    Full Text Available Em setembro de 2007, o novo regime jurídico das Instituições de Ensino Superior (RJIES, Lei nº 62/2007, de 10 de setembro, introduziu um novo enquadramento de opções de modelos e estruturas de governação nas Instituições de Ensino Superior (IES em Portugal. O ambiente externo de mudança, comum no contexto europeu, onde as IES adaptam suas acções estratégicas aos desafios da "Declaração de Lisboa", está na ordem do dia. O quadro de opções sobre modelos de governo e de gestão, que são cada vez mais discutidos numa perspectiva de competitividade, permite vantagens e reduz desvantagens comparativas em face das instituições privadas. Se, no contexto europeu, a concepção e o desenho de modelos de governo estão geralmente a convergir, esbatendo as diferenças entre o modelo de gestão das instituições privadas e públicas, em que medida a implementação dos modelos provoca mudanças visíveis no imediato em nível institucional? Em Portugal, a maioria das IES públicas optou pelo modelo tradicional, tendo visto já seus estatutos homologados e publicados em Diário da República. Apenas três instituições optaram pelo modelo fundacional. A presente investigação institucional visa analisar, a partir da metodologia de Clark, as alterações introduzidas nas IES públicas ao nível operacional e de gestão, no sentido de uma universidade empreendedora. Para o efeito, o estudo baseia-se na análise das opções institucionais que as IES enfrentam, ou seja, na possibilidade de escolha entre o tradicional quadro jurídico (direito público e um novo quadro legal e organizacional (fundações públicas a operar sob o direito privado, a partir da análise dos estatutos entretanto já adotados. Pretende-se ainda integrar a perspectiva do olhar dos elementos externos que passaram recentemente, por via da lei, a integrar os órgãos máximos de governação das universidades públicas: os Conselhos Gerais.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta um novo modelo para a previsão de demanda de inovações radicais baseada em simulação de Dinâmica de Sistemas que combina conceitos do modelo de difusão de Bass e do modelo de escolha discreta. Diferentemente de outras abordagens existentes, esta proposta permite estimar não somente a fatia de mercado do produto, mas também seu comportamento no tempo (timing, a partir das preferências individuais do consumidor e das forças que as influenciam. O modelo proposto pode ser facilmente parametrizado através da Conjoint Analysis e foi testado em escala real no mercado alemão de carros elétricos. Os resultados obtidos colocam em evidência o potencial da abordagem proposta, auxiliando na compreensão dos principais fatores na escolha desse produto.

CONCLUSION: Medical schools interested in the subject may adopt the new model for training in videosurgery without the need of high costs for making and using these models.OBJETIVO: Desenvolver um novo modelo experimental de baixo custo para treinamento em videocirurgia MÉTODOS: Este projeto foi conduzido no Núcleo de Cirurgia Experimental da Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública, baseado em modelos prévios descritos na literatura e sob a supervisão do professor titular de Técnica Operatória e Cirurgia Experimental II. Foi feito um modelo em formato de cubo, de madeira, com furos distribuídos em vários locais, tampas de borracha para os orifícios e forrado externamente com carpete e internamente com laminado. RESULTADOS: O novo modelo experimental desenvolvido é de baixo custo e reproduz de forma bastante fiel diversos procedimentos videocirúrgicos. CONCLUSÃO: Faculdades médicas interessadas no tema poderão adotar o novo modelo para o treinamento em videocirurgia sem que sejam necessários gastos elevados para a confecção e o uso desses modelos.

  4. Novo Modelo de Armadilha para Captura de Scolytinae e Platypodinae (Insecta, Coleoptera

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Acacio Geraldo de Carvalho

    Full Text Available RESUMO O monitoramento de insetos é atividade relevante no processo de avaliação da sanidade de povoamentos florestais, bem como em estudos ecológicos. Dessa forma, geralmente, os levantamentos são realizados utilizando-se armadilhas de captura. Em especial para os grupos Scolytinae e Platypodinae, são empregadas armadilhas de impacto, iscadas com álcool 96 ºGL. Sendo assim, este trabalho tem o objetivo de descrever um novo modelo desse tipo de equipamento, denominado SEMIFUNIL. O projeto propõe o uso de materiais alternativos na fabricação da armadilha: garrafa PET de 2000 mL, mangueira plástica, prato plástico e arame, buscando com isso redução de custos.

  6. RETORNOS DE ESCALA EM DEA: CRÍTICAS AO BCC E NOVO MODELO

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available Tomando como base o clássico modelo DEA CCR utilizado para medir a eficiência de DMUs analisadas (Decision Making Units, o presente artigo tem como objetivo apresentar um modelo capaz de medir retornos de escala variáveis; crescentes, constantes e decrescentes. Muitos estudos já alertam para problemas na formulação do modelo DEA BCC, entre eles: eficiências negativas, eficiências por default, a invalidez do fator de escala para soluções múltiplas e a incapacidade do modelo verificar retornos crescentes de escala. Segundo é desenvolvido neste estudo, o modelo DEA BCC não vislumbra em seus resultados uma análise de escala real conforme defendida pelos autores. A fronteira eficiente exposta pelo modelo BCC sempre apresenta retornos de escala decrescentes, negligenciando retornos crescentes de escala. Para tanto apresenta-se uma interpretação dos reais significados dos resultados do modelo BCC e,posteriormente, o estudo apresenta um algoritmo que solucione tal problema.

    Full Text Available Este texto es una reflexión en torno a la categoría de modelos, que piensa con modelos, a partir de los modelos y para los modelos; también se piensa, se interpreta, se revisa, el significado del modelo. Y esto no sólo por lo que estos exigen su lugar desde la tradición artística, sino por lo que significan para la estética, y aún para la filosofía y la ciencia, pues de lo que se trata es de un ir y venir del pensamiento entre la materialidad y el ejercicio de pensar el oficio.

  8. Avaliação de necessidades de TD&E: proposição de um novo modelo.

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Análises de necessidades de treinamento (ANTs, apesar de importantes, têm sido realizadas de modo pouco sistemático em ambientes organizacionais. A análise da literatura mostra que a produção intelectual nessa área está restrita a análises nos níveis do indivíduo e das tarefas, com poucas pesquisas enfocando necessidades em níveis mais abrangentes como grupos, equipes ou macroprocessos organizacionais. De modo geral, as abordagens de análise de necessidades ainda estão focadas em cargos ou nas estruturas organizacionais rígidas, estáticas, burocráticas (departamentos, divisões etc.. Essa característica torna a ANT anacrônica e pouco útil, pois não capta novos arranjos organizacionais como arquiteturas matriciais, organização em rede, organizações virtuais ou novas configurações dos trabalhos humanos. Esse caráter dinâmico implica uma mudança no caráter da ANT, para uma abordagem mais prospectiva, voltada à aprendizagem de habilidades complexas e de alta volatilidade. Este ensaio teórico objetiva rever a literatura da área e propor um modelo de diagnóstico de necessidades de treinamento baseado em taxonomia de resultados de aprendizagem e com foco em diversos níveis de análise. O modelo de ANT proposto deriva de um conjunto de resultados de pesquisas empíricas e vai além da análise de tarefas e de pessoas, incluindo também o nível organizacional e de grupo. A aplicação deste modelo permite fornecer as informações necessárias ao desenho de situações de aprendizagem e de treinamento que possam promover o desenvolvimento de complexas competências valorizadas pelo mundo do trabalho, cujo desenvolvimento requer ações educacionais variadas, currículos e programas de aprendizagem contínua e de educação permanente (ao longo de toda a vida. Nesse sentido, o modelo proposto permite que seja feito um elo entre os estudos empíricos sobre o tema e a sua aplicação prática em organizações de

    2004-04-01

    Full Text Available Neste estudo, fundamentado no materialismo histórico e dialético, busco refletir sobre estratégias de re-organização do trabalho da enfermagem, no sentido de minimizar o processo de desgaste físico e psíquico dos trabalhadores. A apreensão dos dados empíricos foi realizada junto aos trabalhadores de enfermagem de duas instituições de saúde, na região sul do país., sendo utilizada entrevista, observação e análise documental. A partir dos indicativos, apresento um modelo de organização, pautado na democracia das relações, visando a expressão dos trabalhadores enquanto sujeitos multidimensionais, como atores sociais e não meros executores de tarefas delegadas, como hoje estabelece a divisão social e técnica do trabalho. Um modelo que tem por objetivo estabelecer relações interpessoais mais harmônicas e horizontais, buscando compartilhar saberes e fazeres.

  12. Governança empresarial, riscos e controles internos: a emergência de um novo modelo de controladoria

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nilton Cano Martin

    2004-04-01

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

  14. Transferência de Significados entre Consumidores, Personagens e Marca: Proposição de um Novo Modelo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mauro Calixta Tavares

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available A marca tem sido reconhecida como patrimônio intangível resultante, em grande parte, dos significados das suas associações. A recorrência da marca às associações com personagens é conhecida, mas não os significados que esses transferem para ela. Buscando a compreensão dos significados contidos nessa transferência, McCracken (2005 desenvolveu um modelo composto por três estágios: a cultura, onde estão inseridas as celebridades; o endosso que materializa a relação celebridade/ produto; e o consumo, estabelecido pela relação produto/consumidor. Este estudo tem por objetivo desenvolver e propor um modelo do processo de transferência de significados, com influências recíprocas, baseado no modelo proposto por McCracken (2005. Para tanto, a pesquisa realizada, como teste piloto, é do tipo exploratória, com abordagem qualitativa, no qual quinze profissionais de criação de agências de propaganda participaram do estudo envolvendo a análise de quatro personagens. Os resultados revelam que o modelo proposto é possível de validação. DOI: 10.5585/remark.v13i1.2351

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo tem como objetivo analisar a centralidade das políticas sociais na estratégia de desenvolvimento britânica no governo do Novo Trabalhismo. Pretende-se mostrar que a concepção de solidariedade e coesão social que marcaram a formação do Welfare State britânico no Pós-II Guerra Mundial foi substituída por uma visão em que as políticas sociais estariam voltadas para o aumento da competitividade e expansão dos mercados, fato este que redefiniu o sistema de proteção social britânico nos moldes do Welfare to Work. Neste sentido, buscar-se-á mostrar a ausência de conexão entre o discurso centrado na exclusividade do mercado de trabalho como lócus do bem-estar social e as evidências empíricas concretamente verificadas.

    Jésus de Lisboa Gomes

    Full Text Available A água doce, um bem vital para vida dos seres vivos e um dos principais recursos para o desenvolvimento das nações, encontra-se escasso ou em estado de grande degradação em muitas regiões do mundo, inclusive no Brasil. O principal desafio é a gestão sustentável do suprimento e da demanda de água para que as atuais gerações supram as suas necessidades sem comprometer a possibilidade de que as futuras gerações também o façam. A gestão do suprimento implica implementar políticas de identificação e desenvolvimento de novas fontes de água e da demanda e a introdução de instrumentos que promovam a sua conservação e uso eficiente. No Brasil, a regulamentação desse assunto iniciou-se na década de 1930, fundamentando-se num modelo centralizado e sob forte influência do setor elétrico. Com a Constituição Federal de 1988, começou a ser criado um novo sistema de gestão, integrado, democrático e descentralizado, tendo a bacia hidrográfica como unidade de referência e gerenciamento. Este sistema combina a aplicação de diferentes mecanismos de regulação, contemplando instrumentos de comando e controle, econômicos e de educação ambiental. O planejamento é compartilhado entre o poder público, organizações da sociedade civil e usuários, integrando decisões sobre desenvolvimento, uso de água, saneamento e meio ambiente, envolvendo uma diversidade de agentes com objetivos contraditórios, fazendo com que os interesses de uns funcionem como reguladores dos interesses de outros. Neste trabalho analisa-se a implementação desse sistema no Brasil e no Estado de São Paulo, com vistas a discutir as suas características fundamentais, delinear as diferenças entre os dois modelos, destacar os principais problemas existentes e como esses problemas estão sendo tratados.

    Full Text Available As ciências da atividade motora têm passado por avanços bastante rápidos em seu corpo de conhecimento nos últimos anos. Pelo menos em parte, tais avanços podem ser explicados pelo desenvolvimento igualmente rápido das técnicas de biologia molecular, e principalmente de seu emprego nos estudos envolvendo o esporte e o exercício físico. Nesse contexto, estamos vendo emergir um novo campo de estudo dentro das ciências do esporte e do exercício: a genética aplicada à atividade motora. Diferente dos estudos sobre genômica da atividade motora, que se preocupam em investigar os efeitos dos diferentes modelos de exercício agudo e crônico sobre a regulação da expressão gênica e proteica nas mais diversas condições, a genética da atividade motora tem como premissa a identificação de variações genéticas comuns, sejam elas de ordem estrutural (isto é, diferenças nas sequências de pares de bases ou funcional (que se referem a diferenças interindividuais no funcionamento dos genes explicadas por mecanismos que não contemplem alterações nas sequências de pares de bases, capazes de explicar porque pessoas de características similares apresentam tantas diferenças nos componentes da aptidão física relacionadas à saúde, nas capacidades físicas relacionadas ao desempenho esportivo, e nas adaptações fisiológicas que apresentam quando submetidas ao exercício agudo ou ao treinamento físico crônico. Em outras palavras, a genética da atividade motora preocupa-se em identificar características genéticas que expliquem a imensa variação interindividual no desempenho físico e esportivo que há muito já se conhece.

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Para estudos de seleção de linhagens de inimigos naturais provenientes do campo, de comportamento ou mesmo de taxonomia, a captura de insetos vivos é de grande importância. Uma das alternativas para obtenção de parasitoides (Hymenoptera adultos é a utilização de armadilhas de emergência. Sendo assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi propor dois modelos de armadilhas de emergência (armadilhas do tipo "caixa" e "garrafa", para obtenção de parasitoides vivos de ovos endofíticos. Os dois modelos de armadilhas propostas foram eficientes na captura de parasitoides vivos. Entretanto, foi observada uma maior captura de espécimes na armadilha do tipo "caixa" em relação à do tipo "garrafa", decorrente de uma maior armazenagem de folíolos no interior desta. A utilização de cada um dos modelos dependerá do tipo de pesquisa a ser realizada, do custo/benefício da sua confecção e da quantidade de parasitoides necessários para realização do estudo.For strain selection studies of natural enemies from the field, studies of behavior or even of taxonomy, capture of alive insects are of great importance. One alternative for obtaining adult parasitoids (Hymenoptera is the use of emergency traps. Therefore, the objective of this work was to propose two models of emergency traps (traps like "box" and "bottle", for obtaining alive endophytic egg parasitoids. The two models proposed were efficient in the capture of alive parasitoids, however a larger capture of specimens was observed in the "box" trap in relation to the e "bottle", due to larger folioles storage inside the same. The use of each one of the models will depend on the research which is being accomplished, the cost/benefit to built it, the amount parasitoids necessary to accomplish the study.

    Cássio Adriano Braz de Aquino

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo visa à análise da transformação da temporalidade, como elemento chave para a compreensão das mudanças no mundo do trabalho. Tomamos como referente dessa análise as teorias dos tempos sociais e a idéia do tempo dominante na constituição dos quadros temporais das sociedades. A passagem de um modelo de temporalidade relativamente estável e quase hegemônica do modelo industrial, para um tempo cada vez mais diversificado e diluído, advindo das novas jornadas - com durações e ritmos cada vez mais complexos - não parece ser suficiente, ainda, para atribuir a perda desse domínio do trabalho na estruturação dos quadros temporais.The present article aims to analyze transformations of temporality in the context of labor as a key element for understanding the changes in its realm. As reference for this analysis we use the theories of social time and the idea of dominant time in the constitution of the temporal frames of societies. The change from a model of relatively stable and almost hegemonic temporality of the industrial model for a more diversified and diluted time, resulting from new types of daytime jobs - controlled by more complex durations and rhythms - it still does not seem to be enough to attribute the loss of this domain of labor in constituting temporal frames.

  4. Novo modelo de parâmetros concentrados aplicado à hidratação de grãos New model of lumped parameters applied to grain hydration

    Mônica Ronobo Coutinho

    2007-09-01

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta um novo modelo fenomenológico de parâmetros concentrados para a hidratação de grãos de soja, obtido a partir de um balanço de massa em regime transiente nos grãos, admitindo duas hipóteses básicas: 1º variação do volume do grão diretamente proporcional à variação da sua massa ao longo da hidratação; e 2º variação exponencial do coeficiente de transferência de massa aparente em função da concentração de água na soja. Este modelo possui apenas dois parâmetros, os quais foram estimados a partir do ajuste deste às medidas da umidade do grão ao longo do tempo, avaliadas em várias temperaturas. Os resultados revelam que o modelo proposto é adequado, enquanto o coeficiente de transferência de massa aparente depende da temperatura e apresenta variações significativas ao longo da hidratação.A new first principle model with lumped parameters was developed for the hydration of soya beans. A transient mass balance was applied to the soya beans taking into consideration two basic hypotheses:1º variation of the volume directly proportional to the variation of the mass of the grain during the process, 2º Exponential variation of the apparent coefficient of mass transfer in function of water concentration in the soy. This model has got just two parameters, which were evaluated from adjustment of model to the measures of grain moisture along the time, at several temperatures. The results indicate that the proposed model was able to represent the hydration process, while the mass transfer coefficient depends on the temperature and it presents significant variations along the hydration.

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: The present a novel adenocarcinoma model in athymic mice. METHODS: Seven athymic mice were used. Colon diversion and distal fistula were made. Adenocarcinoma cells were inoculated in the submucosa of fistula. Tumor growth was monitored daily. Scintigraphy with 99mTc-MIBI was performed to identify the tumor. RESULTS: The model of distal colon cancer is feasible. Tumor detection was possible by both, macroscopically and molecular imaging. All resections demonstrated poorly differentiated tumors. Colon obstruction occurred in one case, similarly to evolution in human tumors of distal colon. CONCLUSION: The proposed model of distal colon cancer is feasible, allows for easy monitoring of tumoral growth by both, macroscopically and molecular imaging, and is suitable for studying the evolution of tumor with implementation of cytotoxic therapy in vivo.OBJETIVO: Apresentar novo modelo de adenocarcinoma distal em camundongos atímicos. MÉTODOS: Foram utilizados sete camundongos atímicos. Desvio do cólon distal e fístula foram feitas. Células de adenocarcinoma foram inoculadas na submucosa da fístula. O crescimento do tumor foi monitorado diariamente. Cintilografia com 99mTc-MIBI foi realizada para identificar o tumor. RESULTADOS: O modelo de câncer de cólon distal é viável. Detecção do tumor foi possível macroscopicamente e por imagem molecular. Todas as ressecções demonstraram tumores pouco diferenciados. Obstrução do cólon ocorreu em um caso, de forma semelhante à evolução em tumores humanos do cólon distal. CONCLUSÃO: O modelo de câncer do cólon distal proposto é viável, permite a monitorização fácil do crescimento tumoral macroscopicamente e por imagem molecular, sendo adequado para o estudo da evolução de tumor com aplicação de terapia citotóxica in vivo.

