    Full Text Available Abstract Background Evaluations of interventions to improve implementation of guidelines have failed to produce a clear pattern of results favouring a particular method. While implementation depends on clinicians and managers changing a variety of behaviours, psychological theories of behaviour and behaviour change are seldom used to try to understand difficulties in implementation or to develop interventions to overcome them. Objectives This study applied psychological theory to examine explanations for difficulties in implementation. It used a theoretical framework derived from an interdisciplinary consensus exercise to code interviews across 11 theoretical domains. The focus of the study was a National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence's Schizophrenia guideline recommendation that family intervention should be offered to the families of people with schizophrenia. Methods Participants were recruited from community mental health teams from three United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS Trusts; 20 members (social workers, nurses, team managers, psychologists, and psychiatrists participated. Semi-structured interviews were audio-taped and transcribed. Interview questions were based on the theoretical domains and addressed respondents' knowledge, attitudes and opinions regarding the guideline. Two researchers independently coded the transcript segments from each interview that were related to each theoretical domain. A score of 1 indicated that the transcript segments relating to the domain did not appear to contain description of difficulties in implementation of the family therapy guidelines; similarly a score of 0.5 indicated possible difficulties and a score of 0 indicated definite difficulties. Results Coding respondents' answers to questions related to the three domains 'beliefs about consequences,' 'social/professional role and identity,' and 'motivation' produced the three highest total scores indicating that factors relating

    To assess variation in and determinants of rheumatologist guideline adherence in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), in daily practice. In this retrospective observational study, guideline adherence in the first year of treatment was assessed for 7 predefined parameters on diagnostics, treatment and follow-up in all adult patients with RA with a first outpatient clinic visit at the study centre, from September 2009 to March 2011. Variation in guideline adherence was assessed on parameter and rheumatologist level. Determinants for guideline adherence were assessed in patients (demographic characteristics, rheumatoid factor (RF) and/or anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (aCCP) positivity, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, erosive disease, comorbidity and the number of available disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) treatment options) and rheumatologists (demographic and practice characteristics, guideline knowledge and agreement, outcome expectancy, cognitive bias, thinking style, numeracy and personality). A total of 994 visits in 137 patients with RA were reviewed. Variation in guideline adherence among parameters was present (adherence between 21% and 72%), with referral to the physician assistant as lowest scoring and referral to a specialised nurse as highest scoring parameter. Variation in guideline adherence among rheumatologists was also present (adherence between 22% and 100%). Patient sex, the number of DMARD options, presence of erosions, comorbidity, RF/aCCP positivity, type of patient and the rheumatologists' scientific education status were associated with adherence to 1 or more guideline parameters. Guideline adherence varied considerably among the guideline parameters and rheumatologists, showing that there is room for improvement. Guideline adherence in our sample was related to several patient and rheumatologist determinants.

  5. IND - THE IND DECISION TREE PACKAGE

    Science.gov (United States)

    Buntine, W.

    1994-01-01

    A common approach to supervised classification and prediction in artificial intelligence and statistical pattern recognition is the use of decision trees. A tree is "grown" from data using a recursive partitioning algorithm to create a tree which has good prediction of classes on new data. Standard algorithms are CART (by Breiman Friedman, Olshen and Stone) and ID3 and its successor C4 (by Quinlan). As well as reimplementing parts of these algorithms and offering experimental control suites, IND also introduces Bayesian and MML methods and more sophisticated search in growing trees. These produce more accurate class probability estimates that are important in applications like diagnosis. IND is applicable to most data sets consisting of independent instances, each described by a fixed length vector of attribute values. An attribute value may be a number, one of a set of attribute specific symbols, or it may be omitted. One of the attributes is delegated the "target" and IND grows trees to predict the target. Prediction can then be done on new data or the decision tree printed out for inspection. IND provides a range of features and styles with convenience for the casual user as well as fine-tuning for the advanced user or those interested in research. IND can be operated in a CART-like mode (but without regression trees, surrogate splits or multivariate splits), and in a mode like the early version of C4. Advanced features allow more extensive search, interactive control and display of tree growing, and Bayesian and MML algorithms for tree pruning and smoothing. These often produce more accurate class probability estimates at the leaves. IND also comes with a comprehensive experimental control suite. IND consists of four basic kinds of routines: data manipulation routines, tree generation routines, tree testing routines, and tree display routines. The data manipulation routines are used to partition a single large data set into smaller training and test sets. The

    Jensen, Sisse Siggaard

    2006-01-01

    This paper proposes the notion of activity-systems to denote a virtual frame of activity that requires mutually coordinated action. The underlying assumption is that such framings may support the informal learning and reflective practices of actors, and especially so, when they are provoking...... and challenging. It is suggested that the prevailing ‘traditions’ of collaborative learning and knowledge sharing need to be challenged and complemented, if we are to be able to support the variety and the diversity in the repertoires of virtual learning activities. In order to conceptualize such activity......-systems, the paper introduces the designing strategy referred to as virtual exploratories. Some of the advanced virtual worlds may inspire the design of such provoking and challenging virtual exploratories, and especially the Massively Multi-User Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGS). However, if we have to learn from...

    Electronic rating scales represent an important resource for standardized data collection. However, the ability to exploit reasoning on rating scale data is still limited. The objective of this work is to facilitate the integration of the semantics required to automatically interpret collections of standardized clinical data. We developed an electronic prototype for the Scale of the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA), broadly used in neurology. In order to address the modeling challenges of the SARA, we propose to combine the best performances from OpenEHR clinical archetypes, guidelines and ontologies. A scaled-down version of the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) was built, extracting the terms that describe the SARA tests from free-text sources. This version of the HPO was then used as backbone to normalize the content of the SARA through clinical archetypes. The knowledge required to exploit reasoning on the SARA data was modeled as separate information-processing units interconnected via the defined archetypes. Each unit used the most appropriate technology to formally represent the required knowledge. Based on this approach, we implemented a prototype named SARA Management System, to be used for both the assessment of cerebellar syndrome and the production of a clinical synopsis. For validation purposes, we used recorded SARA data from 28 anonymous subjects affected by Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 36 (SCA36). When comparing the performance of our prototype with that of two independent experts, weighted kappa scores ranged from 0.62 to 0.86. The combination of archetypes, phenotype ontologies and electronic information-processing rules can be used to automate the extraction of relevant clinical knowledge from plain scores of rating scales. Our results reveal a substantial degree of agreement between the results achieved by an ontology-aware system and the human experts.

    Full Text Available Resumen Objetivo: describir la situación actual de los componentes de salud en los planes integrales de vida de cuatro organizaciones indígenas del departamento del Vaupés, región amazónica de Colombia. Metodología: búsqueda, recuperación, lectura crítica y análisis de contenido de los planes integrales de vida de cuatro organizaciones indígenas del departamento del Vaupés. Comparación con planes de desarrollo territorial de las entidades vigentes – municipio y departamento. Resultados: los planes integrales de vida y los planes de desarrollo territorial no desarrollan los componentes de salud de forma estratégica. Se presentan como enunciados en distintos momentos de los Planes, pero sin lograr la concreción necesaria para llevar a cabo su seguimiento y evaluación. Discusión: existen falencias en los procesos de construcción del componente salud en los instrumentos de planeación de la institucionalidad y las organizaciones indígenas. Mientras esto persista, será imposible llevar a la realidad las intervenciones necesarias para la mejoría de la situación de salud de los grupos y pueblos étnicos indígenas. Es necesaria una acción decidida y articulada de la institucionalidad, la academia y el sector no gubernamental que favorezca estos procesos./ Abstract Objective: to describe the current state of the health-related components of the comprehensive life development plans of four indigenous organizations of the Vaupés department, in the Amazon region of Colombia.

    Full Text Available A pesar de las reiteradas manifestaciones y instrucciones al respecto del valor de las lenguas indígenas y sobre la importancia de la enseñanza en lengua materna, sea en documentos oficiales del gobierno brasileño, sea en artículos, declaraciones y propuestas firmadas por maestros indígenas o por pesquisadores no indígenas, el hecho es que en la mayor parte de los programas educacionales en comunidades indígenas de Brasil el espacio destinado a la lengua autóctona es muy semejante a lo que acostumbramos encontrar para una lengua extranjera en la escuela nacional. Como a menudo los maestros indígenas demuestran tener convicción en la necesidad de valorizar y fortalecer sus lenguas propias, y son - ellos mismos - hablantes nativos de sus lenguas, las preguntas que se plantean son: ¿Por cuales razones las escuelas indígenas siguen restringiendo el espacio de la lengua autóctona? ¿Es posible que los maestros indígenas de hecho estén creyentes de las potencialidades y en el futuro de su lengua materna? Y, por fin, ¿Serán las presiones de la burocracia o de maestros no-indígenas en la escuela indígena lo que impide la experimentación de programas auténticamente bilingües?.Despite the repeated demonstrations and instructions about the value of indigenous languages and the importance of education in mother tongue, whether in official documents of the Brazilian government, whether in articles, statements and proposals signed by indigenous teachers or non-indigenous researchers, the fact is that in the most educational programs in indigenous communities in Brazil the space for the native language is very similar to that usually found for a foreign language in the national school. As indigenous teachers often prove to have belief in the need to value and strengthen their own languages, and are - themselves - native speakers of that, the questions that arise are: Why reasons indigenous schools continue to restrict the space of the

The purpose of this article is to summarize these guidelines with reference to the strength of evidence. All guidelines endorse an initial evaluation to exclude concomitant infection, imaging with a non-contrast computed tomography scan, and consideration of medical expulsive therapy or surgical intervention depending on stone size and location. Recommends for metabolic evaluation vary by guideline, but all endorse increasing fluid intake to reduce the risk of recurrence. © 2015 The Authors BJU International © 2015 BJU International Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Sparse principal component analysis is a very active research area in the last decade. It produces component loadings with many zero entries which facilitates their interpretation and helps avoid redundant variables. The classic factor analysis is another popular dimension reduction technique which shares similar interpretation problems and could greatly benefit from sparse solutions. Unfortunately, there are very few works considering sparse versions of the classic factor analysis. Our goal is to contribute further in this direction. We revisit the most popular procedures for exploratory factor analysis, maximum likelihood and least squares. Sparse factor loadings are obtained for them by, first, adopting a special reparameterization and, second, by introducing additional [Formula: see text]-norm penalties into the standard factor analysis problems. As a result, we propose sparse versions of the major factor analysis procedures. We illustrate the developed algorithms on well-known psychometric problems. Our sparse solutions are critically compared to ones obtained by other existing methods.

    Finger, J.T.; Jacobson, R.D.

    1997-01-01

    During July-November, 1995, Sandia National Laboratories, in cooperation with CE Exploration, drilled a 5,360 foot exploratory slimhole (3.85 inches diameter) in the Newberry Known Geothermal Resource Area (KGRA) near Bend, Oregon. This well was part of Sandia`s program to evaluate slimholes as a geothermal exploration tool. During and after drilling the authors performed numerous temperature logs, and at the completion of drilling attempted to perform injection tests. In addition to these measurements, the well`s data set includes: over 4,000 feet of continuous core (with detailed log); daily drilling reports from Sandia and from drilling contractor personnel; daily drilling fluid record; and comparative data from other wells drilled in the Newberry KGRA.

    Jelsøe, Erling

    2015-01-01

    Dietary guidelines are issued regularly in most developed countries. In almost all cases they are concerned solely with the nutritional aspects of food and eating and are based on an understanding of food exclusively as a source of nutrients. In recent years, however, a growing number of proposals...... in a number of countries have addressed the issue of making dietary guidelines that integrate health and sustainability, but in all cases they have been met with different kinds of resistance. This article reviews the development towards an integrated understanding of health and sustainability in relation...... to food and eating and the emergence of proposals for integrated guidelines. It explores the conflicts and controversies that have arisen in the wake of the various proposals and identifies a number of different types of conflicts. These relate to conflicts of interests between the various actors involved...

  20. Exploratory Bi-factor Analysis

    OpenAIRE

    Jennrich, Robert I.; Bentler, Peter M.

    2011-01-01

    Bi-factor analysis is a form of confirmatory factor analysis originally introduced by Holzinger. The bi-factor model has a general factor and a number of group factors. The purpose of this paper is to introduce an exploratory form of bi-factor analysis. An advantage of using exploratory bi-factor analysis is that one need not provide a specific bi-factor model a priori. The result of an exploratory bi-factor analysis, however, can be used as an aid in defining a specific bi-factor model. Our ...

    1999-04-01

    The guideline document establishes a general overview of the main components of climate change mitigation assessment. This includes an outline of key economic concepts, scenario structure, common assumptions, modelling tools and country study assumptions. The guidelines are supported by Handbook Reports that contain more detailed specifications of calculation standards, input assumptions and available tools. The major objectives of the project have been provided a methodology, an implementing framework and a reporting system which countries can follow in meeting their future reporting obligations under the FCCC and for GEF enabling activities. The project builds upon the methodology development and application in the UNEP National Abatement Coasting Studies (UNEP, 1994a). The various elements provide countries with a road map for conducting climate change mitigation studies and submitting national reports as required by the FCCC. (au) 121 refs.

    1992-03-01

    The Exploratory Studies Group is dedicated to advanced investigation of accelerators and radiation, primarily in the area of charged-particle beams and photon beams. Its primary mission is to explore the next steps in the development of particle accelerators and storage rings, which are important both for high-energy physics and for the wide range of disciplines now turning to synchrotron-radiation sources and free-electron lasers. Our research is therefore deeply committed to LBL`s institutional goal of becoming a center for the generation and use of coherent and incoherent electromagnetic radiation of exceptional brightness, as well as for generic research on the future development of accelerators. A significant fraction of our effort is dedicated to general accelerator-physics research for facilities on the immediate horizon, but a vital part of our activities comprises research into exotic possibilities for charged-particle production, accumulation, acceleration, and storage. During this report period, we were proncipally involved in four general areas of study: Accelerator-physics research for the Advanced Light Source, the 1-2 GeV synchrotron radiation source now under construction at LBL. In collaboration with the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, both the conceptual and the detailed design of PEP-II, an energy-asymmetric electron-positron collider, based on the PEP ring at SLAC and designed to serve as a B-meson factory. Studies of ultraviolet and infrared free-electron lasers based on linear accelerators and storage rings, in particular the conceptual design of an infrared free-electron laser for the proposed Chemical Dynamics Research Laboratory at LBL. Generic high-energy accelerator-physics and photon-beam research directed far into the future to envision facilities that would employ new techniques of particle-beam acceleration and storage and photon-beam generation.

    Exploratory data analysis (EDA) was conceived at a time when computers were not widely used, and thus computational ability was rather limited. As computational sophistication has increased, EDA has become an even more powerful process for visualizing and summarizing data before making model assumptions to generate hypotheses, encompassing larger and more complex data sets. There are many resources for those interested in the theory of EDA, but this is the first book to use MATLAB to illustrate the computational aspects of this discipline.Exploratory Data Analysis with MATLAB presents the meth

    Full Text Available A qualidade de processos industriais farmacêuticos e como obtê-la é um tema de grande interesse na indústria farmacêutica, principalmente no que diz respeito a sua padronização. Com a normatização dos guias de boas práticas farmacêuticas e a padronização das práticas, passou a ocorrer uma maior preocupação, inclusive governamental, com o que seria qualidade e como alcançá-la. O objetivo deste trabalho foi reunir os principais guias de referência e as práticas utilizadas como indicadores de qualidade na indústria farmacêutica. Para tanto, foram selecionados 21 trabalhos obtidos por meio de pesquisa em bancos de dados disponíveis online, além de guias de referência de organizações internacionais, como Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS, Food and Drug Administration (FDA e International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH. Após a organização e a leitura do material selecionado, foram descritas algumas práticas de qualidade atualmente utilizadas na indústria farmacêutica: gestão de risco, quality by design, ações corretivas e preventivas, lean manufacturing, sistema de qualidade total e séries ISO. Apesar de existir uma regulamentação bastante completa e atual acerca de indicadores e práticas de qualidade em indústria farmacêutica, as publicações não relatam informações específicas e experiências práticas da implementação desses sistemas de qualidade, dificultando assim, exemplificar melhor como essas estratégias influenciam positivamente no gerenciamento das indústrias farmacêuticas.

    Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) virus serotype O Ind2001 lineage within the Middle East-South Asia topotype is the major cause of recent FMD incidences in India. A sub-lineage of Ind2001 caused severe outbreaks in the southern region of the country during 2013 and also reported for the first time from Libya. In this study, we conducted a detailed evolutionary analysis of Ind2001 lineage. Phylogenetic analysis of Ind2001 lineage based on maximum likelihood method revealed two major splits and three sub-lineages. The mean nucleotide substitution rate for this lineage was calculated to be 6.338×10(-3)substitutions/site/year (s/s/y), which is similar to those of PanAsian sub-lineages. Evolutionary time scale analysis indicated that the Ind2001 lineage might have originated in 1989. The sub-lineage Ind2001d that caused 2013 outbreaks seems to be relatively more divergent genetically from other Ind2001 sub-lineages. Seven codons in the VP1 region of Ind2001 were found to be under positive selection. Four out of 24 recent Ind2001 strains tested in 2D-MNT had antigenic relationship value of <0.3 with the serotype O vaccine strain indicating intra-epidemic antigenic diversity. Amino acid substitutions found in these minor variants with reference to antigenic diversity have been discussed. The dominance of antigenically homologous strains indicates absence of vaccine immunity in the majority of the affected hosts. Taken together, the evolution of Ind2001 lineage deviates from the strict molecular clock and a typical lineage evolutionary dynamics characterized by periodic emergence and re-emergence of Ind2001 and PanAsia lineage have been observed in respect of serotype O.

