    Based on data aquired in 13 orbits of Hubble Space Telescope time, we present a detailed evolutionary history of the M31 dSph satellite Andromeda XVI, including its lifetime star formation history (SFH), the spatial distribution of its stellar populations, and the properties of its variable stars. And XVI is characterized by prolonged star formation activity from the oldest epochs until star formation was quenched ∼6 Gyr ago, and, notably, only half of the mass in stars of And XVI was in place 10 Gyr ago. And XVI appears to be a low-mass galaxy for which the early quenching by either reionization or starburst feedback seems highly unlikely, and thus it is most likely due to an environmental effect (e.g., an interaction), possibly connected to a late infall in the densest regions of the Local Group. Studying the SFH as a function of galactocentric radius, we detect a mild gradient in the SFH: the star formation activity between 6 and 8 Gyr ago is significantly stronger in the central regions than in the external regions, although the quenching age appears to be the same, within 1 Gyr. We also report the discovery of nine RR Lyrae (RRL) stars, eight of which belong to And XVI. The RRL stars allow a new estimate of the distance, (m − M){sub 0} = 23.72 ± 0.09 mag, which is marginally larger than previous estimates based on the tip of the red giant branch.

    Extragalactic planetary nebulae (PNe) are not only useful as distance signposts or as tracers of the dark matter content of their host galaxies, but constitute also good indicators of the main properties of their parent stellar populations. Yet, so far, the properties of PNe in the optical regions of galaxies where stellar population gradients can be more extreme have remained largely unexplored, mainly because the detection of PNe with narrow-band imaging or slitless spectroscopy is considerably hampered by the presence of a strong stellar background. Integral field spectroscopy (IFS) can overcome this limitation, and here we present a study of the PN population in the nearby compact elliptical M32. Using SAURON data taken with just two 10-min-long pointings we have doubled the number of known PNe within the effective radius of M32, detecting PNe five times fainter than previously found in narrow-band images that collected nearly the same number of photons. We have carefully assessed the incompleteness limit of our survey, and accounting for it across the entire range of luminosity values spanned by our detected PNe, we could conclude despite having at our disposal only 15 sources that the central PNe population of M32 is consistent with the generally adopted shape for the PNe Luminosity Function and its typical normalization observed in early-type galaxies. Furthermore, owing to the proximity of M32 and to ultraviolet images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, we could identify the most likely candidates for the central star of a subset of our detected PNe and conclude that these stars are affected by substantial amounts of circumstellar dust extinction, a finding that could reconcile the intriguing discrepancy previously reported in M32 between the model predictions and the observations for the later stages of stellar evolution. Considering the modest time investment on a 4-m-class telescope that delivered these results, this study illustrates the potential

    2014-10-01

    This volume of the proceedings ''Symmetries in Science XVI'' is dedicated to the memory of Miguel Lorente and Allan Solomon who both participated several times in these Symposia. We lost not only two great scientists and colleagues, but also two wonderful persons of high esteem whom we will always remember. Dieter Schuch, Michael Ramek There is a German saying ''all good things come in threes'' and ''Symmetries in Science XVI'', convened July 20-26, 2013 at the Mehrerau Monastery, was our third in the sequel of these symposia since taking it over from founder Bruno Gruber who instigated it in 1988 (then in Lochau). Not only the time seemed to have been perfect (one week of beautiful sunshine), but also the medley of participants could hardly have been better. This time, 34 scientists from 16 countries (more than half outside the European Union) came together to report and discuss their latest results in various fields of science, all related to symmetries. The now customary grouping of renowned experts and talented newcomers was very rewarding and stimulating for all. The informal, yet intense, discussions at ''Gasthof Lamm'' occurred (progressively later) each evening till well after midnight and finally till almost daybreak! However, prior to the opening ceremony and during the conference, respectively, we were informed that Miguel Lorente and Allan Solomon had recently passed away. Both attended the SIS Symposia several times and had many friends among present and former participants. Professor Peter Kramer, himself a long-standing participant and whose 80th birthday commemoration prevented him from attending SIS XVI, kindly agreed to write the obituary for Miguel Lorente. Professors Richard Kerner and Carol Penson (both also former attendees) penned, at very short notice, the tribute to Allan Solomon. The obituaries are included in these Proceedings and further tributes have been posted to our conference website. In 28 lectures and an evening poster

    Full Text Available Alonso de Molina’s Vocabulary is the main historical source followed by the author of this article in order to understand the Nahua agriculture at the end of the XVI century. There are also other historical sources utilized by Alba González to compare the information about types of soils, climate, vegetation, agricultural technicques and the technology associated with it and about irrigation. The article has a broad information about agricultural managements and the uses of plants -mainly corn- utilized in the agricultural labour, which was basic in the life of the Nahuas in Central Mexico. It has several tables with the data obtained from the historical sources which permit to understand the richness of this economic activity. This article is important for agricultural, ecological and historical studies and the information it presents is valuable.

Representan la Lapidación de San Esteban, San Julián y Santa Basilisa haciendo la limosna y santo obispo bendiciendo los campos. Sus dimensiones aproximadamente iguales hacen pensar que las tres tablas formaron parte de un retablo. Tanto por su iconografía como por su colorido manierista pueden considerarse como pinturas propias de la Contrarreforma de hacia 1590, lo que se hace evidente en la Lapidación de San Esteban que copia una estampa grabada de Ecclesiae Militantes Triunphi (Roma, 1585 que recoge la iconografía jesuítica de la Contrarreforma dedicada a los primeros mártires del cristianismo a los que se relaciona con la doctrina teológica del Concilio de Trento.

    2007-09-01

    In this special issue of CAMOP/Physica Scripta we would like to present a picture of the state-of-the-art in the field of the dynamics of molecular systems. It contains a collection of papers submitted in association with the most recent MOLEC meeting (MOLEC XVI), which was held in September 2006 in Levico Terme (Italy) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the MOLEC conference series. The series of biennial European Conferences on the Dynamics of Molecular Systems (MOLEC) started in 1976, when the first meeting was held in Trento (Italy). Successive conferences were organized in Brandbjerg Højskole (Denmark, 1978), Oxford (UK, 1980), Nijmegen (The Netherlands, 1982), Jerusalem (Israel, 1984), Aussois (France, 1986), Assisi (Italy, 1988), Bernkastel-Kues (Germany, 1990), Prague (Czech Republic, 1992), Salamanca (Spain, 1994), Nyborg Strand (Denmark, 1996), Bristol (UK, 1998), Jerusalem (Israel, 2000), Istanbul (Turkey, 2002) and Nunspeet (The Netherlands, 2004). This is the second time that Physica Scripta has hosted a special issue dedicated to MOLEC. The previous issue ( Physica Scripta (2006) 73 C1-C89) was edited by Steven Stolte and Harold Linnartz following the MOLEC 2004 conference. Following the philosophy of CAMOP, we have asked invited speakers to summarize important problems in their research area, with the objective of setting forth the current thinking of leading researchers in atomic, molecular and optical physics. This comprises discussions of open questions, important new applications, new theoretical and experimental approaches and also predictions of where the field is heading. In addition to being authoritative contributions of acknowledged experts, we hope that the papers also appeal to non-specialists as each work contains a clear and broad introduction and references to the accessible literature. The present special issue comprises 17 papers, which are arranged according to the following topics: theoretical and experimental studies of

    The composition of inks in a group of 24 drawings of ten XVI century Italian painters, has been determined by PIXE at the external micro-beam line of the Centro de Micro Analisis de Materiales of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. Ink elemental thicknesses have been determined by comparison with a set of certified thin standards. A comprehensive comparison of inks has also been performed by renormalisation of spectra and definition of an ink-to-ink distance. The elemental compositions and the ink-to-ink distances give consistent results that are generally in line with the appearance of the drawings and add relevant instrumental information to the stylistic observation, revealing for example the presence of retouches and additions in different parts of a drawing. Cluster analysis performed on a subgroup of 13 artefacts from the Genoese painter Luca Cambiaso and his school has revealed a partition that separates neatly the work of the master from that of his followers.

  7. Unilateral NMR study of a XVI century wall painted

    2007-06-01

    Wall paintings in the XVI century Serra Chapel in the "Chiesa di Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore" Rome, have been studied using unilateral NMR. In order to map the distribution of moisture content in the wall painted, a large number of Hahn echo measurements, covering large areas of the wall painting were performed. Because the intensity of the Hahn echo is proportional to the amount of moisture in the area under study, the experimental data were transformed into 2D gradient colour maps which allowed an easy visualization of the moisture content of the wall. The state of conservation of the wall painting was monitored using T2 measurements specially with regards to outcropping salt.

    Full Text Available The resurrection of Jesus according to Jozef Ratzinger/Benedictus XVI. As a follow-up to my earlier article in HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies (‘The Pope’s Jesus book and the Christologies of the gospels’ [2011], this contribution concerning the Jesus trilogy by Jozef Ratzinger will discuss the idea he presents of Jesus’ resurrection and how his view should be assessed from the perspective of the current state of affairs in biblical scholarship. In addition, this article articulates a number of proposals that can take the discussion a step further. In that context, the following questions are dealt with: What is meant when we speak about the body of the risen Jesus? Are there – except for terms like ‘to raise from the dead’ or ‘to rise up’ – other formulas used in the New Testament to describe the fundamental reversal after Jesus’ death? Can Ratzinger’s biased focus upon the concept of ‘resurrection’ be expanded on the basis of other Old Testament models of thought or faith paradigms that can help us to understand that Jesus, through the agency of God, has come to share in a life that is no longer limited by death? What factors played a role in the origin of the belief in Jesus’ resurrection? This article shows that Ratzinger too strongly emphasises continuity between the historical Jesus and a number of New Testament Christologies and the way in which they were crystallised in later ecclesiastical dogmatic formulations.

    Geostationary satellites are unique among orbital spacecraft in that they experience no appreciable atmospheric drag. After concluding their respective missions, geostationary spacecraft remain in orbit virtually in perpetuity. As such, they represent some of human civilization's longest lasting artifacts. With this in mind, the EchoStar XVI satellite, to be launched in fall 2012, will play host to a time capsule intended as a message for the deep future. Inspired in part by the Pioneer Plaque and Voyager Golden Records, the EchoStar XVI Artifact is a pair of gold-plated aluminum jackets housing a small silicon disk containing 100 photographs. The Cover Etching, the subject of this paper, is etched onto one of the two jackets. It is a temporal map consisting of a star chart, pulsar timings, and other information describing the epoch from which EchoStar XVI came. The pulsar sample consists of 13 rapidly rotating objects, 5 of which are especially stable, having spin periods <10 ms and extremely small spin-down rates. In this paper, we discuss our approach to the time map etched onto the cover and the scientific data shown on it, and we speculate on the uses that future scientists may have for its data. The other portions of the EchoStar XVI Artifact will be discussed elsewhere.

    Full Text Available The Bible in the culture of Polish-Lithuanian Rus’ in the sixteenth century Beginning in the mid-fourteenth century, the East Slavic citizens of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (“Ruthenians,” the “Rutheni” took active part in a process of multicultural inte­gration. The increase of interests in the biblical text that took place in Europe in that period was not without influence on Ruthenians – both those who remained Orthodox and those who became followers of the Reformation. The article discusses two outstanding figures: Matvej Ioannovič Desjatyj (the biblical codex of Vilnius and Supraśl, 1502–1507 and Francisk Skorina (Prague edi­tion of 23 Books of the Slavonic Bible – Bivlija ruska of 1517–1520, the Vilnius edition of Malaja podorožnaja knižka – The little traveller’s book, 1522, and the Apostolos of 1525. The article also examines how the circle of the Ostroh Academy approached the task of preparing a print edition of the Slavonic Bible (1580–1581 and investigates the viewpoint of those who were influenced by Reformation ideas as well as that of those promoting the usage of prosta/rus’ka mova. This biblical production, which is only a part of the literary activity undertaken in Rus’, testifies to the high level of Ruthenian culture in the Polish-Lithuanian state and shows how Ruthenians were able to match their traditional spirituality with the philologia sacra of the Renaissance.   Biblia w kulturze Rusi polsko-litewskiej w XVI wieku Od połowy XIV wieku wschodniosłowiańscy obywatele Rusi polsko-litewskiej brali czynny udział w procesie wielokulturowej integracji.

    resulted in crop damage and famine. From the XIV century the little Ice Age began. Year average temperature becomes lower by 1.4°C and summer temperature - by 2-3°C. In the XIV century the chronicles mentioned a total of 100 extreme natural phenomena, as a result of which Russia experienced more than 37 years of famine. The climate was particularly variable in late XIV - early XV century and XVI - XVII centuries, when there were years of particularly cold winters and increased humidity (due to winter precipitation). The duration of the crop growing season was reduced by three weeks. At the beginning of the XVII century spruce became dominant in the spruce-deciduous forests and co-dominant in deciduous forests. There was a transfer of settlements and agricultural land to interfluve areas and higher river valleys. The determining factors were demographic, socio-economic and historical factors, but the role of natural factors cannot be overlooked. The end of the XVI century was marked by the most severe political and economic crisis in the Russian State (oprichnina (political and administrative apparatus established by Ivan IV) and Livonian Wars by Ivan IV), which, combined with deteriorating environmental conditions (increased humidity of the climate, the average annual temperature drop) caused massive desolation of the lands. Many hundreds of villages turned into wasteland. In this period the Moscow land was reported as a "wild desert, covered with shrubs, bogs and imbanks", there were also memories of the past navigation on small rivers, data on mills on the streams. The climate deterioration caused the agrarian revolution in Russia in XIV-XVI centuries. Slash-and-burn and shifting cultivation was replaced by plow farming system (two- and three-field), which was more adapted to the harsh climatic conditions.

    We present the first comparison between the lifetime star formation histories (SFHs) of M31 and Milky Way (MW) satellites. Using the Advanced Camera for Surveys on board the Hubble Space Telescope, we obtained deep optical imaging of Andromeda II (And II; M{sub V} = –12.0; log(M {sub *}/M {sub ☉}) ∼ 6.7) and Andromeda XVI (And XVI; M{sub V} = –7.5; log(M {sub *}/M {sub ☉}) ∼ 4.9) yielding color-magnitude diagrams that extend at least 1 mag below the oldest main-sequence turnoff, and are similar in quality to those available for the MW companions. And II and And XVI show strikingly similar SFHs: both formed 50%-70% of their total stellar mass between 12.5 and 5 Gyr ago (z ∼ 5-0.5) and both were abruptly quenched ∼5 Gyr ago (z ∼ 0.5). The predominance of intermediate age populations in And XVI makes it qualitatively different from faint companions of the MW and clearly not a pre-reionization fossil. Neither And II nor And XVI appears to have a clear analog among MW companions, and the degree of similarity in the SFHs of And II and And XVI is not seen among comparably faint-luminous pairs of MW satellites. These findings provide hints that satellite galaxy evolution may vary substantially among hosts of similar stellar mass. Although comparably deep observations of more M31 satellites are needed to further explore this hypothesis, our results underline the need for caution when interpreting satellite galaxies of an individual system in a broader cosmological context.

    Full Text Available During most of the 16th century, the town of Pontevedra was recorder as the most dynamic urban centre of the Galician kingdom for its economy based on fishing and sea trade. In contrast with the traditional view which has always regarded the seamen from Rias Baixas as coastal fishermen, Pontevedra's historical legal documents from the Sisteenth Century provide evidence of their presence in Newfoundland and the Canary Island fishing grounds. In the light of this evidence, those seamen appear as faithful continuers of a tradition of seafaring relationships with foreign countries dating back to the late Middle Ages.

    Durante buena parte del siglo XVI la villa de Pontevedra aparece como el mayor y más dinámico núcleo urbano del Reino de Galicia, con una economía asentada en la pesca y el comercio marítimo. Frente a la visión tradicional, que considera a los hombres del mar de las Rías Baixas gallegas como pescadores de bajura, la documentación notarial pontevedresa del siglo XVI informa de su presencia tanto en Terranova como en el banco de pesca canario. De esta forma se muestran fíeles continuadores de una vocación de relación con el exterior por vía marítima presente desde la Baja Edad Media.

Unlike other studies that examines the price of basic consumer goods in official price books, in this study free market conditions prices of goods and services are evaluated. For that purpose, 13 thousand Sharia Court Record of 8 Court Registers of Aleppo revised and the revised rates were determined using data from actual sales transactions. The lowest prices and high quantities of examined sales transaction and the course of the mean was determined. In order to make the study more meaningful the prices were compared and tried to determine the value and purchasing power.In XVI century, on average, for a slave 58 gold, for a mahr 65 gold and for a house 95 gold were being paid. How many years a worker had to work to save money of mahr? How many cows or goats, a farmer had to sell to save the money of mahr or how many years had to work a foundation officer to go on pilgrimage? Answers of these and similar questions tried to be found by comparing the prices of goods and services of the period have been studied. Also using the data for the first half of the 19th century -300 years after the Ottomans arrival to Aleppo - the Ottoman Aleppo Sharia Court, the changes in mahr and house prices were discussed. The amount of mahr which deemed an assurance for the women at the end of 300 years of Ottoman is a point of interest.

