    The introduction of Artificial Intelligence into Nuclear Power Plant control rooms may have some unexpected and undersired psychological effects on the control room operators of the plant. These will arise from problems of 'interpersonal' relationships between Artificial Intelligences (AI) and Natural Intelligences (NI). Some of them will stem especially from a perception of loss of control over the work and the working environment. The discuss why perceptions of loss of control might arise, what some of the effects might be, and propose some ways of preventing their occurrence or overcoming their effects

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this exercise was to develop an improved model of ministerial and spiritual formation in the training of ministers in the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa at the University of Pretoria. This is a perennial problem in many churches where there is a general dissatisfaction with the products, (i.e. ministers not only in terms of personal spirituality but in their inability to minister effectively in the many diverse situations to which they are called or appointed. The exercise of power becomes an issue in a vocation which is premised on servant ministry and so Juvenal’s quotation is apt as it is expressed as ‘Who can be trusted with authority/power?’.

  4. Unit commitment with probabilistic reserve: An IPSO approach

    Lee, Tsung-Ying; Chen, Chun-Lung

    2007-01-01

    This paper presents a new algorithm for solution of the nonlinear optimal scheduling problem. This algorithm is named the iteration particle swarm optimization (IPSO). A new index, called iteration best, is incorporated into particle swarm optimization (PSO) to improve the solution quality and computation efficiency. IPSO is applied to solve the unit commitment with probabilistic reserve problem of a power system. The outage cost as well as fuel cost of thermal units was considered in the unit commitment program to evaluate the level of spinning reserve. The optimal scheduling of on line generation units was reached while minimizing the sum of fuel cost and outage cost. A 48 unit power system was used as a numerical example to test the new algorithm. The optimal scheduling of on line generation units could be reached in the testing results while satisfying the requirement of the objective function

    A theoretical basis for the regulation of corporate security warning and resources was provided in order to reveal the laws behind the security state in mine production logistics. Considering complex mine production logistics system and the variable is difficult to acquire, a superior security status predicting model of mine production logistics system based on the improved particle swarm optimization and support vector machine (IPSO-SVM) is proposed in this paper. Firstly, through the linear adjustments of inertia weight and learning weights, the convergence speed and search accuracy are enhanced with the aim to deal with situations associated with the changeable complexity and the data acquisition difficulty. The improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) is then introduced to resolve the problem of parameter settings in traditional support vector machines (SVM). At the same time, security status index system is built to determine the classification standards of safety status. The feasibility and effectiveness of this method is finally verified using the experimental results.

    Solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays in remote applications are often related to the rapid changes in the partial shading pattern. Rapid changes of the partial shading pattern make the tracking of maximum power point (MPP) of the global peak through the local ones too difficult. An essential need to make a fast and efficient algorithm to detect the peaks values which always vary as the sun irradiance changes. This paper presents two algorithms based on the improved particle swarm optimization technique one of them with PID controller (IPSO-PID), and the other one with Brain Emotional Learning Based Intelligent Controller (IPSO-BELBIC). These techniques improve the maximum power point (MPP) tracking capabilities for photovoltaic (PV) system under partial shading circumstances. The main aim of these improved algorithms is to accelerate the velocity of IPSO to reach to (MPP) and increase its efficiency. These algorithms also improve the tracking time under complex irradiance conditions. Based on these conditions, the tracking time of these presented techniques improves to 2 msec, with an efficiency of 100%.

    Sea ice affects primary production in polar regions in multiple ways. It can dampen water column productivity by reducing light or nutrient supply, provide a habitat for ice algae and condition the marginal ice zone (MIZ) for phytoplankton blooms on its seasonal retreat. The relative importance of three different carbon sources (sea ice derived, sea ice conditioned, non-sea-ice associated) for the polar food web is not well understood, partly due to the lack of methods that enable their unambiguous distinction. Here we analysed two highly branched isoprenoid (HBI) biomarkers to trace sea-ice-derived and sea-ice-conditioned carbon in Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) and relate their concentrations to the grazers' body reserves, growth and recruitment. During our sampling in January-February 2003, the proxy for sea ice diatoms (a di-unsaturated HBI termed IPSO25, δ13C = -12.5 ± 3.3 ‰) occurred in open waters of the western Scotia Sea, where seasonal ice retreat was slow. In suspended matter from surface waters, IPSO25 was present at a few stations close to the ice edge, but in krill the marker was widespread. Even at stations that had been ice-free for several weeks, IPSO25 was found in krill stomachs, suggesting that they gathered the ice-derived algae from below the upper mixed layer. Peak abundances of the proxy for MIZ diatoms (a tri-unsaturated HBI termed HBI III, δ13C = -42.2 ± 2.4 ‰) occurred in regions of fast sea ice retreat and persistent salinity-driven stratification in the eastern Scotia Sea. Krill sampled in the area defined by the ice edge bloom likewise contained high amounts of HBI III. As indicators for the grazer's performance we used the mass-length ratio, size of digestive gland and growth rate for krill, and recruitment for the biomass-dominant calanoid copepods Calanoides acutus and Calanus propinquus. These indices consistently point to blooms in the MIZ as an important feeding ground for pelagic grazers. Even though ice

    Highlights: ► New approach to solve power systems dynamic economic dispatch. ► Considering Valve-point effect, prohibited operation zones. ► Proposing TVAC-IPSO algorithm. - Abstract: The objective of the dynamic economic dispatch (DED) problem is to schedule power generation for the online units for a given time horizon economically, satisfying various operational constraints. Due to the effect of valve-point effects and prohibited operating zones (POZs) in the generating units cost functions, DED problem is a highly non-linear and non-convex optimization problem. The DED problem even may be more complicated if transmission losses and ramp-rate constraints are taken into account. This paper presents a novel and heuristic algorithm to solve DED problem of generating units, by employing time varying acceleration coefficients iteration particle swarm optimization (TVAC-IPSO) method. The effectiveness of the proposed method is examined and validated by carrying out extensive tests on different test systems, i.e. 5-unit and 10-unit test systems. Valve-point effects, POZs and ramp-rate constraints along with transmission losses are considered. To examine the efficiency of the proposed TVAC-IPSO algorithm, comprehensive studies are carried out, which compare convergence properties of the proposed TVAC-IPSO approach with conventional PSO algorithm, in addition to the other recently reported approaches. Numerical results show that the TVAC-IPSO method has good convergence properties and the generation costs resulted from the proposed method are lower than other algorithms reported in recent literature.

    By using (N-tosyloxy)-3-O-carbamoyl-D-glucal 10, which removes the need for a hypervalent iodine(III) oxidant, we provide evidence for rhodium nitrenoid-mediated ipso C–H activation as the origin of a C3-oxidized dihydropyranone product 3. This system may be especially susceptible to such a pathway due to the ease of forming a cation upon hydride transfer to the rhodium-complexed acyl nitrene. PMID:21381715

  14. The Bidirectional Optimization of Carbon Fiber Production by Neural Network with a GA-IPSO Hybrid Algorithm

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available A hybrid approach of genetic algorithm (GA and improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO is proposed to construct the radial basis function neural network (RNN for real-time optimizing of the carbon fiber manufacture process. For the three-layer RNN, we adopt the nearest neighbor-clustering algorithm to determine the neurons number of the hidden layer. When the appropriate network structure is fixed, we present the GA-IPSO algorithm to tune the parameters of the network, which means the center and the width of the node in the hidden layer and the weight of output layer. We introduce a penalty factor to adjust the velocity and position of the particles to expedite convergence of the PSO. The GA is used to mutate the particles to escape local optimum. Then we employ this network to develop the bidirectional optimization model: in one direction, we take production parameters as input and properties indices as output; in this case, the model is a carbon fiber product performance prediction system; in the other direction, we take properties indices as input and production parameters as output, and at this situation, the model is a production scheme design tool for novel style carbon fiber. Based on the experimental data, the proposed model is compared to the conventional RBF network and basic PSO method; the research results show its validity and the advantages in dealing with optimization problems.

    The direct carboxylation of the ipso-C(sp 2 )-H bond of a diazo compound with carbon dioxide under mild reaction conditions is described. This method is transition-metal-free, uses a weak base, and proceeds at ambient temperature under atmospheric pressure in carbon dioxide. The carboxylation exhibits high reactivity and is amenable to subsequent diversification. A series of unsymmetrical 1,3-diester/keto/amide diazo compounds are obtained with moderate to excellent yields (up to 99%) with good functional group compatibility.

    Full Text Available Intramolecular hydrogen bonding (HB is one of the most studied noncovalent interactions of molecules. Many physical, spectral, and topological properties of compounds are under the influence of HB, and there are many parameters used to notice and to describe these changes. Hitherto, no general method of measurement of the energy of intramolecular hydrogen bond (EHB has been put into effect. We propose the molecular tailoring approach (MTA for EHB calculation, modified to apply it to Ar-O-H∙∙∙O=C systems. The method, based on quantum calculations, was checked earlier for hydroxycarbonyl-saturated compounds, and for structures with resonance-assisted hydrogen bonding (RAHB. For phenolic compounds, the accuracy, repeatability, and applicability of the method is now confirmed for nearly 140 structures. For each structure its aromaticity HOMA indices were calculated for the central (ipso ring and for the quasiaromatic rings given by intramolecular HB. The comparison of calculated HB energies and values of estimated aromaticity indices allowed us to observe, in some substituted phenols and quinones, the phenomenon of transfer of aromaticity from the ipso-ring to the H-bonded ring via the effect of electron delocalization.

    2015-08-07

    A metal and base free synthesis of primary amines has been developed at ambient temperature through ipso amination of diversely functionalized organoboronic acids, employing a combination of [bis(trifluoroacetoxy)iodo]benzene (PIFA)-N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) and methoxyamine hydrochloride as the aminating reagent. The amines were primarily obtained as their trifluoroacetate salts which on subsequent aqueous alkaline work up provided the corresponding free amines. The combination of PIFA-NBS is found to be the mildest choice compared to the commonly used strong bases (e.g. n-BuLi, Cs2CO3) for activating the aminating agent. The reaction is expected to proceed via activation of the aminating reagent followed by B-N 1,2-aryl migration.

Liners, airplanes, and automobiles are shown as the expression of the powerful beauty of practical form: honest, simple, functional and technological. These very famous pages remind us that form is not only derived from precise typological choices or from reasoned morphogenetic diagrams, but it could also be a direct expression of the Kunstwollen. What are the paquebots of the twenty-first century? Which buildings embody this new paradigm? This graphic analysis starts from the statement that one of the ‘not seen’ features of this era is the smartphone. The subject of the survey is the first BMW Guggenheim Lab, designed in 2010 by Atelier Bow-Wow. Described by the architects themselves as a ‘travel toolbox’ or ‘pop-up fly loft theatre in the city’, this compact architecture is the incarnation of three interesting formal qualities usually associated with smartphones: the clear division between the hardware and the ergonomic user interface; the possibility to operate different functions (or software in the same space (or screen; and the real and virtual connection with different urban situations.

    Full Text Available This article examines a little-known compilation film titled Sauve la vie (qui peut that Jean-Luc Godard created in 1981 within the framework of a series of lectures on cinema history that he delivered in Rotterdam in 1980-1981. To make this compilation film he combined sections from his Sauve qui peut (la vie with extracts from four other films. Based on archival research, the article considers the context for the screening, the film’s structure, Godard’s wider engagement with the filmmakers whose work he incorporated, the prints he used, my attempts to reconstruct the film, and its reception in 1981 and today.

  4. Qui a peur du harcèlement sexuel ? des femmes témoignent

    CERN Document Server

    Ducret, Véronique

    2010-01-01

    Le harcèlement sexuel au travail est un comportement banalisé tant par les auteurs que par les collègues et les responsables hiérarchiques. Cette attitude contribue à maintenir les victimes dans le silence et c'est pour briser ce cercle que Véronique Ducret a choisi de récolter et publier les témoignages de dix femmes. Les parcours de ces femmes, semés d'embûches, montrent qu'elles ont essayé de se faire entendre ; pour certaines, au risque de perdre leur place de travail. Si le harcèlement sexuel est douloureux, plus insupportable encore est l'incompréhension à laquelle elles ont dû faire face. Ces femmes témoignent ici des stratégies qu'elles ont utilisées pour faire reconnaître ce qu'elles ont subi. Cet ouvrage s'adresse à toutes les femmes qui travaillent et qui ont été ou risquent d'être confrontées un jour au harcèlement sexuel. Ces récits permettront à certaines de se reconnaître dans ces situations et peut-être de dévoiler à leur tour, et sans honte, les violences sexuel...

  8. Le soja local en Allemagne, une demande soutenue, une offre qui s’étoffe

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Recknagel Jürgen

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Depuis 2009, la sole de soja ne cesse d’augmenter en Allemagne, surtout dans le sud du pays mais aussi à l’est et un peu partout dans les régions au climat propice. Un programme national a permis de créer les références nécessaires pour un conseil qualifié apporté aux agriculteurs via un réseau de développement. Ainsi toute une filière soja est déjà bien avancée dans le sud et en cours de mise en place dans le reste du pays, pour organiser la collecte auprès des producteurs et obtenir une offre groupée pour les transformateurs pour l’alimentation animale et humaine. Le soja allemand ne veut pas rivaliser avec le soja OGM ni pour instant avec le soja non-OGM des Amériques mais vise plutôt les filières courtes régionales et le marché bio qui est encore plus déficitaire en auto-approvisionnement que le conventionnel. Avec 10 000 ha en 2014, dont 25 % en bio, le soja en Allemagne est encore loin de la surface du maïs grain (2008–2014 autour de 500 000 ha. En pratique, 20 % de ces surfaces de maïs au climat a priori propice pourraient représenter le potentiel réel pour le soja en Allemagne, sous condition de prix garantissant une rentabilité suffisante par rapport aux autres grandes cultures. Pour les programmes non-OGM des grands distributeurs, il faut de toute façon une base de production élargie comme celle proposée par l’initiative Danube-Soja, qui dans une version Europe-Soja engloberait aussi la France. Avec le verdissement de la PAC et la montée du cours du Dollar par rapport à l’Euro, les perspectives pour une augmentation de la surface de production de soja en Allemagne et en Europe paraissent bonnes. Maintenant il faut travailler sur les débouchés pour garantir l’absorption de la production grandissante par les marchés et les consommateurs à tous les niveaux : régional, national et européen.

  9. What Will the New Generation Generate? Gendering Accumulation in Fatou Diome’s Celles qui attendent

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Christopher Hogarth

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I focus on the penultimate installment of the oeuvre of the much-celebrated Franco-Senegalese writer Fatou Diome, whose largely autobiographical work has garnered a wide following and a lucrative contract with the Flammarion publishing house. I propose that Diome’s 2010 novel Celles qui attendent strongly contributes to a discourse surrounding the roles of males and females in an African economy increasingly dominated by migration. Diome started as a writer who portrayed the empowered role of the female migrant, who is able to accumulate financial capital in Europe and send it back to Africa in order for males to slowly hoard goods and start businesses. Her more recent work, however, has been marked by a shift to reflect a portrait of Senegalese society and migration that is backed by sociological studies: men take on the role of migrants, tempted by “marchands d’illusions” 'merchants of illusions,' but are also determined to get away from social pressures in order to accumulate their own set of experiences in the world, at a distance from the expectations of a traditional African society. Women, on the other hand, are left in extreme proximity to the problems of everyday life on a cash-starved continent, as they have to go about the business of surviving and raising children, engaging in many forms of hoarding that have to do with accumulating finance, memories and myths.

    Full Text Available Nació en Cereté, Córdoba, el 28 de abril de 1925, murió en Bogotá, el 27 de abril de 2015, a la edad de 90 años. Transcurría el año 1950 cuando estudiaba medicina en la Universidad Javeriana en Bogotá. Una tarde casi noche, con el frío sabanero, conocí un personaje cuyo nombre era Arturo Morillo Quiñones, el cual generaría en mí un impacto a diferentes niveles: intelectuales, científicos y humanos, en especial por su manera de ser auténtica, veraz, cálida, con un amplio humor, leal, inteligente, real y brillante. Por aquellos años 1950 establecimos una relación de una profunda amistad. Así vinieron diferentes hechos de nuestras historias personales y el conocimiento de la vida familiar, así como nuestras experiencias. Arturo relataba una serie de reminiscencias vividas de niño por allá en la región del Sinú, el Magdalena, y toda la región llamada de la “Costa Caribe”. Las narraciones que él hacía tenían un tinte de fascinación y despertaban al niño que todos guardamos, y que le seduce esa clase de historias, las cuales oscilaban entre la realidad y la fantasía, lo absurdo y lo lógico, lo primitivo imaginario de sueños despiertos a la realidad, además de una multiplicidad de creencias supersticiones dirigidas por el pensamiento mágico. Personalmente no cesaba de preguntar sobre detalles de los contenidos de las narraciones. Aquí consigno, cómo en los años 1967 volví a leer en textos novelescos estos mismos relatos de Arturo Morillo; ahora escritos por un genio Nobel, Gabriel García Márquez. El doctor Arturo Morillo Quiñones, académico y neurocientífico acabó sus estudios de medicina en 1951 y se graduó en 1954 en la misma Universidad Javeriana; realizó su postgrado en electroencefalografía y neurofisiología en National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland.

    Full Text Available Fruit d’une enquête ethnographique auprès des correspondants de la presse étrangère en Israël dans les années 2000, cet article analyse la façon dont les relations des journalistes avec les différents états et nations (y compris les leurs impliqués dans le conflit, affectent leur travail. Il montre comment les journalistes, en fonction de leurs appartenances nationales ou ethniques, sont sommés de prendre parti vis-à-vis de multiples acteurs, ce qui déstabilise la possibilité d’une couverture « neutre » ou « extérieure » acceptable par tous. Cette déstabilisation est analysée à quatre niveaux. 1. Le monde professionnel des journalistes est traversé par ce conflit qui est perçu comme très proche, « quasiment une affaire de politique intérieure », les divisions étant politiques mais aussi nationales, singulièrement entre journalistes américains et européens. 2. Les journalistes sont sommés par les deux parties au conflit, toutes deux très soucieuses de leur image, l’Etat d’Israël recourant aux brimades – ou à la force vis-à-vis des gens d’image palestiniens, les deux partis étant « assoiffés de médias » ; 3. Les journalistes sont mis en cause en raison de leurs origines juive ou arabe, réelles ou supposées ; 4. Enfin des publics nationaux, proisraéliens ou propalestiniens, que le conflit divise, eux-mêmes dotés de moyens de surveillance et de critique nouveaux (satellites, internet, s’en prennent aux correspondants dont le travail ne correspond pas à leur attente.This study is based on an ethnographic investigation of foreign-press correspondentsin Israel/Palestine in the year 2000.

