  8. 'Muerte de Narciso', poema-umbral del orbe lezamiano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Daniela Evangelina Chazarreta

    2004-11-01

    Full Text Available Este trabajo contempla la presencia de los subtextos de los Narcisos de Valéry y Ovidio, así como las poéticas de Garcilaso y Góngora en "Muerte de Narciso" de José Lezama Lima. En este primer poema publicado Lezama diseña su linaje colocando a Garcilaso como la figura emblemática del poeta y expone sus diferencias con respecto a Valéry y Góngora. A pesar de la distancia entre este texto y la noción de "era imaginaria" que Lezama construye posteriormente, nuestra lectura halla vínculos que permiten trazar en "Muerte de Narciso" una era imaginaria que traza el inicio de la poética lezamiana.

  9. 'Muerte de Narciso', poema-umbral del orbe lezamiano

    2005-09-01

    Full Text Available This article analises the Valéry's and Ovid's Narcissus presence and the Garcilaso's and Góngora's poetics in José Lezama Lima's "Muerte de Narciso". In his first published poem, Lezama appoints his lineage where Garcilaso is the emblematic figure of a poet and also mentions his differences about Valéry and Góngora. We read also a relation between this poem and the notion of "era imaginaria", that Lezama builds during the sixties, this allows us to design this text as the beginning of Lezama Lima's poetic.

    2001-01-01

    El presente articulo se centra en el estudio de las versiones manuscritas del poema "Narciso", incluido por Federico García Lorca dentro de la serie "Tres retratos con sombra" como poema-sombra de "Debussy" (cfr. Canciones). Las variantes textuales ayudan a desentrañar el sentido de este complejo poema cuya dificultad interpretativa viene dada, en parte, por la supresión de uno de sus versos clave en la versión definitiva: "comprendí que era Narciso".

  15. Narciso e seu reino de sombra em Cantares, de Hilda Hilst

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Souza, Enivalda Nunes Freitas e

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Os poemas de Cantares, de Hilda Hilst, convidam ao desvelamento do mito do amor, empreitada que procuro enriquecer, neste artigo, recorrendo à matriz ovidiana do mito de Narciso e seus tantos mitemas, como a busca do conhecimento, a questão da sombra e do duplo e a intrigante relação entre amor e ódio, amor e morte. Como afirma Durand, os mitos são variações de arquétipos, o que provoca a aproximação e o entrelaçamento dos conteúdos míticos. De todos os mitos sobre os desencontros amorosos e a consequente solidão humana, poucos têm a beleza e a força psíquica desencadeada pelo mito de Narciso elaborado por Ovídio. Além do mito de Narciso, este artigo resgata a genealogia de Eros e os andróginos desafortunados, relatados por Platão, e a história de Salomão e Sulamita elaborada nos Cânticos bíblicos. O aporte teórico envolve Gilbert Durand, Jung, Freud e Kristeva

  16. Leopold Zunz and the Meanings of Wissenschaft.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bitzan, Amos

    2017-01-01

    When Jewish historians narrate the history of their field, they often point to Leopold Zunz (1794-1886) as its founder. My article challenges the notion that Zunz's early understanding of Wissenschaft was primarily historical. Reconstructing the meaning of Wissenschaft for Zunz in its context, I argue that it was more philosophical than historical and closely linked to an ideal of character formation. Zunz's view of Wissenschaft reveals the ways in which German idealist philosophy, neo-Humanist manifestos, and a Romantic religious reform agenda could produce a scientific interest in the human past that seems at odds with central tenets of historicism.

    2013-01-01

    The successful marriage policy of margrave Leopold III increased the importance of the House of Babenberg in late medieval Austria (12th century). Historical documentation is inconclusive in providing evidence whether or not his eldest son Adalbert derived from an earlier relationship or from the marriage with King Henry IV's daughter Agnes of Waiblingen, with whom Leopold is considered to have had 17 children. As a matter of fact Adalbert was ignored in the line of succession in favor of a younger brother, Leopold IV, which has led to long term historical discussions. Human remains attributed to these individuals were subjected to DNA analysis. Autosomal, Y-chromosomal and mitochondrial DNA analyses brought successful results, which suggested that Leopold III, Agnes and Adalbert were related in parent–son constellation, in contrast to historical considerations. A possible mix-up of Adalbert's remains with those of his younger brother Ernst could not be confirmed by DNA analysis. PMID:23142176

  12. Una lectura del mito de Narciso: tragedia y fotografía

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Julián David Romero Torres

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Este texto indaga por la relación posible entre la fotografía y el mito de Narciso. Para este asunto se presenta, en primera instancia, la narrativa de la leyenda de “Narciso y Eco”, escrita por Ovidio, al igual que una breve referencia a otras escrituras clásicas de esta. Así, se construye un diálogo entre el mito y la naturaleza de la fotografía, enfatizando en la práctica fotográfica familiar, en un análisis de los puntos de articulación y quiebre. La correspondencia entre el espejo y la fotografía es uno de esos lugares de disertación en donde germina la discusión, como también el engranaje de pares entre identidad-alteridad, sujeto-objeto y apariencia-realidad. Se finaliza con la apuesta del psicoanálisis, en tanto despliega una visión del narcisismo, que como componente medular de la actual disertación conecta al sujeto que se autoerotiza con el empalme del “yo fotográfico”, nueva categoría que se funda en este texto y amerita posteriores desarrollos.

    This paper provides a psychoanalytic interpretation of an element in the Irma dream that Freud had ignored in his own interpretation. The allusion to Leopold von Auenbrugger, the originator of percussion as a method of clinical investigation, which appears in the manifest dream reflects Freud's hopes and fears about how his Interpretation of Dreams and the new human science established there would be received by his medical colleagues.

  5. Unlawful enterprise. Il filibustering di Narciso López: people-to-people diplomacy tra schiavismo ed annessionismo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alessandro Badella

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available Narciso López’s clandestine expeditions to Cuba represented one of the first people-to-people political and economic contacts between Cuba and the United States. The denial of federal support for these illegal actions against Spanish colonial rule created a vast pro-annexation movement in New York such as in New Orleans and López’s filibustering activities embodied the very private answer to the failure of state diplomacy in acquiring Cuba. López’s epic created a strong Cuban-American “joint venture” in order to protect Creole interests in preserving the slave labor system in Cuba, while many prominent American businessmen and entrepreneurs looked to Cuba as a new state of the Union so as to expand their commercial interests, enlarge the representation of the slave states in US Senate, make a fortune with “Cuban bonds” or liberate the island from the European colonial rule.

  6. Nittrouer Receives 2013 Luna B. Leopold Young Scientist Award: Response

    2014-09-01

    I am grateful for receiving the Luna B. Leopold Award from the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes (EPSP) focus group at AGU. I am thankful to the mentors and colleagues who played important roles in shaping my science over the past 10 years. Significant credit goes to three people in particular: David Mohrig, Gary Parker, and Mead Allison. These gentlemen patiently developed and honed my skills for observing, modeling, and theorizing about the physical processes that produce fluvial-deltaic morphology and stratigraphy. It was an incredible opportunity to have worked with such a diverse set of thinkers, who regularly pushed me to consider and pursue new ideas, preventing too much comfort with the scientific status quo. Their mentoring fostered an independent and creative focus that produced the science for which this award has been generously given.

  9. Polish Decadence: Leopold Staff's Igrzysko in the European Context

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Julia Przybos

    2012-03-01

    expression. It is my hypothesis that taken out of its secular context, religious revisionism of the kind practiced by French decadents may be seen as shocking transgression in a fiercely catholic country like Poland. In the country that lost its independence in 1794 and was ever since seeking to regain it, Catholic Church was perceived as an essential ally in the struggle against main occupying powers: Orthodox Russia, and Protestant Prussia. In the course of the 19th century Catholicism and patriotism had been effectively fused in Polish national conscience. In this charged political context a Polish author revisiting Church dogma or tradition was at risk of being perceived not only as a religious outcast but also as a traitor to the cause of Polish independence. To test my hypothesis I propose to examine Igrzysko (Game, a forgotten play by Leopold Staff. Admired today chiefly as a poet, the young Staff wrote Igrzysko in Poland after a long sojourn in Paris where he had lived among the international crowd of fin de siècle writers and artists. The play was first produced in Lemberg in 1909 and after a few performances vanished forever from Polish theatrical repertoire. Leopold Staff's play is set in ancient Rome and depicts tribulations of an actor who, while impersonating a Christian awaiting crucifixion, converts to Christianity. In his play, Staff revives the legend of Saint Genesius, an actor in Arles who died a martyr's death in 286 under Diocletian. In Spain, Saint Genesius's legend inspired Lope de Vega who wrote Acting is Believing (Lo fingido verdadero, 1607. In France, it was the source for Jean Rotrou's Saint Genest (1646. All told, the legend of Genesius is a popular theme for artists who wish to explore the distinction between art and life. An important addition to this old tradition, Staff's play contains, however, a decadent and potentially scandalous twist. Unlike in Acting is Believing and Saint Genest, the protagonist's conversion is very short

  12. Unlawful enterprise. Il filibustering di Narciso López: people-to-people diplomacy tra schiavismo ed annessionismo

    OpenAIRE

    2013-01-01

    Narciso López’s clandestine expeditions to Cuba represented one of the first people-to-people political and economic contacts between Cuba and the United States. The denial of federal support for these illegal actions against Spanish colonial rule created a vast pro-annexation movement in New York such as in New Orleans and López’s filibustering activities embodied the very private answer to the failure of state diplomacy in acquiring Cuba. López’s epic created a strong Cuban-American “joint ...

    Leopold Mozart (1719-1787), father of Wolfgang Amadé, had profound medical knowledge and was a passionate medical dilettante. As long as the young Mozart lived with his father and travelled on his concert tours with him, Leopold cared for his son in medical matters. Doctors were only consulted occasionally. In the extensive correspondence of Mozart's father drugs and treatments used for Wolfgang Amadé are reported in detail. This represents a reliable description of the pharmacological therapies of the late 18th century. The mentioned drugs are, as far as possible, viewed from todays medical perspective.

Con ellos, se ahonda en la organización del discurso en la «Loa» que precede al auto; en la construcción de los personajes, en el contenido y la intencionalidad. Se sugiere que en ella se le ofrece al espectador la unidad de Dios y de dioses, y la de los hombres entre sí. Así, la unidad humana nueva que en la «Loa» exalta al Corpus Christi revela la existencia de un criollismo primigenio original, una suerte de «protocriollismo» surgido del Encuentro entre América, Europa y España.

  19. Aldo Leopold's land health from a resilience point of view: self-renewal capacity of social-ecological systems.

    Berkes, Fikret; Doubleday, Nancy C; Cumming, Graeme S

    2012-09-01

    Health approaches to ecology have a strong basis in Aldo Leopold's thinking, and contemporary ecohealth in turn has a strong philosophical basis in Leopold. To commemorate the 125th anniversary of Leopold's birth (1887-1948), we revisit his ideas, specifically the notions of stewardship (land ethic), productive use of ecosystems (land), and ecosystem renewal. We focus on Leopold's perspective on the self-renewal capacity of the land, as understood in terms of integrity and land health, from the contemporary perspective of resilience theory and ecological theory more generally. Using a broad range of literature, we explore insights and implications of Leopold's work for today's human-environment relationships (integrated social-ecological systems), concerns for biodiversity, the development of agency with respect to stewardship, and key challenges of his time and of ours. Leopold's seminal concept of land health can be seen as a triangulation of productive use, self-renewal, and stewardship, and it can be reinterpreted through the resilience lens as the health of social-ecological systems. In contemporary language, this involves the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem services, and the ability to exercise agency both for conservation and for environmental justice.

    2009-09-01

    Leopold Casper (1859-1959) was one of the founders of the German Urological Society (DGfU) in 1906. He introduced functional kidney testing and a special cystoscope for ureteral catheterization. In 1913 he was president of the 4th congress held in the German capital Berlin. His textbook on genito-urinary diseases was translated by Charles W. Bonney in 1910 and proved the high quality of his scientific work. As a Jew he was forced to leave Nazi Germany later on in 1933 and from 1941 onwards he lived in New York. The anniversary of his 150th birthday should be remembered with special focus on the exodus of Jewish German scientists during the Nazi period.

  1. Leopold 2.0: Training for a New Kind of Science Leadership

    2011-12-01

    To meet the environment and resource challenges of the coming decade, a new kind of scientific leadership is needed - one that is defined by the ability to innovate and lead transformational change; create strategic visions and implement them; catalyze and create bridges among multiple audiences and stakeholder groups; and motivate change in patterns of behavior, processes, and key decision systems. The Leopold Leadership Program has, since 1999, been training mid-career academic leaders in both communication skills and other strategies to link and translate their knowledge to decision making. As a result of the program's recent evaluation and planning activities, and drawing on current social science research, the program has identified storytelling, message-building, interviewing, and dialogue as critical science communication skills for the future. This presentation will provide examples of these skills, and illustrate ways in which they are essential to the work of collaboration, innovation, and action at the heart of "scientific leadership 2.0."

  2. When the King Becomes your Personal Enemy: W. T. Stead, King Leopold II, and the Congo Free State

    2013-04-01

    mso-fareast-language:JA;} This paper will highlight an unknown but important episode in the life of the journalist W. T. Stead, which, intriguingly, remained unmentioned in Belgian, British, and colonial historiography. It concerns a face-to-face meeting between Stead and Leopold II, King of the Belgians, which certainly did not leave Stead the ‘friend of all Kings’, as the posthumous article published by the 'Daily Mirror' contended. Based on Stead’s own Character Sketches in the 'Review of Reviews', the paper will show how Stead’s perceptions of the scandalous government of the Congo Free State result to a large extent from his own meeting (probably towards the end of 1884 with King Leopold II, and the King’s refusal to cooperate with Britain in an improvised rescue of General Gordon in Sudan.

    Kröger, Björn

    2011-12-01

    A manuscript of a lecture by the Prussian geologist Leopold von Buch given at the Berlin Society of the Friends of the Humanity was discovered at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin. The text is a raw version of a passionate plea for the formation of natural history collections as science places, with a partly biting humor. Based on until now unknown anecdotes about naturalists like Kaspar Maria Graf Sternberg (1761-1838) and Friedrich Wilhelm Hoeninghaus (1771-1854) Leopold von Buch argues with von Sternberg for the scientific value of natural history collections. The repeating references to the works of Goethe and an extensive addendum of various Dante translations into German are striking. The lecture manuscript complements our knowledge about the thinking of this important geologist, and provides new insights into the science policy of his time.

Female body is the language of women that can be poured through the writing of literary works. Helene Cixous brought the spirit of "writing the body" to motivate women authors to express himself through written discourse, which so far has been dominated by men. Cixous spirit is also promoted by Dinar Rahayu appear in the novel Ode untuk Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch. Dinar Rahayu voicing complexity of urban women's voices in this novel through several migration symbolic of the power of the female body. Migration is enriched by the presence of symbolic power in a sound body of Greek and Scandinavian mythology and Leopold voices in his work Venus in Furs. Through in-depth reading on the symbolic migration brought to the Ode untuk Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch through the voices of the characters and the particularities of naration techniques can be seen that this novel (as well as other sexist novels is not merely a commodity that exploit sexuality pornography but rather an attempt to author urban female voices will be the "body power". This study uses content analysis method that begins with the reading of literature, heuristic and hermeneutic, and take advantage of intertextuality approach.

  6. Erich Fromm's productivity: creativity as exemplified by Joyce's blooming of Leopold and Molly.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harrell, Valentina

    2005-01-01

    According to Erich Fromm, the productive character expresses what he called the life force in ways that are, by nature, artistic in quality. His valuing of the vital and the artistic, fueled by this life force in our potential to be human, serves as the cornerstone of his model of psychoanalysis. Gilbert Rose, author of Necessary Illusion: Art as "Witness", also has identified the parallel between analytic and artistic processes, building on the assumption that the therapeutic alliance and the aesthetic alliance are one and the same. In elaborating this assumption and extending the parallel between Rose and Fromm, I draw the conclusion that the qualities of relationships have an impact on one's ability to express oneself creatively, to live an artistic life--that is, to live productively. Psychoanalysis is, in practice, a process that is artistic, creative, and re-creative in nature. To the degree that authentic expression of emotionally charged implicit knowledge of the ineffable (the emotional life that resides deep in the bodymind) results in transformation and healing, the process is artistic in nature. This process is exemplified by examining the life and literary creations of James Joyce, especially Joyce's characters of Molly and Leopold Bloom in Ulysses.

    Full Text Available Throughout history, the science of wildlife biology and the profession of wildlife management have been dominated by men. In the early part of the 20th century there were few women wildlife biologists and they were typically junior collaborators or assistants. We quantified the evolving roles women have in The Wildlife Society (TWS by documenting their contributions to the Journal of Wildlife Management (JWM, the Wildlife Society Bulletin (WSB, and Wildlife Monographs (WM from the origin of TWS (the international professional society for wildlife biologists in 1937 through 2006. Data were collected from peer-reviewed publications, participation in TWS (i.e., membership, meeting attendees, committee members, and officers, journal editors, awards, and honorary membership. While women played a minor role in TWS in 1937, their contributions have steadily increased through the years. However, publications by women have not represented their membership in TWS. Only 18% of 11,363 TWS journal articles from 1937-2006 have female contributors. In 1937, 1 of 12 JWM articles had a female author. By 2006 that contribution increased to 45%. It was not until the early 1980s that contributions by females accelerated. In 1944 2% of TWS members were women; by 2006 22% were women. Out of 488 TWS awards since 1937, 5% have been presented to women. One female was president of the society, but none has served as editor-in-chief. Three women have received an honorary membership, and 2 of the 54 recipients of the Aldo Leopold Award, the most prestigious award given by TWS, have been women. Because 22% of TWS memberships were women in 2006 they need to be encouraged to accept leadership roles in TWS. With changing demographics and 50-75% of natural resource professionals retiring by 2015, women will have important new opportunities to shape the direction and progress of wildlife management.

    Full Text Available Salt steppes and marshes represent the most valuable ecosystems in the world, providing numerous ecosystem services that are extremely vulnerable to anthropogenic influences. These types of habitat in the territory of Serbia are most dominant in Banat and a significant portion of them is under protection or in the process of becoming protected. The section surrounding the protected areas of Slano Kopovo Special Nature Reserve, Rusanda Nature Park and Okanj Bara Special Nature Reserve with the non-building area of Novi Bečej, Kumane, Melenci, Elemir and Taraš cadastral municipalities, has been chosen for the analysis. The aim of this paper was to assess the influence of specific anthropogenic factors on the elements of an ecological network using the analytical method that can generate the required results in a manner suitable for presentation to various stakeholders. To achieve this aim, the Leopold matrix model, used for assessing anthropogenic influence on the environment, has been chosen. The specificity of this issue of protecting and preserving elements of an ecological network resulted in the need to isolate and evaluate the factors affecting the preservation of habitats and functionality of ecosystems, unlike the concept of Leopold matrix, which treats all factors as equally important in the process of evaluation. Evaluation results indicate significant effects of historical, perennial manner of using the area and other resources in the non-building area.

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available Background and Objective: Significant increase in population and as a result, the production of excessive waste has recently made attention to municipal solid waste management a necessary issue. The objective of this study was to use matrix-based EIA process in order to determine best waste management option in Birjand City and to suggest appropriate solutions to managers and planners of this city. Materials and Methods: Assessing the environmental impacts of waste management options was done using Iranian Leopold Matrix. Through this method, the environmental impacts of waste management options were determined in the Birjand City. The options were Open dumping, Recycling, Composting, and Sanitary damping. Results: The results indicated that Open dumping with a final score of -3.06 had the highest environmental impact and was introduced as the fourth preference. In addition, composting with final score of -2.34 has the lowest environmental impact compared with other options. Conclusion: About 76.95% of the composition of municipal solid waste of Birjand City is household waste; therefore, putrescible organic materials are the predominant waste. Thus, according to the results of the Iranian Leopold matrix method, composting option was introduced as the first priority and the most logical option for waste management in the Birjand City.

