    chirurgia cardiovascolare ed in odontoiatria. Le prestazioni dei materiali utilizzati in campo medico sono valutate analizzandone le caratteristiche di biofunzionalita' e biocompatibilita'. Tali concetti sono strettamente collegati: la biofunzionalita' si riferice alle proprieta' che un dispositivo deve avere per realizzare una certa funzione dal punto di vista fisico e meccanico, mentre la biocompatibilita' alla capacita' del dispositivo di continuare a svolgere quella determinata funzione, nel o sul corpo, durante tutta la vita utile dell'impianto che puo' anche essere permanente. I numerosi metodi di trasformazione e le differenti tecniche di lavorazione dei materiali polimerici consentono di ottenere dei prodotti che soddisfano diverse proprieta' fisico-chimiche e meccaniche, come la stabilita' chimica e fisica, la biocompatibilita', la possibilita' di subire processi di sterilizzazione, il controllo della permeabilita' a gas e umidita', il controllo dei processi di biodegradazione, la resistenza all'usura ed ai carichi ciclici, la durezza. Gran parte della ricerca sara' mirata al miglioramento dell'affidabilita' e della durata dei biomateriali gia' impiegati attualmente grazie alle loro caratteristiche di biofunzionalita' e biocompatibilita'. Gli sviluppi piu' attesi nel campo dei dispositivi medici sono relativi alla produzione di organi bioartificiali, in cui i biomateriali facciano da supporto per la crescita cellulare tridimensionale, utilizzando le competenze dell'ingegneria tissutale.

  3. Dispositivi formativi e forme di vita

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francesco Cappa

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Il dibattito pedagogico che ha caratterizzato gli ultimi anni ha spesso insistito sull’importanza del nesso tra sviluppo tecnologico e modelli formativi. Questa relazione, però, troppo spesso non valorizza i modi in cui l’esperienza educativa e formativa dovrebbe essere sempre più accuratamente pensata, progettata e predisposta se vista dalla prospettiva delle buone pratiche tecnologiche. Tale valorizzazione dell’istanza formativa deve prendere avvio da una riflessione critica e approfondita sui modelli impliciti ed espliciti che caratterizzano le pratiche educative e formative, valorizzando l’uso e l’interpretazione che i soggetti rendono attuali.Per consentire tale riflessione è necessario pensare un dispositivo pedagogico che non perda di vista la complessità delle dimensioni che agiscono nell’accadere educativo, capace di creare nuovi percorsi di sperimentazione delle conoscenze e nuove ipotesi di formazione di sé e degli altri. La formazione interpretata alla luce dei dispositivi pedagogici può offrire un valido strumento teorico e pratico per immaginare, progettare e valutare gli effetti che ogni azione formativa produce legati alla trasformazione dei saperi, alla vita delle forme e alle forme di vita contemporanee.

    Full Text Available Oggi è molto diffuso un approccio che associa in maniera stret- ta il concetto di Smart City alla repentina diffusione di dispositivi elettronici. Azioni di questo tipo, per quanto di indubbia utilità, se completamente sconnesse dal contesto e soprattutto dalla città possono trasformarsi in un inutile spreco.

  18. Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) summary

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2001-01-01

    The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) provided a brief discussion on the benefits of establishing a new regulatory framework. He suggested that a new paradigm in regulatory thinking is needed and stated that the reactor oversight process (ROP) serves as the appropriate basis for starting these discussions. He suggested that the ROP cornerstones of safety be used as the starting point for developing a new set of General Design Criteria (10 CFR Part 50, Appendix A). It is suggested that new operating criteria, generic risk- informed and performance-based regulations be developed with associated design-specific and regulation-specific regulatory guides

  19. Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) summary

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2001-01-01

    The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) provided a brief presentation on the state of energy demand in the United States and discussed the improving economics for new nuclear power plants. He discussed the consolidation of companies under deregulation and the ability of these larger companies to undertake large capital projects such as nuclear power plant construction. He discussed efforts under way to support a new generation of plants but noted that there needs to be greater certainty in the licensing process. He discussed infrastructure challenges in terms of people, hardware, and services to support new and current plants. He stated that there needs to be fair and equitable licensing fees and decommissioning funding assurance for innovative modular designs such as the PBMR. He concluded that NRC challenges will include resolving 10 CFR Part 52 implementation issues, establishing an efficient and predictable process for siting, COL permits and inspection, and an increasing regulatory workload

  20. Dispositivi e critica letteraria

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Roberto Talamo

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available The article deals with the concept of «dispositif» (device through the analysis of the connection with its antecedents in Foucault’s thought: «formation discursive» (discursive formation and «positivité» (positivity. If one defines the device as a whole destined to deteriorate and to surpass itself, the theory of these breaking points becomes clear through the observations about the historical times of Koselleck and Ricœur. The initiative (or «strength of the present» that allows a system to transform itself is identified, within literary criticism, in an articulate role of the author, conjunction and conflict point of an ontology of intentions and an ontology of events. Using these concepts we can read again one of the most important critical essays of the XXth century: Mimesis by Erich Auerbach.

  2. Campagna di social marketing per sensibilizzare all'uso delle cinture di sicurezza e dispositivi per bambini

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2003-05-01

    Full Text Available

    Obiettivi: aumento del 10% dell’uso delle cinture di sicurezza anteriori e posteriori e del 20% dei seggiolini per bambini nella Regione del Veneto.

    Metodi: il Programma Regionale di Prevenzione dei Traumi da Traffico è stato varato nel 1998 e rifinanziato nel 2002 per un secondo triennio. Fa capo alla Direzione per la Prevenzione dell’Assessorato alle Politiche Sanitarie del Veneto, coinvolge i Dipartimenti di Prevenzione di tutte le Aziende ULSS del Veneto e ha come capofila l’azienda ULSS 7 di Pieve di Soligo (TV. Nell’ambito del programma, il 16 maggio 2003 è stata avviata una campagna di marketing sociale finanziata dalla fondazione CARIVERONA e commissionata ad un’ agenzia pubblicitaria leader del settore. La campagna è stata preceduta da ricerca formativa con 19 focus group e 12 interviste, volta ad analizzare il punto di vista dei diversi target, nonché degli attori principali coinvolti (Forze dell’Ordine, autoscuole, etc. Dopo un test di gradimento, la campagna è partita con spot televisivi e radiofonici, inserzioni nei giornali e manifesti informativi destinati alle scuole medie superiori, alle scuole guida nonché agli ambulatori dei medici di famiglia. Attraverso i media si sostiene una serie di azioni nel territorio che coinvolgeranno le amministrazioni comunali, le forze di polizia e le associazioni di volontariato.

    Risultati: l’efficacia della campagna viene valutata attraverso due distinte rilevazioni dell’uso delle cinture di sicurezza/seggiolini, confrontando i dati raccolti prima della campagna e dopo.

    Conclusioni: i traumi da traffico rappresentano nel Veneto un’importante causa di mortalità e morbosità. Il programma regionale ha utilizzato la tecnica innovativa del marketing sociale come strumento essenziale per sostenere i cambiamenti comportamentali necessari a prevenire l’incidentalità da traffico nel

  4. The contribution of Nth and Nei DNA glycosylases to mutagenesis in Mycobacterium smegmatis.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moolla, Nabiela; Goosens, Vivianne J; Kana, Bavesh D; Gordhan, Bhavna G

    2014-01-01

    The increased prevalence of drug resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) indicates that significant mutagenesis occurs during tuberculosis disease in humans. DNA damage by host-derived reactive oxygen/nitrogen species is hypothesized to be critical for the mutagenic process in Mtb thus, highlighting an important role for DNA repair enzymes in maintenance of genome fidelity. Formamidopyrimidine (Fpg/MutM/Fapy) and EndonucleaseVIII (Nei) constitute the Fpg/Nei family of DNA glycosylases and together with EndonucleaseIII (Nth) are central to the base excision repair pathway in bacteria. In this study we assess the contribution of Nei and Nth DNA repair enzymes in Mycobacterium smegmatis (Msm), which retains a single nth homologue and duplications of the Fpg (fpg1 and fpg2) and Nei (nei1 and nei2) homologues. Using an Escherichia coli nth deletion mutant, we confirm the functionality of the mycobacterial nth gene in the base excision repair pathway. Msm mutants lacking nei1, nei2 and nth individually or in combination did not display aberrant growth in broth culture. Deletion of nth individually results in increased UV-induced mutagenesis and combinatorial deletion with the nei homologues results in reduced survival under oxidative stress conditions and an increase in spontaneous mutagenesis to rifampicin. Deletion of nth together with the fpg homolgues did not result in any growth/survival defects or changes in mutation rate. Furthermore, no differential emergence of the common rifampicin resistance conferring genotypes were noted. Collectively, these data confirm a role for Nth in base excision repair in mycobacteria and further highlight a novel interplay between the Nth and Nei homologues in spontaneous mutagenesis.

  5. L'espressione del passato nei quotidiani delle lungue balcaniche*

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Momčilo D. Savić

    1974-12-01

    Full Text Available È inutile sottolineare che le lingue parlate dai popoli della Penisola balca­ nica vanno d'accordo in molti punti, pur non avendo la stessa origine. Le affinita in questione sono dovute tanto alla simbiosi quanto alia convivenza prolungatasi a un periodo plurisecolare. Però se non è sempre possibile de­ terminare i confini etnici di un popolo balcanico (cosa che trova riscontro anche altrove, non è neanche meno facile segnarne i rispettivi limiti linguistici. Senza dubbio, possi.amo supporre chela situazione in questo campo fosse molto piu complicata nei secoli scorSii, essendosi costituite le nazioni vere e proplie appena con le rivoluzioni borghesi, e specialmente se ricordiamo che in certe zone dei Balcani continuano ad essere applicate più lingue e che vi incontriamo oggi stesso un numero non insignificante di persone bilingui ovvero plurilingui.

    Neuropeptideglutamic acid-isoleucine (NEI) as well as melanin concentrating hormone (MCH) is cleaved from the 165 amino acid protein, prepro-melanin concentrating hormone (prepro-MCH). Among many physiological roles of MCH, we demonstrated that intracerebroventricular (icv) injection of MCH induced increases in REM sleep episodes as well as in non REM sleep episodes. However, there are no studies on the effect of NEI on the sleep-wake cycle. As for the sites of action of MCH for induction of REM sleep, the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray (vlPAG) has been reported to be one of its site of action. Although MCH neurons contain NEI, GABA, MCH, and other neuropeptides, we do not know which transmitter(s) might induce REM sleep by acting on the vlPAG. Thus, we first examined the effect of icv injection of NEI on the sleep-wake cycle, and investigated how microinjection of either NEI, MCH, or GABA into the vlPAG affected REM sleep in rats. Icv injection of NEI (0.61μg/5μl: n=7) significantly increased the time spent in REM episodes compared to control (saline: 5μl; n=6). Microinjection of either NEI (61ng/0.2μl: n=7), MCH (100ng/0.2μl: n=6) or GABA (250mM/0.2μl: n=7) into the vlPAG significantly increased the time spent in REM episodes and the AUC. Precise hourly analysis of REM sleep also revealed that after those microinjections, NEI and MCH increased REM episodes at the latter phase, compared to GABA which increased REM episodes at the earlier phase. This result suggests that NEI and MCH may induce sustained REM sleep, while GABA may initiate REM sleep. In conclusion, our findings demonstrate that NEI, a cleaved peptide from the same precursor, prepro-MCH, as MCH, induce REM sleep at least in part through acting on the vlPAG.

    Since USNRC (United State Nuclear Regulatory Committee) initially addressed post-accident sump performance under Unresolved Safety Issue USI A-43, sump blockage issue has gone through GSI-191, Regulation Guide 1.82, Rev. 3 (RG. 1.82 Rev.3), and generic Letter 2004-02 for PWRs (Pressurized Water Reactors). As a response of these USNRC's activities, NEI 04-07 was issued in order to evaluate the post-accident performance of a plant's recirculation sump. The baseline methodology of NEI 04-07 is composed of break selection, debris generation, latent debris, debris transport, and head loss. In analytical refinement of NEI 04-07, computational fluid dynamic (CFD) is suggested for the evaluation of debris transport in emergency core cooling (ECC) recirculation mode as guided by RG. 1.82 Rev.3. In Korea nuclear industry also keeps step with international activities of this safety issue, with Kori 1 plant as a pioneering edge. Korean nuclear industry has been also pursuing development of an advanced PWR of APR1400, which incorporates several improved safety features. One of the key features, considering sump blockage issue, is the adoption of IRWST (In-containment Refueling Water Storage Tank). This device, as the acronym implies, changes the emergency core cooling water injection pattern. This fact makes us to review the applicability of NEI 04-07's methodology. In this paper we discuss the applicability of NEI 04- 07's methodology, and more over, new methodology is proposed. And finally the preliminary debris transport is analyzed

    Full Text Available I paesaggi culturali rappresentano una risorsa fondamentale per lo sviluppo sostenibile. Tra questi, i paesaggi terrazzati sono classificati come paesaggi culturali “evolutivi viventi” (UNESCO, 2012, espressione della storica interrelazione tra uomo e territorio. Attualmente molti paesaggi terrazzati sono considerati a rischio a causa delle mutate condizioni socio-economiche. L’esigenza della conservazione e di una gestione efficace di questo eccezionale patrimonio pone la questione dell’identificazione di funzioni e valori complessi del paesaggio, tenendo conto di bisogni, visioni e preferenze delle comunità locali. Questo studio ha l’obiettivo di identificare valori e servizi del paesaggio terrazzato sulla base della teoria dei servizi ecosistemici. Viene affrontato il tema della valutazione e mappatura dei servizi culturali, con riferimento al paesaggio terrazzato della Costiera Amalfitana in Campania. Le categorie di servizi sono state valutate con il coinvolgimento della comunità locale attraverso un questionario semi-strutturato somministrato online ad un campione di 147 soggetti. L’integrazione tra valutazione multicriterio e analisi spaziale in ambito GIS (Geographic Information System ha condotto alla costruzione di mappe dei servizi culturali che permettono di visualizzare in maniera sintetica le relazioni complesse che legano l’uomo al paesaggio. Gli strumenti di mapping collaborativo (Volunteered Geographic Information – VGI sono stati utilizzati per la costruzione di alcune delle mappe dei servizi culturali, integrando i risultati del questionario con i dati relativi all’esperienza diretta degli utenti.

  12. Principles of diet therapy in ancient Chinese medicine: 'Huang Di Nei Jing'.

    1993-06-01

    Huang Di Nei Jing, the first systematic Chinese medical book, was compiled from the observations of imperial herbal doctors in the Qin and Han periods (221 BC - 220 AD). From this classic traditional source may be derived the concept of a balanced and complete diet and probably the world's first dietary guidelines. Basic to the tradition are han, re, wen and bu foods, respectively 'cold', 'hot', 'neutral', 'strengthening'. Basic to Chinese cuisine are jan and tsai- 'cereal' (the rice staple and main meal) and 'dishes' to accompany the rice. Chinese traditional medicine, as in Huang Di Nei Jing, considers the nourishment of body and mind. It also emphasises that herbal medicine and food have the same origin. Diet was essential to the prevention of disease which a glossary of Chinese terms is given at the end of the paper in the Chinese tradition, was superior to treatment.

    Obiettivi: nell’ASLdi Brescia durante i mesi di gennaiomaggio 2003 si è verificato un consistente aumento di casi di meningite che ha allarmato oltre agli operatori sanitari anche l’opinione pubblica locale.

    Metodi: i dati riguardanti i casi di meningite verificatisi dal gennaio 1999 al maggio 2003 sono stati raccolti dal Servizio Igiene Pubblica dell’ASLdi Brescia.

    Tenuto conto della omogeneità dei dati nel quadriennio 1999- 2002 e della stagionalità che le meningiti possono avere, sono stati calcolati i tassi di incidenza per i primi cinque mesi dell’anno per tutte le meningiti in generale e per agente eziologico, durante il quadriennio 1999-2002. Tali tassi sono stati confrontati con i tassi corrispondenti nei primi mesi del 2003.

    Risultati: nel primi 5 mesi del 2003 si sono registrati in tutto 48 casi, di cui 9 da meningocco, 13 da pneumococco, 14 virali, 3 da altri agenti batterici e 8 senza agente microbico identificato. Nei 4 anni precedenti erano stati notificati 66 casi di meningite nei primi 5 mesi dell’anno, con una media annua di 16.5. Il tasso di incidenza di meningite in gennaio-maggio è stato quindi il triplo nel 2003 (rischio relativo = 2.9 rispetto ai 4 anni precedenti (p=0.0001. L’eccesso di incidenza si è riscontrato per tutti i tipi di meningite considerati in base all’agente eziologico.

    L’analisi per diverse età ha mostrato un aumento di incidenza sia nei bambini che nei giovani adulti e negli anziani. Non si è riscontrata alcuna differenza statisticamente significativa tra l’incidenza nel comune di Brescia (area urbana rispetto all’intera ASL nel periodo in studio.

