    The Principality of Monaco's population characteristics, history, government, political situation, economy, and foreign affairs were briefly described. Monaco, a constitutional monarchy, covers an area of only .6 of a square mile. It is situated on the Mediterranean coast and is surrounded by France on 3 sides. The country was founded as a colony of Genoa, Italy, in 1215, and since 1419, it has been ruled by the House of Grimaldi, except for a brief period of time when the country was under the rule of France. Monaco and France have close ties which have been confirmed by a series of treaties beginning in 1918. In accordance with these treaties, France recognizes the sovereignity of Monaco, and Monaco agrees to exercise its rights only in so far as they accord with French political, military, naval, and economic interests. The monarch was an absolute ruler until 1911 when the constitutional monarchy was established. In 1962, a new constitution was adopted. Under the new constitution, the monarch, or prince of Monaco, shares power with an 18-member elected ledgislative body, the National Council. The Council votes on the budget and endorses laws put forth by the monarch. The executive branch consists of 1) the prince as chief of state; 2) a minister of state, who is a French citizen, appointed by the prince from a list of 3 candidates put forth by the French Government; and 3) a 3-member cabinet. Currently the chief of state is Prince Rainier III, and the minister of state is Jean Herly. The country has a population of 27,000 and an annual population growth rate of 0.9%. The population is 47% French, 16% Italian, and 16% Monegasque. 95% of the inhabitants are Roman Catholic, and French is the official language. School is compulsory between the ages of 6-16 years, and the literacy rate is 100%. The country is an elite tourist center. Its popularity is due, in part, to the casino, which was established in Monaco in 1856. The casino which once was the country's major

    Grimaldi, Albert II Prince

    2006-01-01

    The importance of the protection of the marine environment for sustainable development and economy of coastal countries, like Monaco, is well known. Sadly, this environment has been under continuous threats from development, tourism, urbanisation and demographic pressure. The semi-enclosed Mediterranean sea is challenged by new pollutant cocktails, problems of fresh water management, over-fishing, and now increasingly climate change impacts. Monaco has a long history in the investigation of the marine environment. Prince Albert I, was one of the pioneers in oceanographic exploration, organizer of European oceanographic research and founder of several international organizations including the Musee Oceanographique. The International Atomic Energy Agency established in 1961 its Marine Environment Laboratory in Monaco, the only marine laboratory in the United Nations system. More than 40 years ago the IAEA joined forces with the Grimaldi family and several interested governments to establish the Marine Environment Laboratory in Monaco. Their first purpose-built facilities, dedicated to marine research, launched a new era in the investigation of the marine environment using radioactive and stable isotopes as tracers for better understanding of processes in the oceans and seas, addressing their pollution and promoting wide international cooperation. The Government of the Principality of Monaco has been actively engaged in these developments and is continuously supporting activities of the Monaco Laboratory

Cumple así la Academia una de sus tareas más importantes, cual es la de recordar la vida de los académicos que nos han precedido. Más que tarea es un deber el cual no puede considerarse como un mero acontecimiento social y protocolario sino como un acto con objetivos muy claros.

    Obviamente el más importante es honrar la persona que se recuerda, esto es hacer un reconocimiento público de sus actividades, enalteciendo sus obras y señalando la importancia de sus contribuciones. Otro es poner de presente sus calidades humanas, indicando aspectos de su vida y de sus experiencias que puedan sernas útiles para la solución de los problemas actuales y por lo tanto, sean ejemplos que merezcan seguirse. Otro es considerar en detalle alguna o algunas de sus actividades para así perpetuar la memoria de una obra bien hecha o de un ideal bien cumplido y en esta forma darle un sentido más C<‘lbala lo que es respetar y honrar a una persona.

    La vida de Roberto Serpa fue tan rica en experiencias que me haría interminable si tratara de presentarlas todas, así fuera en forma resumida.

    Dotado de una personalidad sencilla pero vigorosa, afable pero decidida, inteligente siempre y servicial como ninguna, encontró en el ejercicio de la medicina el cauce natural para el torren toso fluir de su energía, dando alivio a muchas gentes a quienes nunca cobraba sus servicios, pero sobre todo tratando de proyectarse al máximun para llevar salud al pueblo colombiano, ya multiplicando su acción desde la cátedra, que sus discípulos recuerdan con especial

    Reilly, C.A.

    2000-01-01

    Miriam P. Finkel, pioneer radiobiologist, passed away on August 20, 1999, at her home in Tucson, AZ. She was born on January 22, 1916, in Chicago to Russian immigrants. She spent much of her youth in Davenport, IA. She returned to Chicago for her college education, and received a B.S. in zoology in 1938 from the University of Chicago. While continuing her formal education in zoology, Miriam served as a laboratory instructor at Wilson Junior College. She received her Ph.D. in 1944 from the University of Chicago. She began her scientific career at the dawning of the nuclear age and seized upon the scientific opportunity present in the new field of radiobiology to be a life-long contributor to the understanding of the biological effects of radiation. Her technical insights and discoveries helped form the foundation for many of the health standards (i.e. permissible levels of internal radionuclide exposure) in use today. She also made a significant contribution to the field of molecular biology. Her isolation of a murine osteogenic sarcoma virus, the Finkel-Biskis-Jenkins or FBJ virus, led to fundamental discoveries in viral-induced tumors and ultimately provided the now universally used molecular biological tool, the FOS gene.

    Full Text Available Gender inequality and the resulting discrimination of women are deeply rooted in history, culture and tradition. It is said to be detrimental to the mental health of women and persists as a debilitating stigma which lowers their dignity and sense of self-worth. Thus, this qualitative research was conducted to underscore the issue of gender equality and women empowerment as core topics in selected speeches of Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago. Findings of the analysis showed that the issue of gender gap in the Philippines was manifested and discussed forthrightly by the senator in her speeches in terms of educational attainment, health and survival, economic participation and opportunity, and political empowerment, all being effectively touched by the senator with the signature wit, eloquence, astuteness and passion she was widely known for; that gender equality and women empowerment were likewise gleaned in the selected speeches, all of which were delivered by Miriam Defensor Santiago with the motive of persuading her audience to espouse the same advocacy, and this she achieved through her unique and distinct style of utilizing the persuasive ability of literature; and, that the implications of the author's advocacy on gender equality and gender empowerment delegated the monumental task upon the shoulders of the Filipino youth, in ways that their thinking will be directly influenced by her advocacy and thus promote within them a sense of urgency to embrace and espouse the same advocacies in order for them to be able to contribute to nation building.

  18. The riverbank, the seashore and the wilderness: Miriam, liberation and prophetic witness against empire

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Allan A. Boesak

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available This article examines the manner and method of resistance against patriarchal power and privilege. Two types of power are contrasted. One is the violent, war-like and hierarchical power of an empire, and the other is the faithful resistance of Israel’s prophets. A further distinction is made between violent male power and non-violent female power. It is argued that Miriam was a prophet of the people and her prophetic witness is an example of the power and outcome of non-violent resistance. Her theology explicitly and specifically praises God not as a warrior. Hers is not a muscular, masculine God whose power seeks to match the power of empire. Her God has a power that through radical love for a slave people and taking sides with the enslaved overcomes the power of the slaveholder. In her theology, Miriam recalls the God of the exodus, who begins the acts of liberation with the women, to whose faithfulness, courage and defiant obedience, the freedom of the people is entrusted. From a feminist perspective it is argued that this style of non-violent, faithful prophetic witness has a greater impact than violent resistance associated with an empire-like power. It is suggested that black liberation theology should adopt this paradigm in its witness of and resistance against oppression.

  19. Dr. Monaco Examines Lab-on a-Chip

    2003-01-01

    Dr. Lisa Monaco, Marshall Space Flight Center's (MSFC's) project scientist for the Lab-on-a-Chip Applications Development (LOCAD) program, examines a lab on a chip. The small dots are actually ports where fluids and chemicals can be mixed or samples can be collected for testing. Tiny channels, only clearly visible under a microscope, form pathways between the ports. Many chemical and biological processes, previously conducted on large pieces of laboratory equipment, can now be performed on these small glass or plastic plates. Monaco and other researchers at MSFC in Huntsville, Alabama, are customizing the chips to be used for many space applications, such as monitoring microbes inside spacecraft and detecting life on other planets. The portable, handheld Lab-on-a Chip Application Development Portable Test System (LOCAD-PTS) made its debut flight aboard Discovery during the STS-116 mission launched December 9, 2006. The system allowed crew members to monitor their environment for problematic contaminants such as yeast, mold, and even E.coli, and salmonella. Once LOCAD-PTS reached the International Space Station (ISS), the Marshall team continued to manage the experiment, monitoring the study from a console in the Payload Operations Center at MSFC. The results of these studies will help NASA researchers refine the technology for future Moon and Mars missions. (NASA/MSFC/D.Stoffer)

    1994-01-01

    Samples of macro algae, Codmium tomentosum (green), Corallina mediterranea (red), Sphaerococcus coronopifolius (red) and Dictyota dichotoma (brown), were collected off Monaco during 1984 and 1988 and analysed for gamma-emitting radionuclides and transuranium elements. Due to the Chernobyl accident, increased radioactivity in the atmosphere at Monaco was recorded on 30 April 1986 with maximal activity concentrations on 2-3 May. The maximal activity concentrations in sea water occurred on 5-6 May and in the algae on 11 May. The decrease of activity concentrations can be described after May 11 as a single exponential relationship, where elimination rates for different radionuclides and different species specific to the environment can be calculated. The elimination rates thus observed correspond to mean residence times between 70 and 370 days corrected for physical decay. The concentration factors were also estimated and the highest values were found for 131 I, 129 Te m , and 110 Ag m and lowest for radiocesium and 140 Ba. The red algae Sphaerococcus coronopifoius showed generally higher concentration factors than green and brown algae. Regarding transuranium elements, a theoretical contribution from the Chernobyl accident can be made but only 242 Cm was detected in the algae above previous levels before the accident, due to the relatively small fallout of transuranics.

    Full Text Available The article analyses the way in which the ever-present theme of the bourgeois marriage in the narrative works of the Argentinean writer Roberto Arlt also features in his short story Noche terrible and in less pronounced form in other accounts included in the volume El Jorobadito. Through a detailed analysis of the discourse representation of the moral and social alienation which the lead character of Noche terrible experiences on the eve of his marriage,it is possible to reconstruct the wearisome processes by which, in the narrative of Roberto Arlt, the cogs of society subordinate individuals and thus preventany from escaping from inexorable class constraints.

    We present a method to reduce this gap and complete the treatment plan, to be made by the re-optimization is performed in the same conditions as the initial treatment plan different from Monaco treatment planning system. The optimization is carried in two steps when performing the inverse calculation for volumetric modulated radiation therapy or intensity modulated radiation therapy in Monaco treatment planning system. This study was the first plan with a complete optimization in two steps by performing all of the treatment plan, without changing the optimized condition from Step 1 to Step 2, a typical sequential optimization performed. At this time, the experiment was carried out with a pencil beam and Monte Carlo algorithm is applied In step 2. We compared initial plan and re-optimized plan with the same optimized conditions. And then evaluated the planning dose by measurement. When performing a re-optimization for the initial treatment plan, the second plan applied the step optimization. When the common optimization again carried out in the same conditions in the initial treatment plan was completed, the result is not the same. From a comparison of the treatment planning system, similar to the dose-volume the histogram showed a similar trend, but exhibit different values that do not satisfy the conditions best optimized dose, dose homogeneity and dose limits. Also showed more than 20% different in comparison dosimetry. If different dose algorithms, this measure is not the same out. The process of performing a number of trial and error, and you get to the ultimate goal of treatment planning optimization process. If carried out to optimize the completion of the initial trust only the treatment plan, we could be made of another treatment plan. The similar treatment plan could not satisfy to optimization results. When you perform re-optimization process, you will need to apply the step optimized conditions, making sure the dose distribution through the optimization

    The purpose of this study is to perform dosimetric validation of Monaco treatment planning system version 5.1. The Elekta VersaHD linear accelerator with high dose rate flattening filter-free photon modes and electron energies was used in this study. The dosimetric output of the new Agility head combined with the FFF photon modes warranted this investigation into the dosimetric accuracy prior to clinical usage. A model of the VersaHD linac was created in Monaco TPS by Elekta using commissioned beam data including percent depth dose curves, beam profiles, and output factors. A variety of 3D conformal fields were created in Monaco TPS on a combined Plastic water/Styrofoam phantom and validated against measurements with a calibrated ion chamber. Some of the parameters varied including source to surface distance, field size, wedges, gantry angle, and depth for all photon and electron energies. In addition, a series of step and shoot IMRT, VMAT test plans, and patient plans on various anatomical sites were verified against measurements on a Delta 4 diode array. The agreement in point dose measurements was within 2% for all photon and electron energies in the homogeneous phantom and within 3% for photon energies in the heterogeneous phantom. The mean ± SD gamma passing rates of IMRT test fields yielded 93.8 ± 4.7% based on 2% dose difference and 2 mm distance-to-agreement criteria. Eight previously treated IMRT patient plans were replanned in Monaco TPS and five measurements on each yielded an average gamma passing rate of 95% with 6.7% confidence limit based on 3%, 3 mm gamma criteria. This investigation on dosimetric validation ensures accuracy of modeling VersaHD linac in Monaco TPS thereby improving patient safety. © 2017 The Authors.

    Purpose: The Monaco treatment planning system (TPS) uses a Monte-Carlo algorithm based dose computation engine to model the photon beams of a linear accelerator. The aim is to perform verification of Monaco TPS beam modeling of a Elekta VersaHD linac with 6MV, 6MV FFF, 10 MV, 10MV FFF, 18MV photon beams and 160 multileaf collimators (MLC) with a projected width of 5-mm at the isocenter. Methods: A series of dosimetric tests were performed to validate Monaco calculated beams including point dose measurement in water with and without heterogeneity and 2-dimensional dose distributions on a Delta4 bi-planar diode dosimeter array (Scandidos, Uppsala, Sweden). 3D conformal beams of different field sizes, source-to-surface distances, wedges, and gantry angles were delivered onto a phantom consisting of several plastic water and Styrofoam slabs. Point dose measurements were verified with a PTW 31013 Semiflex 0.3 cc ionization chamber (PTW, Freiburg, Germany). In addition, 8 step and shoot intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc radiotherapy (VMAT) beams included in the Monaco TPS commissioning suite were verified against measurements on Delta4 to test and fine tune parameters in the beam model. IMRT verification was computed using gamma analysis with dose difference and distance-to-agreement criteria of 3%/3mm with a dose threshold of 10%. Results: Point dose measurements agreed within 2% in the homogeneous phantom and within 3% in the heterogeneous phantom for all photon energies. IMRT beams yielded a passing percentage of 99.1±1.1% in the gamma analysis which is well above the institutional passing threshold of 90%. Conclusion: Monaco TPS commissioning was successfully performed for all the photon energies on the Elekta VersaHD linac prior to clinical usage.

  6. Monaco and film dosimetry of 3D CRT, IMRT and VMAT cases in a realistic pelvic prosthetic phantom

    Ade, Nicholas; du Plessis, F. C. P.

    2018-04-01

    The dosimetry of patients with metallic hip implants during irradiation of pelvic lesions is challenging due to dose distortions caused by implants. This work presents a dosimetric comparison of various multi-field photon-beam dose distributions in the presence of unilateral hip titanium prosthesis (UHTiP) embedded in a unique pelvic phantom made out of water-equivalent nylon slices. The impact of the UHTiP on the accuracy of dose calculations from a Monaco TPS (treatment planning system) using the X-ray voxel Monte Carlo (XVMC) algorithm was benchmarked against measured dose data using Gafchromic EBT3 film. Multi-field beam arrangements including a 4-field box, 5-field 3DCRT (three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy), 6-field IMRT (intensity modulated radiation therapy) and a single-arc VMAT (volumetric modulated arc therapy) plan were set up for 6 MV and 15 MV beams. These plans were generated for the pelvic phantom that contains the prosthesis with film inserted. Compared to Monaco TPS dose calculations, film measurements showed enhanced dose in the prosthesis which was not predicted by Monaco due to its limitation in relative density assignment. The enhanced prosthesis dose increased with increase in beam energy and decreased with the complexity of the treatment plans, with VMAT giving the least escalated dose. The dose increased between 5% and 19% for 6 MV and between 6% and 21% for 15 MV. A gamma index analysis showed that 70-92% of dose points (excluding the prosthesis) were within 3% discrepancy. Increasing the number of treatment fields increases target dose coverage and improves the agreement between film and Monaco. When the relative electron density (RED) in the prosthesis was varied between 3.72 and 15 the dose discrepancy between film and Monaco increased from 30% to 57% for 6 MV and from 30% to 50% for 15 MV. The study indicates that beam weights for fields that pass through the prosthesis should be minimised and its RED must be correct for

    Full Text Available In this article Roberto Balzani, the mayor of Forlì, remembers Roberto Ruffilli, 25 years after his murder. The remembrance reconstructs the steps of his academic career and of his political commitment. Ruffilli graduated at the Catholic University of Milan; his researches in contemporary history placed him in an original position if compared with the Italian studies of the time. The constant attention towards the history of administration and the transformations of the state is the basis on which Ruffilli built his proposals concerning the reform of the insitutional and political system. Balzani concludes the article by affirming that the problems of today aren't any different, that is why Ruffilli's proposals still demonstrate their modernity.

