    Spall, H.


    Sir Harold Jeffreys is a world authority in theoretical geophyiscs. hew as born in Northumbria (northeast of England) and educated at Armstrong College (now the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne) and Cambridge University. He is now a Senior Fellow of St.John's College, Cambridge. He has published over 300 scientific papers and is the author of 7 books, including Theory of Probability and Mathematical Physics (with his wife, Lady Bertha Swirles Jeffreys). Sir Harold has made innumerable theoretical contributions to seismology. Many of these are documented in his book The Earth, which has been published in six editions. His papers have recently been collated by Gordon and Breach (Publishers) into six volumes, Collected Papers on Sir Harold Jeffreys on Geophyiscs and other Sciences. Some idea of the breadth of this research can be seen from the individual volume titles: "Theoretical and Observational Seismology," "Observational Seismology," "Gravity," "Dissipation of Energy and Thermal History," "Astronomy and Geophysics," and "Matematics, Probability and Miscellaneious Other Sciences."

  7. Harold Pinter in Slovene Translation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Darja Hribar


    Full Text Available This article examines the translation of Harold Pinter’s most notable stylistic peculiarities into Slovene, illustrating its main points with examples taken from his play The Homecoming. The findings demonstrate above all a marked degree of non-observance of the special verbal pattern (special cohesion of the originals, a failure to convey Pinter’s special configuration of meaning (special coherence, and a disregard for internal unifying coincidences. It argues that the Slovene translations of Pinter rely mostly on traditional theories of meaning and of language norms, thus preventing the reproduction of those emotional and psychological actions of Pinter’s characters which are usually not expressed by means of the rhetorical, informative elements of his dialogue, but by its form and sonority, i. e. the length, strength, and level of articulation of verbal expression. This blurs Pinter’s famous logic of emotion, narrows the proverbial openness and conceptual uncertainty of his plays, and limits their potential vitality in translation. Taking into account current drama and theatre translation practices in Slovenia, i.e. the rarity of published drama translation and the dependence on a translated performance text for subsequent theatrical productions, the article argues that in such cases the drama translation should be retrospective, i.e. aiming at a maximum reconstruction of all relevant linguistic, stylistic, and textual properties of the original, leaving expressly subjective interventions in the text to the theatre practitioners.

  11. The collected economics articles of Harold Hotelling

    CERN Document Server


    In 1985 I first began my research on the life and work of Harold Hotel­ ling. That year, Harold Hotelling's widow had donated the collection of his private p:;tpers, correspondence and manuscripts to the Butler Library, Columbia University. This is a most appropriate place for them to reside, in that Hotelling's most productive period as an active researcher in eco­ nomics and statistics coincides with the years when he was Professor of Mathematical Economics at Columbia (1931-1946). The Hotelling Collection comprises some 13,000 separate items and contains numerous unpublished letters and manuscripts of great importance to historians of economics and statistics. In the course of the following year I was able, with the generous financial assistance of the Nuffield Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council, the British Academy and the University of Durham, to spend six weeks over the Easter period working on the collection. I returned to New York in September 1986 while on sabbatical leave from th...

  12. The aesthetics of Harold Pinter's dramatic art

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Šoškić Radoje V.


    Full Text Available The British playwright Harold Pinter (1930-2008 is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most extraordinary modern playwrights, with the writing career which spanned over fifty years. The world Pinter depicts in his dramas is deeply political, violent, malevolent, and absurd at the same time, and is certainly reflective of dread, the precarious condition inhabited by most of contemporary humanity. A whole gallery of Pinter's characters (in his early plays are not driven by ambition to make progress in such a world, they don't care to dispute the public arena, they are uninterested in changing the world for better or for worse. On the contrary, those characters are sad citizens of intimacy, fear, the horrific nature of which unmasks itself in claustrophobic rooms they are entrapped in, where power games, domination, and the struggle for liberation originate. Pinter's characters are obsessed only with their own survival, governed by the 'territorial imperative'. The paper aims at analyzing thematic preoccupations, dramatic devices and major dramatic and poetic elements of Pinter's plays, with the emphasis on his connection with the 'Theatre of the Absurd'. The focus is also on the concept of the hidden violence of language and linguistic absurdity as used by Pinter.

  13. A note on Harold S. Diehl, randomization, and clinical trials. (United States)

    Waller, L A


    Harold S. Diehl and coworkers published results from a remarkable trial on the efficacy of vaccines for the common cold in 1938. The original report states that patients were assigned to treatment and control groups "at random." Diehl's study has been referred to as one of the first instances of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. No description of a formal randomization scheme is given in the 1938 report and an unpublished paper of Diehl's suggests the use of alternate assignment in the study.

    I. J.J. Spangenberg


    Full Text Available On the trail of Harold Heniy Rowley (1890-1969 H H Rowley can he described as an enigmatic Old Testament scholar. Hailed as one of the leading Old Testament biblical theologians of the forties and fifties, he was also criticized for his ‘middle-of-the-road’ conclusions. This article takes a brief look at his academic career and biblical scholarship, it is argued that he is an exponent of the biblical theology movement in his attempts to reconcile the results of the historical- critical method with the traditional creeds of Christianity. Unfortunately he was not very successful because he did not regard the results of New Testament historical-critical research seriously. He was reluctant to admit that there was a difference between the historical Jesus and Christ as proclaimed by the church. Perhaps there are a few lessons to be learned from his timidity.

  16. Theodore Harold Maiman and the invention of laser (United States)

    Rawicz, Andrew H.


    In his 1917 "On Quantum Theory of Radiation" paper Albert Einstein introduced the concept of amplification of radiation through stimulated emission with coherence. This concept had not been applied in practice until 1952 when Joseph Weber, followed by Townes, Basov and Prokhorov, developed the theory and started working on the construction of masers. The first maser was demonstrated by Townes' team in 1953. Many researchers began thinking about making an "optical maser", but the transition from centimeter to nanometer waves posed a problem. Well funded researchers in the USA and Soviet Union put their efforts into making an "optical maser". In May 16, 1960 an unknown and underfunded researcher, Theodore Harold Maiman, won the race and demonstrated a fully functional ruby laser. The scientific world was astonished by its simplicity and elegance. Maiman's short paper describing the invention appeared immediately in Nature magazine. This invention caused an avalanche of new laser developments followed by the growing number of applications in almost all fields of our lives. Ted Maiman died in 2007 in Vancouver, just 13 days before the 47th anniversary of the invention of the laser. The intention of this paper is to focus on the life of the scientific maverick and great man.

    Cataract surgery with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation has become the most common and most successful of all operations in medicine. Sir Harold Ridley's first cataract extraction with implantation of an IOL marked the beginning of a major change in the practice of ophthalmology. Millions of patients worldwide have benefited from Sir Ridley's invention, and are likely to continue to derive benefit from this device. However, the development of the IOL was not without its share of ups and downs. Sir Harold Ridley, the inventor of IOL, died at the age of 94, on 25 May 2001, and ophthalmology lost one of its greatest and most influential practitioners. We are happy that he lived to enjoy the fruits of his labour--to see the amazing improvements and the expansive growth that evolved in the cataract-IOL technique, from early and unsatisfactory operations in previous decades, to the superb results attainable today. The invention of the IOL has not been just the addition of one new form of treatment, but rather, Sir Harold's tiny disc-shaped sliver of plastic has changed the world so that our patients may better see it. This article presents a brief biographical sketch of Sir Harold and lists his major inventions and contributions to ophthalmology.

    Merve Aydoğdu


    Full Text Available Louis Althusser in his seminal essay “Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses” in Lenin and Philosophy and Other Essays (1970 discusses the ways through which a State dominates/subjugates its subjects by means of Repressive and Ideological State Apparatuses, the effects of which are traceable in Harold Pinter's 1984-play One for the Road. Within this scope, this paper seeks to examine Pinter's one-act play from an Althusserian point of view with a view to demonstrating the manipulative influence of ISAs and SA on the creation of subjects who would serve for the State.

  4. Sir Nicholas Harold Lloyd Ridley: 10 July 1906 - 25 May 2001. (United States)

    Apple, David J


    Sir Harold Ridley invented and refined the modern miracle of replacing lenses obscured by cataracts with plastic optical lenses, thus rendering a complete cataract cure. This operation, broadly termed the cataract-intraocular lens (IOL) operation, has since brought sight to many millions of people throughout the world, and continues to improve the quality of life of more than 10 million patients worldwide each year. Ridley not only launched this powerful and irreversible forward movement in the field of ophthalmology and the visual sciences, but through it he also helped give birth to the exciting and new field of artificial biodevice implantation as well as transplantation techniques now applied to many other organs and tissues of the body. He has therefore been credited with healing to create the relatively new specialty of biomedical engineering. Few of the millions of patients worldwide who now enjoy the benefits of the modern cataract - IOL operation are aware of the origin of this innovation. Indeed, few eye care professionals - even ophthalmic surgeons who implant them almost daily - are aware of the origin of the IOL - an invention that, as Harold himself liked to say, 'cured aphakia'. (The word aphakia comes from teh Greek, meaning absence of lens, the situation that occurs when a cataractous lens is surgically removed.)

  7. Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter in German: What’s Missing in Translation?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Renée von Paschen


    Full Text Available Several of Harold Pinter’s works have been adapted as screenplays and filmed. This paper investigates director Robert Altman’s TV movie The Dumb Waiter in comparison with the German dubbed version, Der stumme Diener, as well as the reception of Pinter’s play in German. The translation of Pinter’s dialogue into German involves stylistic aspects, such as Pinter’s dry, concise style, as well as the subliminal wit, sarcasm and irony. Humour is particularly difficult to translate, often involving compensation or transfer from one (cultural context to another. As one of the “comedies of menace”, The Dumb Waiter employs black humour and ironic wit to create threat and dramatic tension. The unknown threat is counterbalanced by “black comic relief”. The lack of a classical German tradition of black comedy problematizes the translation of Pinter’s dialogue, while the limits of audiovisual translation add additional hurdles.

  8. On the Threshold: Time and the Speaking Subject in Harold Pinter’s Silence

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Beatrice Nori


    Full Text Available The article investigates Harold Pinter’s play Silence from a linguistic and phenomenological point of view. Silence is probably one of the least studied – though one of the most difficult and compelling – of Pinter’s plays. The author iden­tifies the broken syntax and the combi­nation of utterances and silences as indicators of time and space shifts. She claims that the patchwork which appears from the structure of the play depicts the loss of logic, and that the abandonmen­t of chronological time in linguistic terms conveys the subjecti­ve, circular, and illogical elemen­t of the human experience of time. Characters’ bodies and utterances materialize both their own past recollections and their presen­t experiences. The presen­t work may be useful to theatre scholars as an example of drama as a portrayal of philosophical and linguistic theories about time and discourse.

  9. Emma Bovary, Hedda Gabler, and Harold Brodkey would not have lived without Charcot: hysteria in novels. (United States)

    Kaptein, A A


    Medical humanities is the interdisciplinary field of humanities (literature, philosophy, ethics, history, and religion), social science (anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, and sociology), and the arts (literature, theater, film, and visual arts), and their application to medical education and practice. In this chapter, the concept of 'hysteria' is put into a medical humanities perspective. We review the concept of hysteria concisely. Two novels and one autobiographical story are used as material in order to study how 'hysteria' is represented in literary work. Madame Bovary (Gustave Flaubert), Hedda Gabler (Henrik Ibsen), and A Story in an Almost Classical Mode (Harold Brodkey) were searched for elements that are characteristic of hysteria. Excessive emotion, dramatics, attention-seeking behavior, physical symptoms of unknown and unidentifiable organic causes, self-centered behavior, and flirtatious behavior are the six elements used to operationalize hysteria. It was found that these elements were present in both a quantitative and qualitative manner in the literary works examined. Acknowledging some limitations and suggesting some research areas and clinical implications, we conclude that literary works are useful in analyzing concepts in medicine. Also, more generally, using literary works seems to have a positive impact on readers, healthcare providers, and researchers in the healthcare domain. Studying novels and related literary work contributes to the body of knowledge of medical humanities.

  10. The Reception of Harold Pinter’s Plays in Slovenia between 1999 and 2014

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Urša Gavez


    Full Text Available Harold Pinter started his career with a conspicuous lack of success. He faced negative critical reviews of his early works, but his typical style eventually opened doors to new worlds in modern drama. On Slovene stages, Pinter’s plays also received a similarly modest welcome. The audience as well as the reviewers found his long pauses, silences and incoherent dialogue insufficiently engaging. One of the main reasons for this could have been their unfamiliarity with Pinter’s style, which eventually acquired its own adjective – ‘Pinteresque’. With time, Pinter’s popularity increased more rapidly on the world stages than in Slovenia, and today this playwright is not a stranger to the Slovene theatre. This article deals with Pinter on Slovene stages as well as the popular and critical reception of his plays. The period before 1999 was thoroughly analysed by Darja Hribar, while this study is the first to focus on the decade and a half following.

  11. The ex-illiterate brain: The critical period, cognitive reserve and HAROLD model

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maria Vania Silva Nunes

    Full Text Available Abstract The lifelong acquisition of cognitive skills shapes the biology of the brain. However, there are critical periods for the best use of the brain to process the acquired information. Objectives: To discuss the critical period of cognitive acquisition, the concept of cognitive reserve and the HAROLD (Hemispheric Asymmetry Reduction in Older adults model. Methods: Seven women who learned how to read and to write after the age of 50 (ex-illiterates and five women with 10 years of regular schooling (controls were submitted to a language recognition test while brain activity was being recorded using magnetoencephalography. Spoken words were delivered binaurally via two plastic tubs terminating in ear inserts, and recordings were made with a whole head magnetometer consisting of 148 magnetometer coils. Results: Both groups performed similarly on the task of identifying target words. Analysis of the number of sources of activity in the left and right hemispheres revealed significant differences between the two groups, showing that ex-illiterate subjects exhibited less brain functional asymmetry during the language task. Conclusions: These results should be interpreted with caution because the groups were small. However, these findings reinforce the concept that poorly educated subjects tend to use the brain for information processing in a different way to subjects with a high educational level or who were schooled at the regular time. Finally, the recruiting of both hemispheres to tackle the language recognition test occurred to a greater degree in the ex-illiterate group where this can be interpreted as a sign of difficulty performing the task.

  12. Griechische Mythologie bei Statius : Dante, Harold Bloom und die Grenzen der politischen Psychologie

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marko Marinčič


    Full Text Available Ausgangspunkt des Aufsatzes ist die Biographie des Statius, wie sie Dante in der Göttlichen Komödie(Purg. 22 dem Autor der Thebais, der Siluae und des Achilleis-Fragments in den Mund legt. Die Geschichte von der heimlichen Bekehrung des Statius unter Domitian, die die Mehrzahl der modernen Interpreten als eine literarische Fiktion Dantes betrachtet, stützt sich in Purg. 22.88–91 auf eine psychologische Deutung der Thebais, derzufolge Statius’ Schilderung des thebanischen Bürgerkriegs als ein Symptom der Glaubensverleugnung aufzufassen sei. Es kann angenommen werden, daß die kreative Erfindung der religiösen Krise des Statius auf einer politisch-psychologischen Betrachtung der flavischen Literatur gründet, die Dante mit einer großen Zahl moderner Interpreten teilt. Die Tatsache, daß Statius einen mythischen Krieg als Sujet für sein Epos wählt, und die allgemeine Vorliebe der flavischen Epik für mythologische Stoffe werden noch heute oft auf zwei komplementär zusammenwirkende Faktoren zurückgefürt: auf die politische Unterdrückung, die eine affirmative Beschäftigung mit Zeitgschichte schwierig macht, und – in Sinne von Harold Blooms anxiety of influence – auf die künstlerische Beengung, die die nachvergilischen Epiker als Nachfolger eines kanonisierten literarischen ‘Vaters’ erfahren. Der Autor des Beitrags betont einerseits die künstlerische Expressivität, die Dantes ‘Psychopathogramm der nachaugusteischen Epik’ kennzeichnet, und untersucht andererseits – am Beispiel der Achilleis – die Grenzen der politischen Psychologie im Bereich der Literaturgeschichte.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    I. J.J. Spangenberg


    Full Text Available To reflect theologically on God and suffering: Remarks relating to Harold Kushner’s interpretation of Job 40:9-14 More than a decade ago rabbi Harold Kushner wrote a bestseller on God and suffering, entitled When bad things happen to good people. Even Christian theologians took cognizance of it. Kushner based his ideas on a dubious interpretation of Job 40:9-14. According to this interpretation, God confesses his inability to control evil at all times. Although this interpretation can be questioned the reflections are stimulating. Kushner’s book is a clear indication of how theological reflection comes about. Theological statements do not flow directly from the Tanakh or from the Christian Bible. As ancient Near Eastern religious documents they only serve as catalysts for our own theological reflections.

  19. Symbolism in Harold Pinter's The Caretaker,and Taha Salem's Madina That Al-Jather Al-Takibi A Comparative Study

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nadia Ali Akbar


    Full Text Available The twentieth century represents a new shift in the understanding of the circumstances which effect the state of man. New moralities, new values and new estimations were created. Two World Wars brought not only hardships and damages, but also an enlargement in the scope and perception of artists. It is worth nothing that symbolism forms an indispensable part in the theatre of the Absurd. Harold Pinter was an English playwright, screenwriter, actor, director, political, activist, and poet. He was among the most influential British playwrights of modern times, and in 2005 he was awarded the Noble Prize for literature. Pinter's plays must be read many times in order to realize the extent of the symbolism that he uses. In The Caretaker 1959; it is a three act play, he uses the symbols to reflect that the modern world is in a state of absurdity and mess, and man as a part of his world becomes a real reflection of this absurdity and mess in all its kinds. Modern man loses his belief and certainty in such things as love, charity, and understanding as Pinter argues that every man encounters violence in some way or other. All this is clearly represented by the three characters in The Caretaker especially Davies. Taha Salem is another Iraqi playwright who was utilized or assimilated different event grade techniques to convey certain social aims. Madina Taht Al-Jather Al-Takibi.

  20. A reading list for Bill Gates--and you. A conversation with literary critic Harold Bloom. Interview by Diane L. Coutu. (United States)

    Bloom, H


    In today's technology-driven world, who has time to pick up a 400-page novel? Most executives don't--they have urgent e-mails to answer, training seminars to attend, meetings to lead, and trade publications to scan. But according to Harold Bloom, one of America's most influential scholars, they should make time in their hectic schedules to read great works. In a wide-ranging conversation with HBR senior editor Diane Coutu, Bloom discusses the importance of literature: every individual--regardless of profession--needs to stretch his or her mind and reflect now and again on the human condition. "By reading great imaginative literature, you can prepare yourself for surprise and even get a kind of strength that welcomes and exploits the unexpected," he says. Because there are so many great works and there is so little time, Bloom presents a reading list for busy executives. Shakespeare's King Lear can teach businesspeople about change. Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays capture the ethos of the American spirit--individualism and inventiveness. Bloom says Sigmund Freud's conceptions "form the only Western mythology that contemporary intellectuals have in common." And people will never fully understand some aspects of themselves until they read Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote. In short, Bloom believes the humanities have much to offer businesspeople: great books broaden their awareness and their range of sensibility, he says. But reading literature will not make businesspeople more moral, he cautions. Bloom also discusses other topics such as how to read well, the state of popular fiction, the role of irony, and the subject of change.

    Several influential American scientists have begun to argue that the cost of research publications has grown so large that it impedes the distribution of knowledge. Some subscriptions cost thousands of dollars per year, and those journals are usually available online only to subscribers. So a coalition led by Harold Varmus, the former director of the National Institutes of Health, is creating a new model, called the Public Library of Science (1/2 page).

  18. The Aesthetic Values of Silence in Two Plays by Harold Pinter

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Niloufar Amiri


    Full Text Available In our modern world where people suffer from self-alienation and are after the meaning of existence in their mechanical and flamboyant outside world, finding a discernible language is very important. Dejected minds of people are the products of the miserable modern societies which have changed them to the taciturn and uncommunicative creatures in search of meaning. The significance of language specifically poetic or living language is an undeniable fact in different eras. Therefore, it would be easier for the artists to communicate people by letting them get the maximum meaning with the least amount of words.  This article shows the aesthetic values of silence in two Pinter plays, The Birthday Party and The Dumb Waiter. It uses Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s theory of “organic unity” to show that the simultaneous presence of language and silence in Pinter’s dramas keeps the whole work of art in balance, allowing opposite particles to reconcile. Keywords: poetic/living language, theory of organic unity, unseen and unheard aspects of language, metaphoric and ambiguous language, defamiliarization in language, modern musical language

  1. More or Less on the Mark? Translating Harold Pinter’s The Dwarfs: A Novel

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Łukasz Borowiec


    Full Text Available A literary source text demands the translator’s approach for each process of translation. This approach involves a complex and multifaceted analysis of the source text. As Pinter’s novel The Dwarfs provides rich ground for such analysis, I present a selection of translation issues against the backdrop of a more general problem of translatability. Pinter is a master of English dialogue, which makes its translation a truly daunting task. The conversations between the characters are filled with expressions from cricket, dated British cultural references, puns, literary and Biblical allusions, phrases and formulaic expressions characteristic of Cockney, and numerous allusions to Shakespeare as well as his own earlier plays. I examine the translatability of The Dwarfs by discussing three translation codes: lexical-semantic, cultural and esthetic. Although these are closely interconnected and interdependent, I present a choice of issues within each code in order to submit for consideration the challenges facing a Pinter translator as well as to show the complexity of Pinter’s artistic vision in one of his earliest works.

