrariamente a essa perspectiva, o trabalho ora apresentado parte do pressuposto de que há, de fato, um conjunto de deslocamentos – descontinuidades, desencaixes, pontos de ruptura – que separam uma matriz moderna de uma matriz pós-moderna.

  20. Agro-fuels: southern impacts

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Duterme, B.

    2011-01-01

    At a time of controversies about global warming, agro-fuels production is often presented as a future solution for automotive fuels and as a new way of development for southern countries. However, in Asia, South America and Africa, it very often takes the form of huge mono-culture areas of sugar cane, palm oil and soy bean in the hands of multinational companies of the agriculture and food industry. The consequences of these land, social and environmental impacts in Southern countries is an increase of disequilibria and a threat for the diet of local populations by changing the appropriation of lands. Deforestation, private monopolization of lands, concentration of profits, soils and water pollution, biodiversity impoverishment, exploitation of vulnerable manpower, populations migration, violation of human rights are today the consequences of mass production of agro-fuels in Southern countries. To what conditions a fair re-appropriation and a sustainable development of agro-fuels production and consumption is foreseeable? The solutions require a re-shaping of economical and agricultural politics. The book gathers testimonies and analyses from specialists who have evaluated locally the consequences of these energy choices. (J.S.)

    Full Text Available Guadalajara produjo, entre 1930 y principios de los años 70, notables ejemplos de una arquitectura austera y sin pretensiones estilísticas, con énfasis en el sentido espacial y funcional. Sin duda, el creciente uso del concreto armado como sistema constructivo sustituyó los sistemas tradicionales basados en el uso de la madera, el adobe y la piedra. El Movimiento Moderno en Guadalajara reúne las obras de tres generaciones de ingenieros y arquitectos que cambiaron la imagen urbana de la ciudad con las propuestas derivadas de las nuevas visiones de la arquitectura, acuñadas en Europa en el primer tercio del siglo XX. Estas influencias fueron el racionalismo de la escuela Bauhaus y la apropiación de algunos de los cinco puntos para una nueva arquitectura de Le Corbusier: la vivienda elevada sobre pilotes, las cubiertas habitables como terrazas-jardín, la planta libre, la ventana longitudinal y la fachada libre -tanto de ornamento como de función estructural. La selección de obras producidas en Guadalajara, México, se clasifica en los siguientes apartados: Los precursores / Los ingenieros / La Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Guadalajara / Edificios con celosías / Edificios con cubiertas de paraboloides hiperbólicos (Hypar / Edificios con integración plástica / Complejo Agua Azul

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Los límites a las cláusulas de responsabilidad constituyen una temática de tradicional importancia en el régimen general del derecho de contratos, que ha adquirido un protagonismo mayúsculo en la disciplina de los contratos de adhesión y de consumo. En los países europeos y latinoamericanos pertenecientes a la tradición jurídica romana, el marco originario de estos límites se encuentra en la prohibición del pacto de no responder por dolo y la culpa grave. Límite de evidente estirpe romanista y que ubicaba el control de estas cláusulas en la esfera de ejecución del contrato. Posteriormente, fungen de manera especial como límites de estas cláusulas el orden público y las buenas costumbres, por una parte, en la tutela de bienes jurídicos fundamentales como la vida y a la integridad física de las personas, y por otra, como mecanismo de protección de la parte débil de la relación contractual en determinados tipos negociales. Finalmente, en atención a las problemáticas propias de los contratos de adhesión, estos límites se centran en la actualidad en el equilibrio que debe existir entre los deberes y las obligaciones de las partes, de conformidad con el principio de buena fe. En las últimas tendencias jurisprudenciales y legislativas, dicho equilibrio resulta traducido, de un lado, en el límite de la obligación esencial del negocio con relación directa a la causa del contrato, y de otro, en la finalidad o la esencia del negocio que se desprende del tipo legal o la naturaleza del mismo. Los límites a las cláusulas de responsabilidad se trasladan así, en el derecho moderno, de la esfera de ejecución del contrato a la de su configuración. Como consecuencia natural de ello, estos límites se convierten al mismo tiempo en un mecanismo indirecto de control de la libertad contractual que tienen las partes para determinar el objeto y las obligaciones de un negocio.

    técnico-constructivos de las soluciones adoptadas. Realmente interesante en el objetivo principal del presente trabajo, es comprobar el camino contrario, esto es, el grado de influencia de determinados condicionantes materiales de soluciones constructivas de los cerramientos adoptadas por arquitectos de calidad ante los compromisos renovadores de una nueva arquitectura y su resultado final de progreso.
    Es un proceso de cambio continuado que lleva, bajo un punto de vista global, desde la ambivalencia o eclecticismo formal de variadas alternativas historicistas y demás referencias académicas, hasta la depuración compositiva y una pretendida simplificación dialéctica de rasgos modernos y europeizantes. Esquema conceptual reiterado, con recorrido histórico de ida y vuelta, que, sin embargo, no viene acompañado necesariamente por la normal transformación en la técnica y el papel del cerramiento. Por lo que se escribirá una historia paralela, la historia concreta de los cerramientos, de los usos técnicos aplicados a la arquitectura teórica de prestigio centrada en la producción madrileña de, aproximadamente, los primeros sesenta años del siglo XX. Y, finalmente, referir las conclusiones a la formación, en cada caso, de una tendencia técnica en el uso de sistemas de organización compositiva del cerramiento estudiado y del conjunto de ellos, definir la existencia de aplicación de una determinada solución constructiva con relación a una exigencia interna de la arquitectura, como pudiera ser el carácter representativo y social de la obra, sus recursos económicos, el cumplimiento de una normativa legislativa, la adecuación a un programa específico, el creciente nivel de satisfacción social del espacio residencial, los cambios que significaron la aparición de nuevas tipologías estructurales, la presencia del edificio como repercusión urbanística en la organización de la ciudad y sus nuevos desarrollos, etc… Así, un cambio real dentro del

  16. De la "pólis" al Estado moderno: una aproximación al problema de lo político en Heidegger

    Full Text Available Este trabajo parte de la pregunta por la posibilidad de deducir un planteamiento estrictamente político de los análisis ontológicos de la modernidad llevados a cabo por Martin Heidegger. Con este fin, se examina su interpretación del fenómeno griego de la pólis, así como la distinción que en ella se establece entre esta forma de comunidad y el Estado moderno, fundado para Heidegger en la esencia metafísica de la modernidad. Para clarificar esta cuestión se atiende a la proclamación de valores que Heidegger observa en los diferentes modos de organización estatal que aparecen en la época de la consumación técnica de la metafísica. En conexión con ello, se estudia su visión del nihilismo y se ofrece finalmente una hipótesis sobre la forma de Estado que resultaría coherente con la renuncia a los valores que, a su juicio, exige la manifestación del ente en la modernidad como objeto por entero producible.

    Full Text Available This study was conducted in Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu to understand the service preferences of the mobile agro advisory services offered by the public extension system. The agro advisories offered by the e-extension centre of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University were selected for the study. A sample of 200 respondents was selected employing proportionate random sampling method. The study was carried out in terms of dimensions viz., technical components, message frequency and timings, message physical dimension, message channel and message follow up. Results of the survey showed that among the technical components majority of the respondents opined that the information on advance warning of weather risks was very much adequate, the messages on plant protection were relevant and that the messages on advance warning of weather risks were timely. With reference to the message frequency, a majority preferred frequency of the messages on daily basis and preferred to receive messages during mornings.

    Full Text Available Resumo: O presente trabalho trata de modo conciso a respeito da relação entre Estado moderno e globalização, trazendo mais especificamente elementos para uma melhor compreensão no que se refere aos problemas atuais concernentes à soberania e aos Direitos Humanos. Em um primeiro momento, traçará de forma breve o surgimento e a trajetória do Estado moderno, frisando a soberania como fator centralizador do poder jurídico-político do Estado na formação da sociedade internacional moderna. Após, será mais enfatizado o poder soberano, traçando aspectos referentes ao seu desenvolvimento e à sua consolidação, com uma abordagem histórico-teórica. Dadas essas disposições, delineará certas implicações do gradativo advento do Direito Internacional dos Direitos Humanos para a soberania, discorrendo acerca da atual relativização da concepção tradicional desta. Dá-se relevo para uma (reformulação teórica da soberania mais consentânea com a relativização por ela enfrentada na atualidade, quiçá abrindo espaço para um constitucionalismo mundial tendente à efetiva universalização do valor inerente a cada ser humano sem, contudo, retirar de tal quadro o valor autonomia.

    Full Text Available En la región pampeana argentina, pese a las declaraciones de muchos actores y afirmaciones en la literatura, estimamos que el modelo de agricultura del agribusiness representado por los “nuevos productores” de la soja no puede ser considerado como una profundización del modelo de modernización anterior, de los años 1960-70, sino que debe ser entendido como un proceso nuevo en ruptura con dicha modernización. ¿Cuál es entonces el destino de los actores que eran la base del modelo de modernización anterior y en particular del productor moderno convencional? Surgió paralelamente al agribusiness, y desde los años 2000, un nuevo sujeto social en lo rural argentino: el “productor familiar”. Pero ninguno de los dos sujetos, agricultor familiar y agribusiness, representa lo esencial del productor “moderno” autónomo que estuvo en el centro de la modernización “clásica” de los años 1960-70.  En este trabajo mostramos el carácter heurístico de centrar el foco de la atención sobre el destino de la base social de la modernización anterior, y la importancia oculta de su rol actual en los territorios y el agro, pese a su repentina desaparición de los discursos y de las representaciones sociales, así como de las políticas públicas.

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Dentro de las principales estrategias del Movimiento Moderno aparece de forma insistente el llamado «planeamiento en sección»: células habitacionales encajadas dentro de edificios con pisos dislocados en vertical. Utilizando las palabras de Wells Coates, el apartamento tradicional –flat– evolucionó en modelos diferentes, con soluciones de más de un andar –not flat–. Las ventajas de esta estrategia fueron múltiples, desde una mayor eficiencia del espacio al disminuir las circulaciones colectivas hasta la minimización de la transmisión de ruidos entre apartamentos vecinos. Probablemente, el modelo más clásico es el de la Unité d’Habitation de Marseille (1947-1952 de Le Corbusier. Sin embargo, antes y después de éste, fueron construidos innúmeros ejemplares, particularmente en América, que mostraron geometrías aún más intrincadas y complejas. En este artículo de presentan varios de estos modelos con la idea que fue su base y se pone el foco en algunos casos publicados en revistas especializadas, de lo cual surge lo que podría llamarse una línea de trabajo.

This paper presents the main results of the AgriTraining project “Training requirements for the agro-food industry". Activities in pursuit of the objectives of this project involved: (1 analysis of the training needs in the agro-food industry in Portugal; (2 analysis of the training provision and the training organizations; (3 analysis of market trends; (4 definition of a training strategy; and (5 adjustment and development of training strategies for the agro-food sector. This last activity comprised the development of training curricula, suitable for the food sector as a whole and adjusted for the specific needs of some traditional industries, in order to promote the development and competitiveness of the agro-food industry in Portugal. Such training curricula aimed to promote the uptake of innovative technologies and methodologies, increase the ability of agro-food industries to invest and take risks, and enable adoption of European Community standards for production and marketing. Gaps in training supply were identified and the training provision was updated according to the needs of the agro-food companies. It was determined that companies need and demand knowledge and innovation to increase their competitive position for internationalization purposes. It was possible to define a training strategy based on market-orientation for agro-food differentiation.

Nuestra perspectiva, más allá de la interpretación mítica de la obra, parte de la consideración de sus valores y de sus potencialidades desde el punto de vista de la geografía. Y se concreta en tres niveles de estudio: a una contextualización temática y cronológica de la obra; b el análisis de la significación del paisaje en su desarrollo argumental, y c una prospección sobre el problema de la identidad; a nuestro modo de ver, una de las cuestiones de fondo fundamentales planteadas en la novela.

  20. Towards a Gendered Agro-Commodity Approach

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Primrose Nakazibwe

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available Commodity or value chains are the dominant means to channel agro-food products from cultivators to consumers. Direct open markets are either non-existent or insignificant . These chains are also the main mechanisms for integrating underprivileged groups into the world economy. Why do global value chains generate sorrow for many and joy for a few, and why are these outcomes heavily gender biased? To look for answers this article critically reviews the post-2000 and earlier gender literature by proponents and opponents of the mainstream value chain approach. The purpose is to provide a methodological contribution on the integration of gender into the commodity chain approach. Most studies have fo cused on the economic effects of chain dynamics on women in agricultural product and labor markets. Some have extended this reasoning with social and cultural effects. Despite these advances, analytical gaps still exist as most existing research has concentrated on the agricultural nodes of modern, high value chains and lacks a gendered conceptual foundation. Scarce attention has been given to traditional staple crops, non-agricultural nodes, and feed back effects of gender relations on the chain. Our results indicate that an appropriate GCC approach should also consider the gendered impacts of the interaction between the governance structure and the institutiona l embeddedness, as well as the consequences of intra-household division of resources and labor in all stages of the chain. These two conceptual complements will be needed to explain the opportunities and constraints to improve gender equity in traditional and modern agro-commodity chains.

La colonización de las Américas por parte de los anglosajones, españoles y portugueses en los siglos XIV y XV fue el inicio de la globalización y de la importación sin aranceles de nuevos microbios. Hoy día el transporte moderno es más eficaz, el turismo, los negocios y la inmigración se incrementaron, y las guerras internas y externas han desplazado millones de personas como sucede en Colombia. También la tecnología ha contribuido a mejorar la movilidad de los gérmenes, por ejemplo en 24 horas puede viajar el virus del Ébola o una tuberculosis multirresistente en un avión desde África a las Américas. La diseminación no es nueva, sólo que ahora se posee un mejor diagnóstico a través de la biología molecular y otras técnicas serológicas modernas.

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo propõe realizar uma leitura de dois artistas considerados modernos: o uruguaio Joaquín Torres-García e o português Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso. O ponto de partida desta reflexão é o verbete “Informe” de Georges Bataille, publicado no ano de 1929 no Dicionário crítico da revista Documents (1929-1931. Trazemos para a discussão a leitura realizada por Rosalind Krauss e Yve-Alain Bois, por ocasião da exposição L’informe. Mode d’emploi, em que o verbete batailleano é transformado em operação de caráter performativo. Partindo desses teóricos, pretende-se investigar os possíveis desdobramentos de alguns conceitos caros à modernidade, que circulam em torno do esgotamento das vanguardas e se elaboram em processo simultâneo aos próprios movimentos. Além dos trabalhos de Krauss e Bois, alguns textos críticos a respeito de outras obras de Bataille e também sobre a teoria da modernidade servem de referência, ao longo desse ensaio, para contrapor e apresentar as singularidades de duas produções artísticas.

    Full Text Available No ano de celebração dos 500 anos da escritura de “O príncipe (1513”, obra mais conhecida de Nicolau Maquiavel, ainda constatamos sem muito esforço a atualidade deste, assim como sua distinção para compreensão do Estado moderno. O presente artigo assinala alguns aspectos do pensamento de Maquiavel e sua relação com a fundação e manutenção do Estado. Aspectos que o tornaram um clássico da ciência política moderna. Neste sentido, o trabalho esta pautado, maiormente, nas duas principais obras do pensador florentino quais sejam: “O príncipe” e “Os Discorsi”. Ademais, subsidiamos nossa interpretação a partir das singulares teses de Rousseau e Gramsci acerca dos propósitos de Maquiavel. E ressaltamos igualmente o impacto do contexto no qual Maquiavel estava inserido quando elaborou as duas obras. Finalmente, defendemos um “Maquiavel republicano” e, sendo assim, destacamos em suas obras os “pilares” que sustentariam uma república segundo o autor.

    The Agro-Climatic Environmental Monitoring Project (ACEMP) is based on a Participating Agency Service Agreement (PASA) between the Agency for International Development (AID) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In FY80, the Asia Bureau and Office of Federal Disaster Assistance (OFDA), worked closely to develop a funding mechanism which would meet Bangladesh's needs both for flood and cyclone warning capability and for application of remote sensing data to development problems. In FY90, OFDA provided for a High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) receiving capability to improve their forecasting accuracy for cyclones, flooding and storm surges. That equipment is primarily intended as a disaster prediction and preparedness measure. The ACEM Project was designed to focus on the development applications of remote sensing technology. Through this Project, AID provided to the Bangladesh Government (BDG) the equipment, technical assistance, and training necessary to collect and employ remote sensing data made available by satellites as well as hydrological data obtained from data collection platforms placed in major rivers. The data collected will enable the BDG to improve the management of its natural resources.