    2000-01-01

    Educated as a veterinarian at Cureghem, Leopold Frateur started his scientific career in 1899 as a professor at the Faculty of Sciences of the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium, in charge of the course in zootechnology. After a study tour to zootechnical institutes and centres of animal breeding in Europe he was invited by the governmental department of Agriculture and the Belgian Society of Zootechnology to investigate the relevance of the Mendelian laws of heredity for the improvement of cattle breeding. In the early years of the century, Frateur conducted field research in order to determine the characteristics of the cattle breeds in Belgium. In 1908 Frateur founded the Institute of Animal Husbandry at his university. Here he worked out his programme of experimental genetics until his retirement in 1936. The last six years of his professorship he teached also agricultural economics in the Faculty of Economical Sciences. In Frateur's experimental research the following main lines can be distinguished: 1) The analysis of simple and complex hereditary factors in cattle, rabbits and poultry; 2) The study of qualitative and quantitative characteristics of importance for the improvement of animal breeds; 3) The synthesis of genetic factors from different stock in order to obtain higher yielding breeds with stable characteristics; 4) Theoretical study of the relationship between genotype and phenotype and the influence of environment factors; 5) Theoretical exploration of the issue of variability and modification of newly formed characteristics; 6) Research leading to an explanation of telegony and atavism; 7) The formulation of a theory on the creation of new breeds in domestic animals and plants, and the relation between breed and species. Also he was responding to topical needs, e.g. he determined the causal factor of pullorum epidemic in chicken farming, or he investigated the hereditary resistance against diphteric infection amongst chickens.

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the role of foreign correspondents during the Cold War. More specifically, it focuses on the case study of the relationship between former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt and foreign correspondents in Germanyand abroad. A synthesis of historical research and qualitative analysis of documentsand interviews provides a behind-the-scenes look at media diplomacy during the 70s andearly 80s. From the perspective of system theory and the concept of mediatization, mediaand politics are understood as separate but equal social systems that interact with eachother. This case study is based on documents from the private archives of Helmut Schmidtand from the annals of his party, the German Social Democrats, as well as interviews conducted with Schmidt and former journalist and correspondent Gerd Ruge. Analysis of theinterviews and the private and secret correspondence of Schmidt with journalists affordsan inside view into the role foreign correspondents played during the Cold War when communicationacross the Iron Curtain was especially challenging. Our conclusions show howimportant foreign correspondents are in international relations, while also demonstrating that aspects of international diplomacy, though involving journalists, were not necessarily included in media coverage. This study helps to clarify the complex interactions between media and politics. On the basis of our explorative research, a model is proffered of possible relations and interactions between politicians and foreign correspondents. As sources of information and means of communication, foreign correspondents exert a strong influence on the fates of nations and governments, before and behind the scenes. Esta proposta aborda o papel dos correspondentes estrangeiros durante a Guerra Fria.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo discute a dificuldade do encontro amoroso nos tempos atuais. Parte da leitura psicanalítica sobre as origens dos modos de amar na fase do desenvolvimento psicossexual chamada narcisismo primário, na qual o eu e o outro se constroem dentro de um contexto cultural. Ao longo da vida, a identidade continua sendo modelada pela interação do eu com o mundo em que vive. Do estudo de alguns aspectos do mundo atual, desenvolve a idéia de que a cultura contemporânea apresenta valores e modelos que não sustentam as relações intersubjetivas porque estimulam o modo narcísico de subjetivação. Valores como individualismo, consumismo, culto ao corpo e à imagem, produzem comportamentos que revelam a supremacia do eu. No mundo atual, cada um está voltado para si mesmo, e o outro, como alguém diferente do eu, não é desejável. Essa posição subjetiva impede o autêntico encontro amoroso e sua sobrevivência.

In LEOPOLD I (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier, NCT01029340), males aged 12-65 years with severe haemophilia A and ≥150 exposure days received BAY 81-8973 20-50 IU kg(-1) two or three times per week for 12 months. Potency was based on chromogenic substrate assay per European Pharmacopoeia and label adjusted to mimic one-stage assay potency. Patients were randomized for potency sequence and crossed over potency groups after 6 months, followed by an optional 12-month extension. Primary efficacy endpoint was annualized bleeding rate (ABR). Patients also received BAY 81-8973 during major surgeries. Sixty-two patients received BAY 81-8973 prophylaxis and were included in the analysis. Median ABR was 1.0 (quartile 1, 0; quartile 3, 5.1) without clinically relevant differences between potency periods. Median ABR was similar for twice-weekly vs. three times-weekly dosing (1.0 vs. 2.0). Haemostasis was maintained during 12 major surgeries. Treatment-related adverse event (AE) incidence was ≤7% overall; no patient developed inhibitors. One patient with risk factors for cardiovascular disease developed a myocardial infarction. BAY 81-8973 was efficacious in preventing and treating bleeding episodes, irrespective of the potency assignment method, with few treatment-related AEs. Caution should be used when treating older patients with cardiovascular risk factors. © 2016 Bayer. Haemophilia Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Estas vienen acompañadas, generalmente, de novedosos usos de las tecnologías. En este sentido, el uni - verso de las redes sociales virtuales nos propone diferentes modos de contar relatos audiovisuales, además de experimentaciones con el, los videojue-gos y diversas formas de transmediación. En ese terreno coexisten narrati-vas y usos de viejos medios, convergen y se actualizan prácticas de sentido previas que se bautizan con nuevas nominaciones. Las redes sociales vir-tuales se encuentran insertas en una dinámica narrativa del Yo, propia de Internet. El sujeto de la comunicación —a veces llamado prosumidor— se cuenta generalmente a sí mismo, tiene amigos, seguidores y narra la co-tidianidad de su vida para ellos. Alrededor de estas dinámicas, la imagen ocupa un lugar central. De allí que se afianzara la fotografía como práctica privilegiada en este espacio.

Tomando a Branca de Neve como uma sublimação final da beleza usurpadora da Madrasta e a corporização de uma beleza inicial, considerarei os “inúmeros espelhos fantásticos” de Pessoa e o “cracked looking glass” de Joyce como distorcidas sequelas de uma qualquer pureza de origem ou de uma superfície reflectora una. Argumento que Caeiro, Bloom, o Império Espiritual de Pessoa e a “Irlanda Caricatura do Mundo Sério” de Joyce virão a ser a materialização dessa superfície reflectora de origem, Brancas de Neve posteriores às realidades que lhes são madrastas mas colocadas estrategicamente na sua origem e destinadas a suprir a ausência de uma “única anterior realidade” – pessoal, nacional e global.

To demonstrate safety and efficacy of BAY 81-8973 for prophylaxis and treatment of bleeds in previously treated children. In this phase III, multicentre, open-label, nonrandomized study, boys aged ≤12 years with severe haemophilia A and ≥50 exposure days (EDs) to FVIII products received prophylaxis with BAY 81-8973 25-50 IU kg(-1) ≥2 times weekly for ≥50 EDs. The efficacy endpoint was annualized number of total bleeds. Adverse events (AEs) and immunogenicity were assessed. Fifty-one patients were treated (age: 2× per week (57%) regimen at study start. Median [quartile 1; quartile 3 (Q1; Q3)] annualized number of bleeds for the combined age groups was 1.90 (0; 6.02) for total bleeds, 0 (0; 2.01) for joint bleeds and 0 (0; 0) for spontaneous bleeds. Median (Q1; Q3) annualized number of total bleeds within 48 h of previous prophylaxis infusion was 1.88 (0; 3.97) for children aged <6 years and 0 (0; 1.96) for children aged 6-<12 years. No drug-related serious AEs or inhibitors were reported. Prophylaxis with BAY 81-8973 using individualized prophylaxis regimens of 2× per week, 3× per week and every-other-day infusions was efficacious in prevention and treatment of bleeds in children with severe haemophilia A. Treatment with BAY 81-8973 was well tolerated. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Se planteó realizar un estudio de prevalencia de estos desórdenes en las prisiones de la provincia de Zaragoza. La muestra era de 236 internos, de los cuales una cuarta parte eran mujeres. El cuestionario abreviado del “Examen Internacional de Trastornos de la Personalidad” (IPDE se mostró como una herramienta útil de cribado de esta patología.Personality Disorders are important pathologies in the prison context and awareness of their existence is necessary for several reasons: the high prevelance of PDs amongst inmates, their high level of comorbidity with other mental and addictive disorders, and for the link between PD and impulsive behaviour and possible violence. A study was carried out in prisons in the province of Zaragoza (Spain. The sample consisted of 236 inmates, 25% of whom were women. The abbreviated “International Personality Disorder Examination” (IPDE questionnaire proved to be a useful defining tool for this pathology.

    BAY 81-8973 is a full-length recombinant factor VIII (FVIII) with the same primary amino acid sequence as sucrose-formulated recombinant FVIII (rFVIII-FS) but is produced with advanced manufacturing technologies. To analyse the pharmacokinetics (PK) of BAY 81-8973 after single and multiple dosing across different age and ethnic groups in the LEOPOLD clinical trial programme. The LEOPOLD trials enrolled patients with severe haemophilia A aged 12-65 years (LEOPOLD I and II) or ≤12 years (LEOPOLD Kids) with ≥150 (LEOPOLD I and II) or ≥50 (LEOPOLD Kids) exposure days to any FVIII product and no history of FVIII inhibitors. PK were assessed using chromogenic and one-stage assays (only chromogenic assay for LEOPOLD Kids) after a single 50-IU kg(-1) dose of BAY 81-8973 and, in a subset of patients in LEOPOLD I, after repeated dosing. Pharmacokinetic analyses were also performed based on age (18 to 65, 12 to <18, 6 to <12 and <6 years) and ethnicity (Asian and non-Asian). Pharmacokinetic assessments in the LEOPOLD I trial showed non-inferiority of BAY 81-8973 vs. rFVIII-FS. The PK of BAY 81-8973 were comparable after single and multiple dosing. Age-based analysis in the three trials showed that plasma concentrations were slightly lower for children, but similar for adolescents compared with adults. Pharmacokinetic results were similar in the different ethnic groups. Results of the LEOPOLD trials show that the BAY 81-8973 pharmacokinetic profile is non-inferior to rFVIII-FS. Similar BAY 81-8973 pharmacokinetic values were observed following single and repeated dosing and across ethnic groups. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    I had the fortune to be introduced to Helmut Sies during the mid 1980s, while working as a post-doctoral scientist at the University of California, Berkeley. At that time, Helmut was a frequent visitor of the Bruce Ames' laboratory and a leading authority in antioxidants and oxidative stress. His concepts, ideas and willingness to listen and make constructive suggestions have been far-reaching and visionary. Moreover, they have also been highly infectious, so much so that much of my research to this day has been on the same topic. The following is a personal recount on how the field of antioxidants has evolved since those exciting days in Berkeley.

  12. Persistent halogenated organic contaminants and mercury in northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) from the Canadian Arctic.

    2010-12-01

    Northern fulmars from two breeding colonies in the Canadian Arctic, Cape Vera and Prince Leopold Island, were analyzed for organochlorine pesticides, PCBs, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) and total mercury (Hg). Hepatic concentrations of organochlorines and Hg were highest in the male fulmars from Cape Vera. Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) concentrations did not vary significantly between sexes or colonies. However, concentrations of the perfluorinated carboxylates (PFCAs) were higher in fulmars from Cape Vera than Prince Leopold Island. The C(11)-C(15) PFCAs averaged 90% of the PFCA profile at both colonies. Polychorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and non-ortho PCBs (NO-PCBs) were measured only in birds from Prince Leopold Island. Concentrations of PCDDs, PCDFs, NO-PCBs and Toxic Equivalents (TEQs) did not differ significantly between sexes. ΣTEQ was comprised mainly of ΣTEQ(PCDF). Concentrations of Hg and the persistent halogenated compounds reported in this study were below published toxicological threshold values for wild birds.

  13. Ecological sustainability as the fourth landmark in the development of conservation ethics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    White, Peter S; Tuttle, Julie P

    2013-10-01

    Aldo Leopold, in "The Land Ethic," made 2 important contributions to conservation ethics: he emphasized the community and ecosystem levels of organization and he explicitly included people as members of the biotic community. Leopold's writings remain eloquent, inspirational, and influential, but the ideas he describes are inherently complex, and ecological science has continued to evolve since "The Land Ethic" was published in 1949. We used 4 sets of quotations from Leopold's essays to develop our commentary on the meaning of and challenges in interpreting his work and to explore the ongoing development of conservation ethics: the "A-B cleavage" (Leopold's description of the contrast between utilitarian value versus a broader definition of value in nature), "land health" and the rightness of human action, the right of all species to continued existence in natural populations "at least in spots," and humans as "plain member[s] and citizen[s]" of the "land-community." We define the broader function of land and land health in "The Land Ethic" as including completeness, dynamic stability, and self-renewal in a way that incorporates the needs of humans and all other species. We argue that the consequences of implementing Leopold's land ethic include multiple conservation goals nested within an overall systems approach and that conservation science must clarify the implications of Leopold's ethic by quantitatively investigating and defining large-scale, system-level ecological sustainability. At this scale, land use will encompass areas ranging from large expanses of wilderness to areas dominated by humans. © 2013 Society for Conservation Biology.

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available To investigate the origin of cultivated trumpet daffodils the genome size (2C-value of more than 100 old and new cultivars were measured. A large number of concolored yellow tetraploid cultivars with large coronas seem to be derived from a doubling of chromosomes of a hybrid of the two species N. hispanicus Gouan and N. pseudonarcissus L. This can also still be recognized by the presence of a black spot at the top of the anthers in about 15 % of the tetraploid cultivars. Assuming N. pseudonarcissus as one of the parents of the allotetraploid cultivars, species of trumpet daffodils of section Pseudonarcissi investigated earlier were compared. Doubling of the nuclear DNA content of 23.8 pg of N. pseudonarcissus falls short of the values found for the trumpet daffodils. Species of trumpet daffodils of section Pseudonarcissi with a complementing higher amount of nuclear DNA like N. hispanicus with 25.8 pg, N. poeticus L. with 26 pg and the hexaploid N. pseudonarcissus ssp. bicolor (L. Baker with 67.7 pg (Zonneveld,2008 and other species were evaluated. N. hispanicus with 25.8 pg clearly differs from N. pseudonarcissus with 23.8 pg and is accepted here also as a species. The nuclear DNA content of N. bujei (Fern. Casas Fern. Casas with 30 pg fits with the (ancient hybrid origin for N. bujei between N. longispathus Pugsley (36 pg and N. hispanicus Gouan (25.8 pg.

Livers of adult thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia) and northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) sampled from several locations in the eastern Canadian Arctic during 2007-2008 were analyzed for total Hg in order to assess geographical patterns. Thick-billed murres were collected from five colonies (Coats Island, Digges Island, Akpatok Island, Prince Leopold Island, Minarets) and northern fulmars from two colonies (Prince Leopold Island, Minarets). Murres at the two high Arctic colonies of Prince Leopold Island and the Minarets had significantly higher (two-fold) Hg concentrations (4.13 ± 019 μg g(-1) dw and 4.41 ± 0.33 μg g(-1) dw, respectively) than at the three low Arctic colonies (colony means of 1.62, 1.99 and 2.15 μg g(-1) dw). The differences in Hg concentrations observed between high and low Arctic murre colonies may reflect a combination of different source regions for Hg, as well as a recent dietary shift among low Arctic murres. Fulmars from Prince Leopold Island had significantly higher Hg levels (6.99 ± 1.13 μg g(-1) dw) than those from the Minarets (3.42 ± 0.53 μg g(-1) dw) which may reflect different Hg deposition and methylation patterns on both summer and winter feeding areas. Although there is no evidence linking Hg to adverse population effects in either murres or fulmars at the colonies sampled, levels in some Canadian Arctic marine birds have increased over recent decades and, therefore, continued monitoring, particularly of the high Arctic colonies, is warranted.

In addition to the role that Belgian King Leopold II played in the territorial partition of Africa and the opening up of China, the period sees a growing amount of capital and industrial know-how from Belgium being invested in markets outside Europe. Before World War I, the globalisation of Belgian business and Belgian imperialism oper...

    Northern fulmars from two breeding colonies in the Canadian Arctic, Cape Vera and Prince Leopold Island, were analyzed for organochlorine pesticides, PCBs, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) and total mercury (Hg). Hepatic concentrations of organochlorines and Hg were highest in the male fulmars from Cape Vera. Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) concentrations did not vary significantly between sexes or colonies. However, concentrations of the perfluorinated carboxylates (PFCAs) were higher in fulmars from Cape Vera than Prince Leopold Island. The C{sub 11}-C{sub 15} PFCAs averaged 90% of the PFCA profile at both colonies. Polychorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and non-ortho PCBs (NO-PCBs) were measured only in birds from Prince Leopold Island. Concentrations of PCDDs, PCDFs, NO-PCBs and Toxic Equivalents (TEQs) did not differ significantly between sexes. {Sigma}TEQ was comprised mainly of {Sigma}TEQ{sub PCDF}. Concentrations of Hg and the persistent halogenated compounds reported in this study were below published toxicological threshold values for wild birds. - Northern fulmars in the Canadian Arctic demonstrate sex-specific, colony-specific, and regional differences in contaminant profiles.

  6. Leveraging oxidative stress questions in vivo: Implications and limitations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Arteel, Gavin E.

    2016-01-01

    The elegance of Helmut Sies’ original definition of oxidative stress belies the complexity of the reactions that are potentially involved. This is by no means a criticism of the author, but rather how the words have been used to oversimplify the concept by some. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS, respectively) can be products of a myriad of events within the living body. Indeed, it is now understood that ROS/RNS are critical for normal cellular metabolism and have beneficial effects (e.g., cytotoxicity against invading bacteria). A general problem of studying prooxidants in vivo is that, due to their inherent reactivity, they generally cannot be measured directly. This indirect detection of ‘footprints’ leaves a very large black box that we are to this day only beginning to understand. This manuscript will summarize some considerations that are of utmost importance when translating oxidative stress into in vivo research. Helmut has been a key thought leader, researcher and mentor whose contributions to this field are immeasurable. PMID:27095213

From 1986 until 2004, Schönbacher was leader of a working group on radiation composed of internationally recognised experts. It edited standards of the IEC 60544 series on the determination of the effects of ionizing radiation on electrical insulating materials. The working group also edited three IEC Technical Reports on the determination of long-term radiation ageing in polymers. This standardisation work and long-term experience from CERN on the radiation ageing of materials also contributed to research coordination programmes of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    Reduction-oxidation (redox) response is one of the most important biological phenomena. The concept introduced by Helmut Sies encouraged many researchers to examine oxidative stress under pathophysiological conditions. Our group has been interested in redox regulation under oxidative stress as well as glycobiology in relation to disease. Current studies by our group and other groups indicate that functional and structural changes of glycans are regulated by redox responses resulting from the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) or reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in various diseases including cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson disease, Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), even though very few investigators appear to be aware of these facts. Here we propose that the field "glyco-redox" will open the door to a more comprehensive understanding of the mechanism associated with diseases in relation to glycan changes under oxidative stress. A tight link between structural and functional changes of glycans and redox system under oxidative stress will lead to the recognition and interest of these aspects by many scientists. Helmut's contribution in this field facilitated our future perspectives in glycobiology.

You may think that the connections between CERN and DESY are obvious – particle physics labs with record-breaking accelerators and users from all around the world trying to solve mankind’s great mysteries. We even exchanged a few Directors. But did you know that there are similarities that are much closer to home – for example that both labs have names for their staff in the host language that are untranslatable into English?

    Full Text Available The Origin and Development of Environmental Philosophy in the US according to John Muir, Aldo Leopold and J. Baird Callicot. The publication refers to environmental philosophy, which is also called ecological philosophy or ecophilosophy. It shows in what way philosophical reflection on the environment has been shaped in the American tradition. In this context, the views of the thinkers listed below have been presented, analysed and evaluated. John Muir, an astute observer of wild nature, has been presented as an enthusiast and a prophet persuading a return to nature. Muir was a forester under the strong influence of the representatives of transcendentalism. As an activist, he founded national parks that served to preserve virgin areas, and as a writer he popularized the concept of the preservation of wild areas. For many representatives of ecophilosophy, the views of Aldo Leopold, as expressed in his well-known work, A Sand County Almanac, constituted a new pattern of thinking about wild nature. The book itself is almost generally regarded as a bible of environmental philosophy. Leopold, a forester interested in philosophy, created the fundamentals of holistic environmental philosophy, but the theory he developed is not without defects, to which some attention has been paid in this paper. The theory of J. Baird Callicot presents the attitude of an academic philosopher with regard to wild nature. His attitude is fully professional as regards the applied method, thus allowing the author to avoid committing a naturalistic fallacy. Callicot reinterprets the issues of facts and values, because he thinks that the discoveries of the dynamically developing ecology make possible the reformulation of the traditional approach to such issues by utilising a spirit of acceptance, and lead to a shift from is to ought to be

    Full Text Available Este artigo tece considerações quanto à possibilidade e ao alcance de grupos vivenciais, sob a perspectiva da Psicologia Analítica de Carl G. Jung, em nosso contexto socio-econômico atual. Há uma proposta prática de grupos de construção de máscaras e personagens, e a apresentação e comentários das contribuições de diferentes autores que trazem conceitos junguianos clássicos para a dimensão grupal, consideram de maneira criativa o ritual, do ponto de vista psicológico, e questionam a viabilidade de trabalhos grupais. Numa abordagem mitológica, são considerados Górgona, Dioniso, Ártemis, Eco e Narciso, com destaque à deusa grega Héstia, cujas características são relacionadas a aspectos necessariamente presentes nos grupos vivenciais e à possibilidade de ocorrer uma experiência psicológica. Os grupos vivenciais são considerados favorecedores da perspectiva de alteridade, na medida em que cada participante tem neles a oportunidade de se afirmar e de ser confirmado, isto é, de se expressar e de refletir, num campo interacional fértil.