    Full Text Available No início do novo milénio, em pleno contexto global neoliberal, Luanda e Maputo assistem à consolidação de diferentes paradigmas de intervenção urbana, associados a determinados modelos habitacionais de iniciativa pública, evidenciando-se os condomínios em altura e a habitação de piso único de crescimento extensivo. Atendendo às especificidades contextuais dessas duas capitais lusófonas e a suas grandes desigualdades socioterritoriais, recorremos ao conceito de «direito à cidade» para, por meio da análise de quatro casos de estudo, refletir sobre a adequação das soluções adotadas no âmbito desses dois modelos habitacionais, para a redução dessas desigualdades, no que se refere: às condições de habitabilidade, ao acesso aos benefícios da urbanização e à participação e apropriação de uma vida urbana transformada. Nesse contexto, onclui-se que existe um desequilíbrio entre o investimento estatal e as reais necessidades da maioria da população, tendencialmente de baixos recursos, que limita o «direito à cidade», no que se refere ao acesso às condições de habitabilidade e aos benefícios da urbanização. Esta limitação verifica-se quer nos condomínios em altura, direcionados para uma população de média e alta renda, quer na habitação de piso único de crescimento extensivo, mais adaptada à classe de menores recursos e onde a apropriação é possibilitada em ambos os contextos. Nenhum dos casos engloba todos os direitos contemplados pelo «direito à cidade», mas Maputo apresenta um panorama mais favorável, em parte devido a uma maior abertura à descentralização e participação popular na tomada de decisões e partilha de responsabilidades.

    The Brazilian model of exploration guarantees to some cities participation in the result of the exploration of the hydro-carbons. Since the distribution of these resources meet the technical criteria, established by law, what we have is that some of these cities receives relevant values. Despite such benefits, the general feeling of the population is that these cities have not been changes, although they have larger budgets. This slice of resources to cities arising from oil exploration, through royalties, through the simplistic view of the population does not guarantee them a better condition of life. Many cities receive large sums and or have considerable budget dependence on these resources. Point paramount in the study is that the management of municipal resources is very precarious. The waste is excessive, the practices of good management are unknown or simply ignored; and dealing with public resources as if they were private is a bad spread dramatically. The exposure of a different path is always well seen and spreads hope. These cities should be examples of quality of life for its population, since it does not know the value received monthly, and much less as these amounts are applied. Through comparative studies and analysis of good means employees in the use of these resources, it is observed that there are solutions to this problem. (author)

Pesquisa documental, bibliográfica, quantitativa, extraída por fontes de dados secundários, utilizando-se os COAPs de 19 Regiões de Saúde do Estado, produzidos e apresentados no final do ano de 2011 e disponibilizados no site da Secretaria Estadual de Saúde (SESA. O acesso ocorreu durante todo o mês de outubro de 2014. Nesses documentos foram coletados a quantidade de profissionais de saúde, a qualificação desses trabalhadores e os vínculos empregatícios que tinham ao ocupar cargos na gestão dos municípios que compunham as regiões em estudo. Os dados foram apresentados em tabelas, com estatísticas percentuais simples, tabuladas no SPSS versão 20.0. Os achados confirmaram que existe um maior número de profissionais médicos, enfermeiros, auxiliares e odontólogos distribuídos desigualmente entre as regiões de saúde. Também foi possível visualizar que a maior parte dos trabalhadores era contratada (57%, seguido dos terceirizados (30%. Em relação à qualificação dos empregados, foi demonstrado que houve predominância de cursos de atualização nas regiões de saúde de Acaraú e Sobral. O estudo reflete sobre as condições laborais precárias dos servidores de saúde, com vulnerabilidade de vínculos, distribuição e qualificação irregular por região, que interfere no fortalecimento da regionalização.

    Full Text Available The considerations presented in this article have the objective to provoke reflections about the search for alternative models of assistance in the Braziian health public system, which has been demanding increasing changes in the last years in the country, considering the crisis installed in the health sector. The Brazilian health assistance model centered in the hospitals and phisicians health care has failed to efficiently solve the increasing health demands of the population. In an area of incited ideological conflicts, a consensus is achieved: It is necessary to change the present model of health assistance. The proposal of a new model based on priorizing basic health attention has guided the changes and the strategies defined by the Health Federal Ministry, that presented the Family Health Program (PSF as a possibility of change. The implementation of a new model of health assistance has been a great challenge for the whole country. The PSF was presented in 1994 as a structural proposal capable of incorporating new social segments to the health assistance field, in the construction of this political sanitary project. The different researches contributions about this subject leads to the understanding that it can be perceived as a field of interests in which the consideration of the daily life of the Brazilian population is what will define the technical and instrumental drawing of the desired model of health assistance in the country.

    Full Text Available O implante de marcapasso epicárdíco em fetos via toracotomia é um procedimento potencialmente mais seguro e eficaz para se tratar o bloqueio AV total congênito (BAVT, quando associado à hidropsia fetal e refratário ao tratamento clínico. Este estudo foi desenvolvido com o objetivo de avaliar as características eletrofisiológicas de dois eletrodos epicárdicos através de novo modelo experimental de BAVT congênito induzido pela crioablação do nó AV. Foram aplicados, em 2 grupos de 6 fetos de ovelhas (80% da gestação, um eletrodo de rosqueamento (1,5 voltas e outro de sutura epicárdica. O BAVT foi obtido em todos os fetos, não sendo observado nenhum ritmo de escape ventricular. Os limiares de estimulação foram baixos para ambos os eletrodos, com valores inferiores para o eletrodo de rosqueamento com largura de pulso abaixo de 0,9 mseg (p 0,20 na amplitude da onda R dos 2 eletrodos. O slew rate foi significativamente maior para o grupo de fetos com eletrodo de rosqueamento (1,40 ± 0,2 versus 0,62 ± 0,2 V/seg. p=0,04. O método é simples e reprodutível para avaliação do marcapasso fetal, sendo que o eletrodo de rosqueamento representa a melhor opção, quando houver indicação de implante de marcapasso em fetos.Epicardial fetal pacing via thoracotomy has the potential for being a safer and more reliable procedure to treat congenital complete heart block (CHB associated with fetal hydrops refractory to medical therapy. To assess the acute electrophysiologic characteristics of two ventricular epicardial leads, a new experimental model of fetal heart block induced by cryosurgical ablation of the AV node without the need for fetal cardiac bypass was performed in 12 pregnant ewes at 110-115 days of gestation. A modified screw-in lead (one and a half turn was used in 6 fetal lambs and a stitch-on lead in the other 6 lambs. CHB was achieved in 100% of the fetal lambs, with no ventricular escape rate noticed in any of the lambs

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cláudia Natália Ferreira

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available O conceito da cascata da coagulação descreve as interações bioquímicas dos fatores da coagulação, entretanto, tem falhado como um modelo do processo hemostático in vivo. A hemostasia requer a formação de um tampão de plaquetas e fibrina no local da lesão vascular, bem como a permanência de substâncias procoagulantes ativadas nesse processo no sítio da lesão. O controle da coagulação sanguínea é realizado por meio de reações procoagulantes em superfícies celulares específicas e localizadas, evitando a propagação da coagulação no sistema vascular. Uma análise crítica do papel das células no processo hemostático permite a construção de um modelo da coagulação que melhor explica hemorragias e tromboses in vivo. O modelo da coagulação baseado em superfícies celulares substitui a tradicional hipótese da "cascata" e propõe a ativação do processo de coagulação sobre diferentes superfícies celulares em quatro fases que se sobrepõem: iniciação, amplificação, propagação e finalização. O modelo baseado em superfícies celulares permite um maior entendimento de como a hemostasia funciona in vivo e esclarece o mecanismo fisiopatológico de certos distúrbios da coagulação.The concept of a coagulation cascade describes the biochemical interactions of the coagulation factors, but it is flawed as a model of the in vivo hemostatic process. Hemostasis requires both platelet and fibrin plug formation at the site of vessel injury and that the procoagulant substances activated in this process remain at the site of injury. This control of blood coagulation is accomplished as the procoagulant reactions only exist on specific cell surfaces to keep coagulation from spreading throughout the vascular system. A model of coagulation that better explains bleeding and thrombosis in vivo created after considering the critical role of cells. The cellbased model of hemostasis replaces the traditional "cascade" hypothesis

    Carla Cabral Gomes Carneiro

    Full Text Available Este artigo discute a parceria do Estado com organizações sociais para a gestão do trabalho em saúde no setor público, com ênfase no trabalho do agente comunitário de saúde. Trata-se de um estudo de caso realizado no município do Rio de Janeiro numa conjuntura de expansão da cobertura da Estratégia Saúde da Família. O tema é analisado num contexto mais amplo de reforma do Estado brasileiro, partindo-se do entendimento de que o movimento reformista da administração pública, conhecido como gerencialismo, guarda estreita relação nas suas ações e valores com a reestruturação produtiva iniciada nos anos 1970. Os resultados mostram que o modelo de gestão do trabalho implantado opera sob a lógica da produtividade, influenciando o modelo de atenção à saúde prestado à população e a organização do trabalho do agente comunitário de saúde. A análise também destaca a temporalidade e a externalidade dos vínculos de trabalho como fatores que podem comprometer os avanços da democratização, equidade e cidadania no campo da saúde e do trabalho conquistados na Constituição brasileira de 1988.

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: To develop an animal model of diaphragmatic electrical stimulation able to generate an appropriate ventilatory support through the direct implantation of electrodes in the diaphragm (electroventilation. METHODS: Six New Zealand female rabbits (2-3 kg were placed on mechanical ventilation. Then, a laparotomy was performed in order to identify the motor points in each hemidiaphragm, followed by the implantation of the electrodes for diaphragmatic stimulation. We tested two types of electrodes according to the conduction of electrical stimulation: unipolar and bipolar. The electrodes were placed on different occasions in the same animals and tested with current intensities of 20, 26 and 32 mA. Each current intensity was repeated three times for 10 respiratory cycles with 1 minute interval between each cycle, and 5 minutes for new current intensity. We recorded the relationship between current intensity and inspiratory volume. RESULTS: The electrodes adequately stimulate the diaphragm and obtain inspired volumes using different intensity currents. The bipolar electrode generated inspiratory volumes as high as 4.5 times of baseline while the unipolar electrode reached up to 3.5 times of baseline. CONCLUSION: This model has proved to be effective for studying the performance of the diaphragm under different electrical stimulations using different set of electrodes.OBJETIVO: Desenvolver um modelo animal de estimulação elétrica diafragmática capaz de gerar um suporte ventilatório adequado através da implantação direta de eletrodos no diafragma (eletroventilação.

    Full Text Available The production of terminology dictionaries including Galician as a working language has undergone significant development since 1980. Recent Galician terminographic work, generated within the linguistic normalization process, has been analyzed in publications in which this fact is related to language planning (e.g. Rodríguez Río 1996; Galanes 2003. Meanwhile, theoretical changes have occurred in terminology science, especially since Cabré 1999a, incorporating a social and communicative perspective into the treatment of terminological units. These innovations are being reflected in current applied work on terminology, especially with regard to how the relationship between terms and concepts is formulated (synonymy, polysemy, etc., variation in terms and concepts, and the choice of sources of terminology, which are now corpus-based. The time has come for a re-evaluation of Galician terminography work in the light of these new developments, taking into account the new communicative perspective and aiming at interlingual mediation, with special attention to the quality of dictionaries. For this purpose, we have designed an evaluation system based on international indicators (Pointer 1995, communicatively oriented methods and the latest international standards (ISO on terminographic work. The results findings of this study will affect the design of such work in the future.

Participaron 52 personas quienes aceptaron responder un cuestionario. Se encontró que un 28.9% presentaba problemas de adiposidad; el 60% realizaba ejercicios físicos variados y el 36% no participaba de un programa de ejercicios regulares. Se halló que el 53.8% tenía disposición de hacer ejercicio en los próximos 6 meses, aunque el 46.1% no pretendía o no sabía si lo realizaría. Se logró clasificar el 40.4% de los sujetos, dentro de las etapas del modelo trans-teórico de cambio de comportamiento. Además este estudio permitió determinar que existe una proporción importante de personas que presenta adiposidad o sobrepeso y que existe también una falta de motivación para mejorar el estilo de vida, en los sujetos que no pretenden o no saben si van a hacer ejercicio en los próximos meses. Por último, el 10% de los participantes nunca ha practicado ejercicio físico de forma regular, lo que implica posibles riesgos en su salud. El modelo transteórico podría utilizarse no solo para tamizar a la población, sino también para proponer objetivos y metas que ayuden en la adherencia al ejercicio físico.

    Full Text Available Um novo modelo de coração artificial está sendo desenvolvido e testado em nossos laboratórios, o Coração Artificial Auxiliar (CAA. Este dispositivo foi projetado com dimensões reduzidas para ser implantado em paralelo ao coração natural do paciente, dentro da cavidade torácica direita de forma heterotópica. Foram realizados testes in vitro, em um circuito simulador do sistema circulatório humano, para verificação do desempenho hidrodinâmico do CAA. Os resultados mostraram que o CAA pode fornecer um fluxo de até 5,8 L/min, com uma pré-carga de 20 mmHg e uma pós-carga de 100 mmHg. A freqüência de batimento do CAA e, consequentemente, o débito cardíaco são dependentes da pré-carga do ventrículo esquerdo, funcionamento semelhante ao coração natural (Lei de Frank Starling. Testes in vivo animal estão sendo realizados para avaliar os resultados obtidos com os testes in vitro e para verificar o comportamento do CAA em ambiente e condições fisiológicas difíceis de serem simuladas. Os testes in vivo estão sendo também importantes para o desenvolvimento de técnicas cirúrgicas e treinamento dos cirurgiões cardiovasculares envolvidos no projeto. Até o momento, dois estudos agudos in vivo foram realizados, com o CAA funcionando por 5h, implantado na cavidade torácica direta de carneiros adultos (50 ± 5 kg. Os resultados destes estudos in vivo demonstraram que o funcionamento do CAA é sincronizado ao coração natural, sendo possível estudar o comportamento do CAA quando, gradativamente, o coração natural teve sua contratilidade reduzida até sua parada total.A miniaturized artificial heart is being developed in the authors laboratories, the Auxiliary Total Artificial Heart (ATAH.

    The idealised land|water dichotomy is most obviously challenged by ice when ‘land practice’ takes place on ice or when ‘maritime practice’ is obstructed by ice. Both instances represent disparity between the legal codification of space and its social practice. Logically, then, both instances call...... for alternative legal thought and practice; in the following I will emphasise the former and reflect upon the relationship between ice, law and politics. Prior to this workshop I had worked more on the relationship between cartography, geography and boundaries than specifically on ice. Listening to all...... the interesting conversations during the workshop, however, made me think that much of the concern with the Polar Regions in general, and the presence of ice in particular, reverberates around the question of how to accommodate various geographical presences and practices within the regulatory framework that we...

Los métodos de máxima verosimilitud (MMV ofrecen un marco alternativo a la estadística frecuentista convencional, alejándose del uso del p-valor para el rechazo de una única hipótesis nula y optando por el uso de las verosimilitudes para evaluar el grado de apoyo en los datos a un conjunto de hipótesis alternativas (o modelos de interés para el investigador. Estos métodos han sido ampliamente aplicados en ecología en el marco de los modelos de vecindad. Dichos modelos usan una aproximación especialmente explícita para describir procesos demográficos de plantas o procesos eco sistémicos en función de los atributos de los individuos vecinos. Se trata por tanto de modelos fenomenológicos cuya principal utilidad radica en funcionar como herramientas de síntesis de los múltiples mecanismos por los que las especies pueden interactuar e influenciar su entorno, proporcionando una medida del efecto per cápita de individuos de distintas características (ej. tamaño, especie, rasgos fisiológicos sobre los procesos de interés. La gran ventaja de aplicar los MMV en el marco de los modelos de vecindad es que permite ajustar y comparar múltiples modelos que usen distintos atributos de los vecinos y/o formas funcionales para seleccionar aquel con mayor soporte empírico. De esta manera, cada modelo funcionará como un “experimento virtual” para responder preguntas relacionadas con la magnitud y extensión espacial de los efectos de distintas especies coexistentes, y extraer conclusiones sobre posibles implicaciones para el funcionamiento de comunidades y ecosistemas. Este trabajo sintetiza las técnicas de implementación de los MMV y los modelos de vecindad en ecología terrestre, resumiendo su uso hasta la fecha y destacando nuevas líneas de aplicación.

    Full Text Available Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of de novo glutamine (Gln synthesis in the proliferation of C6 glioma cells and its detection with 13N-ammonia. Methods: Chronic Gln-deprived C6 glioma (0.06C6 cells were established. The proliferation rates of C6 and 0.06C6 cells were measured under the conditions of Gln deprivation along with or without the addition of ammonia or glutamine synthetase (GS inhibitor. 13N-ammonia uptake was assessed in C6 cells by gamma counting and in rats with C6 and 0.06C6 xenografts by micro–positron emission tomography (PET scanning. The expression of GS in C6 cells and xenografts was assessed by Western blotting and immunohistochemistry, respectively. Results: The Gln-deprived C6 cells showed decreased proliferation ability but had a significant increase in GS expression. Furthermore, we found that low concentration of ammonia was sufficient to maintain the proliferation of Gln-deprived C6 cells, and 13N-ammonia uptake in C6 cells showed Gln-dependent decrease, whereas inhibition of GS markedly reduced the proliferation of C6 cells as well as the uptake of 13N-ammoina. Additionally, microPET/computed tomography exhibited that subcutaneous 0.06C6 xenografts had higher 13N-ammonia uptake and GS expression in contrast to C6 xenografts. Conclusion: De novo Gln synthesis through ammonia–glutamate reaction plays an important role in the proliferation of C6 cells. 13N-ammonia can be a potential metabolic PET tracer for Gln-dependent tumors.

The authors point out the advantages and disadvantages of legal texts and analyse the possibilities of their efficient application in the teaching process. At the initial stage of teaching English legalese, materials prepared specially for teaching purposes in textbooks seem to be more appropriate as they are adapted for a particular level for law students whereas in more advanced levels, authentic texts in a legal English classroom can more considerably contribute to the learning experience. The usage of both legal authentic materials and adapted legal texts have tangible impact on mastering legal English.

    This paper discusses how legal moralism should be defined. It is argued that legal moralism should be defined as the position that “For any X, it is always a pro tanto reason for justifiably imposing legal regulation on X that X is morally wrong (where “morally wrong” is not conceptually equivalent...... to “harmful”)”. Furthermore, a distinction between six types of legal moralism is made. The six types are grouped according to whether they are concerned with the enforcement of positive or critical morality, and whether they are concerned with criminalising, legally restricting, or refraining from legally...... protecting morally wrong behaviour. This is interesting because not all types of legal moralism are equally vulnerable to the different critiques of legal moralism that have been put forth. Indeed, I show that some interesting types of legal moralism have not been criticised at all....

    Sintomas psiquiátricos são subjetivos por natureza e tendem a se sobrepor entre diferentes desordens. Sendo assim, a criação de modelos de uma desordem neuropsiquiátrica encontra desafios pela falta de conhecimento dos fundamentos da fisiopatologia e diagnósticos precisos. Modelos animais são usados para testar hipóteses de etiologia e para representar a condição humana tão próximo quanto possível para aumentar nosso entendimento da doença e avaliar novos alvos para a descoberta de drogas.

