    2010-01-01

    How does the analysis and evaluation of argumentation depend on the dialogue type in which the argumentation has been put forward? This paper focuses on argumentative bluff in eristic discussion. Argumentation cannot be presented without conveying the pretence that it is dialectically reasonable, as well as, at least to some degree, rhetorically effective. Within eristic discussion it can be profitable to engage in bluff with respect to such claims. However, it will be argued that such bluffi...

  8. Seasonal variation of tropospheric bromine monoxide over the Rann of Kutch salt marsh seen from space

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    C. Hörmann

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available The Rann of Kutch (India and Pakistan is one of the largest salt deserts in the world. Being a so-called "seasonal salt marsh", it is regularly flooded during the Indian summer monsoon. We present 10 years of bromine monoxide (BrO satellite observations by the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI over the Great and Little Rann of Kutch. OMI spectra were analysed using Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS and revealed recurring high BrO vertical column densities (VCDs of up to 1.4  ×  1014 molec cm−2 during April/May, but no significantly enhanced column densities during the monsoon season (June–September. In the following winter months, the BrO VCDs are again slightly enhanced while the salty surface dries up. We investigate a possible correlation of enhanced reactive bromine concentrations with different meteorological parameters and find a strong relationship between incident UV radiation and the total BrO abundance. In contrast, the second Global Ozone Monitoring Instrument (GOME-2 shows about 4 times lower BrO VCDs over the Rann of Kutch than found by OMI and no clear seasonal cycle is observed. One reason for this finding might be the earlier local overpass time of GOME-2 compared to OMI (around 09:30 vs. 13:30 LT, as the ambient conditions significantly differ for both satellite instruments at the time of the measurements. Further possible reasons are discussed and mainly attributed to instrumental issues. OMI additionally confirms the presence of enhanced BrO concentrations over the Dead Sea valley (Israel/Jordan, as suggested by former ground-based observations. The measurements indicate that the Rann of Kutch salt marsh is probably one of the strongest natural point sources of reactive bromine compounds outside the polar regions and is therefore supposed to have a significant impact on local and regional ozone chemistry.

    Rahman, Md Eamin; Islam, Rashedul; Islam, Shahidul; Mondal, Shakhinur Islam; Amin, Md Ruhul

    2012-04-01

    MicroRNA (miRNA) is a special class of short noncoding RNA that serves pivotal function of regulating gene expression. The computational prediction of new miRNA candidates involves various methods such as learning methods and methods using expression data. This article has proposed a reliable model - miRANN which is a supervised machine learning approach. MiRANN used known pre-miRNAs as positive set and a novel negative set from human CDS regions. The number of known miRNAs is now huge and diversified that could cover almost all characteristics of unknown miRNAs which increases the quality of the result (99.9% accuracy, 99.8% sensitivity, 100% specificity) and provides a more reliable prediction. MiRANN performs better than other state-of-the-art approaches and declares to be the most potential tool to predict novel miRNAs. We have also tested our result using a previous negative set. MiRANN, opens new ground using ANN for predicting pre-miRNAs with a promise of better performance. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  18. Structural analysis of viral infectivity factor of HIV type 1 and its interaction with A3G, EloC and EloB.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kauê Santana da Costa

    Full Text Available The virion infectivity factor (Vif is an accessory protein, which is essential for HIV replication in host cells. Vif neutralizes the antiviral host protein APOBEC3 through recruitment of the E3 ubiquitin ligase complex.Fifty thousand Vif models were generated using the ab initio relax protocol of the Rosetta algorithm from sets of three- and nine-residue fragments using the fragment Monte Carlo insertion-simulated annealing strategy, which favors protein-like features, followed by an all-atom refinement. In the protocol, a constraints archive was used to define the spatial relationship between the side chains from Cys/His residues and zinc ions that formed the zinc-finger motif that is essential for Vif function. We also performed centroids analysis and structural analysis with respect to the formation of the zinc-finger, and the residue disposal in the protein binding domains. Additionally, molecular docking was used to explore details of Vif-A3G and Vif-EloBC interactions. Furthermore, molecular dynamics simulation was used to evaluate the stability of the complexes Vif-EloBC-A3G and Vif-EloC.The zinc in the HCCH domain significantly alters the folding of Vif and changes the structural dynamics of the HCCH region. Ab initio modeling indicated that the Vif zinc-finger possibly displays tetrahedral geometry as suggested by Mehle et al. (2006. Our model also showed that the residues L146 and L149 of the BC-box motif bind to EloC by hydrophobic interactions, and the residue P162 of the PPLP motif is important to EloB binding.The model presented here is the first complete three-dimensional structure of the Vif. The interaction of Vif with the A3G protein and the EloBC complex is in agreement with empirical data that is currently available in the literature and could therefore provide valuable structural information for advances in rational drug design.

    The invasion of alien species is a significant threat to global biodiversity and the top driver of climate change. The present study was conducted in the Great Rann of Kachchh, part of Kachchh Biosphere Reserve, Gujarat, India, which has been severely affected by invasion of Prosopis juliflora. The invasive weed infestation has been identified using multi-temporal remote sensing datasets of 1977, 1990, 1999, 2005 and 2011. Spatial analyses of the transition matrix, extent of invasive colonies, patchiness, coalescence and rate of spread were carried out. During the study period of three and half decades, almost 295 km2 of the natural land cover was converted into Prosopis cover. This study has shown an increment of 42.9% of area under Prosopis cover in the Great Rann of Kachchh, part of the Kachchh Biosphere Reserve during 1977 to 2011. Spatial analysis indicates high occupancy of Prosopis cover with most of the invasion (95.9%) occurring in the grasslands and only 4.1% in other land cover types. The process of Prosopis invasion shows high patch initiation, followed by coalescence, indicating aggressive colonization of species. The number of patches within an area of < 1 km2 increased from 1977 to 2011, indicating the formation of new Prosopis habitats by replacing the grasslands. The largest patch of Prosopis cover increased from 144 km2 in 1977 to 430 km2 in 2011. The estimated mean patch size was 7.8 km2 in 1977. The mean patch size was largest during 2011, i.e., 9 km2. The annual spread rate for Prosopis has been estimated as 2.1% during 2005-2011. The present work has investigated the long term changes in Prosopis cover in the Great Rann of Kachchh, part of Kachchh Biosphere Reserve. The spatial database generated will be useful in preparing strategies for the management of Prosopis juliflora.

  14. As construções de movimento causado e ditransitiva: elos de polissemia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maria Angélica FURTADO DA CUNHA

    Full Text Available RESUMO Este trabalho compara duas construções de estrutura argumental do Português Brasileiro - as construções de movimento causado e ditransitiva - para investigar seus elos de polissemia, com base em aspectos sintáticos, semânticos e pragmáticos que elas possam compartilhar. Segundo Goldberg (1995, as construções tipicamente se associam a uma família de sentidos distintos mas relacionados, formando uma rede inter-relacionada. Esse parece ser o caso das construções focalizadas aqui. A análise de instâncias reais dessas construções mostrou que elas compartilham o mesmo padrão sintático, embora tenham significados diferentes.

    Full Text Available   This essay discusses SciELO, a scientific journal database operating in 14 countries. It covers over 1000 journals providing open access to full text and table sets of scientometrics data. In Brazil it is responsible for a collection of nearly 300 journals, selected along 15 years as the best Brazilian periodicals in natural and social sciences. Nonetheless, they still are national journal in the sense that over 80% of the articles are published by Brazilian scientists. Important initiatives focused on professionalization and internationalization are considered to bring these journals to a higher level of quality and visibility. DOI: 10.18870/hlrc.v3i3.153

  16. Why rate when you could compare? Using the “EloChoice” package to assess pairwise comparisons of perceived physical strength

    We introduce “EloChoice”, a package for R which uses Elo rating to assess pairwise comparisons between stimuli in order to measure perceived stimulus characteristics. To demonstrate the package and compare results from forced choice pairwise comparisons to those from more standard single stimulus rating tasks using Likert (or Likert-type) items, we investigated perceptions of physical strength from images of male bodies. The stimulus set comprised images of 82 men standing on a raised platform with minimal clothing. Strength-related anthropometrics and grip strength measurements were available for each man in the set. UK laboratory participants (Study 1) and US online participants (Study 2) viewed all images in both a Likert rating task, to collect mean Likert scores, and a pairwise comparison task, to calculate Elo, mean Elo (mElo), and Bradley-Terry scores. Within both studies, Likert, Elo and Bradley-Terry scores were closely correlated to mElo scores (all rs > 0.95), and all measures were correlated with stimulus grip strength (all rs > 0.38) and body size (all rs > 0.59). However, mElo scores were less variable than Elo scores and were hundreds of times quicker to compute than Bradley-Terry scores. Responses in pairwise comparison trials were 2/3 quicker than in Likert tasks, indicating that participants found pairwise comparisons to be easier. In addition, mElo scores generated from a data set with half the participants randomly excluded produced very comparable results to those produced with Likert scores from the full participant set, indicating that researchers require fewer participants when using pairwise comparisons.

    Interest in the quality of life construct has increased in the same proportion as the output of instruments to measure it. In order to analyze the scientific literature on the subject to provide a reflection on this construct in Brazil, a systematic review of the SciELO database covering the period from January 2001 to December 2006 was conducted. It was divided into 3 phases: the first involving 180 publications, the second 124, and the third 10. Of the 180 publications, 77.4% consisted of production in the last three years, with growth of 32.4% from 2001 to 2006. Of these, 124 were selected for methodological analysis in accordance with the category of the study: 79 (63.9%) instrument application articles; 25 (20.1%) translation, validation, adaptation and construction of a QOL instrument; 10 (8%) qualitative studies on QOL; 5 (4%) bibliographical review, 5 (4%) on the quality of life concept. The next stage involved the use of questionnaires and/or interview scripts in order to obtain a broader consensus on perceived quality of life from the interviewees. It was seen that there was significant scientific output in the period under scrutiny, with diversification of approaches and methodologies, highlighting the complexity of the quality of life construct.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo tem como objeto a cadeia produtiva do trigo no Brasil e destaca a realidade econômica de seus principais elos, com ênfase nos elos da produção agrícola e industrial do cereal. Salienta-se que o artigo traz a atualidade do setor no Brasil, a partir da análise dos resultados de pesquisa de campo realizada com produtores rurais, cooperativas e moinhos de trigo. O estudo da cadeia tritícola brasileira, com seus problemas, oferece uma luz para melhor compreensão das condições que o país possui para não só responder às dúvidas expostas, mas, sobretudo, apontar o caminho seguido pela produção de trigo no Brasil nesse início de século XXI. A triticultura nacional está ameaçada e dificilmente alcançará a auto-suficiência, pois os produtores brasileiros não possuem vantagens comparativas e competitivas suficientes, particularmente em relação aos produtores argentinos. A comercialização do trigo também enfrenta dificuldades, tanto na questão de preços do produto, quanto na qualidade exigida pelos moinhos. A retirada da intervenção estatal na produção nacional de trigo, em 1990/91, que a deixou ao sabor do mercado, alterou completamente o quadro de competitividade dos produtores e da própria cadeia produtiva. Uma das principais conclusões é de que a cadeia tritícola brasileira não funciona a contento, a eficiência da produção nacional está em xeque e seu futuro, comprometido.The present article is about the wheat productive chain in Brazil and focuses on the economic reality of its main connecting links, with emphasis on the links between agricultural and industrial production. Let it be accentuated that the article brings present time accounts of the sector in Brazil, from the result analysis of field research among agricultural producers, producer co-operatives and wheat mills.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1980-0037.2009v11n2p217   A systematic review of original articles published between 1993 and 2007 and indexed in SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online was carried out to identify the anthropometric indicators used to assess abdominal obesity in different target subgroups, and to provide an overview of available evidence regarding the relationship between these anthropometric indicators and obesity-associated comorbidities. The articles were analyzed and the following data were collected:year of publication, sample size and age, anthropometric measure used to detect abdominal obesity, and main results of the study. The review comprised 47 articles which met all inclusion criteria, most of them published over the last 5 years. Waist-hip ratio and waist circumference were used as indicators of abdominal obesity in 34 and 11 of the articles reviewed, respectively. With respect to age range, the samples were heterogeneous in most of the studies (n=27 and ten included adolescents. Four studies were conducted on elderly subjects and three included children, but none exclusively involved adolescents as the target population. The sample size was larger than 500 in 26 studies. Despite disagreement in terms of the degree of correlation, the studies generally showed that the anthropometric indicators of abdominal obesity were correlated with hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemias, and coronary heart risk. The results of this review suggest that abdominal obesity is associated with metabolic diseases. However, there is a lack of studies involving the adolescent population, suggesting the need for further research in this area.

    Sphingolipids are essential components of eukaryotic membranes, where they serve to maintain membrane integrity. They are important components of membrane trafficking and function in signaling as messenger molecules. Sphingolipids are synthesized de novo from very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) and sphingoid long-chain bases, which are amide linked to form ceramide and further processed by addition of various headgroups. Little is known concerning the regulation of VLCFA levels and how cells coordinate their synthesis with the availability of long-chain bases for sphingolipid synthesis. Here we show that Elo2, a key enzyme of VLCFA synthesis, is controlled by signaling of the guanine nucleotide exchange factor Rom2, initiating at the plasma membrane. This pathway controls Elo2 phosphorylation state and VLCFA synthesis. Our data identify a regulatory mechanism for coordinating VLCFA synthesis with sphingolipid metabolism and link signal transduction pathways from the plasma membrane to the regulation of lipids for membrane homeostasis. © 2015 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.

The selected journals represent the domain metric studies in the SciELO database and are present in the other databases, which were taken from their citation indicators. The study identifies the total number of each journal and the total number of publications related to metric studies in the 2009-2013 period, and the total number of citations received by each journal and his quote to MS articles in the time window 2009-2016, showing the average quotation by journal, areas and countries in the thematic and in their general publication. Soon after, it compares the citation measures given by the SJR of Scopus and the JCR Web of Science, pointing journals, areas and countries with the greatest impact on the theme and overall. It concludes that the majority of the journals have a higher number of citations in Scopus over the WOS, suggesting greater visibility in the first database to the articles about with metric studies. A similar situation occurs when considering any scientific journal and their citations received in relation to their overall impact. In relative terms, it observes that, in both databases, the Applied Social Sciences journals presents the highest percentage of articles on EMI in detriment to the other disciplines journals. Finally, it considers that Scopus indexing policies are responsible for their wider coverage and greater visibility of their journals, which are available in different languages.

    Open access publishing is becoming increasingly popular within the biomedical sciences. SciELO, the Scientific Electronic Library Online, is a digital library covering a selected collection of Brazilian scientific journals many of which provide open access to full-text articles.This library includes a number of dental journals some of which may include reports of clinical trials in English, Portuguese and/or Spanish. Thus, SciELO could play an important role as a source of evidence for dental healthcare interventions especially if it yields a sizeable number of high quality reports. The aim of this study was to identify reports of clinical trials by handsearching of dental journals that are accessible through SciELO, and to assess the overall quality of these reports. Electronic versions of six Brazilian dental Journals indexed in SciELO were handsearched at www.scielo.br in September 2008. Reports of clinical trials were identified and classified as controlled clinical trials (CCTs - prospective, experimental studies comparing 2 or more healthcare interventions in human beings) or randomized controlled trials (RCTs - a random allocation method is clearly reported), according to Cochrane eligibility criteria. CRITERIA TO ASSESS METHODOLOGICAL QUALITY INCLUDED: method of randomization, concealment of treatment allocation, blinded outcome assessment, handling of withdrawals and losses and whether an intention-to-treat analysis had been carried out. The search retrieved 33 CCTs and 43 RCTs. A majority of the reports provided no description of either the method of randomization (75.3%) or concealment of the allocation sequence (84.2%). Participants and outcome assessors were reported as blinded in only 31.2% of the reports.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN En numerosas ocasiones se discute si una determinada liga es la mejor de Europa o si es otra, pero muchas veces ese concepto de “mejor” queda indefinido y se basa en elementos subjetivos o apreciaciones. El objetivo de este trabajo es comparar las ligas, española, inglesa e italiana, utilizando el rating ELO para poder determinar cual de las ligas es más homogénea en términos de equilibrio entre los equipos.El interés de una liga depende en gran parte de que exista incertidumbre en el resultado, es decir, lo que viene a denominarse como balance competitivo entre los equipos que la forman, ya que si no es así, la competición pierde interés en la medida en que el resultado es demasiado prfevisible, es decir, que los “buenos” equipos siempre vencen a los restantes, con lo que se perjudica al espectáculo y por tanto, las ganancias que reportan los ingresos, especialmente los televisivos.ABSTRACT It is often discussed whether a particular football league (soccer in America is the best league. However, the term 'best' is often indefinite and based on subjective elements. The aim of this study is to compare the Spanish, English and Italian leagues by using the ELO rating system to determine which league is more homogeneous in terms of balance between the teams. The level of interest in a league largely depends on the uncertainty of outcome or the competitive balance between the teams. If there is a competitive imbalance between the teams then the competition loses interest because the expected results coincide with the real results, namely the 'top' teams always win against the others. This can damage the spectacle, and therefore the earnings produced – especially in the case of television.

