    Full Text Available El estudio analiza los distintos proyectos de modernización ocurridos en la Facultad de Medicina de San Fernando, en el contexto de una seria crisis institucional a finales del siglo XX. Para ello, a partir de las categorías de colectivo de pensamiento y estilo de pensamiento propuestos por Ludwick Fleck, se hace un estudio de los procesos socio-históricos relacionados con los distintas iniciativas desplegadas en la más antigua escuela de medicina del Perú. Un análisis de las diferentes iniciativas identificadas nos llevan a la hipótesis de que la crisis de San Fernando, como colectivo académico, se basa en las contradicciones propias de un proyecto institucional inconcluso, que además cíclicamente se manifiesta asincrónico y disfuncional, al complejo y cambiante entorno institucional y cultural de la sociedad peruana. El estudio sistematiza las principales características de los diferentes proyectos de modernización institucional. Luego de un análisis del actual contexto del sector salud peruano, a partir de los procesos identificados, se propone una agenda de desarrollo, orientada a generar un ciclo de acumulación y crecimiento académico, que constituya una etapa de transición de cara a los retos que el siglo XXI plantea a los miembros del colectivo San Fernandino.

    Industry seismic reflection data, oil test well data, interpretation of gravity and magnetic data, and seismic refraction deep-crustal profiles provide new perspectives on the subsurface geology of San Fernando Valley, home of two of the most recent damaging earthquakes in southern California. Seismic reflection data provide depths to Miocene–Quaternary horizons; beneath the base of the Late Miocene Modelo Formation are largely nonreflective rocks of the Middle Miocene Topanga and older formations. Gravity and seismic reflection data reveal the North Leadwell fault zone, a set of down-to-the-north faults that does not offset the top of the Modelo Formation; the zone strikes northwest across the valley, and may be part of the Oak Ridge fault system to the west. In the southeast part of the valley, the fault zone bounds a concealed basement high that influenced deposition of the Late Miocene Tarzana fan and may have localized damage from the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Gravity and seismic refraction data indicate that the basin underlying San Fernando Valley is asymmetric, the north part of the basin (Sylmar subbasin) reaching depths of 5–8 km. Magnetic data suggest a major boundary at or near the Verdugo fault, which likely started as a Miocene transtensional fault, and show a change in the dip sense of the fault along strike. The northwest projection of the Verdugo fault separates the Sylmar subbasin from the main San Fernando Valley and coincides with the abrupt change in structural style from the Santa Susana fault to the Sierra Madre fault. The Simi Hills bound the basin on the west and, as defined by gravity data, the boundary is linear and strikes ~N45°E. That northeast-trending gravity gradient follows both the part of the 1971 San Fernando aftershock distribution called the Chatsworth trend and the aftershock trends of the 1994 Northridge earthquake. These data suggest that the 1971 San Fernando and 1994 Northridge earthquakes reactivated portions of

    The city of San Fernando sits atop a structurally complex, sedimentologically diverse, and tectonically evolving late Tertiary-Quaternary basin situated within the Transverse Ranges of southern California. The surrounding San Fernando Valley (SFV) contains the headwaters of the Los Angeles River and its tributaries. Prior to the advent of flood control, the valley floor was composed of active alluvial fans and floodplains. Seasonal streams emanating from Pacoima and Big Tujunga Canyons drain the complex western San Gabriel Mountains and deposit coarse, highly permeable alluvium that contains generally high-quality ground water. The more shallow western part derives mainly from Tertiary and pre-Tertiary sedimentary rocks, and is underlain by less permeable, fine-grained deposits containing persistent shallow ground water and poorer water quality. Home of the 1971 San Fernando and the 1994 Northridge earthquakes, the SFV experienced near-record levels of strong ground motion in 1994 that caused widespread damage from strong shaking and ground failure. A new map of late Quaternary deposits of the San Fernando area shows that the SFV is a structural trough that has been filled from the sides, with the major source of sediment being large drainages in the San Gabriel Mountains. Deposition on the major alluvial fan of Tujunga Wash and Pacoima Wash, which issues from the San Gabriel Mountains, and on smaller fans, has been influenced by ongoing compressional tectonics in the valley. Late Pleistocene deposits have been cut by active faults and warped over growing folds. Holocene alluvial fans are locally ponded behind active uplifts. The resulting complex pattern of deposits has a major effect on liquefaction hazards. Young sandy sediments generally are highly susceptible to liquefaction where they are saturated, but the distribution of young deposits, their grain size characteristics, and the level of ground water all are complexly dependent on the tectonics of the valley

    Full Text Available La Facultad de Medicina de San Fernando no solo es la escuela galénica más antigua de nuestro país, sino además es una de las pocas instituciones peruanas que pueden ufanarse de una existencia continua, que se aproxima al bicentenario. Durante una vida institucional tan dilatada, en un país como el Perú, con una rica y secular tradición en la confección de medallas, era de esperarse que algunos de sus principales acontecimientos hayan quedado perennizados por medio de ejemplares conmemorativos. Es gracias a la medallística, es decir, aquella rama de la numismática que estudia todo lo concerniente a las medallas, que podemos darlos a conocer a los peruanos en general, y a la comunidad sanfernandina en particular, a la par de perpetuarlos en estas páginas.

    2012-01-01

    Groundwater quality in the approximately 460-square-mile San Fernando--San Gabriel (FG) study unit was investigated as part of the Priority Basin Project of the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program. The study area is in Los Angeles County and includes Tertiary-Quaternary sedimentary basins situated within the Transverse Ranges of southern California. The GAMA Priority Basin Project is being conducted by the California State Water Resources Control Board in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The GAMA FG study was designed to provide a spatially unbiased assessment of the quality of untreated (raw) groundwater in the primary aquifer systems (hereinafter referred to as primary aquifers) throughout California. The assessment is based on water-quality and ancillary data collected in 2005 by the USGS from 35 wells and on water-quality data from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) database. The primary aquifers were defined by the depth interval of the wells listed in the CDPH database for the FG study unit. The quality of groundwater in primary aquifers may be different from that in the shallower or deeper water-bearing zones; shallow groundwater may be more vulnerable to surficial contamination. This study assesses the status of the current quality of the groundwater resource by using data from samples analyzed for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, and naturally occurring inorganic constituents, such as major ions and trace elements. This status assessment is intended to characterize the quality of groundwater resources in the primary aquifers of the FG study unit, not the treated drinking water delivered to consumers by water purveyors.

    The Cactus-San Fernando gas pipeline system is 650 km in length and was constructed in the late 1970s. The system transports more than 1100 million standard cubic feet per day of dry natural gas to electricity generators in Mexico. This paper described a project undertaken to re-validate the pipeline and demonstrate the future integrity of the pipeline system and ensure that it was suitable for operation to 1219 psig. Pipeline sections were inspected using high resolution magnetic flux leakage (MFL) in-line inspection (ILI) tools, and inertial mapping unit vehicles equipped with global positioning surveys (GPS). The combined inspections allowed the project team to accurately identify features of the pipeline that required repairs. External and internal corrosion were identified as the most prevalent defects. RSTRENG methodologies were used to investigate the interaction of individual corrosion anomalies. Corrosion patterns were compared, and above-ground survey data were used to establish the causes of both the external and internal corrosion, as well as to establish future corrosion growth rates. Decision tree analysis was then used to analyze the growth rates and to identify statistical differences between corrosion growth rates as a function of distance along the pipeline. After the ILI reports were generated, an integrity assessment was then conducted to identify necessary repair options. Repairs plans were then developed along with recommended re-inspection intervals for each section. After the integrity assessments were accepted by a certification company, field work was conducted to locate and measure defects. Defects characteristic of major volumetric welding flaws introduced during pipeline construction were identified and repaired with an epoxy sleeve technique. It was concluded that repairs needed to operate the pipeline at the requested pressure were accomplished within a period of 8 months. 7 refs., 2 tabs., 4 figs.

  9. On the coherence of ground motion in the San Fernando valley

    Hough, S.E.; Field, E.H.

    1996-01-01

    We present an analysis of the coherence of seismic ground motion recorded on alluvial sediments in the San Fernando Valley, California. Using aftershocks of the 17 January 1994 Mw6.7 earthquake recorded at a quasi-dense array of portable stations, we analyze the coherence of three well-recorded magnitude 3.7 to 4.0 events over the frequency range 0.5 to 15 Hz and a distance range of 0.5 to 5.3 km. All stations are located at sites with broadly similar near-site geology, characterized by medium to fine-grain Quaternary alluvial sediments. On average, relatively high values of coherence are observed for distances up to 3 to 4 km and frequencies up to 2 to 3 Hz; coherence drops sharply at frequencies near and above 3 Hz. Although average coherence functions are described reasonably well by a log-linear relationship with frequency, the curves at all distances exhibit a flattening at low frequencies that is not consistent with previous observations of coherence at hardrock sites. The distance decay of coherence is also markedly less strong, with high coherence values observed over station separations corresponding to multiple wavelengths. This may reflect fundamental differences in shallow-wave propagation in the two environments, with high-frequency scattering relatively more dominant in regions of hard-rock near-surface geology. Within a sedimentary basin or valley, the site response itself generally reflects a resonance phenomenon that may tend to give rise to more uniform ground motions. However, previous studies have demonstrated the existence of pathological focusing and amplification effects within complex sedimentary basin environments such as the greater Los Angeles region; our results undoubtedly do not quantify the full range of ground-motion variability at all sites, but rather represent the level of that variability that can be expected, and quantified, for typical source/receiver paths.

    2007-01-01

    We present an original method of digitizing and astrometrically reducing "Carte du Ciel" plate material using an inexpensive flatbed scanner, to demonstrate that for this material there is an alternative to more specialized measuring machines that are very few in number and thus not readily available. The sample of plates chosen to develop this method are original "Carte du Ciel" plates of the San Fernando zone, photographic material with a mean epoch 1903.6, and a limiting photographic magnitude ~14.5, covering the declination range of -10 < dec < -2. Digitization has been made using a commercial flatbed scanner, demonstrating the internal precision that can be attained with such a device. A variety of post-scan corrections are shown to be necessary. In particular, the large distortion introduced by the non-uniform action of the scanner is modelled using multiple scans of each plate. We also tackle the specific problems associated with the triple-exposure images on some plates and the grid lines presen...

    Procedures for analyzing the potential of solar photovoltaic collectors to meet energy requirements in a metropolitan region are described and a modeling effort is applied to the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles. The procedure involves a series of steps designed to produce maps and tabulations revealing the amount of rooftop area available for establishing solar collectors and the proportion of energy requirement that could be potentially supplied by solar photovoltaics within each of the 533 mainline feeder service areas in the study area. For the sixty five square mile study area, the results showed that, with half the available flat and south facing roofs used and assuming the availability of energy storage, 52.7 percent of the actual kWh energy requirements could have been met in 1978 using photovoltaic collectors. Hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly fluctuations in potential supply and actual loads and recommendations of avenues for further research are discussed. Some further potential applications of the modeling technique are suggested.

    The historic plates of the "Carte du Ciel", an international cooperative project launched in 1887, offer valuable first-epoch material for the determination of absolute proper motions. We present the CdC-SF, an astrometric catalogue of positions and proper motions derived from the "Carte du Ciel" plates of the San Fernando zone, photographic material with a mean epoch of 1901.4 and a limiting magnitude of V~16, covering the declination range of -10deg < declination < -2deg. Digitization has been made using a conventional flatbed scanner. Special techniques have been developed to handle the combination of plate material and the large distortion introduced by the scanner. The equatorial coordinates are on the ICRS defined by Tycho-2, and proper motions are derived using UCAC2 as second-epoch positions. The result is a catalogue with positions and proper motions for 560000 stars, covering 1080 degrees squared. The mean positional uncertainty is 0.20" (0.12" for well-measured stars) and the proper-motion un...

    A bobcat was found recently killed on "Highway 101" near the town of San Fernando, Tamaulipas State, Mexico (100 km south of Brownsville, TX, U.S.A.). The cat (Lynx rufus texensis) was parasitized by several species of nematodes and trematodes, but mainly by a cestode, Echinococcus oligarthrus. The diagnostic characteristics of this cestode are described and illustrated. E. oligarthrus has not been reported previously in North America. This is the first time that the strobilar stage has been recovered from a "bobcat". A potential public health problem may be raised by the presence of this cestode in Mexico.

    Ground-water quality in the approximately 460 square mile San Fernando-San Gabriel study unit (SFSG) was investigated between May and July 2005 as part of the Priority Basin Assessment Project of the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program. The GAMA Priority Basin Assessment Project was developed in response to the Groundwater Quality Monitoring Act of 2001 and is being conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). The San Fernando-San Gabriel study was designed to provide a spatially unbiased assessment of raw ground-water quality within SFSG, as well as a statistically consistent basis for comparing water quality throughout California. Samples were collected from 52 wells in Los Angeles County. Thirty-five of the wells were selected using a spatially distributed, randomized grid-based method to provide statistical representation of the study area (grid wells), and seventeen wells were selected to aid in the evaluation of specific water-quality issues or changes in water chemistry along a historic ground-water flow path (understanding wells). The ground-water samples were analyzed for a large number of synthetic organic constituents [volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides and pesticide degradates], constituents of special interest [perchlorate, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), 1,2,3-trichloropropane (1,2,3-TCP), and 1,4-dioxane], naturally occurring inorganic constituents (nutrients, major and minor ions, and trace elements), radioactive constituents, and microbial indicators. Naturally occurring isotopes (tritium, and carbon-14, and stable isotopes of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon), and dissolved noble gases also were measured to help identify the source and age of the sampled ground water. Quality-control samples (blanks, replicates, samples for matrix spikes) were collected at approximately one-fifth (11 of 52) of the wells, and the results for these

    Full Text Available The recent restoration of canvases painted by García Reinoso to commemorate the canonization of Ferdinand III, the Saint, in Córdoba Cathedral allows not only for the appreciation of the original quality of these works, but also contributes invaluable data for determining their exact chronology. The painted production of this artist, known primarily for his abilities as a draughtsman, is thereby brought into focus, given that very few of his paintings are known, particularly from his mature period. This article offers an iconographical study of the series and interprets certain themes that until now have not been fully addressed in the scholarly literature.

    La reciente restauración de los lienzos pintados por García Reinoso para conmemorar la canonización de Fernando III el Santo en la Catedral de Córdoba, no sólo ha servido para poder admirar las obras en sus calidades originarias, sino que también han aportado datos imprescindibles para fijar su exacta cronología; trayendo a primer plano de la actualidad la pintura de este artista, mayormente conocido por sus cualidades como dibujante, conociéndose suyas muy pocas obras pictóricas, en particular de su momento de madurez. En este artículo se aborda el estudio iconográfico de la serie, procediéndose a la interpretación de unos temas que hasta el momento habían sido tratados bastante desigualmente.

El estudio de caso está dirigido a la misión de San Fernando, integrada por abipones. Sus orígenes datan de 1750 en el actual territorio de la ciudad argentina de Resistencia, en la provincia del Chaco. Entre los objetivos de su fundación existía el plan de evangelizar a los nativos y a la vez proteger a la ciudad de Corrientes de los avances de estas etnias. Más allá de las dificultade económicas, climáticas y de los conflictos interétnicos existentes partimos de la idea de que dicho poblado tuvo un relativo éxito. Intentaremos demostrar estas ideas a partir algunas fuentes jesuíticas. Nos referimos específicamente a las cartas del misionero José Klein, quien estuvo a cargo de la reducción en sus últimos años y mantuvo interesante correspondencia con el Colegio de Corrientes, de Buenos Aires y de Asunción. Los detallados inventarios realizados en el mes de agosto de 1767 a partir de la expulsión, y las cartas mencionadas se transforman en interesantes fuentes para el abordaje de la temática y la aproximación desde la visión jesuítica al mejor conocimiento del funcionamiento interno y externo de las reducciones.

    The epicenter location before earthquake is very important. We investigated the characteristics of the ULF electromagnetic emissions, which were observed by an east-west chain at Kashi, Anxi, and Beijing stations before the ML = 7.1 Hetian earthquake, Xingjiang, China, on November 19, 1996. We define the polarization angle as the angle between the east direction of the geomagnetic field and the major axis of the polarization ellipse, which is obtained by the filtered data of two horizontal components. The source of ULF electromagnetic emissions before earthquake is probably coming from the direction perpendicularly to the polarization major axis of earthquake related emissions. We located the source as the cross of two source directions that were obtained at Kashi and Anxi station on November 18, 1996. The estimated source is consistent with the epicenter of the Hetian event.

    News coverage showing collapsed buildings, broken bridges and smashed cars help middle school students visualize the hazardous nature of earthquakes. However, few students understand how scientists investigate earthquakes through analysis of data collected using technology devices from around the world. The important findings by Muawia Barazangi and James Dorman in 1969 revealed how earthquakes charted between 1961 and 1967 delineated narrow belts of seismicity. This important discovery prompted additional research that eventually led to the theory of plate tectonics. When a large earthquake occurs, people from distances near and far can feel it to varying degrees. But how do scientists examine data to identify the locations of earthquake epicenters? The scientific definition of an earthquake: "a movement within the Earth's crust or mantle, caused by the sudden rupture or repositioning of underground material as they release stress" can be confusing for students first studying Earth science in 6th grade. Students struggle with understanding how scientists can tell when and where a rupture occurs, when the inner crust and mantle are not visible to us. Our CyberTEAM project provides 6th grade teachers with the opportunity to engage adolescents in activities that make textbooks come alive as students manipulate the same data that today's scientists use. We have developed an Earthquake Epicenter Location Tool that includes two Flash-based interactive learning objects that can be used to study basic seismology concepts and lets the user determine earthquake epicenters from current data. Through the Wilber II system maintained at the IRIS (Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) Web site, this project retrieves seismic data of recent earthquakes and makes them available to the public. Students choose an earthquake to perform further explorations. For each earthquake, a selection of USArray seismic stations are marked on a Google Map. Picking a station on the

    Full Text Available This work is the result of a research on the influence that the occultism had on the work of the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. To delimitate the study, we selected papers of Fernando Pessoa, which  suggested that the poet considered himself medium, and hence influenced his work, building his depersonalization. This work presents, thus, as main objectiveto analyze personal papers of Fernando Pessoa, whose outstanding characteristic is the presence of occultism and the supposed mediumship defended by him in response to non-literary and heteronymic manifestations. To this end, I focused on specific objectives, which are: a to study the speech of Fernando Pessoa on his supposed mediumship / occultism b to analyze specific texts that are, for the poet, mediumistic manifestations c to study excerpts from a set of personal letters in which Fernando Pessoa suggested being a medium. It is true that this dissertation will address many discussions already made by scholars and specialists in Fernando Pessoa, but we consider the possibility to deepen issues and contribute to the critical fortune of the poet.

Se observa cómo el autor y el gramático narrador de sus novelas y film (1994-2010, 2000 recurren de forma insistente y unívoca a la difusión de un pensamiento demoledor de la vieja institucionalidad, que funda la nación latinoamericana con estrategias comunicativas provocadoras, autoritarias, afectuosas y mesiánicas que, por lo general, tipifican el discurso populista. En la primera parte se discute el entronque ideológicopolítico de Vallejo con la tradición literaria latinoamericana. En la segunda parte se analiza la forma en la que discurren las estrategias comunicativas que se anotan. Algunas de sus novelas, ensayos y presentaciones públicas constituyen la materia de este trabajo. Al final, se destaca la genialidad del lenguaje vallejiano para articular una extraña forma de encantamiento social que carece de un estilo definido.

