    NARCIS (Netherlands)

    Visser, H.

    1983-01-01

    Silvio Gesell, much praised by Keynes, sought to abolish exploitation while maintaining a decentralised, individualistic economy. His solution was, first, to nationalise land and, second, to ban interest. The rent on nationalised land would, in Gesell's eyes, be sufficient to replace taxes.

  10. The strategic use of humor in political discourse of Silvio Berlusconi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kamila Miłkowska-Samul

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to illustrate some of the mechanisms existing in political discourse which employ emotions and humor as a persuasive means. The study is based on authentic texts produced by Silvio Berlusconi. The importance of emotions and humor in political speech is viewed in the light of changes taking place in public communication due to the development of mass media and Internet, leading to, among others, ever more frequent use of the comical aspect of communication as a method of gaining and maintaining political power. That is why the use of emotions and humor in Berlusconi’s speech is analyzed as a strategic choice and a powerful instrument of political struggle. The article highlights the role of emotions and humor in creating a positive self-image of the politician.

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available Italy’s complex history has produced some remarkable path-breaking experiences and quite a few dangerous anomalies (such as Silvio Berlusconi’s media driven political regime,but it has also made the country the perfect ground for testing experimental antibodies that can contrast such anomalies. One of these antibodies is the web-based civil society orbitingaround the blog Beppegrillo.it. This article argues that the story of such community shows the path to follow for the Italian civil society. Grillo and his fellow bloggers in fact have so far demonstrated that new communication media have the potential to free citizens’ from control and at the same time increase their capacity to keep a close watch on power.La compleja historia de Italia presenta algunas experiencias innovadoras así como bastantes anomalías peligrosas (por ejemplo el régimen mediáticamente controlado de SilvioBerlusconi, pero ha convertido también el país en el territorio perfecto para el surgimiento de anticuerpos que pueden contrastar dichas anomalías. Uno de estos anticuerpos es la sociedad civil basada en la web que gira en torno al blog Beppegrillo.it. Este artículo argumenta que la historia de dicha comunidad muestra el camino a seguir para la sociedad civil italiana. Grillo y el conjunto de sus seguidores blogeros han demostrado de hecho que nuevos medios de comunicación tienen el potencial de liberar a los ciudadanos del control y a su vez aumentar su capacidad para mantener estrechamente vigilado al poder.

  13. Into the 21st Century with the Istituto Geografico Polare "Silvio Zavatti" and its journal "Il Polo"

    Science.gov (United States)

    Casarini, M.

    2013-12-01

    By Maria Pia Casarini We are now nearing the 70th anniversary of the foundation of this unique institution, established in the city of Fermo in the Marche region of Italy by the late Prof. Silvio Zavatti (d. 1985), a true polar enthusiast working before the time when Italy had any official interest in the polar regions. The Institute has the largest and most comprehensive polar library in Italy; a polar museum with Inuit artifacts and relics of expeditions by the Duke of Abruzzi and Umberto Nobile; and it has published a quarterly journal, "Il Polo", since 1945. Given the increasing official role of Italy in both Arctic and Antarctic research, and the increasing interest of Italian institutions and individuals in the rapidly developing problems of Arctic development, governance and environmental protection, the Institute aims to play an increased role in assisting Italian polar efforts through its resources and scholarship. For instance, the Institute is a member of the Arctic Table at the Italian Foreign Ministry by which Italy's role as an observer in the Arctic Council is mapped. The journal "Il Polo" has become bilingual and is becoming a global polar journal with survey papers by distinguished polar leaders. We are linked with PEI (Polar Educators International), which spreads knowledge of the polar regions in schools.

    Full Text Available En la historiografía de la educación argentina la educación agrotécnica sigue siendo una temática secundaria, habitualmente abordada por historiadores que llegan a ella como variante de la historia social agraria que practican (Gutiérrez, 1996, 2007; Rodríguez Vázquez, 2007; Ascolani, 2011 Esta falta de conocimiento sobre la educación agraria ha provocado una inadecuada ponderación de la novedad de prácticas educacionales vinculadas a la enseñanza técnica fabril de mediados de siglo, sin reparar en que algunas de ellas ya habían sido desarrolladas en forma articulada en las escuelas de agricultura y ganadería. Tal es el caso de la relación equilibrada entre enseñanza práctica y teórica, la interacción entre escuela, economía y sociedad, la práctica profesional de los estudiantes, la educación extensiva y la distribución de una parte de lo producido entre los alumnos. El objetivo de esta ponencia es reconstruir esa experiencia de formación técnica agraria escolarizada y sus conexiones con el modelo de organización económico social que significaba la aplicación de las novedades de las ciencias y la difusión de la explotación granjera, tomando como estudio de caso la Escuela de Agricultura de Casilda, única escuela especial dependiente del Ministerio de Agricultura de la Nación instalada en dicha región.

    Using physical model, which describes the dynamics of plasma in the Filipov type plasma focus, we have simulated the pinch current for different voltages and pressures. The results show that for a specific voltage, there is an optimum pressure for which the pinch current has maximum value. A comparison between the simulated and the experimental data from dena shows that the maximum values of pinch current are obtained at the same pressure for which the maximum neutron yield is observed

    Full Text Available  Dopo gli anni 1980, la comunicazione politica delle e dei politici è diventata sempre più ibrida, mescolando intrattenimento e rappresentazione politica. Politici come Silvio Berlusconi, Beppe Grillo, ma anche Barack Obama pongono il proprio corpo al centro della rappresentazione mediatica, utilizzandolo non solo come canale di comunicazione, ma anche come fonte di intrattenimento. Prima ancora della “discesa in campo” di Silvio Berlusconi, il caso dell’ex presidente brasiliano Fernando Alfonso Collor de Mello mostra già nel 1989, in modo emblematico, come la fusione di politica e intrattenimento è diventata una delle principale tendenze della comunicazione politica. L’analisi della sua messa in scena da chiarezza a questa tendenza e rivela un fenomeno nuovo della messa in scena mediatica: l’apparizione del terzo corpo del politico.

