  6. Dalla microfisica alla macrofisica

    CERN Document Server

    Caldirola, Piero

    1974-01-01

    La scoperta delle leggi che reggono il micromondo, effettuata dai creatori della fisica quantistica, rappresenta, assieme a quella della relatività, il maggior progresso compiuto dalla fisica nel XX secolo. Fino a poco fa però, malgrado i suoi successi, la meccanica quantistica era ancora mal compresa soprattutto nelle sue conseguenze filosofiche, e fonte di dibattiti senza fine. Spiaceva infatti, come spiace ancora, a molti il dover usare due linguaggi del tutto diversi per descrivere il micro- e il macromondo, per cui la fisica quantistica appariva come un incidente, uno stadio provvisorio nel cammino della scienza. Fu però la stessa ricerca a mettere in evidenza l'esistenza di sistemi macroscopici, quali l'elio liquido, i superconduttori, il laser, descrivibili solamente attraverso le leggi quantistiche. Si comprese allora essere queste un ponte gettato fra il micro- e il macromondo. Il libro vuole illustrare queste leggi in maniera non divulgativa ma concettuale, cioè limitando al minimo l'uso del for...

    The period 1990-1995 are reported, they concern the health impact of exposure to benzene and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), resulting from automobile exhaust products, for Italian general and occupationally exposed populations. The first recommendation takes into consideration the possible long-term effects of the unleaded gasoline, recently introduced in Italy. The latter two recommendations concern the quantitative evaluation of the risk of leukaemia and of the risk of lung cancer from exposure to benzene and PAHs, resulting from automobile exhaust. [Italiano] Sono riportati i pareri espressi dalla Commissione Consultiva Tossicologica Nazionale (CCTN) nel periodo 1990-1995 riguardanti la valutazione del rischio cancerogeno per esposizione a sostanze contenute nelle emissioni autoveicolari. In particolare, viene stimato il rischio aggiuntivo di leucemia per esposizione a benzene e di cancro polmonare per esposizione a idrocarburi policiclici aromatici (IPA), sia per la popolazione generale che per quella professionalmente esposta.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Il Complesso di Edipo ha ricevuto dal movimento psicoanalitico, sempre o quasi, una declinazione che sceglieva come attori principali il figlio maschio e la madre, con l’intervento successivo del padre. Si è così costruita una sorta di mitologia eterosessuale di quel triangolo, lasciando aperto il lato che collega il figlio al padre. Si tenta qui di saldare la parte mancante, a partire dalla narrazione del mito e arrivando alle dinamiche psichiche che caratterizzano le famiglie contemporanee, con particolare attenzione alla clinica dell’adolescenza contemporanea.

    The solar energy facility located at the North Hampton Park Recreation and Health Center, Dallas, Texas is presented. The solar energy system is installed in a single story (two heights), 16,000 sq ft building enclosing a gymnasium, locker area, and health care clinic surrounded by a recreational area and athletic field. The solar energy system is designed to provide 80 percent of the annual space heating, 48 percent of the annual space cooling, and 90 percent of the domestic hot water requirements. The system's operation modes and performance data acquisition system are described. The system's performance during the months of June, July, August, September, and October of 1979 are presented and show a negative savings of energy. Experience to date indicates however that the system concept has promise of acceptable performance. It is concluded that if proper control and sequencing components was maintained, then the system performance would improve to an acceptable level.

  8. The Dallas Pavilion: Contemporary Art and Urban Identity

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jaspar Joseph-Lester

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available In the following statement, Jaspar Joseph-Lester and Michael Corris lay out the intentions of their project for the Dallas Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. By contrast with the national pavilions for which the Biennale is renowned, this pavilion represented a city, and was published in the form of a book rather than temporarily staged on the interior of a building. Available to visitors from a stall placed just outside the American pavilion in the Giardini, this little book is a curated selection of works and texts, intervening within the Biennale’s official structure of curated national pavilions. It colourfully surveys the expansive art world of Dallas’ artists, critics, curators, collectors, galleries, museums and educators, while raising questions about contemporary urban identity vis-à-vis an aging architectural apparatus such as Venice’s international art exposition.

    2010-12-01

    Data from more than 1,800 geologic borings and over 500 cone penetrometer tests (CPTs) were used to characterize the geomorphology of the Trinity River floodplain in the Dallas Metropolitan Area. Historical maps, aerial photographs and other published information were used to prepare a preliminary geomorphic map. Boring logs and CPT data were then used to refine the preliminary map, produce a series of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) cross sections, and interpret the recent geologic history of the area. Geomorphologic interpretations - most importantly the locations of paleo-channel deposits of sands and gravels - were used to identify reaches of the levees managed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the City of Dallas that may be at significant risk for under-seepage. Boring logs and CPT data collected atop the levees were used to assess through-seepage risks. Local bedrock is comprised of cretaceous-age Eagle Ford Shale and Austin Chalk. Depth to bedrock in the study area averaged 14.6 m (47.8 ft). The uppermost surface of bedrock has been deeply incised by a meandering river. Vertical relief between the shallowest bedrock sections and deepest portion of the incised paleo-channel is more than 15 m (50 ft). In places the incised paleo-channel is more than 0.8 km (0.5 mi) wide. These data confirm the presence of an erosional unconformity between local bedrock and overlying quaternary floodplain deposits. The observed erosional unconformity is attributed to a higher-energy fluvial environment that occurred as a result of a drop in base level. Recent floodplain deposits consist of interlobate point bar, channel and overbank sediments that are generally distributed in a fining-upward sequence. Buried channel dimensions vary widely, but are more than 250 m (820 ft) in some areas - much larger than the current channel. A semi-continuous basal layer of quaternary sands and gravels approximately 2 to 5 m (7 to 16 ft) thick exists in

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marian de HAAN-BOSCH

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Dallas Buyers Club (2013, inspired by true events, tells the story of Ron Woodroof, a middle?aged elec? trician from Dallas (Texas, who is diagnosed with AIDS in 1985. With few treatment options, he estab? lishes the Dallas Buyers Club in order to provide unapproved drugs to the AIDS community. This results in constant business travels, disputes with the FDA and problems with the law and the IRS. The article analyzes the buyers’ clubs phenomenon in the US, the drugs cited in the film and the clinical trial with zidovudine shown in the movie. The film could be useful as a teaching tool providing an introduction to the AIDS epidemic, clinical research and drug development, bioethics of human research and the agen? cies that regulate drug approval and their availability. Finally, the article presents a possible guideline for the use of the film in a teaching environment.

    Full Text Available

    La guida di un autoveicolo, specie in condizioni di intenso traffico o di cattive condizioni meteoclimatiche, è considerata uno dei principali fattori stressanti della vita odierna. Durante la guida si possono infatti osservare significative risposte simpatoadrenergiche e cardiovascolari con la comparsa anche di episodi coronarici. Tali risposte presentano un’ampia variabilità interindividuale in quanto sono influenzate da vari fattori (stile di vita, personalità etc..

    In questa rassegna, vengono presentati i principali risultati degli studi da noi condotti sulle risposte psicofisiologiche indotte dalla guida di diversi tipi di autoveicoli. In conducenti di autobus urbani è stato registrato un sensibile aumento del tasso urinario di adrenalina durante il turno lavorativo rispetto alla stessa fascia oraria di un giorno di riposo. Tale risposta adrenergica era esaltata dall’abitudine tabagica e dall’assunzione di caffè e bevande alcoliche. In soggetti che alla guida di camion coprono lunghe distanze, i più elevati tassi urinari di catecolamine e i più alti livelli di frequenza cardiaca sono stati registrati quando la guida era particolarmente stressante per la presenza di nebbia o di intenso traffico. In soggetti che partecipano, a livello amatoriale, a manifestazioni agonistiche di velocità su pista, abbiamo osservato che durante la gara, rispetto al periodo pre-gara, l’escrezione urinaria di catecolamine aumenta in misura molto rilevante. Analogamente a quanto osservato in autisti di camion, l’attivazione del sistema adrenergico è risultata direttamente associata ai livelli di ansietà. Dall’elettrocardiogramma dinamico è emerso che durante la gara la frequenza cardiaca raggiunge un valore medio di 163.5±7.4 battiti/min. (range: 146,180 battiti/min..

    Un significativo peggioramento della percezione visiva stereoscopica, con potenziale ricaduta negativa sulla performance dei guidatori, è stato osservato in

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Heath, Jason E.; Bauer, Stephen J.; Broome, Scott Thomas; Dewers, Thomas A.; Rodriguez, Mark A

    2013-03-01

    The Iowa Stored Energy Plant Agency selected a geologic structure at Dallas Center, Iowa, for evaluation of subsurface compressed air energy storage. The site was rejected due to lower-than-expected and heterogeneous permeability of the target reservoir, lower-than-desired porosity, and small reservoir volume. In an initial feasibility study, permeability and porosity distributions of flow units for the nearby Redfield gas storage field were applied as analogue values for numerical modeling of the Dallas Center Structure. These reservoir data, coupled with an optimistic reservoir volume, produced favorable results. However, it was determined that the Dallas Center Structure cannot be simplified to four zones of high, uniform permeabilities. Updated modeling using field and core data for the site provided unfavorable results for air fill-up. This report presents Sandia National Laboratories petrologic and petrophysical analysis of the Dallas Center Structure that aids in understanding why the site was not suitable for gas storage.

    1981-01-01

    Results of a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Dallas Quadrangle, Texas are reported. Field and laboratory data are presented for 284 groundwater and 545 stream sediment samples. Statistical and areal distribution plots of uranium and possible uranium-related variables are displayed. A generalized geologic map of the survey area is provided. Groundwater produced from the Navarro Group, Neylandville Formation, Marlbrook Marl, and the Glen Rose and Twin Mountains Formations exhibit anomalous uranium (> 9.05 ppB) and specific conductance (> 1871 μmhos/cm) values. The anomalies represent a southern extension of a similar trend observed in the Sherman Quadrangle, K/UR-110. Stream sediments representing the Eagle Ford Group and Woodbine Formation exhibit the highest concentrations of total and hot-acid-soluble uranium and thorium of samples collected in the Dallas Quadrangle. The U/TU value indicates that > 80% of this uranium is present in a soluble form

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Due to the global capitalist crisis, neoliberalism and the logic of commodification of everything have suffered cracks, fissures and holes. There is a return of the interest in Marx, which requires us to think about the role of Marxism in Media and Communication Studies. This paper contributes to this task by discussing some foundations of contemporary Marxist media and communication studies, including a focus on the renewed interest in Dallas Smythe’s audience commodity category as part of the digital labour debate. Dallas Smythe reminds us of the importance of engagement with Marx’s works for studying the media in capitalism critically. Both Critical Theory and Critical Political Economy of the Media and Communication have been criticized for being one-sided. Such interpretations are mainly based on selective readings. They ignore that in both approaches there has been with different weightings a focus on aspects of media commodification, audiences, ideology and alternatives. Critical Theory and Critical Political Economy are complementary and should be combined in Critical Media and Communication Studies today. Dallas Smythe’s notion of the audience commodity has gained new relevance in the debate about corporate Internet services’ exploitation of digital labour. The exploitation of digital labour involves processes of coercion, alienation and appropriation.

    Full Text Available Effect of gossypol on survival and reproduction of the zoophytophagous stinkbug Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas. Gossypol is a sesquiterpene aldehyde found in cotton plants conferring resistance against herbivory. Although the effect of this sesquiterpenoid on insect pests of cotton is known, the interaction of this compound with zoophytophagous predators such as Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas (Hemiptera, Pentatomidae has not been studied so far. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the purified gossypol on nymphs and adults of P. nigrispinus. Nymphs and adults of this predator were fed on Tenebrio molitor pupae and supplemented with solutions of gossypol at concentrations of 0.00, 0.05, 0.10, and 0.20% (w/v during the nymphal and adult stages or, only during the adult stage of P. nigrispinus. The nymphal stage of the predator was, on average, two days longer when suplemmented with gossypol. Emerged adults had lower fecundity and egg hatching, especially at the highest gossypol concentration (0.20% ingested during the nymphal and adult stages. However, this predator was not affected when it ingested the compound only during the adult stage. P. nigrispinus can have delayed nymphal development and lower reproductive performance when ingesting the gossypol during the nymphal and adult stages, but only at higher concentrations of gossypol than that produced by cotton plants.

    2007-01-01

    A Runway Incursion Prevention System (RIPS) was tested at the Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW) in October 2000. The system integrated airborne and ground components to provide both pilots and controllers with enhanced situational awareness, supplemental guidance cues, a real-time display of traffic information, and warning of runway incursions in order to prevent runway incidents while also improving operational capability. A series of test runs was conducted using NASA s Boeing 757 research aircraft and a test van equipped to emulate an incurring aircraft. The system was also demonstrated to over 100 visitors from the aviation community. This paper gives an overview of the RIPS, DFW flight test activities, and quantitative and qualitative results of the testing.

    More than 100 firefighters lose their lives in the line of duty each year; many of these deaths are caused by cardiovascular events and underlying coronary heart disease. In addition, firefighters are at higher-than-normal risk of developing certain types of cancer. To improve health and fitness among its firefighters, the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department developed and implemented an annual wellness-fitness program in 2008. The program detected and addressed medical issues including coronary disease, hypertension, high triglyceride levels, high cholesterol, high blood glucose levels, and hematuria. Prostate, thyroid, breast, kidney, and bladder cancers were also detected. By identifying these issues, engaging the firefighters' personal physicians, and recommending individualized treatment plans, this program may have extended lives and improved the quality of life for the firefighters.

    Full Text Available The objective of this research was to study the effect of five temperatures (17ºC; 21ºC; 25ºC; 29ºC and 33oC on survival and nymph development of Podisus distinctus (Dallas (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae in laboratory. Period of egg incubation decreased with temperature elevation being lower at 29oC and lethal at 33oC. This indicates that superior thermal limit for this species can be found between these temperatures. Optimal temperature for egg viability was 23.7oC. Nymphs of Podisus distinctus completed its development between 17 and 29oC with optimal temperature at 26.3oC with higher nymph viability at intermediate temperatures (19ºC and 25oC. Optimal temperature for rearing this predator lay between 25ºC and 27oC.

  10. The evaluation of cutoff rigidities and reentrant albedo calculations for Palestine, Dallas, and Midland, Texas

    1975-01-01

    By using the trajectory-tracing technique, cutoff rigidities for Palestine, Dallas, and Midland, Texas, have been calculated as a function of various zenith and azimuth angles. Extensive analysis of the trajectory calculations shows that there is a systematic uncertainty involved in computing the lowest allowed rigidity, and this uncertainty may be a significant fraction of the penumbral width. Continuation of the trajectory-tracing process below the Stormer cutoff allows an evaluation of the reentrant albedo, showing that the average invariant latitude of the guiding center of the trajectory at the albedo origin is the same as the average invariant latitude of the guiding center of the particle trajectory at the detection point. No significant difference in the cutoff rigidities for these locations is found when the external magnetic fields present in the magnetosphere are added to the geomagnetic field of internal origin

    Full Text Available Introduction: To investigate relationships between ambient temperatures and violent crimes to determine whether those relationships are consistent across different crime categories and whether they are best described as increasing linear functions, or as curvilinear functions that decrease beyond some temperature threshold. A secondary objective was to consider the implications of the observed relationships for injuries and deaths from violent crimes in the context of a warming climate. To address these questions, we examined the relationship between daily ambient temperatures and daily incidents of violent crime in Dallas, Texas from 1993–1999.Methods: We analyzed the relationships between daily fluctuations in ambient temperature, other meteorological and temporal variables, and rates of daily violent crime using time series piece-wise regression and plots of daily data. Violent crimes, including aggravated assault, homicide, and sexualassault, were analyzed.Results: We found that daily mean ambient temperature is related in a curvilinear fashion to daily rates of violent crime with a positive and increasing relationship between temperature and aggravated crime that moderates beyond temperatures of 80 F and then turns negative beyond 90 F.Conclusion: While some have characterized the relationship between temperature and violent crime as a continually increasing linear function, leaving open the possibility that aggravated crime will increase in a warmer climate, we conclude that the relationship in Dallas is not linear, but moderatesand turns negative at high ambient temperatures. We posit that higher temperatures may encourage people to seek shelter in cooler indoor spaces, and that street crime and other crimes of opportunity are subsequently decreased. This finding suggests that the higher ambient temperatures expected with climate change may result in marginal shifts in violent crime in the short term, but are not likely to be

    In low and high income countries alike, disability exacerbates social, economic, and health disparities, in spite of their differences. This study seeks to identify factors that predict the circumstances people with disabilities face, including poverty. A cross-sectional study design was employed using census track level data for the cities of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, and Dallas, Texas, from Mexico 2010 and USA 2000 census data collections. Two methods, spatial autocorrelation and geographically weighted regression were used to identify spatial patterns of disability and to explore the relation between disability and context-specific socio-demographic factors. Results indicated that people with disabilities living below the poverty line experience high segregation levels in the semi-central zones of Dallas. In Monterrey, people with disabilities clustered in central areas of the city. A Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) from both data analyses reported high goodness of fit (R ≥ 0.8 for Dallas data and R ≥ 0.7 for Monterrey data, respectively) and predictability of disability prevalence when social disadvantage factors such as unemployment, housing insecurity, household living conditions, and lack of education were present. The divergent and sometimes conflicting trends in practices and policies addressing disability in low and high income environments renders a reexamination of the framework of disability. An understanding of local characteristics joins a grounded socio-cultural understanding of the various contexts that shape location-based social networks and political decisions in providing such an analysis.

    Full Text Available Marialuisa FerrazziGirolamo Murari Dalla Corte and his poem Pietro il Grande, Imperadore I ed autocrata di tutte le RussieThis study focuses on Pietro il Grande, Imperadore I ed autocrata di tutte le Russie. Canti XII in ottava rima, a poem by the Mantuan Count, Girolamo Murari Dalla Corte. The work, which examines the conflict between Peter the Great and Charles XII of Sweden, was first published in Verona in 1803. 1814 saw the issue of a second edition, in which the author – who dedicated his work to the then reigning tsar, Alexander I – attempted to match the ideological perspective of the account to the changes occurring in the international political situation after the demise of Napoleon’s power. While presenting the historical and stylistic-structural aspects of the poem, the article also considers the relationship established with the Russian world by certain sectors of the Italian intelligencija, in particular by Venetian publishing houses, in the last decades of the 18th century. On the basis of Murari Dalla Corte’s papers, the last part of the article pieces together the sadly unsuccessful attempts made by the writer over a period of 20 years to obtain official recognition of the dedication of his poem from the Russian Court.