    Full Text Available Vector-borne transmission of Chagas disease has become an urban problem in the city of Arequipa, Peru, yet the debilitating symptoms that can occur in the chronic stage of the disease are rarely seen in hospitals in the city. The lack of obvious clinical disease in Arequipa has led to speculation that the local strain of the etiologic agent, Trypanosoma cruzi, has low chronic pathogenicity. The long asymptomatic period of Chagas disease leads us to an alternative hypothesis for the absence of clinical cases in Arequipa: transmission in the city may be so recent that most infected individuals have yet to progress to late stage disease. Here we describe a new method, epicenter regression, that allows us to infer the spatial and temporal history of disease transmission from a snapshot of a population's infection status. We show that in a community of Arequipa, transmission of T. cruzi by the insect vector Triatoma infestans occurred as a series of focal micro-epidemics, the oldest of which began only around 20 years ago. These micro-epidemics infected nearly 5% of the community before transmission of the parasite was disrupted through insecticide application in 2004. Most extant human infections in our study community arose over a brief period of time immediately prior to vector control. According to our findings, the symptoms of chronic Chagas disease are expected to be absent, even if the strain is pathogenic in the chronic phase of disease, given the long asymptomatic period of the disease and short history of intense transmission.

  9. EpiTracer - an algorithm for identifying epicenters in condition-specific biological networks.

    2016-08-18

    In biological systems, diseases are caused by small perturbations in a complex network of interactions between proteins. Perturbations typically affect only a small number of proteins, which go on to disturb a larger part of the network. To counteract this, a stress-response is launched, resulting in a complex pattern of variations in the cell. Identifying the key players involved in either spreading the perturbation or responding to it can give us important insights. We develop an algorithm, EpiTracer, which identifies the key proteins, or epicenters, from which a large number of changes in the protein-protein interaction (PPI) network ripple out. We propose a new centrality measure, ripple centrality, which measures how effectively a change at a particular node can ripple across the network by identifying highest activity paths specific to the condition of interest, obtained by mapping gene expression profiles to the PPI network. We demonstrate the algorithm using an overexpression study and a knockdown study. In the overexpression study, the gene that was overexpressed (PARK2) was highlighted as the most important epicenter specific to the perturbation. The other top-ranked epicenters were involved in either supporting the activity of PARK2, or counteracting it. Also, 5 of the identified epicenters showed no significant differential expression, showing that our method can find information which simple differential expression analysis cannot. In the second dataset (SP1 knockdown), alternative regulators of SP1 targets were highlighted as epicenters. Also, the gene that was knocked down (SP1) was picked up as an epicenter specific to the control condition. Sensitivity analysis showed that the genes identified as epicenters remain largely unaffected by small changes. We develop an algorithm, EpiTracer, to find epicenters in condition-specific biological networks, given the PPI network and gene expression levels. EpiTracer includes programs which can extract the

    This study explores the quasi-real time inversion principle and precision estimation of three-dimensional coordinates of the epicenter, trigger time and magnitude of earthquakes with the aim to improve traditional methods, which are flawed due to missing information or distortion in the seismograph records. The epicenter, trigger time and magnitude from the Lushan earthquake are inverted and analyzed based on high-frequency GNSS data. The inversion results achieved a high precision, which are consistent with the data published by the China Earthquake Administration. Moreover, it has been proven that the inversion method has good theoretical value and excellent application prospects.

    The Royal Observatory of the Spanish Navy (ROA) works on satellite geodesy from the early days of the space age, when the first artificial satellite tracking telescope was installed in 1958: the Baker-Nunn camera. In 1975 a French satellite Laser ranging (SLR) station was installed and operated at ROA . Since 1980, ROA has been operating this instrument which was upgraded to a third generation and it is still keep into a continuous update to reach the highest level of operability. Since then ROA has participated in different space geodesy campaigns through the International Laser Service Stations (ILRS) or its European regional organization (EUROLAS), tracking a number of artificial satellites types : ERS, ENVISAT, LAGEOS, TOPEX- POSEIDON to name but a few. Recently we opened a new field of research: space debris tracking, which is receiving increasing importance and attention from international space agencies. The main problem is the relatively low accuracy of common used methods. It is clear that improving the predicted orbit accuracy is necessary to fulfill our aims (avoiding unnecessary anti-collision maneuvers,..). Following results obtained by other colleagues (Austria, China, USA,...) we proposed to share our time-schedule using our satellite ranging station to obtain data which will make orbital elements predictions far more accurate (sub-meter accuracy), while we still keep our tracking routines over active satellites. In this communication we report the actions fulfill until nowadays.

The soothing power of the verses, sarcasm and irony, relieve resignation over time. The only certainty is life as a journey for the pilgrim. So enjoy the pleasures of this world including undoubtedly love. He conceives the poet's work likes the search for truth. In Miradas al último espejo, Ortiz provides relief from his poetry, says goodbye and thanks the life in a Cervantes wayFiel a los temas recurrentes en sus hondos versos elegíacos, en su último libro Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz recuerda las personas y los lugares de su existencia, canta los efectos del paso del tiempo y la precariedad de la vida, reflexiona sobre la poesía haciendo hincapié en el papel fundamental de la tradición. Lo que pertenece al pasado sobrevive aquí en unas palabras llenas de belleza y emoción, que pretenden abatir la barrera entre el hoy y el ayer: las distintas épocas se mezclan en el sentir de Ortiz y concurren juntas a guiarlo hasta el punto final. El poder lenitivo de los versos, el sarcasmo y la ironía alivian la resignación ante el fluir temporal y le ayudan a aceptar el disgregarse del ser humano en su rápido recorrido por la vida. La única certeza del peregrino es su viaje, razón por la que tiene que aprovecharlo, mostrando gratitud y gozando de los placeres de este mundo entre los que prima indudablemente el amor. Concibiendo la ardua tarea del poeta como una búsqueda de la verdad para transmitirla en sus versos, en Miradas al último espejo Ortiz avisa a sus lectores del destino que todos compartimos, aconseja sobre cómo actuar a lo largo del camino, ofrece el alivio de su poesía y se despide 'con cervantino agradecimiento de la vida'

    Full Text Available Durante las últimas dos décadas, toda una generación de artistas se ha interesado por el pasado actuando como virtuales historiadores: investigando, trabajando con documentos primarios y promoviendo visiones críticas de la historia. Este artículo examina la obra del artista peruano Fernando Bryce bajo ese prisma del «arte de historia». A través de un particular método de trabajo, que el artista ha llamado «análisis mimético», Bryce reflexiona sobre la construcción de la historia, la geopolítica, la identidad en Latinoamérica, sobre todo en Perú, los conflictos bélicos del siglo XX o incluso de la vigencia y genealogía del pensamiento revolucionario. Con una estética aparentemente de archivo, Bryce selecciona documentos que posteriormente copia en tinta china sobre papel para construir nuevas lecturas de la historia. Su selección, descontextualización, visualización de historias pasadas y olvidadas contribuye a traer el pasado al presente. Y su método de trabajo –el copiado anacrónico de documentos, la performance de la historia, su repetición «trastornada»– retuerce el tiempo y cuestiona los discursos hegemónicos acerca del pasado.Over the last two decades, a whole generation of artists approach to the past as if they themselves were historians: investigating, working with primary documents and promoting a critical engagement with history.

    Full Text Available Even in the Renaissance, there were not that many Renaissance men. But if it was hard to live many lives in one even for the best placed of Renaissance Europe it is surely harder in contemporary republican Brazil. And yet Fernando Henrique Cardoso or FHC achieved it. How was this possible and at what cost in terms of conflict between the different specialized roles he occupied? What does this tell us about “politics as a vocation” in twenty-first century democratic Brazil? And what light does it shed on the scope for and limit of political leadership in contemporary democracies? To understand how choices are made we need to consider what motivated the career; what baggage the leader brought into office; what team of ministers were assembled and how their talents were used; what rivals (or enemies spurred the leader into self-definition; what ethics were in play. These strands are not arbitrary or beyond systematic analysis. They are what mostly explain how democratic leaders behave, one of the most vital dimension of democratic performance. Fernando Henrique Cardoso o FHC puede ser considerado un hombre del Renacimiento en el Brasil contemparáneo republicano. ¿Cómo es posible y a cual costo en forma de conflicto entre los diferentes roles especializados que ocupó? ¿Qué nos puede decir sobre "la política como una vocación" en el Brasil democrático del siglo veintiuno y sobre el margen o límite del liderazgo político en democracias contemporáneas?

    Full Text Available Este ensaio explora a importância do espiritismo de Kardec para os princípios de Fernando Ortiz e para seu longo, por vezes tortuoso, inquérito que o leva à noção de "transculturação". Em seus anos de formação, Ortiz foi profundamente influenciado por Lombroso, mas também, como tantos outros escritores e intelectuais, por Kardec. Ele publicou ensaios fundamentais sobre o espiritismo, especialmente sobre as implicações da reencarnação para hierarquias espirituais e sociais. A doutrina de Kardec sobre o progresso espiritual da alma permitiu a Ortiz defender um projeto nacional mais inclusivo. O kardecismo também forneceu metáforas que correm como um fio por seus trabalhos mais importantes sobre as culturas africanas em Cuba, e também por sua poética. A "transmigração" das almas, com suas possibilidades de constantes novos princípios, permitiu a Ortiz introduzir um elemento espiritual e político na ideia de largo alcance que é a transculturação.This essay explores the importance of Kardec's Spiritism in Fernando Ortiz's beginnings and in his long, often roundabout, inquiry leading to the notion of "transculturation". In his formative years Ortiz was deeply influenced by Lombroso but also, like so many other writers and intellectuals, by Kardec. He published fundamental essays on Spiritism, especially on the implications of reincarnation for spiritual and social hierarchies. Kardec's doctrine of the spiritual progress of the soul allowed Ortiz to argue for a more inclusionary national project. Kardecism also provided metaphors that run like a thread through Ortiz's major works on African cultures in Cuba and in his poetics. The "transmigration" of the souls, with its possibilities of endless new beginnnings, enabled Ortiz to introduce a spiritual and political element into the far-ranging idea of transculturation.

    In the occasion of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the founding of Italy (1861-2011), it was decided to analyse the artwork "The Italian Flag" (La Bandiera Italiana) created by the artist Fernando Melani (Pistoia, 1907-1985), one of the precursors of the Poor Art artistic movement in Italy. This project is a follow-up to a previous study which was mainly focused on the pigments and dyes found in his home-studio. The main goal of this paper is to identify a correct diagnostic plan, based on the use of a combination of non-invasive and micro-invasive methodologies, in order to determine the state of preservation and define the best conservation procedures for a contemporary artwork. Visible, infrared and infrared false colour images as well as the Fibre Optic Reflectance Spectroscopy (FORS) technique were applied in situ to analyse The Italian Flag. Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) and micro-Raman spectroscopies, Pyrolysis-Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectroscopy (Py-GC/MS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography with Diode Arrays Detection (HPLC-DAD) and Mass Spectrometric Detection (HPLC-ESI-Q-ToF) were all applied to three small samples detached from the three painted (green-blue, white and red-yellow, respectively) areas of the flag. The combination of the data obtained with all these techniques made possible a comprehensive understanding of both the chemical composition and physical behaviour of the materials used by the artist and supported curators in defining the preventive conservation of this artwork.

    San Marino, an independent republic located in north central Italy, in 1983 had a population of 22,206 growing at an annual rate of .9%. The literacy rate is 97% and the infant mortality rate is 9.6/1000. The terrain is mountainous and the climate is moderate. According to local tradition, San Marino was founded by a Christian stonecutter in the 4th century A.D. as a refuge against religious persecution. Its recorded history began in the 9th century, and it has survived assaults on its independence by the papacy, the Malatesta lords of Rimini, Cesare Borgia, Napoleon, and Mussolini. An 1862 treaty with the newly formed Kingdom of Italy has been periodically renewed and amended. The present government is an alliance between the socialists and communists. San Marino has had its own statutes and governmental institutions since the 11th century. Legislative authority at present is vested in a 60-member unicameral parliament. Executive authority is exercised by the 11-member Congress of State, the members of which head the various administrative departments of the goverment. The posts are divided among the parties which form the coalition government. Judicial authority is partly exercised by Italian magistrates in civil and criminal cases. San Marino's policies are tied to Italy's and political organizations and labor unions active in Italy are also active in San Marino. Since World War II, there has been intense rivalry between 2 political coalitions, the Popular Alliance composed of the Christian Democratic Party and the Independent Social Democratic Party, and the Liberty Committee, coalition of the Communist Party and the Socialist Party. San Marino's gross domestic product was $137 million and its per capita income was $6290 in 1980. The principal economic activities are farming and livestock raising, along with some light manufacturing. Foreign transactions are dominated by tourism. The government derives most of its revenue from the sale of postage stamps to

    In this paper, we calculated the seismic pattern of instrumental recorded small and moderate earthquakes near the epicenter of the 1303 Hongtong M=8 earthquake, Shanxi Province. According to the spatial distribution of small and moderate earthquakes, 6 seismic dense zones are delineated. Temporal distribution of ML≥2 earthquakes since 1970 in each seismic dense zone has been analyzed. Based on temporal distribution characteristics and historical earthquake activity, three types of seismicities are proposed. The relationship between seismic types and crustal medium is analyzed. The mechanism of three types is discussed. Finity of strong earthquake recurrence is proposed. Seismic hazard in mid-long term and diversity of earthquake disaster in Shanxi seismic belt are discussed.

  11. Intravenous Infusion of Magnesium Chloride Improves Epicenter Blood Flow during the Acute Stage of Contusive Spinal Cord Injury in Rats

    2013-01-01

    Abstract Vasospasm, hemorrhage, and loss of microvessels at the site of contusive or compressive spinal cord injury lead to infarction and initiate secondary degeneration. Here, we used intravenous injection of endothelial-binding lectin followed by histology to show that the number of perfused microvessels at the injury site is decreased by 80–90% as early as 20 min following a moderate T9 contusion in adult female rats. Hemorrhage within the spinal cord also was maximal at 20 min, consistent with its vasoconstrictive actions in the central nervous system (CNS). Microvascular blood flow recovered to up to 50% of normal volume in the injury penumbra by 6 h, but not at the epicenter. A comparison with an endothelial cell marker suggested that many microvessels fail to be reperfused up to 48 h post-injury. The ischemia was probably caused by vasospasm of vessels penetrating the parenchyma, because repeated Doppler measurements over the spinal cord showed a doubling of total blood flow over the first 12 h. Moreover, intravenous infusion of magnesium chloride, used clinically to treat CNS vasospasm, greatly improved the number of perfused microvessels at 24 and 48 h. The magnesium treatment seemed safe as it did not increase hemorrhage, despite the improved parenchymal blood flow. However, the treatment did not reduce acute microvessel, motor neuron or oligodendrocyte loss, and when infused for 7 days did not affect functional recovery or spared epicenter white matter over a 4 week period. These data suggest that microvascular blood flow can be restored with a clinically relevant treatment following spinal cord injury. PMID:23302047

    Full Text Available The Library of the Ducal Palace at Vila Viçosa preserves three large choirbooks of polyphonic repertoire intended for Holy Week, prepared between 1735 and 1736 by a copyist of the Patriarchal Church. These choirbooks contain all the known extant works by Fernando de Almeida (died in 1660. When comparing the music of Fernando de Almeida with that of his near contemporary João Lourenço Rebelo (1610-1661, the different trends in Portuguese early- to mid-seventeenth-century church music become clear, especially if viewed in the light of the acknowledged aesthetic and compositional premises explained in the 1649 Defensa de la mvsica moderna by King João IV. Rebelo’s concertato works incline towards the style of north-Italian composers. The ingenuity of Fernando de Almeida’s style, which is particularly noticeable in his eight-voice Holy Week responsories, lays in the integration of prominent Baroque features within the mould of Iberian Mannerist tradition.La Biblioteca del Palacio Ducal de Vila Viçosa posee tres grandes libros de coro con repertorio polifónico destinado a la Semana Santa, preparados entre 1735 y 1736 por un copista de la Iglesia Patriarcal.

  15. Joint inversion of teleseismic body-waves and geodetic data for the Mw6.8 aftershock of the Balochistan earthquake with refined epicenter location

    Aftershocks of the 2013 Balochistan earthquake are mainly concentrated along the northeastern end of the mainshock rupture despite of much larger coseismic slip to the southwest. The largest event among them is an Mw6.8 earthquake which occurred three days after the mainshock. A kinematic slip model of the mainshock was obtained by joint inversion of the teleseismic body-waves and horizontal static deformation field derived from remote sensing optical and SAR data, which is composed of seven fault segments with gradually changing strikes and dips [Avouac et al., 2014]. The remote sensing data provide well constraints on the fault geometry and spatial distribution of slip but no timing information. Meanwhile, the initiation of the teleseismic waveform is very sensitive to fault geometry of the epicenter segment (strike and dip) and spatial slip distribution but much less sensitive to the absolute location of the epicenter. The combination of the two data sets allows a much better determination of the absolute epicenter location, which is about 25km to the southwest of the NEIC epicenter location. The well located mainshock epicenter is used to establish path calibrations for teleseismic P-waves, which are essential for relocating the Mw6.8 aftershock. Our grid search shows that the refined epicenter is located right at the northeastern end of the mainshock rupture. This is confirmed by the SAR offsets calculated from images acquired after the mainshock. The azimuth and range offsets display a discontinuity across the rupture trace of the mainshock. Teleseismic only and static only, as well as joint inversions all indicate that the aftershock ruptured an asperity with 25km along strike and range from 8km to 20km in depth. The earthquake was originated in a positive Coulomb stress change regime due to the mainshock and has complementary slip distribution to the mainshock rupture at the northeastern end, suggesting that the entire seismic generic zone in the crust was

    Hyphenated techniques of gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometer were used to determine fatty acids in eleven species of seaweeds from Fernando de Noronha archipelago. The main compounds detected in all studied species were the alcohol phytol and the fatty acids 14 : 0; 15 : 0; 16 : 0; 18 : 0; 18 : 1 n9; 18 : 2 Δ9,12; 20 : 4; 20 : 5. These fatty acids are commonly found in seaweeds present in warm regions. Thus, we found no specificity in the presence of a particular set of fatty acids and the studied species indicating that they are not useful as taxonomic indicators. However, they could be used in a comparative study with algae found in polluted area because many of the studied seaweeds are widespread and Fernando de Noronha has low human influence.

  1. Co-seismic luminescence in Lima, 150 km from the epicenter of the Pisco, Peru earthquake of 15 August 2007

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available The first photographs of Co-seismic Luminescence, commonly known as Earthquake lights (EQLs, were reported in 1968 in Japan. However, there have been documented reports of luminescence associated with earthquakes since ancient times in different parts of the world. Besides this, there is modern scientific work dealing with evidence of and models for the production of such lights. During the Peru 15 August 2007 Mw=8.0 earthquake which occurred at 06:40 p.m. LT, hence dark in the southern wintertime, several EQLs were observed along the Peruvian coast and extensively reported in the capital city of Lima, about 150 km northwest of the epicenter. These lights were video-recorded by a security camera installed at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru (PUCP campus and time-correlated with seismic ground accelerations registered at the seismological station on campus, analyzed and related to highly qualified eyewitness observations of the phenomena from other parts of the city and to other video recordings. We believe the evidence presented here contributes significantly to sustain the hypothesis that electromagnetic phenomena related to seismic activity can occur, at least during an earthquake. It is highly probable that continued research in luminescence and the use of magnetometers in studying electromagnetic activity and radon gas emanation detectors will contribute even more towards determining their occurrence during and probably prior to seismic activity.

