  3. OPERA's overture

    CERN Multimedia

    2006-01-01

    When neutrinos interact, they mainly produce one muon and a shower of hadrons. Here we see two interactions in the heart of the OPERA detector: one in the steel plates of the first magnet (left), the other in the target's scintillation counters (right). OPERA's opening score has been played at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy, and it's in perfect harmony with the melody of the CNGS neutrino beam from CERN, 730 kilometres away. OPERA's overture was played on 18 August 2006, when the first tracks, corresponding to interactions with CNGS neutrinos, were recorded in its detectors. To the great satisfaction of the teams on both of the Alps, the quality of the CNGS beam is fully in line with expectations, as are the first tracks observed by OPERA, which records data with hardly any down time. Over a five-day period, a little over 300 interactions correlated with the CNGS beam were identified, just as predicted. During this first run it has been possible to verify the correct operation of the electronic detector...

    2007-01-01

    OPERA, the experiment which uses the neutrino beam of CERN’s CNGS facility, has delivered its first neutrino "photos". The core of the detector has been commissioned and has produced images of events resulting from neutrino collisions. The reconstruction of the core (a few cubic millimetres!) of a neutrino interaction at OPERA. The neutrino arriving from the left of the image has interacted with the lead of a brick, producing various particles identifiable by their tracks visible in the emulsion.The snapshot is tiny but it was greeted with enthusiasm by the physicists of OPERA. On 2 October, for the first time, the experiment at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy "photographed" an event produced by the beam of neutrinos sent from CERN, 732 kilometres away. One of the 60,000 photosensitive bricks already installed at the heart of the experiment had produced its first particle track. The commissioning of the OPERA experiment began la...

    CERN Bulletin

    2011-01-01

    Three seminars – at CERN, at Gran Sasso and in Japan – and an article calling for the scrutiny of the scientific community: the OPERA Collaboration opened its research publicly. In addition to huge press coverage, this triggered welcome reactions from colleagues around the world, many of whom will attempt to independently interpret and reproduce the measurement. OPERA’s Spokesperson touches base with the Bulletin.   The CERN Main Auditorium was crowded as OPERA Physics co-ordinator Dario Autiero presented the results of their research (23 September 2011). According to the OPERA strategy, the results of the measurements are in the hands of the scientific community and, as for any other scientific result, several months will be needed before other groups will be able to perform an independent measurement. In the meantime, the OPERA Collaboration is dealing with an avalanche of emails from the scientific community, members of the general public, and the press. &...

  7. Backstage at OPERA

    CERN Multimedia

    2003-01-01

    In the latest in our series of articles on the neutrino beam to Gran Sasso we turn the spotlight this week onto the two experiments under construction at the Gran Sasso Laboratory - OPERA and ICARUS. In March 2003, installation of the OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tRacking Apparatus) detector began in Hall C of the INFN's Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy. The OPERA-CNGS1 Collaboration comprises 170 physicists from 35 research institutes and universities worldwide. It is expected that the complete detector will be ready to receive the CNGS neutrino beam and start data acquisition in August 2006. This article gives an overview of the OPERA experiment. The OPERA experiment aims to clear up the mystery of neutrino oscillation. But what are more precisely its objectives ? When cosmic rays interact in the atmosphere, two kinds of neutrino - muon-neutrinos and electron-neutrinos - are produced. In theory there should be twice as many muon-neutrinos as electron-neutrinos, but experiments find too few of the...

  8. Opera and neuroscience.

    2015-01-01

    Opera is the most complete form of theatrical representation, characterized by musical accompaniment, both instrumental and vocal. It has played an important role in sociocultural spheres, affecting the various social strata and reflecting customs and ideas in different centuries. Composers have created pieces that have also shown the development of medicine. Since the birth of opera in seventeenth century in Italy, neuroscience has played an important role in influencing the representation of madness and neurological aspects. From the Folly of the Renaissance, a path toward a representation of madness was developed, initially linked to the myths of classical antiquity. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, madness was represented as comical or funny, of a loving nature and influenced by the spread of the Commedia dell'Arte (Comedy of Art). In the nineteenth century, with the rise of the first scientific theories of the mind, insanity took more precise connotations and was separated from other psychiatric and neurological diseases. The operas of the twentieth century depicted psychiatric and neurological diseases, taking into account newer medical and scientific discoveries. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The OPERA neutrino oscillation experiment foresees the construction of two magnetized iron spectrometers located after the lead-nuclear emulsion targets. The magnet is made up of two vertical walls of rectangular cross section connected by return yokes. The particle trajectories are measured by high precision drift tubes located before and after the arms of the magnet. Moreover, the magnet steel is instrumented with Resistive Plate Chambers that ease pattern recognition and allow a calorimetric measurement of the hadronic showers. In this paper we review the construction of the spectrometers. In particular, we describe the results obtained from the magnet and RPC prototypes and the installation of the final apparatus at the Gran Sasso laboratories. We discuss the mechanical and magnetic properties of the steel and the techniques employed to calibrate the field in the bulk of the magnet. Moreover, results of the tests and issues concerning the mass production of the Resistive Plate Chambers are reported. Final...

    OPERA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment designed to find tau neutrinos appearing in a pure muon neutrino beam. Recently, a measurement of the flight time of the neutrinos between the CNGS at CERN and the OPERA detector at the LNGS has been performed. It was found that the neutrinos arrive at the detector significantly earlier in time than expected if travelling at the speed of light. In this talk, the main aspects of this measurement are presented, including timing and geodesy issues and the analysis procedure. An update concerning results with a fine structured time distribution of the beam is given, as well as latest information on some additional cross checks.

    1991-01-01

    OPERAS is a personal-computer (PC) based software to collect and process simulator data on control-room operators responses during requalification training scenarios. The data collection scheme is based upon approach developed earlier during the EPRI Operator Reliability Experiments project. The software allows automated data collection from simulator, thus minimizing simulator staff time and resources to collect, maintain and process data which can be useful in monitoring, assessing and enhancing the progress of crew reliability and effectiveness. The system is designed to provide the data and output information in the form of user-friendly charts, tables and figures for use by plant staff. OPERAS prototype software has been implemented at the Diablo Canyon (PWR) and Millstone (BWR) plants and is currently being used to collect operator response data. Data collected from similator include plant-state variables such as reactor pressure and temperature, malfunction, times at which annunciators are activated, operator actions and observations of crew behavior by training staff. The data and systematic analytical results provided by the OPERAS system can contribute to increase objectivity by the utility probabilistic risk analysis (PRA) and training staff in monitoring and assessing reliability of their crews

  20. Levi-Strauss and the Opera

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vlado Kotnik

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available This paper is dedicated to Claude Levi-Strauss and his structural reading of opera as metaphorical ‘composing’ of an anthropological grand opera, materialized in the four-volume study of Mythologiques, which refers to Wagner’s tetralogy of The Ring. He created a type of comparative view of the function and structure of myth schemes in Amerindian culture and the orchestral scores of Wagner’s operas, and implicitly signalled that European music, with its eminent representation – opera – has had the same value or similar symbolic position in the mind and life of a contemporary European that myth has had in ‘the savage mind’. Through this, he can lead us to the understanding of opera as myth and metaphor. However, the paper extends the discussion on Levi-Strauss to a broader historical picture of the relationship between opera and mythology as two symbolic systems of European culture.

    The main task of the Target Tracker detector of the long baseline neutrino oscillation OPERA experiment is to locate in which of the target elementary constituents, the lead/emulsion bricks, the neutrino interactions have occurred and also to give calorimetric information about each event. The technology used consists in walls of two planes of plastic scintillator strips, one per transverse direction. Wavelength shifting fibres collect the light signal emitted by the scintillator strips and guide it to both ends where it is read by multi-anode photomultiplier tubes. All the elements used in the construction of this detector and its main characteristics are described.

    2018-01-01

    The performing arts mirror the human condition. This study sought to analyze the reasons for inclusion of visually impaired characters in opera, the cause of the blindness or near blindness, and the dramatic purpose of the blindness in the storyline. We reviewed operas from the 18 th century to 2010 and included all characters with ocular problems. We classified the cause of each character's ocular problem (organic, nonorganic, and other) in relation to the thematic setting of the opera: biblical and mythical, blind beggars or blind musicians, historical (real or fictional characters), and contemporary or futuristic. Cases of blindness in 55 characters (2 as a choir) from 38 operas were detected over 3 centuries of repertoire: 11 had trauma-related visual impairment, 5 had congenital blindness, 18 had visual impairment of unknown cause, 9 had psychogenic or malingering blindness, and 12 were symbolic or miracle-related. One opera featured an ophthalmologist curing a patient. The research illustrates that visual impairment was frequently used as an artistic device to enhance the intent and situate an opera in its time.

  10. [Production of accentuated personality traits in baroque opera : Opera buffa Arcifanfano-Re dei matti (1749)].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Brunner, J; Hirsch, T; Steger, F

    2016-05-01

    Madness served primarily as a form of amusement for the spectators in operas of the seventeenth century. This representation was far removed from clinical reality. This circumstance changed in the eighteenth century at the time when tragic madness emerged in numerous operas. The opera buffa Arcifanfano-Re dei matti (Arcifanfano-King of fools, premiered in 1749 in Venice, text by Carlo Goldoni 1707-1793 and music by Baldassare Galuppi 1706-1785), which continuously enacts a realm of fools and is meant to appear amusing, is riddled with psychopathological abnormalities for which a retrospective diagnosis is methodologically rejected. However, the opera presents many subjects for working out a typology of fools based on outlasting personality traits of the protagonists. The libretto is investigated. A musical analysis is spared. The conceptualized typology of fools in the opera, which is oriented towards the seven main vices or deadly sins serves, in the tradition of moral satire, to critically hold up a mirror to the audience to reflect their own vices by an amusing characterization of the latter. Historically classified, the treatment of fools by means of isolation, custody, locking up in cages as well as authoritarian measures of submission reflects the custom in those days before humanizing the treatment of people with mental illness in the course of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. The opera Arcifanfano is essentially characterized by continuous madness. A typology of the fools can be worked out from the precise depiction of the personalities. A mirror is held up to the spectators in terms of vices, in the tradition of the contemporary baroque opera. At the same time, the opera can be classified psychiatrically and historically as a seismograph of its time when in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries people with mental illness were isolated and incarcerated.

    CERN Document Server

    Galati, Giuliana

    2016-01-01

    OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tRacking Apparatus) was a long-baseline experiment at the Gran Sasso laboratory (LNGS) designed to search for ν μ → ν τ oscillations in appearance mode. OPERA took data from 2008 to 2012 with the CNGS neutrino beam from CERN. The observation of five ν τ candidates allowed assessing the discovery of ν μ → ν τ appearance in the CNGS neutrino beam with a significance of 5 . 1 σ . The data analysis is still ongoing, with the goal of improving the sensitivity to the sterile neutrino search in the ν μ → ν τ and ν μ → ν e appearance channels and oscillation parameters with reduced statistical uncertainties. Current results will be presented and perspectives discussed.

  12. Interpreting OPERA results on superluminal neutrino

    CERN Document Server

    Giudice, Gian F; Strumia, Alessandro

    2012-01-01

    OPERA has claimed the discovery of superluminal propagation of neutrinos. We analyze the consistency of this claim with previous tests of special relativity. We find that reconciling the OPERA measurement with information from SN1987a and from neutrino oscillations requires stringent conditions. The superluminal limit velocity of neutrinos must be nearly flavor independent, must decrease steeply in the low-energy domain, and its energy dependence must depart from a simple power law. We construct illustrative models that satisfy these conditions, by introducing Lorentz violation in a sector with light sterile neutrinos. We point out that, quite generically, electroweak quantum corrections transfer the information of superluminal neutrino properties into Lorentz violations in the electron and muon sector, in apparent conflict with experimental data.

  13. Particles identification using nuclear emulsion in OPERA

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Manai, K.

    2007-10-01

    The Opera experiment will try to confirm the ν μ → ν τ oscillations by the appearance of the ν τ in a pure ν μ beam. Indeed, a neutrino beam almost pure is produced at CERN (CNGS Beam) and sent to the Opera detector. The detector is composed of two muons spectrometers and a target formed by walls of bricks. Each brick is an alternation of lead plates and emulsions. This modular structure allows to reconstruct the kink topology of the τ lepton decay with a high spatial resolution. The great challenge of the Opera experiment is to detect the ν τ interactions with the less uncertainty. To reduce this uncertainty it is essential to identify with the greatest efficiency any background event not including a tau particle. My work permits to reduce background. My principal contribution concerns the selection development, the reconstruction and the muons identification at low energy. This work is based on the setting of variables related to the deposit energy and the multiple scattering. Previously, only deposit energy was used in the analyses of pion/muon separation. This study allows doubling the muon identification efficiency at low energy. This leads to increase the background events rejection in Opera and to decrease the contamination by 30%. I also studied the nuclear emulsions capacity to identify charged particles through the analysis of a test beam carried out by the Nagoya group. This test contains protons and pions with different energies. My work proves that the European scan system gives comparable results with those obtained by the Japanese scan system. (author)

The beam is produced at CERN, 732 Km fa r from the detector , which is located underground in t he Gran Sasso laboratory. The evidence of the appearance signal will be provided by the detection of the daughter particles produced in the decay of the τ lepton.

    Acoustic characteristics of classical opera singing differ considerably between the Western and the Chinese cultures. Singers in the classical Peking opera tradition specialize on one out of a limited number of standard roles. Audio and electroglottograph signals were recorded for four performers of the Old Man role and three performers of the Colorful Face role. Recordings were made of the singers' speech and when they sang recitatives and songs from their roles. Sound pressure level, fundamental frequency, and spectrum characteristics were analyzed. Histograms showing the distribution of fundamental frequency showed marked peaks for the songs, suggesting a scale tone structure. Some of the intervals between these peaks were similar to those used in Western music. Vibrato rate was about 3.5Hz, that is, considerably slower than in Western classical singing. Spectra of vibrato-free tones contained unbroken series of harmonic partials sometimes reaching up to 17 000Hz. Long-term-average spectrum (LTAS) curves showed no trace of a singer's formant cluster. However, the Colorful Face role singers' LTAS showed a marked peak near 3300Hz, somewhat similar to that found in Western pop music singers. The mean LTAS spectrum slope between 700 and 6000Hz decreased by about 0.2dB/octave per dB of equivalent sound level. Copyright © 2012 The Voice Foundation. Published by Mosby, Inc.

    We study how much the unique ability of the OPERA experiment to directly detect {nu}{sub {tau}} can help in probing new, non-standard contact interactions of the third family of neutrinos. We perform a combined analysis of future, high-statistics MINOS and OPERA data. For the case of non-standard interactions in {nu}{sub {mu}} to {nu}{sub e} transitions we also include the impact of possible Double Chooz data. In all cases we find that the {nu}{sub {tau}} sample of OPERA is too small to be statistically significant, even if one doubles the nominal exposure of OPERA to 9x10{sup 19} pot. OPERA's real benefit for this measurement lies in its very high neutrino energy and hence very different L/E compared to MINOS.

    The OPERA collaboration has recently reported that neutrinos travel faster than light. We review the theoretical situation of constraints on violations of Lorentz invariance, focusing in particular on the compatibility between the OPERA results with both previous constraints and recently obtained ones. We generalize to higher order operators the recent constraint provided by the absence of neutrino energy loss, via electron-positron pair production at OPERA energies, and show that no modi ed in vacuo dispersion relation within an effective field theory context is compatible with OPERA results. We conclude that the OPERA result is incompatible with current observations, at least without resorting to models beyond effective field theory, possibly with local environmental effects. (orig.)

    The Opera experiment will try to confirm the {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}} oscillations by the appearance of the {nu}{sub {tau}} in a pure {nu}{sub {mu}} beam. Indeed, a neutrino beam almost pure is produced at CERN (CNGS Beam) and sent to the Opera detector. The detector is composed of two muons spectrometers and a target formed by walls of bricks. Each brick is an alternation of lead plates and emulsions. This modular structure allows to reconstruct the kink topology of the {tau} lepton decay with a high spatial resolution. The great challenge of the Opera experiment is to detect the {nu}{sub {tau}} interactions with the less uncertainty. To reduce this uncertainty it is essential to identify with the greatest efficiency any background event not including a tau particle. My work permits to reduce background. My principal contribution concerns the selection development, the reconstruction and the muons identification at low energy. This work is based on the setting of variables related to the deposit energy and the multiple scattering. Previously, only deposit energy was used in the analyses of pion/muon separation. This study allows doubling the muon identification efficiency at low energy. This leads to increase the background events rejection in Opera and to decrease the contamination by 30%. I also studied the nuclear emulsions capacity to identify charged particles through the analysis of a test beam carried out by the Nagoya group. This test contains protons and pions with different energies. My work proves that the European scan system gives comparable results with those obtained by the Japanese scan system. (author)

    The OPERA-3D suite of programs has been enhanced to include 2 additional 3 dimensional finite element based solvers, with complimentary features in the pre- and postprocessing. SOPRANO computes electromagnetic fields at high frequency including displacement current effects. It has 2 modules emdash a deterministic solution at a user defined frequency and an eigenvalue solution for modal analysis. It is suitable for designing microwave structures and cavities found in particle accelerators. SCALA computes electrostatic fields in the presence of space charge from charged particle beams. The user may define the emission characteristics of electrodes or plasma surfaces and compute the resultant space charge limited beams, including the presence of magnetic fields. Typical applications in particle accelerators are electron guns and ion sources. Other enhancements to the suite include additional capabilities in TOSCA and ELEKTRA, the static and dynamic solvers. copyright 1997 American Institute of Physics

  9. Upstream from OPERA: extreme attention to detail

    CERN Bulletin

    2011-01-01

    Two weeks ago, at a seminar held at CERN, the OPERA collaboration revealed their astonishing observation: neutrinos might move faster than light. The finding is currently under scrutiny in the scientific community. While the result downstream at Gran Sasso speaks for itself, upstream at CERN things are no less intriguing, with high-tech GPS systems, novel techniques for accurately measuring the time, and unique ways keeping the initial particle beam stable. Take away one ingredient and the accuracy needed for the final measurement is spoiled.   Underground installations of the CERN Neutrinos to Gran Sasso (CNGS) project. First ingredient: a stable beam CERN produces neutrinos by sending a beam of protons to hit a target. The collisions produce a secondary beam, which mostly consists of pions and kaons that decay in flight within an evacuated tunnel. Their decay products are muons and muon-neutrinos. An absorber stops the pions and kaons that do not decay, while the resulting muons are absorb...

  11. Don Giovanni Goes to Prison: Teaching Opera behind Bars

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pierpaolo Polzonetti

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Teaching opera in prison presents challenges, such as limits imposed on printed and recorded material to study it, or the audio-visual technology in the classroom space, yet, no other experience can be so inspiring and rewarding for everybody involved. This essay focuses on teaching opera, in particular Mozart’s Don Giovanni, to imprisoned students in America. It addresses pedagogical challenges on how to teach opera in prison and advocates for the need to leave the ivory tower of academia and engage in social action. If opera is still perceived as an elitist art form, it is because it is artificially kept that way by being practiced, taught, studied, and promoted only among an exclusive sector of our population.

  14. Opera as Social Showcase: Rituals of “Magic Mirrors” at the Margravial Opera House in Mid-Eighteenth-Century Bayreuth

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vlado Kotnik

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available This article proposes a ritualistic approach to opera in the historical case of the mid-eighteenth-century Margravial Opera House in Bavarian Bayreuth to argue that court opera can be understood as a variety of social showcase. In this view, court opera is a specific form of communication through which opera established the various types of relationship between itself and the social worlds in which, and for which, it was created. By referring to the operatic rituals under the leadership and sponsorship of Wilhelmina of Bayreuth and her husband Frederick, it will be established how the Bayreuth’s ruling couple used opera for several social and political purposes. As both genre and institution, the margravial opera production is interpreted by the analytical models of anthropologists of ritual and theatre, like Victor Turner, Clifford Geertz, Maurice Bloch, Stanley Tambiah, Catherine Bell, employing their ritual theory, especially Turner’s concept of a “hall of magic mirrors”.

    In 1998 by making use of a water Cherenkov detector the Super-Kamiokande Experiment in Japan has measured a deficit of {nu}{sub {tau}} atmospheric neutrinos without observing a corresponding rise in the {nu}{sub e} flux. This phenomenon is understood as neutrino oscillations, a mechanism implying a non vanishing neutrino mass. In 1999 the CHOOZ Experiment has definitely excluded the oscillations {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub e} within atmosphere. The OPERA Experiment aims at evidencing the {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}oscillations through occurrence of {nu}{sub {tau}} and of {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub e} oscillations by occurrence of {nu}{sub e} starting from a muon neutrino beam almost totally clean. Such a beam is actually produced at CERN (CNGS beam) in Switzerland and then directed upon the OPERA detector located 732 km southward under Gran Sasso mountains in Italy. The detector consists of more than 200,000 bricks (what amounts to a total mass of 1,800 tons made up of a nuclear emulsion foils / lead foils sandwich. This module structure allows reconstructing with a high spatial resolution ({delta}{sub {theta}} {approx_equal} 1 mrad and {delta}{sub r} {approx_equal} 1 {mu}m) the kink topology created by the {tau} lepton (issued from charged current interaction of a {nu}{sub {tau}} lepton with a lead nucleus) and its decay products. The work reported in this thesis consists in characterization of the electrons needed in the study of {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}oscillations, with {tau} {yields} e, and the {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub e} oscillations, the {nu}{sub e} interacting through charged currents with a lead nucleus and producing an electron. A reconstruction algorithm of the electromagnetic cascades in nuclear emulsion was developed. This algorithm allows reproducing the longitudinal and transverse profiles used in evaluating the electron energies and their identification as well ({pi}/e separation by mean of a neuron

    2017-07-01

    China's traditional Peking Opera has four standard categories of roles: Sheng, Dan, Jing, and Chou, the singing vibrato of each displaying a different auditory effect. The audio and respiratory signals were recorded for two performers of the Qing Yi role, one of the Jing role, one of the Chou role, one of the Lao Sheng role, one of the Xiao Sheng role, and one of the Lao Dan role. The recordings gained eventually consisted of 24 representative songs from six roles. The rates and extents of vibrato, fundamental frequency, and rib cage signals were analyzed. Two findings were obtained: (1) the classical opera singing vibratos of China and Western countries are acoustically different from each other; and (2) in Peking Opera, the singing vibratos of different roles show significant acoustic differences.

    Brunet, F.

    2014-01-01

    The OPERA experiment, placed 730 km downstream the CERN neutrino beam to Gran Sasso (CNGS) in the LNGS underground laboratory, is designed to measure muon-neutrino to tau-neutrino oscillations in a direct appearance mode. The hybrid apparatus consists of an emulsion/lead target complemented by electronic detectors. Due to the target structure made of thin lead plates, OPERA is able to detect electromagnetic showers, allowing searches for tau electronic decays and for oscillations from muon-neutrino to electron-neutrino. The experimental set-up and associated facilities used to extract data recorded in the emulsion will be described, with the special procedures aimed at locating interaction vertices and detect short decay topologies. OPERA is taking data since 2008. A first nu-tau interaction candidate was already published in 2010. New results with increased statistics will be presented. In particular, an overview of the studies related to electrons will be shown. (author)

  18. Effects of Chinese opera on the reproductions of Ibsen's plays

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Miriam Leung Che LAU

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available As part of a globalized phenomenon, the reproductions of Ibsen’s plays on the Chinese theatrical stage increasingly focus upon the exploration and expansion of new cultural forms, as Patrice Pavis defines interculturalism as “grasping the dialectical of exchanges of civilities between cultures”. However, how do we evaluate the effectiveness of the many “intercultural” productions that surround us today? I attempt to answer this question by comparing two Chinese reproductions of Ibsen’s plays that employ elements of Chinese opera on varying scales. The first one is a total transformation of Hedda Gabler into a Hangzhou yue opera form, Xin Bi Tian Gao (Aspirations Higher than the Sky, 心比天高 in 2006. As part of the yue opera tradition, Hedda Gabler was staged in an all-female cast. The second one is a fragmented insertion of a Peking opera excerpt into the staging of A Doll’s House by the National Experimental Theatre of China in 1998. One of the highlights of the play is a Norwegian actress, who plays Nora, singing and dancing a short Peking opera excerpt, thus replacing the tarantella dance in the original play. Contextualising the multiple perspectives towards interculturalism by Patrice Pavis, Richard Schechner and Rustom Bharucha, I aim to explore how the appropriation of Chinese opera in such performances might strengthen or weaken the reciprocal flows between the source and target cultures in Pavis’s “hourglass model”, and whether the initial attempt of revitalising both Chinese and Western art forms has backfired and misproduced Bertolt Brecht’s alienation effect directed at the contemporary audience.

  19. Social uses of commercial soap operas: a conversation with Miguel Sabido.

    Singhal, A; Obregon, R

    1999-01-01

    This paper presents an interview with Miguel Sabido, a writer-producer-director of theater and soap operas in Mexico concerning the social uses of commercial soap operas. According to Sabido, television soap operas can play multiple roles in educating the public: 1) melodramatic soap operas represent a mediation between good and bad; 2) soap operas allow people to gossip on different characters, their dilemmas, and create a climate for social change, especially if it centers on key social issues; and 3) soap operas provide role models to emulate. Sabido stressed the importance of a theory-based method for producing drama and mentioned how theoreticians Bentley, Bandura, Maclean, and Jung influenced his writing and production of soap operas. According to Sabido, the social uses of commercial television are possible with socially responsible soap operas.

    Full Text Available Soap operas are a cultural phenomenon of recognized importance in Brazilian society. They have come into the atention of investigators since they represent concrete social processes that are not strange to the spectator´s reality. A large variety of social themes have already been discussed in soap operas, characterizing a broad spectrum which covers from daily ordinary events up to controversial situation of rupture, forcing public debate. This investigation at empted to identify and analyze how family arrangements, as well as familial and conjugal daily routine, were portrayed in six soap opera plots exhibited between 2003 and 2008 by Rede Globo network. The data collection was performed by the analysis of the soap operas chapter synopses, and the data was organized and discussed using the classic content analysis technique. The way Brazilian family is portrayed in the weekly TV fiction incorporates new family arrangements, presenting new relationship construction possibilities originated during the last decades, in opposition to the conservative raditions

    The OPERA neutrino experiment has measured the neutrino velocity using the CERN CNGS beam over a baseline of 730 km. The measurement is based on data taken by OPERA in the years 2009, 2010, 2011. An arrival time of CNGS muon neutrinos with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of light in vacuum of (6.5±7.4(stat.){sub −8.0}{sup +8.3}(sys.))ns was measured corresponding to a relative difference of the muon neutrino velocity with respect to the speed of light (v−c)/c=(2.7±3.1(stat.){sub −3.3}{sup +3.4}(sys.))×10{sup −6}. During spring 2012 the CNGS provided during two weeks a short proton bunched beam dedicated to the neutrino velocity measurement. The OPERA neutrino experiment at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory has measured the velocity of neutrinos with slightly modified setup compared to 2011 measurements. These modifications increased the timing accuracy and also fixed previous problems. The arrival time of CNGS muon neutrinos with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of light in vacuum has been found to be in agreement with the previous measurement. This result confirms the revised OPERA result and that indeed the neutrino anticipation announced in September 2011 was due to technical problems.

    This report will describe introduction of validation of OPERA3D code, and validation results that are directly related with PCMI phenomena. OPERA3D was developed for the PCMI analysis and validated using the in-pile measurement data. Fuel centerline temperature and clad strain calculation results shows close expectations with measurement data. Moreover, 3D FEM fuel model of OPERA3D shows slight hour glassing behavior of fuel pellet in contact case. Further optimization will be conducted for future application of OPERA3D code. Nuclear power plant consists of many complicated systems, and one of the important objects of all the systems is maintaining nuclear fuel integrity. However, it is inevitable to experience PCMI (Pellet Cladding Mechanical Interaction) phenomena at current operating reactors and next generation reactors for advanced safety and economics as well. To evaluate PCMI behavior, many studies are on-going to develop 3-dimensional fuel performance evaluation codes. Moreover, these codes are essential to set the safety limits for the best estimated PCMI phenomena aimed for high burnup fuel.

    In the context of the paradoxical results of the OPERA Collaboration, we have proposed a classical mechanics model yielding the statistically measured velocity of a beam higher than the velocity of the particles constituting the beam. Ingredients of our model necessary to obtain this curious result are a non-constant fraction function and the method of the maximum-likelihood estimation.

    New methods for efficient and unambiguous interconnection between electronic counters and target units based on nuclear photographic emulsion films have been developed. The application to the OPERA experiment, that aims at detecting oscillations between mu neutrino and tau neutrino in the CNGS neutrino beam, is reported in this paper. In order to reduce background due to latent tracks collected before installation in the detector, on-site large-scale treatments of the emulsions ("refreshing") have been applied. Changeable Sheet (CSd) packages, each made of a doublet of emulsion films, have been designed, assembled and coupled to the OPERA target units ("ECC bricks"). A device has been built to print X-ray spots for accurate interconnection both within the CSd and between the CSd and the related ECC brick. Sample emulsion films have been extensively scanned with state-of-the-art automated optical microscopes. Efficient track-matching and powerful background rejection have been achieved in tests with electronic...