    This paper describes the vision of a European Exploratory for economics and finance using an interdisciplinary consortium of economists, natural scientists, computer scientists and engineers, who will combine their expertise to address the enormous challenges of the 21st century. This Academic Public facility is intended for economic modelling, investigating all aspects of risk and stability, improving financial technology, and evaluating proposed regulatory and taxation changes. The European Exploratory for economics and finance will be constituted as a network of infrastructure, observatories, data repositories, services and facilities and will foster the creation of a new cross-disciplinary research community of social scientists, complexity scientists and computing (ICT) scientists to collaborate in investigating major issues in economics and finance. It is also considered a cradle for training and collaboration with the private sector to spur spin-offs and job creations in Europe in the finance and economic sectors. The Exploratory will allow Social Scientists and Regulators as well as Policy Makers and the private sector to conduct realistic investigations with real economic, financial and social data. The Exploratory will (i) continuously monitor and evaluate the status of the economies of countries in their various components, (ii) use, extend and develop a large variety of methods including data mining, process mining, computational and artificial intelligence and every other computer and complex science techniques coupled with economic theory and econometric, and (iii) provide the framework and infrastructure to perform what-if analysis, scenario evaluations and computational, laboratory, field and web experiments to inform decision makers and help develop innovative policy, market and regulation designs.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Analisar as taxas e algumas características da mortalidade por suicídio entre indígenas e não indígenas no Amazonas. MÉTODO: Estudo de coorte retrospectiva, em que os dados de óbito foram obtidos no Sistema de Informações sobre Mortalidade e os populacionais no Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística. Foram utilizados todos os registros de suicídio do período de 2006-2010 e a interpolação geométrica anual para a estimação das subpopulações. RESULTADOS: Ocorreram 688 suicídios no Amazonas, dos quais 19,0% em indígenas. A taxa ajustada de mortalidade por suicídio (TAMS nos indígenas, de 18,4/100 mil, foi 4,4 vezes superior a dos não indígenas. A TAMS em indígenas aumentou 1,6 vez em 2010 em relação a 2006. Nos municípios de Tabatinga e São Gabriel da Cachoeira, as TAMS foram muito altas, 75,8 e 41,9/100 mil, respectivamente. CONCLUSÕES: Evidenciou-se o comportamento desigual das taxas de mortalidade por suicídio entre indígenas e não indígenas, expondo não só sua importância local, como também sua invisibilidade como problema de saúde pública, principalmente entre jovens 15 e 24 anos.

    Full Text Available IndElec is a software addressed to compute a wide range of indices from electoral data, which are intended to analyze both party systems and electoral systems in political studies. Further, IndElec can calculate such indices from electoral data at several levels of aggregation, even when the acronyms of some political parties change across districts. As the amount of information provided by IndElec may be considerable, this software also aids the user in the analysis of electoral data through three capabilities. First, IndElec automatically elaborates preliminary descriptive statistical reports of computed indices. Second, IndElec saves the computed information into text files in data matrix format, which can be directly loaded by any statistical software to facilitate more sophisticated statistical studies. Third, IndElec provides results in several file formats (text, CSV, HTML, R to facilitate their visualization and management by using a wide range of application softwares (word processors, spreadsheets, web browsers, etc.. Finally, a graphical user interface is provided for IndElec to manage calculation processes, but no visualization facility is available in this environment. In fact, both the inputs and outputs for IndElec are arranged in files with the aforementioned formats.

  20. Harvard Catalyst | The Clinical Translational Science Center IND/IDE Consult Service: Providing an IND/IDE Consult Service in a Decentralized Network of Academic Healthcare Centers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winkler, Sabune J.; Bierer, Barbara E.; Wolf, Delia

    2014-01-01

    Abstract The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations require sponsors of clinical investigations involving an investigational drug or device to submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application. Strict adherence to applicable regulations is vital to the success of clinical research. Unlike most major pharmaceutical sponsors, investigator sponsors often do not fully appreciate their regulatory obligations nor have resources to ensure compliance. As a result they can place themselves and their institutions at risk. Nevertheless, investigator‐initiated clinical trials are vital to the further development of innovative drugs, biologics, and medical devices. The IND/IDE Subcommittee under the Regulatory Knowledge and Support Program at Harvard Catalyst, The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center worked in collaboration with Harvard and Harvard affiliated institutions to create and launch an IND/IDE Consult Service in a decentralized network of collaborating Academic Healthcare Centers (AHC). The IND/IDE Consult Service offers expertise, resources, and shared experiences to assist sponsor‐investigators and IRBs in meeting regulatory requirements for conducting and reviewing investigator‐initiated IND/IDE studies. The scope of the services provided by the Harvard Catalyst IND/IDE Consult Service are described, including the specifics of the service, lessons learned, and challenges faced, in a scalable model that builds inter‐institutional capacity.

  8. Observations sur l’indéterminabilité

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Narcis Zărnescu

    2009-06-01

    Full Text Available Pour Aristote, une proposition est vraie si elle correspond à un fait. Pour les Stoïciens, un raisonnement est valide si et seulement s’il est conforme à la forme canonique d’un trope. Mais affirmer cela c’était oublier que la vérité résulte toujours d’un processus de recherche, souvent long et complexe, qui repose sur l’interrogation, le questionnement, bref le dialogue. Alors qu’en logique standard, la proposition excluait toute dimension énonciative pour se réduire à un simple porteur de valeur de vérité, en logique dialogique chaque proposition est véritablement une proposition émanant d’un interlocuteur qui s’engage sur elle par un acte d’assertion. De plus, un tel acte de discours prend place dans un jeu dialogique (dialogspiel entre proposant et opposant. Dès lors, chaque proposition prend sens en fonction de son utilisation opératoire dans le jeu dialogique. On ne pense plus en termes d’axiomes, mais de système opératoire. On a là un développement remarquable du paradigme actionnel inauguré notamment par le Frege des Recherches logiques.Notre intention est donc de démontrer comment en théorie standard des modèles la décision sur la valeur de vérité d’un connecteur ou d’une proposition atomique dans un univers de discours donné reste une décision extra-logique. Dès lors une modélisation adéquate de la dimension dialogique de l’indéterminabilité ou de la véridicité consiste à articuler de façon adéquate validité et vérité, cohérence interne du dialogue et sanction attestée de façon externe. L’indéterminabilité, ainsi que la véridicité, sera le résultat d’un accord dialogique qui suppose au niveau interactionnel que les interlocuteurs reconnaissent leur consistance mutuelle et au niveau transactionnel qu’ils acceptent mutuellement le jugement d’un tiers qui atteste de la vérité des propositions atomiques sur le monde en question.

    Full Text Available L'Inde est un pays riche en ressources énergétiques. En ce qui concerne le pétrole, les réserves prouvées sont déjà abondantes, mais certains pensent qu'il reste un potentiel très important à découvrir, le pays étant un des moins explorés du monde. L'ouverture récente des industries de l'énergie aux capitaux privés et étrangers devrait accélérer le développement de l'exploration, du raffinage et de la pétrochimie. Mais, bien que de nombreux projets aient été approuvés par le gouvernement, la réalisation ne suit pas dans tous les cas, en raison de conditions qui ne sont pas toujours jugées attrayantes par les investisseurs potentiels. Malgré tout, certains pensent que l'Inde sera une puissance égale sinon supérieure à la Chine et qu'elle soutient déjà la comparaison avec les dragons du Sud-Est asiatique. India is a country that is rich in energy resources. Concerning oil, proven reserves are already abundant, but there are some who think that a very large potential remains to be discovered, since the country is one of the least throughly explored in the world. The recent opening up of energy industries to private and foreign capital should speed up the development of exploration, refining and petrochemicals. However, even if numerous projects were to be approved by the Government, actually carrying them out does not always ensue because of conditions that are not always judged to be attractive by potential investors. Despite all this, there are some who think that India will be a power equal to if not greater than China and one that is already upholding the comparison with the Southeast Asian dragons.

Le modèle du cluster géographique et économiques’est imposé progressivement comme outil d’aménagement dans l’ensemble des politiques sectorielles menées par l’État indien et reprises par les États fédérés. La diffusion de cet outil est liée aux succès qui ont fait la renommée de l’Inde dans le secteur des logiciels, aux bénéfices attendus en matière d’innovation, mais aussi à des raisons pratiques et foncières. Cet article présente à travers un prisme géoéconomique les stratégies de développement successives basées sur la création de clusters TIC multi-échelles,en analysant l’exemple précis de l’État du Kerala.India is an emergent superpower which asserts itself through outsourced services, the so-called “IT industry”. Beyond the fact that InfoTech are seen as a trickle-down development engine, it is the cluster which has become gradually a town planning measure in the sectoral policies followed by the central government and the regional states. The diffusion of this spatial model can be explained by the success stories which made the reputation of India and the expected benefits in terms of innovation. This article analyzes the successive strategies of development based on IT clusters through a geographical and economical prism. The role of the scales and of the actors will be emphasized, while resting on the specific instance of the Kerala state.

Ceferino es posicionado como la cristalización idealizada de un plan misionero que buscaba multiplicar la fe católica por medio de vocaciones autóctonas. Los textos biográficos para niños sobre Ceferino Namuncurá, publicados por los Salesianos, construyen a través de la imagen del “infiel converso” un modelo de virtud y santidad. Por medio de un conjunto de textos entre los que se encuentran historias ilustradas, analizaremos en clave de “aboriginalidad”, la construcción y de-construcción de su figura. En el proceso de civilización, esta construcción refuerza o desdibuja a Ceferino como modelo de “virtuosismo” y “santidad”.

Indigenous Anthropologists and the Spectacle of Otherness Abstract In this article I ponder on the access of indigenous students to Brazilian universities. From my own experience as an indigenous anthropologist, I focus on the context in which indigenous students are admitted to graduate programs in anthropology. I analyze the Indians' historical invisibility and the challenges they face to consolidate their roles in academy vis-à-vis the politics of enunciation that are deeply rooted in university practices and in the national imagery about the "Indian." Key Words: Indigenous anthropologists, University Indians, indigenous education, indigenism, interethnic relations.

    Full Text Available A partir de una perspectiva etnográfica del proceso de implementación de un programa de desarrollo en comunidades indígenas, en el presente artículo nos proponemos dejar al descubierto los conflictos emergentes entre la Carta de cooperación firmada por el Estado argentino y el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, en cuanto es, por un lado, expresión de una episteme de la dominación y, por el otro, de una microfísica de la resistencia cotidiana desplegada por el Consejo de Caciques de los Siete Pueblos. El poder de negociación de la organización indígena la constituyó en broker de desarrollo, al implementar los distintos proyectos “a lo indígena”. El análisis de este proceso nos permite reflexionar acerca de las relaciones que pautan a las organizaciones indígenas con el Estado argentino y con los organismos de financiamiento internacional.

  9. Auroville, une cité utopique en Inde

    Full Text Available La communauté « Auroville », vaste cité internationale inaugurée le 28 février 1968 en Inde sur la baie du Bengale, à 10 kilomètres de Pondichéry, est une entreprise utopique et libertaire qui vise à réal iser « l’unité humaine » et une cohabitation harmonieuse et épanouie entre les hommes. Elle est fondée sur l’enseignement de Sri Aurobindo, penseur indien mort en 1950. Si au fi l du temps cette communauté n’a pas obtenu le succès espéré en termes de croissance de population, puisqu’elle compte actuellement 1 700 Aurovilliens, alors qu’elle avait été prévue pour en accueillir 50 000, on constate toutefois une implantation durable de cette entreprise sur le sol indien depuis près de quarante ans maintenant. De nouvelles générations arrivent, de nombreux Indiens locaux candidatent pour être intégrés à la communauté, Auroville est devenu un lieu très connu et touristique en Inde, et est reconnu officiellement par le gouvernement indien comme par l’Unesco. Mais qu’est au fond Auroville ? Groupement ésotérique aux allures de secte pour certains, entreprise néo-colonaliste pour d’autres (en effet i l y a un fort décalage de niveau de vie sur place entre les Occidentaux et les Indiens locaux, vestiges de l’utopie soixante-huitarde ou bien encore entreprise pionnière et espoir de paix et de fraternité internationale pour l’avenir ? Auroville apparaît ainsi sous de multiples facettes qui correspondent aux différentes façons, souvent radicalement opposées, dont elle est perçue. Il convient donc de se pencher avec plus d’attention sur cette entreprise originale pour essayer d’apporter un jugement objectif à son sujet. A cet effet il s’agira tout d’abord de rappeler l’histoire d’Auroville et de ses maîtres à penser, puis de présenter l’organisation de la cité et son évolution, en mettant l’accent sur le caractère novateur des activités qui y sont développées, pour

  12. Sustainability and Risk Disclosure: An Exploratory Study on Sustainability Reports

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available Recent policy changes in sustainability reporting, such as the ones related to the new European Directive on non-financial disclosure (2014/95/EU, the standards issued by the American Sustainability Accounting Standard Board (SASB, the G4 guidelines issued by the Global Sustainability Standard Board (GSSB, and the framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC stress the importance of extending the disclosure of ethical, social, and environmental risks within financial and social-environmental reporting. Institutional pressure has notably increased among organizations, in setting up risk management tools to understand sustainability risks within managerial and reporting practices. Given such institutional pressure, the corporate reaction in providing additional sustainability risk disclosure calls for attention and scrutiny. Therefore, this study aims at addressing such issues from an exploratory perspective. We based our analysis on a sample of large Italian organizations that issued sustainability disclosure in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI, G4 guidelines, and we tested the relationship between their level of risk disclosure and other relevant variables. Consistently with the literature, we found that “experienced” sustainable reporters provide a significant volume of disclosure, and that disclosure quality on risk is positively influenced by their international presence and reporting experience. However, when accounting for specific risk-related areas of disclosure, only a few of them seem to adopt a managerial perspective linking strategy, risk metrics, and disclosure.

    Full Text Available In a recent survey, Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS members indicated that they feel our association should be involved in the production of guidelines (1. There is evidence in the literature that suggests guidelines can have some effect in changing behaviour, although this is variable and modest at best. Certainly, the production of guidelines is not without costs, particularly in time spent by experts in reviewing the literature and producing them. For good reasons, delays frequently occur in their production, often leading to recommendations that may be outdated. People sometimes forget that one of the most important reasons for producing guidelines is to identify questions that require future research.

  14. New worldwide lipid guidelines.

    2015-07-01

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in most countries. Modification of common risk factors such as dyslipidaemia can result in significant reduction of ASCVD incidence in the population and improve clinical outcomes. The purpose of this review is to discuss and compare the latest worldwide lipid guidelines, and to demonstrate the variation in practice in different parts of the world. The lipid guidelines have recently been updated in different countries. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines in the United Kingdom were issued in July 2014, are risk based and are broadly similar to the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association task force guidelines that were published in November 2013. Both these guidelines are in variance with both the Canadian Guidelines and the European Society of Cardiology/European Atherosclerosis Society guidelines 2011, which are target based and have different risk scoring systems, which results in significant variation in practice and increased healthcare costs in certain countries. The difference in guidelines in different countries makes it difficult for the clinician to standardize the treatment provided to individuals. The variance in risk scoring systems makes it difficult to compare risk prediction tools across countries and hence the optimum treatment available for a given population. Standardization of guidelines based on randomized controlled trial data and validation and calibration of various risk scoring systems could help improve clinical outcomes in this high-risk group of individuals at risk of ASCVD within individual countries.

Na escola não indígena foi observada a convivência com estudantes Kaingang que concluem o ensino fundamental, iniciado na escola da aldeia. A partir disso, foram descritas situações que mostram a educação e a escola no cotidiano Kaingang, bem como o cotidiano da escola não indígena, como ocorre a convivência e as possibilidades para a interculturalidade, as conflitualidades e as relações de reciprocidade. O olhar dedicado para conhecer e descrever essa relação abre um campo de possibilidades decorrentes de trocas – às vezes desconfianças e isolamentos –, que oferecem contribuições importantes, tanto para a educação e a escola indígena quanto para a educação e a escola não indígena.   Indigenous students in a non-indigenous school: a chance for intercultural experiences  Abstract The study we present stems from a research made at an indigenous school and at a non-indigenous school. The research was basically made under the ethnographic methodology, during the years of 2011 and 2012. At the latter school, we observed the interaction with the Kaingang students that are graduating at elementary school, which they had first started at their village school. Having that ethnography as a starting point, we describe scenarios that represent education and school on the Kaingang everyday life, as well as the common day of the non-indigenous school, and how the interactions occur and what are the possibilities for intercultural and conflicting meetings and the reciprocity relations. The attentive eyes we lay upon this research in order to get to know and to describe this relation opens a world of possibilities that result from exchange situations – in which sometimes there is distrust

    Full Text Available Based on some contemporary narrations by southwestern indigenous peoples, this article proposes a conceptual reflection on the making of "lo indígena" in Colombia in relation to the genocidal processes rooted in modernity. It is argued thatthe political and ethical significance of the identities, historical consciousness, and political subjectivities of "lo indígena" emerges from within historical experiences of violence whose institutionalization and effects in today modern/colonial world can be seen in terms of a "genocidal continuum". The article also shows that the practices sustaining "lo indígena" are part of embodied cultural memories and forms of moral memory where narratives of suffering, claims to justice, and actions of resistance are closely linked.