    Frohberg, K.; Weingarten

    1997-01-01

    Agricultural activities always have impacts on the environment. Whereas soil erosion is a minor problem in Germany water pollution due to modern and intensive agriculture is of major concern. At first the paper discusses to what extent agriculture contributes to environmental pollution in Germany, in particular to the pollution of surface waters (as well as hydroelectric power constructions on the Danube) and groundwater by nutrients and pesticides. Agro-environmental policy in Germany is dominated by command-and-control-measures. Hence, in the second section, recent developments of the most important legal and institutional settings concerning water conservation policies are surveyed with special emphasis on the Federal Water Act and the Implementation of the Nitrate Directive into German legislation by the Fertilizer Ordinance. Thirdly, impacts of alternative water conservation policies are investigated using a regionalized agricultural sector model. Information obtained by this model analysis cover the development of N-balances, potential nitrate concentrations in the recharged groundwater, costs potentially effected by this and resulting agricultural incomes on the country level of the former Federal Republic Germany. The last section focuses on programs promoting environmentally sound farming practices, which gained increasing importance in the Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union in the last years. It is argued that this development will also continue in the future. (author)

    AGROINDUSTRIALES: UN ENFOQUE A PARTIR DE LAS CUADROS INSUMO-PRODUCTO DE CHILE. La voluntad de ciertas potencias agroexportadoras mundiales de liberalizar los intercambios internacionales agroalimenticios con el propósito de acelerar el crecimiento económico y optimizar la utilización de los factores productivos, se opone a las políticas proteccionistas y regulacionistas vigentes en numerosos países donde la agricultura tiene que cumplir otras funciones que las de producir solamente bienes de consumo o de exportación como: autosuficiencia o seguridad alimenticia, equilibro en el empleo, gestión del espacio, desarrollo industrial. Desarrollo integrado o reorientación de los modos de producir en torno a un número reducido de redes (“filières” de producción, este es, a nuestro juicio, el verdadero alcance del nuevo orden internacional en materia agrícola. El objetivo de esta comunicación es proponer - a partir del análisis de los cuadros insumo-producto - un método que permita apreciar el impacto de los intercambios exteriores sobre la estructura interna de los sistemas agroalimenticios. Avanzamos la hipótesis que la aplicación indiscriminada de políticas liberales - agro-export led particularmente - conduce a la uniformización de las técnicas, la especialización de las agriculturas y de las redes de producción y desemboca, a la larga, a la extraversión de la economía. Un proteccionismo bien orientado conduce, por el contrario, a la diversificación de las producciones y de los intercambios interindustriales y contribuye a la estructuración de complejos agroindustriales favorables a la difusión del progreso técnico y la internacionalización de los frutos del crecimiento económico. El análisis del caso chileno, en el largo plazo, es particularmente relevante al respecto. Las nuevas políticas liberales de industrialización basadas en las exportaciones implantadas en Chile después de 1973 han llevado, de cierta manera, a la desestructuración del

    Full Text Available Purpose: the purpose of the research is to design a concept of management system for agro-industrial clusters as self-organizing systems. The transition to a new technological way was marked not only by breakthrough solutions in the organization of production of goods, works and services, but also by the emergence of new (in some cases unique forms of inter-firm cooperation and interaction of economic agents in the real and financial sector of the economy. The concept of "digital economy" becomes the most important in economic research, and moreover - from a practical point of view, modern digitalization technologies in managing the activities of economic entities form new information and communication platforms for economic and scientific exchange. The penetration of digital technologies into life is one of the characteristic features of the future world. Not an exception is the agro-industrial sector, which is both strategically important for ensuring food security and has a high export potential. The article presents the concept of managing the development of agro-industrial clusters as self-organizing systems capable of integrating the activities of small and medium-sized businesses into the value-added chain based on modern information technologies. The obligatory and providing tools, mechanisms for implementing the concept, aimed at eliminating existing problems on the way of forming agro-industrial clusters, are disclosed.Methods: the agro-industrial cluster management model is developed using the methods of economic analysis and synthesis, and functional modelling.Results: conceptual model of cluster development management is presented to be used for the nascent clusters and the development of existing agro-industrial clusters.Conclusions and Relevance: as a result of the conducted research the reasons interfering development of cluster approach in the agroindustrial sector of economy are defined.

O corpus deste trabalho, baseado em teóricos e dramaturgos como Aristóteles, Brandão, Nuñez e Pereira, Roubine, Victor Hugo, Hubert, Esslin, Junqueira, Lopes e outros, elucida uma ideia abrangente sobre a arte teatral e percorre as várias tentativas de ruptura e quebra com a tradição, o que, na realidade, estabelece a história do teatro como elemento de transmissão e identificação das culturas que mais fizeram uso de seus artifícios na expressão de seus anseios de liberdade no mundo. A história do teatro e a literária mostram como seus propósitos pouco mudaram e que as grandes mudanças estão, na verdade, nos valores e no comportamento humano diante das novas realidades política, social e cultural. Concluímos que a tradição é a fonte, é o parâmetro sobre o qual foi construída a arte do presente, inclusive o teatro moderno.

Evalúa la idea tayloriana de que aclarando la autocomprensión de la modernidad modélica occidental comprenderemos las otras modernidades. Desde la teoría de Bolívar Echeverría, parece ser inaceptable esta explicación de la modernidad como modélica y múltiple, porque termina omitiendo las experiencias (mundos de vida de las múltiples y que un patrón de dominio acompaña la modernidad occidental, lo que provoca el surgimiento de contra imaginarios.

It evaluates the Taylor’s idea: clarifying the self-understanding of modernity in Western model, it is possible to understand the rest of the modernities. From the B. Echeverría’s theory, seems to be unacceptable the explanation of modernity as single and multiple, because It ended up skipping experiences (worlds of life which belonged the multiple and the fact that a domain pattern comes with Western modernity, which leads to arise some counter imaginaries.

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Em mais de um aspecto, Cláudio Manuel da Costa foi um homem dividido e uma personalidade contraditória. Suas raízes regionais eram profundas e se evidenciam em toda a sua obra. Mas tinnha estudado em Coimbra e não se cansava de opor o Ribeirão do Carmo ao Mondego. Era conservador e parece ter integrado o grupo de homens que pensaram em romper as ligações políticas entre Minas e Portugal. Delatou amigos e apareceu morto: muito presumivelmente, suicídio, outro indício da alma atormentada. O que se pretende indicar nesta comunicação é a marca da tradição clássica na obra de Cláudio, um dos poetas mais perfeccionistas e eruditos de seu tempo. Tal presença tem sido reconhecida por boa parte da crítica literária, e os escritos de Sérgio Buarque de Holanda sobre o assunto, publicado postumamente, constituem hoje argumento de autoridade. Este texto procura recuperar tanto os argumentos que comprovaram a presença dos autores clássicos em Cláudio quanto o modo original que o poeta encontrou para compor sua obra a partir dessa tradição, aproximando-se, talvez, daquela que foi a principal ruptura intelectual do século XVII no Ocidente: a polêmica entre antigos e modernos.

    Full Text Available Tapioca is an agro-industries product with high consumption level that reached 1.132 million tons per year. However, that potential was not balanced with the productivity levels of tapioca industries due to weak capacity and production period. This research aims to design the development model of tapioca agro-industries which can produce in a sustainable way in terms of quality as well as quantity of product. Study of research location was in the Kaur Regency of Bengkulu Province. This research consists of three stages. The first study was conducted to know the projection of the raw materials availability and product demand using regression and quadratic equation smallest method. The result of calculation projections showed the availability of raw cassava achieved an average of 10 million tons per year and the demand for tapioca 1.36 million tons per year. The second study was done to determine the partnership patterns between company and farmers using pairwise comparison and rating scale methods. From the results of the research note that "Inti-plasma" was the most efficient partnership patterns applied to tapioca agro-industries. The third study was conducted to determine the feasibility of the planned development model. The calculation result of feasibility analysis show the value of benefit cost ratio of 1.23; payback period amounted to 1 year 2 months; net present value of IDR 143,285,734,440.98; internal rate of return 43.55%; and the profitability index 3.56. Based on the overall feasibility criteria, then the model development of tapioca agro-industries can be said to deserve to be realized.   Keywords: agro-industries, financial analyses, factory design, partnership patterns

    At a time of controversies about global warming, agro-fuels production is often presented as a future solution for automotive fuels and as a new way of development for southern countries. However, in Asia, South America and Africa, it very often takes the form of huge mono-culture areas of sugar cane, palm oil and soy bean in the hands of multinational companies of the agriculture and food industry. The consequences of these land, social and environmental impacts in Southern countries is an increase of disequilibria and a threat for the diet of local populations by changing the appropriation of lands. Deforestation, private monopolization of lands, concentration of profits, soils and water pollution, biodiversity impoverishment, exploitation of vulnerable manpower, populations migration, violation of human rights are today the consequences of mass production of agro-fuels in Southern countries. To what conditions a fair re-appropriation and a sustainable development of agro-fuels production and consumption is foreseeable? The solutions require a re-shaping of economical and agricultural politics. The book gathers testimonies and analyses from specialists who have evaluated locally the consequences of these energy choices. (J.S.)

Firstly, I examine the inconveniences of the discourse of deliberate democracy because I want to break up the existing link between the concept of liberalism and the concept of democracy. On one side, I show the impossibility to think democracy from an original model. I examine the impossibility to fix a necessary link between democracy and liberalism. I intend to describe the assumption that supports this whole theory: considering the individual as the axis around whom the discourse is built up.. Finally, I consider the importance of thinking a contingent link between democracy and liberalism to take up again the concept of political freedom as a necessary matter for activating the revolutionary moment of the democratic discourse.

    China has the abundant agro-residue resources, producing more than 630 million tons of agro-residues in 2006, and amounting to about 20% of total energy consumption in rural areas. Efficient utilization of enormous agro-residues resource is crucial for providing bioenergy, releasing risk of environmental pollution, and increasing farmers' income. The paper presented the feasibility of densified solid biofuels technology for utilizing agro-residues in China. The output and distribution of agro-residues in recent 10 years, the R and D of briquetting technology, and the market of densified solid biofuels from agro-residues in China have been analyzed. The result indicated that the abundant agro-residue resources can provide the economical and sustainable raw material for densified solid biofuels development in China. The R and D of briquetting technology at present can strongly support the large scale production of densified solid biofuels. With continued improvement and cost reduction of briquetting technology, along with the support of nation energy policy on biomass energy, the market of densified solid biofuels from agro-residues in China will be more fully deployed. Based on the above mentioned key factors, development of densified solid biofuels from agro-residues in China will be promising and feasible. (author)

    Full Text Available RESUMEN. La obra de František Kupka (Opocno, Bohemia oriental, 1871-Puteaux, París, 1957, uno de los principales pioneros de la pintura no objetiva, es la materialización de una vía a la abstracción que pasa por la inspiración y reivindicación del ornamento. Se trata de una vía poco transitada por el "relato ortodoxo de la modernidad", que procede de la peculiar forma de entender la abstracción que se dio a principios del siglo XX en el centro y en el este de Europa, y que, gracias a emisores como el propio Kupka, acabaría anidando en el corazón de las vanguardias, en París, en torno al año 1912. Descansa en la idea de que la noción moderna de abstracción emerge del discurso teórico sobre el ornamento durante la edad contemporánea, y configura así el mapa de otra modernidad que va siguiendo, en este caso, el itinerario vital y estético de Kupka, desde su Bohemia natal a la mítica Viena fin de siècle, y de aquí, a su desembarco en París como destino definitivo, dejándose impregnar asimismo por estímulos procedentes de culturas no europeas, como la islámica, o ajenos a la alta cultura, como los folclóricos. Ésa es, en parte, la sustancia de la que está hecha lo moderno. Por eso este viaje, como aquí se explica, parece imprescindible para la configuración de alternativas a la lectura canónica de la modernidad. SUMMARY The work of Frantisek Kupka (Opocno, Eastern Bohemia, 1871-Puteaux, Paris, 1957, one of the main pioneers of non-objective painting, is the fruition of a route to abstraction through the inspiration and vindication of ornament. It is a route little travelled by the "orthodox story of modernity", and comes from the peculiar way of understanding abstraction that occurred at the beginning of the XXth century in central and eastern Europe. Thanks to proponents such as Kupka it would end up nestling in the heart of the avant-garde in Paris, in around 1912. It resides in the idea that the modern notion of

    Full Text Available Antonio Muñoz Molina (Úbeda, 1956 es ya, sin lugar a dudas, uno de los más destacados novelistas españoles contemporáneos. boga en la década que va de 1960 a 1970 al “realismo depurado” y al compromiso ético. La narrativa de Muñoz Molina apela constantemente a los cruces de códigos y al hacerlo va adoptando singulares modulaciones; itinerario que en su recorrido irá dando cuenta de un posicionamiento ideológico frente a los fenómenos derivados de la industria cultural –fenómenos camp y kitsch–, los géneros menores, la intertextualidad y lo intermedial. En esta curva, El jinete polaco significaría un punto de inflexión dentro de la producción narrativa del autor. En ella Muñoz Molina escribe una novela inspirada todavía en un motivo pictórico, pero abandona la astucia narrativa del final sorprendente y combina múltiples peripecias, historias cruzadas, diversos puntos de vista que apuntan a construir algo semejante a lo que Mario Vargas Llosa intuyó en Cien años de soledad de García Márquez, una “novela total”.

    Full Text Available Luego de publicarse, Walden Dos sería rechazado a causa de falsas concepciones que sugerían que la obra era la defensa y representación de los valores sociales y económicos capitalistas. Sin embargo, un análisis detallado muestra cómo la edificación de la sociedad propuesta por Skinner critica los pilares fundamentales del paradigma económico y social actual, como lo son el egoísmo como base para el bienestar social, el consumismo como motor económico y la “libertad” según el capitalismo. Si bien Walden Dos no deja de ser una utopía, deja entrever que es necesario implementar los principios de la ingeniería de conducta, aspecto poco considerado por disciplinas como la economía, la ciencia política, entre otras, si se quieren resolver las falencias del sistema actual.

    Full Text Available La historia de un concepto a veces descubre representaciones mentales y expresiones particulares que revelan desarrollos teóricos distintos. Aunque el análisis económico de los derechos de propiedad fue iniciado a comienzos de los años sesenta por Alchian, Coase y Demsetz, el concepto era conocido para los economistas clásicos. En su sentido amplio, la definición de derechos de propiedad estaba presente en las Lecturas sobre jurisprudencia de Adam Smith. Evolucionó notablemente con Ricardo, Senior y J. S. Mill. Recordar las ideas de los clásicos acerca de los derechos de propiedad y del uso de los factores de producción –trabajo, tierra y capital– y su producto mejorará en forma visible el debate actual.

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se estudia un ámbito que normalmente se esquiva y se enmascara: Las prácticas racistas. Esta evasión del tema se da en diferentes planos discursivos, y es una práctica, cada vez más frecuente en América Latina, pues aquí se hace de la integración étnica uno de los ejes centrales de la construcción de sus relaciones identitarias y políticas. Se propone, entonces, este trabajo develar la naturaleza y el movimiento de prácticas racistas presentes no sólo discursivamente, en la práctica política, en la práctica laboral, sino que también están presente en nuestra vida cotidiana, bajo nuevas formas y contenidos que se distancian del racismo tradicional e incorpora una nueva gramática racista, una suerte de racismo moderno, no basado en el fenotipo o características físicas como elemento central, sino en un racismo basado en la diferencia cultural, lo cual plantea un plano más excluyente, pues en este planteamiento el “objeto de racismo” no es un objeto de racismo limitado, como en el racismo tradicional, en el cual siempre es utilizado por quien practica el racismo; en el racismo contemporáneo se pretende una ruptura completa y una exclusión total del otro.

    Agricultural and food-industry residues constitute a major proportion (almost 30%) of worldwide agricultural production. These wastes mainly comprise lignocellulosic materials, fruit and vegetable wastes, sugar-industry wastes as well as animal and fisheries refuse and byproducts. Agro-residues are rich in many bioactive and nutraceutical compounds, such as polyphenolics, carotenoids and dietary fiber among others. Agro residues are a major valuable biomass and present potential solutions to problems of animal nutrition and the worldwide supply of protein and calories, if appropriate technologies can be used for their valorization by nutrient enrichment. Technologies available for protein enrichment of these wastes include solid substrate fermentation, ensiling, and high solid or slurry processes. Technologies to be developed for the reprocessing of these wastes need to take account of the peculiarities of individual wastes and the environment in which they are generated, reprocessed, and used. In particular, such technologies need to deliver products that are safe, not just for animal feed use, but also from the perspective of human feeding. This review focuses on the major current applications of solid-state fermentation in relation to the feed sector.

    Most of the East-African agro-industries are generating very large quantities of organic residues from production and processing of different crops. In the East-African Region the most important of these crops are: Sisal, Sugar, Coffee, Cashew nuts and Pineapple. In other 3. world countries, Palm oil and Cassava (Tapioca starch) processing are main producers of organic waste products. Moreover, large quantities of organic residues are generated from other food processing activities like breweries, consumption of bananas etc. The following pages give examples of setups and system designs of anaerobic treatment systems for some of the residues mentioned above. When considering anaerobic treatment of sisal residues, which constitutes the main agro-industrial biomass resource in Tanzania, two major issues should be considered: Optimal reactor set-up and performance; And optionally, potential methods for pre-treatment of fibre fraction in order to increase the methane yield. The sisal liquid residues are degraded very fast and efficiently in UASB systems. At COD loading rates less than 11 kg COD/m{sup 3} x day, the reduction in organic matter is more than 90% and methane yields obtained are between 373 and 377 ml CH{sub 4}/g COD reduced. The treatment of sisal solid residues in CSTR systems has been examined both at mesophilic (37 deg. C) and thermophilic temperatures (55 deg. C.). (EG)

    Full text: There are abundant of agro-wastes being produced in Malaysia. One of the largely produced agro wastes is the sago hampas. It is known as a strong environmental pollutant due to its cellulosic fibrous material. However, the presence of the starch, cellulose and hemicelluloses in the hampas can be converted into valuable products such as reducing sugars. Hence, this study was performed to investigate the ability of ionic liquids in hydrolysing the ligno celluloses biomass into reducing sugars. Three types of ionic liquids were used, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BMIM Cl), 1-ethyl-3- methylimidazolium acetate (EMIM Ac) and 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium diethyl phosphate (EMIM DEP). The reaction was performed by heating the reaction mixture of sago hampas and ionic liquids at 100 degree Celsius. The concentrations of reducing sugars in the hydrolysates were determined by DNS method. Maximum concentration of reducing sugars were 0.424, 0.299, 0.260 mg/ml for BmimCl, EmimAc and EmimDEP respectively. These concluded that the selected ionic liquids were inefficient in hydrolysing the sago hampas to reducing sugars. (author)

Una valoración de estos instrumentos financieros está basada en una teoría estadísticomatemática muy avanzada, llamada “Cálculo estocástico aplicado al campo financieroactuarial”. El modelo básico asociado a los precios de los títulos (valores, está expresado mediante el movimiento Browniano y ecuaciones diferenciales estocásticas. La valoración de una opción call Europea por Black, Scholes y Merton en 1973, fue un descubrimiento respecto a la comprensión y valoración de los derivados financieros. Su enfoque ha llegado a ser la base empresarial para las matemáticas financiero-actuariales modernas que utilizan instrumentos tales como la “teoría de martingalas” y “control estocástico” para obtener soluciones adecuadas en lo relativo a la valoración de un amplio campo del creciente número de derivados.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo trata de mostrar algunas similitudes entre los pensamientos teóricos de Hans Kelsen y de "'Max Weber en torno a la noción de derecho-Estado. Se muestra que la discusión en torno a la validez y al valor del derecho se puede plantear en términos de la consolidación del Estado moderno. También se propone una explicación de las tensiones entre el iusnaturalismo al que se enfrenta Kclsen y aquello que he denominado la secularización incompleta del derecho.