  10. The OPERA Long Baseline Experiment: Status and First Results

    CERN Document Server

    Duchesneau, Dominique

    2008-01-01

    OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tRacking Apparatus)is an international collaboration between Europe and Asia, aiming to give the first direct proof of tau neutrino appearance in a pure muon neutrino beam, in order to validate the hypothesis for atmospheric neutrino oscillations. The first european long baseline neutrino beam called CNGS is produced at CERN and sent in the direction of the Gran Sasso underground laboratory 730 km away, where the OPERA detector is located. Since 2006 the electronic detector part is fully commissioned and running. Cosmic ray events have been recorded on a regular basis and the first neutrino beam events have been observed in the target elements made of very precise emulsion films and lead sheets during the last run in autumn 2007. This paper reviews the status of the detector, the beam performances, the first results from the neutrino event analysis and the prospects.

  11. Neutrino oscillations make their first appearance in OPERA

    2010-01-01

    1400 metres underground in the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory, the Opera experiment has just observed its first candidate for neutrino oscillation – the phenomenon that confirms that neutrinos have mass. It is the first time that an experiment has observed the direct appearance of the new type of neutrinos produced in the oscillation. Opera uses a dedicated beam produced at CERN’s Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS).   Tracks of first candidate event observed by the OPERA experiment. Neutrinos, abundant in cosmic rays, are involved in several of the nuclear reactions that take place in the Sun, and also in radioactive decays. Numerous as they are, they continue to hold many secrets for scientists. One is the fact that the three types of neutrinos—electron, muon and tau neutrinos—can change into each another. This physical phenomenon, known as neutrino ‘oscillations’, was originally described in an article by Bruno Pontecorvo and Vla...

    2009-01-01

    Within the framework of this diploma thesis the density dependent detection characteristics of the OPERA Precision Tracker are studied at a test set up with two drift tube modules. Measurements of gain, hit eciency, spatial resolution and time{to{distance relation are presented depending on the density, anode voltage and discriminator thresholds. At a constant anode voltage the gain falls with increasing density. Therefore the hit eciency and the spatial resolution decrease with increasing density above 1,70 kg/m 3 . Within the temperature{ uctuations of 6 K inside the LNGS, an uncertainty of the spatial resolution up to 75 m is found. Within these temperature{ uctuations the upper limit for the variation of the drift distance at a drift time of 1200 ns is about 220 m. Both eects are tolerable for the spatial resolution of the OPERA Drift Tubes.

    In this report a potential problem in the data analysis of the OPERA experiment is discussed: the main issue is that the quantity "\\partialt" used in the maximum likelihood procedure is not a "true" parameter of the parent-distribution (called PDF in the apaper) but a shift in the x-axis (time scale). This means that the quantity "\\partialt" has to be considered only as systematic effect these error in not simply deducible from a gaussian distribution as stated.

  14. Particle identification by nuclear emulsions in the OPERA experiment

    2007-01-01

    The OPERA experiment will try to confirm the ν μ →ν τ oscillations by the appearance of the ν τ in a pure ν μ beam. Indeed, a neutrino beam almost pure is produced at CERN (CNGS Beam) and sent to the OPERA detector. The detector is composed of two muons spectrometers and a target formed by walls of bricks. Each brick is an alternation of lead plates and emulsions. This modular structure allows to reconstruct the kink topology of the τ lepton decay with a high spatial resolution. The great challenge of the OPERA experiment is to detect the ν τ interactions with the less uncertainty. To reduce this uncertainty it is essential to identify with the greatest efficiency any background event not including a tau particle. My work permits to reduce background. My principal contribution concerns the selection development, the reconstruction and the muons identification at low energy. This work is based on the setting of variables related to the deposit energy and the multiple scattering. Previously, only deposit energy was used in the analyses of pion/muon separation. This study allows doubling the muon identification efficiency at low energy. This leads to increase the background events rejection in OPERA and to decrease the contamination by 30 pour cent. I also studied the nuclear emulsions capacity to identify charged particles through the analysis of a test beam carried out by the Nagoya group. This test contains protons and pions with different energies. My work proves that the European scan system gives comparable results with those obtained by the Japanese scan system. (Author)

    Lin, Yu-Wei; Williams, Alan E.

    2014-07-01

    This paper examines how audiences experience live opera performance and the behaviours they exhibit during live-streaming of the performance. It aims to contribute to our understanding of how audiences, who increasingly inhabit an environment saturated with digital media, respond to contemporary opera performance. Based on a comparative study of audience experiences and behaviours during a live opera performance and the streamed opera screening, we investigate whether digital mediation affects audience appreciation, and whether streaming live opera means the same thing to an audience as the unmediated performance. We firstly outline the conception, design and performance of a contemporary opera and its simultaneous streaming to nearby digital screens. Then, we report the evaluation of the project as measured by a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods during the rehearsals, the live performance and the screening. As one of the few social studies of contemporary classical music in Britain, our study of opera audience behaviours sheds light on the challenges and opportunities afforded by digital technologies for opera companies. Understanding how audiences appreciate digital operas offers practical advice on how theatres and opera companies could respond to new forms of digital activities.

  2. Identification and localization of neutrino events in the OPERA detector

    2004-07-01

    The OPERA experiment is designed for the appearance search of ν μ → ν τ oscillations in the parameters indicated by the atmospheric neutrino anomaly. To prove the appearance of ν τ at 732 km from the CERN, an hybrid detector is under construction at the Gran Sasso laboratory. The target, composed by bricks made of lead plates and emulsion sheets, allows the direct observation of the τ lepton produced in ν τ charged current interactions. The tracking, the localization of neutrino events in the target and the muon identification are allowed by trackers located inside the target (scintillators) and in the spectrometer following the target (RPC). The development of algorithms, based on electronic detectors, is necessary to identify the neutrino interaction and to locate the bricks where the interaction occurred. A classification of neutrino events is performed using the identification of the muon produced in ν μ CC and ν τ CC with τ → μ decay. This classification is optimised with tracking informations and also with topological and calorimetric parameters which describe the nature of the interaction (quasi-elastic, deep inelastic); the algorithm of the localization of neutrino event is performed for each category. A tridimensional brick probability map is built and can be exploited to implement sophisticated extraction brick strategies. To conclude, a feasibility study of a test beam experiment OPERETTE is presented. The project was to install a similar OPERA detector in the COMPASS neutrino beam, in the CERN North Area. It was a good opportunity to prepare OPERA for the scanning emulsion films with neutrino events and to test the analysis procedures. (author)

    This book focuses on opera house acoustics based on subjective preference theory; it targets researchers in acoustics and vision who are working in physics, psychology, and brain physiology. This book helps readers to understand any subjective attributes in relation to objective parameters based on the powerful and workable model of the auditory system. It is reconfirmed here that the well-known Helmholtz theory, which was based on a peripheral model of the auditory system, may not well describe pitch, timbre, and duration as well as the spatial sensations described in this book, nor overall responses such as subjective preference of sound fields and the annoyance of environmental noise.

  5. Electronics design of the RPC system for the OPERA muon

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Acquafredda, R.; Ambrosio, M.; Consiglio, L.

    2004-01-01

    The present document describes the front-end electronics of the RPC system that instruments the magnet muon spectrometer of the OPERA experiment. The main task of the OPERA spectrometer is to provide particle tracking information for muon identification and simplify the matching between the Precision Trackers. As no trigger has been foreseen for the experiment, the spectrometer electronics must be self-triggered with single-plane readout capability. Moreover, precision time information must be added within each event frame for off-line reconstruction. The read-out electronics is made of three different stages: the Front-End Boards (FEBs) system, the Controller Boards (CBs) system and Trigger Boards (TBs) system. The FEB system provides discrimination of the strip incoming signals; a FAST-OR output of the input signals is also available for trigger plane signal generation. FEB signals are required by the CB system that provides the zero suppression and manages the communication to the DAQ and Slow Control. A Trigger Board allows to operate in both self-trigger mode (the FEB's FAST-OR signal starts the plane acquisition) or in external-trigger mode (different conditions can be set on the FAST-OR signals generated from different planes)

    2008-01-01

    The design of the OPERA experiment was also motivated and justified by the revival of nuclear emulsion handling and scanning in a modem, automatic fashion, as it took previously place, although at a smaller scale, for the CHORUS experiment. Nuclear emulsions are still the only detector to allow a very detailed topological study of an interaction/decay vertex at the sub-micrometer level. They are most suitable in experiments where topology is a non-ambiguous signature of a certain class of events. This is for instance the case of neutrino oscillation detection and measurement by the study of a tau-appearance signal. The design and performance of the two different scanning systems used in OPERA (ESS and S-UTS) are discussed. Their unique features in terms of speed, precision, background suppression, particle identification, and kinematical reconstruction are shown in close connection with the technical details that make them possible. Unequalled precision, almost vanishing background, and a wealth of informati...

    Due to the large number of historical opera houses in Italy, many theatres have been renovated in the past, but still more will undergo major restoration in the near future. Unfortunately in this context, the quality and protection of acoustics is rarely considered as an issue of its own. As a consequence, the renovations are hardly ever accompanied by proper scientific and technical support. In this paper, the acoustical impact of works inside the Teatro Municipale "R.Valli" in Reggio Emilia, including the restoration of the main hall and the construction of a new acoustic shell, will be dealt with. Surveys were held in the theatre before renovation and were repeated with identical procedure and instruments after its completion. By means of a comparative analysis of the architectural project and of acoustical data, the impact of major changes in the theatre can be predicted. It is shown that this approach can help in drafting an operational scheme for safeguarding the acoustics of historical opera houses.

    Full Text Available The opera company of Adolfo Bracale visited Colombia several times between 1922 and 1933. This opera company made contributions to the musical environment of that period. It brought opera singers, orchestral members and conductors internationally recognized at the time, and incorporated repertoire not heard before in Colombia. The musical environment of the country was also enriched by the mobilization of a series of cultural, social and commercial factors that had to do with these opera seasons. The last performance of the Bracale opera company took place in Medellín in 1933, some months before it went bankrupt. Because of this, some of its musicians, including Bracale, decided to stay in the country, and thus they contributed to the formation of musicians and orchestras that made part of the musical culture of the moment and of generations to come.

    Full Text Available Il saggio, dopo essersi soffermato sulla poetica del silenzio del drammaturgo belga, si propone di approfondire l’analisi del dialogo nell’opera del primo Maeterlinck. Al rifiuto della mimesi classica corrisponde un discorso che ricalca le dinamiche dell’inconscio per arricchirsi di un ulteriore livello di lettura che trascende la comunicazione superficiale necessitata dalla situazione, assumendo un significato universale. Si rileva come la parola recuperi una dimensione prima e si avvalga del non-detto per esprimere ciò che l’insufficienza del linguaggio non può carpire. Ne deriva un dialogo spersonalizzato e monologico, pregno di ripetizioni ed echi, logicamente sconnesso e frammentario, punteggiato da esclamazioni e sospensioni che ne evidenziano l’inquietudine e la di dinamismo.

    2010-01-01

    The partiturogram is a tool that was defined in the 1990s by Franco Fussi. It aims to display all the music notes of an opera role as a histogram. Several parameters are then calculated in order to define the vocal profile of the role, as well as help the singer choose from various options. We have decided to use this tool to study Norma and Sonnambula, two roles which were specifically written for the same singer described as a dramatic soprano. Over time, both roles have been allocated to radically different voices. The partiturogram confirms the similarity of the vocal types of both roles, but gives no explanation as to the differences in the casting decisions. We have therefore established its limits, and we have submitted a study including new parameters in order to refine the characterization of roles.

The main question is this: which ideas and values are dominant and taken for granted in Faseleha, and how do audiences (here, women of Elam interpret and decode the preferred reading of the text and which discourses are available for them and inform them in this process. In the first section, we have used semiology to to illuminate the preferred reading of the text and, in the second section, we have studied women readings by way of focused group interview. The findings showed that the audiences read Faseleha very differently and actively, they are not passive consumers.

  16. Characterization of different options of trackers in OPERA detector

    Neutrinos were postulated by Pauli during the thirties. These spin-half and massless particles helped to solve the β decay problems. Their study started in the fifties and work is still going on nowadays. This study was lengthy due the difficulty to detect neutrinos and also to a 'strange' phenomenon: we always detect less neutrinos than expected for solar and atmospheric neutrinos. This phenomenon can be explained by oscillation between massive neutrino states. The OPERA project is intended to directly proved this oscillation. To this aim, a ν μ beam is produced at CERN and pointed to Gran-Sasso (Italy), 732 km away. The detector is optimised to reveal the tau neutrino coming from ν μ → ν τ oscillation. This detector of 30 meters length with 2,000 tonnes of target will be built with more than 200,000 bricks of lead and emulsion. Taus are observed after scanning of the emulsions. The bricks must be localized into the wall and this localization is possible with a tracker located downstream of each target wall. The present work was devoted to the determination of the best tracker for OPERA. Three options were studied and a tracker made of plastic scintillator slabs has been chosen. It allows obtaining an efficiency of the localization of the vertex wall of around 80% and an efficiency of the localization of the brick inside the wall of around 80%. As photo detector we have studies HPD with a self-triggerable readout. HPDs have displayed an excellent resolution, a cross talk lower than 2% and a uniformity higher then 98%. A DAQ based on Ethernet was proposed and accepted by the collaboration. In this option, each photon detector is node of the network and can be accessed in a web browser. A prototype with plastic oscillator, a HPD with an self triggerable readout and a DAQ based on Ethernet were built and validated during beam tests. (author)

  17. Alignment of the drift tube detector at the neutrino oscillation experiment OPERA; Alignment des Driftroehrendetektors am Neutrino-Oszillationsexperiment OPERA

    The present thesis was composed during the course of the OPERA experiment, which aims to give a direct evidence for neutrino oscillations in the channel {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}. The OPERA detector is designed to observe the appearance of tau neutrinos in an originally pure muon neutrino beam, the CNGS beam. As important part of the detector the precision tracker (PT), a drift tube detector, consists of 9504 drift tubes in 198 modules. In this thesis, several parts of the slow control of the PT are developed and implemented to ensure operation during data taking over several years. The main part is the geometric calibration, the alignment of the detector. The alignment procedure contains both hardware and software parts, the software methods are developed and applied. Using straight particle tracks, the detector components are geometrically corrected. A special challenge for the alignment for the PT is the fact that at this kind of low-rate experiment only a small number of particle tracks is available. With software-based corrections of the module rotation, a systematic error of 0.2 mrad has been attained, for corrections of translation, a systematic error of 32 {mu}m is reached. For the alignment between two adjacent PT walls, the statistical error is less than 8 {mu}m. All results of the position monitoring system are considered. All developed methods are tested with Monte Carlo simulations. The detector requirements ({Delta}p/p {<=} 0.25 below 25 GeV) are met. The analysis of the momentum measurement for high energies above 25 GeV demonstrates the resulting improvement. The mean momentum is falling significantly using the new alignment values. The significance of the detector alignment becomes most evident in the analysis of cosmic particles. The muon charge ratio R{sub {mu}} is expected not to be angular dependent. The {chi}{sup 2} probability of the measured distribution improves up to 58%. The muon charge ratio was also investigated in

    Full Text Available Soap operas are a popular culture phenomenon around the globe, including the Republic of Armenia (Armenia hereafter, a small ancient and changing society in post-Soviet era. A survey of 292 college students from Yerevan, the capital, as well as the provinces of Armenia was conducted in Yerevan. Employing uses and gratifications theory, this study investigated the students’ reported motives in viewing soap operas in relations to their demographics. The survey yielded three motives for viewing soap operas: to pass time, for pleasure, and for stimulation. Analysis showed that provincial students were more likely to watch soap operas to pass time. The study can serve as a foundation for future studies about media use in Armenia and possibly other post-Soviet societies.

    Full Text Available The Opera of the National Theater in Belgrade was founded in 1920, but it is well known that opera performances were held long before its official opening. Despite the fact that this is the sole opera house in Belgrade (and one of the only two in Serbia, as well as the fact that it did not face any strong audience fluctuation, it is unusual that no one ever tried to investigate and profile its audience. During the last decades we were witnessing the popularization of the opera via various medias, as well as development and extention of the music industry, which surely changed its social status. The aim of the investigation that is going to be presented is to discover if this social life of opera changed its audience and does it still consists of - according to stereotypes - elderly, high educated individuals of certain professions and high material standards, i.e. at which level the opera is present in the private and public sphere of their lives.

  7. OPERA-a human performance database under simulated emergencies of nuclear power plants

    In complex systems such as the nuclear and chemical industry, the importance of human performance related problems is well recognized. Thus a lot of effort has been spent on this area, and one of the main streams for unraveling human performance related problems is the execution of HRA. Unfortunately a lack of prerequisite information has been pointed out as the most critical problem in conducting HRA. From this necessity, OPERA database that can provide operators' performance data obtained under simulated emergencies has been developed. In this study, typical operators' performance data that are available from OPERA database are briefly explained. After that, in order to ensure the appropriateness of OPERA database, operators' performance data from OPERA database are compared with those of other studies and real events. As a result, it is believed that operators' performance data of OPERA database are fairly comparable to those of other studies and real events. Therefore it is meaningful to expect that OPERA database can be used as a serviceable data source for scrutinizing human performance related problems including HRA

  8. A scale value for the balance between stage and pit and inside an historical opera house

    2004-05-01

    Despite its recognized importance, the balance between the singer and the orchestra inside an opera house has received minor attention in the past. In fact, after the fundamental work of Meyer [J. Meyer, ``Some problems of opera house acoustics,'' Proceedings of 12th I.C.A., Vancouver, 1986, pp. 13-18], who explained why the solo singing voice can compete with the orchestra, only partial results were reported on this perceived attribute. In this work a reference scale to assess the balance inside an historical opera house is achieved by means of listening tests inside a controlled room. Two scaling experiments were performed based on the acoustical data measured inside an historical opera house, the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara, Italy. By doing so all of the relevant acoustical characteristics of a typical Italian-style opera house could be exactly reproduced. Acceptable values do not differ much in the stalls and in the boxes and are within 2 dB(A) to +2.3 dB(A). The transfer of the findings to other types of opera houses is discussed, too.

  9. Possible Origin Of The Neutrino Speed Anomaly Reported By OPERA

    CERN Document Server

    Dado, Shlomo

    2011-01-01

    Recently the OPERA collaboration reported a measurement of a superluminal speed of muon neutrinos travelling through the Earth's crust between their production site at CERN and their detection site under Gran Sasso, ~730 km away. The measurement was based on the assumption that the pulse shape of the neutrinos from the decay of parent mesons produced in proton-target collisions is the same as that of the incident protons. Here we argue that the effective column density of the target along the beam direction decreases with time during the 10.5 microseconds duration of the proton pulse. This is because of the thermal expansion and expulsion of target material along the beam by the energy-momentum deposition during the 10.5 microseconds pulse. The progresive reduction in the effective column density during the pulse decreases the neutrino production rate per incident proton. It could have advanced the mean production time of the detected neutrinos relative to that calculated from the proton pulse-shape, by an am...

    The OPERA experiment was designed to study νμ→ντ oscillations in the appearance mode in the CERN to Gran Sasso Neutrino beam (CNGS). In this Letter, we report the final analysis of the full data sample collected between 2008 and 2012, corresponding to 17.97×1019 protons on target. Selection criteria looser than in previous analyses have produced ten ντ candidate events, thus reducing the statistical uncertainty in the measurement of the oscillation parameters and of ντ properties. A multivariate approach for event identification has been applied to the candidate events and the discovery of ντ appearance is confirmed with an improved significance level of 6.1σ. |Δm322| has been measured, in appearance mode, with an accuracy of 20%. The measurement of the ντ charged-current cross section, for the first time with a negligible contamination from ν¯τ, and the first direct evidence for the ντ lepton number are also reported.

    The greatest error in the history of science is the misinterpretation of the Michelson-Morley Experiment. The speed of light was measured to travel at the same speed in all three directions (x, y, z axis) in ones own inertial reference system; however, c will always be measured as having an absolute different speed in all other inertial frames at different energy levels. Time slows down due to motion or a gravity field. Time is the rate of physical process. Speed = Distance/Time. If the time changes the distance must change. Therefore, BOTH mirrors must move towards the center of the interferometer and space must contract in all-three-directions; C-Space. Gravity is a C-Space condition, and is the cause of redshift in our universe-not motion. The universe is not expanding. OPERA results are directly indicated; at the surface of earth, the strength of the gravity field is at maximum-below the earth's surface, time and space is less distorted, C-Space; therefore, c is faster. Newtonian mechanics dictate that a spherical shell of matter at greater radii, with uniform density, produces no net force on an observer located centrally. An observer located on the sphere's surface, like our Earth's or a large sphere, like one located in a remote galaxy, will construct a picture centered on himself to be identical to the one centered inside the spherical shell of mass. Both observers will view the incoming radiation, emitted by the other observer, as redshifted, because they lay on each others radial line. The Universe is static and very old.

    Full Text Available Opera Zora D., composed by Isidora Žebeljan during 2002 and 2003, and which was premiered in Amsterdam in June 2003, is the first Serbian opera that had a world premiere abroad. It is also the first Serbian opera that has been staged outside Serbia since 1935, after being acclaimed at a competition organized by the Genesis Foundation from London. Isidora Žebeljan was commissioned (granted financial backing to compose a complete opera with a secured stage realization. The Dutch Chamber Opera (Opera studio Nederland and the Viennese Chamber Opera (Wiener Kammeroper were the co-producers of the first production. The opera was directed by David Pountney, the renowned opera director, while an international team of young singers and celebrated artists assisted the co-production. The opera was played three times in Amsterdam. Winfried Maczewski conducted the Amsterdam Nieuw Ensemble whereas Daniel Hoyem Cavazza conducted the Wiener Kammeroper on twelve performances. The Viennese premier of Zora D. opened the season of celebrations, thus marking the 50th anniversary of the Wiener Kammeroper. The libretto, based on the script for a TV film by Dušan Ristić, was co-written by Isidora Žebeljan, Milica Žebeljan and Borislav Čičovački. Speaking of genre, the libretto represents a mélange of thriller, melodrama and mystery, with elements of fiction. The opera consists of the prologue and seven scenes. The story, set in the present-day Belgrade, also goes back to the 1930’s and the periods interweave. The opera was written for four vocalists: the soprano, the baritone, and two mezzo-sopranos. The chamber orchestra has fifteen musicians. The story: One summer day in 1935, Belgrade poetess Zora Dulijan mysteriously disappears. Sixty years later, Mina, an ordinary girl from Belgrade, quite unexpectedly becomes part of an incredible story, which gradually unravels as time goes by.

    Radioactive waste in the Netherlands is collected, treated and stored by COVRA (Centrale Organisatie Voor Radioactief Afval) in the interim storage facility for at least 100 a. After this period of long-term storage, geological disposal is foreseen. The policy is based on a step-wise decision process in which all decisions are taken to ensure safe disposal in a repository, but without excluding unforeseen alternative solutions that might develop in the future. OPERA is the Dutch acronym for research program into geological disposal of radioactive waste. It started in 2011 and is running for five years. The OPERA Research plan is developed by NRG in close collaboration with COVRA. Radioactive waste disposal in the Netherlands is at an early, conceptual phase. The aim of Opera is to develop a first preliminary safety case to structure the research necessary for the eventual deployment of a repository in the Netherlands. The OPERA research program aims at a close cooperation with the Belgian research program on radioactive waste disposal. The result of OPERA will be to detail a first roadmap for the long-term research on geological disposal of radioactive waste in the Netherlands, based initially on a re-evaluation of existing safety and feasibility studies conducted more than ten years ago, making use of present international and, wherever possible, national knowledge. This will be done by developing initial and conditional safety cases for generic GDFs in Zechstein rock salt and Boom Clay formations in the Netherlands. The goal in OPERA is to develop initial safety cases that are intended to mark the start of the research development process and to iterate these as knowledge grows to new developed insights. The safety case is conditional since plausible assumptions must later be confirmed in a safety case e.g. for site selection.

    Full Text Available Opera has a famous history and even the present-day repertoire in opera houses mostly consists of classical and well-known works. Marketers are trying to find new ways that would enable opera lovers all over the world to enjoy top quality performances. One of the most successful models is real-time transmissions of operas to geographically remote cinemas. Cinemas from all around the world participate in the project. In this paper, the authors analyze the spectators´ profile and point out differences between North America and the Czech Republic, focusing on transmissions of performances by the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The authors submit a detailed analysis of the socio-demographic characteristics of the spectators and the attendance frequency. Special attention is paid to the marketing profile of Czech spectators, based on primary data gathered in the research. The paper is a combination of research report and business case study. The study reveals that female visitors prevail. Elderly people are also represented in high percentages. The spectators are characterized by refined taste in their lifestyles and familiarity with modern technology.

    Scaffolding, the problem of ordering and orienting contigs, typically using paired-end reads, is a crucial step in the assembly of high-quality draft genomes. Even as sequencing technologies and mate-pair protocols have improved significantly, scaffolding programs still rely on heuristics, with no guarantees on the quality of the solution. In this work, we explored the feasibility of an exact solution for scaffolding and present a first tractable solution for this problem (Opera). We also describe a graph contraction procedure that allows the solution to scale to large scaffolding problems and demonstrate this by scaffolding several large real and synthetic datasets. In comparisons with existing scaffolders, Opera simultaneously produced longer and more accurate scaffolds demonstrating the utility of an exact approach. Opera also incorporates an exact quadratic programming formulation to precisely compute gap sizes (Availability: http://sourceforge.net/projects/operasf/ ).

    Full Text Available The duet and its particular morphology are essential for understanding the dramatic mechanisms of nineteenth-century Italian opera. They are amongst those essential knowledges that every music teacher and student (at secondary school and university level must possess. This paper stands as a discovery journey into one of the fundamental dramatic-musical devices of ninetheenth-century opera duet, the so called ‘solita forma’. It is explored chronologically and in its various forms by examining some exemplary pieces, from Rossini’s Tancredi (1813 to Verdi’s Aida (1871. This analysis can also be of value as a listening didactic unit.

    Soap operas have their roots in 18th century English romance novels. These evolved into serialized radio dramas. In their current form, they were developed primarily to attract large audiences in order to sell consumer products. Hence the name soap which refers to the soap manufacturers who commonly advertise on such programs. In the world of soap operas there are 2 kinds. Those that function primarily to entertain and sell consumer products, and those that primarily entertain, but infuse positive social messages. The former are found everywhere, but are the only kind in America. The latter are found exclusively in developing countries. American soap operas have conveyed pro-social messages in the past, but they differ fundamentally from pro-development soap operas in their theoretical foundations. American soap operas are created by people who want to sell consumer goods. Development soap operas are created by people who want to convey pro-social messages that will aid their country's development. Both must be popular in order to be successful, but the former lack moral coherency, are unrealistic, erode values, and are created through a process of a theoretical development; while the latter have moral coherency, are realistic, promote values, and are created through a process of theoretical development. The 1st pro-development soap opera was Ven Conmigo (Come With Me) and was produced in Mexico between 1975-76. Its primary purpose was to increase adult literacy. During the year it ran, applicants at adult literacy centers rose by 600,000 or 63% compared to 7% the year before, and 2% the year after. The 2nd pro-development soap opera was Acompaname (Accompany Me) and it primary purpose was to promote family planning. It ran from 1977-78 and during that time the number of family planning adopters rose by 560,000 and contraceptive sale sin Mexico rose sharply. The question of what are pro-social messages and who should control them must be answered by each country in

    This paper first gives a short introduction on OPERA, the current Dutch five-year research programme on disposal of radioactive waste. It then zooms in on OPERA WP (Work Package) 2 Safety Case - the OSCAR project, and presents (preliminary) results on the structure of the OPERA safety case, the subject of safety statements, and the OPERA safety assessment methodology. The structure of the initial long-term, post-closure safety case for a disposal facility for radioactive waste in Boom Clay in the Netherlands is being developed in the OSCAR project. Hereto a selection of relevant national and international efforts concerning the set-up of a safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste (safety case structure, safety assessment methodology, FEP database) has been reviewed considering the objectives and outlines of the OPERA programme described in the OPERA research plan. Not surprisingly, it turned out that the guidelines and databases of the IAEA and NEA developed by the international community pretty well covered all aspects of nationally developed safety cases. Although in OPERA only 'initial and conditional' safety cases (for disposal in low permeable clay and rock salt) will be developed, the programme objective is detailing a first road-map for the long-term research on geological disposal of radioactive waste in the Netherlands. The safety case being developed will serve as a basis for the further development of the subsequent stages of the Dutch radioactive waste disposal programme. The focus of OSCAR is, therefore, to develop and propose a 'future proof' structure for the safety case, drawing on the NEA and IAEA/PRISM methodologies. The OPERA safety case structure being developed will encompass all relevant aspects, or components, of a modern safety case and will link the different components in a practical and transparent way. It will assist in steering the flow of information generated within the different OPERA and as such provide a structured

    2011-01-01

    We offer a preliminary exploration of the two sides of the challenge provided by the recent OPERA data on superluminal neutrinos. On one side we stress that some aspects of this result are puzzling even from the perspective of the wild quantum-gravity literature, where arguments in favor of the possibility of superluminal propagation have been presented, but not considering the possibility of such a sizeable effect for neutrinos of such low energies. We feel this must encourage particularly severe scrutiny of the OPERA result. On the other side, we notice that the OPERA result is reasonably consistent with $\\mu$-neutrino-speed data previously obtained at FERMILAB, reported in papers of 2007 and 1979. And it is intriguing that these FERMILAB79 and FERMILAB07 results, when combined with the new OPERA result, in principle provide a window on $\\mu$-neutrino speeds at different energies broad enough to compare alternative phenomenological models. We test the discriminating power of such an approach by using as ill...