    Full Text Available The aim of this work, taking into account the last critical lesson of C.A. Madrignani, is to reflect upon how Sicily has become, through literature, a metaphor of the national political condition, and how it paradigmatically represents the inability of Italy to change. More precisely its purpose is to investigate the contribution to the construction of national identity of authors like F. De Roberto and G. Tommasi di Lampedusa, whose “anti-historical” works are characterized by a desecrating description (sometimes even polemical of the unification process of Italy. Even this illusory contradiction is part of the dimension referred to by Madrignani as the Sicily effect on Italian literature. In Viceré and Imperio (and even in the war novellas De Roberto bluntly depicts Italian history as a fierce fight for power, where human egoism prevails, which, according to a pessimistic philosophy, denies any affirmation of positive values.

  15. Un “libro terribile”, L’Imperio di De Roberto tra disincanto politico e nichilismo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gianfranco Ferraro

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available In the correspondence with his mother, Federico De Roberto defined its own novel L’Imperio as a “a terrible book”. Published in 1929, when the Sicilian writer was not longer alive, this incomplete novel concluded the project of literary triptych including the novels L’Illusione and I Viceré. What could arouse dismay and abhorrence in its readers was the nihilistic outcome of the plot. In order to explain it, the authors of the present paper show how the political disillusionment, embodied in the novel by the figure of the young journalist Federico Ranaldi, discloses for De Roberto the horizon of European nihilism. Being symbolic of the Italian generation born after the Unification, Ranaldi loses his political ideals when he understands that the politicians have no faith and are no longer right. Disgusted by the conduct of Consalvo Uzeda di Francalanza, the last heir of the ancient “viceroys” of Sicily, now the minister of the Kingdom, Ranaldi is overwhelmed by a radical, pessimistic vision of the world. Thus it is evident that De Roberto was extremely influenced by such philosophers as Giacomo Leopardi, Arthur Schopenhauer and Eduard von Hartmann.

    Alzheimer disease (AD) and other related dementia represent a major challenge for health care systems within the aging population. It is therefore important to develop better instruments for assessing disease severity and disease progression to optimize patient's care and support to care providers, and also provide better tools for clinical research. In this area, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are of particular interest. Such techniques enable accurate and standardized assessments of patients' performance and actions in real time and real life situations. The aim of this article is to provide basic recommendation concerning the development and the use of ICT for Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. During he ICT and Mental Health workshop (CTAD meeting held in Monaco on the 30th October 2012) an expert panel was set up to prepare the first recommendations for the use of ICT in dementia research. The expert panel included geriatrician, epidemiologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, psychologist, ICT engineers, representatives from the industry and patient association. The recommendations are divided into three sections corresponding to 1/ the clinical targets of interest for the use of ICT, 2/ the conditions, the type of sensors and the outputs (scores) that could be used and obtained, 3/ finally the last section concerns specifically the use of ICT within clinical trials.

    2016-01-01

    Purpose: To verify experimentally the accuracy of Monaco (Elekta) electron Monte Carlo (eMC) algorithm to calculate small field size depth doses, monitor units and isodose distributions. Methods: Beam modeling of eMC algorithm was performed for electron energies of 6, 9, 12 15 and 18 Mev for a Elekta Infinity Linac and all available ( 6, 10, 14 20 and 25 cone) applicator sizes. Electron cutouts of incrementally smaller field sizes (20, 40, 60 and 80% blocked from open cone) were fabricated. Dose calculation was performed using a grid size smaller than one-tenth of the R_8_0_–_2_0 electron distal falloff distance and number of particle histories was set at 500,000 per cm"2. Percent depth dose scans and beam profiles at dmax, d_9_0 and d_8_0 depths were measured for each cutout and energy with Wellhoffer (IBA) Blue Phantom"2 scanning system and compared against eMC calculated doses. Results: The measured dose and output factors of incrementally reduced cutout sizes (to 3cm diameter) agreed with eMC calculated doses within ± 2.5%. The profile comparisons at dmax, d_9_0 and d_8_0 depths and percent depth doses at reduced field sizes agreed within 2.5% or 2mm. Conclusion: Our results indicate that the Monaco eMC algorithm can accurately predict depth doses, isodose distributions, and monitor units in homogeneous water phantom for field sizes as small as 3.0 cm diameter for energies in the 6 to 18 MeV range at 100 cm SSD. Consequently, the old rule of thumb to approximate limiting cutout size for an electron field determined by the lateral scatter equilibrium (E (MeV)/2.5 in centimeters of water) does not apply to Monaco eMC algorithm.

    Purpose: Deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) is used for left-sided breast radiotherapy to spare the heart and lung. The magnitude of sparing has been shown to be significant. Monte Carlo, furthermore, has the potential to calculate most accurately the dose in the heterogeneous lung medium at the interface with the lung wall. The lung dose was investigated in Monaco to determine the level of sparing relative to that calculated in Pinnacle{sup 3}. Methods: Five patients undergoing DIBH radiotherapy on an Elekta Versa HD linear accelerator in conjunction with the Catalyst C-RAD surface imaging system were planned using Phillips Pinnacle{sup 3}. Free breathing plans were also created to clinically assure a benefit. Both plans were re-calculated in Monaco to determine if there were any significant differences. The mean heart dose, mean left lung, and mean total lung dose were compared in addition to the V20 for left and both lungs. Dose was calculated as dose to medium as well as dose to water with a statistical precision of 0.7%. Results: Mean lung dose was significantly different (p < 0.003) between the two calculations for both DIBH (11.6% higher in Monaco) and free breathing (14.2% higher in Monaco). V20 was also higher in Monaco (p < 0.05) for DIBH (5.7% higher) and free breathing (4.9% higher). The mean heart dose was not significantly different between the dose calculations for either DIBH or free breathing. Results were no more than 0.1% different when calculated as dose to water. Conclusion: The use of Monte Carlo can provide insight on the lung dose for both free breathing and DIBH techniques for whole breast irradiation. While the sparing (dose reductions with DIBH as compared to free breathing) is equivalent for either planning system, the lung doses themselves are higher when calculated with Monaco.

  6. Work together. Message of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco

    On the occasion of the tenth special session of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme, the Global Ministerial Environment Forum will be held in Monaco for the first time, from 20 February to 22 February 2008. This is a recognition of the actions carried out by the Principality in the field of the Environment. Environmental policy is central to all our concerns. It is present in every aspect of the economic, social and cultural life of the Principality. One of the main themes of this meeting will be 'Globalization and the environment - mobilizing finance to meet the climate change challenge'. It is only by mobilizing everyone, public and private partners alike, at the local and international level, that we can bring about solutions to safeguard the future of our planet. To meet this challenge, we have to work together to frame our responses to the problems posed. Unilateral declarations will not settle the issue. It is the whole planet that is under threat. One of the main objectives of this debate, in my opinion, will be to show that public finances and the private financial sector have a joint role to play in promoting sustainable development. The costs of restoring emissions to their current level in 2030 have been estimated by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change it more than 200 billion dollars a year. State budgets should be greatly increased. A significant part of the investment envisaged for the energy generation sector should be devoted to renewable energy sources. Additional investments will be needed for the research and development of new technologies. The consequent budget investment will be futile, however, unless private investment sources are strengthened. There is no longer any room for conflict between the ideas of the environment and economic development. Today the stakes are high, and every branch of the economy has to contribute to achieving this fresh goal, combining technological innovation and

    Purpose: Treatment plans for the MR-linac, calculated in Monaco v5.19, include direct simulation of the effects of the 1.5T B{sub 0}-field. We tested the feasibility of using a collapsed-cone (CC) algorithm in Oncentra, which does not account for effects of the B{sub 0}-field, as a fast online, independent 3D check of dose calculations. Methods: Treatment plans for six patients were generated in Monaco with a 6 MV FFF beam and the B{sub 0}-field. All plans were recalculated with a CC model of the same beam. Plans for the same patients were also generated in Monaco without the B{sub 0}-field. The mean dose (Dmean) and doses to 10% (D10%) and 90% (D90%) of the volume were determined, as percentages of the prescribed dose, for target volumes and OARs in each calculated dose distribution. Student’s t-tests between paired parameters from Monaco plans and corresponding CC calculations were performed. Results: Figure 1 shows an example of the difference between dose distributions calculated in Monaco, with the B{sub 0}-field, and the CC algorithm. Figure 2 shows distributions of (absolute) difference between parameters for Monaco plans, with the B{sub 0}-field, and CC calculations. The Dmean and D90% values for the CTVs and PTVs were significantly different, but differences in dose distributions arose predominantly at the edges of the target volumes. Inclusion of the B{sub 0}-field had little effect on agreement of the Dmean values, as illustrated by Figure 3, nor on agreement of the D10% and D90% values. Conclusion: Dose distributions recalculated with a CC algorithm show good agreement with those calculated with Monaco, for plans both with and without the B{sub 0}-field, indicating that the CC algorithm could be used to check online treatment planning for the MRlinac. Agreement for a wider range of treatment sites, and the feasibility of using the γ-test as a simple pass/fail criterion, will be investigated.

    Purpose: Because of statistical noise in Monte Carlo dose calculations, effective point doses may not be accurate. Volume spheres are useful for evaluating dose in Monte Carlo plans, which have an inherent statistical uncertainty.We use a user-defined sphere volume instead of a point, take sphere sampling around effective point make the dose statistics to decrease the stochastic errors. Methods: Direct dose measurements were made using a 0.125cc Semiflex ion chamber (IC) 31010 isocentrically placed in the center of a homogeneous Cylindric sliced RW3 phantom (PTW, Germany).In the scanned CT phantom series the sensitive volume length of the IC (6.5mm) were delineated and defined the isocenter as the simulation effective points. All beams were simulated in Monaco in accordance to the measured model. In our simulation using 2mm voxels calculation grid spacing and choose calculate dose to medium and request the relative standard deviation ≤0.5%. Taking three different assigned IC over densities (air electron density(ED) as 0.01g/cm3 default CT scanned ED and Esophageal lumen ED 0.21g/cm3) were tested at different sampling sphere radius (2.5, 2, 1.5 and 1 mm) statistics dose were compared with the measured does. Results: The results show that in the Monaco TPS for the IC using Esophageal lumen ED 0.21g/cm3 and sampling sphere radius 1.5mm the statistical value is the best accordance with the measured value, the absolute average percentage deviation is 0.49%. And when the IC using air electron density(ED) as 0.01g/cm3 and default CT scanned EDthe recommented statistical sampling sphere radius is 2.5mm, the percentage deviation are 0.61% and 0.70%, respectivly. Conclusion: In Monaco treatment planning system for the ionization chamber 31010 recommend air cavity using ED 0.21g/cm3 and sampling 1.5mm sphere volume instead of a point dose to decrease the stochastic errors.

    Full Text Available This article does a study approach to the black humour genre in the written work of Roberto Fontanarrosa, an Argentine writer very famous in Latin American, in reference to the case Boogie the oily comic. In Boogie we observe a use of humor based on a naked, open and highly criticism toward to the liquid contemporary culture through the creation of a protagonist who reflects in itself all vices and evils of society. As methodology, this paper does a literature review and qualitative content analysis taking as reference ten comics of Boogie; with this material this article analyzes connotative and denotative messages. In conclusion this paper infers that a comic can serve as a vehicle to express reality by mean of absurdity and irony. Consequently, Boogie shows the culture of tolerance that human being has taken in front of the deformation values of today’s world.

    Full Text Available The article explores the relationship between fathers and children in Roberto Bolaño's narrative works. To do so, it is shown how that relationship, both in Bolaño's novels and short stories, is intrinsically linked to the theme of the exile. Once the connection between exile and orphanhood is shown, the article tries to offer an insight of the relationship fathers-children in Bolaño's works and to focus on some key characters. Therefore, specific novels and short stories are analyzed in depth: in particular the article examines the characters and the narrative strategies of Los Detectives Salvajes, 2666 and two short stories contained in Putas Asesinas.

    La reunión que hoy nos congrega en esta sesión conjunta tiene por objeto conmemorar una importante efemérides de la medicina universal y tributar homenaje a la memoria de un excepcional galeno de nuestra patria.

    Me permitiré leer una breve comunicación que el 8 de octubre del año pasado dirigí al Presidente de nuestra Academia, pues resume el motivo central de esta ceremonia:
    “El año próximo venidero se cumplen ochenta de la trascendental comunicación del Dr. Roberto Franco sobre una epidemia febril que estudió en las Minas de Muzo.
    Tal investigación constituye uno de los hitos más importantes de la medicina tropical. Las novedosas conclusiones del Dr. Franco, basadas en un juicioso estudio de campo y en una sagaz observación clínica y epidemiológica, fueron puestas en duda y aún negadas en su época. Sólo el tiempo y las investigaciones posteriores dieron razón a su notable afirmación de la existencia de la fiebre amarilla de los bosques.

    Me parece que sería justo y oportuno que la Academia celebre tal aniversario de manera apropiada y que se aproveche la ocasión para exaltar la memoria del que fue, sin duda, una de las figuras cimeras de la medicina nacional”.
    Tanto la Academia como nuestra Sociedad histórica, a las que me honro en pertenecer, acogieron favorablemente la sugerencia. Me enaltece sobremanera ser yo quien esta noche las representa.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the seldom studied poetry of Roberto Bolaño, using "La Universidad Desconocida", the exhaustive compilation published posthumously in 2007. Although Bolaño received wide recognition and many awards for his novels, he defined himself as a poet. In his poetry, we find the same topics and tendencies that he developed in the characters and plots of his narratives. A prime example is "Los detectives salvajes", a novel about a group of young rebel poets in the Mexico of the seventies. Bolaño’s poet characters, as well as his travels, exiles and criticisms of the literary establishment, take on a new light when compared alongside his poetry. this article explores the modes of poetic production as understood by Bolaño, as a way of life outside universities, the literary canon, and any other institutional networks. Instead, his poetic production is marked by the figure of Arthur Rimbaud as the archetype of the cursed poet.

    Full Text Available Il notevole incremento di studi critici sulla Poetica Cognitiva sta riscattandola dall’accusa di offrire soltanto una nuova e seducente terminologia, guadagnandole invece la dignità di metodologia scientifica. Mosso dall’interesse che il fenomeno della integrazione concettuale (blending suscita, il mio intervento propone una lettura del film La vita è bella di Roberto Benigni proprio in funzione del suo organizzarsi intorno a un blending che ne sostiene l’intero impianto ideativo. Il film è stato molto criticato, oltre che per un certo impaccio tecnico nella messa in scena, per il fatto di condurre un racconto di morte e sterminio attraverso un punto di vista comico. Attraverso l’applicazione del blending, insieme ad altri strumenti di analisi classica, cercherò di dimostrare come la strutturazione del racconto intorno alla duplice contaminazione di realtà e fantasia, comico e tragico, lo sottrae dal rischio di scivolare nel melodramma e nel patetismo, mantenendo alta l’empatia dello spettatore. La mia lettura sottolinea dunque come tutto il film sia costruito su un continuo blending, e ne evidenzia le modalità di realizzazione, dimostrando, attraverso un’opera ampiamente nota e di vasto consenso, come le scienze cognitive possano offrire validi strumenti di analisi che precisano pregresse intuizioni critiche e illuminano zone dell’opera d’arte rimaste in ombra o confinate alla valutazione estetica.

    ABSTRACT: One of the minor works of cardinal Roberto Bellarmino, De Gemitu Columbae sive De Bono lacrymarum (1617 is composed of three books: the first is dedicated to the "need for moans"; the second and third, respectively, to the sources and the fruits of the "tears". In investigating the origin of the moan, after quoting Isaiah and Nahum, the Author insists on a verse, particularly evocative, taken from the Song of Songs (6, 9. Therefore, the moan is not referred only to the animal in itself, but also to the whole Church: the work in question seems to be more connected to the textures of a "political theology" than to the classic counter-reformed edification readings. The present contribution aims to examine the relationships between De gemitu and the jus publicum ecclesiasticum, not only externum but also - and above all - internum. And, by this way, the highly debated theme of belonging to the Ecclesia, faced by the great Counter-reform theorist through the images of the dove and the chant.

    Camelia Raghinaru

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available Starting from Agamben’s theories of state of exception, and sovereignty and subalternity, this article looks at Roberto Bolaño’s 2004 novel, 2666, as a critique of neoliberal capitalism, where the law is predicated on violence and exploitation of surplus humanity—in this case, the poor female maquiladora workers at the U.S./Mexico border. Narco-trafficking and misogyny are symptomatic of a juridical and economic order that revolves around exploitation as central to the workings of transnational capitalism. As the boundary between legality and illegality breaks down, an aporetic state of exception forms, in which the transnational corporation acts as sovereign power by introducing a space of exception in the law. This force of law without law obscures the politicization of bare life, while maintaining traditional means of exploitation. The maquiladora workers emerge as docile bodies imprinted by the biopolitical power of sovereign financial capital. Powerless victims of overwork, displacement, destitution, and ultimately rape and slaughter, they objectify the violence of low wage labour in the global exchange of power and capital.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mark Piccini

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available The Chilean author Roberto Bolańo cultivated a contentious (and contradictory attitude to literature, believing that it conceals the fear and self-interest that coordinates its meaningfulness. For Bolańo, great writers should face the abyss of meaninglessness while standing tall, a directive which prohibits drawing conclusions that might ultimately be elevated to the level of fact. Instead, Bolańo commits to a category of truth that cannot be described by inscribing its contingent effects in his writing through what I will call his ‘antiliterature.’ Acknowledging this inaccessible truth, Bolańo’s writing reveals an aversion to all-encompassing literary forms that can be seen in the same light as Jacques Lacan’s term ‘antiphilosophy,’ describing the French psychoanalyst’s position against philosophy. Just as Lacanian antiphilosophy continues to contribute to twenty-first-century philosophical critiques, Bolańo’s antiliterature renders possible novel literary trajectories. Bolańo’s 2009 novel 2666 exemplifies his antiliterary approach, subverting the literary genre of crime fiction by refusing to supply an object to fulfil the reader’s desire for closure and by universalising guilt.

