    This study fulfils the need of establishing a guideline for environmental conditions that could be used to designing stages in projects submitted to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), in order to consider minimal requirements not only to encourage EIA proceedings but also to reduce Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) contents. EIS from the last 10 year for different civil works projects (roads, railways, airports, dams, hidroelectrical power stations, river channelizations, pipelines, water transfers, ports and works in the coast) have been studied, extracting all the environmental conditions found. Effectiveness and real implementation of theses conditions have been analysed in different phases of the project development, which have allowed a characterization of a series of environmental conditions that could improve environmental assessments and authorities decisions for EIS.

    The atmospheric pollution in the Mexico City Metropolitan Zone (MCMZ), was detected during the 1960's and presents nowadays considerable dimensions. The atmospheric pollution problem evolution in the MCMZ is presented in this paper, considering criteria pollutants as particles and ozone, and hazardous air pollutants as benzene. Successful an unsuccessful experiences looking for improve the air quality in the MCMZ are evaluated. These experiences should be account for in other Mexican cities, as well as in developing countries. The MCMZ air quality evolution is an important case where implemented strategies in order to reduce sulphur dioxide and lead, resulted an increase in levels, frequency and duration of ozone concentrations in the atmosphere. Basic concepts of environmental engineering: prevention, minimization and control, as well as pollution control in the source, must be considered. [Spanish] La contaminacion atmosferica en la Zona Metropolitana de la Ciudad de Mexico (ZMCM), se hizo evidente en la decada de los a s sesenta y, a la fecha, ha alcanzado dimensiones considerables. En este trabajo se presenta la evolucion del problema de contaminacion atmosferica en la ZMCM, enfocandolo a contaminantes criterio como particulas y ozono, y contaminantes toxicos como el benceno. Asimismo, se exponen experiencias exitosas y las que han fracasado en busca de una mejor calidad del aire para la ZMCM; es recomendable que dichas experiencias sean consideradas en otras ciudades de nuestro pais, asi como en otros paises en vias de desarrollo, ofreciendoles la importancia debida.

    Full Text Available Esse trabalho consistiu na obtenção e estudo de uma argamassa de peso leve para o uso na construção civil através da adição combinada, de aditivos formadores de microporosidade, mais a utilização de cargas que incorporam resíduos industriais. A técnica vem sendo recentemente apontada como uma promissora alternativa para a construção de estruturas leves, onde o compromisso da resistência mecânica aliada às ações ambientais, tais como degradações físico-químicas provocadas por intemperismo, não representam pré-requisitos básicos da construção civil, que possam impedir a utilização de argamassas de baixa densidade, com micro porosidade controlada. Assim sendo, esse trabalho utilizou aditivos adequados para a formação de bolhas estáveis, e quando necessário, agentes promotores de resistência mecânica, tais que puderam compensar perdas de resistência devido a presença excessiva das bolhas. A avaliação da influência dos aditivos, bem como do método de preparação das argamassas leves que incluem o mecanismo de mistura, o desenvolvimento microestrutural e propriedades são correlacionados, visando a obtenção de uma composição adequada que possa ser utilizada na fabricação de estruturas leves.The purpose of that work was to obtain a lightweight mortar for use in the civil construction through the combined addition of micropore chemical formers and industrial residues. Recently, the lightweight mortar technique has been pointed out as an alternative for the construction of light structures, where the commitment of the mechanical resistance associated with the climate actions, such as physical-chemical degradation caused by environmental actions, do not represent basic requirements for civil construction that could restrain the use of low density mortar, with micropore controlled structure.

(author) [Spanish] Se analizan en la memoria varios problemas encontrados al aplicar los datos basicos sobre difusion a sistemas de interes practico para la ingenierfa nuclear. Estos problemas se refieren a experimentos de difusion isotermica, difusion por gradiente termico y efectos de la radiacion sobre los procesos de difusion. La mayor parte de la informacion fidedigna sobre la difusion en solidos proviene de casos donde no existe, en esencia, gradiente alguno de concentracion de las especies que se difunden. Los sistemas que interesan a los ingenieros nucleares, en cambio, presentan casi invariablemente gradientes de concentracion. Asf, pues, para evaluarlos coeficientes adecuados es necesario contar con un conocimiento practico de la relacion existente entre los coeficientes de autodifusiOn y de difusion quimica. Ademas, es preciso conocer los coeficientes de actividad termodinamica como funciones de la composicion. Recientemente se ha demostrado sin lugar a dudas que el uso indiscriminado de una expresion del tipo de la de Arrhenius para describir la manera en que los datos de difusion dependen de la temperatura, puede introducir graves errores en el calculo de los coeficientes de difusion. Se analizan en la memoria las consecuencias de ese hecho, haciendo especial hincapie en los sistemas cubicos centrados en el cuerpo/ del tipo refractario.

    Full Text Available Resumo O kaizen é um dos princípios que sustentam o Sistema Toyota de Produção (STP como filosofia, porém é árduo seu uso na Indústria da Construção Civil (ICC devido às suas inerentes características de produção. Assim, foi desenvolvido um modelo que auxilia o profissional da ICC a desenvolver de forma sistemática um projeto kaizen, por meio do uso de ferramentas de diagnóstico e análise do sistema de produção. O método de pesquisa é definido por três etapas sequenciais governadas por duas estratégias de pesquisa: teórico-conceitual, para as atividades de revisão bibliográfica e desenvolvimento do modelo, e pesquisa-ação visando à aplicação em um canteiro de obras voltado para a produção de habitações. Como resultado da pesquisa-ação, por meio do modelo, foram identificados e classificados nove problemas no sistema produtivo, suas raízes e oportunidades de kaizen. A proposta de sistematização da geração de oportunidades de kaizen para a ICC contribui diretamente para a qualidade dos produtos finais e redução de custos nos canteiros de obras, pois possibilita a melhoria contínua dos processos a partir de maiores níveis de valor agregado, com a redução do uso de recursos na produção.

    Full Text Available In this paper we look at the literature related to partnership between state and civil society, especially partnership between public and non-for-profi t organisations. We discuss the differing perspectives of partnership and attempt to identify some of the main theoretical concerns about partnership between state and civil society in the governance context. In this paper, we argue that the historical background of partnership has not been included among factors used in explaining the resort to partnership in governance. In spite of existing analyses showing that partnership brings social benefi ts in their own right, we try to show that there is no evidence that this ‘social technology’ contributes effectively to bringing power to powerless people and social groups. Most of the literature shows that partnership tries to make relationship between local people and local governance stronger and improve the possibilities for powerless people and social groups to participate in local governance. However, we do not fi nd clear evidence in the literature that partnership allows for a shift in political power. Finally, we show that it is unclear whether the interaction between ordinary people and the state through a participatory process has successfully helped to build social cohesiveness for different social groups. The main contribution of this paper is to expand the understanding of the factors that infl uence the process of partnership between state and civil society (positively and negatively for local development. ---- Parceria entre o Estado e a Sociedade Civil: pontos para o debate e novas pesquisas ---- Resumo ---- Neste artigo analisamos a literatura de parceria entre o estado e a sociedade civil, em particular sobre a parceria entre as organizações públicas e as organizações sem fins lucrativos.

    2014-01-01

    Iberdrola Ingenieria y Construccion (hereinafter IEC) has developed a significant number of projects in several nuclear plants worldwide. Some of these plants are under operation, while others are under construction. Nowadays, IEC is actively participating in the design and construction of some safety and non-safety class systems of Flamanville 3, for EDF, has actively participated for OL4 (Finland) in one of the Nuclear Island (NI) proposal development covering for example complete NI supply chain and Licence Feasibility Study stages. Also, in the UK IEC has developed site characterization, licensing and heat sink analysis and supply chain development activities for NUGEN and is performing support engineering activities for HGNE for Wylfa. In addition, IEC performed the project for the refurbishment of Laguna Verde 1 and 2 turbine islands in Mexico, with a budget above 600 M USD. Nowadays, successful development of a new nuclear plant project in Europe, with stringent regulatory requirements for licensing and permitting which directly impact in the development of design, supply, construction and commissioning, requires successful integration of these processes by Regulatory Authority, Customer, Main Supplier and its entire supply chain. The soft integration of design, supply chain, construction and commissioning in the entire project development, will permit the application of advanced construction and engineering methodologies, as for example 'Open Top' construction or modular design, while minimizing regulatory delays. This integration represents one of the main challenges to minimize nuclear projects risk in order to successfully develop the project of a new plant considering a construction period of less than 5 year. Current paper provides a short description of proposed methodology and experiences of IEC, exposing several examples taken from actual experience in the design, supply and installation of systems in Flamanville 3 and from Olkiluoto 4

    Full Text Available Apesar da importância da etapa de projeto no desenvolvimento de produtos, com freqüência falhas de projeto têm impactam negativamente o processo de produção. Muitas destas falhas decorrem do emprego de apenas duas dimensões para representação do produto. Uma das alternativas para vencer este problema é a modelagem do produto em 3D. Este artigo apresenta os resultados de um estudo cujo objetivo foi explorar as contribuições da prototipagem virtual para integrar as etapas de projeto e produção. A pesquisa foi conduzida a partir da modelagem virtual para detalhamento dos acabamentos de banheiros. Também foi acompanhada a prototipagem física com a intenção de verificar a conformidade da execução em relação às soluções adotadas na prototipagem virtual e identificar os requisitos para que aumentasse o grau de conformidade. As principais contribuições foram: (a definição e análise de soluções para o detalhamento voltado a orientar a produção; e (b antecipação de situações não previstas no projeto 2D que poderiam resultar em interferências na produção. Como requisitos foram apontados: (a controle de qualidade dos materiais e serviços executados para minimizar as variações dimensionais; (b emprego de tecnologias mais avançadas, menos sujeitas a variações dimensionais; e (c necessidade de incorporação do conhecimento técnico a respeito do processo de produção.

    Full Text Available Las organizaciones de la sociedad civil (OSC han ido ganando terreno en las últimas décadas en Argentina debido a los múltiples conflictos sociales que atravesó y sigue atravesando el país. Estas organizaciones generaron sus propios procesos comunicacionales y se convirtieron en espacios alternativos para el análisis y el ejercicio de la comunicación organizacional. Sin embargo, diversos estudios evidencian la carencia de un corpus teórico consolidado y de una práctica de la profesión homogénea en sus denominaciones y actividades en este ámbito. Así, surge la necesidad de realizar una reflexión tanto teórica como práctica que dé cuenta de dichas diferencias y permita un abordaje especializado. Para ello, este trabajo propone realizar un estudio de campo, en organizaciones sociales de la provincia de Mendoza con la intención principal de profundizar en el conocimiento de las dinámicas comunicacionales propias de las OSC. Asimismo, intenta dilucidar si estas dinámicas, visibles en estratégicas, conceptualizaciones, herramientas y prácticas de comunicación, se presentan de una forma diferenciada a las dinámicas propias de la comunicación organizacional tradicional.

    The thesis work develops a methodology to determine when it is convenient, technically and economically to provide maintenance to a thermal electric unit and the type of maintenance to be performed, all this sustained in an economic analysis taking into account the variation of the production costs, of the interest rates, of the fuel prices and of the electric energy prices, the maintenance costs and the degradation of the unit in the time. Once analyzed the previous matters a thermo-economic test model and reference (values provided by the manufacturer) is performed and they are compared to determine in what equipment or system of the process of electric energy generation is required to focus on the material resources as well as on the human resources, in order to obtain the best results from the maintenance and recover the greatest possible efficiency of the unit. [Spanish] El trabajo de tesis desarrolla una metodologia para determinar cuando conviene, tecnica y economicamente proporcionar mantenimiento a una unidad termica y el tiempo de mantenimiento a realizar, todo esto sustentado en un analisis economico tomando en cuenta la variacion de los costos de produccion de las tasas de interes, de los precios del combustible y de la energia electrica, el costo de mantenimiento y la degradacion de la unidad en el tiempo. Una vez analizado lo anterior se realiza un modelo termoeconomico de prueba y referencia (valores proporcionados por el fabricante) y se comparan para determinar en que equipos o sistema del proceso de generacion de energia electrica se requiere enfocar tanto los recursos materiales como humanos, con el fin de obtener mejores resultados del mantenimiento y recuperar lo mayor posible la eficiencia de la unidad.

    Full Text Available En Los indios recién descubiertos (1538, Francisco de Vitoria afirma que hay una comunicación y sociedad natural entre todos los seres humanos. Cuarenta anos después, en Lima, el jesuita JOSÉ DE Acosta, en Sobre la salvación de los indios (1576, escribe una suerte de informe sobre cómo poner en práctica esta comunicación por medio de métodos pacificos de predicación. Es un tipo de tratado de comunicación, en el cual denuncia la práctica de las conversiones forzadas. Para Acosta, el éxito de la comunicación del evangelio a los indios supone un cambio voluntario de creencias y acciones, basado en lo que él considera la razón natural. Esta discusión filosófica y teológica muestra que hay un entretejido normativo entre el ius gentium, ius civile y ley eclesiástica, y que la actual teoria de la comunicación tiene mucho que aprender de este caso paradigmático y parcialmente fracasado de comunicación del evangelio en América.In On the Recently Discovered American Indians (1538, Francisco de Vitoria states that there is natural communication and society among all human beings. Forty years later, in Lima, the Jesuit JOSÉ DE Acosta, in On the Salvation of the Indians (1576, writes a report about how to put into practice this communication through peaceful preaching. It is a kind of communication treatise, in which he also denounces the practice of forcing conversions. To Acosta, successful communication of the gospel to Indians signifies a willing shift of beliefs and actions, based on what he considers natural reason. This philosophical and theological discussion shows that there is a normative interweaving between ius gentium, ius civile and ecclesiastic law, and that a contemporary theory of communication has a lot to learn from the paradigmatic and partially failed case of communicating the gospel in America.