    1979-01-01

    The effect of nonaxial and hexadecapole deformation on spectra of moun atoms is considered, the model of rigid nonaxial rotator being used. Experimental data on μ -238 U obtained on the JINR synchrocyclotron are presented. The effect of monopolar, quadrupolar and hexadecapolar parts of potential on muon spectrum is studied using a separated beam of negative 105 MeV/c muons, as the contribution of other harmonics is negligible. Wave functions of 238 U nucleus are determined in the framework of the Davydov-Filipov model. The values of charge distribution parameters obtained for 238 U are compared with available ones. The comparison shows that the effect of nuclear polarization on quadrupolar splitting of n→n-1 transitions decreases with the growth of n. Quadrupolar splitting of 4F→3D transitions is sufficiently large for experimental studies. Besides, vacuum polarization, radial charge distribution etc. produce an insignificant effect on the above transitions

Santini, a communist official, had spent the latest years in the Soviet Union and in Spain he would have also cooperated to the radio broadcast of the Italian antifascists. We think that Santini’s experience can be considered representative of a phenomenon that involved almost five thousand Italians. Under this consideration, we will try to investigate, in the long run, the reasons that led the young Italian antifascist to leave voluntarily for a far conflict like the Spanish one.

    Franz, Silvio

    I will show how a well known neural network model \\x9Dthe perceptro provides a simple solvable model of glassy behavior and jamming. The glassy minima of the energy function of this model can be studied in full analytic detail. This allows the identification of two kind of soft modes the first ones associated to the existence a marginal glass phase and a hierarchical structure of the energy landscape, the second ones associated to isostaticity and marginality of jamming. These results highlight the universality of the spectrum of normal modes in disordered systems, and open the way toward a detailed analytical understanding of the vibrational spectrum of low-temperature glasses. This work was supported by a Grant from the Simons Foundation (454941 to Silvio Franz).

    Full Text Available The review provides a critical survey of the book which is the first anthology on cognitive onomastics. The book comprises articles by ten onomasticians from Austria, Hungary, Germany, Poland, and Finland for the period 2004–2014, selected by the editor Silvio Brendler as those most clearly expressing ideas and the diversity of the given research field. The book also includes the work Of Names (1655 by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes, as the forerunner of the cognitive approach to language and to proper names. The articles are grouped into sections: Onomastics and Cognitive Science (1 article; Nature of Names (3 articles; Grammatical Description of Names (1 article; Meaning of Names (3 articles; Names in Literature (2 articles. Each article is analyzed in detail by the reviewer. The productivity of cognitive linguistics’ tools for onomastic research (such as Construction Grammar, the theory of prototypes, conceptual metaphor, axiological profiling, etc. is noted. A particular attention is drawn to the fact that onomastics not only borrows ideas and tools from «wider» cognitive linguistics, but also generates its own cognitive theories, such as Ernst Hansack’s theory of name and Silvio Brendler’s nomematics. In conclusion, the reviewer emphasizes the didactic and awarenessraising value of this anthology, as well as the relevance of the genre for this new and largely controversial research area: it provides the interested readers with an opportunity to make their own judgment in regards to cognitive onomastics, drawing information from primary sources. In general, getting acquainted with this book is very useful as it raises the concern of what cognitive onomastics is in our country and whether a similar book based on domestic material would help answer this question.

Essas idéias são correlacionadas, de um lado, às preocupações de Silvio Romero, Euclides da Cunha e Araripe Júnior com a adequação entre meio geográfico, raça e cultura, e, de outro lado, ao empenho do modernismo paulista em definir um caráter nacional brasileiro. Empenho discernível, no nível da representação simbólica, em Macunaíma e, no da teorização mais sistemática, em Retrato do Brasil, que chega a falar de eugenia ao discutir o futuro tipo étnico brasileiro.The article purports to examine the ideas which the main characters of Canaã, by Graça Aranha, express on the relations between race and culture, as well as on the racial melting process and the future whitening of the population of Brazil in a brotherly and solar Utopia. These ideas are correlated, on one side, to the concern of Silvio Romero, Euclides da Cunha and Araripe Jr. with the adequation between geography, race and culture; on the other side, to the concern of S.

This concern can be seen, on the level of symbolical representation, in Macunaíma and, on the level of a more systematic theorizing, in Portrait of Brazil, which goes so far as to mention eugenics when discussing the future Brazilian ethnical type.