    Full Text Available O transplante intestinal tem sido utilizado como uma alternativa promissora no tratamento da síndrome do intestino curto em pacientes adultos e pediátricos. Vários modelos experimentais foram desenvolvidos com a finalidade de testar diferentes soluções de preservação. No entanto são modelos complexos que levam, muitas vezes, um tempo prolongado para a sua realização. OBJETIVO: Neste estudo, desenvolvemos um modelo alternativo de autotransplante intestinal in situ analisando os efeitos hemodinâmicos e metabólicos iniciais da perfusão hipotérmica com solução de Ringer lactato. MÉTODOS: Foram utilizados seis cães machos sem raça definida (22,8±1,4 Kg; as variáveis hemodinâmicas sistêmicas foram obtidas por meio de cateter arterial e pelo Swan-Ganz. A perfusão do trato gastrintestinal foi avaliada pela medida do fluxo sangüíneo da veia mesentérica superior (FSVMS, fluxômetro ultra-sônico, e através da medida do pCO2 intestinal (pCO2-int e pCO2-gap, tonometria a gás. Inicialmente realizamos a secção do jejuno proximal e íleo distal e isolamento dos vasos mesentéricos com fitas cardíacas, todo o tecido nervoso e linfático em torno do eixo vascular intestinal foi seccionado. O território mesentérico foi perfundido através da artéria mesentérica superior por 30 minutos com 1000 ml de Ringer lactato a 4ºC, e o efluente drenado através de uma pequena incisão na veia mesentérica superior. Os animais foram observados por 120 min após o inicio do período de reperfusão. Amostras de sangue foram obtidas da aorta abdominal, para análise gasométrica. RESULTADOS: A perfusão intestinal hipotérmica induziu uma redução do FSMVS apenas nos primeiros 30 min de reperfusão (587±70,9 para 398±102,8 ml/min e um aumento do pCO2-gap (2±2,7 para 29,8±6 mmHg. Não foram observadas alterações significativas em relação a parâmetros hemodinâmicos e metabólicos sistêmicos (PAM, DC, pH, excesso de bases

Se utiliza el modelo depredador-presa propuesto en 1926 por los científicos naturales Lotka y Volterra, y aplicado por primera vez al ámbito económico por Goodwin en 1967. A diferencia de los modelos convencionales del ciclo económico, cuyo punto de partida suelen ser las perturbaciones exógenas sobre la economía real, nuestra atención se centrará en descubrir los focos de inestabilidad financiera. Analizaremos también los mecanismos de propagación hacia el sector real, y las circunstancias que acotan el ciclo dentro de los límites que se observan en la realidad económica. Las restricciones crediticias impuestas por los bancos parecen ser un elemento decisivo.

    The legal competency or capability to exercise rights is level of judgment and decision-making ability needed to manage one's own affairs and to sign official documents. With some exceptions, the person entitles this right in age of majority. It is acquired without legal procedures, however the annulment of legal capacity requires a juristic process. This resolution may not be final and could be revoked thorough the procedure of reverting legal capacity - fully or partially. Given the increasing number of persons with dementia, they are often subjects of legal expertise concerning their legal capacity. On the other part, emphasis on the civil rights of mentally ill also demands their maximal protection. Therefore such distinctive issue is approached with particular attention. The approach in determination of legal competency is more focused on gradation of it's particular aspects instead of existing dual concept: legally capable - legally incapable. The main assumption represents how person with dementia is legally capable and should enjoy all the rights, privileges and obligations as other citizens do. The aspects of legal competency for which person with dementia is going to be deprived, due to protection of one's rights and interests, are determined in legal procedure and then passed over to the guardian decided by court. Partial annulment of legal competency is measure applied when there is even one existing aspect of preserved legal capability (pension disposition, salary or pension disposition, ability of concluding contract, making testament, concluding marriage, divorce, choosing whereabouts, independent living, right to vote, right to decide course of treatment ect.). This measure is most often in favour of the patient and rarely for protection of other persons and their interests. Physicians are expected to precisely describe early dementia symptoms which may influence assessment of specific aspects involved in legal capacity (memory loss, impaired task

    Andréia Mesacasa

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo pretende analisar as relações existentes entre a modernidade, a moda que rege as formas do vestir, o consumo evidenciado pela sociedade capitalista e suas implicações na prática do ecodesign que integra um novo paradigma no contexto vivenciado pelos indivíduos e a natureza. A modernidade possui como principais características a separação entre tempo-espaço, o desenvolvimento dos mecanismos de desencaixe e a apropriação reflexiva do conhecimento que desloca a vida social da fixidez da tradição. Nesta perspectiva, a modernidade associa-se à racionalização, que impõe a destruição dos costumes e crenças tradicionais, sendo marcada por um apetite pelo novo. O apetite pelo novo é condição de existência da moda, traduzida pelo incessante processo de mudança de formas e estilos. Atuando em uma sociedade capitalista, moda está relacionada com o consumo e a obsolescência programada, que promovem a cultura do excesso contribuindo com a produção de resíduos e elevando os danos ambientais. Na atualidade, a relação entre o mundo dos objetos e o ambiente natural é intermediada pelo ecodesign, entendido como modelo projetual orientado por critérios ecológicos, que sintetiza um vasto conjunto de atividades projetuais, com a finalidade de enfrentar os temas postos pela questão ambiental partindo do redesenho dos produtos industriais.

    De novo peptide sequencing from tandem MS data is the key technology in proteomics for the characterization of proteins, especially for new sequences, such as mAbs. In this study, we propose a deep neural network model, DeepNovo, for de novo peptide sequencing. DeepNovo architecture combines recent advances in convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks to learn features of tandem mass spectra, fragment ions, and sequence patterns of peptides. The networks are further integrated with local dynamic programming to solve the complex optimization task of de novo sequencing. We evaluated the method on a wide variety of species and found that DeepNovo considerably outperformed state of the art methods, achieving 7.7-22.9% higher accuracy at the amino acid level and 38.1-64.0% higher accuracy at the peptide level. We further used DeepNovo to automatically reconstruct the complete sequences of antibody light and heavy chains of mouse, achieving 97.5-100% coverage and 97.2-99.5% accuracy, without assisting databases. Moreover, DeepNovo is retrainable to adapt to any sources of data and provides a complete end-to-end training and prediction solution to the de novo sequencing problem. Not only does our study extend the deep learning revolution to a new field, but it also shows an innovative approach in solving optimization problems by using deep learning and dynamic programming.

    Tandem mass spectrometry-based de novo peptide sequencing is a complex and time-consuming process. The current algorithms for de novo peptide sequencing cannot rapidly and thoroughly process large mass spectrometry datasets. In this paper, we propose MRUniNovo, a novel tool for parallel de novo peptide sequencing. MRUniNovo parallelizes UniNovo based on the Hadoop compute platform. Our experimental results demonstrate that MRUniNovo significantly reduces the computation time of de novo peptide sequencing without sacrificing the correctness and accuracy of the results, and thus can process very large datasets that UniNovo cannot.

An objective account, in which current law and arguments for and against change are exposed, is essential to inform the euthanasia debate. In this article the legal issues concerning euthanasia are examined and arguments raised by proposed changes in the law are considered.

  16. FINANCIAL AND LEGAL RELATIONSHIP AND THE LEGAL REGULATION

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tkebuchava Yekaterina Bezhanovna

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available This article considers the problems of financial and legal relationship and legal regulation. The financial activities of the state can not be carried out beyond the legal relations. Financial relations are expressed outwardly in the forms that are identified by the state as it is connected with the fact of its existence. With the help of law the state in the financial sphere determines and sets the types of budget revenues, taxation procedures, methods of currency use, etc. Administrative and legal regulation of financial relations is made up of such components as financial and legal relationships and legal regulation. This is why the concepts of "legal effect" and "legal regulation" come to the fore. According to the author, the term "legal regulation" and "legal effect" are not identical and have different meanings. Therefore it is necessary to distinguish between the "regulation" and "effect". This would eliminate naming the same thing with different words.

  18. De novo glomerular diseases after renal transplantation.

    Ponticelli, Claudio; Moroni, Gabriella; Glassock, Richard J

    2014-08-07

    Glomerular diseases developing in the kidney allograft are more often recurrences of the original disease affecting the native kidneys. However, in an undefined number of cases de novo, glomerular diseases unrelated to the original disease in the native kidneys can develop in the transplanted kidney. The clinical presentation and histologic features of de novo diseases are often similar to those features observed in patients with primary or secondary GN in the native kidneys. However, in transplanted kidneys, the glomerular, vascular, and tubulointerstitial changes are often intertwined with structural abnormalities already present at the time of transplant or caused by antibody- or cell-mediated allograft rejection, immunosuppressive drugs, or superimposed infection (most often of a viral nature). The pathophysiology of de novo glomerular diseases is quite variable. In rare cases of de novo minimal change disease, circulating factors increasing the glomerular permeability likely participate. Maladaptive hemodynamic changes and tissue fibrosis caused by calcineurin inhibitors or other factors may be involved in the pathogenesis of de novo FSGS. The exposure of cryptic podocyte antigens may favor the development of de novo membranous nephropathy. Many cases of de novo membranoproliferative GN are related to hepatitis C virus infection. Patients with Alport syndrome lacking antigenic epitopes in their glomerular basement membrane may develop antibodies against these glomerular basement membrane antigens expressed in the transplanted kidney. Infection may cause acute GN to have a heterogeneous clinical presentation and outcome. De novo pauci-immune GN in renal transplant is rare. Preexisting or acquired intolerance to glucose may, in the long term, cause diabetic nephropathy. The prognosis of de novo diseases depends on the type of GN, the severity of lesions caused by the alloimmune response, or the efficacy of immunosuppressive therapy. In most cases, the management

    This article addresses the concept of “industrial interests” and examines its role in a topical controversy about a large research grant from a private foundation, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, to the University of Copenhagen. The authors suggest that the debate took the form of a “public trial......” where the grant and close(r) intermingling between industry and public research was prosecuted and defended. First, the authors address how the grant was framed in the media. Second, they redescribe the case by introducing new “evidence” that, because of this framing, did not reach “the court.......” The article ends with a discussion of some implications of the analysis, including that policy making, academic research, and public debates might benefit from more detailed accounts of interests and stakes....

Los medicamentos solicitados en las demandas judiciales analizadas fueron prescriptos por 878 médicos diferentes. Al analizar el número de acciones enjuiciadas por abogado, se observa que 35% de las acciones fueron presentadas por 1% de los abogados. CONCLUSIONES: Los datos de las acciones con los medicamentos clasificados por su fabricante muestran que pocos abogados son responsables por la mayoría de las demandas judiciales de dichos medicamentos. La observación de que más de 70% de las acciones enjuiciadas para ciertos medicamentos son de responsabilidad de un abogado, puede sugerir una relación estrecha entre el abogado y el fabricante del medicamento.OBJECTIVE: To analyze the distribution rate of legal suits according to drug (manufacturer, prescribing physician, and attorney filing the lawsuit.

    Full Text Available O artigo reúne perspectivas acerca da democracia contemporânea, seus desafios e possibilidades, de quatro importantes autores vinculados, em suas especificidades, à chamada teoria crítica. Ellen Wood, Jürgen Habermas, Boaventura de Sousa Santos e Claus Offe são convocados para a terefa de esclarecimento do polissêmico conceito de democracia e expressar a crise mesma do fenômeno que se busca nomear, portanto, das idéias de representação e de participação, das relações entre o político e o econômico, entre o mercado e a cidadania. Os quatro autores indicam os limites inextricáveis no fazer democrático do modelo representativo liberal e expõem diagnósticos e prognósticos distintos, complementares ou mesmo antagônicos que buscamos sistematizar. As matrizes teóricas anunciadas permitiram-nos a reconstrução de modelos de democracia: a democracia radical de Wood em sua crítica nodal ao capitalismo como organizador da vida em sociedade; a democracia procedural ou deliberacionista de Habermas que visa à síntese dos modelos liberal e republicano sem os vícios destes; a democracia participativa Sousa Santos e sua aposta num novo contrato social e recriar o Estado; a democracia liberal reformada de Offe no capitalismo desorganizado pós-welfare. O debate em torno destas propostas de democracia, por fim, sugere pistas na renegociação da democracia em contextos pós-nacionais

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a reflection on work in call centers given the proposals presented by the anthropotechnological approach. The issues addressed relate to researches conducted especially in the 1990s and 2000s in different companies located in Brazil, where health problems, such as RSI / WMSD, together with mental disorders, emerged with high levels of incidence and prevalence. The results of the chosen approaches, activity ergonomics and work psychodynamics, were discussed in terms of the widespread dissemination of this type of work throughout different countries, setting a type of transfer and technology. Thus, the transfer of forms of work organization inspired in assumptions derived from Taylorism, disregarding the reality experienced by the workers and the uniqueness of each context, are questioned.

    2017-01-01

    The aim of this recent Australian study was to explore the experiences of lesbian women choosing motherhood. Participants included 30 self-identifying lesbian mothers. Data were collected via interviews, data collection sheets, and online journaling. The interview and journaling data were analyzed using constant comparative analysis and subsequently illuminated three main themes: becoming mothers, constructing motherhood, and legitimizing our family. These papers described the journey to motherhood and specifically explored the various methods of conception and other decisions that participants made when planning their family, the challenge of heteronormativity in health care, and legitimizing the role of the non-birth mother in de novo families. This article aims to present the participants' experiences of motherhood that was a constant topic found woven throughout all three of the identified themes. Participants identified that they had a unique opportunity to create their own mothering roles in the absence of significant "lesbian mother" role models and that they were able to adjust and to adapt their roles depending on fluctuating circumstances.

    2014-12-01

    One disadvantage of the rapid advances in modern dentistry is that treatment options have never been more varied or confusing. Compounded by a more educated population greatly assisted by online information in an increasingly litigious society, a major concern in recent times is increased litigation against health practitioners. The manner in which courts handle disputes is ambiguous and what is considered fair or just may not be reflected in the judicial process. Although legal decisions in Australia follow a doctrine of precedent, the law is not static and is often reflected by community sentiment. In medical litigation, this has seen the rejection of the Bolam principle with a preference towards greater patient rights. Recent court decisions may change the practice of dentistry and it is important that the clinician is not caught unaware. The aim of this article is to discuss legal issues that are pertinent to the practice of modern dentistry through an analysis of legal cases that have shaped health law. Through these discussions, the importance of continuing professional development, professional association and informed consent will be realized as a means to limit the legal complications of dental practice.

Os novos direitos concretizam-se não somente em normas, mas, sobretudo, em decisões. Só um humanismo radical pode dar conta da crise ecológica. Não há uma teoria que enfrente a complexidade. É importante ouvir o que outro tem a dizer. O modelo científico é autocrático e antiecológico. A transdisciplinaridade, antes de ser resposta, é um desafio lançado à ciência, que ganha em conhecimento e perde em sensibilidade.

    Full Text Available Sintomas psiquiátricos são subjetivos por natureza e tendem a se sobrepor entre diferentes desordens. Sendo assim, a criação de modelos de uma desordem neuropsiquiátrica encontra desafios pela falta de conhecimento dos fundamentos da fisiopatologia e diagnósticos precisos. Modelos animais são usados para testar hipóteses de etiologia e para representar a condição humana tão próximo quanto possível para aumentar nosso entendimento da doença e avaliar novos alvos para a descoberta de drogas. Nesta revisão, modelos animais genéticos e de neurodesenvolvimento de esquizofrenia são discutidos com respeito a achados comportamentais e neurofisiológicos e sua associação com a condição clínica. Somente modelos animais específicos de esquizofrenia podem, em último caso, levar a novas abordagens diagnósticas e descoberta de drogas. Argumentamos que biomarcadores moleculares são importantes para aumentar a tradução de animais a humanos, já que faltam a especificidade e a fidelidade necessárias às leituras comportamentais para avaliar sintomas psiquiátricos humanos.

    Full Text Available Na primeira década do século XXI, a ascensão de forças progressistas possibilitou a adoção de políticas externas mais autônomas pelos países da América do Sul. A hegemonia neoliberal e os modelos homogêneos de integração dos anos 1990 foram sucedidos por tipos heterogêneos de regionalismo. Entre as novas organizações, a Unasul constitui um fórum de coordenação política que envolve a cooperação em diferentes áreas. Trata-se da vertente política do novo regionalismo sul-americano. Em seu interior, convivem governos com distintos signos ideológicos, que participam de diferentes mecanismos integrativos. A Unasul representa o coroamento de um processo de afirmação de uma identidade sul-americana possível contra a histórica pulverização da região. O novo organismo pode converter-se em um mínimo denominador comum regional. Além disso, a Unasul projeta geopoliticamente a América do Sul e contribui para a construção de um novo polo no sistema internacional.

Such information allows a user to see whether a particular rating comes from a rater who is enthusiastic about every place she patronizes or instead from someone who is incessantly hard to please. And even when less systematized as in assessing a letter of recommendation or college transcript calibration by recourse to the decisional history of those whose judgments are being assessed is ubiquitous. Yet despite the ubiquity and utility of such calibration the legal system seems perversely to reject it. Appellate courts do not openly adjust their standard of review based on the previous judgments of the judge whose decision they are reviewing nor do judges in reviewing legislative or administrative decisions magistrates in evaluating search warrant representations or jurors in assessing witness perception.

    The United States is a country of immigrants, our government having been formed by recent arrivals. This trend has continued throughout our history; according to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than 26 million immigrants have settled in the United States since 1970, and approximately one million new immigrants come to the United States each year. The immigrant population faces highly diverse health issues that states, cities, and counties must address, many of which pose significant legal and policy issues. Social, cultural, and linguistic factors complicate those challenges, as does the overlay of federal immigration and health policy. Two federal laws, the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 and Title VI of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, have affected immigrants in two very different ways. The former made it difficult for immigrants to qualify for publicly funded benefits. In contrast, Title VI made it easier for immigrants to obtain benefits by requiring federally funded service providers to offer translating services to persons with limited English language skills. Tuberculosis treatment is perhaps the most pressing health need among recent arrivals to the United States. Methods to slow down and hopefully eliminate this disease are underway, but a more comprehensive approach to not only tuberculosis but to immigrant health in general is needed. Indeed, it will benefit those directly affected by tuberculosis and will have serious implications for the entire population for generations to come.

As a result, we emphasize how much local production of modern biotechnology needs oriented public policies to carry it out. We confirm, thus, the tendency that the process of generation of technology in peripheral countries works due to a structural coupling between State, science and economy, whereas, in the main countries, this process is made independently of the main performance of the first one.

    Full Text Available Despite the intention for precision and accuracy, legal discourse is oftentimes complex, archaic and ambiguous - which gives rise to contentious interpretation. Moreover, little or no attention is paid to the cultural dimension of legal discourse, which plays a critical role in the translation and interpretation of legal texts, as well as in the application of law. This paper endeavours to illustrate the impact the culture, or, more precisely, legal culture has on the way legal texts are construed or translated and to present problems which arise in the interpretation, translation and application of law as a result of cultural diversities

  12. Legal consequences of kleptomania.

    Although studies have examined clinical characteristics of kleptomania, no previous studies have examined the legal consequences of kleptomania. From 2001 to 2007, 101 adult subjects (n = 27 [26.7%] males) with DSM-IV kleptomania were assessed on sociodemographics and clinical characteristics including symptom severity, comorbidity, and legal repercussions. Of 101 subjects with kleptomania, 73.3% were female. Mean age of shoplifting onset was 19.4 +/- 12.0 years, and subjects shoplifted a mean of 8.2 +/- 11.0 years prior to meeting full criteria for kleptomania. Co-occurring depressive, substance use, and impulse control disorders were common. Sixty-nine subjects with kleptomania (68.3%) had been arrested, 36.6% had been arrested but not convicted, 20.8% had been convicted and incarcerated after conviction, while only 10.9% had been convicted and not incarcerated after conviction. Kleptomania is associated with significant legal repercussions. The findings emphasize the need for rigorous treatment approaches to target kleptomania symptoms and prevent re-offending.

    Full Text Available Advances in the information and communication technologies have led to the availability of a range of primary and secondary legal research publications online via the Internet, rather than on other storing devices such as compact discs or publications in the print media. Not only has information and communication technology (ICT impacted on the availability of legal information resources, but its effects are also noticed in various law-related areas such as legal practice management, legal education, corporate governance and the law per se. The question addressed by this article is whether the application of ICTs has an effect on the practice of law, and specifically whether information and knowledge management affects the processes of legal research in modern legal practice. Various issues are considered in this regard, including what the concept of knowledge management (KM entails in a law firm and what the current KM trends in South African law firms are. The article investigates global trends in the application of ICTs for legal research purposes, what the specific applications of KM in support of legal research may be, how information technology applications and KM systems and strategies can support the legal research process, and what the benefits of KM are to legal research. It finally discusses the impact technology has had on the skills required of competitive legal professionals.