    This paper describes the analysis, design and characterization of a polarimetric receiver developed for covering the 35 to 47 GHz frequency band in the new instrument aimed at completing the ground-based Q-U-I Joint Tenerife Experiment. This experiment is designed to measure polarization in the Cosmic Microwave Background. The described high frequency instrument is a HEMT-based array composed of 29 pixels. A thorough analysis of the behaviour of the proposed receiver, based on electronic phase switching, is presented for a noise-like linearly polarized input signal, obtaining simultaneously I, Q and U Stokes parameters of the input signal. Wideband subsystems are designed, assembled and characterized for the polarimeter. Their performances are described showing appropriate results within the 35-to-47 GHz frequency band. Functionality tests are performed at room and cryogenic temperatures with adequate results for both temperature conditions, which validate the receiver concept and performance.

    Full Text Available Catherine Taine-Cheikh, qui s'intéresse au phénomène de l'injure dans la société arabophone de Mauritanie, commence par étudier les différents termes du dialecte hassâniyya qui relèvent de ce champ sémantique. Elle s'attache ensuite à montrer l'importance et la complexité de l'« effet injure », dans cette société fortement imprégnée par les valeurs de l'honneur où non seulement la critique mais aussi la louange peuvent apparaître comme des manifestations de l'injure. Passant en revue diverses situations empruntées à la vie quotidienne ou puisées dans des matériaux littéraires (écrits et surtout oraux, l'auteur relève diverses stratégies adoptées, soit par les injurieurs, soit par les injuriaires, pour tenter de maîtriser les effets des mots (ou gestes « déplacés ». Bien que le problème du contrôle de soi semble presque toujours primordial, la gestion de l'injure laisse apparaître une différenciation importante en fonction du sexe et du statut relatif des acteurs sociaux concernés.

    Full Text Available Dans cet article nous proposons d’étudier les titres de groupes facebook dont les dénominations visent à dévaloriser les locuteurs qui ne maîtrisent pas la norme linguistique. On verra que lorsqu’il s’agit de la maîtrise de la langue, les internautes stigmatisent les accrocs à la norme et peuvent adopter des attitudes d’une extrême violence : les fautes sont considérées comme insultantes pour ceux qui maîtrisent la langue. La violence verbale observée trouverait sa légitimité dans le fait qu’il y a « outrage à la langue » : les locuteurs « censeurs » seraient dès lors autorisés à produire un discours violent « outrageant » vis-à-vis des faiseurs de fautes. Nos analyses montreront que l’appel au regroupement contre les « locuteurs-fauteurs » repose sur une doxa commune (l’importance de la maîtrise de la langue plutôt que sur une argumentation explicite.

The internet users stigmatize tears in norm and can adopt attitudes of an extreme violence: errors are considered as insulting for those who master the language. The “offense to the language” is supposed to legitimize verbal violence: the speakers “censors” would since then be authorized to produce a violent speech "offending" in relation to the miracle-workers of errors. Our analyses will show that the call to grouping against the “speakers-troublemakers” rests on a common doxa (the importance of the workmanship of the language rather than on a definite argumentation.

    2003-01-01

    The Higgs boson was theoretically created about 40 years ago by a Scott Peter Higgs who wanted to explain why some particles get a mass. Since then the Higgs boson has taken consistency and has become an important point of the standard model theory. Its experimental discovery would be a milestone of modern physics. The search for the Higgs boson is an international challenge that takes place around 2 huge machines: the Tevatron near Chicago and the LHC (large hadron collider) that is being built in CERN. The Tevatron is in fact the upgrading of an old particle accelerator, it is a proton collider and its narrow range of energy is compensated by a low background noise. On the other hand the LHC will begin operating only in 2007 and its full power will be reached a few years later, the energy available to create particles will be then 7 times higher than for the Tevatron. Both machines have chance of succeeding by being the first to detect the Higgs boson. Time plays in favor of the Tevatron but in any case if ...

Le choix et l’occupation d’un siège dans ces salles ne relève pas de la recherche d’un optimum technique de visionnement de la projection du film.  Une différenciation de certains comportements peut s’observer selon la composition du public qui varie elle-même selon la salle, le film ou  l’heure de séance, mais les interactions mimétiques entre spectateurs sont indéniables, et des mécanismes d’influence récurrents, indépendants de la composition du public, et peuvent être structurés par l’architecture et l’espace de la salle elle-même. L’essentiel des comportements de choix et libération des sièges obéissent avant tout à des règles et stratégies d’occupation d’un espace et d’un territoire, fortement conditionnées par l’âge et surtout le sexe du spectateur.The observation and the analysis of the spectators’ behavior entering a cinema, choosing their places then releasing them at the end of the meeting, made possible to highlight many common characteristics. The choice and the occupation of a seat don’t concern the search for a technical optimum of viewing of the film’s projection. A differentiation of certain behaviors can be observed according to the composition of the public which varies itself according to the room, film or the hour of meeting, but the interactions mimetic between spectators is undeniable, and the recurring mechanisms of influence, independent of public’s composition, and can be structured by the architecture and the space of the room itself. The main part of behaviors for the choice and the release of the seats first obey rules and strategies of occupation of a space and a territory, strongly conditioned by the age and especially the sex

    Purpose The increased practice of traditional Chinese medicine worldwide has raised concerns regarding herb-drug interactions. We analyzed the usage of Chinese herbal products containing dang-qui and investigated whether dang-qui therapy increases endometrial cancer risk among tamoxifen-treated breast cancer survivors in Taiwan. Methods All patients newly diagnosed with invasive breast cancer who received tamoxifen treatment from January 1, 1998, to December 31, 2008 were selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database. The usage, frequency of service and type of Chinese herbal products containing dang-qui prescribed across the 31,970 survivors were evaluated. Logistic regression method was employed to estimate the odds ratios for utilization of Chinese herbal products containing dang-qui. Cox proportional hazard regression was performed to calculate the hazard ratio of endometrial cancer associated with dang-qui use within the cohort. Results Almost one in two study subjects had used dang-qui. Among 31,938 tamoxifen-treated breast cancer survivors, 157 cases of subsequent endometrial cancer were identified. The hazard ratio for development of endometrial cancer among breast cancer survivors aged 20–79 years who had taken dang-qui after tamoxifen treatment was decreased compared to survivors who had never used dang-qui (HR: 0.61, 95%CI: 0.44–0.84). To minimise potential confounding factors, women with breast cancer in the reproductive age were excluded from further analysis, and the negative relationship between dang-qui consumption and subsequent endometrial cancer among breast cancer survivors aged 55–79 years was still observed, although not significantly (HR: 0.74, 95%CI: 0.46–1.17). Conclusions Dang-qui consumption is common among breast cancer survivors aged 20–79 years and seems decrease the risk of subsequent endometrial cancer after less than a cumulative dose of 7,500 mg of tamoxifen treatment.

    A study has been made of the phenomena occurring in the neighbourhood of a growing crystal-face, with the help of several methods based on interferometric observation. If the system is considered at a given moment, it is possible to express the growth rate of the crystal in two ways: 1) using the origin of the solute contributing to the growth, by application of Fick's law modified in certain cases by a correction factor involving the absolute value of the concentration near the crystal face. 2) directly, using the supersaturation in the crystal-face neighbourhood. On the other hand, if an attempt is made to take into account the changes in growth rate with time, it is seen that this rate is not dependent on diffusion phenomena, but that the convection currents in the solution play an important role. (author) [French] Les phenomenes qui ont lieu dans la solution au voisinage d'un cristal en voie de croissance ont ete etudies grace a plusieurs methodes d'observation interferometriques. Si l'on considere la preparation a un instant donne, il est possible d'exprimer la vitesse de croissance du cristal de deux manieres: 1) a partir de la provenance du solute necessaire a la croissance, par application de l'equation de Fick moyennant, dans certains cas, un facteur correctif faisant intervenir la valeur absolue de la concentration au voisinage de la face, 2) directement a partir de la sursaturation qui regne pres de la face. Par contre, si l'on essaie de rendre compte de l'evolution de la vitesse de croissance au cours du temps, on voit que celle-ci n'est pas commandee par les phenomenes de diffusion, mais que les courants de convection qui existent dons la solution jouent un role important.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Silvia Nugara

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available The article deals with the rhetoric and discursive strategies through which surrealist artist and writer Clade Cahun elaborates forms of self-representations which, by subverting gender norms, reinvent non only femininity but humanity overall. The analysis will be carried out on the basis of Roland Barthes’ reflections on androgyny which he elaborated during his course on Neutre at the Collège de France. For Barthes, Neutre is a vector of symbolic change: « un mélange, un dosage, une dialectique, non de l’homme et de la femme (génitalité, mais du masculin et du féminin. Ou mieux encore: l’homme en qui il y a du féminin, la femme en qui il y a du masculin ». Neutre is whatever breaks the binary opposition between terms A and B by assuming the form of either “not A nor B”, or “A+B”. Neutre is therefore an attempt to elude the doxa and all immutable binary scheme of meaning through linguistic and rhetoric strategies such as epicene nouns and names, impersonals, a fluctuant use of gender forms, amphibology, irony, paradox, parallelism, antiphrasis.

    Comme tous les travailleurs, les chercheurs ne peuvent échapper à l'évaluation. Celle-ci ne peut être conduite par eux-mêmes. De nombreuses questions se posent : qui doit les évaluer ? À quel rythme ? Et surtout, sur quelles bases ? Sur leur réputation, leurs interventions, leur implication dans la discipline, leur présence dans la littérature scientifique ? Mais alors quelle littérature ? Comment apprécier cette présence ? Par le nombre de textes publiés ? La diversité des revues ? Par l'écho qu'ont les textes dans la littérature ? La bibliométrie tend aujourd'hui à saturer l'évaluation. Elle est une réponse à quelques-unes de ces questions. Elle propose une forme d'évaluation comptable qu'on voudrait objective mais qui comporte de nombreuses limites et ambiguïtés. Ce livre présente quelques outils bibliométriques comme les fameux «facteur d'impact» et «h-index» et, à travers une analyse des pratiques mises en oeuvre, montre que l'objectivité n'est pas au rendez-vous et que...

    Full Text Available Nous nous penchons ici sur les proverbes introduits par les pronoms et par des syntagmes nominaux pour déterminer dans quelle mesure la structure syntaxique joue sur la structure informative de ces énoncés qui acquièrent un sens conventionnel codé. Nous les rapprochons des énoncés génériques, sans perdre de vue les propriétés auxquelles satisfont la plupart des proverbes : généricité, schéma implicatif et montée hypo-hypéronymique. Comme la classe des proverbes n’est pas formellement homogène, nous aboutissons, d’une part, à l’établissement d’une sous-classe des proverbes dits pronominaux et, d’autre part, à une nouvelle typologie des proverbes, très proche de celle des phrases génériques qui fait consensus.

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available Si le recueil Cœur élégie rouge de James Sacré fait bien apparaître l’ombre d’une femme aimée et perdue, ne voir dans cette élégie qu’une dimension autobiographique serait réducteur, et il faut peut-être y entendre aussi, selon une approche réflexive, le poème qui échoue à restituer le monde, le végétal, les visages. De la sorte, l’élégie serait aussi le deuil de ce rêve, avec le constat de l’incompatibilité du poème et du monde, pour peu que le sujet lyrique s’abandonne à un aveu naïf de son amour. Le poème doit donc se reconstruire comme espérance, projet incessamment relancé d’une écriture par quoi la vie continue. L’élégie ne se contente plus de chanter la perte ni de méditer sur l’inadéquation de la langue, elle tire sa force d’un espoir qui renaît toujours et dont témoigne la prégnance de la métaphore végétale.

C’est cette transformation de la production urbanistique, co-occurrente d’une transformation de la condition d’urbaniste, que discute cet article. Pour ce faire, il revient sur l’avènement d’un urbanisme de coordination consécutif à la généralisation de l’idéologie du projet urbain. Dans un deuxième temps, l’hypothèse d’une dématérialisation de l’urbanisme corrélatif à l’émergence d’un paradigme du mouvant est discutée. Enfin, l’émergence des valeurs et du récit dans la conduite de projet urbain, simultanément à un affaissement de la règle et de la regula, est envisagée du point de vue de la reconfiguration du champ de la pratique professionnelle qu’il occasionne. Mobilisant librement le matériau d’une recherche récente consacrée aux métiers du territoire, il montre que les transformations en cours ne s’effectuent pas sans accroc, contrairement à ce qu’en disent les apologistes du nouvel urbanisme.

    Full Text Available The restoration of the Arroyo (stream de los Quiñones (San Sebastián de los Reyes poses a problem whose solution consists in neutralizing the principal sources of its degradation. These sources are: waste water discharges, an urban solid waste dump, situated in the very bed of the stream, and the intensive aggregate extraction which made the stream itself disappear at various points. This article also deals with the recuperation of the surrounding wood in a natural and landscape-friendly way, which would facilitate the access and the walk along the sides of the stream. This would lead to the clearing of other areas of a high ecological value within this municipality.

    La restauración del Arroyo de los Quiñones (San Sebastián de los Reyes, Madrid plantea como problema resolver sus principales fuentes de degradación.

    Full Text Available Il s’agit d’une des premières expertises auprès des tribunaux de la Cour impériale conduite par Krafft-Ebing alors qu’il venait d’être nommé professeur de psychiatrie à Vienne. Il eut à mener cette expertise dans une affaire de mœurs à propos d’une jeune comtesse hongroise qui, selon lui, souffrait de gynandrie, ce qui l’aurait conduite à convoler en noces illégitimes avec une jeune fille en escroquant au passage son « beau-père ».

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available Drawing upon two public opinion surveys conducted in Geneva in 2015 and 2016, the paper explores how video surveillance was lived and perceived by the residents of the monitored Pâquis area, as well as by the population at large. This study shows that the delegation of control to systems and individuals that are both spatially and socially detached from the monitored areas also results in a kind of `mental distance' that characterizes the relation between the monitored individuals and the system: People quickly forget about the cameras and withdraw from any conscious attempt to imagine what might be going on behind their back. The system thus gradually loses its relevance in people's everyday life. This, in turn, limits the symbolic power of the cameras to enduringly revitalize, and thus to properly re-territorialize, the monitored areas.

    2007-01-15

    Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly-and has become a true planetary emergency. The Chinese expression for crisis consists of two characters. The first is a symbol for danger; the second is a symbol for opportunity. In order to face down the danger that is stalking us and move through it, we first have to recognize that we are facing a crisis. So why is it that our leaders seem not to hear such clarion warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore the warnings? Perhaps, but inconvenient truths do not go away just because they are not seen. Indeed, when they are responded to, their significance does not diminish; it grows. (author)

    Full Text Available Desde finales del siglo XX, gobiernos locales de diferentes ciudades de América Latina implementan políticas urbanas de corte neoliberal. El objetivo es re-configurar ciudades económicamente productivas. Para ello, se busca el mejoramiento del factor de localización de estas a través de la atracción de visitantes e inversionistas. Con ello, se da el paso de una lógica de gobernanza urbano gerencial a “la ciudad empresarial”. Una de las implicaciones más significativas es el carácter selectivo que toman los espacios públicos. Concretamente, se los convierte en nuevas centralidades orientadas, fundamentalmente, al consumo de sectores de altos ingresos. Esto deriva en una producción del espacio público, que profundiza la polarización socio-económica y la configuración de ciudades fragmentadas y desiguales. Sin embargo, la producción de un determinado espacio se realiza tanto desde las políticas urbanas, como desde los actores del lugar. En este sentido, el espacio público es uno de los lugares en los cuales se materializa la tensión entre estas dos escalas. Tensión que se deriva a partir de la disputa por quien instalará los parámetros de cómo y quién podrá habitar y consumir el espacio público. En esta línea, el presente trabajo analiza la producción de espacios públicos en dos casos de estudios latinoamericanos: la construcción del Boulevard Naciones Unidas, en la ciudad de Quito, y la renovación urbana del barrio La Boca, en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires.

    The University of Québec in Montréal has agreements with trade unions providing access to university resources. Researchers involved in this program worked in partnership with union women's and health and safety committees for more than twenty years. Not all studies succeeded in improving women's working conditions. One joint project involved observational studies of tasks done by health-care workers, complemented by interviews and questionnaires. We found that task assignments, movements, postures, and work-related musculoskeletal disorders varied by gender/sex and made recommendations for change. However, issues of pay equity, spending on health care, and contracting-out of "ancillary work" were salient. Researchers learned that in the absence of changes in power relationships in the workplace, women may be disadvantaged by denial as well as by exaggeration of female-male differences. Men may also be at risk when their gender is invisible. We suggest some feminist approaches to workplace solutions and some pathways for research. Résumé L'Université du Québec à Montréal a signé avec des centrales syndicales des ententes leur donnant un accès à des ressources universitaires. Des chercheures ont travaillé en partenariat avec des comités syndicaux de condition des femmes et de santé-sécurité au travail pendant plus de 25 ans, mais ce ne sont pas toutes les études qui ont abouti à des améliorations. Un projet concernait des observations du travail d'employé.e.s du secteur de la santé, dont les tâches, mouvements, et postures variaient selon le genre/sexe.

A l’époque, différents acteurs s’opposent, chacun prétendant avoir la légitimité de “dire la vérité” à propos de la traite des blan­ches en Allemagne. Le “champ de la connaissance”, composé d’auteurs issus des sciences humaines comme Max Kreutzberger, s’oppose au “champ de l’ex­périence”, composé de personnes qui travaillent dans des associations juives et qui essayent d’établir un lien entre traite, prostitution et combat moral. Cette po­lémique constitue un cas d’étude révélateur des tensions qui naissent lors de la construction d’un savoir social sur la prostitution dans l’entre-deux-guerres.Through a polemic which broke out in 1929 in the Jewish associative and social medium of the Weimar Republic, this article looks into the problematic of establishing expertise. At the time, various contending actors each claimed to have legitimacy, “to know the truth” about white slavery in Germany. The “field of savants”, composed of authors issuing from the human sciences - like Max Kreutzberger, were opposed by the “the experimental field”, composed of people working in Jewish associations that tried to establish a bond between slavery, prostitution and moral combat. This polemic is a revealing case study of the tensions which arose in the development of social knowledge on prostitution in the inter-war period.

    éterminants environnementaux jouent un rôle clé pour modeler la maîtrise de soi dans le processus d’apprentissage. Cet article rapporte une étude sur les influences de l’environnement de cyberapprentissage 2.0 sur la maîtrise de soi. L’étude a cerné les facteurs qui, dans un tel environnement, influencent la maîtrise de soi et déterminent les relations entre les facteurs et la maîtrise de soi. Un modèle théorique de catégorisation des facteurs de réussite pour l’apprentissage autogéré a été proposé pour ce type d’environnement. Un questionnaire a été conçu selon ce modèle et plus de deux cent cinquante élèves en téléapprentissage à Beijing et à Hong Kong y ont répondu. À l’aide d’une technique de modélisation par équation structurelle, les relations entre les facteurs environnementaux et l’autogestion ont été analysées. Les résultats statistiques ont démontré que plusieurs facteurs affectent l’autogestion dans l’environnement de cyberapprentissage 2.0. Ceux-ci comprennent la qualité du système, la qualité de l’information, la qualité du service et la satisfaction de l’usager.