Inspections of the physical plant and interviews to area managers were realized. The results obtained have allowed to implement improvements of the activities in safe working environment conditions and teaching; and an adequate signaling and demarcation of the facilities, location and recharge of fire extinguishers. An emergency plan is elaborated for the Laboratorio de Ingenieria Quimica, by performing a sequence of stages proposed by Comision Nacional de Emergencias. In addition, a plan for the safe and effective management of waste generated is made based on the reagents most frequently used in the different practices. The method of storage Flinn Scientific was selected as the most appropriate method to organize and distribute chemicals in the laboratory reagent storage area, obtaining the highest percentage in the decision matrix. Security aspects in the registration and documentation system implemented in the laboratory administration are evaluated by a checklist. This assessment has allowed to propose improvements, to increase the efficiency and to obtain an easy storage, control and a fast search of the information by means of the procedures documented and elaborated. Some of the recommendations proposed have been the establishment of an emergency action committee, the reduction of unnecessary quantities of chemicals stored, training on safety, operation of fire extinguisher and first aid; and construction of an emergency exit, etc. [es

    This study was conducted to verify technical feasibility in reusing drill cuttings originated in oil and gas exploration and production to produce concrete or mortar elements. It consisted of physical and chemical characterization of all items used to build field-cured cement samples - drill cuttings, cement and used aggregates; evaluation of resistance; environmental behavior and classification of the resultant materials. The results had demonstrated the reuse of drill cuttings is possible from both technical and environmental perspective and the ratio of concrete or mortar can be customized according to physical and mechanical needs of end products. In the civil construction elements can be built and used as road basis, ground-cement base, blocks and bricks and other non-structural elements. The application of these elements in E and P operations include containment walls for onshore wells, collecting stations, pipeline brackets, supports and hold-down anchors as well as road pavement and access. From the standpoint of chemical safety, the resultant elements made-up from drill cuttings had demonstrated no potential risk for hydrocarbon leaching (TPH), Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH's), Volatile Organic Compounds (BTEX), Phenols nor Metals. From these results many improvements in the E and P waste management can be established, bringing both economy and greater environment protection measures for the Oil and Gas Exploration and Production operations.

    According to German law (Para. 1631b German Civil Code), the placement of children and adolescents following seclusion and restraint actions must be approved by a family court. We analyzed the family court data of a court district in Berlin (Tempelhof-Kreuzberg) concerning cases of “placement of minors” between 2008 and 2011. A total of 474 such procedures were discovered. After data clearing and correction of cases (e. g., because of emergency interventions of the youth welfare system taking children into custody according to Para. 42, German Civil Code VIII), 376 cases remained. Of these 376 procedures in the years 2008 to 2011, 127 cases concerned children and adolescents according to Para. 1631b German Civil Code, and 249 procedures were settled either by dismissal, withdrawal or by repealing the initial decision to place the child with restrain or seclusion by means of an interim order or by filing an appeal against the final decision. Of the 127 procedures, 68 concerned girls, who were on average slightly younger than boys (14.5 years vs. 15.1 years). In two thirds of the procedures, the children and adolescents were German citizens. The majority of youths involved were living at home at the time of the procedure, but in 15 % of the case the youths were homeless. Most of the adolescents were treated with restraint in child and adolescent psychiatry. The most frequently quoted reasons for seclusion were substance abuse, suicide risk and running away from home/being homeless.

El texto incorpora algunas correcciones para efectos de su publicación. En el mismo, se efectúa un análisis de la Ley de Enjuiciamiento Civil española (LEC a partir de la observación de audiencias, la realización de entrevistas y la revisión de doctrina y jurisprudencia con la finalidad de verificar en la práctica la materialización de los principios de Oralidad, Contradicción e Inmediación que consagra la ley. El trabajo presenta una breve descripción del estado actual del sistema de justicia civil en España y de las principales audiencias consagradas en la LEC para los procesos declarativos. Luego, el autor describe y desarrolla una serie de aspectos problemáticos que, a su juicio, se presentan en la práctica a partir de ciertas normas de la LEC y desde las técnicas de litigación oral. Consciente de la influencia que representa la LEC para el proceso de reforma a la justicia civil en Chile el autor efectúa un breve repaso del proyecto de Código Procesal Civil chileno del año 2009, constatando como éste supera algunos de los problemas observados en la LEC pero que a su vez mantiene otros, los que, a juicio del autor, pueden influir en la correcta implementación y desarrollo en la práctica de la reforma al proceso civil en Chile. Finalmente, se presentan algunas propuestas concretas para corregir y mejorar los problemas observados en la LEC. Como señala su autor, este trabajo tiene por finalidad constituir un aporte al debate sobre la reforma procesal civil, haciendo presente la importancia que tiene recoger las buenas y malas experiencias que en la práctica presentan otros sistemas procesales orales, incluyendo la reforma procesal penal chilena, dada la distancia que muchas veces se produce entre la teoría y la práctica.This text is the final study conducted

  12. Desarrollo e implementación de un sistema láser para caracterización dinámica y medición de desplazamientos en estructuras civiles

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jean Michel Franco

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available La instrumentación y el monitoreo de vibraciones en estructuras civiles ha ganado importancia en las últimas décadas debido a potenciales aplicaciones en identificación modal y monitoreo de salud estructural. La identificación de las propiedades dinámicas de las estructuras permite que sus modelos numéricos sean ajustados mientras que el monitoreo de salud estructural permite la identificación y caracterización del daño en las estructuras con el objetivo de realizar intervenciones anticipadas de bajo costo. Los acelerómetros son los instrumentos más empleados en estructuras civiles porque pueden ser adheridos directamente a la estructura sin requerir un marco independiente de referencia. En casos en los que se requieren los valores de desplazamiento, estos son frecuentemente estimados de manera indirecta mediante la doble integración numérica de las aceleraciones medidas. Sin embargo, estos métodos numéricos usualmente introducen errores considerables en los resultados. Este artículo presenta el desarrollo, la validación y la implementación en escala real de un novedoso sistema para la medición directa de desplazamientos de estructuras civiles. El sistema consiste en punteros láser de bajo costo que se adhieren a la estructura, una pantalla y una cámara de vídeo, y algoritmos para el procesamiento de imágenes que operan en un computador. La validación del sistema se realizó mediante una serie de pruebas de laboratorio y el análisis comparativo de los resultados usando instrumentos de referencia. El sistema se implementó en un puente peatonal en Cali, Colombia, y los desplazamientos obtenidos con el sistema láser fueron comparados con los estimados con mediciones de aceleración. Los resultados muestran que el sistema propuesto es una alternativa precisa y de bajo costo para aplicaciones de instrumentación en estructuras civiles.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi recuperar dois resíduos inorgânicos provenientes da industria cerâmica para serem utilizados como aditivos em argamassas. A evolução estrutural e química resultante do tratamento térmico dos resíduos, avaliada através de ensaios específicos das amostras de argamassas aditivadas, revelou que suas propriedades melhoraram através da presença das fases alumina e metacaulinita presentes nos resíduos. A caracterização morfológica e mineralógica em diferentes situações de ensaios revelou que em alguns casos eles poderiam ser tratados através de processos de conformação específicos. A presença dessas fases contribuiu para um bom comportamento físico e químico dos materiais que apresentaram características pozolânicas e cementantes. Ensaios por difração de raios X, microscopia eletrônica de varredura, resistência à compressão e condutividade térmica foram correlacionados e mostraram que esses resíduos podem ser utilizados em argamassas melhorando o seu desempenho.The aim of this work was to recover two inorganic wastes from ceramic industries by use in the mortar material. Tests regarding the chemical and structural evolution with temperature were performed with specific test samples, which revealed that both residues improved their properties by presence of alumina and metakaolinite phases. The morphological, chemical and mineralogical characterizations of different waste disposal batches revealed that in some cases they should be treated by those conformation processes. The presence of these phases contributes to a good physical and chemical behavior of the waste materials, which presented pozzolanic and cementitious characteristics. Moreover, the tests performed by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, compression resistance, and heat conductivity were correlated, and showed a good performance of these wastes to be used in the mortar material.

Esto conlleva a que existan distintos tipos de profesionales ya que reciben distintos tipos de formación, el que finalmente no deja que todos puedan asumir los mismos tipos de responsabilidad. Igual situación se observa en relación a los seguros de responsabilidad civil que contratan estos profesionales, los que tienen una gran variación en cuanto a sus características. Estos problemas aun no tienen normativas concretas que la regulen, por lo que es una situación de gran importancia para la sociedad comunitaria. Por todo esto, es que en este análisis se estudiarán varios conceptos relacionados a la realidad sobre el título y la función del arquitecto en Europa. Abstract The professional practice of architecture, involves by its nature, some important consequences such as liability burdens, being also the Civil, one of the most important. In general in Europe, there is a great heterogeneity dealing with what to do as an architect, since it varies from a purely artistic vision, to a more technical and constructive one, representing different professional concepts under a common denomination throughout the continent. This leads to the existence of different types of professionals since they receive different types of training, which ultimately does not allow everyone to assume the same types of responsibility. The same situation is observed in relation to the civil liability insurances contracted by these professionals, which have a great variation in

    Full Text Available Recientemente en México se ha incrementado la proporción de adultos mayores (AM y de Organizaciones de la Sociedad Civil (OSC que ayudan a los pobres. Nuestro objetivo fue analizar la capacidad que tienen las OSC de implementar acciones para mejorar la calidad de vida de los AM pobres de zonas urbanas. En 2005 se realizaron 14 entrevistas al personal de diez OSC que trabajaban en colonias pobres de cuatro ciudades de México. La guía de entrevista y el análisis se basaron en la estructura interna y el contexto externo que afecta la capacidad de las OSC. Entre los principales logros se destacan una mayor participación y autogestión de la gente y el número de acciones realizadas para mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas. Los principales obstáculos identificados son una demanda poblacional que supera la capacidad de respuesta de las OSC, una población objetivo que generalmente no son los AM y un financiamiento insuficiente. La atención proporcionada por las OSC a los AM, aunque trascendental, es escasa, por tanto es necesario promover una cultura de prevención e interés en los AM y de apoyo a las OSC.

    Full Text Available Este ensaio buscou conceber em que medida o pensamento político e social brasileiro, ao interrogar as possibilidades de constituição de uma civilização brasileira, legou tópicos e subsídios para o pensamento sobre democracia nesse território. Esses subsídios foram derivados dos marcos de interpretação sobre o Brasil, como tradição e ruptura, iberismo e americanismo, centralização e descentralização ou precedência do Estado e autonomia da sociedade. Para articular esses temas à reflex��o sobre democracia, foram analisadas obras de Visconde de Uruguai, de Tavares Bastos, Euclides da Cunha, Sérgio Buarque de Holanda e Gilberto Freyre, produzidas do Império à República. Observou-se, ainda, como a ciência política e a análise sociológica preconizaram uma ação demiúrgica do Estado sobre o social e produziram um entendimento acerca da sociabilidade.This essay tries to understand to what extent the Brazilian political and social thought, while questioning possibilities of setting up a Brazilian civilization, has left some topics to consider a democracy in Brazil. These topics were derived from different kinds of interpretations about the country, sustained in dualities such as tradition and rupture, iberianism and americanism, centralization and decentralization, State control and social autonomy. In order to link these subjects to understand the characteristics of a democratic thinking, we have analyzed the works written from the Empire to Republic by Visconde do Uruguai, Tavares Bastos, Euclides da Cunha, Sérgio Buarque de Holanda and Gilberto Freyre. Futhermore, we have remarked how political science and sociological analysis advocated a demiurgical action of the State on society and developed a sort of understanding about sociability.

La Guerre civile espagnole apparaît donc comme un élément fondamental pour expliquer l'échec des tentatives de création d'un large front diplomatique et militaire européen contre l'expansionnisme de l'axe Rome-Berlin.This article analyses the impact of the Spanish Civil War upon the unstable European context of the late 1930s and, particularly, upon the reactions towards the conflict of the Democratic Powers, Great Britain and France, on the one hand, and the Soviet Union, on the other. Its fundamental conclusion is that the prickly « Spanish problem » revealed throughout the profound cleavage between the « policy of collective security » as it was understood by the USSR and the « policy of appeasement » as it was practised by the French and British governments. Indeed, the prolonged war in Spain seemed to be a crucial factor in the failure to create a broad diplomatic and military front in Europe against the expansionism of the Axis Powers.El artículo examina el impacto de la guerra civil española sobre el inestable escenario europeo contemporáneo y se centra particularmente en la respuesta dada a la misma por las potencias democráticas occidentales, Gran Bretaña y Francia, y por la Unión Soviética.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La segunda mitad del reinado de Felipe IV (1640-1665 continúa siendo un "período oscuro". Sin embargo, fue durante aquellos años cuando la Monarquía Hispánica tuvo que afrontar la crisis decisiva de su continuidad como potencia europea, y ante una nueva coyuntura que la política exterior tradicional de los Austrias españoles no fue capaz de superar con éxito. La actitud de Felipe IV ante la rebelión irlandesa de 1641 mostró el intento de adaptación de Madrid a sus fuerzas reales, pero sólo para dirigirlas hacia unos objetivos mucho más ambiciosos, y con resultados negativos. Las décadas centrales del siglo XVII —más que los años de Olivares— fueron las que señalaron el fracaso terminal de Madrid en la escena europea. ABSTRACT: The second half of the reign of Philip IV (1640-1665 is still an "obscure period". Nevertheless it was during that years when the Hispanic Monarchy had to confront the decisive crisis of continuity like european power, and faced with a new conjuncture that the traditional foreign policy of the Spanish Habsburgs could not overcome. The attitude of Philip IV before the Irish Rebellion in 1641 showed the attempt of Madrid to adapt to his real force, but only to direct it towards very much ambitious objectives, and with negative results. That period —more than Olivares 's years— decided the failure of Madrid on the european scene.