    Full Text Available Alberto Leite, Narciso Oliveira, Manuela RochaInternal Medicine Department, Hospital de Braga, PortugalAbstract: McArdle disease (glycogen storage disease type V is a pure myopathy caused by an inherited deficit of myophosphorylase. The disease exhibits clinical heterogeneity, but patients typically experience exercise intolerance, acute crises of early fatigue, and contractures, sometimes with rhabdomyolysis and myoglobinuria, triggered by static muscle contractions or dynamic exercise. We present the case of a 54-year-old man with a lifelong history of fatigability, worsening on exertion. Laboratory evaluation revealed significant elevations in levels of creatine kinase (7924 U/L, lactate dehydrogenase (624 U/L, and myoglobulin (671 ng/mL. A muscle biopsy confirmed the presence of McArdle disease. This case report illustrates how, due to embarrassment, the patient hid his symptoms for many years and was eventually extremely relieved and “liberated” once McArdle disease was diagnosed 40 years later.Keywords: McArdle disease, glycogen storage disease, myophosphorylase

    Silva y el psicoanalisis

    Dos psicoanalistas se han ocupado de Silva. Roberto De Zubiria Consuegra y Mauro Torres. El primero sostiene que el poeta vivió bajo la maldición de un complejo de Edipo manifiesto, transferido hacia su hermana Elvira. El segundo estima que nuestro personaje se estancó en la etapa narcisista del desarrollo y escribe: “El narciso primario no va más allá de los límites de la auto contemplación; vive dentro del principio del placer, reñido con la realidad…”. “El narciso secundario puede combinar, en un equilibrio más o menos precario, la auto contemplación con la comunicación verdadera con los demás”. “Silva no podía amar sexualmente a su hermana. El narciso que había en él se oponía definitivamente a dar el formidable paso de Edipo”. “A lo sumo Silva si amó en su hermana, pero con un amor contemplativo de Narciso, que se siente nítidamente reflejado en el tranquilo rostro de aquella. Elvira es el espejo de Narciso”. Recuérdese la contemplación de que la hacía objeto cuando asistían al Teatro Colón.

    Torres analiza De Sobremesa, que considera la expresión del Silva íntimo encarnado en José Fernández, el héroe de la novela, con sus fantasías de vivir la vida plenamente, sueño muy distante de la realidad deparada al poeta por un destino de familia. Fernández exclama” Ah! vivir la vida… eso es lo que quiero, sentir todo lo que se puede sentir, saber todo lo que se puede saber, poder todo lo que se puede”. El texto parece tomado al pie de la letra del de Maria Bashkirtsseff transcrito por el propio Silva en su relat044. Pero Torres se queda a mitad del camino. Señala el síntoma, que sintetiza otros muchos, sin llegar a un diagnóstico. Hacerlo implica poner al lector al tanto de los conceptos fundamentales del psicoanálisis. Para ello me valdré de la Enciclopedia del Psicoanálisis dirigida por Luwing Eidelbert45 y de los trabajos de Heinz

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available Taking wing from Joyce’s reading of Havelock Ellis’s Studies in the Psychology of Sex, in which the Irish writer found an account of cross-species sexual contact, this essay explores Leopold Bloom’s animal metamorphosis in the “Circe” episode of Ulysses. It argues that this encounter with the nonhuman animal is subordinated to the cause of working through barriers of human difference. In the process, the animal that enables this reconciliation disappears. Unable to represent animal interiority, “Circe” settles for merely probing their interiors.

    In the context of modern scientific and technological developments in biomedicine and health care, and the potential consequences of their application on humans and the environment, Potter's global bioethics concept resurfaces. By actualizing Potter's original thoughts on individual bioethical issues, the universality of two of his books, which today represent the backbone of the world bioethical literature, "Bioethics--Bridge to the Future" and "Global Bioethics: Building on the Leopold Legacy", is emphasized. Potter's global bioethics today can legitimately be viewed as a bridge between clinical personalized ethics on the one hand and ethics of public health on the other.

    2003-01-01

    Physicians have been experts in cosmetics for thousands of years. Especially since the early modern period they have produced medical advice literature that included the topic of cosmetics for a general readership. Medical historians have paid scant attention to this aspect of doctors' activities, and when they did, this happened partly in a rather prejudiced manner, resulting in long-lasting misjudgements. This is illustrated with special reference to the case of the Berlin doctor and medical historian Julius Leopold Pagel (1851-1912).

    Full Text Available The question about the beginning of history as a science, i.e. the transformation of historiography into historical research is close connected to the appearance of historism in the nineteenth century. In particular the attainment and the remarkable feat the German historian Leopold von Ranke achieved is generally recognized as a milestone in the history of science. All in all historism founded in 19th-century Germany as well as Rankes work is scarcely conceivable without the contributions of the writers associated with German Romanticism. The following article is an attempt to show the correlation between them.

    Emission factors (EFs) of pollutants emitted by light-duty vehicles (LDV) were investigated in the Leopold II tunnel in Brussels city center (Belgium), in September 2011 and in January 2013, respectively. Two sampling sites were housing the instruments for the measurements of a large range of air pollutants, including non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The NMVOCs and NOx traffic EFs for LDV were determined from their correlation with CO2 using a single point analysis method. The emission factor of NOx is (544 ± 199) mg vehicle-1 km-1; NMVOCs emission factors vary from (0.26 ± 0.09) mg vehicle-1 km-1 for cis-but-2-ene to (8.11 ± 2.71) mg vehicle-1 km-1 for toluene. Good agreement is observed between the EFs determined in the Leopold II tunnel and the most recent EFs determined in another European roadway tunnel in 2004, with only a slight decrease of the EFs during the last decade. An historical perspective is provided and the observed trend in the NMVOCs emission factors reflect changes in the car fleet composition, the fuels and/or the engine technology that have occurred within the last three decades in Europe.

    1978-01-01

    Knowledge of the status of the Yellow-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus) in the Greater Antilles has been clouded by the bird's elusive behavior and spotty distribution on the islands, and by a major movement of North American migrants through the area to and from their wintering grounds in South America. Although Bond (1956) states that they breed in the Greater Antilles, nests are known only from Cuba, St. Croix (Bond 1956), and Jamaica (Lack 1976), and Bond considered the bird rare in Puerto Rico. Other students of Puerto Rican ornithology have suggested that the species is "uncommon" (Leopold 1963), "rare" (McCandless 1958), or a regular migrant or resident species (Wetmore 1916). Although no nests have been reported, most authors suspect that it breeds, and agree that it frequents coastal areas in western or southwestern Puerto Rico, primarily from May to September (Wetmore 1916, Danforth 1936, McCandless 1958, Leopold 1963, Biaggi 1970). From 1968 to 1971 we conducted linear strip censuses along pre-selected routes throughout the island, counting all birds heard or seen (Kepler and Kepler 1970); data we obtained on the Yellow-billed Cuckoo helped clarify and amplify existing information on its distribution and status.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-05-01

    Full Text Available After publication of Adam Hochschild's King Leopold's Ghost in 1998, asserting that King Leopold II had been responsible for a "holocaust" in the Congo and the heated public debate this provoked, we set out to study Belgian people's reactions to these accusations. In two studies we compared collective memories of and emotions associated with Belgium's colonial action in the Congo in different generations. Results show higher levels of collective guilt and support for reparative actions among young adults than among older generations. This difference can be explained either by referring to the different ideological backgrounds in which different generations were socialized, as evidenced by stark differences in collective memories of colonialism, or by referring to the influence of national identification. Indeed, people could adapt their representations of colonialism in order to avoid experiencing a social identity threat. However, evidence for the identity-protecting functions of collective memories and collective emotions was only found in the older generations: young people held negative representations of colonialism independently of their level of national identification. We refer to the normative dimension of collective guilt to interpret these results.

After collection of data and analysis of the findings, the positive and negative impacts resulted from establishment of the industrial estate were investigated, using the Leopold Matrix and Scaling checklist methods providing the managerial solutions in order to minimize the environmental harmful impacts. The existing environmental situation was investigated and then environmental impact alternatives were determined. This was done regarding to the amount and kind of predicted pollutions for industrial estate at the construction and operational phases. The environmental impact assessment of the investigated estate was studied at the three terms of immediate, direct and indirect impacts at the short, medium and long term. By expanding of Leopold Matrix to four parted matrix, in addition to amount, importance and extend of the impacts, the remaining duration of impact in the environment were assessed as a separate factor in environmental impact assessment. The results of the study with two alternatives, such as; No (performance of the project with no concern for environmental issue and as yes (performance of the project with application of the environmental harmful impacts were studied in construction and operation phases. The impact assessment of "NO" property resulted (-1065, therefore the execution of project was rejected, but after reducing the harmful impact performance which were resulted (+1095 has been accepted.

    A year after the commissioning of the Synchrocyclotron (SC), the first experiments were already starting to bear fruit. In July 1958, Tito Fazzini, Giuseppe Fidecaro, Alec Merrison, Helmut Paul and Alvin Tollestrup produced conclusive evidence that approximately one pion in ten thousand decayed into an electron and a neutrino, as predicted by the weak interaction theory. This, the first of CERN's great discoveries, effectively put an end to the controversy that had been raging at the time. A few years later, Giuseppe Fidecaro began a collaboration at CERN with his wife Maria. In the image, Giuseppe and Maria Fidecaro in 1963, surrounded by spark chambers, inside the detector for the experiment on the decay of the rho meson into a pi meson and a photon.

    The grid impedance at a point of common coupling (PCC) is an important parameter for grid integration of Renewable Energies, because it determines the maximum input power capacity of the corresponding PCC. The grid impedance is time and frequency dependent, which makes an analytical or simulative identification challenging. Therefore in practise the data obtained from these calculations are often incorrect and do not reflect the real grid structure. In order to determine the grid impedance more accurately the Helmut-Schmidt-University is developing a novel measurement device to identify the time and frequency dependent grid impedance on the medium-voltage-level up to 20 kVrms. For the application in medium-voltage-grids a special switching concept with high voltage thyristors and innovative presspack-IGBTs has been developed in cooperation with ABB Switzerland Ltd./Semiconductors. This contribution presents the basic grid impedance measurement method and its realization with power electronic components. (orig.)

    The lecture series on electric power plant engineering was initiated in 1969 by Prof. Helmut Schaefer, founder of the then department of power economy and power plant engineering. The lecture series was continuously updated in its contents and didactic approach, e.g. by integrating innovative power generation concepts like micro cogeneration plants and fuel cell systems. The focus is on the fundamentals and function of generators, main transformers, auxiliary installations and protective systems in power plant. Apart from the electrotechnical aspects, also aspects of mechanical engineering are gone into. Also discussed are energy conversion concepts fo renewable power generation plants like wind turbines and PV systems. This is the 5th, completely revised edition. It addresses primarily attendants of the lectures but may also serve as a textbook and reference manual for interested experts.

    Full Text Available This publication is the revised version of the author's doctoral thesis. The theory and practice of nonconformist intellectuals is laid out persuasively through focus on three selected intellectuals who played a decisive role in the first three or four decades of the Republic of Germany: Theodor W. ADORNO, Jean AMÉRY, and Günther ANDERS. Their nonconformist approach is then contrasted with the works of Paul F. LAZARSFELD und Helmut SCHELSKY who are introduced as conformists. Although the selected analyses are well chosen, they cannot represent the whole range of nonconformist thinkers. In addition, the comparison made between non-conformism and conformism is too schematic, and the description of and reflection on intellectuals in today's knowledge societies are only partly convincing. Nevertheless, the approach employed here shows some value and should be further developed, applied, and differentiated by analyzing more cases and integrating further contexts.

  15. Is there an Almeida Thouless line in spin glasses?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Young, A. P.

    2008-03-01

    One of the most striking predictions of the mean field of spin glasses is a line of transitions in the magnetic field temperature plane, called the Almeida-Thouless (AT) line, which separates a high temperature, paramagnetic phase, with finite relaxation times, from a low temperature spin glass phase with infinite relaxation times. It is therefore represents an ergodic to non-ergodic transition with no change in symmetry. Whether or not an AT line occurs in real spin glasses has been controversial. Experiments have looked to see if there is a divergent relaxation time at finite field, and Ref. [1], for example, has argued their data indicates no AT line. However, other experimental papers have come to the opposite conclusion. Theoretically, it seems best to investigate a divergent static quantity, the ``replicon'' susceptibility (which is not accessible experimentally), and the corresponding correlation length. A finite size scaling analysis of the three-dimensional Ising spin glass in a field [2] found no AT line. It is, however, possible that an AT line could occur in higher dimensions, even if it does not occur in d=3. To investigate this question we used an analogous model, a one-dimensional system with long-range interactions which fall off with a power law, in which varying the power is analogous to varying the dimension in the short-range case. We do find an AT line [3] in models corresponding to short-range systems in dimension greater than 6.[1] J. Mattsson, T. Jonsson, P. Nordblad, H. A. Katori, and A. Ito, Phys. Rev.

  16. Single point mutations in the helicase domain of the NS3 protein enhance dengue virus replicative capacity in human monocyte-derived dendritic cells and circumvent the type I interferon response.

    Dengue is the most prevalent arboviral disease worldwide. The outcome of the infection is determined by the interplay of viral and host factors. In the present study, we evaluated the cellular response of human monocyte-derived DCs (mdDCs) infected with recombinant dengue virus type 1 (DV1) strains carrying a single point mutation in the NS3hel protein (L435S or L480S). Both mutated viruses infect and replicate more efficiently and produce more viral progeny in infected mdDCs compared with the parental, non-mutated virus (vBACDV1). Additionally, global gene expression analysis using cDNA microarrays revealed that the mutated DVs induce the up-regulation of the interferon (IFN) signalling and pattern recognition receptor (PRR) canonical pathways in mdDCs. Pronounced production of type I IFN were detected specifically in mdDCs infected with DV1-NS3hel-mutated virus compared with mdDCs infected with the parental virus. In addition, we showed that the type I IFN produced by mdDCs is able to reduce DV1 infection rates, suggesting that cytokine function is effective but not sufficient to mediate viral clearance of DV1-NS3hel-mutated strains. Our results demonstrate that single point mutations in subdomain 2 have important implications for adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) activity of DV1-NS3hel. Although a direct functional connection between the increased ATPase activity and viral replication still requires further studies, these mutations speed up viral RNA replication and are sufficient to enhance viral replicative capacity in human primary cell infection and circumvent type I IFN activity. This information may have particular relevance for attenuated vaccine protocols designed for DV.

Los objetivos especfficos: a interrogar el empleo de la noción de cuerpo, en Freud, en diversos contextos de análisis. Como los relativos a la estructura histerica, la sexualidad, el narcisismo y la cultura, entre otros; b marcar algunas encrucijadas epistemológicas y rutas de inflexion critica, en el pensamiento de Freud, en relación con este termino estelar y c producir significaciones ineditas al tensar el discurso freudiano, descomponiendo y desgranando sus puntualizaciones. EI proceso metodol6gico suscribe la propuesta de Jacques Derrida para efectuar una desconstrucción del discurso que permita su reformulación al desconectarlo de sus nexos establecidos y anudarlo a otros componentes. Los resultados, en terminos de descubrimiento desconstructivo, mostraron que el discurso histerico descubrió la subversión del sujeto con el cuerpo. La pulsión determinó una conexión inusitada entre cuerpo sexuado y psiquismo inconsciente. EI cuerpo torturado develó la presencia de torbellino del goce. EI cuerpo-Narciso reveló no sólo las investiduras de amor al cuerpo, sino tambien las del odio. Las psicosis demostraron que la ensambladura yo-cuerpo se puede desbaratar. La voluntad de dominio propio de una cultura de imperativos se exhibe muy radical en su aplicación al cuerpo. En conclusión, la exploraci6n crftica del discurso freudiano sobre el cuerpo culmina en la distancia a la que se puede encontrar el yo de un ideal de adecuación y obediencia. Es tan rebelde y tan revelador como el inconsciente. Por eso el empeño atroz en someterlo.

    Full Text Available The Congo has recently been the subject of much academic research. This article discusses the major trends and developments. It primarily focuses on the Congo crisis of 1960, which was commemorated in 2010 and has been inquired into by many historians, including American, British and Russian ones. A comparison of their conclusions reveals that Flanders has largely come to terms with its colonial past, but that the French-speaking community has a more problematic memory. Belgian academia, by contrast, has left the old controversies about Leopold II and Lumumba behind and embarked on the path of new imperial history. It approaches the Congolese past from new angles and with new paradigms, such as reciprocity, science, exhibition, representation, etc. Congolese academia suffers from the economic problems of the country, but has managed to produce a number of studies, focusing mainly on regions, religion, and resistance. Strikingly, Congolese historians have little criticism of the colonial era.

  5. Design of two crushing devices for release of the fluid inclusion volatiles

    Dublyansky, Yuri

    2012-06-01

    Two crushing cells have been described for the release of volatiles from fluid inclusions in minerals in vacuum, static gas, and gas-flow applications. To minimize the adsorption of released volatiles on the freshly created mineral surfaces, both devices employed heated crushing. In the MTSN (Museo Tridentine di Scienze Naturali) crusher, samples were disintegrated by a piston driven by an induction coil. For efficient crushing, the electromagnet operated in dynamic impulse mode. In the LFU (Leopold-Franzens-Universität) crusher, the sample was disintegrated through the combined action of compression (manually operated hydraulic ram) and attrition. Crushers are able to be used in off-line and on-line modes, in gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric analyses.

  6. Initiation of vacuum insulator surface high-voltage flashover with electrons produced by laser illumination

    2015-08-01

    In this paper, experiments are described in which cylindrical vacuum insulator samples and samples inclined at 45° relative to the cathode were stressed by microsecond timescale high-voltage pulses and illuminated by focused UV laser beam pulses. In these experiments, we were able to distinguish between flashover initiated by the laser producing only photo-electrons and when plasma is formed. It was shown that flashover is predominantly initiated near the cathode triple junction. Even dense plasma formed near the anode triple junction does not necessarily lead to vacuum surface flashover. The experimental results directly confirm our conjecture that insulator surface breakdown can be avoided by preventing its initiation [J. G. Leopold et al., Phys. Rev. ST Accel. Beams 10, 060401 (2007)] and complement our previous experimental results [J. Z. Gleizer et al., IEEE Trans. Dielectr. Electr. Insul. 21, 2394 (2014) and J. Z. Gleizer et al., J. Appl.

In these experiments, we were able to distinguish between flashover initiated by the laser producing only photo-electrons and when plasma is formed. It was shown that flashover is predominantly initiated near the cathode triple junction. Even dense plasma formed near the anode triple junction does not necessarily lead to vacuum surface flashover. The experimental results directly confirm our conjecture that insulator surface breakdown can be avoided by preventing its initiation [J. G. Leopold et al., Phys. Rev. ST Accel. Beams 10, 060401 (2007)] and complement our previous experimental results [J. Z. Gleizer et al., IEEE Trans. Dielectr. Electr. Insul. 21, 2394 (2014) and J. Z. Gleizer et al., J. Appl. Phys. 117, 073301 (2015)].

    Full Text Available In reason of concernment increase with the environment conservation and quality improvement, also with the health human being protection, organizations of all sizes are focusing its attention to potential environmental impacts of its activities, products or services. For this motive, the aim in this paper is to make an environment evaluation of discarding and destination of residues generated for painting process of a petroliferous equipment industry. Three methods of assessment were used: aspects and impacts spreadsheet construction, modified Leopold matrices construction, and quantification of solid waste generation. The deriving dangerous solid waste generation of used painting process is the environmental aspect that requires greater attention, being necessary to develop new based measures of control in clean technology principles. The integration of the evaluation methods allowed a fast and hierarchyzed visualization of these impacts, beyond allowing an evaluation of the adopted measures of control.

