    Japan has to prepare itself to behave accurately, and to stay technologically competitive, in the severe competition age to come in which it will fail to find leaders to follow. To fulfill this goal, Japan has to collect sufficient information and analyze it relative to the current state and future prospect of industrial technologies in Japan and overseas and various factors that will influence them, and to develop industrial technology related policies based firmly on scientific and theoretical foundations to be established using the thus-acquired knowledge. Under the circumstances, a survey is conducted of innovative, technological foundations, such as industrial technology related efforts in and out of Japan. The report consists of two volumes that cover what are described below. For the survey of technology related policies pursued in various countries abroad, literature and the like are investigated concerning technology related measures, budgets, and decision making processes in America, Britain, Germany, France, and the European Union, and the results are compiled so that their systems may be compared with each other. In the survey of Japan's technology related innovative systems, case studies are made about commodities over which Japan is relatively high in competitive power. Specifically, commodities manufactured by Japan's businesses and occupying 75% or more of the global share are investigated. (NEDO)

    With an objective to promote technological developments smoothly, surveys and discussions were given on how the improvements in intellectual foundations are worked out inside and outside the country. In surveying the status of improving the databases inside and outside the country, it was disclosed that the databases both inside and outside the country are arranged under the auspices of the governments. The reason for this is considered because the intellectual foundation improvement is difficult to be established as a business. In order to structure a framework to put together and publicize the data including those possessed by the private sector, surveys and discussions were given on the interest among titles to intellectual properties, contractual relationship between the database improving parties and the data providing parties, relationship with taxation systems, and how the incentives should be provided for publicizing the data. In discussing a model case to utilize data acquired by the private sector, it was concluded that assistance by the governments is indispensable for the organizations for structuring and maintaining the databases to continue their activities independently. Among the data measured and managed at the national level, problems in the publicizing method thereof were discussed especially on the data related to ocean information. (NEDO)

    The new energy vision of Mikata Town, Fukui Prefecture, protruding into Wakasa Bay is described. The Jomon period (as represented by the Torihama shell mound remains) which was based on the circulation of materials and equality is referred to in the vision aiming to rebuild Mikata into a town close to nature and friendly to the environment. The project is based on faith in the said circulation believed to make Mikata symbiotic with nature and the historic culture. Under the project, use of fossil fuel will be suppressed, wastes will be recycled, and natural energy will be adopted. The basic principle is organized on the faith in circulation, and covers the renewal of residential circumstances, interaction between industries and townspeople's daily life, traffic network (eco-traffic system), and a pastoral space museum which will utilize wind power. The town will be zoned into three regions: a seashore and lake park, a base of living, and a mountainous region. In a program for introducing new energy into the town, the approach of private vehicles to the sightseeing routes around the Five Lakes of Mikata will be controlled, and the tourists will be requested to change to low pollution vehicles, such as electric cars or solar cars, at an eco-station to be provided at a Park of Jomon Romance. Power to the Jomon park facilities will come from photovoltaic power generation. Cost for the project is estimated though roughly. (NEDO)

    Full Text Available ResumoO objetivo deste estudo foi verificar os efeitos do conhecimento de performance (CP, com base no teste do desempenho motor do nado crawl (TDMND (Corazza et al., 2006, na aprendizagem do nado crawl. Participaram do estudo 41 adultos. Enquanto um grupo recebeu CP após boas tentativas, o outro recebeu CP após as más tentativas. O TDMNC, composto por 29 itens, foi usado para a elaboração das informações de CP, assim como para a constatação dos níveis de aprendizagem. Para ambos os grupos, independentemente do CP fornecido, foi detectada diferença entre o pré e o pós-teste, o que indica sucesso no processo de aprendizagem. No entanto, na comparação entre os pós-testes, não foram observadas diferenças significativas entre os grupos. A complexidade do teste e a dificuldade dos aprendizes em discriminar entre boas e más tentativas de prática são discutidos.

    Eduardo Vignoto Fernandes

    Full Text Available No presente trabalho, os efeitos comportamentais e imunomoduladores da fluoxetina foram avaliados num modelo animal de depressão, o nado forçado. Nesse, o comportamento de flutuar é sensível a antidepressivos e é usado como índice de desespero comportamental. Foram utilizados dois grupos experimentais, sendo um grupo controle tratado com salina e outro grupo teste tratado com a fluoxetina, ambos administrados por via intra-peritoneal. Os animais foram tratados três vezes ao dia por 12 dias. Adicionalmente, a resposta imune humoral a uma imunoestimulação (hemácias de carneiro foi avaliada. A fluoxetina provocou aumento no tempo em flutuação, queda na massa corporal e menor produção total de anticorpos. Os resultados indicam uma modulação simultânea do comportamento e do sistema imunológico pela fluoxetina.

    The appearance of new assistance materials like the parachute make it necessary for coaches to know about the impact that such devices have in swimming. To study this theme 16 national and international swimmers between 19 and 24 years old have been selected. The swimmers participated in four tests that consisted in freestyle (crawl stroke swimming for 10 and 45 seconds at maximum intensity, both with and without the parachute. These tests analysed stroke frequency and stroke length. A within-subjects design has been applied and a study of the facts has been made with an AVAR with repeat measures. The results indicate that the stroke frequency decreases (p<0.05 in the parachute swim during the 10 and 45 second tests, compared with the normal swim. It was also observed that the stroke frequency is higher (p<0.01 in the 10 second test than in the 45 second test. The stroke length is higher (p<0.01 in the normal swim test than in the parachute test. With respect to the swim periods of time, the stroke length is higher (p<0.01 in the 45 second test than in the 10 second test. The parachute swim produces important changes in stroke frequency and stroke length in both the 10 and 45 second tests in subjects swimming the freestyle at maximum intensity.
    KEY WORDS: swimming, swim resistance, parachute, crawl, freestyle,. stroke frequency, stroke length.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: O objetivo do presente estudo foi identificar a presença de transtorno do comportamento alimentar (TCA ou síndromes precursoras e o grau de distorção da imagem corporal em atletas de elite de nado sincronizado. Essa modalidade é considerada de risco para desenvolvimento de TCA por valorizar, além de outros aspectos, a leveza e beleza de movimentos que, de certa forma, estão associados a baixa massa corporal. MÉTODOS: Foram avaliadas 27 atletas de nado sincronizado, sendo 19 da categoria juniores (15,6 ± 0,8 anos e oito da categoria de seniores (19,0 ± 1,3 anos que compunham a seleção brasileira na época do estudo (2000. Um grupo de 32 adolescentes não-atletas (15,0 ± 1,6 anos foi usado para comparação com as atletas. Os procedimentos metodológicos adotados foram: aplicação de três instrumentos de auto-relato, validados. 1 EAT-26 - presença de comportamentos alimentares inadequados; 2 BITE - presença de atitudes sugestivas de bulimia nervosa; e 3 BSQ - insatisfação da auto-imagem corporal. RESULTADOS: Embora tanto o grupo de atletas, quanto o de não-atletas tenham apresentado parâmetros antropométricos compatíveis com padrões saudáveis para a idade e sexo, os resultados evidenciam a presença de insatisfação com a auto-imagem corporal e a adoção de práticas patológicas de controle da massa corporal, sobretudo entre atletas da categoria juniores e entre as adolescentes não-atletas. CONCLUSÕES: Os resultados encontrados no presente estudo retratam uma tendência mundial de preocupação com a aparência entre adolescentes capaz de levá-las à adoção de condutas não-saudáveis.OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to identify the Eating Behavior Disorder (EBD or precursory syndromes and the level of distortion of the body image of elite synchronized swimming athletes. This sport modality is considered of risk for development of eating disorders for valuing, among other aspects, the

    Full Text Available The swimming behavior exhibited by specimens of L. fasciatus and O. uniformis was analyzed frame-by-frame with video observation recorded with a digital camera, attached to a stereomicroscope. Adults of O. uniformis, an aquatic insect, swim with all three pairs of legs. During the process of swimming the majority of the abdomen and rostrum remain submerged, part of the fore and hind tibiae remain above the surface, while the mid tibiae remain submerged. The mesothoracic legs, during the power-stroke stage, provide the greatest thrust while the metathoracic legs provide the least forward propulsion. The prothoracic legs, extended forward, help to direct the swimming. The semi-aquatic specie L. fasciatus shows the same swimming style as O. uniformis, that is, with movement of all the three pairs of legs; the mesothoracic legs are responsible for the main propulsion. The insect body remains on the water surface during the process of swimming, while the legs remain submerged. Both species complete a swimming cycle in 0.33 and 0.32 seconds, respectively, with an average speed of 1.38 cm/s and a maximum and minimum swimming duration time of 11.15 and 5.05 minutes, respectively, for L. fasciatus. The swimming behavior exhibited by O. uniformis and L. fasciatus corresponds to the style known as a breast strokelike maneuver. This is the first record of this kind of swimming for both species here observed and increases to seven the number of genera of Curculionidae exhibiting this behavior.O comportamento de nado exibido por indivíduos de L. fasciatus e O. uniformis foi analisado quadro a quadro através de imagens obtidas com o auxílio de uma câmera fotográfica digital com opção de vídeo, acoplada a um estereomicroscópio. Foi demonstrado que O. uniformis, espécie aquática, nada com o auxílio dos três pares de pernas. Durante este processo a maior parte do abdome e rostro localizam-se abaixo da superfície da água, parte das t

    Full Text Available Os objetivos deste estudo foram: i caracterizar o nado submáximo e máximo do ponto de vista cinemático; ii verificar a influência das variáveis cinemáticas na prova máxima de 200 metros crawl. Nove nadadores de elite nacionais realizaram dois testes: um submáximo, descontínuo de intensidade progressiva; outro máximo, que consistiu em uma simulação de uma prova de 200 m crawl. Foram estudados os parâmetros cinemáticos gerais da mecânica da braçada, a duração de cada fase do ciclo gestual, a velocidade do centro de massa e a variação intracíclica da velocidade horizontal. Verificaram-se diferenças cinemáticas significativas da frequência gestual, velocidade de deslocamento do centro de massa, duração total do ciclo gestual, duração da ação subaquática propulsora e da velocidade do centro de massa na fase de recuperação entre os testes. Identificou-se associações significativas entre o teste máximo e algumas variáveis cinemáticas como a velocidade do centro de massa e índice de nado.The main aims of this study were i to perform a kinematic characterization of sub and maximal swimming speed; ii to investigate the associations between the kinematic profiles and the 200 m front crawl style.

    Full Text Available Serotonin plays a role at the pathophysiology of depression in humans and in experimental models. The present study investigated the depressive behavior and the weigh evolution in adult rats (60 days treated from the 1st to the 21st postnatal day with fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (10 mg/kg, sc, daily. The depressive behavior was induced by the forced swim test (FST. The animals were submitted to two sessions of FST: 1st session for 15 min and the 2nd session 24h later, for 5 min. During the 2nd session the Latency of the Attempt of Escape (LAE and Behavioral Immobility (BI were appraised. The Fluoxetine group when compared to the Control group, showed an increase in LAE and a decrease in BI. The neonatal administration of fluoxetine reduced the depressive behavior in adult rats, possibly by increase in the brain serotonergic activity. This alteration can be associated to process of neuroadaptation.Estudos em humanos e em modelos experimentais demonstram que a serotonina (5-HT participa da fisiopatologia da depressão. O presente estudo investigou o comportamento depressivo e a evolução ponderal de ratos adultos jovens (60 dias tratados do 1º ao 21º dia pós-natal com fluoxetina, um inibidor seletivo de recaptação da serotonina, (10 mg/kg, sc, diariamente. A depressão experimental foi induzida através do teste de nado forçado (NF. Os animais foram submetidos a duas sessões de NF, a primeira por 15 min e a segunda após 24 h, por 5 min. Durante os 5 min de NF a latência da tentativa de fuga (LTF e o tempo de imobilidade (TI foram avaliados. O grupo tratado com fluoxetina apresentou aumento da LTF e redução do TI comparado ao controle. A administração neonatal de fluoxetina reduziu o comportamento depressivo em ratos adultos, possivelmente em função do aumento da atividade serotoninérgica cerebral. Esta alteração poderá estar relacionada a processos neuroadaptativos.

    Full Text Available Na natação, atualmente, a avaliação do desempenho dos nadadores, apóiam-se em diversas metodologias de observação da competição. As variáveis biomecânicas representam um importante recurso para análise da performance esportiva por serem indicadores da eficiência do nado, com aplicação simples e objetiva. O objetivo deste estudo foi realizar uma análise descritiva do desempenho na prova de 100 metros nado Livre feminino, baseada nas variáveis: comprimento de braçada (CB, frequência de braçada (FB, velocidade de nado (VN, índice de nado (IN, velocidade média escalar (Vm, tempo de saída (Ts e tempo de virada (Tv, a fim de observar o comportamento e influências na performance. Foram capturadas imagens por uma câmera mini-DV, analisadas por um "software" editor de vídeo. As variáveis CB, VN e IN foram encontradas indiretamente, sem considerar as fases de saída e virada. Ts e Tv foram obtidos através da linha do tempo do software. A análise de dados mostra para atleta 1: CB 2,00 m, FB 0,89 Hz, VN 1,78 m/s e IN 3,56 m²/s; atleta 2: CB 1,82 m, FB 0,97 Hz, VN 1,76 m/s, IN 3,20 m²/s; atleta 3: CB 1,91 m, FB 0,92 Hz, VN 1,75 m/s, IN 3,32 m²/s. Conclui-se que: o desempenho final apresentou comportamentos similares nos três primeiros trechos da prova indicando uma influência semelhante dessas variáveis sobre o desempenho das atletas. No último quarto da prova as variáveis apresentam maior interferência na performance final, sendo este decorrente de uma possível diminuição da eficiência mecânica do nado devido ao aumento do arrasto e redução da força propulsiva.The performance evaluation of swimmers is based on many methodologies of watching the competition. Biomechanical variables represent an important resource for analyzing the performance of swimmers because they are simple and objective indicators of swimming efficiency. The objective of this research was to observe how biomechanical variables affect

Se analiza detalladamente los volúmenes de nado propuestos por el Programa de Preparación del Deportista (PPD, donde se aprecia que los atletas de la provincia no logran cumplir lo indicado por el mismo, siendo el inicio tardío en la práctica del deporte, la carencia de piscinas con un funcionamiento estable y las bajas temperaturas en el periodo invernal, los que más afectan el proceso. Provocando esto que no se alcancen resultados satisfactorios y con ello desmotivación y deserción por parte de los alumnos. La aplicación de los nuevos volúmenes inferiores a los PPD nos permitió obtener una mejor progresión y resultados satisfactorios en los eventos que se participa en las distintas competencias.

