    Full Text Available El Dr. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna ejerció su profesión durante poco tiempo, pero dejó huellas indelebles en los pueblos y en la historia de la medicina en Nuestra América. Con este trabajo no se pretende valorar su faceta como facultativo, pero sí destacar sus estudios sobre la alergia y su pensamiento humanista, que estuvo presente desde sus primeros pasos en su profesión, en conceptos que evolucionaron en la medida en que viajaba y se enfrentaba a la realidad de su época y su medio, convirtiéndose en un abanderado de la medicina social. El Che viajó como “un soldado de América” por nuestro continente, estuvo allí donde nadie quería ir, vio el dolor, la pobreza, la desesperanza y comprendió el papel del médico, el que sólo con su presencia puede aliviar al hombre; entendió que no podía ser igual que sus colegas de la época; pudo tenerlo todo: honores, dinero, prefirió que sus únicos honorarios debían ser el agradecimiento del prójimo, la sonrisa de los pobres, la satisfacción del deber cumplido; se dio cuenta que la sociedad se lo impedía y decidió ser Médico Revolucionario, por eso contribuyó a realizarla, nos tocó a nosotros que la hiciera en Cuba y nos legó sus ideas. Sea, pues este trabajo un homenaje a él que lo dio todo por nosotros y no satisfecho con ello decidió dar la vida por “Su América”Dr. Ernesto Guevara worked as a practitioner for a short time, but left valuable in the history of medicine in the countries of our America. It is not intended to asses his role as a doctor in this paper, but to enhance his studies on allergy and his humanist thinking as well. His humanist thinking was linked to his professional work since its beginnings. His concepts became better as he travelled and faced reality; therefore, he became a pioneer on medicine within society. Che travelled as a soldier throughout our continent; he was in those places where people never wanted to visit. He saw people's sufferings

    2014-01-01

    La teoría del discurso de Ernesto Laclau ha relegado notablemente el análisis y la reflexividad acerca del componente extra-lingüístico del discurso, en desmedro de los factores lingüísticos. Sin embargo, existe una pluralidad de fragmentos de los textos laclonianos que destacan su importancia en los procesos políticos. El presente trabajo toma como base estas contribuciones para analizar esta dimensión central de los procesos de construcción de hegemonías. Integrando la perspectiva de Lac...

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo consigno algunas reflexiones que me ha despertado la lectura de la obrade Ernesto Laclau. En especial, encontré sumamente sugestiva su reconsideración del viejo tópicodel populismo. A mi entender, Laclau no solamente ha dado con una nueva forma de considerarel tema, sino lo político tout court. Mi perspectiva de lectura y evaluación de las propuestasde Laclau se apoya en el psicoanálisis, que constituye para mí el horizonte de cualquier reconstrucciónposible de las ciencias sociales.

Pues, si bien no se sumó al carnaval de los profetas de todas las tendencias que empezaron a hacer su agosto ideológico en la profunda crisis que se vivió en los decenios posteriores a su llegada - basta pensar en los poco recomendables Viktor Frankl y Alfredo Trendall- , lo cierto es que Volkening prefirió mantenerse al margen de la formación institucional de la vida académica del país --que fue el caso contrario de su compatriota el notable geógrafo Ernesto Guhl, autor de la obra estándar Colombia: bosquejo de su geografía tropical (1975- y permaneció muy alejado del escenario crítico-cultural que animaría un poco más tarde polémicamente, entre otras, la argentino-colombiana Marta Traba.

    Radrigán K, María Eugenia

    2015-09-01

    Seldom, in the history of Chilean medicine, there has been such a unique parallelism between the professional development of a person and that of a discipline as it has been the case of Professor Ernesto L. Medina and Public Health in Chile. Dr. Medina's undergraduate (University of Chile) and postgraduate (Harvard School of Public Health) studies coincided with the foundation of the University of Chile School of Public Health by an agreement among the University and two governmental health care providers, and also with the foundation of the Chilean National Health Service. His research covered the epidemiology of non- infectious diseases in the adult, such as cancer, their socio economic impact, the importance of early detection, treatment and surveillance, as well as the epidemiology of other chronic diseases, accidents and new epidemics. As Director of the School of Public Health for 25 years, he promoted the development of disciplines and courses addressed to health and other care-providers in order to improve their knowledge and expertise as statisticians, epidemiologists, administrators, budget officers. An example of his innovative look at medical education was the creation of post graduate training in the basic clinical specialties combined with public health, in order to have specialists able to undertake both the clinical and administrative duties at the primary care clinics. These programs ran in parallel with the rural internships financed by the Kellogg Foundation at the School of Medicine. Enumerating the distinctions and prizes awarded to Professor Medina would be too long for the purpose of this tribute, and selecting just a few would run the risk of being unfair. Still, there is one: the "Orden de la Cruz del Sur" that deserves the exception given its long existence and the fact that it was awarded to a physician "for distinguished achievements in Public Health".

  3. El concepto de poder en Ernesto Mayz-Vallenilla

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Ávila Fuenmayor

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available El propósito del presente artículo es mostrar los principales aspectos relacionados con el poder, enmarcados en el pensamiento gnoseológico de Ernesto Mayz-Vallenilla, hombre de gran prosapia filosófica. La investigación es de carácter documental, pues, descansa en una revisión bibliográfica de sus principales obras. La cuestión del afán de poder, como raíz de la técnica, es una de las aristas que nuestro autor aborda ampliamente e intenta bosquejar una ética frente al uso incontrolable por el hombre de los instrumentos de la técnica. Ésta, en cuanto constituye un producto dirigido por la Razón, tiene su origen en lo que nuestro autor llama "subjetividad trascendental". Interesa destacar que sea cual fuere la modalidad que asuma el afán de poder, debe existir una relación entre dos o más términos, éstos son el agente emisor y el agente receptor. Si las condiciones se dan, el agente emisor logra el dominio sobre el agente receptor, lo cual da lugar al cumplimiento del mandato, es decir, el dominio se revela como obediencia por parte de este último al cumplirse la orden.

    Full Text Available Es incuestionable el legado de la oratoria de Ernesto Guevara de la Serna para la construcción del socialismo en Cuba. Ello se confirma en este trabajo que ofrece un acercamiento a la proyección del Che como orador político: el carácter histórico, reflexivo y didáctico de los discursos pronunciados por él en diferentes escenarios, fundamentalmente de los dirigidos al pueblo en la etapa que reclamaba el contacto y el diálogo de los dirigentes con la masa, ávida de compenetrarse con la nueva ideología revolucionaria.Ernesto Guevara de la Serna’s oratorical legacy is unquestionable to build socialism in Cuba. This paper confirms this statement by approaching Che’s projection as political orator: the historical, reflexive, didactical character of his speeches given to the people in diverse sceneries, especially in a period demanding contact between leaders and masses eager to identify closely with the new revolutionary ideology in power.

  6. Ernesto Quesada, a Positivist Traveler. Between Cosmopolitism and Scientific Patriarchy

    Gasquet, Axel

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Ernesto Quesada (1858-1934 was a renowned and prolific intellectual of the 1890 generation in Argentina. With his father, Vicente Gaspar Quesada, he co-directed Nueva Revista de Buenos Aires between 1863 and 1871. Sociologist, Professor, Germanist and publicist, Quesada was a well-known representative of positivism. A true cosmopolitan, Quesada stood out as a traveler among his peers who were used to extensive journeys, especially in the west. He embarked on unconventional paths for the Argentineans of his time; in 1884 he traveled to Russia and around the world in 1913. These experiences are registered in A Winter in Russia (1888 and Around the World (1914, texts that have not been subject to critique until now. There are thirty years of intense intellectual work from one book to the other. We will study them in the light of his work and time, when a new vision about the Middle and Far East -independent from Europe- was born in Argentina. This contributed to create the model for a modern liberal state for the Argentinean nation. This timespan goes from the federalization of Buenos Aires (with the founding of La Plata as provincial capital in 1882 to the opulence of the centenary (1910.

De cultura cosmopolita, Quesada se distingue asimismo por ser un notable viajero entre una generación que transitó extensamente el mundo, especialmente el occidental. Quesada fatigó además derroteros poco convencionales para los rioplatenses de su época, en especial durante su periplo por Rusia en 1884 y su extensa vuelta al mundo de 1913.

    Agradezco a la Junta Directiva de la Academia el honor que me hace al designarme comentarista del interesante trabajo del Dr. Augusto Peñaranda Sanjuán; me complace esta designación que he aceptado gustoso. El autor, como polifacético intelectual, además de ser un eminente especialista en Otorrinolaringología, es un aventajado economista de la Universidad Javeriana en donde adelantó la Maestría con mucho éxito. Es a la vez Magíster en Administración en Salud.

    A sus condiciones personales suma el Dr. Peñaranda, todo un acervo de títulos profesionales que en el área médica lo han llevado al más alto reconocimiento académico y en el sector de la Economía y la Administración lo proyectan como una figura promisoria que seguramente llegará a las altas posiciones de la gerencia estratégica en las instituciones de salud. Distribuye su vasta inteligencia entre actividades del campo médico y avatares del terreno económico-social; sus logros en la especialidad médica son bien reconocidos por sus colegas y discípulos. Lo más interesante de su habilidad inquisitiva es que así como se introduce magistralmente en la fosa coclear para realizar un laborioso implante, va hasta las nimiedades de las encuestas de hogares publicadas por el DANE para descepar de allí valiosos materiales informativos que lo llevan a montar una urdimbre de reflexiones y consideraciones de tipo social de insoslayable trascendencia dentro de la programática de un Gobierno. En una y otra disciplina Peñaranda exhibe el más acendrado profesionalismo.

    Antes de introducirme en el análisis de su interesante trabajo traigo a la memoria aquella reflexión de Jacob Bronowski, autor del “Ascenso del Hombre”: “El hombre de hoy y de mañana tiene el compromiso con su conciencia de conocer al menos la realidad social de la gente que lo rodea; ignorarla es demostrar que toma como trampolín la arena movediza de la fantasía”.

    Full Text Available El motivo de análisis que he escogido para trazar un posible itinerario en la historia del cine es la representación simbólica de la sexualidad y su expresión a través de la figura narrativa del doble en Drácula de Bram Stoker (Francis Ford Coppola, 1992, el film que tomó como pre-texto la revisión del mito literario y fílmico; y que ha impulsado una lectura retroactiva del mismo en el discurso teórico. Mi lectura no se centra en la representación de la sexualidad masculina sino también en la femenina, reprimida en la lectura del discurso teórico sobre el arquetipo, más allá de un beso del vampiro, el mordisco erótico, que cada vez se hace más visible en el trayecto audiovisual del mito. ¿Cómo se simboliza la diferencia sexual?, ¿cómo se representa el deseo femenino?; en definitiva: ¿qué simboliza, desde esta perspectiva, Drácula? Desde esta perspectiva, mi análisis del film se detendrá en segmentos nucleares del relato: secuencia prólogo, secuencia 1, secuencia clímax y su secuencia epílogo para concluir con un seguimiento del arquetipo femenino en algunas de las versiones fílmicas más admiradas del mito literario.

Después de una ejemplar y fructífera existencia, plena de múltiples realizaciones, se hace indispensable el goce de la paz eterna. Partieron, pese nos dejaron la huella de dos vidas que marcharon paralelamente con destino hacia un mismo objetivo, el niño colombiano.

    Este ser, la razón primera de nuestra especialidad, incapaz de mentir, inocente, indiferente ante lo bueno y lo malo, indefenso, amante del mundo que lo rodea, tierno y cariñoso. Fueron dos ilustres colombianos que caminaron por el mismo sendero, con diferente fin. Ernesto Plata Rueda en el campo de la investigación y la docencia y Rafael Barberi Zamorano en la dirección y administración del Hospital de la Misericordia, cuna de la pediatría en nuestra patria y recurso en salud en favor de las clases sociales menos favorecidas.

    Como extraña y feliz coincidencia el destino los ubicó a pocos metros de distancia el uno del otro, lo que facilitó para que sus labores fueran siempre acordes y se desarrollaran en perfecta armonía por cerca de tres lustros; esta circunstancia permite al final presentar a las generaciones futuras toda esa inmensa gama de realizaciones que hoy quedan en los campos de la salud y la ciencia. Tuve la inmensa fortuna de ser testigo cercano del diario desarrollo de sus actividades y es por esta razón por la cual no puedo retirar de la mente la capacidad de trabajo, dedicación y amor a los pacientes, al Hospital, de Rafael Barberi un gran filántropo, hombre tímido y sencillo, virtudes que lo hicieron más grande y admirable; no le faltó jamás el valor suficiente dentro de la mayor honestidad y respeto para convertirse en aguerrido defensor de la Institución y de sus colaboradores, también fué geperoso y bondadoso al otorgar el perdón y el olvido a sus ocasionales detractores.

    Full Text Available Este artículo considera algunos ejes de la discusión teórica entre Ernesto Laclau y Judith Butler. En particular, se analizan los modos en que estos autores definen las categorías de sujeto y de identidad, preguntándose por las implicancias que los usos de ciertos conceptos del psicoanálisis tienen para esas definiciones. Esta pregunta por los modos de comprender la subjetividad y la identidad se enlaza con una discusión más amplia sobre la trascendencia de ciertas categorías de análisis de lo social y lo cultural. De esta forma, el artículo se enfoca en los contrapuntos teóricos entre los autores sobre categorías tales como universalidad, política e historicidad.

    Full Text Available La luxación del codo, asociada a la fractura del proceso coronoideo y a la fractura de la cabeza radial, es denominada “tríada terrible del codo”, debido a la complejidad al abordar el tratamiento correcto y lo desalentador de los resultados que se obtienen con el mismo. Se realizó un estudio prospectivo, donde se recogen los resultados postoperatorios, obtenidos en cuatro pacientes con inestabilidad traumática aguda del codo, tratados entre enero de 2012 y mayo de 2013, que acudieron inicialmente al cuerpo de guardia del Hospital General Docente “Dr. Ernesto Guevara de La Serna” y tuvieron un seguimiento medio de ocho meses. El proceder consistió en reparación de la coronoides, del ligamento lateral externo, reparación de la cúpula radial, cupulectomía y colocación de pin endomedular; la técnica operatoria a emplear se definió por los estudios radiográficos realizados y los hallazgos en el transcurso del proceder. Los pacientes, tres hombres y una mujer, tuvieron cinco codos lesionados y un promedio de edad de 34 años. Como resultado del tratamiento la flexión fue normal entre 130-135° en 4 codos y limitada en uno a 110°, la extensión se encontró limitada de 8 a 21° en todos los pacientes, la pronosupinación se mantuvo limitada en todos los casos entre 5 y 22°. La intervención quirúrgica mediante fijación y reparación de los estabilizadores del codo proporcionó a corto plazo una funcionabilidad del codo cercana a la normalidad, los pacientes evolucionaron positivamente. Las complicaciones fueron: reluxación, infección local y aflojamiento de la osteosíntesis

    Vástago de distinguidas familias bogotanas y santandereanas, muchos de cuyos miembros sobresalieron en las esferas públicas y privadas a todo lo largo del siglo XX, Andrade Valderrama, egresado de la Universidad Nacional en 1942, ocupó todos los escalones del arduo escalafón quirúrgico y docente en su alma mater hasta culminar su carrera como Profesor Titular y luego como Profesor Emérito y Honorario, siguiendo la línea que antes de él habían trazado hombres de la talla de Rafael Ucrós, Juan N. Corpas y César Augusto Pantoja. En 1947, junto con varios otros ilustres colegas de la época, fue fundador de la Sociedad Colombiana de Gastroenterología, de la que llegaría a ser Presidente en 1955-56; en 1950 había sido también de los fundadores del Colegio Colombiano de Cirujanos. Hombre de gran talento y de intensa disciplina científica y administrativa, fue Decano de la Facultad de Medicina a mediados de esa década, en una de las épocas más cruciales de la Universidad Nacional, cuando trataban de imponerse reformas substanciales en la educación médica del país. Con su ejemplo, con su don de gentes, con su discreción y su señorío él supo liderar el inicio de esas reformas que después otros se encargarían de llevar a feliz término, aun consciente de haber sido objeto de la maledicencia de muchos de la vieja escuela que creían conculcados sus derechos y que, con los años, terminarían dándole la razón y reconociendo su prístina trayectoria...