It also focuses on relationships between Mexican and Bolivian educators, and their views on the other country’s experience in the field. As the analysis suggests, these experiences and debates are quite revealing of widespread ideas about the city (modern and civilized and the countryside (primitive and backward, and about the countryside as the Indian natural proper place.

  5. Adopting preoperative fasting guidelines.

    Anderson, Megan; Comrie, Rhonda

    2009-07-01

    In 1999, the American Society of Anesthesiologists adopted preoperative fasting guidelines to enhance the quality and efficiency of patient care. Guidelines suggest that healthy, non-pregnant patients should fast six hours from solids and two hours from liquids. Although these guidelines are in place, studies suggest that providers are still using the blanket statement "NPO after midnight" without regard to patient characteristics, the procedure, or the time of the procedure. Using theory to help change provider's beliefs may help make change more successful. Rogers' Theory of Diffusion of Innovations can assist in changing long-time practice by laying the groundwork for an analysis of the benefits and disadvantages of proposed changes, such as changes to fasting orders, while helping initiate local protocols instead of additional national guidelines.

    In general, the Exploratory Research and Development (ER D) Program supports research projects considered too basic or long-range to be funded by other Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) programs. This Program is managed for the Laboratory Director by a special assistant who chairs the LLNL's IR D Review Committee. Membership in the Review Committee comprises senior LLNL scientists, engineers, and managers whose areas of expertise span the range of scientific disciplines pursued at the Laboratory. The research supported by the Program falls into three categories: Exploratory Research in the Disciplines, Director's Initiatives, and Laboratory-Wide Competition. The first two, Exploratory Research and Director's Initiatives, promote pioneering work in the various scientific disciplines and programmatic areas. Laboratory departments and divisions propose and manage projects in the Exploratory Research category. The Laboratory Director, with the advice of the Review Committee, selects several larger projects to fund as Director's Initiative. These projects, which are proposed and managed by the responsible associate director, are intended to enhance the scope of existing programs or establish new technical directions and programs for the Laboratory. All FY90 projects are described in detail in this report. Other publications on ER D projects are included in the Publications List at the back of this report.

    In Australia, the social gradient of chronic disease has never been as prominent as in current times, and the uptake of preventive health messages appears to be lower in discrete population groups. In efforts to re-frame health promotion from addressing behavior change to empowerment, we engaged community groups in disadvantaged neighborhoods to translate published preventive guidelines into easy-to-understand messages for the general population. Our research team established partnerships with older aged community groups located in disadvantaged neighborhoods, determined by cross-referencing addresses with the Australian Bureau of Statistics, to translate guidelines regarding osteoporosis prevention. We developed an oversized jigsaw puzzle that we used to translate recommended osteoporosis prevention guidelines. Successful participatory partnerships between researchers, health promotion professionals, and community groups in disadvantaged neighborhoods build capacity in researchers to undertake future participatory processes; they also make the best use of expert knowledge held by specific communities.

    In recent years it has been recognized that in all phases of life, including pregnancy, physical activity promotes health benefits and precludes comorbidities, the scientific evidence is indisputable. Several organizations around the world have updated in recent years the guidelines and recommendations for exercise in pregnancy. The December 2015, updated guidelines of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists emphasize that physical activity in pregnancy has minimal risk. Although recommending exercise in pregnancy, the anatomic/physiological changes, absolute and relative contraindications should be considered. Women who exercised regularly before pregnancy, in the absence of contraindications, can continue and engage in moderate to strenuous activities, although information on strenuous activities in pregnancy is still limited. This review summarizes the most recent published and recommended guidelines.

    A number of countries have developed regulations or guidelines for cyanotoxins and cyanobacteria in drinking water, and in some cases in water used for recreational activity and agriculture. The main focus internationally has been upon microcystin toxins, produced predominantly by Microcystis aeruginosa. This is because microcystins are widely regarded as the most significant potential source of human injury from cyanobacteria on a world-wide scale. Many international guidelines have taken their lead from the World Health Organization's (WHO) provisional guideline of 1 microg L(-1) for microcystin-LR in drinking-water released in 1998 (WHO 2004). The WHO guideline value is stated as being 'provisional', because it covers only microcystin-LR, for reasons that the toxicology is limited and new data for toxicity of cyanobacterial toxins are being generated. The derivation of this guideline is based upon data that there is reported human injury related to consumption of drinking water containing cyanobacteria, or from limited work with experimental animals. It was also recognised that at present the human evidence for microcystin tumor promotion is inadequate and animal evidence is limited. As a result the guideline is based upon the model of deriving a Tolerable Daily intake (TDI) from an animal study No Observed Adverse Effects Level (NOAEL), with the application of appropriate safety or uncertainty factors. The resultant WHO guideline by definition is the concentration of a toxin that does not result in any significant risk to health of the consumer over a lifetime of consumption. Following the release of this WHO provisional guideline many countries have either adopted it directly (e.g., Czech Republic, France, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Brazil and Spain), or have adopted the same animal studies, TDI and derivation convention to arrive at slight variants based upon local requirements (e.g., Australia, Canada). Brazil currently has the most

    WHO and UNICEF state that the use of human milk from other sources should be the first alternative when it is not possible for the mother to breastfeed. Human milk banks should be made available in appropriate situations. The IYCF Chapter is actively concerned about the compelling use of formula feeds in the infants because of the non availability of human breast milk banks. A National Consultative Meet for framing guidelines was summoned by the IYCF Chapter and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India on 30th June, 2013, with representations from various stakeholders. The guidelines were drafted after an extensive literature review and discussions. Though these guidelines are based on the experiences and guidelines from other countries, changes have been made to suit the Indian setup, culture and needs, without compromising scientific evidence. To ensure quality of donated breast milk as a safe end product. Human Milk Banking Association should be constituted, and human milk banks should be established across the country. National coordination mechanism should be developed with a secretariat and technical support to follow-up on action in States. Budgetary provisions should be made available for the activities.

Trata-se de um estudo de campo exploratório. A amostra foi composta por 55 índios, maiores de 18 anos e de ambos os sexos. O instrumento utilizado foi uma entrevista semiestruturada aplicada individualmente. Para a análise dos dados, foi utilizado o software SPSS e Análise de Conteúdo Temática. Os resultados revelaram que 41,8% da amostra estudada têm, pelo menos, um membro da família que faz uso de bebida alcoólica, em sua maioria destiladas, e que o uso ocorre em idade precoce, estando desvinculado da cultura e de rituais. Dos entrevistados 27,3% afirmaram que a bebida traz diversos problemas para toda a família, inclusive com a morte. Pode-se concluir que, na população indígena estudada, o consumo de bebidas alcoólicas já ocorre de forma abusiva e precoce, necessitando-se de um trabalho mais efetivo de prevenção e de resgate da cultura desta comunidade.Due to the growth of usage and alcohol abuse in indigenous populations of Brazil, this research aims to investigate alcohol consumption in the Potiguara community, in the State of Paraíba, considering its specific cultural and regional differences of ethnicity.

    Full Text Available Ante la intensificación de los procesos de escolarización de los pueblos indígenas y también de la retórica interculturalista/bilingüista, resulta necesario y pertinente hacer un análisis crítico de los nuevos materiales emitidos por la Secretaría de Educación Pública mexicana para el medio indígena. Para ello se buscará desvelar tanto la imagen que se maneja de las personas indígenas como el mensaje que el gobierno quiere mandar a estos jóvenes. Se verá que los contenidos reflejan, por un lado, poca “interculturalidad”, y por el otro, un Estado paternalista, el cual argumenta la incorporación o la integración de los pueblos indígenas a su cosmovisión occidental. Se hace patente la inculcación de un patriotismo feroz y surge la pregunta sobre si realmente han cambiado las intenciones integracionistas del gobierno mexicano. En cuanto a la imagen que se maneja de los pueblos, brotan una y otra vez viejos estereotipos y lugares comunes que sorprenden por su carga despectiva. Las prácticas culturales manifestadas en los materiales escolares ofrecen una perspectiva muy reducida de la diversidad y dejan abierta la pregunta sobre las posibilidades de un llegar a una verdadera “interculturalidad” en la educación.

  19. Os indígenas na cartografia da América lusitana

    Alanna Souto

    Full Text Available Resumo Na cartografia realizada a partir da conquista colonial da América lusitana e da Amazônia, foram recorrentes as representações indígenas, como forma de reinventar e de localizar os povos nativos. Muitas vezes, essas representações eram pictóricas, com forte presença de elementos figurativos e de ornamentos, aspectos particulares ao período dos anos Quinhentos aos Setecentos. Contudo, na era pombalina (1750-1777, houve mudança nas representações cartográficas e nos valores estéticos relativos à simplicidade. Logo, a simetria na composição dos mapas passou a sobressair em detrimento da ornamentação. Os indígenas pouco apareciam na produção cartográfica, a não ser quando eram indicadas, nominalmente, as povoações e as aldeias estabelecidas dentro da nova configuração territorial resultante das reformas pombalinas, as quais fundaram administrativamente vilas, lugares, freguesias e povoações ou, economicamente, fazendas, engenhos, roças e terrenos. Essa nova ordem colonial intensificou os processos de desterritorialização e de reterritorialização das sociedades indígenas na Amazônia, que, de maneira diversa, se relacionaram às conquistas portuguesas (e espanholas. O objetivo deste artigo é discutir as representações indígenas no âmbito do espaço (chamado de concebido da Amazônia colonial, por meio da investigação dos mapas coloniais, na perspectiva teórico-metodológica da cartografia histórica.

  11. Indígenas en la universidad brasileña: sueño, esperanza o pesadilla?

    Josinaldo da SILVA

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available Pensar en la presencia de indígenas en la enseñanza superior era, hasta hace poco tiempo, una utopía. Este artículo enfoca discusiones sobre la efectivación de las políticas de acciones afirmativas para indígenas en las universidades brasileñas, que son recientes no porque la población indígena no se haya manifestado, sino porque el país no tenía abertura para tal diálogo. La diversidade en la universidad ha contribuído para el diálogo y el entendimiento. Se narra que, para competir para los cupos, los candidatos indígenas necesitan comprobar su indianidad y firmar un término de compromiso con la comunidad indígena que los nomina. Ese proceso de identificación es complicado porque, ocasionalmente, debido a intercambio de favores, parientes de hacendados y políticos --ya privilegiados socialmente-- acaban utilizando los cupos. Los indígenas siempre estudiaron en escuelas públicas en situación precaria. Los autores relatan los problemas relacionados con la llegada a Brasilia y las dificultades generadas por la distancia de las aldeas. También se narran las experiencias de la convivencia en el ambiente universitario de la Universidad de Brasília, en dónde en algunos casos, la clase ignora y segrega a los estudiantes indígenas, y en otros, los docentes los ignoran o hasta se manifiestan contrarios a su presencia. Se cuestiona el papel de la Fundación Nacional del Indio (FUNAI. Aun frente a estas dificultades, los primeros indígenas comienzan a graduarse. Con orgullo y manteniendo vivas sus tradiciones, se espera el replanteamiento de la medicina occidental como complementaria a la medicina tradicional.

    Full Text Available Esta revisión narrativa aborda la problemática de las gestantes indígenas con VIH, haciendo un recuento de los principales hallazgos sobre el tema a nivel internacional para luego revisar el estado de la investigación en el Perú. En el ámbito internacional se encuentra que el estudio sobre las gestantes indígenas con VIH se centra en la salud del nonato y la prevención de la transmisión vertical, existe poca información acerca de las concepciones sobre la enfermedad, prácticas de cuidado y prevención de la transmisión vertical, así como las percepciones sobre el tratamiento antirretroviral de gran actividad (TARGA y el papel de la medicina tradicional en la atención de su condición de salud. A nivel nacional se encuentra solo con una referencia bibliográfica. Se evidencia la necesidad de un urgente enfoque médico antropológico para investigar y atender los casos de VIH en gestantes y mujeres en edad reproductiva en las comunidades indígenas de la amazonia peruana.

    Full Text Available Relacionamos el porcentaje de voto por las principales coaliciones de Chile con el porcentaje de indígenas por comuna. Concluimos que existe una relación positiva entre concentración de población indígena y voto por candidatos de derecha. Sin embargo, la inclusión del territorio como variable explicativa cambia sustantivamente las interpretaciones. Así, en la primera región, con predominio de población aymara, a mayor porcentaje de indígenas por comuna, mejor desempeño electoral de los candidatos de derecha. En la novena región, en tanto, no hay una relación significativa entre porcentaje de mapuches por comuna y voto por la derecha. Probamos una serie de modelos estadísticos que confirman tales planteamientos en conjunto con evidencia histórica y entrevistas a informantes claves. Sugerimos que las diferencias electorales entre aymaras y mapuches obedecen a su disímil estructura sociopolítica, siendo históricamente más vertical en los primeros y más descentralizada en los segundos.

  1. How do physicians adopt and apply opioid prescription guidelines in the emergency department? A qualitative study.

    Kilaru, Austin S; Gadsden, Sarah M; Perrone, Jeanmarie; Paciotti, Breah; Barg, Frances K; Meisel, Zachary F

    2014-11-01

    An increase in prescriptions for opioid pain medications has coincided with increasing opioid overdose deaths. Guidelines designed to optimize opioid prescriptions written in the emergency department have been implemented, with substantial controversy. Little is known about how physicians perceive and apply these guidelines. We seek to identify key themes about emergency physicians' definition, awareness, use, and opinions of opioid-prescribing guidelines. We conducted semistructured qualitative interviews with a convenience sample of 61 emergency physicians attending the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly (October 2012, Denver, CO). Participants varied with respect to age, sex, geographic region, practice setting, and years of practice experience. We analyzed the interview content with modified grounded theory, an iterative coding process to identify patterns of responses and derive key themes. The study team examined discrepancies in the coding process to ensure reliability and establish consensus. When aware of opioid-prescribing guidelines, emergency physicians often defined them as policies developed by individual hospitals that sometimes reflected guidelines at the state or national level. Guidelines were primarily used by physicians to communicate decisions to limit prescriptions to patients on discharge rather than as tools for decisionmaking. Attitudes toward guidelines varied with regard to general attitudes toward opioid medications, as well as the perceived effects of guidelines on physician autonomy, public health, liability, and patient diversion. These exploratory findings suggest that hospital-based opioid guidelines complement and occasionally supersede state and national guidelines and that emergency physicians apply guidelines primarily as communication tools. The perspectives of providers should inform future policy actions that seek to address the problem of opioid abuse and overdose through practice guidelines

    Performing proper hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis is essential to reducing the rates of health care-associated infections, including surgical site infections. The updated AORN "Guideline for hand hygiene" provides guidance on hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis, the wearing of fingernail polish and artificial nails, proper skin care to prevent dermatitis, the wearing of jewelry, hand hygiene product selection, and quality assurance and performance improvement considerations. This article focuses on key points of the guideline to help perioperative personnel make informed decisions about hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis. The key points address the necessity of keeping fingernails and skin healthy, not wearing jewelry on the hands or wrists in the perioperative area, properly performing hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis, and involving patients and visitors in hand hygiene initiatives. Perioperative RNs should review the complete guideline for additional information and for guidance when writing and updating policies and procedures. Copyright © 2017 AORN, Inc.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The World Health Organization (WHO, like many other organisations around the world, has recognised the need to use more rigorous processes to ensure that health care recommendations are informed by the best available research evidence. This is the first of a series of 16 reviews that have been prepared as background for advice from the WHO Advisory Committee on Health Research to WHO on how to achieve this. Objectives We reviewed the literature on guidelines for the development of guidelines. Methods We searched PubMed and three databases of methodological studies for existing systematic reviews and relevant methodological research. We did not conduct systematic reviews ourselves. Our conclusions are based on the available evidence, consideration of what WHO and other organisations are doing and logical arguments. Key questions and answers We found no experimental research that compared different formats of guidelines for guidelines or studies that compared different components of guidelines for guidelines. However, there are many examples, surveys and other observational studies that compared the impact of different guideline development documents on guideline quality. What have other organizations done to develop guidelines for guidelines from which WHO can learn? • Establish a credible, independent committee that evaluates existing methods for developing guidelines or that updates existing ones. • Obtain feedback and approval from various stakeholders during the development process of guidelines for guidelines. • Develop a detailed source document (manual that guideline developers can use as reference material. What should be the key components of WHO guidelines for guidelines? • Guidelines for guidelines should include information and instructions about the following components: 1 Priority setting; 2 Group composition and consultations; 3 Declaration and avoidance of conflicts of interest; 4 Group processes; 5

  9. El estatuto legal y social de las lenguas en la educación indígena mexicana

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available En este documento se propicia una reflexión acerca de la forma en que la inmersión de las lenguas indígenas en preceptos de carácter legal y social confiere una dinámica particular a la realización de la educación formal destinada a amplios sectores de la población mexicana. Las interrogantes que se plantean a lo largo de la exposición son: ¿Cómo se traduce lo asentado en el plano jurídico en relación con el indígena en el marco de la educación indígena?, y ¿cómo se introduce la representación social del indígena en la educación formal diseñada para ellos? Para un acercamiento a las respuestas se indaga en los documentos oficiales que abordan el tema, en la revisión de datos censales y en algunos elementos teórico-metodológicos de la educación, las ciencias del lenguaje y la antropología. Las premisas de las cuales se parte son: 1 el auge de los movimientos indígenas ha golpeado a la hegemonía de las posiciones multiculturales y asimilacionistas; 2 los pueblos indígenas se han instalado como actores sociales en los escenarios políticos, y 3 la cuestión indígena no es un problema marginal. Exige una reforma del Estado y la participación de la sociedad civil. Un análisis fundamentado en la categoría de formación imaginaria propuesta por Michel Pécheux1 permite un acercamiento a la caracterización del sujeto indígena por sí mismo; del otro, sea o no indígena y del referente; es decir, de lengua y cultura. De éste se desprende que es necesaria una reformulación del estatuto legal, que sea acorde con los requerimientos de los diversos grupos indígenas, con el reconocimiento a la diversidad cultural.