    The island of Fernando de Noronha is one of the best sites in Brazil to make use of winds for the electricity generation. Three principal factors contribute to this fact: the high wind potential; the fact that all be electricity generation on the island is done by diesel generator; the pollution of atmosphere due to the burning of diesel oil. At the moment the unit price of energy is very high an due to social reasons it is subsidized. This paper presents the strategies to implement the first wind turbine of medium size of 75 kW (17 m in diameter) so as to contribute effectively to the reduction of diesel oil consumption. 7 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs

  5. Analysis of the similar epicenter earthquakes on 22 January 2013 and 01 June 2013, Central Gulf of Suez, Egypt

    On 22 January 2013 an earthquake with local magnitude ML 4.1 occurred in the central part of the Gulf of Suez. Six months later on 1 June 2013 another earthquake with local magnitude ML 5.1 took place at the same epicenter and different depths. These two perceptible events were recorded and localized by the Egyptian National Seismological Network (ENSN) and additional networks in the region. The purpose of this study is to determine focal mechanisms and source parameters of both earthquakes to analyze their tectonic relation. We determine the focal mechanisms by applying moment tensor inversion and first motion analysis of P- and S-waves. Both sources reveal oblique focal mechanisms with normal faulting and strike-slip components on differently oriented faults. The source mechanism of the larger event on 1 June in combination with the location of aftershock sequence indicates a left-lateral slip on N-S striking fault structure in 21 km depth that is in conformity with the NE-SW extensional Shmin (orientation of minimum horizontal compressional stress) and the local fault pattern. On the other hand, the smaller earthquake on 22 January with a shallower hypocenter in 16 km depth seems to have happened on a NE-SW striking fault plane sub-parallel to Shmin. Thus, here an energy release on a transfer fault connecting dominant rift-parallel structures might have resulted in a stress transfer, triggering the later ML 5.1 earthquake. Following Brune's model and using displacement spectra, we calculate the dynamic source parameters for the two events. The estimated source parameters for the 22 January 2013 and 1 June 2013 earthquakes are fault length (470 and 830 m), stress drop (1.40 and 2.13 MPa), and seismic moment (5.47E+21 and 6.30E+22 dyn cm) corresponding to moment magnitudes of MW 3.8 and 4.6, respectively.

    Full Text Available A crônica é um gênero dialético. Dividida entre a literatura e o jornalismo, entre a arte e a indústria, a crônica é ao mesmo tempo metropolitana e provinciana, isto é, o cronista é um homem essencialmente urbano, mas sua posição não é que qualquer habitante da cidade. Ele olha o mundo do “rés-do-chão”, busca o que existe de mais supérfluo e efêmero do cotidiano das grandes cidades. De certa forma, a subjetividade do cronista é a lente que filtra a concretude da cidade. Assim, tendo em vista a relação paradoxal entre a cidade e a crônica, este ensaio tem como objetivo analisar três crônicas de Caio Fernando Abreu publicadas no Estado de S. Paulo: “Calamidade Pública”, “Zero grau de Libra” e “Reflexões sobre um fora-da-lei do Atrolho”.PALAVRAS-CHAVE: Crônica. Cidade. Caio Fernando Abreu. Abstract The chronic is a dialectic genre. Divided between literature and journalism, between art and industry, the chronic, at the same time, is metropolitan and provincial, i.e., the chronist is a man essentially urban, but his position is not like of any other townsman. He looks the world through the “ground-floor”; he seeks what is most superfluous and ephemeral in the daily life in major cities. Someway, the subjectivity of the chronist is the filtering lens for the concreteness of the city. Thus, considering the paradoxical relation between the city and the chronic, this essay aims to analyze three chronics by Caio Fernando Abreu published in Estado de S.

It is shown that the turbulence level decreases by ~ 10% during three days before earthquakes probably due to the heating of the atmosphere. On the contrary, the turbulence level increases by the same value from one to three days after the shocks. For earthquakes with magnitudes M > 5 the effect exists at distances up to 300 km from the epicenters. The effect could also exist for weak (M ~ 4 and shallow (depth < 50 km earthquakes at a distance smaller than 200 km from the epicenters.

    Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago of 21 islands and islets in the Atlantic Ocean, state of Pernambuco, Brazil, which has a varied biodiversity including alien species or sinantropic animals. The objective here was to determine the seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii in domestic and wild animals from Fernando de Noronha archipelago, Brazil. Between July 2007 and May 2010, blood samples were collected from 764 animals (533 domestic and 231 wild animals). Sera were tested by the indirect fluorescence antibody test (IFAT) or the modified agglutination test (MAT), or by both. Antibodies to T. gondii were found in 80 (80.0%) of 100 chickens ( Gallus domesticus ), 3 (3.0%) of 100 cattle ( Bos taurus ), 59 (60.8%) of 97 sheep ( Ovis aries ), 9 (81.8%) of 11 goats ( Capra hircus ), 7 (43.7%) of 16 horses ( Equus caballus ), 70 (59.3%) of 118 cats ( Felis catus ), 36 (39.6%) of 91 dogs ( Canis familiaris ), 13 (38.2%) of 34 black rats ( Rattus rattus ), and 157 (79.7%) of 197 cattle egrets ( Bubulcus ibis ). Results indicate endemic infection by this zoonotic parasite among the animal and avian fauna in this archipelago from Brazil.

    Full Text Available O artigo tem como objetivo principal mais uma leitura de um dos textos de Caio Fernando Abreu. A obra dele já está suficiente e consolidadamente chancelada pela crítica. Os dois argumentos se sustentam na ideia de que a primeira parte do conto desenha um pano de fundo para a leitura que proponho: o cenário. A segunda parte do artigo desenvolve a leitura em si mesma, chamando a atenção para aspectos que considero importantes para o desenvolvimento da ideia: a assimetria que marca as relações poder, sem especificação particular, articulada pela articulação de termos, expressões e imagens. Identifico esse conjunto de elementos discursivos como “dêiticos”. Deve ficar claro que não faço defesa desta ou daquela escola linguística, procurando atacar e/ou defender teorias acerca dos “dêiticos”. O que importa é tentar “ler” as relações que aqui são ficcionalmente prenunciadas. Por fim, na terceira parte do artigo, acrescento algumas considerações, no sentido de “amarrar” ideias num feixe que, incendiado pelo “fogo” da leitura, complementem as considerações anteriores. Falar em “conclusão” me parece um tanto premeditado.  Palavras-chave: Literatura brasileira, Caio Fernando Abreu, Subjetividade, Homoerotismo

The latter, along with T. lyonneti (Audouim, 1826 recorded from the state of Rio Grande do Sul, is the second species of this genus to be reported from Brazil. The spiders were collected with pitfall traps in five points of the island. Ecological data showed that Gnaphosidae was the fifth best sampled spider family, with 179 specimens, belonging to two species, T. kulczynskii and Z. hortenciae. Trachyzelotes kulczynskii was the most abundant with 118 adults while Z. hortenciae was represented by only 21 adults. Both species were collected during the dry and wet seasons but T. kulczynskii was more abundant during the wet season while Z. hortenciae was more abundant during the dry season.

    Full Text Available Although Fernando Pessoa’s work mostly exists in the nearly 30,000 pieces of paper that form the archive held by the Portuguese National Library, it is possible to show how this archive is composed by bibliographical materials, which link it to the book as a medium. Against the common idea of Pessoa as someone who didn’t write books and only left individual pieces of paper, this material evidence shows that the poet conceived an idea of the book and of a set of books, which conditioned his way of writing. This article follows the purpose of contextualizing and determining Pessoa’s concerns with the materiality of a medium different than the one which contains the greater part of his work, by analyzing several evidences of this bibliographical dimension of his writing.

    Full Text Available In the process of establishing science-based cultural and scientific relations between Spain and Cuba, they played a key role the scientific studies and contacts taken up byœFernando Ortiz in Spain with prestigious experts in Anthropology, Criminology, Sociology and History, as well as his conception of culture, science and nation and the continuous contacts with intellectuals who were heir to the principles of the Institución Libre de Enseñanza and members of the Junta de Ampliación de Estudios e Investigaciones Científicas. The consolidation of the cultural relations through the creation of the Institución Hispanocubana de Cultura paved the way for the reception of Spanish intellectual exiles in 1939.

    La formación científica que Fernando Ortiz adquirió en España junto a prestigiosos hombres de la cultura –antropología, criminología, sociología e historia–, su concepción de la cultura, la ciencia, la nación y el contacto continuo con muchos de los intelectuales herederos de los principios de la Institución Libre de Enseñanza y miembros de la Junta para la Ampliación de Estudios e Investigaciones Científicas, fueron elementos claves para el establecimiento de las relaciones culturales y científicas entre España y Cuba, basadas en la ciencia.

    Full Text Available In the year 1580 in Seville, the Works of Garcilaso de la Vega with Annotations by Fernando de Herrera were first published, in which he edits and comments on thirty-five sonnets, five songs, two elegies, one letter, and three eclogues by the Toledo-born poet. With the exception of the letter, each of the other poetic formats is followed by an extensive dissertation of a largely historical and scholarly kind. Yet, what is of greatest interest are the specific comments he makes upon concrete lines of verse, comments which reveal him as possessing a thorough knowledge of the poetic theories in vogue during the second half of the sixteenth century, and also as an extraordinarily perceptive and sensitive literary critic. In this discussion his numerous references to metrical-based issues, as well as to tropological and figurative language, are mulled over, analyzed, and systematized.En el año 1580, se publicaron por primera vez en Sevilla las Obras de Garcilaso de la Vega con anotaciones de Fernando de Herrera, que edita y comenta treinta y cinco sonetos, cinco canciones, dos elegías, una epístola y tres églogas del poeta toledano. Con excepción de la epístola, cada una de las otras formas poemáticas va seguida de una extensa disertación de corte fundamentalmente histórico y erudito. Pero lo más interesante son los comentarios puntuales que hace a determinados versos, que nos revelan a un profundo conocedor de las teorías poéticas vigentes en la segunda mitad del siglo XVI y a un crítico literario extraordinariamente perspicaz y sensible. Se reúnen, analizan y sistematizan aquí sus numerosísimas referencias a las cuestiones métricas y al lenguaje tropológico y figurado.

    2012-01-01

    The 11 March 2011 M 9.0 Great East Japan earthquake generated significant long-duration shaking that propagated hundreds of kilometers from the epicenter and affected urban areas throughout much of Honshu. Recorded responses of a tall building at 770 km from the epicenter of the mainshock and other related or unrelated events show how structures sensitive to long-period motions can be affected by distant sources. Even when the largest peak input motions to the building is about 3% g, the strong-shaking duration was about 140 s. The 300- to 1000-s prolonged responses of the building are primarily due to a combination of site resonance (e.g. structural fundamental frequency ~0.15 Hz and site frequency ~0.13–0.17 Hz) and low damping (~1–2%) of the structure. Response modification technologies can improve the response of the building during future earthquakes. The need-to-consider risks to such built environments from distant sources are emphasized.

(2011) Evidence of reassortment of pandemic H1N1 influenza virus in swine in Argentina: are we facing the expansion of potential epicenters of influenza emergence? Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses 5(6), 409–412. In this report, we describe the occurrence of two novel swine influenza viruses (SIVs) in pigs in Argentina. These viruses are the result of two independent reassortment events between the H1N1 pandemic influenza virus (H1N1pdm) and human‐like SIVs, showing the constant evolution of influenza viruses at the human–swine interface and the potential health risk of H1N1pdm as it appears to be maintained in the swine population. It must be noted that because of the lack of information regarding the circulation of SIVs in South America, we cannot discard the possibility that ancestors of the H1N1pdm or other SIVs have been present in this part of the world. More importantly, these findings suggest an ever‐expanding geographic range of potential epicenters of influenza emergence with public health risks. PMID:21668680

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2175-7917.2011v16n1p29 O estudo em questão procura especular a natureza inconstante do ser humano no momento em que este experimenta a sensação de abandono, tomando como objeto de estudo a personagem paradoxal de Caio Fernando Abreu em Os sapatinhos vermelhos. Pretendemos atentar para a relação que se estabelece entre experimentar o vazio e revoltar-se contra o tempo perdido. Debruçamo-nos, nesse sentido, sobre as experiências da depressão e da transgressão à dor. Para tanto, utilizamos como arcabouço teórico os pensamentos de Santo Agostinho, Barthes, Kierkegaard, Kristeva e Peres. Entretanto, é o discurso ficcional (e visceral de Caio Fernando Abreu que nos serve de norte principal.

    Full Text Available A vida e obra de Fernando Pessoa podem ser lidas e interpretadas de diferentes modos ou níveis. Entre as linhas de força dela destaca-se a do ocultismo ou esoterismo, patente desde cedo nos seus escritos, leituras e investigações. Devido à sua subtileza e natureza simbólica em que se expressa, o Esoterismo não é facilmente aceite ou compreendido por muitos comentadores menos sensíveis ou interessados em tais dimensões. Esta compreensão torna-se ainda mais difícil porque durante a sua vida Fernando Pessoa entrou em tantas investigações, criou tantas afiliações ou projectos, e porque muitos dos seus textos póstumos esotéricos não estavam datados, prestando-se assim a ser vistos como contraditórias. Torna-se então muito importante compreender as suas fontes de conhecimento culto, quem foram os autores que ele leu mais e anotou e que quais os temas e níveis mais investigados. Hoje é possível, com muitos mais inéditos publicados e a sua obra mais contextualizada pelos trabalhos milhares de investigadores, termos uma leitura e compreensão mais profunda do seu vastíssimo conhecimento, desde a poesia à sociologia, da astrologia e simbolismo às ordens esotéricas e iniciação e uma leitura mais acertada do seu caminho hermenêutico espiritual e do seu lugar na Tradição Literária e Espiritual Portuguesa, que delinearemos também rapidamente desde o galaico-português até ao Modernismo do século XX, partilhando ainda alguns textos esotéricos e autobiográficos mais significativos. Toda esta demanda oculta, manifestada hoje para nós nos seus múltiplos textos, anotações ou ensaios inéditos em vida, culminarão nos seus poemas esotéricos publicados em revistas, na sua obra prima a Mensagem, na defesa das Associações Secretas, e finalmente na sua iniciação, de que algumas indicações são dadas nas notas autobiográficas ou testamentos finais, dos quais partilhamos partes, ao que acrescentaremos alguns dos seus

His life is based on three areas: architectural production, academic and research activities. In this research his latest work will be discussed: Three Tower triplets Star-Building (1975 was built on the seafront in Zapillo, Almería; and that is a smart residential work of formal investigation and structural sincerity. Star-Building is an example of how, since the resignation and moderate density, it is possible to construct interesting proposals for housing -oriented towards tourism- on the beachfront. Of course, it deserves to be well known by who nowadays decides to design and build collective architecture. The three project versions will be discussed and described, also explaining how the structure and the traces of the process of building are the genesis and story of this work.La obra del arquitecto almeriense Fernando Cassinello Pérez ha sido escasamente publicada, pero lo cierto es que construyó mucho y bien.

También son un ejemplo de cómo, desde la renuncia y con una densidad moderada, es posible construir interesantes propuestas de viviendas –orientadas al turismo– en la primera línea de playa. Y que, desde luego, merecen ser conocida por quien decida hoy proyectar y construir arquitectura colectiva. Se analizarán y describirán las tres versiones del proyecto; y se explicará cómo la estructura y las huellas del proceso de construcción son la génesis y el argumento de esta obra.

    Full Text Available The Fernando de Noronha Archipelago presents, on its main island, a centrally-located stratigraphic unit, the Remédios Formation (age around 8 - 12 Ma constituted by basal pyroclastic rocks intruded by dikes, plugs and domes of varied igneous rocks, capped by flows and pyroclastics of mafic to ultramafic rocks of the Quixaba Formation (age around 1 - 3 Ma, which is limited from the underlying unit by an extensive irregular erosion surface. A predominant sodic Remédios series (basanites, tephrites, tephriphonolites, essexite, phonolites can be separated from a moderately potassic Remédios sequence (alkali basalts, trachyandesites, trachytes, both alkaline series showing mostly continuous geochemical trends in variation diagrams for major as well as trace elements, indicating evolution by crystal fractionation (mainly, separation of mafic minerals, including apatites and titanites. There are textural and mineralogical evidences pointing to hybrid origin of some intermediate rocks (e.g., resorbed pyroxene phenocrysts in basaltic trachyandesites, and in some lamprophyres. The primitive Quixaba rocks are mostly melanephelinites and basanites, primitive undersaturated sodic types. Geology (erosion surface, stratigraphy (two distinct units separated by a large time interval, petrography (varied Remédios Formation, more uniform Quixaba unit and geochemistry indicate that the islands represent the activity of a protracted volcanic episode, fueled by intermittent melting of an enriched mantle, not related to asthenospheric plume activity.

    Toxoplasma gondii isolates from Brazil have a different phenotypic and genotypic pattern, with predominance of virulent isolates and recombinant genotypes, compared to the North Hemisphere. Considering that a new T. gondii genotype, non-pathogenic to mice, was previously identified from free-range chickens from the Fernando de Noronha Island, Brazil, this study aimed to identify genotypes of this parasite in tissue samples of feral cats (Felis catus) from this Brazilian Island. Anti-T. gondii IgG antibodies were detected in 18/31 (58%) feral cats. Two non-virulent T. gondii isolates were obtained by mouse bioassay. Genotyping was performed by PCR-RFLP using 10 genetic markers (SAG1, SAG2, SAG3, BTUB, GRA6, c22-8, c29-2, PK1, L358 and Apico) and an atypical strain of T. gondii (ToxoDB #146) was identified. This is the first report of this genotype in feral cats. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available La enseñanza de la literatura en la escuela centra sus objetivos prioritarios en la formación de la competencia literaria, por lo que los estudios literarios deben optar por un análisis global del discurso, estudiando no solo aspectos formales y estructurales del texto, sino teniendo en cuenta la figura del receptor y el contexto en los que se produce la comunicación literaria. Las relaciones que se establecen entre el discurso y el lector deben ser un elemento fundamental a la hora de abordar el análisis de los textos literarios. En este sentido queremos destacar la importancia de los recursos intertextuales para la formación de una competencia literaria sólida y el desarrollo del intertexto lector. Teniendo en cuenta las posibilidades lúdicas y didácticas que presentan para el lector infantil los juegos intertextuales, en este artículo analizamos las referencias intertextuales contenidas en las obras de Fernando Alonso: El misterioso influjo de la barquillera y Las raíces del mar. Dos narraciones que reflejan la potencialidad de este tipo de textos para la estimulación lectora y el tratamiento didáctico de la literatura.

    Full Text Available The article examines the critique of Christianity in the work of Fernando Vallejo through the study of the author’s heretic rationality and its manifestation in the depiction of mass media in the novel Our Lady of the Assassins (1994, trans. 2001. In light of the narrative El desbarrancadero (The Precipice, 2001 and the essay La puta de babilonia (The Whore of Babylon, 2007, one may appreciate how the media in the novel take over the role of social control that the religious icon gained internationally, under the papacy of Leo XIII, and in Colombia under the concordat between the State and the Holy See. Upon analyzing the way in which the essay describes this papacy, the article assesses its relevance for Colombian history within a global context and identifies the political-theological problem of the right to happiness as the substratum that motivates Vallejo’s refection about the relation between the international narcotics trade and the absence of constitutive civil and religious power at the local level.

  9. Dual-system Tectonics of the San Luis Range and Vicinity, Coastal Central California

    Hamilton, D. H.