    Full Text Available The necessity of examination of every case within its peculiar conditions in social sciences requires different approaches complying with the spirit and nature of social sciences. Multiple realities require different and various perceptual interpretations. In modern world and social sciences, interpretation of perception of valued and multi-valued have been started to be understood by the principles of fuzziness and fuzzy logic. Having the verbally expressible degrees of truthness such as true, very true, rather true, etc. fuzzy logic provides the opportunity for the interpretation of especially complex and rather vague set of information by flexibility or equivalence of the variables’ of fuzzy limitations. The methods and principles of fuzzy logic can be benefited in examination of the methodological problems of law, especially in the applications of filling the legal loopholes arising from the ambiguities and interpretation problems in order to understand the legal rules in a more comprehensible and applicable way and the efficiency of legal implications. On the other hand, fuzzy logic can be used as a technical legal method in legal education and especially in legal case studies and legal practice applications in order to provide the perception of law as a value and the more comprehensive and more quality perception and interpretation of value of justice, which is the core value of law. In the perception of what happened as it has happened in legal relationships and formations, the understanding of social reality and sociological legal rules with multi valued sense perspective and the their applications in accordance with the fuzzy logic’s methods could create more equivalent and just results. It can be useful for the young lawyers and law students as a facilitating legal method especially in the materialization of the perception and interpretation of multi valued and variables.

    Full Text Available Neste trabalho são propostos dois modelos tipo DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis em que um novo input (ou um novo output deve ser distribuído de maneira justa para todas as unidades (DMUs - Decision Making Units de uma corporação. Uma característica interessante dos modelos propostos é que a forma dessa distribuição é influenciada pelos valores dos inputs já empregados e dos outputs já gerados em cada DMU. Os modelos foram construídos de acordo com o perfil geométrico da fronteira CCR, podendo ter forma côncava ou convexa conforme a natureza da variável que se quer distribuir. Mostramos que, sob essa hipótese de um formato geométrico específico para a fronteira, torna-se simples a distribuição do novo input (ou output entre as várias DMUs, pois cada uma delas receberá a fração do novo input (ou output que a torne eficiente, forçando sua posição sobre a fronteira pré-determinada.In this work we present two DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis models in which a new input (or output is to be fairly assigned to all units (DMUs - Decision Making Units of a corporation. An interesting characteristic of those proposed models is that the way this distribution is influenced by both inputs and outputs used in each DMU. The models were built in accordance with the geometric shape of CCR frontier and they can be convex or concave, depending on the nature of the variables we intend to share. We show that, under this assumption, it becomes relatively easy the distribution of a new input (or output among several DMU's, considering that each DMU will receive the new input (or output fraction in order to become efficient, forcing its position on the specific frontier.

In addition, in the current economic situation, budget constraints are an important factor for the rise of these contracts, which allows creating new business opportunities for the private sector and improves the effectiveness and efficiency of public investment management. In the Spanish case the collaboration between public and private sector over the last years has been through different legal forms, but mainly through administrative licensing contract for public works. But it is in 2007 when the current Law 30/2007 of public sector contracts, enter one of the largest developments, the incorporation of a new contract: Collaboration agreement between the public sector and the private sector. El empleo de los contratos de colaboración público-privada se ha ido incrementando y la Unión Europea se ha convertido en una firme impulsora de los mismos. Por otro lado, en el contexto económico actual, las restricciones presupuestarias son un factor relevante para el auge de estos contratos, que permiten crear nuevas oportunidades de negocio para el sector privado y mejorar la eficacia y eficiencia de la inversión pública de la Administración. En el caso español se ha producido esta colaboración entre entes públicos y privados a lo largo de los últimos años mediante diferentes formas jurídicas, pero principalmente a través del contrato administrativo de concesión de obra pública. Sin embargo es en el año 2007 cuando con la vigente Ley 30/2007, de Contratos del Sector Público, se introduce una de las mayores novedades, la incorporación de un nuevo contrato típico denominado contrato de colaboración entre el sector público y el sector privado. Die Verwendung von Verträgen für öffentlich-private Partnerschaften ist gestiegen und die Europäische Union ist zu einem starken Antragsteller geworden. Auf der anderen

  15. [Surgical treatment of de-novo scoliosis].

    Putzier, M; Pumberger, M; Halm, H; Zahn, R K; Franke, J

    2016-09-01

    De-novo scoliosis is most commonly associated with chronic back pain and in 70 % of cases with neurological symptoms of the lower extremities. In recent literature, the occurrence and severity of segmental lateral listhesis has been discussed as being an important prognostic factor of sagittal and frontal deformity progression. In general, operative interventions in patients with de-novo scoliosis are associated with a high rate of complications. Therefore, conservative treatment modalities are recommended at early stages of the disease. If conservative management fails and a sufficient reduction of the patient's symptoms cannot be achieved, depending on the symptoms, a selective decompression, short-segment fusion or long-instrumented reduction and fusion are indicated. Additionally to the patient's symptoms, specific imaging diagnostics are necessary to develop an adequate surgical treatment strategy. Selective decompression without fusion is indicated in patients with a fixed deformity and primarily neurologic pain or deficits. In conditions of a focal pathology as cause of significant low back pain and/or neurologic symptoms at early stages of deformity, a short segment fusion is the treatment of choice. However, short-segment fusion as a less-invasive procedure must not be performed in biplanar unbalanced patients and/or advanced de-novo scoliosis. In advanced degenerative de-novo scoliosis a long-segment reposition and fusion following an alignment correction are needed. Standardized pre-operative planning and perioperative management are highly critical to the post-operative success. All operative treatment strategies in patients with de-novo scoliosis can be successful but they require sophisticated and individual surgical indication.

The article 50 of the Treaty on European Union allows member states to withdraw from the European Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements. After the referendum is a period of two years from the british notice of intention to withdraw to negotiate terms of exit unless all the other member states agree to extend it. Article 50 put the balance of power firmly in the hands of the 27 other states more than the leaving state. After the time limit in article 50 is expiring, Europen Union in theory law ceases to apply in the United Kingdom.

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the considerable role of legal translation in intercultural communication. Effective intercultural communication requires sufficient language skills and also extensive knowledge of the cultures involved, which encompass official social behaviour norms, enshrined in the corresponding legal systems. The basic legal terms often pose substantial difficulties even for experienced translators and, hence, to communication, because these terms nominate concepts that are inherently linked with culture, moral values and legal tradition of a given country. In intercultural communication the most widely used legal English is permeated by Anglo-Saxon legal system and concepts which have little or no equivalents in Romano-Germanic or other continental law countries. The authors present a comparative analysis of the translation strategies employed by the compilers of two main English-Lithuanian law dictionaries (V. Bitinaitė „Mokomasis anglų-lietuvių kalbų teisės terminų žodynas“ and O. Armalytė, L. Pažūsis. „Anglų-lietuvių kalbų teisės žodynas“ in translation of the English-Welsh law terms defining abstract common law terms, some specific English-Welsh legal professions and the English-Welsh court names. The findings of the analysis reveal the difficulties which the dictionary compilers have to cope with when translating culture-bound terms and the strategies chosen by them for problematic translations. The research also highlights the role of the legal language translator as the key figure in facilitating different cultural background comprehension of the legal terms and, what is even more important, specific aspects of legal systems; the latter being necessary for efficacious intercultural cooperation.

    Full Text Available Este artigo recolhe relativas à identidade humana no contexto das pesquisas científicas e das transformações ocorridas nos últimos tempos, especialmente no século XX. A nova fisica, com um novo desenho do universo, uma nova cosmologia, radicaliza, por um lado, as questões em torno do humano, e, por outro lado, abre novas possibilidades. Um novo paradigma, mais holístico, incluindo a dimensão ecológica, ou ao menos com cenários mais adequados, pode ser vislumbrado, embora ainda não descrito, por estarmos numa "era de transição". Na parte que nos toca no universo - a terra - o futuro da vida depende, em grande parte, de decisões éticas que somente o ser humano é convocado a assumir

    Full Text Available As diversas mudanças que vêm ocorrendo na disciplina de marketing têm sido consideradas, por diversos estudiosos da área, como um novo paradigma. Vargo e Lusch (2004 apontam a emergência de uma nova lógica, cuja ênfase está nos aspectos intangíveis, como habilidades, informação e conhecimento e na interatividade e conectividade dos relacionamentos, o qual poderia vir a substituir o modelo tradicional. O objetivo deste ensaio teórico é propor uma reflexão acerca da Service Dominant Logic (SDL, proposta por Vargo e Lusch (2004, a fim de identificar se, de fato, ela pode ser considerada um novo paradigma em marketing. Para tal, é realizado um exame do desenvolvimento teórico da disciplina, bem como da estrutura teórica proposta pelos autores, com base na perspectiva filosófico-científica e no conceito de paradigma de Kuhn (2006. A análise demonstra que o marketing evoluiu, por um lado, orientado pelas alterações impostas pelo ambiente; por outro lado, por meio de discussões teóricas que permitiram o avanço da disciplina. Não houve, ao logo deste processo, nem mesmo com a lógica dominante dos serviços, uma ruptura drástica que possa ser considerada uma troca de paradigmas.

    2012-01-01

    In the processes of protein synthesis and folding, newly synthesized polypeptides are tightly connected to the macromolecules, such as ribosomes, lipid bilayers, or cotranslationally folded domains in multidomain proteins, representing a hallmark of de novo protein folding environments in vivo. Such linkage effects on the aggregation of endogenous polypeptides have been largely neglected, although all these macromolecules have been known to effectively and robustly solubilize their linked heterologous proteins in fusion or display technology. Thus, their roles in the aggregation of linked endogenous polypeptides need to be elucidated and incorporated into the mechanisms of de novo protein folding in vivo. In the classic hydrophobic interaction-based stabilizing mechanism underlying the molecular chaperone-assisted protein folding, it has been assumed that the macromolecules connected through a simple linkage without hydrophobic interactions and conformational changes would make no effect on the aggregation of their linked polypeptide chains. However, an increasing line of evidence indicates that the intrinsic properties of soluble macromolecules, especially their surface charges and excluded volume, could be important and universal factors for stabilizing their linked polypeptides against aggregation. Taken together, these macromolecules could act as folding helpers by keeping their linked nascent chains in a folding-competent state. The folding assistance provided by these macromolecules in the linkage context would give new insights into de novo protein folding inside the cell. PMID:22949867

    This thesis is a preliminary study of American legal culture. Nowadays more and more scholars see the importance of legal culture and do studies on it. The author selects a number of American legal TV plays and movies; analyzes their topics, main characters, and plots; then finds out why United States adopt the legal system; what kind of legal culture it has; and how the legal culture is reflected in those movies and TV plays. The author hopes this thesis can work not only as an insight into the American legal culture, but also a source of reference for china to improve its legal system.

  20. Legalized Abortion in Japan

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hart, Thomas M.

    1967-01-01

    The enactment of the Eugenic Protection Act in Japan was followed by many changes. The population explosion was stemmed, the birth rate was halved, and while the marriage rate remained steady the divorce rate declined. The annual total of abortions increased until 1955 and then slowly declined. The highest incidence of abortions in families is in the 30 to 34 age group when there are four children in the family. As elsewhere abortion in advanced stages of pregnancy is associated with high morbidity and mortality. There is little consensus as to the number of criminal abortions. Reasons for criminal abortions can be found in the legal restrictions concerning abortion: Licensing of the abortionist, certification of hospitals, taxation of operations and the requirement that abortion be reported. Other factors are price competition and the patient's desire for secrecy. Contraception is relatively ineffective as a birth control method in Japan. Oral contraceptives are not yet government approved. In 1958 alone 1.1 per cent of married women were sterilized and the incidence of sterilization was increasing. PMID:6062283

Ainda que no plano legal o Sistema Único de Saúde corresponda a um modelo de atenção em saúde, no plano concreto das políticas públicas e das ações, o sistema dá origem a um modelo que resulta não de textos jurídicos nem de formulações teóricas, mas da práxis dos agentes envolvidos. Considerando que a gestão do cotidiano em saúde é um espaço privilegiado e prioritário para a produção e consolidação dos modelos de atenção à saúde, é necessário estimular e apoiar o desenvolvimento de competências técnicas e operacionais diferentes daquelas necessárias à gerência dos cuidados relacionados às demandas individuais.

    There are differences between legal English and general English. Legal English relates to the legal profession. Law needs to maintain the impression of seriousness, standardization, accuracy and objectiveness, and as a result, legal English also has these characteristics. Compared to general everyday English, the application of legal English vocabulary requires consider-ation of these characteristics. In the translation of legal content, attention is also needed to be paid to the characteristics of foren-sic linguistics. Standardized legal terms are used in the translation of legal regulations and other content to keep the characteris-tics of faithfulness, accuracy, smoothness and consistency. In this paper, legal English vocabulary is discussed based on its char-acteristics, as well as the method of translation of legal content. For practical translation of legal English, translation methods in-clude literal translation, free translation and addition and omission. These methods are briefly discussed in this paper.

  10. Legal Aspects of Telepathology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Christian Dierks

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available In some legal surroundings telepathology is considered a breach of registrational barriers. The recommendation of the G 8 states in Europe for required legislation in telemedicine suggests to recognise that the localization of the remote health care professional defines the site not only of licensure but also of liability. This approach must be considered helpful, since it can solve many problems brought about by the doubtful results of private international law and conventions like the European Union (EU and Lugano Convention. Under today's conditions in private international law it must be considered essential to agree upon a choice of law and stipulate a court of jurisdiction when doing telepathology. However, the opposing aims of insuring the patients claims and avoiding jurisdictions that exceed the local expectations of the medical professional must be reconciled. Data protection and data security are other crucial topics that require attention. Generally speaking, the principles of minimum data exchange, anonymity, pseudonymity and cryptography must be established as a basis for all telepathology procedures. Only when personal data is needed, its use can be legitimated. Written consent of the patient is advised. To guarantee a cross‐border security level the regulations of the EU‐Data Protection Directive need to be transformed into national law. In practise, cross‐border dataflow shall only take place where the security level can be maintained even within the other country. Finally, reimbursement questions must be answered to establish a sound economical basis for telepathology. The spatial distance between the participants may yield the question, whether the service has been rendered to an extent necessary and sufficient for reimbursement. If reimbursement takes place on a cross‐border or cross‐regional level, severe disturbances of the health systems can occur. Regulation schemes or treaties need therefore to be developed to

    Marcelo Farina de Medeiros

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available This study uses the deductive method, dialectical and empirical for through doctrinal, jurisprudential and legal research to contribute to the analysis of contractarian theories, their historical context and application period. With the liberal revolutions sought to autonomy in social relations, both horizontal and vertical. In this context came the classical contractual theory, based on pacta sunt servanda. However, with the promotion of social relations and weakness of the negotiating phase in the execution of legal, especially with the advent of the accession agreement, Law Democratic State principles came to be harmed, resulting in the need for state action to the equilibrium search of legal relations. It comes, then, the contemporary theory of contracts, to prioritize for the protection of social values, bringing as legal object to be protected the person, instead of the bargaining act. Therefore we see a paradigm break, occasioning a milestone in negotiation law, from which the contract social function shall govern the extent of the autonomy of the parties.

  8. De novo autoimmune hepatitis after liver transplantation.

    The Kings College group was the first to describe a clinical syndrome similar to autoimmune hepatitis in children and young adults transplanted for non-immune mediated liver diseases. They coined the term "de novo autoimmune hepatitis". Several other liver transplant centres confirmed this observation. Even though the condition is uncommon, patients with de novo AIH are now seen in most of the major transplant centres. The disease is usually characterized by features of acute hepatitis in otherwise stable transplant recipients. The most characteristic laboratory hallmark is a marked hypergammaglobulinaemia. Autoantibodies are common, mostly ANA. We described also a case of LKM1-positivity in a patients transplanted for Wilson's disease, however this patients did not develop clinical or histological features of AIH. Development of SLA/LP-autoantibodies is also not described. Therefore, serologically de novo AIH appears to correspond to type 1 AIH. Like classical AIH patients respond promptly to treatment with increased doses of prednisolone and azathioprine, while the calcineurin inhibitors cyclosporine or tacrolimus areof very limited value - which is not surprising, as almost all patients develop de novo AIH while receiving these drugs. Despite the good response to treatment, most patients remain a clinical challenge as complete stable remissions are uncommon and flares, relapses and chronic disease activity can often occur. Pathogenetically this syndrome is intriguing. It is not clear, if the immune response is directed against allo-antigens, neo-antigens in the liver, or self-antigens, possibly shared by donor and host cells. It is very likely that the inflammatory milieu due to alloreactive cells in the transplanted organ contribute to the disease process. Either leading to aberrant antigen presentation, or providing co-stimulatory signals leading to the breaking of self-tolerance. The development of this disease in the presence of treatment with calcineurin

    Full Text Available The legal evaluation of the penalty interest, meaning the ex lege determination of its level is applicable only in the case of non-fulfillment of a monetary payment obligation. The applicability of the system of legal evaluation of the interest is generally determined by the absence of a document that ascertains the agreement of the parties, such as a contract, through which the parties, following this agreement, evaluate the prejudice caused by the non-fulfillment of a monetary payment obligation, before the prejudice has occurred. The legal evaluation of the penalty interest, as a component of the regulation in the field of legal interest has the purpose to ensure creditor’s protection. Regardless of the prejudice caused to the creditor, the legal penalty interest shall be determined by relating it to a variable benchmark that is the level of the reference interest rate of the National Bank of Romania, which is the monetary policy interest rate of the National Bank of Romania.

    De novo origination has recently been appreciated to be an important mechanism contributing to the origin of genes. Evidence indicates that de novo originated genes can evolve important and even essential functions rapidly. We present an "adaptation following neutrality" process to explain the evolution of essential function of new genes. How new de novo originated genes become involved in pathways and interact with other old genes, and the exact functions of these new genes, however, remains largely undocumented. Examinations of the function of de novo origin and the function of noncoding RNA genes should become more frequent and appreciated in the future studies.

  1. Prostituição: Que Modelo Jurídico-Político para Portugal?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marta Graça

    Full Text Available RESUMO A prostituição em Portugal conheceu diversos modelos jurídico-políticos, como a regulamentação, o proibicionismo e o abolicionismo, prevalecendo este último na atualidade. No discurso social e científico encontramos sobretudo duas posições: os defensores da prostituição como trabalho e os que a consideram uma violação dos direitos humanos. Este artigo apresenta a evolução histórico-legal dos modelos de intervenção na prostituição em Portugal, de forma a contextualizarmos e compreendermos a influência dos discursos. Em seguida, expõe as opiniões dos profissionais das instituições, que dirigem respostas a esta população, sobre a atual moldura jurídico-política, com a finalidade de analisar as diferentes perspectivas sobre o trabalho sexual. Baseando-se em pesquisa de natureza qualitativa que contemplou 23 entrevistas, conclui-se que embora não exista uma ideia clara sobre qual modelo adotar, a preocupação com o respeito pelos direitos humanos e o combate ao estigma estão patentes, independentemente do paradigma em questão.

En los sitios de Texas, se están convirtiendo legalmente los bosques en espacios urbanos de uso residencial, comercial, e industrial, mientras que en Venezuela se talan legal e ilegalmente los bosques para transformarlos en sistemas agrícolas de subsistencia. Las técnicas contemporáneas de modelación facilitan simulaciones de decisiones humanas y de la dinámica del ecosistema que pueden revelar patrones inesperados. Tales acoplamientos de los sistemas humanos y los sistemas naturales se reconocen actualmente como una forma de biocomplejidad. Nuestra metodología es flexible, para permitir la adaptación a cada uno de los sitios del estudio, capturando las características esenciales de los cambios respectivos de la utilización del territorio, y de las reacciones naturales y decisiones humanas. Las interacciones entre los humanos se simulan usando los modelos multi-agentes que actúan sobre modelos del paisaje forestal, y perciben la respuesta de los efectos de estas acciones en forma de cambios de hábitat ecológicos y dinámica hidrológica.