  12. A review of clinical guidelines.

    LENUS (Irish Health Repository)

    Andrews, E J

    2012-02-03

    BACKGROUND: Clinical guidelines are increasingly used in patient management but few clinicians are familiar with their origin or appropriate application. METHODS: A Medline search using the terms \\'clinical guidelines\\' and \\'practice guidelines\\' was conducted. Additional references were sourced by manual searching from the bibliographies of articles located. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Clinical guidelines originated in the USA in the early 1980s, initially as a cost containment exercise. Significant improvements in the process and outcomes of care have been demonstrated following their introduction, although the extent of improvement varies considerably. The principles for the development of guidelines are well established but many published guidelines fall short of these basic quality criteria. Guidelines are only one aspect of improving quality and should be used within a wider framework of promoting clinical effectiveness. Understanding their limitations as well as their potential benefits should enable clinicians to have a clearer view of their place in everyday practice.

  13. Uniformity of Vector Bundles of Finite Rank on Complete Intersections of Finite Codimension in a Linear ind-Grassmannian

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. M. Yermakova

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available A linear projective ind-variety X is called 1-connected if any two points on it can be connected by a chain of lines l1, l2, ..., lk in X, such that li intersects li+1. A linear projective ind-variety X is called 2-connected if any point of X lies on a projective line in X and for any two lines l and l 0 in X there is a chain of lines l = l1, l2, ..., lk = l 0 , such that any pair (li , li+1 is contained in a projective plane P 2 in X. In this work we study an ind-variety X that is a complete intersection in the linear ind-Grassmannian G = lim−→G(km, nm. By definition, X is an intersection of G with a finite number of ind-hypersufaces Yi = lim−→Yi,m, m ≥ 1, of fixed degrees di , i = 1, ..., l, in the space P∞, in which the ind-Grassmannian G is embedded by Pl¨ucker. One can deduce from work [17] that X is 1-connected. Generalising this result we prove that X is 2-connected. We deduce from this property that any vector bundle E of finite rank on X is uniform, i. e. the restriction of E to all projective lines in X has the same splitting type. The motiavtion of this work is to extend theorems of Barth - Van de Ven - Tjurin - Sato type to complete intersections of finite codimension in ind-Grassmannians.

    Research carried out during the past two-decades extended the understanding of actions of vitamin D, from regulating calcium and phosphate absorption and bone metabolism to many pleiotropic actions in organs and tissues in the body. Most observational and ecological studies report association of higher serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations with improved outcomes for several chronic, communicable and non-communicable diseases. Consequently, numerous agencies and scientific organizations have developed recommendations for vitamin D supplementation and guidance on optimal serum 25(OH)D concentrations. The bone-centric guidelines recommend a target 25(OH)D concentration of 20ng/mL (50nmol/L), and age-dependent daily vitamin D doses of 400-800IU. The guidelines focused on pleiotropic effects of vitamin D recommend a target 25(OH)D concentration of 30ng/mL (75nmol/L), and age-, body weight-, disease-status, and ethnicity dependent vitamin D doses ranging between 400 and 2000IU/day. The wise and balanced choice of the recommendations to follow depends on one's individual health outcome concerns, age, body weight, latitude of residence, dietary and cultural habits, making the regional or nationwide guidelines more applicable in clinical practice. While natural sources of vitamin D can raise 25(OH)D concentrations, relative to dietary preferences and latitude of residence, in the context of general population, these sources are regarded ineffective to maintain the year-round 25(OH)D concentrations in the range of 30-50ng/mL (75-125nmol/L). Vitamin D self-administration related adverse effects, such as hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria are rare, and usually result from taking extremely high doses of vitamin D for a prolonged time.

    The objectives of this exploratory research were to (1) explore the characteristics and risks associated with college theme parties, (2) assess differences in risk associated with college theme parties compared to non-theme parties and (3) to assess differences in risk associated with risqué theme parties as compared to non-risqué theme parties. We used a mixed methods design. Results are presented from three exploratory studies of alcohol consumption in college theme parties: (1) four qualitative focus groups of students who have attended such events, (2) a web-based survey and (3) a multi-level (observational, survey, breath blood alcohol samples) study of 226 college parties, 29 of which were themed events. Focus group participants included a convenience sample of 17 college students aged 18-24 years; participants for the web survey included a convenience sample of 407 college students; participants for the multi-level study of college parties included 1725 randomly selected individuals at college parties. Themes tended to be highly sexualized. Compared to non-themed parties, theme parties have been observed to be more rowdy, louder, involve drinking games, feature kegs and feature hard liquor. Themed parties are associated with heavy drinking and are consistent with environments sought by heavy drinkers. As a result, themed parties are marked by a greater number of alcohol-related problems. Further research is needed to understand more clearly the risks involved in themed and risqué themed events.

    Full Text Available Introduction: Some of the dental materials possess occupational hazards, preprocedural errors, and patient allergies as suggested by evidence. With due consideration to safety of the patients and dental professionals, it is essential that the trade of these materials is in conformity with the law. Aim: To perform the legal analysis of the information displayed on the packaging of dental materials. Materials and Methods: The Bureau of Indian Standards sets guidelines for packaging and marketing of dental products in India. An exploratory cross-sectional study was performed using various search engines and websites to access the laws and regulations existing pertaining to dental materials packaging. Based on the data obtained, a unique packaging standardization checklist was developed. Dental laboratory and impression plasters, alginates, and endodontic instruments were surveyed for all the available brands. This study considered 16 brands of plasters and alginates and 42 brands of endodontic instruments for legal analysis. Legal analysis was performed using the direct observation checklist. Descriptive statistics were obtained using SPSS version 19. Results: The guidelines set by the Bureau of Indian Standards do exist but are not updated and stand as oblivious guards for marketing standards. Overall compliance to the guidelines was reported to be 18.5% by brands of alginates, 4.1% by plaster of Paris, and 11.11% by endodontic instruments. Wave One™ File reported maximum adherence with the guidelines as 66.7%. Conclusion: This study found lower rate of adherence to the guidelines, thus indicating insufficient information being disclosed to the consumers.

    We, the Postdoc Professional Development Program (PD2P) leadership team, wrote these postdoc guidelines to be a starting point for communication between new postdocs, their staff mentors, and their managers. These guidelines detail expectations and responsibilities of the three parties, as well as list relevant contacts. The purpose of the Postdoc Program is to bring in talented, creative people who enrich Sandia's environment by performing innovative R&D, as well as by stimulating intellectual curiosity and learning. Postdocs are temporary employees who come to Sandia for career development and advancement reasons. In general, the postdoc term is 1 year, renewable up to five times for a total of six years. However, center practices may vary; check with your manager. At term, a postdoc may apply for a staff position at Sandia or choose to move to university, industry or another lab. It is our vision that those who leave become long-term collaborators and advocates whose relationships with Sandia have a positive effect upon our national constituency.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between children exploratory behaviour and the quality of structural childcare and process in preschools. The study also examined how childcare quality affects the relationship between emotional wellbeing and exploratory behaviour. The sample comprised 206 children from 40 classrooms in 20 preschools, together with their teachers. The children's age ranged between 37 and 64 months (M = 50.96, SD = 6.54. The results indicated that children cared for by more sensitive teachers engaged in more exploratory behavior. However, no moderating effect was found of teacher sensitivity on the positive relationship between exploratory behavior and wellbeing. Finally, some factors linked to the quality of structural childcare also influenced exploratory behavior, although to a lesser extent.

    Tinnitus is the perception of sound without an external source. More than 50 million people in the United States have reported experiencing tinnitus, resulting in an estimated prevalence of 10% to 15% in adults. Despite the high prevalence of tinnitus and its potential significant effect on quality of life, there are no evidence-based, multidisciplinary clinical practice guidelines to assist clinicians with management. The focus of this guideline is on tinnitus that is both bothersome and persistent (lasting 6 months or longer), which often negatively affects the patient's quality of life. The target audience for the guideline is any clinician, including nonphysicians, involved in managing patients with tinnitus. The target patient population is limited to adults (18 years and older) with primary tinnitus that is persistent and bothersome. The purpose of this guideline is to provide evidence-based recommendations for clinicians managing patients with tinnitus. This guideline provides clinicians with a logical framework to improve patient care and mitigate the personal and social effects of persistent, bothersome tinnitus. It will discuss the evaluation of patients with tinnitus, including selection and timing of diagnostic testing and specialty referral to identify potential underlying treatable pathology. It will then focus on the evaluation and treatment of patients with persistent primary tinnitus, with recommendations to guide the evaluation and measurement of the effect of tinnitus and to determine the most appropriate interventions to improve symptoms and quality of life for tinnitus sufferers. The development group made a strong recommendation that clinicians distinguish patients with bothersome tinnitus from patients with nonbothersome tinnitus. The development group made a strong recommendation against obtaining imaging studies of the head and neck in patients with tinnitus, specifically to evaluate tinnitus that does not localize to 1 ear, is nonpulsatile

El problema parte de lo general de la base principial dogmática y la incongruencia con normas orgánicas constitucionales aborígenes, específicamente la jurisdicción indígena,la que debe atemperarse a la Constitución para arribar al tema particular de la resolución del conflicto de jurisdicciones. Para este propósito se analizaron e interpretaron los valores, principios y la constitucionalidad de la jurisdicción indígena, tomando incluso las expresiones semánticas del art. 246 de la Constitución Nacional. Los resultados de investigación de esta propuesta surgen de la colisión de los sistemas jurídico y normativo de culturas diferentes e iguales, deeste análisis constitucional, legal y jurisprudencial, se concreta la propuesta de una Audiencia Especial comorequisito de procedibilidad para solucionar el conflicto de competencias jurisdiccionales. Este procedimiento,no regulado legalmente, es una omisión legislativa; en este sentido estos resultados se recomienda tenerlos encuenta como propuesta para adicionar a la Ley 906 de 2004, o en la promulgación de la ley de coordinación d jurisdicciones o por la Corte Constitucional en revisiónde Acción de Tutela, en sentencias sobre temas de este carácter.

El Programa de Equidad de Género del Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica, con una alianza estratégica con el Centro de Información Tecnológica, el Instituto de Estudios de la Mujer de la Universidad Nacional y Fundecooperación, está desarrollando una estrategia de generación de capacidades productivas en grupos de mujeres indígenas en Talamanca. Esta región y en general, los ocho pueblos indígenas que allí viven se han considerado de extrema pobreza y las mujeres tienen las más bajas posibilidades de educación por sus fuertes roles de reproducción y cuido. El proyecto inicia con tres grupos organizados de mujeres indígenas que están gestando proyectos productivos de turismo sostenible, una finca orgánica y reciclaje de desechos sólidos. Estos temas responden a una realidad de la zona: el desempleo y subempleo principalmente de las mujeres, deforestación, contaminación, problemas de salud y falta de oportunidades educativas. El objetivo final es crear una capacidad instalada y organizativa que promueva emprendimientos sostenibles y exitosos, especialmente entre las mujeres y su integración a redes nacionales de micro y pequeña empresas.

    Full Text Available Esta pesquisa é o estudo do reaproveitamento de resíduos de MDF da Cimol, uma indústria do Polo Moveleiro de Linhares, Espírito Santo, e apresenta conceitos como design sustentável, Ecodesign, Cradle to Cradle e outros. Dentro do contexto abordado, o designer tem contribuído para a busca de soluções, analisando custo-benefício de produtos que atendam as necessidades de seus usuários, sem que isso deixe de garantir às gerações futuras os recursos necessários para a manutenção da vida. Com base no conjunto de informações coletadas, observou-se uma preocupação do Polo Moveleiro de Linhares com as questões ambientais, reforçando a relevância desta pesquisa e a necessidade de um levantamento de resíduos, que é uma das metas descritas no Planejamento do Arranjo Produtivo Local para o próximo triênio, segundo o sindicato da região. Os resíduos da indústria podem ser aproveitados de forma mais efetiva, evitando o descarte e a extração desnecessária de matéria-prima da natureza. Foi demonstrada, através do projeto de uma mesa de centro, a possibilidade de produzir um mobiliário com qualidade semelhante ao que utiliza a chapa inteira de MDF, empregando princípios do design sustentável, bem como a possibilidade de projetar uma linha de produtos aproveitando os tamanhos variados dos resíduos da indústria.

    The "Guidelines 2000 for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. An International Consensus an Science" are the first true international CPR guidelines in the history of resuscitation medicine. Experts from major international resuscitation organizations (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, ILCOR) achieved a consensus of recommendations which had to pass a rigorous review procedure applying the tools of evidence-based medicine: all proposed guidelines or guideline changes had to be based on critically appraised pieces of evidence which had to be integrated into a final class of recommendations. The most important changes compared to previous recommendations from either the European Resuscitation Council or the American Heart Association are presented and commented upon.

A Política Industrial, Tecnológica e de Comércio Exterior (PITCE, lançada no início de 2004, sinalizou nessa direção, elegendo quatro setores considerados prioritários: fármacos, bens de capital, software e semicondutores. O presente artigo procura analisar a indústria de semicondutores nos contextos nacional e internacional e focaliza o papel da política industrial seletiva na dinamização de seu desenvolvimento. A partir da caracterização dessa indústria, é feito um benchmarking das políticas adotadas pela Coreia do Sul – país que apresentou, em certas fases de seu desenvolvimento industrial, características semelhantes ao brasileiro, mas que despontou como grande produtor e exportador de tecnologia de ponta. O texto indica que as políticas orientadas ao desenvolvimento da indústria de semicondutores, na PITCE, geram condições para a maturidade do setor. Contudo, essa maturidade enfatiza a fase de “imitação” (ligada ao processo de engenharia reversa e de internalização (por meio do incremento dos processos de aprendizado e produção interna, mas pouca ênfase seria alcançada na fase de criação (obtenção de tecnologia própria e de desenvolvimento de tecnologia nacional. Com esses percalços, em 2008, o governo atrelou o padrão da TV Digital (High Definition TV – HDT à construção de uma fábrica de semicondutores no Brasil, buscando uma saída para implantar tal indústria por uma empresa transnacional.

Após examinar as relações entre a radicalização das demandas indígenas e as transformações do Estado mexicano, a análise centra-se na história recente de uma comunidade indígena nahua no litoral do estado de Michoacán, que tem uma longa e bem-sucedida história de defesa de suas terras comunais, e numa comunidade purépecha no planalto central do mesmo estado, que tem sido sua aliada. A violência de atores externos, que aflige estas comunidades, revela as consequências da penetração em todos os níveis de governo do crime organizado, mas a análise também mostra como a capacidade das comunidades indígenas para resistirem pode ser prejudicada pela sua desarticulação interna pelas mesmas forças, num clima de impunidade em que a violência paramilitar pode avançar uma variedade de interesses econômicos regionais e transnacionais.This text analyzes the present situation of the struggles of Mexico's indigenous peoples to achieve self-determination and transcend the limits of neoliberal multiculturalism.

    The purpose of this exploratory study, conducted by Pacific Northwest Laboratory for Westinghouse Hanford Company, was to determine the effect of applying advanced chemical separations technologies to the processing and disposal of high-level wastes (HLW) stored in underground tanks. The major goals of this study were to determine (1) if the wastes can be partitioned into a small volume of HLW plus a large volume of low-level waste (LLW), and (2) if the activity in the LLW can be lowered enough to meet NRC Class LLW criteria. This report presents the results obtained in a brief scouting study of various processes for separating radionuclides from Hanford complexant concentrate (CC) waste.

    Azzam, Tarek; Harman, Elena

    2016-02-01

    This exploratory study attempts to demonstrate the potential utility of crowdsourcing as a supplemental technique for quantifying transcribed interviews. Crowdsourcing is the harnessing of the abilities of many people to complete a specific task or a set of tasks. In this study multiple samples of crowdsourced individuals were asked to rate and select supporting quotes from two different transcripts. The findings indicate that the different crowdsourced samples produced nearly identical ratings of the transcripts, and were able to consistently select the same supporting text from the transcripts. These findings suggest that crowdsourcing, with further development, can potentially be used as a mixed method tool to offer a supplemental perspective on transcribed interviews.

The first approach is an algorithm that searches for periods of variability and stability at the individual level as well as for patterns of overlap in such periods between the two individuals in a couple. These patterns describe the daily ups and downs in the couples' affect and are predictive of the state of the couples 1 to 2 years later. The second approach, hierarchical segmentation, is based on the idea of partitioning the time series in segments with distinct data patterns. In the case of data from dyads, as in the illustration, the patterns can be compared in terms of coherence between the 2 individuals in the dyad. The third approach is based on network analysis, and its use is shown as a method to examine data transitions at the individual and dyadic level as well as system-wide coherence in multivariate systems. For each approach, I provide examples of its use with empirical data. The article ends with general guidelines and recommendations for researchers interested in using exploratory methods as a way to examine psychological processes.