    BACKGROUND: Self-perceptions of aging have been implicated as independent predictors of functional disability and mortality in older adults. In spite of this, research on self-perceptions of aging is limited. One reason for this is the absence of adequate measures. Specifically, there is a need to develop a measure that is theoretically-derived, has good psychometric properties, and is multidimensional in nature. The present research seeks to address this need by adopting the Self-Regulation Model as a framework and using it to develop a comprehensive, multi-dimensional instrument for assessing self-perceptions of aging. This study describes the validation of this newly-developed instrument, the Aging Perceptions Questionnaire (APQ). METHODS: Participants were 2,033 randomly selected community-dwelling older (+65 yrs) Irish adults who completed the APQ alongside measures of physical and psychological health. The APQ assesses self-perceptions of aging along eight distinct domains or subscales; seven of these examine views about own aging, these are: timeline chronic, timeline cyclical, consequences positive, consequences negative, control positive, control negative, and emotional representations; the eighth domain is the identity domain and this examines the experience of health-related changes. RESULTS: Mokken scale analysis showed that the majority of items within the views about aging subscales were strongly scalable. Confirmatory factor analysis also indicated that the model provided a good fit for the data. Overall, subscales had good internal reliabilities. Hierarchical linear regression was conducted to investigate the independent contribution of APQ subscales to physical and psychological health and in doing so determine the construct validity of the APQ. Results showed that self-perceptions of aging were independently related to physical and psychological health. Mediation testing also supported a role for self-perceptions of aging as partial mediators in the relationship between indices of physical functioning and physical and psychological health outcomes. CONCLUSION: Findings support the complex and multifaceted nature of the aging experience. The good internal reliability and construct validity of the subscales suggests that the APQ is a promising instrument that can enable a theoretically informed, multidimensional assessment of self-perceptions of aging. The potential role of self-perceptions of aging in facilitating physical and psychological health in later life is also highlighted.

  11. ChemSkill Builder 2000, Version 6.1 [CD-ROM] (by James D. Spain and Harold J. Peters) (United States)

    Keeney-Kennicutt, Reviewed By Wendy L.


    One of the major challenges for faculty teaching general chemistry is how to encourage students to practice solving problems. We know that for students to develop chemical intuition and problem-solving skills, they must "get their hands dirty" as they decipher and unravel problems inherent to our discipline. One tool that I've used since its release in 1996 is the ChemSkill Builder, an electronic homework package. The latest version, ChemSkill Builder (CSB) 2000, version 6.1, is an excellent, effective integration of teaching and testing most quantitative and conceptual learning objectives in an interactive way. It is inexpensive and easy to use for both students and faculty. The CSB 2000 package of personalized problem sets, specifically designed to complement most general chemistry courses, is a program on CD-ROM for PC Windows users (3.1, 95, or 98), with more than 1500 questions and a 3 1/2-in. record-management disk. There is a separate grade-management disk for the instructor. It has 24 gradable chapters, each with 5 or 6 sections, plus two new chapters that are not graded: Polymer Chemistry and an Appendix of Chemical Skills. Each section begins with a short review of the topic and many have interactive explanations. If students miss an answer, they are given a second chance for 70% credit. If they still miss, the worked-out solution is presented in detail. Students can work each section as many times as they wish to improve their scores. Periodically, the students download their data directly into a PC set up by the instructor. The data can be easily converted into an ASCII file and merged with a spreadsheet. The use of CD-ROM solves the sporadic problems associated with previous versions on 3 1/2-in. disks: software glitches, failed disks, and system incompatibilities. The quality and number of graphics and interactive exercises are much improved in this latest version. I particularly enjoyed the interactive explanations of significant figures and dimensional analysis in Sections 2.3 and 2.5, the pH meter simulation in Section 18.3, the Geiger counter simulation in Section 23.5, and the new periodic table game in Appendix A. I informally polled my Fall 1999 students on their midsemester impressions of the ChemSkill Builder, version 5.1--the previous version. The preliminary results in Table 1 show an overall acceptable rating of 3.45. Note that 51% of the students thought that incorporating the CSB into the syllabus was good to very good, compared to only 16% who gave negative responses. Positive comments included "a great tool to study for the test" and "it shows how to work out the problems". The major negative comment was that the CSB was too time-consuming because the acceptable answer had to include the right number of significant figures and the correct unit--sexactly what an instructor wants the student to learn. Interestingly, the scores given appeared to be independent of the students' midterm grades, suggesting that acceptance of this product might be linked to a specific learning style. When I compared my students' responses to their Keirsey temperaments in Table 2, the ChemSkill Builder appealed somewhat more to the students who like activity, entertainment and immediate feedback (SP) or who enjoy technology and constant success experiences (NT) than to the students who prefer more group interactions (NF) or who need more structure (SJ). At the semester's end, the students were asked again to rate the ChemSkill Builder, and 97% of 155 responses either agreed (28%) or strongly agreed (69%) that it proved helpful in learning course material. Moreover, 99% thought that I should continue to incorporate the ChemSkill Builder in future courses. To summarize, the ChemSkill Builder 2000, version 6.1, will be an excellent tool for augmenting the learning process in the general chemistry classroom.

    Full Text Available Aphodius abdominalis Bonelli, 1812 is shown to have a karyotype comprising nine pairs of autosomes and sex chromosomes which are X0 (male, XX (female. At first metaphase of meiosis the X chromosome is linked to an autosomal bivalent by a darkly staining area of the cytoplasm, resembling the Xy p arrangement typical of Aphodius species, but giving nine, rather than 10, elements in the nucleus. C-banding, which shows the centromeres, confirms this unusual arrangement. A. bonvouloiri, the only other known species of subgenus Agolius Mulsant et Rey, 1869, has a male karyotype with nine pairs of autosomes and Xy sex chromosomes. No preparations of its meiosis are available.

The measurement of library usage was by exit gate counts before and after library improvements. Setting – American academic libraries in which: facility improvement projects were completed between 1995 and 2002, the project space was not smaller than 20,000 square feet, the project space did not include off‐site storage or non-public space, and gate-count statistics from before and after facility changes were available. Subjects – Ninety of 384 identified academic libraries were able to provide usable data on: exit gate count, total circulation, in-house collection use, and reference transaction data. Methods – The data collection was undertaken in 2003 for the companion study (Shill and Tonner. A population of 384 libraries potentially able to meet criteria for the study was gathered and each library was invited by e‐mail to complete a Web‐based survey. Through this initial contact, 357 libraries were confirmed as meeting the study criteria, and responses were received from 182 of those providing a 51% overall response rate. Respondents were asked about institutional characteristics (public or private, Carnegie classification, etc.; project specific features (year of completion, nature of project, etc.; nature and extent of changes (seating, wiring, HVAC, etc.; presence of non‐library services in the facility; collection arrangements; before and after quality changes in lighting, seating and a range of services (as assessed by the survey respondent; and before and after project completion gate count usage statistics. Respondents were asked a set of eleven questions each with a five‐point scale about facility quality and librarian satisfaction with the former and the changed facility. A further criteria requirement of the availability of pre- and post-project gate count was implemented, reducing the number of libraries to be studied to 90. Facility usage changes were calculated by subtracting the gate count total for the last complete year pre-project from the most recent year gate count post project. Main results Eighty percent of the 90 libraries reported increased gate count postproject, and 20 percent reported a decline in usage. The median increase across the libraries was 37.4 percent with 25.6 percent of libraries experiencing a post‐project increase of 100 percent or more. Renovated facilities were more likely to see usage decline, but there was no statistically significant difference in usage change between renovated and new facilities. Libraries more recently upgraded saw greater usage growth than those renovations completed earlier in the study period, although 75 percent of the facilities continued to experience higher post-project usage levels. Nearly all of the private institutions (93.1% experienced usage increases and almost half experienced growth of 100 percent or more. No statistically significant relationship was found between changes in post project usage and: • The proportion of facility space allocated for library functions • The physical location of the library on campus • The size of the library facility • The level of degrees offered at the institution • The availability of wireless access • The number of computers in the instruction lab • The number of public access workstations • A larger number of seats • The number of group study rooms • The shelving capacity, the use of compact shelving or off-site storage • The presence of coffee or snack bars • The presence of any non-library facilities There was a statistically significant correlation (Pearson’s r between increased post project usage and: • The institution type (public or private (p=.000 • The number of data ports in the facility (p=.005 • The percent of wired seats (p=.034 Ten elements relating to improved quality emerged as statistically significant in relation to increased usage, although the correlation for quality of artificial lighting was not statistically significant (p=.162 n.s.. The statistically significant correlations (Pearson’s r between quality and increased usage in order of strength of correlation were: the quality of the instruction lab (p=.000; layout (p=.001; public access workstations (p=.006; natural lighting (p=.007; user workspace (p=.008; telecommunications infrastructure (p=.014; overall ambience (p=.020; collection storage (p=.026; heating, ventilating, and airconditioning system (p=.026; and service point locations (p=.038. Conclusion – This study confirmed that 80 percent of libraries experience usage increase after a library improvement project. The study revealed those investments that cause increased use, and also found that a number of variables previously predicted to cause usage growth were not significant. The study also found that quality of the improvements, additions, and the building are a significant driver of increased use. The median 37.4 percent increase demonstrates that, contrary to reports in the literature (Shill and Tonner 460, overall library usage is increasing in these institutions.

  6. Poet interrupted: differences in the emotionality and imagery of Byron's poetry associated with his turbulent mid-career years in England. (United States)

    Whissell, Cynthia


    The Dictionary of Affect in Language was employed to compare two parts of Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, written before and after an interruption of several turbulent years in England. The post-interruption part of the poem employed fewer extreme emotional words and more abstract words than the pre-interruption part. In a second analysis, poems written during the interruption and poems written before and after Childe Harold were examined, along with it, in terms of emotion, imagery, and linguistic richness. Two variables--year and an interruption dummy coded as 1 for publications between 1812.5 and 1816.17--predicted observed differences accurately. Byron's poetry became linguistically richer, more abstract, and less passionate across time, and it was emotionally more negative and linguistically simpler during the turbulent years. Differences between the two parts of Childe Harold were best explained on the basis of time-dependent growth curves rather than the interruption.

  14. Overexpressed pp60c-src can induce focus formation without complete transformation of NIH 3T3 cells. (United States)

    Johnson, P J; Coussens, P M; Danko, A V; Shalloway, D


    NIH 3T3 cells were transfected with plasmids containing Moloney murine leukemia virus long terminal repeats and either chicken c-src or v-src genes. In contrast with the effects observed after transfection with plasmids containing c-src and avian retrovirus or simian virus 40 promoter-enhancers (H. Hanafusa, H. Iba, T. Takeya, and F. R. Cross, p. 1-8, in G. F. Vande Woude, A. J. Levine, W. C. Topp, and J. D. Watson, ed., Cancer Cells, vol. 2, 1984; H. Iba, T. Takeya, F. R. Cross, T. Hanafusa, and H. Hanafusa, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Bishop, Cell 37:131-139, 1984; D. Shalloway, P. M. Coussens, and P. Yaciuk, p. 9-17, in G. F. Vande Woude et al., ed., Cancer Cells, vol. 2, 1984; D. Shalloway, P. M. Coussens, and P. Yaciuk, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 81:7071-7075; and K. C. Wilhelmsen, W. G. Tarpley, and H. M. Temin, p. 303-308, in G. F. Vande Woude et al., ed., Cancer Cells, vol. 2, 1984), we found that both types of Moloney murine leukemia virus long terminal repeat-src expression plasmids induced focus formation, although c-src induced only 1% as many foci as v-src. The focus-selected c-src overexpressed cells had altered morphology and limited growth in soft agarose but were not tumorigenic in vivo. Cleveland digests, comparative in vitro kinase assays, secondary transfections, and immunoprecipitations indicated that focus formation was caused by rare transfection events that resulted in very high-level pp60c-src expression rather than by mutations of the transfected c-src genes. These results suggest that pp60v-src induced transformation is not a completely spurious activity which is unrelated to the function of pp60c-src but that it represents a perturbation of already existent molecular control processes involving pp60c-src.

  18. Bringing Republican Ideas Back Home: The Dewey-Laski Connection


    Silva, Filipe Carreira da


    This article explores J.G.A. Pocock’s insight that “traces” of civic republican discourse survived within the dominant liberal paradigm of modern political thought. It does so by tracking classical republican themes in the works of American pragmatist John Dewey and English pluralist Harold Laski. The main contribution of the article is to show that the 1920s pluralist theory of the state can be interpreted as a reformulation of the classical republican critique of modern liberal conceptions ...

    When discussing conformity, modern social psychological literature draws its conclusions mostly from the classical sources written by the mid twentieth century authors such as Muzafer and CarolynSherif, Leon Festinger, Solomon Asch, Morton Deutsch, and Harold B.

Basing his practice on the economic critique of "conspicuous consumption" by Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929), Ackerman was a leader of the technocratic movement. Ackerman directed his employees to develop factual architectural data. The authors of Graphic Standards, Charles Ramsey (1884-1963) and Harold Sleeper ...

  6. Cancer modelling in the NGS era - Part I: Emerging technology and initial modelling. (United States)

    Rovigatti, Ugo


    It is today indisputable that great progresses have been made in our molecular understanding of cancer cells, but an effective implementation of such knowledge into dramatic cancer-cures is still belated and yet desperately needed. This review gives a snapshot at where we stand today in this search for cancer understanding and definitive treatments, how far we have progressed and what are the major obstacles we will have to overcome both technologically and for disease modelling. In the first part, promising 3rd/4th Generation Sequencing Technologies will be summarized (particularly IonTorrent and OxfordNanopore technologies). Cancer modelling will be then reviewed from its origin in XIX Century Germany to today's NGS applications for cancer understanding and therapeutic interventions. Developments after Molecular Biology revolution (1953) are discussed as successions of three phases. The first, PH1, labelled "Clonal Outgrowth" (from 1960s to mid 1980s) was characterized by discoveries in cytogenetics (Nowell, Rowley) and viral oncology (Dulbecco, Bishop, Varmus), which demonstrated clonality. Treatments were consequently dominated by a "cytotoxic eradication" strategy with chemotherapeutic agents. In PH2, (from the mid 1980s to our days) the description of cancer as "Gene Networks" led to targeted-gene-therapies (TGTs). TGTs are the focus of Section 3: in view of their apparent failing (Ephemeral Therapies), alternative strategies will be discussed in review part II (particularly cancer immunotherapy, CIT). Additional Pitfalls impinge on the concepts of tumour heterogeneity (inter/intra; ITH). The described pitfalls set the basis for a new phase, PH3, which is called "NGS Era" and will be also discussed with ten emerging cancer models in the Review 2nd part.

  7. Human gene control by vital oncogenes: revisiting a theoretical model and its implications for targeted cancer therapy. (United States)

    Willis, Rudolph E


    An important assumption of our current understanding of the mechanisms of carcinogenesis has been the belief that clarification of the cancer process would inevitably reveal some of the crucial mechanisms of normal human gene regulation. Since the momentous work of Bishop and Varmus, both the molecular and the biochemical processes underlying the events in the development of cancer have become increasingly clear. The identification of cellular signaling pathways and the role of protein kinases in the events leading to gene activation have been critical to our understanding not only of normal cellular gene control mechanisms, but also have clarified some of the important molecular and biochemical events occurring within a cancer cell. We now know that oncogenes are dysfunctional proto-oncogenes and that dysfunctional tumor suppressor genes contribute to the cancer process. Furthermore, Weinstein and others have hypothesized the phenomenon of oncogene addiction as a distinct characteristic of the malignant cell. It can be assumed that cancer cells, indeed, become dependent on such vital oncogenes. The products of these vital oncogenes, such as c-myc, may well be the Achilles heel by which targeted molecular therapy may lead to truly personalized cancer therapy. The remaining problem is the need to introduce relevant molecular diagnostic tests such as genome microarray analysis and proteomic methods, especially protein kinase identification arrays, for each individual patient. Genome wide association studies on cancers with gene analysis of single nucleotide and other mutations in functional proto-oncogenes will, hopefully, identify dysfunctional proto-oncogenes and allow the development of more specific targeted drugs directed against the protein products of these vital oncogenes. In 1984 Willis proposed a molecular and biochemical model for eukaryotic gene regulation suggesting how proto-oncogenes might function within the normal cell. That model predicted the

  9. The Mount Wilson-University of California Connection from Hussey and Seares to Mayall and Olin Wilson (United States)

    Osterbrock, D. E.


    George Ellery Hale, who founded Mount Wilson Solar Observatory, first visited Lick Observatory in 1890, soon after his graduation from MIT. After his parents' deaths, when he began openly planning a Yerkes Observatory ``expedition" to California, Hale's friend James E. Keeler, then Lick Observatory Director, invited him (in 1899) to locate it on Mt.Hamilton. Hale thanked him, but replied that sites further south would have more clear weather. He had probably already decided on Mount Wilson. There were many close connections between the University of California and Mount Wilson Observatory from that time right up to the present. W.J. Hussey was the Lick astronomer who carried out the official site survey that confirmed Mount Wilson as the best site. Harold Palmer (UC Astronomy PhD 1903) was the first new staff member Hale hired, but he only lasted a few months. The two main reasons for the continuing connection were the geographical proximity of Pasadena and the Bay Area, and the fact that for many years UC was the outstanding graduate astronomy department in the country, producing numerous well trained observational research astronomers. However in the early years the reasons were more complicated. After Palmer, the next three hired at MWO were Arthur King, the first UC Physics PhD (1903); Harold Babcock, (UC Engineering BS 1907); and F.H. Seares (UC Astronomy BS 1895). Harold Babcock trained his son in astronomy almost from birth, and Horace (UC Astronomy PhD 1938) joined the MWO staff after World War II and became its Director in 1964. Palmer and Edward Fath (UC PhD 1909) were less successful at MWO and soon departed. These and numerous other MWO astronomers with UC backgrounds will be mentioned, and their careers discussed.

    Freud's legacy deriving from his work The project for a scientific psychology (1895) could give a new impetus to the dialogue between psychoanalysis and neurosciences. A rapproachment phase is warrented. Based on the work of psychoanalysts who are themselves neuroscientists (such as Mauro Mancia, Martha Koukkou and Harold Shevrin) or have a long term dialogue with neuroscientists (Arnold Modell), three points of epistemological congruence are described: 1. dualism is no longer a satisfactory solution 2. cautions for the centrality of interpretation (hermeneutics) 3. the self-criticism of neuroscientists PMID:17976245

  20. The foundations of fuzzy control

    CERN Document Server

    Lewis, Harold W


    Harold Lewis applied a cross-disciplinary approach in his highly accessible discussion of fuzzy control concepts. With the aid of fifty-seven illustrations, he thoroughly presents a unique mathematical formalism to explain the workings of the fuzzy inference engine and a novel test plant used in the research. Additionally, the text posits a new viewpoint on why fuzzy control is more popular in some countries than in others. A direct and original view of Japanese thinking on fuzzy control methods, based on the author's personal knowledge of - and association with - Japanese fuzzy research, is also included.

    Full Text Available Abstract Freud's legacy deriving from his work The project for a scientific psychology (1895 could give a new impetus to the dialogue between psychoanalysis and neurosciences. A rapproachment phase is warrented. Based on the work of psychoanalysts who are themselves neuroscientists (such as Mauro Mancia, Martha Koukkou and Harold Shevrin or have a long term dialogue with neuroscientists (Arnold Modell, three points of epistemological congruence are described: 1. dualism is no longer a satisfactory solution 2. cautions for the centrality of interpretation (hermeneutics 3. the self-criticism of neuroscientists

  6. Sodium/proton antiporter in Streptococcus faecalis.


    Kakinuma, Y


    Streptococcus faecalis, like other bacteria, accumulates potassium ions and expels sodium ions. This paper is concerned with the pathway of sodium extrusion. Earlier studies (D.L. Heefner and F.M. Harold, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 79:2798-2802, 1982) showed that sodium extrusion is effected by a primary, ATP-linked sodium pump. I report here that cells grown under conditions in which sodium ATPase is not induced can still expel sodium ions. This finding suggested the existence of an alternat...

  7. New species in the genus Monoecocestus (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) from neotropical rodents (Caviidae and Sigmodontinae). (United States)

    Haverkost, Terry R; Gardner, Scott L


    Anoplocephalid cestodes have a worldwide distribution, but relatively few species are known from South American rodents. By examining the collections of the Harold W. Manter Laboratory of Parasitology and the United States National Parasite Collection, 6 new species of Monoecocestus Beddard, 1914, are described, along with a redescription of Monoecocestus mackiewiczi Schmidt and Martin, 1978, based on the type specimens. The discussion includes commentary about uterine development, an important taxonomic character of the family, the vaginal dilation in immature segments (a character of potential taxonomic importance), and the implication of host usage to the evolutionary history and biogeography of species in this genus.

  16. Critical Irony or the Lovers of Ruins: The Aesthete, the Dandy and the Flâneur

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Naim Garnica


    Full Text Available This essay examines the critical character of Friedrich Schlegel’s Romantic irony, following its considerations and appropriations by Walter Benjamin, Harold Bloom and Paul de Man. Likewise, it shows a parallelism of this critical attitude of irony with three Romantic literary figures: the aesthete, the dandy and the flâneur. The aesthete, the dandy and the flâneur, joined by a prophetic faith in art, make of irony a profession moving between creation and destruction. Appropriation in the poststructuralist context allows us to perceive in irony such a radical incomprehension, developing an aesthetic pattern operating between creation and annihilation.

    Full Text Available This paper approaches a reading and understanding of present Puerto Rican literary field, through the relationship between young authors and their literary models, especially by means of the link, as an example, between Juan Carlos Quiñones and Luis Rafael Sánchez. The concept of influence according to Harold Bloom becomes intricate in terms of reading and writing, since young people separate themselves from programmatic commands around ambivalent Puerto Rican national identity, though, in turn, they acknowledge filial gestures of closeness to their elders.