(author) [French] Le memoire a pour objet l'examen, d'un point de vue commun, des types principaux d'instabilite de plasma dans les decharges toroidales, ainsi qui des effets macroscopiques causes par les oscillations non lineaires du plasma dues aux instabilites. Les auteurs examinent d'abord le probleme lineaire de la stabilite de la decharge symetrique par rapport a l'axe (on tient compte de la forme toroiedale en imposant des conditions limites aux jonctions des faces) en se fondant sur une equation cinetique qui tient compte des collisions du caractere fini du rayon de Larmor des ions, et ils donnent une classification des instabilites. Les resultats de la solution du probleme lineaire servent de base pour l'examen ulterieur des processus non lineaires dans la decharge. Lors de l'examen du probleme non lineaire, les auteurs accordent une importance particuliere au cas le plus simple de la decharge dans un champ magnetique longitudinal intense avec une pression du plasma sensiblement inferieure a la pression magnetique. Si l'on neglige la non-potentialite des oscillations, il ne reste que deux instabilites - l'instabilite de derive et l'instabilite a convection de courant. Les auteurs montrent que l'instabilite a convection de courant entraine la formation d'un grand nombre de cellules de convection, dans lesquelles la chaleur se transmet par convection. Dans le cas d'un champ magnetique tres intense, les cellules de convection se recouvrent l'une l'autre et les flux macroscopiques de chaleur et de particules peuvent exceder dans une grande mesure les flux classiques, determines par des collisions binaires. En cas d'augmentation de la pression du plasma, les cellules de convection ne se recouvrent plus et l'effet macroscopique de l'instabilite a convection de courant devient plus faible. Si la pression du plasma croit encore, les oscillations instables deviennent non

A global evaluation report about these researches is to be supplied in 2006 by the French government to the Parliament. A first synthesis of the knowledge gained after 14 years of research has led the national commission of the public debate (CNDP) to organize a national debate about the general options of management of high-level and long-lived radioactive wastes before the 2006 date line. The debate comprises 4 public hearings (September 2005: Bar-le-Duc, Saint-Dizier, Pont-du-Gard, Cherbourg), 12 round-tables (October and November 2005: Paris, Joinville, Caen, Nancy, Marseille), a synthesis meeting (December 2005, Dunkerque) and a closing meeting (January 2006, Lyon). This document is the synthesis of the round table debates which took place at Marseille.

    Full Text Available Planning, conducting, and reporting leading-edge research requires professionals who are capable of highly skilled reading. This study reports the development of an empirically informed computer-based learning environment designed to foster the acquisition of reading comprehension strategies that mediate expertise in the social sciences. Empirical data were gathered in a mixed-methods explanatory sequential design that examined the reading comprehension strategies used by an expert social scientist while reading a professional-level text. Process data were collected through a concurrent think-aloud protocol and coded according to reading comprehension processes. We combined both quantitative and qualitative analyses to identify, describe, and explain patterns in the expert’s use of reading strategies. Our findings indicate that highly-skilled reading is characterized by critiquing text information, relating information to prior knowledge, and evaluating one’s own understanding of text information. Findings are used to inform the design of worked-examples and a pedagogical agent embedded within the Highly-Skilled Reading Tutor. Le type de planification, de réalisation et l’analyse qui caractérise une recherche d’avant-garde nécessite des professionnels en mesure d’effectuer des lectures hautement spécialisées. La présente étude dresse un rapport sur l’élaboration d’un milieu d’apprentissage informatisé conçu pour favoriser l’acquisition de stratégies de compréhension en lecture permettant d’assurer la transmission des connaissances spécialisées en sciences sociales.

Parmi ces formes de sous-culture, l’article va identifier les règles et les sanctions, les valeurs, les comportements durables, la caractérisation des relations et des interactions, en concluant que ce qui est construit dans l'espace du jeu est un univers séparé, une «réalité extérieure» dans laquelle des nouvelles règles sont écrites et où les valeurs changent par rapport au «monde extérieur» . Il a également été possible de conclure que l'adhésion à l' «univers du jeu» - l'internalisation de ses normes, le partage de ses valeurs, le développement des relations en son sein - est un facteur de maintenance de la conduite du jeu, car cette adhésion permet d'envisager comme «normal» son propre comportement grâce à des réactions positives provenant des compagnons de jeu et à la neutralisation d’éventuelles réactions négatives provenant des «non joueurs».

    Full Text Available Spirulina presents major advantages in the fight against chronic malnutrition based on its micronutrient composition, its health potential and the fact that it can be grown locally. International solidarity associations, such as Antenna Technologies and Entrepreneurs du Monde whose goal is to reduce extreme poverty and public health problems in developing countries, have undertakenproduction and distribution programmes of spirulina, especially in West Africa. The quality of spirulina produced in these developing countries continues to increase to the extent that it can now be exported. Thus, associations such as Spirulidaire market a traditional, fair and supportive spirulina in France and Europe and thus promote local producers.The perception of spirulina continues to evolve with the multiplication of field initiatives and the accumulation of scientific data. New studies demonstrate that spirulina also presents clinically significant anti-viral and immuno-stimulating effects in people infected by HIV.Sur la base de sa composition en micronutriments, de son potentiel pour la santé et du fait qu’elle soit cultivable localement, la spiruline présente des avantages majeurs dans la lutte contre la malnutrition chronique.

How the Code is amended? The "decision" to conserve the name Acacia with a new type from Australia, one of the most heated and polarized debates over botanical nomenclature, casting doubt over the legitimacy of the procedure and botanical decision-making is taken as example. Despite a website www.acaciavote.com, for which by July 2011, the votes were: 7 659 opposing the re-typification of Acacia, including 101 votes from people in Australia, and only 110 accepting the re-typification, did not make any affect to influence to amend the Code? Only delegates present at the Nomenclature Section and the number of active institutional votes that they carry can decide the changes to the Code; from 878 distributed to registered herbaria only 396 of these were taken to Melbourne. Australia and the United States were the countries with the largest number of votes. There is little participation of Latin American Countries, in general of developing countries, how this can be increased and effective throughout herbaria institutional votes?

    Full Text Available En la literatura de gestión y de la Psicología del Trabajo y de las Organizaciones existe una sobreabundancia de testimonios referidos a la influencia positiva de los equipos de trabajo sobre variables psicosociales y sobre los resultados económicos de las empresas donde se implantan. Sin embargo, sospechamos que tal sobre representación de éxitos no siempre refleja la realidad de las empresas. Este trabajo pretende realizar un análisis de las dificultades que la implantación de equipos de trabajo conlleva en los procesos de reestructuración del poder y de la organización del trabajo. También se examinarán algunas de las resistencias de carácter individual que suelen aparecer al iniciar procesos de reestructuración organizacional en base a equipos de trabajo. Este artículo no pone en duda la potencialidad de los equipos de trabajo, lo que cuestiona es que puedan llegar a ser efectivos sin una adecuada dirección, estructura, formación y facilitación. Desarrollando una apreciación más crítica de los costes y beneficios de la implantación de sistemas de trabajo basados en equipos esperamos favorecer un uso más apropiado de los mismos.

    Full Text Available Les bouleversements intervenus ces dernières décennies dans la composition de l'ichtyofaune d'eau douce française incitent, d'une part, à faire un bilan de la situation présente (cf. l'Atlas des poissons d'eau douce de France et, d'autre part, à promouvoir une politique de gestion cohérente avec le principe de protection du patrimoine biologique naturel. Cette notion de patrimoine reste toutefois à définir. En effet, les changements actuels ne sont que les derniers d'une longue série, où l'homme est un acteur capital depuis plus longtemps qu'on ne le croit. De fait, beaucoup des espèces dites françaises n'ont probablement pas de valeur patrimoniale dans nombre de nos bassins fluviaux.

El enfoque se hace desde el ámbito académico con el Laboratorio de Vivienda y desde el escenario de la relación universidad-empresa según convenio de asociación con Prodesa S. A. La alerta se inicia con la preocupación por la condición de la vivienda de interés social (VIS en Bogotá: lotes estrechos, viviendas pequeñas con ubicación urbana de extrema periferia, para ir complejizando la mirada a través de preguntas como: ¿Qué facilidades urbanas tiene la ciudad en la que se construye la VIS? ¿Qué tipo de urbanizaciones o agrupaciones se están proponiendo? ¿Cuál es la espacialidad de la vivienda que se ofrece? Interesa explorar si es factible medir la calidad de la vivienda VIS, y si lo es, con qué indicadores y valoraciones se debe hacer. El artículo expone las razones de esta búsqueda, los instrumentos técnicos planteados para acercarse a las respuestas, y el análisis de los resultados y retos de la que hemos llamado “primera fase de observación”.

    Full Text Available Au Québec, en santé au travail, l’approche de santé publique a été privilégiée à l’approche médicale individuelle, parce qu’elle est conséquente aux objectifs de la loi, à savoir la prise en charge par le milieu de ses problèmes et la diminution, voire l’élimination des dangers. Quant aux activités médicales individuelles, elles ne sont réalisées que lorsqu’elles sont légitimes, c’est-à-dire lorsque leur pertinence et leur efficacité sur le plan de la prévention ont été démontrées. Quelques évaluations l’ont confirmé, l’approche par programme des services de santé publique québécois fonctionne en général très bien et elle est efficace. Mieux que l’examen médical de chaque sujet, elle permet de centrer les énergies sur les expositions professionnelles et les composantes de l’organisation du travail susceptibles de provoquer des problèmes. Malgré toutes ses qualités, le système de santé au travail québécois se heurte à de sérieuses résistances institutionnelles et politiques qui ont compromis son développement et mènent progressivement à son essoufflement.In Québec, in occupational health, the public health approach has been favoured over the individual medical approach because it is consistent with the objectives of the law, namely this community taking charge of its problems, and the reduction and even elimination of risk factors. Individual medical activities are limited to cases where the relevance and effectiveness of preventive benefits have been demonstrated. Some evaluative studies have shown that this Québec public health program approach works well in general, and is effective. Compared with the medical examination of each subject, it has a better potential for focusing energies on occupational exposures and on work organizational factors that could cause problems. Despite all its advantages, the Québec occupational health system is facing serious institutional and

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the distribution of population in Brazil, one of the starting points for understanding the formation of cities and enduring social inequality. Its goal is to describe and to reflect about the decisions of architectural planning, territory design, and urban planning, and to propose a possible course correction. Two scenarios served as its backdrop: the state of violence and misery to which poor people are subjected in Brazilian urban centers and how one faces the water issues in Brazil, especially in its Northeast Region. At its core, this paper questions the vector mode for planning growth in a territory and analyzes two points: the behavior of populations and the knowledge of the waters. It starts out from the statement that the Brazilian Northeast exports two products: man and water. It also provides a brief analysis about a project to divert part of the São Francisco River to fight the desertification process in the Brazilian semi-arid region and discusses a national alternative to face this problem.

    What will be the climate in 2050? From specialists, 2050 is the date of the first signs of the climatic change consequences. In France the daily life will not be very modified, but some activities which depend on the hydrology, will have to adapt. The vegetation modifications, will be little in some areas. Elsewhere, they would be radical: no more arctic ice field in summer, some island flooded by the sea. The authors show also the human activities which will be favored by the climatic change.

    Over the past six years the Brazilian Federal Police has undertaken major efforts in order to implement and to develop its own drug chemical profiling program. This paper aims to provide a broad perspective regarding the managerial strategies and some examples of subsequent technical issues involved in the implementation of such a project. Close collaboration with local drug enforcement and investigation teams, establishment of proper worldwide partnerships with well recognized institutions in the field of drug analysis and the attainment of suitable funding and human resources are shown to be key success factors. Some preliminary results concerning the chemical profile of cocaine seizures in Brazil during this process are presented. Copyright © 2014 Forensic Science Society. Published by Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

En effet, a l'heure ou la gravitation semble enfin sur le point de fusionner avec les trois autres forces de la nature. il est certain que la relativite d'Einstein doit etre bientot remplacer par une autre theorie... Reste quye tous les physiciens sont loin de s'accorder sur la marche a suivree. Gravitation quantique, relativite d'echelle, supersymetrie, les candidates ne manquent pas.

    Full Text Available A partir de 1990 la legislación colombiana ha tenido significativos avances para permitir que todas las personas puedan acceder a los servicios de telecomunicaciones, tal como corresponde en ejercicio del derecho fundamental del acceso a la información. Gracias al desarrollo de la tecnología, la limitación que generaba la necesidad de utilizar frecuencias radioeléctricas ya no es una razón válida desde el punto de vista constitucional para restringir el establecimiento de nuevos servicios y la difusión de información. Esta realidad técnica debe ser reconocida por el ordenamiento jurídico respecto de todos los servicios de telecomunicaciones. Dentro del actual marco constitucional no existe ningún fundamento para que los servicios que no utilicen frecuencias radioeléctricas sean objeto de reserva estatal. Este reconocimiento ya lo hizo el legislador al establecer que el servicio de telefonía pública básica conmutada local no sea objeto de concesión. En el mismo sentido, los medios masivos de comunicación, incluida la televisión, que no requieran el uso de frecuencias radioeléctricas y que puedan ser trasmitidos a través de redes de cable, gozan del derecho constitucional de establecerse libremente, aunque deben someterse a los reglamentos del servicio que establezca la autoridad competente. Las disposiciones legales que actualmente no permiten el ejercicio de tal derecho, son inconstitucionales. / Since 1990 Colombian telecommunication law has had significant advances allowing everybody access to telecommunication services in exercise of the fundamental right of information. Technology development permit that the limitation which generated the need of use frequencies, know days is not a valid reason -from a constitutional point of view- to restrict the operation of new telecommunication services and the information diffusion. This technical reality, have to be recognize in the legal order among all the telecommunication services. Colombian constitutional framework, does not has any rule that allow the restriction of telecom services which do not use frequencies under a "state reserve regime". Legal recognition in this sense, has been made by the legislator, when he established that the local telephony service does not required concession for its operation. In the same sense, massive media operators -including television operators- which do not use frequencies and which can be transmitted by wires, can be freely established observing only the specific service regulation dictated by the telecommunication authority. Legal dispositions that today do not allow the exercise of this constitutional right are illegal.

    Full Text Available Este artículo pretende ser una invitación a un viaje en el que no se den por hechas las seguridades compartidas acerca de la realidad de los niños y adolescentes de hoy, sino que se pongan en cuestión, buscando para ello otras explicaciones alternativas, que nos habiliten para abordar el estudio de las vidas de los niños, o las intervenciones con niños (sean ellos o nosotros quienes nos encontremos en dificultad con una mirada distinta. En primer lugar se analiza el proceso de construcción social del propio concepto de “infancia y adolescencia en dificultad”, a la luz de los cambios que se han producido, especialmente a lo largo del último siglo, en las ciencias sociales y su repercusión en la formación de una idea de infancia en el imaginario colectivo. En segundo término, se aborda la condición de ser niño o adolescente en la llamada “sociedad del riesgo”, caracterizada, entre otras cosas, por la incertidumbre y los deseos de alcanzar un cierto control sobre los peligros percibidos como potenciales. La percepción de los riesgos para la infancia en la sociedad tiene dos caras: por un lado los peligros a los que están expuestos y por otro aquellos que causan, esto es, lo que nos amenaza. Para conjurar estos riesgos se exige mayor control por parte de las instituciones que regulan la vida de los niños (la familia, la escuela o el sistema de protección. El resultado es una restricción de la autonomía de los niños, niñas y adolescentes, que contrasta con las expectativas de que, como “hijos de la modernidad”, sean capaces de elegir sus propios caminos de autorrealización.-------------------------------------------------------------------This article tries to be an invitation to a journey in which the shared safeties taken for granted on the reality of the children and today teenagers, are being put in question, looking for other alternative explanations, which enable us to approach the study of the lives of the children, or the interventions with children (be they or we who meet in difficulty with a different look. First it is analyzed the process of social construction of the proper concept of "childhood and adolescence in difficulty", in the light of the changes that have taken place, specially throughout last century, in the social sciences and its repercussion in the social images of childhood. In the second term, it is approached the condition to be child or teenager in so called "risk society", characterized, among other things, by the uncertainty and the desires to reach a certain control on the dangers perceived as potentials. The perception of the risks for the childhood in the society has two faces: on the one hand the dangers to those who are exposed and for other one those that they cause, which threatens us. To conspire these risks it is required major control on the part of the institutions that regulate the life of the children (the family, the school or the protection system. The result is a restriction of the autonomy of the children and teenagers, which confront with the expectations of whom, as " children of the modernity ", are capable of choosing their own ways of self-realization.

    Full Text Available Contrary to what indicates the famous – and questionable – formula "Bible des illetrés”, the medieval discourses on images went well beyond just highlighting its didactic function. In this article, we present a sample of this diversity, analyzing a number of medieval texts dealing with images, which we have divided into five broad categories (not mutually exclusive: on the contrary, sometimes complementary. The first and most numerous are the theoretical discourses on images involving theological questions. Then, still based on arguments of theological order, a second group corresponds to those texts that seek to intervene in the practice of images through normative propositions. As a result from the previous two types is the third group: the speeches dealing with the reception of images and the reactions they cause. A fourth group are the writings that mention the producers of images: both practical documents and those that express value judgments about their Works. And finally, there are texts that describe the images, both their iconographic content and their materiality.

    Full Text Available The fall of the Visigothic Kingdom of Toledo from the Muslim incursion in the year 711 has been generally explained by specialists as an inevitable consequence of a disintegration process in the Visigothic power structures. Historians have associated this situation to a confrontation – either direct or indirect – between Hispanic-Visigothic monarchy and aristocracy, being the standstill of the kingdom (caused by its administrative, military and judicial institutional incapacity also considered. In this paper, as opposed to the fatalistic perspective where the idea of an inevitable end was irrationally imposed, a different explanation is proposed based on the multiple power dynamics, the Kingdom’s defense mechanisms and the last Visigothic monarchs’ legislative activity. All these ideas will be framed into the context of the (unstable normality and the efficacy of the Visigothic institutional machinery.

La carence en acide alpha-linolénique (18 :3 ω3 altère la structure et la fonction des membranes, et entraîne de légers dysfonctionnements cérébraux, comme cela a été montré sur les modèles animaux puis chez les nourrissons humains. Les résultats récents ont montré que son déficit alimentaire induit des anomalies plus marquées dans certaines structures cérébrales que dans d’autres, le cortex frontal et l’hypophyse étant les plus touchés. Ces singularités sont accompagnées de perturbations comportementales qui touchent plus particulièrement certains tests (habituation, adaptation à une situation nouvelle. Les anomalies biochimiques et comportementales sont partiellement réversées par une supplémentation avec des phospholipides, notamment extraits d’oeuf enrichis en ω3 ou de cervelle de porc. Une étude effet-dose montre que les phospholipides d’origine animale sont plus efficaces que ceux d’origine végétale pour réverser les conséquences du déficit, dans la mesure, entre autres, où ils apportent les très longues chaînes pré-formées. La déficience en acide alpha-linolénique se traduit au niveau du cortex frontal de rat par des perturbations de la neurotransmission mono-aminergique. Mais ne sont touchées ni la densité ni la fonction des transporteurs de la dopamine. Chez l’animal carencé, la réversibilité dans la neurotransmission dopaminergique (dans le cortex préfrontal, entre autres n’est que partielle après arrêt du déficit alimentaire. La carence en acide alpha-linolénique diminue la perception du plaisir, en altérant légèrement l’efficacité des organes sensoriels et en affectant certaines structures cérébrales.

