    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

  4. Preliminary Geologic Map of the San Fernando 7.5' Quadrangle, Southern California: A Digital Database

    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.

    Land, Michael; Kulongoski, Justin T.; Belitz, Kenneth

    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.

  8. Rehabilitation and certification of the PGPB Cactus-San Fernando gas pipeline system

    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.

    The limiting factors in agricultural production, defined as those properties and characteristics of the geographical environment that influence the development of crops, can be diverse and are grouped with the physical environment of soil. They are the result of soil characteristics and soil degradation processes by anthropogenic influence. Due to the above, the objective of this study was to identify and surveying the limitative factors to agricultural production, as well as to define its ability land use capacity in San Fernando district, Tamaulipas.

    Full Text Available This article shows the results of the archaeological research carried out in the castle of San Romualdo, the most emblematic building of the city of San Fernando and a defensive fortress tied to the control access of Cádiz. The standing building recording has enabled to know the building evolution from its origins until the present. Studies have hitherto confirmed the chronological conclusions already proposed in 2003. That is, the current castle is a medieval Christian building erected in the second half of the 13th century thanks to Mudejar workers and materials reused from a previous building.Presentamos en este artículo los resultados de nuestra investigación arqueológica en el castillo de San Romualdo, el edificio más emblemático de la ciudad de San Fernando y fortaleza defensiva ligada al control del acceso a Cádiz. El análisis estratigráfico de alzados ha permitido conocer la evolución constructiva del edificio, desde sus orígenes hasta la actualidad. Hasta ahora los estudios confirman las conclusiones en cuanto a su datación presentadas en el año 2003, es decir, el castillo, tal y como hoy lo conocemos, es una construcción medieval cristiana, realizada durante la segunda mitad del siglo XIII, con mano de obra mudéjar y con materiales reutilizados de una edificación anterior.

    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 El perfil socioeconómico de Chiapas es primordialmente rural, debiendo reconocerse la diversidad de sus actividades agropecuarias y forestales para generar condiciones específicas de desarrollo. Considerando lo anterior, se realizó esta investigación entre mayo de 1998 y diciembre de 1999, como un estudio de caso sobre los aspectos agropecuarios y forestales más relevantes en el ejido Villa Allende, que expresa problemas ejidales característicos de la región. El ejido cuenta con 3.300 hectáreas, 554 ejidatarios y se ubica en el municipio de San Fernando en la Región Central de Chiapas. Se estudiaron las circunstancias de los ejidatarios, conocimiento local y procesos de trabajo agrícola desde una perspectiva de planeación. A partir de ello se generó el plan de desarrollo, el cual es el primero expuesto en el municipio de San Fernando que se dirige al sector ejidal. Su propósito es plasmar una propuesta general en materia agropecuaria y forestal que pueda ser base para la concertación y que permita vislumbrar opciones dirigidas a mejorar la calidad de vida de los habitantes del ejido Villa Allende. Se postulan las siguientes políticas de desarrollo: 1. Fortalecimiento de la producción y la autosuficiencia alimentaria. 2. Impulso al crecimiento económico. 3. Dotación de infraestructura básica. 4. Reordenamiento agropecuario y forestal con criterios sociales, ecológicos y económicos. 5. Promoción de la salud. Con base en las políticas, se enuncian objetivos programas y subprogramas o proyectos.Chiapas' State has an economical profile essentially rural so, it must be recognized the diversity of its agriculture, livestock and forestry to generate specific conditions of development.

  6. La serie sobre San Fernando de Antonio García Reinoso en la Catedral de Córdoba

    Palencia Cerezo, José María

    2009-03-01

    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.

    Full Text Available El pensamiento ilustrado motivó el nacimiento de la conciencia tutelar, en cuya evolución intervinieron de manera activa las Academias, órganos centralizadores de la protección patrimonial. A raíz de la definitiva desamortización del clero regular, la Real Academia de San Fernando desarrolló un papel fundamental en la formulación de su ordenamiento jurídico. Entre las primeras medidas adoptadas destaca el nombramiento de académicos como comisionados que inventariasen, clasificasen y recolectasen los objetos procedentes de las comunidades suprimidas para la formación de los museos públicos. Este estudio aborda tanto la labor llevada a cabo como los resultados obtenidos por Valentín Carderera como comisionado en Castilla la Vieja y el Reino de León.The Enlightenment caused the birth of guardianship awareness. Academies, as centralized institutions for the protection of heritage, were actively involved in its evolution. On the basis of the definitive disentailment of regular clergy property, the Royal Academy of San Fernando played a key role in the development of its legal framework. Concerning the first steps taken, stands out the appointment of academics as commissioners to inventory, classify and collect the objects from the removed communities to be part of the public museums. This study addresses both the work carried out and the results obtained by the commissioner Valentin Carderera in Old Castile and The Kingdom of Leon.

    Full Text Available Buscamos investigar las razones históricas en relación a los acontecimientos y a los conceptos que llevaron a Fernando de Azevedo, en su obra A cultura brasileira, a posicionarse en defensa de las reformas educacionales implementadas por el Estado Nuevo, en grande medida en contraposición a formulaciones defendidas en la primera mitad de los años de 1930, especialmente en el Manifiesto dos Pioneros. En un segundo momento, quisimos entender el porqué de la paradoja entre esos dos momentos. El método, inicialmente, fue desarrollar un ejercicio de hermenéutica sobre la composición del autor en aquella obra, queriendo comprender lo que lo lleva a un entusiasmo con aquellas reformas que, hoy a nuestros ojos, nos parece despropositado. Para establecer un confronto entre los puntos de vista del propio autor, trabajamos sobre tres aspectos: el papel de la Unión en los sistemas de enseñanza; la cuestión de la nacionalización de la educación; y la visión de la enseñanza profesional.

  14. Methylmercury production and export from a restored tidal marsh: Crissy Field, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, San Francisco, CA

    Windham-Myers, L.; Ward, K.; Marvin-Dipasquale, M. C.; Agee, J.; Kieu, L.; Kakouros, E.

    2009-12-01

    Well-mixed surface water in the restored salt marsh at Crissy Field, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, was found to have high aqueous methylmercury (MeHg) concentrations (>1 ng MeHg / L), despite its sandy substrate and low sediment total mercury (THg) concentrations. We sought to determine a) the extent to which the marsh was a source or a sink of MeHg to San Francisco Bay, b) where and when MeHg is produced within the marsh, and c) the extent to which MeHg concentrations in sediment and water varied with extended multi-week flooding events, impoundments caused by periodic sediment accumulation in the narrow inlet. Because Crissy Marsh is small in size, has a single inlet slough channel, and has a tidally-dominated water budget, we had a unique opportunity to construct a THg and MeHg flux budget for this single well-constrained wetland. A 24-hour sampling event was conducted over a full diurnal tidal cycle during August 2008. Particulate and filter-passing (0.45μm) THg and MeHg concentrations were assessed, in addition to concentrations of chlorophyll-a and total suspended solids. These measurements were coupled to water flux calculations from a USGS-derived hydrodynamic model based on tidal prism relationships at this site. The resulting Hg load calculations demonstrated that for this 24-hour period, the marsh was a net source of dissolved MeHg to the bay and a net sink of particulate THg from the bay. To determine where and when Hg was being methylated within the marsh environment, sediment percent (%) MeHg (a surrogate measure of MeHg production efficiency) was examined for 2 years along 8 transects, seasonally and across three marsh elevations (subtidal, low-intertidal, and high-intertidal). The low-intertidal zone (cordgrass-dominated) had higher sediment %MeHg than the other two elevations. Sediment %MeHg was also higher during summer than during winter, highest at the sediment surface (0-2cm), correlated with sediment organic content, and elevated

  19. OCCULTISM AND MEDIUMSHIP IN FERNANDO PESSOA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alisson Diêgo Dias de Medeiros

    2016-03-01

    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.

    Full Text Available This article is a brief review on the precision clocks in use by the Spanish Navy during the XVIII, XIX and XX centuries. It deals with the introduction in Spain of marine chronometers needed for the application of the new techniques of astronomical navigation and also, with the evolution of the methods for time keeping and determination by astronomical pendulum clocks. Both facts placed the Navy and its Observatory in a good starting position for future activity in the field of the scientific study of time in our country.

    Este artículo presenta un breve estudio sobre los relojes de precisión usados por la Armada española durante los siglos XVIII, XIX y XX. Se trata, por una parte, sobre la introducción en España de los cronómetros marinos, necesarios para la aplicación de las nuevas técnicas de navegación astronómica. Se estudia, además, la evolución del sistema de determinación y conservación de la hora mediante péndulos astronómicos, origen del servicio horario del Observatorio de San Femando. Ambas vertientes sitúan a la Marina, y a su Observatorio, en un lugar preferente en los trabajos relacionados con el cómputo científico del tiempo en nuestro país.

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available Desde una visión interdisciplinaria, este trabajo busca reconocer actitudes populistas en la narrativa y el habla de Fernando Vallejo. 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.

    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.

