  2. Myth in María Zambrano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alejandro Rodríguez Díaz del Real

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available The interest in Greece that Jose Ortega y Gasset and María Zambrano share is clear and demonstrable even if a reader is only a little familiar with these authors. Less similar is the approach they take to myth as a specific subject in their writings. Unlike Ortega's relative indifference - if one dares think anything could be indifferent to him - Zambrano takes myth as what Duch calls an "in-wording" element by linking it with autobiographical forms of writing, such as her characteristic deliriums. She re-envisions mythical figures in an intimate way, as in her play La tumba de Antígona. This article examines some of the key relationships of Greek myth with the "razón poética" in Zambrano's writing, focusing primarily on El hombre y lo divino (1955.

    Full Text Available Maria Zambrano é a intelectual espanhola mais importante do século XX. Discípula de Ortega e Zubiri, Zambrano foi capaz de captar o que melhor possibilitaria à formulaçáo de um pensamento, ao mesmo tempo, autônomo e profundo com relaçáo aos seus mestres. Republicana, enfrentou os horrores da Guerra civil espanhola e suas conseqüências sem, no entanto, deixar-se abater. Foi precisamente no exílio que nasceu a obra de que tratarei neste artigo: Filosofia e poesia (México: Fundo de Cultura, 2000. Meu objetivo maior é demonstrar, à luz do pensamento de Zambrano, em que medida é possível o postulado de uma razáo poética capaz de superar a ruptura estabelecida, com o surgimento do pensamento filosófico entre irracionalidade (poesia e razáo (filosofia, contribuindo, assim, para o estabelecimento de um campo comum em que o pensamento filosófico, mais do que expressáo das estruturas últimas da realidade (o Ser, é criaçáo e abertura para o inesperado (Devir.

    Full Text Available Esta propuesta consiste en enjuiciar a través de mi texto dramático María Luisa (Ediciones Unicornio, 2013 a María Luisa Milanés(1893-1919 como figura del Bayamo de la naciente República, que se convierte en figura indiscutible de las letras femeninas cubanas. Tomo como punto de partida su opacado perfil histórico-literario, resultado de un contexto sociocultural hostil, decidido a ignorarla.María Luisa es una invitación, también, para los entendidos en literatura al análisis de un incipiente y malogrado discurso narrativo y un más elaborado discurso lírico. Es una pretensión de rescatar a esta escritora en los‹‹ estudios de género››; que mi texto funcione como marco teórico para una profundización crítica, área que carece de un verdadero juicio literario milanesiano . Es un intento por enriquecer la bibliografía al respecto, con un enfoque sociocultural integrador, donde la proyección intragenérica predominante en la obra de María Luisa Milanés transite desde la historia cultural microsocial hacia el discurso femenino, también conformador de lo nacional.

  7. From Princesa to Princess with a Prince: 1994 and 2001 Fernanda's Stories

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Polina Shvanyukova

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available In an analysis of what presents itself as a cinematic transposition of a literary text, it is difficult to break away from the “binary oppositions [...] literature versus cinema, high culture versus mass culture, original versus copy" (James Naremore. In the case of Princesa (2001, directed by Henrique Goldman, it is questionable whether we can speak about an adaptation at all. As Goldman himself stated, he got the idea for making the film after reading the eponymous 1994 book written by Fernanda Farias de Albuquerque in collaboration with Maurizio Jannelli. In his film, Goldman has made drastic changes to the autobiographical story of Fernanda, the Brazilian transsexual prostitute who travels to Europe in order to earn money for her sex-change operation. However, the film was in fact dedicated to the memory of the real Fernanda, who had passed away in the meantime. In this contribution, the two works will be examined in their relationship to a third source-text by paying special attention to the processes of worldmaking as developed in Nelson Goodman's seminal 1978 book and expanded in the 2010 collection of essays Cultural Ways of Worldmaking. Media and Narratives.

  8. Luisa's Ghosts: Haunted Legality and Collective Expressions of Pain.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Krauss, Amy

    2018-04-25

    Feminist health care providers have debated the efficacy of the decriminalization of abortion in Mexico City. Luisa, a counselor in a private clinic, suggested that while the law has expanded the visibility of, and access to safe abortion, it has also called forth "other ghosts." In this article, I take Luisa's critical perspective as a starting point for examining ongoing criminalization and moral stigma as forms of haunting that arise in the wake of the Mexico City abortion policy. Drawing on ethnographic research, I explore how Luisa's ghosts materialize in the embodied- affective relations between patients in new legal clinics. Women who attend public clinics negotiate moral stigma along with religious and familial pressures in the ways they suffer, as well as normalize abortion as a painful experience. Rather than approach pain as purely a sign of victimization, I suggest that its expression constitutes an effervescent collectivity between women in the clinic, making explicit, while at the same time dissipating, an intractable moral-affective knot that might otherwise be ignored.

  10. María Zambrano in front of the Ruins of the City

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrea Luquín Calvo

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This article purports to elucidate the meaning of the city, in the political literature of theSpanish philosopher María Zambrano in the context of modern political philosophy. The meanings about the different roles played by the city in the philosophy of Zambrano, shows a theory that points to its origin, as a place of revelation and human care, and its destruction by an instrumental reason that prepares people to be removed if history demands it. The city, in hands of a sovereign power that rules under the logic of domination and control, is uninhabitable. Zambrano proposes the idea of a new city whose heart is conformed by the person and democracy, so that it could allow for reappearance of the city as a creation, as a space of projection and care of the freedom of every of its habitants.

    Full Text Available Maria Zambrano reflects upon some of the problems she has been always interested in: Christianity and Mysticism with especial emphasis on the divine processions, the Incarnation of Christ, the Virgin Mary, the liturgy among other personal experiences. In these letters the pursuit for the Holy Spirit as the foundation of knowledge is remarkably noticeable, so that it could be argued that this experience contributes and gives rise to the rejection both of rationalism and of materialism of the philosophy.

La vicinanza del pensiero e del sentimento religioso che le caratterizza è senz'altro un motivo d'indagine. Questa importante corrispondenza è inoltre studiata in relazione alla filosofia di Simone Weil, figura mediatrice che unisce le due autrici.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rosa Rius Gatell

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, Rosa Rius thinks about feminine identity and its history, based on the expressions of freedom of two authors living four centuries apart: the Venetian humanist Moderata Fonte (1555-1592 and the Malagan philosopher María Zambrano (1904-1991. The fact that these women’s freedom is taken as one of their main identifying elements, and straining the historical action of this freedom, unforeseen by the establishment, does not at all imply that the undeniable discrimination inflicted upon women throughout centuries is forgotten or goes on without protest.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Luisa Valenzuela’s neglected short story “Puro corazón” ('All Heart' uses surreal imagery and plot to write about the increasing violence in Buenos Aires during the time immediately prior to the Dirty War ( la Guerra Sucia . By mimicking a police report, Valenzuela’s story manages to reproduce the experience of censorship and repression that denied the fate of the disappeared. This article shows how the story forges ludic connections between the human body (especially hearts, blood, and cardiologists, the censorship and repression in the early 1970s in Argentina, and the discourse that marked the official response to los desaparecidos , the disappeared.

  20. Rasgos de la «Lebensphilosophie» en el pensamiento de María Zambrano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cristina de la Cruz Ayuso

    2018-01-01

    Full Text Available El artículo analiza los puntos de encuentro del pensamiento de María Zambrano con la «Lebensphilosophie», concepto bajo el que se reúnen diferentes corrientes filosóficas surgidas en Alemania y Francia en el siglo XIX, y de la cual Unamuno es considerado uno de sus máximos representantes en España, conjuntamente con Ortega y Gasset. Algunos rasgos de la «Lebensphilosophie» están presentes en algunas categorías del pensamiento de María Zambrano. La primera parte de este trabajo aborda esta cuestión y se detiene, en segundo lugar, en su noción de piedad que, en su obra, queda definida como un saber de trato específico con la realidad, con lo diferente, con el misterio. La autora va descifrando el sentido de su noción de piedad a través de continuas referencias a la herencia de una dilatada cosmovisión religiosa y en su despliegue se pone de manifiesto su estrecha relación con algunas de las principales motivaciones y preocupaciones intelectuales de la «Lebensphilosophie».

  1. El sujeto Alma en el discurso filosófico de María Zambrano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sally Abdalla Wahdan

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how the Spanish thinker, María Zambrano, transfigures the concept of the "soul" to define and understand the idea of the subject in her contemporary philosophical discourse, developed through the essays she began to write since the 30th of last century. Through her critical thinking of the European rationalism and her adopting of a vision based upon a mediating solution to the old quarrel between Philosophy and Poetry, she reveals the adscriptions of the meaning of the soul and portrays the way or the experience that lead to soul consciousness. The study will shed light on these adscriptions and the confluence of that meaning with the poetic conception within the contemporary context of the Spanish philosopher and of other thinkers, as well.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Renato Boccali

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Following the dreamlike symbolic image of lilac plant we will retrace the exile pathway of María Zambrano from Europe to Latin America and back again through inextricable memories of historical events, personal experiences and dreams. We will examine the existential and philosophical experience of exile as death and rebirth (desnacimento. Thanks to distance and separation from motherland, Zambrano could go through the radical dereliction that brought her to the inner solitude of the self. So that she could discover the function of delirium as a salvific force: the resistance of the past overcoming the ruins of history and opening to a new future. Therefore the misfortune of exile turns into good fortune and the outcasts become, in Zambrano’s words, “the beatified persons (los bienaventurados”.

  5. Escritura y ciudad en María Zambrano: reencuentro de una amistad perdida tras la derrota sufrida

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrea Luquin Calvo

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available En este trabajo abordamos la reflexión que sobre el acto del escribir y la escritura realiza María Zambrano en sus escritos "Del escribir" y "Por qué se escribe", para relacionarlos con uno de los espacios más importantes para la pensadora: la ciudad. Aunque Zambrano no desarrolló una "teoría" sobre la ciudad propiamente dicha, su significado e imagen se encuentran en gran parte de su obra. La escritura, como logos que existe físicamente en el mundo, construye la ciudad: ese lugar de la palabra y de la libre expresión que nos protege. Una ciudad que parece derrotada ante la desaparición del pensamiento creativo, no instrumental, en el espacio público y que exige su reencuentro.

  7. La “Carta abierta a Alfonso Reyes sobre Goethe” de María Zambrano: ¿un caso de irracionalismo poético?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andreas Kurz

    2014-06-01

    This article shows that the 1954 dispute between María Zambrano and Alfonso Reyes about Goethe has to be seen as a consequence of the studies of the Spanish philosopher in the field of the interrelation between poetry and philosophy. In the dispute, Reyes seems to represent a rational position, while Zambrano appears to follow an irrational aesthetics originated by German and English romanticism. When applying Karl Popper’s ideas about rationalism and irrationalism, the result is a different constellation: Zambrano as representative of rational and open thinking, Reyes the promoter of a poetic system based solely on the concept of “great man”, developed in literary criticism by Paul Bénichou, which enabled him to see Goethe as a personality that fuses life and work. This interpretation of Goethe is, by the way, predominant in Spanish-speaking cultures, as Udo Rukser showed in his classical study.

  9. Los imperativos del exilio (A propósito del centenario de María Zambrano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sánchez Cuervo, Antolín

    2004-12-01

    Full Text Available Few vital and intellectual trajectories have been so bound to the experience of the exile like that of María Zambrano (1904-2004. Far from being drained in a simple biographical circumstance, it was this experience the constant nourishment of an entire reflection from and on the margin, in answer to the crisis of the western subjectivity. The memory, understood as an interpolating rescue of their lost faces, veiled under the overpowering violence of the European history, and against the grain always of all objective or discursive understanding of the past, plays a part singly inside this reflection. It is for it that centennials as that of María Zambrano invites, not already to remember one of the most important philosophical works in the Spanish exile of 1939, but also to revise the same sense of the anniversaries. To discover, under the objectivity of the same ones, something more than history.

    Pocas trayectorias vitales e intelectuales han estado tan ligadas a la experiencia del exilio como la de María Zambrano (1904-2004. Lejos de agotarse en una mera circunstancia biográfica, fue esta experiencia el abono constante de toda una reflexión desde y sobre el margen, en respuesta a la crisis de la subjetividad occidental. La memoria, entendida como un rescate interpelador de sus rostros perdidos, velados bajo la violencia avasalladora de la historia europea, y a contrapelo siempre de toda comprensión lineal, objetiva o discursiva del pasado, desempeña un papel singularmente relevante dentro de esta reflexión. Es por ello que centenarios como el de María Zambrano invitan, no ya a rememorar una de las obras filosóficas más importantes del exilio español del 39, sino también a revisar el sentido de las efemérides. A descubrir, bajo la objetividad de las mismas, algo más que historia.

    Lorena Grigoletto

    2018-02-01

    With this objective, their reflection about the complex articulation and declination of the history of philosophy in literary genres, as places of its intimate drama, flows in the analysis of two specific and, in some respects, similar forms of literature: the symphony (Vasconcelos and the confession (Zambrano. The latter is nothing new in the literary scene but, recognized as true of Western thinking method, is proposed as a conditio sine qua non of its authentic rebirth. Symphony and confession, which in their analogical and musical process would realize the ancient Pythagorean inspiration, insist on the need to invalidate that world devoid of subject, to reveal the immobilism and the absolutism of the concept and to rethink the tragedy, as a genre and in its historical manifestations, to forestall its ending. They share, therefore, the same purpose: the fulfillment of an ‘ethical Hystory’.

    2016-01-01

    La filosofía de María Zambrano busca la sintonía en un lenguaje que se dirige más hacia el interior de las cosas y la intimidad del propio hombre más que a la superficialidad y a la apariencia de lo real, es lo que ella define como razón poética. Teniendo en cuenta que el lenguaje siempre distorsiona la realidad debemos buscar la claridad, volver a la inocencia de las cosas. Para ella la realidad esta en una mezcla de lo racional, lo emocional y lo afectivo, le da mucho valor a la intuición,...

  12. Imparare a guardare. Luisa Bonesio racconta come il Villaggio Morelli a Sondalo sia opportunità di turismo colto

    Elisabetta Maino

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available Heritages of exceptional value are often not properly understood, even if they are part of our everyday life. This is the case of the Eugenio Morelli sanatorium village. The experience of a research group, of which Luisa Bonesio is part, shows how those places can be “viewed consciously” through a cultural path, where “experts” and “inhabitants” mutually interact and exchange their own experiences, thus broadening knowledge from the local to the international level. Photographs drive this renewed wise and educated perception, and create a sort of touristic itinerary within the ex sanatorium, inviting to take a tour, and giving new life to things of the past, since new eyes now can see them.

  13. El sueño creador de María Zambrano. Filosofía, tiempo y tragedia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pau Pérez Navarro

    2001-04-01

    Full Text Available En el texto se nos invita a adentrarnos en el mundo literario y filosófico de una autora que siempre ha evadido todo tipo de formalismos. El autor recoge el espíritu que puede mantener vivo el pensamiento de María Zambrano sin reducirlo a la tentación de la complitud y la totalidad, resistiéndose, en definitiva, a la idea de la Verdad sobre el Ser, a la idea de una filosofía que pueda trascender la mediación del tiempo. El texto busca la complicidad con la autora, a veces hasta la mimesis, para desentrañar la estrecha relación que hay entre filosofía, tiempo y tragedia. Frente a la razón racional de la filosofía postcartesiana, la autora apuesta por una razón poética en la que la conciencia trágica es un hacer-pensar que no impone su ley y desborda la conciencia pura de la filosofía que siempre se convierte en instrumento de poder.