    Full Text Available At the end of the XV century and at the beginning of the XVI century one of the most powerful strongholds in Europe, the Kremlin, was built in Moscow. This building was made thanks to the engineering, architectonic and mechanical genius of the Italian masters who had come to Russia by request of the Great Prince Ivan the Third. The Italian architects were able to combine the Russian architectural style with the style of the Italian Renaissance, applying the new technologies and using state-of-the-art tools. This article deals with the all the works carried out by the Italian masters in the area of Moscow and with the building techniques that they introduced in the Russian capital.

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta un tipo de violencia familiar protagonizado por madres e hijas navarras de los siglos XVI y XVII. Las acu-saciones por lenocinio o alcahuetería contra las madres que emplearon a sus propias hijas en sus tratos de mediadoras sirven para ilustrar una forma de violencia que supone, entre otras cosas, una ruptura del amor materno. La preca-ria situación de la madre y las dificultades tras el fallecimiento del esposo —la gran parte de los casos están protagonizados por madres viu-das— fue el contexto general en el que se desarrollaron los malos tratos. La historia de estas mujeres representa un mal ejercicio de la autoridad materna y una forma de violencia hacia las hijas; una violencia no siempre física, pero sí emocional y psicológica.

Es un intento de encontrar unidad a algunas investigaciones dispersas que se van publicando sobre el tema. Los cartularios que existen de algunas universidades extranjeras son insuficientes y los libros de registros de estudiantes o de grados no nos han llegado apenas desde las alturas de aquellos siglos xn-xvi. Sin embargo una intensa indagación en los archivos municipales y catedralicios podría arrojar, para este caso, los datos suficientes.

    Full Text Available De sobra es conocido que los Libros de Oro, que aparecen en el siglo XVI en el marco de la renovación pedagógica que introdujo el Humanismo y el Renacimiento, son colecciones de pensamientos, sentencias, máximas y proverbios morales entresacados de las obras de los mejores filósofos estoicos de la Antigüedad Clásica. Sin embargo, poco más es lo que se conoce de ellos fuera del marco de la Historia de la Literatura. Incidentalmente, al ocuparse de la preceptiva de príncipes, algo se ha dicho sobre los textos áureos de la vida, si bien de forma tangencial. Consciente de esta laguna historiográfica voy a redactar las siguientes notas críticas, que no tienen otro objeto más que colaborar en el debate que historiadores, filósofos, pedagogos y literatos han de sostener sobre el tema. Nuestro país aportó al pensamiento educativo del siglo xvi dos figuras señeras: Luis Vives y Pedro Simón Abril. Pero su obra quedó en el plano teórico por cuanto carecieron de capacidad u oportunidad política para implantar sus doctrinas en la sociedad española. Alguna posibilidad tuvo el segundo de los autores citados, pero las mismas se quedaron en forma de memoriales o apuntamientos dirigidos al Rey Felipe II.

    Full Text Available Bien que la Révolution française ait suscité l’intérêt des chercheurs du monde entier, Louis xvi fait figure de parent pauvre des études universitaires. Même si c’est à son corps défendant, il en est tout de même l’un des principaux protagonistes et la Révolution s’est aussi construite en interrogeant le rôle et la place du roi. Cette situation a eu pour conséquence de conserver vivace la légende dorée que le roi s’est construite en exerçant un contrôle sur son image dès le début de son règne. Elle l’assimile à un nouvel Henri iv, profondément concerné par les maux de ses sujets. Malgré les attaques de la Révolution, cette image continue à exercer une influence considérable sur les biographes de Louis xvi et les historiens de la Révolution.Si la Restauration en a fait un usage sans surprise, elle a, de manière plus étonnante, séduit jusqu’à Jaurès avant de souffrir du discrédit dans lequel sombre le royalisme en choisissant l’antisémitisme au xxe siècle. Néanmoins, c’est aujourd’hui par le détour de l’historiographie anglo-saxonne qu’elle fait sa réapparition et commence seulement à être questionnée.Although the French Revolution has aroused interest of international researchers, Louis xvi is widely neglected by the academic studies. Even if reluctantly, he is yet one of the main protagonists and it is also by questioning the role and the place of the king that the Revolution took its shape.This led to the consequence that the golden legend the king constructed by controlling his image from the beginning of his reign is still very lively today. In it, he is presented as a new Henri iv, deeply concerned by the misfortunes of his subjects. In spite of the attacks of the Revolution, this image still considerably influences Louis xvi’s biographers and the historians of the Revolution.If the Restoration made a not surprising good use of it, it more astonishingly seduced Jaur

    El objetivo de este trabajo es lograr una aproximación al clima y a los fenómenos de glaciación ocurridos en el Estrecho de Magallanes durante el siglo XVI y parte del XVII a través de registros históricos. Se complementan los resultados obtenidos por investigadores de otras disciplinas paleoclimáticas en el área, verificándose si las fuentes históricas corroboran las conclusiones de esos autores, quienes postulan un intervalo muy frío entre 1520 y 1670. Para realizar esta investigación se utilizaron los “diarios o relaciones de navegación” de los primeros marinos españoles que pasaron por el Estrecho, recopilados en su mayor parte en Archivos históricos españoles. A través de la técnica del análisis de contenido se verificó la estabilidad en el vocabulario referido al clima y los glaciares a lo largo de esas centurias y se calificó los eventos de acuerdo a su magnitud. Se determinaron diversas categorías de las cuales se han seleccionado precipitaciones sólidas y líquidas, temperatura, dirección del viento y ocurrencia de tormentas para analizar en este trabajo. Se estudió especialmente la presencia de témpanos en el Estrecho y las descripciones de los glaciares fueguinos y del sur de la Patagonia chilena como indicadores de bajas temperaturas. Se concluye que existen referencias directas a la presencia de témpanos proveniente de glaciares en el Estrecho, sólo en la segunda mitad del siglo XVI. El avance de los hielos supondría una acentuación de las condiciones de frío durante esa centuria, lo que puede ser corroborado por los datos de los navíos que consignan temperaturas estivales frías y muy frías en la vertiente pacífica. Estos datos coincidirían con los resultados de R. Villalba en cuanto a que el intervalo 1520 a 1670 fue uno de los más fríos de la Pequeña Edad Glaciar.

  13. The beginnings of education of the deaf persons: Renaissance Europe (XIV-XVI century

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to indicate a turnover of the society towards deaf persons which was brought by the historic Renaissance period, from the XIV to XVI century. It is well known fact that handicapped persons were marginalized in the Middle Ages by the broader social community and that charitable care within churches and monasteries was considered to be the only legitimate form of help to those who were designated by God to expiate the sins of their ancestors. The weakening of the church authority and the improvement of science in the XV century lead to increased interest in medicine, that has also reflected on the attitudes of experts towards deaf people who started to be more actively interested in them. The Renaissance has begotten the first teachers of the deaf, as well as the first deaf artists who have been recognized and revered by society, and that had a crucial impact on the change of comprehension of deafness and attitudes towards the possibilities of the deaf. All this contributed to laying the foundations for more organized work with the deaf, which has occurred in Europe in the XVIII century.

Las universidades, convertidas en instituciones puestas al servicio de la expresión del poder, encontraron a partir de entonces y a lo largo de todo el siglo xvi, un gran auge. Esta circunstancia se produce una vez que se toma conciencia desde el poder del valor que posee la educación como instrumento de acción política a partir del cual poder asegurar, como ha señalado J.A.

    Full Text Available El trabajo se propone describir con cierto detalle el modo en que un texto ejemplar de la Edad Medía castellana "trabaja" ideológicamente. Para ello se analiza el capítulo XVI del Calda e Dimna, traducción alfonsí del árabe Kalila wa Dimna realizada entre 1251 y 1261, poniendo de relieve el tipo de subjetividad que el texto propone a su público para que, una vez asumido, pueda leerse el texto y situarse en el mundo. Al mismo tiempo, utilizando el cuadrado semiótico según la reformulación de Jameson, se despliega el haz de relaciones significativas que conforman el texto como dispositivo ideológico. La peculiar ubicación de la nobleza y de la naciente burguesía en el orden social diseñado por el texto, junto con la promoción de la figura regia por encima de la estructura estamental, revelan la filiación estrictamente alfonsí del sustento ideológico del Calila e Dimna.

Uno de los principales pilares que ayudan a sostener la estabilidad del sistema internacional es la educación, entendida, por un lado, como un proceso por el cual se van adquiriendo conocimientos y destrezas para el desempeño de las funciones propias en el mercado laboral, y también, por otro lado, como un proceso de asimilación, por parte de las nuevas generaciones, de unos valores y de unos criterios que les ayuden a la construcción de un orden social más justo y, por ende, más estable.

    To analyse the dental remains of an individual with signs of congenital syphilis by using macroscopic observation, CBCT and micro-CT images, and the analysis of the enamel thickness. Anthropological analysis of human skeletal remains from the 16th century archaeological site Park Grič in Zagreb, Croatia discovered a female, 17-20 years old at the time of death, with dental signs supportive of congenital syphilis: mulberry molars and canine defects, as well as non-specific hypoplastic changes on incisors. The focus of the analysis was on three aspects: gross morphology, hypoplastic defects of the molars, canines and incisors, as well as enamel thickness of the upper first and second molars. The observed morphology of the first molars corresponds to the typical aspect of mulberry molars, while that of the canines is characterised by hypomineralisation. Hypoplastic grooves were observed on the incisal edges of all incisors. The enamel of the first molars is underdeveloped while in the second molars a thick-enamelled condition is observed. Our observations for the dental and skeletal evidence are supportive to a diagnosis of congenital syphilis for this specimen from XVI century Croatia. The use of CT imaging helped documenting the diagnostic features and quantifying the effect of the dental stigmata on first molars. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available Comparar los moriscos con los indígenas americanos es un tema que se repite en la obra de Francisco de Vitoria. Este ensayo se centra en dos procesos inquisitoriales (ambos de mediados del s. XVI para explorar uno de los intereses transatlánticos de Vitoria: la relación entre conversión e iconoclasia. El primer proceso se desarrolla en el pueblo de Yanhuitlán, en Nueva España; el segundo, en la ciudad de Valencia, en los reinos de Aragón. Ambos procesos hablan de "ruinas nuevas"-es decir, ruinas recientes producidas a causa de la violencia iconoclasta cristiana. En el caso de Yanhuitlán, de las ruinas de un recinto sagrado indígena. En el caso de Valencia, de las ruinas de una mezquita. Este ensayo explora el significado de estas ruinas, y del concepto de ruina en general, desde los puntos de vista ofrecidos por las tradiciones católica, musulmana, e indígena. Estas tradiciones tenían visiones distintas de lo que era una ruina y, por ello, la iconoclasia cristiana tuvo consecuencias inesperadas, tanto en Valencia como en Nueva España.

En el caso específico de Tzintzuntzan se ha dudado si en realidad este proceso se llevó a cabo, pues no se ha encontrado el acta de su congregación. Después de analizar distintos manuscritos coloniales, crónicas, estudios previos, tradición oral, así como la traza urbana de la ciudad, se deduce que Tzintzuntzan tuvo al menos dos momentos de reorganización urbano-social. El primero que se llevó a cabo en la década de 1530 con la reubicación del convento y una parte de la población que estaba asentada en las laderas del cerro Tariácuri. El segundo debió llevarse a cabo a finales del siglo xvi o principios del xvii, con el traslado de varios de sus barrios sujetos hacia la cabecera.

    We have performed large-scale CIV3 calculations of excitation energies from ground state for 69 fine-structure levels as well as of oscillator strengths and radiative decay rates for all electric-dipole-allowed and intercombination transitions among the fine-structure levels of the terms belonging to the (1s22s22p6)3s23p2, 3s3p3, 3p4, 3s23p3d, 3s23p4s, 3s23p4p, 3s23p4d, and 3s23p4f configurations of Cu XVI. These states are represented by very extensive configuration-interaction (CI) wave functions obtained with the computer code CIV3 of Hibbert. The important relativistic effects in intermediate coupling are incorporated by means of the Breit-Pauli Hamiltonian. Small adjustments to the diagonal elements of the Hamiltonian matrices have been made so that the energy splittings are as close as possible to the energy values of those from the National Institute for Standards and Technology. The mixing among several fine-structure levels is found to be very strong. From our radiative decay rates we have also calculated radiative lifetimes of the fine-structure levels. Our calculated lifetime for the high spin level 3s3p3(5S2) is found to be in excellent agreement with the experimental value of Trabert et al (1988 J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 5 2173). In this calculation, we also predict new data for several fine-structure levels where no other theoretical and/or experimental results are available. ).

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: El negro, como libre o como esclavo, fue un componente más de la sociedad española del siglo XVI. Como miembro de la misma estuvo sometido al control de las instituciones religiosas y políticas y, si era esclavo, fue un simple objeto de la voluntad de sus dueños. La Inquisición también le persiguió, y aunque éste no tenía una personalidad jurídica definida, fue considerado como persona con una formación religiosa adecuada y, por eso, juzgado por los responsables inquisitoriales. Hacemos aquí una primera aproximación en esta peculiar relación e insistimos en que los procesos inquisitoriales son también una fuente útil para estudiar ciertos aspectos y circunstancias de la vida del negro en aquella época.ABSTRACT: The Negro, as a free man or as slave, was an additional component in Spanish society during the 16th century. As member of this society he was subjected to the control of the political and religious institutions and if he was a slave, he was simply at the disposal of his master's will. The Inquisition also persecuted him and although he didn't have an officially recognized status, he was considered to be as person with a suitable religious grounding and was therefore judged accordingly by those in charge of the Inquisition. Here we approach this peculiar relationship for the first time and we emphasize that the inquisitorial trials are also an useful source enabling us to study certain aspects and circumstances in the Negro's life at that time.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the importance of cocoa in the Alcaldía Mayor of Sonsonate, particularly in the Izalco region, during the last pre-Columbian period and also its exploitation during the XVIth century. It is demonstrated that, during the first half of these century, despite of the development of the encomienda system, the natives significantly controlled the production and exchange of cocoa, and also the property of the land. Nevertheless, during the second half of this century, the increase of cocoa production induced serious perturbations in the Indian communities because of the demographic collapse, the usurpation of the lands and the ladinoization processes.

    Este estudio analiza la importancia del cacao en la Alcaldía Mayor de Sonsonate, especialmente en la región de los Izalcos, durante el último periodo prehispánico así como su explotación en el XVI. Se demuestra que, durante la primera mitad de este siglo, a pesar del desarrollo de la encomienda, la población indígena controló, en buena medida, la producción y el intercambio del cacao, así como la propiedad de la tierra. También se pone de manifiesto que, a partir de la segunda mitad de este mismo siglo, el incremento de la producción cacaotera provocó daños irreversibles en las comunidades indígenas debido al más que notable descenso demográfico, a la usurpación de sus tierras y a los procesos de ladinización.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: La victoria de la Casa de Habsburgo en las guerras de Italia (1494-1559 abrió un periodo de paz y seguridad en Italia. En el pasado, fueron muchos los historiadores que dibujaron un panorama sombrío de este periodo, que abarcó los siglos XVI al XVIII. Fueron dos siglos descritos como un tiempo oscuro que sucedió a la brillantez del Renacimiento. Despotismo, Contrarreforma e intolerancia reemplazaron a la libertad, reformismo y tolerancia preexistentes. Su responsable fue la dominación española. Hoy, esa vieja interpretación está siendo revisada por una nueva generación de historiadores que describen el periodo en otros términos. El dominio español es contemplado como un condominio, un dominio dual o coparticipado entre la Corte española y las Cortes italianas o, mejor dicho, entre las élites españolas e italianas. Esta perspectiva explica el sistema español tanto para comprender su éxito como su hundimiento.ABSTRACT: The victory of the Habsburg Army in the Italian Wars (1494-1559 opened a time of peace and security in Italy. Many historians draw a negative panorama of this new period from sixteenth to early eighteenth centuries. So, these two centuries, were traditionally described as a Dark Age before the splendid time of the Renaissance. Despotism, Counterreformation and Intolerance replace Liberty, Reform and Tolerance. The Spanish dominion was responsible of this falling back. Today this old interpretation is revised by new generations of historians that describe the period in other terms. The Spanish dominion is sawn in a different way, as condominium, dual control or ownership between the Spanish Court and the Italian Courts, between Spanish and Italian elites. This point of view explains the Spanish System, his success and his breakdown.

  8. Acquamanili nella liturgia cristiana (IV-XVI secolo: il bronzo della Pinacoteca Nazionale di Cagliari

    Full Text Available Aquamaniles are tools that have a liturgical function in the Christian rite, the origins of which are likely to be linked to objects of profane use. This essay analyses the function and the types of the few examples that have survived to this day, dating from the eighth to the sixteenth century. These ornaments have a signifi cant position in the specialist historiography, having been considered by art historians to be “among the most artistic objects,” especially those produced in bronze. Bronze is the material used for the aquamanile in the shape of a peacock that is kept in the National Gallery in Cagliari. Subjecting this important object to historiographical and archival analysis, this study advances a formal comparison that suggests a chronological framework and a place of origin based on historical data.[it] Gli acquamanili sono degli utensili che hanno una funzione liturgica nel rito cristiano, le cui origini sono verosimilmente legate a oggetti di uso profano. Il saggio analizza la funzione e le tipologie dei pochi manufatti giunti ai giorni nostri, databili tra l’VIII e il XVI secolo. Queste suppellettili occupano una posizione particolare nella storiografi a specialistica, in quanto considerati dagli studiosi “tra gli oggetti più artistici”, principalmente nell’ambito dei bronzi. Di tale materiale è costituito l’acquamanile a forma di pavone musealizzato nella Pinacoteca Nazionale di Cagliari, per il quale si affronta un’analisi storiografica e d’archivio, si propongono dei confronti formali e si suggeriscono un inquadramento cronologico e un ambito di provenienza basato sui dati storici.