    Conclusioni: l’aumento di incidenza per meningiti
    osservato nel 2003 non sembra spiegabile in termini di variabilità casuale del fenomeno da un anno all’altro e riguarda tutti i tipi di meningite e tutte le categorie d

    Full Text Available Introduction: Tuberculosis (TB is a human disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb. Treatment of TB requires long-term courses of multi-drug therapies to eliminate subpopulations of bacteria, which sometimes persist against antibiotics. Therefore, understanding of the mechanism of Mtb antibiotic-resistance is extremely important. During infection, Mtb overcomes a variety of body defense mechanisms, including treatment with the reactive species of oxygen and nitrogen. The bases in DNA molecule are susceptible to the damages caused by reactive forms of intermediate compounds of oxygen and nitrogen. Most of this damage is repaired by the base excision repair (BER pathway. In this study, we aimed to biochemically characterize three Mtb DNA repair enzymes of BER pathway. Methods: XthA, nfo, and nei genes were identified in mycobacteria by homology search of genomic sequences available in the GenBank database. We used standard methods of genetic engineering  to clone and sequence Mtb genes, which coded Nfo, XthA and Nei2 repair enzymes. The protein products of Mtb genes were expressed and purified in Escherichia coli using affinity tags. The enzymatic activity of purified Nfo, XthA, and Nei2 proteins were measured using radioactively labeled DNA substrates containing various modified residues. Results: The genes end (Rv0670, xthA (Rv0427c, and nei (Rv3297 were PCR amplified using genomic DNA of Mtb H37Rv with primers that contain specific restriction sites. The amplified products were inserted into pET28c(+ expression vector in such a way that the recombinant proteins contain C-terminal histidine tags. The plasmid constructs were verified by sequencing and then transformed into the Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3 strain. Purification of recombinant proteins was performed using Ni2+ ions immobilized affinity column, coupled with the fast performance liquid chromatography machine AKTA. Identification of the isolated proteins was performed by

    The aim of this study was to evaluate different approaches to scoring the National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire-25 (NEI VFQ-25) in patients with low vision including scoring by the standard method, by Rasch analysis, and by use of an algorithm created by Massof to approximate Rasch person measure. Subscale validity and use of a 7-item short form instrument proposed by Ryan et al. were also investigated. NEI VFQ-25 data from 50 patients with low vision were analyzed using the standard method of summing Likert-type scores and calculating an overall average, Rasch analysis using Winsteps software, and the Massof algorithm in Excel. Correlations between scores were calculated. Rasch person separation reliability and other indicators were calculated to determine the validity of the subscales and of the 7-item instrument. Scores calculated using all three methods were highly correlated, but evidence of floor and ceiling effects was found with the standard scoring method. None of the subscales investigated proved valid. The 7-item instrument showed acceptable person separation reliability and good targeting and item performance. Although standard scores and Rasch scores are highly correlated, Rasch analysis has the advantages of eliminating floor and ceiling effects and producing interval-scaled data. The Massof algorithm for approximation of the Rasch person measure performed well in this group of low-vision patients. The validity of the subscales VFQ-25 should be reconsidered.

    We previously showed that short-term hypo- and hyperthyroidism induce changes in neuropeptide glutamic-acid-isoleucine-amide (NEI) concentrations in discrete brain areas in male rats. To investigate the possible effects of hypo- and hyperthyroidism on NEI concentrations mainly in hypothalamic areas related to reproduction and behavior, female rats were sacrificed at different days of the estrous cycle. Circulating luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol and progesterone concentrations were measured in control, hypothyroid (hypoT, treated with PTU during 7-9 days) and hyperthyroid (hyperT, l-T4 during 4-7 days) animals. Both treatments blunted the LH surge. Hypo- and hyperthyroidism increased estradiol concentrations during proestrus afternoon (P-PM), although hypoT rats showed lower values compared to control during proestrus morning (P-AM). Progesterone levels were higher in all groups at P-PM and in the hyperT during diestrus morning (D2). NEI concentrations were lower in hypoT rats during the estrous cycle except in estrus (E) in the peduncular part of the lateral hypothalamus (PLH). They were also reduced by both treatments in the perifornical part of the lateral hypothalamus (PeFLH) during P-PM. Hypothyroidism led to higher NEI concentrations during P-PM in the organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis and anteroventral periventricular nucleus (OVLT+AVPV). The present results indicate that NEI concentration is regulated in a complex manner by hypo- and hyperthyroidism in the different areas studied, suggesting a correlation between NEI values and the variations of gonadal steroid levels during estrous cycle. These changes could be, in part, responsible for the alterations observed in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in these pathologies. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Obiettivi: l’ospedale dovrebbe rappresentare un modello per la promozione della salute, tuttavia, nonostante i divieti di legge, l’abitudine di fumare in ospedale è ancora diffusa. Obiettivo dello studio è rilevare l’abitudine al fumo di personale sanitario, pazienti e visitatori, nei locali dell’AOUS.

    Metodi: alcuni studenti universitari, durante le loro attività curricolari, hanno percorso i locali del policlinico in orari diversi, contando il numero di persone incontrate, operatori sanitari e pazienti/visitatori, e indicando il numero di coloro che stavano fumando, in entrambe le categorie. Questo studio è stato ripetuto negli anni 1998, 1999 e 2003.

    Risultati: la prevalenza di persone che stavano fumando è risultata del 6,4% nel 1998, del 3,8% nel 1999 e dell’1,1% nel 2003. La prevalenza di operatori sanitari che fumavano rispetto al totale dei fumatori è risultata rispettivamente del 25%, del 26% e del 23,8%. Nei due anni passati, nell’atrio, nel bar e nelle zone antistanti i reparti c’era una maggiore presenza di persone che fumavano; mentre nell’ultima indagine sono stati riscontrati più fumatori, oltre che nell’atrio, nei corridoi del piano didattico, zona non indagata in precedenza. Nell’ultima rilevazione, non sono stati individuati fumatori nei due bar del policlinico; mentre sono sempre stati rilevati, in numero esiguo, operatori sanitari che fumano all’interno delle corsie di degenza.

    Conclusioni: la diminuzione costante del numero di fumatori in ospedale, mostra come ci sia stato negli ultimi anni un rispetto sempre maggiore del divieto di fumo nei luoghi di cura. Il coinvolgimento di futuri medici permette di promuovere il problema fumo in ospedale.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The use of self-report questionnaires to substitute for visual acuity measurement has been limited. We examined the association between visual impairment and self reported visual function in a population sample of older people in the UK. Methods Cross sectional study of people aged more than 75 years who initially participated in a trial of health screening. The association between 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI-VFQ scores and visual impairment (defined as an acuity of less than 6/18 in the better eye was examined using logistic regression. Results Visual acuity and NEI-VFQ scores were obtained from 1807 participants (aged 77 to 101 years, 36% male, from 20 general practices throughout the UK. After adjustment for age, gender, practice and NEI-VFQ sub-scale scores, those complaining of poor vision in general were 4.77 times (95% CI 3.03 to 7.53 more likely to be visually impaired compared to those who did not report difficulty. Self-reported limitations with social functioning and dependency on others due to poor vision were also associated with visual impairment (odds ratios, 2.52, 95% CI 1.55 to 4.11; 1.73, 95% CI 1.05 to 2.86 respectively. Those reporting difficulties with near vision and colour vision were more likely to be visually impaired (odds ratios, 2.32, 95% CI 1.30 to 4.15; 2.25, 95% CI 1.35 to 3.73 respectively. Other NEI-VFQ sub-scale scores were unrelated to measures of acuity. Similar but weaker odds ratios were found with reduced visual acuity (defined as less than 6/12 in the better eye. Although differences in NEI-VFQ scores were small, scores were strongly associated with visual acuity, binocular status, and difference in acuity between eyes. Conclusion NEI-VFQ questions regarding the quality of general vision, social functioning, visual dependency, near vision and colour vision are strongly and independently associated with an objective measure of visual impairment in an

    Recently, under the de-regulation environment, nuclear industry has attempted various approaches to improve the economics of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP). One of these efforts is the Risk Informed/Performance-Based Operation (RIPBO). This approach uses the risk and performance information to manage the resources effectively and efficiently that are used in the operation of NPP. In RIPBO, PSA quality is one of the most important things. The nuclear industry and regulatory body of U.S.A have developed a measure to evaluate the quality of PSA. NEI (Nuclear Energy Institute) has developed a guidance called 'NEI PRA Peer Review Guidance,' and NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Committee) and ASME have developed the 'PRA Standard.' In Korea, several projects are on going now, such as the extension of AOT/STI of RPS/ESFAS, Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection (RI-ISI). However, in Korea, there have been no attempts to evaluate the quality of PSA model itself. Therefore, we cannot be sure about the quality of PSA whether or not the present PSA model can be used for the risk-informed applications such as mentioned above. We can say that the evaluation of PSA model quality is the basis for the RIPBO. In this report, we have evaluated the quality of PSA model for Ulchin 3 and 4 units based on the NEI guidance. We, also, have derived what items are to be improved to upgrade the quality of PSA model and how it can be improved. This report can be used as the base of RIPBO work in Korea. The review result based on ASME Standard is published as the separated technical report of KAERI

By comparison with current version of Huang di nei jing, most of the descriptions are similar, yet still with some differences, such as yin-yang nature of the five zang visceras, the liver being the root of "pi ji", the spleen being the root of "cang lin" etc. Wu xing da yi epitomizes the books about yin-yang and five phases before the Sui Dynasty, while Xiao Ji's quotations from Huang di nei jing interpreted from the views of yin-yang and five phases, are different from the annotations of later ages.

    Obiettivo: approfondire i rapporti tra carico lavorativo, personalità ed alcuni indicatori biochimici di risposta allo stress le cui modificazioni possono contribuire a spiegare la suscettibilità/resistenza al rischio di malattie.

     Materiali e metodi: l’indagine è stata effettuata su un gruppo di Vigili del Fuoco (n°61 confrontati con un gruppo di controllo (ricercatori universitari; entrambi hanno aderito tramite consenso informato e fornito un campione di saliva per la misura del cortisolo e delle IgA in condizioni di base. Un sottogruppo di vigili ha fornito anche un campione di saliva dopo un turno lavorativo notturno (condizione di stress. Parallelamente si è effettuato un assessment psicologico tramite la somministrazione di questionari quali: lo State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, il Big Five Observer, il Locus of Control ed il Sensation Seeking Scale. Risultati: in condizioni basali i Vigili del Fuoco mostrano un livello di cortisolo salivare più elevato dei controlli (24,9 ± 11,3 vs 20,0 ± 8,6 nmol/l, p=0,091, mentre il livello di IgA è simile nei due gruppi. Nei vigili, dopo lo stress lavorativo, si è evidenziato un calo significativo delle IgA (296,5 ± 160,5 vs 191,9 ± 95,3 Bg/ml, p=0,014 ed una correlazione positiva tra il cortisolo salivare e l’ansietà di stato e di tratto.

    Conclusioni: i Vigili del Fuoco sono risultati meno ansiosi, più predisposti al rischio e con un profilo di personalità di tipo realistico in linea con la scelta professionale. Lo stress lavorativo si associa ad una riduzione significativa dell’ escrezione salivare di IgA, assunta come indice di attività del sistema immunitario, mentre il cortisolo salivare, che rappresenta un indicatore sensibile di attività neuroendocrina sotto stress, pur non modificandosi in termini assoluti si associa con il livello di ansietà dei vigili allo studio.

  11. New Cricetid Rodents from Strata near the Eocene-Oligocene Boundary in Erden Obo Section (Nei Mongol, China).

    New cricetids (Eucricetodon wangae sp. nov., Eucricetodon sp. and Pappocricetodon siziwangqiensis sp. nov.) are reported from the lower and middle parts of the "Upper Red" beds of the Erden Obo section in Nei Mongol, China. Eucricetodon wangae is more primitive than other known species of the genus from lower Oligocene of Asia and Europe in having a single anterocone on M1, a single connection between the protocone and the paracone, the anterior metalophule connection in M1-2 and weaker anteroconid and ectomesolophid in lower molars. Pappocricetodon siziwangqiensis is more advanced than other species of the genus in permanently missing P4 and having posterior protolophule connection. These fossils suggest that the age of the "Upper Red" of the Erden Obo section is younger than the age of the Upper Eocene Houldjin and Caijiachong formations, but older than those containing the Shandgolian faunas; the "Upper Red" is most closely correlative to the Ergilian beds in age, and probably close to the Eocene/Oligocene boundary. Given the age estimate, Eucricetodon wangae provides the new evidence to support that cricetid dispersal from Asia to Europe occurred prior to the Eocene-Oligocene boundary.

Methods Forty-two patients fulfilling European / American diagnostic criteria for Sjögren's syndrome underwent Schirmer testing without anesthesia, ocular surface vital dye staining; and measurement of tear film breakup time (TBUT. Subjects were administered the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI and the 25-item National Eye Institute Vision Functioning Questionnaire (NEI-VFQ. Main outcome measures included ocular surface parameters, OSDI subscales describing ocular discomfort (OSDI-symptoms, vision-related function (OSDI-function, and environmental triggers, and NEI-VFQ subscales. Results Participants (aged 31–81 y; 95% female all had moderate to severe dry eye. Associations of OSDI subscales with the ocular parameters were modest (Spearman r (ρ Conclusions Associations between conventional objective measures of dry eye and VT-HRQ were modest. The generic NEI-VFQ was similar to the disease-specific OSDI in its ability to measure the impact of Sjögren's syndrome-related dry eye on VT-HRQ.

    indirizzare i pazienti alla biopsia ripetuta. Materiale e metodi. Abbiamo valutato i risultati di 72 biopsie ripetute in pazienti con una diagnosi di PIN ad una prima agobiopsia prostatica ecoguidata. A tutti e stato effettuato un numero minimo di 6 prelievi. Tutti avevano un PSA>4 ng/ml. Risultati. Sono stati rilevati alla biopsia ripetuta 15 adenocarcinomi su 50 pazienti (30%) con diagnosi iniziale di PIN a basso grado e 10 carcinomi su 22 (45,4%) con PIN ad alto grado. Sono stati diagnosticati 7 carcinomi in 18 pazienti (39%) nei quali il PSA era diminuito durante l'intervallo di osservazione, in 16 su 46 (35%) nei quali il PSA in aumento e 2 su 8 casi (25%) con PSA stabile. Conclusioni. I risultati sembrano confermare che il PIN puo essere considerato un precursore dell'adenocarcinoma prostatico o un'alterazione istologica frequentemente associata ad esso. I pazienti con diagnosi iniziale di PIN a basso grado e soprattutto quelli con PIN ad alto grado dovrebbero sistematicamente essere sottoposti a biopsia ripetuta a breve distanza per l'elevata frequenza di diagnosi finale di carcinoma. Non esistono ancora indicazioni condivise sull'intervallo temporale tra le due biopsie. Le variazioni del PSA che si possono riscontrare durante il periodo di osservazione non rappresentano un parametro statisticamente significativo per proporre o meno al paziente la ripetizione della biopsia prostatica.

    Interoperability is a complex subject and often leads to different definitions in different environments. An interoperable framework of web services can improve the user experience by providing an interface for interaction with data regardless of it's format or physical location. This in itself improves accessibility to data, fosters data exploration and use, and provides a framework for new tools and applications. With an interoperable system you have: -- Data ready for action. Services model facilitates agile response to events. Services can be combined or reused quickly, upgraded or modified independently. -- Any data available through an interoperable framework can be operated on or combined with other data. Integrating standardized formats and access. -- New and existing systems have access to wide variety of data. Any new data added is easily incorporated with minimal changes required. The possibilities are limitless. The NOAA Earth Information System (NEIS) at the Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) is continuing research into an interoperable framework of layered services designed to facilitate the discovery, access, integration, visualization, and understanding of all NOAA (past, present, and future) data. An underlying philosophy of NEIS is to take advantage of existing off-the-shelf technologies and standards to minimize development of custom code allowing everyone to take advantage of the framework to meet these goals above. This framework, while built by NOAA are not limited to NOAA data or applications. Any other data available through similar services or applications that understand these standards can work interchangeably. Two major challenges are under active research at ESRL are data discoverability and fast access to big data. This presentation will provide an update on development of NEIS, including these challenges, the findings, and recommendations on what is needed for an interoperable system, as well as ongoing research activities

Si trasformano profondamente così non solo i monumenti ed il paesaggio, ma anche le stesse strutture sociali e politiche delle comunità nuragiche fino alla trasfigurazione del ricordo in mito nei centri cerimoniali o santuari. Abstract: The long trajectory of the Nuragic civilisation (17th - 10th/9th centuries B.C. is characterised by a succession of dramatic changes leaving visible traces in a varying landscape, like stratigraphy on a regional scale. These changes affect not only the Nuragic monuments and landscape but also the social and political institutions of Nuragic communities, culminating in a transfiguration of memory and a new mythology apparent in ceremonial centres and sanctuaries.