    Since the first experiments with plasma focus facilities in 1960' s. These devices are known as intense sources of neutron when the working gas contains deuterium with a proper density. Most of the emitted neutrons are produced by D-D reactions, but the mechanism of these reactions in not still clear completely. In this paper, the results of experimental investigations of neutron emission characteristics in D ena p lasma focus facility (Filipov type, 90 kJ, 25 kV) over a range of discharge voltages and pressures are presented. Out working gases are D 2 and D 2+%1 Kr, two different conic and flat insert anodes were employed. We have simultaneously measured the total emission in our experiments for analyzing the neutron generation mechanism in this device. We have found the upper and lower pressure limits and the optimum pressure for neutron generation, and we have observed the double pluses structure of neutron signal for the first time in this device. Form the experimental results, it seems that both thermonuclear and no thermonuclear mechanisms are always present in neutron generation, but their contribution in the total yield is strongly dependent on experimental conditions (initial pressure, discharge voltage, gas admixture, etc.). It was found that the range of variation of total neutron yield and neutron emission anisotropy factor for experiments with D + %1 Kr is wider than experiments with D 2, and the best neutron emission results belongs to discharges in D 2 + %1 Kr with a conic insert anode. By employing D 2 + %1 Kr with a conic insert anode, and varying pressure between 0.3-2 torr at a discharge voltage of 16 kV, it can be deduced that in low pressures ( n ∝ I α ρ ∝E α / 2 was found about 3.62 for D 2 + %1 Kr and 3 for D 2

  19. L'Aquila's reconstruction challenges: has Italy learned from its previous earthquake disasters?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ozerdem, Alpaslan; Rufini, Gianni

    2013-01-01

    Italy is an earthquake-prone country and its disaster emergency response experiences over the past few decades have varied greatly, with some being much more successful than others. Overall, however, its reconstruction efforts have been criticised for being ad hoc, delayed, ineffective, and untargeted. In addition, while the emergency relief response to the L'Aquila earthquake of 6 April 2009-the primary case study in this evaluation-seems to have been successful, the reconstruction initiative got off to a very problematic start. To explore the root causes of this phenomenon, the paper argues that, owing to the way in which Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has politicised the process, the L'Aquila reconstruction endeavour is likely to suffer problems with local ownership, national/regional/municipal coordination, and corruption. It concludes with a set of recommendations aimed at addressing the pitfalls that may confront the L'Aquila reconstruction process over the next few years. © 2013 The Author(s).

Diagnosis of xerostomia and salivary gland hypofunction is dependent upon a careful and detailed history and thorough oral examination. There exist many options for treatment and symptom management: salivary stimulants, topical agents, saliva substitutes, and systemic sialogogues. The aim of this review is to investigate the current state of knowledge on management and treatment of patients affected by xerostomia and/or hyposalivation.

    Full Text Available El presente escrito está inspirado en la canción titulada La fábula de los tres hermanos, del cantautor cubano Silvio Rodríguez Domínguez. Se espera que a través de estos tres apartes de la letra de esta canción, consecuentemente seleccionados, se genere una reflexión en torno a la actividad de generar proyectos de investigación en la escuela secundaria, o como se suele denominar actualmente investigación en el aula, al respecto se abordan las complicaciones, tópicos y demás problemáticas que eventualmente se pueden presentar en la multiplicidad de compromisos cotidianos ante los cuales se ve enfrentado el docente, al momento de desarrollar un proyecto de investigación en una comunidad educativa desde la metodología de la etnografía, hoy usada en los modelos de investigación en educación y pedagogía. Este documento tiene por objetivo generar una reflexión en torno a la mirada del maestro de escuela secundaria, ante el acto de investigar su contexto escolar de trabajo, y el papel de las universidades, en lo que concierne a la formación de licenciados con competencias en investigación educativa.

    Full Text Available Propõe-se um exercício acerca da memória da resistência à ditadura no documentarismo brasileiro contemporâneo. Monumentalização e intimidade são as noções guias das análises de Hércules 56 (Silvio Da-Rin, 2006 e Diário de uma busca (Flavia Castro, 2010. No caso do primeiro filme, sugere-se que os cânones do documentário de entrevista, primando pela coesão, estabelecem uma memória monumental e conciliadora. Quanto ao segundo filme, sustenta-se que a perspectiva íntima, plena de hesitações, pode sinalizar a permanência de lacunas na conciliação democrática brasileira. O contraste entre memória celebrativa e memória introspectiva ressalta a necessidade de crítica da impunidade presente.

  5. From Opera to Real Democracy: Popular Constitutionalism and Web 2.0

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available On March 17, 2011 the conductor Riccardo Muti stood in the orchestra pit at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and, in the presence of the Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, and the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, denounced the Italian government’s cuts to funding for the arts and culture. He then invited the entire audience to join the opera’s chorus in an encore of Va’ Pensiero, the hymn of the Hebrew slaves in Nabucco, to protest the cuts. Within two days of the sing-a-long, the Italian government reversed the course it set more than ten months before and agreed to a tax that would be used to restore funds to the arts and culture budget. This article traces how and why these acts of protest in Italy developed, succeeded, and then were appropriated by transnational activists interested in encouraging popular constitutionalism. Because the entire process made considerable use of Facebook, blogs, YouTube, and Twitter, this case study simultaneously explores how a popular protest became a successful expression of popular constitutionalism, and considers how the messages of that protest evolved across a transnational public sphere that encompassed Web 2.0.

    Gaze-following is a pivotal social behaviour that, although largely automatic, is permeable to high-order variables like political affiliation. A few years ago we reported that the gaze of Italian right-wing voters was selectively captured by the gaze of their leader Silvio Berlusconi. This effect was particularly evident in voters who saw themselves as similar to Berlusconi. Two years later, we were able to run the present follow-up study because Berlusconi's popularity had drastically dropped due to sex and political scandals, and he resigned from office. In a representative subsample of our original group, we investigated whether perceived similarity and gaze-following reflected Berlusconi's loss in popularity. We were also able to test the same hypothesis in an independent group of right-wing voters when their leader, Renata Polverini, resigned as Governor of 'Regione Lazio' due to political scandals. Our results show that the leaders' fall in popularity paralleled the reduction of their gaze's attracting power, as well as the decrease in similarity perceived by their voters. The less similar right-wing voters felt to their leader, the less they followed his/her gaze. Thus, the present experimental findings suggest that gaze-following can be modulated by complex situational and dispositional factors such as leader's popularity and voter-leader perceived similarity.

