    Full Text Available  SAMMENDRAGDebutalder med alkoholrus er en sterk prediktor for senere alkoholbruk. I denne undersøkelsen har visammenliknet de som starter med alkohol tidlig og før det er kulturelt akseptert, med ungdommenesom begynner i konfirmasjonsalder og de som utsetter alkoholdebuten. Vi finner at gruppen sombegynner tidlig ikke bare bryter de lokale tradisjonene for alkoholkonsum, men er i opposisjon tilnormer og autoriteter generelt. Alkohol er et positivt symbol for gruppen og det å ruse seg et ritualesom gir mening i deres miljø. Hjemmet står i den sterkeste posisjonen til å kunne utsette ungdommensalkoholdebut. Vi skisserer hvilke implikasjoner dette bør ha for strategien i det forebyggende arbeidet.

Man kan sige at fortroligheden er enten medieret - fx gennem sprog, skrift, håndtering af værktøj osv., eller opstår i og med de stabile formationer - som fx det vi i fremskredne stadier kender som vaner. Vaner kan opfattes som stabile formationer, som mønstre; men det kan de 'medierede fortroligheder......' også, hvis man i stedet for at lægge vægten på værktøjet eller mediet, lægger den på teknikken - og dermed på en praksis eller en kunnen. I min afhandling fører det til et radikalt materiale-begreb: 'egentligt' materiale kan ikke være nærværende - nærværende véd vi ikke andet om det end at der er noget...... Udgangspunktet for afhandlingens kulturkritiske dimension, er dén påstand eller dobbelt-tese at: 1) kulturen (for tiden) foretrækker visse teknikker frem for andre.

    We introduce a class of F-theory vacua whose smooth elliptic fibers admit a vanishing $j$-invariant, and construct a weak coupling limit associated with such vacua which we view as the `square' of the Sen limit. We find that while Sen's limit is naturally viewed as an orientifold theory, the universal tadpole relation which equates the D3 charge between the associated F-theory compactification and the limit we construct suggests that perhaps the limiting theory is in fact an oriented theory c...

  4. Bifurcated SEN with Fluid Flow Conditioners

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This work evaluates the performance of a novel design for a bifurcated submerged entry nozzle (SEN used for the continuous casting of steel slabs. The proposed design incorporates fluid flow conditioners attached on SEN external wall. The fluid flow conditioners impose a pseudosymmetric pattern in the upper zone of the mold by inhibiting the fluid exchange between the zones created by conditioners. The performance of the SEN with fluid flow conditioners is analyzed through numerical simulations using the CFD technique. Numerical results were validated by means of physical simulations conducted on a scaled cold water model. Numerical and physical simulations confirmed that the performance of the proposed SEN is superior to a traditional one. Fluid flow conditioners reduce the liquid free surface fluctuations and minimize the occurrence of vortexes at the free surface.

    We investigate the properties of inner and outer horizon thermodynamics of Sen black hole (BH) both in Einstein frame (EF) and string frame (SF). We also compute area (or entropy) product, area (or entropy) sum of the said BH in EF as well as SF. In the EF, we observe that the area (or entropy) product is universal, whereas area (or entropy) sum is not universal. On the other hand, in the SF, area (or entropy) product and area (or entropy) sum don't have any universal behaviour because they all are depends on Arnowitt-Deser-Misner (ADM) mass parameter. We also verify that the first law is satisfied at the Cauchy horizon as well as event horizon (EH). In addition, we also compute other thermodynamic products and sums in the EF as well as in the SF. We further compute the Smarr mass formula and Christodoulou's irreducible mass formula for Sen BH. Moreover, we compute the area bound and entropy bound for both the horizons. The upper area bound for EH is actually the Penrose like inequality, which is the first geometric inequality in BHs. Furthermore, we compute the central charges of the left and right moving sectors of the dual CFT in Sen/CFT correspondence using thermodynamic relations. These thermodynamic relations on the multi-horizons give us further understanding the microscopic nature of BH entropy (both interior and exterior). (orig.)

    Full Text Available This essay presents two contributions of the Amartya Sen to the debates over ethics and economics. First, his break with utilitarianist and welfarist ethics -the foundation of normative economics- and his call to modify the metrics of utility, the only 'field of information' that these normative traditions use to judge individual and social welfare, that is, people's opportunities, the impact of public policies and the
    success of social organizations. Second, his proposal for a valorization scheme that transcends the narrow conception of utilitarianism, which does not fall into ethical relativism and which incorpora tes the analysis of real rights and freedoms without taking refuge in deontological moral reasoning. With that, he demonstrates that one of his greatest contributions
    to normative economics is his effort to construct a framework
    for pluralist and consequentialist (based on consequences moral evaluation, which abandons the criterion of utility, allows the evaluation of the level of people's real freedom, and admits the possibility of a moral 'objective' sensitive to the life plans of individuals and to the achievement or fail of their rights.Este ensayo presenta dos aportes de Amartya Sen a las discusiones sobre ética y economía. Primero su ruptura con la ética utilitarista y bienestarista -fundamento de la economía normativa- y su llamado a modificar la métrica de la utilidad, unico 'ambito de información' que estas tradiciones normativas usan para juzgar el bienestar individual y social, es decir, las oportunidades de las personas, el impacto de las politicas públicas y el éxito de las organizaciones sociales. Segundo, su propuesta de un esquema de valoración que trascienda la concepción estrecha del utilitarismo, que no caiga en el relativismo ético y que incorpore el análisis de los derechos y las libertades reales sin acojer al razonamiento moral deontológico.

    Full Text Available The article discusses the idea of ‘human rights’ and the Amartya Sen’s reflections on that topic. By assumption, Sen does not present a catalogue of human rights, yet he claims that the language of human rights can be used to talk about the so-called human capabilities (the main concept of Sen’s theory. The aporia that exists in the current paradigm of human rights consists in the fact that it has been based on a few (liberal foundations, while, on the other hand, it has been extended into a broad system of individual rights/entitlements conflicting with their foundation. Each of those systems of rights entails a specific vision of social life. The liberal tradition postulates the existence of a minimal state, which guards freedom, life and property. In the leftist tradition, in contrast, there is postulated the existence of a welfare state, which satisfies people’s ever growing needs, based on an extensive bureaucracy and high taxes – under the patronage of the idea of social justice. Those social visions cannot be reconciled – they lead to conflicts. In this text, I present the problem of inconsistency and tension within the ‘human rights’, contrasting Amartya Sen’s theory with classical liberalism of John Locke. I claim that assessment of the contemporary ‘human rights’ theory should depend on whether a given theory is capable of proper determination and – at least to some extent – solving the problem of incoherence and tensions present in the Western ‘human rights’ paradigm. It seems that Sen’s conception cannot meet that challenge.

  14. Er prenatale eller postnatale forhold viktigst for voksen helse? Eksemplet forhøyet blodtrykk

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hans Magne Gravseth

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Artikkelen tar utgangspunkt i to forskjellige forklaringsmodeller for voksen sykdom: programmering og livsløpstilnærming. Programmering innebærer en påvirkning i en tidlig kritisk fase som resulterer i en varig skade, mens en livsløpstilnærming er studien av langsiktige effekter av påvirkninger gjennom alle livsfaser. Disse to måtene å forklare voksen sykdom på blir demonstrert ved å bruke eksemplet forhøyet blodtrykk. Vi oppsummerer funn i nyere studier som belyser hvordan determinanter i ulike livsfaser, særlig i de første leveår, kan påvirke senere blodtrykk.Man finner gjennomgående en svak invers sammenheng mellom fødselsvekt og senere blodtrykk, og det er vist en svak gunstig effekt på blodtrykket av å bli brysternært. Tidlig innhentingsvekst er hovedsakelig vist å ha en uheldig virkning på senere blodtrykk; det kan imidlertid være fordelaktig i utviklingsland. BMI er sterkt assosiert med blodtrykk hos både voksne og barn. Enkelte har også funnet en interaksjon mellom fødselsvekt og voksen BMI, med sterkest invers sammenheng mellom fødselsvekst og senere blodtrykk hos de med en høy voksen BMI. Siden både blodtrykk og BMI sporer fra barndom til voksen alder, er tidlig forebygging viktig. Blant voksne er det tendens til en sosial gradient i blodtrykket, i hovedsak mediert gjennom tradisjonelle risikofaktorer.Ensidig fokusering på så vel programmering som på voksenlivets risikofaktorer har ofte begrenset forklaringsverdi. I en livsløpstilnærming, som har kommet som en respons på dette, tar man hensyn til både programmering, livsstilsfaktorer og sosiale forhold. The paper describes two different explanation models for adult disease: programming and the life course approach. In programming, there is a stimulus or insult at an early critical period of development that has lasting significance, whereas a life course approach is the study of long-term effects of exposures during all stages of life.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Emergency Departments (EDs are confronted with progressive overcrowding. As a consequence, the workload for ED physicians increases and waiting times go up with the risk of unnecessary complications and patient dissatisfaction. To cope with these problems, Specialized Emergency Nurses (SENs, regular ED-nurses receiving a short, injury-specific course, were trained to assess and treat minor injuries according to a specific protocol. Methods An economic evaluation was conducted alongside a randomized controlled trial comparing House Officers (HOs and SENs in their assessment of ankle and foot injuries. Cost prices were established for all parts of healthcare utilization involved. Total costs of health care utilization were computed per patient in both groups. Cost-effectiveness was investigated by comparing the difference in total cost between groups with the difference in sensitivity and specificity between groups in diagnosing fractures and severe sprains. Finally, cost-effectiveness ratios were calculated and presented on a cost-effectiveness plane. Results No significant differences were seen between treatment groups for any of the health care resources assessed. However, the waiting times for both first assessment by a treatment officer and time spent waiting between hearing the diagnosis and final treatment were significantly longer in the HO group. There was no statistically significant difference in costs between groups. The total costs were € 186 (SD € 623 for patients in the SEN group and € 153 (SD € 529 for patients in the HO group. The difference in total costs was € 33 (95% CI: – € 84 to € 155. The incremental cost-effectiveness ratio was € 27 for a reduction of one missed diagnosis and € 18 for a reduction of one false negative. Conclusion Considering the benefits of the SEN-concept in terms of decreased workload for the ED physicians, increased patient satisfaction and decreased waiting times

    Due to launch of Sentinel-2 mission European Space Agency (ESA) started Sentinel-2 for Agriculture (Sen2-Agri) project coordinated by Universite catholique de Louvain (UCL). Ukraine is selected as one of 3 country level demonstration sites for benchmarking Sentinel-2 data due to wide range of main crops (both winter and summer), big fields and high enough climate variability over the territory [1-2]. Within this county level demonstration main objectives are following: i) Sentinel's products quality assessment and their suitability estimation for the territory of Ukraine [2]; ii) demonstration in order to convince decision makers and state authorities; iii) assessment of the personnel and facilities required to run the Sen2-Agri system and creation of Sen-2 Agri products (crop type maps and such essential climatic variable as Leaf Area Index - LAI [3]). During this project ground data were collected for crop land mapping and crop type classification along the roads within main agro-climatic zones of Ukraine. For LAI estimation we used indirect non-destructive method which is based on DHP-images and VALERI protocol. Products created with use of Sen2-Agri system deployed during project execution and results of neural-network approach utilization will be compared. References Kussul, N., Lemoine, G., Gallego, F.

  1. Hidden and generalized conformal symmetry of Kerr–Sen spacetimes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ghezelbash, A M; Siahaan, H M

    2013-01-01

    It is recently conjectured that generic non-extremal Kerr black hole could be holographically dual to a hidden conformal field theory (CFT) in two dimensions. Moreover, it is known that there are two CFT duals (pictures) to describe the charged rotating black holes which correspond to angular momentum J and electric charge Q of the black hole. Furthermore these two pictures can be incorporated by the CFT duals (general picture) that are generated by SL(2,Z) modular group. The general conformal structure can be revealed by looking at charged scalar wave equation in some appropriate values of frequency and charge. In this regard, we consider the wave equation of a charged massless scalar field in the background of Kerr–Sen black hole and show that in the ‘near region’, the wave equation can be reproduced by the Casimir operator of a local SL(2,R) L ×SL(2,R) R hidden conformal symmetry. We find the exact agreement between macroscopic and microscopic physical quantities like entropy and absorption cross section of scalars for Kerr–Sen black hole. We then find an extension of vector fields that in turn yields an extended local family of SL(2,R) L ×SL(2,R) R hidden conformal symmetry, parameterized by one parameter. For some special values of the parameter, we find a copy of SL(2,R) hidden conformal algebra for the charged Gibbons–Maeda–Garfinkle–Horowitz–Strominger black hole in the strong deflection limit.

  2. Cosmic censorship conjecture in Kerr-Sen black hole

    2017-06-01

    The validity of the cosmic censorship conjecture for the Kerr-Sen black hole, which is a solution to the low-energy effective field theory for four-dimensional heterotic string theory, is investigated using charged particle absorption. When the black hole absorbs the particle, the charge on it changes owing to the conserved quantities of the particle. Changes in the black hole are constrained to the equation for the motion of the particle and are consistent with the laws of thermodynamics. Particle absorption increases the mass of the Kerr-Sen black hole to more than that of the absorbed charges such as angular momentum and electric charge; hence, the black hole cannot be overcharged. In the near-extremal black hole, we observe a violation of the cosmic censorship conjecture for the angular momentum in the first order of expansion and the electric charge in the second order. However, considering an adiabatic process carrying the conserved quantities as those of the black hole, we prove the stability of the black hole horizon. Thus, we resolve the violation. This is consistent with the third law of thermodynamics.

This paper shows how justice and development are highly related in Sen's approach based on the concept of capability. Along with this paper, we will present some debates between Sen and John Rawls, beside other critics. This is done to explain the complex theoretical system elaborated by him. In concluding, the paper shows that the objective of Sen is to find a satisfactory concept of development that is explicit in its ethical presumptions.

For the latter purpose, Rawls' metric of primary goods is preferable.

    2016-04-01

    Decision-making for sustainable environmental resource management or risk prevention is facing the problem of constantly changing conditions related to the projected changes of climate, demography and socio-economy. Herefore, adaptable tools and methods which can reflect such changes are needed for an efficient management. The need to improve existing tools is a challenge the departments of German environmental authorities at state and federal level are facing at this time. Additionally the increasing demands for work process optimization due to financial cutbacks are coming into play. Consequently the need for suitable adaptation measurements for short and long term changes of environmental state variables is growing. The importance of spatio-temporal data, providing continuous observation about the state of the environmental system and its changes, is therefore increasing in order to elaborate adaptation strategies. In this case earth observation is a useful source for the required data. With the new Sentinel fleet, ESA's Copernicus Program is providing a possibility to obtain such information free in high temporal and spatial resolution. The BMVI funded project SenThIS, a collaborative project by the Thuringian State Institute for Environment and Geology (TLUG), the Thuringian Forest Department and two SMEs EOS GmbH and Feiffer consult is aiming at utilizing Copernicus data and services for operational tasks on a federal level. It addresses this aforementioned deficit through the development and implementation of a processing chain for synergetic and automated application of remote sensing data and products to accomplish operational state tasks. The product development is characterized by the synergetic application of remote sensing data and suitable models. Design and calibration of the models base on Sentinel 1/2 data and additional information (e.g. meteorological data, in-situ measurements). This results in products of highly temporal and spatial resolution

    2018-01-10

    On 17 February 1968, Bombay surgeon Prafulla Kumar Sen transplanted a human heart, becoming the fourth surgeon in the world to attempt the feat. Even though the patient survived just three hours, the feat won Sen worldwide acclaim. The ability of Sen's team to join the ranks of the world's surgical pioneers raises interesting questions. How was Sen able to transplant so quickly? He had to train a team of collaborators, import or reverse engineer technologies and techniques that had been developed largely in the United States, and begin conversations with Indian political authorities about the contested concept of brain death. The effort that this required raises questions of why. Sen, who worked at a city hospital in Bombay that could not provide basic care for all its citizens, sought a technology that epitomized high-risk high-cost, health care. To accomplish his feat, Sen navigated Cold War tensions and opportunities, situating his interests into those of his hospital, municipal authorities, Indian nationalism, Soviet and American authorities, the Rockefeller Foundation, and others. The many contexts and interests that made Sen's work possible created opportunities for many different judgments about the success or failure of medical innovation. © The Author(s) 2018.

    Full Text Available Nos inventários da arte do século XX, o trabalho de Marcel Duchamp é com freqüência compreendido apenas em sua dimensão conceitual, ignorando-se uma possível presença do sensível em sua obra. Partindo do conceito da obra de arte como “um ser de sensação” criado por Gilles Deleuze e Félix Guattari, proponho, nesse trabalho problematizar tanto o lugar reservado a Duchamp pela história da arte, quanto os limites da definição de arte formulada por aqueles filósofos. Para explorar a possibilidade de se pensar uma poética duchampiana este texto se vale estrategicamente de duas referências: as teses de Rosalind Krauss a respeito da materialidade e do erotismo na obra do artista e os conceitos de duração, memória hábito e reconhecimento atento formulados pelo filósofo Henri Bergson.

I claim that assessment of the contemporary ‘human rights’ theory should depend on whether a given theory is capable of proper determination and – at least to some extent – solving the problem of incoherence and tensions present in the Western ‘human rights’ paradigm. It seems that Sen’s conception cannot meet that challenge.

  17. Development and quality of life: a critique of Amartya Sen's Development as freedom.

    Navarro, V

    2000-01-01

    Presented here is a critical analysis of some of the major theses of Amartya Sen, as presented in his seminal work Development As Freedom. The author suggests that Sen's work, while representing a major break with the dominant neoliberal position reproduced in most national and international development agencies, is insufficient to explain the key relationship between freedom and development. The absence of an analysis of the power relations that cause and reproduce underdevelopment through national and international political institutions leaves Sen's work wanting. The author shows how Sen's interpretation of events and the conclusions derived from them, such as an explanation of famine in Bangladesh, are insufficient--when not faulty. The author also critically analyzes the United Nations Development Program reports, which, while documenting the nature and consequences of underdevelopment, barely touch on the political context in which underdevelopment occurs.

Der Artikel diskutiert zwei dieser Ansätze, nämlich die ökologischen «nature studes» und William Kilpatricks «Projektmethode». Deweys Theorie des Problemlösens wird bis heute vor allem mit der Projektmethode in Verbindung gebracht. Der Artikel zeigt, dass die rein didaktische Inanspruchnahme Deweys Theorie nicht gerecht wird und Popper sie vermutlich deswegen nicht beachtet hat.

    Full Text Available Introduction Torque teno virus (TTV and SEN virus are circular single-stranded DNA viruses that cause blood-borne infections. The SEN virus (SEN-V was originally detected in the serum of an injection drug user infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV. Recently TTV was discovered as a potential causative agent of non-A-E hepatitis. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of the SEN-V-D/H and TTV in HIV patients and healthy blood donors in Iran. Methods One hundred and fifty HIV patients with a mean age of 50.46 ± 18.46 years and 150 healthy blood donors with a mean age of 48.16 ± 13.73 years were included in this study. TTV and SEN-V were detected by the PCR and were quantitatively assayed by competitive PCR (nested and semi-nested PCR. Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs were used to determine the heterogeneity of TTV. Results TTV and SEN-V were detected 96 (64% and 84 (56% of 150 HIV patients respectively. These rates were 34% (n=51 and 37.33% (n=56 in healthy blood donors (significant, p<0.05. PCR detected SEN-V/TTV DNA from 32 of the healthy blood donors (21.33%, while 65 (43.33% of HIV patients were positive for SEN-V/TTV DNA. Of 150 HIV patients, 32.66% and 23.33% were positive for SEN-V-H and SEN-V-D, respectively and 18.66% (n=28 were co-infected with SEN-V-D/H. Conclusions The prevalence of SEN-VD/H and TTV is higher in HIV patients than in healthy blood donors in Southern Iran. Our results suggest that TTV and SEN-V might play a role in the development of liver disease in patients with immunodeficiency diseases.