  9. Radiochemical Procedures Used at Iaea-Ilmr Monaco for Measuring Artificial Radionuclides Resulting from the Chernobyl Accident

    Ballestra, S.; Gastaud, J.; Lopez, J. J.

    The Chernobyl accident which occurred on 26 April 1986 resulted in relatively high levels of radioactive fallout over the major part of Europe. Air filter and precipitation samples enabled us to follow the contamination from the accident. In addition contamination was also monitored in selected environmental samples such as seaweeds, sea water, sediment, soil, suspended matter and biological material from the Mediterranean. All samples were counted on Ge(Li) or Ge(HP) detectors to determine the type and quantity of gamma emitting radionuclides and plutonium, americium and curium isotopes were separated and measured using radiochemical techniques and alpha counting. Increased atmospheric radioactivity from the Chernobyl accident was first detected by observing increased activity levels on air filters taken on April 30, 1986, with maximum activities occurring during 1-3 May. Most of the radionuclides initially measured were short-lived fission products. Cs-137 was one of the predominant isotope in the fallout debris and its deposition at Monaco due to Chernobyl was estimated to be around 1400 Bq m-2, which represents 25-40% of the integrated fallout at this latitude. The deposition of Pu-239+240 was much smaller and was estimated to be around 10 mBq m-2 or only 0.1% of the total deposition from nuclear weapon testing.

    Full Text Available Si bien el término parodia ha sido estudiado y signado como un género perdido de la antigüedad, la literatura contemporánea lo vuelve un procedimiento creativo gracias a una de sus aristas más interesantes: la de reiterar. En una novela determinante para su proyecto literario global, Estrella distante (1996, el chileno Roberto Bolaño (1953-2003 parece estar cifrando su obra con esta clave. Es decir, la mencionada novela no sólo estaría contado, en términos textuales, la historia de un piloto de la Fuerza Aérea Chilena llamado Carlos Wieder que, a un tiempo, es un artista y un asesino; sino que en términos transtextuales, y según la explicación de Bibiano O’Ryan (uno de los personajes, el apellido Wieder estaría asociado a una cierta recurrencia en la literatura de Bolaño: la de la parodia como eje mismo, que es simultáneamente burla y reiteración. Wieder, wider, weiden: decir de nuevo, en contra y de manera perversa. La asociación fonética es, asimismo, asociación creativa. Para Bolaño, el espacio de la parodia le permite reiterar, refutar y pervertir ciertos actos que acometen sus personajes, todos ellos ubicados en una suerte de “eterno retorno” que los hace, una y otra vez, asesinar, escribir, hacer el amor, leer, hablar, pensar. Se propone aquí, una hipótesis a comprobar: sólo en el volver a contar, en la repetición de un texto en otro contexto, en la parodia es como realmente se pueden apreciar los énfasis y subrayados que Bolaño desea hacer notorios en su propuesta literaria. Even though the term parody has been studied and identified as a lost genre from older times, contemporary literature has turned it into a creative procedure thanks to one of its most interesting facets: reiteration. In a determinant novel for his global literary project: Estrella distante (1996, the Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño (1953-2003 seems to encode his work in this key. In other words, the novel would not only narrate, in

    Full Text Available Natural de Tasco, Boyacá, Carlos Roberto Silva Mojica recibió el grado de médico en la Universidad Nacional en 1946. Su tesis de grado, “Sufrimiento fetal” hacía presagiar que su especialidad sería la misma de su tío Carlos Julio Mojica, profesor de Clínica Obstétrica en el Instituto Materno Infantil. En efecto, Silva Mojica inició allí su periplo como especialista y como docente de la Facultad de Medicina de la Nacional. En 1945, un grupo conformado por profesores de las universidades Nacional y Javeriana dio inicio al estudio formal de los procedimientos psicosomáticos de analgesia obstétrica preconizados desde 1933 en Inglaterra por Grantly Dick Read a través de su libro Nacimiento sin temor. Principios y práctica del parto sin dolor. De ese grupo sobresalió el doctor Silva Mojica, pues de todos fue el más denodado defensor y divulgador del llamado “parto psicoprofíláctico”. En 1955, durante el Primer Seminario de Educación Médica y por iniciativa suya, entre las recomendaciones relacionadas con la cátedra de Obstetricia se acogió la siguiente: “Recalcar al estudiante y al personal docente la necesidad de la preparación psicológica, o mejor psicoprofiláctica, en su doble aspecto educativo y afectivo, para lograr la colaboración activa y apacible de la parturienta en losprocesos de su parto”. Liderado por Silva Mojica, en 1956 se creó, con fines de investigación, el “Equipo Médico de Estudios Psicofisicos de Analgesia Obstétrica (Emesfao”, que mantuvo vigente el interés por el enfoque psicoanalítico de la obstetricia. Desde un comienzo, Emesfao fijó una posición ecléctica ante la diversidad de criterios respecto a estos sistemas, y puso en práctica un método psicoprofiláctico integrado con elementos de las principales escuelas, cuya diferencia estribaba en la interpretación neurofisiológica y psicológica de la indolorización del parto. Dado que la psicoprofilaxis obstétrica hab

    Hace exactamente 100 años, señores académicos, Roberto Koch presentó en concisa, lacónica y podríamos decir perfecta comunicación, a la Sociedad de Fisiología de Berlín, la demostración de que la TBC tenía como causa única la proliferación en el organismo vivo, del germen denominado por él Mycobacterium Tuberculosis.

    Esta comunicación que hoy conmemoramos, cambió el curso de la microbiología, y sentó las bases para el desarrollo posterior del tratamiento etiológico de las enfermedades infecciosas. Años más tarde, Koch recibiría el máximo galardón otorgado por Nobel a los grandes benefactores de la humanidad, por este descubrimiento. Sería glorificado por sus
    contemporáneos y por quienes posteriormente hemos tenido el privilegio de ejercer la medicina en el mundo civilizado, así como por quienes padecieron y padecen aún el terrible mal, al ver cercana su curación gracias a los descubrimientos recientes que han permitido derrotar al más temible enemigo de la patología humana: el Bacilo puesto en evidencia
    por este retraído sabio alemán.

    Pero no todo fue gloria y renombre en la vida de Roberto Koch. Vale la pena rememorar a grandes rasgos en este Centenario y ante esta Academia de Medicina Colombiana, algunos de los hechos sobresalientes de la vida de este hombre excepcional, que le dio luz en su época y le sigue dando a la ciencia en general, y que sentó premisas que siguen vigentes en nuestros días a través del postulado que lleva su nombre, ineludibles para quienes quieren demostrar científicamente hechos bacteriológicos.

    Nace el 11 de diciembre de 1843 en la pequeña población de Klausthal en Hanover, y allí transcurre su primera juventud provinciana y sencilla para luego viajar a Gotinga, en cuya universidad estudia medicina, destacándose siempre por su dedicación y método en las asignaturas, recibiendo su doctorado en 1886, a los 23 años, bajo la tutela del Profesor

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available This article is focused on a film by Roberto Rossellini, Stromboli (1949 whose title comes from the island, off the northwest coasts of Sicily, on which the film is set. Given the thematic relevance of borders in the post‐war drama of a foreign refugee who moves to the unknown island with a husband met through the barbed wire of the camp, the article analyzes to what extent this theme is rebounded in the unstable genre of the film. In Stromboli a coexistence of tropoi belonging to different traditions of melodrama can be spotted, tracing back to the theatrical origins of the genre, as detailed in Jean‐Marie Tommaseau´s recent study. But one must take into account, nevertheless, the documentary‐drive that inspires the film, linking it to Rossellini´s approach to the new unmapped reality of the Italian landscape, recently discussed by Angelo Restivo in his essay on Italian cinema during the economic boom. The interplay of these theoretical references in Stromboli can bring to the fore the theme of space and time borders as more relevant than the traditional critical filing of the film as a study of loneliness, together with the other four features made with actress Ingrid Bergman. The compounded analysis results in a melodramatic re‐vision of the film, that can entail the ending shift towards the holy and the sacred often dismissed as improper. The article comments on the film conveying melodrama into a field supposedly outside of its genre concerns.

    Full Text Available Roberto Caldeyro-Barcia nació en Montevideo en 1921, estudió Medicina graduándose como médico cirujano en 1947. Fue aceptado como investigador asociado en el Instituto de Fisiología bajo la supervisión del profesor Hermógenes Álvarez, quien estaba trabajando sobre el efecto de la actividad uterina en el pulso cardiaco fetal durante el parto. La presión amniótica se registró con el uso de un pequeño catéter introducido dentro de la cavidad amniótica, por lo que Caldeyro-Barcia propuso introducir un microcatéter directamente en el músculo uterino para obtener información más específica de la contracción uterina y su efecto sobre la actividad cardiaca fetal. Se observó que la frecuencia cardiaca disminuía en los casos de hipoxia fetal. Dichos descensos fueron llamados DIP I y II. Así, se confirmó que la hipoxia durante el parto tiene una deletérea acción en la oxigenación fetal, lo cual fue registrado y graduado como unidades montevideo. Dos años después, Edward H. Hon, quien trabajaba en la Universidad de Yale, confirmó estos hallazgos, lo que fue el inicio de la monitorización fetal durante el trabajo de parto en todo el mundo. Caldeyro-Barcia fue galardonado por muchas asociaciones académicas internacionales; asimismo fue designado director del Centro Sudamericano de Perinatología y presidente de la Federación Internacional de Ginecología y Obstetricia. Se consideró un amigo de México, país que visitó muchas veces, por lo que tuvo una relación académica muy cercana con Luis Castelazo-Ayala.

    Full Text Available Florida e Boedo são nomes de ruas da cidade de Buenos Aires, com características distintas bem expressivas: Florida era a rua do “ócio distraído”, da boemia da arte gratuita, sem motivações que não fossem estéticas. Boedo era a rua do “tráfego fabril”, situada num bairro onde muitas fábricas estavam instaladas, o que fomentava a agitação das consciências para o levante de uma bandeira subversiva. Das designações topográficas do bairrismo portenho nasceu uma contenda cultural de classes, em que a literatura foi o veio central. A polêmica literária deve ser vista no seu interior, recorrendo-se ao momento histórico em que ocorreu, pois somente com a distância temporal o historiador da literatura pode avaliar o que representou na época e o que significa na contemporaneidade tal controvérsia para a história da literatura argentina. E, ainda assim, manter certa desconfiança, pois o historiador é um pesquisador que muitas vezes recorta acontecimentos e os dota de significado de acordo com suas ideologias; como chama a atenção o historiador da literatura latino-americana Antonio Cornejo Polar (2000. Na conformação dos dois grupos e na localização dos escritores em cada um deles, houve muitas discrepâncias. Castelnuovo, nos diz Adolfo Prieto (2009, declarou que o grupo Boedo não existiu, o que existia era uma literatura de arrabalde. Assim, Prieto mapeia em seu ensaio “Boedo e Florida” algumas esclarecimentos e tentativas de encaixar os escritores em um grupo ou outro. Em uma dessas demonstrações está claro que Roberto Arlt não se localizava em nenhum dos dois grupos.

    Full Text Available The Act A4 refers to Articles 4 and 5 of Directive 91/676 / EEC concerning the protection of waters against pollution caused by nitrates from agricultural sources. The A4 Act applies to farms that have land within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ; it also applies to farms, with or without herds, that participate in measure 214 of the Rural Development Plans. The monitoring was performed in two experimental farms belonging to CREA-FLC. Both monitoring sites are located in  vulnerable areas designated by the Lombardy Region. In the monitoring period MO.NA.CO., the regional standard of reference were the Decrees of the Regional Government DGR5868 / 2007 and DGR2208 / 2011. The average cost attributable to administrative requirements was about € 600 / year / company and was mainly due to a professional agronomist who prepared the Agronomic Utilization Plan (PUA, assisted the farm in preparing its communication, provided advice and informed farm managers on regulatory updates. An informal, not systematic survey made possible to detect that the cost to fulfil the obligations of communication can be very variable depending on the farm’s characteristics (size, production, size of the herd and the type of consultant assisting the breeder (freelancer, association, cooperative. For example, in some cases the cost is based on the area of the farm, in others on the number of animals in the herd; and in other situations, the associations and freelance agronomist apply a flat rate for the compilation of the PUAs which is unaffected by farm characteristics and ranging from a minimum of € 100 / year / company practiced by some farmers’ association to a maximum of € 800 / year / company required by some freelance agronomist. At Baroncina farm the storage capacity of the slurry, during the monitoring period, was not compliant with the law because the volumes produced could not be stocked for 120 days as required by the standard.

    We construct an X-ray spectral model of reprocessing by a torus in an active galactic nucleus (AGN) with the Monte Carlo simulation framework MONACO. Two torus geometries of smooth and clumpy cases are considered and compared. In order to reproduce a Compton shoulder accurately, MONACO includes not only free electron scattering but also bound electron scattering. Raman and Rayleigh scattering are also treated, and scattering cross sections dependent on chemical states of hydrogen and helium are included. Doppler broadening by turbulence velocity can be implemented. Our model gives results consistent with other available models, such as MYTorus, except for differences due to different physical parameters and assumptions. We studied the dependence on torus parameters for a Compton shoulder, and found that a intensity ratio of a Compton shoulder to the line core mainly depends on column density, inclination angle, and metal abundance. For instance, an increase of metal abundance makes a Compton shoulder relatively weak. Also, the shape of a Compton shoulder depends on the column density. Furthermore, these dependences become different between smooth and clumpy cases. Then, we discuss the possibility of ASTRO-H/SXS spectroscopy of Compton shoulders in AGN reflection spectra.

    Full Text Available Burle Marx believed that the landscape´s aesthetic dimension was an essential concept for human life. In Brasil, Burle Marx’s landscapes enrich our thoughts on landscape architecture, often borrowed from international authors. In this context, this article, based on the theoretical framework of philosophy and geography, leads to a reflection on landscape based on the works of the Brazilian master of landscapes, Roberto Burle Marx. His professional career is a unique contribution to deepening the issue of landscape. As a dyad, his theoretical concepts of nature were transformed into livable landscapes. In this ethereal process, the master built places worthy of awakening the senses. This article reflects on his theoretical concepts of landscape, the way he transformed them into landscape architecture projects and his thoughts about the future of the Brazilian landscape.

    2000-01-01

    The Joint Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Environmental Protection (GESAMP) held its Thirtieth Session at the International Atomic Energy Agency's Marine Environment Laboratory in Monaco from 22-26 May 2000. GESAMP was established in 1969 by a number of United Nations Organizations as a Joint Group to encourage the independent, interdisciplinary consideration ol marine pollution and environmental protection problems with a view to avoiding duplication of efforts within the United Nations system. At this meeting GESAMP considered the following main topics: 1) Marine Environmental Assessments; 2) Estimates of Oil Entering the Marine Environment from Sea-Based Activities; 3) Environmental Impacts of Coastal Aquaculture; 4)Evaluation of the Hazards of Harmful Substances Carried by Ships. Marine Environmental Assessments: Two final draft reports were put forth to the Group for approval: 1) The LBA report 'Land-based Sources and Activities Affecting the Quality and Uses of the Marine. Coastal and Associated Freshwater Environment' (document GESAMP XXX/3/2); 2) The Biennial Report 'A Sea of Troubles - Issues in Focus' (document GESAMP XXX/3/1). The Group reviewed the LBA report and approved the final draft for publication as GESAMP Reports and Studies Series No. 71, and also as a commercial publication, with the understanding that certain amendments and suggestions given at this session be taken into account in the final version. The Group reviewed the biennial report and found the text, prepared by a professional writer on the basis of the draft report prepared by the Working Group and reviewed at GESAMP XXIX, very appropriate for the intended target audience.

    Un protectorat devenu envahissant et le déclin des Habsbourg conduisent les Grimaldi de Monaco à quitter la domination espagnole et à se placer, en 1641, sous la protection du roi de France. L’application de l’accord appelle quatre séjours à la cour en dix ans. Le voyage de 1646-1647, en pleine Fronde, est surtout justifié par les doléances par rapport aux engagements royaux. La pérégrination de la petite suite princière jusqu’à Paris est aussi l’occasion d’un pèlerinage dans les fiefs frança...