    In 1661, Kaspar Schott published his comprehensive textbook "Cursus mathematicus" in Würzburg for the first time, his "Encyclopedia of all mathematical sciences". It was so successful that it was published again in 1674 and 1677. In its 28 books, Schott gave an introduction for beginners in 22 mathematical disciplines by means of 533 figures and numerous tables. He wanted to avoid the shortness and the unintelligibility of his predecessors Alsted and Hérigone. He cited or recommended far more than hundred authors, among them Protestants like Michael Stifel and Johannes Kepler, but also Catholics like Nicolaus Copernicus. The paper gives a survey of this work and explains especially interesting aspects: The dedication to the German emperor Leopold I., Athanasius Kircher's letter of recommendation as well as Schott's classification of sciences, explanations regarding geometry, astronomy, and algebra.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The Congo has recently been the subject of much academic research. This article discusses the major trends and developments. It primarily focuses on the Congo crisis of 1960, which was commemorated in 2010 and has been inquired into by many historians, including American, British and Russian ones. A comparison of their conclusions reveals that Flanders has largely come to terms with its colonial past, but that the French-speaking community has a more problematic memory. Belgian academia, by contrast, has left the old controversies about Leopold II and Lumumba behind and embarked on the path of new imperial history. It approaches the Congolese past from new angles and with new paradigms, such as reciprocity, science, exhibition, representation, etc. Congolese academia suffers from the economic problems of the country, but has managed to produce a number of studies, focusing mainly on regions, religion, and resistance. Strikingly, Congolese historians have little criticism of the colonial era.

    2003-01-01

    Hydraulic geometry is of fundamental importance in planning, design, and management of river engineering and training works. Although some concepts of hydraulic geometry were proposed toward the end of the nineteenth century, the real impetus toward formulating a theory of hydraulic geometry was provided by the work of Leopold and Maddock (1953). A number of theories have since been proposed.Some of the theories are interrelated but others are based on quite different principles. All theories,however, assume that the river flow is steady and uniform and the river tends to attain a state of equilibrium or quasi-equilibrium. The differences are due to the differences in hydraulic mechanisms that the theories employ to explain the attainment of equilibrium by the river.

    Full Text Available Silverman's game on intervals was analyzed in a special case by Evans, and later more extensively by Heuer and Leopold-Wildburger, who found that optimal strategies exist (and gave them quite generally when the intervals have no endpoints in common. They exist in about half the parameter plane when the intervals have a left endpoint or a right endpoint, but not both, in common, and (as Evans had earlier found exist only on a set of measure zero in this plane if the intervals are identical. The game of Double-Silver, where each player has its own threshold and penalty, is examined. There are several combinations of conditions on relative placement of the intervals, the thresholds and penalties under which optimal strategies exist and are found. The indications are that in the other cases no optimal strategies exist.

    This article reviews energy issues from the point of view of the harmony existing between human beings, the land, and the cosmos. One docent, Aldo Leopold, reflects that the soil of Earth is an energy circuit which grounds much of life. It is a fountain of energy flowing through a network of soils, plants and animals. He calls on us to cultivate, Love, respect and admiration, for the energy of the land. Another docent, named Thomas Berry, takes a more holistic view in understanding energy within the larger universe. The devastation wrought by human beings is negating the billions of years of past development on the Earth. To find alternative energies has been a psychological and spiritual quest to advance our relationship with Earth. Berry asks us to work with, rather than against, the life-giving energies of the Earth.

    After a fifteen year end-of-career excursion into reading and writing in the history of physics, I will give a personal talk about what I have learned, both the good and the bad. Historians do have a problem, to give an account of history (to quote Leopold von Ranke) ``how it actually has been.'' Sometimes we don't and can't know what actually happened in which case it is admissible and tempting to speculate. It is not all right to assert that such and such must have happened. The worst offense, in my opinion, is for authors to tailor their work so as to ``prove'' a pre-conceived thesis. Names will be named. )

    2013-01-01

    This article investigates the historical method of Karl Sudhoff (1853- 1938), Germany's first professor of medical history. It argues that in order to understand his ideas more fully, we need to step outside the historiography of medical history and assess his methodology in relation to the norms and ideals of German academic history writing in general. The article demonstrates that the philology-based "critical method" of Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886) was central to Sudhoff's methodological thinking. It investigates the underlying philosophical and epistemological assumptions of Ranke's method, which tend to be less appreciated than his overt empiricism and explores how Sudhoff applied these to the new professionalizing subdiscipline of the history of medicine. The article argues that Sudhoff's concerns with the methodology of history, which involved a particular conception of the relationship between the human sciences and the medical sciences, offers compelling addresses to our times.

    This article looks at the history of European culture from three angles, those of European uniqueness, European variety and European consciousness. The first section discusses the question of whether the fundamental unit of study, for cultural as well as economic historians, is not Eurasia. The second section is concerned with cultural divisions within Europe, with Europes in the plural. It asks whether it is more illuminating to distinguish two Europes (like Leopold von Ranke), or three (like Jeno Szucs), or even five (like Hugo Hassinger), and examine both centripetal and centrifugal forces in early modern history. The final section deals with the history of the idea of Europe, or more exactly with the rise of consciousness of being European, as it is revealed in early modern histories, geographies, journals and newspapers.

  12. Estimates of Late Pleistocene Runoff in Estancia Drainage Basin, Central New Mexico: Climate Assumptions vs. Model Results

    The climatic conditions leading to highstands of "pluvial" Lake Estancia in central New Mexico have been a matter of considerable debate, resulting in a wide range of estimates for Pleistocene precipitation and temperature in the southwestern United States. Using a simple hydrologic balance approach, Leopold (1951) calculated that precipitation was 50% greater than modern based on the assumption that summer temperatures were 9 ° C colder while winter temperatures were unchanged. In contrast, Galloway (1970) called on temperature decreases of 10-11 ° C throughout the year and a reduction in mean annual precipitation of 14% to raise Lake Estancia to its highstand. In still another study, Brakenridge suggested that highstands could be achieved through no change in precipitation if monthly temperatures were reduced by 7-8 ° C. Experiments with 3 physically-based, continuous-time models to simulate surface runoff (USDA Soil and Water Assessment Tool), groundwater flow (MODFLOW with LAK2 package), and lake evaporation (lake energy balance model of Hostetler and Bartlein, 1990) indicate that none of these proposed full glacial climate scenarios could have produced a highstand lake. In particular, previous workers appear to have overestimated the reduction in evaporation rates associated with their proposed temperature changes, suggesting that using empirical relationships between modern air temperature and evaporation to predict late Pleistocene evaporation is problematic. Furthermore, model-determined reductions in lake evaporation are insufficient to allow for lake expansion as suggested by Galloway and Brakenridge. Even under Leopold's assumption that precipitation increased by 50%, modeled runoff appears to be insufficient to raise Lake Estancia more than a few meters above the lake floor.

  13. Interdisciplinary Adventures in Perceptual Ecology

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bocast, Christopher S.

    A portfolio dissertation that began as acoustic ecology and matured into perceptual ecology, centered on ecomusicology, bioacoustics, and translational audio-based media works with environmental perspectives. The place of music in Western eco-cosmology through time provides a basis for structuring an environmental history of human sound perception. That history suggests that music may stabilize human mental activity, and that an increased musical practice may be essential for the human project. An overview of recent antecedents preceding the emergence of acoustic ecology reveals structural foundations from 20th century culture that underpin modern sound studies. The contextual role that Aldo Leopold, Jacob von Uexkull, John Cage, Marshall McLuhan, and others played in anticipating the development of acoustic ecology as an interdiscipline is detailed. This interdisciplinary aspect of acoustic ecology is defined and defended, while new developments like soundscape ecology are addressed, though ultimately sound studies will need to embrace a broader concept of full-spectrum "sensory" or "perceptual" ecology. The bioacoustic fieldwork done on spawning sturgeon emphasized this necessity. That study yielded scientific recordings and spectrographic analyses of spawning sounds produced by lake sturgeon, Acipenser fulvescens, during reproduction in natural habitats in the Lake Winnebago watershed in Wisconsin. Recordings were made on the Wolf and Embarrass River during the 2011-2013 spawning seasons. Several specimens were dissected to investigate possible sound production mechanisms; no sonic musculature was found. Drumming sounds, ranging from 5 to 7 Hz fundamental frequency, verified the infrasonic nature of previously undocumented "sturgeon thunder". Other characteristic noises of sturgeon spawning including low-frequency rumbles and hydrodynamic sounds were identified. Intriguingly, high-frequency signals resembling electric organ discharges were discovered. These

    The escaping "pneuma" - gas of ancient earthquake concepts in relation to animal, atmospheric and thermal precursors Helmut Tributsch Present affiliation: Carinthian University for Applied Sciences, Bio-mimetics program, Europastrasse 4, 9524 Villach, Austria, helmut.tributsch@alice.it Retired from: Free University Berlin, Institute for physical and theoretical chemistry, Takustr. 3, 14195 Berlin, Germany. For two thousand years ancient European and medieval (including islamic) natural philosophers have considered a dry, warm gas, the "pneuma" ( breath, exhalation), escaping from the earth, as precursor and trigger of earthquakes. Also in China an escaping gas or breath (the qi) was considered the cause of earthquake, first in a document from 780 BC. We know today that escaping gas is not causing earthquakes. But it may be that natural phenomena that supported such a pneuma-concept have again and again been observed. The unpolluted environment and the largely absence of distracting artificial stimuli may have allowed the recognition of distinct earthquake precursors, such as described by ancient observers: (1) the sun becomes veiled and has a dim appearance, turns reddish or dark (2) a narrow long stretched cloud becomes visible, like a line drawn by a ruler, (3) earthquakes preceded by a thin streak of cloud stretching over a wide space. (4) earthquakes in the morning sometimes preceded by a still and a strong frost, (5) a surf - line of the air sea is forming (near the horizon). The described phenomena may be interpreted as a kind of smog forming above the ground prior to an earthquake, a smog exhaled from the ground, which is triggering water condensation, releasing latent heat, changing visibility, temperature, heat conduction and radiation properties. This could perfectly match the phenomenon, which is at the origin of satellite monitored temperature anomalies preceding earthquakes. Based on a few examples it will be shown that the time window of temperature

Se estudiaron las poblaciones de Scolytinae con el objetivo de conocer la fluctuación poblacional de X. ferrugineus y X. affinis en ecosistemas de Tabasco, México durante noviembre 2010-julio 2011, febrero 2010-enero 2011 y 2007. Los métodos de captura utilizados fueron trampa de alcohol, trampa de luz y captura directa sobre sus plantas huésped. Se recolectaron 688 especímenes de X. ferrugineus y 3 911 de X. affinis. La fluctuación poblacional de X. ferrugineus mostró de manera general poblaciones bajas en los ecosistemas estudiados sin alguna estacionalidad marcada, registrándose los máximos picos poblacionales tanto en época seca (marzo-mayo como lluviosa (septiembre-diciembre. A diferencia de las poblaciones de X. affinis que fueron más abundantes y mostraron en la mayoría de los sitios (excepto en el Jardín Botánico José Narciso Rovirosa que se presentó en mayo picos poblacionales en época lluviosa. Las trampas de alcohol y de luz son métodos de recolecta que pueden ser complementarios para el monitoreo de las poblaciones de estos insectos, los cuales se encuentran presentes durante la mayor parte del año y su fluctuación poblacional es dependiente de los recursos alimenticios y sobre todo de factores ambientales como la temperatura y humedad. Se sugiere que X. affinis se ha adaptado y explotado los recursos de mejor manera que X. ferrugineus en estos ecosistemas, a juzgar por la abundancia observada. Las correlaciones entre la abundancia y los factores climáticos presentaron valores positivos y negativos. Los resultados reflejan el comportamiento de las poblaciones, sin embargo, hace falta evaluar de manera detallada algunos factores biol

    Este texto tem como principal objetivo demonstrar como o marxismo, principalmente os comunistas conselhistas, abordaram historicamente o anarquismo. O anarquismo é prenhe de várias tendências: anarco-coletivismo, anarco-individualismo, anarco-mutualismo, anarco-sindicalismo etc. A tendência que destacaremos neste artigo é o anarco-sindicalismo, visto ter sido esta a que os comunistas de conselhos mais criticaram. O Comunismo de Conselhos se desenvolve a partir da segunda metade da década de 1920. Tem em autores como Helmut Wagner, Anton Pannekoek, Karl Korsch, Herman Gorter, Paul Mattick etc. seus principais expoentes. Os autores conselhistas aqui analisados são Wagner e Mattick, pois foram os únicos a polemizarem diretamente com os anarco-sindicalistas no processo da Guerra Civil Espanhola de 1936 a 1939.  Da crítica destes autores ao anarco-sindicalismo conclui-se: que o anarco-sindicalismo e burocrático; que representa uma perspectiva contrária aos trabalhadores; que deve, portanto, ser combatido e não reforçado.

  19. Revisiting the reactions of superoxide with glutathione and other thiols.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winterbourn, Christine C

    2016-04-01

    The reaction between GSH and superoxide has long been of interest in the free radical biology. Early studies were confusing, as some reports suggested that the reaction could be a major pathway for superoxide removal whereas others questioned whether it happened at all. Further research by several investigators, including Helmut Sies, was required to clarify this complex reaction. We now know that superoxide does react with GSH, but the reaction is relatively slow and occurs mostly by a chain reaction that consumes oxygen and regenerates superoxide. Most of the GSH is converted to GSSG, with a small amount of sulfonic acid. As shown by Sies and colleagues, singlet oxygen is a by-product. Although removal of superoxide by GSH may be a minor pathway, GSH and superoxide have a strong physiological connection. GSH is an efficient free radical scavenger, and when it does so, thiyl radicals are generated. These further react to generate superoxide. Therefore, radical scavenging by GSH and other thiols is a source of superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, and to be an antioxidant pathway, there must be efficient removal of these species.

    Conventional control of arc furnaces is essentially pattern driven, with patterns based on the input of electric energy. Closed-loop control, which uses the actual furnace conditions, is at best left to some insular solutions. The system presented in this paper is the first control system which offers closed loop holistic control for power and media input. ARCCESS X-MELT FEOS is a joint development by the Helmut-Schmidt-University and SMS DEMAG AG. The system includes the control of transformer tap, impedance operating point, reactor tap, burners and coal injection as well as replay and simulation of process scenarios for off-line studies and system optimization. In its design great stress was placed on transparency and maintainability using the latest design techniques available. This paper will touch upon the basic control strategies used and will illustrate this with examples from the trials at Lech-Stahlwerke which were successfully conducted to demonstrate the performance and the reliability of the system.

    2015-09-01

    Basic research in plasma medicine has made excellent progress and resulted in the fundamental insights that biological effects of cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP) are significantly caused by changes of the liquid environment of cells, and are dominated by redox-active species. First CAP sources are CE-certified as medical devices. Main focus of plasma application is on wound healing and treatment of infective skin diseases. Clinical applications in this field confirm the supportive effect of cold plasma treatment in acceleration of healing of chronic wounds above all in cases where conventional treatment fails. Cancer treatment is another actual and emerging field of CAP application. The ability of CAP to kill cancer cells by induction of apoptosis has been proved in vitro. First clinical applications of CAP in palliative care of cancer are realized.

    2015-01-01

    This book shows how the study of multi-hadron production phenomena in the years after the founding of CERN culminated in Hagedorn's pioneering idea of limiting temperature, leading on to the discovery of the quark-gluon plasma - announced, in February 2000 at CERN. Following the foreword by Herwig Schopper -- the Director General (1981-1988) of CERN at the key historical juncture -- the first part is a tribute to Rolf Hagedorn (1919-2003) and includes contributions by contemporary friends and colleagues, and those who were most touched by Hagedorn: Tamás Biró, Igor Dremin, Torleif Ericson, Marek Gázdzicki, Mark Gorenstein, Hans Gutbrod, Maurice Jacob, István Montvay, Berndt Müller, Grazyna Odyniec, Emanuele Quercigh, Krzysztof Redlich, Helmut Satz, Luigi Sertorio, Ludwik Turko, and Gabriele Veneziano. The second and third parts retrace 20 years of developments that after discovery of the Hagedorn temperature in 1964 led to its recognition as the melting point of hadrons into boiling quarks, and t...

    2006-11-15

    The author discusses the paper of Helmut Alt, published in the International Journal Energy Technology and Policy, in 2005. With more than 15,000 plants of different capacity ranges, Germany has become the world's No. 1 in generating electricity from wind power, covering around 4% of the electricity requirements at home. This is due on the one hand to the successful promotion by the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) and, on the other hand, to the tax breaks from loss allocation and depreciation. During low-load periods, load dispatchers today already have to balance power gradients of more than 10% of the respective network load per minute, which are increasingly covered by the provision of balancing power from conventional power plants. The legally fixed permanent subsidy burden of the electricity industry due to the high compensation fee for wind power alone currently amounts to? 1.4 billion a year. If base load capacity from nuclear power plants is replaced in the medium term, this will not reduce but rather increase CO{sub 2} emissions as generation from gas turbines will have to be increased temporarily in times of flagging winds.

    1974-01-01

    The "open pill box" (in the background at the left) contains the ion source, where for many years all protons accelerated at CERN were "born". It is directly attached to the acceleration column where the protons pass from 520 kV to earth potential. The "electronics platform" (big metal structure on insulating pillars in the middle of the picture, for details see 7403120 and 7403071X) contains all the equipment that has to be at the same potential as the source itself. It is being admired by Helmut Haseroth and Jean Luc Vallet (during servicing). The smaller metal box in the foreground is part of the "bouncer" which compensated the voltage drop during acceleration of a proton pulse. The high voltage supply (not included in this photo) was originally a Cockcroft-Walton generator. In 1973 it was replaced by a Sames generator (see 7403074X). The "old" 50 MeV Linac 1, the original PS injector built in the 1950s, was (since 1976) replaced by a new 50 MeV linac (Linac 2). It had a 750 keV "Cockcroft-Walton" (see 760...

  13. Development of pediatric and congenital heart surgery in latin america: accomplishments and remaining challenges.

    In the last 70 years, congenital heart surgery has dramatically evolved, and Latin America has completed this journey with unique regional features. Since the first ligation of a patent arterial duct by Enrique Finochietto in 1941 in Buenos Aires, the development of congenital heart surgery was deeply influenced by funding restrictions and scarcity of technology. However, the determined work of cardiovascular surgery pioneers as Hugo Filipozzi, Euriclides Zerbini, and Adib Jatene in Brazil; Helmut Jaeger in Chile; Hugo Baz and Clemente Robles in Mexico; Alberto Bejarano in Colombia; and Mario Brea and Fernando Tricerri in Argentina made cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass available by the late 1950s. In the following five decades new generations of cardiovascular surgeons received the legacy of these outstanding leaders and made several important contributions to the field in tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries, tricuspid atresia, single ventricle, truncus arteriosus, heart transplantation, and many others. Many centers in Latin America routinely perform congenital heart disease surgery with excellent results, covering the entire spectrum from the newborn to the adult congenital heart patient. The most important challenge that remains is to provide access to care to all children with congenital heart disease in Latin America, since currently only 42% of them receive surgical treatment.

  14. What goes around comes back around: life narratives and the significance of the past in Donna Leon's Death at La Fenice.

    Domínguez-Rué, Emma

    2014-04-01

    This paper examines the life narratives of characters in Donna Leon's much-celebrated novel Death at La Fenice (1992). In the first of her Brunetti mystery series, Commissario Guido Brunetti investigates the death of the renowned conductor Helmut Wellauer, poisoned during a performance of La Traviata at La Fenice. As his investigation progresses, Brunetti discovers dark secrets in the past of the acclaimed Maestro, revealing his dishonesty and cruelty, but, most shockingly, his involvement in a horrendous case of child abuse and death by neglect. My analysis will address the role of memory and the significance of the past for the present, as the tragic experiences of the Santina sisters in the 1930s become intertwined with those of Wellauer's present wife Elizabeth and her daughter Alexandra. Using literary theory and cultural gerontology as methodological tools, this paper will explore Leon's portrait of the aging process: Wellauer's lack of remorse for his past sins and his inability to cope with impending deafness will be contrasted with the painful account by Wellauer's former lover, the once famous soprano Clemenza Santina, whose narrative response to her traumatic experience renders the past more alive than the present. The significance of memory, as well as the crucial role of life narratives in the personal and cultural construction of identity, will be addressed to interrogate the ways in which our perception of aging can be enriched by literary studies.

  15. On the history of the quantum. Introduction to the HQ2 special issue

    van Dongen, Jeroen; Dieks, Dennis; Uffink, Jos; Kox, A. J.