El propósito es debatir lo grecoquimbaya o grecolatino, que más allá del sentido irónico que envuelve ambas expresiones –utilizadas por escritores influyentes capitalinos, miembros del Grupo de Barranquilla y simpatizantes del Nadaísmo–, toca una forma de la cultura colombiana y hace visible la complejidad de unas tradiciones literarias en las que tienen lugar las disímiles expresiones artísticas de Miguel Antonio Caro, José Asunción Silva, Guillermo Valencia, José Eustasio Rivera y León de Greiff.

    Full Text Available Este artigo analisa dois momentos decisivos no âmbito da história das idéias no Brasil. Imagens e sínteses do Brasil tornaram-se referências fundamentais na história da cultura brasileira, especialmente aquelas produzidas por uma “tradição realista”, que vem desde o século XIX, por intermédio dos escritos do Visconde do Uruguai, e prossegue com Silvio Romero, com Alberto Torres, com Oliveira Vianna e com Alberto Guerreiro Ramos. Tais autores deram vida à imagem do Brasil cindido em dois brasis: o país legal e o país real. A partir de 1902, o marco fundamental dessa tradição passará a ser Euclides da Cunha, autor que projetou o sertão como “metáfora para a nação”. Nos anos cinqüentas, ao redor de Anísio Teixeira, intelectuais como Antonio Candido, Florestan Fernandes, Luiz Pereira, Fernando de Azevedo e muitos antropólogos mergulharam novamente nas metáforas euclidianas e compuseram novas imagens sobre a cultura regional no Brasil que se modernizava

    Purpose: The compression of a nervous structure by an aberrant vessel may be asymptomatic or produce an important symptoms, in these cases CT and MRI show relevant information. Materials and Methods: Between January 1998 and March 2001, we studied 27 patients: 8 with trigeminal neuralgia, 7 with hemi facial spasm, 4 vertigo and tinnitus, 2 hemianopsia, 1 with neuralgia of the amygdalin fossa, 1 with bitonal voice, 1 with tongue deviation with fascicular movements, 2 essential hypertension and 1 with severe headache. All of them had a neurologic evaluation from 2 specialists and 2 neuro radiologists interpreted the results. Results: The CT and RMI images with special sequences allowed to prove the compression of the entry segments of the V, VII, IX, X and XII cranial nerves, of the optic chiasma and the ventrolateral aspect of the medulla oblongata in close relation with the vasopressor centre. Also they demonstrate a rare vessel in the Silvio aqueduct avoiding the normal flow of the CSF. Of the total of patients that were studied, 37% had surgical confirmation. Conclusion: CT and RMI are sensitive and specific methods for the detection of vascular compressions of nervous structures. (author)

    Full Text Available Dagli albori della Seconda Repubblica in Italia,  le strategie di dominio sui mass media dell’ex premier Silvio Berlusconi hanno avuto un effetto considerevole sull’immaginario culturale italiano. In un approccio multisensoriale e multimediale alla scrittura, il collettivo Wu Ming mette in questione i paradigmi culturali che negli ultimi venti anni sono diventati egemonici. L’esperienza di un romanzo dei Wu Ming va ben oltre la parola stampata poiché cerca di stimolare tutti i cinque sensi per arricchire il modo in cui il lettore vive quello che c’è sulla pagina, dimostrando esempi chiari della «convergence culture» coniata da Henry Jenkins. Questo saggio esamina l’interazione tra parola e immagine messa in atto dal collettivo tramite il sito Pinterest e illustra come questo aspetto del loro progetto rappresenti un microcosmo di un approccio complessivo alla creazione estetica e alla pratica culturale. Inoltre, questo saggio descrive in che modo il processo collettivo di consumo portato avanti dai Wu Ming contribuisca alla formazione delle «communities of sentiment» di Arjun Appadurai e alla «intelligenza collettiva» di Jenkins. Queste sono formazioni che rivitalizzano il concetto di cultura popolare per la nostra epoca digitale e offrono un’alternativa ad un immaginario culturale italiano sovra-determinato dalle pratiche del Berlusconismo.

    Full Text Available In one of his last appearances as presenter of Newsnight (BBC 20 May 2014, veteran journalist Jeremy Paxman interviewed Silvio Berlusconi. Three minutes into the voiced-over interpreter-mediated dialogue, the journalist known as "Newsnight’s Rottweiler-in-chief" asked: "Is it true you called [Angela Merkel] an unfuckable lardarse?" Momentarily flustered, Berlusconi toyed with the earpiece from which he listened to the interpreter translate. Recomposing himself he replied: "Non ho mai, in venti anni di politica, insultato nessuno", [I have never, in twenty years of politics, insulted anyone]. While the veracity of Berlusconi’s response is debateable, the issues at stake in this contribution are others. Combining approaches from ethnomethodology with critical discourse analysis (CDA, the article examines three aspects of the communicative event. The first focuses on its technical and linguistic construction, and the (instrumental? choice of voice-over actor. The second aspect asks what pprompted the BBC’s decision to air the offending language, albeit through translation. Jeremy Paxman’s views on the role of interpreting and voiceover in the construction of the interview were sought, providing insight on the social actor’s perspective. The third aspect relates to the discursive construction of the event and outlines the intertextual chains (Fairclough 1995 it generated. A small dataset of British newspaper articles on the interview is analysed. Finally, the contribution offers some closing remarks.