Parents first of all, but obviously pediatricians at their sides. This is a maxim that I have placed on the back cover of the 5th edition of Pediatria Essenziale”, he said during the presentation of his book in Pavia.Pediatria essenziale is the text of pediatrics which, from its 1stedition in 1978, has been a book studied and consulted by students, physicians and pediatricians and which guided Roberto Burgio’s thought up to the final edition in 2012 to which he applied some five years of total commitment, with the involvement of 120collaborators, a number so large that he defined it a “choral” work. He reviewed and verified every page in contact with the authors to whom he sent questions and requests for extensions. It was thus “his book”, the one to which he entrusted his thought, his knowledge, his being a man and physician. It is thus a work that will remain in the annals of pediatrics. [Burgio è stato un grande maestro di pediatria, e sicuramente ha contribuito ai progressi della medicina e della scienza in generale.“Nessuno nasce per propria volontà e, quindi, siamo tutti impegnati a far vivere bene chi nasce.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the brazilian feature film Miracle, the power of faith (1979, directed by Hércules Breseghelo and starring the portuguese singer and songwriter Roberto Leal as the main character. Its autobiographical plot tells the story of a humble portuguese imigrant whose dream of becoming a famous singer leads him through a journey in which certain values are celebrated, such as self-denied labour, to sacrifice in the name of family, and redemption by faith. My hipothesis is that Miracle takes its place on a lineage of several films and, mainly, musical works which are adressed to the immigrant portuguese community living in Brazil. I also discuss the role of mediator played by Roberto Leal, in its cultural and affective dimensions.

    Full Text Available El trabajo reflexiona sobre el cruce de tendencias presentes en lo que se ha considerado como la primera etapa de la obra de Roberto Arlt. Así, en la estética arltiana de una literatura que encierra “la viol encia de un ‘cross’ a la mandíbula”, definida en las palabras preliminares a Los lanzallamas, se introducen algunos rasgos que provienen del modernismo y del imaginario decadente, en muchos aspectos, muy criticados por el propio escritor. En este marco, se analiza, en primer lugar, “Jehová” (1918, el primer cuento que publicó, cuya construcción evidencia lecturas de fuerte matriz modernista. Luego, se estudia el modo en que Arlt intenta separarse del modernismo-decadentismo en sus textos programáticos, sus novelas y sus primeras narraciones, y la forma en que, de todas maneras, se retoman en su literatura ciertos elementos que remiten visiblemente a la estética en cuestión. Finalmente, indagamos cómo, cuando en Arlt puede observarse una pretensión de “estilo alto”, aparece el modernismo

Nemésio foi a primeira voz que se ouviu sobre a poesia de Mesquita e ressaltando-lhe a ‘açorianidade’ nas suas Almas Cativas. Canta a tristeza, o mar como prisão e destino, juntando ‘portuguesmente’ Baudelaire e Verlaine, as notas metafísicas de Antero no panteísmo e o sentimento da “.solidão atlântica”. Seu imaginário está repleto de almas, das quais é cúmplice, inclusive da alma do passado, alegorizado pelas ruínas. Para Benjamin, as alegorias são no reino dos pensamentos o que as ruínas são no reino das coisas. É célebre a imagem de Benjamin, sobre o Anjo da História, referindo-se à alegoria do quadro de Klee, “Angelus Novus”. Como o anjo da alegoria, Mesquita é preso ao passado, ouvindo e vendo espectros em cativeiro. Na série de poemas “Relicários” há a complexidade da apreensão da essência do mundo real e os objetos são ‘hierofanias’, de que fala Eliade.

    Roberto Mantovani (Parma, 25 March 1854-Paris, 10 January 1933 – a musician and geologist trained in the Duchy of Parma – was a Consul in the French island of La Réunion at the end of the nineteenth century. In 1878 drawing general conclusions from the similarity in shape between the facing banks of a river that flowed in a volcanic fracture, and the way in which the layers corresponded, Mantovani formulated a mobilistic theory, attributing the moving apart of the continents to the expansion of the entire planet. This theory is more general than that of Wegener from the first decades of the following century. Mantovani’s hypothesis was officially recognised by the French Geological Society in 1924, which incorporated it in its body of legitimate ideas. Encouraged by Bourcart in 1924, Wegener quoted the Italian in his famous book as one who offered ideas extraordinarily close to his own. A letter of Mantovani to Wegener, and the sceptical answer of the German scientist, have been recently found. In his letter Mantovani shows a greater awareness of the predecessors of the continental drift than Wegener

    himself. Mantovani continued to disseminate his idea up to the last years of his life. A final pamphlet, of 1930, was printed with this dedication: «to the mathematicians, physicists, astronomers, geologists, and anyone interested in the great enigmas of the Universe». is biography has been reconstructed thanks to the correspondences carefully conserved in the archives of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ethnographic Museum Luigi Pigorini, the Società Geografica Italiana, and in the private files of his direct descendants.

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dosimetric and practical effects of the Monaco treatment planning system “max arcs-per-beam” optimization parameter in pelvic radiotherapy treatments. Methods: A total of 17 previously treated patients were selected for this study with a range of pelvic disease site including prostate(9), bladder(1), uterus(3), rectum(3), and cervix(1). For each patient, two plans were generated, one using a arc-per-beam setting of ‘1’ and another with setting of ‘2’. The setting allows the optimizer to add a gantry direction change, creating multiple arc passes per beam sequence. Volumes and constraints established from the initial clinical treatments were used for planning. All constraints and dose coverage objects were kept the same between plans, and all plans were normalized to 99.7% to ensure 100% of the PTV received 95% of the prescription dose. We evaluated the PTV conformity index, homogeneity index, total monitor units, number of control points, and various dose volume histogram (DVH) points for statistical comparison (alpha=0.05). Results: We found for the 10 complex shaped target volumes (small central volumes with extending bilateral ‘arms’ to cover nodal regions) that the use of 2 arcs-per-beam achieved significantly lower average DVH values for the bladder V20 (p=0.036) and rectum V30 (p=0.001) while still meeting the high dose target constraints. DVH values for the simpler, more spherical PTVs were not found significantly different. Additionally, we found a beam delivery time reduction of approximately 25%. Conclusion: In summary, the dosimetric benefit, while moderate, was improved over a 1 arc-per-beam setting for complex PTVs, and equivalent in other cases. The overall reduced delivery time suggests that the use of multiple arcs-per-beam could lead to reduced patient on table time, increased clinical throughput, and reduced medical physics quality assurance effort.

    Full Text Available The objective of this study was to analyze the influence of the increment of gantry angle and the number of arcs on esophageal volumetric modulated arc therapy plan. All plans were done in Monaco planning system for Elekta Synergy linear accelerator with 80 multileaf collimator (MLC. Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT plans were done with different increment of gantry angle like 15 o , 20 o , 30 o and 40 o . The remaining parameters were similar for all the plans. The results were compared. To compare the plan quality with number of arcs, VMAT plans were done with single and dual arc with increment of gantry angle of 20 o . The dose to gross tumor volume (GTV for 60 Gy and planning target volume (PTV for 48 Gy was compared. The dosimetric parameters D 98% , D 95% , D 50% and D max of GTV were analyzed. The homogeneity index (HI and conformity index (CI of GTV were studied and the dose to 98% and 95% of PTV was analyzed. Maximum dose to spinal cord and planning risk volume of cord (PRV cord was compared. The Volume of lung receiving 10 Gy, 20 Gy and mean dose was analyzed. The volume of heart receiving 30 Gy and 45 Gy was compared. The volume of normal tissue receiving greater than 2 Gy and 5 Gy was compared. The number of monitor units (MU required to deliver the plans were compared. The plan with larger increment of gantry angle proved to be superior to smaller increment of gantry angle plans in terms of dose coverage, HI, CI and normal tissue sparing. The number of arcs did not make any difference in the quality of the plan.

Por mi carácter soy propenso a la sorpresa, por lo tanto no amo proyectos, estrategias, prospectivas, y soy ajeno a cualquier tipo de mercadeo. Hay un hermoso poema de Kavafis que habla de esto, de no disipar la vida en negocios y comercios: no me costó tomarlo en serio. Los grandes descubrimientos vinieron con las informaciones que encontré en los manuales de la carrera de Letras. En las aulas de la Universidad «La ...

    Full Text Available Este artículo construye sus argumentos a partir de una lectura de la novela Estrella distante del escritor chileno Roberto Bolaño. Se trata de desarrollos que se detienen en los componentes visuales del relato, en las divergencias temporales con que se estructura la narración y en los vínculos que estos tienden con la historia política evocada en la ficción (el personaje principal tiene como proyecto demostrarle al mundo la afinidad entre el arte de vanguardia y la dictadura de Pinochet recién instalada en el país. Las variadas presencias de lo fotográfico son comprendidas como el núcleo de una reflexión visual que recorre la literatura de Roberto Bolaño. Este artículo toma en consideración una polémica que enfrentó a dos intelectuales chilenos en torno a la relación entre las prácticas artísticas de vanguardia que tuvieron lugar en Chile en tiempos de la dictadura y el Golpe de Estado de 1973. Esto es leído en relación con el diálogo soterrado que la novela de Bolaño establece con dichas prácticas de vanguardia.

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dosimetric and practical effects of the Monaco treatment planning system “max arcs-per-beam” optimization parameter in pelvic radiotherapy treatments. We selected for this study a total of 17 previously treated patients with a range of pelvic disease sites including prostate (9), bladder (1), uterus (3), rectum (3), and cervix (1). For each patient, 2 plans were generated, one using an arc-per-beam setting of “1” and another with an arc-per-beam setting of “2” using the volumes and constraints established from the initial clinical treatments. All constraints and dose coverage objects were kept the same between plans, and all plans were normalized to 99.7% to ensure 100% of the planning target volume (PTV) received 95% of the prescription dose. Plans were evaluated for PTV conformity, homogeneity, number of monitor units, number of control points, and overall plan acceptability. Treatment delivery time, patient-specific quality assurance procedures, and the impact on clinical workflow were also assessed. We found that for complex-shaped target volumes (small central volumes with extending arms to cover nodal regions), the use of 2 arc-per-beam (2APB) parameter setting achieved significantly lower average dose-volume histogram values for the rectum V{sub 20} (p = 0.0012) and bladder V{sub 30} (p = 0.0036) while meeting the high dose target constraints. For simple PTV shapes, we found reduced monitor units (13.47%, p = 0.0009) and control points (8.77%, p = 0.0004) using 2APB planning. In addition, we found a beam delivery time reduction of approximately 25%. In summary, the dosimetric benefit, although moderate, was improved over a 1APB setting for complex PTV, and equivalent in other cases. The overall reduced delivery time suggests that the use of mulitple arcs per beam could lead to reduced patient-on-table time, increased clinical throughput, and reduced medical physics quality assurance

    Purpose: To simulate tumor tracking in an Elekta MRI-linac (MRL) and to compare this tracking method with our current ITV approach in terms of OAR sparing for lung cancer patients. Methods: Five SABR-NSCLC patients with central lung tumors were selected for reasons of potential enhancement of tumor-tissue delineation using MRI. The Monaco TPS was used to compare the current clinical ITV approach to a simulated, novel tracking method which used a 7MV MRL beam in the presence of an orthogonal 1.5 T magnetic field (4D-MRL method). In the simulated tracking scenario, achieved using the virtual couch shift (VCS), the PTV was defined using an isotropic 5mm margin applied to the GTV of each phase, as acquired from an 8-phase amplitude-binned 4DCT. These VCS plans were optimized and weighted on each phase. The dose weighting was performed using the patient-specific breathing traces. The doses were accumulated on the inhale phase. The two methods were compared by assessing the OAR DVHs. Results: The 4D-MRL method resulted in a reduced target volume (by an average of 29% over all patients). The benefits of using an MRL tracking system depended on the tumor motion amplitude and the relative OAR motion (ROM) to the target. The reduction in mean doses to parallel organs was up to 3 Gy for the heart and 2.1 Gy for the lung. The reductions in maximum doses to serial organs were up to 9.4 Gy, 5.6 Gy, and 8.7 Gy for the esophagus, spinal cord, and the trachea, respectively. Serial organs benefited from MRL tracking when the ROM was ≥ 0.3 cm despite small tumor motion amplitude in some cases. Conclusions: This work demonstrated the potential benefit for an MRL tracking system to spare OARs in SABR-NSCLC patients with central tumors. The benefits are embodied in the target volume reduction. This project was made possible with the financial support of Elekta.

    Since 1958 the General Conferences of the International Atomic Energy Agency have discussed the establishment of scientific centres which would help the Agency to carry out its statutory functions. Subsequently, decisions were taken which have led to the foundation of two laboratories and the establishment under the Agency's auspices of an isotope centre. The plans for the setting up of the Agency's Laboratory Vienna - Seibersdorf were approved by the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency in April 1 959, and the agreement on the Marine Biological Project at Monaco came into force in March 1961. In March 1963 the Middle Eastern Regional Radioisotope Centre for the Arab countries was opened. The first comprehensive report on the activities of the laboratories and the isotope centre is now published; it contains information on the development of the centres and their activities carried out in 1963. The Agency expresses its gratitude to the Governments of Austria, Monaco and the United Arab Republic for the generous assistance offered in connection with the establishment of the laboratories and the isotope centre

    2014-06-01

    Taking into account recent studies on journalistic travel and Argentine nation building, this article examines the profile of a type of reporter that has been studied to a lesser degree, the immigrant journalist. It analyzes two travel chronicles about Patagonia published in Buenos Aires in 1898: Ein Ausflug nach dem Chubut-Territorium [An Excursion to the Chubut Territory] by Swiss journalist Theodor Alemann, published in the German-language newspaper Argentinisches Tageblatt [Argentine Daily], and La australia argentina, by Roberto J. Payró which appeared in La Nación. In both chronicles the narration of the trip to Patagonia is interrupted at a key moment by the telling of a dream regarding the future of the region. This essay demonstrates that these oneiric digressions reveal political and economic interests contrary to the official Argentine plans for the development of the region, the role of immigrants and their relationship with European powers.

    Full Text Available The article is focused on some journalistic chronicles by Roberto Arlt and Enrique González Tuñón, issued by the late 1930s and the beginning of the 1940s, in a massive newspaper like El Mundo. These chronicles deal with the same subject matter (the World War II, current events and curiosities and are written by using similar procedures like "Glosa" of the news, and fictional expansión of the international newswires. Therefore, our intent is to reflect about this cross between fiction and chronicle in a time in which both writers had gain a highly respected position within the literature as well as the journalism

    Full Text Available En este artículo se pretende rastrear la estética y actitud del movimiento infrarrealista en las novelas de Roberto Bolaño, mostrando su particular traducción a la narrativa en clave de humor. Se le prestará especial atención a las técnicas para posicionarse en contra de la cultura institucionalizada, formando lo que Bajtín denomina una descentralización del lenguaje a favor de un plurilingüismo, donde se distinguen mundos ideológicos en las voces del discurso. Unas de estas voces representan en ocasiones instituciones de la cultura oficial y otras se posicionan en contra, haciendo para ello uso de, por ejemplo, la parodia, la ironía o la caricatura.

    Full Text Available This paper elaborates on Giorgio Agamben’s and Roberto Esposito’s thought on the Community. Both authors interrogate the Common from an impolitical perspective that tries to deconstruct the presuppositions of traditional metaphysics and political philosophy in order to create an affirmative conceptuality in ontological terms. In these authors predominates the recourse to the figure of the community, later considered in the horizon of biopolitics, since life becomes the center of both the power dispositives and today’s forms of political subjectification. The paper asks if these ontological approaches succeed in thinking the common politically or only in ethical terms.El presente trabajo reflexiona sobre el pensamiento de la comunidad en Giorgio Agamben y Roberto Esposito. Ambos interrogan lo común desde una perspectiva impolítica que intenta deconstruir los presupuestos de la metafísica y de la filosofía política tradicionales para poder elaborar una conceptualidad afirmativa en clave ontológica. En estos autores predomina el recurso a la figura de la comunidad, situada luego en el horizonte de la biopolítica, ya que la vida deviene el centro hacia el cual apuntarían los dispositivos de poder y las formas de subjetivación política actuales. El trabajo plantea como interrogante si estos abordajes ontológicos logran dar cuenta plenamente de lo común en términos políticos o sólo éticos.

Juxtaposées dans le cadre d’un projet pluridisciplinaire, mise en scène théâtrale et projection chorégraphique se font écho. En incorporant les tensions parole/mouvement et (invisible/(inintelligible inscrites dans le dispositif métathéâtral beckettien, Foulplay suscite une réflexion sur le statut insaisissable du corps dansant, suspendu entre surgissement et évanescence, alors que le projecteur éclairant tour à tour la scène parlée et la scène dansée jette une lumière nouvelle sur les fondements et les conditions du percevoir mis à nu, et en cause, par Beckett. || Based on the company’s video recording of the performance and on an interview with the choreographer, this paper deals with the piece for three dancers Foulplay (2005 by Roberto Zappalà. Within an interartistic project juxtaposing theatre production and contemporary dance, the choreographer has drawn inspiration from Play (1963, a work that marks a turning point in Beckett’s dramatic œuvre. By embodying the tensions between word and movement and between the (invisible and the (unintelligible which define the playwright’s meta-theatrical stage, Foulplay offers a meditation on the striking, yet elusive presence of the performing body. At the same time, the spotlight that illuminates both Play’s talking heads and Foulplay’s moving bodies focuses on the many ways Beckett’s theatre questions the fundamentals of perception.