    La XVI exposición temporal del Museo de la Academia Nacional de Medicina a la Historia de la Enfermedad de Chagas en Colombia surge en razón a que este año de 2009 se cumplen los 100 años de la publicación de la investigación en la que el médico brasileño Carlos Chagas describiera las manifestaciones clínicas de la enfermedad, el hallazgo del parásito y el reconocimiento del vector.

    En la historia de la medicina, Chagas es peculiar por ser uno de los pocos, si no el único, investigador que ha descubierto el agente etiológico, el vector transmisor y las manifestaciones de la enfermedad. La enfermedad de Chagas es con el carate, la bartonelosis, la fi ebre de Tobia, la tungiasis y la mansonelosis ozzardi, entre otras, una de las pocas enfermedades autóctonas de América.

    Ella se ha encontrado en el continente americano muy al norte del trópico de Cáncer, hasta la latitud 42°N, la mitad sur de Estados Unidos; y muy al sur del trópico de Capricornio, hasta la latitud 40°S, la mitad norte de Argentina y de Chile. La distribución de este parasitismo supera con creces los límites de la región intertropical.

    A major debate is currently underway in the USA about whether there is, in fact, a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce shortage in the country or not. This is the subject of the Bayer Facts of Science Education XVI: US STEM Workforce Shortage—Myth or Reality? Fortune 1000 Talent Recruiters on the Debate. An ongoing public opinion research project commissioned by Bayer Corporation, the Bayer Facts surveys examine US STEM education, diversity and workforce issues. The 16th in the series, the newest survey asks talent recruiters at some of the country's largest employers—those included in the Fortune 1000—to weigh in on current and future demand for new hires with 2- and 4-year STEM degrees. As professionals responsible for scouting, recruiting and hiring talent at Fortune 1000 companies, both STEM and non-STEM alike, these individuals are on the frontlines, tasked with assessing and filling their companies' workforce needs. The survey asks the recruiters whether new hires with 2- and 4-year STEM degrees are as, more or less in demand than their peers without STEM degrees? Are more new STEM jobs being created at their companies than non-STEM jobs? Can they find adequate numbers of qualified candidates in a timely manner and how fierce is the competition for STEM degree holders? To answer these and other questions, the survey polled 150 talent recruiters at Fortune 1000 companies, both STEM and non-STEM alike. The survey also asks the recruiters about diversion in STEM, workforce diversity in the pipeline, the role of community colleges in developing the STEM pipeline and the desired skills and competencies of new hires.

    Full Text Available On peut dire que la Sierra et la Côte Nord restent inconnues pour la culture péruvienne. Les chroniqueurs et historiens des XVIe, XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles ont délaissé cette région, attirés par les monuments et les richesses fabuleuses du Cuzco. Cependant, s'il y a absence quasi totale de chroniques sur les Tallán, Mochica et Chimus, il est certain qu'il existe d'autres moyens pour connaître leurs cultures matérielles et spirituelles, tels que les 'visites' et autres documents. C'est ainsi que l'on arrive à découvrir aujourd'hui les peuples protohistoriques et historiques qui ont vécu dans ce qui est actuellement le département de Lambayeque, la province de Pacasmayo et la vallée du Chicama, siège du royaume inconnu des Mochica qui se développa entre les XIIIe et XVIIe siècles sous une forme très différente de la culture archéologique et préhistorique de Moche. On démontre ici que rattacher à la 'Culture Mochica' les créatures des superbes vases-portraits est aussi faux que de rattacher à la 'Culture Aymara' les fondateurs de Chavin. En effet, les Mochica formèrent une société protohistorique et historique dont l'origine remonte au début du XIIIe siècle et qui a persisté jusqu'au milieu du XVIIe siècle. C'est ainsi que nous publions pour la première fois la 'visite' à Jayanca en 1540, écrite par Sébastian de la Gama. La sierra y costa norte, etnohistóricamente se puede decir que es casi tierra incógnita en la cultura peruana. Los cronistas e historiadores de los siglos XVI, XVII y XVIII prácticamente las marginaron atraídos por las grandezas monumentales y riquezas fabulosas del Cuzco. Sin embargo, si bien hay ausencia casi total de crónicas sobre los Tallán, Mochica y Chimor, lo cierto es que existen otros instrumentos que permiten adentrarnos en sus culturas materiales y espirituales, como por ejemplo las visitas y otros documentos. Justo, gracias a ellos podemos descubrir hoy que los pueblos protohist

    Full Text Available ResumenEl sector al que correspondió el mayor protagonismo dentro de la industria europea moderna fue, sin lugar a dudas, el textil. Ello no representaba, en realidad, novedad alguna, pues la industria medieval se desarrolló precisamente en función primordialmente de la fabricación de tejidos. El vestido, al tiempo que una necesidad inmediata, resulta expresión visual de distinción social, aún más que la decoración de la vivienda. Por ello la industria textil creció a expensas tanto de la necesidad como del lujo. Uno de los grandes cambios que se producen en este tipo de industria durante todo el siglo XV y se consolida en el XVI se centra en las relaciones de producción, en la utilización de mano de obra campesina y la consolidación del ciclo de producción artesano rural. La mano de obra rural comienza a trabajar por su cuenta o en dependencia del empresario-productor de la ciudad. Si bien, la profunda transformación de la industria textil tendrá lugar en el siglo XVIII, con la revolución industrial.La transformación de la industria textil del siglo XVI propició la expansión de una nueva figura en el ámbito mercantil, que se denomina mercader-empresario, y por tanto, del sistema doméstico de producción conocido como Verlagssystem. Este nuevo sistema implicará modificaciones de factores claves para el desarrollo de las futuras sociedades mercantiles como pueden ser: el capital, la utilización de la materia prima y su proceso de transformación, la formación de los costes de producción y comercialización, la obtención de beneficios y su distribución, la concentración del capital y la generación de rentes. En definitiva, la creación de una nueva clase social, la burguesía. Este trabajo se centra en la industria sedera de la ciudad de Toledo en el siglo XVI.AbstractThe textile sector, was the greater protagonist, without doubt, within the modern European industry. It did not represent, in fact, newness some

Los fueros y libertades de los distintos territorios impedían un ejercicio efectivo de la autoridad real y ello fue particularmente acusado en los casos del principado catalán y del reino aragonés. Por lo que a Aragón se refiere, el esquema de la modernidad podría resumirse del modo siguiente: frente a un siglo XVI en que el reino puso todo tipo de trabas al ejercicio de la autoridad real, en la centuria del seiscientos la monarquía había vencido cualquier resistencia y podía gobernar con la aquiescencia de la clase dirigente aragonesa.

Su cabildo mantenía un sistema basado en las enseñanzas bíblicas y la normativa conciliar. Existía así una relación directa entre la remuneración de los sacerdotes y su misión de culto. Esto permitió establecer un salario justo en función a la presencia de los beneficiados a los oficios divinos y a las horas canónicas. Además, el cabildo garantizaba la correcta ejecución de este sistema retributivo a través de importantes mecanismos de control, apuntando de forma rigurosa las ausencias o irregularidades en el culto, que eran penalizadas a cuenta de su asignación y repartidas entre los beneficiarios cumplidores.The purpose of this articte is to explore the system of remuneration to priest on the cathedral of Toledo in the XVI century. Its chapter kept a system based on the biblical preaching and the canons of the ecclesiastical councils. There was thus a plug between the remuneration of the priest and their mission of cult to God. The belief system was a key factor to set an exact salary that was based on the presence of prebendaries at the divine offices and the canonical hours. Furthermore, the chapter kept an effective control system to report about the absences or irregular behaviour in the cult that were penalized. Then, on based to this information, it was set the salary. The fines were distributed to the prebenderies that fulfilled their obligations.

The purpose of the article is to characterize the structure of the provincial administration of the Ottoman Empire in the XVI century on the ground of the sultans’ kanunname. The administrative divisions of the Ottoman Empire has been studied in the article: the largest ottoman provinces - eyalets were divided into two types: timarli, in which the system of sanjaks, ottoman law, timar system were established; and salyaneli, where timar system was absent, all taxes were gathered and distributed to local needs; the second administrative-military territorial units were sanjaks, the subdivisions of sanjak were kazas and kadiluks, then – nahiyes. Moreover, outside this system there were various types of vassal and tributary states. The governance of such large territory, control over the execution of orders, establishment of relations between different groups of multi-ethnic population of the empire, which lived mostly not in the metropolitan area, but in the provinces, needed the constant functioning of local authorities. The main task of the provincial administration was to organize and to strengthen the communications between the province and the center. Special attention has been given to the description of the place and role, rights and duties of beylerbey, sanjakbey, qadi (judge, defterdar and other local managers at the system of the Ottoman provincial administration. In conclusion it is necessary to point out that the system of local authorities was formed by representatives of the military-administrative (sipahi-timarli, sanjakbey, beylerbey, the Grand Vizier, judicial (qadis (judges, kazaskers, sheikh-ul-Islam and financial (defterdars branches of the Ottoman government. Legal prohibitions and mutual cooperation supported sustainable balance between these executive power branches.

However, economic decline of the kingdom and raising municipal indebtedness during the seventeenth century led to reduce public intervention and support of local demand on the meat market. Readjustment of municipal politics gradually promoted the integration of the market in Aragón. This process continued during the eighteenth century and became firmly established during the final crisis of the "Ancien Régime".

    Full Text Available Os mercadores das cidades italianas, atraídos pela rota do Cabo inaugurada por Vasco da Gama, acabaram por ser os principais divulgadores da ação portuguesa no período dito das descobertas. Embora europeus e cristãos, os viajantes italianos na Ásia ao longo do século XVI utilizavam a rede cristã estabelecida pelos portugueses quando lhes convinha, mas não estavam vinculados a um projeto de conquista ou de dominação mais amplo. Nem descobridores, nem mediadores ou intermediários, esses viajantes, para finalidade deste artigo, oferecem uma visão "de fora" da presença portuguesa na Índia, apontam o apego dos portugueses pelo mar, seu desinteresse ou incapacidade de penetração no território e contribuem para a compreensão do império asiático-português como um império sitiado, constituído por enclaves no litoral, cercado de um lado pelo mar, de onde vinham as riquezas e também os principais inimigos - os holandeses no final do quinhentos - e por outro lado pelos reinos asiáticos.Italian merchants attracted by the Cape route opened by Vasco da Gama, were the most important reporters of the Portuguese action during the discovery period. In spite of being Europeens and Christians, the Italian travellers in Asia during the 16th century took advantage of the Christian network settled by Portuguese, but they were not involved with a project of conquest and domination. These travellers were not discoverers, or mediators or intermediaries, but they were able to see "from outside" the Portuguese presence in India, showing their abilities as sailors and their impossibility of intering the native territory. Their accounts contribute to the comprehension of the Portuguese Asian Empire as a sieged one, based on isolated points along the coast, constantly menaced by their most dagerous enemies, the Dutch and, on the other side, by Asian Kingdoms.

    1999-12-01

    Full Text Available During the 16th Century there was in New Spain a dispute over the indigenous government, i.e. whose right it was to govern the natives and what where the privileges derived therefrom. During the first half of the Century those who defended the right of the native nobles to rule their Indians as their own vassals were supported by Charles V; however when Philip II became King the partisans of the maintenance of the indigenous señorío declined. In this dispute the pre-existing indigenous structures played a determinant role, and so did the modifications introduced by the Spanish government, particularly the creation of the indigenous cabildo. This paper follows the present historiographical debate which discusses whether the cabildo substituted the rule of the native nobles, or whether the nobles 'rule was maintained in the framework of the cabildo.

    A lo largo del siglo XVI se desarrolló en la Nueva España una disputa sobre el gobierno indígena, en tomo a la disyuntiva de quién tenía derecho a gobernar a los naturales y qué derechos se derivaban de dicha jurisdicción. Durante la primera mitad del siglo XVI quienes defendieron el derecho de los señores naturales a gobernar a sus indios como vasallos propios encontraron apoyo en Carlos V; sin embargo, con el ascenso de Felipe II al trono los partidarios de la conservación del señorío indígena entrarían en un declivo político. En esta disputa jugaron un papel determinante tanto las estructuras indígenas preexistentes como los cambios realizados por el gobierno español, en particular la introducción del cabildo indígena. Este artículo se inscribe en el debate historio gráfico actualmente existente en tomo al dilema de si el cabildo sustituyó al gobierno de los señores naturales, o si hubo una permanencia de éstos dentro de la institución introducida por los españoles.

The authors come to the conclusion that, despite certain, dictated by objective reasons (first of all, the conditions for the emergence and subsequent development, there are more common features than the differences between the processes of the political and legal sphere development in Russia and Western Europe. The fact that this community escaped from the view of researchers is related, in the authors' opinion, to the fact that foreign observers, describing the political system of an early Russian state, dealt only with an outer shell, while its internal contents remained if not a secret, then, in any case, a mystery for them. They were not admitted to the Russian political cuisine, and therefore the details of Russian political and legal institution functioning remained unavailable to them.

    Full Text Available Este artículo explora algunas de las variables explicativas del territorio indígena del noroeste de la actual provincia de Córdoba partiendo de las fuentes coloniales tempranas (siglos XVI y XVII. Desde un enfoque etnohistórico, pero recuperando las investigaciones arqueológicas realizadas en la zona hasta el momento, se analiza la particular forma en que las sociedades indígenas accedieron a los recursos y delimitaron sus derechos a éstos. La necesidad de fijar espacios de exclusividad de unos grupos respecto de otros no anuló la posibilidad de la negociación y redefinición de los territorios. En este sentido, los caciques cumplieron un rol fundamental para el establecimiento de las alianzas y pactos intergrupales donde el intercambio de mujeres habría sido un aspecto central. La particular forma que adquiere el territorio indígena constituye un aspecto esencial para dar cuenta de las condiciones de posibilidad de reproducción social entre las poblaciones nativas en el período inmediatamente anterior a la conquista española.

Lo stesso anno, a Toledo, si pubblica la traduzione dello stesso testo, questa volta con il permesso dei traduttori. Di quest’ultima si faranno due riedizioni, la prima a Toledo nel 1549 e la seconda a Venezia nel 1553. La traduzione è opera di due traduttori: Diego López de Ayala, canonico della cattedrale di Toledo, che si occupa della traduzione del testo, e Diego de Salazar, che compone dei poemetti che servono come riassunto sia dell’argo- mento di ognuna delle questioni sia della soluzione finale. Entrambi i traduttori collaboreranno nuovamente nella traduzione dell’Arcadia di Sannazaro. Da ricerche precedenti si può stabilire come testo base della traduzione l’incunabolo veneto del Filocolo del 1472 (riedito nel 1481, 1488 e 1497. L’articolo confronta contrastivamente i due testi per individuare, in un primo momento, le differenti tecniche e strategie traduttologiche usate da López de Ayala. Scopo dello studio non è solo quello di descrivere queste tecniche, ma anche di metterle in rapporto con vari aspetti che riguardano la cultura editoriale e la situazione sociale della Spagna del XVI secolo, come il nuovo tipo di lettori, la censura letteraria – ragione per la quale, a nostro avviso, il traduttore modifica e manipola frammenti del testo – o la finalità ultima del testo che vede modificata la sua funzione testuale rispetto al testo d’origine. In effetti, la traduzione spagnola si avvicina piú a una specie di catalogo di casistica amorosa con intenzionalità didattica e moraleggiante, diversa dalla funzione di diletto del romanzo sentimentale di derivazione alessandrina scritto da Boccaccio. Prima di affrontare l’analisi della traduzione si offre un’introduzione in cui vengono contestualizzate la storia editoriale della Spagna del

    In this second paper of The role of Environment in shaping Low-mass Early-type Nearby galaxies (hELENa) series we study [Mg/Fe] abundance distribution trends of early-type galaxies observed with the SAURON integral field unit, spanning a wide range in mass and local environment densities: 20 low-mass early-types (dEs) of Sybilska et al. (2017) and 258 massive early types (ETGs) of the ATLAS3D project, all homogeneously reduced and analyzed. We show that the [Mg/Fe] ratios scale with velocity dispersion (σ) at fixed [Fe/H] and that they evolve with [Fe/H] along similar paths for all early-types, grouped in bins of increasing local and global σ, as well as the second velocity moment Vrms, indicating a common inside-out formation pattern. We then place our dEs on the [Mg/Fe] vs. [Fe/H] diagram of Local Group galaxies and show that dEs occupy the same region and show a similar trend line slope in the diagram as the high-metallicity stars of the Milky Way and the Large Magellanic Cloud. This finding extends the similar trend found for dwarf spheroidal vs. dwarf irregular galaxies and supports the notion that dEs have evolved from late-type galaxies that have lost their gas at a point of their evolution, which likely coincided with them entering denser environments.