    Full Text Available In his latest book, Miradas al último espejo, Fernando Ortiz remembers people and places of their own existence. He reflects on poetry and emphasizes the importance of tradition. The past lives in words of beauty and emotion, which break the distance between past and present. 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. This article considers the work of Peruvian artist Fernando Bryce through the prism of this «art of history».

With an archive-like aesthetics, Bryce selects documents that he subsequently copies in ink on paper in order to construct new readings of history. His selection

    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?

    Arcadio Díaz Quiñones

    2011-01-01

    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.

    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.

    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.

  18. San Marino.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1985-02-01

    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

    What is the attitude of the general public towards hunting? As a recreational activity, hunting stands apart from other forms of outdoor recreation like birdwatching in that it involves the pursuit and killing of wild animals. Today, it is in a tight spot. It has been criticized from animal ethics......, hunting organized as a group hunt, and single day leases of hunting grounds. Respondents with a “mutualist” wildlife value orientation had the most negative attitude towards hunting (39%), “distanced” respondents were the most indifferent (44%), and “utilitarians” were the most positive (61%).

    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.

    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.

Consistent with the idea of Static Drama, Pessoa’s Fausto sights the construction of an animistic and apathetic tragedy, supported on a discursive monologism and the tragic conception of existence.

    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

    Gustavo Ramos de Souza (UEL

    2016-04-01

    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. Paulo: “Calamidade Pública”, “Zero grau de Libra” e “Reflexões sobre um fora-da-lei do Atrolho”.KEYWORDS: Chronic. City. Caio Fernando Abreu

    Full Text Available In this paper, I would like to analyse El río del tiempo by Fernando Vallejo from the following hypothesis: time in self writing narrative becomes enigmatic until it turns into an edge where souvenirs come and go. Vallejo makes edges that get him out of time, out of any possible representation. These passages provoke the desbarrancadero de los recuerdos, allow the entrance of fiction in a self writing narrative and make the self becomes impersonal. The space, as a place of memory, becomes a temporal edge, and the front door corridor of Santa Anita ́s house controls the writing of memory.

    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

    2016-01-01

    Purpose: This paper responds to the question, is exercise medicine? It does so using a qualitative case study that proposes that exercise is recreation. The study (1) describes and reflects upon an exercise is recreation metaphor, (2) establishes the principles and processes used to develop a sport park within which exercise is recreation, and (3) presents a comparative analysis of the exercise is recreation approach with a UK quality framework for“exercise referrals”. Methods: Four years of documentation were collated and placed into 14 categories: (1) university strategies, (2) plans of the site, (3) policy documents, (4) minutes of a steering group, (5) contemporary documents, (6) organisational charts, (7) responses to local government policies on sport, (8) consultation documents, (9) operational procedures, (10) facility specifications, (11) partnership agreements, (12) material relating to the university’s work on events, (13) notes on the universities sport department, and (14) timetables. These data were analysed through a 4-stage process which used recreation as the analytical theme for a comparative analysis. Results: The characteristics of the exercise is recreation metaphor in this case are (1) a focus on the experience of the user, (2) the promotion of well-being, (3) the importance of community, (4) embracing inclusivity, (5) sport, (6) aesthetics, and (7) leisure time. The principles and processes used to develop the sport park were (1) custodianship, (2) partnerships, (3) values, (4) inter-professional working, (5) local heritage, (6) change, (7) the natural park environment, and (8)“riding the bike as you build it”. The comparative analysis with a UK quality framework for“exercise referrals”clearly shows a difference from an exercise is recreation approach.

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. The male:female ratio for the dry season was similar for both species but in the wet season it was three times higher for T. kulczynskii.A fêmea de Zimiromus hortenciae Buckup & Brescovit, 1993 é descrita pela primeira vez.

  11. Human brain disease recreated in mice

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Marx, J.

    1990-12-14

    In the early 1980s, neurologist Stanley Prusiner suggested that scrapie, an apparently infectious degenerative brain disease of sheep, could be transmitted by prions, infectious particles made just of protein - and containing no nucleic acids. But prion research has come a long way since then. In 1985, the cloning of the gene encoding the prion protein proved that it does in fact exist. And the gene turned out to be widely expressed in the brains of higher organisms, a result suggesting that the prion protein has a normal brain function that can somehow be subverted, leading to brain degeneration. Then studies done during the past 2 years suggested that specific mutations in the prion gene might cause two similar human brain diseases, Gerstmann-Straeussler-Scheinker syndrome (GSS) and Creutzfelt-Jakob disease. Now, Prusiner's group at the University of California, San Francisco, has used genetic engineering techniques to recreate GSS by transplanting the mutated prion gene into mice. Not only will the animal model help neurobiologists answer the many remaining questions about prions and how they work, but it may also shed some light on other neurodegenerative diseases as well.

The findings described the way people do recreational shopping and how shopping malls use as leisure space and become facilitators of recreational shopping activities. Females use malls to fulfill their recreational and leisure shopping experiences as this is the great way of enjoying shopping for females of small towns. In malls females not only enjoy product experiences but services experiences also which makes their shopping interesting. The way the female of this age category use malls help the marketers and retailers to understand this segment shopping patterns.

    Historically, many of the most important mathematical concepts arose from problems that were recreational in origin. This book takes advantage of that fact, using recreational mathematics - problems, puzzles and games - to teach students how to think critically. Encouraging active participation rather than just observation, the book focuses less on mathematical results than on how these results can be applied to thinking about problems and solving them. Each chapter contains a diverse array of problems in such areas as logic, number and graph theory, two-player games of strategy, solitaire ga

    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. La consolidación de éstas, con la creación de la Institución Hispanocubana de Cultura, posibilitó la acogida de exiliados intelectuales españoles en 1939.

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.

    Full Text Available Recreational architecture is a branch of architectural activity whose main object is formation of recreational spaces (territories, buildings, complexes and equipment. The goal of recreational architecture is to create optimal (comfortable, lovely and realizable environment for all recreation types and forms. This goal is realized by projects which are based on scientific research and recommendations. This activity needs more than casual work and living environment. It needs special space and equipment: territory, water area, buildings, and rooms. Everything can be called recreational environment. Recreational environment can be of various dimensional scales: enormous seaside or lake areas intended for recreation, resorts, recreational institution complexes and many single buildings, beaches, forest parks, pools. Recreational environment is possible not only out of town but in town as well. Beginning of recreational architecture is observed in antique cultures, but as a separate specific architectural activity branch it rapidly began to spread in last century first half and in Lithuania – in the last four decades. In this work, analysis of evaluating recreational architecture is made seeking to reveal recreational architecture evaluating criteria and their use .Article in Lithuanian

The objective of this paper is to analyse how these recreational aspects are reflected at the national level in core forest...... in the field of outdoor recreation, and reveal similarities, differences, gaps and future needs. Among the main findings is a contradiction between the expressed political importance of outdoor recreation at the national level, and the absence of binding commitments for action. The majority of the countries...... surveyed recognise and express outdoor recreation in some form of political and/or legislative way. However, recreation monitoring or measurements are rarely mentioned in relevant policies or acts at the national, regional or local level, perhaps due to a l ack of political will or resources.

  6. An Ecosystem Approach to Recreation Location Quotients

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mary Vogel

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Despite the widespread agreement on the importance of preserving ecological integrity in conservation and outdoor recreation decision-making processes, traditional metrics analyzing the supply of and demand for conservation and recreation resources have focused on geographical and population-centric units of measurement rather than ecological ones. One tool past researchers have used to inform recreation resource planning is the recreation location quotient (RLQ. While simple park-to-population ratios or acres-per-capita metrics provide a base measure of carrying capacity and are often useful to set broad recreation supply standards, the RLQ offers a more nuanced snapshot of supply and demand by comparing regional ratios to a standardized reference region. The RLQ is thus able to provide a statistic or quotient that highlights regions where recreation resources are particularly abundant and/or scarce relative to a reference area. This project expands the past RLQ analyses by investigating the distribution of recreation resources across the 10 ecological sections found within the US state of Minnesota. RLQs were calculated using recreation trail mileage, natural resource and recreation area acreage data, and recreation facility data from federal, state, and local agencies. Results found notable differences in supply of recreation resources across ecological sections. Some sections were considerably underrepresented in recreation resources-per area (e.g., Red River Valley and North Central Glaciated Plains while others were underrepresented in recreation resources-per capita (e.g., Minnesota and Northeast Iowa Morainal. The RLQ statistics and resulting maps illustrating relative surplus or deficiencies can inform future land acquisition decisions and highlight the need for cross-jurisdictional planning in order to ensure outdoor recreation systems are ecologically representative. Possible implications and recommendations for future planning

  7. Nephrotoxicity of recreational party drugs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Berney-Meyer, Linda; Putt, Tracey; Schollum, John; Walker, Robert

    2012-02-01

    N-benzylpiperazine (BZP) is the active ingredient in recreational 'party' pills with a stimulant, euphoric mechanism of action akin to that of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or ecstasy). Many people (ab)use BZP-based party pills usually without any significant toxic effects. However, nephrotoxicity secondary to hyperthermia and rhabdomyolysis has been reported. Another serious renal-related side-effect is hyponatraemia with acute cerebral oedema. There is also evidence that these agents may have a specific toxic effect producing acute kidney injury. Thus, acute kidney injury either direct or secondary to the effects of BZP or MDMA need to be considered when any individual presents with symptoms of a recreational party drug overdose.