  14. La pintura como metáfora y máscara: la concepción del arte en María Zambrano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Heura Posada

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo se aborda el pensamiento de María Zambrano como una losofía inspiradora para la ciudadanía de hoy. Dentro de los múltiples temas tratados por la autora, la pintura gura entre ellos como “un lugar privilegiado donde detener la mirada”. La mirada, un aspecto primordial para la autora, se entrena y nos revela aspectos de la vida que no podemos retener sin detener el tiempo en la contemplación de ciertas imágenes, como para ella será la imagen de Santa Bárbara del Maestro de Flémalle en el mueso del Prado. Años más tarde, después de su largo exilio, María Zambrano escribe sobre lo que ha representado para ella mirar a Bárbara “en su Ser, estando en ella misma”. La pintura, nos dice Zambrano, es agua y “nace de las cavernas, en la noche perenne, al resplandor desigual del fuego, adherida a la roca desnuda”. Pensar y contemplar la pintura es hacerlo acerca del origen de lo humano, del trabajo y de su condición de posibilidad, así como de su porvenir. El tiempo para contemplar la pintura nos devuelve un tiempo humanizado donde es posible el pensamiento y la proyección, con sentido, de la vida humana. Desde el pensamiento de la autora podemos hacer conexiones hacia otros pensadores, a menudo más conocidos y difundidos que ella, a través de algunos conceptos como el tiempo, la persona, la razón (poética, la democracia o el arte.

    Full Text Available Filosofía y educación comparten para María Zambrano un mismo objetivo: acercar al hombre al ser, a su ser. Porque hacerse como hombre es conocerse, es cumplir la vocación. Y este desvelamiento sólo acontece por revelación poética, sólo se efectúa en el momento de tránsito en el que el hombre se siente, más allá de los límites del espacio y el tiempo, en otro sustrato, donde puede ser libre. El maestro debe hacer escuchar al alumno el rumor interno de su vocación, debe servir de guía en este camino de retorno al ser originario.

  20. Mobility and the Modern Intellectual: Translated Images from Early 20th-Century Literary Works in Spanish by Carmen Lyra and Luisa Luisi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Laura Kanost

    2018-02-01

    Full Text Available This essay juxtaposes original translations of contrasting images from the novel En una silla de ruedas [In a Wheelchair] by Costa Rican writer Carmen Lyra and Poemas de la inmovilidad [Poems of Immobility] by Uruguayan writer Luisa Luisi to reveal how representations of intellectuals who are paralyzed might complicate discourses of the artist, social hygiene, and eugenics in early 20th-century Spanish America. Lyra portrays her protagonist's paralysis as a tragedy, but his disability is also the source of social mobility that allows the novel to depict marginalized members of Costa Rican society. Luisi contests modernista aesthetics of perfect forms, countering with a multifaceted exploration of inner space enabled by physical stillness. Through their depictions of hospitals, asylums, and sanitariums, both writers bear witness to bodies the modernizing project would prefer to hide, and imagine alternative forms of progress.

  1. El cine como transgresión: deseo, política y feminismo en Camila (María Luisa Bemberg, 1984

    Full Text Available [es] El objetivo general de este artículo es realizar un análisis de Camila (1984 de María Luisa Bemberg, obra clave para la historización de la relación entre cine y feminismo en la Argentina. El objetivo específico es investigar la construcción de la figura de mujer moderna como sujeto deseante en la transposición de los acontecimientos decimonónicos al film. La hipótesis que guía el trabajo es que el vínculo entre deseo y política aparece expresado bajo una forma cinematográfica convencional orientada por una revisión crítica del drama histórico. Con ese propósito, indagamos el film a partir del horizonte de emancipación abierto por el movimiento de mujeres y la cultura cinematográfica. Teniendo en cuenta las modificaciones operadas en la adaptación de los sucesos documentados, exploramos el repertorio figurativo desde el foco puesto en la relación de la protagonista con la moral católica y los lazos familiares, que perfilan a Camila O’Gorman como un personaje avant la lettre. [en] The general objective of this article is to analyze María Luisa Bemberg’s Camila (1984, a fundamental film about the relationship between cinema and feminism in Argentina. The specific objective is to investigate the construction of the figure of modern woman as a desiring subject in the adaptation of nineteenth-century history to the film, whose transposition refers to events of 1847, at the time of the government of Juan Manuel de Rosas (1835-1852. The hypothesis that guides the work is that the link between desire and politics is expressed in a feminist cinematographic form, oriented by a critical revision of the historical drama. With this purpose, I am interested in investigating the film from the horizon of emancipation opened by the women’s movement and the cinematographic culture connected with the “second wave”.

    Full Text Available Luisa Valenzuela (Buenos Aires, 1938 es una de las voces femeninas más reconocidas de las letras latinoamericanas: narradora inteligente y penetrante en sus juicios, a través de sus relatos manifiesta el espíritu libre y propositivo de la literatura latinoamericana femenina. En este trabajo se analizan los cuentos “Cuchillo y madre” y “Tango”, en los que es posible identificar los espacios de lo femenino, que suelen ser muy reducidos, aparentemente. La mujer ha tenido que luchar para que éstos se abran e, incluso, se reconozca la manera en que contribuye a la creación de los mismos. Los espacios que le han sido vedados han sido definidos, paradójicamente, desde la perspectiva que el hombre tiene sobre lo femenino. El espacio femenino por antonomasia es el hogar, al menos desde la visión patriarcal que priva en Latinoamérica. Es en él donde la mujer aprende a reconocer el mundo y a sí misma. Su esencia se mira a través de un cedazo, se hila en un bastidor, se guisa a fuego lento con las limitaciones de una sociedad masculinizada.

    Full Text Available The Judgment of the Court of Justice of March 8th, 2011 (C-34/09 case Ruiz Zambrano against l'Office National de l'Emploi (ONEM of Belgium highlights an issue, already debated by the jurisprudence and the doctrine, concerning the right of residence of nationals of a third country who are the parents of a children national of a Member State. The approach taken in this case by the ECJ is novel in part due to the own approach to the questions and especially by the arguments around the status of citizen of the EU and the notion of citizenship itself. The key issue of the suit seeks to ascertain the impact of the European Union nationality of some underage children, who have not exercised their right of free movement, on the residency status (irregular of the parents who are nationals of a third country. If until now the premise that "it would be necessary to cross the border" to be covered by Community law was true, the sentence Ruiz Zambrano comes to question this premise to cover a “purely domestic” situation under the protective umbrella of the citizenship status and therefore extending the scope of application of Community law. This Judgment implies a review of one of the favorite topics for scholars -the notion of citizenship- to, from a different perspective, think about the impact of the status of citizen of the Union in the scope of application of Community law.

  9. Cuando dialogan dos Antígonas: La tumba de Antígona de María Zambrano y Antígona furiosa de Griselda Gambaro

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available Antígona ha sido un tópico por más de 2.000 años, participando de una historia que siempre puede ser reconocida. Tanto la Guerra Civil española como la dictadura argentina vieron surgir Antígonas en busca de justicia. A partir de los trabajos de María Zambrano y Griselda Gambaro, este artículo busca rehabilitar discursivamente estas versiones. Por un lado, la filósofa española nunca regresó del exilio iniciado en 1939 y defendió hasta el final los valores republicanos. Cuando asumió que su expatriación era irreversible, ingresó en un exilio profundo del cual Antígona revela lo esencial, pasando de la "privación" a la "revelación" tanto en un modo filosófico como en el poético, tanto en sus ensayos como en su única pieza teatral, La Tumba de Antígona [1967], una significativa metáfora de la guerra fratricida y del exilio. Por otro, Antígona furiosa [1986] de Gambaro, reescribe la tragedia de Sófocles cuando denuncia el terrorismo de estado argentino en una furiosa Antígona. Gambaro, hermana y madre de desaparecidos de la guerra sucia eleva su grito por justicia en nombre de la fraternidad humanaAntigone has been a topical figure for more than 2,000 years. She plays a part in a story that one can always identify. Spanish Civil War and Argentine dictatorship saw the birth of many Antigones seeking justice. Starting from the M. Zambrano and G. Gambaro's creations, this work rehabilitates the speech and the incarnations of the Iberian and Ibero-american Antigone. On the one hand, Spanish philosopher María Zambrano never came out of the exodus which began in 1939, and she defended the values of the Republic all the way. Once she acknowledged that expatriation was irreversible, she entered a profound exile of which Antigone reveals the essence, going from "deprivation" to "revelation" in a philosophical as well as a poetical manner, both in her essays and in her unique play, La Tumba de Antígona [1967], a striking metaphor

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available El texto propone un acercamiento a la apuesta feminista presente en la obra cinematográfica de la directora argentina María Luisa Bemberg. Para ello reconstruye el contexto de recibimiento del denominado feminismo de segunda ola en Argentina y la cercanía que tuvo Bemberg con el mismo. En esta línea, se recorre la preocupación de la directora por develar en su obra la forma en que se ha construido el otro femenino en América Latina —en condiciones de subalternidad, debilidad y dependencia—. La reflexión crítica de Bemberg iba de la mano de un llamado al reconocimiento en condiciones de igualdad entre lo masculino y lo femenino, y de activar un proceso de auto-conciencia en las mujeres para que recocieran el lugar y roles sociales que se les había entregado y ellas reproducían.

    Full Text Available La literatura y el viaje, como todo el mundo reconoce, nacen juntos como experiencia y mirada hacia el otro. La temática del viaje, entonces, es una de las características de la literatura en general y más en la literatura hispanoamericana que considera precisamente el Diario de viaje de Cristóbal Colón como uno de sus textos fundadores asimismo como las Crónicas de Indias. Se trata de un género fronterizo que levanta un conjunto de cuestionamientos y cuyo hibridismo, como escribe Biagio D’Angelo (2009: 11, 14 «amplía las fronteras imaginadas de la ficción literaria. [...] El viaje desconcierta, desestabiliza y hace temblar la identidad de cada sujeto. Nos mudamos en nosotros mismos a través de otro(s». En esta ocasión se propone el estudio de La Habana (1844, un libro de viaje, escrito por la Condesa de Merlin (La Habana, 1789 – París, 1853 y la reescritura de un cuento de hadas «Si esto es la vida, yo soy Caperucita Roja» de Luisa Valenzuela (Buenos Aires, 1938, que pertenece a la colección «Cuentos de hades», publicada en Simetrías (1993. Al estudiar las características de este género, muy distinto en los dos siglos considerados, se observa la importancia del tiempo como elemento que acompaña la perspectiva sentimental y existencial que caracteriza el punto de vista de ambas autoras.

    Full Text Available The reader is invited to enter into the literary and philosophical world of an author that has always rounded all kinds of formalisms. The author recovers a spirit necessary to keep Maria Zamabrano's thought alive without reducing it to a temptation of completeness and totality. It resists the idea of a Truth about Being, and it resists the idea that philosophy is capable of trascending the mediation of time. This paper is an accomplice, even plays some mimesis with it's author in the disentangling of that close relationship between philosophy, time and tragedy. Standing in front of postcartesian rational rationality, the author brings forth a poetic rationality in which tragical consciousness involves a doing-thinking that does not impose its law and overcomes the pure consciousness of philosophy. A philosophy which always turns into a power instrument.

    Examining the seminal judgment of the European Court of Justice (the ‘ECJ’) in the Ruiz Zambrano case (C‑34/09,EU:C:2011:124) and its progeny, this paper is to illustrate the fact that in hard cases of constitutional importance the ECJ follows an incremental approach. This means ,in essence, that the ECJ does not take ‘longjumps’ when expounding the rationale underpinning the solution given to novel questions of constitutional importance. On the contrary, the persuasiveness of its argumentati...

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available This essay intends to investigate interpretations and rewritings of Sofocle’s Antigone in the second half of 20th Century from a gender perspective. In particular, it analyses four thematic features departing from Sofocle’s text and aims to a progressive inclusion of gender issues into a queer point of view: the unburied dead, the conflict between Antigone and Creon, women’s ‘philia’ on stage, Antigone as a ‘metoikos’ with fluid identity. It examines works of female authors and scholars such as Judith Butler, Martha Nussbaum, Grete Weil, and María Zambrano.

O despertar para a análise dessas obras e seus personagens surgiu a partir da leitura do livro España, sueño y verdad, da pesquisadora e ensaísta María Zambrano(1965, no qual ela trabalha o ethus espanhol construído a partir de três personagens literários: Don Quijote, El Cid e Don Juan. Com as análises, esse artigo explora questões entre personagens e autores na recente produção literária espanhola, nas quais o fotográfico se revela como elemento enunciador e narrativo e conclui que, a literatura recente mantém considerável distância da ambiguidade social presente na obra e nos personagens épicos analisados por Zambrano.

    Full Text Available Some relevant reflections on the University ‘ethos’ are distinguished in the context of the 1939 Spanish Republican exile. In particular, reflections of philosophers as Fernando de los Ríos, Joaquín Xirau and José Gaos, exponents of a knowledge rooted out in search of new springs of power. It is also taken into account the case of María Zambrano, whose apparent disinterest for the university question is an indication of a knowledge coherent with his exile and uncompromising to the academic discipline, of a knowledge that has resigned to power and demands a new ‘ethos’.Se apuntan algunas reflexiones relevantes sobre el ethos universitario en el contexto del exilio republicano español de 1939. En concreto, de autores como Fernando de los Ríos, Joaquín Xirau y José Gaos, exponentes todo ellos de un saber desarraigado en busca de nuevos resortes de poder. Se tiene además en cuenta el caso de María Zambrano, cuyo aparente desinterés por la cuestión universitaria es indicio de un saber coherente con su exilio e irreductible a la disciplina académica, de un saber que ha renunciado al poder y exige un nuevo ethos.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    María Binetti

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available For some decades, feminist thinkers such as Luce Irigaray, Luisa Muraro and Rosi Braidotti —among others— have tried to reconstruct the ontological assumptions of a language independent of the abstract phallogocentric logic, emerging by metonymic mediation from the maternal-material-matristic substrate, in essential continuity with that origin and immediate connection with life. In the context of this new maternal-matrix-material symbolic, this article aims to read Mistralian poetics, conceived and nurtured by the same matrix from which life is born.