  19. T. S. Eliot’s Misreading of Some Mythological Sources in The Waste Land

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Liem Satya Limanta


    Full Text Available Reading always entails an act of interpretation and all interpretation involves misreading. All poets cannot be separated from the previous ones. They must read and misread their precursors. T.S. Eliot misreads the mythological sources that he uses in his poem The Waste Land. This misreading is not a mistake, but it is meant to create new meaning to the available text. By misreading the previous texts, the poet creates a space of creativity for himself. There are six ways of misreading as explicated by Harold Bloom. In this article only three ways of misreading will be explained and applied, namely clinamen, tessera, and kenosis.

Una clase de autonomía que lo libera a uno de formas de pensamiento esterotipadas sobre los seres humanos. Luego estos planteamiento se extrapoldan a los escritores James y Proust como ejemplos de creadores de obras liberadoras del egotismo.

This report was later acknowledged as the first published account of what would become known as human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. It was the first of many MMWR reports that led to a better understanding of this new condition. In this podcast, Dr. Harold Jaffe recalls CDC’s investigation and response to the AIDS Epidemic.  Created: 12/1/2017 by MMWR.   Date Released: 12/1/2017.

  4. “The Dignity of Man”: Pinter, Politics, and the Nobel Speech

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrew Goodspeed


    Full Text Available The paper is an examination of Harold Pinter’s Nobel Prize lecture ‘Art, Truth & Politics’ from the political aspect. It argues that Pinter’s speech was widely misreported at the time as being most significant for its political attacks on President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair. The paper suggests instead that the lecture given by Pinter is better understood as a message congruent with his long-standing political statements; that it was not an inappropriate eruption of politics into a literary speech; and that these political positions are also relatable to the dramatic work by which he is distinguished.

  5. Collaborative Research in the Digital Humanities

    Deegan, Marilyn


    Collaboration within digital humanities is both a pertinent and a pressing topic as the traditional mode of the humanist, working alone in his or her study, is supplemented by explicitly co-operative, interdependent and collaborative research. This is particularly true where computational methods are employed in large-scale digital humanities projects. This book, which celebrates the contributions of Harold Short to this field, presents fourteen essays by leading authors in the digital humanities. It addresses several issues of collaboration, from the multiple perspectives of institutions, pro

    Based on Harold Innis’ concepts of time-bias and space-bias this article examines the significance of museum exhibitions in the media landscape. From a media ecology perspective, it is argued that the exhibition should be seen as a time-biased medium in a highly space-biased society. Since museums...... are increasingly turning towards space, balance becomes a central issue. The article also discusses the role of so-called virtual exhibitions and ultimately concludes that increased awareness and appreciation of the exhibition medium is important and that museums should consider their role as media makers....

    Fabiana Lícia Araújo dos Santos


    Full Text Available O fluxo contínuo de novos produtos no mercado é fruto da inovação tecnológica apresentada pela Indústria Farmacêutica. O governo Brasileiro tem investido em iniciativas promissoras de inovação através do desenvolvimento de medicamentos para os programas públicos de saúde, instituindo o Programa de Pesquisa e Desenvolvimento em Doenças Negligenciadas, o qual foca sete doenças: dengue, doenças de Chagas, leishmaniose, hanseníase, malária, esquistossomose e tuberculose. O artigo foca uma revisão sobre P&D aplicada à prevenção e controle das doenças negligenciadas no Brasil e no mundo. Com base nos dados levantados, percebeu-se que são grandes as dificuldades para o desenvolvimento de P&D em tecnologias e produtos para combater as doenças negligenciadas e que são poucos os investimentos financeiros nesse segmento quando comparados aos de pesquisas que focam outras enfermidades. Diante disso, pode-se enfatizar a importância de investimentos em pesquisas nesse setor, em saneamento básico e programas educativos que orientem a população sobre combate à proliferação dos vetores e agentes causadores.

  11. Etnografía del Rito: sintaxis e isotopía funeraria del velorio en Maracaibo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aura Montilla


    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se analiza la información etnográfica recogida en sirte velorios observados durante el período 1999-2003. Por sus especiales características se hará particular énfasis en un velorio realizado en Maracaibo en 1999, el cual combina el rito católico tradicional con el de un grupo de vasallos de San Benito, un culto religioso muy extendido en Venezuela. Gracias a la asistencia y participación en el rito fue posible entrevistar también a varios informantes sobre los componentes de este ritual mixto. El rito fue dividido en secuencias con un doble propósito: establecer sus componentes fundamentales y, luego, hacer un inventario de los principales valores semánticos investidos en el rito, a fin de elaborar un modelo de sus isotopías fundamentales. También se analizan brevemente algunos de los valores sociales que el rito actualiza. La investigación utiliza como fundamento teórico el modelo semiótico de A.J. Greimas, la teoría del símbolo de Turner y la Antropología de la muerte de Thomas.

  12. Fatores associados ao aborto induzido entre jovens pobres na cidade de São Paulo, 2007

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rebeca de Souza e Silva


    Full Text Available Esse artigo investiga fatores associados ao aborto induzido entre jovens residentes numa comunidade pobre da cidade de São Paulo. A amostra foi composta por 102 homens e 99 mulheres de 14 a 25 anos de idade que já haviam iniciado suas vidas sexuais. Usou-se o modelo hierárquico de regressão logística. As variáveis não ter companheiro sexual no momento da entrevista, sexo do entrevistado, idade no momento da entrevista, priorizar morar só e número de gestações compuseram o modelo final. Dar muita importância a morar só quadruplica a chance de ocorrer um aborto. Jovens mais velhos foram menos propensos a se deparar com um aborto, dado que a chance de se optar pelo aborto se reduz 17% para cada incremento de um ano na idade dos jovens. Isso é indicativo de que as gestações ocorreram de forma inesperada, intempestiva, como é praxe nas condutas adolescentes, sendo as maiores candidatas a terminarem em aborto provocado. Evidencia-se, portanto, a necessidade de serem investidos recursos financeiros para obtenção de métodos contraceptivos eficazes e inócuos, destinados ao início da vida sexual.

  13. Programa Seis Sigma: aspectos sinérgicos com outras abordagens de gerenciamento da qualidade

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Silvia Helena Boarin Pinto


    Full Text Available Diversas abordagens de gestão da qualidade têm sido adotadas em todos os continentes há décadas. Uma das mais recentes, o programa Seis Sigma, vem sendo implementado por um número crescente de empresas. O Seis Sigma surge no atual cenário, em que as organizações realizam grandes investimentos na implementação de programas de melhoria da qualidade e se deparam com situações críticas como a mensuração do retorno sobre o capital investido, bem como a análise criteriosa dos benefícios alcançados. A proposta deste artigo é identificar as principais características do Seis Sigma, discutir quais os fatores críticos na sua implementação, as ferramentas e técnicas que suportam este processo, bem como sua relação com outros consagrados programas de melhoria da qualidade. A abordagem metodológica utilizada foi o estudo de múltiplos casos, desenvolvido em dez grandes empresas brasileiras de diferentes setores industriais. A pesquisa concluiu que existe sinergia entre o Seis Sigma e os demais programas e as organizações que adotaram o Seis Sigma obtiveram benefícios financeiros e de qualidade.

  14. Café convencional versus café orgânico: perspectivas de sustentabilidade socioeconômica dos agricultores familiares do Espírito Santo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Haloysio Miguel de Siqueira


    Full Text Available Esse artigo enfoca a viabilidade de investimento na produção de café arábica, no Estado do Espírito Santo, comparando os sistemas convencional e orgânico, para identificar o que proporciona maior sustentabilidade socioeconômica aos produtores familiares. Os métodos de avaliação econômica utilizados foram o valor presente líquido, a taxa interna de retorno e o tempo de retorno do capital investido. Também foi feita a análise de sensibilidade. Demonstrou-se que ambos os sistemas de produção foram viáveis, mas, observou-se a grande dependência de recebimento do prêmio para viabilizar o cultivo orgânico, compensando a sua menor produtividade. Além disso, o preço recebido foi a variável que exerceu a maior influência na rentabilidade dos cafeicultores familiares. Concluiu-se que, assegurada a eficiência econômica e ecológica do sistema orgânico, o desafio é aperfeiçoar a sua eficiência técnica, para que possa contribuir com a sustentabilidade socioeconômica dos cafeicultores familiares.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giovani Ribeiro Rodrigues Alves


    Full Text Available The crisis of the traditional capitalism urges innovation. The cooperative is an alternative way of usual commercial organization, and it does this without compromising the institutes of free enterprises and private property. Cooperativism promotes ethics and democracy as an environment of entrepreneurship. The profits are shared according to the participation in the activities and not according to how much the person have paid before. The experience of cooperativism in developed countries shows how much it is profitable and good to economics and society.A crise da forma tradicional de capitalismo clama por inovações. A cooperativa é uma forma alternativa à organização empresarial tradicional, sem deixar de assegurar a livre iniciativa e a propriedade privada. O cooperativismo preza a ética e a democracia num ambiente propício ao empreendimento. Pressupõe uma cultura de desapego ao poder estabelecido com base no capital investido, e a participação nos resultados proporcional à conduta proativa do empreendedor. A experiência das cooperativas em países de alto grau de desenvolvimento corrobora o acerto desta forma de organização e se mostra útil para o desenvolvimento econômico e social do empreendedor.

    Full Text Available Resumo Neste artigo, argumento que as mesas de doces presentes nos rituais matrimoniais ocupam lugar central nos festejos que se seguem à cerimônia de casamento e são atravessadas por dimensões econômicas, morais, materiais, estéticas e afetivas, funcionando como um condensador do ritual. Defendo ainda que, quando observadas atentamente, as mesas de doces são reveladoras da existência de uma hierarquia presente em todo o ritual, bem como de uma temporalidade que é própria dele. Nos últimos anos, venho me dedicando a estudar este ritual de passagem com o intuito de compreender alguns dos significados, códigos e valores nele investidos. O exame do percurso da mesa de doces, desde sua montagem até sua desmontagem, focalizando em especial suas funções sociais e simbólicas, é realizado a partir de material etnográfico construído entre os anos 2011 e 2014.

    Full Text Available Este estudo discute as propostas curriculares dos cursos de psicologia do estado do Piauí, Brasil, para o campo da saúde mental. Para tanto, analisamos o projeto pedagógico e a organização curricular, além da maneira com que os cursos têm investido seus conteúdos curriculares na promoção e apropriação de princípios, saberes e práticas para efetivação da reforma psiquiátrica e da estratégia de atenção psicossocial. Foram realizadas pesquisa documental e entrevista semiestruturada com os coordenadores dos três cursos da capital. Os resultados indicam que os currículos, apesar do avanço na incorporação dos debates da saúde coletiva e saúde mental, bem como da atuação do psicólogo em contextos social-comunitários, mantêm uma nítida e tradicional dicotomia entre clínica e saúde coletiva; avançam pouco em relação aos novos saberes/práticas para consolidar a reforma psiquiátrica no estado; mantêm os modelos asilar e psicossocial nos modos de formar e intervir dos psicólogos na saúde mental piauiense.

Os resultados indicam que os currículos, apesar do avanço na incorporação dos debates da saúde coletiva e saúde mental, bem como da atuação do psicólogo em contextos social-comunitários, mantêm uma nítida e tradicional dicotomia entre clínica e saúde coletiva; avançam pouco em relação aos novos saberes/práticas para consolidar a reforma psiquiátrica no estado; mantêm os modelos asilar e psicossocial nos modos de formar e intervir dos psicólogos na saúde mental piauiense.

  3. Produtividade, pressão e humilhação no trabalho: os trabalhadores e as novas fábricas de calçados no Ceará

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Raquel Maria Rigotto

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é mostrar o modo como as práticas organizacionais e a cultura dos locais de trabalho podem levar a experiências de humilhação e a situações constrangedoras no trabalho. A discussão baseia-se em entrevistas realizadas no decorrer de 2007, com 20 trabalhadores de três fábricas de calçados localizadas no Ceará. A análise de conteúdo das entrevistas indica que, apesar da humilhação e do constrangimento serem formas de violência conduzidas por indivíduos investidos de poder e autoridade na empresa, essas práticas transcendem as relações interpessoais e estão relacionadas às políticas de gestão organizacional centradas no estabelecimento de metas de produção a serem cumpridas pelos trabalhadores. As políticas determinam quanto e como produzir e, ao mesmo tempo, as relações interpessoais que se estabelecem dentro das fábricas.

  4. Public health awareness of autoimmune diseases after the death of a celebrity. (United States)

    Bragazzi, Nicola Luigi; Watad, Abdulla; Brigo, Francesco; Adawi, Mohammad; Amital, Howard; Shoenfeld, Yehuda


    Autoimmune disorders impose a high burden, in terms of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Vasculitis is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and destruction of blood vessels. Harold Allen Ramis, a famous American actor, director, writer, and comedian, died on the February 24, 2014, of complications of an autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. To investigate the relation between interests and awareness of an autoimmune disease after a relevant event such as the death of a celebrity, we systematically mined Google Trends, Wikitrends, Google News, YouTube, and Twitter, in any language, from their inception until October 31, 2016. Twenty-eight thousand eight hundred fifty-two tweets; 4,133,615 accesses to Wikipedia; 6780 news; and 11,400 YouTube videos were retrieved, processed, and analyzed. The Harold Ramis death of vasculitis resulted into an increase in vasculitis-related Google searches, Wikipedia page accesses, and tweet production, documenting a peak in February 2014. No trend could be detected concerning uploading YouTube videos. The usage of Big Data is promising in the fields of immunology and rheumatology. Clinical practitioners should be aware of this emerging phenomenon.

    Full Text Available Resumen:El propósito de este artículo es presentar las principales tesis de Harold Arthur Prichard sobre la moral. De acuerdo con Prichard, toda la filosofía moral está basada en un conjunto de errores, similares en muchos aspectos a los que produce la epistemología. Intentaré articular tales críticas buscando producir un todo coherente. La ausencia de una presentación de este tipo puede explicar algunos de los malentendidos a los que la propuesta intuicionista ha dado lugar. El principal objetivo de este trabajo consistirá, pues, en llenar este vacío.Abstract:The purpose of this article is to introduce Harold Arthur Prichard´s main philosophical thesis concerning human morality. According to Prichard, the whole body of moral philosophy rests on a set of mistakes, similar in many senses to those produced by epistemology. In this article I will try to summarize a general overview of Prichard´s work concerning these issues. The lack of such an account of Prichard´s thinking could explain much of the misunderstandings about intutionism. The main goal of this article is to close this gap.

  6. [Dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) of the northwestern slope of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, Colombia]. (United States)

    Martínez, Neis J; García, Héctor; Pulido, Luz A; Ospino, Deibi; Harváez, Juan C


    The community structure of dung beetles in the middle and lower river basin of the Gaira river, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia, is described. Four sites were selected along an altitudinal gradient of 50-940 m for sampling from June to October, 2004. Dung beetles were captured using modified pitfall traps and manual recollections. We captured 7,872 individuals belonging to 29 species, distributed in 15 genera and five tribes of Scarabaeinae. Canthon and Onthophagus were the most diverse genera, each represented by six species. The sampled sites shared the following species: Onthophagus acuminatus Harold, O. clypeatus Blanchard, O. marginicollis Harold. Bocatoma was the most diverse site with 23 species; whereas Port Mosquito presented the highest abundance, with 3,262 individuals. Seven species represented 89% of all captures: Canthidium sp., Dichotomius sp., Uroxys sp. 1, Uroxys sp. 2, O. marginicollis, O. clypeatus and O. acuminatus. Of the 29 captured species, 17 belonged to the functional group of diggers and 10 were ball-rollers. We did not observe significant among-site differences in community structure. Abiotic factors such as altitude, temperature and humidity cannot explain observed variation in community structure across sites, indicating other variables such as vegetation cover, density of the vegetation and soil type may play a role in the community structure of these insects.

  8. Do dekonstrukcji i z powrotem

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Agata Bielik-Robson


    Full Text Available The concept of the turn belongs to the favourite terms of nowadays humanities. The so called "deconstructive turn" became one of their most cherished cliches, which, as a cliche, immediately calls for a sceptical, typically deconstructionist intervention. In my paper, I question radically of the deconstructive project by trying to show that deconstruction, despite all the slogans it produced, proclaiming the death of the author and the subject, is far more continuous with modern tradition than it is commonly assumed. Especially, the notion of subjectivity is the one which most stubbornly resists the deconstructive attempts of its "undoing". I analyse three strategies of deconstruction, created by Paul de Man, Jacques Derrida and Harold Bloom, and conclude by pointing to the dialectical circle based on the concepts of expression and inscription. The traditional "romantic" subject perceives itself as an expressive voice for which writing is merely a secondary means of expression. Deconstruction of de Man and Derrida overturns the "romantic" subject by demonstrating the primacy of the effect of inscription. But the postdeconstructive work of Harold Bloom shows the possibility of reconciliation between expression and inscription which opens the way for the return of the subject, although no longer traditionally conceived.

    Helder Roberto Dota Janoselli


    Full Text Available Com a projeção de crescimento da demanda por madeira para as próximas décadas, a produção de eucalipto tem ganhando destaque nos últimos anos e sendo responsável por mais de 70% da área de árvores plantas no Brasil. Os pequenos produtores rurais vêm aumentando sua participação na produção. A busca por alternativa de investimento que gere lucro e demande pouca estrutura e mão de obra, especialmente para os pequenos produtores rurais, motivou o presente trabalho. Dessa forma, o objetivo principal foi analisar a viabilidade econômica da cultura de eucalipto na cidade de São João da Boa Vista, interior de São Paulo. Para isso, foi elaborado fluxo de caixa para um período de 14 anos, calculados os indicadores de Valor Presente Líquido [VPL], Taxa Interna de Retorno [TIR], payback e realizada análise de sensibilidade. Os indicadores econômicos demonstram que a instalação da cultura do eucalipto, conforme proposto, com destoca e custo de oportunidade da terra, mostrou-se inviável, não gerando lucro para o investidor. Com um VPL negativo de R$ 40.808,70, TIR em 3,41% e o tempo de retorno para o capital investido pelo payback simples em 7,82 anos e payback descontado em 8 anos. O mesmo projeto com uma forma de manejo diferente, não realizando a destoca, com a possibilidade de novo plantio de eucalipto, passa a ser viável, com um VPL positivo de R$ 6.802,85, TIR em 4,55% e o tempo de retorno para o capital investido pelo payback simples em 7,82 anos e payback descontado em 8 anos. = According to the projection of growth in wood demand in the upcoming decades, the eucalyptus production is gathering further highlight in recent years and being responsible for over 70 % of the area of woody crops in Brazil. The search for an alternative profitable investment that demands low structure and labor costs, especially for small farmers, has motivated this study. Therefore, the focus was to analyze the economic viability of eucalyptus

    Vânia Alves Martins Chaigar


    Full Text Available El artículo, construido en una asociación docente/discente, expone partes de un itinerario formativo del curso Licenciatura en Pedagogía de la FURG, en el que estudiantes realizan inmersiones investigativas en la ciudad de Rio Grande, Rio Grande do Sul, y ejercitan y agudizan visiones que posibilitan descubrimientos sobre geografías del espacio local. La vida cotidiana sobresale y de ella se extraen saberes derivados de lo pequeño, de las “micro-relaciones” y las “inventividades”, según Michel de Certeau. Éstas, muchas veces, se hacen invisibles delante de los grandes sucesos que nos distraen y, por veces, confunden, dificultando la comprensión de la construcción del espacio físico, por ejemplo. En esta reflexión, las autoras plantean una práctica pedagógica en la que tiempos, espacios y sujetos dialogan con el concepto de “educación para la superación de la barbarie”, apoyándose en Theodor Adorno. Los procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje son acompañados por descubrimientos acerca de los propios sujetos investigadores, quienes investidos de su juventud y curiosidad agregan al universo del aula porciones de saberes proporcionados por la vida en la/de la ciudad. Destacamos la investigación que dio visibilidad a la plaza Recanto da Natureza, construida y preservada por el señor Almiro Muller, ciudadano cuya infancia, suponemos, le ha susurrado al oído preciosos consejos generadores de poéticas intervenciones en favor de convivencias y espacios adecuados a la expresión de los niños de Rio Grande.

Em cada área, foi caracterizada a vegetação e, para cada espécie, foram analisados: 1 o microhabitat, 2 a distribuição espacial e 3 o tempo investido em cada local de forrageio. O número de espécies foi semelhante entre as áreas, contudo, em B1 foi registrada maior abundância. A vegetação desta área apresentou valor de correlação relativamente baixo quando comparada as outras três, que apresentaram valores maiores entre si. Emaranhados de cipó em todos os estratos, estrato médio e superior denso e ocorrência de clareiras foram variáveis representativas na área B1. Estrato médio denso foi representativo para cinco espécies. Por outro lado, emaranhados de cipó no estrato superior e ausência de estrato inferior denso se destacaram apenas para duas espécies. A distribuição espacial, o tempo investido em cada local de forrageio e a seleção de microhabitats variaram entre as espécies. Esses foram fatores importantes na repartição ecológica das espécies analisadas neste estudo.In this study, richness and abundance of Thamnophilidae were both evaluated and correlated with environmental parameters in four forest areas of the Tibagi river basin (B1, M1, A1 and A2, placed in an environmental gradient.