  16. The Opera Instrument: An Advanced Curation Development for Mars Sample Return Organic Contamination Monitoring

    2018-01-01

    Mars Sample Return (MSR) requires strict organic contamination control (CC) and contamination knowledge (CK) as outlined by the Mars 2020 Organic Contamination Panel (OCP). This includes a need to monitor surficial organic contamination to a ng/sq. cm sensitivity level. Archiving and maintaining this degree of surface cleanliness may be difficult but has been achieved. MSR's CK effort will be very important because all returned samples will be studied thoroughly and in minute detail. Consequently, accurate CK must be collected and characterized to best interpret scientific results from the returned samples. The CK data are not only required to make accurate measurements and interpretations for carbon-depleted martian samples, but also to strengthen the validity of science investigations performed on the samples. The Opera instrument prototype is intended to fulfill a CC/CK role in the assembly, cleaning, and overall contamination history of hardware used in the MSR effort, from initial hardware assembly through post-flight sample curation. Opera is intended to monitor particulate and organic contamination using quartz crystal microbalances (QCMs), in a self-contained portable package that is cleanroom-compliant. The Opera prototype is in initial development capable of approximately 100 ng/sq. cm organic contamination sensitivity, with additional development planned to achieve 1 ng/sq. cm. The Opera prototype was funded by the 2017 NASA Johnson Space Center Innovation Charge Account (ICA), which provides funding for small, short-term projects.

  5. Event classification with the electronic detectors of the OPERA experiment using neural networks

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hierholzer, Martin C.

    2012-02-01

    The OPERA experiment searches for ν μ ν τ oscillations in appearance mode. It uses the emulsion cloud chamber (ECC) technique for a high spatial resolution combined with on-line components for event localisation and muon identification. The analysis of events in an ECC detector takes considerable time, especially in case of ν τ /ν e candidate events. A ranking of events by a probability for being a ν τ /ν e event can speed up the analysis of the OPERA experiment. An algorithm for such an event ranking based on a classification-type neural network is presented in this thesis. Almost all candidate events can be found within the first 30% of the analysed events if the described ranking is applied. This event ranking is currently applied for testing purposes by the OPERA collaboration, a decision on a full application for the whole analysis is pending. A similar neural network is used for discrimination between neutral and charged current events. This is used to observe neutrino oscillations in disappearance mode with the on-line components of the OPERA detector by measuring the energy dependence of the fraction of neutral current interactions. The confidence level of the observed oscillation effect is 87%. Assuming full mixing, the mass splitting has been determined to vertical stroke Δm 2 32 vertical stroke =2.8 -1.7 +1.4 .10 -3 eV 2 .

    Opera and chant singers learn to effectively use aerodynamic components by breathing exercises during their education. Aerodynamic components, including subglottic air pressure and airflow, deteriorate in voice disorders. This study aimed to evaluate the changes in aerodynamic parameters and supraglottic structures of men and women with different vocal registers who are in an opera and chant education program. Vocal acoustic characteristics, aerodynamic components, and supraglottic structures were evaluated in 40 opera and chant art branch students. The majority of female students were sopranos, and the male students were baritone or tenor vocalists. The acoustic analyses revealed that the mean fundamental frequency was 152.33 Hz in the males and 218.77 Hz in the females. The estimated mean subglottal pressures were similar in females (14.99 cmH 2 O) and in males (14.48 cmH 2 O). Estimated mean airflow rates were also similar in both groups. The supraglottic structure compression analyses revealed partial anterior-posterior compressions in 2 tenors and 2 sopranos, and false vocal fold compression in 2 sopranos. Opera music is sung in high-pitched sounds. Attempts to sing high-pitched notes and frequently using register transitions overstrain the vocal structures. This intense muscular effort eventually traumatizes the vocal structures and causes supraglottic activity. Copyright © 2017 The Voice Foundation. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available The present paper focuses on the issue of translating operatic libretti in the form of surtitles. This is a very specific type of translation, and it becomes even more challenging when operatic productions for which surtitles are created are modernised. In such cases the application of skopos theory proves to be the most useful and effective, even though some of its premises may be regarded as controversial. The data for the present study come from the most reputable opera houses, for example the Metropolitan Opera House or Royal Opera House, as they are known for providing their audiences with high-quality libretti translations.

  10. Are OPERA neutrinos faster than light because of non-inertial reference frames?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Germanà, C.

    2012-02-01

    Context. Recent results from the OPERA experiment reported a neutrino beam traveling faster than light. The challenging experiment measured the neutrino time of flight (TOF) over a baseline from the CERN to the Gran Sasso site, concluding that the neutrino beam arrives ~60 ns earlier than a light ray would do. Because the result, if confirmed, has an enormous impact on science, it might be worth double-checking the time definitions with respect to the non-inertial system in which the neutrino travel time was measured. An observer with a clock measuring the proper time τ free of non-inertial effects is the one located at the solar system barycenter (SSB). Aims: Potential problems in the OPERA data analysis connected with the definition of the reference frame and time synchronization are emphasized. We aim to investigate the synchronization of non-inertial clocks on Earth by relating this time to the proper time of an inertial observer at SSB. Methods: The Tempo2 software was used to time-stamp events observed on the geoid with respect to the SSB inertial observer time. Results: Neutrino results from OPERA might carry the fingerprint of non-inertial effects because they are timed by terrestrial clocks. The CERN-Gran Sasso clock synchronization is accomplished by applying corrections that depend on special and general relativistic time dilation effects at the clocks, depending on the position of the clocks in the solar system gravitational well. As a consequence, TOF distributions are centered on values shorter by tens of nanoseconds than expected, integrating over a period from April to December, longer if otherwise. It is worth remarking that the OPERA runs have always been carried out from April/May to November. Conclusions: If the analysis by Tempo2 holds for the OPERA experiment, the excellent measurement by the OPERA collaboration will turn into a proof of the general relativity theory in a weak field approximation. The analysis presented here is falsifiable

    We present an overview of the data acquisition system (DAQ) and event building of OPERA. OPERA is a long baseline neutrino experiment with a high modularity detector and low event rate. To deal with these features a distributed DAQ system base on Ethernet standards for the data transfer has been chosen. A distributed GPS clock signal is used for synchronizations and time stamp of the data. This architecture allows very modular and flexible event building based on a software trigger strategy. We also present its specific application to the spectrometer sub-detector where RPC trackers are installed. Self-triggerability is a dedicated feature to be also sensitive to out-of-spill events and to possibly allow data taking before the official start of the experiment

    In this paper we present a real-time interactive system for making facial makeup of Peking Opera. First, we analyze the process of drawing facial makeup and characteristics of the patterns used in it, and then construct a SVG pattern bank based on local features like eye, nose, mouth, etc. Next, we pick up some SVG patterns from the pattern bank and composed them to make a new facial makeup. We offer a vector-based free form deformation (FFD) tool to edit patterns and, based on editing, our system creates automatically texture maps for a template head model. Finally, the facial makeup is rendered on the 3D head model in real time. Our system offers flexibility in designing and synthesizing various 3D facial makeup. Potential applications of the system include decoration design, digital museum exhibition and education of Peking Opera.

    The OPERA neutrino oscillation experiment is based on the use of the Emulsion Cloud Chamber (ECC). In the OPERA ECC, nuclear emulsion films acting as very high precision tracking detectors are interleaved with lead plates providing a massive target for neutrino interactions. We report on studies related to the effects occurring from the contact between emulsion and lead. A low radioactivity lead is required in order to minimize the number of background tracks in emulsions and to achieve the required performance in the reconstruction of neutrino events. It was observed that adding other chemical elements to the lead, in order to improve the mechanical properties, may significantly increase the level of radioactivity on the emulsions. A detailed study was made in order to choose a lead alloy with good mechanical properties and an appropriate packing technique so as to have a low enough effective radioactivity.

  17. Kinematical analysis with the Emulsion Cloud Chamber in the OPERA experiment

    2010-01-01

    The OPERA experiment aims at measuring for the first time neutrino oscil- lation in appearance mode through the detection of ni-tau in an almost pure niμ beam produced at CERN SPS (CNGS), 730 km far from the detector. The ni-tau appearance signal is identified through the measurement of the decay daughter particles of the " lepton produced in CC ni-tau interactions. Since the short-lived " particle has, at the energy of the beam, an average decay length shorter than a 1 mm, a micrometric detection resolution is needed. The OPERA appara- tus is hybrid, using nuclear emulsion as high precision tracker and electronic detectors for the time stamp, event localization in the target and muon recon- struction. The Emulsion Cloud Chamber technique fulfils the requirement of a microscopic resolution together with a large target mass. The kinematical analysis allowed by this technique is described.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims at discussing some images constituted as erotic on Brazilian television. The Brazilian soap operas Gabriela (Rede Globo, 1975, and Pantanal (Rede Manchete, 1990, and their main characters, Gabriela and Juma, will be analyzed in detail. The Veja Magazine had a most influent part in constituting such “erotic” subjects through the divulging and commenting of positive, seductive attributes on the bodies of the eroticized actresses. Gabriela and Juma are important characters because they support the stereotypes of a Brazilian sensuality and the strong mundane aspects, such as sex-appeal and dark bodies. The text explores the Brazilian television production (soap operas in order to map the images which have contributed to build the subjectively Brazilian eroticism.

    2011-01-01

    The atmospheric muon charge ratio, defined as the number of positive over negative charged muons, is an interesting quantity for the study of high energy hadronic interactions in atmosphere and the nature of the primary cosmic rays. The measurement of the charge ratio in the TeV muon energy range allows to study the hadronic interactions in kinematic regions not yet explored at accelerators. The OPERA experiment is a hybrid electronic detector/emulsion apparatus, located in the undergroun...

    The OPERA detector at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS) was used to measure the cosmic ray muon charge ratio R μ =N μ + /N μ − in the TeV energy region. R μ is shown as a function of the “vertical surface energy” E μ cosθ. A fit to a simplified model of muon production in atmosphere allowed the determination of the pion and kaon charge ratios weighted by the cosmic ray energy spectrum.

  3. Event classification with the electronic detectors of the OPERA experiment using neural networks

    2012-02-15

    The OPERA experiment searches for {nu}{sub {mu}} <-> {nu}{sub {tau}} oscillations in appearance mode. It uses the emulsion cloud chamber (ECC) technique for a high spatial resolution combined with on-line components for event localisation and muon identification. The analysis of events in an ECC detector takes considerable time, especially in case of {nu}{sub {tau}}/{nu}{sub e} candidate events. A ranking of events by a probability for being a {nu}{sub {tau}}/{nu}{sub e} event can speed up the analysis of the OPERA experiment. An algorithm for such an event ranking based on a classification-type neural network is presented in this thesis. Almost all candidate events can be found within the first 30% of the analysed events if the described ranking is applied. This event ranking is currently applied for testing purposes by the OPERA collaboration, a decision on a full application for the whole analysis is pending. A similar neural network is used for discrimination between neutral and charged current events. This is used to observe neutrino oscillations in disappearance mode with the on-line components of the OPERA detector by measuring the energy dependence of the fraction of neutral current interactions. The confidence level of the observed oscillation effect is 87%. Assuming full mixing, the mass splitting has been determined to vertical stroke {delta}m{sup 2}{sub 32} vertical stroke =2.8{sub -1.7}{sup +1.4}.10{sup -3}eV{sup 2}.

    An experiment was conducted comparing two subject groups, each comprised of eight professional singers specializing in a genre of classical music: early music or grand opera. Electroglottography was used to consider vocal characteristics idiomatic to each genre. Whilst there are clear differences in contact quotient between subjects, particularly when relationships between fundamental frequency (f0) and contact quotient (Qx) are considered, there is no apparent link between contact quotient behaviour and performance specialism based on the results of this sample.

    Following Super Kamiokande and K2K experiments, Opera (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tracking Apparatus), aims to confirm neutrino oscillation in the atmospheric sector. Taking advantage of a technique already employed in Chorus and in Donut, the Emulsion Cloud Chamber (ECC), Opera will be able to observe the ν μ → ν τ oscillation, through the ν τ appearance in a pure ν μ beam. The Opera experiment, with its ∼ 100000 m 2 of nuclear emulsions, needs a very fast automatic scanning system. Optical and mechanics components have been customized in order to achieve a speed of about 20 cm 2 /hour per emulsion layer (44 μm thick), while keeping a sub-micro-metric resolution. The first part of this thesis was dedicated to the optimization of 4 scanning systems at the French scanning station, based in Lyon. An experimental study on a dry objective scanning system has also been realized. The obtained results show that the performances of dry scanning are similar with respect to the traditional oil scanning, so that it can be successfully used for Opera. The second part of this work was devoted to the study of the neutrino interaction location and reconstruction strategy actually used in Opera. A dedicated test beam was performed at CERN in order to simulate Opera conditions. The obtained results definitely confirm that the proposed strategy is well adapted for tau search. (author)

    The OPERA neutrino experiment at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory has measured the velocity of neutrinos from the CERN CNGS beam over a baseline of about 730 km with much higher accuracy than previous studies conducted with accelerator neutrinos. The measurement is based on high-statistics data taken by OPERA in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011. Dedicated upgrades of the CNGS timing system and of the OPERA detector, as well as a high precision geodesy campaign for the measurement of the neutrino baseline, allowed reaching comparable systematic and statistical accuracies. An early arrival time of CNGS muon neutrinos with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of light in vacuum of (60.7 \\pm 6.9 (stat.) \\pm 7.4 (sys.)) ns was measured. This anomaly corresponds to a relative difference of the muon neutrino velocity with respect to the speed of light (v-c)/c = (2.48 \\pm 0.28 (stat.) \\pm 0.30 (sys.)) \\times 10-5.

    The OPERA experiment is situated in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory. It will search for neutrino oscillation from myonneutrinos to tauneutrinos with a massive lead/emulsion target. Part of the OPERA detector is the precision tracker. This precision tracker consists of about 10000 drift tubes of 8 m length. Its purpose is to measure the muon track in the spectrometer of the OPERA detector to determine their momentum and charge. This work studies the basic properties of the precision tracker, such as the dependency of the resolution and the efficiency of the drift tubes and various parameters. These parameters are among others the high voltage and the threshold of the discriminators. The results of these studies led to suitable work parameters at that the precision tracker fulfills the requirements. Further the attenuation of a single 8 m long drift tube was measured. The software, which is used for the track reconstruction, the determination of the resolution and the efficiency was tested with computer generated data from a GEANT simulation. (orig.)

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available The appropriateness of Christian themes in the performing arts has often been debated. Defenders have argued that various media, including drama, can serve as instruments of spiritual edification, while critics have contended that such efforts often eventuate in sacrilege and a vulgarising exploitation of the sacred for commercial and entertainment purposes. A heated debate took place in 1903 when Richard Wagner’s opera Parsifal, which since its première at Bayreuth in 1882 had been hailed as a magnificent representation of redemption and other themes central to Christianity, was staged at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York – its first performance as an opera outside its original venue. Numerous clergymen and lay people in several denominations sought to have the production banned and cautioned fellow Christians against seeing it. Others, generally of a theologically more liberal bent, defended the work. The heated public controversy is placed into historical context and compared with the history of Parsifal in the United Kingdom, where it was widely appreciated without noteworthy opposition.

    The OPERA detector, designed to search for oscillations in the CNGS beam, is located in the underground Gran Sasso laboratory, a privileged location to study TeV-scale cosmic rays. For the analysis here presented, the detector was used to measure the atmospheric muon charge ratio in the TeV region. OPERA collected charge-separated cosmic ray data between 2008 and 2012. More than 3 million atmospheric muon events were detected and reconstructed, among which about 110000 multiple muon bundles. The charge ratio was measured separately for single and for multiple muon events. The analysis exploited the inversion of the magnet polarity which was performed on purpose during the 2012 Run. The combination of the two data sets with opposite magnet polarities allowed minimizing systematic uncertainties and reaching an accurate determination of the muon charge ratio. Data were fitted to obtain relevant parameters on the composition of primary cosmic rays and the associated kaon production in the forward fragmentation region. In the surface energy range 1-20 TeV investigated by OPERA, is well described by a parametric model including only pion and kaon contributions to the muon flux, showing no significant contribution of the prompt component. The energy independence supports the validity of Feynman scaling in the fragmentation region up to TeV/nucleon primary energy.

    Full Text Available Mounting evidence suggests that musical training benefits the neural encoding of speech. This paper offers a hypothesis specifying why such benefits occur. The OPERA hypothesis proposes that such benefits are driven by adaptive plasticity in speech-processing networks, and that this plasticity occurs when five conditions are met. These are: 1 Overlap: there is anatomical overlap in the brain networks that process an acoustic feature used in both music and speech (e.g., waveform periodicity, amplitude envelope, 2 Precision: music places higher demands on these shared networks than does speech, in terms of the precision of processing, 3 Emotion: the musical activities that engage this network elicit strong positive emotion, 4 Repetition: the musical activities that engage this network are frequently repeated, and 5 Attention: the musical activities that engage this network are associated with focused attention. According to the OPERA hypothesis, when these conditions are met neural plasticity drives the networks in question to function with higher precision than needed for ordinary speech communication. Yet since speech shares these networks with music, speech processing benefits. The OPERA hypothesis is used to account for the observed superior subcortical encoding of speech in musically trained individuals, and to suggest mechanisms by which musical training might improve linguistic reading abilities.

    OPERA is a massive lead/emulsion target for a long-baseline neutrino oscillation search. More than 90% of the useful experimental data in OPERA will be produced by the scanning of emulsion plates with the automatic microscopes. The main goal of the data processing in OPERA will be the search, analysis and identification of primary and secondary vertices produced by neutrino in lead-emulsion target. The volume of middle- and high-level data to be analysed and stored is expected to be of the order of several Gb per event. The storage, calibration, reconstruction, analysis and visualization of this data is the task of FEDRA system written in C ++ and based on ROOT framework. The system is now actively used for processing of test beams and simulation data. Several interesting algorithmic solutions permits us to make effective code for fast pattern recognition in heavy signal/noise conditions. The system consists of the storage part, intercalibration and segments linking part, track finding and fitting, vertex finding and fitting and kinematical analysis parts.

  15. Limits on neutrino oscillations in the CNGS neutrino beam and event classification with the OPERA detector

    2012-09-15

    OPERA, the oscillation project with emulsion-tracking apparatus, is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment. It combines an almost pure, high-energy {nu}{sub {mu}} beam produced at the SPS accelerator at CERN, Switzerland, with the OPERA neutrino detector located at a distance of about 730 km in the LNGS underground laboratory in Italy. By using a lead/photo emulsion target, {nu}{sub {tau}} charged current (CC) interactions of {nu}{sub {tau}} from {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}} oscillations can be observed on an event-by-event basis with very low background rates.

    OPERA, the oscillation project with emulsion-tracking apparatus, is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment. It combines an almost pure, high-energy ν μ beam produced at the SPS accelerator at CERN, Switzerland, with the OPERA neutrino detector located at a distance of about 730 km in the LNGS underground laboratory in Italy. By using a lead/photo emulsion target, ν τ charged current (CC) interactions of ν τ from ν μ → ν τ oscillations can be observed on an event-by-event basis with very low background rates. Within this thesis, a ν μ →ν μ disappearance search is described that uses a flux normalization. independent measurement of the CC event fraction as a function of the hadronic energy as measured by the electronic detectors of OPERA. This allows to derive limits on ν μ →ν μ oscillations, complementary to the main ν τ appearance analysis. For maximal mixing, vertical stroke Δm 2 23 vertical stroke >4.4 x 10 -3 eV 2 is excluded at 90% C.L. by the disappearance analysis. This thesis represents the first application of this method, including systematic uncertainties, in a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment.

  17. Neutrino oscillations on and off the beam: studies of the OPERA acquisition system performance

    2011-01-01

    OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tracking Apparatus) is a neutrino beam experiment located in hall C of the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS), in Italia, under a equivalent of 3.8 km water (corresponding to a cut at 1.5 TeV for the muons). The first purpose of OPERA is the direct observation of the ν μ → ν τ oscillation in the atmospheric sector observing a ν τ appearance 730 km away from the target in a quasi pure ν μ beam (CNGS). OPERA is an hybrid detector with an instrumented target part (about 125000 bricks made with emulsion and lead sheets) and a spectrometer. Collecting data started in 2006 and 55000 events have been recorded. The first ν τ candidate have been observed this year. The work done during this thesis is oriented around three main topics: Define the trigger rules of the target tracker acquisition system for beam neutrino events, synchronise target tracker and RPC elements, implement the results inside the simulation and the study of the feasibility of an atmospheric neutrino analysis using o-beam data. The new trigger rules succeeds to reach the values of OPERA proposal, i.e. a trigger efficiency greater than 99%. This improvement have been done thanks to coincidence time windows with the CNGS beam during which lower cut are applied, allowing low multiplicity events to be kept. A deep study of electronic detectors intercalibration makes possible the target tracker and RPC data synchronisation. The analysis results are now included in the official simulation. This calibration work have been then used for a study of 'off-beam' atmospheric neutrino oscillation thanks to the selection of up-going particles. The analysis shown in the thesis has improved the OPERA detector understanding and demonstrates the feasibility of an observation of phenomena independent from the Cgs beam. Analysis on atmospherics neutrino detection and muons flux characterisation (seasonal variations for example) are now possible thanks to the

    The commissioning and the proof of functionality of the Precision Tracker of the OPERA experiment is subject of this thesis. The timing system of the precision tracker is of major concern here. At first the time.resolution of the timing electronics was characterized additionally general running parameters were studied. Afterwards the installation and commissioning were carried out. The precision tracker is supposed to determine the momentum of throughgoing myons with an accuracy of {delta}p/p<0.25 as well as the sign of their charge. The commissioning is finished by now and it was shown, that the data acquisition system runs very reliable and only 1.5% show an slightly higher number of hits. The nominal spatial track resolution of {sigma}<600 {mu}m was also reached. (orig.)

    Full Text Available This study is entitled THE USES OF RELIGIOUS SYMBOL TO REPRESENT ISLAM (A Study on Religious Soap Opera Bukan Islam KTP. The background of the research is based on the facts of the arbitrary use of symbols to represent Islam shown on Indonesian televisions. The pattern of the use of religious symbols, either verbal or non-verbal symbols are generally explicit, but when examined using appropriate methods, they are actually contained some implicit meanings. The purpose of this study was to discover about how Islam is represented on television religious soap opera using religious symbols and to find out the dominant ideology behind the representation techniques. To analyze the soap operas consist of twenty episodes, the researcher used a semiotic approach by John Fiske on television codes. The results of this study are: (1 the use of verbal symbols to represent Islam potentially creates multiple interpretations when they are spoken by different characters. (2 Some religious terminologies are often used by antagonist player to express anger and disappointment. (3 The soap opera is dominated by verbal violence used by both protagonist and antagonist players, while antagonist player use violence both in verbal and non-verbal forms. The findings about ideology embedded in the soap opera are: (1 capitalist-materialistic ideology, (2 ideology of patriarchy, and (3 violence domination.

  3. OPERA, an automatic PSF reconstruction software for Shack-Hartmann AO systems: application to Altair

    Jolissaint, Laurent; Veran, Jean-Pierre; Marino, Jose

    2004-10-01

    When doing high angular resolution imaging with adaptive optics (AO), it is of crucial importance to have an accurate knowledge of the point spread function associated with each observation. Applications are numerous: image contrast enhancement by deconvolution, improved photometry and astrometry, as well as real time AO performance evaluation. In this paper, we present our work on automatic PSF reconstruction based on control loop data, acquired simultaneously with the observation. This problem has already been solved for curvature AO systems. To adapt this method to another type of WFS, a specific analytical noise propagation model must be established. For the Shack-Hartmann WFS, we are able to derive a very accurate estimate of the noise on each slope measurement, based on the covariances of the WFS CCD pixel values in the corresponding sub-aperture. These covariances can be either derived off-line from telemetry data, or calculated by the AO computer during the acquisition. We present improved methods to determine 1) r0 from the DM drive commands, which includes an estimation of the outer scale L0 2) the contribution of the high spatial frequency component of the turbulent phase, which is not corrected by the AO system and is scaled by r0. This new method has been implemented in an IDL-based software called OPERA (Performance of Adaptive Optics). We have tested OPERA on Altair, the recently commissioned Gemini-North AO system, and present our preliminary results. We also summarize the AO data required to run OPERA on any other AO system.

    In this thesis the reconstruction of tracks within the OPERA muon spectrometer is described as well as parts of the simulation software concerning the drift tubes. A method minimising the {chi}{sup 2} of the tracks is used for the fit, which is supported by liklyhood considerations during the pattern recognition. An analytical description of the time to distance relation for the OPERA drift tubes is introduced to be used in the fit. For simulated events of cosmics a resolution of 410{+-}4 {mu}m and an efficiency of more that 93% has been acquired. For real cosmic data from the OPERA detector a resolution o 374{+-}3 {mu}m and an efficiency of up to 84% has been reached. The acquired angular resolution of 1,2 mrad is sufficient to achieve a momentum resolution of 25% up to momentums of 25 GeV. (orig.)

  8. Analysis of the OPERA-15 two-dimensional voiding experiment using the SAS4A code

    1984-01-01

    Overall, SAS4A appears to do a good job for simulating the OPERA-15 experiment. For most of the experiment parameters, the code calculations compare quite well with the experimental data. The lack of a multi-dimensional voiding model has the effect of extending the flow coastdown time until voiding starts; otherwise, the code simulates the accident progression satisfactorily. These results indicate a need for further work in this area in the form of a tandem analysis by a two-dimensional flow code and a one-dimensional version of that code to confirm the observations derived from the SAS4A analysis

    Vocal fold hemorrhage can represent a disastrous and potentially career ending injury to a singer or professional voice user. The risk factors of vocal fold hemorrhage, including laryngeal trauma, phonotrauma, aspirin and nonsteroidal antiinflammatories, and hormonal imbalances are well known. We present a case of an opera singer who developed recurrent vocal fold hemorrhage associated with coumadin anticoagulation therapy. This case highlights the importance of the risk of vocal fold hemorrhage to professional singers and professional voice users and offers an alternative to long-term coumadin therapy in this select population.

    Concern has been expressed about the potentially contagious effect of television soap opera suicides and suicidal language in social media. Twitter content was analyzed during the week in which a fictional assisted suicide was broadcast on a British television soap opera, "Coronation Street." Tweets were collected if they contained language indicating possible suicidal intent or used the word suicide. The modified Thompson tau method was used to test for any differences in the volume of tweets in both categories on the day of screening. Content analysis broke down the use of the word suicide into six thematic categories. There was no evidence on the day of screening of an increase in tweets expressing possible suicidal intent but there was an increase in tweets containing the word suicide. Content analysis found the most common thematic category to be information or support, followed by the raising of moral issues in relation to suicide. It is possible that for certain high-profile media events Twitter may be used more as a civic reactive forum than as a medium for introspection or disclosure of distress.

  19. Neutrino velocity measurement with the OPERA experiment in the CNGS beam

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Brunetti, G.

    2011-05-01

    The thesis concerns the measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA experiment in the CNGS beam. There are different theoretical models that allow for Lorentz violating effects which can be investigated with measurements on terrestrial neutrino beams. The MINOS experiment published in 2007 a measure on the muon neutrinos over a distance of 730 km finding a deviation with respect to the expected time of flight of 126 ns with a statistical error of 32 ns and a systematic error of 64 ns. The OPERA experiment observes as well muon neutrinos 730 km away from the source, with a sensitivity significantly better than MINOS thanks to the higher number of interactions in the detector due to the higher energy beam and the much more sophisticated timing system explicitly upgraded in view of the neutrino velocity measurement. This system is composed by atomic cesium clocks and GPS receivers operating in 'common view mode'. Thanks to this system a time-transfer between the two sites with a precision at the level of 1 ns is possible. Moreover, a Fast Waveform Digitizer was installed along the proton beam line at CERN in order to measure the internal time structure of the proton pulses that are sent to the CNGS target. The result on the neutrino velocity is the most precise measurement so far with terrestrial neutrino beams: the neutrino time of flight was determined with a statistical uncertainty of about 10 ns and a systematic uncertainty smaller than 20 nano-seconds.

    Janicskó-Csáthy, József

    The OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tRacking Apparatus ) experiment or CNGS1 was approved in 2001 by CERN and presently is under construction. Data-taking is expected to start in 2006. The experiment is designated to the νμ  ντ oscillation search. OPERA is a hybrid detector comprising a number of electronic detectors and a specially designed nuclear emulsion stack interlaced with lead plates. The total target mass of the detector will be about 1.8 kt. This impressive mass needed for neutrino detection is combined with an even more impressive spatial resolution of about a m , characteristic of the nuclear emulsion technique. The detection of ντ is based on the observation of the decay of the τ lepton. The fine grained structure of nuclear emulsions offers the possibility to directly observe such a decay and by the means of kinematical analysis can be clearly separated from background events. Nuclear emulsions will be produced and processed in industrial quantities and the readout will be don...