En este proceso, Libia puede ser considerado como uno de los países más importantes. El régimen dirigido por Gadafi fue derrotado después de la aplicación de las sanciones de la ONU contra el país. Como resultado de ello, los ingresos del petróleo también disminuyeron y, como respuesta, Trípoli promociónó a nivel gubernamental la migración de África hacia Europa. Después del cambio de milenio fue Roma la que procuró la cancelación de las sanciones contra Libia. Pero la situación se hizo intolerable a medida que el número de inmigrantes que llegaban a las islas del sur de Italia aumentaba.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the role of the italian social movement in Italy (MSI in the twentieth century. The key to understand its influence would lie in the peculiarities of the political regime emerged from the ruins of fascism. With the proclamation of the republic many fascists enrolled in the ranks of the christian Democrats and other parties of the right, leaving the MSI as sole heir of fascism. That did not stop working with the christian Democrats through the strategy of «inserimento». When the christian Democrats began their approach to the italian socialist Party, the MSI was clearly excluded and located in a relatively marginal position. Its later resurgence may be explained considering the radical changes in italian politics in the sixties and seventies; circumstances which favoured the arrival of Giorgio Almirante as leader of MSI in 1969. In that period, the MSI presented itself as the political party of restored order and ready to fight subversion (communist itself. During the 80s, the MSI moved between the ‘strategy-Party Protest’ leaded by Almirante and the idea of a ‘civil society Party’ defended by Rauti. In the end, the MSI, after the change of leadership of Almirante by Gianfranco Fini, began a new path which stated loyalty to the values of fascism, strengthened by the crisis of communism. This MSI new discourse eased its growth in circumstances in which the traditional parties and the Italian Republican system as a whole were practically about to collapse. Subsequently, the post-fascist Alianza Nacional emerged; a political formation which later on merged into Forza Italia, leaded by Silvio Berlusconi.

    Full Text Available Silvio Caccia, Roberto William Invernizzi, Alessandro Nobili, Luca Pasina IRCCS-Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri, Milan, Italy Abstract: Cariprazine is a potential antipsychotic awaiting approval from the US Food and Drug Administration. It is a dopamine D2- and D3-receptor partial agonist, with higher affinity for D3 receptors, as opposed to the D2 antagonism of most older antipsychotic agents. Like most lipophilic antipsychotics, it undergoes extensive hepatic metabolism by cytochrome P450 (CYP, mainly the highly variable 3A4, with the formation of active metabolites. However, the parent compound – particularly its active didesmethyl derivative – is cleared very slowly, with elimination half-lives in schizophrenic patients ranging from 2–5 days for cariprazine to 2–3 weeks for didesmethyl-cariprazine. Exposure to the latter was several times that for cariprazine, although didesmethyl-cariprazine did not reach steady state within the 3 weeks of 12.5 mg/day dosing. Preliminary information on its therapeutic role comes from press releases and a few abstracts presented at scientific meetings. In short-term controlled trials, it was more effective than placebo in reducing positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia, with an effective dose range of 1.5–12 mg/day. Although cariprazine was associated with a higher incidence of akathisia and extrapyramidal side effects than placebo, it did not cause weight gain, metabolic abnormalities, prolactin increase, or corrected QT prolongation. Similarly, cariprazine's efficacy and tolerability for the treatment of bipolar disorder (manic/mixed and depressive episodes was established in the dose range of 3–12 mg/day, although again no long-term data are available. Well-designed clinical trials, mainly direct "head-to-head" comparisons with other second-generation antipsychotic agents, are needed to define the therapeutic role and safety profile of cariprazine in schizophrenia and

Entre esses encontros, que tiveram um papel pedagógico fundamental - muito embora alguns deles tenham sido breves em forma de workshop ou conversa, estão as aulas de J. A. Mannis, Almeida Prado, Livio Tragtenberg, Fernando Iazzetta, Silvio Ferraz, Salvatore Sciarrino, Chaya Czernowin, Pierluigi Billone, Franck Bedrossian, Tristan Murail, Stefano Gervasoni, Michael Jarrell e Philippe Manoury. Minha experiência com o grupo de improvisação Abaetetuba, e em duo com Celio Barros e Florentin Ginot, constituiu meu grande laboratório prático, desenvolvendo escuta e resposta em forma de sons, que considero como uma importante etapa de gestação do meu projeto artístico.

    Full Text Available This paper is the result of the doctorate research thesis developed by the author in the School of Architecture and Urbanism of the University of São Paulo-FAUUSP, under the advisory of Prof. Silvio Soares Macedo. It aims to deep some discussions held during the oral examination by the professors Ana Gabriela Godinho Lima, Euler Sandeville, Miranda M. Magnoli and Nidia Nacib Pontuschka. The thesis focused here is called “The role of Landscape Discipline in the Education of Architects and Urbanists”. The title of this article itself is a result of the comments made by Prof. Euler Sandeville when he suggested to enhance the original thesis title, providing a more comprehensive, complex and complete idea about the landscape discipline. The reader will not found the answers to the questions posed, however he or she will be invited to reflect about the landscape discipline concepts and contempts and will be motivared to search for an identity to the universe presented here. We expect to promote a collective construction about the discipline and its roles. The thesis itself opens up the discussion about the architect and urbanist education quality, by explaining the desired ethic, by reviewing the responsabilities, the contempts and proceedings of the Landscape Design courses and by questioning their effective contribution to the Architecture and Urbanism schools in Brazil. The hypothesis being demonstrated is that the Landscape architecture disciplines are important to the profession because they enable the architect and urbanist to undertake the legal competences, established by Brazilian legislation, and allows this professional to assume the ethical commitments with the questions and problems related to the territory occupation issues, dealing with environmental resources and public spaces, in the most variable scales.