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the humanist reception of St. Basil’s homily In illud: attende tibi ipsi up to 1532. In the XV cent., three new Latin translations were made in the circle of cardinal Bessarion: by Bessarion himself, by his protégé Athanasius Chalkeopulos, and by an anonymous author, probably Pietro Balbi. The translation of Franciscus Maturantius was published as a separate edition in 1522, and that of Rafaelle Maff ei appeared in the first Latin Opera of Basil in 1515. A review of these translations and of the dedicatory epistles shows that not only the humanistic program or theological views of Basil were of interest for the humanists. Attende tibi is valued as an example of biblical exegesis and because of its moral and ascetic content. Although, on the whole, reception centers in this period tend to distance from the Church, all our translators, except for one, are associated with the Roman Catholic Church. The comparison of the biblical «give heed to thyself» with the Delphic «know thyself», found in Maturantius’ dedicatory letter and in Maffei’s marginalia, aims at demonstrating the superiority of Christian wisdom, not at promoting the study of philosophy. Only two of the discussed translations were published, and a more or less large-scale dissemination of Basilius Latinus starts no earlier than in the 20s. of XVI cent., when the translation of Maff ei was reissued in Paris (1520 and 1523, Cologne (in 1523 and 1531 and Basel (1523.

Inúmeras imagens passaram a ser difundidas pelas obras literárias e relatos de viagens, incorporando-se ao imaginário europeu do século XVI. Dentre os temas mais abordados estão a antropofagia, a guerra, a não humanidade dos ameríndios, bem como a associação dos rituais religiosos indígenas com a adoração ao demônio. Os gravados que ilustram a obra Americae, publicada por Theodor De Bry, estão entre os principais responsáveis pela constituição destas representações no imaginário europeu. Nas crônicas, caciques e pajés aparecem constantemente como os responsáveis por fazer cumprir os desejos de lúcifer na terra e seriam culpados de conduzir os outros indígenas à perdição. A associação do indígena com o demônio está presente em muitas das gravuras do século XVI, como aquelas que ilustram a obra Americae, analisadas no presente artigo.

    Full Text Available The paper considers the use of infinitives and subjunctive forms as modal patterns of indirect speech attested in Russian Chronicles of the XI—XVI centuries. In early texts, an infinitive in a subordinate clause describes either a speech act that must be put into practice or a situation destined to happen. Subjunctive forms are used only in citations containing requests. The illocutionary power of reported speech is regularly marked with an illocutionary verb. In later chronicles, infinitive clauses and subjunctive forms begin to alternate in modal patterns of indirect speech containing official orders. However, the modal patterns are not yet attested as a substitute of imperative mood in subordinate clauses.

    Full Text Available Junto a los autores y mecenas, la función principal del libro lo ocupa el papel del librero-editor de la obra. Tenemos que remontarnos al siglo xvi para entender que la figura del librero, editor y autor del libro responden, en la mayor parte de los casos, a una misma persona. El grabador del Renacimiento se mantiene en el anonimato dejando —sólo en muy escasas ocasiones— su huella a partir de las iniciales o del anagrama.Togetfier witfi the autfiors and the patrons, the main role in the production of the book was placed by the publisher-bookseller of the work. We have to go back to the xvith century to understand that the figure of bookseller. publisher and author of the book were inited in one person. The Renaissance engravers remain anonymous, leaving —only in very few occasions— their mark through their initials or anagrams.

    Full Text Available El dominio colonial sobre el Nuevo Mundo se inició a través de prácticas ampliamente ceremoniales -poniendo cruces, estandartes, banderas y escudos de armas- marchando en procesiones, recogiendo tierra, midiendo las estrellas, trazando mapas, expresando algunas palabras especiales, o permaneciendo en silencio. Aunque la fuerza militar aseguró efectivamente su poder sobre el Nuevo Mundo, los europeos de los siglos XVI y XVII también creyeron en su derecho a dominar. Y se crearon esos derechos para sí mismos por medio de la exposición simbólica de palabras y gestos significativos, unas veces antes, otras después o simultáneamente con la conquista militar.

    The transition arrays 3p[sup 3], 3s3p3d-3p[sup 2]3d, 3s3d[sup 2] have been identified in the spectra of aluminium-like K VII-Ni XVI ions, excited in a laser-produced plasma. On the basis of this identification the energies of the essential part of the levels of the 3p[sup 2]3d and 3s3d[sup 2] configurations and the 3s3p3d[sup 4]F term have been determined for the first time in these ions. The identifications are supported by the multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock calculations. (orig.).

    Full Text Available Desde hace varias décadas se sabe que los telómeros, o extremos eucarióticos de los cromosomas, tienen propiedades únicas. Las terminaciones naturales de cromosomas normales (no rotos son estables y no muestran tendencia a fusionarse con otras terminaciones (nativas o rotas. En cambio, los nuevos extremos de cromosomas rotos son “pegajosos” y tienden a fusionarse entre sí, lo que indica que los telómeros deben tener estructuras especiales diferentes de los extremos producidos por rompimiento de cromosomas. En el presente trabajo se profundiza elestudio sobre la aplicabilidad del índice de máxima regularidad (imax,r para la detección de telómeros en secuencias de ADN. El imax,r se aplica específicamente al estudio de los telómeros del cromosoma XVI de Saccharomyces cerevisae y el genoma completo de la Candida parapsilosismitochondrion. En este caso, el telómero fue identificado exactamente en la región en que se encuentra documentado. En el caso del cromosoma XVI las regiones de mayor nivel de regularidad, para longitudes de ventana de hasta aproximadamente 700 pares de bases, quedaron todas comprendidas en las regiones teloméricas. Los resultados obtenidos enlos casos estudiados sugieren que el imax,r, conjuntamente con otras características genéticas, es una herramienta eficaz para la detección de telómeros.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo, parte de mi tesis doctoral, aporta un singular estudio de la Alhambra elaborado desde la información obtenida de los libros de cuentas de las obras reales de este Real Sitio. Con el presente trabajo comprobaremos que este tipo de fuentes contienen valiosos datos para la Historia en general pero ante todo para la Historia Económica. En el caso concreto que abordamos, nos han servido para conocer cómo, cuando y donde se realizaron reparos, remodelaciones y nuevas construcciones en la Alhambra del siglo XVI, tema de vital importancia para la Historia del Arte de este monumento. Las obras reales de la Alhambra fueron iniciadas en la etapa de los Reyes Católicos, al día siguiente de la entrada en el recinto, cuando comprobaron el deterioro de esta bella ciudadela y fortaleza. Con el mismo ahínco y respeto fueron seguidas por su nieto Carlos V, quien sumó, al antiguo conjunto palaciego, la construcción del palacio imperial y su entorno urbanístico renacentistas. Finalmente, las obras fueron continuadas por Felipe II y sus sucesores los Austrias. Gracias al esfuerzo económico realizado por ellos, sobre todo durante el siglo XVI, hoy podemos contemplar la Alhambra. Ratifican lo dicho los Cargos y Datas de los libros de cuentas de Ceprián y Gaspar, fedatarios del volumen de las inversiones y de los considerables gastos realizados por la Real Hacienda castellana en las obras de la Alhambra1. Es valiosísima la aportación de los citados libros al respecto ya que recogen, detalladamente, los ingresos recibidos de cada una de esas consignaciones y su procedencia. Del mismo modo las datas nos proporcionan la cuantificación del gasto de las obras, pormenorizado por conceptos, en qué lugar del recinto se realizaron, qué materiales utilizaron y quiénes fueron sus proveedores –incluyendo curiosidades como la dificultad de la lejanía de canteras e incluso las particulares situaciones laborales de alguno de sus

A esta organismo dirigido por el prelado y que crecía auspiciado por el cabildo, le correspondía para financiar su actividad la recaudación de un cúmulo importante de rentas de diferente naturaleza: rentas de los inmuebles adscritos a su patrimonio, excusados de Obra, aliceres, mandas y demandas e ingresos extraordinarios. La envergadura de estas rentas y una sabia gestión apoyada en un sólido aparato administrativo, forjado en base a la experiencia, venía a garantizar un sabio empleo de estos recursos financieros. La aplicación de los mismos se materializaba, no sólo en atender los afanes de la vida cotidiana, sino en acometer imponentes obras artísticas que hoy en día invaden todos los rincones del templo catedral.

    Full Text Available En la literatura histórica colombiana y caribeña se ha dado un fuerte acento en el papel que jugaron las ciudades y las regiones que emergieron de ellas en ola formación la moderna cultura caribeña. En la arqueología el énfasis se ha limitado a analizar procesos prehispánicos adaptativos a condiciones cambiantes del medio ambiente dejando de manera tacita fuera de foco la discusión de las consecuencias sociales y culturales de la conquista y la colonia y su impacto en el tejido social que surgiría a finales del siglo XVI. Estas delimitaciones disciplinarias se han convertido en un obstáculo para el conocimiento e interpretación de las dinámicas que siguieron al impulso inicial de la colonización del litoral caribeño y la bien conocida fundación de los centros militares y administrativos. Consecuentemente los historiadores han ignorado en gran parte el papel de las poblaciones aborígenes en la formación de los asentamientos al interior de la llanura costera a pesar que es un hecho bien conocido que no desaparecieron completamente después del siglo XVI. A pesar de que han existido intentos de sintetizar y complementar la información histórica con datos arqueológicos especialmente en los últimos diez años no hemos asistido a un evaluación del campo que consideramos de la mayor importancia para entender la estrategias a traves de las cuales las comunidades aborígenes y algo mas tarde las comunidades de composición mixta africano-indígena y mestizas establecieron exitosamente una serie de asentamientos fuera del sistema colonial reinante. El análisis de los patrones de asentamiento se ha restringido a estudios arqueológicos pero su potencial se extiende mucho mas alla de esta disciplina. La colonia en el siglo XVIII registra un gran número de asentamientos en las planicies caribeñas para los cuales tenemos muy poca información precedente, se hace necesario entonces entender el sistema de asentamientos que exitosamente

XVI, gives foot to the study of the school of grammar of this monastery in the humanistic stage, as well as to a diagnose of the intellectual level of the Navarrese cistercienses monasteries at the moments at which Felipe II tries to put them under the authority of Castile. It is deduced that the arguments used by the informers of the king on the intellectual deficiencies of its abbots, are an excuse to justify the true regal interests, that were not but those to remove to these centers of the obedience of the house French mother, from fear of the heretical influences that could arrive at the heat of a country that was living a religion war process. Finally the philippine plans will leave ahead using like blunt weapon the Right Patronage, although in s. XVII the Navarrese ciscercienses monasteries will be able to narrow a union of themselves hierarchically with the province of Aragón and not of Castile.El descubrimiento y análisis del inventario de la biblioteca del monasterio cisterciense de Iranzu a fines del s.

    Full Text Available La cátedra de matemáticas y astronomía de la Universidad de Salamanca del S. XVI se dedicaba al estudio de la astronomía, aritmética, geometría y cosmografía. Se le intenta conceder más importancia por las aplicaciones prácticas que estas disciplinas pueden tener, pero la realidad era que en las universidades españolas no se estudiaban las técnicas y que las matemáticas solamente se leían en la de Salamanca, pero de forma teórica. Varias generaciones de matemáticos se pueden destacar en la Universidad de Salamanca del S. XVI: Los que están influenciados por los calculadores ingleses, los que imponen una orientación humanística y los nominalistas. Con respecto a la astronomía hemos visto la influencia que ejercían en la Universidad los griegos, Ptolomeo, Alfonso X o Nicolás Copérnico. En las aulas salmantinas se confrontaron las ideas científicas con la experiencia de los navegantes, llegando al establecimiento de una nueva imagen del orbe terrestre. También contribuyó la Universidad en la reforma del calendario gregoriano. Con respecto a los planes de estudio, poca importancia concedían los estatutos de 1538 a esta cátedra. Sólo explican que los profesores lean aritmética, geometría, astrologia, perspectiva y cosmografía. Exactamente lo mismo que habían dispuesto los supuestos estatutos de 1529. Son los estatutos de 1561 los que empiezan a darle importancia, concediéndole una duración de tres años para explicar el programa completo. Especifican las lecturas por años y meses. Introducen la grandísima innovación de poder leer a Copérnico a voto de los oyentes, en un momento que se está prohibiendo en toda Europa. Los estatutos de 1594 dan un programa más completo a esta cátedra, reformando casi totalmente al plan de Covarrubias (1561 y obligando ya la lectura de Copérnico. Gracias a los libros de visitas de cátedras que se conservan en el archivo de la Universidad, hemos podido constatar que los catedr

    We present the first in a series of papers in The role of Environment in shaping Low-mass Early-type Nearby galaxies (hELENa) project. In this paper, we combine our sample of 20 low-mass early types (dEs) with 258 massive early types (ETGs) from the ATLAS3D survey - all observed with the SAURON integral field unit - to investigate early-type galaxies' stellar population scaling relations and the dependence of the population properties on local environment, extended to the low-σ regime of dEs. The ages in our sample show more scatter at lower σ values, indicative of less massive galaxies being affected by the environment to a higher degree. The shape of the age-σ relations for cluster versus non-cluster galaxies suggests that cluster environment speeds up the placing of galaxies on the red sequence. While the scaling relations are tighter for cluster than for the field/group objects, we find no evidence for a difference in average population characteristics of the two samples. We investigate the properties of our sample in the Virgo cluster as a function of number density (rather than simple clustrocentric distance) and find that dE ages correlate with the local density such that galaxies in regions of lower density are younger, likely because they are later arrivals to the cluster or have experienced less pre-processing in groups, and consequently used up their gas reservoir more recently. Overall, dE properties correlate more strongly with density than those of massive ETGs, which was expected as less massive galaxies are more susceptible to external influences.

    Full Text Available La religión tiene amplios nexos discursivos y prácticos con la ayuda desinteresada a los demás. En este trabajo se pretende analizar algunos vínculos conceptuales y argumentativos entre la religión católica y las acciones voluntarias. Se usan para este fin algunos discursos de Benedicto XVI. El análisis se realiza desde una perspectiva retórica usando diversos recursos analíticos de esta larga tradición, particularmente de Bitzer, y Perelman y Olbrechts-Tyteca. El enfoque retórico permite observar la estructura argumentativa de un discurso que pretende convencer que las acciones voluntarias están motivadas por principios religiosos, no obstante su diversa motivación. La figura de Jesucristo como el voluntario primario, además de modelo de sacrificio y de reciprocidad, forma quizás el principal núcleo argumentativo de este imaginario católico sobre el voluntariado.

Desapareció la poliginia y el precio de la novia, y se legitimó el matrimonio a través del sacramento católico; se instauró la costumbre de la dote mediterránea y los hijos empezaron a heredar los bienes de su padre. Sin embargo, los testamentos demuestran la persistencia de algunos rasgos matrilineales en los legados que los hombres dejaban a los hijos de sus hermanas y en la sucesión de los cacicazgos. La migración masiva de indígenas a la nueva ciudad promovió el mestizaje y la reconfiguración de las familias indígenas que acogieron en su seno a huérfanos de diferente condición. Algunas mujeres alcanzaron posiciones inéditas y recurrieron a la Real Audiencia para defender los derechos que creían conculcados por sus maridos indígenas o por los padres españoles de sus hijos.

    Full Text Available This article shows the role accomplished by political alliances between catholic orders and indigenous groups during the Spanish conquest of the Apolobamba high forests. This was an alternative way to set missions positions and power spaces in front of the military State advance. Furthermore, this strategy shows that catholic orders did not form a compact block neither with the State nor with more or less irregular troops which entered to Apolobamba from the middle sixteenth century, as they looked indeed at any moment for their own autonomy based on indigenous consensus.

    Este artículo demuestra el rol que cumplieron en la ocupación española de las selvas de Apolobamba las alianzas políticas entre órdenes religiosas y grupos aborígenes, como modo alternativo de fijar posiciones y espacios de poder frente al avance militar oficial. Esta estrategia demuestra a la vez que las órdenes no formaron un bloque compacto con el estado ni con las tropas más o menos irregulares que penetraron Apolobamba desde mediados del siglo XVI, sino que aspiraron en todo momento a su propia autonomía mediante el logro del consenso indígena.