    Full Text Available Cybercrime has become a global phenomenon, which is causing more harm to individual citizens, organizations, society and the state. Most countries in the world compare cybercrime with offences such as terrorism and drug trafficking due to its risks and profitability. Cybersecurity is the central category to fight cybercrime in cyberspace. Therefore, the strategic legal regulation of cybersecurity is one of the most relevant problems in EU, including Lithuania. So far cybersecurity legal regulation analysis in scientific literature has been rather limited. The European Commission, together with the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, has published a cybersecurity strategy alongside a Commission proposed directive on network and information security (NIS. The cybersecurity strategy – “An Open, Safe and Secure Cyberspace” - represents the EU’s comprehensive vision on how best to prevent and respond to cyber disruptions and attacks. The purpose of its is to further European values of freedom and democracy and ensure the digital economy can safely grow. Specific actions are aimed at enhancing cyber resilience of information systems, reducing cybercrime and strengthening EU international cyber-security policy and cyber defence. The main goal of the paper is to analyze and compare the EU cybersecurity strategy and experience of several foreign countries with the strategic legal regulation of cybersecurity in Lithuania. The article consists of four parts. The first part dealt with the EU cybersecurity strategy. The second part of the article examines the comparative aspect of foreign cybersecurity strategic legal regulation. The third part deals with attempts in Lithuania to draft cybersecurity law and the holistic approach of cybersecurity legal regulation. The fourth part examines Lithuanian cybersecurity strategy and comments on the main probleas related with the strategy. Several different approaches

  18. The Relationship between EU Legal Order and Albanian Legal Order

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper is an analysis of the interaction of Community law with the national law and in particular the ratio between Community - Albanian law. Main purpose of this paper is to clarify the position of the international legal order and in particular that of the Community in the Albanian legal regulated by constitutional provisions. During the analysis of the interaction between the Community and the Albanian law a question arises in case of a conflictual confrontation between the two legal systems, which one will be applied? Such situation always occurs in the cases when a provision of EU law transfers the rights and imposes direct obligations to the citizens of the EU while the content of this provision collides with the rule of national law. To resolve such a situation, the Republic of Albania has held a definite stance: bigotry retains superiority of international versus national law, positioning it in the hierarchy of sources of law immediately after the Constitution of the Republic of Albania. It is clear that the Albanian constitution legislators have been aware of their European perspective and for this fact the EU law and its legal order can survive only if compliance and protection is guaranteed by two cornerstones: direct applicability of Community law and the advantage of Community law over national law. They are two fundamental principles of European law which guarantee the implementation of the uniform and priority of the right of the EU in all Member States.

    Genetic studies of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have established that de novo duplications and deletions contribute to risk. However, ascertainment of structural variants (SVs) has been restricted by the coarse resolution of current approaches. By applying a custom pipeline for SV discovery, genotyping, and de novo assembly to genome sequencing of 235 subjects (71 affected individuals, 26 healthy siblings, and their parents), we compiled an atlas of 29,719 SV loci (5,213/genome), comprising 11 different classes. We found a high diversity of de novo mutations, the majority of which were undetectable by previous methods. In addition, we observed complex mutation clusters where combinations of de novo SVs, nucleotide substitutions, and indels occurred as a single event. We estimate a high rate of structural mutation in humans (20%) and propose that genetic risk for ASD is attributable to an elevated frequency of gene-disrupting de novo SVs, but not an elevated rate of genome rearrangement.

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available This picture supports a view that modernization processes lead naturally to legal structures similar to what can be observed in Western societies and that also global structures will emerge on the same model. Together with modernization theory another prominent theory often alluded to as justification for legalization is Institutional Economics where rules and institutions are considered mechanisms for effective transaction costs avoidance. My earlier publications compare these and other approaches for explaining the role of law in the economy. A third theory is Max Weber’s legal rationalization, an evolutionary process running from traditional irrational forms to formal, bureaucratic forms of legal domination. Weber’s view that legal rationalization is our “fate” and informal rules and institutions are necessarily outdated will be reconsidered from a historical perspective and confronted with empirical data gathered in the area of the governance of global business transactions. This article will attempt to show that although Weber’s influential approach still helps to explain much of what occurs in domestic models of capitalism it doesn’t seem to grasp the growing complexities of globalized capitalism. Este análisis apoya la opinión de que los procesos de modernización conducen naturalmente a las estructuras jurídicas similares a lo que se observa en las sociedades occidentales y que también las estructuras globales surgirán en el mismo modelo.

    A 39-year-old man complained of unspecific chest pains four years after kidney transplantation. Laboratory tests revealed a slow increase of retentions values; the value of soluble IL-2 receptor was slightly elevated. Computed tomography of the chest confirmed mediastinal and bilateral hilar masses. The broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) showed a marked increase of the CD4/CD8 T-lymphocyte ratio and the aspiration cytology of these lymphadenopathies revealed the cytopathological characteristics of sarcoidosis. An asymptomatic stage I sarcoidosis was diagnosed, and the immunosuppressive treatment with cyclosporine, mycophenolatmofetil and prednisone was retained. The patient has remained asymptomatic for now six months. When bilateral hilar / mediastinal lymphadenopathies occur after organ transplantation with immunosuppression de novo sarcoidosis should be taken into account. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

  11. De Novo Kidney Regeneration with Stem Cells

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Shinya Yokote

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Recent studies have reported on techniques to mobilize and activate endogenous stem-cells in injured kidneys or to introduce exogenous stem cells for tissue repair. Despite many recent advantages in renal regenerative therapy, chronic kidney disease (CKD remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality and the number of CKD patients has been increasing. When the sophisticated structure of the kidneys is totally disrupted by end stage renal disease (ESRD, traditional stem cell-based therapy is unable to completely regenerate the damaged tissue. This suggests that whole organ regeneration may be a promising therapeutic approach to alleviate patients with uncured CKD. We summarize here the potential of stem-cell-based therapy for injured tissue repair and de novo whole kidney regeneration. In addition, we describe the hurdles that must be overcome and possible applications of this approach in kidney regeneration.

    Cirigliano, D.; Rovira, M.; Mauas, P.

    En este trabajo presentamos perfiles de líneas del CaII, MgII y HeI calculados para distintos modelos de protuberancias, y los comparamos con observaciones obtenidas por los satélites OSO 8 y SOHO. Para obtener las poblaciones de los distintos niveles de los átomos, utilizamos un código numérico que combina las ecuaciones de transporte de radiación y equilibrio estadístico en un único sistema de ecuaciones no lineal. Los modelos básicos que consideramos para las protuberancias consisten en placas homogéneas y unidimensionales apoyadas sobre la superficie del Sol. Dichas placas se hallan estratificadas en hebras y los modelos difieren entre sí en la temperatura y ancho de la placa, en la presión a la cual se halla el plasma y en el número de hebras. A partir de estos modelos se investiga cada uno de estos parámetros libres y como influyen en la atmósfera de las protuberancias solares y en el perfil de línea de cada especie estudiada, con el objetivo de determinar las condiciones en las que se halla el material atmosférico de estas protuberancias.

  16. The curious case of legal translation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    E. Cornelius

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available This article explores the nature and scope of legal translation which is an under-researched area in South Africa. In this article the author predicts that the demand for competent legal translators will increase in the future, evidenced by a recent call by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development(DoJ&CD, inviting applications for ten positions for “legislative language practitioners”. However, legal translation differs substantially from general translation in the sense that legal translation is subject to heavy restrictions at all levels and legal considerations are of paramount importance in a country such as South Africa, which provides for eleven official languages. Legal translation involves different legal languages, different legal systems and different cultural systems that require specialised knowledge and skills of the translator. The aim of this article is to investigate the core competencies and skills the legal translator must have; to consider the balance between legal competence and translation or linguistic competence; and to propose a discourse-analytical method of source text analysis, developed by Bhatia as a simplification strategy, as this may be a powerful tool in the training of legal translators in South Africa. Recent developments in South Africa relating to the Department of Arts and Culture’s obligation to translate legislation into all official languages, have important consequences for legal translation in general and the training of legal translators in particular.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schreiber, M; Schott, G E; Rascher, W; Bender, A W

    2009-12-01

    Female circumcision (genital mutilation) is a criminal violation of human rights under German law. Even with consent of the person to be circumcised and/or her legal representative this procedure must not be carried out since a consent to female circumcision is unethical and therefore void. As much consent as there is on female circumcision the legal situation with ritual male circumcision is very unclear. In practice and unnoticed by the public male circumcision is carried out - be it for medical or ritual reasons - without deeper-going reflexions on the clearness of the medical indication or the legal situation with ritual circumcision. From the medical aspect there are big differences between female and male circumcision but also certain parallels. Various reasons, partly founded in prejudice and misinformation, make people refrain from regarding circumcision of boys also as illegal. Contrary to the prevailing opinion male circumcision also represents a bodily harm which a doctor can only carry out after a preoperative interview and with the consent of the affected person. Since ritual male circumcision does not serve the wellbeing of a child it is not possible for the parents to give their consent to the circumcision in lieu of the child. Male circumcision is only permitted if the child has given his consent and is thus only legally permitted if the child has reached an age at which he is mature enough to understand the meaning and extent of such an action which is hardly the case before he has completed his 16 (th) year.

  3. [The debate over drug legalization].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Babín Vich, Francisco de Asís

    2013-01-01

    The debate over drug legalization appears frequently in the media as a potential solution to issues such as drug trafficking and other problems related to drug use. In Spain, private consumption or even the production of small quantities of certain plants, whose active ingredients are considered illegal drugs, if clearly for own consumption are not practices criminalized by any law. In addition, a drug addict is considered a person who is ill. Although it has not always been like that even in the countries that have called for this debate, where at times the law prosecutes consumers. The population of our country, according to the views expressed in the opinion polls, prefer to increase preventive measures, foster the treatment freely assumed by drug addicts and make stricter the repression on drug trafficking. Therefore, when speaking of "legalization" we should be scrupulous with the semantics; legalize and decriminalize are not the same, it is not the same decriminalize consumption than decriminalize trafficking, neither is the same decriminalize private consumption than public consumption. Decriminalize private consumption is a fact in our country. Beyond this, we advocate for the strict need to analyze from a scientific perspective the hypothetical benefits that would result from drug legalization. Certainly, from the public health perspective, they are hard to find. We believe that the same logic applied to tobacco, increasing the restrictions on its use, is the path to follow with any addictive substance.

    Full Text Available O presente estudo foi desenvolvido com o objetivo de contribuir para a compreensão do "ambientalismo empresarial" do setor florestal brasileiro, particularmente sua relação com os sistemas voluntários de certificação florestal, identificando-se estratégias que possam conduzir a melhorias efetivas de seu desempenho ambiental. Desenvolveu-se um modelo teórico, utilizando a estrutura de Sistemas Abertos e técnicas do pensamento sistêmico, identificando as variáveis que compõem as dinâmicas institucional e organizacional do setor. O modelo permitiu descrever, compreender e inferir sobre o comportamento futuro do sistema, além de estabelecer hipóteses para novos estudos. A partir do modelo, verificaram-se três diferentes estratégias empresariais na adoção dos padrões para certificação, sendo elas a "Adoção Simbólica", o "Mimetismo" e a "Adoção Efetiva". Concluiu-se que a opção por uma estratégia que conduza a mudanças efetivas no setor florestal requer o estabelecimento de uma visão compartilhada de sustentabilidade, que contribua para a consolidação de instituições e que oriente as respostas empresariais.

    Full Text Available Em 1998, uma Lei Federal criou no Brasil uma nova figura institucional, as Organizações Sociais (OS. Tratava-se de um novo esforço no sentido de dar ao aparelho do Estado flexibilidade, agilidade e abertura à participação da sociedade civil. Esse novo modelo foi testado inicialmente com a Fundação Roquete Pinto, mantenedora da TVE – Televisão Educativa, do Governo Federal, e foi, pouco a pouco, sendo apropriado por outras iniciativas dos governos federal, estaduais e municipais. Inaugurava e prenunciava a possibilidade de parcerias público-privadas – PPP –, que se tornariam mecanismos legais na década seguinte embora com objetivos distintos. As PPPestão sendo usadas basicamente para alavancar recursos e criar condições de uma gestão mais moderna na área de infra-estrutura. As OS buscam possibilitar a atividades não exclusivas de Estado, como gestão de museus, teatros, hospitais e de institutos científicos, mecanismos mais adequados a seu ambiente de atuação. Este artigo procura sintetizar uma reflexão sobre a experiência de implantação de OS na área da cultura no estado de São Paulo. Embora se trate de uma experiência incipiente, ainda a ser testada em toda sua complexidade, traz em seu bojo interessantes possibilidades de gestão compartilhada com a sociedade civil, mas, ao mesmo tempo, o risco de perder-se o controle da política pública, especialmente se a Secretaria da Cultura, instância formuladora e avaliadora da política cultural, não for equipada institucionalmente para uma nova forma de atuação. É sobre essas questões que o artigo traz relatos de sucessos parciais e alertas para quem se preocupa com gestão de políticas públicas no País. Trata-se de uma análise apaixonada, nos dois sentidos da palavra e, certamente, não isenta.

  12. Proposal of a new biokinetic model for niobium; Proposta de um novo modelo biocinetico para o niobio

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Oliveira, Roges

    2006-07-01

    There are two niobium isotopes generated in nuclear power plants: 95 Nb and 94 Nb. Workers and members of the public are subjects to intake these radionuclides in accident situation. For dose calculation purpose, it is very important to develop a model that describes in a more realistic way the kinetics of niobium inside of the human body. Presently the model adopted by ICRP (ICRP, 1989) is based on animal studies and describes the behavior of niobium in human being in a simple manner. The new model proposal describes the kinetics of the niobium from the intake into the blood until the excretion, doing this in a more realistic form and considering not only data from animals but data from human beings as well. For this objective, a workers group of a niobium extraction and processing industry exposed to stable niobium (93 Nb) in oxide insoluble form with associated uranium, was monitored for uranium and niobium determination in urinary and fecal excretion, by mass spectrometry. Based in the ratios of the niobium concentration in urinary and faecal excretion of this workers and animal data study, a new biokinetic model for niobium was proposed, with the followings modifications relative to ICRP model: a new compartment that represents muscular tissue; the fractions which are deposited into the compartment are modified; a third component in the retention equation of the bone tissue; introduction of recirculation between organs and blood. The new model was applied for a case of accidental intake and described adequately the experimental data.

    Full Text Available As sucessivas crises financeiras dos países "emergentes", na segunda metade dos anos 90, despertaram o interesse dos economistas do mainstream, uma vez que os modelos de crises cambiais de primeira geração, desenvolvidos nos anos 80, revelaram-se insuficientes para a compreensão destes eventos. Nesse contexto, foram desenvolvidos novos modelos que incorporaram, como condicionantes destas crises, fatos estilizados, que têm caracterizado o sistema financeiro internacional contemporâneo, dentre os quais os ataques especulativos auto-realizáveis e o comportamento de manada dos investidores estrangeiros. Este artigo pretende apresentar as principais características desses novos modelos. Primeiramente, apresentam-se os modelos desenvolvidos após a crise mexicana, que seguiram a tradição dos modelos de segunda geração desenvolvidos após a crise do Sistema Monetário Europeu. Em seguida, são examinados os modelos que surgem após a crise asiática, denominados "modelos de terceira geração", nos quais a crise cambial está intrinsecamente associada a uma crise bancária. Seguem-se algumas considerações finais.In the 90s, the succession of financial crises in the so called "emergent countries", with characteristics that haven't been considered by the first-generation models of exchange crises developed in the 80s, was followed by the emergency of new models of exchange crisis. The purpose of this article is to present these models, which have introduced in their analytical framework new elements, how the self-fulfilling expectations and the volatility of the capital flows. Firstly, we analyze the models developed after the Mexican crise, which have followed the tradition of the second-generation models that emerged after the European monetary system crise.

    Full Text Available The legal technique was initially developed as a kind of “interpreter” for the legislative will in the legal language using a specific ingenuity of legal engineering. Historically, the theoretical base of the legal technique was formed on a phased basis, essentially stimulated by state reforms, social transformations, and active legislation systematization. It should be mentioned here that legal technique is a distinctive category reflecting the political, economic, and legal situation in the historical period of a certain state development, but being extra-national in itself.The resource harmonization of the legal technique within the European legal framework means norm-setting regulations, coordination, and elaboration of common recommendations for the European countries. The cooperation in the legal technique standards harmonization will require the all-European cooperation to the new level as far as legal standards, human rights, democratic development, legitimacy and cultural cooperation are concerned.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: El concepto de “intelectual” es difícil de definir y sin duda se debate constantemente. Sin embargo, es importante reflexionar sobre él a fin de comprender su significado y los problemas que implica. Sea como fuere, a un Estado autoritario “moderno” se le supone una única ideología que tiene que difundirse por medio de una propaganda bien organizada, proceso en el que los intelectuales desempeñan un papel significativo. El “Nuevo Estado” de Salazar encaja en esta categoría y sin duda el conocimiento acerca de sus “intelectuales” es fundamental. En este artículo, el objetivo es proporcionar algunos ejemplos interesantes de “intelectuales” o de simples “funcionarios políticos” con inclinación intelectual a fin de indicar el sentido y complejidad de un estudio con una dimensión distinta sobre este asunto. A este fin han sido seleccionadas tres personalidades responsables de la actividad ideológica y cultural de gran relieve en el Estado de Salazar: António Ferro, João Ameal y Costa Brochado. Palabras clave: Estado Novo; Authotitarianism; Salazar, António de Oliveira; Intellectuals; Ferro, António; Brochado, Idalino da Costa; Ameal, João. ABSTRACT: The concept of the “intellectual” is difficult to define and undoubtedly constantly debated. It is nevertheless important to reflect on it in order to understand its meaning and the problems involved with it. Be that as it may, a “modern” authoritarian State presumes a single ideology which has to be diffused by means of well-organised propaganda, in which process “intellectuals” play a significant role. Salazar’s “New State” fits this category and, undoubtedly, knowledge about its “intellectuals” is fundamental. The objective in this article is to provide some interesting examples of “intellectuals” or simple “political functionar- ies” with an intellectual bent so as to indicate the sense and complexity of a study of a

    Full Text Available El reformismo de Marcelo Caetano, ensayado durante sus años de gobierno, resultó insuficiente para responder a los desafíos de la sociedad portuguesa, que acabaron por desembocar en la ruptura del 25 de Abril. Las razones del fracaso de la reforma marcelista se han atribuido a menudo a las dificultades del Presidente del Consejo para maniobrar, prácticamente sin margen y sin tiempo, entre poderosas presiones políticas contrapuestas. Sin embargo, el análisis de su pensamiento político, expreso en las manifestaciones realizadas durante los años de su Gobierno, revelan que en lo sustancial su ideario nunca se salió de los parámetros ideológicos y políticos del Estado Novo. Su reformismo no iba más allá de un intento honesto de relegitimar el régimen mediante un proceso de efectiva institucionalización de la actividad política, de dinamización representativa, de modernización socioeconómica y de aperturismo liberalizador.The reformist policy of Marcelo Caetano was incapable of overcoming the challenges of Portuguese society that eventually led to the outbreak of 25th April. The reasons for this failure have been often linked to the President’s difficulties to implement changes in the midst of powerful and opposed political pressures. Nevertheless, the analysis of his political thought expressed in the speeches and statements produced during his government period, shows that essentially marcelist’s ideas never exceeded the «Estado Novo» ideological framework. So, his reforming policy never went beyond an honest attempt to renew the regime throughout a more institutionalised and representative political practice, a deeper tolerance of public liberties and an economic and social modernization. All that could at the ouset raise popular hopes, but it could never flow into democracy.

