    Full Text Available Objetivo. Determinar la prevalencia de hábito tabáquico por categoría laboral en trabajadores de la salud del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS, en el estado de Morelos, México. Material y métodos. Se realizó un estudio transversal en 3 133 empleados de los servicios médicos de las 23 unidades médicas con que cuenta la delegación Morelos del IMSS, durante el periodo de octubre de 1998 a marzo de 2000. Mediante un cuestionario autoaplicable se recolectó información sobre patrones de consumo de tabaco en distintas etapas de la vida, así como algunas características demográficas y categoría laboral. Se estimaron prevalencias e intervalos de confianza al 95% por grupos de edad y sexo para distintas categorías laborales. Resultados. De los 3 133 empleados participantes, 53.4% (IC 95% 50.8-56.8 de los hombres y 27.4% (IC 95% 25.4-29.3 de las mujeres contaban con historia de tabaquismo en algún momento de la vida. La prevalencia de tabaquismo activo fue de 28.3 % (IC 95% 25.6-31.0 y 14.4% (IC 95% 12.8-15.9 en hombres y mujeres, respectivamente. Entre los hombres, los médicos presentan una prevalencia de tabaquismo activo menor (20.9% que la observada entre trabajadores de otras áreas: personal administrativo (33.0% y personal técnico de distintas categorías (26.6%.

    Zárate, Arturo; Basurto-Acevedo, Lourdes

    2013-01-01

    Medical research in the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social has been considered one of the most important in this country for quality and quantity. Thanks to the work and leadership of Benito Coquet, who initiated the building of the National Medical Center in 1961, and the work of two pillars of research, Luis Castelazo and Bernardo Sepúlveda, the Institute successfully improved scientific research. In the years that followed, the Institute fostered the professionalization of research, the creation of research units in different areas of science, the incorporation of consolidated groups of researchers, the relationship with other institutions, the incorporation to the Sistema Nacional de Investigadores, the editing of a journal to expose outside the work done within the Institute, and the formation of a trust to raise funds for financing. Thanks to all that, institutional research strengthened in all lines, and it was placed first, at certain times, at the national level.

    The journals of medicine arose as a communication tool more than 200 years ago. At the beginning, their nature was local; later, their aim was to spread medical information along the nation; and, finally, they sought to reach the world distribution. The Revista Médica del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social was published for the first time 52 years ago, and it has walked its way from local to international distribution. This journal has 23 000 subscribers, it is included in Medline and it reached a 0.112 SCImago Journal Rank in 2012. Its website receives around 200 000 visits monthly and 45 % are foreign visits. In the future, the peer review system is going to be strengthened, and the journal is going to offer audio, video, and applications to reinforce interactive participation between authors, readers in order to reach modernity and draw young new attention.

Los conflictos sociales originados en las demandas laborales por compensación pecuniaria a causa de Accidentes de Trabajo y Enfermedad Profesional (ATEP se salían del ámbito de la empresa y le correspondía al Gobierno responder por estas solicitudes; de manera indirecta se estaba contribuyendo a generar un clima de paz conveniente para lograr las metas de crecimiento económico.

    There has been interest in the Division of Special Projects in Health to offer the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social personnel resources for training and quality thereby respond to potential contingencies. Presented here is their experience in this field. To describe and analyse the productivity in different training programs in emergencies and disasters developed by the Division of Special Projects in Health, Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS). Observational study in which different training activities conducted by the Division of Special Projects in Health between 1989 and 2014 are described. Descriptive statistics were used. In these 25 years have trained 20,674 participants; 19.451 IMSS and 1,223 other health institutions. The most productive courses were life support (BLS/ACLS) (47.17%), distance courses "Hospital medical evacuation plans and units" (14.17%), the workshop-run "Evacuation of hospital units with an emphasis on critical areas" (5.93%) and course "Programme Evaluators of Hospital Insurance" (8.43%). Although the Special Projects Division Health has primarily operational functions, it nevertheless has neglected its responsibility to maintain constantly trained and updated institute staff that every day is in a position to face any type of emergency and disaster. This increases the chance that the answer to any contingency is more organised and of higher quality, always to the benefit of the population. Copyright © 2015 Academia Mexicana de Cirugía A.C.

    There are barriers and enablers for the implementation of Rapid Response Teams in obstetric hospitals. The enabling factors were determined at Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) MATERIAL AND METHODS: An observational, retrospective study was conducted by analysing the emergency obstetric reports sent by mobile technology and e-mail to the Medical Care Unit of the IMSS in 2013. Frequency and mean was obtained using the Excel 2010 program for descriptive statistics. A total of 164,250 emergency obstetric cases were reported, and there was a mean of 425 messages per day, of which 32.2% were true obstetric emergencies and required the Rapid Response team. By e-mail, there were 73,452 life threatening cases (a mean of 6 cases per day). A monthly simulation was performed in hospitals (480 in total). Enabling factors were messagés synchronisation among the participating personnel,the accurate record of the obstetrics, as well as the simulations performed by the operational staff. The most common emergency was pre-eclampsia-eclampsia with 3,351 reports, followed by obstetric haemorrhage with 2,982 cases. The enabling factors for the implementation of a rapid response team at IMSS were properly timed communication between the central delegation teams, as they allowed faster medical and administrative management and participation of hospital medical teams in the process. Mobile technology has increased the speed of medical and administrative management in emergency obstetric care. However, comparative studies are needed to determine the statistical significance.

    Full Text Available El Seguro como institución ofrece protección y cobertura frente a la materialización de riesgos a cambio del pago de una prima, pudiendo así articularse como una herramienta de protección social. La Sentencia del Tribunal de Justicia Europeo de 1 de marzo de 2011 impide que ya en el ejercicio 2013 las primas de seguro utilicen la variable sexo como herramienta dentro de la valoración de riesgos y determinación de precios, dando lugar a una situación que, tal y como aquí se expone e independientemente de sus efectos económicos para aseguradoras y asegurados, se plantea de forma no muy acertada y distante de los objetivos que pretende cumplir. The insurance offers protection and coverage against the materialisation of risks in exchange for a premium and it can be defined as a tool of social protection. The judgment of the European Court of Justice of 1 March 2011 prevents that insurance premiums are based on the variable “sex” as a tool in risk assessment and pricing, leading to a situation which, regardless of their economic impact on insurers and policyholders, is unfortunate and away from the objectives it seeks to comply.

    Chikungunya fever (CHIK) generally causes temporary sick leave, affecting groups of productive age, which represents a significant economic impact from the labor point of view. The objective was to estimate costs of disability due to chikungunya in the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) in Guerrero, Mexico. Cost assessment of working population from IMSS in Guerrero who met the definition of case for CHIK and took sick leave, which was registered in the Original Disability Certificates (OCI, according to its initials in Spanish) processed from January to April, 2015. Paid sick days were multiplied by the current minimum wage of the municipality of Acapulco (geographical area A, general = $ 70.10: seventy pesos with 10 cents per day]). Of all the OCIs, 31.5% (38 271/12 062) met the criteria for CHIK with a total of 41 197 prescribed days and 14 941 paid sick days with an estimated cost of 2 397 393.40 pesos (two million, three hundred and ninety seven thousand, three hundred and ninety three dollars and forty cents). Sick leaves increase the costs in health systems. These costs increase as increases the number of days granted. The average number of days granted is consistent with the information published in different articles.

    The following is a reconstruction of the dietary patterns of 24 residents of Yautepec, Morelos which in pre hispanic times was one of the tributary towns of the Mexicas tribe, during the Late Pos classic period (1350-1521 a.C.). The analysis included samples of humerus, femur, tibia and fibula from human skeletons. The applied technique was X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRF) to establish the mineral concentrations, which are closely related with the quality and quantity of the diet. The main indicative elements are strontium (Sr), denoting the ingestion of vegetables, zinc (Zn), indicating the ingestion of animal proteins, and magnesium (Mg), associated with cereals. The results indicate differences in the diet among individuals from the same population, probably determined by social stratification. (Author)

El objetivo del presente trabajo fue documentar el proceso de conformación de los paisajes turísticos configurados a lo largo de la costa, a partir de las confrontaciones entre los actores sociales durante el periodo de transición, que va de la crisis del modelo de sustitución de importaciones al neoliberal en el que este lugar, junto con sus recursos naturales, transitó de la apropiación estatal a la propiedad privada. Aquí se retomaron las aportaciones teórico metodológicas de diversos autores, que permitieron comprender las transformaciones del paisaje en el contexto de la confrontación social.

    Full Text Available Over the last thirty-five years, Mexico has maintained a trade liberalization policy which has depressed food production and has reconstructed the structure of the agri-food sector; this has generated a higher food dependence and insecurity. In order to face this structural change, new organizational and socio-productive dynamics have emerged in communities, which take into consideration food diversity, heritage and cultural conditions of rural areas. In this paper, we use the theoretical approach of Localized Agrifood Systems (LAFS and the operative concepts of governance and social innovation to analyze and understand the efforts that at the base of society are created to grant development of productive systems. Therefore, we present the results of an investigation based on the exploration of two LAFS cases; in these cases, different strategies to achieve development have been established: the elaboration of artisanal cheese in the state of Hidalgo, and the production of rice in the state of Morelos, Mexico. Research results show the importance of concepts such as Social Innovation (SI and Governance within the framework of localized agri-food systems in rural studies, this, in order to identify the needs and potentials of family farming and producer’s groups inside the new contexts generated by globalization and market liberation process.

    Healthcare systems are organized following one of two basic models: social security systems, which link access to health services to labor status, and national health systems, which grant access to health as a citizen's right. Mexico adopted, since the institutionalization of social security and healthcare services in 1943, a mixed system. Social security institutions covered the salaried workers and public assistance was granted to the remaining of the population. At the beginning of the XXI century the Mexican health system entered a crisis as the conditions to expand health coverage through social security were not met and public assistance services were insufficient. In order to address these developments, the Healthcare Social Protection System was founded (2004) as a mechanism to effectively guarantee every person's right to health as established after the constitutional amendment of article fourth in 1983. Seguro Popular is the mechanism that through federal and states' contributions seeks to financially protect the population without access to social security's health services, and thus prevent impoverishment due to out of pocket and catastrophic health expenditures.

    The purpose of mammography has been to provide the contrast between the lesion and adjacent healthy tissue of the breast. The quality control which should be performed in mammography services is essential to obtain the necessary contrast in mammography and thus achieve a prompt detection of breast lesions. The quality control program has helped to obtain exact diagnosis in mammography and has contributed to reduce mortality from breast cancer in Costa Rica. The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) has sought to improve the quality of mammograms performed in the different health centers by implementing quality control programs in the services. The evaluation of the physical parameters has had as aim to perform an assessment of the equipment used in mammography facilities. The image quality, dosimetry, optical density, performance, accuracy and repeatability of voltage applied to the tube, filtration and Half-value layer in system of screen film mammography have been evaluated. The usefulness of quality control programs and needs of the services to implement a pilot plan for breast screening, can be seen when comparing the obtained results. The protocol of Mammography Quality Control, TECDOC 1517 from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is implemented with this project and the associated software in four of the six hospitals evaluated in this study.

    A monitoring program of the occupational exposure by incorporation of radioactive material is proposed. Nuclear medicine services of the Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social (CCSS) are evaluated. The monitoring program is based on the provisions of the International Atomic Energy Agency and of study of nuclear medicine services of the CCSS. Radionuclides are determined for monitoring of the occupational exposure, according to the radioactive material that is worked in nuclear medicine services of the CCSS. The appropriate and alternative techniques are established for the monitoring of the occupational exposure by incorporation of radioactive material, depending on the type of radionuclide that is worked in nuclear medicine services. The worker occupationally exposed (TOE) should be subject of monitoring and how often should be realized the monitoring of the occupational exposure. The monitoring of the radiation by radioactive material must be applied to personnel working in radiopharmacies and the worker has carried out therapeutic procedures for handling of significant amounts of 13 1 I. The calculation of the committed effective dose is proposed by incorporation of radioactive material with the TOE [es

    The objective of this article is to present the frequency of cancer in Mexican children who were treated in the hospitals of the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social in Mexico City (IMSS-MC) in the period 1996–2001. The Registry of Cancer in Children, started in 1996 in the IMSS-MC, is an on-going, prospective register. The data from 1996 through 2001 were analyzed and the different types of cancer were grouped according to the International Classification for Cancer in Children (ICCC). From this analysis, the general and specific frequencies by age and by sex were obtained for the different groups of neoplasms. Also, the frequency of the stage of the disease that had been diagnosed in cases of children with solid tumors was obtained. A total of 1,702 new cases of children with cancer were registered, with the male/female ratio at 1.1/1. Leukemias had the highest frequency with 784 cases (46.1%) and, of these, acute lymphoblastic leukemias were the most prevalent with 614 cases (78.3%). Thereafter, in descending order of frequency, were tumors of the central nervous system (CNST) with 197 cases (11.6%), lymphomas with 194 cases (11.4%), germinal cell tumors with 110 cases (6.5%), and bone tumors with 97 cases (5.7%). The highest frequency of cancer was found in the group of one to four year-olds that had 627 cases (36.8%). In all the age groups, leukemias were the most frequent. In the present work, the frequency of Hodgkin's disease (~4%) was found to be lower than that (~10%) in previous studies and the frequency of tumors of the sympathetic nervous system was low (2.3%). Of those cases of solid tumors for which the stage of the disease had been determined, 66.9% were diagnosed as being Stage III or IV. The principal cancers in the children treated in the IMSS-MC were leukemias, CNST, and lymphomas, consistent with those reported by developed countries. A 2.5-fold reduction in the frequency of Hodgkin's disease was found. Of the children, the stage of

    Patients with oncological pathology have attended daily in sessions for several weeks in the linear accelerator radiation therapy. Persons subject to this intervention have moved to the Hospital Mexico of the social security of Costa Rica, place that centralizes this treatment. The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) has considered two options depending on the place of origin of users: bear the costs of commuting from the area of habitual residence, or place them temporarily in a shelter provided by the institution; the CCSS has chosen the first alternative. This research has consisted of a cost-minimization analysis between these two alternatives. The study population are patients with oncological pathology attending sessions of radiotherapy with linear accelerator at the Hospital Mexico in the first half of 2009 using ambulances of Cruz Roja Costarricense. The size of the study population is 107 persons, the total number of transferred recorded in the Fondo Rotatorio de Operaciones of Hospital Mexico is 998. Patients came from five regions and twenty areas of health according to the geographical division of the CCSS. The variables included have been: cost per day by way of transfer, which involves the distance to the radiotherapy center of Hospital Mexico and the cost of the rate at Cruz Roja ambulance per Km (326.86 colons, according to the agreement CCSS-Cruz Roja in June 2009) estimated daily cost of lodging in a shelter, and the reason daily cost of relocation / daily cost of shelter. The cost of shelter includes food and were used data from the company International Medical Suppliers S. A. as a basis for estimating the daily cost, the price fixed by the company was 65 dollars a day, and the conversion into colons exchange rate as established by the Banco Central de Costa Rica; dated April 30, 2010, the amount has been 33.542.60 colons. The reason for each area of health was given by the ratio of the average daily cost in colons by way of ambulance of

    To study the prevalence of partner violence, and to identify the associated risk factors in a sample of female workers of IMSS (Mexican Social Security Institute), Morelos State. Cross-sectional data from 1 173 women participating in the cohort study of IMSS workers are utilized to study these associations. The study provides information on frequency of psychological, physical or sexual violence and perception of severity during the 12 months prior to the time of data collection. It was carried out in Morelos between October 1998 and March 2000. Polytomous logistic regression models were used to obtain odds ratios for different degrees of partner violence. A high prevalence of partner violence is observed in the sample. Main factors associated with higher severity of violence are state of the relationship and alcohol intake, emotional status of the couple at home, work burden of the woman, and a history of violence in childhood. All these factors are potentially modifiable through interventions aimed at stress reduction. These results should be considered when developing preventive programs against partner violence in Mexico.

Trata-se de uma pesquisa qualitativa, de natureza exploratória e descritiva que utilizou o modelo de identificação das competências essenciais proposto por Prahalad e Hamel (2005. Como resultado identificou-se seis recursos estratégicos que foram definidos como competências essenciais da organização, que são apresentados no artigo. Também foram identificados os processos (recursos, rotinas e as competências específicas do conjunto das Agências do INSS de Passo Fundo/RS e os principais entraves/dificuldades que, à luz da percepção dos seus gestores, prejudicam a performance superior da organização. Foi também identificado a pertinência da adoção de um modelo de análise de vantagens competitivas, em princípio, concebido para organizações privadas, em uma instituição pública, com características diferentes das organizações privadas. Nesse caso, verificou-se que foi válido e extremamente importante a utilização e adequação de modelos teóricos concebidos para análise de empresas privadas e utilizadas na análise de empresas públicas, uma vez que tais organizações também possuem um mercado e precisam ser avaliadas pelo resultado do seu serviço. Dos quatro modelos de vantagens competitivas utilizados para interpretar a efetividade dos serviços do INSS, verificou-se que a abordagem das capacidades dinâmicas mostrou-se mais adequada para explicar o caso, uma vez que trabalha a efetividade organizacional em função dos recursos e processos internos.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Osteoarthritis (OA is one of the main causes of disability worldwide, especially in persons >55 years of age. Currently, controversy remains about the best therapeutic alternative for this disease when evaluated from a cost-effectiveness viewpoint. For Social Security Institutions in developing countries, it is very important to assess what drugs may decrease the subsequent use of medical care resources, considering their adverse events that are known to have a significant increase in medical care costs of patients with OA. Three treatment alternatives were compared: celecoxib (200 mg twice daily, non-selective NSAIDs (naproxen, 500 mg twice daily; diclofenac, 100 mg twice daily; and piroxicam, 20 mg/day and acetaminophen, 1000 mg twice daily. The aim of this study was to identify the most cost-effective first-choice pharmacological treatment for the control of joint pain secondary to OA in patients treated at the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS. Methods A cost-effectiveness assessment was carried out. A systematic review of the literature was performed to obtain transition probabilities. In order to evaluate analysis robustness, one-way and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were conducted. Estimations were done for a 6-month period. Results Treatment demonstrating the best cost-effectiveness results [lowest cost-effectiveness ratio $17.5 pesos/patient ($1.75 USD] was celecoxib. According to the one-way sensitivity analysis, celecoxib would need to markedly decrease its effectiveness in order for it to not be the optimal treatment option. In the probabilistic analysis, both in the construction of the acceptability curves and in the estimation of net economic benefits, the most cost-effective option was celecoxib. Conclusion From a Mexican institutional perspective and probably in other Social Security Institutions in similar developing countries, the most cost-effective option for treatment of knee and/or hip OA

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Cuantificar el efecto de las enfermedades atribuibles al consumo de tabaco, en términos epidemiológicos (morbilidad y económicos (costos de atención médica, en el Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS a escala nacional. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Los costos de la atención médica se estimaron desde la perspectiva del proveedor y se empleó la metodología del costeo de enfermedad. A partir de una muestra de pacientes (n= 1 596 atendidos en las unidades médicas se estableció la frecuencia de utilización de servicios en los tres niveles de atención. Para cada enfermedad se consideraron costos promedio por paciente y costos totales de enfermedad, los cuales se mensuraron en pesos mexicanos de 2004. Se calculó la fracción atribuible al consumo de tabaco para cada enfermedad, misma que se usó para atribuir los costos al tabaco. RESULTADOS: Los costos totales anuales de atención médica nacional corresponden a 7 114 millones para el infarto agudo del miocardio, 3 424 millones para la enfermedad vascular cerebral, 1 469 millones para la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica y 102 millones para el cáncer pulmonar. El costo total anual para el IMSS por estas cuatro enfermedades asciende a 12 100 millones de pesos. Los costos atribuibles al consumo de tabaco corresponden a 7 100 millones de pesos, lo cual equivale a 4.3% del gasto de operación de la institución en el año 2004. CONCLUSIONES: Estos resultados confirman el elevado costo de la atención médica de las enfermedades atribuibles al consumo de tabaco en el IMSS y generan información de primera mano necesaria para impulsar las medidas de prevención en esa institución y reforzar las políticas de control del tabaquismo ya aplicadas en México.OBJECTIVE: To estimate the cost of medical care for the major diseases attributable to tobacco consumption at the IMSS.

    Full Text Available Purpose: One half of the Mexican population lacks comprehensive health care coverage. In 2003, a reform to the General Health Law was approved that led to the creation of the System of Social Protection in Health and made universal health coverage mandatory. The main innovation of this reform was Seguro Popular, which provided coverage for breast cancer. Here we report the outcomes of women with breast cancer treated at a cancer center in Mexico under Seguro Popular. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study that included all patients with breast cancer treated in the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología in Mexico City between January 2007 and December 2013 with Seguro Popular coverage. Demographic and clinical information were collected and survival outcomes were analyzed. Results: A total of 4,300 women with breast cancer were included in this analysis. Most patients had locally advanced disease at diagnosis (53%, n = 2,293, and 13% (n = 558 presented with stage IV disease. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy was administered to 1,834 patients (52%, with a pathologic complete response in 25.1% (n = 460. Median follow-up was 40.5 months. Five-year survival for the entire cohort was 82% (95% CI, 81% to 84%. Five-year survival was 97% for early-stage disease (95% CI, 95% to 98%, 82% for locally advanced disease (95% CI, 80% to 84%, and 36% for metastatic disease (95% CI, 30% to 42%. Conclusion: This represents the first description of a cohort of patients with breast cancer treated in Mexico under Seguro Popular. Seguro Popular has allowed our institution, and other Mexican centers, to establish efficient standardized mechanisms to treat patients with breast cancer.

Cocina y comedor se integran o separan físicamente, aunque son complementarios y responden a la función social del acto de comer. Se reflexiona en aspectos culturales como la aculturación, enculturación, identidad, religión y costumbres como el “ofertar comida a los muertos” el 1 y 2 de noviembre. Se plantea que la cocina es un arte, se expresan, formas, líneas, coloridos o sensibilidades, esto se manifiesta en muebles, utensilios, platillos o en la indumentaria que lucen los comensales. El acto de comer se presenta en actividades económicas, está relacionado con el trabajo agrícola, en actividades de la construcción; o en el comercio donde se oferta en ferias gastronómicas la materia prima producida en la región. El turismo así, es un factor que revalora y promueve a la cocina, no sólo es un atractivo turístico, sino también un servicio en el que visitantes y anfitriones se integran. El turista no sólo busca de hospedaje, sino también va al encuentro de platillos, para llevarse con sus experiencias los sabores y ambientes culturales hacia su lugar de origen.