    Full Text Available El encuentro europeo con las nuevas especies y espacios americanos en el siglo XVI, complejiza ese universo de percepciones de superioridad occidental frente a mundos que se consideraban más exóticos y menos civilizados. Las descripciones europeas de la naturaleza americana, las primeras imágenes de sus productos alimenticios y especies autóctonas pintadas con los colores del paraíso, el exotismo y la belleza, la fertilidad y la abundancia, ayudarán a conformar una imagen positiva del continente americano. A pesar del original desprecio o indiferencia frente a ciertos alimentos indígenas, con el tiempo estas percepciones cambiarán al convertirse muchos de ellos en salvavidas de las hambrunas mundiales e ingredientes fundamentales de las gastronomías nacionalesThe European encounter with the new American space and it species during the sixteenth century, allows us to look at the European percepction of superiority towards exotic worlds in a more complex way. European description of American nature, the first visual images of the local species described with the colors of paradise, exotism and beauty, fertility and abundance, help in constructing a positive image of America. Despite the original disdain or indifference towards the indigenous food, these percepctions will change over time when many of these products become a solution to world wide hunger and important ingredients for national gastronomies

  16. Pluralidade lingüística, escola de bê-á-bá e teatro jesuítico no Brasil do século XVI

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo focaliza o Brasil "indianizado" do século XVI no qual predominava a pluralidade lingüística, destacando-se o tupi e o português. O primeiro era a língua "geral" (nheengatu, falada por todos e de aprendizado obrigatório para os jesuítas; o segundo estava restrito às casas de bê-á-bá mantidas pela Companhia de Jesus. Neste contexto surgiu o teatro anchietano, encenado preferencialmente em português e tupi, com o objetivo de catequizar. Nosso estudo nos permitiu concluir que, tanto na forma como no conteúdo, o teatro serviu à aculturação, pois "cristianizou" a cultura indígena ridicularizando os seus mitos, que eram protagonizados pelos próprios índios, além de expandir o uso do português, principal idioma das peças. Começou aí a substituição da pluralidade lingüística pelo português, hegemônico a partir do século XVIII.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho pretende analisar as relações existentes entre o discurso atual sobre a emancipação através da Educação, enunciado pelas propostas educacionais ditas inovadoras, e as obras publicadas no século XVI, como Utopia, de Thomas More, onde a emancipação estava condicionada a uma transformação social profunda. A emancipação, como categoria, foi abordada por Marx em suas obras de juventude, ora como categoria de análise da emancipação religiosa (A Questão Judaica, ora como categoria condicionada pela alienação (Manuscritos Econômico-Filosóficos. Uma Utopia, em determinado momento histórico, aparece como discurso de fronteiras sempre móveis, sempre alguns passos à frente da realidade objetiva. Ela também se constitui como obra crítica ao existente em sua época. A partir desta constatação, propõe-se a análise do discurso emancipatório presente nas propostas educacionais ditas ―inovadoras‖ na atualidade, que atribuem ao poder presente na individualidade, na subjetividade e no protagonismo do aluno a emancipação do homem, desprezando ou desconsiderando a complexidade do contexto histórico social mais amplo. Com esta proposta, pretende-se discutir limites e potencialidades das propostas educacionais ditas ―inovadoras‖.

    Full Text Available Using epigraphic testimonies and unpublished documents, we can establish that the chapel of the family Neira de Luaces was founded in the first quarter of the 16th Century, being sponsored by Juan Outeiro, ancient alderman of Santiago de Compostela. This chapel is in the church of Santa María do Camiño, a building directly linked with the pilgrimages tradition, situated near of the old door of the French Way. We try to describe the historical evolution of this chapel till today, making a bibliographical review and a historiographical synthesis, where are combined material evidences and textual testimonies. We are also publishing new information about its artistic configuration that acquires a new dimension and a new meaning, being understood in the context of the family pantheon.

La capilla se encuentra en la iglesia compostelana de Santa María do Camiño, muy ligada a la tradición jacobea por estar situada en la entrada de la ciudad, junto a la antigua puerta del Camino Francés. Se sigue en lo posible su evolución hasta nuestros días, efectuando una labor de revisión y síntesis históriográfica que combina la evidencia material y la escrita. Se aportan además, algunos datos sobre determinados aspectos artísticos que adquieren nueva dimensión y significado al ser tratados en su conjunto, contextualizando el recinto funerario familiar en el ámbito urbano y considerando al mismo tiempo los diferentes períodos históricos.

    Full Text Available Durante la Edad Moderna, las Inquisiciones de España y de Portugal se vieron obligadas a mantener una comunicación constante, que permitió el intercambio regular de información relativa a posibles herejes, sobre todo judaizantes. Muchos más problemas generó el espinoso asunto de la remisión de reos de un reino a otro. A pesar de los intentos de la Inquisición española, en el siglo XVI, y de la portuguesa, en el XVII, para que se estableciesen los casos y supuestos en los que podrían extraditarse herejes, nunca se llegó a firmar ningún acuerdo entre los dos tribunales. Por ello, las remisiones de reos de un reino a otro se debieron siempre a la voluntad de los sucesivos inquisidores generales, a las estrategias concretas de cada tribunal de distrito y a factores coyunturales.During the Early Modern Age, the Portuguese and Spanish Inquisition kept continuous communication, which allowed them the regular exchange of information regarding heretics, especially that of Judaism. More problems were generated by the hard issue of the extradition of accused between the two kingdoms. Despite the efforts on both sides, no agreement was signed regarding what fact and circumstances would dictate the extradition of Heretics, between Portugal and Spain. For this reason, the extraditions from a kingdom to the other were always due to the wishes of the different general inquisitors, to the specific strategies of each district tribunal and to current circumstances.

    Full Text Available Este texto tem o objetivo de apresentar algumas reflexões referente a reforma da Universidade de Coimbra, realizada no reinado de D. João III, século XVI. Mediante a análise desse período chamamos atenção para dois aspectos presente na vida da instituição: contratação docente e reorganização financeira. Percebemos que esses dois aspectos podem ser compreendidos como algumas das diretrizes da Coroa portuguesa para reformar a Universidade de Coimbra. Por meio da analise e apresentação das fontes documentais, cartas e alvarás remetidos a Universidade pela Coroa, procuramos demonstrar ao leitor a importância desse momento para a história das instituições de ensino não apenas portuguesas, mas também brasileiras, já que depois desse fato a Universidade de Coimbra passou a ser considerada o centro de formação do Império, responsável pela formação dos quadros dirigentes da sociedade, tanto no plano eclesiástico como civil, no reino e em territórios de ultramarinhos. Acreditamos que investigar esse momento histórico da Universidade de Coimbra colabora na compreensão dos objetivos de formação humana que se pretendia naquele período.

    2008-08-01

    Full Text Available This article analyzes the policies of the Society of Jesus in the 16th and 17th centuries regarding the ordination of mestizos and the doctrine of purity of the blood as an attempt of the Peruvian Jesuit authorities to keep the “impure” away from the centers of power. Mestizos were always suspected of jeopardizing the necessary hierarchy which stratified the colonial order. From this premise, I will try to prove that the exclusion of “Jesuit impure” had nothing to do with the mixing per se, but with the consolidation of the criollo as a social emerging category in Peru of the beginning at the 17th century.

    Este artículo analiza las políticas de la Compañía de Jesús en los siglos XVI y XVII con respecto a la ordenación de mestizos y a la doctrina de pureza de sangre como un intento por parte de las autoridades jesuitas peruanas de alejar a los «impuros» de los centros de poder. Los mestizos fueron siempre sospechosos de poner en peligro la jerarquía necesaria que estratificaba el orden colonial. Partiendo de esta premisa trataré de demostrar que la exclusión de los «impuros jesuitas» no tenía nada que ver con la mezcla per se, sino con la consolidación del criollo como categoría social emergente en el Perú de principios del siglo XVII.

En dichos recetarios aparecen medio centenar de recetas que especifi can la finalidad de los perfumes y cosméticos citados, los ingredientes utilizados en su elaboración y los procesos técnicos seguidos para la preparación de las sustancias y la aplicación de los compuestos. Todo ello pone de relieve una faceta poco estudiada de la vida cotidiana en la Edad Media, relacionada con la medicina y la salud, con la estética y la belleza, y con el cuidado del cuerpo.

    Cañeque, Alejandro

    2004-12-01

    Full Text Available This article examines the relationship between public ritual and colonial authority in sixteenth and seventeenth-century New Spain. In colonial society, the establishment of authority depended more on such things as prestige, reputation and/or public appearance than on the use of force. This helps explain the great transcendence attributed by contemporaries to all kinds of public rituals. Their effects were far from negligible: they were much more than a disguise with which to make the rulers’ power more palatable. Royal officials constituted their power and identities through public ceremony, and therefore placed crucial importance on maintaining an authoritative public image.

    El artículo estudia la interrelación entre ritual público y autoridad colonial en la Nueva España de los siglos XVI y XVII. En la sociedad colonial, el afianzamiento de la autoridad dependía más de cuestiones tales como prestigio, reputación y/o apariencia pública que del uso de la fuerza. Eso permite explicar la trascendencia tan grande que los contemporáneos dieron a todo tipo de rituales públicos pues sus efectos estaban lejos de ser algo insignificante y eran mucho más que simples disfraces para hacer más digerible el poder de los gobernantes. Los oficiales reales consituían su poder y su identidad a través del ceremonial público y, por tanto, daban una importancia crucial al mantenimiento de una imagen pública llena de autoridad.

    Full Text Available Cuando se hace mención del impacto de la llegada de los españoles sobre los pueblos indígenas, se suele hablar casi siempre de aspectos tangibles y cuantificables: descenso demográfico, cambio de habitats, migraciones, nuevo sistema económico, dominación política, cambio de estructura social, etc.; sin embargo, hay otra serie de aspectos más difíciles de aprehender este fenómeno de aculturación, absorción cultural o «desestructuración». Nos referimos a los denominados de una forma excesivamente genérica como objeto de estudio por parte de la «Historia Espiritual» o «Historia de las Mentalidades», por utilizar el término actualmente más reiterado en la bibliografía reciente. Dentro de este «etéreo» apartado de la Historia, la Conciencia como capacidad de distinción entre el Bien y el Mal con toda su complejidad a lo largo del tiempo, debería ocupar un lugar por sí misma; no estaría de más que en estos momentos en que todo se considera digno de ser considerado como objeto de grandes historias —desde el calzado a la vida privada—, se publicase una «Historia de la Conciencia». El objetivo de este artículo es mucho más modesto, sólo pretende ayudar a entender la formación de la Conciencia cristiana de los indígenas y su proceso, a través de los «manuales de confesión» del siglo XVI; sin embargo, hay otros muchos temas anejos a éste y presentes en los «manuales» que estudiamos; temas que no vamos a desarrollar del todo, pero que ofrecemos a modo de sugerencia para otros especialista y futuros trabajos.

    Full Text Available Given the limited scientific training of pilots who traveled to the Spanish Indies in the early sixteenth century, Spanish Crown, first with Charles V and later with Philip II, was devoted not only to build institutions and scientific positions for organizing the nautical and cosmographic knowledge of the New World, but also teaching methods designed in the form of lectures, courses and examinations for the training and licensing of those navigators willing to sail the Mar Océano (Atlantic Ocean. The ultimate objective of the Monarchy was, first, to guarantee the maintenance of its production overseas Empire and, secondly, to ensure both the safety of their fleets and their men as well as State coffers, since the shipwrecks posed serious economic losses.

    Dada la escasa formación científica de los pilotos que viajaban a Indias en los primeros años del siglo XVI, la Corona española, primero con Carlos I al frente y más tarde con Felipe II, no sólo se conformó con crear instituciones y cargos científicos para organizar el saber náutico y cosmográfico del Nuevo Mundo, sino que además diseñó métodos pedagógicos, en forma de cátedras, cursos y exámenes, para la formación y licencia de aquellos navegantes dispuestos a surcar el “Mar Océano”. El objetivo último de la Monarquía era, por un lado, garantizar el mantenimiento de su productivo imperio de ultramar y, por el otro, velar tanto por la seguridad de sus flotas y hombres como por las arcas del Estado, pues los naufragios de los navíos suponían grandes pérdidas económicas. La unión entre ciencia y experiencia sería el mejor remedio.

    This paper identifies the true coverage of PM theory through a bibliometric analysis of the International Journal of Project Management from 1996-2012. We identify six persistent research themes: project time management, project risk management, programme management, large-scale project management......, project success/failure and practitioner development. These differ from those presented in review and editorial articles in the literature. In addition, topics missing from the PM BOK: knowledge management project-based organization and project portfolio management have become more popular topics...

  20. Os objetos da música e da matemática e a subalternação das ciências em alguns tratados de música do século XVI

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Sabe-se que, durante alguns períodos da história, a Música e a Matemática foram ciências que compartilharam seus conceitos e discussões. Um dos períodos no qual essa comunhão se deu de maneira significativa foi o Renascimento. A Música era então classificada como ciência e, pertencendo ao grupo das matemáticas, dividia seu espaço com a Aritmética, a quem era subordinada, com a Geometria e a Astronomia. Essa divisão foi transmitida através das obras do filósofo Sevério N. Boécio e prevaleceu durante o século XVI, juntamente da noção de subalternação das ciências, provida na obra de Aristóteles e de seus comentaristas. Contudo, durante a segunda metade do século XVI, o cenário teórico foi sofrendo questionamentos e sendo por vezes reformulado. Tais reformulações tomaram várias formas, todavia, foi no diálogo entre dois autores específicos, Gioseffo Zarlino (1517-1590 e Vincenzo Galilei (1533?-1591, que a estrutura vigente foi realmente abalada. Neste artigo, pretendese mostrar a relevância da subalternação das ciências na discussão metodológica para a pretendida reformulação teórica, visto que um dos problemas metodológicos centrais da demonstração nas ciências matemáticas do século XVI foi a reconciliação entre as condições ideais, que governavam o mundo matemático, no caso específico o da Aritmética, e as condições reais do mundo físico natural.

  1. Entre Hacienda Real y poderes locales: los intentos de reformar las finanzas municipales del reino de Napóles en los siglos XVI y XVII

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Durante los sesenta años de transición entre los siglos XVI y XVII se concentran los mayores esfuerzos llevados a cabo en la edad de los Austrias para aumentar el control del poder central sobre la gestión de las finanzas municipales del reino de Napóles, con la doble finalidad de garantizar la regularidad del producto fiscal proveniente de las comunidades y, al mismo tiempo, constituir una reserva de capitales a la cual el soberano pudiera acceder con facilidad y con condiciones menos onerosas que las aplicadas habitualmente por los banqueros. Ambas finalidades son la consecuencia de las crecientes exigencias financieras de la Corona que se registran en el mismo período y que llevan a un crecimiento rápido y vertiginoso de los recursos enviados fuera de los límites del reino, principalmente a Lombardía o a Flandes, para asistir a los ejércitos de la Monarquía. A pesar de la determinación demostrada, la Hacienda Real nunca consigue controlar de una forma completa las finanzas urbanas, sobre todo por la oposición de los poderes económicos —tanto de la capital y como de las provincias del reino— que habrían resultado afectados. A partir de los años 30 del siglo XVII los proyectos de reforma se retiran a cambio del compromiso de los patriciados de las ciudades de cobrar los impuestos y enviarlos a la Corte del modo más puntual. Profundizar en las modalidades a través de las cuales estos proyectos de reformas son llevados a cabo,aunque de modo inacabado, permite comprender mejor la índole de las finanzas urbanas como espacio de poder contendido entre élites dirigentes ciudadanas y Hacienda Real.ABSTRACT: The most important efforts to reform the urban finances realized in the Kingdom of Naples at the time of Spanish rule were done between 1570 and 1630. The increasing financial needing, due to an enormous military expense, obliged the Spanish Monarchy to make any attempt in order to insure the regularity of the tax

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo realiza una revisión bibliográfica de los tratados pedagógicos de teneduría de libros en el Reino Unido desde el siglo XVI, cuando se incorporó la partida doble, hasta finales del siglo XIX.Los rasgos didácticos más significativos de los primeros 250 años de docencia en teneduría de libros se resumen en la importancia que se concede al Libro Diario. Con el desarrollo de la partida doble se hizo habitual ampliar el significado de los términos débito y crédito más allá de la connotación personal original y aplicarlos a objetos inanimados y conceptos abstractos. La exposición mediante la personificación de cuentas consistía en un aprendizaje memorístico apoyado en normas y versificación.La disputa entre los que eran partidarios del Diario y aquellos que preferían el Mayor como libro de enseñanza, no era otra cosa más que la traducción del conflicto entre el enfoque memorístico y el racional de la teneduría de libros. Los seguidores del enfoque del Mayor salieron doblemente reforzados: significaba una enseñanza más racional y un cambio en las exigencias de los negocios.El Diario perdió su posición dominante cuando, a mediados del siglo XIX, surgió una teoría alternativa a la personificación de las cuentas. Se trata de la teoría de la propiedad de las cuentas y se ocupa del significado de éstas desde el punto de vista del propietario.The present paper makes a bibliographic checking of the pedagogic treatises of bookkeeping in the United Kingdom since 16th Century, when the double-entry system was introduced, up to the end of 19th Century.The most outstanding didactic feature of the first 250 years of bookkeeping teaching could be summed up in the prevalent role the Journal was given. With the development of the double-entry system, it became common extending the meaning of the terms debit and credit beyond the original personal connotation and applying them to inanimate objects and abstract

    Full Text Available En Tunja y Santafé, la prosperidad económica de los colonizadores, especialmente la de los beneficiados con la posesión de encomiendas, se basaba en el aprovechamiento de los recursos provenientes de las comunidades indígenas, especialmente de la mano de obra. Como expuso Villamarín, durante el siglo XVI los principales puntos de encuentro entre colonizadores e indígenas estuvieron relacionados con el trabajo. El trabajo funcionaba como forma de tributo en las encomiendas, pues durante una buena parte este siglo, las tasas de tributos elaboradas por la Corona imponían a las comunidades la obligación de cultivar para el encomendero labranzas de maíz, trigo, cebada y papas.

