    Full Text Available Background: Hydatidiform mole is a relatively common gynecological problem which could present like spontaneous abortion, one of the commonest gynecological emergencies. It has the propensity to become malignant but can easily be identified and treated. The aim of this study was to determine the demographics, clinical features, treatment options and outcome of patients with hydatidiform mole in our environment. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective review of all the cases of hydatidiform mole seen at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH, Jos, Nigeria over a 5-year period. Results: There were 34 cases of hydatidiform mole giving an incidence of 1 in 357 deliveries. However only 25 case notes were available for analysis and the mean age of patients was 28±3 years. Vaginal bleeding (92%, honeycomb appearance on ultrasound scan (84%, and passage of vesicles (60% were the most common clinical findings while suction curettage was the mode of treatment for all the patients in this study. Twenty-eight percent of cases were confirmed by histology. No patient came for follow-up after the third month of diagnosis. Twenty percent of the patients booked for antenatal care within 9 months of diagnosis while 12% of patients presented as gynecological emergencies with features of malignant disease within six months of diagnosis. Conclusion: Hydatidiform mole is common in Jos, North Central Nigeria, and presents most commonly with vaginal bleeding with over 10% becoming malignant. Hence all patients who present with vaginal bleeding should be screened for HM. None of the patients completed the recommended duration of follow-up and only about ¼ had histology reports. Concerted efforts need to be made to address the challenges of patients adhering to recommended follow-up protocols and having to pay first before investigations are done.

    Full Text Available ἀe performance of road network depends on its topological characteristics which help to deḀne its connectiv-ity. ἀis paper analyses the topological characteristic of Jos city road network and its bearing on traᴀc ᰀow situations. Simple graph theoretic measures oᬀered the framework on which the problem was approached. ἀe study requires the abstraction and analysis of the topological structure by selection of certain variables relating to the road connectivity. ἀese include the Beta, Gamma and Alpha index, the PI, Cyclomatic number, and the spread and density of the network. Information on these variables was obtained through the use of vector data model to abstract the road network graph from the Quick-bird satellite imagery used for the study. Results of the Ḁndings reveal that, the road network of Jos City Centre as a whole have achieved an average level of connectivity, showing Beta index values of 1.4049, Gamma index value of 47.06%, Alpha index Value of 20.63%; and a pi and cyclomatic number of 24.74 and 165 respectively, the spread of the network is moderate exhibiting a value of 23, even though some areas have more concentration of roads than the others; and has a road density of 52 links per km2. Based on these Ḁndings, the need for construction of new roads is imperative so as to improve the eᴀciency of connectivity and accessibility within the city.

The locals cannot afford the fees for education at the secondary level. One of the main supporters of the fund was Jos Kuipers. His words to me were, 'if you have any unfilled sponsorships or if people have left without finishing their sponsorships, then call on me and I'll fill the gap.'

  3. New data on the Volcanic Tuff from Petrestii de Jos (Cluj District

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2001-04-01

    Full Text Available The present study was carried out on the cineritic interlayers from Petreştii de Jos (closed quarry from Indolului Valley, in order to present their detailed mineralogical-petrographical features. Previous work already noticed the similarity of this tuff level with Dej Tuff Complex in other areas. The studied outcrop consists of a compact volcanic tuff interlayered with marls and tuffaceous clays. The analytical investigations: chemical analyses, X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy and electron microscopy reveal the nature of the diagenetic transformations dominated by zeolitization. Besides clinoptilolite, which is the typical zeolite for Dej Tuff from the Transylvanian Depression, our investigation evidenced also the presence of phillipsite. The process was stepwise: during the primary, syngenetic stage K-clinoptilolite formed, while during the late epigenetic stage Ca-phillipsite crystallized; on behalf of the latter one, Ca-clinoptilolite was also generated. It is worth to mention that the highest amounts of zeolites are to be found in the basal horizon, while this amount decreases in the interlayers associated with the marly-clayey levels. From genetic point of view, the lower horizon in the outcrop represents a primary fall-out tuff. The thin interlayers within the upper horizons are resedimented tuffs. The tuff from Petreştii de Jos represents a cheap raw material located in the neighborhood of the industrial area of Turda town. For using it, only a more detailed research and the removal of the vegetal and soil layer on the top would be necessary.

  12. José Barzelatto lecture: Vision on unsafe abortion.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Faúndes, Anibal

    2010-04-01

    José Barzelatto first distinguished himself as a leader with a vision in his years as a medical student. Later, principally as Director of the Reproductive Health Program at the World Health Organization and of the Ford Foundation program for women's sexual and reproductive rights, he contributed immensely toward the recognition of women's sexual and reproductive rights as part of their basic human rights. José Barzelatto's vision on abortion reflects his drive to promote social justice and respect individual rights, respect diversity, and promote a social consensus for a peaceful society. He believed that the fetus has moral value and did not accept abortion as a method of fertility control, but understood that abortion is a social phenomenon that cannot be changed with legal or moral condemnation. He accepted that condemning women who abort does not prevent abortion, is unfair, and causes great human suffering at a high social cost. José proposed nine points to form the basis for an overlapping consensus on abortion, on which to base a practical consensus that would allow societies to reduce the number of abortions and minimize their consequences. If we can agree on all or most of those points we would achieve the common objectives of: fewer women confronting the dilemma of how to deal with an unwanted pregnancy; fewer induced abortions; and fewer women suffering the consequences of unsafe abortion.

  13. Matías Maestro, José del Pozo y el arte en Lima a inicios del siglo XIX

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ricardo Kusunoki Rodríguez

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available El artículo es un acercamiento al arte limeño de inicios del siglo XIX, centrado en las figuras de Matías Maestro y José del Pozo. Se intenta ir más allá de definir este período como neoclasicismo, al centrar el análisis en las motivaciones de los comitentes y artistas. Para ello se ha recurrido a distintos tipos de documentos, sean cuentas de cofradías, sermones o periódicos, contextualizando así las piezas artísticas. En una sociedad corporativa y monárquica, el impacto de la Ilustración y el retorno a los modelos grecolatinos no generó un neoclasicismo en el sentido estricto, sino, como en toda manifestación periférica, la superposición de estratos estilísticos. El “buen gusto” impuesto por la labor de Matías Maestro y José del Pozo significó en realidad la subordinación de las manifestaciones artísticas locales a las de la Metrópoli, al imponerse dos artistas españoles y sin formación local en el gusto oficial y de élite.

    Full Text Available Contemporary libraries of the twenty-first century are characterized by a marked fluctuation of roles and functions commonly ascribed to them. Librarians are expected to be capable of anticipating them and addressing them appropriately in order to satisfy the requirements set up by users. This article is an attempt to discuss the most important changes that have hitherto been done and to indicate those areas of the activity of research, academic, public and, to a lesser degree, school libraries in which those changes will be particularly pronounced. Anticipated roles and tasks within the management and access to resources, building up own electronic resources and their processing, library space, embarking on tasks hitherto not regarded as strictly ''library" tasks as well as the most important changes in the author's view such as those to be introduced in user services, in-service trainings, education and propagation of knowledge are discussed in the article. The author believes that the new functions, on par with those already existing, should be subjected to actual users, but also to potential ones, even deeper than before. This should effect in creating the library environment as a ''meeting place", some kind of a social space to perform entirely new functions superimposed onto traditional ones in the library information. The new functions will include performing new cultural, educational, social, artistic and communal tasks carried out with a co-operation with other libraries, scientific, educational and cultural instructions. Additionally, the problem of changes in work force management, so vital in the supposed and anticipated transformation of the library and its functions, is evaluated and discussed.

Livestock diseases like scrapie form huddles in livestock economics of countries. For 8 months we surveyed for scrapie targeting emergency/casualty slaughter sheep and goats in Jos, Nigeria. We clinically examined 510 sheep and 608 goats of local breeds, aged from 12 months to 5 years. In total 31 (5.10% goats and no sheep were clinically suspicious for scrapie. Caudal brainstem tissues of suspect animals collected postmortem were analyzed for the disease specific form of the prion protein, PrPSc, using Bio-Rad’s TeSeE ELISA rapid test kit. No sample was positive for scrapie. Fluorescent antibody test for rabies and H&E staining on samples were carried out for differential diagnosis. These showed no pathological lesions indicative for neurological disease. While our findings do not exclude the presence of scrapie in Jos, we demonstrate that targeted sampling of small ruminants for neuroinfectious disease is feasible in developing countries, pointing to the possibility of implementing such a monitoring scheme in Nigeria to prevent economic losses in small ruminant livestock as scrapie caveats from endemic countries have shown.

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available This work presents an analysis of the intellectual and political legacy of José Revueltas in an attempt to properly assess the relevance of his thought and work. This can be elucidated through his literary and political work as an heterodox communist, who always placed words before weapons, although he toyed with the idea of violence as the midwife of History and defended its revolutionary role. His time in prison as well as his differences with the Soviet Union and the Mexican Communist Party influenced his marxist outlook and provided him with a different set of answers to the questions posed by the failures of the October Revolution. Cognitive democracy, a concept developed by Revueltas and alienation theory (in which capitalist society affects not only the working classes but every manifestation of human life constitute his legacy. His life is also a cautionary tale about religious commitment and politics.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La figura de José Luis Hidalgo (Torres, 1919-Madrid, 1947, poeta y pintor, ha de tomar un nuevo relieve como representante de una generación de autores montañeses que surgió en torno a los años cuarenta. Destaca en su breve obra, al igual que su corta pero intensa vida, la extrema sensibilidad de su poesía en el uso de imágenes, metáforas que acercan sus versos hacia el terreno de lo plástico y sensorial. Las preocupaciones son de profunda raigambre existencialista, al ser nuestro poeta un joven lector de pensadores como Nietzsche, Schopenhauer o Unamuno; es con este último con el que guarda una ineludible afinidad de ideas. La búsqueda que emprende José Luis Hidalgo hacia la verdad se sitúa dentro de una metafísica trascendente y una vertiente religiosa muy significativa, en un diálogo sincero y directo con Dios. Contrasta la sencillez formal de su poesía con el complejo sistema simbólico de elementos naturales, espacios... en los que se mueve dentro del marco fluctuante entre la tradición y la vanguardia; encontramos resonancias que nos llevan desde el romanticismo becqueriano, pasando por el simbolismo, hasta los movimientos vanguardistas —sobre todo el surrealismo— y el grupo poético del 27. La obra de Los muertos supone un momento culmen del dilatado periodo de posguerra.ABSTRACT: The literary figure of José Luis Hidalgo (Torres, 1919-Madrid, 1947, both a poet and a painter, achieves renown once more as a representative of a generation of writers from Cantabria (in the north of Spain which came to light around the 1940's. His work, as brief as his short but intense life, is remarkable for the great feeling of his poetry in the use of imagery and metaphors, which draw his verse near the domain of the vivid and sensorial. His concerns have deep existentialist roots; as a young man the poet was a devoted reader of great thinkers such as Nietzsche, Schopenhauer or Unamuno; it is the latter with whom he has an

O trabalho investiga a figura da criança morta em dois sentidos principais: como uma ferida narcisística na subjetividade do escritor e como uma interrupção da teleologia linear da história. Nesses autores, também investiga a emergência de um horizonte de representações sobre a infância com importantes implicações biopolíticas, estéticas e filosóficas.

    Full Text Available Background: Abdominal injuries contribute significantly to battlefield trauma morbidity and mortality. This study sought to determine the incidence, demographics, clinical features, spectrum, severity, management, and outcome of abdominal trauma during a civilian conflict. Materials and Methods: A prospective analysis of patients treated for abdominal trauma during the Jos civil crises between December 2010 and May 2012 at the Jos University Teaching Hospital. Results: A total of 109 victims of communal conflicts with abdominal injuries were managed during the study period with 89 (81.7% males and 20 (18.3% females representing about 12.2% of the total 897 combat related injuries. The peak age incidence was between 21 and 40 years (range: 3–71 years. The most frequently injured intra-abdominal organs were the small intestine 69 (63.3%, colon 48 (44%, and liver 41 (37.6%. Forty-four (40.4% patients had extra-abdominal injuries involving the chest in 17 (15.6%, musculoskeletal 12 (11%, and the head in 9 (8.3%. The most prevalent weapon injuries were gunshot 76 (69.7%, explosives 12 (11%, stab injuries 11 (10.1%, and blunt abdominal trauma 10 (9.2%. The injury severity score varied from 8 to 52 (mean: 20.8 with a fatality rate of 11 (10.1% and morbidity rate of 29 (26.6%. Presence of irreversible shock, 3 or more injured intra-abdominal organs, severe head injuries, and delayed presentation were the main factors associated with mortality. Conclusion: Abdominal trauma is major life-threatening injuries during conflicts. Substantial mortality occurred with loss of nearly one in every 10 hospitalized victims despite aggressive emergency room resuscitation. The resources expenditure, propensity for death and expediency of timing reinforce the need for early access to the wounded in a concerted trauma care systems.

The comparative results focus on Francisco Resende’s technique of execution, the materials used in the paint layers and on the support of the three works which are being studied. Although executed in the same period, they show different conservation problems - namely delamination and blistering of the paint layers, and also corrosion of the support.

    The IR Hot Wave{trademark} furnace is a breakthrough heat treatment system for manufacturing metal components. Near-infrared (IR) radiant energy combines with IR convective heating for heat treating. Heat treatment is an essential process in the manufacture of most components. The controlled heating and cooling of a metal or metal alloy alters its physical, mechanical, and sometimes chemical properties without changing the object's shape. The IR Hot Wave{trademark} furnace offers the simplest, quickest, most efficient, and cost-effective heat treatment option for metals and metal alloys. Compared with other heat treatment alternatives, the IR Hot Wave{trademark} system: (1) is 3 to 15 times faster; (2) is 2 to 3 times more energy efficient; (3) is 20% to 50% more cost-effective; (4) has a {+-}1 C thermal profile compared to a {+-}10 C thermal profile for conventional gas furnaces; and (5) has a 25% to 50% smaller footprint.

    We studied retrospectively 22 children who were managed for splenic injuries at Jos University Teaching Hospital between September 1988 and October 1995. Sixteen were males and six were females (M:F = 2.7:1) with their ages between five and 15 years and a mean of 10.3 years. Eleven were knocked down by vehicles while crossing the freeway, playing or hawking goods; seven fell from slippery mango trees after a downpour of rain while two were passengers in a vehicle that was involved in a head-on collision and another two were kicked in the abdomen as a result of assault. All had surgery. Four sustained Uphadhyaya and Simpson's Type 1 injuries while six sustained Type IV injuries. Twelve had total splenectomy, seven had total splenectomy with heterotopic autotransplantation of splenic wafers while three had splenorrhaphy augmented with omentoplasty. An average of 1.5 units of blood per patient were transfused. There was only one death. Considering that the majority (18) of these children sustained their splenic injuries while crossing the freeway (playing or hawking goods) and from falls from mango trees after the rains, we believe that there are preventable causes. Mandatory primary and junior secondary school education as well as legislature against child labour will help keep these children safe out of harm's way and thus drastically reduce the incidence of childhood splenic injuries in our environment.

    En lamentable accidente de tránsito falleció en días pasados en Bogotá el doctor José Francisco Socarrás.

    El profesor Socarrás, como habitualmente se le conocía, fue una de las figuras médicas más brillantes del siglo en Colombia: magnífico escritor, excelente psiquiatra e insigne educador acumuló en el curso de su meritoria existencia una vasta cultura que puso al servicio de sus semejantes, en su consultorio particular, en las aulas universitarias y académicas, en sus escritos periodísticos y en el intercambio de ideas con los que tuvimos el honor de ser sus amigos.

    Nació Socarrás en Valledupar en 1906 y se graduó de médico en la Universidad Nacional en 1930 con una tesis novedosa para la época sobre el Psicoanálisis, que lo convirtió en el iniciador de los estudios sobre esa disciplina en nuestro País. Fue su presidente de tesis el doctor Maximiliano Rueda Galvis, formado en la escuela de Psiquiatría de Kraepelin y no ciertamente afecto a las teorías psiconalíticas freudinas. Rueda Galvis había establecido la cátedra de psiquiatría de la Universidad Nacional hacia 1925, que había sido excluida anteriomente de las disciplinas médicas con la tesis absurda de la Regeneración de que podía conducir al ateísmo.

    La formación Psiquiátrica de José Francisco Socarrás, iniciada con Rueda Galvis, se vio influida en sus comienzos por las ideas de Paul Ribot, quien reflejó en su época las vicisitudes de la nueva psicología que intentaba lograr una posición adecuada en el mundo científico particularmente en sus relaciones con dos vecinos incómodos, la fisiología y la filosofía. Por ello estudió Socarrás con ahínco la psicología de los sentimientos y las enfermedades de la voluntad.