  19. A reprodução do atacado distribuidor como um elo entre os dois circuitos da economia urbana no Brasil

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available A fragmentação geográfica da produção somada à necessidade de uma rápida reposição de estoques com maior frequência e segundo prazos cada vez mais curtos, tanto na indústria quanto no varejo, torna a busca pela maior fluidez da circulação uma imposição à sobrevivência das empresas. Esse fato é acentuado no Brasil com a abertura da economia, com a estabilização da moeda e com a expansão social e territorial do consumo. Em resposta a esta situação, tem ocorrido a ascensão das atividades voltadas ao planejamento, ao controle e à gestão dos fluxos da logística de distribuição. No âmbito deste processo, os atacadistas distribuidores de produtos de mercearia básica continuam exercendo um papel significativo na intermediação entre a indústria e o pequeno varejo. As modernizações das empresas atacadistas incluem o ganho de eficácia nas operações logísticas por meio da adoção de novas tecnologias e métodos organizacionais e novas relações de cooperação, sobretudo com o pequeno varejo, por intermédio da prestação de diversos serviços e pela gestão de redes de negócios que reafirmam seu papel de elo entre os dois circuitos da economia urbana brasileira.

  20. A CULINÁRIA INDÍGENA COMO ELO DE PASSAGEM DA “CULTURA” PARA A “NATUREZA”: INVERTENDO LÉVI-STRAUSS

    Full Text Available According to Claude Lévi-Strauss, the cuisine constitutes a passing link fromstage of nature to stage of culture. Based on ethnographic research among the Mbyá-Guarani,this article analyzes this assertion under the light of the Amerindian cosmology. However, thedichotomy between nature and culture does not apply to indigenous groups, since for thesenature and culture constitute a hybrid. To this hybridism might also be added the domain ofsupernatural. In terms of analysis this hybrid configuration does not allow any kind oftransition from one domain to another. Yet the transition is possible among the three possibleconditions of life in cosmos – animality, humanity and divinity. Human beings may perform thetransition to animality as well as the transition to divinity. But no matter the course of thetransition, although in different conditions in cosmos, from humanity one will always achieveanimality. As conceptualized by Lévi-Strauss, from culture always occurs the trasition to nature.However, in one direction ex-humans will control nature beings, in another one, they will becontrolled by nature. This isn’t just about a peculiarity of indigenous groups, it may also befound in societies so-called “modern”, however under others shapes.Segundo Claude Lévi-Strauss, a culinária constitui um elo de passagem da etapada natureza para o estágio da cultura. A partir da pesquisa etnográfica realizada entre osMbyá-Guarani, o presente artigo analisa esta afirmação sob a luz da cosmologia ameríndia.No entanto, a dicotomia entre natureza e cultura não se aplica aos grupos indígenas, pois, paraestes, as categorias natureza e cultura constituem um híbrido. E a este hibridismo podemosacrescentar também o domínio da sobrenatureza. E, em termos de análise, essa configuraçãohibrida não possibilita haver qualquer tipo de passagem entre um domínio e outro. Mas apassagem é possível entre as três possíveis condições de vida no cosmos

    Full Text Available The economy of the Province of Neuquén is centered in hydrocarbon operation, that represents around 50% of the GDP and affects public budget through royalties income. The decline of oil and gas extraction, verified in Argentina, has caused serious difficulties to the Neuquino State to fulfill its commitments, making Public Debt an inherent variable. The local leadership expectations to reverse this situation are focused on unconventional resources from Vaca Muerta and Los Molles, in the Neuquina Basin. At the same time, the National Government, through YPF, rely on these geological formations development to overcome external restriction.The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of the increased activity in the oil and gas sector in Neuquen, deepening our research about the town of Añelo, which became the operating companies main settlement. Another aspect to be addressed will be the legal framework reform process carried out during 2014, in order to point out the effects of the new legislation in the territory, considering that it incorporates instruments to increase investments. Key words: Hydrocarbon, Añelo, Legal Framework.

  6. As políticas de direitos autorais e de reuso presentes nas revistas brasileiras de acesso aberto das áreas biológicas e de saúde disponibilizadas na plataforma SciELO-Brasil

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ariadne Chloe Mary Furnival

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1518-2924.2015v20n44p25 O termo Acesso aberto se refere à disponibilização online, gratuita e livre de restrições, da literatura científica. No Brasil, essa dinâmica se dá, majoritariamente, através das revistas em Acesso Aberto, a chamada “via dourada”. A publicação de tais revistas tem crescido continuamente desde a abertura da plataforma SciELO no Brasil, em 1997, e do sistema OJS pelo IBICT. Apesar da ampla divulgação mundial dos conceitos e definições sobre Acesso Aberto, e, sobretudo, em relação a questões de Direitos Autorais, autorização de reuso e arquivamento em repositórios, a hipótese aqui levantada é de que ainda existem situações conflitantes nas políticas de algumas revistas brasileiras de Acesso Aberto, conflitos relativos aos Direitos Autorais e aos direitos de reuso pelos leitores-usuários-autores. O artigo relata um estudo que teve como objetivo principal analisar e averiguar o conceito de Acesso Aberto, explícita e implicitamente usado nas revistas levantadas, sinalizando, de certa forma, o grau de “abertura” destas, tal como definido recentemente no folheto “HowOpenIsIt?” publicado por SPARC, PLoS e OASPA. Foram estudadas as políticas de Direitos Autorais de uma amostra composta por 117 periódicos correntes da área das Ciências Biológicas e Ciências de Saúde na plataforma SciELO-Brasil. Os resultados demonstram que existe uma variedade de apropriações e significações do termo “Acesso Aberto” que se manifestam na redação da política dos Direitos Autorais de tais revistas, dando espaço para confusões entre autores e leitores no que se refere aos direitos de reuso e disseminação posteriores à publicação, direitos estes intrínsecos às definições “clássicas” de Acesso Aberto

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ada Lima Ferreira de Sousa

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo trata do conceito de figuratividade no âmbito dos estudos cognitivos da linguagem. Apresenta a polarização, herdada dos gregos antigos, entre o que se convencionou como figurativo e literal, o que resultou no entendimento de que pensamento e linguagem são inerentemente literais. Nessa concepção, o figurativo seria um recurso não natural, propositadamente utilizado como estratégia estilística. Assim, o uso da figuratividade passou a ser associado a prejuízos à suposta transparência da linguagem e dos significados a ela inerentes. Embora essa concepção não tenha sido suplantada, as perspectivas cognitivas contemporâneas que tratam do fenômeno linguístico como sendo intrínseco à cognição oferecem-nos uma outra visão acerca da figuratividade. A Teoria Neural da Linguagem, em particular, tem reforçado, teórica e empiricamente, a compreensão acerca dos mecanismos cognitivos envolvidos na construção de sentidos. De igual relevância, esse arcabouço teórico tem apresentado evidências de que as experiências corpóreas estão na raiz da construção de parte das estruturas mentais evidenciadas no uso da linguagem, de modo que a natureza peculiar de nosso corpo contribui para as peculiaridades de nosso sistema conceptual. A integração entre corpo e mente, de modo que emoções e abstrações devem ser conceptualizadas a partir de elementos mais concretos, de base corpórea, oferece novos contornos à explicação para o fenômeno linguístico da figuratividade. Palavras-chave: Figuratividade. Cognição. Teoria Neural da Linguagem.

    Full Text Available A gestão da demanda é um tema emergente no campo de conhecimento da gestão da cadeia de suprimentos. O que se busca com a gestão da demanda é a rápida e adequada integração das necessidades originadas do mercado na direção dos fornecedores, de modo a balancear e alinhar estrategicamente a demanda com a capacidade operacional ao longo da cadeia de suprimentos. Esse alinhamento da demanda na cadeia de suprimentos enfrenta dificuldades provocando ineficiência no atendimento a clientes, redução do giro de estoque e alto índice de obsolescência agravada pela grande diversidade de produtos. O objetivo deste estudo foi desenvolver um modelo para a gestão da demanda na cadeia de suprimentos de produtos de mercearia básica considerando os elos fornecedor e atacadista distribuidor. Para tal, realizou-se uma pesquisa qualitativa por meio de um estudo de caso na empresa atacadista Martins e em nove fornecedores desta empresa. A pesquisa revelou que o processo de implantação da gestão da demanda pode ser dividido em três fases: 1 alinhamento conjunto das diretrizes estratégicas das empresas; 2 formulação do plano de negócios; e 3 execução e acompanhamento do plano de negócios. Além disso, este processo apresenta três elementos que o permeiam: envolvimento da alta gerência, interações inter e intraempresas e resultados da gestão da demanda. Estes resultados compreendem o aumento da rentabilidade por meio da melhoria da eficiência e eficácia, como também o compartilhamento de conhecimento e aprendizado pelas empresas.Demand management is an emerging topic in supply chain management. It is focused on a fast and adequate integration of supplier needs in order to balance and strategically align demand with operational capability in the supply chain.

    Diclofenac sodium is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug used for the relief of pain and inflammation. Many patients have difficulty swallowing tablets and consequently do not take medication as prescribed. To achieve optimum benefit of a drug, it is desirable to present it in a formulation which can rapidly disperse in water. This formulation is easier to swallow, therefore enhancing patient compliance. The aim of this study was to develop a stable diclofenac sodium dispersible table...

  18. Modernidade/Colonialidade sem “Imperialidade”? O Elo Perdido do Giro Decolonial

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luciana Maria de Aragão Ballestrin

    Full Text Available RESUMO O “giro decolonial” ao adaptar o argumento pós-colonial para a América Latina, compreende que a colonialidade é a face oculta e constitutiva da modernidade. Ao constatar criticamente que o problema do imperialismo é subdesenvolvido pelos seus principais teóricos, lanço as seguintes indagações: é possível pensar na relação entre colonialidade e modernidade, sem a dinâmica da “imperialidade”? Como explicar a reprodução das novas formas de colonialismo sem a consideração das novas formas de imperialismo? Neste artigo, assim, proponho o conceito de Imperialidade como uma lacuna que impede a explicação dos mecanismos de reprodução da colonialidade. Ao entendê-la como lógica do imperialismo, constitutiva e relacional da colonialidade, observo ainda que as estratégias de descolonização devem ser muito mais dirigidas à “Imperialidade” do que à modernidade propriamente dita. A informalidade, invisibilidade e nebulosidade dos mecanismos contemporâneos de Imperialidade reproduzem o imperialismo sem império através da governança sem governo no contexto global.

    The purpose of this work was to characterize the localized corrosion phenomenon in the weld region of offshore mooring chain links type ORQ. In this sense, a number of chain links were selected after finishing their projected life time without corrosion signs (chains without corrosion) as well as chain links which showed a reduced life time caused by localized corrosion (chains with corrosion). In the sequence, electrochemistry tests evaluated the corrosion susceptibility of the different regions of the weld joint. The results showed that the heat affected zone concerning the chains with corrosion was the anodic region, with high corrosion rate, while the same region on the not corroded chains was the cathodic one, with low corrosion rate.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: avaliar o comportamento dos níveis séricos de leptina durante a evolução da gestação de adolescentes primigestas normotensas e pré-eclâmpticas. Métodos: estudo prospectivo e longitudinal, realizado em 15 pacientes normotensas e 5 pré-eclâmpticas. Os níveis séricos de leptina (ng/ml foram determinados por radioimunoensaio e a pressão arterial foi aferida pelo DINAMAP 1846. Foram feitas avaliações em dois períodos gestacionais distintos: entre a 21ª e a 30ª semana e entre a 31ª e a 40ª semana. Utilizou-se a razão leptina/índice de massa corporal (IMC para corrigir a variação do IMC ao longo da gravidez. Considerou-se como pré-eclâmpticas as gestantes com pressão arterial > ou = 140/90 mmHg, proteinúria >300 mg/24 h e espasmo arteriolar pelo exame de fundo de olho. Resultados: quando se comparou o período entre a 21ª e a 30ª semana com o período entre a 31ª e a 40ª semana, houve tendência de aumento da leptina sérica no último período nos dois grupos estudados, mais acentuadamente nas pré-eclâmpticas que nas grávidas normotensas: de 11,9±1,59 para 17,6±4,55 ng/ml e de 11,9±1,20 para 13,9±2,33 ng/mL, respectivamente. O IMC de gestantes normotensas não se alterou nos dois períodos analisados: 24,9±1,5 kg/m² vs 25,2±1,0 kg/m². Entretanto, o IMC aumentou significativamente nas pré-eclâmpticas no final da gravidez: 21,5±0,8 vs 27,4±1,7 kg/m²,pPurpose: to study in primigravid adolescents the behavior of serum leptin levels during the evolution of normal pregnancy, comparing the results with those obtained from preeclamptics. Methods: prospective, longitudinal study conducted in 15 normotensive pregnant adolescents and 5 preeclamptic adolescents. Serum leptin levels (ng/mL were determined by radioimmunoassay. Blood pressure was measured by the oscilometric method by using DINAMAP 1846. Patients were evaluated in two different gestational periods: between the 21st and 30th week and between the 31st and 40th week. The ratio leptin/body mass index (BMI was used to correct changes observed in BMI throughout gestation. Preeclamptic pregnant patients were diagnosed when the blood pressure was > or = 140/90 mmHg, proteinuria >300 mg/24 h and when arteriolar spasm was present in the optic fundi. Results: there was a trend towards an elevation of serum leptin at the end of pregnancy in both groups although more pronounced in preeclamptic patients. In pregnant normotensive patients serum leptin increased from 11.9±1.20 (21stto 30th week to 13.9±2.23 ng/mL (31st to 40th week, and in preeclamptic from 11.9±1.20 to 17.6±4.565 ng/mL. In preeclamptic patients the BMI increased significantly in the period from the 21st to 30th week when compared to the period between the 31st and 40thweek: 21.5±0.8 vs 27.4±1.7 kg/m², p<0.05.In normotensive these values were maintained stable: 24.9±1.5 vs 25.1±1.00 kg/m². At the end of gestation the ratio leptin/BMI was significantly higher in preeclamptics: 0.56±0.06 (21stto 30thweek vs 0.70±0.15, p<0.05. The values of the ratio leptin/BMI in normotensive pregnants varied from 0.44±0.02 between the 21st and 30th week to 0.41±0.04 between the 31st to 40thweek. In normal pregnants there was a direct and significant correlation between the levels of leptin and BMI in both periods of pregnancy: r = 0.7, p<0.004 (31st to 40th vs r = 0.94, p<0.0001 (31st to 40th week. These correlations were lost in preeclamptic patients in both gestational periods. Conclusion: the higher concentrations of leptin and leptin/BMI ratio observed when preeclamptics were compared with normotensive patients, in both gestational periods, suggest a leptin resistance pattern in preeclampsia.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Kada se govori o oružju, obično se pod njime podrazumijeva primjena smrtonosne tehnologije. S druge strane, u i izvan oružanih sukoba, često se koristi i tzv. nesmrtonosno oružje, kojemu svrha nije ubijanje, već oneposobljavanje pojedinaca ili vojnih ciljeva. Budući da nesmrtonosno oružje ne mora nužno uzrokovati smrt, ali uzrokuje ozbiljna ranjavanja i velike patnje, korištenje takvih sredstava otvara brojna humanitarna pitanja i pitanja zaštite ljudskih prava. Zabrana uzrokovanja suvišnih ozljeda i nepotrebne patnje, kao i zabrana neselektivnih napada su jedne od najznačajnijih zabrana u međunarodnom ratnom pravu, a koje se mogu primijeniti i na korištenje nesmrtonosnog oružja u oružanom sukobu. Međutim, primjena načela razmjernosti može dovesti do opravdavanja korištenja nesmrtonosnog oružja. To se opravdava očekivanim prednostima njegove primjene u oružanom sukobu, koje pretežu u odnosu na uzrokovane ljudske patnje. Stoga se postavlja pitanje postoji li „crvena linija“ njegove primjene. Učestalo pozivanje na primjenu načela razmjernosti može poništiti cilj i svrhu Ženevskih konvencija te dovesti do opravdavanja nezakonitog korištenja nesmrtonosnog oružja. Osim u oružanim sukobima, nesmrtonosno se oružje može koristiti i u policijskim postupanjima. U tim slučajevima osobito značenje ima zaštita ljudskih prava. Pri tomu se u obzir ne smije uzeti samo zabrana mučenja i uzrokovanja nečovječnih ili ponižavajućih patnji te pravo na život, već i pravo na zdravlje. Pravo na zdravlje ograničava i postavlja granice uporabe nesmrtonosnog oružja izvan okvira oružanog sukoba.