  4. Libyan change means an attempt to obtain foreign investments

    Libyan president Muammar Kaddafi is progressively getting from international isolation which is taking place for a decade. Libya admitted a responsibility in assassination on the airplane of PanAm Company over Scottish town Lockenrbie from 1988. Libyan Arab Jamahiriya is willing to pay out totally up to 2.7 billion USD to the mourners of the victims. Consequently UN sanctions from 1992 on Libya were cancelled in 1999. These sanctions were completely cancelled last year in the autumn. In the end of the last year Libya gave up the program of development of mass destruction arms and USA consequently cancelled a prohibition for USA citizens to travel to Libya. However American economic sanctions still remain valid. M. Kaddafi also broke diplomatic blockade in the last weeks, when Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi and British premier Toni Blair visited him. British-Dutch concern Royal Dutch-Shell obtained in Libya important contact closely before visit of Toni Blair. Italy covers a quarter of its own oil demand by import from Libya. After breaking up of American sanctions the duel between American and British companies on obtaining of the best position in the country will start again. UN embargo caused Libya loss of billion USD of export incomes. The incomes from oil export represented 13.4 billion USD in the last year. In October of last year Libyan premier Sh. Ghani published a list of 361 companies in energetics, metallurgy, building and agriculture, which Libya wants to privatise during this year. Importers of Libyan oil, as well as the companies, which are interested in licences for oil mining in Libya are also analysed in the paper

  5. Cardiac cachexia and muscle wasting: definition, physiopathology, and clinical consequences

Cachexia is a predictor of reduced survival, independent of important parameters such as age, heart failure functional class, and functional capacity. Muscle and fat wasting can also predict adverse outcome during cardiac failure. Only more recently were these conditions defined in International Consensus. Considering that heart failure is an inflammatory disease, cardiac cachexia has been diagnosed by finding a body weight loss >5%, in the absence of other diseases and independent of other criteria. Muscle wasting has been defined as lean appendicular mass corrected for height squared of 2 standard deviations or more below the mean for healthy individuals between 20 years and 30 years old from the same ethnic group. The etiology of heart failure-associated cachexia and muscle wasting is multifactorial, and the underlying physiopathological mechanisms are not completely understood. The most important factors are reduced food intake, gastrointestinal alterations, immunological activation, neurohormonal abnormalities, and an imbalance between anabolic and catabolic processes. Cachexia and muscle wasting have clinical consequences in several organs and systems including the gastrointestinal and erythropoietic systems, and the heart, previously affected by the primary disease. We hope that a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in their physiopathology will allow the development of pharmacological and nonpharmacological therapies to effectively prevent and treat heart failure-induced cachexia and muscle wasting before significant body

    This volume contains the invited and contributed papers presented at the 14th Conference on Theoretical Nuclear Physics in Italy held in Cortona, Italy, from 29-31 October, 2013. The meeting was held at the Palazzone, an elegant Renaissance Villa, commissioned by the Cardinal Silvio Passerini (1469-1529), Bishop of Cortona, and presently owned by the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. The aim of this biennial Conference is to bring together Italian theorists working in various fields of nuclear physics to discuss their latest results and confront their points of view in a lively and informal way. This offers the opportunity to stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations between different research groups. The Conference was attended by 46 participants, coming from 13 Italian Universities and 11 Laboratories and Sezioni of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare - INFN. The program of the conference, prepared by the Organizing Committee (Ignazio Bombaci, Aldo Covello, Laura Elisa Marcucci and Sergio Rosati) focused on the following main topics: Few-Nucleon Systems Nuclear Structure Nuclear Matter and Nuclear Dynamics Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions and Quark-Gluon Plasma Nuclear Astrophysics Nuclear Physics with Electroweak Probes Structure of Hadrons and Hadronic Matter. In the last session of the Conference there were two invited review talks related to experimental activities of great current interest. Giacomo De Angelis from the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro spoke about the INFN SPES radioactive ion beam project. Sara Pirrone, INFN Sezione di Catania, gave a talk on the symmetry energy and isospin physics with the CHIMERA detector. Finally, Mauro Taiuti (Università di Genova), National Coordinator of the INFN-CSN3 (Nuclear Physics Experiments), reported on the present status and future challenges of experimental nuclear physics in Italy. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of INFN who helped make the conference possible. I Bombaci, A Covello

    The 12th European Workshop on Advanced Control and Diagnosis (ACD 2015) took place at the Research Centre NTIS - New Technologies for the Information Society, Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, Czech Republic, on November 19 - 20, 2015. The annual European Workshop on Advanced Control and Diagnosis has been organized since 2003 by Control Engineering departments of several European universities in Germany, France, the UK, Poland, Italy, Hungary, and Denmark to bring together senior and junior academics and engineers from diverse fields of automatic control, fault detection, and signal processing. The workshop provides an opportunity for researchers and developers to present their recent theoretical developments, practical applications, or even open problems. It also offers a great opportunity for industrial partners to express their needs and priorities and to review the current activities in the fields. A total of 74 papers have been submitted for ACD 2015. Based on the peer reviews 48 papers were accepted for the oral presentation and 10 papers for the poster presentation. The accepted papers covered areas of control theory and applications, identification, estimation, signal processing, and fault detection. In addition, four excellent plenary lectures were delivered by Prof. Fredrik Gustafsson (Automotive Sensor Mining for Tire Pressure Monitoring), Prof. Vladimír Havlena (Advanced Process Control for Energy Efficiency), Prof. Silvio Simani (Advanced Issues on Wind Turbine Modelling and Control), and Prof. Robert Babuška (Learning Control in Robotics). The ACD 2015 was for the first time in the workshop history co-sponsored by the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). On behalf of the ACD 2015 organising committee, we would like to thank all those who prepared and submitted papers, participated in the peer review process, supported, and attended the workshop.