    Full Text Available Introducción y Objetivo. El síndrome de Parry Romberg se caracteriza por atrofia hemifacial progresiva; afecta piel y tejidos blandos y en ocasiones provoca también atrofia de músculos, cartílago y estructuras óseas subyacentes. Su diagnóstico diferencial incluye: esclerodermia generalizada, morfea y síndrome de CREST. Las alteraciones en piel se asocian con variantes alélicas (polimórficas del sistema HLA (antígeno leucocitario humano. La esclerodermia se ha asociado con HLA DR11, el CREST con DR1 y DR3, en tanto que la morfea no parece asociarse a genes del HLA en población mexicana. El propósito de este trabajo es explorar la posibilidad de asociación del síndrome de Parry Romberg con algún alelo del sistema HLA con el fin de entender el mecanismo fisiopatogénico y el probable papel de la etnicidad en la prevalencia e incidencia de esta enfermedad en individuos mestizos mexicanos. Material y método. Estudiamos 24 pacientes con Parry Romberg, de la consulta externa de Cirugía Plástica y Reconstructiva del Hospital General "Dr. Manuel Gea González" de la Ciudad de México. El diagnóstico se basó en hallazgos clínicos, imagenología e histopatología de las lesiones dérmicas. Establecimos las frecuencias génicas y haplotípicas de los antígenos del sistema HLA en los 24 pacientes (48 haplotipos. El estudio incluyó los loci HLA A, B, DR, DQ. Comparamos los resultados con las frecuencias presentes en un grupo de 99 controles mestizos mexicanos sin antecedentes de enfermedades autoinmunes y/o metabólicas. Analizamos las diferencias en las frecuencias génicas mediante estadística no paramétrica que incluyó prueba de Chi cuadrado y exacta de Fisher, además de determinación de RM (razón de momios e intervalos de confianza de 95%. Resultados. Encontramos en los pacientes con Parry Romberg aumento significativo del HLA DRB1*16 (frecuencia génica: 14% en SPR vs 1% en normales. p=0.002, OR: 6.5, IC 95%: 1.9-21.7 y

    Full Text Available La incidencia de lactantes con anemia ferropénica, a pesar de existir un programa de prevención de esta anemia en estas edades, sobre todo en el área de salud del policlínico “Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima”, ha sido la motivación de un estudio, con el objetivo de determinar los factores de riesgo que guardan asociación causal con esta problemática. La investigación se llevó a cabo durante el período de enero de 2010 a junio de 2012; analítica de casos y controles. El grupo de enfermos estuvo formado por 25 pacientes diagnosticados clínicamente y por estudios hematológicos. El grupo de control estuvo constituido por 50 niños no afectados, escogidos al azar. Los resultados se expusieron en tablas de contingencia de 2 x 2, que permitieron determinar los antecedentes prenatales, natales y postnatales,  favorecedores de anemia.

    Señores Académicos, señoras, señores :

    Retornamos antes de ocho días a esta alta tribuna del pensamiento académico, esta vez para acoger y exaltar como Académico Honorario al Profesor Dr. Egon Lichtenberger. En él consagramos no solamente a la Anatomía Patológica como especialidad, ausente muchos lustros de este recinto bogotano, desde la época de su numerario y posterior Presidente Dr. Juan Pablo Llinás, sino especialmente a la persona que con su dedicación, su enseñanza y su ejemplo ha servido para darle la categoría que corresponde a esta rama del saber médico, formando generaciones de nuevos patólogos que han extendido su conocimiento por todo lo largo y ancho de nuestra accidentada geografía.

    Para reconocer la dimensión exacta de sus contribuciones, habría que mirar en qué estado se encontraba la anatomía patológica en Colombia al finalizar la década de los años cuarentas cuando Egon se gradúa de la Universidad Nacional, en 1947, con una tesis calificada como meritoria. Hasta la época de la lla. Guerra Mundial toda nuestra enseñanza anatomopatológica tomaba sus raíces en Francia, directamente derivada de Bichat y de Cruveilhier y admirablemente suplementada por los textos de anatomía descriptiva de Testut – Latarjet, que todo estudiante debía memorizar en dos años de agobiador ejercicio mnemotécnico. Allí, desde los bancos de disección anatómica, se barruntaban las variaciones de lo normal a lo patológico, que simultámeamente y a partir del segundo año de carrera se entrelazaban con las preparaciones histopatológicas.

    Sin embargo, a pesar de que la escuela fisiopatológica se había originado en la Francia de mediados del ochocientos con Claude Bernard y sus seguidores, la anatomopatológia seguía teniendo la misma rigidez descriptiva de los anatomistas clásicos, sin que tratara de orientarse al estudiante, las más de las veces, hacia las

    Full Text Available A partir de un análisis temático, esta investigación exploró la vigencia de la crónica entre los periodistas y las audiencias latinoamericanos, en una época cuando la inmediatez se ha tomado las redacciones. El estudio de trece textos del periodista colombiano Ernesto McCausland Sojo permitió identificar una amplia gama de temas y un estilo narrativo alternativo. Los resultados mostraron temas universales, como la vida, la muerte, los triunfos y los fracasos; insertaron al costeño en una realidad rodeada de magia, humor y música, y encontraron rasgos diferenciales en el estilo de las crónicas del autor. McCausland fue un periodista multimedia que logró mezclar elementos del cine, la literatura, la poesía, el periodismo y la música en sus relatos y le imprimió nuevos bríos a este género como alternativa de la reportería vertiginosa de la era digital.

Se realizó un estudio descriptivo prospectivo, en el período comprendido entre enero de 2011 y abril de 2013, en una muestra no probabilística de ocho pacientes (diez codos, seleccionados según criterios de inclusión y exclusión. Los objetivos fundamentales del estudio fueron: la actualización de conocimientos para el manejo de la enfermedad y la caracterización de los resultados obtenidos en los afectados por esta dolencia que fueron operados en el Hospital Dr. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna de la provincia de Las Tunas. Se analizaron los datos mediante técnicas estadísticas descriptivas y se realizó la evaluación clínica y radiográfica de los lesionados. El tratamiento se ejecutó según los hallazgos y consistió en: reparación ligamentosa, actuación sobre las partes óseas dañadas y colocación de osteosíntesis diversas. La edad promedio fue de 39,2 años y predominó el sexo masculino. A todos se les practicó reparación ligamentosa, siete cupulectomías y seis aplicaciones de cerclajes anti-distractores. Existieron dos reluxaciones y una sepsis local. La amplitud de movimientos fue aceptable dentro del rango compatible, con una buena función ergonómica; de acuerdo a las comparaciones bibliográficas actualizadas que se realizaron. La fijación y reparación de los estabilizadores del codo brindan buenos resultados funcionales. La sistematización en el manejo de la enfermedad, la detección de complicaciones y el arsenal terapéutico disponible son factores a tener en cuenta

    émico Dr. Juan Mendoza-Vega como Presidente de la Academia Nacional de Medicina (2002-2004 Sesión solemne de marzo 21 de 2002 de la Medicina, un período de avances y cambios tan profundos y abundantes como jamás se había vivido; con rapidez creciente, pasamos del examen clínico visual, táctil y auditivo, los Rayos X y las pruebas de laboratorio elementales, a un acervo tecnológico integrado alrededor de los computadores y que hoy nos permite ver, literalmente, el interior del cuerpo vivo y analizar sus funciones con un grado de precisión que llega al nivel de las moléculas. El propio genoma humano, la clave de aquello que nos da caracteres especiales y únicos como especie que piensa, se analiza a sí misma y se comunica con especial finura, está entregando sus secretos a los sabios que lo estudian.

    Si eso fuera todo, podríamos celebrar la llegada de nuevo poder para ayudar a nuestros semejantes en el cuidado de su salud, la mejora en su calidad de vida, el combate contra la enfermedad. Pero, al tiempo con los conocimientos científicos y las novedades tecnológicas, han aparecido cambios sociales que construyen un escenario igualmente nuevo para el ejercicio de la Medicina y, al menos en nuestro país, un intento más o menos soterrado para privarnos de nuestra condición de profesionales y ponernos a desempeñar un oficio sujeto a condiciones de actividad comercial; esto, por razones obvias, nos causa profunda preocupación.

    Al estudiar la situación en Colombia durante los últimos ocho o diez años, hemos visto que es posible enfocar la Medicina de dos modos bien distintos:

    – Como un oficio, es decir, atendiendo sobre todo a la aplicación de conocimientos y habilidades para conseguir una “obra” que cumpla ciertas normas y llene las expectativas de quien “recibe” esa “obra”, que sería el cliente.

    – O, de otro lado, como una profesión, que se estructura alrededor de un compromiso, de base ética, que el profesional

Las mismas condensan los debates en torno al papel del Estado, de las políticas públicas nacionales, regionales y, particularmente, la influencia norteamericana en Argentina a través de su figura. Las medidas legislativas y políticas de la época, de indudable corte represivo, fueron significativas para los avances del Estado en la esfera privada, la creciente importancia de los cuerpos profesionales en la definición de fronteras materiales y simbólicas sobre lo socialmente aceptable, incluyendo lo relativo al consumo de drogas. También se destacan los múltiples propósitos que parecen satisfacer estas políticas: en el plano local habilitan otras formas de represión de los conflictos derivados de la inmigración mientras que, en el internacional, complacen a los requerimientos norteamericanos.

  16. Democracy, hegemony and populism. Ernesto Laclau as reader of Claude Lefort

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tomás Gold

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Since “Hegemony and socialist strategy”, Ernesto Laclau has adopted Claude Lefort´s understanding of modern democracy regarding his own work. However, in his posterior work and specially in “The populist reason”, Laclau´s conceptualization of democratic experience confronts with his initial thoughts, causing a rupture with Lefort´s understanding on the subject. This paper has two objectives. On the one hand, it will try to clarify how Laclau reads Lefort´s work in “The populist reason”, trying to prove that his latter understanding of the democratic experience is –in some aspects- contradictory with that of the French philosopher. On the other hand, it will try to follow Laclau´s consideration of populism, in order to understand the indefinition between Populism and Democracy, a subject that has been –in many cases- poorly studied, and represents one of the main theoretical issues regarding populism.

El pabellón auricular es un blanco frecuente de esta patología. Presentamos el protocolo de tratamiento empleado en nuestro hospital en los últimos 6 años con terapia combinada en 51 pacientes y 64 pabellones auriculares afectados por queloides. Aplicamos de forma preoperatoria 3 dosis de triamcinolona o betametasona intralesional, con diferencia de 4 a 6 semanas entre dosis y 4 semanas después de la última dosis, realizamos resección de la cicatriz dejando piel suficiente para el cierre sin tensión. En los pacientes que presentaban antecedente de resección quirúrgica se añadió al tratamiento el uso de colchicina, comenzando el día de la cirugía y manteniéndolo durante 8 semanas, a dosis de 1 mg. al día, con control de pruebas de función hepática pre y postratamiento. En el 74.5 % de los casos la cicatriz queloide fue unilateral; el 56.8 % de los pacientes fueron mujeres; las edades fluctuaron entre los 8 y los 61 años con una media de 24 años de edad. En el 65 % de los casos el queloide se presentó en el pabellón auricular derecho y en cuanto a su localización dentro del mismo, el 42 % se presentó en el lóbulo.

O que dá forma e sustenta a narrativa da obra é a ideia de que os movimentos constituem retratos musicais destes compositores. Assim, a estrutura de cada movimento foi elaborada a partir de um modelo, ou seja, de cada compositor Gnattali escolheu uma peça que serviria de roteiro para o processo criativo dos retratos. Este estudo tem como foco o segundo movimento da suíte, a valsa, observando como está relacionado ao seu respectivo modelo, a valsa Expansiva de Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934. Para ilustrar o paralelo será apresentada uma análise mais comparativa do que formal, procurando ampliar a visão do contexto histórico com evidências musicais, concentrando-se principalmente nos elementos comuns a ambas as peças.Written in 1956 by Brazilian composer Radamés Gnattali (1906-1988 for solo mandolin, choro ensemble and strings orchestra, Retratos (namely, Portraits in Portuguese is a four movement suite that pays homage to some of the most significant personalities in the history of Brazilian popular music: Pixinguinha, Ernesto Nazareth, Anacleto de Medeiros and Chiquinha Gonzaga. What shapes and supports the suite's narrative is the idea that the movements represent musical portraits of these composers. As a result, each movement was structured after a model, that is, Gnattali has chosen a particular piece by each composer that would serve as a blueprint for the creative process of the portraits. The focus of this study is the suite's second movement, the waltz, observing how it is related to its respective model, the waltz Expansiva by Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934.

  3. ALGUNAS INVESTIGACIONES DEL DR. GROOT EN LA REVISTA MEDICINA. RESEÑA HISTÓRICA DE ALGUNOS ESTUDIOS COLOMBIANOS SOBRE TRYPANOSOMA RANGELI

    Artículo publicado en la revista MEDICINA Vol. 22 (2 del año 2000.

    Parecerá extraño que uno de los primeros artículos de esta revista no se refiera a la enfermedad de Chagas. Tanto es así que cuando el doctor Felipe Guhl tuvo la idea de llamarme para esta presentación, mi primera respuesta fue negativa porque, obviamente debería hablarse del Trvpanosoma cruzi y no del Trypanosoma rangeli. El presente artículo es un breve recuento de mi experiencia con este parásito y su importancia dado que coexiste con el T. cruzi y que, en ocasiones, la diferenciación morfológica entre los dos no es tan clara cuando se examinan preparaciones de sangre en ‘gota gruesa’ de vertebrados o preparaciones del contenido intestinal de los insectos vectores, y además porque tiene ciertas relaciones inmunológicas que es necesario tener en cuenta para evitar posibles confusiones. Por otra parte, su distribución geográfica es muy amplia extendiéndose desde México hasta el Perú y el Brasil.

    El Trypanosoma rangeli fue llamado así por un distinguido médico y posteriormente diplomático de Venezuela, el doctor Enrique Tejera, quien encontró en los chipos, o sea en los Rhodnius prolixus de Venezuela, un pequeño flagelado muy largo, bastante diferente del T. cruzi y resolvió ponerle el nombre de Trypanosoma o Crithidia rangeli, pues no estaba muy seguro del género en el cual debía colocarlo. Evidentemente, sólo había visto la morfología de estos flagelados en el intestino de los Rhodnius y, por consiguiente, no tenía ningún otro elemento para identificarlos. Únicamente comprobó que eran diferentes del T. cruzi.

    ¿Por qué le dedicó su descubrimiento a Rangel? Creo que es importante que nosotros los latinoamericanos conozcamos bien los valores científicos que han habido en nuestros países y en vez de preocuparnos por las artificiales fronteras políticas, lo cual en nada contribuye al progreso de la

    The second Gaia data release, Gaia DR2, encompasses astrometry, photometry, radial velocities, astrophysical parameters (stellar effective temperature, extinction, reddening, radius, and luminosity), and variability information plus astrometry and photometry for a sample of pre-selected bodies in the solar system. The data collected during the first 22 months of the nominal, five-year mission have been processed by the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC), resulting into this second data release. A summary of the release properties is provided in Gaia Collaboration et al. (2018b). The overall scientific validation of the data is described in Arenou et al. (2018). Background information on the mission and the spacecraft can be found in Gaia Collaboration et al. (2016), with a more detailed presentation of the Radial Velocity Spectrometer (RVS) in Cropper et al. (2018). In addition, Gaia DR2 is accompanied by various, dedicated papers that describe the processing and validation of the various data products. Four more Gaia Collaboration papers present a glimpse of the scientific richness of the data. In addition to this set of refereed publications, this documentation provides a detailed, complete overview of the processing and validation of the Gaia DR2 data. Gaia data, from both Gaia DR1 and Gaia DR2, can be retrieved from the Gaia archive, which is accessible from https://archives.esac.esa.int/gaia. The archive also provides various tutorials on data access and data queries plus an integrated data model (i.e., description of the various fields in the data tables). In addition, Luri et al. (2018) provide concrete advice on how to deal with Gaia astrometry, with recommendations on how best to estimate distances from parallaxes. The Gaia archive features an enhanced visualisation service which can be used for quick initial explorations of the entire Gaia DR2 data set. Pre-computed cross matches between Gaia DR2 and a selected set of large surveys are

    COMO MIEMBRO HONORARIO DE LA ACADEMIA NACIONAL DE MEDICINA DE COLOMBIA.

    Hace ya muchos años, por allá en 1948, tuve el privilegio de conocer a Humberto Rosselli cuando llegó a trabajar en el Asilo de Locas, localizado en la vieja casa de la calle sa entre carreras 11 y 14, antaño denominada curiosamente "La Quinta de ninguna parte", nombre que tal vez en tiempos pasados no hubiera sido del todo inadecuado para una institución donde otrora reinaban la desolación y la desesperanza. 