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available The presence of queer motifs in contemporary Latin American literature is getting more and more relevant nowadays, generating a rich and complex corpus of texts where the thematic obsession with the opaque, incongruous, mischievous body overtly exceeds the LGBT borders and becomes a strategy of experimenting new politics and poetics of representing Latin American collective identity. This essay aims at giving a new theoretically hybrid frame of reading to some of the most emblematic texts of the contemporary canon, one where the postcolonial discourse mixes with queer studies. A classic urban chronicle about transvestism by Pedro Lemebel and the novel Woes of the true Policeman by Roberto Bolaño will be considered as case studies: both the faux detective story of a Chilean exiled investigating on his own sexual ambiguity and the magic-realistic performance of a indio imitator of the pop singer Madonna seems to allude to a sort of subversive continuation of the postcolonial assessment of the New World, in which notions of “obliqueness”, “unaccountability” and, crucially, “vulnerability” sound ambiguously as a critical response and as an ingenious actualization of traditionally fostered cultural constructs such as “mestizaje” and hybridization.

Tomando como base los comentarios frankfurtianos sobre el auge de la novela policial en la modernidad, se comparan dos escritores europeos (Andrea Camilleri y Henning Mankell con un latinoamericano (Roberto Bolaño. 2666, la novela de Bolaño, se construye desde un tipo particular de violencia social relacionada con la impunidad y la impotencia del estado, o en definitiva, con la imposibilidad del proyecto moderno. Esta realidad da lugar a un tipo de representación que se aparta de los cánones de la novela policial, como se apreciará en la caracterización del detective. Investigando los violentos desafíos al frágil orden social, este nuevo tipo de novela policial latinoamericana pone en cuestión los mecanismos de representación de la muerte, esto es, la representación de lo irrepresentable.

    Full Text Available Con los horrores del siglo XX, el mal ha caído en un vacío ontológico que lo hace ininteligible: la desemantización de su lenguaje y la atrofia de sus fórmulas niegan la posibilidad de erigir un discurso válido, sea éste en el plano moral, político o filosófico. La literatura, sin embargo, se aventura a resignificar el espacio del mal a partir de su reelaboración en la dimensión simbólica de la ficción. Roberto Bolaño reconstruye el discurso histórico chileno en Estrella distante y Nocturno de Chile, denunciando el fenómeno del mal y su reiterada aparición en la Historia y resignificando su lenguaje a partir de una poética del ocultamiento y la sugerencia que permite visibilizar el horror y sus espacios, convirtiendo sus ficciones en documentos testimoniales que reelaboran la memoria histórica latinoamericana y reivindican sus episodios olvidados.

    2001-12-01

    Full Text Available En la obra literaria del escritor argentino Roberto Arlt, la imaginación no conduce a los personajes a la liberación, sino a la derrota definitiva. Su teatro está lleno de criaturas miserables que tratan de sobreponerse inútilmente a los continuos encontronazos con la vida cotidiana. Sus obras contemplan numerosos desdoblamientos imaginativos que permiten al autor introducir diferentes niveles en la ficción y plantear el teatro dentro del teatro. En La isla desierta, una de sus piezas más breves y representadas, los personajes de una triste oficina portuaria experimentan un cambio radical en sus vidas cuando dejan de trabajar en un sótano y son trasladados a la décima planta de un inmueble. Allí, a través de un inmenso ventanal, son reclamados por un sinfín de tentaciones que se encuentran más allá del mundo gris de la oficina. Los empleados descubren los beneficios de la luz natural, la llegada de los buques, el bullicio de la calle, los reclamos de la libertad, elementos que acaban desestabilizando la rutina administrativa. No obstante, es el relato de uno de los personajes, el mulato Cipriano, cuya memoria es esencialmente literaria, el que arrastra al resto de los oficinistas a la ensoñación y a la consiguiente derrota.

    Full Text Available O artigo examina o pensamento político de Roberto Campos entre meados das décadas de 1950 e 1970. Neste período, além de importantes funções governamentais, Campos dedicou-se intensamente à luta de idéias, publicando grande quantidade de artigos e ensaios. Será desenvolvida a hipótese de que o seu pensamento político aponta para a institucionalização de um sistema político de tipo autoritário como o mais adequado às condições culturais e políticas da sociedade brasileira. A principal característica deste tipo de sistema consiste na hipertrofia do poder Executivo estatal, sob comando de militares e tecnocratas, relativamente aos demais poderes da República. A função primordial do poder Executivo hipertrofiado são a elaboração e a implementação de reformas institucionais e de políticas econômicas "racionais", contra as resistências pretensamente particularistas e irracionais dos diferentes setores da sociedade brasileira. Essa hipótese colide frontalmente com a sugestão de Campos de que o regime instituído após o movimento de 1964 seria uma espécie de atualização, nas condições da sociedade brasileira de então, do instituto da "ditadura comissária" da antiga República romana, pelo qual se permitia a eleição de um ditador por um curto período de tempo para debelar eventuais ameaças às instituições republicanas.

    Monaco's Prince Albert II followed the footsteps of his great great grandfather when he ventured to the Arctic Archipelago to track climate change, this time with IAEA Marine scientists. He undertook this trip to draw global attention to the environmental damage to the Arctic regions caused by global warming. Although far away from industrialized areas, Svalbard Island is eminently suitable to observe the evolution of climate change and long-range pollutants transported from northern European countries by water currents and from North America by winds. Using nuclear techniques, it is hoped that some of the causes of climate change can be unlocked. The first of these studies was undertaken to evaluate the shell laminations of a very long-lived marine bivalve mollusc, the Ocean Quahog.

    Full Text Available La formazione rappresenta uno strumento basilare nella promozione della lingua e della cultura italiana. L’argomento è articolato e complesso perché abbraccia diverse questioni. Da un lato va sostenuto l’utilizzo di mezzi adeguati, come quello telematico, che favoriscono e facilitano la diffusione all’estero. Dall’altro la proposta didattica di università e scuole deve essere riorganizzata alla luce delle nuove esigenze formative. Il ruolo degli atenei italiani potrebbe diventare più incisivo se si adeguassero maggiormente agli standard esteri, in modo da favorire la circolazione di studenti anche verso e non soltanto dall’Italia. Per quanto riguarda, invece, il tipo di formazione da sostenere, va riqualificata quella umanistica e tradizionale, non perché rappresenti la cultura nella sua totalità ma perché costituisce un patrimonio che caratterizza il nostro paese e non deve andare perso. Abbiamo parlato di queste tematiche con il Professor Roberto Greci, Preside della Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia dell’Università di Parma e Presidente del Consiglio scientifico e didattico del Consorzio Interuniversitario ICoN, Italian Culture On the Net.     The role of training in the promotion of Italian language and culture. An interview with Professor Roberto Greci, Dean of the Literature and Philosophy Faculty at the University of Parma   Training represents a basic tool in promoting Italian language and culture.  The topic is complex because it encompasses diverse issues.  On the one hand appropriate means are needed, like telematic resources, which encourage and facilitate spreading abroad.  On the other, university and school courses need to be reorganized in light of the new training needs.  The role of Italian universities could to be stronger if they met foreign standards, to promote the circulation of students towards and not just away from Italy.  As far as regards the type of training to be undertaken, the humanistic

    Full Text Available Este artículo se propone analizar la novela de Roberto Bolaño Amuleto (1999 y en particular su interés por el límite de una resistencia política. En este estudio se yuxtapone la descripción en la novela de la masacre en Tlatelolco con la obra de Carlos Fuentes Los 68: París, Praga, México (2005, y su uso tanto de la memoria no ficcional de París en 1968 como el recuento ficcional de lo sucedido en Tlatelolco. Este artículo intenta demostrar cómo en Los 68 se intenta recuperar un tipo de subjetividad cuyos imaginarios utópicos definían los años sesenta, y cómo el uso de alegoría en Amuleto marca el vaciamiento de ese imaginario.This paper analyzes Roberto Bolaño’s Amuleto (1999, and in particular its interest in the cotemporary limits of political resistance. The essay subsequently juxtaposes the novel’s depiction of the massacre at Tlateloco with Carlos Fuentes’ Los 68: Paris, Praga, México (2005, and its use of both a non-fictional memoir of Paris in 1968 and a fictionalized account of Tlateloco. Ultimately, this essay demonstrates how Los 68 attempts to recuperate a kind of subjectivity in which utopian imaginaries defined the 1960s, but which Amuleto’s mobilization of allegory reveals as emptied out.

    La Segunda Edición de un Libro Admirable (Comentario a la 2ª Edición del libro “Antonio Vargas Reyes-La Medicina del Siglo XIX en Colombia” por el Académico Roberto de Zubiría C.-Febrero 2003

     

    Circunstancias ajenas a la voluntad de los protagonistas hicieron que la presentación de este libro ante la Academia Nacional de Medicina tuviera que ser postergada hasta la fecha actual. De todas maneras, persiste mi vivo agradecimiento ante las directivas de la Academia y ante el mismo autor por haberme distinguido con el honor de ser yo quien presente ante ustedes esta obra, en el momento ya con varios meses de haber sido publicada por Editorial Kimpres, en un elegante volumen de 212 páginas y que marca un hito entre los libros de historia médica publicados en el país en el año 2002.

    Efectivamente, en sus 20 capítulos, seguidos de un apéndice y del testamento del personaje aquí biografiado, además de una extensa bibliografía curiosamente referida con números romanos, Roberto de Zubiría nos entrega una visión panorámica de lo que fue, como reza el subtítulo, la medicina del siglo XIX en Colombia. Medicina que estuvo rubricada y marcada por los sucesos de la independencia, en su segunda década, a la que se siguió el cambio intelectual necesario y obligatorio que nos trocaba de un pensamiento de colonos y súbditos al de seres independientes, que debían crear o transformar las nuevas instituciones de la patria. Como lo ha dicho el historiador médico español García-Valdés a propósito de Europa, podría decirse que el siglo XIX sólo llega a la medicina colombiana a partir de 1820. Por eso el primer capítulo hace un inventario de lo que era el ambiente y las escuelas iniciales de la primera mitad de ese siglo, con los primeros intentos de establecer una cátedra por José Celestino Mutis y Miguel de Isla, a quienes el autor señala justamente como los verdaderos precursores

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available The study examines three novels of apocalyptic character, Cien años de soledad by Gabriel García Márquez, La guerra del fin del mundo by Mario Vargas Llosa and Estrella distante by Roberto Bolaño. Both in Cien años de soledad and in La guerra del fin del mundo apocalypse is related to the sudden and forced graft of modernity in a backward society and to the inability of the ruling class to understand the disturbing and devastating aspects of such a graft and, more generally, to understand themselves, their own development, their own history. Through the metaliterary component that characterizes them, Garcia Marquez’s and Vargas Llosa’ novels represent literature as an instrument that as memory, as a form of processing and understanding of history, can help to prevent the repetition of the apocalypse they narrate. In Bolaño’s novel, on the contrary, writers seem not to have any cognitive power anymore and their literature not only doesn’t play any salvific role, but rather becomes one of the elements that contributes to the historical catastrophe.

    Full Text Available A reformulação dos estádios para a Copa do Mundo ilustra a chegada do conceito de arena ao futebol brasileiro. Nesse contexto, a Arena Pernambuco converteu-se em uma parceria entre o consórcio responsável pela gestão da arena e o Clube Náutico Capibaribe. A associação promove uma situação nova para a torcida alvirrubra, que se depara com a mudança do Estádio dos Aflitos, que congrega muito da história do clube, para a Arena Pernambuco, um novo modelo de estádio. Assim, buscamos compreender como a torcida do Náutico significa esses espaços sociais. Para tal, realizamos uma etnografia da comunicação e usamos a perspectiva teórica de Roberto DaMatta como lente para interpretação dos achados, que nos levaram a refletir como esses estádios ganharam significados a partir de dois pontos de vista: um ligado a uma visão de mundo específica de uma sociedade e outro fundamentado nas regras e valores de uma ordem social vigente.

    Full Text Available This brief biography is one among many published works by RobertoBlanco Andrés, a Spanish historian who specializes in the history of religious orders in the Philippines, particularly the Augustinians. The aim of the present work is simple. It is to recount Fray Manuel Grijalvo’s life as a religious priest who occupied key positions in the Augustinian Order and in the Philippine church as bishop of Nueva Caceres (now Naga in the first half of the 19th century, at a time when both the Order and the church in the Philippines were undergoing transition. This succinct narration of an Augustinian bishop’s lifeopens a window through which one can appreciate Philippine history in the 19th century. Although brief, the summary of Grijalvo’s years in the Philippines, spent in Manila and Nueva Caceres, gives a relatively complete view of the challenges that the Catholic Church was facing in this era, both within the Augustinian Order and in the Diocese of Nueva Caceres. This is so because Grijalvo was an Augustinian missionary who also occupied key posts as parish priest in Batangas towns (1814 -1818 and in Pasig (1833 -1839 and 1831-1847. He was also procurator and prior of the Order between 1818 and 1832. In1848, he was appointed bishop of Nueva Caceres, a post he occupied until his death in 1861. His life, therefore, encapsulates the struggles and challenges of the Philippine Catholic Church and the Spanish colonial government.

    Full Text Available O tema da qualidade da formação profissional há muito tem dirigido as políticas educacionais e influenciado nas matrizes curriculares dos cursos de graduação no país. Contudo, a questão extrapola este espaço e envolve, cada vez mais, as experiências extraclasses. Deste modo a extensão, pesquisa e publicação universitárias assumem papel relevante para a melhoria do ensino. Nesta entrevista o Professor e Pesquisador Livre Docente José Roberto Rus Perez nos fala da importância da pesquisa e publicação na formação de ensino superior. Seu relato de 30 anos de experiência no Núcleo de Estudos em Políticas Públicas (NEEP/UNICAMP evidencia alguns pontos fundamentais para que o ensino de graduação experiencie a pesquisa e divulgação, através da publicação, como pilares de sustentação do bom ensino. Ele também demonstra a estreita relação entre a formação na graduação e as dificuldades vividas na pós-graduação no país, sobretudo pela carência da pesquisa que é, sempre, tão necessária ao trabalho do profissional no mercado ou no setor público, na licenciatura ou no bacharelado. Cabe ressaltar também que o professor José Roberto Rus Perez é membro do Conselho Consultivo Nacional da Revista Eventos Pedagógicos – REP’s.

    Visual perception and eye movements are considered to be tightly linked. Diverse fields, ranging from developmental psychology to computer science, utilize eye tracking to measure visual perception. However, this prevailing view has been challenged by recent behavioral studies. We review converging evidence revealing dissociations between the contents of perceptual awareness and different types of eye movements. Such dissociations reveal situations in which eye movements are sensitive to particular visual features that fail to modulate perceptual reports. We also discuss neurophysiological, neuroimaging and clinical studies supporting the role of subcortical pathways for visual processing without awareness. Our review links awareness to perceptual-eye movement dissociations and furthers our understanding of the brain pathways underlying vision and movement with and without awareness. PMID:25765322

More than 4,500 scanned images of 4,436 species are available online, and it is expected that the whole collection will be scanned in less than one year. There are 198 families of angiosperms, 33 of ferns, three of lycophytes and six of gymnosperms. All collections of the Floristic and Forest Inventory of Santa Catarina project are recorded in FURB, which represents almost 35,000 herbarium specimens. The families with the largest number of species are: Cyperaceae (109 species), Rubiaceae (129), Solanaceae (131), Poaceae (155), Melastomataceae (157), Myrtaceae (257), Orchidaceae (288), Fabaceae (323), and Asteraceae (426), between angiosperms. Among the ferns and lycophytes are: Hymenophyllaceae (30), Thelypteridaceae (31), Aspleniaceae (32), Dryopteridaceae (43), Pteridaceae (54) and Polypodiaceae (60). There are five type specimens among them: one holotype, one isotype and three paratypes. To date, the FURB herbarium has donated 19,521 herbarium duplicates for identification or expansion of other herbaria.

    The programme of the International Laboratory of Marine Radioactivity has continued largely along the research lines outlined in the last progress report (IAEA-163). In addition to the regular intercalibration programme of radionuclide measurements, the Laboratory has distributed a number of reference materials for the measurement of trace metals and organochlorine compounds. This latter effort was, and continues to be, supported by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The first results obtained from the participating laboratories indicate that while comparability for trace element measurements are encouraging, the same cannot be said for the determination of organochlorine compounds. The experience obtained to date in all of the intercalibration exercises attests to the desirability of maintaining such services for the benefit of the scientific community involved in environmental research

  10. The Flipped Classroom: Teaching the Basic Science Process Skills to High-Performing 2nd Grade Students of Miriam College Lower School

    Full Text Available Technology has greatly shaped pedagogical practices over time. However scholars posit that the developing technology-aided, -based, and -oriented instructional practices still need scholarly and systematic studies to prove their effectiveness. An emerging teaching strategy that highlights technology tools and programs is Flipped Learning: a strategy where technology redirects learning from large groups to individuals. The research described here hypothesizes that there is a significant difference between the basic science process skills test score means of elementary students in a Flipped classroom and those in a traditional classroom. To test this hypothesis, an experimental design was used as the participants were divided the into two groups: experimental and control. An instructional design was crafted to simultaneously teach both control and experimental groups within a one (1 hour schedule. The experimental group was asked to watch at home researcher-made videos that teach the basic science process skills. In class, these participants deepened understanding of the skills through varied activities. The control group was taught using the traditional method operationalized as 5E Inquiry-Based Model.Both pre- and post-tests were administered to check the relative test scores. A Mann Whitney U test was conducted to evaluate the difference between the basic process skills test mean scores. It is concluded that there is a statistically significant difference (at α=0.05, r = 0.42 with a large effect size between the two variables.