    In France, it was only recently that cases related to high radon concentrations in dwellings received substantial publicity. This irruption of radon as a public health issue came with the general progress of scientific knowledge and the availability of a research capacity in France able to develop expertise. We are interested here in the legal implications of issues that arise from the lag between the activity of expertsand the regulatory activity in the domain of radon. We use the term expertise very broadly, to cover the practical application of research findings, the relation of the researchers with the community, and finally the acts by which experts provide their knowledge to the community. We first examine the course by which science developed the radon issue and the way they organized to move from research to expertise; here we try to characterize the various needs for radon expertise. We then discuss the legal difficulties associated with radon expertise.

  4. Digital Identity - The Legal Person?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sullivan, Clare

    This paper examines the concept of digital identity which the author asserts is now evident in the United Kingdom as a consequence of the Identity Cards Act (UK) 2006 and the National Identity Scheme it establishes. The nature and functions of the concept, particularly the set of information which constitutes an individual’s transactional identity, are examined. The paper then considers the central question of who, or what, is the legal person in a transaction i.e. who or what enters into legal relations. The analysis presents some intriguing results which were almost certainly not envisaged by the legislature. The implications extend beyond the United Kingdom to similar schemes in other jurisdictions, and to countries, like Australia, which may implement such a scheme.

Healthcare ethics committees have also recently been the subject of significant public policy attention. Disturbingly, Bobby Schindler and others have described ethics committees as "death panels." But most of the recent attention has been positive. Over the past several months, legislatures and courts have expanded the use of ethics committees and clarified their roles concerning both end-of-life treatment and other issues. These developments are usefully grouped into the following eight categories: 1. Existence and availability. 2. Membership and composition. 3. Operating procedures. 4. Advisory roles. 5. Decision-making and gate-keeping roles. 6. Confidentiality. 7. Immunity. 8. Litigation and court cases.

  7. Mediation in Legal English Teaching

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chovancová Barbora

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Mediation is a language activity that has been unjustly neglected when preparing law students for their future professional careers. When trained in a professional context, students need to develop and improve complex communicative skills. These include not only the traditional language skills such as reading, writing, listening and speaking, but also more advanced skills such as summarizing, providing definitions, changing registers etc. All these are involved in the students’ acquisition of ‘soft skills’ that are particularly important for students of law since much of their future work involves interpersonal lawyer-client interaction. This article argues that mediation is a crucial (though previously underestimated skill and that law-oriented ESP instruction should provide training aimed at developing this skill. Showing a practical application of this approach, the paper demonstrates that mediation can be successfully integrated in the legal English syllabus and make the learning of legal English more effective.

Sin embargo, se sabe que las predicciones efectuadas con el uso de modelos construidos empleando dicho método difieren de los resultados experimentales obtenidos a partir de ensayos de vibración en estructuras existentes. El área conocida en lengua inglesa como Model Updating, o Ajuste de Modelos, como se denomina en este documento, surgió como respuesta a dicha problemáticay apunta a efectuar correcciones paramétricas en los modelos de elementos finitos con el fin de lograr que las propiedades dinámicas analíticas se asemejen a sus contrapartes experimentales. El avance de esta disciplina durante los últimos veinte años ha sido vertiginoso; sin embargo, en el medio latinoamericano, y en particular en el colombiano, existe una difusión pobre de dicha temática. Este artículo presenta una revisión del estado del arte a la fecha de su publicación. Se espera que el presente trabajo motive la investigación en el campo del Ajuste de Modelos en centros diferentes a aquellos donde se ha concentrado hasta ahora el desarrollo de esta área y que a su vez provea información suficiente para que el sector industrial latinoamericano incluya dicha tecnología en sus prácticas.

  20. Genovo: De Novo Assembly for Metagenomes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Laserson, Jonathan; Jojic, Vladimir; Koller, Daphne

    Next-generation sequencing technologies produce a large number of noisy reads from the DNA in a sample. Metagenomics and population sequencing aim to recover the genomic sequences of the species in the sample, which could be of high diversity. Methods geared towards single sequence reconstruction are not sensitive enough when applied in this setting. We introduce a generative probabilistic model of read generation from environmental samples and present Genovo, a novel de novo sequence assembler that discovers likely sequence reconstructions under the model. A Chinese restaurant process prior accounts for the unknown number of genomes in the sample. Inference is made by applying a series of hill-climbing steps iteratively until convergence. We compare the performance of Genovo to three other short read assembly programs across one synthetic dataset and eight metagenomic datasets created using the 454 platform, the largest of which has 311k reads. Genovo's reconstructions cover more bases and recover more genes than the other methods, and yield a higher assembly score.

  1. De Novo Origin of Human Protein-Coding Genes

    Wu, Dong-Dong; Irwin, David M.; Zhang, Ya-Ping

    2011-01-01

    The de novo origin of a new protein-coding gene from non-coding DNA is considered to be a very rare occurrence in genomes. Here we identify 60 new protein-coding genes that originated de novo on the human lineage since divergence from the chimpanzee. The functionality of these genes is supported by both transcriptional and proteomic evidence. RNA–seq data indicate that these genes have their highest expression levels in the cerebral cortex and testes, which might suggest that these genes contribute to phenotypic traits that are unique to humans, such as improved cognitive ability. Our results are inconsistent with the traditional view that the de novo origin of new genes is very rare, thus there should be greater appreciation of the importance of the de novo origination of genes.

A Revisão Bibliográfica Sistemática realizada identificou a existência de 10 modelos compostos por diferentes atividades para a fase do pré-desenvolvimento. Estes modelos foram publicados entre 1988 e 2013 e buscam sistematizar o pré-desenvolvimento e orientar os gestores na condução da fase. Observou-se que, embora com nomenclaturas diferentes, atividades como identificação de oportunidades, seleção de oportunidades, geração de ideias, seleção de ideias, desenvolvimento de conceitos, seleção de conceitos e planejamento do projeto, são recorrentes em todos os modelos, concluindo-se, portanto, que estas são essenciais e devem estar presentes na fase de pré-desenvolvimento, independentemente do tipo de produto fabricado ou setor no qual a empresa atua. Também foram identificadas 57 diferentes técnicas, auxiliadas por diversas ferramentas que, segundo os autores, podem ser eficazes para a condução das atividades de pré-desenvolvimento.

    Full Text Available Pakistan came into being in 1947. It struggled a lot during its initial days. It did not come to consensus to make a constitution until 1956 but later on military regime intervened. It is a drawback of Pakistan that laws and the constitution are not made indeed for its people rather they are made for the selfish elite who come into the power time to time without the support of the people. An unelected person cannot make a law for the betterment of the people he always do things for his own interest. Purpose - To point out weaknesses and hindrances in the social legal transformation of Pakistan and to recommend changes and best possible ways to build a highly social legal transformed society. Design/methodology/approach - The treatise is made taking into account the qualitative approach by looking into the historical prospect of social legal issues of Pakistan and to come to a conclusion to draw a better picture if followed the suggested steps. Findings - The paper includes the review of the history and weaknesses in legal transformation and comprehensive suggested steps to be followed to overcome the weaknesses and deficiencies. Research limitations/implications - The paper is limited to the social and legal aspects of the transformation in Pakistan and does not go into the deep details of politics and culture. Practical implications - Suggested steps can be followed by the legislature to make amendments in laws and to make more suitable laws which is a necessity for the better social transformation of Pakistan. Originality/Value - The research is a good piece and has an importance in its field and may help a lot in the development of the country and the region specially and the world at large generally. Keywords: Islamic rulers of the sub-continent; British India and its laws; Constitution of Pakistan 1956,1962 and 1973.

    Whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing have facilitated the large-scale discovery of de novo variants in human disease. To date, most de novo discovery through next-generation sequencing focused on congenital heart disease and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). Currently, de novo variants are one of the most significant risk factors for NDDs with a substantial overlap of genes involved in more than one NDD. To facilitate better usage of published data, provide standardization of annotation, and improve accessibility, we created denovo-db (http://denovo-db.gs.washington.edu), a database for human de novo variants. As of July 2016, denovo-db contained 40 different studies and 32,991 de novo variants from 23,098 trios. Database features include basic variant information (chromosome location, change, type); detailed annotation at the transcript and protein levels; severity scores; frequency; validation status; and, most importantly, the phenotype of the individual with the variant. We included a feature on our browsable website to download any query result, including a downloadable file of the full database with additional variant details. denovo-db provides necessary information for researchers to compare their data to other individuals with the same phenotype and also to controls allowing for a better understanding of the biology of de novo variants and their contribution to disease. © The Author(s) 2016.

Esse novo modelo foi concebido e desenvolvido a partir do pressuposto de que a escolha do meio de locomoção se faz através da avaliação das utilidades intrínsecas das alternativas disponíveis e das utilidades atribuídas às quantias que se "desembolsam" em cada alternativa. A forma não convencional do modelo (não-compensatório e determinístico requereu a concepção e o desenvolvimento de um processo para a sua calibração: uma aplicação da técnica de maximização da verossimilhança. Esse processo foi aplicado a dados referentes a um grupo de 95 pessoas (50 funcionários da Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos-USP e 45 funcionários do DER-SP, Regional de Campinas. O resultado da calibração mostrou-se satisfatório, pois aproximadamente 85% das escolhas preditas pelo modelo calibrado coincidiram com as escolhas realizadas pelo grupo estudado.

    Abstract:

    There are two objectives in this paper: the first one is to present an alternative way to calibrate travel behaviour models with semi-compensatory structures; the second one is to analyse some preliminary results of a calibration exercise. This new model has been developed based upon the following assumption: the choice of transport mode is made on the basis of the assessment of the intrinsic utilities of available transport alternatives and the utilities attached to the amount of money needed to travel in each of these alternatives. The non-conventional structure of the model (non-compensatory and deterministic has required the conception and development of a calibration process: an application of the maximum likelihood estimation technique. This process has been applied to a data base which consisted

  11. The legal self: executive processes and legal theory.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hirstein, William; Sifferd, Katrina

    2011-03-01

    When laws or legal principles mention mental states such as intentions to form a contract, knowledge of risk, or purposely causing a death, what parts of the brain are they speaking about? We argue here that these principles are tacitly directed at our prefrontal executive processes. Our current best theories of consciousness portray it as a workspace in which executive processes operate, but what is important to the law is what is done with the workspace content rather than the content itself. This makes executive processes more important to the law than consciousness, since they are responsible for channelling conscious decision-making into intentions and actions, or inhibiting action. We provide a summary of the current state of our knowledge about executive processes, which consists primarily of information about which portions of the prefrontal lobes perform which executive processes. Then we describe several examples in which legal principles can be understood as tacitly singling out executive processes, including principles regarding defendants' intentions or plans to commit crimes and their awareness that certain facts are the case (for instance, that a gun is loaded), as well as excusatory principles which result in lesser responsibility for those who are juveniles, mentally ill, sleepwalking, hypnotized, or who suffer from psychopathy.

When compared with vial and syringe regimens, insulin pens offer a greater clinical efficacy, improved quality of life, and increased dosing accuracy, particularly at low doses. The portable and discreet nature of pen devices reduces the burden on the patient, facilitates adherence, and subsequently contributes to the improvement in glycemic control. NovoPen Echo® is one of the latest members of the NovoPen® family that has been specifically designed for the pediatric population and is the first to combine half-unit increment (=0.5 U of insulin dosing with a simple memory function. The half-unit increment dosing amendments and accurate injection of 0.5 U of insulin are particularly beneficial for children (and insulin-sensitive adults/elders, who often require small insulin doses. The memory function can be used to record the time and amount of the last dose, reducing the fear of double dosing or missing a dose. The memory function also provides parents with extra confidence and security that their child is taking insulin at the correct doses and times. NovoPen Echo is a lightweight, durable insulin delivery pen; it is available in two different colors, which may help to distinguish between different types of insulin, providing more confidence for both users and caregivers. Studies have demonstrated a high level of patient satisfaction, with 80% of users preferring NovoPen Echo to other pediatric insulin pens.

    Full Text Available In the last two decades, legal English has attracted increasing interest and awareness, especially because English is predominantly the language of international legal practice. Legal English must be seen in the overall context of English for Specific Purposes , as it shares the important elements of need analysis, syllabus design, course design, and materials selection and development which are common to all fields of work in ESP. As with other varieties of ESP, Legal English implies the definition of a specific language corpus, usages of various teaching strategies and emphasis on particular kinds of communication in a specific context.The article aims to highlight some aspects of teaching legal English by a non-native teacher who is not an expert in law. It particularly focuses attention on the development of basic communication skills and the use of lexical approaches in successful language acquisition in legal English.

Contemporary financial markets only trade electronic securities held in securities accounts. Securities law enhances adjustments to economic realities and not to legal principles. Discrepancies between economic realities and securities regulation should be resolved in order to find a balance between successfully functioning transactions of electronic securities and legal schemes which are based on transfers of physically existing assets, which include securities, as a result of the theory of incorporations, in certain legal regulations. This article is a theoretical and legal reflection on selected issues connected with the transfer of securities with reference to discrepancies between economic realities and legal regulations.

Os modelos analisados são o burocrático, a administração pública gerencial, o governo empreendedor e a governança pública. Recentemente, reformas administrativas vêm pregando a substituição progressiva do modelo burocrático weberiano por novos modelos de gestão e de relação do Estado com a sociedade. Este artigo mostra que os novos modelos compartilham características essenciais com o modelo tradicional burocrático e, portanto, não são modelos de ruptura. Também é argumentado que reformas da administração pública transformam-se facilmente em políticas simbólicas, e que políticos e burocratas tentam manipular a percepção do público em relação ao desempenho dos governos. Não são raros os esforços de reforma da administração pública que avançam mais em autopromoção e retórica do que em fatos concretos. Por último, são feitas sugestões para uma agenda de pesquisa àqueles interessados em temas de reformas da administração pública.This article is based on a bibliographical research both in classic and recently published textbooks and in scientific papers in the literature of public administration in Europe and the United States.

Ésto, que para ella, es la capacidad creativa de las nociones en psicoanálisis, es necesario para bordearse un objeto que no cesa de ofrecer resistencias e emprender una reflexión acerca de la especificidad de los modelos en psicoanálisis e del diálogo interdisciplinario. La autora cree que ta paradojalidad así como lo negativo delimitan una epistemología específica para el psicoanálisis, y cuando integrada en el ámbito universitario, la explicitación de sus modelos y del uso lógico que se hace de ellos puede realimentar ¡a propia reflexión con elementos que contribuyan a la especificidad de la metodología de la investigación.

    Full Text Available The paper addresses the problem of child labor and ways of protection from child labor abuse. Child labor is a negative social phenomenon that is widespread throughout the world, and also in Republic of Macedonia. International and national institutions and organizations are making serious efforts to eradicate this negative phenomenon, through the adoption of numerous international legal instruments (conventions, recommendations, declarations, etc.. Child labor as a phenomenon refers to the employment of children in any work that deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their ability of education, and that is socially, mentally, physically, or morally dangerous and harmful. All international organizations define this practice as exploitative and destructive to the development of the whole society. With international legal instruments of the UN, ILO, Council of Europe and the EU child labor is strictly prohibited. There are some important differences which exist between the many kinds of work that is done by children. Some of them are demanding and difficult, others are hazardous and morally reprehensible. Children are doing a very wide range of activities and tasks when they work.

    Callipo, C

    1976-01-01

    The Author takes up the subject of the report in order to carry out a comprehensive legal recognition of the mineral water regulations in Italy and emphasizes that in this field the results of scientific conclusions, or rather of the various scientific branches (medical hydrology, microbiology, chemics, hydrogeology, medical clinics, pharmacology, etc.) supply a cognitive support to the legislator and the substantial contents to the legal standards. He therefore illustrates the two main outlines of the rules, i.e. the hygienic sanitary one and the mineral one: such lay-out is subsequently related to the implementation of the Regions on one hand and to the enforcement of CEE-rules on the other. This has led to the fact that the hygienic-sanitary legislation was confirmed to the State while the mineral one was transferred to the Regions. After having shown up contrasts and expressed the necessity of clearness and uniformity of rules and criteria, the Author connects these requirements mainly with the implementation of hygienic-sanitary surveillance and consequently with the evaluation of the banal bacterical contents under the point of view of merit--i.e. the rules should include the probative results of science--as well as from a point of view of coordinated allotments of competence by the various organisms.

    Sexting is the sending or forwarding of sexually explicit photographs or videos of the sender or someone known to the sender via cell phone. It has become common practice among young people, as cell phones are being given to adolescents at ever younger ages. Youths often send messages without giving appropriate thought to the content of the images. In studies on the subject, rates of minors who have sent sexual images range from 4 to 25 percent, depending on the age of the youths surveyed, the content of the messages and other factors. Because transferring and viewing sexually explicit material when the subject is a minor can be considered child pornography, there can be serious legal consequences. Several states have enacted legislation to help differentiate between child pornography and sexting by minors. The trend reflected in statutes has been that minors involved in sexting without other exacerbating circumstances should be charged with a less serious offense. There is no clear national consensus on how sexting by minors is adjudicated, and therefore we compared several statutes. Case examples are used to illustrate the range of legal outcomes, from felony charges to no charges. Two sexting episodes that were followed by suicide are described. We also address the role of the forensic mental health professional.

    In the UK schools are required by law to protect students from bullying; the responsibility of teachers to govern such behaviour has been extended outside the school setting to include cyberbullying. In this investigation, cyberbullying in secondary education is explored from the student perspective using a qualitative method of enquiry. Reported awareness and understanding about the legal aspects of cyberbullying are investigated; consideration is given to legislation, cybercrime, children's rights, school sanctions and safeguarding responsibilities. A total of 197 male and female students aged between 11 and 14 years old participated. Despite the availability of information on guidelines and legislation at national, local, and school level, this does not appear to have reached ground level of the individual student. There is a considerable gap between what students should know and what they report to be aware of with regard to legal aspects of cyberbullying. To address concerns of keeping up with the pace of change in cyberbullying, a collaborative approach is required with young people and adults sharing expertise.

    The objective of this article is to: (1) evaluate the rationality and opportunity of this debate; (2) try to establish links with legal drugs; (3) evaluate the available data on the effect of legalization of a drug; and (4) propose an alternative drug police based on clear objectives to be reached; (5) describe how Sweden is dealing with the theme of drugs restriction as a social care. Methodologically the text constitutes in a summary of readings and elaborations of the author, placed to incite a discussion. It is concluded that four aspects need to be taken into consideration when a drug police of a country is analyzed, they are: (1) external factors influence the police: international agreements, health and social assistance police, individual rights, authority and autonomy of physicians and other professionals; (2) the objective established influence formal polices and its implementation; (3) the symbolic influence that excels the implementation. Influent people make declarations that strongly reach the legitimacy and adhesion to actions; (4) formal polices and their implementation receive direct influence to socially perceived damages by the drugs use, which could be independent of the real level of its use in a determined society.

  11. BITCOIN - BETWEEN LEGAL AND INFORMAL

    Full Text Available The proliferation of technology emphasized new forms of payment. During the last years, current literature highlighted the role of virtual currency, the channels of payment through digital coins and the importance of assimilation of such platforms. Bitcoin or BTC is known as a digital coin, issued for the first time in 2009 and based on a peer to peer system. The difference from other forms of payment is that BTC is not controlled by any institution or central authority. BTC transactions have grown rapidly, ”asking" for regulation measures or legal approval of governments. Although BTC has become very popular, the market is poor and unfortunately of no confidence. There is a lack of regulation which can determine a number of risks associated with criminal financing activities. However, the legal status of Bitcoin is present in many European countries like Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Switzerland or Turkey. Also, this type of currency has experienced a rapid evolution among coffee shops and restaurants.