    In order to research the infrared radiation characteristics of the skin covering Traditional Chinese acupuncture points, which are NeiGuan in the forearm and LaoGong in the center of the palm, we detected continuously the infrared radiation spectra of the human body surface by using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. The experimental results showed that firstly, the differences of the infrared radiation spectra of the human body surface were obvious between individuals. Secondly, the infrared radiation intensity of the human body surface changed with time changing. The infrared radiation intensity in two special wavelength ranges (wavelengths from 6. 79 microm to 6. 85 microm and from 13. 6 microm to 14. 0 microm) changed much more than that in other ranges obviously. Thirdly, the proportions of the infrared radiation spectra changed, which were calculated from the spectra of two different aupuncture points, were same in these two special wavelength ranges, but their magnitude changes were different. These results suggested that the infrared radiation of acupuncture points have the same biological basis, and the mechanism of the infrared radiation in these two special wavelength ranges is different from other tissue heat radiation.

MÉTODOS: Estudo prospectivo composto de 30 pacientes com uveítes que foram divididos em dois grupos conforme a etiologia, infecciosa e não infecciosa, tendo sido aplicado duas vezes em cada paciente o questionário NEI-VFQ-25 que avalia a qualidade de vida relacionada à saúde geral e visual. RESULTADOS: A toxoplasmose foi a principal causa de uveíte infecciosa, enquanto a não infecciosa foi a síndrome de Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada. Quanto à qualidade de vida, a saúde geral é melhor no grupo de causa infecciosa, sendo que a saúde ocular é regular nos dois grupos. Apesar do déficit visual não provocar grandes distúrbios e restrições sociais, ambos os grupos apresentam comprometimento emocional importante, sendo que no grupo de causa não infecciosa, esse comprometimento gera grau maior de dependência para a realização de tarefas do cotidiano. CONCLUSÃO: A maior dependência social e na realização de atividades do dia-a-dia no grupo de uveítes de causa não infecciosas, se explica pelo modo crônico e recidivante dessas afecções, o que leva à qualidade de vida inferior se comparada ao outro grupo.PURPOSE: To evaluate the life quality of patients with infectious and non-infectious uveitis evaluated at the uveitis service of the Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho-UFRJ, using the NEI-VFQ-25 questionnaire in order to clarify the importance of uveitis diagnosis and treatment as well as its consequences to visual and social functions of the patients.

    Full Text Available This paper aims at analyzing the emergence of the middle classes in BRIC(S countries. Despite the differences between the geo-cultural contexts, it is a phenomenon that goes hand in hand with extremely significant growth rates experienced by emerging economies over the last decade. Dealing with the specific characteristics of the middle classes in BRIC(S countries means facing with a matter of the global future in terms of both economic prospects and international relationship. In this paper we are going to reconstruct firstly an operational definition of middle class concept in emerging economies, as well as defining criteria and drafting their future evolution. Secondly we are going to examine the articulation of the middle class in each BRIC(S countries (Asia, South America and the Caribbean, Africa, Russia. Finally, we are going to mention the social policies necessary to maintain and develop the standard of living achieved: public expenditures in health and education as well as infrastructural investment.

    ,8 anni sono stati valutati sia con TC che con ecografia. E' stato determinato il valore assoluto del grasso intra-addominale, sottocutaneo e totale, espresso in cm{sup 2,} sulla base delle elaborazioni TC. Con l'ecografia sono state valutate le distanze tra il muscolo retto e la colonna vertebrale e tra il muscolo retto e l'aorta, senza e con compressione dosata, quali parametri indicativi dello spessore del grasso viscerale nonche' la distanza tra cute e muscolo retto quale indicatore del grasso sottocutaneo. I risultati dell'ecografia e della TC sono stati inoltre correlati con altre variabili morfometriche (peso, peso corporeo ideale, plicometria cutanea). E' stata dimostrata correlazione statisticamente significativa tra la quota di grasso viscerale misurato con la TC e le distanze muscolo retto/aorta (r=0,80) e muscolo retto/colonna vertebrale (r=0,74). Anche l'area sottocutanea misurata con la TC si correlava (r=0,82) con la distanza cute/muscolo retto valutata ecograficamente. Non e' stata riscontrata alcuna correlazione tra l'indice di massa corporea e i dati ecografici e TC. I risultati ottenuti suggeriscono che l'ecografia puo' essere utilizzata in alternativa alla TC nella valutazione della distribuzione del grasso corporeo nei bambini obesi.

    cerebrale, retro-orbitaria e splancnica (splenoportale, mesenterica e renale) nei pazienti derodermici. Materiale e metodi. Il gruppo di studio (GS) e composto da 50 pazienti affetti da sclerodermia con anamnesi negativa per malattie cerebrovascolari, epatopatie, nefropatie e oftalmopatie. In tutti i pazienti e stata studiata la vasodilatazione endotelio-mediata dell'arteria brachiale tramite la misurazione del diametro trasverso con sonda ad alta risoluzione; sono stati anche misurati l'indice di resistenza (IR) delle arterie cerebrale media, centroretinica, epatica propria, mesenterica superiore e renali, in condizioni basali e dopo tre giorni di terapia. AI fine di valutare la variabilita intra-osservatore delle misurazioni, e stato reclutato un gruppo di controllo (GC) composto da 10 volontari sani che sono stati studiati con il medesimo protocollo Doppler e rivalutati a distanza di tre giorni senza ricevere alcuna terapia. Risultati. Il GS ha dimostrato un significativo incremento della dilatazione endotelio-mediata dell'arteria brachiale, del diametro e della velocita media di flusso portale, dell'IP dell'arteria splenica all'ilo (pre-Prostavasin vs post-Prostavasin, p < 0,001). AI contrario il GC non ha mostrato significative variazioni dei parametri considerati. Gli IR delle arterie cerebrale media, centroretinica, renale, epatica propria e mesenterica superiore si sono ridotti dopo terapia nella maggioranza dei pazienti del GS pur non risultando statisticamente significativi. Conclusioni. Nel campione esaminato il Prostavasin ha dimostrato una potente azione vasodilatatoria prevalentemente a livello periferico ed ha incrementato la velocita media di flusso portale ed il diametro della vena porta, ma anche l'IP dell'arteria splenica all'ilo, non supportando l'ipotesi formulata da altri autori di una sua azione mirata e specifica sulle resistenze intraepatiche.

    Full Text Available I bambini e i ragazzi nel nuovo millennio sono forse più avvezzi alla visione di un film o di una trasmissione televisiva che non alla lettura di un libro. Quello che è certo, è che sono sottoposti a un bombardamento mediatico senza precedenti grazie a canali televisivi specializzati nella produzione di programmi per l’infanzia e l’adolescenza, alla Rete Internet e ai dispositivi mobili di ultima generazione. E a scuola? Come cambia la didattica? Al laboratorio Mela abbiamo documentato con un video l’avvio della prima esperienza delle Cl@ssi 2.0 in Emilia-Romagna nelle scuole secondarie inferiori. Alla fine dei 3 anni di sperimentazione, durante i quali gli insegnanti hanno utilizzato LIM, computer in classe e Moodle per l’insegnamento a distanza, abbiamo invece cercato di capire, con un questionario, come e quanto vengano utilizzati i video per la didattica. Ne sono seguite alcune riflessioni.

The ostomy systems are technologically mature devices, and the more interesting market developments are about innovative modality of distribution and patients technical support, like home distribution. For every country it has been applied a common pattern, based on four aspect of the ostomy devices market: 1. the legislative aspect; 2. the prescription procedure; 3. the different models of distribution; 4. the competitive systems of pharmaceutical industry. All the data in this study has been galthered through relevant literature and interviews with the area operators. The ostomy devices are repayable against medical prescription in all the studied countries; significant legislative differences are registered in the repayment prices determination. For all the studied countries, in the decisional process related to the choice of one or another device, the essential role is played by the ostomy hospital nurse, that advises the patient immediately after the surgery. Finally, the more significant examples to innovate purchase and distribution process of ostomy devices in Italy comes from Denmark and U.K., where the home distribution is already available and it is working.

    Since 1995 the European Commission, through the SAVE programme, and the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations, through the Energy Efficiency 2000 Project, jointly sponsored the so called SACHA projects in Central and Eastern European Countries regarding major household appliances. Consistently, the main objective of the projects was to analyse and interpret the situation of refrigerators, freezers and washing machines in seven CEEC, so as to increase the knowledge and understanding of the issues at stake in the area of energy efficiency and environmental friendliness, and therefore to identify possible scenarios of improvement. This paper describes the work accomplished and the results achieved in this context, focusing more on the data collection and market survey moments and illustrates, with an abundant series of exhibits, the quantitative picture resulting form the analyses carried out. Possibility exists for replication in Latin America, where ENEA and Italian experience could be fruitfully applied. Reliable and complete information is in fact one of the prerequisites to overcome potential barriers and facilitate a successful enforcement of any energy efficiency policy. Effective implementation and regional harmonisation are necessary, even if projects can facilitate the fulfilment of these goals as it provides a consolidated methodology and an integrated scheme for basic data collection and analysis.

    Full Text Available The essay deals with some aspects of the knotty question concerning the presence of Aion, Eros and Hades in the variegated universe of the Chaldean Oracles, traditionally attributed to a collaboration between two “Hellenized Magi” of the second c. AD: Julian “the Chaldean” and his son Julian “the Theurgist” (even if the theurgical expertise of the elder Julian, the repository of a more ancient Chaldean tradition, might not involve a direct eastern origin but only his knowledge of “Chaldean” sciences such as astrology and divination”. Aion, who is examined here in terms of his relationship with Chronos, as a more or less autonomous divinity, is mentioned only in the context of some fragments, but his name never appears in the oracular verses. Eros (beloging also to the triad of fr. 46, along with “Faith” and “Truth” stands for an independent cosmological principle whose task is to preserve the universe and the armony of the cosmos. The Chaldean Oracles never make any explicit mention of Hades, who anyway is cited by the Byzantine scholar Psellos as an autonomous divinity of the Chaldeans.

    In the framework of an ADS study (Accelerator Driven System, a reactor cooled by a lead bismuth alloy) the distribution of the deposited energy between the fuel, coolant and structural materials was evaluated by means of Monte Carlo calculations. The energy deposition in the coolant turned out to be about four percent of the total deposited energy. In order to study this effect, further calculations were performed on water and sodium cooled reactors. Such an analysis showed, for both coolant materials, a much lower heat deposition, about one percent. Based on such results, a thermohydraulic analysis was performed in order to verify the effect of this phenomenon on the fuel assembly temperature distribution. The main effect of a significant fraction of energy deposition in the coolant is concerned with the decrease of the fuel pellet temperature. As a consequence, taking into account this effect allows to increase the possibilities of optimization at the disposal of the designer. [Italian] Nell'ambito dello studio di un ADS (Accelerator Driven System, un reattore refrigerato per mezzo di una lega di piombo-bismuto) per mezzo di calcoli Monte Carlo sono stati valutati i contributi di deposizione di potenza nei materiali fissile, strutturale e refrigerante, ottenendo che il contributo della potenza depositata nel refrigerante e' pari al quattro per cento circa del totale. Allo scopo di meglio approfondire questo effetto, sono stati effettuati ulteriori calcoli in relazione a reattori refrigeranti ad acqua e sodio; i risultati mostrano come, in questi casi, la deposizione di potenza nel refrigerante sia decisamente inferiore dell'ordine di un per cento circa. Sulla base di tali risultati, e' stata avviata un'analisi di caratterre termoidraulico avente lo scopo di verificare l'effetto di questo fenomeno sulla distribuzione di temperatura negli elementi di combustibile.

Molto più breve (circa 275mila battute) dei testi attualmente disponibili. Il contenuto copre gli aspetti essenziali della matematica e della fisica del rumore (termico, shot. 1/f, …), e della sua rappresentazione nei circuiti. Discute quindi il rumore nei dispositivi passivi e attivi, e introduce i criteri di progettazione a basso rumore. Affronta infine brevemente questioni quali l’estrazione del segnale dal rumore e gli impieghi utili del rumore. L’attenzione è generalmente rivolta alla strumentazione fisica a bassa frequenza, in relazione alla pluridecennale esperienza specifica dell’autore. Si tratta di una estensione delle dispense, utilizzate per anni, di un corso universitario. Pertanto la trattazione è fortemente didattica, con particolare attenzione a rimuovere ambiguità e incertezze, discutendo il materiale in termini fisici intuit...

    In this work the stabilization of hazardous solid wastes containing heavy metals has been studied by means of novel matrices able to generate calcium trisulphoaluminate and silicate hydrates. The process is based on the hydration of two different mixtures containing blast furnace slag, coal ashes, chemical gypsum and Portland cement. The stabilization capacity of the two mixtures has been checked with regard to both a residue from an incinerator of municipal solid wastes and model systems obtained by adding 5 and 10% of soluble nitrates of Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn. The stabilized products have been validated from the point of view of mechanical properties by determining the unconfined compressive strength, and from the environmental point of view by means of static and dynamic leaching tests. Both matrices have proved to have great potentiality for the stabilization of hazardous solid wastes, the one based on blast furnace slag being better. Finally, evidence is given that different leaching tests are necessary to fully understand the immobilization mechanism responsible for stabilization. [Italiano] In questo lavoro e` stata studiata la atbilizzazione di residui tossici e nocivi contenenti metalli pesanti per mezzo di matrici leganti innovative capaci di generare trisolfoalluminato e silicato di calcio idrati.

Le capacita` stabilizzanti delle due miscele sono state verificate sia nei confronti di un residuo solido generato a seguito dell`incenerimento di RSU, che nei confronti di sistemi modello ottenuti aggiungendo singolarmente il 5 e 10% dei nitrati solubili di Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb e Zn. I prodotti solidi stabilizzati sono stati validati dal punto di vista delle prestazioni meccaniche mediante prove di resistenza a compressione, e dal punto di vista ambientale mediante test di rilascio sia statici che dinamici

    Purpose of this work is to evaluate the relationship of systolic and diastolic function at rest to exercise capacity. Seventeen patients with ischemic heart failure were included in the study. Ambulatory left ventricular monitoring at rest and during upright exercise with combined analysis of pulmonary gas exchange was performed. Ejection fraction, end-diastolic volume, end-systolic volume, stroke volume, cardiac output, and peak filling rate were measured. Significant positive correlations were found between rest ejection fraction and peak oxygen consumption (r=.60, p<.01), peak cardiac output (r=.67, p<.005). On the other hand, peak filling rate at rest showed a significant inverse correlation with peak end-diastolic (r=.48, p<.05) and end-systolic (r=-.66, p<.005) volumes. The patients were then sub grouped into two groups according to their rest ejection fraction (lower or higher than 40%). In the group with ejection fraction less than 40% a significant correlation was observed between rest ejection fraction and both peak stroke volume (r=-.66, p<.05) and peak ejection fraction (r=.69, p<.05). In the same group of patients an inverse correlation was found between peak filling rate and both end-diastolic (r=.65, p<.05) and end-systolic (r=.82, p<.005) volumes. The results of the present study suggest that exercise capacity is related to left ventricular function at rest and that rest diastolic function might be a determinant of left ventricular function during exercise in patients with heart failure.

A broad series of performativity  traces and clues, able to give further evidence of the real recitative essence of the texts, will be anlysed, aiming to ivestigate the question on the performative tradition of the cantari and on the complex alternation between orality and writing, easily detectable in many canterini texts. In this study we will investigate all these components both from their outer and more explicit appearance, with all its formulas and recurrent themes, and through the anlysis of rhetorical and formal constructions, such as: the peculiar structure of the octave, the paratactic construction, references and repetitions, identical, desinantial and cobbled together rhymes, anisosyllabism, a common and general use of correspondence between metre and syntax, minimizing the cases of enjambement. The filing of some texts from the tradition, searching for traces of orality, identified earlier, and the comparison among the respective files, urges to a closer examination of the genre and the texts.

    Full Text Available INTRODUZIONE: I rifugiati richiedenti protezione internazionale mostrano un'alta vulnerabilità e Disturbo Post-Traumatico da Stress (PTSD. OBIETTIVI: abbiamo utilizzato un approccio integrato multidisciplinare per valutare la loro vulnerabilità e psicopatologia. METODI: sono stati valutati 180 rifugiati politici secondo i criteri del DSM-IV-TR. RISULTATI: in un'alta percentuale di rifugiati politici la diagnosi principale è stata di PTSD associata con disturbi di personalità e/o altri disturbi psichici. CONCLUSIONI: i rifugiati politici hanno più difficoltà nel gestire le proprie emozioni, questo probabilmente è dovuto alla propria storia personale intrisa di vissuti traumatici, tuttavia attraverso un lavoro sia psicoterapico che farmacologico è stato possibile migliorare le proprie condizioni.

    2015-07-01

     In his nearly forty-year-career, Stefano Benni published a large number of works, each of which is deeply different from one another: all of them are hardly analyzable for their complexity not so much from a quality as from a quantity point of view, because his whole framework is based on the rhetorical device of adiectio. Therefore, it is very useful to analyze the author's works with an intertextual perspective, whose peak is represented by the food theme. Starting from this assumption, it is possible to undertake a textual analysis of his novels, both focused on stylistic features and organized according to a functional standpoint which allows to understand the different uses of the food in the author’s novels: a hint for the author’s imagination, a social pointer, a metaphor, a frame to the characters’ qualities.