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Romanou Aikaterini

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available In this article the writer investigates the relations between perceptions of the East and the West in nineteenth century Greece, their connection to national identity, to the language question and to political tendencies. The composer Manoles Kalomoires was influenced by a group of progressive intellectuals striving to liberate Greek literature and language from its dependence on Ancient Greek legacy, a dependence motivated by Western idealists (who saw in the Greek Revolution of 1821 a renaissance of Ancient Greece. Most were educated in the West, but promoted an oriental image of Greeks. Kalomoires' musical expression of this image was inspired by Rimsky-Korsakov's Sheherazade and the Golden Cockerel. In 1909-910 he wrote an unfinished opera, Mavrianos and the King, on the model of the Golden Cockerel. He later used this music in his best known opera, The Mother's Ring (1917. In the present article the similarities in the three works are for the first time shown. An essential influence from Rimsky-Korsakov's work is the contrast between the world of freedom, nature and fantasy and that of oppression.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gilles Couderc

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available The composition of Benjamin Britten’s sixth opera, Gloriana, originates from a conversation about emblematic national operas, the lack thereof in the British repertory and the need for Britten to compose such an opera to coincide with the Coronation of the young Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Britten’s insistence on composing such an opera based on the tragic love story between the first Queen Elizabeth and Essex, depicted in Lytton Strachey’s dramatic biography, raises several questions. Why should Britten, the controversial composer of several controversial works, curry royal patronage? Why should he insist on composing for an event of such national significance? Why should Britten ride the hobby horse of a national opera and share the obsession of a national opera common to German composers of the Romantic generation? Gloriana turns out to be one of the elements that point to modernist and cosmopolitan Britten’s great sense of a national identity as a composer and his claim to work within a distinctly English tradition. The Coronation opera is also one of many endeavours in Britten’s production to resuscitate English Opera, his life-long ambition. With Gloriana, Britten once more leads the fight to eradicate English people’s prejudices against musicians in general and their own composers in particular and to give the lie to the dictum that Britain is the country that has no music.

  4. Alignment of the drift tube detector at the neutrino oscillation experiment OPERA

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Goellnitz, Christoph

    2012-09-01

    The present thesis was composed during the course of the OPERA experiment, which aims to give a direct evidence for neutrino oscillations in the channel ν μ → ν τ . The OPERA detector is designed to observe the appearance of tau neutrinos in an originally pure muon neutrino beam, the CNGS beam. As important part of the detector the precision tracker (PT), a drift tube detector, consists of 9504 drift tubes in 198 modules. In this thesis, several parts of the slow control of the PT are developed and implemented to ensure operation during data taking over several years. The main part is the geometric calibration, the alignment of the detector. The alignment procedure contains both hardware and software parts, the software methods are developed and applied. Using straight particle tracks, the detector components are geometrically corrected. A special challenge for the alignment for the PT is the fact that at this kind of low-rate experiment only a small number of particle tracks is available. With software-based corrections of the module rotation, a systematic error of 0.2 mrad has been attained, for corrections of translation, a systematic error of 32 μm is reached. For the alignment between two adjacent PT walls, the statistical error is less than 8 μm. All results of the position monitoring system are considered. All developed methods are tested with Monte Carlo simulations. The detector requirements (Δp/p ≤ 0.25 below 25 GeV) are met. The analysis of the momentum measurement for high energies above 25 GeV demonstrates the resulting improvement. The mean momentum is falling significantly using the new alignment values. The significance of the detector alignment becomes most evident in the analysis of cosmic particles. The muon charge ratio R μ is expected not to be angular dependent. The χ 2 probability of the measured distribution improves up to 58%. The muon charge ratio was also investigated in dependence of particle energy in terms of the alignment

  12. Le serie tv sono la nuova soap opera? Luci e ombre della Grande Serialità televisiva

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available Until a few years ago, television seriality was a secondary topic in the academic research, above all in Italy, whereas today, tv series have turned into the main interest of a lively scholarship, mostly belonging to disciplines traditionally not interested in the study of serial forms. Mutatis mutandis, today the central role of tv series is similar to the relevance of the soap opera in the critical debate in the Eighties and Nineties. From being neglected as an irrelevant part of television schedules, in a few years the soap opera turned into the symbol of a rich and polysemic textuality which quickly became the central topic of the newly-born fields of television studies and women studies. Obviously, the parallel between the soap opera and the new tv series cannot be drawn upon narrative or aesthetic dimensions, but (in the maybe provocative perspective proposed by this paper both formulas demonstrate a basic assumption of seriality: serial forms are  shaped by the mediascape they stem from. Therefore, as it happened to the soap opera, today’s academical interest for tv series shows many great opportunities and some deep contradictions, including the old matter of cultural hegemony which seems to appear once again in the evaluative attitude of some critical approaches.

  13. The OPERA experiment. ν{sub μ}→ν{sub τ} oscillation discovered in appearance mode

    2016-07-01

    The primary goal of the OPERA long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment is the first direct detection of ν{sub μ}→ν{sub τ} oscillations. The hybrid OPERA detector consists of a large-mass target made from lead and photo emulsions - providing micrometric resolution - and electronic detector parts for online readout. It is located in the LNGS underground laboratory, at a distance of 730 km from the SPS at CERN, where the CNGS ν{sub μ} beam is produced. The measurement of ν{sub τ} appearance relies on the detection of the decay of τ leptons which are created in ν{sub τ} charged current reactions. Data acquisition lasted from 2008 to 2012. With the collected data the OPERA experiment discovered ν{sub τ} appearance in the CNGS neutrino beam with a significance of 5.1 σ. This poster will give an overview about the OPERA experiment and the discovery of τ neutrino appearance in the CNGS neutrino beam.

    The OPERA neutrino detector at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory (LNGS) was designed to perform the first detection of neutrino oscillations in appearance mode, through the study of nu_mu to nu_tau oscillations. The apparatus consists of a lead/emulsion-film target complemented by electronic detectors. It is placed in the high-energy, long-baseline CERN to LNGS beam (CNGS) 730 km away from the neutrino source. In August 2006 a first run with CNGS neutrinos was successfully conducted. A first sample of neutrino events was collected, statistically consistent with the integrated beam intensity. After a brief description of the beam and of the various sub-detectors, we report on the achievement of this milestone, presenting the first data and some analysis results.

The analysis shows that conventional management models primarily use the symbolic forms of science and myth, while Kasper integrates the symbolic forms of art and science. In what Kasper has to say on management, features...... and structures for a new management discourse practice emerge which is more suited to postmodern society than more conventional management models.......This article investigates whether it would be expedient for our management models to be inspired by art as a form of consciousness. With this in mind, the article analyses the symbolic forms embedded in the management discourse practice of art in the way that the concept is unfolded by the highly...

    The OPERA detector at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS) was used to measure the atmospheric muon charge ratio in the TeV energy region. We analyzed 403069 atmospheric muons corresponding to 113.4 days of livetime during the 2008 CNGS run. We computed separately the muon charge ratio for single and for multiple muon events in order to select different energy regions of the primary cosmic ray spectrum and to test the charge ratio dependence on the primary composition. The measured charge ratio values were corrected taking into account the charge-misidentification errors. Data have also been grouped in five bins of the "vertical surface energy". A fit to a simplified model of muon production in the atmosphere allowed the determination of the pion and kaon charge ratios weighted by the cosmic ray energy spectrum.

    The OPERA detector at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS) was used to measure the cosmic ray muon charge ratio Rμ = Nμ+/Nμ− in the TeV energy region. We analyzed 403069 cosmic ray muons corresponding to 113.4 days of livetime during the 2008 CNGS run. We computed separately the muon charge ratio for single and for multiple muon events in order to select different energy regions of the primary cosmic ray spectrum and to test the Rμ dependence on the primary composition. Rμ is also shown as a function of the Òvertical surface energyÓ Eμ cos !. A Þt to a simpliÞed model of muon pro- duction in atmosphere allowed the determination of the pion and kaon charge ratios weighted by the cosmic ray energy spectrum.

    The commissioning and the proof of functionality of the Precision Tracker of the OPERA experiment is subject of this thesis. The timing system of the precision tracker is of major concern here. At first the time.resolution of the timing electronics was characterized additionally general running parameters were studied. Afterwards the installation and commissioning were carried out. The precision tracker is supposed to determine the momentum of throughgoing myons with an accuracy of Δp/p<0.25 as well as the sign of their charge. The commissioning is finished by now and it was shown, that the data acquisition system runs very reliable and only 1.5% show an slightly higher number of hits. The nominal spatial track resolution of σ<600 μm was also reached. (orig.)

  20. Theory of acoustic design of opera house and a design proposal

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ando, Yoichi

    2004-05-01

    First of all, the theory of subjective preference for sound fields based on the model of auditory-brain system is briefly mentioned. It consists of the temporal factors and spatial factors associated with the left and right cerebral hemispheres, respectively. The temporal criteria are the initial time delay gap between the direct sound and the first Reflection (Dt1) and the subsequent reverberation time (Tsub). These preferred conditions are related to the minimum value of effective duration of the running autocorrelation function of source signals (te)min. The spatial criteria are binaural listening level (LL) and the IACC, which may be extracted from the interaural crosscorrelation function. In the opera house, there are two different kind of sound sources, i.e., the vocal source of relatively short values of (te)min in the stage and the orchestra music of long values of (te)min in the pit. For these sources, a proposal is made here.

  1. Measured Early Lateral Energy Fractions in Concert Halls and Opera Houses

    BARRON, M.

    2000-04-01

    In the 30 years since early lateral reflections were first suggested as important for concert halls, spatial impression and source broadening have become almost universally accepted as essential characteristics of halls with good acoustics. Two objective measures of source broadening have been proposed. Measured values of the best defined of these measures, the early lateral energy fraction (LF), are considered here. Results from two independent measurement surveys are discussed. Comparisons of LF values by hall show a significant link between hall mean LF and hall width. There is however considerable overlap between measured LF values in different halls so the relevance of describing halls by their mean early lateral energy fraction values is questionable. The behaviour of LF values within auditoria is discussed for different concert hall plan forms and within opera houses. A measure of source broadening including sound level is proposed and results considered in the context of auditorium design.

  3. AIDS soap opera generates massive interest. Eye witness: Cote d'Ivoire.

    1995-12-01

    SIDA Dans La Cite (AIDS in the City) is a popular weekly soap opera first broadcast in Cote d'Ivoire in 1991 with 11 15-minute episodes. The series is part of a campaign by Population Services International (PSI) to raise awareness about AIDS among Ivorian youth. Actors worked for a nominal fee, editing studios were provided at substantial discounts, and filming equipment was borrowed for next to nothing. Production director realized how important the soap opera had become after the fourth episode. A study of 700 households in Abidjan found that of the 75% who had access to a television, two-thirds had seen at least one episode. Cote d'Ivoire may be one of the most religiously conservative countries in Africa. 10% of the adult population, however, is infected with HIV. All sectors of society therefore understand the need to openly understand and discuss sexual issues in the context of such high HIV prevalence. Studies indicate that virtually everyone in Cote d'Ivoire has heard of AIDS and knows that it is a sexually transmitted disease, but persuading people to change their behavior is difficult. PSI sells approximately 750,000 of its subsidized Prudence condoms. Prudence has the same brand recognition in the country as Nescafe and Toyota. A recent survey of sexually active teens found that 30% of girls and 45% of boys used condoms. A weekly radio show is broadcast live from one of the poorest ghettos of Abidjan. Guests include popular singers, comedians, and television personalities. The actors are often from SIDA Dans La Cite.

  4. Acoustic Measurements in Opera Houses: Comparison Between Different Techniques and Equipment

    FAUSTI, P.; FARINA, A.

    2000-04-01

    In room acoustics, many objective parameters to quantify subjective impressions have been introduced. These quantities can be measured by using a wide variety of powerful tools and equipment. The results can be influenced by the measurement techniques and instruments used. Furthermore, the results also depend on the measurement positions and on the condition of the hall (full, empty, etc.). The aim of this work is to define a tightly standardized measurement procedure for the collection of a complete objective description of an opera house's acoustics. In this paper some of the results obtained by the authors after measurements made in three different halls are presented. Comparisons were made both between different hardware and software tools (real-time analyzer, DAT, PC-board, source, microphones, post-processing software) and between different measurement methods (interrupted stationary noise, true-impulse, pseudo-random white noise with impulse-response doconvolution, sine sweep) as well as between different positions in the halls, with and without the presence of musicians and audience. The results have shown that the differences obtained when using different measurement techniques and equipment are not of significant importance. The only effective differences were found regarding the recording techniques, as the monaural measurements give appreciably different results from the average of left and right channel of binaural measurements. Slightly different results were alsofound between true impulsive sources (pistol shots, balloons) and omni-directional (dodecahedral) loudspeakers. Attention must be paid to the signal-to-noise ratio, as this can influence the correct calculation of some acoustical parameters. Some differences, not as great as expected, were found in the results with and without the musicians in the orchestra shell and with and without the audience in the hall. This is probably due to the high sound absorption that is typical in Italian opera

    Full Text Available This paper revisits the literature on media and gender studies in search of works that help to discuss the case of Brazilian soap operas. A series of references coming from different theoretical perspectives, with emphasis in different countries and historical periods, bring up ideas and concepts that approach the contemporary desire to connect, to participate and to interact in terms conventionally associated to the female domain. Examples from specific soap operas suggest the ways in which these prime time daily soaps blend documentary and fiction conventions and treat the Brazilian nation in melodramatic terms. In doing so, soap operas have expanded what was conventionally treated as the female domain.

    In spring 2012 CERN provided two weeks of a short bunch proton beam dedicated to the neutrino velocity measurement over a distance of 730 km. The OPERA neutrino experiment at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory used an upgraded setup compared to the 2011 measurements, improving the measurement time accuracy. An independent timing system based on the Resistive Plate Chambers was exploited providing a time accuracy of $\\sim$1 ns. Neutrino and anti-neutrino contributions were separated using the information provided by the OPERA magnetic spectrometers. The new analysis profited from the precision geodesy measurements of the neutrino baseline and of the CNGS/LNGS clock synchronization. The neutrino arrival time with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of light in vacuum is found to be $\\delta t_\

    Full Text Available Television is a very influential media and important tool in capital accumulation. This study aims to reveal the use of Islamic and Betawi ethnic symbols, workers, and also the audiences of Tukang Bubur Naik Haji (TBNH soap opera at RCTI. This research used a political economy of communication perspective. The data were collected by using interview, observation, documentation, and literature study. The result shows that the religious symbols of Islam and Betawi culture have been exploited as comodity to be traded. Those symbols have been commercialized dan manipulated through the use of sensational, provocative, and hyperbole words or sentences to entertain audiences and to attract the advertisers. The hyper-comercialization and politicization of symbols caused the soap opera workers and Moslem audiences have been exploited.

    2009-01-01

    Neutrino oscillations are now well acknowledged, the purpose of the Opera experiment is to show how ν τ appear in a ν μ beam. The ν μ beam is produced at CERN and crosses the earth crust on a distance of 732 km before being detected in the Gran-Sasso underground laboratory. The Opera experiment uses the technique of the photographic emulsion. The detector target is a series of walls of lead bricks, each brick being made of photographic emulsions intercalated with lead sheets. A target tracker enables the localization of the brick in which the neutrino interaction has happened. As soon as the brick is found, the brick is removed from the detector and the emulsion is developed and analysed. the target tracker is made up of plastic scintillator bars on which optic fibers are stuck to collect photons and send them to photomultipliers. The main purpose of this work is the calibration of the target tracker. The first chapter introduces the standard model, the neutrino and the neutrino oscillation phenomenon. The second chapter reviews the neutrino experiments worldwide. The third chapter describes the Opera experiment while chapter 4 and 5 are dedicated to the design and operation of the target tracker. The last chapter studies through simulation the behaviour of the target tracker when submitted to an electron beam in order to use it as a complementary tool for the identification of the τ → e channel.

    Electron beam transport from E-gun to the atmospheres in EBM is determined by main parameters of beam transports such as E-gun, accelerator tube, beam optics (focusing and scanning magnets). In principle the beam transport will optimum if the electron beam travels in axial axes of accelerator tubes, and the beam optics works properly. The EBM E-gun structure of PSTA uses diode type with Pierce cathode where beam transport yield will be affected by electrode voltage of the accelerator tube. To answer above hypothesis the E-gun and accelerator tube will be simulated by making a model used accelerator software programme which is called OPERA-3D. Beam transport parameters, such as distance between cathode and anode of E-gun, accelerator electrode HV, and the symmetry of cathode Pierce E-gun with anode electrode of accelerator tube, will be investigated their impacts to direction and shape of beam transports. The simulation results shows that the three parameters affects to the direction and shape of the beam transport. Diode type of electron gun cannot result parallel electron beam, but the best beam transport of this type electron gun are obtained at the accelerator voltage 300 kV, and the distance between cathode and anode of E-gun 6.1 mm where they are in the symmetry condition.

    Full Text Available A cirurgia de Gleen bidirecional tem sido empregadacomo uma opção ao tratamento cirúrgico de pacientes considerados candidatos "não ideais" à cirurgia de derivação átrio-pulmonar. A operação consiste na anastomose da veia cava superior com a artéria pulmonar (anastomose término-lateral, permitindo o fluxo sanguíneo também para o pulmão contra-lateral. A partir de janeiro de 1990 até fevereiro de 1992, 20 pacientes foram operados em nosso Serviço, com idade variando de 5 meses a 8 anos (média de 37,7 meses. Oito pacientes eram do sexo feminino e o peso variou de 6,3 a 18,8 Kg (média - 12,4 kg. A indicação cirúrgica foi considerada primária em 10 casos. Sete casos de atresia tricúspide e 3 de ventrículo único, que apresentavam acentuada diminuição do fluxo pulmonar e não eram candidatos a correção total funcional. Os demais pacientes tiveram a indicação considerada secundária, ou seja, já haviam sido submetidos a operação de shunt artério-venoso, cerclagem do tranco pulmonar, ou atriosseptostomia, 8 casos de atresia tricúspide, 3 de ventrículo único com estenose ou cerclagem pulmonar e 1 caso de DVSVD com ventrículo superior-inferior. A operação foi realizada com desvio da veia cava-átrio direito em 12 casos e com o uso de CEC em 8. Durante o procedimento cirúrgico, os pacientes foram monitorizados com oxímetro pulsátil e a saturação de oxigênio média pré-correção foi de 75,5% (71% a 86% e após, de 95% (91% a 98%. Não ocorreu óbito hospitalar e o único óbito tardio foi devido a infecção pulmonar no 2º mês de pós-operatório. Achamos, portanto, que a operação de Glenn bidirecional estará bem indicada como primeira etapa da correção definitiva, pois não aumenta o trabalho cardíaco e a resistência vascular pulmonar não produz distorções em artéria pulmonar como shunt tipo Blalock-Taussig.The bidirectional Glenn anastomosis has bee used as an effective mean of palliating

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available On March 17, 2011 the conductor Riccardo Muti stood in the orchestra pit at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and, in the presence of the Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, and the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, denounced the Italian government’s cuts to funding for the arts and culture. He then invited the entire audience to join the opera’s chorus in an encore of Va’ Pensiero, the hymn of the Hebrew slaves in Nabucco, to protest the cuts. Within two days of the sing-a-long, the Italian government reversed the course it set more than ten months before and agreed to a tax that would be used to restore funds to the arts and culture budget. This article traces how and why these acts of protest in Italy developed, succeeded, and then were appropriated by transnational activists interested in encouraging popular constitutionalism. Because the entire process made considerable use of Facebook, blogs, YouTube, and Twitter, this case study simultaneously explores how a popular protest became a successful expression of popular constitutionalism, and considers how the messages of that protest evolved across a transnational public sphere that encompassed Web 2.0.

    Music is one of the most sophisticated and fascinating functions of the brain. Yet, how music is instantiated within the brain is not fully characterized. Singing is a peculiar aspect of music, in which both musical and linguistic skills are required to provide a merged vocal output. Identifying the neural correlates of this process is relevant for both clinical and research purposes. An adult white man with a presumed left temporal glioma was studied. He is a professional opera singer. A tailored music evaluation, the Montreal Battery of Evaluation of Amusia, was performed preoperatively and postoperatively, with long-term follow-up. Intraoperative stimulation mapping (ISM) with awake surgery with a specific music evaluation battery was used to identify and preserve the cortical and subcortical structures subserving music, along with standard motor-sensory and language mapping. A total resection of a grade I glioma was achieved. The Montreal Battery of Evaluation of Amusia reported an improvement in musical scores after the surgery. ISM consistently elicited several types of errors in the superior temporal gyrus and, to a lesser extent, in the inferior frontal operculum. Most errors occurred during score reading; fewer errors were elicited during the assessment of rhythm. No spontaneous errors were recorded. These areas did not overlap with eloquent sites for counting or naming. ISM and a tailored music battery enabled better characterization of a specific network within the brain subserving score reading independently from speech with long-term clinical impact.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Objective acoustic analysis is a key component of multidimensional voice assessment. OperaVOX is an iOS app which has been shown to be comparable to Multi Dimensional Voice Program for most principal measures of vocal function. As a relatively cheap, portable and easily accessible form of acoustic analysis, OperaVOX may be more clinically useful than laboratory-based software in many situations. This study aims to determine whether correlation exists between acoustic measurements obtained using OperaVOX, and perceptual evaluation of voice. Methods Forty-four voices from the multidisciplinary voice clinic were examined. Each voice was assessed blindly by a single experienced voice therapist using the GRBAS scale, and analysed using OperaVOX. The Spearman rank correlation co-efficient was calculated between each element of the GRBAS scale and acoustic measurements obtained by OperaVOX. Results Significant correlations were identified between GRBAS scores and OperaVOX parameters. Grade correlated significantly with jitter (ρ = 0.495, p < 0.05, shimmer (ρ = 0.385, p < 0.05, noise-to-harmonic ratio (NHR; ρ = 0.526, p < 0.05 and maximum phonation time (MPT; ρ = −0.415, p < 0.05. Roughness did not correlate with any of the measured variables. Breathiness correlated significantly with jitter (ρ = 0.342, p < 0.05, NHR (ρ = 0.344, p < 0.05 and MPT (ρ = −0.336, p < 0.05. Aesthenia correlated with NHR (ρ = 0.413, p < 0.05 and MPT (ρ = −0.399, p < 0.05. Strain correlated with Jitter (ρ = 0.560, p < 0.05, NHR (ρ = 0.600, p < 0.05 and MPT (ρ = −0.356, p < 0.05. Conclusions OperaVOX provides objective acoustic analysis which has shown statistically significant correlation to perceptual evaluation using the GRBAS scale. The accessibility of the software package makes it possible for a wide range of health practitioners, e.g. general ENT

    Full Text Available Ao longo dos últimos quarenta anos, as telenovelas - seriados comerciais exibidos seis vezes por semana em horário nobre, feitos para um público imaginado como feminino, mas assistidos por um público composto, em sua fase mais popular, em 40% por homens - se tornaram espaço privilegiado de interpretação do Brasil. Uma complexa rede de relações envolve a agenda militar autoritária nacionalista e desenvolvimentista; a agenda de anunciantes, homens da indústria e do comércio; e o talento de escritores, atores e diretores de esquerda (também nacional e desenvolvimentista com repertório e conhecimento de cinema e teatro. Feita ao mesmo tempo em que vai ao ar, a novela captou e expressou ao menos três interpretações de um país que se transformou rápida e estruturalmente. As principais convenções estéticas do gênero alimentaram emissoras rivais a propor três interpretações do país. Em sintonia com o Brasil que se quer do futuro, as novelas da Rede Globo, a partir de 1969, registraram os dramas da urbanização, das diferenças sociais, da fragmentação da família, da liberalização das relações conjugais e dos padrões de consumo.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Interactions between the immune response and brain functions such as olfactory, auditory, and visual sensations are likely. This study investigated the effect of sounds on alloimmune responses in a murine model of cardiac allograft transplantation. Methods Naïve CBA mice (H2k underwent transplantation of a C57BL/6 (B6, H2b heart and were exposed to one of three types of music--opera (La Traviata, classical (Mozart, and New Age (Enya--or one of six different single sound frequencies, for 7 days. Additionally, we prepared two groups of CBA recipients with tympanic membrane perforation exposed to opera for 7 days and CBA recipients exposed to opera for 7 days before transplantation (pre-treatment. An adoptive transfer study was performed to determine whether regulatory cells were generated in allograft recipients. Immunohistochemical, cell-proliferation, cytokine, and flow cytometry assessments were also performed. Results CBA recipients of a B6 cardiac graft that were exposed to opera music and Mozart had significantly prolonged allograft survival (median survival times [MSTs], 26.5 and 20 days, respectively, whereas those exposed to a single sound frequency (100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10,000, or 20,000 Hz or Enya did not (MSTs, 7.5, 8, 9, 8, 7.5, 8.5 and 11 days, respectively.

Adoptive transfer of whole splenocytes, CD4+ cells, or CD4+CD25+ cells from opera-exposed primary allograft recipients resulted in significantly prolonged allograft survival in naive secondary recipients (MSTs, 36, 68, and > 100 days, respectively. Proliferation of splenocytes, interleukin (IL-2 and interferon (IFN-γ production was suppressed in opera-exposed mice, and production of IL-4 and IL-10 from opera-exposed transplant recipients increased

  2. Neutrino interaction event reconstruction and analysis in the Opera emulsion targets and charmed background rejection in the τ → 3h channel

    2008-07-01

    OPERA (Gran-Sasso, Italy) is a long-baseline neutrino experiment dedicated to the tau neutrino detection in a pure muon neutrino beam, produced at CERN (730 km away). The main goal is to observe the ν μ → ν τ oscillation. The experiment uses a hybrid technology with electronic detectors and target blocks made of lead plates interleaved with nuclear emulsion sheets, in order to sign efficiently the ν τ interactions. The fundamental features of OPERA are its particle reconstruction performances achieved in spatial and angular resolutions. The first studies done in this thesis concern the development of several analysis tools like the particle momentum determination using the multiple coulomb scattering in target, and a method of neutrino interaction reconstruction for multi-vertex events. Then it has been possible to develop a multivariable analysis in order to separate τ and charmed events in the τ decay channel into three charged hadrons. These tools have been tested with neutrino interactions observed first with the OPERA test-beam called PEANUT, then with the OPERA events accumulated during the first CNGS (CERN Neutrino to Gran Sasso) run in 2007. The combined analysis of these events has shown that both the analysis method and the OPERA detector behaviour are well understood. (author)

    The OPERA experiment was designed to search for ν{sub μ} → ν{sub τ} oscillations in appearance mode through the direct observation of tau neutrinos in the CNGS neutrino beam. In this paper, we report a study of the multiplicity of charged particles produced in charged-current neutrino interactions in lead. We present charged hadron average multiplicities, their dispersion and investigate the KNO scaling in different kinematical regions. The results are presented in detail in the form of tables that can be used in the validation of Monte Carlo generators of neutrino-lead interactions. (orig.)

    Following Super Kamiokande and K2K experiments, Opera (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tracking Apparatus), aims to confirm neutrino oscillation in the atmospheric sector. Taking advantage of a technique already employed in Chorus and in Donut, the Emulsion Cloud Chamber (ECC), Opera will be able to observe the {nu}{sub {mu}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}} oscillation, through the {nu}{sub {tau}} appearance in a pure {nu}{sub {mu}} beam. The Opera experiment, with its {approx} 100000 m{sup 2} of nuclear emulsions, needs a very fast automatic scanning system. Optical and mechanics components have been customized in order to achieve a speed of about 20 cm{sup 2}/hour per emulsion layer (44 {mu}m thick), while keeping a sub-micro-metric resolution. The first part of this thesis was dedicated to the optimization of 4 scanning systems at the French scanning station, based in Lyon. An experimental study on a dry objective scanning system has also been realized. The obtained results show that the performances of dry scanning are similar with respect to the traditional oil scanning, so that it can be successfully used for Opera. The second part of this work was devoted to the study of the neutrino interaction location and reconstruction strategy actually used in Opera. A dedicated test beam was performed at CERN in order to simulate Opera conditions. The obtained results definitely confirm that the proposed strategy is well adapted for tau search. (author)

    Full Text Available O turismo é um dos mais importantes segmentos econômicos no Brasil. Os hotéis são prestadores de serviços turísticos que causam significativos impactos ambientais, modificando os espaços socioambientais. O presente artigo, oriundo de pesquisa qualitativa, com característica exploratória e descritiva, tem como objetivo principal identificar, por meio de pesquisa bibliográfica e das iniciativas de mercado, se os operadores hoteleiros brasileiros vêm adotando práticas de gestão ambiental em seus negócios, bem como sistemas de gestão ambiental certificáveis. A pesquisa tenciona ainda destacar os principais benefícios que os programas de Gestão Ambiental oferecem à operação hoteleira no país. Conclui-se que nos empreendimentos hoteleiros brasileiros há pouca adesão a programas de Gestão Ambiental e dentre seus gestores poucos têm a questão ambiental como oportunidade de mercado ou como um elemento obrigatório nas agendas administrativa e operacional, na promoção da longevidade e sucesso da organização.Environmental Management Systems in Hotel Operation - The tourism is one of the most important economic sectors in the country. Hotels are providers of tourist services that cause significant impacts modifying the social and environmental areas. This qualitative research based on exploratory and descriptive methods aims at identifying by market initiatives and literature review, if the Brazilian hotel operators are adopting environmental management practices in their business even as certified environmental management systems. The research also aims at highlighting some benefits arising from environmental management programs to the hotel operation in Brazil. We conclude that environmental management programs are not widespread in Brazilian hotel sector. Only some hotel managers are awake for environmental issue as a market opportunity or a mandatory factor in the administrative and operational schedules for ensuring

  11. Shakespeare Re-Read, Re-Written, Re-Contextualised Or... Re-Placed in Opera and Musical

    Full Text Available Shakespeare thrives not only in the theatre, but also through what Bolter and Grusin call remediation. This article analyses how opera and musical reread Elizabethan drama shifting from spoken to sung discourse and travelling transnationally, temporally and across genres. Its main approach is comparative and relies on the history of mentalities. Rereading is dictated by cultural context, the conventions of the lyrical theatre, social and political factors and reception. Gender is reread in Bellini‘s I Capuleti e i Montecchi and in Britten‘s A Midsummer Night‟s Dream, and religion - in Gounod‘s Roméo et Juliette and Bernstein‘s West Side Story. Cultural and historical barriers enjoin recontextualisation: the English, French and Welsh verbal fun in The Merry Wives is metamorphosed into Germ-Italian in Salieri‘s Vienna, while prayer is bowdlerised in Bentoiu‘s Hamlet written in communist Romania. Porter‘s Kiss Me, Kate rewrites The Taming of the Shrew in a post-modern musical avant la lettre featuring the cast of a theatre company on- and off-stage. However, operas such as Rossini‘s Otello or Thomas‘s Hamlet are shown to have almost replaced Shakespeare‘s initial message. The article emphasises the idea that operations of rereading and rewriting, in a musical context, significantly enrich the ample panoply of Shakespearean adaptations.