    Two Serratia marcescens strains, SEN and ICC-4, isolated from diseased insect cadavers were observed to differ considerably in their virulence towards Spodoptera litura. The present study was aimed to characterize the possible virulence factors present in the virulent Serratia marcescens strain SEN. Both the S. marcescens strains were evaluated for the presence of various lytic enzymes such as chitinase, lipase, protease and phospholipase. The virulent S. marcescens strain SEN was observed to possess considerably higher activity of chitinase and protease enzymes; activity of phospholipase enzyme was also higher. Although, all the three toxin genes shlA, phlA and swr could be detected in both the S. marcescens strains, there was a higher expression of these genes in the virulent strain SEN. S. marcescens strain ICC-4 showed greater reduction in overall growth yield in the post-exponential phase in the presence of midgut juice and hemolymph of S. litura larvae, as compared to S. marcescens strain SEN. Proliferation of the S. marcescens strain SEN was also considerably higher in foregut, midgut and hemolymph of S. litura larvae, as compared to strain ICC-4. Peritrophic membrane treated with broth culture of the S. marcescens strain SEN showed higher damage as compared to strain ICC-4. The peritrophic membrane of larvae fed on diet treated with the virulent strain showed considerable damage while the peritrophic membrane of larvae fed on diet treated with the non-virulent strain showed no damage. This is the first report documenting the fate of ingested S. marcescens in S. litura gut and the relative expression of toxin genes from two S. marcescens strains differing in their virulence towards S. litura.

    Food allergy is common in children and young adults and may be difficult to diagnose and is at present treated with avoidance of the food in question. The aim of this report is to share our clinical experiences monitoring omalizumab treatment by basophil allergen threshold sensitivity, CD-sens. Five children, 6-16 years of age, with a severe milk allergy including episodes of anaphylaxis and IgE-antibodies, between 30 and 160 kUA/L to casein and alpha-lactalbumin (milk proteins), were treated with omalizumab. CD-sens, was tested prior to and after 4 months of omalizumab and if turned negative, it was followed by an oral milk challenge. All children became negative in CD-sens and had a negative milk challenge, but one child required doubling of the omalizumab dose to achieve a negative CD-sens before a challenge was done. Omalizumab appears useful in treatment of severe food allergy, e.g., anaphylaxis to milk, and CD-sens monitoring may decide when and how to perform a food challenge.

Mittels Fallbeispielen zur religiösen Bildung am religiösen Markt (= religiöse Institutionen außerhalb des Schulraums wird in diesem Beitrag aufgezeigt, dass der islamische Religionsunterricht im Gegensatz zu den religiösen Institutionen keine Monopolkirche sein darf, in der vorwiegend eine Art Volksfrömmigkeit vermittelt wird.

Based on case studies for religious education in the religious market (outside the education area this paper shows that the Islamic religious education cannot offer Church`s monopoly and act like origin-oriented religious institutions to mediate popular piety.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available As evidenced in the title, this article presents a critical analysis of several proposals developed by Amartya Sen. It makes two central critiques of Sen’s work; highlighting the absence of arguments that take into account relationships of power, as well as the lack of an emphasis on the relationship between the individual and society. At the same time, evidence will be presented that Sen’s perspective is not an alternative to the dominant economic discourse, neither in its analytic intent or its normative orientation. One can conclude that his proposals are presented, more appropriately, as a sophisticated theory of the principles that presently govern liberalism. Therefore, his formulations do not differ much from those that are currently being implemented in the majority of countries.

Således udgør genren med sin særlige institutionelle rolle et væsentligt spor til konkurrencealderens omdefinerede public service-begreb, og den kan derfor også være med til at pejle faktaformidlingens fremtidige udvikling.

  7. Sediment accumulation owing to backwater effect in the lower reach of the Stung Sen River, Cambodia

    2017-11-01

    We examined channel bars at two sites in the lower reach of the Stung Sen River, which flows into Lake Tonle Sap, Cambodia, to identify sediment transport and accumulation processes during monsoon-related flood events and to investigate how sediment transport capacity changes as a result of enhanced backwater effect of the lake. Channel bars in the lower reach of the Stung Sen River that emerge in the dry season were classified into type A (lateral bars), type B (point bars), type C (concave-bank benches) and type D (diagonal and island bars, or fluvial dunes) based on Nagumo et al.'s previous study. Type B, type C, and type D channel bars were at our study sites of SEN-01 and SEN-02, about 83 and 77 km from the river mouth respectively. Computation of water surface profiles showed that sediment transport capacity of the Stung Sen River decreased abruptly after the peak flow stage because of the backwater effect from Lake Tonle Sap during the decreasing flow stage. Our observations suggest that alternating layers of sand and silt to clay layers accumulate to form type C channel bars, corresponding to changes in sediment transport capacity controlled by backwater effects from Lake Tonle Sap and by changes in flow depths and associated slackwater systems. The accumulation of alternating silt and sand layers of type B channel bars results from lateral sediment transportation that is accelerated with an increase of secondary flow, whereas development of type D channel bars is related to bedload mobility.

Var det først og fremst lavrisikogrupper – friske ogrøykfrie kvinner – som brukte p-piller av kombinasjonstype, slik gjeldende anbefalinger råder til? Var progesteronbrukerneet utvalg av særlig helsebevisste kvinner? Hvor utbredt var bruken av østrogen i denne aldersgruppen?Var det tegn til at østrogenbrukerne er en “healthy selection”, slik utenlandske studier har vist?Materialet er fra 40-åringsundersøkelser i 11 norske fylker i tiden 1997-99. Resultatene viser at 3,5% avkvinnene brukte kombinerte antikonseptiva og at disse utgjorde et “sunt utvalg” med lave andeler røykere og godhelse. De 9,4% av kvinnene som brukte progesteron alene, skilte seg derimot lite fra premenopausale kvinner utenhormonbruk. De 2,4% av kvinnene som brukte østrogen, hadde mindre god helse, høyere andel røykere og lavereutdanningsnivå, sammenlignet med premenopausale kvinner. Men sammenligning innen gruppen av post- og perimenopausalekvinner viste ingen vesentlig forskjell mellom østrogenbrukerne og andre. Resultatet fra den førstekontrollerte studien av østrogen og hjertesykdom kom i 1998, men førte ikke til noen påviselig forskjell i seleksjonentil østrogenbruk fra 1997 til 1999.Konklusjonen er at kvinnene som brukte kombinerte antikonseptiva i 40-årsalderen var en “sunn seleksjon” itråd med det som blir anbefalt, mens de som brukte progesteron alene skilte seg lite ut fra kvinner som ikke bruktehormoner. Kvinner som brukte østrogen i denne unge alderen, sto fram som en helsemessig risikogruppe imaterialet som helhet, men skilte seg lite ut fra andre antatt post- eller perimenopausale kvinner i 40-årsalderen.Graff-Iversen, S. 40-year old female sex hormone users: healthy selections or risk groups?

    2017-12-01

    While data publication in support of reuse and scientific reproducibility is increasingly being recognized as a key aspect of modern research practice, best practices are still to be developed at the level of scientific communities. Often, such practices are discussed in the abstract - as community standards for data plans or as requirements for yet-to-be-built software - with no clear path to community adoption. In contrast, the Sediment Experimentalist Network, supported through the National Science Foundation's (NSF) EarthCube initiative, has encouraged an iterative, practice-based approach within its community that has resulted in the publication of dozens of datasets, comprised of millions of files totaling more than 4 TB in size, and the documentation of more than 100 experimental procedures, instruments, and facilities, by multiple research teams. A key element of SEN's approach has been to leverage cloud-based data services that provide robust core capabilities with community-based management and customization capabilities. These services - data sharing, curation, and publication services developed through the NSF-supported Sustainable Environment - Actionable Data (SEAD) project and the wiki-based SEN Knowledge Base (KB) - have allowed the SEN team to ground discussions in reality and leverage the practical questions arising as researchers publish data to drive discussion and evolve towards better practices. In this presentation we summarize how SEN interacts with researchers, the best practices that have been developed, and the capabilities of SEAD and the SEN KB that support them. We also describe issues that have arisen in the community - related, for example, to recommended and required metadata, individual, project and community branding, and data version and derivation relationships - and describe how SEN's outreach activities, collaboration with the SEAD team, and the flexible design of the data services themselves have, in combination, been able to

    2001-01-01

    Standardised health-related quality of life questionnaires play an increasing role as measures of outcome in the evaluation of health care interventions. However, problems can arise when the selected functions or dimensions of such standardised measures are not in line with the intervention that is the focus of the research. Furthermore, the subjective element of quality of life makes standardised questionnaires vulnerable to the coping mechanism, thereby decreasing their sensitivity. The capability approach of the economist and philosopher Amartya Sen offers a descriptive concept that contributes to a better understanding of these problems. This article provides an introduction to the ideas of Sen for researchers who wish to go beyond the traditional framework of measuring health-related quality of life.

    2017-11-01

    It is reported that Kerr-Newman and Kerr-Sen black holes are unstable to perturbations of charged massive scalar field. In this paper, we study analytically the complex frequencies which characterize charged massive scalar fields in a near-extremal Kerr-Sen black hole. For near-extremal Kerr-Sen black holes and for charged massive scalar fields in the eikonal large-mass M ≫μ regime, where M is the mass of the black hole, and μ is the mass of the charged scalar field, we have obtained a simple expression for the dimensionless ratio ωI/(ωR-ωc) , where ωI and ωR are, respectively, the imaginary and real parts of the frequency of the modes, and ωc is the critical frequency for the onset of super-radiance. We have also found our expression is consistent with the result of Hod [Phys. Rev. D 94, 044036 (2016), 10.1103/PhysRevD.94.044036] for the case of a near-extremal Kerr-Newman black hole and the result of Zouros and Eardly [Ann. Phys. (N.Y.) 118, 139 (1979), 10.1016/0003-4916(79)90237-9] for the case of neutral scalar fields in the background of a near-extremal Kerr black hole.

    Full Text Available General classification of mathematical statements divides them into universal, those of the form xA , and existential ЭxA ones. Common formulations of impossibility theorems of K. J. Arrow and A. K. Sen are represented by the statements of the form "there is no x such that A". Bearing in mind logical equivalence of formulae ¬ЭxA and x¬A, we come to the conclusion that the corpus of impossibility theorems, which appears in the theory of social choice, could make a specific and recognizable subclass of universal statements. In this paper, on the basis of the established logical and methodological criteria, we point to a sequence of extremely significant "impossibility theorems", reaching throughout the history of mathematics to the present days and the famous results of Arrow and Sen in field of mathematical economics. We close with specifying the context which makes it possible to formulate the results of Arrow and Sen accurately, presenting a new direct proof of Sen’s result, with no reliance on the notion of minimal liberalism. .

    Full Text Available Background:Transposition of the great arteries (TGA is the most common cyanotic cardiopathy, with an incidence ranging between 0.2 and 0.4 per 1000 live births. Many patients not treated in the first few months of life may progress with severe pulmonary vascular disease. Treatment of these patients may include palliative surgery to redirect the flow at the atrial level.Objective:Report our institutional experience with the palliative Senning procedure in children diagnosed with TGA and double outlet right ventricle with severe pulmonary vascular disease, and to evaluate the early and late clinical progression of the palliative Senning procedure.Methods:Retrospective study based on the evaluation of medical records in the period of 1991 to 2014. Only patients without an indication for definitive surgical treatment of the cardiopathy due to elevated pulmonary pressure were included.Results:After one year of follow-up there was a mean increase in arterial oxygen saturation from 62.1% to 92.5% and a mean decrease in hematocrit from 49.4% to 36.3%. Lung histological analysis was feasible in 16 patients. In 8 patients, pulmonary biopsy grades 3 and 4 were evidenced.Conclusion:The palliative Senning procedure improved arterial oxygen saturation, reduced polycythemia, and provided a better quality of life for patients with TGA with ventricular septal defect, severe pulmonary hypertension, and poor prognosis.

    Full Text Available Traffic accident involving vehicles is one of the most serious problems in the transportation system nowadays. How to detect dangerous steering and then alarm drivers in real time is a problem. What is more, walking while using smartphones makes pedestrian more susceptible to various risks. Although dedicated short range communication (DSRC provides the way for safety communications, most of vehicles have not been deployed with DSRC components. Even worse, DSRC is not supported by the smartphones for vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P communication. In this paper, a smartphone-based framework named SenSafe is developed to improve the traffic safety. SenSafe is a framework which only utilizes the smartphone to sense the surrounding events and provides alerts to drivers. Smartphone-based driving behaviors detection mechanism is developed inside the framework to discover various steering behaviors. Besides, the Wi-Fi association and authentication overhead is reduced to broadcast the compressed sensing data using the Wi-Fi beacon to inform the drivers of the surroundings. Furthermore, a collision estimation algorithm is designed to issue appropriate warnings. Finally, an Android-based implementation of SenSafe framework has been achieved to demonstrate the application reliability in real environments.

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available Le traducteur cherche toujours à transmettre le mieux possible le sens d’un texte, en faisant des paraphrases et expliquant le sens. Il essaie de recréer le texte de départ dans une autre langue et de négocier avec l’auteur pour rester fidèle dans la transmission du sens car la traductibilité absolue est impossible. La traduction représente un domaine créatif particulier des procédures de langue et elle consiste à produire dans la langue d’arrivée l’équivalent naturel le plus proche du message de la langue de départ, d’abord quant à la signification puis quant au style. Umberto Eco en évoquant les grands problèmes de la traduction insiste sur l’importance de la signification avant toute chose : la forme, le style et l’expression. Ainsi dans l’activité traduisante, ce qui est privilégié, c’est la transmission du sens du texte source dans le texte cible. Dans cet article nous essaierons, en premier lieu, de situer la question de la négociation dans la traduction d’après les recherches d’Eco. Dans une deuxième partie, nous soulignerons les différentes procédures concernant l’interprétation et la négociation du sens afin d’expliciter les aspects fondamentaux de la problématique abordée pour démontrer que l’étude des processus de signification dans la traduction aide le traducteur à mettre au jour les différences et les convergences de chaque langue car la traduction et en même temps un dialogue entre la culture de l’auteur et celle du lecteur.

    Full Text Available In the present paper we address the criticism of the Hegelian doctrine of mediation (Vermittlung developed by Kierkegaard in the second volume of the book Enten-Eller (Either/Or. First we analyze the kind of opposition that Kierkegaard is not willing to relativize through the use of the dialectical mediation. For that purpose the contributions made by Shannon Nason to the understanding of relative opposites in Hegel and in Kierkegaard are applied. Next we indicate the place where the concept of mediation is located in Kierkegaard’s approach, namely, within the “sphere of thought”. Afterwards we approach Theodor W. Adorno’s criticism of the Kierkegaardian attempt to develop a “dialectics without mediation”. In the last section we approach both the criticism and the limitation of the concept of mediation made by Kierkegaard as well as the objections raised by Adorno against them. We also present some reflections on the criticism of mediation made by Kierkegaard and the young Marx as an expression of social critique which remains implicit in the former and that is explicit in the latter.

    Full Text Available The Sun Yat Sen shophouse in Penang is a small private Museum, which was converted from a shophouse or townhouse situated in the Armenian Street heritage area of George Town. The building is an example of embraces of the architectural heritage of George Town which is an extraordinarily beautiful example of Straits Settlements merchant's shophouse. Historically, it is associated with the global historical personality of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his revolutionary. This city was added to the UNESCO's world heritage list in 2008 to acknowledge its rich cultural heritage that constitutes of unique architectural and cultural townscape along the Straits of Melaka. This paper investigates the architectural plan of a shophouse and the values of cultural heritage buildings which eventually was converted into a Museum in George Town, Penang. Classified as an eclectic style shophouse, it is rich in design and art components featured in its architecture that are still sustaining until today. This building has an interesting mixture of architectural and cultural inspirations adapted from the Chinese origin, with the local Malay ethnicity and the European influences that colonised the region. The introduction of new non related architectural components into the southern Chinese (eclectic style style in shophouses in George Town has resulted in the disappearance of this unique style of architecture. This investigation employs a qualitative research approach by documenting evidence and understanding the architectural as well as cultural influences of the southern Chinese eclectic style by studying the Sun Yat Sen Museum as a case study. The findings of the research point towards an understanding of the architectural and cultural influences that govern the design of the shophouse and its architectural character. Key words: sustainable architectural values, George Town, eclectic style, shophouses

    Carvajal Muñoz, María Rosario

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available Social identity is plural, ambiguous, chosen, neither inherited nor merely discovered, and coexists harmoniously with other identities (Sen, 2001, p. 319. Identities related to capabilities, an aspect of freedom understood as the individual’s willingness to choose from among the substantive opportunities that exist (Sen, 2004, p. 520. At present, some identities are being constructed and reinforced, but others are being weakened, such as those relating to work. This text insists on the need to think about the connection between identity, freedom and responsibility. Identity without freedom is a chimera, but it is also impossible for identity and freedom to be present without responsibility, because identity is an option that is chosen, and as an action, needs both individual responsibility as well as responsibility to others. This enables the substantive opportunities that make it effective. This work is relevant because the existing literature does not stop to analyse these relationships explicitly.La identidad social es plural, no unívoca, elegida, no heredada ni meramente descubierta, y en convivencia armónica con otras identidades (Sen, 2001, p. 319. Las identidades remiten al término de capacidad, un aspecto de la libertad entendido como la disposición a elegir de los individuos a partir de la existencia de oportunidades sustantivas (Sen, 2004, p. 520. En la actualidad se construyen y refuerzan algunas identidades, pero también se debilitan otras, como las que afectan al ámbito laboral. Este texto insiste en la necesidad de reflexionar en la vinculación existente entre identidad, libertad y responsabilidad. La identidad sin libertad se hace quimera, pero la presencia de identidad y libertad sin responsabilidad se hace también imposible. Porque la identidad como opción que se elige, y que implica una acción, necesita tanto de la responsabilidad individual como de la responsabilidad para con otros posibilitando oportunidades

    Full Text Available Se4+ and N3− ions were used as codopants to enhance the photocatalytic activity of TiO2 under sunlight irradiation. The Se/N codoped photocatalysts were prepared through a simple wet-impregnation method followed by heat treatment using SeCl4 and urea as the dopant sources. The prepared photocatalysts were well characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS, UV-diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (UV-DRS, scanning electron microscopy (SEM and Raman spectroscopy. The codoped samples showed photoabsorption in the visible light range from 430 nm extending up to 580 nm. The photocatalytic activity of the Se/N codoped photocatalysts was evaluated by degradation of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP. The degradation of 4-NP was highly increased for the Se/N codoped samples compared to the undoped and single doped samples under both UV-A and sunlight irradiation. Aiming to determine the electronic structure and dopant locations, quantum chemical modeling of the undoped and Se/N codoped anatase clusters was performed using Density Functional Theory (DFT calculations with the hybrid functional (B3LYP and double-zeta (LanL2DZ basis set. The results revealed that Se/N codoping of TiO2 reduces the band gap due to mixing of N2p with O2p orbitals in the valence band and also introduces additional electronic states originating from Se3p orbitals in the band gap.

    Full Text Available Background The experience of ‘sensed presence’—a feeling or sense that another entity, individual or being is present despite no clear sensory or perceptual evidence—is known to occur in the general population, appears more frequently in religious or spiritual contexts, and seems to be prominent in certain psychiatric or neurological conditions and may reflect specific functions of social cognition or body-image representation systems in the brain. Previous research has relied on ad-hoc measures of the experience and no specific psychometric scale to measure the experience exists to date. Methods Based on phenomenological description in the literature, we created the 16-item Sensed Presence Questionnaire (SenPQ. We recruited participants from (i a general population sample, and; (ii a sample including specific selection for religious affiliation, to complete the SenPQ and additional measures of well-being, schizotypy, social anxiety, social imagery, and spiritual experience. We completed an analysis to test internal reliability, the ability of the SenPQ to distinguish between religious and non-religious participants, and whether the SenPQ was specifically related to positive schizotypical experiences and social imagery. A factor analysis was also conducted to examine underlying latent variables. Results The SenPQ was found to be reliable and valid, with religious participants significantly endorsing more items than non-religious participants, and the scale showing a selective relationship with construct relevant measures. Principal components analysis indicates two potential underlying factors interpreted as reflecting ‘benign’ and ‘malign’ sensed presence experiences. Discussion The SenPQ appears to be a reliable and valid measure of sensed presence experience although further validation in neurological and psychiatric conditions is warranted.