    Full Text Available This article addresses the theme of prejudice in relation to disability as a central aspect in the context of the issue of social exclusion in people with disabilities. Going beyond the analysis of prejudice in narrow cognitive terms, as a form of stereotype, its conceptualization presents itself as a result of pathological defense mechanisms. With this in mind, prejudice towards disability is re-read in light of massive defenses against not only diversity, but also against those who carry mental pain. The articles concludes with a reflection on the ways in which prejudice against disability can be fought in our society in order to promote genuine social change.

    Full Text Available Urban transport plan according to the Italian national Law n.340/ 2000 have the specific aim of improving the traffic situation in the cities. Mobility plans consider all modes of transport planned towards a sustainable urban development. The measures implemented are a mixture of material and immaterial interventions with the aim to reach a better traffic environment with reduced traffic volumes and emissions, increased accessibility and safety and an increased quality of life for all citizens. In Italy, according to the principle that the mobility strategies cannot be separated from the land use planning, many cities are developing innovative Mobility Plans that are integrated with urban planning actions. In order to underline these best practices, a comparative study is proposed between five different urban areas in the central and northern Italy. Most innovative plans have within their strategies the following points: – Promote integrated policies to deal with the complexity of urban transport systems, governance issues and the necessary coherence between different policies, for example between urban mobility and cohesion policy, environment policy or health policy. – Help to green urban transport by introducing new, clean vehicle technologies and alternative fuels and promoting smart charging to encourage transport users to change travel behavior. – Support sharing experience and knowledge to enable better access to this information and help stakeholders to capitalize on these experiences and on relevant data and statistics. – Optimize urban mobility to encourage effective integration, interoperability and interconnection between different transport networks. – Improve road safety to achieve a high level of road safety, especially for vulnerable road users such as young people and the elderly. However only some plans have specific actions towards a real urbanmobility integration. For example the Perugia Mobility Plan define the “urban and mobility planning areas” where the land use changes and the new transport infrastructures are planned and implemented at the same time. The Bolzano Mobility Plan defines specific actions for the open spaces and pedestrian networks, that are considered as an integrated part of the multi-modal transport system. Another example is the Reggio Emilia Mobility Plan, that defines specific actions for the Transit Oriented Development of the metropolitan area. These innovative plans are the first examples of a new approach for the integrated transport and land use planning and represent the first step towards an effective integration towards new mobility patterns in cities and sustainable development of urban areas.

    Full Text Available Thanks to the scientist Paul Ekman we are now able to assess the type of influence that our non-verbal behaviour has on other people: we can now judge the ability of people to send non-verbal signals and know how to interpret them. We recognize that information provided by words in some cases is contradicted and refuted by the non-verbal expressions that accompany it, and that, when one cannot use words, information can be communicated through non-verbal signs. The emotions are states of mind associated with physiological and psychophysiological changes, with internal or external stimuli, or with natural or learned behaviour. They are associated with mood, temperament, personality and disposition, and motivation. In most cases, lies can be detected because of signs of hidden emotions; the more intense and varied the emotions are, the more likely it is that a lie is unintentionally betrayed. The facial expressions and body language can reveal deep emotions: the presence of a specific emotional state is indicated by a shaky voice, an alteration of tone, a sunny smile, or a furrowed brow. Unlike ordinary expressions and gestures, it is difficult to hide micro-expressions and micro-gestures. Micro-expressions express the seven universal emotions: disgust, anger, fear, sadness, happiness, surprise, and contempt. In 1990 Paul Ekman expanded this list of basic emotions, including a range of positive and negative emotions, not all encoded in facial muscles. These emotions are amusement, contempt, embarrassment, excitement, guilt, pride, relief, satisfaction, pleasure, and shame. Micro-gestures are hard to conceal too, because every little movement is like a word that has a different meaning according to the use made of it in a ‘sentence’. Therefore, in order to analyze a gesture correctly one should keep in mind the context in which it is expressed.

    Full Text Available L'articolo valuta e mette in correlazione i cambiamenti del grado di cheratinizzazione della mucosa ruminale con lo stato corporeo di ovini tenuti a pascolare per 20 giorni in un'area ad elevata copertura di paléo rupestre (Brachypodium rupestre. Il pascolo degli ovini in queste aree riduce il rischio di incendi boschivi. Tuttavia, l'assunzione di Brachypodium rupestre protratta per lunghi periodi può compromettere la salute generale degli animali. Lo scopo di questo studio è di determinare il periodo massimo di permanenza degli animali in queste aree. Ovini mantenuti su un pascolo semi-mesofilo sono stati utilizzati come gruppo di controllo. Nei giorni 1, 10 e 20 della sperimentazione, 5 animali di ogni gruppo sono stati sacrificati per la valutazione delle modificazioni del grado di cheratinizzazione dell'epitelio dell'atrio e del sacco ventrale del rumine. La valutazione dello stato corporeo, o body condition score (BCS, e il peso vivo (PV sono stati monitorati su altri 10 soggetti per gruppo. Il gruppo di controllo ha mostrato piccole variazioni del grado di cheratinizzazione del rumine che non hanno inciso negativamente sul BCS o sul PV. Il gruppo sperimentale ha mostrato un significativo incremento del grado di cheratinizzazione, già entro i primi dieci giorni, che ha portato ad un graduale abbassamento del BCS e ad un calo di peso tra il decimo e il ventesimo giorno. I dati ottenuti suggeriscono che al fine della prevenzione degli incendi boschivi gli ovini dovrebbero essere utilizzati a turno con periodi di permanenza nei pascoli ad alta copertura di Brachypodium rupestre non superiori ai 10-12 giorni.

    Full Text Available La valutazione delle esperienze di apprendimento che avvengono in ambienti in cui le interazioni sono mediate dalle tecnologie è una sfida ardua che deve essere affrontata con approcci adeguati. Le tecniche di Learning Analytics si sono sviluppate recentemente con l’obiettivo di fornire gli strumenti necessari per ottimizzare le esperienze di apprendimento. Queste tecniche supportano i docenti nel prendere tempestivamente quelle decisioni che rendono il processo didattico più efficace, permettendo di intervenire sull’intero processo o sui singoli studenti in modo personalizzato. Sebbene le tecniche di Learning Analytics si siano sviluppate principalmente nei contesti di alta formazione online, questo articolo mette in evidenza come l’impiego di tali tecniche può portare benefici anche nei contesti scolastici. Di fatto, in questi contesti, le tecnologie sono sempre più utilizzate per supportare le esperienze di apprendimento formali e informali, come quelle basate su dispositivi mobili, serious game e social network, e i dati generati sono sempre più numerosi, richiedendo nuovi approcci di analisi che traggono vantaggio dall’impiego delle tecniche di Learning Analytics.

    Full Text Available In the last decades, we have seen a rapid growth in the culture of prevention, safety and care for people involved in dramatic events. These calamites, both natural and human made, can have a profound effect on the mental stability of individuals and communities. These effects can have consequences on people, which may go on for days, months and even years during the recovery, rebuilding and re-establishment of an ordinary situation. Each event due to these circumstances is an emergency from a technical-practical and also human point of view. And that is because people are forced to fight in order to survive physically and emotionally in a state of dangerousness and dramatic force. During an emergency it is necessary to help people recognize normality in their own reactions, which are consequences of a situation out of ordinary. A greater focus on the emotional and cognitive component of the person involved is needed. Actually, this component proves to be very important both for the successful management of the situation - being involved in the prevention and preparation phases - and for its contribution to a mitigation of the effects of a specific event. It is widely known that during an emergency, interventions by psychologists trained to face various contexts (e.g., incidents, natural disasters and so on and able to cooperate with other professionals are needed. The aim is to promote in the people involved, both rescuers and victims, the capacity to cope with the situation, in the short term and in the long term.

  14. Dall’anticolonialismo all’anti-imperialismo yankee nei movimenti terzomondisti di fine anni Sessanta

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available The article focuses on the rise of third-worldism as a form of political solidarity with many decolonization conflicts spread in the 1950s and 1960s and its transformation in a one-sided idea of anti-imperialism that put the US foreign politics at the centre of the international stage. This kind of selective criticism – addressing the so-called yankee imperialism – grounded principally on the US military intervention in Vietnam since 1965 but eventually it evolved in a kind of ideological paradigm that made of the USA the unique cause of all problems affecting states emerged from decolonization. This ideological turn hindered a deep and wide understanding of the complex and manifold forms of entanglements that followed, replaced and in some cases occurred as new factors within the world order established in the second half of the 20th century.

    Matteo Nanni

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available L’evoluzione storico-musicale nella prima metà del Quattrocento è caratterizzata dall’internazionalizzazione della cultura musicale europea ed si pone in continuità con il processo culturale del primo umanesimo. La categoria di ‘evoluzione’ e l’idea stessa di ‘rinascita’, ovvero quella “leggenda di un progresso” (Martin Le Franc, Johannes Tinctoris discussa da Reinhard Strohm, sono concetti che oggi devono essere letti non soltanto nel senso di una omologazione stilistica, ma anche come aspetto distintivo di una ricerca d’identità culturale. Anche dal punto di vista storico-musicale siamo di fronte alla costituzione di un nuovo gusto europeo nato dalla fusione di stili e di pratiche locali che si espanderà, grazie alla trasmissione delle compilazioni manoscritte, per tutto il continente e al quale aderiranno, in maniera disomogenea, anche compositori di regioni più remote.Il Concilio di Basilea non costituisce solo un dato storico circoscrivibile agli anni in cui si svolse il sinodo, così come non è da considerarsi solo un fatto empirico riguardante la sola città della Svizzera settentrionale. Esso deve piuttosto essere assunto come un evento paradigmatico per la storia della cultura del Quattrocento. Gli incontri fra intellettuali ed artisti, l’interazione fra musicisti di diverse regioni europee che si incontravano grazie ai frequentissimi spostamenti delle corti e delle cappelle, fanno del Concilio la piattaforma virtuale sia per la ricerca di una nuova identità culturale sia per la nascita di nuovi repertori e pratiche musicali. Il Concilio trascende quindi i confini contingenti della città di Basilea trasformandosi in una vera e propria “dinamica culturale” in cui i singoli individui contribuiscono alla continua trasmissione e fusione di esperienze musicali diventando vettori di una nuova mentalità musicale che raggiunse anche gli angoli più remoti dell’Europa.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giuseppe Langella

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available In order to tell the story of the conversion of the Conte del Sagrato in Fermo e Lucia, Manzoni adheres to the Pauline model of a sudden shock, thus interpreting the event as a miraculous event in which the redeemed sinner’s role remains completely passive. In The Betrothed, however, the whole episode is being rewritten from the Augustinian model of the Confessions, which represents conversion as a slow and gradual process of crisis, full of anxiety, inner conflict, dejection and resistance, in which God calls for repentance, creates favourable opportunities, eliminates inner anguish and offers necessary help, while respecting human timing, nature and freedom. This essay reconstructs, step by step, all the stages of the conversion of the Unnamed, from his first appearance in the novel to his exit, highlighting the psychological as well as moral turning points of the process of conversion, not without repeated references to the other converts in the novel, starting with Fra Cristoforo, and Napoleon in the Fifth of May.

Si presenta questa iniziativa come un modello per la salvaguardia del patrimonio culturale del nostro Paese che è vastissimo, distribuito su numerose piccole realtà locali e spesso non adeguatamente tutelato. Il finanziamento erogato dallo Stato e dagli enti locali rappresenta, ancora oggi, la fonte di sostentamento principale per le iniziative che coinvolgono il settore dei beni culturali. Tuttavia, l’attuale congiuntura economica ha favorito la nascita e la diffusione di strumenti e modalità di finanziamento alternativi attraverso i quali poter supportare il restauro del nostro Patrimonio Culturale.

  7. L'imposizione progressiva nei paesi sottosviluppati. (Progressive taxation in underdeveloped countries

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    C. COSCIANI

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available The arguments for progressive taxation in the nineteenth century were strongly countered by reference to their harmful effects on the incentives to produce, save and invest. This position is still fairly widespread in discussions on what makes a sound fiscal policy for the underdeveloped countries today. The present article argues that progressive taxation corrects the maldistribution of national income, producing additional positive effects in a depressed economy in the process of development, especially as regards investment and the balance of payments. The considerations set out by the author suggest that in underdeveloped countries, progressive taxation must therefore not be regarded only from the point of view of national finance, but from that of the redistribution of income.JEL: E24, E62, H21, O15, F32

    Full Text Available Abstract – This chapter analyses the storytelling performance of an asylum seeker speaking in English for an international audience and recorded on a video released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The primary purpose of the study is to investigate the rhetorical structuring of the narrative in an ethnopoetic perspective (Hymes 2003, and to identify the presence (or, even more significantly, marked absence of dialogic signs of intercultural negotiation deployed in the process of conveying to a culturally diverse audience a highly culturally situated story embedded in a personal narrative of displacement. At the same time, the study also intends to contribute to the current debate on English as a Lingua Franca (ELF by addressing the issue of the inherently situated nature of ELF, and of the political and ideological implications of an ELF approach to intercultural communication in both asymmetric and (programmatically symmetric power situations. The video selected for the analysis was retrieved from the UNHCR Youtube channel and is part of a series called Storytelling: through the eyes of Refugees designed to make refugees’ stories known to the wide public and to legitimise refugees as a category of people endowed with agentivity and self-determination, and with the power of contributing to the discursive construction of their own role and status. Because of their global outreach, these videos qualify as instances of ELF usage in a broad international context and are eminently suited to the investigation and discussion of ELF approaches to conventionally asymmetric institutional communication.

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available I centri storici minori sono dei monumenti d’ambiente da salvaguardare perché vulnerabili sia dal punto di vista sismico che ambientale. La gestione di queste realtà urbane è particolarmente complessa a causa dell’eterogeneità dei dati relativi alle singole unità edilizie, aggregati strutturali e intero ambito urbano. Negli ultimi anni i sistemi parametrici BIM hanno dato un enorme contributo alla progettazione, pianificazione, costruzione etc. di nuovi edifici e anche alla gestione del patrimonio culturale. L’obiettivo di questo lavoro è lo sviluppo del sistema Historical Town Building Information Modeling (HT_BIM, ovvero di un sistema BIM specifico per gli aggregati di edifici storici che, sulla base del rilievo, consente di individuare vulnerabilità legate sia ad aspetti strutturali sia a fenomeni di degrado da vento e soleggiamento.

  14. Rovesciamento e alterazione nei racconti Uranio, Vanadio e in Auschwitz, Città Tranquilla

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fausto Maria Greco

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available Ne Il sistema periodico accade che i processi dell’alterazione e del rovesciamento investano le funzioni stesse della narrazione e della testimonianza. In Uranio il personaggio di Bonino, narratore inattendibile, è un doppio rovesciato di Primo Levi. Egli realizza uno degli incubi dello scrittore torinese, quello di raccontare l’esperienza vissuta nel lager e di non essere creduto, ma l’effetto di rovesciamento riguarda anche altri versanti della scrittura. Come Elie Wiesel nel racconto intitolato Barbara, incluso nella raccolta de L’ebreo errante del 1966, Levi prende le distanze, in Uranio, da una memoria che falsifica, che oltrepassa la barriera della verità per costruire un’immagine eroica dei sopravvissuti. Nell’opera di Levi le figure di doppi rovesciati segnalano rischi incombenti, ipotesi inquietanti; i processi di alterazione, invece, si adattano meglio allo sforzo di conoscenza che riguarda l’universo concentrazionario. In questo rapporto stanno il Bonino di Uranio e il Cerrato di Argento, il dottor Müller di Vanadio (ancora ne Il sistema periodico e l’ingegner Mertens del racconto di Auschwitz, città tranquilla (pubblicato nell’84 e aggiunto ai Racconti e saggi. Dietro i nomi di Müller e di Mertens si celano, però, figure in carne e ossa con le quali lo scrittore è entrato in contatto. Il capovolgimento rivela un’ipotesi provocatoria, una vertigine del pensiero, nel caso di Mertens; l’alterazione apre alla conoscenza etica nella vicenda di Müller.The study focuses on the methods of alteration and overturning that influence functions of narration and testimony in Primo Levi’s Il sistema periodico (1975. In the short story Uranio, the character of Bonino is an unreliable storyteller as well as an overturned double of the writer. Bonino represents one of Levi’s obsessions, i.e., not being believed when telling the experience of prison and extermination camps. The effect of overturning also regards other aspects of Levi’s writing: as in the case of Elie Wiesel in the novel Barbara, published in the collection Le chant des morts (1966, in Uranio Levi distances himself from the use of memory that distorts its contents and crosses the borders of truth in order to describe survivors as heroes. In Levi’s works, such overturned doubles as Bonino reveal menacing risks and disturbing events. Conversely, the processes of alteration and distortion which can be inscribed to the character of Cerrato, in the short story Argento, better conform to the writer’s struggle for knowledge of the universe of extermination camps. Beside Bonino and Cerrato, the same comparison can be established between Doktor Müller of Vanadio and the chemical engineer Mertens of Auschwitz, città tranquilla (published in 1984 and included in the collection Racconti e saggi. These characters are based on people Levi really met or dealt with. By analyzing Vanadio and Auschwitz, città tranquilla, the study aims to show how, as for Mertens, overturning reveals a provocative hypothesis, while alteration contributes to ethical knowledge in the case of Müller. PAROLE CHIAVEPrimo Levi; Elie Wiesel; rovesciamento; alterazione; narratore (attendibile/inattendibile; narrazione; testimonianza; doppio; lager; memoria.