  17. Biophysical characterization of a de novo elastin

    Greenland, Kelly Nicole

    Natural human elastin is found in tissue such as the lungs, arteries, and skin. This protein is formed at birth with no mechanism present to repair or supplement the initial quantity formed. As a result, the functionality and durability of elastin's elasticity is critically important. To date, the mechanics of this ability to stretch and recoil is not fully understood. This study utilizes de novo protein design to create a small library of simplistic versions of elastin-like proteins, demonstrate the elastin-like proteins, maintain elastin's functionality, and inquire into its structure using solution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Elastin is formed from cross-linked tropoelastin. Therefore, the first generation of designed proteins consisted of one protein that utilized homogony of interspecies tropoelastin by using three common domains, two hydrophobic and one cross-linking domains. Basic modifications were made to open the hydrophobic region and also to make the protein easier to purify and characterize. The designed protein maintained its functionality, self-aggregating as the temperature increased. Uniquely, the protein remained self-aggregated as the temperature returned below the critical transition temperature. Self-aggregation was additionally induced by increasing salt concentrations and by modifying the pH. The protein appeared to have little secondary structure when studied with solution NMR. These results fueled a second generation of designed elastin-like proteins. This generation contained variations designed to study the cross-linking domain, one specific hydrophobic domain, and the effect of the length of the elastin-like protein. The cross-linking domain in one variation has been significantly modified while the flanking hydrophobic domains have remained unchanged. This characterization of this protein will answer questions regarding the specificity of the homologous nature of the cross-linking domain of tropoelastin across species. A second

  18. The Legal Ethical Backbone of Conscientious Refusal.

    Munthe, Christian; Nielsen, Morten Ebbe Juul

    2017-01-01

    This article analyzes the idea of a legal right to conscientious refusal for healthcare professionals from a basic legal ethical standpoint, using refusal to perform tasks related to legal abortion (in cases of voluntary employment) as a case in point. The idea of a legal right to conscientious refusal is distinguished from ideas regarding moral rights or reasons related to conscientious refusal, and none of the latter are found to support the notion of a legal right. Reasons for allowing some sort of room for conscientious refusal for healthcare professionals based on the importance of cultural identity and the fostering of a critical atmosphere might provide some support, if no countervailing factors apply. One such factor is that a legal right to healthcare professionals' conscientious refusal must comply with basic legal ethical tenets regarding the rule of law and equal treatment, and this requirement is found to create serious problems for those wishing to defend the idea under consideration. We conclude that the notion of a legal right to conscientious refusal for any profession is either fundamentally incompatible with elementary legal ethical requirements, or implausible because it undermines the functioning of a related professional sector (healthcare) or even of society as a whole.

    Full Text Available The article highlights the formation process of the discursive space of the legal field. It is shown that the metalanguage is a key communication tool in the discursive space of the legal field and becomes a means of expressing the attitude to the realities of the legal sphere, the environment of operating their relationships. It is noted that the subject and subjectless discourses in the professional legal sphere reflect semantic relationships between the written and the said. It is stated that description of the meta-linguistic nature of legal discourse can complement the knowledge in the discursive space of the legal field.An equally important source for the formation of discursive space of the legal field are legal texts (legislative that are created by professional lawyers taking into consideration the peculiarities of the professional sphere.Thus, metalinguistic innovations of subjective and subjectless discourses in the language in general and in the language of law enforcement in particular, enhance the law enforcement activity promoting universal human values in the discursive space of the legal field.

  1. Attitudes towards drug legalization among drug users.

    Trevino, Roberto A; Richard, Alan J

    2002-01-01

    Research shows that support for legalization of drugs varies significantly among different sociodemographic and political groups. Yet there is little research examining the degree of support for legalization of drugs among drug users. This paper examines how frequency and type of drug use affect the support for legalization of drugs after adjusting for the effects of political affiliation and sociodemographic characteristics. A sample of 188 drug users and non-drug users were asked whether they would support the legalization of marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. Respondents reported their use of marijuana, crack, cocaine, heroin, speedball, and/or methamphetamines during the previous 30 days. Support for legalization of drugs was analyzed by estimating three separate logistic regressions. The results showed that the support for the legalization of drugs depended on the definition of "drug user" and the type of drug. In general, however, the results showed that marijuana users were more likely to support legalizing marijuana, but they were less likely to support the legalization of cocaine and heroin. On the other hand, users of crack, cocaine, heroin, speedball, and/or methamphetamines were more likely to support legalizing all drugs including cocaine and heroin.

    2015-11-01

    De novo sequencing software has been widely used in proteomics to sequence new peptides from tandem mass spectrometry data. This study presents a new software tool, Novor, to greatly improve both the speed and accuracy of today's peptide de novo sequencing analyses. To improve the accuracy, Novor's scoring functions are based on two large decision trees built from a peptide spectral library with more than 300,000 spectra with machine learning. Important knowledge about peptide fragmentation is extracted automatically from the library and incorporated into the scoring functions. The decision tree model also enables efficient score calculation and contributes to the speed improvement. To further improve the speed, a two-stage algorithmic approach, namely dynamic programming and refinement, is used. The software program was also carefully optimized. On the testing datasets, Novor sequenced 7%-37% more correct residues than the state-of-the-art de novo sequencing tool, PEAKS, while being an order of magnitude faster. Novor can de novo sequence more than 300 MS/MS spectra per second on a laptop computer. The speed surpasses the acquisition speed of today's mass spectrometer and, therefore, opens a new possibility to de novo sequence in real time while the spectrometer is acquiring the spectral data.

    Whole-exome sequencing (WES) and de novo variant detection have proven a powerful approach to gene discovery in complex neurodevelopmental disorders. We have completed WES of 325 Tourette disorder trios from the Tourette International Collaborative Genetics cohort and a replication sample of 186 trios from the Tourette Syndrome Association International Consortium on Genetics (511 total). We observe strong and consistent evidence for the contribution of de novo likely gene-disrupting (LGD) variants (rate ratio [RR] 2.32, p = 0.002). Additionally, de novo damaging variants (LGD and probably damaging missense) are overrepresented in probands (RR 1.37, p = 0.003). We identify four likely risk genes with multiple de novo damaging variants in unrelated probands: WWC1 (WW and C2 domain containing 1), CELSR3 (Cadherin EGF LAG seven-pass G-type receptor 3), NIPBL (Nipped-B-like), and FN1 (fibronectin 1). Overall, we estimate that de novo damaging variants in approximately 400 genes contribute risk in 12% of clinical cases. VIDEO ABSTRACT. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Esse crescimento do número de áreas de comércio é chamado de Novo Regionalismo Asiático. Este artigo apresenta essa nova onda de integração econômica na região, focalizando o comércio, cujas características são: a participação em negociações comerciais de países que antes não eram membros de áreas preferenciais de comércio; os países serem membros de mais de um acordo de comércio regional; muitos dos acordos em negociação cruzarem regiões do mundo e muitos dos novos acordos serem bilaterais. São apresentados os conceitos e a classificação das diferentes formas de integração econômica, os benefícios e as limitações que os acordos preferenciais de comércio trazem às economias; em seguida, são analisadas as áreas de integração econômica existentes e as que estão em processo de negociação na região do Pacífico Asiático. São examinadas, também, as principais causas do Novo Regionalismo Asiático: além da crise asiática, a perda da credibilidade de organismos regionais e do sistema multilateral de comércio, a ampliação das áreas preferenciais de comércio em outras regiões do mundo e a competição de natureza econômica e política entre os países da região. Conclui-se que, se efetivamente houver a integração entre as economias, haverá um novo ciclo de crescimento da economia asiática, em particular do Leste e do Sudeste Asiáticos, prosseguindo com o modelo de crescimento liderado pelas exportações.Preferential trade agreements have been grown in Asia Pacific since 1998, hence after this region faced financial crisis.

    The design of enzyme-like catalysts tests our understanding of sequence-to-structure/function relationships in proteins. Here we install hydrolytic activity predictably into a completely de novo and thermostable α-helical barrel, which comprises seven helices arranged around an accessible channel. We show that the lumen of the barrel accepts 21 mutations to functional polar residues. The resulting variant, which has cysteine-histidine-glutamic acid triads on each helix, hydrolyses p-nitrophenyl acetate with catalytic efficiencies that match the most-efficient redesigned hydrolases based on natural protein scaffolds. This is the first report of a functional catalytic triad engineered into a de novo protein framework. The flexibility of our system also allows the facile incorporation of unnatural side chains to improve activity and probe the catalytic mechanism. Such a predictable and robust construction of truly de novo biocatalysts holds promise for applications in chemical and biochemical synthesis.

    2015-11-01

    The discovery of genetic variation and the assembly of genome sequences are both inextricably linked to advances in DNA-sequencing technology. Short-read massively parallel sequencing has revolutionized our ability to discover genetic variation but is insufficient to generate high-quality genome assemblies or resolve most structural variation. Full resolution of variation is only guaranteed by complete de novo assembly of a genome. Here, we review approaches to genome assembly, the nature of gaps or missing sequences, and biases in the assembly process. We describe the challenges of generating a complete de novo genome assembly using current technologies and the impact that being able to perfectly sequence the genome would have on understanding human disease and evolution. Finally, we summarize recent technological advances that improve both contiguity and accuracy and emphasize the importance of complete de novo assembly as opposed to read mapping as the primary means to understanding the full range of human genetic variation.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Daniel Bonilla

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The production, exchange and use of legal knowledge are subject to a political economy. These processes are governed by a series of rules and principles that determine the conditions allowing the creation, commerce and consumption of legal theories, doctrines and practices. Consequently, this political economy is not neutral; it constructs a specific subject of knowledge that acts within a particular space and time. Thus, this paper has two objectives. Firstly, it seeks to describe and analyze the political economy model that dominates our legal and political imagination. As such, it aims at examining the conceptual structure of what I call the free market of legal ideas model. Secondly, this paper aims at describing and analyzing an alternative model of political economy that would best ex- plain the real dynamics that regulate the generation, exchange, and use of legal knowledge. To achieve this objective, the paper highlights the conceptual structures that form what I call the colonial model of the production of legal knowledge. Therefore, the paper seeks to specify the subject of legal knowledge production established by these two models, as well as their concepts of time and space. Likewise, it seeks to specify the precise rules and principles that determine the ways in which these models imagine the production, exchange, and use of legal knowledge.

  6. The Theory of the Legal State

    1981-03-01

    Full Text Available In this article, which has not been published before, the late Prof. du Plessis lays bare the philosophical roots of the liberal-democratic state, or the legal state, as he preferred to call it. After a recapitulative version of the theory of the legal state, het indicates the origin of this form in Greek philosophy and in Medieval thought. The stress, however, is on the Modem Era, in which he distinuishes two main periods in the development of the theory of the legal state:the jusnaturalistic period and thepositivistic or formal period.He argues that positivism has destroyed the original ideal o f individual freedom in facts by regarding justice as a purely formal matter susceptible to any content. All guarantees for individual freedom which rested on a universal normative system fe ll away. The state defines its own competence and limits itself to legal forms in all its activities. The legal state thus merely becomes the state, any state as determined by fixed rules o f its own making to which it binds itselfin all its functioning. Law sinks to a mere form in which the juristic personality of the state manifests its supremacy, and from this there is only one step to the concept that the state is identical with law, so that any state necessarily is a legal state, and any state action which is formally correct, is legal. The article concludes with a brief representation o f the author’s own political and legal vision.

    Liou, James J. H.; Tzeng, Gwo-Hshiung

    Human resource management (HRM) is an important issue for today’s competitive airline marketing. In this paper, we discuss a multi-objective model designed from the De Novo perspective to help airlines optimize their maintenance manpower portfolio. The effectiveness of the model and solution algorithm is demonstrated in an empirical study of the optimization of the human resources needed for airline line maintenance. Both De Novo and traditional multiple objective programming (MOP) methods are analyzed. A comparison of the results with those of traditional MOP indicates that the proposed model and solution algorithm does provide better performance and an improved human resource portfolio.

    We propose an analysis of the codified Law of France as a structured system. Fifty two legal codes are selected on the basis of explicit legal criteria and considered as vertices with their mutual quotations forming the edges in a network which properties are analyzed relying on graph theory. We find that a group of 10 codes are simultaneously the most citing and the most cited by other codes, and are also strongly connected together so forming a "rich club" sub-graph. Three other code communities are also found that somewhat partition the legal field is distinct thematic sub-domains. The legal interpretation of this partition is opening new untraditional lines of research. We also conjecture that many legal systems are forming such new kind of networks that share some properties in common with small worlds but are far denser. We propose to call "concentrated world".

With this Action Plan a sector specific approach of legal and linguistic harmonization will start. On of the official aims will be the preparation of a common frame of reference, providing a pan-European terminology and rules. This contribution will reflect the need of a better and more coherent legal language use on a European Union level and describe a more concept-based approach of linguistic legal integration.

    Traditionally, and by law, new urban areas in Denmark are regulated and planned through legally binding local plans. Recently a tendency has occurred: The municipalities make the legally binding local plans quite open for future adjustment, and they are using a substantial amount of ‘empowerment...... provisions’ which empower the municipalities to later ruling. This way of making plans postpones the actual regulation of an area (i.e. the planning permission) making it an individual ruling for instance at the application of building permits. Case studies show examples of this way of regulating an area......, which seem to be beyond the scope of the Danish Planning Act. This paper deals with this problem through case studies and a legal analysis of present law. If the combination of the legally binding local plan and subsequent added requirements is misused, it will weaken the legal rights of the citizens...

    2015-04-01

    Brain death, or death determined by neurologic criteria, has been legally adopted in all U.S. states for decades. Despite its long-established history, a lack of clear understanding has led to disputes requiring a legal forum for resolution. Recently, physicians and hospitals across the country have been impacted by a growing number of disputes about brain death. The authors offer clinicians a historical perspective on the evolution of brain death as a legal cause of death in the United States. They then review the more common legal categories of disputes encountered, including representative court cases for each. This overview provides physicians with a general legal perspective on brain death so they may better appreciate the pertinent issues if and when later confronted.

    Full Text Available El comportamiento de componentes de máquinas y de materiales necesita ser optimizado para reducir los costos de operación en las plantas industriales. Este hecho ha impulsado la Tribología, un área relacionada con el estudio de la fricción, la lubricación y el desgaste. Uno de los principales objetivos de esta área del conocimiento es elaborar modelos matemáticos para expresar la variación del desgaste durante el contacto de superficies en movimiento, con el fin de predecir la vida útil de los elementos de máquinas. El modelo de Archard para desgaste por deslizamiento en seco, formulado en 1953, es un modelo clásico que plantea una variación del desgaste inversamente proporcional a la dureza del material y directamente proporcional a la carga aplicada. En el presente trabajo, se ha utilizado el método de modelamiento de problemas físicos, propuesto por Asbhy, para analizar los modelos propuestos por Archard (Modelo de contactos múltiples en superficies rugosas y modelo de desgaste mecánico. Con base en él se ha podido realizar un análisis profundo a dichos modelos, mostrando un panorama más amplio del modelo de Archard; se discuten aspectos no mostrados en los textos y artículos de tribología, donde el tratamiento dado a este modelo resulta ser superficial, desconociendo las limitaciones y la perspectiva que tuvo Archard sobre los aspectos que deberían considerarse en un modelo de desgaste.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho focaliza a transformação organizacional sob o prisma da educação continuada corporativa, de um novo estilo de gestão e de uma metodologia para implementação de mudança organizacional. Também se discutem conceitos e teorias de educação continuada e de estilo de gestão, bem como a metodologia proposta. O argumento central defende a premissa de que a transformação organizacional ocorre a partir da integração da educação continuada corporativa com um novo estilo de gestão e que esse processo se implementa por meio de uma metodologia adequada às singularidades desse tipo de mudança. Com o propósito de oferecer sustentação para esse argumento, discute-se uma pesquisa sobre educação continuada realizada em uma empresa pública, bem como as recomendações que ela ensejou para o processo de mudança dessa instituição. Das recomendações, infere-se que o processo de transformação organizacional é sistêmico em sua essência, que há um processo de aprendizagem sobre mudança - que não decorre do treinamento convencional - e que a transformação é permanente. Cada etapa requer, porém, um período de tempo para se incorporar à cultura da organização. Também se conclui que a transformação pode ocorrer por meio de pessoas ou de processos e que a combinação de ambas as formas pode ser uma estratégia necessária para superar a letargia que a organização burocrática impõe às pessoas. O trabalho finaliza com a apresentação de uma proposta para se levar à prática a transformação organizacional, modelo que se estrutura sobre o tripé da educação continuada corporativa, de um novo estilo de gestão e de uma metodologia adequada para a implementação desse tipo singular de mudança.

Criminal Legal Aid in China appeared relatively recently, and in the last years of its operation was marked by a number of achievements and some problems. Legal assistance in criminal cases is an integral part of the institute of legal aid in China and plays an invalu-able role in ensuring due process, maintaining the balance between prosecution and de-fense, as well as in guaranteeing human rights. This study contains a general description of the current state of criminal legal aid in China, highlights inherent problems of this institu-tion and describes prospects of its development. This work is based on the Criminal Proce-dure Code of the PRC in version of 2013 year, and provides analysis of the Russian and Chi-nese special literature, Chinese law and practice, as well as the official Chinese statistics. The scope of legal assistance in criminal cases is extremely narrow, the funding is not enough, and the quality leaves much to be desired. These and other shortcomings already have become obstacles to the development of the Chinese criminal procedure law. Despite of a number of changes to the legal regulation of the institute in the 2013 edition of the PRC Criminal Procedure Code, a number of issues remained unresolved.Conclusions. The existing difficulties can be overcame by expanding the scope of legal aid, increase in funding and introduction of public defenders. To increase funding in the budgets proposed to establish minimum public funding of legal aid, to attract non-governmental and international funding, to strengthen control and to ensure openness and transparency of spending. To improve the quality of legal aid PRC government should rise up compensations for lawyers, introduce the institution of public

    Full Text Available The aim of the essay is to outline the possible relations between, on one hand, the main normative models of society in Western political thought and on the other hand the ways migration has been addressed in theoretical terms. First, we look at the complex and contradictory connections between migration and models of society in Plato and Aristotle. Secondly, we examine how the relationship between citizenship and migration has been understood within the framework of individualism and contract theory (foremost in Hobbes, Locke and Kant. In section three, the theme is illustrated from the perspective of some of today’s normative political theories (neo-utilitarism, communitarism, neo-republicanism, constitutionalism centred on fundamental rights. Here some critical arguments in favour of residence-based citizenship entitlement and the right to migrate are discussed.

    Este ensayo se propone delinear las relaciones que pueden darse entre algunos de los principales modelos normativos de sociedad que es posible encontrar en el pensamiento político occidental y las distintas maneras en que son afrontados, en perspectiva teórica, los fenómenos migratorios. En la primera parte, el ensayo se detiene sobre las complejas y contradictorias relaciones que existen entre modelos de sociedad y migraciones en Platón y Aristóteles, mientras que en la parte central, la atención se centra en el planteamiento individualista y contractualista de la relación entre ciudadanía y migraciones (Hobbes, Locke y Kant, en par ticular. Finalmente, se toma en consideración la perspectiva que aportan algunas teorías normativas contemporáneas (neo-utilitarismo, comunitarismo, neo-republicanismo y constitucionalismo de los derechos fundamentales y se presentan, de forma crítica, algunos argumentos a favor de la ciudadanía por residencia y del derecho a migrar.