    The structure and morphology of BimSen epitaxial layers with compositions ranging from Bi2Se3 to the Bi1Se1 grown by molecular beam epitaxy with different flux compositions are investigated by transmission electron microscopy, high-resolution x-ray diffraction, and atomic force microscopy. It is shown that the lattice structure changes significantly as a function of the beam flux composition, i.e., Se/BiSe flux ratio that determines the stoichiometry of the layers. A perfect Bi2Se3 phase is formed only with a sufficiently high additional Se flux, whereas Bi1Se1 is obtained when only a BiSe compound source without additional Se is used. For intermediate values of the excess Se flux during growth, Bi2Se3 -δ layers are obtained with the Se deficit δ varying between 0 and 1. This Se deficit is accommodated by incorporation of additional Bi-Bi double layers into the Bi2Se3 structure that otherwise exclusively consists of Se-Bi-Se-Bi-Se quintuple layers. While a periodic insertion of such Bi double layers would result in the formation of natural BimSen superlattices, we find that this Bi double-layer insertion is rather stochastic with a high degree of disorder depending on the film composition. Therefore, the structure of such epilayers is better described by a one-dimensional paracrystal model, consisting of disordered sequences of quintuple and double layers rather than by strictly periodic natural superlattices. From detailed analysis of the x-ray diffraction data, we determine the dependence of the lattice parameters a and c and distances of the individual (0001) planes dj as a function of composition, evidencing that only the in-plane lattice parameter a shows a linear dependence on composition. The simulation of the diffraction curves with the random stacking paracrystal model yields an excellent agreement with the experimental data and it brings quantitative information on the randomness of the stacking sequence, which is compared to growth modeling using Monte

    Lan, X. G.; Pu, J.

    2018-06-01

    In this paper, the shadow and the corresponding naked singularity cast by a Kerr-Sen black hole are studied. It is found that the shadow of a rotating black hole would be a dark zone surrounded by a deformed circle, and the shadow is distorted more away from a circle when the black hole approaches the extremal case. Besides, it is shown that the mean radius of the shadow decreases and distortion parameter increases with the increasing of charge, respectively. However, the mean radius and the distortion parameter vary complicatedly with the change of spin parameter. In the beginning, both observables decrease rapidly with the increasing of specific angular momentum, nevertheless, they increase slightly in the latter part. These results show that there would be a significant effect of the spin on the shadows, which would be of great importance for probing the nature of the black hole.

  20. ICT in the Education of Students with SEN: Perceptions of Stakeholders

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ribeiro, Jaime; Moreira, António; Almeida, Ana Margarida

    Portugal is experiencing a technological reform in education. Technological refurbishing of schools and training of students and teachers is a reality on the rise, enhanced by the implementation of the Education Technological Plan, which also aims at computer skills certification, by 2010, of 90% of teachers. In a School that must be adjusted to all pupils, Special Educational Needs cannot be neglected and the nature and constitution of its computer resources should obviate the support of these students. ICT training is essential to benefit all students from its use. In the case of SEN, this need for training is of paramount importance to establish itself as a facilitator for these students. ICT Coordinators are the visible face of ICT implementation in schools; their functions include the management of the schools computer facilities and to zeal for the ICT training of fellow teachers.

    Abstract This study aims to investigate burnout and study engagement among medical students at Sun Yat-sen University, China. A cross-sectional survey was conducted among undergraduate medical students of Sun Yat-sen University, China. A total of 453 undergraduate students completed a self-administered, structured questionnaire between January and February, 2016. Burnout and study engagement were measured using the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) and the UTRECHT Work Engagement Scale-Students (UWES-S), respectively. Subjects who scored high in emotional exhaustion subscale, high in cynicism subscale, and low in professional efficacy subscale simultaneously were graded as having high risk of burnout. Independent sample t tests and chi-square tests were used to compare the differences in burnout and work engagement between genders, majors, and grade levels. The means (standard deviations) of the MBI-SS subscales were 3.42 (1.45) for emotional exhaustion, 2.34 (1.64) for cynicism, and 3.04 (1.30) for professional efficacy. The means (standard deviations) of the UWES-S subscales were 3.13 (1.49) for vigor, 3.44 (1.47) for dedication and 3.00 (1.51) for absorption. Approximately 1 in 11 students experienced a high risk of burnout. There were no statistically significant gender differences in burnout and study engagement. There were also no statistically significant differences in burnout and study engagement subscales according to student major. Students in higher grades displayed increased burnout risk, higher mean burnout subscale score of cynicism, lower mean burnout subscale score of professional efficacy, and decreased mean study engagement subscale scores of dedication and absorption. There were strong correlations within study engagement subscales. Chinese medical students in this university experience a high level of burnout. Students at higher-grade level experience more burnout and decreased study engagement compared with students in lower

    The market of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) consists of many manufacturers that produce their detectors in different technology. Hamamatsu (Japan) and SensL (Ireland) seems to be the most popular companies that produce large SiPM arrays. The aim of this work is characterization and comparison of 4×4 channel SiPM arrays produced by these two producers. Both of the tested SiPMs are made in through-silicon via (TSV) technology, consist of 16, 3×3 mm avalanche photodiode (APD) cells and have fill factor slightly above 60%. The largest difference is a single APD cell size and hence total number of APD cells (55,424 for Hamamatsu, 76,640 for SensL). In the case of SensL SiPM, its spectral response characteristics is shifted slightly toward shorter wavelengths with maximum at 420 nm (450 nm for Hamamatsu). The presented measurements cover selection of the SiPM optimum operating voltage (in respect to energy resolution), verification of the excess noise factor and check of the linearity characteristics. Moreover, the gamma spectrometry with LSO, BGO and CsI:Tl scintillators together with pulse characteristics for these crystals (rise time and fall time) is reported, as well as temperature dependence. The presented measurements show better performance of the SensL array comparing to the Hamamatsu detector.

  10. The role of the negative selection activities in securing the competence of an organization belonging to SEN units

    2008-01-01

    The transformation and the accommodation of National Power System (SEN) units to a new management system, own to a decentralized economy and having financial support from both native capital and foreign capital, in uncertain proportion at the moment and being in a continuous adjustment determined by the reasons and the motivations first of all political, generated conceptual changes in the so-called modern management theory. The accommodation of this theory to the concrete situation from SEN units imposed the concept of negative selection. It is a concept which represents author's desire to be created as an original contribution to the contemporary management theory. Unlike the selection at the hiring (or positive selection), the negative selection is achieved on personal already employed, in the conditions of activities of a decreased number of personnel and also of a redistribution of personnel on the other side. The negative selection, much more than the positive selection activity in this period in the SEN units (recording a drastic decrease from 90.000 employees counted by the energetic system at the end of 9th decade of the past century, to a little over 30.000 who at the moment work in the societies became independent), determines the specialist in human resources to ensure a judicious training and high competence. It concerns the knowledge of the standard systems and is also related to the method of knowledge and valuation of behavior of the organizational employees. This subject was developed on basis of the documentation and the analyses of documents but also on the basis of a set of studies and researches that were made during 1996-2006 in the SEN units. The work methods and models of negative selection used in the SEN units were analysed. This work concerns four companies which constitute currently the SEN nucleus at present at which the nuclear units with a particular status were added. One finds out that these methods and models of negative selection

    Med udgangspunkt i en skelnen mellem samarbejde som kooperation og kollaboration diskuteres i artiklen, hvilken form for samarbejde der egner sig bedst til læring og vidensdeling. Artiklen argumenterer for, at et kooperativt samarbejde indebærer en kognitivistisk opfattelse af læring som overførsel af viden, mens et kollaborativt samarbejde støtter en socialkonstruktivistisk opfattelse af læring som en fælles konstruktion af viden. Dernæst argumenterer artiklen for, at et kollaborativt samarbejde indebærer et højere lærings- og bevidsthedsniveau end kooperation. Endelig konkluderer artiklen, at samarbejdssystemer til støtte af kollaboration kræver et fokusskifte fra lagring og udveksling af dokumenter til støtte af de aktiviteter, hvori deltagerne i fællesskab konstruerer viden.

    Full Text Available Denne studien undersøker hva fire lærere på barnetrinnet gjør når elevene leser stille. Stillelesing er en vanlig aktivitet i norske klasserom, men kunnskapen om hva læreren gjør i denne tiden og hvordan hun veileder faglig, er begrenset. Studien ønsker å bidra til økt viten om dette. For å belyse lærerens rolle under stillelesing, kombinerer studien forskning på stillelesing fra amerikanske klasserom med forskning på læreres tilbakemeldinger når elevene leser. De fire lærerne arbeider på 3. trinn. De er observert i en uke hver, og materialet består av videoopptak fra stillelesingsstundene i den uka lærerne er observert. Videoopptakene analyseres i lys av de fem grunnpilarene for leseopplæring (National reading panel, 2000: fonologisk bevissthet, avkoding, ordforråd, flyt og leseforståelse. Studien viser at lærerne bruker tiden under stillelesing svært forskjellig. To av lærerne bruker det aller meste av tiden på å høre på elevene lese og veilede dem faglig. De to andre lærerne bruker den største delen av tiden på organisering eller annet forefallende arbeid der de ikke kommuniserer med elever, for eksempel å rydde i klasserommet. Gjennom næranalyser av lærernes faglige veiledning finner studien at lærerne veileder i alle de relevante grunnpilarene for leseopplæring, men i ulik grad. Lærerne varierer også i hva slags type tilbakemeldinger de gir, og de bruker både ‘endelige’ tilbakemeldinger og ‘støttende’ tilbakemeldinger. Lærerne varierer veiledningen i større grad enn tidligere klasseromsstudier tilsier. Det kan imidlertid se ut som at lærere ville tjene på en bevisstgjøring rundt stillelesing som undervisningstid, og om ulike typer tilbakemeldinger.Nøkkelord: stillelesing, muntlige tilbakemeldinger, leseopplæring, barnetrinnet, norskfagetAbstractThis study explores what four teachers in primary school do when the pupils read silently.

  18. Spatial Preference Modelling for equitable infrastructure provision: an application of Sen's Capability Approach

    2014-01-01

    To determine whether the inclusion of spatial neighbourhood comparison factors in Preference Modelling allows spatial decision support systems (SDSSs) to better address spatial equity, we introduce Spatial Preference Modelling (SPM). To evaluate the effectiveness of this model in addressing equity, various standardisation functions in both Non-Spatial Preference Modelling and SPM are compared. The evaluation involves applying the model to a resource location-allocation problem for transport infrastructure in the Special Province of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. We apply Amartya Sen's Capability Approach to define opportunity to mobility as a non-income indicator. Using the extended Moran's I interpretation for spatial equity, we evaluate the distribution output regarding, first, `the spatial distribution patterns of priority targeting for allocation' (SPT) and, second, `the effect of new distribution patterns after location-allocation' (ELA). The Moran's I index of the initial map and its comparison with six patterns for SPT as well as ELA consistently indicates that the SPM is more effective for addressing spatial equity. We conclude that the inclusion of spatial neighbourhood comparison factors in Preference Modelling improves the capability of SDSS to address spatial equity. This study thus proposes a new formal method for SDSS with specific attention on resource location-allocation to address spatial equity.

    In this decade the big data revolution has permeated in many fields, ranging from financial transactions, medical surveys and scientific endeavors, because of the big opportunities people see ahead. What to do with all this data remains an intriguing question. This is where computer scientists together with applied mathematicians have made some significant inroads in developing deep learning techniques for unraveling new relationships among the different variables by means of correlation analysis and data-assimilation methods. Deep-learning and big data taken together is a grand challenge task in High-performance computing which demand both ultrafast speed and large memory. The Tianhe-2 recently installed at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou is well positioned to take up this challenge because it is currently the world's fastest computer at 34 Petaflops. Each compute node of Tianhe-2 has two CPUs of Intel Xeon E5-2600 and three Xeon Phi accelerators. The Tianhe-2 has a very large fast memory RAM of 88 Gigabytes on each node. The system has a total memory of 1,375 Terabytes. All of these technical features will allow very high dimensional (more than 10) problem in deep learning to be explored carefully on the Tianhe-2. Problems in seismology which can be solved include three-dimensional seismic wave simulations of the whole Earth with a few km resolution and the recognition of new phases in seismic wave form from assemblage of large data sets.

    Full Text Available We derive the chlorophyll a concentration (Chla for three main phytoplankton functional types (PFTs – diatoms, coccolithophores and cyanobacteria – by combining satellite multispectral-based information, being of a high spatial and temporal resolution, with retrievals based on high resolution of PFT absorption properties derived from hyperspectral satellite measurements. The multispectral-based PFT Chla retrievals are based on a revised version of the empirical OC-PFT algorithm applied to the Ocean Color Climate Change Initiative (OC-CCI total Chla product. The PhytoDOAS analytical algorithm is used with some modifications to derive PFT Chla from SCIAMACHY hyperspectral measurements. To combine synergistically these two PFT products (OC-PFT and PhytoDOAS, an optimal interpolation is performed for each PFT in every OC-PFT sub-pixel within a PhytoDOAS pixel, given its Chla and its a priori error statistics. The synergistic product (SynSenPFT is presented for the period of August 2002 March 2012 and evaluated against PFT Chla data obtained from in situ marker pigment data and the NASA Ocean Biogeochemical Model simulations and satellite information on phytoplankton size. The most challenging aspects of the SynSenPFT algorithm implementation are discussed. Perspectives on SynSenPFT product improvements and prolongation of the time series over the next decades by adaptation to Sentinel multi- and hyperspectral instruments are highlighted.

This decline is most obvious during childhood and adolescence, and suggests the inability to increase stroke volume to the same extent as healthy peers during growth. Peak VO2 and peak oxygen pulse remain relatively stable during early adulthood. However, when RV contractility decreases, a faster decline in peak oxygen pulse is observed.

    Travel demand in Taiwan, particularly intercity trips, has changed in response to the significant increase in domestic trade and economic activities. Most of Taiwan's population lives and works along the western corridor because there is a mountain range running north-south along the eastern coast. The existing transportation system includes highways, freeways, rail and aviation. The average travel time from Taipei to Koahsiung by the Sun Yat-Sen freeway can vary from 4 to 8 hours or more on weekends and holidays. The current capacity of the freeway is insufficient to accommodate the increasing travel demand. Many traffic management strategies such as ramp metering control, no tolls, and no tolls for high occupancy vehicles (HOV) have been proposed to alleviate traffic congestion. The government plans to reallocate one inner lane as an HOV lane in each direction at all times. However, this would require a preference survey to assess the drivers' decisions to use these HOV lanes at all times on the highway. In this study, 2 types of latent attributes, perceptions and attitudes were defined to analyze their effects on travelers' choice of HOV lanes. Revealed preference and stated preference data were collected and considered simultaneously to fully utilize the strength of each type. Travelers' decisions were found to be a function of socio-economic attributes, travel characteristics and perceptions of alternatives. A model system was developed to comprise a discrete choice model and the latent variable model's structural and measurement equations. It was concluded that the preferred choice was for the HOV lane to be used toll-free, by vehicles with 4 or more passengers, in which the HOV lane is separated from regular lanes with a guardrail. 8 tabs.

    Full Text Available Aim: At the aim of this study was to determine the tetanus seroprevalence among pregnant women and childbearing aged woman living in the Ben-u Sen Health Center region that is in lower socio-economical level. Materials and methods: In this descriptive study, a team including the staff of health center and several volunteers visited the houses of pregnant women living in the health center coverage region and questionnaires were completed through face to face interviews. The study group included 214 pregnant women. Among them, serum samples of 197 subjects’ were studied for anti-toxic antibody for tetanus. For control, serum samples from 200 women living in the same health center region were collected. It was evaluated as partially protective, protective and longterm protection when tetanus antibody level was 0,01-<0,1 IU/ml, 0,1-<1.0 IU/ml and 1,0 IU/ml and over, respectively. Results: The mean age of the women was 26,4, mean marriage and first pregnancy ages were 17,9 and 18,9, respectively, and 40% of the subjects had never been examined or received follow up by a health center. It was revealed that 25.8% of the subjects were not protected and 74.2% had a full protection level of antibody. Within the control group, the same levels of antibodies were detected in 40.0% and 60.0% of the women, respectively. Conclusion: The study indicates that the immunity levels against tetanus are not satisfactory and every childbearing aged woman should be included in a vaccination program whenever they receive any examination in a health center.

    Nutrient profiling aims to classify or rank foods according to their nutritional composition to assist policies aimed at improving the nutritional quality of foods and diets. The present paper reviews a French approach of nutrient profiling by describing the SAIN,LIM system and its evolution from its early draft to the simplified nutrition labelling system (SENS) algorithm. Considered in 2010 by WHO as the 'French model' of nutrient profiling, SAIN,LIM classifies foods into four classes based on two scores: a nutrient density score (NDS) called SAIN and a score of nutrients to limit called LIM, and one threshold on each score. The system was first developed by the French Food Standard Agency in 2008 in response to the European regulation on nutrition and health claims (European Commission (EC) 1924/2006) to determine foods that may be eligible for bearing claims. Recently, the European regulation (EC 1169/2011) on the provision of food information to consumers allowed simplified nutrition labelling to facilitate consumer information and help them make fully informed choices. In that context, the SAIN,LIM was adapted to obtain the SENS algorithm, a system able to rank foods for simplified nutrition labelling. The implementation of the algorithm followed a step-by-step, systematic, transparent and logical process where shortcomings of the SAIN,LIM were addressed by integrating specificities of food categories in the SENS, reducing the number of nutrients, ordering the four classes and introducing European reference intakes. Through the French example, this review shows how an existing nutrient profiling system can be specifically adapted to support public health nutrition policies.

    Full Text Available The study aims at collective hunger in the vision of Amartya Sen as one of the impeding factors of Sustainable Human Development. In the economist's view, collective hunger goes beyond chronic hunger, involves a sudden outbreak of deprivation for a portion of the population. To eliminate hunger in the modern world, it is crucial to understand the cause of collective hunger in a broad way, and not just because of some mechanical imbalance between food and population. By illustrating the deprivation of liberty, child labor is included as one of the impediments to sustainable human development.

    The purpose of the present study was to non-invasively compare ascending aortic blood flow and cross-sectional area (CSA) variations vs time in Mustard or Senning repaired (MSR) patients against those of healthy volunteers at rest. Velocity-encoded MR imaging was performed in 10 male patients (age range 18-24 years, median age 20.5 years) late after a Mustard or Senning correction, and in 10 male healthy volunteers (age range 21-25 years, median age 22.5 years), at the upper part of the ascending aorta. Both aortic cross-sectional area (CSA) and blood-flow variations were recorded over a complete cardiac cycle, with a 30-ms time of resolution. The body-surface area (BSA), the mean CSA over the systolic phase, and the BSA-normalized systemic ventricle power and work were significantly lower in the patient series compared with those of the volunteer series. The BSA-normalized right ventricle (RV) power and work of MSR patients were equal to 87 and 83% on average of those of the left ventricle (LV) of healthy volunteers. We conclude that, at rest, the mechanical performance of the systemic RV in MSR patients is significantly lower than that of the LV in healthy volunteers. Furthermore, the significantly lower aortic CSA found in MSR patients than in healthy volunteers may reveal an increase in the vasomotor tone. (orig.)