    Full Text Available O objetivo neste artigo é investigar a trajetória de duas empresas startups brasileiras dedicadas a pesquisa e desenvolvimento (P&D no setor de biotecnologia: a Alellyx e a CanaVialis. São dois casos de spin-offs acadêmicos e de bioemprendimentos germinados na esfera do Projeto Genoma, da Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (Fapesp, maturadas na Votorantim Novos Negócios (VNN, área de novos negócios de um dos maiores grupos industriais brasileiros que atua no segmento de commodities, o Grupo Votorantim S/A, e depois vendidas para a Monsanto. Neste estudo, tentou-se compreender a racionalidade e as virtudes das ações de investimentos corporativos e das políticas públicas destinadas à biotecnologia focada em genômica aplicada para a agricultura no Brasil. A metodologia utilizada é a de estudo de caso, mais especificamente de análise dos dois casos de empresas comentados acima. Os resultados demonstraram que, apesar de o principal objetivo do grupo econômico ser a célere valorização do capital investido e seu retorno financeiro, a afiliação corporativa dessas empresas estimulou a aceleração de um conjunto de capacitações para a gestão empresarial da Alellyx e da CanaVialis, que foram críticas para o amadurecimento do negócio. Evidenciou-se, ainda, que foi fundamental o significativo aporte de recursos por meio dos mecanismos de apoio do sistema nacional à inovação.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Flávia De Floriani Pozza Rebello


    Full Text Available Com o desenvolvimento da indústria de alimentos, as embalagens têm se aperfeiçoado, indo além de sua função básica de proteger o alimento contra danos mecânicos e contaminações químicas e microbiológicas. Elas têm cada vez mais desempenhando papel de destaque, contribuindo ativamente para a venda de um produto. Assim, as indústrias de embalagens têm procurado atender aos consumidores mais exigentes e juntamente aos centros de pesquisa e universidades, têm investido mais em estudos de novas tecnologias, a fim de prolongar as características de qualidade do alimento, conferir melhor aparência, maior proteção mecânica no embarque, transporte, desembarque e nos supermercados, oferecer embalagens mais compactas, que ocupem menos espaço na geladeira, com abertura e fechamento mais fáceis, e que utilizem materiais de fácil reciclagem ou decomposição no ambiente. Com o objetivo de atender às novas expectativas das indústrias de alimentos e dos consumidores, surgem as embalagens ativas e as embalagens inteligentes. As embalagens ativas são aquelas que interagem de alguma forma com o alimento, seja liberando substâncias conservantes ao longo da vida de prateleira do produto, ou “corrigindo” alguns problemas naturais do alimento, como sabor amargo por exemplo, em que algumas enzimas podem ser adicionadas ao material de embalagem, minimizando este problema e tornando o produto mais saboroso. Já as embalagens inteligentes indicam as modificações químicas às quais os alimentos estão passando, como mudanças de pH, por exemplo, indicando alterações na qualidade do produto.

    Claudemir Sousa


    Full Text Available Este artigo discute a constituição do sujeito fumante em campanhas antitabagistas presentes nos enunciados que circulam na materialidade sincrética das embalagens de cigarro. Refletiremos sobre duas dimensões que envolvem o corpo desse sujeito, considerado uma superfície discursiva onde incidem relações de saber/poder: o corpo investido pelos biopoderes, através dos quais se promove a biopolítica da população e o corpo como um domínio da estética de si, para refletirmos sobre o cuidado e o governo de si. Utilizamos a teoria da Análise do Discurso, mobilizando como categorias analíticas as noções-conceitos foucaultianas de sujeito, governamentalidade, biopoder, biopolítica e cuidado de si. Metodologicamente, nossa análise possui uma abordagem qualitativa, de cunho descritivo-interpretativo, e recai sobre um corpus constituído por nove dos enunciados supracitados. Concluímos que nas campanhas antitabagistas cruzam-se os discursos médico, jurídico e estético, indicando formas de o sujeito cuidar de si, ao mesmo tempo em que deixa entrever um poder que visa gerir a vida da população com o objetivo final de torná-la mais produtiva e menos onerosa ao Estado.

    Paschoal Tadeu Russo


    Full Text Available Este relato técnico tem como objetivo apresentar os benefícios gerados pela utilização da Gestão Baseada em Valor (GBV para a gestão do desempenho econômico de indústrias, de forma geral, mais especificamente no setor têxtil de não-vestuário brasileiro, um setor altamente competitivo, como uma forma de maximizar o retorno sobre o capital investido na empresa. A intervenção observada ocorreu no período de final de 2012 a 2015 quando a empresa estudada, com mais de 40 anos de existência e de gestão familiar, mudou sua estrutura organizacional, passando de funcional para descentralizada por unidades de negócio. Tal mudança causou necessidades de alterações do processo de avaliação do desempenho, o que permitiu a implantação da GBV. Essa implantação possibilitou a melhoria do processo de gestão, a melhoria dos sistemas de informação e, consequentemente, contribuiu com a melhoria do desempenho dos gestores e da organização. Entende-se que a GBV se apresenta como uma ferramenta que contribui para os processos de gestão que levam à criação de valor para as organizações e oferece elementos de mensuração do lucro econômico como uma medida do lucro residual aos custos de capital da organização

    Raphael Carvalho de Vasconcelos


    Full Text Available La personalidad jurídica es elemento fundamental para la actuación de un sujeto en el orden internacional. La efectiva participación en el espacio global no depende, sin embargo, sólo del cumplimiento de este requisito. Doctrina y jurisprudencia reconocen la personificación de las organizaciones internacionales actualmente sin grandes reservas, pero, ¿correspondería entender que cualquier tratado dotado de personería jurídica debe ser considerado investido de poderes para actuar en el orden internacional muchas veces de forma pareja a los estados? Se propone, en este breve estudio, identificar la existencia de un sistema de solución de diferencias institucionalizado como un requisito necesario para la actuación de las referidas estructuras como sujetos de derecho internacional estableciendo criterios capaces de distinguir las organizaciones internacionales de meros tratados asociativos. En la primera parte, son establecidos los contenidos de conceptos como personalidad y capacidad y, en seguida, el pronunciamiento de la Corte Internacional de Justicia que reconoció la personería jurídica internacional de las Naciones Unidas contribuye al avance de la construcción teórica sugerida. En la tercera parte, las perspectivas interna e internacional son contrapuestas e introducen el siguiente debate, que fija las bases de la separación entre los conceptos de organización internacional y de tratados asociativos. Para fundamentar la diferenciación señalada, se propone, entonces, el reconocimiento de la importancia de los sistemas institucionalizados de solución de controversias como requisito que avale la propuesta de una nueva clasificación de los sujetos de derecho internacional.

    Emmanoel Ferreira


    Full Text Available Nos últimos anos, produtores e desenvolvedores de videogames têm investido maciçamente na produção de jogos com imagens realistas, em alta definição. Pari passu, desde o surgimento dos videogames, a principal forma de interagir com um jogo eletrônico tem sido esta: jogador praticamente estático – exceto pelo movimento de seus olhos e suas mãos, que atuam no processo interativo a partir do controle de um gamepad, joystick, ou da combinação mouse/teclado – diante do monitor ou da TV. Este cenário, no entanto, tem sofrido importantes mudanças, a partir de acessórios que convidam o jogador a interagir com o dispositivo videogame não apenas com suas mãos, mas com todo o seu corpo, e a fazer maior uso do espaço físico ao seu redor, suscitando novas percepções e experiências por parte do jogador/usuário.

  1. [History of the development of intraocular lenses]. (United States)

    Auffarth, G U; Apple, D J


    Even though cataract surgery has been practiced for over 2000 years, modern cataract surgery started just some 50 years ago. with the first IOL implantation by Sir Harold Ridley. The development of intraocular lenses was accompanied by great successes and disasters. With the fast development of cataract surgical techniques over the past 15 years (ECCE, Phacoemulsification, Capsulorhexis) a successful marriage between IOL-developments and surgery was established. Indication profiles for cataract surgery and IOL implantation extended to more and more patient groups. At this time classical cataract surgery is further developing into refractive intraocular lens surgery to correct higher ametropia in clear lens or phakic eyes. This development was only possible because of the improvements of surgical techniques and implants in classical cataract surgery.

    Full Text Available A poet cannot be a poet at all if he is not connected with all the poetic tradition before him. This is T.S. Eliot's dictum which he stated in Tradition and the Individual Talent and which he practiced in his work The Waste Land. T.S. Eliot showed his relationship with the past through all the quotations and allusions to mythical, literary, and religious works. His reading of those sources according to Paul de Man cannot avoid misreading or misinterpretation. Harold Bloom has tried to build up a theory of misreading, which he prefers to call misprision, especially applied to and done by poets in The Anxiety of Influence. Throughout this article I shall show how T.S. Eliot has applied some of the ways Bloom describes in reading some of the literary sources, and by so doing Eliot has given new meaning to them.

  5. Returning to Roots: Pinter as Alternative Theatre Playwright

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Michael Devine


    Full Text Available The theatrical oeuvre of Harold Pinter has its origins in the alternative theatre movement in Britain in the late 1950s. This paper will examine two later, well-known plays, The Caretaker and Betrayal, as case studies for an examination of how the alternative theatre elements which informed Pinter’s early work continue to be present in plays which are generally regarded as more theatrically conventional and mainstream. The theatrical context in which Pinter first developed has become obscured by his commercial success and political notoriety. It can be argued that the natural position for this playwright on the theatrical spectrum lies within the fringe and alternative theatre communities. This paper explores the idea that Brook, Brecht and Grotowskian techniques may be more effective, and more organic, to Pinter’s work than the mainly realistic interpretations which became the norm as the playwright’s celebrity increased.

  6. [Cognitive neuroscience of aging: explanatory models]. (United States)

    Grandi, Fabrissio; Tirapu Ustárroz, Javier

    The aim of the cognitive neuroscience of aging is the study of brain activity and the cognitive processes associated with age. In order to understand the dynamics of neurocognitive activity in older people, the present review highlights four explanatory models. The first one (HAROLD) highlights brain bilaterality, mainly in the pre-frontal cortex. The second paradigm (PASA) places special emphasis on neuronal polarisation (anterior-posterior). The third model (CRUNCH) relates the manifest activity of the brain to the level of complexity of the task. The last one (ELSA) emphasises the spatial and temporal distribution of brain activity in the different phases of recovery. Although different in their content, the four explanatory models are perfectly compatible with the findings reported by neuroimaging techniques, suggesting the use of compensation strategies and cognitive reserve for interventions that may help to optimise the performance of older people.

    A number of concepts and ideas from constructivist and second-order cybernetic family therapy literature are presented and their implications for therapy are examined. I was inspired by and, in this article, refer to videotapes of consultations and therapy sessions shown at an international conference on constructivism and family therapy in Sulitjelma, Norway, June 1988, and to written material from the Tromsø group (Tom Andersen and Anna M. Flåm), the Milan team (Luigi Boscolo and Gianfranco Cecchin), and the Galveston team (Harlene Anderson and Harold Goolishian). The article also represents an attempt to use constructivist concepts and ideas in a reflection on the author's own professional development as a psychologist and family therapist.

    Full Text Available On the face of it, contemporary educational research is significantly different in order and kind from the period after WWII when the esteemed American education psychologist, Harold H. Abelson (1948 [1], wrote his essay, “The Role of Educational Research in a Democracy.” The current conditions under which educational researchers labor foreground national and global challenges are quite unlike those he outlined in that heady post war period just prior to its descent into the Cold War. Since Abelson’s progressive reading of the upward arch of the first half of the Twentieth Century’s educational research history, unprecedented global movements of people, money and ideas, revolutionary and expanding modes of communication, and expediential growth in knowledge production and dissemination have broadened and complicated educational research, let alone practice and policy.

    Full Text Available Brett Ley, Harold R Collard Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA Abstract: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic fibrotic lung disease of unknown cause that occurs in adults and has a poor prognosis. Its epidemiology has been difficult to study because of its rarity and evolution in diagnostic and coding practices. Though uncommon, it is likely underappreciated both in terms of its occurrence (ie, incidence, prevalence and public health impact (ie, health care costs and resource utilization. Incidence and mortality appear to be on the rise, and prevalence is expected to increase with the aging population. Potential risk factors include occupational and environmental exposures, tobacco smoking, gastroesophageal reflux, and genetic factors. An accurate understanding of its epidemiology is important, especially as novel therapies are emerging.

  13. Medical humanities and medical alterity in fiction and in life (United States)

    Hurwitz, Brian


    A widely accepted component of any answer to the question ‘What is it to do good medical ethics?’ is the commitment to benefit people’s health, in principlist terminology, ‘beneficence’. This paper addresses deliberate maleficence and the cultural otherness with which it is associated, focusing on the activities of the serial killer Dr Harold Shipman. It finds an uncanny ‘fit’ between the normal operation of healthcare services and this sort of alterity which has attracted little attention from bioethicists but has been addressed by novelists. To the extent that the medical humanities offers useful insights into hard moral problems, its capacities rest on taking account of both the fictional and the real. PMID:25516938

  16. Chondrules: Important, but Possibly Unfathomable (United States)

    Taylor, G. J.


    Chondrules are mysterious little droplets of formerly molten silicate found in chondrite meteorites. Harold C. Connolly Jr. (Rowan University, New Jersey) and Rhian H. Jones (University of Manchester, UK) have written a concise review of the properties of chondrules and ideas for their origin. Over a century of chondrule studies have revealed much about their heating and cooling histories, mineralogy, textures (mineral sizes and how the crystals are intergrown), chemical and isotopic compositions, and ages (old - they formed during the first few million years of Solar System history). Nevertheless, cosmochemists are still uncertain how chondrules formed and whether they inform us of conditions and processes in the protoplanetary disk (also called the solar nebula) or are mere by-products of planet formation.

  2. Rediscovering Clusius. How Dutch Commerce Contributed to the Emergence of Modern Science

    Klaas van Berkel


    Full Text Available H.J. Cook, Matters of exchange. Commerce, medicine, and science in the Dutch Golden AgeRediscovering Clusius. How Dutch Commerce contributed to the Emergence of Modern ScienceIn his highly stimulating book Matters of Exchange. Commerce, Medicine, and Science in the Dutch Golden Age, Harold J. Cook argues that the intellectual activities we call science emerged from ways of knowing that were valued most highly by merchant-rulers. He demonstrates this thesis by describing and analyzing scientific developments in the Dutch Republic. However, both Cook’s one-sided description of the new science and his idealized reconstruction of the mentality of the merchant elite in the Dutch Republic weaken his case considerably. A more ecumenical view of early modern science and a more realistic picture of the values and the conduct of merchants in Europe are needed to bolster an argument that still looks very promising.

  3. Literary Canon of Croatian Renaissance Culture

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Krešimir Šimić


    Full Text Available Croatian Renaissance literary culture did not form its literary in the same way as did the Italians. Therefore, the "canonical order" of sixteenth-century Croatian literary culture is usually associated with the nineteenth-century and twentieth-century synthetic literary history. However, if we have in mind the thesis of Harold Bloom that "canonical writers" are those in whose poetics exhibit "anticanonical elements," or in other words, that all great writers reading their predecessors face the fear of the impact and enable activities of their own imagination, then we can say – albeit very cautiously – that Croatian Renaissance literary culture has at least a few "canonical authors": Mavro Vetranović, Petar Zoranić, Petar Hektorović and Marin Držić

  5. Le mysticisme du livre

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mariana BOCA


    Full Text Available The work is based on the idea that literature is less than her own myth, very active in the last few decades in elitist circles. When Borges wrote the Babel Library, he prefigured an important direction in literary criticism, much more seductive than the discourse analysis and formal hermeneutics. It is the mitologisation of literature, as a superior and unique space for the being. It was born, therefore, in the same era of discourse analysis – a mysticism of the book. The work calls into question the representative positions of Harold Bloom and Toma Pavel to identify their limits and the inability to logically legitimize a mysticism of the book. The argument wants to show that the mysticism of the book is a false mystique and a game of religion, extremely sophisticated but very careful with the stubborn arrogance of the hermeneutic.

  8. Intertextual Re-creation in Jamie O’Neill’s At Swim, Two Boys

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bertrand Cardin


    Full Text Available As the title of the book indicates, Jamie O’Neill’s At Swim, Two Boys, published in 2001, refers back to Flann O’Brien’s At Swim-Two-Birds (1939. Through the use of such a parodic title, O’Neill places himself within a postmodern literary tradition, involving the influence of famous Irish parodists such as O’Brien or Joyce, who overshadow his novel. This title alludes to a famous text, gives it a new meaning, a new story and re-locates it in a different context, namely a gay universe which calls to mind another famous literary predecessor, Oscar Wilde, a writer also referred to repeatedly, whether explicitly or implicitly, throughout the novel. This paper focuses on the intertextual articulations of the novel in connection with the theories advanced by Neil Corcoran, Augustine Martin and Harold Bloom, whose essays take a real interest in the literary phenomenon of intertextuality.

This article also incorporates the use of archival material that shows both authors corresponding about literature and writing, which is also illuminating when investigating the origins of 'Infinite Jest’s' sub-textual meaning. In order to thoroughly describe the theoretical import of this relationship, this article also considers Wallace’s engagement with the critical theories of influence, specifically his overt and creative use of Harold Bloom’s 'The Anxiety of Influence' (1973 in the novel.

  13. Let's talk: a narrative of mental illness, recovery, and the psychotherapist's personal treatment. (United States)

    Sawyer, Annita


    This article describes the author's experience in psychotherapy, beginning as a suicidal teenager with a dismal prognosis, through 5 years of hospitalization, including shock treatment that erased most memory before age 20, through an Ivy League education, and successful professional career. Retraumatization triggered by reading her hospital records 40 years later adds a unique perspective, as the author watched, but could not control, a process within herself that she regularly addressed as therapist with her own patients. Healing aspects of relationships with three psychodynamic psychotherapists (two psychiatrists and a social worker), credited with her survival and success, are examined. A dramatic interview with Harold Searles, her psychiatrist's supervisor, and its role in her recovery is considered. Lasting lessons concerning the healing aspects of psychotherapy, the effects of repressed early trauma encountered late in life, the need to counter stigma, and the value of personal psychotherapy are discussed. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Seidel, R.W.


    In the fall of 1993, 1 was asked by the Center for National Security Studies (CNSS) of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to study the ways in which technology transfer and defense conversion had been accomplished at General Atomics (GA) and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) by interviewing Harold Agnew, who had served as director of Los Alamos before becoming president of General Atomics in 1979, and J. Robert Beyster, who had been a staff member at Los Alamos and at General Atomics before founding SAIC in 1969. Harold Agnew readily complied with my request for an interview and also suggested that I talk to Douglas Fouquet, who is in charge of public relations at General Atomics and is their unofficial historian. Robert Beyster was not available for an interview, but, through the courtesy of John C. Hopkins, a former director of CNSS, I was able to interview SAIC`s executive vice president, Donald M. Kerr, who is also a former director at Los Alamos, and Steven Rockwood, a sector vice president at SAIC who was formerly a staff member at the Laboratory Because Agnew, Kerr, and Rockwood are all familiar with LANL, as well as with their respective companies, the interviews becam exercises In comparative analyses of technology transfer. In what follows, I have tried to summarize both the interviews and some of the research which attended them. It is the historian`s hope that by use of comparative institutional analyses, Laboratory administrators may learn something of value in directing their efforts toward the transfer of technology to private industry and other government agencies.

    Full Text Available Em 1973 Harold Bloom publicou o livro The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry. Uma variação sobre este título poderá ser-nos hoje útil para abordar um outro tipo de ansiedade: o da unidade. Os campos da edição e da interpretação vivem imersos nesse outro tipo de ansiedade. Tanto a interpretação, preocupada com a intenção do autor, da obra ou do leitor, como a edição, angustiada com as intenções finais do autor e o estabelecimento do copy-text, parecem, por vezes, pouco capazes de se libertarem desse ensejo de unidade e de se adaptarem à existência da multiplicidade. Neste artigo, procuro fazer um novo apelo a uma necessária mudança de paradigma, atendendo, em especial, às novas e libertadoras possibilidades potenciadas pela edição electrónica. In 1973 Harold Bloom published his book The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry. A variation on this title might be useful for us today to refer to another kind of anxiety: the anxiety of unity. The fields of editing and interpretation lie within this other kind of anxiety. Interpretation, concerned with the author’s, the reader’s or the work’s intention, and editing, worried about the author’s final intentions and the setting up of the copy-text, seem, at times, unable to free themselves from the need to attain unity and adapt to the existence of multiplicity. In this article I intend to make a new appeal on behalf of a change of paradigm, addressing, especially, the new and liberating possibilities of electronic editing

  20. Evolutionary Dynamics of the wnt Gene Family: A Lophotrochozoan Perspective (United States)

    Cho, Sung-Jin; Vallès, Yvonne; Giani, Vincent C.; Seaver, Elaine C.; Weisblat, David A.


    The wnt gene family encodes a set of secreted glycoproteins involved in key developmental processes, including cell fate specification and regulation of posterior growth (Cadigan KM, Nusse R. 1997. Wnt signaling: a common theme in animal development. Genes Dev. 11:3286–3305.; Martin BL, Kimelman D. 2009. Wnt signaling and the evolution of embryonic posterior development. Curr Biol. 19:R215–R219.). As for many other gene families, evidence for expansion and/or contraction of the wnt family is available from deuterostomes (e.g., echinoderms and vertebrates [Nusse R, Varmus HE. 1992. Wnt genes.

Dev Biol. 300:121–131.]) and ecdysozoans (e.g., arthropods and nematodes [Eisenmann DM. 2005. Wnt signaling. WormBook. 1–17.; Bolognesi R, Farzana L, Fischer TD, Brown SJ. 2008. Multiple Wnt genes are required for segmentation in the short-germ embryo of Tribolium castaneum.