    The cost of the radiopharmaceutical FDG and of the service of diagnostic studies with PET-CT technology are determined through the design of a costing system. The aim has been to provide to the Centro de Investigacion en Ciencias Atomicas, Nucleares y Moleculares (Cicanum), an appropriate decision making as to definition of sale prices in the CCSS-Cicanum Project. This project has arisen of the partnership between the Cicanum and Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social (CCSS), in order to satisfy the needs in the area of oncology; specifically, the acquisition of PET-CT technology. Diagnostic studies can be performed with this technology to detect and measure the evolution of different types of cancer. Additionally, the realization of these studies have required the acquisition of a cyclotron for the production of the radiopharmaceutical called FDG by Cicanum. The theoretical and conceptual aspects relating to atomic, nuclear and molecular sciences are defined, as well as the contribution of the Universidad de Costa Rica for research in these areas and perspectives of costing systems. The administrative-accounting area of Cicanum is described and diagnosed, as well as of the CCSS-Cicanum Project, to know its scope, management and allocation of costs. The situation diagnosed in the administrative-accounting area of Cicanum and the CCSS-Cicanum Project are analyzed, through the tool Swotr (strengths, opportunities, weaknesses, threats and risks). A costing system is elaborated for Cicanum, based on work orders. The system has been developed in a series of electronic work sheets that have allowed to obtain costs associated with the production of the radiopharmaceutical FDG and the rendering of diagnostic services with PET-CT technology to the CCSS, as well as the definition of sales price. As a complement to the above, a master budget is done, which provides a financial vision of the project in its first ten years of operation [es

    Full Text Available This study aimed to understand the meanings women who possess health plans hold regarding pregnancy and get to know their care needs in this phase of the vital cycle. It was based on the qualitative research of phenomenological inspiration. The discourses analysis was based on the sociologist and fenomenologist Alfred Schutz's thought. Having health plans and being attended in private institutions were defined as inclusion criteria. The following categories emerged from the discourses: having new responsibilities; experiencing a special situation; experiencing insecurity, anxiety and expectations; feeling limited; trusting the health professional. It was found, through the analysis of categories, that the experience of the pregnant women who participated in the study is similar to those who do not possess health plans. However, in the category "trusting the health professional" it was possible to perceive the importance of possessing health plan, which allows the intersubjectivity between the woman and the health professional.Este estudio tiene como objetivo comprender los significados que las mujeres que poseen seguro de salud atribuyen al embarazo y conocer sus necesidades de cuidado en esta fase del ciclo vital. El estudio fue fundamentado en la investigación cualitativa de inspiración fenomenológica. El pensamiento del sociólogo y fenomenólogo Alfred Schutz condujo el análisis de los discursos. Como criterio de inclusión, se definió que los individuos deberían ser atendidos en instituciones privadas y poseer seguro de salud. De las declaraciones surgieram las categorías: teniendo nuevas responsabilidades; vivenciando una situación especial; vivenciando inseguridad, ansiedad y expectativas; sintiéndose limitadas; confiando en el profesional de salud. Por medio del análisis de las categorías, fue constatado que la vivencia de las mujeres embarazadas que participaron de este estudio se mostró de forma similar a la de las mujeres

    Full Text Available Aposentadoria por invalidez provoca um impacto limitante no crescimento da força de trabalho. Este artigo procura traçar o perfil socioeconômico-demográfico do beneficiário aposentado por invalidez, na Paraíba, no quinquênio 2007-2011 e verificar a proporção de benefícios concedidos e suas causas. Para tanto, foi realizada uma pesquisa observacional, descritiva, com dados secundários, a partir de um formulário construído para coleta de dados, contendo as seguintes variáveis: ano em que o benefício foi concedido; motivo do afastamento segundo o Código Internacional de Doenças (10ª Revisão; faixa etária, sexo e faixa salarial do aposentado após a invalidez; tempo de contribuição ao INSS antes da aposentadoria; e forma de filiação (desempregado, segurado especial, autônomo, facultativo, empregado doméstico e trabalhador avulso. Para análise, foi utilizado o software Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, versão 20.0. Do total de 13.537 beneficiários por invalidez, 62,8% estavam na faixa de 40 a 59 anos, 64% eram do sexo masculino, 63% possuíam uma média salarial entre um e dois salários mínimos, 28,3% dos benefícios foram concedidos a pessoas desempregadas e 25,3% das concessões deveram-se a doenças circulatórias. Espera-se que este estudo seja propulsor de outros estudos no Estado da Paraíba, pois a mensuração de indicadores é necessária para que se possa intervir visando a redução das aposentadorias por invalidez.

Pocos estudios se han realizado para determinar la prevalencia de infección por VPH de alto riesgo en mujeres embarazadas, y sus factores relacionados. El presente estudio busca determinar la prevalencia de infección por VPH de alto riesgo, en una muestra de mujeres embarazadas mexicanas, y sus posibles factores de riesgo. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Se realizó un estudio epidemiológico de tipo transversal en una muestra de 274 mujeres embarazadas que acudieron a los servicios de primer nivel de atención del Hospital General del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS en Cuernavaca, Morelos, durante el año 2000. Se obtuvieron muestras de exudado vaginal mediante autotoma, y se aplicó un cuestionario estructurado sobre características sociodemográficas, ginecoobstétricas y de comportamiento sexual. La detección de infección por VPH de alto riesgo, se realizó empleando un método de captura de híbridos (Hybrid Capture II, HCII, Digene Corp.. RESULTADOS: La prevalencia de infección por VPH fue de 37.2% (102/274. En promedio acudieron a su primera cita prenatal al sexto mes de embarazo; la media de edad fue 25.7 años. Los principales factores de riesgo asociados a infección por VPH fueron: edad, entre 20 y 29 años (RM = 2.82; IC95% 1.02-7.76, 30 o más años (RM ajustada = 6.85; IC95% 1.22-38.2; compañeros sexuales con otras parejas (RM= 2.05; IC95% 1.2-3.7.

  10. Bio-cultural anchorage of the prickly pear cactus in Tlalnepantla (Morelos, Mexico

    Torres-Salcido, Gerardo

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available The prickly pear cactus is a source of food with strong bio-cultural anchorage in Mexico. This is due to at least three factors: 1 the nature and heritage of cacti; 2 cultural heritage; and 3 the socio-cultural relationships with historical and symbolic roots that have facilitated knowledge of how to cultivate it and how to use it. The aim of this article is to put factors of territorial anchorage and its historical transformation in context by examining the case of the municipality of Tlalnepantla in the state of Morelos, Mexico. This community has experienced accelerated change due to the exchange of traditional crops for the prickly pear cactus and the integration of farming, commercialization and agro-transformation. Our hypothesis is that the market, internal conflicts and a lack of socio-institutional coordination have put social organization into crisis, favoring the territorial spread of the prickly pear cactus and making the Local Agro-Food Systems (LAFS of Tlalnepantla less competitive. The conclusions highlight important economic and social advances whose roots lie in the strengthening and anchorage of the territory-product. However, circumstances both internal and external to the community persist, such as intra-community conflicts, the international market and cultural paradigm shifts that affect the producers and put consolidation of the LAFS at risk.El nopal es un alimento con un fuerte anclaje bio-cultural en México, propiciado por al menos tres factores: 1 la naturaleza y el patrimonio de cactáceas; 2 el patrimonio cultural; y, 3 las relaciones socio-culturales que han permitido un “saber hacer” y un “saber utilizar” con raíces históricas y simbólicas. El objetivo es situar los factores de anclaje territorial y su transformación histórica tomando como caso el municipio de Tlalnepantla, en el estado de Morelos, México. Esta comunidad ha experimentado un acelerado cambio por la reconversión de los cultivos

    Full Text Available No es desconocido este importante tema médico-social entre los colegas federados. Algunas publicaciones de "Heraldo Médico", entre otras; el interesante artículo del doctor Fidel Torres León, publicado en este mismo órgano en agosto de 1940, nos han traído interesantes puntos de discusión al respecto; pero parece que no despertaron más que un entusiasmo momentáneo. Sin embargo, a las medidas de solidaridad social frente a los enemigos eternos del hombre: la Enfermedad, la Invalidez y la Muerte, han tenido necesidad de recurrir los pueblos más ricos y más cultos del mundo. Es tiempo de que los médicos colombianos, como guardianes de la salud y del porvenir fisiológico de la raza, nos encarguemos de plantear estos problemas al Estado y a la opinión pública.

Además, el impacto estimado sobre el margen financiero se considera insignificante para los participantes en el sistema bancario.

Resultados: Las razones de uso están relacionadas , en los tres sitios, con los beneficios que les trae a las usuarias la consulta, el buen trato de l personal y la comodidad de las instalaciones de los EBAIS. Mientras que las razones de no uso comunes están asociadas al concepto de salud ligado a ausencia de enfermedad, la falta de información y problemas económicos de las usuarias, la n o asignación de citas después del año de edad y la calidad de la atención recibida. Las razones relacionadas con el contexto, como las largas distancias, las limitaciones en cuanto a medios de transporte, cobran gran relevancia principalmente en la zona ru ral y en el territorio indígena. Conclusiones: El colocar la asistencia a cita control de esta población dentro de los compromisos de gestión de la CCSS, asignar la cita previamente y designar el equipo de atención en los EBAIS tomando en cuenta no una no rma general, sino las condiciones particulares de cada sitio, son medidas que garantizarían el aumento de la cobertura de la atención integral a esta población.

    On September 2017, Mexico experienced two significant inslab earthquakes with only 11 days apart from each other. Both caused severe damage in the epicentral states: Chiapas, Oaxaca, Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City. In all senses, they tested the capabilities of the Servicio Sismológico Nacional (SSN, Mexican National Seismological Service), from the acquisition, processing, and reporting systems (both, automatic and manual), to social network and media response. In this work, we present the various aspects of the performance of the SSN and the results obtained real-time and the days after. The first earthquake occurred on 8 September within the Gulf of Tehuantepec. The SSN estimated its magnitude as Mww8.2, from W-phase inversion of local and regional data. Forty days later, it has had more than 7750 aftershocks with magnitudes larger than 2.5, making restless to inhabitants in the epicentral area. A preliminary hypo-DD relocation of the aftershocks shows two parallel SE-NW alignments. The mainshock seemed to have triggered seismicity in central Mexico, an effect previously observed by Singh et al. (1998) for coastal earthquakes. Barely 11 days had passed since this major quake. The SSN was in the middle of an intense aftershock sequence and conducting several outreach activities due to the anniversary of the 19 September 1985 (Mw8.0) earthquake, when the second quake hit. SSN located its epicenter at the border of the states of Morelos and Puebla and estimated its magnitude as Mww7.1. In this case, SSN identified only eight aftershocks, which was a similar behavior for previous inslab earthquakes in the region. Important aspects that these events have highlighted are the media and social network responses. Immediately after the first quake, SSN faced misinformation due to viral videos and social media messages predicting massive earthquakes and their relation to a solar storm that took place days before. Outreach to the public and the media became essential

    Groundwater is one of the main supply sources of drinking water in Mexico, as they support a poor biological community, because of their low contain of nutrients. However in the recent years, human activities and urban growth are the main factors of aquifer contamination. Therefore, water may contain chemical contaminants and microorganisms that can cause several diseases; such is the case of free-living amoebae (FLA). The objective of this research is to determine the microbiological quality (total coliforms, fecal coliforms and free-living amoebae) of Zacatepec aquifer, in the state of Morelos. Monthly samplings of thirteen wells of the aquifer were carried out during one year. The following physicochemical parameters were measure in situ: pH, dissolved oxygen (DO) and temperature. Total and fecal coliforms were determined by the membrane filter technique. Free-living amoebae were cultured on non-nutritive agar medium (NNE); the identification was carried out taking in account their morphological features. All the wells were polluted with total coliforms, one with a geometric mean of 107 CFU/100 mL. Fecal coliforms were absent in four wells; nevertheless, one presented a geometric mean of 107 CFU/100 mL. The most polluted well was number 3, and the months with more bacteria were April and July. Free-living amoebae were isolated in all the wells, the highest isolation number was found in well number 2, while the lowest were found in wells 4, 5, and 10. December and January were the months with the highest number of amoebae, and April with the lowest. Twenty two species belonging to 16 genera were isolated; the most frequent was Hartmannella with 38 %; this amoeba has not been reported as pathogenic, but it has been associated to ocular and brain infections in humans. Of the pathogenic amoebae, Acanthamoeba was isolated, but with a low frequency (6.7 %). Physicochemical parameters had low seasonal variation, pH was close to neutrality in a range of 6.4 to 7

    Full Text Available Diabetes mellitus control requires a constant, continuous and strict evaluation of many factors that inherently affect its course, not only from the point of view of glycemia, but also from other aspects of the metabolic disorder produced by diabetes itself, by other diseases associated with it and by health habits that influence its control and the appearance of complications derived from it. In order to identify this particular situation in the Diabetes Program of the outpatient attention center of the Instituto de Seguro Social (ISS, we evaluated diabetes control, the presence of associated diseases, health habits, chronic complications and the degree of control of many parameters. Methods: We conducted a descriptive, prospective, cross-sectional trial in which, from the total of 1.450 medical charts of patients attending such program and by means of simple randomization and replacement, 304 medical charts were selected of patients that met the inclusion criteria from January 1998 to December 2001. A structured form was applied to all the selected charts in order to evaluate the main clinical features, the presence of associated disease (hypertension, dyslipidemia and obesity, the most significant health habits, the presence of complications and the relationship of control parameters with international standards. Data were registered using Epi-Info 6.0; we processed data obtaining absolute and relative frequencies, and in order to do estimates of association we used contingency tables using Pearson’s chi square with a p significance of < 0.05. Results: of the 304 medical charts reviewed, 91% were from type 2 diabetics and 64% were from women. Diseases associated to diabetes were hypertension 69%, dyslipidemia 64%, obesity 37%.

We analyze three categories of formative experiences: a formative experiences within the family, b scholar and professional formative experiences and c formative experiences aside from the domestic, scholar and professional spheres. Based on our study, we suggest the following factors in the formación of leaders: sociomoral formación, mentoring by support figures and guide figures, search for autonomy, exposure to problematic situations that represent a challenge, setting of long-range goals, generation of dispositions to resist an instrumental logic, exposure to leadership figures, as well as an increase in social and cultural capital. We emphasize the importance of the existential as well as the ethical and political dimensions in leadership formation.

    Full Text Available Para 2011, estavam previstos R$ 570 milhões ao Programa de Subvenção ao Prêmio do Seguro Rural (PSR, mas apenas R$ 253,4 milhões foram alocados ao Programa em função de contingenciamentos do governo. Apesar disso, foi possível segurar 5,6 milhões de hectares com uma importância segurada de R$ 7,3 bilhões. Mas qual deveria ser o volume de recursos direcionados ao PSR para que todo o crédito de custeio das lavouras pudesse ser coberto pelo mercado segurador? O estudo apresenta uma metodologia para calcular qual deve ser o valor orçamentário médio do PSR para cobrir cem por cento do custeio das lavouras. Para 2011, os resultados sugerem que o volume de recursos deveria ter sido quatro vezes maior do que o valor empenhado. Ademais, os resultados foram desagregados por estado e por culturas agrícolas. A importância do PSR para a massificação do seguro rural é indiscutível. Porém, além dos recursos do PSR estarem subdimensionados, outro problema ameaça a continuidade do Programa. Pelo terceiro ano consecutivo, o PSR tem sofrido graves contingenciamentos que têm impactado negativamente o mercado. Portanto, fica evidente a necessidade de maior esforço do governo federal em ampliar os recursos da subvenção e destiná-los única e integralmente ao PSR.

    Although violence against women is gaining international attention as a prevention priority, little is known about how risks differ across countries. A comparative study of violence against pregnant Mexican women in Morelos, Mexico, and Latina women in Los Angeles County, California, United States. In 1998 and 1999, women in prenatal clinics were interviewed about psychological abuse and sexual and physical violence by their partner, during and the 1 year prior to the index pregnancy. The overall response rate for Morelos was 99%, with a sample size of 914; Los Angeles County had a response rate of 96.9%, with a sample size of 219. Women in Morelos reported a higher prevalence of violence compared to women in the California (14.8% v 11.9%, respectively). A partner aged child were more than 25 times more likely to be abused during pregnancy than women not reporting this type of abuse. The identification of factors associated with violence against women, especially as they differ by culture and ethnicity, will help clinicians to better identify victims and to design and implement culturally appropriate prevention programs.

    Full Text Available Wave-induced extreme water levels in the Puerto Morelos fringing reef lagoon are investigated by means of a phase-resolving non-hydrostatic wave model (SWASH. This model solves the nonlinear shallow water equations including non-hydrostatic pressure. The one-dimensional version of the model is implemented in order to investigate wave transformation in fringing reefs. Firstly, the numerical model is validated with (i laboratory experiments conducted on a physical model (Demirbilek et al., 2007and (ii field observations (Coronado et al., 2007. Numerical results show good agreement with both experimental and field data. The comparison against the physical model results, for energetic wave conditions, indicates that high- and low-frequency wave transformation is well reproduced. Moreover, extreme water-level conditions measured during the passage of Hurricane Ivan in Puerto Morelos are also estimated by the numerical tool. Subsequently, the model is implemented at different along-reef locations in Puerto Morelos. Extreme water levels, wave-induced setup, and infragravity wave energy are estimated inside the reef lagoon for different storm wave conditions (Hs >2 m. The numerical results revealed a strong correlation between the offshore sea-swell wave energy and the setup. In contrast, infragravity waves are shown to be the result of a more complex pattern which heavily relies on the reef geometry. Indeed, the southern end of the reef lagoon provides evidence of resonance excitation, suggesting that the reef barrier may act as either a natural flood protection morphological feature, or as an inundation hazard enhancer depending on the incident wave conditions.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available “Morelos rice” is a variety of rice with certificate of denomination of origin. It is a large grain of opaque appearance and extra large size that is grown exclusively in Morelos state (Mexico. Thus, the quality and characteristics of its rice bran may affect the kinetic of the extraction process of its oil as well as its stability. Therefore, this work is oriented to determine the extraction kinetics of its oil and its oxidative stability. The latter one is obtained through the proposal of a method based on open-circuit potential measurements. The results showed that the rice bran has 21.44% of raw oil, with a chemical composition (based on fatty acids of 48.48% oleic acid, 35.26% linoleic acid, and 14.54% palmitic acid, as well as a free fatty acid content of 8.15%. A high percentage of its oil content can be recovered in a short time at room temperature, and its extraction kinetics is a function of both the washing and the diffusion of its oil. Under storage conditions the raw oil has a high stability, at least 8 months, and its oxidative stability was of 24, 9, and 7 hours at 50°C, 80°C, and 110°C, respectively.

MÉTODOS: Estudio de observación, realizado en Morelos, México, 2007. Los datos colectados en entrevistas y observaciones directas fueron sometidos a análisis de contenido y mapeo político. El software Policy Marker fue utilizado para evaluar los pesos atribuidos a los datos de desempeño (e.g. criterios alto, medio y bajo y el papel de actores (acciones realizadas sean ellas de vigilancia, control o administrativas. Se realizó análisis estratégico de las oportunidades y desafíos en el cumplimiento de las políticas públicas y control del dengue. RESULTADOS: Las bases jurídicas indican que la respuesta a la epidemia es una tarea multisectorial. Sin embargo, la respuesta está centrada en actividades de los servicios de la salud, que están forzados a dar mayor apoyo financiero y derivar los recursos humanos necesarios, en contraste con la contribución de otros sectores (e.g. agua y saneamiento básico, que desconocen sus responsabilidades. El sector de la salud presenta alto nivel de factibilidad para la vinculación intra?institucional, en términos de optimización de recursos y cumplimiento de objetivos, particularmente entre autoridades de salud en los niveles estatal, jurisdiccional, municipal y local. CONCLUSIONES: El abordaje multidisciplinario y el fortalecimiento de las responsabilidades políticas permitirán la respuesta eficaz ante la epidemia del dengue, sustentada en la coordinación sectorial e involucramiento activo de la población afectada.

    Full Text Available Objective. To analyze the perception in relation to when and how to perform actions for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer among women and health care providers in communities with a high percentage of indigenous population in Morelos, Mexico. Materials and methods. Ten health providers and 58 women users of health services were interviewed which have a first level of attention in five communities. The analysis was developed under the approach of the Grounded Theory. Results. Providers are poorly informed about current regulations and specific clinical indications for the detection of cervical and breast cancer. Few propitiate health literacy under intercultural sensitization. The users have imprecise or wrong notions of the early detection. Conclusions. The need for training in adherence to norms is evident. It is urgent to assume a culturally relevant approach to enable efficient communication and promote health literacy for early detection of these two cancers.

  16. The role of the reef–dune system in coastal protection in Puerto Morelos (Mexico

    2018-04-01

    Full Text Available Reefs and sand dunes are critical morphological features providing natural coastal protection. Reefs dissipate around 90 % of the incident wave energy through wave breaking, whereas sand dunes provide the final natural barrier against coastal flooding. The storm impact on coastal areas with these features depends on the relative elevation of the extreme water levels with respect to the sand dune morphology. However, despite the importance of barrier reefs and dunes in coastal protection, poor management practices have degraded these ecosystems, increasing their vulnerability to coastal flooding. The present study aims to theoretically investigate the role of the reef–dune system in coastal protection under current climatic conditions at Puerto Morelos, located in the Mexican Caribbean Sea, using a widely validated nonlinear non-hydrostatic numerical model (SWASH. Wave hindcast information, tidal level, and a measured beach profile of the reef–dune system in Puerto Morelos are employed to estimate extreme runup and the storm impact scale for current and theoretical scenarios. The numerical results show the importance of including the storm surge when predicting extreme water levels and also show that ecosystem degradation has important implications for coastal protection against storms with return periods of less than 10 years. The latter highlights the importance of conservation of the system as a mitigation measure to decrease coastal vulnerability and infrastructure losses in coastal areas in the short to medium term. Furthermore, the results are used to evaluate the applicability of runup parameterisations for beaches to reef environments. Numerical analysis of runup dynamics suggests that runup parameterisations for reef environments can be improved by including the fore reef slope. Therefore, future research to develop runup parameterisations incorporating reef geometry features (e.g. reef crest elevation, reef lagoon width, fore

    Full Text Available The CARICOMP site at Puerto Morelos, Mexico was monitored from 1993 to 2005. No significant changes in air temperature, wind patterns, periodicity and quantity of rainfall, sea-surface temperature and water transparency were observed between sampling years. During the study four hurricane impacts were registered. At the coral reef site overall mean cover of fleshy algae (47% and turf algae (36% were high, whereas cover of corals (2% and sponges (3%, and abundance of sea-urchins (0.04 org m-2 were consistently low. Gorgonians were dominant and showed changes in their community structure; the number of species increased from 1993 to 1995, their abundance decreased after Hurricane Roxanne (1995 and recovered by 2001. At four seagrass sites total community biomass remained constant (707.1-929.6 g dry m-2 but the above-ground biomass of the seagrass Syringodium filiforme and fleshy algae increased gradually. Total biomass (531-699 g dry m-2 and leaf productivity (0.89-1.56 g dry m-2 d-1 of the seagrass Thalassia testudinum remained constant, but the species invested proportionally more biomass in above-ground leaf tissues at the end of the study. The minor hurricanes from 1993 until 2005 had no detectable impacts on the seagrass beds, however, the major Hurricane Wilma (October 2005 changed the community composition at three stations and caused complete burial of the vegetation at a coastal station. The gradual changes in the seagrass and reef communities recorded in the 12 years of continuous monitoring of the CARICOMP site may reflect the increased pollution caused by the rapid augment in urban and tourist developments along the coasts and inland from Puerto Morelos, coupled with poor water management practices.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper is to describe some of the results of the Morelos HPV Study. The main objective of the Morelos HPV Study is to evaluate the use of human papillomavirus (HPV DNA testing, as compared to the Papanicolaou (Pap test, for cervical cancer (CC screening. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The Morelos HPV Study is currently being conducted in Mexico, to examine the possibility of using HPV testing for CC screening. The HPV testing of self-collected vaginal and clinician-collected cervical specimens was evaluated as part of this study. The acceptability of the HPV testing of self-collected specimens was compared to that of the Pap test. A cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA and cost-benefit analysis (CBA was also performed. RESULTS: The Morelos HPV Study results indicate that HPV testing has a greater sensitivity to detect cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN 2/3 and CC than the Pap test. Our results also indicate an over-all lower acceptability of the Pap test as compared to the self-collected procedure. The results of the CEA and CBA indicate that screening women between the ages of 20-80 for CC using some type of HPV testing is always more cost-effective than screening for CC using the Pap test. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that self- and clinician-collected HPV testing could be used in CC prevention programs, as an effective complement or substitute for the Pap test.OBJETIVO: Describir algunos de los resultados del Estudio de VPH en Morelos.

MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: El estudio se realizó en el estado de Morelos, a partir de 394 certificados de defunción de mujeres entre 12 y 49 años de edad que murieron a lo largo del año 2001. Con base en una lista de diagnósticos de los certificados de defunción, se excluyeron 167 casos que, por las causas de muerte determinadas en el certificado de defunción, no se consideraron que podrían haber sido muertes maternas ni muertes violentas. Posteriormente se realizó el análisis de los 227 certificados restantes a través de la revisión de expedientes clínicos y/o autopsias verbales. RESULTADOS: Se encontraron 51 muertes violentas. Las estadísticas oficiales señalan que en 2001 hubo 18 muertes maternas, mientras que este estudio identificó 23 muertas maternas directas más cuatro muertas violentas durante el embarazo y el posparto. Es decir, se encontró que el evento reproductivo fue el factor que desencadenó el homicidio o suicidio de cuatro mujeres. Excepto en un caso, este hecho no está señalado ni relacionado en los registros oficiales. CONCLUSIONES: Se recomienda la inclusión de la violencia relacionada con la reproducción en los registros oficiales de mortalidad materna como una causa indirecta.

    Full Text Available O mercado de serviços de atenção à saúde apresenta particularidades não observadas em outros mercados de bens, traduzidas nas relações contratuais estabelecidas entre os agentes deste mercado: relação paciente-provedor e relação seguradora-provedor. Na relação seguradora-provedor existe um problema de risco moral que cria incentivos à sobreutilização de serviços médicos. O objetivo deste trabalho é sistematizar as principais características institucionais do sistema de saúde americano, enfatizando as reformas ocorridas na década de 1970 e os problemas identificados em regulamentar o setor privado de serviços médicos e hospitalares. Estes problemas estão relacionados, em sua grande maioria, à regulamentação dos contratos permitidos entre as seguradoras, os provedores de serviços médicos e hospitalares e os segurados. A principal conclusão deste trabalho é mostrar que a flexibilização dos contratos entre provedores e seguradora tem efeito significativo na redução dos custos do seguro-saúde, resultando sobretudo em maior eficiência dos serviços ofertados. Os novos desenhos de contratos estabelecidos permitem a divisão do risco entre os provedores e seguradora, além de centralizar a decisão de encaminhamentos médicos a serem realizados configurando utilização mais racional destes serviços. A flexibilização dos contratos não significou, no entanto, eliminação da regulação por parte do Estado do setor de seguro-saúde privado, sendo fundamental para garantir a sustentabilidade financeira dos seguros.The aim of this paper is to organize the main institutional characteristics of the American Health System, emphasizing the reforms that occurred during the age of seventy and the difficulties to regulate the private sector of medical and hospital services.

    Full Text Available En los países industrializados, convergen dos fenómenos demográficos, la longevidad y la escasa natalidad, que provocan un envejecimiento de la población y con ello una serie de procesos sociales que son necesarios atender. Uno de ellos, es la cobertura de la dependencia de las personas mayores, entendiendo por dependencia, la necesidad de ayuda para realizar las tareas básicas de la vida diaria. España se encuentra en la actualidad en plena discusión parlamentaria para regular mediante ley la dependencia y cubrir el avance de este problema que en los próximos años se verá agravado por nuestra evolución demográfica y social. Esta ley pretende establecer las bases para su atención mediante un seguro de dependencia, bien de cobertura pública por parte del Estado o bien por aseguradoras privadas. El trabajo presentado en este congreso forma parte de un estudio amplio sobre la dependencia en España y abordará una aproximación a la formulación actuarial de un seguro de dependencia partiendo del uso de cadenas de Markov para un modelo de múltiples estados, y un acercamiento a la aplicación práctica mediante el análisis de datos sobre discapacidad de nuestro país.

    Full Text Available El sistema de salud mexicano se compone de la Secretaría de Salud (rectora del sector y prestador de algunos servicios, la seguridad social laboral pública, y el sector privado. Transita por un proceso de reforma iniciado en 1995 para universalizar la cobertura y separar las funciones regulación-financiamiento-prestación de servicios; reforma que después de quince años sigue inacabada y problemática. Este texto analiza crítica- y propositivamente la problemática surgida a raíz de las sucesivas reformas. El énfasis se pone en su última etapa con la introducción del "Seguro Popular" para la población sin seguridad social laboral. El análisis concibe la reforma de salud como parte de la Reforma del Estado en el marco de la reorganización neoliberal de la sociedad. A diferencia de otros países latinoamericanos este proceso no pasó por una nueva Constitución. El análisis se basa en documentos oficiales y un seguimiento sistemático de la instrumentación del Sistema de Protección Social en Salud y su impacto sobre la cobertura y acceso a los servicios. Se concluye que es improbable que se universalice la cobertura poblacional y menos el acceso a los servicios. Empero las reformas están forzando la mercantilización del sistema aún en presencia de un sector privado débil.The Mexican health system is comprised of the Department of Health, state labor social security and the private sector. It is undergoing a reform process initiated in 1995 to achieve universal coverage and separate the regulation, financing and service functions; a reform that after fifteen years is incomplete and problematic. The scope of this paper is to assess the problems that underlie the successive reforms. Special emphasis is given to the last reform stage with the introduction of the "Insurance of the People" aimed at the population without labor social security.

En este trabajo pretendemos aunar estas posturas antitéticas a través del principio de razonabilidad de la cuantía de la franquicia, el que permitiría una valoración más cercana a la justicia en las soluciones propugnadas por los jueces.

    Full Text Available Los seguros agrícolas basados en índices climáticos son instrumentos financieros novedosos para la gestión de riesgos de agricultores. A diferencia de los seguros tradicionales, éstos pueden mitigar e incluso anular el riesgo moral y la selección adversa, permitiendo abaratar sus primas. Esta característica hace de este tipo de seguros un mecanismo atractivo para economías en vías de desarrollo con gran parte de población rural sumida en severas condiciones de precariedad y, simultáneamente, se promueve el desarrollo de un mercado de seguros agrícolas. Este tipo de seguros no es aún empleado en Bolivia, pero su promoción por parte del aparato público tiene gran potencial de coadyuvar a la seguridad alimentaria y promover el desarrollo económico. El documento presenta algunas experiencias exitosas en el desarrollo de seguros basados en índices climáticos a nivel mundial y analiza el estado actual de desarrollo de este mercado en Bolivia. Se revisan en detalle los fundamentos técnicos de la creación de este tipo de seguros, a partir de los cuales, se presentan propuestas de esquemas paramétricos de seguros agrícolas basados en índices climáticos para la protección de cultivos de trigo y papa, ambos de ciclo intermedio, en el municipio de Anzaldo (sur-oeste de Cochabamba.

    Geophysical surveys were used to determine the depth of the freshwater/saltwater interface and groundwater preferential flow pathways along the Ruta de los Cenotes, near Puerto Morelos (northeast part of the Yucatán peninsula). The Yucatán Peninsula is a limestone platform that allows quick recharge of the aquifer, the main supply of water for this region. The water in the aquifer is divided into freshwater and saltwater zones. A Schlumberger resistivity sounding along the road near one cenote suggests the water table is 5 meters deep and the freshwater/saltwater interface is 38 meters deep. A time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) sounding suggests the freshwater/saltwater interface is 45 meters deep. The depth of the interface determines the volume of fresh water available. Preferential flow pathways in the vadose and saturated zones are karst conduits where groundwater percolates downward in the vadose zone. These were identified using resistivity profiling and spontaneous self-potential (SP) geophysical methods. Interpretation of SP profile Line SP1, located 3 m south of the cenote, suggests two fractures, which appear to extend south as far as SP profile Line SP2, 15 m south of the cenote; both lines are parallel to each other. SP anomalies suggest water flow along these fractures. The use of noninvasive geophysical methods, specifically SP, resistivity and TEM are useful for exploring the karst system in the Yucatán peninsula.

    Full Text Available Background and Aims Cryptic peracarids are an important component of the coral reef fauna in terms of diversity and abundance, yet they have been poorly studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate the taxonomic richness and abundance of cryptic peracarids in coral rubble in the Puerto Morelos Reef National Park, Mexico (PMRNP, and their relationship with depth. Methods Three reef sites were selected: (1 Bonanza, (2 Bocana, and (3 Jardines. At each site six kilograms of coral rubble were collected over four sampling periods at three depths: 3 m (back-reef, 6–8 m (fore-reef, and 10–12 m (fore-reef. Results A total of 8,887 peracarid crustaceans belonging to 200 taxa distributed over five orders and 63 families was obtained; 70% of the taxa were identified to species and 25% to genus level. Fifty species of those collected represent new records for the Mexican Caribbean Sea. Isopoda was the most speciose order while Tanaidacea was the most abundant. Discussion Cryptic peracarid taxonomic richness and abundance were related to depth with higher values of both parameters being found in the shallow (3 m back-reef, possibly due to a higher reef development and a greater accumulation of coral rubble produced during hurricanes. Peracarid data obtained in the present study can be used as a baseline for future monitoring programs in the PMRNP.

    Lead is a pervasive pollutant, associated at low levels to many adverse health effects. To investigate lead levels, exposure pathways and intervention possibilities in school children from Alpuyeca, in Morelos, Mexico. Blood lead concentrations (BPb) were measured in 226 children in 2011. Exposure pathways were assessed through a questionnaire, lead measurements in different environmental matrices and spatial aggregation analysis of lead concentrations. BPb ranged from 1.5 to 36.5 ìg/dL, with a mean (SD) of 7.23 (4.9) ìg/dL. Sixty-four and 18% of the children had BPb > 5 ìg/dL and > 10 ìg/dL, respectively. The use of lead glazed ceramics was reported in almost half of the households; it was the main BPb determinant and it was associated with an increased risk of having BPb > 5 g/dL by 2.7 times (p = 0.001). Environmental samples were within US EPA’s lead recommended limits, and blood lead levels were randomly distributed in the community. Lead remains a public health problem in Alpuyeca, Mexico. Unlike other local pollutant lead exposure prevention can be achieved inexpensively and in a short term. Interventions should make mothers aware of lead's health effects and empower them to safeguard their children's health by avoiding the culturally ingrained use of lead glazed pottery.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT The present study provides information on the morphology of stomatopod larvae found in two different reef systems which are also considered national parks: the Sistema Arrecifal Veracruzano (SAVNP and Arrecife Puerto Morelos (APMNP. Zooplankton samples were collected at 26 stations of the SAVNP and four stations of the APMNP. Stomatopod larvae were identified and classified by their larval stage. We found representatives of three stomatopod superfamilies: the superfamily Gonodactyloidea Giesbrecht, 1910 was represented by Neogonodactylus oerstedii (Hansen, 1895, Neogonodactylus wennerae Manning and Heard, 1997, and Pseudosquillidae genus and species indeterminate; the superfamily Lysiosquilloidea Giesbrecht, 1910 was represented by Lysiosquilloidea genus and species indeterminate, Lysiosquilla sp., Lysiosquilla scabricauda (Lamarck, 1818 and Nannosquilla adkisoni Camp and Manning, 1982; the superfamily Squilloidea was represented by larvae of Alima neptuni (Linnaeus, 1768, Squilla spp., and Squilla empusa Say, 1818. We were able to identify and describe four stages of larval development for representatives of these superfamilies. This is the first study describing several stages of larval development of different species of the stomatopods from the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea.

    Full Text Available The CARICOMP site at Puerto Morelos, Mexico was monitored from 1993 to 2005. No significant changes in air temperature, wind patterns, periodicity and quantity of rainfall, sea-surface temperature and water transparency were observed between sampling years. During the study four hurricane impacts were registered. At the coral reef site overall mean cover of fleshy algae (47% and turf algae (36% were high, whereas cover of corals (2% and sponges (3%, and abundance of sea-urchins (0.04 org m-2 were consistently low. Gorgonians were dominant and showed changes in their community structure; the number of species increased from 1993 to 1995, their abundance decreased after Hurricane Roxanne (1995 and recovered by 2001. At four seagrass sites total community biomass remained constant (707.1-929.6 g dry m-2 but the above-ground biomass of the seagrass Syringodium filiforme and fleshy algae increased gradually. Total biomass (531-699 g dry m-2 and leaf productivity (0.89-1.56 g dry m-2 d-1 of the seagrass Thalassia testudinum remained constant, but the species invested proportionally more biomass in above-ground leaf tissues at the end of the study. The minor hurricanes from 1993 until 2005 had no detectable impacts on the seagrass beds, however, the major Hurricane Wilma (October 2005 changed the community composition at three stations and caused complete burial of the vegetation at a coastal station. The gradual changes in the seagrass and reef communities recorded in the 12 years of continuous monitoring of the CARICOMP site may reflect the increased pollution caused by the rapid augment in urban and tourist developments along the coasts and inland from Puerto Morelos, coupled with poor water management practices.

    To estimate the prevalence and factors associated with sexual abuse in childhood and adolescence. Study conducted in a sample of students in the state of Morelos, Mexico, in 2004-2005. Participants (n=1730) were drawn from a cohort of 13,293 students aged 12 to 24 years. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire comprising parts of validated scales. The variables studied were: sociodemographic (gender, living area, socioeconomic status), family (parental education, parental addictions, violence between parents), individual psychological factors (self-esteem assessed using the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory, depression, alcohol consumption), intrafamily violence (assessed through Strauss Scale) and sexual abuse. Multiple logistic regression assessed the risk factors associated. Odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals were estimated. Of all students studied, 4.7% (n=80) reported attempted sexual abuse and 2.9% (n=50) were victims of consummated sexual abuse. Women had higher prevalence of attempted (6.1%) abuse; 3.6% of females and 1.9% of men were sexually abused. Main perpetrators were boyfriends in women and a stranger in men. Mean age was 12.02 years old among females and 11.71 years old among men. Factors found to be associated with abuse: high parental alcohol consumption (OR = 3.37, 95% CI 1.40;8.07), violence toward the mother (OR = 4.49, 95% CI 1.54;13.10), female gender (OR = 2.47, 95% CI 1.17;5.24), being a victim of great domestic violence (OR = 3.58, 95% CI 1.32;9.67). High self-esteem was a protective factor (OR = 0.27, 95% CI 0.09;0.75). Overall sexual abuse occurs at the age of 12 in both males and females, and it is more frequent among females. Most victims do not report abuse.

    The prevalence of obesity in childhood and adolescence has increased in Mexico. This increase can be explained partly by a decrease in physical activity. The objective of this study was to assess the association between the prevalence of obesity and overweight with physical activity and inactivity among Mexican adolescents. We analyzed data from a longitudinal study with baseline and follow-up measures in 446 adolescents 12 to 17 years old, attending public schools in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. We collected information on weight, physical activity and demographic characteristics. Obesity and overweight were determined using as indicador the body mass index, and the cutoff points proposed by the International Obesity Task Force. The baseline prevalence of obesity or overweight was 37.22% (42.99% for males and 30.95% for females), and in the final measure 34.30% (38.46% for males and 32.28% for females). The median time of TV viewing was 3.90 h/d, with 0.73 h/d dedicated to vigorous physical activity and 0.58 h/d to moderate physical activity. Using logistic regression, after adjustment for obesity in the baseline measure, sex and clustering by school, we found no significant associations between the prevalence of obesity or overweight with time dedicated to TV viewing, vigorous or moderate physical activity. However, when conducting the analysis with an interaction term by sex, we found significantly lower risk of obesity or overweight associated with an increase in vigorous physical activity among males only (beta = 0.22, 95% CI (0.05, 0.89). Results suggest that vigorous physical activity may reduce the risk of obesity or overweight among male adolescents.

    Studies on experimental animals have found that organophosphate (OP) pesticides may act as endocrine disruptors; however, their effects on the human hormonal profile have not yet been adequately characterized. We evaluate the association between exposure to OP pesticides, measured through dialkyl phosphate (DAP) metabolites urinary levels, and the male hormone profile. A cross-sectional study was performed in 104 floriculturists of Morelos, Mexico. A structured questionnaire was applied to get information on sociodemographic characteristics, anthropometry, clinical history, alcohol and tobacco consumption, and work history. DAP metabolites [dimethylphosphate (DMP), dimethylthiophosphate, dimethyldithiophosphate, diethylphosphate (DEP), diethylthiophosphate (DETP) and diethyldithiophosphate] were determined using gas-liquid chromatography. Serum levels of FSH, LH, prolactin, testosterone, inhibin B and estradiol were determined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Multiple linear regression was used to study the association between DAP metabolite levels and male hormonal profile. Data were adjusted by p,p'-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethene serum levels and other potential confounders. There was a negative association between inhibin B and urinary levels of DMP, DEP, DETP and total DAP metabolites. DEP levels were negatively associated with serum FSH concentrations, but marginally and positively associated with those of testosterone. DETP was marginally associated with lower LH serum levels. There were no other significant associations among OP metabolites and serum hormone levels. Inhibin B and FSH vary according to levels of DAP metabolites in men occupationally exposed to OP pesticides. These results suggest that OP pesticides could act as endocrine disruptors in humans; however, most hormonal values fell within the wide normal range and associations were small. There is, therefore, a need for further investigation to elucidate their biological and clinical

    Geochemical analyses in coral skeletons have been used as a proxy of marine environmental conditions and to understand the mechanisms of adsorption of chemical elements into the coral skeletons and growth forms. However, little attention has been given to show the possible differences in the growth rates of corals based upon major, trace, rare earth element and microprobe analyses to examine the physical-chemical conditions influencing those differences. Our goal is to show how branch and fan corals incorporate elements into their skeletons comparing them with their coral growth rates. We determine the development of the skeletons of two branching (Acropora palmata, Acropora cervicornis) and one fan shaped (Gorgonia ventalina) colonies in the Puerto Morelos Reef, southeastern Mexico based upon geochemical data and the influence of terrigenous input into the species. Mg and Sr concentrations were the most statistically significant elements among the species studied suggesting that Mg concentration in Gorgonia ventalina is probably not linked to its growth rate. Mn content in the sea water is adsorbed by the three corals during past growth rates during high rainfall events. Sr concentration may be associated with the growth rate of Acropora palmata. Little differences in the growth rate in Acropora palmata may be associated with low rates of calcitization, negligible changes in the Sr concentration and little influence of temperature and water depth in its growth. Trace elements like Cr, Co, Ni and V adsorbed by the corals are influenced by natural concentration of these elements in the sea-water. Rare earth elements in the corals studied suggests abundant inorganic ions CO32- with variable pH in modern shallow well-oxygenated sea water. Lack of terrigenous input seawards is supported by geochemical, geomorphological and biological evidences. This study is an example of how geochemical data are useful to observe the differences in environmental conditions related to

    A microprobe (MB), major, trace and rare earth elements (REE) analyses were carried out in three coral species Acropora palmata, Acropora cervicornis and Gorgonia ventalina at Puerto Morelos, Reef, Southeastern Mexico. This was done to assess the degree in which the corals developed under the different chemical-physical natural and artificial conditions. The corals were cut at the top and middle and based upon the observations by using the MB analysis, results showed the highest concentrations of Ag, Cu, Cr, Ni, S, Sr, Zn y Zr in Gorgonia Ventalina suggesting an impact coming from the industrial discharges and/or rusting of boats in the area. The results of X-ray fluorescence analysis for major and trace elements showed that the Fe , Sr and Zr increase their content in the skeletons of Acropora palmata y Gorgonia ventalina also asociated with the presence of human activity since the area is composed mainly by carbonate source sediments. The rare earth elements (REE) analysis showed that the negative anomaly of Ce suggests a well oxygenated, highly oxidative modern shallow waters, and high nutrients related to suspended matter for Acropora Palmata, Acropora cervicornis y Gorgonia ventalina, The Positive Eu anomaly in the corals are due to the development of the reef linked to the concentration of waters enriched in La. The Nd/Yb ratio indicates a shallow water development for the corals. This is also supported by the Ce/Ce* vs. Pr/Pr* ratios that indicate shallow marine waters in the development of the three corals studied (Ce*= 0.5La+0.5Pr and Pr*= 0.5Ce+0.5Nd). Enrichment of heavy rare earth elements (Gd-Lu) in the corals may be associated with high pH values and CO, OH- ions in the sea water.

    Full Text Available El objetivo del artículo es presentar la vida y trayectoria del empresario agrícola Luis García Pimentel, reconocido representante de la elite regional porfiriana de Morelos, propietario de dos haciendas azucareras ubicadas al oriente de la entidad, la de Santa Ana Tenango y la de Santa Clara Montefalco. El personaje se estudió desde el ámbito de la historia económica, mediante una escrupulosa investigación en siete archivos, y en bibliografía concerniente y actualizada del tema. Cabe destacar que no existen estudios similares de empresarios porfiristas de Morelos y la importancia de documentos encontrados en el Archivo de Notarias de la Ciudad de México que aportan información relevante y desconocida en fuentes secundarias. La monografía muestra cómo antes de la revolución, García Pimentel se desempeñaba exitosamente en los negocios, conocía su entorno y lo aprovechaba para aumentar sus ganancias. Tras la lucha armada, sin embargo, no pudo recuperar el auge económico anterior.

    GIS is a powerful tool that may help to better manage natural resources. In this paper, we present a GIS model developed for the state of Morelos as an aid to determine whether a potential site, Loma de Mejia, met the Mexican Federal Guidelines. The Mexican Government has established federal guidelines for sanitary landfill site selection (NOM-083-SERMARNAT-2003). These guidelines were translated into a water-based Geographic Information System and applied to the state of Morelos, Mexico. For these examples, we used the SIGAM® (Sistema de Información Geográfico del Agua en México; a water-based GIS for Mexico) which has at least 60 layers from the National Water Commission (CONAGUA), the national mapping agency (INEGI; Instituto Nacional de Estadística, Geografía e Informática), NASA, and academic institutions. Results show that a GIS is a powerful tool that may allow federal, state and municipal policy makers to conduct an initial regional site reconnaissance rapidly. Once potential sites are selected, further characterization must be carried out in order to determine if proposed locations are suitable or not for a sanitary landfill. Based on the SIGAM© software, the Loma de Mejia would not comply with the Mexican Federal Guidelines.