  19. Interconnection of the Keys north of the country with the National Electro energetic System (SEN) through a submarine cable

    Most of the keys of the north of the country have a high potential for tourism Sun and beach, which is why each has an associated infrastructure that allows hotels have the necessary quality standards. Within this infrastructure the continuous electrical service must have each hotel to meet the needs of tourists stands. Today the keys are isolated from the SEN and electrical service is supplied by generators. These groups feed on fuel and diesel, and generate polluting gases near where the major hotel groups are. The problems in transporting fuel and pollution they generate have led to begin to analyze different ways of providing electric service stably in the keys. One possible option to address the problems generated by power generators in an isolated system is to interconnect the cay with SEN. This connection can be made in three ways; by airlines, underground cables or submarine cables. The airlines in the tourist areas are discarded because they affect the visuality this is why variants of underground cables or submarines are almost always handled. The proposal is to interconnect the keys with submarine cable where current conditions do not allow the use of underground cables. This interconnection can meet the demand of the keys stably and more reliably than current conditions. In addition to cases where there is a tourism growth should be no more generators only have a cable with the ability to transfer all the power needed. (author)

    The ability to continuously monitor respiration rates of patients in homecare or in clinics is an important goal. Past research showed that monitoring patient breathing can lower the associated mortality rates for long-term bedridden patients. Nowadays, in-bed sensors consisting of pressure sensitive arrays are unobtrusive and are suitable for deployment in a wide range of settings. Such systems aim to extract respiratory signals from time-series pressure sequences. However, variance of movements, such as unpredictable extremities activities, affect the quality of the extracted respiratory signals. BreathSens, a high-density pressure sensing system made of e-Textile, profiles the underbody pressure distribution and localizes torso area based on the high-resolution pressure images. With a robust bodyparts localization algorithm, respiratory signals extracted from the localized torso area are insensitive to arbitrary extremities movements. In a study of 12 subjects, BreathSens demonstrated its respiratory monitoring capability with variations of sleep postures, locations, and commonly tilted clinical bed conditions.

    A new gamma-camera architecture named HiSens is presented and evaluated. It consists of a parallel hole collimator, a pixelated CdZnTe (CZT) detector associated with specific electronics for 3D localization and dedicated reconstruction algorithms. To gain in efficiency, a high aperture collimator is used. The spatial resolution is preserved thanks to accurate 3D localization of the interactions inside the detector based on a fine sampling of the CZT detector and on the depth of interaction information. The performance of this architecture is characterized using Monte Carlo simulations in both planar and tomographic modes. Detective quantum efficiency (DQE) computations are then used to optimize the collimator aperture. In planar mode, the simulations show that the fine CZT detector pixelization increases the system sensitivity by 2 compared to a standard Anger camera without loss in spatial resolution. These results are then validated against experimental data. In SPECT, Monte Carlo simulations confirm the merits of the HiSens architecture observed in planar imaging.

    Created by interlocking economies, a global language, the informatics revolution and rapid travel, globalization has penetrated all aspects of human life including science, environment, public health and medicine. Physicians are now members of a global community. The global physician should possess universal core essential competences required for medical practice throughout the world. The Institute for International Medical Education (IIME), created by the China Medical Board (CMB) of New York, has developed the " global minimal essential requirements" (GMER) that define the knowledge, skills, professional behavior and ethics that all physicians must have regardless of where they received their general medical education and training. The IIME initiated a pilot project in China in October, 2003, to evaluate the graduates of the 7- or 8-year track program of eight leading medical schools, including Medical School of Sun Yat-sen University. The results of GMER evaluation indicated strengths and areas for improvement of our school in relation to international standards, which greatly re-invigorate our enthusiasm on medical curriculum reform on the new 8-year track program in Medical School of Sun Yat-sen University. The modifications of our medical curriculum for the new 8-year track program based on the results of GMER evaluation are discussed in this paper.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI are a frequent reason for consultation of women in primary health care. To avoid therapy failure and development of resistances, the choice of an antibiotic should be based on the knowledge of recent local resistance data but these data are scarce for the Austrian primary health care sector. Within the context of the ECO·SENS II study it was the aim to obtain appropriate and relevant local resistance data and describe the changes in the resistance pattern in comparison to the ECO·SENS study. Methods 23 GPs from different parts of Austria participated in the study between July 2007 and November 2008. According to the defined inclusion- and exclusion criteria female patients with symptoms of an uncomplicated UTI were included and a midstream urine sample was collected. In case of significant bacteriuria susceptibility testing of E. coli against 14 antibiotics was performed. Descriptive statistical methods were used. Results In 313 patients included in the study, a total of 147 E. coli isolates (47% were detected and tested. The resistance rates were in %: Mecillinam (0.0, nitrofurantoin (0.7, fosfomycin trometamol (0.7, gentamycin (1.4, cefotaxime (2.7, ceftazidime (2.7, Cephadroxil (4.1 and ciprofloxacin (4.1. Higher resistance rates were found in amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (8.9, nalidixic acid (9.6, trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole (14.4, trimethoprim (15.8, sulphamethoxazole (21.2 and ampicillin (28.8. Additionally, the comparison of these results with the results of the ECO·SENS study demonstrated an increase in resistance rates of ampicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, nalidixic acid and ciprofloxacin. Conclusions The resistance data for E. coli in uncomplicated UTIs in women gained by this study are the most recent data for this disease in Austria at the moment. The increased resistance rates of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, ciprofloxacin and nalidixic acid should be

    Silicon photomultipliers from SensL are designed for high performance, uniformity and low cost. They demonstrate peak photon detection efficiency of 41% at 420 nm, which is matched to the output spectrum of cerium doped lutetium orthosilicate. Coincidence resolving time of less than 220 ps is demonstrated. New process improvements have lead to the development of C-Series SiPM which reduces the dark noise by over an order of magnitude. In this paper we will show characterization test results which include photon detection efficiency, dark count rate, crosstalk probability, afterpulse probability and coincidence resolving time comparing B-Series to the newest pre-production C-Series. Additionally we will discuss the effect of silicon photomultiplier microcell size on coincidence resolving time allowing the optimal microcell size choice to be made for time of flight positron emission tomography systems.

    Full Text Available ResumoNo estudo das intervenções de desenvolvimento, Amartya Sen traz uma contribuição relevante, ao analisar que elas são construídas, de acordo com referenciais filosóficos e políticos, quais sejam ligados ao Utilitarismo, ao Libertarismo ou a Geração de Liberdades Substantivas. Segundo Sen, o Utilitarismo apresenta sua proposta de intervenção a partir da utilidade de ações e de regras propostas, sendo o foco principal a inovação; quanto ao Libertarismo, ele admite a igualdade formal de oportunidades, sendo que, para a sua concretização, há necessidade de se estabelecer o acesso dos cidadãos aos setores básicos de saúde, educação, infra-estrutura, saneamento, dentre outros; já a referência de Geração de Liberdades Substantivas evidencia que, para fins de intervenção, o espaço apropriado não seria essencialmente o das utilidades, nem tampouco o da provisão de bens primários, mas no sentido de gerar a capacidade e a oportunidade real para os indivíduos proverem seus objetivos após o término da intervenção. Assim, delimita-se uma análise para a tradução dos fundamentos das intervenções em termos operacionais, no que diz respeito, especificamente, aos objetivos, metas e estratégias. Foram estudadas cento e vinte e seis intervenções de desenvolvimento rural, dentre políticas, programas e projetos, com foco na melhoria das condições de vida das populações e na conservação dos recursos naturais, evidenciando o Estado do Pará como locus de estudo entre 1996-2005. Esta análise demonstra que, embora quase todas as intervenções tenham sido delineadas sob o pressuposto de desenvolvimento, a maior parte delas não apresenta referencial adequado para sua efetividade. ABSTRACT In the study of the development interventions, Amartya Sen brings a relevant contribution, when analyzing that they are built, in agreement with references linked to the Utilitarianism, to Formal Freedoms or, the Generation of

    This study aims to investigate burnout and study engagement among medical students at Sun Yat-sen University, China.A cross-sectional survey was conducted among undergraduate medical students of Sun Yat-sen University, China. A total of 453 undergraduate students completed a self-administered, structured questionnaire between January and February, 2016. Burnout and study engagement were measured using the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) and the UTRECHT Work Engagement Scale-Students (UWES-S), respectively. Subjects who scored high in emotional exhaustion subscale, high in cynicism subscale, and low in professional efficacy subscale simultaneously were graded as having high risk of burnout. Independent sample t tests and chi-square tests were used to compare the differences in burnout and work engagement between genders, majors, and grade levels.The means (standard deviations) of the MBI-SS subscales were 3.42 (1.45) for emotional exhaustion, 2.34 (1.64) for cynicism, and 3.04 (1.30) for professional efficacy. The means (standard deviations) of the UWES-S subscales were 3.13 (1.49) for vigor, 3.44 (1.47) for dedication and 3.00 (1.51) for absorption. Approximately 1 in 11 students experienced a high risk of burnout. There were no statistically significant gender differences in burnout and study engagement. There were also no statistically significant differences in burnout and study engagement subscales according to student major. Students in higher grades displayed increased burnout risk, higher mean burnout subscale score of cynicism, lower mean burnout subscale score of professional efficacy, and decreased mean study engagement subscale scores of dedication and absorption. There were strong correlations within study engagement subscales.Chinese medical students in this university experience a high level of burnout. Students at higher-grade level experience more burnout and decreased study engagement compared with students in lower level.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo trata do deslocamento apontado por Merleau-Ponty do campo da razão para os caminhos do sensível através do olhar míope do personagem Minguilim, da novela “Campo Geral”, de João Guimarães Rosa. Usando como fio condutor a deficiência visual da personagem principal vamos acompanhá-lo na transição do mundo infantil para o mundo adulto. Nesse percurso do microsaber (olhar das miudezas para o macrosaber (o olhar turvo, Minguilim encontra passagens através de adultos como o alegre seu Aristeu e a contadora de histórias Siàrlinda ou do discurso do irmão Dito, que consegue conversar com os mais velhos. Em oposição ao “falar”, Minguilim desenvolve o “olhar” numa percepção do mundo que passa pela observação do detalhe. Sua mirada, que entrega ao leitor uma lupa, limita a sua visão para fora, mas a expande para dentro retornando à camada do sensível e encontrando o poder poético. Há duas travessias no texto: o luto pela perda do irmão Dito e a descoberta da beleza de Mutum através do uso dos óculos, emprestados por um estranho. É por meio de dicotomias básicas entre as cores e o negro, o perto e o longe, o visto e o não visto, a fé e o luto, o lúdico e o real que o menino realiza os seus primeiros questionamentos e a sua entrada ao universo dos adultos. Miguilim vai encontrar as respostas ao enfrentar o pai e a doença e pelo alargamento da visão e da linguagem proposto com maestria por Guimarães Rosa.

    Biondo, Francesco

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I try to revise Sen’s thesis about the «transcendental» nature of Rawls’ theory of justice. According to Sen transcendental theories of justice are unnecessary. What we aim at is to justify a series of comparative judgements about two or more states of affairs.We do not strive, unlike Rawls, to form a complete system of moral principles that backs an «ideal just society». I try to show that Sen’s «comparative» account is weak. First of all, Sen does not offer a fair interpretation of Rawls’ theory. In particular, he is wrong when he depicts Rawls’ justice as fairness as a complete and transcendental moral doctrine. Secondly, Sen overlooks the fact that in order to justify comparative evaluations of states of affairs we must assume as valid a particular moral doctrine. Finally I try to solve the problem about the contrast between transcendental and comparative account by offering a transcendental outlook to questions of justice that is, at the same time, pluralist and incomplete.

    En este trabajo intento exponer las tesis de Sen sobre las características que demandamos a una teoría satisfactoria de la justicia, y sus críticas al modelo «trascendental» de teoría, que según él es lo que Rawls persigue. Según Sen, este modelo es inaceptable por ser inalcanzable e innecesario; lo que en nuestra práctica argumentativa intentamos lograr son juicios comparativos entre situaciones reales, y no sistemas completos de proposiciones acerca de ideales de la sociedad justa. Intentaré argumentar que el enfoque metaético de Sen es débil por dos razones: no ofrece una reconstrucción adecuada de la teoría de Rawls, equivocándose sobre su carácter «completo», y no explica de qué manera los juicios comparativos de valor entre dos situaciones sociales no sean el resultado de una teoría «trascendental» de la justicia. Me propongo, entonces, solucionar el problema, presentando una mirada trascendental de las

    The article sets out by investigating how depression is represented in Lars von Trier´s disaster movie Melancholia with the specific intent to detach mental illness from classic, somewhat romantic notions of metaphoric and epistemological connections between psychopathology and deeper “truths......” about the world. Employing what one could call a symptomatological view on the depression of the main protagonist Justine, the article concludes that her depression should be seen as a temporal disorder in the sense that she lacks the ability to project and plan a future. From here, the article turns...... to Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick´s concept of a “reparative praxis” as a possible ethico-practical way out of the depressive situation, arguing that such a reparative praxis is exactly what ends up pulling Justine out of her depression and enabling her to act. In a concluding step, the article relates depression...

  1. Science, Technology and Innovation as Social Goods for Development: Rethinking Research Capacity Building from Sen's Capabilities Approach.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mormina, Maru

    2018-03-01

    Science and technology are key to economic and social development, yet the capacity for scientific innovation remains globally unequally distributed. Although a priority for development cooperation, building or developing research capacity is often reduced in practice to promoting knowledge transfers, for example through North-South partnerships. Research capacity building/development tends to focus on developing scientists' technical competencies through training, without parallel investments to develop and sustain the socioeconomic and political structures that facilitate knowledge creation. This, the paper argues, significantly contributes to the scientific divide between developed and developing countries more than any skills shortage. Using Charles Taylor's concept of irreducibly social goods, the paper extends Sen's Capabilities Approach beyond its traditional focus on individual entitlements to present a view of scientific knowledge as a social good and the capability to produce it as a social capability. Expanding this capability requires going beyond current fragmented approaches to research capacity building to holistically strengthen the different social, political and economic structures that make up a nation's innovation system. This has implications for the interpretation of human rights instruments beyond their current focus on access to knowledge and for focusing science policy and global research partnerships to design approaches to capacity building/development beyond individual training/skills building.

    1985-01-01

    To determine the SENS, SPEC and PV of CCK chole-scintigraphy (C) in the detection of acalculous biliary disease (ABD), the authors retrospectively evaluated the gallbladder ejection fraction response (GBEFR) to CCK in 99 post-cholecystectomy (Cx) patients (pts.) with pathologically proven ABD. The path criteria for chronic acalculous cholecystitis and/or the cystic duct syndrome included hypertrophy of the gallbladder wall (>1.5-2mm), diffuse hypertrophy of the muscularis propria with or without a concomitant mononuclear infiltration, serosal thickening, Aschoff-Rokitansky sinuses, foamy macrophages filling the tips of mucosal folds, yellow papillary nodule(s), fibrosis of the cystic duct, kinking or adhesions of the cystic duct seen at operation. The GBEFR to CCK indicative of ABD was defined as one in which the GBEFR was <35%. CCK C was performed after an overnight fast. Each pt. received 5 mCi of technetium-99m Hepatolite. When the GB maximally filled, .02 μg/kg CCK was administered (1-3 min.) I.V. Background corrected GBEFs were determined q.5 min.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to analyze, from a sociological viewpoint, the theoretical and methodological challenges posed by Amartya Sen in his textbook Development as Freedom. The concept of freedom, according with Sen, includes what he calls the «opportunity aspect» and the «process aspect» of freedom. My argument is that the human development paradigm has been more focused in exploring the former than the latter, ignoring the relational dimension of human agency. In order to extend the reach of the capability approach in this direction, I propose to accept three complementary premises: 1 that freedom is a social relationship; 2 that the fights for equality are always constrained by power relations; 3 that the agents in these scenarios are collective actors, rather than individuals.

    Full Text Available We propose a comprehensive sensing platform called SenStick, which is composed of hardware (ultra tiny all-in-one sensor board, software (iOS, Android, and PC, and 3D case data. The platform aims to allow all the researchers to start IoT research, such as activity recognition and context estimation, easily and efficiently. The most important contribution is the hardware that we have designed. Various sensors often used for research are embedded in an ultra tiny board with the size of 50 mm (W × 10 mm (H × 5 mm (D and weight around 3 g including a battery. Concretely, the following sensors are embedded on this board: acceleration, gyro, magnetic, light, UV, temperature, humidity, and pressure. In addition, this board has BLE (Bluetooth low energy connectivity and capability of a rechargeable battery. By using 110 mAh battery, it can run more than 15 hours. The most different point from other similar boards is that our board has a large flash memory for logging all the data without a smartphone. By using SenStick, all the users can collect various data easily and focus on IoT data analytics. In this paper, we introduce SenStick platform and some case studies. Through the user study, we confirmed the usefulness of our proposed platform.

  5. Control of CydB and GltA1 expression by the SenX3 RegX3 two component regulatory system of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gretta Roberts

    Full Text Available Two component regulatory systems are used widely by bacteria to coordinate changes in global gene expression profiles in response to environmental signals. The SenX3-RegX3 two component system of Mycobacterium tuberculosis has previously been shown to play a role in virulence and phosphate-responsive control of gene expression. We demonstrate that expression of SenX3-RegX3 is controlled in response to growth conditions, although the absolute changes are small. Global gene expression profiling of a RegX3 deletion strain and wild-type strain in different culture conditions (static, microaerobic, anaerobic, as well as in an over-expressing strain identified a number of genes with changed expression patterns. Among those were genes previously identified as differentially regulated in aerobic culture, including ald (encoding alanine dehydrogenase cyd,encoding a subunit of the cytochrome D ubiquinol oxidase, and gltA1, encoding a citrate synthase. Promoter activity in the upstream regions of both cydB and gltA1 was altered in the RegX3 deletion strain. DNA-binding assays confirmed that RegX3 binds to the promoter regions of ald, cydB and gltA1 in a phosphorylation-dependent manner. Taken together these data suggest a direct role for the SenX-RegX3 system in modulating expression of aerobic respiration, in addition to its role during phosphate limitation.

  14. A lack of vision: evidence for poor communication of visual problems and support needs in education statements/plans for children with SEN.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Little, J-A; Saunders, K J

    2015-02-01

    Visual dysfunction is more common in children with neurological impairments and previous studies have recommended such children receive visual and refractive assessment. In the UK, children with neurological impairment often have educational statementing for Special Educational Needs (SEN) and the statement should detail all health care and support needs to ensure the child's needs are met during school life. This study examined the representation of visual information in statements of SEN and compared this to orthoptic visual information from school visual assessments for children in a special school in Northern Ireland, UK. The parents of 115 school children in a special school were informed about the study via written information. Participation involved parents permitting the researchers to access their child's SEN educational statement and orthoptic clinical records. Statement information was accessed for 28 participants aged between four and 19 years; 25 contained visual information. Two participants were identified in their statements as having a certification of visual impairment. An additional 10 children had visual acuity ≥ 0.3 logMAR. This visual deficit was not reported in statements in eight out of these 12 cases (67%). 11 participants had significant refractive error and wore spectacles, but only five (45%) had this requirement recorded in their statement. Overall, 10 participants (55%) had either reduced visual acuity or significant refractive error which was not recorded in their statement. Despite additional visual needs being common, and described in clinical records, the majority of those with reduced vision and/or spectacle requirements did not have this information included in their statement. If visual limitations are not recognized by educational services, the child's needs may not be met during school life. More comprehensive eye care services, embedded with stakeholder communication and links to education are necessary to improve

  15. Molecular and epidemiological characterization of staphylococcal foodborne outbreak of Staphylococcus aureus harboring seg, sei, sem, sen, seo, and selu genes without production of classical enterotoxins.

    Staphylococcal food poisoning is the result of consumption of food contaminated with staphylococcal enterotoxins (SEs) produced by Staphylococcus aureus. To date, 23 SEs and SE-like enterotoxins (SEls) have been described in the literature. They are divided into classical SEs (SEA-SEE) and new SE/SEls (SEG-SElX). Some have proved to be foodborne-inducible, but others remain unidentified. In May 2016, at an elderly group home in Osaka city, Japan, an outbreak from foodborne pathogens occurred among lunch party participants. Within 2h 30min to 4h 40min, 15 of 53 participants presented gastrointestinal symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea. A subsequent laboratory investigation detected S. aureus from most stool samples from patients, several left-over food items, a kitchen swab, and hand swabs from two food handlers. Classical SEs was not detected from S. aureus isolates or left-over food items. From examination for the presence of SE/SEl genes of 20 kinds by PCR, seg, sei, sem, sen, seo, and selu genes were detected in almost all isolates. These isolates exhibited identical or closely related types by coagulase type (type VII), Sma I digested pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analysis and multi-locus sequence typing (MLST-CC45 lineage). These results suggest that the foodborne outbreak was caused by S. aureus harboring seg, sei, sem, sen, seo, and selu genes without production of classical SEs. Additionally, some S. aureus isolates from human nasal swabs and healthy human feces harboring seg, sei, sem, sen, seo, and selu genes without production of classical SEs were classified into CC45 lineage using MLST. These findings suggest new SE/SEls as a potential cause of foodborne outbreaks. Copyright © 2017. Published by Elsevier B.V.