  11. Capability of leaf interdigitation with different inverse planning strategies in Monaco: an investigation of representative tumour sites

    The aim of this study was to experimentally assess the dosimetric impact of leaf interdigitation using different inverse treatment strategies for representative tumour sites and to identify the situations in which leaf interdigitation can benefit these tumour sites. Sixty previously treated patients (15 nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), 15 multiple brain metastasis (MBM), 15 cervical cancer and 15 prostate cancer) were re-planned for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), sliding window IMRT (dMLC) and step-and-shoot IMRT (ssIMRT) with and without leaf interdigitation. Various dosimetric variables, such as PTV coverage, OARs sparing, delivery efficiency and planning time, were evaluated for each plan. In addition, a protocol developed by our group was applied to identify the situations in which leaf interdigitation can achieve benefits in clinical practice. Leaf interdigitation produced few benefits in PTV homogeneity for the MBM VMAT plans and NPC ssIMRT plans. For OARs, sparing was equivalent with and without leaf interdigitation. Leaf interdigitation showed an increase in MUs for dMLC plans and a decrease in MUs for ssIMRT plans. Leaf interdigitation resulted in an increase in segments for dMLC plans and a decrease in segments for NPC and MBM ssIMRT plans. For beam on time, leaf interdigitation showed an increase in MBM dMLC, NPC ssIMRT and prostate ssIMRT plans. In addition, leaf interdigitation saved planning time for VMAT and dMLC plans but increased planning time for ssIMRT plans. Leaf interdigitation does not improve plan quality when performing inverse treatment strategies, regardless of whether the target is simple or complex. However, it influences the delivery efficiency and planning time. Based on these observations, our study suggests that leaf interdigitation should be utilized when performing MBM VMAT plans and NPC ssIMRT plans.

  12. Zur Politik der Intertextualität in Roberto Bolaños ‚Estrella Distante‘

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Samir Sellami

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Am Beispiel von Bolaños 1996 erschienenem Kurzroman Estrella Distante untersucht der Beitrag die spezifische Logik der Intertextualität in Bolaños Poetik. Seine implizite Logik der Intertextualität entwickelt sich dabei nicht im luftleeren Raum, sondern im Kontrastverhältnis zu der erzählten Poetik des Protagonisten Carlos Wieder. Dessen formal progressive, aber politisch reaktionär motivierte Poetik deckt die fundamentale Ambivalenz avantgardistischer Poetiken auf und führt zur gegensätzlichen Affirmation einer metabolischen Intertextualität, die den körperlichen und gelebten Kontakt mit dem Literarischen in den Vordergrund stellt. In dieser Konstellation wird Estrella Distante lesbar als poetischer Widerstand und literarische Vergeltung an der historischen Wirklichkeit.

    . This interest has different reasons, some of them related with the current majoritarian epistemological doctrine that links constitutionalism with democracy, freedom and equality. Today we conceive a constitution as a charter of rights and freedoms, as a synonym of legal and political guarantee, a device......Beginning the new Century there are more constitutional democracies than ever and authoritarian regimes seems to be weaker, isolated and more pointed and under pressure. Even so, the analysis of the relation between constitutionalism and authoritarianism continues fascinating academics worldwide...... to protect minorities and limit public power and arbitrariness. We also tend to relate a constitution with the best values and virtues of the rule of law that links symbiotically democracy and law.

    Full Text Available El comentario a la Física es representativo de dos rasgos fundamentales de toda su obra: repensar la sabiduría griega y orientarla hacia su principal interés, las especulaciones científico- experimentales. La combinación de postulados epistemológicos aristotélicos con su personal concepción ontológica agustiniana neoplatonizante (metafísica de la luz, teoría de la iluminación divina da por resultado una obra original más que un comentario en sentido estricto. El libro VII, cuya importancia radica sobre todo en la exposición de la prueba de la existencia el primer motor, es analizado por Grosseteste no en este sentido, sino en unas breves notas no sistemáticas, vinculadas a aspectos muy secundarios en el original, inspirados en parte en textos de Avicena y Averroes, y congruentes con sus intereses científicos. Se destacan cuatro aportes originales: 1. reducción de las cualidades sensibles a las táctiles; 2. teoría de la semejanza de las formas como explicación de la interacción sustancial; 3. reducción del estudio físico a las propiedades; 4. análisis experiencial de las propiedades.

    Além disso, os personagens são assombrados pelo que houve na Europa durante o Holocausto. Nesta época, inúmeros judeus fugiram da Europa rumo aos trópicos buscando asilo político no Brasil. Porém, em endereço diferente, continuaram sendo assombrados pelo fantasma de Hitler e pelas memórias angustiantes da Shoah. A obra é ainda importante se levarmos em consideração as figuras femininas - em especial Stela Mayer - já que representam, dentro desta narrativa de Drummond, as minorias mais sacrificadas e sofridas frente à Shoah e também as mais tenazes na luta pela sobrevivência.

  17. Lettere di Vilfredo Pareto all’amico Roberto Michels: confini e confine nel Trattato di Sociologia Generale del 1916

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Raffaele Federici

    2017-08-01

    Full Text Available In questa ricerca di senso fra la fine di un'epoca e la nuova visione del mondo, c’è, nei due Autori, quello che potrebbe chiamarsi una betweenness: Pareto, quasi un franco-italiano, e Michels, un italiano-tedesco, anzi un più che italiano. Nella linea di faglia rappresentata dal primo conflitto mondiale, i due sociologi sono in una doppia relazione interiore appunto franco-italiana Pareto e italo-tedesca Michels e una relazione esteriore fra il mondo di ieri e il mondo successivo al cataclisma che fu la prima guerra mondiale, quando ben quattro imperi colossali erano stati smembrati (l’Impero Russo, l’Impero Tedesco, l’Impero Austro-ungarico e l’Impero ottomano, nello stesso tempo in cui Emile Durkheim guardava con inquietudine alla disgregazione delle vecchie comunità tradizionali, dove il senso della crisi del tempo investe non solo le persone e i comportamenti, ma il mondo logico stesso. Lo scambio epistolare avviene nella stessa terra: Pareto a Celigny, sul lago di Ginevra , e Michels a Basilea , lungo le rive del Reno. Vi è, fra i due sociologi un profondo rispetto, che vedrà Robert Michels dedicare allo “scienziato e amico Vilfredo Pareto con venerazione” un’opera importante come “Problemi di sociologia applicata” pubblicata solo tre anni dopo il Trattato di Sociologia Generale del Maestro. In questa antologia di saggi Robert Michels, probabilmente composti fra il 1914 e il 1917, negli anni del grande cataclisma, anzi concepiti prima «dell’insediamento di questa terribile corte suprema di cassazione di tutte le nostre ideologie, che è la guerra» , quindi contemporanea al Trattato, il Maestro viene citato tre volte, come Max Weber, ma, de facto, la presenza di Pareto è continua. In particolare, il richiamo al Maestro è iscritto a due piste di ricerca: da una parte la realtà della ricerca sociologica e del suo amplissimo spettro di analisi e dall’altra la teoria della circolazione delle elités. È proprio in occasione della pubblicazione del volume “Problemi di sociologia applicata” che Pareto risponderà a Michels a proposito di metodo scientifico.

    Full Text Available The democratic governments of Chile have taken care of the restoration of these murales by revaluing what the dictatorship tried to wipe out. The Author aims at investigating their origin as well their meaning, with reference to both the society and the political ideologies that inspired the painters during the governments of Frente Popular (1938-1941 and of Unidad Popular (1970-1973. In this perspective, the two murales represent meaningful clues for the widening of an inquiry about the relationship between the intellectuals and the political power, within the scope of a specific artistic production, originated as a tool for the class struggle.

    Exchanging and sharing scientific results are essential for researchers in the field of computational modelling. BioModels.net defines agreed-upon standards for model curation. A fundamental one, MIRIAM (Minimum Information Requested in the Annotation of Models), standardises the annotation and curation process of quantitative models in biology. To support this standard, MIRIAM Resources maintains a set of standard data types for annotating models, and provides services for manipulating these annotations. Furthermore, BioModels.net creates controlled vocabularies, such as SBO (Systems Biology Ontology) which strictly indexes, defines and links terms used in Systems Biology. Finally, BioModels Database provides a free, centralised, publicly accessible database for storing, searching and retrieving curated and annotated computational models. Each resource provides a web interface to submit, search, retrieve and display its data. In addition, the BioModels.net team provides a set of Web Services which allows the community to programmatically access the resources. A user is then able to perform remote queries, such as retrieving a model and resolving all its MIRIAM Annotations, as well as getting the details about the associated SBO terms. These web services use established standards. Communications rely on SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) messages and the available queries are described in a WSDL (Web Services Description Language) file. Several libraries are provided in order to simplify the development of client software. BioModels.net Web Services make one step further for the researchers to simulate and understand the entirety of a biological system, by allowing them to retrieve biological models in their own tool, combine queries in workflows and efficiently analyse models.

    2017-09-01

    Modern modalities of radiation treatment therapy allow irradiation of the tumor to high dose values and irradiation of organs at risk (OARs) to low dose values at the same time. In this paper we study optimal radiation treatment plans made in Monaco system. The first aim of this study was to evaluate dosimetric features of Monaco treatment planning system using biological versus dose-based cost functions for the OARs and irradiation targets (namely tumors) when the full potential of built-in biological cost functions is utilized. The second aim was to develop criteria for the evaluation of radiation dosimetry plans for patients based on the macroscopic radiobiological criteria - TCP/NTCP. In the framework of the study four dosimetric plans were created utilizing the full extent of biological and physical cost functions using dose calculation-based treatment planning for IMRT Step-and-Shoot delivery of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in prostate case (5 fractions per 7 Gy).

    The Agency's regulatory work has proved even more important than was originally expected. It is clear that these activities must be continued for several years, as there are several fields not yet covered, and several which must be followed through by incorporation into international conventions or other administrative frameworks. Research in this field is to be conducted under a trilateral agreement between the International atomic Energy Agency, the Government of the Principality of Monaco and the Institute of Oceanography in Monaco. The program will have three major objectives. Firstly, it will be aimed at acquiring knowledge about the movement of water and marine organisms and the deposition of organic and inorganic matter. Secondly, there will be a special study of the distribution in marine organisms of radioactive materials already existing or that may be introduced into various locations. And thirdly, there will be a study of the effects of radioactive materials at various concentration levels on the marine ecology.

    Dosimetric quality assurance (QA) of the new Elekta Unity (MR-linac) will differ from the QA performed of a conventional linac due to the constant magnetic field, which creates an electron return effect (ERE). In this work we aim to validate PRESAGE® dosimetry in a transverse magnetic field, and assess its use to validate the research version of the Monaco TPS of the MR-linac. Cylindrical samples of PRESAGE® 3D dosimeter separated by an air gap were irradiated with a cobalt-60 unit, while placed between the poles of an electromagnet at 0.5 T and 1.5 T. This set-up was simulated in EGSnrc/Cavity Monte Carlo (MC) code and relative dose distributions were compared with measurements using 1D and 2D gamma criteria of 3% and 1.5 mm. The irradiation conditions were adapted for the MR-linac and compared with Monaco TPS simulations. Measured and EGSnrc/Cavity simulated profiles showed good agreement with a gamma passing rate of 99.9% for 0.5 T and 99.8% for 1.5 T. Measurements on the MR-linac also compared well with Monaco TPS simulations, with a gamma passing rate of 98.4% at 1.5 T. Results demonstrated that PRESAGE® can accurately measure dose and detect the ERE, encouraging its use as a QA tool to validate the Monaco TPS of the MR-linac for clinically relevant dose distributions at tissue-air boundaries.

  18. The work of the International Laboratory of Marine Radioactivity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Walton, A.

    1981-01-01

    It is only during the past three decades that international interest has focused on the need to manage and nurture one of our most valued resources - the oceans. In spite of this growing recognition, however, it is only during the past ten years that international agreement has been reached on the control of dumping of wastes (including nuclear wastes) at sea. The International Laboratory of Marine Radioactivity was established in 1961 well before the international agreement came into force. Indeed the Laboratory came into existence as a result of the foresight and appreciation by the International Atomic Energy Agency of the need to attack the problem of the behaviour of radioactive substances in the oceans - a subject about which little was known prior to the 1950s. With the co-operation of the Government of Monaco and the Institut Oceanographique, the Laboratory was established in 1961 in the Musee Oceanographique, Monaco. It is appropriate that the Laboratory was established in a building created by one of the most prominent pioneers in oceanography - Prince Albert 1sup(er) of Monaco. Since 1961 the programme and activities of the Monaco Laboratory have expanded and changed with the changing emphasis in pollution problems in the oceans. Throughout the many changes in emphasis which have occurred during the past 20 years, however, it is probably fair to say that the broad objectives have remained the same. The Laboratory exists therefore: to perform research on the occurrence and behaviour of radioactive substances and other forms of pollution in the marine environment; to ensure the quality of the performance and comparability of studies of radioactive substances and other forms of pollution in the marine environment by national laboratories through inter-laboratory comparisons, calibration and standardization of methodology; to assist Member States with regard to marine radioactivity and environmental problems by training personnel, establishing co

  1. Evaluation of six TPS algorithms in computing entrance and exit doses

    2014-01-01

    Entrance and exit doses are commonly measured in in vivo dosimetry for comparison with expected values, usually generated by the treatment planning system (TPS), to verify accuracy of treatment delivery. This report aims to evaluate the accuracy of six TPS algorithms in computing entrance and exit doses for a 6 MV beam. The algorithms tested were: pencil beam convolution (Eclipse PBC), analytical anisotropic algorithm (Eclipse AAA), AcurosXB (Eclipse AXB), FFT convolution (XiO Convolution), multigrid superposition (XiO Superposition), and Monte Carlo photon (Monaco MC). Measurements with ionization chamber (IC) and diode detector in water phantoms were used as a reference. Comparisons were done in terms of central axis point dose, 1D relative profiles, and 2D absolute gamma analysis. Entrance doses computed by all TPS algorithms agreed to within 2% of the measured values. Exit doses computed by XiO Convolution, XiO Superposition, Eclipse AXB, and Monaco MC agreed with the IC measured doses to within 2%‐3%. Meanwhile, Eclipse PBC and Eclipse AAA computed exit doses were higher than the IC measured doses by up to 5.3% and 4.8%, respectively. Both algorithms assume that full backscatter exists even at the exit level, leading to an overestimation of exit doses. Despite good agreements at the central axis for Eclipse AXB and Monaco MC, 1D relative comparisons showed profiles mismatched at depths beyond 11.5 cm. Overall, the 2D absolute gamma (3%/3 mm) pass rates were better for Monaco MC, while Eclipse AXB failed mostly at the outer 20% of the field area. The findings of this study serve as a useful baseline for the implementation of entrance and exit in vivo dosimetry in clinical departments utilizing any of these six common TPS algorithms for reference comparison.

    The last six months have been a frenetically busy time for us in Monaco. Our Marine Programmes have been positively reviewed by the Standing Advisory Group on Nuclear Applications (SAGNA) and by an External Evaluation of our Programme. Both Groups report to the Director General, Mr Mohammed ElBaradei, and we hope that new investment in personnel and equipment may eventually result from their evaluations and feedback. We were honoured by the visit of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco in March 2006 to our facilities. HSH continues to take a personal interest in MEL's isotopic and pollutant analyses of biota and environmental samples from the Arctic environment which we sampled during His Highness' cruise in June 2005 (see Vol. 3. No 2. MEL Newsletter). This issue also shows that MEL has hosted several important workshops and meetings. The US Research Vessel Endeavour visited the port of Monaco in April and MEL hosted an informal reception for the crew. The visit was in connection with ongoing, joint MEL-US studies in ocean carbon sinks in the Mediterranean (the MEDFLUX programme). More recently, MEL has been involved in discussion with Gulf Member States for a Marine Radioactivity Baseline Study. Finally, I am pleased to note that our MEL Newsletter is clearly having a positive outreach with Member States, since we are currently witnessing a doubling in Member States requests through the TC Concept Proposals (2007-2008) for fellowships, courses and capacity building in marine environment

    The behaviour of biological systems can be deduced from their mathematical models. However, multiple sources of data in diverse forms are required in the construction of a model in order to define its components and their biochemical reactions, and corresponding parameters. Automating the assembly and use of systems biology models is dependent upon data integration processes involving the interoperation of data and analytical resources. Taverna workflows have been developed for the automated assembly of quantitative parameterised metabolic networks in the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML). A SBML model is built in a systematic fashion by the workflows which starts with the construction of a qualitative network using data from a MIRIAM-compliant genome-scale model of yeast metabolism. This is followed by parameterisation of the SBML model with experimental data from two repositories, the SABIO-RK enzyme kinetics database and a database of quantitative experimental results. The models are then calibrated and simulated in workflows that call out to COPASIWS, the web service interface to the COPASI software application for analysing biochemical networks. These systems biology workflows were evaluated for their ability to construct a parameterised model of yeast glycolysis. Distributed information about metabolic reactions that have been described to MIRIAM standards enables the automated assembly of quantitative systems biology models of metabolic networks based on user-defined criteria. Such data integration processes can be implemented as Taverna workflows to provide a rapid overview of the components and their relationships within a biochemical system.