    Full Text Available Es evidente que uno de los mayores problemas con los que se enfrentan los municipios castellanos a lo largo del periodo moderno es conseguir las provisiones y alimentos necesarios para atender la demanda social. En efecto, asegurar la subsistencia diaria constituía la principal preocupación de los consumidores, lo cual conllevaba que hubiese una gran «coupure économique entre les biens de subsistance et l'ensemble des autres biens». Coincidimos con J.Y. Grenier que, en el modelo de economía preindustrial, el mercado del trigo era determinante y clave dentro de un mercado mayoritario de subsistencia, a diferencia de la carne y el vestido que suponían mercados con una menor demanda; es decir, mercados de lujo.

    Full Text Available El Raumplan es uno de los términos relacionados con la arquitectura del siglo XX con más elaboración intelectual, así como una gran incidencia en la concepción del espacio habitable. En un momento en que toda Europa se sorprendía ante las obras emanadas de las nuevas ideas sobre arquitectura, Loos contrapone su teoría presumiendo de no ser moderno. Ante interminables superficies acristaladas, él prefiere los huecos pequeños y cuidadosamente ubicados. Ante el gusto por la exhibición, Loos apuesta por el placer del voyeurismo. Frente a las superficies atectónicas de sus contemporáneos, él selecciona maderas y piedras nobles para los revestimientos de sus interiores. Finalmente, mientras sus coetáneos más mediáticos diseccionan la construcción separando la estructura del cerramiento y apostando por la estructura reticular de pilares, Loos reafi su condición pre-moderna sirviéndose del muro como elemento primario de construcción y definición espacial. El Raumplan se comprende habitando el espacio y se dibuja con dificultad pero, ¿cómo se construye? Esa es la pregunta a la que intentaremos responder.

    Full Text Available During the last years, tourists started to turn away from the mass tourism and consider the alternative one. Therefore, various forms of tourism were born, among which the rural tourism, to be regarded from two perspectives: it contributes to local and regional development and brings benefits to tourism by creating a new, higher quality holiday concept. This requires the participation of local authorities in the preparing of area development strategies, involving the inhabitants and local traders. By following up the dramatic condition of the Romanian tourism, the insufficient development of the rural tourism and the low involvement degree of the local authorities, we proposed an assessment and recommended strategic marketing alternatives for the improvement of the current condition of the agro tourism guest houses.

    Full Text Available With the increase in the world population and the demand for food, new agricultural practices have been developed to improve food production through the use of more effective pesticides and fertilisers. These technologies can lead to an uncontrolled release of undesired substances into the environment, with the potential to contaminate soil and groundwater. Today, nanotechnology represents a promising approach to improve agricultural production and remediate polluted sites. This paper reviews the recent applications of nanotechnologies in agro-environmental studies with particular attention to the fate of nanomaterials once introduced in water and soil, to the advantages of their use and their possible toxicology. Findings show that the use of nanomaterials can improve the quality of the environment and help detect and remediate polluted sites. Only a small number of nanomaterials demonstrated potential toxic effects. These are discussed in detail.

    Full Text Available Nosso mundo, e nossa vida, vêm sendo moldados pelas tendências conflitantes da globalização e da identidade. A desconstrução da família ocasionada por tantas mudanças sociais, refletiu significativamente na construção das identidades contemporâneas. A revolução da tecnologia da informação aliada a perda de sentido de si, fez com que a sociedade ficasse vulnerável a atitudes que transgridem as normas sociais, os valores morais, como o bullying e o ciberbullying. Segundo Dante e Cleo (2005, p.28 a definição de bullying é compreendida como “um subconjunto de comportamentos agressivos, sendo caracterizado por sua natureza repetitiva e por desequilíbrio de poder”. Este desequilíbrio caracteriza-se pelo fato de que a vítima não consegue se defender com facilidade, devido a inúmeros fatores: por ser de menor estatura ou força física; por estar em minoria; por apresentar pouca habilidade de defesa; pela falta de assertividade e pouca flexibilidade psicológica perante o autor ou atores dos ataques. Com relação ao ciberbullying a tecnologia é apenas um instrumento que reflete a identidade esfacelada deste sujeito pós- moderno, não sendo assim o grande algoz dos últimos tempos. Para fundamentar tais ideias, utilizou-se a pesquisa bibliográfica e pesquisa de campo.

Este artigo sugere que a história das parteiras na era moderna foi mais complexa do que aquilo que se imagina atualmente. Primeiro, o surgimento e a prosperidade das shin-sanba estiveram intrinsecamente ligados às contingências do Japão moderno e ao inter-relacionamento de vários grupos de atores históricos - autoridades da higiene, sankai (ginecologistas-obstetras, outras parteiras e 'clientes'. Segundo, ao longo da era moderna, as shin-sanba não substituíram outros tipos de parteiras; na verdade, os diferentes tipos co-existiram. Por fim, a existência e o status das parteiras dependeram em grande parte de um mercado de serviços de saúde marcado pelo laissez-faire, e as realidades desse mercado muitas vezes contradiziam a retórica médica que favorecia as shin-sanba em relação a outros tipos de parteiras.

  6. Agro-climate Projections for a Warming Alaska

    2017-12-01

    In the context of greenhouse warming, agro-meteorological indices suggest widespread disruption to current food supply chains during the coming decades. Much of the western United States is projected to have more dry days, and the southern states are likely to experience greater plant heat stress. Considering these difficulties, it could become necessary for more northerly locations, including Alaska, to increase agricultural production to support local communities and offset supply shortages. This study employs multiple dynamically downscaled regional climate model simulations from the CMIP5 to investigate projected changes to agro-climate conditions across Alaska. The metric used here, the start-of-field operations index (SFO), identifies the date during which the sum of daily average temperature, starting from January 1st and excluding negative values, exceeds 200 ˚C. Using the current trajectory of greenhouse radiative forcing, RCP 8.5, this study indicates a doubling to 71,960 km2 of Alaska land area that meets the required thermal accumulation for crop production when comparing a historical period (1981-2010) to the future (2071-2100). The SFO shows a correlation coefficient of 0.91 with the independently produced green-up index for Fairbanks from 1981-2010. Among the land areas that currently reach the necessary thermal accumulation, there is a projected increase in growing season length (63-82 days), earlier date of last spring frost (28-48 days), and later date of first autumn frost (24-47 days) across the five USDA Census of Agriculture areas for Alaska. Both an average statewide decrease of annual frost days (71 fewer), and an increase in days with extreme warmth (28 more) are also projected.

    Waste biomass from agro-food industries are a reliable and readily exploitable resource. From the circular economy point of view, direct residues from these industries exploited for production of fuel/chemicals is a winning issue, because it reduces the environmental/cost impact and improves the eco-sustainability of productions. The present paper reports recent results of deep eutectic solvent (DES) pretreatment on a selected group of the agro-industrial food wastes (AFWs) produced in Europe. In particular, apple residues, potato peels, coffee silverskin, and brewer's spent grains were pretreated with two DESs, (choline chloride-glycerol and choline chloride-ethylene glycol) for fermentable sugar production. Pretreated biomass was enzymatic digested by commercial enzymes to produce fermentable sugars. Operating conditions of the DES pretreatment were changed in wide intervals. The solid to solvent ratio ranged between 1:8 and 1:32, and the temperature between 60 and 150 °C. The DES reaction time was set at 3 h. Optimal operating conditions were: 3 h pretreatment with choline chloride-glycerol at 1:16 biomass to solvent ratio and 115 °C. Moreover, to assess the expected European amount of fermentable sugars from the investigated AFWs, a market analysis was carried out. The overall sugar production was about 217 kt yr -1 , whose main fraction was from the hydrolysis of BSGs pretreated with choline chloride-glycerol DES at the optimal conditions. The reported results boost deep investigation on lignocellulosic biomass using DES. This investigated new class of solvents is easy to prepare, biodegradable and cheaper than ionic liquid. Moreover, they reported good results in terms of sugars' release at mild operating conditions (time, temperature and pressure).

    The vulnerability and influence factors of agro-household livelihood in Haiyuan County, Ningxia were empirically analyzed utilizing set pair analysis and obstacle degree model, based on field survey data of impoverished agro-households in 2014. Results showed that vulnerability of agro-household livelihood in Haiyuan County was high in general while it exhibited geomorphological and ethnical differences. Vulnerability of agro-households livelihood in plain areas, valleys and intermountain depression areas were lower than that in earth-rock areas, loess ridge areas and moderately high mountain landform areas. Moreover, vulnerability of agro-household livelihood was higher in mixed Hui and Han ethnic villages than in mono Hui or Han ethnic villages. The villagers' lacking of necessities and the stress of sensitive external geographical environment were considered to be the fundamental reasons of vulnerability of agro-household livelihood. The unreasonable livelihood structure and the unvariant livelihood strategy caused the long-term accumulation of livelihood vulnerabi-lity. The nature of the local environment, which was not easy to change, decreased the accessibility of poverty alleviation resources. Building a clear village water rights allocation system, the implementation of counterpart-assistance to educate impoverished families, increasing investment in improving the diversities of means of living, developing the chains of comprehensive commodity market among villages, were necessary to improve the response capability of agro-household livelihood. The management of vulnerability of agro-household livelihood should put the 'Extending Roads to Every Village Project' on a more prominent position in the 'Extending Radio and TV Broadcasting Coverage to Every Village Project'. Furthermore, the combination of meteorological disaster prevention and insurance enterprise disaster reduction should be sought, and the agricultural production insurance system should be

    Full Text Available The goal of the paper was the analysis of Romania’s the agro-food export, import and trade balance by the EU country group and agro-food product group based on the statistical data in the year 2010 in order to identify the commercial relationships with a positive and respectively a negative impact of the trade balance. The EU trade partners were divided into 4 groups: Central Eastern (CE, Western (W, Northern (N and Southern (S EU countries and the agro-food product groups were: Live animals and preparations of animal origin, Vegetal products, Fats and oils of vegetal and animal origin, Food, beverages and tobacco. The data were processed using the share and comparison methods. In 2010, Romania registered a negative agro-food trade balance with a deficit of Euro thousand 903,148.This was due to the unefficient commerce with the CE and W EU countries, which together recorded Euro Thousand 1,400,298 deficit. The balance was positively influenced by the Southern EU trade partners whose contribution accounted for Euro thousand 513,953. Therefore, the agro-food trade has to be intensified with the Southern EU countries and to become more relaxed with the CE and W EU countries, especially regarding imports. Live animals are mainly required in the CE and W EU countries, vegetal products in the W and S EU countries, fats and oils in the CE and S EU countries, and finally, food, beverages and tobacco in the S and the CE EU countries. Agro-food imports have to be substantially diminished as long as Romania’ s agriculture is able to produce for the internal market and export has to be intensified especially with the countries with a positive impact on the trade balance.

    Full Text Available Agricultural sector as a main contributor to GDP formation in West Sumatera is required to be able to diversify its business in order to highest achieving economic and social development. One diversified agricultural business prospective to be developed is agro-tourism. The development of agro-tourism requires collaboration and synergy between academician, businessman and government as known as triple helix actors. This study is designed with aim to (i map the agro-tourism potential in west Sumatera; (ii analyze the role of each actors, so they may take action in accelerating Agro-tourism development. This research uses observation, depth interview method, literature study and focus group discussion. The result shows that agro-tourism in West Sumatra is more prominent of great natural and cultural value, small scale and lack of local facilities. It also requires relatively high level of investment relative to its return. Therefore government support is likely an essential element of agro-tourism development and the effort may be better directed toward consolidating with intellectual and business also.

    Climate variability and change has direct impacts on agriculture. Despite continual adaptation to climate as well as gains in technology innovation and adoption, agriculture is still vulnerable to changes in temperature and precipitation expected in coming decades. Generally, researchers use two major methodologies to understand the vulnerability of agro-ecosystems to climate change: process-based crop models and empirical models. However, these models are not yet designed to capture the influence of socioeconomic systems on agro-ecosystem processes and outcomes.. However, socioeconomic processes are an important factor driving agro-ecological responses to biophysical processes (climate, topography and soil), because of the role of human agency in mediating the response of agro-ecosystems to climate. We have developed a framework that integrates socioeconomic and biophysical characteristics of agro-ecosystems using cluster analysis and GIS tools. This framework has been applied to the U.S. Southeast to define unique socio-ecological domains for agriculture. The results demonstrate that socioeconomic characteristics are an important factor influencing agriculture production. These results suggest that the lack of attention to socioeconomic conditions and human agency in agro-ecological modeling creates a potential bias with respect to the representation of climate change impacts.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Como resultado crítico derivado de la valoración del mueble entre 1880 y 1930, el GATEPAC estableció algunos parámetros definitorios irrenunciables que condicionaban la determinación del mobiliario moderno —honestidad, coherencia y función, principalmente—, y que estaban en consonancia con las ideas defendidas por arquitectos teóricos relevantes del periodo. Respondiendo a estos tres aspectos básicos, el grupo elaboró una caracterización del mueble moderno, el cual, a su juicio, debía ser: simple, ligero, transportable, higiénico y estándar. Conforme a estos aspectos, los arquitectos del GATEPAC desarrollaron desde finales de los años 20 y hasta 1936 un conjunto de sillas estándar que sirvieron como objeto de experimentación de las reflexiones del grupo. Estas piezas sufrieron una evolución desde el mueble de acero hasta el mueble de madera y mimbre —el mueble popular. En este desarrollo permanecieron vigentes los principios alcanzados en la modernidad, pero las formas y materiales fueron transformados. Es en estos últimos aspectos donde ese progreso puede entenderse como una evolución inversa en la que, una vez conseguida la liberación del mobiliario de lo decorativo e inútil, se regresa hacia unas formas y materiales propias del universo popular.

    Improvement in nutrient recycling in agriculture is essential to maintain food production while minimising nutrient pollution of the environment. For this purpose, understanding and modelling nutrient cycles in food and related agro-industrial systems is a crucial task. Although nutrient management has been addressed at the plot and farm scales for many years now in the agricultural sciences, there is a need to upscale these approaches to capture the additional drivers of nutrient cycles that may occur at the local, i.e. district, scale. Industrial ecology principles provide sound bases to analyse nutrient cycling in complex systems. However, since agro-food social-ecological systems have specific ecological and social dimensions, we argue that a new field, referred to as “Agro-Industrial Ecology”, is needed to study these systems. In this paper, we review the literature on nutrient cycling in complex social-ecological systems that can provide a basis for Agro-Industrial Ecology. We identify and describe three major approaches: Environmental Assessment tools, Stock and Flow Analysis methods and Agent-based models. We then discuss their advantages and drawbacks for assessing and modelling nutrient cycles in agro-food systems in terms of their purpose and scope, object representation and time-spatial dynamics. We finally argue that combining stock-flow methods with both agent-based models and environmental impact assessment tools is a promising way to analyse the role of economic agents on nutrient flows and losses and to explore scenarios that better close the nutrient cycles at the local scale. - Highlights: • An Agro-Industrial Ecology perspective is essential to model local agro-food systems. • We provide a classification of nutrient (N, P) models, methods and assessment tools. • We distinguished Environmental Assessment, Stock and flow and Agent-based approaches. • The pros and cons of these nutrient cycle models, methods and tools are discussed.

    Full Text Available Se presenta una lectura del "Facundo" de Domingo F. Sarmiento y, en particular, de su más general visión de la historia y de la realidad argentina y latinoamericana a partir del esquema dicotómico de civilización y barbarie que tendrá mucha suerte en las narraciones de los procesos del modernización latinoamericanos por lo menos hasta la segunda mitad del siglo XX. A través del análisis de algunos entre los múltiples niveles narrativos del "Facundo" se quiere mostrar como tal imagen dicotómica se va cristalizando en el texto. Partiendo del espacio infinito y vacío de la pampa y pasando por una antropología del gaucho - de su manera de vivir y de conducir la guerra - Sarmiento conduce el lector hasta la forma típicamente americana de despotismo, el caudillismo, llegado en Argentina a su epopeya final con el régimen de Juan M. de Rosas. En la última parte se intenta injertar el esquema dicotómico del Facundo al interior de la más general reflexión del Occidente sobre la modernidad y sus alteridades, a través por un lado del prisma orientalista y por el otro de las mismas fuentes del pensamiento moderno europeo y en particular de Locke y Hobbes.