    Full Text Available A busca por materiais com desempenho mecânico e durabilidade cada vez superiores tem sido o alvo dos pesquisadores da tecnologia dos concretos. Para tanto, concretos obtidos a partir da engenharia de microestrutura são necessários. Com base nos conceitos de empacotamento e dispersão de partículas é possível obter materiais com matrizes densas e trabalhabilidade adequada. Assim, as propriedades de concretos dosados com base nesses conceitos são apresentadas e comparadas àquelas de concretos de alto desempenho, adotados em pesquisas da construção civil. As propriedades no estado fresco foram avaliadas medindo-se o índice de fluidez e determinando-se o comportamento reológico do material. No estado endurecido, a resistência mecânica foi avaliada pelos ensaios de compressão uniaxial, tração por compressão diametral e flexão em 3 pontos, enquanto o módulo de elasticidade foi avaliado pelos métodos estático e dinâmico. Os concretos desenvolvidos se apresentaram trabalháveis por um período de tempo superior que o concreto de referência, sem a necessidade da incorporação de aditivos retardadores. Em termos de resistência mecânica, foi possível observar uma maior reprodutibilidade dos resultados obtidos para os concretos formulados por dosagem computacional. Além disso, os resultados possibilitaram estabelecer boas correlações entre as resistências medidas para esses concretos, bem como entre os módulos de elasticidade medidos por ambos os métodos de ensaio.The search for materials with better mechanical performance and durability has been the aim of the concrete's technology researchers.

    La tesis fundamental del trabajo está expresada en el título: la sociedad civil es condición indispensable para que se pueda realizar una tarea educativa de altura y, a su vez, sin una educación bien hecha la sociedad civil sería imposible. Como sucede siempre, se puede comenzar por intentar mejorar las estructuras de la sociedad civil, o por potenciar la educación, pero en realidad la clave ahora está en cambiar la concepción tanto de la sociedad civil como de la educación.

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available O volume de resíduos inorgânicos gerados a cada ano vem crescendo em todo mundo e apresenta um dos maiores problemas da sociedade moderna. Este trabalho tem por objetivo analisar a viabilidade de utilização do resíduo da serragem do granito e de resíduos da construção civil como materiais alternativos para a produção de argamassas. Os resíduos foram caracterizados física e mineralogicamente por meio da determinação de distribuição e tamanho de partículas, massa e área específica, composição química, difração de raios X e análise térmica diferencial. Foi determinado o índice de atividade pozolânica com cal dos resíduos da construção. Foram formuladas composições de argamassas substituindo parcialmente a cal pelos resíduos, e moldados corpos-de-prova. Os corpos-de-prova foram curados por 7, 14, 28 e 60 dias e, em seguida, foi determinada a resistência à compressão simples. Os resíduos apresentam elevados teores de SiO2, Al2O3 e Fe2O3 e possuem as fases cristalinas quartzo, mica, feldspato, carbonato de cálcio e óxido de ferro. A substituição do aglomerante por resíduos na produção de argamassas pode ser efetuada com sucesso em teores de até 50% e os resíduos com atividade pozolânica propiciam aumentos significativos na resistência à compressão simples das argamassas.Around the world the amount of inorganic wastes has increased dramatically and is one of the most important issues for modern society. This work has as aim to analyze the suitability of granite sawing waste and construction wastes as alternative raw materials for the production of mortars. The wastes were physically and mineralogical characterized by the determination of particle size distribution, specific mass and specific area, chemical composition, X-ray diffraction, and differential thermal analysis. The pozzolanic activity index with hydrated lime of construction wastes was determined. Mortar compositions were formulated

    Full Text Available ¿Puede la desobediencia civil justificarse moralmente? Este trabajo intenta dar una respuesta afirmativa a esta pregunta. Para dar cuenta de por qué la desobediencia civil es moralmente justificable, primero se describen algunos rasgos esenciales de la desobediencia civil. Después se explica la manera en la que tensión entre el poder civil y el poder del individuo –tensión que se asume como la fuente de la desobediencia civil–, bajo la consideración de algunos pasajes de la Fundamentación metafísica de las costumbres, resulta sólo aparente. Una vez disuelta la tensión se defiende que las fuentes normativas individuales y sociales no sólo no se contraponen, sino que su complementariedad es necesaria para justificar la desobediencia civil. Aunque suene paradójico: sólo se puede abrir espacio a la desobediencia a partir de resaltar la importancia de la obediencia y de la ley.

  4. Nuclear energy and civilization

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Soentono, S.

    1996-01-01

    The role of energy is indeed very important since without it there will be no living-things in this world. A country's ability to cultivate energy determines the levels of her civilization and wealth. Sufficient energy supply is needed for economic growth, industrialization, and modernization. In a modern civilization, the prosperity and security of a country depends more on the capability of her people rather than the wealth of her natural resources. Energy supplies the wealth, prosperity and security, and sufficient reliable continuous supply of energy secures the sustainable development. The energy supply to sustain the development has to improve the quality of life covering also the quality of environment to support the ever increasing demand of human race civilization. Energy has a closer relationship with civilization in a modern society and will have to become even closer in the future more civilized and more modern society. The utilization of nuclear energy has, however, some problems and challenges, e.g. misleading information and understanding which need serious efforts for public information, public relation, and public acceptance, and possible deviation of nuclear materials for non-peaceful uses which needs serious efforts for technological and administrative barriers, precaution, prevention, safety, physical protection, safeguard, and transparency. These require cooperation among nuclear community. The cooperation should be more pronounced by heterogeneous growing Asian countries to reach harmony for mutual benefits toward better civilization.

    The mortars can be considered as a mixture of the binders and aggregates with water, having capacity of the induration and adherence. Instead, it is suggested the production of mortars using civil construction waste, with plenty silicoaluminate, obtained in demolitions and reforms of build, and fly ash as material pozzolana, obtained of the combustion of mineral coal in fluidized bed boilers, in partial replacement of Portland cement. The civil construction wastes were benefited and characterized by X-ray spectrometry and X-ray diffraction. The fly ash was characterized by granulometric analyze and X-ray spectrometry. The mortars of the were prepared using the following compositions of RCC, 95, 90, 85, 80, 75 and 70%; CV of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% e 5% of Portland CP II Z 32 cement. In all the compositions were put 0,8% of water and the rheological testing was used the same proportions residue (RCC e CV) with 35% water. The specimens were cured for 28 days and after were submitted physical trials of absorption, porosity and bulk density; mechanical trials of resistance to compression and analysis of X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The results obtained show that the recycling of civil construction waste and the use of fly ash and RCC is a promising technique in production of mortars. (author)

  9. Producing Civil Society

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Feldt, Liv Egholm; Hein Jessen, Mathias

    Since the beginning of the 1990’s, civil society has attracted both scholarly and political interest as the ‘third sphere’ outside the state and the market not only a normatively privileged site of communication and ‘the public sphere’, but also as a resource for democratization processes...... and social cohesion, as well as a provider of welfare services from a welfare state in dire straits. However, such a view upholds a sharp distinction between the three sectors and their distinct logic. This article claims that the separation of spheres is a fundamental part of our ‘social imaginary......’ and as such dominates our way of thinking about civil society. Yet, this view hinders the understanding of how civil society is not a pre-existing or given sphere, but a sphere which is constantly produced both discursively, conceptually and practically.

  15. Re-thinking civil disobedience

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Theresa Züger

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This article points out a struggle of today’s societies with the traditional concepts of civil disobedience and stresses the need for reevaluation of the concept of civil disobedience for policy making and public discourse. Starting with a minimal definition of civil disobedience, the article introduces Hannah Arendt’s approach for a legitimisation of civil disobedience and discusses her ideas for digital actions, which are increasingly framed as digital forms of civil disobedience. Addressing WikiLeaks as an example of digital civil disobedience, the author problematises the internal secrecy of WikiLeaks and the focus on Julian Assange as a single decision-maker. Both aspects challenge Arendt’s understanding of legitimate civil disobedience. Even though traditional criteria of civil disobedience need to be revisited in the digital age, organisations or disobedience actors might themselves in their actions be well-advised to comply with the principles they fight for.

    1999-01-01

    A few million years ago, when primates moved from the east African forest to the savannah, they were already infected with endogenous viruses and occultly transmitted them to the prime Homo species. However it was much later with the building of the first large cities in Mesopotamia that interhuman viral transmission began in earnest. Spreading was further enhanced with the organization of the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Arab empires around the Mediterranean. Discovery of the New World in 1492 led to an unprecedented clash of civilizations and the destruction of pre-Columbian Indian civilizations. It also led to a rapid spread of viruses across the Atlantic Ocean with the emergence of yellow fever and appearance of smallpox and measles throughout the world. However the greatest opportunities for worldwide viral development have been created by our present, modern civilization. This fact is illustrated by epidemic outbreaks of human immunodeficiency virus, Venezuela hemorrhagic fever, Rift valley fever virus, and monkey pox virus. Close analysis underscores the major role of human intervention in producing these events.

    Full Text Available La OMS ha creado una Comisión de los Determinantes Sociales de la Salud que producirá su reporte en el 2008. Aunque el tema de los determinantes sociales (DSS de la salud no es nuevo, la nueva visibilidad global en el tema refleja el agotamiento del modelo de desarrollo neoliberal que ha agudizado la inequidad y consecuentemente hace resurgir el tema de la justicia social. Nuevos enfoques y evidencia ubican la inequidad en salud como resultado de la inequitativa distribución de los DSS. Procesos en curso como la globalización de signo neoliberal y el cambio climático agudizan las inequidades así como la exclusión en salud al actuar directa y desigualmente sobre los DSS. Algunos ejemplos de políticas publicas exitosas: Suecia, dado su particular contexto político-institucional ha desarrollado una política (intersectorial de salud publica cuyo objetivo es disminuir la inequidad diseñando estrategias participativas sobre sus DSS.

    Full Text Available New tools for management of waste generated by the Civil Construction have attracted attention and been the subject of several surveys conducted by this industry. Among these, recycling can be highlighted, as it provides the reduction of discarded volumes and the need to purchase natural raw material, resulting in significant economic gains and reduced environmental impact. This paper estimates the investments necessary to implement a medium-sized waste recycling plant to be loca- ted at east side of the city of São Paulo. This paper also brings comparisons between market prices of natural aggregates and recycled wastes produced by recycling plants and mines located in the cities of São Paulo, Guarulhos and Osasco, in order to establish a comparison between the two. To this end, this qualitative exploratory study presents a case study, in which they were technical visits to same-sized mills and quarries, desk research and interviews with managers in order to identify items essential for implementation of the plant under study. The results showed that the demand in the East Zone of São Paulo presents regarding the recycling of construction waste, confirming the viability of the studied plant. It was also observed that the market prices of recycled aggregates in the surveyed plants were lower than natural aggregates, demonstrating the economic feasibility of its use.

  15. How persistent is civilization growth?

    OpenAIRE

    Garrett, Timothy J.

    2011-01-01

    In a recent study (Garrett, 2011), I described theoretical arguments and empirical evidence showing how civilization evolution might be considered from a purely physical basis. One implication is that civilization exhibits the property of persistence in its growth. Here, this argument is elaborated further, and specific near-term forecasts are provided for key economic variables and anthropogenic CO2 emission rates at global scales. Absent some external shock, civilization wealth, energy cons...

Dentro desta área, deve-se ressaltar que a responsabilidade civil ao meio ambiente, é um assunto de importante relevância para o efetivo controle da depredação ambiental, permitindo que sejam alcançadas as metas propostas como condição de sobrevivência da espécie humana, ou seja, a conservação do meio ambiente e o desenvolvimento econômico social, visando desta maneira, permitir a qualidade e a continuação da vida. Existe o entendimento, que somente com educação ambiental e normas reguladoras fortes, como a penalidade de ter que indenizar quando praticar algum dano ao meio ambiente conseguirá atingir o objetivo maior de preservação. Necessitam-se além de uma mudança na legislação que responsabilize poluidores do meio ambiente, atribuindo-lhes sanções que inibam a prática de tal conduta ilícita e realizando assim, a aplicabilidade da justiça.Palavras-chave:Responsabilidade Civil; Responsabilidade; Meio Ambiente ABSTRACTThis article have objective to realize a analysis about civil responsibility evolution and your theories, subjective and objective apply environment.