    The energy and fuel obtaining process must be understand as a political concept and a socially built one. Such a process should be understood taking in account social impacts, environmental issues, land struggles. There are plenty of empirical examples able to identify flows, directions and speedy up enterprises when extracting matter and energy conversion within areas of high social and environmental sensibility. The infra-structure expansion over traditional people areas, high biodiversity mapped regions and environmental sensibility areas are expression of the capital intensive accumulation process and must be legitimated in one way or another. Simultaneously two way processes occur: in one hand the use of land, riverside areas and natural landscapes to generate electrical energy and fuel obtaining an in the other hand the abandon of original usage for the land. Specifically, in the Amazon rain forest area it is evident that the mentioned flows are supported by the natural wealthy. So, the analyses under a scientific approach, elaborating theories, demonstrations and occurrences documentation are necessary. Two preliminary expectations are posted by the article: 1) Discuss the implications due to the creation of energetic reserve areas over traditional people regions; 2) Produce a preliminary picture of demands over natural resources and respective social conflicts based on significant selected cases.

    The penitentiary world has been the object of a variety of studies in the most diverse areas of knowledge and still maintains itself poorly understood. This is due particularly to the barriers that are imposed to the researchers in the gaining of direct contact with prisoners and primary data sources. In this sense this work, developed during the Master dissertation studies in Environment Sciences in the Federal University of Tocantins (UFT, presents a plus in the analysis by including 960 notes written by men held in prison, in the provisory detain house of Palmas. The purpose of this article is to present an interpretation of the quotidian life in prison by means of interpretation of note readings written by the inmates. In a unique manner, we tried to understand the mechanisms used by these men to maintain a link between life in prison and the one external to it. Seen in a self perspective of writing (GOMES, 2004, the notes reveal much of the quotidian of prisoners in the house of prison: their problems, conduct, privations and anguishes. Keywords: Prisoners. Penitentiary. Spaces. Self writing.

    Full Text Available Music, in addition to propagating culture, stands out as a strong promoter of identity and reveals the soul of its locations. In geography, the location is the appropriate tool for studying those prints or marks that express themselves in space. These are also perceived via songs, given that the location allows us to understand what happens in the space in which we live beyond natural or human conditions. The method used was hermeneutics phenomenology, in that a great part of the theoretical framework is associated with authors and topics that have some kind of affinity with said method. Therefore, this work has as its objective to carry out a reading of musical letters that interpret the Goiás state as a location. It is about a good option for whoever desires to get to know Goiás from another perspective or in a different way from that which other territories and sites are read.

    This article presents a study that evaluates the effectiveness of a DC link in order to damp power oscillations, of inter area exchange, under small disturbance conditions, operating with Automatic Control Generation. The DC link was represented by a power injection model included the Sensitivity Power Model. Through this representation, the DC link was inserted in the block diagram, modeled as an injection power in the bars terminals in the net active and reactive, closing a new power balance at every instant. It was also designed a controller for damping power oscillations (POD-Power Oscillation Damping Controller) for modulation the power of the DC link and, therefore, insertion of additional damping in a frequency oscillations of exchange lines. The results confirm that the DC link has a great potential for maintaining the damping of oscillations frequency so inter area when equipped with POD controllers.

O objetivo específico é discutir as implicações desse controle no debate das reformas do FMI. Demostramos como esse controle opera no Comitê Sênior de Revisão de contratação dos economistas. Trata-se de uma pesquisa qualitativa com base em entrevistas e documentos oficiais. Sustenta-se haver um favorecimento de economistas alinhados com a a visão e interesses dos países do G-7, em especial dos Estados Unidos, dado o número reduzido de escolas de economia, majoritariamente estadunideneses, das quais os quadros são oriundos. Os resultados demonstram que um debate restrito às reformas das cotas de representação no Conselho Executivo, demanda constante do Brasil, não é suficiente para alcançar-se uma organização mais representativa e legítima perante a comunidade internacional. Argumenta-se que é preciso reformar as regras do processo de recrutamento dos economistas que favorece economistas formados em algumas poucas escolas de economia nos Estados Unidos e Europa.

    Full Text Available Investigación exploratoria cualitativa que objetivó conocer la comprensión del enfermero sobre la vulnerabilidad en el desarrollo del niño. Los sujetos fueron 39 enfermeros que trabajan en 39 Unidades de Salud en Curitiba, Paraná, Brasil. Los datos fueron obtenidos por medio de entrevistas semi-estructuradas, y analizados por la hermenéutica dialéctica. Los resultados apuntaron, según los enfermeros, que la vulnerabilidad del niño es influida por los eslabones familiares débiles, por la dependencia química y violencia doméstica. Los sujetos de la investigación relatan la expresión de procesos individuales como reflejos de la sociedad posmoderna y comprenden esta relación sociedad-familia como situación adversa al desarrollo infantil. La utilización del concepto de vulnerabilidad en el cotidiano profesional del enfermero y del equipo de Salud, permite un análisis crítico de sus prácticas. La aplicación de este concepto en el cuidado al niño propicia la reorientación del modelo asistencial, y así, la superación del concepto biologicista y fragmentado de desarrollo infantil.

    Taking into account the global importance of the petroleum industry, the present work aims to present a study of this industry through the lens of its production chain, using bibliometric indicators of technological innovation in order to determine critical competitiveness factors. The concept of the production chain includes the set of activities undertaken progressively from raw material to the final product, including distribution and sales, with each segment being a link in the chain. The petroleum industry is composed of a production chain which may be divided into the following segments: exploration and production, transportation of crude oil and natural gas, refining, transportation of derivatives and distribution. The development of the present work involved the analysis of information about the petroleum production chain in Brazil and elsewhere, gathered through research in specialized database. The analysis of bibliometric indicators of technological innovation in each link of the production chain maps the technological trends existing in this chain. (author)

    Among the existing approaches approaches to predict J{sub c,} in the transition region of the ferritic steels, there are statistical and deterministic methods. Among the formers we have the methodology based on the two-parameter J-Q theory and the weakest-link concept with its characteristic distance, r{sub wl.} For this work, an experimental program was developed using 65 fracture mechanics specimens made from an A508 steel, in three geometries with thickness B < 1T = 25.4 mm, and tested at four transition temperatures. After the tests to measure J{sub c,} all specimen fracture surfaces were observed by scanning electron microscopy to identify the cleavage trigger points (weak-links) and to measure their characteristic distances r{sub wl} to the crap tip. The J{sub c} and r{sub wl} values were presented and compared with the theoretical ones. (author)

    Full Text Available La música, además de propagar la cultura, se destaca por ser una fuerte promotora de la identidad y revelar el alma de los lugares. En Geografía, el lugar es la herramienta adecuada para el estudio de aquellas marcas que se expresan en el espacio, y que también son percibidas por medio de las canciones, dado que el lugar nos permite entender lo que sucede en el espacio en el que vivimos más allá de sus condiciones naturales o humanas. El método utilizado fue la fenomenología hermenéutica, así que gran parte del marco teórico se asocia con autores y temas que tienen alguna afinidad con dicho método. Así, este trabajo tiene como objetivo realizar una lectura de letras musicales que interpretan el estado de Goiás como un lugar. Se trata de una buena opción para quienes desean conocer Goiás desde otra perspectiva, así como de una forma distinta de leer otros territorios y lugares.

    Full Text Available The goal of this paper is to discuss the relevance of studies of aphasicsyndromes to linguistic theory. This will be done by analyzingthe main features involving the definition and the work withagrammatism. Two main ideas will be defended: that agrammatismis an aphasic syndrome in which both linguistic production andcomprehension are affected and that there are regular observablepatterns in the disruption of these two modalities. It will be arguedthat these ideas can serve as the basis for the elaboration of ahypothesis that accounts in a unified manner for the deficitsobserved in agrammatism. This hypothesis, named “Preservationof Local Links”, claims that only links that are local in grammar arepreserved in agrammatism, while any other kind of non-local linkis to be considered disrupted. In this way, the presentation ofsuch hypothesis is a contribution to the dialogue that studies ofaphasic syndromes can entertain with linguistic theories.

  11. Segurança internacional e normatividade: é o liberalismo o elo perdido dos critical securities studies? International security and normativity: is liberalism the critial securities studies' lost link?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rafael Duarte Villa

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available O surgimento, e afirmação, de uma corrente de estudos críticos em segurança internacional plantou firmemente a idéia de que os problemas de segurança internacional não estão meramente relacionados com aspectos objetivos que ameaçam os Estados, mas esses problemas estão relacionados estreitamente com as relações entre indivíduo e emancipação humana. Assim, a condição de segurança em sentido forte tem, como precondição, a emancipação humana. Porém, em que condições esse overlap entre segurança internacional e emancipação acontece? A tese deste artigo é problematizar essas condições, que escapam ao diálogo endógeno dos critical securities studies (CSS. E que uma pista para operacionalização pode ser procurada nos diálogos entre a teoria crítica cosmopolita e a teoria liberal cosmopolita. Essa interseção, ou continuum, aponta a tese do artigo, é possível se os CSS atentam para dimensões do liberalismo político que têm sido negligenciadas, especialmente a democracia pensada em bases transnacionais e as possibilidades da sociedade civil transnacionalizada.The appearance and consolidation of a critical studies approach on international security fortified the claim that international security problems are not merely related to objective threats to states, but are in deep connection with the relationship between the individual and human emancipation. In those terms, a solid security condition is primarily preconditioned by human emancipation. However, in what conditions do international security and emancipation overlap? The present article intends to explore the question, a topic that is not tackled by the endogenous debate of critical security studies (CSS. An interesting path to be followed seems to be the dialogue between cosmopolitan critical theory and cosmopolitan liberal theory. This article argues that an intersection, or continuum, of these two theories would be possible if CSS focused on dimensions of political liberalism that have been neglected, especially to think about a transnational-based democracy and the possibilities of a transnationalized civil society.

  15. Philosophy of teaching: When win-argument pedagogy is a loss for the composition classroom

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wendy LEE GROSSKOPF

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Despite the effort educators put into developing in students the critical writing and thinking skills needed to compose effective arguments, undergraduate college students are often accused of churning out essays lacking in creative and critical thought, arguments too obviously formulated and with sides too sharply drawn. Theories abound as to why these deficiencies are ram‑ pant. Some blame students’ immature cognitive and emotional development for these lacks. Others put the blame of lackadaisical output on the assigning of shopworn writing subjects, assigned topics such as on American laws and attitudes about capital punishment and abortion. Although these factors might contribute to faulty written output in some cases, the prevailing hindrance is our very pedagogy, a system in which students are rewarded for composing the very type of argument we wish to avoid — the eristic, in which the goal is not truth seeking, but successfully disputing another’s argument. Certainly the eristic argument is the intended solution in cases when a clear‑cut outcome is needed, such as in legal battles and political campaigns when there can only be one winner. However, teaching mainly or exclusively the eristic, as is done in most composition classrooms today, halts the advancement of these higher‑order inquiry skills we try developing in our students.

    Full Text Available Virtually all chemical substances may cause adverse health effects, depending on the dose and conditions under which individuals are exposed to them. Toxicology - the study of harmful effects of chemicals on living organisms - provides the scientific data base on which risk assessment of adverse health effects stands. Risk assessment (RA is the process of estimating the probability that a chemical compound will produce adverse effects on a given population, under particular conditions of exposure. Risk assessment process consists of four stages: Hazard Identification (HI, Exposure Assessment (EA, Dose-Response Assessment (DRA, and Risk Characterization (RC. The risk assessment process as a whole makes it possible to carry out cost(risk/benefit analysis, and thus risk management, on a rational basis. A capacity to undertake risk assessment is thus sine qua non for making decisions that are concerned with achieving a balance between economic development and adequate protection of public health and the environment.Virtualmente todas as substâncias químicas podem causar efeitos adversos, dependendo da dose e das condições em que os indivíduos são a elas expostos. A toxicologia, isto é, o estudo dos efeitos danosos de substâncias químicas em organismos vivos, fornece a base de dados científicos na qual se apoia a avaliação de risco de efeitos adversos para a saúde. Avaliação de Risco (AR é o processo de se estimar a probabilidade que um composto químico tem de vir a produzir efeitos adversos numa dada população, em determinadas condições de exposição. A avaliação de risco consiste de quatro estágios: identificação da periculosidade (IP; avaliação da exposição (AE; avaliação da relação dose-efeito (ADE; e caracterização do risco (CR. O processo de avaliação de risco como um todo possibilita a realização da análise custo (risco/benefício e, portanto, do gerenciamento do risco, em bases racionais. A capacidade de se realizar a avaliação de risco é, assim, condição sine qua non para a tomada de decisões que estejam voltadas para se alcançar um equilíbrio entre desenvolvimento econômico e uma adequada proteção da saúde pública e do meio ambiente.

    Analyses of large test batteries administered to individuals ranging from young to old have consistently yielded a set of latent variables representing reference abilities (RAs) that capture the majority of the variance in age-related cognitive change: Episodic Memory, Fluid Reasoning, Perceptual Processing Speed, and Vocabulary. In a previous paper (Stern et al., 2014), we introduced the Reference Ability Neural Network Study, which administers 12 cognitive neuroimaging tasks (3 for each RA) to healthy adults age 20-80 in order to derive unique neural networks underlying these 4 RAs and investigate how these networks may be affected by aging. We used a multivariate approach, linear indicator regression, to derive a unique covariance pattern or Reference Ability Neural Network (RANN) for each of the 4 RAs. The RANNs were derived from the neural task data of 64 younger adults of age 30 and below. We then prospectively applied the RANNs to fMRI data from the remaining sample of 227 adults of age 31 and above in order to classify each subject-task map into one of the 4 possible reference domains. Overall classification accuracy across subjects in the sample age 31 and above was 0.80±0.18. Classification accuracy by RA domain was also good, but variable; memory: 0.72±0.32; reasoning: 0.75±0.35; speed: 0.79±0.31; vocabulary: 0.94±0.16. Classification accuracy was not associated with cross-sectional age, suggesting that these networks, and their specificity to the respective reference domain, might remain intact throughout the age range. Higher mean brain volume was correlated with increased overall classification accuracy; better overall performance on the tasks in the scanner was also associated with classification accuracy. For the RANN network scores, we observed for each RANN that a higher score was associated with a higher corresponding classification accuracy for that reference ability. Despite the absence of behavioral performance information in the

    The performance of thin-film GaN Schottky diodes fabricated using a large-area epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process is reported in this work. Comparison of the device characteristics before and after lift-off processing reveals that the Schottky barrier height remains unchanged by the liftoff processing and is consistent with expectations based on metal-semiconductor work function differences, with a barrier height of approximately 1 eV obtained for Ni/Au contacts on n- GaN. However, the leakage current in both reverse and low-forward-bias regimes is found to improve significantly after ELO processing. Likewise, the ideality factor of the Schottky diodes also improves after ELO processing, decreasing from n = 1.12-1.18 before ELO to n = 1.04-1.10 after ELO. A possible explanation for the performance improvement obtained for Schottky diodes after substrate removal by ELO processing is the elimination of leakage paths consisting of vertical leakage along threading dislocations coupled with lateral conduction through the underlying n+ buffer layer that is removed in the ELO process. Epitaxial liftoff with GaN may enable significant improvement in device performance and economics for GaN-based electronics and optoelectronics.

  17. Stress intensity factor at the tip of cladding incipient crack in RIA-simulating experiments for high-burnup PWR fuels

    2009-01-01

    RIA-simulating experiments for high-burnup PWR fuels have been performed in the NSRR, and the stress intensity factor K 1 at the tip of cladding incipient crack has been evaluated in order to investigate its validity as a PCMI failure threshold under RIA conditions. An incipient crack depth was determined by observation of metallographs. The maximum hydride-rim thickness in the cladding of the test fuel rod was regarded as the incipient crack depth in each test case. Hoop stress in the cladding periphery during the pulse power transient was calculated by the RANNS code. K 1 was calculated based on crack depth and hoop stress. According to the RANNS calculation, PCMI failure cases can be divided into two groups: failure in the elastic phase and failure in the plastic phase. In the former case, elastic deformation was predominant around the incipient crack at failure time. K 1 is available only in this case. In the latter, plastic deformation was predominant around the incipient crack at failure time. Failure in the elastic phase never occurred when K 1 was less than 17 MPa m 1/2 . For failure in the plastic phase, the plastic hoop strain of the cladding periphery at failure time clearly showed a tendency to decrease with incipient crack depth. The combination of K 1 , for failure in the elastic phase, and plastic hoop strain at failure, for failure in the plastic phase, can be an effective index of PCMI failure under RIA conditions.