    A la sazón el Asilo estaba dirigido por Edmundo Rico, quien continuando la labor de Maximiliana Rueda y de Julio Manrique había renovado por completo la atención de los pacientes al mejorar todos los servicios y al abrir nuevos, tales como los de urología, neurología, ginecología y sobre todo, al haber vigorizado la enseñanza de la psiquiatría con sus vastos conocimientos y con su capacidad docente sin par. Señalo estos detalles porque fue este ambiente de ciencia y humanismo, semillero de muchos médicos y psiquiatras que han honrado la medicina, donde precisamente entró Humberto y donde, sin duda, afirmó su pasión por la psiquiatría. Fue allí donde se produjo el arranque de una carrera ininterrumpida de servicio, de investigación y de estudio, como médico, como impulsador de la psiquiatría, como profesor, como historiador y como ensayista. Me haría interminable si describiera toda su actividad y sus brillantes resultados.

    On 16 February 1845 the Reverend W. H. Browne, rector of St John's Church in Launceston, Van Diemen's Land, wrote in his journal, "My dear Wife died very suddenly almost immediately after and in consequence of taking a preparation of Hyd. Cyan. Acid prepared & supplied by Dr Pugh". This journal entry raises a number of questions. Was Dr Pugh treating a condition which he thought merited that treatment or was it a ghastly mistake? Was Caroline Browne suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis? Was hydrocyanic acid an accepted treatment at that time? Did Mrs Browne take the wrong dose? Was an incorrect concentration of the drug prepared by Dr Pugh? Did he use the wrong pharmacopoeia in preparing the hydrocyanic acid? Why was there no inquest? Only some of these questions can be answered.

    Dr. José Félix Patiño como Presidente de la Academia Nacional de Medicina.

    Señores Académicos, señoras, señores:

    (Santafé de Bogotá, marzo 19 de 1998


    Como un "Fenómeno del Niño" y con el ímpetu emocional de esas sagas cíclicas que nos recordara
    vívidamente "Cien Años de Soledad" se repite, a los ocho años, una ceremonia en que dos de sus
    actores son los mismos, sólo que con orden inverso. Esta vez un hombre salido de las filas académicas, sin otro mérito que su capacidad de reconocimiento y afecto, tiene como honroso encargo pronunciar el discurso de orden en la posesión de José Félix Patiño como Presidente de la Academia Nacional de Medicina para los dos últimos años del milenio, rodeado de una dignísima Junta Directiva y sucediendo a otro hombre de cualidades eximias, que ha dirigido uno de los cuatrienios más ilustres por
    los que haya pasado la corporación.

    En esa otra época, 1990, fue un académico ya cargado de honores y de merecimientos quien pronunciara gallardamente el discurso de orden durante el acto de mi posesión como Presidente, en el paraninfo de la Academia Colombiana de la Lengua.
    Denominador común era y sigue siendo el mutuo bagaje de una amistad ininterrumpida de más de
    cuarenta años, que es el que me lleva a pronunciar estas palabras, cargadas como nunca de admiración, de respeto y de cariño.

    Porque la nutrida votación que llevó al académico Patiño a salir electo con el 95% de los votos,
    fenómeno casi nunca antes visto en los anales de nuestra venerable Academia, no es sino la expresión
    unánime de confianza por un hombre que, ya alcanzada la "edad bíblica" --como él mismo
    lo dijera en sus vivaces memorias del año pasado- conserva la chispa de su infatigable intelecto,
    siempre ávido para enseñar y aprender; y mantiene la integridad física y el ánimo del cirujano de

  6. Substitution of the burning PRIOR SSB 10 for SSB7 in the Furnace 10 of the Company Major Ernesto Che Guevara

    Ivett María Ramírez-Pérez

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available One of the fundamental causes of massive destruction of chambers and vaults in the Furnace of Reduction at the Ernesto Che Guevara Factory is due to operate the combustion chambers with excess of contribution of heat, causing that the flame of very high temperature penetrates into the homes, affecting the throats of the chambers, the vaults, teeth and arms. The burners current are Prior SSB10. In this paper is demonstrated that the burning Prior SSB 10 have double productivity that the SSB 7 with the same quantity of air to the burner. It is evaluated the substitution of the burning Prior SSB 10 by SSB 7 on the operation of the Furnace of Reduction No. 10 at the Ernesto Che Guevara (ECG Factory. Demonstrating that the change not produce variations in the operation.

    Nérida Rodríguez Oliva

    2009-06-01

    Full Text Available Introduction and Objectives: The appearance of nosocomial bacterial resistance represents a problem of growing concern because it largely affects the evolution of patients and the health resources devoted to it. The objective of this work was to determine the most common germs and their microbial resistance. Methods: A descriptive retrospective study was carried out analyzing the result of the isolation of germs from all type of secretions and from the blood cultures of a group ofpatients hospitalized at the Ernesto Che Guevara Cardiology Hospital in a five year period. Results: A total of 397 strains were isolated, 77 Staphylococcus aureus and 320 Enterobacteriaceae. The former presented 100% resistance to penicillin. The Staphylococcus sensitive to methicillin presented 4.9 % resistance to cotrimoxazole and gentamicin. The strains resistant to methicillin or oxacillin had a high resistance to gentamicin (87.5 % and ciprofloxacin (81.2 %, a medium resistance to cefazolin and oxacilline (20.5 %, and just 12.5 percent resistance to cotrimoxazole. Conclusions: the Staphylococcus aureus and the Enterobacteriaceae were the most common germs. The preoperative prophylaxis in these patients must not be done with cefazolin as a routine because the staphylococci resistant to methicillin or oxacillin have influence on other antimicrobials.

    We present the first Gaia data release, Gaia DR1, consisting of astrometry and photometry for over 1 billion sources brighter than magnitude 20.7 in the white-light photometric band G of Gaia. The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) processed the raw measurements collected with the Gaia instruments during the first 14 months of the mission, and turned these into an astrometric and photometric catalogue. Gaia DR1 consists of three parts: an astrometric data set which contains the positions, parallaxes, and mean proper motions for about 2 million of the brightest stars in common with the Hipparcos and Tycho-2 catalogues (the primary astrometric data set) and the positions for an additional 1.1 billion sources (the secondary astrometric data set). The primary set forms the realisation of the Tycho-Gaia Astrometric Solution (TGAS). The second part of Gaia DR1 is the photometric data set, which contains the mean G-band magnitudes for all sources. The third part consists of the G-band light curves and the characteristics of 3000 Cepheid and RR Lyrae stars observed at high cadence around the south ecliptic pole. The positions and proper motions in the astrometric data set are given in a reference frame that is aligned with the International Celestial Reference Frame (ICRF) to better than 0.1 mas at epoch J2015.0, and non-rotating with respect to the ICRF to within 0.03 mas yr^-1. For the primary astrometric data set, the typical standard error for the positions and parallaxes is about 0.3 mas, while for the proper motions the typical standard error is about 1 mas yr^-1. Whereas it has been suggested in Gaia Collaboration et al. (2016a) that a systematic component of ∼0.3 mas should be 'added' (in quadrature) to the parallax uncertainties, Brown (2017) clarifies that reported parallax standard errors already include local systematics as a result of the calibration of the TGAS parallax uncertainties by comparison to Hipparcos parallaxes.

    Full Text Available In the early twentieth century, Interior Design resulted from the work of architects, decora - tors, painters and carvers. Although then integrated into the world of decorative arts, we believe that already existed as a profession regulated by a coherent network design principles and the under - standing of interior space as global web of relationships established between plans, ornament, light - ing and furniture solutions. At the end of the previous century, before the need for a reform of industrial training, the Portuguese Government opened a tender for hiring of foreign teachers. We emphasize the role of Ernesto Korrodi (1870-1944. His works arise from an attitude paradoxically modern and eclectic, leaning one hand on a reinterpretation of solutions referenced in the medieval period or the Renaissance, on the other, based on formulas from Arts and Crafts movement, Art Nouveau or Secession. In his projects certain rooms and hierarchies remain, but these are intersect with the needs aroused by technical innovations, which causes an attempt to answer to the emergence of new func - tions and features in the house, along with the hygienists demands of the moment. This article consists in the analysis of Bouhon home, located in the city of Covilhã, Portugal. If Art Nouveau is visible in the elevations, inside we find a cleaner space, marked by decorative notes which we can find in tiles and embedded in the stucco or coffered ceilings. The ornament thus contributes to the dignity of the walls, wainscots and ceiling plans, assuming a key role in the spatial composition.

    Full Text Available Notre travail propose une approche du roman Le Tunnel de Ernesto Sábato par le biais de quelques concepts proposés par la théorie de la réception, dans la lignée Umberto Eco et Maria Corti. Selon nous, le roman présente l’histoire d’une communication déroulée sur deux plans : l’un non-verbal, où la triade communicative est formée de Castel peintre – sa peinture la Maternidad – les possibles consommateurs de son art et l’autre, verbal, où la communication comprend Castel scripteur – les pages de sa confession – les possibles lecteurs de son texte. Nous montrons que, dans les deux démarches communicatives, Castel cherche ce que Umberto Eco appelle un « lecteur idéal », premièrement dans María, la femme pour laquelle il développe une passion obsessive et ensuite dans au moins une personne qui puisse le comprendre. L’échec de la communication, dans les deux cas, est entraîné par le fait que le producteur Castel ne cherche pas un « lecteur idéal » qui actualise les virtualités du message, mais un lecteur qui puisse actualises ses intentions d’auteur empirique. L’échec de la communication est finalement le motif pour lequel le producteur ne peut pas sortir du tunnel de sa solitude.

    El otro gran pilar de la endocrinología y de la Asociación fue Jaime Cortázar, muerto a comienzos de este mes, el mismo día de Ronald Reagan y casi con los mismos años de ausencia del mundo cognoscitivo que afectaron al presidente norteamericano. Para mi formación Jaime fue más que pilar una brújula y un orientador y un apoyo en esos momentos en que uno se ve forzado a pasar de la adolescencia del pregrado a la madurez de la vida profesional. Mi amistad y mi devoción por él la he dejado consignada en varios de mis libros y en muchos de mis escritos. Mario Sánchez en su prólogo y Alfredo en su libro consagran cómo ellos dos, pero yo diría que sobre todo Jaime, se precuparon por hacer de la diabetes una preocupación nacional y para ello llevarla precozmente a los estrados políticos. Lo mismo que se está haciendo ahora, medio siglo después, pero sin la sencillez y la diafanidad que caracterizaron a nuestros pioneros. Jaime aprovechó su reciente designación como Director del Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, en 1955, para visitar continuamente el Ejecutivo y el Legislativo y hacer conocer el problema y promulgar los decretos que apoyaran el Comité Nacional de Lucha contra la Diabetes, que vió su luz ese año y cuya presidencia ocupó.

    The elderly adult patient is characterized in the Unidad de Incontinencia Urinaria of the Hospital Nacional de Geriatria 'Dr. Raul Blanco Cervantes', during the period between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. The total revision was 513 clinical records of patients treated for the first time in the Urinary Incontinence Unit in the established period. 228 of the cases were excluded. A final sample of 285 patients aged 76 years on average is studied, the predominance is the female sex and the state is widowhood, schooling is Aged 6 and residing in San Jose. In addition, partial dependent patients BLFA (Basic Life Activities) and IALF (Instrumental Activities of Life) are included, in normal cognitive condition according to schooling by MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination) and with risk of depression. As comorbidity they have presented mainly AHT (Arterial hypertension), DM (Diabetes Mellitus) and depression with associated obesity. The patients studied have consumed at least 2 medications simultaneously and usually have had a previous surgical history. Women who have had gynecological obstetric records of pregnancies and births were found to be unrelated to some type of incontinence. Patients have presented defects of the pelvic floor, such as cystocele and rectocele, in men increased prostate size. The most prevalent urinary incontinence has been the mixed, finding association by gender, in women is given more mixed urinary incontinence, followed by stress urinary incontinence; In men, urgent urinary incontinence and urinary incontinence due to overflow. Patients are sent to treatment with electrostimulation of pelvic floor and completed sessions, have shown an improvement in incontinence and quality of life. A more detailed evaluation of the older adult and to evaluate urinary incontinence could give greater results of the capture of patients with positive repercussion in the patient's quality of life.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Goossens, Darren

    2009-03-01

    This issue of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has been assembled to recognize the valuable contribution of Dr Trevor J Hicks to the field of neutron scattering and magnetism. Trevor began his study of magnetism as a PhD student at Monash University in Melbourne in the early 1960s, working with Professor Jack Smith. From the very beginning magnetism in alloys, and disordered systems in general, became a key aspect of his career. After a postdoctoral position at Harwell working with Dr Graeme Low Trevor returned to Australia and took up a position with Monash. He soon became a key figure in developing the capability for neutron scattering using the HIFAR reactor at the Australian Atomic Energy Commission, now the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, ANSTO. The instrumentation was always developed to further his studies of magnetism. The development of polarization analysis measurements of diffuse magnetic scattering, first using iron filters and then his own design of supermirror benders for beam polarization, took place through the 1970s, 1980s and into the 1990s. Throughout this time, Trevor mentored a series of PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, many of whom have contributed to this issue (and, indeed, guest edited it). As befits a scientist and university academic for whom teaching has always been important, Trevor has not only created a strong body of significant research, he has also made a major contribution to preparing several generations of neutron scattering scientists, and this issue reflects that. When I approached Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter with a proposal for an issue in honour of Trevor, the response was immediate and positive. It is with great pleasure that I present the result of that proposal. The great diversity of the content, all centred on neutron scattering and magnetism, reflects the breadth of Trevor's own career and of the scientists with whom he has interacted. Finally, I would like to make some

Así, se comienza describiendo y analizando la sistematización propuesta por Ambos para una parte general del derecho penal internacional, luego se analiza la tortura como crimen contra la humanidad, sujeto a las reglas del derecho penal internacional. En este apartado se determinan sus elementos principales (el carácter masivo y sistemático, el Tribunal competente en Chile para conocer de estas causas y el procedimiento aplicable. A continuación se describen los hechos, tal y como se dieron a conocer en el Informe Valech, que permiten concluir que en Chile se aplicó la tortura de manera masiva y sistemática durante el régimen militar, favorecida por éste, mediante el establecimiento de una "maquinaria" de represión "legalizada". Enseguida, se determina la existencia de una responsabilidad penal internacional individual derivada de estos hechos, para, a continuación, pasar a analizar los principales problemas de la parte general del derecho penal internacional que se presentarían en el caso de juzgarse tales responsabilidades individuales, siguiendo el esquema de análisis en dos niveles propuesto por Kai Ambos, a saber, discutiendo primero los presupuestos objetivos y subjetivos de esa responsabilidad, para finalizar analizando las principales defensas que podrían oponerse por los eventuales acusados.This article reviews Prof. Dr. Kai Ambos' book, Der Allgemeine Teil des Völkerstrafrechts, and proposes the application of the main results of this book to the possible trial of the acts of massive and systematic torture carried out

      Full Text Available We analyze what we call the novel of mourning in opposition to the novel of historical memory. While both assume a critical position with respect to the violence of the 20th century in Spain, they differ in how they deal with the losses of the past. The novel of historical memory, influenced by the internationalization of memory discourses and movements, seeks to combat the imposed forgetting through a literary recovery of forgotten cases from the past. The novel of mourning, however, seeks to break this dichotomy between forgetting/memory, understanding that the losses of the past are unrecoverable and that a more just future is only achievable by recognizing the past’s tragic nature: more than a (reopening or closing of wounds, it means living with them, also permitting a way of relating to other tragedies that would otherwise be foreign to us. As an example we analyze Ernesto Pérez Zúñiga’s Santo Diablo (2004.

Tiravam parte de sua força do fato de remeterem a rituais de cura com ayahuasca dos Huni Kuin (Kaxinawa. Observa-se certo paralelismo entre essa conquista de espaço para a presença indígena no sistema das artes e a chegada dos índios ao circuito urbano da ayahuasca. A circulação de novas formas de xamanismo, de consumo da ayahuasca, de objetos artísticos e performances, em redes nacionais e internacionais, atesta o vigor e a capacidade de adaptação das práticas culturais indígenas, além de representar possibilidades para diálogos transculturais. Ao mesmo tempo, esbarra em desafios espinhosos, como as proibições legais relativas ao uso da ayahuasca, a dificuldade de proteger a propriedade intelectual tradicional e a potencial reificação de identidades. O presente texto partirá da colaboração de Neto com os Huni Kuin para refletir sobre estas e outras questões.

      2008-01-01

      In this essay Dr Valter Rukavina (Rijeka 1896-1972), excellent specialist in infectious diseases and professor of the Rijeka University School of Medicine, is presented as successful amateur painter. He had been refining his talent through relentless practice since the school days, complementing it with skills and advice from established painters he associated with. He favoured figurative, realistic and somewhat romantic expression for his themes such as coastal landscapes, marinas, Quarnero sceneries, still life in tempera or oil, and drawings in ink or sepia. Despite partial colour blindness, he successfully used colour. He featured in a number of group exhibitions such as that of amateur painters of Rijeka in 1950, of painters physicians of Yugoslavia (Zagreb, 1956), in the Second International Exhibition of Contemporary Art (Florence, 1964), exhibition of the Rijeka branch of the Croatian Association of Visual Artists (Belgrade, 1966), and the 1969 exhibition in Opatija. His native city hosted two one-man exhibitions, the first retrospective in 1971, while he was still alive, and the second posthumous in 2007, with a good selection of his life's work.