    2010-12-01

    The M 6.5 "San Simeon" earthquake of December 22, 2003, occurred beneath the Santa Lucia Range in coastal central California, and resulted in around $250,000,000 property damage and two deaths from collapse of an historic building in the town of Paso Robles, located 40 km from the epicenter. The earthquake and more than 10,000 aftershocks were well recorded by nearby seismographs, which permitted detailed analysis of the event (eg: McLaren et al., 2008). This analysis facilitated evaluation of the hazard of the occurrence of a similar event in the nearby San Luis Range, located along the coast west of the city of San Luis Obispo some 55 km south of the San Simeon epicenter. The future occurrence of earthquakes analogous to the 2003 event in this area had been proposed in the late 1960’s (eg: Benioff and Smith, 1967; Richter, 1969) but the apparent hazard of such occurrences came to be overshadowed by the discovery of the “Hosgri” strike slip fault passing close to the area in the offshore. However data accumulated since the early 1970’s clearly demonstrate the hazard as being partitioned between nearby earthquakes of strike slip origin, and underlying earthquakes of thrust origin analogous to that of the 2003 San Simeon earthquake. And for the onshore San Luis Range area, an underlying actively seismogenic thrust wedge appears to provide the maximum potential seismic ground motion; exceeding that potentially resulting from large events on nearby strike slip faults of the San Simeon-Hosgri system, for onshore sites. Understanding and documentation of the geology, geomorphology, tectonics and seismogenesis of the San Luis Range and vicinity has recently experienced a quantum improvement as both new and accumulated data have been analysed. An integrated interpretation of all available data now clearly shows that a dual “side by side” system of active tectonics exists in the region. Essentially the most obvious evidence for this is seen simply in the

    Full Text Available The F2-layer critical frequency (foF2 data from several ionosondes are employed to study the long-distance effect of the M8.8 Chile Earthquake of February 27, 2010, on the F2 layer. Significant perturbations of the peak F2-layer electron density have been observed following the earthquake at two South African stations, Hermanus and Madimbo, which are located at great circle distances of ~8,000 and ~10,000 km from the earthquake epicenter, respectively. Simplified estimates demonstrate that the observed ionospheric perturbations can be caused by a long-period acoustic gravity wave produced in the F-region by the earthquake.

Results show that Wenchuan earthquake should have two macro-epicenters. One is Niujuan canyon in Yingxiu extreme seismic region with coordinates as 31. 045 6°N, 103. 455 6°E, and the other is Beichuan county in Beichuan extreme seismic zone with coordinates as 31. 863 7°N, 104. 361 0°E. Two judging methods are compared, and the former is proved to be more in line with the law of earthquake destruction in the mountainous areas with special geological and geomorphological environment.

The research approach included the use of geochemical (mineralogy, elemental, carbon isotopes (δ13C, 14C and pollen analyses in soil organic matter (SOM and sediments collected in Lagoa da Viração and Manguezal do Sueste. The carbon isotopes data of SOM indicated that there was no significant vegetation changes during the last 7400 BP, suggesting that the climate was not the determinant factor for the vegetation dynamics. The pollen analysis of the sediment of a core collected in the Lagoa da Viração showed the absence of Quaternary material in the period between 720 BP and 90 BP. The mineralogical analysis of deeper layer showed the presence of diopside indicating this material was developed "in situ". Only in the shallow part of the core were found pollen of similar plant species of the modern vegetation. The geochemistry and isotope results, in association with the sediment type and pollen analyses of sediment samples of Manguezal do Sueste, indicated variations in the vegetation and in its location since the middle Holocene. Such variations can be associated with climatic events and sea level oscillations and also with anthropogenic events considering the last five hundred years.Esta pesquisa teve o objetivo de reconstruir trocas de vegetação (com referências climáticas que ocorreram durante o Holoceno na ilha de Fernando de Noronha, Estado de Pernambuco, nordeste do Brasil.

    2016-05-01

    mano de una agenda oculta, o por lo menos no explícita: La voluntad de recuperar la dimensión emancipadora y política de la arquitectura y la  necesidad, urgente, de formular nuevas utopías provisionales,  contingentes, lúdicas, y a ser posible, abiertas. Abstract The book Arquitecturas del devenir is a compilation of texts by Fernando Quesada that share two explicit goals. The first one is to put forward the  concepts of becoming and, more specifically, performativity, as possible tools to rethink architecture’s capabilities for the determination of life and the transformation of reality. The second one is to incorporate a series of discourses, external to architecture, in order to "sharpen its capacities." A  commitment to disciplinary openness that leads Quesada to incorporate a rich repertoire of ideas and characters, often rarely visited, and which allows him to address a wide rang of architectural themes from new and enriching perspectives. There are two additional issues that add interest and  consistency to this intense anthology. On the one hand, a general spirit  that could be defined as presocratic and involves the valuation of  indeterminacy, contingency and the intermediate and impure categories. Performativity is thus extended to the very form of the discourse through a series of texts whose ultimate sense remains, somehow, suspended and open, pending on the subjectivity of the reader. On the other hand, a clear antagonism toward the biopolitical techniques, the processes meant to   design our subjectivities, and the world folded upon itself by globalized  capitalism. A resistant attitude that involves a hidden, or at least not  explicit, agenda: the will to regain the emancipatory and political  dimension of architecture and the urgent need to formulate new utopias. Utopias meant to be provisional, contingent, playful and, if possible, open.

    A comprehensive understanding of both the chemical composition and physical behaviour of modern materials is an important consideration in devising correct conservation treatments for contemporary artworks. To this end, national and international research projects and networks have been established that deal mainly with the preservation, conservation, and understanding of materials used by contemporary artists. This paper focuses on the self-taught artist Fernando Melani (1907-1985), one of the precursors of the Poor Art artistic movement in Italy, and for the first time provides a scientific viewpoint on the artist's materials and works. The analyses, which mainly focus on the pigments/dyes found in his home-studio, were carried out primarily by using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) and ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared Fibre Optic Reflectance Spectroscopy (UV-Vis-NIR FORS). This paper emphasises the performance of FT-IR and FORS in the identification of contemporary artistic materials, since these two techniques have been found to produce highly complementary data. The use of both of these was required in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the composition of Melani's materials. Furthermore, one of his artworks, named by Melani himself with its inventory number N. Inv. 2625 (1981), was investigated in situ with the sole use of the FORS technique. The results showed that Melani used traditional inorganic pigments as well as modern organic dyes. Calcite and barite were used as fillers and extenders. Sulphur and abrasive powder were also found, thus confirming his use of a large variety of non-conventional artists' materials.

    Full Text Available The Mollusca Pteropoda from Fernando de Noronha Chain Northeastern Brazil were studied in order to know their taxonomy and distribution. Collections were carried out during the I Oceanographical Expedition of the REVIZEE Program (Live Resources of the Economical Exclusive Zone from August to September 1995. The studied area is located between 03°04'S-04°23'S and 32°19'W-36°26'W, comprising 35 stations. Sampling was performed through oblique hauls from 50m depth to surface and from 100 m depth to surface, with a Bongo net (300 and 500 µm mesh size, net diameter: 60 cm, that was equipped with a flow meter. Samples in a total of 99 were preserved, immediately, in buffered 4% formaldehyde. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of the samples were performed based on total sample. The samples were analysed on a counting plate "Bogorov" type under a stereo microscope. A total of 8,258 organisms were identified belonging to: 8 families, 16 genera and 27 species. Limacina inflata (d´Orbigny, 1836 and Creseis virgula (Rang, 1828 were frequent and very frequent in the area outranking among the studied Pteropoda. The total density varied from 2.5 to 3,012.05 org.m-³. Highest richness was registered at the Continental Shelf and Slope with 1two species. The Pteropoda association showed higher differences between day and night collections. Limacina inflata caused this difference due to its higher density at night collections and it was independent of the depth, mesh size and temperature. Creseis virgula had its occurrence, mainly, during day time.

    Full Text Available The phosphatic soils found in the northern part of the Rata island, in the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, wereformed by reaction of bird guano with weathered mafi c rocks of the Quixaba Formation. Phosphate minerals identifi edinclude crandallite as a major constituent. The unique guano signature preserved in soil is characterized by high levelsof Cu, Pb, Zn, As, U, and Sr. On the other hand, the inheritance of the geochemical signature of the nepheline-basalts isdemonstrated by the anomalous concentrations of Ba, Nb, Ta, Cr, Hf, V and Zr in soils, and by the remarkable similaritybetween REE patterns in rock and soils.

    Unwarranted exposure due to liberal use of metals for maintaining the lavish life and to achieve the food demand for escalating population along with an incredible boost in the average human life span owing to orchestrated progress in rejuvenation therapy have gradually increased the occurrence of Parkinson's disease (PD). Etiology is albeit elusive; association of PD with metal accumulation has never been overlooked due to noteworthy similitude between metal-exposure symptoms and a few cardinal features of disease. Even though metals are entailed in the vital functions, a hysterical shift, primarily augmentation, escorts the stern nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurodegeneration. An increase in the passage of metals through the blood brain barrier and impaired metabolic activity and elimination system could lead to metal accumulation in the brain, which eventually makes dopaminergic neurons quite susceptible. In the present article, an update on implication of metal accumulation in PD/Parkinsonism has been provided. Moreover, encouraging and paradoxical facts and fictions associated with metal accumulation in PD/Parkinsonism have also been compiled. Systematic literature survey of PD is performed to describe updated information if metal accumulation is an epicenter or merely an outcome. Finally, a perspective on the association of metal accumulation with pesticide-induced Parkinsonism has been explained to unveil the likely impact of the former in the latter.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2175-7917.2014v19n1p95 Neste texto, apresentamos uma análise do conto “Gravata”, do escritor gaúcho Caio Fernando Abreu, a partir de alguns aspectos da sociedade capitalista moderna. “Gravata” pertence ao livro O ovo apunhalado, publicado em 1975, e acumula uma série de leituras sobre si que tratam de aspectos de diferentes áreas do conhecimento como a história, a filosofia e a sociologia. Nesta proposta de leitura, enfatizamos a relação de oposição entre objetividade e subjetividade presente no conto desde a perspectiva do Fator Econômico e da Estrutura Econômica seguindo o viés presente nos estudos do filósofo Karel Kosik (1979. Para tanto, consideramos o contexto no qual o conto foi produzido: o período ditatorial brasileiro, destacando o momento de expansão econômica e de censura cultural vivenciado pelo país. No momento em que o Brasil alçava-se no cenário mundial, tendo a forma de expansão econômica adotada pelos Estados Unidos como modelo a ser seguido, um grande número de pessoas foi atraído para os centros urbanos. O governo tratou, então, de doutrinar com punho de ferro a conduta que deveria ser assumida nas urbes, produzindo uma sensação de deslocamento e muitas vezes até de rejeição naqueles que migravam para as grandes metrópoles, produzindo indivíduos fragmentados, como o protagonista do conto analisado, o qual necessita equilibrar-se sobre uma tênue linha entre a razão e a loucura. The doctrinaire government forced with great power the conduct which should have been assumed by the big cities, resulting on a lost feeling and even rejection by the ones who migrated to the metropoles,making fragmented individuals like the protagonist from the short story in question, which is in need of balancing out between reasoning and craziness.

    2017-03-01

    Observational data and numerical modeling were used to investigate oceanic current wakes surrounding Fernando de Noronha Island (3°51‧S-32°25‧W) and Rocas Atoll (3°52‧S-33°49‧W). These two Brazilian systems are located in the western tropical Atlantic region and are under the influence of the westward flow of the central South Equatorial Current (cSEC). In order to highlight the effects of wakes on ocean dynamics, two different numerical simulations were performed, using the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS): the first one including Fernando de Noronha Island and Rocas Atoll (Scenario I) and the second one with artificial removal of the island and atoll (Scenario NI). Simulations are validated through the Scenario I that well reproduces the wakes that give rise to the development of eddies downstream of FN and AR. These mesoscale structures have a strong influence on the thermodynamic properties surrounding the Island and the Atoll. Scenario NI allows evidence of the presence of an Island and Atoll shoaling mixed layer throughout the year, primarily on the western side of the Island and the Atoll. Mixing at the base of the mixed layer, inducing a subsurface cooling, is also enhanced in the downstream portion of the Island and Atoll, particularly when the cSEC is strengthened. These simulations support the ;island mass effect; on the high productivity of subsurface waters generally observed on the western side of these islands.

    The accelerated growth trajectory of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is a matter of concern for governments worldwide. In developing countries, the problem is more complex because municipal waste management is still a challenge for municipalities. Fernando de Noronha Island, an environmentally protected area, has a transfer station for solid waste before it is sent to the final destination abroad, which is different waste management model to most urban areas. In order to check the specifics of management of WEEE, this study aimed to qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate the generation of this type of waste on the main island of Fernando de Noronha, taking into consideration aspects related to consumption habits and handling of waste. During the in situ research, a questionnaire was applied to a sample of 83 households. The results provide a picture of the generation of WEEE for a period of 1 year, when a production of 1.3 tons of WEEE was estimated. Relationships between education level and monthly income and between education level and number of plasma/LCD TVs and washing machines were confirmed. Another important result is that only two socioeconomic variables (monthly income and education level) are related to two recycling behavior variables. In addition, the population and government treat WEEE as ordinary waste, ignoring its contaminant potential. Despite the existence of relevant legislation concerning the treatment and disposal of WEEE, additional efforts will be required by the government in order to properly manage this type of waste on the island.

    Shelly, David R.; Hardebeck, Jeanne L.

    2010-01-01

    We precisely locate 88 tremor families along the central San Andreas Fault using a 3D velocity model and numerous P and S wave arrival times estimated from seismogram stacks of up to 400 events per tremor family. Maximum tremor amplitudes vary along the fault by at least a factor of 7, with by far the strongest sources along a 25 km section of the fault southeast of Parkfield. We also identify many weaker tremor families, which have largely escaped prior detection. Together, these sources extend 150 km along the fault, beneath creeping, transitional, and locked sections of the upper crustal fault. Depths are mostly between 18 and 28 km, in the lower crust. Epicenters are concentrated within 3 km of the surface trace, implying a nearly vertical fault. A prominent gap in detectible activity is located directly beneath the region of maximum slip in the 2004 magnitude 6.0 Parkfield earthquake.

    Using broadband (0-10 Hz) simulation procedures, we are assessing the ground motions that could be generated by different earthquake scenarios occurring on major strike-slip faults of the San Francisco Bay region. These simulations explicitly account for several important ground motion features, including rupture directivity, 3D basin response, and the depletion of high frequency ground motions that occurs for surface rupturing events. This work compliments ongoing USGS efforts to quantify the ground shaking hazards throughout the San Francisco Bay region. These efforts involve development and testing of a 3D velocity model for northern California (USGS Bay Area Velocity Model, version 05.1.0) using observations from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, characterization of 1906 rupture scenarios and ground motions, and the development and analysis of rupture scenarios on other Bay Area faults. The adequacy of the simulation model has been tested using ground motion data recorded during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and by comparison with the reported intensity data from the 1906 earthquake. Comparisons of the simulated broadband (0-10 Hz) ground motions with the recorded motions for the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake demonstrate that the modeling procedure matches the observations without significant bias over a broad range of frequencies, site types, and propagation distances. The Loma Prieta rupture model is based on a wavenumber-squared refinement of the Wald et al (1991) slip distribution, with the rupture velocity set at 75 percent of the local shear wave velocity and a Kostrov-type slip function having a rise time of about 1.4 sec. Simulations of 1906 scenario ruptures indicate very strong directivity effects to the north and south of the assumed epicenter, adjacent to San Francisco. We are currently analyzing additional earthquake scenarios on the Hayward-Rodgers Creek and San Andreas faults in order to provide a more comprehensive framework for assessing

  10. Structure and mechanics of the San Andreas-San Gregorio fault junction, San Francisco, California

    The right-lateral San Gregorio and San Andreas faults meet west of the Golden Gate near San Francisco. Coincident seismic reflection and refraction profiling across the San Gregorio and San Andreas faults south of their junction shows the crust between them to have formed shallow extensional basins that are dissected by parallel strike-slip faults. We employ a regional finite element model to investigate the long-term consequences of the fault geometry. Over the course of 2-3 m.y. of slip on the San Andreas-San Gregorio fault system, elongated extensional basins are predicted to form between the two faults. An additional consequence of the fault geometry is that the San Andreas fault is expected to have migrated eastward relative to the San Gregorio fault. We thus propose a model of eastward stepping right-lateral fault formation to explain the observed multiple fault strands and depositional basins. The current manifestation of this process might be the observed transfer of slip from the San Andreas fault east to the Golden Gate fault.

    Full Text Available La finca de Santa Anita es un espacio emblemático que aparece constantemente en la narrativa de Fernando Vallejo; a través del recuerdo de la finca podemos observar una cosmovisión, una manera de ver el mundo ligada al territorio dentro de una escritura literaria que constituye una práctica social fuertemente contextualizada. En este sentido, la imaginación puede ser entendida como un acto comprometido con la realidad y por ello se apreciará el mérito de las variaciones ideológicas y políticas de las agencias humanas y sociales que la escritura literaria pone en movimiento. Por tanto, se analizará el texto como un documento en el que la relación con el poder se presenta como un testimonio de la existencia de unas más o menos abiertas relaciones de lucha y conflicto.The farm of Santa Anita is an emblematic place constantly appearing in Fernando Vallejo's narrative. Through the memory of the farm, we see a worldview, a way of seeing the world linked to the region within a literary writing which constitutes a highly contextualized social practice. In this sense, we consider the imagination as an act committed to reality and therefore we will appraise the ideological and political changes of human and social agencies that literary writing set in motion. Therefore, we will analyze the text as a document in which the relationship with power is presented as a testimony of the existence of more or less opened relations of struggle and conflict.

    Full Text Available  Dopo gli anni 1980, la comunicazione politica delle e dei politici è diventata sempre più ibrida, mescolando intrattenimento e rappresentazione politica. Politici come Silvio Berlusconi, Beppe Grillo, ma anche Barack Obama pongono il proprio corpo al centro della rappresentazione mediatica, utilizzandolo non solo come canale di comunicazione, ma anche come fonte di intrattenimento. Prima ancora della “discesa in campo” di Silvio Berlusconi, il caso dell’ex presidente brasiliano Fernando Alfonso Collor de Mello mostra già nel 1989, in modo emblematico, come la fusione di politica e intrattenimento è diventata una delle principale tendenze della comunicazione politica. L’analisi della sua messa in scena da chiarezza a questa tendenza e rivela un fenomeno nuovo della messa in scena mediatica: l’apparizione del terzo corpo del politico.

    Full Text Available The kings Isabel I of Castile (1451-1504 and Fernando II of Aragon (1452-1516, well-known with Catholic Monarchs title, granted by Pope Alexander VI in 1496, made wide use of devises or imprese as a personal way of representation. Some of them were incorporated to the coat of arms of Spain during their reign, and today we can still see them sculptured in the stone of buildings of 15th and 16th centuries, painted in walls or ceilings or embroidered in flags. Several historians and philologists have tried to make sense of the main imprese used by these kings, but they have succeeded only partially. Emblems provide important information in order to understand the meaning (as it was in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries of the imprese with the motto TANTO MONTA. Besides that well-known devise, the Catholic Monarchs used others to which little attention has been paid till now.

    Full Text Available The core discussion in this paper focuses on the apprehension of the imaginary corresponding to the social reality of the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935. Our main concern lies on its descriptive effects according to an analysis of the homoerotic images that can be grasped in Ode Marítima by Álvaro de Campos, Pessoa’s most undisciplined and impetuous heteronym. Ode Marítima was first published in 1925 in Orpheu, a magazine that gave rise to Portuguese Modernism. We believe that the issues we highlight herein, based on the confrontation between the anguish felt by the ‘lyric I’ and the ‘closet’ (Sedgwick, 2007, permit a glimpse of the Pessoan imaginary coercively marked by heteronormativity.