Cautivos del sistema de transporte masivo, operado hoy en su totalidad por empresas privadas; desprotegidos por un Estado debilitado y permeable al poder de lobby de los concesionarios, ven desdibujarse hasta casi desaparecer el concepto de servicio público, cuya esencia implica la garantía de universalidad de las prestaciones. Presentamos la medición de la accesibilidad departamental, relacionando oferta de transporte masivo con población residente y niveles de pobreza. El análisis de su distribución socioespacial explicaría las incidencias con que los costos de transporte gravitan sobre los estratos más desprotegidos, los que por sus características y localización, no conforman mercados rentables para la operatoria privadaThis article pretends to demostrate, specially about the case of the metropolitan public transport system, how the changes to the state structures, resulting from the new flexible ownership patterns, impact to the detriment of increasing groups of captive users. The mass transport system, now operated solely by private operators, without sufficient regulatory protection, shows the gradual disappearance of public service concept, since weakness state is more receptive to the lobbying power of the concessionaires. With that objective, we present the results of our accessibility departmental measurement, by comparing the amount of public transport service offer with the number of residents and poor levels. The analysis would explain a socio-spatial pattern of higher costs of public transport in areas where the most vulnerable population groups are located due to the lack of profitable markets to be served

    The E.C. directive 97/43/EURATOM (M.E.D.-directive) introduced the concept of Clinical Audit for the assessment of medical radiological practices (diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy). The European Commission started in June 2007 a special project to review in detail the status of implementation of Clinical audits in Member States and to prepare European Guidance on Clinical Audits for diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy. The purpose of this E.C. project is to provide clear and comprehensive information and guidance on the procedures and criteria for clinical audits in all radiological practices, in order to improve the implementation of Article 6.4 of the M.E.D.-directive. The guidance should be flexible and enable the member States to adopt the model of clinical audit with respect to their national legislation and administrative provisions. By definition, clinical audit is a systematic examination or review of medical radiological procedures. It seeks to improve the quality and the outcome of patient care through structured review whereby radiological practices, procedures and results are examined against agreed standards for good medical radiological procedures. Modifications of the practices are implemented where indicated and new standards applied if necessary. The general objectives of clinical audit should be: to improve the quality of patient care, to promote the effective use of resources, to enhance the provision and organization of clinical services, to further professional education and training. Clinical audits must be at the same time internal (set by the management of the department) and external (set by external auditors at the department). It must not be confused with other evaluation activities such inspections, accreditation or quality system certifications. Clinical audits should address structure, process and outcome such the unit mission, quality assurance, dosimetry and treatments follow-up. The recent guideline on clinical audit published by the European Commission wants to support the principles and implementation of clinical audit and provides a general framework for the development of national clinical audits that are viable.

The text gives priority to an integral view of the symbol, which, beyond moral analogies, is able to explain the whole history of salvation: Agnus Dei evokes how the salvific facts of the past become present in the Eucharist and extend triumphantly into the future.El artículo trata de los significados simbólicos del Agnus Dei en la Edad Media, sus usos, recepciones y evolución, desde la perspectiva de la historia religiosa y de la historia cultural.

Este fenómeno se deriva de la aplicación del principio de subsidiariedad que lleva asociado la existencia de diferentes sistemas de regulación de precios y el de libre movilidad de bienes. En este artículo examinamos las tendencias de precios y penetración de medicamentos paralelamente importados respecto al precio del producto en el país de destino (beneficios de una mayor competencia en 2002. En segundo lugar, establecemos una descomposición empírica de los efectos del comercio paralelo de medicamentos en los tres mercados principales de la Unión Europea en los diferentes agentes de la cadena del medicamento. Los resultados no siguieren pruebas de un efecto competitivo del comercio paralelo. Por otra parte, se observa que los principales beneficiarios son los propios importadores paralelos en la medida que el comercio paralelo genera ahorros muy limitados en la factura de los sistemas de salud, que difícilmente superan los perjuicios en la innovación farmacéutica.

Considering the complexity of these circumstances, the purpose of this article is (to analyse the contradictions and ambiguousness released by this classification at the legislative context and the conflicts that this heritage activation weaves between the state`s agents and mapuche`s people.

  5. La empresa troyana y la pregunta por el quién en el pensamiento de Hannah Arendt

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pinilla Cañadas, Scheherezade

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This article attempts to answer all those scholars who maintain that Hannah Arendt is a political thinker of Hellenic nostalgia. From such a perspective, it is easy to conclude not only that Arendt´s thought is irrelevant to contemporary concerns but that she is an elitist reactionary when it comes to assessing the prospects of representative democracies. It is to be considered here that this reading is wrong and one-sided, and that the major work upon which it is based, The Human Condition, needs to be studied in a nuanced way, as engaging in multiple complex dialogue with philosophic-political tradition. To this end, this paper begins by briefly explicating not at all her dependency upon Heidegger, but rather a “radical conversation” with him. This conversation, even when only partially explored, casts considerable light on Arendt´s entire philosophical project. Secondly, this paper supports the view that Homer offers an ideal vantage point from which to tackle what Miguel Abensour has called “a political conception of heroism.” More specifically, the thesis which is to be defended here is that Iliad, and particularly the catalogue of ships in Book 2, could be understood as the origin of the Arendtian account of plurality.Este artículo pretende dar respuesta a toda esa crítica que sostiene que Hannah Arendt es una pensadora política con nostalgia de la pólis. Desde esta perspectiva, no resulta muy difícil concluir, no sólo que el pensamiento de Arendt es irrelevante en relación con los problemas contemporáneos; sino que estamos ante una auténtica reaccionaria cuando se trata de analizar las grandes cuestiones de las democracias representativas. Aquí se entiende que esta lectura es errónea y parcial y también que la obra sobre la que dicha interpretación se articula, La condición humana, debe ser estudiada de un modo mucho más sutil; que pasaría por un diálogo múltiple y complejo con la tradición filosófico-política. A tal fin, se hace una breve exposición, no tanto de su dependencia con Heidegger, cuanto de su “conversación radical” con él. Esta conversación (si bien sólo se estudia parcialmente arroja mucha luz sobre el proyecto filosófico de Hannah Arendt en su conjunto. En segundo lugar, en este trabajo se postula que Homero ofrece una perspectiva inmejorable a la hora de analizar lo que Miguel Abensour ha denominado “una concepción política del heroísmo.” De manera más específica, la tesis que aquí se defiende es que la Ilíada, y particularmente el catálogo de las naves del Canto II, podrían ser interpretados como el origen del concepto arendtiano de pluralidad.

En fait, lʼauteur belge vouait une prédilection aux sujets relatifs à lʼAncien et au Nouveau Testament. Ceux-ci mettent en relief lʼintégralité de lʼexistence de lʼhomme, ce qui présente ipso facto un soubassement sans pareil pour lʼexploatation dramatique, à tel point les histoires de la Bible sont imprégnées de dynamisme, reposant sur lʼeschatologie du tragique et de lʼinévitable.

    The oxidative enzymes of plant tissues are often dormant or only slightly active during the resting state, becoming active on the injury of the tissue or on separation from the tissue. During food processing this results in an acceleration of the oxidation of the natural substrates and polymerization of the products, which discolour the tissue. Copper oxidases are the principal enzymes involved in catalysing these reactions. The activation of the enzyme also leads to its reaction inactivation. One of the causes of the phenomenon of reaction inactivation is the decrease in the effective concentration of the enzyme, probably by the removal or binding of its metal prosthetic group copper. By using copper- 64, in vitro, it was shown that, in a resting solution, cupric ion can complex and/or exchange with the copper of the enzyme and that, in oxidizing solutions, an additional amount of cupric ion can be complexed. Cu-o-quinone- type complexes have higher formation constants than Cu-p-quinone- type complexes. The amount of cupric ion complexed was decreased, if the ion was added in an oxidizing solution after the initiation of polymerization of the o-quinone type reaction products. The kinetics of the exchange and complexing processes for cupric ions with enzyme and reaction products are discussed mathematically.

Lors de la preparation des denrees alimentaires, ce phenomene a pour effet d'accelerer l'oxydation des substrats naturels et de polymeriser les produits, ce qui donne lieu a une decoloration du tissu. Les oxydases de cuivre sont les principaux enzymes qui interviennent comme catalyseurs dans ces reactions. L'activation de l'enzyme entraine en outre une inhibition de la reaction qu'il subit.

    In this paper, an improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) algorithm is proposed. Besides the individual best position and the global best position, a nominal average position of the swarm is introduced in IPSO. The performance of IPSO is compared to different PSO variants with five well-known benchmark functions. The experimental results show that the proposed IPSO algorithm improves the searching performance on the benchmark functions. And then, IPSO, as well as other PSO variants, is applied to optimal tuning of Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) gains for a typical PID control system of water turbine governor. The computer simulation results of an actual hydro power plant in China show that IPSO algorithm has stable convergence characteristic and good computational ability, and it is an effective and easily implemented method for optimal tuning of PID gains of water turbine governor.

  9. Ergonomic design of an overview display in a nuclear power plant control room. Integrated process status overview

    Bouwmeester, R.

    1996-03-01

    A major modification of the Borssele Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), scheduled in 1997, includes the installation of a new Integrated Process Status Overview (IPSO) display in the extensively modified control room. The IPSO display is to promote effective communications among all individuals present in the control room with a clear overview of the main process systems. The flexible LCD rear-projection technique is selected for the replacement of the existing IPSO display with engraved process symbols and hard-wired LEDs. The relation between the IPSO display and the CRT based Process Presentation System (PPS) is described after an elaborate introduction to the nuclear technology and the modification project. The followed IPSO design methodology includes interviews with all IPSO user groups to acquire their experience and comment on the current IPSO in order to enhance the functionality and the acceptance of the new IPSO graphics. The ergonomic design requirements for the new IPSO display concern both generic aspects of information presentation on human-machine interfaces, as well as specific issues related to the selected LCD rear-projection technique. Intermediate stages in the design of the IPSO graphics are outlined as well as the results of the concept evaluation by the user groups. For special interest the functionality of a three dimensional (3-D) display was explored. The design study concludes with a 'final' IPSO graphics design to be used for evaluations on the control room simulator. The presentation of one graphic was found to be most appropriate with adjustment of colour (grey) of components and systems which do not need to operate during the current process conditions or plant mode.

    The many and always increasing applications of Atomic Energy for peaceful uses set many safety and security problems relatively to the workers, populations, and locating of the sites in general. A comparative study of the radiation hazards to which the people working in the 'Commissariat a l'energie atomique' installations were exposed during 1957 and the results obtained concerning individual and collective safety and security were extremely satisfactory owing to a continuous control and supervision. 2. However a few contamination and irradiation incidents - exposed subsequently as well as the way they were dealt with - show the necessity of a circumstantial regulation inside of an atomic center to establish the responsibility of the service in charge of the control of the radiation and the responsibility of the services using radioactive products with regard to contamination by radioactive materials. 3. Abstract of the different practical safety and security regulations concerning holding, manipulation, transport and stocking of radioactive materials. Pursuant to the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiologic Protection, the radioelements are classified according to the danger that can occur from them in comparison with the Pu with regard to: - radioactive noxiousness; specific activity per unit of mass; contamination hazards. 4. The service in charge of radiation protection plays the important part of a technical adviser for the construction of specialized laboratories and sees to the keeping of protection regulations. 5. Data essential to radiation protection are given to the people using radioactive materials; particularly: - a table of the radioisotopes and the hazards occurring from them; - radiation hazards regarding {gamma} ray emitted by irradiated Pu; - radiation hazards regarding {gamma} ray emitted by irradiated Th. 6. As the hazards occasioned by irradiated uranium have already been studied, the case of a low and total irradiation will only be considered with regard to recuperation of uranium after simple machining.

L'utilisation croissante de l'energie nucleaire sous toutes ses formes a des fins pacifiques pose des problemes de securite vis-a-vis des travailleurs, des populations et des sites en general. Une etude comparee des risques d'irradiation auxquels le personnel du Commissariat a l'Energie atomique (CEA) a ete expose au cours de l'annee 1957 et des resultats du controle des radiations par les moyens de detection collectifs ou individuels montre que les installations du CEA ont une influence negligeable sur la sante, en raison de la surveillance exercee. 2. Cependant, quelques incidents de contamination et d'irradiation - sommairement indiques ainsi que la maniere dont ils ont ete regles - rendent necessaire l'elaboration d'une reglementation precise definissant les responsabilites respectives, au sein d'un etablissement nucleaire, des services utilisateurs et du Service charge de la Protection contre les Radiations, en matiere de prevention de la contamination. 3. Un ensemble coherent de regles pratiques de prevention et de protection relatives a la detention, la manipulation, le transport et le stockage de sources radioactives scellees ou non scellees, est presente. A cette fin, a partir des recommandations de la Commission Internationale de Protection Radiologique et compte tenu: - de leur nocivite radioactive; de leur activite specifique par unite de masse et du risque de contamination; les radioelements ont ete classes suivant le danger qu'ils presentent par rapport au plutonium. 4. Le Service charge de la Protection contre les Radiations intervient comme conseiller des la conception des laboratoires specialises et veille ensuite a ce que les prescriptions reglementaires de securite soient observees. 5.

    Full Text Available Estudios previos han identificado dos subgrupos de víctimas de violencia escolar: víctimas sumisas y víctimas agresivas. Las víctimas sumisas se caracterizan por su retraimiento ante la situación de violencia, mientras que las víctimas agresivas presentan un comportamiento hostil combinado con la situación de victimización. El presente estudio se centra en el segundo subgrupo y tiene como objetivo analizar posibles factores influyentes en el proceso que conduce del estado de victimización a la implicación en conductas agresivas en la escuela. La asunción de partida se fundamenta en la teoría de Emler que sostiene que el sentimiento de indefensión producido por la situación de victimización, junto con la decepción en las figuras adultas de autoridad ante su fracaso en la protección esperada, generan en el adolescente la necesidad de buscar una reputación antisocial y no conformista que le permita defenderse de los ataques venideros. Para poner a prueba estas relaciones, se ha utilizado una muestra compuesta por 1.319 adolescentes de entre 12 y 16 años. Los análisis estadísticos mediante un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales muestran resultados en la línea de la argumentación de Emler. En la discusión se comentan las implicaciones prácticas de estos resultados

El artículo es producto de una investigación sobre las condiciones de implementación de la política educativa colombiana Programa Nacional de Bilingüismo. Para el estudio se empleó una encuesta que fue respondida por 70 administradores escolares de 46 instituciones educativas de la ciudad. Los resultados mostraron que el perfil típico del administrador escolar corresponde a mujeres entre los 50y 60 años que tuvieron contacto con el idioma inglés durante sus estudios de básica secundaria, tienen título de Especialización como máximo nivel de formación alcanzado y cuentan con experiencia profesional superior a 11 años. Se hallaron diferencias entre los sectores público y privado: en el primero los directivos tienen un nivel más alto de formación académica y mejores salarios. Los resultados sugieren que se necesita mayor apoyo a la formación de los directivos del sector privado y un mejor reconocimiento económico a la labor desempeñada por los directivos docentes en ambos sectores.

    Full Text Available Many have invoked the nihilism that is endemic of the age we call the anthropocene. Bernard Stiegler has articulated this sentiment by highlighting how anthropocene films are typically nihi listic, for example, Von Trier’s Melancholia. But if the age is characterized by a cultural pessi mism about the future of human kind, or again about its posthuman supersession, there is also a complementary symptom that corresponds to a strange optimism before the impasses of our age. This optimism, we find it represented in another anthropocene film: Nolan’s Interstellar. This too is a film where the protagonists are faced with a world lacking a future, a world dying under the stresses caused by the human’s exploitation of nature. Here, instead of the mantra ‘Enjoy it while it lasts’, an opposing moral is repeated: ‘Don’t go gentle into that good night, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.’ In the film, Thomas’ poem is a tribute to prometheanism; the death of the earth will not mean the end of human life, it declares, the human will surpass all the limits of its ecosystem, the constraints of space time itself, and become pure hyperdimensional intelligence. The film echoes the superstitious optimism in the promise of technology we now find at the heart of contemporary movements such as accelerationism. This paper assesses the validity of this intrumentalization of optimism, drawing from Leibniz’s concept of compossibility and the cosmological anthropic principle (observer bias.

    The attitude of 19th century (and even of 20th century) scholars toward medieval and, particularly, Anglo-Saxon medicine has been of severe criticism. According to them it was filled with superstition and stupidities. However, in these last fifty years research has proved that, compared with the Continent, Anglo-Saxon England was not a backwater. At the end of the ninth century, medical compendia in Old English began to appear, similar in structure and contents to the Latin dynamidia and to the Latin herbals. These medical treatises were written in the vernacular of the Anglo-Saxons, not in Latin, the western European language for all significant and valuable works on medicine. Bladder, kidney and urinating problems are mentioned throughout the Old English medical treatises together with their cures, that is remedies from herbs and animals. These texts contain no theoretical reflections, only very concise descriptions of symptoms (pain in the bladder, in the kidneys, difficulty in urinating etc.), while prognosis is limited to affirmations such as "he will heal very quickly," "soon there will be no pain," "it will soon be healed," etc. Remedies are made basically out of a body of medicinal plants and materials which can be traced to Greek and Roman medicine. The remedies from plants reflect a wide rational and practical knowledge of medicinal herbs. As a matter of fact, not only there is no amuletic use of plants, but most of the herbs that appear in these recipes have diuretic or analgesic properties and have been in use for centuries.

    El título Memorias del presente y del futuro corresponde precisamente a esta coyuntura, en la que convergen relatos de vida abortados, así como procesos históricos de amplio alcance, tácticas y estrategias de resistencia, macro- y micropolíticas. Al formular la convocatoria para el número teníamos en mente que la memoria, como acto colectivo de rememoración, articula el pasado, el presente y el futuro, y queríamos ir más allá de la noción habitual de memoria como anclada en el pasado, focalizada en una serie de hechos que se sitúan en un tiempo y un espacio que resultan significativos para alguien desde el presente. Si bien el pasado parece un país extraño al que queremos retornar, como lo ha dicho el escritor David Lowenthal (1998, igualmente, asumimos que la memoria es un ámbito de lo cotidiano. En ella se conecta temporal- y biográficamente la dimensión de la experiencia, aquello que le ha sucedido a alguien y de lo que es posible dar cuenta, a través de la narración o de los silencios, con la dimensión de la expectativa, con lo que aún no es, pero se presenta como guía de acción. Así, la memoria, si bien recoge la experiencia acumulada de dolor y esperanza, también condensa horizontes, como bien lo ha mostrado el filósofo de la historia Reinhard Koselleck (1993

The analysis of this rate allows to portrait a more complete profile of those individuals who are more likely to either become unemployed or stay in such a situation. We find significant differences in the analysis of the unemployment rate and the incidence rate in Colombia, which suggests the importance of addressing certain elements underlying unemployment duration when appraising unemployment typology and policies aimed to overcome it.