    W. P Lemos

    Full Text Available The morphology and histology of the reproductive tract of males of the predator Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas fed on different diets were studied. P. nigrispinus was fed on diets of: larvae of Alabama argillacea (Hübner, Tenebrio molitor L., Musca domestica L., and an artificial diet. The male reproductive tract, independent of diet, showed testes with intense red coloration in a compact, circular, or slightly oval structure. The vasa deferentia were similar in color to the testes and formed long filaments, which joined with the yellow-cream colored ejaculatory duct. The morphological characteristics of the male reproductive tract were similar under all diets, except for the artificial one. The histological studies demonstrated that independent of the diet the testes of P. nigrispinus were composed of four to six follicles. The testes with six follicles generally had four developed and two atrophied follicles. The morphological and histological differences of the testes of P. nigrispinus when fed with different prey are presented and discussed.

    2017-01-01

    The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of four pretrial jail release mechanisms (i.e., bond types) commonly used during the pretrial phase of the criminal justice process in terms of their ability to discriminate between defendants failing to appear in court (i.e., bond forfeiture). These include attorney bonds, cash bonds, commercial bail bonds, and release via a pretrial services agency. A multi-treatment propensity score matching protocol was employed to assess between-release-mechanism differences in the conditional probability of failure to appear/bond forfeiture. Data were culled from archival state justice records comprising all defendants booked into the Dallas County, Texas jail during 2008 (n = 29,416). The results suggest that defendants released via commercial bail bonds were less likely to experience failure to appear leading to the bond forfeiture process compared to equivalent defendants released via cash, attorney, and pretrial services bonds. This finding held across different offense categories. The study frames these differences within a discussion encompassing procedural variation within and between each release mechanism, thereby setting the stage for further research and dialog regarding potential justice reform.

    Full Text Available Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the development and reproduction of the zoophytophagous predator Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae fed kale, broccoli and cabbage affects its. Nymphs and adults of this predator were fed on larvae of Plutella xylostella (L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae as prey with kale, cabbage, or broccoli. In the nymph period, the duration and prey consumption were similar with all the Brassicacea cultivar. However, nymph viability was higher for predators with broccoli leaves. The mean weight of 5th-instar nymphs, newly emerged females and the sex ratio were similar among the Brassicacea cultivars, while newly emerged males were heavier with kale and broccoli leaves. The supply of broccoli leaves resulted in greater oviposition, higher number of eggs per egg mass and longer longevity of P. nigrispinus males and females. Furthermore, the consumption of P. xylostella larvae by adult predators was higher with these cultivars. The net reproductive rate (R0 and mean generation time (T were highest for predators with prey and broccoli leaves. The reproductive parameters of P. nigrispinus were enhanced when fed on P. xylostella larvae with and broccoli leaves, which can be an alternative diet in laboratory rearing of this predator.

    2012-12-01

    Throughout the month of June 2011, a variety of air quality measurements were obtained in the Dallas Fort Worth (Barnett Shale) field campaign. Species such as Hg0, O3, CO, NO, NO2, SO2 were monitored continuously along with a variety of volatile organic carbon (VOC) species ranging in size from C2 (ethane) to C9 aromatics to sesquiterpines. Mixed layer boundary heights were also monitored by Ceilometer measurements. At first glance, the mercury data has peaks that reach as high as 750 ppqv (parts per quadrillion by volume) which is approximately a 5 fold increase over the typical background values observed (~ 150 ppqv). The Fort Worth area has underlying Barnett Shale with thousands of natural gas compressor stations scattered throughout the surrounding landscape. We believe that a potential source of the elevated Hg0 is the result of leakage from these stations under the nocturnal boundary layer. A closer look at diurnal variations and backward wind trajectories will yield information pertaining to the types of air masses spanning the area. We will utilize the suite of chemical and meteorological measurements conducted during the campaign to facilitate source identification for specific time periods. Analysis of these data should provide new information on as yet unexplored sources of atmospheric mercury.

    2011-01-01

    Groin injuries in high-performance athletes are common, occurring in 5% to 28% of athletes. Athletic pubalgia syndrome, or so-called sports hernia, is one such injury that can be debilitating and sport ending in some athletes. It is a clinical diagnosis of chronic, painful musculotendinous injury to the medial inguinal floor occurring with athletic activity. Over the past 12 years, we have operated on >100 patients with this injury at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. These patients have included professional athletes, collegiate athletes, competitive recreational athletes, and the occasional “weekend warrior.” The repair used is an open technique using a lightweight polypropylene mesh. Patient selection is important, as is collaboration with other experienced and engaged sports health care professionals, including team trainers, physical therapists, team physicians, and sports medicine and orthopedic surgeons. Of the athletes who underwent surgery, 98% have returned to competition. After a minimum of 6 weeks for recovery and rehabilitation, they have usually returned to competition within 3 months.

    Concentrations of trichloroethene in ground water at the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant in Dallas, Texas, indicate three source areas of chlorinated solvents?building 1, building 6, and an off-site source west of the facility. The presence of daughter products of reductive dechlorination of trichloroethene, which were not used at the facility, south and southwest of the source areas are evidence that reductive dechlorination is occurring. In places south of the source areas, dissolved oxygen concentrations indicated that reduction of oxygen could be the dominant process, particularly south of building 6; but elevated dissolved oxygen concentrations south of building 6 might be caused by a leaking water or sewer pipe. The nitrite data indicate that denitrification is occurring in places; however, dissolved hydrogen concentrations indicate that iron reduction is the dominant process south of building 6. The distributions of ferrous iron indicate that iron reduction is occurring in places south-southwest of buildings 6 and 1; dissolved hydrogen concentrations generally support the interpretation that iron reduction is the dominant process in those places. The generally low concentrations of sulfide indicate that sulfate reduction is not a key process in most sampled areas, an interpretation that is supported by dissolved hydrogen concentrations. Ferrous iron and dissolved hydrogen concentrations indicate that ferric iron reduction is the primary oxidation-reduction process. Application of mean first-order decay rates in iron-reducing conditions for trichloroethene, dichloroethene, and vinyl chloride yielded half-lives for those solvents of 231, 347, and 2.67 days, respectively. Decay rates, and thus half-lives, at the facility are expected to be similar to those computed. A weighted scoring method to indicate sites where reductive dechlorination might be likely to occur indicated strong evidence for anaerobic biodegradation of chlorinated solvents at six sites

    The objective of the study was to evaluate the association between race/ethnic (r/e) discrimination and subclinical cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although r/e discrimination is a chronic stressor that might have negative health effects, cardiovascular data related to experiences with discrimination among different r/e groups in the United States remain sparse. Using data from the Dallas Heart Study, we assessed the association between perceived r/e discrimination and traditional CVD risk factors, C-reactive protein (CRP), aortic plaque area and wall thickness, and coronary calcium (CAC) score among black, white, and Hispanic participants. Prevalent CAC was defined as a CAC score > or =10 Agatston units; CRP elevation was defined as > or =3 mg/L. Participants were asked, "Have you ever been discriminated against due to your race/ethnicity? (responses: yes, no, or don't know)". Blacks reported r/e discrimination more frequently than whites or Hispanics (P discrimination were more likely to be college graduates, to have a family history of myocardial infarction, and to be more physically active than blacks who did not report r/e discrimination (each P discrimination had a higher prevalence of smoking (P discrimination and aortic wall thickness, aortic plaque area, prevalent CAC, or elevated CRP in any of the r/e groups. Among blacks, stratification by gender and education did not change the observed relationship between perceived r/e discrimination and CAC or CRP. Although perceived r/e discrimination is associated with certain health characteristics that may result in negative health outcomes, in general, we found no association of r/e discrimination with either subclinical atherosclerosis as determined by CAC score, aortic wall thickness and aortic plaque area, or inflammation as assessed by elevated CRP levels.

  19. A land-use and water-quality history of White Rock Lake Reservoir, Dallas, Texas, based on paleolimnological analyses

    Science.gov (United States)

    Platt, Bradbury J.; Van Metre, P.C.

    1997-01-01

    White Rock Lake reservoir in Dallas, Texas contains a 150-cm sediment record of silty clay that documents land-use changes since its construction in 1912. Pollen analysis corroborates historical evidence that between 1912 and 1950 the watershed was primarily agricultural. Land disturbance by plowing coupled with strong and variable spring precipitation caused large amounts of sediment to enter the lake during this period. Diatoms were not preserved at this time probably because of low productivity compared to diatom dissolution by warm, alkaline water prior to burial in the sediments. After 1956, the watershed became progressively urbanized. Erosion decreased, land stabilized, and pollen of riparian trees increased as the lake water became somewhat less turbid. By 1986 the sediment record indicates that diatom productivity had increased beyond rates of diatom destruction. Neither increased nutrients nor reduced pesticides can account for increased diatom productivity, but grain size studies imply that before 1986 diatoms were light limited by high levels of turbidity. This study documents how reservoirs may relate to land-use practices and how watershed management could extend reservoir life and improve water quality.

    Full Text Available Effect of Citrus floral extracts on the foraging behavior of the stingless bee Scaptotrigona pectoralis (Dalla Torre. Stingless bees have an important role as pollinators of many wild and cultivated plant species in tropical regions. Little is known, however, about the interaction between floral fragrances and the foraging behavior of meliponine species. Thus we investigated the chemical composition of the extracts of citric (lemon and orange flowers and their effects on the foraging behavior of the stingless bee Scaptotrigona pectoralis. We found that each type of flower has its own specific blend of major compounds: limonene (62.9% for lemon flowers, and farnesol (26.5%, (E-nerolidol (20.8%, and linalool (12.7% for orange flowers. In the foraging experiments the S. pectoralis workers were able to use the flower extracts to orient to the food source, overlooking plates baited with hexane only. However, orange flower extracts were seemingly more attractive to these worker bees, maybe because of the particular blend present in it. Our results reveal that these fragrances are very attractive to S. pectoralis, so we can infer that within citric orchards they could be important visitors in the study area; however habitat destruction, overuse of pesticides and the competitive override by managed honeybees might have put at risk their populations and thus the ecological services they provide to us.

    With the development of the National Water Model (NWM), the NWS has made a step-change advance in operational water forecasting by enabling high-resolution hydrologic modeling across the US. As a part of a separate initiative to enhance flash flood forecasting and inundation mapping capacity, the NWS has been mandated to provide forecasts at even finer spatiotemporal resolutions when and where such information is demanded. In this presentation, we describe implementation of the NWM at a hyper resolution over a nested domain. We use WRF-Hydro as the core model but at significantly higher resolutions with scale-commensurate model parameters. The demonstration domain is multiple urban catchments within the Cities of Arlington and Grand Prairie in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. This area is susceptible to urban flooding due to the hydroclimatology coupled with large impervious cover. The nested model is based on hyper-resolution terrain data to resolve significant land surface features such as streets and large man-made structures, and forced by the high-resolution radar-based quantitative precipitation information. In this presentation, we summarize progress and preliminary results and share issues and challenges.

    This document is the Final Report of the Solar Energy System Installed at the First Solar Heated Office Building, One Solar Place, Dallas, Texas. The Solar System was designed to provide 87 percent of the space heating needs, 100 percent of the potable hot water needs and is sized for future absorption cooling. The collection subsystem consists of 28 Solargenics, series 76, flat plate collectors with a total area of 1596 square feet. The solar loop circulates an ethylene glycol-water solution through the collectors into a hot water system heat exchanger. The hot water storage subsystem consists of a heat exchanger, two 2300 gallon concrete hot water storage tanks with built in heat exchangers and a back-up electric boiler. The domestic hot water subsystem sends hot water to the 10,200 square feet floor area office building hot water fixtures. The building cold water system provides make-up to the solar loop, the heating loop, and the hot water concrete storage tanks. The design, construction, cost analysis, operation and maintenance of the solar system are described. The system became operational July 11, 1979.

    Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is estimated to affect up to 20% of women. PCOS is associated with insulin resistance and cardiovascular (CV) risk factors. We aimed to evaluate the impact of race/ethnicity on the prevalence of CV risk factors and subclinical predictors of CV events. Cross-sectional analysis of data collected by the Dallas Heart Study, an urban, population-based cohort oversampled for blacks. A previously described cohort of women with PCOS and control subjects of the same racial/ethnic group, matched for age and body mass index. Hormonal and clinical measures associated with PCOS and CV risk factors. The study included 117 women with PCOS and 204 controls. Women with PCOS had significant differences across racial/ethnic groups in the prevalence of hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, hypertriglyceridaemia and impaired fasting glucose (P PCOS than controls after adjusting for race/ethnicity (odds ratio, 1·50 [95% CI, 1·03-2·30]; P = 0·04). However, we did not see an interaction of race/ethnicity that significantly changed CV risk factor prevalence between PCOS and controls. In addition, subclinical measures of CV disease were not different between women with PCOS vs controls, even among hypertensive women. Race/ethnicity affects the prevalence of CV risk factors for women with and without PCOS. However, race/ethnicity does not interact with PCOS to additionally increase CV risk factor prevalence or subclinical CV disease. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Full Text Available The morphology of the reproductive tract of Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas females fed with Alabama argillacea (Hübner larvae, artificial diet, Tenebrio molitor L. larvae or Musca domestica L. larvae were studied. The reproductive tract of females of this species presented yellow coloration and independent of the diet, each ovary had seven ovarioles joined through terminal filaments and forming a bunch shape structure. The histological data revealed that the ovary of P. nigrispinus was of meroistic telotrophic type, with each individual ovariole divided in a terminal filament, a tropharium (trophic chamber, a vitellarium, and a pedicel. The prey type affected the development and morphometry of these structures. Females of P. nigrispinus fed with 3rd or 5th instar larvae of cotton leafworm (A. argillacea presented developed ovaries with ovarioles showing a great number of oocytes in advanced stages of development. Females fed with artificial diet presented atrophic ovaries and ovarioles practically without oocytes. Females fed with T. molitor or M. domestica showed ovaries in intermediary stage of development. The central ovariole was longer in females fed with 5th instar larvae of cotton leafworm and shorter in those fed with artificial diet. Most developed oocytes were observed in ovaries of females fed with 5th or 3rd instar larvae of cotton leafworm, and the majority of atrophic oocytes were found in females fed with artificial diet.Este estudo apresenta a morfologia do sistema reprodutor feminino de Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas alimentado com larvas de Alabama argillacea (Hübner, Musca domestica L. e de Tenebrio molitor L. ou dieta artificial.

Estes resultados são discutidos em comparação com o efeito positivo que a suplementação alimentar com plantas tem sido relatada para esses predadores e sugerem que o uso de plantas é melhor que a substituição por solução de aminoácidos em sistemas de criação em laboratório desses predadores.

  6. High Resolution Flash Flood Forecasting Using a Wireless Sensor Network in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

    In this study, we develop and evaluate a high resolution urban flash flood monitoring system using a wireless sensor network (WSN), a real-time rainfall-runoff model, and spatially-explicit radar rainfall predictions. Flooding is the leading cause of natural disaster fatalities in the US, with flash flooding in particular responsible for a majority of flooding deaths. While many riverine flood models have been operationalized into early warning systems, there is currently no model that is capable of reliably predicting flash floods in urban areas. Urban flash floods are particularly difficult to model due to a lack of rainfall and runoff data at appropriate scales. To address this problem, we develop a wide-area flood-monitoring wireless sensor network for the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and use this network to characterize rainfall-runoff response over multiple heterogeneous catchments. First, we deploy a network of 22 wireless sensor nodes to collect real-time stream stage measurements over catchments ranging from 2-80 km2 in size. Next, we characterize the rainfall-runoff response of each catchment by combining stream stage data with gage and radar-based precipitation measurements. Finally, we demonstrate the potential for real-time flash flood prediction by joining the derived rainfall-runoff models with real-time radar rainfall predictions. We find that runoff response is highly heterogeneous among catchments, with large variabilities in runoff response detected even among nearby gages. However, when spatially-explicit rainfall fields are included, spatial variability in runoff response is largely captured. This result highlights the importance of increased spatial coverage for flash flood prediction.

  11. Clinical differentiation of patent foramen ovale and secundum atrial septal defect: a survey of pediatric cardiologists in Dallas, Texas, USA.

    Scheuerle, Angela

    2011-01-01

    Public health birth defect surveillance registries rely on health care provider diagnosis and definition of congenital anomalies. Major anomalies are likely to have consistent diagnoses across providers; however, definition of some more common, often minor, defects can be problematic. Of particular frustration are the transient neonatal heart findings: patent ductus arteriosus, patent foramen ovale, and pulmonary artery branch stenosis. Under certain circumstances these findings may be considered true anomalies-patent foramen ovale (PFO) as a clinical finding overlaps significantly with atrial septal defect (ASD) of secundum type, the latter being considered a true congenital malformation. Some criteria must be established to separate these conditions in case ascertainment. It is therefore helpful to understand the clinical definitions of patent foramen ovale and secundum atrial septal defect. Pediatric cardiologists in the greater Dallas, Texas metropolitan area were surveyed by telephone, fax, and/or email and asked what criteria they use to distinguish a PFO from a secundum ASD. This was an open-ended question. No baseline parameters were suggested or introduced by the interviewer. Pediatric cardiology fellowship training was identified for each physician to examine the hypothesis that graduates of a given program would use the same diagnostic criteria. Responses were obtained from 22 of 23 pediatric cardiologists. Four measurement criteria were identified: size of the opening, presence or absence of a flap of septal tissue, appearance of the defect on echocardiogram and presence/absence/amount of blood shunting across through the opening. Though there was overlap, diagnostic criteria differentiating PFO and secundum ASD varied among pediatric cardiologists. Two fellowship programs were well represented by the respondent population. Eight respondents were trained at Fellowship 1 and 5 at Fellowship 2. Place of fellowship training was not a strong indicator of

    This work deals with the main economical, energetic and environmental aspects related to the energy recovery from the combustion of municipal solid waste, without studying the technological aspects, being these themes treated by other teachers of the energy recovery from municipal solid waste (political, authoritative, ecological, energetic and financial). It is clear the limited diffusion of the technology today achieved in our country, production and the contribution given to the tele heating from the municipal solid waste. Are then listed the main quantities that intervene in the financial evaluations (costs of investment, useful life of the plant, economical indexes, periods for implementation, operating efficiency, yield, reliability and availability of the plant, actual value of the electric and thermal power produced, revenues from waste disposal), pointing out the importance of the size of the plant, which is the real decisive element. Some explicative examples of the weight of several items are produced. The role of the energy obtained from municipal solid waste in the new electrical market liberalized is particularly studies, pointing out the advantages in comparison with the energy of conventional sources. At last, the potential of the <> plants is discussed. They conjugate the incineration of the municipal solid waste to the technology of the gas-fired combined cycles.