  13. Of Lady-killers and ‘Men Dressed As Women’: Soap Opera, Scapegoats and the Mexico City Police Department

    2008-02-01

    Full Text Available Over two days in October 2005, police in Mexico City conducted a series of raids on male-to-female transgender (travesti prostitutes working in the streets. The motive of the investigation was not related to sex work at all, but rather, the hunt for a serial killer responsible for the deaths of elderly women between 2003 and 2005. With few leads apart from reports by a couple of eyewitnesses that they had seen ‘a man dressed as a woman’ enter the houses of the victims, the Chief Public Prosecutor announced that the killer could be a travesti. On January 25, 2006, the ‘lady-killer’ was finally discovered to be neither a ‘man dressed as a woman’, nor a travesti. The suspect, a female former lucha libre wrestler, Juana Barraza, was taken into custody. In the period leading up to the October raids, Mexico’s chief television channel, Televisa, finished up the season of its popular soap, La Madrastra, with a plot line that features a man who dresses as a woman to disguise his usual male identity and kill his female victims. This paper examines the case, looking at the influence of the soap opera narrative in the profiling of travestis as suspect ‘men dressed as women’. It draws on studies of soap opera and mass media forms in Mexican society, as well as the work of transgender theory in understanding how crossgender identities are circumscribed by discourse.

  14. Singer's preferred acoustic condition in performance in an opera house and self-perception of the singer's voice

    Noson, Dennis; Kato, Kosuke; Ando, Yoichi

    2004-05-01

    Solo singers have been shown to over estimate the relative sound pressure level of a delayed, external reproduction of their own voice, singing single syllables, which, in turn, appears to influence the preferred delay of simulated stage reflections [Noson, Ph.D. thesis, Kobe University, 2003]. Bone conduction is thought to be one factor separating singer versus instrumental performer judgments of stage acoustics. Using a parameter derived from the vocal signal autocorrelation function (ACF envelope), the changes in singer preference for delayed reflections is primarily explained by the ACF parameter, rather than internal bone conduction. An auditory model of a singer's preferred reflection delay is proposed, combining the effects of acoustical environment (reflection amplitude), bone conduction, and performer vocal overestimate, which may be applied to the acoustic design of reflecting elements in both upstage and forestage environments of opera stages. For example, soloists who characteristically underestimate external voice levels (or overestimate their own voice) should be provided shorter distances to reflective panels-irrespective of their singing style. Adjustable elements can be deployed to adapt opera houses intended for bel canto style performances to other styles. Additional examples will also be discussed. a)Now at Kumamoto Univ., Kumamoto, Japan. b)Now at: 1-10-27 Yamano Kami, Kumamoto, Japan.

    Full Text Available Tendo em vista as mudanças na sociedade moderna, decorrentes especialmente das novas tecnologias de informação e comunicação (TIC`s, e a intensificação do processo de globalização, as organizações têm buscado atualizar suas tecnologias, processos e ferramentas de trabalho, garantindo competitividade e posição favorável no mercado atuante. Neste contexto, uma das estratégias utilizadas é a terceirização das atividades que não são inerentes ao objetivo final da organização, dentre as quais se caracterizam os serviços logísticos. No Brasil, anualmente, são gastos cerca de R$ 192 bilhões, ou 11,7% do Produto Interno Bruto Nacional, com logística. Deste montante, aproximadamente 63% são direcionados para pagamento de terceiros, ou seja, para os prestadores de serviços logísticos. Considerando-se esta representatividade do setor para a economia nacional, o presente trabalho teve como objetivo demonstrar os motivos que conduzem as empresas a optarem pela terceirização dos serviços de distribuição logística, segundo a visão de um coordenador de operações logísticas. Para tanto, foi realizada uma pesquisa qualitativa básica a partir de entrevista, com a utilização de um roteiro semiestruturadojunto ao coordenador de operações logística da AGV Logística, responsável pelas operações da empresa aqui denominada Betha. Segundo o entrevistado, a empresa Betha opta em terceirizar seus serviços logísticos visando redução nos custos de contratação e manutenção predial, desenvolvimento e manutenção de mão de obra qualificada, investimento em tecnologia de informação e em equipamentos de movimentação. Além dos custos, outras razões para a terceirização são o maior foco no negócio e a flexibilidade operacional.

    Full Text Available O mercado de derivativos vem ganhando importância no contexto econômico mundial, demandando procedimentos contábeis que evidenciem corretamente os riscos e os benefícios envolvidos em tais operações. Desta maneira, este artigo mostra e discute aspectos da contabilização de operações de hedge, utilizando como base para análise, dois instrumentos utilizados com a finalidade de hedge no agronegócio brasileiro: a Cédula de Produto Rural (CPR e os contratos futuros agropecuários. Através de pesquisa bibliográfica, foram estudados os procedimentos do Hedging Accounting, segundo a normatização do FASB, e da CVM. Através do desenvolvimento de um exemplo teórico foram analisados e discutidos estes procedimentos, comparando as divergências de critérios entre as normas dos dois órgãos citados, e o impacto destes na análise das demonstrações financeiras tanto do produtor rural como da agroindústria. Esta análise demonstra que há divergências significativas na evidenciação destes instrumentos, principalmente dos contratos futuros, entre as normas analisadas. Ja para a CPR, foi proposta uma contabilização segundo o conceito de "derivativo embutido", conceito este contemplado pelo próprio FASB para alguns contratos com características híbridas. Existe uma necessidade de adequação das normas da CVM ao FASB, visto a importância de evidenciar estas operações no "corpo"do balanço, tanto no aspecto de exposição ao risco, como para a comparando de estratégias diferentes de proteção. No entanto, analisando somente dois títulos, fica evidente a dificuldade da adequação das normas brasileiras ao FASB.

    2017-01-01

    Very highly efficient filters containing a porous glass fibre fabric are used in industrial installations to trap radioactive or toxic particles in order to limit their release, notably in accidental situations. Thus this set of articles discusses various issues related to the use of such filters. A first one describes how air radioactivity is continuously monitored by two coexisting networks: Opera-Air and Teleray. It indicates where air radioactivity comes from, and how the origin of a release can be determined, and outlines the importance of modelling tools. Air monitoring about the Gravelines nuclear power plant is briefly presented with a drawing. A second article comments the existence of numerous tools which are used as information channels about the monitoring of air radioactivity: web sites, mobile application, and so on. The last article briefly describes the journey of a filter from its removal on a Monday to a complete and validated analysis which lasts between two and four weeks

  20. Neural networks, cellular automata, and robust approach applications for vertex localization in the opera target tracker detector

    2005-01-01

    A neural-network (NN) approach for neutrino interaction vertex reconstruction in the OPERA experiment with the help of the Target Tracker (TT) detector is described. A feed-forward NN with the standard back propagation option is used. The energy functional minimization of the network is performed by the method of conjugate gradients. Data preprocessing by means of cellular automaton algorithm is performed. The Hough transform is applied for muon track determination and the robust fitting method is used for shower axis reconstruction. A comparison of the proposed approach with earlier studies, based on the use of the neural network package SNNS, shows their similar performance. The further development of the approach is underway

    2017-12-01

    During the eighteenth century, several towns located in what is known today as the Suisse romande were extremely receptive toward scientific culture, and most notably Newtonianism. In this paper I deal with a nine-volume publication of Newton's Opera Omnia that was planned in Geneva and Lausanne during the late 1730s and 1740s. This publication has not received the attention it deserves. To the best of my knowledge, even an awareness of its existence is lacking in the literature devoted to the reception of Newtonianism. This paper examines the circumstances of the publication of a complete set of all of Newton's works known at the time, and the motivations of the editors, mathematicians, and publishers who were involved in this editorial enterprise.

    TheOPERAexperiment, designed to perform the first observation of ν{sub μ} → ν{sub τ} oscillations in appearance mode through the detection of the τ leptons produced in ν{sub τ} charged current interactions, has collected data from 2008 to 2012. In the present paper, the procedure developed to detect τ particle decays, occurring over distances of the order of 1mm from the neutrino interaction point, is described in detail and applied to the search for charmed hadrons, showing similar decay topologies as the τ lepton. In the analysed sample, 50 charm decay candidate events are observed while 54 ± 4 are expected, proving that the detector performance and the analysis chain applied to neutrino events are well reproduced by the OPERA simulation and thus validating the methods for ν{sub τ} appearance detection.

    To clarify the relationship of the sound fields between the stage and the orchestra pit, we conducted acoustical measurements in a typical historical opera house, the Teatro Comunale of Ferrara, Italy. Orthogonal factors based on the theory of subjective preference and other related factors were analyzed. First, the sound fields for a singer on the stage in relation to the musicians in the pit were analyzed. And then, the sound fields for performers in the pit in relation to the singers on the stage were considered. Because physical factors vary depending on the location of the sound source, performers can move on the stage or in the pit to find the preferred sound field.

    The OPERA spectrometer is built from two large dipoles instrumented with around 1000 Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs), covering a surface of about 3350 m 2 , and digitally read out by means of almost 27000 strips. The huge number of channels, the inaccessibility of many parts of the detector and the wide uncertainty about the signal amplitude pushed to study a low cost, high sensitivity discriminator, and a very carefully designed layout for the read out system. Here we will present a novel application of LVDS line receiver as discriminator, showing that it exceeds the requirements of a large RPC based detector and offers the intrinsic advantages of a mature technology in terms of costs, reliability and integration scale. We will also present the layout of the read out system showing as the sensitivity and the noise immunity were preserved in a system where the front end electronics is far away from the detector.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Depression is common in residents of Residential and Nursing homes (RNHs. It is usually undetected and often undertreated. Depression is associated with poor outcomes including increased morbidity and mortality. Exercise has potential to improve depression, and has been shown in existing trials to improve outcomes among younger and older people. Existing evidence comes from trials that are short, underpowered and not from RNH settings. The aim of the OPERA trial is to establish whether exercise is effective in reducing the prevalence of depression among older RNH residents. Method OPERA is a cluster randomised controlled trial. RNHs are randomised to one of two groups with interventions lasting 12 months Intervention group: a depression awareness and physical activity training session for care home staff, plus a whole home physical activation programme including twice weekly physiotherapist-led exercise groups. The intervention lasts for one year from randomisation, or Control group: a depression awareness training session for care home staff. Participants are people aged 65 or over who are free of severe cognitive impairment and willing to participate in the study. Our primary outcome is the prevalence of depressive symptoms, a GDS-15 score of five or more, in all participants at the end of the one year intervention period. Our secondary depression outcomes include remission of depressive symptoms and change in GDS-15 scores in those with depressive symptoms prior to randomisation. Other secondary outcomes include, fear of falling, mobility, fractures, pain, cognition, costs and health related quality of life. We aimed to randomise 77 RNHs. Discussion Home recruitment was completed in May 2010; 78 homes have been randomised. Follow up will finish in May 2011 and results will be available late 2011.

    Full Text Available Although the last three decades have seen a steady rise in the perceived importance of operations strategy together with its corresponding literature base, one could argue that it has not yet reached its full potential. This paper reviews some of the reasons why this may be. It starts by briefly examining the importance of operations strategy within the broader operations management area and then examines some challenges to the subject under two headings. The first heading concerns whether operations strategy accurately reflects the nature of 'operations' within the economy. The second heading examines some of the challenges in making any operations-based topic into one that has strategic relevance. Finally, a number of prescriptions are put forward that may allow the development of the subject to answer some of the challenges posed.Embora nas últimas três décadas tenha sido constatado um constante crescimento na percepção de importância da área de estratégia de operações, juntamente com a sua respectiva base literária, pode-se argumentar que ela ainda não atingiu todo o seu potencial. Este artigo revisa algumas das razões pelas quais isto pode estar ocorrendo. Inicialmente, a importância da estratégia de operações dentro da área mais ampla de gestão de operações é analisada de forma sucinta e em seguida, alguns desafios são explorados em duas vertentes. A primeira trata se estratégia de operações reflete precisamente a natureza das operações dentro da economia. A segunda explora alguns dos desafios em tornar tópicos relacionados a operações em tópicos com importância estratégica. Por fim, são propostas algumas prescrições que podem apoiar o desenvolvimento da área de modo a responder a alguns dos desafios apresentados.

Por muy distintos que sean los protagonistas de todas estas novelas, los planteos que surgen al narrar cómo cada uno de ellos se convierte en escritor guardan una estrecha relación con la poética del propio César Aira. La figuración de la escritura de una opera prima prolonga y completa una reflexión ya iniciada anteriormente, por ejemplo en el diálogo que las primeras novelas de Aira entablan con los textos fundadores de la literatura argentina, en el diálogo con el Génesis bíblico propuesto por El congreso de literatura y en las páginas que El vestido rosa consagra a la cuestión del comienzo de la ficción, páginas que Diario de la hepatitis y Fragmento de un diario en los Alpes desarrollan y enriquecen en las décadas siguientes.La figuration de l’écriture d’une opera prima est une des formes adoptées par la réflexion sur le commencement dans la fiction de de César Aira.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Part of the history of the National Theatre in Belgrade in the decade before the First World War relates to processes of discontinuity in the professionalization and modernization of the musical section in this institution and its repertoire. It had to do with abrupt changes reflected in three short-lived phases: improvements in musical ensemble and opera performances (1906-1909, the annulment of these efforts and results with a return to the old repertoire, and then again a new beginning once more with a fresh attempt to establish the Opera (1913-14. These dynamics were affected by the social and political context. It was dependent on frequent changes of the Theatre’s management staff whose main representatives had mutually conflicting views on important questions concerning the functioning of their institution. Relations between them were strongly marked by contested political motives. Theatre managers were appointed by ministers of education who could also be relieved of their posts, and members of the management staff were always active in political parties. These facts acted as a decisive factor in their communication which was similar to the behaviour and customs of public political life where an opponent is seen as an enemy, not as a partner in solving common problems. Critical and polemical discourses on important aspects of organization and programme strategy of the Theatre were burdened by political rivalry which also found its place in discussions on the cultivation of music. Questions relating to music were considered in a declarative way, so that music was instrumentalized as a means of political empowerment. The facts about music in the National Theatre raise many issues related to aspects of modernization, national identification, transfers of „high“ and popular musical cultures as well as to other problems of social, historical and cultural contexts that were intertwined in the operation of the Theatre.

    Neutrino oscillations, based on a change of flavor state of a neutrino during its propagation, can explain the deficits observed on solar and atmospheric neutrinos and provide some interesting indications for physics beyond the Standard Model by studying the mixing angles and the hierarchy of neutrino mass. The OPERA experiment is the first experiment designed to observe the appearance of a ν τ by the oscillation of the ν μ to ν τ in the CNGS beam from CERN to Gran Sasso. OPERA is a hybrid detector combining both the technique of an on time electronic detection and the technique of emulsion cloud chamber (ECC). The ECC detector is a passive detector (target) of 150.000 bricks, each one consisting of sheets of lead, used as target, alternating with nuclear photographic emulsions whose accuracy of track reconstruction is about one micron. The detector also includes two spectrometers with magnetized iron plates 5 cm thick alternating with RPC (resistive plate chamber) associated with six sets of drift tubes for the measurement of the charge and momentum of the muon. It includes also a Veto plane used for rejection of particles coming outside the target. This detector simultaneously allows a high spatial resolution and a large target mass which are two very conditions necessary for collecting charged current neutrino interactions from oscillated ν τ and observing the decay topology of τ. This thesis presents a study on tau decay in the muonic channel. It has contributed to 1) the development of an algorithm for the selection of the neutrino interactions in the target, 2) the studies on the muon identification in electronic detectors and the connection of its trace with those reconstructed in the emulsions, which represent a fundamental point both for the tau signal identification as the rejection of charmed background, 3) the development of a neural network to discriminate the signal from the charmed background regardless of the muon identification in

    Love, Sex, and Choices (LSC) is a soap opera video series created to reduce HIV sex risk in women. LSC was compared to text messages in a randomized trial in 238 high-risk mostly Black young urban women. 117 received 12-weekly LSC videos, 121 received 12-weekly HIV prevention messages on smartphones. Changes in unprotected sex with high risk partners were compared by mixed models. Unprotected sex with high risk men significantly declined over 6 months post-intervention for both arms, from 21-22 acts to 5-6 (p video over the text arm, though this difference was not statistically significant. However, the LSC was highly popular and viewers wanted the series to continue. This is the first study to report streaming soap opera video episodes to reduce HIV risk on smartphones. LSC holds promise as an Internet intervention that could be scaled-up and combined with HIV testing. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines the role played by opera during the nineteenth century in Mexico and Brazil, with views to start a joint reflection on these two Latin American countries based on the career of two musicians: the Brazilian Carlos Gomes and the Mexican Melesio Morales. This essay does not aspire to be a paper on comparative history, let alone on musicology. It rather  seeks to sketch an anal- ysis in the line of the “connected histories” introduced by Sanjay Subrahmanayam. My starting points are the bonds that tied Mexico, Brazil and Italy during the nineteenth century in the field of opera. The rivalry between these two musicians made us bring together and relate two rarely compared histories, two pasts, and two historiographies.

    Full Text Available In this article, we describe part of an action research project carried out during a classroom-based art course at a higher education institution. We gave the students themed collaborative drawing assignments, with the purpose of achieving a rich picture of what they associated with the notion of “going to the opera”. They completed assignments before and after attending a guided tour and a ballet performance at a famous opera house. We aimed to address two main research questions: a How can the students’ understanding of opera and ballet develop through their experience of a ballet performance? and b How can drawing activities in the classroom support collaborative learning and the students’ personal development? The data gathered involved three main elements: 1 the rich pictures themselves, 2 the teachers’ observations of the students and 3 the students’ reflections on the process. The study points towards a significant transformation of the students’ representation of the concept of opera, as illustrated in their drawings. We discuss how the students’ drawings may reflect their development in terms of attitude and their newly acquired knowledge of an artistic genre they knew little about, and suggest new avenues for further research.

    Full Text Available Petar Konjović (Čurug, May 5, 1883 - Belgrade, October 1, 1970 stands out among Serbian composers as an author of instrumental and vocal compositions. Studies at the Prague Conservatory (1904-1906 acquainted Konjović with Czech music, Wagner's opus, and the Russian national-romantic school, which contributed to the evolution of his talent for both music and stage, enabling him to express his ideas more explicitly in operatic works. It was in the Prague that the second opera - Prince of Zeta - was conceived, with new musical vividness and dramatic appeal (first version composed 1906-1926, the second and final 1929-1939, followed by Koštana (1928, Peasants (1951 and Fatherland (1960. Konjović's mature operas are characterized by his masterful handling of form, both in close-ups and in detail, as well as his deeply individual assimilation of musical folklore into his work. The Prince of Zeta is not to be understood as a folk opera, but some main themes are directly derived from folk music, precisely from the Montenegrin folk songs quoted in the Mokranjac's Ninth Garland and treated in Konjović's post-romantic, almost expressionistic way, interwoven with some Italianate leitmotifs, so as to present the opera's two worlds, Montenegrin and Venetian. In the process of forming Konjović's operatic style, with vocal parts based mainly on the principle of declamation, the opera Prince of Zeta (first performed in Belgrade, 1929, conducted by Lovro von Matačić proved to be a work of great impact. Hardly anyone grasped then the wide sweep of inspiration which allowed the composer to set and to solve several important problems connected with music drama, essential also in his subsequent stage works. First of all, Konjović had to handle in his own way the verbal drama the prototype of his opera, Maxim Crnojević by the Serbian poet Laza Kostić (1841-1910. Permission came from the playwright in the first decade of the 1900, Prince of Zeta being partly

    The OPERA detector, designed to search for ν{sub μ} → ν{sub τ} oscillations in the CNGS beam, is located in the underground Gran Sasso laboratory, a privileged location to study TeV-scale cosmic rays. For the analysis here presented, the detector was used to measure the atmospheric muon charge ratio in the TeV region. OPERA collected charge separated cosmic ray data between 2008 and 2012. More than 3 million atmospheric muon events were detected and reconstructed, among which about 110000 multiple muon bundles. The charge ratio R{sub μ} ≡ N{sub μ+}/N{sub μ-} was measured separately for single and for multiple muon events. The analysis exploited the inversion of the magnet polarity which was performed on purpose during the 2012 Run. The combination of the two data sets with opposite magnet polarities allowed minimizing systematic uncertainties and reaching an accurate determination of the muon charge ratio. Data were fitted to obtain relevant parameters on the composition of primary cosmic rays and the associated kaon production in the forward fragmentation region. In the surface energy range 1-20 TeV investigated by OPERA, R{sub μ} is well described by a parametric model including only pion and kaon contributions to the muon flux, showing no significant contribution of the prompt component. The energy independence supports the validity of Feynman scaling in the fragmentation region up to 200 TeV/nucleon primary energy. (orig.)

  7. Oscillations des neutrinos sur et hors faisceau : étude des performances du système d'acquisition d'OPERA

    CERN Document Server

    Brugière, Timothée

    OPERA (" Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus ") is a neutrino beam experiment located in hall C of the Gran Sasso underground laboratory (LNGS), in Italia, under a equivalent of 3.8 km water (corresponding to a cut at 1.5 TeV for the muons). The first purpose of OPERA is the direct observation of the νμ ➝ ντ oscillation in the atmospheric sector observing an ντ appearance 730 km away from the target in a quasi pure νμ beam (CNGS). OPERA is an hybrid detector with an instrumented target part (~125 000 bricks made with emulsion and lead sheets) and a spectrometer. The data taking have started in 2006 and 55 000 events have been registred. The first ντ candidate have been observed this year. The work done during this thesis is oriented around three main topics : Define the trigger rules of the target tracker acquisition system for beam neutrino events, synchronise target tracker and RPC elements, implement the results inside the simulation and the study of the feasibility of an atmos...

    Full Text Available Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD and atrial fibrillation (AF are widespread diseases and have multiple common risk factors and comorbidities. No studies of association between ultrasonography-diagnosed NAFLD and AF exist in other than diabetic population. The goal of this prospective study was to study the value of NAFLD as a predictor of atrial fibrillation. This study had 958 subjects from the OPERA (Oulu Project Elucidating Risk of Atherosclerosis cohort, and the mean follow-up time was 16.3 years. NAFLD was diagnosed if the subject had fatty liver in ultrasonography and no excess alcohol intake. AF was followed in the National Registers. In this study 249 subjects (26.0% had NAFLD and 37 (14.9% of these had AF whereas only 56 (7.9% of those without NAFLD experienced AF during the follow-up time (p = 0.001. In the multiple Cox regression analysis including potential confounders (age, sex, study group, diabetes, body mass index (BMI, waist circumference, alcohol consumption, smoking, serum alanine aminotransferase concentration (ALT, systolic blood pressure, quick index, left ventricular mass index, left atrial diameter, coronary artery disease (CAD, atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP and high sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP, NAFLD remained as an independent predictor of AF (Adjusted OR, 1.88 (95% Confidence interval (CI 1.03-3.45. In conclusion, our data shows that NAFLD is independently associated with the risk of AF.

    The National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) project is planning upgrades to the toroidal field, plasma current and pulse length. This involves the replacement of the center-stack, including the inner legs of the TF, OH, and inner PF coils. A second neutral beam will also be added. The increased performance of the upgrade requires qualification of the remaining components including the vessel, passive plates, and divertor for higher disruption loads. The hardware needing qualification is more complex than is typically accessible by large scale electromagnetic (EM) simulations of the plasma disruptions. The usual method is to include simplified representations of components in the large EM models and attempt to extract forces to apply to more detailed models. This paper describes a more efficient approach of combining comprehensive modeling of the plasma and tokamak conducting structures, using the 2D OPERA code, with much more detailed treatment of individual components using ANSYS electromagnetic (EM) and mechanical analysis. This capture local eddy currents and resulting loads in complex details, and allows efficient non-linear, and dynamic structural analyses.

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available Il saggio considera l'esperienza politica degli intellettuali cinesi e americani in Chinese Opera (1998, romanzo breve dello scrittore americano di discendenza cinese Alex Kuo. Il suo protagonista, compiendo un viaggio dagli Stati Uniti alla Cina nei mesi immediatamente precedenti alle dimostrazioni di piazza Tiananmen, intraprende un cammino alla ricerca della sua storia familiare, e delle ragioni che hanno spinto il padre all'esilio. Intellettuale e musicista, a cavallo tra due realtà di attivismo politico che hanno esercitato il loro peso nel definire o nello smantellare, a seconda delle prospettive, proprio i concetti di appartenenza, il protagonista sceglie e fa proprio l'impegno sul piano transnazionale, ma a partire da una consolidata quanto rivendicata consapevolezza della propria individualità. La letteratura e l'arte sono il punto focale in grado di esprimere una tensione tra l'individuo e la collettività che ritorna con una declinazione diversa in entrambi i sistemi socio-politici. Il romanzo, dunque, propone un soggetto politicizzato ma non contenibile all'interno di alcuna coordinata discorsiva pre-scritta. A sua volta, il discorso politico nel testo letterario, costruito nel senso della double critique di Khatibi, intreccia la dimensione pubblica e privata dell'intellettuale con le significazioni etniche, nazionali e transnazionali.

    Full Text Available While other American plays such as Elmer Rice’s Street Scene, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, and Eugene O’Neill’s Mourning Becomes Electra have made the journey from stage to film and finally to opera, the film and operatic versions were faithful recreations of the original without the addition of new characters, including those from other works by the same playwright.  Lillian Hellman’s best play, The Little Foxes (1939, is unusual in two respects: in the 1941 film version, a character is added who did not appear in the original in order to provide a love interest for the protagonist’s daughter, thereby resulting in a different ending;  in the 1949 operatic version, a character from a later play by Hellman, Another Part of the Forest, is introduced to show how a young woman with romantic ideals evolved into the Lady Macbeth of American drama. Thus each version of The Little Foxes deepens our understanding of the original without altering the play’s dramatic impact.

  14. Timing calibration of the trigger system for the drift tube detector of the OPERA neutrino oscillation experiment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lenkeit, Jan

    2015-11-01

    The OPERA experiment searches for ν μ → ν τ oscillations in an almost pure ν μ beam. The goal is to observe the oscillations in appearance mode by using a large-scale lead/emulsion target to resolve individual ν τ interactions. Magnetic spectrometers measure the charge and momentum of beam induced muons leaving the target sections. The Precision Tracker, a drift tube detector consisting of almost 10000 drift tubes, provides the tracking information inside the spectrometers. The coordinate measurement in the drift tubes is derived from a time measurement relative to an external trigger signal. In order to reach the required momentum resolution of less than 25 % for particle momenta up to 25 GeV, the uncertainty on the trigger timing must not exceed a value of 5 ns. In this thesis, a procedure for the timing calibration of the trigger system is presented. A step-by-step calibration of the corresponding signal paths is described. Applying all calibration results, a spatial resolution of 255 μm is achieved for the Precision Tracker, meeting the specified requirements. Furthermore, a method using the calibrated trigger system for performing time of flight measurements with atmospheric muons is developed. The average error on the measured flight times is ±4.5 ns.

    Robert Holzer

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available My title pays homage to a recent volume of essays edited by Ellen Rosand and devoted to the scholarship and performance of Francesco Cavalli’s operas. Yet if love of wordplay inspired it, coincidence confirmed it. The volume appeared in print just months after my own foray into editing, albeit of a very different kind. I had been asked to prepare one of the volumes of The Oxford Anthology of Western Music, specifically the part that deals with Baroque music. As its title suggests, the anthology accompanies The Oxford History of Western Music: College Edition, the one-volume abridgement of Richard Taruskin’s five-volume behemoth prepared by Christopher H. Gibbs. I was charged with assembling scores of the works discussed therein and writing commentary on them, based on Taruskin’s own in the larger text. While I was left free to do as I pleased with the latter, such was not the case with the former. Thus music after 1700 occupies more pages than that before 1700, and the earlier repertory features some notable lacunae. That one of the biggest is Francesco Cavalli comes as no surprise, for in the course of the more than 3,800 pages of Taruskin’s original the composer receives exactly three sentences.