    Full Text Available El reconocimiento constitucional de los derechos indígenas en América Latina, así como la ratificación del Convenio 169 de la OTI hacen surgir varios interrogantes. En este artículo examinamos algunas cuestiones en debate. Para contextualizar, iniciamos el artículo indicando la imbricación de las luchas indígenas en los procesos de reforma del Estado y de la economía, así como de democratización. Después exploramos las interrogantes acerca del reconocimiento del derecho propio del indígena, de sus “usos y costumbres” políticos y de sus territorios. Concluimos que el reconocimiento de una pluralidad de esferas públicas de distinta configuración es una precondición para la convivencia y el diálogo intercultural.

    Full Text Available La migración sigue siendo un fenómeno social presente en México, con diferentes niveles de intensidad. Para conocer este movimiento poblacional en una zona indígena totonaca se realizó un estudio en Huehuetla, Puebla, mediante una muestra estadística a 83 indígenas productores de café. Los resultados indican que entre los campesinos indígenas, la migración interna, proceso actualmente poco estudiado, se encuentra asociada con la crisis de precios que vive la cafeticultura desde hace más de una década. Las ciudades de México y Puebla se son los principales polos de atracción, en los cuales los totonacos encuentran trabajo y mejores ingresos, que los que actualmente la cafeticultura y los espacios rurales no les pueden ofrecer.

En términos cristianos, la preocupación moral fundamental concierne al alma puesto que el fin transcendente de un buen cristiano es alcanzar la salvación eterna. En cambio, según trato de mostrar aquí, el interés indígena por las nuevas filiaciones religiosas reside más bien en lo que éstas puedan ofrecer para evitar el mal mediante una modificación parcial de los procedimientos de fabricación y mantenimiento del cuerpo.

    Full Text Available Las justicias comunitaria e indígena se enfrentan no sólo a la exclusión y el racismo de la justicia de estado, sino también a los retos relacionados con las políticas del reconocimiento de la diversidad. El artículo presenta dos casos de justicia indígena en México que permiten reconocer los modos en que las demandas de género y de derechos humanos se enfrentan a ideologías incrustadas en las prácticas de este tipo de justicia. Si bien dichas prácticas tienden a naturalizar la exclusión de las mujeres, por otro lado se muestra cómo las mujeres en estos procesos contribuyen al cuestionamiento de los modos tradicionales de justicia a través de la redefinición de sus propios marcos culturales.

    Full Text Available La configuración del Estado argentino hacia fines del siglo XIX y principios del XX tuvo como uno de sus móviles principales la eliminación, asimilación e invisibilización de los pueblos indígenas. En las últimas décadas del siglo XX, se ha pasado de una política de invisibilización y homogeneización a otra de visibilización y reconocimiento de la diversidad cultural, promoviéndose la diversidad territorial, cultural y lingüística acallada durante décadas. El objetivo del presente artículo es indagar en las características asumidas por estos procesos en la provincia de Salta. Partiendo de considerar al Chaco salteño como territorio históricamente imaginado como indígena, interesa pensar cómo juegan estos imaginarios territoriales a la hora de diseñar e implementar políticas públicas para este territorio y su población.

    In recent years, foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) serotype O, topotype Middle East-South Asia (ME-SA), lineage Ind-2001d has spread from the Indian subcontinent to the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia. In the current report, we describe the first detection of this lineage in Vietnam in May, 2015 in Đắk Nông province. Three subsequent outbreaks caused by genetically related viruses occurred between May-October, 2015 after which the virus was not detected in clinical outbreaks for at least 15 subsequent months. The observed outbreaks affected (in chronological order): cattle in Đắk Nông province, pigs in Đắk Lắk province and Đắk Nông province, and cattle in Ninh Thuận province. The clinical syndromes associated with these outbreaks were consistent with typical FMD in the affected species. Overall attack rate on affected premises was 0.85 in pigs and 0.93 in cattle over the course of the outbreak. Amongst 378 pigs at risk on affected premises, 85 pigs died during the outbreaks; there were no deaths among cattle. The manner in which FMDV/O/ME-SA/Ind-2001d was introduced into Vietnam remains undetermined; however, movement of live cattle is the suspected route. This incursion has substantial implications for epidemiology and control of FMD in Southeast Asia.

Se distingue entre el acceso al agua para la subsistencia tradicional del agua para el desarrollo. Se advierten tendencias generalizadas de despojo de los territorios indígenas y sus recursos naturales, en las que los conflictos por el agua para la subsistencia son cada vez más graves, que exacerban la vulnerabilidad de las comunidades y la desorganización del complejo biocultural. El servicio del agua potable no tiene las condiciones para impulsar el desarrollo comunitario sustentable. Estas tendencias no son homogéneas, y se observan posibilidades de reconfiguración. Se requiere precisar el análisis para aportar al desarrollo de los pueblos indígenas, desde una plataforma biocultural contemporánea, en pleno respeto de sus derechos humanos individuales y colectivos.

  19. Exact capture probability analysis of GSC receivers over i.n.d. Rayleigh fading channels

    KAUST Repository

    Nam, Sungsik

    2013-07-01

    A closed-form expression of the capture probability of generalized selection combining (GSC) RAKE receivers was introduced in [1]. The idea behind this new performance metric is to quantify how the remaining set of uncombined paths affects the overall performance both in terms of loss in power and increase in interference levels. In this previous work, the assumption was made that the fading is both independent and identically distributed from path to path. However, the average strength of each path is different in reality. In order to derive a closed-form expression of the capture probability over independent and non-identically distributed (i.n.d.) fading channels, we need to derive the joint statistics of ordered non-identical exponential variates. With this motivation in mind, we first provide in this paper some new order statistics results in terms of both moment generating function (MGF) and probability density function (PDF) expressions under an i.n.d. assumption and then derive a new exact closed-form expression for the capture probability GSC RAKE receivers in this more realistic scenario. © 2013 IEEE.

    Full Text Available La existencia de una filosofía al interior de las culturas ancestrales en América Latina ha sido una cuestión hasta hoy debatida, desde que se planteó la interrogante sobre el filosofar de estos pueblos originarios. La colonización epistemológica de la cultura occidental ha llevado a invisibilizar y/o negar la existencia de otros saberes y formas de vivir la vida de diferentes comunidades indígenas. La filosofía como ejercicio racional para responder a los grandes interrogantes de la vida, no es sólo una, no tiene patria, ni época, sino que son múltiples, multiculturales, y algunas de ellas comunales. Entre los indígenas hay una cosmovivencia y un pensamiento nosótrico que puede mejorar la calidad de vida en todos los ámbitos de la misma, que en esencia son relacionales. Dos tópicos darán la pauta en este trabajo: primero el de las cosmovisiones y filosofías amerindias y en segundo lugar el de la nosotridad entre los incas y mayas-tojolabales.

It employs a source that until now has gone unnoticed among Americanists: a l6th-century Mexican manuscript containing paintings and text in Spanish, the Códice Tudela, currently housed in the Museo de América in Madrid. The indigenous borrowings found here provide early evidence of the influence of Native American languages —specially Náhuatl— on Spanish. The analysis focuses on two complementary themes: the semantic fields of the borrowings, and their persistence in present day Spanish.Este estudio analiza el léxico español de procedencia indígena en un tipo de texto que hasta ahora no ha sido utilizado como fuente por los americanistas. Se trata de un manuscrito mexicano de mediados del siglo XVI que contiene pinturas y texto español y que se halla en el Museo de América de Madrid: el Códice Tudela. Los préstamos indígenas que presenta constituyen pruebas tempranas de la influencia de las lenguas americanas en español, en particular de la lengua náhualt. El análisis se ha enfocado en dos direcciones complementarias: de los campos semánticos de los préstamos y de su persistencia en las hablas actuales.

    Using a Gifford-McMahon cycle cryocooler based refrigeration system, a single barrel hydrogen pellet injection (SPINS-IND) system is indigenously developed at Institute for Plasma Research, India. The injector is based on a pipe gun concept, where a pellet formed in situ in the gun barrel is accelerated to high speed using high pressure light propellant gas. The pellet size is decided by considering the Greenwald density limit and its speed is decided by considering a neutral gas shielding model based scaling law. The pellet shape is cylindrical of dimension (1.6 mm ℓ × 1.8 mm φ). For pellet ejection and acceleration, a fast opening valve of short opening duration is installed at the breech of the barrel. A three-stage differential pumping system is used to restrict the flow of the propellant gas into the plasma vacuum vessel. Diagnostic systems such as light gate and fast imaging camera (240 000 frames/s) are employed to measure the pellet speed and size, respectively. A trigger circuit and a programmable logic controller based integrated control system developed on LabVIEW enables to control the pellet injector remotely. Using helium as a propellant gas, the pellet speed is varied in the range 650 m/s-800 m/s. The reliability of pellet formation and ejection is found to be more than 95%. This paper describes the details of SPINS-IND and its test results.

Mediante cromatografia líquida de alta eficiência foi detectado e quantificado o ácido clorogênico na casca e na polpa de café. Foi avaliada a capacidade antioxidante dos extratos fenólicos, verificando-se sua capacidade sequestrante de radicais DPPH e sua ação redutora sobre radicais peroxila. O resíduo com maior capacidade antioxidante foi a casca de café. Esses resultados sugerem a possibilidade de reutilização dos resíduos da indústria do café para a obtenção de compostos antioxidantes, pois tais compostos têm inúmeras aplicações nas áreas de alimentos, cosméticos e farmacêutica.

    Full Text Available Desde el análisis metodológico jurídico-documental se realiza consideraciones sobre el tema de los pueblos indígenas, su reconocimiento y la educación intercultural bilingüe. Resaltando los postulados del Texto Constitucional de 1999, la Ley Orgánica de Pueblos y Comunidades Indígenas, los Convenios Internacionales conexos o relativos a la materia, suscritos por Venezuela y otras fuentes documentales. Se describe, el profundo cambio de perspectiva política, jurídica y cultural que reorienta la conducción del Estado venezolano, en relación a la cosmovisión del indígena. A la educación bilingüe, se le ha restado importancia, corriéndose el riesgo que se pierda las lenguas indígenas por su inconstante transmisión oral y la falta de sistematización. Los indígenas son poseedores de saberes y conocimientos en diferentes campos y como lo expresa el preámbulo Constitucional de 1999, Venezuela es una Nación, pluricultural, multiétnica y multibilingüe. De no darle seguimiento al progreso de las lenguas indígenas en sus expresiones oral y escrita, se estaría contribuyendo a la posible desaparición y a la pérdida de saberes y conocimientos milenarios, que constituye patrimonio intangible de la humanidad. Corresponde a la sociedad y al Estado promover mayores espacios de participación de su cultura, encaminados a profundizar en ésta población un mayor sentimiento de arraigo en sus territorios, costumbres y tradiciones sin excluirlos del proceso cultural de la Nación.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Francisco Márquez Guerra

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Durante los últimos años, los enfoques de planificación ecorregional de los programas de conservación han jugado un papel destacado en la configuración y gestión de los territorios indígenas en superposición o colindancia con las Áreas Protegidas en la Amazonía boliviana. Esto se evidencia en el apoyo técnico, jurídico y financiero brindado por las grandes ONG a los procesos participativos para la concepción, implementación y aplicación de instrumentos de gestión territorial y de recursos naturales indígenas como los estatutos y reglamentos comunitarios, entre otros. A partir de un trabajo etnográfico sobre las comunidades de la Reserva de Biosfera y Tierra Comunitaria de Origen Pilón Lajas, este texto describe cómo, en medio de estos procesos de juridificación de las instituciones indígenas, los actores de la conservación pretenden contribuir a la compatibilidad entre los estatutos y reglamentos indígenas y los instrumentos de gestión del Área Protegida. Encontramos que en esta operación de traducción de los objetivos de la conservación a la realidad local se movilizan dos conceptos de legitimación atribuidos a la condición indígena: la ancestralidad y la territorialidad. Los resultados muestran que con la utilización del primero, los actores de la conservación recrean una identidad ecológica para los indígenas, mientras que con el segundo recrean un espacio indígena con vocación de conservación. Se discute si los instrumentos resultantes de la compatibilización toman en cuenta la cosmología y el modo de existencia indígena en relación con los seres no humanos y el espacio.

  8. Emergency Response Guideline Development

    2007-09-30

    Task 5 of the collaborative effort between ORNL, Brazil, and Westinghouse for the International Nuclear Energy Research Initiative entitled “Development of Advanced Instrumentation and Control for an Integrated Primary System Reactor” focuses on operator control and protection system interaction, with particular emphasis on developing emergency response guidelines (ERGs). As in the earlier tasks, we will use the IRIS plant as a specific example of an integrated primary system reactor (IPSR) design. The present state of the IRIS plant design – specifically, the lack of a detailed secondary system design – precludes establishing detailed emergency procedures at this time. However, we can create a structure for their eventual development. This report summarizes our progress to date. Section 1.2 describes the scope of this effort. Section 2 compares IPSR ERG development to the recent AP1000 effort, and identifies three key plant differences that affect the ERGs and control room designs. The next three sections investigate these differences in more detail. Section 3 reviews the IRIS Safety-by-Design™ philosophy and its impact on the ERGs. Section 4 looks at differences between the IRIS and traditional loop PWR I&C Systems, and considers their implications for both control room design and ERG development. Section 5 examines the implications of having one operating staff control multiple reactor units. Section 6 provides sample IRIS emergency operating procedures (EOPs). Section 7 summarizes our conclusions.

    Electroencephalography allows the functional analysis of electrical brain cortical activity and is the gold standard for analyzing electrophysiological processes involved in epilepsy but also in several other dysfunctions of the central nervous system. Morphological imaging yields complementary data, yet it cannot replace the essential functional analysis tool that is EEG. Furthermore, EEG has the great advantage of being non-invasive, easy to perform and allows control tests when follow-up is necessary, even at the patient's bedside. Faced with the advances in knowledge, techniques and indications, the Société de Neurophysiologie Clinique de Langue Française (SNCLF) and the Ligue Française Contre l'Épilepsie (LFCE) found it necessary to provide an update on EEG recommendations. This article will review the methodology applied to this work, refine the various topics detailed in the following chapters. It will go over the summary of recommendations for each of these chapters and underline proposals for writing an EEG report. Some questions could not be answered by the review of the literature; in those cases, an expert advice was given by the working and reading groups in addition to the guidelines.

    2012-07-04

    Clinical practice guidelines are one of the foundations of efforts to improve health care. In 1999, we authored a paper about methods to develop guidelines. Since it was published, the methods of guideline development have progressed both in terms of methods and necessary procedures and the context for guideline development has changed with the emergence of guideline clearing houses and large scale guideline production organisations (such as the UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence). It therefore seems timely to, in a series of three articles, update and extend our earlier paper. In this first paper we discuss: the target audience(s) for guidelines and their use of guidelines; identifying topics for guidelines; guideline group composition (including consumer involvement) and the processes by which guideline groups function and the important procedural issue of managing conflicts of interest in guideline development.

    Se estima que Sur América en la época precolombina tenía entre 7 y 39 millones de habitantes(1. Como consecuencia del descubrimiento y la conquista de América la población indígena fue diezmada en gran proporción; entre las causas adicionales que explican esta disminución en la población, se encuentran múltiples patologías de diverso origen. A pesar de la reducción importante de las poblaciones aisladas Colombia cuenta hoy con una amplia diversidad étnica que motivó al Instituto de Genética Humana de la Universidad Javeriana, con su proyecto de Expedición Humana (EH, a indagar sobre los problemas que afectan estos grupos humanos.

    Para cumplir este propósito los objetivos planteados fueron: realzar con elementos científicos la diversidad humana y cultural de nuestro país, prestar atención primaria en salud a las comunidades indígenas y afro colombianas diagnosticando sus principales problemas de salud e impulsando el desarrollo de proyectos que permitan el acceso de estas comunidades a los servicios de salud. Buscó también respuestas que puedan hacer aportes importantes al conocimiento universal para generar una conciencia de nuestra identidad biológica y cultural.

    El objetivo de este estudio es describir la frecuencia de las enfermedades más comunes, el estado nutricional, los antecedentes médicos, familiares y los hallazgos de la evaluación oftalmológica practicada a niños entre 0 y 18 años pertenecientes a 37 comunidades indígenas, afro colombianas y aisladas en Colombia.

MÉTODOS: Se realizó estudio descriptivo en 19 comunidades indígenas del municipio de Valledupar Departamento de Cesar, Colombia. Durante junio a diciembre de 2007 se recolectaron triatominos por búsqueda activa en las viviendas de los indígenas. Los insectos luego fueron identificados por las claves de Lent & Wygodzinsky. Se desarrolló estudio del proceso infectivo en modelo animal y análisis enzimático de cepas de Trypanosoma cruzi, detectadas en heces de triatominos. RESULTADOS: Rhodnius prolixus presentó índice de densidad en las viviendas de 154,7%, Triatoma dimidiata de 102,45%, Triatoma maculata de 109,25% y Panstrogylus geniculatus de 0,3%. El índice promedio de infestación de las cuatro especies fue de 40,54% y, el de infección con T. cruzi de 9,4%. De cinco hemocultivos positivos para T. cruzi, tres se caracterizaron por isoenzimas, clasificándose en T. cruzi grupo I. El estudio de las biopsias reveló pocas características patológicas durante el proceso de infección con las cepas de T. cruzi aisladas de triatominos domiciliados. CONCLUSIÓN: Los altos índices de infestación por triatominos en las viviendas y el índice de infección por T. cruzi, evidencian la transmisión activa de la enfermedad de Chagas, situación que amerita la aplicación de medidas de control vectorial y el estudio seroepidemilógico de la población en riesgo. La identificación de las cepas de T. cruzi como grupo I concuerda con otros estudios realizados en esta región colombiana.