    The quality of the Aircraft Vortex Spacing System (AVOSS) is critically dependent on representative wind profiles in the atmospheric boundary layer. These winds observed from a number of sensor systems around the Dallas-Fort Worth airport were combined into single vertical wind profiles by an algorithm developed and implemented by MIT Lincoln Laboratory. This process, called the AVOSS Winds Analysis System (AWAS), is used by AVOSS for wake corridor predictions. During times when AWAS solutions were available, the quality of the resultant wind profiles and variance was judged from a series of plots combining all sensor observations and AWAS profiles during the period 1200 to 0400 UTC daily. First, input data was evaluated for continuity and consistency from criteria established. Next, the degree of agreement among all wind sensor systems was noted and cases of disagreement identified. Finally, the resultant AWAS solution was compared to the quality-assessed input data. When profiles differed by a specified amount from valid sensor consensus winds, times and altitudes were flagged. Volume one documents the process and quality of input sensor data. Volume two documents the data processing/sorting process and provides the resultant flagged files.

    Full Text Available Uscito a pezzi dalla pesante crisi finanziaria e industriale del 1907, che aveva messo a nudo i limiti della struttura economica del Paese, il capitalismo industriale italiano elaborò un programma, portato avanti fino al primo dopoguerra, che prevedeva l’instaurazione di un governo di tecnocrati. Questo avrebbe dovuto trainare il Paese fuori dalla crisi, pianificarne l’economia e trasformarlo in una grande potenza industriale, con forti connotazioni imperialistiche. Segnali in tale direzione si erano registrati anche nei decenni precedenti, tra fine Ottocento e inizi Novecento, quando ebbe inizio un processo di concentrazione nel settore siderurgico e meccanico. Un percorso peraltro stimolato dalle commesse statali sempre più consistenti (Galli Della Loggia, 1970; Battilossi, 1999; Amatori e Colli, 1999; Bolchini, 2002. La crisi industriale e finanziaria del 1907 e la recessione a livello mondiale che ne seguì, accelerarono la soluzione tecnocratica, che prevedeva un’alleanza, più o meno stretta, con una parte della classe politica e l’entrata in guerra. Negli anni immediatamente seguenti il conflitto, il potere dei tecnocrati sulla scena politica italiana sembrò accrescersi notevolmente, soprattutto quando il governo progettò un programma di espansione economica nelle regioni del Caucaso, nei Balcani e nel Levante ex ottomano, territori in grado di fornire materie prime e di assorbire la produzione italiana in eccesso rispetto alle richieste di un mercato interno asfittico. La collaborazione tra mondo imprenditoriale, bancario e politico non produsse il risultato sperato. La caduta del governo Nitti e il ruolo destabilizzante e filotedesco della Banca Commerciale Italiana nell’Est europeo e nel Caucaso furono tra le cause principali che impedirono il decollo del progetto tecnocratico, provocando una dura reazione da parte dei fratelli Perrone alla guida del gruppo Ansaldo.

    Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) is one of the most common asopine species in the neotropical region and its occurrence was reported in several countries of South and Central America, as an important biological control agent for many crops. This study was carried out to identify the imidacloprid impacts on the functional response of predator P. nigrispinus fed on Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) strain resistant to lambda-cyhalothrin, on Bt cotton expressing Cry1Ac (Bollgard(®)). Spodoptera frugiperda larvae were used in the following conditions: resistant (1) and susceptible (2) strains to lambda-cyhalothrin fed on Bollgard(®) cotton leaves (DP 404 BG); and resistant (3) and susceptible (4) strains to lambda-cyhalothrin fed on non-genetically modified cotton leaves (cultivar DP4049). The predatory behavior of P. nigrispinus was affected by imidacloprid and the type II asymptotic curve was the one that best described the functional response data. Handling time (T h ) of predator females did not differ among treatments in the presence of imidacloprid. The attack rate did decrease, however, due to an increase in the density of larvae offered. Regardless of the treatment (S. frugiperda strain or cotton cultivar), the predation of P. nigrispinus females on S. frugiperda larvae was significantly lower when exposed to imidacloprid, especially at a density of 16 larvae/predator. The predation behavior of P. nigrispinus on S. frugiperda larvae is affected by the insecticide imidacloprid showing that its applications should be used in cotton crop with caution.

  1. The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Urban Radar Network: Enhancing Resilience in the Presence of Floods, Tornadoes, Hail and High Winds

    Currently, the National Weather Service (NWS) Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) provides observations updated every five-six minutes across the United States. However, at the maximum NEXRAD operating range of 230 km, the 0.5 degree radar beam (lowest tilt) height is about 5.4 km above ground level (AGL) because of the effect of Earth curvature. Consequently, much of the lower atmosphere (1-3 km AGL) cannot be observed by the NEXRAD. To overcome the fundamental coverage limitations of today's weather surveillance radars, and improve the spatial and temporal resolution issues, at urban scale, the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center (NSF-ERC) for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA) has embarked the development of Dallas-Fort worth (DFW) urban remote sensing network to conduct high-resolution sensing in the lower atmosphere for a metropolitan environment, communicate high resolution observations and nowcasting of severe weather including flash floods, hail storms and high wind events. Being one of the largest inland metropolitan areas in the U.S., the DFW Metroplex is home to over 6.5 million people by 2012 according to the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). It experiences a wide range of natural weather hazards, including urban flash flood, high wind, tornado, and hail, etc. Successful monitoring of the rapid changing meteorological conditions in such a region is necessary for emergency management and decision making. Therefore, it is an ideal location to investigate the impacts of hazardous weather phenomena, to enhance resilience in an urban setting and demonstrate the CASA concept in a densely populated urban environment. The DFW radar network consists of 8 dual-polarization X-band weather radars and standard NEXRAD S-band radar, covering the greater DFW metropolitan region. This paper will present high resolution observation of tornado, urban flood, hail storm and damaging wind event all within the

    The aim of this study was to assess characteristic impedance (Z c ) of the proximal aorta in young and middle-aged individuals with isolated systolic hypertension (ISH). Z c is an index of aortic stiffness relative to aortic size. In the Dallas Heart Study, 2001 untreated participants 18 to 64 years of age (mean age: 42.3 years; 44% black race) were divided into the following groups based on office blood pressure (BP) measurements: (1) optimal BP (systolic BP [SBP] hypertension (SBP hypertension (SBP ≥140 mm Hg and DBP ≥90 mm Hg; n=178). Z c , aortic arch pulse wave velocity, and minimum ascending aortic size were quantified using cardiovascular magnetic resonance. In multivariable-adjusted linear models, Z c was highest in the ISH group compared with the optimal BP, isolated diastolic hypertension, or systolic-diastolic hypertension groups (103.2±4.0 versus 68.3±2.1, 75.4±6.0, and 88.9±4.8 dyne*seconds/cm 5 , respectively; all P hypertension, or systolic-diastolic hypertension groups (6.3±0.3 versus 4.3±0.1, 4.4±0.4 and 5.5±0.3 m/s, respectively; all P 0.2). Results were similar in a subgroup of 1551 participants 18 to 49 years of age. In a multiracial population-based sample, we found evidence of a mismatch between proximal aortic stiffness and diameter in young and middle-aged adults with ISH. © 2017 American Heart Association, Inc.

  3. Greigite (Fe3S4) as an indicator of drought - The 1912-1994 sediment magnetic record from White Rock Lake, Dallas, Texas, USA

    Combined magnetic and geochemical studies were conducted on sediments from White Rock Lake, a reservoir in suburban Dallas (USA), to investigate how land use has affected sediment and water quality since the reservoir was filled in 1912. The chronology of a 167-cm-long core is constrained by the recognition of the pre-reservoir surface and by 137Cs results. In the reservoir sediments, magnetic susceptibility (MS) and isothermal remanent magnetization (IRM) are largely carried by detrital titanomagnetite that originally formed in igneous rocks. Titanomagnetite and associated hematite are the dominant iron oxides in a sample from the surficial deposit in the watershed but are absent in the underlying Austin Chalk. Therefore, these minerals were transported by wind into the watershed. After about 1960, systematic decreases in Ti, Fe, and Al suggest diminished input of detrital Fe-Ti oxides from the surficial deposits. MS and IRM remain constant over this interval, however, implying compensation by an increase in strongly magnetic material derived from human activity. Anthropogenic magnetite in rust and ferrite spherules (from fly ash?) are more common in sediment deposited after about 1970 than before and may account for the constant magnetization despite the implied decrease in detrital Fe-Ti oxides. An unexpected finding is the presence of authigenic greigite (Fe3S4), the abundance of which is at least partly controlled by climate. Greigite is common in sediments that predate about 1975, with zones of concentration indicated by relatively high IRM/MS. High greigite contents in sediment deposited during the early to mid-1950s and during the mid-1930s correspond to several-year periods of below-average precipitation and drought from historical records. Relatively long water-residence times in the reservoir during these periods may have led to elevated levels of sulfate available for bacterial sulfate reduction. The sulfate was probably derived via the oxidation of

    Transportation infrastructure networks in urban areas are highly sensitive to natural disasters, yet are a very critical source for the success of rescue, recovery, and renovation operations. Therefore, prompt restoration of such networks is of high importance for disaster relief services. Satellite and aerial images provide data with high spatial and temporal resolution and are a powerful tool for monitoring the environment and mapping the spatio-temporal variability of the Earth's surface. They provide a synoptic overview and give useful environmental information for a wide range of scales, from entire continents to urban areas, with spatial pixel resolutions ranging from kilometers to centimeters. However, sensor limitations are often a serious drawback since no single sensor offers the optimal spectral, spatial, and temporal resolution at the same time. Specific data may not be collected in the time and space most urgently required and/or may it contain gaps as a result of the satellite revisit time, atmospheric opacity, or other obstructions. In this study, the feasibility of integrating multiple sources of contributed data including remotely sensed datasets and open-source geospatial datasets, into hydrodynamic models for flood inundation simulations is assessed. The 2015 Dallas floods that caused up to $61 million dollars in damage was selected for this study. A Hydraulic Engineering Center - River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) model was developed for the study area, using reservoir surcharge releases and geometry provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District. The simulated flood inundation is compared with the "contributed data" for the location (such as Civil Air Patrol data and WorldView 3 dataset) which indicated the model's lack of representing lateral inflows near the upstream section. An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model is developed that used local precipitation and discharge values in the vicinity to estimate the lateral flows

    The zone of the Latian Volcano extends in an area of about 1.500 km{sup 2} in the south-est of Rome. This area is thickly peopled, owing to the presence of many towns (Velletri, Frascati, Albano, etc.) in the central share of the volcanic edifice. Actually the volcanic edifice of Alban Hills shows in the central and higher area, a large caldera (Tuscolana-Artemisia). This caldera has a sub-circular form wide 10 km in diameter and 75 km{sup 2} in area. The excessive groundwater drawing by wells caused the depauperation of underground resources so to produce a real crisis since 1984. To restore of water balance of the aquifer of the Latian Volcano, an important contribution could be given by the artificial recharge of the higher aquifer. This recharge could be done by allowing to meteoric water to inflitrate as much as possible in the underground by realization of an artificial lake; otherwise by making a series of little infiltration-basins together with infiltration-wells. Besides the realization of the artificial lake could give back to the landscape a characteristic component present in the past centuries until very recent times. [Italian] L'area del Vulcano Laziale si estende su una superficie di circa 1500 km{sup 2} a sud-est di Roma in un'area densamente popolata per la presenza di numerosi centri urbani (Velletri, Frascati, Albano, ecc.), ubicati nella parte centrale dell'ufficio vulcanico. Attualmente l'edificio vulcanico dei Colli Albani presenta in posizione centrale un'ampia caldera sommitale con forma subcircolare, con diametro medio di circa 10 km ed estensione di circa 75 km{sup 2}. Gli eccessivi prelievi di acqua sotterranea hanno condotto ad un impoverimento della risorsa idrica fino a determinare una vera e propria crisi manifestatasi a partire dal 1984. Per riequilibrare il bilancio idrico dell'acquifero del Vulcano Laziale, un contributo significativo potrebbe provenire dalla ricarica artificiale dell

    The first Ebola virus disease (EVD) case in the United States (US) was confirmed September 30, 2014 in a man 45 years old. This event created considerable media attention and there was fear of an EVD outbreak in the US. This study examined whether emergency department (ED) visits changed in metropolitan Dallas-Fort Worth--, Texas (DFW) after this EVD case was confirmed. Using Texas Health Services Region 2/3 syndromic surveillance data and focusing on DFW, interrupted time series analyses were conducted using segmented regression models with autoregressive errors for overall ED visits and rates of several chief complaints, including fever with gastrointestinal distress (FGI). Date of fatal case confirmation was the "event." Results indicated the event was highly significant for ED visits overall (Pcapacity as well as for public health messaging in the wake of a public health emergency.

    Full Text Available The financial crisis of 2008 is put in relation with two bubbles, financial and housing. Easy credit is at the origin of both bubbles. Risky bonds were issued to mobilize mortgages originated in the housing market, and bad bonds entered a fantastic number of institutional and private portfolios all over the world without any perception of the their risk. Unfortunately, bank credit to speculators was abundant and fed the final growth of the bubbles. When fears started to spread, the fall was immediate and expectations impaired very rapidly. The main aggregate demand components were severely curtailed and production fell as well. This is the crisis of the real economy. Fortunately, as opposed to what happened in 1929, the interventions of central banks and governments have been of an unprecedented size. The bail out of insolvent banks in particular has been providential. The exit from the current crisis, however, will surely be slow.

La autora decide reconstruir la historia de los mocovíes de una de las reducciones indígenas de la zona chaqueña santafesina, que a inicios del siglo XX adquirió el nombre de Colonia Dolores, en un período que comprende desde mediados del siglo XIX, cuando se inicia el proceso de sometimiento de los grupos mocovíes asentados en este espacio, hasta las características de la vida actual de esta población, que conduce a una de sus descendientes (Dora Teresa Salteño a asumir como la primera mujer mocoví presidenta de la Comuna. Para dar cuenta de la diversidad de temas que atraviesan todos estos años, la autora apela a un enfoque de larga duración, que involucra como estrategia metodológica la incorporación de distintos archivos de carácter provincial y fuentes eclesiásticas correspondientes a la orden franciscana y, por otra parte, las entrevistas personales para acceder a una realidad más próxima.

    2012-01-01

    La progettazione dei sistemi fognari e dei manufatti in essi presenti richiede un’attenta conoscenza delle leggi che regolano i fenomeni idraulici, con particolare riferimento alle correnti idriche a superficie libera. Partendo dalle nozioni fondamentali dell’Idraulica, il testo intende colmare alcune importanti lacune che ancora caratterizzano la letteratura italiana nel settore e che spesso sono alla base di errori progettuali, con ovvie conseguenze sulla sicurezza dei centri abitati (come testimoniato dai frequenti fenomeni di allagamento che sono stati registrati negli ultimi anni). Il libro è rivolto agli allievi dei corsi di studio nel settore dell’ingegneria Civile ed Ambientale. Particolare interesse è rivolto ai professionisti operanti nel settore della ingegneria idraulica e della pianificazione urbana, per i quali è forte l’esigenza di testi che contengano indicazioni di carattere sia teorico sia pratico, finalizzate alla progettazione di sistemi di drenaggio nei centri abitati.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available The article looks at Luis Fayad’s novel La caída de los puntos cardinales (2000 in order to foreground the influence of Arabic on the Colom- bian author whose grandparents were Lebanese. Born in Bogotá in 1945, Fayad published the novel after being identified as one of the first Colombian novelists dealing with urban literature. It represents a change of direction in his career, as Fayad narrates the entire life of six main characters, four men and two women, who decide to leave Lebanon and migrate to South America, ending up in Colombia. The analysis will focus on the importance of the circulation of the book in Italy by virtue of issues of intercultural exchange embedded in the novel. La caída de los puntos cardinales mixes Arabic tradition and Colombian customs; in the novel, Fayad achieves a cross-cultural story that may provide a successful model of integration. The Spanish-Italian translation and a critical approach to the language used by the novelist and employed by the translator will complete the essay.

    Full Text Available  The financial crisis of 2008 is put in relation with two bubbles, financial and housing. Easy credit is at the origin of both bubbles. Risky bonds were issued to mobilize mortgages originated in the housing market, and bad bonds entered a fantastic number of institutional and private portfolios all over the world without any perception of the their risk. Unfortunately, bank credit to speculators was abundant and fed the final growth of the bubbles. When fears started to spread, the fall was immediate and expectations impaired very rapidly. The main aggregate demand components were severely curtailed and production fell as well. This is the crisis of the real economy. Fortunately, as opposed to what happened in 1929, the interventions of central banks and governments have been of an unprecedented size. The bail out of insolvent banks in particular has been providential. The exit from the current crisis, however, will surely be slow.  JEL: E44, G01, G10

Indeed, its object par excellence coincides with female nakedness, while its subject is an invisible masculinity, which takes delight in looking. The paper is based on a study of the Anglo-Saxon legend of Lady Godiva and it is strictly connected with the subject of my dissertation in progress – metaphorical and physical blindness in 18th century French literature (since several voyeurs got blind because of their instincts and desires. Lady Godiva’s voyeur, called Peeping Tom, is struck blind for having looked out of his window and seen the noblewoman riding naked. This legend has inspired many artists in different fields, and nowadays its heroine is very famous and venerated. In particular, this essay focuses on the relation between this legend and compulsive looking (or scopophilia in two renowned films, Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock, and Peeping Tom by Michael Powell.