  13. Lineage of global civil engineering. Global civil engineering no keifu

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Hashimoto, M

    1994-04-15

    This paper considers which way the global civil engineering should go in the future. Civil engineering has now a paradigm with a new dimension debuted as the global environmental problems are taken up specifically. Achieving the target of civil engineering requires a critical review that how the cost effect and efficiency discussions in only the dimensions of the conventional technologies and economies can be incorporated into the dimensions and measures of new fields to create the new horizons. Conceiving the relationship between civil engineered structures and environmental climate encounters the indispensable judgment criterion on how such social scientific conditions as weather, culture, religion, economy, and politics are combined to reach a judgment. The global civil engineering is desired to have the ideas and directional role to work on the ultimate assignment of environment and development called a global environmental problem analytically, comprehensively, innovatively and creatively as the civil engineering science, rather than as a mere existence of one area of the advanced civil engineering science. 5 refs., 1 tab.

    .Compromiso ciudadano y sociedad civil. Reflexión sobre el modelo rumano de sociedad civil poscomunistaSe trata en este artículo de unir la noción de sociedad civil a la noción de compromiso ciudadano, tomando como ejemplo la experiencia postcomunistas rumana. Si el contexto de la sociedad civil no concentra todas las modalidades del compromiso ciudadano, sigue siendo un espacio privilegiado para concretizar dicho compromiso. La cuestión que anima este artículo es simple: ¿como debe y puede ser analizado el compromiso del ciudadano de las nuevas democracias de Europa oriental y en particular de Rumania? Aunque esta interrogación nos parezca simple es en realidad mas compleja de lo que parece si tomamos en cuenta los problemas planteados por los conceptos de sociedad civil y de compromiso aquí utilizados pero también de la experiencia poscomunista a menudo considerada como realidad homogénea en lugar de ser analizada como realidad heteróclita.

    Feliciane Andrade Brehm

    Full Text Available O lodo de fosfatização gerado no tratamento de efluentes do processo de revestimento fosfático de aço é um resíduo sólido Classe IIA - Não Inerte, geralmente disposto em aterro industrial. Uma alternativa para o tratamento de resíduos é a estabilização por solidificação em matrizes cerâmicas e à base de cimento Portland. Isto permite a reciclagem do resíduo como matéria-prima para a construção civil, diminui os custos de tratamento e disposição final e reduz áreas de aterros. O presente estudo tem como objetivo verificar a estabilização por solidificação de lodo de fosfatização em matrizes de cerâmica vermelha, empregada na produção de blocos cerâmicos de alvenaria, e em concretos de cimento Portland. Foram realizadas caracterizações dos materiais envolvidos e ensaios de lixiviação e solubilização das matrizes estudadas com e sem a incorporação do lodo. Os resultados indicam que há uma tendência à estabilização por solidificação dos parâmetros avaliados tanto na matriz cerâmica quanto na matriz de cimento Portland.

    Full Text Available O processo de soldagem a arco submerso é empregado em grande escala na indústria metal-mecânica. No entanto, este processo gera enorme quantidade de resíduo de escória. Em geral, este resíduo vem sendo disposto em lixões. Nos últimos anos, a área de cerâmica tem atraído grande atenção para reciclagem de resíduos industriais. Neste trabalho foi feito um estudo objetivando avaliar a influência do resíduo de escória de fluxo de soldagem sobre as propriedades tecnológicas de argamassa de múltiplo uso e cerâmica vermelha para uso na construção civil. O resíduo de escória de fluxo de soldagem foi caracterizado em relação à composição química, difração de raios X, análise do tamanho de partículas e massa específica real. A argamassa foi preparada com a incorporação de resíduo de escória de soldagem em substituição total de areia natural (agregado miúdo tradicional. As argamassas foram caracterizadas em termos de consistência, densidade de massa no estado fresco, teor de ar incorporado e resistência à compressão. Análise microestrutural das argamassas foi feita via MEV. Foi preparada também uma série de misturas argila/resíduo contendo até 10% em peso de resíduo de escória de fluxo de soldagem. As peças cerâmicas foram preparadas por prensagem uniaxial e queimadas entre 850 ºC e 950 ºC. As peças queimadas foram caracterizadas quanto à retração linear, absorção de água, porosidade aparente, massa específica aparente e tensão de ruptura à flexão. Os resultados mostraram que o resíduo de escória de fluxo de soldagem pode substituir areia natural como agregado miúdo em argamassa de múltiplo uso. Além do mais, o resíduo de escória pode ser incorporado em cerâmica vermelha (tijolos e blocos cerâmicos como substituto parcial de argila natural.The submerged-arc welding process is widely used in the metal-mechanic industry.

  18. Civil liberties and nuclear terrorism

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Goldberg, S.

    1987-01-01

    The importance of preventing nuclear terrorism is so great that it is easy to believe that the usual concern with civil liberties must take a back seat. But it is precisely when emergencies are invoked that the authors must not forget the importance of freedoms. Emergency powers are easily abused, and, even in the absence of abuse, mistakes can be made. It is hard to understand why they care about civil liberties if every suspect is guilty, every wiretap is necessary, and every search is justified. But sometimes suspects are innocent, wiretaps are used for political ends, and searches disrupt lives to no end. Civil liberties do not exist in a vacuum. If society is destroyed, civil liberties are likely to be destroyed as well. Virtually every legal doctrine this study addresses involves a recognition that individual rights must be balanced against valid social needs. The civil liberties focus on here fall under the general headings of freedom of speech and association, privacy, due process rights for suspects, and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. One essential point applied to all these areas: although a counterterrorist activity is legal, that does not mean the activity has no impact on civil liberties. It may be legal, for example, to have a massive federal police force that provides hundreds of guards for every shipment of plutonium. Even so, that procedure still raises civil liberties concerns, since many Americans would feel less free in a society of that type

  19. Material civilization: things and society.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dant, Tim

    2006-06-01

    This paper argues that although classical sociology has largely overlooked the importance of social relations with the material world in shaping the form of society, Braudel's concept of 'material civilization' is a useful way to begin to understand the sociological significance of this relationship. The limitations of Braudel's historical and general concept can be partially overcome with Elias's analysis of the connection between 'technization' and 'civilization' that allows for both a civilizing and a de-civilizing impact of emergent forms of material relation that both lengthen and shorten the chains of interdependence between the members of a society. It is suggested that the concept of the 'morality of things' employed by a number of commentators is useful in summarizing the civilizing effects of material objects and addressing their sociological significance. From the sociology of consumption the idea of materiality as a sign of social relationships can be drawn, and from the sociology of technology the idea of socio-technical systems and actor-networks can contribute to the understanding of material civilization. It is argued that the concept of 'material capital' can usefully summarize the variable social value of objects but to understand the complexity of material civilization as it unfolds in everyday life, an analysis of 'material interaction' is needed. Finally the paper suggests some initial themes and issues apparent in contemporary society that the sociological study of material civilization might address; the increased volume, functional complexity and material specificity of objects and the increased social complexity, autonomy and substitutability that is entailed. A theory of 'material civilization' is the first step in establishing a sociology of objects.

    Full Text Available El texto describe la concepción del imperio chino y la estructura de gobierno que lo sostenía: la burocracia de los eruditos-funcionarios (mandarines, una clase numéricamente pequeña que ostentaba todo el poder y era la mayor propietaria de grandes extensiones de tierra. Todas las funciones de administración y mediación estaban a cargo de esos funcionarios, quienes eran preparados según los principios filosóficos del confucianismo y ocuparon una posición estratégica desde la que influían en toda política del gobierno y aseguraban así su permanencia. De ese modo se estableció un servicio civil de carrera de por vida, que a la vez que gobernaba y administraba, daba al régimen imperial la sanción racional y ética que necesitaba para el ejercicio de su autoridad. El secreto de su continuidad y supervivencia estaba en el sistema de exámenes para reclutar funcionarios para el Estado.

  7. High technology and civil rights

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lerche, P.

    1982-01-01

    Court decision reflect the widely felt lack of clarity about the present legal situation in the field of high technology. This confusion is also due to the fact that this legal situation is surrounded by civil rights constellations, which have more and more eroded the contours of our legal system in recent years: Today, civil rights are no longer specific, well-definable bulwarks for the citizen, but are more and more frequently interpreted by the supreme courts as sources of procedural requirements with more or less certain often vague consequences. This shifting of the accent in civil rights towards procedural matters is due to an innate logical necessity, however: The same civil right considered in the same situation, e.g., in planning for high technology, may give rise to very different, even contradictory individual claims. Therefore, one of the main modern objectives of civil rights becoming more and more apparent is the need to reconcile conflicting positions, which makes civil rights a driving force in balancing interests in the easiest possible way. Yet, one of the main deficiencies in this rapidly growing procedural approach is the one-sidedness often to be found as a result of isolated, punctual actions. This misses the objective of achieving adequate harmonization. As examples of such one-sided, isolated civil rights approaches, legal opinions are cited on the so-called public participation (possibility to object for those concerned) in the licensing procedures under the German Atomic Energy Act and for protection against environmental impacts. Quity rightly, this participation of the public is interpreted as an advance protection of civil rights. However, its consequences quite often are exaggerated. (orig.) [de

    Full Text Available O concreto material de construção mais amplamente utilizado está constantemente evoluindo. Nos últimos anos, muitas pesquisas têm sido desenvolvidas e a busca por materiais com desempenho mecânico e de durabilidade cada vez maiores tem sido o alvo dos pesquisadores da tecnologia dos concretos. Tais materiais permitem que os projetistas e arquitetos o usem eficientemente em edifícios altos, além de serem esteticamente mais interessantes. Para tanto, concretos obtidos a partir da engenharia de microestrutura são necessários. Por serem compósitos constituídos de partículas com granulometria fina (tamanho máximo Concrete, the most widely used construction material, is constantly developing. During the recent years, several researches have been carried out and the search for materials with higher mechanical and durability performance has been the objective of the concrete technology area. These materials allow designers and the architects to use them efficiently in high slender and innovative buildings. Therefore, in order to attain this target, microstructural engineering is required. Being composites constituted of fine size distribution particles (maximum size < 4750 μm and low water/cement ratio, these concretes present dense matrix by packing optimization of the granular materials, whereas the suitable workability is the result of particle dispersion promoted by adding chemical admixtures to the mixture. Moreover, they incorporate mineral additives which are, mostly, industrial by-products, resulting in a great environmental benefit: industrial residues recycling, pollutant emissions reduction during cement production, raw materials preservation and energy saving. Thus, in present paper, a review related to the concepts of particle dispersion and packing was carried out, addressed for special concretes applied in the civil engineering field.

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available No Brasil, os movimentos sociais pela redemocratização recente e a Constituição Federal de 1988 possibilitaram o fortalecimento de novos atores sociais tais como os Conselhos Gestores, as experiências de Orçamento Participativo na gestão da cidade, os Fóruns temáticos e as Organizações não Governamentais. Estes atores, além dos movimentos sociais étnicos, de gênero, ligados ao meio ambiente, de trabalhadores e os populares, por exemplo, têm inaugurado novos formatos de participação social e possibilitado a construção e ocupação do espaço público em que as demandas por justiça social ganham legitimidade. Historicamente, na sociedade brasileira, a relação entre Estado e sociedade civil não está mediada - ou é mediada de forma muito insuficiente - por políticas públicas e pelos direitos decorrentes (ausência de mediação aprofundada pelo processo de mundialização neoliberal em curso. Isto tem provocado a sobreposição e o agravamento da subalternidade e exclusão sociais tanto de viés econômico e de classe social quanto de viés sócio-cultural. Mas, num movimento contraditório, tem trazido, também, a possibilidade de que as novas configurações da participação social se apresentem como alternativas para (re construção de identidades elaços sociais. Procuramos argumentar, portanto, que, numa sociedade com as características históricas da brasileira, a ocupação e participação nos espaços públicos e nas instituições sociais são alternativas para a (re construção de laços sociais e identitáriosna perspectiva da cidadania e da civilidade nas relações societárias.

    1963-01-01

    An international Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage was adopted in Vienna on 19 May 1963 by a sixty-nation conference convened by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The Convention, which is subject to ratification by the States signing it, will come into force three months after the deposit of the fifth instrument of ratification. The Convention is designee only to establish minimum rules regarding civil liability for nuclear damage; it may thus well be described as a framework convention, the main provisions of which represent the essential common denomination acceptable to as many States as possible. It leaves wide scope for national legislation and regional arrangements with a view to implementing these provisions The Convention does not purport to create a uniform civil law in this field, but it contains the minimal essential for protection of the public and forms the legal basis for uniform world-wide liability rules

  18. On civil engineering disasters and their mitigation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Xie, Lili; Qu, Zhe

    2018-01-01

    Civil engineering works such as buildings and infrastructure are the carriers of human civilization. They are, however, also the origins of various types of disasters, which are referred to in this paper as civil engineering disasters. This paper presents the concept of civil engineering disasters, their characteristics, classification, causes, and mitigation technologies. Civil engineering disasters are caused primarily by civil engineering defects, which are usually attributed to improper selection of construction site, hazard assessment, design and construction, occupancy, and maintenance. From this viewpoint, many so-called natural disasters such as earthquakes, strong winds, floods, landslides, and debris flows are substantially due to civil engineering defects rather than the actual natural hazards. Civil engineering disasters occur frequently and globally and are the most closely related to human beings among all disasters. This paper emphasizes that such disasters can be mitigated mainly through civil engineering measures, and outlines the related objectives and scientific and technological challenges.