    The historiography of quantum theory exhibits a period of intense activity that started in the 1960s, with the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, and continued with the work of scholars like Max Jammer, Martin J. Klein, John Heilbron, Paul Forman and Thomas Kuhn. At the end of the 1970s, however, interest of historians seems to have shifted away, even if there have been notable exceptions, such as the multi-volume work by Jagdish Mehra and Helmut Rechenberg, and monographs like those of Olivier Darrigol and Mara Beller. Perhaps this development has had to do with a diminishing number of scholars possessing the necessary technical skills in physics together with historical sensitivity. Moreover, many historians of physics in this period have focused their interest on another subject, namely the development of the theory of relativity. Stimulated by the start of the Einstein Papers Project, and initiated by pioneers such as John Stachel and John Norton around 1980, very soon a dedicated group of scholars devoted time and energy to analyzing the genesis and development of general relativity, and other aspects of Einstein's science.

    Full Text Available Andreas Rank, Oliver Weigert, Helmut OstermannMedizinische Klinik III – Grosshadern, Klinikum der Ludwig Maximilians-Universitaet Munich, Munich, GermanyAbstract: Traditionally, anti-platelet autoantibodies accelerating platelet clearance from the peripheral circulation have been recognized as the primary pathopysiological mechanism in chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP. Recently, increasing evidence supports the co-existence of insufficient megakaryopoiesis. Inadequate low thrombopoietin (TPO levels are associated with insufficient proliferation and differentiation of megakaryocytes, decreased proplatelet formation, and subsequent platelet release. Recently two novel activators of TPO receptors have been made available: romiplostim and eltrombopag. In several phase III studies, both agents demonstrated increase of platelet counts in about 80% of chronic ITP patients within 2 to 3 weeks. These agents substantially broaden the therapeutic options for patients with chronic ITP although long-term results are still pending. This review will provide an update on the current conception of underlying mechanisms in ITP and novel, pathophysiologically based treatment options.Keywords: immune thrombocytopenia, romiplostim, eltrombopag, megakaryopoiesis

  19. Mean field model for synchronization of coupled two-state units and the effect of memory

    Escaff, D.; Lindenberg, K.

    2014-01-01

    A prototypical model for a mean field second order transition is presented, which is based on an ensemble of coupled two-states units. This system is used as a basic model to study the effect of memory. To wit, we distinguish two types of memories: weak and strong, depending on the feasibility of linearizing the generalized mean field master equation. For weak memory we find static solutions that behave much like those of the memoryless (Markovian) system. The latter exhibits a pitchfork bifurcation as the control parameter is increased, with two stable and one unstable solution. The former exhibits an imperfect pitchfork bifurcation to states with the same behaviors. In both cases, the stability of the static solutions is analyzed via the usual linearization around the equilibrium solution. For strong memories we again find an imperfect pitchfork bifurcation, with two stable and one unstable branch. However, it is no longer possible to analyze these behaviors via the usual linearization, which is local in time, because a strong memory requires knowledge of the system for its entire past.

    Deformable self-propelled particles provide us with one of the most important nonlinear dissipative systems, which are related, for example, to the motion of microorganisms. It is emphasized that this is a subject of localized objects in non-equilibrium open systems. We introduce a coupled set of ordinary differential equations to study various dynamics of individual soft particles due to the nonlinear couplings between migration, spinning and deformation. By introducing interactions among the particles, the collective dynamics and its collapse are also investigated by changing the particle density and the interaction strength. We stress that assemblies of self-propelled particles also exhibit a variety of non-equilibrium localized patterns. It is our great pleasure to dedicate the present article to Professor Helmut R. Brand on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. Professor Brand has made outstanding efforts for the scientific interaction in the field of non-linear and non-equilibrium physics between Japan and Germany for the past thirty years.

    Long term socio-ecological research across temporal and spatial scales Simron Jit Singh and Helmut Haberl Institute of Social Ecology, Vienna, Austria Understanding trajectories of change in coupled socio-ecological (or human-environment) systems requires monitoring and analysis at several spatial and temporal scales. Long-term ecosystem research (LTER) is a strand of research coupled with observation systems and infrastructures (LTER sites) aimed at understanding how global change affects ecosystems around the world. In recent years it has been increasingly recognized that sustainability concerns require extending this approach to long-term socio-ecological research, i.e. a more integrated perspective that focuses on interaction processes between society and ecosystems over longer time periods. Thus, Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research, abbreviated LTSER, aims at observing, analyzing, understanding and modelling of changes in coupled socio-ecological systems over long periods of time. Indeed, the magnitude of the problems we now face is an outcome of a much longer process, accelerated by industrialisation since the nineteenth century. The paper will provide an overview of a book (in press) on LTSER with particular emphasis on 'socio-ecological transitions' in terms of material, energy and land use dynamics across temporal and spatial scales.

    2005-04-01

    After recounting several dreams and related alchemical interests of Jung's tied to the 17(th) century, a contextualizing look at select scientific and philosophical developments of that century is presented. Several precursors of the contemporary debates on the mind/body relation are noted, with special reference to the work of Antonio Damasio. This in turn leads to a reconsideration of the work of the 17(th) century polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, which Jung read as a major precursor to his formulation of synchronicity (via Leibniz's concept of 'pre-established harmony'). Leibniz was the first philosopher to articulate the mind/body relationship in terms of supervenience, sharing an accord with those contemporary philosophers and scientists who see the mind as being an emergent property of the body-brain. Similarly, these ideas are also consistent with a reformulation of synchronicity in terms of emergence. Tracing Leibniz's interest in China reveals another set of links to Jung and to emergentism. Jung's use of Taoist concepts in developing the synchronicity principle is well known. According to scholars, Leibniz was the first major Western intellect to study the I-Ching, through the assistance of a Jesuit missionary in Beijing, Fr. Joachim Bouvet. Some details of the Leibniz-Bouvet correspondence are discussed here. Despite Helmut Wilhelm's presenting aspects of this correspondence at an Eranos conference, Jung does not appear to have integrated it into his writing on synchronicity--a possible reason for this omission is suggested.

    Werner Heisenberg (centre) with Wolfgang Pauli (left) and Enrico Fermi on Lake Como, September 1927. An exhibition on the life and work of Werner Heisenberg will be on display in the Main Building (Mezzanine) at CERN from 1 - 23 July. The exhibition was produced by the University Archive of Leipzig University (Gerald Wiemers) and the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik in Munich (Helmut Rechenberg) to mark the centenary of Heisenberg's birth in 1901. German theoretical physicist Werner Karl Heisenberg (5 December 1901 - 1 February 1976) was one of the leading scientists of the 20th century. He carried out important work in nuclear and particle physics, but his most significant contribution was to the development of quantum mechanics. He is best known for his uncertainty principle, which restricts the accuracy with which some properties of atoms and particles - such as position and linear momentum - can be determined simultaneously. In 1932 he was awarded the Noble Prize in Physics 'for the creation of q...

    Low frequency noise has always been a challenge in propeller driven aircraft. At low frequencies passive noise treatments are not as efficient as active noise reduction systems. The Helmut-Schmidt-University has built up a full-scale test rig with an original A400M aircraft structure. This provides a good opportunity to develop and test active noise reduction systems in a realistic environment. The currently installed system consists of mechanical actuators and acoustical sensors. The actuators are called TVAs (Tuneable Vibration Absorber) and contain two spring-mass systems whose natural frequencies are adjusted to the BPFs (Blade Passage Frequency) of the propellers. The TVAs are mounted to the frames and the force direction is normal to the skin. The sensors are condenser microphones which are attached to the primary structure of the airframe. The TVAs are equipped with signal processing devices. These components carry out Fourier transforms and signal amplification for the sensor data and actuator signals. The communication between the TVAs and the central control unit is implemented by the CAN Bus protocol and mainly consists of complex coefficients for the sensor and actuator data. This paper describes the basic structure of the system, the hardware set-up and function tests of the controller.

  7. Conference: ActiWiz – Optimizing material selection at CERN's accelerators from the radiological point of view

    2012-01-01

    by Dr. Helmut Vincke (CERN), Chris Theis (CERN). Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 15:00 to 16:30 at CERN ( 864-1-D02 - BE Auditorium Prévessin ) Description: The operation of a high-energy accelerator inevitably triggers the activation of equipment, which poses a safety hazard. Consequently access and handling constraints have to be imposed to ensure optimized working conditions. One of the key parameters determining the level of radioactivity is the material composition. Considering the radiological impact in addition to the engineering requirements during the selection of material clearly results in a safety benefit as well as a more efficient accelerator operation due to less stringent access and handling constraints. Another aspect is the minimization of future radioactive waste, which constitutes an important part of CERN’s commitment to limit its environmental impact by applying best practices. The ActiWiz software developed at CERN provides an easy to use method to optimize the m...

  10. The speech choir in central European theatres and literary-musical works in the first third of the 20th century

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Speech choirs emerged as an offshoot of the choral gatherings of a wider youth musical and singing movement in the first half of the 20th century. The occasionally expressed opinion that choral speaking was cultivated primarily by the Hitler Youth and pressed into service on behalf of Nazi nationalist and racist propaganda is, historically, only partially accurate. The primary forces of choral speaking in Germany were, from 1919, the Social Democratic workers’ and cultural movement and the Catholic youth groups, in addition to elementary and secondary schools. The popularity of speech choirs around 1930 was also echoed in the music of the time. Compositions for musical speech choirs were produced by composers like Heinz Thiessen, Arnold Schönberg, Ernst Toch, Carl Orff, Vladimir Vogel, Luigi Nono, Helmut Lachenmann and Wolfgang Rihm. Moving forward from the Schönberg School, the post-1945 new music thereby opens up the spectrum of vocal expressions of sound beyond that of the singing voice. It does so not only for solo voices but for the choir as well.

    Full Text Available Este artigo esboça um enfoque teórico relacional para o estudo da ação coletiva empresarial. Para tal, argumenta-se que tanto o individualismo metodológico de Mancur Olson como a análise sociológica das classes sociais de Claus Offe e Helmut Wiesenthal, enfoques amplamente difundidos nos estudos sobre o empresariado, apresentam uma forte tendência essencialista. Tal tendência tende a substituir o conflito social por determinismos de vários tipos - econômicos, culturais, psicológico etc. Em contraposição a estes enfoques, é esboçada uma abordagem relacional na qual a ação coletiva empresarial é o resultado das relações de forças existentes, destacando a dimensão conflitiva e histórica do processo de construção da ação e da organização coletiva. Para o estudo das associações empresariais, esta perspectiva permite pensá-las como resultado dos conflitos sociais e de lugar.

Los métodos de captura utilizados fueron trampa de alcohol, trampa de luz y captura directa sobre sus plantas huésped. Se recolectaron 688 especímenes de X. ferrugineus y 3 911 de X. affinis. La fluctuación poblacional de X. ferrugineus mostró de manera general poblaciones bajas en los ecosistemas estudiados sin alguna estacionalidad marcada, registrándose los máximos picos poblacionales tanto en época seca (marzo-mayo como lluviosa (septiembre-diciembre. A diferencia de las poblaciones de X. affinis que fueron más abundantes y mostraron en la mayoría de los sitios (excepto en el Jardín Botánico José Narciso Rovirosa que se presentó en mayo picos poblacionales en época lluviosa. Las trampas de alcohol y de luz son métodos de recolecta que pueden ser complementarios para el monitoreo de las poblaciones de estos insectos, los cuales se encuentran presentes durante la mayor parte del año y su fluctuación poblacional es dependiente de los recursos alimenticios y sobre todo de factores ambientales como la temperatura y humedad. Se sugiere que X. affinis se ha adaptado y explotado los recursos de mejor manera que X. ferrugineus en estos ecosistemas, a juzgar por la abundancia observada. Las correlaciones entre la abundancia y los factores climáticos presentaron valores positivos y negativos.

    Full Text Available Este articulo retrata la imagen de Felipe II en la historiografía de lengua alemana. Como España ejerció una posición hegemónica en Europa Central, y con relación al Reich ('Camino Español', la imagen del Rey Prudente no pudo ser sino negativa. Llama la atención que el rey atrajera el interés de historiadores tan importantes como Friedrich von Schiller y Leopold von Ranke. Los dos —como el público en general— se interesaron sobre todo por la figura de don Carlos y el presunto papel de Felipe II en la muerte del príncipe. Ranke y su escuela se sintieron fascinados por la construcción y los problemas del Imperio español. Pero en general durante el siglo xx la historiografía en los países de lengua alemana no mostró gran interés por el Rey Prudente, ya que hasta la fecha carecemos de una biografía escrita por un historiador de lengua alemana.This article outlines the image of Philip II in the German-speaking historiography. As Spain exercised a hegemonical position with regard to the 'Reich', and especially at its western territories ('Spanish Road', the image of Philip was mainly a negative one. It is interesting to note that this king attracted the attention of some the most prominent historians in Germán language: Friedrich von Schiller and especially Leopold von Ranke; both — as the Germán public— were interested (although not exclusively in the death of Don Carlos and the possible role Philip played in it. Ranke and this followers were also fascinated by the size and problems of Spanish Empire. But generally speaking one could say that the «prudent king» stood not in the forefront of interest of German-speaking historians, as did Gustav Adolf, Richelieu or Louis XVI.

In 1688, after the military occupation of the Principality by Habsburg troops and the acceptance of the Habsburg kings’ suzerainty by the General Assemblies, the institution of Transylvania – which was crystallized in the second half of the sixteenth century –will be confronted with the process of subordination to the Court of Vienna, like all other central institutions of Transylvania. In the case of princely institution, this process takes place in two stages. In the first stage, which starts after the military occupation of the country by the Habsburg troops, and lasts until 1722, the Viennese court endeavors to interrupt the continuity of the exercise of authority by the country’s indigenous princes. To this end the Viennese court prohibited by a clause of the Leopold Diploma (1691 minor exercise by Prince Michael II Apafis until the fulfillment of majority. In order to achieve this, the Viennese Court forbids, by a clause of the Leopold Diploma (1691, the exercise of power for the minor prince Michael Apafis II, until the age of his majority. Thereafter, Prince Michael II Apafis will be removed from Transylvania, having to live in exile in Vienna. After his death, the General Assemblies do not receive the Habsburgs’ permission to choose a new prince. In 1772, by accepting the Pragmatic Sanction by the General Assemblies of Transylvania, the second phase of subordination of the princely institution begins. By this important document, the Habsburgs are recognized by the General assemblies as hereditary princes of Transylvania, which becomes, in this way, a hereditary principality. All Habsburg emperors, starting with Charles VI, will bear the title of a Transylvanian prince. In 1774, Maria Theresa takes another step to ensure and strengthen the title of Prince of Transylvania to the Habsburg dynasty: the General

    The existence of balance, coordination and required order among natural elements is one of the key factors in the ecosystem. If this balance is disturbed under certain circumstances, it will damage the structure of living existences and more specifically human beings. Since a half century ago, factors such as important economical and industrial activites, advanced technologies together with growing population and lack of concordance among different couhntries to take optimal advantage of the existing natural resources have distrubed the balance in the ecosystem. As a result, man has caused many problems such as high death tolls and arduous diseases due to the different pollutions in water, air, land, sound, temperature, etc and factors such as erosion, desert, expansion, floods, extinction of plant and animal species, ozone layer destruction, global warming, sea level rise and greenhouse gases increase. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is to recognize and assess systematic consequences of projects and programs on elements like physicochemical, biological, cultural, economical and social phenomena in th environment; in other words it is a way or method to determine the direction of predication and assessment of environmental impacts of activities on the environmental health of the ecosystem affecting human lives. In this study, and environmental impact assessment of the establishment of the Shahzand Industrial Estate in Arak at the central part of Iran was investigated.

The existing environmental situation was investigated and then environmental impact alternatives were determined. This was done in regard to the amount and kind of predicted pollution for the

    This study broadens the archaeological research of the the Bezděz - Doksy region in Northern Bohemia, Czech Republic (Dreslerová et al., 2013). Extensive field works between 2008 and 2012 showed that the region has been settled since the La Tène period. Survey of the alluvial plain of the Robečský stream revealed a record of two intensive erosion episodes in the catchment. We suppose that the first episode may be connected to land use changes and the beginnings of agriculture at the site in the La Tène period. The second episode may be connected to the foundation of the medieval village of Okna, which came into existence in the vicinity of the La Tène settlement. The accelerated erosion of former albeluvisols (on loess) led to significant changes of landscape in the region. The aim of this contribution is to bring a reconstruction of soils, vegetation and relief at the site of Okna before the human occupancy and to detect landscape changes over the time. It focuses on the hypothesis that the accelerated soil erosion has been occurring at the site since the first anthropogenic influence like it is demonstrated by other studies in Europe (e.g. Leopold and Völkel, 2007; Boardman, 2013). An abrupt change of land use from forest to arable land is proved by palynological records. Simultaneously there are buried soil horizons and alluvial sediments which can be studied as geoarchives. The difficulties in reconstruction of relief and quantification of the historical erosion effects are faced by applying GIS and model approaches (Peeters et al., 2003). References Boardman, J., 2013.

La libertad de elegir en el mol no tiene relación con la libertad individual propuesta por John Stuart Mill; ni con la anarco-individualista propuesta por Henry David Thoreau o incluso por Aldo Leopold en el elogio que éste realiza de la autonomía del pionero estadounidense. En la libertad de elegir en el mol han caducado todas las aventuras y las relaciones humanas se convierten en lo que Sloterdijk denomina "relaciones cristalizadas", bajo el proyecto del aburrimiento normativo poshistórico. La expresión económico-filosófica del mundo poshistórico es la idea de libertad de elegir, enunciada por Milton Friedman. El mol, actual Palacio de Cristal, es como una enciclopedia ilustrada, que exhibe, en orden y sin peligros, el conjunto, ya no del saber, sino de los bienes disponibles. Con ello, se modifica la condición humana.Based on the Sloterdijk's concept of sphere, we analyse the protection provided by the malls. Nevertheless, the freedom of choosing in a mall does not have any relation to liberty as it was proposed by John Stuart Mill, neither to the anarcho-individualist one proposed by Henry David Thoreau, nor even to that one proposed by Aldo Leopold, when he praises the authonomy of American pioneer. In the freedom process of choosing in the mall, all adventures perish and human relations become what Sloterdijk denominated "crystalised relations", under a post-historic normative boring project. The economic-philosophical expression of post-historic world is the idea of freedom of choosing, conceived by Milton Friedman. The mall, the current Crystal Palace, is like an enlightened encyclopaedia, which shows, in order and without dangers, the totality, no longer of knowledge, but of available goods. In this way, human condition has modified.

However, statements such as these still focus primarily on the value of the earth to generations of humans, rather than on the earth itself. They remain far from meeting addressing our obligation to the land as summarized, for example, by Aldo Leopold, widely regarded as the principal founder of the American conservation movement: "The individual is a member of a community of interdependent parts. The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants and animals, or collectively the land." In this poster, we compare and contrast the various existing codes and suggest ways in which ethical obligations to the community itself, as defined by Leopold, could be more clearly incorporated.

  20. Designing an Effective Environmental Education Program that Meets the Needs of Stakeholders: A Case Study of the High Lonesome Ranch in DeBeque, Colorado

    Science.gov (United States)

    Haley, Bethany M.

    A successful environmental education (EE) program is one that supports the mission of the parent organization, meets the needs of its audiences, and is effective at increasing environmental literacy. The High Lonesome Ranch (HLR), a private corporation that operates according to a mixed-use landscape model inspired by Aldo Leopold's land ethic, intends to develop an EE program that will operate within an associated nonprofit organization, the High Lonesome Institute (HLI), to further the mission of promoting a contemporary land ethic. Although HLR owners and staff are motivated to develop an EE program, there is currently no clear consensus regarding an overall vision for the program. The purpose of my thesis is to provide HLR owners and their advisors with a recommended design for the education program based on the missions of the HLR and HLI, sound EE theory, stakeholder feedback, and feasibility within the environment of the HLR. To accomplish this, I reviewed pertinent EE literature, reviewed the models used by existing EE programs, and undertook a two-pronged qualitative case study that gathered feedback from the major stakeholders in the HLR/HLI program. The case study included stakeholder interviews and a one-day facilitated charrette. Although feedback from stakeholders on specific program elements ranged widely, there was widespread support for an EE program at the HLR. From this research, I made a series of recommendations regarding how the HLR/HLI should proceed in development, specific program elements, and next steps in the process.