    Full Text Available Nucleic acid amplification tests are increasingly used for the rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis. We undertook a comparative study of the efficiency and diagnostic yield of a real-time PCR senX3-regX3 based assay versus the classical IS6110 target and the new commercial methods.This single-blind prospective comparative study included 145 consecutive samples: 76 from patients with culture-confirmed tuberculosis (86.8% pulmonary and 13.2% extrapulmonary tuberculosis: 48.7% smear-positive and 51.3% smear-negative and 69 control samples (24 from patients diagnosed with non-tuberculous mycobacteria infections and 45 from patients with suspected tuberculosis which was eventually ruled out. All samples were tested by two CE-marked assays (Xpert®MTB/RIF and AnyplexTM plus MTB/NTM and two in-house assays targeting senX3-regX3 and the IS6110 gene.The detection limit ranged from 1.00E+01 fg for Anyplex, senX3-regX3 and IS6110 to 1.00E+04 fg for Xpert. All three Xpert, senX3-regX3 and IS6110 assays detected all 37 smear-positive cases. Conversely, Anyplex was positive in 34 (91.9% smear-positive cases. In patients with smear-negative tuberculosis, differences were observed between the assays; Xpert detected 22 (56.41% of the 39 smear-negative samples, Anyplex 24 (61.53%, senX3-regX3 28 (71.79% and IS6110 35 (89.74%. Xpert and senX3-regX3 were negative in all control samples; however, the false positive rate was 8.7% and 13% for Anyplex and IS6110, respectively. The overall sensitivity was 77.6%, 85.7%, 77.3% and 94.7% and the specificity was 100%, 100%, 90.8% and 87.0% for the Xpert, senX3-regX3, Anyplex and IS6110 assays, respectively.Real-time PCR assays targeting IS6110 lack the desired specificity. The Xpert MTB/RIF and in-house senX3-regX3 assays are both sensitive and specific for the detection of MTBC in both pulmonary and extrapulmonary samples. Therefore, the real time PCR senX3-regX3 based assay could be a useful and complementary tool in the

    Crack growth direction has been studied in many ways. Particularly Sih's strain energy theory predicts that a fracture under a three-dimensional state of stress spreads in direction of the minimum strain energy density. In this work a study for angle of fracture growth was made, considering a biaxial stress state at the crack tip on SEN specimens. The stress state applied on a tension-compression SEN specimen is biaxial one on crack tip, as it can observed in figure 1. A solution method proposed to obtain a mathematical model considering genetic algorithms, which have demonstrated great capacity for the solution of many engineering problems. From the model given by Sih one can deduce the density of strain energy stored for unit of volume at the crack tip as dW = [1/2E({sigma}{sup 2}{sub x} + {sigma}{sup 2}{sub y}) - {nu}/E({sigma}{sub x}{sigma}{sub y})]dV (1). From equation (1) a mathematical deduction to solve in terms of {theta} of this case was developed employing Genetic Algorithms, where {theta} is a crack propagation direction in plane x-y. Steel and aluminium mechanical properties to modelled specimens were employed, because they are two of materials but used in engineering design. Obtained results show stable zones of fracture propagation but only in a range of applied loading.

Au long de son commentaire sur Hobbes, Schmitt aboutit toutefois à un résultat inattendu. Naguère loué comme « le cas classique de la pensée décisionniste », Hobbes s’est métamorphosé à son insu en « ancêtre spirituel » de l’État législateur et libéral-constitutionnel. Schmitt a trouvé chez son allié le plus précieux les germes d’une pensée qu’il n’a cessé d’éreinter sous toutes ses formes, qu’on la décline dans sa version techniciste, positiviste, constitutionnaliste bourgeoise et libérale, individualiste ou pluraliste. C’est en ce sens que le Der Leviathan résume à bien des égards le sens et l’échec du décisionnisme politique.

    In Mustard/Senning-repaired (MSR) patients, the right and left ventricles (RV, LV) act as the systemic and pulmonary ventricle, respectively. The purpose of the study was to compare non-invasively, at rest, pulmonary ventricle systolic function and hemodynamics in MSR patients with those of healthy volunteers. Velocity-encoded MR imaging was performed at the level of the main pulmonary artery (MPA) in ten male patients late after a Mustard/Senning correction performed early in infancy and in ten male volunteers. Both blood flow and MPA cross-sectional area variations were recorded over a complete cardiac cycle. MPA distensibility, body surface area (BSA)-normalized pulmonary ventricle systolic power and work were significantly lower in the MSR patients compared to volunteers. In particular, BSA-normalized LV systolic power and work in MSR patients were equal to 82 and 77% on average of those of the RV in volunteers (0.32 vs. 0.39 W/m 2 and 0.10 vs. 0.13 J/m 2 ), respectively. We conclude that in MSR patients at rest two unrelated findings were observed: (1) a reduced MPA distensibility and (2) a significantly lower systolic mechanical performance of the pulmonary LV compared to that of the RV in healthy volunteers. The latter quantification indirectly confirms the lowest systemic RV systolic mechanical performance previously published. (orig.)

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é promover uma discussão sobre psicologia e teatro, buscando compreender algumas relações e efeitos possíveis quando ambos se aproximam e se voltam para a produção de subjetividade nas comunidades populares. Um conceito central é o de partilha do sensível, formulado por Jacques Rancière. O texto discute as formas que a partilha do sensível configura tanto no teatro quanto na psicologia comunitária quando estes se propõem a ser vetores da transformação social, e aponta entraves quando estes se limitam à representação convencional dos conflitos sociais. Outro aspecto considerado é a necessidade de dar mais relevo aos processos de produção de desejo na comunidade.This essay aims to discuss psychology and theater, their relations and possible effects when they are both involved with the production of subjectivity in popular communities. One main concept is the distribution of the sensible, created by Jacques Rancière. The text analyses the distribution of the sensible performed by the theater and by community psychology when they search social transformation. This study's conclusions indicate that the persistence of the conventional representation of the social conflicts constitutes an obstacle shared by psychology and theater, and point to the necessity of giving more relevance to the production of desire in the community.

    Full Text Available The AHS (Airborne Hyperspectral Scanner instrument has 80 spectral bands covering the visible and near infrared (VNIR, short wave infrared (SWIR, mid infrared (MIR and thermal infrared (TIR spectral range. The instrument is operated by Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aerospacial (INTA, and it has been involved in several field campaigns since 2004.

    This paper presents an overview of the work performed with the AHS thermal imagery provided in the framework of the SPARC and SEN2FLEX campaigns, carried out respectively in 2004 and 2005 over an agricultural area in Spain. The data collected in both campaigns allowed for the first time the development and testing of algorithms for land surface temperature and emissivity retrieval as well as the estimation of evapotranspiration from AHS data. Errors were found to be around 1.5 K for land surface temperature and 1 mm/day for evapotranspiration.

    Full Text Available Poverty continues to present an enormous challenge to the well-being of humanity. Different frameworks on poverty tend to identify different persons as poor, impacting on efforts to fight poverty. The church as a role player in the public domain needs a framework that can assist it in its task of working for salvation and liberation in the face of overwhelming poverty. Acombined framework, from Amartya Sen’s entitlement approach and capability approach, is amalgamated and suggested as an integrated framework that could act as a lens or a viewpoint from which the church could venture to conceptualise, quantify and respond to instances of poverty.   Keywords: Poverty; Church; Well-being; Amartya Sen; Entitlement Approach; Capability Approach

Apresentam o caso de um paciente com 12 anos de idade, que havia sido submetido a operação de Senning associada a fechamento de comunicação interventricular e alivio de estenose pulmonar há 8 anos. A operação de Senning foi desfeita, restabelecendo-se a concordância atrioventricular, o remendo que fechava a comunicação interventricular foi ressecado, conectando-se a aorta com o ventrículo esquerdo. A artéria pulmonar foi seccionada transversalmente, próximo ao plano valvar. O coto proximal foi suturado e o distai, conectado ao ventrículo direito através de tubo valvulado de pericárdio bovino. A evolução foi satisfatória, revertendo-se a situação do paciente do grupo funcional IV para grupo I/II.A new proposal for the treatment of right ventricular dysfunction in late postoperative period of patients submitted to Senning operation is presented. The technique could be used in cases originally with transposition of the great arteries associated with pulmonary stenosis and a large VSD. A 12-year-old patient, who had been submitted, 8 years before, to an atrial inversion associated with closure of a large VSD and relieve of a pulmonary stonosis was submitted to this new operation. Senning operation was undone thus reestablishing atrio-ventricular concordance; the patch used for closure of VSD was removed, and the aorta was connected to the left-ventricle. Pulmonary artery was cut transversally, adjacent to the valvar horizontal plane. The proximal extremity was sutured and the distal was connected to the right ventricle through a valvar tube graft of bovine pericardium. The clinical course was uneventful and the patient improved from functional class IV to I/II.

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se aborda la crítica a la doctrina hegeliana de la mediación (Vermittlung que Kierkegaard desarrolla en el segundo volumen de Enten-Eller (O lo uno o lo otro. El trabajo comienza con un análisis del tipo de oposición que Kierkegaard no está dispuesto a relativizar por vía del recurso a la mediación dialéctica. Para ello se aplican los aportes realizados por Shannon Nason para la comprensión de los opuestos relativos en Hegel y en Kierkegaard. Luego se señala el lugar que le confiere este último filósofo al concepto de mediación en su posición propia, a saber, dentro de la “esfera del pensamiento”. Posteriormente se aborda la crítica de Theodor W. Adorno al intento kierkegaardiano de desarrollar una “dialéctica sin mediación”. En el último apartado se evalúa, en conjunto, la crítica y limitación del concepto de mediación realizadas por Kierkegaard, así como las objeciones elevadas por Adorno contra las mismas. Asimismo, se presentan algunas reflexiones sobre la crítica de la mediación por parte de Kierkegaard y del joven Marx como expresión de una crítica social que permanece implícita en el primero y se muestra explícitamente en el segundo.

    The literature in science education highlights the potentially significant role of outside-school factors such as parents, cultural contexts and role models in students' formation of science attitudes and aspirations, and their attainment in science classes. In this paper, building on and linking Bourdieu's key concepts of habitus, cultural and social capital, and field with Sen's capability approach, we develop a model of students' science-related capability development. Our model proposes that the role of outside-school factors is twofold, first, in providing an initial set of science-related resources (i.e. habitus, cultural and social capital), and then in conversion of these resources to science-related capabilities. The model also highlights the distinction between science-related functionings (outcomes achieved by individuals) and science-related capabilities (ability to achieve desired functionings), and argues that it is necessary to consider science-related capability development in evaluating the effectiveness of science education. We then test our theoretical model with an account of three Turkish immigrant students' science-related capabilities and the role of outside-school factors in forming and extending these capabilities. We use student and parent interviews, student questionnaires and in-class observations to provide an analysis of how outside-school factors influence these students' attitudes, aspirations and attainment in science.

    Structural studies on the polymorphs of the organoselenium antioxidant ebselen and its derivative show the potential of organic selenium to form unusually short Se⋅⋅⋅O chalcogen bonds that lead to conserved supramolecular recognition units. Se⋅⋅⋅O interactions observed in these polymorphs are the shortest such chalcogen bonds known for organoselenium compounds. The FTIR spectral evolution characteristics of this interaction from solution state to solid crystalline state further validates the robustness of this class of supramolecular recognition units. The strength and electronic nature of the Se⋅⋅⋅O chalcogen bonds were explored using high-resolution X-ray charge density analysis and atons-in-molecules (AIM) theoretical analysis. A charge density study unravels the strong electrostatic nature of Se⋅⋅⋅O chalcogen bonding and soft-metal-like behavior of organoselenium. An analysis of the charge density around Se-N and Se-C covalent bonds in conjunction with the Se⋅⋅⋅O chalcogen bonding modes in ebselen and its analogues provides insights into the mechanism of drug action in this class of organoselenium antioxidants. The potential role of the intermolecular Se⋅⋅⋅O chalcogen bonding in forming the intermediate supramolecular assembly that leads to the bond cleavage mechanism has been proposed in terms of electron density topological parameters in a series of molecular complexes of ebselen with reactive oxygen species (ROS). © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

The sensitivity of the AmpliSens PCR assay for detection of C. trachomatis (6.3% prevalence), M. genitalium (5.7% prevalence), N. gonorrhoeae (0.3% prevalence), and T. vaginalis (0.08% prevalence) was 97.5% (95% confidence interval (CI): 91.2-99.6%), 81.9% (95% CI: 70.7-89.7%), 100% (95% CI: 40.2-100%) and 100% (95% CI: 16.5-100%), respectively. The specificity of the AmpliSens PCR assay was 100% (95% CI: 99.6-100%) for all agents. The analytical sensitivity and specificity for N. gonorrhoeae detection was excellent, i.e., 55 international gonococcal strains detected and 135 isolates of 13 non-gonococcal Neisseria species were negative. In conclusion, the multiplex real-time AmpliSens N.gonorrhoeae/C.trachomatis/M.genitalium/T.vaginalis-MULTIPRIME-FRT PCR assay demonstrated high sensitivity and excellent specificity for the detection of C. trachomatis, N. gonorrhoeae, and T. vaginalis, and excellent specificity but suboptimal sensitivity for M. genitalium detection. © 2015 APMIS.

    Oral cancer is a common type of head and neck cancers. Knowing its epidemiologic characteristics is crucial to preventing, diagnosing, and treating this cancer. This study aimed to explore the epidemiologic characteristics of oral cancer in South China. We retrospectively analyzed data from 4097 oral cancer patients treated at the Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center between 1960 and 2013. We compared the age of onset, sex ratio, pathologic type, and primary tumor location among three subcultural areas (Guangfu, Hakka, and Chaoshan) and between an economically developed region and a less-developed one in Guangdong. Overall, oral cancer had a male-to-female ratio of approximately 2:1, and this ratio decreased over time. Oral cancer occurred mostly in patients of 45-64 years old (54.5%), and the percentage of older patients gradually increased over time. The most common tumor location was the tongue. Squamous cell carcinoma was the predominant pathologic type. The percentage of blood type O in oral cancer patients was lower than that in the healthy population. The male-to-female ratio in the Chaoshan area was higher than that in the Guangfu and Hakka areas, whereas the age of disease onset in Guangfu was higher than that in Hakka and Chaoshan. The male-to-female ratio was lower and the age of disease onset was higher in the economically developed region than in the less-developed region. The incidence of oral cancer in South China presents typical characteristics to which doctors should pay attention when diagnosing and treating oral cancer patients.

    Full Text Available Amartya Sen, se considera a sí mismo como “uno más” de los economistas de la corriente principal quien, tan sólo, ha intentado llamar la atención del resto de sus colegas sobre la existencia de problemas a los que pocas veces dedican su análisis (Swedberg, 1990: 259. Sin embargo, al recorrer las páginas de sus numerosos libros y artículos nos llama la atención un tratamiento de la disciplina económica que no es, para nada, reflejo de la imagen habitual de los profesionales de la tendencia dominante en la economía. No que no maneje los conceptos y la lógica fundamental de ésta. Todo lo contrario. Su exquisita formación demuestra conocimiento de la tradición neoclásica, una capacidad en el uso de la formalización matemática, y un dominio de la econometría, que no le dejan a la zaga de ningún otro economista de los que definen el panorama actual de la profesión.Sin embargo, lo sorprendente en él, es que no se limita a moverse en el ámbito definido por los intereses de la corriente principal, sino que se pasea con comodidad en el conocimiento de los clásicos y trasciende los límites habitualmente considerados como fronteras de la economía, para utilizar instrumentos analíticos de lo que algunos pudieran considerar sociología, así como para profundizar en el campo filosófico.

    Full Text Available Since 2009, the radical Muslim movement in northern Nigeria known as Boko Haram has become widely known in Western media for both its militant actions and its ultra-fundamentalist programme. This analysis examines Boko Haram from a historical perspective, viewing the movement as a result of social, political and generational dynamics within the larger field of northern Nigerian radical Islam. The contribution also considers some of the theological dimensions of the dispute between Boko Haram and its Muslim opponents and presents the different stages of militant activity through which this movement has gone so far. The article shows that movements such as Boko Haram are deeply rooted in northern Nigeria’s specific economic, religious and political development and are thus likely to crop up again if basic frame conditions such as social injustice, corruption and economic mismanagement do not change.Seit 2009 wurde die unter dem Namen Boko Haram bekannte radikale muslimische Bewegung in Nordnigeria in westlichen Medien für ihre militanten Aktionen und ihr ultrafundamentalistisches Programm bekannt. Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht die Bewegung aus historischer Perspektive und sieht die Entstehung von Boko Haram als Ergebnis sozialer, politischer und generationsbezogener Dynamiken innerhalb des radikalen Islam im Norden Nigerias. Der Autor verweist zudem auf theologische Dimensionen der Auseinandersetzung zwischen der Bewegung und ihren muslimischen Gegnern und stellt die verschiedenen Phasen militanter Aktionen Boko Harams dar, die bislang erkennbar sind. Der Beitrag belegt, dass Bewegungen wie Boko Haram tief in den spezifischen ökonomischen, religiösen und politischen Bedingungen im Norden Nigerias verwurzelt sind und daher immer wieder entstehen können, sollten sich wesentliche Rahmenbedingungen – wie soziale Ungerechtigkeit, Korruption und ökonomisches Missmanagement – nicht ändern.

    Full Text Available Resumo: Investiga-se, por meio desse artigo, a relação entre livre-mercados e desenvolvimento humano, na perspectiva de coadunar tais mecanismos, com ênfase no pensamento de Amartya Sen. A metodologia aplicada é descritivo-analítica, além de qualitativa. Para tanto, parte da análise do mercado livre, com seu conceito e implicações, além da visão pautada no desenvolvimento. Sublinha-se a competência do mercado em promover o crescimento. Demonstra que o livre-mercado é a possibilidade de as pessoas realizarem trocas livremente, sem ingerência do Estado. Observa que tais interferências estatais na economia, muitas vezes, prejudicam o desenvolvimento, pois os agentes de mercado têm mais perícia para realizarem os cálculos econômicos. Empós, são estudadas as críticas ao livre-mercado, notadamente a sua incapacidade de combater as mazelas sociais sozinho, especialmente o desemprego, a fome, a pobreza e outros tipos de privação. Aborda a necessidade de coadunar o livre-mercado e o crescimento econômico com desenvolvimento humano, com o fito de proporcionar aos agentes envolvidos no processo de desenvolvimento a participação nos ganhos econômicos, revertendo-os em conquistas sociais. Nessa perspectiva, apresenta a análise de Amartya Sen para essa relação e se enumera os dois polos por meio da concepção de capacidades. Por fim, avalia-se, por intermédio do autor, se o livre-mercado é o melhor meio de crescimento econômico e conclui-se pela incapacidade do mercado, sem a conjunção da atuação estatal, de resolver o desequilíbrio econômico-social. Enfatiza-se a necessidade de uma perspectiva que consiga concatenar livre-mercado e desenvolvimento humano, pelo incremento das capacidades humanas.   Abstract: This article aims to address the issue of relationship between free markets and human development, especially in view of the possibilities of such consistent mechanisms, emphasizing the thought of Amartya Sen

    Full Text Available Cet article porte sur la manière dont la prohibition de mêler nourritures lactées et carnées dans le judaïsme se matérialise par les objets de la cuisine et leurs usages quotidiens, à partir d’une recherche réalisée à Londres auprès de couples juifs ashkénazes qui se définissent presque tous comme orthodoxes (modern orthodox et dont la scolarisation dans des écoles juives a parfois pu contribuer à revivifier les pratiques religieuses. Par delà la diversité des habitudes culinaires et de leurs formes (ex : végétarisme, par delà les éventuelles variations individuelles de l’observance religieuse au cours du cycle de vie, l’interdit alimentaire de mêler lait et viande est respecté par l’ensemble des personnes rencontrées. Il s’agit alors d’en comprendre le sens et la portée. Les conséquences matérielles de cet interdit alimentaire permettent de saisir l’importance de la religion dans le logement et les activités de tous les jours. Elles conduisent à articuler le plan matériel et le plan symbolique en suggérant une interprétation anthropologique de cette prohibition, en lien avec les écrits bibliques et les analyses déjà menées sur le sujet.This article is based upon research on Ashkenazi Jewish families living in London. It deals with the way, in Judaïsm, the prohibition of eating meat and dairy foods together is materialised through the use of kitchen utensils on a day to day basis. Material consequences of this dietary law allow us to understand the importance of religion in the Jewish home and in everyday life. Consequences which lead to the linking of material uses and their symbolic significance by suggesting an anthropological interpretation of this dietary law in accordance with Biblical writings.