    Se impregnó luego de las ideas del insigne psicólogo norteamericano William James, el padre del pragmatismo, quien sostenía en su estudio sobre la mente, que la emoción es tan sólo la toma de

This work has been considered to be a modernist book of youth, inside a Modernism «a la andaluza,» conceiving Modernism as a syncretic «movement», hybrid from different trends, from Parnasianism to Symbolism, suffering from the decadentism of the fin de siècle’s fits. In a general sense, however, Garba can be seen as a work of its times in its European context, a work proper to a historical and social moment of crisis in the traditional values and changes in time perceptions. Without forgetting about its Spanish context, this short analysis has the aim of highlighting the unity of the work as a whole, a unity which is based on a cyclical structure close to the time perception of Nature —against mechanized time—, trying to break free from that alienated feeling which the industrialization of the beginning of the century conveys. Therefore, Garba may be seen as a work which reflects all the concerns about time perception which other contemporary authors were suffering far beyond the Spanish frontiers.En 1913, sintiendo el espíritu de incomodidad europea por la cercanía de la explosión de la Gran Guerra, aparece publicada bajo el título de Garba, la primera colección/libro de poemas de José Moreno Villa, poeta y pintor que se mueve entre Modernismo y vanguardias de comienzos del siglo XX en las letras españolas. Garba ha sido considerada como una obra modernista de juventud, dentro de un propio «Modernismo a la andaluza», entendiendo modernismo como un «movimiento» sincrético, híbrido de diferentes tendencias, desde el parnasianismo al simbolismo, pasando por el decadentismo del mal de fin de siglo

    Full Text Available Con Amati cani ci discostiamo per una volta dalle pubblicazioni a carattere scientifico, per dare il giusto risalto ad un’interessante raccolta di narrativa che esplora il rapporto tra l'uomo e il suo miglior amico. José Jorge Latria, noto soprattutto per essere un esponente di spicco della canzone politica portoghese e per le sue opere poetiche, teatrali e di letteratura per ragazzi, nello scrivere questo libro compie un vero e proprio atto d’amore verso i cani, con il preciso intento di costringere i lettori ad eliminare dal proprio vocabolario il gratuito modo di dire ‘mondo cane’. L’Autore delinea brevi ritratti di cani che, da Argo in poi, hanno accompagnato da amici veri i loro celebri padroni nella buona e nella cattiva sorte: racconta cioè la storia di quei cani che non sono sprofondati nella voragine dell’oblio perchè i loro padroni hanno raggiunto la celebrità nel mondo della letteratura, della politica, del cinema, delle scienze o della musica. Con a fianco un amico fedele come un cane, la vita ha avuto un sapore diverso per Ernest Hemingway, Isaac Newton, Sigmund Freud, Buster Keaton, Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, John Steinbeck, Lord Byron, Tim Burton e altri ancora, tutti personaggi che sono presenti in questo libro grazie ai cani che hanno condiviso con loro la vita e le memorie. La lettura di Amati cani dà piacere poichè in ognuno di questi racconti batte, affettuoso e delicato, il cuore di un cane; ma dà anche un pò da pensare in quanto celebra in maniera molto tenera l’amore, la fedeltà e la solidarietà tra l’uomo e il suo speciale amico a quattro zampe.

    Full Text Available Not available.

    Tan pronto como llegó a España, inició José Antonio Saco su intensa carrera de escritor político, dedicado al estudio de la "cuestión cubana". Se trata de mostrar aquí, mediante el análisis de las más importantes piezas de su publicística, el sentimiento patriótico de Saco hacia Cuba y sus reiteradas propuestas para mejorar la condición colonial de la isla mediante la instauración de un régimen autonómico. Con ello, además, se aseguraría España la conservación de aquella posesión. Saco no creía factible la independencia de Cuba, ni deseable la anexión a los Estados Unidos –que, a su juicio, llevaría a la pérdida del carácter "nacional" hispánico de aquella sociedad insular-, pero pedía la promulgación de las leyes especiales anunciadas desde 1837, que podían haber otorgado a los cubanos participación política, y a la isla una autonomía semejante a la que gozaban las colonias inglesas. Con esta fórmula se hubieran evitado los movimientos y guerras de insurgencia.

  10. The Genesis of La desesperanza by José Donoso

    1999-06-01

    Full Text Available This study analyzes the seven hundred pages of working notes made by the Chilean writer José Donoso as he created La desesperanza , his 1986 novel about the return of a Chilean exile to his homeland. These notes, made in two sustained working sessions, one in the year beginning in December 1980 and the other in the first eight months of 1985, reveal a particular modus operandi : intent on inventing characters who were believable and complex, Donoso subordinated every other aspect of the work—plot, technical considerations like point of view and register, and even the ideas the novel would ultimately convey—to the imagining of a community of fully realized fictional beings. What is more, these working notes afford striking evidence that Donoso, in forging the novel, returned again and again, probably unconsciously, to the theme of ambivalence of child for parent and of parent for child. This theme, while discernible in the finished text, is far more visible in Donoso's ruminations about his work in progress. By examining the ways in which Donoso imbeds the theme of parent-child ambivalence in his text, and by relating his ways of doing so with Melanie Klein's notion of a small child's "split" image of a parent, this study identifies narrative strategies characteristic of Donoso's writing in general. The essay ends by suggesting that the theme of transformation of the self, central to all of Donoso's work, may well be an expression of this writer's preoccupation with ambivalence in the relationship between parent and child.

Su sistemática voluntad  de cultivarse, de tratar de entender al mundo y no sólo de vivirlo, de razonarlo, fue el motor principal que llevaría a Martí a hacerse de una cultura científica y técnica poco común entre los hombres de su época. También el hecho de vivir durante muchos años en los Estados Unidos le permitió analizar con  profundidad y realismo la sociedad de la época, y por tanto llegó a tener una visión muy avanzada de la relación hombre – naturaleza - sociedad, llegando a convertirse en un gran divulgador de los avances de la ciencia y la técnica de aquella época. La originalidad del periodismo de nuevo tipo que inicia José Martí como vehículo para la divulgación científico - técnica encuentra una de sus más altas expresiones en la revista “La América”. Esta publicación había comenzado en abril de 1882, en Nueva York, bajo la dirección de Rafael de Castro Palomino, quien solicita la colaboración del poeta. A partir del mes de marzo de 1883, el Maestro redacta “La América” en su totalidad, desde los titulares hasta los artículos ensayísticos. Martí caracteriza “La América” como “periódico útil”, pues se dedicó a divulgar los adelantos de la industria, comercio y agricultura de los productores de la América del Norte, y en el avisador prudente de los compradores de la América del Sur.

    Godfrey Naanlang Danaan

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available Studies on the role of journalists in the Jos ethno- religious conflicts are enormous, but none examines this phenomenon through the theoretical lenses of mediatisation and news framing to understand the logic that underpins the construction of conflict narratives. While mediatisation describes media logic in news production, news framing suggests the way the narratives which constitute news are constructed. Both theories explain journalistic practices in many respects. For instance, understanding media logic is the first step in identifying journalists’ role in the Jos conflicts which in turn determines the brand of journalism they adopt.The Jos conflicts involve a ‘settler’ group craving for recognition and legitimacy on the one hand, and a group of ‘indigenes’ that insists the territory is its inheritance on the other. Based on critical analysis, this paper argues that journalists impose media logic on their audiences through news framing and make them to understand reality from their own point of view. This effort is a new thinking towards understanding theoretical dimensions to media and/or journalistic interventions in the Jos violent conflicts so that researchers may build on these frameworks.

    The Army simulator facilities are presently configured to conduct hardware-in-the-loop mission tasks on the HELLFIRE and COPPERHEAD missile systems. These systems presently use a LASER seeker. The facility is an ideal candidate to be converted to include infrared (IR) seekers used on the TGSM system. This study investigates the possibility and impact of a facility update. This report documents the feasibility of developing a hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) hybrid simulation incorporating infrared IR seekers used for the Assault Breaker program. Other hardware to be considered are the autopilot, signal conditioning, signal processing, and actuators which may be integrated into the system simulation. Considerations are given to replacing all or elements of hardware while substituting math models in the system simulation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    White, M F

    1994-02-01

    IRS-1 is a principal substrate of the insulin receptor tyrosine kinase. It undergoes multi-site tyrosine phosphorylation and mediates the insulin signal by associating with various signaling molecules containing Src homology 2 domains. Interleukin-4 also stimulates IRS-1 phosphorylation, and it is suspected that a few more growth factors or cytokines will be added to form a select group of receptors that utilize the IRS-1 signaling pathway. More IRS-1-like adapter molecules, such as 4PS (IRS-2), may remain to be found.

    MD 1673 was carried out on October 5 2016, in order to investigate in more detail the available aperture in the LHC high-luminosity insertions at 6.5 TeV and β∗=40 cm. Previous aperture measurements in 2016 during commissioning had shown that the available aperture is at the edge of protection, and that the aperture bottleneck at β∗=40 cm in certain cases is found in the separation plane instead of in the crossing plane. Furthermore, the bottlenecks were consistently found in close to the upstream end of Q3 on the side of the incoming beam, and not in Q2 on the outgoing beam as expected from calculations. Therefore, this MD aimed at measuring IR1 and IR5 separately (at 6.5 TeV and β∗=40 cm, for 185 µrad half crossing angle), to further localize the bottlenecks longitudinally using newly installed BLMs, investigate the difference in aperture between Q2 and Q3, and to see if any aperture can be gained using special orbit bumps.

    2016-01-01

    Using Michel Foucault's lectures on "Psychiatric power" as its starting point, this article analyzes the book Simulación de la locura (The simulation of madness), published in 1903 by the Argentine psychiatrist José Ingenieros. Foucault argues that the problem of simulation permeates the entire history of modern psychiatry. After initial analysis of José Ingenieros's references to the question of simulation in the struggle for existence, the issue of simulation in pathological states in general is examined, and lastly the simulation of madness and the problem of degeneration. Ingenieros participates in the epistemological and political struggle that took place between experts-psychiatrists and simulators over the question of truth.

    Full Text Available ¿Fue protestante José Joaquín de Mora? Quienes lo afirman asumen, quizá por semejanza con el caso de Blanco White, que Mora abandonó el catolicismo durante su primer exilio londinense. Apoyándose en sus propios textos, este artículo sostiene que la conversión no se produjo hasta la década de los cincuenta, cuando el autor contaba ya setenta años. Solo entonces se acumulan indicios como su presencia en los himnarios protestantes o la publicación anónima de un tratado anti-católico en 1855, cuya más que probable autoría desaconseja seguir dudando del reformismo de Mora. / Was José Joaquín de Mora a Protestant? Perhaps due to the similarities with Blanco White’s situation, those who believe in Mora’s conversion maintain that Mora abandoned Catholicism during his first exile inLondon. With Mora’s own texts as backing evidence, this article states that Mora’s conversion did not take place till the 1850’s, when Mora was already 70 years old. It is only then that enough signs, such as his likely authorship of an anti-Catholic tract published anonymously in 1855 or his presence in Protestant hymnals, lead us to consider Mora’s conversion as a reality.

    Full Text Available O projeto iluminista subentende que a educação humana, escapando ao controle das autoridades eclesiásticas e políticas, tornaria o acesso ao pensamento racional irrestrito. Um dos instrumentos de divulgação da pedagogia iluminista foram os jornais, considerados uma epístola regular entre homens de letras que gradualmente vão sendo destinadas a parcelas mais amplas da população. Dentre os mais importantes representantes das Luzes em Portugal está o jornalista José Liberato, autor de dois jornais publicados em Londres entre 1813 e 1821. O autor compreendeu o seu papel de introduzir os portugueses na Era da Razão e, para tanto, imbuiu-se de uma pedagogia que respeitava tanto a religião quanto a monarquia. A proposta deste artigo é investigar os ideais letrados de Liberato, sua proposta pedagógica e, mais importante, como o seu exercício jornalístico construiu uma utopia voltada para pensar o futuro português.   Palavras-chave: História do jornalismo; Iluminismo; Utopia política; José Liberato; O Investigador.   ABSTRACT The Enlightenment implies that human education, escaping the control of ecclesiastical and political authorities, would make possible unrestricted access to rational thought. One of the communication tools of the Enlightenment pedagogy were the newspapers, considered a regular letter among men of letters gradually being designed to broader segments of the population.

    Current limits on the intensity of the extragalactic infrared background are consistent with the expected contribution from evolving galaxies. Depending on the behaviour of the star formation rate and of the initial mass function, we can expect that dust extinction during early evolutionary phases ranges from moderate to strong. An example of the latter case may be the ultraluminous galaxy IRAS F10214 + 4724. The remarkable lack of high redshift galaxies in faint optically selected samples may be indirect evidence that strong extinction is common during early phases.

  1. The IRS-1 signaling system.

    Insulin-receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1) is a principal substrate of the receptor tyrosine kinase for insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1, and a substrate for a tyrosine kinase activated by interleukin 4. IRS-1 undergoes multisite tyrosine phosphorylation and mediates downstream signals by 'docking' various proteins that contain Src homology 2 domains. IRS-1 appears to be a unique molecule; however, 4PS, a protein found mainly in hemopoietic cells, may represent another member of this family.

    Full Text Available José de Alencar (1829-1877 é mais conhecido do público leitor por seus romances. Entretanto, Alencar também foi um dos dramaturgos brasileiro de maior destaque da segunda metade do século XIX, com uma obra marcada por sucessos, fracassos e controvérsias. O presente artigo tem por objeto o estudo de parte importante da obra do dramaturgo José de Alencar, com destaque para o início de suas ações em prol do ainda incipiente teatro brasileiro em sua seção de crônicas Ao correr da pena e a análise de duas de suas principais peças, O demônio familiar (1857 e As asas de um anjo (1857. Esses dois trabalhos não só refletem o sucesso e o fracasso de público do dramaturgo, mas também seu pendor para a polêmica. Utilizando como base teórica João Roberto Faria e por Martin Esslin, bem como outros teóricos da literatura e do teatro, será demonstrado que, embora defendesse o realismo francês no teatro e utilizasse procedimentos relativos ao gênero, tal realismo, em suas peças, era mesclado a soluções românticas que tornaram única a obra deste escritor.José de Alencar (1829-1877 is more known by the public reader by his novels. However, Alencar was also one of the most famous Brazilian playwright of nineteenth century’s second half, with a work marked by successes, failures and controversies. This article intends to study an important part of his work, especially the beginning of his actions towards the still incipient Brazilian theatre in his chronic Ao correr da pena, as well as the analysis of two plays, O demônio familiar (1857, and As asas de um anjo (1857. These works not only show his public’s success and failure, but also his flair for controversy. By using as theoretical basis João Roberto Faria and Martin Esslin, as well as other literary and theatre theorists, it will be shown that, although he defended French realism in theatre and used proceedings related to the genre, such realism, on his plays, was mixed

    Full Text Available We analyzed the composition, diversity, and abundance of marine fish at rocky reefs off San José island, Mexico between October 2001 and August 2002. Fish species were recorded using a visual census in 5 sampling areas of 50 by 5 meters at 2 depths, shallow (1-3 meters and intermediate (5-7 meters. A total of 26 946 organisms were counted, belonging to 84 species. The families Serranidae (9 species, Labridae (8, Pomacentridae (7, and Haemulidae (6 were the most representative. We measured the rugosity of the bottom surface, which showed a positive relationship with abundance, richness, and fish diversity. The ocean bottom off San José island is covered with various size rocks that offer more feeding and refuge areas to fish assemblages than other areas. The ecological index increased during the warm season. Diversity and richness showed significant variations (PSe analizó la estructura íctica de los arrecifes rocosos de Isla San José, México entre octubre del 2001 y agosto del 2002.

    Full Text Available A produção musical no gênero sacro teve importantes representantes no período do Brasil Colônia e Imperial, entre os quais se destaca o Padre José Maurício Nunes Garcia, responsável pela música da Sé Imperial do Rio de Janeiro antes e após a chegada da família real em 1808. Sua vasta produção resistiu ao tempo através de manuscritos autógrafos ou não, os quais têm sido alvo de intensos estudos, com destaque para as pesquisas pioneiras de Cleofe Person de Mattos. Mesmo assim, atualmente, apenas parte de sua obra encontrase restaurada do ponto de vista musicológico com vistas à perfomance. Desta forma, este estudo visa comentar a transcrição musicológica de um moteto de exemplar fatura, intitulado Veni Sancte Spiritus, para pequena orquestra de cordas, duas flautas e coro a quatro vozes.Sacred musical production had important representatives in the period of colonial and imperial Brazil, among which stands out Father José Maurício Nunes Garcia, in charge of music at the Royal Chapel in Rio de Janeiro before and after the arrival of the royal family in 1808. His vast output resisted time through autograph manuscripts or copies, which have been the target of intense study, especially the pioneering research of Cleofe Person de Mattos. Yet, currently, only part of his work is restored from the musicological point of view in what regards performance. Thus, this study aims to comment on the musicological transcription of a motet entitled Veni Sancte Spiritus, for small orchestra of strings, two flutes and a fourvoice choir.

    1992-01-01

    Optical constants, i.e., refractive index 'n' and absorption index 'k' of the IR materials, Ge, ThF4, CdTe and CdSe have been determined, through spectrophotometric method, in the IR region from 2.5 to 15 microns. It is seen that all these films are transparent in the IR region, and the optical constants of the films deposited at elevated temperatures (T = 200 C) are unaffected, even after subjecting to severe environs such as humidity and thermal shock/cycling. Making use of Ge/ThF4 and CdTe/CdSe coating combinations, IR antireflection coatings (ARCs) which can find applications in space-borne electrooptical systems have been successfully designed and developed. The resulting ARCs have not only efficient optical properties, low reflection loss and high transmission, but are also durable against adverse environments.

    A geoelectric investigation involving twenty-six vertical electrical soundings was carried out at Jos, Plateau State, North Central Nigeria. The survey was aimed at determining the structure of the underlying bedrock, as well as computing the transmissivity for the aquifer in the area. The basement geometrymapproduced from the results of the survey indicates that the bedrock is undulating lying at depths between 30 m to 6.5 m. There is evidence of faulting and fracturing within the area. Computation of aquifer transmissivity values based on the results obtained made it possible to demarcate regions with good ground water potential in the area.

    Full Text Available Tomasz Szumski, hitherto known in the literature as a secondary school teacher and the author of textbooks, was also the owner of a bookshop and a lending library attached to it. Both were in operation between 1809 and 1824. Their establishment was apparently effected by a deliberate wish to create an establishment that would counterbalance the influence of German bookshops in the town and would offer Polish and foreign literature (mainly French to as wide circles of readers as possible. Additionally, it was intended to be a bookshop that would provide support to the general public with selling textbooks and assigned reading texts for youths. For Szumski himself, the bookshop was also a source of considerable extra income. Szumski’s intention was to sell as much of the current publishing output from Warsaw, Cracow, Lvov, Wrocław (then Breslau and Vilna as possible. He also provided subscriptions to a great number of titles of newspapers and periodicals. He did not neglect the marketing issues involved in his line of business and published numerous book catalogues and kept the press well informed about his new acquisitions. In terms of its size, the bookshop was not a big place and, at the time of its forced closure effected by an administrative writ issued by the German authorities, nearly 2,500 titles were on offer. Following its closure it was repossessioned and bought by the German bookseller Ernst S. Mittler.