  15. La costruzione culturale della vita materiale: dono strategico, economie e relazioni informali nei mercati pubblici

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Silvia Lelli

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available After a short theoretical introduction that highlights how field research in public street markets provides a contribution to economic-anthropological theories, street markets turn out to be characterized by a dense social interaction, and by complex intersections of multidirectional policies: within them, the effects of economic and administrative macro-policies imposed 'from above' are visible and, at the same time, in reverse, we can detect here aspects of the local social construction that from grass root level influences the exterior, both in forms of organized resistance against disadvantageous imposed policies, and by spontaneously shaping the social interaction pattern and the identity of the urban neighbourhoods where markets are sited. As arenas in which the possibility and the ability 'to negotiate' symbolic as well as economic values is constantly reproduced, the cultural 'immaterial' component of 'material' life is evident in public markets. As contexts in which different economies – capitalist and non-monetary, formal and informal, where the gift is a social and commercial strategy – are simultaneously ongoing, as spaces of interaction between highly heterogeneous socio-economical classes, between solidarity and exploitation, consumerism, reuse and saving, street markets are aggregates of apparently contradictory, but complementary social qualities. Such ‘disorder’ often makes them target of gentrification, transformation or limitations attempts, but the complexity of their polyhedral configuration seems to guarantee their persistence in history, as resistant forms of socioeconomical exchange, and rare contexts of urban social construction.

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Stoccaggio e trasporto merci hanno assunto, già da alcuni anni, un ruolo rilevante nell’area orientale di Napoli, con impatti significativi sulla qualità urbana ed ambientale dell’area. In quest’area, anche grazie alla sua vicinanza ai principali nodi della mobilità (porto, aeroporto, stazione ferroviaria e alla significativa presenza di aree produttive dismesse o in dismissione, trovano oggi spazio numerose attività di stoccaggio e spedizione merci, in molti casi localizzate all’interno di ex aree industriali, in assenza di una reale ottica “sistemica”. Pertanto, a partire da una breve disamina dell’evoluzione dell’area orientale e di quanto previsto dagli strumenti urbanistici vigenti per la sua trasformazione, il contributo focalizza l’attenzione sul ruolo attuale dslle attività di stoccaggio e trasporto merci nell’area. Quindi, sulla base di alcune recenti esperienze di italiane e in riferimento ad ipotesi già avanzate per l’organizzazione di una piattaforma logistica nell’area orientale di Napoli -quale strumento per ottimizzare le necessità di stoccaggio e trasporto merci riducendone le esternalità negative- valuta la compatibilità di tali scelte con le prospettive di evoluzione/trasformazione dell’area e il potenziale ruolo che l’area potrebbe svolgere in una prospettiva di ri-organizzazione del trasporto merci in ambito urbano.

    2002-03-01

    Full Text Available Alprazolam is a triazolo analog of the 1,4 benzodiazepine class, widely used to treat patients with anxiety disorder, panic attacks and anxiety comorbidity with depressive disorder. Following oral administration, alprazolam is readily absorbed with peack plasma levels in 2 hours; extensive hepatic metabolism occurs and about 80% of the oral dose is excreted by kidney. The main metabolic route is hydroxylation catalyzed by cytochrome P450 3A: alpha-hydroxy alprazolam is partially active. Alprazolam possesses anxiolytic properties similar to other benzodiazepines; however, the triazolo ring confers to alprazolam a peculiar antidepressant and antipanic activity. Anxiety disorder, panic attacks with or without agoraphobia, and mixed anxiety-depressive disorder represent an heavy economic burden to National Health System (NHS and to society. In the present work the clinical pharmacology and the therapeutic profile of alprazolam are reviewed and analysed under the pharmacoeconomic perspectives of the italian patients, General Practitioners, NHS and society.

    Full Text Available In a wide-ranging theoretical framework, principally based upon discourse analysis and the studies on language and identity, this article explores the construction of identity in a corpus of oral narratives collected among the Spanish speaking communities in Milan, by means of sociolinguistic and biographic interviews, seen as a complex event in which both parties act as active participant-observers. The study focuses on the features of these life stories, taking into account the ways in which the immigrants compare the two worlds an collocates themselves between the two cultures, the function of code-switching, the linguistic expression of ‘agency’ (Giddens 1979 and the use of deictics.

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available This essay analyses the literary, ethical and religious principles on the basis of which four eighteenth-century Dante commentators chose to extrapolate and mention excerpts from Orlando Furioso. Francesco Laino, Giovannantonio Volpi, Pompeo Venturi and Baldassarre Lombardi contributed to sanction the editorial and didactic fortune of the Ariostean poem, without excluding any extreme forms of preventative censorship. Their exercises in rewriting and textual/interpretative criticism had a profound and scarcely examined influence both on the construction of the nineteenth-century national canon and the revision of the traditional tools of linguistic/literary analysis, such as the Crusca vocabulary which Vincenzo Monti and Giacomo Leopardi discussed afresh.

    Full Text Available I due Neomys italiani sono ancora da chiarire dal punto di vista della loro caratterizzazione morfologica e ecologica. Il lavoro prende in considerazione un campione di entrambe le specie proveniente da habitat forestali dell?Appennino settentrionale per i quali sono stati identificati i principali parametri ambientali. Vengono quindi descritte la variabilità dei tratti morfologici delle due specie in aree localizzate nel Parco Nazionale Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna nell?Appennino tosco-romagnolo. Risultano di sicuro effetto discriminatorio la maschera facciale, il rapporto piede posteriore/coda e i caratteri cranici. Sulla base dei criteri identificativi si sono realizzate rilevazioni di misure corporee per le due specie e una comparazione degli habitat utilizzati. N. fodiens appare unica specie nelle faggete-abetine e dominante nei castagneti, mentre nell?Ontaneta e nelle zone aperte e termofile si registra la sola presenza di N. anomalus. Mancano entrambi nei prati cespugliati, nella pecceta e nella cerreta. I gradienti presenti sono quindi illustrati. Non appare una differenza altitudinale nel campione esaminato, posto in stazioni tra i 400 e i 1300 m, ma per entrambe vi sono maggiori riscontri nella fascia tra 700 e 850 m. Nell?analisi multivariata rispetto alle altre specie e alle variabili ambientali si riscontra sempre una discreta correlazione con la presenza di acqua di una certa ampiezza, che comunque è significativa solo per N. fodiens, mentre risulta di interesse la positiva correlazione di N. anomalus con Apodemus sylvaticus.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available Nel secolo scorso, e in special modo negli ultimi dieci anni, la questione dei media e, in particolare, il tema della media literacy ha attratto l’interesse delle autorità, degli studiosi e di altri responsabili nel settore educativo. Nel tempo sono entrati in uso molti concetti, ma sfortunatamente senza che ne venisse fornita una definizione, nella maggior parte dei casi. Questo articolo si focalizza sulla media literacy, su come può essere definita e sul significato di concetti affini utilizzati nel contesto finlandese. Inoltre viene discussa la relazione tra i concetti di media literacy e digital literacy e la collocazione della media literacy nei curricula scolastici in Finlandia. Il contributo affronta anche il problema della valutazione della media literacy nelle politiche istituzionali e chiude con un accenno alle prospettive future di ricerca nel campo dell’educazione ai media. Trattandosi di un lavoro di ampio respiro sulla media literacy, si riferisce sia a iniziative politiche che ai risultati della ricerca e alle pratiche educative.

  12. I sistemi biometrici lo sviluppo dei mercati negli Usa, UE e nel mondo. La normativa frena quello italiano

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Franco Zucchetti

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available Negli ultimi anni il settore biometrico sta compiendo, a livello mondiale, importanti passi in avanti soprattutto in termini di sviluppo e di diffusione. Questo trend positivo riguarda il mondo anglosassone e, in particolare, la realtà statunitense dove i sistemi biometrici vengono utilizzati, nelle più svariate situazioni, sia come controllo della sicurezza fisica delle persone, sia come terminali per l’autorizzazione all’accesso. La stessa diffusione non è riscontrabile nella maggior parte dei Paesi europei e in Italia dove raffrontiamo una realtà assai atipica nella quale la biometria fa un gran parlare di sé ma, in concreto, viene utilizzata con molta difficoltà. Tuttavia, un punto di contatto tra tutti gli attori europei ed extraeuropei può essere individuato nello sviluppo del settore relativo al riconoscimento biometrico applicato ai passaporti ed alle carte di identità. Il processo di globalizzazione ha generato, infatti, grandi masse di individui in continuo e costante movimento da un Paese all’altro e, contestualmente, ha prodotto una crescente domanda di sicurezza soprattutto nei confronti della minaccia terroristica. Appare chiaro, quindi, come l’identificazione certa delle persone diventi una necessità e debba presentare tecnologie simili per essere utilizzate ovunque.

    New regulations on emission from waste incineration are under consideration of European Union. Besides hazardous waste - which is already the object of a 1994 directive - the new regulations will apply to all kinds of incinerated waste, with a net advantage of about 5000 milliard liras. As far as Italy is concerned, there shouldn't be a great change as regulations on the matter are, for many aspects, more advanced that those of other European countries. A specific regulation will deal with co-incineration, that is with waste used as fuel in plants producing electric energy. [Italian] L'Unione Europea ha allo studio una nuova normativa per disciplinare le emissioni legate all'incineramento dei rifiuti. Ad essere regolati saranno non solo quelli pericolosi, gia' oggetto di una direttiva del 1994, ma tutti i rifiuti smaltiti attraverso l'incenerimento. Le nuove regole dovrebbero portare un vantaggio netto di circa 5000 miliardi di lire. Per l'Italia non dovrebbe cambiare molto visto che la normativa in materia e' per molti aspetti piu' avanzata di quella di altri stati europei. Una disciplina a parte viene prevista per il coincenerimento, vale a dire per i rifiuti utilizzati come combustibile, sia nei cementifici che negli impianti per la produzione di energia elettrica.

    An experimental campaign on plate heat exchangers, used as evaporators and condenser in domestic refrigeration loops is presented in this paper. The research's purpose is to test the influence of some thermal-hydraulic parameters on the global overall heat transfer coefficient. R134a, R407C, R410A, and R22 are the fluids tested under reference thermal conditions. The experimental tests allows one to withdraw conclusions on the substitution effect on the thermal and global efficiency of the plant. Also, a new method for calculating the thermodynamical mixture parameters is applied to the condensation of mixtures R407C and R410A and its benefit evaluated. The refrigerant loop overall performance and the condenser global heat transfer coefficient are the parameters chosen to enlighten the characteristics of the alternative refrigerants (R134a, R407C, and R410A) with respect to the fluid that they are supposed to substitute (R22). [Italian] Scambiatori a piastre compatti impiegati come evaporatori e condensatori nei circuiti frigoriferi, sono l'oggetto della ricerca presentata in questo articolo. L'efficienza termica di tali componenti e' valutata in condizioni di riferimento commerciali. I refrigeranti utilizzati sono tre fluidi proposti per sostituire l'R22, un Hcfc, attualmente il refrigerante piu' utilizzato nel condizionamento ambientale. Una serie di prove condotte con quest'ultimo fluido consente di studiare gli effetti della sostituzione del fluido di progetto sulle prestazioni sia degli scambiatori, sia piu' in generale, dell'intero circuito frigorifero. In particolare sono state studiate le prestazioni di due coppie di evaporatori e condensatori in termini di coefficiente globale di scambio termico e di Cop dell'impianto. Nel presente lavoro e' inoltre presentato e utilizzato un metodo termodinamico per il calcolo della temperatura di saturazione per le miscele zeotropiche in bifase; uno dei refrigeranti

    Full Text Available ItLa possibilità di accedere al Web mediante dispositivi mobili, ad esempio tablet o smartphone, ha comportato la creazione di ulteriori portali, semplificati, che consentono di diffondere contenuti ed informazione in maniera rapida ai propri utenti. Nel caso del servizio di Emeroteca Virtuale Mobile si è voluto ampliare la gamma dei servizi offerti all’utenza, includendo una piattaforma che fosse navigabile attraverso i browser disponibili nei moderni smart phone. L’analisi dei loro comportamenti ci ha permesso di verificare quanto gli utenti preferiscano i contesti mobili come ambienti di rapida verifica delle novità disponibili in Emeroteca, relativamente ai periodici di loro interesse (4 a 1 è infatti il rapporto tra la navigazione e la ricerca dei contenuti. Ciò chiarisce il ruolo che tale servizio sta assumendo nel contesto dell’Emeroteca, non alternativo a quello classico, ma, pur se ancora non privo di una sua connotazione sperimentale, certamente complementare a quest’ultimo.EnThe diffusion of the so called smart-phone and tablet among WEB users community caused a growth in the offering of specific portals, simplified comparing to the classic ones, but capable of a more direct and fast information flow towards their own users. Emeroteca Virtuale service too has been provided of a specific “mobile” portal dedicated to people having a smart-phone as a web access tool. Last two years usage data analysis on this service has revealed a peculiar behavior of Emeroteca Virtuale Mobile users: they tend to use the service as a rapid check of new entries in Emeroteca (issues or articles, specifically for those e-journals they are interested in (the ratio between browsing and search actions is 4 to 1. This clarifies better the role this “mobile” service is having versus the classical one: it is not an alternative to it, but a complementary way to get information from Emeroteca.

    A partire da un punto di vista semantico più che morfologico, l'articolo è focalizzato il problema del significato dei nomi propri, con contributi della filosofia del linguaggio e della linguistica semantica. Sono indagate le entità individuali: il loro isolamento all’interno della rete di soggetti e la relazione esemplificativa, il trattamento nelle classificazioni. Le profonde diversità rilevate fra concetti e entità denominate suggeriscono di dichiararle esplicitamente da un punto di vista teorico e di adottare dispositivi che diano risultati unitari ma chiaramente distinguibili nei sistemi di recupero dell’informazione.

Individual entities are explored: the way they are isolated in the thread of subjects, the illustrative relation, and the classification treatment. The deep differences between concepts and called entities suggest to declare them specifically in a theoretical way, and to adopt devices that lead to uniform but noticeable results in information retrieval systems.

    Here are presented and discussed the data concerning the concentration of vanadium in some soils of Tolfa mountains. The aim of this study was to evaluate the fall out connected with the emissions of the oil power plants of Civitavecchia. The authors have analysed the considered by us elements V, Ti, Mn, Al and Si, using the instrumental neutron activation analysis. The vanadium because is presented in the oil in higher concentrations in comparison with the other elements and so as an element which characterizes the emissions, while Ti, Mn, Al and Si, due to their terrestrial origin, are useful to put in evidence the contribution due to the lithological component. From the obtained data and in agreement with the theoretical estimations according to the atmospheric fall out, the authors convinced that during the operating time of the oil power plants of Civitavecchia, one can not observe appreciable variations of vanadium in some soils of Tolfa mountains. The obtained data can be useful in the other future studies which will aim to evaluate the entity of the contribution of such elements coming from the oil power plants of Civitavecchia.

    Full Text Available Spatial Metaphors for Self-knowledge in the dialogues of H.S Skovoroda. Patristic Sources In this paper the Author analyzes some spatial metaphors informing H.S. Skovoroda’s representation of self-knowledge as a dynamic process. Knowledge of the true self – which is one of the recurring themes in the Ukrainian philosopher’s oeuvre – is often portrayed as tension between open (e.g. streets, markets, the sky, the planets… and closed spaces (e.g. the house, the room, with the ‘home’ being a symbol for the soul. As man seeking communion with God has to abandon what lies outside his inner self, the authentic gnoseological process is represented as an introverted movement through symbolic space. Broadly speaking, this very opposition harks back to Philo of Alexandria and Patristic thought, whose anti-physicist stance shaped their rejection of the phenomenological world as an ‘interior vs. exterior’ contrast. Furthermore, the broader biblical context in which those spatial terms appear is also taken into account, while demonstrating Skovoroda’s partial dependence on Patristic models. The fi nal part of the paper argues that the scheme underlying Neo-platonic emanation – which is itself to be considered as an oscillation between unity and dispersion – appears to be a symbolic model for Skovoroda’s spatial representation of self-knowledge.