  16. Les indéterminations augustiniennes. Gilson’s reading of the Augustinian thought

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Federico Chiappetta

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Étienne Gilson ha dedicato numerosi lavori alla riflessione filosofica di Agostino e alla tradizione agostiniana medievale. Lo storico francese ha cercato di rilevare i tratti principali e lo spirito della filosofia agostiniana e si è interessato ai complessi sviluppi dell’agostinismo. Gilson ha introdotto la categoria storiografica delle indeterminazioni agostiniane per esprimere la complessità del pensiero di Agostino: questa filosofia sarebbe caratterizzata da numerose questioni irrisolte dovute al tentativo agostiniano di dare alla filosofia neoplatonica un significato cristiano. In alcuni suoi lavori, Gilson ha sostenuto che la convergenza fra queste indeterminazioni e alcuni sistemi di pensiero, giunti nell’occidente latino fra il XII e il XIII secolo, avrebbe ispirato la cosiddetta riforma tomista. A questo proposito è molto importante un articolo del 1926, Pourquoi saint Thomas a critiqué saint Augustin. L’articolo mostra l’importanza delle indeterminazioni negli studi dello storico: questa intrinseca incompletezza dell’opera di Agostino consentirebbe di comprendere non solo gli sviluppi del pensiero agostiniano, ma anche il pensiero di Tommaso d’Aquino e della scuola domenicana. L’articolo tratteggia, inoltre, l’interpretazione di Gilson del pensiero agostiniano in relazione all’adesione dello storico alla filosofia neoscolastica. Étienne Gilson devoted several studies to Augustine’s thought and to medieval Augustinian tradition. The French historian attempted to paint the main tracts and the spirit of Augustine’s philosophy and he studied the complex developments of Augustinianism. Gilson introduced the historical category of the indéterminations augustiniennes to express the problematic nature of Augustine’s thought: this philosophy would be characterized by several unexplained questions due to the Augustinian attempt to attach a Christian meaning to the Neoplatonic philosophy.

    Since the publication, 9 years ago, of the latest SEPAR (Spanish Society of Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery) Guidelines on Difficult-to-Control Asthma (DCA), much progress has been made in the understanding of asthmatic disease. These new data need to be reviewed, analyzed and incorporated into the guidelines according to their level of evidence and recommendation. Recently, consensus documents and clinical practice guidelines (CPG) addressing this issue have been published. In these guidelines, specific mention will be made of what the previous DCA guidelines defined as "true difficult-to-control asthma". This is asthma that remains uncontrolled after diagnosis and a systematic evaluation to rule out factors unrelated to the disease itself that lead to poor control ("false difficult-to-control asthma"), and despite an appropriate treatment strategy (Spanish Guidelines for the Management of Asthma [GEMA] steps 5 and 6): severe uncontrolled asthma. In this respect, the guidelines propose a revised definition, an attempt to classify the various manifestations of this type of asthma, a proposal for a stepwise diagnostic procedure, and phenotype-targeted treatment. A specific section has also been included on DCA in childhood, aimed at assisting healthcare professionals to improve the care of these patients. Copyright © 2014 SEPAR. Published by Elsevier Espana.

  20. Proposed Radiation Guidelines

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Davey, C. S.

    2004-07-01

    Current scientific evidence is that radiation at low levels is not harmful, but beneficial. This is borne out by both radiobiology and epidemiology. The ICRP 26 recommended limits of 50 mSv and 5 mSv per annum are comparable with the average natural background levels in Iran and Norway, respectively, and levels five times higher than that quoted for Iran are to be found in some populated parts of this world. The new limits proposed for ionising radiation are generated by comparison to existing recommended limits for essential minerals. There is a range of acceptable exposures to radiation, just as there is for minerals. The replacement for the ICRP 60 recommendations (20 mSv and 1 mSv for radiation workers and public respectively) should be higher limits of 200 mSv and 50 mSv. There should also be minimum recommended annual levels of 10 mSv, for both radiation workers and the public. The consequences of not proposing this change are continuing huge negative impacts to society. In cancer therapy, even the older guidelines caused unnecessary expense and delays. The cost to Canada is astronomical, when one considers the effect of the existing limits on the use of nuclear power, and the resulting use of hydrocarbons and the consequent increase in acid rain, etc. Of course, the same thing can be said of the entire world limited funds are diverted from areas where they would be better applied, and alternative solutions to societal needs are implemented, solutions which increase pollution and cause injury and death. It is time to reverse the current, expensive trend into misapplied ALARA, based on the paranoia about all things nuclear, which has developed since the linear no-threshold hypothesis was first proposed.propose the transition to a realistic and balanced approach to ionising radiation.

    Previous eye-tracking studies using an eye mark recorder have reported that disturbances in exploratory eye movements in adult schizophrenic patients are associated with social functioning. The current study sought to determine whether exploratory eye-movement disturbances are present in children with Asperger's syndrome (AS) compared with typically developing (TD) children. MATERIALS/PARTICIPANTS: The participants were 23 children with AS and 23 age-matched TD children. We measured exploratory eye movements using an EMR-8B eye mark recorder and an exploratory eye movement-measuring device. Eye movements were recorded while participants freely observed a geometric figure (free viewing task), and while they complied with the instructions of an experimenter (repeat-comparison task). We assessed eye fixation points (EFPs) and total eye scanning length (TESL) in all tasks, and measured the responsive search score (RSS) in the repeat-comparison task. In the free viewing task, children with AS exhibited significantly shorter TESL compared with TD children. In the repeat-comparison task, children with AS exhibited significantly lower RSS. Autism Spectrum Screening Questionnaire scores were negatively correlated with both EFP and TESL, but not RSS. The current results revealed that children with AS exhibited dysfunction in exploratory eye movements. Thus, assessing exploratory eye movements in a repeat-comparison task may be useful for detecting social impairment among children with AS. Copyright © 2013 The Japanese Society of Child Neurology.

    Full Text Available O presente estudo tem por objetivo discutir acerca do território indígena, mitologias, constituição e apropriação da terra. Em um exercício de retomada de consciência de quem são os verdadeiros donos da terra tentaremos postular em que lugar o indígena se encontra em uma sociedade globalizada e globalizante como a ocidental. Através de estudos, memórias, dados etnográficos e narrativas elaboradas por indígenas e não indígenas, iremos adentrar neste território de conflitos, identidades e significações. No Brasil, nós convivemos com este “drama” acompanhando através da mídia relatos sobre estes conflitos, onde o branco se faz dono de uma terra que julga sua e se apropria dela como é conveniente para si. Por ser um tema central, a discussão do que é esse território e como estamos postulando o mesmo se torna fundamental e será a base da análise realizada.

    Full Text Available Este artículo aborda el papel de los abogados semiprofesionales, conocidos como tinterillos, en las comunidades indígenas de la sierra ecuatoriana, a partir de mediados del siglo XIX, quienes adquirieron una presencia aparentemente ubicua en las comunidades rurales del Ecuador. Muchas veces los tinterillos fueron parte de las élites locales con algo de educación. Inspiraban respeto entre los indígenas (quienes, en su mayoría, eran analfabetos debido a su habilidad a manejar documentos escritos. Estos intermediarios comúnmente explotaron su posición privilegiada para su propio beneficio económico, social y político. Sin embargo, los indígenas llegaron a depender del apoyo de los tinterillos para denunciar ante el gobierno los abusos de los terratenientes. En ocasiones, en lugar de sentirse impotentes o víctimas, los indígenas aprendieron a negociar sus relaciones con esos intermediarios para su beneficio. El estudio de los tinterillos permite examinar las relaciones de poder que se negociaron entre diferentes culturas y a través de profundas divisiones de clase.

    Full Text Available La Constitución Nacional de 1992 reconoce la existencia de pueblos anteriores a la conformación del Estado paraguayo y, en ese sentido, les otorga una serie de derechos que protegen sus territorios, identidad y cultura. Esta declaración de intenciones constituye un quiebre con respecto al modelo anterior de políticas estatales dominantes y excluyentes hacia los pueblos indígenas. No obstante, los derechos de los pueblos indígenas siguen sin respetarse, y a pesar de los espacios ganados en cuanto a organizaciones sociales y políticas, la lucha continúa en esa búsqueda constante de la tierra sin mal.

    Mechanical component response to shock environments must be predictable in order to ensure reliability and safety. Whether the shock input results from accidental drops during transportation to projectile impact scenarios, the system must irreversibly transition into a safe state that is incapable of triggering the component . With this critical need in mind, the 2017 Nuclear Weapons Summer Product Realization Institute (NW SPRINT) program objective sought the design of a passive shock failsafe with emphasis on additively manufactured (AM) components. Team Advanced and Exploratory (A&E) responded to the challenge by designing and delivering multiple passive shock sensing mech anisms that activate within a prescribed mechanical shock threshold. These AM failsafe designs were tuned and validated using analytical and computational techniques including the shock response spectrum (SRS) and finite element analysis (FEA). After rapid prototyping, the devices experienced physical shock tests conducted on Sandia drop tables to experimentally verify performance.

    Full Text Available This paper presents an exploratory study on insight issues of leadership quality in Malaysia construction industry. It was conducted using an open interview session which focussed on three main elements which are challenges faced by construction leaders, leader’s role to sustain organization’s competitiveness and qualities to be an outstanding construction leader. Even though only four senior construction leaders were selected for this qualitative study, but the selection was properly scrutinised based on their expertise as construction leader. During the interview session, leaders were given ample time to express their opinions on the elements with minimum interference. Information revealed was recorded, analysed and synthesized to deduce findings of the study. It was found that significant challenges faced by construction leaders are ensuring project runs smoothly, managing cash flow and ability to manage large number of worker. For ensuring their organization remains competitive, leaders must be creative and persistence in handling construction project and not merely completing the task. To be outstanding, leaders should possess good leadership attributes as problem solver, communicator and motivator in their organizations. This study forms a basis for further exploration on leadership quality for construction industry.

    Full Text Available Social Entrepreneurship is an all-encompassing nomenclature, used for depicting the process of, bringing about social change on a major and impactful scale compared to a traditional Non-Governmental Organization (NGO.  It is an increasingly important concept in the study of voluntary, non-profit and not-for -profit organizations. Earlier, organizations addressing key social issues were assumed to be idealistic, philanthropic with entrepreneurial skills. Social Entrepreneurship in India is emerging primarily because the government is very keen on its promotion, not necessarily by funding it or by advising on it but by enabling it. The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR of the private sector with clearly earmarked funds and full-fledged action teams have played an important role in sprucing up the image of Social Entrepreneurship. The focus of the paper is to study the growing trends of Social Entrepreneurship in India and the new initiatives taken by various Social Entrepreneurs. It also gives a brief idea of different Theories of Social Entrepreneurship. Efforts are made to provide information and an exploratory study, related to the support activities of Social Entrepreneurship and Social Entrepreneurial ventures in India. This may be beneficial in future empirical studies of the subject. Keywords: Entrepreneurship, Social Entrepreneurship, Social Entrepreneur, NGO, Corporate Social Responsibility, India.

    Evidence concerning the determinants of vaginismus (V), in particular medical conditions, is inconclusive. To investigate, in a cohort of subjects consulting for female sexual dysfunction, whether there is a difference in medical and psychosocial parameters between women with V and women with other sexual complaints. A series of 255 women attending our clinic for female sexual dysfunction was consecutively recruited. V was diagnosed according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision criteria. Lifelong and acquired V cases were included. Patients underwent a structured interview and physical, gynecologic, laboratory, and clitoral ultrasound examinations; they completed the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), the Middlesex Hospital Questionnaire, the Female Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (FSDS), and the Body Uneasiness Test. V was diagnosed in 20 patients (7.8%). Women with V were significantly younger than the rest of the sample (P Vaginismus: An Exploratory Analysis. J Sex Med 2017;14:1392-1402.

  15. Microcap M&A: An Exploratory Study

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available A substantial body of accounting and finance literature has been devoted to the study of Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As dominated by discussions relating to the gains and losses that accrue from transactions involving large public companies. This paper makes a unique contribution to the literature by investigating the M&A experience of microcap businesses. Transactions involving microcap M&A are substantially different to those involving large companies on a number of dimensions. This paper explores the determinants of microcap M&A success and pitfalls and problems from an integration perspective. Due to the paucity of research in the area an exploratory research design is employed, conducting interviews with five CEOs of companies that had each managed multiple transactions. We find microcap M&As are successful when measured against identified goals but generally take longer and cost more than expected. Further, culture and communication are key issues in determining success/failure. We also find the in-house management of integration aspects is problematic for these businesses and suggest this warrants further study.

  16. Exploratory Item Classification Via Spectral Graph Clustering.

    2017-01-01

    Large-scale assessments are supported by a large item pool. An important task in test development is to assign items into scales that measure different characteristics of individuals, and a popular approach is cluster analysis of items. Classical methods in cluster analysis, such as the hierarchical clustering, K-means method, and latent-class analysis, often induce a high computational overhead and have difficulty handling missing data, especially in the presence of high-dimensional responses. In this article, the authors propose a spectral clustering algorithm for exploratory item cluster analysis. The method is computationally efficient, effective for data with missing or incomplete responses, easy to implement, and often outperforms traditional clustering algorithms in the context of high dimensionality. The spectral clustering algorithm is based on graph theory, a branch of mathematics that studies the properties of graphs. The algorithm first constructs a graph of items, characterizing the similarity structure among items. It then extracts item clusters based on the graphical structure, grouping similar items together. The proposed method is evaluated through simulations and an application to the revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire.

    Full Text Available Sanitary inspection of beef and pork meat has been the major tool for diagnosing animal cysticercosis and for preventing taeniasis in Brazil. The indigenous villages Jaguapiru and Bororo are located close to the urban area of the municipality of Dourados in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, where precarious basic sanitation conditions are observed. Both cattle and pigs are raised for self-consumption of meat and milk as well as for sale on the external market, generally without official sanitary inspection. In this study, 96 bovine carcasses and 117 pig blood serum samples from animals raised in these indigenous villages were evaluated for the presence of metacestodes by postmortem evaluation, and anti-Taenia sp. antibodies were investigated using the indirect ELISA test. Metacestode forms were observed in 18.7% of the bovine carcasses, and 9.4% of the pig serum samples were positive for anti-Taenia sp. antibodies. The occurrence of animal cysticercosis in the villages may favor the occurrence of this zoonosis in the indigenous populations. Enforcement of proper slaughter and sanitary inspection conditions are urgently needed for controlling the taeniasis-cysticercosis complex among the indigenous population.A inspeção sanitária da carne bovina e suína tem sido a principal forma diagnóstica da cisticercose animal e da prevenção da teníase no Brasil. As aldeias indígenas Jaguapirú e Bororó estão localizadas próximo à área urbana do município de Dourados-MS, com condições precárias de saneamento básico, onde bovinos e suínos são criados como fonte de alimento para consumo próprio, bem como para comercialização externa, geralmente sem inspeção sanitária oficial. Neste estudo, 96 carcaças bovinas e 117 amostras de soro de suínos, criados nas aldeias indígenas, foram avaliadas para a presença de formas metacestóides à inspeção sanitária e de anticorpos anti-Taenia sp. ao teste ELISA, respectivamente

La comparación se extiende más allá de las sociedades sedentarias y estratificadas de Mesoamérica y los Andes para incluir a los grupos no estatales de las tierras bajas de América del Sur y del norte de Nueva España y sirve de base para comprender sus reacciones contrastantes a la crisis de los imperios ibéricos iniciada en ese año.

    Full Text Available El cine de ficción se ha transformado en un medio masivo a partir del cual se divulgan determinadas interpretaciones sobre el pasado, las cuáles están sustentadas en una específica posición ideológica al respecto. Identificarlas permitirá, en nuestro caso, dar una explicación a las caracterizaciones que se hacen sobre el mundo indígena en el cine, en el marco de historias contextualizadas en la Argentina de fines del siglo XIX, etapa reconocida como de construcción del Estado Nacional. Para ello abordaremos dos películas que retratan el período: Martín Fierro (1968 de Leopoldo Torre Nilsson y Guerreros y Cautivas (1989 de Edgardo Cozarinsky.

La réalité de cette relation est vérifiée par la technique de la régression linéaire. La prise en compte des résidus permet de mettre en valeur des spécificités régionales, dont l'explication est esquissée par la prise en compte de l'histoire du peuplement et des structures sociales.

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available Los autores se refieren a la presencia de estudiantes indígenas en las universidades brasileñas, que constituye objeto de críticas y debates. Los indicadores de salud en las comunidades indígenas muestran las desventajas e inequidades acumuladas al cabo de siglos de exclusión. Delante de este cuadro, los autores hacen un contraste entre las estrategias posíbles de “perdón y olvido “ o de “justicia y reparación”. De la formulación de políticas de protección y garantía de derechos hasta su efectivación, hay un recorrido complejo y, a veces, azaroso. Siempre habrá presiones y, ocasionalmente, abusos y distorciones que son habilmente aprovechados por los enemigos de la política pública y defensores del Estado mínimo. Los autores creen que deben ser fomentados y creados espacios de diálogo para la realización de debates que contribuyan a superar las grandes dicotomías y tensiones dialécticas entre: aculturación versus preservación; etnología tradicional versus antropología en la multiculturalidad; etnopolítica versus resistencia étnica; reconocimiento versus reificación excluyente; identidad hegemónica de nación versus identidades colectivas particulares, entre otros.