    Fernández Casanova, Manuel

    2008-06-01

    Full Text Available The so-called Question on the subject in José Ángel Valente’s Works is going to be analysed in this essay. This essay is been thought from the writer’s reject to the definition of subjectivity as a representation of the consciousness, as a permanent request opposed to an ever-changing Reality. From this point, we’ll be able to see how at the same time his texts pose this conflict and look for the solution. This analyse will start from the following three levels: the treatment given to the lyrical self, the relationship between man and Reality, and the reformulation of the concept of authorship. This will take us from the first manoeuvres of ironical desubjectivation —in debt with an anguished perception of the existence as with to the necessity of treating the subjectivity from the compromise with the collective— to the writer’s assumption of a mystical focussing on this question, a question in which Nothingness and Otherness will play a decisive role.En el presente ensayo analizaremos el alcance de la llamada cuestión del sujeto dentro de la obra de José Ángel Valente. Partiendo de una definición de la subjetividad en clave de trasunto de la consciencia, de instancia permanente enfrentada a una realidad en constante cambio, observaremos el rechazo que el escritor experimenta ante tal concepción, así como el modo en que sus textos plantean el conflicto y buscan una resolución al mismo. Nuestro análisis atenderá fundamentalmente a tres niveles: tratamiento que recibe el yo lírico en esta obra, relación que se establece en ella entre el hombre y la realidad, y reformulación del concepto de autoría; y nos llevará desde unas primeras maniobras de desubjetivización irónica (deudoras por igual de una percepción angustiosa de la existencia y de la necesidad de abordar lo subjetivo desde el compromiso con el colectivo hasta la adopción por parte del escritor de un enfoque místico de la cuestión en el que las figuras de

    2009-06-01

    Full Text Available José Ángel Valente’s work stands among the most self-conscious in contemporary Spanish literature. Its self-consciousness is based on both the uncertainty and insecurity produced by the totally conflicting and unstable nature of his word, whose materiality surfaces through the promise of its appearance or the risk of its disappearance. He views poetry not so much as a perfectly polished architecture but as a site for the continual production of cells and seeds of meaning.José Ángel Valente es autor de una de las escrituras más autoconscientes de la literatura española contemporánea, autoconciencia basada en la incertidumbre y la inseguridad derivadas del lugar absolutamente conflictivo e inestable que ocupa la palabra, cuya materialidad adquiere forma en la promesa de su emergencia o en el riesgo de su desaparición, una escritura, en definitiva, entendida no tanto como una arquitectura perfectamente acabada sino como un escenario de producción incesante de células y semillas de sentido.

    Full Text Available VOLTAR ao escritor peruano José María Arguedas hoje, em meio a discussões sobre a especificidade histórica e conceitual da literatura, pode permitir que vejamos com outros olhos sua defesa de uma teoria da representação em que a dicotomia fato/fetiche deixa de ter sentido. Se as narrativas transculturadoras da literatura hispano-americana de meados do século XX se ocuparam da transformação da religião em literatura, o que se vê em Arguedas é, ao contrário, a tentativa de ritualização da literatura e a defesa de algo que poderíamos chamar, talvez, de um direito a não ser literatura.A RETURN to Peruvian writer José Mar ía Arguedas today, amidst discussions regarding the historical and conceptual specificity of literature, may allow us to see in a new light his defense of a theory of representation in which the dichotomy fact/fetish loses its ground.

    Full Text Available En 1922 José Vasconcelos hace un viaje a América del Sur e invita en Chile a Lucila Godoy Alcayaga, que llegará a conocerse como Gabriela Mistral, para que apoye su movimiento de reforma educacional. Su estancia en México de 1922 a 1924 dejará profunda huella en ambos. Mucho más tarde ella seguirá la huella del gran mexicano con preocupación y afecto. Este trabajo pretende revivir ese momento privilegiado de encuentro entre un mexicano y una chilena en el plano pedagógico al servicio de un movimiento de reforma como no se ha visto otro. Con la mirada puesta en los jóvenes pedagogos de hoy, que conocen poco de esta herencia, es un aporte al estudio decantado y sin la pasión del momento histórico vivido de José Vasconcelos y de Gabriela Mistral en una de sus dimensiones más notables: la pedagogía.

    2012-01-01

    Diarrhea is widely recognized as a major cause of childhood morbidity and mortality in many developing countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. According to World Health Organization (WHO) report in the African region, diarrheal diseases are still leading causes of mortality and morbidity in children under five years of age. This same report indicates that each child in the said region has five episodes of diarrhea per year and that 800,000 die each year from diarrhea and dehydration. This study examined diarrheal morbidity and associated risk factors in children under five years in Jos. A total of 340 children were seen in the Diarrhea Training Unit (DTU) of the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), Jos, over a period of 24 months (Jan 2008-Dec 2009). A semi-structured interviewer administered questionnaire was used to generate the data. All women whose children presented with diarrhea were interviewed and data generated analyzed using Epi info version 3.5.1 statistical software. During the study period, 13,076 children were seen in our facility, of which 340 were suffering from diarrhea, thus giving a diarrhea prevalence of 2.7%. There were 183 (54%) male and 157 (40%) female children seen with diarrhea. The mean age was 11 ± 8.5 months. The mean duration of diarrhea was found to be 4 ± 3.6 days. A majority of children were aged less than 6 months, consisting of 235 infants, 95 toddlers, and 10 pre-schoolers. Of the number of women seen, 242 (61%) had at least primary education, while 98 (29%) had no formal education. Diarrheal episodes were found to have a bivariate association with mothers' educational status, family type, family size, breastfeeding, and sex of child. However, only mother's educational status, diarrhea in other sibling, and breast feeding were significantly associated with the occurrence of diarrhea. Although there were more male children with diarrhea, the odds of having diarrhea was not significantly related to sex. Our study

    Full Text Available Mitochondria play a pivotal role in energy metabolism, but whether insulin signaling per se could regulate mitochondrial function has not been identified yet. To investigate whether mitochondrial function is regulated by insulin signaling, we analyzed muscle and liver of insulin receptor (IR+/−-insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1+/− double heterozygous (IR-IRS1dh mice, a well described model for insulin resistance. IR-IRS1dh mice were studied at the age of 6 and 12 months and glucose metabolism was determined by glucose and insulin tolerance tests. Mitochondrial enzyme activities, oxygen consumption, and membrane potential were assessed using spectrophotometric, respirometric, and proton motive force analysis, respectively. IR-IRS1dh mice showed elevated serum insulin levels. Hepatic mitochondrial oxygen consumption was reduced in IR-IRS1dh animals at 12 months of age. Furthermore, 6-month-old IR-IRS1dh mice demonstrated enhanced mitochondrial respiration in skeletal muscle, but a tendency of impaired glucose tolerance. On the other hand, 12-month-old IR-IRS1dh mice showed improved glucose tolerance, but normal muscle mitochondrial function. Our data revealed that deficiency in IR/IRS-1 resulted in normal or even elevated skeletal muscle, but impaired hepatic mitochondrial function, suggesting a direct cross-talk between insulin signaling and mitochondria in the liver.

    BACKGROUND Female Sex Workers (FSWs) are key reservoirs of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) from which transmission to the general population fuels epidemics. STIs amplify HIV infectiousness and susceptibility. We determined the status of HIV and STIs among brothel-based FSWs in Jos as part of an ongoing prevention intervention. METHOD Between January and May 2012, consenting consecutive brothel-based FSWs were recruited from previously designated brothels across Jos. HIV counseling and testing as well as screening for gonorrhoea, syphilis, trichomonasis, candidasis and Bacteria vaginosis (BV) were performed. Positive cases were provided free treatment and follow-up at Solat Women Hospital, Jos. Ethical clearance was obtained from Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) ethical committee. RESULT Two hundred FSWs aged 27.6 ± 4.6 years (range 15–55 years) were recruited and of these, 47 (23.5%) were HIV Positive, 20 (10.0%) had syphilis, 9 (4.5%) had Neisseria gonorrhea, 3 (1.5%) had Trichomonas vaginalis and 86 (43.0%) had BV. The association between HIV and bacterial vaginosis was statistically significant (OR of 2.2, 95% CI of 1.1–4.2, P-value=0.02). In comparison to similar prevalence in 2006, the current findings represent 51.5% decline in HIV prevalence, 40.8% decline for syphilis and over 83.3% decline in prevalence for Trichomonas vaginalis. There was no significant change in the prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoea and BV. CONCLUSION The prevalence of HIV and STIs among brothel-based FSWs in Jos remain unacceptably high, although, there is a declining trend. A comprehensive HIV prevention program targeting these women is required to block transmission to the general population. PMID:25335372

The main issue is, on a thematic level, to individuate and analyse the Medusean figures in these texts, the construction of the female characters and of their relationships with male characters based on the narrative articulation of visual dynamics. On a formal level, the Gorgon's marks are traced to the constitutive limit of language. This work also studies the transition from a writing based on the blindness or visual incapacitation – and the consequent impossibility of expression − to a narrative based on a visual complexity, obtained by joining the past perspective of the narrated I and the present one of the narrating I.

    2012-10-01

    The description of ionic currents that flow across the membrane of the squid giant axon during an action potential sparked an interest in determining whether there were similar currents in vertebrates. The preparation of choice was the node of Ranvier in single myelinated fibers in frog. José del Castillo spent 3 years on the United States mainland from 1956 to 1959. During that time, he collaborated with Jerome Y. Lettvin and John W. Moore. I discuss how these individuals met one another and some of their scientific discoveries using the voltage clamp to study squid giant axons and frog nodes. Much of this work was conducted at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, and I attempt to convey a sense of the unique scientific "melting pot" that existed at the Marine Biological Laboratory and the broader effect that del Castillo had on "modern" neuroscience.

    Multi-organ involvement by opportunistic infections and neoplasms is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in people living with HIV/AIDS. We determined the spectrum/frequency of hepatic histopathological lesions in a prospective study of postmortem liver biopsies from 100 patients (50 females and 50 males, age range 18-55 years) who died from HIV/AIDS in Jos university teaching hospital, Nigeria. The majority of the patients, 65 (65%), had clinical tuberculosis. Granulomatous hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, non-specific reactive hepatitis (NSRH) and steatosis were the commonest hepatic histopathologic lesions occurring in 34, 20,15 and 12% of patients, respectively. Seven (7%) had normal histological features. This study shows that the liver is affected in HIV/AIDS as reported elsewhere in the world. Therefore, liver biopsy in HIV patients may be helpful in the management of these patients.

    Full Text Available En décadas recientes ha habido un interés creciente por la literatura de viajes, uno de los más antiguos géneros que sólo últimamente está siendo objeto de tentativas de sistematización teórica. Si bien la mayoría de los estudios críticos abordan esta literatura desde un corpus esencialmente narrativo, con una clara primacía de subgéneros como la novela, el relato o la crónica, en este ensayo planteo la existencia de una ‘poesía de viajes’ a partir de la obra lírica del mexicano José Emilio Pacheco.

    Full Text Available Se analizó la obra La feria, del escritor jalisciense Juan José Arreola, para explicar cómo la historia y la literatura se entrecruzan y y se asemejan en el acto de la enunciación. Tanto una como otra utilizan la narración para poder dar cuenta de su ‘realidad’, ya sea histórica, mediante crónicas de los hechos, o ficcionalizada, al recrear mundos posibles. En el caso de la obra citada, el autor/narrador muestra una faceta de historiador, lo que le permite reconstruir y traer a cuenta los momentos trascendentales de una sociedad.

    Full Text Available O Livro de José de Arimateia, cópia quinhentista de uma tradução portuguesa do romance arturiano francês Estoire del Saint Graal, ainda não dispõe de uma edição crítica. Esteartigo propõe que tal edição tente reconstituir o original duocentista da tradução, para isso procedendo a emendas baseadas na tradição francesa, em vez de se limitar a reproduzir o texto português do século XVI. Como amostra do procedimento proposto, é editado o cap. XCI, onde figuram algumas lições que sugerem que o ms. francês que serviu de original à tradução ocupava uma posição estemática muito elevada.

    José Ortega y Gasset (Madrid, 9/5/1883-18/10/1955) fue el gran filósofo español del siglo XX y el arquetipo del intelectual de su época. Estudioso y conocedor de su tiempo, a Ortega le importaba sobre todo el hombre y “su circunstancia”, el hombre en convivencia, el hombre en relación con los otros y con lo que le rodea. Esta fue su gran preocupación como pensador y fue el eje sobre el que basculó su filosofía vitalista. Su interés por ese gran escenario que para él era el mundo, le llevó a a...

  13. José Joaquín de Mora, Protestant Before Death

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available Was José Joaquín de Mora a Protestant? Perhaps due to the similarities with Blanco White’s situation, those who believe in Mora’s conversion maintain that Mora abandoned Catholicism during his first exile inLondon. With Mora’s own texts as backing evidence, this article states that Mora’s conversion did not take place till the 1850’s, when Mora was already 70 years old. It is only then that enough signs, such as his likely authorship of an anti-Catholic tract published anonymously in 1855 or his presence in Protestant hymnals, lead us to consider Mora’s conversion as a reality.

    Full Text Available The present work proposes to present a study about the Park of the City of São José dos Campos. Its history and its relations with the local memory have created its own identity in the system of public spaces of the district. Originally designed by Burle Marx as a space surrounding the textile industry Tecelagem Parahyba, the park has been appropriated by the population of the area, going from the condition of private to public space and assuming an identity of public park of the city .It is proposed to discuss the reasons why a park initially part of a private property has extended its uses to the sphere of public life and also to understand its role in the context of the landscape architecture in the city.

    Full Text Available Se propone desentrañar la manera en que la narrativa de José Revueltas provee de significación al ‘cuerpo enfermo’ de los personajes que crea este escritor nacido hace 100 años en Durango, México. Con la ayuda de categorías literarias generadas por el propio Revueltas, y observando la ‘pluriperspectiva’ de algunos personajes revueltianos, se construye una fenomenología de la enfermedad que altera la normalidad de los cuerpos y las conciencias de los actores en relatos como “El Dios vivo”, “Dormir en tierra” y, particularmente, en “Cama 11”, al igual que en las novelas Los días terrenales y El apando. Se encuentra, entonces, un proceso dialéctico que trasciende la dicotomía ‘salud-enfermedad’.

    Full Text Available El primer libro de José Manuel Arango, Este lugar de la noche, apareció en agosto de 1973. Un pequeño volumen de cuarenta y siete páginas, que contenía treinta y ocho poemas, casi todos brevísimos, algunos de tres o cuatro versos nada más. El significado central de este libro está dado por la imagen del poeta como descifrador de enigmas. Hay quizá un sentido cifrado en cada cosa: en la roca del acantilado, en la sílaba que repite el oleaje del mar, en el buche vibrante de la tórtola, en la lengua arcaica del indígena vendedor de pájaros. El poema, cada poema en particular, no alcanza para la tarea romántica del desciframiento.

Cuestionando la denominación supuestamente homogénea de una “izquierda peronista”, el análisis contribuye a exhibir y comprender las diferentes voces que en la década del setenta reivindicaron al peronismo y abogaron por una transformación cabal de la sociedad.

Materials and Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional survey of registered commercial intercity vehicle drivers at the Bauchi Road Motor Park Jos. The study instrument was a pretested semi-structured questionnaire. Information obtained included demographic data, operational route, and ocular history. Each participant had a detailed ocular examination. The principal cause of visual loss for each eye and for the person was documented in accordance with WHO guidelines. Results: Two hundred and sixty eight 268 drivers were recruited and assessed (survey coverage: 82.5%. Their age ranged from 20-90 years (mean: 44.2, SD 9.2. Most 158 (71.5% respondents had ocular symptoms, the most common were difficulty in reading small prints 78 (35.3%, itching 56 (25.3%, and poor distant vision 17 (7.7%. Eight (3.6% drivers complained of glare. Ten (4.5% drivers had a visual acuity of <6/12 and thus did not qualify to possess a driving licence. The prevalence of ocular morbidity was 72.9% (161/221. The most prevalent ocular morbidities were presbyopia (42.5%, allergic conjunctivitis (26.2%, cataract (8.6%, refractive errors and pterygium (2.7%. One (0.5% respondent had advanced chronic glaucoma. Conclusion: A significant number of drivers do not have the minimum visual requirement for driver′s licensure. The prevalence of ocular morbidity among the drivers is high. The national policy on eye examination as a precondition for driver′s licensure and renewal should be enforced.

They do not interfere with intercourse with immediate return to fertility after removal. However, disruption of the menstrual bleeding pattern is almost inevitable and coercive prescription may be a problem because insertion and removal of implants are provider dependent. The objective of this study was to determine the sociodemographic profiles of acceptors of Jadelle and the reasons for discontinuation in Jos, Nigeria. Materials and Methods: This was a 6-year retrospective chart review carried out at the Jos University Teaching Hospital. Results: About 1401 women accepted Jadelle with a mean (΁standard deviation of 33.4 ΁ 5.9 years. About 88% of the women were Christians and almost three-quarters (73.5% had at least secondary school education. The means of parity and number of children still alive at the time of accepting Jadelle were 4.1 and 3.8, respectively. Half of the women (49.5% were breastfeeding and over half (55.9% had future fertility desires at the time of commencing Jadelle. About 82% had previously used other contraceptives (mostly short-acting methods such as injectables, pills, and condoms, with only 18% starting Jadelle as the first-ever contraceptive method. About 90% of the women had regular menstrual cycles. The major reason for discontinuation of Jadelle was desire for pregnancy although menstrual pattern disruption was the most common reason for removal in the first 6 months of use. Conclusion: The main reason for discontinuation of Jadelle was to have more children although menstrual pattern disruptions accounted for earlier discontinuation.