    Several classes of drugs have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and occurrence of arrhythmias potentially involved in sudden deaths in chronic users even at therapeutic doses. The study presented herein focuses on pathological changes involving the heart possibly due to methadone use. 60 cases were included in the study in total and were divided into three groups (therapeutic methadone users: 20 cases, recreational methadone users: 20 cases, and sudden death group in subjects who had never taken methadone: 20 cases). Autopsies, histology, biochemistry and toxicology were performed in all cases. Macroscopic and microscopic investigation results in therapeutic methadone users were similar to those observed in sudden, unexpected deaths in non-methadone users. In recreational methadone consumers, macroscopic and microscopic examination of the heart failed to provide results consistent with acute or chronic myocardial or coronary damage, thereby corroborating the hypothesis of death most likely following respiratory depression.

    2016-03-01

    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

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.

    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.

    Parks and protected area managers use zoning to decrease interpersonal conflict between recreationists. Zoning, or segregation, of recreation-often by non-motorized and motorized activity-is designed to limit physical interaction while providing recreation opportunities to both groups. This article investigated the effectiveness of zoning to reduce recreation conflict in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area in Colorado, USA. Despite a zoning management system, established groomed travel routes were used by both non-motorized recreationists (backcountry skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers) and motorized recreationists (snowmobilers). We hypothesized that persistent recreation conflict reported by non-motorized recreationists was the result of recreation occurring in areas of mixed non-motorized and motorized use, mostly along groomed routes. We performed a geospatial analysis of recreation [from Global Positioning System (GPS) points, n = 1,233,449] in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area to identify areas of mixed non-motorized and motorized use. We then surveyed non-motorized recreationists (n = 199) to test whether reported conflict is higher for respondents who traveled in areas of mixed-use, compared with respondents traveling outside areas of mixed-use. Results from the geospatial analysis showed that only 0.7 % of the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area contained recreation from both groups, however that area contained 14.8 % of all non-motorized recreation and 49.1 % of all motorized recreation. Survey analysis results showed higher interpersonal conflict for all five standard conflict variables among non-motorized respondents who traveled in areas of mixed-use, compared with those traveling outside mixed-use areas. Management implications and recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of zoning are provided.

    Parks and protected area managers use zoning to decrease interpersonal conflict between recreationists. Zoning, or segregation, of recreation—often by non-motorized and motorized activity—is designed to limit physical interaction while providing recreation opportunities to both groups. This article investigated the effectiveness of zoning to reduce recreation conflict in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area in Colorado, USA. Despite a zoning management system, established groomed travel routes were used by both non-motorized recreationists (backcountry skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers) and motorized recreationists (snowmobilers). We hypothesized that persistent recreation conflict reported by non-motorized recreationists was the result of recreation occurring in areas of mixed non-motorized and motorized use, mostly along groomed routes. We performed a geospatial analysis of recreation [from Global Positioning System (GPS) points, n = 1,233,449] in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area to identify areas of mixed non-motorized and motorized use. We then surveyed non-motorized recreationists ( n = 199) to test whether reported conflict is higher for respondents who traveled in areas of mixed-use, compared with respondents traveling outside areas of mixed-use. Results from the geospatial analysis showed that only 0.7 % of the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area contained recreation from both groups, however that area contained 14.8 % of all non-motorized recreation and 49.1 % of all motorized recreation. Survey analysis results showed higher interpersonal conflict for all five standard conflict variables among non-motorized respondents who traveled in areas of mixed-use, compared with those traveling outside mixed-use areas. Management implications and recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of zoning are provided.

    Full Text Available The aim of this research was to reconstruct vegetation changes (with climate inferences that occurred during the Holocene in the Fernando de Noronha Island, Pernambuco State, northeastern Brazil. 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.

Os Vertissolos de FN são formados a partir de rochas básicas, tufos vulcânicos e sedimentos aluvionares e estão associados às superfícies rebaixadas com drenagem impedida do planalto central ou da baixada litorânea. Tendo em vista a necessidade de preservação ambiental, uso agrícola ou geotécnico e características peculiares desse ambiente insular, os Vertissolos de FN precisam de melhor entendimento de seus atributos. O objetivo deste trabalho foi, portanto, caracterizar morfológica, física, química e mineralogicamente Vertissolos de ocorrência comum na ilha de Fernando de Noronha. Três perfis de Vertissolos derivados de diferentes materiais de origem, classes de drenagem e níveis de salinidade e sodicidade foram descritos e coletados para realização das análises de caracterização.

Tem como objetivo explorar a progressiva aproximação entre a prosa e a lírica em narrativas produzidas nas últimas décadas do século XX e XXI. Partimos do pressuposto que, muitas vezes, a narrativa do século XX aproxima diferentes gêneros e constrói uma prosa impregnada de elementos da lírica. Compreendemos a complexidade da delimitação dos gêneros literários nos últimos trinta anos ao investigar marcas líricas em narrativas curtas como as construídas pelo escritor paulistano. Tomaremos como base teórica as considerações de Octavio Paz (1972, 1994, Adorno (2003, Rosenfeld (1991, Berman (1987, no que se refere ao delineamento da narrativa e, em alguns casos, as considerações de Friedrich (1991, Baudelaire (1999 e Octavio Paz (2012 quanto aos elementos da lírica moderna em diálogo com a prosa de ficção. Nosso intuito é investigar elementos como a subjetividade, o traço individual de expressão e a utilização do ritmo, de imagens e sons próprios à lírica como recursos estilísticos na obra Violência e Paixão, de Bonassi.

    Pablo Martínez Capdevila

    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.

  13. The artists' materials of Fernando Melani: A precursor of the Poor Art artistic movement in Italy

    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.

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 We propose an integrated Mixed Reality methodology for recreating ancient daily life that features realistic simulations of animated virtual human actors (clothes, body, skin, face who augment real environments and re-enact staged storytelling dramas. We aim to go further from traditional concepts of static cultural artifacts or rigid geometrical and 2D textual augmentations and allow for 3D, interactive, augmented historical character-based event representations in a mobile and wearable setup. This is the main contribution of the described work as well as the proposed extensions to AR Enabling technologies: a VR/AR character simulation kernel framework with real-time, clothed virtual humans that are dynamically superimposed on live camera input, animated and acting based on a predefined, historically correct scenario. We demonstrate such a real-time case study on the actual site of ancient Pompeii.

    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.

Our approach allows us to estimate individual-specific preferences for recreational use of different forest types. These estimates are used in a second stage...... of the analysis where we test whether preferences depend on access to recreation sites. We find that there is significant preference heterogeneity with respect to most forest attributes. The spatial analysis shows that preferences for forests with parking and picnic facilities are correlated with having access...

    Full Text Available Los estudios sobre la cultura en el siglo XX tienen en Fernando Ortiz un exponente de excelencia. El eclecticismo metodológico de su trabajo desde la antropología, la historia y la etnografía no solo da cuenta de los rasgos de la cultura cubana, sino que además ofrece herramientas analíticas para comprender el proceso de formación de la cultura latinoamericana. El artículo presenta un recorrido por el pensamiento teórico de Fernando Ortiz, sus motivaciones y herencias intelectuales, hasta llegar a la formulación del neologismo «transculturación». Ello como punto de partida para un análisis sobre las condiciones de posibilidad para pensar a Ortiz efectivamente como parte de un proyecto de estudios culturales en Cuba o como un autor cercano a estos debido a las problemáticas abordadas en su obra.

    Full Text Available O processo de pluralização do campo religioso brasileiro em finais do século XIX, evidenciou a constituição de um mercado competitivo de bens de salvação. Diante desse quadro de perda do monopólio da igreja católica e a ascensão de outras vertentes religiosas, evidenciamos as lutas dos grupos espíritas e suas respectivas estratégias de inserção no espaço social a partir da trajetória de Fernando Souza do Ó, líder espírita santa-mariense. Nesse sentido, temos por objetivo analisar as posições políticas e filosóficas assumidas por Fernando do Ó no jornal Diário do Interior no período de 1930 a 1940, referenciando assim as interpretações do personagem sobre sociedade e nação.

  1. A study of the Brazilian Fernando de Noronha island and Rocas atoll wakes in the tropical Atlantic

    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.

Ao perscrutar esse percurso – por meio dos veículos de comunicação religiosos – evidencia-se como o prelado constituiu-se em referencial das mudanças da Igreja no Brasil, a partir de meados do século XX, partindo de uma visão eclesiológica e uma prática pastoral voltada para o interior da instituição, cujo ápice foi uma concepção reiterada da Igreja como povo de Deus, voltada para a comunidade. Nesse processo, chama atenção a destacada participação de Dom Fernando na criação da Conferência Nacional dos Bispos do Brasil (CNBB, em 1952, e seus pronunciamentos durante o Concílio Vaticano II (1962-1965.

  3. Generation of domestic waste electrical and electronic equipment on Fernando de Noronha Island: qualitative and quantitative aspects.