  18. A ternary logic model for recurrent neuromime networks with delay.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hangartner, R D; Cull, P

    1995-07-01

    In contrast to popular recurrent artificial neural network (RANN) models, biological neural networks have unsymmetric structures and incorporate significant delays as a result of axonal propagation. Consequently, biologically inspired neural network models are more accurately described by nonlinear differential-delay equations rather than nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs), and the standard techniques for studying the dynamics of RANNs are wholly inadequate for these models. This paper develops a ternary-logic based method for analyzing these networks. Key to the technique is the realization that a nonzero delay produces a bounded stability region. This result significantly simplifies the construction of sufficient conditions for characterizing the network equilibria. If the network gain is large enough, each equilibrium can be classified as either asymptotically stable or unstable. To illustrate the analysis technique, the swim central pattern generator (CPG) of the sea slug Tritonia diomedea is examined. For wide range of reasonable parameter values, the ternary analysis shows that none of the network equilibria are stable, and thus the network must oscillate. The results show that complex synaptic dynamics are not necessary for pattern generation.

  19. Reservoir Engineering Management Program

    Howard, J.H.; Schwarz, W.J.

    1977-12-14

    The Reservoir Engineering Management Program being conducted at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory includes two major tasks: 1) the continuation of support to geothermal reservoir engineering related work, started under the NSF-RANN program and transferred to ERDA at the time of its formation; 2) the development and subsequent implementation of a broad plan for support of research in topics related to the exploitation of geothermal reservoirs. This plan is now known as the GREMP plan. Both the NSF-RANN legacies and GREMP are in direct support of the DOE/DGE mission in general and the goals of the Resource and Technology/Resource Exploitation and Assessment Branch in particular. These goals are to determine the magnitude and distribution of geothermal resources and reduce risk in their exploitation through improved understanding of generically different reservoir types. These goals are to be accomplished by: 1) the creation of a large data base about geothermal reservoirs, 2) improved tools and methods for gathering data on geothermal reservoirs, and 3) modeling of reservoirs and utilization options. The NSF legacies are more research and training oriented, and the GREMP is geared primarily to the practical development of the geothermal reservoirs. 2 tabs., 3 figs.

    Thraustochytrids, unicellular eukaryotic marine protists, accumulate polyunsaturated fatty acids. Here, we report the molecular cloning and functional characterization of two fatty acid elongase genes (designated tselo1 and tselo2), which could be involved in the desaturase/elongase (standard) pathway in Thraustochytrium sp. ATCC 26185. TsELO1, the product of tselo1 and classified into a Δ6 elongase group by phylogenetic analysis, showed strong C18-Δ6 elongase activity and relatively weak C18-Δ9 and C20-Δ5 activities when expressed in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. TsELO2, classified into a Δ9 elongase subgroup, showed only C16-Δ9 activity. When expressed in Aurantiochytrium limacinum mh0186 using a thraustochytrid-derived promoter and a terminator, TsELO1 exhibited almost the same specificity as expressed in the yeast but TsELO2 showed weak C18-Δ9 activity, in addition to its main C16-Δ9 activity. These results suggest that TsELO1 functions not only as a C18-Δ6 and a C20-Δ5 elongase in the main route but also as a C18-Δ9 elongase in the alternative route of standard pathway, while TsELO2 functions mainly as a C16-Δ9 elongase generating vaccenic acid (C18:1n-7) in thraustochytrids. This is the first report describing a fatty acid elongase harboring C16-Δ9 activity in thraustochytrids.

    To translate and validate the Sinhala version of the Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression scale (CES-D) for diagnosing depression in out-patients. A combined qualitative and quantitative approach was used for the translation of the CES-D. Sample size was calculated to detect a targeted sensitivity and specificity of 85%. The sample consisted of 75 participants diagnosed with major depressive disorder according to DSM IV criteria and 75 gender matched controls. Criterion validity was assessed using receiver operating charact-eristic (ROC) analysis. The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID-II) conducted by a psychiatrist was used as the gold standard. Mean age of the sample was 33 years. There were 91 females (60.7%). There was significant difference in the mean CES-D scores between cases (13.94) and controls (6.58) [t=14.50, df=148, paffect" and "somatic complaints" in the original model proposed by Radloff. Factor 2 corresponds to the interpersonal concerns. Factors 3 and 4 loaded the reversed coded items. The Sinhala version of the CES-D is a valid and reliable instrument for diagnosing major depressive disorder.

  15. Galen, satire and the compulsion to instruct.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rosen, Ralph M

    2010-01-01

    This chapter explores Galen's attitude toward instruction and teaching, and in particular the ways in which he conceptualized and articulated the didactic function of his writings. Galen's own rhetoric about why he wrote was often strident - his disparagement of contemporaries is famous, and his fondness for polemic is often regarded as a function of an eristic and arrogant personality. I suggest, however, that Galen's self-avowed role as a kind of public censor may derive as much from an amalgamation of rhetorical postures found in various literary and philosophical genres as it does from an inherently intemperate character. By examining various passages in Galen's protreptic and psychological works, I argue that his frequent stances of vituperative indignation and self-righteousness often resemble those found in satirical writings, from Cynic diatribe through Greek and Roman satirical poetry. Galen no doubt felt himself to be working in a serious tradition of Platonic and Stoic moralizing, but his particular form of didacticism was informed by various strategies assimilated from Greco-Roman serio-comic traditions.

    Full Text Available Actor-network theory suggests that those responsible for the operations of a complex system have reason to defend the idea of the system’s stability in the face of challengers who suggest the system may have problems. One form this defence can take is the formation of a complex social network that makes it difficult for challengers’ claims to be reasonably considered. This paper illustrates the formation or activation of such a network of Icelandic bankers, analysts, politicians, academics, business executives and newspapers, as well as their rational and emotional public arguments, in defence of the idea of the stability of the Icelandic banking system when challenged by the Danske Bank report of 2006. The analysis shows why it was difficult for the Danish challenge to receive a credible hearing among the Icelandic citizenry, which meant that citizens had a difficult time getting a clear picture of what was happening in their community. This research also shows a wider application for actor-network theory than previously discussed in the literature and draws implications of network formation or activation for policy makers.Félagsnetakenningin gerir ráð fyrir að þeir, sem eru ábyrgir fyrir viðhaldi flókinna kerfa, hafi ástæðu til þess að verjast ef fram kemur gagnrýni á stöðugleika kerfanna.

    The purpose was to Identify the knowledge production about the stroke in elderly under home care. Bibliographic research whose data were collected though the abstracts from 1997 to 2007, contained in LILACS and SciELO databases. The following key words were used: home assistance, aged people and cerebrovascular accident. Fifty-two references were found in the LILACS database, nine in the SciELO Brazil, and three in the SciELO Cuba. Most of the researches were carried out in 2000. Regarding the method, qualitative method predominance were observed, and central theme is related to the care giver, as well as to the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of the disease. It was observed that this knowledge is still established in Brazil, and the themes related to the person submitted to home care and violence to the aged are still little explored.

    Nannochloropsis species are oleaginous eukaryotes containing a plastid limited by four membranes, deriving from a secondary endosymbiosis. In Nannochloropsis, thylakoid lipids, including monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG), are enriched in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The need for EPA in MGDG is not understood. Fatty acids are de novo synthesized in the stroma, then converted into very-long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (FAs) at the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The production of MGDG relies therefore on an EPA supply from the ER to the plastid, following an unknown process. We identified seven elongases and five desaturases possibly involved in EPA production in Nannochloropsis gaditana. Among the six heterokont-specific saturated FA elongases possibly acting upstream in this pathway, we characterized the highly expressed isoform Δ0-ELO1. Heterologous expression in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) showed that NgΔ0-ELO1 could elongate palmitic acid. Nannochloropsis Δ0-elo1 mutants exhibited a reduced EPA level and a specific decrease in MGDG. In NgΔ0-elo1 lines, the impairment of photosynthesis is consistent with a role of EPA-rich MGDG in nonphotochemical quenching control, possibly providing an appropriate MGDG platform for the xanthophyll cycle. Concomitantly with MGDG decrease, the level of triacylglycerol (TAG) containing medium chain FAs increased. In Nannochloropsis, part of EPA used for MGDG production is therefore biosynthesized by a channeled process initiated at the elongation step of palmitic acid by Δ0-ELO1, thus acting as a committing enzyme for galactolipid production. Based on the MGDG/TAG balance controlled by Δ0-ELO1, this study also provides novel prospects for the engineering of oleaginous microalgae for biotechnological applications. PMID:27895203

    Full Text Available The effect of chess skill, age, and conditions for memorization on the efficiency of the recall of sequences of opening chess moves was studied. Thirty-nine chess players of different skill levels (from category 2 to grandmaster and ages (from 17 to 81 years old were divided into four groups (ELO > 2000 before and after the age of 40; ELO 2000. The current memory of the chess experts was to a greater extent mediated by opening schemes and knowledge than was that of the intermediate players. A hypothesis about the activity specificity of the coding in episodic memory was confirmed and concretized.

    We have succeeded in achieving continuous-wave operation of gallium nitride (GaN) based vertical-cavity surfaceemitting lasers (VCSELs), which was fabricated by epitaxial lateral overgrowth (ELO) using dielectric distributed Bragg reflectors(DBRs) as masks for selective growth. The device exhibited CW operation at a wavelength of 453.9nm. The maximum output power was 1.1 mW, which is the highest value reported in previously published articles. The ELO process used for this study represents a breakthrough for challenges which were indicated by other former reports for GaN-based VCSELs and is suitable for mass production.

    structure of Icelandic companies 2008-2013.Viðfangsefni greinarinnar er að fjalla um þróun á skipulagi, ferlum og umfangi í starfsemi 200 stærstu íslensku fyrirtækjanna á árunum 2004 til 2007. Gerð var rannsókn að erlendri fyrirmynd í rannsóknarverkefninu Innform á Íslandi. Markmiðið var að kanna hvort ný skipulagsform væru að ryðja sér til rúms eða hvort ný form væru að þróast samhliða eldri formum. Spurningalisti var sendur í pósti til 192 fyrirtækja og svör bárust frá 62 fyrirtækjum (32.3% svörun. Helstu niðurstöður eru þær að stærstu fyrirtækin leggja einna mest áherslu á afurðatengt stjórnskipulag og leggja jafnframt aukna áherslu á viðskiptavininn í skipulagi sínu. Stór hluti fyrirtækjanna (um 70% styðst hins vegar líka eða eingöngu við starfaskipulag. Þessar niðurstöður benda til þess að skipulag stórra íslenskra fyrirtækja sé um margt sambærilegt við þær erlendu rannsóknir sem miðað var við. Íslensku niðurstöðurnar benda líka til þess að skipulag íslensku fyrirtækjanna sé að þróast á þessu tímabili. Verkefnaskipulag er að ryðja sér til rúms og vísbendingar eru um að skipulag sem grundvallast á eignarhaldsfélögum hafi aukist talsvert á tímanum sem rannsóknin nær til. Áherslan á mannauðsstjórnun mælist með mestu áherslubreytinguna yfir tímabilið af þeim þáttum sem mældir voru. Breytingar á umfangi, úthýsingu og samstarfi milli fyrirtækja mælast frekar litlar yfir tímabilið og breytingarnar ganga skemur hér á landi en virðist hafa verið tilfellið í Evrópu áratugi fyrr. Rannsóknir sem byggja á sama mælitæki og jafnframt á raundæmum eru fyrirhugaðar til að kanna nánar þróun á skipulagi íslenskra fyrirtækja yfir tímabilið 2008-2013.

  10. Banking collapse, image and trust Bankahrun, ímynd og traust

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Þórhallur Guðlaugsson

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Abstract in English is unavailable.Í greininni er fjallað um afmarkaðan þátt í kjölfar hruns íslensku bankanna 2008, þ.e. ímynd þeirra. Rannsóknarspurningin er: "Hvaða áhrif hefur bankahrun á ímynd banka og sparisjóða?" Fjallað er almennt um hvernig ímynd verður til og hvernig markaðsstarf hefur þróast í þá átt að beina tilboði skipulagsheildar að vel skilgreindum markhópi og leggja áherslu á að mynda tengsl við hann. Í rannsókninni er bæði lagt mat á ímynd einstakra banka í samanburði við aðra, sk. hlutfallslegur samanburður, og þróun meðaltals ímyndarþátta fyrir einstaka banka og greinina í heild. Rannsóknin byggir á aðferðafræði vörukorta en í greininni er gerð ítarleg grein fyrir henni. Rannsóknin styðst við niðurstöður úr þremur könnunum meðal háskólanema við Háskóla Íslands sem gerðar voru í apríl 2008, febrúar 2009 og apríl 2009. Niðurstöður kannananna eftir hrunið eru bornar saman við niðurstöður fyrir það og af þeim samanburði dregnar ályktanir. Enn fremur er horft til eldri kannana en ímynd banka og sparisjóða hefur verið mæld með sömu aðferð frá 2004. Megin niðurstaða rannsóknarinnar er að ímynd Landsbankans virðist hafa skaðast mest í kjölfar bankahrunsins. Eftir hrunið tengist bankinn sterkar við spillingu en áður en fyrir það tengdist hann sterkt við eiginleika eins og traust og samfélagsleg ábyrgð. Bankahrunið virðist ekki aðeins hafa skaðað tiltekin vörumerki á markaðinum heldur hefur atvinnugreinin sem slík orðið fyrir miklum ímyndarlegum skaða. Meðaleinkunn jákvæðra eiginleika lækkar umtalsvert á meðan að meðaleinkunn eiginleika eins og spilling hækkar mikið hjá öllum bönkunum. Spilling virðist því vera sá eiginleiki sem helst einkennir íslenskan bankamarkað eftir bankahrunið. Þekkt er að skortur á trausti dregur úr virkni hagkerfisins og hefur áhrif á hagvöxt.

    A novel electroactive shape memory polymer nanocomposite of epoxidized linseed oil plasticized polylactic acid and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was prepared by a combination of solution blending, solvent cast technique, and hydraulic hot press moulding. In this study, polylactic acid (PLA) was first plasticized by epoxidized linseed oil (ELO) in order to overcome the major limitations of PLA, such as high brittleness, low toughness, and low tensile elongation. Then, MWCNTs were incorporated into the ELO plasticized PLA matrix at three different loadings (2, 3 and 5 wt. %), with the aim of making the resulting nanocomposites electrically conductive. The addition of ELO decreased glass transition temperature, and increased the elongation and thermal degradability of PLA, as shown in the results of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), tensile test, and thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were used to observe surface morphology, topography, and the dispersion of MWCNTs in the nanocomposite. Finally, the electroactive-shape memory effect (electroactive-SME) in the resulting nanocomposite was investigated by a fold-deploy "U"-shape bending test. As per the results, the addition of both ELO and MWCNTs to PLA matrix seemed to enhance its overall properties with a great deal of potential in improved shape memory. The 3 wt. % MWCNTs-reinforced nanocomposite system, which showed 95% shape recovery within 45 s at 40 DC voltage, is expected to be used as a preferential polymeric nanocomposite material in various actuators, sensors and deployable devices.

  12. Multiple growths of epitaxial lift-off solar cells from a single InP substrate

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lee, Kyusang; Shiu, Kuen-Ting; Zimmerman, Jeramy D.; Forrest, Stephen R.; Renshaw, Christopher K.

    2010-01-01

    We demonstrate multiple growths of flexible, thin-film indium tin oxide-InP Schottky-barrier solar cells on a single InP wafer via epitaxial lift-off (ELO). Layers that protect the InP parent wafer surface during the ELO process are subsequently removed by selective wet-chemical etching, with the active solar cell layers transferred to a thin, flexible plastic host substrate by cold welding at room temperature. The first- and second-growth solar cells exhibit no performance degradation under simulated Atmospheric Mass 1.5 Global (AM 1.5G) illumination, and have a power conversion efficiency of η p =14.4±0.4% and η p =14.8±0.2%, respectively. The current-voltage characteristics for the solar cells and atomic force microscope images of the substrate indicate that the parent wafer is undamaged, and is suitable for reuse after ELO and the protection-layer removal processes. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, reflection high-energy electron diffraction observation, and three-dimensional surface profiling show a surface that is comparable or improved to the original epiready wafer following ELO. Wafer reuse over multiple cycles suggests that high-efficiency; single-crystal thin-film solar cells may provide a practical path to low-cost solar-to-electrical energy conversion.