As a result, hospitals face greater risk of losing their tax-exempt status in the maze of joint ventures, physician recruitment, and practice acquisition. To be successful, ventures will have to be backed by sound reasoning and thorough documentation.

It means the fragility of human life, the spiritual drowse or, on the contrary, the spiritual revelation (in the case of the prophetical dream. This article seeks to compare the functions of the metaphor in the works A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1595 by William Shakespeare, La vida es sueno (1635 by Pedro Calderon de la Barca and A Dream Play (1901 by August Strindberg, as well as in Lithuanian works by Zbignievas Morštynas, Vydūnas, Šatrijos Ragana.

The works interpret the Christian doctrine of the free will in different ways and from different aspects. The works of Lithuanian literature also participate in the intertextual polylogue inspired by the metaphor of life as a dream. However, they have got another stresses, they foreground the mea­nings of the world’s fragility and human spirituality (as the negative of living in a dream.

    Full Text Available José Ignacio Moreno es uno de los fundadores de la independencia del Perú. En calidad de tal acompañó el proyecto del General rioplatense José de San Martín de transformar en 1822 la monarquía peruana en un reino independiente. Pero, a diferencia de la multitud de sus contemporáneos, la historiografía apenas lo presenta como un circunstante en la epopeya de la emancipación, de quien no se conserva ni un retrato. El motivo es la extraña adherencia de este personaje a las ideas del ultramontanismo y su temprana cercanía con la obra del contrarrevolucionario francés Joseph de Maistre. Un discurso monárquico extremista en 1822 lo colocaría como el fundador involuntario del Perú como República.

    Full Text Available The brief autobiography written by José Cadalso in 1773, unknown until its discovery in 1967, has driven to some interpretations in many different and contradictory ways. This work has a great importance in order to describe Cadalso's personality, and it presuposes also an unique testimonial on the Spanish autobiographical literature of the eigteenth century. This paper aims at making a critical revision of the different readings included in that little work and try to study not only its style and structure, but also its selection of the biographical information found in the memoirs and its consecuent development. The conclusion is that Cadalso's work is an early autobiography in a modern sense, introspective and full OS moral and psychological preoccupations. This autobiography takes a distance from the rest of Spanish modern autobiographies in the fact of being a work written in Cadalso's young years, in the middle of incertitudes to the future and not with the intention of making an overview of his past life.La breve autobiografía de José Cadalso, escrita en 1773 y desconocida hasta su descubrimiento en 1967, ha dado lugar a interpretaciones muy diversas y contradictorias.

En el artículo se efectúa una revisión crítica de las distintas opiniones vertidas sobre este opúsculo, se estudia su estilo, su estructura, la selección del material biográfico incluido en estos recuerdos y su desarrollo. La conclusión de este estudio caracteriza la obra de Cadalso como una precoz autobiografía de estilo moderno, introspectiva y dominada por inquietudes morales y psicológicas, que se distingue de todas las otras autobiografías modernas españolas por su condición de escritor juvenil, presidido por la incertidumbre ante el futuro antes que por el balance

Medina Echavarría puso en práctica, en Latinoamérica, la sociología del desarrollo, introduciendo la importancia de lo social. Medina sostuvo que el desarrollo no implica exclusivamente el logro de metas económicas, sino que también ha de suponer la consecución de fines democráticos. A lo largo de su carrera, Medina asumió los planteamientos weberianos para definir, entre otros aspectos, qué fuerzas espontáneas pueden cambiar la sociedad. El aporte de Medina Echavarría se podría resumir en tres puntos esenciales: la comprensión de una sociología concreta de corte culturalista e historicista; el encuentro y el entendimiento de la sociología latinoamericana con otras disciplinas académicas, particularmente con la ciencia económica; la sociología y la ciencia como instrumento al servicio del hombre.This article presents a journey through the thought of Spanish sociologist José Medina Echavarría, whose work has maintained a sense of permanence within Latin American social sciences.

Martí fue el organizador y líder de la última guerra americana contra el colonialismo europeo clásico, pero el sentido profundo que dio a esa lucha la convirtió en una verdadera guerra de liberación nacional: el primer movimiento concreto contra el imperialismo. Entre los rasgos más originales del pensamiento martiano están: la proclamación de la igualdad de razas; la búsqueda de la superación de las diferencias de clase mediante el equilibrio de las fuerzas sociales; la reivindicación de la solidaridad hacia los humildes como un deber; la predicación de una “guerra sin odios”, que debía ser obra del pueblo y no de líderes; la comprensión y definición de Nuestra América; la insistencia en la necesidad de una descolonización cultural latinoamericana; y el antiimperialismo.   This paper is a sketch of the Cuban writer and politician José Martí (1853-1895, with special attention to the validity of his ethical thinking, which is the basis of his permanent relevance. Martí was the organizer and leader of the last American war against European colonialism, but the deep commitment he made to that struggle turned it into a war of national liberation, the first concrete movement against imperialism. Among the most original features of Martí’s thought are the proclamation of the equality of races; the search for overcoming class differences through the balance of social forces; solidarity with the poor being considered a duty; the preaching of a “war without hates” that must be the work of the people, its leaders; the comprehension and definition of Our America; the insistence on the need, throughout Latin America, of cultural decolonization; and an anti-imperialistic stance.

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available Time, memory and forgetfulness are recurring motifs in the work of the poets of the generation of the 50’s or generación del medio siglo. This article focuses on José Manuel Caballero Bonald’s personal revision of the concept of time, one of the most universal poetic themes. The poet takes his rhetoric from the Baroque tradition to re-visit ideas of time and provide a reinterpretation that contrasts sharply with that of contemporary poets while laying down a clear thread of intertextuality with the literary culture of the past. For his meditation on time, the poet's legacy results in a unique amalgam of Borges’ motifs and the Baroque worldview. From Quevedo’s intertext, the author’s new Baroque style blends poetic culteranismo and conceptismo with lexical precision to result in a lyrical universe that reconciles opposites, a poetic writing more nourished by knowledge than by experience, and a form of expression strongly embedded in the formal and conceptual systems of the Baroque.

De este modo, frente a la naturaleza servil y relativa de esta última, la palabra poética podrá comprenderse como Logos, espacio donde la razón y la emoción quedan unidas para así despertar su pleno poder creador. La palabra poética, de acuerdo con Valente, presentará tintes sagrados en tanto que no obedece a una lógica causal sino que nos remite directamente a órdenes trascendentales. Desde esta perspectiva podremos comprender la función del poeta como una lucha a través del verbo por adentrarse en un grado de realidad más hondo, más verdadero, aspecto que estudiaremos a lo largo de este trabajo.

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Mais conhecido cineasta brasileiro de horror, José Mojica Marins tem uma obra vasta, na qual transitou por outros gêneros fílmicos, como o western e o sexo explícito. Ele trabalhou dentro de modos de produção distintos, usou diversas tecnologias e lidou com mudanças profundas no círculo de colaboradores. Tudo isso teve como consequência certa heterogeneidade temática, visual e sonora nos filmes que ele dirigiu, tornando mais difícil a tarefa de rastrear uma assinatura estilística em sua obra. Apesar disso, é possível afirmar que seus filmes têm um estilo próprio. Este ensaio procura identificar padrões recorrentes de forma e conteúdo na obra de Mojica, tentando explicá-los através do exame dos contextos socioculturais, tecnológicos, econômicos e políticos que afetaram o trabalho e a vida pessoal do cineasta.

  7. Proteccionismo, filibusterismo, libre comercio: José Martí y los tratados comerciales

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Aun cuando los tratados de libre comercio se han constituido en los principales instrumentos de regulación en lo comercial, entre países, en los últimos 25 años, estos han sido un referente constante en los procesos bilaterales y multilaterales de negociación en esta materia. Como práctica se remonta al siglo XIX. En este sentido José Martí, héroe cubano, desarrolla un análisis del acuerdo comercial entre México y los Estados Unidos, propuesto en 1883, que mantiene vigencia, sobre la base de los preceptos en los que se fundamenta, el tráficode mercancías y uso de recursos de todo tipo. Los acuerdos de esta naturaleza responden a estrategias propias del proceso de acumulación de capital, dentro del marco de la realización de la ganancia. Este artículo hace referencia al análisis martiano y su expresión en el proceso de globalización del signo actual, el referido a los tratados de libre comercio como medios de expansión y dominio político y económico.

    The series of texts composing this book is based on the lectures presented during the II José Plínio Baptista School of Cosmology, held in Pedra Azul (Espírito Santo, Brazil) between 9 and 14 March 2014. This II JBPCosmo has been entirely devoted to the problem of understanding theoretical and observational aspects of Cosmic Background Radiation (CMB). The CMB is one of the most important phenomena in Physics and a fundamental probe of our Universe when it was only 400,000 years old. It is an extraordinary laboratory where we can learn from particle physics to cosmology; its discovery in 1965 has been a landmark event in the history of physics. The observations of the anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation through the satellites COBE, WMAP and Planck provided a huge amount of data which are being analyzed in order to discover important information regarding the composition of our universe and the process of structure formation.

    Full Text Available This article presents a way to get into the reading of Morirás lejos (“You Will Die Far Away”, the only novel written by the Mexican poet José Emilio Pacheco. In the novel are displayed important features of the narrative structure, being emphasized the possible characters, potential narrators and virtual spaces where the story is developed. The novel can be seen as compilation of notes and drafts, in the sense that it is a deliberately unfinished narrative speech. The settlement of this proposal allows to support the idea of facing a non-ending novel, a novel that is in the writing process, a novel to come. In a nutshell, in Morirás lejos are told some moments of the history of the persecution of the Jewish people, and a merely fictional story in which the characters are eme and Alguien. A third story is woven throughout the text, and this is the story of the writing process of Morirás lejos.

    Full Text Available Any approach to José Marti’s literary production should consider the study of his collected letters, which are noticeable for its content and expressive devices. This article synthesizes the criteria of former researchers who have considered Marti’s collected letters as a privileged genre among the multiple and diverse cultivated by the Apostle (speeches, dramas, essays, journal article, short stories and literary criticism. The collected letters takes a large proportion of his prolific literary production and its expressive force has been widely recognized as a source of inspiration for other poets. His collection of letters is outstanding and lasting in time for its expressive magnificence, its depth of content and precise choice of words. Originally written for a definite addressee, the letters are currently read by new generations of readers, who rediscover a new message in each. Topic considered in this article is part of a wider range study which is been prepared as Ph. D. thesis.

    A questionnaire-based study of chicken production system with on-farm biosecurity practices was carried out in commercial poultry farms located in Jos, Nigeria. Commercial and semicommercial farms had 75.3% and 24.5% of 95,393 birds on 80 farms, respectively. Farms using deep litter and battery cage systems were 69 (86.3%) and 10 (12.5%), respectively. In our biosecurity scoring system, a correct practice of each indicator of an event scored 1.00 and biosecurity score (BS) of each farm was the average of the scores of biosecurity indicators for the farm, giving BS of zero and 1.00 as absence of biosecurity and optimal biosecurity, respectively. Semicommercial farms had higher BS than commercial farms. The flock size did not significantly (p > 0.05) affect the mean BS. Disease outbreaks correlated (r = -0.97) with BS, showing a tendency of reduction of disease outbreaks with increasing BS. Outbreaks were significantly (p biosecurity practices and weak points in the biosecurity could be ameliorated by extension of information to farmers in order to support expansion of chicken production with robust biosecurity measures that drastically reduce risk of disease outbreak.

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available The objective of this paper is to ascertain the principles of the economic thinking of José Yves Limantour, and the changes they underwent, to explain the process of transformation of econo- mic liberalism which, as will be seen, tended more toward state intervention; this, incidentally, can be considered as the basis of economic nationalism as developed by the post-revolutionary governments. It follows, then, that the study of Limantour and his economic thinking seeks to explain the transformation process to which the Mexican liberal state was subjected in thelast decade of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th. The study is divided into two sections, the first of which explores the general characteristics of the liberal state and its transfor- mations from the 1850s through to the 1900s. The second analyses the spheres of the Mexican economy that constituted the main focuses of Limantour’s interventions and regulation.

    Full Text Available Aware of television’s high level of persuasion and impact, politicians have progressively adapted their messages to the guidelines of the audiovisual media in order to strongly persuade TV viewers, which are seen as potential voters. Currently, the communication, marketing and telegenicity teams of most political parties do not only train their politicians to effectively use verbal communication, but they also try to reinforce their non-verbal communications skills, because they understand that a really effective message is only created through the correct combination of both dimensions. This article presents an in-depth study of the nonverbal communication displayed by the Prime Minister of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, during the first quarter of 2010 when a political topic predominated in the agenda: the financial crisis. Through content analysis, and a self-developed methodology, the study aims to decipher the strategic meaning of this political leader’s kinesic behaviour in the second edition of Telediario, the news programme broadcast by Spain’s Public TV Network (Televisión Española, aka, TVE.

Abordamos as interpretações de José Veríssimo sobre os problemas nacionais da educação brasileira no final do século XIX e início do século XX. Nossa intenção é apresentar e analisar estas interpretações, realizadas na Primeira República. José Veríssimo nasceu em Óbidos, no Pará, em 1857, e faleceu no Rio de Janeiro, em 1916, passando parte de sua vida intelectual no Pará e parte na capital da República, onde fundou e participou ativamente da Academia Brasileira de Letras (ABL e da Revista Brasileira. O autor foi estudioso importante nas discussões sobre as consequências do colonialismo português e as tentativas frustradas de uma política republicana de educação no Brasil. Para José Veríssimo, a educação pública deveria estrategicamente superar as degenerescências raciais, especialmente localizadas nos sertões do Brasil, promovidas pela colonização. Os "Brasis" que sociologicamente constituíam o território nacional àquela época são pensados por Veríssimo como um entrave a ser superado pela República para a inserção do País na ordem moderna que, para ele, significava civilização. Mas esta civilização almejada se efetivaria, na sua perspectiva, na medida em que todos os brasileiros fossem incluídos em um projeto de unidade nacional.This article associates the studies about educational thought in Brazil.

    Full Text Available Antibacterial activity of ethanolic extract of Acalypha wilkesiana leaves growing in Vom, Jos, Plateau state, Nigeria was carried out to verify claims by the locals of its medicinal properties. We tested the extract for activity against Staphylococcus aureus (G+, Yersinia enterocolitica, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella aerogenes (G-. The extract exhibited activity against the organisms in varying degrees. In the agar diffusion test, Y. enterocolitica showed the highest zone of inhibition (18 mm at the highest concentration of extract tested (20 mg/mL while E. coli, S. aureus, S. typhi, P. aeruginosa and K. aerogenes showed zones of inhibition of 17, 16, 15, 14 and 16 mm respectively. At extract concentration of 2.5 mg/mL, Y. enterocolitica and P. aeruginosa did not show any zones of inhibition while E.coli, S. aureus, S. typhi, and K. aerogenes showed zones of inhibition of 7, 6, 6 and 7 mm respectively. Below extract concentration of 2.5 mg/mL, there was no zone of inhibition observed with any organism. The MIC of the extract against the organisms was 5 mg/mL except on S. aureus where the MIC was 2.5 mg/mL. The MBC of the extract was 10 mg/mL against Y. enterocolitica, S. typhi, P. aeruginosa and K. aerogenes, 5 mg/mL against E. coli and S. aureus. Preliminary phytochemical testing revealed the presence of tannins, steroids, flavonoids and cardiac glycosides while saponins, alkaloids and anthraquinones were not present. The result gives scientific backing to the use of the leaves by the local people in the treatment of conditions usually associated with the organisms tested.

    Full Text Available Background: Physicians who have the task of caring for the sick also need to be cared for when they take ill. Healthseeking habits of physicians have been found to be poor in most developed countries. Utilization of health services by physicians in developing countries is not known. We sought to describe the health seeking habits of physicians in Nigeria. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional survey was carried out among physicians at the Jos University Teaching Hospital, a tertiary referral health facility in North-central Nigeria. A pre-tested questionnaire was administered to physicians to get information on their self-reported health seeking habits. Results: Self prescription was practiced by 98.6% of the physicians, with antimalarials being the most prescribed drugs (62.5%. Only 46.9% consulted another physician when they take ill, although 78.2% felt they needed a family physician. Many (23.8% of respondents treated their family members when last sick. The major factors considered by the respondents in choosing the physician they consulted were the specialty of the physician consulted (42.2%; the physician being in the same unit with them (38.5%, and friendship (15.6%. Four (3.7% of the respondents would not consider any particular factor for choosing a physician if they have to. Conclusion: This study showed that a large proportion of physicians self-medicate and a few have family physicians. Guidelines need to be instituted to regulate self-prescribing among physicians in Nigeria. The role of family physicians in primary care needs to be emphasized.

    Rafael Serrano Camargo, Miembro de Número de la Academia Colombiana de Historia, ha escrito esta biografía del eximio poeta José Asunción Silva.

    Ella nos estaba haciendo falta a los lectores del común. Se trata de un relato sencillo, muy bien hilvanado y en castellano del bueno, sobre la vida y obra del genial colombiano, sin honduras literarias, ni disertaciones sobre las escuelas que influenciaron su obra y, lo más encomiable, sin disquisiciones a propósito de los trastornos psíquicos que pudieron influir en su existencia, apagada por propia voluntad. Con lo anterior no pretendo menoscabar la importancia de quienes se han ocupado entre nosotros del poeta y del escritor como tales, ni la de los que han ahondado en su personalidad desconcertante.

    Entre los primeros se destacan Emilio Cuervo Márquez, Rafael Maya, Nicolás Bayona Posada, Roberto Liévano, Alberto Miramón, Carlos Arturo Caparroso y Héctor H. Orjuela. Entre los segundos, el propio Miramón, Edmundo Rico y Mauro Torres.