  20. Fishes associated with spinner dolphins at Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, tropical Western Atlantic: an update and overview

    Ivan Sazima

    Full Text Available An update is presented for fish species associated with spinner dolphins at Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, tropical Western Atlantic, providing a general view of their diversity. The associates are mostly reef-dwelling fishes that feed on the dolphin wastes. Twelve species are habitual or occasional plankton-eaters and two species are herbivores that occasionally forage on floating pieces of algae. One species is a strict carnivore, one species is a hitchhiker that forages on a variety of foods including parasites and dead tissue from the dolphins, and one species is a carnivore that joins the dolphin groups to forage on schools of small fishes or squids. We predict that the list of fish associated with spinner dolphins will expand mostly with addition of habitual or occasional plankton-eaters.

    María Amalia Barchiesi

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available The novel La Virgen de los sicarios (Our Lady of the Assassins (1994 by Fernando Vallejo offers a terrifying vision of the apocalyptic and cultural transformations that took place in Colombia from receipt of the globalizing economic policies of the late nineteenth century. This is how a communication model circulated, based mainly on the acoustics which promoted interference and disruption in intersubjective relations, generating destruction and violence. The countless allusions to John’s Book of Revelation in the novel gives a prophetic and eschatological sense to the acoustic signs of an unfinished and devastating modernity which plagued Colombia at the end of last century, with no possibility of salvation. Vallejo's novel attributes this apocalyptic sense the "revelation" of an essential truth of the world and the people of Latin America, the crude unveiling of something hidden and secret, that is, the incorporeal effects of acoustic devices which, consciously or unconsciously, trigger and feed violence in Colombia.

    Coma blisters (CBs) are self-limited lesions that occur in regions of pressure during unconscious states classically induced by barbiturates. We report a case of CBs sans coma that were histologically confirmed in a 41-year-old woman who developed multiple tense abdominal bullae with surrounding erythema following a transatlantic flight. Interestingly, the patient was fully conscious and denied medication use or history of medical conditions. A clinical diagnosis of CBs was confirmed by histopathologic findings of eccrine gland necrosis, a hallmark of these bulIous lesions.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Polymorphism of the gene for apolipoprotein E (APOE is an important risk factor for the development of Alzheimer's disease. The ε4 allele of the APOE gene has been linked with a number of neuropsychiatric illnesses, and also with stress and depression among geriatric populations. OBJECTIVE: To identify APOE-ε4 polymorphism and correlate this with cognitive deficit among the elderly population of the island of Fernando de Noronha. METHOD: Neuropsychiatric tests (mini-mental state examination, verbal fluency test and clock drawing test were applied to 52 elderly people without Alzheimer's disease. DNA was isolated from peripheral blood and genotyping of APOE was done by the PCR-RFLP method. RESULTS: 87% of the elderly population (mean age 69.6±7.0 had cognitive deficit. CONCLUSION: The observed frequency of the ε4 allele was 10%, but the correlation between the presence of ε4 and cognitive deficit in this population was not statistically significant.INTRODUÇÃO: Polimorfismos no gene da apoliproteína E (APOE são importantes fatores de risco para o desenvolvimento da doença de Alzheimer (DA.

    Full Text Available Este artigo analisa a trajetória social, intelectual e profissional de Fernando Henrique Cardoso para entender os diferentes recursos sociais e disposições pessoais utilizados em sua carreira como sociólogo e em suas atividades como especialista da política. Busca demonstrar que os capitais sociais e as disposições responsáveis pelo prestígio como pesquisador e professor de ciências sociais foram distintos dos aplicados no domínio da política, permitindo sua rápida ascensão à presidência da República. Depois de estudar suas origens familiares, focaliza seus investimentos escolares e a escolha do ofício de sociólogo, a carreira promissora sendo bloqueada pelo golpe de 1964. O exílio permitiu a extensão das atividades e o reconhecimento internacional, reinvestidos em novo concurso para a USP; o AI-5 o conduzirá à dupla condição de cientista social e de um dos líderes da frente de oposições aos militares. Por fim, analisa-se a reconversão de seus recursos sociais e pessoais na profissão política.This article analyzes Fernando Henrique Cardoso's social, intellectual and professional trajectory in order to understand the different social resources and personal dispositions carried out in his career as sociologist or in his activities as a professional politician. It seeks to prove that the social capitals and the dispositions that might explain his prestige as researcher and professor of social sciences were very different from those required in the political domain, the ones allowing his fast rise to be the president of the Republic. After having examined his family origins, it focuses his scholar investments and the choice of the sociologist's occupation, a promising career suddenly blocked by the 1964 military coup. The exile encouraged new initiatives and brought him international appraisal, this moment being crowned with his access to the chair of political science at the University of São Paulo; the AI-5 enforced

    Full Text Available Este trabalho visou caracterizar e classificar Cambissolos de ocorrência comum no Arquipélago de Fernando de Noronha, com o objetivo de testar e contribuir para o desenvolvimento do Sistema Brasileiro de Classificação de Solos (SiBCS. Além disso, uma melhor compreensão desses solos e de sua distribuição na paisagem é de grande importância no planejamento do uso da terra, para nortear ações governamentais visando à exploração sustentável desse complexo turístico-ecológico. Com base no Mapa Detalhado de Solos do Arquipélago de Fernando de Noronha, seis perfis de Cambissolos representativos da área foram selecionados, descritos e coletados, visando à caracterização morfológica, física, química e mineralógica. Os Cambissolos foram adequadamente classificados segundo a nova versão do SiBCS, que incluiu o grande grupo "Ta eutroférrico", sugerido durante o desenvolvimento deste trabalho. Os solos do Arquipélago refletem nas suas propriedades as características marcantes do material de origem vulcânico, do clima tropical com franco domínio oceânico e do relevo. Os Cambissolos Háplicos Ta eutroférricos típicos ocupam as posições mais preservadas do planalto central da ilha principal e possuem os melhores atributos físicos e químicos para utilização agrícola ou geotécnica. Os Cambissolos Háplicos Ta eutróficos lépticos, relacionados com relevos acidentados e geralmente associados com Neossolos Litólicos e afloramentos de rocha, são solos que requerem proteção especial devido à sua alta instabilidade ao processo erosivo. Por sua vez, os Cambissolos Háplicos Sódicos vertissólicos, que ocorrem em áreas ligeiramente rebaixadas do planalto central, apresentam sérios problemas de drenagem e argilas expansivas. Quimicamente, os solos apresentam teores elevados a extremamente elevados de P extraível, de distribuição irregular tanto entre perfis como nos horizontes, o que sugere a influência de fontes

  8. O Cadáver, um emblema da morte em “Ápeiron”, de Caio Fernando Abreu

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    André Luiz Gomes de Jesus

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available The aim of the present article is to investigate the procedures used by Caio Fernando Abreu to construct the representations of death in his work. For this, I take, here, the short-story “Apeiron”, published in the book Inventário do irremediável (1970. In this text, the reflection about death as well as the dissociation process connected to it is triggered by the representation of the mental states of a corpse, a kind of allegorical emblem of the human finitude, since this can be seen as the personification of death. Moreover, the emblematic nature of the dead body also refers to the emptiness of the human life. The short-story establishes an ambiguity, especially because the discursive choice (indirect and free indirect discourse does not allow the reader to relate the ideas presented in the text directly s to the corpse-protagonist or to the narrator, leading him to question if the text is the product of the narrator’s imagination or the unusual maintenance of the dead man’s mental life. Whether the text can be seen as the imagination about death or experience of death, “Apeiron” shows, through the death process,  that Abreu  reflects  on  the sense of the existence.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alfredo Alejandro Gugliano

    1999-01-01

    Full Text Available Desde el primer periodo en que se elije a Fernando H. Cardoso como presidente de Brasil, en 1994, las fuerzas políticas conservadoras apostaron por la mediatización de la voluntad reformista de la sociedad brasileña, a través del perfil renovador del antiguo sociólogo de la dependencia. Así, el pacto social y los consensos se orientaron al servicio de las élites económicas, quienes suponían en riesgo la gobernabilidad del país, después del ascenso de Luis Inácio Lula da Silva entre las preferencias de los electores. En 1998, el argumento de la gobernabilidad conservadora cobró renovada importancia en la reelección del presidente Cardoso, aunque ahora a causa de la reciente crisis finaciera y bursátil, cuyo manejo se atribuyeron las mismas élites que proyectan la modernización conservadora de Brasil.

Buscaremos evidenciar a presença do poeta português Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935 e de seus heterônimos, Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis e Álvaro de Campos, nos três contos mencionados, pautados por considerações do próprio Agualusa, que procura estabelecer, por meio de sua obra, um diálogo frequente entre as literaturas africana, brasileira e portuguesa, em conformidade com a sua postura de divulgar a cultura e, em particular, a literatura africana para o mundo, diluindo fronteiras que possam separar as literaturas de expressão portuguesa.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    ENZO SOLARI

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo intenta enjuiciar la argumentación de Fernando Atria acerca de los derechos sociales, según la cual estos no deben ser institucionalizados como derechos subjetivos que protegen “primo et per se” un interés particular de sus titulares exigible en concreto judicialmente, sino de acuerdo con instituciones determinadas democráticamente que protegen una dimensión de la ciudadanía caracte- rizable no tanto por el interés de cada cual cuanto por el interés recíproco y general. Para ello, muestra la unilateralidad de esa argumentación: aunque el legislador y la Administración sean los protagonistas del desarrollo de derechos sociales, eso no obsta a que haya buenas razones para que la teoría jurídica y la jurisprudencia –comparadamente y en Chile– los hayan tratado como derechos justiciables, mas según una justiciabilidad limitada, no activista, sino basada en el potencial epistémico de la jurisdicción para mejorar dialógica y deliberativamente la política democrática.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bartolomé Herrero, Bonifacio

    1998-12-01

    Full Text Available In 1637 the historian Diego de Colmenares included in his "Historia de la insigne ciudad de Segovia" the celebration in 1303 of a diocesan synod in the cathedral of Segovia by the bishop Fernando Sarracín. From the mentioned book, the existence of this synod was publishing till now in historical studies and documentary repertoires. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that the synod of 1303 was never celebrated and its existence is just a wrong elucidation of Colmenares, and it has not been absolutely explained till now.[fr] S'est répandu jusqu'à nos jours, aussi bien par des études historiques que par des répertoires documentaires. Le but de ce travail est de prouver qu'en réalité ce synode ne s'est jamais célébré et que son existence est seulement due à une erreur d'interprétation de Colmenares qui n'avait pas été complètement éclaircie jusqu'à maintenant.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Landavazo, Marco Antonio

    2001-04-01

    Full Text Available This article analyzes what the author called the «process of sacralization» of King Ferdinand VII’s image in New Spain, and its political and ideological consequences in the Mexican Independence War. The people’s believes, values and attitudes towards the Monarchy were an essential part of the local political culture. These played a decisive role in the course of political and social events of the period.

    En este artículo se describe y analiza lo que he llamado el proceso de sacralización de la figura del rey Fernando VII en Nueva España y las implicaciones políticas e ideológicas que ello tuvo en el curso de la guerra de independencia mexicana, como una forma de mostrar que las creencias, los valores y las actitudes que los novohispanos poseían en torno a la institución monárquica jugaban un papel fundamental en la definición de la cultura política de la época, y condicionaron de hecho, en buena medida, el curso de los acontecimientos más relevantes del periodo.

  15. El tambor blanqueado o la cubanidad musical, en Fernando Ortíz, como vanguardia de las resistencias transculturales

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Antonio González Alcantud

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available El etnólogo cubano Fernando Ortíz acuñó en los años treinta el concepto de transculturalidad para definir la realidad cultural y musical nueva que la identidad cubana le imponía. Este concepto partía de la conjunción de lo blanco y lo negro, con exclusión de lo indoantillano definitivamente desaparecido para él. En el análisis general del concepto, la música diabólica del tambor africano y su aceptación final por la música nacional cubana ocupa un lugar relevante. Una vez trazada la nueva realidad conceptual a Ortíz le sale un seguidor de calidad, el antropólogo Malinowski, que alza la transculturalidad como bandera de combate frente a la aculturación. Hoy día el término transculturalidad forma parte del discurso de la poscolonialidad, pero tiene una virtud frente a otros, como culturas híbridas: que no ha perdido en nombre de la globalización sus referentes locales.

  16. Fernando vallejo: y la clausura ciudadanía estética de la literatura mundial

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Brantley Nicholson

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo encara deliberaciones actuales sobre la literatura global, desde la perspectiva de la novela urbana colombiana del siglo XX. Explorando la tensión entre las historias de las narrativas globales y locales, el autor examina hasta qué punto se puede defender que la literatura global y sus apéndices socioculturales se prestan a proyectos emancipatorios, y hasta qué punto esos apéndices simplifican en exceso los espacios de producción literaria densa. Ubicando la Weltliteratur de Goethe en el contexto de una Colombia estéticamente globalizada, e invocando la relación particularmente espinosa entre Fernando Vallejo y Gabriel García Márquez como caso de estudio, este artículo avanza que las casas editoriales internacionales y las culturas de la crítica crean una ciudadanía estética limitante que sigue siendo dominada por las decisiones de mercadeo de las grandes casas editoriales y el gusto de los públicos lectores, muy alejados del contexto de los bestsellers “periféricos”.

  17. Esquemas simbólicos y mito personal: lectura de Memorial del olvido de Fernando Operé

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sergio Arlandis López

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Cuando una trayectoria poética queda condensada en un volumen la crítica literaria siempre tiende a buscar claves de continuidad o de ruptura dentro de la misma. El presente trabajo pretende esclarecer algunos de los fundamentos temáticos que han definido la singular obra del poeta Fernando Operé, fijándonos, sobre todo, en la protagonización lírica y en el esquema simbólico-mítico que vertebra su obra Memorial del Olvido. Para ello, hemos tomado como referencia las pautas, directas o indirectas, de estudios mitocríticos como los de Gilbert Durand (1986 y 1993, el modelo del monomito de Campbell (1999 y los esquemas simbólico-rituales estudiados por Eliade (1999 y 2002 y Bachelard (2000 principalmente. Así, podemos comprobar también que dichos modelos exegéticos son perfectamente válidos y aplicables para el análisis de toda una obra, tal y como postuló Charles Mauron a la hora de tratar el concepto de mito personal dentro de la creatividad humana.

MÉTODOS: foi realizado um estudo série de casos durante o período de agosto de 2004 e junho de 2005. No total fizeram parte do estudo 50 crianças. Utilizou-se um questionário pré-codificado e foi montado um banco de dados no software Epi-info 6.0. As amostras de fezes foram analisadas quanto à presença do rotavírus, através de técnicas de imunoensaio enzimático. RESULTADOS: verificou-se que a freqüência do rotavírus na doença diarréica do grupo estudado foi de 24,0%. Em geral as famílias eram pobres, 96,0% delas com renda familiar per capita inferior a R$150,00. Com relação às crianças dois terços (60,4% receberam leite materno por um período inferior a três meses e 10% delas nunca haviam sido vascinadas. CONCLUSÕES: o estudo traz contribuição para o conhecimento da etiologia da diarréia na criança com desnutrição, no entanto, se faz necessária a realização de estudos com um maior número de crianças para que os resultados possam ser mais conclusivos.OBJECTIVES: to establish rotavirus incidence in diarrheic diseases in children from 0 to five years of age, with moderate and severe malnutrition hospitalized at Instituto Materno Infantil Prof. Fernando Figueira (IMIP.

    Full Text Available A trajetória de Fernando Souza do Ó, importante liderança espírita da cidade de Santa Maria no processo de organização do movimento espírita local, ao assumir a função de “propagador” da doutrina no município no contexto de 1930 a 1940, permite evidenciar os conflitos e concorrências existentes no campo religioso na Cidade de Santa Maria. Nesse sentido, em nosso estudo, partimos da preocupação de como suas ideias representaram uma estratégia de inserção para o movimento espírita na cidade de Santa Maria, e para tanto, recorremos ao conjunto de escritos do autor veiculados na imprensa leiga (Diário do Interior. Nessa lógica, o presente artigo propõe-se a discutir, tendo por referência conceitos de Campo religioso de Pierre Bourdieu e representações de Roger Chartier, questões de trajetória e biografia do personagem, de modo a refletir sobre as dificuldades empíricas acerca da produção de conhecimento histórico a partir do indivíduo. Assim, busca-se evidenciar de que forma as escolhas individuais, os projetos e lutas politicas que permitem a observação de processos, relações no fluxo temporal, trazendo o sujeito na sua historicidade, a sua compreensão de si e do mundo, possibilitando a inferência do movimento espírita em sua dimensão holística ao trazer à tona o conjunto de práticas e ideias presentes no seu interior de modo relacional ao contexto político em que se insere

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo objetiva analisar os discursos do Presidente Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-2003 com vistas a descortinar a aproximação, à época, entre o líder político e a leitura democrática das relações entre negros e brancos no Brasil. Perspectiva esta suscitada no ensaio “Casa-grande&Senzala” (1933 de Gilberto Freyre (1900-1987.  Cabe explicitar que pertinência da análise discursiva do ex-Presidente da República recai sobre as ambiguidades discursivas, cujas mesmas retratam o processo de ruptura e continuidade das iniquidades sociais gestadas sob o signo da “raça”. O  corpus documental do artigo discorre sobre as seguintes preleções: “Assinatura do Decreto que cria o Grupo de Trabalho Interministerial para Valorização da População Negra, Seminário Internacional Multiculturalismo e Racismo: o papel da ação afirmativa nos estados democráticos contemporâneos e Dia Nacional de Valorização da Consciência Negra” (1996. Para metodologia, a pesquisa adota a teoria de Michael Foucault (1926-1984 concernente à obra “A Ordem do Discurso”  (1996. Tendo em vista que nesta o sociólogo analisa que “em toda sociedade a produção do discurso é ao mesmo tempo controlada, selecionada, organizada e redistribuída por certo número de procedimentos que têm por função conjurar seus poderes e perigos, dominar seu caminho aleatório, esquivar sua pesada e temível materialidade” (FOUCAULT, 1966, p.9

    1997-12-31

    The first planning studies that gave rise to the San Bernabe substation go back to year 1985. The main circumstance that supports this decision is the gradual restriction for electric power generation that has been suffering the Miguel Aleman Hydro System, until its complete disappearance, to give priority to the potable water supply through the Cutzamala pumping system, that feeds in an important way Mexico City and the State of Mexico. In this document the author describes the construction project of the San Bernabe Substation; mention is made of the technological experiences obtained during the construction and its geographical location is shown, as well as the one line diagram of the same [Espanol] Los primeros estudios de planeacion que dieron origen a la subestacion San Bernabe se remontan al ano de 1985.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to think about Fernando Pessoa’s Book of Disquiet, focusing on three forms of estrangement: the poetics of estrangement, the editorial estrangement and the translation as a kind of estrangement. The first one will be considered  through  the reading of In the Forest of Estrangement, a text that carries the concept in  its  title and differs from the rest of the fragments. The second one will be considered from the point of view of  the discourses of the different organizers, editors and translators, the “others” that play an “author-role” in the process of republishing the book. The last part brings the English version In the Forest of Estrangement by Richard Zenith (1999, in order to discuss his fidelity intentions in contrast with the text’s transformations. In tension with this book, published and republished after the author’s death, a private signature remains: the cipher L. do D., which Fernando Pessoa used to classify the texts that belonged to a book kept  unpublished until his death and that was composed such as life.