    France and the USA wish to cooperate in order to promote an international regime of civil liability in order to give a fair compensation to victims of nuclear accidents as it is recommended by IAEA. On the other hand the European Commission has launched a consultation to see the necessity or not to harmonize all the civil liability regimes valid throughout Europe. According to the Commission the potential victims of nuclear accidents would not receive equal treatment at the European scale in terms of insurance cover and compensation which might distort competition in the nuclear sector.

Integrated management systems started in the nineties as an evolution of existing quality systems, environmental management and industrial safety. As background of embedded systems MRP (Manufacturig Resource Planning, MAP (Manufacturig Automation Protocol and TOP (Technical Office Protocol are counted. Objetive: The aim of the project focuses on identifying the relationship and existing points of convergence between ISO 9001: 2008, 14001: 2004 and OHSAS 18001: 2007 for the implementation of the integrated management system (IMS in civil engineering companies with their economic activity in the Colombian construction sector. Methodology: An analysis of the structure of each of the three standards under study is performed and the points of convergence and divergence are identified in order to find a main structure that works for managers of construction companies as input to make decisions to implement integrated management systems. Results: As a main product is obtained a comparative table that allows articulate the three standards to further characterize under the Deming cycle, or PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act. Convergence and complementarity between standards issues are identified and the minimum documentary platform for integrated management system is established. Conclusions: The integrated construction companies systems are alternative productive and organizational operation characteristics that give visibility, credibility, competitiveness and profitability for these companies to compete in dynamic business scenarios and ensure compliance with contractual commitments under highly demanding global markets

On the national scene, politics has become permeated with incivility. It now appears that Americans have been naive about their ability and willingness to engage in civil discourse and compromise. How can…

    The manifestations of climate change can result in humanitarian impacts that reverse progress in poverty- reduction, create shortages of food and resources, lead to migration, and ultimately result in civil violence and conflict. Within the continent of Africa, we have found that environmentally-related variables are either the cause or the confounding factor for over 80% of the civil violence events during the last 10 years. Using predictive climate models and land-use data, we are able to identify populations in Africa that are likely to experience the most severe climate-related shocks. Through geospatial analysis, we are able to overlay these areas of high risk with assessments of both the local population's resiliency and the region's capacity to respond to climate shocks should they occur. The net result of the analysis is the identification of locations that are becoming particularly vulnerable to future civil violence events (vulnerability hotspots) as a result of the manifestations of climate change. For each population group, over 600 social, economic, political, and environmental indicators are integrated statistically to measures the vulnerability of African populations to environmental change. The indicator time-series are filtered for data availability and redundancy, broadly ordered into four categories (social, political, economic and environmental), standardized and normalized. Within each category, the dominant modes of variability are isolated by principal component analysis and the loadings of each component for each variable are used to devise composite index scores. Comparisons of past vulnerability with known environmentally-related conflicts demonstrates the role that such vulnerability hotspot maps can play in evaluating both the potential for, and the significance of, environmentally-related civil violence events. Furthermore, the analysis reveals the major variables that are responsible for the population's vulnerability and therefore

  1. Sociedad civil: una concepción radical

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Domingo García Marzá

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo tiene como objetivos presentar un concepto de sociedad civil desde una perspectiva crítica, una perspectiva que pueda dar razón del potencial de cambio y transformación social que encierra este ámbito de la interacción social. Con este fin, se adentra en primer lugar en la difícil relación entre democracia y sociedad civil, analizándola desde el paso de las democracias participativas a las democracias deliberativas. El carácter global de la sociedad civil y los problemas de realización práctica nos conducen, en segundo lugar, a la discusión de la propuesta de autores como J. Habermas y M. Kaldor, destacando las insuficiencias de sus respectivos enfoques. A continuación, y en discusión con los trabajos de J. Keane, se presenta una propuesta de definición y fundamentación del concepto de sociedad civil apoyado en una hermenéutica crítica, capaz de justificar su núcleo moral como ética de la sociedad civil y, al mismo tiempo, de sus posibilidades reales de aplicación. Por último, se propone el concepto de recursos morales para reconstruir las características básicas que definen a los recursos propios de la sociedad civil.The objective of this paper is to present a concept of civil society from a critical perspective that can explain the potential for change and social transformation encompassed within this sphere of social interaction. To this end, we first explore the difficult relationship between democracy and civil society, through an analysis of the shift from participative to deliberative democracy. The global character of civil society and the problems of its practical achievement lead us, in a second stage, to discuss proposals from authors such as J. Habermas and M. Kaldor, and to uncover the inadequacies of their respective approaches. This is followed by a proposal, arising from debate on the works of J. Keane, in which the concept of civil society is defined and grounded

    Tonias, Elias C

    2016-01-01

    This book provides a multitude of geometric constructions usually encountered in civil engineering and surveying practice.  A detailed geometric solution is provided to each construction as well as a step-by-step set of programming instructions for incorporation into a computing system. The volume is comprised of 12 chapters and appendices that may be grouped in three major parts: the first is intended for those who love geometry for its own sake and its evolution through the ages, in general, and, more specifically, with the introduction of the computer. The second section addresses geometric features used in the book and provides support procedures used by the constructions presented. The remaining chapters and the appendices contain the various constructions. The volume is ideal for engineering practitioners in civil and construction engineering and allied areas.

  5. Claims in civil engineering contracts

    CERN Document Server

    Speirs, N A

    1999-01-01

    This paper considers claims arising during civil engineering construction contracts. The meaning of the word 'claim' is considered and its possible implications for additional cost and time to completion. The conditions of the construction contract selected will influence the risk apportionment between contractor and client and the price offered by the contractor for the work. Competitive bidding constraints and profit margins in the construction industry, however, may also influence the price offered. This in turn can influence the likelihood of claims arising. The client from his point of view is concerned to complete the work within an agreed time and budget. The circumstances under which claims may arise are reviewed in relation to typical conditions of contract. These circumstances are then related to the CERN LHC civil works. Ways of avoiding claims, where this is possible, are considered. Finally, the means of evaluation of claims and their settlement are considered.

    The question as to whether civil air crews and frequent air passengers ought to be classified among the group of occupationally exposed persons has in principle been decided by the recommendations adopted by the ICRP, the competent bodies of the EU, and national authorities. Measurements for more information on the radiation fields involved are planned. The German Radiation Protection Office (BfS) recently published a statement on dose commitments, assuming a maximum annual dose of approx. 8 mSv in addition to the mean value already determined. Legal provisions, which ought to be adopted also on EU level since civil aviation is a transboundary traffic system, have yet to come. (orig./HP) [de

    This paper describes the main areas of civil forensic psychiatry (FP) and the skills required by psychiatric experts. Some specific areas of civil FP are discussed, including tort law reform, reliability of psychiatric evidence, contentious psychiatric disorders, and the many domains of civil FP. Civil FP is an important sub-specialty component of forensic psychiatry that requires greater emphasis in the training and continuing education of psychiatrists. A process of accrediting psychiatrists as having competency in advanced civil FP may be of value.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines the exclusion of specific means of evidence as instruments for determining the object of evidence, as well as the taking of evidence in the framework of the Croatian civil procedure law. The introduction lays the grounds for classifying and qualifying exclusion of evidence (general, special; absolute, relative; removable, irremovable; direct, indirect, after which greater attention is paid to the so called absolute and relative type; exclusionary evidence of the direct relative type pertaining to the establishing of facts, and evidence dismissals. With regard to the indirect relative type, the paper examines exclusionary evidence concerning the object of evidence. The remainder of the paper focuses on illegally obtained evidence, while outlining the constitutional, statutory, judicature and doctrinaire premises of bearing for such evidence. Subsequently, the question of evidence obtained in violation of the Constitutional guarantee of respect and legal protection of private and family life, dignity, reputation and honour, as well as evidence obtained by breach of the Constitutional guarantee of freedom and secrecy of correspondence and all other forms of communication, and in violation of the right to safety and privacy of personal data, are discussed too. In addition, the paper analyses the institutions of preclusion of evidence and the so called informative evidence. Concluding, the author points to a lacking regulation of inadmissible evidence within the Croatian civil procedure law, underlining the need to determine de lege ferenda legal requirements with a view to operationalizing inadmissible evidence within the Croatian civil procedure law.

    D. Van Loggerenberg

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The South African adversarial system of civil procedure in the High Court owes its origin to that of England. As with all civil procedural systems, the South African system is not stagnant. Its primary sources, namely Acts of Parliament and rules of court, are constantly amended in an attempt to meet the changing needs of society. Court delay and costinefficient procedural mechanisms, however, contribute to public dismay. The High Court, in the exercise of its inherent power to regulate its process, do so with the purpose of enhancing access to justice. The advantage of the system lies in the fact that it is not cast in stone but could, subject to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, be developed to make it more accessible to the public whilst protecting the public’s fundamental rights entrenched in the Constitution and, in this regard, particularly the right to afair trial embedded in sec. 34 of the Constitution. This contribution gives an overview of the system with reference to the court structure, the judiciary, the process in the High Court and its underlying principles, appeals, class actions and alternative civil dispute resolution mechanisms.

This contribution proposes to clarify this concept from the viewpoint of relational sociology, which avoids both methodological individualism and holism. Subsequently, it argues that such goods can be produced only by specific social subjects, which the Author calls ‘relational subjects’. Relying upon many theoretical and empirical researches, the paper explains in which sense and in which way relational subjects, and the goods they generate, can contribute to making civil society more robust: that is, no longer the typically capitalist society of the market, but an ‘associational’ society able to sustain a mature democracy.

Al ritmo de las conmemoraciones decenales de su estallido (1996/2006, se ha desarrollado una verdadera marea memorial nutrida tanto por la apertura de archivos escritos y audiovisuales como por la desinhibición de los nietos de exiliados condicionados durante tanto tiempo por la historia de la derrota de sus padres y abuelos. Animan el debate las tribulaciones de la vida política española actual, entre neofranquismo, republicanismo y nacionalismos centralistas y/o regionales. Por haber sido la unica vía de salida, Francia —metropolis y África del norte— se vio más involucrada que cualquier otro país al recibir la aplastante mayoría de los exiliados. Aunque los verdaderos especialistas en dicha guerra son poco numerosos, todo un mundillo se ha otorgado el derecho y la capacidad de escribir sobre ella como descendientes de exiliados o activistas políticos, sobre todo en el sur de Francia. Todos los medios se ven afectados: desde la literatura estrictamente histórica al internet. De las obras eruditas, de vulgarización —también para la juventud— a las memorias arrancadas al olvido; de las actas de los coloquios a los tebeos; de los álbumes fotográficos a los documentales (siempre pro republicanos.

  6. Civil Justice: Lay Judges in the EU Countries

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Lay judges fulfill important functions for the justice system of a country. In the European Union member states, scholars have analysed the use of lay judges in criminal cases. However, little is known about lay participation in civil justice. The paper introduces commonly cited reasons to have lay judges as well as the principal forms of lay participation and then surveys the EU countries for its implementation in civil cases. Mixed tribunals, involving lay judges under the leadership of a professional judge, are relatively frequent. Several countries have special labour courts or commercial courts with lay members and others have single lay judges, or all-lay judge panels. Roughly a third of the 28 EU member states have no lay participation in civil justice but only three of those have no lay judges in any branch of the courts. Almost all the reasons for including lay decision makers are served somehow by the existing forms, including providing different experiences and perhaps expert knowledge. The article concludes, citing non-EU states and lay participation in criminal and administrative courts as further evidence, that lay judges in one form or another are an element of European legal systems. Los jueces legos cumplen funciones importantes para el sistema de justicia de un país. En los Estados miembro de la Unión Europea, académicos han analizado el uso de jueces legos en casos criminales.

    Full Text Available This paper looks into common European and national rules regulating electronic communication in legal matters. Such form of communication in legal matters expedites the procedure. It is also pointed out that electronic communication between the court and the parties to the proceedings, as well as third parties, is conducted through registries, regulated by special regulations, for filing written submissions of the parties and decisions of the court. Legislation regulating electronic communication is intended for litigation in commercial matters. European and national rules do not exclude the possibility of electronic communication in non-commercial litigation provided there is an express consent of the parties to such communication. Although steps towards digitalization have been taken in the Republic of Serbia, legislation regulating electronic service of documents, communication in civil litigation, is still missing. The Civil Procedure Law does not have a separate section regulating the electronic communication in legal matters. However, it cannot be said that the CPC does not set basic principles regulating this form of communication in legal matters.

Para cada tipo de relación se evaluó la densidad y jerarquización de la red interna y de las externas, y se detectaron las organizaciones más sobresalientes. Los resultados indican que entre mayores sean los costos de las ligas, su densidad o frecuencia disminuye. La red hermosillense tiene una estructura jerárquica y las mayores densidades en las relaciones de información, apoyo y materiales; mientras que para los recursos financieros, esta característica se observa en las ligas de organismos gubernamentales hacia los civiles.