  5. La memoria alla barocca ne L’isola del giorno prima di Umberto Eco

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Agnieszka Piwowarska

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available In his third novel The Island of the Day Before (L’isola del giorno prima Umberto Eco narrates a story of an unusual castaway named Roberto who – instead of being on a desert island – finishes up on an abandoned (but only at first sight ship. The article aims to analyze how the book’s main character, during his loneliness, reminisces about events from his past. And because the novel is set in the Baroque, Roberto´s memories respect the spirit of that time : numerous flashbacks are evoked by unexpected metaphors that link very distant things. The ship, which is for a young man a cumbersome prison, becomes a real Theatre of Memory, according to Giulio Camillo’s idea.

  6. The Earth's Magnetism: An Introduction for Geologists

    Roberto Lanza and Antonio Meloni Springer; XII + 278 pp.; ISBN: 3-540-27979-2 2006; $79.95. The nature of the geomagnetic field is one of the cornerstones of the study of the geophysical properties of the Earth. Despite the importance of geomagnetism to the understanding of the Earth and to the various subdisciplines of geophysics, and despite its being an essential part of any Earth scientist's education, it has been suggested that most geophysics textbooks and curricula devote only limited attention to the subject. With this in mind, Roberto Lanza and Antonio Meloni have authored The Earth's Magnetism: An Introduction for Geologists with the goal of producing a textbook that would provide a holistic approach to the subject and a general overview of many of the fundamental subjects that compose geomagnetism and its applications to geology. The text is meant to supplement more substantial treatments of various subjects and the geomagnetic literature.

  19. SU-E-J-127: Implementation of An Online Replanning Tool for VMAT Using Flattening Filter-Free Beams

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ates, O; Ahunbay, E; Li, X [Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI (United States)

    2015-06-15

    Purpose: This is to report the implementation of an online replanning tool based on segment aperture morphing (SAM) for VMAT with flattening filter free (FFF) beams. Methods: Previously reported SAM algorithm modified to accommodate VMAT with FFF beams was implemented in a tool that was interfaced with a treatment planning system (Monaco, Elekta). The tool allows (1) to output the beam parameters of the original VMAT plan from Monaco, and (2) to input the apertures generated from the SAM algorithm into Monaco for the dose calculation on daily CT/CBCT/MRI in the following steps:(1) Quickly generating target contour based on the image of the day, using an auto-segmentation tool (ADMIRE, Elekta) with manual editing if necessary; (2) Morphing apertures based on the SAM in the original VMAT plan to account for the interfractional change of the target from the planning to the daily images; (3) Calculating dose distribution for new apertures with the same numbers of MU as in the original plan; (4) Transferring the new plan into a record & verify system (MOSAIQ, Elekta); (5) Performing a pre-delivery QA based on software; (6) Delivering the adaptive plan for the fraction.This workflow was implemented on a 16-CPU (2.6 GHz dual-core) hardware with GPU and was tested for sample cases of prostate, pancreas and lung tumors. Results: The online replanning process can be completed within 10 minutes. The adaptive plans generally have improved the plan quality when compared to the IGRT repositioning plans. The adaptive plans with FFF beams have better normal tissue sparing as compared with those of FF beams. Conclusion: The online replanning tool based on SAM can quickly generate adaptive VMAT plans using FFF beams with improved plan quality than those from the IGRT repositioning plans based on daily CT/CBCT/MRI and can be used clinically. This research was supported by Elekta Inc. (Crawley, UK)

    In response to the request of Member States and under the IAEA's mandate, the IAEA Marine Environment Laboratory (MEL) in Monaco has established and maintains a Global Marine Radioactivity Database (GLOMARD). It is a vast project compiling radionuclide measurements taken in the marine environment. It consists of systematic input of all radionuclide concentration data available for sea water, sediment, biota and suspended matter. The GLOMARD is therefore a powerful tool for the researchers of MEL as it integrates the results of analyses in most of the areas of the marine environment which have been investigated

    Lakes, oceans and seas accumulate sediments. These sediments constitute a file of the last environmental conditions going up in some cases to thousands of years. In our study, we consulted this file by analyzing radioisotopes of Uranium and Thorium that are included in a carrot of marine sediment taken from the south of Mediterranean Sea. When we applied the technique developed by the maritime environment's laboratory of Monaco, we found spectra with bad resolutions. For this reason, the optimization of this protocol appeared necessary. (Author).

    One of the major objectives of the coordinated research programme on Transuranic Cycling Behaviour in the Marine Environment has been to achieve the comparability of the measurement results among the laboratories from different countries participating in the programme. In order to fulfil this objective, the intercalibration exercises of transuranic measurements using sea water and sediment samples were organized by the Monaco Laboratory within the duration of the programme in 1979-1981. The sediment and sea water samples were collected respectively by the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre of India and the Hydrographic Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany. In the present report the results of these intercalibration exercises are surveyed

    On 10 March 1961, the IAEA concluded with the Principality of Monaco and the Oceanographic Institute, then directed by Jacques Cousteau, their first agreement on a research project on the effects of radioactivity in the sea. Fifty years later, that cooperation expanded significantly through collaboration with international and regional organizations, as well as national laboratories. The Laboratories that grew from this initial agreement comprise the only marine laboratory in the United Nations system that undertakes research, while providing training and support services for the study of the oceans and marine environments.

    The procedures developed and currently employed in the Monaco Laboratory for determining transuranic elements in seawater, marine sediments and organisms are described and discussed. While the standard anion-exchange procedure from the hydrochloric acid medium is used for the separation of plutonium isotopes from americium, purification of americium and curium is achieved by an ion-exchange sorption from the methanol-nitric acid medium, followed by an elution with the methanol-hydrochloric acid mixture. Satisfactory clean-up of plutonium as well as americium and curium can be achieved by applying the described procedures. (author)

    Under EPA and ERDA sponsorship, SES successfully designed, fabricated and tested the first federally sponsored steam powered automobile. The automobile - referred to as the simulator - is a 1975 Dodge Monaco standard size passenger car with the SES preprototype Rankine cycle automotive propulsion system mounted in the engine compartment. In the latter half of 1975, the simulator successfully underwent test operations at the facilities of SES in Watertown, Massachusetts and demonstrated emission levels below those of the stringent federally established automotive requirements originally set for implementation by 1976. The demonstration was accomplished during testing over the Federal Driving Cycle on a Clayton chassis dynamometer. The design and performance of the vehicle are described.

    Purpose: To verify the benefits of the biological cost functions. Methods: TG166 patients were used for the test case scenarios. Patients were planned using Monaco V5.0 (CMS/Elekta, St.Louis, MO) Monaco has 3 biological and 8 physical CFs. In this study the plans were optimized using 3 different scenarios. 1- Biological CFs only 2-Physical CFs only 3- Combination of Physical and Biological CFsMonaco has 3 biological CFs. Target EUD used for the targets, derived from the poisson cell kill model, has an α value that controls the cold spots inside the target. α values used in the optimization were 0.5 and 0.8. if cold spots needs to be penalized α value increased. Serial CF: it's called serial to mimic the behaviour of the serial organs, if a high k value like 12 or 14 is used it controls the maximum dose. Serial CF has a k parameter that is used to shape the whole dvh curve. K value ranges between 1–20. k:1 is used to control the mean dose, lower k value controls the mean dose, higher k value controls the higher dose, using 2 serial CFs with different k values controls the whole DVH. Paralel CF controls the percentage of the volume that tolerates higher doses than the reference dose to mimic the behaviour of the paralel organs. Results: It was possible to achive clinically accepted plans in all 3 scenarios. The benefit of the biological cost functions were to control the mean dose for target and OAR, to shape the DVH curve using one EUD value and one k value simplifies the optimization process. Using the biological CFs alone, it was hard to control the dose at a point. Conclusion: Biological CFs in Monaco doesn't require the ntcp/tcp values from the labs and useful to shape the whole dvh curve.

    2018-05-24

    This paper describes the treatment of a mother and child who demonstrated disorganized attachment behaviors in their interactions with one another. The mother, who was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, felt incapable of managing her aggressive toddler and his emotional needs. The dyad was referred for therapy due to concerns about his developmental progress, evident delays having been mainly attributed to the problems observed within the parent-child relationship. The primary intervention applied to working with the dyad was the Group Attachment-Based Intervention (GABI©), developed by Anne Murphy in collaboration with Miriam Steele and Howard Steele. The mother also received individual psychotherapy as a supplement to the dyadic and group work of GABI©. The process and outcome of this comprehensive approach to treating a vulnerable dyad is explored in this case study. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Full Text Available RESUMO: O mundo do teatro de bonecos em Portugal está envolto numa bruma, devido, em parte, a algum desinteresse da classe teatreira, mas principalmente, à escassa documentação sobre esta arte ancestral. O teatro de marionetas popular era pouco palavroso, em oposição ao teatro de atores de carne e osso, onde o verbo era fundamental. O repertório de texto diminuto, transmitido por via oral, levou à perda substancial de um entretenimento que fez os encantos de miúdos e graúdos ao longo dos séculos. Uma das lacunas é a génese dos próprios apodos pelos quais os bonifrates eram conhecidos. Atualmente encontra-se vulgarizado o cognome Dom Roberto (conhecido até 1962 por robertos para designar os bonecos de luva populares portugueses. Este evoluiu a partir do drama de cordel adaptado da lenda medieval Roberto do diabo e que fez parte do repertório do teatro de bonecos populares portugueses. PALAVRAS-CHAVE: Teatro de bonecos, literatura de cordel, folhetos volantes. ________________________ ABSTRACT: The world of puppet theater in Portugal is shrouded in mist, partly due to some disinterest in theater professionals, but mainly due to the scarce documentation about this ancestral art. The popular puppet theater was of few text, as opposed to the actors theater, where the verb was fundamental. The diminutive repertoire of orally transmitted text has led to the substantial loss of entertainment that has made the charms of kids and adults over the centuries. One of the gaps is the genesis of the nicknames for which puppets were known. At the moment the name Dom Roberto (known until 1962 by robertos is popularized to designate the Portuguese glove popular puppets. This evolved from the chapbook drama adapted from the medieval legend Robert the devil and that was part of the repertoire of Portuguese popular puppet theatre.  KEYWORDS: Puppet theater, chapbooks.

  16. Environmental issues and challenges. Tomorrow's Ocean

    1998-01-01

    In this Un Year of the Ocean -1998- multiple activities are focusing the attention of the public, policy-makers, and media on the planet's largest natural resource. As the new millennium approaches, there is an increasing urgency to highlight the ocean's role in a broad range of human activities and to heighten awareness about the need to preserve this vital resource for the future. The health and understanding of the oceans will continue to be of critical concern for the foreseeable future. Among these many activities is a major event, led by the IAEA, to focus attention on the ocean - the International Symposium on Marine Pollution to be held in Monaco. 5-9 October 1998. This article briefly reviews major issues being examined at the Symposium that affect the ocean's health and future, and highlights cooperative initiatives involving and the IAEA and its global partners. Other featured articles in this edition of the IAEA Bulletin present contemporary examples of how the IAEA's Marine Environment Laboratory (MEL) in Monaco is serving the interests of countries in matters pertaining to the quality of the ocean environment. They address not only the activities of MEL itself, but also those organized in association with other IAEA departments, UN agencies and international organizations

  17. Does playing blindfold chess reduce the quality of game: comments on chabris and hearst (2003).

    2010-01-01

    Blindfold chess is a special type of chess game where both the board and pieces are not visible to its players. This paper aims to determine whether the quality of the game played blindfolded is lower than when played under normal conditions. The best chess program was used to analyze games played by the world's top Grandmasters under both conditions. We have analyzed the Monaco 1993-1998 data set introduced by Chabris and Hearst (2003). The results showed that although a larger number of mistakes occurred while playing blindfolded, no significant statistical difference between the rapid and blindfold games has been found. Nevertheless, by applying the same methodology to the Monaco 2002-2007 data set a substantial difference between the blindfold and the rapid chess game was noticed. In this paper, we have addressed the possible improvement of the chess game quality and the advances in chess programs that may be responsible for detecting more blunders.

  18. Disposal of radioactive waste

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    NONE

    1960-01-15

    The problem of disposal can be tackled in two ways: the waste can be diluted and dispersed so that the radiation to which any single individual would be subjected would be negligible, or it can be concentrated and permanently isolated from man and his immediate environment. A variety of methods for the discharge of radioactive waste into the ground were described at the Monaco conference. They range from letting liquid effluent run into pits or wells at appropriately chosen sites to the permanent storage of high activity material at great depth in geologically suitable strata. Another method discussed consists in the incorporation of high level fission products in glass which is either buried or stored in vaults. Waste disposal into rivers, harbours, outer continental shelves and the open sea as well as air disposal are also discussed. Many of the experts at the Monaco conference were of the view that most of the proposed, or actually applied, methods of waste disposal were compatible with safety requirements. Some experts, felt that certain of these methods might not be harmless. This applied to the possible hazards of disposal in the sea. There seemed to be general agreement, however, that much additional research was needed to devise more effective and economical methods of disposal and to gain a better knowledge of the effects of various types of disposal operations, particularly in view of the increasing amounts of waste material that will be produced as the nuclear energy industry expands

    2007-08-01

    Marine Environment Laboratories (MEL) new programmes and strategic outreach efforts (e.g. Mission visits, Newsletter, displays at IAEA's 50th General Conference) have resulted this year in a record number of Marine Technical Co-operation (TC) projects. They increased from 17 in 2006 to 28 in 2007/08 and included 9 regional and 3 interregional projects, now directly benefiting 64 Member States (MS). This is clear evidence of increased interest by Member States to fully utilize the Agency's expertise to better understand and protect their diverse marine environments and resources. I would also like to thank MEL staff for rising to the challenge of supporting these new TC projects. We are also pleased to report that in June 2007, we had a record number of Vienna-based Missions (22 representatives) including the Chairman of the IAEA Board of Governors, the DDG, Mr. W. Burkart, and two Ministers from Monaco visiting MEL in Monaco. The VIP delegates toured MEL's world class laboratories and concluded with a round table discussion on training MS in marine radioactivity and radioecology, on applying new isotopic tools for marine pollution and ocean climate change studies, and on investing in essential equipment at MEL. I am also pleased to report that the IAEA Board of Governors have just approved the replacement of MEL's ageing High Resolution Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) now planned for 2008

    Full Text Available This essay examines the relationship between writing and barbarism in Roberto Bolaño'snovels Estrella distante (1996 and Nocturno de Chile (2000, analyzing how the author portrays the intimate coexistence between art and violence in the context of Chile's military dictatorship. By portraying the world of ultra-right-wing intellectuals and literati, the author expresses the impossibility of fully disentangling literature and barbarism. I argue that Bolaño develops an anti-humanist view of literature which hints at the solidarity between high culture and barbarism, and thus indicates the exhaustion of a redemptive view of literature in Latin America.

    Full Text Available This article proposes the study of the manifestations and meanings of eroticism in The Savage Detectives. Roberto Bolaño's novel can be read from an "erotic anarchy" that is a ritualized exploration of pleasure and, in this sense, is divorced from any connection with reproduction. For Bolaño, eros is a force that liberalizes men and women, transgressing cultural and economic patterns of hegemonic discourses. Thence the intense, varied and disruptive erotic wanderingreal visceralistas poets and lovers in The Savage Detectives.

Starting with the hypothesis that his narrative elaborates a revalorization of the poetic, this work investigates the procedures and models of the mentioned construction.

The article discusses not only the literary construction of Bolaño's characters, but the transformation of Bolano himself in a literary figure.

    Quisiéramos, en respuesta a Jean-Luc Nancy, arriesgar un desarrollo de la cuestión de la comunidad que, a su vez, nos permita resignificar la individualidad y la inmanencia. En otras palabras, se trata de rearticular individuo y comunidad desde nuevos supuestos. La cuestión es retomar el tono extático que demanda Nancy, esa figura del exceso propuesta por Bataille, y evidenciarlo en el modelo que propone Gilbert Simondon para la individuación, y Roberto Esposito para la communitas.

  13. Taking the pulse of the Mediterranean

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Osterberg, C.