  2. Direct Visualization of De novo Lipogenesis in Single Living Cells

    2014-10-01

    Increased de novo lipogenesis is being increasingly recognized as a hallmark of cancer. Despite recent advances in fluorescence microscopy, autoradiography and mass spectrometry, direct observation of de novo lipogenesis in living systems remains to be challenging. Here, by coupling stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy with isotope labeled glucose, we were able to trace the dynamic metabolism of glucose in single living cells with high spatial-temporal resolution. As the first direct visualization, we observed that glucose was largely utilized for lipid synthesis in pancreatic cancer cells, which occurs at a much lower rate in immortalized normal pancreatic epithelial cells. By inhibition of glycolysis and fatty acid synthase (FAS), the key enzyme for fatty acid synthesis, we confirmed the deuterium labeled lipids in cancer cells were from de novo lipid synthesis. Interestingly, we also found that prostate cancer cells exhibit relatively lower level of de novo lipogenesis, but higher fatty acid uptake compared to pancreatic cancer cells. Together, our results demonstrate a valuable tool to study dynamic lipid metabolism in cancer and other disorders.

    Full Text Available A metodologia desenvolvida pelo Minnesota Innovation Research Program para avaliação dos processos de inovação, denominada Minnesota Innovation Survey (MIS serviu de base para a proposição de um modelo de análise de ambiente propício ao desenvolvimento de inovações. A necessidade da proposição de um novo modelo surgiu a partir da observação dos resultados de pesquisas que utilizaram a mesma metodologia, em que questões e dimensões se apresentavam altamente correlacionadas, gerando redundância de medição de construtos e pouca precisão nos resultados. Com isso buscou-se, por meio de embasamento teórico e estatística multivariada, reduzir o número de construtos afins no intuito de evitar a multicolinearidade e os resultados dúbios. A metodologia utilizada para o desenvolvimento do modelo proposto caracteriza-se como descritiva com método quantitativo. Foram aplicados questionários da metodologia MIS a 349 empregados de uma empresa metal mecânica. A aplicação do modelo original obedeceu a todos os passos prescritos, mostrando a aderência por meio de modelagem de equações estruturais. Como resultado verificou-se que a redução de dados proveniente dos testes estatísticos impactou significantes alterações na metodologia de base, caracterizando o surgimento de uma nova metodologia de análise pela diminuição de 70% dos dados multivariados. Conclui-se que a nova metodologia, apesar de eliminar 65 questões do instrumento de coleta de dados, não reduz seu poder de explicação e eficácia quanto às relações dos ambientes organizacionais com os resultados da inovação. Em termos de execução de pesquisa, o novo modelo facilita a coleta de dados, minimiza a dispersão do respondente no momento do preenchimento do questionário, aumentando a confiabilidade dos dados, fornece informações acuradas sobre o ambiente inovador e garante robustez de análise. Empresas podem beneficiar-se desse instrumento de pesquisa

  12. Michel Troper and french legal realism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ivan Glučina

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available The name of Michel Troper has become an inevitable reference in constitutional law and legal theory textbooks. This author kick-started his academic career with a thesis on a subject of separation of powers, thus prolonging the tradition of numerous French legal scholars, namely, that of providing contemporary discernment of French classical constitutional doctrines. Charles Eisenmann innovative views on the necessity of displacing attention from the theories and to the process of emergence, forms and functioning of those theories have had a decisive influence on Troper's scientific development. His Nanterre period is when general legal theory becomes of his primary interest. In the same manner as his mentor before him, Troper perceives Kelsen's theoretical paradigm as a starting point and engages in a polemical dialogue with the ideas of the Viennese jurist, deciding to push his somewhat rudimentary theory of interpretation of law to its extreme consequences. Affiliating his theoretical enterprise to movements and schools of thought such as American, Scandinavian and, primarily, Italian legal realism, Troper elaborates his own theory of interpretation of law ( TRI which will promptly become notorious for its alleged radicality. In the subsequent period of his career, Troper introduces the theory of legal constraints ( TCJ, destined to enable him to preserve his loyalty to positivist epistemology while striving to amend the radicality of the TRI by mobilising the concept of a specific causality supposedly inherent both to the legal system and the legal agents' mindset.

  13. Multiculturalism and legal plurality in Australia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Justin Dabner

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available The great multicultural experiment that is Australia has engendered a reconsideration of core values. Even the traditionally conservative legal system has not been immune. While the law remains anchored in its British Christian common-law traditions, the influence of other cultures and beliefs are emerging. Taking the term multiculturalism to encompass all cultures, including indigenous peoples as well as new comers, two instances of this are the partial accommodation of Indigenous customary law and a debate over the accommodation of Islamic law principles. The adoption of “foreign” legal concepts poses a dilemma for a liberal democratic society. On one hand, such a society might be expected to embrace wholesale legal plurality. However, there may be some foreign legal principles that are resisted on the basis that they are unacceptable to a free and equal society. The challenge is how to acknowledge the customary and religious laws of minorities whilst establishing one legal framework that applies to all, equally, and without discrimination and protects vulnerable parties. This article explores the implications for the legal system of a multicultural Australia. Taking the instances of Indigenous and Islamic law, it will be observed that legal plurality exists in Australia but largely in the shadows where the vulnerable of society lack protection. It proposes an institutional response that might help shine a light on these shadows.

    Full Text Available A transferência de conhecimentos (TC entre projetos de desenvolvimento de produtos é um processo composto por diversas etapas. Na literatura, há vários trabalhos que apresentam essas etapas e observa-se heterogeneidade nas nomenclaturas e na organização das mesmas. Além disso, existem várias linhas de pesquisa que têm estudado a TC com diferentes propostas para a interpretação desse processo. Em razão disso, este artigo apresenta uma comparação de nove modelos de TC apresentados por autores de diferentes linhas de pesquisas que compõem dois enfoques diferentes: a dinâmica e interação de equipes (enfoque emergente e a gestão e organização do conhecimento (enfoque de engenharia. Como resultado dessas análises comparativas, propõe-se um novo modelo de TC que apresenta uma reorganização das ideias discutidas na literatura e uma integração das diferentes propostas existentes, de maneira a se obter um modelo completo e consistente. O trabalho também ressalta as contribuições das diversas linhas de pesquisas da TC e as principais diferenças entre elas.

  17. A sense of self-suspicion: global legal pluralism and the claim to legal authority

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mariano Croce

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Legal pluralism has become common currency in many contemporary debates on law and globalization. Its main claim is that a form of global legal pluralism represents both the most accurate description of law in times of globalization and the best normative option. On the descriptive level, global legal pluralism is considered more reliable than state-based accounts. On the normative level, global legal pluralism is understood as a possibility to open up the legal realm to previously unheard voices. This article assesses these claims against the background of classic legal-pluralist scholarship. After reconstructing the emergence of global legal pluralism and then examining its epistemic and normative versions, the last two sections identify the shortcoming of this approach by underlining the absence of what the authors call ‘a sense of self-suspicion’ in drawing the map of legalities in the global sphere. The main argument put forward is that global legal pluralism is oblivious of a few key insights offered by the founding fathers of classic legal pluralism.

    2008-07-01

    Health-care safety management has recently been highlighted for patient safety. However, specialist-based risks in clinical settings have hardly been discussed in Japan so far. A review of dermatological legal claims may delineate these risks. This study examined court precedents from the databases "Courts in Japan" and LEX/DB. Thirty-four dermatology-related civil cases were found from 1968-2006. Of the 34 cases, 32 (94%) were judged and two (6%) were retried. Of these 32 cases, 11 (34%) were appealed to higher courts. Among the 34 litigations, the defendants of eight (23%) were dermatology specialists, 20 (59%) were non-dermatologists and six (18%) of unknown specialty. The defendants' negligence was determined at either level in court in 25 of the 34 cases. The negligence in these 25 cases was categorized into five groups: (i) delayed diagnosis (none); (ii) complication during diagnosis procedure (one, 4%); (iii) inappropriate treatment (nine, 36%); (iv) complication during treatment procedure (10, 40%); and (v) insufficient informed consent (five, 20%). The present study may help to improve strategies for health-care safety management in the dermatological field in Japan.

  19. Public Claims: A Legal Evaluation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tamer Budak

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available In order for a claim to exist, the host there has to be two parties. In case of public claims one of the parties is the state, special provincial administration and municipalities; while the debtor consists of the natural and legal persons. The definition of public claims is provided by The Procedure Law of Collection of Public Claims. One claims, the quality of the public claims not cause any, may be excluded from the scope of Law No. 6183. All the claims of public administration are not public claims. However, any private claim can have the security of a public claim. For this reason the criteria used to define a public claim differ. Arrangements, which can render a public claim a privileged claim, exist in the relevant Code. The aim of this study is to define the concept of public claim expressed in the relevant code and to determine the conditions under which a claim not stated in the Code can be considered a public claim in the light of court decisions.

  20. DRONE OPERATORS – LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrei-Alexandru STOICA

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Drones or unmanned or remote vehicles represent a new generation of devices that were designed to help mankind achieve better results in areas that were proven to hazardous. By developing drones, new areas of economic activities have been unlocked for better exploitation, but at the same time, the lack of a proper legal system to back-up the new technology allowed a new wave of gray-lined uses of drones that must be tackled. As the Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institute1 explains in an interview in 2012 that “a revolutionary technology is a game-changing technology on a historic level. It is technology like gunpowder, or the steam engine, or the atomic bomb”. With this in mind, drones mark the revolution to carry out strikes from thousands of kilometers away, while also ensuring a permanent eye in the sky for both military and also law enforcement operations. The aforementioned facts are just small percentages of what a drone is truly capable of and its full potential will only be unlocked once artificial intelligence will become an integral part of robotics.

  1. Psychopathy: Legal and neuroscientific aspects

    Joaquin Ortega-Escobar

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Psychopathy is characterised by emotional disturbances that affect interpersonal behaviour and decision-making. The objective of this paper is to review the most recent contributions to the field of neuroscience of psychopathy and the implications that this disorder has on the criminal legal field. In regards to this last aspect, we evaluate the issue of psychopaths’ accountability and the incidence of psychopathy in many other penal institutions. In terms of the contributions of neuroscience, we will focus on the orbitofrontal (ofPFC and ventromedial (vmPFC regions of the frontal lobes and on the amygdala. Data spanning from the nineteenth century to the present indicate that damage to the ofPFC and vmPFC is the basis of behaviours that have been referred to as pseudopsychopathic. The earlier during brain development the damage occurs, the more likely these behaviours will resemble those of psychopaths. The damage to the amygdala is rather related to impairments in the ability to distinguish facial expressions of fear and the capacity to feel emotions. Damage to ofPFC, vmPFC, and amygdala are highly relevant to the expression of pseudopsychopathic behaviours.

  2. Legal Inheritance in the Republic of Kosovo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dr.Sc. Hamdi Podvorica

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available Legal inheritance is one of the most important institutions of inheritance law which regulates the process of legal transition of property of the decedent to one or several heirs. The establish-ment of the legal framework has brought about new reforms to the Inheritance Law. This has enabled the enrichment and functio-ning of the law. A particularly important step was taken towards regulation of legal procedures regarding to how courts, other or-gans and other persons should act regarding inheritance issues. Concretization of the legal authorizations of bodies authorized to enforce the procedure of processing hereditary property has estab-lished the legal basis for realization of the iso jure principle, accor-ding to which, at the moment of death of the person, the heirs gain the right of inheritance and the hereditary property is never left without a titleholder. This is a great advantage that we have noted in undertaking this analysis of the norms in this work, because leaving hereditary property for a longer period of time without a titleholder would render the property vulnerable to des-truction, theft and extermination. The goal of this paper is to avoid focusing only on finding the positive sides of the normative regulation of the legal inheritance process, but also in finding practical deficiencies that are weighing down at the moment on this important process in Kosovo, and in proposing measures for overcoming them. The dark side of the legal inheritance process is linked to the inefficiency of courts and the still fragile legal system in Kosovo. By implementing empirical methods, we have come to the con-clusion that the low number of judges in proportion with the huge number of cases has become a key liability for practical implemen-tation of the principle of initiating the legal procedure ex officio. The failure in enforcing this principle and initiating the procedu-res for processing of hereditary property by courts, even though they

    Full Text Available There is no idea, business or company, private or public control, which does not require an appropriate legal strategy to be implemented as efficiently as possible. Therefore, there is no way actually know the areas of law that are directly related to the business organization, without analysis of the planning logic and implementation of ideas generally used by companies. More than that, the combination of modeling and business planning is essential, with appropriate legal and related strategic planning of business objectives.

    Full Text Available Resumo O artigo descreve os resultados de um estudo com métodos mistos nos serviços de aborto legal no país. Foram avaliados 68 serviços, em duas etapas. Na primeira, censitária, um questionário eletrônico com perguntas sobre organização dos serviços de aborto legal foi enviado a todas as instituições. A segunda, amostral e presencial, foi realizada em 5 serviços de referência, um para cada região do país, com aplicação de formulário para coletar dados das mulheres e do aborto nos arquivos de prontuários, além de 82 entrevistas com profissionais de saúde. Dos serviços, 37 informaram que realizam aborto legal e em 7 estados não estavam ativos. Boletim de ocorrência, laudo pericial e alvará judicial foram solicitados por 14%, 8% e 8% dos serviços, respectivamente. As mulheres que abortaram tinham predominantemente entre 15-29 anos, e eram solteiras e católicas. O aborto foi por estupro, até 14 semanas, com emprego da aspiração manual intrauterina. Para os profissionais, as principais dificuldades no funcionamento dos serviços são a pequena disponibilidade de médicos para o aborto e a capacitação escassa da equipe. Os dados mostram que ainda há distanciamento entre a previsão legal e a realidade dos serviços. A implementação de novos serviços e o fortalecimento dos existentes são ações necessárias.

    In today's increasingly polarized political climate, science is becoming more politicized, which in turn leads to scientists facing an increased involvement in legal discussion about their work, their correspondence, and their public statements. At times these attacks on scientists and their academic freedom are unwarranted and can leave many confused and wondering how to handle the situation. To help out, AGU and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund (CSLDF) have partnered to prepare the scientific community for these challenges through a Legal Education Series, a series of webinars along with events at AGU's 2012 Fall Meeting. This series provides scientists with information to help guide and update them on legal issues and situations currently making their way through the courts.

  18. Standardizing Legal Content with OWL and RDF

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hondros, Constantine

    Wolters Kluwer is one of the largest legal publishers in the world. Its various publishing units use a multitude of different formats to mark up what is effectively similar content. We describe a common content architecture based on OWL, RDF and XHTML that is used to build a standard representation of legal content, allowing publishable assets to be integrated across the enterprise. This architecture is governed by an OWL ontology that models the (occasionally complex) behaviour of legal documents and acts as a domain model of common legal metadata. How do OWL and RDF scale up to real-world publishing? We describe practical issues in producing and validating RDF on an industrial scale; in performance management; in handling fragmented ontologies; and the challenge of using RDF in a performant XSLT pipeline.

    National courts have been key players in the legal push for Europe, though notably to varying degrees. This paper examines the persisting variations in the referral rates of national courts and the underlying causal factors, aiming to better understand why some member states' courts have been more...... reluctant to join in the legal push for Europe. By using econometric methods, it challenges the modified neofunctionalist argument that the extent of intra-EC trade explains the referral practice of the individual member states. Majoritarian democracy is hypothesized as a causal factor in the low referral...... of majoritarian democracy on the number of referrals. The paper concludes that, owing to the uneven legal push for Europe, some member states and their citizens remain at arms' length from the legal integration process - and, in consequence, from the full impact of European integration....

    An exponential improvement of numerical weather prediction (NWP) models was observed during the last decade (Lynch, 2008). Civil Protection (CP) systems exploited Meteo services in order to redeploy their actions towards the prediction and prevention of events rather than towards an exclusively response-oriented mechanism1. Nevertheless, experience tells us that NWP models, even if assisted by real time observations, are far from being deterministic. Complications frequently emerge in medium to long range forecasting, which are subject to sudden modifications. On the other hand, short term forecasts, if seen through the lens of criminal trials2, are to the same extent, scarcely reliable (Molini et al., 2009). One particular episode related with wrong forecasts, in the Italian panorama, has deeply frightened CP operators as the NWP model in force missed a meteorological adversity which, in fact, caused death and dealt severe damage in the province of Vibo Valentia (2006). This event turned into a very discussed trial, lasting over three years, and intended against whom assumed the legal position of guardianship within the CP. A first set of data is now available showing that in concomitance with the trial of Vibo Valentia the number of alerts issued raised almost three folds. We sustain the hypothesis that the beginning of the process of overcriminalization (Husak, 2008) of CPs is currently increasing the number of false alerts with the consequent effect of weakening alert perception and response by the citizenship (Brezntiz, 1984). The common misunderstanding of such an issue, i.e. the inherent uncertainty in weather predictions, mainly by prosecutors and judges, and generally by whom deals with law and justice, is creating the basis for a defensive behaviour3 within CPs. This paper intends, thus, to analyse the social and legal relevance of uncertainty in the process of issuing meteo-hydrological alerts by CPs. Footnotes: 1 The Italian Civil Protection is working

    Nanosciences and nanotechnologies come into a pre-existing legal system. Their arrival, and how they are received are worthy of analysis. Such an effort shall at first include simply lexical considerations, in order to penetrate, via their origins, the traces of these specific objects into the territory of law. The goal of this article is to explore the effects of "nanos" in various legal fields, including their relevance to the principle of precaution, patent law, and the applicable laws for chemical substances.

  9. Genes from scratch – the evolutionary fate of de novo genes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schlötterer, Christian

    2015-01-01

    Although considered an extremely unlikely event, many genes emerge from previously noncoding genomic regions. This review covers the entire life cycle of such de novo genes. Two competing hypotheses about the process of de novo gene birth are discussed as well as the high death rate of de novo genes. Despite the high death rate, some de novo genes are retained and remain functional, even in distantly related species, through their integration into gene networks. Further studies combining gene expression with ribosome profiling in multiple populations across different species will be instrumental for an improved understanding of the evolutionary processes operating on de novo genes.

    Full Text Available El modelo neurobiológico de la conciencia está implantado y arraigado en la ciencia actual. En esta contribución se pretende probar que posee unos débiles cimientos que deben ser reforzados. Para mostrarlo se reflexiona críticamente sobre tres de sus dimensiones que se pueden considerar esenciales: (i la identificación de conciencia y cerebro; (ii la negación del libre albedrío; y (iii las escasas aplicaciones clínicas del modelo. Estas reflexiones nos indican la necesidad de construir un modelo más robusto. Se necesita un modelo predictivo cuyos resultados no solamente se puedan validar sino que además tengan aplicaciones prácticas que sirvan para mejorar el bienestar y la calidad de vida de las personas.

    Full Text Available Esse artigo pretende, primeiramente, em vista da tramitação de um novo Plano Nacional de Educação enviado pelo Executivo ao Congresso Nacional, resgatar a evolução dos planos anteriores. Vários foram os Planos Nacionais de Educação e todos eles fracassaram. Em seguida, em outro contexto legal, social e político, considerando a definição de Plano, busca-se analisar a exposição de motivos do Plano, o texto legal e seus anexos. Certos temas continuam presentes como grandes desafios para que, desta vez, o Plano possa vir a ser bem-sucedido. Entre os principais temas, deve-se destacar o papel da União no sistema federativo brasileiro, com especial atenção para a denominada função supletiva, o regime de colaboração e os recursos financeiros.This article intends to examinate the procedures in the Brazilian Parliament to the new National Plan of Education. It aims also to recover the evolution of the former plans. All of these plan have failed. After, considering the definition of plan and the new legal, social and political context, the article pursues to analyze the exposition of the plan's reasons, the law's text and its attached. Some themes continue present from the past as great challenges to be overcome. Among these themes we can distinguish the role of the Union in the Brazilian federal system, the colaboration's regime with the other members of the federation and the public funds for the education.