The drop-out evaluation is also important considering the relevant economic impact for NHS of an antipsychotic therapy discontinuation in terms of patient hospitalization and other related healthcare resources consumption. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the differences in the rates of drop-out from clinical trials between olanzapine and aripiprazole. METHODS: Literature search was based on MEDLINE, on Iowa-IDIS and Drugdex databases (1966-Dec 2004. Analysis included 12 randomized controlled trials (3.778 patients, 8 for olanzapine (2.559 patients and 4 for aripiprazole (1.219 patients. RCT inclusion criteria were: a Patients affected by schizophrenia; b Randomized assignment to olanzapine or aripiprazole treatment group; c Number of patients included in the treatment group higher than 100; d Drop-out frequency evaluation between 4th and 26th weeks of follow-up. RESULTS: The rate of treatment discontinuation was greater for aripiprazole than for olanzapine (42,2% vs. 31,6% respectively. The comparison between drop-out percentages is statistically significant (p<0,001. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of drop-outs was better controlled in the olanzapine group of studies than in the aripiprazole group of studies.

  12. Intra and Interspecific Variations of Gene Expression Levels in Yeast Are Largely Neutral: (Nei Lecture, SMBE 2016, Gold Coast).

    It is commonly, although not universally, accepted that most intra and interspecific genome sequence variations are more or less neutral, whereas a large fraction of organism-level phenotypic variations are adaptive. Gene expression levels are molecular phenotypes that bridge the gap between genotypes and corresponding organism-level phenotypes. Yet, it is unknown whether natural variations in gene expression levels are mostly neutral or adaptive. Here we address this fundamental question by genome-wide profiling and comparison of gene expression levels in nine yeast strains belonging to three closely related Saccharomyces species and originating from five different ecological environments. We find that the transcriptome-based clustering of the nine strains approximates the genome sequence-based phylogeny irrespective of their ecological environments. Remarkably, only ∼0.5% of genes exhibit similar expression levels among strains from a common ecological environment, no greater than that among strains with comparable phylogenetic relationships but different environments. These and other observations strongly suggest that most intra and interspecific variations in yeast gene expression levels result from the accumulation of random mutations rather than environmental adaptations. This finding has profound implications for understanding the driving force of gene expression evolution, genetic basis of phenotypic adaptation, and general role of stochasticity in evolution. © The Author 2017.

    Full Text Available In the era of hand-press printing, variations among the copies of a single edition was the norm rather than the exception. Indeed, no single copy would ever be identical to another, but rather each one would be unique. These differences were due not only to the marks and features that each item acquired after leaving the printing shop, according to the hands through which it passed, but also to the features that accumulated during the printing process itself. These characteristics could be of two kinds: conscious variants, either when the printer made stop-press corrections to typesetting errors or other mistakes that had been missed during proof reading or to add later corrections by the editor or author; unconscious variants when they were the result of unnoticed mistakes made by the printer himself. In the preparation of her dissertation for a degree in Bibliography, the author made a census of the surviving examples of Italian-German lexicons recorded in Italian incunabula production and described them. The conscious and unconscious printing errors collated are analyzed in this paper.

    1997-03-01

    Nowadays one of the most important deterioration regarding the environment comes from the high production of solid waste and the way of approaching their management. In Italy (in this report the authors examine in particular the case of Rome) there is still a situation of low efficacy (very few instruments) and low efficiency (costs/benefits ratio) in household waste management. As it results from the analysis of more advanced European examples,, the waste management policy must be based on two key factors: quantity control and reduction, on the one side, and specific instruments for different type/quality of waste on the other side. In order to manage the waste quantity and quality it is necessary to modify consumer and producer behaviour. Only new behaviour models and technical innovation in all production sectors can reduce the problem upstream, because all downstream processes, however sophisticated, are expensive and have a negative environmental impact. There are three instruments to produce an efficient and integrated policy of waste management: a system of pricing (Tax and subsidy), prohibitions in some cases, but especially information and education.

  14. Il particolare italiano da Guicciardini a Banfield. Tra l’autoriconoscimento e l’etero-riconoscimento

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pierluca Birindelli

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available Nel 1958 la pubblicazione dell’indagine di Edward Banfield The Moral Basis of a Backward Society, suscitò un fervente dibattito nella comunità dei sociologi italiani e stranieri — la disputa sull’amoral familism, il concetto esplicativo centrale, è ancora aperta. Considerare primigenia l’interpretazione dello studioso statunitense è tuttavia un errore. Ampliando lo sguardo analitico si rintracciano spiegazioni analoghe e di gran lunga antecedenti dell’arretratezza sociale, economica e politica italiana: il “paese del tornaconto personale” di Leon Battista Alberti; il particulare di Guicciardini. L’idea di una mancanza strutturale (culturale? di senso civico da parte degli italiani affonda nei secoli e appartiene innanzitutto al momento dell’auto-riconoscimento identitario. Solo in un secondo tempo, con le note di viaggio del Grand Tour, questa rappresentazione entra a far parte dell’etero-riconoscimento nordeuropeo e molti anni dopo nordamericano. Quando un tratto identitario ottiene un “doppio riconoscimento” di così lunga durata, diviene un tòpos, un punto cardinale delle rappresentazioni individuali e collettive di un popolo. Chi sostiene tesi contrarie a Banfield si deve misurare con un altro ostacolo: la forza retorica dell’espressione “familismo amorale”. Tentare di costruire nuove e altrettanto efficaci locuzioni sintetiche, ovviamente frutto di buone interpretazioni teoriche, pare l’imprescindibile via ermeneutica da imboccare.

    In this technical report the results of a first mycological research carried out from 1989 to 1990 in Brasimone in the high Bolognan Appennines (Northern Italy) are shown. The study was taken up by making a comparison between the fungus community living in forest plots with different vegetation; in particular, the mycocenosis of plots reforested with Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga (Mirb.) Franco) with those of Beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and Cestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) woods were compared. The results show that the specific richness clearly decreases form mixed broad-leaved forest (90 species) to the mono specific plantation of P. menziesii (41 species). Particularly in the artificial plantation with exotic trees, there are few symbiont species while the saprophytic wood and litter fungi abound in relationship with the large bulk of undecomposed vegetable material present in these habitats.

    The traditional systems of water depuration are often responsible of undesirable ecological problems. In fact, the oxidation of pollutants due to standard sewage treatments may induce the overproduction of nutrients. Therefore the wastewater effluents may cause the eutrofication of receiving water bodies. To avoid aftereffects on life conditions of aquatic organisms, nutrient retention based on microphytes and macrophytes abilities is often utilized after traditional sewage treatments. As a matter of fact, in many countries the phytodepuration basins or artificial wetlands have been designed to receive primary and/or secondary wastewater effluents or are used directly for depuration of wastewater of small towns and/or effluents of small industries. In this report they take into account the main biological features of the common techniques of natural water depuration.

In particular, the author considers the data on the cost of labour in Italy. The data is brought up to date for 1963 and 1964 to show the changes that have taken place in Italy’s position with respect to previous years. While in the surveys tom 1959 and 1960 Italy was shown to have the lowest labour cost among Common Market countries, it now comes in first in the classification and has in almost every case registered a labour cost very near to the highest figure.JEL: E24, J30

    Full Text Available Secondo il New Public Management, tutti i settori della pubblica amministrazione devono essere in grado di misurare le loro performance secondo una visione multi-dimensionale. I musei pubblici – statali, civici, universitari, ecc. – sono spesso una parte di una pubblica amministrazione, perciò i loro dati contabili e di bilancio sono “confusi” con quelli dell’ente proprietario. Questo produce un doppio effetto negativo. Da un lato, è arduo quantificare esattamente le risorse pubbliche trasferite al museo e, dall’altro, è impossibile misurare direttamente le attività e le performance economiche, patrimoniali e finanziarie. La ricerca, di natura esplorativa, propone una metodologia per ovviare ad entrambi questi inconvenienti. Il metodo di ricerca è prevalentemente deduttivo. L’articolo, dopo un’analisi delle principali teorie e tecniche di misurazionedelle performance e la costruzione diun modello teorico, termina con un’analisi critica del modello.   According to New Public Management’s principles, all sectors of public administrationmust check their annual performance from multiple perspectives. Public museums – state, municipal, or university museums to give just a few examples – are often part of the administrative and accounting data and are therefore often mixed up with the museum’s owner. The result is doubly negative. On the one hand, it is extremely difficult to quantify the public resources transferred to the museum. On the other hand, it is impossible to keep track of its annual economic, financial and assets performance. The research is exploratory and suggests a methodology attempting to solve both problems. The research method is mainly deductive. The paper begins with an analysis of the mainstream theories and techniques for performance measurement, then it proposes a theoretical model and finally a critical analysis of that model.

    LIBS (Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) is a new spectroscopic technique suitable to the use in the analysis of samples of environmental interest, such as soils and rocks, and of industrial interest, such as alloys. Results dealing with the application of the technique to heterogeneous soil samples certified by Ispra Joint Research Centre in the contest of heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) with an agronomical interest are presented in this report. In the LIBS technique, a high power laser beam is focused onto the sample in order to generate a small volume of plasma at its surface. Emissions from single atomic species are collected by a lens system coupled to an optical fiber bundle, dispersed on a monochromator and analyzed by an iCCD. the identification and the assignment of emission lines relevant to single atomic species allows to determine the sample elemental composition and, after calibration against reference samples, to perform quantitative analysis for a large number of species. This technique requires no sample pre-treatment, a part from eventually compacting powders by mechanical press. This is a considerable advantage with respect to traditional spectroscopic techniques, such as the ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) which needs sample mineralization by acid attack. Measurements performed on soil samples by means of the LIBS technique at ENEA Frascati were compared with the results obtained by ICP, which is considered a traditional technique for this kind of analysis. Results showed a general overestimation of the LIBS values with respect to the ICP ones, probably due to differences in lytologic matrix between the analyzed samples and the standard. The phenomenon is usually referred to the matrix effect, which is held responsible for the deviation from linearity between single element concentration and its row intensity. The effect is due to local plasma density variations and limit the correlation between the plasma elemental composition and the sample upon which the analytic use of LIBS technique relays. RSD % (Relative Standard Deviation) for LIBS and ICP data have been compared. LIBS values appeared systematically higher than the ICP ones. Also the correlation coefficients, calculated as the ratio between certified value and experimental one, both for LIBS and ICP, were considerably less close to one for LIBS than for ICP. In order to minimize the matrix effect, a model for correcting LIBS data by taking into account the plasma temperature experimentally determined both in the unknown and in the standard sample was introduced. Preliminary results showed a considerable improvement in the correlation coefficients for corrected LIBS data. Once the model validity is proven for different elements used in the plasma temperature determination, which is possible once known all the parameters of Boltzmann equation for experimental intensity spectral line, it is quite general and can be applied on all the samples and for all the elements. [Italian] Il LIBS (Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) e' una tecnica spettroscopica sperimentale che trova applicazione nell'analisi di campioni di interesse ambientale, quali suoli e rocce, ed industriali, come leghe metalliche. In questo rapporto sono presentati i risultati dell'applicazione della tecnica a campioni eterogenei di suoli certificati dal Joint Research Centre di Ispra (Varese) per la valutazione delle concentrazioni di metalli pesanti di interesse agronomico (Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn). Nella tecnica LIBS, un impulso laser d'alta potenza e' focalizzato sul campione in modo da provocare sulla superficie dello stesso un piccolo volume di plasma. Le emissioni delle singole specie atomiche sono raccolte da fibra ottica e analizzate da un monocromatore e da un analizzatore ottico (iCCD). Il riconoscimento e l'assegnazione delle emissioni spettrali corrispondenti ai singoli elementi atomici permette di riconoscere la composizione elementale del campione e, mediante l'utilizzo di emissioni di campioni a concentrazione nota, di risalire alle concentrazioni delle singole specie del campione. Il grande vantaggio di questa tecnica e' che non e' richiesto alcun trattamento del campione (come invece e' il caso in tecniche spettroscopiche tradizionali quale l'ICP, Inductively Coupled Plasma, che richiede la mineralizzazione del campione tramite attacco acido con acqua regia), se non il semplice compattamento tramite pressa meccanica. I risultati ottenuti dall'applicazione della tecnica LIBS al centro ricerche ENEA di Frascati sui campioni di suolo sono stati analizzati per confronto con i risultati ottenuti con una tecnica tradizionale quale l'ICP. Si osserva una sistematica sovrastima del valore LIBS rispetto a quello ICP, probabilmente imputabile alle differenze di matrice litologiche tra i campioni analizzati e quelli usati come riferimento.

    Full Text Available This essay deals with the birth of a practical documentation relating to the current managing of direct taxation in several communes of the principality of Savoy-Achaea, in Piedmont (particularly Moncalieri, Pinerolo and Turin, between the end of the 13th century and the first half of the 14th century. The increase in the tax burden of the prince on communities stimulated the development of the structure and contents of municipal accounting records. On the one hand there was a gradual tendency for writing the majority of the collection and audit operations carried out by municipal officers. On the other hand, the accounting records were organized as a coherent system of thematic registers, tied to one another by functional links and intertextuality. After 1330 a municipal finance crisis caused an increase of political functions attributed to accounting records, as an instrument of control over the fiscal behaviour of citizens; an effect of this situation was the production of registers dedicated to lists of tax evaders.

    Full Text Available Saale und Elbe bilden im Wesentlichen die westliche Begrenzung des ehemals kompakten altsorbischen Sprachgebietes. Im Norden schließt das Altsorbische an das Altpolabische, im Osten und Südosten an das Polnische und Tschechische an. Eigennamen bilden eine wichtige Quelle sowohl für die Aufhellung der Geschichte der Besiedlung wie auch ethnischer, sprachlicher und sozialer Verhältnisse, denn historische Siedlungsprozesse fanden ihren Niederschlag u.a. in historischen Belegen von Namen. Diese Belege wie auch die Ableitungsbasen und Benennungsmotive ebenso wie die phonologischen und morphologischen Merkmale der Namen des altsorbischen Kontaktgebietes enthalten eine Vielzahl von Zeugnissen deutsch-slawischer Kontinuität. Auf der Grundlage umfangreicher Studien zu Ortsnamen stellt der Beitrag ausgewählte Beispiele vor. Im ehemals altsorbischen Kontaktgebiet können Ortsnamen (Siedlungsnamen und ihre historische Überlieferung Hinweise auf Siedlungs- und Sprachkontakt geben. Dies belegen eine ganze Reihe von Merkmalen, so z.B.: 1. Unterscheidende Bestimmungswörter 2. Parallele Namengebung mit zeitweiliger Mehrnamigkeit 3. Umbenennung 4. Übersetzung 5.

  12. Use by small mammals of short-rotation plantations in relation to their structure and isolation

    Full Text Available Abstract Over the last decades, dramatic changes in agricultural practices have led to important modifications of land-use, as well as landscape structure, and to a general biodiversity loss in agro-ecosystems. During 2008 we investigated the small mammal communities of Short Rotation Forestry (SRF stands in Northern Italy. We live-trapped small mammals, during summer and autumn, in different types of SRF stands and surrounding habitats and compared capture rates. We evaluated the influence on small mammals abundance of the distance between the stands and other habitats offering woody or bushy cover. Our results showed that SRF plantations are widely exploited by small mammals, especially in autumn and that capture rate is the highest in “double-row” stands. The distance from woods or other arboriculture stands was negatively correlated to small mammals abundance. We conclude that SRF plantations can be considered a suitable habitat for small mammals and may work as a “corridor habitat” between fragmented patches of suitable habitats.
    Riassunto Uso degli impianti a turno breve da parte dei micrommamiferi, in relazione alla loro struttura e isolamento Negli ultimi decenni profondi cambiamenti nelle pratiche agricole hanno causato modifiche nella tipologia di uso dei terreni, così come nella struttura del paesaggio, che hanno portato a una generale perdita di biodiversità negli agroecosistemi. Nel corso del 2008 abbiamo studiato le comunità di micromammiferi nelle piantagioni di pioppo per la produzione di biomassa (SRF nel Nord Italia. Con l’uso di live-traps abbiamo effettuato due sessioni di cattura, una estiva e una autunnale, nei diversi tipi di impianto delle SRF e negli ambienti circostanti, per comparare le frequenze di cattura. Abbiamo quindi analizzato l’influenza che la distanza tra i diversi ambienti con copertura arborea ha sull’abbondanza dei micromammiferi

    Obiettivi: misurare la direzione e l’entità delle disuguaglianze socio-economiche nell’abitudine al fumo in Italia durante gli ultimi due decenni, con attenzione sia al livello nazionale che macro-regionale.

    Metodi: sono stati utilizzati dati provenienti da sei indagini ISTAT sullo stato di salute dal 1980 al 2000. Abbiamo usato il livello di istruzione come indicatore dello stato socio-economico. Per ogni indagine e livello di analisi (nazionale e macroregionale, è stata calcolata la prevalenza, standardizzata per età, del consumo di tabacco in diversi gruppi sociali.

    Per ottenere una misura di sintesi delle disuguaglianze, abbiamo stimato l’Odds Ratio (OR ed il Relative Index of Inequality (con intervallo di confidenza al 95% attraverso un’analisi di regressione logistica.