    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.

    Full Text Available The subject matter of the research is the tourist and recreation complex of Kabardino-Balkar Republic. The purpose of the work is to provide solutions to problems of the republic tourist and recreation complex development. The results obtained from the study showed that in spite of the fact that in the region’s development certain positive steps are taken, according to the indicators of the tourism and recreation development, the region has not reach the level of the 1990th yet, the possibilities of this major sector of the republic economy remain not demanded. It is highlighted, that the most important factor in the tourist and recreation complex development is its infrastructure condition. It is recommended to use the model of the infrastructure management aimed at providing its effective functioning and development due to formation of interaction system at every power level through a network of the centers of the tourist and recreation complex development. In the article, the need for the use of the innovative approaches for the republic tourist and recreation complex development in the particular development of the new tourist directions are also found. For the purpose to improve the professional training of personnel for the tourism and recreation sphere, the need for a transition to multilevel training of personnel is proved. The main directions of the republic image development on the basis of designing and implementing of the regional program of its image development as the tourist territory and creation of the tourist information center are defined. Realization of all these problems allows to develop a highly effective and competitive tourist and recreation complex in Kabardino-Balkaria.

During the transition to the second millenium BC, Bell Beaker groups appear in the sequence. They exploit new lithic resources, adapt their domestic stock for increased mobility, and practice new diversified funerary rituals in the settlement. The temporal framework is supported by a sequence of many C14 and TL dates.  

    El trabajo ofrece una primera aproximación al Yacimiento Calcolítico de Camino de Las Yeseras donde se ha documentado una ocupación a lo largo del III milenio que, en el tránsito al II milenio AC, acoge a grupos poseedores de cerámica campaniforme que renuevan los equipos materiales con la explotación de nuevos recursos líticos, adaptan su cabaña a una mejor movilidad y practican rituales funerarios diversificados dentro del poblado. El marco temporal se avala con una importante secuencia de dataciones de C14 y TL, plenamente coincidentes.  

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    Parsons, Tom; Bruns, Terry R.; Sliter, Ray

    2005-01-01

    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.

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.

In this work are given basic assumptions for development of sport recreational shapes of tourism with stress to natural potentials that directly determine shape of sport recreational activities that represent basis of tourist offer. Offer should be created in that way that it is adapted to wide segment of recreational guests and not professional sportsmen, although they also should not be underestimated but one should know that in order to create conditions for arrival of sports professionals offer has to be completely different and more specialized that requires creating of conditions of existence of highly developed sports infrastructure, while for amateurs a lot can be done in “system of improvising”, satisfying basic criteria – recreation in conditions of untouched and well preserved nature with securing maximal level of security and protection of guests, in order to prevent possible unwilling consequences that can lead to injury of guests and for development and realization of such project one need a much less funds than is building of facilities that should meet standards of professional sportsmen. The aim is to create good offer at good infrastructure, logistics and with good equipment with securing maximal security, adaptation to various wishes of guests, taking in consideration their structure is conditioned by age, health condition, physical fitness as personal wishes toward sports and recreational activities.

    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.

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.

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available One of the characteristics of the armed Colombian conflict is the murder of civilians by the members of organisms of national security, who accuse those they kill of participating in a subversive strategy led by the Colombian Communist Party, which in turn supposedly originates in the revolutionary war, antithesis of the classic war. In Colombia, the phenomenon of revolutionary war has been approached in depth by the officer Fernando Landazábal Reyes. This article tries to show the principal features of the revolutionary war, from the perspective of the mentioned military man and the way since it could have reverberated in the armed colombian conflict.

  17. The homoerotic images in Ode Marítima by Fernando Pessoa. Diving in the unfathomable: sea and imaginary

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ella Ferreira Bispo

    2017-03-01

    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.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

  20. Al compás del fin del mundo: La Virgen de los sicarios de Fernando Vallejo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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.

  9. Parks, recreation, and public health collaborative.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kruger, Judy

    2008-12-03

    The primary goal of many park and recreation agencies is to provide resources and programs that improve quality of life for the community. Increasing physical activity is one aspect of this agenda. Promoting physical activity is a public health goal; however, increasing population-level physical activity will require access to places for physical activity (e.g. parks). Practitioners and policy makers need more information to document the roles that parks and recreation facilities play to promote physical activity and contribute to public health. A working group of approximately 20 professionals experienced in data collection came together to discuss the needs for better surveillance and measurement instruments in the fields of parks, recreation, and public health. The working group made two major recommendations: (1) the need for collaborative research and data sharing, and (2) the need for surveillance measures to demonstrate the amount of health-related physical activity acquired in the park setting.

    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.

  10. Conditionally pathogenic fungi in recreational waters

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matavulj Milan N.

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available The improvement of health and life conditions depends on various environmental factors. The exposition to organic and inorganic pollutants, as well as to the broad spectar of microorganisms is one of these factors. Medically important fungi have been increasing their number recently especially in urban and in recreational zones. Some of them, first of all molds and yeasts, are involved by different means in causing more or less serious diseases of man and animals. Frequency of alergic symptoms and human mycotic lesions increased significantly during last decades. Such phenomena have provoked more scientific attention recently. According to the available literature data, micro-fungi, causing mycoses and "environmental" fungi too could be considered as an important factor of health risk, being neglected and underestimated so far, especially in analyses of safe use of recreational waters and surrounding areas, among them swimming pools, river and sea beaches. On the basis of such statement there arises conclusion that water and ground of recreational zones could serve as vectors in transmission pathways of potentially or conditionally pathogenic fungi, being dangerous especially for immunocompromised individuals, which suggests inclusion of qualitative and quantitative composition of fungal community into a continual monitoring of hygienic status of recreational zones.

  12. A virtue analysis of recreational marijuana use.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sullivan, Ezra; Austriaco, Nicanor

    2016-05-01

    Several empirical studies suggest that recreational marijuana is popularly perceived as an essentially harmless rite of passage that ends as young people settle into their careers and their adult intimate relationships. Is this perception accurate? To answer this question, we evaluate the morality of recreational marijuana use from a virtue perspective guided by the theological synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas. Since the medical data reveals that recreational marijuana use is detrimental to the well-being of the user, we conclude that it is a vicious activity, an instance of the vice of intoxication, and as such would be morally illicit. In contrast to its medical use, the recreational use of marijuana cannot be justified for at least three reasons. First, as scientists have amply documented, it harms the organic functioning of the human body. Second, it impedes our ability to reason and in so doing does harm to us. Finally, it has lasting detrimental effects on the user and his neighbor, even when it occurs in a casual setting. Intoxication is always contrary to the integral good of the person. Thus, the use of marijuana is never warranted even for good, non-medical reasons.

    Background. Sports and recreational accidents involving critical areas of the body occur commonly in the general population. Reports on their demographics and recommendations for screening procedures are, however, few. Purpose. To assess injuries of the craniofacial area, spine, and torso resulting from sports and recreational accidents with multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) as primary imaging method in a Level I trauma center. Material and Methods. All emergency room CT requests over a time span of 105 months were reviewed retrospectively for trauma mechanism and injury. Patients were identified using an electronic picture archiving and communications system (PACS), and MDCT studies interpreted by two radiologists independently. Results. Of a total of 5898 patients, 492 patients (301 boys/men, 191 girls/women, age range 2-76 years, mean 33.5 years, median 29.5 years) with sports or recreational accidents emerged. A total of 102 traumatic findings were diagnosed, thereof 72 (71%) serious. The three most commonly encountered serious injuries were intracranial injury, fractures of facial bones, and vertebral injuries. The three most common injury mechanisms were bicycling, horseback riding, and team ball sports. Patients from recreational activities were on average significantly younger (29.2 years) than those from sports accidents (36.9 years; P < 0.001). Only age groups <21 years and 41-50 years differed in injury severity from the other age groups (P = 0.004 and P = 0.063, respectively). Of all trauma mechanisms, only bicycling had a significantly increased risk of injury (P < 0.001). Conclusion. Injuries in sports and recreational accidents presented with an overall incidence of 21%, of which 71% are serious. The most common mechanisms of injury were bicycling, horseback riding, and team ball sports. The largest incidence of serious injury involved bicycling. Because of the high probability of a serious injury and the high energies that are often involved

    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

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.

    Full Text Available Abuja Master Plan provided development of adequate Green Areas and other Recreational Facilities within the Federal Capital City (FCC, as part of its sustainability principles and provided for these recreational facilities within each neighborhood (FCDA, 1979. However, there have been several recent foul cries about the negative development of recreational facilities and the abuse of the Master Plan in the FCC.  The motivation for carrying out this study arose from the observation that recreational facilities in Phase 1 of the Federal Capital City Abuja are not clearly developed as intended by the policy makers and thus, the need to identify the recreational facilities in the Phase 1 of FCC and observe their level of development as well as usage. The field survey revealed that the Central Business District and Gazupe have higher numbers of recreational facilities with 45 and 56. While Wuse II (A08 and Wuse II (A07 Districts have lesser recreational facilities with 10 and 17. The field survey further revealed that all the districts in Phase 1 have over 35% cases of land use changes from recreational facilities to other use. The survey shows that over 65% of these recreational facilities are fully developed. The study also shows that just about 11% of the recreational sporting facilities were developed in line with the Abuja Master Plan in Phase 1. The study revealed that recreational facilities in Phase 1 of the FCC, Abuja has not being developed in compliance with the Abuja Master Plan.