    Full Text Available The  well  known  conference  of  Paul  Ricœur ‘Love and Justice’, pronounced when he received Leopold Lucas award in 1989, shows a dialectical tension between those two notions, and searches deeper in the philosophical –and even theological– basis that reveals love as rectification and safeguard of justice; without love, justice would be cruel, utilitarian and, paradoxically, unfair, remembering us the old Roman adage: “summum ius, summa iniuria”. Moreover, Levinas, in his “Talmudic Lesson on Justice”, compiled after in New Talmudic Readings, presents a less intuitive position, but no less interesting: justice is the place of forgiveness and love, it becomes humane everything it touches, and that’s why it doesn’t need correction; a justice that needed love, had maybe never been true justice. Here lies a critic that complements and improves both, the theory exposed by Paul Ricœur and its Rawlsian basis.

    Still most concepts of soil formation, weathering production rates and weathering front ideas are dealing with a monolayered near-surface underground and subsoil. At best a line is given on so-called moved regolith. In fact the subsurface is often characterized by stratified and multilayered slope deposits with thicknesses exceeding 1 m. These stratified slope sediments play a significant role in the nature of the physical and chemical properties as well as on soil forming processes. Examples are given for sediment sourced chemical elements and common clay minerals, and the significance of slope sediments as both barriers and pathways for interflow that moves through the stratified sediments. The stratified subsurface is often datable by numeric age techniques (OSL) showing up how sediment features contradict weathering effects and meaning e.g. for soil genesis. In the mid latitudes, geomorphic and sedimentologic evidence supports a periglacial origin, involving solifluction, for the origin of these slope deposits. The study areas are situated within the Colorado Front Range, U.S. and the Bavarian Forest, Germany. The projects are currently financed and supported by the German Science Foundation DFG.

    In 1934, Max Born and Leopold Infeld suggested and developed a nonlinear modification of Maxwell electrodynamics, in which the electrostatic self-energy of an electron was a finite value. In this paper, after a brief introduction to Lagrangian formulation of Born-Infeld electrodynamics with an external source, the explicit forms of Gauss's law and the electrostatic energy density in Born-Infeld theory are obtained. The capacitance and the stored electrostatic energy for a parallel-plate and spherical capacitors are computed in the framework of Born-Infeld electrostatics. We show that the usual relations U=1/2C_{Maxwell}(triangle φ)2 and U=q2/2C_{Maxwell} are not valid for a capacitor in Born-Infeld electrostatics. Numerical estimations in this research show that the nonlinear corrections to the capacitance and the stored electrostatic energy for a capacitor in Born-Infeld electrostatics are considerable when the potential difference between the plates of a capacitor is very large.

  4. Robert Carswell: the first illustrator of MS.

    The first illustration of multiple sclerosis (MS) was by a young Scottish physician and artist, Dr Robert Carswell. Recognized as a talented illustrator by his teachers, he was encouraged to create an anatomy and pathology atlas. He spent years in the hospitals and mortuaries of Paris and Lyon painting watercolours and pen and ink drawings of patients and post mortem preparations. Of the 1034 paintings, 99 are of the brain and spinal cord and Plate 4, figure 4.4 in the atlas (Figure 2), is of MS. Carswell indicated he saw two examples of this pathology, but had not examined either patient, but illustrated one of them. We know little about the clinical history other than that the patient was paralyzed. About 200 of the atlases were printed, and it is still regarded as one of the greatest and most beautiful of all medical books. Carswell was appointed as the first Professor of Anatomy at the North London Hospital, later renamed the University College Hospital UK, where the original copy of his great atlas is archived. Due to ill health he resigned after a few years to reside in the healthier air outside Brussels, Belgium. He was appointed physician to King Leopold, but was also noted for his care of the poor. Queen Victoria knighted him for his care of King Louis Philippe of France when he was in exile. Although English journals did not note his passing at the age of 64 years, his great atlas remains as his memorial.

    The hope for creating widespread change in social values has endured among conservation professionals since early calls by Aldo Leopold for a "land ethic." However, there has been little serious attention in conservation to the fields of investigation that address values, how they are formed, and how they change. We introduce a social-ecological systems conceptual approach in which values are seen not only as motivational goals people hold but also as ideas that are deeply embedded in society's material culture, collective behaviors, traditions, and institutions. Values define and bind groups, organizations, and societies; serve an adaptive role; and are typically stable across generations. When abrupt value changes occur, they are in response to substantial alterations in the social-ecological context. Such changes build on prior value structures and do not result in complete replacement. Given this understanding of values, we conclude that deliberate efforts to orchestrate value shifts for conservation are unlikely to be effective. Instead, there is an urgent need for research on values with a multilevel and dynamic view that can inform innovative conservation strategies for working within existing value structures. New directions facilitated by a systems approach will enhance understanding of the role values play in shaping conservation challenges and improve management of the human component of conservation.

    Polychorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) such as the non-ortho PCBs (nPCBs) persist in the environment despite international measures to ban their emissions. We determined congener patterns and temporal trends for PCDDs, PCDFs, nPCBs as well as their toxic equivalents (TEQs) in eggs of thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia) and northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) sampled from Prince Leopold Island in the Canadian Arctic between 1975 and 2014. The dominant PCDD congeners were 1,2,3,7,8-PnCDD, 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 1,2,3,6,7,8-HxCDD, and the dominant PCDF congener was 2,3,4,7,8-PnCDF. The nPCB profile was dominated by PCB-126. The TEQ profile in the murre eggs was dominated by nPCB-TEQ whereas in the fulmar eggs, the PCDF-TEQ contribution to ΣTEQ was slightly greater than that of nPCB-TEQ. Concentrations of ΣPCDD, ΣPCDF, ΣnPCB and ΣTEQ declined between 1975 and 2014 in both murre and fulmar eggs. Based on TEQ thresholds in the literature for other species, and taking into account the trend towards declining TEQ levels, it is unlikely that current levels of PCDDs, PCDFs or nPCBs are affecting the reproductive success of thick-billed murres or northern fulmars in the Canadian Arctic.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available The last period of Dino Buzzati's literary production (1960-1971 offers topics and stylistic forms that significantly diverge from the author's persona as prematurely proposed by criticism. Buzzati's prose here includes erotic and sensuous themes, while the author adds some visual elements that become increasingly pivotal in their experimentalism. This twist on contents and forms reaches is apex in some images of bondage proposed in Buzzati's "opere doppie" (Coglitore:  Le storie dipinte, Poema a fumetti e I miracoli di Val Morel. The drawings in the books are frequently explicit, but bondage is never present in the text, where nothing but distant allusions to it can be found.Moving from Gius Gargiulo's work on the topic, this study interrogates this feature of the works going beyond the level of autocensorship. I will propose to read Buzzati's formal choice through the concepts of aesthetism and suspension that Gilles Deleuze recognizes as peculiar of masochism in his study on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch Masochism: Coldness and Cruelty.Buzzati's works are therefore contextualized in literary and cinematographic Italian production between 1965 and 1975, with reference to Gianni Celati's Il chiodo in testa and Liliana Cavani's Il portiere di notte. I therefore compare the aesthetic function of bondage in Buzzati's paintings to the narrative function of the masochistic scene in Pier Vittorio Tondelli's Camere Separate.

    Full Text Available Estimation of fetal weight (EFW is one of the essential measures for labor and delivery. While the use of ultrasonography for EFW is costly, may not work in some centers. So, to make a non- ultrasound method for EFW is important. This study aimed to compare the accuracy of various clinical methods for EFW with the actual birth weight at term pregnancy. A cross-sectional study conducted on 98 pregnant women who were admitted for delivery with gestational age of 37-42 weeks, singleton pregnancy and cephalic presentation in Imam Khomeini hospital, Ahvaz. The fetal weight was anticipated by a midwife through abdominal palpation (using Leopold's maneuvers, measurements of symphysis-fundal height and abdominal girth, and also three formulas. The results were analyzed using the software SPSS version 20 and SATA11. The actual average birth weight was3242.85±43.37 gr. A significant positive correlation was observed between actual birth weight and clinically estimated weight. Kappa coefficient was > 0.8 when all studied methods were compared with the actual weight. This agreement was greater on abdominal palpation and Risanto’s formula, respectively. In the present study, abdominal palpation and Risanto's formula are more accurate for predicting fetal weight. Since these methods are quick, simple and costeffective for EFW so, they can be a useful alternative instead of routine ultrasonography.

    Full Text Available This paper examines the issue of climate change pedagogy and social action in tourism, with particular interest in globally-significant destinations under threat from climate change. Little is understood of the role and responsibility of visitors as key stakeholders in climate change-related action or the potential of such sites to foster environmental learning, as well as social and political action on climate change. Drawing on insights from Aldo Leopold and John Dewey, it is argued here that destinations that are valued intrinsically for their ecological and cultural importance are (or ought to be sites of enjoyment and pedagogy, facilitating experiential learning, care, responsibility and civic action towards their conservation. An exploratory case study of visitors to the Great Barrier Reef offers corroborative insights for such a “reef ethic” as described in this paper, related to visitor experience, learning and action in this World Heritage Area. The results of this paper support the need for a stronger pedagogic role to be adopted by tourism experience providers and site managers to facilitate climate change literacy and responsible action (hence facilitating global environmental citizenship. Their responsibility and that of reef visitors is discussed further.

  14. Modernizing Natural History: Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology in Transition.

    Throughout the twentieth century calls to modernize natural history motivated a range of responses. It was unclear how research in natural history museums would participate in the significant technological and conceptual changes that were occurring in the life sciences. By the 1960s, the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley, was among the few university-based natural history museums that were able to maintain their specimen collections and support active research. The MVZ therefore provides a window to the modernization of natural history. This paper concentrates on the directorial transitions that occurred at the MVZ between 1965 and 1971. During this period, the MVZ had four directors: Alden H. Miller (Director 1940-1965), an ornithologist; Aldo Starker Leopold (Acting Director 1965-1966), a conservationist and wildlife biologist; Oliver P. Pearson (Director 1966-1971), a physiologist and mammalogist; and David B. Wake (Director 1971-1998), a morphologist, developmental biologist, and herpetologist. The paper explores how a diversity of overlapping modernization strategies, including hiring new faculty, building infrastructure to study live animals, establishing new kinds of collections, and building modern laboratories combined to maintain collections at the MVZ's core. The paper examines the tensions between the different modernization strategies to inform an analysis of how and why some changes were institutionalized while others were short-lived. By exploring the modernization of collections-based research, this paper emphasizes the importance of collections in the transformation of the life sciences.

  15. Expressions of ecological identity across the life span of eight environmental exemplars

    Seydel, Jennifer

    While there is a substantial body of literature looking at various aspects of ecological identity and factors that influence it, there has been less work done on how an individual's ecological identity changes with time. Much of that work is limited to short segments of the life span (e.g. the impact of wilderness experiences). This dissertation attempts to address this perceived gap by investigating how the ecological identity of eight environmental exemplars changed during the course of his or her life. What has emerged from this qualitative grounded theory investigation of the lives and works of Charles Darwin, John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Hazel Wolf, Rachel Carson, James Lovelock and E.O. Wilson are five sequential expressions of ecological identity. These 'stages' serve as a framework to explain ecological identity as a developmental process, both fluid and continuous, rather than at) end product. The development of an ecological identity is traced, through the development of five cognitive foundations and their alignment with five emotional foundations that reflect a progression from a sensory interaction and a kinship bond with nature into a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of all aspects of the planet. The findings reveal the evolution of an ecological identity and suggest the importance of looking beyond content knowledge in the nurturing of ecological attitudes, values, and lifestyles.

We discuss the influence of different environmental conditions on the night sky brightness and implications for human vision. We show that the circalunar rhythm of night sky brightness is almost extinguished at our observatory due to light pollution. Additionally, we present spectra of the night sky in Vienna, taken with a 0.8 m telescope. The goal of these spectroscopic measurements was to identify the main types of light sources and the spectral lines which cause the skyglow in Vienna. It turned out that fluorescent lamps are responsible for the strongest lines of the night sky above Vienna (e.g. lines at 546 nm and at 611 nm).

  20. Interactions between red light, abscisic acid, and calcium in gravitropism

    Leopold, A. C.; LaFavre, A. K.

    1989-01-01

    The effect of red light on orthogravitropism of Merit corn (Zea mays L.) roots has been attributed to its effects on the transduction phase of gravitropism (AC Leopold, SH Wettlaufer [1988] Plant Physiol 87:803-805). In an effort to characterize the orthogravitropic transduction system, comparative experiments have been carried out on the effects of red light, calcium, and abscisic acid (ABA). The red light effect can be completely satisfied with added ABA (100 micromolar) or with osmotic shock, which is presumed to increase endogenous ABA. The decay of the red light effect is closely paralleled by the decay of the ABA effect. ABA and exogenous calcium show strong additive effects when applied to either Merit or a line of corn which does not require red light for orthogravitropism. Measurements of the ABA content show marked increases in endogenous ABA in the growing region of the roots after red light. The interpretation is offered that red light or ABA may serve to increase the cytoplasmic concentrations of calcium, and that this may be an integral part of orthogravitropic transduction.

  1. The senescence of oat leaf segments is promoted under simulated microgravity condition on a three-dimensional clinostat.

    Plants have evolved on the earth, indicating the morphology, growth and development, and life cycle of plants are highly influenced by gravity as well as other environmental stimuli. Indeed, simulated microgravity on a clinostat or hypergravity on a centrifuge has recently been reported to change the growth and development of plants (Hoson et al. 1992, 1993, 1995, Rasmussen et al. 1994, Kasahara et al. 1995). Senescence is a final drastic phenomenon in life cycle of plants, which is characterized by the loss of total chlorophyll and protein, and/or the formation of the abscission (Osborne 1973, Thimann 1977, Addicott 1982). Many environmental stimuli as well as the qualitative and quantitative changes of plant hormones have been reported to affect plant senescence. Among those stimuli, light is the most important factor to regulate plant senescence (Leopold 1964). Dark condition promotes leaf senescence due to the decrease in endogenous level of cytokinin and/or the increase in that of abscisic acid or ethylene (Tetley and Thimann 1974, Gepstein and Thimann 1980). However, there are few reports concerning the effect of gravity on leaf senescence. Strenuous effort to learn leaf senescence under microgravity condition has been done using a three-dimensional (3-D) clinostat. In this paper, we report that simulated microgravity condition on a 3-D clinostat promoted the senescence of oat leaf segments in the dark. A possible mechanism of microgravity condition on promoting the senescence is also discussed.

It does however entail problems. Ophthalmic treatments are widely recognized as having a low risk of general complications. A classic example is cataract surgery, considered to be one of the safest and most frequently performed surgical procedures in the world. However, advanced age brings with it risks that should be considered before surgery. Eye operations, as with procedures on other organs, are largely dependent on the quality of surgical tissues. Therefore, the elderly are at increased risk of complications. Improved general health and postoperative follow-up with the use of noninvasive technologies such as optical coherence tomography translate into lower intraoperative risk and better postoperative prognosis. In this review, we discuss the impact of general health on operational prognosis, therapeutic problems, and technical difficulties which a surgeon and anesthesiologist may encounter in the process. We also consider new technology and strategies specifically aimed at treating eye conditions in the elderly. Keywords: eye surgery, eye aging, anesthesiology in ophthalmology, cataract, glaucoma, vitrectomy, age-related macular degeneration

Cloete’s poem “Vroue van Vermeer” (Driepas as the product of idiolectic transformation. The first and most obvious original text or frame is the work of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, with the poems and poetical writings of Martinus Nijhoff as a second frame. The third frame consists of texts from the work of J.H. Leopold. Special attention is given to what happens to the text adapted as a transformation, and in what way the source texts are dealt with in the final text. The visual focus of the poem corresponds with that of the paintings, i.e. the figure of the woman, space as constituent of the figure, and the dominating play with light. Cloete depicts his “Umwertung” of the perceived reality in his poem and at the same time models his own poetical concept that corresponds with the poetical views of Nijhoff. The poetical concept includes views regarding the texts, some views of reality and the so-called objectification theory.

For many, it reflects the common sense notion of being safe rather than sorry, but it has attracted numerous critics. At times, proponents and critics talk at cross purposes, due to the multiplicity of ways the precautionary principle has been formulated. The approach taken here is to examine four general varieties of precaution, relating each to arguments made in various contexts by others. First, I examine the parallel between the precautionary principle and an argument referred to as Pascal's wager. Critics are right to dismiss versions of the precautionary principle that follow the logic of Pascal's wager, because that argument requires assumption of an infinite catastrophe, which is seldom the case in environmental decisions. Second, I explore precaution viewed as an instance of the phenomenon of ambiguity aversion as described by Daniel Ellsberg. Third, I evaluate precautionary perspectives on our duties to future generations, drawing inspiration from the views of Gifford Pinchot. Fourth, I consider the precautionary principle as an instance of Aldo Leopold's notion of intelligent tinkering. Although controversy persists, I find that a legitimate theoretical foundation exists to implement Ellsbergian, Pinchotian and Leopoldean varieties of precaution in environmental decision making. Additionally, I remark on the role of adaptive management and maintaining resilience in ecological and social systems as an approach to implementing the precautionary principle.

  5. PROPOSAL OF A P+L AS A TOOL FOR PROMOTING ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT: A CASE STUDY

    Full Text Available Operate in a less aggressive to the environment, reduce costs and become more competitive. This has been the focus of debates in Environmental Management and has been gaining momentum within organizations. However, do not require large investments and innovative changes in the way companies operate. Simple programs and targeted directly to the production process can bring benefit and cause a major impact on environmental management. Based on this principle and the analysis of the reality of a manufacturing company dedicated to the segment of waterproof clothing, the study created a proposal for a Cleaner Production program focused on environmental education, Reverse Logistics and Ecodesign. The most significant environmental impacts were identified through an array of Leopold and research adapted the generation of the losses occurred with the creation of flowcharts and diagrams of inputs and outputs. Also designed a device capable of assisting in the recycling process and the remains of the proposed indicators for environmental monitoring of the company. The methods used and the results showed serve as important sources in decision making and as a tool to help plan for Environmental Management.

  6. Phytoestrogens and avian reproduction: Exploring the evolution and function of phytoestrogens and possible role of plant compounds in the breeding ecology of wild birds.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rochester, Johanna R; Millam, James R

    2009-11-01

    Phytoestrogens are secondary plant compounds, which can act to mimic estrogen and cause the disruption of estrogenic responses in organisms. Although there is a substantial body of research studying phytoestrogens, including their mechanisms of estrogenic effects, evolution, and detection in biological systems, little is known about their ecological significance. There is evidence, however, that an ecological relationship involving phytoestrogens exists between plants and animals-plants may produce phytoestrogens to reduce fecundity of organisms that eat them. Birds and other vertebrates may also exploit phytoestrogens to regulate their own reproduction-there are well known examples of phytoestrogens inhibiting reproduction in higher vertebrates, including birds. Also, common plant stressors (e.g., high temperature) increase the production of secondary plant compounds, and, as evidence suggests, also induce phytoestrogen biosynthesis. These observations are consistent with the single study ever done on phytoestrogens and reproduction in wild birds [Leopold, A.S., Erwin, M., Oh, J., Browning, B., 1976. Phytoestrogens adverse effects on reproduction in California quail. Science 191, 98-100.], which found that drought stress correlated with increased levels of phytoestrogens in plants, and that increased phytoestrogen levels correlated with decreased young. This review discusses the hypothesis that plants may have an effect on the reproduction of avian species by producing phytoestrogens as a plant defense against herbivory, and that birds may "use" changing levels of phytoestrogens in the vegetation to ensure that food resources will support potential young produced. Evidence from our laboratory and others appear to support this hypothesis.

  7. Infrared and microwave study of angular-radial coupling effects in Ar-HCN

    Microwave and infrared spectra of Ar-HCN have been obtained using an electric-resonance optothermal spectrometer. The microwave measurements extend to higher J the previous results of Leopold et al. and Klots et al., allowing the determination of higher-order centrifugal distortion constants for this quasilinear, highly nonrigid complex. A Padé approximant fit to the microwave data indicates a significant rotation-induced asymptotic increase in the zero-point center-of-mass separation between the Ar and the HCN, above that expected from pure radial distortion. This results from the large coupling between the angular and radial degrees in the intermolecular potential forcing the centrifugal alignment of the HCN. Infrared spectra are reported for the C-H streching fundamental ν1 and the combination band ν1+ν15, where ν5 is the van der Waals bending vibration. The band-origin difference between these two bands gives ν5=7.8 cm-1, in rough agreement with the 10 cm-1 harmonic value predicted from the microwave-determined nuclear quadrupole coupling constant. The complexation-induced red shift of the C-H stretching vibration is 2.69 cm-1 and the vibrational predissociation linewidths Γ are <10 MHz (FWHM). The vibrationally excited complex predissociates before striking the bolometer detector, implying that the predissociation lifetime τ<1 ms.