    The present work describes the first known study to date on the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in surface water and wastewater of Cuernavaca, the capital of the state of Morelos (México). Selected pharmaceuticals (a total of 35) were extracted from the collected water samples with a generic solid phase extraction (SPE) protocol and determined in the sample extracts by means of high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS). A screening level risk assessment combining the measured environmental concentrations (MECs) with dose-response data based on predicted no-effect concentrations (PNECs) was also applied to estimate Hazard Quotients (HQs) for the pharmaceuticals detected in the investigated area. A total of twelve pharmaceuticals were found in the water samples analyzed, with detection frequencies above 78% and in most cases of 100%. Overall, the most abundant pharmaceuticals in surface water were the analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs naproxen (732-4880ng/L), acetaminophen (354-4460ng/L), and diclofenac (258-1398ng/L), and the lipid regulator bezafibrate (286-2100ng/L). On the contrary, other compounds like the β-blocker atenolol and the psychiatric drug carbamazepine were found at only a few ng or tens of ng per liter in the Apatlaco River. Despite the fact that some of the most abundant compounds showed good removal (>97%) during wastewater treatment, concentrations downstream the WWTP were only slightly lower than upstream. This indicates the existence of additional inputs of untreated wastewater into the river. Based on the obtained HQ-values, the concentrations of ibuprofen, sulfamethoxazole, diclofenac and naproxen present in the river could pose a high toxicity risk for the aquatic ecosystem. These findings highlight these pharmaceuticals as relevant organic contaminants in the area of study and the need to further monitor them in order to adopt appropriate measures to safeguard the

Los datos se restructuraron para construir una cohorte sintética que se estudió con métodos de sobrevida y unidades discretas de tiempo. Se obtuvieron riesgos relativos y sus intervalos de confianza de 95%, con modelos multivariados de regresión de Cox. RESULTADOS: Sesenta por ciento de los varones iniciaron el uso de alcohol en promedio a los 17 y el uso de tabaco a los 18 años de edad. Las mujeres iniciaron el uso de alcohol y tabaco un año después que los hombres. El uso de otras drogas ocurrió a los 19 años de edad en promedio en 5% de las mujeres y 13% de los varones. Nueve de cada 100 estudiantes que consumieron drogas ilegales iniciaron directamente sin antes haber usado alcohol ni tabaco. En general, los estudiantes usuarios de alcohol o tabaco, o ambos, presentaron mayor riesgo de iniciar el uso de otras drogas que los no usuarios (RR=6.72; IC 95%=4.13-10.93. CONCLUSIONES: Son claras las implicaciones potenciales del presente estudio al considerar que, junto con intervenciones encaminadas a disminuir el consumo de drogas, resulta igualmente importante retardar la edad de inicio de alcohol y tabaco por sexo, ya que mediante un nuevo enfoque brinda evidencia epidemiológica que relaciona el uso de estas sustancias con el uso posterior de otras drogas en estudiantes mexicanos.OBJECTIVE: To estimate the cumulative probability of occurrence of first use of alcohol and tobacco, and the risk of

The mature topography was partly buried by late Pliocene alluvium in the central part of the area, owing largely to local volcanism. Dissolution of limestone, dolomite, and anhydrite of the Cretaceous formations has produced sinks and poljes, some of which contain small lakes. Other karst features are also common, such as caves, caverns, underground rivers, and surficial lapies or karren. Drainage blocking by lava and polje development in late Pleistocene and Recent time produced new alluvial flats in this otherwise dissected region. The oldest rock unit in the region is the Texco schist series of late Paleozoic (?) age. It was folded, metamorphosed, foliated, intruded by dikes, and strongly eroded before the next unit, the Texco Viejo green volcanic series of Late Triassic (?) age, was deposited. Another period of metamorphism and erosion followed before the calcareous clastic sediments of the Upper Jurassic (?) Acahuizotla formation were laid down. The next unit consists of the partly phyllitic calcareous shale of the Acuitlapan formation, which is of Neocenian (?) age and rests with at least disconformity on the Acahuizotla formation. The overlying Aptian-Barresian Kochicalco formation of thin-bedded limestone appears to grade upward from the Acuitlapan formation, locally, but it seems to be unconformable elsewhere. All these units have small outcrops in the area mapped and were not studied in detail. Warping and erosion occurred before the overlying Morelos formation began to accumulate in early Albian time. The basal member is anhydrite in the eastern part of the area mapped, but limestone and dolomite were deposited elsewhere. The formation consists largely of shallow-water calcareous bank deposits, with a maximum thickness of about 900 m. Deposition ceased in early Cenomanian time and further warpi

    Full Text Available Este artículo estudia el mercado de seguros cuando las compañías aseguradoras (aseguradoras venden sus pólizas por medio de agencias de seguros (agencias o agentes. Analiza los efectos de las comisiones por ventas pagadas a las agencias en las primas de seguros y en el bienestar del consumidor. Se considera el comportamiento oportunista de las agencias al vender las pólizas emitidas por la aseguradora que le ofrece la comisión mas alta. Se consideran también diferentes estructuras de mercado: un duopolio de aseguradoras que compiten en comisiones (competencia entre aseguradoras, la colusión entre aseguradoras con las agencias manteniendose independientes (colusión horizontal o monopolio de aseguradoras y la colusión entre aseguradoras y agencias (integración vertical o agentes exclusivos. Mostramos que la competencia entre aseguradoras y la integración vertical generan primas más altas que la colusión horizontal. Además, mostramos que la comisión óptima desde del punto de vista del consumidor pueda ser mayor que la comisión generada por cualquiera de las tres estructuras de mercado antes señaladas

    La autoeficacia se le ha identificado como uno de los factores que puede facilitar o dificultar llevar a cabo sexo más seguro. Estudios revelan que las personas que están el relaciones estables usan métodos de protección menos frecuente que quienes tienen parejas casuales. Realizamos un estudio con 447 personas heterosexuales activas sexualmente. Les administramos un cuestionario dirigido a medir el comportamiento sexual, el uso del condón masculino y la práctica de la masturbación mutua, y la autoeficacia para llevar a cabo estas conductas. Los resultados reflejan que los hombres están más activos sexualmente y que el uso del condón y la práctica de la masturbación mutua como alternativa de sexo más seguro es muy baja. En los casos donde se usa el condón esta práctica es realizada en su mayoría por las personas que se encuentran en una relación de pareja casual. No obstante, los/las participantes tienen altos niveles de autoeficacia hacia ambas prácticas. Aunque la autoeficacia es uno de los factores que incide en decidir llevar a cabo sexo más seguro, ésta no es suficiente para que esta meta se logre. PMID:22837585

El caso de estudio presentado es el de la Caja del Seguro Obrero Obligatorio, o la historia de cómo a partir de la concepción de una institucionalidad vinculada al Estado asistencialista de la primera mitad del siglo XX, y de su correspondiente estructura administrativa, se construye una nueva realidad, sin precedente, donde la protección de la vida y el despliegue de los instrumentos requeridos convocan un correlato en arquitectura, vestuario y diseño de mobiliario, una realidad “otra” que se desarrolla o se desenvuelve y dispersa en el territorio, a partir de una concepción abstracta inicial, y que repercute en expresiones de diseño de extraordinaria calidad y personalidad.

    To estimate the effect of Seguro Popular Program (SP) on the probability of health spending (HE), the excessive expenditure on health (EEH) and the amount of health spending. Materials and methods. Cross-sectional analysis was carried out using data from the ENSANUT 2012. Propensity score matching was used to estimate the effect of SP (n=12.250). We estimated the average effect on SP homes (treated) and differences in median spending. SP reduces the likelihood of HE in 3.6 and 7.1% in households with patients diagnosed with DM and/or hypertension, respectively. The reduction in EEH was 36% at national level. This reduction was 46.5 and 41.7% among households with hospitalized patients and those reporting a sick member. SP has a positive effect, protecting households from having either HE or EEH among those with greater health needs. However, there are still some challenges for the SP, which include improving access to services for low-income population.

  17. Analysis of Wedge-like Response in Mexico City during the September 19th, 2017 Puebla-Morelos Earthquake

    The September 19th, 2017 Puebla-Morelos earthquake (Mw7.1) caused severe structural and nonstructural damage in Mexico City in the Transition and border of the Lake geotechnical zones. Previously recorded ground motion had not reached similar high intensities. The Transition zone surrounds the base of mountain ranges and is composed of alluvial sands and silts, limited by layers of hard soil of the Hill Zone and highly compressible clay deposits of the Lake Zone. These transition configurations are modeled as dipping layers where the soft sediments progressively thicken away from the edge.We present a preliminary analysis of 2D SH and P-SV dipping layer models with homogeneous and lateral variations that resemble the known structure of the basin. Our results show the emergence of surface waves in the edges, and the spread of the energy, broadening the frequency range as compared to 1D models. The latter is a plausible explanation of the frequency content in the recorded ground motion in sites of observed damage. Acknowledgments: Records used in this research are obtained, processed and maintained by the Seismic Instrumentation Unit of the Institute of Engineering at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

  18. Bend Faulting at the Edge of a Flat Slab: The 2017 Mw7.1 Puebla-Morelos, Mexico Earthquake

    We present results of a slip model from joint inversion of strong motion and static Global Positioning System data for the Mw7.1 Puebla-Morelos earthquake. We find that the earthquake nucleates at the bottom of the oceanic crust or within the oceanic mantle with most of the moment release occurring within the oceanic mantle. Given its location at the edge of the flat slab, the earthquake is likely the result of bending stresses occurring at the transition from flat slab subduction to steeply dipping subduction. The event strikes obliquely to the slab, we find a good agreement between the seafloor fabric offshore the source region and the strike of the earthquake. We argue that the event likely reactivated a fault first created during seafloor formation. We hypothesize that large bending-related events at the edge of the flat slab are more likely in areas of low misalignment between the seafloor fabric and the slab strike where reactivation of preexisting structures is favored. This hypothesis predicts decreased likelihood of bending-related events northwest of the 2017 source region but also suggests that they should be more likely southeast of the 2017 source region.

    Full Text Available This research is an ethnozoologic study based on the analysis of the traditional knowledge that the autochthonous inhabitants of the community of Zacualpan de Amilpas, Morelos, Mexico, have in what refers to the native birds and mammals associated with groves. The methodology was applied in four stages: contact with the pertinent authorities, identification of key informants, grove survey, interviewing and sampling to observe and corroborate the species identified by the informants. Thus, 34 bird common names pertaining to 26 species, 6 orders and 15 families were registered. Passeriformes was the order with the highest species number, and Tyrannidae and Icteridae were the most representative families. For mammals, 16 common names were recognized pertaining to 18 species, 6 orders and 10 families; the order Carnivora and the family Mephitidae had the largest species number. The use values registered were: alimentary, medicinal, ornamental and as good-luck charms. Species are hunted using shotguns and slingshots. Community members recognize three environmental services (seed dispersion, insect predation and pollination that 16 species carry out. We conclude that the reassessment of local traditional knowledge is important for the use, management and conservation of birds and mammals associated with traditional groves.

    Full Text Available Nos últimos anos as grandes empresas da África do Sul têm vindo a criar uma variedade de apólices de seguro que visa abranger aqueles até então excluídos, na sua maioria não-brancos pobres e de classe média. Neste artigo analiso as definições de custos e riscos, bem como a tentativa de poupar custos contando com o capital social dos mais pobres. Esta análise trará uma nova dimensão aos já acesos debates em torno do risco, desigualdade e capital social. A pesquisa levada a cabo junto de clientes que habitam em townships da Cidade do Cabo, bem como de correctores de seguros, actuários e outros envolvidos no mundo dos seguros, demonstra de que forma os custos das apólices estão directamente relacionados com a grande variedade de riscos e adversidades a que os mais carenciados estão sujeitos. Demonstra ainda o modo como as seguradoras mobilizam o seu capital social para ganhar acesso a novos mercados - por vezes com consequências desastrosas - e têm, em simultâneo, uma complexidade burocrática que dificulta o recebimento das compensações por parte dos clientes. Este estudo sugere, contra-intuitivamente, que a rápida expansão do mercado dos seguros pode agravar os riscos a que os mais pobres estão expostos e aumentar as desigualdades.Recently, large-scale South African companies are establishing a myriad of policies that aim to incorporate the previously excluded, mostly non-White, poor and middle classes. Here I examine definitions of risks and costs, as well as the attempt to save costs by relying on social capital among the poor. This casts a new light on lively debates on risk, inequality, and social capital. Research among clients living in the townships of Cape Town, as well as among insurance brokers, actuaries, and others involved in the world of insurance, reveal how policy costs are directly related to the many risks and adversities that the poor are exposed to. It reveals how insurers mobilize social capital to

Metodología: estudio descriptivo de corte transversal que utilizó fuentes de información secundaria y primaria. Dos categorías centrales de análisis se definieron para los propósitos del estudio: fuerza laboral ocupada y fuerza laboral cesante. Para los fines pertinentes, se aplicaron técnicas de regresión logística y de estimación no paramétrica tipo Kaplan-Meier de tablas de supervivencia. Resultados: los cesantes de sexo femenino, con edad superior a los 44 años, educación media y experiencia laboral en los sectores de la industria y el comercio, fueron los que registraron mayores probabilidades de permanecer desempleados y, por tanto, mayor tiempo promedio de búsqueda de empleo. Discusión: los principales hallazgos del estudio y su relación con otros de carácter local y nacional evidencian que buena parte del desempleo en Colombia es de larga duración y este precedente debería orientar la discusión sobre los alcances y las características de un seguro de desempleo.

    Full Text Available Los estudios relacionados con los cambios progresivos en la cobertura vegetal y de uso de suelo han cobrado importancia en la investigación ambiental, ya que permiten evaluar las tendencias espacio-temporales de procesos como la deforestación y degradación ambiental, provocadas por actividades humanas. En el presente estudio, se hace una descripción de los cambios de cobertura y uso del suelo en el estado de Morelos durante el periodo 2000-2009. Se identifican 14 clases de coberturas vegetales y usos del suelo, que incluyen cuerpos de agua, los cuales no se consideran en el análisis y se registran dos coberturas que ganan terreno: agricultura, con un incremento de 1 373 ha y urbano, con 189 ha; las que más se transforman son selva baja (1 841 ha y los bosques, con 858 ha. La dinámica del cambio es compleja y se identifican factores socioambientales y de tenencia de la tierra como las causas principales. Datos satelitales multiespectrales de LANDSAT se usaron para mapear y analizar los cambios de uso de suelo producidos en los años 2000 y 2009, mediante el software ESRI ARCMAP 10. Se empleó la técnica de clasificación supervisada, basada en el algoritmo de máxima verosimilitud. La información sobre el uso de cobertura vegetal y uso del suelo así como la identificación de las posibilidades para su uso óptimo, obtenida con percepción remota y sistemas de información geográfica, es esencial para la selección, planificación y ejecución de planes de ordenamiento territorial, desarrollo, conservación y aprovechamiento de recursos naturales, con el propósito de satisfacer la creciente demanda de las necesidades básicas del hombre, así como su bienestar.

Among other diseases, SP covers free diagnostics, hospitalization and medical treatmentfor DM. By 2015, 57.1 million people in the country were enrolled in SP.4 In this letter we report the annual percent change (APC of DM’s ASMR from 1999 to 2014 in Mexicans aged 20 to 79 to determine whether the introduction of SP in 2004 has impacted DM mortality.

    To determine the impact of Seguro Popular (SPS) on catastrophic and impoverishing household expenditures and on the financial protection of the Mexican health system. The propensity score matching (PSM) method was applied to the population affiliated to SPS to determine the program's attributable effect on health expenditure. This analysis uses the National Household Income and Expenditure Survey (ENIGH) during 2004-2012, conducted by Mexico's National Institute of Statistics andGeography (INEGI). It was found that SPS has a significant effect on reducing the likelihood that households will incur impoverishing expenditures. A negative effect on catastrophic expenditures was also found, but it was not statistically significant. This paper shows the effect that SPS, in particular health insurance, has as an instrument of financial protection. Future studies using longer periods of ENIGH data should analyze the persistence of high out-of-pocket expenditure.

    This study reports initial results of combined Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) and vertical electrical sounding (VES), geophysical characterization of the Quintana Roo coastal aquifer, with the aim of establishing effective protocols for subsequent surveys in the area, through the association of TDEM and VES. The high resistivity of the carbonate terrain, combined with the very low resistivity range of fresh-water and sea-water, are ideal to use both tools in combination. The results show that both methods used in a combination may provide a useful tool for hydrogeologial studies. In this survey we were able to identifiy a fracture 100 m x 40 m, that was correlated to fresh-water discharges in to the Puerto Morelos Reef lagoon.

    Full Text Available Las actividades acuáticas recreativas pueden ofrecer beneficios considerables para la salud y el bienestar de las personas. Por ejemplo, los lagos y los ríos pueden brindar un ambiente adecuado para el descanso, la actividad física y el esparcimiento. Además, muchos países de todas las latitudes dependen de sus extensas playas cubiertas de arena para atraer a los turistas, y los desembolsos de esos visitantes contribuyen a la economía local. Sin embargo, esas actividades acuáticas también pueden representar riesgos para la salud, ya que aguas contaminadas o poco seguras en lugares de recreo pueden conducir a infecciones y enfermedades, lesiones e incluso la muerte. Para ayudar a lidiar con este tipo de problemas, la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS emitió recientemente un informe titulado Directrices para un Medio Acuático Recreativo Seguro (Guidelines for Safe Recreational Water Environments. El texto está dirigido a reducir las muertes y lesiones de los bañistas, así como a hacer las playas y los espacios recreativos acuáticos más seguros para el descanso, los ejercicios y el esparcimiento. El nuevo informe de la OMS trata sobre riesgos tales como el de ahogarse y recibir lesiones; la exposición al frío, el calor y las radiaciones solares; la calidad del agua; la contaminación de la arena de las playas; y la exposición a algas, agentes químicos y físicos, así como a organismos acuáticos peligrosos. Las directrices propuestas en el informe de la OMS deben servir de base para desarrollar estrategias nacionales e internacionales -como estándares y regulaciones-, para controlar los riesgos para la salud que se pueden encontrar en los medios acuáticos de recreo y, al mismo tiempo, deben ofrecer un marco de trabajo para las autoridades locales encargadas de tomar decisiones.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a new heavy-tailed distribution is used to model data with a strong right tail, as often occurs in practical situations. The distribution proposed is derived from the lognormal distribution, by using the Marshall and Olkin procedure. Some basic properties of this new distribution are obtained and we present situations where this new distribution correctly reflects the sample behaviour for the right tail probability. An application of the model to dental insurance data is presented and analysed in depth. We conclude that the generalized lognormal distribution proposed is a distribution that should be taken into account among other possible distributions for insurance data in which the properties of a heavy-tailed distribution are present. || Presentamos una nueva distribución lognormal con colas pesadas que se adapta bien a muchas situaciones prácticas en el campo de los seguros.

    The September 7 Tehuantepec, Mexico (M=8.1) and the September 19 Morelos-Puebla, Mexico (M=7.1) earthquakes ruptured with extensional faulting within the Cocos Plate at 70-km and 50-km depth, as it subducts beneath the continental North American Plate. Both earthquakes caused significant damage and loss of life. These events were followed by a M=6.1 extensional earthquake at only 10-km depth in Oaxaca on September 23, 2017. While the Morelos-Puebla earthquake was likely too far away to be statically triggered by the Tehuantepec earthquake, initial Coulomb stress analyses show that the M=6.1 event may have been an aftershock of the Tehuantepec earthquake. Many questions remain about these earthquakes, including: Did the Cocos Plate earthquakes load the upper plate, and could they possibly trigger an equal or larger earthquake on the plate interface? Are these the result of plate bending? Do the aftershocks migrate to the locked zone in the subduction zone? Why did the intermediate depth earthquakes create so much damage? Are these earthquakes linked by dynamic stresses? Is it possible that a potential slow-slip event triggered both events? To address some of these questions, we deployed 10 broadband seismometers near the epicenter of the Tehuantepec, Mexico earthquake and 51 UTEP-owned nodes (5-Hz, 3-component geophones) to record aftershocks and augment networks deployed by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). The 10 broadband instruments will be deployed for 6 months, while the nodes were deployed 25 days. The relative ease-of-deployment and larger numbers of the nodes allowed us to deploy them quickly in the area near the M=6.1 Oaxaca earthquake, just a few days after that earthquake struck. We deployed them near the heavily-damaged cities of Juchitan, Ixtaltepec, and Ixtepec as well as in Tehuantepec and Salina Cruz, Oaxaca in order to test their capabilities for site characterization and aftershock studies. This is the first test of these

La concentración de cationes, aniones y elementos traza se determinó por ICP-MS. Los resultados indican que la concentración de fluoruro, y temperatura del agua subterránea, son mayores en los pozos que extraen agua sin interrupción y menor en aquéllos que bombean solo nueve horas-día. La variación de estos parámetros sugiere que los primeros extraen agua de un flujo con mayor profundidad de recorrido con respecto al agua de otros pozos, indicando que el incremento en el tiempo de extracción induce un flujo vertical de agua (ascendente permitiendo que en tales pozos se descargue un sistema de flujo más profundo, cuyo contenido de fluoruro y valor de temperatura son sensiblemente mayores al resto de los demás pozos. Como conclusión, la fuente del fluoruro al agua subterránea en esta región está en las rocas que conforman del relieve que rodea la planicie y principalmente en aquel ubicado fuera de la planicie hacia el noreste (Sierra Nevada. El fluoruro es liberado al agua subterránea por el proceso del intemperismo químico de rocas ígneas intermedias y félsicas.

    Measure and compare the percentage of prescriptions fully dispensed to persons with and without Popular Health Insurance (SPS in Spanish) who use ambulatory and general hospital services associated with the Mexico State Health Services (SESA in Spanish), and taking into account insurance status. SESA user satisfaction was also measured with respect to access to medication. Information for the study was taken from four surveys of SESA ambulatory and hospital units that included probabilistic samples with state representativity. Samples of ambulatory units were selected by stratification according to level of care and association to the SPS service network. The findings indicate that the percentage of prescriptions fully dispensed in SESA ambulatory units has improved, reaching approximately 90%, especially among those units offering services to persons affiliated with SPS. Nevertheless, these percentages continue to be lower than those of ambulatory units associated with social security institutions. Percentages of prescriptions fully dispensed have also improved in SESA hospital units, but continue to be relatively low. In nearly all states, as the percentage of prescriptions fully dispensed has increased, user satisfaction with access to medication has also improved. In 2006 more than 50% of the states had high levels of fully dispensed prescriptions among persons with SPS (> or =90%). The more significant problem exists among hospitals, since only 44% of users who received a prescription in SESA hospitals in 2006 had their prescriptions fully dispensed. This finding requires a review of SPS medication policies, which have favored highly prescribed low-cost medications at ambulatory services at the expense of higher cost and more therapeutically effective medications for hospital care, the latter having a greater impact on household budgets.

En tal sentido, el objetivo general de este trabajo es explorar mediante una estrategia cualitativa las representaciones respecto de la cuestión de la seguridad en el sector de los adultos mayores. Por su parte, y bajo el supuesto de que el miedo al delito no puede ser vinculado únicamente al objeto concreto mediante el cual éste se manifiesta, se indaga en nuevas dimensiones de análisis que permitan dar cuenta de la "sensación de inseguridad" más allá de la cuestión de la criminalidad dentro de este sector etario.Ever since the implementation of the victimization surveys (VS, the victimization literature acknowledges the paradox whereby the social groups less vulnerable to crime (women and the elderly, for the most part exhibit high levels of fear and, on the contrary, those most susceptible to crime (youngsters and males manifest lower levels of fear. The goal of this paper is to explore a range of representations about the "security" issue held by the elderly with a qualitative strategy. On the other hand, on the assumption that fear of crime cannot be solely linked to the actual object through which this is manifested, I examine new analytical dimensions accounting for "fear of crime" above and beyond the criminality issue within this age class.