    2002-04-01

    Lead isotope study has been performed on massive sulphide deposits of Ossa-Morena and Aracena Belt (South Iberia). Results suggest the existence of at least two ancient hydrothermal events. The first one, Upper Brioverian in age ({approx}600-570 Ma), gave birth to Maria-Luisa and Puebla de la Reina massive sulphide deposits; it thus confirms the existence of a Cadomian orogen in South Iberia. Isotopic compositions indicate a local contribution of mantle-derived material (Maria Luisa mine), confirming the presence of ancient oceanic crust in Aracena Belt. This mineralizing event seems to extend till the Armorican Massif. The second episode, Eo-Hercynian in age ({approx}400-350 Ma) has allowed genesis of massive sulphide deposits of la Nava Paredon and Aguas Blancas, and could be coeval with the emplacement of South-Iberian massive sulphide ore deposits in the neighbouring South-Portuguese Zone. A more continental crustal source for later ore deposits could explain the much more important metal accumulation in this zone. (authors)

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La lectura del El Hereje, como la de cualquier obra literaria, puede llevar a una variedad de interpretaciones. Nos aproximamos aquí con una perspectiva humanista que conduce a un intento de comprensión de una relación rara trabada a lo largo de la novela, entre la mujer, el niño y la muerte. Acertar esta explicación es por una parte conferir al Hereje un carácter humanista y por otra, proponer un capítulo más al estudio realizado sobre el personaje femenino de la novela de Delibes por Luisa Bustos Deuso.ABSTRACT: El Hereje, like any literary work, is open to a variety interpret it from a humanist perspective that leads us to attempt an understanding of the strange relationship wopven throughout the novel betwee voman, child and death. Ascertaining this explanation on the one hand gives a humanistic nature to El Hereje, and on the other hand, provedes one more chapter in the study o female characters in Delibes' novels by Luisa Bustos Deuso.

    Full Text Available Este artículo revisa a partir de la narración de dos jóvenes (Luisa e Israel cuáles son los principales hitos que ellos destacan en el proceso de exclusión escolar y social que se relata en su historia de vida. A través del uso de técnicas biográfico-narrativas tratamos de dar voz a los jóvenes y de reflexionar junto con ellos sobre cuáles son las barreras que la escuela y la sociedad imponen a algunos individuos y que finalmente les excluyen o discapacitan. Se exponen posteriormente los puntos de coincidencia en ambos casos, aquellos obstáculos que reconocen en su historia vital, y también los aspectos originales de cada narración, aquellos que hacen de la vida de Luisa e Israel una experiencia única. Por último, se exponen algunas reflexiones sobre cómo los discursos de los jóvenes matizan y amplían nuestro conocimiento sobre la exclusión social y ponen en cuestión a la escuela y a otras instituciones sociales.

The first one is the short story“Antígona o la elección” by M.

    Full Text Available The face, the voice, the space that our body occupies are obscure to ourselves just like the experience of our birth. From Psychoanalysis to Phenomenology, from Freud to Merleau-Ponty, through Simmel, Ortega y Gasset and Zambrano, we learn that self-perception - the inward eye - is an experience that encompasses the styles of the verbal and visual (poetic and pictorial representations, while showing and defending the intimacy, inside and outside the ego. Thanks to its metaphoric essence, the word possess the ability to show itself as a figure, imago. Metaphor is the facet of language. The word takes shape and significance thanks to a fluctuation between subtraction, distance (language is never straightforward, will of adherence and belonging, while making itself visible and becoming the maternal facet of language.

    Full Text Available Este artículo no sólo presenta a mujeres del ámbito de la filosofía moderna y contemporánea como Edith Stein, María Zambrano o Hannah Arendt, sino que reflexiona sobre la singularidad de esta creatividad filosófica. Una creatividad desconocida y que ahora, en un momento en que se postula la muerte de la filosofía, se desvela como la continuidad del pensamiento humano. Las filósofas inventan, recuperan, destruyen y vuelven a re-construir temas negados y reprimidos por la filosofía tradicional. Su subjetividad representa en sí misma la exaltación del otro, la presencia de una alteridad, de una forma de ver que pretende la búsqueda de la representación de la verdad, de la realidad.

  7. Ortega’s Metaphor versus Zambrano’s Symbol. A Divergence

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alejandro Rodríguez Díaz del Real

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available There are great similarities and stylistic analogies between the essays and philosophical writings of José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955 and María Zambrano (1904-1991, derived from the university relationship they had during the late 1920’s, which can be seen in María Zambrano’s respect and admiration towards Ortega y Gasset as her teacher. Taking the use of metaphor in María Zambrano’s works as the starting point of this analysis, the present article explores the evolution of Zambrano’s style, from a remarkable initial Ortegan influence in her very early writings to how she defines her own path, where the metaphor slowly disappears and the symbol becomes an increasingly central element of her literary expression.

Se retoman algunas pro - puestas respecto al retorno al mundo orden simbólico de la madre, propuesto por Luisa Muraro como un puente hacia la re-viviscencia de la mujer como cuerpo-sujeto, o cuerpo de sujeto.

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available “Artemisa” supone una oportunidad excelente para acercarse al tema de la maternidad desde un punto de vista problemático, alejado de la idealización que, frecuentemente, observamos en tantos textos literarios. En este artículo, trataremos de ver cómo y por qué se fragua en el cuento una visión insoportable del hecho de ser madre, así como una imagen monstruosa del hijo cuya pulsión de vida termina desgastando y debilitando el cuerpo de la mujer a través del amamantamiento forzoso. Por otro lado, reflexionaremos en torno al papel subordinado de Luisa y su interiorización tanto del poder patriarcal como del rol de objeto y no sujeto de deseo. Las principales herramientas metodológicas de nuestro trabajo se desarrollarán desde una perspectiva de género.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Music played an outstanding role in seventeenth-century Spanish court theatre, even to the point of being a factor when considering whether the plays were to be staged in the royal palace or staged only in the popular theatres or corrales. But it was in the royal playhouses where a number of new musical-dramatic new genres developed. In other words, different types of plays were characterized by their musical components, as in for example, El baile de las aves [The Dance of the Birds] by Melchor Fernández de León, a text that was first staged in the Royal Palace in 1684, on occasion of the birthday of Queen María Luisa, wife to King Carlos II. Music, dancing and singing contribute greatly to turn the representation of the play into a very brilliant event.

    Full Text Available Although Luisa Valenzuela and Borges were friends for many years, it is only recently that we find traces of that friendship in her narrative. "La calesita" and "El otro libro," published in 1998 and 1999 respectively, evoke many of the elements we find in Borges's narrative. The latter story, which is the main focus of this study, employs nearly all the narrative elements we have come to associate with the Argentine master. Nonetheless, a single sign is changed as Borges's male characters are replaced by females in Valenzuela's work. The end result is a tribute to Borges but one that challenges us to perceive the world differently and to seek the "god behind God [that] begins the tale/game" of the master narratives and to whom Borges alludes in his poem, "Ajedrez."

    Full Text Available The literary work of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda was devoted mostly to three genres: poetry, narrative and drama. Nevertheless, there remain some important but less considered facets of her writing interests, such as her remarkable work as a columnist —where we can find texts later judged real essays— and as a literary critic. Among the latter I highlight her brief, but no less important, role as a prologue writer, dedicated absolutely to Cuban authors of varying significance: the Countess of Merlín, Luisa Pérez de Zambrana, Teodoro Guerrero and Ángel Mestre. Our contribution analyses the diverse foundations that support these texts, written in different moments between 1844 and 1865, where her literary and civic obsessions, and the theme of the “gender mark” that pervades her works, are exposed.La obra literaria de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda se cumplió fundamentalmente en tres géneros: poesía, narrativa y teatro. Quedan a su favor otros flancos importantes y poco estudiados de su labor, tales como su apreciable quehacer como articulista en trabajos devenidos, a veces, en verdaderos ensayos, y como crítica literaria. En esta última coloco su breve, pero no menos relevante servicio como prologuista, ejercido siempre sobre obras de autores cubanos de mayor o menor relevancia: la condesa de Merlín, Luisa Pérez de Zambrana, Teodoro Guerrero y Ángel Mestre. Nuestra propuesta valora los presupuestos de diverso carácter expuestos en esos trabajos, escritos en diferentes momentos entre 1844 y 1865, donde quedan reveladas sus propias inquietudes literarias, cívicas y también la marca de género, tan presente en el conjunto de su obra.

    Full Text Available Da quando lo scadere del settantesimo anno dalla morte di Francis Scott Fitzgerald ha permesso di sfruttare commercialmente – e legalmente – le sue opere senza dover pagare i diritti d’autore, editori piccoli e grandi hanno invaso le librerie con nuove traduzioni dei suoi lavori più importanti. Nuove? Non sempre. Negli oltre sessant’anni che sono trascorsi dall’ultima versione italiana del Grande Gatsby (Fernanda Pivano per Mondadori, 1950, per esempio, il mondo ha «recuperato» il testo corretto dell’opera, grazie al lavoro di Matthew J. Broccoli; alcuni giovani studiosi – tra tutti, Keith Gandal del City College of New York – hanno guardato al romanzo con occhi nuovi e solida scholarship per offrirne punti di vista in parte inediti e, soprattutto, non viziati da pregiudizio; la teoria e la pratica della traduzione, infine, si sono evolute e il primato della traduzione scorrevole, accettabile e appropriante viene ormai sempre più eroso (almeno nei casi più virtuosi da traduzioni adeguate al testo e alla sua specificità culturale. Le nuove traduzioni tengono conto di tutto questo o sono solo operazioni commerciali? Questo contributo vorrebbe essere da stimolo alla nascita di una nuova tradizione nella ricezione di questo testo, che non risponda esclusivamente a logiche mercantili e narcisismi da catalogo, ma che come accadde per la versione di Fernanda Pivano formi nuove generazioni di lettori, entusiasti ma – soprattutto – consapevoli e informati. Since the coming of the seventieth year after Francis Scott Fitzgerald’s death allowed to commercially – and legally – take advantage of his works without having to pay royalties, publishers big and small flooded bookstores with new translations of his novels.

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene como objetivo validar la importancia de un adecuado involucramiento parental en la prevención del consumo de drogas, así como en la disminución de los niveles de prevalencia de consumo, mediante un análisis correlacional de variables. La investigación se realiza a partir de una muestra de 5863 estudiantes de secundaria, como parte de la “IV Encuesta nacional sobre consumo de drogas en población de educación secundaria”, la cual se aplicó durante el 2015 a un grupo representativo de estudiantes de 50 colegios de todo Costa Rica. El instrumento utilizado contó con 109 preguntas distribuidas en siete secciones distintas, desde información personal y académica básica, a conductas de riesgo, bajo los efectos de sustancias psicoactivas. Entre los principales resultados se encuentra que aproximadamente 6 de cada 10 estudiantes reportan un mayor involucramiento por parte de sus padres, además, se rescatan mayores niveles de prevalencia en consumo de alcohol, tabaco y marihuana entre los jóvenes con menor involucramiento parental; de igual forma, aquellos jóvenes con una mejor relación con sus padres presentan una percepción de alto riesgo mayor sobre conductas de consumo. Se encontraron también relaciones estadísticamente significativas entre el consumo de padres y su nivel de involucramiento, evidenciando que aquellos que consumen en menor medida presentan un mayor nivel de involucramiento.

    Full Text Available Tras 15 años desde su llegada a Segovia, la Universidad de Valladolid (UVA no era reconocida en la sociedad segoviana, debido a diferentes causas: existencia de otras instituciones universitarias, ausencia de instalaciones propias y dispersión geográfica de los centros que utilizaba. Se procede al diagnóstico de la situación por medio de estudio de percepción interna mediante entrevistas en profundidad, que se completa con un análisis de la imagen de la institución en la sociedad reflejada en la prensa. Los resultados obtenidos aconsejan la necesidad de propiciar iniciativas que ayuden a construir la imagen de la UVA en la ciudad que con frecuencia es confusa o no existe. Aprovechando la inminente construcción de un edificio propio, el Vicerrectorado del Campus de Segovia decide desarrollar un plan de acción para consolidar la imagen institucional en la ciudad creando una marca secundaria. Con el objetivo de implicar a la comunidad universitaria en la construcción de la propia imagen, se convoca un concurso interno, al tiempo que se comunica a la prensa todo el proceso. Tras la elección del nombre de Campus Público María Zambrano de Segovia, se evalúa la repercusión mediática que arroja un balance positivo. /// Fithteen years after launching in Segovia University of Valladolid has failed to consolidate it´s image in Segovia´s society. The geographically dispersion of the faculty and school centers, the confusion with the former educational institutions, and more than 10 years delay in the construction of the University building has marked the citicen´s percepetions. A diagnosis of the situation has been approached conducting two studies: an internal perception study using in-depth interviews and the image of the institution in society reflected in the press through a discourse analysis.

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available The political thought of the Spanish exile of 1939 offers, seventy years later, fruitful and current perspectives. Besides a systematic and well-known work, linked to critical Marxism, such as the one of Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez, include other expressions, fragmented and meandering character, which focuses this paper. These were, namely, the early genealogy of fascism pointed out by Eugenio Ímaz and María Zambrano using different hermeneutical keys, but overlapping in linking it to the secularizing progression of modern reason. Second, the memory of own exile to both appealed against a complacent present about the victims of his more recent past, thereby leading to a debate between history and memory impregnated of political meaning. And third, the critique of contractarian logic pointed out by Eduardo Nicol on the horizon of a global techno-scientific rationality whose political implications affected the Spanish democracy instituted after the dictatorship.

    El pensamiento político del exilio español de 1939 ofrece, setenta años después, perspectivas fecundas y actuales. Junto a una obra sistemática y bien conocida, ligada al marxismo crítico, como la de Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez, cabe destacar otras expresiones, de carácter fragmentado y sinuoso, en las que se centra este trabajo. Tales fueron, concretamente, la temprana genealogía del fascismo que apuntaron Eugenio Ímaz y María Zambrano valiéndose de claves hermenéuticas diferentes aunque coincidentes en ligar dicho fenómeno a la progresión secularizadora de la razón moderna. En segundo lugar, la memoria del propio exilio a la que tanto uno como otro apelaron a contrapelo de un presente autocomplaciente respecto a las victimas de su pasado mas reciente, suscitando así un debate entre la historia y la memoria impregnado de significación política. Y, en tercer lugar, la crítica de la lógica contractualista apuntada por Eduardo Nicol en el horizonte de un racionalismo

  12. Quasi-appropriation of dialectical materialism: a critical reading of Marxism in Vygotskian approaches to cultural studies in science education

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rodrigues, André; Camillo, Juliano; Mattos, Cristiano

    2014-09-01

    In this review essay we examine five categories of dialectical materialism proposed by Paulo Lima Junior, Fernanda Ostermann, and Flavia Rezende in their study of the extent to which the articles published in Cultural Studies of Science Education, that use a Vygotskian approach, are committed to Marxism/dialectical materialism. By closely examining these categories ("thesis, antithesis and synthesis," "unity of analysis," "History," "revolution," "materialism") we expect to enrich the general discussion about the possible contributions of Marxism to science education. We perceive part of science education practice as orientating toward positivism, which reduces human beings—teachers, learners and researchers—to isolated individuals who construct knowledge by themselves. The very same approach aggravates the inner contradiction of the capitalist society demanding commitments from researchers to continually build innovative science education from human praxis. Nevertheless, it is necessary to situate ourselves beyond a formal commitment with dialectical materialism and hence reach the heart of this method. Besides understanding the researchers' commitments, we question the extent to which the respective research helps to radically refresh the current view on science, science education practice, and research in science education.