  8. The origins of radiotherapy: discovery of biological effects of X-rays by Freund in 1897, Kienböck's crucial experiments in 1900, and still it is the dose.

    The discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) was triggered by pursuing an anomalous phenomenon: arousal of fluorescence at a distance from tubes in which cathode rays were elicited, a phenomenon which suggested the existence of a new kind of ray other than cathode rays. The discovery of biological effects of these X-rays by Leopold Freund (1868-1943) was triggered by pursuit of the purportedly useless phenomenon of epilation and dermatitis ensuing from X-ray-diagnostic experiments that others had reported. The crucial experiments performed by Robert Kienböck (1871-1953) entailed the proof that X-ray-dose, not electric phenomena, was the active agent of biological effects ensuing when illuminating the skin using Röntgen tubes. For both the discovery of X-rays and the discovery of their biological effectiveness, priority did not matter, but understanding the physical and medico-biological significance of phenomena that others had ignored as a nuisance. Present discussions about the clinical relevance of improving the dose distribution including protons and other charged particles resemble those around 1900 to a certain degree.

  10. Allergen avoidance: does it work?

    Woodcock, A; Custovic, A

    2000-01-01

    The first recorded example of allergen avoidance in the treatment of allergic disorders dates from the 16th century. The Italian physician Gerolamo Cardano (1501-1576) was invited to Scotland by John Hamilton, Archbishop of St Andrews (and brother of the Regent), to give advice on the treatment of his asthma. Cardano recommended that the Archbishop should get rid of his feather bedding, which was followed by a 'miraculous' remission of otherwise troublesome symptoms. The first controlled attempts to treat asthma by environmental manipulation date to the beginning of 20th century. In 1925, the Leopold brothers treated patients with asthma and other allergic disorders by moving them into a dust free room. Storm van Leeuwen created a 'climate' chamber in The Netherlands in 1927 and demonstrated that asthmatic patients improved when moved from their homes into the chamber. One year later, Dekker observed that measures aimed at reducing the amount of dust in bedrooms had a beneficial effect on asthma symptoms in patients allergic to house dust. Van Leeuwen wrote: 'In our endeavours to find the cause of the attack ... we utilised the known fact that the environment of the asthmatic patient is, as a rule, of primary importance in determining the intensity and frequency of his attacks'. Nowadays, more than ever, it is essential to address the environmental influences on the increasing prevalence of asthma and allergic disorders.

    2001-07-01

    The year 2000 marked the 300th anniversary of the birth of Gerard Van Swieten (1700-1772). He reformed medicine in Vienna, putting new emphasis on diagnosis based on clinical observation in combination with anatomical-pathological findings. This led to the introduction by Leopold Auenbrugger (1722-1809) of percussion in the examination of thoracic organs. However, further work by Joseph Skoda (1805-1881) was required to finally establish this method as a diagnostic tool for pathologies in the thorax. The surgeon Franz Schuh (1804-1865) carried out further basic research in respiratory physiology that cleared the way for the use of percussion and auscultation in thoracic surgery. He is also remembered for introducing experimental surgery in Austria, thus making surgery a science. This article aims to recall these men and their fundamental work behind early paracentesis of the thorax, and especially the first successful pericardiotomy by Schuh 160 years ago, which is also considered a milestone in cardiac surgery.

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available The Serbian uprising of 1804-13, initially a peasant rebellion against abuses of power by local janissaries, turned into a national and social revolution from 1806. During its second phase (late 1806 - early 1807, Serbian insurgents openly proclaimed their demand for independence. Encouraged by their military achievements, the insurgent leaders began to seek wider Balkan support for their struggle against Ottoman domination. Although its political claims were a mixture of modern national and romantic historic rights, the uprising gave hope to all Balkan Christians that the Ottoman defeat was an achievable goal. For the Balkan nations it was a French Revolution adapted to local conditions: the principle of popular sovereignty was opposed to the principle of legitimism; a new peasant-dominated society was created in which, due to the lack of the aristocracy and well-established middle classes, agrarian egalitarianism was combined with the rising aspirations of a modern nation. Its long-term effects on the political and social landscape of the whole region justified the assessment of the eminent German historian Leopold von Ranke who described the uprising, by analogy with the French example, as the Serbian Revolution.

    The Climate Literacy Ambassadors program is a collaborative effort to advance climate literacy led by the Cooperative Institute of Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. With support from NASA, CIMSS is coordinating a three-tiered program to train G6-12 teachers to be Ambassadors of Climate Literacy in their schools and communities. The complete training involves participation at a teacher workshop combined with web-based professional development content around Global and Regional Climate Change. The on-line course utilizes e-learning technology to clarify graphs and concepts from the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Summary for Policy Makers with content intricately linked to the Climate Literacy: The Essential Principles of Climate Science. Educators who take the course for credit can develop lesson plans or opt for a project of their choosing. This session will showcase select lesson plans and projects, ranging from a district-wide action plan that engaged dozens of teachers to Ambassadors volunteering at the Aldo Leopold Climate Change Nature Center to a teacher who tested a GLOBE Student Climate Research Campaign (SCRC) learning project with plans to participate in the SCRC program. Along with sharing successes from the CIMSS Climate Literacy Ambassadors project, we will share lessons learned related to the challenges of sustaining on-line virtual educator communities.

    ``There lies before us, if we choose, continual progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we, instead, choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal as human beings to human beings: Remember your humanity, and forget the rest.'' Days before his death, Albert Einstein joined Bertrand Russell and other notable scientists and philosophers in issuing a statement calling for the abolition of war and for governments to ``find peaceful means for the settlement of all matters of dispute between them." As a first step, they called for the renunciation of nuclear weapons. The initiative led to the establishment of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, which bring together influential scholars and public figures concerned with reducing the danger of armed conflict and seeking cooperative solutions for global problems. The Russell-Einstein Manifesto has had a major impact on the way in which people discuss the issues of peace and war. The paper traces the growing awareness of the meaning of war, ways in which violent conflict can be prevented, particularly in the nuclear age, and the humanitarian imperative for so doing.

    The death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was mysterious from the very first day, and cause of wildest speculation and adventurous assertions. Over the last 100 years, medical science has investigated the physical sufferings and the mysterious death of Mozart with increasing intensity. By means of letters from his father Leopold, his sister "Nannerl", himself and reports from his physicians and contemporaries, we would like to create a medical pathography. The rumour that Mozart was poisoned appeared soon after his early death at the age of 35 on December 5th 1791, and was kept up persistently. Accused were the physician van Swieten, Mozart's freemason's loge and the royal band master Salieri. Mozart, however, died due to chronic kidney disease and ultimately due to uraemia. Once the renal damage has reached a certain point, a minimum of additional stress leads to decompensation. This catastrophe occurs typically within the fourth decade of life. When listening to Mozart's music, we should remember that this apparently happy person was actually a premature adult robbed of his childhood, whose short life was an endless chain of indisposition, over fatigue, misery, concern and illness.

    The early and unexpected death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Salzburg, 1756 - Vienna, 1791) was a mystery from the very first day and the subject of wildest speculations and adventurous assertions. Over the last 100 years, medical science has investigated the physical sufferings and the mysterious death of Mozart with increasing intensity. The aim of this article was to recreate Mozart's pathography relying on the his correspondence with father Leopold and sister Nannerl and on reports from his physicians and contemporaries. The rumour that Mozart was poisoned followed shortly after his death on 5 December 1791, at the age of 35, and has survived to this day. The alleged culprits were his physician van Swieten, Mozart's freemasons lodge, and the Imperial Chapel Master Salieri. Mozart however died of chronic kidney disease and ultimately of uraemia. If kidney damage reaches a critical point, even a minimum additional stress can lead to its failure. This usually occurs in the fourth decade of life. Next time we listen to Mozart, we should remember that this apparently happy person was actually a precocious boy, ripped of his childhood, whose short life was an endless chain of complaints, fatigue, misery, concern, and malady.

    Graduate education in the sciences is - among other things - about learning a foreign language. Proficiency in disciplinary jargon and a strange sort of eloquence in speaking English without being understood by anyone outside one's small 'country of expertise' are among the requirements for entry into academe. Until very recently, the ability to translate one's quirky knowledge back into common language was not part of entraining scientists. Yet, increasingly, the interested public, policy-makers and resource managers, not to speak of science funders, demand that scientists illustrate that their science has societal relevance. Moreover, the urgency of several complex societal and environmental problems puts the onus on scientists to work with experts in other disciplines. This means that the ability to communicate effectively with those outside one's own disciplinary home is rapidly becoming an essential qualification of a 'good' scientist. My own journey from a disciplinary boundary crosser, to hobby communicator, to professional translator of science into English, to alumnae of various media trainings and Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellow, to researcher of the science-practice interface and expert in communication for social change will form the basis of this talk. It weaves together personal experience with scientific insights on why scientists should, why many don't, and how they could interact more effectively with members of a 'different tribe.'

    This paper described hybrid ventilation design strategies and their impact on 3 high performance buildings located in southern Wisconsin. The Hybrid ventilation systems combined occupant controlled natural ventilation with mechanical ventilation systems. Natural ventilation was shown to provide adequate ventilation when appropriately designed. Proper control integration of natural ventilation into hybrid systems was shown to reduce energy consumption in high performance buildings. This paper also described the lessons learned from the 3 buildings. The author served as energy consultant on all three projects and had the responsibility of designing and integrating the natural ventilation systems into the HVAC control strategy. A post occupancy evaluation of building energy performance has provided learning material for architecture students. The 3 buildings included the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center completed in 2003; the Urban Ecology Center completed in 2004; and the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center completed in 2007. This paper included the size, measured energy utilization intensity and percentage of energy supplied by renewable solar power and bio-fuels on site for each building. 6 refs., 2 tabs., 6 figs.

    This paper is an examination of nature journals written by ten American and ten Russian high school students during a cross-cultural exchange that provided experiences in selected national wilderness areas designated by the respective countries. The students participated in a backpacking excursion in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area of Montana in the summer of 1994, and a camping experience in the wilderness areas in the provincial region of Penza, Russia in the summer of 1995. The examination of the journals focuses on the following areas: aesthetic "peak" experiences; spiritual inspiration derived from experiences in nature; attitudes toward the preservation of wildlife; and environmental ethics. The students' attitudes toward the environment is compared using student-identified cultural values of both the Russian and the American students. Also discussed is the viability of the students' reflections as natural history journal-writing, with references to selected natural history authors, including Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold and Anne Dillard. Because the experience focused on wilderness preservation students were invited to speculate about how to develop and reinforce essential attitudes that are respectful of ecology. Conclusions they reached included the necessity to economic security at some level and the notion that direct experience in the environment is essential to developing an attitude that will engender an ethics of caring within their--as well as other--cultural groups.

    The biennial international conference on Extended Defects in Semiconductors started in 1978 with a meeting in Hünfeld, Germany. Subsequent meetings rotated between Poland, France, Great Britain, Germany, Russia and Italy, culminating in EDS2004 in Chernogolovka, EDS2006 in Halle and EDS2008 in Poitiers. EDS2010 was held at the University of Sussex at Brighton, UK from September 19th to 24th. An extension of the tabulation of this history, which first appeared on the EDS2006 website, is given in the attached PDF. It is with sadness that we note one of the founders of the series, Prof. Dr Helmut Alexander, passed away on 3 December 2009 and we were proud to dedicate EDS2010 to his memory. It has become a tradition to make an award in his name, and this year it was made to Ivan Isacov for his poster "Electrical levels of dislocation networks in p- and n-type silicon". A short and warm celebration of Prof. Dr Alexander's life by his friends and colleagues, Prof. Drs Helmut Gottschalk, Eicke Weber and Wolfgang Schröter, is included in this volume. The conference was a forum for the state-of-the-art of investigation and modelling of extended defects in semiconductors. Scientists from universities, research institutes and industry made contributions to a deeper understanding of extended defects, their interaction with point defects and their role in the development of semiconductor technology. The remit of the conference included extended defects, nanostructures, nanoparticles, quantum dots and interfaces within semiconducting materials ranging from narrow to wide band gaps, including graphene-derived materials and diamond. Scientific interests range from defect geometry, electronic structure, dynamics, spectroscopy, microscopy, reactions and chemistry to introduction mechanisms, such as implantation and strained layers and the operation of devices such as integrated circuits, heterostructures, and solar cells. The organisers were confronted with a long period between

    Günther Bauer Günther Bauer. This special issue of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter is devoted to Günther Bauer, who celebrated his 65th birthday in September 2007. Günther has had a long career in condensed matter physics, but is known particularly for his studies of high magnetic field transport and optics in semiconductors and, more recently, for the discovery and x-ray analysis of self-organized 3D quantum dot crystals. However, his work is much broader than this, as indicated by the wide selection of topics which are represented in this special issue. Günther began his scientific career in Vienna, became associate Professor at the University of Ulm after habilitation at the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen, Germany, and then ascended to a full professorship at the Montanuniversität, Leoben, Austria, in 1980. He subsequently moved to the Johannes Kepler Universität, Linz, Austria, in 1990. Apart from his outstanding scientific achievements, Günther is also known for organizing the biannual winterschool on 'New Developments in Solid State Physics' beginning in 1980. Initially, he worked at this task together with Helmut Heinrich (until 2000) and Friedl Kuchar (1984 until now) and subsequently with Wolfgang Jantsch (who followed Helmut Heinrich in 2002). This winterschool was, and remains, very important in identifying new trends in solid state physics, and thus has a number of important proponents in the scientific community. It was at one of the first of these winterschools where the initial reports of the quantum Hall effect were presented, and it has been a meeting place where established experts (including three Nobel laureates) teach, and interact with students and young researchers. It is important to know that Günther's excellent international connections were necessary to maintain the high level of the winterschool over almost 30 years.

    Full Text Available The dossier Exploring the frontiers of Christian spirituality, between Mysticism and Mystiques, passion and compassion unites unit biblical, dogmatic, historical-pastoral approaches in a transdisciplinary perspective. It has been designed by Professor Dr. Paula Blanches (Area of ​​Pastoral Theology , doctoral candidate Marcelo Carneiro da Silva (Area of ​​the Bible and Dr. Helmut Renders (Area history and theology. We believe that the effort on the subject of spirituality, located in the field of religious experience or the praxis of faith, should be the subject of ongoing Protestant research. But this is not yet the case and dossier is an attempt to start a conversation and move forward in this discussion.As part of this, we introduce the distinction between mysticism and mystiques, the common in German research, but little used in Brazilian research or Anglo-Saxon research. We hope this helps to distinguish and that it offers the possibility of imagining Protestantism not predominantly on the base of its classical appreciation of reason, but along the lines of an engaged spirituality, as it appears in the life and work of people like Charles Monroe Sheldon and Washington Gladden, Walter Rauschenbusch and Martin Luther King, Jr., John Frederick Denison Maurice and William Temple, Martin Niemoeller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Elie Gounelle Wilfred Monod, Herman Kutter, Leonard and Clara Ragaz Ragaz-Nadig. The fact that these names probably say little or nothing to the vast majority of the Latin-American Protestants reveals the immensity of the task of discussing a model of Protestant spirituality.The pair "passion and compassion" is less a reference to two opposing concepts than to a number of consecutive readings of Christian spirituality, based on one of the two terms, sometimes with a tendency towards misticism, sometimes with more emphasis on interaction with the world. We mention here, among other aspects, the emphasis on emotion

Nanoparticle-based strategies have been tested in local drug delivery to the inflamed colon. Here, we have investigated the use of the novel avidin-nucleic acid nanoassembly (ANANAS platform as a potential diagnostic carrier in an experimental model of inflammatory bowel diseases. Fluorescent-labeled ANANAS nanoparticles were administered to mice with chemically induced chronic inflammation of the large intestine. Localization of mucosal nanoparticles was assessed in vivo by dual-band confocal laser endomicroscopy. This technique enables characterization of the mucosal microvasculature and crypt architecture at subcellular resolution. Intravascular nanoparticle distribution was observed in the inflamed mucosa but not in healthy controls, demonstrating the utility of the combination of ANANAS and confocal laser endomicroscopy for highlighting intestinal inflammatory conditions.

    To preserve resources, the goal is to use biobased materials containing the maximum possible amount of renewable biomass-based derivatives to secure a sustainable future. Bioplastics, biocomposites, biological fibres and related biomaterials will serve as substitutes for materials and products traditionally made from petroleum resources. To support this need, in 1998, Fraunhofer Institute of Chemistry and Tecnaro GmbH Company (founded by Jurgen Pfitzer and Helmut Nagele in Germany) investigated and developed a new compound made of wood components that can be processed as a thermoplastic material. It is well known that bioplastic and biocomposite materials represent another important group of bio-materials that include plastics reinforced with natural fibers and wood-plastic composites (WPCs). The aim of this research is to identify the behavior of "Liquid Wood" after UV irradiation. The materials used were Arbofill Fichte, Arboblend V2 Nature and Arboform L, V3 Nature. The samples were obtained by injection and the experimental study plan followed the Taguchi method with six input parameters and two levels for each of them. Three samples from each material were tested in an ultraviolet environment using different time of exposure in order to establish the material characteristics. After the irradiation process the material did not turn to yellow, which suggests that the composition of the sample liquid timber inhibitors have stability and the number of α-carbonyl (C = O) groups is sufficiently low. After the graphs analyzing can be inferred relatively similar performance of the samples in the first stage both UV and the VIS, indicating that the activity is almost absent. In UV is clearly observed the peak amplitude (maximum absorbance) at different wavelengths (λ). So, in terms of peak intensity the samples follow the order: Arboform L, V3 Nature; Arbofill Fichte and Arboblend V2 Nature.

Most guidelines that address treatment of dyslipidemia in patients with diabetes consider diabetes a cardiovascular disease (CVD "risk equivalent" and recommend intensive treatment of dyslipidemia for the purpose of CVD prevention. Statins (3-hydroxy 3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase [HMG-CoA reductase] inhibitors are first-line agents in achieving lipid goals as an adjunct to diet and exercise and should be used in most patients. In addition to lipid management and blood pressure control, glycemic control is a basic component in the management of diabetes. Glycemic control is achieved by combining diabetes self-management education, diet and exercise, and, where required, antihyperglycemic agents (OHAs. Persistence and adherence to therapy are critical in achieving recommended treatment goals. However, overall compliance with concomitantly prescribed OHAs and statins is low in patients with type 2 diabetes. Fixed-dose combination (FDC therapies have been shown to improve adherence by reducing pill burden, the complexity of treatment regimen, and, potentially, cost. Based on the available evidence regarding the pharmacokinetics and the efficacy and safety profiles of each component drug, the sitagliptin/simvastatin FDC may provide a rational and well-tolerated approach to achieving better adherence to multiple-drug therapy and improved lipid lowering and glycemic control, with consequent reduction in cardiovascular risk, diabetic microvascular disease, and mortality in diabetic patients for whom treatment with both compounds is appropriate.Keywords: statin, oral antihyperglycemic agent, diabetes, adherence, cardiovascular disease, microvascular disease

    The Protestant Memorial Chapel at Dachau designed by Helmut Striffler in the 1960s is a building with the intention to memorialize and attempt to conciliate the fiercest holocaust in history. The design intended to negate the merciless axial order of the camp. Poetically, it provided "a protective furrow " for the outcast, a place of refuge from the surrounding horrors. The question of memory was at its most acute and painful, and had already produced twenty years of difficult debate. With his downward entrance and bleak concrete structure. Striffler struck just the right note, showing that architecture had lost none of its memorial power.%赫尔穆特·斯特福勒于20世纪60年代设计的达豪新教徒纪念礼拜堂是一座特殊的纪念性建筑,旨在纪念并尝试调和历史上最野蛮的大屠杀.其设计试图消除集中营无情的轴向秩序,诗歌般地为放逐者提供了"一条保护性犁沟",一个逃离周围恐怖环境的避难所.通过下沉式入口和荒凉、冷漠的混凝土结构,斯特福勒准确地触动了恰当的音符,表明建筑学并没有丧失其纪念性力量.