    2015-12-01

    The Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) uses the Climate Hazards Group Infrared Precipitation with Stations (CHIRPS) to monitor agricultural food production in different regions of the world. CHIRPS is a 1981-present, 5 day, approximately 5km resolution, rainfall product based on a combination of geostationary satellite observations, a high resolution climatology and in situ station observations. Furthermore, FEWS NET has developed a gridded implementation of the Water Requirement Satisfaction Index (WRSI), a water balance measurement indicator of crop performance. This study takes advantage of the CHIRPS' long term period of record and high spatial and temporal resolution to examine agro-climatic trends in Ethiopia. We use the CHIRPS rainfall dataset to calculate the WRSI for the boreal spring and summer crop seasons, as well as for spring-summer rangelands conditions. We find substantial long term rainfall declines in the spring and summer seasons across southeastern and northeastern Ethiopia. Crop Model results indicate that rainfall declines in the cropped regions have been associated with water deficits during the critical grain filling periods in well populated and/or highly vulnerable parts of eastern Ethiopia. WRSI results in the pastoral areas indicate substantial reductions in rangeland health during the later part of the growing seasons. These health declines correspond to the regions of Somaliland and Afar that have experienced chronic severe food insecurity since 2010. Key words: CHIRPS, satellite estimated rainfall, agricultural production

    The present study describes an environmentally friendly vanillin production processes from agro industrial wastes. Ferulic 'acid is a well-known product of cereal. brans and sugarcane bagasse lignin degradation, ferulic acid and cellulose degradation sugars were used as feedstock for the vanillin bio production by Debaryomyces hansenii. The bioconversion of ferulic into vanillin by Debaryomyces hansenii was affected by the type and amount of ferulic acid. Addition of purified ferulic acid (2 g/l) and using of adapted yeast cells. increase the yield of vanillin and decrease the secondary products. Yeast extract (3 g/l) and glucose (20 g/l) proved to be the best component as co-substrates for bio production of vanillin. Variable aeration conditions were tested by simultaneously vanilIin the ratio of medium to vessel volume and the agitation speed. under excess aeration, oxidation of a, significant portion of vanillin to vanillic acid occur, thus reducing the vanillin yield. Increasing the inoculum size up to 1 g/I and using low doses of gamma irradiation (0.25 kGy) increase the vanillin production. Under optimum conditions vanillin production from ferulic acid by Debaryomyces attained very high level of 1531 mg/1 with a molar yield of 76.5%

    Preparation and characterization of raw and activated carbon derived from three different selected agricultural wastes: kola nut pod raw and activated (KNPR and KNPA), bean husk raw and activated (BHR and BHA) and coconut husk raw and activated (CHR and CHA) were investigated, respectively. Influences of carbonization and acid activation on the activated carbon were investigated using SEM, FTIR, EDX, pHpzc and Boehm titration techniques, respectively. Carbonization was done at 350 °C for 2 h followed by activation with 0.3 M H3PO4 (ortho-phosphoric acid). Results obtained from SEM, FTIR, and EDX revealed that, carbonization followed by acid activation had a significant influence on morphology and elemental composition of the samples. SEM showed well-developed pores on the surface of the precursors after acid treatment, FTIR spectra revealed reduction, broadening, disappearance or appearance of new peaks after acid activation. EDX results showed highest percentage of carbon by atom respectively in the order BHA > KNPA > CHA respectively. The pHpzc was found to be 5.32, 4.57 and 3.69 for KNPA, BHA and CHA, respectively. Boehm titration result compliments that of pHpzc, indicating that the surfaces of the prepared adsorbents are predominantly acidic. This study promotes a sustainable innovative use of agro-wastes in the production of cheap and readily available activated carbons, thereby ensuring more affordable water and effluent treatment adsorbents.

    The agro-meteorology has for object the knowledge of the physical environment where the plants and the animals are developed, to make of him a better use, with the primordial purpose of optimizing the agricultural production. The climatology of the Caribbean Region, it is governed by the zonal processes of thermal and dynamic convection, together with the effect of the Inter-tropical Confluence Area (ITC) however, this extensive plain of the Colombian Caribbean, to be interrupted by the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta and framed by the Caribbean Sea and the Andean mountain ranges, it makes that big differences are presented in their climatic regime. In this study, climatic elements are analyzed in the region, such as the precipitation, the temperature and the relative humidity of the air, the radiation and the solar shine, the speed of the wind and the potential evapo-perspiration, besides the calculation of the hydraulic balances, those which as integrative of the agriculture-climatic aspects, they serve as base to make the climatic classifications, to know the growth periods and to calculate the potential water demands, fundamental parameters in the planning of the agricultural activities. With these results they stand out the diverse climates in the region, represented in climatic areas from arid until per-humid offer a wide range for the requirements of the different species that are used in the agricultural exploitations

    Role-based sexual identities structure male same-sex partnerships and influence HIV/STI epidemiology among MSM in Latin America. We explored shifting relationships between sexual roles, identities and practices among MSM in Lima, Peru, and implications for HIV/STI prevention. Patterns of HIV/STI epidemiology reflected differential risks for transmission within role-based partnerships with relatively low prevalences of HIV, syphilis, and HSV-2 but higher prevalences of urethral gonorrhea/chlamydia among activo MSM compared with moderno and pasivo participants. Qualitative analysis of how MSM in Peru integrate sexual identities, roles, and practices identified four key themes: pasivo role as a gay approximation of cultural femininity; activo role as a heterosexual consolidation of masculinity; moderno role as a masculine reconceptualization of gay identity; and role-based identities as social determinants of partnership, network, and community formation. The concept of role-based sexual identities provides a framework for HIV prevention for Latin American MSM that integrates sexual identities, practices, partnerships, and networks.

    Improvement in nutrient recycling in agriculture is essential to maintain food production while minimising nutrient pollution of the environment. For this purpose, understanding and modelling nutrient cycles in food and related agro-industrial systems is a crucial task. Although nutrient management has been addressed at the plot and farm scales for many years now in the agricultural sciences, there is a need to upscale these approaches to capture the additional drivers of nutrient cycles that may occur at the local, i.e. district, scale. Industrial ecology principles provide sound bases to analyse nutrient cycling in complex systems. However, since agro-food social-ecological systems have specific ecological and social dimensions, we argue that a new field, referred to as "Agro-Industrial Ecology", is needed to study these systems. In this paper, we review the literature on nutrient cycling in complex social-ecological systems that can provide a basis for Agro-Industrial Ecology. We identify and describe three major approaches: Environmental Assessment tools, Stock and Flow Analysis methods and Agent-based models. We then discuss their advantages and drawbacks for assessing and modelling nutrient cycles in agro-food systems in terms of their purpose and scope, object representation and time-spatial dynamics. We finally argue that combining stock-flow methods with both agent-based models and environmental impact assessment tools is a promising way to analyse the role of economic agents on nutrient flows and losses and to explore scenarios that better close the nutrient cycles at the local scale.

    Full Text Available Due to the increasing size of the population, society faces several challenges for sustainable and adequate agricultural production, quality, distribution, and food safety in the strategic project portfolio selection (SPPS. The initial adaptation of strategic portfolio management of genetically modified (GM Agro by-products (Ab-Ps is a huge challenge in terms of processing the agro food product supply-chain practices in an environmentally nonthreatening way. As a solution to the challenges, the socio-economic characteristics for SPPS of GM food purchasing scenarios are studied. Evaluation and selection of the GM agro portfolio management are the dynamic issues due to physical and immaterial criteria involving a hybrid multiple criteria decision making (MCDM approach, combining modified grey Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL, Multi-Attributive Border Approximation area Comparison (MABAC and sensitivity analysis. Evaluation criteria are grouped into social, differential and beneficial clusters, and the modified DEMATEL procedure is used to derive the criteria weights. The MABAC method is applied to rank the strategic project portfolios according to the aggregated preferences of decision makers (DMs. The usefulness of the proposed research framework is validated with a case study. The GM by-products are found to be the best portfolio. Moreover, this framework can unify the policies of agro technological improvement, corporate social responsibility (CSR and agro export promotion.

In the dialectic relationship between the rural environment and agro-industry, field workers (called integrated/associated workers are constantly being qualified/disqualified in order to serve the interests of the (reproduction of capital imposed by the agro-industrial complex and to meet international market requirements. While workers are being qualified/disqualified, they experience contradictory and confrontational processes in the social relations of production. Thus, understanding how integrated/cooperative families and agro-industry workers are educated to serve the interests of western Paraná’s agro-industrial capital is the general objective of this study. The study area comprises western Paraná, which is characterized by a strong agro-industrial presence in addition to significant trade and service sectors (which are partially focused on serving agroindustry demands. The research covers the period 1960–2010, which was exemplified by profound changes in the rural environment resulting from productive restructuring between capital and labor.

    Full Text Available This work is a literature review on democracy. Firstly, a short historical retrospect of democracy is carried out. This retrospect is important because democracy had links with the citizen’s direct participation in the decision-making. The modern democracy, on its turn, is related to the political representation, where the citizen participates through mechanisms developed by the State to elect its representatives. The main aspect is the crisis inherent in the current democratic system which needs an urgent review process. It is on the crisis established on democracy that the old as well as the modern democracy establish convergence points, for mechanisms of direct participation are being thought and blended together with the modern democracy, with the purpose of recreating the current political system.O presente trabalho se caracteriza como uma revisão de literatura sobre o tema democracia. Para a consecução da revisão, buscou-se expor no primeiro momento a realização de um breve retrospecto histórico da democracia. Esse retrospecto é importante porque a democracia possuía vínculos com a participação direta do cidadão nas tomadas de decisão. A democracia dos modernos por sua vez, se relacionada com a representação política, onde o cidadão participa por meio de mecanismos criados pelo Estado para eleger os seus representantes. O ponto nevrálgico e que marca sobretudo os aspectos relacionados a esta revisão de literatura é a crise inerente do sistema democrático em voga e que necessita sobremaneira de um processo de revisão. A crise da democracia conduz ao estabelecimento de pontos de convergência entre a democracia dos antigos e a democracia dos modernos mecanismos de participação direta estão sendo pensados e mesclados junto à democracia dos modernos com o intuito de recriar o sistema político vigente.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Compound words, the vast majority of the Modern Chinese lexicon, are formed by characters and can be analyzed morphologically and semantically, which facilitates lexical inference as a vocabulary learning method. Nevertheless, in the teaching of Chinese as a foreign language, this method goes unrecognized, due to the lack of explanation of either the meanings of the characters or the rules of compound word formation. This work reveals this problem and studies the method from morphological, lexematic and didactic perspectives, demonstrating its viability and efficacy and putting forward suggestions for its teaching.

    Ecosystem Services within an Agro- Ecosystem Agricultural ecosystems produce food, fiber, and nonmarketed ecosystem services (ES). Agriculture also typically involves high negative external costs associated with, for example, fossil fuel use. We estimated, via fieldscale ecological monitoring...... and economic value-transfer methods, the market and nonmarket ES value of a combined food and energy (CFE) agro-ecosystem that simultaneously produces food, fodder, and bioenergy. Such novel CFE agro-ecosystems can provide a significantly increased net crop, energy, and nonmarketed ES compared...... with conventional agriculture, and require markedly less fossil-based inputs. Extrapolated to the European scale, the value of nonmarket ES from the CFE system exceeds current European farm subsidy payments. Such integrated food and bioenergy systems can thus provide environmental value for money for European Union...

    Full Text Available Knowledge based economy, found in more than one fields, started – considering agriculture – from a transition premise towards sustainable agro-food systems. The conceptual boundaries between the two major paradigms on sustainable development of agriculture, namely the agro-industrial paradigm and the integrated territorial paradigm, is used nowadays for teaching and research purpose, as a comparison basis with an ideal case, mostly because we only have hybrid models which tend to coexist, always improving the food and goods production, also promoting innovative agro-food systems. This paper highlights the idea that the establishment of an institutional and legal framework, will have a catalytic role acting as an engine of economic growth and boosting the development of agricultural systems by mobilizing entrepreneurs in agriculture and related areas. In this regard, we present best practices of economic actors engaged in meta network of agriculture clusters.

A partir de las definiciones de "arte tradicional" propuestas por diversos autores, se establecen lineamientos teóricos generales para analizar de manera concreta las formas particulares en las que, en diversas culturas, el arte se sitúa al interior de un conjunto de prácticas sociales dentro de complejos mítico-rituales dominados por lo sagrado. Se abordan, en particular, los casos de las culturas prehispánicas del área mesoamericana y el ejemplo de la cultura yoruba de Nigeria. Se desarrolla, asimismo, un esbozo de la génesis del concepto moderno de arte de la Grecia clásica a los orígenes de la modernidad en el Renacimiento, destacando las consecuencias de la secularización del arte moderno y de las formas de ruptura y confrontación entre los conceptos sagrado y profano de arte.

Mediante una revisión bibliográfica, limitada a autores clásicos y contemporáneos que han abordado la experiencia europea, se estudió la tendencia de los militares hacia la autonomía, teniendo en cuenta los procesos de formación del Estado y del Estado-nación en el mundo occidental moderno. Como resultado, se encontró que la formación del Estado-nación moderno fue un efecto inesperado del proceso de civilización, que sustrajo la violencia de la sociedad, limitándola a las barracas, a organizaciones como las Fuerzas Militares y la Policía, y que dio lugar también a la creación de instituciones orientadas a mejorar las condiciones de vida de los ciudadanos.

    Full Text Available Agricultural oasis expansion and intensive management practices have occurred in arid and semiarid regions of China during the last few decades. Accordingly, regional carbon and water budgets have been profoundly impacted by agroecosystems in these regions. Therefore, study on the methods used to accurately estimate energy, water, and carbon exchanges is becoming increasingly important. Process-based models can represent the complex processes between land and atmosphere among agricultural ecosystems. However, before the models can be applied they must be validated under different environmental and climatic conditions. In this study, a process-based agricultural ecosystem model (Agro-IBIS was validated for maize crops using 3 years of soil and biometric measurements at Wulanwusu agrometeorological site (WAS located in the Shihezi oasis in Xinjiang, northwest China. The model satisfactorily represented leaf area index (LAI during the growing season, simulating its peak values within the magnitude of 0–10%. The total biomass carbon was overestimated by 15%, 8%, and 16% in 2004, 2005, and 2006, respectively. The model satisfactorily simulated the soil temperature (0–10 cm and volumetric water content (VWC (0–25 cm of farmland during the growing season. However, it overestimated soil temperature approximately by 4 °C and VWC by 15–30% during the winter, coinciding with the period of no vegetation cover in Xinjiang. Overall, the results indicate that the model could represent crop growth, and seems to be applicable in multiple sites in arid oases agroecosystems of Xinjiang. Future application of the model will impose more comprehensive validation using eddy covariance flux data, and consider including dynamics of crop residue and improving characterization of the final stage of leaf development.

    The continuous increment of frequencies and doses of pesticides, glyphosate and fertilizers, the deterioration of the structure, biotic balance and fertility of soils and the ground water pollution are characteristics of the current Argentinian agricultural model. In this context, agro-ecological innovations are needed to develop a real sustainable agriculture, enhancing the food supply. Precision agriculture technologies can strengthen the expansion of agro-ecological farming in experimental farm fields. The aim of this study was to propose a soil-specific agro-ecological strategy for sustainable production at field scale focused on the use of soil sensors and digital soil mapping techniques. This strategy has been developed in 15 hectares transition agro-ecological farm field, located at Barrow Experimental Station (Lat:-38.322844, Lon:-60.25572) Argentina. The strategy included five steps: (i) to measure apparent electrical conductivity (ECa) and elevation within agro-ecological farm field; (ii) to apply a clustering method using MULTISPATI-PCA algorithm to delimitate three soil-specific zones (Z1, Z2 and Z3); (iii) to determine three soil sampling points by zone, using conditioned Latin hypercube method, in addition to elevation and ECa as auxiliary information; (iv) to collect soil samples at 2-10 cm depth in each point and to determine in laboratory: total organic carbon content (TOC), cation-exchange capacity (CEC), pH and phosphorus availability (P-Bray). In addition, soil bulk density (SBD) was measured at 0-20 cm depth. Finally, (v) according to each soil-specific zone, a management strategy was recommended. Important differences in soil properties among zones could suggest that the strategy developed was able to apply an agro ecological soil-specific practice management. pH and P-Bray were significantly (pfertilizer and also rotating plots with high stocking rate.

    Full Text Available Este artigo discute a patologização dos lares brasileiros como estratégia dos publicitários e anunciantes para convencer as donas de casa de que a solução dos problemas com insetos era o consumo de produtos industrializados. Eletrodomésticos, inseticidas e produtos de limpeza eram oferecidos como capazes de transformar as casas “doentes” em ambientes higiênicos e saudáveis. Nos anos de 1940 a 1960, o Brasil buscava consolidar seu parque industrial e seu mercado consumidor, o que tornava necessário substituir as soluções caseiras e tradicionais por produtos ditos modernos. O argumento deste trabalho é que essa oferta de soluções modernas para os problemas de manutenção de um lar salubre encontrou uma cultura da higiene já estabelecida nas classes médias urbanas brasileiras.

This process continued during the eighteenth century and became firmly established during the final crisis of the «Ancien Régime».