A Unidade de Terapia Intensiva (UTI Neonatal é destinada ao tratamento de recém-nascidos prematuros com algum problema ao nascer. Objetivou-se comparar o desenvolvimento sensório-motor de recém-nascidos prematuros (RNPt da UTI Neonatal e do Método Canguru. Realizou-se um estudo comparativo, prospectivo e observacional, no Hospital Geral Dr. César Cals, em Fortaleza – CE, de agosto a outubro de 2004, com 14 RNPt, sendo 07 de cada grupo, com peso inferior a 2000g e idade gestacional entre 30 e 37 semanas. A avaliação foi semanal até a alta hospitalar ou até completarem a idade corrigida de 40 semanas, pelo método Dubowitz e Amiel-Tison, com análise de tônus muscular, respostas sensório-motoras, ganho de peso e tempo de internação. Como resultado, observou-se que os bebês do Método Canguru apresentaram melhores respostas sensório-motoras, comprovadas a partir da constatação de um menor grau de estresse, melhores respostas reflexas, movimentação espontânea e tônus muscular, e menor tempo de internação, permanecendo mais tempo em estado de alerta e interagindo bem com o ambiente e a mãe. Conclui-se que o Método Canguru mostrou-se uma alternativa mais eficaz de assistência a RNPt de baixo peso, pois proporcionou melhores resultados quanto às atividades sensório-motor dos bebês, se comparados à UTI Neonatal.

    Full Text Available O estudo objetivou analisar a percepção de mulheres em situação de vulnerabilidade social, sobre seus sonhos e as formas de enfrentamento das adversidades presentes em seu cotidiano, buscando perceber como a situação de pobreza, segundo as concepções de Amartya Sen, interferiam em sua atitude perante a vida. Trata-se de um estudo qualitativo, realizado em agosto e setembro de 2007, no município de Paula Cândido-MG. Foram entrevistadas 110 mulheres (10% cadastradas no Programa Bolsa Família, selecionadas aleatoriamente. Os dados foram coletados por meio de questionário semiestruturado e analisados por meio da técnica de análise temática. Verificou-se que o desejo por uma "vida melhor" foi, em última instância, o maior sonho das mulheres entrevistadas, sendo o conjunto "educação-trabalho-dinheiro" o meio mais citado para se alcançar uma vida digna. Contudo, a baixa escolaridade, o trabalho precário e informal e a má remuneração constituíram obstáculos à realização de seus sonhos. Diante de tais adversidades, a atitude das entrevistadas variou desde o conformismo e desesperança até o autorreconhecimento de sua situação como sujeito no mundo, capaz de sonhar e acreditar na possibilidade de realização de suas aspirações, utilizando suas habilidades e recursos para lutar por uma "vida melhor". Ressalta-se que uma política de combate à pobreza - como o PBF - deve buscar a expansão das capacidades humanas, articulando-se com ações estruturais, a fim de atingir o objetivo último do referido programa: a emancipação sustentada das famílias beneficiadas e sua inclusão social.The study aimed to analyze the perception of women in situations of social vulnerability, about their dreams and ways of coping with adversities in their daily lives, trying to see how poverty, according to the concepts of Amartya Sen, interfered in their attitude towards life.

  2. Desventuras de un pobre en el mundo económico: la Economía ortodoxa, sus límites en el análisis de la pobreza y la propuesta de Amartya Sen

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sandra Mira

    2004-07-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo utiliza una narración literaria para mostrar de qué manera la teoría ortodoxa o tradicional, especialmente el pensamiento de la escuela neoclásica, deja de lado el concepto de pobreza, al considerar el bienestar como la simple obtención de utilidades; además se presenta la propuesta del economista Amartya Sen, que postula la teoría de las capacidades humanas. Esta teoría establece como importante todo aquello que una persona es capaz de hacer o ser para conseguir sus objetivos y sus fines, permitiendo así, incluir y ampliar la visión de la pobreza. Al final se concluye que, a pesar de que la pobreza debe ser estudiada por la Economía, ésta se ha visto avocada a una imposibilidad de plantear soluciones para que aquella disminuya y, en gran medida, ello se debe a los limitantes que presenta la teoría ortodoxa.

    Full Text Available O presente ensaio tem por objetivo contribuir com o debate sobre o valor e universalidade da democracia para a emancipação humana. Propõe pensar a compreensão da universalidade da democracia no enfoque abrangente da cultura argumentativa, a partir de Amartya Sen e Jürgen Habermas. Entende que as abordagens metodológicas, pragmática de um e pragmática formal do outro dos autores são complementares. Nesta perspectiva procura demonstrar que a democracia, além de suas raízes institucionais modernas, vincula-se também a expressões culturais da Índia, África e América pré-colombiana. Portanto não é mera expressão de domínio cultural e político ocidental, mas desenvolvimento de uma tendência profunda de governo mediante a discussão e razão pública. O que permite recepcionar de um ponto de vista mais amplo a contribuição do pensamento de Habermas que explicita o nexo interno entre Justiça, Direitos Humanos e Democracia, na perspectiva procedimental de uma esfera pública  crítica  com  uma  racionalidade  pública  que  inclui  a  todos.  Apresenta  o desenvolvimento das capacidades políticas e sociais, bem como o papel instrumental da democracia, na construção da compreensão dos direitos e da cultura que permitem o aprendizado, a emancipação e o desenvolvimento da própria identidade.

Ce principe s’affaiblit aujourd’hui et laisse la place à une autre logique où la défection domine, ce qui suppose que les cadres deviennent les acteurs et les sujets de leur histoire. Comment vivent-ils ce changement et quel sens donnent-ils à leur travail ? À partir du récit qu’ils font de leur expérience du travail, on peut analyser leur rapport au travail selon trois dimensions : l’intégration à l’entreprise, la nature de l’activité et la construction d’une image de soi qui se matérialise par la gestion de sa carrière. Chacune de ces dimensions donne un rapport particulier au travail qui, pour les cadres, demeure un élément de construction de soi positif mais empreint de très fortes incertitudes.Loyalty long defined the peculiar link between managers and their company. Now on the wane, this principle is being replaced by a logic where defection dominates, making of managers actors of their own lot.

Pour ce faire, des entretiens semi-directifs ont été menés auprès de ces acteurs en prise avec ces questions de « durabilité ». L’objectif est de mettre en parallèle ces deux formes de contenu et de mettre en lumière les représentations sociales liées à ces objets en partant du postulat que ces dernières, en tant que forme de connaissance socialement élaborées, sont un guide pour l’action et que celles-ci se forment, se transmettent, et évoluent au cœur de la communication (Moscovici, 1976.This study focuses on the meaning of the concepts of sustainable development and sustainable agriculture.

    Full Text Available Resumo Em países em desenvolvimento, a pneumonia é a principal causa de adoecimento e morte na infância, principalmente em grupos vulneráveis. O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar os fatores associados à pneumonia em crianças Yanomami internadas por condições sensíveis à atenção primária (ICSAP. As internações foram divididas em dois grupos: i pneumonias e ii demais causas, de acordo com a lista brasileira de ICSAP. Foram estimadas taxas ajustadas de ICSAP e utilizou-se a regressão logística não condicional para analisar fatores associados. Mais de 90% dos registros foram considerados ICSAP. A taxa padronizada de ICSAP foi 18,6/1.000. As chances de internação por pneumonia foram 2,7 (IC: 1,3-5,4 vezes maiores em crianças de 0,1 a 5,9 meses; 1,9 (IC: 1,1-3,3 vezes maiores nas crianças que tiveram a duração da hospitalização variando de 8 a 14 dias; e 3,0 (IC: 1,2-7,5 vezes maiores nas crianças com diagnóstico secundário de desnutrição. O excesso de internações evitáveis é um forte indício da baixa qualidade das ações em terras indígenas e do limitado acesso à atenção primária, contrariando o modelo assistencial proposto pelo subsistema de saúde indígena no Brasil que, em tese, deveria privilegiar tecnologias assistenciais ancoradas na atenção primária.

    The self-expandable COMPLETE™ stent (Medtronic) has greater elasticity, allowing it to regain its shape after the compression force reduces, and has higher trackability, thus is easier to maneuver through tortuous vessels, whereas the balloon-expandable SCUBA™ stent (Medtronic) has higher radial stiffness and can afford more accurate placement without geographic miss, which is important in aortoiliac bifurcation lesions. To date, there have been no randomized control trials comparing efficacy and safety between the self-expanding stent and balloon-expandable stent in advanced atherosclerotic iliac artery disease. The purpose of our study is to examine primary patency (efficacy) and incidence of stent fracture and geographic miss (safety) between two different major representative stents, the self-expanding nitinol stent (COMPLETE-SE™) and the balloon-expanding cobalt-chromium stent (SCUBA™), in stenotic or occlusive iliac arterial lesions. This trial is designed as a prospective, randomized, multicenter trial to demonstrate a noninferiority of SCUBA™ stent to COMPLETE-SE™ stent following balloon angioplasty in iliac arterial lesions, and a total of 280 patients will be enrolled. The primary end point of this study is the rate of primary patency in the treated segment at 12 months after intervention as determined by catheter angiography, computed tomography angiography, or duplex ultrasound. The SENS-ILIAC trial will give powerful insight into whether the stent choice according to deployment mechanics would impact stent patency, geographic miss, or stent fracture in patients undergoing stent implantation in iliac artery lesions.

Strong linear correlation was observed and Bland-Altman analyses showed overall good agreement between the assays with mean viral load differences of 0.078 log cp/ml (NucliSens v2.0 - Amplicor v1.5, 0.260 log cp/ml (CAP/CTM v2.0 - Amplicor v1.5 and 0.164 log cp/ml (CAP/CTM v2.0 - NucliSens v2.0, indicating lower mean viral load results for the Amplicor v1.5 and higher mean readings for the CAP/CTM v2.0. Consistent with observations following previous comparisons of CAP/CTM v2.0 versus Amplicor v1.5, the CAP/CTM v2.0 assay detected low-level viremia (median 65 cp/ml in more than one-third of those in whom viremia had been undetectable (<20 cp/ml in assays using the NucliSens platform. These levels of viremia are of uncertain clinical significance but may be of importance in early detection of ART resistance in those on treatment. Overall the three assays showed good comparability of results but with consistent, albeit relatively small, discrepancies for HIV-1 clade-C samples, especially in the low-viremic range that should be taken into account when interpreting viral load data.

L’origine de ces verbes est sujette à débat et il est avancé ici une hypothèse sur l’origine nominale de ces verbes, ainsi que sur leur comportement syntaxique et sémantique unique. Il apparaît que, dans ce type d’énoncés, le sujet grammatical n’est pas le sujet logique du verbe, qui a un emploi modalisant en ce qu’il exprime un jugement sur les apparences perceptuelles. Ce conflit apparent entre syntaxe et sémantique transparaît également au niveau de certains types d’attributs du sujet (les syntagmes nominaux, les syntagmes prépositionnels introduits par OF et les propositions en AS IF / AS THOUGH. L’étude montre que tous les attributs renvoient nécessairement à des propriétés gradables, ce qui n’est pas le cas avec le verbe copule be. Ainsi, ces énoncés copulatifs, où le verbe de perception a un emploi modalisant, présentent tous, à plusieurs titres et de diverses manières, un phénomène de compression syntaxique et sémantique motive par l’application d’un principe d’économie langagière.This paper aims at analysing the disconnection between form and meaning in sentences involving copular perception verbs (look, sound, smell, taste and feel. The origin of these verbs is a controversial issue, and in this article, it is argued that they have a nominal origin and that they have identical syntactic and semantic features. It appears that, in these copulative sentences, the grammatical subject does not coincide with the underlying subject of the verb, which has a modalising use as it expresses a judgment concerning sensory appearances. This surface conflict between syntax and semantics also shows in certain types of subject complements – nominal phrases, OF-prepositional phrases and AS IF/AS THOUGH-clauses. This

    Anorexia nervosa is associated with multiple endocrine abnormalities.

But it remains to be clarified whether these alterations are secondary...... or etiologic. Feeding behaviour in anorexia nervosa is characterised by a strong ambivalence and not by loss of appetite. Hypothalamic amenorrhea is a diagnostic criterion, and is not only secondary as it often precedes the weight loss and persists for a long time after weight and motor activity have returned...... to normal. Hypersecretion of corticotropin releasing hormone seems to be secondary to starvation, but at the same time it may keep up and intensify the anorexia, physical hyperactivity and amenorrhea.

    Full Text Available Eva Billow as picture book artist and graphic designerThe 1940’s and 50’s was a dynamic period for the Nordic picture book. There is a general aspiration to explore picture book aesthetics, a need to find imagery and expressions capturing a new era. In my article, I will discuss how these ideas are expressed in the illustrator and graphic artist Eva Billow’s picture books. Her illustration style is originated in a modernist tradition of simplicity, clarity and typographic precision. Also, an idea about books as an art form is evident through her production. Eva Billow’s production covers a wide field of graphic design, from picture books, cartoons and illustrations to book art, posters and advertisements. I will discuss Billow’s use of aesthetics that can be related to functionalist ideas and will further place this approach in a larger context in the history of Swedish graphic design. The general interest in graphic design and new printing techniques among picture book illustrators can also be seen as a part of a tendency within Nordic Modernism where the artist aspired to make arts a part of the society. But the appeal for the picture book among the young Nordic artists and authors, prior and after the Second World War, also expresses an inter-artistic tendency, where the limits between different forms of art are explored.

    2013-01-01

    Det er en udbredt forestilling, at bureaukrati hæmmer mulighederne for innovation i den offentlige sektor. Det er argumentet i denne artikel, at dette er en alt for unuanceret forestilling. Nogle elementer af bureaukrati som arbejdsdeling og specialisering synes at fremme innovation, andre...... elementer som formalisering betyder tilsyneladende ikke så meget, mens elementer som centralisering synes at hæmme innovation. Artiklen er baseret på en gennemgang af både de væsentligste teoretiske argumenter for, hvordan bureaukrati påvirker innovation, samt resultaterne i fem udvalgte empiriske...

    INTRODUCTION: It is a general impression in the world of medicine that orthopaedic surgeons differ from doctors of other specialities in terms of intellect and self-confidence. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the self-confidence of orthopaedics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We asked doctors...... from 30 different specialities to fill out a questionnaire. In addition to this, the participating orthopaedics were asked to rate their self-perceived surgical skills. RESULTS: In all, 120 orthopaedics and 416 non-orthopaedic doctors completed the questionnaire. There was no difference in GSE scores...... as one of the least important specialities in the world of medicine (p = 0.001). CONCLUSION: Orthopaedic surgeons in general are not more self-confident than other doctors or the average population, but young orthopaedic surgeons have a very high level of confidence in their own operation skills.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Apresentação de um caso de ocorrência simultânea de síndrome nefrótica córtico-sensível e diabetes mellitus tipo 1. A raridade da associação dessas duas doenças, os sintomas clínicos e os exames laboratoriais que confirmaram o diagnóstico, bem como as dificuldades no tratamento com corticóides, tornam este caso de grande interesse. DESCRIÇÃO: Um menino de 3 anos e 11 meses iniciou edema progressivo até anasarca. Confirmado diagnóstico de síndrome nefrótica, iniciou tratamento com prednisona 2 mg/kg/dia. Após três semanas de tratamento, observaram-se importante perda de peso, de 23 kg para 16 kg, poliúria, polidipsia e apatia. Exames laboratoriais evidenciaram hiperglicemia, 657 mg/dl, glicosúria sem proteinúria, acidemia e cetonúria. Com o diagnóstico de cetoacidose diabética, iniciou-se insulinoterapia associada a prednisona. Permaneceu com dose diária de NPH. Aos quatro anos e um mês, apresentou novo episódio de cetoacidose associado a infecção das vias aéreas superiores e sem proteinúria. Teve recaída da síndrome nefrótica aos quatro anos e quatro meses, com boa resposta a prednisona. Nova recaída após três meses, durante retirada de prednisona, optando-se por iniciar ciclofosfamida diária associada a prednisona em dias alternados, com normalização da proteinúria. Permanece em remissão, atualmente com cinco anos e seis meses, recebendo insulina diariamente. Outros exames revelaram C3 e C4 séricos normais, função renal normal, hematúria microscópica ocasional, anticorpos anti-GAD (descarboxilase glutâmica normais; anticorpos antiilhotas positivos. A tipagem HLA classes I e II forneceu os seguintes resultados: A2; B44, B52; DR4, DR8, DR53. COMENTÁRIOS: A ocorrência simultânea de síndrome nefrótica córtico-sensível e diabetes mellitus tipo 1 é muito rara. Os autores discutem os dados de literatura, o padrão familiar e os estudos de HLA.OBJECTIVE: We describe the case of a boy

    Full Text Available To a modern reader, Robert d’Orbigny’s romance is probably one of the most challenging idylls of the Middle Ages: the young beautiful heroes Floire and Blanchefleur, happily married and ready to found a Christian family (and conceive Berthe, Charlemagne’s mother, become, in two verses at the end of the romance, the proficient perpetrators of genocide (ms. A, v. 3331-3332. Converted through love and empathy, as soon as he is proclaimed Spain’s king, Floire completes a mass conversion through crime and baptism, moved by his tender feelings for Blanchefleur. Jean-Luc Leclanche, editor of the “aristocratic” version of the text, insists on the banality of this form of conversion at that time, and presents the Conte as a pacifist sample of clerical writing. Our paper invites to a new interpretation of this widely circulated story, exploring the emerging ideology of happy ending stories through the concept of “emotional intelligence”.

Han plæderer dog ikke nødvendigvis for en tilbagevending til "gammel- dags filmhistorieskrivning" og til en fokusering kun på film som æstetik og kunst. Med udgangspunkt i konkrete overvejelser over den danske stumfilm og gennemgang af væsentlige nyere filmhistoriske værker og teorier polemiserer han mod det han opfatter som upræcise og meget abstrakte kulturalistiske positioner, som enten glemmer de konkrete film eller overbetoner det blot formelle i filmhistorien. Samtidig tegner han også et levende billede af den kultur og de betingelser den tidlige film blev til i.

Da orale komplikationer som dental...... erosion og hævede spytkirtler ofte er eneste objektive tegn på en spiseforstyrrelse, kan tandlægen i nogle tilfælde være den første sundhedsprofessionelle, der får en mistanke om, at en patient lider af en spiseforstyrrelse.

The effects of pH changes, addition of salts (KH2PO4, NH4NO3, MgSO4 and MgCl2, the presence of osmotic stabilizers, as well as of calcium chloride, on morphological reversal and acid production were studied. Morphological reversal to the filamentous form was observed only in the presence of CaCl2 (500mM for the mutants strains 1 and 2, while the acid production occurred in both, yeast-like and filamentous forms.Alguns fungos filamentosos apresentam o fenômeno de dimorfismo, sendo que as alterações da estrutura morfológica podem induzir alterações metabólicas.