It also analyses the effects this re-articulation produced in the identity of the Peronist movement. I seek therewith to explain how it was possible to maintain the Peronist identitary ties, within a context of socio-economical policies that were profoundly different from the ones that were previously proclaimed and implemented by Perón between 1946 and 1955. Therefore I analyse the context in which Menemí’s discourse emerged and its entailment with other discourses that began to prevail during that period.//El articulo utiliza herramientas provenientes de la obra de Ernesto Laclau y Slavoj Zizek, para analizar la forma en la que el presidente argentino Carlos Menem (1989-1999 rearticuló el discurso peronista, y los efectos que dicha rearticulación produjo en la identidad del movimiento peronista.

      rhTRAIL is a therapeutic agent, derived from the TRAIL cytokine, which induces apoptosis in cancer cells by activating the membrane death receptors 4 and 5 (DR4 and DR5). Here, we investigated each receptor's contribution to rhTRAIL sensitivity and rhTRAIL resistance. We assessed whether agonistic DR4 or DR5 antibodies could be used to circumvent rhTRAIL resistance, alone or in combination with various chemotherapies. Our study was performed in an isogenic model comprised of the SW948 human colon carcinoma cell line and its rhTRAIL resistant sub-line SW948-TR. Effects of rhTRAIL and agonistic DR4/DR5 antibodies on cell viability were measured using MTT assays and identification of morphological changes characteristic of apoptosis, after acridine orange staining. Sensitivity to the different death receptor ligands was stimulated using pretreatment with the cytokine IFN-gamma and the proteasome inhibitor MG-132. To investigate the mechanisms underlying the changes in rhTRAIL sensitivity, alterations in expression levels of targets of interest were measured by Western blot analysis. Co-immunoprecipitation was used to determine the composition of the death-inducing signalling complex at the cell membrane. SW948 cells were sensitive to all three of the DR-targeting agents tested, although the agonistic DR5 antibody induced only weak caspase 8 cleavage and limited apoptosis. Surprisingly, agonistic DR4 and DR5 antibodies induced equivalent DISC formation and caspase 8 cleavage at the level of their individual receptors, suggesting impairment of further caspase 8 processing upon DR5 stimulation. SW948-TR cells were cross-resistant to all DR-targeting agents as a result of decreased caspase 8 expression levels. Caspase 8 protein expression was restored by MG-132 and IFN-gamma pretreatment, which also re-established sensitivity to rhTRAIL and agonistic DR4 antibody in SW948-TR. Surprisingly, MG-132 but not IFN-gamma could also increase DR5-mediated apoptosis in SW948

      After some initial reluctance, nowadays transition from conventional analogue-to-digital radiographic technique is realized in the vast majority of institutions. The eventual triumph of digital over conventional technique is related to its undoubted advantages with respect to image quality and improved image handling in the context of a picture archiving and communication system. CR represents the older system, which matured over decades and experienced some important recent improvements with respect to dose efficiency and work-flow efficiency that strengthened its position. It represents a very versatile, economically attractive system that is equally suited for integrated systems as well as for cassette-based imaging at the bedside. DR systems offer superb image quality and realistic options for dose reduction based on their high dose efficiency. While for a long time only integrated systems were on the market suited for a large patient throughput, also mobile DR systems became recently available. While for the next years, it is likely that DR and CR systems will coexist, the long term perspective of CR will depend on further innovations with respect to dose efficiency and signal-to-noise characteristics while for DR economical aspects and broader availability of mobile systems will play a role.

The decommissioning work took place from summer 2004 until late autumn 2005. The components with the highest activity, the core vessel the recombiner and the piping and valves connected to these, were dismantled first by Danish Decommissioning's own technicians. Demolition of the control rod house and the biological shield as well as the removal of the floor in the reactor hall was carried out by an external demolition contractor. The building was emptied and left for other use. Clearance measurements of the building showed that radionuclide concentrations were everywhere below the clearance limit set by the Danish nuclear regulatory authorities. Furthermore, measurements on the surrounding area showed that there was no contamination that could be attributed to the operation and decommissioning of DR 1. (au)

      Population studies indicate that HLA-DR4 is implicated in the susceptibility of IDD. However, biochemical characterization of the serologically defined DR4 haplotype from normal individuals revealed five DR4 and three DQW3 molecular forms. Hence, in this study, they investigated the heterogeneity of the DR4 haplotype, using B-lymphoblastoid cell lines (B-LCL) generated from patients with IDD and seropositive for DR4. Class II molecules, metabolically labeled with 35 S-methionine, were immunoprecipitated with monoclonal antibodies specific for DR(L243), DQ(N297), DQW3(IVD12) or DR and DQ(SG465) and analyzed by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE). The isoelectrofocusing (IEF) conditions employed in this study allow representation only of the DR4 haplotype from either DR3/4 or DR4/4 cell lines. The analysis of six different DR4 haplotypes from seven IDD patients, revealed the presence of two DR4 β and two DQW3 β chains. Three of the six DR4 β haplotypes analyzed shared the same DR4 β chain and three others shared a different one. Additionally five of the six haplotypes shared a different one. Additionally five of the six haplotypes shared the same DQW3 β chain and only one was carrying a different one. Different combinations of the two DR4 and two DQW3 β chains constitute three distinct patterns of DR4 haplotypes. These results suggest the prevalence of a DQW3 β chain in the small sample of IDD patients studied. Studies of a large number of patients should clarify whether IDD is associated with unique variants of DR4 or DQW3 β chains

In particular the definition, design, development, validation and provision of a software package for the data processing of photometrically variable objects. Data Processing Centre Geneva (DPCG) responsibilities cover all issues related to the computational part of the CU7 analysis. These span: hardware provisioning, including selection, deployment and optimisation of suitable hardware, choosing and developing software architecture, defining data and scientific workflows as well as operational activities such as configuration management, data import, time series reconstruction, storage and processing handling, visualisation and data export. CU7/DPCG is also responsible for interaction with other DPCs and CUs, software and programming training for the CU7 members, scientific software quality control and management of software and data lifecycle. Details about the specific data treatment steps of the Gaia DR1 data products are found in Eyer et al. (2017) and are not repeated here. The variability content of the Gaia DR1 focusses on a subsample of Cepheids and RR Lyrae stars around the South ecliptic pole, showcasing the performance of the Gaia photometry with respect to variable objects.

      It is impossible for the Japanese fusion community, in particular for those associated with the ITER Project,to hear about the retirement of Dr. Michel Huguet without a great amount of gratitude, recollections, warm feelings, and the inevitable sadness. He was a first-generation ITER EDA person. Three months after the signing of the ITER EDA Agreement in July 1992, he arrived at the Naka Joint Work Site as Deputy Director of the ITER Central Team and Head of the site and he stayed for more than ten years. The Naka site was for design and technical co-ordination in the areas of magnets, plasma control and heating, plant systems, buildings, etc. Dr. Huguet was considered a highly qualified person to fill the position, since he had been successful as Deputy Director in similar areas in the JET Joint Undertaking. During the ITER EDA he co-ordinated the R and D activities in areas for which the Naka Joint Work Site was responsible. These R and D results permitted the completion of the ITER design in the above areas under his supervision. We thank Dr. Huguet for his achievements and contributions to ITER. He played a crucial role in establishing the convincing scientific and technical basis for ITER implementation. This was only made possible by his broad abilities and his dedication to the cause of fusion in general and ITER in particular

      This report describes the work of dismantling and demolishing reactor DR 2, the waste volumes generated, the health physical conditions and the clearance procedures used for removed elements and waste. Since the ultimate goal for the decommissioning project was not clearance of the building, but downgrading the radiological classification of the building with a view to converting it to further nuclear use, this report documents how the lower classification was achieved and the known occurrence of remaining activity. The report emphasises some of the deliberations made and describes the lessons learned through this decommissioning project. The report also intends to contribute towards the technical basis and experience basis for further decommissioning of the nuclear facilities in Denmark. (au)

      This interview with Professor Dr. Daniel Spreng of the Center for Energy Policy and Economics (CEPE) in Zuerich, Switzerland, deals with questions concerning research in the area of energy economics. In particular, the situation in Switzerland, where mains-connected sources of energy such as electricity and gas play an important role in energy supply, is looked at in the light of market liberalisation. Various approaches to the liberalisation of gas and electricity systems are discussed and the costs of liberalised supply systems are compared with those of the present monopolistic situation. Also, energy reserves and the use of the gas distribution system in a future hydrogen-based energy supply scenario are looked at. Projects currently being worked on at the CEPE are reviewed

      This chapter of the Gaia DR2 documentation describes the models and processing steps used for the astrometric core solution, namely, the Astrometric Global Iterative Solution (AGIS). The inputs to this solution rely heavily on the basic observables (or astrometric elementaries) which have been pre-processed and discussed in Chapter 2, the results of which were published in Fabricius et al. (2016). The models consist of reference systems and time scales; assumed linear stellar motion and relativistic light deflection; in addition to fundamental constants and the transformation of coordinate systems. Higher level inputs such as: planetary and solar system ephemeris; Gaia tracking and orbit information; initial quasar catalogues and BAM data are all needed for the processing described here. The astrometric calibration models are outlined followed by the details processing steps which give AGIS its name. We also present a basic quality assessment and validation of the scientific results (for details, see Lindegren et al. 2018).

      A description of the cold neutron source in DR 3 is given. The moderator of the cold neutron source is supercritical hydrogen at about 30degK and 15 bar abs. The necessary cooling capacity is supplied by two Philips Stirling B20 cryogenerators. The hydrogen is circulated between the cryogenerators and the in-pile moderator chamber by small fans. The safety of the facility is based on the use of triple containment preventing contact between hydrogen and air. The triple containment is achieved by enclosing the high vacuum system, surrounging the hydrogen system, in a helium blanket. The achieved spectrum of the thermal neutron flux and the gain factor are given as well as the experience from more than 5 years of operation. Finally some work on extension of the facility to operate two cold sources is reported. (author)

      In September 1958 the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr was stabbed and nearly assassinated. Surgeons at Harlem Hospital in New York City removed a 17.8-cm (7-in)-long letter opener from Dr King's chest. Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Goldie Brangman remembers this event because she participated in Dr King's anesthetic. This article correlates Brangman's memories with published accounts of the event. It also places the event within the context of the modern civil rights movement that Dr King led.

      The BIMA array is used to map the 95-GHz 8(0) to 7 1A(+) transition of methanol and the 98-GHz J = 2-1 transition of CS toward the DR 21(OH) and DR 21 star-forming regions. Several strong methanol masers were found. The positions of the two brightest masers were measured with an accuracy of about + or - 0.3 arcsec. Toward DR 21(OH), the positions, velocities, and line shapes of the 95 GHz masers are in excellent agreement with those of the 84-GHz 5(-1) to 4 () methanol masers previously mapped by Batrla and Menten (1988), demonstrating that maser emission in both transitions originates from the same clumps of gas. The methanol masers are offset from CS emission peaks and from other known infrared and maser sources; they may possibly be clustered along the interface between outflows, traced by shock-excited H2 emission, and dense ambient gas, traced by CS emission. 25 refs

Se observó especialmente la manera en que los rasgos de la literatura fantástica y de terror fueron transformados al ser llevados a la pantalla grande. Se concluye que la adaptación de obras literarias al lenguaje cinematográfico (transposición constituye un proceso cargado de valor artístico y es el resultado de una serie de decisiones que no necesariamente buscan la fidelidad al texto original.

      Herbert James Hall, MD (1870-1923), was a pioneer in the systematic and organized study of occupation as therapy for persons with nervous and mental disorders that he called the "work cure." He began his work in 1904 during the early years of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the United States. His primary interest was the disorder neurasthenia, a condition with many symptoms including chronic fatigue, stress, and inability to work or perform everyday tasks. The prevailing treatment of the day was absolute bed rest known as the "rest cure." Hall believed that neurasthenia was not caused by overwork but by faulty living habits that could be corrected through an ordered life schedule and selected occupations. He identified several principles of therapy that are still used today including graded activity and energy conservation. Dr. Adolph Meyer credits Hall for organizing the ideas on the therapeutic use of occupation (Meyer, 1922). Hall also provided the name American Occupational Therapy Association for the professional organization and served as the fourth president. For his many contributions to the profession Hall deserves to be recognized as a major contributor to the development and organization of occupational therapy.

      As the title of my paper indicates, Dr. Rudolph Binion was my professor, mentor, and a leading psychohistorian. My paper in memoriam to Rudolph Binion is intended as both a retrospective and an introspective account of my relationship with him, as he had a pivotal influence on me when he was my professor at Columbia University. His help and influence continued after I left graduate school. In my paper I also deal with the enormous stresses of navigating through graduate school, for those students whose goal was to earn the Ph.D. degree. Some examinations were dreaded, For Example The "Examination in Subjects," popularly called the "Oral Exam." The "incubation" period was long indeed, frequently averaging nearly ten years, and it was an ordeal, as the rate of attrition was very high. There is then also the question of "ego strength" and that of "transference" toward the professor. Graduate school is indeed a long and strenuous challenge. I took a seminar in modern French history, a requirement for the Master's degree with Professor Binion, which was consequential for me, as he taught me to be objective in writing history. Professor Binion was a demanding and outstanding teacher.

      We present a new catalog of spectroscopically confirmed white dwarf stars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 spectroscopic catalog. We find 20,407 white dwarf spectra, representing 19,712 stars, and provide atmospheric model fits to 14,120 DA and 1011 DB white dwarf spectra from 12,843 and 923 stars, respectively. These numbers represent more than a factor of two increase in the total number of white dwarf stars from the previous SDSS white dwarf catalogs based on DR4 data. Our distribution of subtypes varies from previous catalogs due to our more conservative, manual classifications of each star in our catalog, supplementing our automatic fits. In particular, we find a large number of magnetic white dwarf stars whose small Zeeman splittings mimic increased Stark broadening that would otherwise result in an overestimated log g if fit as a non-magnetic white dwarf. We calculate mean DA and DB masses for our clean, non-magnetic sample and find the DB mean mass is statistically larger than that for the DAs.

      Seventy-four American white thyroid cancer patients were typed for HLA-A, B, and DR antigens. A significant increase in HLA-DR7 was found in the nonradiation-associated thyroid cancer patients (42.5%, 20/47 cases), compared to 22.8% of 979 normal controls. The association is stronger in the follicular and mixed papillary-follicular subgroup (52.0%, 13/25 cases, P corrected less than 0.01). The occurrence of various malignancies in family members was found in 57.9% of HLA-DR7 positive patients, versus 20% of HLA-DR7 negative patients, in a retrospective record review. Although the frequency of HLA-DR7 was not increased in the radiation-associated thyroid cancer patients (22.2%, 6/27 cases), the interval from the irradiation date to the onset date of thyroid cancer was shorter in HLA-DR7 positive cases (17.3 +/- 6.2 years) than in HLA-DR7 negative patients (29.4 +/- 11.5 years). This data suggest that HLA-DR7 is associated with and may influence development of thyroid cancer

More specifically, we examine the relation between the frames of meaning which order and project that work, i.e. the prologue by Rodolfo Lenz and the preface by Father Ernesto de Moesbach, and the ethnographical account of the life and customs of the Mapuche in the words of Pascual Coña. We also examine the use of translation as a practice capable of valuing or disregarding the material translated, in this case the biography of lonko [chief] Pascual Coña, paying special attention to how the socio-cultural practices and cultural authorities are treated as a way of accessing the Mapuche world view. We consider that this type of analysis, which refers to a dialectic between different narratives tensioned by power relations, allows us to understand contextually situated interethnic relations.