    Full Text Available L'Inde dispose de ressources énergétiques importantes et sa production pétrolière devrait lui permettre, à moyen sinon à court terme, d'être indépendante de l'étranger pour son approvisionnement en pétrole brut, grâce au champ offshore de Bombay High. La capacité de raffinage se développe en conséquence mais il y a un net déséquilibre entre la production et la consommation de kérosène et de carburant diesel, dont le déficit s'aggrave progressivement : environ 25 % de ces produits ont été importés en 1982. Pour réduire ce déséquilibre, il faudrait réorienter la consommation vers les fractions légères ou mettre en place des unités d'hydrocraquage des fractions lourdes. India possesses extensive energy resources, and its oil production should enable it, in the medium if not long term, to be independent of foreign supplies for its crude oil thanks to the Bombay High offshore field. Its refining capacity is developing as a result of this, but there is a clearcut imbalance between the production and consumption of kerosene and diesel fuel, with a progressively increasing deficit. About 25% of these products were imported in 1982. To reduce this imbalance, either con-sumption must be reoriented toward light fractions, or hydrocracking plants for heavy fractions must be installed.

    Full Text Available La política ambiental en México ya es parte de la agenda de seguridad nacional, sin embargo, uno de sus instrumentos de planeación clave es el OET (Ordenamiento Ecológico del Territorio, el cual no ha logrado el impacto previsto. Se propone a los pueblos y territorios indígenas de Sonora como sector estratégico para la implementación de los OET, para lo cual se considera necesario profundizar en su problemática actual. Por ello, se realiza un análisis socioambiental de los complejos bioculturales de Sonora, a partir del marco de reflexión de la ecología política y la perspectiva biocultural. Esto se logra a partir de un análisis interdisciplinario donde se conjugan epistemologías y metodologías de los campos de las ciencias sociales y de la ecología. El análisis socioambiental se organiza a partir de dos grandes temas: la territorialidad y la comunidad indígena contemporánea. Se concluye que el formato actual de los OET es poco operativo, por lo que se dan recomendaciones para eficientar su implementación. Por último, se resalta la importancia de la atención de los complejos bioculturales, en primera instancia como un tema de justicia ambiental, así como por su capacidad para incidir a favor de los temas globales ambientales, como el cambio climático y la disponibilidad y calidad del agua.

    The purpose of the project, EFP06 - Photovoltaics integrated in an industrialised building process (SOLIND), has been to examine the possibilities for PV (photovoltaics) in an industrialized building process. The project is an information gathering and development project with basis in knowledge about the possibilities for PV in relation to specific housing projects in Skanska Bolig A/S, including BoKlok, developed in cooperation with IKEA. During the project a workshop with participating architectural students has been carried through resulting in detailed concepts. The concepts have in general terms been introduced nationally to the press and were invited to a poster presentation at the world's largest PV conference. In addition to this, a number of prototypes are produced together with other presentation material. The projects has been divided into three phases. The report is divided into these three phases. 1) Knowledge gathering and unravelling 2) Analysis, development and evaluation, workshop for students. 3) Promotion and demonstration of results The main results are: 4) The project has resulted in increased knowledge about the possibilities with photovoltaics in industrialized building processes. 5) A number of concepts have been developed to fit PV in the project phase of an industrialized building process. 6) The most promising concepts has been demonstrated as prototypes in different scale together with other presentation materials The project continues in SOL-IND2, with the purpose to prepare and carry out an integration of a PV system in an industrialized building process. A subsidy is granted in 2008 from the EFP to prepare the construction. (au)

Objetivo: Identificar el estado nutricional y aspectos alimentarios en mujeres indígenas de tres comunidades del Departamento de Presidente Hayes, Chaco Paraguayo. Metodología: Estudio observacional de diseño transversal con componente analítico, que incluyó a 81 mujeres de 15 a 44 años de edad, de las etnias Maká y Toba Qom. Previo consentimiento informado, se realizó la valoración nutricional y la entrevista para obtener los datos sociodemográficos y alimentarios. Resultados: Las mujeres indígenas presentaron una frecuencia de sobrepeso de 30,8% y obesidad del 21,0%, mientras que el 1,2 % presentó desnutrición. No encontramos diferencia significativa entre las etnias, en relación al sobrepeso y obesidad, (p>0,05. Observamos que las indígenas tenían una alta ingesta de frutas, azúcares y mieles. El 87 y 88% de las mujeres indígenas de ambas etnias estudiadas refirieron no consumir lácteos y derivados y entre 65 y 69% refirieron no consumir verduras. Conclusiones: Observamos un elevado porcentaje de obesidad y sobrepeso, un bajo consumo de lácteos y verduras y un alto consumo de azúcares, relacionados posiblemente a cambios en los aspectos alimentarios y sus costumbres, influenciados por la cercanía a las zonas urbanas y el acceso a alimentos de menor precio y mayor contenido energético.

    Full Text Available Resumo O presente artigo tem por objetivo apresentar uma proposta de fomento às cadeias produtivas das indústrias criativas no nordeste do Brasil, na perspectiva de uma discussão acerca de modelos alternativos de desenvolvimento regional. Para concretizar esse propósito, foi realizada uma pesquisa do tipo bibliográfica em livros, artigos de periódicos e documentos eletrônicos. O estudo inicia-se com a reflexão sobre os significados do desenvolvimento e suas conexões com a criatividade e a inovação. A pesquisa está estruturada em dois grandes eixos: o primeiro trata do conceito de indústrias criativas e do relato de suas potencialidades na geração de impactos econômicos, culturais, sociais e tecnológicos positivos na alavancagem do comércio doméstico e externo de bens e serviços criativos; o segundo apresenta uma discussão sobre desenvolvimento local e regional a partir do conceito de ‘bacia criativa’ com vistas a um novo enfoque territorial do nordeste brasileiro. A partir desses eixos, é proposto o Programa Nordeste Criativo que se constitui de duas linhas de ação fundamentais: o primeiro refere-se à estruturação e operacionalização de um o Observatório das Indústrias Criativas do Nordeste (OICNE voltado a produção e difusão do conhecimento sobre a economia criativa da região; o segundo diz respeito à criação e operacionalização dos Birôs de Negócios Criativos (BNC, ou seja, espaços físicos para o fomento de empreendimentos criativos sustentáveis e fortalecimento da cadeia produtiva das indústrias criativas. Assim, este estudo vem contribuir para a construção de um novo pensamento sobre o nordeste brasileiro. Por um lado, a institucionalização do Observatório das Indústrias Criativas se propõe a identificar o potencial criativo daquela região; do outro, os Birôs de Negócios Criativos objetivam consolidar as cadeias produtivas das indústrias criativas, enfatizando a profissionaliza

    Anesthesiology societies have issued various guidelines on preoperative fasting since 1990, not only to decrease the incidence of lung aspiration and anesthetic morbidity, but also to increase patient comfort prior to anesthesia. Some of these societies have been updating their guidelines, as such that, since 2010, we now have 2 evidence-based preoperative fasting guidelines available. In this article, an attempt is made to review these updated guidelines, as well as the current instructions for more controversial patients such as infants, the obese, and a particular type of ophthalmic surgery.

    In the past years, many (randomized) trials have been performed comparing the treatment strategies for lupus nephritis. In 2012, these data were incorporated in six different guidelines for treating lupus nephritis. These guidelines are European, American and internationally based, with one separate guideline for children. They offer information on different aspects of the management of lupus nephritis including induction and maintenance treatment of the different histological classes, adjunctive treatment, monitoring of the patient, definitions of response and relapse, indications for (repeat) renal biopsy, and additional challenges such as the presence of vascular complications, the pregnant SLE patient, treatment in children and adolescents and considerations about end-stage renal disease and transplantation. In this review, we summarize the guidelines, determine the common ground between them, highlight the differences and discuss recent literature. © The Author 2015.

    Full Text Available The objective was to analyze the relationship between socioeconomic status and age at menarche among indigenous and non-indigenous girls in the Araucanía Region of Chile, controlling for nutritional status and mother's age at menarche. A total of 8,624 randomly selected girls from 168 schools were screened, resulting in the selection of 207 indigenous and 200 non-indigenous girls who had recently experienced menarche. Age at menarche was 149.6±10.7 months in the indigenous group and 146.6±10.8 months in the non-indigenous group. Among the non-indigenous, the analysis showed no significant association between age at menarche and socioeconomic status. In the indigenous group, age at menarche among girls with low socioeconomic status was 5.4 months later than among those with higher socioeconomic status. There were no differences in nutritional status according to socioeconomic level. Obesity was associated with earlier menarche. Menarche occurred earlier than in previous generations. An inverse relationship between socioeconomic status and age at menarche was seen in the indigenous group only; low socioeconomic status was associated with delayed menarche, regardless of nutritional status or mother's age at menarche.El objetivo fue analizar la relación entre nivel socioeconómico y edad de menarquia en adolescentes indígenas y no indígenas de la Región de la Araucanía, Chile, controlando el efecto del estado nutricional, y la edad de menarquia de las madres.

    Full Text Available The paper presents the results of an exploratory approach aimed at extending the ranking procedures normally used in studying the socioeconomics determinants of smart growth at the regional level.   Most of these studies adopt a methodological procedure which essentially consists of the following steps: a identification of the pertinent elementary indicators according to the study objectives; b data selection and processing; c combination of the elementary indicators by multivariate statistical techniques aimed at obtaining a robust synthetic index to rank the observation units. In the procedure a relational dimension is mainly subsumed in the system oriented perspective adopted in selecting the indicators which would best represent the system determinants depending on the goals of the analysis (step a.  In order to get deeper insights into the smartness profile of the European regions, this study makes an effort to account of the relational dimension also in steps b and c of the procedure. The novelties of the proposed approach are twofold. First, by computing region-to-region distances associated with the selected indicators it extends the conventional ranking procedure (step c. Second, it uses a relational database (step b, dealing with the regional participation to the FP7-ICT project, to modify the distances and investigate its impact on the interpretation of the regional positioning.  The main results of this exercise seem to suggest that regional collaborations would have a positive role in regional convergence process. By providing an opportunity to get contacts with the areas endowed with a comparatively more robust smartness profile, regions may have a chance to enhance their own smartness profile.

    Full Text Available Ce travail essaie d'analyser le système du tribut en Equateur depuis sa création légale il ne se borne pas a en faire une simple description mais montre les relations entre l'aspect tributaire de la population indigène et la société coloniale et celle des premières années de la République, afin d'aboutir à une explication du système. On entend par organisation sociale d'un territoire donné le type de ses relations structurales, économiques, juridiques et politiques d'où la première partie du travail consacrée à l'éclaircissement de cette réalité pour mieux poser le problème du tribut. Dans la deuxième partie sont présentés l'origine, le développement, les objectifs, l'évolution et les implications structurales du tribut. Au niveau méthodologique on a utilisé comme thème central le tribut indigène et on a tenté de reconstituer autour de cette institution les étapes du processus de domination de la Colonie et du premier tiers de la période indépendante ceci a été fait de la façon la plus objective possible afin d'aborder le caractère de l'organisation sociale équatorienne. Enfin on aboutit a une explication du processus d'affaiblissement du tribut qui disparaît totalement au niveau de la loi sans que cela signifie que l'indigène équatorien ait été libéré de la domination des deux groupes, blanc et métis. L'histoire de l'oppression séculaire a été le point de départ de quelques transformations sociales et sera la pierre de touche d'une transformation globale des sociétés sud-américaines. El presente trabajo intenta analizar la tributación en el caso ecuatoriano desde su aparición hasta su abolición legal. El desarrollo de éste no pretende ser una simple descripción, sino una interrelación entre el aspecto tributario de la población indígena con la formación social colonial y de los primeros años de la república, a fin de que en ese enfoque pueda tener su explicación.

    The American Cancer Society (ACS) reviewed and updated its guideline on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination based on a methodologic and content review of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) HPV vaccination recommendations. A literature review was performed to supplement the evidence considered by the ACIP and to address new vaccine formulations and recommendations as well as new data on population outcomes since publication of the 2007 ACS guideline. The ACS Guideline Development Group determined that the evidence supports ACS endorsement of the ACIP recommendations, with one qualifying statement related to late vaccination. The ACS recommends vaccination of all children at ages 11 and 12 years to protect against HPV infections that lead to several cancers and precancers. Late vaccination for those not vaccinated at the recommended ages should be completed as soon as possible, and individuals should be informed that vaccination may not be effective at older ages.

    Full Text Available Why are some start-ups more successful than other companies? In view of this question, this paper deconstructs the growth mechanism of the present new Chinese ventures from the perspective of Internet entrepreneurship and points out that exploratory orientation and business model innovation play an important role in the new ventures growth process. Based on this, through the investigation of 210 start-ups in China, the research found that: (1 exploratory orientation is in a positive relationship with the growth of new ventures; (2 business model innovation plays a mediated role between exploratory orientation and new business growth; (3 Internet embeddedness is found as a moderator in the relationship between exploratory orientation and the growth of new ventures. This finding will not only help further deepen the new research in the new venture growth process but also help to further expand exploratory orientation, business model innovation and the important role of the Internet embeddedness in the growth of new ventures.

    Extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is frequently a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. It is a common opportunistic infection in people living with HIV/AIDS and other immunocompromised states such as diabetes mellitus and malnutrition. There is a paucity of data from clinical trials in EPTB and most of the information regarding diagnosis and management is extrapolated from pulmonary TB. Further, there are no formal national or international guidelines on EPTB. To address these concerns, Indian EPTB guidelines were developed under the auspices of Central TB Division and Directorate of Health Services, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. The objective was to provide guidance on uniform, evidence-informed practices for suspecting, diagnosing and managing EPTB at all levels of healthcare delivery. The guidelines describe agreed principles relevant to 10 key areas of EPTB which are complementary to the existing country standards of TB care and technical operational guidelines for pulmonary TB. These guidelines provide recommendations on three priority areas for EPTB: (i) use of Xpert MTB/RIF in diagnosis, (ii) use of adjunct corticosteroids in treatment, and (iii) duration of treatment. The guidelines were developed using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) criteria, which were evidence based, and due consideration was given to various healthcare settings across India. Further, for those forms of EPTB in which evidence regarding best practice was lacking, clinical practice points were developed by consensus on accumulated knowledge and experience of specialists who participated in the working groups. This would also reflect the needs of healthcare providers and develop a platform for future research.

    With rapidly changing dietary environment, dietary guidelines for Koreans were revised and relevant action guides were developed. First, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee was established with experts and government officials from the fields of nutrition, preventive medicine, health promotion, agriculture, education and environment. The Committee set dietary goals for Koreans aiming for a better nutrition state of all after a thorough review and analysis of recent information related to nutritional status and/or problems of Korean population, changes in food production/supply, disease pattern, health policy and agricultural policy. Then, the revised dietary guidelines were proposed to accomplish these goals in addition to 6 different sets of dietary action guides to accommodate specific nutrition and health problems of respective age groups. Subsequently, these guidelines and guides were subjected to the focus group review, consumer perception surveys, and a public hearing for general and professional comments. Lastly, the language was clarified in terms of public understanding and phraseology. The revised Dietary guidelines for Koreans are as follows: eat a variety of grains, vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, poultry and dairy products; choose salt-preserved foods less, and use less salt when you prepare foods; increase physical activity for a healthy weight, and balance what you eat with your activity; enjoy every meal, and do not skip breakfast; if you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation; prepare foods properly, and order sensible amounts; enjoy our rice-based diet.

  14. Improving healthcare practice behaviors: an exploratory study identifying effective and ineffective behaviors in healthcare.