    This paper summarizes the former half part of the analysis made on business strategies of major international oil companies. The net earning of R/D Shell in fiscal 1994 increased by 1.8 billion dollars to 6.3 billion dollars. Its loan rate decreased to 16.7%. It increased the crude oil production by 3% to 2.2 million B/D, and the natural gas production by 1.2% to 7.3 billion cfd. The upstream department had the net earning decreased by 23% to 2.4 billion dollars because of decline in crude oil price. The net earning of the downstream department showed an increase by 20% over that in the previous year to 3.2 billion dollars. The chemical department had its business turned to black ink. The net earning of Exxon in the same year decreased by 200 million dollars to 5.1 billion dollars due to the reduced crude oil price and low refining margin. The upstream and downstream departments showed a decrease of 530 million and 630 million dollars respectively. The chemical department had an increase of 130% to 950 million dollars as a result of the recovery in the European markets. The net earning of Mobile in the same year showed a decrease of 2.1 billion dollars, ending in the amount of 1.1 billion dollars. The decrease has been caused by the decline in crude oil and natural gas prices and a 30% reduction in the refining margin. The chemical department changed for the better, with improved sales margins in oil products sold in overseas markets. 28 figs.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar o comportamento de variáveis fisiológicas durante uma sessão de treino de nado sincronizado realizada na fase de preparação para as Olimpíadas de Atenas 2004. MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: A amostra utilizada foi constituída pelo dueto (24 ± 0 anos representante do Brasil em Atenas 2004. A coleta de dados foi realizada durante uma sessão de treinamento com duração de 198 minutos. O treino se iniciou com a parte física, seguida da parte técnica. Para a determinação da glicemia e da concentração de beta-hidroxibutirato foi utilizado o monitor Optium® com suas respectivas tiras. As concentrações de cortisol e das enzimas lactato desidrogenase (LDH e creatina quinase (CK foram determinadas por radioimunoensaio (DPC© e kits comerciais (CELM®, respectivamente. O acompanhamento da freqüência cardíaca (FC foi realizado com o freqüêncimetro Advantage Polar®. RESULTADOS: Foi observada redução (~2% do peso corporal. A glicemia também apresentou queda (~30% em comparação ao valor obtido no início do treino. Em contrapartida, foi observada elevação na concentração de cortisol (salivar 22% e plasmática 29% e de beta-hidroxibutirato (~340%. Não foi observada alteração significativa na concentração plasmática de CK e de LDH. O acompanhamento da FC demonstrou que dos 198 minutos que constituíram a sessão de treino, 36,5 ± 0,7 minutos foram realizados em intensidade leve; 103,5 ± 0,7 minutos em intensidade moderada, 54,0 ± 2,1 minutos em intensidade alta e 4,0 ± 0,0 minutos em intensidade muito alta. CONCLUSÕES: A perda de peso indica que a reposição hídrica não foi adequada. A redução na glicemia e o aumento na concentração de corpos cetônicos e de cortisol reforçam a importância da suplementação de carboidrato durante o treino de longa duração. O comportamento da FC demonstra que a sessão de treinamento foi realizada em uma intensidade moderada, porém com

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar os efeitos de diferentes padrões respiratórios no desempenho e na organização temporal das braçadas do nado "Crawl" de atletas de elite. Vinte e um jovens atletas do gênero masculino participaram de forma voluntária do estudo. Eles foram filmados nadando 25 m do nado "Crawl", em velocidade máxima, em quatro condições de respiração: inspiração para o lado preferido (LP; para o lado não preferido (LNP; bilateral (B; e, sem respiração (S. Duas filmadoras digitais (60 fps captaram as imagens que foram analisadas através do "software" Kinovea 0.8.7 nos 10 metros centrais do percurso. Para análise foram consideradas medidas de desempenho e de organização temporal das braçadas. Os resultados permitiram concluir que o padrão respiratório afeta o desempenho de atletas jovens de elite. Mostraram que, em termos de velocidade, tempo, frequência e comprimento de braçada, é mais vantajosa a condição de nadar "Crawl" em apneia (S que em qualquer das condições com inspiração (B, LP e LNP.

    Elaboration of the evaluation guidelines for activities implemented jointly (AIJ) was researched to prevent the earth from warming. AIJ is the means to globally promote countermeasures against global warming cost-effectively by optimally combining every country`s technology, know-how and fund. AIJ was established in the 1st Conference of the Parties (COPI) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in March, 1995. The pilot phase of AIJ is first carried out by voluntary workers jointly with developing countries under the agreement of the parties. The current situation of activities is reported in COPI as materials for evaluation of AIJ. To promote AIJ, elaboration of the evaluation guidelines for AIJ Japan program is also necessary for Japan. This research arranged the contents of the evaluation guidelines and the method of classifying projects for AIJ Japan program, and carried out some case studies of promising projects to reduce greenhouse gas emission for future proposal. 3 figs., 31 tabs.

    , and when we do so, we do not (at first) have to look at whether our discoveries are useful for society. It is important to stress that freedom in topics and approaches characterize researchers in the free world. At the same time academics are paid by society, and should pay interest to the larger problems......More than just repositories of knowledge, academics have an obligation to also forge new paths of discovery. As the boundary between what we know and what we still do not know expands, academics are not required to ask “what applied value does this discovery have.” Galileo’s curiosity in the time...... it took a chandelier to swing, measured only by his heartbeat, was not intended to help create modern timepieces, though it did through the discovery of the tautochrone nature of a pendulum. It was simple curiosity driven by unanswered questions and the human desire to know. We should pursue truth...

    For active environment technology export to OECD countries, needs for environmental measures in developing countries were surveyed. Both collection of environment technology needs in developing countries and preparation of technology seeds information of Japanese enterprises, and promotion of environmental projects by adding an information dispatch function are important. Active preparation and exchange of experiences and know-how of concerned enterprises, local governments and national organizations are also necessary. For development and possible export of small- and medium-sized ventures with excellent technologies and know-how, a suitable consulting system is essential for risks. For smooth promotion of warming prevention by international cooperation, active development of monitoring technology is also important. To support developing countries, OJT of persons in charge in technology transfer sites, and preparation of information infrastructure are necessary. Japan with much know-how on environmental preservation should positively participate in international standardization activities such as ISO. 10 refs., 14 figs., 56 tabs.

    This paper introduces meta-heuristic methods for system optimization for material flow scheduling as well as their applications. The systems are intended to optimize combinations which determine such variables as selection of transport routes in and out of a factory, ratio of transport vehicles, and ratio of product orders to facilities. The meta-heuristic methods include the simulated annealing (SA) algorithm and the genetic algorithm (GA). The SA method is a method to search an optimal solution by utilizing combination optimization and analogy in the statistical dynamics. Although the system has limitation in the scope of application, it is characterized in that the setting of vicinity structure utilizing experience is effective. The GA method is a collective search method which models after the evolution mechanism of living organisms, and is characterized by parallel search on a plurality of search points. The applications of the SA method include a system to optimize limits of receiving product orders (shipment plans) in an expanded copper plate manufacturing factory. The applications of the GA method include optimization of a problem to allot a plurality of orders to a plurality of slabs. A method that can be comparable to the GA and SA methods is the expert system. 11 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.

    The amount of energy in existence is theoretically the amount of energy that exists in a given region while the available amount is an amount of energy worked out with technological, economic, and social conditions taken into consideration. The total of the amount in existence and that of the available amount are mentioned in a table, and the available amount is further shown in terms of calorie. It totals 11,120Tcal per year, which is equivalent to approximately 55% of the whole amount of energy that Tokushima Prefecture demands. The availability of each type of new energy and the state of development of related technologies are studied to determine what priority is to be given to what energy. The group that is given the highest priority consists of photovoltaic power generation, passive solar systems, refuse fueled power generation, and heat from wastes (this group occupying more than 80% of the available amount in Tokushima Prefecture). The second group consists of wind power generation, clean energy vehicles, cogeneration, and small and medium scale hydroelectric power generation. The third group consists of fuel cells, ocean energy, biomass, and temperature difference energy. Natural conditions surrounding new energy in existence in Tokushima Prefecture are rather favorable, but social conditions are not. (NEDO)

    Research study was made on the current usage, technological development and future subjects of biomass energy. The current use of biomass energy over the world estimated to be nearly a billion t/y oil equivalent. This value is estimated to be only a part of a pure primary biomass yield of 73 billion t/y oil equivalent showing a large supply potential. The evaluation result of a biomass energy potential in the world by GLUE (Global Land Use and Energy Model) considering worldwide biomass flow and competition of land use showed that no change of land use form in advanced areas is predicted, and no production of new biomass energy from forests in advancing areas is also expected. Production of biomass energy from farm products is promising in advanced areas, while the potential of biomass residue is high in advancing areas showing the possibility of energy development. Development of new biotechnologies such as molecular control of bio-production functions is expected to increase biomass resources. 76 refs., 26 figs., 30 tabs.

    Full Text Available The relaxed posture of the eyelids keeps the eyes closed, the eyes open is part of the active behavior in living organisms, the activity gives rise to the blinking eye, that for the majority goes unnoticed. You can classify several types of eyeblink, blinking is a response that participates in the facial expression of the emotions. The muscle of the eyelid is essentially involved in emotional responses, as shown during the surprise, fear, or startle. We have studied the eyeblinking linked to aversive events of short duration. We need to know what is happening with the blinking eye to aversive stimuli with longer duration. The forced swimming test (PNF, stimulation provides a sharp, intense and prolonged by 15 minutes. Then we assess the response of eye blinking under the effect of the aversive stimulation provided by the PNF. We used 10 type Wistar male rats experimentally naive, with a weight next to the 300 g were housed with boxes-individual room and free access to food and water. The response of blinking eye was defined as: the behavior of closing and opening in a short period that the eyelids cover the eyes of the rat. We used a modified procedure of the PNF in establishing as a criterion of time 15 minutes for each of the two trials. The first assay began to put the rat in the cylinder with water. The second assay was performed 24 hours after the first assay. The sessions were videotaped, of which the recordings were obtained. The graph shows us a process of change in the blinkin eye, this suggests to us that this is a eyeblinking emotional, which passes through: the surprise; anxiety; and something like depression. It is a complex of processes in which they are involved a variety of mechanisms. We compare our results with other researches of blinking. The descriptors process involved in the anxiety-depression, are at different levels and can go from its link with physiological states until the mechanisms at the biochemical level responsible for that behavior.

OBJETIVO: Considerando que a magnitude da cinética deste parâmetro fisiológico depende da intensidade a que o esforço é realizado, pretendeu-se com este trabalho comparar a cinética do consumo de oxigênio em 200 m crowl nadados a duas intensidades distintas: moderada e extrema. MÉTODOS: Dez nadadores do sexo masculino, de nível internacional, realizaram dois testes separados: (i protocolo progressivo e intervalado de7 x200 m, com 30 segundos de intervalo e incrementos de 0,05 m.s-1 para determinação do patamar correspondente ao limiar anaeróbio; e (ii 200 m à máxima velocidade. Em ambos, realizou-se uma recolha contínua de gases expirados respiração-a-respiração. RESULTADOS: Diferenças significativas foram obtidas na amplitude e constante temporal determinadas nos 200 m nadados à intensidade extrema e moderada, respectivamente: 38,53 ± 5,30 versus 26,32 ± 9,73 ml. kg-1.min-1 e 13,21 ± 5,86 versus 18,89 ± 6,53 s (p ≤ 0,05. Não foram encontradas diferenças no atraso temporal (9,47 ± 6,42 versus 12,36 ± 6,62 s (p ≤ 0,05, à intensidade extrema e moderada, respectivamente. O atraso temporal correlacionou-se negativamente com a constante temporal à intensidade moderada (r = -0,74, p ≤ 0,05. CONCLUSÕES: Ambas as intensidades estudadas foram bem descritas por aproximações mono-exponenciais, tendo-se verificado diferenças significativas entre as mesmas no que concerne à amplitude e constante temporal.

    A survey was conducted on research results in industrial circles, universities, etc. in the U.S., Europe and Japan, especially the state of how intellectual ownership such as patent rights is handled and the present situation of the commercialization of intellectual ownership, proposing problems and measures to be taken for promotion of practical use of excellent research results in Japan. The most important thing obtained from the survey is that study jointly by industrial circles and universities in the U.S. and Europe is much more advancing than that in Japan and is firmly established not only in industrial circles, universities and national research institutes, but in the whole society, actually producing a lot of favorable results. For Japan to catch up with the U.S. and Europe, needed is not only accumulation of the ideas in the past, but drastic measures to be taken from a new point of view. Concretely, it was proposed that by belonging intellectual properties such as patent rights to universities/research institutes and transferring their disposal rights to them, royalties of licenses are given back to inventors as incentives, and that as a body promoting the transfer to the industrial circle, `management organization` to which private vitality is introduced is established in universities/research institutes in order to promote interconnection between the industrial circle and universities. 15 refs., 35 figs., 36 tabs.

    The 40 'Surveys for promotion of joint implementation, etc.' conducted by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) in fiscal 1998 aimed to pick out projects that would positively utilize the flexible measures (three Kyoto mechanisms) for the achievement of greenhouse gas reduction targets defined at COP3 (Third Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). In this paper, concerning these 40 surveys, studies are conducted for reaching conclusions about setting baselines for the future, execution of similar feasibility studies in the future, application of flexible measures, and opinions towards project implementation. The 40 surveys were, concretely speaking, conducted not to work out policies for actualization of given projects but to consider philosophies of project actualization and baseline formation for the future. In this paper, project outlines, environmental impact assessment, and economic assessment (investment assessment) are put in order for each of the surveys, and relations between amounts of global warming gas reduced and project costs, and project profitability, are analyzed for each of the surveys.

    For the purpose of reducing the risk of deep geothermal resource development, the paper investigated three factors for the formation of geothermal resource in the deep underground, that is, heat supply from heat source, supply of geothermal fluids, and the developmental status of fracture systems forming reservoir structures. The survey further clarified the status of existence of deep geothermal resource and the whole image of the geothermal system including shallow geothermal energy in order to research/study usability of deep geothermal resource. In the deep geothermal resource survey, drilling/examination were made of a deep geothermal exploration well (`WD-1,` target depth: approximately 3,000-4,000m) in the already developed area, with the aim of making rationalized promotion of the geothermal development. And the status of existence of deep geothermal resource and the whole image of the geothermal system were clarified to investigate/study usability of the geothermal system. In fiscal 1995, `WD-1` in the Kakkonda area reached a depth of 3,729m. By this, surveys were made to grasp the whole image of the shallow-deep geothermal system and to obtain basic data for researching usability of deep geothermal resource. 22 refs., 531 figs., 136 tabs.

    age of 22.9 ± 0.8 years, average weight of 74.5 ± 8.7 kg, and average height of 175.7 ± 6.8 cm. The subjects swam under two situations, both a distance of 50m, one free swimming and the other swimming while carrying a manikin. These situations were done under each of the following conditions: without fins, with soft fins, with short fins, with hard fins, and with fibre fins. The order of the trials was random and the subjects had at least 30 minutes of recovery between trials. Results show no significant differences between using swim fins or not in the 50m free swim, though there are significant differences in the manikin carry. It was also observed that the hard swim fins contributed to faster times in free swimming and manikin carry. In every case, fatigue had an effect on the second part of the trial, and it was significant in the 50m manikin carry.

    Research and development has been made on technologies to reduce sulfur content in light oil and on optimization of light oil quality. This paper summarizes the achievements in fiscal 2000. In the study of enhancing the desulfurization rate in gas oil deep hydrodesulfurization process, it was found that NiHY zeolite having Ni introduced by using the ion exchange method shows stable activity, whereas the target of sulfur content of 50 ppm or lower was achieved by adding the third constituent and by optimizing the impregnation solution to pH3. In the study of the Ni, Mo/alumina catalyst, the desulfurization activity was enhanced by optimization of carrier pore size to 120 to 140 angstroms and by addition of phosphorus and silica, having the target of sulfur content of 50 ppm or lower achieved. In the research of manufacturing low-sulfur light oil using heavy oil desulfurization and hydrocracking, optimization was performed on the catalyst used in the latter stage of heavy oil desulfurization, and evaluation was given on the performance in combination of commercially available hydrometallation catalyst/middle part HDS catalyst/bottom part HDS catalyst. As a result, achievement of the target of sulfur content in the desulfurized light oil of 300 ppm or lower was verified. Life evaluation test is in continuation on the heavy oil hydrocracking catalyst. (NEDO)

    Field survey was made on the current state of and issues on energy in Vietnam. In Vietnam, firewood is in wide use as non-commercial energy, and sums to a half of total energy consumption. Other energies such as hydroelectric power, petroleum, natural gas and coal are self-sustainable. Commercial energy consumption in 1995 is estimated at 10,070,000t in oil equivalent, which is broken down into 23% for coal, 42% in oil, 5% for natural gas and 30% for electricity. Abundant water resources will form the mainstay of future electric power supply. Commercial production of oil started in 1986 becoming an oil exporting country. Several promising natural gas fields were discovered as the result of the exploration by foreign capital. Coal deposits are estimated to be nearly 3.5 billion tons, and most of them are anthracite. Electric power demand is growing at a higher rate than the economic growth of Vietnam. The growth rate of electric power demand is set to be 1.3 times that of GDP. Since construction funds for new plants cannot be satisfied with the national budget and domestic investment alone, the country is expecting foreign capitals. 21 figs., 36 tabs.