Phylogenetic analysis of the Wnt gene family. Insights from lophotrochozoan members. Curr Biol. 12:1395.]). To obtain a more comprehensive scenario of the evolutionary dynamics of this gene family, we exhaustively mined wnt gene sequences from the whole genome assemblies of a mollusk (Lottia gigantea) and two annelids (Capitella teleta and Helobdella robusta) and examined them by phylogenetic, genetic linkage, intron–exon structure, and embryonic

    Full Text Available A demanda por fontes alternativas de energia tem crescido nos últimos anos em função das variações do preço do petróleo aliadas à recente crise energética. Por meio da digestão anaeróbia é possível transformar os dejetos de suínos em biogás. No presente trabalho, estudou-se a viabilidade econômica do uso do biogás como fonte alternativa para a geração de energia elétrica para diferentes períodos de geração. O método utilizado para a avaliação econômica foi o Valor Presente Líquido. O tempo de retorno do capital investido também foi calculado levando em consideração o desconto da taxa de juros nos fluxos de caixa. O estudo demonstrou ser economicamente viável a utilização do biogás da suinocultura, como fonte para geração de energia elétrica. O aumento da demanda de energia elétrica na propriedade aumenta o Valor Presente Líquido e diminui o tempo de retorno do investimento.The demand for alternative sources of energy has grown in recent years in line with the variation of petroleum prices coupled with the recent energy crisis. Through anaerobic digestion swine manure can be converted into biogas. In the present study it was evaluated the economic viability of using biogas as an alternative source for the production of electricity, for different periods of generation. The method used for the economic evaluation was the Net Present Value (NPV. The time of return on invested capital was also calculated taking into account the discount interest rate on cash flows. The study proved to be economically viable use of biogas from swine manure as a source for generating electricity. The increased demand for electricity in the property increases the Net Present Value and decreases the time required for return of the investment.

    Renata Weber Gonçalves


    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Analisar a evolução de estimativas do gasto federal com o Programa de Saúde Mental desde a promulgação da lei nacional de saúde mental. MÉTODOS: O gasto federal total do Programa de Saúde Mental e seus componentes de gastos hospitalares e extra-hospitalares foi estimado a partir de 21 categorias de gastos de 2001 a 2009. Os valores dos gastos foram atualizados para valores em reais de 2009 por meio da aplicação do Índice de Preços ao Consumidor Amplo. Foi calculado o valor per capita/ano do gasto federal em saúde mental. RESULTADOS: Observou-se o crescimento real de 51,3% do gasto em saúde mental no período. A desagregação do gasto revelou aumento expressivo do valor extra-hospitalar (404,2% e decréscimo do hospitalar (-39,5%. O gasto per capita teve crescimento real menor, embora expressivo (36,2%. A série histórica do gasto per capita desagregado mostrou que em 2006, pela primeira vez, o gasto extra-hospitalar foi maior que o hospitalar. O valor per capita extra-hospitalar teve o crescimento real de 354,0%; o valor per capita hospitalar decresceu 45,5%. CONCLUSÕES: Houve crescimento real dos recursos federais investidos em saúde mental entre 2001 e 2009 e investimento expressivo nas ações extra-hospitalares. Houve inversão no direcionamento dos recursos, a partir de 2006, na direção dos serviços comunitários. O componente do financiamento teve papel crucial como indutor da mudança de modelo de atenção em saúde mental. O desafio para os próximos anos é sustentar e aumentar os recursos para a saúde mental num contexto de desfinanciamento do Sistema Único de Saúde.

  3. Apontamentos para se pensar ações de prevenção à violência pelo setor saúde Notes on the prevention of violence by the health sector

    Sandra Maria Galheigo


    Full Text Available A violência tem sido um dos fenômenos contemporâneos que, além da inquietude social que provoca, causa um contingente substancial de vítimas todos os anos. Medidas de prevenção da violência e de promoção de uma cultura da paz têm sido propostas pelos organismos internacionais como a Organização Mundial da Saúde e a Unesco. O Brasil tem investido esforços nos últimos anos em uma série de legislações e normativas na área da saúde, direcionadas para a prevenção da violência e promoção da saúde, que atendem às recomendações internacionais e avançam de forma mais substancial do que vinha sendo proposto até então pelo setor saúde. Este artigo apresenta essas proposições e suas recomendações e reflete sobre os desdobramentos dessas medidas, diante do questionamento da necessidade de o setor saúde melhorar a humanização do cuidado oferecido por seus profissionais. Levanta os desafios para a capacitação de os profissionais de saúde atenderem as medidas propostas e aproveita para, a luz de Hannah Arendt, refletir sobre os conceitos de violência, poder, autoridade, força e vigor.Violence is one of the contemporary phenomena which has provoked social restlessness and caused a substantial number of victims every year. International organizations, such as WHO and Unesco, have proposed violence prevention measures and the promotion of a culture of peace. For some years now Brazil has been making efforts in creating new legislation in the health sector which may contribute to violence prevention and health promotion, fulfilling international recommendations and advancing substantially if compared with previous initiatives. This paper presents these propositions and their recommendations and discusses the consequences in regard to demands for the humanization of health care provided by practitioners. It points out the challenges for human resources training and, according to Hannah Arendt's ideas, discusses concepts

  4. Contribuição das fontes de sedimentos em uma bacia hidrográfica agrícola sob plantio direto

    Tales Tiecher


    Full Text Available O conhecimento das principais fontes difusas de produção de sedimento pode aumentar a eficiência de utilização dos recursos públicos, investidos em estratégias de gestão em bacias hidrográficas, que visem mitigar a transferência de sedimentos aos cursos d'água. Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar as fontes de sedimentos numa bacia hidrográfica rural de cabeceira com predomínio de cultivos anuais sob plantio direto e com intensa e inadequada exploração dos recursos naturais, por meio da quantificação da contribuição relativa das estradas e das lavouras na produção global de sedimentos. A bacia hidrográfica está localizada no município de Júlio de Castilhos, Rio Grande do Sul. O período de estudo foi de maio de 2009 a abril de 2011. Para a identificação das fontes, foi utilizado o método fingerprinting, que compara os solos de diferentes fontes e os sedimentos que são encontrados em suspensão no canal de drenagem, usando elementos traçadores. O manejo inadequado do solo nas áreas de lavoura, a falta de planejamento das vias de acesso e a ausência de práticas de controle do escoamento superficial, que sejam compatíveis com a fragilidade condicionada pelos solos e pelo relevo da bacia hidrográfica, têm provocado o surgimento de processos erosivos acelerados com efeitos negativos ao agricultor e à sociedade. As estradas apresentam alta porcentagem de contribuição na transferência de sedimentos, mas a contribuição das áreas de lavoura aumenta em precipitações pluviais de alta magnitude. Isso evidencia que a magnitude dos eventos de chuva influencia a proporção de contribuição entre as fontes ao longo do ano na bacia hidrográfica, interferindo no processo de mobilização de sedimentos e nutrientes em direção à rede de drenagem.

    Nilton Cano Martin


    Full Text Available O exercício dos poderes de governança dentro de uma empresa depende em alto grau da implantação de um sistema de identificação, avaliação e controle dos riscos que cercam a gestão dos recursos nela investidos. Como os que exercem a governança não têm poder executivo, fatalmente um desses riscos é o de agenciamento, segundo o qual os administradores dos recursos empresariais, ao darem prioridade aos seus próprios interesses, podem não aplicá-los da forma mais adequada aos acionistas/proprietários. A governança deve, pois, cercar a administração dos recursos empresariais com um sistema de controle de gestão. Esse sistema, que deve levar em consideração os riscos que são inerentes aos negócios e compreende o controle da custódia, do desempenho e da qualidade da informação, é, neste artigo, conceituado e descrito em termos das linhas gerais da sua composição e principais instrumentos. Demonstra-se, finalmente, que tais controles devem ser feitos de forma integrada e unificada num único órgão e que esse órgão deve ser a Controladoria, que deve ser reformulada e ter um posicionamento na estrutura organizacional das empresas totalmente independente dos órgãos de administração. Essas são as bases do chamado novo modelo de Controladoria.Corporate governance highly depends on the installation of a system for the identification, evaluation and control of the risks surrounding the administration of the invested resources. Since Board members do not have executive power, one of the business risks is always the agency risk, according to which business resource managers may put their own interests and priorities ahead of the interests and priorities of the owners/ shareholders. Hence, the Board must surround the administration of business resources with a management control system, considering inherent business risks and encompassing three types of control: custody, performance and information quality.

    Full Text Available No Brasil, a importância da educação superior como forma de produção de conhecimento e de profissionalização tem se intensificado. Tendo consolidado o funcionamento desse sistema, as políticas do Estado de São Paulo voltadas para a área de ensino superior tem investido em programas de expansão do ensino superior para ampliar o número de vagas oferecidas e de ampliar sua distribuição geográfica. Diante dos limites físicos de expansão do ensino superior público paulista emerge a proposta do ensino virtual - uma concepção de educação que ultrapassa os limites geográficos – por meio do programa Universidade Virtual do Estado de São Paulo – UNIVESP. O programa, como abordado no presente artigo, amplia o número de vagas nas três universidades públicas paulistas – USP, UNICAMP E UNESP – utilizando metodologia inovadora, que associa o uso intensivo das tecnologias de informação e comunicação às práticas tradicionais do ensino presencial, o que permite uma grande qualidade na formação dos alunos. In Brazil, the importance of university education as a way of producing knowledge and accomplishing professional abilities is facing a significant increase. In view of that, the Government of State of São Paulo has been adopting policies with a view to investing in programs of expansion of university education, aiming at both increasing the number of people able to attend the university courses and expanding the geographic distribution of such courses. Due to the physical limits imposed to the expansion of public university education in the State of São Paulo, a new concept arises – the virtual education system, offered by the program called “Virtual University of the State of São Paulo”. A concept of education that exceeds geographic limits. Such program, as one may infer from this essay, allows an increase in the number of people attending university courses at the three main public universities in São Paulo

    Full Text Available Copolímeros elastoméricos à base de butadieno são amplamente utilizados na indústria automobilística. Dentre esses destacam-se os copolímeros de butadieno-estireno (SBR e butadieno-acrilonitrila (NBR. O SBR apresenta maior importância comercial, devido a sua aplicação na produção de pneus. Quando SBR é utilizado juntamente com o homopolímero de butadieno BR-alto cis, excelentes propriedades são obtidas para sua aplicação na banda de rodagem de pneus. O copolímero elastomérico NBR é empregado em artefatos em que é necessária boa resistência a solventes orgânicos e a óleos. Nos últimos anos, as empresas automobilísticas e produtoras de pneumáticos vêm se preocupando com o meio-ambiente e, conseqüentemente, têm investido em novos processos de síntese, mais limpos, para a produção desses elastômeros. Assim, o objetivo deste artigo é apresentar uma revisão sobre dois importantes copolímeros elastoméricos à base de butadieno, SBR e NBR, abordando os processos de síntese, características principais, processamento e aplicações.Elastomer copolymers based on butadiene are widely applied in the automotive industry. Among those copolymers the most important ones are styrene-butadiene (SBR and nitrile-butadiene (NBR. SBR presents higher commercial interest, due to its application in the tire production. When SBR is mixed with high cis-1,4 polybutadiene, excellent properties are attained for application on the pneumatics treads. NBR can be used in a wide variety of application areas requiring oil, fuel, and chemical resistance. In the last years, the automotive and pneumatic industries have been increasingly concerned with environmental issues, and have invested in synthesis processes for elastomers that are less aggressive to the environment. Thus, the purpose of this article is to present a review on two important butadiene elastomer copolymers, SBR and NBR, with emphasis on the polymerization processes. The main

El estudio se enmarca en la articulación sociosemiótica propuesta por Mozejko y Costa (2001, 2007, 2010, que toma como punto de partida la pregunta por la relación entre los agentes sociales y sus prácticas discursivas. El interrogante que orienta el desarrollo de este artículo es por qué y cómo la UCR, habiendo sido en la historia reciente de Córdoba quien promovió transformaciones clave tanto en la Constitución de la provincia (Gobierno de la Provincia de Córdoba, 1987,como en su Código de Procesamiento Penal (Cámara de Senadores y Cámara de Diputados de la Provincia de Córdoba, 1991, las cuales introdujeron la participación ciudadana en la justicia; en el año 2004, a contramano, no acompañó el proyecto del ejecutivo provincial que amplió considerablemente la participación de ciudadanos en la justicia penal.

    Full Text Available Realizou-se neste estudo uma análise econômica de sistemas de produção para vacas em lactação manejadas em pastagem de capim-mombaça recebendo diferentes fontes de suplementação volumosa durante a época seca do ano. As suplementações fornecidas foram: pastagem de aveia-preta, cana-forrageira com ureia e silagem de sorgo. Utilizaram-se como indicadores econômicos o valor presente líquido (VPL e a taxa interna de retorno (TIR. Para cada sistema de produção estudado, foi construído um fluxo de caixa, com sua particularidade e índices de desempenhos produtivo e reprodutivo, obtidos experimentalmente. Os fluxos de caixa foram construídos mensalmente para um período de 12 anos e os VPL dos sistemas foram calculados aplicando-se taxas de desconto de 6, 8, 10 e 12% ao ano. Com uma taxa anual de desconto de 8%, todos os sistemas de produção foram viáveis financeiramente. O capital investido apresentou TIR anuais de 11,91% para pastagem de aveia-preta, 9,43% para cana-forrageira e ureia e 8,46% para silagem de sorgo. O item de maior impacto nos resultados econômicos dos sistemas, de acordo com a análise de sensibilidade, foi o preço de venda do leite produzido.An economical analysis of milk production systems was made with lactating cows on Mombaça grass pasture receiving different sources of roughage supplementation during the dry season.

Para avaliar a viabilidade dos métodos propostos, os cálculos dos custos de implantação da cultura, da manutenção da soqueira, de renda bruta anual e das rendas líquidas, foram trazidas ao Valor Presente. Os resultados apontam que, apesar do maior investimento inicial, os métodos inovadores sempre proporcionam maiores lucratividades reais com o passar do tempo e, ainda, que o tempo de recuperação do capital investido também é menor.

    Full Text Available The goal of this paper is to explore the application of some elements of Charles S. Peirce's semiotic phenomenology to the study of social discrimination. Using E. Valentine Daniel's ideas about the "limits of culture" as a point of departure to understand the process of semeiosis, this article argues that situations of social discrimination are a special case of the phenomenon where the process through which percepts are transformed into (new concepts is incomplete. The distinctive element here is the fact that the process of social stigmatization is only effective if capable of semiotically manipulating signs associated to group identities. This manipulation reduces the semiotic complexity of the signs associated with whoever is stigmatized. Susan Gal's three processes of semiotic manipulation, namely iconization, recursiveness, and erasure, and Harold Garfinkel's work on degradation ceremonies will be brought into analysis as relevant cases.

    Full Text Available La conception canonique, telle que formulée par Harold Bloom repose sur la sélection et la hiérarchisation, par des communautés de lecteurs opérant par consensus, d’œuvres possédant des vertus canoniques. Cet article examine l’échec de la formation d’un canon dans le cas des littératures dessinées. Au-delà des facteurs de contingence — stratégies argumentatives des premiers exégètes de la bande dessinée, stratégies éditoriales des éditeurs spécialisés — l’explication réside en partie dans l’étroit assujettissement des littératures dessinées à leur forme éditoriale ainsi que dans la prégnance des images découvertes dans l’enfance — l’un et l’autre empêchant le recul critique et l’établissement d’une liste commune — et, finalement dans l’impossibilité de repérer la singularité de l’œuvre canonique (étrangeté canonique.The criteria of canonicity, as formulated by Harold Bloom, rest upon the concepts of selection and hierarchy, by community of readers, operating by consensus, thus singling out works endowed with canonical virtues. In this paper, we shall try to determine why, in the case of graphic literature, canon-building was a complete failure. Beyond contingent factors such as the rhetorical arguments of the first scholars of French comics, or the marketing strategies of publishing firms specialising in comics, the answer lies in the inseparability of a comic narrative and the periodical in which it is first published, the salience of pictures first discovered in childhood (which prohibits critical scrutiny and selection, and finally the inability to detect canonical strangeness, the main feature of a canonical work.

  18. Paragenesis of multiple platinum-group mineral populations in Shetland ophiolite chromitite: 3D X-ray tomography and in situ Os isotopes (United States)

    Prichard, H. M.; Barnes, Stephen J.; Dale, C. W.; Godel, B.; Fisher, P. C.; Nowell, G. M.


    Chromitite from the Harold's Grave locality in the mantle section of the Shetland ophiolite complex is extremely enriched in Ru, Os and Ir, at μg/g concentrations. High-resolution X-ray computed tomography on micro-cores from these chromitites was used to determine the location, size, distribution and morphology of the platinum-group minerals (PGM). There are five generations of PGM in these chromitites. Small (average 5 μm in equivalent sphere diameter, ESD) euhedral laurites, often with Os-Ir alloys, are totally enclosed in the chromite and are likely to have formed first by direct crystallisation from the magma as the chromite crystallised. Also within the chromitite there are clusters of larger (50 μm ESD) aligned elongate crystals of Pt-, Rh-, Ir-, Os- and Ru-bearing PGM that have different orientations in different chromite crystals. These may have formed either by exsolution, or by preferential nucleation of PGMs in boundary layers around particular growing chromite grains. Thirdly there is a generation of large (100 μm ESD) composite Os-Ir-Ru-rich PGM that are all interstitial to the chromite grains and sometimes form in clusters. It is proposed that Os, Ir and Ru in this generation were concentrated in base metal sulfide droplets that were then re-dissolved into a later sulfide-undersaturated magma, leaving PGM interstitial to the chromite grains. Fourthly there is a group of almost spherical large (80 μm ESD) laurites, hosting minor Os-Ir-Ru-rich PGM that form on the edge or enclosed in chromite grains occurring in a sheet crosscutting a chromitite layer. These may be hosted in an annealed late syn- or post magmatic fracture. Finally a few of the PGM have been deformed in localised shear zones through the chromitites. The vast majority of the PGM - including small PGM enclosed within chromite, larger interstitial PGM and elongate aligned PGM - have Os isotope compositions that give Re-depletion model ages approximately equal to the age of the

    Full Text Available O que levará um pintor a interessar-se pela pintura de outro pintor do passado? Como se processa esse uso e abuso? O que revela uma pintura? Analisar as obras-mestras do passado consiste essencialmente em demonstrar o mecanismo da criação e revelar os meios usados. Não se pode criar uma forma original sem se abrir a formas do passado. Quando Harold Bloom diz que Shakespeare lê de um modo mais completo do que pode ser lido, leva-nos a interrogar se um pintor não vê de um modo mais completo do que poder ser visto. Os artistas que inovam estão profundamente ligados à tradição e praticam a lição da pintura pela pintura. As variações ou recriações artísticas são um diálogo íntimo com a obra, são o desvendar de um enigma e uma história da arte feita pelos pintores.What may lead a painter to become interested in the painting of another painter from the past? How does it work, that use and abuse? What does reveal a painting? To analyse master works from the past consists essentially in evidencing the mechanisms of creativity and revealing the means which were used. One can not create an original form without opening oneself to the forms of the past. When Harold Bloom says that Shakespeare reads in a more thoroughly manner than it can ever be read, he makes one wonder if - like wise - a painter does not see in a more thoroughly manner than it can ever be seen. Innovative artists are deeply linked to tradition and practice a lesson of painting by the painting itself. The variations or artistic recreations are an intimate dialogue with the work, they are the revelation of an enigma and an art history made by the painters.

  4. B. F. Skinner and technology's nation: Technocracy, social engineering, and the good life in 20th-century America. (United States)

    Rutherford, Alexandra


    Psychologist B. F. Skinner developed and promoted a technology of behavior as the basis for widespread social reform over much of his career. In 1948, he published his behaviorally engineered vision of the good life in his utopian novel Walden Two (Skinner, 1948). Skinner's efforts were part of a much larger social engineering tradition that received one of its fullest expressions in the Technocracy Movement of the 1930s. Fifteen years before Skinner's Walden Two, at the height of the Technocracy Movement's public visibility in the United States, technocrat Harold Loeb (1933/1996) published his utopia, Life in a Technocracy: What It Might Be Like. In this article, I place the socially engineered visions of the good life promoted by the Technocracy Movement and by Skinner on an intellectual and ideological continuum to amplify and explore American attitudes toward psychology, technology, and social engineering during the middle decades of the 20th century. I argue that responses to both reveal the possibilities and limits of the social engineering enterprise, and suggest that historians of technology might consider how the history of psychology and other psy-disciplines can deepen conceptualizations of the relationships among the psychological, the social, and the technological in this period.

  6. Profiles of cognitive appraisals and triangulation into interparental conflict: Implications for adolescent adjustment. (United States)

    Fosco, Gregory M; Bray, Bethany C


    Youth appraisals and triangulation into conflicts are key mechanisms by which interparental conflict places youth at risk for psychological maladjustment. Although evidence suggests that there are multiple mechanisms at work (e.g., Fosco & Feinberg, 2015; Grych, Harold, & Miles, 2003), this body of work has relied on variable-centered analyses that are limited to the unique contributions of each process to the variance in outcomes. In reality, it is possible that different combinations of these risk mechanisms may account for multifinality in risk outcomes. Using latent profile analysis (LPA) we examined profiles of threat appraisals, self-blaming attributions, and triangulation in relation to internalizing and externalizing problems in a sample of 285, ethnically diverse high school students. The current analyses revealed 5 distinct profiles of appraisals and triangulation, including an overall low-risk group and a global high-risk group, in which all 3 processes were below average or above average, respectively. Additional profiles included combinations of threat and blame, threat and triangulation, and blame and triangulation. Links between these profiles and emotional distress, problem behavior, and academic outcomes are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved).