    Full Text Available In this paper I would like to highlight the signifi cant architectural regularity which characterizes the pre-Roman archeological remains registered in Carthage. Despite having been repeatedly interpreted from a preconceived logical and spatial point of view, these remains allow us to set out that the Tyrian foundation was established in the Carthaginian peninsula according to a model that is referred to as per strigas in archaeological literature because it was documented better at the Archaic Greek colonies in Sicily. To defend this idea, I will indicate which architectonic remains make up its material basic, paying special attention to the remains found underneath the crossroads of the decumanus maximus and the cardo x-east, and I will try to summarize the state of the current issue on the urban shape of Phoenician Carthage. I will then go over several documentated examples of orthogonal land division in urban spaces from the Ancient Near East. This information will provide insight on the possible technical and practical context of Phoenician societies in the 9th and 8th centuries BC and, more specifically, the socio-political context of the Carthaginian founders. Finally, in light of these elements, I will put forward a proposal of a reconstruction of the urban layout of Phoenician Carthage as a whole.En este artículo quiero llamar la atención sobre la significativa regularidad arquitectónica que caracteriza los restos arqueológicos prerromanos registrados en Cartago. Pese a haber sido repetidas veces interpretados desde un prejuicio lógico-espacial, estos datos permiten proponer que la fundación tiria se implantó en la península cartaginesa según un modelo que, estando mejor documentado en las colonias arcaicas griegas de Sicilia, ha sido denominado per strigas por la historiografía arqueológica. Para defender esta tesis señalaré qué restos arquitectónicos le sirven de base material, con especial atención a los hallados bajo el cruce entre el decumano máximo y el cardo x este, e intentaré sintetizar el estado de la cuestión actual sobre la forma urbana de la Cartago fenicia. A continuación repasaré algunos ejemplos de segmentación ortogonal de espacios urbanos documentados en el Próximo Oriente antiguo. Ello nos ayudará a suponer cuál habría sido el contexto técnico y práctico en que vivieron las sociedades fenicias de los siglos IX-VIII a.C. y, más concretamente, el contexto sociopolítico de los fundadores de Cartago. Por último y a la luz de estos elementos, presentaré una propuesta de reconstrucción de la forma urbana de la Cartago fenicia.

    2005-12-01

    Full Text Available Two procedures of criminal investigation in al-Andalus are presented in this paper. First, the tadmiya, an accusation made by a seriously injured person against his or her assailant; secondly, the qasāma, an oath pronounced 50 times by the male relatives of a victim of murder accusing somebody of the crime. These two procedures are examined through several cases, historically documented, of their actual practice in al-Andalus. Jurists' opinions were not always unanimous on these issues, owing to differences in school affiliations (Mālikites against Shāfi'ites and to divergences inside the same school. Personal attitudes and social and economic relationships also played an important role in criminal investigations, as attested in the cases under study.

    En este artículo se estudian dos aspectos de la investigación sobre delitos de sangre en al-Andalus. En primer lugar, la tadmiya, inculpación hecha por una persona gravemente herida contra su atacante. En segundo lugar, la qasāma, el juramento cincuentenario que podían hacer los parientes masculinos de la víctima de un crimen contra alguien a quien acusaban de haberlo cometido. Estos dos procedimientos se examinan a través de varios casos, documentados históricamente, en que se pusieron en práctica. Las opiniones de los juristas no siempre fueron unánimes a este respecto, bien por diferencias entre las escuelas legales (mālikíes y šāfi'íes, bien por divergencias dentro de la propia escuela mālikí. Tal como puede observarse en los casos estudiados, las actitudes personales, así como las relaciones sociales y económicas, representaron un papel importante en las investigaciones sobre los delitos de sangre.

    Full Text Available Las políticas educativas desarrolladas en el contexto del auge del neoliberalismo económico asumen una serie de efectos beneficiosos para el crecimiento económico y la igualdad de oportunidades educativas. Su hegemonía a lo largo de los últimos años, con un especial protagonismo del Banco Mundial, se ha traducido en su extensión en diversas partes del globo, y especialmente en los países en vías de desarrollo. Dichas políticas se presentan como respuesta a los retos de la globalización y como estrategia eficaz para asegurar beneficios colectivos del desarrollo educativo, especialmente para aquellos grupos socialmente más desfavorecidos. El artículo identifica las principales tesis de la política educativa neoliberal en el terreno de las relaciones entre educación y empleo, entre expansión educativa y gasto público y en las estrategias educativas de lucha contra la pobreza. Para cada una de ellas cuestiona los efectos esperados de las propuestas políticas hegemónicas y ofrece evidencias de resultados que muestran que en ningún caso los beneficiarios son los colectivos más desfavorecidos.In the context of economic neoliberalism, educational policies assume positive effects for both economic growth and equality of educational opportunities. In recent years, this thinking has been hegemonic: it has been extended around the world and especially in developing countries (with a special role of the World Bank. Those policies are presented as a response to the challenges of globalisation and as the correct strategy to ensure collective benefits of educational development, especially for socially disadvantaged groups. This paper identifies the main theses of neoliberal educational policy. The relationship of education and labor market, the connection between educational expansion and public expenditure and educational strategies to combat poverty are explored as some of the fields where neoliberal educational policies are produced. Expected effects of educational policy measures are questioned for each of these fields. At the same time, the text provides evidence of results that show that the most disadvantaged groups are not those that can really obtain the main benefits of mainstream educational policies.

El estereotipo, componente esencial de la sátira ocampiana, juega con la ambigüedad, tanto a nivel de los personajes como para el alcance pragmático de los relatos. Potencialmente peligroso y despreciable, el estereotipo es fuente de cohesión social: cuando, privados de conocimientos empíricos, nos remitimos a fuentes de segunda mano y asimilamos imágenes de manera indiscriminada porque “así lo quiere la tradición”, apelamos al estereotipo, que nos conforta en la sensación de pertenecer a un cuerpo social solidario... y nos aleja del cuerpo.

    Full Text Available La probabilidad de que una persona mayor tenga que declarar como testigo o víctima de un atraco o un suceso similar aumenta en función de la esperanza de vida de la población. Por ello, resulta relevante conocer si las personas mayores producen testimonios menos exactos que los jóvenes, así como determinar cuáles son las circunstancias en las que pueden ser más proclives a cometer errores. En este estudio utilizamos una prueba de reconocimiento para analizar la memoria para las acciones de un atraco en adultos jóvenes y mayores. Aunque no hubo diferencias en los aciertos, las personas mayores cometieron una proporción superior de falsas alarmas y resultaron menos exactas que los jóvenes en el reconocimiento de las acciones del suceso. Además, las personas mayores tuvieron más dificultades que los jóvenes a la hora determinar el autor de las acciones correctamente reconocidas como pertenecientes al atraco. Por lo tanto, los déficits de las personas mayores en el control del origen de la información que recuerdan podrían ayudar a explicar la menor exactitud de su memoria para el suceso, un hallazgo especialmente relevante al tomar declaración a una persona de edad avanzada.

    The STIC 2001 and STIC 2002 projects intend to allow the implementation and the assessment of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy in France. IMRT is an innovative technique in which the high-dose radiation volume conforms to an accurately defined target volume with less morbidity to the surrounding normal tissues. The main medical objectives of the projects are (1) to improve the therapeutic index while decreasing acute toxicity and late sequelae (mainly xerostomia and acute mucite for head and neck tumors), which allows an increase in the radiation dose to the tumor and then a better tumor control; (2) to propose a salvage treatment to patients who locally recurred in previously irradiated sites; (3) to determine the optimal treatment guidelines for a safe use of the technique in clinical routine. Our projects also aim at comparing IMRT and 3D conformal treatments on the one hand (STIC 2001), and IMRT and conventional treatments on the other hand (STIC 2002), with regard to costs. As a matter of fact, the use of IMRT is presently limited in France because its implementation requires high investment and personnel costs. The seventeen French Regional Cancer Centres involved in the two projects intend to study the additional cost of the use IMRT in comparison with the use of standard techniques, which appears to be a step for a wide use of this technique in France. Each of the studies is two-year prospective, and includes patients with head and neck tumors treated with a curative intend (post operative or exclusive treatments for STIC 2002 and STIC 2002), and patients with a prostate cancer (STIC 2001).

Among them, the most important ones are the followings: - The past upgrades of the operating reactors against severe accidents has to be reassessed; - The requirements on the plant to sustain external hazards (earthquakes, flooding,...) has to be reviewed and improved in some cases; - Plants have to be tested against unrealistic situations to verify that no cliff edge effect can be expected; - The competence and the independence of the Safety Bodies have to be verified. The situation in the Fukushima reactors is not yet completely stabilized and it will take years before a return to normal life in the vicinity can take place; nevertheless, considering the size of the disaster, due to the exceptional magnitude of the earthquake and the height of the tsunami, the consequences of the nuclear part of the event are rather low: no casualty and limited risks of cancer for people in the future.

    Full Text Available El artículo se pregunta por tres aspectos relacionados con las políticas de la ignorancia y los silenciamientos que operan en las retóricas y agendas celebracionistas del Bicentenario de la Independencia en Colombia. El primer aspecto subraya que la colonialidad no terminó en el siglo XIX, sino que se mantiene fuertemente hasta hoy. El segundo, que se hace indispensable una deselitización de las genealogías de la colombianidad, incluyendo lo que aparece como Independencia. Finalmente se comprende cómo este tipo de eventos responden más a las preocupaciones e historicidad de quienes celebran, que a aquello supuestamente celebrado.

To identify factors associated to the probability of being the aggressor or the victim in cases of intimate partner physical violence. Materials and methods. A secondary data analysis was performed to an epidemiological survey done in seven cities in Peru (Lima, Arequipa, Huamanga, Trujillo, Cuzco, Callao and Maynas. 6399 men and women participated, of whom 3909 participants declared living together with an intimate partner at the time of the interview. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression models were used to identify associated factors to the roles of victim or aggressor. Results. The likelihood of being aggressor or victim in cases of intimate partner physical violence was independent of sex (p<0,01 and the couple´s time living together. Factors associated to a higher probability of both roles included a history of exposure to physical violence during childhood, having a favorable attitude towards violence, heavy alcohol drinking, and being younger than 45 years, as well as having a monthly family income of less than 750 USD or an educational attainment of less than complete tertiary school. Geographically, Cusco was the city where it was most likely to find an aggressor or a victim of intimate partner physical violence. Most of these associations obtained p-values of less than 0.001. Conclusions. In cases of intimate partner physical violence, the pattern of predictors is similar in both roles, i.e., aggressor and victim. Sex and the couple´s span of time living together did not predict any of both roles.

    Highlights: • Online sub-optimal energy management using IPSO. • A second-order HEV model with 5 major segments was built. • IPSO with equivalent-fuel fitness function using 5 particles. • Engine, rule-based control, PSO, IPSO and ECMS are compared. • Max. 31+% fuel economy and 56+% energy consumption improved. - Abstract: This study developed an online suboptimal energy management system by using improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) for engine/motor hybrid electric vehicles. The vehicle was modeled on the basis of second-order dynamics, and featured five major segments: a battery, a spark ignition engine, a lithium battery, transmission and vehicle dynamics, and a driver model. To manage the power distribution of dual power sources, the IPSO was equipped with three inputs (rotational speed, battery state-of-charge, and demanded torque) and one output (power split ratio). Five steps were developed for IPSO: (1) initialization; (2) determination of the fitness function; (3) selection and memorization; (4) modification of position and velocity; and (5) a stopping rule. Equivalent fuel consumption by the engine and motor was used as the fitness function with five particles, and the IPSO-based vehicle control unit was completed and integrated with the vehicle simulator. To quantify the energy improvement of IPSO, a four-mode rule-based control (system ready, motor only, engine only, and hybrid modes) was designed according to the engine efficiency and rotational speed. A three-loop Equivalent Consumption Minimization Strategy (ECMS) was coded as the best case. The simulation results revealed that IPSO searches the optimal solution more efficiently than conventional PSO does. In two standard driving cycles, ECE and FTP, the improvements in the equivalent fuel consumption and energy consumption compared to baseline were (24.25%, 45.27%) and (31.85%, 56.41%), respectively, for the IPSO.

    Full Text Available Accurate forecast of the sales growth rate plays a decisive role in determining the amount of advertising investment. In this study, we present a preclassification and later regression based method optimized by improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO for sales growth rate forecasting. We use support vector machine (SVM as a classification model. The nonlinear relationship in sales growth rate forecasting is efficiently represented by SVM, while IPSO is optimizing the training parameters of SVM. IPSO addresses issues of traditional PSO, such as relapsing into local optimum, slow convergence speed, and low convergence precision in the later evolution. We performed two experiments; firstly, three classic benchmark functions are used to verify the validity of the IPSO algorithm against PSO. Having shown IPSO outperform PSO in convergence speed, precision, and escaping local optima, in our second experiment, we apply IPSO to the proposed model. The sales growth rate forecasting cases are used to testify the forecasting performance of proposed model. According to the requirements and industry knowledge, the sample data was first classified to obtain types of the test samples. Next, the values of the test samples were forecast using the SVM regression algorithm. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed model has good forecasting performance.

    Gauge fixing is defined as an operation that enables to express the integral on an orbit space as integral on the corresponding principal fiber bundle. When the fiber is non compact, this operation involves a cohomology class with compact support (or rapid decay). Slavnov symmetry is the algebraic expression of the ambiguity of this construction.

La muestra estuvo compuesta por 165 voluntarios mayores de 65 años que, además de las versiones españolas de las escalas de generatividad, completaron instrumentos para evaluar satisfacción con la vida y orientación al futuro. Los resultados indicaron que la fiabilidad de las versiones españolas de las escalas de generatividad fue aceptable y similar a las originales en inglés. Mientras el interés generativo se relacionó con la satisfacción con la vida, los comportamientos generativos no lo hicieron. Sin embargo, ambas escalas sí se relacionaron con la orientación al futuro, aunque esta relación no se confirmó en un análisis multivariable. Los resultados resaltan la importancia de la generatividad en la vejez y de distinguir entre interés y acción generativa, ya que sus beneficios podrían ser muy diferentes.

    External radiotherapy is one of the modalities use o cure localized prostate carcinoma. Most of localized prostate carcinomas, specially those of the intermediate prognostic group, may benefit from escalated dose above 70 Gy at least as regard biochemical and clinical relapse free survival. 3D-CRT allows a reduction of the dose received by organs at risk and an increase of prostate dose over 70 Gy. It is on the way to become a standard. Intensity modulated radiation therapy increases dose homogeneity and reduces rectal dose. These methods necessitate rigorous procedures in reproducibility, delineation of volumes, dosimetry, daily treatment. They need also technological and human means. It is clear that localized prostate cancer is a good example for evaluation of these new radiotherapy modalities. (author)

En este proceso de emigración se produce en los 70 y los 80 un fenómeno de emigración forzada o exilio por razones políticas derivado de procesos autoritarios y una posterior dictadura militar(1973-1984. El estudio de la atención que el problema ha suscitado a través de la bibliografía existente sobre ese período refleja cómo el exilio es un tema poco tratado frente a otras consecuencias de tales procesos políticos. La relevancia relativa evidencia y refleja un proceso de olvido protagonizado por múltiples actores que trae como consecuencia que el exilio esté reservado a la memoria individual no existiendo ni en la memoria social ni en la memoria histórica.ABSTRACT: Uruguay has constructed its identity as a country of immigrants, but from the second half of the past century, a strong process of emigration has been generated, and today reaches worrisome levels, even if not considered an important phenomenon until the last years. This process of emigration, which takes place in the ‘70s and the ‘80s, produced a phenomenon of forced emigration or exile for political reasons derived from authoritarian processes and a later military dictatorship (1973-1984.

The relative relevance reflects a process of forgetfulness carried out by multiple actors which bring as consequence that exile is reserved to the individual memory, not existing neither in the social memory nor in the historical memory.

  6. Who is violent?: factors associated with aggressive behaviors in Latin America and Spain ¿Quién es violento?: factores asociados con los comportamientos agresivos en América Latina y España

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this paper was to evaluate the strength of the association between: 1 ag gres sive behaviors and 2 attitudes and self-efficacy for alternatives to violence, in different cities of the Region of the Americas and Spain. Results were based on a cross-sectional household survey of a sample of the population aged 18 to 70 years. The survey was conducted in eight metropolitan areas of Latin America and Spain: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Salvador, Bahia, Brazil; Santiago, Chile; Cali, Colombia; San José, Costa Rica; San Salvador, El Salvador; Caracas, Venezuela; and Madrid, Spain. Each sample of approximately 1 200 respondents per city was stratified by clusters and was proportional in terms of socioeconomic position and population density. In all cities and for all targets of aggression studied, people who reported using aggression were less likely to feel confident that they could solve conflicts without violence, and they were more likely to hold attitudes supporting violence. Young persons were also more likely to commit aggression against all the targets. In addition, aggression toward nonfamily members was found most frequently among young men who reported binge drinking, who either carried a firearm or would have liked to carry one, or who perceived the police as inefficient. Additional studies need to be done in each country to describe more specific attitudes as so ciated with aggression within each subculture. Future prevention programs should focus on modifying attitudes that support violence, increasing self-efficacy in solving problems without using violence, supporting the development of a police system that people can trust, regulating firearms and access to alcohol, and raising people’s education levels.El propósito principal de este trabajo es evaluar la fuerza de la asociación entre: 1 las conductas agresivas y 2 las actitudes y autoeficacia en torno a alternativas a la violencia en diferentes ciudades de la Región de las Américas y España. Los resultados se basaron en una encuesta domiciliaria transversal de una muestra de la población entre los 18 y 70 años de edad. La encuesta se efectuó en ocho áreas metropolitanas de América Latina y España: Río de Janeiro, Brasil; Salvador, Bahía, Brasil; Santiago, Chile; Cali, Colombia; San José, Costa Rica; San Salvador, El Salvador; Caracas, Venezuela y Madrid, España. Cada muestra, que se compuso de alrededor de 1 200 encuestados por ciudad, se estratificó por conglomerados y fue proporcionada en cuanto a posición socioeconómica y densidad poblacional. En todas las ciudades y de todas las personas estudiadas que fueron blancos de agresión, las que notificaron haber sido agresivas fueron menos propensas a sentirse capaces de resolver conflictos sin recurrir a conductas agresivas, y más propensas a adoptar actitudes a favor del uso de la violencia. Las personas jóvenes también se inclinaron más a conducirse de manera agresiva contra todo tipo de persona que fue blanco de agresión. Por añadidura, la agresión hacia personas ajenas a la familia fue más frecuente entre hombres jóvenes que notificaron tener episodios de consumo excesivo de alcohol, que llevaban un arma de fuego o tenían el deseo de llevarla, o que sentían que la policía era ineficiente. Hacen falta estudios adicionales en cada país para describir actitudes más específicas en relación con la agresión en cada subcultura. Los futuros programas de prevención deberán concentrarse en modificar las actitudes que favorecen la violencia, aumentar la autoeficacia para resolver problemas sin recurrir a actos violentos, apoyar el desarrollo de un sistema policiaco que despierte la confianza del público, regular la compra de armas de fuego y el acceso a bebidas alcohólicas y mejorar el nivel educativo de la población.