    The presentation covers an active and a passive infrared (IR) thermography for detection of delaminations in the radiator panels used for the International Space Station (ISS) program. The passive radiator IR data was taken by a NASA astronaut in an extravehicular activity (EVA) using a modified FLIR EVA hand-held camera. The IR data could be successfully analyzed to detect gross facesheet disbonds. The technique used the internal hot fluid tube as the heat source in analyzing the IR data. Some non-flight ISS radiators were inspected using an active technique of IR flash thermography to detect disbond of face sheet with honeycomb core, and debonds in facesheet overlap areas. The surface temperature and radiated heat emission from flight radiators is stable during acquisition of the IR video data. This data was analyzed to detect locations of unexpected surface temperature gradients. The flash thermography data was analyzed using derivative analysis and contrast evolutions. Results of the inspection are provided.

    Full Text Available Background: Though the fight against malaria continued to be on the increased, the disease still remains a major public health problem in many developing countries, especially in the rural areas. The extent of drug use and its effect is affected among other things by the pattern in which these drugs are prescribed by the health workers. Patients′ assessment of the quality of care depends on their ability to judge whether health care providers are adhering to the defined standard of care, hence it is necessary to assess the views of patients regarding the quality of care they received from the primary health care (PHC centers. Aim: This study aimed at evaluating consumer′s perception of the quality of malaria treatment in PHC centers of Jos and environs. Materials and Methods: Nine PHC centers were selected by multi-stage random sampling, five from Jos North and four from Jos South Local Government Areas of Plateau State. Patients of both sexes within the age range of 18 years and above who visited the PHC centers for malaria treatment were considered eligible to participate in the survey, provided that they were able to understand and respond to the interview questions. A semi-structured interviewer questionnaire which was adapted from previous health survey studies was administered to all the 249 eligible participants. The data collected were analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 20.0 software programmer. Results: The result showed that there were no consistently significant differences (P > 0.05 regarding patient satisfaction between male and female patients across selected items in the various domains, that is, irrespective of respondents′ sex, their perception of the quality of health services rendered by PHCs was similar. Conclusion: It was therefore concluded that there was similar satisfaction level between the male and the female, though some key health services were not readily available in the

    Entering the atmosphere of celestial bodies, spacecrafts encounter gases at velocities of several km/s, thereby being subjected to great heat loads. The thermal protection systems and the environment (plasma) have to be investigated by means of computational and ground facility based simulations. For more than a decade, plasma wind tunnels at IRS have been used for the investigation of TPS materials. Nevertheless, ground tests and computer simulations cannot re- place space flights completely. Particularly, entry mission phases encounter challenging problems, such as hypersonic aerothermodynamics. Concerning the TPS, radiation-cooled materials used for reuseable spacecrafts and ablator tech- nologies are of importance. Besides the mentioned technologies, there is the goal to manage guidance navigation, con- trol, landing technology and inflatable technologies such as ballutes that aim to keep vehicles in the atmosphere without landing. The requirement to save mass and energy for planned interplanetary missions such as Mars Society Balloon Mission, Mars Sample Return Mission, Mars Express or Venus Sample Return mission led to the need for manoeuvres like aerocapture, aero-breaking and hyperbolic entries. All three are characterized by very high kinetic vehicle energies to be dissipated by the manoeuvre. In this field flight data are rare. The importance of these manoeuvres and the need to increase the knowledge of required TPS designs and behavior during such mission phases point out the need of flight experiments. As result of the experience within the plasma diagnostic tool development and the plasma wind tunnel data base, flight experiments like the PYrometric RE-entry EXperiment PYREX were developed, fully qualified and successfully flown. Flight experiments such as the entry spectrometer RESPECT and PYREX on HOPE-X are in the conceptual phase. To increase knowledge in the scope of atmospheric manoeuvres and entries, data bases have to be created combining both

    2016-09-01

    Using high resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy we study the intercalation of hydrogen under graphene/Ir(111). The hydrogen intercalated graphene is characterized by a component in C 1s that is shifted -0.10 to -0.18 eV with respect to pristine graphene and a component in Ir 4f at 60.54 eV. The position of this Ir 4f component is identical to that of the Ir(111) surface layer with hydrogen atoms adsorbed, indicating that the atomic hydrogen adsorption site on bare Ir(111) and beneath graphene is the same. Based on co-existence of fully- and non-intercalated graphene, and the inability to intercalate a closed graphene film covering the entire Ir(111) surface, we conclude that hydrogen dissociatively adsorbs at bare Ir(111) patches, and subsequently diffuses rapidly under graphene. A likely entry point for the intercalating hydrogen atoms is identified to be where graphene crosses an underlying Ir(111) step.

    2008-01-01

    We present MIPS observations of the cluster A3266. About 100 spectroscopic cluster members have been detected at 24 micron. The IR luminosity function in A3266 is very similar to that in the Coma cluster down to the detection limit L_IR~10^43 ergs/s, suggesting a universal form of the bright end IR LF for local rich clusters with M~10^15 M_sun. The shape of the bright end of the A3266-Coma composite IR LF is not significantly different from that of nearby field galaxies, but the fraction of IR-bright galaxies (SFR > 0.2M_sun/yr) in both clusters increases with cluster-centric radius. The decrease of the blue galaxy fraction toward the high density cores only accounts for part of the trend; the fraction of red galaxies with moderate SFRs (0.2 < SFR < 1 M_sun/yr) also decreases with increasing galaxy density. These results suggest that for the IR bright galaxies, nearby rich clusters are distinguished from the field by a lower star-forming galaxy fraction, but not by a change in L*_IR. The composite IR LF...

    Full Text Available Abstract This study was carried out to investigate the landscape segments suitable for agricultural purpose in a volcanic land catena of Kerang Area on the Jos Plateau. A reconnaissance survey of the study area was carried out and three different slope segments were identified a total of 41 surface soil samples were taken from the three segments using a stratified systematic sampling. These soils were then analyzed for the physical and chemical properties. The result of the analyses revealed that the organic matter total nitrogen soil PH and exchangeable Ca Mg decline down slope however potassium K and sodium Na increase down slope. Co-efficient of variation of the soil properties for the three different slope segments showed low variability for the upper slope crest and shoulder exception being that phosphorus 43.10 and potassium 41.10 exhibited moderate variability. At the middle slope the co-efficient of variation exhibited by soil properties is predominantly moderate exception being that sodium 75 varies at high proportion at this slope segment. At the lower slope majority of the soil properties exhibited low variability. On the other hand total nitrogen available phosphorous and potassium have values of co-efficient of variation 23.10 65.60 and 23.10 respectively. This indicates that available phosphorus exhibited high variability while total nitrogen and exchangeable potassium have intermediate variability. The between or over all co-efficient or variation for the soil properties are predominantly moderate for most variable except PHH2O 11.80 and PH Cad2 10.60 that have low variability and phosphorous 78 has high variability. Differences in the degree of variation of soil variables from one segment to another can be attributed to soil erosion as affected by slope nature of soil parent materials and soil management technique. The study also revealed that some of the properties determining soil fertility total Nitrogen Available Phosphorus

His literary project is based on a region – the zone – which represents simultaneously geography and existence: it has a real point of reference, a portion of the Santa Fe riverside area of the Paraná river, and also it is a condition for the opportunity for a conversation between friends; a debate over the representational possibilities of language, the relationship between literature and reality, the twists and turns of philosophy. The characters, native to that region, appear throughout his work; they grow old along with their maker. Each novel completes fictional configurations, progresses both in its conflicts and in those of the group they make up. Their Leitmotiven are remembrance, memory, perception and representation of time in several manifestations. La grande, a posthumous novel, is considered a compendium of Saer’s works. It is composed of seven chapters named after the days of the week, from Tuesday to Monday. The last chapter, Monday, which Saer may have conceived as a coda, consists of a single line. His death does away with time bringing an end to his literary project. This paper comprises an analysis of temporal representation in the novel: the aging of the characters in the saga; the construction of space-time coordinates for narrative development, the formal means used for its representation, the embedding of the historical time through references to Argentina’s last dictatorship, and the functionality of the reference to the days of the week for identifying the respective chapters, both in the context of the novel and the author’s work as a whole.

    Full Text Available The present article is intended to carry out a measured analysis of Juan José as a popular dramatic phenomenon, as well as to determine to what extent this play drifts away from the «social drama» conception to fall within the melodramatic field. The reverse, however, has proved to be true with other works by Joaquín Dicenta: lacking in support from the audience and being largely neglected by the publishers, they manage to develop a deeper social commitment, as is the case of El señor feudal (1896 and, above all, Daniel (1907, which Dicenta himself considered the head of his dramatic production.Con el presente trabajo pretendemos realizar un análisis mesurado de Juan José como fenómeno dramático popular y determinar hasta qué punto se aleja del esquema de «drama social» para insertarse en el terreno del melodrama, de forma contraria a otras obras de Joaquín Dicenta que, sin haber contado con el apoyo del público y tras haber padecido una casi total ausencia en el plano editorial, sí desarrollan un compromiso social mucho más acabado; así es el caso de El señor feudal (1896 y, sobre todo, Daniel (1907, que el propio Dicenta consideraba como la mejor de sus obras.

    Full Text Available In this article, an analysis is made of a selection of short stories by Puerto Rican writer José Luis González (1926-1997, all of them dealing with the theme of Puerto Rican migration at the middle of the 20th century. As an introduction, there is an overview of the historical, social and political background that led to migration in Puerto Rico. Later on, causes and consequences of internal migration, that is to say, from the countryside to the cities, are presented. In the case of external migration, working conditions, economic stability, quality of life and identity of Puerto Ricans in the United States are also discussed. Finally, the discrimination suffered by immigrants in big cities through "cultural racism" —a concept that explains the creation of an imaginary around the Puerto Rican community, which facilitates the formation of a cheap labor force  hiding the true causes of their marginalization in education and employment fields— is addressed. In the conclusion, it is highlighted the importance of studying the works of José Luis González towards an understanding of the aspects that make up the phenomenon of migration and its effects and impact, not only in the Caribbean, but in the world at large.

    Full Text Available Information on turkey production and disease is rare in Nigeria, possibly because turkeys are seldom raised commercially. Also, turkeys require intensive husbandry and health care after hatching, which backyard poultry producers hardly provided especially, when raised in a disease endemic environment. In an attempt to document the diseases militating against turkey production in Nigeria, clinical and necropsy records were reviewed from veterinary practices in Jos and the Central Diagnostic Laboratory of the National Veterinary Research Institute (NVRI, Vom, Nigeria between 2009 - 2014. A total of 306 turkeys from backyard flocks were presented to the Veterinary clinics between 2009-2014 with various health complaints by backyard flock owners. Viral (Pox and Newcastle disease and parasitic (Helminthosis, Coccidiosis and Ectoparasitism diseases were mostly diagnosed. During the same period, 42 samples comprising 25 carcasses and 17 cloacal swabs were submitted for post mortem examination, virus isolation and microbiological test. Colisepticaemia, colibacillosis, pullorum disease, airsacculitis and infectious sinusitis are the main diseases diagnosed at post-mortem examination and microbiological test, while none of the samples were positive for influenza by virus isolation. It was observed that turkey rearing was small-scaled and kept as backyard poultry in North-central Nigeria. It can therefore be concluded from this study that turkeys raised in north-central city of Jos are affected by diseases ranging from viral to bacterial and parasitic, which can adversely affect productivity. This can therefore be improved upon by controlling the diseases mostly affecting turkeys.

    Full Text Available O lugar sem limites, romance publicado em 1966 pelo escritor chileno José Donoso, vem sendo objeto de inúmeras leituras, em geral, alegóricas. É mérito da crítica literária gay ter chamado a atenção para a possibilidade de uma leitura realista do romance, que leve a sério a condição de travesti do personagem central Manuela. Nessa linha, este ensaio recorre à idéia de abjeção para interpretar a maneira como o personagem reivindica positivamente o lugar marginal que lhe é assinalado. Nesse sentido, opõe-se a outras leituras, articuladas a partir da idéia de transgressão.The Place Without Limits, novel published in 1996 by the Chilean writer José Donoso, has come to be the object of countless readings, mostly allegoric. To gay literary critics, a realistic reading has become possible, which seriously reveals the main character Manuela's condition of being a transvestite. Following this line, the work turns to the idea of abjection to interpret the way in which the character vindicates positively the marginal place which has been assigned to him. In this sense, it is opposed to other readings, in terms of the idea of transgression.

    Full Text Available A principios del siglo XX en gran parte de América Latina se comenzaron a suceder importantes fenómenos asociados a la incipiente urbanización e industrialización en los modos de vivir y trabajar, y junto a ellas se desataron crisis sociales, políticas y económicas que no terminaban de controlarse cuando resurgían nuevamente. El nacionalismo y la educación emergieron como herramientas capaces de hacerles frente y en todo el continente se levantaron idearios que intentaron comprenderles, articularles y proyectarles. John Dewey les abordó desde Estados Unidos, Pedro Henríquez Ureña desde República Dominicana, México y Argentina, José Carlos Mariátegui hizo lo propio en Perú y José Vasconcelos desde México. A continuación se presentará el acercamiento que tuvo Vasconcelos a las nociones educación y nación, elaborado a partir de un proceso sistemático de análisis de contenido de su obra y que permite sopesar, como lo hicieron en su tiempo los jóvenes de Perú, Panamá y Colombia, a este intelectual como uno de los grandes maestros de la juventud de América.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo examina los orígenes de la narrativa fantástica colombiana, a partir de una relectura de la novela Una triste aventura de 14 sabios, del escritor José Félix Fuenmayor. Aquí expongo cómo la emergencia y consolidación de lo fantástico responde a una experiencia paradójica con la modernidad. De esta forma, muestro cómo el trabajo literario fantástico de Fuenmayor fue impactado no solo por una condición histórica conflictiva, sino también por la incorporación de diversos artefactos culturales a su estética literaria. This essay examines the origins of the fantastic literature in Colombia by analyzing José Félix Fuenmayor novel, Una triste aventura de 14 sabios. I argue that the emergence and consolidation of the fantastic have their origins in a paradoxical experience with modernity. I explore how Fuenmayor’s literary creation was not only impacted by a historically conflicting condition produced by the rise of modern subjectivity, but also by the incorporation of different cultural artifacts into his literary aesthetics.

  17. Visualizing Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy with Computer Animation

    Abrams, Charles B.; Fine, Leonard W.

    1996-01-01

    IR Tutor, an interactive, animated infrared (IR) spectroscopy tutorial has been developed for Macintosh and IBM-compatible computers. Using unique color animation, complicated vibrational modes can be introduced to beginning students. Rules governing the appearance of IR absorption bands become obvious because the vibrational modes can be visualized. Each peak in the IR spectrum is highlighted, and the animation of the corresponding normal mode can be shown. Students can study each spectrum stepwise, or click on any individual peak to see its assignment. Important regions of each spectrum can be expanded and spectra can be overlaid for comparison. An introduction to the theory of IR spectroscopy is included, making the program a complete instructional package. Our own success in using this software for teaching and research in both academic and industrial environments will be described. IR Tutor consists of three sections: (1) The 'Introduction' is a review of basic principles of spectroscopy. (2) 'Theory' begins with the classical model of a simple diatomic molecule and is expanded to include larger molecules by introducing normal modes and group frequencies. (3) 'Interpretation' is the heart of the tutorial. Thirteen IR spectra are analyzed in detail, covering the most important functional groups. This section features color animation of each normal mode, full interactivity, overlay of related spectra, and expansion of important regions. This section can also be used as a reference.

    We construct zero-temperature geometries that interpolate between a Lifshitz fixed point in the UV and an IR phase that breaks spatial rotations but preserves translations. We work with a simple holographic model describing two massive gauge fields coupled to gravity and a neutral scalar. Our construction can be used to describe RG flows in non-relativistic, strongly coupled quantum systems with nematic order in the IR. In particular, when the dynamical critical exponent of the UV fixed point is z=2 and the IR scaling exponents are chosen appropriately, our model realizes holographically the scaling properties of the bosonic modes of the quadratic band crossing model.

    Fowl pox is a viral disease of domestic and wild birds. The large size of the genome makes it a useful vector for recombinant DNA technology. Although the disease has been described in both commercial and indigenous chickens in Nigeria, data are limited on seroprevalence in free range chickens. Such data are, however, important in the design and implementation of fowl pox virus vector vaccine. We surveyed current antibody status to fowl pox virus in free range chickens by testing 229 sera collected from 10 villages in Jos North and Jos South LGA of Plateau State Nigeria. Sera were analyzed by AGID against standard fowl pox antigen. Fifty-two of the 229 (23%) tested sera were positive for fowl pox virus antibody, and the log titre in all positive specimen was >2. Thirty (21%) and twenty-two (27%) of the samples from Jos South and Jos North, respectively, tested positive. This was, however, not statistically significant (P = 0.30). Generally the study showed a significant level of antibody to fowl pox virus in the study area. This observation may hinder effective use of fowl pox vectored viral vaccine. Fowl pox control is recommended to reduce natural burden of the disease.

    Hondo vacío configura para la Academia Nacional de Medicina la ausencia definitiva del Académico Honorario José I. Barraquer M., fallecido súbitamente el 13 de Febrero de 1998.

    Pues él representaba no sólo una de las figuras más prestigiosas de la Oftalmología mundial, sino uno de los Académicos más asiduos en su asistencia y en su preocupación constante por los destinos de nuestra corporación, a la que dedicó gran parte de su intensa vida profesional.

    Nacido en Barcelona dentro una familia que ha aportado valiosos oftalmólogos y neurólogos a la ciencia mundial, el Profesor Barraquer -como todo el mundo lo denominaba en Colombia y en el extranjero- llega a Colombia en 1953 y lucha, en sus primeros 10 años, por hacerse a un prestigio nacional como oftalmólogo de primera línea.

    Se vincula desde muy temprano a la Clínica de MarIy donde adquiere una duradera y profunda amistad con el profesor Gonzalo Esguerra Gómez: a través de éste nacerán sus estrechos vínculos con la Academia, a donde ingresa como Miembro Correspondiente en 1970. Diez años después será designado como Miembro Honorario. En 1965 funda el Instituto Barraquer de América y poco después, en 1968, inaugura la Clínica Barraquer, instituto de servicio e investigación, pionera de las instituciones de su género en nuestro continente, que celebra hoy 30 años de labor ininterrumpida.