    How relevant is ethics to project management? The book - which aims to demystify the field of ethics for project managers and managers in general - takes both a critical and a practical look at project management in terms of success criteria, and ethical opportunities and risks. The goal is to help the reader to use ethical theory to further identify opportunities and risks within their projects and thereby to advance more directly along the path of mature and sustainable managerial practice.

    Virtual projects are common with global competition, market development, and not least the financial crisis forcing organizations to reduce their costs drastically. Organizations therefore have to place high importance on ways to carry out virtual projects and consider appropriate practices...... for performing these projects. This paper compares best practices with practiced practices for virtual projects and discusses ways to bridge the gap between them. We have studied eleven virtual projects in five Danish organizations and compared them with a predefined list of best practices compiled from...... that the best practice knowledge has not permeated sufficiently to the practice. Furthermore, the appropriate application of information and communication technology (ICT) remains a big challenge, and finally project managers are not sufficiently trained in organizing and conducting virtual projects...

    Full Text Available LE SINGE DE DIEU. LES INDIGÈNES ET L’ÉGLISE FACE À L’ÉVANGÉLISATION DU PÉROU, XVI-XVIIÈME SIÈCLES À plusieurs reprises, l’Église mit en question les résultats de son évangélisation du Pérou. Elle accusa les Indiens d’être aussi idolâtres qu’avant la conquête, leur catholicisme n’étant qu’une simple façade hypocrite. L’historiographie a pris à son compte cette justification du pouvoir colonial, construite pour imposer son monopole religieux, et s’en est servie pour caractériser en des termes de ferme résistance religieuse l’attitude de la population indigène face à l’Occident. Si l’on étudie de plus près les phénomènes religieux qui furent réprimés sous le nom d’idolâtries, on constate que, non seulement la plupart d’entre eux sont fortement inspirés par les rites catholiques, mais sont également l’expression d’une volonté évidente de les reproduire. Devant l’impossibilité d’accepter une autonomie religieuse catholique indigène, l’Église devra considérer ces rituels comme des parodies démoniaques et inventer un nouveau passé indigène. La Iglesia puso reiteradamente en duda su labor de evangelización en el Perú, acusando a los indios de seguir siendo tan idólatras como antes y su catolicismo sólo una fachada hipócrita. La historiografía ha asumido esta justificación del poder colonial, que le permitió imponer su monopolio simbólico, como una verdad absoluta caracterizando la actitud de la población indígena ante la presencia occidental como una férrea resistencia religiosa. Si vemos de cerca los fenómenos religiosos que son reprimidos bajo el nombre de idolatrías encontramos que muchos de ellos no sólo están fuertemente inspirados por los ritos católicos, sino que son la expresión de una abierta voluntad de reproducirlos. Ante la imposibilidad de aceptar una autonomía religiosa católica indígena, la Iglesia se verá obligada a considerar estas expresiones como

    Project organising is a growing field of scholarly inquiry and management practice. In recent years, two important developments have influenced this field: (1) the study and practice of projects have extended their level of analysis from mainly focussing on individual projects to focussing on micro......- as well as macro-level concerns around projects; and (2) there has been a greater interest in different kinds of scholarly inquiry. Taken together, these two developments call for closer scrutiny of how the levels of analysis and the types of inquiry are related and benefit each other...... project research: (1) levels of analysis; and (2) type of research.

    Full Text Available After a brief setup on musicological studies on the relationships between Naples and Spain, in particular in the keyboard production of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, this paper occupies almost exclusively - on analysis and style - on the LIBRO DI RICERCATE A QVATTRO VOCI DI ROCCO RODIO CON ALCVNE FANTASIE SOPRA VARII CANTI FERMI, published in Naples by Gioseppe Cacchio dall’Aquila in 1575. The book by Rocco Rodio (“Rocchus Rodius Civitatis Barensis”; Bari-Napoli 1530ca, 1615ca is the fi rst release ever appeared in score, which was particularly followed in Naples in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century and of which we find significant use in Italy and Europe throughout the course of the seventeenth century, with examples also in the eighteenth century. The analysis of form and style of the compositions contained in this printing shows the ‘Modern’ and progressive author’s writing, which seems refractory to the contemporary practice of improvisation and ‘diminutions’ that was practiced in the polyphonic motet and madrigale affettuoso; the fantasies are a superb example of invention and mastery of composition to be read not only in the flow of tradition practiced on the harpsichord, but should be understood as the exemplary model resulted in the broader vocal, didactic and experimental literature of the polyphonic instrumental schools in Naples, Rome and Spain.Tras un breve repaso de los estudios musicológicos centrados en las relaciones que la música para tecla de los siglos XVI y XVII creó entre Nápoles y España, el ensayo se centra de manera casi exclusiva, y desde un punto de vista analítico y estilístico, en el «Libro di ricercate a qvattro voci di Rocco Rodio con alcvne fantasie sopra Varii canti fermi» publicado en Nápoles por Gioseppe Cacchio dall’Aquila en el 1575.

    The Watchdog Project completed 100% of the project Statement of Project Objective (SOPO). The Watchdog project was a very aggressive project looking to accomplish commercialization of technology that had never been commercialized, as a result it took six years to complete not the original three that were planned. No additional federal funds were requested from the original proposal and SEL contributed the additional cost share required to complete the project. The result of the Watchdog Project is the world’s first industrial rated Software Defined Network (SDN) switch commercially available. This technology achieved the SOPOO and DOE Roadmap goals to have strong network access control, improve reliability and network performance, and give the asset owner the ability to minimize attack surface before and during an attack. The Watchdog project is an alliance between CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric, Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL), and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL). SEL is the world’s leader in microprocessor-based electronic equipment for protecting electric power systems. PNNL performs basic and applied research to deliver energy, environmental, and national security for our nation. CenterPoint Energy is the third largest publicly traded natural gas delivery company in the U.S and third largest combined electricity and natural gas delivery company. The Watchdog Project efforts were combined with the SDN Project efforts to produce the entire SDN system solution for the critical infrastructure.

The second study compared trained prisoners with a matched-pair control group and found improvement in self-reported anger, self-compassion, and certain forms of mindfulness among the trained group. Ratings of role-plays simulating difficult interactions show increased social skills among the group trained by Freedom Project than in the matched controls.

Following an introduction to the methods of the symbolic notation, the text advances to a consideration of the theory of one-to-one correspondence. It derives the projective properties of the conic and discusses the representation of these properties by the general equation of the second degree.

The extent to which family, social and ethnic background, as well as the relationship of the accused with powerful networks or groups influenced the actions taken by the magistrates and the fulmination of the causes is a particular focus point of the study. Additionally, within the scope of these trials for sodomy, how the granting of privileges and corporate logic also served as possible effective mechanisms used to manipulate and avoid legal provisions is also examined.Este artículo indaga en la actuación de la justicia tanto civil como episcopal en asuntos relativos al delito de sodomía en el Virreinato del Perú entre los siglos XVI y XVII. Particularmente, analiza en qué medida los orígenes familiares, sociales y étnicos de los acusados así como su pertenencia a redes o grupos de poder pudieron influir en la actuación de los magistrados y en la fulminación de las causas. Asimismo, en el marco de los procesos seguidos por sodomía, examina cómo los fueros y la lógica corporativa también pudieron constituir mecanismos eficaces a fin de manipular y eludir las disposiciones judiciales.

    Full Text Available Este texto tiene como objetivo destacar la relación entre la proyección política de la Monarquía Hispánica en sus territorios de Ultramar y la acción evangelizadora. Las particularidades de la Iglesia indiana potenciaron la labor del clero regular, cuya influencia se extendió desde el ámbito de lo religioso hacia todas las esferas de la vida en las nuevas sociedades americanas. Evangelizar significó ante todo crear una identidad colectiva católica y, con ella, la base de la adhesión de los naturales al dominio del rey de España. Para ello destacamos la 'conquista espiritual' como un proceso paralelo y fuertemente ligado a la 'conquista militar', marcado por la violencia de una fe impositiva, anuladora del pasado prehispánico. Lo hacemos a través de imágenes y testimonios del siglo XVI que interpretaron los acontecimientos del cambio que dio lugar a la América hispánica.

Se trata de un ejemplo curioso de las formas como se lee, reinterpreta y reescribe la lírica cancioneril española del siglo XV en el siglo XVI, un periodo, como se sabe, de gran cambio poético. Al margen de este análisis, formulo también una serie de reflexiones sobre el hurto poético en la época. In this article, I offer a comparative analysis between Comendador Ludueña’s “Doctrinal de gentileza” (published in the Cancionero general, 1514 and the Espejo de gentileza, which Luis Hurtado de Toledo printed in 1557, based on the “Doctrinal de gentileza.” It is an intriguing example of the ways in which songbook poetry from the fifteenth century is read, reinterpreted, and rewritten in the sixteenth-century, a period of continuous poetical innovations. Apart from this analysis, I formulate a series of reflections on poetical plagiarism (hurto at the time.

    Full Text Available Este artigo discute a estrutura epistêmica do mundo moderno em relação aos quatro genocídios/epistemicídios do longo século XVI (1450-1650. Argumenta-se que o privilégio epistêmico do homem ocidental foi construído às custas do genocídio/epistemicídios dos sujeitos coloniais. O artigo relaciona o racismo/sexismo epistêmico da estrutura das universidades ocidentalizadas e do mundo moderno ao genocídio/epistemicídio contra muçulmanos e judeus na conquista de Al-Andalus, contra povos nativos na conquista das Américas, contra povos africanos na conquista da África e a escravização dos mesmos nas Américas e, finalmente, contra as mulheres europeias queimadas vivas acusadas de bruxaria. Esses quatro genocídios/epistemicídios são fundantes da estrutura epistêmica moderno-colonial e das universidades ocidentalizadas. A tese principal deste artigo é que a condição de possibilidade para o cartesianismo idolátrico dos anos 1640 que assume o olho de Deus e arroga-se o direito de dizer "penso, logo existo" é o "extermino, logo existo".

The SDN Project formed an alliance between Ameren Corporation, University of Illinois Urbana- Champaign (UIUC), Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL), and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL). The objective of the SDN Project is to address Topic Area of Interest 2: Sustain critical energy delivery functions while responding to a cyber-intrusion under Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-0000797. The goal of the project is to design and commercially release technology that provides a method to sustain critical energy delivery functions during a cyber intrusion and to do this control system operators need the ability to quickly identify and isolate the affected network areas, and re-route critical information and control flows around. The objective of the SDN Project is to develop a Flow Controller that monitors, configures, and maintains the safe, reliable network traffic flows of all the local area networks (LANs) on a control system in the Energy sector. The SDN team identified the core attributes of a control system and produced an SDN flow controller that has the same core attributes enabling networks to be designed, configured and deployed that maximize the whitelisted, deny-bydefault and purpose built networks. This project researched, developed and commercially released technology that: Enables all field networks be to configured and monitored as if they are a single asset to be protected; Enables greatly improved and even precalculated response actions to reliability and cyber events; Supports pre-configured localized response actions tailored to provide resilience against failures and centralized response to cyber-attacks that improve network reliability and availability; Architecturally enables the right subject matter experts, who are usually the information

    Full Text Available In the sixteenth century, there were numerous voyages of discovery in the oceans of the world, expanding European understanding and influence. These explorations, and in particular the knowledge they created, have tended to overshadow other ventures into the unknown. Not just the Europeans, but other cultures as well, navigated the seas and accumulated geographical information, putting together their own ideas about the distribution of the lands and seas around the globe. Arab and Asian seafarers plied the oceans in trade and exploration, and created maps and geographical texts. These maps and texts, however, are not as numerous as a scholar might wish. The Asian maps, particularly early ones, are few in number, and these are virtually all Chinese and Korean creations, world maps based on traditional religious concepts of a circular landmass. There are few maps based on actual navigation. But an early sixteenth-century Portuguese document gives a brief description of a Javanese map, which apparently showed much of the world. It also depicted the routes of the navigations of the Chinese and other Pacific peoples. The map itself has been lost, but we read of it in a letter from the Portuguese admiral Afonso de Albuquerque to his king, Dom Manuel, dated 1 April 1512.No século XVI, várias viagens de descobrimento expandiram a influência e o reconhecimento europeus. Essas expedições marítimas, e em particular o conhecimento que geraram, ofuscaram outras aventuras pelo desconhecido. Outros povos navegaram pelos oceanos, acumularam informações e organizaram suas próprias idéias sobre a distribuição de terras e mares. Navegadores árabes e asiáticos criaram mapas, cartas náuticas e textos geográficos expondo suas descobertas. Esses mapas, no entanto, não são tão numerosos. Os asiáticos, particularmente os mais antigos, são poucos e quase todos originários da China e Coréia, e baseavam-se em conceitos religiosos tradicionais e na id

    The Water Power Program helps industry harness this renewable, emissions-free resource to generate environmentally sustainable and cost-effective electricity. Through support for public, private, and nonprofit efforts, the Water Power Program promotes the development, demonstration, and deployment of advanced hydropower devices and pumped storage hydropower applications. These technologies help capture energy stored by diversionary structures, increase the efficiency of hydroelectric generation, and use excess grid energy to replenish storage reserves for use during periods of peak electricity demand. In addition, the Water Power Program works to assess the potential extractable energy from domestic water resources to assist industry and government in planning for our nation’s energy future. From FY 2008 to FY 2014, DOE’s Water Power Program announced awards totaling approximately $62.5 million to 33 projects focused on hydropower. Table 1 provides a brief description of these projects.

Entre els darrers anys d’aquest segle i els primers del XVI s’ha situat la transició entre l’època daurada de les lletres catalanes i un període que s’ha anomenat durant molt de temps Decadència, i que recentment es tendeix a designar amb el nom més neutre d’edat moderna. Alguns esdeveniments importants hi confluïren, entre els quals l’aparició de la impremta, que es considera com un dels elements que va contribuir al canvi de llengua, a la progressiva substitució lingüística.

En especial, haremos hincapié en la forma en que se representó al príncipe y a la monarquía hacia mediados del siglo XVI. Así, sin dejar de hacer referencia al contexto cultural y político de la época, indagaremos sobre aquellas características que dotaban al soberano y su gobierno de cualidades que daban a su accionar una legitimidad real para intervenir en el gobierno eclesiástico. Para que esto fuera posible, era necesario dotar a España de una identidad. Al igual que otras monarquías europeas, veremos cómo desde el plano discursivo se fundamentó en los modelos históricos de las monarquías antiguas. In this paper we will analyze the relationships between the Church and the Monarchy of Spain through some of the discourses that founded its historiographic building. In particular, we will highlight how they represented the prince and the monarchy in mid sixteenth century. Thus, we will focus on those characteristics that endow the sovereign and his government with qualities that gave his actions a real legitimacy to intervene in ecclesiastical government without disregarding the cultural and politica context of the time. In order to obtain this legitimacy, it was necessary to provide Spain with an identity. Like other European monarchies, we will see how these discourses were founded on the historical patterns of ancient monarchies.

Concretament, actualment s’hi observa una predilecció per l’ús del verb fer, tria que contrasta amb altres llengües, com ara el castellà: fer por vs. dar miedo. Tanmateix, en la llengua antiga hi ha “no·∙m fa paor” al costat de “los que·∙t donen por”. En aquest article es presenta un estudi exhaustiu de les construccions fer+substantiu psicològic i donar+substantiu psicològic en català antic i medieval (ss. XIII-­‐‑XVI amb un doble objectiu. D’una banda, descrivim quines són les construccions primitives de què parteixen aquestes construccions i quin és el procés pel qual esdevenen aptes per a l’expressió de les emocions. De l’altra, demostrem que les construccions amb fer i donar descriuen escenes diferents en la llengua antiga i que la preferència actual per fer és causada per la proximitat de les dues escenes en alguns contextos i per la freqüència d’ús. En aquest sentit ens han estat útils els conceptes proporcionats per la Gramàtica de Construccions Cognitiva (GCxC de Goldberg (1996.

    Full Text Available Beginning with the 16th century conquering expeditions, many Andean natives who served the Spaniards arrived in Chile, where they settled in and integrated in the work and social areas of this outlying «New World»; they formed local networks and relationships, had offspring; a number of them became artisans and some drafted wills or left their mark in ecclesiastical or notarized documents that provide us with an idea of their mobility and local integration. This work offers a background and reveals the principle hubs of a process resembling a medullar structure, in order to understand how the early Chilean colonial society was made up. At the same time, it provides insights into the phenomena of movement, uprooting and settlement of the indigenous population in the southern Peruvian viceroyalty.

    Desde las expediciones de conquista del siglo XVI llegaron a Chile numerosos indígenas andinos que sirvieron a los españoles, se asentaron y se integraron en los espacios laborales y sociales de este «nuevo mundo» periférico; formaron redes y parentescos locales, tuvieron descendencia, varios se transformaron en artesanos y algunos dictaron testamentos o dejaron huellas en documentos eclesiásticos y notariales que nos permiten observar su movilidad e inserción local. Este trabajo aporta antecedentes y desvela los principales ejes de un proceso que aparece como medular para entender la formación de la sociedad colonial chilena temprana y, a la vez, para dar cuenta de fenómenos de circulación, desarraigo y asentamiento de población indígena en el virreinato peruano meridional.