    Full Text Available This paper provides a brief overview of the progress made towards active fault research in India. An 8 m high scarp running for more than 80 km in the Rann of Kachchh is the classical example of the surface deformation caused by the great earthquake (1819 Kachchh earthquake. Integration of geological/geomorphic and seismological data has led to the identification of 67 active faults of regional scale, 15 in the Himalaya, 17 in the adjoining foredeep with as many as 30 neotectonic faults in the stable Peninsular India. Large-scale trenching programmes coupled with radiometric dates have begun to constraint the recurrence period of earthquakes; of the order of 500–1000 years for great earthquakes in the Himalaya and 10,000 years for earthquakes of >M6 in the Peninsular India. The global positioning system (GPS data in the stand alone manner have provided the fault parameters and length of rupture for the 2004 Andaman Sumatra earthquakes. Ground penetration radar (GPR and interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR techniques have enabled detection of large numbers of new active faults and their geometries. Utilization of modern technologies form the central feature of the major programme launched by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India to prepare geographic information system (GIS based active fault maps for the country.

    2016-01-01

    We report the adsorption efficiency of Cr(VI) on a strong anionic resin Dowex 1X8. The Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis of this adsorbent were investigated. Response surface methodology was applied to evaluate the main effects and interactions among initial pH, initial Cr(VI) concentration, adsorbent dose and temperature. Analysis of variance depicted that resin dose and initial pH were the most significant factors. Desirability function (DF) showed that the maximum Cr(VI) removal of 95.96% was obtained at initial pH 5, initial Cr(VI) concentration of 100 mg/L, resin dose of 2 g and temperature of 283 K. Additionally, a simulated industrial wastewater containing 14.95 mg/L of Cr(VI) was treated successfully by Dowex 1X8 at optimum conditions. Same experimental design was employed to develop the artificial neural network. Both models gave a high correlation coefficient (RRSM(2) = 0.932, RANN(2) = 0.996).

    Full Text Available This article discusses some recent studies of the New Women’s Movement in Sweden, Norway and Denmark in the 1970s. The article is mainly based on studies by the Swedish historians Elisabeth Elgán and Emma Isaksson the Norwegian historians Trina Rogg Korsvik and Gro Hagemann and the Danish political scientist Drude Dahlerup, all of whom have been prominent in this field in recent years or written important articles on the subject. They have written, for example, about the movement’s "story of origins" in each country, the methods that were used in the struggle for equality, ideology and the movement’s connection with equal-rights campaigns in other countries, especially the USA. The "story of origins" is re-evaluated. It is interesting to see how descriptions of the various public "actions" reflected the women’s ideas on the question of equality. The aim of the struggle was to increase equality in society, and naturally this had significant political implications, which proved to be a cause of friction and dissension when socialist and radical feminist ideologies came into conflict. The purpose here is to discuss specific factors that shaped the struggle, look into the ideology that it was based on and examine some of the developments that took place in these three countries. Relevant examples are cited from the equal-rights campaign of the Icelandic "Red Stockings Movement" (Rauðsokkahreyfingin. Some questions are put forward at the end regarding the movement in Iceland and its similarities to the movements in other Nordic countries. Considerably more research in the field in Iceland will be needed before it is possible to answer these questions.Hér er fjallað um nokkrar nýlegar rannsóknir á nýju kvennahreyfingunni í Svíþjóð, Noregi og Danmörku á áttunda áratug 20. aldar.

    2001-01-01

    This ASTER sub-scene covers an area of 12 x 15 km in NW India in the Thar Desert. The sand dunes of the Thar Desert constantly shift and take on new shapes. Located in northwestern India and eastern Pakistan, the desert is bounded on the south by a salt marsh known as the Rann of Kutch, and on the west by the Indus River plain. About 800 kilometers long and about 490 kilometers wide, the desert's terrain is mainly rolling sandhills with scattered growths of shrub and rock outcroppings. Only about 12 to 25 centimeters of rain fall on the desert each year, and temperatures rise as high as 52 degrees Celsius. Much of the population is pastoral, raising sheep for their wool. The image is located at 24.4 degrees north latitude and 69.3 degrees east longitude. The U.S. science team is located at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.

    2014-01-01

    The aim of this study was to systematically review the safety and efficacy of inhaled beclomethasone for asthma treatment in pregnant women. We performed a systematic review in Medline, LILACS and SciELO electronic databases in December 2012. A total of 3433 articles were found by using the keywords asthma, pregnancy and beclomethasone. Among these, 1666 were from Medline, via PubMed, and 1767 were from LILACS and SciELO. Nine of these articles were selected. Only one paper suggested an increased foetal risk for congenital malformations, and one other for offspring endocrine and metabolic disturbances. Data are mostly reassuring, supporting the use of glucocorticoid inhalants during pregnancy, and we found no evidence of inferiority in relation to efficacy and safety of beclomethasone compared to other drugs used in pregnant asthmatic women.

    This book presents, in a comprehensive way, current unmanned aviation regulation, airworthiness certification, special aircraft categories, pilot certification, federal aviation requirements, operation rules, airspace classes and regulation development models. It discusses unmanned aircraft systems levels of safety derived mathematically based on the corresponding levels for manned aviation. It provides an overview of the history and current status of UAS airworthiness and operational regulation worldwide. Existing regulations have been developed considering the need for a complete regulatory framework for UAS. It focuses on UAS safety assessment and functional requirements, achieved in terms of defining an “Equivalent Level of Safety”, or ELOS, with that of manned aviation, specifying what the ELOS requirement entails for UAS regulations. To accomplish this, the safety performance of manned aviation is first evaluated, followed by a novel model to derive reliability requirements for achieving target lev...

  17. High-Volume Production of Lightweight Multijunction Solar Cells

    Science.gov (United States)

    Youtsey, Christopher

    2015-01-01

    MicroLink Devices, Inc., has transitioned its 6-inch epitaxial lift-off (ELO) solar cell fabrication process into a manufacturing platform capable of sustaining large-volume production. This Phase II project improves the ELO process by reducing cycle time and increasing the yield of large-area devices. In addition, all critical device fabrication processes have transitioned to 6-inch production tool sets designed for volume production. An emphasis on automated cassette-to-cassette and batch processes minimizes operator dependence and cell performance variability. MicroLink Devices established a pilot production line capable of at least 1,500 6-inch wafers per month at greater than 80 percent yield. The company also increased the yield and manufacturability of the 6-inch reclaim process, which is crucial to reducing the cost of the cells.

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Organizational leaders in business and medicine have been experiencing a similar dilemma: how to ensure that their organizational members are adopting work innovations in a timely fashion. Organizational leaders in healthcare have attempted to resolve this dilemma by offering specific solutions, such as evidence-based medicine (EBM, but organizations are still not systematically adopting evidence-based practice innovations as rapidly as expected by policy-makers (the knowing-doing gap problem. Some business leaders have adopted a systems-based perspective, called the learning organization (LO, to address a similar dilemma. Three years ago, the Society of General Internal Medicine's Evidence-based Medicine Task Force began an inquiry to integrate the EBM and LO concepts into one model to address the knowing-doing gap problem. Methods During the model development process, the authors searched several databases for relevant LO frameworks and their related concepts by using a broad search strategy. To identify the key LO frameworks and consolidate them into one model, the authors used consensus-based decision-making and a narrative thematic synthesis guided by several qualitative criteria. The authors subjected the model to external, independent review and improved upon its design with this feedback. Results The authors found seven LO frameworks particularly relevant to evidence-based practice innovations in organizations. The authors describe their interpretations of these frameworks for healthcare organizations, the process they used to integrate the LO frameworks with EBM principles, and the resulting Evidence in the Learning Organization (ELO model. They also provide a health organization scenario to illustrate ELO concepts in application. Conclusion The authors intend, by sharing the LO frameworks and the ELO model, to help organizations identify their capacities to learn and share knowledge about evidence-based practice

  18. Crowdsourcing as a Novel Method to Evaluate Aesthetic Outcomes of Treatment for Unilateral Cleft Lip.

    2016-10-01

    Lack of convenient and reliable methods to grade aesthetic outcomes limits the ability to study results and optimize treatment of unilateral cleft lip. Crowdsourcing methods solicit contributions from a large group to achieve a greater task. The authors hypothesized that crowdsourcing could be used to reliably grade aesthetic outcomes of unilateral cleft lip. Fifty deidentified photographs of 8- to 10-year-old subjects (46 with unilateral cleft lip and four controls) were assembled. Outcomes were assessed using multiple pairwise comparisons that produced a rank order (Elo rank) of nasal appearance and, on a separate survey, by Asher-McDade ratings. Both surveys were repeated to assess reliability. A group of expert surgeons repeated the same tasks on a smaller subset of photographs. The authors obtained 2500 and 1900 anonymous, layperson evaluations by means of crowdsourcing on each Elo rank and Asher-McDade survey, respectively. Elo rank and Asher-McDade scores were highly reproducible (correlation coefficients, 0.87 and 0.98), and crowd evaluations agreed with those by expert surgeons (0.980 and 0.96 for Elo rank and Asher-McDade score, respectively). Crowdsourcing surveys were completed within 9 hours, whereas the expert surgeons required 3 months. On further analysis of their cleft subject sample set, the authors found that greater initial cleft severity was associated with worse aesthetic outcome. Outcomes assessed by crowds were reliable and correlated well with expert assessments. Crowdsourcing allows acquisition of massive numbers of layperson assessments on an unprecedented scale, and is a convenient, rapid, and reliable means of assessing aesthetic outcome of treatment for unilateral cleft lip.

    Full Text Available Resumo O Estado do Paraná destaca-se pela tradição no cultivo de plantas medicinais. O aumento em sua demanda através da busca de culturas alternativas e rentáveis e o estímulo a uma agricultura ecologicamente sustentável fomentou os agricultores a diversificarem a produção. A pesquisa de campo nos diferentes elos da cadeia produtiva do guaco permitiu construir seu fluxograma, caracterizar o sistema e fluxo de produção, os seus custos e receitas para analisar as Margens e Markups de comercialização. Os sistemas de coleta com enriquecimento e de cultivo apresentaram resultados diferenciados em relação ao seu custo de produção, onde o produtor/coletor alcança uma rentabilidade de 48,9 %, menor margem de comercialização entre todos os elos da cadeia, enquanto o produtor que cultiva o guaco como exploração obtém uma margem de comercialização de 346,4 %. As maiores margens de comercialização (1.733,3 % estão nos elos fora da porteira das propriedades, percentual entre diferença de preço pago pelo consumidor e o preço recebido pelo produtor/coletor. Os produtores/coletores podem agregar mais renda em vários elos da cadeia produtiva através da organização dos produtores e a melhoria no processo produtivo, possibilitando a melhoria econômica e social nas propriedades familiares, reduzindo o impacto ambiental e garantindo a sustentabilidade dos sistemas de produção.

    Full Text Available Pretende-se demonstrar que a atual forma vinculante de financiamento da educação básica, como o Fundo de Manutenção e Desenvolvimento da Educação Básica e Valorização dos Profissionais da Educação (FUNDEB, resulta de um entrelaçamento de três vertentes ou elos que vieram se constituindo ao longo da história da educação brasileira. Tais elos, por sua vez, implicam uma concepção social de Estado tensionada à sua vertente liberal. Esses elos condicionam o impacto das políticas de vertente liberal sobre a educação escolar.This paper seeks to demonstrate that the current binding way of funding basic education through the Fundo de Manutenção e Desenvolvimento da Educação Básica e Valorização dos Profissionais da Educação (Fund for the Maintenance and Development of Basic Education - FUNDEB originates from the intertwining of three aspects or links that have emerged along the history of Brazilian education. These links, as for them, imply a social conception of the State more influenced by liberalism. Such links govern the impact of the liberal policies on school education.

    SUMMARY Apicomplexa are parasitic protozoa that cause important human diseases including malaria, cryptosporidiosis and toxoplasmosis. The replication of these parasites within their target host cell is dependent on both salvage as well as de novo synthesis of fatty acids. In T. gondii, fatty acid synthesis via the apicoplast-localized FASII is essential for pathogenesis, while the role of two other fatty acid biosynthetic complexes remains unclear. Here we demonstrate that the ER-localized fatty acid elongation (ELO) is essential for parasite growth. Conditional knock-down of the non-redundant hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydratase and enoyl-CoA reductase enzymes in the ELO pathway severely repressed intracellular parasite growth. 13C-glucose and 13C-acetate labeling and comprehensive lipidomic analyses of these mutants showed a selective defect in synthesis of unsaturated long and very long chain fatty acids (LCFAs and VLCFAs) and depletion of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylethanolamine species containing unsaturated LCFAs and VLCFAs. This requirement for ELO pathway was by-passed by supplementing the media with specific fatty acids, indicating active, but inefficient import of host fatty acids. Our experiments highlight a gap between the fatty acid needs of the parasite and availability of specific fatty acids in the host cell that the parasite has to close using a dedicated synthesis and modification pathway.

    Full Text Available This paper reports molecular dynamics simulation of phospholipase A2 (PLA2– substrate that has been done. Non-bonding length, partial atomic charge and electrostatic energy were used to evaluation the interaction between PLA2 and substrate. The research was subjected for three types of PLA2 of different sources, i.e, homo sapien, bovinus and porcinus, by using computer files of their molecular structures. The files with code 3elo, 1bp2, dan 1y6o were downloaded from protein data bank. Substrate structure can be found in 1y60 and was separated from its enzyme structure and docked into two other PLA2 structures for simulation purpose. Molecular dynamics simulations were done for 30000 steps with constant in number of molecules, volume and temperature (NVT. The results showed the existing of flip-flop mechanism as basic feature of PLA2 – substrate reactions. Interaction length analysis results indicated the presence of water molecules on the structures of 1bp2 and 3elo at the time of the simulation was completed. The existence of aspagine at the reaction site confirmed the theory that this amino acid is responsible for the survival of the reaction. the electrostatic energy increased substantially in the interaction after homo sapien PLA2 (3elo and Bovinus (1bp2 with the substrate. Inverse effect took place in the PLA porcinus (1y6o.

    The search for more effective new drugs to treat Leishmaniasis is undoubtedly relevant. Our objective in this study was to investigate research publications addressing plants with anti-Leishmaniasis activity. An integrative review of the literature from 2000 to 2011 was carried out in the databases such as Latin-American and Caribbean Health Sciences (LILACS), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), and Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE). In the initial search, 150 articles were found, with 25 based in LILACS, 68 in SciELO, and 46 in MEDLINE. From these data, after reading the abstracts that were available online, we excluded 12 from LILACS, 39 from SciELO, and 28 from MEDLINE for presenting article duplications. This left 61 articles to be read; however, only 18 of them answered the research questions and determined the final sample of this review. The results showed that research involving the search for new drugs against Leishmaniasis should be intensified, especially for the amastigote form, and studies with in vivo tests could become a great strategy for successfully finding new treatments for Leishmaniasis. It is believed that it is extremely important and urgent to conduct more trials in search of new effective drugs against Leishmaniasis that possess minimal adverse effects and that are easily accessible to the public.

  10. Properties of ZrN films as substrate masks in liquid phase epitaxial lateral overgrowth of compound semiconductors

    The usefulness of ZrN films as masks for epitaxial lateral overgrowth of GaAs and GaSb by liquid phase epitaxy is studied. It was observed that during the growth process ZrN masks are mechanically stable, they adhere strongly to the substrate and do not show any signs of degradation even at the growth temperature as high as 750 C. Moreover, perfect selectivity of GaAs and GaSb epitaxy was obtained on ZrN masked substrates ensuring the growth wide and thin layers. To study the influence of growth conditions on electrical resistivity of the mask, ZrN films deposited on GaAs substrates were annealed in various atmospheres. It was found that at temperatures higher than about 580 C the ZrN masks become highly resistive when heat-treated in hydrogen flow employed during growth. Usually, LPE growth temperature for GaAs is higher. Thus, ELO growth of GaAs by LPE becomes more difficult, though still possible, if ZrN masks are to be applied as buried electrical contacts. For GaSb ELO layers however, typical LPE growth temperature is about 480 C. This allows us to grow high quality GaSb ELO layers by LPE still preserving high electrical conductivity of ZrN mask.