    In 2003, Mexico's Seguro Popular de Salud (SPS), was launched as an innovative financial mechanism implemented to channel new funds to provide health insurance to 50 million Mexicans and to reduce systemic financial inequities. The objective of this article is to understand the complexity and dynamics that contributed to the adaptation of the policy in the implementation stage, how these changes occurred, and why, from a complex and adaptive systems perspective. A complex adaptive systems (CAS) framework was used to carry out a secondary analysis of data obtained from four SPS's implementation evaluations. We first identified key actors, their roles, incentives and power, and their responses to the policy and guidelines. We then developed a causal loop diagram to disentangle the feedback dynamics associated with the modifications of the policy implementation which we then analyzed using a CAS perspective. Implementation variations were identified in seven core design features during the first 10 years of implementation period, and in each case, the SPS's central coordination introduced modifications in response to the reactions of the different actors. We identified several CAS phenomena associated with these changes including phase transitions, network emergence, resistance to change, history dependence, and feedback loops. Our findings generate valuable lessons to policy implementation processes, especially those involving a monetary component, where the emergence of coping mechanisms and other CAS phenomena inevitably lead to modifications of policies and their interpretation by those who implement them. These include the difficulty of implementing strategies that aim to pool funds through solidarity among beneficiaries where the rich support the poor when there are no incentives for the rich to do so. Also, how resistance to change and history dependence can pose significant challenges to implementing changes, where the local actors use their significant power

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Conocer la prevalencia de la violencia durante el noviazgo y su nexo con la depresión y las conductas de riesgo en una muestra de estudiantes femeninas del estado de Morelos. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: El estudio se efectuó en una cohorte de 13 293 estudiantes de 12 a 24 años de edad de escuelas públicas del estado de Morelos durante el ciclo escolar 1998-1999. Los participantes provienen de una selección aleatoria de 260 escuelas secundarias, 92 escuelas preparatorias y una universidad. Para fines de la investigación se seleccionó a un total de 4 587 alumnas, todas con el antecedente de relaciones de noviazgo. Para controlar las posibles variables de confusión, se recurrió a un análisis de regresión logística múltiple. RESULTADOS: La prevalencia total de violencia durante el noviazgo en mujeres de escuelas públicas de Morelos fue de 28%. Las siguientes variables se vincularon con violencia durante el noviazgo: depresión (RM=1.92; IC95% 1.61-2.28; consumo de tabaco (RM=1.31; IC95% 1.06-1.60; abuso de alcohol (RM=1.30; IC95% 1.12-1.51; bajo rendimiento escolar (promedio de calificaciones de 7 o menor (RM=1.25; IC95% 1.03-1.52; antecedente de relaciones sexuales (RM=1.52; IC95% 1.26-1.82. CONCLUSIONES: Los resultados indican con claridad que las mujeres sufren violencia de pareja desde las relaciones de noviazgo. Los profesionales de la salud y la educación requieren establecer medidas de intervención para prevenir y atender el problema de la violencia en el noviazgo entre las estudiantes; tales medidas deben tomar en cuenta la relación entre la depresión y la violencia, además del conjunto de comportamientos riesgosos relacionados.OBJECTIVE: Determine the prevalence of dating violence and its association with depression and various risk behaviors in a sample of female students from the state of Morelos.

    Full Text Available A indústria de seguros vem respondendo à crescente exposição deliberada ao risco no contexto do turismo de aventura. Os seguros constituem apenas uma das possíveis aplicações de tecnologias do risco, mas têm se tornado um dos elementos centrais nos diferentes tipos de contratos estabelecidos pelas operadoras de turismo. Procuramos, neste artigo, responder à pergunta: de quem é a responsabilidade pelos danos, quando o risco é ativamente procurado como forma de lazer? Abordaremos inicialmente a inserção da proposta de estudo no contexto da literatura sobre risco e aspectos gerais da regulação do turismo de aventura no Brasil. A seguir, por meio de estudo de caso de uma operadora de turismo de aventura, analisaremos como é garantida a segurança do usuário no jogo de relações entre mercado de turismo, seguros e Estado. Concluiremos com breves considerações sobre a partilha dos danos e responsabilidades entre operadoras de seguros e de turismo, Estado e usuários, apontando ainda para possíveis mudanças no cenário atualmente configurado.The insurance industry has been quick to respond to the increase in deliberate exposure to risk in the context of adventure tourism. Although insurance is only one aspect of the possible applications of risk technologies, it has become a central element in the variety of contracts established between tourism operators and clients. This article addresses the question: who has responsibility for damages incurred when risk is actively sought in leisure pursuits? Initially we'll discuss risk-adventure in the context of the literature on risk and the regulation of adventure tourism in Brazil. Based on a case study of a tourism office offering leisure activities in nature, it proceeds with an analysis of how client safety is guaranteed in the network of relationships involving tourism market, insurance industry and State regulation. It concludes with brief considerations about the distribution of

    Herranz Peinado, Patricia

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available España ha seguido la tendencia de otros países en cuanto a la cobertura de las personas dependientes, es decir, aquellas que necesitan ayuda para realizar las tareas básicas de la vida diaria, y lo ha hecho mediante la aprobación de la Ley de Promoción de la Autonomía Personal y Atención a las personas en situación de Dependencia, que se basa en la financiación pública. A pesar de los esfuerzos para el desarrollo de la Ley, ésta no está dando los frutos que debiera haber dado y se hace necesaria la existencia de productos privados de cobertura que puedan atender a las necesidades de aquellos que los demandan. Dado los escasos estudios que sobre este tema existen todavía en nuestro país, el establecer una aproximación a las primas de un seguro privado de dependencia puede servir de referencia para el análisis de su comercialización por parte de las aseguradoras. En este trabajo se trata de analizar una serie de cuestiones que den respuesta a dos objetivos. Por una parte, establecer un modelo financiero-actuarial que sirva como apoyo en el diseño de productos privados que cubran la dependencia y, por otra, realizar una aproximación a las bases técnicas actuariales que lleven a la cuantificación de las primas. = Spain has followed the trend of other countries about long term care, that is, people who need help to perform the basic tasks of daily living. In December 2006, Spanish Parliament approved the law called Ley de Promoción de la Autonomía Personal y Atención a las personas en situación de Dependencia, with public financing. This law is not producing the expected results, and it makes necessary the existence of private insurance. Currently, there are few studies on long term care in our country. An approach to premiums of a private insurance can serve as reference for the studies by insurers. This work tries to study a series of questions responding simultaneously to two goals, establishing an actuarial model and, on

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene como objetivo presentar algunos mecanismos de mercado que pueden inducir a mejorar la confiabilidad en el mercado de generación de electricidad spot colombiano; estos son:1 la provisión de información adicional al precio unitario spot, en un mercado que por su naturaleza es aleatorio, y 2 seguros de confiabilidad, al reconocerse que las demandas son altamente inflexibles. También se desarrolla una aplicación para mostrar cómo operarían en la práctica estos mecanismos y se determinan las restricciones que se deben corregir para que sean operativos. Este programa de seguros garantiza una confiabilidad eficiente, provee información importante para los agentes del mercado y reglas de asignación que minimizan los costos económicos en caso de fallas en la capacidad de generación de electricidad, que podrían ser aplicados a mercados de generación de electricidad como el colombiano, donde se han tenido recurrentes crisis de abastecimiento y se ha pensado profundizar en las reformas de este mercado.

    2018-01-01

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se analizan los efectos de la introducción de un esquema de ajuste (experience rating en las contribuciones patronales al seguro de salud. Para ello, se desarrolla un modelo de búsqueda y emparejamiento en un mercado de trabajo segmentado. En el segmento donde los empleos son más riesgosos, las ausencias por enfermedad son más frecuentes y la producción media es más baja. El modelo es calibrado para Francia y los resultados de las simulaciones muestran que la introducción de este esquema mejora levemente la producción y el empleo. En términos cuantitativos, una variación del 1 % en la tasa de experience rating induce una reducción de 0,48 % en la duración del desempleo y de 1,07 % en los días de ausencia, así como un aumento de 0,1 % en la producción. Finalmente, se encuentra que esta política conduce también a un desempeño económico ligeramente mejor que la privatización del seguro de salud

    Full Text Available Um dos maiores desafios da sociedade atual é o enfrentamento das adversidades causadas pelos desastres. Os estabelecimentos de saúde, principalmente os hospitais, são considerados essenciais nessas situações. Este trabalho discute os princípios da arquitetura do hospital seguro frente aos desastres, como propõem a Organização Mundial da Saúde e a Organização Pan-Americana da Saúde. Projetar um hospital seguro exige ações multidisciplinares, com envolvimento de administradores, arquitetos, engenheiros, médicos e enfermeiros. O planejamento de cada hospital pressupõe uma análise de riscos e aspectos de segurança específicos. Também é importante agregar a biossegurança ao conceito de hospital seguro. O equilíbrio entre aspectos arquitetônicos e biossegurança permite a compreensão dos riscos associados ao trabalho, facilitando o dimensionamento de espaços para suportar as ações de resposta frente às emergências. Em suma, a programação de um hospital seguro requer uma síntese de conhecimentos que relacionam diversos saberes, entre eles os da biossegurança e da arquitetura hospitalar. Esses princípios devem embasar as indagações sobre o hospital seguro e o planejamento de projetos arquitetônicos com foco na manutenção das instalações em capacidade máxima mesmo diante de situações adversas.One of the biggest challenges in today’s society is facing adversity caused by disasters.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: The main objective of this study was to assess people's willingness to join a community-based health insurance (CHI model in El Páramo, a rural area in Ecuador, and to determine factors influencing this willingness. A second objective was to identify people's understanding and attitudes toward the presented CHI model. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was carried out using a structured questionnaire. Of an estimated 829 households, 210 were randomly selected by two-stage cluster sampling. Attitudes toward the scheme were assessed. Information on factors possibly influencing willingness to join was collected and related to the willingness to join. To gain an insight into a respondent's possible ability to pay, health care expenditure on the last illness episode was assessed. Feasibility was defined as at least 50% of household heads willing to join the scheme. RESULTS: Willingness to join the CHI model for US$30 per year was 69.3%. With affiliation, 92.2% of interviewees stated that they would visit the local health facility more often. Willingness to join was found to be negatively associated with education. Other variables showed no significant association with willingness to join. The study showed a positive attitude toward the CHI scheme. Substantial health care expenditures on the last illness episode were documented. CONCLUSIONS: The investigation concludes that CHI in the study region is feasible. However, enrollments are likely to be lower than the stated willingness to join. Still, a CHI scheme should present an interesting financing alternative in rural areas where services are scarce and difficult to sustain.OBJETIVO: El objetivo principal de este estudio fue evaluar la voluntad de los habitantes de El Páramo, una zona rural en el Ecuador, de participar en un seguro de salud comunitario y determinar los factores que influían en dicha voluntad.

MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: La información del estudio procede de cuatro encuestas de unidades ambulatorias y hospitalarias de los SESA que contaron con muestras probabilísticas de representatividad estatal. Las muestras de las unidades ambulatorias se seleccionaron mediante estratificación por nivel de atención y por condición de pertenencia a la red de servicios del SPS. RESULTADOS: Los hallazgos indican que el porcentaje de recetas completamente surtidas ha mejorado en las unidades ambulatorias de los SESA, sobre todo en aquellas que ofrecen servicios a los afiliados al SPS y que alcanzan porcentajes de casi 90%. Estos porcentajes, sin embargo, siguen siendo inferiores a los de las unidades ambulatorias de las instituciones de seguridad social. Los porcentajes de recetas surtidas en las unidades hospitalarias de los SESA también han mejorado, pero siguen siendo relativamente bajos. En casi todas las entidades federativas, conforme se ha incrementado el porcentaje de surtimiento completo de recetas, ha aumentado la satisfacción de los usuarios con el acceso a los medicamentos. CONCLUSIONES: En 2006, más de 50% de las entidades federativas presentaron altos niveles de surtimiento completo de recetas entre los afiliados al SPS (>90%. El mayor problema en este sentido se encuentra en los hospitales, ya que sólo 44% de los usuarios que recibieron una prescripción en los hospitales de los SESA en 2006 obtuvieron el surtimiento completo de sus recetas. Este hallazgo obliga a revisar la política de medicamentos del SPS, que ha privilegiado la inclusión de claves de

At the same time, these relations make possible a identity reconfiguration, a time that had forged experiences of solidarity, resistance and perception of the proper condition where the indians and the banished ones lived.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using the SMNG National Survey, out-the-pocket and catastrophic spending on child health were calculated using several definitions. Results are presented by socioeconomic level, rural and urban areas and for Oportunidades beneficiaries. RESULTS: About 63.3% of households spent an average annual amount of 3320 Mexican pesos (MEX$ on healthcare for beneficiary children. Between 4.3 and 11.6% of households experienced catastrophic spending, depending on the definition adopted. Due to economic trouble, 15.5% of households postponed and 10.0% cancelled medical care for their child. CONCLUSIONS: Even though children are affiliated to the SMNG, the economic burden associated with attending their health is still an issue for families.OBJETIVO: Analizar el gasto en salud y gasto catastrófico en los niños beneficiarios del Seguro Médico para una Nueva Generación (SMNG, programa creado en 2007 para niños sin seguridad social nacidos a partir del 1o de diciembre de 2006.

    Low birth weight has been an enigma for science over time. There have been many researches on its causes and its effects. Low birth weight is an indicator that predicts the probability of a child surviving. In fact, there is an exponential relationship between weight deficit, gestational age, and perinatal mortality. Multiple logistic regression is one of the most expressive and versatile statistical instruments available for the analysis of data in both clinical and epidemiology settings, as well as in public health. To assess in a multivariate fashion the importance of 17 independent variables in low birth weight (dependent variable) of children born in the Mayan municipality of José María Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Analytical observational epidemiological cohort study with retrospective temporality. Births that met the inclusion criteria occurred in the "Hospital Integral Jose Maria Morelos" of the Ministry of Health corresponding to the Maya municipality of Jose Maria Morelos during the period from August 1, 2014 to July 31, 2015. The total number of newborns recorded was 1,147; 84 of which (7.32%) had low birth weight. To estimate the independent association between the explanatory variables (potential risk factors) and the response variable, a multiple logistic regression analysis was performed using the IBM SPSS Statistics 22 software. In ascending numerical order values of odds ratio > 1 indicated the positive contribution of explanatory variables or possible risk factors: "unmarried" marital status (1.076, 95% confidence interval: 0.550 to 2.104); age at menarche ≤ 12 years (1.08, 95% confidence interval: 0.64 to 1.84); history of abortion(s) (1.14, 95% confidence interval: 0.44 to 2.93); maternal weight < 50 kg (1.51, 95% confidence interval: 0.83 to 2.76); number of prenatal consultations ≤ 5 (1.86, 95% confidence interval: 0.94 to 3.66); maternal age ≥ 36 years (3.5, 95% confidence interval: 0.40 to 30.47); maternal age ≤ 19 years (3

    Full Text Available Zooplankton sampling was carried out monthly from January to December 1990 at station A near the coastline, and station B near the reef barrier, in a tropical coral reef lagoon in the Mexican Caribbean Sea. Samplings were made at midnight, near surface, with a conical net (mouth 0.40 m, mesh 330 µm for 10 min. Salinity varied from 35.1 to 36.3 psu and temperature from 26.3 to 30.2 ºC. The Bray-Curtis test applied to these results has defined two seasons: the dry season from November to May, and the wet season from June to October. A total of 37 zooplankton groups were found. Copepods were the most abundant contributing 49.0% of the total capture with Acartia espinata, Calanopia americana and Farranula gracilis as the most numerous. In the total zooplankton, however, cirripeds captured in only 15 samples of 24 were second in abundance (20.9%. Decapods, present all year-round and more abundant during the wet season, were third and contributed 19.2%. The rest of the groups were scarce and only amphipods (2.4% and larvaceans (2.0% were relatively abundant. The abundance of captured organisms correlated with the abiotic factors measured, thus, in the dry season, abundance was lower (mean 7.3 orgs/m3, while in the wet season the mean catch was 36.8 orgs/m3.

En México, el empleo de estos instrumentos no se ha documentado, por lo que en este trabajo se desarrolla un marco conceptual-teórico para la instrumentación de seguros ganaderos paramétricos satelitales, con la finalidad de exponer sus ventajas y delimitar sus alcances. Para tal fin, se aplicaron los conceptos de unidad de riesgo, umbral de pago y elementos asociados al seguro, para establecer el riesgo climático que se asocia a las actividades agropecuarias, principalmente por sequías. Bajo el requerimiento crítico de una relación lineal entre el índice espectral y la biomasa vegetal, sin constante aditiva, se usó el índice espectral NDVIcp, optimizado por diversos efectos, lo que dio lugar al desarrollo de un esquema de seguro técnicamente sólido, sin el requisito de contar con información histórica de producción agropecuaria y que, además, refleja fielmente la realidad en campo. Todo lo anterior, permitió sentar las bases para el diseño de un seguro ganadero paramétrico satelital de tipo catastrófico sólido, transparente y conceptualmente accesible a los usuarios del mismo.

    Breast cancer mortality has increased in women 25 years and over, and since 2006 it has surpassed cervical cancer. Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease, with several clinical and histological presentations that require a thorough study of all clinical and pathological parameters, including immunohistochemistry to classify it into subtypes, have a better prognosis, provide individualised treatment, increase survival, and reduce mortality. To evaluate the prevalence of sub-types of breast cancer and the association with the clinical and histopathological features of the tumour. An observational, retrospective, cross-sectional and analytical study conducted on 1380 patients with a diagnosis of breast cancer have been classified by immunohistochemistry into four subtypes: luminal A, triple negative, luminal B and HER2. An analysis was performed on the association with age, risk factors, and the clinical and histopathological features of the tumour. The mean age of the patients was 53.3 ± 11.4. The frequency was luminal A (65%), triple negative (14%), luminal B (12%), and HER2 (9%). The most frequent characteristics were the 50 to 59 age range, late menopause, the right side, upper external quadrant, stage II, metastatic lymph nodes, and mastectomy. The most frequent sub-type was luminal A, and together with the luminal B are those which have better prognosis compared with the triple negative and HER2.

    This study attempts to recount the history of the main hospitals of the port of Acapulco from colonial times until the end of the 20th century. The Augustine friars began hospital care at the end of the first part of the 16th century. Later, Bernardino Alvarez (1514?-1584), with the support of the Spanish crown, founded the first formal hospital in Acapulco called Hospital de Nuestra Señora de la Consolación (Our Lady of Consolation Hospital). During the 16th and 17th centuries, the sick were attended by friars, and by the end of the 19th century there were physicians and surgeons. From the end of the Independence War until the end of the 19th century, the port did not have any true hospital. The first degreed physicians and surgeons arrived and resided in Acapulco in 1920. In 1938, the Hospital Civil Morelos (Morelos Civil Hospital) began providing services. It was replaced by the Hospital General de Acapulco (General Hospital of Acapulco). At the fourth decade of the past century the Cruz Roja (Red Cross) was created. In 1957 the hospital services of the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS, Mexican Institute of Social Security), which was founded in 1963, was inaugurated with the Unidad Medico/Social (Medical and Social Unit) of the IMSS in Acapulco. This began the journey of modernity in Acapulco. In 1992, Hospital Regional Vicente Guerrero (Regional Hospital Vicente Guerrero) of the IMSS, initiated its services. In 1960, medical services for civil workers and their families were housed in the Hospital Civil Morelos (Morelos Civil Hospital). Shortly afterwards, the Instituto de Seguridad y Servicios Sociales para los Trabajadores del Estado (ISSSTE, Security and Social Services Institute for State Employees) had their own hospital. During the 20th century, Acapulco has added other hospital services to care for members of the navy and armed forces, as well as for those persons with financial resources for private care.

    In this article a thermal-environmental study is presented in order to evaluate the energy demand in the Morelos state. From collected climatologic data in seven automatic weather stations a comparative diagnosis by the application of two methodologies is realized, such as the one of the Degrees-day and the transitory thermal simulation of TRNSYS to determine the energy demand in traditional dwellings of social interest located in different regions of the State. In the methodology of the degrees-day the ambient temperature for two seasons of the year is used (rainy and dry) and the energy demand for the comfort in the Morelos State is evaluated. For the thermal simulation with the TRNSYS the climatic data obtained in monthly averages is used to determine the thermal loads of the house and the energy requirements in the different regions of the State. The results of the energy demand obtained by both methodologies for the municipality of Jiutepec and a statistic analysis of the existing relation between the degrees-day of cooling and the energy demand for cooling that the dynamic simulations deliver are presented.

    Full Text Available The first evaluation of the Medical Insurance for a New Generation program (SMNG was conducted in 2009. A mixed-method approach was used to obtain a comprehensive picture of SMNG members and the program itself. The evaluation comprised: 1 Program design; 2 Social and health conditions of its members; 3; Evaluation of SMNG's performance by measuring coverage, productivity and efficiency; 4 Families health expenditures. The lessons learned for the program are that SMNG is focused on a vulnerable segment of the population with pervasive unmet health needs; prevalence of malnutrition, anemia and other conditions remains high. Further efforts are necessary to deploy the program where it is most needed, particularly in rural areas; most of its members are urban dwellers. However, more needs to be done to educate members about the importance of preventive care and to build the capability of health providers to provide high quality care. Families are still experiencing hardship to provide medical care to their children, so additional efforts are needed to decrease out-of-pocket and catastrophic expenditures. The lessons learned for the evaluation allow concluding that this first evaluation set the groundwork for better-targeted subsequent interventions and evaluations aimed at showing the impact of SMNG to bridge existing gaps in equity, access, coverage, and health status of Mexican children.La primera evaluación del Seguro Médico para una Nueva Generación (SMNG se llevó a cabo en 2009.

    Recent increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide have resulted in rising aqueous CO2 concentrations that lower the pH of the oceans (Caldeira and Wickett 2003, 2005, Doney et al., 2009). It is estimated that over the next 100 years, the pH of the surface oceans will decrease by ~0.4 pH units (Orr et al., 2005), which is expected to hinder the calcifying capabilities of numerous marine organisms. Previous field work (Hall-Spencer et al., 2008) indicates that ocean acidification will negatively impact calcifying species; however, to date, very little is known about the long-term impacts of ocean acidification from the in-situ study of coral reef ecosystems. The Yucatán Peninsula of Quintana Roo, Mexico, represents an ecosystem where naturally low pH groundwater (7.14-8.07) has been discharging offshore at highly localized points (called ojos) for millennia. We present preliminary chemical and biological data on a selection of ojos from lagoon sites in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Our findings indicate a decrease in species richness and size with proximity to the low pH waters. We address the potential long-term implications of low pH, low aragonite saturation state on coral reef ecosystems.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se propone discutir la importancia de lo afectivo en la conformación de marcos de interpretación respecto a la forma de implicación en el mundo dentro del proyecto educativo de evangélicos que educan en el hogar. La educación en el hogar es la práctica en la que padres educan a sus hijos en sus casas, por su propia cuenta, sin asistencia escolar. El estudio se realizó en una ciudad de Morelos, México, a partir de la aplicación de entrevistas y grupos focales de padres educadores en el hogar de orientación evangélica. Este trabajo se desarrolla en tres momentos. Primero, se muestran los antecedentes de la educación en el hogar y su difusión en México. Segundo, se propone una caracterización de los educadores en el hogar con la descripción de sus principales rasgos. Finalmente, se discute la relevancia que ha tenido la dimensión religiosa en el crecimiento de la educación en el hogar y el significado de lo religioso en la reproducción de interpretaciones particulares sobre la familia y el espacio público.

Múltiples han sido los trabajos de investigación realizados con respecto a las causas que lo producen y los efectos que provoca. El bajo peso al nacer es un indicador que permite predecir la probabilidad de sobrevivencia de un niño. De hecho, existe una relación exponencial entre el déficit de peso, la edad gestacional y la mortalidad perinatal. La regresión logística múltiple es uno de los instrumentos estadísticos más expresivos y versátiles de que se dispone para el análisis de datos tanto en clínica y en epidemiología como en salud pública. OBJETIVO Evaluar de forma multivariada la importancia de 17 variables independientes en el bajo peso al nacer (variable dependiente, de niños nacidos en el municipio maya de José María Morelos, Quintana Roo, México.