El caso de Talavera de la Reina (Toledo, responde al segundo modelo; propiedad de los arzobispos toledanos desde 1369, cuando Enrique II le concede la villa y su tierra a Gómez Manrique, que entonces ostentaba la mitra en la archidiócesis, Talavera pretenderá a lo largo de tiempo conservar y defender sus privilegios y costumbres forjadas en la etapa en que fuera villa de realengo.During the first half of the Sixteenth Century there existed institutions and power relations in Spain that had been originated in the Middle Age. These institutions can be well documented at a local level, especially in places under manorial dominion. The case of Talavera de la Reina, In Toledo, constltutes a good example to study the expressions and the symbols of power implemented by the town council to maintain its old privileges and customs of its royal jurisdictional past, glven that it fell under ecclesiastical dominión in 1369.

Mediante un análisis histórico documental, la presente investigación reconoció las principales características del proceso de alteración del paisaje ecológico araucano entre los siglos XVI y XVII: (i en el siglo XVI, la introducción de especies exóticas desarticuló el sistema económico mapuche, (ii tanto la relativa pristinidad de la Araucanía como el proceso bélico de los siglos XVI y XVII, favorecieron la introducción y propagación de las nuevas especies, (iii durante el siglo XVI coexistieron especies nativas e introducidas, sin embargo, durante el siglo XVII preponderaron las exóticas, y (iv este predominio habría generado la extinción local de especies animales y vegetales nativas, alterando definitivamente el paisaje ecológico araucanoThe bio-geographic characteristics of the temperate America favored the introduction and spreading of exotic plant and animal species that supported the Hispanic-Mediterranean farming model.

Egas (born in Toledo, Spain), and the other one in the New Spain, proposed by V. de Quiroga, who chose an architectural style coherent with the Franciscan ideals of humbleness and evangelization, which set aside the ornamentation typical of Spanish medieval hospitals rather than palatial monuments built by E. Egas. The "hospital-village" project by V. de Quiroga allowed the patients and their families to live together, which was accepted by pre-Hispanic families that in the time were extensive. The hospital-village, both in its typology and in its health conception, returns to designs already in disuse of the Spanish Middle Age by picking up the idea of a hospital as a multifunctional space in which sanitary attention, nurseries, and shelters for poor people were combined within the church.

    The project FLORAM was formulated at the `Institute for Advanced Studies` of the University of Sao Paulo. It aims at decreasing the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and thus curbing the green-house effect by way of a huge effort of forestation and reforestation. The resulting forests when the trees mature, will be responsible for the absorption of about 6 billion tons of excess carbon. It represents 5 % of the total amount of CO{sub 2} which is in excess in the earth`s atmosphere and represents 5 % of the available continental surfaces which can be forested as well. Therefore, if similar projects are implemented throughout the world, in theory all the exceeding CO{sub 2}, responsible for the `greenhouse effect`, (27 % or 115 billion tons of carbon) would be absorbed. Regarding this fact, there would be a 400 million hectar increase of growing forests. FLORAM in Brazil aims to plant 20.000.000 ha in 2 years at a cost of 20 billion dollars. If it reaches its goals that will mean that Brazil will have reforested an area almost half as big as France. (author)

    2015-07-14

    The objective of the Portunus Project is to create large, automated offshore ports that will the pace and scale of international trade. Additionally, these ports would increase the number of U.S. domestic trade vessels needed, as the imported goods would need to be transported from these offshore platforms to land-based ports such as Boston, Los Angeles, and Newark. Currently, domestic trade in the United States can only be conducted by vessels that abide by the Merchant Marine Act of 1920 – also referred to as the Jones Act. The Jones Act stipulates that vessels involved in domestic trade must be U.S. owned, U.S. built, and manned by a crew made up of U.S. citizens. The Portunus Project would increase the number of Jones Act vessels needed, which raises an interesting economic concern. Are Jones Act ships more expensive to operate than foreign vessels? Would it be more economically efficient to modify the Jones Act and allow vessels manned by foreign crews to engage in U.S. domestic trade? While opposition to altering the Jones Act is strong, it is important to consider the possibility that ship-owners who employ foreign crews will lobby for the chance to enter a growing domestic trade market. Their success would mean potential job loss for thousands of Americans currently employed in maritime trade.

    Hadrontherapy is a highly advanced technique of cancer radiotherapy that uses beams of charged particles (ions) to destroy tumour cells. While conventional X-rays traverse the human body depositing radiation as they pass through, ions deliver most of their energy at one point. Hadrontherapy is most advantageous once the position of the tumour is accurately known, so that healthy tissues can be protected. Accurate positioning is a crucial challenge for targeting moving organs, as in lung cancer, and for adapting the irradiation as the tumour shrinks with treatment. Therefore, quality assurance becomes one of the most relevant issues for an effective outcome of the cancer treatment. In order to improve the quality assurance tools for hadrontherapy, the European Commission is funding ENVISION, a 4-year project that aims at developing solutions for: real-• time non invasive monitoring • quantitative imaging • precise determination of delivered dose • fast feedback for optimal treatment planning • real-t...

    Full Text Available This work aims to approach us the use of "mineral products" in medicine during 16th and 17th centuries. To have an idea about the use of minerals in daily practice, we have studied Juan Fragoso's Libro de los medicamentos simples (1581, and Juan Calvo's Antidotario (1580. We have also checked the presence of these substances in Dioscorides Materia medica, version of Andres Laguna, and the Diccionario de Autoridades. In addition, but not exhaustively, we have followed the used of these products in medicine until the present. This work proves the medical application of about half a hundred of mineral products, the use of which, was coommon in metallurgy, in paintings and vernishes manufacture, in ceramics, in dying industry, etc. However, the physicians of those times, such as Fragoso and Calvo were careful when applying mineral substances due to their great toxicity.

    Este trabajo pretende acercamos al uso de lo que podemos designar como productos pertenecientes al reino mineral, en la medicina científica de los siglos XVI y XVII. Con el fin de hacemos una idea de lo que realmente se utilizaba en la práctica cotidiana, se han estudiado el Libro de los medicamentos simples de Juan Fragoso y el Antidotario de Juan Calvo. Tomando como base los fármacos que en ellos se describen y comentan, hemos comprobado su presencia en la versión de la Materia médica de Dioscórides, de Andrés Laguna, y hemos completado la información con las definiciones del Diccionario de Autoridades. Además de esto, aunque no de forma exhaustiva, hemos seguido el empleo de estas sustancias en medicina hasta la actualidad. El trabajo demuestra el empleo en terapéutica de más de medio centenar de este tipo de productos cuyo uso era habitual en metalurgia, en la fabricación de pinturas y barnices, en cerámica, en tintes, etc. Los médicos de entonces fueron bastante cautelosos al

Se examinan los conceptos que definen la estructura de la neurosis y la perversión en general, como las variedades clínicas que las integran. Se destacan dos momentos: uno en que Lacan opone estas categorías según los ejes anaclítico y narcisista, otro en que abandona este último para pasar a caracterizar la neurosis, al igual que la perversión, respecto del Otro, el goce y el objeto (a. En la transición entre uno y otro se sitúa la fobia como placa giratoria desde la estructura de la perversión hacia alguna forma de neurosis.This paper is aimed to accurately delimit the clinical categories of perversion and neurosis, exactly as Lacan elaborates them in his XVI Seminar, in close connection to the structural notions presented in it.

The concepts that define the neurosis and the perversion are examined in general as well as the clinical varieties that integrate them. Two moments are highlighted: one in which Lacan opposes these categories according to the anaclitical and narcissistic cores, and, the other, in which Lacan abandons this last idea to characterize neurosis, the same as perversion, with regard to the Other, the lust and the (a object. In the transition between one and the other, the phobia is situated as a rotating plate from the perversion structure to some neurosis form.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Autores como Poliakov, Anthony D. Smith o Paul Veyne han escrito páginas muy interesantes sobre los mitos o relatos de origen y el papel que éstos han jugado en el surgimiento de las identidades étnicas y nacionales. En línea con estos trabajos, en el presente ensayo se analiza el mito vasco y la cronología de la formación de los rasgos definitorios de la etnia vasca. El análisis de los relatos de García de Salazar y del Nobiliario del conde don Pedro Alfonso permiten extraer interesantes conclusiones sobre las leyendas de don Zuría, los orígenes de la Casa de Haro y la etnia vasca. Las transformaciones en la sociedad hidalga vizcaína del siglo XVI que motivaron cambios en el enunciado del mito de la batalla de Arrigorríaga, las causas que explican la leyenda del licenciado Andrés de Poza o la reescritura que de ese mismo mito de origen llevará a cabo mucho después el fundador del nacionalismo vasco son otros tantos temas tratados en este artículo. ABSTRACT: Authors such as Poliakov, Anthony D. Smith or Paul Veyne have written some very interesting pages on myths or stories of origins and the roles these have played in the forming of ethnic or national identities. In line with this work, the present essay analyzes the Basque myth and the chronology of the formation of the distinctive traits of the Basque ethnic group. Analysis of the stories of García de Salazar and of the genealogical work of Conde Don Pedro Alfonso allows us to draw interesting conclusions about the legends of Don Zuría, the origins of the House of Haro and the Basque ethnic group. The transformations in the noble society of Biscay in the 16th century that motivated changes in the telling of the myth of the Battle of Arrigoriaga, the causes explaining the legend of the gradúate Andrés de Poza or the rewriting of the same myth of origin that the founder of Basque nationalism would undertake much later are some of the other topics dealt with in this

    The RESOLVE project is a lunar prospecting mission whose primary goal is to characterize water and other volatiles in lunar regolith. The Lunar Advanced Volatiles Analysis (LAVA) subsystem is comprised of a fluid subsystem that transports flow to the gas chromatograph- mass spectrometer (GC-MS) instruments that characterize volatiles and the Water Droplet Demonstration (WDD) that will capture and display water condensation in the gas stream. The LAVA Engineering Test Unit (ETU) is undergoing risk reduction testing this summer and fall within a vacuum chamber to understand and characterize C!Jmponent and integrated system performance. Ray will be assisting with component testing of line heaters, printed circuit heaters, pressure transducers, temperature sensors, regulators, and valves in atmospheric and vacuum environments. He will be developing procedures to guide these tests and test reports to analyze and draw conclusions from the data. In addition, he will gain experience with preparing a vacuum chamber with fluid and electrical connections. Further testing will include integrated testing of the fluid subsystem with the gas supply system, near-infrared spectrometer, WDD, Sample Delivery System, and GC-MS in the vacuum chamber. This testing will provide hands-on exposure to a flight forward spaceflight subsystem, the processes associated with testing equipment in a vacuum chamber, and experience working in a laboratory setting. Examples of specific analysis Ray will conduct include: pneumatic analysis to calculate the WOO's efficiency at extracting water vapor from the gas stream to form condensation; thermal analysis of the conduction and radiation along a line connecting two thermal masses; and proportional-integral-derivative (PID) heater control analysis. In this Research and Technology environment, Ray will be asked to problem solve real-time as issues arise. Since LAVA is a scientific subsystem, Ray will be utilizing his chemical engineering background to

    Full Text Available Modern management theory treats all complex tasks and duties like projects and make these projects possible to be managed by a particular organizational-management concept in order to achieve a goal effectively. A large number of jobs and tasks performed in the system of defense or for defense purposes have the characteristics of projects. Project management is both a skill and a science of monitoring human, material, financial, energy and other resources to achieve required objectives within the given limits: deadlines, time, budget, possibility of realization and the satisfaction of the interests of all project participants. Project management is a traditional area of applied (or functional management focused on managing complex and uncertain situations with defined goals. Introduction In conditions of rapid change and high uncertainty, only adaptive organizations survive, i. e. those that are able not only to react quickly to changes but also to proactively take advantage of changes. Development of project management The biggest influence on the development of the area had complex jobs within the engineering profession. In parallel with the traditional approach new approaches began to develop, while the traditional one still remained in use. Contrary to the traditional engineering approach, a dynamic model first developed in order to respond to demands for greater control of costs. Project management Project management is a skill and knowledge of human and material resources to achieve set objectives within prescribed limits: deadlines, time, budget, possibility of realization, and the satisfaction of all participants in the project.

    Plans and stories are two different ways of communicating about projects. Project plans are formalized descriptions, primarily supporting coordination. Project stories are accounts whose primary function is emotional appeal. Project stories influence the projects’ chances of success. Therefore...... project managers should not only be concerned with project plans, but also with project stories. In this paper we explore some basic principles for transforming project plans into appealing stories. We discuss what may happen to stories once they are released into public space. And we illustrate how...... the possibilities of telling favorable stories may have repercussions on the project planning....

    We present the first results based on Planck measurements of the CMB temperature and lensing-potential power spectra. The Planck spectra at high multipoles are extremely well described by the standard spatially-flat six-parameter LCDM cosmology. In this model Planck data determine the cosmological parameters to high precision. We find a low value of the Hubble constant, H0=67.3+/-1.2 km/s/Mpc and a high value of the matter density parameter, Omega_m=0.315+/-0.017 (+/-1 sigma errors) in excellent agreement with constraints from baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) surveys. Including curvature, we find that the Universe is consistent with spatial flatness to percent-level precision using Planck CMB data alone. We present results from an analysis of extensions to the standard cosmology, using astrophysical data sets in addition to Planck and high-resolution CMB data. None of these models are favoured significantly over standard LCDM. The deviation of the scalar spectral index from unity is insensitive to the additi...

    Full Text Available It is described and studied several ceramic compositions (16th century of Cultural Heritage, in the church of Convento Madre de Dios (Sevilla. It is dealed with the so-called “frontal de altar”, and two ceramic panels at the side, made by the technic of polychrome plated tiles (size 12,5 x 12,5 cm. This ceramic work is inspired in the Apocalipsis. They are located under an altarpiece in wood dedicated to St. John the Evangelist. The present study has allowed to evaluate highly its interest and singularity from both the historical-artistic and ceramology points of views, with models scarcely frequent or unknown in Ceramic Art, in general, and particularly at Sevilla. The conservation state of the ceramic composition in the frontal de altar was also investigated, being not so good due to their remarkable deterioration. It is discussed the documentation that exists concerning this artistic work, and the proofs of the author by a signature (AV.GTSA:FA, which is attributed to Cristóbal de Augusta. Finally, it has been performed a virtual re-construction of the scene represented at the ceramic frontal de altar. For this purpose, digital photography and data treatment using computer methods have been applied. From all these results, it has been designed a proposal to take part in this artwork for a next possible restauration.

    Se describen y estudian una serie de composiciones cerámicas del Patrimonio Histórico-Artístico y Cultural (siglo XVI que existen en la iglesia del Convento Madre de Dios de Sevilla. Se trata del denominado frontal de altar y dos paneles laterales, realizados mediante la técnica del azulejo plano polícromo (12,5 x 12,5 cm. Son de temática apocalíptica y están ubicados debajo de un retablo de madera dedicado a San Juan Evangelista. El estudio llevado a cabo ha permitido apreciar su interés y singularidad desde el punto de vista histórico-artístico y ceramológico, con modelos poco frecuentes o desconocidos en

    1. Project management skills are important to develop because occupational and environmental health nurses are increasingly asked to implement and manage health related projects and programs. 2. Project management is the process of planning and managing project tasks and resources, and communicating the progress and results. This requires the coordination of time, tasks, equipment, people, and budget. 3. Three main critical skill areas are needed to be an effective project manager: behavioral skills such as negotiation, conflict resolution, and interpersonal problem solving; use of project management tools to manage project tasks and resources; and effective communication skills.

    CERN Document Server

    Carrying out a project as planned is not a guarantee for success. Projects may fail because project management does not take the requirements, wishes and concerns of stakeholders sufficiently into account. Projects can only be successful though contributions from stakeholders. And in the end, it is the stakeholders that evaluate whether they find that the project is a success. To manage stakeholders effectively, you need to know your stakeholders, their behaviours and attitudes towards the project. In Project Stakeholder Management, the authors give guidance on how to adopt an analytical and s

    Creating value has been outlined as very central to projects applying the organizational perspective to projects. It has been suggested that value is created in value constellations or project networks, where actors work together to create value. However, research on the value creation process...... in value constellations is scarce, and through an exploratory study of two project networks in a cultural setting we investigate how value is created in value constellations. We outline how each project may be a distinct type of value constellation, one project creates value for the partners of the network...... as a consortium, and the project creates value primarily for others as a facilitator....

    Selecting the right IT projects is increasingly important for many organizations. Project portfolio managers play a key role during project selection, but even though they have a great impact on the selection process, we have little knowledge about how they decide which projects to recommend...... for initiation. Most of the research on project selection is normative, suggesting new methods, but available empirical studies indicate that many methods are seldom used in practice. This paper addresses the issue by providing increased understanding of IT project selection practice, thereby facilitating...... the development of methods that better fit current practice. The study is based on naturalistic decision-making theory and interviews with experienced project portfolio managers who, when selecting projects, primarily rely on political skills, experience and personal networks rather than on formal IT project...