  14. The role of organized civil society in tobacco control in Latin America and the Caribbean El papel de la sociedad civil organizada en el control del tabaco en Latinoamérica y el Caribe

    Full Text Available Civil society has been the engine that has permitted many of the accomplishments seen in tobacco control in Latin America and the Caribbean. However, the role of civil society is not clearly understood. Civil society plays five main roles: advocate, coalition builder, provider of evidence-based information, watchdog and service provider. Some of these roles are played weakly by civil society in the region and should be encouraged to support beneficial societal change. Civil society working in tobacco control has evolved over the years to now become more professionalized. The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use have brought about significant change with positive and negative consequences. Strengthening civil society not only supports the tobacco control movement but it provides competencies that may be used in many ways to promote change in democratic societies.La sociedad civil ha sido el motor que ha permitido muchos logros en el control del tabaco en Latinoamérica y el Caribe. Sin embargo, no se comprende bien el papel que juega. La sociedad civil tiene cinco roles principales: abogar, construir coaliciones, proveer información basada en evidencia, ser perro guardián y proveer servicios. Algunos de estos roles se juegan débilmente y deben ser promovidos para apoyar cambios benéficos en la sociedad. La sociedad civil ha evolucionado a través de los años en el control del tabaco y ahora se ha profesionalizado más. El Convenio Marco para el Control del Tabaco (CMCT de la OMS y la iniciativa Bloomberg para Reducir el Uso del Tabaco han traído consigo cambios significativos con consecuencias positivas y negativas. El fortalecimiento de la sociedad civil no sólo significa un beneficio para el movimiento del control del tabaco sino que también provee las competencias que sirven de muchas formas para promover el cambio en las sociedades democráticas.

  16. Civil defense should be mandatory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kearney, C.H.

    1985-01-01

    In this paper, the author exposes myths about the effects of nuclear weapons so that the U.S. can begin the necessary task of a mandatory civil defense program. An all-out nuclear war between Russia and the United States would be the worst catastrophe in history, a tragedy so huge it is difficult to comprehend. Even so, it would be far from the end of human life on earth. The dangers from nuclear weapons have been distorted and exaggerated for varied reasons. These exaggerations have become demoralizing myths, believed by millions of Americans. The author has found that many people see no sense in talking about details of survival skills. Only after they have begun to question the truth of these myths do they become interested, under normal peacetime conditions, in acquiring nuclear war survival skills. The author examines the most harmful of the myths about nuclear war dangers, along with some of the grim facts

    Full Text Available We debated in this article the civil liability for environmental damages as stipulated in ourlegislation with reference to Community law. The theory of legal liability in environmental law is basedon the duty of all citizens to respect and protect the environment. Considering the importance ofenvironment in which we live, the liability for environmental damages is treated by the Constitution as aprinciple and a fundamental obligation. Many human activities cause environmental damages and, in linewith the principle of sustainable development, they should be avoided. However, when this is notpossible, they must be regulated (by criminal or administrative law in order to limit their adverse effectsand, according to the polluter pays principle, to internalize in advance their externalities (through taxes,insurances or other forms of financial security products. Communication aims to analyze these issues andlegal regulations dealing with the issue of liability for environmental damage.

The results obtained in the simulations of the algebraic PI and of the diffuse PID, established that the second one improved the follow up indexes and reduced the starting period and the fuel consumption. [Espanol] La presente tesis trata sobre la rehabilitacion del sistema de control para las turbinas de gas W501 de la Central de Ciclo Combinado de Gomez Palacio, de Durango, Mexico. La primera parte del desarrollo trata sobre un proceso de reingenieria de software aplicado al sistema de control digital de las turbinas de gas de la central de ciclo combinado de Comez Palacio. Este proceso fue desarrollado utilizando conceptos de varias ramas de la ingenieria: a) involucro los conocimientos de la ingenieria de software, utilizando metodos formales para el analisis del sistema original y el rediseno del nuevo sistema: b) se utilizo la ingenieria de control en el analisis de diversas estrategias de control y automatizacion utilizados para el control de turbinas de gas, con el objetivo de verificar el tipo de instrucciones y rutinas presentes dentro del software. El producto final de esta etapa es un sistema programatico modularizado, basado en diseno estructurado, que es funcionalmente un espejo del sistema original. El sistema obtenido esta conformado por cinco modulos principales los cuales se basan en un modelo propuesto originalmente para control por lotes (batch) :i) Interfaz Hombre Maquina, ii) Control Regulatorio, iii) Protecciones, iv) Secuencias logicas y v) Supervision. La segunda etapa de desarrollo fue la mejora del control de velocidad de la turbina. Cuando se controla una unidad turbogas, debe tomarse en cuenta varias etapas de operacion tales como el arranque, el control en estado estable y el apagado. El comportamiento real de la turbina durante el arranque, y principalmente el gran numero de retrocesos

  19. Cyber threats within civil aviation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Heitner, Kerri A.

    Existing security policies in civil aviation do not adequately protect against evolving cyber threats. Cybersecurity has been recognized as a top priority among some aviation industry leaders. Heightened concerns regarding cyber threats and vulnerabilities surround components utilized in compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen) implementation. Automated Dependent Surveillance-B (ADS-B) and Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) have both been exploited through the research of experienced computer security professionals. Civil aviation is essential to international infrastructure and if its critical assets were compromised, it could pose a great risk to public safety and financial infrastructure. The purpose of this research was to raise awareness of aircraft system vulnerabilities in order to provoke change among current national and international cybersecurity policies, procedures and standards. Although the education of cyber threats is increasing in the aviation industry, there is not enough urgency when creating cybersecurity policies. This project intended to answer the following questions: What are the cyber threats to ADS-B of an aircraft in-flight? What are the cyber threats to EFB? What is the aviation industry's response to the issue of cybersecurity and in-flight safety? ADS-B remains unencrypted while the FAA's mandate to implement this system is rapidly approaching. The cyber threat of both portable and non-portable EFB's have received increased publicity, however, airlines are not responding quick enough (if at all) to create policies for the use of these devices. Collectively, the aviation industry is not being proactive enough to protect its aircraft or airport network systems. That is not to say there are not leaders in cybersecurity advancement. These proactive organizations must set the standard for the future to better protect society and it's most reliable form of transportation.

  15. Expanding Advanced Civilizations in the Universe

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gros, C.

    The 1950 lunch-table remark by Enrico Fermi `Where is everybody' has started intensive scientific and philosophical discussions about what we call nowadays the `Fermi paradox': If there had been ever a single advanced civilization in the cosmological history of our galaxy, dedicated to expansion, it would have had plenty of time to colonize the entire galaxy via exponential growth. No evidence of present or past alien visits to earth are known to us, leading to the standard conclusion that no advanced expanding civilization has ever existed in the milky-way. This conclusion rest fundamentally on the ad-hoc assumption, that any alien civilizations dedicated to expansion at one time would remain dedicated to expansions forever. Considering our limited knowledge about alien civilizations we need however to relax this basic assumption. Here we show that a substantial and stable population of expanding advanced civilization might consequently exist in our galaxy.

  1. Colon cancer: a civilization disorder.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Watson, Alastair J M; Collins, Paul D

    2011-01-01

    Colorectal cancer arises in individuals with acquired or inherited genetic predisposition who are exposed to a range of risk factors. Many of these risk factors are associated with affluent Western societies. More than 95% of colorectal cancers are sporadic, arising in individuals without a significant hereditary risk. Geographic variation in the incidence of colorectal cancer is considerable with a higher incidence observed in the West. Environmental factors contribute substantially to this variation. A number of these risk factors are associated with a Western lifestyle and could be considered a product of 'civilization'. Recently, smoking has been recognized as a risk factor. Energy consumption also influences colorectal cancer risk, with obesity increasing risk and exercise reducing risk. However, the strongest contribution to environmental risk for colorectal cancer is dietary. Consumption of fat, alcohol and red meat is associated with an increased risk. Fresh fruit and vegetables and dietary fibre may be protective. Much has been learnt recently about the molecular pathogenesis of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer always arises in the context of genomic instability. There is inactivation of the tumour suppressor genes adenomatous polyposis coli, p53, transforming growth factor-β, activation of oncogene pathways including K-ras, and activation of the cyclooxygenase-2, epidermal growth factor receptor and vascular endothelial growth factor pathways. The mechanisms by which some environmental factors modify the mutation risk in these pathways have been described. Copyright © 2011 S. Karger AG, Basel.

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available In the Latin American context, the Dominican Republic displays high levels of civic engagement and political activism, yet they have not translated into a civil society that is able to exercise considerable influence in reforming the political system or enhancing democracy. Building on this observation, this article explores two questions. The first is if there is tendency toward dual participation in civic and political organizations, which reduces civil society’s ability to pressure political parties and the State. The second refers to the nature of the connections that civil society participants have with the State and with political parties. The analysis demonstrates that an important segment of the population that participates in civic associations also participates in political parties and in clientelist networks.República Dominicana registra un alto nivel de asociacionismo social y activismo político en el contexto latinoamericano. Esto, sin embargo, no se ha traducido en mayor capacidad de la sociedad civil dominicana para reformar el sistema político y mejorar la democracia. Con este planteamiento de fondo, se exploran dos preguntas. La primera es si existe una tendencia a la coparticipación en las organizaciones sociales y políticas que reduce la capacidad de presión de la sociedad civil sobre los partidos y el Estado. La segunda refiere a la naturaleza del vínculo de los participantes en organizaciones de la sociedad civil con el Estado y los partidos. El análisis muestra el involucramiento de un segmento de participantes en actividades cívicas, también en actividades partidarias y en redes clientelares.

    The train crash of Bad Aibling/Germany in February 2016 and the terrorist attacks of the recent years in Europe have demonstrated the urgent need to be prepared for such disastrous events. Disaster preparedness and disaster control are very important governmental duties, as are civil protection and civil defense. In Germany the responsibility for those tasks are divided between the 16 "Länder" and the Federation. While the Federation takes care of the civil protection and disaster assistance, the Länder are responsible for disaster control. The presented article focuses on these issues and gives valuable insights into the German system of disaster control and civil protection with a focus on health protection.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2177-7055.2017v38n75p105 Este artigo analisa o caráter indissociável da responsabilidade civil e da sustentabilidade a partir dos novos paradigmas de ressarcimento, tecendo críticas ao sistema clássico de compensação, insuficiente para a promoção da justiça ambiental. Ancorado no método hipotético-dedutivo, assevera-se o caráter normativo da responsabilidade civil, que passa a apresentar, implicitamente, função regulatória de condutas, sob a rubrica de dano moral genérico. Demonstra-se, ao fim, que o atual paradigma de responsabilização, provido de função exclusivamente ressarcitória, não apresenta grau satisfatório de proteção ao Meio Ambiente.

  18. O movimento civil-militar de 1964 e os intelectuais

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Luís Sanfelice

    Full Text Available Este estudo deseja captar no movimento da história, em uma conjuntura determinada, tensões que opuseram diferentes sujeitos sociais dos anos de 1970, no Brasil. Em um dos pólos localiza-se o pensamento expresso pelos primeiros governantes do movimento civil-militar que ocuparam o aparelho de Estado em 1964. Humberto Castelo Branco, presidente da República, Flávio Suplicy de Lacerda, ministro da Educação e Cultura, e Raymundo Moniz de Aragão, com seus pronunciamentos no V Fórum Universitário, encarregaram-se de transmitir o pensamento do governo à sociedade. Na seqüência, em curto espaço de tempo, os reflexos apareceriam no aparato legal da reforma universitária consentida. O contraponto à visão oficial encontra-se, para fins deste trabalho, em um texto da época de autoria de Florestan Fernandes e que resultou da conferência proferida na abertura do I Fórum de Professores, realizado no Rio de Janeiro em 1968. Espera-se, analisando o conflito ideológico, alcançar uma compreensão crítica mais acurada do movimento civil-militar de 1964 e das suas relações com diferentes intelectuais.

This is most robust at the sec...

  9. Civil Society, Democratic Space, and Social Work

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Neelmani Jaysawal

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available Civil Society envisages the growth of civilization in a way that the society is in “civilized form.” It has been prominent in Social science since time immemorial. Till 18th century, it was synonymous with the state or political society. It was more or less direct translation of Cicero’s Societas’ Civilis and Aristotle’s Koinonia politike. According to Karl Marx, “Civil Society embraces the whole material intercourse of individuals within a definite stage of development of productive forces.” Civil Society is an arena where modern man legitimately gratifies his self-interest and develops his individuality, but also learns the value of group action, social solidarity which educates him for citizenship and equips him to participate in the political sphere of the state. It provides “networks of civic engagement” within which reciprocity is learned and enforced, trust is generated. An active and diverse civil society plays a valuable role in advancement of democracy. It seeks to ensure that citizen’s interests are taken seriously. The social work intervention may not be democratically envisaged until it is promulgated by civic engagement through Civil Society. Methodology: This is a descriptive study which consists of secondary source of data collection based on reports, books, periodic journals, web-based articles. There have been utilized three case studies for reaching the findings of study. This article will highlight on role of civil society in providing democratic space and assisting social workers to ensure inclusive growth through conglomeration of state and individuals.