  11. Polymerization of Oriental Lacquer (Urushi with Epoxidized Linseed Oil as a New Reactive Diluent

    Full Text Available A hybrid lacquer (HBL paint prepared by combining a natural kurome lacquer (KL paint and an amino silane reagent, for example, N-(2-aminoethyl-3-aminopropyl triethoxysilane (AATES, produced a polymerized film faster than the KL paint alone. However, the viscosity of the HBL paint was too viscous for easy handling. Addition of 10 wt% of an epoxidized linseed oil, ELO-6, with 6.4 mol% epoxidation as a reactive diluent to the HBL paint decreased the viscosity by 1/2 from 25476 mPa·s to 12841 mPa·s and improved the ease of coatability. The polymerization mechanism was elucidated by NMR measurements of extracts from the resulting polymerization films, suggesting that amino groups in the HBL paint reacted with epoxy groups of ELO-6 in the lacquer matrix, and then the complex reacted with double bonds of the urushiol side-chain by autooxidation and cross-linking reactions to give a hard polymerized film with a high quality of color and gloss. These results indicate that the addition of ELO-6 improved the polymerizability of both KL and HBL paints without decreasing the quality of the resulting films.

    This study focuses on retraction notices from two major Latin American/Caribbean indexing databases: SciELO and LILACS. SciELO includes open scientific journals published mostly in Latin America/the Caribbean, from which 10 % are also indexed by Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge Journal of Citation Reports (JCR). LILACS has a similar geographical coverage and includes dissertations and conference/symposia proceedings, but it is limited to publications in the health sciences. A search for retraction notices was performed in these two databases using the keywords "retracted", "retraction" "withdrawal", "withdrawn", "removed" and "redress". Documents were manually checked to identify those that actually referred to retractions, which were then analyzed and categorized according to the reasons alleged in the notices. Dates of publication/retraction and time to retraction were also recorded. Searching procedures were performed between June and December 2014. Thirty-one retraction notices were identified, fifteen of which were in JCR-indexed journals. "Plagiarism" was alleged in six retractions of this group. Among the non-JCR journals, retraction reasons were alleged in fourteen cases, twelve of which were attributed to "plagiarism". The proportion of retracted articles for the SciELO database was approximately 0.005 %. The reasons alleged in retraction notices may be used as signposts to inform discussions in Latin America on plagiarism and research integrity. At the international level, these results suggest that the correction of the literature is becoming global and is not limited to mainstream international publications.

    Formulado no final da década de 50, o modelo de percolação concentra-se em descrever o meio poroso, que será visto neste trabalho como uma rede de canais aleatórios, por onde escoa um fluido determinístico. Se o número de canais for suficientemente grande, então eles estarão ligados e o meio se tornará permeável à passagem do fluido. Neste caso, dizemos que houve a percolação do fluido. Reformulando o modelo acima, podemos escrever um código particularmente adaptado para simulações em Galáxias, onde iremos supor que os canais formam um reticulado, e que cada sítio da rede representa um poro que será interpretado como uma região ativa de formação estelar. Para cada elo teremos um pequeno canal ligando dois sítios vizinhos, que poderá, após um tempo "t", induzir ou não a formação de uma região ativa no poro vizinho. Para simular a passagem desta região ativa através dos poros, diremos que um elo está aberto com probabilidade p e fechado com probabilidade 1-p. Dessa forma, passamos a imaginar configurações de elos abertos e fechados, onde cada configuração ocorre com uma certa probabilidade, dada por p|A|(1-p)|F|, onde |A| é o número de elos abertos e |F| o número de elos fechados da configuração. A expressão anterior só tem importância física se |A| e |F| forem ambos finitos, pois, caso contrário, a probabilidade de ocorrência de uma dada configuração será sempre nula. Neste trabalho, foram considerados dados cinemáticos publicados na literatura bem como aqueles obtidos pelos autores a partir de observações fotométricas realizadas no Observatório de Las Campanãs, em 1994, para a Galáxia Anelada Peculiar HRG 03401. Mostraremos que para certos valores de p, situados entre 0,5 e 0,6, os clusters assim formados irão simular, de maneira coerente, o referido objeto.

    -Kabylia-Peloritani-Calabria; Michard et al. 2002) is rendered necessary for two principal reasons: (a) the contrasting tectonometamorphic evolution of the West Ligurian Ocean (future Alps-Corsica-Betics) and the East Ligurian Ocean (future Apennine) make it necessary to kinematically decouple the fate of these two branches of Alpine Tethys located on opposite sides of the Alkapekia continental block; (b) Alkapecia that was formerly part of the African and/or Adriatic plate overrode parts of the Iberian, African and Adria plates as an independent continental microplate during Late Cenozoic rollback subduction leading to the present-day Betic-Rif arc and the Calabrian Trench-Arc system. Our complex five-plate model provides an explanation of the equally complex evolution of the Western Mediterranean-Alps system, as discussed in part II of this contribution (Handy et al.).

    To determine the diagnostic accuracy of a new point-of-care assay detecting anti-deamidated gliadin peptides in celiac disease (CD) patients. One-hundred-and-twelve patients (age range: 1.8-79.2 years old) with clinical symptoms suggestive of CD and/or first-degree relatives (FDR) of CD patients (n = 66), and confirmed CD on a gluten-free diet (GFD) (n = 46), were prospectively enrolled in the study at Gastroenterology outpatient clinics for adult patients and from the Gastroenterology Consultation Ward at the Pediatric Department of the University Hospital of Geneva. Written informed consent was obtained from all subjects enrolled. The study received approval from the local ethics committee. The original CD diagnosis had been based on serum-positive IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) (QuantaLite™, Inova Diagnostics, San Diego, CA, United States) and on biopsy results. Serum samples from all study participants were tested by the new CD lateral flow immunochromatographic assay (CD-LFIA) device, Simtomax® Blood Drop (Augurix SA, BioArk, Monthey, Switzerland) to detect immunoglobulin (Ig)A and IgG antibodies against deamidated gliadin peptides. The diagnostic performance was evaluated using receiver operating characteristic curves with 95%CIs. A cut-off of 2 on the Rann colorimetric scale was used to calculate the device's sensitivity and specificity. CD-LFIA was highly accurate in detecting untreated celiac patients. In the group of patients with CD symptoms and/or FDR, eight new cases of CD were detected by ELISA and biopsy. All of these new cases were also correctly identified by CD-LFIA. The test yielded four false positive and four false negative results. The false positive results were all within the groups with clinical symptoms suggestive of CD and/or FDR, whereas the false negative results were all within the GFD group. The test yeld a sensitivity of 78.9% (95%CI: 54.4-93.9) and specificity of 95.7% (95%CI: 89

    Supply of fresh water on sustainable basis to all inhabitants is the national responsibility. As a part of national programme to improve quality of life in our society, Desalination Division, BARC has undertaken a project on construction of barge mounted mobile desalination unit of capacity 50 m 3 /d under the domain of health care. The plant is capable of producing safe drinking water at any site and condition where potable water is limited from water sources as lakes and dams, spring, river, bores, estuaries, and open sea. The unit is also capable of purifying nuclear, biological and chemical contaminated water source namely arsenic, fluoride and nitrate. However, the main objective of this prototype mobile unit is to derive potable water from sea water. The barge mounted desalination plant could be useful to the people on shore, in areas like Rann of Kutch or coastal areas which had been affected by natural calamities like floods or severe drought; in small islands like Lakshadeep and Andaman and Nicobar. This type of mobile unit could also be useful for constructional purposes of plants located adjoining to the shore. The plant encompasses state of art reverse osmosis (RO) technology with membrane based ultrafiltration (UF) pretreatment system along with built-in back wash provision and remineralisation. The system is designed for heavy duty tasks in order to withstand frequent relocation from site to site and in skid patterns for portable transportation via road upon requirement. The conceptual design of the plant is over. The design and constructional aspects of the mobile plant are elaborated in this paper. (author)

  18. Satellite Observations of Tropospheric BrO over Salt Lakes and Northern High Latitudes from EOS/OMI and SNPP/OMPS

    We present observations of tropospheric bromine monoxide (BrO) derived from two satellite instruments: the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on EOS-Aura, and the Nadir Mapper component of the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) on Suomi/NPP. BrO observations from OMPS constitute a new and experimental measurement that we first report on here and compare with the standard BrO data product from OMI. BrO is a halogen oxide present mostly in the lower stratosphere, where it catalytically destroys ozone with about 25 times the efficiency of ClO. BrO also has a tropospheric component, where it is released from sea surfaces, at the interface of ocean water and sea ice in the polar spring, in volcanic plumes, and in the vicinity of salt lakes. Tropospheric BrO has been linked to mercury (Hg) deposition through BrO-induced conversion of gaseous Hg to reactive Hg, which is then deposited on the surface and enters the food chain, ultimately affecting human health. As part of NASA's Aura Science Team, we are developing an OMI Tropospheric BrO data product that provides a unique global data set on BrO spatial and vertical distribution in the troposphere and stratosphere. Information of this kind is currently unavailable from any of the past and present bromine-monitoring instruments. In this presentation, we focus on multi-year time series of BrO released from a range of salt lakes - the Rann of Kutch, Salar de Uyuni, the Aral Sea, and others. We quantify the amount of bromine released from the lakes and investigate the possibility of lake desiccation monitoring based on independent BrO observations. The quality and limits of OMI and OMPS tropospheric BrO observations is investigated by comparison with ground-based MAX-DOAS observations over central Greenland.

Lagðir voru fyrir spurningalistar og eru niðurstöðurnar settar fram með aðferðafræði vörukorta. Helstu niðurstöður eru þær að á heildina litið er ímynd Íslands talin vera sterk og skýr og í samræmi við þær rannsóknir sem borið er saman við. Náttúrufegurð og landslag eru mjög skýrt tengd við ímynd landsins og auk þess að vera talinn öruggur og vingjarnlegur staður eru þar taldir möguleikar á að lenda í ævintýrum. Ímyndin er á margan hátt svipuð hjá báðum hópum en í nokkrum atriðum er munur. Almennt er ímyndin sterkari meðal ferðamanna en Íslendinga sjálfra. Nauðsynlegt er þó að gera á þessu þann fyrirvara að úrtakið meðal Íslendinga er þægindaúrtak þar sem stór hluti svarenda eru háskólanemar. Það vekur eftir sem áður vissa athygli hve niðurstöður eru svipaðar.

    rannsóknir á dreifingu ríkisútgjalda eftir landsvæðum af skornum skammti. Í þessari rannsókn er sjónum beint að útgjöldum ríkisins í Norðausturkjördæmi á grundvelli fjárlaga ársins 2011 og viðbótarupplýsinga sem safnað var hjá einstökum stofnunum og ráðuneytum. Niðurstöður sýna að starfsemi ríkisins á Norðurlandi eystra er um 11% minni en mannfjöldi segir til um eða sem nemur rúmlega 74 þúsund krónum á hvern íbúa á ári. Starfsemi ríkisins á Austurlandi er um 23% minni en mannfjöldi segir til um eða sem nemur rúmlega 159 þúsund krónum á hvern íbúa á ári. Á hinn bóginn leggur ríkið til svipaða upphæð til að stuðla að því að þjónusta sveitarfélaga sé sambærileg því sem gerist annars staðar og til að styðja við landbúnað á þessum svæðum. Ef áætlaðar tekjur ríkisins eru bornar saman við útgjöld ríkisins í kjördæminu kemur í ljós að útgjöldin eru hærri sem nemur 625 Mkr eða 1,2% af skatttekjum miðað við fjárlög ársins 2011. Til samanburðar var halli af rekstri íslenska ríkisins skv. fjárlögum 2011 um 7,9% eftir vaxtagreiðslur. Þetta er vísbending um að ímyndað, sjálfstætt "Norðausturríki" gæti staðið á eigin fótum en til að svara því þyrfti þó mun viðameiri rannsóknir.

Veikleikarnir eru hins vegar að lítil klasamyndun hefur átt sér stað innan greinarinnar, ásamt því að lítil vitund er um samlegðaráhrif sem geta eflt greinina. Heimamarkaðurinn er of lítill og miklar sveiflur í eftirspurn hafa torveldað vöxt greinarinnar. Endurgreiðsluhlutfall ríkisins þarf að hækka úr 20% í 25-30% til að atvinnugreinin geti talist fyllilega samkeppnishæf alþjóðlega. Almenn efnahagsskilyrði hafa dregið úr samkeppnishæfni atvinnugreinarinnar, s.s. óstöðugur gjaldmiðill og gjaldeyrishöft þó lægra gengi hafi styrkt hana. Niðurstöður rannsóknarinnar hafa hagnýtt gildi bæði fyrir atvinnugreinina og stjórnvöld.

  2. "We do as well as we can". The experiences of staff assisting disabled people in community residential homes "Við gerum bara eins og við getum" - Þjónusta við fólk með fjölþættar skerðingar

    Full Text Available Staff supporting young people and adults with complex and severe neurological impairments are the key to their communication, quality of life and participation. This study reports the knowledge and experiences of staff members supporting disabled people living in community residential homes, as well as their perceived needs for information and support. Furthermore, the study aimed to reveal staff´s views on their possibilities to support service users´ wellbeing, participation and quality of life. Participants were twelve experienced staff members. Qualitative methods were used and data were collected through semi-structured interviews. The results of the study reveal that services provided in community residential homes for people with complex and severe impairments are not in line with human rights treaties, including the right to health. Further, it does not mirror the social approach to disability which today is the focus of policy frameworks. The staff were positive toward service users, tried to do their best but lacked resources. Their knowledge of service user´s health-related needs was scarce and little was done to prevent further impairments or increasing health problems. Staff reported lack of human resources, high staff turnover and lack of information, training and support. Recent governmental changes, provide possibilities for revised emphasis in the service provided, on cooperation between different sectors as well as for the development of transdisciplinary services.Aðstoðarfólk á heimilum fólks með fjölþættar skerðingar er mikilvægur hlekkur í lífi þess og lykill að samskiptum, lífsgæðum og þátttöku.

  4. Prioritization Risk Integration Simulation Model (PRISM) For Environmental Remediation and Waste Management - 12097

    The PRISM (Prioritization Risk Integration Simulation Model), a computer model was developed to support the Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) in its mission to clean up the environmental legacy from the Nation's nuclear weapons materials production complex. PRISM provides a comprehensive, fully integrated planning tool that can tie together DOE-EM's projects. It is designed to help DOE managers develop sound, risk-informed business practices and defend program decisions. It provides a better ability to understand and manage programmatic risks. The underlying concept for PRISM is that DOE-EM 'owns' a portfolio of environmental legacy obligations (ELOs), and that its mission is to transform the ELOs from their current conditions to acceptable conditions, in the most effective way possible. There are many types of ELOs - - contaminated soils and groundwater plumes, disused facilities awaiting D and D, and various types of wastes waiting for processing or disposal. For a given suite of planned activities, PRISM simulates the outcomes as they play out over time, allowing for all key identified uncertainties and risk factors. Each contaminated building, land area and waste stream is tracked from cradle to grave, and all of the linkages affecting different waste streams are captured. The progression of the activities is fully dynamic, reflecting DOE-EM's prioritization approaches, precedence requirements, available funding, and the consequences of risks and uncertainties. The top level of PRISM is the end-user interface that allows rapid evaluation of alternative scenarios and viewing the results in a variety of useful ways. PRISM is a fully probabilistic model, allowing the user to specify uncertainties in input data (such as the magnitude of an existing groundwater plume, or the total cost to complete a planned activity) as well as specific risk events that might occur. PRISM is based on the GoldSim software

  5. Extreme events in total ozone over Arosa – Part 1: Application of extreme value theory

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    H. E. Rieder

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available In this study ideas from extreme value theory are for the first time applied in the field of stratospheric ozone research, because statistical analysis showed that previously used concepts assuming a Gaussian distribution (e.g. fixed deviations from mean values of total ozone data do not adequately address the structure of the extremes. We show that statistical extreme value methods are appropriate to identify ozone extremes and to describe the tails of the Arosa (Switzerland total ozone time series. In order to accommodate the seasonal cycle in total ozone, a daily moving threshold was determined and used, with tools from extreme value theory, to analyse the frequency of days with extreme low (termed ELOs and high (termed EHOs total ozone at Arosa. The analysis shows that the Generalized Pareto Distribution (GPD provides an appropriate model for the frequency distribution of total ozone above or below a mathematically well-defined threshold, thus providing a statistical description of ELOs and EHOs. The results show an increase in ELOs and a decrease in EHOs during the last decades. The fitted model represents the tails of the total ozone data set with high accuracy over the entire range (including absolute monthly minima and maxima, and enables a precise computation of the frequency distribution of ozone mini-holes (using constant thresholds. Analyzing the tails instead of a small fraction of days below constant thresholds provides deeper insight into the time series properties. Fingerprints of dynamical (e.g. ENSO, NAO and chemical features (e.g. strong polar vortex ozone loss, and major volcanic eruptions, can be identified in the observed frequency of extreme events throughout the time series. Overall the new approach to analysis of extremes provides more information on time series properties and variability than previous approaches that use only monthly averages and/or mini-holes and mini-highs.