    Full Text Available Se abordan algunos de los conceptos clave de la obra de Giorgio Agamben concernientes a su análisis del poder político en Occidente y su vinculación con la vida biológica (z¿¿. A partir del análisis foucaultiano en torno al biopoder, Agamben extiende dicho concepto más allá del mundo moderno, identificando el poder político occidental desde sus comienzos -en la polis griega- con un movimiento de exclusión incluyente de la vida biológica en el ámbito de la vida política y la ley. Las consecuencias de esta particular relación entre vida y ley nos obligan a replantear los conceptos tradicionales de soberanía, gobierno y comunidad, entre muchos otros. En particular para Agamben, desde los inicios de la civilización occidental, la fuente de la soberanía del poder político se encuentra en un doble movimiento que permite al mismo tiempo excluir la vida biológica de la ley, al tiempo que la introduce a través del estado de excepción.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The present paper is aiming to provide an actual state of the development of non autoclaved Agro-Industrial aerated concrete by using multiple ashes as improvement of thermal behavior for building. The feasibility of Agro-Industrial wastes as lightweight concrete by utilizing the Palm Oil Fuel Ash (POFA as binder replacement and bottom ash as fine aggregate was investigated in this paper. Portland cement, bottom ash, aluminum powder and lime (Ca(OH2 were used in this study. The POFA was used to replace Portland cement and Hydrated Lime at 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% by weight and aluminum powder was added at 0.75% dry weight in order to form bubbles. The compressive strength, water absorption, porosity and the thermal conductivity test were carried out after the concrete were water cured for 7 days and later being exposed to the air and water until 28days. The results show that the 20% replacements give the optimum strength of 7.143MPa and 30% give the best thermal conductivity with 0.48W/mK. Hence, this study aim, was to develop an agro-industrial aerated concrete good in insulation but having an optimum strength. Hence, it has been found that the more the percentage of POFA is added the lower the thermal conductivity since the pore structure is increasing and by the optimization done, 30% replacement has been chosen as the best mix design for Agro-Industrial Aerated Concrete.

    The use of life cycle assessment (LCA) as a sustainability assessment tool for agro-bioenergy system usually has an industrial agriculture bias. Furthermore, LCA generally has often been criticized for being a decision maker tool which may not consider decision takers perceptions. They are lacking in spatial and temporal depth, and unable to assess sufficiently some environmental impact categories such as biodiversity, land use etc. and most economic and social impact categories, e.g. food security, water security, energy security. This study explored tools, methodologies and frameworks that can be deployed individually, as well as in combination with each other for bridging these methodological gaps in application to agro-bioenergy systems. Integrating agronomic options, e.g. alternative farm power, tillage, seed sowing options, fertilizer, pesticide, irrigation into the boundaries of LCAs for agro-bioenergy systems will not only provide an alternative agro-ecological perspective to previous LCAs, but will also lead to the derivation of indicators for assessment of some social and economic impact categories. Deploying life cycle thinking approaches such as energy return on energy invested-EROEI, human appropriation of net primary production-HANPP, net greenhouse gas or carbon balance-NCB, water footprint individually and in combination with each other will also lead to further derivation of indicators suitable for assessing relevant environmental, social and economic impact categories. Also, applying spatio-temporal simulation models has a potential for improving the spatial and temporal depths of LCA analysis.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available There is a blossoming of voluntary certification initiatives for sustainable agro-food products and production processes. With these certification initiatives come traceability in supply chains, to guarantee the sustainability of the products consumed. No systematic analysis exists of traceability systems for sustainability in agro-food supply chains. Hence, the purpose of this article is to analyze the prevalence of four different traceability systems to guarantee sustainability; to identify the factors that determine the kind of traceability systems applied in particular supply chains; and to assess what the emergence of economic and market logics in traceability mean for sustainability. Two conclusions are drawn. Globalizing markets for sustainable agro-food products induces the emergence of book-and-claim traceability systems, but the other three systems (identity preservation, segregation and mass balance will continue to exist as different factors drive traceability requirements in different supply chains. Secondly, traceability itself is becoming a market driven by economic and market logics, and this may have consequences for sustainability in agro-food supply chains in the future.

    Full Text Available Deforestation in North Korea is becoming the epitome of the environmental change occurring in the Korean Peninsula. This study estimates the agro-environmental variables of North Korea’s croplands and analyzes the impact of deforestation using the GEPIC (GIS-based EPIC (Environmental Policy Integrated Climate model and time-series land cover maps. To identify the changes in agricultural quality under deforestation, wind erosion, water erosion, organic carbon loss, and runoff were selected as the agro-environmental variables having an impact on cropland stability and productivity. Land cover maps spanning the past three decades showed that 75% of the forests were converted to croplands and that 69% of all converted croplands were originally forests, confirming the significant correlation between deforestation and cropland expansion in North Korea. Despite limitations in the verification data, we conducted qualitative and quantitative validation of the estimated variables and confirmed that our results were reasonable. Over the past 30 years, agro-environmental variables showed no clear time-series changes resulting from climate change, but changes due to spatial differences were seen. Negative changes in organic carbon loss, water erosion, and runoff were observed, regardless of the crop type. On newly-converted agricultural lands, runoff is 1.5 times higher and water-driven erosion and soil organic loss are more than twice as high compared to older croplands. The results showed that the agro-environment affected by deforestation had an impact on cropland stability and productivity.

    Full Text Available Agro-entrepreneurs are key to the Nigerian economy as they constitute the majority of the work force, providing food and employment opportunities for more than 60% of the largest black nation on earth. Nigeria’s social media networking system which is the largest in Africa has got its usefulness in many conventional and contemporary applications in the recent times. Social media has become the fastest, cheapest and unrestricted communication and marketing tool of this jet age. This study therefore focused on the use and use intensity of social media networking systems by Nigerian agro-entrepreneurs. The study made use of mainly primary data. Primary data were collected with the aid of well-structured questionnaires assisted with interview schedules. Field data collection was conducted between June and September, 2014. Multi-stage sampling technique was used to select three hundred and sixty (360 respondents across the three (3 highly ICT compliant states (Lagos, Ondo and Oyo. Data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics and multiple regression model. The results of the regression model indicate that education, availability of power supply and customer base of the agro-entrepreneurs positively influenced use intensity of social media by the agro-entrepreneurs while age and cost of access data negatively influenced their use intensity of social media.

    2015-12-01

    Drowning in data and starving for knowledge, agricultural decision makers require evidence-based information to enlighten sustainable intensification. The agro-ecological footprint of the Cook Agronomy Farm (CAF) Long-Term Agro-ecosystem Research (LTAR) site is embedded within 9.4 million ha of diverse land uses primarily cropland (2.9 million ha) and rangeland (5.3 million ha) that span a wide annual precipitation gradient (150 mm through 1400 mm) with diverse social and natural capital (see Figure). Sustainable intensification hinges on the development and adoption of precision agro-ecological practices that rely on meaningful spatio-temporal data relevant to land use decisions at within-field to regional scales. Specifically, the CAF LTAR will provide the scientific foundation (socio-economical and bio-physical) for enhancing decision support for precision and conservation agriculture and synergistic cropping system intensification and diversification. Long- and short-term perspectives that recognize and assess trade-offs in ecosystem services inherent in any land use decision will be considered so as to promote the development of more sustainable agricultural systems. Presented will be current and future CAF LTAR research efforts required for the development of sustainable agricultural systems including cropping system cycles and flows of nutrients, water, carbon, greenhouse gases and other biotic and abiotic factors. Evaluation criteria and metrics associated with long-term agro-ecosystem provisioning, supporting, and regulating services will be emphasized.

    2014-02-15

    With the globalisation of agro-product markets and convenient transportation of food across countries and continents, the potential for distribution of mis-labelled products increases accordingly, highlighting the need for measures to identify the origin of food. High quality food with identified geographic origin is a concern not only for consumers, but also for agriculture farmers, retailers and administrative authorities. Currently, stable isotope ratio analysis in combination with other chemical methods gradually becomes a promising approach for agro-product authenticity and traceability. In the last five years, a growing number of research papers have been published on tracing agro-products by stable isotope ratio analysis and techniques combining with other instruments. In these reports, the global variety of stable isotope compositions has been investigated, including light elements such as C, N, H, O and S, and heavy isotopes variation such as Sr and B. Several factors also have been considered, including the latitude, altitude, evaporation and climate conditions. In the present paper, an overview is provided on the authenticity and traceability of the agro-products from both animal and plant sources by stable isotope ratio analysis.

    Marketing distribution is an important of the strategy in business development in agroindustries. The aim of the research was to introduce marketing (distribution pattern, margin and marketing efficiency) at the salted egg agro industries in Brebes Regency. Survey method had been conducted on 52 salted egg agro industries which had active PIRT certificate. The data collection was conducted by means of interview and observation. Descriptive analysis was used to determine the marketing distribution of salted eggs. Marketing efficiency was obtained by calculating marketing margin and farmer share. The results show that the salted egg agro industries implemented two marketing distribution patterns; direct marketing pattern (consumer→producers) and indirect marketing pattern (producer→retailer→consumer). The number of the salted egg agro industries which apply indirect marketing pattern is 57.69%. The implementation of direct and indirect marketing patterns was classified as efficient according to the farmer’s share values of 87.13% and 78.21%. It can be recommended the direct marketing.

  18. Risk Assessment of Maize Drought Disaster in Agro-Pastoral Transitional Zone in North China

    Jia, H.; Pan, D.

    2017-12-01

    Agricultural drought is one of the focuses of global concern and one of the natural disasters that affect the agriculture production mostly in China. Farming-pastoral zones in China are located in the monsoon fringe area, precipitation of which is extremely unstable, and drought occurs frequently. The agro-pastoral transitional zone in North China is one of the main producing areas of northern spring maize in northern China, and maize is the second largest grain crop in the region. An assessment of the risk of drought disaster in this region is therefore important in ensuring a reduction in such disasters and an increase in food security. A risk assessment model, EPIC (Environmental Policy Integrated Climate) model, for maize drought disasters based on the Erosion Productivity Impact Calculator crop model is proposed for areas with the topographic characteristics of agro-pastoral transitional zone in North China. The results showed that the hazard risk level for the maize zone of agro-pastoral transitional zone in North China is generally high. Most hazard index values were between 0.4 and 0.5, accounting for 48.77% of total study area.

    This multidisciplinary study investigates agro-ecological functions (nature conservation, agriculture, environment) and implications of newly created, mown sown and unsown field margin strips installed on ex-arable land to increase biodiversity. From conservational concern, the development of species rich field margin strips was not strongly affected by the installed type of margin strip since species diversity converged over time, whether strips were sown or not. Convergence between unsown and sown margin strips occurred also in terms of species composition: unsown and sown strips became similar over time. Mowing without removal of cuttings significantly reduced species richness, yielded more grassy margin strips and delayed similarity in species composition between sown and unsown margin strips. Species richness on the longer term was not significantly affected by light regime nor by disturbance despite significant temporary effects shortly after the disturbance event. On the contrary vegetation composition in terms of importance of functional groups changed after disturbance: the share of spontaneous species within functional groups increased resulting in higher similarity between the sown and unsown vegetation. Furthermore risk of invasion was highest in the disturbed unsown community on the unshaded side of a tree lane. A positive effect of botanical diversity on insect number and diversity was found. However the effects of botanical diversity on insect number was mediated by light regime. At high light availability differences between plant communities were more pronounced compared to low light availablilty. The abundance of some insect families was dependent on the vegetation composition. Furthermore light availability significantly influenced insect diversity as well as the spatial distribution of families. From agricultural concern, installing margin strips by sowing a species mixture and a mowing regime with removal of cuttings are good practices to

    Full Text Available Pure Aluminium and its alloy are widely utilized in Engineering and Industrial applications due to certain significant properties such as softness, ductility, corrosion resistance, and high electrical conductivity which it possesses. Addition of an agro-waste based grain refiner to the melt can alter the characteristics positively or negatively. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to investigate the inoculating capability of an agro-waste based inoculant and the effect of adding varying sizes of its grains on some of the properties of pure aluminium after solidification. The beneficial outcome of this investigation would enhance the economic value of the selected agro-waste and also broaden the applications of aluminium in Engineering. The assessed properties include; microstructure, micro hardness, ductility, and tensile strength. The agro-waste used as the grain refiner is pulverised cocoa bean shells (CBS. Three sets of test samples were produced using dry sand moulding process, with each melt having a specified grain size of the inoculant added to it (150, 225 and 300microns respectively. Ladle inoculation method was adopted. The cast samples after solidification were machined to obtain various shapes/sizes for the different analysis. The microstructural examination showed that the mechanical properties are dependent on the matrix as the aluminium grains became more refined with increasing grain size of the inoculant. I.e. Due to increasing grain size of the inoculant, the micro hardness increased (56, 61, 72HB as the aluminium crystal size became finer. Meanwhile, the tensile strength (284, 251, 223N/mm2 and ductility (1.82, 0.91, 0.45%E decreased as grain size of the inoculant increased. The overall results showed that the used agro-waste based inoculant has the capability of refining the crystal size of pure aluminium as its grain size increases. This will make the resulting aluminium alloy applicable in areas where hardness is of

Es el caso que el monje agustino Gregorio Juan Mendel, no hallando suficiente la hipótesis de la selección natural para explicar la aparición de nuevas especies, emprendió una serie de investigaciones acerca del cruzamiento de los Guisantes. De común acuerdo los investigadores resolvieron dar el nombre de Mendelismo a las nuevas doctrinas sobre la herencia, doctrinas que fueron bien pronto confirmadas y ampliadas por los mismos biologistas y, por Bateson, de Cambridge, por Cuenot, en Francia, y por muchos, experimentadores más, quienes han impulsado el moderno desarrollo de la herencia y le han dado el rango de una ciencia experimental y de trascendencia, económica e industrial".

    The Domizio-Flegreo Littoral and Agro Aversano area has been classified by the Italian Ministry of Environment (Italian Ministero dell'Ambiente e della Tutela del Territorio e del Mare) as a S.I.N. (Sito di Interesse Nazionale, L. 426/98 - Decreto 10 Gennaio 2000 - G.U. 29/5/01). In this category have been included all those contaminated lands that, both for their extension and their historical and present land use, are considered to be particularly harmful for human health. In Italy have been selected a total of 54 S.I.N.; among all of these, the Domizio-Flegreo Littoral and Agro Aversano S.I.N. is one of the widest (1564 Km2). The study area is located in north-western Campania region, from the Avella Mountain to the coastline, and from the Campi Flegrei area to the northern boundaries between Campania and Latium Regions. It includes a total of 77 towns from both Naples and Caserta provinces. The Domizio-Flegreo Littoral and Agro Aversano S.I.N. is characterized by a strongly urbanization in its internal portions, and by intensive agricultural activities in its northern and coastal portions. During past years this wide area has been the set of an unknown number of illegal activities controlled by the organized crime, including toxic waste disposal of unknown sources from different Regions of Italy, unauthorized building, intensive uncontrolled agricultural practices and so on. Part of these environmental crimes have been and are under investigations by Italian Authorities. For a geochemical characterization of this contaminated land, between May 2006 and January 2008, a total of 292 (179 in the Litorale Domizio-Flegreo and 113 in the Agro Aversano) top soils (5-15 cm depth) have been collected, with a sampling density of about 1 sample/5 Km2.

    The East-African agro-industries generate very large quantities of organic residues from production and processing of different crops. These residues form a major contribution to the pollution of air, soil and water ways, but, at the same time they constitute a large potential for production of bioenergy through anaerobic digestion as well as potential substrate for other biological fermentation processes. The utilization of these resources for production of valuable products would contribute significantly to: Improvement of the local energy supply, through production of bio-energy; Improvement of the economy of the East African agro-industry; Reduction of the environmental impact from the agro-industrial sector. Except for production of cane sugar, most agro-industrial residues are generated from cash crops, which are produced and processed in the developing countries and where the final products mainly are used for export. In the East-African Region the most important of these crops are: Sisal, coffee, Cashew nuts and Pineapple. In addition significant quantities of organic residues are generated from other food processing activities like breweries, consumption of bananas etc. The total potential methane production of the residues available for use in biomethanization systems in East Africa is 189.61 million m{sup 3} of methane per year. Converted to diesel oil equivalents and including the residues only feasible for combustion systems, the total bioenergy potential of agro-industrial residues in Eastern Africa is 279,176 TOE. If this potential was fully utilized for production of electricity, it would correspond to installed effects of 37,68 and 31 MW in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, respectively, equivalent to 10%, 11% and 18% of the currently installed effect is these countries. Residues from sisal and coffee processing constitute the main part of the bioenergy potential, on average approximately 75%, while the remaining 25% of the potential are formed by the

    Highlights: • We used the methodological approach established by UNI EN ISO 14067 (2013). • We studied in detail an LCI of an agro-biogas supply chain located in Southern Italy. • Carbon sequestration was enabled by no-tillage practice in the investigated farm. • Low impacts were observed for transportation due to the short supply chain. • Environmental improvement was shown by reduction of the ammonium nitrate use. - Abstract: Over the last few years, agro-biogas has been receiving great attention since it enables replacement of natural gas, thereby representing a tool which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. In this context, this paper is aimed at the application of the Carbon Footprint (CF) to an agro-biogas supply chain (SC) in Southern Italy, according to ISO/TS 14067:2013, so as to calculate the related 100-year Global Warming Potential (GWP 100 ). The topic was addressed because agro-biogas SCs, though being acknowledged worldwide as sustainable ways to produce both electricity and heat, can be source of GHG emissions and therefore environmental assessments and improvements are needed. Additionally, the performed literature review highlighted deficiencies in PCF assessments, so this study could contribute to enriching the international knowledge on the environmental burdens associated with agro-biogas SCs. The analysis was conducted using a life-cycle approach, thus including in the assessment: functional unit choice, system border definition and inventory analysis development. The primary data needed was provided by a farm located in the province of Foggia (Apulia region in Southern Italy), already equipped with anaerobic digestion and cogeneration plant for biogas production and utilisation. Results from this study are in agreement with those found by some of the most relevant studies in the sector. Indeed, it was possible to observe that GWP 100 was almost entirely due to cropland farming and, in particular, to the

Data collected from respondents (n = 250 included information related to agro-seaweed, seaweed farming, and seaweed product marketing. Data collection included primary and secondary data sources, while the methods of analysis used structure model equations. We tested eight factors that influence the development of agro-seaweed industries in the southeast Maluku regency, namely, raw materials, human resources, technology, markets, infrastructure, policy, institutional, and capital, and concluded that all proposed hypotheses are proved correct because the value critical ratio ≥ 1.96, only the facilities and infrastructure factors were identified as significantly affecting the development of an agro-seaweed facility in southeast Maluku. We also found that optimal development of an agro-business in southeast Maluku will depend on relevant local government support and require cooperation between the internal local government, academia, the private sector, and the public. Development of human resources through formal and informal education programs directed at local business and focused on seaweed-based products will help to build business continuity by avoiding collusion and nepotism. Increased cooperation will also be required between government, employers, and the fishery community to monitor the sustainability and environmental impacts of the seaweed agro-industry in this region.