  10. Protection of personality rights in civil law

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Simonović Ivana

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Personality rights have long been described as the youngest member of the civil law family of absolute subjective (individual civil rights. By establishing these rights, an individual is guaranteed full and direct legal authority and control over one's personal assets, which include the most important human values such as: life, integrity, dignity and privacy. The ultimate importance of these personal assets is supported by appropriate legal protection of personality rights, which have been guaranteed in numerous provisions of constitutional law, civil law, criminal law and administrative law. The legal protection of personality rights stems from the understanding that a human being cannot be reduced to a biological entity; being part of the community, man is also a social being. Taking into account constant interactions and mutual relations between members of the society, man should be guaranteed certain rights. It primarily implies the guaranteed right to inviolability of one's personality, which is the basis for generating other personality rights. These rights are inherent, inalienable and absolute in terms of their effects; as such, they provide protection from the interference of the state and any third party. Focusing on the rules of civil law, the authors have explored the potentials and the scope of legal protection of personality rights provided by awarding a civil sanction. Although civil sanction is basically monetary sanction, it is deemed to be quite appropriate for the protection of personal (non-patrimonial assets.

  11. Soviet civil defense is inadequate and meaningless

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kaplan, F.M.

    1985-01-01

    In this paper, the author argues that Soviet civil defense plans exist primarily on paper and are used to pacify the Soviet people, not as plans to survive and prevail in a nuclear confrontation with the U.S. The author describes how the Soviet people have little faith in the civil defense programs. They don't believe they can survive an attack. Furthermore, he says the Soviets have never staged an evacuation exercise in any major city nor, even in smaller towns, has an entire community been evacuated. The author says there are numerous problems with the shelter programs as well. Very few existing shelters have any food stocks, only a few more have any water. There is little evidence that Soviet leaders have planned their economy with civil defense in mind. Nor - given the blatant inadequacies of Soviet civil defense programs, the marked vulnerabilities of the Soviet economy, and the intrinsic limitation and uncertainties about civil defense generally - is there much basis for claiming that Soviet leaders, even in desperate straits, would risk war with the United States while counting on civil defense measures to limit the damage wreaked on the Soviet Union

  12. Judicial civil procedure dragging out in Kosovo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rrustem Qehaja

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available This article tends to deal with one of the most worrying issues in the judicial system of Kosovo the problem of judicial civil procedure dragging out. The article analyses the reasons of these dragging outs of the judicial civil procedure focusing on the context of one of the basic procedural principles in civil procedure-the principle of economy or efficiency in the courts. Dragging out of civil procedure in Kosovo has put in question not only the basic principles of civil procedure, but it also challenges the general principles related to human rights and freedoms sanctioned not only by the highest legal act of the country, but also with international treaties. The article tends to give a reflection to the most important reasons that effect and influence in these dragging outs of civil procedure, as well as, at the same time aims to give the necessary alternatives to pass through them by identifying dilemmas within the judicial practice. As a result, the motives of this scientific paper are exactly focused at the same time on identifying the dilemmas, as well as presenting ideas, to overstep them, including the judicial practice of the European Court of Human Rights on Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, by which it is given the possibility to offering people efficient and within a reasonable time legal protection of their rights before national courts. For these reasons, the paper elaborates this issue based on both, the legal theory and judicial practice.

    Alessandro Prudêncio Lukosevicius

    Full Text Available Resumo A importância da complexidade para o desempenho dos negócios tem ganhado reconhecimento acadêmico e gerencial. Saber lidar de forma efetiva com a complexidade é um diferencial para as organizações, incluindo as temporárias (projetos. Portanto, um melhor entendimento da complexidade em projetos e suas aplicações mostra-se necessário. No entanto, a literatura científica é carente de frameworks para avaliar a complexidade nas organizações, especialmente na área de construção civil. Assim, o objetivo deste artigo exploratório é propor um framework para avaliar a complexidade de projetos em portfólios de engenharia civil. O framework foi criado a partir dos fatores de complexidade em projetos de engenharia identificados pela revisão bibliográfica, tratado pela técnica para tomada de decisão ANP (Analytic Network Process e suportado pela Teoria da Complexidade. Como resultado, foi criado o MID (multiplicidade, interdependência, diversidade Framework e aplicado em um exemplo para priorizar o portfólio de projetos de uma empresa de construção civil.

    The interaction between political executives and civil servants rests on a delicate balance between political responsiveness and the duty of civil servants and ministers to respect legal and other normative constraints on executive authority.

Organizational factors strongly influence civil servants’ behavior when they have to balance responsiveness against constraints on their role as political advisers. Moreover, civil...

    El lector me permitirá quizá que le explique de entrada el propósito y el alcance de este brevísimo ensayo, anticipándole los temas de las tres partes que lo componen. Primero, explico lo que quiero decir con la expresión «sociedad civil». Con este fin, describo un tipo o carácter ideal de sociedad civil, en torno al cual he organizado un esquema conceptual que utilizo desde hace años en un amplio programa de investigación en ciencia social; y esbozo las líneas de demarcación entre mi uso de esa expresión y otros usos que se han hecho y se hacen tic ella. Segundo, reelaboro el proceso por el que comencé a utilizar este concepto a mediados de los años setenta. Se trata de un esbozo de reconstrucción, hipotético y fragmentario, del contexto de descubrimiento de aquel esquema conceptual. Es un flash back que me lleva de los primeros sesenta (podría haberme llevado más atrás a mi libro Estado, burocracia y sociedad civil, que escribí en 1976 (Pérez- Díaz, 1978. Tercero, tomo nota de los cambios en mi posición a lo largo de estos años, y me interrogo sobre algunos de los problemas que me han llevado de la concepción de 1976 a la que expongo en La primacía de la sociedad civil de 1993 (Pérez- Díaz, 1993, y en mis trabajos ulteriores, donde hay un desplazamiento sistemático del énfasis de mi trabajo desde lo que Hamo (en la Primada «sociedad civil sensu stricto» hacia la «sociedad civil sensu lato».

  11. Transfrontier nuclear civil liability without international conventions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Dogauchi, M.

    1992-01-01

    Japan is not a contracting party of any international convention in the field of nuclear civil liability, and neither are other east Asian countries who have or will soon have nuclear plants. Therefore, the ordinary rules on private international law will play an important role in dealing with transfrontier nuclear civil liability. Above all, the problems on judicial jurisdiction and governing law are crucial points. With regard to the relations between the above countries and the countries whose legal systems are within the framework of Paris or Vienna Conventions, geographical scopes of these conventions are to be considered. There are two different parts in the international civil liability conventions: uniform civil liability law and mutual funds. As to the first, it is important that, even without the conventions, the basic structure of the nuclear civil liability laws in non-member countries are almost the same with those of members. In any event, considering that the establishment of a single international regime to cover all countries will be hardly possible, legal consequences under the private international law will be explored.

  12. Protection of civil rights and technological development

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Wagner, H

    1985-01-01

    The question of how the consequences of technological development are to be mastered on the legal level is not primarily a problem of the administrative procedure. The essential point in the discussion on protection of basic rights is not to be seen in the citizen's right to participate in administrative procedures, but rather in the substantive civil rights of individual persons as against the government, together with the system of values established in the Basic Law and derived from the basic rights, as well as in the proper functioning of the principle of separation of powers (legislature, administration, and judicature). The law on procedure and thus the idea of (protection of civil rights by rules of procedure) in this context only have an enhancing effect. Practical protection of civil rights is also ascertained in the Federal Republic of Germany by the particularly well-established guarantee of access to the courts. Another idea to be mentioned in this context is an approach that can be termed as 'protection of civil rights by government-funded research'. Other facts contributing to building a protective shield against infringement of civil rights by technology, activities or installations, include e.g. the federal structure of the state and the administration, type and scope of organisation of the public service, the established system of environmental protection and the safety provided by the current system of expert opinions.

    Full Text Available In recent times the concept of global civil society has made its appearance on national and international intellectual, as well as political agendas, in a major way. It is of some interest that two other concepts, both of which call for transcendence of national boundaries in precisely the same way as global civil society does, have also made their appearance on the scene of intellectual debates at roughly the same time: the concept of cosmopolitanism and that of transnational justice. All three concepts have dramatically expanded the notion of commitment to one’s fellow beings beyond the nation state. And all three concepts have extended critiques of policies that violate the dignity of human beings from national governments to the practices of inter-national institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Forum. In sum the inter-related concepts of global civil society, cosmopolitanism, and transnational justice have greatly enlarged the traditional domain of political theory. And yet for any political theorist who is acutely conscious of the phenomenon of power, these concepts are not unproblematic. For the practices of global civil society may just reinforce the intellectual and the moral power of the West over the postcolonial world. This is particularly true of say global human rights organizations. This paper will attempt to raise some questions of the concept and the practices of global civil society from the perspective of the countries of the South.

    Full Text Available Italy’s complex history has produced some remarkable path-breaking experiences and quite a few dangerous anomalies (such as Silvio Berlusconi’s media driven political regime,but it has also made the country the perfect ground for testing experimental antibodies that can contrast such anomalies. One of these antibodies is the web-based civil society orbitingaround the blog Beppegrillo.it. This article argues that the story of such community shows the path to follow for the Italian civil society. Grillo and his fellow bloggers in fact have so far demonstrated that new communication media have the potential to free citizens’ from control and at the same time increase their capacity to keep a close watch on power.La compleja historia de Italia presenta algunas experiencias innovadoras así como bastantes anomalías peligrosas (por ejemplo el régimen mediáticamente controlado de SilvioBerlusconi, pero ha convertido también el país en el territorio perfecto para el surgimiento de anticuerpos que pueden contrastar dichas anomalías. Uno de estos anticuerpos es la sociedad civil basada en la web que gira en torno al blog Beppegrillo.it. Este artículo argumenta que la historia de dicha comunidad muestra el camino a seguir para la sociedad civil italiana. Grillo y el conjunto de sus seguidores blogeros han demostrado de hecho que nuevos medios de comunicación tienen el potencial de liberar a los ciudadanos del control y a su vez aumentar su capacidad para mantener estrechamente vigilado al poder.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo tiene por finalidad comentar la transformación operada en el sistema del Derecho Privado patrimonial argentino; a través de la inclusión de una variedad de funciones de la responsabilidad civil; tradicionalmente pergeñada en el Código de Vélez como compensatoria. Se ha propuesto; asimismo; analizar la evolución de estas funciones desde la incorporación de algunos institutos provenientes de distintos microsistemas del Derecho Civil; como el Derecho Ambiental y el de Consumo; para estudiar el proceso de modificación de la legislación privada argentina desde el Anteproyecto de 2012 hasta su regulación actual el Código Civil y Comercial de la Nación -en adelante CCCN-; en aras de explicitar la configuración actual del sistema de responsabilidad civil vigente. Para ello se ha realizado una investigación de abordaje cualitativo; con técnicas descriptivas y bibliográficas; caracterizada como pura; si se analizan sus objetivos extrínsecos; y longitudinal en cuanto a su temporalización. Como conclusión principal podemos derivar que la responsabilidad en el Derecho privado patrimonial argentino asume una pluralidad de funciones; centralmente preventiva y resarcitoria; y periféricamente precautoria y punitiva; debiendo el intérprete realizar un adecuado diálogo de fuentes para la articulación del sistema a fin de mantener la plena vigencia de esta polifuncionalidad.

    Full Text Available El estudio de la creación del Registro Civil y de sus relaciones con los sacramentos de la Iglesia nos conduce al corazón de varias problemáticas jurídicas y político/religiosas de gran importancia. La comparación entre las historias recientes respectivas de Francia y Ecuador, dos países de tradición católica de distintos continentes, ofrece un interesante ángulo de análisis de estos problemas. Las numerosas observaciones de Mons. Juan Larrea Holguín sobre el tema de las relaciones entre el sacramento de matrimonio (y el bautismo y las obligaciones civiles (registro civil pueden aplicarse en gran parte para Francia. La precisa comprensión de las instituciones necesita siempre aludir a su historia. La génesis del registro civil demuestra cuál era el fin perseguido por los estados laicos, según una lógica de secularización, un tanto beligerante contra la Iglesia. A continuación, se revisa cómo se mantuvieron las reglas del registro civil en los siglos posteriores, tomando en cuenta los nuevos contextos políticos nacionales e internacionales, donde se modificó la postura diplomática de la Iglesia. Finalmente se observa cómo los derroteros entre ambos países se han separado muy recientemente. Este estudio nos muestra lo que se juega de libertad religiosa en los tiempos contemporáneos y abre interrogantes sobre los lazos que la Iglesia debe guardar con las legislaciones civiles.

  19. Newton and the origin of civilization

    CERN Document Server

    Buchwald, Jed Z

    2012-01-01

    Isaac Newton's Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended, published in 1728, one year after the great man's death, unleashed a storm of controversy. And for good reason. The book presents a drastically revised timeline for ancient civilizations, contracting Greek history by five hundred years and Egypt's by a millennium. Newton and the Origin of Civilization tells the story of how one of the most celebrated figures in the history of mathematics, optics, and mechanics came to apply his unique ways of thinking to problems of history, theology, and mythology, and of how his radical ideas produced an uproar that reverberated in Europe's learned circles throughout the eighteenth century and beyond. Jed Buchwald and Mordechai Feingold reveal the manner in which Newton strove for nearly half a century to rectify universal history by reading ancient texts through the lens of astronomy, and to create a tight theoretical system for interpreting the evolution of civilization on the basis of population dynamics. It was duri...