  20. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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”.

  9. 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.

    Human activities are largely affecting coastal communities worldwide. Recreational perturbations have been overlooked in comparison to other perturbations, yet they are potential threats to marine biodiversity. They affect coastal communities in different ways, underpinning consistent shifts in fish and invertebrates assemblages. Several sites were sampled subjected to varying effects by recreational fishermen (low and high pressure) and scuba divers (low and high) in an overpopulated Atlantic island. Non-consistent differences in ecological, trophic and functional diversity were found in coastal communities, considering both factors ("diving" and "fishing"). Multivariate analyses only showed significant differences in benthic invertebrates between intensively-dived and non-dived sites. The lack of clear trends may be explained by the depletion of coastal resources in the study area, an extensively-affected island by overfishing.

  12. Impaired inhibitory control in recreational cocaine users.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lorenza S Colzato

    Full Text Available Chronic use of cocaine is associated with impairment in response inhibition but it is an open question whether and to which degree findings from chronic users generalize to the upcoming type of recreational users. This study compared the ability to inhibit and execute behavioral responses in adult recreational users and in a cocaine-free-matched sample controlled for age, race, gender distribution, level of intelligence, and alcohol consumption. Response inhibition and response execution were measured by a stop-signal paradigm. Results show that users and non users are comparable in terms of response execution but users need significantly more time to inhibit responses to stop-signals than non users. Interestingly, the magnitude of the inhibitory deficit was positively correlated with the individuals lifetime cocaine exposure suggesting that the magnitude of the impairment is proportional to the degree of cocaine consumed.

    2013-01-01

    The powers of lightning have been worshiped and feared by all known human cultures. While the chance of being struck by lightning is statistically very low, that risk becomes much greater in those who frequently work or play outdoors. Over the past 2 yr, there have been nearly 50 lightning-related deaths reported within the United States, with a majority of them associated with outdoor recreational activities. Recent publications primarily have been case studies, review articles, and a discussion of a sixth method of injury. The challenge in reducing lightning-related injuries in organized sports has been addressed well by both the National Athletic Trainers' Association and the National Collegiate Athletic Association in their guidelines on lightning safety. Challenges remain in educating the general population involved in recreational outdoor activities that do not fall under the guidelines of organized sports.

    Heavy metals are natural elements that generally occur in minute concentrations in the earth's crust. While some of these elements, in small quantities, are vital to life, most are harmful in larger doses. Various industrial and agricultural processes can result in dangerously high concentrations of heavy metals in our environment. Consequently, humans can be exposed to unsafe levels of these elements via the air we breathe, the water and food we consume, and the many products we use. During a two week study we collected numerous samples of sediments, water, food, and household items from around the San Francisco Bay Area that represent industrial, agricultural, and urban/residential settings. We analyzed these samples for Mercury (Hg), Lead (Pb), and Arsenic (As). Our goal was to examine the extent of our exposure to heavy metals in our daily lives. We discovered that many of the common foods and materials in our lives have become contaminated with unhealthy concentrations of these metals. Of our food samples, many exceeded the EPA's Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL) set for each metal. Meats (fish, chicken, and beef) had higher amounts of each metal than did non-meat items. Heavy metals were also prevalent in varying concentrations in the environment. While many of our samples exceeded the EPA's Sediment Screening Level (SSL) for As, only two other samples surpassed the SSL set for Pb, and zero of our samples exceeded the SSL for Hg. Because of the serious health effects that can result from over-exposure to heavy metals, the information obtained in this study should be used to influence our future dietary and recreational habits.

  20. Contributions of the US state park system to nature recreation.

    2011-08-23

    Nature recreation in the United States concentrates in publicly provided natural areas. They are costly to establish and maintain, but their societal contributions are difficult to measure. Here, a unique approach is developed to quantifying nature recreation services generated by the US state park system. The assessment first uses data from five national surveys conducted between 1975 and 2007 to consistently measure the amount of time used for nature recreation. The surveys comprise two official federal surveys and their predecessors. Each survey was designed to elicit nationally representative, detailed data on how people divide their time into different activities. State-level data on time use for nature recreation were then matched with information on the availability of state parks and other potentially important drivers of recreation, so that statistical estimation methods for nonexperimental panel data (difference-in-differences) could be used to examine the net contribution of state parks to nature recreation. The results show that state parks have a robust positive effect on nature recreation. For example, the approximately 2 million acres of state parks established between 1975 and 2007 are estimated to contribute annually 600 million hours of nature recreation (2.7 h per capita, approximately 9% of all nature recreation). All state parks generate annually an estimated 2.2 billion hours of nature recreation (9.7 h per capita; approximately 33% of all nature recreation). Using conventional approaches to valuing time, the estimated time value of nature recreation services generated by the US state park system is approximately $14 billion annually.

  13. Recreational System Optimization to Reduce Conflict on Public Lands

    Shilling, Fraser; Boggs, Jennifer; Reed, Sarah

    2012-09-01

    In response to federal administrative rule, the Tahoe National Forest (TNF), California, USA engaged in trail-route prioritization for motorized recreation (e.g., off-highway-vehicles) and other recreation types. The prioritization was intended to identify routes that were suitable and ill-suited for maintenance in a transportation system. A recreational user survey was conducted online ( n = 813) for user preferences for trail system characteristics, recreational use patterns, and demographics. Motorized trail users and non-motorized users displayed very clear and contrasting preferences for the same system. As has been found by previous investigators, non-motorized users expressed antagonism to motorized use on the same recreational travel system, whereas motorized users either supported multiple-use routes or dismissed non-motorized recreationists' concerns. To help the TNF plan for reduced conflict, a geographic information system (GIS) based modeling approach was used to identify recreational opportunities and potential environmental impacts of all travel routes. This GIS-based approach was based on an expert-derived rule set. The rules addressed particular environmental and recreation concerns in the TNF. Route segments were identified that could be incorporated into minimal-impact networks to support various types of recreation. The combination of potential impacts and user-benefits supported an optimization approach for an appropriate recreational travel network to minimize environmental impacts and user-conflicts in a multi-purpose system.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background This study examines changes in socio-demographic, environmental and intrapersonal factors associated with dog acquisition in non-dog owners at baseline to 12-months follow-up and the effect of dog acquisition on minutes per week of recreational walking. Methods RESIDE study participants completed self-administered questionnaires (baseline and 12-months follow-up measuring physical activity, dog ownership, dog walking behavior as well as environmental, intrapersonal and socio-demographic factors. Analysis was restricted to 'Continuing non-owners' (i.e., non-owners at both baseline and follow-up; n = 681 and 'New dog owners' (i.e., non-owners who acquired a dog by follow-up; n = 92. Results Overall, 12% of baseline non-owners had acquired a dog at follow-up. Dog acquisition was associated with working and having children at home. Those who changed from single to couple marital status were also more likely to acquire a dog. The increase in minutes of walking for recreation within the neighborhood from baseline to follow-up was 48 minutes/week for new dog owners compared with 12 minutes/week for continuing non-owners (p p p > 0.05 after further adjustment for change in baseline to follow-up variables. Increase in intention to walk was the main factor contributing to attenuation of the effect of dog acquisition on recreational walking. Conclusion This study used a large representative sample of non-owners to examine the relationship between dog acquisition and recreational walking and provides evidence to suggest that dog acquisition leads to an increase in walking. The most likely mechanism through which dog acquisition facilitates increased physical activity is through behavioral intention via the dog's positive effect on owner's cognitive beliefs about walking, and through the provision of motivation and social support for walking. The results suggest that behavioral intention mediates the relationship between dog acquisition

    We studied 39 recreational rock climbers to determine the incidence and pattern of injuries sustained in the sport at their level. Eleven climbers (26%), who climbed beyond the sport level, had sustained a major injury from a fall. Thirty-five climbers (89%) sustained at least one significant injury. Fifty percent of the injuries involved the hand or wrist. Only seven climbers (19%) had evidence of a digital pulley injury (climber's finger). Four climbers (11%) had evidence of a carpal tunnel syndrome. Twenty climbers (50%) had tendinitis in an upper extremity on physical examination.

    The United States Geological Survey Golden Gate Field Station conducted a baseline inventory of terrestrial vertebrates within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties, California between 1990 and 1997. We established 456 permanent study plots in 6 major park habitats, including grassland, coastal scrub, riparian woodland, coastal wetland, broad-leaved evergreen forest, and needle-leaved evergreen forest. We tested multiple inventory methods, including live traps, track plate stations, and artificial cover boards, across all years and habitats. In most years, sampling occurred in 3?4 primary sampling sessions between July and September. In 1994, additional sampling occurred in February and May in conjunction with an assessment of Hantavirus exposure in deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus). Overall, we detected 32 mammal, 14 reptile, and 6 amphibian species during 25,222 trap-nights of effort. The deer mouse?the most abundant species detected--accounted for 67% of total captures. We detected the Federal Endangered salt marsh harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys raviventris) at one coastal wetland plot in 1992. This project represents the first phase in the development of a comprehensive terrestrial vertebrate inventory and monitoring program for GGNRA. This report summarizes data on relative abundance, frequency of occurrence, distribution across habitat types, and trap success for terrestrial vertebrates detected during this 7-year effort. It includes comprehensive descriptions of the inventory methods and sampling strategies employed during this survey and is intended to help guide the park in the implementation of future longterm ecological monitoring programs.