    Risultati: negli uomini di età compresa tra 25 e 49 anni, l’Odds Ratio del consumo di tabacco di una persona con un basso livello di istruzione confrontata con una di un alto livello è risultato pari a 1,26 (IC 95%: 1,16 - 1,37 nel 1980 ed a 1,71 (IC 95%: 1,62 - 1,80 nel 2000. Nelle donne della stessa fascia di età, l’associazione tra stato sociale ed abitudine al fumo si è trasformata da positiva (OR=0,43 in negativa (OR=1,12. Nelle donne più anziane, la prevalenza di fumatrici è risultata maggiore tra quelle più istruite, con un gap tra classi sociali che si restringe nel tempo. Nel periodo considerato le stime degli OR sono risultate costantemente inferiori nel Sud rispetto al Centro ed al Nord Italia, nonostante la somiglianza nei trend temporali nelle differenti macro-regioni.

    Conclusioni: le disuguaglianze tra gruppi sociali sono aumentate, specialmente nelle giovani generazioni. Le regioni meridionali seguono quelle del centro e nord Italia nel diffondersi dell’epidemia dell’abitudine al fumo.

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available Normal 0 14 false false false IT X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Abstract English language teaching materials usually reflect both the explicit and the implicit attitudes and beliefs of their authors, of the society and the culture of the times they live in. Attitudes and beliefs are bound to change over time and are affected by socio-cultural changes, particularly in areas such as power relationships, the image of women and that of identity construction. The first coursebook analyses in terms of women’s representations and sexist attitudes date back to the 70s and the 80s (e.g. Hartman, Judd 1978; Stern 1976; Porreca 1984; Schmitz 1975, 1984 and have been greatly influenced by language and gender studies (e.g. Sunderland 1992, 1994, 2000; Sunderland, Litosseliti 2002; Cameron 2005. This paper is aimed at presenting the results of a study on how women and their voices have been portrayed in ELT coursebooks addressed to Italian students over time. The analysis carried out in a diachronic perspective, have specifically focussed upon textbooks published between the 1950s and the beginning of the 80s in order to represent different historical perspectives. The proposed stretch in time to the 80s is aimed at investigating the most relevant shifts occurring in ELT coursebooks in the 70s as a consequence of changes in society and the influence of gender studies. The categories used to analyse the ELT materials have been: the representation (as well as the omission of women and their roles in texts and illustrations; the language used to refer to women and its role in maintaining, diminishing or reinforcing sexist values. Despite a correspondence between gender representations and ongoing changes in society, the textbooks examined appear to represent more traditional than innovative views on women.

    Full Text Available Il patrimonio cinematografi co dell’Istituto Nazionale Luce raccoglie alcune centinaia di ore di fi lmati che riguardano la storia delle mostre e dei musei del ‘900 in Italia e non solo. Sin dalla sua nascita, nel 1925, il LUCE (L’Unione Cinematografi ca Educativa inviò i suoi operatori a documentare musei, gallerie e mostre, specialmente in occasione di visite ufficiali dei sovrani e di esponenti del regime fascista. Cinegiornali e documentari didattici sono visibili on-line sul sito dell’Archivio, e parzialmente anche sul canale dedicato di YouTube. Il contributo traccia una prima ricognizione di un vasto panorama di materiali documentari e informativi, dando conto dell’uso del mezzo fi lmico per documentare le esposizioni temporanee e i musei. L’importanza del materiale del LUCE, che a partire dal 1931 diventa anche sonoro, offre uno spaccato ancora poco conosciuto di questa forma di documentazione in relazione al coevo dibattito sui musei, tra propaganda e uso pedagogico dell’immagine. Vengono esaminate modalità e strategie di presentazione visive e testuali distinguendo tra gli i musei di archeologia, arte antica, arte moderna e contemporanea, considerando alcuni casi specifi ci di esposizioni temporanee come la Biennale di Venezia e la Quadriennale di Roma. La conclusione è dedicata ad una rifl essione sui viaggi di Adolf Hitler in Italia in rapporto al patrimonio artistico e architettonico. The film heritage of the National Institute Luce collects several hundred hours of footage covering the history of the exhibitions and museums of the ‘900 in Italy and beyond. Since its inception in 1925, the LUCE (The Union Educational Film sent his workers to document museums, galleries and exhibitions, especially on the occasion of offi cial visits of kings and members of the fascist regime. Newsreels and educational documentaries and that for some years on-line are also visible on the Archive audiovisual database, and partly also on the dedicated YouTube channel. The paper draws a fi rst reconnaissance of a vast landscape of documentary materials and informative, giving regard to the use of the medium of fi lm to document the temporary exhibitions and museums. The importance of the LUCE’s material, which in 1931 also becomes sound, offers a glimpse still little known of this form of documentation in relation to the contemporary debate on museums, including propaganda and pedagogical use of the image. Ways visual and textual presentation strategies are examined distinguishing among the museums of archeology, ancient art, modern and contemporary art, considering some specifi c cases of temporary exhibitions like the Venice Biennale and the Rome Quadrenniale. The conclusion is dedicated to a refl ection on Adolf Hitler travels in Italy in relation to the artistic and architectural heritage.

  20. L’importanza della “fiducia” nei rapporti tra i membri della Soka Gakkai in Italia - The importance of “trust” in the relationships among the members of Soka Gakkai in Italy

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maria Giulia Pezzi

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available This article considers the analysis of trust issues among Buddhist Sect Soka Gakkai members in the Italian town of Monza. Soka Gakkai is a religious organization which bases its doctrine on the teachings of the Buddhist monk Nichiren Daishonin, who lived in the thirteenth century in Japan, and which has rapidly grown in Italy since the late 1970s. The organization is constituted by official members and neophytes, who interact on a daily basis in a familiar environment, with a high degree of intimacy and informality. Although one cannot account the existence of a proper “clergy”, Soka Gakkai is constituted through a strict pyramidal organization, which influences the ways in which members interact. Trust among members can be considered as a core issue, and is seen as composed by three elements – instrumental, moral and emotive. Moreover, to analyze the attitudes of Soka Gakkai members toward themselves, but also towards fellow members, Soka Gakkai, its leaders and the religious doctrine, it is useful to use the concepts of “trust in trust” and “distrust in distrust”, starting from the assumption that Soka Gakkai provides the devotees with a definition of self to which the member is required to conform, but that can also be manipulated in circumstances affected by uncertainty, as the conversion to a new religion can be.

Diversity values exhibit no apparent correlation with a number of environmental and biocoenotic parameters of non-anthropic origin - i.e.: district age, height on sea level, latitude, biocoenotic (Renkonen's and faunistic (Faith's affinities. Conversely, a clearly significant, negative correlation with landscape anthropization was shown, revealing the importance of man's impact in shaping functional connections in the terrestrial communities of studied region. Riassunto L'esame del sistema trofico in argomento in 6 distretti vulcanici del Lazio ha posto in evidenza che la diversità biotica è significativamente e inversamente correlata con l'antropizzazione territoriale, ma non con altri fattori ambientali di origine anantropica.

    ABSTRACT: The paper critically analyzes the opinions given by the Advocate General to the European Court of Justice in case C-157/15 and in case C-188/15. Should Article 2(2(a of Council Directive 2000/78/EC of 27 November 2000 establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation be interpreted as meaning that the prohibition on wearing, as a female Muslim, a headscarf at the workplace does not constitute direct discrimination where the employer’s rule prohibits all employees from wearing outward signs of political, philosophical and religious beliefs at the workplace? (case C-157/15. Must Article 4(1 of the same Council Directive be interpreted as meaning that the wish of a customer of an information technology consulting company no longer to have the information technology services of that company provided by an employee, a design engineer, wearing an Islamic headscarf, is a genuine and determining occupational requirement, by reason of the nature of the particular occupational activities concerned or of the context in which they are carried out?

    Full Text Available L’emigrazione italiana verso il continente americano ha rappresentato un fenomeno dell’età contemporanea di ingenti dimensioni: la grandissima comunità italiana negli Stati Uniti è stata oggetto di numerosi approfondimenti storiografici, letterari, cinematografici, oltre a costituire ormai parte integrante della storia, dell’economia e, in genere, della società americana. Tuttavia, una parte degli emigranti scelse differenti mete: l’America Latina, il Canada. Questo articolo si sofferma sulla nascita e l’integrazione nell’economia canadese della prima comunità italiana −a inizio ‘900− che avrebbe costituito la base per flussi migratori successivi più cospicui, nel secondo dopoguerra. La ricerca, di taglio storico-economico, mette in luce soprattutto l’aspetto finanziario della vicenda, e presenta un’analisi dettagliata –basata sulla documentazione del Servizio Emigrati dell’Archivio Storico del Banco di Napoli– del servizio di raccolta e spedizione in patria delle rimesse degli emigrati da parte delle banche canadesi incaricate: un fenomeno che andò incrementandosi con la crescita della comunità italo-canadese. The Italian emigration to America was a phenomenon of huge dimensions of the contemporary age: the large Italian community in the US has been the subject of numerous insights historiographical, literary, film, besides being now an integral part of the history, of the economy and, in general, of the American society. However, part of the emigrants chose different destinations: Latin America, Canada. This article focuses on the birth and the integration in the Canadian economy of the first Italian community −at the beginning of '900− which would have formed the basis for increased levels of migratory flows, after World War II. The research, historical-economic cutting, highlights especially the financial aspect of the story, and presents a detailed analysis −based on the documentation of the Migrant Service of the Historical Archive of the Banco di Napoli− about the collection and delivery at home of remittances from the Canadian banks responsible: a phenomenon that incremented with the growth of the Italian-Canadian community.

  15. Aortopexy for the treatment of tracheomalacia in children: review of the literature

    Science.gov (United States)

    2012-01-01

    preoperatori, anche se le ALTE e la broncoscopia venivano considerate rispettivamente un’indicazione assoluta all’aortopessi e il “gold standard” diagnostico per la tracheomalacia. Venivano riportate differenze negli approcci chirurgici e nei dettagli tecnici, e lo stesso termine di aortopessi veniva usato per indicare diverse procedure chirurgiche. In ogni caso, indipendentemente dall’approccio o tecnica utilizzati, l’efficacia dell’aortopessi veniva riportata come elevata nella maggioranza dei casi (più dell’80%). Un sottogruppo di pazienti particolarmente delicato è rappresentato da quelli con reflusso gastroesofageo associato, nei quali sarebbe indicata una fundoplicatio. Altri trattamenti della tracheomalacia, quali stent tracheale, sembrano gravati da una maggiore percentuale di insuccessi, morbidità severa e mortalità. PMID:23110796

    simpaticectomia lombare e un'opzione terapeutica complementare, destinata a quei pazienti con grave arteriopatia perierica degli srti inferiori, allo stadio terminale, che presentino dolore a riposo e gagrena e che non vengano riconosciuti idonei per un tentativo di rivascolarizzazione chirurgica. La simpatectomia lombare chirurgica, con tecnica tradizionale, e stata ampiamente utilizzata in passato, ma, in virtu dell'invasivita, e stata nel tempo accantonata a favore delle tecniche percutanee, anche se recentemente sono stati riportati casi di trattamento con tecnica laparoscopica. La simpaticectomia lombare percutanea e invece un'opzione terapeutica sicura, poco costosa e facilmente disponibile. Riportiamo la nostra esperienza su 19 casi, eseguiti sotto controllo TC. Materiale e metodi: Tra il 1998 e il 2002, la procedura di simpaticolisi percutanea sotto controllo TC e stata effettuata in 19 pazienti. Tutti i pazienti presentavano un'arteriopatia degli arti inferiori al IV stadio di Fontaine, con dolore a riposo e gangrena; non erano stati considerati idonei per un tentativo di rivascolarizzazione chirurgica. Due aghi da 22 G, lunghi 15 cm, sono stati utilizzati per iniettare fenolo a livello di L2 e L4. I segni dell'interruzione dell'attivita simpatica compaiono 2'-15' dopo la procedura e comprendono calore e arrossamento. Risultati: La procedura si e rivelata semplice, sicura, ben tollerata dai pazienti, con una bassa percentuale di complicanze. Dei 19 pazienti, 9 (47.3%) hanno mostrato un miglioramento del quadro clinico, mentre 5 hanno fatto registrare un peggioramento della loro condizione ischemica nei mesi successivi. Discussione: I risultati suggeriscono che la procedura di simpaticectomia lombare percutanea e in grado di causare un blocco del plesso simpatico nei pazienti con un'arteriopatia degli arti inferiori in fase avanzata. L'assistenza fornita dalla TC consente un'elevata precisione nella somministrazione

  1. The Italian bat roost project: a preliminary inventory of sites and conservation perspectives

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2005-01-01

    . Only 52.6% of roosts selected for their special conservation interest were located within protected areas, including areas proposed as Sites of Community Importance (92/43/EEC Directive. The situation is particularly remarkable in Sardinia, which hosts 24.7% of the selected sites of national importance, and only 29.2% of these are within protected areas. The results highlight major knowledge gaps, from both the geographical and species perspectives. There is an urgent need to encourage roost surveying, activate roost protection measurements and initiate demographic monitoring, giving priority to the roosts identified as sites of special conservation interest. Riassunto Progetto Roost Chirotteri Italia: inventario preliminare dei siti e indicazioni sulle strategie di conservazione Il Progetto Roost Chirotteri Italia, avviato dal Gruppo Italiano Ricerca Chirotteri nel 1999, si propone la realizzazione di una banca dati nazionale dei siti di rifugio utilizzati dai chirotteri. Obiettivo a breve termine è stilare un inventario dei roost e individuare quelli di maggiore importanza conservazionistica, ai fini di un'attivazione prioritaria di interventi concreti di tutela. L'archivio considera i dati rilevati a partire dal 1990, comprendendo tutte le informazioni ricavabili dalla letteratura e dati inediti. Sono state finora archiviate 1243 segnalazioni, relative a 352 particelle UTM 10 x 10 km e 750 roost, dei quali 167 utilizzati per lo svernamento (roost S, 244 per il parto e l'allevamento della prole (roost R e 431 per il riposo diurno ed eventualmente altre funzioni biologiche non accertate o non considerate nell'ambito dell'indagine (roost X.

    Full Text Available Chi all’interno dell’Offi ce International des Musées (OIM, all’indomani della prima guerra mondiale, lavorava alla ridefi nizione del ruolo dei musei, ripensandoli come luoghi di dialogo interculturale e di incontro della società presente con il proprio passato, considerava il ruolo sociale del museo e la sua funzione conservativa come parte della stessa riforma culturale. In questo scenario l’inchiesta condotta nel 1932 dall’OIM è stata occasione di confronto tra paesi membri della Società delle Nazioni sulla fi gura di ‘restauratore di opere d’arte’. Se ne considerano i percorsi formativi, fi no ad arrivare alla regolamentazione della concorrenza, valutando aspetti metodologici, critici, etici. Le posizioni che emergono dai documenti dell’Archivio dell’OIM mostrano le intersezioni tra scelte culturali e processi storico-politici, rivelano signifi cative differenze sul ruolo attribuito alla diagnostica e alla critica dalle diverse culture nazionali. L’analisi di quanto emerge da quei documenti offre l’occasione per rifl ettere su alcuni percorsi storici che hanno costituito le radici dell’attuale cultura italiana del restauro, permette di soffermarsi sul rapporto dell’Italia con gli specifi ci percorsi della cultura internazionale. Ne emergono elementi utili a considerare da un punto di vista storico i processi di trasformazione ora in atto proprio nell’ambito della formazione dei restauratori di beni culturali. In the aftermath of WW1, those working in the Offi ce International des Musées (OIM to redefi ne the role of museums – rethinking them as intercultural dialogue and meeting places of the society with its own past – considered the social role of the museum and its conservative mission as part of the same cultural reform. In this scenario the survey conducted in 1932 by the OIM was an opportunity for discussion between members OIM of the League of Nations countries on the fi gure of ‘restorer of works of art’. Aspects such as training courses, regulation of competition were analysed, taking into account theplaces methodological, historical, critical and ethical aspects. The positions that emerge from IOM Archive documents show the intersections between cultural choices and historical-political processes, reveal signifi cant differences in the role attributed to diagnostic and criticism by different national cultures. The analysis of what emerges from these documents provides an opportunity to refl ect on some historic trails that shaped the roots of the Italian culture of restoration, allowing one to dwell on Italy’s relationship with the specifi c routes of international culture. It also gives useful elements to consider, from a historical point of view, the transformation process now in place in the training of restorers of cultural heritage.