  20. Engaging Civil Society in Countering Violent Extremism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bibi van Ginkel

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available In this Research Paper Dr. Bibi van Ginkel takes an in depth look at how multi-lateral institutions, engage with civil society to counter violent extremism. Dr. van Ginkel argues that civil society can play a crucial role in preventing and countering violent extremism in numerous ways – by working on development programs, through their work in conflict transformation, in providing a platform to raise political grievances and to facilitate dialogue, or through their work in empowering victims and survivors of terrorism. The Paper finds that over the last decade there has been a more intensive coordination of activities between the UN and other multi-lateral organisations and civil society but the question remains whether the implementation as well as the drafting of these policies will live up to their potential effectiveness. This Paper gauges how effective these measures have been and what more there is to do. The final section concludes with a series of policy recommendations.

    It is good facing our civilization with a critical distance. It keeps away self-complacency and hybris. What we need is a potential of renewal which must be raised by doubts and challenges. A critical distance is based on the determined approval of our civilization which tries to comply with mankind in a high degree. Civilization is the expression of a realistic picture of man. According to this view freedom shall only be possible because of continuous changes and changes are only possible if there is freedom. Propagating confidence in the undestroyable basic forces of human nature and thus enjoying the present as well as trusting the future: this is our message, our moral task. (orig./HP) [de

  2. Beyond strong and weak: rethinking postdictatorship civil societies.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Riley, Dylan; Fernández, Juan J

    2014-09-01

    What is the impact of dictatorships on postdictatorial civil societies? Bottom-up theories suggest that totalitarian dictatorships destroy civil society while authoritarian ones allow for its development. Top-down theories of civil society suggest that totalitarianism can create civil societies while authoritarianism is unlikely to. This article argues that both these perspectives suffer from a one-dimensional understanding of civil society that conflates strength and autonomy. Accordingly we distinguish these two dimensions and argue that totalitarian dictatorships tend to create organizationally strong but heteronomous civil societies, while authoritarian ones tend to create relatively autonomous but organizationally weak civil societies. We then test this conceptualization by closely examining the historical connection between dictatorship and civil society development in Italy (a posttotalitarian case) and Spain (a postauthoritarian one). Our article concludes by reflecting on the implications of our argument for democratic theory, civil society theory, and theories of regime variation.

This paper embodies the lines of interest of this program. The proper operation characteristics and the energy consumption of the different types of vehicles used in urban public transportation mainly depend on the application they have been designed for. Nevertheless, an important point is to know, in the most concrete and specific form, the nature and other possible utilization options of the different urban transportation systems, as well as its energy impact and the possibility of a well oriented energy conservation. The purpose of this paper is to present in a concrete manner the different types of vehicles used in the urban public transportation, making an energy comparison, besides setting forth a program of actions tending to the energy saving for the vehicles that nowadays operate in the main cities of our country. The main actions are pointed out and the basic characteristics for their initiation, which can be summarized in three large groups: -action in the proper enterprises and with existing vehicular park. -actions over the management and exploitation of the transportation systems. -action for the utilization of new equipment and more efficient vehicles.

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to analyze whether civil society itself can enhance or stimulate the creation of social entrepreneurs, by studying the traits of the civil society and the various definitions attributed to it. The main question that the paper wants to answer to is Does civil society create social entrepreneurs and the main approach used in this research paper is the theoretical one. By studying existing articles and books on the topic, the paper tries to emphasize the various dimensions that civil society can embrace, as pictured by various authors, as well as how these dimensions can relate to social entrepreneurs and the emergence of social businesses. The paper is not meant to be a breakthrough in the field, but rather to launch a question that is related to very important topics these days, social entrepreneurship, social innovation, social businesses and their connection to a very much debated topic-civil society. The paper is work-in progress and wants to stimulate research regarding the search of the sources of social entrepreneurship, in order to analyze them and better establish them as incubators for the future. It wants to be of use to whoever is researching the concepts illustrated above, as well as for those who want to get in touch with the new buzz words of the academic and entrepreneurial fields. The hereby paper stands, as previously stated, in a theoretical framework and the findings represent a mere analysis of the cause-effect relationship between the characteristics of civil society and those of social entrepreneurs. However, we are of the opinion that it can be a very good starting point for the ones interested in the domain, to analyze more sources of social entrepreneurship or further refine the answer to the question addressed in this article.

Their results are occurrence and functionality of simplified proceedings system designed to facilitate significantly hearing some categories of cases, promotion of their consideration within reasonable time and reduce legal expenses so far as it is possible. The category “simplified proceedings” in the native science of the procedural law is underexamined. A good deal of scientists-processualists were limited to studying summary (in the context of optimization as a way to improve the civil procedural form, summary proceedings and procedures functioning in terms of the mentioned proceedings, consideration of case in absentia as well as their modification.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available A pesquisa sociológica em desastres tem muitas abordagens voltadas para as instituições e relações de poder. Desastres têm implicações sobre a ordem social, bem como a ordem social pode colaborar para a produção do desastre. As rupturas sociais provenientes de situações de desigualdade têm influência na resposta dos eventos de desastre, incluindo fatores políticos e econômicos que aumentam a vulnerabilidade. Este artigo analisa o discurso institucional e as práticas de defesa civil no contexto brasileiro. Antes de tudo, descreve as principais abordagens da sociologia dos desastres: o consenso mínimo, a polaridade e dicotomia, e mostra uma abordagem sobre a relação entre desenvolvimento desigual, vulnerabilidade e planejamento de defesa civil. A situação atual nas cidades brasileiras é de restrição de acesso a terra e isso resulta em aumento dos desastres. Se não ocorrer mudança no planejamento do Estado, com a adoção de novas estratégias explicitamente formuladas para quebrar o ponto de vista ideológico que submete grupos pobres, os desastres continuarão acontecendo. Na atual dimensão estrutural do planejamento, o sistema brasileiro de defesa civil classifica os grupos vulneráveis sem considerar a complexidade social. Desastres não destroem por completo os sistemas sociais existentes, mas são capazes de manter contínuos processos de indiferença social. Assim, este artigo conclui dando ênfase no desenvolvimento de uma agenda participativa no planejamento e no nível decisório em defesa civil.Sociological research on disasters has many approaches targeted at institutions and power relationships.

  9. CIVIL ENGINEERS' ROLES IN PUBLIC WORKS

    Murata, Teruaki

    Recently, the public interests are becoming high in the way of executing public works and the future direction of infrastructure development, which raises nation-wide discussion on these issues. How should we make our country's growth strategy for sustainable development? How should we realize the grand design of infrastructure needed for the implementation of such a strategy? It is obvious that further discussions are needed for these challenging questions. With an aim to promote such discussions, this paper reviews the history of public works and the professional practices (or accomplishments) of our great civil engineers, and discusses the future of public works and the roles of civil engineers based on their origin. Further, in this paper, the author, as the chairman of the Public Works Committee of Japan Civil Engineering Contractors Association, introduces the Association's proposal of "realization of an attractive construction industry." However, for its realization, sustainable institutional arrangements under social consensus are indispensable. Also, individual engineer must establish his/her own identity based on sense of social ethics. It is the author's hope that, through these journals, the professional practices of civil engineers will be widely known to the public with objective logics and discussed to achieve social consensus.

  15. Civil engineering challenge with nuclear waste

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Day, D.

    1985-01-01

    The civil engineer can help to solve the problems in disposing of nuclear waste in a deep geologic formation. The site for a nuclear waste repository must be carefully selected so that the geology provides the natural barrier between the waste and the accessible environment specified by the NRC and the EPA. This engineer is familiar with the needed structure and conditions of the host and surrounding rocks, and also the hydraulic mechanisms for limiting the migration of water in the rocks. To dispose of the nuclear waste underground requires stable and long-lasting shafts and tunnels such as civil engineers have designed and constructed for many other uses. The planning, design and construction of the ground surface facilities for a nuclear waste repository involves civil engineering in many ways. The transporation of heavy, metal shielded casks requires special attention to the system of highways and railroads accessing the repository. Structures for handling the shipping casks and transferring the waste onsite and into the deep geologic formation need special considerations. The structures must provide the NRC required containment, including hot cells for remote handling. Therefore, structural design strives for buildings, ventilation structures, shaft headframes, etc., to be earthquake and tornado-proof. These important design bases and considerations for the civil engineer working on a nuclear waste repository are discussed in this paper

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available An ever increasing feature of public office is the way in which the recruitment and training of civil servants are controlled by legislation. Civil servants are a basic component of public administration but they are also important for labor law because civil service relations have the characteristics of an employment relationship and also specific features resulting from the rules of public law. The relevant expression of the interferences between public and private law for civil servants is recruitment and training. The originality of this article lies in the multidisciplinary character, combining elements of labor law, administrative law and human resources management, character reflected in the bibliography used. Another merit of this study is that the authors correlated the provisions of various laws: Constitution, Labor Code, Law no. 161/2003 on the transparency in exercising public dignities and public functions, Government Ordinance no. 137/2000 regarding the prevention and sanction of all discrimination forms, Government Ordinance no. 129/2000 concerning adults’ professional training.

No geral, os resultados indicam que, entre os idosos paulistanos do sexo masculino, a taxa de mortalidade dos solteiros é 61% maior que a taxa de mortalidade observada para os casados. Por sua vez, a separação/divórcio ou a viuvez parece elevar a chance de morte das mulheres idosas analisadas. No geral, idosas separadas e viúvas apresentaram taxas de mortalidade 82% e 35% maiores que a observada para as casadas.

  4. EUROPEAN CIVIL CODE BETWEEN DESIDERATUM AND REALITY

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Liviu-Bogdan Ciucă

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available The principle of priority and direct application of European rules in relation to the provisions that we find in the national legislation, once assumed at European level, it has generated debates and concerns about the usefulness of a single legal act in private law matters. The idea of European Civil Code, appeared somewhere in the early 80s, is becoming more current and triggers a justified and sustained interest. Considering that the civil legislation of Community Member is a legislation dominated by tradition and peculiarities of culture, religion and temper, the issue of a European Civil Code forms as a project generating discussions, restraints and even rejec tions of the Member States in relation to this proposal. The current system of European legislative acts that apply immediately and priority in EU member states remains only a temporary solution and which generates difficulties in interpretation and affects the utility of the enactment. Clarifications on the pros and cons to promote a European Civil Codex will be analyzed primarily in terms of law and, last but not least in terms of political perspective, taking into account the Community objectives undertaken by accession treaties and the need for a legislative norm, especially European, to be predictable, transparent, useful and accessible. This paper intends to submit to debate both current doctrinal arguments, the blocking of such an approach, based on the principle of autonomy and the peculiarities of the legal system of each Member State, but also considering the practical arguments and of simplification of rules met in a European Civil Code assumed and applicable in the European space.

  7. Politicized Civil Society in Bangladesh: Case Study Analyses

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Farhat Tasnim

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available Although civil society in Bangladesh is recognized for its vibrant performance in social development, it is often criticized for its inability to ensure good governance and democracy. The aim of this paper is to point out the reasons for this failure of civil society. Through performing case studies upon five civil society organizations representing different sector and level of the civil society, the paper concludes that civil society organizations in Bangladesh are often politicized and co-opted by different political parties. In a typical scenario, civil society can provide a counterbalance or even monitor the state both at the national and local level. However, in Bangladesh, often the civil society organizations have compromised their autonomy and politicized themselves to certain political parties or political block. In such a vulnerable position, civil society can hardly play its expected role to ensure good governance and strengthen democracy.

The second part deals with the new Hungarian Civil Code (2013/14 its content, methods of regulation and its relation to other civil legislation, temporal validity with the adherence to the idea of validity pro futuro, as well as its tendency to harmonize its norms with the guidelines of the European civil law. In accordance with the idea of completeness, the lawmakers incorporated all of the areas of civil law according to the pandecta system - personal law, corporate law with civil association law, family law, obligations and inheritance. The Code is based on the principle of equality of parties in civil relations, the principle of good faith, fraus legis prohibition. Family law is based on specific principles of protection of marriage, family and children. Contract law is based on the freedom of contract, limited by good customs and morality. Tort law is guided by the principle of prohibiting the harm to others, full compensation of material and imaterial damages. Contractual responsibility is regulated separately, so that the tort rules apply if the specific rules of contractual responsibility donot say otherwise. Other grounds for obligations are also regulated, as well as unjustified enrichment, doing business without order or authority, unilateral expression of intention and securities. The grounds for inheritance are contractual, statutory or based on the will. Freedom of disposition by will is limited by statutory rules regulating the forced share. The system of transfer of property ex lege after the death is adopted. The state is a successor if there are no testamentary, statutory or contractual inheritors.

Materia ilimitada e inagotable, ha alcanzado cumbres de especial interés. Una de ellas se sitúa en la guerra civil española. Dentro de su variedad, y a modo de aproximación a tan rico tema, hemos elegido la instrumentalización de la población civil como arma. La elección responde a varios aspectos. En primer lugar, porque de dicha propaganda se han estudiado más sus aspectos políticos atendiéndose menos este tema. En segundo, porque el ejemplo de la conculcación de derechos de la población civil sigue presente en nuestros días en los medios de información, y no está de más recordar que no se trata de un fenómeno reciente al calor de los nuevos tiempos. Para ello, hemos analizado diferente material y aportado varios ejemplos que evidencian los manejos de la propaganda totalitaria.