    Full Text Available Luciana Littizzetto, postfeminism, and the dangerous art of playing the foolThe goal of this paper is to study the performative strategies by which the comic persona of Luciana Littizzetto deconstructs post-patriarchal representations of femininity and womanhood in contemporary Italian popular culture. I argue that Littizzetto’s character(s (on television and in films engages in a ‘postfeminist’ critique of the system of sex and power, in which many women have recently found their fortune, and that is primarily embodied by the showgirls and/or female politicians supported by the ex-Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. By positioning herself as the woman who is excluded from the circle of power to which other (beautiful and attractive women have access, Littizzetto’s character(s unveils the contradictions that embed ‘postfeminist’ models of female emancipation, blessed (or cursed by the archaic power of beauty, as well as empowered by sexual liberation. I will purposefully use the attribute ‘postfeminist’ to describe both the comic subject and the female ‘White Clowns’ in Littizzetto’s comic performance. In this way, I hope to highlight the complexity of the attribute itself, rather than using the term as a fixed category of analysis. In my view, ‘postfeminism’ indicates both continuities between contemporary practices of female emancipation and second wave feminism, as well as a dismissal. In my essay, I will show that Littizzetto’s comic act does not aim at denigrating the ‘other’ woman and lacks the underlining moralistic attitude of other critical voices, such as Lorella Zanardo and her Il corpo delle donne. Rather, it is crafted against a ‘queen’ whose power is not denied but rather acknowledged and therefore naked. By physical gestures and verbal expressions, her living and acting persona ultimately exposes the masquerade of femininity, both her own and that of others.

    Full Text Available Die deutsche Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts ist entscheidend durch den Expressionismus (1910–1925 geprägt. Seine Formierung und Entfaltung wurde von Anfang an von einer starken theoretischen Reflexion begleitet. Das wesentliche Merkmal der zeitgenössischen Manifeste und Dokumente war die Bestrebung, den Expressionismus von den anderen Richtungen und Tendenzen der Zeit abzugrenzen und die Andersartigkeit der „Ausdruckskunst“ hervorzuheben. Die Bezeichnungen des Expressionismus wurden vielfach durch die Schlagwörter „Wesen“, „Bewegung“, „Vision“, „der neue Mensch“ u. a. bestimmt. Im Jahre 1933 wurde die Rezeption des Expressionismus in Deutschland zwangsweise unterbrochen und konnte erst nach 1945 wieder einsetzen.Die Darstellungsformen des Expressionismus in der deutschen Literaturkritik richteten sich je nach der dominierenden Literaturmethode. So rückt am Ende der 50er und in den 60er Jahren unter dem Einfluss der werkimmanenten Kritik die Stil- und Formfrage in den Vordergrund. Man versucht, die stilistischen Dominanten der einzelnen Gattungen sowie des individuellen Schaffens einzelner Autoren herauszuarbeiten. Jedoch zeichnet sich auch die Tendenz ab, die Literatur des Expressionismus im Zusammenhang mit anderen Bereichen der Kunst (Malerei und Musik, derWissenschaft (Philosophie, Soziologie, der Technik zu betrachten. Die 70er Jahre gelten in der deutschen Literaturwissenschaft als eine Kulmination der Expressionismusforschung. Silvio Vietta und Hans-Georg Kemper modifizieren zum Teil den Begriff und meinen, dass man die Literatur des Expressionismus nicht aus dem Epochenzusammenhang lösen darf. Der Expressionismus kann erst im Kontext der zeitgenössischen Wissenschaft, Philosophie, Soziologie und Massenkultur adäquat erschlossen werden; am sinnvollsten erscheint dabei die hermeneutische Methode. Wolfgang Rothe ist der Ansicht, dass der Expressionismus keineswegs nur als ein auf die Sprachkunst beschr

    Apartir de 1978, siendo residente de Reumatología iniciamos el estudio de las vasculitis en el Hospital San Juan de Dios de Bogotá. Se escribió el primer texto de vasculitis necrotizante que ganó el premio Salvat en 1980 y se publicó en 1982: Este libro tenía como objeto informar el tema a la comunidad médica.

    Durante mi estadía en Barranquilla, se realizó una descripción de 9 pacientes con los doctores Eduardo Egea, Gloria Garavito y Silvio Severini sobre vasculitis linfomonocítica. Previamente se conocían algunos informes en la literatura médica como el realizado por Mc’Duffie fundador del Laboratorio de la Clínica Mayo en Rochester y Jorge Maldonado quienes describieron una vasculitis asociada a urticaria y se documentó una precipitina C1q, pero que no reunía los criterios de lupus eritematoso sistémico.