    Full Text Available La incorporación de las plantas medicinales en la Atención Primaria de Salud (APS, constituye un gran desafío. Según la OMS, el uso de las plantas medicinales constituye una terapia más natural, más inocua, efectiva, de un costo racional y asequible a las poblaciones. Para establecer el uso seguro y eficaz es necesaria la correcta identificación taxonómica de las especies y el origen de las mismas. El objetivo del estudio fue identificar taxonómicamente las plantas medicinales utilizadas por pacientes que consultaron en los servicios de Unidad de Salud Familiar (USF de la IV Región Sanitaria del Guairá, Paraguay, de agosto a diciembre de 2.011, además del hábitat de procedencia de las mismas. Los pacientes fueron encuestados sobre las plantas medicinales utilizadas y el modo de empleo de las mismas. Las encuestas fueron acompañadas por muestras de las plantas medicinales utilizadas que posteriormente fueron identificadas taxonómicamente. Se identificaron 56 especies utilizadas para diversos fines medicinales, de las cuales las más mencionadas fueron menta’i (Mentha x piperita, ñangapiry (Eugenia uniflora, salviarã (Lippia alba, koku (Allophylus edulis, typycha curaty (Scoparia dulcis y ka’are (Chenopodium ambrosioides.

    ésbicas gays, bissexuais e transgêneros (LGBT. Este trabalho deixa claro que a escola e as culturas jovens contemporâneas são caracterizadas por normas rígidas de gênero e sexualidade (incluindo a homofobia e expectativas a respeito da masculinidade, feminilidade e heterossexualidade; sendo que o bem estar de estudantes que não se conformam ou desafiam estas normas é muitas vezes prejudicado. Em anos recentes o foco de análise deslocou-se da situação de cada aluno para o reconhecimento de que o contexto e clima escolares precisam ser entendidos melhor para prevenir o bullying motivado por algum viés e promover a segurança na escola e o bem estar dos estudantes. Durante a última década diversos estudos identificaram políticas, programas e práticas educacionais específicas que promovem climas escolares seguros. Neste artigo reviso o que se sabe sobre políticas e programas que promovem a segurança para estudantes LGBT bem como para estudantes heterossexuais nas escolas. Um corpo crescente de trabalhos indica que as seguintes estratégias estão associadas com climas escolares mais seguros para estudantes LGBT: regulamento detalhado de não-discriminação e anti-bullying; intervenção dos professores quando o assédio ocorre; disponibilidade de informação e apoio sobre questões LGBT para os estudantes; presença de grupos de apoio ou clubes com base na escola (frequentemente denominados "alianças gay-hétero"; e inclusão curricular de pessoas e questões LGBT. No contexto desta pesquisa, discuto vários temas chave a serem considerados por educadores, legisladores e acadêmicos.

Medicare and Medicaid benefits are not portable to other countries and Medigap (private insurance that supplements Medicare is very limited. This causes economic and medical hardships and serves as a barrier to retirement to Mexico. Increasing numbers of U.S. retirees will be interested in moving to Mexico in the future because of the climate, the culture, and the lower cost of living. The numbers are increasing as a result of several factors such as aging "baby boomers" and the rapidly growing Mexican-origin population in the U.S.A. who are citizens or permanent residents but would like to return to their communities of origin after working in the U.S.A.

    The goal of this work was diet reconstruction of 25 pre hispanic residents of Cuauhnahuac, tributary town of the mexicas, during the Late Pos classic period (1350-1521 a.C.). The analysis included human skull samples proceeding from human femur, tibia and fibula. The applied technique was X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) to know the mineral concentrations, which are closely related with the quality and quantity of the consumed food. The main indicative elements are strontium (Sr), that denotes the consumption of vegetables, zinc (Zn), that shows the consumption of animal proteins, and magnesium (Mg), associated with Meso american food resources. The results indicate the existence of differences in the diet among the same population's individuals, probably because social stratification determined the power resources acquisition.

    On 19 September 2017, thirty two years after the 1985 Michoacan interplate earthquake (Mw8.0), the city was once again devastated but this time by a Mw7.1 intraslab earthquake. The 2017 earthquake was located near the border of the states of Morelos and Puebla (18.410N, -98.710E; H=57 km), to SSE of Mexico City, at a hypocentral distance of about 127 km. It caused great panic in Mexico City, collapse of 44 buildings, and severely damaged many others. More than 200 persons were killed in the city. It was the second most destructive earthquake in the history of Mexico City, next only to the 1985 earthquake. A strong-motion station at CU located on basalt lava flows on main campus UNAM has been in continuous operation since 1964. PGA of 59 gal at CU during the 2017 earthquake is the largest ever, two times greater than that recorded during the 1985 earthquake (29 gal). The 2017 earthquake raised questions that are critical in fathoming the seismic vulnerability of the city and in its reconstruction. Was such an intraslab earthquake (Mw 7 at a hypocentral distance of 127 km) unexpected? Were the recorded ground motions in the city unusually high for such an earthquake? Why did the damage pattern during the earthquake differ from that observed during the 1985 earthquake? The earthquake was the closest M>5 intraslab earthquake to Mexico City ever recorded. However, Mw 5.9 events have occurred in recent years in the vicinity of the 2017 earthquake (R 145 km). Three Mw≥6.9 earthquakes have occurred since 1964 in the distance range 184-225 km. Thus, Mw and R of the earthquake was not surprising. However, a comparison of Fourier acceleration spectra at CU of 10 intraslab earthquakes with largest PGA, reduced to a common distance of R=127 km, shows that the amplitudes of the 2017 events were abnormally high in 1-2s range. Spectra of intraslab events at CU are enriched at higher frequencies relative to interplate ones because of closer distance, greater depth and higher

METHOD: Two models of logistic regression, taking into account the categories of the medical examiners, were built with the aim of characterizing the relative weight of several variables affecting the medical conclusion. RESULTS: The factors more strongly related to an award of benefit were claimants assessed by a physician without a specialization in psychiatry; with a diagnosis of psychosis; up to 29 years of age; with other non-psychiatric (musculoskeletal and cardiovascular co-morbidities; registered with the national insurance system as employed; and male. DISCUSSION: In both models, examiners with a specialization in psychiatry were associated with a lower likelihood of award of benefit. This suggests that examinations undertaken by doctors having a specialty related to the diagnosis supporting the sickness benefit claim are stricter than those undertaken by non-specialists. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that benefit award odds were associated with the specialty of the examiner, medical diagnosis, age, gender and claimant category.OBJETIVO: Avaliar a chance de deferimento em relação a fatores institucionais, clínicos, sociodemográficos e previdenciários em exames periciais iniciais de requerentes de auxílio-doença com registro de algum transtorno mental como diagnóstico principal em Juiz de Fora-MG.

    Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) have gradually become important and regular components of the policy-making process in Mexico since, and even before, the World Health Organization (WHO) Commission on Social Determinants of Health (CSDH) called for interventions and policies aimed at tackling the social determinants of health (SDH). This paper presents two case studies to show how public policies addressing the SDH have been monitored and evaluated in Mexico using reliable, valid, and complete information, which is not regularly available. Prospera, for example, evaluated programs seeking to improve the living conditions of families in extreme poverty in terms of direct effects on health, nutrition, education and income. Monitoring of Prospera's implementation has also helped policy-makers identify windows of opportunity to improve the design and operation of the program. Seguro Popular has monitored the reduction of health inequalities and inequities evaluated the positive effects of providing financial protection to its target population. Useful and sound evidence of the impact of programs such as Progresa and Seguro Popular plus legal mandates, and a regulatory evaluation agency, the National Council for Social Development Policy Evaluation, have been fundamental to institutionalizing M&E in Mexico. The Mexican experience may provide useful lessons for other countries facing the challenge of institutionalizing the M&E of public policy processes to assess the effects of SDH as recommended by the WHO CSDH.

    La unidad de pago por capitación –UPC– corresponde a la prima del seguro en el sistema de seguridad social en salud de Colombia. Con este monto, complementado en ciertos casos con las cuotas moderadoras y los copagos de los afiliados, se busca garantizar el acceso a los servicios del plan obligatorio de salud –POS–, por lo que su definición por el organismo regulador debería ajustarse, en teoría, a los costos del plan.

  10. Heterogeneous Impact of the “Seguro Popular” Program on the Utilization of Obstetrical Services in Mexico, 2001–2006: A Multinomial Probit Model with a Discrete Endogenous Variable

    Objective We evaluated the impact of Seguro Popular (SP), a program introduced in 2001 in Mexico primarily to finance health care for the poor. We focused on the effect of household enrollment in SP on pregnant women’s access to obstetrical services, an important outcome measure of both maternal and infant health. Data We relied upon data from the cross-sectional 2006 National Health and Nutrition Survey (ENSANUT) in Mexico. We analyzed the responses of 3,890 women who delivered babies during 2001–2006 and whose households lacked employer-based health care coverage. Methods We formulated a multinomial probit model that distinguished between three mutually exclusive sites for delivering a baby: a health unit specifically accredited by SP; a non-SP-accredited clinic run by the Department of Health (Secretaría de Salud, or SSA); and private obstetrical care. Our model accounted for the endogeneity of the household’s binary decision to enroll in the SP program. Results Women in households that participated in the SP program had a much stronger preference for having a baby in a SP-sponsored unit rather than paying out of pocket for a private delivery. At the same time, participation in SP was associated with a stronger preference for delivering in the private sector rather than at a state-run SSA clinic. On balance, the Seguro Popular program reduced pregnant women’s attendance at an SSA clinic much more than it reduced the probability of delivering a baby in the private sector. The quantitative impact of the SP program varied with the woman’s education and health, as well as the assets and location (rural versus urban) of the household. Conclusions The SP program had a robust, significantly positive impact on access to obstetrical services. Our finding that women enrolled in SP switched from non-SP state-run facilities, rather than from out-of-pocket private services, is important for public policy and requires further exploration.

    The goal of this work was diet reconstruction of 25 pre hispanic residents of Cuauhnahuac, tributary town of the mexicas, during the Late Pos classic period (1350-1521 a.C.). The analysis included human skull samples proceeding from human femur, tibia and fibula. The applied technique was X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) to know the mineral concentrations, which are closely related with the quality and quantity of the consumed food. The main indicative elements are strontium (Sr), that denotes the consumption of vegetables, zinc (Zn), that shows the consumption of animal proteins, and magnesium (Mg), associated with Meso american food resources. The results indicate the existence of differences in the diet among the same population's individuals, probably because social stratification determined the power resources acquisition.

As mudanças na Previdência Social do Brasil traduzem o enfraquecimento do projeto nacional de Seguridade Social, a hegemonia do projeto de Seguro Social e a redução da reforma previdenciária a uma questão de natureza gerencial e fiscal. As práticas atuais de "reabilitação" estão distanciadas da finalidade institucional de proteção social dos trabalhadores e objetivam a regulação econômica do sistema pela contenção de despesas com benefícios. Os segurados acidentados e adoecidos do trabalho estão desassistidos de reabilitação profissional, o que aumenta a sua desvantagem social por ocasião do retorno ao trabalho.

MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Se comparan tamaños promedios de familias según los Padrones 2004 a 2006 del SPS y otras fuentes. Se ajustan modelos logísticos para identificar las variables explicativas de la afiliación como familia unipersonal. RESULTADOS: Las familias del SPS en promedio tienen un miembro menos respecto de otras fuentes. Los modelos logísticos indican que cuanto más reciente es el año de afiliación tanto mayor es la probabilidad de afiliarse como familia unipersonal CONCLUSIONES: El menor número de miembros por familia afiliada implica un sobrefinanciamiento al SPS.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Average sizes of families in the SPS are compared using 2004-2006 enrollment records and other sources. Logistic models are used to identify explanatory variables for affiliation as a single-person family. RESULTS: SPS families on average are composed of one member less in comparison with other sources. The logistic models indicate that the more recent the affiliation year the more probable is affiliation as a single-person family. CONCLUSIONS: The smaller number of family members implies an over-financing by the SPS. It is recommended to change the unit of financing to the individual to help the operational and financial sustainability of the SPS over the mid- to long-term.

    Mexico is reaching universal health coverage in 2012. A national health insurance programme called Seguro Popular, introduced in 2003, is providing access to a package of comprehensive health services with financial protection for more than 50 million Mexicans previously excluded from insurance. Universal coverage in Mexico is synonymous with social protection of health. This report analyses the road to universal coverage along three dimensions of protection: against health risks, for patients through quality assurance of health care, and against the financial consequences of disease and injury. We present a conceptual discussion of the transition from labour-based social security to social protection of health, which implies access to effective health care as a universal right based on citizenship, the ethical basis of the Mexican reform. We discuss the conditions that prompted the reform, as well as its design and inception, and we describe the 9-year, evidence-driven implementation process, including updates and improvements to the original programme. The core of the report concentrates on the effects and impacts of the reform, based on analysis of all published and publically available scientific literature and new data. Evidence indicates that Seguro Popular is improving access to health services and reducing the prevalence of catastrophic and impoverishing health expenditures, especially for the poor. Recent studies also show improvement in effective coverage. This research then addresses persistent challenges, including the need to translate financial resources into more effective, equitable and responsive health services. A next generation of reforms will be required and these include systemic measures to complete the reorganisation of the health system by functions. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications of the Mexican quest to achieve universal health coverage and its relevance for other low-income and middle-income countries. Copyright

    The Brazilian Petroleum Agency has been working on the adoption of an efficient financial guarantee system in order to ensure the fulfillment of contractual obligations in upstream-related activities. This process is aimed at: creating incentives for responsible behavior in the industry; attending current demands from society for efficiency and transparency; attending to industries demands for the maintenance of investment flows within the sector; safeguarding the government against financial liabilities caused by irresponsible or insolvent concessionaires; and keeping the sector attractive and competitive for small and medium companies. Within the bidding process for the concession of inactive areas with marginal accumulations, ANP requires two kinds of guarantees: a bidding guarantee, and a PTI guarantee (for obligations under the Initial Work Program-PTI). In both cases, the ANP allows two kinds of financial instruments: 'Seguros-Garantia' and 'Letters of Credit'. According to bidding rules, guarantees must be presented before the bidding process. This instrument ensures that the winner will sign the concession contract. The PTI guarantee ensures performance in a timely fashion. This paper describes and analyzes the instrument 'Seguro-Garantia', its evolution, existing categories, and applicability. (author)

Neste sentido, a autora procura demonstrar que as políticas sociais são intervenções estatais condicionadas pela demanda existente e pelo contexto histórico no qual emergem. Desta forma, podem assumir diferentes modalidades, como a assistência social, o seguro social e o Estado do Bem-Estar Social. O predomínio de uma ou outra destas modalidades em cada sociedade, configurou distintos padrões de intervenção estatal no trato das questões sociais nos países mais desenvolvidos, que se diferenciam em função da maior ou menor justiça e eqüidade dos sistemas prestadores de serviços sociais. Na América Latina, o desenvolvimento das políticas sociais enfrentou problemáticas específicas que são analisadas pela autora.The article tends to approach the social political field from the citizenship development. As it is understood the roll of the rights and duties is established among the citizens whose condition is confered. In this way, the author tries to show that the social politics are state's interventions conditioned by the existent necessity and from the historical context in which they arise. Thus, they can assume different forms such as the social assistance, social security and the state social welfare. The predominancy of either one of these forms in each society has shaped different models of state's intervention refering to the social questions, in more developed countries which differ according to the major or minor justice and impartiality of the social services advantageous systems. In Latin America, the development of social policies faced specific problems that are analysed by the author.

The data used are drawn from the Mexican National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI and the National Population Council (CONAPO. We also fit a Brass-type relational model to compare gaps between general population mortality and the mortality estimates for the insured population used by the National Insurance and Finance Commission in Mexico. As the life tables for insured lives are unisex, i.e. they do not differentiate between men and women, we assume various sex ratios in the mortality tables for insured lives. We compare our results with those obtained for Switzerland and observe very similar outcomes. We emphasize the limitations of the mortality tables used by insurance companies in Mexico. We also discuss the bias incurred when using unisex mortality tables if the proportion of male and female policyholders in an insurance company is not balanced. || Interesados en conocer las diferencias entre la mortalidad general y la de un subgrupo de la población, como son los asegurados en una compañía de seguros, hemos ajustado un modelo relacional Brass-Type.

    Full Text Available Intensos movimentos no sentido de reconhecer o direito da mulher de decidir sobre a interrupção da gravidez provocaram ampla legalização do aborto entre países do norte, enquanto nos demais, devido à legislação restritiva, persistem as práticas inseguras. Visando a contribuir para o debate corrente no Brasil, apresenta-se uma sistematização dos aspectos tratados na literatura especializada quanto às implicações para a saúde pública impostas pela restrição de acesso ao aborto seguro. Foram pesquisadas bases bibliográficas Pubmed e Lilacs, enfatizando-se aspectos psicossociais associados à prática do aborto inseguro. Utilizando-se a análise de conteúdo, identificaram-se quatro eixos temáticos: magnitude do aborto e seu impacto, observando-se que graves consequências que levam à internação e morte devido ao aborto são características dos países com restrição legal; aspectos psicológicos e as práticas contraceptivas entre as mulheres que já sofreram aborto, observando-se que as principais diferenças entre mulheres que abortam e as demais revelam uma maior dificuldade de adaptação aos métodos disponíveis; estratégias para redução de danos resultantes do aborto inseguro, observando-se que algumas medidas podem ser eficazes mesmo em vigência de restrição legal; e a implicação da bioética para a legalização do aborto, observando-se que a legalização depende, principalmente, da capacidade de as mulheres defenderem seus interesses na agenda política. Concluiu-se que a proibição do aborto, na prática, afeta as mulheres pobres de países pobres, perpetuando uma situação de negligência e iniquidade.Intensive movements concerned with the recognition of women´s right to decide about interrupting pregnancy led to a wide spread abortion legalization among the Northern countries, while unsafe practices persist in the others, due to restrictive legislation.

La modalidad de seguro seleccionada parael estudio ha sido el de rentas, seguro con cobertura de supervivencia, calculándose la prima única de riesgo para las cuatro leyes de supervivencia más aceptadas, como son la primera y segunda de Dormoy, la ley de Gomperzt y la ley de Makeham. La selección de estas leyes ha sido por ser las que mejor se ajustan al modelo mediante el empleo de las tablas de mortalidad elaboradas por Pérez (2000. En los seguros de vida con cobertura de supervivencia, una experiencia de siniestralidad negativa para la compañía significa que los asegurados son más longevos de lo esperado. Así, cuando se calculan las primas, es una práctica común añadir un margen de seguridad implícito, en forma de porcentaje, a las probabilidades de fallecimiento qx, o bien emplear una tabla de mortalidad cuyas probabilidades de fallecimiento sean inferiores a las del grupo humano considerado. Esto se puede interpretar como un decremento del tanto instantáneo con un múltiplo. En este artículo se demuestra que el empleo de la función de distorsión, hasta ahora empleada en el ramo de no vida y siendo la novedad su aplicación al ramo de vida asegurador, produce este mismo efecto, pero mediante el cálculo de una prima recargada de manera implícita. || The goal of this study is to get a premium calculation principle, for the life insurance business, based on a coherent risk measure (Wang, 1995 in the form of power, called Proportional Hazards (PH

    avaliados: dose diária de levodopa, discinesia induzida pela levodopa, estadiamento da doença, atividades de vida diária e escores motores da UPDRS. RNM e TC estereotáxicas e os efeitos da estimulação com macroeletrodo foram utilizados na determinação das coordenadas do NST. Uma única lesão por radiofrequência foi realizada (60 - 75ºC / 60". Lesão concomitante de Vim/VOp ipsilateral foi realizada em 8 pacientes. Utilizando-se uma nova técnica, foi possível estabelecer o território do NST lesado cirurgicamente. Os testes estatísticos de Wilcoxon e Mann-Whitney foram aplicados para avaliar os resultados cirúrgicos. Todos os parâmetros avaliados apresentaram melhora sustentada após seguimento médio de 13.5 meses. Recidiva ocorreu em 2 casos. Abolição do tremor e redução da rigidez e bradicinesia contralaterais devem ser considerados como "marcadores" do NST à estimulação. A presença de lesão hiperintensa na RNM pós-operatória precoce parece ser indicadora de mau prognóstico. Os melhores resultados foram obtidos com a lesão do território lateral do NST. Não houve diferença estatisticamente significante entre os subgrupos com e sem lesão concomitante de Vim /VOp. Discinesia ocorreu em 2 casos, prontamente revertida pela lesão concomitante de Vim/VOp. Outras complicações foram transitórias e/ou raras. Concluindo-se, a lesão unilateral do NST é procedimento seguro e eficaz para o tratamento da DP, tratando-se, de uma cirurgia subutilizada para aqueles que não podem arcar com o elevado custo da estimulação cerebral profunda.