En este trabajo se pretende presentar una primera aproximación en España. Métodos: Análisis de la prensa, publicaciones de la industria y entrevistas con personas clave. Se identifican los actores pro tabaco activos en España, que se han podido clasificar según su naturaleza, la esfera en que se mueven y su ámbito territorial preferente. Resultados: Se identifican las empresas tabaqueras, entre las que destacan Altadis y Philip Morris por su dominio del mercado, las organizaciones del comercio minorista (estanqueros, las organizaciones «pantalla» creadas por la industria (Club de Fumadores por la Tolerancia, las de cultivadores y las empresas de transformación. La distribución está dominada por Logista, filial de Altadis. Hay que tener en cuenta también las empresas de vending y de productos complementarios (mecheros, fósforos y papel. Se identifican los vínculos de estos actores con la Administración pública, donde destaca el papel que desempeña el Comisionado para el Mercado de Tabacos, así como los Ministerios de Agricultura, Hacienda y Economía. Se identifican también las relaciones con la patronal, algunos partidos políticos y sindicatos, así como con otros sectores empresariales con gran influencia social, como los medios de comunicación y la publicidad. Conclusiones: El mapa de los actores pro tabaco en España es complejo y supera los límites de la estricta industria tabaquera. La comprensión de este entramado es fundamental para poder plantear políticas integrales de prevención.Objectives: For a comprehensive approach to policies on smoking, the map of actors related to tobacco and their political ties needs to be identified. The present article constitutes the first attempt at this task in Spain. Methodology: Analysis of the press, industry publications, and interviews with key people. Active actors favoring smoking in Spain were identified and classified according to their characteristics, the sphere in which they act, and their preferred territorial arena. Results: We identified tobacco companies (Altadis and Philip Morris dominate the market, tobacco trade organizations (tobacconists, front-line organizations created by the tobacco industry (The Smokers for Tolerance Club, organizations of tobacco growers, and processing companies. Distribution to retailers is dominated by Logista, owned by Altadis. Other sectors to take into account are vending companies and those manufacturing related products (cigarette paper, matches or lighters. The contacts of these actors with the public administration are reviewed, notable among which are the role of the Commissioner for the Tobacco Market, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of the Economy. Ties were also found with employers' organizations, some political parties, and unions, as well as with other sectors with social influence such as the media and advertising sectors. Conclusions: The map of actors favoring smoking in Spain is complex and goes beyond the confines of the tobacco industry. Understanding this web is crucial to promoting comprehensive prevention policies.

    Full Text Available El propósito de este estudio es ofrecer una mirada innovadora al problema persistente de la espera, examinando las percepciones de los consumidores, con el fin de identificar cuáles pueden ser sus causas. La espera es un fenómeno común asociado a la provisión de bienes y servicios, que tiene unas consecuencias negativas tanto para las empresas como para los consumidores. De manera general, se ha pensado que las empresas son las culpables de la espera. Para ello, se utiliza una metodología cualitativa y los datos se han recogido a través de 19 entrevistas en profundidad y 7 diarios personales. Los resultados del estudio han demostrado que las empresas no son las únicas culpables de la espera, sino que en muchas ocasiones son los propios consumidores sus causantes, porque, por ejemplo, no están preparados para recibir el servicio o llegan todos al mismo momento. Además, se ha encontrado que cuando la espera es culpa de la empresa, esta puede deberse, por una parte, a una mala gestión (porque hay una falta de personal o porque la reducción del tiempo de espera no es la prioridad para la organización o, por otra, a los trabajadores de la empresa (porque, por ejemplo, no están bien preparados o no están por el trabajo. Estos resultados tienen una serie de implicaciones prácticas para las empresas, ya que implican una complicación más en la gestión de la espera. Las empresas no solo tienen que esforzarse para gestionar y reducir la espera, sino que también tienen que preocuparse para que esta no se deba a causas que escapan de su control, como comportamientos o actitudes de sus trabajadores o de sus clientes.

    Most bivariate models assume the same type of marginal distribution, with two parameters, for two variables. The disadvantage of these models for hydrologic flow studies is that it is often difficult to make adjustments for observed flows. A complete example is presented of the application flexibility of the SMPLNORM program, which calculates the joint probability of two variables, Q1 and Q2, with marginal distributions that have three parameters. The program can also provide the probability of nonexceedence of a third variable H, mathematically related to the first two variables. Two applications are discussed, in which Q1 and Q2 are the flows of two rivers controlling the variable H, which is a water level in both cases. Theoretically, this model could also be applied to other types of variables. The proposed model is based on the hypothesis that a Box-Cox type of power transformation could reduce the marginal distributions of Q1 and Q2 to a normal distribution. One of the main conclusions of the study addresses the importance of taking into account the correlation between Q1 and Q2 to obtain a valid estimate of H. 11 refs., 14 figs., 7 tabs.

Cet article est centré sur le premier exercice de « l’ekphrasis » où il a été proposé aux élèves la description de quatre tableaux de styles, thèmes et artistes différents. Chaque descriptif posait des contraintes en termes de composition des images et d’interprétation d’un vocabulaire spécifique aux arts visuels. Ekphrasis: Instead of describing what they were seeing, they created what was described This contribution goes into the domain of current research in Visual Arts didactics putting in evidence the methods of the “réception d’œuvre”. It reports an artistic learning project based on René and Madeleine Junod’s collection and practiced during four month of weekly Visual Arts lessons in two 7th grade classes of a public school in the city of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The project was built in three parts: an “ekphrasis” activity, which implies describing by words a few paintings of the collection, then copying them using the “grille de copie” method; a few “games of observation skills stimulation” during the visit of a museum, then reinforced and completed by the “painting and drawing activities” at home and in the classroom. This article focuses only on the first exercise of the “ekphrasis” in which four paintings descriptions, all of different styles, themes and artists, were given to the students. Each description setting represented a constraint in terms of images composition and interpretation of a specific Visual Arts vocabulary.

    Full Text Available This article addresses a key issue during the course of Mexico's 2006 presidential campaign: How did markets react to changes in support for the left-leaning Andrés Manuel López Obrador (PRD? To answer this question, I develop a series of alternative arguments for how investors would respond changes in PRD support during the campaign. I evaluate the arguments using a times series GARCH model.The results show that changes in the levels of support for the candidate did not affect market returns but they did affect market volatility. Increased electoral uncertainty as margins narrowed, raised market volatility, while increasing electoral certainty regardless of whether rises in support were for López Obrador or the market-friendly Felipe Calderón (PAN, reduced it. This finding reveals that investors may have accepted the prospect of a López Obrador presidency ahead of the election but not the possible post-election social and political instability associated with a tight race.

    To determine factors that may predict intestinal pseudo-obstruction (IpsO) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients complicated by digestive manifestations. SLE patients with digestive manifestations (n = 135) were followed at Southern Medical University affiliated Nanfang Hospital from 2000 until 2013. Demographic variables, clinical features, and laboratory data were compared between the two groups. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression models were used to establish factors that predispose to IpsO in these patients. At the end of the study period, 32 (23.7%) patients had developed IpsO. Mortality (9 patients) was infrequent and the cause of death was unrelated to IpsO. Independent predictors of IpsO in SLE were ureterectasia, anti-U1 RNP(+), peritonitis, and low C3 levels. Regular abdominal X-ray examinations are recommended in SLE patients with ureterectasia, anti-U1 RNP(+), peritonitis, or low C3 levels, as early diagnosis and therapy may prevent unnecessary surgical intervention and improve the disease course. © The Author(s) 2015.

  9. Optimal Sensor Placement for Latticed Shell Structure Based on an Improved Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Xun Zhang

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Optimal sensor placement is a key issue in the structural health monitoring of large-scale structures. However, some aspects in existing approaches require improvement, such as the empirical and unreliable selection of mode and sensor numbers and time-consuming computation. A novel improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO algorithm is proposed to address these problems. The approach firstly employs the cumulative effective modal mass participation ratio to select mode number. Three strategies are then adopted to improve the PSO algorithm. Finally, the IPSO algorithm is utilized to determine the optimal sensors number and configurations. A case study of a latticed shell model is implemented to verify the feasibility of the proposed algorithm and four different PSO algorithms. The effective independence method is also taken as a contrast experiment. The comparison results show that the optimal placement schemes obtained by the PSO algorithms are valid, and the proposed IPSO algorithm has better enhancement in convergence speed and precision.

    Particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm has been developing rapidly and has been applied widely since it was introduced, as it is easily understood and realized. This paper presents an improved particle swarm optimization algorithm (IPSO) to improve the performance of standard PSO, which uses the dynamic inertia weight that decreases according to iterative generation increasing. It is tested with a set of 6 benchmark functions with 30, 50 and 150 different dimensions and compared with standard PSO. Experimental results indicate that the IPSO improves the search performance on the benchmark functions significantly

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Possible single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP interactions in breast cancer are usually not investigated in genome-wide association studies. Previously, we proposed a particle swarm optimization (PSO method to compute these kinds of SNP interactions. However, this PSO does not guarantee to find the best result in every implement, especially when high-dimensional data is investigated for SNP-SNP interactions. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In this study, we propose IPSO algorithm to improve the reliability of PSO for the identification of the best protective SNP barcodes (SNP combinations and genotypes with maximum difference between cases and controls associated with breast cancer. SNP barcodes containing different numbers of SNPs were computed. The top five SNP barcode results are retained for computing the next SNP barcode with a one-SNP-increase for each processing step. Based on the simulated data for 23 SNPs of six steroid hormone metabolisms and signalling-related genes, the performance of our proposed IPSO algorithm is evaluated. Among 23 SNPs, 13 SNPs displayed significant odds ratio (OR values (1.268 to 0.848; p<0.05 for breast cancer. Based on IPSO algorithm, the jointed effect in terms of SNP barcodes with two to seven SNPs show significantly decreasing OR values (0.84 to 0.57; p<0.05 to 0.001. Using PSO algorithm, two to four SNPs show significantly decreasing OR values (0.84 to 0.77; p<0.05 to 0.001. Based on the results of 20 simulations, medians of the maximum differences for each SNP barcode generated by IPSO are higher than by PSO. The interquartile ranges of the boxplot, as well as the upper and lower hinges for each n-SNP barcode (n = 3∼10 are more narrow in IPSO than in PSO, suggesting that IPSO is highly reliable for SNP barcode identification. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Overall, the proposed IPSO algorithm is robust to provide exact identification of the best protective SNP barcodes for breast cancer.

En este artículo analizaré y discutiré algunas de las consecuencias más relevantes originadas del entendimiento del concepto de “integración” por los principales actores implicados en este proceso, utilizando como ejemplo el caso de las “buenas prácticas” debido a su importancia dentro de los mecanismos de la “gobernanza multinivel” comunitaria. A través de este análisis, resaltaré que en el contexto comunitario, la noción de integración ha sido construida a través de un ejercicio de (aparente despolitización y tecnificación, cuyos resultados sin embargo son contradictorios -puesto que el elemento político a menudo retorna y se manifiesta “en el trasfondo”, “al margen” y “dentro” de lo técnico- a la vez que eficaces -en tanto en cuanto este ejercicio ha conseguido impulsar y moldear ciertas formas de saber, hablar y actuar sobre la integración de inmigrantes, naturalizando determinadas relaciones de poder existentes en la sociedad- . El material empírico para el presente artículo está basado en el trabajo de campo realizado en Bruselas entre 2011 y 2012 para la investigación doctoral. Consiste en entrevistas a los actores sociales y políticos más importantes del marco comunitario de la integración, en la observación de distintos encuentros y en la lectura de fuentes variadas.

    Full Text Available Bioethics and law for what and whom? Discussions about the Regulation of assisted reproductive techniques in ColombiaThe recent concern for the normative regulation of assisted reproduction techniques (ART, raises discussions about how to manage the embryos, how many times to use a sample, how to define parenthood, and other issues. However, it has not been questioned who would be favouredwith these regulations and what is their contribution to social equity and development for an entire country. Considering that the urgency to guarantee the sexual and reproductive rights —theoretical framework invoked to require ART— should be aimed at reaching a fair society.The proposed analysis will be undertaken considering the case of applying the ART for surrogate mothers in Colombia. The paper presents the context in which it is intended to apply the normative regulation, alongside the review of some conceptual and empirical contributions by Michael Sandel concerning trends in surrogate motherhood among «developed» and «third world» countries. This should allow considering the profiles of fertility in Colombia as a sign of inequality in our country.Subsequently, we will approach the current legal discussion in Colombia concerning surrogate motherhood, from the only case of surrogate motherhood resolved by the Colombian Constitutional Court and the bill projects presented in the Colombian Congress to regulate this issue. Finally,we will present some reflections and discussion on the normative regulation of the ART and surrogate gestation, and the law as a transmission belt of varied interests, that is, that it ought to lead to common good, solidarity and cooperation, and not simply function as a regulator that ensures the fulfilment of contracts.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To compare the 1999 World Health Organization (WHO fasting plasma glucose (FPG criteria and the WHO 2-hour post-challenge glucose (2hPG criteria during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT in identifying adults in Jamaica with hyperglycemia. As the OGTT is not commonly used in clinical practice, factors associated with the failure of the FPG criteria to detect persons with impaired 2hPG were investigated. METHODS: A random sample of 2 096 adults, 25-74 years old, living in the town of Spanish Town, Jamaica, was evaluated for diabetes. After excluding 215 individuals for reasons such as missing data, the remaining 1 881 persons were composed of 187 who were previously known to have diabetes and 1 694 who were screened for diabetes with both FPG and 2hPG. RESULTS: The FPG criteria detected 83 cases of diabetes, compared to 72 by the 2hPG criteria. The kappa statistic comparing the two criteria was 0.31 (95% confidence interval: 0.28- 0.34, indicating fair agreement. There were 261 cases of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT and 92 cases of impaired fasting glucose (IFG. In those 92 with IFG, an OGTT would identify 34 cases of IGT and 14 cases of diabetes. Of those classified as normoglycemic by FPG criteria, 14% of them had IGT or diabetes by 2hPG criteria. The factors predicting the likelihood of nondetection of impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes by FPG were age, body mass index, central obesity, systolic blood pressure, and female sex. By receiver operating characteristic curve analysis, an FPG of 5.1 mmol/L would predict a 2hPG > 7.8 mmol/L. CONCLUSIONS: A few individuals classified as normal on FPG will have IGT or diabetes, and an OGTT will be needed to identify them. The yield of IGT detected by screening in Jamaica can be improved by lowering the threshold for IFG or by using clinical information to identify high-risk individuals.OBJETIVO: Comparar los criterios publicados por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS en 1999 acerca del uso de la prueba de glucemia en ayunas (PGA y de la prueba de tolerancia a una dosis oral de glucosa con valoración a las dos horas (PTG2h para identificar a adultos hiperglucémicos en Jamaica. Como la PTG2h no se administra normalmente en un contexto clínico, se investigaron los factores asociados con la inutilidad de la PGA para detectar a personas con hiperglucemia según la PTG2h. MÉTODOS: Se examinó una muestra aleatoria de 2 096 adultos de 25 a 47 años de edad que vivían en la ciudad de Spanish Town, Jamaica, para determinar la presencia de diabetes. Una vez que se eliminó a 215 personas por diversos motivos, entre ellos la ausencia de datos, quedaron 1 881 personas entre las cuales se encontraban 187 que se sabía de antemano que tenían diabetes y otras 1 694 que fueron sometidas tanto a la PGA como a la PTG2h. RESULTADOS: La PGA permitió detectar 83 casos de diabetes, mientras que la PTG2h permitió detectar 72. El estadístico kappa de comparación entre los dos criterios de valoración fue de 0,31 (intervalo de confianza de 95%: 0,28-0,34, valor que revela una concordancia moderada. Se observaron 261 casos de intolerancia a la glucosa tras la PTG2h y 92 casos de hiperglucemia en ayunas. En estas últimas 92 personas, la PTG2h sirvió para identificar 34 casos de intolerancia a la glucosa y 14 casos de diabetes. De las personas que se mostraron normoglucémicas según la PGA, 14% tenían intolerancia a la glucosa o diabetes, según la PTG2h. Algunos factores tuvieron valor pronóstico en relación con la falta de detección de la intolerancia a la glucosa o la diabetes. Estos fueron la edad, el índice de masa corporal, la concentración de la obesidad en el tronco y el abdomen, la tensión sistólica y el sexo femenino. De acuerdo con la curva de eficacia diagnóstica, una glucemia en ayunas de 5,1 mmol/L tendría valor pronóstico con respecto a la presencia de una glucemia de 7,8 mmol/L según la PTG2h. CONCLUSIONES: Algunas personas cuya glucemia en ayunas está dentro de lo normal tienen intolerancia a la glucosa o diabetes; por lo tanto, para identificarlas es necesario hacer la PTG2h. Se puede mejorar la detección de casos de intolerancia a la glucosa en Jamaica si se reduce el umbral de normalidad para la PGA o si se toman en cuenta los datos clínicos para identificar a las personas en alto riesgo.

    Full Text Available Riders to the Sea: An opera in one act based on the play by John Millington Synge, Ralph Vaughan Williams’s fifth opera, composed between 1925 and 1932, after The Poisoned Kiss (A Romantic Extravaganza, was first performed at London’s Royal College of Music on December 1st, 1937, with Malcolm Sargent conducting. A masterpiece of poetic intensity and a compendium of pain and quiet, resigned courage, worthy of a Greek tragedy, the Irish dramatist’s play was faithfully adapted by the composer-librettist in a work whose originality and universal message cannot fail to impress. Originating in his wide-ranging imagination―humanistic, brotherly, idealistic, universal―it speaks of a voyage of initiation to the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland. The composer, inspired by folk wisdom and the world of the Spirit, open to worldly solicitations as well as to meditation, saw the play as a vehicle to highlight some aspects of his own musical heritage. In a few pages of dialogue, the score conveys a whole range of different emotions arising from the confrontation with Nature, and more particularly, from the forlorn struggle of the islanders against the sea and God, their ruler.

    Full Text Available A new optimized extreme learning machine- (ELM- based method for power system transient stability prediction (TSP using synchrophasors is presented in this paper. First, the input features symbolizing the transient stability of power systems are extracted from synchronized measurements. Then, an ELM classifier is employed to build the TSP model. And finally, the optimal parameters of the model are optimized by using the improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO algorithm. The novelty of the proposal is in the fact that it improves the prediction performance of the ELM-based TSP model by using IPSO to optimize the parameters of the model with synchrophasors. And finally, based on the test results on both IEEE 39-bus system and a large-scale real power system, the correctness and validity of the presented approach are verified.