    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, un...

    Costa, Nilson do Rosario; Lamarca, Isabel

    2013-06-01

    This article analyzes the configuration of the active civil servant workforce of the Brazilian government during Fernando Henrique Cardoso - FHC - (1995-2002) and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva - Lula - (2003-2010) mandates. The article associates the condition of the workforce of the Brazilian government with the changes in the government coalition. The residual participation of the Ministry of Health (MOH) in the direct provision of public services influenced the downward trend of the federal workforce.The implementation of the Unified Health System (SUS) was strongly affected by the structural adjustment of the workforce at the federal level during the decades of 1990 and 2000.

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available The percentage of adults who engage in regular leisure time physical activity is decreasing, causing an increase in risk for several health issues. Research indicates that the more physically active individuals are in their leisure time as adolescents and young adults, the more likely they are to remain active throughout the lifespan. The number of individuals entering the college or university setting has continued to increase over the past decade. Institutions of higher education are supporting the construction and management of large recreational facilities on-campuses for college students to use for leisure time physical activity behaviors. Many administrators are aware of the benefits of participation in leisure time physical activity among college students including: higher grades, less stress, better adjustment and higher persistence to graduation. Given the increase in popularity of comprehensive campus recreation programs and facilities, there is a need for theory based research to bridge the gap in assessing participation and developing intervention and educational materials to increase participation.

    Burnett, D; Smith, K; Smeltzer, C; Young, K; Burns, S

    The purpose of this study was to determine if rating of perceived exertion correlated with perceived muscle soreness during delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in female runners. This study examined the pre and post running economy measures and perceived muscle soreness before and after a 30-min downhill run (DHR) at -15% grade and 70% of the subjects predetermined maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 peak). Six female recreational runners (mean age = 24.5) performed level running at 65%, 75%, and 85% of their VO2 peak prior to DHR (baseline economy runs), as well as, immediately following and 4 successive days after the DHR. Subjective response related to perceived muscle soreness increased significantly from a mean of 2 (pre DHR) to 62 (2 days post DHR) on a scale of 1-100. Creatine kinase levels and oxygen consumption increased post DHR compared to pre DHR. Rating of perceived exertion did not change between the economy runs performed prior to or at any point after the DHR. Perceived muscle soreness is a better tool than the RPE scale to monitor exercise intensity for recreational female runners during periods of DOMS and running economy is adversely affected by DOMS.

    In this work, the development of a database on physical fitness is presented. As initial population to fill this database, people who practice recreational sports at the Universidad Simon Bolivar (USB) were chosen. The goal was studying individual physical fitness in order to structure exercise routines that gives certain benefits without risking the individual health, promoting a less sedentary way of life. Before the study, a low-cost noninvasive protocol was designed to determine the level of physical fitness. The methodology consisted of four steps: a) A review of existing protocols to propose a set of physical fitness (International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ)), cardiovascular (heart rate variability, heart rate recovery time and arterial blood pressure), anthropomorphic, aerobic (maximum oxygen consumption) and mood state (Profile of Mood State (POMS)) measurements, which allow sketching a complete profile on the sportsman physical fitness. b) Instrumental data collection. c) Electrocardiographic signal processing. d) Data post-processing using multivariate analysis. The database was composed of 26 subject from USB. Ten subjects were soccer players, ten were mountain climbers and six were sedentary people. Results showed that the heart rate recover time after 2-3 min, IPAQ and maximum oxygen consumption have higher weights for classifying individuals according to their habitual physical activity. Heart rate variability, as well as, POMS did not contribute greatly for discriminating recreational sport from sedentary persons.

  1. LANDSCAPING RECREATIONAL AREAS FOR WALKING IN A MOUNTAIN FOREST

    Full Text Available The aim of this study is the substantiation of recreational zones in the mountain forests for walking tourists. The article contains a functional zoning, design and spatial solution of landscapes of these zones. The aesthetic and recreational value of forests recreational areas increases the implementation of thinning. Implementation of thinning in the territory of the forest zone allocates places for relaxing and walking. This is the basis of functional separation of recreational areas. Coordinates of the objects of recreational areas (inputs and outputs, the center of the composition, toilets, natural monuments, gazebos, crossing trails and wooden sculptures are determined using GPS satnav. We can determine the spatial composition of landscapes with forest vegetation, relief and water space. This allows you to allocate places for sight-seeing platforms. Small architectural forms must be in harmony with the surrounding landscape. Walking paths form the basis recreation areas. Turns and bends of routes for walking must comply with the elements of the landscape. Areas for recreation are usually located along the trail in of water bodies and in places of disclosure prospects. The recreation area is limited to with an enclosure which fits into the forest landscapes. In this case, the fence should not interfere with of migration of small animals (herpetofauna, insectivores, and others. The harmony of landscape elements serves as a criterion of completion of design. In the recreation area fire prevention measures have to be carried out by tenants. Permissible load of tourists to recreation areas is determined by a special technique. Conclusions: there was proposed a new kind of recreation facilities in the mountain forests - the zone for walking tourists. When carrying out forestry works, there will be a minimum of expenses on arrangement of the zone. Negative consequences to the forest environment would also be minimized

    Full Text Available More often than not, male students are seen to be more active in recreation activity than female students. To investigate this matter, a study was done on the female recreational activity participation. This study investigated the perception and constraints towards recreation activity among female students in a university in Malaysia. This study used a questionnaire regarding the recreation activity to collect the findings. Sixty respondents have been selected randomly as the subject for this study. All the information that is obtained from the questionnaire has been collected and analyzed using SPSS. It was found recreation is most often perceived as ‘extreme sports’ by female students. Moreover, most of the female students perceived themselves as participating regularly in recreational activity. The reasons for not participating in recreational activity are of lack of time, low energy level, lack of participants, lack of facilities and money. It was also found female students prefer outdoor activities such as camping, abseiling and wall climbing. Future studies should compare the perception of male and female students’ on recreational activity.

  11. Recreational impacts on the fauna of Australian coastal marine ecosystems.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hardiman, Nigel; Burgin, Shelley

    2010-11-01

    This paper reviews recent research into the ecological impacts of recreation and tourism on coastal marine fauna in Australia. Despite the high and growing importance of water-based recreation to the Australian economy, and the known fragility of many Australian ecosystems, there has been relatively limited research into the effects of marine tourism and recreation, infrastructure and activities, on aquatic resources. In this paper we have reviewed the ecological impacts on fauna that are caused by outdoor recreation (including tourism) in Australian coastal marine ecosystems. We predict that the single most potentially severe impact of recreation may be the introduction and/or dispersal of non-indigenous species of marine organisms by recreational vessels. Such introductions, together with other impacts due to human activities have the potential to increasingly degrade recreation destinations. In response, governments have introduced a wide range of legislative tools (e.g., impact assessment, protected area reservation) to manage the recreational industry. It would appear, however, that these instruments are not always appropriately applied.

  3. Some economic aspects of recreational injuries.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Arundel, J T

    1974-06-01

    This paper deals with some basic features of accidents in recreation and will attempt to throw some light on their economic consequences. Let us examine sport as one aspect of recreation. As Williams (1973) put it, "Sport is a phenomenon of simple definition, but with well recognised features. It is essentially recreational, essentially physical, frequently competitive and always contrived." The number and type of participants has increased, along with the range of activities available. Classifications of sport, at best, are arbitrary but nevertheless are useful for analysis. These divisions may be land/air/water types; indoor/outdoor; team/individual; body contact/non-contact/vehicular; amateur/professional. Sports injuries are of two types, intrinsic or self-inflicted (Williams, 1973) and extrinsic. Intrinsic injuries refer to those as a result of over-use (leading, for example, to stress fractures) and to specific incidents not involving outside agents. Extrinsic injuries are caused by contact with external objects and form the bulk of injuries sustained in body-contact, vehicular (horses, cars, skis) and environmental-type sports. Extrinsic injuries are generally more severe because greater forces and velocities are involved. Appendix 1 lists the main sporting activities according to location of sport; individual or team participation; likelihood of extensive body contact; and professional status. Professional players not only suffer loss of earning capacity but may reflect a bad investment for an entrepreneur or reduce spectator attendance and gate taking. It is apparent that team sports, having substantial body contact, face a higher risk of moderate to serious injury than do individual, non-contact sports, although major injuries can be sustained in the latter, for example, sprains and dislocations in athletics, golf, tennis, etc. Other sports must be classed as dangerous because of the nature of competition, for example, motor racing and flying. These

    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.