      With the celebration of the centenary of the birth of Dr. Luis Cifuentes Delatte, due to his great scientific personality, we want to emphasize two features that, taken from his works and memories, we consider have not been emphasized enough: his role as historian of urology, both for the histories he narrated of his life experiences and the historical exposition of several pathologies, and also his teaching as professor of several generations of urologists, with the objective of trying to get to know his great human quality as he demonstrated over his life and showed in his writings. We review his books and works, lectures and published papers, in addition the news about his person we have collected from the media, and after analysis, mainly of his memories, we extract data reflecting his personality, and they way he thought and behaved. Since he was young he went with his father to the international urology meetings where he met a great number of personalities in the World of Urology; he extended his training with them, and later on they got to have a great relationship. He travelled around Europe and United States before and after Second World War, respectively, with stays in the most prestigious centers, which he described meticulously. He also reported his activity during the first two years he directed the Department of Urology at the Hospital La Princesa in Madrid and cited the series of collaborators he had. In his research works he made an ample description of historical development as introduction to the various pathologies he analyzed in depth. The reading of the narration of his trips, that he did in the convulse International time he lived, offers details which enable us to know firsthand the situation of urology and the human side of the actors he had relation with, and the social life they had, in addition to data about their families and daily life. As a researcher in transcendental chapters in urological pathology we emphasize his historical

      COMUNICADO

      Junta Directiva Academia Nacional de Medicina de Colombia

      La reciente sentencia de la Sala de Casación Penal de la Corte Suprema de Justicia, en la que se condena de manera definitiva al médico patólogo José Edgar Duque Echeverry por el delito de "Lesiones personales culposas" y se confirma la sanción que incluye prisión de seis meses, privación del derecho de ejercer la profesión por el término de 24 meses y una multa equivalente al valor de 6,932 salarios mínimos mensuales legales vigentes, sentencia de la Honorable Corte Suprema de Justicia, contra la que no procede ningún recurso en el ámbito de la justicia en el país, constituye un ejemplo de la forma como se podría estar criminalizando el ejercicio de la medicina en Colombia.

      La medicina es arte y ciencia; como tal, durante su ejercicio se pueden presentar innumerables situaciones en las que no siempre será posible haber tenido certeza en la decisión, o en el diagnóstico, o en el tratamiento; esto es el "acto médico"; acto que al analizarse de forma retrospectiva puede dar otra interpretación o verdad generando entonces lo que se considera o define como un error en la práctica médica. Lo anterior ha existido y seguirá existiendo porque la medicina es ejercida por seres humanos y en toda acción humana existe margen o posibilidad de error; en este ejercicio tan delicado, el médico siempre utilizará todos los medios a su alcance y expondrá lo mejor de su conocimiento. Procurará por principios, por su formación profesional, por su ética y su humanismo la intención de lograr los mejores resultados en la salud de su paciente. Nunca en el acto médico habrá el dolo de realizar el mal o perjuicio hacia el paciente.

      El error diagnóstico, susceptible de ocurrir en el ejercicio de la medicina, no debería ser criminalizado y debería ser juzgado por los mismos profesionales médicos (pares en los

      1995-03-01

      The 105-DR Large Sodium Fire Facility (LSFF), which was operated 1972-1986, was a research laboratory that occupied the former ventilation supply room on the SW side of the 105-DR Reactor Facility. (The 105-DR defense reactor was shut down in 1964.) LSFF was used to investigate fire and safety aspects of large sodium or other metal alkali fires in the LMFBR facilities; it was also used to store and treat alkali metal waste. This closure plan presents a description of the unit, the history of the waste managed, and the procedures that will be followed to close the LSFF as an Alkali Metal Treatment Facility. No future use of LSFF is expected. It is located within the 100-DR-2 (source) and 100-HR-3 (groundwater) operable units, which will be addressed through the RCRA facility investigation/corrective measures study process

      2017-09-01

      Female and male adolescents in Germany are increasingly using the Internet to find information about sexuality and sexual health. This review paper summarizes what we know about the status quo of online sexuality education in Germany.Based on a systematic literature review including 40 papers from international, peer-reviewed journals spanning 2010-2017, this paper first describes different aspects of the sexuality-related online search behavior of adolescents: its prevalence, predictors, topics and contexts. One main finding is the fact that adolescents use a computer or smartphone to type their sexuality-related questions into the search engine Google or the search engine of the video platform YouTube.Based on 54 online searches, this paper subsequently presents the kind of sexuality-related online content adolescents find if they ask "Dr. Google" for sexual advice; a collection of 1236 authentic sexuality-related questions of adolescents was used for this analysis. It turned out that online sexuality education offered by leading professional organizations like the BZgA ("Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung") or pro familia was nearly invisible, while numerous other providers of online sex education consistently appeared in the top Google search results. Among them were the "Dr. Sommer" team of the youth magazine Bravo; online healthcare and advice portals; online forums; the online encyclopedia Wikipedia and, above all, sex education channels on YouTube. In this paper, the latter are presented in more detail for the first time.The third part of the paper addresses the quality of online sexual education over four main areas of quality evaluation. The presentation of the status quo ends with some recommendations both for future research and for sexuality education in practice.

      An autopsy was an important event in 17th century Holland. Autopsies were held in an 'anatomy theater' and performed according to a fixed protocol that often took up to 3 days to complete. Of the five group portraits painted by Rembrandt over the course of his career, two were anatomy lessons given by Dr. Tulp and Dr. Deyman. An examination of Rembrandt's painting Dr. Tulp's Anatomy Lesson (1632) and an X-ray image of the painting, as compared to other paintings of anatomy lessons from the same period, reveal interesting differences, such as positioning, and light and shadow. Not only was the autopsy not performed according to the usual protocol, but in this painting Rembrandt created a unique dramatic scene in his effort to tell a story. We suggest that Dr. Tulp and Rembrandt "modified" the painting of Dr. Tulp's anatomy lesson to emphasize Dr. Tulp's position as the greatest anatomist of his era--"Vesalius of Amsterdam," and as a way of demonstrating God's greatness by highlighting the hand as a symbol of the most glorious of God's creations.

      TV series such as "House MD", "Grey´s Anatomy" or "Emergency Room" are well perceived by medical students. Seminars featuring medical TV series such as "House MD" might serve as door-opener to attract medical students to learn more about rare diseases. The TV series "House MD" is troublesome for the main character Dr. House is an excellent diagnostician but at the same time a rather misanthropic person. Therefore, lecturing medicine with the help of "House MD" requires constant evaluation. From 2008 to 2016 we are using the well-known TV series "House MD" continuously to attract medical students and teach them about rare diseases as well as diagnostic strategies. We collected from 213 students a detailed questionnaire assessing their learning experience. 76.6% of our students (n = 157) reported to watching medical dramas on a regular basis. The Dr. House seminar was compared to traditional seminars and our students reported an improved learning effect (69.9%), better concentration (89.7%), higher motivation to participate (88.7%), and more fun (86.7%) (all pHouse's behavior quite critically. Likert assessment on a 5-point scale identified strong disagreement with Dr. House´s interpersonal skills in dealing with his colleagues (median = 1) and patients (median = 1). At the same time, the students strongly agreed with his outstanding diagnostic (median = 5) and therapeutic capabilities (median = 4). Medical students visiting a Dr. House teaching seminar are highly motivated to learn more about rare diseases. They were positively influenced by TV series such as Dr. House to improve their diagnostic and clinical skills. At the same time, they are critical enough not to see Dr. House as a role model for their own personality. Well performed medical TV shows such as Dr. House can successfully be used in an educational setting to motivate medical students to come into seminars to learn more about rare diseases.

      Aims: The first Gaia data release (Gaia DR1) provides 2191 ICRF2 sources with their positions in the auxiliary quasar solution and five astrometric parameters - positions, parallaxes, and proper motions - for stars in common between the Tycho-2 catalogue and Gaia in the joint Tycho-Gaia astrometric solution (TGAS). We aim to analyze the overall properties of Gaia DR1 reference frame. Methods: We compare quasar positions of the auxiliary quasar solution with ICRF2 sources using different samples and evaluate the influence on the Gaia DR1 reference frame owing to the Galactic aberration effect over the J2000.0-J2015.0 period. Then we estimate the global rotation between TGAS with Tycho-2 proper motion systems to investigate the property of the Gaia DR1 reference frame. Finally, the Galactic kinematics analysis using the K-M giant proper motions is performed to understand the property of Gaia DR1 reference frame. Results: The positional comparison between the auxiliary quasar solution and ICRF2 shows negligible orientation and validates the declination bias of -0.1mas in Gaia quasar positions with respect to ICRF2. Galactic aberration effect is thought to cause an offset 0.01mas of the Z axis direction of Gaia DR1 reference frame. The global rotation between TGAS and Tycho-2 proper motion systems, obtained by different samples, shows a much smaller value than the claimed value 0.24mas yr-1. For the Galactic kinematics analysis of the TGAS K-M giants, we find possible non-zero Galactic rotation components beyond the classical Oort constants: the rigid part ωYG = -0.38±0.15mas yr-1 and the differential part ω^primeYG = -0.29±0.19mas yr-1 around the YG axis of Galactic coordinates, which indicates possible residual rotation in Gaia DR1 reference frame or problems in the current Galactic kinematical model. Conclusions: The Gaia DR1 reference frame is well aligned to ICRF2, and the possible influence of the Galactic aberration effect should be taken into consideration

      Objective: To determine frequencies of HLA DR beta 1 alleles in rheumatoid arthritis in Pakistani patients. Study Design: Cross sectional / analytical study. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Immunology, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Rawalpindi in collaboration with Rheumatology departments of Military Hospital, Rawalpindi and Fauji Foundation Hospital, Rawalpindi, from January 2009 to January 2010. Methodology: HLA DR beta 1 genotyping of one hundred Pakistani patients, diagnosed as having RA as per American College of Rheumatology revised criteria 1987, was done. HLA DR beta 1 genotyping was carried out at allele group level (DR beta 1*01-DR beta 1*16) by sequence specific primers in RA patients. Comparison of HLA DR beta 1 allele frequencies between patients and control groups was made using Pearson's chi-square test to find possible association of HLA DR?1 alleles with RA in Pakistani rheumatoid patients. Results: HLA DR beta 1*04 was expressed with significantly increased frequency in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (p <0.05). HLA DR?1*11 was expressed statistically significantly more in control group as compared to rheumatoid patients indicating a possible protective effect. There was no statistically significant difference observed in frequencies of HLA DR beta 1 allele *01, DR beta 1 allele *03, DR beta 1 allele *07, DR beta 1 allele *08, DR beta 1 allele *09, DR beta 1 allele *10, DR beta 1 allele *12, DR beta 1 allele *13, DR beta 1 allele *14, DR?1 allele *15 and DR beta 1 allele *16 between patients and control groups. Conclusion: The identification of susceptible HLA DR beta 1 alleles in Pakistani RA patients may help physicians to make early decisions regarding initiation of early intensive therapy with disease modifying anti rheumatic medicines and biological agents decreasing disability in RA patients.

      1989-08-01

      Dr. William O. Coffee was an ophthalmologist who conducted an office and mail-order practice in the Midwest from the 1880s until 1927. His main stock in trade was a self-discovered absorption cure for a variety of ocular diseases, with particular emphasis on the medical cure of cataracts. Dr. Coffee's career was a checkered one, marked by dubious credentials, exuberant self-promotion, unlikely and exaggerated claims of medical successes, plagiarism, and rejection by the medical "establishment." Certain parallels may be drawn between his activities and some currently observed practices in ophthalmology.

      Sesión Solemne y Conjunta de la Academia Nacional de Medicina y la Sociedad Colombiana de Historia de la Medicina. 21 de noviembre de 1991.


      Señor ex-Presidente, Dr. Carlos Lleras Restrepo y señora;

      Señores académicos y miembros de la Sociedad histórica;
      Señoras, señores:

      Hace muchos años -tantos que yo tenía apenas quince- íbamos una tarde a bajar con mi padre a Villeta para reunirnos con el resto de la familia, cuando mencionó que con nosotros viajaría el Dr. Luis Patiño Camargo. Cuando le pregunté quién era nuestro acompañante, dijo: -Es un médico que sabe de todo, que conoce muy bienel país y que ha descubierto una enfermedad nueva para Colombia”.

      Cuando anochecía pasamos por Sasaima y se sentía ese aroma, inconfundible de nuestras tierras templadas; tímidamente pregunté a qué se debía y el Dr. Patiño me explicó que ese olor característico era el de un pasto o gramínea originaria del Africa, que prospera en las laderas andinas y que suele crecer a la vera de nuestros caminos. Recuerdo que durante el viaje hablaron con mi padre de muchos temas, llamándome la atención la propiedad con que se refería a las variadas plantas a lo largo del trayecto.

      Hoy, más de medio siglo después, vengo a evocar su memoria en representación de la Academia Nacional de Medicina y de la Sociedad Colombiana de Historia de la Medicina, que me han otorgado el privilegio, que agradezco muy de veras, de llevar la palabra en esta ocasión en que se conmemora y celebra

      The red light from the Light Emitting Diode (LED) probe shines through the fingers of Dr. Harry Whelan, a pediatric neurologist at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Dr. Whelan uses the long waves of light from the LED surgical probe to activate special drugs that kill brain tumors. Laser light previously has been used for this type of surgery, but the LED light illuminates through all nearby tissues, reaching parts of tumors that shorter wavelengths of laser light carnot. The new probe is safer because the longer wavelengths of light are cooler than the shorter wavelengths of laser light, making the LED less likely to injure normal brain tissue near the tumor. Also, it can be used for hours at a time while still remaining cool to the touch. The probe was developed for photodynamic cancer therapy under a NASA Small Business Innovative Research Program grant. The program is part of NASA's Technology Transfer Department at the Marshall Space Flight Center.

      About 60 years have passed since David Bates in a 1950 Physical Review Letter to the Editor first clarified the dissociative recombination mechanism (DR) of molecular ions and provided the conceptual basis for the process that plays an important role in the ionospheres of Earth and other planets, the interstellar medium, and electrical discharges. His visionary (and characteristically 'terse') thumbnail sketch of the DR mechanism only hinted at the subtleties that have kept atomic theorists and experimentalists busy for many years. In my talk, I will focus on experiments on N 2 + recombination, beginning with plasma afterglows, and then move on to the 'after'-afterglow period that is now dominated by the powerful storage-ring methods.

      The Hanford Site, located northwest of the city of Richland, Washington, houses reactors, chemical-separation systems, and related facilities used for the production of special nuclear materials, and activities associated with nuclear energy development. The 105-DR Large Sodium Fire Facility (LSFF), which was in operation from about 1972 to 1986, was a research laboratory that occupied the former ventilation supply room on the southwest side of the 105-DR Reactor facility. The LSFF was established to provide a means of investigating fire and safety aspects associated with large sodium or other metal alkali fires in the liquid metal fast breeder reactor (LMFBR) facilities. The 105-DR Reactor facility was designed and built in the 1950's and is located in the 100-D Area of the Hanford Site. The building housed the 105-DR defense reactor, which was shut down in 1964. The LSFF was initially used only for engineering-scale alkali metal reaction studies. In addition, the Fusion Safety Support Studies program sponsored intermediate-size safety reaction tests in the LSFF with lithium and lithium lead compounds. The facility has also been used to store and treat alkali metal waste, therefore the LSFF is subject to the regulatory requirements for the storage and treatment of dangerous waste. Closure will be conducted pursuant to the requirements of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-303-610. This closure plan presents a description of the facility, the history of waste managed, and the procedures that will be followed to close the LSFF as an Alkali Metal Treatment Facility.

      Fühner, Tim; Schnattinger, Thomas; Ardelean, Gheorghe; Erdmann, Andreas

      2007-03-01

      This paper introduces Dr.LiTHO, a research and development oriented lithography simulation environment developed at Fraunhofer IISB to flexibly integrate our simulation models into one coherent platform. We propose a light-weight approach to a lithography simulation environment: The use of a scripting (batch) language as an integration platform. Out of the great variety of different scripting languages, Python proved superior in many ways: It exhibits a good-natured learning-curve, it is efficient, available on virtually any platform, and provides sophisticated integration mechanisms for existing programs. In this paper, we will describe the steps, required to provide Python bindings for existing programs and to finally generate an integrated simulation environment. In addition, we will give a short introduction into selected software design demands associated with the development of such a framework. We will especially focus on testing and (both technical and user-oriented) documentation issues. Dr.LiTHO Python files contain not only all simulation parameter settings but also the simulation flow, providing maximum flexibility. In addition to relatively simple batch jobs, repetitive tasks can be pooled in libraries. And as Python is a full-blown programming language, users can add virtually any functionality, which is especially useful in the scope of simulation studies or optimization tasks, that often require masses of evaluations. Furthermore, we will give a short overview of the numerous existing Python packages. Several examples demonstrate the feasibility and productiveness of integrating Python packages into custom Dr.LiTHO scripts.