This metal is used in numerous industrial and consumer products, including stainless steel, magnets, metal plating, coinage, and special alloys, and is therefore almost impossible to completely avoid in daily life. Nickel contact dermatitis can represent an important morbidity, particularly in patients with chronic hand eczema, which can lead to inability to work, a decrease in quality of life and significant healthcare expenses. Therefore, its management is of great importance. This article reviews diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic strategies in this field.Keywords: allergic contact dermatitis, metals, contact hypersensitivity, occupational exposure, children, contact dermatitis

    Nina M. Scott

    1984-01-01

    Full Text Available In terms of both narrative and thematic organization, Gabriel Garcia Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude deals with tightly-closed structures. Whereas from the beginning Macondo has been interpreted in a variety of ways, critics have paid less attention to the meaning of the Buendía house itself. A close reading of the text shows that the way in which certain characters interact with the physical spaces of the house is highly symbolic and closely related to the thematic development of the entire novel. The rise and fall of the Buendía dynasty is presided over by three women, who function as the rulers of the house: Ursula, Fernanda and Amaranta Ursula. Each one of them affects the architecture of the structure, but as the house increasingly has a life of its own, is in turn shaped by the dwelling itself. The fall of the Buendía family is reflected in the loss of control not only of the lives of certain characters, but of the vital spaces within the house that they inhabit.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se discute la figura de Juana de Arco en tanto que héroe. Para ello examinamos los procesos judiciales que la condenan a muerte. Se trata de precisar si el sexo determina su modo de encarnar la heroicidad. Defendemos que su travestismo es una de las causas fundamentales de su condena, por la transgresión que supone de los límites de las normas de la Iglesia y de las rígidas regulaciones del binarismo de género. Juana de Arco ocupa un lugar de excepción simbólico y social al no haber en ese momento histórico un espacio conceptual que simbolice la posición masculina para las mujeres. Utilizamos los análisis de María Zambrano sobre Antígona para señalar la posición que ocupa Juana de Arco dentro de la estirpe de las «doncellas muertas». Por último, proponemos que Juana de Arco muestra una ética de la piedad desde ese lugar de excepción en la ciudadanía.

    Starved cultures of Escherichia coli undergo successive rounds of population takeovers by mutants of increasing fitness. These mutants express the growth advantage in stationary phase (GASP) phenotype. Previous work identified the rpoS819 allele as a GASP mutation allowing cells to take over stationary-phase cultures after growth in rich media (M. M. Zambrano, D. A. Siegele, M. A. Almirón, A. Tormo, and R. Kolter, Science 259:1757–1760, 1993). Here we have identified three new GASP loci from an aged rpoS819 strain: sgaA, sgaB, and sgaC. Each locus is capable of conferring GASP on the rpoS819 parent, and they can provide successively higher fitnesses for the bacteria in the starved cultures. All four GASP mutations isolated thus far allow for faster growth on both individual and mixtures of amino acids. Each mutation confers a growth advantage on a different subset of amino acids, and these mutations act in concert to increase the overall catabolic capacity of the cell. We present a model whereby this enhanced ability to catabolize amino acids is responsible for the fitness gain during carbon starvation, as it may allow GASP mutants to outcompete the parental cells when growing on the amino acids released by dying cells.

  2. I awake, she slept. Sor Juana Ines and Juan Rulfo or the new Latin American poetic condition

    Full Text Available The article examines how Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz and Juan Rulfo, in dialogue with the literary tradition –especially with the work of Dante, Gongorism and the modern tradition– build a Latin American poetic condition. To that end, it studies the long oneiric ascent of Sor Juana, in First Dream; and Susana San Juan’s story, in Pedro Paramo. For the analysis, it goes to the concepts of resistance when suffering and the signals to transcendence provided by Maria Zambrano in her reflections on the essential condition of the human. It explains how Sor Juana and Susana San Juan offer such resistance: Sor Juana through the journey of knowledge, the sovereignty of the body, the exposure of the precariousness of life and the metaphor of the ascent; Susana, through the fall, madness and eroticism. Finally, it interprets in both characters, the appropriation of the signs of transcendence: the revaluation of the moment, of dreams and the creation-destruction of the divine. It concludes by showing how Sor Juana takes the momentum that starts in Europe with Montaigne, Bacon, the Renaissance and the Golden Age and proposes significant transformations that allow speaking of a different poetic condition. And how Rulfo, starting from the American mythic-religious condition, the non-place, the ontological indefiniteness, stops at the image of Purgatory: showing there the luminous consciousness, the unleashed eroticism and the sacralized madness of Susana as a relief, a possibility of leakage and human of redemption of the sentence.

    Full Text Available Desde Aristóteles hasta Castilla del Pino, desde Covarrubias hasta María Zambrano, desde el clasicismo grecolatino a la modernidad de los Simposiums de Psicología y Psicoanálisis, el tema de la envidia ha sido objeto de análisis. Tan sutiles matices provienen de la filosofía como de la psicología, de la literatura como de la clínica. La envidia es sometida a la mirada benevolente que exige su rango de emoción universal humana, derivada de la alteridad, la comparación y la autovaloración negativa, así como de la deficiente instalación narcisística y el anhelo de suplantación del otro idealizado. La envidia es antesala del odio y de un cortejo de expresiones interpersonales y sociales muy variadas y sibilinas. Anida, incluso, tras el choque de civilizaciones generador de los más atroces y destructivos episodios de fanatismo terrorista recientemente padecidos en nuestro mundo.

Fue elaborado ronzo trabajo de clase durante su formación en traducción, pero tanto por la calidad como por el contenido se ha considerado de interés para la comunidad de educadores físicos. Debe aclararse que ha sido condensado por razones de espacio. La preparación anual específicamente diseñada para baloncesto alcanzó un nivel alto de sofisticación durante las décadas pasadas. Cada día surgen indicios que demuestran que este programa puede contribuir al mejoramiento del rendimiento y a reducir el potencial de lesión. Entre los principales componentes de preparación para este deporte se puede destacar la potencia anaeróbica (etapas I y II, potencia aeróbica, fuerza y potencia muscular, resistencia y por último la flexibilidad. El concepto de preparación anual emplea los principios de periodización sobre el trabajo y descanso necesarios para alcanzar un máximo desempeño y evitar lesiones. Aún así, existen algunos problemas particulares asociados a los varios niveles de competición que requieren monitoreo continuo por parte del entrenador con miras a maximizar la condición física y evitar el sobreentrenamiento.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do trabalho foi comparar cultivares de alface de folhas soltas lisas, submetidas a estresse osmótico em soluções nutritivas sob cultivo hidropônico. Foram realizados dois experimentos, cada um com uma condutividade elétrica (C.E. de 2,0 dS m-1 e 2,5 dS m-1. Os tratamentos foram as cultivares de alface Babá de Verão, Floresta, Luisa, Manoa, Regina 579, Saia Véia e Vitória Verdinha. O delineamento experimental foi blocos casualizados, com três repetições. A colheita foi feita aos 45 dias após a semeadura. Nenhuma cultivar se destacou no conjunto das características avaliadas, embora a Manoa tenha apresentado o maior índice de queima de bordas das folhas, sem diferir estatisticamente da Saia Véia e Babá de Verão. As cultivares Regina 579 e Vitória Verdinha são as preferidas dos produtores hidropônico de Pernambuco, devido à falta de genótipos mais adaptados a essa modalidade de cultivo, e por apresentarem folhas lisas, levemente enrugadas e de textura macia.The aim of this work was to compare loose-leaf lettuce cultivars submitted to osmotic stress in nutrient solutions in hydroponic culture. Two experiments were carried out, with electric conductivity of 2.0 or 2.5 dS m-1. The treatments were the cultivars Babá de Verão, Floresta, Luisa, Manoa, Regina 579, Saia Véia, and Vitória Verdinha. The experimental design was randomized blocks with three replications. Harvest was performed 45 days after sowing. None among the cultivars differed clearly on the characteristics evaluated. However, "Manoa" showed the highest rate of leaf-edge burning, without significant difference in comparison to "Saia Véia" and "Babá de Verão" for summer. The cultivars Regina 579 and Vitória Verdinha are preferred by the growers of hydroponic vegetables of Pernambuco, due to the lack of better genotypes for this type of cultivation and due to the presence of smooth slightly-wrinkled leaves with soft texture.

In both cases the literary characters speak to us from the other side of the grave, in order to radicalize questions about life, about the meetings that have marked the characters, about the body as mediation of those meetings. Thus, a dialogue emerges from these figures beyond life, in which the great eschatological themes of Pauline theology resonate forcefully and, at the same time, permit a deep reflection upon eternal life as always being with the Lord, as well as regarding the kind of body with which we will rise again

    Full Text Available In a context of marked tensions between gynocritics and contemporary Spanish women writers, Carmen Martín Gaite’s novel Nubosidad variable (Variable Cloud,1992 stands out as a curious paradox. As is well known, Martín Gaite repeatedly declared not to be a feminist and even scorned women who fought for equality between both sexes. This article argues that Nubosidad variable, however, constitutes one of the best examples of a consciously feminist text. In this novel Martín Gaite applies some of the most prominent paradigms of feminist literary theory, such as the construction of a non-linear and a-chronological narration (Julia Kristeva, the attempt to create a “language of the body” (Helène Cixous, the foregrounding of a mother-daughter bond (Luisa Muraro, as well as the use of female writing as a means of self-discovery (Elaine Showalter.En un contexto de falta de comunicación entre ginocrítica y escritura femenina, la novela Nubosidad variable (1992 de Carmen Martín Gaite se presenta como una significativa paradoja. Si por un lado su autora declaró repetidas veces no ser feminista —y hasta menospreció con ironía a las mujeres que han luchado por la igualdad—, Nubosidad variable es una innegable aplicación de algunos de los más conocidos paradigmas de la teoría literaria feminista. Desde la narración no-lineal y atemporal que sigue el “tiempo de las mujeres” de Julia Kristeva, hasta el intento de crear una lengua del cuerpo a lo Hélène Cixous; desde el vínculo madre-hija teorizado por Luisa Muraro, hasta la escritura femenina como auto-descubrimiento de Elaine Showalter, esta novela representa uno de los mejores ejemplos, dentro de la narrativa contemporánea española, de lo que llamaría un texto conscientemente feminista.

    Shale gas is currently being explored in Europe as an alternative energy source to conventional oil and gas. There is, however, increasing concern about the potential environmental impacts of shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing (fracking). In this study, we focussed on the potential impacts on regional water resources within the Baltic Basin in Poland, both in terms of quantity and quality. The future development of the shale play was modeled for the time period 2015-2030 using the LUISA modeling framework. We formulated two scenarios which took into account the large range in technology and resource requirements, as well as two additional scenarios based on the current legislation and the potential restrictions which could be put in place. According to these scenarios, between 0.03 and 0.86% of the total water withdrawals for all sectors could be attributed to shale gas exploitation within the study area. A screening-level assessment of the potential impact of the chemicals commonly used in fracking was carried out and showed that due to their wide range of physicochemical properties, these chemicals may pose additional pressure on freshwater ecosystems. The legislation put in place also influenced the resulting environmental impacts of shale gas extraction. Especially important are the protection of vulnerable ground and surface water resources and the promotion of more water-efficient technologies.

I hardly need an excuse to come to the Hague and to the KB, the National Library of the Netherlands, where, through working with KB colleagues, I have learnt such a lot about the future potential of European libraries over the years. When the invitation was issued last year, I had myself only recently taken charge of a large international research library. As many of you know, I have now left that post at Berlin, so that what I shall be saying today is based on my thinking about some of the issues from the point of view of library decision makers, but I won't be constrained by current institutional responsibility. Needless to say, I shall also be drawing on my personal experience of preservation and digitisation issues not only at Berlin State Library but also at the British Library, latterly as the Head of Early Printed Collections, and especially as it relates to surrogacy or reformatting.

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available The symposium, “How (if at all is gender relevant to comparative philosophy,” focuses on relevance of gender as an analytic and critical tool in comparative philosophical understanding and debate. Nkiru Nzegwu argues that gender as conceived by contemporary Euro-American feminism did not exist in pre-colonial Yorùbá as well as many Native American societies, and that therefore employing gender as a conceptual category in understanding the philosophies of pre-colonial Yorùbá and other non-gendered societies constitutes a profound mistake. What’s more, doing so amounts to a totalizing Euro-American colonial imposition that does violence to nongendered societies that reject gender as an ontological category. Hence, gender is ill-suited as a universal comparative philosophical tool. Nzegwu’s three co-symposiasts, Mary I. Bockover, Maitrayee Chaudhuri, and María Luisa Femenías enrich and complicate this question by bringing to bear both conceptual, ethical and empirical considerations drawn from the United States, India, and Latin America respectively.

    Full Text Available This work has the objectives of testing and systematizing the methodological proposal of photography as a discharger of the trigger of memory, a technique that combines photographic images with oral history. The method, developed by the group Communication and History of Universidade Estadual de Londrina, was formalized in the dissertation of Maria Luisa Hoffmann (2010 and, since then, it has been applied to cities with recent histories. To do a relevant test in this dissertation, Telêmaco Borba(PR was chosen as field of study, and the precepts of empiricism in communication were respected, following the ideas of Maria Immacolata Vassallo Lopes (2010 and Luiz Claudio Martino (2010. The application of the method was also based theoretically, using as references the works of Jacques Le Goff (2003, Ecléa Bosi (2009 and Boris Kossoy (2009. During the empirical process, nine pioneers of Telêmaco Borba were submitted to the methodological proposal, using 17 old photographs of the city. Roughly, the results of the test show that the technique, when applied with the epistemological criteria of science, becomes an efficient empirical tool, capable of bringing new data and information to the studies of memory and to the history of the studied cities.

    Technical development has produced a curious phenomenon, the ebbing of the moral imperative of reproduction. After 2000 years of fight against diseases and death, the respect for life has declined threatening the destruction of Western civilization and family by destroying unborn babies via abortion. Artificial in vitro experimentation can potentially lead to elimination of very young, old, or sick people. Dr. Bernard Nathanson in his book "Aborting America" called abortion infanticide, one of the most abominable crimes. The beginning of life start at conception as shown by recent extra-corporal, in vitro fertilization resulting in a viable fetus, as in the case of Luisa Brown who was conceived in a tube by Drs. Edwards' and Steptoe's technique. The creation of human embryo banks and experimentation on human embryos amount to biological pronography. Respect for the human species and reproduction should manifest itself in the fight against sterility and genetic diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, Down's syndrome, and Huntington's chorea. The fight against AIDS and the elimination of the risk of contracting it by contaminated blood is also a medical priority. In the end, the question still remains: can science itself save the world without moral imperatives, is not the dilemma of Faust and the vileness of Mephistopheles conjured with the nuclear experience and human experimentation.

    Shale gas is currently being explored in Europe as an alternative energy source to conventional oil and gas. There is, however, increasing concern about the potential environmental impacts of shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing (fracking). In this study, we focussed on the potential impacts on regional water resources within the Baltic Basin in Poland, both in terms of quantity and quality. The future development of the shale play was modeled for the time period 2015-2030 using the LUISA modeling framework. We formulated two scenarios which took into account the large range in technology and resource requirements, as well as two additional scenarios based on the current legislation and the potential restrictions which could be put in place. According to these scenarios, between 0.03 and 0.86 % of the total water withdrawals for all sectors could be attributed to shale gas exploitation within the study area. A screening-level assessment of the potential impact of the chemicals commonly used in fracking was carried out and showed that due to their wide range of physicochemical properties, these chemicals may pose additional pressure on freshwater ecosystems. The legislation put in place also influenced the resulting environmental impacts of shale gas extraction. Especially important are the protection of vulnerable ground and surface water resources and the promotion of more water-efficient technologies.