  4. Vittimizzazione e senso di insicurezza nei confronti del crimine: un'analisi empirica sul caso italiano / Criminal victimization and people's perception of safety: an Italian research / Victimisation criminelle et sentiment d'insécurité: une recherche empirique en Italie

    Full Text Available In this paper the relationship between criminal victimization and people’s perception of safety is explored. At first sight, the connection between these phenomena seems to be obvious: victims of a crime are probably more unsafe than non victimized people. However, many studies have found that the relationship between fear and crime is more complex than expected. In the first part of the paper the mixed research results are discussed and some reasons of this heterogeneity are identified. In the second part an analysis is conducted on data from the Italian Survey on Citizens’ Safety (Indagine sulla sicurezza dei cittadini. The main findings indicate that victimization affects both feelings of safety in the streets and in one’s own home, but with different intensity. Theft and snatch victimization is associated with safety in the streets, whereas burglary victimization with the perception of safety in one’s own home. Multivariate binomial regression models show that in Italy previous victimization contributes to increase the probability of feeling unsafe both in the streets and in one’s own home, all else being equal.Le but de cet article est d'analyser la relation entre l'expérience de victimisation et le sentiment d'insécurité collective. Au premier regard, la relation entre ces deux phénomènes peut sembler évidente: le sentiment d'insécurité est peut-être plus fort chez les victimes de crime que chez ceux qui n'ont jamais été frappés par le crime. Toutefois, beaucoup d'études ont montré que la relation entre l'insécurité et le crime est plus complexe qu'on ne l'avait prévu. Dans la première partie de cet article, nous discutons les résultats contradictoires des études mentionnées plus haut et identifions quelques-un des motifs de cette hétérogénéité. Dans la deuxième partie, nous effectuons une analyse sur les données de l'enquête italienne sur la sécurité des citoyens (Indagine sulla sicurezza dei cittadini. Les résultats montrent que la victimisation subie influence aussi bien le sentiment d'insécurité éprouvé dans les rues qu'au domicile, mais ces deux perceptions ont une intensité différente. Le sentiment d'insécurité dans les rues est plus fort chez les personnes victimes d'un vol ou d'un vol à l'arachée tandis que le sentiment d'insécurité au domicile est plus répandu chez ceux qui ont subis un cambriolage. Les modèles de régression multivariés indiquent qu'en Italie la victimisation subie contribue à augmenter la probabilité d'éprouver aussi bien le sentiment d'insécurité dans les rue qu'au domicile.

    Full Text Available Quantification of the genetic distance between populations is essential in many genetic research programs. Several formulae were proposed for the estimation of genetic distance between populations using gene frequency data. But the selection of a suitable measure for estimating genetic distance between real-world human populations is a very difficult task despite the widely used measure Neis D. The present study was undertaken to estimate the genetic distance between Barak Valley Muslims (BVM and other twenty-four nations using seven different measures with ABO blood group gene frequency data for comparative analysis and to estimate the correlation coefficients between distance measures and to work out the linear regression equations. Seven genetic distance measures namely Neis D, Neis Nm, La, Neis Da, Dc, Re and Neis Ne were estimated between BVM and other 24 nations enroute the journey of mankind from Africa that commenced about 200,000 years ago (www.bradshawfoundation.com. Correlation coefficients between Neis D with other measures were estimated to find out which other genetic distance measures were closely related to Neis D. Neis D showed highly significant (p=0.01 positive correlation with Cavalli-Sforza and Edwards chord distance Dc (0.90, Reynolds Re (0.90, Neis Da (0.74 and Neis Ne (0.63 but negative correlation with Neis Nm and La. Linear regression equations of Neis D with other distance measures were estimated as Da = -0.80 + 1.34D, Dc = 1.91 + 4.44D, Re = -0.51 + 0.24D and Ne = -7.60 + 1.30D.

  9. NEIMiner: nanomaterial environmental impact data miner.

    2013-01-01

    As more engineered nanomaterials (eNM) are developed for a wide range of applications, it is crucial to minimize any unintended environmental impacts resulting from the application of eNM. To realize this vision, industry and policymakers must base risk management decisions on sound scientific information about the environmental fate of eNM, their availability to receptor organisms (eg, uptake), and any resultant biological effects (eg, toxicity). To address this critical need, we developed a model-driven, data mining system called NEIMiner, to study nanomaterial environmental impact (NEI). NEIMiner consists of four components: NEI modeling framework, data integration, data management and access, and model building. The NEI modeling framework defines the scope of NEI modeling and the strategy of integrating NEI models to form a layered, comprehensive predictability. The data integration layer brings together heterogeneous data sources related to NEI via automatic web services and web scraping technologies. The data management and access layer reuses and extends a popular content management system (CMS), Drupal, and consists of modules that model the complex data structure for NEI-related bibliography and characterization data. The model building layer provides an advanced analysis capability for NEI data. Together, these components provide significant value to the process of aggregating and analyzing large-scale distributed NEI data. A prototype of the NEIMiner system is available at http://neiminer.i-a-i.com/.

    Previously, a linear relationship has been found between net energy intake (NEI) and dietary chewing index (CI) of the diet for different types of cattle. Therefore, we propose to generalize and calibrate this relationship into a new model for direct prediction of NEI by dairy cows from CI values...... a value of 2, implying a constant maximum daily chewing time. The intercept NEI0 in the regression of NEI on CINE may be interpreted as metabolic net energy intake capacity of the cows fed without physical constraints on intake. Based on experimental data, the maximum chewing time was estimated as 1...

    Organization model is one of the most important models of Nuclear Enterprise Information System (NEIS). Scientific and reasonable organization model is the prerequisite that NEIS has robustness and extendibility, and is also the foundation of the integration of heterogeneous system. Firstly, the paper describes the conceptual model of the NEIS on ontology chart, which provides a consistent semantic framework of organization. Then it discusses the relations between the concepts in detail. Finally, it gives the formalized description of the organization model of NEIS based on six-tuple array. (authors)

  17. Evaluation of gaseous emissions produced in the tests on the demonstration plant for sludge drying and incineration; Valutazione delle emissioni gassose prodotte nelle prove sull'impianto dimostrativo di essiccamento e di incenerimento di fanghi

    -current operation mode. This was depending on the excessive length of the drum designed also for counter-current mode, so that ashes melted in the first part solidify in the second part because of heat losses. In conclusion, plant operation resulted satisfactory, also under the environmental aspects, despite of the very severe test conditions, with high chlorine content and the presence of aromatic compounds and copper, which acts as catalyst in the novo-synthesis of dioxins. Incineration and co-incineration of sewage sludge and hazardous compounds were therefore demonstrated to be a safe and viable disposal option. [Italian] L' incenerimento dei fanghi di depurazione e' una valida altenativa ai sistemi utilizzati per lo smaltimento (utilizzazione agricola, discarica controllata) nei casi in cui si trovino difficolta' di applicazione per la presenza di inquinanti in concentrazione superiore ai limiti consentiti o per situazioni contingenti spesso non prevedibili. Tuttavia, esso puo' essere causa di emissione in atmosfera di microinquinanti inorganici (metalli pesanti) e organici (IPA, PCDD, PCDF), oltre che di materiale particolato e di ossidi di azoto e di carbonio (NO{sub x} e CO), e composti acidi; cio' ha ingenerato una forte avversione popolare che ha ostacolato la utilizzazione. L'Istituto di Ricerca sulle Acque del CNR ha pertanto realizzato, nell'area dell'impianto di depurazione di Bari Ovest, un impianto dimostrativo di incenerimento costituito essenzialmente da due forni, uno a letto fluido e uno a tamburo rotante, da un essiccatore, da un sistema di recupero termico e da una sezione di abbattimento delle polveri e degli altri macroinquinanti, e ha messo a punto un programma di ricerca per verificare la compatibilita' ambientale e il rispetto della normativa vigente nell'incenerimento dei fanghi con particolare riferimento alle emissioni di microinquinanti organici ed al destino dei metalli. I microinquinanti organici

Le densità più elevate sono state registrate nei territori protetti (0,98 tane/km², quelle più basse nelle Aree a gestione sociale della caccia (0,41/km² e nelle Aziende faunistico-venatorie (0,33/km². La densità è risultata correlata positivamente con l'altitudine media (r=0,443; Putilizzati i cespugliati. Le condizioni di micro-habitat preferite corrispondono a una struttura della vegetazione tale da garantire una sufficiente insolazione, libertà dei movimenti in vicinanza della tana e nello stesso tempo buona protezione della stessa. La maggior parte delle tane (69% è collocata entro 500 m dalle zone abitate. La distribuzione delle tane nel territorio considerato dipende in gran parte dalla disponibilità di prede e di luoghi sufficientemente protetti dal disturbo e dalla persecuzione dell'uomo.

  19. Biochemical characterization and novel inhibitor identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Endonuclease VIII 2 (Rv3297

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kiran Lata

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available Nei2 (Rv3297 is a DNA Base Excision Repair (BER glycosylase that is essential for survival of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in primates. We show that MtbNei2 is a bifunctional glycosylase that specifically acts on oxidized pyrimidine-containing single-stranded, double-stranded, 5’/3’ fork and bubble DNA substrates. MtbNei2 possesses Uracil DNA glycosylase activity unlike E. coli Nei. Mutational studies demonstrate that Pro2 and Glu3 located in the active site are essential for glycosylase activity of MtbNei2. Mutational analysis demonstrated that an unstructured C-terminal zinc finger domain that was important for activity in E. coli Nei and Fpg, was not required for the glycosylase activity of MtbNei2. Lastly, we screened the NCI natural product compound database and identified three natural product inhibitors with IC50 values ranging between 41.8 μM-92.7 μM against MtbNei2 in in vitro inhibition assays. Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR experiments showed that the binding affinity of the best inhibitor, NSC31867, was 74 nM. The present results set the stage for exploiting this important target in developing new therapeutic strategies that target Mycobacterial BER.

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available La costruzione di schemi di classificazione dei record è un tema poco sviluppato a cui la disciplina archivistica ha finora dedicato poca attenzione. Non si tratta di un argomento di facile comprensione, dal momento che gli schemi di classificazione dei record sono gli strumenti principali utilizzati tradizionalmente per l'organizzazione e la gestione dei record. Questo articolo esamina gli elementi presi in considerazione nella costruzione di uno schema di classificazione, così come le modalità attraverso le quali questi elementi sono correlati. Vengono inoltre esaminate le relazioni gerarchiche e non gerearchiche, ed identificate le possibili future direzioni della ricerca su questi temi.

    2010-02-01

    Full Text Available  L'attuale assetto dell'area metropolitana di Istanbul evidenzia con chiarezza il rapporto tra sistema della mobilità urbana ed espansione incontrollata del costruito. Gli strumenti di pianificazione utilizzati nel passato si sono rivelati inefficaci ed hanno prodotto una città in larga parte illegale che oggi appare ingovernabile. Tuttavia anche i nuovi strumenti del piano strategico e del progetto urbano sembrano mostrare i propri limiti. Una maggiore integrazione tra politiche urbane ancora troppo settoriali può contribuire alla definizione di approcci realmente innovativi.

    2016-01-01

    Previously, a linear relationship has been found between net energy intake (NEI) and dietary chewing index (CI) of the diet for different types of cattle. Therefore, we propose to generalize and calibrate this relationship into a new model for direct prediction of NEI by dairy cows from CI values...... (CINE; min/MJ of NE). Furthermore, we studied the forage-to-concentrate substitution rate in this new NEI model. To calibrate the model on a diverse set of situations, we built a database of mean intake from 14 production experiments with a total of 986 primi- and multiparous lactating dairy cows......, and disturbance, across and within experiments on independent data from 19 experiments including 812 primi- and multiparous lactating dairy cows of different breeds fed 80 different diets ad libitum. The NEI model predicted NEI with an MSPE of 8% of observed, and across the 19 experiments the error central...

    Full Text Available L’applicabilità della mediazione familiare in contesto di violenza domestica (VD è oggetto di discussione. Scopo della ricerca è esplorare il ruolo della mediazione familiare nella gestione degli affidi dei figli in situazione di VD, analizzando le esperienze, conoscenze e significati di differenti attori sociali, quali avvocati, assistenti sociali e donne separate con figli, vittime di VD, e la documentazione inerente. I risultati mostrano che la VD viene occultata durante la mediazione. I professionisti spesso ignorano la VD e di conseguenza applicano la mediazione; ex-coniugi e genitori vengono presentati come distinti; i pattern di potere e controllo agiti dal partner violento durante la relazione continuano in queste occasioni. La mediazione, che dovrebbe essere centrata sul miglior interesse del bambino, si focalizza sul miglior interesse dei padri. I professionisti non conoscono la Convenzione di Istanbul. La sicurezza di donne e bambini/e viene messa a rischio. Le recours à la médiation familiale dans le domaine de la violence conjugale (VC fait l’objet de débats. Cette recherche a pour but d’examiner le rôle de la médiation familiale dans les cas de garde d’enfants en situation de VC, analysant les expériences, les connaissances, les valeurs de différents acteurs sociaux (par exemple, avocats, travailleurs sociaux, femmes séparées avec enfants, victimes de VC ainsi que des documents ad hoc. Les résultats montrent que la VC est dissimulée pendant la médiation. Les professionnels souvent ignorent la VC et par conséquent utilisent la médiation ; ex-conjoints et parents sont par ailleurs présentés sous la forme de deux entités distinctes ; les modèles de pouvoir et de contrôle appliqués par le conjoint violent dans la vie familiale continuent d’être utilisés durant ces occasions. La médiation, qui devrait protéger avant tout l'intérêt de l'enfant, s’adresse au contraire à l’intérêt des pères. Les professionnels ne connaissent pas la Convention d’Istanbul. La sécurité des femmes et de leurs enfants est mise en danger. The family mediation’s applicability in domestic violence (DV cases is discussed. Aim of this research is to explore the role of family-mediation in the management of child custody in DV cases, analysing the experiences and knowledge of different social actors - lawyers, social workers and separated women with children, victims of DV - and legal documents. Results showed that violence against women and children was concealed. Professionals ignore DV and so apply mediation as a rule; ex-spouses and parents are presented as distinct from each other; the perpetrators’ patterns of power and control continue during mediation. Family mediation should be focused on the children’s best interest but it is focused on the fathers’ best interest. Professionals unknown the Istanbul Convention. The safety of children and women was put again at risk.

    In the last 10 years several organic compounds have been used to realize efficient electro luminescent devices, which are being competitive with the well known and older semiconductor diodes LED. Among these new luminescent compounds, a special place is occupied by the metal-organic molecule Alq{sub 3}, which possesses an efficient band in the green region of the electromagnetic spectrum and is easily handled. However, the devices realised with Alq{sub 3} and other organic compounds, although several precautions have been implemented since the beginning, display a lifetime (defined as the time elapsed to get half emission intensity) of about 5000 h, which is considered a too short time for practical applications. The study of the chemical degradation of the molecule Alq{sub 3} and of the decrease of its photoluminescence has been the main concern of this work. The degradation has been attributed to the phenomenon of auto-oxidation, where the atmospheric oxygen plays a central role. Direct and simple experiments to verify whether the processes of auto-oxidation could be halted or retarded have been performed and, in the process, the organic compound BHT proved to be effective in attaining the desired effect. Indeed, this molecule belongs to the big family of Phenols which are well known in chemistry to be very strong antioxidant agents. In conclusion, the BHT compound and, by logical extension, other types of phenols and also appropriate organic compounds, are effective in increasing the lifetime of the photoluminescence of thin layers of Alq{sub 3} and, as a consequence, of OLED devices realized with molecules or polymers. This result is of great importance in the field of organic photo- and electro-luminescence both for practical and basic aspects.

  2. The oxidative DNA glycosylases of Mycobacterium tuberculosis exhibit different substrate preferences from their Escherichia coli counterparts.

    The DNA glycosylases that remove oxidized DNA bases fall into two general families: the Fpg/Nei family and the Nth superfamily. Based on protein sequence alignments, we identified four putative Fpg/Nei family members, as well as a putative Nth protein in Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. All four Fpg/Nei proteins were successfully overexpressed using a bicistronic vector created in our laboratory. The MtuNth protein was also overexpressed in soluble form. The substrate specificities of the purified enzymes were characterized in vitro with oligodeoxynucleotide substrates containing single lesions. Some were further characterized by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analysis of products released from gamma-irradiated DNA. MtuFpg1 has substrate specificity similar to that of EcoFpg. Both EcoFpg and MtuFpg1 are more efficient at removing spiroiminodihydantoin (Sp) than 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG). However, MtuFpg1 shows a substantially increased opposite base discrimination compared to EcoFpg. MtuFpg2 contains only the C-terminal domain of an Fpg protein and has no detectable DNA binding activity or DNA glycosylase/lyase activity and thus appears to be a pseudogene. MtuNei1 recognizes oxidized pyrimidines on both double-stranded and single-stranded DNA and exhibits uracil DNA glycosylase activity. MtuNth recognizes a variety of oxidized bases, including urea, 5,6-dihydrouracil (DHU), 5-hydroxyuracil (5-OHU), 5-hydroxycytosine (5-OHC) and methylhydantoin (MeHyd). Both MtuNei1 and MtuNth excise thymine glycol (Tg); however, MtuNei1 strongly prefers the (5R) isomers, whereas MtuNth recognizes only the (5S) isomers. MtuNei2 did not demonstrate activity in vitro as a recombinant protein, but like MtuNei1 when expressed in Escherichia coli, it decreased the spontaneous mutation frequency of both the fpg mutY nei triple and nei nth double mutants, suggesting that MtuNei2 is functionally active in vivo recognizing both guanine and cytosine oxidation products