    ção de valores, de prazos e procedimentos para pagamento.OBJETIVO: Analizar los mecanismos de microregulación aplicados por las operadoras de seguro de salud en las prácticas de gestión de la clínica y de calificación asistencial en hospitales prestadores de servicios. MÉTODOS: Estudio transversal realizado en pesquisa de amplitud nacional, cuyo universo fue constituido por los hospitales prestadores de servicios a las operadoras de seguro de salud en 2006. Fue construida una muestra de 83 unidades, estratificada según macroregión del Brasil y tipo de hospital. Los datos fueron obtenidos por medio de aplicación de cuestionario en entrevista a los directores de los hospitales.. RESULTADOS: La microregulación que las operadoras de seguro de salud ejercen sobre los hospitales en términos de la calificación de la asistencia fue muy baja o casi nula. La actuación de las operadoras fue mayoritariamente destinada al intenso control de la cantidad de servicios utilizados por los pacientes. Los hospitales que prestaban servicios a operadoras de seguro de salud no constituían micro-sistemas de salud paralelos o suplementarios al Sistema Único de Salud (SUS. Se observó que los prestadores hospitalarios privados eran mayoritariamente vinculados al SUS. Mientras tanto, no pertenecía a alguna red de prestadores privados, aún siendo objeto de fuerte regulación de la utilización de sus servicios, ejercida por las operadoras de seguros de salud. La intervención de las operadoras de seguros de salud con respecto a gestoras de sistemas de cuidado fue incipiente o casi ausente. Aproximadamente la mitad de los hospitales declaró adoptar directrices clínicas, mientras sólo 25,4% afirmaron ejercer la gestión de la patología y 30,5% mencionaron la gestión de los casos. CONCLUSIONES: Las relaciones contractuales entre hospitales y operadoras de seguros de salud se constituyen en contratos meramente comerciales con poca o ninguna incorporación de aspectos relativos a

    To study lines of action implemented in Mexico by the health sector from 2007 to 2012 in order to combat health inequities by targeting social determinants. To contribute to better understanding and knowledge of how health system inequalities in the Region of the Americas can be reduced. To formulate recommendations for designing a future public policy agenda to address the social determinants associated with health inequities in Mexico. The policies and programs established in the National Health Program (PRONASA) 2007 - 2012 were reviewed, and those that met four criteria were selected: i) they affected the social determinants of health (SDH); ii) they developed specific lines of action aimed at reducing health inequities; iii) they set concrete goals; and iv) they had been evaluated to determine whether those goals had been met. Three programs were selected: Seguro Popular, Programa de Desarrollo Humano Oportunidades (PDHO), and Caravanas de la Salud. Once each program's specific lines of action targeting SDH had been identified, the monitoring and evaluation indicators established in PRONASA 2007 - 2012, along with other available evaluations and empirical evidence, were used to measure the extent to which the goals were met. The findings showed that Seguro Popular had had a positive impact in terms of the financial protection of lower-income households. Moreover, the reduction in the gap between workers covered by the social security system and those who were not was more evident. By reducing poverty among its beneficiaries, the PDHO also managed to reduce health inequities. The indicators for Caravanas de la Salud, on the other hand, did not show statistically significant differences between the control localities and the localities covered by the program, except in the case of Pap tests. These findings have important public policy implications for designing an agenda that promotes continued targeting of SDH and heightening its impact in terms of reducing

    Full Text Available High strength quenched and tempered (Q&T steels offer obvious economic benefits originating from their advantageous strength to price and weight ratios. These steels are usually welded using ferritic consumables and for this combination the risk of hydrogen assisted cold cracking (HACC is high. The use of austenitic stainless steel (ASS consumables has great potential to significantly improve this issue. Yet, there are no guidelines for determination of safe level of preheat for welding ferritic steels with ASS consumables. For this reason manufacturers adopt this parameter from procedures developed for conventional ferritic consumables thus significantly limiting the benefits ASS consumables are capable to deliver. Productivity could be further enhanced by identifying the upper interpass temperature threshold, thus reducing the stand-off times. Aim of this work is to develop safe highly optimised procedures for welding of high strength Q&T steel with ASS consumable.Aços temperados e revenidos de alta resistência (Q&T oferecem vantagens econômicas óbvias originadas de sua benéfica razão resistência e custo ou peso. Estes aços são normalmente soldados com consumíveis ferríticos e, por esta causa, apresentam alto risco de trinca de hidrogênio. O uso de consumíveis de aços inoxidáveis austeníticos representa um grande potencial para melhorar este aspecto. Entretanto, não há recomendações técnicas para determinar um nível seguro de temperatura de pré-aquecimento para soldagens de aços ferríticos com consumíveis austeníticos. Por isto, fabricantes adotam para este parâmetro os tirados de procedimentos desenvolvidos para consumíveis ferríticos convencionais, consequentemente reduzindo os benefícios que os consumíveis austeníticos poderiam fornecer. Produtividade poderia ser intensificada pela identificação da temperatura de interpasse, reduzindo os tempos mortos. O objetivo do presente trabalho foi o de desenvolver

    Can social sustainability be built? In this paper the potentialities and challenges of the concept of social sustainability are explored based on a collaboration project between the Danish Building Research Institute, a Danish social housing association and the Green Building Council Denmark......, aiming to better integrate standards of social sustainability in the application of certification systems like DGNB. The paper relates theory on social sustainability to the ways it is used in practice, and discusses whether and how social sustainability can be measured and certified in renewal...... and construction of housing and neighbourhoods. It is put forward that a certification has to take into account the housing complex’ or neighbourhood’s relation to the surrounding city, its development over time, its flexibility towards future needs and its social organisation and operation. Further, the interplay...

    Full Text Available Social entrepreneurship has experienced a renaissance in the world over the last decade. The business sector, pressed by the economic crisis and social responsibility imperatives, started to turn towards some of the more sustainable organisational models, which combine profit and responsible orientation. Social entrepreneurship, as a whole, is characterised by the support and assistance rendered to the community and the vulnerable social groups. Social entrepreneurs are a proof that financial success does not exclude responsible behaviour towards the social community and the environment, and that the socially beneficial target may also serve as a successful business driver. At the same time, social enterprises may be a very useful source of entrepreneurial ideas in the economies which are passing through transition, with the high unemployment rates. Filling in the gaps in offering certain social services, with simultaneous profit making and offering option for engagement of entire families, are only some of the features characteristic for the social enterprises, which could become one of the leading models of business conducted in the Serbian economy.

    Full Text Available The field of social business is growing rapidly and attracting increased attention from many sectors. The term itself shows up frequently in the media, is referenced by public officials, have become common on universities. The reasons behind the popularity of social entrepreneurship are many. On the most basic level, there’s something inherently interesting and appealing about entrepreneurs and the stories of why and how they do what they do. The interest in social entrepreneurship transcends the phenomenon of popularity and fascination with people. Social entrepreneurship signals the imperative to drive social change, and it is that potential payoff, with its lasting, transformational benefit to society, that sets the field and its practitioners apart. Although the potential benefits offered by social entrepreneurship are clear to many of those promoting and funding these activities, the actual definition of what social entrepreneurs do to produce this order of magnitude return is less clear. In fact, we would argue that the definition of social entrepreneurship today is anything but clear. As a result, social entrepreneurship has become so inclusive that it now has an immense tent into which all manner of socially beneficial activities fit. In some respects this inclusiveness could be a good thing. If we can achieve a rigorous definition, then those who support social entrepreneurship can focus their resources on building and strengthening a concrete and identifiable field. Absent that discipline, proponents of social entrepreneurship run the risk of giving the skeptics an ever-expanding target to shoot at, and the cynics even more reason to discount social innovation and those who drive it.

    The focus of this article is social divisions among preschool children in daycare centers. Based on ethnographic fieldwork in three daycare centers in Denmark, the analysis concerns young children’s social preferences. The ethnographic material shows that despite an explicit political ambition...... of daycares as means for social and cultural integration, lines of division do exist amongst the children. Such divisions are established in the daily interactions of the daycare, but they also reflect those of the broader society.

    Although cognitive science has recently asked how human sociality is constituted, there is no clear and consistent account of the emergence of human style social agency. Previously, we have critiqued views based on 'participatory sense-making' by arguing that agency requires a distinctive kind...... of phenomenology that enables a diachronic social experience. In advancing the positive argument, we link developmental psychology to phenomenological insights by focusing on child-caregiver dynamics around the middle of the second year.

Once the child has successfully dealt with the environment’s normative perturbations she is able to develop the skills of a fully-fledged human social agent....

    With a lifetime prevalence of 13% social phobia (social anxiety disorder) is a common and serious condition that should not be played down because of the burden associated with the disorder, an increased suicide rate and the frequent comorbidity with substance abuse disorders. Social phobia is characterized by the excessive and unrealistic fear of being scrutinized or criticized by others. The disorder often begins in adolescence.Symptoms of social phobia can be effectively treated with evidence-based treatment, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and psychopharmacological medications. In the present paper, treatment recommendations are given, which are based on a systematic review of all available randomized trials for the treatment of social phobia. Among psychological therapies, variants of CBT have been proven to be effective in controlled studies. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and the selective serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) venlafaxine are among the drugs of first choice.

    In a rather complicated process starting at the middle of the 19th century and ending hundred years later social medicine was established as a science. Different theories on the social origin of the diseases and even different perspectives on the role of medicine in society did influence and shape the new discipline. The tradition from Rudolf Virchow and Alfred Grotjahn emphasizing the importance of the social causes of the diseases and the tradition from social hygiene with its stress on the hereditarian background of many diseases was mixed together in the early history of social medicine. Many of those trying to establish the new discipline thought that it could be used in order to prevent the spreading of diseases in society and also hinder the development of social maladjustments of different kinds, as for instance criminality and vagrancy. The political framework of social medicine was very much related to what in the Swedish debate later on was to be called social engineering. Both within the tradition of social liberalism and the social democratic party the ideals of a rational society governed by experts was very influential in the period between the two world wars. Some of the advocates for social medicine did even try to formulate a political programme with the new science as a base. The most influential of those was the forensic pspychiatrist Olof Kinberg (1873-1960). In a series of books and articles during the first half of the 19th century Kinberg developed a theory of a society governed by doctors educated within this new branch of science. He thought that almost every kind of social problem could be handled by these experts. Social maladjustment, criminality and even car accidents could be reduced to a minimum if only the new knowledge of the biological and medical causes of human behavior was allowed to influence the social and political organization of the society. Especially during the 1930s some politicians and also social scientists thought

    Full Text Available A municipalização do trânsito no Brasil, a partir do final da década de 1990, transformou o município em um importante agente social no cenário contemporâneo da educação no trânsito. A expansão das receitas dos órgãos executivos de trânsito coloca em pauta novos desafios de atuação do município, exigindo maior profissionalismo na aplicação dos recursos arrecadados, num contexto social que espera que os municípios produzam e transpareçam resultados efetivos de suas ações. Diante desta realidade, a possibilidade de se identificarem os fatores capazes de traduzir a complexa problemática de aplicação dos recursos arrecadados dos órgãos executivos de trânsito não é uma tarefa simples. A maioria das iniciativas para isso acaba falhando, principalmente pela multiplicidade de aspectos a serem considerados na abordagem do problema. Muitas vezes são omitidos ou desprezados os aspectos que deveriam ser contemplados, resultando em simplificações que acabam por produzir estruturas de avaliação incapazes de representar a realidade do processo. O presente estudo propõe-se a identificar os fatores relevantes na tomada de decisão para aplicação dos recursos arrecadados com multas de trânsito, a partir das visões dos diversos especialistas de trânsito e dos gestores de órgãos executivos de trânsito das capitais brasileiras. A identificação desses fatores foi possível a partir da utilização da Técnica Delphi, a qual foi realizada através de sete rodadas de entrevistas com 12 especialistas e aplicação de um questionário junto aos gestores de 10 das maiores capitais do pais. O produto final da pesquisa foi a construção da estrutura hierárquica desses fatores e suas respectivas dimensões.

Cross-sectional study using data obtained from the Unified System of Benefits of the Brazilian Institute of Social Security (INSS, Instituto Nacional de Seguro Social) and the Brazilian Social Registry Database. Data regarding gender, age, diagnosis and type of economic activity, as well as type, duration and cost of benefits, were compiled. Respiratory diseases accounted for 1.3% of the total number of temporary social security benefits granted by INSS, with a prevalence rate of 9.92 (per 10,000 employment contracts). Females and individuals older than 50 years of age were the most affected. Non-work-related benefits were more common than were work-related benefits. The most prevalent diseases were pneumonia, asthma and COPD, followed by laryngeal and vocal cord diseases. The most prevalent types of economic activity were auxiliary transportation equipment manufacturing, tobacco product manufacturing and computer-related activities. The mean duration of benefits was 209.68 days, with a mean cost of R$ 4,495.30 per occurrence. Respiratory diseases caused by exogenous agents demanded longer sick leave (mean, 296.72 days) and greater cost (mean, R$ 7,105.74). The most prevalent diseases were airway diseases and pneumonia. Workers from auxiliary transportation equipment manufacturing, tobacco product manufacturing and computer-related activities were the most affected. Diseases caused by exogenous agents demanded longer sick leaves and resulted in greater costs.

La cobertura universal en México es sinónimo de protección social en salud. Este informe analiza el camino hacia la cobertura universal en sus tres dimensiones de protección: a contra riesgos para la salud, b de los pacientes a través de la garantía de calidad de la atención a la salud y c contra las consecuencias financieras de la enfermedad y las lesiones.

As questões de saúde da mulher são classificadas sob uma única categoria abrangente e excluem algumas das preocupações específicas de mulheres lésbicas, que, em geral, não têm o mesmo comportamento em relação à saúde que as mulheres heterossexuais. Esta tendência se deve a uma série de razões, entre as quais: falta de conhecimento sobre saúde e risco sexuais lésbicos, medo de estigmatização pelos prestadores de serviço e o processo de "se assumir" (coming out para esses profissionais, que além de desconhecido, é, algumas vezes, hostil. Além disso, a pouca pesquisa sobre lésbicas e saúde lésbica na África do Sul torna difícil para as mulheres que assim se autoclassificam saberem que questões de saúde sexual as afetam especificamente, bem como onde e de que forma lidar com certos problemas. Existe uma percepção equivocada e generalizada de que questões de sexo seguro não afetam mulheres lésbicas tanto quanto mulheres heterossexuais. O artigo apresenta as visões de um grupo de mulheres de 18 a 35 anos que se autoidentificam como lésbicas na África de Sul.

Lesbian women in general do not have the same health-seeking behaviours as heterosexual women. This is due to a number of reasons including: lack of knowledge about lesbian sexual health and sexual risk, fear of stigmatization by service providers, and the "coming out" process to

    This chapter focuses on what social pain is and how it should be managed. In order to understand social pain in a cancer patient, it is necessary to recognize the change in the patient's daily life after the diagnosis of cancer. Because the degree of suffering and the relationships with family members and the people he or she worked with differ from patient to patient, it is important to note that the context of social pain is different in each patient. Five points shown below are essential in managing social pain. 1. Economical suffering may be alleviated by utilization of the social security system while taking into account each patient's standard of living. 2. Burdens on family members should be lessened, such as by not having them stay at the patient's bedside every day and letting them go home occasionally. 3. The normal patterns of communication, support, and conflict in the family should be identified, and the extent to which they have been disrupted by the illness should be assessed. 4. It is important to understand the ethnic, cultural, and religious background of the patient and the potential impact of their influence on the individual and the illness. 5. Practical or emotional unfinished business that the patient has needs to be identified, and efforts should be made to support fulfillment.

    Full Text Available Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Social Phobia is a condition characterized by a marked and persistent fear of social or performance situations in which embarrassment may occur. Exposure to the social or performance situation almost invariably provokes an immediate anxiety response. Although adolescents and adults with this disorder recognize that their fear is excessive or unreasonable, this may not be the case in children. Most often, the social or performance situation is avoided, although it is sometimes endured with dread. In individuals younger than 18, symptoms must have persisted for at least 6 months before is disorder is diagnosed. This diagnosis should not be given if the fear is reasonable given the context of the stimuli (e.g., fear of being called on in class when unprepared. The disturbance must cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. This disorder is not due to a medical condition, medication, or abused substance. It is not better accounted for by another mental disorder.

    Summary of recent advances Protozoan parasites cause tremendous human suffering worldwide, but strategies for therapeutic intervention are limited. Recent studies illustrate that the paradigm of microbes as social organisms can be brought to bear on questions about parasite biology, transmission and pathogenesis. This review discusses recent work demonstrating adaptation of social behaviors by parasitic protozoa that cause African sleeping sickness and malaria. The recognition of social behavior and cell-cell communication as a ubiquitous property of bacteria has transformed our view of microbiology, but protozoan parasites have not generally been considered in this context. Works discussed illustrate the potential for concepts of sociomicrobiology to provide insight into parasite biology and should stimulate new approaches for thinking about parasites and parasite-host interactions.

  19. Social Engineering hits Social Commerce

    Degenhardt, Werner; Wiele, Johannes

    Looking at social commerce, a bunch of bewildering phenomena attracts the attention of social psychologists. The way customers participate today shows attitudes and ethical behavior which cannot be explained from the inherent conditions of Web 2.0 environments alone. Fraud often succeeds, when you do not expect it, and honesty can be found under circumstances that do not support honesty at all. The current situation seems to result from customers assigning experience and ethics from real world business to virtual business environments. But there are indications that this situation may change. Social commerce could suffer as soon as customers would use its inherent weaknesses to their own advantage. The following article outlines first approaches to research into this topic.

    To examine the impact of Seguro Popular (Mexican social health insurance for the poor; SP) on diabetes and hypertension care, intermediate process indicators for older adults (>50 years): pharmacological treatment, blood glucose tests, the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and adherence to their nutrition and exercise program. (CAM was defined as products or practices that were not part of the medical standard of care.) Repeated cross-sectional surveys from Encuesta Nacional de Salud y Nutrición (Mexican Health and Nutrition Survey, ENSANUT), a nationally representative health and nutrition survey sampling N = 45,294 older adults in 2000, N = 45,241 older adults in 2005-2006, and N = 46,277 older adults in 2011-2012. Fixed-effects instrumental variable (FE-IV) repeated cross-sectional at the individual level with municipality fixed-effects estimation was performed. We found a marginally significant effect of SP on the use of insulin and oral agents (40 percentage points). Contrary to that expected, no other significant differences were found for diabetes or hypertension treatment and care indicators. Social health insurance for the poor improved some but not all health care process indicators among diabetic and hypertensive older people in Mexico. © Health Research and Educational Trust.

Estudio cualitativo con 8 grupos focales, realizado en Guerrero, Jalisco, Morelos y Sinaloa, México, durante 2005-2006. Participaron 40 varones y 63 mujeres. El principal apoyo para la vida cotidiana y la condición de salud de los adultos mayores proviene de los familiares cercanos, en algunos casos de vecinos. Los apoyos de los adultos mayores son básicamente materiales y económicos, así como cierto tipo de acompañamiento y traslado a consultas médicas. El apoyo emocional es mínimo o inexistente, igual la compañía cotidiana y la integración en la vida familiar. Se identificó una ausencia significativa de apoyo por parte del gobierno o de organizaciones religiosas o civiles. La familia continúa siendo la fuente fundamental de apoyo. Es necesario incrementar las acciones gubernamentales para la población adulta mayor y transformar la idea de que las necesidades de esta población es una responsabilidad individual más que colectiva.The aim of this paper was to analyze social support and living conditions among poor elderly people in Mexican cities. A qualitative study with eight focus groups was carried out in Guadalajara, Cuernavaca, Chilpancingo, and Culiacan, Mexico, in 2005. Forty men and 63 women participated in the study. The main support for the elderly in daily living came from their immediate family and in some cases from neighbors.

    Suburban and residential areas have often been associated with everyday, routine and family relations, and this article explores how everyday life and sociality are changing in suburban areas in the context of what is variously called the post-industrial and borderless city. The article suggests...... that such areas can be seen as under-appreciated in our evaluation of what constitutes the quality of city life. The article develops a social practice perspective drawing on Goffman, and is based on empirical work carried out in two newly-built suburban areas in greater Copenhagen. Approximately twenty residents...... from young families were interviewed and asked to take photos. These residents all had middleclass, but different educational backgrounds. The analysis shows that residents want to maintain a sense of the city, seeking different ways of doing so, and hence continuing to being cosmopolitan. At the same...

  6. Social information

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luiz Fernando de Barros Campos

    Full Text Available Based on Erving Goffman's work, the article aims to discuss a definition of information centered on the type conveyed by individuals in a multimodal way, encompassing language and body in situations of co-presence, where face-to-face interaction occurs, and influencing inter-subjective formation of the self. Six types of information are highlighted: material information, expressive information, ritualized information, meta-information, strategic information, and information displays. It is argued that the construction of this empirical object tends to dissolve the tension among material, cognitive and pragmatic aspects, constituting an example of the necessary integration among them. Some vulnerable characteristics of the theory are critically mentioned and it is suggested that the concept of information displays could provide a platform to approach the question of the interaction order in its relations with the institutional and social orders, and consequently, to reassess the scope of the notion of social information analyzed.

    La reforma produjo una honda crisis en el sector y dio como resultado la privatización del sistema de salud, la desaparición del Instituto Colombiano de Seguros Sociales y una posición dominante oligopólica de las corporaciones intermediarias aseguradoras con efectos muy negativos sobre la medicina como profesión y como ciencia.

Las tasas de mortalidad por SIDA siguen aumentando; el índice anual parasitario de malaria asciende. Tenemos ahora problema con enfermedades reemergentes. Los indicadores de salud materna, las tasas de complicaciones perinatales no muestran cambios significativos durante los últimos años; la tasa de embarazo en adolescentes es muy alta.

The oil industry represents a substantial exposition for insurance international market because of the catastrophic nature of its risks, that entails a capacity dependency. The most of Insurance split into several insurers and reinsurer and are distributed into several markets and several regions of the world. The oil and gas branch of insurance covers: physical damage to equipment (platforms, vessels, drill ship etc), build, operation and liability in consequence of claims. The contract of insurance is complex because it is specific and demands much negotiation of rates and conditions. Moreover it is needed to find reliable insurers which want to accept the risk. There are alternatives to insurance market created by oil companies such as Captive and Mutual companies. The insurance international market built a complex and customized structure in order to be able to offer coverage to upstream risks and to participate in the amounts related to oil and gas production.

    Full Text Available After a review of the historical background of the relations between Iceland and the European Union, this article examines to what extent this country’s profile, from an objective and subjective perspective, could favour a possible accession to the block. Later, the manifestations and the consequences of the 2008 economic crisis are analysed, showing that this episode gave a new breath to its European path. The last part emphasizes the facts that impair the present narrowing of relations between Reykjavik and the Union, concluding that they are very likely to put this process out of track.

  19. Coastal nutrification and coral health at Porto Seguro reefs, Brazil

    Costa, O.; Attrill, M.; Nimmo, M.

    2003-04-01

    Human activities have substantially increased the natural flux of nutrients to coastal systems worldwide. In Brazilian reefs, all major stresses (sedimentation, overfishing, tourism-related activities and nutrification) are human induced. To assess nutrification levels in Brazilian coastal reefs, measurements of the distribution patterns of nutrients and chlorophyll concentrations were conducted in three nearshore and offshore reefs with distinct nutrient inputs along the south coast of Bahia State. Seawater and porewater samples were analysed for soluble reactive phosphorus, total oxidised nitrogen and reactive silica. Benthic surveys were performed at all sites to investigate the relationships between benthic community composition and nutrient and chlorophyll concentrations. Sampling was undertaken in dry and rainy seasons. Results of both seawater and porewater nutrient measurements revealed the occurrence of consistent spatial and temporal patterns. An inshore-offshore gradient reflects the occurrence of land-based point sources, with significant amount of nutrients being delivered by human activities on the coast (untreated sewage and groundwater seepage). Another spatial gradient is related to distance from a localized source of pollution (an urban settlement without sewerage treatment) with two nearshore reefs presenting distinct nutrient and chlorophyll concentrations. Seasonal variations suggest that submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is the primary source of nutrients for the coastal reefs during rainy season. The data also suggests that the SGD effect is not restricted to nearshore reefs, and may be an important factor controlling the differences between landward and seaward sides on the offshore reef. Benthic community assessment revealed that turf alga is the dominant group in all studied reefs and that zoanthids are the organisms most adapted to take advantage of nutrient increase in coastal areas. At nearshore reefs, there was a negative correlation between zoanthids and algal abundance and a positive correlation with the amount of available space for settlement. On the offshore reef, correlation of algal cover with both zoanthids and available space were negative, suggesting that hard substrate may be the primary limiting factor for algal settlement and growth in the nearshore reefs. Highly variable physical disturbances (like wave energy and low tide exposure) between landward and seaward reef sides appear to be the factors controlling algal distribution in the offshore reef. Highly spatial variability in coral cover ultimately reflects the patchy distribution of stony corals over the reefs.

  20. Las políticas de salud reproductiva en el Perú: reformas sociales y derechos ciudadanos Reproductive health policies in Peru: social reforms and citizenship rights

    Full Text Available El artículo analiza el caso del proceso de elaboración de políticas de salud reproductiva en el Perú, en el contexto de las reformas de las políticas sociales implementadas durante los últimos 15 años. Las reformas en el sector de la salud sólo han reparado en forma parcial el acceso desigual de las mujeres a la planificación familiar, a los derechos reproductivos y a la atención materna. Las fuentes principales de desigualdad están relacionadas con la naturaleza segmentada del sistema de la atención de la salud que ocasiona, entre otros temas, que la mayoría de las mujeres sin seguro provenientes de las clases populares dependan de qué y cómo sean provistos los servicios públicos de la atención médica. Por otra parte, el continuo papel de sectores conservadores en los debates sobre políticas de salud reproductiva sigue teniendo un impacto sobre los servicios públicamente disponibles de planificación familiar.The article analyzes the case of reproductive health policy-making in Peru in the context of recent social policy reforms. Health-sector reforms have only partially redressed Peruvian women's unequal access to family planning, reproductive rights and maternal care. The main sources of inequalities are related to the segmented character of the health-care system, with the highest burden placed on the public sector. The majority of women from popular classes, who are not protected by an insurance plan, are dependent upon what and how public services are provided. Simultaneously, the continuing role of conservative sectors in public debates about reproductive health policy has a strong impact on public family planning services and other reproductive rights.