    Full Text Available The major agro-industrial effluents of sugarcane and starch industries pose a serious threat to surface waters. Their disposal in the River Nile around Cairo city transitionally affected the microbial load. In situ bacterial enrichment (50–180% was reported and gradually diminished downstream; the lateral not vertical effect of the effluent disposal was evident. Disposed effluents increased BOD and COD, and then progressively decreased downstream. Ammoniacal N was elevated, indicating active biological ammonification and in situ biodegradability of the effluents. In vitro, the nitrogen-fixing rhizobacteria Crysomonas luteola, Azospirillum spp., Azomonas spp. and K. pneumoniae successfully grew in batch cultures prepared from the crude effluents. This was supported by adequate growth parameters and organic matter decomposition. Therefore, such biodegradability of the tested agro-industrial effluents strongly recommends their use for microbial biomass necessary for the production of bio-preparates.

    Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.), a well-known member of family Zingiberaceae, is bestowed with number of medicinal properties which is because of the secondary metabolites, essential oil and oleoresin, it contains in its rhizome. The drug yielding potential is known to depend on agro-climatic conditions prevailing at the place cultivation. Present study deals with comparative transcriptome analysis of two sample of elite ginger variety Suprabha collected from two different agro-climatic zones of Odisha. Transcriptome assembly for both the samples was done using next generation sequencing methodology. The raw data of size 10.8 and 11.8 GB obtained from analysis of two rhizomes S1Z4 and S2Z5 collected from Bhubaneswar and Koraput and are available in NCBI accession number SAMN03761169 and SAMN03761176 respectively. We identified 60,452 and 54,748 transcripts using trinity tool respectively from ginger rhizome of S1Z4 and S2Z5. The transcript length varied from 300 bp to 15,213 bp and 8988 bp and N50 value of 1415 bp and 1334 bp respectively for S1Z4 and S2Z5. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first comparative transcriptome analysis of elite ginger cultivars Suprabha from two different agro-climatic conditions of Odisha, India which will help to understand the effect of agro-climatic conditions on differential expression of secondary metabolites.

    2016-12-05

    Agricultural ecosystems are composed of genetically depauperate populations of crop plants grown at a high density and over large spatial scales, with the regional composition of crop species changing little from year to year. These environments are highly conducive for the emergence and dissemination of pathogens. The uniform host populations facilitate the specialization of pathogens to particular crop cultivars and allow the build-up of large population sizes. Population genetic and genomic studies have shed light on the evolutionary mechanisms underlying speciation processes, adaptive evolution and long-distance dispersal of highly damaging pathogens in agro-ecosystems. These studies document the speed with which pathogens evolve to overcome crop resistance genes and pesticides. They also show that crop pathogens can be disseminated very quickly across and among continents through human activities. In this review, we discuss how the peculiar architecture of agro-ecosystems facilitates pathogen emergence, evolution and dispersal. We present four example pathosystems that illustrate both pathogen specialization and pathogen speciation, including different time frames for emergence and different mechanisms underlying the emergence process. Lastly, we argue for a re-design of agro-ecosystems that embraces the concept of dynamic diversity to improve their resilience to pathogens.

    di Vittorio, A. V.; Anderson, R. S.; Miller, N. L.; Running, S. W.

    2009-12-01

    Accurate, spatially gridded estimates of bioenergy crop yields require 1) biophysically accurate crop growth models and 2) careful parameterization of unavailable inputs to these models. To meet the first requirement we have added the capacity to simulate C4 perennial grass as a bioenergy crop to the Biome-BGC ecosystem model. This new model, hereafter referred to as Agro-BGC, includes enzyme driven C4 photosynthesis, individual live and dead leaf, stem, and root carbon/nitrogen pools, separate senescence and litter fall processes, fruit growth, optional annual seeding, flood irrigation, a growing degree day phenology with a killing frost option, and a disturbance handler that effectively simulates fertilization, harvest, fire, and incremental irrigation. There are four Agro-BGC vegetation parameters that are unavailable for Panicum virgatum (switchgrass), and to meet the second requirement we have optimized the model across multiple calibration sites to obtain representative values for these parameters. We have verified simulated switchgrass yields against observations at three non-calibration sites in IL. Agro-BGC simulates switchgrass growth and yield at harvest very well at a single site. Our results suggest that a multi-site optimization scheme would be adequate for producing regional-scale estimates of bioenergy crop yields on high spatial resolution grids.

  12. Agro-residues as Alternative for Xylanase Production by Filamentous Fungi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Adriana Knob

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Agro-industrial wastes are the most abundant renewable resource on earth and are available in large quantities. However, the disposal of these wastes presents an increasing environmental problem. Recently, there has been a great interest in the exploitation of these wastes as low-cost raw materials for the production of value-added compounds as microbial enzymes by submerged or solid-state fermentation systems. This review focuses on alternatives for xylanase production using agro-residues as substrates. In recent years, the interest in xylanase, which plays an important role in the breakdown of xylan, has markedly increased due to its wide variety of biotechnological applications. Among several agro-industrial residues that have been intensively investigated, many, such as wheat bran, wheat straw, and sugarcane bagasse, are suitable and result in high yields of xylanase, leading to low production costs. In addition, many relatively unexplored residues, such as oil palm wastes, sorghum straw, and coffee by-products, are some of the most promising substrates for xylanase production, requiring further assessment.

    2017-02-01

    Annual and monthly-based emission inventories in northern, central and north-eastern provinces in Thailand, where agriculture and related agro-industries are very intensive, were estimated to evaluate the contribution of agricultural activity, including crop residue burning, forest fires and related agro-industries on air quality monitored in corresponding provinces. The monthly-based emission inventories of air pollutants, or, particulate matter (PM), NOx and SO 2 , for various agricultural crops were estimated based on information on the level of production of typical crops: rice, corn, sugarcane, cassava, soybeans and potatoes using emission factors and other parameters related to country-specific values taking into account crop type and the local residue burning period. The estimated monthly emission inventory was compared with air monitoring data obtained at monitoring stations operated by the Pollution Control Department, Thailand (PCD) for validating the estimated emission inventory. The agro-industry that has the greatest impact on the regions being evaluated, is the sugar processing industry, which uses sugarcane as a raw material and its residue as fuel for the boiler. The backward trajectory analysis of the air mass arriving at the PCD station was calculated to confirm this influence. For the provinces being evaluated which are located in the upper northern, lower northern and northeast in Thailand, agricultural activities and forest fires were shown to be closely correlated to the ambient PM concentration while their contribution to the production of gaseous pollutants is much less.

    2004-10-01

    This report has provided the counterparts the knowledge and skills on the use of environmental isotope tracer technology for obtaining valuable information on agricultural non-point pollution source in agro-ecosystem. The contamination from agricultural watersheds has been brought into attention as a potential contaminant of streams and tributaries, since majority of them caused water quality degradation, eutrophication of reservoir and negative effect on agro-environment. To prevent the contamination from these watersheds, it is necessary to find out the source of the contamination. However, accurate contaminants outflows from various types of non-point sources have not yet been elucidated due to the fact that the extent of non-point source contaminants related to uncontrollable climatic events and irrigation conditions may differ greatly from place to place and year to year. The dominant use of isotopes in environmental ecosystem research in the last few decades has been to trace sources of waters and solutes. The environmental isotope tracer technology using stable isotopes such as oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur has extensively been used for tracing the fate of environmental pollutants and for identification of environmental pollutants sources in agro-ecosystems

    This work was carried out in Palmitas rural area of the municipality of Medellin, located between 1.400 and 3.100 m.a.s.l, with temperatures between 10 grades Celsius and 17 grades Celsius and an average precipitation of 2.400 mm./year. In this area an intensive production of vegetables exists, with a use and intensive handling of agro-chemistries. This situation generates problems in the economic development, environment and human health of the region inhabitants. The present research showed that a widespread ignorance exists on the agro-chemistries manipulation; with empiric preparations of mixtures, in the use of not recommended doses and frequencies; which is aggravated by the remiss attention to the technical recommendations, such as, label information, residuals disposition and containers, type of mixtures, and the use of elements for personal protection. This situation is increased by the ignorance on symptoms and handling of intoxications, for the high level of illiteracy, added to the indefiniteness of the basic information about the products. Equally it was found out that the participation of women and children in the processes of agro-chemistries application is exposing them to health problems. This problem is intimately related with cultural, social, economic and technical factors. It was also stated that the peasants of Palmitas use a wide range of toxic products, showing a preference for the fungicidal Maneb (Carbamato) and for the insecticide Dimetoato (Organo-phosphorate).

    Highlights: • Supercritical water gasification of various fruit wastes and agro-food residues. • Coconut shell had superior carbon content and calorific value due to high lignin. • Maximum H_2 yields at 600 °C with 1:10 biomass-to-water ratio, 45 min and 23–25 MPa. • High H_2 yields from coconut shell, bagasse and aloe vera rind with 2 wt% K_2CO_3. • High CH_4 yields from coconut shell with 2 wt% NaOH due to methanation reaction. - Abstract: Considerable amounts of fruit wastes and agro-food residues are generated worldwide as a result of food processing. Converting the bioactive components (e.g., carbohydrates, lipids, fats, cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) in food wastes to biofuels is a potential remediation approach. This study highlights the characterization and hydrothermal conversion of several fruit wastes and agro-food residues such as aloe vera rind, banana peel, coconut shell, lemon peel, orange peel, pineapple peel and sugarcane bagasse to hydrogen-rich syngas through supercritical water gasification. The agro-food wastes were gasified in supercritical water to study the impacts of temperature (400–600 °C), biomass-to-water ratio (1:5 and 1:10) and reaction time (15–45 min) at a pressure range of 23–25 MPa. The catalytic effects of NaOH and K_2CO_3 were also investigated to maximize the hydrogen yields and selectivity. The elevated temperature (600 °C), longer reaction time (45 min) and lower feed concentration (1:10 biomass-to-water ratio) were optimal for higher hydrogen yield (0.91 mmol/g) and total gas yield (5.5 mmol/g) from orange peel. However, coconut shell with 2 wt% K_2CO_3 at 600 °C and 1:10 biomass-to-water ratio for 45 min revealed superior hydrogen yield (4.8 mmol/g), hydrogen selectivity (45.8%) and total gas yield (15 mmol/g) with enhanced lower heating value of the gas product (1595 kJ/Nm"3). The overall findings suggest that supercritical water gasification of fruit wastes and agro-food residues could serve as

    Extreme weather events such as droughts, heat waves and rain storms are projected to increase both in frequency and magnitude with climate change. The research hypothesis of the MERINOVA project is that meteorological risks act as drivers of environmental innovation in agro-ecosystem management which is being tested using a chain of risk approach. The project comprises of five major parts that reflect the chain of risks: the hazard, its impact on different agro-ecosystems, vulnerability, risk management and risk communication. Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) theory was used to model annual maxima of meteorological variables based on a location-, scale- and shape-parameter that determine the center of the distribution, the deviation of the location-parameter and the upper tail decay, respectively. Spatial interpolation of GEV-derived return levels has yielded maps of temperature extremes, precipitation deficits and wet periods. The degree of temporal overlap between extreme weather conditions and sensitive periods in the agro-ecosystem was determined using a bio-physically based modelling framework that couples phenological models, a soil water balance, crop growth and environmental models. 20-year return values for frost, heat stress, drought, waterlogging and field access during different crop stages were related to arable yields. The spatial extent of vulnerability is developed on different layers of spatial information that include inter alia meteorology, soil-landscapes, crop cover and management. The level of vulnerability and resilience of an agro-ecosystem is also determined by risk management. The types of agricultural risk and their relative importance differ across sectors and farm types as elucidated by questionnaires and focus groups. Risk types are distinguished according to production, market, institutional, financial and liability risks. A portfolio of potential strategies was identified at farm, market and policy level. In conclusion, MERINOVA

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available La ri essione critica sul mito e sulle sue derive nel mondo moderno sono pre- senti in buona parte del pensiero benjaminiano. A cominciare dagli scritti di filosofia del linguaggio nei quali il mito biblico istituisce il fondamento ontologico della parola originaria, tra rifiuto della storia e messianismo, fino alle considerazioni sul diritto e sul concetto di destino nella società borghese. Ma è soprattutto nella critica letteraria che Benjamin espone le sue più brillanti intuizioni: dallo sprigionarsi delle forze primordiali della natura che, nelle Affinità elettive di Goethe, tra violenza del diritto e libertà etica, si impossessano dei personaggi, alla dialettica del “risveglio” con Proust e i surrealisti, e all’esperienza profonda della vie antérieur di Baudelaire. Così, senza mai distanziarsi dal radicamento della condizione storica del suo tempo e senza mai cadere in facile misticismo, Walter Benjamin ha acutamente ispezionato le tracce del mito nella modernità, auspicando con intelligenza la liberazione umana dalla schiavitù della barbarie contingenti.

  4. L’arte del paesaggio e la sua trasformazione

    Full Text Available Leggere il paesaggio significa capire la natura, la storia e la cultura di un luogo. Una lettura importante per recuperare i segni del passato, renderli visibili e accostarli a più recenti segni provenienti dalle nuove richieste di possibili trasformazioni. Le forme riconoscibili di un paesaggio rivelano pagine di una lunga storia, dalla tradizione alla modernità. Perché esso è moderno e antico allo stesso tempo. Il paesaggio esprime un’immagine di forme, una reazione sentimentale e allo stesso tempo un’esigenza d’astrazione. E’ categoria dell’oggetto e del soggetto. Dufrenne, in un secolo che sembrava avesse dimenticato la bellezza del paesaggio, aveva elogiato sin dal 1955 la percezione estetica della natura sottolineando una certa indistinzione del sensoriale e dell’affettivo. In generale si accenna a un’arte del paesaggio quando esso viene concepito e sentito in relazione allo sguardo pittorico, alla veduta, alla teatralizzazione della natura, alle suggestioni visive delle note di viaggio. Ma, se vogliamo veramente pensarlo come un’arte dell’origine, un’arte che precede i suoi riflessi nella riproduzione dell’arte figurativa, esso ci appare più ampiamente e profondamente unito a un insieme di aspetti che mettono in luce l’uomo tra natura, cultura, storia e mito. Quest’ultimo si fa poi strumento importantissimo nel cogliere e trasmettere il mistero, l’inesplicabile, l’invisibile. Il paesaggio è, allora, sia reale, un’arte fornita dal fare e dalla cultura di un popolo, sia mentale, legato alla rappresentazione e alla visione del mondo. Gli architetti e i paesaggisti che sono invitati a ridare dignità a un territorio degradato, o troppo alterato e manipolato, dovranno ricordarsi dell’interazione di queste due accezioni ed essere capaci di leggere e interpretare i segni della presenza dell’uomo e migliorare così l’aspetto dei luoghi.

    Full Text Available Soil organic carbon (SOC is an important and manageable property of soils that impacts on multiple ecosystem services through its effect on soil processes such as nitrogen (N cycling and soil physical properties. There is considerable interest in increasing SOC concentration in agro-ecosystems worldwide. In some agro-ecosystems, increased SOC has been found to enhance the provision of ecosystem services such as the provision of food. However, increased SOC may increase the environmental footprint of some agro-ecosystems, for example by increasing nitrous oxide emissions.

The authors give a full determination of the public-private partnership in Russia. The structure of existing agro-industrial clusters on the territory of the Russian Federation is studied. The article contains characteristics of the agro-industrial complex, which affect the low involvement of private investment. The state of the agro-industrial complex is analyzed, the main problems of applying public-private partnerships in the agro-industrial complex are revealed, and recommendations for improving the mechanism for applying public-private partnerships are given. The study highlights the main advantages of using the mechanism of public-private partnership, analyzes trends and prospects for using this mechanism. The scientific works of domestic and foreign scientists in the field of public-private partnership and agro-industrial complex became the methodological basis of scientific research. System analysis, a set of methods of economic and statistical analysis, methods of synthesis and analysis of economic information, a comparative method were used as the methods of research. The article concludes that it is necessary to use the mechanisms of public-private partnership in the agro-industrial complex of the Russian Federation regarding the need for significant investments in the industry to maintain competitiveness. It is necessary to use such forms of public-private partnership that will use financial and administrative resources of state authorities even at the initial stage of the project, and later private business will repay the share of the invested state funds, up to the privatization of the property complex. This form of cooperation will help reduce the risks of private investors and attract new investments in the agro-industrial complex of the Russian

    Full Text Available Este ensayo sugiere que cierta forma de pensamiento ha alcanzado una posición central en la filosofía política contemporánea —una combinación de liberalismo individualista y racionalismo instrumental—. Aeste pensamiento lo denomino modernismo imperial porque se basa en una interpretación concreta del compromiso moderno con la autonomía, sesgado hacia la hegemonía. Desde ese planteamiento se procura mostrar que ésta no es la única interpretación sostenible de la modernidad y que puede estar surgiendo una auto-comprensión normativa concreta de la modernidad europea que se diferencie del modernismo imperial. El texto intenta elucidar esta tesis en dos pasos. Primero, ofrece una comparación algo esquemática del pensamiento social y político en Europa y EE.UU., muestra los rasgos básicos del modernismo imperial e indica algunas razones —históricas y contingentes— de su predominio en EE.UU., pese a que sus fuentes estén en Europa. Dado que este paso muestra que el individualismo y el instrumentalismo son los rasgos clave del modernismo imperial, el segundo paso discutirá las consecuencias de una posible futura hegemonía de ese pensamiento explorando en particular cómo la cuestión de lo común se ha vuelto problemática en la filosofía política desde el ascenso del liberalismo individualista.