    ADHD og ADHD-lignende udfordringer er nogle af de mest udbredte former for psykiske proble-mer hos børn og unge (Dick & Ferguson, 2015). Forskning finder, at diagnosen kan stilles hos mindst 5 pct. af en børneårgang, hvilket svarer til 1-2 børn i hver skoleklasse (Polanczyk m.fl., 2007, 2014......; Thomas m.fl., 2015; Willcutt, 2012). Samtidig er ADHD og ADHD-lignende udfordrin-ger forbundet med negative konsekvenser, som har både en personlig pris og en samfundsmæs-sig pris, som fx behov for ekstra støtte i skolen eller særlige skoletilbud, forøget brug af sundhedsydelser og sociale ydelser og...... arbejdsmarkedet, et problempræget forhold til egne børn samt angst, depression og tidlig død (Loeber & Burke, 2011; Skogen & Torvik, 2013). I dag betragtes ADHD som en langvarig eller kronisk sygdom, men mestringsfremmende indsatser kan hjælpe forældre, børn og unge til bedre at håndtere symptomer på ADHD samt...

    Full Text Available Meditação sobre a tragédia humana, as narrativas tacitianas tendem não somente a ordenar e a expor os fatos mas tambám, e sobretudo, a sugerir planos de fundo psicológicos que se escondem por detrás da realidade sensível. Tacito – sabe-se – organiza suas narrativas com a finalidade de provocar na consciência de seu leitor uma série de emoções capazes de engendrar um estado de sensibilidade que o predispõe a compreender melhor as causas dos acontecimentos que Roma conheceu e que precipitaram sua decadência. Para atingir esse fim ele recorre a apresentação poética. Esta, ao mesmo tempo em que dá à narrativa de Tácito certa beleza, participa da estratégia de persuasão, tocando a imaginação dos leitores. Assim, a frase dos Anais XIV, 5, 1 e, sem dúvida, um exemplo entre tantos outros que mostram que, em Tácito, a poesia tem um conteúdo de pensamento que exprime ou aproxima a verdade histórica. E também um belo exemplo que, na literatura latina, mostra como é difícil a tarefa de um historiador pós-clássico, de unir a realidade histórica ao cuidado com o belo e ao respeito a complexidade dos acontecimentos históricos. Nas narrativas de Tácito, frequentemente marcada pela dimensão dramática, a apresentação poética dos acontecimentos entra na estratégia da persuasão que incita os leitores a melhor apreender o sentido oculto da história.

    Full Text Available Se realizó un estudio de las propiedades tecnológicas del polvo de senósidos A+B concentrados con el fin de valorar la factibilidad de su procesamiento en la forma farmacéutica de tabletas. Las características estudiadas incluyen la compactabilidad, la presión de expulsión, el tiempo de desagregación y la velocidad de flujo del polvo. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que una mezcla de celulosa microcristalina tipo 102 con sílica coloidal sería un excipiente adecuado para aumentar hasta el doble la velocidad del flujo del polvo, hasta 4 veces la resistencia a la ruptura de las tabletas y disminuir a la mitad el tiempo necesario para la desagregación de estas. Las modificaciones en la formulación antes mencionadas no afectan de manera importante las propiedades de deslizamiento de las tabletas, al ser expulsadas desde la matriz en que se fabricaron.The technological properties of concentrates of sennosides A+B were studied with the purpose to evaluate the feasibility of its processing to the pharmaceutical form of tablets. The studied properties include the compactibility, the ejection pressure, the disintegration time and the rate of the powder flow. The obtained results show that a mixture of microcrystalline cellulose with colloidal silica is a suitable excipient to increase to the double the powder flow rate and 4 times the tablet strength and to reduce in 40 % the time necessary to disintegrate the tablets. The above mentioned formulation modifications do not affect in an important manner the gliding properties of the tablets being ejected from the die where they were compressed.

    Die Energieversorgung ist eine kritische Infrastruktur, da alle anderen Sektoren von der Stromversorgung abhängig sind und eine Störung katastrophale Auswirkungen mit unvorhersehbaren Kaskadeneffekten mit sich bringen würde. Das oberste Ziel der Betreiber ist daher sicherzustellen, dass Maßnahmen für eine störungsfreie Stromversorgung ergriffen werden. Cyberangriffe stellen ein hohes Risiko für die Energieversorgung dar. Dabei kann die Energiewirtschaft von Massenphänomenen wie Cybercrime betroffen sein, aber auch Gegenstand von technisch komplexer Cybersabotage werden, wie bei dem Angriff Ende 2015 auf einen ukrainischen Energieversorger. Die Stromversorgung fiel für mehrere Stunden aus und hatte weitreichende Auswirkungen für die Bevölkerung und Unternehmen.

This framework for thinking has many commonalities with the core ideas in career guidance.

    Full Text Available This study aimed to elucidate cortical mechanisms and to identify the areas where occur such mechanisms due to interaction between bromazepam and motor learning. The sample was composed of 45 healthy subjects randomly distributed in 3 groups: placebo (n=15, bromazepam 3 mg (n=15 or bromazepam 6 mg (n=15. To perform the experimental task, subjects sat comfortably at a distance of approximately 20 cm from the typewriter. The typewriter keyboard was covered with a wooden box to avoid visual information about the hands' position. The typewriting task was performed concomitantly with EEG recording. ANOVA two-way results indicated a decreased asymmetry in sensorimotor areas in the experimental groups. Our interpretation is that moderate doses of bromazepam may improve performance on tasks with predictable elements to promote stability of psychomotor functions, but may also impair performance on tasks executed in unpredictable environments.O objetivo do estudo foi elucidar mecanismos corticais e identificar as áreas onde estas ocorrem tais mecanismos devido à interação entre bromazepam e aprendizagem motora. A amostra compreendeu 45 sujeitos hígidos distribuídos randomicamente em 3 grupos: placebo (n=15, bromazepam 3 mg (n=15 ou bromazepam 6 mg (n=15. Para a realização da tarefa experimental, sujeitos sentaram-se confortavelmente a uma distância de aproximadamente 20 cm da máquina de escrever. O teclado da máquina foi coberto com uma caixa de madeira para evitar informações visuais sobre a posição das mãos. O registro do EEGq ocorreu simultaneamente à tarefa de datilografia. Os resultados da ANOVA two-way indicaram menor assimetria em áreas sensório-motoras nos grupos experimentais. Nossa interpretação é que doses moderadas de bromazepam podem melhorar o desempenho em tarefas previsíveis por promover estabilidade das funções psicomotoras, mas pode prejudicar o desempenho em tarefas realizadas em ambientes imprevisíveis.

    Full Text Available Bovine leukaemia virus (BLV is the causative agent of enzootic bovine leukosis (EBL. In Argentina, where a program to eradicate EBL has been introduced, sensitive and reliable diagnosis has attained high priority. Although the importance of the agar gel immunodiffusion test remains unchanged for routine work, an additional diagnostic technique is necessary to confirm cases of sera with equivocal results or of calves carrying maternal antibodies.Utilizing a nested shuttle polymerase chain reaction, the proviral DNA was detected from cows experimentally infected with as little as 5 ml of whole blood from BLV seropositive cows that were nonetheless normal in haematological terms. It proved to be a very sensitive technique, since it rapidly revealed the presence of the provirus, frequently at 2 weeks postinoculation and using a two-round procedure of nested PCR taking only 3 hours. Additionally, the primers used flanked a portion of the viral genome often employed to differentiate BLV type applying BamHI digestion. It is concluded that this method might offer a highly promising diagnostic tool for BLV infection.O Vírus da leucemia bovina (BLV é o agente causal da Leucose Enzoótica Bovina (EBL. Na Argentina, iniciou-se um programa de erradicação da EBL. Neste estágio, é prioritário possuir uma ferramenta de diagnóstico confiável. Embora seja indiscutível a importância do teste de agar gel imunodifusão, empregado rotineiramente no diagnóstico serológico da EBL, faz-se necessária uma técnica de diagnóstico adicional capaz de confirmar os resultados duvidosos. Foi possivel detectar ADN proviral aplicando Nested-PCR em novilhos experimentalmente infectados com pequenas doses de sangue total (5ml obtidas de um bovino BLV soropositivo. Esta técnica, cujo procedimento leva 3 horas, demonstrou ser muito sensível, uma vez que foi capaz de detectar a presença do provirus duas semanas após a inoculação. Os primers utilizados são os que

    In the Oxford English Dictionary,nostalgia means sentimental yearning for a period of the past; regretful or wistful memory of an earlier time; and severe homesickness.That is to say,nostalgia has the meaning of desire to back home.As the longing (Gr.algia) for home (nostos),nostalgia is defimed as the longing for a home that no longer exists or never existed.This feeling of loss and fantastical romance was identified in the seventeenth century as a curable disease,yet by the late 20th century it had become the incurable modern condition.Nostalgia is also shown to be spatial in its expressions as well as causes,and must be investigated using a 'dual archeology of memory and place,and a dual history of illusions and actual places'.In addition,nostalgia are both restorative and reflective,and thus aimed to both conquer and shatter space.The emergence of nostalgia is associated with various acts of spatio-temporal distanciation,from the regulation of nation-states to globalization.The locations which can call for the nostalgic motions are not only the so-called hometown,but also the places where are full of our memories of some special times,such as our campus.Therefore,the campus can be made as a kind of nostalgic space.In order to explore the nostalgic environment on the campus and discuss its spatiality,this article regards nostalgia as a spatial issue,selected Sun Yat-sen University as the study case,and its alumnus as the research objects,to describe alunnus image of Sun Yat-sen University and their construction of nostalgic space.The methodologies using to collect data are in-depth interviews and image map drawing,and the analysis method is text analysis.For doing so,we interviewed 27 alumnus and collected 35 image maps,and encoded these data.The results include:1) For the alumnus,their nostalgic images can be divided into indicated nostalgic and evaluated nostalgic images,which are shaped by their individual and collective memories,and are influenced by the

MÉTODOS: Inquérito de morbidade hospitalar realizado com amostra aleatória de 660 pacientes internados em enfermarias de clínica médica e cirúrgica de hospitais conveniados com o Sistema Único de Saúde, em Montes Claros, MG, de 2007 a 2008. Foram realizadas entrevistas com os pacientes e seus familiares utilizando formulário próprio e pesquisa aos prontuários. A definição das condições consideradas sensíveis ao cuidado primário baseou-se na lista do Ministério da Saúde. A associação entre variáveis socioeconômicas e de saúde com as internações sensíveis foi analisada utilizando-se análises bivariadas e de regressão logística múltipla. RESULTADOS: O percentual de internações sensíveis ao cuidado primário no grupo estudado foi de 38,8% (n=256. As variáveis que se mantiveram estatisticamente associadas com as condições sensíveis ao cuidado primário foram: internação prévia (OR=1,62; IC 95%: 1,51;2,28, visitas regulares a unidades de saúde (OR=2,20; IC 95%: 1,44;3,36, baixa escolaridade (OR=1,50; IC 95%: 1,02;2,20, controle de saúde não realizado por equipe de saúde da família (OR=2,48; IC 95%: 1,64;3,74, internação solicitada por médicos que não atuam na equipe de saúde da família (OR=2,25; IC 95%: 1,03;4,94 e idade igual ou superior a 60 anos (OR=2,12; IC 95%: 1,45;3,09.

The following were considered as hospitalizations for sensitive conditions: diabetes mellitus, heart failure, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and immunopreventive diseases in individuals aged between 20 and 59 years. Findings reveal that, beginning in 2001, there has been a reduction in rates in almost all cities. Through the Poisson regression we didn't observe a lower rates after the full health system management. Among cities with full health system management, rates of hospitalizations for ambulatory care sensitive conditions increased as the population size decreased. Hospitalizations for ambulatory care sensitive conditions were found to be low-cost, easily-operated indicators and can produce knowledge about health systems, enabling their quality

O objetivo do estudo foi estimar a probabilidade do diagnóstico de CSAP em pacientes hospitalizados pelo Sistema Único de Saúde. MÉTODOS: Estudo transversal com 1.200 pacientes internados entre setembro/2006 e janeiro/2007 em Bagé (RS. Os pacientes responderam a questionário aplicado por entrevistadoras, sendo classificados segundo o modelo de atenção utilizado previamente à hospitalização. As CSAP foram definidas em oficina promovida pelo Ministério da Saúde. Analisaram-se variáveis demográficas, socioeconômicas, de situação de saúde e relativas aos serviços de saúde utilizados. A análise multivariável foi realizada por modelo de Poisson, seguindo modelo teórico hierárquico de determinação da hospitalização segundo sexo e modelo de atenção. RESULTADOS: O total de 42,6% das internações foi por condições sensíveis à atenção primária. A probabilidade de que o diagnóstico principal de internação seja por uma dessas condições aumenta com as características: ser do sexo feminino, ter idade menor de cinco anos, ter escolaridade menor de cinco anos, ter sido hospitalizado no ano anterior à entrevista, ter consulta médica na emergência, estar internado no hospital universitário. Associaram-se à probabilidade de CSAP: (a mulheres: faixa etária, escolaridade, tempo de funcionamento da unidade de saúde, residir em área de saúde da família, ser usuária do Programa Saúde da Família, consulta médica na emergência no mês anterior à pesquisa e hospital de internação; (b homens: faixa etária, ter sofrido outra internação no ano anterior à entrevista e o hospital de internação. CONCLUSÕES: As condições sensíveis à atenção prim

    Full Text Available No presente trabalho, foram sintetizados hidrogéis com ambas as propriedades, termo-sensíveis e pH-responsivos, pela formação de redes de alginato de cálcio (alginato-Ca dentro de redes de poli(N-Isopropil Acrilamida (PNIPAAm, resultando em um sistema IPN (sistema de redes poliméricas interpenetradas. Através das análises por microscopia de varredura eletrônica (MEV e ensaios de intumescimento foi possível observar que os hidrogéis IPN exibiram forte contração quando aquecidos acima da LCST (temperatura critica inferior de solubilização da PNIPAAm, ou seja, acima de temperaturas de 30-35 ºC. Observou-se ainda que devido à contração do hidrogel, houve uma diminuição significativa nos tamanhos de poros os quais foram observados pelas micrografias. Observou-se também que no intervalo de pH estudado os hidrogéis de IPN sofreram significativa variação da estrutura com a variação desse parâmetro. Tal efeito foi atribuído à presença de grupos químicos carregados com alginato, os quais possuem carga elétrica negativa. Os resultados indicaram que o hidrogel formado por alginato-Ca e PNIPAAm possuíram características especificas após variação de pH e temperatura, e que tais características são derivadas dos compostos individuais envolvidos na síntese. Nesse caso, as propriedades de alginato-Ca e PNIPAAm livres foram preservadas dentro do hidrogel. Tal hidrogel ficou mais resistente à aplicação de uma tensão de compressão. Como conclusão, observou-se que os hidrogéis apresentaram morfologia característica para variações controladas de pH e temperatura, podendo ser eficientemente aplicados como biomaterial na cultura de células.In the present investigation, hydrogels with pH-responsive and temperature-sensitive properties were obtained by formation of alginate-Ca network inside the PNIPAAm network resulting in an interpenetrated network system (IPN.

    Full Text Available Hospitalization rates for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions have been used to assess effectiveness of the first level of health care. From a critical analysis of related concepts, we discuss principles for selecting a list of codes and, taking the example of the Brazilian Family Health Program, propose a methodological pathway for identifying variables in order to inform statistical models of analysis. We argue that for the indicator to be comparable between regions, disease codes should be selected based on sensitivity and specificity principles, not on observed disease frequency. Rates of hospitalization will be determined, at a distal level, by the socio-economic environment and their effect on the social and demographic structure. Timely and effective care depends on the organization of health services, their availability and access barriers, which depend on the ways health and related technology are conceptualised and on their adherence to the biomedical model or to the Primary Health Care (PHC principles; performance indicators of the health system will be the proximal determinants. This indicator is potentially useful for primary care evaluation. The historical reconstruction of PHC improves the analysis of the indicator variability.As taxas de hospitalização por condições sensíveis à atenção primária são um indicador da efetividade do primeiro nível de atenção à saúde. Partindo de breve revisão crítica, este artigo discute princípios para a seleção de códigos de internação por essas causas e, com o exemplo do Programa Saúde da Família, propõe um modelo teórico para a seleção de variáveis para análise estatística. A comparabilidade inter-regional do indicador depende da seleção de códigos de doenças baseada em princípios de sensibilidade e especificidade, não na frequência da doença. As taxas de hospitalização serão distalmente determinadas pela situação socioeconômica e seu efeito sobre a

Foram avaliadas as enxertias recíprocas entre os clones 109A, sensível ao deficit hídrico, e 120, tolerante - 120/109A, 120/120, 109A/120, 109A/109A -, além de seus respectivos pés-francos. As plantas foram cultivadas em vasos de 12 L em casa de vegetação. Após seis meses, metade das plantas foi submetida ao deficit hídrico por meio da suspensão da irrigação, até que as folhas atingissem o potencial hídrico de antemanhã de -3,0 MPa. Quando o clone 120 foi usado como porta-enxerto, as plantas apresentaram sistema radicular mais profundo, mas com menor massa, retardaram por mais tempo a desidratação celular das folhas e apresentaram maior eficiência no uso da água. Sob seca severa, os teores de amido e sacarose decresceram em todos os tratamentos, enquanto os teores de glicose, frutose, aminoácidos totais e prolina aumentaram, particularmente nos tratamentos 109A pé-franco, 109A/109A e 120/109A. Essas plantas apresentaram menor eficiência no uso da água. O acúmulo de solutos não foi associado à tolerância à seca. O uso de porta-enxertos tolerantes à seca contribui para a maior tolerância das plantas ao deficit hídrico.The objective of this work was to determine alterations in physiology and those due to drought tolerance on Conilon coffee (Coffea canephora contrasting clones regarding the sensitivity to hydric stress.

    Full Text Available This study investigates the impact of social economics on job satisfaction. According to the hypothesis, the adoption of social economics’ goals and modes of work organization is a source of job satisfaction: reduction in the separation between conception and execution, increase in work’s interest and perceived usefulness, and better cohesion and coordination among workers. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with the workers in two consulting firms in sustainable development in France, one a cooperative and the other a private company. The results of the content analysis corroborate the hypothesis. The fact that social economy’s principles have positive impacts on job satisfaction in both companies also shows that social economy’s positive influence on well-being at work depends less on formal work organization than on the meaning given to work.Nous étudions les effets de l’économie sociale sur la satisfaction au travail.

    The Danish Local Government Reform in 2007 reduced the number of municipalities from 271 to 98 and the number of Regions from 14 to 5 along with major changes in tasks, finances and the equalisation scheme. One of the objectives of the reform was to realize administrative economies of scale. Measured by administrative costs, this article concludes that the amalgamated municipalities so far have not realized the expected administrative economies of scale. It is, however, also shown that the potential economies of scale prior to the Reform was inflated in a Reform legitimating process. Before as well as after the Reform, administrative economies of scale exist if analysing on administrative costs. Technically administrative costs by decentralised agencies, however, cannot be calculated and are therefore not included in the analysis. Basing the analysis instead on administrative personnel, including administrative staff employed at schools, kindergartens etc., the conclusion is that larger municipalities do not spend less resources on administration than smaller municipalities.

    Full Text Available Solitude and commonality – or ”two-ness” – are two central traditions in social scientific thinking. In much of social scientific research it is the socially isolated and lonely individual that is in focus as the given and natural theoretical starting point. Against this tradition of solitude the tradition of commonality or ”two-ness” has always been a smaller but vigorous tradition starting from the exemplar of two (or more individuals doing something together or jointly. The commonality tradition is discussed with special reference to the ideas of George Herbert Mead. Three central concepts are singled out and discussed: (1 Intersubjectivity as connected to the problem of co-ordination of actions; (2 interaction as the problem of linking actions to each other; (3 institution as the problem of concerted actions of people over time.

    Full Text Available Det er mange studier av den sosiale bakgrunnen til toppledere i næringslivet. Et tema som har fått mindre oppmerksomhet, er hvor lang tid det tok for lederne å nå til topps. En skulle forvente at ledere med bakgrunn fra alminnelige kår brukte lenger tid opp til sine topposisjoner enn kolleger fra de øverste sosiale lag. Analysene i denne artikkelen viser imidlertid at dette ikke stemmer. Toppledere i norsk næringsliv med fedre hjemmehørende i arbeiderklassen trengte ikke flere år på å bli toppledere enn ledere med fedre som tilhørte overklassen. Derimot viser det seg at jo høyere utdanning mor hadde, desto raskere karriere hadde topplederne.