  18. "Exoticism” in the opera Gilgamesh by Rudolf Brucci in Ralph Locke’s “All the music in the full context” paradigm

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sovtić Nemanja

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available In this text, Rudolf Brucci’s opera Gilgamesh is viewed in the light of Ralph Locke’s “All the Music in the Full Context” Paradigm which promotes the approach that one should search for the exotic elements in musical works first in the discursive components (title, program, accompanying notes, visual representations (costume, scenery and a “horizon of expectations” of a particular culture, and only then to observe exoticism as the aspect of a musical style. In the light of this Paradigm, “exoticism” of the opera Gilgamesh is detected at the level of the music material and compositional procedures, but not in the dramaturgical profiling of characters, narrative adaptation of the Sumerian epic, costumes and scenery. The plot, costumes and the scenery of the opera do not construct the Orient with either positive or negative projections attributed to it by the Western European Orientalist discourse, but portray Gilgamesh and Enkidu as ancient mythic protagonists on the margin of the (not-always exoticist once/now binarism. The musical language of the opera, which abounds in the usage of oriental musical scales and citations, indicates that oriental/exotic was one of the author’s “target levels” when conceiving and composing Gilgamesh. Brucci, however, did not build the “ethnological model” in his opera, but gave oriental scales and “exotic” musical citations their meaning within the Western musical tradition, which is why his approach can be compared with the “veiled exoticism” of the French composers of the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. In the light of the self/other binarism, reaching for the exotic in Gilgamesh can be presented as an auto-exotic creative behavior of Brucci as a composer who perceives his “minority identity” in a relation to an imaginary referential system of the Center. However, I am more inclined to see Brucci’s identificational intention in his advocacy of the

    The organization of health care establishments and perioperative care are essential for ensuring the quality of care and safety of patients undergoing outpatient surgery. In order to correctly inventory these organizations and practices, in 2013-2014, the French society of anaesthesia and intensive care organized an extensive practical survey in French ambulatory surgery units entitled the "OPERA" study (Organisation periopératoire de l'anesthésie en chirurgie ambulatoire). From among all of the ambulatory surgery centres listed by the Agences régionales de santé (Regional health agencies, France), 206 public and private centres were randomly selected. A structural (typology, organization) survey and a medical-practice survey (focusing on the management of postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting as well as the prevention of venous thromboembolism) were collected and managed by a prospective audit of practices occurring on two randomly selected days. The latter was further accompanied by an additional audit specifically focussing on ten representative procedures: (1) stomatology surgery (third molar removal); (2) knee arthroscopy; (3) surgery of the abdominal wall (including inguinal hernia); (4) perianal surgery; (5) varicose vein surgery; (6) digestive laparoscopy-cholecystectomy; (7) breast surgery (tumourectomy); (8) uterine surgery; (9) hallux valgus and (10) hand surgery (excluding carpal tunnel). Over the 2 days of observation, 7382 patients were included comprising 2174 patients who underwent one of the procedures from the above list. The analysis of these data will provide an overview of the organization of health establishments, the modalities thus supported and compliance with standards.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available The essay describes the conditions and process of the supply of timber from the forests managed by Opera of Santa Maria del Fiore during the construction of Brunelleschi’s dome. Furthermore it analyzes the employ of wooden structural elements in support of the building’s masonry and for scaffolding and other temporary apparatuses devised by the Florentine architect. The numerous supply contracts and payments allocated to the haulage contractors reveal the route followed by wooden materials from the forest to building yard and allow the identification of the various types of labor involved in the felling of trees, the preparation of logs and their transport. These documents specify the amount of timber ordered from each hauler and, in some cases, even the linear and volumetric dimensions of the wooden elements ordered by Opera. Such information has permitted the formulation of hypotheses about the structure and dimensions of temporary wooden scaffolding. The number of logs ordered, calculated year by year and related to the successive phases of the construction, reflect the changing requirements of wood for the building process as well as the political and economic situation of the city of Florence (wars, financial crises during the two decades of the construction of the cathedral’s great cupola. The resolutions of the consuls of Wool Guild and the Opera wardens regarding the forest administration testify to the existence of a bureaucratic structure charged with overseeing the woodland heritage. These sources vividly render the difficulties encountered in reconciling the intense exploitation of the forest for economic ends with the livelihood of the local population and, at the same time, with the necessity of ensuring the regeneration of a precious but exhaustible resource entrusted to the Opera’s care.

    Tunisia is a country in which three quarters of the territory is arid to semi-arid with limited water resources. Decreasing water scarcity and water pollution constitute a big challenge for water stakeholders particularly in rural areas and poor communities. The main factors influencing water availability in this Mediterranean country is, among others, overexploitation of non-renewable resources and diffuse pollution. Due to intensive agriculture in proximity of rivers and continuous use of pesticides, there is a potential risk for contamination of waterbodies by the agrochemicals used. This could have a negative impact on agricultural production as well as human health and threaten in priority the north part of the country where 82% of surface water is available. Despite this situation, no catchment monitoring program is currently put in place since it is expensive and require large investment. In this study, we established a methodology using the PegOpera modeling tool to assess the potential risk of pesticides contamination of surface water at the scale of a rural catchment situated in the northwestern part of Tunisia, the Joumine basin, draining an area of 418 km2 and devoted to agriculture, mainly rainfed cereal crops. In the downstream part of the basin, the Joumine dam was built in 1984 to provide water for irrigation and drinking purposes. We performed a survey with catchment farmers to report management practices in the area as well as spatial and temporal information about pesticide compounds, timing and application rate from which we identified the most used pesticide molecules. The SIRIS method (System of Integration of Risk with Interactions of Scores) was applied to classify compounds used according to the risk that they present to the aquatic environment and therefore to identify those chemicals that should be monitored (Guerbet et al., 2002; Le Gall et al., 2007). According to the results of this classification, we selected 6 molecules to study in

  16. The Ghost-Image on Metropolitan Borders—In Terms of Phantom of the Opera and 19th-Century Metropolis Paris

    Full Text Available This paper reviews Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera in the context of the social and cultural changes of the metropolis Paris at the end of the 19th century. The Phantom of the Opera, a success in the literary world and widely proliferated in its musical and film renditions afterward, is considered and interpreted mainly in the literary and artistic tradition. In this paper, however, this work will be considered from an urban sociological perspective, especially from that of Walter Benjamin, who developed the theory of the urban culture, focusing on the dreaming collectives at the end of the 19th century. Leroux’s novel can be regarded as an exemplary social form of the collective dreams of the period expressed in arts, architectures, popular stories and films and other popular arts. Given the premise that the dream images in the novel, so-called kitsch, reflect the fears and desires of the bourgeois middle class that were pathologized in the figure of the ghost, this paper reveals the cultural, social and transnational implications of the Ghost-Image in relation to the rapidly changing borders of the 19th century metropolis.

  17. Facilitating Public Access to the Arts: Applying the Motivation, Opportunity, and Ability Framework to the Case of the UK Royal Opera House

    Full Text Available In recent years, arts organizations in the UK have faced challenging times due to severe funding cuts from government and depressed box office sales during the recession. In the UK’s current cultural policy, ‘social impacts’ of the arts are highly emphasized and state interventions are intensified both in terms of finance and legitimacy. What is necessary for arts organizations to produce social impacts is their active provision of ‘deliberate extra activities’, which are generally conducted in the form of education, community, participation or outreach programs. The Royal Opera House (ROH case study provides an apt example of how to exercise these activities effectively to deliver social impacts. Based on Rothchild’s theoretical Motivation, Opportunity, and Ability (MOA framework, this study aims to find out how the UK Royal Opera House stimulated motivation among arts audiences and facilitated opportunities for them, thereby allowed them to translate motivation into action. The results show that the ROH implemented several specific strategies: ‘interest triggerings,’ ‘value creation and transmission,’ relationship building and management,’ and education. These strategies can motivate potential arts consumers to be familiar with classic arts, which lowers psychological barriers and stimulates intrinsic motivation to satisfy long-lasting and self-sustaining cultural needs.

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available This article deals with Harrison Birtwistle’s opera Gawain (1991. Written on a libretto by the English poet, David Harsent, Gawain is characterized both by national and extra-national elements. The most obvious national features are to be found in the subject of the opera based on the famous English medieval epic poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. They are also displayed in the references to Shakespeare, to other British composers (Michael Tippett and Henry Purcell for instance and to typical English musical or musico-dramatic forms such as the masque. As far as the foreign borrowings or influences are concerned, Harrison Birtwistle’s debt to composers like Richard Wagner, Igor Stravinsky and Olivier Messiaen is once more displayed in Gawain. Other influences are shown through his translation into music of aesthetic ideas inspired by the great German painter Paul Klee and through his adaptation of elements taken from Greek tragedy. One can thus wonder if this fusion or juxtaposition of vernacular and foreign elements is not one of the key features of Gawain.

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available From 1946 the artist John Piper designed sets for eight of Benjamin Britten’s operas. In this article, John Piper’s contribution to the renaissance of English opera is considered in the wider context of the artistic and political reconstruction of England after the Second World War. During the War, Piper was one of the artists who redefined Englishness. As an abstract artist turned architectural painter, he created a pastoral vision of the national heritage whose preservation had become necessary. The designs form a part of Piper’s pictorial work whose logical conclusion found expression in stained-glass windows. From the architectural designs for The Rape of Lucretia to the window he designed for the new Coventry Cathedral and to the last opera sets for Death in Venice, he created backdrops for Britten’s works that provided a sense of aesthetic continuity whilst reflecting the contradictions of opera as a social form of art in post-war Britain.

    Love, Sex, and Choices is a 12-episode soap opera video series created as an intervention to reduce HIV sex risk. The effect on women's HIV risk behavior was evaluated in a randomized controlled trial in 238 high risk, predominately African American young adult women in the urban Northeast. To facilitate on-demand access and privacy, the episodes were streamed to study-provided smartphones. Here, we discuss the development of a mobile platform to deliver the 12-weekly video episodes or weekly HIV risk reduction written messages to smartphones, including; the technical requirements, development, and evaluation. Popularity of the smartphone and use of the Internet for multimedia offer a new channel to address health disparities in traditionally underserved populations. This is the first study to report on streaming a serialized video-based intervention to a smartphone. The approach described here may provide useful insights in assessing advantages and disadvantages of smartphones to implement a video-based intervention.

O objetivo desse estudo foi analisar os fatores motivacionais dos policiais de operações especiais e os aspectos inerentes à identidade e cultura do BOPE. Revisaram-se as principais teorias de motivação (Herzberg; Maslow; McGregor; McClelland com foco no campo da Administração Pública. Adotou-se uma abordagem qualitativa, estudo de caso e pesquisa exploratória. Realizaram-se entrevistas em profundidade, conduzidas a partir de um roteiro semiestruturado desenvolvido com base na revisão de literatura. Os resultados indicaram que a confiança e a força do vínculo estabelecido entre os policiais constituem-se no principal fator motivacional e permeiam os valores praticados. A partir dos resultados foi possível notar limitações nas teorias motivacionais para que fosse possível compreender o fenômeno motivacional no objeto estudado. Pôde-se notar a importância da identidade e da cultura organizacional atrelada à qualidade do vínculo entre os colaboradores e ao valor que o cumprimento das missões representa para eles. O estudo destacou limitações e sugeriu proposições para avanços.

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta uma discussão sobre os valores humanos a partir de uma situação de abrupta mudança organizacional gerada por uma operação de aquisição. O objetivo desta pesquisa teórico-empírica foi compreender como os funcionários que vivenciaram a operação de aquisição da instituição financeira em que trabalhavam conseguiram lidar com essa situação a partir dos valores humanos. A pesquisa é qualitativa, descritiva, de corte temporal seccional com perspectiva longitudinal. Os dados foram coletados por meio de entrevistas semiestruturadas e interpretados pela técnica da análise de conteúdo. A lente teórica deste estudo se sustentou no modelo de Rohan (2000, sobre o sistema de valores pessoais, o qual traz como inovação a ideia de que os valores têm mais do que um papel na sobrevivência dos indivíduos por serem, conforme denomina a autora, guias para a melhor forma possível de viver. Os resultados nos levam a concluir que, embora haja divergências nos sistemas de valor pessoal e de prioridade social dos entrevistados, ou seja, no modo como eles encaram e guiam seus comportamentos e atitudes diante de uma mesma situação, eles encontraram a melhor forma possível de viver perante a operação de aquisição, na medida em que conseguiram respeitar e preservar seus valores pessoais para se adaptarem às novas circunstâncias de trabalho, sem que isso lhes representasse sofrimento. Essa interface entre os valores humanos dos entrevistados e a mudança organizacional por eles vivenciada ressalta, portanto, aspectos que vão além da adaptação dos indivíduos para sobrevivência e para a participação em uma sociedade. Ao mesmo tempo, mostra que a complexa formação de um grupo pode conter sistemas de priorização de valores pessoais e sociais diversos em diálogo, sem com isso implicar homogeneidade para lidar com uma mesma situação. Essa compreensão justifica, finalmente, o motivo pelo qual os funcion

    Full Text Available Resumo Atualmente é observado um crescimento de iniciativas independentes para a implantação de sistemas prediais de água não potável em edifícios residenciais. Essas iniciativas contam com pouco respaldo técnico normativo, diretrizes ou legislação que orientem projetistas, executores e gestores sobre as práticas adequadas de implantação, operação e manutenção desses sistemas, o que pode colocar em risco a saúde dos usuários e o sucesso dessa tecnologia. Considerando-se que é indispensável atender às necessidades dos usuários por meio da adequação das soluções ao uso, a Avaliação Durante Operação (ADO apresenta-se como uma ferramenta adequada para a análise da situação atual do sistema. Nesse contexto, este artigo tem como objetivo avaliar o desempenho de sistemas prediais de água não potável durante sua operação em edifícios residenciais no que se refere a projeto, execução, operação e manutenção. Para tanto foi aplicada a metodologia de ADO em seis edifícios residenciais. Os resultados mostram que a falta de capacitação técnica, de normas técnicas e de legislações específicas que orientem projetistas, executores, gestores e usuários contribui para o atual cenário, caracterizado por sistemas que operam com desempenho inferior para atender às necessidades e garantir a segurança dos usuários.

  16. Reconstruction et analyse des gerbes électromagnétiques dans l'expérience OPERA et étude des oscillations neutrino avec détection d'électrons

    CERN Document Server

    Brunet, Florian

    An international program is ongoing to measure the neutrino oscillation phenomenon and to determine the neutrino mixing matrix (MNSP) parameters. OPERA is a long-baseline neutrino experiment located at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy, 730~km from CERN, downstream in the CNGS neutrino beam. The OPERA experiment is designed and optimised for a direct appearance search of νµ → ντ oscillations. It can also detect the νµ → νe oscillation driven by sin(2θ13)2 , where θ13 is the last mixing angle finally measured by the Daya Bay, RENO, and Double Chooz experiments in 2012. To observe the presence of ντ interactions in the beam, the OPERA detector is composed of calorimetric targets made of a modular structure called the "brick": a sandwich of lead plates interspaced with emulsion layers. The latter allows reconstructing tracks of charged particles produced in the neutrino interactions with a micrometric resolution. The search for the νµ → νe oscillation signal is based on the capability of ide...

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pierre Degott

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available The history of English opera has always been conditioned by the ambivalent attitude of English-speaking audiences towards their own language. A close scrutiny of the London theatre seasons of the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries does indeed show a strong split, in terms of aesthetic and sociological considerations, between, on the one hand, the aristocratic Italian seasons of the King’s Theatre in Covent Garden, and the English opera seasons organised by the "lesser" theatres on the other. The aim of this paper is to assess the sociological implications of the use of the English language on the operatic stage. Far from defending the – now absurd – idea of the superiority of English over original versions, this paper shows that English versions of the main repertory were sometimes far ahead of their Italian counterparts at least in terms of artistry and musical authenticity. An example of such a phenomenon is provided by the Old Vic in the 1920s, when Edward Dent’s spirited translations of Mozart’s operas won the theatre the name of "the Home of Mozart." A comparative study of several translations of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro further displays the interrelatedness of the sociological and aesthetic issues of operatic translation.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alexandra Poulain

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available The many images of bonds and confinement in The Beggar’s Opera are metaphorical prefigurations of death by hanging, which threatens every character in the play. The only way in which they can delay this inevitable outcome is by keeping bodies, money and meaning in movement, while fixity means immediate death. Female desire, however, is phobically represented as mortiferous desire, whose ultimate goal is to reintroduce bonds and knots—especially "the sacred knots of marriage." The two ends offer two opposite outcomes for the war between the sexes which structures the plot: while the female taste for fixity triumphs in the original "tragic" end, the male propension for play has the final word in the Player’s comic version.

    Mixed reality defines the sharing of a space-time between the real and the virtual world. The definition of this concept is further extended when virtual worlds such as Second Life® (SL) are included. Through cultural events such as concerts and operas, we will see that the main goal of these kinds of projects is not simply to offer a video and audio broadcast of these events in the digital dimension. The current challenge is to create interactions between the individuals who are in different shared spaces. By studying the unfolding of these events in its various phases-before, during, and after-we examine the culture of the event. We question how the culture of the event can be transposed in a mixed reality display, and how this kind of event can affect people on both sides of the "membrane" made by the technical configuration. Beyond the alignments and adjustments that we can see between the different individuals involved in these events, we examine more broadly the changes and mutations of the culture of the event in this specific configuration.

    Full Text Available Tendo em vista o aumento do transporte marítimo no mundo e a consequente demanda por operações nos portos, os operadores buscam formas de minimizar o tempo de permanência dos navios no porto. Para atracar um navio, os portos necessitam ter disponíveis diversos recursos. Assim, planejar a designação de recursos eficientemente para não atrasar a atracação dos navios é vital para os portos. Esta designação é dinâmica, pois atrasos e antecipações na chegada dos navios ocorrem por diversos fatores demandando assim que ela seja atualizada constantemente. Este artigo propõe um Multiagent System (MAS para resolução da designação de recursos de forma distribuída e em tempo real, visando reduzir o tempo de espera para atracação dos navios. Testes foram realizados em 27 cenários e os resultados mostraram que o MAS resolveu instâncias de teste de grande porte e nos cenários mais próximos do real, ele resolveu em um tempo pequeno e com soluções estáveis.

    Neutrino oscillations are the subject of most of the experiments looking at this particle. This mechanism uses the fact that neutrinos have mass to allow the transformation from one flavour to another one. The OPERA experiment will start to take data in spring 2006. Its goal is to proof this mechanism with no ambiguity using the appearance of tau neutrinos in the CNGS beam, which is made of muon neutrinos. This thesis presents a description of neutrino beams in general, and more precisely of the CNGS beam, which is sent from CERN to Gran Sasso in Italy. The neutrino flux are recalculated, and simulations have been performed in order to study miss positioning of the beam line elements. The OPERA detector is made of bricks containing a pile of lead plates and photographic emulsion films, of two trackers and two spectrometers. The high position resolution of the emulsions (< 1 {mu}m ), allows to identify the {tau} created by the tau neutrino charged current interactions. The brick localisation is made using a scintillator array. The pattern recognition in these scintillators as well as in the spectrometers is one of the part of this thesis. Furthermore, a muon identification algorithm has been set up. It allows to reject by a factor 20 the charm background. Future of neutrino oscillation physics is the building of more and more intense neutrino beams, in order to measure the last unknown parameters ({theta}{sub 13} and {delta}{sub CP}). The project of neutrino beam from CERN to the Fr us tunnel is fully revisited in the last part of this thesis. An optimisation of all the beam line element is proposed, and allows to reach a sensitivity to {theta}{sub 13} around one degree. (author)

    Full Text Available One of the limitations for reaching sustainable forest development is related to the traffic of machines and vehicles during harvest operations and wood transport, which may cause soil structure degradation. Seeking a way to analyze this problem, the objective of this study was to determine the traffic effects due to harvest operations and wood transport, on the preconsolidation pressure (sigmap in a Typic Acrustox cultivated with eucalyptus. This study was conducted using undisturbed soil samples collected at the 0.1-0.125 m depth. Undisturbed soil samples were used in the uniaxial compression tests. Soil sampling consisted of two stages, before and after the mechanized harvest operations. The traffic effects on the sigmap in the dry season indicated that the soil compaction process was neither evident nor important. However, in the rainy season the traffic effects on the sigmap indicated that the operations performed with Harvester and Forwarder caused greater soil compaction than those with Motorized Saw and Manual, which caused less soil compaction.Uma das limitações para alcançar o desenvolvimento florestal sustentável está relacionado ao tráfico de máquinas e veículos durante as operações de colheita e transporte de madeira que podem causar degradação da estrutura do solo.

    Full Text Available Fundamentos: Próteses valvares aórticas com desempenho hemodinâmico adequado possibilitariam maior regressão da hipertrofia ventricular e normalização da função ventricular. Isto possivelmente tenha implicações importantes no prognóstico tardio após a substituição da valva aórtica. Objetivo: Avaliar o desempenho hemodinâmico do auto-enxerto pulmonar em posição aórtica e a regressão da hipertrofia ventricular esquerda após a operação de Ross. Casuística e Métodos: De maio/95 a março/97, 45 pacientes com média de idades de 27,1 anos foram submetidos à operação de Ross. Todos os pacientes foram submetidos, no pós-operatório imediato, a ecocardiografia com Doppler e cateterismo cardíaco para avaliação do desempenho hemodinâmico dos auto e homoenxertos, assim como da massa e função ventricular esquerda. Catorze pacientes com evolução superior a seis meses submeteram-se a ecocardiografia de stress com dobutamina, para estudar o desempenho hemodinâmico dos auto e homoenxertos em condição de exercício. Resultados: A mortalidade hospitalar foi de 6%. Após tempo médio de seguimento de 12,8 meses (1-23, ocorreu um óbito súbito tardio e nenhuma complicação relacionada à prótese. O desempenho hemodinâmico imediato e tardio dos auto-enxertos foi praticamente normal, com média de gradiente médio de 1,8 ± 0,6 mmHg e média de gradiente instantâneo máximo de 2,9 ± 0,9 mmHg.

    Abstract The story of Nini Anteh is an oral folklore of Sundanese, which has undergone a transformation into transgenre and translingual forms. Kesuma’s novel of “Nini Anteh” and an Opera Van Java (OVJ episode of “Nyai Anteh Penjaga Bulan” were the data of this study. The theory used in this research is the theory of transformation proposed by Riffaterre. Analysis of the data reveals expansion, conversion, modification, and similarities. Expansion in the OVJ did not appear in the slot, characters, and background for the story was made simpler than that in the novel. Expansion appeared in the variety of media used to invite laughter. Conversion in the OVJ was evident in simplified plot, character, and setting. In addition, the concept of beauty of Nyai Anteh in the novel was entirely changed for entertainment purposes. A gender bias background in the novel was turned into a neutral background in the OVJ. Although both works carried a Sundanese story, they show the notion of Indonesian by modifying the story through the use of characters and equipment in accordance with the modern age. In the novel efforts to build past linked to the life of the present can be seen as an attempt to prompt reflection, while modifications in the OVJ were to invite laughter. Both works share the same description of a woman who then decided to reside on the Moon because of love. What she did on the moon was weaving. These similarities indicate that there are things that would be passed on to subsequent generations, especially regarding the independence of women in producing textiles.  Keywords: Novel of Dongeng Nini Anteh, OVJ episode of Nyai Anteh Penjaga Bulan, transformation

A brief characterization of the all-part conception is provided along with descriptions of activities involving the four basic operations based on the use of flat figures, although other conceptions may emerge during the solution. We limit our considerations to this conception because it is the most frequent, in textbooks as well as teacher practice, although it is not used to justify operational rules of fractional numbers. Key-words: Fractions. Fractional Numbers. Operations.Neste artigo, apresentamos uma reflexão a respeito das operações com números fracionários focalizando a concepção parte-todo por meio de algumas atividades que possam contribuir para a prática docente na escola básica. O estudo explicita uma breve caracterização da concepção parte-todo e atividades envolvendo as quatro operações fundamentais tratadas em figuras planas, embora outras concepções possam ser mobilizadas durante a solução.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Estudo retrospectivo dos resultados tardios dos pacientes submetidos a miotomia e fundoplicatura para o tratamento do megaesôfago. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODO: Foram estudados 83 pacientes com seguimento de um a 186 meses (média de 40,0 ± 47,4 meses. A fundoplicatura em três planos, proposta por Pinotti, foi realizada em 15,7% dos doentes e a fundoplicatura parcial posterior em 83,1%. A queixa pré-operatória principal foi disfagia, seguida de regurgitação e perda ponderal. A etiologia chagásica pode ser comprovada em 72,3% dos doentes, através de teste sorológico. RESULTADOS: No seguimento, 55,4% dos doentes estavam assintomáticos, 34,9% queixavam-se de disfagia esporádica, 14,4% de pirose, 8,4% de regurgitação e 2,4% de disfagia igual pré-operatória, sendo esses últimos re-operados, com melhora da sintomatologia. Refluxo gastro-esofágico foi constatado em 8,4% dos doentes. Outras complicações tardias foram: hérnia paraesofágica, deslizamento da fundoplicatura, esôfago de Barrett e neoplasia do esôfago. CONCLUSÃO: Os autores salientam a necessidade de acompanhamento clínico e endoscópico perene dos doentes, mesmo operados, devido à possibilidade de complicações tardias, em especial o câncer. Concluem por bons resultados tardios em relação à disfagia. Propõem, como alternativa à esofagectomia, a operação de Heller em pacientes portadores de megaesôfago grau IV com más condições clínicas, que não suportariam uma cirurgia de maior porte.

    Abstract: We present a Semantically optiMize the dAta seRvice operaTion (SMART) system for better data discovery and access across the NASA data systems, Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) Clearinghouse and Data.gov to facilitate scientists to select Earth observation data that fit better their needs in four aspects: 1. Integrating and interfacing the SMART system to include the functionality of a) semantic reasoning based on Jena, an open source semantic reasoning engine, b) semantic similarity calculation, c) recommendation based on spatiotemporal, semantic, and user workflow patterns, and d) ranking results based on similarity between search terms and data ontology. 2. Collaborating with data user communities to a) capture science data ontology and record relevant ontology triple stores, b) analyze and mine user search and download patterns, c) integrate SMART into metadata-centric discovery system for community-wide usage and feedback, and d) customizing data discovery, search and access user interface to include the ranked results, recommendation components, and semantic based navigations. 3. Laying the groundwork to interface the SMART system with other data search and discovery systems as an open source data search and discovery solution. The SMART systems leverages NASA, GEO, FGDC data discovery, search and access for the Earth science community by enabling scientists to readily discover and access data appropriate to their endeavors, increasing the efficiency of data exploration and decreasing the time that scientists must spend on searching, downloading, and processing the datasets most applicable to their research. By incorporating the SMART system, it is a likely aim that the time being devoted to discovering the most applicable dataset will be substantially reduced, thereby reducing the number of user inquiries and likewise reducing the time and resources expended by a data center in addressing user inquiries.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lucotte, A.

    2004-09-01

    The first part is dedicated to the theoretical aspects of the mechanism of mass generation in the standard model. The implications of this mechanism in the experimental field concerning the Higgs boson search and neutrinos are detailed. The second part presents the D0 experiment at the Tevatron (Fermilab) and describes in a detailed way the forward pre-shower (FPS) that is a sub-detector of D0 whose aim is to identify the electrons. FPS has required a specific triggering system linked to a data acquisition line. The third part is devoted to the Opera experiment that is planned to operate in 2006. The purpose of this experiment is to confirm the oscillations of muon neutrinos and tau neutrinos through the direct detection of a tau lepton in the pure beam of muon neutrinos produced in CERN. The author describes his contribution to the design and testing of the front-end read electronics of the Opera scintillator tracker. (A.C.)