Thanks to unpublished primary sources we have been able to delve into the life of this controversial military body marked by scandals and serious internal problems and discover if it really was the bulwark of the capital and the credibility of the kingdom as Viceroy Calleja, his colonel, intended.La presente investigación pretende acercarnos a la milicia urbana de los Voluntarios de Fernando VII de ciudad de México, en un primer momento como cuerpo de choque en el golpe de Estado del 16 de septiembre de 1808 y dos años después como garante de la seguridad de la capital virreinal hasta su disolución en vísperas de la independencia mexicana. Gracias a fuentes primarias inéditas hemos podido adentrarnos en la vida de este polémico cuerpo militar jalonado de escándalos y graves problemas internos y descubrir si realmente fueron el baluarte de la capital y la confianza del reino tal y como pretendió su coronel el virrey Calleja.

  15. Periurban forests shifting from recreation to wellness

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available In France and in Europe, periurban forests are subject to high social demands for recreational purposes. These demands take the form of frequent visits for sports or rest. Local governments have succeeded in creating new wooded parks close to cities that are highly appreciated by the population. A survey was run on visitors to forests around three mid-sized cities, addressing what they do in the forests and why. The answers revealed differences between suburban parks and larger national forests located farther from the cities. New approaches targeting health may also be observed on the part of both individuals and the health sector. These new approaches indicate the existence of a wellness function in periurban forests.

    The Treatment Education Project, an initiative of the Staten Island AIDS Task Force, often responds to requests for information on the effects of recreational drugs on people taking anti-HIV medications. There is very little research on the topic because the drugs are illegal and the effects tested with chemically pure street drugs are not likely to mirror those in the population using varied strengths and qualities of the drugs. There have been some controlled studies with methadone, and there is a trial underway to test the use of Marinol and marijuana with Crixivan. The Treatment Education Project also provides counseling, maintains Internet sites in both English and Spanish, and sets up treatment libraries. They also provide workshops for social service agencies and staff.

  17. Recreational Value of an Oasis in Oman

    Increasing demand for water to develop non-agricultural activities is causing water to be diverted to high-value uses at the expense of irrigation. However, agriculture provides a flow of amenities in the desert environment which are not either accounted or paid. Oases are spread all over the globe and are threatened for various reasons among which is the high pressure of demand for fresh water. This paper estimates the recreation use value of an oasis. The paper is based on the Misfat Al-Abryeen oasis in Oman, a man-made area of streams and woodland. The travel cost method is used through an on-site questionnaire distributed to 230 visitors. Around 75% of visitors to the oasis also visited other historical or ecological sites during the same day-trip. The econometric model is estimated using negative binomial regression with endogenous stratification. The average consumer surplus, or benefit, from visiting Misfat Al-Abryeen is estimated at US 104.74 per individual per trip. The total social benefit from this oasis is estimated at 366,590 per year. These results underscore the importance of the role played by irrigated agriculture in the provision of amenity services for the tourism sector in a desert environment. The sustainability of the irrigation activity depends on the recognition of the recreation role of oases and the transfer of part of these benefits to the farmers who maintain the irrigation system. The implementation of an entrance fee to the oasis might increase farmers' profit by 6-21%.

    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. En 1869 fue promovido al empleo de inspector médico, con destino como jefe de Sanidad Militar de Cataluña. En

    Although evidence suggests sport and recreation are powerful contributors to worldwide public health, sizable gender differences persist. It is unknown whether country characteristics moderate gender differences across countries. The primary purpose of this study was to examine if countries' levels of democracy and/or gender inequality moderate gender differences in sport and recreation membership across countries. The secondary purpose was to examine if democracy and/or gender inequality predicts overall rates of sport and recreation membership for both males and females. This study involved a nested cross-sectional design and employed the sixth wave (2013) of the world value survey (nSs=71,901, ncountries=52). Multiple hierarchal nonlinear Bernoulli models tested: (1) if countries' levels of democracy moderate gender differences in sport and recreation membership; and (2) if democracy is associated with increased sport and recreation membership for both males and females. Countries' level of democracy fully moderated gender differences in sport and recreation membership across countries. Moreover, democracy was positively associated with both male and female membership, even when controlling for individual and country-level covariates. Democratic political regimes may confer health benefits via increased levels of sport and recreation membership, especially for females. Future research should test mediating mechanisms.

    Full Text Available Different stakeholders managed recreational forests in Selangor, Malaysia. These stakeholders' involvements have risen a question whether their development have fulfilled the sustainable landscape requirement. The aim of this study was to understand and generate more comprehensive knowledge on the recreational forest landscape management towards forest sustainability. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the management of recreational forest in Selangor, Malaysia that affect landscape sustainability and to gain an overview of recreational forest landscape development in Peninsular Malaysia. The study applies three methods. First is the analysis of documents relating to sustainable landscape concept. Secondly, through case studies where three recreational forest sites in Selangor were selected to analyze their management practices towards landscape sustainability. Thirdly, field observations were carried out to collect data about existing physical conditions of the study sites. The results revealed that landscape management of these recreational forests were not in accordance with landscape sustainability approaches and needs improvement. This was caused by improper planning, low understanding among the staffs regarding sustainable landscape management, shortage of knowledgeable personnel, and poor supervision. Failure to adopt and implement sustainable landscape practices which include environment protection, social improvements, good governance, aesthetics enhancement, economy benefits, and harmonized designs can lead to the increase in the 'abandon syndrome' of some recreational forest sites in Peninsular Malaysia.

    A mountain-to-valley virtual hydrologic observatory in Central California provides a focus for data and information in support of hydrologic research, a testbed for prototype measurement systems, and guidance for development of measurement and cyber infrastructure in an actual observatory. The multiple rivers and watersheds making up the 60,000 km2 greater San Joaquin drainage are physically disconnected by mountain-front dams that provide flood control, hydropower, seasonal water delivery and recreation. However, the mountain and valley portions are institutionally connected in multiple ways. For example, each year the winter snowpack and watershed conditions determine the magnitude of annual runoff. Errors in snowpack measurements and runoff forecasts have huge economic implications for valley water users. Second, valley flood control, water quality, irrigation demand and hydropower operations have a very strong interest in influencing mountain watershed management. The broader aim of the Sierra Nevada-San Joaquin Hydrologic Observatory is to build research infrastructure and promote research for improving the knowledge base for sound hydrologic management in the Sierra Nevada, San Joaquin Valley and across the Western U.S. In the Sierra Nevada the current focus is on developing spatially distributed instrument clusters that, when blended with remotely sensed data, will improve water balance closure from hillslope to watershed scales. Five instrument clusters at or just above the rain-snow transition are in place and under development. In the San Joaquin Valley, the focus is on sensor systems for observing fertilizer application rates in agriculture, groundwater-surface water exchanges in rivers, and flow and mixing in the confluence zones between the main stem San Joaquin and tributary Merced Rivers. A common digital library and analysis framework further links the mountain and valley portions of the virtual observatory (see https://eng.ucmerced.edu/dev00/snsjno).

  4. Physical-recreational activities and persons with disability

    Full Text Available Recreational activities represent individual or organized group activities chosen by free will, which help individuals to maintain good health, physical and working condition. In addition to the required physical segment, recreation also includes mental component which refers to strengthening of the will and determination, acquisition and development of self-control. With physical and mental aspect of recreational activities, many authors especially emphasize the importance of socio-psychological component of recreation. The aim of this paper is to review the so far published scientific and professional works in which the problem of recreational activities of persons with cerebral palsy, sight impairment, intellectual disability and autism is discussed, by studying the available literature. During the research we used the electronic data base of Serbian Library Consortium for Coordinated Acquisition, Google Scholar, as well as published material available in print. The participation of persons with disabilities in physical-recreational activities in the community is determined by the individual characteristics of the person, but with the community factors as well. The results of many studies show that persons with disabilities participate less in leisure and physical recreational activities and that is largely related to the level of social integration of these persons. Taking into account the fact that the participation of persons with disabilities in physical-recreational activities largely correlates with the quality of life of these persons, it is necessary to increase the number of recreational services that the community offers, as well as to specialise, modify and adapt some of them in relation to the needs of these persons. Also, it is recommended that as an integral part of all therapeutic approaches to persons with disability, the training of these persons for the appropriate use of their leisure time be included.