  4. La Grande Guerra dalla parte delle donne nella poesia inglese

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available For many decades following the end of the Great War, in England great credence was given to the decisive role played by women in encouraging their “young men” to enlist in search of glory through the sacrifice of their young lives. Thus, in maintaining silence, women were thought to have been insensitive to the suffering of men. In their verses, however, the young soldier-poets spoke out eloquently against the horrors of war. Notwithstanding, an analysis of women’s poetry, for the most part published after the end of the war – leads us to hold that the study of their works ‘adds a new dimension to the established canon of war literature and a new way to understand the truth about war'. Therefore, while not discounting the fact that the propaganda, the censorship and the initial championing of the cause by women did, indeed, contribute to the enthusiasm of young men to take part in the conflict, it can be affirmed that the poetry written by women can be considered complementary to that written by men. In women’s poetry, the themes of remorse for the loss of young lives, physical and moral destruction and the deception to which young men had fallen victim were all present and are extensively examined in the essay.

    2017-01-01

    La Mostra "Astronomia e Fisica a Firenze" illustra l'evoluzione delle due discipline dal XVIII secolo fino ai primi decenni del Novecento. Teatro cittadino di questo processo, anzi di tutte le scienze, fu l'Imperiale e Reale Museo di Fisica e Storia Naturale, dove adesso ha sede la Mostra. Nell'arco di tempo esaminato tutti gli aspetti dell'indagine della natura erano ugualmente pertinenti ad un'unica figura di studioso, ma verso l'inizio del XX secolo alcuni indirizzi subirono una profonda trasformazione e al prevalente approccio tassonomico e fenomenologico subentrò, soprattutto per Astronomia e Fisica, un'indagine specialistica che finì per differenziare le varie ricerche. Protagonista di questa fase fu lo sviluppo dell'analisi spettroscopica. La Mostra, aperta da dicembre 2016 a marzo 2017, è organizzata dall'Università di Firenze (Museo di Storia Naturale; Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia) e dall'Osservatorio Astrofisico di Arcetri, in collaborazione con la Sezione di Firenze dell'INFN, il Museo G...

Should Article 2(2(a of Council Directive 2000/78/EC of 27 November 2000 establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation be interpreted as meaning that the prohibition on wearing, as a female Muslim, a headscarf at the workplace does not constitute direct discrimination where the employer’s rule prohibits all employees from wearing outward signs of political, philosophical and religious beliefs at the workplace? (case C-157/15. Must Article 4(1 of the same Council Directive be interpreted as meaning that the wish of a customer of an information technology consulting company no longer to have the information technology services of that company provided by an employee, a design engineer, wearing an Islamic headscarf, is a genuine and determining occupational requirement, by reason of the nature of the particular occupational activities concerned or of the context in which they are carried out?

Analogamente gli odierni strumenti BIM possiedono nelle loro corde sia una riconoscibile capacità di sviluppare progetti seguendo le regole del buon costruire, sia un puntuale controllo della geometria da cui derivano le molteplici rappresentazioni di tipo grafo-numerico. Ci si interrogherà inoltre sul rinnovato rapporto tra Rilievo e Progetto, in un ambiente particolarmente fertile ove la Geometria è indagata nelle sue poliedriche proprietà e al Disegno è affidato un ruolo di maggiore visibilità e di effettiva rilevanza.

  12. La scrittura terapeutica: cura e conoscenza di sé

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sonia Scarpante

    2017-08-01

    Full Text Available Il concetto di Scrittura Terapeutica ha inizio da un lavoro autobiografico realizzato nel 2003, il cui titolo è «Lettere ad un interlocutore reale. Il mio senso». Quella scrittura autobiografica si è rivelata terapeutica perché ha aiutato lo scrittore a sviluppare le sue afflitte sofferenze, superare i traumi e vincere vecchi sensi di colpa. La Scrittura Terapeutica, intesa come rivelazione interiore, è essenziale per capire anche i segnali fisici che il nostro corpo ci dà, spesso come una risposta, consapevole o no, a un dolore che avevamo vissuto e stiamo ancora vivendo. La scrittura individuale diventa un'esperienza condivisa in gruppi, dove ognuno dà il proprio contributo personale. L'approccio epistolare della Scrittura Terapeutica consiste in un gruppo di lettere (scritto a sé stessi, a una madre, ecc. utilizzate come strumenti terapeutici, in modo che lo scrittore possa facilmente richiamare gli episodi significativi della propria esistenza, dalla sua infanzia all'età adulta. Il modo epistolare diventa allora il modo più appropriato per ricordare le nostre emozioni, i nostri dolori, le sofferenze e i nostri sentimenti più profondi. I benefici, ottenuti con la scrittura individuale, diventeranno più ampi durante la lettura e la condivisione di esperienze personali con gli altri. Gli umori negativi, vissuti di nuovo dalla persona che racconta di sé, perderanno, linea dopo linea, la caratteristica dell'ansia e del tabù; mentre quelli positivi, anche se timidamente espressi, troveranno nella benevolenza altrui un ulteriore motivo per accrescere autostima. Tutti questi sforzi costanti rendono la "Scrittura Terapeutica" una forma appropriata per evolvere e per trasformarla in scrittura performativa.

    Full Text Available Riassunto Volgendo lo sguardo verso la complessità sociale non possiamo non sentire la necessità di fare alcune riflessioni che riguardano i contatti con le altre culture sia sul piano didattico, nella scuola, sia sull’interazione sociale. Da questo punto di vista appare urgente una riflessione approfondita che vada a toccare i valori espressi dalla multiculturalità, se non altro per com-prendere meglio il contesto locale nel quale viviamo. Allo scopo vogliamo partire proprio da lontano nel tempo e partiamo dal concetto di mito e dalle narrazioni in esso contenute.A nostro avviso i concetti espressi dal mito si prestano molto bene per la costruzione di un percorso che questo lavoro vuole sviluppare e che toccherà da vicino alcune riflessioni sulla lingua italiana, sulla storia e sulla geografia. Si tratta di prendere le mosse dai risvolti che le vicende mitologiche assumono per farne una rilettura di carattere pedagogico, antropologico e psicologico. Parole chiave: interculturalità, interazione, storia, didattica, contesto locale, scuolaCultures and social interactions: reflections on history, geography and Italian lan-guage for a contemporary intercultural didactics AbstractIf you look towards the current social complexity we certainly feel the need to make some reflections concerning contacts with other cultures both in terms of teaching in the school, and on a social level. From this point of view, an in-depth reflection seems urgent which hits the values expressed by many cultures, even if only to better understand the local context we live in, and the necessary changes for a new structure intercultural learning. With this intent, we want to start from far away in time and we start from the concept of myth and the narratives contained in it. In our opinion, the concepts expressed by myth apply very well to the construction of a path that this work aims at developing and that will closely touch some reflections on the Italian language

    Full Text Available The author presents three lines of investigation, developed in the University of Siena by the study of some hundreds of historical buildings. The study of depositional processes and products allows us to interpret the dynamics of depositional environments and to establish a chronological framework.This time framework is provided by different aspects of stratigraphy and allows us to interpret building activities in terms of dynamic evolving environments. The record of buildings activities and climatic-pollution processes through historical time is held in these walls along with evidence of the different lime mortars. Our aim is to calibrate the “tools” that could be used to connect the analysis of lime mortar to building activities. Lime mortars could be considered as a perfect dating material for the historical building activities, because it must be freshly prepared every time you need it (it couldn’t be reused, even for the smallest intervention. With the help of a computer we will obtain a rectified photography as simulation where a virtual model works as a mathematics formula. So that we would say that, with the virtual reality,we can either “rebuild” an outline of a building in a precise moment of its history, or we can examine and study all the theories related with the analysis of the material structure, and, eventually,we might understand either the theories will be right or not.L’autore presenta tre delle linee di ricerca sviluppate dal Laboratorio senese, risultato della prassi operativa su alcune centinaia di edifici. La prima è una riflessione sulla complessità del processo di formazione del deposito stratificato, sulle strategie da seguire nell’esecuzione dell’indagine e sulla necessità di un ‘progetto conoscitivo’ preliminare all’indagine stessa. La seconda linea di ricerca affronta lo studio delle malte. L’obiettivo è quello di calibrare gli strumenti che possono essere impiegati per ricorrere all’analisi delle malte nell’identificazione delle attività edilizie. Le malte possono considerarsi come il perfetto fossile guida per le attività dell’edilizia storica, poiché devono essere preparate al momento del loro utilizzo (non possono essere reimpiegate, anche per i più piccoli interventi. L’ultima parte del contributo tratta della fotografia rettificata, grazie alla quale è possibile simulare un modello virtuale dell’edificio, “ricostruendolo” nelle sue varie fasi costruttive, e attraverso il quale studiare e verificare tutte le operazioni di analisi della struttura materiale.

    Full Text Available Most economists expected that the “Great Recession” produced by the financial meltdown of 2008 would usher in a resurgence of traditional Keynesian economics and a decline of what has come to be called “market fundamentalism”. By contrast, also due to the inadequate size of the 2009 stimulus package, the resurgence of support for Keynesian expenditure policies has been extremely short lived. However, the negative popular and political reaction should not have come as a surprise, at least for three reasons: the design of the Obama stimulus plan and its difference from the expenditure policies of the Roosevelt Administration; the political environment that has eviscerated fiscal policy and placed monetary policy at the centre of economic policy and produced “debt driven” growth; the difference between policies appropriate to treating an income deflation and a debt deflation.

The investigation explores primarily the following questions: How is it possible to achieve an intercultural extension of the basic laws on which human rights are grounded? How is it possible to ensure that human rights are universally acknowledged and respected? Is there a contradiction between cultural pluralism and the universal acknowledgment of human rights? What arguments might support the idea of the universal value of human rights?

    1995-01-01

    Public concerns about surface water quality and its impact on health issues have put a premium on the ability to predict surface and groundwater quality in urban areas. The movement of toxins and nutrients in urban areas is largely controlled by interactions with soil and aquifer minerals along hydrologic pathways. Despite progress in theoretical modeling of the effects of these interactions on water chemistry, it is presently impossible to predict overall trends in urban water quality. Determining the controls on stream water chemistry is problematic due to the interplay between different hydrologic reservoirs which cannot be easily observed or measured. Natural tracers, such as dissolved ions and isotopes, provide an indirect method for observing subsurface interactions and are useful for time series analysis of stream water composition. Ionic species are generally nonconservative components because of chemical reactions and are thus useful for discerning the overall discharge chemistry affected by the relationship

  3. Dalla caduta al deicidio: mito, sacrificio e letteratura - From fall to deicide: myth, sacrifice and literature

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Manfredi Bortoluzzi

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims to offer a contribute to the anthropology of literature starting from Mario Vargas Llosa’s definition of fiction as deicide. The death of the author proclaimed by post-structuralism seems the last transformation of an ancient western mytheme. The fall into time and the desperate attempt to escape from it by the narrative plot leads the man-author to change himself into a deicide with the purpose to replace the divine creation with a literary one. From an anthropological point of view, the essay develops a mythography of literature that goes from the cosmogonic self-sacrifice to the death of the author which represents a further symbolic immolation to re-write the world. The myths of Tantalus, Prometheus and the Genesis offer a symbolic setting to understand the human need to tell stories. In this analysis, the concept of sacrifice represents a valuable heuristic tool to highlight the complex relation between the reality and the imaginary, the man and his self representation, which is expressed in the Jungian psychology by the terms Ego and Self.

    Full Text Available Neuroeconomics and neuroethics are subfields of cognitive neuroscience that address the neural correlates of distinct, although strongly intertwined, facets of decision-making. While neuroeconomics investigates the neural mechanisms underlying the maximization of personal economic utility, neuroethics integrates such knowledge with that provided by social neurosciences, in order to address typical questions in ethics and moral philosophy. We review the available research to contrast the hypothesis that both individual economic and socio-moral choices rely on a common brain network receiving domain-specific inputs (Extended Common Currency Schema and the claim that a specific brain network underpins choices in a socio-moral context (Social-Valutation-Specific Schema. In line with the former model, currently available evidence supports the existence of a single brain network associated with both choice types, regardless of the economic individual vs. socio-moral decisional context.

  6. Comparison between three different traffic micro-simulations and reality in Dallas

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    It is certainly desirable that transportation forecasting models are correct in the sense that the traffic patterns they predict correspond to what would happen in reality under the circumstances assumed in the forecasting model. Unfortunately, it is notoriously difficult to transform the above common sense statement into a technical specification. Since one cannot run controlled experiments in socio-economic systems, it is usually impossible to check the forecasts. The authors describe three traffic microsimulations which operate at different levels of fidelity. They are used to iteratively generate a self-consistent route-set based upon microsimulation feedback. They compare the simulation results of all three simulations to aggregated turn count data of actual field measurements.

    Full Text Available In Greece, during the first postwar period, similarly to what happened in Italy and Germany, a new way of understanding the relationships among State, economy and society appeared: the so-called “authoritarian” corporatism. The fall of the political liberalism in the hellenic country came with a deep crisis in the certainties about solidity and utility of economic liberties which derived in the establishment of the Kondylis and Metaxas dictatorships, who are the supporters of the greek government control. This paper wants to analyze, through the normative innovations and the attempts of interventions in the hellenic productive system, how the public authorities have tried to aligned themselves with the control government manners which evolved and established in the rest of Europe.

    1984-01-01

    An attempt is made to develop a better mathematical description of optical scattering phenomena, in order to construct an optical scattering apparatus for reliable and routine measurements of roughness parameters without resorting to comparator standards. After a brief outline of optical scattering theory, a description is presented of an experimental instrument for measuring surface roughness which incorporates optical scattering principles. The instrument has a He-Ne laser which illuminates the test surface at a variable angle of incidence. Scattered light distribution is detected by an array of 87 fiber-optic sensors positioned in a rotating semicircular yoke. The output from the detector is digitized and analyzed in a laboratory computer. For a comparison with experimental data, theoretical distributions are calculated by substituting the roughness profiles into the operand of and integral equation for electromagnetic scattering developed by Beckmann and Spizzichino (1963). A schematic diagram of the instrument is provided and the general implications of the experimental results are discussed.

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available Il contributo esamina la riflessione di Tommaseo sulla narrativa storica in relazione alla successiva redazione dei racconti, attraverso lo studio degli articoli apparsi sull’«Antologia». Si analizza l’attività critica dello scrittore e, in particolare, l’insoddisfazione per gli esiti dei romanzi recensiti quali elementi indispensabili per la futura elaborazione delle sue singolari soluzioni narrative. L’individuazione delle specificità della prassi narrativa tommaseana ne mette tuttavia in luce anche gli scarti rispetto alla sua poetica storica. Funzionale in tal senso è la recensione ai Promessi sposi, dove Tommaseo mostra di non comprendere pienamente le ragioni dell’opera e il ruolo dell’invenzione, benché condivida l’intento educativo e divulgativo di Manzoni. Tuttavia, la ricerca dell’essenzialità e della poesia come condizioni per un buon romanzo approderà a strutture antinarrative e a una prosa d’arte destinate a un pubblico meno ampio di quello manzoniano: si esclude così l’incolto destinatario di quella pedagogia del romanzo espressa nella rivista fiorentina.

    Full Text Available L’avvento delle tecnologie digitali di acquisizione dati 3D ha proiettato gli studiosi dell’architettura in una dimensione del tutto inaspettata. Milioni di punti hanno travolto ricercatori e professionisti ancora culturalmente impreparati ad affrontare la rivoluzione digitale nel campo del Rilievo. Le nuvole di punti acquisite documentano e allo stesso tempo rappresentano la spazialità degli oggetti reali, tuttavia, nulla rivelano su forma e geometria, architettura e materia se non attraverso una successiva interpretazione. Il contributo vuole soffermarsi sulle implicazioni teoriche e applicative del processo di interpretazione dei dati acquisiti per la comprensione della geometria e sulla funzione euristica della modellazione digitale, nel passaggio dal “noto all’ignoto”, nella “ri-scoperta” della forma e quindi dell’idea progettuale.

    Full Text Available RoDyMan, acronym for Robotic Dynamic Manipulation, is a research project funded by the European Research Council to the CREATE Consortium and carried out at PRISMA Lab in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Naples Federico II. The goal is the development of a service robot able to manipulate elastic and soft objects, which change continuously density and shape. These robots will be used not only in manufacturing but also as an aid to elderly or disabled people, for medical and surgical use, and in other manual activities. Preparing a pizza involves an extraordinary level of manual dexterity: for this reason a pizzaiolo robot has been conceived. It is also a tribute to Naples, at the forefront of technology, robotics and automation, but especially of culture and gastronomy, of which pizza is a symbol and tradition. Creating a robot able to manipulate objects like humans is one of the most sought and difficult challenges of robotics. It means to replicate skills that are the result of human biological and cultural evolution. This goal is arduous, mainly for two issues. First, we do not have a total knowledge of human nature, but this is the condition to be able to replicate the human functions in a machine. Second, there are many technical limits to implement a bio-inspired robot, not the least those making it user-friendly and aesthetically appreciated.

  1. Dalla “scala” al “piano”. Appunti per un’indagine interpretativa

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available During the Eighteenth Century – from Bonnet to Robinet, from Maupertuis to Diderot, and up to Buffon – several new topics of discussion were developed concerning materialism, the critique to finalism, the idea of nature as continuous metamorphosis (as apposed to the static, fixist and discontinuist theories of nature, the advocacy of providentialism, or, to the contrary, of the role of chaos. As a result, scales, prototypes and types have been employed as interpretative hypotheses influencing the main choices and lines of research. In this regard, however, Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire's work deeply modified the morphological metaphors. The teratologist's eye combined to the mineralogist's perspective established the priority of the material visibility of the living, based on the analysis of its structure rather than of its physiology. The single framework of organistion (unity of composition, on which base every being is formed is thus taken as the condition as well as the limit within which every possible variation in shape is fully justified.