    Full Text Available A extensão universitária desempenha um papel fundamental na formação cidadã dos alunos. Com isso, o Projeto Rondon que visa à integração social aliada ao voluntariado dos estudantes universitários, aborda em suas operações o tema de Saúde e Higiene Bucal. O objetivo deste trabalho foi de conscientizar sobre as práticas da higiene bucal e prevenção de doenças bucais e sistêmicas, incentivar a higiene pessoal dos alunos e ensinar a técnica correta de escovação dentária. As oficinas de higiene bucal ocorreram no ano de 2015, nos meses de janeiro e abril, no município de Itatuba-PB, na Operação Porta do Sol do Projeto Rondon e em São Paulo-SP, na E.E. Júlio de Mesquita Filho. A oficina consistiu de aula expositiva sobre higienização bucal, diálogo sobre a importância de uma boa escovação, seguida de dinâmica em que foi utilizado um modelo de escova de dente e boca de tamanhos ampliados. Em Itatuba-PB 125 pessoas participaram da oficina, e foram entregues 500 escovas de dente no período da operação. Já em São Paulo-SP cerca de 580 alunos participaram da ação e foram entregues mais de 500 escovas de dente. A distribuição de escovas de dente contribui para bons hábitos de higiene e ajuda a diminuir a influência das condições socioeconômicas. O estudante universitário atua como multiplicador de informações que são extremamente importantes e que contribuem para o bem-estar do público-alvo, ações preconizadas pelo Projeto Rondon e que atendem ao papel que a extensão universitária exerce dentro da comunidade.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available As dificuldades de aprendizagem decorrentes do modelo de ensino encontrado nas escolas e os avanços dos recursos tecnológicos são fatores que influenciam a educação matemática. Os alunos apresentam um grau de dificuldade relevante com relação ao ensino-aprendizagem, causado pela falta de motivação, de aulas monótonas e sem relação com o cotidiano. Ao mesmo tempo, os recursos tecnológicos vêm sendo inseridos na educação de forma crescente, trazendo resultados positivos para o ensino. Considerando tais fatores, este trabalho analisou o uso de software educativo como auxílio na aprendizagem de matemática, apresentando-o como uma possibilidade de tornar as aulas mais motivadoras aos alunos. Para verificar se essa utilização traz resultados positivos para o ensino-aprendizagem, buscou-se tal comprovação por meio de estudo de caso de natureza exploratória realizado com alunos do 4º ano do ensino fundamental I, utilizando como ferramenta o software educativo Tux of Math Command. Realizou-se uma análise comportamental dos alunos na realização de operações matemáticas em diferentes situações: resolvendo as operações em sala de aula, e utilizando o jogo no laboratório de informática. Na utilização do software, verificou-se uma atitude mais instigante dos alunos do que na resolução das operações em sala de aula. Esse interesse foi decorrente da associação do jogo feita pelos alunos, não como problema a ser resolvido e sim como algo prazeroso e significativo, em oposição ao ocorrido em sala de aula, momento em que prevaleceu a insegurança e a necessidade de apresentar soluções. A pesquisa possibilitou afirmação do questionamento apresentado neste trabalho, confirmando que a utilização do software educativo auxilia o processo de ensino-aprendizagem de matemática.

    This paper examines the relationship between charity, Cantonese opera and the mass media in Hong Kong in the 1950s and 1960s.This relationship will be illustrated by a well-known Cantonese opera Lewdness is the Worst of All Sins, which is one of the master-pieces of Xun Ma Tsaih, the "king of Cantonese opera".Thanks to the charity shows on the radio after a series of natural disasters in the 1950s and 1960s, Cantonese opera found its new life.Not only was the performance regarded as an act of charity, some ambitious opera stars found the opportunity to excel themselves.On the other hand, the administrators of radio stations were also smart to grasp the opportunity to build up the corporate image of their institutions and thus increase the number of listeners and subscribers.At the same time, when specific opera songs were requested in the charity shows, a hybrid of social enjoyment in the form of charity-cum-entertainment flourished.In short, charity, Cantonese opera and the mass media constituted a symbiotic mechanism, the legacy of which can still be found today.%从20世纪50年代开始,电台的义唱筹款节目给粤剧发展带来一个契机,不单粤剧被赋予社会价值,伶人也找到表现自己的机会.义唱以点唱形式进行,一边助人,一边娱己,为听众带来新体验;义唱节目同时有助增加电台听众,树立起正面的机构形象.为了在有限时间内筹得最多善款,新马师曾义唱《万恶淫为首》主题曲,尔来为贫苦大众筹得巨款.粤剧、传媒与慈善发生这共生关系,影响至今.

    Full Text Available Na década de 1990, a Argentina foi um dos principais contribuintes para as operações de paz da ONU (PKO[1]. O país vinha de um regime militar, colapsado econômica e politicamente após uma guerra fracassada com uma grande potência. A Guerra das Malvinas/Falkland entre a Argentina e o Reino Unido acabou sendo um dos fatores que contribuíram para a eleição de Raúl Alfonsín, civil, em 1983. Num cenário de tentativa de retomada do poder pelos civis e de reorganização interna do Estado, o que poderia levar a Argentina a se tornar um dos principais contribuintes de PKO nos anos 1990? .

    Full Text Available Although Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess (1935 is still regarded by most critics as the first African-American opera, Louis Gruenberg’s The Emperor Jones (1933 and Scott Joplin’s Treemonisha (1910 have recently challenged this sacrosanct position. Today, according to some researchers, Frederick Delius’s Koanga, based upon the central episode of the story of “Bras coupé” in George Cable’s The Grandissimes, composed in 1897 but whose première took place in 1904, could claim to be “actually the first”. This statement obviously raises the question of the definition of an “African–American” and the attendant criteria. Through an analysis of the libretto as well as the reviews of the various performances from the late 1890’s to the early 1970’s, this article aims to assess the African-American criteria of Koanga.

    Full Text Available Ad oggi in Letteratura sono presenti pochi studi di settore basati sulla valutazione del rischio rumore nei teatri lirici. Questa condizione si è venuta a creare nonostante in Italia prima il D.Lgs. 195/06, che ha recepito la Direttiva sul rumore 2003/10/CE, e poi le “Linee guida per il settore della musica e delle attività ricreative”, emanate ai sensi dell’art. 198 del D.Lgs. 81/08, obbligano i datori di lavoro a eseguire la valutazione dei rischi. Il presente lavoro riporta i risultati preliminari di uno studio pilota dell’esposizione professionale a rumore dei musicisti dell’orchestra sinfonica di un teatro lirico ita-liano. Sono state effettuate rilevazioni fonometriche su un campione rappresentativo dei componenti dell’orchestra, tramite dosimetri personali e analizzatori in frequenza. Le registrazioni sonore sono state effettuate durante le esecuzioni musicali nella fossa d’orchestra del teatro durante diverse tipologie di rappresentazioni teatrali. ------ To date, in the literature there are few field studies based on the noise risk assessment in opera houses. This condition has come about in spite of the Italian Leg. Decree n. 195/06, which transposed the noise Directive 2003/10/EC, and then the national "Guidelines for the music industry and recreation", issued under Art. 198 of Leg. Decree n. 81/08, oblige employers to perform noise risk assessment. This paper reports the preliminary results of a pilot study of occupational exposure to noise of the symphony orchestra musicians of an Italian opera. Surveys were carried out on a representative sample of members of the orchestra, using personal dosimeters and frequency analyzers. Sound recordings were made during the musical performances in the orchestra pit of the theater during the various types of theatrical performances.

    Full Text Available The sowing process for annual no-till crops affects the physical soil conditions around the seeds by exposing them to adverse conditions that may limit initial plant development and reduce potential yield. The use of seed drills that are not compatible with field conditions and the use of inappropriate seed drill speeds affect sowing performance. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the effect of different seed drill types and operating speeds on soybean quality parameters and yield components. Two furrow opener (double disc and chisel and four operating speed (0.86; 1.22; 1.47 and 1.94 m s-1 treatments were used. The following variables were evaluated: mean number of days until emergence, plant distribution uniformity, sowing depth, area of the soil disturbed, crop stand and grain yield. Overall, the chisel furrow opener provided a greater sowing depth and increased the disturbed soil area more than the double disc furrow opener. Increased operating speeds reduced crop stands and yields and increased the disturbed soil area. Em culturas anuais submetidas ao sistema plantio direto o processo de semeadura afeta o condicionamento físico do solo ao redor das sementes expondo as mesmas a condições adversas, podendo limitar o desenvolvimento inicial das plantas e minimizar o potencial produtivo. O uso de sulcadores não condizentes com a situação de campo e de velocidades inadequadas são fatores que afetam o bom desempenho da semeadura. Nesse contexto, este trabalho teve por objetivo, avaliar o efeito de diferentes sulcadores e velocidades de operação sobre parâmetros de qualidade de semeadura e componentes de produtividade da cultura da soja. Os tratamentos foram compostos pela combinação entre dois sulcadores (disco e haste e quatro velocidades de operação (0,86; 1,22; 1,47 e 1,94 m s-1.

    Full Text Available Resumo Este trabalho compara a influência do arrefecimento causado por um fluído em circulação e em contato com a parede interna de uma tubulação, que caracteriza a soldagem em operação. Foram avaliadas duas espessuras de parede do tubo e duas temperaturas do fluido interno. A soldagem foi realizada na ligação de conexões de aço ASTM A105 a um tubo API 5L Gr X60 com espessura de 11 mm e de 6 mm, utilizando os processos TIG (GTAW e eletrodo revestido (SMAW. A circulação do fluido foi feita com água potável em duas faixas de temperatura, de 6 a 10 °C e 18 a 36 °C. Durante a soldagem, a temperatura interna do tubo e a taxa de resfriamento foram monitoradas. Foram preparadas quatro juntas soldadas, avaliadas por ensaios não destrutivos (inspeção visual, líquido penetrante, partículas magnéticas e ultrassom, ensaios destrutivos (tração, dobramento, impacto, fratura e dureza e análise macrográfica e micrográfica. Os resultados mostram que, com os procedimentos adotados, não é necessária a adoção de cuidados especiais quanto à possibilidade de perfuração e vazamento de fluido durante a soldagem em operação. Houve evidencias que o efeito do arrefecimento do fluido no interior do tubo foi mais significativo que a espessura da parede do tubo no aumento da taxa de resfriamento. Ainda, a temperatura do fluido em circulação no tubo exerceu papel secundário no aumento da taxa de resfriamento e na redução da temperatura máxima na parede interna do tubo. O arrefecimento causado pelo fluido provocou aumento na dureza da ZF e ZTA, reduziu o alongamento no ensaio de tração, porém ainda em valores adequados. Estes comportamentos foram mais observados no tubo de menor espessura, de 6 mm. Foi possível, pelos resultados dos ensaios não destrutivos e ensaios mecânicos obtidos, qualificar os procedimentos de soldagem, com base nas normas especializadas neste processo.

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available La Fanciulla del West is a “horse opera” resulting from the second collaboration between David Belasco and Giacomo Puccini. This work, specially composed for the American stage, which had its world premiere at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in December 1910, paved the way for American composers who increasingly focused on American History in their quest for a “national” opera. For the first time, Puccini resorted to genuine Indian music, a Zuni melody, which he re-elaborated for dramatic purposes and associated with the nostalgic mood of uprooted people, the miners who left their home country for America. The Other – the native American viewed from the vantage point of the white, as well as the foreigner – no longer represented a threat, as had been the case in the operatic repertoire before, but became part and parcel of a multicultural society, like the Italian immigrant to whom Puccini also paid tribute. The Zuni melody, which opens and closes the opera, contributes to giving a genuine twist to a score which is the first one to tackle the foundations of the American nation.

OBJETIVO: Relatar a experiência cirúrgica inicial com essa operação em nosso meio. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODOS: De maio/95 a fevereiro/96,24 pacientes com média de idades de 28,3 anos foram submetidos à operação de Ross pelo método de substituição do segmento proximal da aorta ascendente. Para a reconstrução da via de saída do ventrículo direito, foram utilizados 17 homoenxertos pulmonares e 7 homoenxertos aórticos preservados em solução de antibióticos. Em todos os pacientes foram realizados ecocardiograma bidimensional com Doppler e cateterismo cardíaco no pós-operatório imediato, para avaliar a função ventricular e desempenho hemodinâmico dos auto e homoenxertos utilizados. Três pacientes com evolução clínica superior a seis meses realizaram novo ecocardiograma. RESULTADOS: A mortalidade hospitalar foi de 4%. Os sobreviventes tiveram alta hospitalar em ritmo sinusal e sem sopro diastólico de insuficiência aórtica. O desempenho hemodinâmico dos auto-enxertos foi muito satisfatório, com baixos gradientes de pico (4,0 ± 1,3 mmHg pelo ecocardiograma e 2,8 ± 1,2 mmHg pelo cateterismo. Vinte e um pacientes apresentaram auto-enxertos suficientes e/ou com insuficiência trivial, e 2 pacientes tiveram insuficiência leve. Nenhum paciente teve insuficiência moderada ou importante.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho descreve a experiência inicial com a operação de Rastelli, utilizando-se um conduto valvulado de pericárdio bovino preservado em glutaraldeído. O enxerto consta de um conduto, que serve para reconstruir a via de saída do ventrículo direito e o tronco pulmonar, com uma válvula tricúspide suturada em seu interior sem anel de suporte, permitindo, assim, um mecanismo de fluxo unidirecional. De maio de 1986 a outubro de 1987, 5 crianças foram submetidas à operação de Rastelli empregando-se este tipo de conduto valvulado. Três eram do sexo feminino e 2, do masculino, variando a idade de 1 a 8 anos x 5. Três pacientes tinham transposição das grandes artérias, comunicação interventricular (CIV e estenose subpulmonar. Uma criança era portadora de atresia pulmonar com CIV e de um shunt prévio tipo Waterston e, finalmente, a outra tinha um tronco arterial comum tipo II. Dois doentes faleceram de causas não relacionadas ao tipo de conduto valvulado utilizado. O conduto valvulado de pericárdio bovino preservado em glutaraldeído mostrou excelente flexibilidade, facilitando o manuseio cirúrgico e permitindo perfeita adaptabilidade dentro do saco pericárdico. A ausência de anel de suporte tem a vantagem de eliminar qualquer gradiente e de abolir o turbilhonamento do sangue - causas reconhecidas de calcificação.The present report describes the initial experience with the Rastelli operation utilizing a composite graft of glutaraldehyde preserved bovine pericardium. The graft is made up of a tube which serves to reconstruct the outflow tract of the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery, and an inner tricuspid valve, without a supporting ring, which provides the tube with a one-way flow mechanism. From May, 1986 to October, 1987, five children were submitted to Rastelli operation utilizing this valved tube. Three were female and two male, ranging in age from 1 e to 8 years (mean 5 years. Three had transposition

    Full Text Available Objetivou-se, com este trabalho, avaliar parâmetros da qualidade de semeadura e o desenvolvimento e rendimento da cultura do milho semeada no sistema plantio direto sobre diferentes manejos de cobertura vegetal e velocidades de operação da semeadora-adubadora na região sudoeste do estado do Paraná. Utilizou-se esquema de parcelas subdivididas, as quais constituíram os manejos de cobertura vegetal da aveia preta (aveia gradeada, rolada, triturada e dessecada e as subparcelas as velocidades de operação (4,5 e 7,0 km h-1 no delineamento de blocos ao acaso, com quatro repetições. Avaliaram-se o espaçamento entre plantas, a uniformidade de distribuição de sementes, a profundidade de semeadura, o índice de velocidade de emergência, o estande de plantas, a área de solo mobilizada e a produtividade média da cultura. Os dados tabulados foram analisados pelo teste F a 0,05 e, apresentando significância, as médias foram comparadas pelo teste de Tukey a 0,05 de probabilidade. Concluiu-se que a melhor distribuição de sementes foi observada na menor velocidade e a produtividade média da cultura não foi influenciada pelos tratamentos. Os manejos de cobertura vegetal não se mostraram eficientes na melhoria das condições de semeadura.The objective of this study was to evaluate quality parameters of sowing and the development and yield of maize sown in no tillage system under different vegetation managements and operating speeds of the seeder in the southwest region of the S tate of Paraná.

    Full Text Available Em sistemas de operações integradas, os reais benefícios da integração só podem ser obtidos e reconhecidos se o projeto e a estrutura organizacional decorrente se tornam compatíveis com a mudança a ser introduzida. Além disso, há a necessidade de se desenvolver uma metodologia para a condução da atividade de projeto, o que inclui a sua gestão e instrumentalização. Da definição de um modelo de referência para o projeto organizacional, desenvolve-se a racionalidade do processo de projetar. A partir desta racionalidade e dos seus elementos constituintes, identifica-se uma abordagem metodológica que tenha a completude necessária, no sentido de se manter a coerência entre a estrutura e a mudança a ser introduzida, bem como de servir como instrumento para a sua operacionalização. Portanto, afora desenvolver a racionalidade do processo de projetar, destaca-se como contribuição deste trabalho a identificação de uma abordagem que, além de definir um processo de gestão da atividade de projeto organizacional, orientando a sua instrumentalização, poderá servir como uma estratégia para o refinamento e a validação do modelo. Tal metodologia contribui para a construção de uma Teoria Organizacional de Projeto para os sistemas organizacionais, em particular para os sistemas de operações integradas.The real benefits of integration, in an integrated operations system, can only be obtained and recognized if the implemented organizational design and structure are compatible with the introduced change. Besides the development of a methodology to drive the design task is needed, including its management and operationalization. From the reference model definition for the organizational design, it is developed the design process rationality. From this rationality and its constituent elements, it is identified a methodological approach that encompass the needed completeness, in the sense to sustain the coherence between the

    Full Text Available The main source of soil structure degradation in coffee plantation is the machinery traffic because these operations may cause soil compaction affecting the crop development. This study aimed to generate the load-bearing capacity models for a Red-Yellow Latosol and to determine through the use of these models the soil susceptibility to compaction of the coffee plantation due to the implantation time and the compaction caused by the machinery traffic on the traffic lines located at the top and bottom of the ground. This study was carried out in the EPAMIG Experimental Farm, located at Três Pontas, MG, in coffee plantations (Coffee arabica L. with 2, 7, 18 and 33 years of establishment. To obtain the load-bearing capacity models, 12 undisturbed soil samples were randomly collected in the 0-3 cm and 15-18 cm layers in the position between the rows for each establishment time of the coffee plantation. It was also randomly collected 10 undisturbed soil samples for each establishment time of the coffee plantations along the tractor traffic lines located at the top and bottom of the ground. These undisturbed soil samples were used in the uniaxial compression tests. The use of the load-bearing capacity models allow to identify the soil susceptibility to compaction due to the implementation time of the coffee plantation and the compaction caused by the machinery traffic on the traffic lines located at the top and bottom of the ground. The percentage of compacted soil samples increases with the establishment time in the layer of 15-18 cm.A principal fonte de degradação da estrutura do solo na exploração cafeeira é o tráfego de máquinas, pois essas operações podem causar compactação do solo, afetando o desenvolvimento da cultura. Neste estudo, objetivou-se gerar os modelos de capacidade de suporte de carga para um Latossolo Vermelho-Amarelo e determinar por meio do uso desses modelos a suscetibilidade à compactação do solo, pelo tempo de

    A partir de diálogos estabelecidos com o conceito de “função integrativa” da unidade linguística postulado por Émile Benveniste (1995 e com os conceitos de “noção” e “forma esquemática” postulados pela Teoria das Operações Enunciativas de Antoine Culioli (1990, sustentamos, neste artigo, que a identidade semântica da unidade linguística deve ser buscada no próprio desenrolar do processo enunciativo. Esses diálogos, ao estimularem uma ampla refl exão sobre o que vem a ser a matéria semântica da “palavra”, permitem, no abandono de toda estabilidade anterior à interação discursiva, avançar hipóteses sobre alguns dos temas que tanto interessam à aquisição de linguagem, em particular, à questão da produtividade da “palavra-frase” ou dos enunciados de um único termo que caracterizam os primeiros enunciados da criança. Permitem ainda mostrar, por meio da conceituação de “enunciado” como organização de “marcadores”, a criatividade enunciativa infantil relacionada à própria ausência de categorização gramatical prévia atribuída aos termos observados nas interações constitutivas da produção verbal da criança em seus primeiros enunciados.

Essa revisão bibliográfica seleciona trabalhos sugestivos para a discussão que se segue sobre as principais convenções das novelas brasileiras, gênero de programação que articula elementos do documentário e da ficção, tratando da nação em termos melodramáticos. Análise de títulos relevantes exibidos nos anos 70 e 80 sugere que novelas pautaram o espaço público brasileiro em termos que expandem o domínio convencionalmente definido como feminino.This paper revisits the literature on media and gender studies in search of works that help to discuss the case of Brazilian soap operas. A series of references coming from different theoretical perspectives, with emphasis in different countries and historical periods, bring up ideas and concepts that approach the contemporary desire to connect, to participate and to interact in terms conventionally associated to the female domain. Examples from specific soap operas suggest the ways in which these prime time daily soaps blend documentary and fiction conventions and treat the Brazilian nation in melodramatic terms. In doing so, soap operas have expanded what was conventionally treated as the female domain.

    Full Text Available Nos processos contínuos há uma forte participação dos profissionais da manutenção e da engenharia na operação do sistema de produção. Manutenção e engenharia atuam diretamente na operação quando especificam parâmetros de controle do processo, intervêm em eventos previstos ou não, resolvem problemas de grande complexidade tecnológica e logística, e modificam processos e equipamentos para obter melhores resultados. Por outro lado, é a operação que detém o conhecimento de como realizar manobras, da inércia das instalações para responder a comandos, dos efeitos práticos do encadeamento e desdobramento de manobras, da alteração de parâmetros de controle, ou da indisponibilidade de equipamento, influenciando decisivamente o espectro de ação da engenharia e da manutenção. Não obstante, mesmo as mais avançadas e contemporâneas abordagens para projeto organizacional não apresentam critérios integrados de projeto para essas três decisivas funções, que se interpenetram. Ou seja, abordar-se-á não a interface tradicional, estática, entre as áreas, mas a sua interpenetração e ação de operação. Nesses termos, o objetivo deste trabalho é contribuir na construção de um quadro de referência e de critérios de projeto integrado das três áreas, a partir de estudo de caso de refinaria de petróleo multiprocessos, caso típico de processo contínuo.Engineering and Maintenance participate strongly in continuous process operations. They determine process control parameters; act decisively in production events; solve complex problems; and design modifications in production processes and hardware aimed at achieving productive, economic and environmental goals. On the other hand, Operations teams possess pragmatic knowledge of operational procedures, of hardware responses to process control commands, and of changes in production processes such as equipment failures or new production parameters.

    Full Text Available Can music express the world-view (Weltanschauung of a certain composer, or of a certain historical era – and how? In 19th Century, the wide-ranging philosophical implications of this question raised an intriguing quarrel between the formalists’ scepticism as to this point and their various opponents. Starting from the case study of the German psychologist and philosopher of music Georg Anschütz (1886-1953, it is argued that allowing for a systematic link of music and the world-views easily turns into the far more demanding (and occasionally ambiguous claim that music is the best and perhaps the only way to express them properly. In turn, this attitude sits well with the tendency to think of music hearing as a disembodied process, hinting at the deep dimension of synesthesia rather than to that of music as a cultural phenomenon, in Erich Hornbostel’s sense.

    Full Text Available O grande atrativo da Operação de Senning como descrita originalmente é a utilização das paredes do próprio átrio do paciente para a realização dos túneis venosos. A atrioseptostomia por balão, utilizada atualmente na grande maioria dos casos de transposição das grandes artérias (TGA, cria grandes comunicações interatriais. Com isso, é necessário a utilização de enxertos biológicos ou sintéticos (Dacron, Teflon e pericárdio bovino na septação do átrio esquerdo. Doze crianças consecutivas, com idades de 5 meses a 4 anos (média = 20 meses, foram submetidas à Operação de Senning com a utilização de tecidos do próprio paciente. O diagnóstico era de TGA em 9, TGA com comunicação interventricular (CIV em 1, TGA com estenose pulmonar valvar discreta em 1, TGA com justaposição das aurículas em 1 caso e todas as crianças foram submetidas à atrioseptostomia com balão no período neonatal. Em 5 casos foi utilizada a aurícula esquerda aberta e invertida para a septação interatrial, 1 com inversão e, em 5, inversão com abertura da aurícula esquerda e uso do próprio pericárdio in situ para a realização do túnel das veias pulmonares, devido às reduzidas dimensões do átrio direito (1 caso de justaposição das aurículas. O tempo de internação variou de 10 a 24 dias (média 15 dias, sendo que o período de pós-operatório variou de 7 a 22 dias (média 12 dias. Não houve óbitos no período de internação hospitalar.

    In questo intervento sono esaminati tre progetti architettonico-scultorei di Ivan Meštrović, nei quali è visibile la comprensione e l’applicazione della Gesamtkunstwerk, intesa come una forma particolare di partecipazione alla creazione artistica: il Tempio di Vidovdan, la Chiesa di Nostra Signora degli Angeli a Cavtat e la Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore a Otavice. Nell’articolo viene analizzato fino a che punto il protocollo della Gesamtkunstwerk sia veramente importante per l’interpretazione delle realizzazioni architettoniche di Meštrović. Inoltre, viene spiegato e dimostrato quanto Meštrović, come nessun altro artista del modernismo in Croazia, abbia riunito la progettazione architettonica e quella scultorea – fino ad allora quasi sempre scollegate – in un’unità artistica indissolubile, inserendole in seguito nello spettro di differenti e problematici contesti sociali, politici, religiosi o autoriflessivi. Nell’intervento, quindi, viene mostrato come la natura del protocollo della Gesamtkunstwerk cambi da un edificio impiegato per l’attivismo politico, prima e durante la prima guerra mondiale, fino ai luoghi sacrali e memoriali di natura più riflessiva, costruiti dopo la guerra e negli anni Venti. È importante rilevare come venga abbandonata l’interpretazione dell’«opera d’arte totale» come questione esclusivamente estetica, predeterminata dalla concezione dell’art pour l’art, e come a questa vengano aggiunte altre funzioni dell’opera nel suo più ampio contesto sociale, storico-politico e religioso.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Comparar os pacientes onde a operação foi realizada com circulação extracorpórea (CEC àqueles sem CEC, analisando suas características e verificando se houve ou não superioridade de alguma das técnicas empregadas. MÉTODO: Entre janeiro de 2002 e janeiro de 2004, 16 pacientes foram submetidos à operação de Glenn bidirecional (GB, todos com defeitos cardíacos complexos. Quatorze eram do sexo feminino, com idade mediana de 19 meses. Os pacientes foram divididos em dois grupos: A (GB com CEC e B (GB sem CEC, sendo sete do grupo A e nove do grupo B. Foram analisadas comparativamente as variáveis: sexo, idade, pressão arterial pulmonar média (PAPM, operação realizada, tempo de CEC, pinçamento da aorta, derivação venoatrial, operações prévias, internação na unidade de terapia intensiva (UTI, hospitalização e complicações imediatas. RESULTADOS: A mediana da PAPM foi 13 mmHg. No grupo A, o tempo foi de CEC 91 ± 47 minutos (57-195 minutos e o de isquemia miocárdica 25 ± 33 minutos (0-80 minutos. Destes, quatro necessitaram de procedimento intracardíaco ou ampliação de ramos pulmonares e três, auxílio da CEC como suporte ventilatório. No grupo B o tempo de desvio venoatrial foi de 21 ± 10 minutos (0-39 minutos. O tempo para extubação 9 ± 13 horas, mediana 3 horas (1-43 horas. A permanência UTI foi de 8 ± 12 dias, mediana 5 dias (1-50 dias. O período médio de internação hospitalar foi de 12 ± 12 dias, mediana 7 dias (0-50 dias. Cinco pacientes haviam sido submetidos à operação prévia. Dois (12,5% faleceram, sendo um em cada grupo. Não houve complicações neurológicas, derrame pleural ou pericárdico. Todas as variáveis estudadas entre os grupos não apresentaram diferença estatística significativa. CONCLUSÃO: Apesar da amostra relativamente pequena, o presente estudo sugere que a operação de GB pode ser realizada com ou sem CEC com resultados semelhantes no que se refere à morbidade

Embora existam modelos do mercado para esta finalidade, a relação entre processos, ciclo de vida e as práticas da oferta e operação de serviços de TI, como também uma visão prescritiva, não tem sido objeto de pesquisa, o que o presente estudo, de natureza pesquisa-ação, busca investigar. Percebe-se no decorrer do estudo que os modelos de melhoria de processos disponíveis atendem aos fatores críticos para o sucesso de um relacionamento de outsourcing de TI. Falta, porém, integrá-los e adequá-los de forma a serem utilizados de forma efetiva. Por meio de um modelo integrado de práticas, métodos quantitativos, matrizes de relacionamentos e de três estudos de casos, algumas propostas são apresentadas e discutidas como contribuições para a gestão da oferta e operação.This study discusses a proposal to improve the processes of IT Services' Offer and Operation, from the external provider point of view. Although there are models that serve this purpose available in the market, the relationship between processes, outsourcing life cycle, and IT Services' Offer and Operation practices as well as a prescriptive view have not been studied. Therefore, an action research was carried out to investigate these topics. It was observed that the models to improve those processes available are effective at meeting critical factors for the success of IT outsourcing relationship. Nevertheless, they must be integrated and adapted in order to be effectively used. Through an integrated model of practice, quantitative methods, relationship matrix, and three case studies, some proposals are presented and discussed as contributions to offer and operations management.

    The LVD time stability allows to establish a time-shift in the OPERA experiment, thus providing the first proof against Superluminal neutrinos, using the horizontal muons of the "Teramo Anomaly". This proof is particularly interesting since does not need the knowledge of the distance between the place where the neutrinos are produced (CERN) and the place where they are detected (LNGS). Since the Superluminal neutrinos generated in the physics community a vivid interest in good and bad behaviour in physics research, the author thought it was appropriate to recall the origin of the Gran Sasso Lab, of the 3rd neutrino, of the horizontal muons due to the "Teramo Anomaly" and of the oscillation between leptonic flavours, when the CERN-Gran Sasso neutrino beam was included in the project for the most powerful underground Laboratory in the world.