    Full Text Available Conrad’s famous “The Secret Sharer” and the short story “La palabra asesino” [“The Word ‘Killer’” in its English translation] by the Argentine Luisa Valenzuela both concern psychological self-exploration and self-discovery, through contact with a killer, a situation which challenges conventional moral standards. It is suggested that a comparison between the two stories may throw reciprocal light on both of them. In each story an act or acts of murder becomes a trigger which sets off a train of psychological events, somewhat different in the two cases. Discussion of the differences highlights the authors' priorities and the significance they attach to the darker side of the human personality. Both stories are highly ambiguous; but the ambiguity serves a different purpose in each case. Conrad is concerned with psychological "doubling"; Valenzuela with exploration of aspects of the human personality which in turn may be related to aspects of Argentina's collective personality as it expressed itself during the “Dirty War.” An examination of the different forces in play in the two stories improves our understanding of both.

Two drugs, infliximab first, then adalimumab afterward, showed effectiveness in inducing and maintaining long-term remission both in pivotal trials as well as in clinical practice. However, approximately 25% of patients with UC, who fail or do not tolerate all available therapies, require a colectomy for refractory disease. The therapeutic scenario of UC has been recently upgraded by the introduction of golimumab, the latest anti TNF-alpha agent to be approved. Golimumab is a totally humanized monoclonal antibody, administered by a subcutaneous injection every 4 weeks. Treatment with golimumab has shown to be effective to induce sustained clinical benefit in tough-to-treat patients with UC, including steroid and/or immunosuppressive refractory and steroid-dependent patients. In this review, we summarize all available efficacy and safety data of golimumab in UC, analyzing the potential therapeutic position for the treatment of refractory patients with UC.

    Full Text Available This article deals with the servant of God Maria Caterina Brondi (Sarzana, 1684-Pisa, 1719, also known by the time as the santina de Sarzana. She begins her road to perfection in her hometown under the auspicies of the Jesuits who are touring the Italian lands deploying the popular missions and then she pursues it under the spiritual direction of a number of ecclesiastics in towns belonging to the Republic of Genoa and to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. Her experiences arouses the interest of the Grand-Duke Cosimo III and his daugther Anna Maria Luisa de Medici. Her characteristics as a female mystic together with the doubting reaction from church authorities she received rank her in the company of Saints Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Jesus and her contemporary Veronica Giuliani. The study sheds new light to the forms of lay spirituality, ecclesiastical surveilance and the active involvement from no less high a political official than the GrandDuke of Tuscany, who places her under his protection and patronage. Her death unlashes polemics and the cause of her beatification seems to have left unfinished.

    Several organizations have developed frameworks to systematically assess the value of new drugs. To evaluate the convergent validity and interrater reliability of 4 value frameworks to understand the extent to which these tools can facilitate value-based treatment decisions in oncology. Eight panelists used the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) frameworks to conduct value assessments of 15 drugs for advanced lung and breast cancers and castration-refractory prostate cancer. Panelists received instructions and published clinical data required to complete the assessments, assigning each drug a numeric or letter score. Kendall's Coefficient of Concordance for Ranks (Kendall's W) was used to measure convergent validity by cancer type among the 4 frameworks. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) were used to measure interrater reliability for each framework across cancers. Panelists were surveyed on their experiences. Kendall's W across all 4 frameworks for breast, lung, and prostate cancer drugs was 0.560 (P= 0.010), 0.562 (P = 0.010), and 0.920 (P fair to excellent, increasing with clinical benefit subdomain concordance and simplicity of drug trial data. Interrater reliability, highest for ASCO and ESMO, improved with clarity of instructions and specificity of score definitions. Continued use, analyses, and refinements of these frameworks will bring us closer to the ultimate goal of using value-based treatment decisions to improve patient care and outcomes.

    2016-04-01

    The evaluation of model performance is a central part of (hydrological) modelling. Much attention has been given to the development of evaluation criteria and diagnostic frameworks. (Klemeš, 1986; Gupta et al., 2008; among many others). Nevertheless, many applications exist for which objective functions do not yet provide satisfying summaries. Thus, the necessity to visualize results arises in order to explore a wider range of model capacities, be it strengths or deficiencies. Visualizations are usually devised for specific projects and these efforts are often not distributed to a broader community (e.g. via open source software packages). Hence, the opportunity to explicitly discuss a state-of-the-art presentation technique is often missed. We therefore present a comprehensive R-package for evaluating model performance by visualizing and exploring different aspects of hydrological time-series. The presented package comprises a set of useful plots and visualization methods, which complement existing packages, such as hydroGOF (Zambrano-Bigiarini et al., 2012). It is derived from practical applications of the hydrological models COSERO and COSEROreg (Kling et al., 2014). visCOS, providing an interface in R, represents an easy-to-use software package for visualizing and assessing model performance and can be implemented in the process of model calibration or model development. The package provides functions to load hydrological data into R, clean the data, process, visualize, explore and finally save the results in a consistent way. Together with an interactive zoom function of the time series, an online calculation of the objective functions for variable time-windows is included. Common hydrological objective functions, such as the Nash-Sutcliffe Efficiency and the Kling-Gupta Efficiency, can also be evaluated and visualized in different ways for defined sub-periods like hydrological years or seasonal sections. Many hydrologists use long-term water-balances as a

In a significant proportion of patients with COPD, reduced lung elastic recoil combined with expiratory flow limitation leads to lung hyperinflation during the course of the disease. Development of hyperinflation during the course of COPD is insidious. Dynamic hyperinflation is highly prevalent in the advanced stages of COPD, and new evidence suggests that it also occurs in many patients with mild disease, independently of the presence of resting hyperinflation. Hyperinflation is clinically relevant for patients with COPD mainly because it contributes to dyspnea, exercise intolerance, skeletal muscle limitations, morbidity, and reduced physical activity levels associated with the disease. Various pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions have been shown to reduce hyperinflation and delay the onset of ventilatory limitation in patients with COPD. The aim of this review is to address the more recent literature regarding the pathogenesis, assessment, and management of both static and dynamic lung hyperinflation in patients with COPD. We also address the influence of biological sex and obesity and new developments in our understanding of hyperinflation in patients with mild COPD and its evolution during

Animal models have been developed to better understand these mechanisms and to evaluate both safety and efficacy of therapies before starting clinical trials. Several species of animals have been used in experimental models of asthma, such as Drosophila, rats, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, pigs, primates and equines. However, the most common species studied in the last two decades is mice, particularly BALB/c. Animal models of asthma try to mimic the pathophysiology of human disease. They classically include two phases: sensitization and challenge. Sensitization is traditionally performed by intraperitoneal and subcutaneous routes, but intranasal instillation of allergens has been increasingly used because human asthma is induced by inhalation of allergens. Challenges with allergens are performed through aerosol, intranasal or intratracheal instillation. However, few studies have compared different routes of sensitization and challenge. The causative allergen is another important issue in developing a good animal model. Despite being more traditional and leading to intense inflammation, ovalbumin has been replaced by aeroallergens, such as house dust mites, to use the allergens that cause human disease. Finally, researchers should define outcomes to be evaluated, such as serum-specific antibodies, airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation and remodeling. The present review analyzes the animal models of asthma, assessing differences between species, allergens and routes

Methods: Thirty-three participants from the Argentina-Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative database completed a cognitive battery, the Cognitive Reserve Questionnaire (CRQ, and an Argentinian accentuation reading test (TAP-BA as a measure of premorbid intelligence, and underwent lumbar puncture for CSF biomarker quantification. Results: The CRQ significantly correlated with TAP-BA, education, and Aβ1-42. When considering Aβ1-42 levels, significant differences were found in CRQ scores; higher levels of CSF Aβ1-42 were associated with higher CRQ scores. Conclusion: Reduced Aβ1-42 in CSF is considered as evidence of amyloid deposition in the brain. Previous results suggest that individuals with higher education, higher occupational attainment, and participation in leisure activities (cognitive reserve have a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Our results support the notion that enhanced neural activity has a protective role in mild cognitive impairment, as evidenced by higher CSF Aβ1-42 levels in individuals with more cognitive reserve.

The aim of this study was to develop liquid crystalline systems for topical administration of curcumin for the treatment of inflammation. These liquid crystalline systems were developed from oleic acid, polyoxypropylene (5 polyoxyethylene (20 cetyl alcohol, and water as the surfactant, oil phase, and aqueous phase, respectively. These systems were characterized, and polarized light microscopy showed anisotropy with lamellar mesophases (Formulation 1 and hexagonal mesophases (Formulations 2 and 3, which were confirmed by the peak ratio measured using small-angle X-ray scattering. In addition, rheological tests revealed that the formulations exhibited gel-like behavior (G'>G'', as evidenced by the increased G' values that indicate structured systems. Texture profile analysis showed that hexagonal mesophases have high values of hardness, adhesiveness, and compressibility, which indicate structured systems. In vitro studies on bioadhesion revealed that the hexagonal mesophases increased the bioadhesiveness of the systems to the skin of the pig ear. An in vivo inflammation experiment showed that the curcumin-loaded hexagonal mesophase exhibited an anti-inflammatory activity as compared to the positive control (dexamethasone. The results suggest that this system has a potential to be used as a bioadhesive vehicle for the topical administration of curcumin. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that these systems can be used for the optimization of drug

Lipid nanoparticles, specifically nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC, were synthetized by the high-shear homogenization and ultrasonication techniques. These nanoparticles were designed to exhibit both passive and active targeting strategies to be efficiently internalized by the alveolar macrophages, traffic to the acidified phagosomes and phagolysosomes, and release bactericidal concentrations of the antituberculosis drug intracellularly. NLC that could entrap RFB were prepared, characterized, and further functionalized with mannose. Particles’ diameter, zeta potential, morphology, drug% entrapping efficiency, and drug release kinetics were evaluated. The mannose coating process was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared. Further, the cytotoxicity of the formulations was evaluated by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl-2,5 diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT assay in A549, Calu-3, and Raw 264.7 cells. The diameter of NLC formulations was found to be in the range of 175–213 nm, and drug entrapping efficiency was found to be above 80%. In addition, high storage stability for the formulations was expected since they maintained the initial characteristics for 6 months. Moreover, the drug release was pH-sensitive, with a faster drug release at acidic pH than at neutral pH. These results pose a strong argument that the developed nanocarrier can be explored as a promising carrier for safer and more efficient management of tuberculosis by exploiting the pulmonary route of

Forty-three patients were randomized to weekly classes of singing practice, or handcraft work. They performed spirometry and completed maximal respiratory pressure measurements, evaluations of dyspnea, and the Saint George’s Respiratory Questionnaire, before and after 24 training classes. A functional evaluation, immediately after 10 minutes of singing practice, was also performed at the end of the study. Fifteen subjects completed the study in each group. In comparison to controls the singing group exhibited transitory elevations on the dyspnea Borg scale (p = 0.02, and inspiratory capacity (p = 0.01, and decreases of expiratory reserve volume (p = 0.03, just after a short session of singing. There was a significant difference on changes of maximal expiratory pressures in the comparison between groups at the end of training. While the control group showed deterioration of maximal expiratory pressure, the singing group exhibited a small improvement (p = 0.05. Both groups showed significant improvements of QoL in within group comparisons. We have concluded that singing classes are a well tolerated activity for selected subjects with COPD. Regular practice of singing may improve QoL, and preserve the maximal expiratory pressure of these patients.Keywords: COPD; pulmonary function tests; breathing exercises

  20. Prolonged Stationary-Phase Incubation Selects for lrp Mutations in Escherichia coli K-12

    2000-01-01

    Evolution by natural selection occurs in cultures of Escherichia coli maintained under carbon starvation stress. Mutants of increased fitness express a growth advantage in stationary phase (GASP) phenotype, enabling them to grow and displace the parent as the majority population. The first GASP mutation was identified as a loss-of-function allele of rpoS, encoding the stationary-phase global regulator, ςS (M. M. Zambrano, D. A. Siegele, M. A. Almirón, A. Tormo, and R. Kolter, Science 259:1757–1760, 1993). We now report that a second global regulator, Lrp, can also play a role in stationary-phase competition. We found that a mutant that took over an aged culture of an rpoS strain had acquired a GASP mutation in lrp. This GASP allele, lrp-1141, encodes a mutant protein lacking the critical glycine in the turn of the helix-turn-helix DNA-binding domain. The lrp-1141 allele behaves as a null mutation when in single copy and is dominant negative when overexpressed. Hence, the mutant protein appears to retain stability and the ability to dimerize but lacks DNA-binding activity. We also demonstrated that a lrp null allele generated by a transposon insertion has a fitness gain identical to that of the lrp-1141 allele, verifying that cells lacking Lrp activity have a competitive advantage during prolonged starvation. Finally, we tested by genetic analysis the hypothesis that the lrp-1141 GASP mutation confers a fitness gain by enhancing amino acid catabolism during carbon starvation. We found that while amino acid catabolism may play a role, it is not necessary for the lrp GASP phenotype, and hence the lrp GASP phenotype is due to more global physiological changes. PMID:10894750

Nanoparticles armed with gH625 are able to cross an in vitro model of the blood–brain barrier (BBB. In the present study, in vitro experiments were performed to investigate whether gH625 can enter and accumulate in neuron and astrocyte cell lines. The ability of gH625 to cross the BBB in vivo was also evaluated. gH625 was administered in vivo to rats and its presence in the liver and in the brain was detected. Within 3.5 hours of intravenous administration, gH625 can be found beyond the BBB in proximity to cell neurites. gH625 has no toxic effects in vivo, since it does not affect the maximal oxidative capacity of the brain or the mitochondrial respiration rate. Our data suggest that gH625, with its ability to cross the BBB, represents a novel nanocarrier system for drug delivery to the central nervous system. These results open up new possibilities for direct delivery of drugs into patients in the field of theranostics and might address the treatment of several human diseases.

Only when 5.0% (w/v hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPβCD was used, a complete resuspension by manual shaking and almost identical particle size of the NSs was obtained after freeze-drying. In vitro drug release and ex vivo corneal permeation of NSs with and without HPβCD were evaluated. The presence of HPβCD resulted in a reduction of burst effect, providing a more sustained release of the drug. A significant decrease in the FB transcorneal permeation of NSs containing HPβCD was obtained, related to the slower diffusion of FB observed in the in vitro results. The uptake mechanism of the NSs was examined by confocal microscopy, suggesting that NSs penetrate corneal epithelium through a transcellular pathway. Ocular tolerance was assessed in vitro and in vivo by the Eytex™ and Draize test, respectively. Long-term stability studies revealed that γ-irradiated NSs stored as freeze-dried powders maintained their initial characteristics. Stability studies of the resuspended NSs after 3 months of storage in the aqueous form showed that NSs were stable at 4°C, while formulations stored at 25°C and 40°C increased their initial particle size.Keywords: nanospheres, poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide, poly(ethylene glycol, hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin, freeze-drying, γ-irradiation

Lema que es contestado por los krausistas generalizando la crítica a las mujeres poco instruidas: “son deleznables las mujeres que escriben beso con “v” y creen que Polonia es nombre de mujer”. Igualmente, los hábitos lectores y las lecturas de novelas no tienen por qué ser perjudiciales, y la alabada sencillez femenina será para ellos señal de ignorancia, de vulgaridad.