    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。

  6. Isotopic Evidence of Nitrate Sources and its Relationship to Algae in the San Joaquin River, California

    Many competing demands have been placed on the San Joaquin River including deep water shipping, use as agricultural and drinking water, transport of agricultural and urban runoff, and recreation. These long-established demands limit the management options and increase the importance of understanding the river dynamics. The relationships among sources of water, nitrate, and algae in the San Joaquin River must be understood before management decisions can be made to optimize aquatic health. Isotopic analyses of water samples collected along the San Joaquin River in 2005-2007 have proven useful in assessing these relationships: sources of nitrate, the productivity of the San Joaquin River, and the relationship between nitrate and algae in the river. The San Joaquin River receives water locally from wetlands and agricultural return flow, and from three relatively large tributaries whose headwaters are in the Sierra Nevada. The lowest nitrate concentrations occur during periods of high flow when the proportion of water from the Sierra Nevada is relatively large, reflecting the effect of dilution from the big tributaries and indicating that a large fraction of the nitrate is of local origin. Nitrogen isotopes of nitrate in the San Joaquin River are relatively high (averaging about 12 per mil), suggesting a significant source from animal waste or sewage and/or the effects of denitrification. The d15N of nitrate varies inversely with concentration, indicating that these high isotopic values are also a local product. The d15N values of nitrate from most of the local tributaries is lower than that in the San Joaquin suggesting that nitrate from these tributaries does not account for a significant fraction of nitrate in the river. The source of the non-tributary nitrate must be either small unmeasured surface inputs or groundwater. To investigate whether groundwater might be a significant source of nitrate to the San Joaquin River, groundwater samples are being collected

    Full Text Available Most studies of sedentary behavior have focused on television use or screen time. This study aims to examine adolescent girls' participation in a variety of recreational sedentary behaviors (e.g., talking on the phone and hanging around, and their association with physical activity (PA, dietary behaviors, and body mass index. Data were from a sample of 283 adolescent girls. Recreational sedentary behavior, PA, and dietary behaviors were self-reported, and girls' height and weight were measured. Over 95% of girls engaged in at least one recreational sedentary behavior during the recall period. Watching television and hanging around were the most common behaviors. Watching television, using the Internet, and hanging around were associated with less PA; watching television, hanging around, and talking on the phone were associated with less healthful dietary behaviors. No associations were found with body mass index. Interventions may benefit from capitalizing on and intervening upon girls' common recreational sedentary behaviors.

  19. Culture of the Recreation, Democracy and Political Conscience

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alixon Reyes

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Recreation is a universal cultural and intangible patrimony. Besides, it has to do with all those experiences lived and felt by a human being while a transformation takes place towards it that he wishes, needs and gasps. But, the recreation has been confused with entertainment and amusement, elements that form a way of being and a way of thinking producing a cultural emptying of the recreation turning it into a banal and instrumental matter. And do not think that this is neutral and innocent. On the contrary, it is a trend that marks the fingerprint of a neocoloniality. This way, the recreation is done, is bought and sold, is programmed and is planned, offers to the measurement the one who can buy it and the one who can pay it, leaving of side the experience humanizes as vital point.

    The article deals with the issue of environmental and economic assessment of natural and recreational potential of Kuzbass. The purpose of the research is to study the trends in the development of the regional recreational potential, as well as to develop the methodological bases for creation of resort and recreational areas to improve the health of the population and increase the investment appeal of Kemerovo region. The constraints to improve the investment, environmental and economic performance of regional resorts are identified. The main result of the research is the development of the project to improve the stability of the socio-economic system of the region, on the basis of the mitigation of environmental and economic risks and the systematic development of recreational infrastructure. The practical significance of the study consists of the recommendations for regional and federal authorities concerning the development of socio-economic plans and forecasts, including the provision of a rationale for the status of priority development territories.

    Surfing consists of both high and low intensity paddling of varying durations, utilizing both the aerobic and anaerobic systems. Surf specific physiological studies lack adequate group sample sizes and VO2peak values are yet to determine differences between competitive and recreational surfers. The purpose of this study was therefore to provide a comprehensive physiological profile of both recreational and competitive surfers. This multi-site study involved 62 male surfers, recreational (n = 47) and competitive (n = 15). Anthropometric measurements were conducted followed by DEXA, anaerobic testing and finally aerobic testing. VO2peak was significantly greater in competitive compared to recreational surfers (M = 40.71 ± 3.28 vs. 31.25 ± 6.31 ml/kg/min, p strengths. Coaches and clinicians could then select appropriate training regimes to address weaknesses.

Subjects (10 males and 10 females were recruited from local taekwondo clubs in London, UK. Measurements taken included height, weight, girths, breadths and skinfold thicknesses at 6 sites. Body composition was expressed in terms of reverse ponderal index (RPI, sum of skinfolds as well as proportional weight and proportional sum of skinfolds. The data were analyzed by T-tests with a Dunn-Sidak-adjusted alpha. Although no difference was found in somatotype attitudinal distance (SAD (P>0.05, the women had a higher endomorphy (6.3±1.5 rating than the men (4.2±1.1 (t=-3.485, P=0.011. No differences were found in the meso- and ectomorphy components (P>0.05. There was no difference in RPI, indicating that the women did not carry more weight for height. However, the females (135.8±34.9 mm had a significantly higher absolute sum of six skinfolds than the males (77.0±23.2 mm (P=0.002 even when scaled to Phantom height (68.7±8.3 mm and 62.3±5.7 mm for women and men, respectively (P<0.001. Comparisons with elite taekwondo athletes seem to suggest that sexual dimorphism in somatotype and body composition is apparent regardless of competition level.

  3. Recreating Galileo's 1609 Discovery of Lunar Mountains

    2014-11-01

    The question of exactly which lunar features persuaded Galileo that there were mountains on the moon has not yet been definitively answered; Galileo was famously more interested in the concepts rather than the topographic mapping in his drawings and the eventual engravings. Since the pioneering work of Ewen Whitaker on trying to identify which specific lunar-terminator features were those that Galileo identified as mountains on the moon in his 1609 observations reported in his Sidereus Nuncius (Venice, 1610), and since the important work on the sequence of Galileo's observations by Owen Gingerich (see "The Mystery of the Missing 2" in Galilaeana IX, 2010, in which he concludes that "the Florentine bifolium sheet [with Galileo's watercolor images] is Galileo's source for the reworked lunar diagrams in Sidereus Nuncius"), there have been advances in lunar topographical measurements that should advance the discussion. In particular, one of us (E.T.W.) at the Scientific Visualization Studio of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has used laser-topography from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to recreate what Galileo would have seen over a sequence of dates in late November and early December 1609, and provided animations both at native resolution and at the degraded resolution that Galileo would have observed with his telescope. The Japanese Kaguya spacecraft also provides modern laser-mapped topographical maps.

  4. Social Capital in an Outdoor Recreation Context

    2010-02-01

    This study examined social capital development in three all-terrain vehicles (ATV) clubs in Maine using an adapted version of Lin’s (2001) social capital theory model. The structural components of social capital identified included collective assets and individual assets in the form of normative behavior and trust relationships. Also identified were counter-norms for individual ATV riders identified as having divergent norms from club members. The second component of social capital is access to and mobilization of network contacts and resources. Access networks in the context of the ATV clubs studied were identified as community and landowner relations while mobilization of resources was existent in club membership attempts toward self-governance and efforts of the statewide “umbrella” organization. Instrumental outcomes benefit society and expressive outcomes benefit the individual. Both types of returns are present in the data suggesting that ATV clubs are creating social capital. This is important information to clubs who desire to market themselves, improve their reputations, and enhance their volunteer association. It is of further interest to state governments who fund clubs through trail grants as proof that a return on investment is being realized. Theoretical and applied implications for these and other types of recreation-based volunteer associations (e.g., clubs, friends groups, advocacy groups) are presented.

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.

Investigation into the planning processes involving multiple stakeholder engagement such as San Francisco (SF) Public Utilities Commission, California Coastal Commission, National Park Service, SF Department of Public Works, SF Recreation and Park Department, SF Planning Department, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can shed light on trade-offs and synergies of different adaptation responses. The role of the coordinator - SF Planning and Urban Research Commission - as a mediator between different stakeholder interests and priorities, a realistic assessment of current hazard management practices specific to local contexts, and the necessity of combining hazard mitigation policies with coastal management and community management are the key findings of this research. They help inform policy formulation and decision-making in climate change adaptation, and provide a valuable case study that can be transferred to other locations.

    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.

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available Recreation activity preferences in forest settings were explored in a scene preference study. The importance of type of human intervention and the level of biodiversity for preference and intention to engage in recreation activities were examined in a sample of forestry and social science students in Sweden. Results showed that forestry students displayed an almost equally strong preference for natural-looking scenes as for scenes with traces of recreation (e.g., paths, whereas social science students preferred recreational scenes the most. Least preferred were scenes with traces of forest management. Different forest settings were furthermore preferred for different recreation activities. Recreational settings were favored for walking and going on outings, and natural-looking settings were more appreciated for picking berries or mushrooms. Respondents displayed a stronger intention to study plants and animals in high biodiversity settings and the intention to exercise was stronger in low biodiversity settings. Implications for future land use planning and forest management are discussed.

In this study we use two approaches to consider whether agricultural landscapes are preferred as a destination for recreation (day trips and rural tourism (overnight trips. We first analyse the choice of recreation site type based on a model that aggregates sites using the presence of agricultural land as an aggregation variable. Population survey data on recreation trips reveal an association between the respondent’s living environment, recreational activities and visit characteristics and the probability of choosing a destination with agricultural land. Second, we also estimate the demand functions for trips to agricultural sites and other destination types to consider whether the presence of agricultural land, as opposed to other land use categories, increases the number of trips and the benefits of recreation. The results suggest that agricultural landscapes are inferior to alternative site types in terms of per-trip benefits. However, agricultural landscapes are associated with high annual benefits because of the high rate of visitation.;