    2007-01-01

    This paper presents a new algorithm for solving the optimal contract capacities of a time-of-use (TOU) rates industrial customer. This algorithm is named iteration particle swarm optimization (IPSO). A new index, called iteration best is incorporated into particle swarm optimization (PSO) to improve solution quality and computation efficiency. Expanding line construction cost and contract recovery cost are considered, as well as demand contract capacity cost and penalty bill, in the selection of the optimal contract capacities. The resulting optimal contract capacity effectively reaches the minimum electricity charge of TOU rates users. A significant reduction in electricity costs is observed. The effects of expanding line construction cost and contract recovery cost on the selection of optimal contract capacities can also be estimated. The feasibility of the new algorithm is demonstrated by a numerical example, and the IPSO solution quality and computation efficiency are compared to those of other algorithms

    This paper presents the first hardware implementation of neuro-fuzzy system (NFS) with its metaheuristic learning ability on field programmable gate array (FPGA). Metaheuristic learning of NFS for all of its parameters is accomplished by using the improved particle swarm optimization (iPSO). As a second novelty, a new functional approach, which does not require any memory and multiplier usage, is proposed for the Gaussian membership functions of NFS. NFS and its learning using iPSO are implemented on Xilinx Virtex5 xc5vlx110-3ff1153 and efficiency of the proposed implementation tested on two dynamic system identification problems and licence plate detection problem as a practical application. Results indicate that proposed NFS implementation and membership function approximation is as effective as the other approaches available in the literature but requires less hardware resources.

    Highlights: • Novel effects of DSM data on electricity consumption forecasting is examined. • Optimal ANN models based on IPSO and SFL algorithms are developed. • Addition of DSM data to socio-economic indicators data reduces MAPE by 36%. - Abstract: Worldwide implementation of demand side management (DSM) programs has had positive impacts on electrical energy consumption (EEC) and the examination of their effects on long-term forecasting is warranted. The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of historical DSM data on accuracy of EEC modeling and long-term forecasting. To achieve the objective, optimal artificial neural network (ANN) models based on improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) and shuffled frog-leaping (SFL) algorithms are developed for EEC forecasting. For long-term EEC modeling and forecasting for the U.S. for 2010–2030, two historical data types used in conjunction with developed models include (i) EEC and (ii) socio-economic indicators, namely, gross domestic product, energy imports, energy exports, and population for 1967–2009 period. Simulation results from IPSO-ANN and SFL-ANN models show that using socio-economic indicators as input data achieves lower mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) for long-term EEC forecasting, as compared with EEC data. Based on IPSO-ANN, it is found that, for the U.S. EEC long-term forecasting, the addition of DSM data to socio-economic indicators data reduces MAPE by 36% and results in the estimated difference of 3592.8 MBOE (5849.9 TW h) in EEC for 2010–2030

    A panorama parking assistant system (PPAS) for the automotive aftermarket together with a practical improved particle swarm optimization method (IPSO) are proposed in this paper. In the PPAS system, four fisheye cameras are installed in the vehicle with different views, and four channels of video frames captured by the cameras are processed as a 360-deg top-view image around the vehicle. Besides the embedded design of PPAS, the key problem for image distortion correction and mosaicking is the efficiency of parameter optimization in the process of camera calibration. In order to address this problem, an IPSO method is proposed. Compared with other parameter optimization methods, the proposed method allows a certain range of dynamic change for the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters, and can exploit only one reference image to complete all of the optimization; therefore, the efficiency of the whole camera calibration is increased. The PPAS is commercially available, and the IPSO method is a highly practical way to increase the efficiency of the installation and the calibration of PPAS in automobile 4S shops.

    Accurate and rapid recognition of defects is essential for structural integrity and health monitoring of in-service device using eddy current (EC) non-destructive testing. This paper introduces a novel model-free method that includes three main modules: a signal pre-processing module, a classifier module and an optimisation module. In the signal pre-processing module, a kind of two-stage differential structure is proposed to suppress the lift-off fluctuation that could contaminate the EC signal. In the classifier module, multi-class support vector machine (SVM) based on one-against-one strategy is utilised for its good accuracy. In the optimisation module, the optimal parameters of classifier are obtained by an improved particle swarm optimisation (IPSO) algorithm. The proposed IPSO technique can improve convergence performance of the primary PSO through the following strategies: nonlinear processing of inertia weight, introductions of the black hole and simulated annealing model with extremum disturbance. The good generalisation ability of the IPSO-SVM model has been validated through adding additional specimen into the testing set. Experiments show that the proposed algorithm can achieve higher recognition accuracy and efficiency than other well-known classifiers and the superiorities are more obvious with less training set, which contributes to online application.

    In response to changes in the Gas Distribution Act and the Gas Distributor Marketing Regulation, the New Brunswick Board of Commissioners of Public Utilities (Board), issued an order in June 2003 for a generic hearing regarding the sale of gas and customer services in the natural gas industry in New Brunswick. The purpose of the hearing was to have an open discussion among intervenors regarding several issues, such as whether the Code of Conduct provides fair and adequate rules for marketers; should Enbridge Gas New Brunswick (EGNB) be required to follow rules similar to the Code of Conduct; the requirements surrounding letters of credit; the Board's decision on Rules and Regulations regarding the billing conduct of gas distributors and marketers; the information that should be provided by a gas marketer or a distributor to the customer before the customer enters into an agreement for the supply of gas; the need for information on price volatility; the need for EGNB to notify potential customers of all possible suppliers of gas; the removal of automatic renewal clauses from gas retailers' contracts; how the Board should determine if prices are reasonably and sufficiently competitive; financial reporting requirements; the role of the Board in response to customer complaints regarding the sale of gas by a distributor; and, the Board's action regarding Enbridge Atlantic's plan to exit the New Brunswick market. This report provided the response to these issues by 10 intervenors.

    Full Text Available La paternité japonaise a longtemps été caractérisée par un engagement professionnel exacerbé et une absence marquée au niveau familial. Cependant, le contexte économique et politique récent a induit certains changements dans la manière d’appréhender la paternité. Il est ainsi possible d’identifier trois types de positionnements dans les discours récents relatifs à la paternité au Japon : 1 le père “pourvoyeur”, garantissant les ressources économiques nécessaires aux besoins des enfants, 2 le père “socialisateur”, encadrant ses enfants dans l’apprentissage des normes sociales, 3 le père “soigneur”, aidant ses enfants pour ce qu’ils ne peuvent faire. Il n’est pas facile pour les pères de trouver un équilibre par rapport aux responsabilités que ces trois approches supposent. Les codes professionnels valorisant “l’homme dominant” et les carences du système d’encadrement des enfants obligent de nombreux pères à s’investir énormément dans leur vie professionnelle tandis que de nombreuses mères restent à la maison. Les réactions des pères face à cette situation sont variées. Certains valorisent une division genrée des responsabilités parentales et se consacrent pleinement à leur travail. D’autres articulent travail et famille tandis que l’épouse reste à la maison. D’autres, enfin, optent pour une articulation travail/famille impliquant les deux membres du couple, redéfinissant ainsi la signification de la masculinité.Japanese fatherhood has been characterized as preoccupation with work and alienation from family. However, Japan’s recent political and economic conditions have brought about changes and diversification in fatherhood. We can recognize three types of father’s responsibilities in recent discourses on fatherhood in Japan : 1 “provider,” supplying necessary economic resources for the growth of children, 2 “socializer,” supporting children to learn social norms and good manners, 3 “carer,” helping children by doing what children cannot do. It is difficult for fathers to keep a balance between the responsibility as a provider and as a socializer/carer. Male-dominant employment practices and insufficient child-support systems force many fathers to work very long and many mothers to stay home. Fathers’ reactions to the conflict are various. Some affirm gender division of parental responsibilities and justify their insufficient involvement in childcare. Some take a responsibility as a sole provider and make an effort to get involved in childcare as much as possible. Some try to juggle work and childcare and build egalitarian relationship with his wife, rethinking the meaning of masculinity.

    Full Text Available En el texto se problematizará la inclusión del género en psicología a partir de las construcciones discursivas obtenidas en una investigación cualitativa sobre las opiniones de estudiantes, profesores y profesionales. Dado que la mayor aceptación asimila "género" a "diferencia sexual" desde la tradición positivista y dualista, se neutraliza su capacidad transformadora. Esta versión "descomprometida" del género, se disocia discursivamente del feminismo social y las epistemologías feministas que generan mayores resistencias y temores. Tal y como argumentaré, una psicología positivista con su supuesta neutralidad y objetividad así como la permanencia de un imaginario androcéntrico y etnocéntrico dificultan la capacidad de cuestionar una psicología poco sensible a las relaciones de poder. Finamente, propongo la necesidad de combinar un análisis del currículo oculto con una comprensión de las argumentaciones y creencias que forman parte de la vida cotidiana del ejercicio y docencia de la psicología. Así se pueden retomar de forma conjunta los mecanismos de (reproducción y difusión de la ciencia con las relaciones e interacciones académicas y profesionales marcadas por el sistema sexo-género, que operan de forma compleja en las combinaciones de ciencia e ideología o discurso y acción.This text provides a discussion on the inclusion of gender in psychology from the discoursive constructions obtained in a qualitative investigation about students', teachers' and professionals' opinions. Since most people who support this idea relate "gender" to "sexual difference", based on to the positivist and dualistic tradition, its capacity of transformation is neutralized. In discoursive terms, this "uncommitted" version of gender is dissociated from social feminism and the feminist epistemologies that generate great resistance and fear. As it will be explained, a positivist kind of psychology with supposed neutrality and objectivity, as well as the continuous character of an androcentric and ethnocentric imaginary field, makes it difficult to question a kind of psychology that is little sensitive to power relations. Finally, there is a proposal of combining the analysis of a hidden curriculum with the understanding of argumentation and beliefs that consist part of everyday teaching and working with psychology. This way, it is possible to resume the mechanisms of science (reproduction and diffusion with the academic and profesional relations and interactions that are characterized by the sex-gender system and operate discourse and action in a complex way, in the combinations of science and ideology.

Os resultados sugerem que é necessário maior apoio na formação dos diretores do setor particular e um melhor reconhecimento económico ao trabalho desempenhado pelos diretores docentes em ambos os setores.The article describes the profile of administrators at public and private elementary and secondary schools in the city of Santiago de Cali (Colombia, specifically schools lower income areas (economic brackets one to four The profiles are based on demographic, socioeconomic, academic and professional characteristics. The article is the result of a study on conditions surrounding implementation of the educational policy outlined in Colombia's National Bilingual Program. A survey was conducted and 70 administrators at 46 schools in the city responded. The results show school administrators are typically women between 50 and 60 years of age who had contact with the English language during their basic secondary studies, possess a specialization degree at the very most, and have more than 11 years of professional experience. Differences were found between the public and private sectors. In the former, administrators tend to have a higher degree of academic training and better wages. The results suggest the need for more support to train administrators in the private sector, along with better pay for the job being done by teaching administrators in both sectors.

    L’asthme est un grave problème de santé pour les enfants inuits et des Premières nations. Chez les enfants de moins d’un an, il faut distinguer l’asthme de la bronchiolite virale, anormalement fréquente chez les enfants autochtones du Canada. Chez les enfants de moins de six ans, le diagnostic dépend de la présence de symptômes classiques, de l’absence de caractéristiques atypiques et de la consignation de la réponse au traitement, notamment la réponse rapide et transitoire aux bronchodilatateurs. Chez les enfants plus âgés, il faut, dans la mesure du possible, déterminer la présence d’une obstruction réversible des voies aériennes par spirométrie afin de confirmer le diagnostic, ainsi qu’évaluer et corriger les déclencheurs environnementaux. L’utilisation régulière de corticoïdes en aérosol est la principale mesure à prendre pour maintenir un bon contrôle de l’asthme chez les enfants asthmatiques. Les clients et leur famille devraient recevoir une formation sur l’asthme. Il faut réévaluer régulièrement le contrôle aux visites de suivi dans des centres de santé et rajuster le traitement à la dose la plus basse possible pour le maintien de ce contrôle.

Anthropologists and ethnographers spent a minimum of 5.5 hours with each consented patient and filmed their behaviors in everyday situations. Visual data and notes were analyzed to identify HRQoL-related themes.Results: The study included 50 adult patients. Patients described their appearance with disgust and self-loathing. Frustration was expressed due to a perceived lack of control of their lives. Prior to initiation of biologic treatment, daily rituals absorbed a good part of their day, including applying creams, checking one's appearance, and covering the body. Due to a lack of cultural discourse and patient's difficulty in articulating the impact of psoriasis, partners and family did not know how to react nor did they realize the full extent of the problem, and many patients experienced perceived social discrimination due to psoriasis, leaving them with feelings of isolation. Patients established on biologic treatment noticed a significant physical improvement and regained confidence, but psychosocial impacts, including social isolation, remained.Conclusion: This ethnographic study vividly depicted the unarticulated and emotional impact of psoriasis on the everyday lives of patients and presents an effective method of assessing HRQoL in chronic diseases.Keywords: psoriasis, health-related quality of life, ethnography, patient reported outcomes, conceptual model

    A number of volatile products formed in the gamma-radiolysis of nitrobenzene-carbon tetrachlorine solution have been identified using a GC-FTIR-MS technique. The conditions for separation of the products have been described. HCL, COCl 2 chlorobenzene, chloro- and dichloronitrobenzene, isomeric di-, tri- and tetrachlorobenzene, hexachloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, α,α,α-trichloromethylbenzene, chloro-and dichloroisocyanatobenzene, and other chloroderivatives are among the important products formed. Ipso-substituion of the nitro group as well as hydrogen atom by chlorine atom and Cl 3 free radical is noticed. It is proposed that chloroisocyanatobenzene is formed as the result of interaction of dichlorocarbene and nitrobenzene. (orig.)

    At the first Banff Summit for Urban Animal Strategies (BSUAS) in 2006, delegates clearly indicated that a lack of reliable Canadian statistics hampers municipal leaders and legislators in their efforts to develop urban animal strategies that create and sustain a healthy community for pets and people. To gain a better understanding of the situation, BSUAS municipal delegates and other industry stakeholders partnered with Ipsos Reid, one of the world's leading polling firms, to conduct a national survey on the "Business of Urban Animals." The results of the survey, summarized in this article, were presented at the BSUAS meeting in October 2008. In addition, each participating community will receive a comprehensive written analysis, as well as a customized report. The online survey was conducted from September 22 to October 1, 2008. There were 7208 participants, including 3973 pet and 3235 non-pet owners from the Ipsos-Reid's proprietary Canadian online panel. The national results were weighted to reflect the true population distribution across Canada and the panel was balanced on all major demographics to mirror Statistics Canada census information. The margin for error for the national results is 1/- 1.15%.

    In this paper, bond cleavage reactions are discussed in relation to the softening and solubilization of coal. Were used 9,10-dihydroanthracene (DHA) and 9,10-dihydrophenanthrene (DHP) as models of hydrogen donating compounds in coal, and bibenzyl, 1,2-diethane, benzylphenylether, and 1,5-dibenzylnaphthalene were used as models of bridge structure compounds. They were compared mutually, as to reactivity of coal against DHA and DHP. For the homolytic cleavage of bridges, DHA with excellent radical supplement performance provided excellent hydrogen donating performance. While, for the ipso-position cleavage of bridges, it was found that DHP can act as an effective hydrogen donor. For the reaction between coal and hydrogenated aromatic compounds, cleavage of relatively weak bonds, such as ether linkage and dimethylene linkage, occurred at about 380{degree}C, and hydrogen from DHA or DHP was consumed. On the other hand, the results suggested that the cleavage reaction at ipso-position affected by hydrogen donating solvent is also important at temperature range around 420{degree}C. 2 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.

  6. An Improved PSO-Based MPPT Control Strategy for Photovoltaic Systems

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a control strategy proposed for power maximizing which is a critical mechanism to ensure power track is maximized. Many tracking algorithms have been proposed for this purpose. One of the more commonly used techniques is the incremental conductance method. In this paper, an improved particle swarm optimization- (IPSO- based MPPT technique for photovoltaic system operating under varying environmental conditions is proposed. The approach of linearly decreasing scheme for weighting factor and cognitive and social parameter is modified. The proposed control scheme can overcome deficiency and accelerate convergence of the IPSO-based MPPT algorithm. The approach is not only capable of tracking the maximum power point under uniform insolation state, but also able to find the maximum power point under fast changing nonuniform insolation conditions. The photovoltaic systematic process with control schemes is created using MATLAB Simulink to verify the effectiveness with several simulations being carried out and then compared with the conventional incremental conductance technique. Lastly, the effectiveness of the intended techniques is proven using real data obtained form previous literature. With the change in insolation and temperature portrait, it produces exceptional MPPT maximization. This shows that optimum performance is achieved using the intended method compared to the typical method.

  7. A New Method for Single-Epoch Ambiguity Resolution with Indoor Pseudolite Positioning.

    Ambiguity resolution (AR) is crucial for high-precision indoor pseudolite positioning. Due to the existing characteristics of the pseudolite positioning system, such as the geometry structure of the stationary pseudolite which is consistently invariant, the indoor signal is easy to interrupt and the first order linear truncation error cannot be ignored, and a new AR method based on the idea of the ambiguity function method (AFM) is proposed in this paper. The proposed method is a single-epoch and nonlinear method that is especially well-suited for indoor pseudolite positioning. Considering the very low computational efficiency of conventional AFM, we adopt an improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) algorithm to search for the best solution in the coordinate domain, and variances of a least squares adjustment is conducted to ensure the reliability of the solving ambiguity. Several experiments, including static and kinematic tests, are conducted to verify the validity of the proposed AR method. Numerical results show that the IPSO significantly improved the computational efficiency of AFM and has a more elaborate search ability compared to the conventional grid searching method. For the indoor pseudolite system, which had an initial approximate coordinate precision better than 0.2 m, the AFM exhibited good performances in both static and kinematic tests. With the corrected ambiguity gained from our proposed method, indoor pseudolite positioning can achieve centimeter-level precision using a low-cost single-frequency software receiver.

  8. Enhancing Speech Recognition Using Improved Particle Swarm Optimization Based Hidden Markov Model

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Enhancing speech recognition is the primary intention of this work. In this paper a novel speech recognition method based on vector quantization and improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO is suggested. The suggested methodology contains four stages, namely, (i denoising, (ii feature mining (iii, vector quantization, and (iv IPSO based hidden Markov model (HMM technique (IP-HMM. At first, the speech signals are denoised using median filter. Next, characteristics such as peak, pitch spectrum, Mel frequency Cepstral coefficients (MFCC, mean, standard deviation, and minimum and maximum of the signal are extorted from the denoised signal. Following that, to accomplish the training process, the extracted characteristics are given to genetic algorithm based codebook generation in vector quantization. The initial populations are created by selecting random code vectors from the training set for the codebooks for the genetic algorithm process and IP-HMM helps in doing the recognition. At this point the creativeness will be done in terms of one of the genetic operation crossovers. The proposed speech recognition technique offers 97.14% accuracy.