    Full Text Available Non è certamente casuale che il centenario della pubblicazione del “Trattato di Sociologia” di Vilfredo Pareto sia trascorso senza un'adeguata attenzione da parte della comunità accademica. I suoi scritti, le sue riflessioni, le sue critiche e le sue prese di posizione pur se ben argomentate e documentate con uno spessore culturale di grande rilievo, sono state sempre “scomode”. La sua testimonianza ha persuasivamente dimostrato che il motivo di ciò è nel riferimento simbolico ma non soltanto alla forma stessa del pensare “in contrapposizione a” e in maniera icastica e senza fare sconti: troppo inusuale per l'intellettuale contemporaneo. Tuttavia l'Università degli Studi di Perugia ha promosso un convegno in occasione del centenario della pubblicazione del “Trattato”. Per questo convegno Silvia Fornari, Andrea Lombardinilo, Uliano Conti, Roberta Iannone, Francesco Antonelli, Maria Luisa Maniscalco, Raffaele Federici, Ilaria Riccioni, Angela Maria Zocchi, Andrea Millefiorini, Emanuele Susca, hanno elaborato alcune dotte riflessioni che si propongono all'attenzione di un pubblico più ampio anche di non specialisti con l'intento, dichiarato, di ri-portare il focus su un Autore, su un periodo storico, su teorie, su problemi, su metodologie e su comparazioni che tanto possono contribuire ad arricchire la trama intellettuale contemporanea che si va impoverendo di “tessuto” appiattendosi su una omogeneità acritica. La gestazione di questi contributi è stata lunga ed ha goduto della maieutica di Orazio Maria Valastro, direttore di “M@gm@”. Le riflessioni nascono con intento celebrativo dei cento anni dalla pubblicazione del “Trattato” ma aprono e attualizzano le teorie paretiane alla contemporaneità.

    Full Text Available The new Hall of Marcus Aurelius in the Capitoline Museums, located within the ancient site of Giardino Romano, displays the original statue of the Roman emperor of the 2nd century AD. The idea of extending the Capitoline Museums by including this site came about in the framework of its general redevelopment.11 The chronology of the design work stretches from 1993 to 2002; the works have been achieved between 2004 and 2005. The design leader was Carlo Aymonino and his collaborators architects Maria Luisa Tugnoli, Geneviève Hanssen, Raffaella Castrignanò. The structural design is by engineer Antonio Michetti, with Giuseppe Silvetti and architect Marco Astolfi. The new Hall is the result of a long and complicated process (1988–2005 considering the exceptional importance of the site and the many changes brought to the museum programme during the said period (Figures 1 and 2.In fact, the new Hall was originally supposed to display the marbles of the Temple of Apollo Sosianus, the foundation wall of the Temple of Capitoline Jupiter, embedded within the structures of the Palazzo Caffarelli, opposite the Giardino Romano. However, in 1997, the plan for the Capitoline Museum changed radically as the statue of Marcus Aurelius, which had been restored following the blast of a bomb attack in 1979, was determined to be the focus of the Hall. The project finally consisted of a steel and glass structure on an elliptic plan andshaped around the foundations of the Temple, with the statue at its center.

  12. [Sabuco's suco nerveo and the origins of neurochemistry in the Spanish Renaissance].

    Martin Araguz, A; Bustamante Martinez, C; Fernandez Armayor, V

    In the 16th century, at the height of the Spanish Renaissance, Bachiller Miguel Sabuco revolutionised medical theories about brain physiology with the publication of his work Nueva Filosof a in 1587. This work, which is mysteriously attributed to his daughter Luisa Oliva, presents a surprisingly gynocentric ideology for its time and has been reprinted on numerous occasions since its first edition saw the light. Sabuco s ideas have been plagiarised by such renowned authors as Descartes, Willis and Glisson. In stark contrast to the Arabized galenism based on the criterion of authority that predominated the medical practice of his time, Nueva Filosof a empirically promoted a modern approach to neurophysiology. This becomes even more worthy of merit if we bear in mind that Sabuco was not trained as a doctor but instead worked as an apothecary in Alcaraz (Albacete, Spain). The Bachiller granted the brain a commanding role over the organisation of the body for the first time in the history of medicine. He not only developed the surprising theory of succo nervoso (the nervous sap, or original neurotransmitting substance), but also an elegant digression on human nature that puts forward solid arguments about the dualist relation between mind and brain. He examined the association between emotional and physical health and explained how the emotions can impair health and lead to early death, which means he was also a pioneer in the development of psychosomatic medicine. Besides constituting the most illustrious forerunner of modern day neurochemistry, Sabuco s work also encourages doctors to treat their patients in an integral manner, with equal attention being given to the body, mind and soul. It comes as no surprise, then, that many aspects of his work can still be compared to modern medical and philosophical thought.

The free radical scavenging activity of the extracts was expressed as IC value (g/mL (necessary amount to inhibit the formation of 50% of DPPH radical. The low value of IC50 reflects better free radical scavenging action. Although most of the samples tested showed good antioxidant capacity with this method (DPPH, tests of hydroalcoholic extracts show that alcachofa (IC50 9.89 mg/mL, moringa (IC50 11.4 mg/mL and borraja (IC50 14.0 mg/mL were those with higher antioxidant capacity. Through chemical characterization tests, the presence of flavonoids, tannins, triterpenes, alkaloids and saponins were detected in most of the analyzed species (approximately 56-69%; only 20% of them showed the presence of polyphenols, cyanogenic glycosides, lactones, coumarins, anthraquinones and sterols. According to the results obtained, these plants might be considered as promising sources of secondary metabolites with antioxidant activity.

A wide range of atmospheric compounds which are present in rainwater are often also present in aerosol. They can be taken up during cloud droplet formation (in-cloud scavenging) or washed out during precipitation (below-cloud scavenging). Such compounds including aromatic hydrocarbons and organic nitrogen containing compounds are hazardous to health. In this study, the organic chemical composition of rainwater and aerosol from rain events in León, Spain, is being analysed using high resolution mass spectrometry. Collected rainwater along with high volume and low volume filters from rain events which occurred during spring, summer and winter of 2016 have been selected for analysis. Rainwater samples were prepared using Polymeric Reversed Phase Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) and filters have been extracted in water with and without SPE. Three different SPE polymer based sorbents were tested; one for extracting neutral compounds and two which are more suitable for extracting organic compounds containing sulphate and other polar functional groups. The sorbent for extracting neutral compounds was found to yield a higher number of compounds from the sample extraction than the other two varieties. Kendrick masses, Van Krevelen plots and carbon oxidation states have been investigated to identify compounds and patterns. Preliminary results show a predominance in peaks with O/C ratios between 0.2 and 0.7 and H/C ratios between 1 and 2 in both rain and aerosol samples which indicates substituted aromatic compounds. Cellulose material and fatty acids may also be present. The rain samples also have a

    Full Text Available Sin una armonización monetaria y la presencia de un banco central, el imperio Alemán, representa la experiencia más larga de un sistema de banca libre en los países industrializados de Europa en el Siglo XIX. La "banca libre" en el Reich estuvo marcada por la inestabilidad financiera y la violencia producto de las crisis bancarias en tiempos de guerra. Este artículo hace un análisis retrospectivo de las condiciones de estabilización del sistema bancario alemán a través de la creación de un banco central cuyas principales funciones era ser un prestamista de última instancia, establecimiento de reservas estratégicas de oro así como estabilización de la especulación bancaria. Entre 1876 y 1914, la regulación bancaria en el Reich Alemán tuvo el efecto de limitar el número de bancos emisores y neutralizar las crisis financieras sistémicas. A través de este ejemplo, se pudo observar cómo el naciente Reichsbank fue capaz de adaptarse a su nuevo entorno y llevar a cabo su misión de constituirse como banco central. Originalmente diseñado de manera similar al Banco de Inglaterra en términos de cobertura en la emisión de billetes, el Reichsbank trató de ser más flexible en su respuesta. El fijar un nivel socialmente aceptable de tasas de interés fue para los banqueros del siglo XIX, una decisión en la que la interpretación y la aceptación por parte de la sociedad capitalista era difíciles de predecir. Por otra parte, muchos de los elementos que escapaban al control del Reichsbank que fue el caso, por ejemplo, del futuro de la balanza comercial, que depende tanto de la competitividad en los precios del país así como de otros factores complejos que afectan la producción nacionales.

COPD is characterized by pulmonary and systemic inflammation. However, increases in the levels of inflammatory cytokines in plasma are found even when the disease is stable. Pulmonary rehabilitation improves physical exercise capacity and quality of life and decreases dyspnea. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a home-based pulmonary rehabilitation (HBPR program improves exercise tolerance in COPD patients, as well as health-related quality of life and systemic inflammation. This prospective study was conducted at the Laboratory of Functional Respiratory Evaluation, Nove de Julho University, São Paulo, Brazil. After anamnesis, patients were subjected to evaluations of health-related quality of life and dyspnea, spirometry, respiratory muscle strength, upper limbs incremental test, incremental shuttle walk test, and blood test for quantification of systemic inflammatory markers (interleukin [IL]-6 and IL-8. At the end of the evaluations, patients received a booklet containing the physical exercises to be performed at home, three times per week for 8 consecutive weeks. Around 25 patients were enrolled, and 14 completed the pre- and post-HBPR ratings. There was a significant increase in the walked distance and the maximal

However, not all patients are available for such a program despite discomfort with their condition. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a home-based PR (HBPR program on functional ability, quality of life, and respiratory muscle strength and endurance.Patients and methods: Patients with COPD according to the Global Initiative of Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease were randomized (double-blind into two groups. One group performed a protocol at home with aerobic and muscle strength exercises and was called the intervention group; the other group received only instructions to perform breathing and stretching exercises, characterizing it as the control group (CG. We assessed the following variables at baseline and 2 months: exercise tolerance (incremental shuttle walk test and upper limb test, respiratory muscle (strength and endurance test, and health-related quality of life (Airways Questionnaire 20.Results: There were no significant changes after the intervention in either of the two groups in exercise tolerance and quality of life. However, the intervention group had improved respiratory endurance compared with the CG, while the CG presented a decrease in the load sustained by the respiratory muscles after the HBPR.Conclusion: A program of HBPR with biweekly

We compared neuropsychological performance using language and Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE test scores before and after 24 and 48 stimulation sessions. The two groups were matched by age and years of schooling. Small groups of ten or fewer volunteers underwent the stimulation program, twice a week, over 6 months (48 sessions in total. Sessions were based on language and memory exercises, as well as visual, olfactory, auditory, and ludic stimulation, including music, singing, and dance. Both groups were assessed at the beginning (before stimulation, in the middle (after 24 sessions, and at the end (after 48 sessions of the stimulation program. Although the NI group showed higher performance in all tasks in all time windows compared with I subjects, both groups improved their performance after stimulation. In addition, the improvement was significantly higher in the I group than the NI group. Language tests seem to be more efficient than the MMSE to detect early changes in cognitive status. The results suggest the impoverished environment of long-term-care institutions may contribute to lower cognitive scores before stimulation and the higher improvement rate of this group after stimulation.

Fernanda Vieira Fernandes e Prof.ª Ma. Maria Amélia Gimmler Netto. A encenação parte do texto teatral Combate de negro e de cães, do autor francês Bernard-Marie Koltès, do livro Um útero é do tamanho de um punho, de Angélica Freitas, além de depoimentos dos artistas-criadores, canções, dados estatísticos e notícias atuais. A montagem ressalta relações de racismo por parte dos brancos ao principal personagem negro da peça, Alboury, e relações de machismo com a personagem Léone, única personagem feminina presente na peça. Considerando a questão histórica de mestiçagem no Brasil, composto também por africanos e índios, nesta montagem, a construção corporal e presença cênica do ator que interpreta Alboury tem como referenciais conceitos da religiosidade de matriz africana, em diálogo com o processo de direção da encenadora. Parte desta busca se detém às movimentações corporais das entidades de “Caboclos” vivenciadas pelo ator no Centro Espírita de Umbanda Caboclo Sete Estrelas, Pelotas/RS. Estes indivíduos viviam em comunidades, sua noção de coletividade e ancestralidade traçam o dialogismo com o personagem koltesiano. A representatividade do ator negro e seu personagem negro, ambos marginalizados em suas realidades, é também destacada neste texto, sob o viés das filosofias da religiosidade africana.

A systematic review approach was used to document the ongoing AHSyS initiatives (active systems and those in pilot phase and recent methodological developments. Clinical data from practitioners and laboratory data remain the main data sources for AHSyS. However, although not currently integrated into prospectively running initiatives, production data, mortality data, abattoir data, and new media sources (such as Internet searches have been the objective of an increasing number of publications seeking to develop and validate new AHSyS indicators. Some limitations inherent to AHSyS such as reporting sustainability and the lack of classification standards continue to hinder the development of automated syndromic analysis and interpretation. In an era of ubiquitous electronic collection of animal health data, surveillance experts are increasingly interested in running multivariate systems (which concurrently monitor several data streams as they are inferentially more accurate than univariate systems. Thus, Bayesian methodologies, which are much more apt to discover the interplay among multiple syndromic data sources, are foreseen to play a big part in the future of AHSyS. It has become clear that early detection of outbreaks may not be the principal expected benefit of AHSyS. As more systems will enter an active prospective phase, following the intensive development stage of the last 5 years, the study envisions AHSyS, in particular for livestock, to significantly contribute to future international-, national-, and local-level animal health intelligence, going beyond the detection and

Patients and methods: In this retrospective analysis, mRCC patients in two institutions in Latin America received sunitinib at a starting dose of either 50 mg/day for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks off treatment (Schedule 4/2 in repeated 6-week cycles or sunitinib 37.5 mg on a continuous daily dosing schedule. Clinical characteristics, tolerability, and PFS data were collected. Results: Twenty-nine patients with long-term clinical benefit from sunitinib were identified between September 2005 and August 2009. Median PFS was 23 months (range: 15–54 months. Two of the 29 patients with prolonged PFS achieved a complete response and additional eleven had a partial response. Most patients were aged <60 years, had good performance status, favorable or intermediate Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center prognostic risk, and disease limited to one or two sites. Dose reduction was necessary in all patients who started sunitinib at 50 mg/day administered on Schedule 4/2. Adverse events leading to dose reduction included grade 3 hand–foot syndrome, mucositis, fatigue, and hypertension. At the time of data cutoff, four patients were still receiving sunitinib treatment. Conclusion: Extended PFS can be achieved in Latin American patients with mRCC treated with sunitinib. Although the small sample size and retrospective nature of this evaluation preclude the identification of pretreatment predictive factors contributing to this benefit, the current analysis warrants

Oxidative stress occurs from the imbalance between RONS production and these antioxidant defenses. Aging is a process characterized by the progressive loss of tissue and organ function. The oxidative stress theory of aging is based on the hypothesis that age-associated functional losses are due to the accumulation of RONS-induced damages. At the same time, oxidative stress is involved in several age-related conditions (ie, cardiovascular diseases [CVDs], chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer, including sarcopenia and frailty. Different types of oxidative stress biomarkers have been identified and may provide important information about the efficacy of the treatment, guiding the selection of the most effective drugs/dose regimens for patients and, if particularly relevant from a pathophysiological point of view, acting on a specific therapeutic target. Given the important role of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of many clinical conditions and aging, antioxidant therapy could positively affect the natural history of