    Creador de una veintena de técnicas quirúrgicas originales e inventor de 45 instrumentos oftalmológicos, autor de casi trescientos libros y artículos, paseó su prestigio científico por todo al mundo, enorgulleciéndose de su colombianidad y haciendo relumbrar al país que lo había acogido como uno de sus hijos. Fue, además, un bastión de la ética y el rigor investigativo, que defendía con su voz discreta pero autorizada en cualquier ocasión.

    Full Text Available El breve poemario Aventuras Sigilosas (19451  ha sido señalado tempranamente por la crítica como un punto de inflexión importante en el desarrollo de la obra poética de José Lezama Lima, en la medida en que en aquél parece abandonarse el prurito esteticis- ta de su obra primera a favor de una más explícita concepción de la poesía como herramienta  de  conocimiento  trascendente  (Fernández,  1954.  Poemario  singular,  además, porque los once textos que lo componen trazan una secuencia temática común, definida en una suerte de prólogo antepuesto entre paréntesis por el autor y que narra el devenir de un personaje innominado desde que huye de la aldea materna «para hacer letras armadas» (Lezama, 1999: 91 hasta una oprobiosa agonía. Cada uno de los poemas del libro remite, por lo tanto, a alguno de los eventos o personajes de este recorrido, de modo que la obra adquiere un cariz narrativo que fuerza una interpretación de conjunto. Con todo, aquella debe decidirse por alguna de las múltiples orientaciones que la obra prodiga respec- to de cuál sería la experiencia dominante que determina la totalidad del recorrido, tarea nada sencilla en tanto la sobreabundancia figurativa del lenguaje que –como es sabido– ca- racteriza el discurso lezamiano, ofrece al intérprete una constelación de significados, evocaciones e indicios de toda índole que pueden hacer de pivote para múltiples lecturas. Esta dificultad señala, sin embargo, la posibilidad de una brecha en la aparente clausura hermenéutica impuesta por la secuencia descrita en el prólogo, en tanto si bien los poemas espejean entre sí como estancias diversas de un mismo espacio donde se escenifica el recorrido, cada uno de ellos posee a su vez una textura figurativa distintiva que permite tratarlo como una unidad independiente del conjunto.

    We have observed that C60(+) ions isolated in cryogenic matrices show distinct near-IR photoluminescence upon excitation in the near-IR range. By contrast, UV photoexcitation does not lead to measurable luminescence. Near-IR C60(+) photoluminescence is a one-photon process. The emission is mainly concentrated in one band and corresponds to (2)A1u ← (2)E1g relaxation. We present experimental data for the Stokes shift, power, and temperature dependencies as well as the quantum efficiency of the photoluminescence. Our findings may be relevant for astronomy, considering recent unequivocal assignment of five diffuse interstellar bands to near-IR absorption bands of C60(+).

    This note summarizes MD 307, performed on August 27 2015, during which we measured with beam the global apertures at 6.5 TeV with IR1 and IR5 squeezed to β* =40 cm and a half crossing angle of 205 rad. The measurement technique involved opening collimators in steps, while inducing beam losses at each step, until the main loss location moved from the collimators to the global bottleneck in one of the triplets. Measurements were performed in both beams and planes, and each measurement gave the minimum triplet aperture over IR1 and IR5. The results are in very good agreement with theoretical predictions. At the end of the MD, an asynchronous beam dump test was performed with all collimators moved in to so-called 2-σ retraction settings. This MD is one in a series meant to address various open points for the reach in β* in Run II.

    Full Text Available Besides poetic and prose writings, José Ángel Valente, bilingual poet and professional translator in many international institutions, practiced also the rewording of other people’s texts written in foreign languages. His works as translator or versionador were collected, after his decease, in the volume Cuaderno de versiones. This paper exposes Valente’s translating idea in relationship with any key notions in his aesthetic thought and with his own works. Also, it analyzes a group of examples of his labour as translator comparing these texts with their original version. That essay shows how translating supposes a new writing creative process. Taking this into consideration, we propose to give the same relevance to his production as a writer and as a translator, and to consider this last one as literary creation.José Ángel Valente, poeta bilingüe y traductor profesional en diferentes instituciones internacionales, frecuentó además de la creación poética y prosística la reescritura de textos ajenos procedentes de lenguas extranjeras. Su labor como traductor o versionador quedó recogida tras su muerte en el volumen Cuaderno de versiones. El presente estudio expone la concepción de traducción en José Ángel Valente en relación con una serie de nociones clave en su pensamiento estético y con su propia obra. Además, analiza un conjunto de ejemplos de su labor como traductor comparándolos con su original en los que se muestra cómo el proceso de traducción implica un proceso de reescritura creativa. A la luz de este análisis, plantea la consideración en pie de igualdad de su faceta de escritor y traductor, y la condición de creación literaria de esta última.

  17. WFC3 IR Image Quality

    Dressel, Linda

    2009-07-01

    The IR imaging performance over the detector will be assessed periodically {every 4 months} in two passbands to check for image stability. The field around star 58 in the open cluster NGC188 is the chosen target because it is sufficiently dense to provide good sampling over the FOV while providing enough isolated stars to permit accurate PSF {point spread function} measurement. It is available year-round and used previously for ACS image quality assessment. The field is astrometric, and astrometric guide stars will be used, so that the plate scale and image orientation may also be determined if necessary {as in SMOV proposals 11437 and 11443}. Full frame images will be obtained at each of 4 POSTARG offset positions designed to improve sampling over the detector in F098M, F105W, and F160W. The PSFs will be sampled at 4 positions with subpixel shifts in filters F164N and F127M.This proposal is a periodic repeat {once every 4 months} of the visits in SMOV proposal 11437 {activity ID WFC3-24}. The data will be analyzed using the code and techniques described in ISR WFC3 2008-41 {Hartig}. Profiles of encircled energy will be monitored and presented in an ISR. If an update to the SIAF is needed, {V2,V3} locations of stars will be obtained from the Flight Ops Sensors and Calibrations group at GSFC, the {V2,V3} of the reference pixel and the orientation of the detector will be determined by the WFC3 group, and the Telescopes group will update and deliver the SIAF to the PRDB branch.The specific PSF metrics to be examined are encircled energy for aperture diameter 0.25, 0.37, and 0.60 arcsec, FWHM, and sharpness. {See ISR WFC3 2008-41 tables 2 and 3 and preceding text.} 20 stars distributed over the detector will be measured in each exposure for each filter. The mean, rms, and rms of the mean will be determined for each metric. The values determined from each of the 4 exposures per filter within a visit will be compared to each other to see to what extent they are affected

    In this paper, we discuss optimization of the larger crossing angle Interaction Region of the Linear Collider, where specially shaped transverse field of the Detector Integrated Dipole can be reversed and adjusted to optimize trajectories of the low energy pairs, so that their majority would be directed into the extraction exit hole. This decreases the backscattering and makes background in 14mrad IR to be similar to background in 2mrad IR.

Os resultados, expostos e discutidos a partir de três categorias articuladoras, revelam que o esporte, em articulação com a técnica e a juventude, temas que frequentemente aparecem inscritos no mesmo nexo interpretativo em Ortega, pode ser lido no contexto de sua obra como uma espécie de metáfora significadora do caráter lúdico e não-utilitarista da vida humana, interpretação em conformidade com as grandes questões que delineiam o núcleo central do arcabouço filosófico orteguiano. Conclui-se destacando o pioneirismo das análises de Ortega sobre o nascente processo de expansão do esporte e sua crescente importância social nas primeiras décadas do século XX, assim como a necessidade de se considerar a juventude como problemática filosófica e sociológica.This paper presents results of a research whose aim was to investigate sport by the Spanish Philosopher José Ortega y Gasset. The sources are the twelve volumes of his Complete Writings. The results are exposed by three conceptual keys, and suggest that sport, linked to technique and youth, parts of the same reflection by Ortega, can be understood as a metaphor of the non utilitarian character of human life, an important theme of Ortega's Philosophy. The Avant Gard character of Ortega's Analysis about the Expansion of Sport in the first decades of Twentieth Century is underlined, as well as youth as philosophical and sociological subject.

  2. Matrix isolation studies with Fourier transform IR

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Green, David W.; Reedy, Gerald T.

    1977-01-01

    The combination of Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy with the matrix-isolation techniques has advantages compared with the use of more conventional grating spectroscopy. Furthermore, the recent commercial availability of Fourier transform spectrometers has made FT-IR a practical alternative. Some advantages of the FT-IR spectrometer over the grating spectrometer are the result of the computerized data system that is a necessary part of the FT-IR spectrometer; other advantages are a consequence of the difference in optical arrangements and these represent the inherent advantages of the FT-IR method. In most applications with the matrix-isolation technique, the use of FT-IR spectroscopy results in either an improved signal-to-noise ratio or a shorter time for data collection compared with grating infrared spectroscopy. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy has been used in the laboratory to study several molecular species in low-temperature matrices. Some species have been produced by high-temperature vaporization from Knudsen cells and others by sputtering. By sputtering, Ar and Kr matrices have been prepared which contain U atoms, UO, UO/sub 2/, UO/sub 3/, PuO, PuO/sub 2/, UN, or UN/sub 2/, depending upon the composition of the gas used to sputter as well as the identity of the metallic cathode. Infrared spectra of matrices containing these compounds are presented and discussed. (JRD)

    Escola Paulista de Medicina (EPM) was founded in 1933 and the first Professor of Neurology was Fausto Guerner, who could not effectively assume the teaching activities due to his premature death in 1938. Professor Guerner had had his neurological training at Paris. Professor Longo was his successor. Longo was one of the founders of Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria the foremost journal of neurosciences in Latin American. Longo died in 1967 and Professor Paulo Pupo succeeded him. Pupo introduced electroencephalography in Brazil. After his death in 1970, Professor Dante Giorgi succeeded him until 1974. Professor José Geraldo Camargo Lima took over the position after Giorgi's death. He created the Neurological Emergency unit, initiated the Post-Graduation in Neurology and divided the Discipline in specialized units. During the 1980's and until his retirement in 1995, EPM had become one of most important centers of Brazil training neurologists and researchers in neurological sciences.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available In order to illuminate some of the basic terms of translation theory, I explore two essays, José María Arguedas' "The Anguish of the Mestizo" and Walter Benjamin's "The Task of the Translator." I argue that the terms of translation theory can be changed by paying attention to the ‘replies' to European modernity made from outside of Europe, especially those replies that come as theory from the colonized, in this case in the form of Arguedas' work. In the conclusion, I juxtapose Arguedas' work on Quechua and Spanish to explore aspects of translation and linguistic invention at another point of domination: in this case, African-American English as described by James Baldwin. Through that, we can measure the potential of a network of histories constructed from Europe's others.

This dialogue surprises because it does not recall things which belong to the spirit, but, on the contrary, things which are related to the body. The present article tries to answer the following questions: 1 How does the mystic from the 16th century and the contemporary poet inspired by his works describe, both in their prose and poetry, the relationship between the body and the interior experience of a human being? Why did erotic love convert into the symbol of the deepest relationship between the soul and God? What are the reasons for the tendency of contemporary artists to reflect their inspirations towards the images of erotic acts by the mystical works?

As a convention representing the world, itself representing other worlds, Theater clarifies, in the same large, baroque Molière’s way, the same debate about truth and lie, Poetry and Philosophy confounded, light and shadow images altogether; Marinho’s liberating criticism converges with classical literary renovated canon as far as both destroy a schematic tradition, hostile towards margins, through lucid, uncertain questions.

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available A reconstruction of José Ortega y Gasset’s thought processes is proposed in this paper. Specific attention is given to the genesis both of the militant concept of the philosophy of life, and of the pedagogic role of Ortega in the historico-social context to which he belongs. Thus, this analysis focuses on the principal works of the author during his early period. The aim is to have the author’s continuity in thought and attitude emerge since these also characterise his writings and commitment in the following years. This reconstruction is based on: Ortega’s complete works as published, in part posthumously, in Revista de Occidente in the period 1932-1983; and a selection of critical studies which appeared from the 1950s to the present which support the relevance of the interpretation proposed here.

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available The essay “Monstruos y poder en El obsceno pájaro de la noche” studies the figure of the monster in the novel El obsceno pájaro de la noche by Chilean author José Donoso. Based on Michel Foucault’s definition of the monster developed in his work Los anormales, this analysis focuses on the way in which the figure of the monster, understood as a marginal entity, threatens social systems and structures by proposing a new discourse in which such conventions are denied, subverted and replaced. Therefore, the monster appears in essence as a transgressive figure, which can be understood as an attack on the establishment and furthermore as an allegory to those institutions and social values that frame modern societies and more specifically those established in Chile in the 1970s.

    Full Text Available De 1922 a 1938, as relações culturais entre o México e o Brasil conheceram um momento particularmente fecundo, devido em grande parte à atuação de dois intelectuais mexicanos: José Vasconcelos e Alfonso Reyes. A ausência de uma tradição de intercâmbio cultural entre o México e o Brasil fez do âmbito diplomático um espaço fundamental para a aproximação entre os dois países. Como representantes do governo mexicano - e transitando entre as fronteiras muitas vezes difusas da cultura e da política -, Vasconcelos, em 1922, e Reyes, de 1930 a 1938, estabeleceram uma ampla rede de contatos com intelectuais brasileiros e conseguiram fazer do México uma referência cultural e política importante no Brasil, durante o período.From 1922 to 1938, cultural relations between Mexico and Brazil had a particularly rich moment basically due to two Mexican intellectuals: José Vasconcelos and Alfonso Reyes. There was no tradition of cultural interchange between Mexico and Brazil; so the diplomatic sphere was transformed into a fundamental space for the approximation between these two countries. As representatives of the Mexican government - traveling between the frequently diffuse boundaries of culture and politics - Vasconcelos, in 1922, and Reyes, from 1930 to 1938, established a wide network of contacts with Brazilian intellectuals and managed to make Mexico an important cultural reference in Brazil, during that period.

    Full Text Available An important change took place in the Spanish publishing market during the first years of 20th century. The writers were highly affected by this change because they began to live off literature working as authors of plays and novels and writing in newspapers. In short, they became professionals of writing in a contemporary meaning. José María Salaverría is a good example. He worked in this context and he knew how important the new situation was for the authors. Furthermore, he wrote a lot of pages thinking about writes' role in the modern society and in the Spanish publishing market taking into account their activity as professionals and intellectuals.Durante los primeros años del siglo XX se produjo una importante transformación en el mundo editorial español que afectó también a los escritores. Comenzó para ellos un proceso de profesionalización que les iba a permitir vivir de la literatura en sus distintas manifestaciones: el periodismo, los libros, el teatro, etc. José María Salaverría es un buen ejemplo de la nueva situación del escritor porque desarrolló su actividad en este nuevo contexto siendo perfectamente consciente de ello. Además, dedicó muchas páginas a reflexionar acerca del papel del escritor en el mercado editorial y, en general, en la sociedad, considerando su actividad tanto desde el punto de vista del profesional como del intelectual.

  1. Chemical properties of urban waste ash produced by open burning on the Jos Plateau: implications for agriculture.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pasquini, M W; Alexander, M J

    2004-02-05

    Urban centres produce most of the world's waste and between a third and a half goes uncollected. The answer to the problem of waste disposal lies partly in agriculture, as waste can be extremely nutrient-rich. In the last decade there has been a tremendous increase in the developing world in total city area under informal food production and there are many examples of waste recycling onto the urban or peri-urban plots. Farmers on the Jos Plateau, Nigeria, have developed a successful soil fertility management strategy based on the combination of inorganic fertilisers, manure and urban waste ash. This study sought to provide some preliminary data on urban waste ash produced by open burning and used in farming in a developing country. Ash samples were collected from different locations around Jos and tested for C, N, pH, P, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Ni, Cd and Pb. It was found that ash is an effective liming material (because of the high pH, and high Ca, Mg and K contents), and has the potential to contribute significant quantities of micro-nutrients such as Mn, Zn and Cu. Ash, however, is far from being a homogenous material and its variability means that its fertilising potential will vary between batches and that, even if mean and median levels are low, there is the risk of the formation of localised areas of soil with excessive heavy metal contents (this is particularly the case with Pb). Further research is required to determine the plant-availability of these elements in the ash and to assess the wider environmental and health implications of uncontrolled, open burning of waste as a means of producing ash for agricultural purposes.

His work is vast and diverse, and this initial observation does not escape his narrative, which genre the write demonstrates more prolifically. Despite the apparent diversity, there is outstanding unity underlying Jiménez Lozano´s entire work. This unity lies not only on the constant return to the same matters, but also on the approaches or the reasons, from which his literary work begins. The writer reflects over his work and lets his ideas expand through the diverse manifestations of his ideas on prose. It is a talk about the rhetorical writing of this article, valuing the coherent existence between reflection and literary practice.José Jiménez Lozano es un escritor singular dentro del panorama literario hispánico de las últimas décadas.

In order to go in depth into the ethical dimension of Karl Marx's and the marxist tradition's thought, the text proposes several thematic lines of analysis with the aim of liberating, at the same time, the intelectual and political project of Marx from the various clichés associated to its traditional reception. The ethical field will appear as a space of mediation between knowledge and reality, disclosing itself as fundamental to marxism from a praxeological point of view. At the end of the article there is a critical dialogue with different ethical positions in the frame of contemporary marxism.A partir de una lectura crítica de El marxismo como moral, obra clásica de José Luis López Aranguren, éste artículo trata de interrogarse acerca de los fundamentos normativos y morales del marxismo.