    Hvad foregår der, når studerende arbejder i grupper? I almindelighed ved vi det ikke og kan kun bedømme resultatet i form af oplæg, opgaver, rapporter og procesbeskrivelser. Når gruppearbejdet foregår computermedieret - f.eks. som CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning - har man dog på grund af den skriftlige kommunikations permanens en enestående chance for at iagttage hvad der er foregået, og vurdere både samarbejdet og den læring, der kan spores. I artiklen undersøges samarbejde, refleksion og læring i en gruppekonference i konferencesystemet FirstClass (FC ud fra både en teoretisk og en empirisk nysgerrighed: Hvad er den læringsteoretiske baggrund for at hævde værdien af gruppearbejde, og kan man påvise et refleksivt læringspotentiale i computermedieret gruppearbejde empirisk?

    Full Text Available Hvilken rolle spiller medierne i hverdagslivet blandt etniske minoriteter i Danmark? Lidt firkantet kan man spørge: er mennesker af anden etnisk oprindelse mere integrerede, når de foretrækker dansk produceret fjern- syn, end når de foretrækker oprindelseslandets tv? Kultursociologen Connie Carøe Christiansen har i denne artikel trukket nogle af pointerne op fra en undersøgelse, som Danmarks Radio bestilte hos Socialforsk- ningsinstituttet om netop nogle af ovenstående spørgsmål. Carøe, en af rapportens hovedforfattere, analyserer medieforbruget hos etniske mino- riteter i Danmark i lyset af diskussioner om multikulturalisme og social integration. Artiklen er således inspireret af diskussioner om transnationa- lisme og diaspora-identiteter.

Inthis article the upper secondary school commission’s report Path to the Future – a reformed upper secondary school is analysed with reference primarily to its attention to assessment. It is concluded that assessment forms both figure and ground in the report, and the consequences of this are discussed. With a focus on assessment as both a pedagogical device and a steering mechanism, assessment in terms of passages for entrance, passing through, exit and crossover is discussed, along with the question of whether or not the proposals put forward in Path to the Future represent the way forward or a fork in the road.

    From a systems perspective the organization of the Swedish final repository project for nuclear waste is studied. Different aspects of organization are identified in the report, covering dimensions of geographical, operative, structural, responsibility and contextual organization. Following SKB's site selection for the applications for the final repository for spent nuclear system and the closing of the surplus value agreement, issues concerning operative, structural and contextual organization tend to become particularly pressing, which is reflected in three research questions: - How will the final repository project be organized operatively and structurally over time? - Why is the final repository project organized in this way by SKB? - What kind of contextual organization takes place in the final repository project and what are the consequences of these activities? How the different industrial units of the final repository project should be run and within which structure, for example concerning ownership and integration of units, is established in the report. SKB's reasons for choosing this kind of organization are also highlighted. Apart from legal and safety-related demands that must be met together with the demands of the owners, SKB's strategic preference for insourcing conditions organizational choices. The traditional task centred operative and structural organization of SKB is also reflected in the organizational choices for the present and future units of the final depository system. Contextual organization implies deepened actor relationships between SKB's owners and SKB on the one side and the municipalities Oesthammar and Oskarshamn on the other. Through active organizing, the final repository arena 'narrows down' and the final repository issue turns into an in many respects local issue. There is a clear tendency that the roles of SKB are multiplied in order to handle the demands that central stakeholders - in particular the municipalities - place on the organization of the final repository project

    Full Text Available Which similarities can be found between two such seemingly different projects as the “learning plays” (Lehrstücke Bertolt Brecht published in the period 1929-1934 and the contemporary punkrock-band Honningbarna? Most striking, perhaps, is the strong emancipatory element, a desire to develop the arts as a modus operandi for radical social change. By comparing the different strategies held by the two projects concerning the abolition of the division between performer and audience, participatory approaches in aesthetic production and strategies to explore yet unnamed relational experiences, the article gives aesthetic issues penned by Gregory Bateson, Jacques Rancière and Nicolas Bourriaud a spesific foundation in a Nordic contemporary practice.

Issues of integration, or interdisciplinarity,tend to be highlighted in new activities, but neglected in traditional educa-tional programmes (for example, in training for professions, although thedegree of boundary crossing could be the same. One argument in this articleis that it might be useful to talk about boundary crossing (or integrationinstead of interdisciplinarity alone, since organizational boundaries seem tobe as important as boundaries between disciplines.

En høy fruktbarhet i reinflokken er selve grunnlaget for en vellykket reindrift. Overraskende er det derfor at man vet lite om hvilke faktorer som bestemmer om rein skal bli drektig eller ikke. I denne artikkelen blir effekten av ernæring på reinsimlenes fruktbarhet diskutert. Undersøkelser indikerer at rein er som andre pattedyr, der fruktbarheten er relatert til kroppsvekten. Forholdet mellom reinens kroppsvekt og fruktbarhet varierer likevel sterkt. Mye tyder på at drektighetsprosenten i ungrein er avhengig av reintettheten. Dette indikerer at ernæringen er en viktig faktor når det gjelder fruktbarhet i ungrein. Vektspesifikk fruktbarhet kan derfor være en brukbar indikator for reinflokkens fortilgang. I prinsippet vil slike fruktbarhetsundersøkelser gi et tidlig varsel om reintallet er for høyt i forhold til beitegrunnlaget før en markert nedgang i slaktevekten observeres. Etter foredraget til Nic.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: analisar as tendências das principais causas de internações hospitalares entre aquelas sensíveis à atenção primária (ICSAP no Brasil, por faixa etária e região, no período de 1999 a 2006. MÉTODOS: trata-se de um estudo ecológico misto das tendências das três principais causas de ICSAP em menores de vinte anos. Os dados secundários foram provenientes do Sistema de Informação Hospitalar (SIH-SUS e do censo demográfico do ano de 2001 e projeções populacionais do Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE. RESULTADOS: as três principais causas de ICSAP, em menores de 20 anos, foram as gastroenterites, asma e as pneumonias bacterianas. Houve redução das taxas de internação por gastroenterites (-12,0% e asma (-31,8% e, incremento de 142,5% nas taxas de internações por pneumonias bacterianas, tendências que ocorreram de forma distinta por faixa etária e região. CONCLUSÕES: a descrição das tendências temporais revelou mudanças positivas na evolução das taxas de internações por asma e gastroenterites infecciosas e negativas nas internações por pneumonia. Uma vez que estes problemas de saúde constituem objeto de intervenção prioritária na atenção primária, tais achados evidenciam a necessidade de se aprofundar a análise e reflexão sobre os determinantes do perfil das internações hospitalares no país.OBJECTIVES: to analyze the main reasons for admission to hospital of patients who could be treated by the Brazilian primary care system (ICSAP by age group and region between 1999 and 2006.

    Full Text Available O Vírus da leucemia felina (FeLV pertence à família Retroviridae, gênero Gammaretrovirus. Diferentemente de outras retroviroses, uma parcela dos gatos jovens e adultos exposta ao FeLV não apresenta antigenemia/viremia, de acordo com as técnicas convencionais de detecção viral, como isolamento em cultivo celular, imunofluorescência direta e ELISA. O emprego de técnicas de maior sensibilidade para detecção e quantificação viral, como o PCR quantitativo, permitiu a identificação de animais positivos para a presença de DNA proviral e RNA na ausência de antigenemia/viremia e, com isso, um refinamento da análise das diferentes evoluções da infecção. Assim, reclassificou-se a patogenia do FeLV em 4 categorias: infecção abortiva, regressiva, latente e progressiva. Foi possível também detectar DNA proviral e RNA em animais considerados imunes ao FeLV após vacinação. Diante disso, os objetivos desta revisão de literatura foram demonstrar as implicações da utilização de técnicas sensíveis de detecção viral na interpretação e classificação da infecção do FeLV e rever as técnicas de detecção do vírus para fins de diagnóstico. Além disso, apresentar os resultados referentes à eficácia da vacinação contra o FeLV com a utilização dessas técnicas.Feline leukemia virus (FeLV belongs to the Retroviridae family, genus Gammaretrovirus.

The use of more sensitive techniques to detect and quantify viruses enabled the detection of proviral DNA and RNA in cats with undetectable antigenemia/viremia, and thus the refinement of the different infection outcomes analysis. As a result, FeLV pathogenesis was reclassified in 4 categories: abortive, regressive, latent and progressive infections. It

    observerte at værvariasjonen mellom år mest påvirket snødybde og snøens tetthet og hardhet. I skogslandskapet økte snødybden og tettheten med høydebeliggenheten. Tynnest og djupest snødekke fantes henholdsvis i vestlige og nordlige skråninger. Derimot syntes ikke skogsdriften å påvirke snøforholdene. Fra vår til høst utnyttet reinen hovedsakelig de høyestliggende beiteområdene. Tidlig og midt på vinteren når snøforholdene fortsatt var lette eller moderate, foretrakk reinen fortsatt høyereliggende beiter, men på seinvinteren når snøforholdene og plantetilgjengeligheten var på det vanskeligste, foretrakk reinen lavereliggende områder. Ut fra observasjonene kan vi antyde at særlig høyereliggende beiteområder blir mindre tilgjengelig for reinen om det blir økt vinternedbør i de nordlige skogsområdene som følge av globale klimaendringer. Vanligvis har de lavtliggende skogsområdene størst beiteverdi for reinen om vinteren, samtidig som disse områdene også er de mest intesivt utnyttede hogstområder for skogsindustrien.

Partindo desta pergunta, neste artigo discute-se a figura do diabo no imaginário europeu no sec. XVI e no Doctor Faustus de Christopher Marlowe. Em seguida são analisados alguns traços principais do diabo goethiano secularizado. O Mefistófeles de Goethe não é o demônio da mitologia cristã e tão pouco representa o grande vilão da peça. Seu autor deixa claro que a responsibilidade pelo mal produzido nas duas partes do Fausto é dos seus personagens humanos.

    Mechanical characterization of tissue is an important but complex task. We demonstrate the simultaneous use of Mueller matrix imaging (MMI), enhanced backscattering (EBS) and digital image correlation (DIC) in a bovine pericardium (BP) tensile test. The interest in BP relies on its wide use as valve replacement and biological patch. We show that the mean free path (MFP), obtained through EBS measurements, can be used as an indicator of the anisotropy of the fiber ensemble. Our results further show a good correlation between retardance images and displacement vector fields, which are intrinsically related with the fiber interaction within the tissue.

  14. Hybrid ventilation - functional technology or an ism in architecture?; Hybrid ventilation - funksjonell teknologi eller en isme i arkitekturen?

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Amdahl, Leif

    2003-07-01

    Hybrid ventilation is launched in bold full-scale tests at many places in Norway. The article asks if this is nostalgia, like a kind of back-to-nature thinking, or does it mean innovation and sustainability? So far the insight into this type of ventilation is rather modest, and only few of the actors in the sector can be said to master the theory behind it. The author has visited a recently completed building in Levanger and describes his impression. There are three equal ventilation systems in the building, each having its own intake tower and culvert system for air supply to the individual rooms. In spite of the low intake velocity, under special weather circumstances, snow drifts all the way on to the filters. The air supply to the various rooms takes place diffusely as displacement ventilation, but the positions of the inlet valves on the external walls are dangerously close to the working places, which may cause trouble for different furnishing. The supply- and exhaust fans are pressure controlled, which works well. Heat recovery is based on water/glycol and dimensioned for 50 per cent efficiency. As a preliminary conclusion, the author considers the system as one of more ways of achieving a good indoor environment without complaints. But he does not understand why this type of ducts yields cleaner and better air than ordinary steel sheet ducts.

    Full Text Available A travel in common or separate travels – policy texts on core subjects in the Swedish upper secondary school 1990 to 2009. In this article eight policy texts from the period of 1990 to 2009 are analyzed with reference to their attention to core subjects on different programs. Questions asked to the texts are: Are students on various programs to receive the same teaching in core subjects? How are the expressed intentions legitimized? Using concepts from Lilie Chouliaraki and Norman Fairclough’s (1999 critical discourse analysis (CDA and Basil Bernstein’s (2000 concept of classification, it is concluded that during this period a shift takes place in policy, from keeping form and content of core subject teaching on different programs in common, into making a difference in the form and content of core subject teaching on different programs. Furthermore, the legitimization process and consequences of the analyzed discursive drift in policy to the positions of pupils on different programs are discussed.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Aune, Margrethe

    1998-12-31

    This Dr.polit. thesis studies the energy consumption in houses and transport in Norway and contributes to a new sociological understanding of the role of energy in everyday life. It discusses energy consumption and everyday life both individually and their interplay. Private cars provide 86% of all passenger transport. The efforts taken to influence the behaviour of the energy consumers have not been very successful as far as the measures aimed at the households are concerned. If the aim is to decrease the energy consumption in Norwegian households, for environmental protection, then clearly increased knowledge is needed about the extent and complexity of the implications of behaviour for the technological conditions. Thus the thesis examines the interrelationship between everyday life and energy consumption. 165 refs., 14 figs., 16 tabs.

    1997-12-31

    The report is part of an evaluation of political climate challenges faced by Norway. The aim to stabilize CO{sub 2} emissions before the year 2000 is unrealistic. This is because (1) almost all electricity produced in Norway is hydropower, (2) more than half of the expected CO{sub 2} emissions up to 2020 comes from increased activities on the large and profitable petroleum deposits in the North Sea; these activities are hard to slow down, (3) substantial emission reductions in the process industry are expensive or impossible because of a lack of raw material without carbon, (4) reductions in the transport sector are impossible because of dispersed settlement, (5) strong economic growth and low unemployment imply increased energy consumption. All together this means that stabilizing the emissions in Norway costs more than in most of the OECD countries. The supposed gain in climate quality from measures in one country may ``leak`` out in the sense that the activities whose reduction caused the gain are moved a country that does not have an active climate policy and thus the global consequences may even be negative. Four examples are given: (1) Unlike most countries, Norway uses high-quality hydropower for heating. If Norway had instead used efficient petroleum fuels for heating and exported this electric energy to countries that generate electricity from inefficient carbon, then these countries would reduce the emission of CO{sub 2} by more than Norway would increase it. (2) Much of the emissions from the activities in the North Sea comes from electricity production in low-efficiency gas turbines. This emission could be eliminated by electricity supplied from land. But with today`s power balance in Norway, such electricity would be Danish carbon-generated. (3) CO{sub 2} tax on the energy intensive but efficient Norwegian process industry could move production to a country with more polluting production. (4) Reducing Norwegian gas export to Europe would decrease Norwegian CO{sub 2} emission. But this would be more than compensated by a rise in emissions from countries that would take Norway`s place as an exporter. 43 refs., 31 figs.

    The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has carried out a cost benefit analysis of the consequences of increasing recycling of organic household waste. In the cost benefit analysis both the economic consequences for the affected parties and the welfare-economic consequences for the society as a whole have been investigated. In the welfare-economic analysis the value of the environmental effects has been included. The analysis shows that it is more expensive for the society to recycle organic household waste by anaerobic digestion or central composting than by incineration. Incineration is the cheapest solution for the society, while central composting is the most expensive. Furthermore, technical studies have shown that there are only small environmental benefits connected with anaerobic digestion of organic waste compared with incineration of the waste. The primary reason for recycling being more expensive than incineration is the necessary, but cost-intensive, dual collection of the household waste. Treatment itself is cheaper for recycling compared to incinerating. (BA)

    Full Text Available Artiklen undersøger studerendes læringsoplevelser i projektorganiseret undervisning i individuelle grupperum og i åbent kontorlandskab. Den konkluderer, at de to studiemiljøer skaber vidt forskellige lærings-oplevelser. Det åbne rum tilbyder rige muligheder for inspiration og feedback og bidrager til fagligt og socialt tilhørsforhold. Endvidere synes det åbne rum at skabe bedre rammer for udvikling af lærings- og samarbejdskompetencer. De lukkede rum vanskeliggør både formel og uformel kontakt og giver mange studerende en oplevelse af at stå uden for fællesskabet. The paper examines students’ experiences with project organized teaching in two different spatial conditions: separate rooms and an open space office. It concludes that students experience the two types of spatiality to provide very different learning contexts. The advantages of multiple rooms arise from their affordance of spontaneous inspiration, feedback, and social inclusion. Further the findings suggest that the multiple group room assists in the development of competencies in the areas of collaboration and learning. In contrast the separate room challenge on both professional and informal social interaction.

This articlediscusses a specific type of integrative and boundary-crossing activity, namelymentoring projects and leadership training aimed at female scholars. Suchinitiatives are needed as one of several means of promoting gender equality,but the question is whether an exclusive focus on women is fruitful.Advocates tend to say that gender-conscious programmes are fruitful, whileopponents argue that they are just another way of teaching women to beand act like men. Here I discuss such initiatives in my own faculty, in termsof Bourdieu’s concepts of field, habitus and doxa. To understand the distri-bution of power and the gender division of labour within academe, genderaspects have to be combined with aspects such as class and ethnicity.

The most significant facilities are treated in a more elaborate fashion, as these are assumed to have key roles in either a true civilian programme, or in the prospect of weapons-grade fissile material production. The future potential capacity for the latter is calculated under certain presumptions, both in the case that Iran focuses its efforts on uranium-based nuclear weapons, and in the case that it should choose the plutonium path to nuclear weapons. All the conclusions and findings in this report are based on technological considerations. This means that social or political assessments have not prevailed, rather the picture of Iran's nuclear programme is drawn through descriptions and assessments of facilities and systems, and their role in the bigger context. Definite conclusions have not been made as to whether Iran's nuclear programme currently is aimed towards nuclear arms or nuclear power. The secrecy surrounding some of the most prominent nuclear sites together with more or less credible allegations of purely weapons-related activities in the past, make it hard not to conclude that Iran until the disclosures in 2002 made as great an effort as it could on its way on developing nuclear weapons covertly. The scope of today's nuclear programme seems, on the other hand, most likely to be in part to help relieve the ever-increasing need for energy, although considerable deficits to this strategy are identified, at the same time as the Iranian people are united in a giant, high-prestige project in defiance of massive international pressure. Adding to this is a much-feared ability to rapidly being able to redirect their nuclear efforts, and develop nuclear arms in perhaps as little as one year. This so-called break-out scenario, where Iran presumably would withdraw from the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), has generated enough concern among several of the dominant nations in the world, that they have gone to great lengths to try to dissuade Tehran from the continued pursuit of its in principle legal nuclear activities. As this report is issued, Iran still has some way ahead before its infrastructure can readily provide it with nuclear weapons on demand. But Iran seems almost to have overcome the presumably highest technological threshold, namely full-scale uranium enrichment. Today's infrastructure is far from sufficiently developed to be able to fully support Iran's planned nuclear power developments, but on the other hand the need for indigenously produced nuclear fuel is also several years ahead, as long as Iran's first self-constructed nuclear power plant is far from completion. The known and assumed uranium deposits, however, are of minute proportions compared to the stated ambitions of their nuclear power programme (20 GWe within 2030). Iran's future reactors will hardly be able to go online before they become dependent on fuel from abroad. The uranium deposits are, on the other hand, abundant for the future production of several thousands of nuclear weapons. And if the infrastructure that is arising today is actually directed towards that purpose, Iran will in theory some day be able to produce more than a hundred nuclear weapons a year. (Author)

    Full Text Available When it comes to the development of school and education between 1814 and 1905, the relation between Norway and Sweden has only been superficially subject to previous research, even though sources can verify contact and transfer of ideas already as early as in the beginning of the 1850’s. In this article, I will argue that Norway and Sweden are connected in common textual cultures, which gives a distinctive direction for the development of the school in the following decades. A textual culture refers to the material processes and ideological formations surrounding the production, transmission, reception, and regulation of texts. It studies the interaction between these processes and formations in order to show how texts get made and how they are understood. The textual cultures will here be studied on the background of Hartvig Nissen’s articles in the newspaper Morgenbladet in 1855, as well as a discussion between the school periodicals Almueskoletidende og Den Norske Folkeskole in 1861.