    No, this is not the title of the latest horror film to appear on our screens, only a reflection of the very tense situation in which we find our two social mainstays: the health insurance scheme and pension fund. If both are in deficit today, this is not due to a lack of timely warning. For several years, the Member States have been asked to make decisions. However, with the exception of a few small measures, they continually delay the moment when they will truly have to face up to their obligations. We remind you that CERN is not only our employer, but also our State. When we join the Organization, we leave our national systems. CERN Council has supreme power to decide on the level of our salaries and of our social security. As far as the latter is concerned, the fact that the share of contributions is fixed at 1/3 for the staff and 2/3 for the Organization has often been the reason for much procrastination by Council. This waiting game could soon be over though, as this year will see the conclusions of t...

    This article presents a critical systematic discussion of Shiller’s writings from the late 1970s to the present, as well as an examination of the social-psychological assumptions on which his work is built. We argue that Shiller’s work displays a tension between mimetic and anti-mimetic tendencies......, i.e. between understanding financial markets as captured by fads and fashions (mimesis), and at the same time understanding such markets on the basis of a notion of homo economicus (an essentially anti-mimetic figure). Identifying that tension not only sheds novel light on Shiller’s work, but also...... allows us to critically discuss Mirowski’s negative appraisal of Shiller’s behavioural finance programme. Further, we argue that the mimetic/anti-mimetic tension in Shiller’s work can equally be identified in a broader range of theories about financial markets, and that attending to it therefore opens up...

    To review a selection of research published in the last 12 months on the role of social influence in the obesity epidemic. Recent papers add evidence to previous work linking social network structures and obesity. Social norms, both eating norms and body image norms, are identified as one major source of social influence through networks. Social capital and social stress are additional types of social influence. There is increasing evidence that social influence and social network structures are significant factors in obesity. Deeper understanding of the mechanisms of action and dynamics of social influence, and its link with other factors involved in the obesity epidemic, is an important goal for further research.

    Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is frequently seen in the orthopedic outpatient consultation. The aim of this paper is to identify risk factors associated with CLBP in patients cared for during the year 2012, at a General Hospital belonging to Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, in Yucatán, Mexico. Data of 95 patients with CLBP (cases) was compared with data of 190 patients without CLBP (controls) using a binary logistic model (BLM), from which odd ratios (OR) and 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CI) were obtained. School level, body mass index (BMI) as a continuous variable, story of heavy weight lifting, some types of comorbidities and dyslipidemia, were identified as statistically significant in the bivariate analysis (p ≤ 0.05 each). In a second step, secondary school level (OR 0.25, 95 % CI: 0.08-0.81), dyslipidemia (OR 0.26, 95 % CI: 0.12-0.56), heavy weights lifting (OR 0.22, 95 % CI: 0.12-0.42), and BMI (OR 1.22, 95 % CI: 1.12-1.32) were all identified by the BLM as statistically significant. In this sample, secondary school level, dislipidemia and heavy weights lifting reduced the risk of CLBP, while the BMI increased the risk.

El precio se fija teniendo como referencia la operatoria del mercado de cereales de Rosario, neto de costos de transporte e intermediación. El volumen de producción, representativo del rendimiento normal, es 2000 kg/ha (valor inferior a la media provincial. Respecto a aceptación social, la mayoría de los agricultores sojeros disponen de 120 hectáreas no propias, su familia no vive ni trabaja en el campo, hecho que impide desarrollar sentido de pertenencia y transferir el saber hacer. La ocupación es de una persona cada cien hectáreas cultivadas. Finalmente, se anhela que éste estudio, contribuya a una explotación sustentable y con la comunidad científico-profesional involucrada.

    2016-01-01

    Schizotypy is a personality organisation that is closely related to schizotypal personality disorder and schizophrenia and is characterised by deficits in social functioning. Although the dimensions of social dysfunction have not yet been fully explored certain aspects of social dysfunction are promising predictive markers for schizophrenia. To describe schizotypy and its influence on social functioning. We reviewed the literature systematically using the online databases PubMed and PsycINFO. The disorder known as schizotypy lies at the basis of schizotypal personality disorder. Both disorders are characterised by an increased risk for schizophrenia. The social dysfunctioning seen in schizotypy corresponds to the social dysfunction seen in schizophrenia. Impairments in social cognition are causal factors of this social dysfunction. Both the negative and the positive dimension of schizotypy influence social cognition. More focused, objective and interactive research to the various aspects of social functioning in schizotypy is needed in order to discover potential premorbid markers for schizophrenia.

    Social exclusion anxiety is a term which builds on a social-psychological concept of human beings as existentially dependent on social embeddedness. This entry explores the concept in relation to bullying among children, which is a widespread and serious problem in schools and institutions. Social...... exclusion anxiety and longing for belonging are both central aspects of the affects and processes that enact and challenge social groups. Social exclusion anxiety should not be confused with ‘social phobia’, which is a concept within clinical psychology that focuses on the individual and refers to a phobic...... psychological condition. Social exclusion anxiety instead points to a distributed affect which circulates and smolders in all social groups.

METHODS: it was assessed 11 intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI cycles from couples whose men were HIV seropositive (HIV Group, and 35 cycles in which semen donors' samples were used in ICSI procedures (Control Group. Semen samples from Control Group were submitted to routine semen analysis, sperm wash and cryopreservation. The man from HIV Group received previous antibiotic therapy; the semen samples were analyzed routinely and prepared by sperm wash and density gradient method before cryopreservation. Those samples were evaluated to viral load and ICSI was performed when no HIV was detected. RESULTS: regards to semen analysis the groups were similar to sperm concentration and progressive motility. Nevertheless, the percentage of sperm with normal morphology were higher on Control Group (14.3% than HIV (5.8%; p=0.002. On embryo parameters assessment, the normal fertilization (CT: 74.7% and HIV: 71.7; p=0.838, respectively and good embryos rate (CT: 42.4% and HIV: 65.1%; p=0.312, respectively were comparable. On the other hand, the Control Group presented better clinic results than HIV Group (ongoing pregnancy rate: 52.9% versus 12.5%; p=0.054, and implantation rate: 42.6 versus 10.4%; p=0.059, respectively, however the differences were not statistically significant.

    Full Text Available Producto de cierta ambigüedad histórica respecto del lugar de los niños en la sociedad, en el siglo XX se edificó una noción de infancia asociada a la promoción de espacios seguros para su desarrollo personal, social y educativo. En ese contexto, surge el emporio mediático Disney, el cual apunta en el nuevo milenio a nuevos horizontes: las MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online para niños. Prueba de ello ha sido la adquisición, por parte de dicha compañía, del Club Penguin, una plataforma que posee más de 12 millones de usuarios registrados. En el presente trabajo, se analiza la construcción de realidad que hacen los niños en Club Penguin, así como sus formas de interactuar y comunicarse en un mundo virtual mediado por el consumo, el control y múltiples concepciones de territorio. De igual forma, el estudio aborda cómo los padres de familia entienden el ciberespacio y por qué Disney se configura como un sinónimo de confianza o de protección para sus hijos. El análisis del Club Penguin se hace desde una postura crítica, con el objetivo de evidenciar el grado de penetración del discurso Disney en edades tempranas, el cual se enmascara en una MMO que pese a ofrecer altos grados de seguridad ante peligros como el ciberacoso, también transmite componentes ideológicos que pueden llegar a ser nocivos.

  10. What is social about social perception research?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available A growing consensus in social cognitive neuroscience holds that large portions of the primate visual brain are dedicated to the processing of social information, i.e., to those aspects of stimuli that are usually encountered in social interactions such as others’ facial expressions, actions and symbols. Yet, studies of social perception have mostly employed simple pictorial representations of conspecifics. These stimuli are social only in the restricted sense that they physically resemble objects with which the observer would typically interact. In an equally important sense, however, these stimuli might be regarded as ‘non-social’: the observer knows that they are viewing pictures and might therefore not attribute current mental states to the stimuli or might do so in a qualitatively different way than in a real social interaction. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of such higher-order conceptualisation of the stimulus for social perceptual processing. Here, we assess the similarity between the various types of stimuli used in the laboratory and object classes encountered in real social interactions. We distinguish two different levels at which experimental stimuli can match social stimuli as encountered in everyday social settings: (i the extent to which a stimulus’ physical properties resemble those typically encountered in social interactions and (ii the higher-level conceptualisation of the stimulus as indicating another person’s mental states. We illustrate the significance of this distinction for social perception research and report new empirical evidence further highlighting the importance of mental state attribution for perceptual processing. Finally, we discuss the potential of this approach to inform studies of clinical conditions such as autism.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The reform processes and the developments of social policy to solve the major social problems of the socially vulnerable population, among them, children in particular, take place in Latvia during the last 20 years. Protection of children rights is declared one of the strategic priorities of the state social policy. At the same time the problem of child neglect and child abandonment in Latvia has not yet been sufficiently conceptualized. Already since 1990-ies Latvian society has clearly faced with an objective necessity of solving problems of child abandonment in connection with an increasing number of social orphans. The situation was complicated by the fact that the formation of a fundamentally new system of social policy, social support and assistance to risk children had to be developed and implemented in conditions of economic transition to market economy relations, increasing social tensions, and sharp increase in social inequality and social discrimination. Among the enourmous number of economical and social problems in the developing democratic state, the issue of child abandonment as an important social problem has been addressed rather fragmentary. The term “social orphanhood” does not appear in the social policy vocabulary of the Latvian social policy doscourse.

    2016-01-01

    Demonstrations that analyses of social media content can align with measurement from sample surveys have raised the question of whether survey research can be supplemented or even replaced with less costly and burdensome data mining of already-existing or “found” social media content. But just how trustworthy such measurement can be—say, to replace official statistics—is unknown. Survey researchers and data scientists approach key questions from starting assumptions and analytic traditions that differ on, for example, the need for representative samples drawn from frames that fully cover the population. New conversations between these scholarly communities are needed to understand the potential points of alignment and non-alignment. Across these approaches, there are major differences in (a) how participants (survey respondents and social media posters) understand the activity they are engaged in; (b) the nature of the data produced by survey responses and social media posts, and the inferences that are legitimate given the data; and (c) practical and ethical considerations surrounding the use of the data. Estimates are likely to align to differing degrees depending on the research topic and the populations under consideration, the particular features of the surveys and social media sites involved, and the analytic techniques for extracting opinions and experiences from social media. Traditional population coverage may not be required for social media content to effectively predict social phenomena to the extent that social media content distills or summarizes broader conversations that are also measured by surveys.

    1998-01-01

    Recently, there has been a resurgence of research on emotion, including the socialization of emotion. In this article, a heuristic model of factors contributing to the socialization of emotion is presented. Then literature relevant to the socialization of children's emotion and emotion-related behavior by parents is reviewed, including (a) parental reactions to children's emotions, (b) socializers' discussion of emotion, and (c) socializers' expression of emotion. The relevant literature is not conclusive and most of the research is correlational. However, the existing body of data provides initial support for the view that parental socialization practices have effects on children's emotional and social competence and that the socialization process is bidirectional. In particular, parental negative emotionality and negative reactions to children's expression of emotion are associated with children's negative emotionality and low social competence. In addition, possible moderators of effects such as level of emotional arousal are discussed.

    This brief presents new architecture and strategies for distribution of social video content. A primary framework for socially-aware video delivery and a thorough overview of the possible approaches is provided. The book identifies the unique characteristics of socially-aware video access and social content propagation, revealing the design and integration of individual modules that are aimed at enhancing user experience in the social network context. The change in video content generation, propagation, and consumption for online social networks, has significantly challenged the traditional video delivery paradigm. Given the massive amount of user-generated content shared in online social networks, users are now engaged as active participants in the social ecosystem rather than as passive receivers of media content. This revolution is being driven further by the deep penetration of 3G/4G wireless networks and smart mobile devices that are seamlessly integrated with online social networking and media-sharing s...

  11. Social traits, social networks and evolutionary biology.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fisher, D N; McAdam, A G

    2017-12-01

    The social environment is both an important agent of selection for most organisms, and an emergent property of their interactions. As an aggregation of interactions among members of a population, the social environment is a product of many sets of relationships and so can be represented as a network or matrix. Social network analysis in animals has focused on why these networks possess the structure they do, and whether individuals' network traits, representing some aspect of their social phenotype, relate to their fitness. Meanwhile, quantitative geneticists have demonstrated that traits expressed in a social context can depend on the phenotypes and genotypes of interacting partners, leading to influences of the social environment on the traits and fitness of individuals and the evolutionary trajectories of populations. Therefore, both fields are investigating similar topics, yet have arrived at these points relatively independently. We review how these approaches are diverged, and yet how they retain clear parallelism and so strong potential for complementarity. This demonstrates that, despite separate bodies of theory, advances in one might inform the other. Techniques in network analysis for quantifying social phenotypes, and for identifying community structure, should be useful for those studying the relationship between individual behaviour and group-level phenotypes. Entering social association matrices into quantitative genetic models may also reduce bias in heritability estimates, and allow the estimation of the influence of social connectedness on trait expression. Current methods for measuring natural selection in a social context explicitly account for the fact that a trait is not necessarily the property of a single individual, something the network approaches have not yet considered when relating network metrics to individual fitness. Harnessing evolutionary models that consider traits affected by genes in other individuals (i.e. indirect genetic

    We review the current state of social communication between healthcare professionals, the role of consumer social networking, and some emerging technologies to address the gaps. In particular, the review covers (1) the current state of loose social networking for continuing medical education (CME) and other broadcast information dissemination; (2) social networking for business promotion; (3) social networking for peer collaboration, including simple communication as well as more robust data-centered collaboration around patient care; and (4) engaging patients on social platforms, including integrating consumer-originated data into the mix of healthcare data. We will see how, as the nature of healthcare delivery moves from the institution-centric way of tradition to a more social and networked ambulatory pattern that we see emerging today, the nature of health IT has also moved from enterprise-centric systems to more socially networked, cloud-based options.

    The growing popularity and use of social media tools such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, blogging, and wikis have led to a social media revolution. Given this widespread influence, it is important for educators, administrators, and technologists to understand the risks of using social media in the classroom and workplace. To investigate popular social media sites and their effect on radiologic technology education and business practices. A comprehensive search of literature was performed to examine social media and its applications in education, health care, and business. Social media use is on the rise, affecting all aspects of mainstream society. Leaders in the radiologic sciences should be familiar with social media and cognizant of its risks. Future studies regarding social media use in the radiologic sciences are necessary to determine its effect on the radiologic science community. ©2011 by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.

Inductively, through grounded theory, this paper uses secondary data to develop a theoretical model which presents the relationship between the following concepts: business codes, stakeholders, Corporate Social Performance (CSP and Organisational Social Capital (OSC. This study brings together two main areas of research, namely: Organisational Social Capital and business ethics. This represents a gap in the literature, to which this research will address. Three propositions are put forward and discussed using secondary data collection methods. The findings suggest that there is a strong correlation between the characteristics which improve the quality of organisation-stakeholders relationship and the effectiveness of implementing business codes and, therefore, the increasing Corporate Social Performance. The proposed ethical framework has, at the same time, a similar effect by incrementing Organisational Social Capital, because it shares similar features with the relation between organisation-stakeholders, business codes and CSP.

    Quiero ante todo agradecer a los organizadores del Congreso de AEXMUN y particularmente a los promotores de este Simposio por la invitación a participar en él a nombre de la Academia Nacional de Medicina. La Academia se ha venido ocupando de los temas de salud y seguridad social en el país aún desde antes de fundarse el Instituto de Seguros Sociales, y ha propuesto y seguido con mucho interés las disposiciones fijadas por la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente que acaba de tratar en forma por demás brillante el Dr. Antonio Yepes.

    Inicialmente, tendríamos que comenzar por analizar, así sea brevemente, cuáles son las proyecciones futuras para la salud en Colombia y especialmente en las que serán la primera y la segunda década del siglo XXI. Es de esperar que el descenso en el índice de crecimiento demográfico continúe por debajo del 1.9 por ciento actual, lo cual, al tiempo de reducir la presión sobre los sectores materno-infantil y pediátrico traerá como consecuencia un mayor recargo de los costos de salud hacia la población geriátrica, por encima del promedio de vida de 64 alias. Este fenómeno, que ya se está viviendo, incide altamente sobre los costos de seguridad social no sólo en lo que a atención en salud se refiere sino también en lo que respecta a invalidez, vejez y muerte.

    En cuanto a las proyecciones en salud de la población colombiana tendremos que referirnos a las mencionadas por Francisco Yepes y colaboradores en su libro “La salud en Colombia” editado en 1990 . Objetivo primordial será el de mejorar la salud de los nÍ1ios, disminuyendo la mortalidad infantil a por lo menos 20 por 1000 y la de los niños de 1a 4 alias a por lo menos 1por 1000 con estrategias dirigidas a disminuir la incidencia de problemas perinatales, la frecuencia y letalidad de enfermedades transmisibles, lo mismo que la de accidentes en ese grupo de edad.

    2015-01-01

    In the 1970s, when the social science history movement emerged in the United States, leading to the founding of the Social Science History Association, a simultaneous movement arose in which historians looked to cultural anthropology for inspiration. Although both movements involved historians turning to social sciences for theory and method, they reflected very different views of the nature of the historical enterprise. Cultural anthropology, most notably as preached by Clifford Geertz, became a means by which historians could find a theoretical basis in the social sciences for rejecting a scientific paradigm. This article examines this development while also exploring the complex ways cultural anthropology has embraced—and shunned—history in recent years. PMID:26549914

We introduce and define the constructs of social power, social class, and one's psychological sense of power. We next explore the complex relationship between social power and social class. Because social class can produce a sense of power within an individual, studies on social power can inform theory and research on social class. We conclude with a discussion of the current challenges and future opportunities for the study of social power and social class. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available A growing literature in human social genomics has begun to analyze how everyday life circumstances influence human gene expression. Social-environmental conditions such as urbanity, low socioeconomic status, social isolation, social threat, and low or unstable social status have been found to associate with differential expression of hundreds of gene transcripts in leukocytes and diseased tissues such as metastatic cancers. In leukocytes, diverse types of social adversity evoke a common conserved transcriptional response to adversity (CTRA characterized by increased expression of proinflammatory genes and decreased expression of genes involved in innate antiviral responses and antibody synthesis. Mechanistic analyses have mapped the neural "social signal transduction" pathways that stimulate CTRA gene expression in response to social threat and may contribute to social gradients in health. Research has also begun to analyze the functional genomics of optimal health and thriving. Two emerging opportunities now stand to revolutionize our understanding of the everyday life of the human genome: network genomics analyses examining how systems-level capabilities emerge from groups of individual socially sensitive genomes and near-real-time transcriptional biofeedback to empirically optimize individual well-being in the context of the unique genetic, geographic, historical, developmental, and social contexts that jointly shape the transcriptional realization of our innate human genomic potential for thriving.

    between individual and wider social learning. Many unsubstantiated claims for social learning exist, and there is frequently confusion between the concept itself and its potential outcomes. This lack of conceptual clarity has limited our capacity to assess whether social learning has occurred, and if so, what kind of learning has taken place, to what extent, between whom, when, and how. This response attempts to provide greater clarity on the conceptual basis for social learning. We argue that to be considered social learning, a process must: (1 demonstrate that a change in understanding has taken place in the individuals involved; (2 demonstrate that this change goes beyond the individual and becomes situated within wider social units or communities of practice; and (3 occur through social interactions and processes between actors within a social network. A clearer picture of what we mean by social learning could enhance our ability to critically evaluate outcomes and better understand the processes through which social learning occurs. In this way, it may be possible to better facilitate the desired outcomes of social learning processes.

    2017-12-01

    A large body of research in Western cultures has demonstrated the psychological and health effects of social class. This review outlines a cultural psychological approach to social stratification by comparing psychological and health manifestations of social class across Western and East Asian cultures. These comparisons suggest that cultural meaning systems shape how people make meaning and respond to material/structural conditions associated with social class, thereby leading to culturally divergent manifestations of social class. Specifically, unlike their counterparts in Western cultures, individuals of high social class in East Asian cultures tend to show high conformity and other-orientated psychological attributes. In addition, cultures differ in how social class impacts health (i.e. on which bases, through which pathways, and to what extent). Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  14. Understanding Social Media Logic

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José van Dijck

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available Over the past decade, social media platforms have penetrated deeply into the mech­anics of everyday life, affecting people's informal interactions, as well as institutional structures and professional routines. Far from being neutral platforms for everyone, social media have changed the conditions and rules of social interaction. In this article, we examine the intricate dynamic between social media platforms, mass media, users, and social institutions by calling attention to social media logic—the norms, strategies, mechanisms, and economies—underpin­ning its dynamics. This logic will be considered in light of what has been identified as mass me­dia logic, which has helped spread the media's powerful discourse outside its institutional boundaries. Theorizing social media logic, we identify four grounding principles—programmabil­ity, popularity, connectivity, and datafication—and argue that these principles become increas­ingly entangled with mass media logic. The logic of social media, rooted in these grounding principles and strategies, is gradually invading all areas of public life. Besides print news and broadcasting, it also affects law and order, social activism, politics, and so forth. Therefore, its sustaining logic and widespread dissemination deserve to be scrutinized in detail in order to better understand its impact in various domains. Concentrating on the tactics and strategies at work in social media logic, we reassess the constellation of power relationships in which social practices unfold, raising questions such as: How does social media logic modify or enhance ex­isting mass media logic? And how is this new media logic exported beyond the boundaries of (social or mass media proper? The underlying principles, tactics, and strategies may be relat­ively simple to identify, but it is much harder to map the complex connections between plat­forms that distribute this logic: users that employ them, technologies that

  15. The Social Industry

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Christian Sandvig

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Historical mass media and contemporary social media are typically seen as opposites. “The culture industry” was the term used by the Frankfurt School in the 1940s to explain the emerging commercial mass media. The culture industry was portrayed as a semi-fascist apparatus of indoctrination. It selected cultural products and made them popular based on obscure determinations of economic value. In contrast, the common view of contemporary social media is that it is more democratic. Using voting algorithms and human voting, social media can finally realize widespread participation that was denied to the passive audiences of the mass media system. Social media appear to remove the bottleneck of the mass media system, allowing everyone to aspire to celebrity, or at least popularity. However, despite these appearances, social media have also now evolved into an elaborate system that selects social products and makes them popular based on obscure determinations of economic value. Social media platforms filter, censor, control, and train—and they may do so without the user’s awareness. Advances in computation now make a social media industry possible that is based on individual difference and action rather than sameness and passivity. But in other respects, the social industry resembles the culture industry: the co-option of culture has been superseded by the co-option of sociality. The word “social” may then be the biggest challenge facing those who study social media. Our task is to rescue genuine sociality from the emerging social industry.

    This brief presents research results on social cognitive radio networks, a transformational and innovative networking paradigm that promotes the nexus between social interactions and cognitive radio networks. Along with a review of the research literature, the text examines the key motivation and challenges of social cognitive radio network design. Three socially inspired distributed spectrum sharing mechanisms are introduced: adaptive channel recommendation mechanism, imitation-based social spectrum sharing mechanism, and evolutionarily stable spectrum access mechanism. The brief concludes with a discussion of future research directions which ascertains that exploiting social interactions for distributed spectrum sharing will advance the state-of-the-art of cognitive radio network design, spur a new line of thinking for future wireless networks, and enable novel wireless service and applications.