    2010-02-01

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Se ha comenzado a partir de los entusiasmos egiptizantes avivados en Turin por la estancia de Jean-François Champollion en 1824-25 para estudiar papiros, inscripciones, monumentos jeroglíficos y coptos de excepcional importancia, que los Saboya habían adquirido hacía poco con la colección de Bernardino Drovetti y que habían depositado en el Museo de Antigüedades. El orgullo «patrio» suscitado por el descubrimiento de estos tesoros tuvo consecuencias en las investigaciones y en la enseñanza de la Historia Antigua, que se caracterizaron entonces, sobre todo,como investigación de la arqueología del próximo y medio Oriente. En semejante contexto tuvo lugar en 1848, en el marco de las reformas de las Bibliotecas, Academias y Universidades que en aquellos años llevó a cabo Carlos Alberto, la institución de la primera cátedra de Historia Antigua y Arqueología en la Facultad de Letras de Turin (Francesco Barucchi, director del Museo de Antigüedades y Egipcio desde 1835 hasta su muerte en 1869, catedrático de 1848 a 1861. Este fue el lento tránsito, en la Universidad, de una enseñanza histórica peculiarmente intensa como escuela de «elocuencia» a una actividad didáctica formativa, además de secamente informativa, fundamentada en concretas bases filológicas que hasta entonces se habían cultivado, de una manera u otra, tan sólo al margen de la Universidad, en las Academias, por personalidades científicas como el helenista-orientalista Amedeo Peyron o el jurista (alumno suyo Cario Baudi di Vesme. Al mismo tiempo, también se iba incrementando el interés hacia los monumentos epigráficos, arqueológicos y documentales localizables in loco e idóneos para ilustrar glorias regionales antiquísimas (prerromanas, romanas y romano-bárbaras, en dialéctica con intereses geográfico-etnográficos que incitaba, por entonces, la evolución de la situación política, económica y social (Luigi Schiaparelli, catedrático de Historia Antigua desde 1862 hasta 1897. De la enseñanza universitaria de la Historia Antigua se escindieron tanto la Arqueología como las Antigüedades Orientales (1862, circunscribiendo, como consecuencia, la investigación histórico-arqueológica únicamente al mundo mediterráneo greco-romano. La presencia durante casi treinta años en Turin del romano Gaetano De Sanctis como profesor de Historia Antigua en la Facultad de Letras (1900-29 y como director de la Rivista di Filologia e di Istruzione Clàssica (1923-29 junto con el magisterio, luego, de uno de sus discípulos predilectos, el piamontés Arnaldo Momigliano (1936-38, supieron elevar la investigación y la didáctica de la historia de la antigüedad a niveles internacionales por amplitud de intereses, por su severo rigor filológico y por su vivaz inteligencia historiogràfica. Tras la brusca expulsión de Momigliano de la Universidad italiana en el otoño de 1938, como consecuencia de las leyes raciales (exiliado en Inglaterra, su personalidad científica continuó madurando con resultados suyos propios, ocupó su lugar la enseñanza de la Historia Romana y Griega en la Universidad de Turin de Roberto Andreotti (1938-65: fue otra fase prolongada, didácticamente escrupulosa pero científicamente opaca, que veintisiete años más tarde se concluiría con la vuelta de Andreotti a Parma. El cauto atrincheramiento en la filología no fue suficiente para evitar un rechazo recíproco cada vez más evidente entre el catedrático y el ambiente académico piamontés que lo rodeaba, y con consecuencias mucho más desastrosas de las que, a nivel académico y humano, habían caracterizado también la permanencia de De Sanctis en Turin. Este, por su parte, no había conseguido nunca integrarse completamente en la ciudad de adopción, y tras varios intentos de dejarla obtuvo el traslado definitivo a Roma, a la cátedra que había pertenecido a su venerado maestro Julius Beloch. De Sanctis, sin embargo, había sabido aportar a los estudios de la antigüedad piamonteses -tal vez por primera vez- experiencias de amplio y fresco alcance que la renovarían como fecunda didáctica de la investigación histórica, dejando una huella difícil de olvidar.ABSTRACT: It began with the enthusiasm for things Egyptian re-awakened in Turin by the stay in the city of François Champollion in 1824-1825. He had come to study papyri, hieroglyphic and Coptic objects of exceptional importance recently acquired by the Savoy family with the collection of Bernardino Drovetti and placed in the Museum of Antiquities. The «patriotic» pride aroused by the discovery of these treasures gave a new direction to research into Ancient History and to its teaching, which became principally an antiquarian investigation of the Near and Middle East. It was in this context that, in 1848, together with the reform of the libraries, academies and universities carried out by Carlo Alberto, the first chair of Ancient History and Archaeology was instituted in the Faculty of Letters of Turin. Its holder was Francesco Barucchi, director of the Museo di Antichità ed Egizio from 1835 until his death in 1869. He held the new chair from 1848 to 1861. This was the beginning of the slow transformation of the teaching of history (previously conceived mainly as a school of «eloquence» towards a didactic activity more strictly formative as well as informative. The new model was founded on a solid philological basis. Until then such a basis was to be found to some extent only outside the universities, in the academies and in the work of scholars such as the historian of the Greek and Oriental worlds, Amedeo Peyron, or the jurist (his pupil Carlo Baudi di Vesme. Consequently there was also a simultaneous increase of interest in the epigraphical, archaeological and documentary evidence which could be found in loco and which might serve to illustrate the regional glories of distant antiquity (pre-Roman, Roman and Roman-barbaric in contrast with the geographical and ethnographical interests stimulated at that time by the ongoing developments in the economic, political and social situation (Luigi Schiaparelli, Professor of Ancient History in Turin from 1862 to 1897. It was then that the teaching of both Archaeology (I860 and of Oriental Antiquity (1862 were separated from that of Ancient History, thus circumscribing research in this field exclusively within the Greco-Roman Mediterranean world. The presence in Turin for almost thirty years of Gaetano De Sanctis from Rome as Professor of Ancient History in the Faculty of Letters (1900-1929 and as editor of the Rivista di Filologia e dilstruzione Clàssica (1923-1929, followed by the teaching of one of his favourite pupils, the Piedmontese Arnaldo Momigliano (1936-1938, succeeded in elevating research and teaching in the field of Ancient History to international levels in breadth of interests, extreme philological rigour and lively historiographical intelligence. Momigliano was abruptly dismissed from the Italian University in the autumn of 1938 as a consequence of the race laws. During his exile in England his scientific work continued to mature and produce those results which characterised him. He was replaced as Professor of Greek and Roman History in the University of Turin by Roberto Andreotti (1938-1965. This was another very prolonged phase, marked by a scrupulous attention to teaching but of little scientific value. It came to an end with the return of Andreotti to Parma, a city to which he had been connected since his youth. A cautious withdrawal into the safety of philology, in fact, had not sufficed to prevent a mutual estrangement between the professor and the Piedmontese cultural milieu that surrounded him. The consequences were much more disastrous than those which, both academically and socially, had also distinguished the period De Sanctis had spent in Turin. The latter had never completely integrated into his adopted city and repeatedly tried to leave it until his definitive transfer to Rome to occupy the chair which had already belonged to his venerated master, Julius Beloch. However, De Sanctis had succeeded, perhaps for the first time, in creating within Piedmontese studies of the ancient world a wider and more invigorating approach that was to confer on them the character of a fecund teaching of historical research. He left an unforgettable mark.

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available The Lord of The Rings non è un romanzo per ragazzi o una saga fantasy di pura evasione, ma è un racconto epico di sopravvivenza alle ‘brutture’ del mondo moderno. In On Fairy-Stories Tolkien chiarisce il concetto di escape come molla propulsiva per la sub-creation, momento salvifico per l’essere umano, il cui prodotto è la creazione di un mondo alternativo, improntato alla Bellezza, collocato in un tempo mitico ed eterno. La fantasia ha per Tolkien tre funzioni: recovery, escape e consolation, tra loro indissolubilmente intrecciate. Tale fantasia ristoratrice permette all’essere umano di evadere dal carcere di una vita limitata da menzogne, vuote formalità e condizionamenti. E attraverso di essa l’uomo può ritrovare una freschezza della visione della realtà, depurata dalle scorie contingenti e immersa in un’aurea mitica; l’escape avvia un processo che si adempie e sublima nell’eucatastrophe, oramai non più solo semplice lieto fine delle favole, ma eco dell’Evangelium nel mondo reale.

    Full Text Available The concept of common good could be declined in three major points: 1 the theft of the good itself from the profit mindset; 2 the creation of a link between the community and the good; 3 the creation of a new management form, neither public nor private, which knows the capacity of the good itself. From the analysis of the schedule published by MiBAC, it is clear that there is a lack of founds addressed to the artistic research. The situation that occurs nowadays is imposing the necessity of identifying another kind of development model. I took, as a research topic, Teatro Valle, which is one of the most important case in the Italian national context. The management of the entire structure undergoes through the principles of non-rivalry, non-exclusion and self-governance. The strongest points of this model are: the idea of an alternative management and the creation of synergies between several cultural movements.The theatre itself has been seeing as a multi-functional location: there are lots of performances flanked by debates, conferences, talks, and other initiatives. Another important aspect is the great visibility that the experience has been receiving through the years. However it is necessary to underline that the building, which is a private property, lives in a condition of lawlessness because it has been occupied. Moreover Teatro Valle has been accused of unfair competition by other cultural spaces. Since the culture is the common thread that helps us to uphold our identity, the common goods help us to recognize ourselves and state our fundamental rights.

    The AACE is an electric power distribution automation project involving research and development of both hardware and software. Equipment for the project is being installed on the electric distribution system of the Athens Utilities Board (AUB), located in Athens, Tennessee. Purposes of the AACE are to develop and test load control, volt/var control, and system reconfiguration capabilities on an electric distribution system and to transfer what is learned to the electric utility industry. Expected benefits include deferral of costly power generation plants and increased electric service reliability. A project review meeting was held to review the progress of the AACE and to communicate the objectives and experimental plans to the electric utility industry. At the time of the meeting, the experimental test plans were being written; much of the AACE field equipment had been received by AUB, and installation had begun. A computer system, the AACE Test System (AACETS), was already operational at ORNL. AACETS will be used to develop and test applications software and experimental control strategies prior to their implementation on the AUB system. The AACE experiments are scheduled to begin in October 1985 and to continue through October 1987.

ABSTRACT: In the political-religious conflicts between christians and pagans, under Theodosius' reign, a prosopographic study in a specific geographical area (Hispania Tarraconensis has identified a civil and clerical career in the same senatorial clan (Nummius Aemilianus Dexter and Pacianus. The clerical career (episcopus Barcinonensis was carried out in the city where the senator was born. This shows a real change in the policy of the roman society in the iv century A.D., and also the increasing power of the church and its hierarchy in the late Empire in the provinces. Furthermore Pacianus' writings contain interesting information on the modus vivendi of the Cristian community in Barcino and on the relations between institutions and local, provincial powers.

    Public concerns about surface water quality and its impact on health issues have put a premium on the ability to predict surface and groundwater quality in urban areas. The movement of toxins and nutrients in urban areas is largely controlled by interactions with soil and aquifer minerals along hydrologic pathways. Despite progress in theoretical modeling of the effects of these interactions on water chemistry, it is presently impossible to predict overall trends in urban water quality. Determining the controls on stream water chemistry is problematic due to the interplay between different hydrologic reservoirs which cannot be easily observed or measured. Natural tracers, such as dissolved ions and isotopes, provide an indirect method for observing subsurface interactions and are useful for time series analysis of stream water composition. Ionic species are generally nonconservative components because of chemical reactions and are thus useful for discerning the overall discharge chemistry affected by the relationship.

    La venuta alla luce, nella scienza fisica dei primi anni del Novecento, di elementi assolutamente nuovi prefiguranti il futuro mondo quantistico, è concordemente attribuita all'opera prevalente di Planck e di Einstein, secondo due linee di ricerca profondamente diverse, anche se non lontane risultano le loro concezioni del mondo fisico. Tuttavia, mentre del secondo è facilmente accessibile e sufficientemente nota la produzione scientifica, del primo risulta ancora scarsamente sconosciuta l'ingente produzione di quegli anni, anche perché reperibile, per la maggior parte, solo in lingua originale. Se si tiene presente, inoltre, la comparsa in tempi recenti, della ricostruzione storiografica non tradizionale di T. Kuhn, che ritiene di cogliere, negli scritti di Planck, la permanenza di una struttura integralmente classica fino ad anni successivi al 1906, data di pubblicazione delle Lezioni, risulta naturale convenire sull'opportunità di rendere più agevole l'accesso alle fonti planckiane di quegli anni. ...

    The contribution under consideration reports on the risks and impacts of fracking on the power supply. The International Energy Agency (Paris, France) predicts that the U.S.A. will be the world's largest producer of petroleum and natural gas in five years. The international energy landscape will change dramatically over the next twenty years. This may involve policy changes. Then, the U.S.A. could be independent possibly.

  3. Il Realismo Socialista come forma di “non arte”. Alcune ipotesi di lettura a partire dalla XXXII Biennale di Venezia e dalla documenta 3 di Kassel del 1964

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anna Zinelli

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available Il 20 luglio del 1964 la Pravda pubblica un duro attacco alla Biennale di Venezia - che sancisce, con il premio assegnato a Rauschenberg, la consacrazione del New Dada e della Pop Art - accusandola di “ciarlataneria”. Analogamente da parte della critica italiana emerge una diffusa tendenza a non ammettere la stessa liceità estetica del Realismo Socialista, recuperando i termini di una contrapposizione tra “arte” e “kitsch” il cui antecedente fondamentale può essere identificato nel celebre testo di Greenberg del 1939. Sempre nel 1964 la terza edizione di documenta a Kassel propone una lettura del contemporaneo che esclude programmaticamente il realismo, assumendo una visione idealista che rifiuta ogni possibile tangenza tra ricerche estetiche e dimensione politica. L’articolo si propone di indagare l’affermazione di un modello di lettura del Realismo Socialista che risente profondamente delle politiche culturali in atto negli anni della guerra fredda, i cui retaggi continueranno a perpetuarsi nel dibattito successivo sul realismo, trovando solo in anni recenti, con autori come Boris Groys, una forma di problematizzazione.

  4. Usability Evaluation of Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA) Concept in Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Tower Simulation

    Spot and Runway Departure Advisor (SARDA) is a proposed decision-support tool for air traffic control tower controllers for reducing taxi delay and optimizing the departure sequence. In the present study, the tool's usability was evaluated to ensure that its claimed performance benefits are not being realized at the cost of increasing the work burden on controllers. For the evaluation, workload ratings and questionnaire responses collected during a human-in-the-loop simulation experiment were analyzed to assess the SARDA advisories' effects on the controllers' ratings on cognitive resources (e.g., workload, spare attention) and satisfaction. The results showed that SARDA reduced the controllers' workload and increased their spare attention. It also made workload and attention levels less susceptible to the effects of increases in the traffic load. The questionnaire responses suggested that the controllers generally were satisfied with the ease of use of the tool and the objectives of the SARDA concept, but with some caution. To gain more trust from controllers, the the reasoning behind advisories may need to be made more transparent to them.

  5. La deontologia di chi produce e detiene dati statistici: dalla possibilità alla certezza dell'accesso

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tito Boeri

    2007-10-01

    Full Text Available The recently approved "Codice di deontologia e buona condotta per il trattamento di dati personali per scopi statistici e scientifici" greatly improves the Italian legislation on the privacy of personal data towards easier access to databases by researchers who intend to use them for non-commercial scientific purposes. However, the new legislation simply allows the researcher to access more and better data, it does not guarantee that the institutions that collect and posses these databases will share them with the scientists. To this end, we propose the introduction of a legal obligation - at least for public institutions - to share with researchers - at least those employed by universities - all statistical data that might be requested for non-commercial scientific studies. In this article, we document our own personal experience of requesting data from public administrations, showing how they are often reluctant, if not openly refuse, to invest resources in the dissemination of basic statistical information for research purposes. Not only would the legal obligation we propose allow these institutions to devote specific resources for the dissemination of statistical data, but it would also protect them from political pressure.

  6. Absence of ribosomal DNA amplification in the meroistic (telotrophic) ovary of the large milkweed bug Oncopeltus fasciatus (Dallas) (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae)

    Science.gov (United States)

    1975-01-01

    In the typical meroistic insect ovary, the oocyte nucleus synthesizes little if any RNA. Nurse cells or trophocytes actively synthesize ribosomes which are transported to and accumulated by the oocyte. In the telotrophic ovary a morphological separation exists, the nurse cells being localized at the apical end of each ovariole and communicating with the ooocytes via nutritive cords. In order to determine whether the genes coding for ribosomal RNA (rRNA) are amplified in the telotrophic ovary of the milkweed bug Oncopeltus fasciatus, the percentages of the genome coding for ribosomal RNA in somatic cells, spermatogenic cells, ovarian follicles, and nurse cells were compared. The oocytes and most of the nurse cells of O. fasciatus are uninucleolate. DNA hybridizing with ribosomal RNA is localized in a satellite DNA, the density of which is 1.712 g/cm(-3). The density of main-band DNA is 1.694 g/cm(-3). The ribosomal DNA satellite accounts for approximately 0.2% of the DNA in somatic and gametogenic tissues of both males and females. RNA-DNA hybridization analysis demonstrates that approximately 0.03% of the DNA in somatic tissues, testis, ovarian follicles, and isolated nurse cells hybridizes with ribosomal RNA. The fact that the percentage of DNA hybridizing with rRNA is the same in somatic and in male and female gametogenic tissues indicates that amplification of ribosomal DNA does not occur in nurse cells and that if it occurs in oocytes, it represents less than a 50- fold increase in ribosomal DNA. An increase in total genome DNA accounted by polyploidization appears to provide for increasing the amount of ribosomal DNA in the nurse cells. PMID:1158969

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available In the middle of the 17th Century, Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670 publishes the Typographeum vivum giving birth to modern Pedagogy. The aim of Comenius is essentially “to print typosless men”, i.e. to generate men with a deep-seated erudition in the three fundamental texts of Being (Bible, Nature, Soul. Only in this way it is possible to pretend to train men according to image and likeness of God. In the framework of the so-called athletic humanism developed by Peter Sloterdijk in You must change your life (2009, this paper proposes an analogy between the “pedagogical ambition” of Comenius and the “biotechnology ambition” of post-Darwinian eugenic thought.