    This paper highlights recent developments in resonant optical devices for infrared (IR) and mid-infrared (mid- IR) lasers. Sub-wavelength grating based resonant optical filters are introduced and their application in 2 μm thulium fiber laser and amplifier systems has been discussed. The paper focuses on applying such filtering techniques to 2.8 μm mid-IR fiber laser systems. A narrowband mid-IR Guided-Mode Resonance Filter (GMRF) was designed and fabricated using Hafnium(IV) Oxide film/quartz wafer material system. The fabricated GMRF was then integrated into an Erbium (Er)-doped Zr-Ba-La-Al-Na (ZBLAN) fluoride glass fiber laser as a wavelength selective feedback element. The laser operated at 2782 nm with a linewidth less than 2 nm demonstrating the viability of GMRF's for wavelength selection in the mid-IR. Furthermore, a GMRF of narrower linewidth based on Aluminum Oxide/quartz wafer material system is fabricated and tested in the same setup. The potentials and challenges with GMRFs will be discussed and summarized.

Pittier deja Costa Rica en 1905 para recorrer las Américas como botánico del Ministerio de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos durante 14 años. Se establece finalmente en Venezuela como funcionario del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores en 1919 y allí dirige y funda varias instituciones públicas y privadas, entre ellas el Parque Nacional que más tarde llevaría su nombre y el Herbario Nacional, hoy Instituto Botánico. En las décadas finales de su vida lleva a cabo la monumental obra de estudiar y clasificar más de 30.000 plantas en Venezuela.Pittier viajó ampliamente por Costa Rica y las observaciones de sus viajes, publicadas en diversos medios, incrementaron sustancialmente el conocimiento de la geografía y biología de Costa Rica. El ensayo que aquí reproducimos recoge observaciones de uno de esos viajes. En particular, captura los recuerdos de un centenario nicoyano, José Silverio Gómez, fallecido en 1904 a la edad de 103 años.

    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

    A combined scanning tunneling microscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, and density functional theory study of graphene on a Fe-Ir(111) alloy with variable Ir concentration is presented. Starting from an intercalated Fe layer between the graphene and Ir(111) surface we find that graphene-substrate interaction can be fine-tuned by Fe-Ir alloying at the interface. When a critical Ir-concentration close to 0.25 is reached in the Fe layer, the Dirac cone of graphene is largely restored and can thereafter be tuned across the Fermi level by further increasing the Ir content. Indeed, our study reveals an abrupt transition between a chemisorbed phase at small Ir concentrations and a physisorbed phase above the critical concentration. The latter phase is highly reminiscent of the graphene on the clean Ir(111) surface. Furthermore, the transition is accompanied by an inversion of the graphene’s induced magnetization due to the coupling with the Fe atoms from antiferromagnetic when chemisorbed to weakly ferromagnetic in the physisorption regime, with spin polarizations whose magnitude may be tuned with the amount of Fe content.

    Degenerate metal oxide nanoparticles are promising systems to expand the significant achievements of plasmonics into the infrared (IR) range. Among the possible candidates, Ga-doped ZnO nanocrystals are particularly suited for mid IR, considering their wide range of possible doping levels and thus of plasmon tuning. In the present work, we report on the tunable mid IR plasmon induced in degenerate Ga-doped ZnO nanocrystals. The nanocrystals are produced by a plasma expansion and exhibit unprotected surfaces. Tuning the Ga concentration allows tuning the localized surface plasmon resonance. Moreover, the plasmon resonance is characterized by a large damping. By comparing the plasmon of nanocrystal assemblies to that of nanoparticles dispersed in an alumina matrix, we investigate the possible origins of such damping. We demonstrate that it partially results from the self-organization of the naked particles and also from intrinsic inhomogeneity of dopants.

    2010-01-01

    The study of machine induced background (MIB), the radiation environment and beam dynamics of the LHC requires a detailed model of the machine tunnel, elements and electromagnetic fields. In this note, a specially created model of IR8 in FLUKA is described, including the tunnel, vacuum chambers, magnets, collimators, injection elements and shielding. The inclusion of all relevant machine elements in the LSS of IR8 results in a very flexible model suitable for a large variety of calculations and studies. The validation of the model is discussed, and some example applications described.

    2015-03-10

    We investigate the utility of compressive sensing (CS) to electro-optic and infrared (EO/IR) applications. We introduce the field through a discussion of historical antecedents and the development of the modern CS framework. Basic economic arguments (in the broadest sense) are presented regarding the applicability of CS to the EO/IR and used to draw conclusions regarding application areas where CS would be most viable. A number of experimental success stories are presented to demonstrate the overall feasibility of the approaches, and we conclude with a discussion of open challenges to practical adoption of CS methods.

    Full Text Available O texto discorre sobre a obra científica e as proposições de proteção à natureza do botânico brasileiro Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, um dos maiores conhecedores da flora brasileira e um dos pioneiros do conservacionismo no país. Analisa diversos pontos de sua trajetória de cientista, ativista e professor. A atenção recai especialmente sobre as suas três principais produções literárias, publicadas entre 1926 e 1935, nas quais focaliza a distribuição geográfica dos conjuntos de vegetação do Brasil e propõe diversos programas de aproveitamento racional e de preservação dos recursos naturais brasileiros. Mostra-se que as suas idéias estavam influenciadas pelos ideais de um estado forte capaz de construir uma nova identidade nacional, com base na riqueza da natureza brasileira. A conclusão é que as idéias de Sampaio foram avançadas para a sua época e que elas conservam grande parte de sua atualidade, mesmo depois de décadas de prevalência de uma ideologia desenvolvimentista em que ele e diversos cientistas naturais conservacionistas seus contemporâneos foram quase inteiramente esquecidos.The text discusses the scientific output and the proposals for nature protection by the Brazilian botanist Alberto José Sampaio (1881- 1946, one of Brazil.s leading plant scientists and one of the country.s pioneer conservationists.

    Highlights: • The WEST project requires a set of three infrared diagnostics. • The tungsten divertor will be monitored by the existing diagnostic renewed. • The antennas monitoring require the development of an innovative diagnostic. • A fiber bundle will be used as image transport for the antennas monitoring. • A wide angle tangential view of the upper divertor and the first wall is studied. - Abstract: To operate long plasma discharge in tokamak equipped with actively cooled plasma facing components (PFC), infrared (IR) thermography is a key diagnostic. Indeed IR data are used for both PFC safety monitoring, to avoid material degradation and water leak, and various physics studies on plasma-wall interaction. The IR monitoring is becoming even more crucial with today metallic PFCs. This is the case for the WEST project (Tungsten (W) Environment for Steady State Tokamak), which aims at installing a W divertor in Tore Supra (TS), in order to operate the 1st tokamak with a full W actively cooled divertor in long plasma discharges. The IR thermography system for the WEST project described in this paper will consist of a set of 3 different diagnostics: (1) Six cameras located in upper ports viewing the full W divertor, which reuse a part of the existing diagnostic of TS. (2) Five novel views located behind the inner protection panels for the antennas monitoring, based on an innovative imaging fibers bundle technology. (3) A tangential wide angle view located in a median port, for the upper divertor and first wall monitoring.

  4. Growth and termination of a rutile IrO2(100) layer on Ir(111)

    Rai, Rahul; Li, Tao; Liang, Zhu; Kim, Minkyu; Asthagiri, Aravind; Weaver, Jason F.

    2016-10-01

    We investigated the oxidation of Ir(111) by gas-phase oxygen atoms at temperatures between 500 and 625 K using temperature programmed desorption (TPD), low energy electron diffraction (LEED), low energy ion scattering spectroscopy (LEISS) and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. We find that a well-ordered surface oxide with (√ 3 × √ 3)R30° periodicity relative to Ir(111) develops prior to the formation of a rutile IrO2(100) layer. The IrO2(100) layer reaches a saturation thickness of about four oxide layers under the oxidation conditions employed, and decomposes during TPD to produce a single, sharp O2 desorption peak at 770 K. Favorable lattice matching at the oxide-metal interface is likely responsible for the preferential growth of the IrO2(100) facet during the initial oxidation of Ir(111), with the resulting coincidence lattice generating a clear (6 × 1) moiré pattern in LEED. Temperature programmed reaction spectroscopy (TPRS) experiments reveal that CO and H2O molecules bind only weakly on the IrO2(100) surface and LEISS measurements show that the oxide surface is highly enriched in O-atoms. These characteristics provide strong evidence that the rutile IrO2(100) layer is oxygen-terminated, and thus lacks reactive Ir atoms that can strongly bind molecular adsorbates. Oxygen binding energies predicted by DFT suggest that on-top O-atoms will remain adsorbed on IrO2(100) at temperatures up to 625 K, thus supporting the conclusion that the rutile IrO2 layer grown in our experiments is oxygen-terminated. As such, the appearance of only a single O2 TPD peak indicates that the singly coordinate, on-top O-atoms remain stable on the IrO2(100) surface up to temperatures at which the oxide layer begins to thermally decompose.

A philosophy of religion. The book adds to its view on the history and structure of the religious fact a comprehensive inquiry about several philosophical approaches to religion, according to a well known framework inspired by Dilthey. Finally, it sketches an accurate sustaining the philosophical plausibility of the belief in God, wich deals a lot of problems concerning philosophy of religion (pantheism, providence, physical and moral evil, etcetera.. Backed by a consistent knowledge of the scholastic tradition and modern philosophy (from Kant to the main currents of the twentieth century, Caffarena offers a serious and nuanced programme wich advocates the possible combination of the cautioness for reason with the encouragement of hope.

    Tras recordar la intensa labor intelectual desarrollada por José Gómez Caffarena, se analizan la estructura y tesis fundamentales de su obra El enigma y el misterio. Una filosofía de la religión. A las consideraciones sobre la historia y estructura del hecho religioso se agrega un amplio estudio sobre las diversas posiciones ante lo religioso, conforme a una triple tipología inspirada en Dilthey, para articular finalmente una elaborada propuesta sobre la plausibilidad filosófica de la fe en Dios, en la que se abordan muy diversos problemas de la filosofía de la religión (panteísmo, providencia, mal físicio y moral, etc.. Con un sólido conocimiento de la tradición escolástica y de la filosofía moderna (de Kant a las principales tendencias del pensamiento del siglo XX, Caffarena ofrece una sobria y matizada propuesta en la que defiende la posible conjugación de las cautelas de la razón con el aliento de la esperanza.

    Full Text Available The relationship between mysticism and poetry has become an almost inevitable topic in any study on the work of José Ángel Valente. However, we must be careful when studying this relationship if we want to avoid an erroneous interpretation. We cannot take as starting point an a priori identification of the question about the Sacred (so important not only in contemporary poetry, but also in contemporary art with the belief in a real numinous presence that we find in the mystic tradition. The poetry of Valente is better understood if we consider an experience of the Sacred being originated not only from the sacred presence but also from its absence. This experience of the Sacred cannot be conceived apart from poetry itself (a poetry that appears in the philosophical and religious horizon of God’s death. The search for the Sacred is developed through three great paths in the work of Valente: the matter, the body (love and eroticism and the poetic word (and also the silence.La vinculación entre la mística y la poesía se ha convertido en un tema casi obligado para cualquier análisis crítico de la obra de José Ángel Valente. Sin embargo, cabe preguntarse si una interpretación apresurada de este vínculo no puede llevarnos a lecturas erradas de la compleja escritura del poeta, cuando se parte de una identificación a priori entre la pregunta por lo sagrado que caracteriza a buena parte del arte contemporáneo (no sólo a la poesía y la certeza de la presencia numinosa en la tradición mística. Trataremos de mostrar en este ensayo cómo la escritura valentiana se entiende mejor desde una experiencia de lo sagrado que nace tanto de la presencia como de la ausencia y que es inseparable de la propia escritura (una escritura que no puede evitar inscribirse en el horizonte filosófico y religioso de la muerte de Dios.

    Full Text Available The F-(Pb, Zn, Ba district of Sierra de Baza are a (Southeastern Spain is mainly constituted by fluorite-(galene stratiform and stratabound mineralizations which are included in Carbonate levels of Ladinian-Carnian age. These levels also contain vein mineralizations but only in certain zones as de Calar de San José and the Calar de Santa Bárbara. This paper deals with the main structural and mineralogical characteristics of the vein mineralizations and their relations with the geological context evolution. Special attention is given to the tectonic and the spatial association with the stratiform and stratabound, mineralizations of sedimentary/diagenetic character. Two types of vein mineralizations may be distinguished : one type is represented by small "in situ" remobilizations, from the stratiform and stratabound mineralizat ioos, which have been formed during the final stages of alpine deformations; the other one has been formed before Alpina Orogeny and probably in direct relation with an intratriassic tectonic phase.

    Full Text Available The origins and cultural affiliations of the first sedentary agricultural and pottery-producing communities in the southern Maya lowlands remain hotly debated. Here, we describe the discovery of a new early farming settlement at the small site of Buenavista-Nuevo San José on Lake Peten Itza in northern Guatemala. Evidence for a pre-Mamom occupation (1000–700 BC at this site was found in the deepest fill layers overlying bedrock, including pottery diagnostic of this time period and the remains of a post-in-bedrock dwelling. Because the evidence for this early settlement is from secondary contexts and because four radiocarbon dates cover a broad chronological range, the best evidence for the pre-Mamom occupation consists of the ceramics recovered in the excavations. The closest links of the pre-Mamom pottery at Buenavista-Nuevo San José are with the Eb complex at Tikal and the Cunil complex of Cahal Pech, Belize, suggesting strong interactions between these early groups. The discovery of pre-Mamom pottery at Buenavista also suggests that the early farmers were more widespread than previously suggested. Furthermore, the presence of Olmecoid symbols incised on the pre-Mamom pottery at Buenavista-Nuevo San José indicates that these early communities were immersed in broad pan-Mesoamerican spheres of interaction.

The two factors may be found in the identification between the two narrators and in the two most emphasized possibilities in the interpretation of the novel, or rather, subjectivity and national identity. Agualusa’s novel may also be defined as belonging to ‘minor literature’, as conceived by Deleuze and Guattari’s text Kafka: Toward a minor literature. According to these authors, in minor literature, each subject is inscribed in and connected with politics, a highly strong factor in The Book of Chameleons.O presente trabalho visa a apontar a presença do duplo e da duplicidade no romance O vendedor de passados, do escritor angolano José Eduardo Agualusa, que podem ser encontradas desde a identificação entre os dois narradores do texto até as duas mais insistentes possibilidades de leitura da obra: uma referente à subjetividade e, a outra, relativa à identidade nacional.

    Full Text Available In two emblematic texts–“Estado de la geografía del Virreinato de Santafé” (1807 and “Del influjo del clima sobre los seres organizados” (1808–Francisco José de Caldas constructs a spatial narrative for the New Granada where the site of siege is localized at the center of the imagined map of the Vice-kingdom. The outside of civilization are the lowlands–and more radically, the jungle–with its mulatto, zambo, black, and indigenous populations, which always already threaten to take over the inside, the place of enunciation, a tempered climate of altitude, similar to that of Europe, inhabited by fantasized whites or light-skinned Hispanized/able mestizos. In creating a besieged geography, Caldas also invents a lasting paradigm whereby the Colombian state exercises warfare on its own territory as a means of actualizing its genetic narrative. Thus, this ideological construct sets in motion the menace of invasion as a ready-made dispositive that actualizes the polarities of Caldas’s exclusionary map.

Signed and dated in 1776, the series is constituted of 14 large canvases. However, from an inventory of 1801 of the goods belonging to the parish church of Chihuahua (now the cathedral, it is believed this series originally had 15 canvases, and was hung in the nave of the church. The series is quite singular for different reasons. First of all, in the less glorious moment of the city was the series patronized to one of the most famous painter in the Viceroyalty. Also, the iconography of the paintings is quite complex. Although one canvas seems to be missing from the original series, all of the remaining canvases have two, and sometimes three, secondary scenes. The purpose of the article is to analyze this important series and try to understand how it functioned from the inside and the outside: how it should be read and how it is related to some pious exercises realized within the church.

    Full Text Available Au delà de la simple narration d’un parcours spatial, les récits de voyage de Camilo José Cela ont une forte dimension éthique. Le vagabondage célien est la manifestation d’une certaine vision du monde et de l’homme construite autour de trois notions clés: renoncement, vitalité et utopie. Le voyageur se veut ainsi à l’image de cet idéal célien ; sa vie est réglée par une déontologie précise : le détachement, la solitude, la communion avec la nature, l’éloignement de la ville et l’attachement au monde rural sont les plus manifestes. En dernière instance, le vagabondage, éthique exigeante et réservée à quelque êtres d’exception, est la voie qui mène à la liberté et au bonheur.

    Human chlamydiosis is a zoonotic disease of avian origin caused by Chlamydia psittaci. The highest infection rates have been detected in parrots (Psittacidae) and pigeons (Columbiformes), the latter most frequently carry the genotypes B and E. These genotypes have been shown to also infect humans. Because pigeons (Columba livia) cohabit with humans in urban areas, C. psittaci present in the dust from dry feces of infected pigeons may be transmitted by inhalation and represent a significant public health problem. Between 2012 and 2013 a total of 120 fecal samples were collected from pigeons at four public places (Plaza de la Cultura, Parque Morazán, Parque Central de Guadalupe, Plaza de las Garantías Sociales) in San José, Costa Rica. A nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to amplify a region of the outer membrane protein A gene of C. psittaci. Only one sample was positive in PCR and the positive sample was further subjected to sequencing and genotyping. Sequencing identified this sample as C. psittaci genotype B. This study is the first report to show the presence of this organism in pigeons of Costa Rica, and shows that the infected pigeons may represent a significant risk for humans who visit public places that are inhabited by pigeons.

    2010-03-01

    Full Text Available Contemporary spanish poetry tends to be divided into two big groups: “seventies'poetry” or “Novísima” and “Poetry of experience”. This clasification is due not only to some generalizing studies promoted by the institution, but also to the desire of the poets to create a group in which they can be attached to and in which they are able to differ from the feared “other”. Such dual caracterization has prompted numerous debates over the belonging and appropriateness of those categories, wich remain in the perspectives that are used to approach the phenomenon now a days. In this way, the aesthetic proposal of the poet José-Miguel Ullán, traditionally considered as a member of the generation known as the seventies, can be taken as an example of an author that can't be clasified in any of the mentioned groups, and because of it, as a starting point for a possible revision and dismountage of a history that has been partially told: the history of spanish contemporary poetry.