    1985-04-01

    This paper reviews the status of various practices used throughout the world for managing low-level radioactive wastes. Most of the information in this review was obtained through the DOE-sponsored International Program Support Office (IPSO) activities at Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) at Richland, Washington. The objective of IPSO is to collect, evaluate, and disseminate information on international waste management and nuclear fuel cycle activities. The center's sources of information vary widely and include the proceedings of international symposia, papers presented at technical society meetings, published topical reports, foreign trip reports, and the news media. Periodically, the information is published in topical reports. Much of the information contained in this report was presented at the Fifth Annual Participants' Information Meeting sponsored by DOE's Low-Level Waste Management Program Office at Denver, Colorado, in September of 1983. Subsequent to that presentation, the information has been updated, particularly with information provided by Dr. P. Colombo of Brookhaven National Laboratory who corresponded with low-level waste management specialists in many countries. The practices reviewed in this paper generally represent actual operations. However, major R and D activities, along with future plans, are also discussed. 98 refs., 6 tabls

    2017-09-01

    Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), multiple episodes of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC; vaginal yeast infection) within a 12-month period, adversely affects quality of life, mental health, and sexual activity. Diagnosis is not straightforward, as VVC is defined by the combination of often nonspecific vaginal symptoms and the presence of yeast-which is a common vaginal commensal. Estimating the incidence and prevalence is challenging: most VVC is diagnosed and treated empirically, the availability for purchase of effective therapies over the counter enables self-diagnosis and treatment, and the duration of the relatively benign VVC symptoms is short, introducing errors into any estimates relying on medical records or patient recall. We evaluate current estimates of VVC and RVVC and provide new prevalence estimates using data from a 2011 seven-country (n = 7345) internet panel survey on VVC conducted by Ipsos Health (https://www.ipsos.com/en). We also evaluate information on VVC-associated visits using the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey. The estimated probability of VVC by age 50 varied widely by country (from 23% to 49%, mean 39%), as did the estimated probability of RVVC after VVC (from 14% to 28%, mean 23%). However estimated, the probability of RVVC was high suggesting RVVC is a common condition. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Due to the dependence of the chemical and physical properties of the bimetallic nanoparticles (NPs) on their structures, a fundamental understanding of their structural characteristics is crucial for their syntheses and wide applications. In this article, a systematical atomic-level investigation of Au–Pd bimetallic NPs is conducted by using the improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) with quantum correction Sutton–Chen potentials (Q-SC) at different Au/Pd ratios and different sizes. In the IPSO, the simulated annealing is introduced into the classical particle swarm optimization (PSO) to improve the effectiveness and reliability. In addition, the influences of initial structure, particle size and composition on structural stability and structural features are also studied. The simulation results reveal that the initial structures have little effects on the stable structures, but influence the converging rate greatly, and the convergence rate of the mixing initial structure is clearly faster than those of the core-shell and phase structures. We find that the Au–Pd NPs prefer the structures with Au-rich in the outer layers while Pd-rich in the inner ones. Especially, when the Au/Pd ratio is 6:4, the structure of the nanoparticle (NP) presents a standardized Pd core Au shell structure. (paper)

    1985-07-01

    As the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) and DOE contractors have increased the magnitude and scope of their cooperative activities with other nations in the nuclear fuel cycle and waste management field, a need has developed for ready sources of information concerning foreign waste management programs, DOE technology exchange policies, bilateral fuel cycle and waste management agreements and plans and activities to implement those agreements. The INFX (International InLormation E~change) Guide is one of a series of documents that have been prepared to provide that information. The INFX Guide has been compiled under the charter of PNL's International Support Office (IPSO) to maintain for DOE a center to collect, organize, evaluate and disseminate information on foreign and international radioactive waste management programs. Because the information in this document is constantly subject to change, the document is assembled in loose-leaf form to accommodate frequent updates.

  7. Decree no. 85-449 of 23 April 1985 in implementation of Act no. 83-630 of 12 July 1983 on democratisation of public inquiries and environmental protection with regard to major nuclear installations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1985-01-01

    Act No. 83-630 of 19 July 1983 on democratisation of public inquiries and environmental protection prescribes a public inquiry procedure for work likely to affect the environment. This Decree was made in implementation of the Act. Its scope is set out in an annexed table which provides that this new procedure applies to major nuclear installations governed by Decree No. 63-1128 of 11 December 1963 on nuclear installations and their radioactive effluent releases. The definition of a major nuclear installation which, until now, was set out in orders, is henceforth included in the 1963 Decree which is amended by the above Decree. As regards substance, the main modifications concerning nuclear installations are those directly resulting from the 1983 Act: one month's duration at least for the inquiry, designation of an inquiry commissioner by the president of the administrative court, stay of execution decided ipso facto by the judicial authority in case of the inquiry commissioner's negative opinion.

  8. Impact of rapid urbanization on mosquitoes and their disease transmission potential in Accra and Tema, Ghana.

    Chinery, W A

    1995-06-01

    The total of 75 mosquito species recorded in Accra have declined to 28 species. Contributing factors to this decline and the reduction in prevalence of malaria and bancroftian filariasis in Accra presently include extensive water pollution and a fairly high daily mosquito mortality due to several factors including loss of natural adult resting places, use of mosquito repellents and the probable increase of Anopheles arabiensis population. Presently low yellow fever incidence is due inter alia to loss of its feral vectors and reduced intradomiciliary breeding of Aedes aegypti (L) although more common species like A. gambiae s.l., A. aegypti and C. p. quinquefasciatus could between them transmit many other arboviruses. However because of ready availability of human blood, spill-over of viruses from reservoir hosts to man will be rare. Ipso factor, malaria is the most common mosquito-borne disease with centripetal distribution of prevalence.

  9. Public perception of nuclear power in Mexico after Fukushima

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Palacios, J. C.; Alonso, G.; Ramirez, R.

    2015-09-01

    This section presents some of the results of four studies on international public opinion about nuclear energy, the first one made several years before the Fukushima accident, conducted in 2005 by the IAEA through the company Globe Scan Inc. The second study was conducted by the same company in 2011 a few months after the Fukushima accident, including also corresponding results to two studies conducted by the British firm Ipsos Mori (of years 2011 and 2012 respectively). Finally three studies conducted by the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) in 2006, 2008 and 2013 are presented. From the results of these studies was determined that the Fukushima accident itself had a negative effect on public opinion in Mexico, as throughout the world, but this trend is reversing. Also it found that public opinion in Mexico on using reactors to generate electricity is favorable, although not still has much support from the government for the construction of new nuclear power plants.

    1993-01-01

    A good deal of products formed in the γ-radiolysis of isomeric nitroaniline solutions in carbon tetrachloride have been identified using GC-FTIR-MS technique. Tetrachloroethylene, chlorobenzene, hexachloroethane isomeric di-, tri- and tetrachlorobenzenes and chloroisocyanatobenzenes are among the important products formed in the radiolysis. Formation of dichlorobenzene is the result of ipso-substitution of both the nitro and aniline group by chlorine atom and the subsequent chloration of dichlorobenzene results in the formation of polychlorobenzenes. Chloroisocyanatobenzene is proposed to be the product arising from the interaction of dichlorocarbene and the nitro group of nitroaniline followed by chlorination of the resulting product, isocyanatobenzene. A 94% yield of undissolved 1,2-aminonitrobenzene chloride salt is obtained from the radiolysis of o-nitroaniline solution in carbon tetrachloride with a radiation yield of 1.83 molecules per 100 eV absorbed energy for an irradiation dose of 267 kGy.

    1993-04-01

    Twenty-six mother-child dyads played together in a laboratory setting. Play sessions were surreptitiously videotaped (with mothers' permission), and each maternal vocalization was transcribed and coded, first into 1 of 24 categories and then ipso facto into one of three supercategories--namely, controlling, autonomy supportive, and neutral. The degree of mothers' controllingness was calculated as the percentage of vocalizations coded as controlling. This index was correlated with the intrinsic motivation of their 6- or 7-year-old children, as assessed primarily by the free-choice behavioral measure and secondarily by a child self-report measure of interest and liking for the task. Both correlations were significantly negative, thereby suggesting that the robust laboratory findings of a negative relation between controlling contexts and individuals' intrinsic motivation are directly generalizable to the domain of parenting. Results are discussed in terms of the processes that undermine intrinsic motivation and the means through which parental controllingness is communicated.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available A new method called mutable smart bee (MSB algorithm proposed for cooperative optimizing of the maximum power output (MPO and minimum entropy generation (MEG of an Atkinson cycle as a multiobjective, multi-modal mechanical problem. This method utilizes mutable smart bee instead of classical bees. The results have been checked with some of the most common optimizing algorithms like Karaboga’s original artificial bee colony, bees algorithm (BA, improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO, Lukasik firefly algorithm (LFFA, and self-adaptive penalty function genetic algorithm (SAPF-GA. According to obtained results, it can be concluded that Mutable Smart Bee (MSB is capable to maintain its historical memory for the location and quality of food sources and also a little chance of mutation is considered for this bee. These features were found as strong elements for mining data in constraint areas and the results will prove this claim.

    Full Text Available Psoriasis is a chronic, immune-mediated disorder with a worldwide occurrence characterized by well-defined infiltrated erythematous papules and plaques, covered by silvery white or yellowish scales. It is a physically, socially and emotionally invalidating disorder that affects 1-2% of the population. Sexual health is an important part of general health and sexual dysfunctions can negatively affect self-esteem, confidence, interpersonal relationships and the quality of life. Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI, Psoriasis Disability Index (PDI and the Impact of Psoriasis on Quality of Life (IPSO questionnaire are all questionnaires used to assess the quality of life of patients with psoriasis and each has one question regarding sexual dysfunction. Several scales were also designed to particularly assess sexual satisfaction in men and women. The aim of this paper is to perform an overview of the existing studies on sexual dysfunction in psoriatic patients.

    Large-scale access of distributed power can improve the current environmental pressure, at the same time, increasing the complexity and uncertainty of overall distribution system. Rational planning of distributed power can effectively improve the system voltage level. To this point, the specific impact on distribution network power quality caused by the access of typical distributed power was analyzed and from the point of improving the learning factor and the inertia weight, an improved particle swarm optimization algorithm (IPSO) was proposed which could solve distributed generation planning for distribution network to improve the local and global search performance of the algorithm. Results show that the proposed method can well reduce the system network loss and improve the economic performance of system operation with distributed generation.

    Yoon, Ki-Young; Dong, Guangbin

    2018-05-23

    Herein, we report the palladium/norbornene cooperatively catalyzed polymerization, which simplifies synthesis of functional aromatic polymers, including conjugated polymers. Specifically, an A2B2C-type multicomponent polymerization is developed using ortho-amination/ipso-alkynylation reaction for preparing various amine-functionalized arylacetylene-containing polymers. Within a single catalytic cycle, the amine side-chains are site-selectively installed in situ via C-H activation during the polymerization process, which represents a major difference from conventional cross-coupling polymerizations. This in situ-functionalization strategy enables modular incorporation of functional side-chains from simple monomers, thereby conveniently affording a diverse range of functional polymers. © 2018 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available Stock e-exchange prices forecasting is an important financial problem that is receiving increasing attention. This study proposes a novel three-stage nonlinear ensemble model. In the proposed model, three different types of neural-network based models, i.e. Elman network, generalized regression neural network (GRNN and wavelet neural network (WNN are constructed by three non-overlapping training sets and are further optimized by improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO. Finally, a neural-network-based nonlinear meta-model is generated by learning three neural-network based models through support vector machines (SVM neural network. The superiority of the proposed approach lies in its flexibility to account for potentially complex nonlinear relationships. Three daily stock indices time series are used for validating the forecasting model. Empirical results suggest the ensemble ANNs-PSO-GA approach can significantly improve the prediction performance over other individual models and linear combination models listed in this study.

    2013-01-01

    Based on the life cycle cost (LCC) approach, this paper presents an integral mathematical model and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm for the heating system planning (HSP) problem. The proposed mathematical model minimizes the cost of heating system as the objective for a given life cycle time. For the particularity of HSP problem, the general particle swarm optimization algorithm was improved. An actual case study was calculated to check its feasibility in practical use. The results show that the improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) algorithm can more preferably solve the HSP problem than PSO algorithm. Moreover, the results also present the potential to provide useful information when making decisions in the practical planning process. Therefore, it is believed that if this approach is applied correctly and in combination with other elements, it can become a powerful and effective optimization tool for HSP problem.

  19. British standard (BS) 5750--quality assurance?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pratt, D J

    1995-04-01

    BS5750 is the British Standard on "Quality Systems". Its equivalent in European Standards is EN29000 and in the International Standards Organisation ISO9000. This paper points out that these standards lay down formalised procedures and require documentation but do not ipso facto lead to quality assurance. The author points to the Japanese post-war industrial success as being an example of Total Quality Management within the framework provided by the philosophy of Dr. W. Edwards Deming (1988 and 1993). This philosophy on the management of "systems" to provide high quality products and services is briefly outlined. The author argues that improvement in prosthetic and orthotic services will not be reached through implementation of BS5750 but rather through radical rethinking and the adoption and application of the Deming philosophy.

  20. π-face donation from the aromatic N-substituent of N-heterocyclic carbene ligands to metal and its role in catalysis

    KAUST Repository

    Credendino, Raffaele

    2012-05-16

    In this work, we calculate the redox potential in a series of Ir and Ru complexes bearing a N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligand presenting different Y groups in the para position of the aromatic N-substituent. The calculated redox potentials excellently correlate with the experimental ΔE 1/2 potentials, offering a handle to rationalize the experimental findings. Analysis of the HOMO of the complexes before oxidation suggests that electron-donating Y groups destabilize the metal centered HOMO. Energy decomposition of the metal-NHC interaction indicates that electron-donating Y groups reinforce this interaction in the oxidized complexes. Analysis of the electron density in the reduced and oxidized states of representative complexes indicates a clear donation from the C ipso of the N-substituents to an empty d orbital on the metal. In case of the Ru complexes, this mechanism involves the Ru-alkylidene moiety. All of these results suggest that electron-donating Y groups render the aromatic N-substituent able to donate more density to electron-deficient metals through the C ipso atom. This conclusion suggests that electron-donating Y groups could stabilize higher oxidation states during catalysis. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effect of differently donating Y groups in model reactions of Ru-catalyzed olefin metathesis and Pd-catalyzed C-C cross-coupling. Consistent with the experimental results, calculations indicate an easier reaction pathway if the N-substituent of the NHC ligand presents an electron-donating Y group. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

  2. Restrictive concept of surrogacy in the draft text of the Civil Code of Serbia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bordaš Bernadet I.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The working draft of the Civil Code of Serbia, which was published in June 2015, includes model-provisions on surrogate motherhood, which is, at present, expressly prohibited by law. The paper gives a survey of the proposed provisions and examines particularly those that define which persons can conclude a contract on surrogacy. By limiting this right to persons holding the nationality of Serbia, or to these nationals and persons residing in the territory of Serbia for at least three (five years the legislator wish to avoid reproductive tourism. Surrogate mothering with cross-border effects gives rise to complicated legal problems as regards the definition and recognition of legal parentage of the intended parents both in the countries in which the surrogate mother gives birth to the child, as well as in countries in which the intended parents wish to live with their child. The restrictive concept which retains surrogate mothering within the borders of the domestic state and between domestic nationals disables outgoing cases of surrogate motherhood, but it is not quite true for persons who are not citizens of Serbia, but living on its territory. For these reasons the paper critically examines these limitations in the proposals, and indicates that the incoming cases of surrogate motherhood cannot be prevented due to the free movement of people. The paper also provides analysis of the legal issues of the incoming cases of surrogate motherhood, and suggests solution for them if in the future Civil Code the proposed ipso jure legal parenthood of intended parents will be adopted. With ipso jure legal parenthood of a child who is born to a surrogate mother abroad there is no need to restrict surrogacy cases to nationals of Serbia or to foreigners domiciled in Serbia for three (five years minimum.

  3. NMR analysis of t-butyl-catalyzed deuterium exchange at unactivated arene localities.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stack, Douglas E; Eastman, Rachel

    2016-10-01

    Regioselective labelling of arene rings via electrophilic exchange is often dictated by the electronic environment caused by substituents present on the aromatic system. Previously, we observed the presence of a t-butyl group, either covalently bond or added as an external reagent, could impart deuterium exchange to the unactivated, C1-position of estrone. Here, we provide nuclear magnetic resonance analysis of this exchange in a solvent system composed of 50:50 trifluoroacetic acid and D 2 O with either 2-t-butylestrone or estrone in the presence of t-butyl alcohol has shed insights into the mechanism of this t-butyl-catalyzed exchange. Fast exchange of the t-butyl group concurrent with the gradual reduction of the H1 proton signal in both systems suggest a mechanism involving ipso attack of the t-butyl position by deuterium. The reversible addition/elimination of the t-butyl group activates the H1 proton towards exchange by a mechanism of t-butyl incorporation, H1 activation and exchange, followed by eventual t-butyl elimination. Density functional calculations are consistent with the observation of fast t-butyl exchange concurrent with slower H1 exchange. The σ-complex resulting from ipso attack of deuterium at the t-butyl carbon was 6.6 kcal/mol lower in energy than that of the σ-complex resulting from deuterium attack at C1. A better understanding of the t-butyl-catalyzed exchange could help in the design of labelling recipes for other phenolic metabolites. Copyright © 2016 The Authors.

    Highlights: • Codeine was completely removed in 30 min under irradiated UV-A/TiO{sub 2}. • Codeine was mineralized in 90 min with near complete N conversion to NH{sub 4}{sup +} and NO{sub 3}{sup −}. • Morphine was authenticated and four others were identified as intermediates. • Degradation proceeded via ipso-substitution and hydroxylation of the aromatic ring. - Abstract: This study investigated the photocatalytic degradation of codeine by UV-irradiated TiO{sub 2}. The degradation kinetics was determined under varied conditions including the TiO{sub 2} loading, codeine concentration, and pH. Codeine and several reaction intermediates including morphine were identified and tracked during degradation using HPLC/MS–MS technique, along with TOC and IC measurements. Specifically, removal of 100 μg/L of spike codeine was complete in 3 min by contact with a 0.1 g/L suspension of TiO{sub 2} under UV irradiation at pH 7. The degradation kinetics of codeine was first-order with respect to both the catalyst TiO{sub 2} and the reactant codeine, with enhanced reaction rates with increasing pH up to pH 9. Mineralization of codeine was possible upon prolonged contact; near complete mineralization of 10 mg/L of codeine was achieved in 90 min with 0.1 g/L TiO{sub 2} under irradiation at pH 5, during which the organic nitrogen was converted to NH{sub 3}-N (74%) and NO{sub 3}-N (22%). Based on the identified intermediates, two degradation pathways were proposed of which one involved ipso-substitution followed by cleavage of the aromatic ring and another involved repeated hydroxylation of the codeine molecule followed by its fragmentation.