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available Il paper si focalizza sullo studio delle possibilità di intervento sugli spazi pubblici e privati all’interno del tessuto urbano, considerati come un tutt’uno interconnesso, impiegando la leva di finanziamenti volti all’efficientamento energetico. A oggi, la maggior parte del tessuto costruito in Europa e negli USA non è mai stato soggetto di processi di riqualificazione energetica, presentando quindi caratteristiche inadeguate. Per affrontare questo tema attraverso la riqualificazione energetica sono stati sviluppati diversi strumenti finanziari basati sul principio di recuperare il capitale investito tramite i risparmi sulle bollette dell’energia; il paper analizzerà alcuni di questi strumenti considerati emergenti nell’attuale contesto. Verranno inoltre considerate le ricedute che l’insieme di questi interventi può generare nel tessuto della città nel suo insieme alimentando lo sviluppo urbano, valorizzando specifiche culture delle comunità e dei luoghi, intrecciando e ibridando urbanità e aspetti naturali.

    Full Text Available The research takes on those languages of Italian contemporary art that, on the last forty years, have chosen a critical perspective on the political and socio-economical power. Knowing the impossibility of giving a complete view of the problem, I have decided to face the problem around the existence andthe different ways of an iconography and a language strictly connected with political dissent, pointing them out with a selection of Italian works and artists, considering them in relationship with international languages.It’s been a necessity to re-examine the history of art considering the relationships between ideologies and politics, selecting highlights, to dwell upon three moments: from the end of second World War to the end of the Fifties, following the birth and the rise of the ideology of dissent; from the Sixties to the Eighties, considering the passage from the politics to the media, from the action to the iconography ofthe ideology of dissent turning spectacular; from the Eighties till today: from the dissent to a tragic irony, between representations and demythologized symbologies.

    Full Text Available In this essay photography is regarded as a tool for the careful observation of the landscape, which keeps the observer’s perception through places of everyday life as well as remote places, sometimes non directly experienced. In both instances images represent landscape knowledge and documentation caught in the instant of photography shot. According to his observational point, the author offers his own “sight”. Photographic exhibitions are here described as an opportunity for carefully understanding the landscape. They take the observer to a cultural journey in which his look is led by the author with thoroughness and method, transmitting “indefinable feelings”. Their poetry remains fluctuating in the memory of the spectator, creating new geographical frontiers, new meeting spaces and differences.

  2. Effects of gamma radiation on nymphal development and reproductive capacity of the large milkweed bug, Oncopeltus fasciatus (Dallas) (Hemiptera - Lygaeidae)

    Moursy, L.E.

    1985-01-01

    Gamma radiation adversely affected important fitness components of Oncopeltus fasciatus, particularly as expressed by nymphal development, subsequent reproductive capacity, mating competitiveness and longevity. Early treated 5th instar nymphs are about 2X more sensitive to gamma radiation than late treated 5th instar nymphs based upon LD50 values. The extremes in sensitivity were 5.01 kilorads (krad) for early treated males and 13.09 krad for females treated late in the 5th instar. Wing deformities resulted from doses in the same range as those for mortality. Fifty percent of early treated males had wing deformities at a dose of 10.81 krad while a dose of 12.5 and 12.89 krad was necessary for 50% wing deformities in males and females, respectively, when treated late in the 5th instar. Fecundity and fertility were affected at lower dosages of radiation than for mortality. The treatment of both sexes produced the greatest effect. Fecundity was reduced by 50% at 1.22 krad, while 50% reduction in fertility occurred at about half that dose, or 0.66 krad. Somewhat greater doses were required when females alone were treated and mated with untreated males. In this case a 50% reduction occurred with 1.87 and 1.07 krad for fecundity and fertility, respectively. When males alone were treated, ED50 values were 2.24 and 1.58 krad for fecundity and fertility, respectively

    ABSTRACT: The essay analyzes a recent step taken by the Kingdom’s Ulama that distances from the traditional meaning of apostasy and of the penalty given for this offense. According to this document, Murtadd would not be the one who leaves Islam for another religion, but the one who betrays the group he belongs to. Apostasy was therefore political, not doctrinal. In this sense, the document represents an essential progress for the qualification of religious freedom in Morocco (on the same way already indicated by the Marrakesh Declaration.

    In June 1993, the Department of the Navy, Southern Division Naval Facilities Engineering Command (SOUTHDIV), began a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Facility Investigation (RFI) of the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant (NWIRP) in north-central Texas. The RFI has found trichloroethene, dichloroethene, vinyl chloride, as well as chromium, lead, and other metallic residuum in the shallow alluvial aquifer underlying NWIRP. These findings and the possibility of on-site or off-site migration of contaminants prompted the need for a ground-water-flow model of the NWIRP area. The resulting U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) model: (1) defines aquifer properties, (2) computes water budgets, (3) delineates major flowpaths, and (4) simulates hydrologic effects of remediation activity. In addition to assisting with particle-tracking analyses, the calibrated model could support solute-transport modeling as well as help evaluate the effects of potential corrective action. The USGS model simulates steadystate and transient conditions of ground-water flow within a single model layer.The alluvial aquifer is within fluvial terrace deposits of Pleistocene age, which unconformably overlie the relatively impermeable Eagle Ford Shale of Late Cretaceous age. Over small distances and short periods, finer grained parts of the aquifer are separated hydraulically; however, most of the aquifer is connected circuitously through randomly distributed coarser grained sediments. The top of the underlying Eagle Ford Shale, a regional confining unit, is assumed to be the effective lower limit of ground-water circulation and chemical contamination.The calibrated steady-state model reproduces long-term average water levels within +5.1 or –3.5 feet of those observed; the standard error of the estimate is 1.07 feet with a mean residual of 0.02 foot. Hydraulic conductivity values range from 0.75 to 7.5 feet per day, and average about 4 feet per day. Specific yield values range from 0.005 to 0.15 and average about 0.08. Simulated infiltration rates range from 0 to 2.5 inches per year, depending mostly on local patterns of ground cover.Computer simulation indicates that, as of December 31, 1998, remediation systems at NWIRP were removing 7,375 cubic feet of water per day from the alluvial aquifer, with 3,050 cubic feet per day coming from aquifer storage. The resulting drawdown prevented 1,800 cubic feet per day of ground water from discharging into Cottonwood Bay, as well as inducing another 1,325 cubic feet per day into the aquifer from the bay. An additional 1,200 cubic feet of water per day (compared to pre-remediation conditions) was prevented from discharging into the west lagoon, east lagoon, Mountain Creek Lake, and Mountain Creek swale.Particle-tracking simulations, assuming an aquifer porosity of 0.15, were made to delineate flowpath patterns, or contaminant “capture zones,” resulting from 2.5- and 5-year periods of remediation activity at NWIRP. The resulting flowlines indicate three such zones, or areas from which ground water is simulated to have been removed during July 1996–December 1998, as well as extended areas from which ground water would be removed during the next 2.5 years (January 1999– June 2001).Simulation indicates that, as of December 31, 1998, the recovery trench was intercepting about 827 cubic feet per day of ground water that—without the trench—would have discharged into Cottonwood Bay. During this time, the trench is simulated to have removed about 3,221 cubic feet per day of water from the aquifer, with about 934 cubic feet per day (29 percent) coming from the south (Cottonwood Bay) side of the trench.

    Full Text Available The 1988 Brazilian Constitution officially decrees the end of the paternalistic “guardianship” policies aimed to control the indigenous peoples and to completely assimilate them. In practice, however, not all the constitutional rights are respected. The ethnographic case of the election of an Indian mayor, in Minas Gerais State, contextualized in the political path followed by the indigenous movement, allows a theoretical reflection about two main issues: the respect of cultural differences and the guarantee of rights.

    To analyze the situation of the vacuum in the FTU tokamak, on 22/5/96 was set up a task force to identify the problem(s) and to settle the operative and cleaning procedures. The main actions of the task force were: leak tests, automatic procedure to monitor on line the state of the machine vacuum and an exhaustive analysis of the work done before. The task force reviewed the outgassing measurements of the plastic materials inserted into the machine and was decided to repeat the test on the thermocouples. The results pointed out that the thermocouples are a practically infinite reservoir of water. The outcome of the task force was a set of new procedures and recommendations during both the operation of FTU and the shutdown periods. FTU is now operating at more acceptable plasma purity. [Italiano] Il 22/5/96 fu costituita una Task Force (TF) per analizzare le cause della `non pulizia` di FTU e per identificare le nuove procedure da seguire per la pulizia della camera da vuoto. Le azioni che la TF intraprese furono: leak tests, monitoraggio continuo dello stato del vuoto e revisione critica del lavoro fatto precedentemente. Vennero poi analizzate delle misure fatte a suo tempo sui materiali presenti nella camera da vuoto di FTU e, nel caso delle termocoppie, si decise di ripetere il test. Da questa seconda prova emerse che i cilindretti di queste termocoppie sono delle riserve inesauribili di acqua che vengono alimentate da ogni riapertura della macchina. Il lavoro della TF si concluse con una serie di procedure e raccomandazioni, da seguire prima di ogni riapertura della macchina e durante le campagne sperimentali a macchina fredda; tali procedure tengono conto del fatto che negli anni e` aumentata la quantita` di materiali plastici presenti nella camera da vuoto, soprattutto nei ports. FTU sta attualmente operando in condizioni piu` accettabili di pulizia della camera.

    Full Text Available In questo articolo viene illustrata la ricerca effettuata nell’arco di un anno scolastico in due scuole primarie del Comune di  Milano (l’Istituto Maria Consolatrice e l’Istituto Regina Mundi, dove sono stati sperimentati diversi metodi didattici con l’obiettivo di favorire la formazione delle competenze di analisi, astrazione e pensiero computazionale in contesti reali di programmazione del computer e robotica educativa. Le osservazioni mostrano come la centralità dell’uso evoluto della lingua sia il cardine nello sviluppo di competenze di tipo “pensiero computazionale”. In particolare l’elemento chiave che emerge nella ricerca è rappresentato  dall’osservazione della forte correlazione tra lo sviluppo delle capacità motorie fini della mano, lo sviluppo delle competenze linguistiche evolute e le competenze di pensiero complesso quali la capacità di astrazione nella descrizione di modelli reali e immaginari. La capacità di astrazione costituisce infatti la base della capacità di risoluzione di problemi e soprattutto della capacità di generare idee originali e creative, obiettivo di apprendimento primario della sperimentazione e del relativo processo di analisi di cui è stata oggetto. A seguire vengono quindi illustrati gli strumenti metodologici utilizzati, la loro modalità di valutazione; si preciserà quindi come l’uso della lingua contribuisca a potenziare e a sostenere il raggiungimento degli obbiettivi di apprendimento.   From the hand to video. Experiences and the construction of abstract, analytical and computational thought in primary school language education  This article presents research carried out in two primary schools in the city of Milan (Istituto Maria Consolatrice and Istituto Regina Mundi, where different teaching methods were implemented with the aim of encouraging the development of analytical, abstract and computational thinking skills in computer programming and educational robotics contexts. The observations show how the centrality of the advanced use of language is the cornerstone of the development of “computational thought” skills. In particular, the key element that emerges in the research is the strong correlation between the development of fine motor skills and the development of evolved linguistic and complex thinking skills, such as abstraction in the description of real and imaginary models. The capacity for abstract thought is, in fact, the basis for problem solving and generating original and creative ideas, the primary learning objectives of the experience, as well as the related analysis process. The methodological tools used and the evaluation method is discussed. The use of language contributes to strengthening and supporting the achievement of learning objectives.

    Full Text Available La actuación de la Cassa per il Mezzogiorno, que hasta ahora había sido subestimada y despreciada, se ha revelado en la actualidad, gracias a un estudio más completo y preciso de su desarrollo, como el motor fundamental de convergencia entre la Italia septentrional y la meridional durante la era de mayor prosperidad europea entre los años 1950 y 1970. La contribución que su extraordinaria intervención hizo al progreso de toda Italia fue activada por una combinación única de factores, tanto internos como externos, cuyas piedras angulares estuvieron constituidas por la experiencia del IRI y la estrategia del Banco Mundial. Sobre la base de los estudios del SVIMEZ y los análisis de los presupuestos de la Cassa per il Mezzogiorno, complementados por los realizados por la Agenzia per la promozione dello sviluppo del Mezzogiorno, se han podido evaluar en su integridad los resultados de las políticas de desarrollo puestas en práctica en el sur del país. A despecho de que, sesenta años después, la distancia sea muy amplia todavía, sobre todo en lo que se refiere al Producto Nacional Bruto per capita, pero no hay que olvidar que éste ha crecido casi hasta su cuádruple en términos reales. El crecimiento tuvo lugar mayormente durante la golden age, es decir, durante el período más productivo de las acciones de la Cassa. De hecho, el gasto de la intervención extraordinaria produjo unos resultados significativos en la promoción y modernización de la Italia del Sur precisamente en la época de la industrialización masiva de Europa. Pero, sin embargo, los mayores niveles de gasto se alcanzaron a partir de 1970, probablemente debido al crecimiento de los centros de oferta y suministro económicos -especialmente después de la creación e instrumentación de las Regiones en Italia- y después del cambio general de las condiciones de estabilidad y la expansión de la inflación estructural, debido al funesto e imparable crecimiento de la Deuda pública. En conjunto, contemplando la imagen desde una perspectiva a largo plazo, la contribución de la Cassa per il Mezzogiorno al desarrollo social y económico de las provincias de la Italia del sur fue fundamental. Sus actividades y experiencias pueden ser consideradas como el instrumento más efectivo e innovador para el desarrollo de la Italia meridional y de toda Italia en su conjunto empleado en un lapso de siglo y medio.

    Il 28 maggio 1606 Michelangelo Merisi fugge da Roma dove non fará mai piú ritorno; l’ultimo duello gli è costato la condanna a morte. Iniziano per lui gli anni della latitanza, anni che trascorrerá tra Napoli, Malta e la Sicilia. Nel suo passaggio in Sicilia, Caravaggio realizza dipinti di eccezionale qualitá, sicuramente tra i piú belli della sua breve e intensa esistenza. Nell’isola l’artista arriva nell’ottobre del 1608, dopo l’ennesima fuga, questa volta da Malta. La sua prima tappa siciliana è Siracusa, dove vive un artista suo amico: Mario Minniti. Da lui trova riparo e lavoro perché dipinge su commissione una grande tela per la chiesa di Santa Lucia al Sepolcro, Il Seppellimento di Santa Lucia, realizzata in un breve lasso di tempo, trasferendosi Caravaggio a Messina nel dicembre dello stesso anno.

    Rice black bug (P. palicornis) is one of the pests that attack the rice plants in the generative phase that causes the rice easily destroyed when milled and tasted bitter after cooking hence reduces the quality and quantity of rice. The bitter taste in rice may be due to the fungus associated with rice black bug. The aimed of this research was to detect the associated fungi with rice black bug P. pallicornis using some sterilization methods and inhibition with of leaf crude extract of C. gigatea. Detection of fungi from P. pallicornis was conducted using three sterilization methods and control (without sterilization) namely: (1) sterilization with aquades + alcohol 70% (5, 10, 15 and 20 times dipping) + aquades; (2) aquades + alcohol 70% (10 and 20 times dipping); (3) Aquades + alcohol 90 %+ NaCl 0.5 % +alcohol 90 % + aquades. Inhibition of fungi from P. pallicornis with crude extract of C. gigantea obtained by maceration method and then made some concentration to see the effect of its inhibition on the fungi associated with the P. pallicornis. The results showed that without sterilization, four microbe were obtained: Gliocladium sp., Aspergillus sp., black hyphae fungus and white hyphae fungus, sterilization method of Aquades + alcohol 70% with 5 times dipping in alcohol obtained Gliocladium sp., 10 and 20 times dipping found Aspergillus sp. and Gliocladium sp and 15 times dipping found Aspergillus sp. Sterilization with 10 and 20 times dipping in alcohol 70% then washing 2 times with aquades found Gliogladium sp. and Aspergillus sp. Sterilization with Aquades + alcohol 90 % + NaCl 0.5% + alcohol 90% + aquades found Gliocladium sp. Crude extract of C. gigantea had the potential to inhibit fungi Aspergillus sp. and Gliocladium sp. from rice black bug.

    Full Text Available Secondo il New Public Management, tutti i settori della pubblica amministrazione devono essere in grado di misurare le loro performance secondo una visione multi-dimensionale. I musei pubblici – statali, civici, universitari, ecc. – sono spesso una parte di una pubblica amministrazione, perciò i loro dati contabili e di bilancio sono “confusi” con quelli dell’ente proprietario. Questo produce un doppio effetto negativo. Da un lato, è arduo quantificare esattamente le risorse pubbliche trasferite al museo e, dall’altro, è impossibile misurare direttamente le attività e le performance economiche, patrimoniali e finanziarie. La ricerca, di natura esplorativa, propone una metodologia per ovviare ad entrambi questi inconvenienti. Il metodo di ricerca è prevalentemente deduttivo. L’articolo, dopo un’analisi delle principali teorie e tecniche di misurazionedelle performance e la costruzione diun modello teorico, termina con un’analisi critica del modello.   According to New Public Management’s principles, all sectors of public administrationmust check their annual performance from multiple perspectives. Public museums – state, municipal, or university museums to give just a few examples – are often part of the administrative and accounting data and are therefore often mixed up with the museum’s owner. The result is doubly negative. On the one hand, it is extremely difficult to quantify the public resources transferred to the museum. On the other hand, it is impossible to keep track of its annual economic, financial and assets performance. The research is exploratory and suggests a methodology attempting to solve both problems. The research method is mainly deductive. The paper begins with an analysis of the mainstream theories and techniques for performance measurement, then it proposes a theoretical model and finally a critical analysis of that model.