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available Fernando Weyler y Laviña (1808-1879, fue un eminente médico militar, doctor en cirugía, académico, botánico y notable escritor, que quizá ha sido oscurecido por la gran personalidad de su hijo Valeriano -capitán general del Ejército Español, entre otros cargos militares y civiles- pero su trayectoria profesional, intelectual y científica no desmerece para nada frente a la de su hijo, a pesar de haber sido algo olvidado por la historia. Weyler nació en plena Guerra de la Independencia, una de las épocas más convulsas de nuestra nación, teniendo que realizar sus estudios primarios en Montpellier, trasladándose posteriormente a Barcelona, ciudad en la que terminaría el Bachillerato e iniciaría sus estudios de Medicina, simultaneándolos con los realizados en París. Una vez obtenidos los títulos de licenciatura, en 1829, y el doctorado en 1831, ingresa, por oposición en el Cuerpo de Sanidad Militar. Su trayectoria castrense fue brillante iniciándola en Palma de Mallorca y posteriormente, a petición propia, en Filipinas, regresando a la Península por enfermedad, donde pasó a ejercer de Profesor de la Plana Mayor del Ejército de Cataluña. Participó en múltiples operaciones militares durante la Guerra Carlista entre los años 1838 y 1840, siendo merecedor de diferentes condecoraciones por su destacado comportamiento. Desarrolló una importante labor en el Hospital Militar de Mallorca de Palma, pasando en 1850 a ser jefe de Sanidad Militar de las Islas Baleares. En 1859 fue nombrado jefe de Sanidad del Cuerpo de Observación sobre las costas de África, pasando a Ceuta y participando en la batalla de Wad-Ras. En 1863 fue nombrado inspector en comisión del personal y hospitales de Melilla, pasando posteriormente a Palma de Mallorca para seguir encargándose del Servicio de la Subinspección de las Islas Baleares.

  18. On the seismic behavior of the main tower of the San Felice sul Panaro (Italy) fortress

    2016-12-01

    The medieval fortresses are a very common and distinctive type among the Emilian historical constructions and the earthquakes of May 20th and 29th, 2012 underlined their high vulnerability. Among those heavily damaged, there is the fortress of San Felice sul Panaro located between the two epicenters. This study presents some FE results regarding the behavior under seismic actions of the main tower (Mastio tower). The Mastio has peculiar geometric features and represents a typical example of non-isolated tower. In fact, it is constrained in very different ways by the surrounding parts of the fortress along two of its sides: on the north side it is constrained by the perimeter wall until one third of his high, while a stiffer building constrains it on the west side. In order to remodel the entire fortress, a multidisciplinary project involving the Municipality of San Felice sul Panaro and four Universities of the Emilia- Romagna (Bologna, Ferrara, Parma and Modena) together with the University of Genoa is going on. The study, oriented to the structural restoration, produced an accurate survey of the entire building including a fine definition of architectural peculiarities, historical stages and materials evolution. Based on such geometrical data, we developed a detailed 3D realistic mesh, with a point-by-point characterization of each single geometric element. We performed both pushover and nonlinear dynamic analyses using accelerograms data measured near the fortress on May 29th. A damage-plasticity material model exhibiting softening in both tension and compression, already available in the commercial code Abaqus, has been used for masonry in nonlinear dynamic analyses. On the other hand, pushover analyses have been performed utilizing similar constitutive equations available on code DIANA. The effects of higher modes of vibration have been taken into account by means of the modal pushover analysis technique. For the sake of conciseness, only some preliminary

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Martínez González, Javier

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available The Manifesto of the Alhambra (1953 is among the most remarkable texts in the historiography of 20th-century Spanish architecture. This status has made it the subject of several studies, none of which has carefully addressed the question of its authorship. Although the Manifesto was signed by 24 Spanish architects, one of them –Fernando Chueca Goitia– considered himself to be its author. So, to whom should the text really be attributed: to the 24 signatories, or to only one of them? By studying Chueca Goitia’s career and through a careful analysis of both the composition and content of the text, this article attempts to show the role played by Fernando Chueca Goitia in the genesis of the Manifesto of the Alhambra, and the extent to which he could claim authorship of the text.El Manifiesto de la Alhambra (1953 es uno de los textos más singulares de la historiografía arquitectónica española del siglo XX. Esta condición le ha hecho objeto de diversos estudios, ninguno de los cuales ha llegado a abordar con detenimiento la cuestión de su autoría. Aunque el Manifiesto venía firmado por veinticuatro arquitectos españoles, uno de ellos –Fernando Chueca Goitia– lo consideró siempre como obra suya. Entonces, ¿a quién debe atribuirse realmente el texto? ¿A los veinticuatro firmantes, o a uno solo de ellos? El estudio de la trayectoria e intereses del arquitecto e historiador español y, principalmente, el análisis detenido de la composición y contenido del texto, permite establecer el papel que Chueca Goitia desempeñó en la génesis del Manifiesto de la Alhambra, y valorar en qué medida y hasta qué punto pudo considerarlo una obra suya.

    The Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, as a modern master for his outstanding poems, he expressed the self-splitting in modern society. As a writer born after 1980s , Wang William, initiatively accepted the influence of Fernando Pessoa, created The Love of Fernando Pessoa, Taking the “self-splitting” of Fernando Pessoa as an entry point, he not only imitated Fernando Pessoa, showing the universality of human beings’ “self-splitting” in a modern society,but also made some innovation on the basis of imitation, showing the “self-splitting” under “self-deception” from the unique perspective of“love”.%葡萄牙诗人费尔南多·佩索阿作为现代主义大师以其杰出的诗才表达了现代社会中人的自我分裂。而作为80后作家的王威廉主动接受费尔南多·佩索阿的影响,创作出《佩索阿的爱情》,以佩索阿的“自我分裂”为切入口,不仅对其进行了模仿———表现出现代社会中人的“自我分裂”的普遍性,而且在模仿的基础上进行了创新———在“爱情”的独特视阈下表现出这种“自我分裂”下的人的“自欺”状态。

The main source of data is the result of head-count votes. Three aspects are emphasized: the degree of party discipline; the parties' rate of support for bills sponsored by the Administration; and the impact of maverick voting and absenteeism on the voting results. The link between the two dimensions treated separately by the literature (party discipline and party support for the Administration shows that the strategy of evaluating Presidential power simply by counting the members of Representatives formally belonging to the Executive's constituency should be done with caution in countries with undisciplined parties and high absenteeism during head-count votes.

    Full Text Available This article approaches to the function carried out by the seigniorial poweraround situations of conflict which brought its vassals face to face and affected its exercise of authority. We analyse as an example the struggle between urban factions for the counciliar government happened in Paredes de Nava, a seigniorial town upon the infante Fernando of Antequera, in 1401-1403. In base of this case, we can observe that these clashes were conditioned by a great variety of factors and the remarkable sophistication of resources deployed by the seigniorial sphere for facing them. As we could see, justice, peace, imposition and mediation are finely articulated into seigniorial speech and action.

    En este artículo nos acercamos a la función desempeñada por el poder señorial en situaciones de conflicto que enfrentaban a los vasallos bajo su dominio y afectaban al ejercicio de su autoridad. Hemos tomado como ejemplo el conflicto entre bandos por el gobierno concejil desarrollado entre 1401 y 1403 en la villa castellana de Paredes de Nava, lugar de señorío del infante Fernando de Antequera. A partir del mismo, podemos observar la diversidad de factores que condicionaban este tipo de pugnas y la sofisticación de los mecanismos desplegados por la instancia señorial para afrontarlas. Como veremos, discurso y acción señoriales se articulan en una combinación de justicia, paz, imposición y mediación.

  4. The regulatory epicenter of miRNAs

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Ashwani Jha; Mrigaya Mehra; Ravi Shankar

    2011-09-01

    miRNAs are small non-coding RNAs with average length of ∼21 bp. miRNA formation seems to be dependent upon multiple factors besides Drosha and Dicer, in a tissue/stage-specific manner, with interplay of several specific binding factors. In the present study, we have investigated transcription factor binding sites in and around the genomic sequences of precursor miRNAs and RNA-binding protein (RBP) sites in miRNA precursor sequences, analysed and tested in comprehensive manner. Here, we report that miRNA precursor regions are positionally enriched for binding of transcription factors as well as RBPs around the 3′ end of mature miRNA region in 5′ arm. The pattern and distribution of such regulatory sites appears to be a characteristic of precursor miRNA sequences when compared with non-miRNA sequences as negative dataset and tested statistically. When compared with 1 kb upstreamregions, a sudden sharp peak for binding sites arises in the enriched zone near the mature miRNA region. An expression-data-based correlation analysis was performed between such miRNAs and their corresponding transcription factors and RBPs for this region. Some specific groups of binding factors and associated miRNAs were identified. We also identified some of the overrepresented transcription factors and associated miRNAs with high expression correlation values which could be useful in cancer-related studies. The highly correlated groups were found to host experimentally validated composite regulatory modules, in which Lmo2-GATA1 appeared as the predominant one. For many of RBP–miRNAs associations, co-expression similarity was also evident among the associated miRNA common to given RBPs, supporting the Regulon model, suggesting a common role and common control of these miRNAs by the associated RBPs. Based on our findings, we propose that the observed characteristic distribution of regulatory sites in precursor miRNA sequence regions could be critical inmiRNA transcription, processing, stability and formation and are important for therapeutic studies. Our findings also support the recently proposed theory of self-sufficient mode of transcription by miRNAs, which states that miRNA transcription can be carried out in host-independent mode too.

    Full Text Available Fernando Weyler y Laviña (1808-1879, fue un eminente médico militar, doctor en cirugía, académico, botánico y notable escritor, que quizá ha sido oscurecido por la gran personalidad de su hijo Valeriano -capitán general del Ejército Español, entre otros cargos militares y civiles- pero su trayectoria profesional, intelectual y científica no desmerece para nada frente a la de su hijo, a pesar de haber sido algo olvidado por la historia. Weyler nació en plena Guerra de la Independencia, una de las épocas más convulsas de nuestra nación, teniendo que realizar sus estudios primarios en Montpellier, trasladándose posteriormente a Barcelona, ciudad en la que terminaría el Bachillerato e iniciaría sus estudios de Medicina, simultaneándolos con los realizados en París. Una vez obtenidos los títulos de licenciatura, en 1829, y el doctorado en 1831, ingresa, por oposición en el Cuerpo de Sanidad Militar. Su trayectoria castrense fue brillante iniciándola en Palma de Mallorca y posteriormente, a petición propia, en Filipinas, regresando a la Península por enfermedad, donde pasó a ejercer de Profesor de la Plana Mayor del Ejército de Cataluña. Participó en múltiples operaciones militares durante la Guerra Carlista entre los años 1838 y 1840, siendo merecedor de diferentes condecoraciones por su destacado comportamiento. Desarrolló una importante labor en el Hospital Militar de Mallorca de Palma, pasando en 1850 a ser jefe de Sanidad Militar de las Islas Baleares. En 1859 fue nombrado jefe de Sanidad del Cuerpo de Observación sobre las costas de África, pasando a Ceuta y participando en la batalla de Wad-Ras.

    Ecologic studies of Venezuelan encephalitis (VE) virus at a marsh habitat near the epicenter of the 1969 outbreak in Guatemala revealed that the virus was enzootic there. VE virus was isolated yearly during 1968-1973 from sentinel hamsters exposed during the rainy seasons and from mosquitoes collected during July and August 1970. Hamsters yielded 41 strains of VE virus and virus was detected within 2 km of the edge of the marsh, in its interior, and at its western extreme 18 km from the central study site at La Avellana. One strain of virus came from a hamster that died in the dry season of January 1970. Culex mosquitoes yielded 20 strains of VE virus and Mansonia and Aedes one each. Culex (Melanoconion) and Aedes taeniorhynchus were most prevalent near the marsh. Hemagglutination-inhitibion (HI) and neutralization antibody tests of sera showed that wild terrestrial mammals (opossums and rodents), humans, and dogs, but not wild birds, were frequently infected. Seven of 16 susceptible residents of villages at the edge of the marsh developed antibodies without symptoms during an 18-month period between September 1971 and February 1973. Only 1 of 5 sentinel rabbits, and none of 30 sentinel chickens developed VE HI antibody during August-September 1971, a period when virus activity was readily detected by the use of sentinel hamsters. Five strains of group C arbovirus (one identified as Nepuyo) were recovered from sentinel hamsters during 1968 to 1970, and one strain of Nepuyo virus was isolated from the blood of a person with a febrile illness during 1972. Two strains of Patois group arboviruses were isolated from Culex mosquitoes during 1970.

    2009-01-06

    We report small angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments on two crude oils. Analysis of the high-Q SANS region has probed the asphaltene aggregates in the nanometer length scale. We find that the radius of gyration decreases with increasing temperature. We show that SANS measurements on crude oils give similar aggregate sizes to those found from SANS measurements of asphaltenes redispersed in deuterated toluene. The combined use of SANS and V-SANS on crude oil samples has allowed the determination of the radius of gyration of large scale asphaltene aggregates of approximately 0.45 microm. This has been achieved by the fitting of Beaucage functions over two size regimes. Analysis of the fitted Beaucage functions at very low-Q has shown that the large scale aggregates are not simply made by aggregation of all the smaller nanoaggregates. Instead, they are two different aggregates coexisting.

  13. Vertical tectonic deformation associated with the San Andreas fault zone offshore of San Francisco, California

    Ryan, H. F.; Parsons, T.; Sliter, R. W.

    2008-10-01

    A new fault map of the shelf offshore of San Francisco, California shows that faulting occurs as a distributed shear zone that involves many fault strands with the principal displacement taken up by the San Andreas fault and the eastern strand of the San Gregorio fault zone. Structures associated with the offshore faulting show compressive deformation near where the San Andreas fault goes offshore, but deformation becomes extensional several km to the north off of the Golden Gate. Our new fault map serves as the basis for a 3-D finite element model that shows that the block between the San Andreas and San Gregorio fault zone is subsiding at a long-term rate of about 0.2-0.3 mm/yr, with the maximum subsidence occurring northwest of the Golden Gate in the area of a mapped transtensional basin. Although the long-term rates of vertical displacement primarily show subsidence, the model of coseismic deformation associated with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake indicates that uplift on the order of 10-15 cm occurred in the block northeast of the San Andreas fault. Since 1906, 5-6 cm of regional subsidence has occurred in that block. One implication of our model is that the transfer of slip from the San Andreas fault to a fault 5 km to the east, the Golden Gate fault, is not required for the area offshore of San Francisco to be in extension. This has implications for both the deposition of thick Pliocene-Pleistocene sediments (the Merced Formation) observed east of the San Andreas fault, and the age of the Peninsula segment of the San Andreas fault.

Intervenes the literary text, deignes the characters grouped in pairs keeping, although with a new formula, the scheme of ‘parallel lives’ of Plutarch. Each character retains the most peculiar features of the historical figure he represents, although, thanks to a clever literary creation, also acquires new roles. Caesar, though has not a dramatic role in the play, stops feeling his presence as an antagonist who embodies all the defects of tyranny against the virtues of the republic. The characters are making a description of the features that have characterized him as a character reference throughout all time, beyond the mere classical inspiration.En la obra de teatro Catón, un republicano contra César, Fernando Savater adapta con maestría muchísimas reminiscencias clásicas, sobre todo de Plutarco, para plantear una reflexión sobre política y filosofía. Mediante una excelente intervención del texto clásico, perfila a los personajes agrupados por parejas manteniendo, aunque con nueva fórmula, el esquema de las «vidas paralelas» de Plutarco. Cada personaje conserva los rasgos más peculiares de la figura histórica a la que representa, pero, gracias a una hábil recreación literaria, adquiere también nuevos papeles. César, aunque no tiene en la obra un papel dramático, deja sentir su presencia como un antagonista que personifica todos los defectos de la tiranía frente a las virtudes de la república. Los personajes van haciendo una descripción de los rasgos que le han caracterizado como personaje de referencia a lo largo de todos los tiempos, más allá de la mera inspiración clásica.

  11. Abrupt along-strike change in tectonic style: San Andreas Fault zone, San Francisco Peninsula

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zoback, Mary Lou; Jachens, Robert C.; Olson, Jean A.

    1999-05-01

    Seismicity and high-resolution aeromagnetic data are used to define an abrupt change from compressional to extensional tectonism within a 10- to 15-km-wide zone along the San Andreas fault on the San Francisco Peninsula and offshore from the Golden Gate. This 100-km-long section of the San Andreas fault includes the hypocenter of the Mw = 7.8 1906 San Francisco earthquake as well as the highest level of persistent microseismicity along that ˜470-km-long rupture. We define two distinct zones of deformation along this stretch of the fault using well-constrained relocations of all post-1969 earthquakes based a joint one-dimensional velocity/hypocenter inversion and a redetermination of focal mechanisms. The southern zone is characterized by thrust- and reverse-faulting focal mechanisms with NE trending P axes that indicate "fault-normal" compression in 7- to 10-km-wide zones of deformation on both sides of the San Andreas fault. A 1- to 2-km-wide vertical zone beneath the surface trace of the San Andreas is characterized by its almost complete lack of seismicity. The compressional deformation is consistent with the young, high topography of the Santa Cruz Mountains/Coast Ranges as the San Andreas fault makes a broad restraining left bend (˜10°) through the southernmost peninsula. A zone of seismic quiescence ˜15 km long separates this compressional zone to the south from a zone of combined normal-faulting and strike-slip-faulting focal mechanisms (including a ML = 5.3 earthquake in 1957) on the northernmost peninsula and offshore on the Golden Gate platform. Both linear pseudogravity gradients, calculated from the aeromagnetic data, and seismic reflection data indicate that the San Andreas fault makes an abrupt ˜3-km right step less than 5 km offshore in this northern zone. A similar right-stepping (dilatational) geometry is also observed for the subparallel San Gregorio fault offshore. Persistent seismicity and extensional tectonism occur within the San Andreas

MÉTODOS: estudo descritivo, do tipo corte transversal, cujos dados foram coletados de um banco de dados do Sistema de Informações sobre Nascidos Vivos do qual foram selecionados todos os registros de recém-nascidos com malformação fetal. A partir daí selecionaram-se os recém-nascidos com DFTN ocorridos no período considerado. RESULTADOS: entre os 24.964 nascimentos, foram registrados 709 recém-nascidos apresentando alguma malformação ao nascer. Ao se considerar apenas os recém nascidos com DFTN, observaram-se 124 registros, representando uma prevalência de 0,5% entre nascimentos naquele período. Os recém-nascidos com DFTN apresentaram características semelhantes aos recém-nascidos com malformações, de uma forma geral. A maioria (68,5% desses recém-nascidos era de parto cesariano e 37,7% apresentaram baixo peso ao nascer. CONCLUSÕES: a prevalência de DFTN entre os nascimentos registrados no Centro de Atenção à Mulher do Instituto Materno Infantil Prof. Fernando Figueira foi elevada (5/1000 nascimentos e isso, provavelmente é reflexo do fato de a maternidade ser referência para gestações de alto-risco.OBJECTIVES: to determine neural tube closing defects in newborns delivered in the maternity ward of the Women Care Center of the Instituto Materno Infantil Prof. Fernando Figueira (IMIP.