    Full Text Available Cet article revient sur la notion de sentimentalité et particulièrement sur l’opéra sentimental qui dérive du roman anglais de même nature. L’idée du triomphe ultime du bien, de la possibilité pour une jeune fille pauvre mais honnête de réussir dans la vie et de la bonté comme lien inaltérable unissant les hommes acquit une telle force à la fin du XVIIIe siècle qu’elle a été utilisée pour la définir. Une des œuvres les plus significatives du style sentimental, Pamela, le roman de Richardson, retint l’attention du librettiste Isaac Bickerstaffe (1733-1808, qui le transforma en « opéra anglais » faisant remarquer que son œuvre, « une bagatelle à bien des points de vue, constituait la première pièce sentimentale qui paraisse sur la scène anglaise depuis 40 ans ». Mis en musique par Samuel Arnold (1740-1802 l’opéra présente un genre nouveau, « l’opéra pastiche », qui incorpore la musique de plusieurs compositeurs. Musicalement, l’opéra n’a rien de très original et selon nos critères actuels, l’absence d’un seul compositeur nettement identifiable ou d’une esthétique de composition particulière en fait un objet d’art difficile à jauger. Mais la simplicité de  la musique elle-même constitue un attribut essentiel qui permet à la sentimentalité de l’histoire de s’exprimer et annonce véritablement la naissance d’un nouveau genre d’opéra anglais, le pastiche. De même, les caractéristiques très particulières des représentations théâtrales en Angleterre ont joué un rôle déterminant dans le développement de l’opéra sentimental à Londres.This article returns to the well-known notion of sentimental culture, and specifically, to sentimental opera derived from the English novel.  The notion that goodness must triumph, that a poor but honest girl should ‘make good’, and that such goodness should form a binding force between humans, was such a strong force in

    controle de qualidade são necessários em nível de beneficiamento. O objetivo deste trabalho foi desenvolver um método para caracterizar a eficiência da tipificação e da classificação por tamanho. Durante a safra de 1998 cinco locais de beneficiamento do Vale Bonaerense do Rio Colorado (Província de Buenos Aires, Argentina foram escolhidos ao acaso. Em todos eles, as variáveis medidas foram a largura da mesa de classificação, as velocidades de deslocamento e de rotação dos bulbos e também o número de bulbos/operário/hora. Antes e depois da classificação, amostras de 100 bulbos de cada tamanho foram escolhidas ao acaso, avaliadas e medidos seus diâmetros. A eficiência de classificação por tamanho foi determinada e o teste Qui-quadrado foi aplicado para comparar a freqüência de defeitos observada com aquela esperada dentro de cada categoria. Todas as packinghouses falharam em atingir os limites de defeitos preestabelecidos e somente uma delas atingiu as normas básicas da categoria classe Extra. Ainda, quando os equipamentos e o esquema operacional foram diferentes entre os locais de beneficiamento, o fluxo operacional (bulbos/operário/hora foi similar entre eles. Diferenças na performance de classificação podem ser atribuídas principalmente à seqüência de operações e à velocidade das correias de transporte. O equipamento e sua calibração afetou a classificação por tamanho, com os melhores resultados obtidos com o sistema de rolos divergentes. A metodologia proposta para caracterizar a eficiência pode ser considerada como uma ferramenta simples e útil para monitorar a qualidade das packinghouses de cebola.

O número de artérias sigmóideas variou de um a cinco. Verificou-se um plano arterial principal que iniciaria na ligadura da artéria mesentérica inferior, abaixo da origem da artéria cólica esquerda, sendo o sigmóide abaixado ao períneo. CONCLUSÃO: O conhecimento da vascularização do colón sigmóide e sua observação no transoperatório poderiam orientar a tática e técnica cirúrgica na operação de abaixamento cólico ao períneo e colostomia perineal.BACKGROUND: An anatomic study about the arterial vascularization of the sigmoid was performed in order to obtain guidelines for the surgical treatment of rectal carcinoma. AIM: In the proposed technique, the sigmoid is brought down to the perineum, after radical anal-rectal resection, including sphincterectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty-three anatomical pieces

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: atualmente cerca de 90% das operações anorretais são realizadas em regime ambulatorial. A técnica anestésica é fator fundamental na busca de reduzido tempo de internação, agilidade no ambiente cirúrgico e redução de custos nestes procedimentos. Não há consenso na literatura sobre qual o melhor tipo de anestesia para essas operações. OBJETIVO: comparar o tempo de ocupação de sala cirúrgica em pacientes submetidos a operações anorretais através da técnica de raquianestesia com bupivacaína 0,5% isobárica comparada com a técnica de anestesia venosa com propofol associada ao bloqueio perianal local com lidocaína a 2% e bupivacaína 0,5%. MÉTODOS: Foram incluídos 99 pacientes divididos em 2 grupos: grupo I (raquianestesia, composto por 50 pacientes e grupo II (anestesia combinada, composto por 49 pacientes. Foram estudados os procedimentos cirúrgicos e o tempo de procedimento anestésico-cirúrgico, e medida indireta da ocupação da sala cirúrgica. RESULTADOS: Não houve diferença estatística significativa entre os grupos estudados em relação ao tipo de procedimento cirúrgico, sexo e idade. O tempo médio do procedimento anestésico-cirúrgico, no grupo I foi de 53,1 min e de 44,08 min no grupo II (p=0,034. CONCLUSÕES: As duas técnicas estudadas foram eficazes. Houve menor tempo de procedimento anestésico-cirúrgico nos pacientes operados com anestesia combinada, com significância estatística.INTRODUCTION: around ninety percent of anorectal surgical procedures are performed as day cases. The choice of a proper anesthetic technique is important to achieve reduced time in the operating rooms, hospital stay and low costs. There is no evidence in the literature that a superior type of anesthesia for these procedures exists. OBJECTIVE: to compare the time spent on operating rooms in patients submitted to anorectal surgical procedures through spinal anesthesia (0,5% bupivacaine with combined anesthesia

    Full Text Available Os autores apresentam uma nova proposta para tratar disfunção do ventrículo direito no pós-operatório tardio da transposição das grandes artérias associada a grande comunicação interventricular e que tenha sido tratada pela inversão em nível atrial. Apresentam o caso de um paciente com 12 anos de idade, que havia sido submetido a operação de Senning associada a fechamento de comunicação interventricular e alivio de estenose pulmonar há 8 anos. A operação de Senning foi desfeita, restabelecendo-se a concordância atrioventricular, o remendo que fechava a comunicação interventricular foi ressecado, conectando-se a aorta com o ventrículo esquerdo. A artéria pulmonar foi seccionada transversalmente, próximo ao plano valvar. O coto proximal foi suturado e o distai, conectado ao ventrículo direito através de tubo valvulado de pericárdio bovino. A evolução foi satisfatória, revertendo-se a situação do paciente do grupo funcional IV para grupo I/II.A new proposal for the treatment of right ventricular dysfunction in late postoperative period of patients submitted to Senning operation is presented. The technique could be used in cases originally with transposition of the great arteries associated with pulmonary stenosis and a large VSD. A 12-year-old patient, who had been submitted, 8 years before, to an atrial inversion associated with closure of a large VSD and relieve of a pulmonary stonosis was submitted to this new operation. Senning operation was undone thus reestablishing atrio-ventricular concordance; the patch used for closure of VSD was removed, and the aorta was connected to the left-ventricle. Pulmonary artery was cut transversally, adjacent to the valvar horizontal plane. The proximal extremity was sutured and the distal was connected to the right ventricle through a valvar tube graft of bovine pericardium. The clinical course was uneventful and the patient improved from functional class IV to I/II.

O objetivo desse estudo foi diagnosticar a situação da Central de Triagem e Compostagem com Aterro Sanitário durante sua operação e após a sua desativação no município de Planalto, a fim de verificar sua adequação a legislação vigente e as razões que conduziram a sua desativação. Diante disso, foram realizadas coletas de dados junto à prefeitura e visitas ao empreendimento antes de sua desativação, onde avaliou-se a existência de cercas, sinalização, guarita/portaria, balança, acessos, iluminação e comunicação, instalações de apoio operacional, impermeabilização da base e laterais, drenagem, coleta seletiva e educação ambiental, espalhamento e compactação do resíduo, tratamento do lixiviado, proximidade da área com nascentes e águas superficiais, presença de animais e pessoas e monitoramento da área. Após a desativação da Central de Triagem e Compostagem com Aterro Sanitário, realizou-se novamente uma visita para verificação dos seguintes parâmetros: plano de recuperação, remoção dos resíduos, recuperação executada na área, coleta e tratamento do lixiviado e gás, monitoramento e manutenção da recuperação. Verificou-se a precariedade das instalações do local durante sua operação e após sua desativação, as causas da desativação do empreendimento e as técnicas de recuperação aplicadas, sendo que a mesma se apresenta de forma insuficiente e inadequada, visto que os resíduos depositados continuam poluindo por meio do chorume gerado na decomposição dos mesmos.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho avalia, na soldagem em operação, a influência do arrefecimento causado por um líquido fluindo em contato com a parede interna de uma tubulação sendo soldada por TIG (GTAW e eletrodo revestido (SMAW. A soldagem foi realizada na ligação de conexões de aço ASTM A105 a um tubo API 5L Gr X60 com espessura de 11 mm e de 6 mm. A circulação do fluido foi feita com água potável em duas faixas de temperatura, de 6 a 10ºC e 26 a 36ºC. Foram simuladas quatro juntas soldadas, avaliadas por meio de ensaios não destrutivos (inspeção visual, líquido penetrante, partículas magnéticas e ultrasom. Esta parte do trabalho apresenta os resultados dos ensaios destrutivos (tração, dobramento, impacto, fratura e dureza e análise macrográfica e micrográfica para o tubo de 11 mm de espessura. As juntas soldadas não apresentaram os problemas típicos da soldagem em operação, como trincas a frio e risco de perfuração. Os procedimentos de soldagem puderam ser qualificados, atendendo os critérios de aceitação das normas pertinentes. Foi possível concluir que o resfriamento acelerado causado pelo fluido em circulação, elevou consideravelmente a taxa de resfriamento na superfície interna do tubo. O efeito do arrefecimento causado pelo fluido no interior do tubo foi mais significativo que a temperatura deste fluido, tendo provocado o aumento na dureza da zona fundida e zona termicamente afetada e reduzido o alongamento no ensaio de tração, porém ainda em valores adequados para o tubo de 11 mm de espessura.This work evaluates for in-service welding, the influence of cooling caused by a liquid flowing in contact with the inner wall of a pipe being welded by TIG (GTAW and stick electrode (SMAW.

A jovem foi desenganada diante do diagnóstico da doença, mas sua mãe agarrou-se na “fé em Deus”, pois “Ele opera milagres”, dizendo que dela retiraram “coisa feia”, cheia de dentes, cabelos e gorduras, que não sabia inteiramente explicar, mas que “Jesus cura”. A mãe, evangélica, mantinha a Bíblia na enfermaria, orando em voz alta diante do leito da menina. Aos poucos, amenizou-se a gravidade do caso, deixando perplexo o saber biomédico, diante do reconhecimento de outras buscas de cura, como através da oração, que levou aquela jovem a sair de alta hospitalar. Esse episódio, observado atentamente pela coautora deste artigo, permite uma discussão que transcende o âmbito da biomedicina, do ponto de vista antropológico, especialmente no campo da chamada “eficácia simbólica”, em que xamanismo e psicanálise podem ser chamados para conferir sentido a esse drama, cujo desfecho mostrou-se favorável para a jovem e sua mãe, até o ponto que foi possível observar.

    Full Text Available Na medida em que a economia global se expande e os mercados se tornam mais abertos para os investimentos, as empresas dividem atividades entre as suas unidades estabelecidas em diferentes países. A determinação dos preços praticados em operações de transferência entre companhias associadas situadas em diferentes jurisdições fiscais é chamada de Preços de Transferência. Para fins tributários, os preços de transferência determinam o valor de receita que cada empresa recebe e o referente valor de tributos incidentes sobre receitas e/ou resultados no país exportador e no país importador, sendo um assunto relevante para as administrações tributárias dos países onde essas operações ocorrem e para as empresas com unidades em mais de um país. O presente estudo apresenta uma análise relacionada aos Preços de Transferência praticados por uma empresa brasileira que importa matéria-prima de suas empresas vinculadas estabelecidas em outras jurisdições tributárias. É apresentado um estudo de caso descritivo que ilustra essa situação e as regras brasileiras de Preço de Transferência. Ao final, conclui-se que o contribuinte deve aplicar mais de uma metodologia de cálculo dentre as disponibilizadas pela legislação brasileira, a fim de identificar a que resulte em menor ajuste tributário. Conclui-se, adicionalmente, que a temática dos preços de transferência depende de muitas variáveis individuais, as quais devem ser estudadas e analisadas caso a caso, de acordo com as particularidades envolvidas em cada situação.As the global economy continues to expand and markets become more open to investment, enterprises share activities among their units established in different countries.

    Full Text Available Na conjuntura atual, eliminação de custos, satisfação dos clientes e aumento da produtividade é algo, no mínimo, desejável para as organizações. Exatamente neste viés, a presente pesquisa aborda a utilização de técnicas e filosofias amplamente abordadas e difundidas em gestão de operações; porém, em vez de usá-las isoladamente, propõe-se sua utilização conjunta. Neste contexto, integram-se o Mapeamento de Processos, a Gestão da Capacidade, a Teoria das Restrições (TOC e o Empowerment. Por meio de entrevistas junto aos funcionários, da coleta de dados e da observação direta do processo produtivo, foi possível mapear os processos, definir as capacidades, identificar os gargalos, levantar o nível de maturidade dos funcionários e propor soluções por meio da aplicação do Empowerment. Como resultado, contatou-se a possibilidade de melhoria no sistema de concessão de créditos da empresa pesquisada (Banco, possibilitando um aumento da produtividade em 27,78% e uma redução de custos da ordem de 4,5 milhões de reais.In today's conjuncture characterized by extreme global competition, cost elimination, customer satisfaction and productivity are rather essential for organizations to survive and compete. In accordance with this scenario, the present research proposes an integrated approach of many operations management philosophies and techniques, which are usually adopted in an isolated manner by many companies. The proposed approach integrates process mapping techniques, capacity management, Theory of Constraints and Empowerment and was applied to a credit concession process of a major Brazilian bank. Through employee interviews, primary data collection and direct observation it was possible to map processes, define capacities, identify bottlenecks, determine the personnel maturity level and, as a consequence, propose a solution by means of the Empowerment approach. As a result, a productivity increase of 27.78% and a

Il lettore, tuttavia, dovrà armarsi di pazienza, poiché non prenderemo la via breve. Prima di arrivare a Wikipedia, esamineremo la relazione segno-referente e quella mezzo-messaggio. Contesteremo la semplificazione che riduce la comunicazione a mera trasmissione di messaggi e quella che riduce l’evoluzione sociale allo sviluppo delle tecnologie mediatiche. Criticheremo la nozione di villaggio globale, di oralità secondaria e la loro applicazione al mondo della Rete. Dimostreremo, in particolare, che la comunicazione telematica non conduce a una nuova forma di oralità. Solo a questo punto, al riparo dagli equivoci del determinismo sociale e tecnologico, potremo infine affrontare l’innovazione mediale introdotta dall’invenzione dei wiki. Riflettendo sui processi e sui prodotti della mediazione comunicativa, illustreremo quindi come Wikipedia abbia dato vita a una forma di comunicazione davvero nuova.

    2010-07-01

    This work concerns the collection of 30 voice range profiles (VRPs) of female operatic voice. We address the questions: Is there a need for a singer's protocol in VRP acquisition? Are physiological measurements sufficient or should the measurement of performance capabilities also be included? Can we address the female singing voice in general or is there a case for categorizing voices when studying phonetographic data? Subjects performed a series of structured tasks involving both standard speech voice protocols and additional singing tasks. Singers also completed an extensive questionnaire. Physiological VRPs differ from performance VRPs. Two new VRP metrics, the voice area above a defined level threshold and the dynamic range independent from the fundamental frequency (F(0)), were found to be useful in the analysis of singer VRPs. Task design had no effect on performance VRP outcomes. Voice category differences were mainly attributable to phonation frequency-based information. Results support the clinical importance of addressing the vocal instrument as it is used in performance. Equally important is the elaboration of a protocol suitable for the singing voice. The given context and instructions can be more important than task design for performance VRPs. Yet, for physiological VRP recordings, task design remains critical. Both types of VRPs are suggested for a singer's voice evaluation. Copyright (c) 2010 The Voice Foundation. Published by Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved.

    The history of quark physics is briefly reviewed, followed by an introduction to quantum chromodynamics, leading terms, and the OZI rule. The basic physics of hadron structure as revealed by experiment is then discussed, followed by the models used to treat it. The two complementary models are the quasinuclear colored quark model and the quark-parton model. Another model for orthogonal physical properties is the bag model. Several applications of the constituent quark model are considered, including hadron masses, spin physics, and multiquark physics. The theoretical basis and phenomenology of the OZI rule forbids processes described by disconnected quark line diagrams

    Full Text Available In this brief paper, we solve the relativistic kinematics related to the intersection be- tween a relativistic beam of particles (neutrinos, e.g. and consecutive detectors. The gravitational effects are neglected, but the effect of the Earth rotation is taken into con- sideration under a simple approach in which we consider two instantaneous inertial reference frames in relation to the fixed stars: an instantaneous inertial frame of refer- ence having got the instantaneous velocity of rotation (about the Earth axis of rotation of the Cern at one side, the lab system of reference in which the beam propagates, and another instantaneous inertial system of reference having got the instantaneous velocity of rotation of the detectors at Gran Sasso at the other side, this latter being the system of reference of the detectors. Einstein’s relativity theory provides a velocity of intersection between the beam and the detectors greater than the velocity of light in the empty space as derived in this paper, in virtue of the Earth rotation. We provide a simple calculation for the discrepancy between a correct measure for the experiment and a measure arising due to the effect derived in this paper.

    period developed esophagitis.RACIONAL: Nas operações de cardiomiotomia para tratamento do megaesôfago ocorre recidiva dos sintomas em até 15% dos pacientes, sendo que alguns necessitam reoperação. OBJETIVO: Avaliar os resultados de reoperações através de cardioplastia e gastrectomia parcial em Y-de-Roux, conforme técnica proposta por Serra-Dória. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODOS: Foram estudados de forma retrospectiva, 20 pacientes com megaesôfago previamente tratados por cardiomiotomia. A causa de recidiva dos sintomas foi esofagite de refluxo em nove (45,0%, miotomia incompleta em um (5,0%, cicatrização da miotomia em cinco (25,0% e presença de megaesôfago avançado em cinco (25.0%. Analisaram-se as complicações intra e pós-operatórias. Os pacientes foram avaliados sob o ponto de vista clínico (disfagia, regurgitação, pirose e variação de peso, radiológico e endoscópico, no pré e no pós-operatório imediato e tardio. RESULTADOS: Cinco (25,0% doentes apresentaram complicações no pós-operatório imediato. Não houve mortalidade. Todos os doentes melhoraram da disfagia, com quase total desaparecimento da regurgitação e pirose. Houve manutenção ou aumento de peso em 64,7% dos pacientes. O estudo radiológico mostrou diminuição do calibre do esôfago em 53,0% e manutenção nos demais. Não houve aumento do calibre em nenhum dos pacientes. No exame endoscópico realizado no pós-operatório tardio em 17 pacientes, observou-se que 6 entre 9 que apresentavam esofagite de refluxo, melhoraram; 2 entre 8, que apresentavam esôfago normal no pré-operatório, desenvolveram esofagite. CONCLUSÕES: A operação de Serra-Dória para tratamento do megaesôfago, operado por cardiomiotomia com recidiva dos sintomas, apresentou baixa morbidade e ausência de mortalidade. Permitiu expressivo alívio dos sintomas e diminuição do calibre do esôfago em vários doentes. Possibilitou, também, melhora da esofagite de refluxo, havendo, entretanto, a possibilidade

Os resultados permitiram correlacionar a estabilidade do arco com o nível de oxidação das camadas aspergidas.( Medidas de temperatura do revestimento aspergido mostraram que, desde que o processo de aspersão ocorra de forma ininterrupta até a espessura final do revestimento, a temperatura superficial é crescente com a espessura do depósito, o que resulta num maior teor de óxidos, associado tanto à uma instabilidade do cordão como à uma maior penetração da poça fundida. Difratogramas de raios-X nas camadas aspergidas e análises do teor de oxigênio na zona fundida dos cordões de solda comprovaram a influência desse elemento na alteração do perfil da zona fundida. Como alternativa ao uso de ar comprimido, foi avaliada sua substituição pelo argônio como gás de arraste, verificando-se efeitos muito benéficos - redução significativa da penetração e boa estabilidade do arco voltaico - admite-se que advindos da redução da oxidação da camada aspergida pelo efeito protetor do gás inerte.

    Full Text Available RESUMONo âmbito das decisões de natureza microeconômica e gerencial das empresas, observa-se o crescente reconhecimento da importância das decisões do transporte para o desempenho da logística, pelo fato de que as decisões de transporte assumem trade-offs relevantes para com outras funções e processos logísticos, como, por exemplo, estoques, armazenagem e compras, e afetam diretamente os resultados dos serviços e custos logísticos. Isso implica considerar os transportes não como “demanda derivada”, na tradição neoclássica, mas sim como variáveis explicativas de decisões empresariais. O presente artigo buscou, portanto, avaliar a relação público-privada na tomada de decisão empresarial, por meio de um estudo de caso, objetivando analisar o processo de exportação sob as perspectivas das decisões empresariais orientadas para o gerenciamento dos custos de transação. Em síntese, a pesquisa demonstra que esta relação público-privada formata um ambiente pouco adequado ao inconteste acirramento da competição no cenário global. Destacadamente, no caso investigado, os parâmetros básicos em torno dos quais se formam os atributos, custos e nível de serviço, são afetados negativamente por esta relação. Por sua vez, o ambiente institucional do Brasil, no que se refere às operações portuárias, impõe severos custos de transação.ABSTRACTRegarding the decisions of microeconomic and managerial nature, the increasing acknowledgment of the importance of the transport decisions for the logistics performance is noticed, once the transport decisions assume relevant trade-offs with other logistics functions and processes, such as inventory, warehousing, purchasing as well as directly affects the outcomes of the logistics services and costs. This implies in considering the transport mot as a “derived demand” in the neoclassic tradition, but as explicative variables of the management decisions. Therefore, the present

  2. Il trauma come “valore aggiunto”. L’opera letteraria di Gustaaf Peek

    Chiara Beltrami Gottmer

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Gustaaf Peek is a Dutch writer and poet who translates art into words. His works are often harsh, difficult to understand for the reader and complicated. He hunts for unknown facts in history as well as in daily life, for instance, in his first novel Armin, with the monstrosity of the Lebensborn project in Nazi Germany, or in his second novel Dover where he discusses the reality of illegal immigration and warlords living in complete freedom in western towns. It is art for art’s sake. But the novels written by Peek also contain the red thread of traumatic experiences. All of his characters suffer from one or many traumas, and act consequently. To the author this was a kind of wake-up call, a new way to consider his work and a new way to engage in the literary world. The aim of this article is to try to explain where Peek wrote about trauma and how. His topics and writing methods have also been illustrated.

    Full Text Available This article looks at the bilingual literary work of César Moro, considered one of the most important Surrealist authors in Hispanic America. The poet left for Europe at the age of 22 to become a dancer and painter. But, once he met Breton, Éluard, and Péret in Paris, he joined the Surrealist group. He wrote some Surrealist reviews and began to write poetry in French. Moro continued to use French as his main means of expression, even when he returned to Peru in 1933 and moved to Mexico some years later. This article aims to analyse Moro’s bilingual production from a translingual point of view. According to recent research, translingual writers are those who express themselves in various languages, especially other than their mother tongue.

    CERN Document Server

    Cassidy, David C

    1996-01-01

    Il genio di Werner Heisenberg attraversa l'orizzonte della fisica del nostro secolo come una meteora. Testimoniano della fecondità e dell'originalità del suo pensiero non solo il Nobel che gli fu assegnato a soli 32 anni, ma soprattutto i decisivi impulsi da lui dati alla fisica quantistica, alla teoria delle particelle elementari, alla teoria del nucleo. Si deve a Heisenberg quel "principio di indeterminazione" che ha rivoluzionato non solo il corso della fisica ma il modo di concepire la posizione dell'uomo nell'universo. L'interesse del libro, però, vuole andare oltre la fisica, giacché il curriculum del "ragazzo di campagna dei biondi capelli" rispecchia in forma emblematica l'ambiguo rapporto della scienza col potere.

    Andreas KLEINERT

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available The paper gives an overview on the history and present state of the edition of the complete works of Leonhard Euler (1707–1783. After several failed initiatives in the 19th century, the project began in 1907 with the edition of Euler’s printed works. The works were divided into three series: I. Mathematics (29 volumes; II. Mechanics and Astronomy (31 volumes; and III. Physics and Miscellaneous (12 volumes. After several ups and downs due to two World Wars and economic problems, the publication of the printed works with a total of 72 volumes is nearly finished. Only two volumes on perturbation theory in astronomy are still missing. The publication of series IV (manuscripts and correspondence started in 1967 as a joint project of the Swiss and the Soviet academies of sciences. The manuscript edition was postponed, and the project focussed on Euler’s correspondence which contains approximately 3000 letters, 1000 of them written by Euler. The correspondents include famous mathematicians of the 18th century like d’Alembert, Clairaut and the Bernoullis, but also many less-known people with whom Euler corresponded on a great variety of subjects. A major problem is to find and to finance appropriate editors who are able to read French, Latin, and the old German handwriting, and who are acquainted with history, culture and science of the 18th century. During the last 50 years, the editors gathered copies or scans of most of the preserved Euler’s letters. The original letters addressed to Euler were made available to the editorial group in Switzerland by the Russian Academy of Sciences before World War I, and before their restitution in 1947 the editors made fairly good photographs that are now an important part of the material basis of the edition. Each volume of the letter series (VIA contains Euler’s correspondence with one or more of his contemporaries, presented in a chronological order. Up to the present day, four volumes of the correspondence have been published, in addition to an inventory of all known letters to and from Euler, including short summaries and useful information about the date, language and location of the existing copies, and former publication. Four more volumes are in progress and will be published in 2016 or 2017. The remaining letters that are not intended for publication in the printed volumes are planned to be made available in an online edition.

The author builds a narrative path, with autobiographical reflections, which focus on the complexity of migrant subjectivity and his double epistemological status: he is both emigrant and immigrant, following the pattern of “double absence” theorized by Sayad. Therefore, the literary experience becomes a possibility of cultural rehabilitation in a subject in transit, marked by a non-dialectic synthesis of his identity produced by the arguably compulsory crossing of the border.

  17. Critica e derive del mito nell’opera di Walter Benjamin

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matteo Meloni

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available La ri essione critica sul mito e sulle sue derive nel mondo moderno sono pre- senti in buona parte del pensiero benjaminiano. A cominciare dagli scritti di filosofia del linguaggio nei quali il mito biblico istituisce il fondamento ontologico della parola originaria, tra rifiuto della storia e messianismo, fino alle considerazioni sul diritto e sul concetto di destino nella società borghese. Ma è soprattutto nella critica letteraria che Benjamin espone le sue più brillanti intuizioni: dallo sprigionarsi delle forze primordiali della natura che, nelle Affinità elettive di Goethe, tra violenza del diritto e libertà etica, si impossessano dei personaggi, alla dialettica del “risveglio” con Proust e i surrealisti, e all’esperienza profonda della vie antérieur di Baudelaire. Così, senza mai distanziarsi dal radicamento della condizione storica del suo tempo e senza mai cadere in facile misticismo, Walter Benjamin ha acutamente ispezionato le tracce del mito nella modernità, auspicando con intelligenza la liberazione umana dalla schiavitù della barbarie contingenti.

  19. Exposure to smoking in soap operas and movies: smoking cessation and attempts to quit.

    Madewell, Zachary J; Figueiredo, Valeska Carvalho; Harbertson, Judith; Pérez, Ramona L; Novotny, Thomas

    2017-09-21

    The objectives of this research were to evaluate whether there was an association between seeing an actor smoke in telenovelas, Brazilian films, or international films, and trying to quit and quitting among adult Brazilian smokers. Data from 39,425 participants in the Global Adult Tobacco Survey were used. Quit ratio (former smoker/former smoker + ever smoker) and proportions of current, former, and never smokers were calculated. Multivariable weighted regression was used to determine significant associations between quitting smoking and exposure to telenovelas and films. For current smokers, the odds of trying to quit were significantly higher among those who saw an actor smoking in a Brazilian film. Those who believed smoking caused serious illness and had rules in the home prohibiting smoking were significantly more likely to have tried to quit or had quit smoking. Exposure to smoking in the media may be different in adults than adolescents.

    Full Text Available Che la storia della lingua sia una disciplina linguistica di data recente, fondata nell'800, soprattutto grazie alle ricerche pionieristiche di insigni filologi tedeschi, è un'opinione comunemente accettata, ed essa è probabilmente anche giustificata attraverso la classificazione datane di disciplina. A questo dato di fatto si deve senz'altro l'opinione altrettanto estesa che prima dell'800 non esistesse il concetto di linguistica diacronica o cambiamento linguistico in senso scientifico, come pure quella non meno erronea che la linguistica, come scienza, sia stata fondata solo nell'800.