  12. Agro-food industry growth and obesity in China: what role for regulating food advertising and promotion and nutrition labelling?

    Hawkes, C

    2008-03-01

    Taking a food supply chain approach, this paper examines the regulation of food marketing and nutrition labelling as strategies to help combat obesity in China in an era of rapid agro-food industry growth. China is the largest food producer and consumer in the world. Since the early 1980s, the agro-food industry has undergone phenomenal expansion throughout the food supply chain, from agricultural production to trade, agro-food processing to food retailing, and from food service to advertising and promotion. This industry growth, alongside related socioeconomic changes and government policies, has encouraged a 'nutrition transition'. China's population, especially in urban areas, is now consuming significantly more energy from dietary fat, which is leading to higher rates of obesity. Regulation of food advertising and promotion and nutrition labelling has the potential to help prevent the further growth of obesity in China and encourage the agro-food industry to supplier healthier foods. Government legislation and guidance, as well as self-regulation and voluntary initiatives, are needed to reduce children's exposure to food advertising and promotion, and increase the effectiveness of nutrition labelling. Policies on food marketing and nutrition labelling should be adapted to the China context, and accompanied by further action throughout the food supply chain. Given China's unique characteristics and position in the world today, there is an opportunity for the government and the agro-food industry to lead the world by creating a balanced, health promoting model of complementary legislation and industry action.

    The rapid growth of agro-ecosystem has been the focus of "New Rural Construction" in China due to intensive energy consumption and environmental pollution in rural areas. As a kind of renewable energy, biogas is helpful for new energy development and plays an important role in the sustainable development of agro-ecosystem in China. To evaluate the effects of biogas on agro-ecosystem from a systematic angle, we discussed the status quo of household biogas and identified its main factors that may have impacts on agro-ecosystem. An indicator framework covering environmental, social and economic aspects was established to quantify the impacts exerted by biogas project on agro-ecosystem. A case study of Gongcheng was then conducted to evaluate the combined impact of biogas project using the proposed indicator framework. Results showed that there was a notable positive effect brought by the application of biogas, and the integrated benefit has been significantly improved by 60.36%, implying that biogas as a substitute energy source can promote the sustainable level of rural areas.

    Full Text Available Salsola kali is considered extremely valuable as an energy crop worldwide because it adapts easily to environments with strong abiotic stresses (hydric, saline and alkaline and produces large amounts of biomass in drylands. This species is categorized as an important weed in Argentina. The aim of this work was to design an agro-ecological zoning model for tumbleweed in Argentina, employing a Geography Information System. Based on the bioclimatic requirements for the species and the climatic data for Argentina (1981–2010 period, an agro-climatic suitability map was drawn. This map was superimposed on the saline and alkaline soil maps delineated by the Food and Agriculture Organization for dry climates, generating the agro-ecological zoning on a scale of 1 : 500 000. This zoning revealed very suitable and suitable cultivation areas on halomorphic soils. The potential growing areas extend from N of the Salta province (approximately 22° S to the Santa Cruz province (50° S. The use of tumbleweed on halomorphic soils under semi-arid to arid conditions, for the dual purpose of forage use and source of lignocellulosic material for bioenergy, could improve agricultural productivity in these lands. Furthermore, it could also contribute to their environmental sustainability, since the species can be used to reclaim saline soils over the years. Based on international bibliography, the authors outlined an agro-ecological zoning model. This model may be applied to any part of the world, using the agro-ecological limits presented here.

    The recent and forthcoming availability of high resolution satellite image series offers new opportunities in agro-hydrological research and modeling. We investigated the perspective offered by improving the crop growth dynamic simulation using the distributed agro-hydrological model, Topography based Nitrogen transfer and Transformation (TNT2), using LAI map series derived from 105 Formosat-2 (F2) images during the period 2006-2010. The TNT2 model (Beaujouan et al., 2002), calibrated with discharge and in-stream nitrate fluxes for the period 1985-2001, was tested on the 2006-2010 dataset (climate, land use, agricultural practices, discharge and nitrate fluxes at the outlet). A priori agricultural practices obtained from an extensive field survey such as seeding date, crop cultivar, and fertilizer amount were used as input variables. Continuous values of LAI as a function of cumulative daily temperature were obtained at the crop field level by fitting a double logistic equation against discrete satellite-derived LAI. Model predictions of LAI dynamics with a priori input parameters showed an temporal shift with observed LAI profiles irregularly distributed in space (between field crops) and time (between years). By re-setting seeding date at the crop field level, we proposed an optimization method to minimize efficiently this temporal shift and better fit the crop growth against the spatial observations as well as crop production. This optimization of simulated LAI has a negligible impact on water budget at the catchment scale (1 mm yr-1 in average) but a noticeable impact on in-stream nitrogen fluxes (around 12%) which is of interest considering nitrate stream contamination issues and TNT2 model objectives. This study demonstrates the contribution of forthcoming high spatial and temporal resolution products of Sentinel-2 satellite mission in improving agro-hydrological modeling by constraining the spatial representation of crop productivity.

    Human activity causes abrupt changes in resource availability across the landscape. In order to persist in human-altered landscapes organisms need to shift their habitat use accordingly. Little is known about the mechanisms by which whole communities persist in human-altered landscapes, including the role of complementary habitat use. We define complementary habitat use as the use of different habitats at different times by the same group of species during the course of their activity period. We hypothesize that complementary habitat use is a mechanism through which native bee species persist in human-altered landscapes. To test this idea, we studied wild bee communities in agro-natural landscapes and explored their community-level patterns of habitat and resource use over space and time. The study was conducted in six agro-natural landscapes in the eastern United States, each containing three main bee habitat types (natural habitat, agricultural fields, and old fields). Each of the three habitats exhibited a unique seasonal pattern in amount, diversity, and composition of floral resources, and together they created phenological complementarity in foraging resources for bees. Individual bee species as well as the bee community responded to these spatiotemporal patterns in floral availability and exhibited a parallel pattern of complementary habitat use. The majority of wild bee species, including all the main crop visitors, used fallow areas within crops early in the season, shifted to crops in mid-season, and used old-field habitats later in the season. The natural-forest habitat supported very limited number of bees, mostly visitors of non-crop plants. Old fields are thus an important feature in these arable landscapes for maintaining crop pollination services. Our study provides a detailed examination of how shifts in habitat and resource use may enable bees to persist in highly dynamic agro-natural landscapes, and points to the need for a broad cross

    Ecosystem models such AgroIBIS require detailed parameterizations of numerous vegetation traits related to leaf structure, biochemistry and photosynthetic capacity to properly assess plant carbon assimilation and yield response to environmental variability. In general, these traits are estimated from a limited number of field measurements or sourced from the literature, but rarely is the full observed range of variability in these traits utilized in modeling activities. In addition, pathogens and pests, such as the exotic soybean aphid (Aphis glycines), which affects photosynthetic pathways in soybean plants by feeding on phloem and sap, can potentially impact plant productivity and yields. Capturing plant responses to pest pressure in conjunction with environmental variability is of considerable interest to managers and the scientific community alike. In this research, we employed full-range (400-2500 nm) field and laboratory spectroscopy to rapidly characterize the leaf biochemical and physiological traits, namely foliar nitrogen, specific leaf area (SLA) and the maximum rate of RuBP carboxylation by the enzyme RuBisCo (Vcmax) in soybean plants, which experienced a broad range of environmental conditions and soybean aphid pressures. We utilized near-surface spectroscopic remote sensing measurements as a means to capture the spatial and temporal patterns of aphid impacts across broad aphid pressure levels. In addition, we used the spectroscopic data to generate a much larger dataset of key model parameters required by AgroIBIS than would be possible through traditional measurements of biochemistry and leaf-level gas exchange. The use of spectroscopic retrievals of soybean traits allowed us to better characterize the variability of plant responses associated with aphid pressure to more accurately model the likely impacts of soybean aphid on soybeans. Our next steps include the coupling of the information derived from our spectral measurements with the Agro

    Outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza have occurred and have been studied in a variety of ecological systems. However, differences in the spatial resolution, geographical extent, units of analysis and risk factors examined in these studies prevent their quantitative comparison. This study aimed to develop a high-resolution, comparative study of a common set of agro-environmental determinants of avian influenza viruses (AIV) in domestic poultry in four different environments: (1) lower-Northern Thailand, where H5N1 circulated in 2004–2005, (2) the Red River Delta in Vietnam, where H5N1 is circulating widely, (3) the Vietnam highlands, where sporadic H5N1 outbreaks have occurred, and (4) the Lake Alaotra region in Madagascar, which features remarkable similarities with Asian agro-ecosystems and where low pathogenic avian influenza viruses have been found. We analyzed H5N1 outbreak data in Thailand in parallel with serological data collected on the H5 subtype in Vietnam and on low pathogenic AIV in Madagascar. Several agro-environmental covariates were examined: poultry densities, landscape dominated by rice cultivation, proximity to a water body or major road, and human population density. Relationships between covariates and AIV circulation were explored using spatial generalized linear models. We found that AIV prevalence was negatively associated with distance to the closest water body in the Red River Delta, Vietnam highlands and Madagascar. We also found a positive association between AIV and duck density in the Vietnam highlands and Thailand, and with rice landscapes in Thailand and Madagascar. Our findings confirm the important role of wetlands-rice-ducks ecosystems in the epidemiology of AI in diverse settings. Variables influencing circulation of the H5 subtype in Southeast Asia played a similar role for low pathogenic AIV in Madagascar, indicating that this area may be at risk if a highly virulent strain is introduced.

    The accelerated growth of the population brings with it an increase in the generation of agro-industrial effluents. The inadequate discharge of these effluents significantly affects the quality of water resources. In this way, it becomes important to invest in treatment processes for agro-industrial effluents, particularly low-cost ones. In this context, the present study includes the design and construction of an UASB reactor and optimization of the anaerobic digestion treatment of the raw effluent from sweet chestnut production in the agro-industrial company Sortegel. The efficiency of the system was evaluated through the determination / monitoring of oxygen chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), total suspended solids (TSS), biogas production rate and quality (% methane). The reactor was fed for 25 weeks and operated under mesophilic conditions (temperature 30-40 °C). Different values were tested for the hydraulic retention time (HRT) and volumetric flow rate (VF): 0.66 days (VF=1509 L.m-3.d-1); 1.33 days (VF=755 L.m-3.d-1); 2.41 d days (VF=415 L.m-3.d-1). The average COD removal efficiency reached values of 69%, 82% and 75%, respectively, and simultaneously the associated BOD5 removal efficiency was 84%, 91% and 70%. As regards TSS, removal values were 78%, 94% and 63%. In addition, high methane production rates were obtained, between 2500 and 4800 L CH4.kg-1 COD removed d-1. For all the hydraulic retention times tested, high concentrations of methane in the biogas were recorded: 66-75%, 70% and 75% for HRT of 0.66, 1.33 and 2.41 days, respectively.

    Due to the rapid rates of urbanization occurring in many countries in the world, the importance of an efficient and effective solid waste management system and the utilization/reuse of waste are more critical than ever before, especially for agricultural residues and agro-based industrial by-products. Over the past decade, the amount of solid waste generated in Vietnam has been increasing steadily. Numbers are predicted to continue to increase as well. There is significant potential to use the large amount of wastes for biogas conversion processes and for further production of commercial energy. This paper presented starts with estimation and analysis of the amounts of organic waste, agricultural residues, and agro-based industrial by-products generated from food industrial processes using general data sources for Vietnam. A laboratory study examined the use of agro-based industrial by-products and agricultural residues from cassava, sweet potato, pineapple residues, organic wastes, manures as input materials for biogas production in the anaerobic process. This paper provided an overview of Vietnam as a country, as well as a general overview of the amount of organic waste generated in the country. It also discussed the fermentation tests that were conducted to find out the potential of biogas production from some residues. It was concluded that a significant portion of waste could be reused as an environmentally sound source of energy. The utilization of agricultural residues and industrial byproducts as input materials for biogas production will not only reduce the quantity of organic waste thrown into landfills, but also reduce the negative impact on the environment. 10 refs., 7 tabs., 7 figs.

    Full Text Available La energía potencial del agua presenta diferencias de un punto del suelo a otro; esas diferencias son las que originan el movimiento del agua de acuerdo a la tendencia universal de la materia en el sentido de moverse de donde la energía potencial es mayor a donde dicha energía es menor. En el suelo el agua en consecuencia se mueve hacia donde su energía decrece hasta lograr su estado de equilibrio. Se desprende entonces que la cantidad de energía potencial absoluta contenida en el agua, no es importante por sí misma, sino por su relación con la energía en diferentes lugares dentro del suelo. El concepto Potencial de agua del suelo es un criterio para esta energía.

    The effect of endosulfan on non-target fauna in a maize agro-ecosystem was studied in Zambia in 1994 and 1995. Endosulfan was well tolerated by a number of beneficial arthropods such as spiders, coccinelids, carabids and ants. Springtails were significantly reduced. However the effect was only transient and lasted for at most eight weeks. While endosulfan was effective against the target pest (stalk borers) it appeared to have no real effect on the soil inhabiting microorganisms. (author). 6 refs, 6 tabs

    Landscape heterogeneity is a common natural phenomenon but is seldom considered in current radiative transfer models for predicting the surface reflectance. This paper developed an explicit analytical Radiative Transfer model for heterogeneous Agro-Forestry scenarios (RTAF) by dividing the scenario into non-boundary regions and boundary regions. The scattering contribution of the non-boundary regions that are treated as homogeneous canopies can be estimated from the SAILH model, whereas that of the boundary regions with lengths, widths, canopy heights, and orientations of the field patches, is calculated based on the bidirectional gap probability by considering the interactions and mutual shadowing effects among different patches. The hot spot factor is extended for heterogeneous scenarios, the Hapke model for soil anisotropy is incorporated, and the contributions of the direct and diffuse radiation are separately calculated. The multi-angular airborne observations and the Discrete Anisotropic Radiative Transfer (DART) model simulations were used for validating and evaluating the RTAF model over an agro-forestry scenario in Heihe River Basin, China. It indicates that the RTAF model can accurately simulate the hemispherical-directional reflectance factors (HDRFs) of the heterogeneous agro-forestry scenario, with an RMSE of 0.0016 and 0.0179 in the red and near-infrared (NIR) bands, respectively. The RTAF model was compared with two widely used models, the dominant cover type (DCT) model and the spectral linear mixture (SLM) model, which either neglected the interactions and mutual shadowing effects between the shelterbets and crops, or did not account for the contribution of the shelterbets. Results suggest that the boundary effect can significantly influence the angular distribution of the HDRFs, and consequently enlarged the HDRF variations between the backward and forward directions in the principle plane. The RTAF model reduced the maximum relative error from 25

    Full Text Available Climate change has a strong influence on agro-forestry systems. Present estimations evisage that changes in climate patterns and extreme events connected to climate change will have greater impacts in the future. This paper seeks to illustrate the articulation of the problems concerning the economic evaluation of climate change, with particularly attention to open problems and future lines of research. Research on this topic, though using methods and approaches consolidated in the disciplines of resource economics and evaluation, still have several open problems, particularly in the field of multidisciplinary studies of the man-environmental relations, policy evaluation and development of decision support systems for decision makers.