    Matthew Pelowski and his colleagues from the Helmut Leder lab [17] have made a remarkable contribution to the field of art perception by reviewing the extensive and varied literature (+300 references) on all the factors involved, from a coherent, synthetic perspective-The Vienna Integrated Model of top-down and bottom-up processes in Art Perception (VIMAP). VIMAP builds on earlier attempts from the same group to provide a comprehensive theoretical framework, but it is much wider in scope and richer in the number of levels and topics covered under its umbrella. It is particularly strong in its discussion of the different psychological processes that lead to a wide range of possible responses to art-from mundane, superficial reactions to more profound responses characterized as moving, disturbing, and transformative. By including physiological, emotional, and evaluative factors, the model is able to address truly unique, even intimate responses to art such as awe, chills, thrills, and the experience of the sublime. The unique way in which this rich set of possible responses to art is achieved is through a series of five mandatory consecutive processing steps (each with their own typical duration), followed by two conditional additional steps (which take more time). Three processing checks along this cascade lead to three more or less spontaneous outcomes (consuming ones (see their Fig. 1 for an excellent overview). I have no doubt that VIMAP will inspire a whole generation of scientists investigating perception and appreciation of art, testing specific hypotheses derived from this framework for decades to come.

    "Monsieur Le Professor Harry Dorchy is retiring". He has had a brilliant 40 year career since receiving his medical degree from the Free University of Brussels in 1969 and his PhD--entitled " Contribution a l'etude du diabète de l'enfant et de l'adolescent "--in 1981 from the same illustrious university. He had the great fortune to connect with his mentor, Professor Helmut Jean Loeb, and for many years, the two of them cared for young people with diabetes in Brussels and worked closely to establish a remarkable legacy of clinical care, research and innovative thinking about how young children in Belgium--in fact, around the world--, ought to be considered and treated. At the moment of his official retirement, he has an active patient census of 792 patients, 442 under the age of 18 years, at the Queen Fabiola University Children's Hospital in Brussels. As a member of the Hvidoere International Study Group on Childhood Diabetes, Dr Dorchy's patients have the great honor of being the most successful study cohort: those with the lowest (ie. best) levels of hemoglobin A1c. And they do so without excessive hypoglycemia! Dr Dorchy has had 490 publications as an author in his scientific career, 335 as first author. Dr Dorchy's research has complemented his superb work as a clinician : screening for subclinical complications, normal and flexible diet, physical activity, glycemic control and insulin treatment, quality of life, genetics and immunology, specific types of diabetes, etc. Since 1996, with his pediatric diabetologist comrade, Professor Stuart Brink from Boston, he has traveled annually to Romania to help organize, administer and teach at an annual ISPAD-Timisoara Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes Post-Graduate Course with Professor Viorel Serban.

    Until the first quarter of the 20th century, most physicians were more than happy to differentiate congenital heart lesions from rheumatic heart disease, which then was rampant. As early as 1932, Dr Rodolfo Kreutzer, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, was already involved in the study of congenital heart defects. He started off assessing children with a stethoscope and with Einthoven electrocardiography equipment. The cardiac unit at the Buenos Aires Children's Hospital was created in 1936. It established the onset of pediatric cardiology in Argentina and fueled its development in South America. Nearly at the same time, Agustin Castellanos from Cuba also became a pioneer in the assessment of congenital heart disease. He described the clinical applications of intravenous angiocardiography in 1937. Meanwhile in Mexico, Dr Ignacio Chavez founded the National Institute of Cardiology in 1944 in Mexico City. It was the first center in the world to be exclusively devoted to cardiology. From this center, Victor Rubio and Hugo Limon performed the first therapeutic cardiac catheterization in 1953. Meanwhile, Professor Euriclydes Zerbini from Sao Paulo, Brazil, built the largest and most important school of cardiac surgeons in South America. In Santiago, Chile, the Calvo Makenna Hospital was the center where Helmut Jaegger operated on the first infant with extracorporeal circulation in Latin America in 1956. The patient was a 1-month-old baby, with complete transposition of the great arteries, who underwent an Albert procedure. Currently, there are many fully equipped centers all over the region, capable of dealing with most lesions and of providing excellent medical, interventional, and surgical treatment. Outcomes have improved substantially over the last 20 years. These achievements have gone beyond our pioneers' dreams. However, many neonates and young infants die prior to surgery because referral centers are overburdened and have long surgical waiting lists. Clearly, we still

    Full Text Available Il saggio esamina i rapporti tra l’opera di Erich Auerbach e la cultura tedesca del tempo. In particolare tenta di ricostruire la fitta trama di relazioni esistenti, anche a livello personale. Infatti Auerbach a Berlino aveva studiato non solo con i filologi romanzi Erhard Lommatzsch e Max Leopold Wagner, ma anche col filosofo Ernst Troeltsch e con lo storico Friedrich Meinecke. Nella vasta bibliografia sul romanista non mancano ormai i lavori, fin da quello pionieristico di Dante Della Terza, su questo aspetto della sua formazione accademica. Ma essi sono perlopiù circoscritti al periodo giovanile (traduzione della Scienza nuova e della monografia crociana su Vico, lasciando in ombra l’eredità dello storicismo tedesco. A quest’ultimo, sia dal punto di vista terminologico che da quello concettuale, rivolge l’attenzione il presente saggio che cerca di documentare puntualmente l’influenza di Dilthey, genericamente nota e sostenuta da più studiosi, ma senza osservazioni circostanziate. Essa va ben oltre gli anni venti e si può rintracciare anche nell’opera della maturità di Auerbach più famosa, Mimesis. Come pure non meno essenziale sembra il rapporto col Meinecke delle Origini dello storicismo, che si configura però come uno scambio reciproco d’influssi. Più problematico è da accertare sul piano strettamente documentale quello con Cassirer, probabilmente mediato da Panofsky. La contestualizzazione del retroterra culturale di Mimesis è completata da una ricognizione delle prime recensioni dell’opera e, per quanto l’Italia, anche dall’esame del fascicolo di Auerbach conservato nell’archivio Einaudi. The essay considers the relationship between Erich Auerbach and the German culture of the time. In particular, it attempts to reconstruct the dense web of relationships, even on a personal level. Auerbach indeed in Berlin had studied not only with the romance philologists Erhard Lommatzsch and Max Leopold Wagner, but also

    Scope and method of study. The purpose of this study was to reveal the underlying structure of the beliefs of a sample of environmental educators regarding the critical components of a land or environmental ethic. Participants in the study were 30 environmental educators from seven states. All had been trained in one or more of the following national environmental education programs: Project WILD, Project WET, Project Learning Tree, Leopold Education Project, or Leave No Trace. Ages of the participants ranged from 18--63 years. Q methodology directed the study. Each participant completed a Q-sort of 54 statements related to environmental ethics. The data were analyzed using a computer program PQMethod 2.06. This program performed a correlation matrix as input data for factor analysis, and a VARIMAX rotation. Participant demographic data were collected in order to provide a more complete picture of the revealed structure of beliefs. Findings and conclusions. A three-factor solution was revealed from the analysis of the data. These factors represent the groupings of the participants with like beliefs in reference to the critical components of environmental ethics. Factor one was named Nature's Advocates. These individuals believe in equal rights for all parts of the environment. Factor two was named Nature's Stewards because of the revealed belief that humans were to have dominion over the earth given to them by the creator and that natural resources should be used responsibly. Factor three was named Nature's Romantics because of their belief that nature should be preserved for its aesthetic value and because of their naive approach to conservation. The demographic data added detail to the portrait created from the Q-sort data analysis.

    Full Text Available La «crisis ambiental», a causa de la novedad, tiene dos características muy importantes. De un lado está el lenguaje en dos perspectivas. En la apreciación de Gastón Bachelard, el problema de la diversidad de conceptualizaciones y teorizaciones al respecto, y del lado de Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, la carencia de una clara certificación. La “Ética de la Tierra”, escrita por Aldo Leopold fue una primera aproximación a la configuración de un comportamiento ético referido a la problemática ambiental; luego vino la concepción bioética, que por carencia de su certificación, no logró una fundamentación operacional ni teórica adecuada. En este sentido se hace necesario clarificar muy bien el lenguaje para tener una expresión definida sobre esa crisis ambiental, la cual se ubica dentro de una temática que desborda el interés científico y se constituye en una preocupación política a todos los niveles. La otra característica es ser una temática claramente transdisciplinaria, lo que hace necesario avanzar sobre una buena fundamentación operacional y teórica para evitar discusiones sin un objeto claro de trabajo que conduzca a referentes distintos e indistinguibles.

    Many papers discuss the connection between different river parameters. Leopold and Wolman (1957) analyzed how the river pattern changes with the changing slope and water discharge. Schumm and Khan (1972) demonstrated the sinuosity variations as a function of the slope. Timár (2003) merged these planar diagrams and the result was a pseudo-3D diagram, suggesting that the sinuosity changes depending on the slope, at a given discharge. My work aims to make a real 3D diagram, using the rivers of the Pannonian Basin. Viczián (1905) gave the slope and water discharge values for the rivers in the Pannonian Basin, except the area of the Great and Little Hungarian Plain. The meandering rivers of this area also were digitized, using the map sheets of the Second Military Survey of the Habsburg Empire (the survey of these maps was made in the second half of the 19th century), and their sinuosity was calculated. The first 3D-graph was made using 13 rivers (Ondava, Laborec, Uh Latorica, Drava, Tisza, Hron, Sajó/Slaná, Váh, Maros/Mures, Olt, Szamos/Somes and Kis-Szamos/Somesul-Mic rivers) and this show the expected results. The rivers of the Hungarian Plains are also processing to complete the graph with higher discharge and lower slope data. The research is made in the frame of project OTKA-NK83400 (SourceSink Hungary). The European Union and the European Social Fund also have provided financial support to the project under the grant agreement no. TÁMOP 4.2.1./B-09/1/KMR-2010-0003.

  8. Recent Photocatalytic Applications for Air Purification in Belgium

    Full Text Available Photocatalytic concrete constitutes a promising technique to reduce a number of air contaminants such as NOx and VOC’s, especially at sites with a high level of pollution: highly trafficked canyon streets, road tunnels, the urban environment, etc. Ideally, the photocatalyst, titanium dioxide, is introduced in the top layer of the concrete pavement for best results. In addition, the combination of TiO2 with cement-based products offers some synergistic advantages, as the reaction products can be adsorbed at the surface and subsequently be washed away by rain. A first application has been studied by the Belgian Road Research Center (BRRC on the side roads of a main entrance axis in Antwerp with the installation of 10.000 m² of photocatalytic concrete paving blocks. For now however, the translation of laboratory testing towards results in situ remains critical of demonstrating the effectiveness in large scale applications. Moreover, the durability of the air cleaning characteristic with time remains challenging for application in concrete roads. From this perspective, several new trial applications have been initiated in Belgium in recent years to assess the “real life” behavior, including a field site set up in the Leopold II tunnel of Brussels and the construction of new photocatalytic pavements on industrial zones in the cities of Wijnegem and Lier (province of Antwerp. This paper first gives a short overview of the photocatalytic principle applied in concrete, to continue with some main results of the laboratory research recognizing the important parameters that come into play. In addition, some of the methods and results, obtained for the existing application in Antwerp (2005 and during the implementation of the new realizations in Wijnegem and Lier (2010–2012 and in Brussels (2011–2013, will be presented.

    The empress and queen Maria Theresa Habsburg-Lorraine (May 13th, 1917-November 29th, 1780) bore sixteen children in the marriage with the emperor Franz I Stepha and was famous as "mother-in-law of Europe". Her brother Leopold died immediately after he was born, her sister Amalia died in the cradle and Maria Ana died of perinatal complications at the birth of a dead infant in 1744. The famous hereditary facial dysmorphia of the "Hasburg jawe" wasn't noticed in Maria Theresa's surviving children. In October of 1738, after giving birth to her daughter Ana, a manual lysis of the placenta was performed due to the retained placenta and postpartal bleeding. In 1741 her daughter Carolina died, and in 1767 her daughter Josepha died of small pox. Her daughter Elizabeth remained deformed by the pock marks, and Maria Christina got a puerperal sepsis, but surprisingly, didn't die. Maria Antoinette ended under a guillotine in France, along with her husband Luis XVI. Maria Theresa's father, Karl VI died of the cholecystopankreatitis and peritonitis, and her husband and co-ruler most probably died of acute coronary incident in August 18th, 1765. After her husband's death she started suffering from depression with steady necrophile obsessions. Maria Theresa suffered from a chronical obstructional pulmonary disease (asthma), rehumatic syndromes, hypertension and anxiodepressive syndromes. In 1767 she had small pox. In November 11th 1780 she caught a cold which grew into a pneumonia with high fever. She died of cardiopulmonal dedompensation preceded by pneumonia and asthma.

    Historically, quantification with laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) has been limited to the ability to matrix match both standards and samples. This can prove problematic when a particular matrix matched standard is not readily available. Liquid standard addition has been shown1-4 as an alternative technique for quantification that does not require matrix matching; however, further fundamental study is needed especially considering the different mass flow rates delivered to the plasma from traditional pneumatic nebulizers and laser ablation itself. In this work, the authors combine a specialized low-flow desolvating nebulizer system with LA-ICP-MS. This nebulizer system efficiently removes water vapour, thereby significantly reducing oxide based mass spectral interferences. For the instrument setup, the output from the laser is combined with the dried aerosol from the nebulizer system prior to entering the ICP-MS source. By using two sources of dry aerosol, mixing efficiency is improved whilst minimising plasma power lost to solvent (water vapour) processing. The method was applied to both USGS Green River Shale and an Arkansas Womble Shale. The results showed a number of elements that were correctly quantified using the technique as compared to reference values. References Gunther, D., Cousin, H., Magyar, B., Leopold, I., J. Anal. Atom.

  14. Evaluating landscape health: Integrating societal goals and biophysical process

    Evaluating landscape change requires the integration of the social and natural sciences. The social sciences contribute to articulating societal values that govern landscape change, while the natural sciences contribute to understanding the biophysical processes that are influenced by human activity and result in ecological change. Building upon Aldo Leopold's criteria for landscape health, the roles of societal values and biophysical processes in shaping the landscape are explored. A framework is developed for indicators of landscape health and integrity. Indicators of integrity are useful in measuring biological condition relative to the condition in landscapes largely unaffected by human activity, while indicators of health are useful in evaluating changes in highly modified landscapes. Integrating societal goals and biophysical processes requires identification of ecological services to be sustained within a given landscape. It also requires the proper choice of temporal and spatial scales. Societal values are based upon inter-generational concerns at regional scales (e.g. soil and ground water quality). Assessing the health and integrity of the environment at the landscape scale over a period of decades best integrates societal values with underlying biophysical processes. These principles are illustrated in two contrasting case studies: (1) the South Platte River study demonstrates the role of complex biophysical processes acting at a distance; and (2) the Kissimmee River study illustrates the critical importance of social, cultural and economic concerns in the design of remedial action plans. In both studies, however, interactions between the social and the biophysical governed the landscape outcomes. The legacy of evolution and the legacy of culture requires integration for the purpose of effectively coping with environmental change.

    The Portable High-speed Occultation Telescope (PHOT) group observed two occultations by Pluto in 2010. The first, of a I=9.3 magnitudue star on 2010 Feb 14, was organized by the Meudon occultation group, with the PHOT group as collaborators. For this bright but low-elevation event, we deployed to three sites in Europe: Obs. Haute Provence, France (0.8-m; L. Young, H. Reitsema), Leopold Figl, Austria (1.5-m; E. Young), and Apline Astrovillage, Lu, Switzerland (0.36-m; C. Olkin, L. Wasserman). We obtained a lightcurve at Lu under clear conditions, which will be combined with two other lightcurves from the Meudon group, from Sisteron and Pic du Midi, France. We observed the second Pluto occultation, of a I=13.2 star on 2010 July 4 UT, from four sites in South Africa: with our portable telescope near Upington (0.36-m; M. Buie, L. Wasserman), the Boyden telescope in Bloemfontein (1.5-m; L. Young, M. Brucker), the Innes telescope in Johannesburg (0.67-m; T. Sepersky, B. Fraser), and the telescope at Aloe Ridge north of Johannesburg (0.62-m; R. Howell, K. Lonergan, A. Richter). Upington was cloudy, Boyden had heavy scattered clouds, and Innes suffered from haze and telescope mechanical problems. A lightcurve was obtained from Aloe Ridge under clear conditions. Data was also obtained by Karl-Ludwig Bath & Thomas Sauer at Hakos, Namibia and by Berto Monard of ASSA near Pretoria, South Africa. The length of the Aloe Ridge chord suggests it is nearly central. These observations give us four contiguous years in which we observed one or more Pluto occultations, providing constraints on the seasonal evolution of Pluto's atmosphere. Thanks are due to Marcelo Assafin and Jim Elliot for sharing predictions prior to the July event. This work was supported, in part, by NASA PAST NNX08A062G.

    Full Text Available In the southern escarpment of the Serra da Mantiqueira, northeast geographic divider between the State of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, there was an environmental accident caused by the disruption of an adductor whose purpose is to lead the water from a reservoir located at an altitude of 1820 m to the machine house where there is an electric generator located at 750 m.  This accident resulted in the formation of a scar on the hillside forest, with removal of soil and vegetation. To reverse the erosion processes, a methodology was developed consisting of the use of four barriers (numbered I to IV formed by seedlings of Bambusa mutiplex (Lour., whose purpose was to divert the water runoff in order to provide the regeneration of native vegetation. Stalks of bamboo intercropped with Bambusa multiplex were used to contain debris in two gullies formed by erosion. The development of vegetation was monitored for 18 months and evaluated by the application of a Leopold Matrix composed of 5 points, which are: erosion, regeneration of vegetation, success of bamboo planting, installed conservation structures and functionality. The purpose of the matrix was to demonstrate the effectiveness of interventions using bamboo. The result of the classification matrix enabled the quantitative and qualitative classification of the interventions, resulting in five levels, where the barriers I, II and IV were considered to be of very high efficiency, and barrier III was considered to be of high efficiency. The contention of the gully was considered to be of medium to very high efficiency.

    The complexity and scale of climate change-related challenges requires more than one strategy to share meaningful information with public audiences. This presentation will discuss a few initiatives to engage the public originating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. First, a local partnership between the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) and the Aldo Leopold Nature Center (ALNC), an informal learning center with a new climate change "classroom" which recently acquired a Science on a Sphere (SOS) exhibit. Second, an informal education project funded by the NOAA Office of Education coordinated by CIMSS in partnership with the national SOS Network with the goal of helping museum docents share meaningful interpretation of real-time weather and climate data. CIMSS staff has been conducting weather and climate discussions on a Magic Planet display for several years. This "mini-SOS" is powered by a solar panel on the roof, modeling the essential Sun-Earth connection and the first principle of climate literacy. However, the convenient proximity of CIMSS and ALNC provides a perfect opportunity to test "SOS-scale" talking points posted on a weekly docent blog to the benefit of the entire SOS Network. Two other Wisconsin projects of note include the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts, a partnership between the University and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and a pilot project between CIMSS and NOAA's National Weather Service to engage storm spotters in climate mitigation and stewardship. Ideally, the synergistic benefits and lessons learned from these collaborations can inform similar efforts in order to galvanize meaningful responses to climate change.

There have been intense disputes as to whether holism is "eco-fascism" and "misanthropy" in the field of environmental ethics. Although individualists exaggerate the magnitude of the problem, they do reveal some problems of "land ethic". Faced with the problems, the holism followers have been endeavoring to solve them. As a matter of fact, what should all holists strive for is an environmental holism which takes the individual interests into consideration

    Activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) subunit Raptor induces cell growth and is a downstream target of Akt. Elevated levels of aldosterone activate Akt, and, in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), correlate with pulmonary arteriole thickening, which suggests that mTORC1 regulation by aldosterone may mediate adverse pulmonary vascular remodeling. We hypothesized that aldosterone-Raptor signaling induces abnormal pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell (PASMC) survival patterns to promote PAH. Remodeled pulmonary arterioles from SU-5416/hypoxia-PAH rats and monocrotaline-PAH rats with hyperaldosteronism expressed increased levels of the Raptor target, p70S6K, which provided a basis for investigating aldosterone-Raptor signaling in human PASMCs. Aldosterone (10(-9) to 10(-7) M) increased Akt/mTOR/Raptor to activate p70S6K and increase proliferation, viability, and apoptosis resistance in PASMCs. In PASMCs transfected with Raptor-small interfering RNA or treated with spironolactone/eplerenone, aldosterone or pulmonary arterial plasma from patients with PAH failed to increase p70S6K activation or to induce cell survival in vitro Optimal inhibition of pulmonary arteriole Raptor was achieved by treatment with Staramine-monomethoxy polyethylene glycol that was formulated with Raptor-small interfering RNA plus spironolactone in vivo, which decreased arteriole muscularization and pulmonary hypertension in 2 experimental animal models of PAH in vivo Up-regulation of mTORC1 by aldosterone is a critical pathobiologic mechanism that controls PASMC survival to promote hypertrophic vascular remodeling and PAH.-Aghamohammadzadeh, R., Zhang, Y.-Y., Stephens, T.