    Van Fleet, David D; Peterson, Tim O

    2016-01-01

    The purpose of this paper is to present the results of exploratory research designed to develop an awareness of healthcare behaviors, with a view toward improving the customer satisfaction with healthcare services. It examines the relationship between healthcare providers and their consumers/patients/clients. The study uses a critical incident methodology, with both effective and ineffective behavioral specimens examined across different provider groups. The effects of these different behaviors on what Berry (1999) identified as the common core values of service organizations are examined, as those values are required to build a lasting service relationship. Also examined are categories of healthcare practice based on the National Quality Strategy priorities. The most obvious is the retrospective nature of the method used. How accurate are patient or consumer memories? Are they capable of making valid judgments of healthcare experiences (Berry and Bendapudi, 2003)? While an obvious limitation, such recollections are clearly important as they may be paramount in following the healthcare practitioners' instructions, loyalty for repeat business, making recommendations to others and the like. Further, studies have shown retrospective reports to be accurate and useful (Miller et al., 1997). With this information, healthcare educators should be in a better position to improve the training offered in their programs and practitioners to better serve their customers. The findings would indicate that the human values of excellence, innovation, joy, respect and integrity play a significant role in building a strong service relationship between consumer and healthcare provider. Berry (1999) has argued that the overriding importance in building a lasting service business is human values. This exploratory study has shown how critical incident analysis can be used to determine both effective and ineffective practices of different medical providers. It also provides guidelines as

O comportamento oportunista foi operacionalizado a partir dos indicadores propostos por Carson, Madhok e Wu (2006. A racionalidade limitada foi estudada na perspectiva de Simon (1957, 1980, e a operacionalização do constructo incerteza se amparou nos trabalhos de Knight (2002, Duncan (1972, Gordon e Narayanan (1984, Milliken (1987 e Milliken (1990. Os dados coletados junto a 111 gestores da indústria de transformação no Brasil, selecionados na base da Federação das Indústrias do Estado de São Paulo (Fiesp, foram submetidos à modelagem por equações estruturais. Os resultados apontam que a racionalidade limitada e a especificidade dos ativos influenciam positivamente o comportamento oportunista dos agentes econômicos, confirmando os argumentos da teoria dos custos de transação, ou seja, quanto maior a especificidade dos ativos, menores as possibilidades de reaproveitamento do investimento, tornando a continuidade do relacionamento valiosa e alvo potencial de ações oportunistas. Os resultados também confirmaram a multidimensionalidade do constructo incerteza, reforçando os argumentos teóricos da perspectiva da incerteza da informação. Tal constatação, aliada às definições de Simon (1957, 1980, possibilitou a operacionalização do constructo racionalidade limitada a partir da incerteza de efeito e da incerteza de resposta, bem como a constatação da importância dessa premissa na explicação da existência dos custos de transa

    Somatic cell nuclear transfer allows generation of genetically identical animals using donor cells derived from animals with particular traits. To date, few studies have investigated whether or not these cloned dogs will show identical behavior patterns. To address this question, learning, memory and exploratory patterns were examined using six cloned dogs with identical nuclear genomes. The variance of total incorrect choice number in the Y-maze test among cloned dogs was significantly lower than that of the control dogs. There was also a significant decrease in variance in the level of exploratory activity in the open fields test compared to age-matched control dogs. These results indicate that cloned dogs show similar cognitive and exploratory patterns, suggesting that these behavioral phenotypes are related to the genotypes of the individuals.

    Errors in clinical practice guidelines may translate into errors in real-world clinical practice. The best way to eliminate these errors is to understand how they are generated, thus enabling the future development of methods to catch errors made in creating the guideline before publication. We examined the process by which a medical expert from the American College of Physicians (ACP) created clinical algorithms from narrative guidelines, as a case study. We studied this process by looking at intermediate versions produced during the algorithm creation. We identified and analyzed errors that were generated at each stage, categorized them using Knuth's classification scheme, and studied patterns of errors that were made over the set of algorithm versions that were created. We then assessed possible explanations for the sources of these errors and provided recommendations for reducing the number of errors, based on cognitive theory and on experience drawn from software engineering methodologies.

    European military transfusion services follow operational guidelines established by their respective national health systems and conform with European Union directives and NATO standards as applicable to member countries. Certain features are common to all of these standards, especially the pre-selection of volunteer, almost exclusively unpaid donors. NATO requirements are very close to European guidelines, with the exception that NATO permits the use of blood products collected in emergency conditions in theater when circumstances allow no better option. Blood product traceability exists for every country but is not always centralized or computerized. Serious adverse event reporting relies on national haemovigilance networks. Military considerations become important mainly in overseas operations, where the overall policy is to implement the relevant national, European or NATO guidelines with adjustments made for unique wartime circumstances and the risk/benefit ratio for the individual patient needing a transfusion.

    Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are intended to improve mental, behavioral, and physical health by promoting clinical practices that are based on the best available evidence. The American Psychological Association (APA) is committed to generating patient-focused CPGs that are scientifically sound, clinically useful, and informative for psychologists, other health professionals, training programs, policy makers, and the public. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) 2011 standards for generating CPGs represent current best practices in the field. These standards involve multidisciplinary guideline development panels charged with generating recommendations based on comprehensive systematic reviews of the evidence. The IOM standards will guide the APA as it generates CPGs that can be used to inform the general public and the practice community regarding the benefits and harms of various treatment options. CPG recommendations are advisory rather than compulsory. When used appropriately, high-quality guidelines can facilitate shared decision making and identify gaps in knowledge.

  4. Guideline Implementation: Surgical Smoke Safety.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fencl, Jennifer L

    2017-05-01

    Research conducted during the past four decades has demonstrated that surgical smoke generated from the use of energy-generating devices in surgery contains toxic and biohazardous substances that present risks to perioperative team members and patients. Despite the increase in information available, however, perioperative personnel continue to demonstrate a lack of knowledge of these hazards and lack of compliance with recommendations for evacuating smoke during surgical procedures. The new AORN "Guideline for surgical smoke safety" provides guidance on surgical smoke management. This article focuses on key points of the guideline to help perioperative personnel promote smoke-free work environments; evacuate surgical smoke; and develop education programs and competency verification tools, policies and procedures, and quality improvement initiatives related to controlling surgical smoke. Perioperative RNs should review the complete guideline for additional information and for guidance when writing and updating policies and procedures. Copyright © 2017 AORN, Inc.

    2014-05-01

    The revised guideline of 2013 is an update of the 2005 guideline "venous leg ulcer". In this special project four separate guidelines (venous leg ulcer, varicose veins, compression therapy and deep venous disorders) were revised and developed simultaneously. A meeting was held including representatives of any organisation involved in venous disease management including patient organizations and health insurance companies. Eighteen clinical questions where defined, and a new strategy was used to accelerate the process. This resulted in two new and two revised guidelines within one year. The guideline committee advises use of the C of the CEAP classification as well as the Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS) and a Quality of life (QoL) score in the assessment of clinical signs. These can provide insight into the burden of disease and the effects of treatment as experienced by the patient. A duplex ultrasound should be performed in every patient to establish the underlying aetiology and to evaluate the need for treatment (which is discussed in a separate guideline). The use of the TIME model for describing venous ulcers is recommended. There is no evidence for antiseptic or antibiotic wound care products except for a Cochrane review in which some evidence is presented for cadexomer iodine. Signs of infection are the main reason for the use of oral antibiotics. When the ulcer fails to heal the use of oral aspirin and pentoxifylline can be considered as an adjunct. For the individual patient, the following aspects should be considered: the appearance of the ulcer (amount of exudate) according to the TIME model, the influence of wound care products on moisturising the wound, frequency of changing compression bandages, pain and allergies. The cost of the dressings should also be considered. Education and training of patients t improves compliance with compression therapy but does not influence wound healing rates. © The Author(s) 2014 Reprints and permissions: sagepub.co.uk/journalsPermissions.nav.

    Full Text Available The aim of research on language for specific purposes is to explain how particular forms of the language are used in any given context. Nowadays, banks need to offer their services and products via Internet in order to keep themselves competitive in the current globalized market, as it happens with any other industry or academic field. Therefore, research on specific language is necessary for any professional involved in that given particular area in order to understand and reproduce texts of the same nature. This paper introduces a bibliography review about the features that determine the language used by banks in their websites. This paper begins with the definitions of ‘bank’ and ‘banking’ and moves towards the principles of ‘Internet banking’, specifying some general and specific features of its particular language forms and most common uses. This introduction towards the language used by banks on the Internet is expected to be used as some basic guidelines for professionals interested in the field of banks and linguistics to deal with this variety of language for specific purposes.

Trata-se de uma pesquisa realizada segundo a metodologia qualitativa, sendo utilizados como procedimentos a pesquisa documental e a entrevista semiestruturada. A análise discursivo-interpretativa do documento Plano Nacional de Educação (2000, 2010 e da entrevista semiestruturada feita com a vice-coordenadora de educação indígena da SECADI evidenciou que, historicamente, a escola afirmou a exclusão social dos povos indígenas e, hoje, visa prepará-los para relações de negociação cultural, de constituição de novas posições identitárias e de valorização de sua diferença. A investigação efetuada contribuiu com o estudo das políticas multiculturais de educação brasileiras visando ao desenvolvimento da Psicologia Social, numa perspectiva crítica.

Material y métodos. Se realizó un estudio transversal en 15 asentamientos urbanos marginales de Chiapas. La muestra incluyó a mujeres en edad reproductiva recientemente embarazadas (n=230. Se estimó la frecuencia de embarazos no deseados a partir del reporte del sentimiento y reacción de las mujeres embarazadas y de su cónyuge frente al diagnóstico del embarazo. Se realizó análisis bivariado y multivariado. Resultados. Más del 80.0% de las mujeres dijeron conocer y haber usado métodos anticonceptivos, pero solamente 49.6% de los embarazos fue deseado por ambos padres; 11.2% fue rechazado por ambos y en el resto hubo indiferencia o discordancia en la pareja, con diferencias en la magnitud y momento del ciclo de vida en mujeres mestizas e indígenas. Conclusiones. Es necesario considerar el embarazo no deseado como un problema de salud pública que adquiere diferente magnitud y características en la población indígena y mestiza.

Até 1988 eram apenas 3 (três terras reconhecidas no estado, passados 20 anos são pelo menos 17 novas terras além da revisão dos limites nas terras já existentes. Esta mudança no quadro fundiário está intimamente relacionada ao aumento populacional, seja pelo crescimento vegetativo expressivo, seja pelo reconhecimento de comunidades e grupos ignorados pelas políticas públicas até então.

Y es que los objetivos de ambas no son coincidentes, y mejor dicho son conflictivas, por provenir de culturas, ideologías, sistemas económicos, concepción del  mundo muy opuestos. En vez de buscar una integración y valoración positiva y enriquecedora de ambos ''mundos''. el sistema de educación nacional ha encubierto un sistema  de  dominación  cultural,  que  sin  duda  ha desencadenado consecuencias como: aculturación, pérdida de identidad. dependencia económica. migración, etc. En el otro lado, la comunidad resiste al etnocidio. con los elementos que ha podido preservar,  cual más o menos integro: la tecnología, los sistemas de ayuda mutua. las costumbres, la Iengua, etc.

O desafio para o Estado brasileiro e para as organizações farmacêuticas nacionais é participar desse segmento em franca expansão e com efeitos importantes nas políticas públicas de medicamentos. As informações sobre o segmento encontram-se dispersas, assim, os objetivos do artigo são descrever o mercado no Brasil e apontar os principais debates sobre a inserção da indústria nacional na produção de produtos de base biotecnológica. A metodologia do artigo constituiu-se em compilação das informações dispersas em vários sítios de instituições públicas e privadas e organização dos assuntos considerados relevantes ao entendimento do mercado e suas polêmicas. O estudo mostrou que as polêmicas legais, científicas e regulatórias em torno da produção nacional de biofármacos têm como base a disputa por um grande mercado potencial formado pelas compras governamentais e estratégias organizacionais de operar em mercados monopolizados.

Foram estudados três casos: o projeto dos jatos ERJ 170 / 190, da Embraer, e os equipamentos de raio X e da plataforma SX, da Siemens. Seu objetivo foi expandir a compreensão sobre o conceito de integração de sistemas no que se refere às atividades de projetos. Adotou-se a metodologia de estudo de caso. Os dados foram levantados por meio de entrevistas e análise documental nas duas empresas. Foi possível constatar como estão estruturadas as redes interorganizacionais das empresas estudadas tendo como base os tipos de acoplamentos propostos pela teoria e verificados por esse estudo.

Pero el repunte del número de deportaciones de2007 no se había sentido tan fuertemente. Tampoco la depresión económica en los Estados Unidos se había dejado sentir, como a fines de 2007 y principios de 2008.Por un lado, el cambio de coyuntura hace que los resultados de esta investigación no correspondan exactamente al momento actual. No es un artículo periodístico.

A cultura de massa será vista como propiciando o prazer substancialmente ilusório de satisfazer a ânsia de engrandecimento do ego, no mesmo instante em que mantém o indivíduo atado às tendências inerciais de unificação social.The goal of the text is to analyze the critical dimension of the cultural industry concept as proposed by Adorno and Horkheimer, starting from the psychoanalytical notion of narcissism such as Adorno has interpreted it. The mass culture is to be seen as offering the radically illusory pleasure of satisfying the anxiety of magnification of the ego, exactly in the moment when it keeps the individual within the inertial tendencies of the social unity.

    El propósito es realizar un trabajo descriptivo basado principalmente en fuentes secundarias sobre las transformaciones ocurridas en la organización social y en las formas familiares entre algunas comunidades indígenas colombianas, ilustrándolo a través de varios grupos. El interés del trabajo reside en el hecho de que en un país, declarado por la constitución como pluriétnico y  multicultural, estas formas particulares deben ser tenidas en cuenta en las políticas estatales y en el diseño de programas de atención, que muy probablemente lleven a establecer una particularidad en cuanto al tipo de soluciones para estos núcleos de población. Una aproximación explicativa tiene que ver con las relaciones inter-étnicas, que se han dado en el proceso histórico a un nivel general y de las más recientes derivados del desarrollo de un sistema capitalista dependiente, y su impacto sobre la población indigena en en particular sobre las relacionesde parentesco y las formas familiares.

    Full Text Available Los habitantes de la comunidad indígena Camaritagua (La Pedrera-Amazonas, Colombia, utilizan 129 especies de plantas medicinales en sus prácticas médicas tradicionales. La mayor representación se obtuvo para las familias Araceae, Rubiaceae y Piperaceae, y para los géneros Piper, Protium,
    y Anthurium. El 80% de las especies encontradas tienen un origen neotropical, así mismo el 16% son cultivadas; ambos datos muestran el bajo nivel de sincretismo cultural que ha experimentado Camaritagua en cuanto al uso de las plantas medicinales. El paisaje que mayor número de especies
    presenta (65%, es el bosque Sucesional, éste resultado promueve la posibilidad de hacer productivas estas áreas disminuyendo el uso del bosque Primario permitiendo así su conservación. El 46,5% de las especies encontradas en este estudio ya habían sido citadas por otros autores como medicinales, señalando hacia dónde deben conducirse las investigaciones fitoquímicas.

    Full Text Available Um grande desafio para a indústria de alimentos atualmente, é atender aos anseios do consumidor, no sentido de oferecer alimentos processados, livre de aditivos químicos e submetidos a tratamentos térmicos cada vez mais brandos, a fim de que estes sejam o mais natural possível, garantindo a segurança microbiológica destes produtos. Alguns patógenos alimentares, como a Listeria monocytogenes e Escherichia coli O157:H7, bactérias extremamente nocivas à saúde, podendo levar à abortos e até mesmo ao óbito, emergiram à medida que houve um maior consumo de produtos refrigerados. Assim, há um crescente interesse pelos chamados bioconservantes alimentares. As bacteriocinas são peptídios com atividade antimicrobiana, ribossomicamente sintetizados e secretados por bactérias produzidas por diferentes cepas, principalmente as do gênero Bacillus. Essas bacteriocinas têm a capacidade de destruir ou inibir o crescimento de outras bactérias taxonomicamente relacionadas com a cepa produtora. Uma vez que as bactérias lácticas estão presentes naturalmente em produtos fermentados, suas bacteriocinas são aceitas pela legislação e pelos consumidores como aditivos alimentares. Esse trabalho de revisão tem como objetivo destacar o uso de bacteriocinas como bioconservantes em alimentos.

  9. Guidelines for prevention in psychology.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2014-04-01

    The effectiveness of prevention to enhance human functioning and reduce psychological distress has been demonstrated. From infancy through adulthood, access to preventive services and interventions is important to improve the quality of life and human functioning and reduce illness and premature death. The importance of prevention is consistent with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Even with the increased focus on prevention, psychology training programs rarely require specific courses on prevention. In particular, conceptualizations about best practices in prevention, particularly at the environmental level, are lacking. Therefore, psychologists engaged in prevention can benefit from a set of guidelines that address and inform prevention practices. Accordingly, the Guidelines for Prevention in Psychology are intended to "inform psychologists, the public, and other interested parties regarding desirable professional practices" in prevention. The Prevention Guidelines are recommended based on their potential benefits to the public and the professional practice of psychology. They support prevention as an important area of practice, research, and training for psychologists. The Guidelines give increased attention to prevention within APA, encouraging psychologists to become involved with preventive activities relevant to their area of practice.

  20. A parallel guideline development and formalization strategy to improve the quality of clinical practice guidelines.

    Clinical practice guidelines often contain ambiguities, inconsistencies, and logical errors that hamper implementation of these guidelines in practice. As guideline formalization is useful to verify the logical structure, consistency, and completeness of guidelines, several authors have argued that the formalization of guidelines concurrent with their development may improve their quality. However, experiences with such a parallel guideline development and formalization approach have not yet been reported. The goal of this study was to develop such a strategy and evaluate its application in practice. Existing methodologies for guideline development and guideline formalization were analyzed and used as a basis to develop a strategy in which guideline formalization is performed concurrently with guideline development. The developed strategy was applied in the development of a clinical practice guideline for cardiac rehabilitation. A parallel guideline development and formalization strategy was developed that intertwines the processes of guideline development and guideline formalization. Central assets are early involvement of guideline formalization specialists and formalization tools, cooperation between guideline authors and guideline formalization specialists in the development of clinical algorithms, access to domain knowledge when formalization identifies inconsistencies or omissions, and formal verification of the guideline model prior to guideline dissemination. This strategy was applied in the development of a guideline for cardiac rehabilitation and helped to identify several vague and inconsistent recommendations and impracticabilities in the narrative guidelines that could be resolved before publication. In addition, the strategy ensured consistency between the narrative and formalized guideline. Based on our experience, formalizing a guideline concurrent with its development is feasible in practice and we recommend applying such a strategy as it can be