  14. Liquefaction-induced lateral spreading in Oceano, California, during the 2003 San Simeon Earthquake

    The December 22, 2003, San Simeon, California, (M6.5) earthquake caused damage to houses, road surfaces, and underground utilities in Oceano, California. The community of Oceano is approximately 50 miles (80 km) from the earthquake epicenter. Damage at this distance from a M6.5 earthquake is unusual. To understand the causes of this damage, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted extensive subsurface exploration and monitoring of aftershocks in the months after the earthquake. The investigation included 37 seismic cone penetration tests, 5 soil borings, and aftershock monitoring from January 28 to March 7, 2004. The USGS investigation identified two earthquake hazards in Oceano that explain the San Simeon earthquake damage?site amplification and liquefaction. Site amplification is a phenomenon observed in many earthquakes where the strength of the shaking increases abnormally in areas where the seismic-wave velocity of shallow geologic layers is low. As a result, earthquake shaking is felt more strongly than in surrounding areas without similar geologic conditions. Site amplification in Oceano is indicated by the physical properties of the geologic layers beneath Oceano and was confirmed by monitoring aftershocks. Liquefaction, which is also commonly observed during earthquakes, is a phenomenon where saturated sands lose their strength during an earthquake and become fluid-like and mobile. As a result, the ground may undergo large permanent displacements that can damage underground utilities and well-built surface structures. The type of displacement of major concern associated with liquefaction is lateral spreading because it involves displacement of large blocks of ground down gentle slopes or towards stream channels. The USGS investigation indicates that the shallow geologic units beneath Oceano are very susceptible to liquefaction. They include young sand dunes and clean sandy artificial fill that was used to bury and convert marshes into developable lots. Most of

    Full Text Available Post Occupancy Evaluation defines the methods and techniques to characterize the strength and weaknesses of a constructed structure by considering the users satisfaction in meeting their needs during the course of its use. This evaluation records the findings of the POE of the Pavillon Prof. Antônio Fernando Rodrigues, Maracanã campus of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ, relative to the environmental quality from the satisfaction of users. Results of the evaluation of the degree of satisfaction of the users reveal a positive response towards artificial illumination, artificial ventilation, the temperature in winter and in summer and the natural illumination. In general it was found that users considered the building well lit, properly temperature controlled and of appropriate size, but needed better soundproofing. The analysis led to recommendations for improvements in comforts and functionality of this environment. These findings can contribute to the improvement for future projects, avoiding the repetition of inadequacies and the consequent dissatisfaction of users, and for better post-occupancy management. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.12957/sustinere.2015.20004

    Full Text Available In the context of studies about space and school architecture, this article analyses the visual construction of the Fernando Gomes Elementary School, which was located in downtown Porto Alegre/RS, Brazil between 1913 and 1935. Designed by the engineer Afonso Hébert, head of the Department of Public Works in the State of Rio Grande do Sul/RS, the building was completed in 1922. In addition to functional elements, i.e., a large number of classrooms that would serve to increase the access of children to primary school, its monumental proportions incorporated a series of symbolic elements aligned with the ideals of the First Brazilian Republic (1889–1930. The documentary analysis was performed on the archives of the Directorship of Public Education and the Directorship of Public Works of Rio Grande do Sul, as well as various iconographic sources, capital improvement plans and periodicals of the time. The construction of the school inaugurated a new conception of the space and architecture of public elementary schools in the State, as the visible improvement and sanitation of the cities were considered of great importance in the period. The construction of school buildings was also one of the greatest advertising tools of the new Republican political regime.

    Little is known about toxoplasmosis in animals of the Fernando de Noronha Island, Brazil. Therefore, we investigated the prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in the total population of pet cats (n=348), dogs (n=320), pigs (n=27), equines (n=101), as well as a significant portion of the population of feral cats (n=247) of the Island by Indirect Fluorescent Antibody Test. Anti-T. gondii IgG antibodies were found in 71.26%, 54.74%, 48.75%, 51.85% and 22.7%, of the pet and feral cats, dogs, pigs and equines, respectively, demonstrating a high prevalence of T. gondii infection in the wild and domestic animals of the Island. The Kernel intensity estimator showed a correlation between areas with high prevalence of infection in cats and occurrence of infection in the other studied species. We suggest that the island's health authorities should develop initiatives to reduce the population of cats and alert the island's population about the risk of T. gondii infection.

    Full Text Available Em 1938, o médico português Fernando Bissaya Barreto promoveu a construção de um 'internato de leprosos' no centro de Portugal, afastado dos grandes centros populacionais, mas de fácil acesso a todo o país. Inaugurado em 1947, o Hospital-Colônia Rovisco Pais segue o modelo de um hospital-asilo-colônia, sendo simetricamente segmentado por pavilhões iguais em número e características para os dois sexos. Seguindo uma lógica disciplinar e não de exclusão, o plano urbanístico, o desenho dos edifícios e o próprio mobiliário e decoração são configurados, sob a influência direta de Bissaya Barreto, como instrumentos de intervenção sobre o corpo físico e moral dos doentes de Hansen, mas também, e em outra escala, de controle e modificação da sociedade portuguesa no seu conjunto.

    Full Text Available La finca de Santa Anita es un espacio emblemático que aparece constantemente en la narrativa de Fernando Vallejo; a través del recuerdo de la finca podemos observar una cosmovisión, una manera de ver el mundo ligada al territorio dentro de una escritura literaria que constituye una práctica social fuertemente contextualizada. En este sentido, la imaginación puede ser entendida como un acto comprometido con la realidad y por ello se apreciará el mérito de las variaciones ideológicas y políticas de las agencias humanas y sociales que la escritura literaria pone en movimiento. Por tanto, se analizará el texto como un documento en el que la relación con el poder se presenta como un testimonio de la existencia de unas más o menos abiertas relaciones de lucha y conflicto.

    Aleksandra Jablonska

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available En el artículo se analiza El viaje de Fernando Solanas como una película alegórica en que la metáfora del viaje, frecuentemente usada en los cines latinoamericanos, en esta ocasión parece apuntar hacia una reflexión sobre un continente marcado por el colonialismo y el neocolonialismo, sangrientas dictaduras y represión, corrupción generalizada y especulación desmedida. Se trata, en definitiva, de una reflexión sobre la historia que no es de progreso sino de la decadencia y de la fugacidad, una historia inconclusa. En este contexto, argumenta el filme, no hay condiciones para crear identidades fuertes que necesitan de un sentido de pertenencia, de una claridad acerca de su propio origen. Los latinoamericanos son personas que viajan hacia ningún lugar porque también vienen de ningún lugar: están perdidos de sí mismos.

    The portion of tectonic fault where rheological properties transtition from brittle to ductile hosts a variety of seismic signals suggesting a range of slip velocities. In subduction zones, the two dominantly observed seismic signals include very-low frequency earthquakes ( VLFEs), and low-frequency earthquakes (LFEs) or tectonic tremor. Tremor and LFE are also commonly observed in transform faults, however, VLFEs have been reported dominantly in subduction zone environments. Here we show some of the first known observations of VLFEs occurring on a plate boundary transform fault, the San Andreas Fault (SAF) between the Cholame-Parkfield segment in California. We detect VLFEs using both permanent and temporary stations in 2010-2011 within approximately 70 km of Cholame, California. We search continous waveforms filtered from 0.02-0.05 Hz, and remove time windows containing teleseismic events and local earthquakes, as identified in the global Centroid Moment Tensor (CMT) and the Northern California Seismic Network (NCSN) catalog. We estimate the VLFE locations by converting the signal into envelopes, and cross-correlating them for phase-picking, similar to procedures used for locating tectonic tremor. We first perform epicentral location using a grid search method and estimate a hypocenter location using Hypoinverse and a shear-wave velocity model when the epicenter is located close to the SAF trace. We account for the velocity contrast across the fault using separate 1D velocity models for stations on each side. Estimated hypocentral VLFE depths are similar to tremor catalog depths ( 15-30 km). Only a few VLFEs produced robust hypocentral locations, presumably due to the difficulty in picking accurate phase arrivals with such a low-frequency signal. However, for events for which no location could be obtained, the moveout of phase arrivals across the stations were similar in character, suggesting that other observed VLFEs occurred in close proximity.

    The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued official heat alerts to the public and decision making partners for many years by developing a single criterion or regional criteria from heat indices which combine temperature and humidity. The criteria have typically relied on fixed thresholds and did not consider impact from a particular heat episode, nor did it factor seasonality, population acclimatization, or impacts on the most vulnerable subgroups. In 2013, the NWS San Diego office began modifying their criteria to account for local climatology with much less dependence on humidity or the heat index. These local changes were based on initial findings from the California Department of Public Health, EpiCenter California Injury Data Online system (EPIC), which document heat health impacts. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) in collaboration with the California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and the NWS completed a study of hospital visits during heat waves in California showing significant health impacts occurred in the past when no regional heat warning was issued. Therefore, the results supported the need for an exploratory project to implement significant modification of the traditional local criteria. To understand the impacts of heat on community health, medical outcome data were provided by the County of San Diego Emergency Medical Services Branch (EMS), which is provided by the County's Public Health Officer to monitor heat-related illness and injury daily during specific heat episodes. The data were combined with SIO research to inform the modification of local NWS heat criteria and establish trigger points to pilot new procedures for the issuance of heat alerts. Finally, procedures were customized for each of the county health departments in the NWS area of responsibility across extreme southwest California counties in collaboration with their Office of Emergency Services (OES).

    2010年8月14日强降雨过程导致汶川震区映秀镇红椿沟泥石流暴发,泥石流堰塞堆积体堵断岷江主河道,导致河水改道冲入映秀新镇,引发洪水泛滥;造成映秀镇13人死亡、59人失踪,受灾群众8 000余人被迫避险转移.由于这场泥石流灾害发生在汶川地震震中区,是地震与降雨共同作用下的结果,研究其形成与成灾过程对于进一步认识强震区泥石流发育特征具有重要的意义.根据现场调查和航空图像解译,分析了红椿沟泥石流流域特征,特别是地震条件下的泥石流物源特征,在此基础上讨论了泥石流起动过程和堆积过程.红椿沟泥石流典型实例表明了汶川震区泥石流已进入一个新的活跃期.因此,应该开展对汶川地震区的泥石流风险评估和监测、早期预警等研究,采取有效的工程措施控制泥石流的发生和危害.%A rainstorm triggered debris flow hazard occurred in Hongchun valley, Yingxiu town, epicenter of the Wenchuan earthquake on August 14, 2010. This event transported huge material sediment to the watercourse of the Minjiang River and produced a natural dam, resulting in flash flood in the new Yingxiu town. The flood claimed 13 lives, with a further 59 listed as missing. About 8 000 local residents were rapidly evacuated from their homes. The debris flow resulted from the coaction of the rainfall and earthquake. Therefore, it is significant for better understanding of development characters of debris flows to conduct the research on the initiation and movement process in high seismic intensity area. This paper studies characteristics of the initiation conditions and depositional fans of the debris flow based on field reconnaissance and interpretations of aerial photographs, focusing on loose sediment supply in source areas of debris flows. On the basis of the above analysis, the initiation and deposition process of debris flows are discussed. The catastrophic event indicates

A huge landslide was ever triggered by the earthquake. During the passed three flood seasons, at least five typical debris flows occurred at Wenjia gully. In particular,a severest debris flow occurred on Aug. 13, 2010. It had a volume up to 3.1 ×107m3. Five residents lost their lives unfortunately and hundreds of new-built houses were buried during the catastrophic event. However, it was fortunate that almost all the residents evacuated successfully before the debris flow occurred. In this paper, on the basis of tracking investigation,the mechanism and characteristics of the Wenjia-gullydebris flows were discussed and some suggestions were put forward. The acknowledges obtained after investigation and analysis are as follows: (1)The debris flows were caused by both Wenchuan earthquake and strong rainfall. As the debris flow formation

    Mesoamerican peoples had a long history of cacao use--spanning more than 34 centuries--as confirmed by previous identification of cacao residues on archaeological pottery from Paso de la Amada on the Pacific Coast and the Olmec site of El Manatí on the Gulf Coast. Until now, comparable evidence from San Lorenzo, the premier Olmec capital, was lacking. The present study of theobromine residues confirms the continuous presence and use of cacao products at San Lorenzo between 1800 and 1000 BCE, and documents assorted vessels forms used in its preparation and consumption. One elite context reveals cacao use as part of a mortuary ritual for sacrificial victims, an event that occurred during the height of San Lorenzo's power.

    higher resolution 1000 pixel-wide image The red and green colors of the salt ponds in South San Francisco Bay are brilliant visual markers for astronauts. The STS-111 crew photographed the bay south of the San Mateo bridge in June, 2002. This photograph is timely because a large number of the salt ponds (more than 16,500 acres) that are owned by Cargill, Inc. will be sold in September for wetlands restoration-a restoration project second in size only to the Florida Everglades project. Rough boundaries of the areas to be restored are outlined on the image. Over the past century, more than 80% of San Francisco Bay's wetlands have been filled and developed or diked off for salt mining. San Francisco Bay has supported salt mining since 1854. Cargill has operated most of the bay's commercial salt ponds since 1978, and had already sold thousands of acres to the State of California and the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge. This new transaction will increase San Francisco Bay's existing tidal wetlands by 50%. The new wetlands, to be managed by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, will join the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge, and provide valuable habitat for birds, fish and other wildlife. The wetlands will contribute to better water quality and flood control in the bay, and open up more coastline for public enjoyment.

  3. A Case for Historic Joint Rupture of the San Andreas and San Jacinto Faults

    The ~M7.5 southern California earthquake of 8 December 1812 ruptured the San Andreas Fault from Cajon Pass to at least as far north as Pallet Creek (Biasi et al., 2002). The 1812 rupture has also been identified in trenches at Burro Flats to the south (Yule and Howland, 2001). However, the lack of a record of 1812 at Plunge Creek, between Cajon Pass and Burro Flats (McGill et al., 2002), complicates the interpretation of this event as a straightforward San Andreas rupture. Paleoseismic records of a large early 19th century rupture on the northern San Jacinto Fault (Onderdonk et al., 2013; Kendrick and Fumal, 2005) allow for alternate interpretations of the 1812 earthquake. I use dynamic rupture modeling on the San Andreas-San Jacinto junction to determine which rupture behaviors produce slip patterns consistent with observations of the 1812 event. My models implement realistic fault geometry, a realistic velocity structure, and stress orientations based on seismicity literature. Under these simple assumptions, joint rupture of the two faults is the most common behavior. My modeling rules out a San Andreas-only rupture that is consistent with the data from the 1812 earthquake, and also shows that single fault events are unable to match the average slip per event for either fault. The choice of nucleation point affects the details of rupture directivity and slip distribution, but not the first order result that multi-fault rupture is the preferred behavior. While it cannot be definitively said that joint San Andreas-San Jacinto rupture occurred in 1812, these results are consistent with paleoseismic and historic data. This has implications for the possibility of future multi-fault rupture within the San Andreas system, as well as for interpretation of other paleoseismic events in regions of complex fault interactions.

    Aedes aegypti has played a major role in the dramatic expansion of dengue worldwide. The failure of control programs in reducing the rhythm of global dengue expansion through vector control suggests the need for studies to support more appropriated control strategies. We report here the results of a longitudinal study on Ae. aegypti population dynamics through continuous egg sampling aiming to characterize the infestation of urban areas of a Brazilian oceanic island, Fernando de Noronha. The spatial and temporal distribution of the dengue vector population in urban areas of the island was described using a monitoring system (SMCP-Aedes) based on a 103-trap network for Aedes egg sampling, using GIS and spatial statistics analysis tools. Mean egg densities were estimated over a 29-month period starting in 2011 and producing monthly maps of mosquito abundance. The system detected continuous Ae. aegypti oviposition in most traps. The high global positive ovitrap index (POI=83.7% of 2815 events) indicated the frequent presence of blood-fed-egg laying females at every sampling station. Egg density (eggs/ovitrap/month) reached peak values of 297.3 (0 - 2020) in May and 295 (0 - 2140) in August 2012. The presence of a stable Ae. aegypti population established throughout the inhabited areas of the island was demonstrated. A strong association between egg abundance and rainfall with a 2-month lag was observed, which combined with a first-order autocorrelation observed in the series of egg counts can provide an important forecasting tool. This first description of the characteristics of the island infestation by the dengue vector provides baseline information to analyze relationships between the spatial distribution of the vector and dengue cases, and to the development of integrated vector control strategies.

O estudo da distribuição e história natural dos gobióides e blenióides de Fernando de Noronha foi desenvolvido através de observações de campo. Além da descrição dos hábitats preferenciais foram abordados aspectos sociais tais como, habitat preferencial, interações intra- e interespecíficas, comportamento domiciliar e territorial, e comportamento reprodutivo. A maioria das espécies em foco apresenta distribuição principalmente litorânea, são gregárias, com áreas domiciliares relativamente pequenas em torno de 2 x 2 m², pouco agressivas, tendo sido ocasionalmente registradas curtas perseguições intra- e interespecíficas. A baixa agressividade registrada, em comparação com outros peixes é provavelmente associada à adaptação à ocupação de pequenas áreas, como é o caso das poças de marés, pois um grande número de interações agressivas representaria um gasto de energia desnecessário. No geral, as espécies possuem coloração críptica, associada à evitação de predadores.

    Full Text Available O presente estudo teve como objetivo analisar as percepções dos profissionais de saúde do Hospital Municipal Fernando Magalhães (HMFM sobre a atuação diante das situações de aborto legal. Para tal, buscou-se caracterizar os profissionais entrevistados, compreender o processo de qualificação para o atendimento às mulheres em situação de aborto e identificar as percepções dos profissionais sobre a atuação diante do aborto legal. Quanto à metodologia, adotou-se a abordagem quantitativa e qualitativa. Os instrumentos utilizados foram a análise de documentação institucional e as entrevistas do tipo semiestruturada, baseadas em roteiro com consentimento livre e esclarecido. Os resultados desta pesquisa apontaram para: o uso inadequado do direito a objeção de consciência por parte dos profissionais de saúde; a existência de diferentes dificuldades dos profissionais na construção de uma postura capaz de garantir o acesso ao aborto previsto em lei; e a interferência dos princípios éticos e dos valores religiosos como um elemento importante na postura profissional que desestimula a prática do aborto legal. Recomendam-se medidas voltadas para a formação continuada dos profissionais e monitoramento das ações preconizadas pelas normas técnicas.The scope of this study was to analyze perceptions of health professionals at Fernando Magalhães Public Hospital regarding situations involving the practice of legal abortion.

    The San Cristobal Galapagos wind power project was described. With its unique endemic flora and fauna, the Galapagos Islands were declared a world heritage site and marine reserve. The San Cristobal wind project was initiated in 1999 to reduce the environmental impacts of energy use on the island, and has been operational since 2007. Three 800 kW wind turbines have been installed in order to reduce 52 per cent of the island's diesel generation. The project's high penetration wind-diesel hybrid system included 300 kW diesel generators, a 13.2 kV utility distribution system, and six 300 kW wind turbines. The project is located outside of Galapagos Petrel flight paths and nesting areas. Turbines from a factory in Spain were used. The wind turbine foundation was constructed from concrete sand and stone mined on the island. Photographs of the installation process were included. tabs., figs.