  7. Stories and maps, images and archives: multimethod approach to the political ecology of native property rights and natural resource management in Sabah, Malaysia. (United States)

    Doolittle, Amity A


    The study of human-environmental relations is complex and by nature draws on theories and practices from multiple disciplines. There is no single research strategy or universal set of methods to which researchers must adhere. Particularly for scholars interested in a political ecology approach to understanding human-environmental relationships, very little has been written examining the details of "how to" design a project, develop appropriate methods, produce data, and, finally, integrate multiple forms of data into an analysis. A great deal of attention has been paid, appropriately, to the theoretical foundations of political ecology, and numerous scholarly articles and books have been published recently. But beyond Andrew Vayda's "progressive contextualization" and Piers Blaikie and Harold Brookfield's "chains of explanation," remarkably little is written that provides a research model to follow, modify, and expand. Perhaps one of the reasons for this gap in scholarship is that, as expected in interdisciplinary research, researchers use a variety of methods that are suitable (and perhaps unique) to the questions they are asking. To start a conversation on the methods available for researchers interested in adopting a political ecology perspective to human-environmental interactions, I use my own research project as a case study. This research is by no means flawless or inclusive of all possible methods, but by using the details of this particular research process as a case study I hope to provide insights into field research that will be valuable for future scholarship.

  8. Innis and the Emergence of Canadian Communication/Media Studies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robert E. Babe


    Full Text Available The discussion in this paper examines the influence of Harold Innis’ medium theory on contemporary media and communication scholarship in Canada and abroad. The methodological construction of Innis’ medium theory comprises several dimensions including: media bias; the exercising of power through the use and control of media; the bias of communication media toward favouring control over space and control through time; the role of governance in overcoming the bias inherent in media; a materialist understanding of civilizations; space-media outpacing time-media; and dialectics. In this paper particular attention is given to two issues. The first is the connections between Innis’ political economy approach and the work of Marshall McLuhan on the one hand, and the ecological studies of David Suzuki on the other. Both McLuhan and Suzuki, it is argued, may be seen as filling in important gaps in Innis’ work. The second focuses on the reasons why Innis’ medium theory has struck a chord with the Canadian psyche. This stands in stark contrast to the apparent neglect of Innis’ work within American media and communication scholarship.

  9. Hydro-Balanced Stuffing Box field test

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Giangiacomo, L.A.


    The Hydro-Balanced Stuffing Box is a seal assembly for polished rod pumping installations commonly used in oil and gas pumping well installations to contain produced well fluids. The improved stuffing box was developed and patented by Harold H. Palmour of The Palmour Group of Livingston, TX. The stuffing box is designed to reduce the incidence of seal leakage and to utilize an environmentally safe fluid, so that if there is any leakage, environmental damage is reduced or eliminated. The unit was tested on two wells at the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center. During the test period, the performance of the stuffing box was measured by monitoring the pressure on the tubing and the inner chamber with a Barton Two-pen recorder. The amount of safe fluid consumed, fluid leakage at the top of the stuffing box, pressure supplied from the nitrogen bottle, ambient temperature, and polish rod temperature was recorded. The stuffing box is capable of providing a better seal between well fluids an d the environment than conventional stuffing boxes. It allows the polished rod to operate cooler and with lubrication, extending the life of the packing elements, and reducing the amount of attention required to prevent leakage.

    Full Text Available The system of copyright offers more than contemporary perceptions would have us believe. Embedded within its design of control are ethical measures which enhance creative liberty. Properly handled, such measures facilitate the use, and protection, of the common stock of knowledge. This paper examines the intricacies of copyright via the contribution of Harold A. Innis (1894-1952. His expertise with communication, economics, and the law touch the very ambit of copyright. His passion for creating an atmosphere conducive to individual creative liberty has direct relevance to the goals of copyright. Copyright is deemed to function as the means to encourage both creativity and respect for individuality. The late James Carey (1934-2006 said, “Innis’ books . . . are not merely things to read, but things to think with” (Carey, 1981: 73. Innis’ ideas, particularly his belief that creativity is fostered through the interaction of mainstream thinking with conditions wrought by life in the periphery, show themselves not only in the construction of Canadian copyright law, but in recent interpretation as well.

    Full Text Available The objective of this work was to compare the species richness, abundance and diversity of Scarabaeidae beetles in two types of habitats (field and forest, and to assess whether their seasonal variation is related to climatic variables. This study was conducted in the São Donato Biological Reserve, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil (Pampa biome. Beetles were collected using pitfall traps between January 2012 and January 2013. A total of 125 individuals were collected, of which six genera and 11 species from four subfamilies of Scarabaeidae were identified. 54 individuals of five species were collected from the field, and 71 individuals of eight species were collected from the forest. The most abundant species were Ataenius picinus Harold, 1868, Canthon lividus Blanchard, 1845 and Leucothyreus lavipes Eschscholtz, 1822, which together accounted for 86.4% of all individuals captured. The highest total number of individuals was collected in summer (78, and the highest number of species was collected in spring (9. Differences in environmental structure (and associated climate and food resource availability may be decisive and limiting factors for beetle occurrence in forest versus field areas, as various species were restricted to a specific habitat type or season.

  15. Entropy and the Magic Flute (United States)

    Morowitz, Harold J.


    Harold Morowitz has long been highly regarded both as an eminent scientist and as an accomplished science writer. The essays in The Wine of Life , his first collection, were hailed by C.P. Snow as "some of the wisest, wittiest and best informed I have ever read," and Carl Sagan called them "a delight to read." In later volumes he established a reputation for a wide-ranging intellect, an ability to see unexpected connections and draw striking parallels, and a talent for communicating scientific ideas with optimism and wit. With Entropy and the Magic Flute , Morowitz once again offers an appealing mix of brief reflections on everything from litmus paper to the hippopotamus to the sociology of Palo Alto coffee shops. Many of these pieces are appreciations of scientists that Morowitz holds in high regard, while others focus on health issues, such as America's obsession with cheese toppings. There is also a fascinating piece on the American Type Culture Collection, a zoo or warehouse for microbes that houses some 11,800 strains of bacteria, and over 3,000 specimens of protozoa, algae, plasmids, and oncogenes. Here then are over forty light, graceful essays in which one of our wisest experimental biologists comments on issues of science, technology, society, philosophy, and the arts.

  16. Discovery of the Earth's core (United States)

    Brush, Stephen G.


    In 1896 when Emil Wiechert proposed his model of the Earth with an iron core and stony shell, scientists generally believed that the entire earth was a solid as rigid as steel. R. D. Oldham's identification of P and S waves in seismological records allowed him to detect a discontinuity corresponding to a boundary between core and shell (mantle) in 1906, and Beno Gutenberg established the depth of this boundary as 2900 km. But failure to detect propagation of S waves through the core was not sufficient evidence to persuade seismologists that it is fluid (contrary to modern textbook statements). Not until 1926 did Harold Jeffreys refute the arguments for solidity and establish that the core is liquid. In 1936 Inge Lehmann discovered the small inner core. K. E. Bullen argued, on the basis of plausible assumptions about compressibility and density, that the inner core is solid. Attempts to find seismic signals that have passed through the inner core as S waves have so far failed (with one possible exception), but analysis of free oscillations provided fairly convincing evidence for its solidity.

  17. From Room to Tomb: Moonlight

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dilek Inan


    Full Text Available In 1993, a decade of directly political plays was followed by Moonlight, which in the Guardian’s words would “come as a shock to those who have lately pigeonholed Harold Pinter as a writer of bruising polemic” (Billington 1993, 1. Although Moonlight made history as Pinter’s first full length work for the theatre since Betrayal, it should rather be seen as an interval from politics where the playwright re-explores the interior landscapes of his early work, where he returns to the pastoral as a landscape of retreat and fantasy. Indeed, the play’s title suggests a pastoral realm. The heroine retreats into Nature through linguistic idealisation. Moonlight can best be comprehended as Pinter briefly leaving politics to explore new horizons – “his own private griefs and anguish in the most nakedly and unashamedly emotional of all his plays” (Billington 1996, 338. This paper evaluates Moonlight as a reworking of Pinter’s own roots thematically, stylistically and spatially.

  18. From sick role to practices of health and illness. (United States)

    Frank, Arthur W


    Health care research generally, and medical education research specifically, make increasingly sophisticated use of social science methods, but these methods are often detached from the theories that are the substantive core of the social sciences. Enhanced understanding of theory is especially valuable for gaining a broader perspective on how issues in medical education reflect the social processes that contextualise them. This article reviews five social science theories, emphasising their relevance to medical education, beginning with the emergence of the sociology of health and illness in the 1950s, with Talcott Parsons' concept of the 'sick role'. Four turning points since Parsons are then discussed with reference to the theory developed by, respectively, Harold Garfinkel, Michel Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu, and what is called the 'narrative or dialogical turn'. In considering these, the author argues for a theory-grounded research that relates specific problems to what Max Weber called the 'fate of our times'. The conclusion considers how medical education research can critique the reproduction of a discourse of scarcity in health care, rather than participating in this discourse and legitimating the disciplinary techniques that it renders self-evident. © Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2013.

  19. Equal Protection Under the Law: Do Female Justices have a Different Voice?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Katherine Jorgensen


    Full Text Available As women take on a continuously larger role in the legal field, it has become tremendously important to study and understand the impact women are having on the judicial system. This work explores the role of women in the judiciary. Specifically, I examine the Supreme Court of the United States to find out whether women’s jurisprudence differs from that of their male colleagues. For this paper, I limit my examination to cases involving equal protection under the law. The theory I employ is that of Carol Gilligan, who argues that across many realms, women have a uniquely different voice than men (1982. Through a quantitative analysis of 49 cases dealing with issues of equal protection under the law, I show that Gilligan’s theory helps us understand how cases are decided in the United States Supreme Court. Additionally, I show how the “Different Voice” model improves upon existing models of judicial decision making by Lee Epstein, Jeffrey Segal, and Harold Spaeth. This paper expands current gender and politics literature, which had previously used Gilligan’s insights to examine U.S. state legislatures, by analyzing decision making in the Supreme Court. This paper thus illustrates that women, due to their unique life experiences, have a different understanding of the law in regards to equality and equal protection under the law.

  20. U S spacesuits

    Thomas, Kenneth S


    Spacesuits are far more than garments. They are a personalized spacecraft that allows direct contact and interaction with everything beyond our world, and a last refuge for survival in a disaster. Creating safe, reliable, and comfortable spacesuits is an ongoing challenge that has spanned over four decades. "U. S. Spacesuits, 2nd Edition" by Kenneth S. Thomas and Harold J. McMann details the technical evolution of U. S. spacesuits from their roots in high altitude aviation and vacuum tube development to present day, with an additional look into the future. This primary source of spacesuit information explains the functions, historical development, and use of spacesuits from a worldwide perspective. In this new edition, the authors update the story of U.S. spacesuit development and efforts, from the design challenges modern engineers face to the latest roles of spacesuits in space exploration. The book also provides a close up look at NASA's new Constellation Space Suit System as well as Apollo prototype confi...

  1. Drone Warfare: Twenty-First Century Empire and Communications

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kevin Howley


    Full Text Available This paper, part of a larger project that examines drones from a social-construction of technology perspective, considers drone warfare in light of Harold Innis’s seminal work on empire and communication. Leveraging leading-edge aeronautics with advanced optics, data processing, and networked communication, drones represent an archetypal “space-biased” technology. Indeed, by allowing remote operators and others to monitor, select, and strike targets from half a world away, and in real-time, these weapon systems epitomize the “pernicious neglect of time” Innis sought to identify and remedy in his later writing. With Innis’s time-space dialectic as a starting point, then, the paper considers drones in light of a longstanding paradox of American culture: the impulse to collapse the geographical distance between the United States and other parts of the globe, while simultaneously magnifying the cultural difference between Americans and other peoples and societies. In the midst of the worldwide proliferation of drones, this quintessentially sublime technology embodies this (disconnect in important, profound, and ominous ways.

  2. Update on the distribution of the invasive Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, in the U.S. and Canada (United States)

    Choudhury, A.; Charipar, E.; Nelson, P.; Hodgson, J.R.; Bonar, S.; Cole, Rebecca A.


    The documented range of the invasive and potentially pathogenic Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 in the United States and Canada is updated based on examination of museum depositions and original field collections. Gravid specimens of B. acheilognathi were collected from the fathead minnow Pimephales promelas Rafinesque in Peter Lake, at the University of Notre Dame Environmental Research Center (UNDERC) Land o' Lakes, Wisconsin. A single immature specimen of the parasite was collected from a white bass, Morone chrysops (Rafinesque) in Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This is the first record of B. acheilognathi in Canada and extends its northern range in the interior of the continent by more than 600 miles over the last documented record. The previous record of B. acheilognathi in Canada, from the northern pikeminnow, Ptychocheilus oregonensis in British Columbia, is a misidentification of Eubothrium tulipai. Examination of selected records of intestinal cestodes from native cyprinids, in the Harold W. Manter Laboratory of Parasitology (HWML, n = 9) collection and in the United States National Parasite Collection (USNPC, n = 8), provided evidence of the parasite in Nebraska and possibly in the upper Colorado River basin. Introductions into Wisconsin-Michigan were due to the stocking of golden shiners, whereas the source of the introduction in Manitoba remains unknown.

  3. Consent and counter-mobilization: the case of the national smokers alliance. (United States)

    Givel, Michael


    Throughout the 1990s, health advocates engaged in a significant mobilization against the dangers of tobacco use and the tobacco industry. In 1993, the tobacco industry counter-mobilized through the National Smokers Alliance (NSA), a public relations created front group funded by the tobacco industry, which operated nationally from 1994 to 1999 to advocate for adults using tobacco products without vigorous regulation or increased tobacco taxes. The mobilization by health groups utilized traditional political lobbying and education of the public and public officials without a national public relations created front group to mold public opinion. The counter-mobilization by the NSA was based on traditional lobbying approaches in conjunction with the use of the public relations oriented consent engineering theory of Edward Bernays, Harold Lasswell, and others. This consent engineering theory calls for public relations specialists using public relations to mold public opinion to support a client's preferred public policy outputs. Despite the use of traditional lobbying in conjunction with the use of public relations efforts, attempts by the NSA to dominate public policy to weaken or neutralize stronger tobacco regulations and taxes were effective only for some campaigns.

  4. Is the coal industry worth protecting? An examination of the effects of competing advocacy coalitions on implementation of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of 1977 (United States)

    Pennington, Michael Sean

    Harold Lasswell (1936) defined politics as the exploration of "who gets what, when, and how." As such, one of the central concerns of democratic governance is the role that affected interests play not only in politics, but in the implementation of adopted policies as well. In this dissertation, I use both comparative method case studies, as well as pooled-time series statistical techniques, to examine the effects of political, economic and market forces, and competition between the affected interests on implementation of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. The findings of this, as well as previous, research shows that state-level implementing agencies have some discretion in enforcement activities; however, closer examination shows that this discretion is rarely used. This lack of use of regulatory discretion by the state-level implementing agencies suggests that in most states, there is either sufficient competition between the affected interests to neutralize the excessive use of discretion in enforcement activity, or that there is insufficient pressure placed on the implementing agencies by the affected interests to warrant the use of discretion.

  5. Q-Thruster Breadboard Campaign Project (United States)

    White, Harold


    Dr. Harold "Sonny" White has developed the physics theory basis for utilizing the quantum vacuum to produce thrust. The engineering implementation of the theory is known as Q-thrusters. During FY13, three test campaigns were conducted that conclusively demonstrated tangible evidence of Q-thruster physics with measurable thrust bringing the TRL up from TRL 2 to early TRL 3. This project will continue with the development of the technology to a breadboard level by leveraging the most recent NASA/industry test hardware. This project will replace the manual tuning process used in the 2013 test campaign with an automated Radio Frequency (RF) Phase Lock Loop system (precursor to flight-like implementation), and will redesign the signal ports to minimize RF leakage (improves efficiency). This project will build on the 2013 test campaign using the above improvements on the test implementation to get ready for subsequent Independent Verification and Validation testing at Glenn Research Center (GRC) and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in FY 2015. Q-thruster technology has a much higher thrust to power than current forms of electric propulsion (7x Hall thrusters), and can significantly reduce the total power required for either Solar Electric Propulsion (SEP) or Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP). Also, due to the high thrust and high specific impulse, Q-thruster technology will greatly relax the specific mass requirements for in-space nuclear reactor systems. Q-thrusters can reduce transit times for a power-constrained architecture.

    Full Text Available Polish contemporary drama (which is represented by a range of authors, from Tadeusz Różewicz and Sławomir Mrożek, Janusz Głowacki, Wiesław Myśliwski, Eustachy Rylski, Marek Koterski and Tadeusz Słobodzianek to Przemysław Wojcieszek, Michał Walczak, Piotr Tomaszuk, Tomasz Man and Dorota Masłowska seems to be an integral part and a special, local manifestation of profound changes that have taken place in the European and American drama of the 20th and 21st centuries. Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco, Tennessee Williams, Harold Pinter, John Osborne and Edward Albee influenced Polish dramaturgy, i.e. its general concept and philosophy, in many ways. They were pioneers and patrons of this transformation, just as Miron Białoszewski was in Poland. New Polish dramaturgy continues to go in this direction while looking for modern means of theatrical expression.

  7. Oral Histories in Meteoritics and Planetary Science—XXI: Donald Burnett (United States)

    Sears, Derek W. G.


    In this interview, Donald Burnett (Fig. 1) describes how he applied to the University of Chicago, with considerable support from his father, where he took classes from Harold Urey and was inspired by Ed Anders to pursue a career in nuclear chemistry and, later, cosmochemistry. As a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley, Don learned to use charged-particle tracks as a detector for radioactive nuclei, a technique that he applied to a wide variety of problems over the next 20 years, including the neutron profile probe that was deployed on the Moon. After a one-year postdoc with William Fowler at the California Institute of Technology, he became involved with Jerry Wasserburg, who ultimately obtained a faculty position for him in the Geology Division. Since then, Don has worked on a number of fundamental problems in cosmochemistry, chronology of the solar system, the initial Pu/U abundance, fractionation of U and Pu in igneous processes, and elemental abundances. This last interest led him to advocate, propose, and lead the Genesis space mission to collect and return samples of the solar wind. The crash of the return capsule caused alarm, but some aspects of the mission were unaffected and others have been successfully handled, so that several major new results have been published: the lack of an SEP component in lunar samples, the Ne and Ar composition of the solar wind, and, most importantly, the oxygen and nitrogen isotopic composition of the Sun. Don received the Leonard Medal in 2012.

  8. An idiosyncratic history of burn scars. (United States)

    Petro, Jane A


    The history of burn scars can best be found in military medical history. The care of wounded soldiers documented in the Illiad reflected the trauma of the weapons of war, arrow, spear, sword, and ax. The introduction of gunpowder in the 14th century, increasingly sophisticated explosives, and in modern times, petroleum-driven vehicles, including airplanes, created a new subset of wounds requiring attention and post-survival scars challenging the quality of survival. This article selects from among a myriad of examples of modern military treatments as they relate to those survivors. Larrey, with Napolean's Grand Army, Sir Harold Gilles during and following World War I, and the Boston area preparation and response to the Cocoanut Grove Fire in 1942 are the principle topics examined. Recent modern interventions, related to the survival of horrific blast and burn injuries, with modern wound care and scar manipulation techniques provide context to the current ability to modify healing and scars. ©2015 Frontline Medical Communications.

  9. A checklist of beetles (Insecta, Coleoptera) on pig carcasses in the suburban area of southwestern China: A preliminary study and its forensic relevance. (United States)

    Lyu, Zhou; Wan, Li-Hua; Yang, Yong-Qiang; Tang, Rui; Xu, Lyu-Zi


    Examining the succession pattern of carrion insects on vertebrate carcasses is widely accepted as an effective method to estimate the postmortem interval (PMI) of decayed bodies. Investigation of the community of sarcosaprophagous insects, especially flies and beetles, is the foundation of the succession pattern study. This study aimed to investigate the sarcosaprophagous beetles succession on animal carcasses in the suburban area of southwestern China and to establish a basic catalog for forensic application. The present study was conducted in 2013 in a mountain in Chongqing municipality with modified Schoenly traps. Carcasses of miniature pig were used to simulate human bodies. For most carcasses, five decomposition stages were observed. A total of 2108 adult coleopterans belonging to at least 61 species and 18 families were collected in the study, and most of the specimens occurred at the advanced decay stage. Omosita colon (Linnaeus, 1758), Necrodes nigricornis (Harold, 1875), Necrobia ruficollis (Fabricius, 1775) and Neosilusa ceylonica (Kraatz, 1857) were the dominant species.

  10. Rescuing psychoanalysis from Freud: the common project of Stekel, Jung and Ferenczi. (United States)

    Rudnytsky, Peter L


    This article offers an extended discussion of Wilhelm Stekel's "On the History of the Analytic Movement" (1926), published in English translation for the first time in "Psychoanalysis and History" 7(1) in 2005. It begins with a critique of the presentation of Stekel's text by Jaap Bos, who takes a purely rhetorical approach that seeks to exclude a psychological analysis of the author's motives. Bos's characterization of Stekel is likewise contested as unduly negative in crucial respects. The second section argues that it remains the task of the historian to search for truth. Attacks on the credibility of Jung by Harold Blum and Kurt Eissler are shown to reflect a bias that causes them to neglect the empirical evidence corroborating Jung's testimony concerning key events in his relationship to Freud. The third section lays out the numerous ways in which Stekel, Jung and Ferenczi independently arrived at remarkably similar judgements concerning Freud's character, and how his human failings exerted a harmful effect on the development of psychoanalysis. The final section moves to a discussion of how Stekel joins with Jung and Ferenczi in defining a common project of rescuing what is best in psychoanalysis from Freud's demands for personal loyalty and his attempts to subjugate his followers to intellectual tyranny.