    Full Text Available Host plants may influence indirectly biological characteristics of predators, on a positive or negative way, poiting out the importance of studies evaluating the effect of cultivars on the third trophic level. This study evaluates the biological aspects and predatory capacity of Podisus nigrispinus adults fed Alabama argillacea larvae reared on cotton genotypes. The predator was fed daily with fourth instar larvae reared on leaves of the following genotypes CNPA Precoce 1 (hirsute, CNPA 9211-31 (high gossypol level, CNPA 9211-41 (medium gossypol level and GL2 GL3 (gossypol glandless. The pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition periods and the oviposition capacity of P. nigripinus were not affected when preyed on cotton leafworms reared on the listed cotton genotypes. Mean weight of predator females was higher (126.2 mg when they fed on A. argillacea reared on GL2 GL3 cotton leaves, in comparison to the observed weight (96.2mg of P. nigripinus females fed on larvae reared on CNPA 9211-41. Longevity of P. nigrispinus ranged 30.7 to 31.5 days for females and 38.0 to 66.3 days for males. P. nigrispinus females preyed 125.2 to 184.0 A. argillacea larvae during its adult stage, while adult males preyed 135.7 to 205.0 leafworms. Using plant resistance in association with P. nigrispinus is viable to control A. argillacea, because resistant genotypes do not influence negatively the biological characteristics of the predator.

    ABSTRACT: The paper attempts to examine the recent events surrounding the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and their consequences. On one hand it gives an account of the institutional crisis unfolded since December 2016, which started with the suspension of the Grand Chancellor decreed by the Grand Master. However, following a direct intervention on the matter from the Holy See, the Grand Master resigned from his office and a new Lieutenant was elected in his place. On the other hand it points out the most predictable outcomes of the constitutional reform process launched after the resolution of this crisis, with a particular consideration for the role of the professed Knights in the government of the Order - an aspect which is strictly linked to the relation with the Holy See - and for the balance of powers between the Grand Magistry and the other executive bodies, especially the Sovereign Council.

    Over the past two decades, a large number of rainfall products have been developed based on satellite, radar, and/or rain gauge observations. However, to produce optimal rainfall estimation for a given region is still challenging due to the space time variability of rainfall at many scales and the spatial and temporal sampling difference of different rainfall instruments. In order to produce high-resolution rainfall products for urban flash flood applications and improve the weather sensing capability in urban environment, the center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA), in collaboration with National Weather Service (NWS) and North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), has developed an urban radar remote sensing network in DFW Metroplex. DFW is the largest inland metropolitan area in the U.S., that experiences a wide range of natural weather hazards such as flash flood and hailstorms. The DFW urban remote sensing network, centered by the deployment of eight dual-polarization X-band radars and a NWS WSR-88DP radar, is expected to provide impacts-based warning and forecasts for benefit of the public safety and economy. High-resolution quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) is one of the major goals of the development of this urban test bed. In addition to ground radar-based rainfall estimation, satellite-based rainfall products for this area are also of interest for this study. Typical example is the rainfall rate product produced by the Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) onboard Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory satellite. Therefore, cross-comparison between ground and space-based rainfall estimation is critical to building an optimal regional rainfall system, which can take advantages of the sampling differences of different sensors. This paper presents the real-time high-resolution QPE system developed for DFW urban radar network, which is based upon the combination of S-band WSR-88DP and X-band CASA radars. In addition, we focuses on the cross-comparison between rainfall estimation from this ground based QPE system and GPM rainfall products. The observations collected during the GPM satellite overpasses over DFW area will be used extensively in this study. Data alignment for better comparison will also be presented.

    Full Text Available The essay describes the conditions and process of the supply of timber from the forests managed by Opera of Santa Maria del Fiore during the construction of Brunelleschi’s dome. Furthermore it analyzes the employ of wooden structural elements in support of the building’s masonry and for scaffolding and other temporary apparatuses devised by the Florentine architect. The numerous supply contracts and payments allocated to the haulage contractors reveal the route followed by wooden materials from the forest to building yard and allow the identification of the various types of labor involved in the felling of trees, the preparation of logs and their transport. These documents specify the amount of timber ordered from each hauler and, in some cases, even the linear and volumetric dimensions of the wooden elements ordered by Opera. Such information has permitted the formulation of hypotheses about the structure and dimensions of temporary wooden scaffolding. The number of logs ordered, calculated year by year and related to the successive phases of the construction, reflect the changing requirements of wood for the building process as well as the political and economic situation of the city of Florence (wars, financial crises during the two decades of the construction of the cathedral’s great cupola. The resolutions of the consuls of Wool Guild and the Opera wardens regarding the forest administration testify to the existence of a bureaucratic structure charged with overseeing the woodland heritage. These sources vividly render the difficulties encountered in reconciling the intense exploitation of the forest for economic ends with the livelihood of the local population and, at the same time, with the necessity of ensuring the regeneration of a precious but exhaustible resource entrusted to the Opera’s care.

    Full Text Available La storiografia incentrata sul tema della Cassa per il Mezzogiorno è molto ampia e si sviluppa in relazione non solo alle questioni generali riguardanti l’intervento straordinario, ma anche alle molteplici forme di articolazione settoriale e territoriale dell’iniziativa pubblica per la ripresa e lo sviluppo del Sud. Una ricostruzione puntuale delle vicende della Cassa, che per oltre un quarantennio– anche se con diversità di impostazione nelle varie fasi –ha operato come strumento delle strategie per lo sviluppo del Mezzogiorno, richiede un impegno molto approfondito. Tuttavia, anche senza effettuare una dettagliata cronistoria dell’attività dell’Ente, si può ricomporre una visione d’insieme, attraverso l’interpretazione di un modello di intervento pubblico collegato strettamente agli eventi economici concreti e all’andamento dei processi di industrializzazione che hanno interessato i territori meridionali.La scelta di una prospettiva di lungo periodo, imperniata sull’analisi dell’intervento straordinario nel suo complesso, ha permesso un giudizio più equilibrato su tutta l’epoca dell’azione “aggiuntiva” dello Stato per il recupero del divario meridionale, superando eccessive semplificazioni nella valutazione di quell’esperienza e confutando pareri sommari sui suoi risultati, spesso privi di fondamento. Al tempo stesso, una visione ampia ha fatto emergere un percorso in grado di associare il caso della Cassa per il Mezzogiorno, controverso e difficile, ma considerato anche un modello tra i più avanzati a livello internazionale, a un tema di grande importanza, come quello delle politiche di sviluppo adottate per affrontare i problemi dell’arretratezza economica e per avviare a soluzione i dilemmi del dualismo.L’analisi effettuata ha provato l’esistenza di un indiscutibile progresso economico nel periodo della golden age. Durante quell’epoca di prosperità non solo si realizzò un notevole avanzamento

    1991-07-01

    Full Text Available Abstract The diet of the fox was studied by the analysis of 223 scats gathered monthly during 1985 and 1986. The different categories of food were quantified as relative frequency of occurrence (Fr% and as percentage of the mean bulk (Vm%. Mammals, mainly Rodents, were the staple food (Vm% annual=43.7 and reached the highest value in winter (Vm%=74.6 in January. Rats Rattus sp. were the principal rodents taken by foxes; they were probably preyed upon close to farmsteads where severa1 piles of garbage occurred. Birds were the second important prey category (Vm% annual=26.1 and were present at all time of the year; they were almost equally represented by Rallidae, Phasianidae, Anatidae and Passeriformes. Vegetables, mainly Rosaceae (Vm% annual=7.1 and Berberidaceae (Vm%=3.5 fruits, were also eaten all year rounds with a peak in summer (Vm%=82.2 in August. Insects, almost exclusively Coleoptera, carrions and garbage were less important items of the diet. Hares, rabbits, pheasants and wildfowl represented 23% of the annual mean bulk of ingested prey. The trophic niche breadth, evalued by the Levins' normalized index (B, was calculated using the relative frequencies (Fr and the mean volumes (Vm. The BFr and BVm values were not significantly different, although the former values were higher (BFr annual=O.61 against BVm=0.49, data of 1985 and 1986 pooled. The monthly distribution of both indexes throughout the year draws a bimodal pattern with the maximum values in May (BVm=O.79 and November (BVm=0,91 and the minimum values in January (BVm=0.31 and in August (BVm=O,40. The fox uses several food categories, but only some of them are seasonally important. Riassunto La dieta della specie è stata studiata analizzando 223 feci raccolte con cadenza mensile nel 1985 e 1986.

    L’idea della redenzione era di per sé antichissima, se in essa si include la liberazione dal bisogno, dalla fame, dalla siccità, dalla malattia e – infine – dalla sofferenza e dalla morte. Tuttavia la redenzione acquistò un significato specifico soltanto dove fu espressione di un’''immagine del mondo'' razionalizzata sistematicamente e di una presa di posizione in base a questa. Infatti ciò che la redenzione, secondo il suo senso e la sua qualità psicologica, voleva e poteva significare, dipe...

    In this paper a cost-effectiveness of gaseous vehicular emission reduction has been carried out for human mobility, over the transport network in Rome: in other words, once a reduction target of total emissions has been fixed for each pollutant, the most efficient abatement measures from a technical-economic point of view are selected. The optimization problem has been formalized considering linear functions both for the objective function and for constrains, i.e. within the classic linear programming framework, the objective being that of finding the diversion of present vehicular traffic to alternative technologies with lower emissions at minimum costs. A set of transport alternative measures has been considered and emission abatement cost minimization has been assumed as an objective function; specified abatements for CO (Carbon monoxide), NO{sub x} (nitrogen oxides) and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions have been introduced as constraints to the problem, expressed as reduction rates of estimated present emissions in the considered area. Model results show the distribution of present transportation capacity among possible alternatives for different hypothesis of emission reduction rates (reduction of 25%, 50%, 75%, 85% of present emissions and maximum feasible reduction within the specified constraints), and related costs. [Italian] In questo rapporto e' stata condotta un'analisi costi-efficacia relativa alla riduzione delle emissioni gassose veicolari dovute alla mobilita' urbana sulla rete di trasporto di Roma: in altre parole, fissata una quota di abbattimento delle emissioni complessive per ogni inquinante, sono state individuate le misure piu' efficienti dal punto di vista tecnico-economico che permettono di perseguire la riduzione prefissata. Il problema di ottimizzazione e' stato formalizzato definendo sia la funzione obiettivo che i relativi vincoli come funzioni lineari, e quindi nell'ambito della programmazione lineare classica, essendo l'obiettivo quello di trovare la diversione del traffico veicolare attuale verso delle tecnologie alternative con emissioni minori a costo minimo. E' stato considerato un insieme di misure di trasporto alternative e la minimizzazione dei costi e' stata assunta come funzione obiettivo; specifici abbattimenti per le emissioni di CO (monossido di carbonio), di NO{sub x} (ossidi di azoto) e di COV (Composti organici volatili) sono stati di volta in volta introdotti come vincoli di problema, sulla base di fissati livelli di riduzione a partire dalle emissioni attualmente stimate nell'area considerata. I risultati del modello mostrano la distribuzione dell'attuale capacita' di trasporto tra le alternative possibili secondo le diverse ipotesi di riduzione delle emissioni (25%, 50%, 75%, 85% ed il massimo realizzabile entro i vincoli specificati), e i costi relativi.

    Full Text Available Il contributo presenta alcuni documenti inediti su Lorenzo Lotto in grado di ampliare le conoscenze sul pittore veneto e sulle sue opere rimaste a Loreto dopo la morte. Alcune annotazioni contabili permettono di avanzare nuove ipotesi sulla consegna della pala Amici di Jesi, ultimo dipinto d'altare dell'artista. Un inventario della guardaroba del palazzo apostolico di Loreto del 1563 cita con certezza almeno sette dipinti di Lorenzo Lotto, quadri passati al santuario dopo l'oblazione del 1554. Nel 1580, infine, due «quadri in carta», identificabili con due cartoni delle tarsie di Bergamo, venivano venduti al governatore della Santa Casa Vincenzo Casali.  É così possibile riaprire la questione dell'ultimo periodo del maestro veneto a Loreto e individuare delle tracce per la dispersione di alcune delle sue opere.  The paper presents some unpublished documents on Lorenzo Lotto able to increase knowledge on the Venetian painter and his works remained in Loreto after his death. Some notes of account allow us to advance new hypotheses about the delivery of the Amici Altarpiece for Jesi, the last altarpiece of the artist. An inventory of the wardrobe of the Apostolic Palace of Loreto, dated 1563, mentions at least seven paintings by Lorenzo Lotto, passed to the sanctuary after the artist's oblation in 1554. In 1580, finally, two "pictures on paper," identified with two cartons of marquetries from Bergamo, were sold to the governor of the Holy House Vincenzo Casali. It is possible to reopen the question of the last period of the Venetian master in Loreto and identify the traces for the dispersion of some of his works.

    2009-01-01

    Violence impacts the lives of children on a daily basis. In their communities, they witness drive-by shootings, drug deals, and violence in their schools while many endure abuse, neglect, and violent behavior in their homes. Because the traumatizing impact of such exposure disrupts a child's ability to concentrate and learn, the Dallas Independent School District (ISD) sought content expertise to develop a training vehicle for school district professionals. The program aimed to raise the awareness of educators to problems related to domestic violence and the myriad of circumstances at home and in the community that lead to exposure to violence. Approximately 15,000 faculty and staff of Dallas ISD were educated in the identification, intervention, and prevention of exposure to violence. Referrals and inquiries related to abuse have increased (approximately 70%) while the city of Dallas has witnessed a drop in the number of domestic violence and child abuse offenses.

    Full Text Available Una concezione dell’emozione come intimamente connessa al modo in cui le persone interpretano o valutano ciò che accade secondo codici morali e riferimenti semantici locali, è stata proposta, a partire dalla seconda metà del XX secolo, da diversi autori, in differenti campi del sapere. Ciò nonostante, per quanto in molti resoconti etnografici si trovino riferimenti a stati emozionali, le emozioni sono state un oggetto di studio piuttosto trascurato dalla comunità antropologica.

Questo lavoro prende spunto dal 14° Rapporto sulla comunicazione del Censis per analizzare i processi in corso. In particolare, ci si focalizza sull’ingresso nella cosiddetta era biomediatica, caratterizzata dalla trascrizione virtuale e dalla condivisione telematica in tempo reale delle biografie personali attraverso i social network, che sanciscono il primato dell’io-utente, produttore esso stesso – oltre che fruitore – di contenuti.

A partire dalla definizione del romanzo come racconto di finzione, viene sviluppata  una posizione di cognitivismo radicale, per la quale il romanzo (a produce conoscenza modale; (b giustifica questa conoscenza in base al principio della verosimiglianza; (c favorisce l’apprendimento per esperienza in virtù dell’esemplificazione immaginativa. Le tesi proposte vengono corroborate in riferimento ai recenti dati sperimentali ottenuti dalle scienze cognitive, in particolare dalla psicologia cognitiva, sull’immaginazione, la finzione, la simulazione.

Deriva inoltre da quello che s'identifica nelle rassomiglianze di contenuto e/o nelle forme tra un segno attuale e un fatto passato. O ancora deriva dalla creatività dell'analizzante per predisporre il suo posto nella giungla dei desideri, dei territori, delle gelosie e delle invidie. Deriva infine dal sottile gioco tra il reale, l'immaginario ed il simbolico. Nella comunità di ricerca e di pratiche ci sono anche delle dinamiche sottili da identificare.

    Clear-cell renal-cell carcinomas display divergent clinical behaviours. However, the molecular genetic events driving these behaviours are unknown. We discovered that BAP1 is mutated in about 15% of clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma, and that BAP1 and PBRM1 mutations are largely mutually exclusive. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinicopathological significance of these molecular subtypes and to determine whether patients with BAP1-mutant and PBRM1-mutant tumours had different overall survival. In this retrospective analysis, we assessed 145 patients with primary clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma and defined PBRM1 and BAP1 mutation status from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW), TX, USA, between 1998 and 2011. We classified patients into those with BAP1-mutant tumours and those with tumours exclusively mutated for PBRM1 (PBRM1-mutant). We used a second independent cohort (n=327) from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) for validation. In both cohorts, more than 80% of patients had localised or locoregional disease at presentation. Overall both cohorts were similar, although the TCGA had more patients with metastatic and higher-grade disease, and more TCGA patients presented before molecularly targeted therapies became available. The median overall survival in the UTSW cohort was significantly shorter for patients with BAP1-mutant tumours (4·6 years; 95% CI 2·1-7·2), than for patients with PBRM1-mutant tumours (10·6 years; 9·8-11·5), corresponding to a HR of 2·7 (95% CI 0·99-7·6, p=0·044). Median overall survival in the TCGA cohort was 1·9 years (95% CI 0·6-3·3) for patients with BAP1-mutant tumours and 5·4 years (4·0-6·8) for those with PBRM1-mutant tumours. A HR similar to the UTSW cohort was noted in the TCGA cohort (2·8; 95% CI 1·4-5·9; p=0·004). Patients with mutations in both BAP1 and PBRM1, although a minority (three in UTSW cohort and four in TCGA cohort), had the worst overall survival (median 2·1 years, 95% CI 0·3-3·8, for the UTSW cohort, and 0·2 years, 0·0-1·2, for the TCGA cohort). Our findings identify mutation-defined subtypes of clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma with distinct clinical outcomes, a high-risk BAP1-mutant group and a favourable PBRM1-mutant group. These data establish the basis for a molecular genetic classification of clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma that could influence treatment decisions in the future. The existence of different molecular subtypes with disparate outcomes should be considered in the design and assessment of clinical studies.

    Full Text Available RiassuntoA partire dal 2009, l'Italia ha conosciuto una drammatica recessione nella quale i costi sociali si sono espressi anche nel progressivo aumento della disoccupazione giovanile e del vieppiù difficile accesso al lavoro per giovani e giovani-adulti.Sulla base di una ricerca etnografica svolta nella provincia di Alessandria, l'articolo mette in luce alcuni degli effetti culturali e sociali della sostanziale precarizzazione del mercato del lavoro. Le storie di vita e le parole dei giovani intervistati tratteggiano e mettono in luce il volto della crisi attuale; un quadro sociale complesso e di profonda trasformazione, in cui lo studio appare aver perso la sua capacità di essere scala sociale e strumento di emancipazione, e i giovani, venute meno quelle basi economiche per l'accesso ad una piena vita adulta indipendente, vedono la loro vita proiettarsi in un quadro di incertezza edi indeterminatezza.Parole chiave: Italia, lavoro, giovani, crisi, precarietàAccess to work during the Crisis: An ethnography of experiences and changes in Italy AbstractSince 2009, Italy has experienced a dramatic recession. The rise of unemployment and an increasingly difficult access to the job market for young and young-adults are two of the most evident effects of the economic crisis. The ethnographic research conducted in Alessandria province in 2012 shows the cultural and social effects of this substantial precarization of the job market. The life-stories of the informants outline the crisis in the eyes of a pool of young-adults. The research shows the decline of formal education as a social ladder and means of emancipation. It also points out the precarious conditions of the young adults that embody and endure the economic uncertainty as a source of social indetermination, being the potential economic basis for an independent life turned to be precarious or unreachable.Key word: Italy, work, young, crisis, job.