    2005-12-01

    April of 2006 will mark the 100-year anniversary of the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake. This earthquake was important not only because of its human tragedy (thousands of dead or homeless people), but also because of its scientific significance. The 8.3 magnitude earthquake ruptured 430 km of the northern San Andreas fault (SAF) and lasted nearly one minute. Investigations after the earthquake led to discoveries that were the beginning of modern earthquake theories and measuring instruments. This was also one of the first large-scale natural disasters to be photographed. Our research group, which is part of the National Science Foundation funded SF-ROCKS program, acquired photographs that were taken shortly after the earthquake in downtown San Francisco and along the SAF in San Mateo County. The SAF photos are part of a Geographical Information System (GIS) database being published on a U.S. Geological Survey web site. The goal of our project was to improve estimates of photograph locations and to compare the landscape features that were visible after the earthquake with the landscape that we see today. We used the GIS database to find initial photo locations, and we then used a high-precision Global Positioning System (GPS) to measure the geographic coordinates of the locations once we matched our view to what we saw in a photo. Where possible, we used a digital camera to retake photos from the same position, to show the difference in the landscape 100 years later. The 1906 photos show fault zone features such as ground rupture, sag ponds, shutter ridges, and offset fences. Changes to the landscape since 1906 have included erosion and grading of the land, building of houses and other structures, and more tree cover compared to previous grassland vegetation. Our project is part of 1906 Earthquake Centennial activities; it is contributing to the photo archive that helps scientists and engineers who study earthquakes and their effects. It will also help the

  11. Examination of spotted sand bass (Paralabrax maculatofasciatus) pollutant bioaccumulation in San Diego Bay, San Diego, California.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Loflen, Chad L

    2013-01-01

    The spotted sand bass (Paralabrax maculatofasciatus) is an important recreational sport and subsistence food fish within San Diego Bay, a large industrialized harbor in San Diego, California. Despite this importance, few studies examining the species life history relative to pollutant tissue concentrations and the consumptive fishery exist. This study utilized data from three independent spotted sand bass studies from 1989 to 2002 to investigate PCB, DDT, and mercury tissue concentrations relative to spotted sand bass age and growth in San Diego Bay, with subsequent comparisons to published pollutant advisory levels and fishery regulations for recreational and subsistence consumption of the species. Subsequent analysis focused on examining temporal and spatial differences for different regions of San Diego Bay. Study results for growth confirmed previous work, finding the species to exhibit highly asymptotic growth, making tissue pollutant concentrations at initial take size difficult if not impossible to predict. This was corroborated by independent tissue concentration results for mercury, which found no relationship between fish size and pollutant bioaccumulation observed. However, a positive though highly variable relationship was observed between fish size and PCB tissue concentration. Despite these findings, a significant proportion of fish exhibited pollutant levels above recommended state recreational angler consumption advisory levels for PCBs and mercury, especially for fish above the minimum take size, making the necessity of at-size predictions less critical. Lastly, no difference in tissue concentration was found temporally or spatially within San Diego Bay.

    The chief points brought out in this paper may be briefly summarized as follows: (1) The existence of natural Bi2O3 has not been established. (2) Natural bismite or bismuth ocher, when pure, is more probably a bismuth hydroxide. (3) The bismuth ochers from San Diego County, California, are either a bismuth hydroxide or bismuth vanadate, pucherite, or mixtures of these two. (4) Pucherite has been found noncrystallin and determined for the first time in the United States.

    Salt management has been a challenge to westside farmerssince the rapid expansion of irrigated agriculture in the 1900 s. Thesoils in this area are naturally salt-affected having formed from marinesedimentary rocks rich in sea salts rendering the shallow groundwater,and drainage return flows discharging into the lower reaches of the SanJoaquin River, saline. Salinity problems are affected by the importedwater supply from Delta where the Sacramento and San Joaquin Riverscombine. Water quality objectives on salinity and boron have been inplace for decades to protect beneficial uses of the river. However it wasthe selenium-induced avian toxicity that occurred in the evaporationponds of Kesterson Reservoir (the terminal reservoir of a planned but notcompleted San Joaquin Basin Master Drain) that changed public attitudesabout agricultural drainage and initiated a steady stream ofenvironmental legislation directed at reducing non-point source pollutionof the River. Annual and monthly selenium load restrictions and salinityand boron Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are the most recent of thesepolicy initiatives. Failure by both State and Federal water agencies toconstruct a Master Drain facility serving mostly west-side irrigatedagriculture has constrained these agencies to consider only In-Valleysolutions to ongoing drainage problems. For the Westlands subarea, whichhas no surface irrigation drainage outlet to the San Joaquin River,innovative drainage reuse systems such as the Integrated Farm DrainageManagement (IFDM) offer short- to medium-term solutions while morepermanent remedies to salt disposal are being investigated. Real-timesalinity management, which requires improved coordination of east-sidereservoir releases and west-side drainage, offers some relief toGrasslands Basin farmers and wetland managers - allowing greater salinityloading to the River than under a strict TMDL. However, currentregulation drives a policy that results in a moratorium on all

    The Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) provides observations of tides, tidal currents, and meteorological conditions in real-time. The San Francisco Bay PORTS (SFPORTS) is a decision support system to facilitate safe and efficient maritime commerce. In addition to real-time observations, SFPORTS includes a nowcast numerical model forming a San Francisco Bay marine nowcast system. SFPORTS data and nowcast numerical model results are made available to users through the World Wide Web (WWW). A brief overview of SFPORTS is presented, from the data flow originated at instrument sensors to final results delivered to end users on the WWW. A user-friendly interface for SFPORTS has been designed and implemented. Appropriate field data analysis, nowcast procedures, design and generation of graphics for WWW display of field data and nowcast results are presented and discussed. Furthermore, SFPORTS is designed to support hazardous materials spill prevention and response, and to serve as resources to scientists studying the health of San Francisco Bay ecosystem. The success (or failure) of the SFPORTS to serve the intended user community is determined by the effectiveness of the user interface.

    Introduction The population of the San Luis Valley region is growing rapidly. The shallow unconfined and the deeper confined Santa Fe Group aquifer in the San Luis Basin is the main sources of municipal water for the region. Water shortfalls could have serious consequences. Future growth and land management in the region depend on accurate assessment and protection of the region's ground-water resources. An important issue in managing the ground-water resources is a better understanding of the hydrogeology of the Santa Fe Group and the nature of the sedimentary deposits that fill the Rio Grande rift, which contain the principal ground-water aquifers. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is conducting a series of multidisciplinary studies of the San Luis Basin located in southern Colorado. Detailed geologic mapping, high-resolution airborne magnetic surveys, gravity surveys, an electromagnetic survey, called magnetotellurics (MT), and hydrologic and lithologic data are being used to better understand the aquifer systems. The primary goal of the MT survey is to map changes in electrical resistivity with depth that are related to differences in rock type. These various rock types help control the properties of aquifers in the region. This report does not include any interpretation of the data. Its purpose is to release the MT data acquired at the 22 stations shown in figure 1.

    The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued official heat alerts in the form of either a heat advisory or excessive heat warning product to the public and core partners for many years. This information has traditionally been developed through the use of triggers for heat indices which combine humidity and temperature. The criteria typically used numeric thresholds and did not consider impact from a particular heat episode, nor did it factor seasonality or population acclimation. In 2013, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego in collaboration with the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, of the California Environmental Protection Agency and the NWS completed a study of heat health impact in California, while the NWS San Diego office began modifying their criteria towards departure from climatological normal with much less dependence on humidity or heat index. The NWS changes were based on initial findings from the California Department of Public Health, EpiCenter California Injury Data Online system which documents heat health impacts. Results from the UCSD study were finalized and published in 2014; they supported the need for significant modification of the traditional criteria. In order to better understand the impacts of heat on community health, medical outcome data were provided by the County of San Diego Emergency Medical Services Branch, which is charged by the County's Public Health Officer to monitor heat-related illness and injury daily from June through September. The data were combined with UCSD research to inform the modification of local NWS heat criteria and establish trigger points to pilot new procedures for the issuance of heat alerts. Finally, practices and procedures were customized for each of the county health departments in the NWS area of responsibility across extreme southwest California counties in collaboration with their Office of Emergency Services.

  1. A Study of the San Andreas Slip Rate on the San Francisco Peninsula, California

    The most recent large earthquake on the San Andreas Fault (SAF) along the San Francisco Peninsula was the great San Francisco earthquake of April 18, 1906, when a Mw= 7.8 event ruptured 435-470 km of the northern SAF. The slip rate for this segment of the SAF is incompletely known but is important for clarifying seismic hazard in this highly urbanized region. A previous study south of our site has found an average slip rate of 17±4 mm/yr for the late Holocene on the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the SAF. North of the Golden Gate, the SAF joins the San Gregorio Fault with an estimated slip rate of 6 mm/yr. A trench study north of where the two faults join has produced an average late Holocene slip rate of 24±3 mm/yr. To refine slip-rate estimates for the peninsula segment of the SAF, we excavated a trench across the fault where we located an abandoned channel between the San Andreas and Lower Crystal Springs reservoirs. This abandoned channel marks the time when a new channel cut across the SAF; the new channel has since been offset in a right-lateral sense about 20 m. The measured amount of offset and the age of the youngest fluvial sediments in the abandoned channel will yield a slip rate for the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the SAF. We excavated a trench across the abandoned channel and logged the exposed sediments. Our investigation revealed channel-fill alluvium incised and filled by probable debris flow sediments, and a wide fault zone in bedrock, west of the channel deposits. The most prominent fault is probably the strand that moved in 1906. We completed a total-station survey to more precisely measure the offset stream, and to confirm that the fault exposed in the trench aligns with a fence that is known to have been offset 2.8m during the 1906 earthquake. We interpret the debris flow sediments to represent the last phase of deposition prior to abandonment of the old channel. We collected samples for radiocarbon dating, optically stimulated

    Ultra-low frequency (ULF: 0.01-10 Hz) magnetic field anomalies prior to M≥6.0 earthquakes have been reported in various regions of the world. Here, we test whether smaller magnitude earthquakes have associated ULF anomalies by using continuous measurements made ˜9 km above and ˜2 km NE of the epicenter of the Mw 5.1 8/12/98 San Juan Bautista, CA earthquake. Half-hour spectral averages of the magnetic field data in nine different ULF frequency bands show no long-term (days to weeks) magnetic field anomaly prior to the earthquake. In addition, magnetic and electric field polarization shows no anomalous behavior clearly associated with seismic activity. An ˜0.02 nT increase in activity for 2 h prior to the earthquake is close to the background noise levels precluding identification of a precursor. We present scaling calculations to show if precursory ULF anomalies are related to the size of the earthquake. The observed ˜0.02 nT increase is the approximately expected magnetic anomaly prior to the San Juan Bautista (SBJ) earthquake, based on the anomaly observed prior to the 1989 Loma Prieta (LP) earthquake. Our reexamination of previously proposed dilatant-conductive and piezomagnetic mechanisms for ULF precursors shows that these effects are consistent with the observations prior to the SJB earthquake based on the observations (i.e., lack of a strong precursor). In contrast, previously proposed electrokinetic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) mechanisms do not appear to be appropriate for this particular earthquake. This analysis further supports the hypothesis that precursory ULF signals are related to the size of the earthquake.

    El Hospital de San Juan de Dios de Santafé de Bogotá se fundó en el año de 1723, hace 275 años, pero no es el más antiguo de los que se establecieron en el territorio de la Nueva Granada. Ese honor le corresponde al Hospital de Santiago, que fue fundado el 28 de diciembre de 1513 en la ciudad de Santa María la Antigua del Darien, por el conquistador Pedrarias Dávila, en cumplimiento de una Cédula Real dirigida a la Casa de Contratación de Sevilla en agosto del mismo año, mediante la cual el Rey don Fernando el Católico ordena “que se haga en el pueblo de la provincia de Santa María la Antigua del Darien que es la tierra firme, un hospital donde se acojan e curen los enfermos e abriguen los pobres e convendra proveer el dicho Hospital de algunas camas e otras cosas…. Yo os mando, agrega el Rey, que compréis cincuenta camas de ropa en las que haya en cada una de ellas el aparejo que suelen tener las camas de esta ciudad de Sevilla”.

    El pequeño poblado de Santa María la Antigua del Darien había sido fundado por Vasco Núñez de Balboa en 1509, en tierras del cacique Cenaco, y adquirió la categoria de ciudad por Cédula Real del 10 de julio de 1515. El Hospital de Santiago contó como personal médico con Rodrigo de Barreda, quien gozaba de buena reputación médica y científica, con el bachiller Diego de Angulo, y con el maestre Alonso de Santiago, quien había atendido al conquistador Alonso de Ojeda en 1510 de un flechazo que le atravezó el muslo. Pensando que la herida pudiera estar envenenada, Ojeda ordenó a Santiago que calentase al rojo blanco dos planchas de hierro para que se las colocase en la herida.

    Como el maestre se mostrara temeroso de hacerlo temiendo que podría causarle la muerte, Ojeda le dijo que si se negaba lo haría ahorcar, ante lo cual el cirujano procedió a aplicarle el tratamiento, “con ciertas tenazas, dice el padre Las Casas, de modo que no sólo le abrasó el muslo y la

    We installed a dense array of 41 digital seismographs in San Jose, California, to evaluate in detail the effects of a deep sedimentary basin and shallow sedimentary deposits on earthquake ground motions. This urban array is located near the eastern edge of the Santa Clara Valley and spans the Evergreen sedimentary basin identified by gravity data. Average station spacing is 1 km, with three stations initially spaced 110 m apart. Despite the high-noise urban environment, the stations of the array successfully triggered on and recorded small local earthquakes (M 2.5-2.8 at 10-25 km distance) and larger regional events such as the M 5.0 Bolinas earthquake (90 km distance), M 4.6-5.6 earthquakes near Mammoth Lakes (270 km distance), M 4.9-5.6 events in western Nevada (420 km distance) and the M 7.1 Hector Mine earthquake (590 km distance). Maps of spectral ratios across the array show that the highest amplitudes in all frequency bands studied (0.125-8 Hz) are generally observed at stations farther from the eastern edge of the Santa Clara Valley. Larger spectral amplitudes are often observed above the western edge of the Evergreen Basin. Snapshots of the recorded wavefield crossing the array for regional events to the east reveal that large, low-frequency (0.125-0.5 Hz) arrivals after the S-wave travel from south to north across the array. A moving-window, cross-correlation analysis finds that these later arrivals are surface waves traveling from the south. The timing and propagation direction of these arrivals indicates that they were likely produced by scattering of incident S waves at the border of the Santa Clara Valley to the south of the array. It is remarkable that the largest low-frequency phases at many of the valley sites for regional events to the east are basin surface waves coming from a direction about 70 degrees different from that of the epicenters. Basin surface waves emanating from the eastern edge of the valley are also identified by the cross

    Geophysical data and surface geology define intertonguing thrust wedges that form the upper crust in the San Gorgonio Pass region. This picture serves as the basis for inferring past fault movements within the San Andreas system, which are fundamental to understanding the tectonic evolution of the San Gorgonio Pass region. Interpretation of gravity data indicates that sedimentary rocks have been thrust at least 5 km in the central part of San Gorgonio Pass beneath basement rocks of the southeast San Bernardino Mountains. Subtle, long-wavelength magnetic anomalies indicate that a magnetic body extends in the subsurface north of San Gorgonio Pass and south under Peninsular Ranges basement, and has a southern edge that is roughly parallel to, but 5-6 km south of, the surface trace of the Banning fault. This deep magnetic body is composed either of upper-plate rocks of San Gabriel Mountains basement or rocks of San Bernardino Mountains basement or both. We suggest that transpression across the San Gorgonio Pass region drove a wedge of Peninsular Ranges basement and its overlying sedimentary cover northward into the San Bernardino Mountains during the Neogene, offsetting the Banning fault at shallow depth. Average rates of convergence implied by this offset are broadly consistent with estimates of convergence from other geologic and geodetic data. Seismicity suggests a deeper detachment surface beneath the deep magnetic body. This interpretation suggests that the fault mapped at the surface evolved not only in map but also in cross-sectional view. Given the multilayered nature of deformation, it is unlikely that the San Andreas fault will rupture cleanly through the complex structures in San Gorgonio Pass. ?? 2005 Geological Society of America.

    This case series reports the changes in the respiratory health of eight asthmatic subjects and the relationship with air quality associated with the October 2007 firestorm in San Diego County of California. Participants were eight subjects with asthma enrolled in Asthma Clinical Research Network (ACRN) (NIH# U10-HL074218) studies at the University of California San Diego (UCSD), School of Medicine, who had study data collected immediately prior, during and 1 month after the 5-day firestorm in San Diego County. Air quality deteriorated to an extreme average of 71.5 mg/m(3) small particulate matter less than 2.5 μm (PM(2.5)) during the firestorm. Respiratory health data included morning and evening peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR), morning and evening Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV(1)), rescue medication usage, and sputum eosinophils. Morning and evening PEFR and FEV(1) rates remained stable. The two subjects tested during the fires had elevated eosinophil counts and rescue medication usage was increased in five of the eight subjects. Pulmonary function test values were stable during the wildfires for all eight subjects but there was a statistically significant increase in rescue medication usage during the wildfires that correlated with PM(2.5) values. The two subjects tested during the fires showed increases in sputum eosinophil counts consistent with increased airways inflammation. These findings suggest that poor air quality associated with wildfires resulted in an increase in airways inflammation in these asthmatic subjects, but pulmonary function tests remained stable, possibly due to increased rescue medication usage. This is especially pertinent as there is an increase in incidence of wildfires this decade.

  5. [Health levels in San Andres Cholula].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Alvarez Martinez, A; Corro Fernandez, G; Balmaceda, M

    1991-12-01

    In matters of health and curing, the community of San Andres Cholula in Puebla, Mexico, demonstrates a syncretism similar to religious syncretism. Perspectives on illness and health consistent with the traditional medical practices of curanderos coexist with modern medical practices. Curanderos and physicians often treat the same patients. A curandero's powers are viewed as a special gift transmitted by God or the saints during a dream. The curandero effects a cure not only through knowledge of the medicinal plants, rites, and ceremonies, but by understanding the context of the patient. The Western medical concept of disease emphasizes a biological model and technological control, to the detriment of mental, behavioral, and social factors and determinants. The traditional medical concept stresses the relationship of the individual to the social and ecological environment. Improvements in life expectancy in the developing countries in recent years have been attributed to improved levels of living or to importation of vaccination programs, antibiotics, and similar technologies from the developed countries. The vital register of San Andres Cholula records many deaths whose cause cannot be easily interpreted according to the World Health Organization International Classification of Diseases. It is clear, however, that the root cause of many deaths is malnutrition. The proportion of deaths caused by infectious diseases has declined in Mexico since 1940, but Puebla is still included among the states with the highest incidence. There are great regional and rural-urban mortality differentials in Mexico. In the past 50 years, the infant mortality rate has declined from 250 to 40/1000 live births in San Andres Cholula, more as a result of vaccination campaigns than of improved levels of living. 89% of children have been vaccinated, but the population still lives in about the same state of material comfort as it has for generations except that most households have televisions

  8. Early Maya writing at San Bartolo, Guatemala.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Saturno, William A; Stuart, David; Beltrán, Boris

    2006-03-03

    The ruins of San Bartolo, Guatemala, contain a sample of Maya hieroglyphic writing dating to the Late Preclassic period (400 B.C. to 200 A.D.). The writing appears on preserved painted walls and plaster fragments buried within the pyramidal structure known as "Las Pinturas," which was constructed in discrete phases over several centuries. Samples of carbonized wood that are closely associated with the writing have calibrated radiocarbon dates of 200 to 300 B.C. This early Maya writing implies that a developed Maya writing system was in use centuries earlier than previously thought, approximating a time when we see the earliest scripts elsewhere in Mesoamerica.

Il lui faut donc patienter, s’adapter dans la contrainte au "rhythm" défini par l’administration, tantôt lent, tantôt rapide. Et trouver aussi son propre rythme en posant des actes. Il lui faut faire avec le blues, qui survient souvent par la prise de conscience du décalage entre l’espoir d’une vie meilleure qui avait déclenché le ...

Esta experiencia desarrollada en el marco del Proyecto Ambiental Escolar PRAE, se basa en la reutilización de residuos sólidos para la construcción de prototipos ecológicos de manera tal que se generen acciones que fortalezcan la cultura ambiental a partir de la participación de los estudiantes en los procesos de mejora de su entorno.  La elaboración de prototipos en la escuela es un tema poco abordado desde esta óptica y por eso las docentes pretenden extender la invitación a participar activamente en procesos similares al interior de las instituciones educativas.