  6. Symptomless Multi-Variable Apnea Prediction Index Assesses Obstructive Sleep Apnea Risk and Adverse Outcomes in Elective Surgery

    Abstract Study Objective To validate that the symptomless Multi-Variable Apnea Prediction index (sMVAP) is associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) diagnosis and assess the relationship between sMVAP and adverse outcomes in patients having elective surgery. We also compare associations between Bariatric surgery, where preoperative screening for OSA risk is mandatory, and non-Bariatric surgery groups who are not screened routinely for OSA. Methods Using data from 40 432 elective inpatient surgeries, we used logistic regression to determine the relationship between sMVAP and previous OSA, current hypertension, and postoperative complications: extended length of stay (ELOS), intensive-care-unit-stay (ICU-stay), and respiratory complications (pulmonary embolism, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and/or aspiration pneumonia). Results Higher sMVAP was associated with increased likelihood of previous OSA, hypertension and all postoperative complications (p complications compared to the bottom quintile. For ELOS, ICU-stay, and respiratory complications, respective odds ratios (95% CI) were: 1.83 (1.62, 2.07), 1.44 (1.32, 1.58), and 1.85 (1.37, 2.49). Compared against age-, gender- and BMI-matched patients having Bariatric surgery, sMVAP was more strongly associated with postoperative complications in non-Bariatric surgical groups, including: (1) ELOS (Orthopedics [p complications (Orthopedics [p =.037] and Otorhinolaryngology [p =.011]). Conclusions OSA risk measured by sMVAP correlates with higher risk for select postoperative complications. Associations are stronger for non-Bariatric surgeries, where preoperative screening for OSA is not routinely performed. Thus, preoperative screening may reduce OSA-related risk for adverse postoperative outcomes. PMID:28364424

    2012-02-01

    The objective of this integrative review was to identify and analyze the scientific publications regarding the use of active methodologies in nursing care and teaching in Brazil. The survey included national publications, from 1999 to 2009, using the following databases: LILACS, BDENF, MEDLINE and SciELO. A total of 28 articles were selected. The results and analysis pointed to problematization as the primary active methodology used, the lack of theoretical frameworks to plan the pedagogical action, and the excessive use of teaching techniques that do not always characterize innovation. In conclusion, the implementation of innovative methodologies requires further studies and more investment in research and dissemination on the subject.

    . The VPIN metric involves decomposing volume into active buys and sells. We use the best-bid-offer (BBO) files from the CME Group to construct (near) perfect trade classification measures for the E-mini S&P 500 futures contract. We investigate the accuracy of the ELO Bulk Volume Classification (BVC) scheme...... and find it inferior to a standard tick rule based on individual transactions. Moreover, when VPIN is constructed from accurate classification, it behaves in a diametrically opposite way to BVC-VPIN. We also find the latter to have forecast power for short-term volatility solely because it generates...

    weeks preceding a vote in order to prevent it from using its authority upon the voters. This infringement on the freedom of speech in the name of a so-called liberty of choice and judgment led to a political battle in the media. The eristic rhetoric practiced at this occasion relied on stigmatization of the opponent, a battle over key definitions and a disagreement about the nature of the problems, confirming Angenot’s hypothesis of a dialogue of the deaf. Rather than exchanging arguments, the two sides fought over questions of borders, lexicon and legitimacy.

  7. Strategy for prioritizing whistleblowing with potential risks related to health services

    2017-11-01

    Full Text Available Introduction: The Sanitary Surveillance of Health Services receives daily denunciations that refer to situations of risk that can hardly be measured quantitatively and attribute to some type of specific damage, in a context of great uncertainty. Objective: Considering such situations should be adequately addressed under the health risk paradigm, this work had as objective identifying notions about risk and its forms of analysis in the scope of Sanitary Surveillance of Health Services, as well as the existence of strategies and models in the analysis and treatment of denunciations. Method: An extensive literature review (through the Regional Portal of the BVS, databases SciELO and SciELO Books, and the journal Visa em Debate was conducted. Results: Although the results point to a relatively recent discussion regarding the model of potential risk analysis as an operational concept for the field of health surveillance in health services, there is no description of strategies or models applied to the analysis or treatment of whistleblowing. Thus, it is discussed and proposed a strategy for the initial analysis of reports with potential risk, which seeks to bring minimally objective criteria, in a field marked by enormous subjectivity. Conclusions: We conclude by indicating that the presented strategy is an initial instrument for the management of whistleblowing that must be discussed and adapted to the reality and context of health surveillance agencies.

    Plastination is an anatomical technique that consists of replacing the liquids and fat of specimens by reactive polymers through forced impregnation in a vacuum. These are then polymerized to achieve the final result. E12 sheet plastination involves epoxy resin impregnation of thin (2-4 mm) and ultra-thin (<2 mm) tissue sheets, producing dry, transparent, odorless, non-toxic and long-lasting sheets. E12 sheet plastination techniques were reviewed using MEDLINE, EMBASE and SciELO databases, and manual searches. After searching, 616 records were found using the online and manual searches (MEDLINE, n: 207; EMBASE, n: 346; SciELO, n: 44; Manual search: 23). Finally, 96 records were included in this review (after duplicates and articles unrelated to the subject were excluded). The aim of this work was to review the E12 sheet plastination technique, searching for articles concerning views of it, identifying the different variants implemented by researchers since its creation by Gunther von Hagens, and to identify its applications from teaching and research in anatomy to morphological sciences.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo identificar o nível de alinhamento das dimensões da informação entre dois elos da cadeia de suprimentos, a indústria de medicamentos e as farmácias e drogarias segundo a abordagem da gestão da cadeia de suprimentos. Para tanto, foi utilizada uma amostra de 85 empresas, sendo 51 delas varejistas de farmácias e drogarias e 34 fabricantes de medicamentos, localizadas na região metropolitana da cidade de São Paulo, SP. A pesquisa é de natureza exploratória descritiva, com aporte quantitativo, tendo os dados sidos coletados por meio de um questionário estruturado com questões fechadas. Os resultados evidenciaram que ocorre o alinhamento em padrões pouco significativos entre as dimensões da informação quando comparados os dados informacionais desses dois elos pesquisados. Como essa evidência contrasta com a literatura que defende que a gestão da cadeia de suprimentos deve apresentar elevado alinhamento estratégico das informações com seus parceiros, foram formuladas algumas hipóteses sobre essa constatação.

  14. What Can We Learn from the Crystal Structures of Metallacarboranes?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alan J. Welch

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available The determination of the molecular structures of metallacarboranes by X-ray diffraction remains critical to the development of the field, in some cases being the only viable way in which the overall architecture and the isomeric form of the molecule can be established. In such studies one problem frequently met is how to distinguish correctly {BH} and {CH} vertices, and this review begins by describing two relatively new methods, the Vertex-Centroid Distance (VCD and Boron-Hydrogen Distance (BHD methods, that have been developed to overcome the problem. Once the cage C atoms are located correctly, the resulting metallacarborane structure can frequently be analysed on the basis that cage B has a greater Structural Trans Effect (STE than does cage C. In the absence of significant competing effects this gives rise to unequal M–L distances for a homogeneous ligand set and to a preferred Exopolyhedral Ligand Orientation (ELO for a heterogeneous ligand set. ELO considerations can be used, amongst other things, to rank order the STEs of ligands and to identify suspect (in terms of cage C atom positions metallacarborane structures.

    Biomedical journals have suffered world wide revolutions due to globalization of information, evolving from the printed version to the electronic one. The status of Peruvian medical journals is not currently known. To determine indexing, production for 2005 to 2007; and visibility of Peruvian biomedical journals for 2008. We identified indexed journals in Medline, SciELO-Peru, Redalyc, LILACS, and others, through informatic search and described the journals production with more indizations, estimating the original research production index. An analysis of electronic visibility of the journals most indexed in SciELO-Peru, Redalyc and SISBIB data bases is done. We identified 29 current journals by 2007. Only Revista de Gastroenterologia del Peru was indexed to Medline. Revista Peruana de Medicina Experimental y Salud Publica was the journal with more production, with 176 publications between 2005 and 2007.Anales de la Facultad de Medicina was the journal with the higher original investigation index, with 0,61. Anales de la Facultad de Medicina had the higher number of electronic visits with 963 965 visits in 2008. There is a great diversity of biomedical journals in Peru but few are indexed and only one is seen in Medline. Original research production is not high but journals electronic visibility is above 600 thousand visitors.

    Si-based integrated circuits have been intensively developed over the past several decades through ultimate device scaling. However, the Si technology has reached the physical limitations of the scaling. These limitations have fuelled the search for alternative active materials (for transistors) and the introduction of optical interconnects (called “Si photonics”). A series of attempts to circumvent the Si technology limits are based on the use of III-V compound semiconductor due to their superior benefits, such as high electron mobility and direct bandgap. To use their physical properties on a Si platform, the formation of high-quality III-V films on the Si (III-V/Si) is the basic technology ; however, implementing this technology using a high-throughput process is not easy. Here, we report new concepts for an ultra-high-throughput heterogeneous integration of high-quality III-V films on the Si using the wafer bonding and epitaxial lift off (ELO) technique. We describe the ultra-fast ELO and also the re-use of the III-V donor wafer after III-V/Si formation. These approaches provide an ultra-high-throughput fabrication of III-V/Si substrates with a high-quality film, which leads to a dramatic cost reduction. As proof-of-concept devices, this paper demonstrates GaAs-based high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs), solar cells, and hetero-junction phototransistors on Si substrates.

    Electroencephalography has been used to establish the relationship among cortical activity, exercise and mood, such as asymmetry, absolute and relative power. The purpose of this study was to systematically review the influence of cortical activity on mood state induced by exercise. The Preferred Reporting Items in Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses was followed in this study. The studies were retrieved from MEDLINE/PubMed, ISI Web of Knowledge and SciELO. Search was conducted in all databases using the following terms: EEG asymmetry, sLORETA, exercise, with affect, mood and emotions. Based on the defined criteria, a total of 727 articles were found in the search conducted in the literature (666 in Pubmed, 54 in ISI Web of Science, 2 in SciELO and 5 in other data sources). Total of 11 studies were selected which properly met the criteria for this review. Nine out of 11 studies used the frontal asymmetry, four used absolute and relative power and one used sLORETA. With regard to changes in cortical activity and mood induced by exercise, six studies attributed this result to different intensities, one to duration, one to type of exercise and one to fitness level. In general, EEG measures showed contradictory evidence of its ability to predict or modulate psychological mood states through exercise intervention.

In SciELO-Br database, the descriptors "obesity", "energy metabolism", "energy balance", and "energy imbalance" were used, once it was not possible to find national articles discussing the energy gap. In the pediatric population, four studies were performed and indicate that children and adolescents are gradually gaining weight due to a small, but persistent, daily positive energy balance of 70 to 160kcal above the total energy suitable for growth. The results suggest that small changes in daily eating behavior as well as physical activity would be enough to prevent future weight gain in this population. gradual weight gain can be explained by small daily average of positive energy balance, from 70 to 160kcal above the total energy suitable for growth. The incentive to small changes in eating behavior and physical activities that promotes daily reduction of 160kcal can be an accessible practice in order to block weight gain in this population.

    In the last few years, bibliometric studies have proliferated, seeking to provide data on world research. This study analyzes the profile of the Brazilian scientific production in the A (H1N1) influenza field between 2009 and 2011. The research was conducted in MEDLINE, SciELO and LILACS databases, selecting papers in which the term "H1N1" and "Brazil" were defined as the main topics. The data were analyzed taking into consideration the Brazilian state and institution in which the articles were produced, the impact factor of the journal and the language. The research revealed 40 documents (27 from MEDLINE, 16 from SciELO and 24 from LILACS). The journal impact factor ranged from 0.0977 to 8.1230. A similar amount of articles were written in English and Portuguese and São Paulo was the most productive state in the country, with 95% of the Brazilian production originating from the Southern and Southeastern regions. Linguistic data indicate that previous efforts made in order to improve the scientific production of Brazilian researchers making their observations attain a broader scientific audience produced results. It is necessary to assess the scientific studies, especially those conducted with public funds, in order to ensure that the results will benefit society.

    Doppler echocardiography (Echo) is a non-invasive method of excellent accuracy to screen portopulmonary hypertension (PPH) and to assess intrapulmonary shunts (IPS) in chronic liver disease (CLD). In the past decade, Echo proved to play a fundamental role in the diagnosis of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy (CCM). To perform a systematic review of relevant articles on the subject 'Echo in CLD'. In November 2011, a systematic review was performed in the PubMed, LILACS and SciELO databases, and the characteristics of the studies selected were reported. The search based on descriptors and free terms obtained 204 articles (179 in Pubmed, 21 in LILACS, and 1 in SciELO). Of those 204 articles, 22 were selected for systematic review. A meta-analysis could not be performed because of the heterogeneity of the articles. Echo should be part of CLD stratification for screening PPH, IPS and CCM, because, most of the time, such complications are diagnosed only when patients are already waiting for a liver transplant.

    Not responsible self-medication refers to drug use in high doses without rational indication and often associated with alcohol abuse. It can lead to liver damage and drug interactions, and may cause liver failure. To warn about how the practice of self-medication can be responsible for acute liver failure. Were used the Medline via PubMed, Cochrane Library, SciELO and Lilacs, and additional information on institutional sites of interest crossing the headings acute liver failure [tiab] AND acetaminophen [tiab]; self-medication [tiab] AND acetaminophen [tiab]; acute liver failure [tiab] AND dietary supplements [tiab]; self-medication [tiab] AND liver failure [tiab] and self-medication [tiab] AND green tea [tiab]. In Lilacs and SciELO used the descriptor self medication in Portuguese and Spanish. From total surveyed were selected 27 articles and five sites specifically related to the purpose of this review. Legislation and supervision disabled and information inaccessible to people, favors the emergence of cases of liver failure drug in many countries. In the list of released drugs that deserve more attention and care, are some herbal medicines used for the purpose of weight loss, and acetaminophen. It is recommended that institutes of health intensify supervision and better orient their populations on drug seemingly harmless, limiting the sale of products or requiring a prescription for release them.

    Background Recently, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) scientific production is growing, but transgender (TG) people is less considered in the LGBT-related research, highlighting the lack of representative data on this neglected population. To assess the current status of scientific production on TG population, a bibliometric study was performed using the articles on TG people deposited in five databases, including PubMed/Medline, Scopus, Science Citation Index (SCI), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) and Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS). The PubMed/Medline search retrieved 2370 documents, which represented 0.008% of all articles recorded in Medline. The Scopus search identified 4974 articles. At SCI, 2863 articles were identified. A search of the SciELO database identified 39 articles, whereas the LILACS search identified 44 articles. Most papers were from the US (57.59%), followed by Canada (5.15%), the UK (4.42%), Australia (3.19%), The Netherlands (2.46%) and Peru (1.83%). These six countries accounted for 74.6% of all scientific output. The findings indicate that the TG-related research is low, especially in low-income developing countries, where stigma and discrimination are common. More awareness, knowledge, and sensitivity in healthcare communities are needed to eliminate barriers in health attention and research in this population.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo identificar o nível de alinhamento das dimensões da informação entre dois elos da cadeia de suprimentos, a indústria de medicamentos e as farmácias e drogarias segundo a abordagem da gestão da cadeia de suprimentos. Para tanto, foi utilizada uma amostra de 85 empresas, sendo 51 delas varejistas de farmácias e drogarias e 34 fabricantes de medicamentos, localizadas na região metropolitana da cidade de São Paulo, SP. A pesquisa é de natureza exploratória descritiva, com aporte quantitativo, tendo os dados sidos coletados por meio de um questionário estruturado com questões fechadas. Os resultados evidenciaram que ocorre o alinhamento em padrões pouco significativos entre as dimensões da informação quando comparados os dados informacionais desses dois elos pesquisados. Como essa evidência contrasta com a literatura que defende que a gestão da cadeia de suprimentos deve apresentar elevado alinhamento estratégico das informações com seus parceiros, foram formuladas algumas hipóteses sobre essa constatação.