    For planning the Pacific area energy policy of Japan, the field survey on energy situations was carried out in Laos and Myanmar. Since Laos is rich in hydraulic resources, the future electric power development is expected. Development of oil and coal resources is yet in a planning stage. Electricite du Laos (EdL) is in charge of electricity business, and its power generation capacity amounts to 220MW (including hydroelectric one of 93%), and a half of it is exported. Based on the predicted growth rate of 9%/y for domestic power demand, development of the capacity to 440MW by fiscal 2002 is scheduled. Myanmar has natural gas and various mineral resources, and is rich in hydroelectric resources. Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE) is in charge of electricity business. The power generation capacity amounts to 1.34GW (including private one of 26%). The power generation facility is composed of gas turbine one of 53% and hydroelectric one of 33%. Based on the predicted growth rate of 11.5%/y for domestic power demand, development of the capacity to 1.6GW by 2001 is scheduled. For the present, conversion of previous gas-firing power plants to efficient combined cycle ones is a main issue. 21 figs., 43 tabs.

    This paper reports the achievements in fiscal 2000 in development of a technology to evaluate reliability of petroleum refining facilities. The development efforts were made mainly on analyses by simulation and neural net (NN) that utilize computers. In the high-temperature system facilities, the creep damage generation is governed by different factors including impurities. The evaluation on joint life requires simultaneous use of low temperature zone long-time test. Verification was made on application of non-destructive inspection, such as use of ultrasonic waves in the accelerated creep zone. Defect detecting capability was identified when an ultrasonic wave flaw detection model is used for buried piping. In the pulse eddy current flaw detection, a coil most superb in totality was selected by means of simulation, by which corrosion and wall thickness of piping and devices were detected from outside the sheathing materials. Development was made on a technology to diagnose and evaluate corrosion of tank in operation by using the AE method. The remaining life of transformers is determined by how seriously the coil insulating paper has been deteriorated, and furfural in the oil was found effective for the parameters. Particularly, application of the NN was revealed to be effective in estimating electric motor deterioration. A high-temperature sulfide corrosion rate estimating model was developed from the operation and measurement data of the facilities by applying the NN and TCBM. (NEDO)

    The Kyoto Protocol allows some flexibility in the implementation of methods for achieving the goal, such as emission trading, activities implemented jointly (AIJ) among advanced countries, construction of clean development mechanisms (CDM) with developing countries, etc., and Japan intends to positively make use of them for the achievement of the goal. For China, who holds second place in the list of greenhouse gas emitting countries in the world, the promotion of CDM is quite important. With the situation taken into consideration, interaction was effected with Chinese officers and scientists of government agencies and academic institutes involved in environmental matters, and researches were conducted. Views and information were exchanged regarding environmental problems and, after on-site investigations, researches were conducted and suggestions were presented as to how AIJ and CDM should be. The suggestions covered Chinese policies toward AIJ and CDM, current state of AIJ projects in China and systems for their promotion, means for enhancing such projects, and discovery of candidates for AIJ and CDM project application.

    Rice being produced as food is taken up out of various types of biomass, and a feasibility study from the viewpoints of technology and economy is conducted as to its use in the energy industry. The production of ethanol from rice, though it has no past record worth discussion, is similar to the production of ethanol from other biomass resources in terms of technology and economy. The problem is that the production cost of rice is far higher than those of other materials. It is expected, however, that there will a large-scale production cost reduction and an increase in the yield when novel cultivation techniques are introduced in the future. It is also expected that alcohol from rice will be sufficiently competitive with alcohol from molasses or the like when the exploitation of cellulose-family by-products such as husks becomes feasible. The study on this occasion deals solely with the effective use of farmland and the surplus rice. A confrontation between rice as a biomass resource and rice as a food has to be avoided as much as possible in the long term because it may cause a price rise and compromise the security of food supply. That is, in discussing this matter, it is mandatory to draw a very definite line between rice as a food and rice as an alcohol production material. (NEDO)

    A simplified method is developed, which measures dioxins in flue gas without using GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry) of the double focusing type. The sampling device is built of two collecting bottles, containing water and diethylene glycol, and uses no XAD-2 (cross-linked amberlight divinyl benzene) resin. Such a design does not need time consuming Soxlet extraction in the sampling process and shortens the processing time. An HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) system replaces the convenient column chromatography system in the cleanup process, and this enables automation and rapid treatment. For the measurement of toxicity equivalent, GC/MS is used to separate and quantify 17 kinds of toxic isomers as in the conventional method. The GC/MS is of the quadruple focusing type, however, and this reduces the device cost at the initial stage and shortens the time for operators to acquire the skills of maintenance and operation. Though the quadruple focusing type is inferior to the double focusing type in sensitivity, the shortcoming is compensated for by massive specimen injection using a PTV (programmable temperature vaporizer). The result of a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) method and the result of this newly developed method are found to agree excellently with each other. This method is simple and efficient, suitable for use in the analysis of small incinerator flue gas. (NEDO)

    For the purpose of elucidating effects of output fluctuations at the time of quantity introduction of wind power generation, conducted were observation of wind characteristics in Hokkaido and analysis of the characteristics, estimation of fluctuations in wind power output, analysis of fluctuations in system frequency, etc. In the observation of wind characteristics, wind velocity/wind direction were measured at observation posts of 30 wind turbines installed at 16 sites in Hokkaido. Concerning the conversion into wind power output, 10 cases were selected such as the case of passage of low atmospheric pressure, etc., and the generator unit and wind firm were simulated in detail. In the estimation of wind power output, good agreement with the results estimated was confirmed at points very near to posts of observation of wind characteristics. As to the evaluation of effects of wind power generation to the system, power system frequencies were simulated using the models constructed and using capacity and kinds of frequency adjusted power source as parameter. As a result, it was indicated that there was a possibility of frequency's sharply fluctuating in case the surplus energy in frequency adjustment is reduced by fluctuations in demand and further in case wind power output is fluctuated.

    In view of the prospective demand for coal in China and of the current state of transportation, a development plan is formulated for Tangkou Mining Area (of model mines) for the purpose of realizing efficient exploitation of coal. The infrastructures for coal transportation are complete in this area, and delivery of coal is easy from this area to the coal demanding regions. Although coal seams are quite deep in the ground, the important ones contain rich reserves. Exploitation is carried out under a vertical shaft scheme, in which pits extend horizontally at the level of 950m below the sea surface. As for production, an annual yield of 3-million ton is predicted thanks to two compositely mechanized coal faces. Coal is won by the monolayer side hole method in the case of seams not thicker than 4.0m, and by the caved stope method in the case not thinner than 4.0m. Employed for the mines are 1077 people. Operation days are 300, efficiency 15t/man/shift. The annual sale in total is expected to be worth 759-million 534.6-thousand yuan. To be required for the construction will be 1.2-billion yuan for mines and 0.2-billion yuan for coal dressing facilities, or 1.4-billion yuan in all, and the figures indicate that the plan is economically promising. 43 figs., 119 tabs.

    An investigation was conducted into the systematical scheme for the introduction and promotion of environmentally friendly products mostly to the U.S., Europe and China. In the U.S., the introduction policy is given to one and all fields of the industry. The introduction policy of the U.S. has a characteristic that the introduction is left to the market principle by DSM or permit dealing, etc. except the preferential tax system and systematical finance in which the government is concerned. The policy of European countries is characterized by the idea preceding, standards or rules are first given, and the whole is pushed on to them. Accordingly, it seems that there is few atmosphere of expecting to receive the government side economic incentives from the corporate side. Legal regulations on the environment in China were prepared in a comparatively early time (1979), but the supervision of obeying the regulations and the appearance/spread of environmentally friendly product menus have just started. Accordingly, as the introduction policy on environmentally friendly products, there was found nothing valuable but the regulations. 12 refs., 3 figs., 15 tabs.

    Survey was made mainly on use of biotechnology as resource saving and energy saving processes. Biotechnology is in wide use in a pharmaceutical field, while its application is on the increase in agriculture, food, chemistry, energy and environment fields. The USA is ahead of Japan and Europe. In the USA, there are more than 1000 ventures, and R and D of biotechnology, in particular, gene analysis and manipulation techniques are in progress together with acquisition of patents. In biomass energy, production of ethanol from corn, and development of biodiesel are in progress in the USA and Europe, respectively. Use of biomass should be promoted because of its global environment compatibility and sustainable productivity. In the future bio-market, genome analysis and its application are most important, however, Japan is behind in such technology in the world. The Joint approach by industry, university and government is necessary from the viewpoint of a future marketability and international competitiveness. Promotion of a public acceptance and nurture of creative talents are also important. (NEDO)

    The technologies are developed for efficiently, economically improving quality of automobile fuels by, e.g., abatement of environmental pollutants present in the oil products. For improvement of hydrodesulfurization rate of gas oil deep hydrodesulfurization process, the catalyst components high in isomerization ability of the hard-to-desulfurize compounds are investigated, and effectiveness of zeolite is confirmed. For production of low-sulfur gas oil by hydrodesulfurization and hydrocracking of heavy oil, the catalyst with small pores is preferable for desulfurization of gas oil as the co-product of the treatment of heavy oil in the presence of catalyst for heavy oil desulfurization. For hydrocracking, the catalysts are prepared, on a trial basis, for achieving the target gas oil sulfur content of 10ppm or less by optimizing the zeolite and matrix properties. For suitability of gas oil qualities, it is found that the hydrogenation step is the rate-determining step among the reaction routes involved in the hydrogenation of difficult-to-desulfurize compounds. The data of low-sulfur gas oil qualities in Europe are collected. (NEDO)

    Research was made on electronic NEDO research reports corresponding to the recent extending trend of Internet. The logical structure and electronic format of NEDO research reports as document were first studied considering document disclosure and reuse of technical information. HTML as electronic format for Internet is unfortunately insufficient to describe the logical structure of NEDO research reports because of HTML's restricted description. Thus, XML which is being watched because of its possible definition of original tags was studied in place of HTML. As a result, because at present preparation of standards on XML and a compatibility for implementation of standards are insufficient, it was concluded that construction of the electronic document system for NEDO research reports is still too early. However, since adoption of XML as document format is important from the viewpoint of a property succession on Internet, preparation of the XML format file of NEDO research reports is essential.

    Japan-China joint coal survey was made through seismic prospecting by Japanese group and drilling prospecting by Chinese group. Mei-Xian mine property includes coal seams of the Jurassic period, and is covered with the quaternary period stratum without any coal seam. The base of the quaternary period stratum exists at depth of 50-400m, while the coal seams at depth of 300-700m. Among 11 existing seams, the 1st and 5th seams are main objects for prospecting. The 5th seam of 0.2-8.96m (2.95m in average) thick is the most expected important one, distributing all over the mine property. The 5th seam also has branch seams spreading over 2.5km from east to west and 1.2km from south to north in the center part of the mine property. The 1st seam of 0-8.62m (2.90m in average) thick is most thick in the south part of the mine property. The theoretical amount of coal deposits in the whole coal seam is estimated to be nearly 290,000,000t by Chinese group (nearly 50% of it in the 5th seam). That is also estimated to be nearly 346,000,000t by Japanese group (155,000,000t in the 5th seam). Both 1st and 5th seams are composed of sub-bituminous coal. (NEDO)

    For the purpose of reducing the risk to accompany the exploitation of deep-seated geothermal resources, investigations are conducted into the three factors that govern the formation of geothermal resources at deep levels, that is, the supply of heat from heat sources, the supply of geothermal fluids, and the development of fracture systems contributing to the constitution of reservoir structures. In fiscal 1996, the deep-seated exploration well WD-1a is sidetracked for penetration for a target newly assigned at the 3,000m-deep level. Carried out in a survey of well geology are the naked-eye and microscopic observation of core cuttings, X-ray powder method, examination of inclusions in fluids, chemical analysis of whole rocks, analysis of isotopes in minerals, analysis of core fracturing, etc. Also, data are collected from a survey of mud log, survey of water in the well before digging, and from well logging. Furthermore, pressure monitoring etc. are conducted in order to determine the interference in pressure between the deep-seated and shallow-seated wells that accompanies multiple outbursts from the Kakkonda No. 2 machine, to know the water permeability between the shallow-seated and deep-seated parts, and to grasp the anisotropy in permeability in shallow-seated reservoirs.

    At present, in oil refineries in Japan, the term of the continued operation in oil refining facilities is shorter than that in Europe and America because of the regulation on the open inspection period for boilers and hazardous material storage tanks. As a result, the refining cost is comparatively higher than in Europe and America due to the increase in inspection/repair cost and decrease in operational rate. Therefore, it is becoming important to effectively supply petroleum products by keeping stability in oil refining facilities of the whole Japan and prolonging the term of the continued operation of oil refining facilities, etc. In this R and D, the technical development is conducted which is needed for the long-term continued operation of oil refining facilities. The items for the R and D are as follows: assessment technology of reliability of oil refining high temperature system facilities, assessment technology of reliability of piping/storage facilities in oil refinery, assessment technology of reliability of oil refining power system facilities, technology of management support system in oil refining facilities. In this fiscal year, technical survey, data collection, and construction of the basic concept of developmental technology were mostly conducted. Also conducted were trial manufacture of various probes for non-fracture inspection use, oscillators, etc., and basic design of inspection equipment and trial manufacture of a part of them.

    To promote the development of deep-seated geothermal resources in a rationalized way, studies are conducted about deep-seated geothermal resource assessment techniques, development guidelines, and the like. Data were collected at the Sumikawa-Onuma district, Ogiri district, Mori district, Yanaizu-Nishiyama district, and the Onikobe district, and compiled into a database to be open to the public. Studies were made about methods for estimating parameters for deep-seated geothermal reservoirs. The resultant findings indicate that, in the Uenotai and Sumikawa-Onuma districts where geothermal reservoirs are governed mainly by a fracture network, the relaxation method and extrapolation will be effective for deep-seated reservoir temperature estimation, and the ascending current analysis method and extrapolation for permeability estimation. The findings also indicate that the expanse of deep-seated reservoirs will be suitably estimated using a method similar to that applied to shallow-seated reservoirs. In the study of the estimation of the amount of deep-seated geothermal resources, it is concluded that the simplified model A will be effective in dealing with a geothermal district where there is a well-developed fracture network and the simplified model B in dealing with a geothermal district where supply of deep-seated fluid governed by an extensive fault prevails.