    Bays HE


    Full Text Available Harold E Bays Louisville Metabolic and Atherosclerosis Research Center, Louisville, KY, USA Abstract: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM is characterized by hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, and/or progressive loss of β-cell function. T2DM patients are at increased risk of micro- and macrovascular disease, and are often considered as representing an atherosclerotic coronary heart disease (CHD risk equivalent. Interventions directed at glucose and lipid level control in T2DM patients may reduce micro- and macrovascular disease. The optimal T2DM agent is one that lowers glucose levels with limited risk for hypoglycemia, and with no clinical trial evidence of worsening CHD risk. Lipid-altering drugs should preferably reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and apolipoprotein B (apo B and have evidence that the mechanism of action reduces CHD risk. Statins reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and apo B and have evidence of improving CHD outcomes, and are thus first-line therapy for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. In patients who do not achieve optimal lipid levels with statin therapy, or who are intolerant to statin therapy, add-on therapy or alternative therapies may be indicated. Additional available agents to treat hypercholesterolemic patients with T2DM include bile acid sequestrants, fibrates, niacin, and ezetimibe. This review discusses the use of these alternative agents to treat hypercholesterolemia in patients with T2DM, either as monotherapy or in combination with statin therapy.

    Deloya, Cuauhtémoc; Parra-Tabla, Victor; Delfín-González, Hugo


    Beetles were collected from April 2002 to July 2003 from the following sites in the centre of the state of Veracruz located every 200 m along an altitudinal gradient (1000 - 1400 m asl): three fragments of cloud forest, three shaded coffee plantations, an open canopy coffee plantation, secondary forest, and a pasture. A total of 9,982 specimens were captured, belonging to the families Scarabaeidae and Trogidae, and representing 21 genera and 50 species. The genera Ataenius Harold, Onthophagus Latreille and Aphodius Illiger represented 48% of the species of Scarabaeidae. Species richness was found to decrease with increasing altitude; there were 36 species at 1000 m asl, 27 species between 1200 and 1300 m asl, and 26 species at 1400 m asl. Abundance along the altitudinal gradient follows a pattern of few abundant species and many species with few specimens. Beetle activity is related to precipitation. In the nine communities studied, species richness was observed to increase when precipitation was greater than 100 mm at the beginning of the rainy season. On the landscape scale, there were 44 species during the rainy season, 22 during the windy nortes season, and 24 during the dry season. In terms of trophic guild, 40% of the beetles captured were saprophagous that feed on decomposing organic material from plants and 60% were saprophagous that feed on decomposing organic material from animals (30% necrophagous, 26% coprophagous, 4% telio-necrophagous).

  14. Can the Effects of Religion and Spirituality on Both Physical and Mental Health be Scientifically Measured? An Overview of the Key Sources, with Particular Reference to the Teachings of Said Nursi. (United States)

    Turner, Mahshid


    Within Western secular societies, everything has to be substantiated by empirical evidence; this means it has to be quantifiable and measurable. Research, particularly quantitative research, then, is the criterion by which everything, including religion, is either accepted or rejected. The separation of religion from science began with the Renaissance, the Reformation and the advent of the Enlightenment. It was perceived that religion did not match the language of science and that there was no logical proof or empirical evidence for the existence of God. Religion therefore, due to its inability to be measured and quantified, has since been largely marginalised. In recent times, in order to integrate 'religion' into everyday life, attempts have been made to argue and bring in scientific proof for the effectiveness of religion for improved health and well-being. The psychiatrist Harold Koenig has been one of the key people whose collation of research evidence has shown that religion has a positive effect on both physical and mental health. By looking firstly at the definitions of religion and spirituality and then discussing various opinions from both secular and religious perspectives, including those of Said Nursi, this paper aimed to determine whether religion and spirituality can indeed be measured.

    Rodrigo Corrêa Martins Machado


    Full Text Available A relação dialógica que há entre Sena e Camões é inegável e permite que se façam variadas incursões no que diz respeito ao diálogo entre eles. Por isso, investigar a leitura “maneirista” que Jorge de Sena faz acerca da obra camoniana e como ele entende ser uma obra de arte maneirista pode ajudar a crítica de ambos os autores a entender melhor a relação entre a poética deles, uma vez que, na esteira de Harold Bloom, acredito que dialogar é manter viva uma chama, é reconhecer a grandiosidade de um texto, dando-lhe presságios de ressurreição. A partir dessa leitura que proponho, é possível apontar em Sena pontos nodais de escrita que, inegavelmente, são devedores dos ensinamentos camonianos, como o humanismo, a problematização da condição moderna do sujeito, a subversão à ordem, a ética da escrita relacionada de maneira direta ao Outro.

  17. Evocative allusions in Matthew: Matthew 5:5 as a test case

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robert L. Brawley


    Full Text Available Combining theories of intertextuality and abductive reasoning, this article demonstrates the figurative nature of scriptural allusions in Matthew. Allusions form figurations that open new perspectives for readers inasmuch as the source text and the new text stand in a tensive relationship in which each modifies the other and in which together they evoke meaning beyond the mere sum of the two independent texts. Allusions also form figurations inasmuch as arguments that are analogous to logic. Surprising, original, uncanny correlations between the source text and the new text involve what Charles Peirce called abductive reasoning which also challenges constructs of reality. This article interprets Matthew 5:5 as an allusion to the Abrahamic promise of the inheritance of the land and the blessing of all the families of the earth mediated through Psalm 36 (LXX and describes the figurative nature of the allusion using Harold Bloom’s revisionary ratios. Another version of the article will also be published in Kim, P & Ringe, S (eds, Literary encounters with the reign of God: Essays in honor of Robert C Tannehill, Harrisburg, PA: Trinity Press International (Forthcoming.

    Sylvie Chokron


    Full Text Available In order to study the effect of normal aging and cardiovascular disease on selective attention, a letter-identification task was proposed to younger and older healthy adults as well as patients with a recent myocardial infarction or a recent coronary artery bypass grafting. Participants had to detect either a big stimulus or a small one surrounded by flanking letters. The stimuli were displayed horizontally, either in the left (LVF or in the right visual field (RVF. The interaction between the type of stimulus and the hemifield of presentation reached significance in all groups except in patients who underwent a coronary artery bypass. Only young normal adults showed the expected significant RVF advantage when detecting big stimuli and an LVF advantage when detecting small stimuli surrounded by flankers. In older control adults and in patients with myocardial infarction, the RVF advantage for the condition with selective attention vanished. In patients who underwent a coronary artery bypass, reaction times were increased and no hemispheric specialization for selective attention emerged. The results are discussed with regard to the hypothesis of a Hemispheric Asymmetry Reduction in Older Adults (HAROLD model and to the presence of cognitive dysfunction consecutive to cardiovascular disease.

  19. Review Article: Ancient Galilee and the realities of the Roman Empire

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Markus Cromhout


    Full Text Available This review article summarises and delivers comment on Religion, ethnicity and identity in Ancient Galilee: A region in transition, edited by Jürgen Zangenberg, Harold W. Attridge and Dale B. Martin and published by Mohr Siebeck in 2007. The majority of the articles in this volume testify of a ‘Jewish’ or rather Judean Galilee in the 1st century. It was a region that had cultural, economic, social, political and religious contact with surrounding areas and was thoroughly integrated into the realities of the Roman Empire. Whilst interregional contact and trade occurred freely, resistance and conflict occurred due to the proximity of ‘the Other’ that threatened the cultural and religio-political sensitivities of the Galileans. The Galileans also had strong attachments to aspects of their Judean identity, as evidenced by their enhanced musical culture, conservative epigraphic habit, participation in the revolt and the following of cultural practices also found in Judea. Based on this collection of articles, there are a few areas that need further investigation: how and when did the region fall under Hasmonean control and what was the exact nature of the local population at that time? At the time of Antipas, were Galilean peasants generally experiencing harsh economic conditions, or did his rule allow for economic participation to flourish? The exact context of Jesus’ ministry, therefore, is still a matter to be decided and invites further investigation.

  20. Psychologists' social representations of conformity: Conformity – birth or death of individuality

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Janez Bečaj


    Full Text Available When discussing conformity, modern social psychological literature draws its conclusions mostly from the classical sources written by the mid twentieth century authors such as Muzafer and CarolynSherif, Leon Festinger, Solomon Asch, Morton Deutsch, and Harold B. Gerard. A detailed scrutiny of these texts, however, reveals that many of today's widely accepted "findings" from that era are in fact not supported by the classical literature. Surprisingly, this analysis also shows that from the three metatheoretical orientations that coexisted at the time, namely the social-interactionistic, the interindividual, and the individualistic, only the latter survived to the present time, despite the fact that the authors pertaining to this orientation never really dealt with conformity, let alone defined it. Today, as a consequence, conformity is generally understood as a clash between the individual and society, although it is not at all clear which theoretical positions and empirical data could support such a view. It seems rather obvious that conformity will sooner or later have to be based on a new theoretical perspective and redefined.

  1. Rescaled range analysis of streamflow records in the São Francisco River Basin, Brazil (United States)

    Araujo, Marcelo Vitor Oliveira; Celeste, Alcigeimes B.


    Hydrological time series are sometimes found to have a distinctive behavior known as long-term persistence, in which subsequent values depend on each other even under very large time scales. This implies multiyear consecutive droughts or floods. Typical models used to generate synthetic hydrological scenarios, widely used in the planning and management of water resources, fail to preserve this kind of persistence in the generated data and therefore may have a major impact on projects whose design lives span for long periods of time. This study deals with the evaluation of long-term persistence in streamflow records by means of the rescaled range analysis proposed by British engineer Harold E. Hurst, who first observed the phenomenon in the mid-twentieth century. In this paper, Hurst's procedure is enhanced by a strategy based on statistical hypothesis testing. The case study comprises the six main hydroelectric power plants located in the São Francisco River Basin, part of the Brazilian National Grid. Historical time series of inflows to the major reservoirs of the system are investigated and 5/6 sites show significant persistence, with values for the so-called Hurst exponent near or greater than 0.7, i.e., around 40% above the value 0.5 that represents a white noise process, suggesting that decision makers should take long-term persistence into consideration when conducting water resources planning and management studies in the region.

  2. The reception of Machiavelli and the neo-machiavellian in Political Science, with special reference to the Uruguayan case (1957-1985

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to analyze the reception of Machiavelli and the neo machiavellian (Pareto, Mosca, Michels, in the main Political Science paradigms, as well as in the teaching of this discipline at the University of the Republic, from 1957, when the first Political Science chair was created at the Law School, till 1985, when Uruguay returned to democracy, after a twelve-year period of civil-military dictatorship. For this purpose, first, this article will review the itinerary of international Political Science, presenting the different stages that this discipline has gone through. Then, it will make an approach to the reception of Machiavelli and the neo-machiavellian in three political scientists of great significance: Harold Laswell, Robert Dahl and Giovanni Sartori. Second, the paper will examine the reception of the works of the Florentine author and the elitist theorists in three Political Science chairs that were conducted during the indicated period by Alberto Ramón Real, Carlos Real de Azúa and Jacques Ginesta. Finally, there will be a reflection on the different emphases that were made in the teaching of Political Science at that time, particularly following the intervention of the University after the 1973 coup d’État.

  3. In memoriam: John Warren Aldrich, 1906-1995 (United States)

    Banks, Richard C.


    John Aldrich was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on 23 February 1906, and went to the Providence public schools. He developed a broad interest in natural history at an early age, being stimulated by his mother, a kindergarten teacher, who introduced him to nature books. His interest was strengthened by Harold L. Madison, Director of the Park Museum in Providence, an Associate ( = member) of the AOU. As a high school student, John taught nature study at the Rhode Island Boy Scout Camp in summers. John was President of his class at Classical High School, and manager of the school's football team in his senior year. Also in that year, 1923, John published his first paper, a note in Bird-Lore on the occurrence of the Mockingbird in Rhode Island. That paper is a literary gem, showing that his skill in writing developed as early as his knowledge of birds. His early interest in football continued as well; he was a devoted fan of the Washington Redskins in his later years.

  4. CEC-CED Joint Knowledge and Skills statement for all becoming teachers of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Joint Standards Committee of the National Council on Education of the Deaf and the Council for Exceptional Children. (United States)


    In 1992, the National Council on Education of the Deaf (CED) and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) began a collaborative process in which new standards were jointly developed and approved by a representation of members from all organizations engaged in the preparation of teachers and in the delivery of services to deaf and hard of hearing learners, including educational, professional/administrative and consumer organizations. A Joint Standards Committee was appointed, and in 1992 enunciated mutually acceptable standards for the preparation of teachers of students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Fundamental to the entire standards development process was respect for the continuum of educational options available for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. The intent of this committee was to provide standards which were credible for all university and college teacher preparation programs and which could serve as a foundation for the development and maintenance of strong and viable programs according to the specific stated philosophy and practice of each. Information regarding the new standards and University/College Program Evaluation can be obtained from: Dr. Harold Johnson, Program Evaluation Chair, Kent State University, Room 405 White Hall, Kent, Ohio 44242.

  5. The clinicide phenomenon: an exploration of medical murder. (United States)

    Kaplan, Robert


    The aim of this paper is to explore the phenomenon of clinicide. The study of medical killers is barely in its infancy. Clinicide is the unnatural death of multiple patients in the course of treatment by a doctor. Serial medical killing is a relatively new phenomenon. The role model is Dr Marcel Petiot, the worst serial killer in French history. More recently, Dr Harold Shipman was Britain's worst serial killer and in the United States and Zimbabwe, Dr Michael Swango killed 60 patients. A number of doctors have such high patient death rates that it cannot be ignored. At some level, these doctors have an awareness of what they are doing, countered by an overweening refusal to acknowledge the implications or desist from further treatment. Treatment killer offences usually occur on the basis of serial mental illness, but may include the contentious area of euthanasia killing. Doctors have frequently been accomplices in state repression, brutality and genocide in direct contravention to their sanctioned role to relieve suffering and save life. They have become mass murderers on an exponential scale, making any comparison with a doctor killing his own patients almost risible. Many clinicidal doctors have extreme narcissistic personalities, a grandiose view of their own capability and inability to accept that they could be criticized or need assistance from other doctors. Such doctors develop a God-complex, getting a vicarious thrill out of ending suffering and by determining when a person dies.

    Full Text Available This article studies three interpretations of Sonnet 130 by three American experimental poets. Rereading Bloom’s considerations on Shakespeare in The Anxiety of Influence and comparing them with Jacques Derrida’s Specters of Marx, this article shows that rather than thinking of Shakespeare as a cursing ghost, Harryette Mullen’s, Stephen Ratcliffe’s and Jen Bervin’s texts reveal Shakespeare as a ghost and a host. Their texts are attempts to live with Shakespeare in the present, thus prompting us to look back on the theory of the intertext.Cet article étudie trois réinterpretations du sonnet 130 de Shakespeare par trois poètes expérimentaux des Etats-Unis. Après avoir relu la théorie d’Harold Bloom telle qu’il l’applique à Shakespeare dans The Anxiety of Influence et l’avoir rapidement mise en contraste avec celle de Jacques Derrida dans Spectres de Marx, cet article montre que les textes de Harryette Mullen, Stephen Ratcliffe et Jen Bervin ne font pas de Shakespeare un fantôme de la malédiction. Ils tentent plutôt de vivre-avec Shakespeare dans le présent, nous amenant ainsi à reconsidérer la théorie de l’intertexte.

  8. The Saint and the Cynic: Resentment and Jewishness in Améry, Sloterdijk, and Wyschogrod

    Menachem Feuer


    Full Text Available The constellation of pain, resentment, the body, and time – as they exist in the wake of the Enlightenment and in the dawn of a new barbarism - is found throughout the work of Jean Améry and Peter Sloterdijk. Both thinkers were especially influenced by Nietzsche’s readings of resentment, his challenge to the Enlightenment, and his turn to the body as the basis of a new kind of thinking which starts with pain, dwells in irreversible time, and ends with the possibility of action and joy. While this new thinking is novel and appeals to all humankind, the most unexpected points of convergence between Améry and Sloterdijk can be found in their particular neo-Nietzschean articulations of Jewishness: using what Harold Bloom would call revision, they both propose a revision of Nietzsche’s reading of Judaism as resentment. Améry associates Jewishness with “revolt” while Sloterdijk associates what he calls “kynicism” (as opposed to cynicism with Jewishness.1 Intensely aware of the mortal blows that have been dealt to the Enlightenment, philosophy, and modernity as well as to the human body during the Holocaust, Améry and Sloterdijk both address – either directly or indirectly – the meaning of cynicism in relation to Jewishness, in particular, and the modern condition, in general.

  9. Die Literatur und Pessoa: Überlegungen zur Genese der Heteronympoetik

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gerhard Wild


    Full Text Available Der vorliegende Beitrag beschreibt vor dem Hintergrund von Harold Blooms Intertextualitätskonzept der "Einflussangst" die Entstehung der Heteronympoetik Pessoas als Konsequenz der Krise, in die am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts das neuzeitliche Originalitätspostulat gerät. Pessoa reflektiert diese Problematik in zwei seiner weniger bekannten Prosatexte, die den Heteronymen Barão de Teive und Alexander Search zugeschrieben sind. In dem wahrscheinlich bereits um 1910 konzipierten, gegen Ende der zwanziger Jahre fertiggestellten "Único manuscrito" des Barão de Teive, der sich als poetologische Essay erweist, resultiert aus der Diskussion des Originalitätsproblems der Selbstmord des Autors, der in paradoxer Weise Originalität durch den Bericht der Vernichtung seiner sämtlichen Schriften reklamiert. In dem Alexander Search 1907 zugewiesenen "Very Original Dinner" wird das Problem der Originalität im Diskurs über die Kochkunst vorgetragen. Konsequenz dieser Suche nach Innovation ist die physische Zerstörung lästiger Vorläufer im Akt des Kannibalismus. Beide Texte diskutieren auf einer metapoetischen Ebene die Genese der Heteronympoesie in beiden Texten zwischen den konkurrierenden Optionen der Resignation (Selbstmord und Recycling (Kannibalisierung.

  10. Cânone, tradição e responsabilidade do professor: uma abordagem pela perspectiva de Hannah Arendt

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marcello Peres Zanfra


    Full Text Available O propósito desse artigo é refletir sobre a noção de cânone literário, sobretudo a partir de considerações de Roberto Reis, Idelber Avelar e Harold Bloom pela perspectiva da pensadora alemã Hannah Arendt, considerando suas reflexões a respeito de como a tradição e o mundo público se relacionam com o sentido da educação e a utilização do cânone em sala de aula. Dentro dessa perspectiva, o cânone pode ser uma ferramenta de estudo do passado e da tradição, desde que não se torne algo que planifique a visão de mundo e anule a pluralidade de visões que são a marca essencial do mundo público arendtiano. A tradição como centro do processo educativo não significa sua reprodução acrítica, mas impedir que caia no esquecimento a fim de que os estudantes não se vejam entregues, unicamente, a suas próprias possibilidades e ferramentas. Nesse sentido, a responsabilidade do professor, por sua abordagem do texto, tem um papel central.

  11. Project-Based Learning to Promote Effective Learning in Biotechnology Courses

    Farahnaz Movahedzadeh


    Full Text Available With enrollment in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM shrinking, teachers are faced with the problem of appealing to a new generation of students without sacrificing educational quality. Evidence has shown that this problem can be reduced with the use of a number of pedagogical strategies of which project-based learning (PBL is one. PBL addresses the fundamental challenge of increasing students’ motivation, their mastery of course material, and finding applications for what they have learned to apply in various situations. This study demonstrates the benefits of redesigning a standard lab-based molecular biology course to create a more effective learning environment. Using PBL, students who enrolled in Bio-251 at Harold Washington College in Chicago were given the responsibility of cloning a bacterial gene from one species into a new host species. They were then tasked with the expression and purification of the resulting protein for future research purposes at University of Illinois-Chicago, a leading 4-year research institute. With use of the PBL method, students showed improvement in the areas of self-confidence, lab technical skills, and interest in STEM-related fields and, most of all, the students showed a high level of performance and satisfaction.

  12. Knowledge of ancient Hindu surgeons on Hirschsprung disease: evidence from Sushruta Samhita of circa 1200-600 BC. (United States)

    Raveenthiran, Venkatachalam


    Congenital megacolon is eponymously named after Harold Hirschsprung, who accurately described the clinical features in 1886. Recent research revealed that this condition is perhaps well known for centuries before him. This article is intended to examine if ancient Hindu surgeons knew about congenital megacolon. Sushruta Samhita is an ancient tome of Ayurvedic surgery compiled by Sushruta (circa 1200-600 bc). Passages of interest were identified by browsing the authentic English translation of the compendium. Accuracy of translation was verified by comparing to the original Sanskrit verses with the help of a Sanskrit scholar. A condition called Baddha Gudodaram, described in the Samhita, closely resembles Hirschsprung disease. There are indications that ancient Indians even deciphered the etiology as defective vayu alias vata (nerves). Although the ailment was considered incurable, a palliative operation has been discussed. Descriptive details of the operation match with that of sigmoid colostomy. Evidence from Sushruta Samhita indicates that Hindu surgeons of prehistoric India probably had considerable knowledge about Hirschsprung disease. Further research, corroborating other sources of evidence, is required to confirm this claim. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  13. Ten-year retrospective: OPEC and the world oil market

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gately, D.