    Full Text Available José Mª Díez-Alegría es deudor del tiempo que le precede, es decir, de la España de las anteriores décadas, que le marcan con una impronta que posteriormente fecunda y se manifiesta entre 1955-1982, recordando y haciendo valer acontecimientos claves como el Concilio Vaticano II o la crítica progresiva al nacionalcatolicismo, reflejadas también en algunas participaciones en las “Conversaciones de Gredos”. Filósofo, teólogo, y jurista, Díez-Alegría es un ejemplo sobresaliente de un sector del catolicismo español que se opone a la función de la Iglesia como aparato ideológico y legitimador del bloque dominante y busca incansable el diálogo entre católicos y marxistas con el fin de alcanzar una convergencia y colaboración mutuas.

Alabardas, alabardas, Espingardas, espingardas has only three chapters. Nevertheless, the book edition also presents the Saramago’s diary, with notes referring to the novel, Günter Grass’ illustrations and texts of other writers. The novel focuse on theme of violence, war and the manufacture and the arms trade. In this article, however, we aim an analyses of the editorial paratexts of Alabardas edition. The proposal, in this sense, aims, having the paratext definition presented by Gérard Genette (2009, the investigation of a reading possibility of Alabardas not [only] as novel, but also as manifest. This possibility can be founded in the polysemic character of the editorial paratexts, which provide news perspectives for reading and interfere in the production of meanings in the text reading, as well in the conception of the editor as adapter, considering one of the adaptation concepts approached by Linda Hutcheon (2013.

    1997-01-01

    A growing number of nonprofit organizations are being fined for violations of IRS regulations following IRS audits of their tax-deferred annuity (TDA) plans. To ensure that their organizations can withstand the scrutiny of an IRS audit, TDA plan administrators must ensure that plans meet IRS regulations and be prepared for IRS audits. Documentation--particularly of the TDA plan itself, and procedures related to salary reduction programs, compensation limits, excess deferrals and other excess contributions, loans, and distributions--must be comprehensive and in compliance with IRS regulations.

  12. Suppression of superconductivity in Nb by IrMn in IrMn/Nb bilayers

    KAUST Repository

    Wu, B. L.

    2013-10-10

    Effect of antiferromagnet on superconductivity has been investigated in IrMn/Nb bilayers. Significant suppression of both transition temperature (Tc) and lower critical field (Hc1) of Nb is found in IrMn/Nb bilayers as compared to a single layer Nb of same thickness; the suppression effect is even stronger than that of a ferromagnet in NiFe/Nb bilayers. The addition of an insulating MgO layer at the IrMn-Nb interface nearly restores Tc to that of the single layer Nb, but Hc1 still remains suppressed. These results suggest that, in addition to proximity effect and magnetic impurity scattering, magnetostatic interaction also plays a role in suppressing superconductivity of Nb in IrMn/Nb bilayers. In addition to reduced Tc and Hc1, the IrMn layer also induces broadening in the transition temperature of Nb, which can be accounted for by a finite distribution of stray field from IrMn.

  13. Studying the nonlinearity in Sonic IR NDE

    2017-02-01

    Sonic IR Imaging combines pulsed ultrasound excitation and infrared imaging to detect defects in materials. The sound pulse causes rubbing due to non--unison motion between faces of defects, and infrared sensors image the temperature map over the target to identify defects. It works in various materials, including metal/metal alloy, ceramics, and composite materials. Its biggest advantage is that it's a fast, wide area NDE technique. It takes only a fraction of a second or a few seconds, depending on the thermal properties of the target, for one test over a few square feet. However, due to the nonlinearity in the coupling between the ultrasound transducer and the target, the repeatability has been an issue, which affects its application. In this paper, we present our study on this issue in Sonic IR.

    Indigo Systems Corporation has developed a family of standard readout integrated circuits (ROIC) for use in IR focal plane arrays (FPAs) imaging systems. These standard ROICs are designed to provide a compete set of operating features for camera level FPA control, while also providing high performance capability with any of several detector materials. By creating a uniform electrical interface for FPAs, these standard ROICs simplify the task of FPA integration with imaging electronics and physical packages. This paper begins with a brief description of the features of four Indigo standard ROICs and continues with a description of the features, design, and measured performance of indium antimonide, quantum well IR photo- detectors and indium gallium arsenide imaging system built using the described standard ROICs.

    We explore fermion RG block-spinning transformations on the lattice with the aim of studying the IR structure of gauge theories and, in particular, the existence of IR fixed points for varying fermion content. In the case of light fermions the main concern and difficulty is ensuring locality of any adopted blocking scheme. We discuss the problem of constructing a local blocked fermion action in the background of arbitrary gauge fields. We then discuss the carrying out of accompanying gauge field blocking. In the presence of the blocked fermions implementation of MCRG is not straightforward. By adopting judicious approximations we arrive at an easily implementable approximate RG recursion scheme that allows quick, inexpensive estimates of the location of conformal windows for various groups and fermion representations. We apply this scheme to locate the conformal windows in the case of SU(2) and SU(3) gauge groups. Some of the reasons for the apparent efficacy of this and similar decimation schemes are discuss...

    The beetle Melanophila acuminata detects forest fires from distances as far as 80 miles away. To accomplish this, the beetle uses highly specific IR receptors with a diameter of approximately 15 μm. These receptors are mechanoreceptors that detect deformations induced by the absorption of radiation. Although the detection mechanism is understood in principle, it is still unclear how the beetle reaches such high sensitivity. In this work, we present the biomimetic approach of an uncooled IR sensor based on the beetle's receptors. This sensor is based on a fluid-filled pressure cell and operates at room temperature. Upon absorbing IR radiation, the fluid heats up and expands. The expanding fluid deflects one electrode of a plate capacitor. By measuring the change in capacitance, the volume increase and the absorbed energy can be inferred. To prevent the risk of damage at high energy absorption, a compensation mechanism is presented in this work. The mechanism prevents large but slow volume changes inside the pressure cell by a microfluidic connection of the pressure cell with a compensation chamber. The channel and the compensation chamber act as a microfluidic low-pass filter and do not affect the overall sensitivity above an appropriate cut-off frequency. Using MEMS technology, we are able to incorporate the complete system into a silicon chip with an area of a few mm2. Here, we show a proof-of-concept and first measurements of the sensor.

    Due to the complexity in combustion processes of IR decoys, it is difficult to describe its infrared radiation characteristics by deterministic model. In this work, the IR decoys simulation based on particle system was found. The measured date of the IR decoy is used to analyze the typical characteristic of the IR decoy. A semi-empirical model of the IR decoy motion law has been set up based on friction factors and a IR decoys simulation model has been build up based on particle system. The infrared imaging characteristic and time varying characteristic of the IR decoy were simulated by making use of the particle feature such as lifetime, speed and color. The dynamic IR decoys simulation is realized with the VC++6.0 and OpenGL.

    Full Text Available Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP has become the preferred treatment method for hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease. Despite technological progress this technique continues to account for the greatest morbidity and mortality caused by digestive endoscopic procedures. ERCP carries a risk of pancreatitis, perforation, hemorrhage, cholangitis and cardiopulmonary events occurring in upto 10% of patients in referral centers, implying a mortality of up to 1%, not including therapeutic failures or the need for re-intervention. A greater mortality rate has been demonstrated in prospective studies rather than in retrospective studies, but overall, the number of complications described in the literature is much lower than the number of complications that actually occur. A descriptive prospective study was conducted at San José Hospital from April 1, 2006 to April 30, 2007 in patients who underwent an ERCP and had a 1-month follow-up. A total of 381 patients were included; 9 (2.3% were excluded, and of the remaining 372 there was an overall success in 79.6% of cases, 8.3% had a second intervention, 7.6% developed complications (pancreatitis, perforation, hemorrhage, cholangitis, pain, intolerance to sedatives, and cardiopulmonary events, and 4.3% were failed ERCP studies. The mortality rate of the ERCP procedure was 0.8%. ERCP-related complications were determined at a teaching center, and this suggests the need to implement centers of excellence in order to improve the efficacy of the procedure.La colangiopancreatografía retrograda endoscópica (CPRE se ha convertido en el procedimiento terapéutico por excelencia de la vía biliopancreática.

    Full Text Available In México, discharge of waste water not treated is a common problem; this is the case of the Lerma River, where the original clean water contribution of the Almoloya–Lerma–San Bartolo timber–roof system, located in the valley of Toluca, State of México, was replaced by the wastewater of the valley. The attempts to clean the water before their spill have been unfruitful and this has caused the present anaerobic conditions of the river in its entire route including the first receiving stage that is the José Antonio Alzate Dam (PJAA, becoming a potential source of diseases and a useless water body. In this work we evaluate the treatment efficiency of experimental waste water pond system. The treatment system was constructed with 5 screens which formed 6 internal channels and it had an operation in continuous form by 26 weeks, providing it with continuously polluted water of the Lerma River. We found that the efficiency of reduction of the organic matter reported as BOD5 was 83% and it is carried out in the first channel after 7 days of hydraulic retention verifying that the channels do not work like lagoons in series. With the collected data we calculated, through the application of design equations, the factor of decay of organic matter "k" and the number of dispersion "d", specific for the type of treatment and environmental conditions of the site. The required surface of treatment calculated to reach the efficiency of reduction of the BOD5 obtained experimentally. Thus, a surface of: 1 281.6 hectares distributed in 13 lagoons that can deal with a volume 8 646, 70 m3/h was determined. Since this was a bigger surfaces than that of the dam, the available area was evaluated to make a proposal closer to reallity.

  13. Mass media and Christian evangelisation in the digital age: Towards sustaining ‘mission’ in the Catholic Archdiocese of Jos

    Full Text Available Christianity has heralded a phase of religion that thrives on mission – the mandate to ‘evangelize’ or reach out to people who do not know Jesus Christ, his divinity and work of salvation. By the twentieth century when the global community began to grapple with the realities of modernity – part of which was a corresponding rise of immorality and loss of religious identity, even among traditionally Christian societies – the strategy of ‘mission’ changed to accommodate new ways of transmitting the word of God that would pierce the hearts of humans. In this information regime which offers the print, broadcast and social media platforms the impact of these on the new evangelisation is visible. The Pentecostal churches which are offshoots of the Catholic and Protestant churches have swiftly embraced this mass communication – aided technique for achieving mission thereby attracting unprecedented followership. The Catholic Church - although it imposes a strong, virile and seemingly unshaken image – is losing a huge number of its estimated one billion population, and if its media culture on mission does not change it would be a drawback. Drawing on the growing body of work which compares Catholic approach with Pentecostal mission strategy, the paper examines this distinction, and analyses the approach to the use of the media as a strategy of ‘mission’ in the Catholic Archdiocese of Jos – where Catholicism started in Northern Nigeria. Based on the analysis of mass media use in the Archdiocese, this paper argues that its communication strategy is, undoubtedly, driving the new evangelisation but needs to expand its media infrastructure for optimum results. The paper suggests that ‘mission’ can be strengthened through a robust and media-centred strategy.

    Full Text Available This research work was conducted in the municipality of Santiago de Machaca which is the first section of the province, José Manuel Pando, it is located at the southeast of the Department of La Paz, at a distance of 205 km, from the city of La Paz. The objectives of this research were to: determine the biomass and floristic composition according to vegetative site, the stocking of native grasslands and the chemical composition of native prairie. The results were the following: the biomass composition and floristic composition is diverse, (35 native forrage species were identified in the vegetative site pampa, Marsh (11, hillside (18 and Hill (33. The capacity of stocking ability of (DC a stocking of native grasslands, Urtica flabellata (Itapallu (2.46; Bromus catharticus (bromus (1.26; Trifolium pratensis (Layulayu (1.38; Iberis sp. (tears of Virgin (1.55 and Hordium muticum (tail of mouse (1.64. Regarding chemical composition, the forage species with higher crude protein content of (% is Urtica flabellata (Itapallu, Bromus catharticus (bromus, 181,66 is 25.77%, forage species with higher energy content Kcal100/g Kcal100/g. and forage specie with higher content of iron mg / 100 g was Iberis sp. (Tears of Virgin, 20,97 mg / 100g. These identified species should be preserved and disseminated, since they showed greater amount of production and quality in content of nutrients required by animals. The conservation of these native species identified improve weight gain, consumption of native forage throughout the year, the chemical content, these native species studied, improve quality and cover the requirements from consumption of dry matter and nutrients required by animals. Finally this condition will positively affect the economy of the producers. It is recommended that these native species should be preserved and disseminated on the Prairies, since they showed greater amount of production and quality in content of nutrients required by animals.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Glucose intolerance is observed more in patients with HCV infection compared with control subjects with liver disease, Initial studies suggested that Hepatitis C virus infection may be an additional risk factor for the development of diabetes mellitus. This study was therefore carried out to determine the correlation of HCV infection and diabetes. Methods Three hundred (300 confirmed type 2 diabetic patients were screened for hepatitis C virus antibodies at the Plateau state specialist hospital, Jos, using Grand diagnostic test strip. Questionnaire comprising of age, sex, family history on diabetes, duration of disease and marital status were issued to subjects. Results Overall result showed that the prevalence rate of HCV infection was 33(11%. In response to diabetic status, females subjects had a higher prevalence of 178(59.3% compared to males 122(40.7%. Those aged 47–57 recorded the highest seroprevalence 10(30.3% to the Hepatitis C Virus, while Patients without family history of diabetes showed a higher seroprevalence of 13(39.4%. Subjects who never had any blood transfusion recorded a prevalence rate of 6(18.2%. Marital status showed no significant difference [(P = 0.275; P.0.05]. Considering duration of developing diabetes, patients within the range of 1–10 years diabetic status recorded the highest prevalence rate 25(75.8% compared to other ranges considered. Conclusion This study hence, suggests a relatively strong association between HCV infection and diabetes, this therefore call for an urgent approach strategy in the control and management of this disease of the endocrine system.

    Full Text Available Abstract Slum is a squatter settlement that is formed as a result of infiltration of people particularly into urban areas. The study aimed at identifying slum characteristics and how they contribute to environmental deterioration within the study area systematic sampling technique was adopted to select households for the study. In analyzing the problems of the selected slums in Jos a total of 347 well structured questionnaires were distributed to selected households in the study area after the survey instrument was protested effectively in a pilot survey which involved 50 questionnaires were administered and were recovered for the analysis. The results revealed that most of the household size in the selected slums is between 5 to 9 persons the number of persons per room falls between 6-7 persons per room this indicate that the average occupancy ratio in the selected slums is quite high most of the buildings in the selected slums were built between 11 to 15 years ago similarly the predominant dwelling type in the selected slums are compounds with shared facilities. The toilets are in very bad conditions the bathrooms are in fairly good conditions. Most of the dwellings were built with cement blocks and roofed with corrugated iron roofing sheets as indicated by the data collected. The walls of most of the dwelling in the selected slums are in bad condition while the roofs and painting of most dwelling. It was observed that major source of water supply in the selected slums is hand dug well and the other sources of water supply include streams tap rainwater and buying from water vendors. The study therefore recommends among other things the transformation and new development alternatives in the planning.

    Full Text Available La cerca de continuïtats espacials que coadjuvin a la cohesió social i urbana en moltes ciutats llatinoamericanes, ens enfronta inevitablement amb factors de segregació soci-espacial que determinen les dinàmiques d’ús i gaudi d’aquests territoris urbans. Aquests factors de segregació de les ciutats principals i en conseqüència dels territoris metropolitans, han anat construint barreres invisibles que amb el temps i les maneres de producció i control, s’han convertit en part del paisatge i estructura tant de la ciutat com de les diferents maneres de vida que la componen. Posar en valor una ciutat com San José de Costa Rica, principalment en termes de la cohesió urbana, és posar en valor el seu desenvolupament històric, econòmic i urbà, així com les dinàmiques socials i el seu reflex en l’apropiació i conformació de la ciutat. Avui trobem, com es va plantejar en la seva primera expansió, un centre urbà amb escàs habitatge, els centres de control polític i econòmic molt dispersos i una funció econòmica i de mercat principal, alimentat per una activitat cultural centralitzada. És així com els districtes en entorn del centre es presenten com els espais habitacionales de la ciutat, projectant de manera molt clara les diferencies soci-econòmiques i d’estrats socials que componen en ser costarricense urbà d’avui.

  20. A orgia perpétua: Flaubert e Madame Bovary. Translated by José Rubens Siqueira

    Full Text Available A presente resenha visa analisar a nova tradução de La orgía perpetua, realizada por José Rubens Siqueira, e publicada em 2015. Publicado originalmente em 1975, La Orgía perpetua é o terceiro livro de crítica de Vargas Llosa; antes ele já havia escrito Bases para una interpretación de Ruben Darío (1958 e García Márquez: historia de un deicídio (1971. É comum a crítica afirmar que La Orgía perpetua é uma das portas de entrada para os estudos flaubertianos, o que não deixa de ser uma verdade, mas essa obra também pode ser lida como um “confessionário crítico”, já que Llosa assume nesse livro a influência recebida de Flaubert. Assim, La orgía perpetua pode interessar tanto aos estudiosos da obra de Gustave Flaubert, quanto aos estudiosos de Vargas Llosa. Por A orgia perpétua se tratar de um livro de crítica literária e não de ficção, encontramos um texto em que Vargas Llosa não explora tanto os recursos estilísticos da língua espanhola, mais especificamente do espanhol “callejero” peruano, como o faz em livros como As cidades e os cachorros. Desse modo, ao analisarmos a tradução de Siqueira, percebemos que esse tradutor se ateve ao estilo claro e direto da prosa ensaística de Vargas Llosa.