    In order to promote technical cooperation of Japan with Asia in the energy aspect, site surveys were carried out on improvement in energy consumption efficiency. Electric power supply in Cambodia is made mostly from EDC, whose power generation amount in 1997 was 310 million kwh, while the power sold was 230 million kwh, with 26.1% of the total generation amount, or 80 million kwh being wasted as the loss. Existing power generation facilities are old and small in scale, made by the former Soviet Union making the repair difficult. The loss is enormous because of aging in power distribution facilities, overload operation, and power stealing. The efficiency is extremely poor, whereas improvement in efficiency of the existing facilities is indispensable to cope with the anticipated increase in the demand. In Bangladesh, 90% of the power is generated by using natural gas produced in the eastern part of the country. Many power plants are experiencing decreased efficiency due to the facility aging and insufficient and improper maintenance. The power transmission and distribution departments have had a large loss in power, which has become one of the most important issues. The loss exceeds 30%. The government is trying to achieve efficiency improvement in the electric power business through introducing the principle of competition by establishing new private companies. However, this approach is facing severe objection from the governmental and public labor unions, making the future development opaque. (NEDO)

    This paper describes the state of progress in the cooperation in solar energy technologies among Japan, Australia and other country, the memorandum concluded for the new project, and the activity report on the NEDO/MUERI project. The progress in the cooperation in solar energy technologies among Japan, Australia and other country is divided into that of the new project and that of the continued project. The former relates to the start of the long-term endurance test project for photovoltaic solar modules in Oman. The location of the endurance test is the Sultan Qaboos University in the suburb of Muscat. Modules subjected to the endurance test consist of ten modules of five types. The test will be performed on air temperature, humidity, wind directions, insolation on horizontal surface, insolation on slanted surface, ultraviolet ray intensity, module temperatures, and electric characteristics of the modules. The continued project is an outdoor endurance test for the photovoltaic solar modules begun in fiscal 1996, which is executed by the Murdock University Energy Research Institute (MUERI). The endurance test locations were selected at Darwin, Alice Springs and Perth. This paper reports the photovoltaic solar module endurance test and investigation, as well as the periodical consultations as the activity report of the NEDO/MUERI project. (NEDO)

    Investigations and discussions have been given on measures to improve energy conservation and efficiency at a power plant of Kish Water and Power Company (KWPC) in Iran. The site has high ambient temperature throughout a year, making the gas turbine power plant capable of generating power only at about 70% of the rated output, with the power generation efficiency decreasing. The project has analyzed the current situation at the plant, and evaluated different means that appear effective in improving the efficiency, including the gas turbine absorbed air cooling system, the steam injection system, and the combined cycle. As a result of the discussions, it was revealed that energy saving effect can be obtained at 145 TJ with the gas turbine absorbed air cooling system, 224 TJ with the steam injection system, and 1017 TJ with the combined cycle. The annual reduction of greenhouse gas emission due to the above energy conservation would be about 11 thousand tons, 16.5 thousand tons, and 75 thousand tons, respectively. However, the investment payback period would be about 2.45 years, 8.31 years, and 14.21 years, respectively. Therefore, the profitability does not appear very attractive because of low fuel unit cost. (NEDO)

    For the purpose of reducing the risk to accompany the exploitation of deep-seated geothermal resources, investigations are conducted into the three factors that govern the formation of geothermal resources at deep levels, that is, the supply of heat from heat sources, the supply of geothermal fluids, and the development of fracture systems contributing to the constitution of reservoir structures. In fiscal 1997, a fumarolic gas test is conducted at the deep-seated geothermal well WD-1b which was drilled in the preceding fiscal year. In the test, chemical and isotopic characteristics are compared between the fluids of the WD-1b and the other existing deep-seated wells, and it is found that the fluids from the WD1b originates in surface water just like the fluids from the others and that the constitution of its gas is not greatly affected by magmatic fluids. A PTS (Pressure, Temperature, Spinner flowmeter) logging is performed to observe conditions in the well with the fluids being discharged and to know the inflow point and rate the fumarolic fluids, and the result is utilized to presume the 3-dimensional stress in the vicinity of the WD-1. An isotopic measurement of water included in the fluids is conducted to examine the origin of the geothermal fluids, constant observation and analysis of micro-earthquakes are carried out, and the fluid flow and fluid hydraulic characteristics are also studied.

In the study of deep-seated geothermal models for the Kakkonda area, a reservoir structure model, a thermal structure model, and a geothermal fluid/hydraulic structure model are deliberated. Then, after studying the relations of the said three structure models to fracture systems, the boundary between the geothermal fluid convection region and the thermal conduction region near the 3,100m-deep level, the existence of high-salinity fluids and the depth of gas inflow, the ranges of shallow-seated reservoirs and deep-seated reservoirs, the trend of reduction in reservoir pressure and the anisotropy in water permeability in shallow-seated reservoirs, etc., a latest reservoir model is constructed into which all the findings obtained so far are incorporated. As for guidelines for deep-seated thermal resources survey and development, it is so decided that deep-seated geothermal survey guidelines, deep-seated fluid production guidelines, and deep-seated well drilling guidelines be prepared and that assessment be made of their economic effectiveness.

    With an objective of saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emission, a basic survey has been performed on the atmospheric crude oil distillation units and the high vacuum distillation units at Cilacap Refinery in Indonesia. The first site survey in September 2000 has carried out a survey on the situation of the facilities and operation upon obtaining the facility data and operation information from Pertamina. As a result, it was revealed that there is a room of improvement in the heat recovery, whereas a modification design was executed on the improvement proposals on the heat exchanger system. However, the second site survey in November 2000 has revealed that Pertamina had executed in 1998 through 1999 the de-bottlenecking project on the crude oil atmospheric distillation units (two units) and the high vacuum distillation units (two units), by which the capability has been expanded, and the heat recovery rate has been increased. It is not possible to look for extremely large enhancement of the heat recovery rate beyond that point, and the reduction of CO2 emission would also be small. As a result of discussions, the present project was found capable of reducing annually the CO2 emission by 36,500 tons. (NEDO)

    The survey was conducted based on 'Scope of work for detailed coal exploration in the Tebulan East block of the Merit Pila coal field, Sarawak, Malaysia' concluded on June 19, 1993 between NEDO and Global Mineral which owns the mining right. The field survey was for the geological survey, survey of conditions of open pit mining, and infrastructure survey. The confirmed/estimated coal amount totaled 22,65 million tons in 4 coal seams. The all sulfur content is low, approximately 0.12%. The heating value is 5,820 kcal/kg. As to the infrastructure, various conditions are good for transportation, shipping facilities, etc. from mine site to truck transport/barge transport/external route shipping. The drilling was planned to be made by open pit mining by the truck and shovel system, and the scale of the planned production was 0.3 million tons. The ash is low in amount, and there was no coal preparation. Clean coal is produced by crushing, sieving and washing. Attached were the borehole log (JN9940782), route map, and trench sketch (JN9940783). (NEDO)

    Study was made on popularization of the proper treatment technology of industrial wastes in Asian regions. In principle, industrial wastes should be recycled in a country concerned, however, because of a difference in technology and industrial location, treatment of all industrial wastes in a country concerned is impossible. International cooperation is thus indispensable to promote proper efficient practical measures for environment. For studying the possibility of the international cooperation between Japan and Asian countries concerned for further recognition and solution of industrial waste problems, 'International Symposium on the Asian Industrial Waste Issue' have been held in Tokyo since 1997 for governmental staffs. In fiscal 1998, Malaysia was invited in addition to China, Philippines and Thailand for popularization of the proper treatment and recycling of industrial wastes in Asian regions. In every Asian countries, poor collection of discharge, treatment and disposal data is an obstacle to effective treatment. Technical cooperation and financial support by developed countries are demanded. (NEDO)

    For the purpose of reducing the risk to accompany the exploitation of deep-seated geothermal resources, investigations are conducted into the three factors that govern the formation of geothermal resources at deep levels, that is, the supply of heat from heat sources, the supply of geothermal fluids, and the development of fracture systems contributing to the constitution of reservoir structures. In the evaluation and study of reservoirs and the amount of resources, a reservoir simulation is conducted to grasp the characteristics of reservoirs and the amount of resources. For this purpose, the origin and history of the Kakkonda geothermal field are studied, with special attention paid to the origin of the difference in temperature between the shallow-seated and deep-seated reservoirs, the geometry of granite at Kakkonda, the region of recharge of meteoric water, the distribution of saline concentration in the natural state and the cause of the occurrence, the amount of supply of fluids and heat from the depth to the reservoirs, etc. In the evaluation and study of the economic effectiveness of the exploitation of deep-seated geothermal resources, it is learned that, if a 50MW geothermal power station is to be built at a deep level (drilled depth of 3000m on the average) with a rate of 50% attained in drilling, the steam amount required at such a deep level (presumed to be 75t/h) will be more than twice that required at a shallow level (presumed to be 35/h).

    By the use of superconductive technology, the following are aimed at: marked reduction in power loss of electrical equipment and power transmission path, and size/weight reduction in electrical devices by high current/magnetic flux density. The superconductive technology has advantages such as great energy saving effect, CO2 reduction and global environmental preservation. As an example, concerning the superconductive generator now being developed under the New Sunshine Project, power loss can be reduced by half, and by the use of high magnetic field, size/weight can be reduced such as reduction in rotor diameter and reduction in weight by half. Further, as an innovative system, cited are the superconducting magnetic energy storage system (SMES) and flywheel energy storage system. The superconducting magnetic levitation railway, medical use MRI, etc. have also innovativity which is difficult to get in the conventional technology. Effects are also expected of introducing the process development using superconducting magnet such as magnetic separation, electromagnetic metallurgy, electromagnetic agitation and monocrytal growth convection control. Also cited is Josephson electronic device. High performance SQUID in bio-magnetic/non-destructive inspection is also expected to be developed. (NEDO)

  9. Swimming economy: determinant factors and assessment issues

    Full Text Available Swimming economy is an important parameter in the control of the training process, since it has been demonstrated that this concept is related to the swimming performance. Swimming economy is affected by physiological and biomechanical constraints, therefore being a concept that reflects the swimmers´ adaptation to the liquid environment in those two domains. A review of the literature about swimming economy is presented, focusing some of the most relevant studies that have been conducted on this issue. Other than the biomechanical and physiological constraints, the swimming economy is influenced by other factors such as: swimming velocity, technical ability, training status, gender, age and anthropometric characteristics. Therefore a multitude of aspects are pertinent in the assessment of swimming economy and in the application of this concept in the control of the swimmers’ training process. A proper assessment of the swimming economy requires the direct measurement of the oxygen uptake. The choice of the protocol to assess the swimming economy must be carefully done. Particular attention must be paid to the oxygen uptake kinetics across the different levels of exercise intensity. Therefore, both exercise intensity and duration are to be considered. The attainment of swimming velocities as close as possible to the competition velocity is also an important issue. Although few studies have measured directly the oxygen uptake of top-level performers during swimming, the literature shows that a discontinuous protocol, with increasing exercise bouts of duration between three and six minutes seem appropriate to assess the swimming economy. RESUMO Economia de nado é um parâmetro importante no controle do processo de treinamento, desde que foi demonstrado que este conceito é relacionado ao desempenho de nado.

As diferenças no custo de nado entre os indivíduos parecem ser influenciadas por dois principais fatores, a resistência hidrodinâmica e habilidade técnica do nadador. O menor custo de nado apresentado pelas mulheres tem sido atribuído a menor resistência hidrodinâmica decorrente de menor tamanho corporal, maior percentagem de gordura e melhor posicionamento horizontal. Porém, essas diferenças no custo de nado entre homens e mulheres desaparecem quando corrigidos para o tamanho corporal. Em relação às crianças, o maior custo de nado comparado com o dos adultos quando corrigidos para o tamanho corporal pode ser explicado principalmente por menor habilidade técnica apresentada por elas. Para indivíduos com as mesmas características antropométricas, melhor habilidade técnica e maior tamanho da superfície de propulsão, associados a aumento na eficiência propulsiva, podem reduzir o custo de nado. Quando se comparam os diferentes estilos, o mais econômico é o crawl seguido pelo de costas em qualquer velocidade de nado.

    To evaluate geothermal reservoirs in the initial stage of development and keep stable output in service operation, the application of MEMS is under development. This paper describes the result in fiscal 1997. Installation of 3-component velocity type seismometers in bore holes is desirable for permanent monitoring sites. Their arrangement should be determined by detection ability simulation. Their locations at various elevations are effective to improve the accuracy of hypocenter determination. Digital seismic data at the permanent sites are transmitted to a center through cables, while temporary data are recorded on site. For poor MEPAS, a Windows program of basic functions was developed. 3-D seismic velocity analysis and array monitoring system were also studied. A P-wave velocity of rocks decreased by 25% by formed two-phase region, and increased by 10% by decrease in reservoir temperature from 200 to 100degC. The velocity can be detected by change in travel time of direct waves due to considerable variation in reservoir environment. VSP technique using a vibrator or air gun as artificial hypocenter is effective for MEMS. 67 refs., 64 figs., 19 tabs.

    In order to promote the joint implementation based on COP3, a survey and a discussion were given on improvement in wastes treatment systems and reduction of greenhouse effect gas emission in Tapioka starch manufacturing plants scattered in Indonesia. Currently, the wastes are disposed untreated, discharging methane gas into atmosphere as a result of putrefaction and contamination. Ten factories were picked up as the object of the survey. The following processes are to be adopted as the most suitable method for treating waste water and waste substances: solids (peels and fibers) are composted, and rinsing waste water is subjected to simple aerobic treatment; purified waste water is recovered of methane gas by means of anaerobic treatment; and the reduction amount of greenhouse effect gas converted to CO2 is estimated to reach 314,824 tons per year in total of the ten factories. If the carbon dioxide discharge right can be transacted at a sales price of a dollar per ton, assuming the compost sales price at 200 Rp./kg, the IRR will be 10% or higher, making the project very highly profitable. An IRR of 8% may not be assured unless the discharge right can be sold at 5 dollars per ton if the compost sales price is 150 Rp./kg. The Indonesian Government expects financial assistance from Japan for the pilot plant demonstration. (NEDO)

    To evaluate geothermal reservoirs in the initial stage of development, to keep stable output in service operation, and to develop a technology effective for extraction from peripheral reservoirs, study was made on a reservoir variation prediction technique, in particular, a modeling support technique. This paper describes the result in fiscal 1997. Underground temperature estimation technique using homogenization temperatures of fluid inclusions among core fault system measurement systems was applied to Wasabizawa field. The effect of stretching is important to estimate reservoir temperatures, and use of a minimum homogenization temperature of fluid inclusions in quartz was suitable. Even in the case of no quartz in hydrothermal veins, measured data of quartz (secondary fluid inclusion) in parent rocks adjacent to hydrothermal veins well agreed with measured temperature data. The developmental possibility of a new modeling support technique was confirmed enough through collection of documents and information. Based on the result, measurement equipment suitable for R and D was selected, and a measurement system was established through preliminary experiments. 39 refs., 35 figs., 6 tabs.