    11. Granice podmorskih prostora jadranskih država

      Full Text Available U ovome radu analiziraju se sve dosada utvrđene granice jadranskog podmorja kao i one koje tak valja utvrditi, posebice u svjetlu novih istraživanja njegovih prirodnih bogatstava. Uz Hrvatsku i Italiju, koje dijele najveći dio morskog dna i podzemlja u Jadranu, pravo na epikontinentski pojas imaju i Crna Gora te Albanija. Dvije jadranske države s kratkim obalama – Bosna i Hercegovina te Slovenija, države su u nepovoljnome geografskom položaju koje ne mogu imati epikontinentski pojas kao prirodni produžetak svoga kopnenog područja. Podmorski prostori tih država završavaju stoga na vanjskoj granici njihovih teritorijalnih mora. Osim razmatranja tih granica i sporazumno utvrđenih granica epikontinentskih pojaseva, autorice se kritički osvrću i na jednostrane akte Slovenije o proglašenju njezinoga epikontinentskog pojasa iz 2005. godine kao potpuno pravno neutemeljene akte. U središtu pozornosti ovoga rada je razmatranje granice koja dijeli podmorske prostore Hrvatske i Italije kao buduće granice dviju država i nad morskim dnom. Ta bi granična crta, u skladu s Konvencijom UN-a o pravu mora, trebala postati – jedinstvena morska granica njihovih epikontinentskih i gospodarskih pojaseva (odnosno ekološke zone Italije i zaštićenoga ekološko-ribolovnog pojasa Republike Hrvatske. Takva višefunkcionalna jedinstvena granična crta u najboljem je interesu pravne sigurnosti u svim načinima korištenja mora, a u međunarodnoj sudskoj i arbitražnoj praksi posljednjih desetljeća u potpunosti je zamijenila povlačenje različitih crta razgraničenja za više pojaseva u istome morskom prostoru. S obzirom na rezultate nedavno provedenih istraživanja potencijalnih nalazišta nafte i plina u južnom Jadranu, u radu se upozorava i na potrebu što skorijeg povlačenja crte bočnog razgraničenja epikontinentskih pojaseva Hrvatske i Crne Gore. Autorice analiziraju moguće pravce te nove granice, uzimajući u obzir znatno odstupanje od

      1986-12-01

      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.

      A well-characterized allergen of Lolium perenne (perennial rye grass) pollen, Lol p III, has been used as a model antigen to study the genetic control of the human immune response. Associations between HLA type and IgE or IgG antibody (Ab) responsiveness to Lol p III were studied in two groups of skin-test-positive Caucasoid adults (N = 135 and 67). We found by nonparametric and parametric analyses that immune responsiveness to Lol p III was significantly associated with HLA-DR3 and DR5. No association was found between any DQ type and immune responsiveness to Lol p III. Geometric mean IgE or IgG Ab levels to Lol p III were not different between B8+, DR3+ subjects and B8-, DR3+ subjects, showing that HLA-B8 had no influence on the association. Lol p III IgG Ab data obtained on subjects after grass antigen immunotherapy showed that 100% of DR3 subjects and 100% of DR5 subjects were Ab+. A comparison of all the available protein sequences of DRB gene products showed that the first hypervariable region of DR3 and DR5 (and DRw6), and no other region, contains the sequence Glu9-Tyr-Ser-Thr-Ser13. Our observations are consistent with the possibility that immune responsiveness to the allergen Lol p III is associated with this amino acid sequence in the first hypervariable region of the DR beta 1 polypeptide chain.

      Aims: The aim of the project is to improve our knowledge of the low-mass and low-metallicity population to investigate the influence of metallicity on the stellar (and substellar) mass function. Methods: We present the results of a photometric and proper motion search aimed at discovering ultracool subdwarfs in large-scale surveys. We employed and combined the Fifth Data Release (DR5) of the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) Large Area Survey (LAS) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 complemented with ancillary data from the Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS), the DEep Near-Infrared Survey (DENIS) and the SuperCOSMOS Sky Surveys (SSS). Results: The SDSS DR7 vs. UKIDSS LAS DR5 search returned a total of 32 ultracool subdwarf candidates, only two of which are recognised as a subdwarf in the literature. Twenty-seven candidates, including the two known ones, were followed-up spectroscopically in the optical between 600 and 1000 nm, thus covering strong spectral features indicative of low metallicity (e.g., CaH), 21 with the Very Large Telescope, one with the Nordic Optical Telescope, and five were extracted from the Sloan spectroscopic database to assess (or refute) their low-metal content. We confirm 20 candidates as subdwarfs, extreme subdwarfs, or ultra-subdwarfs with spectral types later than M5; this represents a success rate of ≥ 60%. Among those 20 new subdwarfs, we identify two early-L subdwarfs that are very likely located within 100 pc, which we propose as templates for future searches because they are the first examples of their subclass. Another seven sources are solar-metallicity M dwarfs with spectral types between M4 and M7 without Hα emission, suggesting that they are old M dwarfs. The remaining five candidates do not have spectroscopic follow-up yet; only one remains as a bona-fide ultracool subdwarf after revision of their proper motions. We assigned spectral types based on the current classification schemes and, when

      In this interview in Dr Fordham's 83rd year he describes how he started to work with children, and how Mrs Jung was supportive. He talks about the initial suspicion this interest generated in the wider Jungian community. He refers to his acceptance of and interest in the psychotic elements in child analysis and his transference-based approach to working with these elements. He reflects on his own birth, his work with evacuee children in hostels during the war years and the politics of supervision. He describes the core Jungian concepts which underpinned his work and the theoretical differences from the Kleinian and Anna Freudian positions.

      Dr. Mainte, an integrated simulator for maintenance optimization of LWRs (Light Water Reactors) has been developed based on PFM (Probabilistic Fracture Mechanics) analyses. The concept of the simulator is to provide a decision-making system to optimize maintenance activities for representative components and piping systems in nuclear power plants totally and quantitatively in terms of safety, availability and economic efficiency, environmental impact and social acceptance. For the further improvement of the safety and availability, the effect of human error and its reduction on the optimization of plant maintenance activities and approaches of reducing it have been studied.

      Señoras y señores:

      Estoy profundamente conmovido y emocionado, al escuchar los elogiosos comentarios de quienes me precedieron en el uso de la palabra, pues, aunque inmerecidos, naturalmente me enorgullecen sobremanera.

      Quiero, antes de iniciar mi discurso, agradecer a la noble Academia de la Lengua, a su presidente doctor Jaime Posada y a los miembros de su Junta Directiva, la generosa hospitalidad en este precioso auditorio que contribuye a dar realce a esta sesión solemne.

      Muchas Gracias.

      Deseo manifestar, que los conceptos que vaya emitir, reflejan mi pensamiento y por tanto, de ellos soy responsable. No pretendo con ellos criticar, ni mucho menos ofender, a personas o instituciones, son más que todo reflexiones, que me llevan a propuestas de trabajo para el futuro y espero que así sean percibidas y analizadas por esta distinguida audiencia.

      El día 3 de enero de 1873, el joven médico Abraham Aparicio, reunió en su residencia, en las primeras horas de la fría noche santafereña, a sus colegas Manuel Plata Azuero, Nicolás Osario, Liborio Zerda, Leoncio Barreta y Evaristo García, con el propósito de crear una sociedad científica, para el estudio y adelanto de las ciencias médicas y naturales, así como para solidarizar al cuerpo médico y darle unidad al ejercicio profesional en el país. Así nació la Sociedad de Medicina y Ciencias Naturales que posteriormente sería elevada a la categoría de Academia Nacional de Medicina, por la Ley 71 de 22 de noviembre de 1890.

      Full Text Available Desde el punto de vista farmacológico, es importante comprender qué es el alcohol y cómo actúa en el organismo. No existe una causa simple, sino una interacción complicada de factores neuroquímicos, fisiológicos, psicológicos y sociales que originan y desarrollan esta grave enfermedad fármaco-dependiente. La acción psicofisiológica y farmacodinámica del alcohol es fundamentalmente depresiva, por la reducción de la transmisión sináptica en el sistema nervioso humano. Es un hecho conocido que el consumo excesivo de alcohol causa una disfunción aguda y crónica del cerebro, produciendo trastornos en el sistema nervioso central, presentando alteraciones en la memoria y en las funciones intelectuales como cálculo, comprensión y aprendizaje. A nivel hepático tiene lugar, en su mayoría, el metabolismo del alcohol, produciéndose un hígado graso alcohólico, aumentando el tamaño, terminando en necrosis e inflamación grave del hígado; esto se llama hepatitis alcohólica, y si se sigue consumiendo alcohol se desarrollará la cirrosis. El alcohol también ha estado relacionado con alteraciones del miocardio; se ha constatado en animales de experimentación sanos que tanto la velocidad de contracción del músculo cardiaco y su máxima tensión disminuyen en presencia del alcohol, como consecuencia, la fuerza de cada contracción y el aumento de presión en el ventrículo izquierdo son menores, perdiendo eficacia el corazón como bomba.

Las categorías del autor argentino proponen una perspectiva que no disuelve el conflicto político en la negociación regulada de intereses bajo mecanismos institucionales, pero adolece de presentar a la práctica política cotidiana como regida casi totalmente por la mera reproducción y sedimentación. Para superar dichas dificultades, el artículo propone incorporar al andamiaje laclauniano dos categorías provenientes de otras tradiciones teóricas (tematizadas por Paul Ricoeur y Hannah Arendt: las nociones de acción y espacio público.

Sin embargo, también hubo intelectuales nacionalistas que tendieron puentes hacia una “tradición democrática”. Carlos Ibarguren y Ernesto Palacio anunciaron, en el contexto de la Gran Depresión, que la “falsa” democracia liberal dejaría su lugar a otra más “genuina”: el fascismo italiano, que reconstruía los lazos entre el Estado y la sociedad, a partir de liderazgos carismáticos, el corporativismo e el intervencionismo económico. Al mismo tiempo, según estos intelectuales, el fin del parlamentarismo y del liberalismo económico clausuraría las disputas políticas y posibilitaría una colaboración entre las clases sociales. Se estudia esta reformulación autoritaria de la democracia, fruto de la lectura que Palacio e Ibarguren hicieron del escenario político argentino e internacional.

    11. Pathogenesis of Human Diffusely Adhering Escherichia coli Expressing Afa/Dr Adhesins (Afa/Dr DAEC): Current Insights and Future Challenges

      2014-01-01

      SUMMARY The pathogenicity and clinical pertinence of diffusely adhering Escherichia coli expressing the Afa/Dr adhesins (Afa/Dr DAEC) in urinary tract infections (UTIs) and pregnancy complications are well established. In contrast, the implication of intestinal Afa/Dr DAEC in diarrhea is still under debate. These strains are age dependently involved in diarrhea in children, are apparently not involved in diarrhea in adults, and can also be asymptomatic intestinal microbiota strains in children and adult. This comprehensive review analyzes the epidemiology and diagnosis and highlights recent progress which has improved the understanding of Afa/Dr DAEC pathogenesis. Here, I summarize the roles of Afa/Dr DAEC virulence factors, including Afa/Dr adhesins, flagella, Sat toxin, and pks island products, in the development of specific mechanisms of pathogenicity. In intestinal epithelial polarized cells, the Afa/Dr adhesins trigger cell membrane receptor clustering and activation of the linked cell signaling pathways, promote structural and functional cell lesions and injuries in intestinal barrier, induce proinflammatory responses, create angiogenesis, instigate epithelial-mesenchymal transition-like events, and lead to pks-dependent DNA damage. UTI-associated Afa/Dr DAEC strains, following adhesin-membrane receptor cell interactions and activation of associated lipid raft-dependent cell signaling pathways, internalize in a microtubule-dependent manner within urinary tract epithelial cells, develop a particular intracellular lifestyle, and trigger a toxin-dependent cell detachment. In response to Afa/Dr DAEC infection, the host epithelial cells generate antibacterial defense responses. Finally, I discuss a hypothetical role of intestinal Afa/Dr DAEC strains that can act as “silent pathogens” with the capacity to emerge as “pathobionts” for the development of inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal carcinogenesis.

      Full Text Available The Death Receptor 6 (DR6 protein is elevated in the serum of ovarian cancer patients. We tested DR6 serum protein levels as a diagnostic/predictive biomarker in several epithelial tumors and sarcomas.DR6 gene expression profiles were screened in publically available arrays of solid tumors. A quantitative immunofluorescent western blot analysis was developed to test the serum of healthy controls and patients with sarcoma, uterine carcinosarcoma, bladder, liver, and pancreatic carcinomas. Change in DR6 serum levels was used to assay the ability of DR6 to predict the response to therapy of sarcoma patients.DR6 mRNA is highly expressed in all tumor types assayed. Western blot analysis of serum DR6 protein demonstrated high reproducibility (r = 0.97. Compared to healthy donor controls, DR6 serum levels were not elevated in patients with uterine carcinosarcoma, bladder, liver, or pancreatic cancers. Serum DR6 protein levels from adult sarcoma patients were significantly elevated (p<0.001. This was most evident for patients with synovial sarcoma. Change in serum DR6 levels during therapy correlated with clinical benefit from therapy (sensitivity 75%, and positive predictive value 87%.DR6 may be a clinically useful diagnostic and predictive serum biomarker for some adult sarcoma subtypes.Diagnosis of sarcoma can be difficult and can lead to improper management of these cancers. DR6 serum protein may be a tool to aid in the diagnosis of some sarcomatous tumors to improve treatment planning. For patients with advanced disease, rising DR6 levels predict non-response to therapy and may expedite therapeutic decision making and reduce reliance on radiologic imaging.

      Dr Milenko Petrović was one of the very distinguished physicians in the history of Sombor city, who significantly contributed to the development of health care in Voivodina. His father Dimitrije was a professor in the High Teacher-training School in Sombor, recognized writer and politician of his epoch. He was born in Sombor in 1884, where he was educated and finished grammar school. For medical studies he moved to Budapest as a boarder of the famous Tekelianum, and graduated in 1908. He started specialisation in surgery, but being a great patriot he voluntarily recruited in the Serbian army to fight in Balkan liberation wars against Turkey. For his excellent work as a war surgeon he obtained many recognitions. After completing specialization in surgery in Debrecin, he returned to his native city Sombor, where he intended to practice as a physician, but because af the outbreak of the first world he was mobilized and sent to the front in Galicia. After the war he again returned to Sombor where he was immediatelly nominated for the main county physician and then begins his fruitful many year's work on the establishment and promotion of the health care in Sombor and broader territory. As the main county phsician he initiated the foundation and construction of the hospital in Sombor, because of high mortality rate among children, and spreading of contagious diseases like tuberculosis and trachoma. The construction of the hospital was completed in 1925 and Dr. Petrović was appointed its first director and this duty he performed for many years till the World War 2 in 1941. Under his management the hospital in Sombor became one of the best quality hospitals in the country and gave a big contribution to the promotion of health of the inhabitants of Voivodina. In spite of his extensive duties in the hospital. Dr. Milenko Petrović was very much engaged in social work, as the president of library "Laza Kosti ć". in the Soko association, Fire brigade, Rotary club, and he

      Gaia DR1 Tycho-Gaia Astrometric Solution parallaxes, Tycho-2 photometry, and reddening/extinction estimates from nine data sources for 38 074 giants within 415 pc from the Sun are used to compare their position in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram with theoretical estimates, which are based on the PARSEC and MIST isochrones and the TRILEGAL model of the Galaxy with its parameters being widely varied. We conclude that (1) some systematic errors of the reddening/extinction estimates are the main uncertainty in this study; (2) any emission-based 2D reddening map cannot give reliable estimates of reddening within 415 pc due to a complex distribution of dust; (3) if a TRILEGAL's set of the parameters of the Galaxy is reliable and if the solar metallicity is Z 50°, give the best fit of the empirical and theoretical data with each other.

      Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) was a young and promising German who at age 29 decided to undertake the profession of Medical Doctor at the University of Strassburg after finishing a career in musical studies in Paris (1899) and obtaining in Berlin a doctoral degree in Philosophy and Theology. Surprisingly, Albert Schweitzer, despite his comfortable life in Europe, decided in 1913 to practice his medical career in a remote and small Equatorial African country. He devoted nearly 50 years of his life caring for the Black population at Lamaberene, where he built a hospital. In this paper, we attempt to develop some theoretical aspects related with interculturality in the medical practice of Dr. Albert Schweitzer. We begin by considering certain sociocultural variables in hospitals that give care to patients with cultural characteristics that are substantially different from those of the health care personnel who organize, administer, and execute medical functions.

    19. The Chymistry of "The Learned Dr Plot" (1640-96).

      Roos, Anna Marie

      2014-01-01

      In the seventeenth century, there were developing norms of openness in the presentation of scientific knowledge that were at odds with traditions of secrecy among chymists, particularly practitioners of chrysopoeia, or the transmutation of metals. This chapter analyzes how Dr. Robert Plot, the first professor of chymistry at Oxford, negotiated these boundaries within an institutional context. I first delineate his chymical and experimental practice, which incorporated procedures from medieval alchemical sources, particularly the Lullian corpus, as well as more novel practices from seventeenth-century chymistry. Then, I analyze how personal and institutional ambitions and economic considerations shaped to what extent Plot negotiated the boundaries between secrecy and the public dissemination of chymical knowledge.