    Full Text Available Abstract From December 1986 to May 1988 the diet of the fox was studied by analysis of 539 droppings of which 349 gathered in a woodland (Province of Palermo throughout a year (1987 and 190 in different localities of the Sicily. Invertebrates (77%, mostly Arthropods, were the staple food, followed by fruits (38%, Mammals (31% and Birds (12%. Mammals were especially represented by small species (21% and occasionally by Lagomorphs (4%; they mainly occurred in winter and spring. Fruits and Invertebrates were eaten in a good number throughout the year with peaks of frequency in autumn and in summer. The feeding habits of the fox in Sicily are typical of a generalist species. Riassunto Da dicembre 1986 a maggio 1988, la dieta della Volpe è stata studiata mediante l'analisi di 539 feci, di cui 349 raccolte nel bosco di Ficuzza (provincia di Palermo, dove sono state evidenziate le variazioni stagionali delle categorie alimentari rilevate, e 190 in diverse località della Sicilia. I dati raccolti sono stati espressi come frequenza percentuale delle presenze. Le principali componenti della dieta sono gli Invertebrati (77% rappresentati soprattutto da Artropodi, i frutti (38%, i Mammiferi (31% e gli Uccelli (12%. I Mammiferi sono costituiti prevalentemente da specie di piccole dimensioni (21% e occasionalmente da Lagomorfi (4%, e sono predati soprattutto in inverno e primavera. I frutti e gli Invertebrati sono abbondantemente consumati per l'intero arco dell'anno e mostrano picchi di presenza in autunno e in estate. In Sicilia, le abitudini alimentari della Volpe sono tipiche di un predatore generalista.

  12. Considerations on global access to rights: anlysis of multilingual search tools

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ginevra Peruginelli

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available In una società globalizzata come quella odierna vi è una forte necessità, nell’accademia, nella professione legale, nel mondo degli affari ed in quello dei servizi della pubblica amministrazione, di una comune comprensione dei concetti giuridici dei diversi ordinamenti. Allo stesso tempo si assiste ad una forte pressione verso la conservazione del loro senso e valore. È difficile soddisfare entrambi i requisiti a causa della complessità del linguaggio giuridico e delle diverse modalità utilizzate per esprimere il diritto nei vari sistemi giuridici. A differenza di altre discipline, in cui esiste una corrispondenza tra i concetti espressi nelle varie lingue, nel diritto insorgono serie difficoltà di interpretazione dovute alla natura della terminologia giuridica, intimamente legata al sistema giuridico di riferimento. L'articolo offre alcuni spunti di riflessione sui requisiti dei sistemi di ricerca multilingue dell'informazione giuridica, esaminando gli aspetti linguistici e concettuali che devono essere presi in considerazione nello sviluppo di tali sistemi e soffermandosi sulle problematiche della traduzione giuridica, del diritto comparato e delle tecniche di elaborazione del linguaggio naturale ai fini dell’accesso e recupero dell'informazione in un contesto distribuito. Le raccomandazioni riguardano da un lato le metodologie per stabilire equivalenze funzionali fra concetti giuridici, dall'altro possibili forme di cooperazione fra istituzioni responsabili dell'indicizzazione e distribuzione di informazioni giuridiche. Tutto ciò per garantire ad ogni cittadino di accedere all’informazione nella molteplicità di lingue in cui si manifesta e allo stesso tempo di ricercarla nella lingua preferita.

    Full Text Available Un sistema di urban landscape spaces (spazi del paesaggio urbano può rappresentare un nuovo sistema di infrastrutture in grado di assorbire e limitare le alluvioni nelle stagioni delle piogge. Tale sistema sarà composto da elementi paesaggistici e spaziali riferiti a diverse scale e riconducibili a tre livelli: la micro scala (edificio e sito, la media scala (blocco e distretto e la macro scala (regione e metropoli. Per costruire tale sistema, specialmente su media scala, è fondamentale determinare la quantità, la distribuzione spaziale, l’area di servizio e il volume dell’acqua raccolta in questi landscape spaces. Il volume di acqua piovana e il tempo di raccolta sono due premesse di base. Il volume dell’acqua piovana conduce alla quantità e all’estensione degli spazi aperti. Il tempo di raccolta deriva dalla velocità e dall’estensione dei percorsi di deflusso dell’acqua piovana, mentre la velocità è determinata dalla morfologia, dall’altitudine e dalla resistenza superficiale. La distanza è determinata dalla posizione degli spazi aperti all’interno della rete stradale urbana. Analisi basate su sistemi GIS e DEM dovrebbero essere integrate per valutare l’area di servizio e il volume da dedicare alla raccolta delle acque di ogni spazio aperto. Questo approccio tecnico è applicato nella valutazione degli spazi aperti del vecchio quartiere di Nanjing, e alla valutazione della distribuzione degli spazi aperti esistenti nel distretto di Qinglong, Nanjing.

    Background Robbery-related homicides and assaults are the leading cause of death in retail businesses. Robbery reduction approaches focus on compliance to Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) guidelines. Purpose We evaluated the level of compliance to CPTED guidelines specified by convenience store safety ordinances effective in 2010 in Dallas and Houston, Texas, USA. Methods Convenience stores were defined as businesses less than 10 000 square feet that sell grocery items. Store managers were interviewed for store ordinance requirements from August to November 2011, in a random sample of 594 (289 in Dallas, 305 in Houston) convenience stores that were open before and after the effective dates of their city’s ordinance. Data were collected in 2011 and analysed in 2012–2014. Results Overall, 9% of stores were in full compliance, although 79% reported being registered with the police departments as compliant. Compliance was consistently significantly higher in Dallas than in Houston for many requirements and by store type. Compliance was lower among single owner-operator stores compared with corporate/franchise stores. Compliance to individual requirements was lowest for signage and visibility. Conclusions Full compliance to the required safety measures is consistent with industry ‘best practices’ and evidence-based workplace violence prevention research findings. In Houston and Dallas compliance was higher for some CPTED requirements but not the less costly approaches that are also the more straightforward to adopt. PMID:26337569

Many medical students decide against surgery as a profession due to the long work hours and family strain. The pregnant female surgical resident has an added stress factor compared to her male counterpart. Methods: We distributed an electronic, online 26-question survey to 32 general surgery programs in the southwestern region of the United States. Each program distributed our survey to the female surgical residents who had been pregnant during residency in the last 5 years. Each program was re-contacted 6 weeks after the initial contact. Most questions were in a 5-point Likert scale format. The responses were collected and analyzed using the Survey Monkey website. Results: An unvalidated survey was sent to 32 general surgery programs and 26 programs responded (81%. Each program was asked for the total number of possible responses from female residents that met our criteria (60 female residents. Seven of the programs (27% stated that they have had zero residents pregnant. We had 22 residents respond (37%. Over half of the residents (55% were pregnant during their 2nd or 3rd year of residency, with only 18% pregnant during a research year. Thirty-one percent had a lower American Board of Surgery In-Training Exam (ABSITE score. Ninety percent of the residents were able to take 4 weeks or more for maternity leave. Most of the residents (95% stated that they would do this again during residency given the opportunity, but many of the residents felt that returning back to work

    Full Text Available Abstract The diet of foxes in the Natural Park of Maremma includes essentially Juniperus fruits and Arthropods, mainly Coleoptera and Orthoptera. These components were analysed in order to value their chemical nutritive. The following parameters were determined: proximate analysis (crude protein Nx6.25; ether extract; crude fibre; ash, aminoacids, and mineral contents. Juniperus berries are characterized by a low crude protein and ash content (1.83 and 2.75% on dry matter while the level of fibrous constituents, expressed in terms of crude fibre, occurs in relatively high quantities (30.8% on dry matter. By contrast, Orthoptera and Coleoptera show high crude protein content (67.3 and 57.8% on dry matter of average nutritive value (chemical score 0.52 and 0.51. The ash level is 68.8 and 76.6 g/kg on dry matter, with high phosphorus, iron and zinc content. Juniperus berries are a feed component of moderate energy level, while Arthropods seem to be an important mineral and protein source. Riassunto La dieta della Volpe (Vulpes vulpes nel Parco Naturale della Maremma è costituita essenzialmente da frutti di Ginepro e da Artropodi, soprattutto Coleotteri ed Ortotteri. Allo scopo di fornire una valutazione delle caratteristiche chimico-nutritive di questi componenti alimentari, sono stati analizzati diversi campioni della dieta.

    In Italia i carcinomi del cavo orale (KCO sono diagnosticati
    prevalentemente al II-IV stadio TNM con conseguenti basse sopravvivenza a 5 anni e qualità della vita. Una maggior frequenza di diagnosi allo stadio I porterebbe a migliorare ampiamente i valori medi dei suddetti parametri.
    Scopo del presente lavoro è stato valutare l’efficacia di un programma di prevenzione secondaria del KCO in termini di aumento di diagnosi allo stadio I e di vite salvate.

    Abbiamo stimato la prevalenza di casi istopatologicamente
    accertati (livello C3 di leucoplachia, principale lesione precancerosa del KCO, nella ASL/RMA come prodotto tra la prevalenza stimata di leucoplachia diagnosticata clinicamente (livello C2 (2989,2Ĩ13077,7 e la proporzione, scelta arbitrariamente, di C3 tra i C2 (0,50.

    Tenendo presente che nel campione studiato nella ASL/RMA la proporzione di KCO allo stadio I tra i C3 era 0,03, abbiamo stimato il numero di KCO.

    Abbiamo stimato quanti KCO verrebbero diagnosticati allo stadio I se venisse attuato un programma di prevenzione secondaria, considerando diversi livelli di compliance, e sulla base di una sopravvivenza media a 5 anni, in Italia, del 53% per tutti gli stadi e del 79% per i KCO allo stadio I, abbiamo calcolato il numero di vite salvate.

    Full Text Available Questo lavoro presenta la stima di un modello econometrico del credito bancario alle imprese in Italia per il periodo 1988-2004. I prestiti bancari sono espressi in funzione del rapporto tra investimenti fissi e margine operativo lordo (che approssima il fabbisogno di finanziamenti esterni, delle attività immobilizzate nel bilancio delle imprese (misurate dallo stock di capitale e del differenziale tra il tasso sui prestiti a breve termine e il rendimento del mercato interbancario (che approssima il costo relativo del credito bancario rispetto a forme di finanziamento alternative. I risultati empirici evidenziano nel lungo periodo un legame diretto del credito bancario con le attività immobilizzate (l’elasticità è pari a uno e con il rapporto tra investimenti fissi e margine operativo lordo (l’incremento di un punto percentuale del rapporto produce un’espansione del credito del 2%. Le stime econometriche mostrano al contrario una correlazione negativa con il differenziale tra i tassi d’interesse: un aumento di 10 punti base del differenziale tra i tassi determinerebbe, infatti, una riduzione del credito nel lungo periodo pari allo 0,7%.   This paper presents the estimation of an econometric model of bank credit to firms in Italy for the period 1988-2004. Bank loans are expressed as a function of the ratio of fixed capital formation and gross operating margin (which approximates the external financing needs of fixed assets in the financial statements of companies (as measured by the stock of capital and the difference between the interest rate on short-term loans and efficiency of the interbank market (which approximates the relative cost of bank credit compared to alternative forms of financing.The empirical results show a direct link between long-term bank credit with fixed assets (the elasticity is equal to one and the ratio of fixed capital formation and gross operating profit (increase of one percentage point of the report

  12. Brain studies may alter long-held concepts about likely causes of some voice disorders

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1989-02-17

    Two voice disorders long considered to be psychological problems, stuttering and spasmodic dysphonia, have been shown in many persons to have a neurophysiological basis. Investigators at the 155th national meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, in San Francisco, described their findings, which are based on new analytic techniques. The research is being done at the Dallas Center for Vocal Motor Control, Callier Center for Communication Disorders, University of Texas at Dallas Health Science Center. The technology employed to learn what's wrong with the brains, rather than the psyches, of persons with certain speech disorders includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), brain electrical activity mapping (BEAM), and single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT). The results of applying these techniques are combined with quantitative behavioral measures of vocal and nonvocal motor control, language performance, and cognition to arrive at a better understanding of the problem.

  16. Italian comics and cinema: forms and functions of pornographic parody

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mauro Giori

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Il saggio si propone di indagare un fenomeno come il frequente ricorso alla parodia di testi preesistenti da parte della pornografia, un fenomeno tanto notorio quanto trascurato, anche dalla recente ondata di studi su questo particolare genere. Al centro dell’indagine viene posta una forma di pornografia che in Italia, tra gli anni ’60 e gli anni ’80, ha fatto da testa di ponte alla diffusione di quella cinematografica attraverso una produzione industriale vasta quanto peculiare: quella in forma di fumetto. Tale produzione verrà analizzata in una prospettiva intermediale, ovvero nelle sue molteplici relazioni con il mondo del cinema, che vanno dall’assegnazione di volti di attori celebri ad alcuni eroi delle sue serie fino alla vera e propria parodia di interi film. Si mettono così in luce caratteri e funzioni assolti dalla parodia nell’ambito specifico della pornografia.

    Full Text Available Il comune di Montieri ha recentemente costruito una rete di teleriscaldamento alimentata a vapore geotermico. L’aspetto innovativo risiede nell’uso del vapore geotermico di scarto dalla produzione di elettricità, per fornire riscaldamento e acqua calda sanitaria per 425 utenze del centro storico. Con il progetto Geothermal Community (Concerto, FP7 sono stati intrapresi ulteriori obiettivi per l’ambiente costruito: la riduzione del consumo energetico degli edifici e l’aumento della quota delle risorse energetiche rinnovabili utilizzate dalla comunità. L’articolo propone una analisi dei benefici ambientali ed economici delle misure di efficienza energetica pianificate dal progetto Europeo alla luce dell’installazione della rete di teleriscaldamento. I risultati presentano uno spunto di riflessione interessante per la formulazione dei piani di riduzione delle emissioni delle aree urbane storiche Italiane ed Europee dove sono presenti simili infrastrutture.

    Molte città in tutto il mondo si sono rivolte all’arte pubblica come strumento per trasformare un anonimo spazio in un luogo caratterizzato in maniera unica. Ho scelto di analizzare, come casi di studio, le politiche culturali legate all’arte pubblica messe in atto da alcune città del Regno Unito: l’iniziativa Coventry Phoenix della città di Coventry, Blue Carpert e altri progetti promossi dalla città di Newcastle upon Tyne, Up in the Air e Further Up in the Air fortemente volute dalla città di Liverpool. Tutte queste iniziative sono accomunate dal tentativo di migliorare l’ambiente urbano creando relazioni e collaborazioni con le comunità che di esso quotidianamente usufruiscono e che in esso vivono.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available Nonostante i massicci cambiamenti sociali e tecnologici che si sono verificati a causa del Web negli ultimi anni, i corsi universitari spesso enfatizzano metodi di insegnamento da tempo consolidati e basati su strumenti di apprendimento e risorse tradizionali. Durante tali corsi gli studenti spesso acquisiscono una conoscenza che non è aggiornata e che è lontana da un apprendimento realistico, basato su problemi. L'uso di strumenti e metodi più recenti spesso rimane fuori dalla padronanza degli studenti. In questo contributo si descrive brevemente l’impostazione sperimentale di un seminario in due università tedesche dove l’uso di Social Media per la comunicazione e la collaborazione è stato saldamente integrato alla progettazione di un percorso di apprendimento formale. Si illustra, inoltre, l'utilizzo di Twitter durante il seminario, usando metodologie riprese dalla Social Network Analysis.

  2. Jeanne Hersch: una filosofia dei contorni

    Roberta De Monticelli

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available A Si tracciano le linee fondamentali del pensiero di Jeanne Hersch (Ginevra, 1910-2000, che concepisce la filosofia come servizio anti-idolatrico nei confronti della trascendenza da un lato, e dall’altro come continua presa di coscienza dei gesti della libertà che fanno irriducibile al dato e insieme profondamente individuata, qui ed ora, la nostra vita. Si mostra come l’ontologia di questa pensatrice sia indissociabile dalla sua estetica, o piuttosto dalla sua teoria del fare umano quale partecipazione finita e incarnata alla creazione. Si mostra il nesso da lei particolarmente sottolineato fra consistenza morale personale e responsabilità del pensiero teorico, sulla base dell’esempio negativo di Heidegger, sostenitore del nazismo. Si discute la netta presa di posizione che Jeanne Hersch assume contro le seduzioni e le liturgie verbali del suo pensiero incantatorio, irresponsabile nei confronti della verità e “radicato nel disprezzo”.

    Full Text Available Negli anni 1921-1923 a Mosca, sulla scia delle profonde trasformazioni politiche e sociali innescate dalla Rivoluzione di ottobre si colloca un esperimento educativo originale, promosso da Vera Schmidt, una pedagogista formata alle idee psicoanalitiche, che si proponeva di cercare nuove vie educative per la prima infanzia sulla base delle recenti conquiste e conoscenze fornite dalla teoria psicoanalitica di S. Freud. Obiettivo di questo contributo è di fornire un breve excursus storico relativo alla diffusione della psicoanalisi in Unione sovietica e alla fondazione dell'asilo sperimentale di Mosca, di ricordare le figure delle due studiose Vera Schmidt e Sabina Spielrein che hanno animato l'iniziativa, il cui lavoro scientifico è rimasto in ombra rispetto a quello dei loro più famosi colleghi S. Freud e di C.G. Jung; infine si intende rendere conto dei principi educativi che esse cercarono di mettere in pratica nell'asilo sperimentale di Mosca.