    NEDO is positively implementing the training programs, in view of importance of training experts on (energy-saving and environmental conservation technologies), by inviting administrators and engineers from developing countries to educate them with Japan's pollution preventive techniques, administration procedures, energy-saving measures, and so on. In FY 1998, NEDO commissioned the International Center for Environment Technology Transfer to train administrators and engineers from Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Myanmar. This paper describes the proposals, based on the collected answers of the trainees to the questionnaires. The trainees were interested in all themes. About 40% of the trainees considered that the training period was short. Some trainees hoped the training course was held in summer. Difference in industrialization is reflected in difference in recognition and urgency of the environmental problems. Training was conducted by English and Vietnamese, but could be done without translators of Vietnamese. Preparation for the invitation needs a lot of works, and the course should be explained more thoroughly beforehand. It is regrettable that one trainee from Indonesia was late for the course. (NEDO)

    In the Asian region, for the purpose of grasping effects of both economic growth and effective energy consumption, an analytical tool added with a computational function was developed with the interindustrial relations table as database for the analysis of the present situation and the simulational analysis. In the analysis of the present situation, changes between the two time-points, 1985 and 1990, were analyzed using the developed energy consumption table and the CO2 emission table. The energy consumption amount is increasing with the growing economy. However, the energy unit consumption is decreasing in countries except Korea, the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia. The trend is that the energy consumption is becoming effective and the CO2 emission amount is decreasing. As an example of simulating the introduction effect of energy saving technology, the simulation was conducted on the three: iron steel, paper/pulp, and cement in Indonesia. As a result, the decrease in energy consumption was shown in paper/pulp by 48%, in cement by 16%, and in iron/steel by 16%. The same was also indicated in CO2 emission. (NEDO)

    This paper describes investigation and discussion on effects of introducing a superconductor power application technology. The generator sub-committee has compared features, technical problems and development expenses in the first and second proposals, but has not reached the final conclusion. The first proposal is targeted for early realization of 200-300 MW class generators with development cost of six to seven billion yen and a development term of seven years. These developments raise largely towards practical application the levels of material technologies, fabrication and processing technologies, and analysis and design technologies. The second proposal is intended of developing 200-300 MW class generators targeted for increased diameter, as a reduced size machine of a 600-MW generator being a future generator. It will take development cost of eight to nine billion yen with the period of nine years for the development. Majority of the technologies required for developing the future 600-MW class generator can be demonstrated. The AC superconductor device sub-committee has investigated design examples, clarified the specification requirements, and investigated and studied the development measures. The oxide superconductor sub-committee has investigated and studied making wires and conductors, and device application feasibility, but has not reached the stage of presenting specific research and development methods. The practical application strategy sub-committee has also not been able to present a collective measure because of difficulty of making future prospect on the electric power business. (NEDO)

    With an objective of reactivating and reduction of emission of greenhouse effect gases, investigations and discussions were given on repowering three thermal power plants in the Federal Republic of Russia. The project on Kirishi Power Station calls for withdrawal of 1800-MW capacity out of the existing generation capacity of 2100 MW, and installation of a combined cycle power plant having an output capacity of 1950 MW. The existing 300-MW capacity will be used mainly for heat supply. At Puskovskaya Power Plant, a combined cycle power plant with a capacity of 1170 MW will be built newly. Iriklinskaya Power Station will have the existing plant removed, where a new combined cycle power plant with a capacity of 2340 MW will be constructed. As a result of the discussions, the cumulative reduction amount of CO2 emission will reach 44.67 million tons, 10.53 million tons, and 89.94 million tons respectively, and the investment return rate before tax will be 11.35%, 11.85% and 11.18% respectively. This project is expected to contribute largely to reduction of CO2 emission, and at the same time strengthen the foundation of the power plant management. (NEDO)

    Investigations and discussions have been given on energy saving possibilities at two medium-sized heat and power supplying plants in the city of Dailian in China. The project will improve the operation methods of the heat and power plants so that the energy cost can be minimized, and attempt to improve the boiler heat efficiency and save the energy by means of heat recovery and utilization. The draft modification plan for energy conservation has planned operation optimization for energy conservation, control of boiler operation under variable pressure, modification of the external boiler heat converter, use of inverters for the large capacity motors for boilers, and recovery of heat from the boiler blow-down water. In the analysis, models were structured from the operation data, and the effects of applying the energy saving measures were derived from simulation. As a result, the energy saving effect was found to be about 13,000 tons at the Chunhai plant and about 7,000 tons at the Pulandian plant annually (converted to oil). The reduction in greenhouse gas emission was found to be about 40,000 tons at the Chunhai plant and about 20,000 tons at the Pulandian plant annually. The number of years for investment payback is about 4.1 years at the Chunhai plant, and about 4.9 years at the Pulandian plant, wherein good profitability can be estimated. (NEDO)

    Feasibility research was made on distributed power sources using photovoltaic and wind power generation in Tonga and Samoa. For the best mix of environment-friendly power sources, hearing from government leaders and power business persons, and field inspection were carried out. Foreign currency earnings of Tonga are dependent on remittance from nations working overseas, while since diesel fuel for power generation is expensive because of import through Fiji and tariffs, multi-power sources for power cost reduction and low-cost new power systems are in expectation. Underground transmission and distribution lines are under consideration to prevent typhoon damages. Both countries are probably rich in wind power potential, however, wind condition data are poor requiring further researches. Tonga government is in charge of power business except that in Tongatapu island. In Samoa, EPC (Electric Power Corp.) is in charge of power business. Hydroelectric power generation is possible because of rivers formed by abundant tropical rains. Feasibility research was made on coal-firing, fuel cell combined, wind power, photovoltaic and waste power generation. 7 figs.

    The trend of the technology development in the Japanese iron/steel industry was compared with those in foreign countries and surveyed to increase the international competitive strength. From the viewpoints of technology, industry and goods, the iron/steel field was characterized based on the statistic data, and especially automobile use steel materials were selected such as cold rolling high tension steel sheet, surface treated steel sheet, and bearing sheet. The analysis of factors of competitive superiority was conducted, and the following were presented: measures for process continuation, and measures taken from the age of equipment and cost indexes. The paper also surveyed the trend of pig iron making/steel making technology in Asia. The present international technical competitiveness in the iron/steel industry in Japan, especially of automobile use steel sheet, is very high. This is because of the well-functioned demand-oriented development, and also as a result of the mutually influentially conducted equipment development such as process continuation and development of new goods, supposing the iron/steel continuous process and reduction in impurities. However, fears are the stagnation in the recent technical development strength and the saturation of new equipment. Moreover, the further heightening is needed of the international cost competitive strength of general-purpose products. (NEDO)

    Described herein are the FY 1998 results of the activities for development of extraction and production technologies for the deep-seated geothermal resources, which are expected to contribute to increased geothermal power generation capacity. The program for the PTSD logging technology connects the S probe to PT probe, to simultaneously measure temperature, pressure and volumetric flow, producing the data of good quality even in a high temperature environment over 327 degrees C. Thus, possibility of the commercial system is confirmed. The D probe also produces a density calibration curve showing very good linearity, and operates normally in a high temperature environment of 406 degrees C. The program for the PTC monitoring technology conducts the field tests at Larderello, Italy, to confirm the sampler functions in a high temperature environment. The program for the tracer monitoring technology extracts promising tracers stable at high temperature from those for the liquid, vapor and liquid/vapor mixed phases. Silica is observed to be massively dissolved at 400 to 1,000mg/kg in the fluid under deep geothermal conditions. Scale precipitation rate is minimal for the first 21 days, but increases linearly with time thereafter. The experiments are also conducted for formation and prevention of the Fe-Si-based scales during the flushing period. (NEDO)

    With an objective to develop geothermal resources, research and development has been performed on the production technologies for the deep-seated geothermal resources, such as pressure, temperature, flow speed and density (PTSD) logging technologies. This paper summarizes the achievements in fiscal 1999. In the actual well test on the developed D-probe, it was verified that the probe operates normally under high temperature environment (342 degrees C) which exceeds the measurement limit of conductive cables (315 degrees C). In developing the PTC monitoring technology, the downhole sampler was improved, and a test was performed in the actual hole in the Hijiori area in Yamagata Prefecture. As a result, collection of hot water of about 900 mL has become possible. In developing the high-temperature tracer monitoring technology, simulation was performed keeping in mind charging the tracer into the Hijiori geothermal area, whereas specifications for charging and collecting the tracer were determined. In developing the scale monitoring technology, experiments were carried out on the fluid systems under deep geothermal conditions by using scale forming devices, by which it was indicated that silica is the important scale constituent.

    Discussions were given on the modification plan for Atyrau Refinery in Kazakhstan as a basic survey on promotion of joint implementation based on the COP3. The plan is intended mainly on modernization of overaged refineries, energy conservation, and prevention of pollution. The gists of the plan consist of improvement of quality of diesel oil and gasoline, reduction of production ratio of fuel heavy oil, plant efficiency enhancement, and environmental improvement. The crude oil selected in consideration of the demand in market was the light-gravity Tengiz crude oil whose production increase was attempted. For product quality, a plan was established to modify the facilities to realize improvement in content of light oil, sulfur and aroma, production of non-leaded gasoline, and octane value improvement in consideration of exporting the product into European markets. Since this project is applied to a private corporation, it is necessary that the project is commercially viable. However, the commercially low profitability makes the implementation of the project difficult unless such conditions as crude oil price and product sales price would be improved largely. Effect of the carbon dioxide gas reduction as a result of the implementation would be 180,000 tons annually, but in terms of cost effect, the implementation requires an investment of 500 Dollars per ton of carbon dioxide, thus the effect is low. Reduction in other greenhouse effect gas is not large quantitatively. (NEDO)

    Field research was made for oil saving in Thailand. To promote energy saving in a textile industry as main export industry, its motivation for production stuff is essential in business improvement. Proposal for work improvement, supply system of bonuses, and small-group activity are effective. Management of an energy consumption rate is essential in business management. Use of efficient waste water treatment equipment is also one of the issues. In food factories, various scopes for improvement are still found by mass/heat balance analysis in production process. As an example, a large amount of water is consumed in vain for washing raw rice in a rice powder factory, and separation of SS precipitate from waste water should be improved. Because of lagoon treatment, an effluent standard is not achieved in spite of consumption of wasteful aeration power. This treatment is reasonable because of its scale and site, although the standard can be achieved by activated sludge method. Reconsideration of the standard is also necessary based on a local total BOD load capacity. The profitability of a methane fermentation method should be examined. 72 figs., 95 tabs.

    The purpose of the survey is to promote the international research cooperation projects from the survey stage, via demonstration research stage to the diffusion stage. Field surveys have been conducted to find out the needs of energy saving and environmental technology for the efficient consumption of petroleum in the developing countries with mass-consumption of petroleum in the future. The survey was conducted in the Philippines in the FY 1996. Next developing themes were proposed. The first theme was developing method of sugar plant. The magnesia method has been developed as a basic technology for cleaning sugar solution process instead of using lime. By the recycling method, the waste cake amount can be remarkably reduced. The second theme was electron beam exhaust gas treatment by a dry method of simultaneous desulfurization and denitrification of high concentration SOx and NOx in the fertilizer production plants. The third theme was the energy saving technology for SOx reduction of heating furnace for iron-steel by using an ultra energy saving-type regenerative burner. The last theme was chlorine bypass technology in cement industry, which would become an advanced technology development for the use of chlorine containing fuels in the near future. 40 refs., 36 figs., 79 tabs.

    For the purpose of conserving energy and reducing greenhouse effect gas emission, feasibility study was conducted for improvement of efficiency of power generation/desalination facilities at MAEK Energy Center, Aktau City, Manghistau, Kazakhstan. Presently, the main facilities are the conventional natural gas fired power plant, evaporation type seawater desalination facility, hot water production facility, etc. In the project, introduction of the following was planned to be made: cogeneration facility composed of two units of 1,100-degree C class gas turbine and reverse osmosis (RO) type desalination facility for drinking water production with a capacity of 50,000 t/d. As a result of the study, the energy conservation amount in this project was 151,900-165,400 toe/y in power generation facility, and the greenhouse effect gas reduction amount was 355,000-387,000 t-CO2/y in power generation facility and 268,000 t-CO2/y in desalination facility. The construction cost and operational cost of the plant were 45.7 billion yen and 2.8 billion yen/y. In the economical estimation, ROI and ROE before tax were 7.4 and 34.8, respectively, which were considered to be appropriate values as social infrastructure related conditions. (NEDO)

    For the state-run plant of Pakistan Steel in Pakistan, an investigational study was conducted on energy conservation and reduction in greenhouse effect gas emission. In the project, energy conservation technology on the following was tried to be introduced: coke oven coal moisture control (CMC) equipment, sintering cooler waste heat recovery equipment, blast furnace hot stove waste heat recovery equipment, blast furnace pulverized coal injection (PCI) equipment, blast furnace top pressure recovery turbine (TRT) equipment, and hot strip mill heating furnace regenerative type burner equipment. Further, in the project on environmental improvement, studies were made on coke oven environmental improvement and blast furnace cast house dust collection. The results of the study indicated that economical effects of the energy conservation project were considered as low because the unit price of energy of Pakistan Steel is low. However, substitution of the low-priced domestic coal for the imported coal has a good effect, and energy conservation in the TRT power generation and by the regenerative type burner produces a highly economical effect. Therefore, Pakistan Steel also agrees to positively promote the project. Moreover, concerning the environmental improvement project, it was considered that the necessity of the project is high in the relation of the coke oven aimed at reducing emissions of toxic substances.

    Discussions have been given on the improvement and modification project intended of saving energies and reducing greenhouse gas emission in the Potoshani district heating and heat supplying facilities in Romania. Thirty years have elapsed since the building of the Potoshani district heating and heat supplying facilities, whereas noticeable energy loss has occurred due to aged deterioration, such as thermal efficiency decrease, performance decrease, and hot water leakage due to piping corrosion. The present project is intended to improve the heat production and power generation facility efficiencies, and reduce the heat loss in heat transportation and distribution to less than 5%. The improvements will be implemented by replacing and rehabilitating the existing boilers, replacing the turbine generators, and replacing the transportation and distribution pipelines and heat exchangers. As a result of the discussions, the present project is estimated to result in annual fuel conservation of 35,820 tons of crude oil equivalent, and annual reduction of the greenhouse gas emission of 110,835 t-CO2. The total amount of the initial investment for the project would be 11.369 billion yen, and the payback period would be 12 years. The project will produce profit of 31.358 billion yen in 20 years, thus the project is financially feasible. (NEDO)

    An investigational study was conducted on the project for energy conservation and reduction in greenhouse effect gas emission at the existing district heating plant in Tbilisi City, Georgia. In the project, the following are conducted for the district heating plants in the Didi-Digomi section and Saburtalo section: renewal/higher efficiency of boiler equipment, adoption of cogeneration using gas turbine, improvement of hot water pipeline and improvement of equipment at heat users. As a result of the study, one plan for cogeneration of 2 units x 6MW class in each section was good in terms of economical efficiency and expenses vs. effects, and the other plan for cogeneration of 17 units (8 units and 9 units) x 6MW class was good in terms of the generated output and regional needs. The amount of energy conservation to be made by the former plan totaled 22,678 toe/y in both sections. The amount of greenhouse effect gas reduction is 70,170 t-CO2/y. The internal earning rate is 1.707% in the Didi-Digomi section and 2.249% in the Saburtalo section. The project profit is lower than the initial investment cost, and therefore, it is necessary to consider the profit from the CO2 emission right. (NEDO)

Analyses were given on 75 sites which have been operated up to fiscal 1996. Analyses of the operation characteristics were performed by using performance parameters derived by developing the basic expressions into each configuration element. For the insolation on slanted surface, the range from 3.0 to 4.5 kWh/m{sup 2}/D accounts for 65% of the total insolation. For the equivalent array operation time, the range from 2.5 to 4.0 h/D accounted for 81%. For the equivalent system operation time, the range from 9.0 to 12.0 h/D accounted for 85%. The range for inverter active efficiency from 0.84 to 0.96 accounted for 79%. The inverter load rate was accounted for 88% by 0.20 to 0.35. The output coefficient was accounted for 82% by 0.7 to 1.0 in the array, and 87% by 0.6 to 0.9 in the system. The power generation cost has decreased to 200 yen per kwh in fiscal 1995 from 340 yen per kwh in fiscal 1992, largely contributed by reduced installation cost. (NEDO)

    The solar energy utilizing technologies having been developed under the Sunshine Project were used to have executed the international joint technology development on the 'solar heat utilizing drying system' in the Republic of Indonesia. This paper summarizes the achievements in fiscal 1998. In operating the pilot plant, three operational experiments out of seven experiments were carried out only by Indonesian engineers. As a result of the drying experiments, the heat collecting characteristics of the collector were as about half at 19 to 30% as the efficiency assumed in the design of 50%. The reason for this can be attributed to the fact that the cover glass used in the demonstration test in Japan had light permeability of about 87%, but the cover glass used in the test plant was made of frosted glass whose light permeability was about 37%. This glass is the only glass available for a heat collector in the solar heat hot water device in Indonesia, but is unsuitable for the heat collector. Another cause was that the insolation at the site was lower by about 30% than the one used at the design stage. (NEDO)

    Since radiation of a laser diode (LD) is quite different from that of a light emitting diode (LED), evaluating their safety under one and the same standard (criterion) is questionable. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), however, treats them in the same way. For the remedy of such contradiction and for the clarification of difference between the two devices in terms of radiation characteristics, they were quantitatively measured for spatial coherence and further measured for coherence dependency of their beam diameters. Well-supported threshold levels were prepared and biological tests were conducted for proposing a revision of the LED safety standard (IEC). As for the safety of equipment with built-in infrared devices, a measurement method was prepared as IEC61913 and devices are already at the CVD (chemical vapor deposition) stage. The result will be placed before the IEC/TC76 committee for deliberation of IEC60825-1 revision. Furthermore, to establish alignment between IEC and ISO (International Standardization Organization) in terms of laser-aided measurement which is the foundation for such committee deliberation, an ISO/IEC international joint group was created, and a technical recommendation was compiled and presented to the two standardizing organizations.