    This paper reviews the main events in the world oil market since 1973 and some major explanations as to what happened and why (Section I). Then there is a discussion of some projections for the next two decades and of some implications of various theories about OPEC's decisionmaking process (Section II). Section III summarizes what we have learned about modeling OPEC and the world oil market. This includes: the dominant theoretical approach based on the wealth-maximization model of Harold Hotelling (1931); the simulation approach most common in the applied literature, which envisages target-capacity-utilization pricing by OPEC; and the difficult problem of modeling price behavior during disruptions. Finally, Section IV discusses some important unresolved issues, both theoretical and empirical. A variety of contributions to the literature are considered, but the discussion pays special attention to two important recent works. One is the book OPEC Behavior and World Oil Prices (1982) (EAPA 9:3899) edited by James Griffin and David Teece, an important collection of papers on OPEC and world oil, prepared for a 1981 conference at the University of Houston. The other is the 1980 to 1981 world oil study by the Energy Modeling Forum of Stanford Univesity, which involved ten prominent models of the world oil market. 31 references.

This is followed by hematopoietic stem cell (HSC transplantation (HSCT to rescue or reconstitute hematopoiesis damaged by the anticancer therapy. Autologous HSC grafts may contain cancer cells and purging could further improve treatment outcomes. Similarly, allogeneic HSCT may be improved by selectively purging alloreactive effector cells from the graft rather than wholesale immune cell depletion. Viral agents that selectively replicate in specific cell populations are being studied in experimental models of cancer and immunological diseases and have potential applications in the context of HSC graft engineering. This review describes preclinical studies involving oncolytic virus strains of adenovirus, herpes simplex virus type 1, myxoma virus, and reovirus as ex vivo purging agents for HSC grafts, as well as in vitro and in vivo experimental studies using oncolytic coxsackievirus, measles virus, parvovirus, vaccinia virus, and vesicular stomatitis virus to eradicate hematopoietic malignancies. Alternative ex vivo oncolytic virus strategies are also outlined that aim to reduce the risk of relapse following autologous HSCT and mitigate morbidity and mortality due to graft-versus-host disease in allogeneic HSCT.

  15. Radiation protection in medicine: ethical framework revisited. (United States)

    Malone, J F


    The ethical framework within which medicine operates has changed radically over the last two decades. This has been stimulated by events leading to controversy, such as the infant organ retention scandals; concerns about blood products; self regulation of medical practice in the wake of the Harold Shipman Enquiry in the UK; and many other events. It has become obvious following investigations and/or public enquiries that a gap has opened up between what is acceptable to the public on the one hand, and what appears reasonable to, or is at least accepted by, the professionals involved on the other. This paper reviews these issues and some conclusions of a workshop held to consider them. It places the developments in the context of the idea that the approach to problems and communication in a group of people/professionals such as doctors, radiologists, radiation protection specialists, or even the general public may be regarded as a 'culture'. Current practice of radiation protection in medicine is examined in the light of these considerations.

  16. Stories and Maps, Images and Archives: Multimethod Approach to the Political Ecology of Native Property Rights and Natural Resource Management in Sabah, Malaysia (United States)

    Doolittle, Amity A.


    The study of human-environmental relations is complex and by nature draws on theories and practices from multiple disciplines. There is no single research strategy or universal set of methods to which researchers must adhere. Particularly for scholars interested in a political ecology approach to understanding human-environmental relationships, very little has been written examining the details of “how to” design a project, develop appropriate methods, produce data, and, finally, integrate multiple forms of data into an analysis. A great deal of attention has been paid, appropriately, to the theoretical foundations of political ecology, and numerous scholarly articles and books have been published recently. But beyond Andrew Vayda’s “progressive contextualization” and Piers Blaikie and Harold Brookfield’s “chains of explanation,” remarkably little is written that provides a research model to follow, modify, and expand. Perhaps one of the reasons for this gap in scholarship is that, as expected in interdisciplinary research, researchers use a variety of methods that are suitable (and perhaps unique) to the questions they are asking. To start a conversation on the methods available for researchers interested in adopting a political ecology perspective to human-environmental interactions, I use my own research project as a case study. This research is by no means flawless or inclusive of all possible methods, but by using the details of this particular research process as a case study I hope to provide insights into field research that will be valuable for future scholarship.

  17. Political Ecology in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eman Mohammed ElSherief


    Full Text Available The roots of ecology prolong profoundly within earlier phases of history, when the naturalistic fabric was first evinced.  Bringing out his On the Origin of Species in 1859, Darwin not merely engendered a biological culmination but also heralded the revolutionary critical canon of naturalism that was virtually a stone thrown in the vast stagnant lake of traditional literature. Via the naturalistic lens, the whole bulk of man’s behavioral attributes are being expounded in terms of milieu and heredity. The mid-1990s witnessed the publication of The Environmental Imagination by Lawrence Buell in 1995, and The Ecocriticism Reader edited by Cheryll Gloffelty and Harold Fromm in 1996, which palpably underpinned ecocriticism as revolving around the inextricable liaison between literature and the physical environment. The political ecology term was coined to further scrutinize relations among people that pertain to nature. The present paper is an endeavor to pursue the ecological tenor of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s landmark novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude, and how it was admirably exploited to address precarious postcolonial issues. Keywords: Political ecology, Marquez, naturalism, ecocriticism, post-colonialism.

  18. Scientific attributes of a researcher and member of The Triological Society. (United States)

    Berke, Gerald S


    This presidential address discusses the comments from the first Mayo Clinic's Chair, Harold Lille, MD, regarding different contributions by members of The Triological Society in his 1939 presidential address. It then goes on to discuss scientific research attributes expected of members of the Society that were gleaned from a fusion of Dr. Berke's notions with what other famous researchers, inventors, and philosophers have said about aspects of research. The areas covered include research motivation, the process of research, the scientific method, imagination, intuition and luck, questioning in science, tenacity, ideas, and knowledge. In summary, the following are the expected attributes of a researcher and member of the Society. The individual should enjoy the creation of new knowledge and appreciate the mysteries of life and the joy of discoveries. He or she should be a staunch supporter of the scientific method, but should also understand that every researcher is a professional amateur, and that the process of research is often fraught with blind alleys and incorrect ideas and assumptions, and that ultimately hypotheses must be substantiated by experiments. A researcher must exhibit imagination and intuition augmented by tenacity and scientific questioning. Finally, he or she should recognize that chance favors the prepared mind, and always be on the lookout for novel ideas framed by a comprehension of existing knowledge, not just in one domain but across a broad horizon of disciplines.

  19. Monopoly and the rate of extraction of exhaustible resources: Note

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Lewis, T.R. (Univ. of Arizona, Tucson); Matthews, S.A.; Burness, H.S.


    Joseph Stiglitz has demonstrated (Am. Econ. Rev.; 66: 655-661(Sep 1976)) a set of familiar conditions under which a monopoly-owned nonreplenishable resource will tend to be exhausted at a slower rate than is socially optimal. This supports earlier views on the subject expressed by Harold Hotelling and Robert Solow. Stiglitz shows under the natural first-approximation assumptions of stationary, iso-elastic demand and zero extraction costs, that monopolistic and socially optimal (competitive) extraction rates are identical. If demand elasticity increases with time or constant unit production costs are positive but possibly decrease with time, he shows that competitive extraction rates exceed monopolistic rates for at least an initial period of time. In this note, realistic, alternative extensions to the iso-elastic, zero cost analysis which tend to bias monopolistic extraction rates in the opposite direction are presented, i.e., towards excessive resource use. The first modification allows for costs that do not vary with extraction rate. Occurring in the form of leasing fees, capital costs, and maintenance fees, these quasi-fixed costs are incurred only during periods of production and often constitute a substantial portion of operating expenses. The second extension involves demand elasticities varying with consumption instead of time. Particularly considered is a stationary demandschedule with elasticity increasing in consumption. In general, competitive ownership of the resource will also result in socially non-optimal production when fixed operation costs exist. (MCW)

  2. Bioelectromagnetic and subtle energy medicine: the interface between mind and matter. (United States)

    Rosch, Paul J


    The concept of a "life energy" can be found in many cultures in the present time, as well as in past eras reaching back to the ancients. Variously called qi (chi), ki, the "four humors,"prana, "archaeus,"cosmic aether,"universal fluid,"animal magnetism," and "odic force," among other names, this purported biofield is beginning to yield its properties and interactions to the scientific method. Subtle energy is the term used in this chapter, which traces the recent history of subtle energy studies from Harold Saxton Burr and Björn Nordenström to Jim Oschman and Jacques Benveniste. This work takes signaling in living systems from the chemical/molecular to the physical/atomic level of communication. Effects on heart rate variability, stress response, inflammation, and the vagus nerve have been demonstrated and raise the question--Can the power of subtle energies be harnessed for health enhancement? It is fully accepted that good health depends on good communication both within the organism and between the organism and its environment. Sophisticated imaging procedures brought to bear on telomere, stem cell, and genetic research are confirming the ability of meditation and some other traditional practices to promote optimal health through stress reduction.

    Full Text Available A produção nacional de coco (Cocos nucifera destinada para o consumo de água in natura e industrializada no ano de 2014 foi de aproximadamente 1,5 bilhão de frutos. Toneladas de cascas foram, em sua maioria, descartadas nos lixões e aterros sanitários das cidades, desprezando, dessa forma, uma matéria prima potencial de alta aplicabilidade e baixo custo. O presente trabalho tem o objetivo de apurar a viabilidade financeira a partir do levantamento dos custos de instalação de uma unidade de beneficiamento de cascas de coco verde para produção de pó e fibras brutas. A unidade será implantada no município de São Luís (MA. Os quesitos técnicos utilizados como referência foram desenvolvidos e testados pela Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária [Embrapa] Agroindústria Tropical. Para os cálculos de viabilidade foram utilizados, a partir do fluxo de caixa, os critérios financeiros valor presente líquido [VPL], payback descontado e taxa interna de retorno [TIR], além de análise de sensibilidade de cenários. O maior volume de capital destinou-se às instalações físicas da unidade, consumindo R$ 550.415,00, enquanto as máquinas e equipamentos tiveram dispêndios de R$ 284.650,00. O projeto é financeiramente atrativo, gerando VPL de R$ 361.458,00 e TIR de 16%, frente a uma taxa mínima de atratividade de 7,13%, ao passo que os recursos investidos serão retornados no sexto ano. O projeto é sensível às variações de preço dos produtos vendidos. = The national coconut (Cocos nucifera production for natural and industrialized water, in 2014, was approximately 1.5 billion fruits.

    Full Text Available Much time and resources have been invested in understanding plankton dynamics in Guanabara Bay (Brazil, but no attention has been devoted to the protozooplankton. To fulfill this lacuna, abundance and composition of protozooplankton were investigated from January to December - 2000 in fortnightly surface water samplings at two distinct water quality sites (Urca - closer to the bay entrance, more saline and cleaner waters; Ramos - inner reaches, hypereutrophic waters. The density at Urca (10³ - 10(5 cell.l-1 was one to three orders of magnitude lower than at Ramos (10(4 - 10(5 cell.l-1. A seasonal trend for nanoplankton and protozooplankton was more evident at Urca, but both sites had lower densities during the colder period. Small heterotrophic dinoflagellates (20-30 mm were dominant in over 50% of the samples. The protozooplankton abundance and composition reflected the distinct trophic conditions states found at the bay. During the wet-warm season, non-oligotrich ciliates were representative of Ramos site with Gymnodiniaceae dinoflagellates, while tintinnids and heterotrophic dinoflagellates were predominantly found at Urca mainly during the dry-cold season. This first descriptive study towards the understanding of the intricate relationships among the microbial food web components reveals that protozooplankton can be a good indicator of water quality conditions at the bay.Muito tem sido investido para entender a dinâmica do plâncton da Baía de Guanabara (Brasil, estuário tropical com sérios problemas ambientais, mas pouco se sabe sobre o protozooplâncton.

This is a qualitative research proposal of plans, which used the bibliographical research and participant observation followed by meetings with the manager and employees of ONGs as major research techniques. It was felt that this organization depends almost entirely on funds raised from external sources, however, has not effectively planned actions fundraising. In turn, the empirical study showed that there is possibility to expand the sources and possibilities of raising funds for ONGs in this region Guarapuava provided that it is good, structured design. Thus, it was noted the relevance of interdisciplinary work, since the area of advice allows a coordinated effort of several disciplines around a common goal, that this study sets up a proposition in the area of Social Responsibility.

A amostra foi composta por 102 homens e 99 mulheres de 14 a 25 anos de idade que já haviam iniciado suas vidas sexuais. Usou-se o modelo hierárquico de regressão logística. As variáveis não ter companheiro sexual no momento da entrevista, sexo do entrevistado, idade no momento da entrevista, priorizar morar só e número de gestações compuseram o modelo final. Dar muita importância a morar só quadruplica a chance de ocorrer um aborto. Jovens mais velhos foram menos propensos a se deparar com um aborto, dado que a chance de se optar pelo aborto se reduz 17% para cada incremento de um ano na idade dos jovens. Isso é indicativo de que as gestações ocorreram de forma inesperada, intempestiva, como é praxe nas condutas adolescentes, sendo as maiores candidatas a terminarem em aborto provocado.

Como inovação neste segmento têm despontado os cosméticos em filme. A partir de uma fórmula inicial, contendo como formador de película um polissacarídeo constituído de maltotriose e como agente gelificante sodium polyacrylate, foram obtidos géis viscosos que foram espalhados em placas de vidro, de maneira a se obter filmes de 1 mm de espessura. Após secagem à temperatura ambiente, os mesmos foram recortados (1 cm2 e acondicionados. Várias alterações foram realizadas a fim de se obter um filme flexível, com rigidez adequada, ausência de rachaduras e de bolhas, fácil dissolução em água e sensorial agradável. As formulações foram submetidas a diferentes temperaturas para avaliação preliminar da estabilidade. Foram desenvolvidos dois produtos, um contendo extratos hidroglicólicos de Aloe Vera e de Rosa Branca, auxiliares no tratamento da acne, e outro contendo extratos hidroglicólicos de Camomila e de Pera, auxiliares no combate a olheiras. Pequenos, leves e finos, os cosméticos em filme representam inovação que pode ocupar o lugar de produtos tradicionais, por proporcionarem maior praticidade e facilidade de uso e de transporte, mantendo a eficácia e a segurança necessárias a um cosmético.The cosmetics industry has invested heavily in the research and development of new products, to satisfy consumer demands.

Trata-se de ensaio crítico baseado em revisão da literatura e em dados oficiais. Em relação ao volume de recursos financeiros e ao número de alunos atendidos, observou-se que, em 2003, o Programa executou um total de 954,2 milhões de reais para atender 37,3 milhões de alunos, ao passo que em 2010, o total de recursos passou a ser de 3 bilhões de reais para um total de 45,6 milhões de alunos atendidos. Outros avanços importantes foram os estímulos para a ampliação e o fortalecimento do papel dos Conselhos de Alimentação Escolar e as estratégias normativas para as ações do nutricionista como Responsável Técnico. A Lei nº 11.947/2009 fez o PNAE avançar ainda mais, estendendo o programa para toda a rede pública de educação básica e de jovens e adultos, e recomendando que 30% dos repasses do FNDE sejam investidos na aquisição de produtos da agricultura familiar. São evidentes os avanços nos critérios técnicos e operacionais visando maior flexibilidade, eficiência e eficácia na gestão do PNAE. Espera-se que tais avanços possam se traduzir em melhoria das condições de alimentação e nutrição dos escolares.The scope of this paper is to study the report of the manager of the Brazilian School Nutrition Program (PNAE, with special emphasis on the period from 2003 to 2010.

    Thiago de Melo Teixeira da Costa


    Full Text Available Os Fundos de Pensão têm se tornado cada vez mais representativos no cenário mundial. A sustentabilidade dessas instituições exige um eficiente processo de gerenciamento de suas carteiras de investimento. Ao mesmo tempo, as negociações com contratos futuros agropecuários vêm se consolidando no Brasil e surgem como uma alternativa para investidores que queiram diversificar suas carteiras. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a viabilidade da utilização de derivativos agropecuários como forma de minimização de riscos em carteiras de investimentos de Fundos de Pensão no Brasil, dentro dos limites legais aos quais essas entidades estão sujeitas, tomando como referência o perfil médio dessas instituições no país com relação à alocação de seus investimentos. Para isso, avaliou-se o desempenho de carteiras sem e com 1% de seus investimentos em derivativos agropecuários. As análises de risco foram feitas através do modelo Value-at-risk (VaR, utilizando modelos de variância condicional para a extração da série diária de volatilidades. Os retornos foram ponderados pelo risco, através do Índice de Sharpe Adaptado (ISA. Os resultados mostraram que, dentro dos parâmetros estabelecidos para cada modalidade de investimento, a introdução de contratos futuros agropecuários foi benéfica, reduzindo o risco mais que proporcionalmente ao retorno. O trabalho torna-se mais significativo à medida que se analisam os montantes financeiros envolvidos. Considerando, por exemplo, que os Fundos de Pensão invistam, de forma geral, 1% de seus ativos, seriam injetados, no mercado futuro de commodities agropecuárias, mais de R$ 2 bilhões, valor que representa, dentro da movimentação financeira de 2004, aproximadamente 10% de todos os recursos investidos.Pension Funds have become increasingly representative internationally and nationally.

    Full Text Available A experiência aqui relatada nasce de crises e tensões presentes no cotidiano de trabalho de um serviço de atenção primária à saúde. Surge, também, do esforço em transformar esse conflito em 'cuidado' dirigido ao conjunto da equipe. Para tanto, duas vivências que se estruturam para responder a tais desafios conformaram um projeto mais amplo de educação permanente em saúde, o "Cuidando do cuidador". Essa iniciativa buscou mobilizar e fazer circular valores e sentimentos que, usualmente, são pouco considerados em processos de educação no trabalho. Ao dar visibilidade a estas dimensões intersubjetivas, foi possível tornar presentes questões essenciais para pensar o papel de cuidador de que deve estar investido o profissional de saúde. Com o uso de recursos sociodramáticos em diferentes espaços do projeto, viabilizou-se, ainda, um movimento de sensibilização que se inicia no profissional e em sua identidade como pessoa, passa pelo reconhecimento do outro (colega de trabalho e paciente e chega a um coletivo mais amplo, o institucional. O desenvolvimento do projeto ajudou a entender que a humanização de nossos serviços exige, igualmente, reconhecer que nós, cuidadores, também somos frágeis e humanos.The experience narrated here had its origin in the crises and tensions present in the everyday work of a basic health care unit. It was also the result of an effort to change conflict into "care" for the entire team. For this purpose, two practices that were structured to respond to these challenges gave origin to a wider project in permanent health education, called "Caring for the Carer". This initiative attempted to encourage and propagate values and feelings that are normally ignored in processes of education at work. By giving visibility to these inter-subjective dimensions, it was possible to bring to light some essential issues related to the role of carer that should be assumed by the health professional.

    Piera Aulagnier

    Full Text Available Partindo do pressuposto de que toda história significante se constrói a partir do nascimento de um corpo – corpo este que deverá ser investido libidinalmente – a autora discute os movimentos constitutivos da psique e sua relação com o corpo. A ênfase é dada ao postulado do auto-engendramento que diz que enquanto o espaço psíquico e o espaço somático estão indissociáveis, a psique imputará à atividade das zonas sensoriais o poder de engendrar suas experiências. A autora parte daquilo que o corpo torna visível nos registros da emoção e do sofrimento somático, para compreender seu papel na construção do “corpo latente”, que é o seu duplo psíquico. A “aquisição” do corpo pelo Eu (Je é seguida passo a passo no texto. A “historização” da vida somática só pode ser feita por um biógrafo: o Eu. Este Eu (Je deve, entretanto, ser capaz de reconhecer como seus os eventos que marcaram significativamente sua vida. Para que o biógrafo e biografia existam é necessário que psique e corpo passem a se relacionar como pólos separados, marcando assim a passagem do corpo sensorial ao corpo relacional. O Eu (Je só pode ocupar um corpo que possua uma história. A primeira versão desta história é elaborada pela psique que acolhe este corpo. Nesta história estará contido um “Eu (Je antecipado”, referente à imagem do corpo da criança que a mãe antecipa, permitindo assim que a criança seja inserida num sistema de parentesco. Contudo, a situação pode complicar-se quando a imagem criada pela mãe não corresponde ao corpo com o qual a criança vem ao mundo. Os conflitos insuportáveis e os lutos irrealizáveis gerados por essa situação são ampla e longamente debatidos: a psicose, o autismo, as manifestações psicossomáticas, as somatizações polimorfas. No final do texto são analisadas, de forma pormenorizada, as conseqüências da não ancoragem do representante psíquico que a mãe traz do corpo do

    Full Text Available A Halitose é um sintoma constrangedor com significativo impacto social. Ela afeta milhões de pessoas ao redor do mundo e muitos recursos são investidos em produtos para a melhora do hálito, sem sucesso. O estudo da halitose com uma abordagem científica se justifica, uma vez que a halitose é causa de restrição social, diminui a qualidade de vida e pode ser indicativo da presença de doenças mais graves. OBJETIVO: Elaborar um protocolo de avaliação da halitose com o objetivo de minimizar custos, evitar exames desnecessários e orientar o diagnóstico causal. MÉTODO: O protocolo foi elaborado baseado na literatura e na experiência pessoal dos autores, adotando uma anamnese baseada em evidências. RESULTADO: Existem muitas causas da halitose e a maioria delas está relacionada com a cavidade oral, outras estão relacionadas com doenças otorrinolaringológicas e respiratórias. Doenças gastrointestinais, alterações das funções renais e hepáticas e outras síndromes metabólicas são causas menos freqüentes, porém importantes de halitose. CONCLUSÃO: Existem custos importantes envolvidos no diagnóstico e tratamento da halitose, incluindo consultas ambulatoriais, avaliação de especialistas e exames complementares. Estes custos poderiam ser minimizados adotando uma anamnese baseada em evidências e um organograma para uma investigação clínica racional.Halitosis is an embarrassing symptom with a significant social impact. Halitosis affects millions of people worldwide and many resources are spent annually in products to improve halitus, unsuccessfully.