    Full Text Available Neste artigo é realizado um estudo sobre o comportamento dos clientes de uma drogaria, na situação de não haver encontrado o produto desejado. O objetivo deste estudo é avaliar o comportamento dos clientes, considerando a importância dos consumidores como elo final da cadeia de suprimentos de um setor. O comportamento de compra dos consumidores finais afeta decisivamente o gerenciamento da cadeia de suprimentos, uma vez que influencia a tomada de decisões das várias empresas da cadeia. Conhecer efetivamente o comportamento dos vários elos da cadeia, incluindo o consumidor final, traz inúmeras vantagens, entre elas maior compreensão de interligações especialmente significativas na cadeia, melhor gestão da capacidade produtiva, política de estocagem mais eficiente e facilidade para focalizar uma perspectiva de longo prazo. Um mapeamento das associações das possíveis decisões comportamentais dos clientes a suas características individuais foi obtido por meio da técnica de análise de correspondência múltipla. Essa análise permitiu maior compreensão de aspectos subjacentes ao comportamento dos clientes da drogaria que foi objeto de estudo deste trabalho.

    A systematic review of scientific production on Prison Health was conducted, seeking to verify how the subject matter has been dealt with, establishing which is the most exploited focus and identifying possible gaps. The search was carried out in the Virtual Health Library. 1160 articles were located: 1104 on MEDLINE, 19 on LILACS and 37 on SciELO, published from 1993 to 2010. As MEDLINE and LILACS do not show the entire articles, the places, dates and languages of the texts were charted. In-depth analysis was restricted to works which were shown in their entirety and free of charge hosted on SciELO. It revealed that scientific production is present all over the world with a predominantly quantitative approach. It focuses on identifying the socio-demographic profile and health conditions of prisoners, the incidence of tuberculosis, Human Immunodeficiency and Hepatitis C virus infections. There is a predominance of studies carried out with male prisoners, in comparison with the female sex. It is clear that prisoner health is a public health problem on the rise, which demands research that can orient health policies and strategies.

    Full Text Available Cardiology has been and is a very significant fraction of the Brazilian contribution to science. In older days, the most significant part of this work was directed to foreign periodicals, but the quasi-simultaneous emergence of SciELO and PUBMED has ordained a redirection of much of this work to Brazilian periodicals. We here survey some of this more recent contribution for the benefit of readers of Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Cardiovascular. This is offered as an update. Articles on the general themes of Cardiology and Pneumology published by four ISI Indexed Brazilian journals not specializing in cardiology are re-visited, after a search through 10 journals.A Cardiologia foi, e continua sendo, responsável por uma fracção muito significativa da contribuição brasileira para a ciência. No passado, os trabalhos mais importantes eram direcionados para periódicos estrangeiros, mas o surgimento quase simultâneo do SciELO e PUBMED facilitou um redirecionamento de grande parte desses trabalhos a periódicos brasileiros. Neste artigo, examinamos algumas das contribuições mais recentes em benefício aos leitores da Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Cardiovascular. Esta discussão é oferecida como uma atualização. Artigos sobre os temas gerais da cardiologia e pneumologia publicados por quatro revistas brasileiras indexadas no ISI - não especializadas em cardiologia - são revistos.

    AlGaN multiple quantum well laser heterostructures for emission around 240 nm have been grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy on epitaxially laterally overgrown (ELO) AlN/sapphire templates. The edge emitting laser structures showed optically pumped lasing with threshold power densities in the range of 2 MW cm‑2. The offcut angle of the sapphire substrates as well as the number and the width of the quantum wells were varied while keeping the total thickness of the gain region constant. A larger offcut angle of 0.2° leads to step bunching on the surface as well as Ga accumulation at the steps, but also to an increased inclination of threading dislocations and coalescence boundaries resulting in a reduced dislocation density and thus a reduced laser threshold in comparison to lasers grown on ELO with an offcut of 0.1°. For low losses, samples with fewer QWs exhibited a lower lasing threshold due to a reduced transparency pump power density while for high losses, caused by a higher threading dislocation density, the quadruple quantum well was favorable due to its higher maximum gain.

Para tal, foi conduzido estudo exploratório em dois estágios: referindo-se à condução de entrevistas a distância com gestores da área de suprimentos (junto a seis empresas, seguidas de entrevistas presenciais (em duas empresas selecionadas da amostra inicial. Independentemente do porte ou segmento de atuação, o estudo evidencia a busca por parte do elo processador de distribuir seus produtos por meio da combinação de dois formatos de varejo (grande e pequeno/médio com, ao menos, mais um canal, com tendência positiva ao emprego de formatos alternativos, entre os quais o marketing direto. Corroborando a premissa central do estudo, a percepção dos entrevistados é que a gestão de múltiplos canais revela-se estratégica para o elo processador ao permitir atenuar o maior poder comparativo do grande varejo, dada a possibilidade de maior cobertura de mercado, customização nas vendas e melhor atendimento dos anseios dos consumidores.

Gerður er samanburður á helstu einkennum þessarar stefnumótunar og þeirri stefnumótun sem átti sér stað í aðdraganda að sameiningu sjúkrahúsanna í Reykjavík á tíunda áratugnum. Markmiðið er að auka skilning á því hvernig opinber stefnumótun gengur almennt fyrir sig og hvernig slíkur skilningur getur varpað ljósi á áhrif stefnunnar. Jafnframt er hugmyndin að koma fram með nýtt sjónarhorn inn í umræðuna um stefnumótun stjórnvalda í málefnum lesblindra. Niðurstöður rannsóknarinnar gefa til kynna að niðurstaða stefnumótunar í málefnum lesblindra, líkt og með sameiningu sjúkrahúsanna í Reykjavík, sé afleiðing ferlis sem einkennist af stefnureki í stað yfirlýstrar stefnumörkunar. Ástæðuna má rekja til ríkjandi stefnu stjórnvalda um valddreifingu á tíunda áratugnum, sem leiddi til enn frekari sundrungar innan sérfræðingasamfélagsins og ýtti undir markaðsvæðingu á sérfræðiþjónustu fyrir nemendur með lesblindu. Þar sem sérstök áhersla var lögð á að valddreifa myndaðist ekki sameiginlegur skilningur innan málaflokksins og þar af leiðandi byggðist ekki upp svokallaður "krítískur massi" af þeirri reynslu og sérfræðiþekkingu sem þarf að vera fyrir hendi til þess að vísindalegar rannsóknir og þróun geti með áhrifaríkum hætti mótað gagnreynda þekkingu sem undirstöðu stefnumarkandi ákvarðana í málefnum lesblindra.

    Full Text Available The idea of development gained hegemonic status in the middle of the 20th century as a way of understanding the relationship between different parts of the world. Even though debated how development would best be achieved, the idea as such was generally not critically assessed. Development institutions were seen as objective institutions with the technological knowledge necessary to move one society to the next level of development. The collection of data of these institutions in the so-called underdeveloped parts of the world involved the most intimate aspects of societies,and gave the idea of development content and meaning. The article looks at the origin of Icelandic development aid and aims at contextualizing it within international ideas of aid. The discussion starts with overview of historical appearance of international development globally and its hegemonic position. It focuses then on how the idea of development takes shape in an Icelandic context at a particular period and how it was shaped by international discourses, as is for example reflected in increased pressure on the Icelandic government to initiate an aid institution. The establishment of Iceland’s first governmental institutions focusing on aid in 1971 reflects still little interest by the Icelandic government at that time in international development. The article also shows how these international discourses become entangled with Icelandic nationalism,and thus the emphasis that the Icelandic nation-state would be engaged in international development.Hugtakið vinnustaðamenning hefur verið mikið til umræðu síðustu áratugi innan stjórnunar- og skipulagsfræða.

    Full Text Available This study aimed to review published literature concerning the major changes that occur in the respiratory system after stroke, and also the impact of respiratory muscle training in these patients. The literature search was conducted through electronic databases (PubMed, SciELO and Pedro in Portuguese and English languages on themes related to changes in the respiratory system and methods of assessment and rehabilitation of respiratory muscle strength in individuals affected by stroke. There is scientific evidence that individuals affected by stroke may show decreased inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength. Studies suggest that respiratory muscle training through threshold load can bring benefits by improving respiratory function and respiratory muscle strength. However, more studies should be conducted to deepen the knowledge about the benefits and long-term effects of pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with stroke.

  3. Testemunhas do futuro: sobre filosofia, teologia e messianismo em Walter Benjamin

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pedro Lucas Dulci

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho procura investigar se existe algum elo de união que perpassa a crítica à civilização empreendida pelo filósofo alemão Walter Benjamin, bem como algo que passa necessariamente pela sua rejeição ao capitalismo, impulsionada tanto pelo romantismo alemão, pelo marxismo libertário quando pelo messianismo judaico. Em meio a um aparente aglomerado filosófico, nossa pergunta metodológica indaga-se pela possibilidade de falar de um fio condutor no pensamento do filósofo das inúmeras passagens e anotações fragmentadas? A hipótese que sustentaremos no presente trabalho é que o messianismo de Benjamin percorre toda a sua obra, como uma corrente elétrica que alimenta e ilumina todos os seus escritos.

    This review study aimed to verify how studies conducted in Brazil have related infant mortality to prenatal care and to present contributions of the clinic in the light of Canguilhem and Foucault for qualification of the care. An integrative literature review was conducted from searches in the databases SciELO, LILACS, MEDLINE and BDENF for the period 2000 to 2009. The relationship between infant mortality and prenatal care is related to the insufficient number of consultations or to the quality of the care provided. Even when the number of and routine consultations in the prenatal care were adequate, avoidable deaths were present. For the qualification of prenatal care, it is suggested that the clinical knowledge and other elements that comprise the process of human living are considered, in order that the clinical view is enlarged and articulated to the technologies available in the health system and, together, they are able to contribute to the reduction of infant mortality in Brazil.

    Nurses' perceptions of nursing error could affect their professional practice. The aim of the study was to explore critical care nurses' perceptions of nursing error and its causes. This was a qualitative study in which 12 critical care nurses were recruited through purposive sampling. The data were collected via in-depth interviews and analyzed through qualitative content analysis method (Elo & Kyngäs, 2008). Nursing error was deemed as an unavoidable issue which consisted of the lack of congruence with standards, doing extra-nursing tasks and giving care against the agreed-upon routines. Five categories emerged as the causes of error: individual reasons, work pressure, caring blindly, the uniqueness of caring environment and the lack of coordination among health care team members. The perception of nursing error is sort of unique; hence, managers should provide support for critical care nurses and pave the way for the prevention of errors.

  11. Maternal behavioral factors influencing postpartum weight retention. Clinical and metabolic implications

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mariana A. Falivene

    Full Text Available Abstract Objectives: to describe some factors of maternal behavior such as breastfeeding, diet, physical activity, sleep and clinical-metabolic disorders associated with retention and/or weight gain during postpartum. Methods: specific articles on the subject were searched in LILACS, MEDLINE/PubMed and SciELO databases. Results: the literature review suggests that breastfeeding or physical activity alone are not enough to return to the pre-pregnancy weight, if they are not combined with restrictions of energy intake. Reduced sleep affects both eating habits and activity patterns resulting in lower energy expenditure, in addition to altering the glycemic metabolism. Conclusions: maternal obesity increases the risk of metabolic syndrome. Interventions during postpartum are critical for maternal health and could be the key in reducing the risk of transgenerational maternal/childhood obesity.

The nurse specialist still has a barely visible role, but his/her interventions are critical in these patients rehabilitation. Conclusions: rehabilitation is essential to avoid the consequences of poststroke dysphagia. The rehabilitation process must go through a multidisciplinary team of which nurses are an integral and essential part.

  12. A psychometric analysis of chess expertise.

    Science.gov (United States)

    van der Maas, Han L J; Wagenmakers, Eric-Jan

    2005-01-01

    This study introduces the Amsterdam Chess Test (ACT). The ACT measures chess playing proficiency through 5 tasks: a choose-a-move task (comprising two parallel tests), a motivation questionnaire, a predict-a-move task, a verbal knowledge questionnaire, and a recall task. The validity of these tasks was established using external criteria based on the Elo chess rating system. Results from a representative sample of active chess players showed that the ACT is a very reliable test for chess expertise and that ACT has high predictive validity. Several hypotheses about the relationships between chess expertise, chess knowledge, motivation, and memory were tested. Incorporating response latencies in test scores is shown to lead to an increase in criterion validity, particularly for easy items.

    Monteiro, Simone; Villela, Wilza Vieira; Knauth, Daniela

    2012-01-01

    Given the implications of stigma for HIV/AIDS prevention and control of the epidemic, as emphasized by UNAIDS, this study analyzes the Brazilian academic production on health, AIDS, stigma, and discrimination, available in the SciELO database from 2005 to 2010. Brazilian research on the theme is modest as compared to the international literature, but the studies follow the same trend of focusing on individual experiences of discrimination as opposed to analysis of stigma and discrimination as social processes associated with power relations and domination (macro-social structures) and the characteristics of individuals and social groups that shape social interactions. The current study seeks to analyze the reasons for the scarcity of studies on the social perspective towards stigma and discrimination in the field of public health and the implications for the development of proposals to deal with HIV/AIDS-related discrimination.

    Full Text Available Ao reatar o elo mais profundo entre a psicologia e a filosofia, Merleau-Ponty revisita a obra clínica de Kurt Goldstein (1878-1965, reavivando, em especial, seu contributo fenomenológico. As noções de "estrutura" (Gestalt e "sentido" são, aqui, agenciadas quanto a uma compreensão mais integral do comportamento, da vida e da linguagem; alcance que Goldstein obtém, ao estudar os diferentes distúrbios linguísticos, na contramão das teorias intelectualistas e empiristas, essencialmente causais. Ao retomar esse inventário crítico, Merleau-Ponty atenta para o caráter original, dinâmico e, sobretudo, ontológico dessa proposta.

    To systematize results of prospective cohort studies on multiple risk factors for falls in the elderly and to assess their methodological quality. Systematic review of epidemiological studies from Medline, SciELO and Lilacs database. We included prospective cohort studies with samples of more than 100 subjects of both sexes, older than 64 years, and living either in the community or a nursing home. Of 726 studied identified, 15 met the inclusion criteria of being published between 1988 and 2005. The methodology of the studies varied. The main factors associated with increased risk of falls include: previous falls, altered gait, functional impairment, cognitive impairment, psychotropic medication use and excessive physical activity. Despite contradictory findings, being a woman at an advanced age may also be a predictor of falls. Methodological limitations were identified in prospective cohort studies on falls. There is a need for further studies on extrinsic determinants, including evaluator blinding and closer monitoring during follow-up with reduced time of recall.

    Due to high launch costs, weight reduction is a key driver for the development of new solar cell technologies suitable for space applications. This project is developing a unique triple-junction inverted metamorphic multijunction (IMM) technology that enables the manufacture of very lightweight, low-cost InGaAsP-based multijunction solar cells. This IMM technology consists of indium (In) and phosphorous (P) solar cell active materials, which are designed to improve the radiation-resistant properties of the triple-junction solar cell while maintaining high efficiency. The intrinsic radiation hardness of InP materials makes them of great interest for building solar cells suitable for deployment in harsh radiation environments, such as medium Earth orbit and missions to the outer planets. NASA Glenn's recently developed epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process also will be applied to this new structure, which will enable the fabrication of the IMM structure without the substrate.

    Fructose intake has increased considerably in recent years, especially in the form high fructose corn syrup, due its high sweetening power. Several studies have associated high intake of fructose to metabolic alterations, as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and fructose malabsorption, among other pathologies. This review aims to update about the effect of high intake of fructose in the liver and intestine, mainly associated with processed foods with added fructose. An updated literature search was conducted using databases (Pubmed, Scopus and SciELO), selecting articles published after the year 2000, resulting from the keywords "fructose intake, fructose intolerance, nonalcoholic fatty liver and fructose, fructose malabsorption" Of 735 articles initially retrieved, 78 met the inclusion criteria. Fructose consumption has increased in recent decades, especially due to increased consumption of sweetened beverages and processed foods with added fructose. High fructose intake has been associated to pathologies as NAFLD and fructose malabsorption. Copyright AULA MEDICA EDICIONES 2014. Published by AULA MEDICA. All rights reserved.

    2001-02-01

    Medical journals published in non-English languages face a handicap: their worldwide readership and citation are reduced in comparison to journals published in English. This handicap is worse for small journals edited in developing countries, regardless of whether they publish original research articles including abstracts in English. To facilitate the international diffusion of selected Chilean scientific journals, the "Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica" enforced the program "SciELO Chile" with a web site in Internet (www.scielo.cl) including the full text of articles published in recent issues. Revista Médica de Chile is the first Chilean medical journal that appears in this web site, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine, Washington D.C. We expect that this web site will give a favorable input to authors of articles published in our journal.