    The goal is to develop basic technologies to build an SiC device capable of service amid high-temperature surroundings for the advancement and optimization of combustion control systems. In an SiC semiconductor, the Si-C bond is broken when irradiated with ions, and this makes the occurrence of thermal oxidation easy to occur. In the study to form SiC into single-crystal substrates, a substrate with warpage of 10 micrometers or less and surface coarseness of 10 nanometers or less is realized. In the development of sensor technologies, the high-speed CVD (chemical vapor deposition) method is applied for the growth of crystals further on a 3C-SiC layer epitaxially grown by MBE (molecular beam epitaxy) surface control, which improves on layer characteristics. Element technologies are developed for the construction of a 3-terminal element (FET: field effect transistor), which is for the construction of a high-temperature, high-speed SiC device. An effort is made at achieving 3C-SiC hetero-epitaxial growth, etc., on a 3-inch Si substrate using an SiC crystal film formation experimenting apparatus, which aims at constructing a control device. Concerning the combustion control system, the relations between the air/fuel ratio and the emission spectra of radicals OH, CH, and C2 in a flame are made clear. Also referred to are the basic studies being conducted at research institutes such as universities and a survey of technological trends abroad.

MÉTODOS: Ratos Wistar foram divididos em grupos: controle, controle+nado, ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado. Os ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado receberam suplementação; os demais receberam água por gavagem. Os controle+nado e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado foram submetidos ao exercício. Foram avaliadas as concentrações plasmáticas de colesterol total, triglicérides e lipoproteína de alta densidade, antes e após os procedimentos experimentais. RESULTADOS: No protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia, em relação às concentrações de colesterol total, foi observada redução significativa proporcionalmente maior no grupo ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado, apesar de o grupo controle+nado e o ácidos graxos ômega-3 também terem apresentado diminuição. No ensaio de 1,0g/kg/dia todos os grupos apresentaram uma diminuição que foi maior, respectivamente, no ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado e, a seguir, no ácidos graxos ômega-3. Quanto aos triglicérides, foram encontradas reduções em todos os grupos experimentais, que foi maior no grupo ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado, do protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia, enquanto que no de 1,0g/kg/dia a diminuição foi significativa apenas nos grupos ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado. Quanto ao HDL, no protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia foi encontrado aumento nos animais que não foram suplementados, enquanto que em todos os grupos de 1,0g/kg/dia houve uma diminuição do HDL. CONCLUSÃO: A suplementação com ácidos graxos ômega-3 nas doses 0,5 ou 1,0g/kg/dia, associada ao nado, reduzem as concentrações plasmáticas de colesterol total e triglcérides, mas estudos adicionais, também com outras doses, são necessários para a compreensão da relação entre a ingestão de óleo de peixe e

    Described herein are the results of the FY1994 research program for analysis and evaluation for thin film solar cells. The study on quantitative analysis of hydrogen atoms in a plasma determines quantity of hydrogen atoms in the plasma of monosilane diluted with hydrogen. It is found, contrary to expectation, that quantity of hydrogen atoms in the plasma decreases as it is more diluted with hydrogen. The study on light-induced degradation of the thin chlorine-base amorphous silicon films confirms that the plasma CVD method with 20% of dichlorosilane gas added to monosilane gas produces the thin amorphous silicon film 3 times faster than the conventional method. The thin film has essentially the same defect density as the one prepared by the conventional method, showing good photoelectric characteristics. The thin film of chlorinated amorphous silicon has a 1 digit lower defect density than the conventional one of amorphous silicon, as revealed by the accelerated degradation test with irradiated laser light and the constant current method to determine saturated defect density. 3 figs.

MÉTODOS: Foram avaliados 170 pacientes com diagnóstico de paraplegia e tetraplegia, em três etapas - levantamento de dados em prontuário, entrevista oral e avaliação do padrão do nado. Os resultados apontaram que grande parte dos pacientes não entrou na piscina ou realizou nado após a lesão medular. A avaliação da adaptação ao meio líquido após a lesão medular demonstrou que grande parte dos pacientes realizou a imersão e flutuação de forma independente, porém, apresentando dificuldade em mudar de decúbito dentro da água. Apenas uma pequena porcentagem retomou a natação após a lesão medular; foi também verificada redução no total dos sujeitos que nadavam regularmente antes. A avaliação apontou que os nados crawl e de costas foram realizados por metade dos avaliados; apenas uma pequena parte realizou nado de peito. CONCLUSÃO: Após a avaliação dos relatos dos pacientes, verificou-se redução na prática da natação, seja como atividade esportiva, física ou de lazer após a lesão medular, apesar de a aptidão para o nado não ter sofrido grandes alterações.Pysical activity, particularly swimming, that brings a lot of benefits to subjects with spinal cord injury, can be started during rehabilitation.

Instead of dropping bombs, they released propaganda materials produced by the Nationalist Party (Guomindang, pleading with the industrial workers, farmers, and petty bourgeois citizens of Japan to stop fighting China and resist their militarist government. This “humanitarian bombardment,” masterminded by Chiang Kai-shek, is little known today—perhaps deservedly so, for it had its embarrassing features. For one, the planes never reached the strategically important areas and merely flew over sparsely populated regions of Kumamoto and Miyazaki prefectures. Further, the propaganda materials were either voluntarily turned over to or confiscated by the Japanese authorities almost as soon as they hit the ground.

    Researches were conducted for the goal of proposing a totally new process enhanced in efficiency and energy saving, and capable of CO2 separation. In fiscal 1997, hydrocarbon materials were reformed by oxygen separated within a system allowing fuel cells to generate power efficiently, when all the emitted CO2 was separated and recovered within the system. Furthermore, cold heat was utilized for the acquisition of liquefied CO2 gas products. A part of oxygen separated at the fuel cell cathode was recycled into the combustion section external to the tubular reaction reformer, and CO2 was separated by mere cooling from the combustion products for the simultaneous production of by-products such as high-purity nitrogen gas and liquefied CO2 for a great improvement in economy. In fiscal 1998, the system was improved. Proposed then was a new system in which an oxygen partial oxidation type reformer assumed the nuclear role, separating all the oxygen at the cathode, reusing part thereof for oxygen enrichment, and feeding the rest thereof into the reformer. The design realized the recycling of the whole of the products of the two cell electrodes into the reformer for the maximum reuse of the products of the hydrogen/oxygen separation function. (NEDO)

As to each equipment of a barge style handling system, conducted were assembly/adjustment/trial run on land and pipe handling experiments on sea. In the experiment, confirmed were pipe transfer function, lifting function, fitting function, grasping function, etc. In the ocean experiment, studied were pipe bending stress, Karman vortex control effects, etc. Relating to the gas lift system, experiments were made on confirmation of fabrication/performance of air compressor. Moreover, a technique of air transportation to the blowing inlet of the gas lift pipe was established by developing an air blowing system and fabricating a long-distance flexible pipe. Concerning the gas/liquid/solid three-phase separator, a cyclone separator was developed, and improvement in lifting efficiency was confirmed. Helped by these, the problems of the gas lift system were almost solved, and a possibility of the commercial-base production system was obtained. 2 refs., 182 figs., 47 tabs.

    A color amenity calculating system was developed. The paper described the details, calculating method, verification, etc. of the system. This calculating system automatically calculates the score of amenity for color of the specified image, and the application field is 'exterior/appearance of building and streets,' 'interior,' and 'fashion.' Elements composing color amenity are the matching degree, familiarity, lightness, brightness and unity of colors. The weighed average value of these becomes general color amenity. Based on 'the survey of the world's youth,' color amenity is calculated by area, assuming that people in 23 areas of 20 countries in the world have different amenity by male/by female. In the system, objects are called up by 'input of stimulus,' and color information of images is numerated by 'measurement of color distribution.' In 'selection of parameters,' it is clarified whom the amenity is for (by country/by sex). The calculation is made instantaneously, indicating the result on the screen. (NEDO)

A velocidade correspondente a MFEL (vMFEL =1,17 ± 0,11 m/s e a VC (1,19 ± 0,12 m/s obtidas durante o nado desimpedido foram significantemente diferentes. Similarmente, a potência correspondente a MFEL (pMFEL = 89,2 ± 15,1 W e a PC (99,4 ± 22,9 W foram diferentes durante o nado atado. Não houve diferença da concentração de lactato na vMFEL (3,54 ± 0,9 mM e pMFEL (3,76 ± 0,6 mM. Coeficientes de Pearson significativos (r > 0,70 foram observados entre os parâmetros vMFEL e pMFEL com seus respectivos pares do modelo tempo-limite. Assim, o nado atado parece ser válido para determinar os limites do domínio pesado/severo, podendo também ser utilizado para avaliar a capacidade aeróbia de nadadores.The aim of this study was to access the P-tLim model in swimming, applying the load control available in full tethered swim condition. Its physiological meaning for the determination of boundary of heavy/severe domains was assessed from the relationships with critical velocity (CV, critical power (CP and maximal lactate steady state (MLSS. The velocity at MLSS (vMLSS = 1.17 ± 0.11 m/s and CV (1.19 ± 0.12 m/s were significantly different. Similarly, the power at MLSS (pMFEL = 89.2 ± 15.1 W and CP (99.4 ± 22.9 W were significantly different. There was no difference between lactate concentration at vMLSS (3.54 ± 0.9 mM and pMLSS (3.76 ± 0.6 mM. Significant Pearson's coefficients (r > 0.70 were observed among vMLSS and P MLSS with their respective values on time-limited model. Thus, the tethered-crawl condition seems to be valid to determine the boundary of heavy/severe domains, and to access the aerobic capacity of swimmers.

    Full Text Available The critical power model has been utilized to estimate the anaerobic and aerobic capacities in swimming. There are studies which evidence the applicability of swimming velocity, force during tethered swimming and stroke rate data to the critical power model. However, the relationship among these estimates derived from freestyle and tethered swimming needs to be established. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between critical force (FCRIT obtained from tethered swimming and critical velocity (VCRIT during freestyle swimming (VCRIT, and their respective critical stroke rates (FBrCRIT. Eleven swimmers of both sexes (16.6 ± 1.3 years, 60 ± 10 kg, 172 ± 8 cm underwent maximal tests to exhaustion in the tethered system and to as fast as possible trials during 200 and 400 m freestyle swimming. There were estimates of: 1 FCRIT and CIAnaer fi tting the three known equations derived from the critical power model (hyperbolic forcetime F-t, linear force-1/time F-1/t, linear impulse-time I-t; 2 VCRIT and CNAnaer during the freestyle tests using the linear distance-time relationship (d-t and; 3 FBrCRIT and CBrAnaer during both kinds of tests (tethered and freestyle. The tethered performance data presented a good fi tting to the critical power model: FCRIT (R2 of 0.98, 0.97 and 0.99 and FBrCRIT-TETHERED (R2 of 0.96, 0.90 and 0.99. There was a high correlation between VCRIT and FCRIT (r= 0.89-0.91. Nevertheless, there was no signifi cant correlation among the estimates of FBrCRIT-TETHERED and FBrCRIT-FREESTYLE, neither among the anaerobic variables. These results indicate that FCRIT can be considered a reliable aerobic capacity index. However, the FBrCRIT-TETHERED did not approach this capacity, despite the good fi tting to the critical power model.

    2004-06-01

    Full Text Available The objective of this study was to analyze the physiological and biomechanical responses of swimmers at different swimming intensities. The intentionally selected sample was composed by seven athletes with swimming times for qualifying on the Brazilian Swimming Championship. A series of 8x200 free style swimming at speeds of 80%, 85%, 90%, 95% and 100% of individual maximum effort was used as the task. A film camera of 60 Hz and an Accusport mMol lactimeter were used for data collection. Descriptive statistics, analysis of variance (ANOVA with “post-hoc” Tukey test and Spearman’s correlation were used for statistical analyses to identify the differences between athletes for the variables blood lactate, crawl stroke frequency (FB and dimension (BR at different intensities. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Based on the results, there were significant differences on swimming technique among effort intensities, for both the physiological and mechanical responses, especially at levels above 95% individual maximum effort. The high correlation between blood lactate and crawl stroke frequency and length, and between crawl stroke frequency and length, with the last two correlations being negative, indicated that the proposed series was adequate to analyze physiological and biomechanical response. It was concluded that as the intensity increases, there is a need for mechanical adjustments to enable the athletes to endure different speeds. It was also possible to establish the ideal swimming speed for each energetic zone, providing data for coaches and athletes to train both speed and technique within the specific energetic zones.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar a reprodutibilidade dos parâmetros biomecânicos da curva força-tempo do estilo "Crawl" em um protocolo de 10 s no nado atado. Dezesseis nadadores do sexo masculino (idade: 20,4 ± 4,0 anos; tempo na prova de 100 m livre: 53,68 ± 0,99 s realizaram dois esforços máximos de 10 s no nado atado. Os parâmetros força pico, força média, taxa de desenvolvimento de força, impulso, duração da braçada, tempo para atingir a força pico e força mínima foram representados pela média de oito braçadas consecutivas obtidas em cada tentativa. Utilizou-se o teste t para observar as diferenças entre os esforços para cada parâmetro. O nível de significância estabelecido foi de 5%. A reprodutibilidade relativa foi medida pelo coeficiente de correlação de Pearson e a consistência entre as duas tentativas pelo coeficiente de correlação intraclasse (CCI. A reprodutibilidade absoluta foi verificada pelo coeficiente de variação (CV. Não foi demonstrada diferença estatisticamente significante para nenhum parâmetro biomecânico quando comparados os dois esforços. Os elevados CCI e baixos CV indicaram alta consistência interna dos parâmetros analisados. Conclui-se que os parâmetros biomecânicos analisados a partir do nado atado são reprodutíveis quando empregado protocolo de curta duração o que demonstra a possibilidade de utilização do protocolo com alto grau de confiabilidade, por parte de treinadores e atletas.The aim of the present study was to analyze the reliability of biomechanical parameters of the front-Crawl's force-time curve in a 10-s protocol.