      Autonomous vehicles require highly reliable navigation capabilities. For example, a lane-following method cannot be applied in an intersection without lanes, and since typical lane detection is performed using a straight-line model, errors can occur when the lateral distance is estimated in curved sections due to a model mismatch. Therefore, this paper proposes a localization method that uses GPS/DR error estimation based on a lane detection method with curved lane models, stop line detection, and curve matching in order to improve the performance during waypoint following procedures. The advantage of using the proposed method is that position information can be provided for autonomous driving through intersections, in sections with sharp curves, and in curved sections following a straight section. The proposed method was applied in autonomous vehicles at an experimental site to evaluate its performance, and the results indicate that the positioning achieved accuracy at the sub-meter level.

      Sensitive high angular resolution (∼2'') CO(2-1) line observations made with the Submillimeter Array of the flow emanating from the high-mass star-forming region DR21 located in the Cygnus X molecular cloud are presented. These new interferometric observations indicate that this well known enigmatic outflow appears to have been produced by an explosive event that took place about 10,000 years ago, and that might be related to the disintegration of a massive stellar system such as the one that occurred in Orion Becklin-Neugebauer/Kleinman-Low 500 years ago, but about 20 times more energetic. This result therefore argues in favor of the idea that the disintegration of young stellar systems perhaps is a frequent phenomenon present during the formation of massive stars. However, many more theoretical and observational studies are still needed to confirm our hypothesis.

      FEMoM3DR is a computer code written in FORTRAN 77 to compute radiation characteristics of antennas on 3D body using combined Finite Element Method (FEM)/Method of Moments (MoM) technique. The code is written to handle different feeding structures like coaxial line, rectangular waveguide, and circular waveguide. This code uses the tetrahedral elements, with vector edge basis functions for FEM and triangular elements with roof-top basis functions for MoM. By virtue of FEM, this code can handle any arbitrary shaped three dimensional bodies with inhomogeneous lossy materials; and due to MoM the computational domain can be terminated in any arbitrary shape. The User's Manual is written to make the user acquainted with the operation of the code. The user is assumed to be familiar with the FORTRAN 77 language and the operating environment of the computers on which the code is intended to run.

      GENESI-DR (Ground European Network for Earth Science Interoperations - Digital Repositories) is a European Commission (EC)-funded project, kicked-off early 2008 lead by ESA; partners include Space Agencies (DLR, ASI, CNES), both space and no-space data providers such as ENEA (I), Infoterra (UK), K-SAT (N), NILU (N), JRC (EU) and industry as Elsag Datamat (I), CS (F) and TERRADUE (I). GENESI-DR intends to meet the challenge of facilitating "time to science" from different Earth Science disciplines in discovery, access and use (combining, integrating, processing, …) of historical and recent Earth-related data from space, airborne and in-situ sensors, which are archived in large distributed repositories. "Discovering" which data are available on a "geospatial web" is one of the main challenges ES scientists have to face today. Some well- known data sets are referred to in many places, available from many sources. For core information with a common purpose many copies are distributed, e.g., VMap0, Landsat, and SRTM. Other data sets in low or local demand may only be found in a few places and niche communities. Relevant services, results of analysis, applications and tools are accessible in a very scattered and uncoordinated way, often through individual initiatives from Earth Observation mission operators, scientific institutes dealing with ground measurements, service companies or data catalogues. In the discourse of Spatial Data Infrastructures, there are "catalogue services" - directories containing information on where spatial data and services can be found. For metadata "records" describing spatial data and services, there are "registries". The Geospatial industry coins specifications for search interfaces, where it might do better to reach out to other information retrieval and Internet communities. These considerations are the basis for the GENESI-DR scientific portal, which adopts a simple model allowing the geo-spatial classification and discovery of

      Full Text Available En la planta de Recuperación de Amoniaco de la empresa niquelera Ernesto Che Guevara la pérdida de eficiencia del proceso de enfriamiento del licor amoniacal, mediante el uso de intercambiadores de calor de placas, se asocia a la incorrecta estimación de los coeficientes de transferencia de calor y la acumulación de incrustaciones en la superficie de intercambio; lo anterior incrementa el consumo de agua, la energía disponible en el sistema y los costos de mantenimiento. Se realizó una investigación en un intercambiador de calor de placas, con el objetivo de determinar los coeficientes de transferencia y la influencia de las incrustaciones en la pérdida de eficiencia de la instalación. Mediante un procedimiento iterativo se determinó la ecuación del número de Nusselt y su dependencia con el Reynolds y Prandtl, para ello se utilizó un diseño experimental multifactorial y mediciones de los parámetros de trabajo de la instalación en función del tiempo. Los resultados predicen el conocimiento de los coeficientes para el cálculo del número de Nusselt, con los valores de Reynolds y Prandtl, para ambos fluidos (licor amoniacal y agua. Los valores de los coeficientes del licor son inferiores, ello se debe a la presencia de componentes gaseosos. La comparación con resultados de otros autores muestra correspondencia con los de Thonon. Se recomienda la limpieza y mantenimiento de la instalación en un período de 27 días debido a la reducción de la eficiencia térmica hasta valores inferiores al 70 %.

      Nurses have long attempted to secure a unique identity for the profession. Many scholars are now promoting an interdisciplinary framework for nursing practice. Fawcett is convinced that interdisciplinary practice poses a danger for nursing to lose its identity and that interdisciplinary practice cannot be successful if members of each discipline do not understand the conceptual models, practice, and research of their own discipline. Dr. Janie Butts and Dr. Karen Rich interviewed Dr. Jacqueline Fawcett about her views related to discipline-specific knowledge and nursing's future. The authors conclude that Fawcett's scientific foundation gives nursing the solidarity and power necessary to determine the unique internal goods of its practice.

      Radiological characterization, decommissioning and demolition of the 132-DR-1 site, 1608-DR Effluent Pumping Station was performed in 1987. The current site conditions achieve the remedial action objectives and the corresponding remedial action goals established in the Remaining Sites ROD. Residual concentrations support future land uses that can be represented by a rural-residential scenario and pose no threat to groundwater or the Columbia River based on RESRAD modeling

      DR 2 (Danish Reactor 2), one of the research reactors at the Riso site, has been in the process of being decommissioned during the last two years. The decommissioning will be completed in 2008. The reactor went critical for the first time in late 1958 and was shut down in 1975. The construction was a 5 MW light-water moderated and cooled tank type reactor. Although the process of decommissioning was formally initiated in 2005, it was preceded by a characterization project with the purpose of determining activity contents in key materials and dose rates at relevant spots in the reactor. The paper describes the removal of neutron beam plugs, grid plate and a thermal column with focus on radiation protection issues. The primary objective is, however, to describe the measures taken to control radiation doses during the removal of the reactor block concrete and the reactor tank.The demolition and removal of concrete was done by an external contractor. The contractor had to comply with a comprehensive set of requirements. This included splitting activated concrete from concrete containing activities below clearance levels with no use of fluids of any kind, as the risk of not being able to control diffusion of contaminated fluids was an important issue. The experience from the decommissioning of the DR 1 reactor in 2005 showed that water-cooled cutting made it very difficult to monitor the levels of air contamination as the filters of the air monitors were blocked frequently. Certainly, dry cutting turned out to be a great technical challenge to the external contractor. Another demand was that the work should take place inside a de-pressurized containment in order to control air contamination and thereby minimize internal doses. The experience gathered from the practical implementation of dose reducing measures will be discussed. Problems involving the use of external contractors will be discussed, including training of personnel with no prior knowledge of radioactivity

      Islet autoimmunity is initiated in infancy, and primary prevention trials require children at high genetic risk to be identified before autoantibodies appear. To inform screening strategies, we evaluated risks of autoimmunity and diabetes associated with HLA DR3-DQ2/DR4-DQ8 in U.K. families. Extended HLA haplotypes were determined in 2,134 siblings from the Bart's-Oxford Study followed to a median age of 22 years. Risks of diabetes and islet autoimmunity (more than two antibodies) were estimated by survival analysis. Of 138 informative DR3-DQ2/DR4-DQ8 siblings, 63% shared both haplotypes with their diabetic proband, 29% shared one, and 8% shared neither. In HLA-identical DR3-DQ2/DR4-DQ8 siblings, the cumulative risk of diabetes by age 15 was 17% (vs. 6% in those sharing one haplotype or none; P = 0.095). Risk varied, however, with the age at the onset of diabetes in the proband; the cumulative risk of autoimmunity and/or diabetes by age 15 was 61% in siblings of probands diagnosed when younger than 10 years old compared with only 4.7% in those diagnosed after age 10 years (P sibling risk. This suggests that non-HLA genes or epigenetic/environmental factors that accelerate the progression of type 1 diabetes in the proband strongly affect risk in siblings.

      Dr. Lisa Monaco, Marshall Space Flight Center's (MSFC's) project scientist for the Lab-on-a-Chip Applications Development (LOCAD) program, examines a lab on a chip. The small dots are actually ports where fluids and chemicals can be mixed or samples can be collected for testing. Tiny channels, only clearly visible under a microscope, form pathways between the ports. Many chemical and biological processes, previously conducted on large pieces of laboratory equipment, can now be performed on these small glass or plastic plates. Monaco and other researchers at MSFC in Huntsville, Alabama, are customizing the chips to be used for many space applications, such as monitoring microbes inside spacecraft and detecting life on other planets. The portable, handheld Lab-on-a Chip Application Development Portable Test System (LOCAD-PTS) made its debut flight aboard Discovery during the STS-116 mission launched December 9, 2006. The system allowed crew members to monitor their environment for problematic contaminants such as yeast, mold, and even E.coli, and salmonella. Once LOCAD-PTS reached the International Space Station (ISS), the Marshall team continued to manage the experiment, monitoring the study from a console in the Payload Operations Center at MSFC. The results of these studies will help NASA researchers refine the technology for future Moon and Mars missions. (NASA/MSFC/D.Stoffer)

      The year of 2004 was the 100th anniversary of death of the poet and physician Dr. Jovan Jovanović Zmaj. Jovan Jovanović Zmaj was born in 1833 in Novi Sad, and died in 1904 in Sremska Kamenica J.J. Zmaj himself studied law and worked in the Novi Sad magistrate court. It was not until he turned 30 that he began practicing medicine. He developed as a poet as early as during his studies. He remained loyal to the vocations of physician and poet throughout his life. He wrote over 5000 poems, ranging from those for children through those for adults and those with which he addressed the rulers satirically. He was a founder of a number of magazines (Javor, Neven, Komarac, Danica). At that time of Romanticism, the work of J.J. Zmaj also had a national character. However, he succeeded in achieving something more: he introduced a literary genre till then unknown in Serb literature--literature for children. Through his genre he promoted not only Serbian language but also hygiene, by which he played a significant health care role, similar to that played by his friend Milan Jovanović Batut, only from a different aspect. He also used to draw, and his drawing of the emblem of the Serbian Literary Association has remained on the cover of every book published by it until these days.

      In this work, we present a catalog of 2651 carbon stars from the fourth Data Release (DR4) of the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopy Telescope (LAMOST). Using an efficient machine-learning algorithm, we find these stars from more than 7 million spectra. As a by-product, 17 carbon-enhanced metal-poor turnoff star candidates are also reported in this paper, and they are preliminarily identified by their atmospheric parameters. Except for 176 stars that could not be given spectral types, we classify the other 2475 carbon stars into five subtypes: 864 C-H, 226 C-R, 400 C-J, 266 C-N, and 719 barium stars based on a series of spectral features. Furthermore, we divide the C-J stars into three subtypes, C-J(H), C-J(R), and C-J(N), and about 90% of them are cool N-type stars as expected from previous literature. Besides spectroscopic classification, we also match these carbon stars to multiple broadband photometries. Using ultraviolet photometry data, we find that 25 carbon stars have FUV detections and that they are likely to be in binary systems with compact white dwarf companions.

    15. The case of the missing fingerprints or Dr Watson's cosmology

      The cosmological problem has four main areas of uncertainty -the origin of isotropy of the universe, the origin of the fluctuations from which galaxies form, the explanation of why we live in a matter universe rather than one composed of equal amounts of matter and antimatter and why the Universe seems to be within a factor of 10 of the critical, flat universe. These cannot be explained satisfactorily within the Hot Big Bang theory after a millisecond or so. The solutions are presumed, therefore, to lie in the very early universe when it was less than about a millisecond old. The clues which lead to this conclusion are set out in terms of a detective story with Sherlock Holmes explaining the facts about the universe to Dr Watson. Holmes first explains the size of the universe in terms of distances and sizes of stars, galaxies and galaxy clusters. Evidence from pictures of the universe at different temperatures, (X-ray pictures, gamma-ray pictures, far infra-red pictures and pictures at radio and millimetre wavelengths) is presented. Holmes then starts to build up a realistic model of the universe using two of the facts collected (the isotropy of the universe and the expansion of the universe), one assumption (the cosmological principle) and one theory of gravity (General Relativity). However the universe which emerges does not solve the four problems mentioned. Quasars, which provide information (illustrated) from earlier epochs of the universe may, therefore, help to solve the problems. (U.K.)

      In this work, we built all sky index files from Gaia DR1 catalogue for the high-precision astrometric field solution and the precise WCS coordinates of the moving objects. For this, we used build-astrometry-index program as a part of astrometry.net code suit. Additionally, we added astrometry.net's WCS solution tool to our previously developed software which is a fast and robust pipeline for detecting moving objects such as asteroids and comets in sequential FITS images, called A-Track. Moreover, MPC module was added to A-Track. This module is linked to an asteroid database to name the found objects and prepare the MPC file to report the results. After these innovations, we tested a new version of the A-Track code on photometrical data taken by the SI-1100 CCD with 1-meter telescope at TÜBİTAK National Observatory, Antalya. The pipeline can be used to analyse large data archives or daily sequential data. The code is hosted on GitHub under the GNU GPL v3 license.

      We analyze the kinematics of thick disk and halo stars observed by the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope. We have constructed a sample of 7993 F, G, and K nearby main-sequence stars (d < 2 kpc) with estimates of position (x, y, z) and space velocity (U, V, W) based on color and proper motion from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR9 catalog. Three 'phase-space overdensities' are identified in (V, √(U 2 +2V 2 )) with significance levels of σ > 3. Two of them (the Hyades-Pleiades stream and the Arcturus-AF06 stream) have been identified previously. We also find evidence for a new stream (centered at V ∼ –180 km s –1 ) in the halo. The formation mechanisms of these three streams are analyzed. Our results support the hypothesis that the Arcturus-AF06 stream and the new stream originated from the debris of a disrupted satellite, while the Hyades-Pleiades stream has a dynamical origin.

    3. Evolution and current status of demand response (DR) in electricity markets: Insights from PJM and NYISO

      Walawalkar, Rahul; Fernands, Stephen; Thakur, Netra; Chevva, Konda Reddy

      2010-01-01

      In electricity markets, traditional demand side management programs are slowly getting replaced with demand response (DR) programs. These programs have evolved since the early pilot programs launched in late 1990s. With the changes in market rules the opportunities have generally increased for DR for participating in emergency, economic and ancillary service programs. In recent times, various regulators have suggested that DR can also be used as a solution to meet supply - demand fluctuations in scenarios with significant penetration of variable renewable sources in grid. This paper provides an overview of the evolution of the DR programs in PJM and NYISO markets as well as analyzes current opportunities. Although DR participation has grown, most of the current participation is in the reliability programs, which are designed to provide load curtailment during peak days. This suggests that there is a significant gap between perception of ability of DR to mitigate variability of renewables and reality of current participation. DR in future can be scaled to play a more dynamic role in electricity markets, but that would require changes both on technology as well as policy front. Advances in building technologies and energy storage combined with appropriate price signals can lead to enhanced DR participation. (author)

      The influence of the work of Dr. Guillermo Contreras Da Silva and his colaborators on the evolution of microbiology in Chile is briefly analyzed. Dr. Contreras was trained in modern virology at Yale University with Dr. J. Melnick under the sponsorhip of the Rockefeller Foundation. During this training, he used serological methods to classify Cocksakie viruses. After his return to Chile, he studied the epidemiology of enteroviruses, including poliovirus. His laboratory, the country's first in modern virology, took an active role in Chile's first Sabin polio vaccination in 1961. Dr. Contreras and his group transformed the teaching and the character of microbiology in Chile from a descriptive medically oriented discipline into an autonomous, quantitative and experimental science. They modernized microbiology with the introduction of molecular biology and microbial genetics and fostered collaborations with allied biological sciences. Dr. Contreras was a Guggenheim Fellow, and until his retirement, was the Chief of the Viral Products Division, Bureau of Biologies, Ottawa, Canada.

      Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DRB1 allele polymorphisms have been reported to be associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) susceptibility, but the results of these previous studies have been inconsistent. The purpose of the present study was to systematically summarize and explore whether specific HLA-DRB1 alleles confer susceptibility or resistance to SLE and lupus nephritis. This review was guided by the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) approach. A comprehensive search was made for articles from PubMed, Medline, Elsevier Science, Springer Link and Cochrane Library database. A total of 25 case-control studies on the relationship between gene polymorphism of HLA-DRB l and SLE were performed and data were analyzed and processed using Review Manager 5.2 and Stata 11.0. At the allelic level, HLA-DR4, DR11 and DR14 were identified as protective factors for SLE (0.79 [0.69,0.91], P  0.05). DR4 and 11 (OR, 0.55 [0.39, 0.79], P  0.05; 0.90 [0.64, 1.27], P > 0.05; 0.61 [0.36, 1.03], P > 0.05, respectively) were not statistically significant between the lupus nephritis and control groups. The HLA-DR4, DR11, DR14 alleles might be protective factors for SLE and HLA-DR3, DR9, DR15 were potent risk factors. In addition, HLA-DR4 and DR11 alleles might be protective factors for lupus nephritis and DR3 and DR15 suggest a risk role. These results proved that HLA-DR3, DR15, DR4 and DR11 might be identified as predictors for lupus nephritis and SLE. © 2014 Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology and Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.

      This article, setting out from the idea that science has very often been a fundamental concern of literature, of which several examples are given, explores the relationship between the literary and the scientific realms, which becomes especially intense in the extreme, tragical cases of scientific transgression. This latter is analysed here in the concrete cases of three emblematic works of English literature belonging to different historical periods: Dr. Faustus, Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Each of the heroes is a scientist, a doctor, in his own way, and each of them, impelled by an overwhelming scientific passion, trespasses on moral, religious and social limits imposed on them as men and as doctors. Their actions, or their very selves become monstruous in the course of their transgression, which brings punishment and tragedy. But the quest of these doctors, as literature has proven throughout the centuries, and as it has been my intention to explain, continues to be that of science today: it is particularly at the very core of medical debate nowadays, when questions such as genetic engineering awaken both in scientist and people in general all sorts of expectations, misgivings, fears and hopes.

      Objectives: To investigate whether certain DR alleles might also contribute to the genetic susceptibility among Coeliac disease patients in Pakistan. Methods: The case-control study was conducted at the Military Hospital, Rawalpindi, from October 2011 to January 2012, and analysed 25 children diagnosed to have coeliac disease as per the criteria set by the European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, which included histopathological alterations in duodenal biopsies, clinical response to gluten withdrawal, and presence of anti-endomyseal antibodies. Patients were compared with a group of 150 healthy subjects. Dioxyribonucleic acid was extracted from peripheral blood collected in ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid.K3. Human leukocyte antigen DRB1 typing was carried out on allele level (DRB1*01 - DRB1*16) using sequence specific primers. Human leukocyte antigen type was determined by agarose gel electrophoresis and results were recorded. Phenotype frequency of various alleles among the patient group and the control group was calculated by direct counting, and significance of their association was determined by Fisher Exact Test. Results: A total of 11 (44%) female paediatric coeliac patients in age range 1-9 (mean 7.2+-4.8 years) and 14 (56%) male paediatric patients in the age range 6-14 (mean 8.6+-5.1 years) were genotyped for HLA-DRB1 loci. A statistically significant positive association of the disease with HLA-DRB1*03 (n=23; 92% versus n=31; 21% in controls, p <0.01) was observed. Conclusion: HLA-DRB1*03 is associated with increased risk of developing coeliac disease. (author)

      This SAP presents the rationale and strategy for characterization of specific rooms within the 105-F and 105-DR reactor buildings. Figures 1-1 and 1-2 identify the rooms that are the subject of this SAP. These rooms are to be decontaminated and demolished as an initial step (Phase 1 ) in the Interim Safe Storage process for these reactors. Section 1.0 presents the background and sites history for the reactor buildings and summarizes the data quality objective process, which provides the logical basis for this SAP. Preliminary surveys indicate that little radiochemical contamination is present. Section 2.0 presents the quality assurance project plan, which includes a project management structure, sampling methods and quality control, and oversight of the sampling process. Section 2.2.1 summarizes the sampling methods, reflecting the radiological and chemical sampling designs presented in Tables 1-17 and 1-18. Section 3.0 presents the Field Sampling Plan for Phase 1. The sampling design is broken into two stages. Stage 1 will verify the list of radioactive constituents of concern and generate the isotopic distribution. The objectives of Stage 2 are to estimate the radionuclide inventories of room debris, quantify chemical contamination, and survey room contents for potential salvage or recycle. Table 3-1 presents the sampling activities to be performed in Stage 1. Tables 1-17 and 1-18 identify samples to be collected in Stage 2. Stage 2 will consist primarily of survey data collection, with fixed laboratory samples to be collected in areas showing visible stains. Quality control sampling requirements are presented in Table 3-2

      1970-01-01

      Alexandre Sanielevici, whose death on 21 December in Romania we regret to record, had been connected with important aspects of the Agency's research work almost from its inception. Born in 1899, he studied physics and chemistry first at the University of Jassy, Romania, and then at the Sorbonne where he obtained the degree of Doctor of Science. He worked for several years at the Radium Institute, Paris and later at Bucharest University. At the time he joined the Agency in 1958 he was a Professor in the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, a corresponding member of the Romanian Academy of Sciences, department head of the Academy's Institute of Nuclear Physics and head of the radioisotopes laboratory. His work with the Agency was mainly connected with research and the laboratories, but he also assisted in matters of health, safety and waste disposal. On his retirement in 1967 he was given a special appointment as consultant to the Scientific Council of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, a task which he fulfilled with characteristic assiduity and enthusiasm. He was the author of books on radioactivity, nuclear structures and the utilization of radioisotopes as well as of a number of scientific papers. Dr. Frank M. Folsom, who since 1957 has been a permanent representative of the Holy See to the Agency and has regularly attended the General Conference, died in New York on 12 January aged 75. A graduate of the University of San Francisco, he held a number of important positions both in industry and connected with universities and charitable work. For many years he was president of a large communications corporation and was the recipient of numerous honours and awards. Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, who has always shared with him the representation of the Holy See, in writing to announce the loss said 'Frank was a wonderfully generous and devoted friend and we will all miss him greatly'

      Gaia is the Anglo-Saxon term for the Hellenic term Gea or Ge, which means Earth. The GAIA hypothesis was launched almost 40 years ago by the famous chemist James Lovelock, who was engaged by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to create a sensitive instrument for searching forms of extraterrestrial life on other planets. Then he published the book The ages of GAIA, which perturbed the world's scientific public of those days. Lovelock struck upon this idea in the late sixties of the past century, during the space race with Russians, when he was hired hy the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to conduct a series of experiments to find and explore life forms on the planet Mars. Experiments executed by the American module Viking failed to trace any life form, as Lovelock had predicted. He called it a dead equilibrium. Then he turned to Earth, whose perspective is totally different from its first neighbors. Venus and Mars, and is far from a dead equilibrium. DAISYWORLD: In this hypothesis. Lovelock represents Earth as one living, giant super organism, composed of all living creatures and its material environnent. In that super organisnm, the level of oxygen, weather conditions, ocean salinity and so on are under constant influence of physical, chemical and biological processes, which provide the existence for such life forms on Earth. Dr James Lovelock represents a pioneer of climatology, and his hypothesis gives a unique insight into the correlation of dynamic processes on our planet, no matter whether they are of physical or biological nature.

      The 100-BC-1, 100-BC-2, 100-DR-1, and 100-DR-2 Group 3 waste sites contain 22 past-practice liquid waste disposal sites and process effluent piping associated with four plutonium-production nuclear reactors that operated from 1944 to 1967. The 100-BC-1, 100-BC-2, 100-DR-1, and 100-DR-2 Group 3 waste sites are the third set of Hanford 100 Area sites to undergo remediation to the extent practicable. Like the sites listed in Groups 1 and 2, the Group 3 sites are considered high-priority because of the contaminants present and their proximity to the Columbia River. Remediation of the 100-BC-1, 100-HR-1 and 100-DR-1 radioactive liquid waste sites is planned to occur in two phases: The first phase, which has been completed, was a demonstration project in the 100-B/C Area to test field techniques and acquire contamination data. The second phase is full-scale remediation of all the reactor areas, starting in the 10-B/C Area, using the field experience gained in the first phase and each subsequent reactor area remediation. This document provides the DQO in support of remediation sampling and analysis at selected sites in the 100-B/C and 100-D Areas

      Finding the new related candidate diseases for known drugs provides an effective method for fast-speed and low-risk drug development. However, experimental identification of drug-disease associations is expensive and time-consuming. This motivates the need for developing in silico computational methods that can infer true drug-disease pairs with high confidence. In this study, we presented a novel and powerful computational tool, DR2DI, for accurately uncovering the potential associations between drugs and diseases using high-dimensional and heterogeneous omics data as information sources. Based on a unified and extended similarity kernel framework, DR2DI inferred the unknown relationships between drugs and diseases using Regularized Kernel Classifier. Importantly, DR2DI employed a semi-supervised and global learning algorithm which can be applied to uncover the diseases (drugs) associated with known and novel drugs (diseases). In silico global validation experiments showed that DR2DI significantly outperforms recent two approaches for predicting drug-disease associations. Detailed case studies further demonstrated that the therapeutic indications and side effects of drugs predicted by DR2DI could be validated by existing database records and literature, suggesting that DR2DI can be served as a useful bioinformatic tool for identifying the potential drug-disease associations and guiding drug repositioning.

    10. Study on image quality and dosage comparison of F/S system and DR system

      2003-01-01

      Currently, many hospital are hastening to introduce digital radiography systems. This is a direct result of the intentions to improve medical services and to digitalized radiology information systems, and is also leading to the improvement of medical imaging technology. Throughout F/S system's long history, many people have researched the image quality and dosage concerning these systems, and as a result, huge improvements in the dosage of patients were possible. Similarly, I believe that DR systems need the same kind of effort. Of course, decreases in dosage that ignore image quality are unthinkable. The results of experiments conducted by five hospitals during a period of 3 months brought to us the conclusions listed below. Based on the comparison and analysis of the exposure control of F/S systems and DR systems, DR systems generally showed higher exposure control for parts of the phantom that became thicker, and the exposure control improved rapidly as the thickness increased. DR systems still proved to be somewhat deficient in resolution measurements compared to existing F/S systems. The image processing part of DR systems contributed much to these result. Under conditions used clinically, the dosage measurements of DR systems were generally higher regardless of region. According to the evaluation of image quality, DR systems showed a higher degree of satisfaction as the thickness of the region became thinner. As mentioned above and based on the mutual relationship experiments between the dosage and image quality of F/S systems and DR systems, research to increase the satisfaction of DR systems must be considered

      This report describes the influence of HLA-D/-DR antigen disparity upon the level of cytotoxicity in allogeneic in vitro cultures. Allogeneic cultures, between unrelated HLA-D/-DR full house donors, tested in CML gave three different levels of cytotoxicity, termed weak, intermediate and strong cytotoxicity. HLA-D/-DR compatibility predicts weak cytotoxicity and two HLA-B antigen incompatibility predicts strong cytotoxicity. On the contrary, HLA-A antigens have no major influence upon the strength of cytotoxicity. Accepting that the MLC/CML reaction is an in vitro parallel to the in vivo transplantation of allogeneic tissue, the observations are in accordance with the results of HLA-D/-DR matching for graft survival in human renal transplantation.

      Ernst Federn met in the concentration camp Buchenwald Bruno Bettelheim and the Chechoslovakian psychoanalyst Dr. Brief. They discussed the application of psychoanalytic knowledge to the situation in the camp, particularly the defense mechanism of "identification with the aggressor". Of the three, Bettelheim was released after one year, Dr. Brief died in Ausschwitz and Ernst Federn was liberated by the U.S.A. Army. How he could use his psychoanalytic knowledge to survive but also to help fellow prisoners is demonstrated.

    15. The Dr-nanos gene is essential for germ cell specification in the planarian Dugesia ryukyuensis.

      Homologs of nanos are required for the formation and maintenance of germline stem cell (GSC) systems and for gametogenesis in many metazoans. Planarians can change their reproductive mode seasonally, alternating between asexual and sexual reproduction; they develop and maintain their somatic stem cells (SSCs) and GCSs from pluripotent stem cells known as neoblasts. We isolated a nanos homolog, Dr-nanos, from the expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of the sexualized form of Dugesia ryukyuensis. We examined the expression of Dr-nanos in asexual and sexualized planarians by in situ hybridization and analyzed its function using RNA interference (RNAi) together with a planarian sexualization assay. A nanos homolog, Dr-nanos, was identified in the planarian D. ryukyuensis. Dr-nanos expression was observed in the ovarian primordial cells of the asexual worms. This expression increased in proportion to sexualization and was localized in the early germline cells of the ovaries and testes. In X-ray-irradiated worms, the expression of Dr-nanos decreased to a large extent, indicating that Dr-nanos is expressed in some subpopulations of stem cells, especially in GSCs. During the sexualization process, worms in which Dr-nanos was knocked down by RNAi exhibited decreased numbers of oogonia in the ovaries and failed to develop testes, whereas the somatic sexual organs were not affected. We conclude that Dr-nanos is essential for the development of germ cells in the ovaries and testes and may have a function in the early stages of germ cell specification, but not in the development of somatic sexual organs.

Sources for this article included review of the notes prepared by Dr. Joseph Keating in his "biography" of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC); review of the important articles published by Dr. Gitelman; review of the important projects undertaken by him along with various colleagues; notes from reminiscences obtained from many of these colleagues and discussions with his family. Dr. Gitelman's academic career spanned from 1963 to the late 1980's. During that time, he made foundational contributions to the development of chiropractic science including: developing the Archives (1974), the first collection of scientific articles supporting chiropractic science (which was subsequently published as the Chiropractic Archives Research Collection (CRAC)); delivering one of the few chiropractic papers at the seminal NINCDS conference (1975) and, developing the collaboration between CMCC and Dr. Kirkaldy-Willis at the University of Saskatoon (1976). He practiced in Toronto from 1961 to 2007. Dr. Gitelman was a pioneer in the development of chiropractic science. He died on October 7, 2012.

      Acute infectious mononucleosis (AIM) is a widespread viral disease that mostly affects children. Development of AIM is accompanied by a change in the ratio of immune cells. This is provided by means of different biological processes including the regulation of apoptosis of naive T-cells. One of the potential regulators of apoptosis of T-lymphocytes is a death receptor 3 (DR3). We have studied the role of DR3 in the regulation of apoptosis of naive CD4 + (nTh) and CD8 + (nCTL) T-cells in healthy children and children with AIM. In healthy children as well as in children with AIM, the activation of DR3 is accompanied by inhibition of apoptosis of nTh. In healthy children, the stimulation of DR3 resulted in the increase in apoptosis of nCTL. On the contrary, in children with AIM, the level of apoptosis of nCTL decreased after DR3 activation, which is a positive contribution to the antiviral immune response. In children with AIM, nCTL are characterized by reduced level of apoptosis as compared with healthy children. These results indicate that DR3 can be involved in the reduction of sensitivity of nCTL to apoptosis in children with AIM.

    20. Association of leprosy with HLA-DR2 in a Southern Brazilian population

      1997-01-01

      Full Text Available The association between HLA specificities and leprosy was investigated in a Southern Brazilian population. One hundred and twenty-one patients and 147 controls were typed for HLA-A, B, Cw, DR and DQ. Patients were subdivided into the following subgroups, according to clinical, histological and immunological criteria: lepromatous (N = 55, tuberculoid (N = 32, dimorphous (N = 20, and indeterminate (N = 14. The frequencies of HLA specificities were compared between the total group of patients and controls, and between the same controls and each subgroup of patients. After correction of the probabilities, deviations were not significant, except for the DR2 specificity, which presented a frequency of 44.2% in the total group of patients and 56.3% in the subgroup of individuals with the tuberculoid form of the disease, compared to 23.3% in the controls. Stratified analysis showed that the increased DR2 frequency in the total group of patients was due to the subgroups with the tuberculoid and dimorphous forms. The relative risk of tuberculoid leprosy for DR2-positive individuals was 4.2, and the etiologic fraction of DR2 was 0.429. In conclusion, a positive association of the DR2 specificity with the tuberculoid form of leprosy, but not with the lepromatous, dimorphous, or indeterminate forms, was demonstrated in this Southern Brazilian population