This comparative study considers two groups of projects: technical assistance (TA projects versus information technology (IT projects. The aim is to explore the size and structure of the project teams – according to the team formation and its lifecycle, and to identify some distinctive attributes of the project teams – both similarities and differences between the above mentioned types of projects. Distinct focus of the research is on the multiculturalism of the project teams: how the cultural background of the team members influences the team performance and team management. Besides the results of the study are the managerial implications: how the team managers could soften the cultural clash, and avoid inter-cultural misunderstandings and even conflicts – in order to get a better performance.

    Organizations that follow the principles of good Earned Value Management (EVM) create an environment that allows teams to successfully operate and thrive ? even in the face of challenges that could negatively impact their projects. Earned Value Project Management (EVPM) is a methodology used to measure and communicate the real physical progress of a project taking into account the work completed, the time taken and the costs incurred to complete that work. As a result, EVPM allows more educated and effective management decision-making, which helps evaluate and control project risk by measuring project progress in monetary terms. In the first two editions of Earned Value Project Management, Quentin W. Fleming and Joel M. Koppelman provided guidance for project management practitioners already familiar with EVPM, was well as those who were new to the use of this technique. The third edition expanded the information available on of EVPM for medium and smaller projects while still being relevant for larger projec...

    Full Text Available The present article is aimed at developing a set of recommendations for achieving a higher level of organizational project maturity at a given enterprise. Methodology. For the purposes of the current research, the available information sources on the components of project management system are analysed; the essence of “organizational maturity” and the existing models of organizational maturity are studied. The method of systemic and structural analysis, as well as the method of logical generalization, are employed in order to study the existing models of organizational maturity, to describe levels of organizational maturity, and finally to develop a set of methodological recommendations for achieving a higher level of organizational project maturity at a given enterprise. The results of the research showed that the core elements of project management system are methodological, organizational, programtechnical, and motivational components. Project management encompasses a wide range of issues connected with organizational structure, project team, communication management, project participants, etc. However, the fundamental basis for developing project management concept within a given enterprise starts with defining its level of organizational maturity. The present paper describes various models of organizational maturity (staged, continuous, petal-shaped and their common types (H. Кеrzner Organizational Maturity Model, Berkeley PM Maturity Model, Organizational Project Management Maturity Model, Portfolio, Program & Project Management Maturity Model. The analysis of available theoretic works showed that the notion “organizational project maturity” refers to the capability of an enterprise to select projects and manage them with the intention of achieving its strategic goals in the most effective way. Importantly, the level of maturity can be improved by means of formalizing the acquired knowledge, regulating project-related activities

  8. Underestimation of Project Costs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jones, Harry W.

    2015-01-01

    Large projects almost always exceed their budgets. Estimating cost is difficult and estimated costs are usually too low. Three different reasons are suggested: bad luck, overoptimism, and deliberate underestimation. Project management can usually point to project difficulty and complexity, technical uncertainty, stakeholder conflicts, scope changes, unforeseen events, and other not really unpredictable bad luck. Project planning is usually over-optimistic, so the likelihood and impact of bad luck is systematically underestimated. Project plans reflect optimism and hope for success in a supposedly unique new effort rather than rational expectations based on historical data. Past project problems are claimed to be irrelevant because "This time it's different." Some bad luck is inevitable and reasonable optimism is understandable, but deliberate deception must be condemned. In a competitive environment, project planners and advocates often deliberately underestimate costs to help gain project approval and funding. Project benefits, cost savings, and probability of success are exaggerated and key risks ignored. Project advocates have incentives to distort information and conceal difficulties from project approvers. One naively suggested cure is more openness, honesty, and group adherence to shared overall goals. A more realistic alternative is threatening overrun projects with cancellation. Neither approach seems to solve the problem. A better method to avoid the delusions of over-optimism and the deceptions of biased advocacy is to base the project cost estimate on the actual costs of a large group of similar projects. Over optimism and deception can continue beyond the planning phase and into project execution. Hard milestones based on verified tests and demonstrations can provide a reality check.

    To add value to project performance and help obtain project success, a new framework for decision making in projects is defined. It introduces the project decision chain inspired by the supply chain thinking in the manufacturing sector and uses three types of decisions: authorization, selection......, and plan decision. A primitive decision element is defined where all the three decision types can be accommodated. Each task in the primitive element can in itself contain subtasks that in turn will comprise new primitive elements. The primitive elements are nested together in a project decision chain....

The web page (http://www.jasondavies.com/maps/transition pre­sents a world map with graticule and country borders in the oblique Aitoff projection, with the South Pole. The map is not static, but animated. The South Pole moves toward the bottom and Earth rotates around its poles. The animation lasts five seconds, after which the projection changes and movement continues for five seconds, after which the projection changes again. Names of projections appear in a separate window. There are a total of 56 projections. The South Pole eventually becomes invisible and the North Pole appears at the top. Various parts of Earth appear in the center of the map by rotating around the poles.

  15. The Project of Success

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Kreiner, Kristian

    . To the extent that project success becomes a matter of meeting the explicit targets, it loses its relevance as independent phenomenon. For that reason, perhaps, project success is hardly ever discussed in the project management literature. However, empirical studies demonstrate that project success is a much...... more complicated matter than meeting targets. While success may ultimately be justified in terms of a correspondence between aims and achievements, the understanding of both aspects is highly dependent on the project process. An example of a successful project that did not meet the original performance...... targets will serve to show that success is at matter of perspective as much as it is a matter of achievement. Other types of research, e.g. social psychology, have addressed the issue of success more explicitly. I draw on such literature to conceptualize project success anew and to reestablish...

    1980-01-01

    The ASEAN Population Expert Group met in Manila and was followed by a meeting of the ASEAN heads of population programs, during the period November 5-10, 1979. Heads of population programs from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines attended. The meetings were held to review progress-to-date on phase 1 projects and to consider the development of an expanded population program. 5 projects funded by UNFPA are reviewed in tabular form with the project, the sponsoring country, date of implementation, data analysis, and date of completion. Suggestions were made for improving and extending these projects and it was also suggested that all projects being developed and proposed should include a section on use of research. 7 new projects were proposed as phase 2 projects. The 1st, sponsored by Malaysia, deals with women in development; project 2, lead by Thailand, will investigate population movement and its effect on development; project 3, led by the Philippines, will develop and strengthen national population information systems and networks in ASEAN countries; project 4, led by Indonesia, is directed towards institutional development and exchanges of personnel; project 5, led by the Philippines, will examine population and development dynamics and the man/resources balance; project 6, led by Thailand, will develop ASEAN social indicators; and project 7, led by Indonesia and Malaysia, will make a comprehensive analysis of existing medical/health care and family planning systems. It was recommended that an executive director of the proposed ASEAN population coordination unit should be appointed to expedite the recommendations of the meeting related to preparation and submission of phase 2 project proposals.

    The Project Surveillance and Maintenance Plan (PSMP) describes the procedures that will be used by the US Department of Energy (DOE), or other agency as designated by the President to verify that inactive uranium tailings disposal facilities remain in compliance with licensing requirements and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for remedial actions. The PSMP will be used as a guide for the development of individual Site Surveillance and Maintenance Plans (part of a license application) for each of the UMTRA Project sites. The PSMP is not intended to provide minimum requirements but rather to provide guidance in the selection of surveillance measures. For example, the plan acknowledges that ground-water monitoring may or may not be required and provides the (guidance) to make this decision. The Site Surveillance and Maintenance Plans (SSMPs) will form the basis for the licensing of the long-term surveillance and maintenance of each UMTRA Project site by the NRC. Therefore, the PSMP is a key milestone in the licensing process of all UMTRA Project sites. The Project Licensing Plan (DOE, 1984a) describes the licensing process. 11 refs., 22 figs., 8 tabs.

    Originally started in 2012 as the Betelgeuse Project, interest in the other bright stars of Orion soon expanded the Project stars to include a total of six of the brightest stars in Orion. The name was then changed to the Orion Project. Orion is one of the most famous constellations. Its declination along the celestial equator is such that it is visible from most of northern and southern hemispheres. In addition, the stars of Orion are very bright and interesting. The Orion Project now includes the stars Betelgeuse, Rigel, Saiph and the three stars of Orion's belt, Mintaka, Alnilam and Alnitak. The projects objectives are both to help the observer produce quality photometric and spectroscopic data and to produce archival quality photometric (BVRIJH bands) and spectroscopy (low, mid and high-resolution) data. This paper is a summary of the Orion Project status.

A lo largo del trabajo se argumentará que la interacción entre fuentes escritas y materiales es tan necesaria como peligrosa y que debe estar acompañada siempre de un proceso de razonamiento crítico que permita construir discursos más contingentes y menos sesgados. Todo ello será ilustrado mediante un estudio de caso centrado en el análisis de la identidad de los marinos vascos que se aventuraron en las pesquerías de Canadá. Se argumentará que la visión dominante se basa sobre todo en la documentación escrita y que la cultura material está proponiendo nuevos marcos interpretativos.

  6. Intestinal parasite analysis in organic sediments collected from a 16th-century Belgian archeological site Análise de parasitos intestinais em sedimentos orgânicos coletados de sítio arqueológico belga do século XVI

    Full Text Available Parasite eggs found in organic remains collected from medieval structures in Raversijde (medieval name: Walraversijde, a village on the northern coast of Belgium, are discussed. The eggs were identified as Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura, both human parasites. Species identification allowed elucidating the origin of the organic sediments and the structures, in this case latrines used by humans. Capillaria sp. and free-living nematode larvae were also found in the latrine. Although neither parasite burden nor prevalence rates could be measured, the abundance of human intestinal parasite eggs indicated a high infection rate in the village residents, reflecting very poor sanitation.Este artigo discute os achados de ovos de parasitos em vestígios orgânicos de estruturas medievais do século XVI, escavados no solo, encontrados em Walraversijde, vilarejo atualmente denominado Raversijde, litoral norte da Bélgica. Nestas estruturas encontraram-se numerosos ovos de Ascaris lumbricoides e Trichuris trichiura, ambos parasitos humanos. Neste trabalho, o diagnóstico dos parasitos serviu para identificar a origem humana do sedimento e as estruturas medievais como latrinas. Encontraram-se outros ovos de parasito identificado como Capillaria sp. e larvas de nematódeos. Embora não tenha sido possível calcular cargas parasitárias, a quantidade de ovos de helmintos intestinais, parasitos de humanos, sugere condições precárias de higiene e altos níveis de infecção.

    This paper proposes the adoption of a project-based view to analyze strategy formation and strategic renewal over time. Projects are resource-committing, empirically-tracable investments, and as such, particularly suitable for the analysis of different manifestations of intended strategies as well...... as post-hoc manifestations of deviant, even rebellious, actions taken in opposition to the initial strategy announcement. The paper presents an analytical framework (a 5x2 matrix) of ten different project categories that together allows researchers to investigate how strategic renewal is realized through...... the enactment of different types of project initiatives throughout the organization. The developed framework is validated by two field studies that outline the robustness of the proposed matrix. In addition to the demonstration of the advantages of the framework, we discuss the limitations of the strategy-as-projects...

    This report describes the progress of five different projects. The first is an enzyme immobilization study of cellulase to reduce costs of the cellulosic ethanol process. High reusability and use of substrates applicable to large scale production were focus areas for this study. The second project was the development of nanostructured catalysts for conversion of syngas to diesel. Cobalt nanowire catalyst was used in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The third project describes work on developing a microfluidic calorimeter to measure reaction rates of enzymes. The fourth project uses inorganic polymer binders that have the advantage of a lower carbon footprint than Portland cement while also providing excellent performance in elevated temperature, high corrosion resistance, high compressive and tensile strengths, and rapid strength gains. The fifth project investigates the potential of turbines in drop structures (such as sewer lines in tall buildings) to recover energy.

    CERN Document Server

    Moran, Robert T

    2008-01-01

    This book is a must-read for anyone responsible for projects and initiatives that span functional and geographical divides. Authors Moran and Youngdahl bring extensive experience and learning from industry practice to present a clear and straightforward treatment of the leadership skills and knowledge required to lead projects that are global in nature. They have written the first book of its kind to address the three essential skills of global project leaders - strategic project management, project leadership, and cross-cultural leadership. The authors argue that global project leadership is an essential skill in our project-based world and that we are all either intentional or accidental project leaders. Intentional project leaders pursue formal project management education and even certification whereas accidental project leaders find themselves leading global projects and initiatives as a result of a special assignment or promotion. Moran and Youndahl have found that the vast majority of global projects ...

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Short, J.

    1997-02-01

    The author describes the efforts being made toward pollution prevention within the DOE complex, as a way to reduce overall project costs, in addition to decreasing the amount of waste to be handled. Pollution prevention is a concept which is trying to be ingrained into project planning. Part of the program involves the concept that ultimately the responsibility for waste comes back to the generator. Parts of the program involve efforts to reuse materials and equipment on new projects, to recycle wastes to generate offsetting revenue, and to increase awareness, accountability and incentives so as to stimulate action on this plan. Summaries of examples are presented in tables.

    This project is a great benefit to the City of Perth Amboy by saving energy and savings costs. The project serves as a great example to city residents about the importance of renewable energy, energy conservation and other environmental topics. An electronic display in the City Hall shows how much energy was generated on that day, how much energy is saved, and environmental benefits. The project serves to educate people of environmental concerns and may spark the interest of individuals in other environmental topics. Hopefully, other residents will be encouraged to use solar energy. The project is also saving money for the City and its taxpayers. Anywhere we can save money means that residents can pay less in taxes and/or the City can provide improved services.

    The Kintyre Uranium Project is being developed by Canning Resources Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Rio Tinto (formerly CRA). The work on the project includes the planning and management of a number of background environmental studies. The company has also commissioned studies by external consultants into process technologies, mining strategies and techniques for extracting the uranium ore from the waste rock. In addition, Canning Resources has made a detailed assessment of the worldwide market potential for Australian uranium in the late 1990s and into the 21st century. The most significant factor affecting the future of this project is the current product price. This price is insufficient to justify the necessary investment to bring this project into production. 8 figs.

    Johnson, S

    1999-08-01

    This paper criticizes the quick system proposed by Henk Moll for evaluating microfinance projects in the article ¿How to Pre-Evaluate Credit Projects in Ten Minutes¿. The author contended that there is a need to emphasize the objectives of the project. The procedure used by Moll, he contended, is applicable only to projects that have only two key objectives, such as credit operations, and the provision of services. Arguments are presented on the three specific questions proposed by Moll, ranging from the availability of externally audited financial reports, the performance of interest rate on loans vis-a-vis the inflation rate, and the provision of loans according to the individual requirements of the borrowers. Lastly, the author emphasizes that the overall approach is not useful and suggests that careful considerations should be observed in the use or abuse of a simple scoring system or checklist such as the one proposed by Moll.

    2010-09-30

    The Mississippi CCS Project is a proposed large-scale industrial carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project which would have demonstrated advanced technologies to capture and sequester carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}) emissions from industrial sources into underground formations. Specifically, the Mississippi CCS Project was to accelerate commercialization of large-scale CO{sub 2} storage from industrial sources by leveraging synergy between a proposed petcoke to Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) plant that is selected for a Federal Loan Guarantee and would be the largest integrated anthropogenic CO{sub 2} capture, transport, and monitored sequestration program in the U.S. Gulf Coast Region. The Mississippi CCS Project was to promote the expansion of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana region which would supply greater energy security through increased domestic energy production. The capture, compression, pipeline, injection, and monitoring infrastructure would have continued to sequester CO{sub 2} for many years after the completion of the term of the DOE agreement. The objectives of this project were expected to be fulfilled through two distinct phases. The overall objective of Phase 1 was to develop a fully definitive project basis for a competitive Renewal Application process to proceed into Phase 2 - Design, Construction and Operations. Phase 1 included the studies that establish the engineering design basis for the capture, compression and transportation of CO{sub 2} from the MG SNG Project, and the criteria and specifications for a monitoring, verification and accounting (MVA) plan at the Soso oil field in Mississippi. The overall objective of Phase 2, was to execute design, construction and operations of three capital projects: the CO{sub 2} capture and compression equipment, the Mississippi CO{sub 2} Pipeline to Denbury's Free State Pipeline, and an MVA system at the Soso oil field.

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available A complete definition of the scope of a project upfront during early stages ensures smooth and successful implementation during the project execution. This research identifies and prioritises project scope definition elements for public buildings in Saudi Arabia. Elements that could significantly contribute to complete project scope definition package at pre-project planning stage are identified and their interrelationship determined and prioritised. Using the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI as a basis, the study uses analytical network process (ANP technique based on data obtained from project managers who have been involved in public sector projects in Saudi Arabia. Data collection and analysis was conducted in three steps. The first step involved identification of scope definition elements while the second involved an investigation into interrelationships among the elements. In the third step, ANP was used to determine the weight of the elements’ importance in terms of contribution to project scope definition completeness. Finally, Pareto analysis was used to prioritise and assess the distribution pattern of the elements. The outcome from this research is the prioritisation of project scope definition elements for public building projects in Saudi Arabia. The prioritised list developed indicates the importance of project scope definition elements. It should help project management teams identify elements to consider when evaluating project scope definition for completeness at the pre-project planning stage.