    1977-01-01

    The staff at the International Laboratory of Marine Radioactivity in Monaco realized that they were favourably located to ?take the pulse of the Mediterranean? and begin an enquiry into its health. Practically all of the radioactivity in the water and sediments could be attributed to world-wide fallout from the nuclear tests of the 1960's. Unable to find enough radioactivity in the Mediterranean to work with in a meaningful way, the laboratory imported sediments from the Bikini-Eniwetok sites of the American thermonuclear tests, and sediments from the Irish Sea near the Windscale effluent pipe to do their experiments. Other experiments were carried out with relatively innocuous, short half-lived 237 Pu, made especially for the laboratory in Japan and in the USA. A proposal was made to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to monitor the levels of chlorinated hydrocarbons and heavy elements in the Mediterranean. This report briefly discusses that work. Three sets of studies were carried out by the Monaco group to assess the current levels of pollutants in the Mediterranean: 1) Radioactivity; 2) Chlorinated hydrocarbons (DDT's and polychlorinated biphenyls); 3) Heavy elements. As stated earlier, measurements showed that radioactivity in the ocean off Monaco is quite low, indicating that there are no major sources of radionuclides reaching the open ocean other than fallout. Polychlorinated biphenyls were measured by gas-chromatography. The results of this study were being published (Marine Pollution Bulletin, 1977) but it can be said that the data are not much different than that for the Atlantic Ocean and Saragasso Sea. The western Mediterranean is clearly higher in PCB's than the eastern Mediterranean, but not unduly so. Less can be said about the trace or heavy elements because the patterns are so variable. Atomic absorption spectrometry is used to detect and measure most trace elements. For the lower levels that appear in seawater, chemical

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Matijević, Mario; Pevec, Dubravko; Trontl, Krešimir

    2015-01-01

    Highlights: • Shielding analysis of the typical PWR primary loop components was performed. • FW-CADIS methodology was thoroughly investigated using SCALE6.0 code package. • Versatile ability of SCALE6.0/FW-CADIS for deep penetration models was proved. • The adjoint source with focus on specific material can improve MC modeling. - Abstract: The SCALE6.0 simulation model of a typical PWR primary loop components for effective dose rates calculation based on hybrid deterministic–stochastic methodology was created. The criticality sequence CSAS6/KENO-VI of the SCALE6.0 code package, which includes KENO-VI Monte Carlo code, was used for criticality calculations, while neutron and gamma dose rates distributions were determined by MAVRIC/Monaco shielding sequence. A detailed model of a combinatorial geometry, materials and characteristics of a generic two loop PWR facility is based on best available input data. The sources of ionizing radiation in PWR primary loop components included neutrons and photons originating from critical core and photons from activated coolant in two primary loops. Detailed calculations of the reactor pressure vessel and the upper reactor head have been performed. The efficiency of particle transport for obtaining global Monte Carlo dose rates was further examined and quantified with a flexible adjoint source positioning in phase-space. It was demonstrated that generation of an accurate importance map (VR parameters) is a paramount step which enabled obtaining Monaco dose rates with fairly uniform uncertainties. Computer memory consumption by the S N part of hybrid methodology represents main obstacle when using meshes with large number of cells together with high S N /P N parameters. Detailed voxelization (homogenization) process in Denovo together with high S N /P N parameters is essential for precise VR parameters generation which will result in optimized MC distributions. Shielding calculations were also performed for the reduced PWR

    2015-01-01

    Purposes: There has been growing interest in treating breast cancer using VMAT technique. Our goal is to compare the dosimetry and treatment delivery parameters for the left-sided breast cancer treatment using various VMAT platforms from commercially available planning systems. Methods: Five consecutive left-sided breast cancer patients initially treated with conventional 3D-conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) were selected. Four VMAT plans using most popular treatment planning systems, including Eclipse (Version 11, Varian), Pinnacle (Version 9.8, Philips), Monaco (Version 2.03, Elekta) and helical Tomotherapy (V4.0, Accuray). The same structure set and same planning goals were used for all VMAT plans. The dosimetric parameters including target coverage and minimum/maximum/mean, dose-volume endpoints for the selected normal structures: the heart, ipsilateral-/contralateral lung and breast, were evaluated. Other dosimetric indices including heterogeneity index (HI) were evaluated. The treatment delivery parameters, such as monitor unit (MUs) and delivery time were also compared. Results: VMAT increases dose homogeneity to the treated volume and reduces the irradiated heart and left-lung volumes. Compared to the 3DCRT technique, all VMAT plans offer better heart and left-lung dose sparing; the mean heart doses were 4.5±1.6(Monaco), 1.2±0.4(Pinnacle), 1.3± (Eclipse) and 5.6±4.4(Tomo), the mean left-lung doses were 5.9±1.5(Monaco), 3.7±0.7(Pinnacle), 1.4± (Eclipse) and 5.2±1.6 (Tomo), while for the 3DCRT plan, the mean heart and left-Lung doses were 2.9±2.0, and 6.8±4.4 (Gy) respectively. The averaged contralateral-breast and lung mean doses were higher in VMAT plans than the 3DCRT plans but were not statistically significant. Among all the VMAT plans, the Pinnacle plans often yield the lowest right-lung/breast mean doses, and slightly better heterogeneity indices that are similar to Tomotherapy plans. Treatment delivery time of the VMAT plans (except helical

    Purpose: To compare the performances of four commercial treatment planning systems (TPS) used for the intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). Methods: Ten patients of nasopharyngeal (4 cases), esophageal (3 cases) and cervical (3 cases) cancer were randomly selected from a 3-month IMRT plan pool at one radiotherapy center. For each patient, four IMRT plans were newly generated by using four commercial TPS (Corvus, Monaco, Pinnacle and Xio), and then verified with Matrixx (two-dimensional array/IBA Company) on Varian23EX accelerator. A pass rate (PR) calculated from the Gamma index by OminiPro IMRT 1.5 software was evaluated at four plan verification standards (1%/1mm, 2%/2mm, 3%/3mm, 4%/4mm and 5%/5mm) for each treatment plan. Overall and multiple pairwise comparisons of PRs were statistically conducted by analysis of covariance (ANOVA) F and LSD tests among four TPSs. Results: Overall significant (p>0.05) differences of PRs were found among four TPSs with F test values of 3.8 (p=0.02), 21.1(>0.01), 14.0 (>0.01), 8.3(>0.01) at standards of 1%/1mm to 4%/4mm respectively, except at 5%/5mm standard with 2.6 (p=0.06). All means (standard deviation) of PRs at 3%/3mm of 94.3 ± 3.3 (Corvus), 98.8 ± 0.8 (Monaco), 97.5± 1.7 (Pinnacle), 98.4 ± 1.0 (Xio) were above 90% and met clinical requirement. Multiple pairwise comparisons had not demonstrated a consistent low or high pattern on either TPS. Conclusion: Matrixx dose verification results show that the validation pass rates of Monaco and Xio plans are relatively higher than those of the other two; Pinnacle plan shows slight higher pass rate than Corvus plan; lowest pass rate was achieved by the Corvus plan among these four kinds of TPS.

  17. Our Changing Oceans: All about Ocean Acidification

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Rickwood, Peter

    2013-01-01

    The consequences of ocean acidification are global in scale. More research into ocean acidification and its consequences is needed. It is already known, for example, that there are regional differences in the vulnerability of fisheries to acidification. The combination of other factors, such as global warming, the destruction of habitats, overfishing and pollution, need to be taken into account when developing strategies to increase the marine environment’s resilience. Among steps that can be taken to reduce the impact is better protection of marine coastal ecosystems, such as mangrove swamps and seagrass meadows, which will help protect fisheries. This recommendation was one of the conclusions of a three-day workshop attended by economists and scientists and organized by the IAEA and the Centre Scientifique de Monaco in November 2012. In their recommendations the workshop also stressed that the impact of increasing ocean acidity must be taken into account in the management of fisheries, particularly where seafood is a main dietary source

    Multi-element and isotopic analyses of oils and marine environmental samples were carried out to estimate a contamination source using a 'finger printing' method. Elemental analyses were carried out using neutron-induced prompt gamma-ray analysis (PGA), instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) at the Japan Atomic Institute, Tokai-mura, Japan (JAERI) and ICP-MS in the IAEA Marine Environment Laboratory, Monaco (MEL). Fifteen elements including light elements, H, B, N, Si and Ca, which cannot be determined by INAA and ICP-MS, were determined by PGA. A total of 47 elements were determined in the present study. The potential of PGA for the determination of isotopic ratios was tested by measuring 34 S/ 32 S ratios in oils. The evaluation of historical records of marine environmental conditions using annual bands in coral samples was also investigated. (author)

    Reconstructing of hydroclimate in the Mediterranean on an orbital time scale helps improve our understanding of interaction between orbital forcing and north hemisphere climate. We collected 180 speleothem subsamples from Observatoire Cave (Monaco), Prince Cave (south France), Chateaueuf Cave (South France), Arago Cave (South France), and Basura Cave (North Italy) during 2013 to 2015 C.E. Uranium-thorium dating were conducted in the High-Precision Mass Spectrometry and Environment Change Laboratory (HISPEC), National Taiwan University. The results show that most of the speleothem formed during interglacial periods, particularly in marine isotope stage (MIS) 1, 5, and 11. However, only a few speleothem were dated between 180 to 250 thousand years ago (ka). The interval is approximately equivalent to MIS 7, which is a period with contrasting orbital parameters compared to MIS1, 5, and 11. Our statistical dating result implies that the orbital-scale humid/dry condition in southern Europe could be dominantly controlled by orbital forcing.

    A variety of methods for the discharge of radioactive wastes into the ground, into water and into the air were described at an international conference in Monaco in November 1959, organized by IAEA jointly with UNESCO and with the co-operation of FAO. Many of the experts at the conference were of the view that most of the proposed, or actually applied, methods of waste disposal were compatible with safety requirements. Some differences of opinion existed about disposal into the sea. It was generally agreed that much additional research was necessary for devising the most effective and economical methods of disposal and gaining a better knowledge of the effects of the various types of disposal operations.

Soil, botanical, productive and economic (competitiveness gap parameters have been monitored. In the short term, the Standard 4.1 showed its effectiveness on soil quality, biomass productivity and competitiveness gap in both case studies. Botanical parameters showed differing results, therefore their generalization is not applicable to the heterogeneity of the pasture land Italian system. Shallow soil tillage could be suggested, every 40-50 years, when an appropriate soil organic matter content and the absence of runoff phenomena occur.

    The Consistent Adjoint Driven Importance Sampling (CADIS) is a methodology that basically uses source biasing and a mesh-based importance map. Therefore, to make the best use of an importance map, the map must be consistent with the source biasing. To achieve this consistency, a Sn calculation could be made to improve the importance map and the computational performance. The MAVRIC (Monaco with Automated Variance Reduction using Importance Calculations) code does that and this work intends to study the code options to generate the importance map. A pool type 10 MW research reactor was designed in a simple way just to study the prompt gamma rays penetration in the concrete and therefore study the CADIS methodology applied to point detectors and mesh tallies. By keeping constant the simulation time and the CPU (Central Processing Unit) power a significant improvement was achieved in the relative errors for the point detectors and for the mesh tally.

    In order to supplement the baseline data on the distribution of transuranic elements in the Mediterranean, which have already been reported, further measurements were carried out on sea water samples collected during 1974-75 cruises. In 1974 profile collections were conducted at a station approximately 50 km south of Monaco in addition to surface sampling at a few stations, while surface waters were taken from several stations covering wider regions of the western Mediterranean during the 1975 cruises. The measurement of 238 Pu as well as 241 Am were for the first time successful on the 1975 samples. These data are considered valuable as the basis for understanding transuranic biogeochemistry in the Mediterranean environment

    The IAEA has been distributing calibrated radioisotope solutions, standard reference materials and intercomparison materials since the early 1960's. The purpose of this activity has been to help laboratories in its member states to assess and, if necessary, to improve the reliability of their analytical work in the field of nuclear technology and of isotope utilisation. The scope and the size of this programme which is co-ordinated by the chemistry section of the Agency's laboratory at Seibersdorf but receives input also from other sections of the Agency, including the International Laboratory of Marine Radioactivity at Monaco, has been delineated by several panels of experts and consultant's meetings which have made detailed recommendations in their areas of expertise. It is on the basis of these recommendations that the programme has developed, changed its emphasis, and grown over the years since its inception.

    A Co-ordinated Research Programme (CRP) on assessment of environmental exposure to mercury in selected human populations as studied by nuclear and other techniques was initiated by the IAEA in 1990. The purpose of this CRP is to promote national and regional studies to evaluate the exposure of selected population groups to mercury and methylmercury and to estimate potential risks in these groups. The programme is focused on the analysis of human head hair for the determination of mercury and methylmercury. The CRP has two main components: (i) identifying population groups that are at risk, and (ii) studying health effects in the exposed persons, particularly pregnant women and the babies born to them. This document reports the discussions held during the third Research Co-ordination Meeting (RCM) for the CRP which took place at the IAEA, Monaco Laboratory. (author)

    The marine environment - understanding and protecting for the future were at the forefront of the International Symposium on Marine Pollution convened in Monaco from 5 to 9 October 1998, as one of the major events of the UN International Year of the Oceans. New achievements were reported in identifying the sources of pollution, on the behaviour and fate of contaminants in seawater, biota and sediments, on the use of radioactive and non-radioactive tracers for studies of transport and circulation processes in the world's oceans and seas, on studies of radioactive waste dumping sites and nuclear weapons test sites, on local, regional and global computer modelling of the transport of contaminants and on many other topics in marine pollution. New developments in high sensitivity analytical measurements of contaminants with emphasis on nuclear and isotopic methods were also presented.

    A number of investigations of trace elements in the waters, organisms and sediments of the Adriatic, using neutron activation analysis with radiochemical separations are reported. These include studies of Hg in mussels from the Northern Adriatic, of Hg and Se in edible animals from the Rijeka region, and of seven elements (As, Cd, Cu, Hg, Mn, Se and Zn) in marine invertebrates from the Slovene coast. Additionally, plankton, sediment cores and water samples were taken from a grid of stations covering the whole Adriatic and analyzed for 6 to 11 of the trace elements As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Sb and Zn (Hg only in water). Generally, levels found were not indicative of pollution as compared with oceanic samples, but some evidence of locally increased levels was found, especially for Hg. The levels of eleven trace elements in three marine Intercomparison samples prepared by the IAEA Monaco Laboratory are also presented. (T.G.)

    The consequences of ocean acidification are global in scale. More research into ocean acidification and its consequences is needed. It is already known, for example, that there are regional differences in the vulnerability of fisheries to acidification. The combination of other factors, such as global warming, the destruction of habitats, overfishing and pollution, need to be taken into account when developing strategies to increase the marine environment's resilience. Among steps that can be taken to reduce the impact is better protection of marine coastal ecosystems, such as mangrove swamps and seagrass meadows, which will help protect fisheries. This recommendation was one of the conclusions of a three-day workshop attended by economists and scientists and organized by the IAEA and the Centre Scientifique de Monaco in November 2012. In their recommendations the workshop also stressed that the impact of increasing ocean acidity must be taken into account in the management of fisheries, particularly where seafood is a main dietary source.

    Following preparation of reference materials 1 through 4 (1. Oyster homogenate (MA-M-1), 2. Sea Plant homogenate (SP-M-1), 3. Sediment (SD-M-1), 4. XAD-2 resin (AB-M-1)), homogeneity tests were conducted at the Monaco Laboratory by analyzing sample sizes that would yield sufficient amounts of organochlorine compounds for quantitation. In the case of the oyster sample, 10 samples weighing 10 grams each showed acceptable homogeneity for all compounds determined, i.e. a standard deviation of ≈ ± 20% from the mean value obtained. The highest standard deviation was observed for pp'DDE (23%) while the lowest standard deviation was recorded for pp'DDT (2.8%)

    Tropospheric ozone is an important air pollutant with known detrimental effects for several crops. Ozone effects on seed yield, oil percentage, oil yield and 1000 seed weight were examined for spring oilseed rape ( Brassica napus cv. Ability). For broccoli ( Brassica oleracea L. cv. Italica cv. Monaco) the effects on fresh marketable weight and total dry weight were studied. Current ozone levels were compared with an increase of 20 and 40 ppb during 8 h per day, over the entire growing season. Oilseed rape seed yield was negatively correlated with ozone dose indices calculated from emergence until harvest. This resulted in an R2 of 0.24 and 0.26 ( p broccoli the applied ozone doses had no effect on yield.

  18. Collection and preparation of samples for Agency's programme of intercalibration methods and procedures for measurement of environmental radioactivity

    In the period of 1971-1975 several samples of marine sediment and organisms were collected from the Bombay Harbour Bay as well as from the vicinity of the Tarapur nuclear power station in order to supply the materials for preparing intercalibration samples for radionuclides measurements. All samples collected were freeze-dried and homogenized prior to the dispatch to the Monaco Laboratory, where final homogenization and the homogeneity tests were carried out. Altogether 2 marine organisms and 3 marine sediments were supplied during this period. The materials supplied were proved to be useful to prepare intercalibration samples for radionuclide measurements in the levels for monitoring operations. Based on these materials several intercalibration exercises were successfully conducted. This work thus formed a basis for bringing the better comparability of radionuclide measurements in marine environmental samples in an international scale

  19. TAX HAVENS IN THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CENTERS INDEX

    Full Text Available Previously scrutinized for adopting harmful fiscal measures, tax havens have progressively adhered to the internationally agreed principles of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes promoted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD. In this respect, important amendments have been made to both their tax and commercial legislation. Their main competitive advantage remains the favorable fiscal systems characterized by 0% tax rates which have favored the development of well established financial services sectors. The aim of this paper is to analyze the fiscal framework offered by six former tax haven jurisdictions: Monaco, Jersey, Guernsey, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man and British Virgin Islands, which occupy high ranks in the Global Financial Centers Index. The results come to emphasize the importance of these jurisdictions’ tax systems in the development of strong financial sectors.

    Since zooplankton fecal pellets and molts are major vectors in the vertical transport of zinc in the sea, analyses have been made also for other trace metals in these particulate products. Euphausiids and pelagic shrimp were collected live off the Monaco coast by taking several short oblique tows with an Issacs-Kidd midwater trawl. Animals were placed in clean sea water, sorted according to species and immediately transported to the laboratory in plastic containers filled with filtered sea water taken at the collection site. Samples of microplankton, which serve as food for the macroplankton were also taken. Elemental concentrations in whole euphausiids and shrimp were measured. It was observed that molt analyses strongly support the contention that crustacean molts play an important role in the transport of metals and radionuclides in marine ecosystems. Molts can release metals to the water column or sediments upon decomposition or serve as a rich source of metals for organisms of other trophic levels which ingest them