Os atletas realizaram duas repetições máximas e duas submáximas de 400 m em nado "crawl", com e sem o uso da roupa de neoprene. Foram comparadas a velocidade média (VM, comprimento de braçada (CB, frequência de braçada (FB, índice de nado (IN, percepção subjetiva de esforço (PSE, frequência cardíaca (FC, e concentração de lactato sanguíneo (LAC. Um conjunto de ANOVAs com medidas repetidas do tipo "two-way" foi aplicado. Quando diferenças foram encontradas o teste de Tukey foi empregado. Com o traje de neoprene, em máxima intensidade, o tempo para nadar a distância foi 6,4% menor, com manutenção da FB e aumento da CB, as variáveis psicofisiológicas não diferiram estatisticamente. Em esforço submáximo, o uso do traje de neoprene resultou em menor FB, maior CB, maior IN e em menores valores de FC, LAC e PSE (p In open water swimming competitions, athletes are prone to environmental conditions and are frequently exposed to low temperatures, in contrast to what occurs in indoor competitions. In some circumstances the use of special swimming suits is allowed to avoid hypothermia. The aim of this study was to verify the effects of the use of a neoprene swimming suit in comparison to a conventional swimming suit on a number of cinematic and psychophysiological variables

    Gustavo Antonio Meliscki

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A avaliação postural é importante em qualquer exame físico, tanto na reabilitação como na prevenção, e com ela poderemos adquirir condições de mudar hábitos inadequados ou ineficientes de cada indivíduo. OBJETIVO: Avaliar e comparar os gêneros das alterações posturais dos atletas de natação e verificar a associação dessas alterações com o tipo de respiração. METODOLOGIA: Participaram 60 atletas, sendo que todos preencheram uma ficha, incluindo: sexo, idade, principal estilo do nado, tempo de prática do esporte e tipo de respiração predominante. Na avaliação postural, utilizou-se uma câmera fotográfica digital Sony DSC-W 130 Cyber-Shot® e tripé WT3510A®. Os dados foram analisados de modo descritivo e a associação entre as variáveis utilizou o Teste Exato de Fisher, por meio do software SAS® 9. RESULTADOS: O crawl foi o estilo de nado predominante entre os atletas; notamos que os homens (49% tinham respiração unilateral à direita; e as mulheres (41%, à esquerda. Os homens (58% apresentaram mais hiperlordose lombar e as mulheres (31% escoliose convexa à direita (p = 0,01. Foi apresentada associação entre alterações posturais e o tipo de respiração no sexo masculino, sendo que aqueles que respiravam para o lado direito tinham ombro esquerdo elevado e escoliose convexa à esquerda (p = 0,02. CONCLUSÃO: Os resultados revelaram que os atletas que praticam respiração unilateral à direita apresentavam mais alterações posturais. Por outro lado, a insuficiência de trabalhos publicados sobre a avaliação postural associado ao tipo de respiração de nadadores reforça a necessidade de novos estudos.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: os estilos de nado com movimentos alternados ou simultâneos dos membros superiores podem gerar demandas diferentes sobre os músculos lombopélvicos. A avaliação do alinhamento pélvico no plano transverso contribui para a compreensão da influência dessas diferentes demandas decorrentes do nado sobre a estabilidade pélvica. OBJETIVOS: investigar o efeito do treinamento de estilos com braçadas alternadas ou com braçadas simultâneas sobre a estabilização pélvica no plano transverso. MÉTODOS: foram avaliados 113 nadadores, 63 praticantes de braçada alternada e 50 de braçada simultânea, por meio do teste da ponte com extensão unilateral do joelho. A magnitude e assimetria de queda pélvica foram quantificadas por meio de programa de análise de movimento. O teste de Mann-Whitney foi utilizado para verificar diferenças na assimetria de queda pélvica entre atletas que praticavam braçada alternada e simultânea em cada repetição do teste. A ANOVA com desenho misto foi realizada para investigar diferenças na magnitude de queda pélvica entre repetições considerando a braçada praticada. RESULTADOS: a assimetria de queda pélvica não apresentou diferença entre grupos em nenhuma repetição. A magnitude de queda pélvica foi maior na terceira repetição 15,96 ± 7,18º do que na primeira 15,13 ± 7,52º e segunda 15,16 ± 7,35º em todos os nadadores. Os praticantes de braçada alternada apresentaram maior magnitude de queda pélvica do que os de braçada simultânea 16,46 ± 7,38º versus 14,13 ± 7,08º. CONCLUSÃO: o tipo de braçada praticada não influencia a assimetria do alinhamento pélvico no plano transverso. Entretanto, a magnitude de queda pélvica foi maior na terceira repetição e em praticantes de braçada alternada.

    Resumen Introducción La impulsividad es un rasgo de personalidad multidimensional relacionado con el control del comportamiento y las emociones. Está presente de manera diversa en los trastornos de la conducta alimentaria, particularmente, en la bulimia nerviosa (BN). Aunque la relación entre la impulsividad y BN ha sido objeto de numerosas investigaciones, en la actualidad se desconocen los sustratos neurobiológicos de esta relación. Objetivos Discutir críticamente la evidencia que sugiere que las alteraciones en los sistemas neuronales relacio-nados con las funciones ejecutivas, con la formación de preferencias y con la regulación de los estados emocionales sirven como base para el rasgo de personalidad impulsiva, así como su estado en subgrupos de pacientes con BN. Métodos Búsqueda selectiva de la literatura relevante. Resultados y conclusiones Esta discusión ilustra la complejidad de la relación entre la impulsividad y BN, donde la impulsividad actúa como un factor de vulnerabilidad que puede sensibilizar al sujeto con BN a estados emocionales negativos, durante los cuales modifica el impacto de estímulos internos y externos sobre el comportamiento y su regulación, favoreciendo así patrones de comportamiento maladaptativos e inflexibles.

    Full Text Available Com o processo de construção da Reforma Sanitária brasileira e de implementação do Sistema Único de Saúde ampliou-se no Brasil o debate no sentido de construção de propostas alternativas ao modelo médico-assistencial. É nesse contexto que emerge, no início dos anos noventa, a temática da vigilância em saúde. O tema produziu debate acadêmico a partir de três abordagens teóricas distintas. Uma delas, denominada de vigilância à saúde, era voltada para o controle de causas e riscos em um determi-nado território e visava superar a dicotomia entre as práticas coletivas e as práticas individuais. A outra, denominada vigilância em saúde, correspondia à ampliação do Sistema Nacional de Vigilância Epidemiológica para além das doenças transmissíveis. A terceira foi concebida como uma estratégia de reorganização dos modelos de atenção à saúde.

Con la afirmación de su soberanía política, el Estado nacional posrevolucionario asumió funciones educativas, moralizantes y de reforma social en oposición a la labor que había venido realizando la Iglesia católica. En este artículo examino desde la historia social y política, la impronta que el Estado Nacional y la iglesia católica han fijado en una sociedad local. Se destaca cómo en la apropiación y contestación que los actores locales hacen de los particulares proyectos de sociedad de las dos institu-ciones, se generan sentidos de vida.

    Full Text Available Os cenários atravessados pela manifestação do insólito têm se tor- nado recorrente no âmbito das literaturas do fantástico. A personagem prin- cipal em “Teleco, o coelhinho” (RUBIÃO, 2005, p. 143-152 é um ser entre homem e animal. A narrativa pouco a pouco guia seus leitores pelo universo de um coelhinho, frágil ou intrometido? Não se sabe muito bem quais as fronteiras da convivência entre um homem e um coelho, aparentemente, i- nofensivo. O insólito irrompe dando à narrativa uma exacerbação das ações, com personagens que agem de modo inesperado, mas que no instante se- guinte são incapazes de tomar as atitudes esperadas. O coelho que se meta- morfoseia em homem, ou que almeja tornar-se um, é o mesmo que desperta a solidariedadedo outro a ponto de acolhê-lo em seu lar. Assim, a narrativa rubiana revela ao seu leitor, com maestria, uma vivência quotidiana, corri- queira, em que as pessoas buscam satisfação, porém com ela se debatem frente ao terror experimentado a partir de seus próprios dia-a-dia.

    Full Text Available La ecología de medios ha generado una reflexión importante de la díada tecnología-sociedad. Sin embargo, a pesar de acuñar un concepto relacio-nado con el medio ambiente, diferentes autores han cuestionado que dicho campo multidisciplinario no haya derivado en ningún aporte importante relacionado con el contexto ambiental. Respecto de la ecología de medios, las tecnologías han causado un impacto definitivo sobre el planeta. No obs-tante, recientes tendencias en la investigación en comunicación conceptúan que este cambio trasciende lo simbólico y se instala en lo material con con-secuencias serias en los ecosistemas, en los seres vivos y en la sostenibilidad del planeta. Utilizando como base los planteamientos del filósofo norue-go Arne Naess, el presente artículo intenta contribuir a subsanar la deuda pendiente que tiene la ecología de medios con el contexto ambiental. Para propiciar esta reflexión, extendemos la metáfora de la ecología de medios a la ecología profunda de medios para a partir de este marco analizar la re-lación entre tecnologías y los aparatos/artefactos asociados a los medios y su relación con la sociedad.

Neste trabalho avaliamos a produção de NO sanguíneo em ratos Wistar, submetidos ao nado aeróbio e anaeróbio agudos. A formação do óxido nítrico foi verificada através da dosagem dos produtos de oxidação estáveis do metabolismo do óxido nítrico (nitratos. Para isso utilizamos o método colorimétrico de Griess. Verificamos a existência de uma diferença significativa (p = 0,000261 na produção de óxido nítrico entre a realização do nado aeróbio e o anaeróbio, na qual o aeróbio mostrou-se mais eficiente na promoção de níveis mais elevados. O exercício aeróbio agudo com duração de no mínimo 10 minutos mostrou-se mais eficaz no quesito produção de NO em relação ao exercício de 5 minutos. A positiva relação observada entre o exercício aeróbio e a formação de NO pode ajudar a explicar os efeitos benéficos do exercício na saúde cardiovascular. Sabemos que a prática de exercício aeróbio e sua duração aumentam a biodisponibilidade de NO, o qual é considerado importante regulador fisiológico da pressão arterial.Nitric Oxide (NO exerts important influences in several physiological processes. In this work we evaluated the production of sanguine NO in Wistar rats, submitted to the acute aerobic and anaerobic exercises.

We verified the existence of a significant difference (p = 0.000261 in the production of NO among the accomplishment of the aerobic swimming and the anaerobic, where the aerobic was shown more efficient in the promotion of higher levels. The acute aerobic exercise with duration of at least 10 minutes was shown more effective in the requirement production of NO in relation to the 5 minutes exercise. The positive

    Full Text Available La conciencia ha constituido uno de los principales problemas para las ciencias cognitivas. A un nive l epistemológico de la reflexión, esta dificultad est á dada en cómo se ha conceptualizado el problema, y las entidades conceptuales que constituyen el paradigma del procesamiento de la información, marco imperante del cognitivismo en la neurociencia cogni tiva y la psicología cognitiva. Pensar la concienci a como un producto de un proceso lógico-secuencial es un supuesto difícil de sostener dada la vasta evidencia actual de que el cerebro está en constant e actividad, con múltiples áreas que se activan de manera simultanea, y por otra parte en un organismo que si empre se encuentra en movimiento. Desde esta posici ón, proponemos la comprensión de la conciencia a partir de un análisis desde la filosofía budista, que es un riguroso estudio desde una perspectiva de primera p ersona. La psicología budista plantea a la concienc ia como un fenómeno interdependiente de causas y condi ciones y como un flujo dinámico, de momentos ligados en una relación de causalidad o karma . Este análisis que proveniente de las diferentes e xperiencias meditativas, con una enorme tradición, está relacio nado con los nuevos hallazgos de la neurociencia cognitiva y de la neurodinámica. Lo que nos plantea mos aquí, es proponer una reconceptualización preliminar que podría dar luces para un nuevo model o teórico para el estudio de los procesos conscientes.

    Full Text Available La agricultura moderna considera a la naturaleza como simple productora de recursos naturales y la intervención del hombre se ha tor - nado depredadora ya que la sociedad está ávida de explotar los recursos como mercancías. Surgen entonces estas preguntas: ¿Se están discutiendo académicamente estos procesos de manera compleja? ¿Las facultades o escuelas de Agronomía abordan adecuadamente estos temas? ¿Las carreras de Ciencias Agrarias consideran el entorno como sistema complejo: humano y natural, dentro de una sociedad eco - lógica? Esas problemáticas se analizarán en este artículo, fijando una ruta de reflexión propuesta como pionera en el ámbito colombiano, considerando el papel del profesional en Agronomía y sus aportes hacia la restauración de la Tierra, y abordando la agricultura moderna y la disciplina agronómica dentro de la crisis de la civilización actual; luego, se analizan las condiciones que debe favorecer la Universidad colombiana para la formación de profesionales idóneos. Se encontró que es necesaria una apuesta por un estudio amplio de la agricultura moderna, que la disciplina agronómica debe orientarse al servicio de una cultura de la alegría y el reconocimiento de los otros, y que la Universidad puede jugar un papel fundamental en la formación de agrónomos con pensamiento complejo. Se concluye que es necesario un cambio cultural y que no es posible una relación ecológicamente viable con el mundo natural sin una sociedad ecológica.

Fotografías familiares que se uti- lizan como testimonios de la integridad de la familia; los ausentes se hacen presentes por medio de una fotografía que muestra uno de sus parientes. Mientras que las fotografías muestran las di- ferencias en las relaciones sociales y los cam- bios en la moda, los documentos de archivo se re eren a períodos concretos de la historia palestina: la época bajo dominio jordano, la administración por las fuerzas de ocupación israelíes y el período posterior a los Acuerdos de Oslo, así como la creación de la Autoridad Palestina en Cisjordania y la Franja de Gaza.

    Seventeen young normotensive men with a family history of hypertension in two generations (H) and 15 age-matched control subjects (C) were studied with respect to blood pressure (BP), intraerythrocyte sodium content (IeNa), sodium influx, and rate of sodium efflux. The investigations were done during normal salt intake and after 4 weeks of ordinary intake plus 12 g NaCl daily. BP did not increase significantly in either of the two groups during increased salt intake. During normal salt intake H had a significantly (p less than 0.01) higher IeNa (9.5 +/- 1.5 mmol/L) compared with C (8.2 +/- 1.4 mmol/L). During high salt intake IeNa in H decreased significantly to 8.1 +/- 1.2 mmol/L, the difference from C (7.6 +/- 1.2 mmol/L) not being significant. While the Na influx was similar in the two groups, the rate constant for Na efflux was significantly lower during normal salt intake in H (0.23 +/- 0.08 vs 0.29 +/- 0.1 h-1, p less than 0.05). Salt intake increased the efflux rate constant significantly in H (0.28 +/- 0.08 h-1, p less than 0.05), while it did not change significantly in C (0.32 +/- 0.08 h-1) compared with the value for normal salt intake. Our results suggest that young men with a hereditary predisposition to hypertension have a higher IeNa secondary to a lower rate of Na efflux, while a normal Na influx indicates normal cell permeability to Na. The findings in H during high Na intake--a decreased IeNa and an increased efflux rate of Na--do not favor the existence of a sodium transport inhibitor, in subjects predisposed to hypertension, increasing during high salt intake and volume expansion and acting through inhibition of the Na efflux.

No entanto, pouco se sabe a respeito dos fatores que causam impacto sobre este fenômeno nesta população. O objetivo do estudo foi associar a insatisfação corporal e o grau de comprometimento psicológico ao exercício (GCPE ao comportamento alimentar inadequado em jovens atletas de esportes estéticos. Participaram da pesquisa 47 atletas do sexo feminino de alguns esportes estéticos (ginástica artística, nado sincronizado e saltos ornamentais, com idade entre 12 e 16 anos. Para avaliar o comportamento alimentar de risco para transtornos alimentares (TA, a insatisfação corporal e o GCPE foram utilizados o Eating Attitudes Test (EAT-26, o Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ e a Commitment Exercise Scale (CES, respectivamente. Dobras cutâneas foram aferidas para o cálculo do percentual de gordura das atletas. Os resultados apontaram associação significativa entre a insatisfação corporal e o comportamento alimentar (p<0,05, assim como entre o GCPE e o comportamento alimentar de risco para TA (p<0,05. A partir da regressão linear múltipla, todas as variáveis, com exceção do percentual de gordura, demonstraram influências sobre o comportamento alimentar de jovens atletas. Este mesmo teste também apontou influências do percentual de gordura e da insatisfação corporal sobre os escores da CES. Concluiu-se que a insatisfação corporal e o GCPE foram fatores predisponentes para o comportamento alimentar de risco em atletas de esportes estéticos.