    The implementation of RUSLE2015 for modelling soil loss by water erosion at European scale has introduced important aspects related to management practices. The policy measurements such as reduced tillage, crop residues, cover crops, grass margins, stone walls and contouring have been incorporated in the RUSLE2015 modelling platform. The recent policy interventions introduced in Good Agricultural Environmental Conditions of Common Agricultural Policy have reduced the rate of soil loss in the EU by an average of 9.5% overall, and by 20% for arable lands (NATURE, 526, 195). However, further economic and political action should rebrand the value of soil as part of ecosystem services, increase the income of rural land owners, involve young farmers and organize regional services for licensing land use changes (Land Degradation and Development, 27 (6): 1547-1551). RUSLE2015 is combining the future policy scenarios and land use changes introduced by predictions of LUISA Territorial Modelling Platform. Latest developments in RUSLE2015 allow also incorporating the climate change scenarios and the forthcoming intensification of rainfall in North and Central Europe contrary to mixed trends in Mediterranean basin. The rainfall erosivity predictions estimate a mean increase by 18% in European Union by 2050. Recently, a module of CENTURY model was coupled with the RUSLE2015 for estimating the effect of erosion in current carbon balance in European agricultural lands (Global Change Biology, 22(5), 1976-1984; 2016). Finally, the monthly erosivity datasets (Science of the Total Environment, 579: 1298-1315) introduce a dynamic component in RUSLE2015 and it is a step towards spatio-temporal soil erosion mapping at continental scale. The monthly mapping of rainfall erosivity permits to identify the months and the areas with highest risk of soil loss where conservation measures should apply in different seasons of the year. In the future, the soil erosion-modelling platform will

There is not any formal treatment for this pathological condition. However, several studies reported the possibility to perform testicular sperm extraction in patients with SCOS, although, according to some authors, sperm retrieval is possible only in the presence of focal spermatogenesis. We report the case of an infertile couple in whom the 30-year-old male was azoospermic. After the diagnosis, the patient underwent multiple bilateral testicular biopsies, which showed a histological pattern corresponding to SCOS. We administered a cycle of hormone stimulation followed by medically assisted procreation procedures to the male patient. Therefore, the male patient was treated with follicle-stimulating hormone gonadotropin for a total of 7 months (150 IU recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone three times per week. After carrying out a new multiple testicular sperm extraction, several spermatozoa were microscopically observed, and it was then possible to perform an intracytoplasmic sperm injection with subsequent embryo transfer of the blastocyst into the wife’s uterus, and so pregnancy was

The formulations were stabilized with poloxamer 188 (1.66% and 3.5% and submitted individually for freeze-drying and γ-irradiation with polyethylene glycol 3350 (PEG3350 and d-(+-trehalose (TRE. Both formulations satisfied criteria according to all physicochemical parameters required for ocular pharmaceuticals. The FB-PεCL-NP formulations showed non-Newtonian behavior and sustained drug release. Ex vivo permeation analysis using isolated ocular pig tissues suggested that the presence of PEG3350 results in a reduction of FB transcorneal permeation. Moreover, TRE improved the penetration of FB across the cornea, especially after γ-irradiation. In addition, both formulations did not show a significant affinity in increasing FB transscleral permeation. Both formulations were classified as nonirritating, safe products for ophthalmic administration according to hen’s egg test-chorioallantoic membrane and Draize eye test. Furthermore, an in vivo anti-inflammatory efficacy test showed that irradiated FB-PεCL-NPs prepared with PEG3350 (IR-NPsPEG have longer anti-inflammatory effects than those presented with irradiated FB-PεCL-NPs prepared with TRE (IR-NPsTRE. IR-NPsPEG showed a suitable physical stability after an aqueous reconstitution over .30 days. This study concludes that both formulations meet the Goldman’s criteria and demonstrate how irradiated nanoparticles, with innovative permeation characteristics

The NPs were prepared by the solvent displacement method following two different pathways. One involved preparation of PLGA NPs followed by PEG and peptide conjugation (PLGA-NPs-PEG-peptide; the other involved self-assembly of PLGA-PEG and the PLGA-PEG-peptide copolymer followed by NP formulation. The conjugation of the PEG and the peptide was confirmed by a colorimetric test and proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Flurbiprofen was used as an example of an anti-inflammatory drug. The physicochemical properties of the resulting NPs (morphology, in vitro release, cell viability, and ocular tolerance were studied. In vivo anti-inflammatory efficacy was assessed in rabbit eyes after topical instillation of sodium arachidonate. Of the formulations developed, the PLGA-PEG-POD NPs were the smaller particles and exhibited greater entrapment efficiency and more sustained release. The positive charge on the surface of these NPs, due to the conjugation with the positively charged peptide, facilitated penetration into the corneal epithelium, resulting in more effective prevention of ocular inflammation. The in vitro toxicity of the NPs developed was very low; no ocular irritation

Lucia Foundation, Rome, 3Faculty of Medicine, Biochemistry and Clinical Biochemistry Institute, Catholic University of the “Sacred Heart”, Rome, Italy Abstract: The success and the quality of hemodialysis therapy are mainly related to both clearance and biocompatibility properties of the artificial membrane packed in the hemodialyzer. Performance of a membrane is strongly influenced by its interaction with the plasma protein repertoire during the extracorporeal procedure. Recognition that a number of medium–high molecular weight solutes, including proteins and protein-bound molecules, are potentially toxic has prompted the development of more permeable membranes. Such membrane engineering, however, may cause loss of vital proteins, with membrane removal being nonspecific. In addition, plasma proteins can be adsorbed onto the membrane surface upon blood contact during dialysis. Adsorption can contribute to the removal of toxic compounds and governs the biocompatibility of a membrane, since surface-adsorbed proteins may trigger a variety of biologic blood pathways with pathophysiologic consequences. Over the last years, use of proteomic approaches has allowed polypeptide spectrum involved in the process of hemodialysis, a key issue previously hampered by lack of suitable technology, to be assessed in an unbiased manner and in its full complexity. Proteomics has been successfully applied to identify and quantify proteins in complex mixtures such as dialysis outflow fluid and fluid desorbed from dialysis membrane containing adsorbed proteins. The identified proteins can also be characterized by their involvement in metabolic and signaling pathways, molecular networks, and biologic processes through application of bioinformatics tools. Proteomics may

However, nHAp presents low fracture toughness and tensile strength, limiting its application in bone tissue engineering. Conversely, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs have been widely used for composite applications due to their excellent mechanical and physicochemical properties, although their hydrophobicity usually impairs some applications. To improve MWCNT wettability, oxygen plasma etching has been applied to promote MWCNT exfoliation and oxidation and to produce graphene oxide (GO at the end of the tips. Here, we prepared a series of nHAp/MWCNT-GO nanocomposites aimed at producing materials that combine similar bone characteristics (nHAp with high mechanical strength (MWCNT-GO.

The effects of recreational physical activity and a health-habit orientation program using an illustrated diary on the cardiovascular risk profile of overweight and obese children was investigated. Methods: The weight and height of 314 schoolchildren aged between 9 and 11 years old, in a public school in Brasilia, Federal District, Brazil, were recorded. According to the body mass index (BMI classification proposed by the World Health Organization, 84 were overweight or obese for their age and sex. Of these children, 34 (40% participated in the study. Students were divided into two groups matched for sex, age, BMI, percent body fat (%BF: the intervention group (IG, n = 17 and the control group (CG, n = 17. The IG underwent a program of 10 weeks of exercise with recreational activities and health-habit orientation using an illustrated diary of habits, while no such interventions were used with the CG during the study period. Before and after the intervention, the children's weight, height, BMI, %BF, waist circumference (WC, maximum oxygen intake (VO2max, total cholesterol (TC, high density lipoprotein (HDL, low density lipoprotein (LDL, triglycerides, glucose, eating habits, and physical activity level (PAL were assessed.

    Two teachers from the town of San Pedro de Atacama, in the northern desert of the South American nation of Chile, arrive in Magdalena, New Mexico, Sunday, January 28, for a two-week visit that is part of a Sister Cities program sponsored by Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI), the nonprofit research corporation that operates the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). They will be accompanied by their town's mayor. Myriam Nancy Rivera Mercado, Head of the high school in San Pedro, Gabriela Fernanda Rodriguez Moraleda, a tourism teacher there, and San Pedro Mayor Sandra Berna Martinez will begin a visit that includes classroom observations in the Magdalena schools, a reception hosted by the Magdalena Village Council, and a Mayor's Breakfast with Magdalena Mayor Jim Wolfe. They also will meet local residents, tour the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge with a second-grade class, visit an area ranch, tour the Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope, and see Socorro's Community Arts Party. "These teachers will learn much about New Mexico, the United States, and our educational system, and will take this new knowledge back to their students and their community," said NRAO Education Officer Robyn Harrison. The visit is part of a Sister Cities program initiated and funded by AUI, which operates the NRAO for the U.S. National Science Foundation. Radio astronomy is a common link between San Pedro de Atacama and Magdalena. San Pedro is near the site of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an international telescope project now under construction with funding by major partners in North America, Europe, and Japan. Magdalena is near the site of NRAO's VLA radio telescope. In Magdalena, the Village Council and Mayor Wolfe formalized their participation in the Sister Cities program last September, and San Pedro ratified the program in December. In San Pedro, the ceremony ratifying the agreement was attended by U.S. Ambassador to Chile Craig K

    Esta sesión solemne que celebramos hoy, gracias a la obligante solicitud del cadémico Laurentino Muñoz, ha debido realizarse el año pasado, pero debido a múltiples inconvenientes y al congestionado calendario de las actividades de la Academia, ello no fue posible, por lo cual rogamos a los oyentes se sirvan disimular la tardanza de esta celebración.

    Para la Academia Nacional de Medicina que ha conservado a través de los años una severa tradición de reconocimiento de los valores humanos, es especialmente grato rendir este homenaje de admiración a los ilustres hombres de ciencia que la honraron con sus ejecutorias ya los distinguidos miembros de la profesión médica que tuvieron su raigambre en ese maravilloso rincón de la patria: el departamento del Huila.

    Aprovechando esta ocasión, vamos a colocar en la galería de los presidentes, los retratos de dos ilustres académicos: del miembro honorario profesor Antonio María Barriga Villalba y el del miembro de número doctor Arturo Arboleda.

    El limitado tiempo de que dispongo, me impide hacer un relato detenido de la vida de Barriga Villalba, y un estudio crítico a fondo de su obra. Me limitaré con la venia de la audiencia, a destacar sólamente algunas realizaciones de sus actividades y de su dedicación a la docencia, pidiéndoles disculpas por las omisiones que pudieran tener estas pocas palabras.

    Nació en Bogotá el día 9 de junio de 1894. Contrajo matrimonio con doña Luisa Del Diestro de cuya unión hubo tres hijos: Luis, Antonio y Fernando. Murió este año a la edad cumplida de 91 años, rodeado del amor y cariño de los suyos.

    Hizo sus estudios secundarios en el Colegio Mayor de Nuestra Señora del Rosario, bajo la dirección del doctor Liborio Zerda, en donde recibió el título de bachiller. Por su dedicación, por sus dotes de inteligencia, fue nombrado colegial de número, posición reservada a muy pocos estudiantes sobresalientes del

Marie Favereau separately thanked the responsible editors of the publication, Ilnur Mirgaleev and Roman Hautala, for the great work in preparing the book for publication. In his presentation, the responsible editor and coordinator of the project, Ilnur Mirgaleev, spoke about the work on the project, on the problems and prospects of the Golden Horde researches. In particular, he noted that representatives of various research schools participated in the writing of this book setting a trend thereby for all national historiographies. In his opinion, this book is also important because it defines new priority directions for specialists in the most diverse areas of medieval history of the vast Eurasian space. At the end of the conference, Luisa Bukharaeva talked about the poetry of the Golden Horde.

    the original. After revision and correction, the translation was finally accepted. Balmis did not obtain the authorization to include a dedication to Queen María Luisa, however, which would have increased the book's impact, as it was not considered a singular work of its kind or one of outstanding merit. Finally, Balmis dedicated his work to the mothers of families. With an initial print run of 500 copies, which was followed immediately by 2,000 more, his work was widely distributed throughout Hispanic America. The study notes the influence of the reviewers in the quality of scientific production.

Šlejhar and R. Svobodová was presented by Camill Hoffmann and Oskar Wiener. Their mediation activities were based on direct relations with Prague Czech authors of the youngest generation, on whom Hoffmann also focused in his articles for other German journals, though in Aus fremden Zungen he was concerned with surveying the modernist work of the 1890s. Samples of Czech prose were followed on by translations from modern Czech lyric poetry (O. Březina, A. Sova, K. Hlaváček and V. Dyk written by Otto Hauser. This polyglot and translator from numerous languages was a different kind of Viennese mediator. In contrast to Wellek and Hoffmann, Hauser was only in sporadic correspondence with Sova and Březina. His literary assessment of their poetry was based on his broad knowledge of contemporary European poetry, including minor literatures (such as Danish, Dutch and Croatian and as such is of importance. These examples show that literary mediation is a complex rapprochement of variously defined and construed contexts, which have their reflected and unrealized limits.

    .961, 95% CI 0.937-0.967), suggesting that the process was successful to separate different levels of performance. A factor analysis of collected data showed that three factors, trembling, speed, and accuracy, accounted for 76.79% of the total variance, but only two of them were predictors of performance in a regression analysis: accuracy (P=.001) and speed (P=.002). The other factor, trembling (P=.79), did not have a significant effect on this dependent variable. The EDUCERE DDSS is ready to use the regression equation obtained for the dependent variable "performance" as an algorithm for the automatic detection of psychomotor developmental delays. The results of the factor analysis are valuable to simplify the design of the smart toy by taking into account only the significant variables in the collector module. The fine-tuning of the toy process module will be carried out by following the specifications resulting from the analysis of the data to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the product. ©María Angeles Gutiérrez García, María Luisa Martín Ruiz, Diego Rivera, Laura Vadillo, Miguel Angel Valero Duboy.