    This study evaluates the economic consequences of hypothetical foot-and-mouth disease releases from the future National Bio and Agro Defense Facility in Manhattan, Kansas. Using an economic framework that estimates the impacts to agricultural firms and consumers, quantifies costs to non-agricultural activities in the epidemiologically impacted region, and assesses costs of response to the government, we find the distribution of economic impacts to be very significant. Furthermore, agricultural firms and consumers bear most of the impacts followed by the government and the regional non-agricultural firms. PMID:26114546

    Agro-Land Surface Models (agro-LSM) have been developed from the coupling of specific crop models and large-scale generic vegetation models. They aim at accounting for the spatial distribution and variability of energy, water and carbon fluxes within soil-vegetation-atmosphere continuum with a particular emphasis on how crop phenology and agricultural management practice influence the turbulent fluxes exchanged with the atmosphere, and the underlying water and carbon pools. A part of the uncertainty in these models is related to the many parameters included in the models' equations. In this study, we quantify the parameter-based uncertainty in the simulation of sugar cane biomass production with the agro-LSM ORCHIDEE-STICS on a multi-regional approach with data from sites in Australia, La Reunion and Brazil. First, the main source of uncertainty for the output variables NPP, GPP, and sensible heat flux (SH) is determined through a screening of the main parameters of the model on a multi-site basis leading to the selection of a subset of most sensitive parameters causing most of the uncertainty. In a second step, a sensitivity analysis is carried out on the parameters selected from the screening analysis at a regional scale. For this, a Monte-Carlo sampling method associated with the calculation of Partial Ranked Correlation Coefficients is used. First, we quantify the sensitivity of the output variables to individual input parameters on a regional scale for two regions of intensive sugar cane cultivation in Australia and Brazil. Then, we quantify the overall uncertainty in the simulation's outputs propagated from the uncertainty in the input parameters. Seven parameters are identified by the screening procedure as driving most of the uncertainty in the agro-LSM ORCHIDEE-STICS model output at all sites. These parameters control photosynthesis (optimal temperature of photosynthesis, optimal carboxylation rate), radiation interception (extinction coefficient), root

    The BELSPO funded project 'MERINOVA' deals with risks associated with extreme weather phenomena and with risks of biological origin such as pests and diseases. The major objectives of the proposed project are to characterise extreme meteorological events, assess the impact on Belgian agro-ecosystems, characterise their vulnerability and resilience to these events, and explore innovative adaptation options to agricultural risk management. The project comprises of five major parts that reflect the chain of risks: (i) Hazard: Assessing the likely frequency and magnitude of extreme meteorological events by means of probability density functions; (ii) Impact: Analysing the potential bio-physical and socio-economic impact of extreme weather events on agro-ecosystems in Belgium using process-based modelling techniques commensurate with the regional scale; (iii) Vulnerability: Identifying the most vulnerable agro-ecosystems using fuzzy multi-criteria and spatial analysis; (iv) Risk Management: Uncovering innovative risk management and adaptation options using actor-network theory and fuzzy cognitive mapping techniques; and, (v) Communication: Communicating to research, policy and practitioner communities using web-based techniques. The different tasks of the MERINOVA project require expertise in several scientific disciplines: meteorology, statistics, spatial database management, agronomy, bio-physical impact modelling, socio-economic modelling, actor-network theory, fuzzy cognitive mapping techniques. These expertises are shared by the four scientific partners who each lead one work package. The MERINOVA project will concentrate on promoting a robust and flexible framework by demonstrating its performance across Belgian agro-ecosystems, and by ensuring its relevance to policy makers and practitioners. Impacts developed from physically based models will not only provide information on the state of the damage at any given time, but also assist in understanding the links

En las reflexiones que siguen, se observa la heterogeneidad del fenómeno que, lejos de representar en exclusiva la superación y el rebasamiento del sistema deportivo moderno –así como de las características que lo sustentaban– para ubicarse en un universo postmoderno, se presenta como un hecho social total. Un deporte “urbano” que es moderno y postmoderno a la vez, informal y formal, lúdico y competitivo, libre y dirigido, abierto y cerrado, contradictorio y complejo siempre. Este estudio nos permite dibujar las características de algunos itinerarios deportivos urbanos, señalar diferentes perfiles de practicantes y nos acerca a las redes de socialidad que se establecen en este contexto. Las investigaciones empíricas que apoyan la parte de revisión teórica de este estudio, se basan en una serie de trabajos realizados desde el “Grup de Recerca i Innovació en Esport i Societat” (GRIES de la Universitat Ramon Llull, que incorporan un trabajo de campo realizado en diferentes fases durante el periodo 2002-2006.

    Full Text Available Sex together with death are probably the most intensely and diversely symbolized events in human experience. Recent changes in Western sexual mores transcend, nonetheless, the socio-cultural realm. Embryological research and biotechnological experimentation have brought about transformations in the facts of life and the nature of sex which were hitherto inconceivable. In this article I analyze the state of cloning with the aim of thematizing two related issues. Biotechnology is especially good for thinking because it challenges conventional modern dualism which dissociates nature from culture. And a proper comprehension of the implications these biotechnological innovations may have for our conventional notions of reproduction, kinship and sex/gender relationships requires that, beyond analysing its symbolic meanings, we take the materiality of sex seriously.El sexo junto con la muerte son seguramente los momentos de la experiencia humana más intensa y diversamente simbolizados. Los cambios que han tenido lugar en los usos y costumbres sexuales en décadas recientes en las sociedades occidentales trascienden, no obstante, el ámbito socio-cultural. La investigación embriológica y la experimentación biotecnológica han introducido transformaciones aún hace poco inconcebibles de los hechos de la vida y en especial en la naturaleza del sexo. En este texto analizo la actualidad de la clonación para plantear dos cuestiones relacionadas. La biotecnología es tan buena para pensar pues desafía el dualismo convencional moderno que disocia la naturaleza de la cultura. Y para comprender las implicaciones de los avances biotecnológicas para nuestras nociones convencionales de la reproducción, del parentesco y de las relaciones de sexo/género es preciso tomar en serio mas allá de sus significados simbólicos, las materialidades del sexo.

    Continuous discharge of effluents coming from the agro-food industry could significantly increase contamination of water resources (both surface water and groundwater). This is mainly due to the presence of many xenobiotic compounds used for increased productivity or for pre- and post- harvest preservation of the fruits and vegetables used in the industry. In 2013, the European Unión Council Directive 2013/39/UE proposed identifying the main causes of water pollution in order to treat contaminant discharge at the source in a sustainable way and without harming the environment. In this context, conventional biological process do not always provide satisfactory results, especially for industrial wastewater treatment, since many of the organic substances are toxic or resistant to biological treatment. Today, biological processes combined with photoassisted advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), have shown a great potential for treating different kinds of industrial wastewaters. The AOPs have been widely proposed as a highly efficient alternative for tertiary treatments in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants due to their versatility and ability to remove recalcitrant pollutants. AOPs are characterized by the production of hydroxyl radicals (OH) able to oxidize and mineralize almost any organic molecule, yielding CO2 and inorganic ions. The attention of researchers has been focused on AOPs that can be driven by solar radiation to avoid the high operating costs of UV lamps. Heterogeneous photocatalysis with TiO2 has been suggested for the elimination of several types of contaminants in water due to its beneficial characteristics, including physical and chemical stability, low cost and toxicity, and excellent optical properties. However, as TiO2 is used as slurry in water, it must be removed before water disposal. Recuperating the photocatalyst is a complex process and as a result of this, research in different immobilization techniques in various types of

    Full Text Available Contemporary terrorism is not an ancestral, irrational, oriental, phenomenon. Nor is it a fanatical reaction of the religions that vindicate a backward society as against the developed societies of the first world. The terrorism of today is a thoroughly modern phenomenon: one of the worst monstrosities of modern society, supplied with rational planning of objectives. A captious interpretation of the Islamic religion endows terrorism with a universal projection among the multitudinous audience of the discontented with the might of that diffuse power that we know as the developed Western world. Al Qaeda does not hesitate to present its war against the West as «a war without quarter» lasting until the infidel Christians are eliminated and the world is subjugated to Islam In the meantime, in a similar conflictive sense, the theoretical campaign of Samuel Huntington across the entire planet responds with a paradigmatic post-cold war, capable of inflaming the international conflict, in a sense no less belligerent with the Anti-Occident than that employed by the radical Imams. As has been pointed out by Amartya Sen, to give priority in this way to the religious identity, the response of the West to international terrorism in calling it «islamic terrorism» is very clumsy, as it magnifies the importance of the religious authorities in detriment to governmental ways and means in the solving of problems.

    El terrorismo contemporáneo no es un fenómeno ancestral, irracional y oriental. Tampoco es una reacción fanática de las religiones que reivindican una sociedad atrasada frente a las sociedades desarrolladas del primer mundo. El terrorismo actual es un fenómeno plenamente moderno: uno de los peores engendros de la sociedad moderna, dotado de una planificación racional de objetivos. Una interpretación capciosa de la religión islámica dota al terrorismo de una proyección universal entre la numerosa audiencia de descontentos con el poder

    Full Text Available La nota pretende analizar el contexto histórico en el que se inicia la economía tabaquera europea a principios del siglo XVII. Las decisiones sobre la producción, el comercio y la fiscalidad que este nuevo producto provoca en los estados de la época vienen motivadas por su creciente importancia como fuente de recursos públicos ante el espectacular desarrollo de su consumo. En un escenario de guerra casi permanente (Guerra de los Treinta Años, Guerras de Flandes, etc., el tabaco proporciona unos ingresos fiscales saneados a los gobiernos. En este contexto se sitúa la aparición del primer monopolio fiscal moderno, el estanco español del tabaco creado por Real Cédula de 26-XII-1636 y las consecuencias que la misma tuvo para el posterior desarrollo de una economía del tabaco en España.The note expect to analyse the historical environment at the beginning of the XVII century when the tobacco is introduced into the European economy. The production, trade and taxation on the tobacco decisions take for the governments, was driving to become importance of fiscal revenues produced by the growing consumption of that one, because the war needs expenditures drive the fiscal regulation. In this context the Spanish government establish the first fiscal monopoly by Royal Act of 26-XII-1636.

    Full Text Available Relaciona-se pensamento marxista e psicanálise, os quais se tende, hoje, a considerar superados, ainda que nada comparável seja posto em seu lugar. Para esse diálogo entre as duas teorias, são referência primordial os Manuscritos de 1844, obra em que o jovem Marx desenvolve uma espécie de 'teoria do sujeito'. O artigo inicia-se com as primeiras cenas de um filme cubano que situa magnificamente o conflito entre as exigências subjetivas e o pacto social comunista. Em seguida relacionam-se as idéias de Marx sobre o sujeito humano e sua dimensão desejante e o pensamento de Freud. Perante as insuspeitadas possibilidades discursivas desses dois gigantes do pensamento moderno, concluímos que o 'operário' e a 'histérica' - os dois sujeitos que Marx e Freud, respectivamente, trouxeram ao mundo - encontram as vias de uma interlocução.In this article, the author sets up a dialogue between Marxist thinking and psychoanalysis, both of which currently tend to be considered outdated, despite the fact that nothing remotely comparable has been proposed to take their place. Thus, the primary reference is Marx's Manuscripts of 1844, an early work in which he develops what we could call a 'theory of the subject', which is why it is chosen as a reference text for this dialogue with Freudian thinking. The article begins with an account of the first scenes of a Cuban film that masterfully poses the conflict between subjective needs and the communist social pact. It continues by searching for a dimension of desire in Marx's ideas on the human subject, which could provide a link with Freud's thinking. This dialogue ultimately reveals that the discursive potential of these two giants of modern thinking go beyond what most thinkers would effectively see as an insurmountable barrier: the 'worker' and the 'hysteric' - both names of subjects that Marx and Freud, respectively, launched to the world - find the ways forward for a possible dialogue.

    Full Text Available El Área Histórica de la Ciudad Puerto de Valparaíso, declarada Sitio del Patrimonio Mundial UNESCO el 2 de julio del año 2003, se desarrolla a partir del siglo XVI para consolidarse mediante un persistente proceso de modernización hacia fnes del siglo XIX, confgurándose un paisaje histórico urbano, resultante de la transformación que la cultura portuaria, comercial y de intercambio ha ejercido sobre sus recursos naturales. El borde urbano costero de esta ciudad representa una de las invenciones culturales de mayor valor y autenticidad, con un potencial de desarrollo sostenible para el siglo XXI. No obstante, este paisaje se enfrenta a las dinámicas de la globalización mediática y económica, con procesos especulativos transnacionales, donde la planifcación urbana y las administraciones locales, regionales y nacionales son incapaces de asumir un control efectivo. La preservación del paisaje del borde urbano costero de Valparaíso debe asumirse como un patrimonio dinámico, inserto en un territorio urbano vivo, defniéndole indicadores de medición del estado de conservación y desarrollo del bien urbano-costero. Su gestión compromete una directa valoración de los roles históricos, la participación vinculante de los agentes sociales, la promoción de una arquitectura apropiada y la búsqueda de preservación ecológica entre recursos naturales y culturales

    Agro-pastoral ecotone of northern China is a transitional and interlaced zone of agricultural cultivation region and grazing region The ecotone is a complex containing several ecosystems. Soil desertification has become a serious problem that endangered sustainable development in the ecotone. The area of desertification land has been increasing year after year in agro-pastoral ecotone of northern China. This problem concerns the ecological environment, economic development and living quality of people in northern and central eastern of China. For these reasons, ecotone has recently become a focus of research of restoration ecology and global climate change. Remote sensing monitoring of desertification land is a key technique to collect the status and development of sandy land, providing scientific bases for the national desertification control. Landsat ETM+ is an advanced multispectral remote sensing system for the research of regional scale and has been widely used in many fields, such as geologic surveys, mapping, vegetation monitoring, etc. In the present, the authors introduce that spectral characteristics, desertification information extraction, desertification classification and development analyses in detail, and summarizes the study progresses discusses the problems and trends.

  15. A Fifty-Year Sustainability Assessment of Italian Agro-Forest Districts

    Full Text Available As cropland management and land use shifted towards more intensive practices, global land degradation increased drastically. Understanding relationships between ecological and socioeconomic drivers of soil and landscape degradation within these landscapes in economically dynamic contexts such as the Mediterranean region, requires multi-target and multi-scalar approaches covering long-term periods. This study provides an original approach for identifying desertification risk drivers and sustainable land management strategies within Italian agro-forest districts. An Environmental Sensitivity Area (ESA approach, based on four thematic indicators (climate, soil, vegetation and land-use and a composite index of desertification risk (ESAI, was used to evaluate changes in soil vulnerability and landscape degradation between the years 1960 and 2010. A multivariate model was developed to identify the most relevant drivers causing changes in land susceptibility at the district scale. Larger districts, and those with a higher proportion of their total surface area classified as agro-forest, had a significantly lower increase in land susceptibility to degradation during the 50 years when compared with the remaining districts. We conclude that preserving economic viability and ecological connectivity of traditional, extensive agricultural systems is a key measure to mitigate the desertification risk in the Mediterranean region.

  16. Multiple origins of outbreak populations of a native insect pest in an agro-ecosystem.

    Native insects can become epidemic pests in agro-ecosystems. A population genetics approach was applied to analyze the emergence and spread of outbreak populations of native insect species. Outbreaks of the mirid bug, Stenotus rubrovittatus, have rapidly expanded over Japan within the last two decades. To characterize the outbreak dynamics of this species, the genetic structure of local populations was assessed using polymorphisms of the mtDNA COI gene and six microsatellite loci. Results of the population genetic analysis suggested that S. rubrovittatus populations throughout Japan were genetically isolated by geographic distance and separated into three genetic clusters occupying spatially segregated regions. Phylogeographic analysis indicated that the genetic structure of S. rubrovittatus reflected post-glacial colonization. Early outbreaks of S. rubrovittatus in the 1980s occurred independently of genetically isolated populations. The genetic structure of the populations did not fit the pattern of an outbreak expansion, and therefore the data did not support the hypothesis that extensive outbreaks were caused by the dispersal of specific pestiferous populations. Rather, the historical genetic structure prior to the outbreaks was maintained throughout the increase in abundance of the mirid bug. Our study indicated that changes in the agro-environment induced multiple outbreaks of native pest populations. This implies that, given suitable environmental conditions, local populations may have the potential to outbreak even without invasion of populations from other environmentally degraded areas.

    Full Text Available An experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of grower turkeys to diets containing different agro industrial by-products. A total of 120grower turkeys were used for this study. Four experimental diets were formulated and designated as T1, T2, T3, and T4. T1 (control diet contained none of the agro industrial by products used while T2, T3 and T4 contained15% each of Wheat offal, Maize offal, Rice offal respectively. The turkeys were randomly allocated to four experimental treatments of thirty birds per treatment while each treatment was replicated three times (3 with ten (10 birds per pen in a completely randomized design. The result of growth performance revealed that average feed intake, average weight gain and feed conversion ratio of turkeys fed the control and 15% Wheat Offal diets were not significantly different (P>0.05. The result of carcass characteristics and organ weights followed similar trend. Turkeys fed 15% Maize Offal and 15% Rice Offal diets recorded the lowest values (P0.05 in all the haematological parameters and serum biochemical indices measured except PCV which decreased across the treatment groups. It was concluded that 15% wheat offal can be included in the diet of grower turkeys without adverse effect on growth performance, carcass yield and health status of birds. Â

    The goal of this study was to identify the biosurfactant-producing bacteria isolated from agro-food industrial effluet. The identification of the potential bacterial strain using a polymerase chain reaction of the 16S rRNA gene analysis was closely related to Serratia marcescens with its recorded strain of SA30 “Fundamentals of mass transfer and kinetics for biosorption of oil and grease from agro-food industrial effluent by Serratia marcescens SA30” (Fulazzaky et al., 2015) [1]; however, many biochemical tests have not been published yet. The biochemical tests of biosurfactant production, haemolytic assay and cell surface hydrophobicity were performed to investigate the beneficial strain of biosurfactant-producing bacteria. Here we do share data collected from the biochemical tests to get a better understanding of the use of Serratia marcescens SA30 to degrade oil, which contributes the technical features of strengthening the biological treatment of oil-contaminated wastewater in tropical environments.

    Full Text Available Microalgae are fast-growing photosynthetic organisms which have the potential to be exploited as an alternative source of liquid fuels to meet growing global energy demand. The cultivation of microalgae, however, still needs to be improved in order to reduce the cost of the biomass produced. Among the major costs encountered for algal cultivation are the costs for nutrients such as CO2, nitrogen and phosphorous. In this work, therefore, different microalgal strains were cultivated using as nutrient sources three different anaerobic digestates deriving from municipal wastewater, sewage sludge or agro-waste treatment plants. In particular, anaerobic digestates deriving from agro-waste or sewage sludge treatment induced a more than 300% increase in lipid production per volume in Chlorella vulgaris cultures grown in a closed photobioreactor, and a strong increase in carotenoid accumulation in different microalgae species. Conversely, a digestate originating from a pilot scale anaerobic upflow sludge blanket (UASB was used to increase biomass production when added to an artificial nutrient-supplemented medium. The results herein demonstrate the possibility of improving biomass accumulation or lipid production using different anaerobic digestates.