    Otra publicación era la de Soter quien describió dos tipos de vasculitis, la leucocitoclastica y la linfomonocitica. Con estos estudios previos, Iglesias y col estudiamos 9 pacientes que consultaron por urticaria, lesiones eritematosas, papulas, etc. Las lesiones de urticaria tenían una característica importante y era que permanecían por más de 24 horas en el sitio de la piel comprometida, eran de tipo urente y al tomar una biopsia de esta lesión se observaba un infiltrado linfoóplasmocitario; posiblemente su patogénesis está relacionada con un mecanismo de tipo celular y participan una serie de proteínas (como integrinas, selectinas y moléculas de adhesión.

    Se documenta que las vasculitis linfomonocíticas se asocian a algunos medicamentos, procesos infecciosos, o son secundarias a algunas enfermedades del tejido conjuntivo como el lupus y el síndrome de Sjögren primario.

In this issue, we have six articles that all carry, I believe, important theoretical and managerial contributions, as well as suggestions of new research questions. I highlight some of these contributions this editorial. In "THE PROFILE OF THE UNIVERSITY MANAGER OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN BRAZIL", Fernanda Geremias Leal, Rafaela Ribeiro Céspedes and Luciane Stallivieri outline the profile of the international cooperation managers of the Brazilian federal public universities. From the data analysis of 46 of these institutions, they identify the positive aspects and the problems of the positioning of the international relations department in the university structure. It also analyses the personal experience of managers with activities of an international nature. Given the relevance and timeliness of the theme of internationalization of universities in the exchange of students and professors among others, and given the lack of information about these activities in Brazilian universities, this is a timely and essential contribution for those who research university management in general and its internationalization in particular. In POLITICAL PERSPECTIVES OF RELATIONSHIP NETWORKS TO INTERNATIONALIZATION OF FIRMS IN AN EMERGING COUNTRY, Jefferson Marlon Monticelli, Silvio Luís de Vasconcellos e Ivan Lapuente Garrido analyze, using the political perspective of neo-institutionalism, how institutions, especially government, influence the internationalization of Brazilian Wine sector They contribute to the understanding of how the political relationship takes within the economic sectors and between government and business sectors occur.

Outro ponto a destacar é a ampliação do conselho editorial, com a integração nesta edição de dois renomados pesquisadores em suas áreas de conhecimento: Jacques Gleyse (Laboratoire LIRDEF, Faculté d'Education, Ecole Supérieure du Professorat et de l'Education da Université de Montpellier 2 – França e Silvio Roberto Lucena Tavares (Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária-Embrapa Solos, Brasil. Este processo ocorrerá de forma intensa, com o objetivo de internacionalizar o conselho e de associá-lo a centros de pesquisa inovadores. Além disso, convém ressaltar que este canal de divulgação científica reflete as ações de publicações de artigos em acesso aberto, um compromisso desta editoria com a democratização do conhecimento científico e tecnológico. O país que está em processo de construção deve possibilitar a cooperação entre as instituições de pesquisa e a sociedade, de forma a elevar o desenvolvimento sustentável brasileiro, com reflexos naqueles que o edificam e na qualidade de vida do mundo. O volume ora em circulação apresenta um total de 21 artigos caracterizados pelo enfoque multidisciplinar do periódico, ou seja, dotado de contribuições nas áreas de educação, ensino de ciências, engenharia, gestão/administração e turismo. A motivação entre os autores, os avaliadores, o conselho editorial e os leitores criam um ambiente propício para comemorar o Ano Trinta da publicação e muito além dos primeiros dez anos online – eles são dignos desta grande comemoração. Convido-os à leitura. Se gostarem, compartilhem, pois difundir ciência é alterar os caminhos dos nossos passos. Prof. José Yvan Pereira Leite

    concepção de ética e de cidadania gestados na história da cultura protestante com Martin Lutero e John Amos Comenius como expoentes da reforma luterana e da construção de um projeto pedagógico humanista, respectivamente, em consonância com os valores da pessoa humana O trabalho de Maria Juraci Maia Cavalcante Estado absoluto e ensino das primeiras letras: as escolas régias (1772-1794, na tese de Áurea Adão (1997 investiga um dos períodos mais controversos da história da educação no Brasil e em Portugal - o da reforma pombalina. Com uma abordagem inovadora esta pesquisa contribui de maneira significativa para uma maior compreensão deste período histórico.

    Encerrando a seção de artigos o professor Danilo R. Streck faz um estudo comparativo entre Paulo Freire (Brasil e Lorenzo Milani (Itália, tendo como eixo da reflexão o caráter radical e revolucionário de suas práticas educativas. Evidencia a importância de ler comparativamente autores que em seus contextos sociais e históricos ousaram propor alternativas pedagógicas emancipatórias.

    Em nossa tradicional seção Documentos, o professor Jorge Nascimento nos apresenta o trabalho de Silvio Romero, um dos maiores expoentes da literatura brasileira.

    Esperamos que nossos leitores possam desfrutar com prazer as contribuições que estes investigadores trazem à comunidade científica.

The detailed explanation is found in the text. How does SINFONI work? What is Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS)? The idea of IFS is to obtain a spectrum of each defined spatial element ("spaxel") in the field-of-view. Several techniques to do this are available - in SINFONI, the slicer principle is applied. This involves (PR Photo 24i/04) that * the two-dimensional field-of-view is cut into slices, the so-called slitlets (short slits in contrast to normal long-slit spectroscopy), * the slitlets are then arranged next to each other to form a pseudo-long-slit, * a grating is used to disperse the light, and * the photons are detected with a Near-InfraRed detector. Following data reduction, the set of generated spectra can be re-arranged in the computer to form a 3-dimensional "data cube" of two spatial, and one wavelength dimension. Thus the term "3D-Spectroscopy" is sometimes used for IFS. Appendix B: Linus' orbital motion around