To this end, we aimed to identify and compare the views of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM patients, physicians and pharmacists concerning the factors and strategies that may be associated with, or could improve, medication adherence and persistence.Methods: An observational, cross-sectional study was conducted using an electronic self-administered questionnaire comprising 11 questions (5-point Likert scale concerning factors and strategies related to medication adherence. The survey was designed for T2DM patients and Spanish National Health System professionals.Results: A total of 963 T2DM patients, 998 physicians and 419 pharmacists participated in the study. Overall, a lower proportion of pharmacists considered the proposed factors associated with medication adherence important as compared to patients and physicians. It should be noted that a higher percentage of physicians in comparison to pharmacists perceived that “complexity of medication” (97% vs 76.6%, respectively and “adverse events” (97.5% vs 72.2%, respectively were important medication-related factors affecting adherence. In addition, both patients (80.8% and physicians (80.8% agreed on the importance of “cost and co-payment” for adherence

    Full Text Available Dear Internext readers and collaborators, We are pleased to release the second issue of volume 12 of Internext, the first in which the magazine is rated as B2 by, Qualis Periodicos. In this issue, we have six articles that all carry, I believe, important theoretical and managerial contributions, as well as suggestions of new research questions. I highlight some of these contributions this editorial. In "THE PROFILE OF THE UNIVERSITY MANAGER OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN BRAZIL", Fernanda Geremias Leal, Rafaela Ribeiro Céspedes and Luciane Stallivieri outline the profile of the international cooperation managers of the Brazilian federal public universities. From the data analysis of 46 of these institutions, they identify the positive aspects and the problems of the positioning of the international relations department in the university structure. It also analyses the personal experience of managers with activities of an international nature. Given the relevance and timeliness of the theme of internationalization of universities in the exchange of students and professors among others, and given the lack of information about these activities in Brazilian universities, this is a timely and essential contribution for those who research university management in general and its internationalization in particular. In POLITICAL PERSPECTIVES OF RELATIONSHIP NETWORKS TO INTERNATIONALIZATION OF FIRMS IN AN EMERGING COUNTRY, Jefferson Marlon Monticelli, Silvio Luís de Vasconcellos e Ivan Lapuente Garrido analyze, using the political perspective of neo-institutionalism, how institutions, especially government, influence the internationalization of Brazilian Wine sector They contribute to the understanding of how the political relationship takes within the economic sectors and between government and business sectors occur. Hardly any academic contribution could fit in better than this the Brazilian institutional context today. EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF

    Examination of over 1,400 specimens of the neotropical genus Metaleptobasis Calvert, 1907, including primary types or paratypes of 18 of the 20 currently available species names and large series of specimens including pairs in tandem and copula, allowed me to unequivocally associate older names with species, distinguish between specific and intraspecific variability, associate both sexes for each species, and recognize the existence of female polymorphism. As a result, seven names are found to be junior synonyms: Metaleptobasis mauritia Williamson, 1915 junior synonym of M. bicornis (Selys, 1877), M. manicaria Williamson, 1915 and M. fernandezi Rácenis, 1955 junior synonyms of M. diceras (Selys, 1877), M. westfalli Cumming, 1954 junior synonym of M. foreli Ris, 1915, and M. tetragena Calvert, 1947, M. weibezahni Rácenis, 1955, and M. incisula De Marmels, 1989 junior synonyms of M. brysonima Williamson, 1915. Lectotypes are designated for M. amazonica and Leptobasis diceras. Eighteen new species of Metaleptobasis are described: M. brevicauda (Holotype ♂, Peru, Huánuco Dep., Shapajilla, jungle, 11 v 1939, F. Woytkowski leg., in UMMZ); M. falcifera (Holotype ♂, Peru, Madre De Dios Dep., Pakitza, Reserved Zone, Manu National Park, T2 to R2 to T1 to base camp, 11°55'48''S, 71°15'18''W, 250 m, 17 ix 1989, J.A.

Le domaine des technologies du langage est exploré par la contribution de Jana Volk qui, se fondant sur les enregistrements authentiques de la parole spontanée, propose une évaluation du système de transcription ToBi. L'analyse des interfaces entre l'oral et l'écrit est introduit par l'étude de Gregory Bennet qui analyse la représentation du rire sur le réseau Twitter et continue par l'analyse de Nives Lenassi examine les éléments du discours parlé dans la correspondance d'affaire. Jacqueline Oven analyse le fonctionnement des particules à l'écrit et à l'oral tandis que l'étude de Mojca Schlamberger Brezar se fonde autour de l'hypothèse que les marqueurs discursifs indiquent le degré de spontanéité dans différentes situations d'énonciation. Les études qui s'articulent autour de l'analyse pragmatique essaient d'intercepter des phénomènes du discours parlé dans des contextes variés : Elenmari Pletikos Olof et Jagoda Poropat Darrer analysent la perception de paroles cérémonielles, Golnaz Nanbakhsh remet en question l'emploi des pronoms de tutoiement et de vouvoiement lors de l'expression de pouvoir, Darinka Verdonik et Zdravko Kačič examinent le rôle des expressions chrétiennes dans les conversations quotidiennes. Tamara Mikolič Južnič aborde le phénomène de la nominalisation et Mojca Smolej présente les spécificités du discours rapporté dans l'échange oral spontané. L'analyse d'Iztok Kosem et de Darinka Verdonik propose les résultats concernant le vocabulaire typique dans le discours public et privé, et l'étude de Juliano Desiderato Antonio et Fernanda Trombini Rahmen Cassim présente certains éléments intrinsèques de l’oral à travers l’optique des relations de cohérence entre les différentes unités textuelles.

    , portanto, esquadrinhar esse movimento de luta simbólica que apresenta nos discursos investigados instigantes evidências do que estava em debate no período.Os resultados obtidos até o momento, e que estão presentes nos artigos que compõem este dossiê, parecem reafirmar a pertinência do estudo da temática e a necessidade na continuidade da investigação. Os textos a seguir permitem, desde já, a apreciação de aspectos relevantes acerca dessas questões.Em O tempo, a idade e a permanência na escola: um estudo a partir dos livros de matrícula (Rio Grande do Sul, 1895-1919, Natália de Lacerda Gil e Joseane El Hawat analisam livros de matrícula a fim de compreender as idades predominantes dos indivíduos que frequentavam a escola e por quanto tempo, em média, eles permaneciam na instituição. Essa investigação evidencia que os alunos ficavam pouco tempo numa mesma escola e permite avançar na hipótese de que a duração do período de escolarização estava pautada muito mais por aspectos da vida familiar do que pelas razões propriamente escolares.O artigo Meritocracia e os usos da repetência na escola primária pública francesa de 1850 ao início do século 20, de Jérôme Krop, permite vislumbrar o caráter excludente da reprovação dos alunos em início da escolarização, resultando na acentuação das desigualdades educacionais, apesar dos esforços de modernização pedagógica empreendidos pelos republicanos franceses num importante período de expansão da escola primária naquele país. Em seguida, propomos acompanhar semelhante questão para o caso do Distrito Federal.Sobre as estatísticas educacionais oficiais, nesse caso em Minas Gerais, que Sandra Maria Caldeira-Machado e Fernanda Cristina Campos da Rocha abordam no artigo A invisibilidade dos problemas de percurso dos alunos: dos registros escolares à fabricação das estatísticas educacionais oficiais (Minas Gerais, 1907-1917.

    ópicos, dos notas de investigación y dos reseñas. Los trabajos temáticos se relacionan con investigaciones y revisiones de las políticas de segunda generación aplicadas en educación básica en el Uruguay a partir del 2005. Estas políticas educativas, denominadas por algunos investigadores de inclusión, han diseñado diversos programas y dispositivos de trabajo con el objetivo de inscribir a todos los sujetos de la educación en el ámbito escolar. La actualización del mandato moderno y la pansofía comeniana que se reflejan en estas políticas, en la actualidad, se enfrentan a nuevas tensiones vinculadas con los procesos de segregación de los sujetos que viven en situación de pobreza y con las dificultades y alteraciones producidas en los procesos de transmisión cultural. En este sentido, la enseñanza y las tareas educativas desarrolladas en la educación básica colisionan con necesidades de socialización y contención de los sujetos de la educación. En este contexto, tres de los artículos temáticos incluidos en este número son fruto del trabajo de la línea de investigación “Políticas Educativas, Curriculum y Enseñanza” del Departamento de Enseñanza y Aprendizaje del Instituto de Educación. El texto de Balmelli, Conde y Melgar, “El Plan de Formación Profesional Básica en el marco de la inclusión educativa: principales tensiones en el discurso docente”, analiza las alteraciones a la forma escolar que este plan plantea así como las tensiones entre enseñanza / contención y el lugar que adquieren los sujetos de la educación. A partir de un exhaustivo trabajo de campo e indagación en torno a los discursos docentes sobre la implementación del plan, sus propuestas curriculares y el rol docente los autores aportan elementos analíticos que permitan re-pensar la educación en clave de justicia e igualdad.   El trabajo de Fernanda Ventós, “Sentidos de la trayectoria escolar.

Identificam questionamentos e processos de vigilância quanto ao gênero e à sexualidade do/a docente que se “arrisca” a discutir a temática, e a exigência de um padrão heterossexual da/o professora/professor. Por outro lado, mostram como a intervenção influenciou algumas/alguns discentes em direção ao reconhecimento das diferenças e das consequências advindas dos processos discriminatórios, como a homofobia. Por sua vez, o artigo “Gênero e formação docente: reflexões de uma professora”, de autoria de Jeane Félix, traz reflexões tecidas ao longo de sua trajetória como docente e como assessora técnica em órgãos da gestão federal, responsável por acompanhar ações de formação docente inicial e continuada, em diferentes cidades e regiões do país. A autora argumenta sobre a importância de incorporar a perspectiva de gênero na atuação docente, a partir de dimensões de saber-fazer, num esforço teórico-prático para formar professores/as capazes de intervir em situações de violência, desrespeito, preconceito. E mostra que existem desafios de diversas ordens a serem enfrentados conjuntamente pelas instituições de ensino superior, pelas políticas públicas e pelos/as próprios/as docentes visando a construção/invenção de espaços educativos mais plurais e menos desiguais.

    abordados pelos estudos de caso: motivações para internacionalizar, estratégias de internacionalização, modos de entrada, padrões de operação, desempenho das empresas varejistas e desinvestimento. Para cada tema, os autores resumem os principais achados das pesquisas como, por exemplo, as diferenças com relação a tipos específicos de varejistas. Os autores sustentam que os estudos de caso parecem ter contribuído de forma relevante para o desenvolvimento do processo de  internacionalização e para a construção de novas teorias aplicáveis a formatos varejistas, como os de marcas próprias e franquias. Concluem também que, em função da influência do contexto sobre o fenômeno da internacionalização do varejo, o potencial dos estudos de caso na área de estudos internacionais ainda não foi totalmente explorado. Em “How institutional voids influence Brazilian foreign direct investment in Angola” Renato Virches e Fernanda Ribeiro Cahen dão uma significativa contribuição ao entendimento de como as multinacionais usam os vazios institucionais como oportunidades de mercado, mostrando as particularidades de como isso se dá na relação entre multinacionais brasileiras e os vazios institucionais em Angola. A partir da análise de como as multinacionais brasileiras fazem isso em Angola, sugerem generalizações teóricas possíveis para a relação de multinacionais de países emergentes em outros países emergentes, um tema ainda pouco explorado pela pesquisa sobre institutional voids. Além de uma descrição rica do contexto institucional daquele país africano, descendo a detalhes dos mercados de produtos, capital e mão de obra, o artigo também descreve as estratégias de empresas brasileiras para lidar com os vazios em cada um desses conjuntos de instituições. As informações contidas e as conclusões são relevantes para pesquisadores estudando o tema de vazios institucionais não só em Angola e do ponto de vista de empresas brasileiras, mas

    revealed as a mediator between experience and expression. Its conceptual reconstruction is undertaken again, in order to achieve a concept of anthropological time that is solidary with those already rebuilt, thanks to the complementarity between the concept of time as quehacer (as task defined by José Ortega y Gasset, the temporeidad of Xavier Zubiri and the tiempo mediador (mediator time of María Zambrano. The last duality to be resolved, the relationship between memory and history, both pierced by the experience of time, is solved by addressing the issue from expression in history, and interpreting it as an attribution of temporality, which leads to the analysis of Gadamer and Ricoeur's works. Thus a current concept of experience is defined, one that assumes the internal and external continuous transitoriness as an element of the reality in which man is integrated, not as a cogitative subject but as an indissoluble part, in which the mnemonic art is perfectly integrated as a spiritual operation of meaning. After the first two sections, devoted respectively to the historical evolution of the concepts of memory and experience, the third chapter, “Experiencia estética y estética de la experiencia: tiempo y memoria en conclusión” (Aesthetic experience and aesthetics of experience: time and memory, in conclusion, closes with the historical-conceptual reconstruction. The findings raised here lead research into the field of education, since, in Esther Zarzo's view, aesthetic education of the memory is the first step toward regaining the experience of intentional time. And as such, the argument that Bildung is put before that of Form, is recovered here. A Bildung in which what is fundamental is not the resulting product, but the interior forming process in constant development. The realization that is explored is precisely its compound element of Bild, of image; that image that is imitated and in turn, also modelled to imitate, build and developed by oneself. The matter

The purpose of this study is to analyze the application of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs within tertiary education in a Spanish University. The results of analyzes indicated that a new initiative developed by the University of Zaragoza through an innovative project for a virtual campus called ‘Anillo Digital Docente’. Data relating to the degree of WebCT’s use is analyzed, as well as the academic results achieved by the students using it. These results are compared with the results achieved by other students studying in a traditional teaching setting. Several conclusions are drawn from this comparison: firstly, on how effective these technologies are within regulated university education; and secondly, on how beneficial the extension of its application would be to other educational areas.The first article is a joint study which its authors are from turkey on “Live Authority In The Classroom In Video Conference-Based Synchronous Distance Education: The Teaching Assistant” written by Hasan KARAL, Ayça ÇEBI and Yigit Emrah TURGUT from Karadeniz Technical University, Fatih Faculty of Education, Trabzon. The aim of this study was to define the role of the assistant in a classroom environment where students are taught using video conference-based synchronous distance education. Qualitative research approach was adopted and, among purposeful sampling methods, criterion sampling method was preferred in the scope of the study.

    úne artigos de Natália de Lacerda Gil e Joseane El Hawat, ambas da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, que observaram tempo, idade e permanência em escolas do Rio Grande do Sul entre 1895 e 1919 e propõem uma produtiva reflexão sobre os documentos da pesquisa, em especial a escrituração escolar.Em seguida, o pesquisador francês Jérôme Krop, em diálogo com o grupo de pesquisa contemplado no dossiê, sugere atenção à constatação acerca dos usos da repetência no ensino primário francês no século 19, que revelam até que ponto esta era utilizada para facilitar a aprendizagem dos melhores alunos e findam por sentenciar que para algumas crianças restaria apenas os anos iniciais de escolarização. O que temos a dizer sobre essa incisiva questão nos dias atuais?Outro artigo do dossiê, de Sandra Maria Caldeira-Machado, da USP, e Fernanda Cristina Campos da Rocha, da UFMG, analisam registros escolares de Minas Gerais entre os anos de1907 a1917 e instigam pensar sobre a invisibilidade dos problemas associados ao percurso dos estudantes, sobretudo quando as estatísticas oficiais mostram-se como fabricações de determinadas visibilidades e verdades.André Paulilo, da Unicamp, aborda as políticas públicas de educação na cidade do Rio de Janeiro nos anos 1930, com atenção especial à produção das estatísticas oficiais para compreender a organização dos serviços escolares e as estratégias para conter a evasão e a repetência. Assim, controle da população escolar é novamente tematizado com demonstrações diversas e específicas ao caso examinado. Outra variação da complexidade do problema proposto pelo dossiê se volta aos conhecimentos especializados.Ana Laura Godinho Lima e Luciana Maria Viviani, ambas da USP, examinam esses conhecimentos especializados sobre os problemas de rendimento escolar valendo-se de uma documentação particularmente fecunda para perscrutar os regimes discursivos e a produção de verdades, uma vez que s