    Atualmente vem crescendo consideravelmente a preocupação dos indivíduos com a saúde e a qualidade de vida. No entanto, com a correria da vida moderna e a falta de tempo, as pessoas valorizam muito os alimentos prontos, rápidos e fáceis de preparar, predominando um consumo desregrado de produtos refi nados, ricos em gorduras saturadas e pobres em nutrientes. Este trabalho teve como objetivo elaborar um panetone com adição de farinha de pupunha (FP, sensorialmente aceitável, e analisar sua composição química e estabilidade. A farinha utilizada na pesquisa foi processada no Laboratório de Nutrição do Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia. Inicialmente foi realizado um experimento para determinar o percentual de farinha de trigo a ser substituída pela farinha de pupunha, sendo escolhida a formulação com 25% FP. Após elaboração do panetone foram realizadas análises físico-químicas, químicas, sensoriais e microbiológicas. O panetone de pupunha apresentou em sua composição química bons teores de proteína (7,78%, lipídios (12,5% e carotenoides (4,16 atividade equivalente de retinol/100g. O produto elaborado apresentou boa aceitabilidade, sendo que todos os consumidores manifestaram intenção positiva em adquiri-lo se for lançado no mercado. A análise microbiológica revelou que o produto se manteve estável pelo período de 90 dias. Assim, pode-se afi rmar que é possível produzir panetones com a substituição de 25% de farinha de trigo pela farinha de pupunha, agregando valor nutricional ao produto sem sinalização de rejeição pelo consumidor.

A los 90 dias (3 meses despues del pico de floraci6n, todos los elemen- tos, excepto el K, han sido consumidos en un 50% del requisito total. Un programa de fertili- zaci6n foliar de elementos menores que quisiera apoyar efectivamente el curso de fonnaci6n, lle- nado y maduraci6n de frutos deberia incluir el suplemento de Zn y B preferiblemente a los 2,5 y 3,5 meses, y un adicional solo de B hacia el momento de lamaduracion, 6,5 meses. Las apli- caciones tardias de Zn no resultan pertinentes pues el consumo de ese elemento finaliza antes elede esa epoca. Otros elementos como el Mg, el N y el K serfan recomendables a los 2,5 y 6,5 me- ses. Si la plantacion tuviera necesidades particu- particulares de Ca, estas deberfan suplirse antes de los primeros 3 meses.

    Full Text Available Na busca por uma melhora significativa no desempenho de nadadores, pesquisadores vêm desenvolvendo e aprimorando procedimentos para avaliar fundamentos como a virada. Este trabalho objetivou verificar o efeito do feedback extrínseco nos indicadores biomecânicos de desempenho da virada no nado crawl. Após o pré-teste, 14 nadadores receberam alternadamente dois tipos de feedback: a Conhecimento de resultados (CR: composto pelas variáveis biomecânicas Tempo de Virada (TV10m, Pico de Força (PFn, Tempo de Contato (TC e Impulso (Imp; b Conhecimento de Performance (CP: por meio de análises qualitativas; sendo CR na primeira sessão e CP na segunda e assim sucessivamente até a sexta sessão (freqüência relativa de feedback de 60% e um teste de transferência uma semana após o pós-teste. Para os indicadores biomecânicos de desempenho, o TV10m aumentou no pós-teste em relação a condição inicial. Entretanto, nas sessões 1e 3, verificou-se uma redução significativa, sendo nestas sessões enfatizado que maiores PFn com menos TC, resultam em viradas mais rápidas. Melhoras foram verificadas no teste de transferência caracterizando mudança no comportamento proporcionada por meio do feedback extrínseco. Os nadadores conseguiram reproduzir maiores PFn em menores TC, como observado na sessão 5 e no teste de transferência. Já o impulso não demonstrou ser uma informação eficiente. Pode-se supor que as informações verbais e a visualização das viradas, orientaram os indivíduos a alterarem características pessoais do movimento de virada e associados a um maior tempo de prática, poderão ter o reflexo no seu desempenho.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Clinical findings suggest that ketamine may be used for the treatment of major depression. The present study aimed to compare behavioral effects and brain Creatine kinase activity in specific brain regions after administration of ketamine and imipramine in rats. METHOD: Rats were acutely given ketamine or imipramine and antidepressant-like activity was assessed by the forced swimming test; Creatine kinase activity was measured in different regions of the brain. RESULTS: The results showed that ketamine (10 and 15mg/kg and imipramine (20 and 30mg/kg reduced immobility time when compared to saline group. We also observed that ketamine (10 and 15mg/kg and imipramine (20 and 30mg/kg increased Creatine kinase activity in striatum and cerebral cortex. Ketamine at the highest dose (15mg/kg and imipramine (20 and 30mg/kg increased Creatine kinase activity in cerebellum and prefrontal cortex. On the other hand, hippocampus was not affected. CONCLUSION: Considering that metabolism impairment is probably involved in the pathophysiology of depressive disorders, the modulation of energy metabolism (like increase in Creatine kinase activity by antidepressants could be an important mechanism of action of these drugs.OBJETIVO: Vários achados clínicos sugerem que a cetamina apresenta efeito antidepressivo.

    Full Text Available La investigación llevada a cabo se sustenta en un estudio exploratorio y descriptivo. El tipo de diseño de la investigación es no experimental retrospectiva porque no se manipulan las variables y se buscan datos del pasado. Fue evaluada una población de N=40 conformada por 28 nadadores, 8 entrenadores y 4 dirigentes de distintas épocas, con una encuesta para recolectar datos de los orígenes y evolución de la natación de competencia en Mendoza. Asimismo se evaluó la evolución de los records de las pruebas de 100 metros en los cuatro estilos, los 400, 800 y 1500 metros libres ambos sexos en pileta de 25 y 50 metros. Se consideró la cantidad de clubes participantes, los nadadores con licencia nacional en los distintos años y las nominaciones para Seleccionados Nacionales en las distintas décadas. No se obtuvo diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre la evolución de los records realizados en pileta de 25 con la de 50 metros. Se comprobó que disminuyó tanto la cantidad de clubes participantes en los torneos desde 1950 hasta el año 2000 como la de nadadores federados. El estudio nos revela que el nivel competitivo de los nadadores se ha elevado por el aumento en las nominaciones a Seleccionados Nacionales. Como conclusión obtuvimos que posiblemente estos valores obtenidos se deban a la evolución en las técnicas de nado y en los métodos de entrenamiento, interrogante que puede servir para próximos estudios y que, en este caso, la cantidad de deportistas no es directamente proporcional a los logros deportivos.------------------------------------------------------------------------------The investigation that we carried out sustains in an exploratory and descriptive study. The type of design of the investigation is non experimental retrospective because the variables are not manipulated and data of the past look for.

    custo acessível e sem riscos aparentes de intoxicações. No presente trabalho estudamos a possibilidade do uso do óleo de cravo como anestésico para juvenis de matrinxã, utilizando-se 63 peixes, expondo-os a banhos anestésicos nas concentrações de 18, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 e 60 mg/L, de forma que foram mensurados os tempos necessários para que os peixes atingissem a perda total de equilíbrio e a incapacidade de retornar a posição normal de nado. A concentração de 40 mg/L foi suficiente para anestesiar juvenis de matrinxã em aproximadamente 1 minuto, sendo a recuperação independente da concentração do anestésico.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Os autores realizaram uma revisão tradicional da literatura sobre os achados neurobiológicos das disfunções do eixo hipotálamo-pituitária-adrenal associados ao transtorno de estresse pós-traumático. MÉTODO: Os achados científicos relevantes foram descritos de acordo com a ordem cronológica de publicação e as características dos estudos, se eram pré-clínicos, relacio-nados à violência precoce como fator de risco e, finalmente, achados clínicos em pacientes portadores de transtorno de estresse pós-traumático. RESULTADOS: Foi encontrada uma literatura rica de achados a respeito de disfunções do eixo hipotálamo-pituitária-adrenal e transtorno de estresse pós-traumático. Os achados mostraram que o transtorno de estresse pós-traumático está associado a disfunções deste eixo e de estruturas cerebrais como o córtex pré-frontal, hipocampo e amídala. Os pacientes com transtorno de estresse pós-traumático apresentam um aumento da responsividade dos receptores de glicocorticóides, sugerindo que a inibição do feedback negativo tem um papel importante na fisiopatologia do quadro. Estudos pré-clínicos com modelos animais de deprivação maternal evidenciaram que, dependendo de quando o trauma ocorre, a disfunção do eixo será diferente. Os estudos clínicos mostram que o estresse precoce está relacionado ao desenvolvimento de psicopatologia durante a vida adulta. CONCLUSÕES: As disfunções do eixo hipotálamo-pituitária-adrenal relacionadas ao transtorno de estresse pós-traumático são evidências robustas e os mecanismos subjacentes a ele são cada vez mais compreendidos.OBJECTIVE: To review the literature on neurobiological findings related to hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis dysfunctions associated with posttraumatic stress disorder.

O lactato sanguíneo aumentou de repouso para o pico de lactato sanguíneo de 1,12 (0,22 para 12,00 (3,23 mmol.L-1. Os resultados de EMG indicaram um aumento da frequência em relação à amplitude para todos os músculos em estudo, exceto para o DA. Correlações negativas foram obtidas entre a frequência e a VN, FG e DC, ou seja, para os músculos BB, TB e PM, verificou-se uma correlação forte entre VN, FG e DC, isto é, à medida que as variáveis cinemáticas aumentam a frequência diminui. As correlações sugerem que a ativação neuromuscular apresenta relação direta com as variáveis cinemáticas, nomeadamente para uma diminuição da frequência, nos músculos BB, TB e PM e para uma elevada amplitude e forte correlação com as variáveis cinemáticas em PM. CONCLUSÃO: A relação entre as variáveis cinemáticas e EMG são determinantes na avaliação da performance em natação pura desportiva, nomeadamente, no suporte na prescrição de exercícios para o aumento da

    Full Text Available Os craniofaringiomas, embora raros entre os tumores intracranianos, representam o tipo mais freqüente de neoplasia congênita do sistema nervoso. Os autores referem a constituição e a ulterior destruição parcial do ducto hipofisário, de cujos restos êsses tumores derivam. Expõem as classificações dos craniofaringiomas sob os pontos de vista macroscópico (císticos, semicísticos e sólidos, histopatológico (cistos epiteliais mucosos, adamantinomas e epiteliomas planocelulares e topográfico (selares, supra-diafragmáticos e intracrânio-selares. A propósito da incidência, ressalta a maior freqüência nas duas primeiras décadas, embora os craniofaringiomas não sejam exclusivos dos jovens. Predominam ligeiramente no sexo masculino. A sintomatologia é estudada de acôrdo com a situação supradiafragmá-tica (manifestações predominantemente hipotálamo-quiasmáticas ou selar (distúrbios das funções gônado e somatotrófica da hipófise. As alterações radiológicas são de grande valor para o diagnóstico, particularmente as que se revelam no craniograma (calcificações e erosões selares, pneumencefalografia, pneumo e iodoventriculografia, e arteriografia cerebral. No tocante ao tratamento dos craniofaringiomas, os autores referem as controvérsias existentes sôbre os resultados da radioterapia. O tratamento cirúrgico comporta técnicas variadas, desde a punção transesfenoidal (hoje quase abandonada, até a craniotomia frontal ou frontotemporal. O problema da excisão radical é discutido, salientando-se as dificuldades na sua consecução, dadas as aderências do tumor com as vias ópticas na região quiasmática, as artérias regionais e o hipotálamo. A elevada mortalidade operatória é atribuida principalmente à manipulação do hipotálamo e ao colapso hipofisário. É estudado com minúcias o emprêgo do ACTH ou cor-tisona associado à cirurgia.

    Full Text Available Atletas de endurance frequentemente realizam exercícios intermitentes, com o objetivo de aumentar a intensidade do treinamento. Um índice bastante importante na avaliação desses atletas é a máxima fase estável de lactato sanguíneo (MLSS, que em geral é determinada com um protocolo contínuo. No entanto, as pausas existentes durante o exercício intermitente podem modificar as condições metabólicas dele. O objetivo deste estudo foi comparar a intensidade de nado correspondente à MLSS determinada de forma contínua (MLSSc e intermitente (MLSSi em atletas com diferentes níveis de rendimento aeróbio. Doze nadadores (22 ± 8 anos; 69,9 ± 7,63kg e 1,76 ± 0,07m e oito triatletas do gênero masculino (22 ± 9 anos; 69,5 ± 10,4kg e 1,76 ± 0,13m, realizaram os seguintes testes em diferentes dias em uma piscina de 25 m: 1 teste máximo na distância de 400m (v400; 2 duas a quatro repetições com duração de 30 min em diferentes intensidades, para a determinação da MLSSc, e; 4 duas a quatro tentativas de 12 x 150s com intervalo de 30s (5:1 em diferentes intensidades, para a determinação da MLSSi. Os nadadores apresentaram maiores valores em relação aos triatletas da v400 (1,38 ± 0,05 e 1,26 ± 0,06m.s-1, respectivamente, MLSSc (1,23 ± 0,05 e 1,08 ± 0,04m.s-1, respectivamente e MLSSi (1,26 ± 0,05 e 1,11 ± 0,05m.s-1, respectivamente. No entanto, a diferença percentual entre a MLSSc e a MLSSi foi estatisticamente similar entre os grupos (3%. Não houve diferença significante entre a concentração de lactato na MLSSc e na MLSSi nos dois grupos. Com base nesses resultados, pode-se concluir que o exercício intervalado utilizado permite um aumento na intensidade do exercício correspondente a MLSS, sem modificação na concentração de lactato, independente do nível de desempenho aeróbio.Endurance athletes frequently perform intermittent exercises with the aim to increase training intensity.

Participaram deste estudo, 23 nadadores do gênero masculino com características antropométricas similares, divididos segundo o nível de performance aeróbia em grupo G1 (maior performance (n = 13 e G2 (menor performance (n = 10. Os indivíduos tinham pelo menos quatro anos de experiência no esporte e treinavam um volume semanal de 30.000 a 45.000m. A VC foi determinada através do coeficiente angular da regressão linear entre as distâncias (200 e 400m e seus respectivos tempos. A V30 foi determinada através da máxima distância realizada em um teste de 30 minutos. Todas as variáveis foram determinadas no nado crawl. A VC foi significantemente maior do que a V30 no grupo G1 (1,30 ± 0,04 vs. 1,23 ± 0,06m.s-1 e no G2 (1,17 ± 0,08 vs. 1,07 ± 0,06m.s-1. As duas variáveis foram maiores no grupo G1.

Para determinar a concentração subletal da cipermetrina e deltametrina na fase de desenvolvimento embrionário foi realizada a indução da ovulação em fêmeas de jundiá através de hormônios, com posterior coleta dos ovos. Os ovos foram hidratados e fertilizados em soluções de cipermetrina e deltametrina em diferentes concentrações, sendo estas: 0,001; 0,01; 0,1; 1,0 e 10,0mg/L para cipermetrina e 0,001; 0,01; 0,1; 0,5 e 1,0mg/L para deltametrina, além do grupo controle (0mg/L. Após a fertilização, os ovos permaneceram em recipientes com os respectivos pesticidas até o momento da eclosão onde foi analisada a taxa de eclosão. Em seguida as larvas, a partir da eclosão dos ovos, foram mantidas nas respectivas concentrações de cipermetrina e deltametrina para analisar a taxa de sobrevivência frente aos inseticidas testados, durante 12 e 24 horas. Em relação as concentrações letais e subletais de jundiás jovens, estes apresentaram-se sensíveis à cipermetrina nas concentrações testadas, apresentando sinais de intoxicação como perda de equilíbrio, alteração na natação, dispnéia mantendo a boca e os opérculos abertos, nados verticais e movimentos súbitos de natação em forma de espiral. A intensidade destes sinais variou proporcionalmente a concentração utilizada. As concentrações acima de 3,0mg/L foram consideradas letais para a espécie em 96 horas, pois todos os animais expostos a concentrações entre 3,0 e 20,0mg/L vieram a óbito, enquanto que as concentrações entre 1,0 e 2,5mg/L são subletais. A CL50 96 horas da cipermetrina para o jundiá foi 1,71mg/L. Em relação aos efeitos da cipermetrina e deltametrina sobre a fase de desenvolvimento embrionário, os resultados mostraram que ambos os piretróides diminu
